Between the Lines – 05/05/2018

Between the Lines 

This weeks show saw Stoke City relegated from the Premier League after 10 years in the division. 

Premier League

Stoke 1

Crystal Palace 2 

BET 365 Stadium

In a must win game for Stoke they fell short! 

The first goal of the game came from the Swiss wizard Xherdan Shaqiri, the winger converted a brilliant free kick.

Crystal Palace then got the equaliser through a great counter attack ending in a neat finish from midfielder McArthur.

As the clock ticked down on Stokes future in the Premier League a goal for the home side was all the fans wanted, but Roy’s men did the unthinkable and scored the winner in the closing embers of the match.

The goal from Van Aanholt all but secured relegation for the Potters. 

Stoke last 10 years PL history.

  • Won automatic promotion back in 2007/08 
  • Was Premier League representatives in the Europa League in the 2011/12 season
  • Finished 9th under Mark Hughes in the 2013/14, 2014/15 and the 2015/16 season
  • Broke Transfer record transfer fee window by signing Imbula (£18.3 Million).
  • Record Premier League win: 6–1 v Liverpool (24 May 2015)

National League

We kept a close eye on the National League Play Off Semi Final. Tranmere Rovers were victors in a dramatic extra time win against Ebbsfleet.

Music 

This week we played a mix for the summer! I’ll leave a few hits of the playlist below.

Between the Lines – 28/04/2018

Don Broco kicked off this weeks music in an action packed show.

NATIONAL LEAGUE

It was the final day of the National League and as per usual all the games kicked off early. Below see the results of a dramatic final day.

  • Barrow Chester 
    – Barrow were playing against already relegated Chester, although losing Barrow stayed up due to a Woking defeat against Play Off chasing Dover.
  • Boreham Wood Guiseley 1
    – Boreham wood secured the play offs and a 4th placed against relegated Guiseley.
  • Gateshead Leyton Orient 3
    The Os ended the season in fashion against 17th placed Gateshead. Perhaps a sign of things to come for the Orient.
  • Macclesfield Town Dagenham & Redbridge 0
    The Champions ended an impressive season with a win!
  • Maidenhead United Bromley 2
    The real surprise of the day came at York Road as Play off hopefuls were dashed by mid-table Maidenhead United.
  • Maidstone United FC Halifax Town 0
  • Solihull Moors Eastleigh 4
  • Sutton United Aldershot Town 1
  • Torquay United Ebbsfleet United 1
    Ebbsfleet hanged on to keep their play off spot, with only being 1 point in the play offs it was a nervy last day for United.
  • Tranmere Rovers Hartlepool United 2
    Hartlepool climbed to 15th with an impressive away win against 2nd placed Tranmere.
  • Woking Dover Athletic 2
    A win was needed for Woking survival hopes. In a match where Dover were down to 10 min fans of Woking will be disappointed they couldn’t capitalise on Barrow defeat at Chester. This game added drama to the final day as Dover scored a last minute winner.
  • Wrexham AFC Fylde 0
    The Play Off for the Play Offs for Wrexham as a win for The Dragons (Wrexham) would see them climb from 10th into the Play offs, knocking AFC Fylde out of the Play Offs on the final day!

Formula 1

This week the Formula 1 reached round 4 which was staged in Azerbaijan. We watched on as Vettel posted a time of 1:41:498 which gave him his 3rd Pole Position in a row. The German was followed by Title chasing rival Hamilton, in 3rd Bottas. Two Red Bulls followed with Riccardo the quicker of the pair.

Premier League

LIVERPOOL 0 – 0 STOKE CITY 

Apart from a Salah miss and a good point for Stoke not much to report back on from this weeks early game.

Between the Lines – 21/04/2018

West Brom and Liverpool took part in an exciting 2-2 draw on this weeks Between the Lines. ⚽⚽⚽️

PREMIER LEAGUE

West Brom 2

Liverpool 2

A late Rondon bullet header snatched two points away from Liverpool in the Lunchtime Kickoff! In a game where anything less than a win could relegate West Brom this weekend, Liverpool’s Danny Ings scored his first Premier League goal in two years in the fourth minute. The rest of the first half didn’t give us any more clearcut chances so the sides went in for half time with Liverpool in the lead. 

