This week’s Hold the BackPage kicks off with a look at the recent Premier League action where Manchester City finally lost a game. Ger McCarthy and Willie Gannon still seem confident about Roberto Mancini’s side and their title winning chances, unlike Neil Sherwin who suffers from the “Typical City” mentality.
There’s discussion about the other top sides as Manchester United, Liverpool and Arsenal all recorded weekend wins, while Norwich City come in for praise following their three points against Newcastle United.
Part two has Joseph Sexton on board to talk about the FIFA Club World Cup which involves Barcelona, who will most likely face Santos in the showpiece final. The lads then move on to La Liga and the weekend’s big Barcelona and Real Madrid clash which didn’t disappoint, and there’s an assessment of the tactis involved as well as Cristiano Ronaldo’s performance, or lack thereof.
Joseph also answers questions on a number of other sides in Spain before the show wraps up with Ger feeling very under appreciated.
