Join celebrated football pundit, author, radio show host and DJ Andy Brassell every Monday on the Soccerlens Show.
In Episode 9, Andy Brassell evaluates the influence of derbies on title winning ambitions of Premier League teams and finds out that usually the top teams in London and the north have easily negotiated their local derbies. Specifically Andy looks at Chelsea’s and Arsenal’s recent performances at West Ham.
There’s also a discussion on the Lisbon derby as Benfica beat Porto on the weekend and how good Benfica are looking this season thanks to their strong but under-rated midfield. Barcelona’s magnificent six titles, capping off the 2009 year by crowning themselves as World Champions, is also the subject of discussion and Andy picks a surprising choice as Barcelona’s player of the year.