In the 72nd minute a beautifully weighted through ball from Chamberlin connected with Salah. The Egyptian then chipped the keeper and Liverpool lead was doubled, West Brom were all but out of this game. Jake Livermore then scored a close range rebound shot to give the Magpies hope. In the last embers of normal time West Brom striker levelled the game with a brilliant header beating Klavan to grab a draw against the Champion League Semi Finalists. 

STAT OF THE SHOW 

SALAH’S 31st GOAL OF THE SEASON HAS MATCHED THE RECORD AMOUNT OF GOALS IN A 38 GAME SEASON (Premier League).

MUSIC

Firstly on today’s show we paid tribute to an EDM music legend Avicii. The hit maker sadly passed away at the young age of 28.

Between the Lines – 14/04/18

3 Goals in 8 minutes made all the difference in this weeks featured game.

PREMIER LEAGUE

SOUTHAMPTON 2

(21 Tadic ⚽️, 60 Bednarek ⚽️)

CHELSEA 3 

(70, 78 Giroud ⚽️⚽️, 75 Hazard ⚽️)

A win in this game would see Southampton climb out of the drop zone, so when Tadic opened the scoring against last years champions the stadium erupted. As the ref blew the whistle for the first half the general feeling was that Chelsea were under performing in a season that will already go down as a disappointment.

The second half began, in opening stages it was clear that Chelsea had control of the game in an attacking point of view. The question was did they have the end product. Well somehow in amogst all of the Chelsea poccession, Polish Premier League debutant Bednarek scored on the hour mark to double the Saints lead. At this point myself and pundits across the country starting hinting at the fact this could be a huge win for Southampton in the scheme of the relegation battle.

Giroud diving header sparked the beginning of the end for Southampton yesterday. The Frenchmen bullet header was the first of three goals in this fixture. Just 5 minutes after the opening goal for Chelsea the ball found itself to Eden Hazard, a simple finish followed inside the Saints defensive half. Last but not least Giroud completed his brace with a brilliant shot which just crept in past the keepers post.

The Worst Merseyside Derby Ever? – Between the Lines

The Worst Merseyside Derby Ever?

This weeks show featured an early kick off that had the potential to be brilliant! With Liverpool in great form after an emphatic victory against Man City in the Champions League. The game was already a disappointment when the team news was released as Klopp named a much rested starting eleven with Champions League in mind. The likes of Salah was out injured as well.

Everton named a full strength starting 11 with the likes of Rooney, Walcott and Tosun all starting.

The game finished 0-0 both teams didn’t really do enough to get the winner, although Tosun and Calvert Lewin could both had put the Toffees ahead late on.

Golds Galore for England

With one eye on Merseyside the other was on the Gold Coast in Austrilia for the Commonwealth Games. We recapped all the action so far you can see a medal tally below.

Between the Lines – 24th March 2018

F1, International Football and Boxing previews all featured on this weeks edition of Between the Lines

F1 IS BACK!

As always on Between the Lines we follow Formula 1, so we welcomed it back with open arms. This week we looked at The Australian Grand Prix which is raced at a track called Albert Park. We gave a review of this weeks qualifying, the defending World Champion captured Pole Position with a stunning record breaking lap around the historic track down under.

 INTERNATIONAL FOOTBALL SPECIAL (W.C PREVIEW)

This weeks football content started by talking about England’s impressive win away from home against the Netherlands. The Three Lions won one goal to nil with Manchester United’s Lingard grabbing the goal to give the lads a confidents boost ahead of the Cup later in the year. This victory will be sweet for England’s Gareth Southgate, a line-up many people questioned before the big kick off as he choose a back three with Kyle Walker playing as a RCB.

Along with the England result we looked at all the other matches as well from a action filled Friday Night of football! We previewed all the matches coming up as well including Englands clash with Italy at the home of English Football Wembley.

With it being an International break I thought it was only right to do a World Cup preview (team-by-team guide). Listen back below!

Between the Lines – 17/03/18

QF DAY IN THE FA CUP ON ST PATRICKS DAY!

FA CUP QUARTER FINAL

SWANSEA CITY 0

TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR 3

Eriksen (11⚽️, 62⚽️)

Lamela (45+1⚽️)

On this weeks show we watched on as Tottenham were the first team to book themselves in the last 4 of the FA CUP.

