MD 22-23 - Title Hopes, Recent Failings and Resurrections

Matchday 22-23 is when the dust is starting to settle. The league slammed yet another 20 matches during 7 days. Is the league settled at the top and bottom? Is it time to focus on Champions League and Europe spots? We do a deep dive on the title hopes, recent failings and resurrections.

We review the Liverpool vs Man City game from a tactical perspective and from a player/s view. We discuss the dimming prospects of London rivals Tottenham and Arsenal. We give a first take on the Tuchel revolution from a tactical perspective and his history with several players. Finally, we cover the growing hope for Newcastle.

We are sponsored by the Premier League Guide. Moneyball for football. Opposition Analysis + Eye Candy. The current update available at and on Amazon. Please subscribe to Thinking Fan Football Club on Youtube and your favorite podcast platform.
