Premier League Week Two is over and Leicester have seen first place snatched by Manchester City despite another impressive win. Manchester United had another blah win. Sunderland were crap, again. Ross Barkley, I mean Everton, had a great game.
All this and the other standout moments of the weekend, including Jose Mourinho’s latest scapegoat.
We preview Liverpool and Arsenal’s upcoming match as well as Everton – Man City and Sunderland – Swansea. There’s a discussion on the new Monday (and Friday) Night Football trend, and the return of Love it or Hate it. It’s a glorious time.

Born in Omaha, Nebraska, Laura was trained from birth to be a Nebraska Cornhusker Football fan. Unlike most Huskers, her dad played soccer and introduced her to that sport as well, which understandably stole her heart. Laura’s love for the Spice Girls and Harry Potter carried her love for soccer across the Atlantic to a team not unlike her Huskers, Manchester United. They were once great and believe they can be again, but it hasn’t really happened yet. Laura is also a fan of the MLS team Sporting Kansas City.

Treble Radio host, Arslan Siddiqui, is a Canadian who does not speak many languages, but he has definitely specialized in the language of the beautiful game. When his grasp of the language isn’t strong enough, he (tries) to substitute it with comedy. He is a Liverpool fan who started the ‘Anfield Alive’ column on Last Word On Sports, where he provides commentary and opinion on everything Liverpool and Premier League related. A university student and a young adult, he promises to provide entertainment and (a little bit of) knowledge!