We saw a complete domination in this match, a game that Spurs bossed in every factor.

SIX NATIONS

As well as it being Quarter Final day in the FA cup it was also finals day in the Six Nation. Italy narrowly missed out on their first win in this years tournament as Scotland beat them in a game which spurred up a lot of late Drama. Ireland had a great day away at Twickenham against England on their national holiday.

Between the Lines – 10/03/18

On this weeks show we watched on as two of the biggest rivals in English football went head to head!

PREMIER LEAGUE

Manchester United 2 

M.Rashford (14, 24)

Liverpool 1 

E.Bailly OG (66)

In a game between 2nd and 3rd the home took the advantage. The first goal came from David De Gea goal kick which went towards Lukaku, Lukaku then headed a ball in the path of Rashford. The youngster then went on an incredible run, skilled past Alexander Arnold then struck a sweet shot into the bottom corner. Just ten minutes later Rashford completed his second Premier League brace (his first coming on his PL debut against Arsenal).

As the game went on Liverpool gained great amounts of possession but didn’t really create any clear chances against the defensive Manchester United. This was until Senegalese winger Mane cross struck with Eric Bailly in the 66th minute. As the game came to an end Liverpool kept complying pressure to the Red Devils defence but couldn’t find a way through. The game finished 2-1 a result that put a five point gap between the two rivals in the League.

FORMULA 1 

I previewed the new Formula one season in the first hour as well. Looking closely at the pre season timings it looks as if it could three horse race this year. Mercedes, Ferrari and Red Bull all seem within a shout this year.

The new season starts 25th of March in Australia – Melbourne.

MUSIC 

We started this weeks show by playing Fall Out Boys – Hold Me Tight or Don’t.

Between the Lines – 24/02/2018

Leicester took on struggling Stoke City in this weeks featured match.

PREMIER LEAGUE

Leicester City 1            (31,769) 

J Butland (70 og)

Stoke City 1

Shaqiri (43)

After what was a quiet start to the first half Shaqiri scored his 9th goal from outside the box since joining Stoke. It was a lovely Curling shot from about 20 yards that caught out Kasper.

Late in the second, a mistake from Butland gifts Leicester a equaliser. But to say this performance from Butland was bad was unfair as after his mistake he made two crucial saves. The first a brilliant save from an superb Mahrez strike and secondly a save from close range from a Maguire shot this save went onto the post.

Overall a result both sides wouldn’t be happy with.

MUSIC

This week music selection was inspired by The Standon Calling lineup we started the show at 1 by playing Phoenix FM A List track Paradise by Standon Calling Headliner George Ezra.

Later in the show we played THE British Male Single the Year by Rag’N’Bone Man “Human” along with the song we also aired last years Standon Calling Festival interview with the man himself! Interestingly Rag’N’Bone talked of his song Human and how the song was just getting big. The interview was by Phoenix FM pro Steve Robertson check it out in the link below.

Between the Lines – 17/02/2018

Swansea took on Sheffield Wednesday for a place in the Quarter Finals of the FA Cup.

FA CUP ROUND 5

SHEFFIELD WEDNESDAY 0         

SWANSEA CITY 0

The match certainly didn’t live up to the hype…

In a game where the winner books theirself in the Quarter Finals, it was a draw 😴😂. So far in every round Swansea have drawn then won in the replay will the same occur in this replay? Sheffield Wednesday defender Prodl had a very Impressive performance making many crucial defensive clearances.

Tammy Abraham was unlucky not to win a penalty in the first half after a clear push. Swansea’s best chance came from defender Van Der Horrn as he had a strong header saved in the first half.

ESSEX AWAY DAYS

This is the first of my new weekly feature on Between the Lines. Essex Away Days is where we pick a random stadium in Essex and preview the football that is going on there!

THURROCK F.C. ~ SHIP LANE

This week we took a look at Thurrock F.C coached by Tony Gay. They play at a stadium called Ship Lane which holds 3,500 (524 seated), it is located in Aveley (east Essex).

Thurrock are playing Hendon this week in the Bostik Premier League. Thurrock are currently 13th in the league. Last time out Thurrock F.C lost to Harrow Borough due to two goals from Cumberbatch.

16 points from the play offs and 22 points from the drop. A mid-table finish looks like an likely outcome for Thurrock F.C a good season for a team who are new to the league as they won the Ryman League North play off last season.

