Men in Blazers: Chelsea Swaps Strikers, Spurs Find Their Form

Clint Dempsey of Tottenham Hotspur In this week’s Men in Blazers podcast, Michael Davies and Roger Bennett overcome the lingering effects of their holiday hangovers to reconcile with a much-changed English Premier League. In their absence, Chelsea have swapped strikers, Roberto Mancini and Mario Balotelli have fallen out of love, Spurs have found their form, and Manchester United remain atop the table. Maybe some things aren’t that different after all.

Then, after taking stock of all these narratives, the Blazers welcome some ravens from the cold to answer your burning telegrams. Among them is a plea to rid the Premiership of the constant bickering of players over referee decisions. Only one man is up for the challenge.
