Lynsey Hooper and Kait Borsay are reunited with Hayley McQueen for podcast 9 of The Offside Rule (We Get It!), brought to you by Continental Tyres. Everyone’s gossiping about Chelsea’s poorest start to a season in 37 years, with Jose Mourinho adamant he’s still The Special One.
Chelsea have publicly backed their manager, which got us thinking about other big name managers who’ve struggled, but turned things around with the backing of the club owners. It’s not all doom and gloom for Chelsea fans, as Chelsea Ladies clinched the FAWSL 1 title this weekend; we look at the standout moments of the season, while Sue Smith gives us her final round-up of the season and looks ahead to the next Continental Tyres Cup matches. We’ve heard stories about fans getting snubbed by their footballing heroes, but it’s not often we hear about footballers being snubbed. Victor Anichebe recently tweeted about being ignored by two Game of Thrones stars this week; so what happens when other footballers meet their heroes? Which all-time great idolises Mr Bean, and who snubbed Mario Balotelli and his offer of gifts?