ADDRESS & POSTCODE: Ship Ln, Aveley RM19 1YN

KEY MAN: Charlie Stimson (6 goals and 6 assists) 

 PYEONGCHANG 2018

During the show I was happy to announce that Team GB had won their first gold medal of the games!

Lizzy Yarnold retained her Gold Medal and also got a new track Record whilst doing so!

Harry Kane’s 101st goal was the difference between the two fierce north London Rivals. In a game that Spurs dominated, chances were limited for Arsenal. Alexandre Lacazette missed two late crucial chances for the Gunners, the second chance was a one-on-one with Lloris missed in injury time on the 94th minute! A record Premier League attendance saw Harry Kane nod in the winner on the 49th minute.

Between the Lines – 27/01/2018

Today’s show started with some class as we played James Brown – The Boss!

FA CUP ROUND 4

PETERBOURGH UNITED 1              (13,000 Att) 

Hughes (⚽️51)

LEICESTER CITY 5

Diabaté(⚽️9,⚽️87)

Iheanacho (⚽️12,⚽️29)

Ndidi(⚽️90+2)

An amazing Leicester performance saw debutant  Diabate and summer signing Iheanacho get two goals. Leicester didn’t take long to take a firm grip on this cup tie as they went two goals up after just 12 minutes. The ex Premier League Champs then made it 3 goals to the good as Iheanacho completed his brace.

Peterbourgh United then got a goal back to make it 3-1! Perhaps a glimmer of hope for the home fan but any sign of that was later ruined as Diabaté scored his second of the day! There was only time for another Leicester goal as Ndidi scored a goal which was assisted by the man of the moment Diabaté 👏! The game finished 5-1 a result that sees Claude Puel men into the FA CUP 5th Round.

Between the Lines – 20/01/18

Today’s show started lively as Chelsea scored 2 goals in 6 minutes against Brighton!

PREMIER LEAGUE

Brighton & Hove Albion 0                (30,700 Att) 

Chelsea 4

Hazard (3⚽️, 77⚽️)

Willian (6⚽️)

Moses (87⚽️)

This game started with a bang! As Eden Hazard scored in the 3rd minute to set Chelsea on the path to glory. Three minutes later Willian converted a brilliantly created team goal in arguably the goal of the match!

Brighton looked good to perhaps stage a comeback in this lunch time clash but brilliance from the Chelsea shot stopper Willy Cabellero stoped this from happening. The chance of the game from Brighton was most likely when Davy Propper’s header hit the crossbar. Around the 30th Brighton had a penalty shout as well, which was denied by Referee John Moss. In the aftermath of the pentaly being rejected Brightons Wing-back Schelotto was booked for his reaction towards the ref.

Hazard completed his brace in the 77th minute. This is a goal Brighton manager Chris Houghton will be mad about! The Brighton defender almost looked scared of the Belgium international as they kept backing off the winger as he approached the goal! To round off a great day for Chelsea FC Victor Moses made it 4 in the 87th minute.

So with this win for Chelsea they go above Liverpool into third, now only 3rd to Manchester United on goal difference.

EUROPEAN RUGBY CUP

Montpellier 14 – 23 Leinster 

Glasgow 28 – 21 Exeter

For the first time in a while I added Rugby Union to the show agenda of sports. The winners of these games will be granted a place in the Quarter Finals of the European Rugby Cup.

Exeter late surged wasn’t enough to beat the mighty Glasgow as they lost by seven.

Cardiff City 4                             (Att: 17703) 

C Paterson (⚽️46, ⚽️80)

J Ralls (⚽️55)

A Pilkington(⚽️90+4)

Sunderland 0

This game was always going to be an up hill challenge for Sunderland. Before kick off it was 3rd place against last placed (24th). The first half ended goalless, but within 90 seconds into the second half Paterson made the most of a  defensive mistake from Sunderland and scored! From now on it was all Cardiff a brilliant strike from Ralls and a last minute goal from Pilkington finished Sunderland off! Paterson completed his brace in the 80th minute as well.

Transfer Chat

The January transfer window is heating up for sure! On the show I spoke about plenty of rumours such as Kante to French giants PSG and one I was personally surprised with was Hernandez back to Manchester United!

