The Offside Rule (We Get It!) Podcast 17: Premier League lacking quality, Diego Costa running out of time at Chelsea and the biggest football strops

Lynsey Hooper rejoins Kait Borsay and Mina Rzouki for this week’s The Offside Rule (We Get It!), brought to you by Continental Tyres. Rio Ferdinand has launched a stinging attack on the quality of English football, as England’s 4th place in the Champions League could be lost – but are we really that bad?

There have been some standout teams this season, so we give them an end-of-term report card in time for the Christmas break. Diego Costa seems to have had a strop after being an unused sub at the weekend, throwing his bib at manager Mourinho; this got us thinking about some of the best bust-ups in football – who said their former manager was a coward, and why were there fisticuffs at Fiorentina? Here at The Offside Rule, we’re big fans of WhatsApp, and we’re not the only ones – Luis Suarez uses it to pick up an injured Leo Messi from training, and to motivate his teammates! We have a stab at some of the WhatsApp groups around including footballers – there’s teasing, moaning and moral support groups!
