Between the Lines – 23/12/17


I started with Wizzard, finished with Shakin Stevens!

Premier League

Everton 0                                       (Att 39181)

Chelsea 0

This weeks featured game was played at Goodison Park home of Everton Football Club. The Toffees faced a tough test against last years champions Chelsea. The game finished goalless, which is always a shame on radio! Chelsea almost opened the scoring early on in this game, if it wasn’t for Phil Jagielka and Ashley Williams goal line defensive heroics. Evertons GK Jordan Pickford was yet again impressive, so that’s a positive. To summarise a great defensive performance from Big Sams boys!

As well as keeping an eye on the early kick off, I looked ahead and previewed all the festive football!

La Liga

Real Madrid 0                           (Att 80264) 

D Carvajal ( 🔴63)

Barcelona 3

L Suarez (⚽️54)

L Messi (⚽️64 pen)

A Vidal (⚽️90+3)

I don’t normally feature Spanish football on the show but with arguably the biggest game in world football going on I couldn’t resist! The El Classico kicked off midday today so I was able to feature the second half of the clash on the show. The first half finished goal-less, but Luis Suarez converted a brilliant cross from Roberto just after the break to make it 1-0 Barca! Soon after Carvajal was sent off in the process giving away a penalty which was converted by Messi. Late on in the game Vidal added even more shame to the home team as he slotted in a third just before the full time whistle.

Music

Today on the show I played an array of Christmas hits including songs from Wham!, Darkness and Wizard.

I played a few indie and alternative tunes such as Are U Mine, Kiwi 🥝 and Creature Comforts as well!
