On this episode we round up the full weeks of Premier League action including the South-Coast team picking up 3 valuable points, Chelsea’s embarrassing defeat to Watford and Liverpool being robbed by the Referee’s Assistant.
At the end of the episode we adopt a team! Sorry to Forest Green Rovers as we have chosen you at that team! In future episodes we will be getting to know the club and the players and also review their matches in EFL League 2.
We had a quetion on his postion from @TheRealNick86 on Twiter:
Question for you Martin, after Chelsea’s poor run would you consider sacking conte now and bring in someone new or wait until the end of the season? Spurs and the gunners are hot on your heels now and something needs to change

My reply, No need to change him. I believe it was down to the players not him. Hear the rest of my response on the show.
On the plane were, fans, journalists and the Manchester United team. The Busby Babes were returning home after reaching the Semi-Final of the European Cup. 20 of the 44 that were on the Plane died at the scene and 3 more died later at hospital. Gone but never forgotten.

ADOPT A CLUB
We will come up with a better name for this section of the show but at the moment we are going for Adopt a Club Series. Original right?
As myself and Dan do not support the same clubs in the EPL, so have decided to follow a lower league side and we will dedicate a section of the show each week to that club. In the series we will get to know the Club, the players and the division they play in.
Choosing the right Club.
We didn’t want to pick a side that were local to us, as in various different ways we have ties with each team in Kent (Our county). It had to be a team that stood out and really stood for something.
We selected Forest Green Rovers of EFL League 2. Why might you say? Forest Green stood out for us for their ambition and what they are trying to achieve within the footballing world. FIFA recently said they are currently the Greenest football club in the world. This is quite an achievement in itself. Forest Green Rovers are trying to bring together Football and Environmental consciousness at the highest levels of the game. They are currently the only football club in the world to hold a EMAS accreditation – the gold standard of environmental management. On top of all this they also do not serve any meat products at the stadium and training pitches. They are also the first Vegan football club.
Its a club with quite the ambition and are very unique so what a great club to start to get to know. I will make a page on here dedicated to Forest Green Rovers and will post more about them later on in the week.
Let us know what you think of us adopting a club in the comments below. If it doesn’t work out we have learnt something about a great club with great values and a different league, so win win.