I also revealed the results to a poll I ran on twitter on the show today. The question was “Where will Sanchez end up? The results were really mixed this suggests that this transfer saga has got everyone on edge as no one quite knows where the Chilean will end up.

Between the Lines – 06/01/18

It’s the first show of 2018! We had live FA Cup Third Round action as Fleetwood took on Leicester and Middlesbourgh played Sunderland.

FA CUP 3RD ROUND

Fleetwood Town 0                            (5,008 attendance)

Leicester 0 

Fleetwood of League 1 challenged Premier League heavyweights Leicester City in the 3rd Round clash today. The first half saw an impressive defensive display by Fleetwood Town to keep it goal-less. The game finished goal-less as well, but Fleetwood did have a good go with an array of chances, one even hitting the post. Overall a good day for Fleetwood Town. A team who will now have a replay at the King Power Stadium.


Middlesbourgh 2                          (26399 attendance)

R Gestede “10”

M Braithwaite “42”

Sunderland 0

Sunderland troubles continued in the cup against rivals Middlesbourgh. Goals from Rudy Gestede and Martin Braithwaite were the differences.


La Liga

I briefly mentioned the crazy incident that occurred in Atletico Madrids lunchtime match against Getafe C.F. In the game we saw Atletico Madrid striker and ex Chelsea forward Diego Costa score and get sent off in the same minute due to an excessive celebration which gave Costa a second yellow. The sending off did not effect the result as Madrid won 2 – 0.


League 1

Northampton Town 3                                  5,267 Attendance 

John-Joe O’Toole “19”

Matt Grimes “49” pen

Alex Revell “90”

Southend United 1 

Jason Demetriou “26” pen

Northampton against Southend United was another game that was in play during the show. As the game kicked off at 2pm we only could squeeze in the first half of the match.

Music

From the 60s with The Beatles “Paperback Writer” to current day music with NF “Let You Down”. It was safe to say we had a real mix to listen to today.

Divine Comedy, Manic Street Preachers, One Republic and The Kooks were all also played on today’s show.

Each week on Saturday at 1pm I’m live on Phoenix FM, tune in! 


Between the Lines – 30/12/17

Being just a day before New Years Eve, I had to play some New Years themed songs!

SPFL

Celtic 0

Rangers 0

The Old Firm Derby finished goal-less today. A game either side could’ve won!

Music

This weeks edition of Between the Lines started with a New Years themed hit, The Foo FightersNext Year. I also played PRINCE with his huge hit 1999 not long after to stick to the theme! The 3rd new years themed tune I played was Pulp – Disco 2000.

In the second hour U2 – New Year’s Day was the first themed song to be played! T Rex 20th Century Boy was another of the themed tunes. To end the show I choose the absolute New Years anthem The Final Countdown! 

Not only did I play songs that are New Years themed but I played songs that celebrated what a great year of music 2017 was! I played DespacitoHavana and also Liam Gallager – For What It’s Worth. My presenters pick track of the year Feel It Still was also played!

 


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!

Listen to Between the Lines 1-3pm each Saturday for updates of live football, team news, transfer news and much more! 


Between the Lines – 16/12/17

Between the Lines kicked off with one of The Wombats new tracks Lemon To A Knife Fight!

PL

Leicester City 0

O Ndidi (🔴 61)

Crystal Palace 3

 C Benteke (⚽️19)

W Zaha (⚽️40)

B Sako (⚽️90+4)

The featured game this week was Leicester City against Crystal Palace. The game saw Christian Benteke score Crystal Palace first away goal in over 900 minutes, then Wilfred Zaha made it two with a goal in the 40th minute. The second half saw birthday boy Ndidi sent off for Leicester with a second yellow card for an awful dive in the box. The game finished with a late superb curling strike from Sako (Crystal Palace midfielder). So overall a massive surprise result in the early PL kick off.

As always on Between the Lines team news from all five Premier League three’o’clock kick offs was delivered to the listeners.

F1

Although the season has just ended the previews have just began. I looked at the comfirmed 2018 calendar and was happy to see the return of the French GP!

Music

This weeks music selection was a real mix from the radio edit of Green Day – American Idiot to Bob Marley – Sun is Shining!

Listen to Between the Lines 1-3pm each Saturday for live updates of the early PL kickoff!
