What happens when a Liverpool supporter marries a Chelsea supporter? A LOT of football debate from Rebecca and Alex. New podcast every week ⚽️ #DICTL
S4E02: Crosstas Tsimikas
The DICTL Derby is rapidly approaching and Rebecca & Alex are back to look at Liverpool and Chelsea's great starts to the season. Liverpool have started the season where they left off, except this time they have most of their squad actually available. We chat about Virgil van Dijk continuing where he left off, the club tying down their core players to new contracts, who can best fulfil the 'Gini Wijnaldum' role, and rant about the reactions from Sean Dyche and English pundits following the win over Burnley. Chelsea have also hit the ground running, with Jorginho now the best player in Europe (apparently) and Romelu Lukaku scoring within 15 minutes of his re-debut. Are Chelsea truly title contenders this season and how will Chelsea vs Liverpool play out this weekend? Will both teams go for the win or settle for a draw in the title race? And who will win the anticipated battle of Lukaku vs Van Dijk? We also take a closer look at the Champions League group stages draw, Arsenal under Arteta looking like an absolute mess, Tottenham impressing under Nuno, Harry Kane sticking around, Manchester City's midfield weaknesses, West Ham and Brighton's strong starts, Man Utd's title challenge already coming to a screeching halt, and Rafa Benitez at Everton so far. Plus, Andy Robertson's vibranium ankles, Thomas Tuchel the walking spreadsheet, the carbonara challenge, the 5th Beatle, super premium repair shops, slicing through hot camembert, crumpling like a ghost, speaking in Star Wars, squeaky chairs, buying Harry Kane on Wish, and Rafa's Xmas Tree. **Please take the time to rate and review us on iTunes or wherever you get your podcasts, as it makes it easier for other potential listeners to find us.

S4E01: Horny For Divorce
We're back! After some time off, Rebecca & Alex have returned to catch up on a great summer of football, some wild transfer news, and preview the imminent Premier League season. We kick off by revisiting the Euros, including how it was a far better tournament than it had any right to be, Italy's brilliance, Denmark's emotional run, how it very nearly came home, and (inevitably) a lot of chat about England, politics and racism. Then there's the shocking moment we never expected to see; Lionel Messi leaving Barcelona. We chat about how Barca lost their greatest ever player, why calls that he should play for free are nonsense, why joining Paris St Germain isn't just because of wages, and just how good that PSG side is going to be this season. We also revisit a somewhat forgettable Community Shield showcase where Leicester City kicked off their season in style with a win over Manchester City. What does it tell us about the upcoming season and do Pep Guardiola's side actually have an Achilles heel? As for the Premier League, both Liverpool and Chelsea look in great shape going into the new season. Liverpool have all their centre backs available again and Chelsea look like they have Romelu Lukaku returning to the club any day now. Is the Inter striker the missing piece for Chelsea to win the league? How much are people underestimating a revitalised Liverpool squad which won the Premier League only 14 months ago? How do a strengthened Man Utd side factor into this? And will Harry Kane sign for Man City and give them (another) extra edge in the title tilt? We also make our top six and relegation predictions (as well as revisiting last season's picks) and we reveal the winner of last season's Prediction Purgatory. Plus, the Euros tiny car, Pep's extra inch, Jack Grealish's calves, are Burnley actually relegation candidates, keeping your knees on, penalties & pie charts, bulbs & bedding in, penis rockets, Donkey's Hell, living in suburbia, tiny cats, why every day is pool weather, and Lord Harreth of Poppington. **Please take the time to rate and review us on iTunes or wherever you get your podcasts, as it makes it easier for other potential listeners to find us.
