Episode 10, Season 2019/20

Episode 10 of the 2019/20 season is very much an episode of two halves..... The first half is dominated by the blues; Judgy and Craig, who express their frustration and annoyance at the current situation at Everton. The blues review the disappointing 1-0 defeat at Burnley before stewing over Marco Silva’s position and the part Brands has played in the current crisis. The second half of the show is all about the reds; Terry and Gary review the thrilling 4-3 win in the Champions League, against RB Salzburg and the dramatic 2-1 win against Leicester. Whilst both results were positive, they raised some questions about the reds more unsettled defensive line and some positives about unexpected personnel changes.

The last episode of 2019 for the Across The Park podcast is a highly positive one with both sides recording back to back victories over the Christmas period. The Blues are buzzing after Ancelotti’s first two games in charge. A 1-0 win over Burnley at home and a 2-1 victory away at Newcastle has Judgy and Craig heaping praise on several players including Djibril Sidibe, Bernard and Dominic Calvert-Lewin, whilst the managers tactical flexibility and experience are already impressing the Blues. The Reds are equally as enthusiastic after their team dismantled nearest challengers Leicester, 4-0 on Boxing Day and battled through a tough game against Wolves at home, with a 1-0 win. Alexander Arnold’s contribution against Leicester has the Reds comparing his rise and attacking output with the great Cafu! Both sides of the park review the year of 2019, by reflecting on their high and low moments, before the lads select their teams of the decade (2010-2019). There are upcoming fixtures for both sides at the beginning of the new year, with Everton travelling to Man City on New Year’s Day at 5.30pm and Liverpool entertaining stubborn but high flying newcomers Sheffield United on 2nd January at 8pm.

Episode 15 - Season 2019/20

Episode 15 starts with the reds looking back and analysing an important week for Liverpool, with victories at home to Genk in the Champions League possibly making qualification for the last 16 easier, going into a crowded December, as well as a massive win at home to Manchester City in the Premier League, to open up an 8 point lead at the top of the table. Everton's first away victory since March is then reviewed, as Millsy talks about a game of two halves in which Everton's first half dominance but lack of ability to put the game to bed, almost cost all 3 points, with a resurgent 2nd half Southampton performance. The lads close out the episode tackling some social media feedback, first on Marcel Brands and the job he's doing as Director of football, before the reds give their view on a listener pointing out how Philippe Coutinho's exit, has ultimately turned into a positive for this Liverpool team

Episode 13 - Season 2019/20

Episode 13 sees the blues, Judgy and Millsy attempt to pick apart Everton's collapse at Brighton on Saturday. Both are in agreement that the recent run is unacceptable yet there is debate as to where the blame lies! The reds on the other hand are once again in buoyant mood after coming back from one goal down to beat Spurs at Anfield with Jordan Henderson, much criticised in the past on the Podcast, coming up with a vital goal. The reds discuss the midfield again, as well as stewing over the defence, which again looked suspect against Spurs. Both sides have tricky Carabao Cup ties in the week with Everton entertaining Watford on Tuesday and Liverpool hosting Arsenal on Wednesday. These respective ties are previewed before a look ahead to next weekends league fixtures, with Liverpool travelling to Aston Villa on Saturday and Everton hosting Spurs on the Sunday at 4.30pm.

Episode 27 - Season 2019/20

Episode 27 sees the lads return to the usual format of one show for the week. The blues kick the show off by reviewing Everton’s terrific come back away at Watford, with the blues two nil down at one point and down to 10 men whilst the game was tied at 2-2. The display leaves Judgy and Craig wondering whether the current displays and resurgence represents the potential of this team or whether we’re seeing a “new manager bounce”. Terry and Gary look back at a “game of two halves” against Southampton as they eventually ran out 4-0 convincing winners after an emphatic second half display. The lads tackle questions about Grealish as a potential summer signing for either side and whether Henderson has the potential to be PFA player of the year before the upcoming weeks games. Liverpool’s young players take the pitch against Shrewsbury tomorrow with the first team away on a winter break. Gary and Terry are looking forward to the game and seeing what the “kids” can produce but both are relaxed about the potential outcome. The blues meanwhile look forward to another Premier league game on Saturday at 12.30 against Crystal Palace with both Judgy and Craig confident that Everton’s good run can continue.

ATP Extra Episode 18 - Lee Carsley

In this episode of Across The Park Extra, the 3 blues; Millsy, Judgy & Craig, sit down with Everton legend and fan favourite ‘Super’ Lee Carsley. The lad’s take Lee through the timeline of his Everton career, asking questions on both his own time at the club (2002-2008), as well as the news and rumours which surrounded the club at the time. We start at the beginning, with the pressure of signing on an initial loan, on the same day as David Ginola, into a struggling side, where he quickly seen Walter Smith and Paul Gascoigne, replaced by David Moyes, coinciding with the emergence of Wayne Rooney. We ask Lee how he really felt about his time playing right midfield during the 2002-2003 season, before Lee breaks down the 2003-2004 campaign that ended with a scathing article from the local press questioning the players spirit. This season of course, preceded the famous 2004 summer pre season in USA which was a catalyst for the team to kick on to a 4th place finish in 2005 . We ask all things from mercurial talent Wayne Rooney, Sylvester Stallone, Andy Van Der Meyde, his neighbour Tommy Graveson and the loss of Duncan Ferguson. Lee opens upon his ‘best’ season in an Everton shirt; 2007 – 2008, when he describes European nights against Nuremberg and Fiorentina as nights that will never leave him, before Lee reveals the reason why he eventually quit the blues despite still having the chance to play on. Lee’s passion, honesty and love for Everton FC shines through in this must listen episode of Across The Park extra!
