The Offside Rule (We Get It!) Podcast 35: The best fairy tales in football, emotional managers, and curing Newcastle’s away game curse with voodoo.

Sport Magazine editor and author of Kicking Off: How Women in Sport Are Changing the Game Sarah Shephard is our guest presenter on this week’s The Offside Rule (We Get It!), brought to you by Continental Tyres.

Leicester City are 5 games away from doing the unthinkable and winning the Premier League; the side currently sit 7 points clear at the top of the tables. Having narrowly avoided relegation last season it’s a real-life fairytale, so we reminisce and look at some of our other favourite sides that unexpectedly found themselves in dreamland. Their manager Claudio Ranieri got a little misty-eyed this weekend as his side inched closer to the league title; it’s not often we see a manager reach for his hanky, so we give you some of our best examples. Finally, Newcastle United manager Rafa Benitez has said the players he’s inherited have a serious mental problem when it comes to away matches. We play psychiatrist and come up with the solutions to Newcastle’s away game curse. From voodoo to squirting the players, we’ve got all of the answers!
