Tottenham fan calls talkSPORT and goes on sensational FIVE-minute rant about Levy, Pochettino, Eriksen and much more

20 Sep

It really can be frustrating being a football fan.

But when your team isn’t winning trophies but is very close to doing so, that frustration turns to agony.

And it seems one Tottenham fan has come to the end of his tether, and called into Drivetime to have his say… and boy, did he have a lot to say.

Matt the Spurs fan unleashed a stunning FIVE-MINUTE rant about the state of the club he loves LIVE on talkSPORT.

It’s not often Adrian Durham can’t get a word in edgeways, but he didn’t have a chance here as Matt barely drew breath as he tore into absent owner Joe Lewis and chairman Daniel Levy, as well as other fans who keep making excuses for Tottenham’s lack of trophies.

Excuses? He’s had enough of excuses, so much so that he promised to ‘run starkers down Tottenham High Road’ if Spurs win a major trophy – ‘not the League Cup, that’s not a trophy’ – with Levy in charge.

I’m not sure anybody wants to see that, Matt.

In fact, I’m absolutely sure nobody wants to see that, Matt.

However, it’s actually hard to disagree with much of what he said, and you can see what you think by watching the full clip above.

And keep watching for Goughie and Ade’s reactions throughout the video – they are priceless!

Piers Morgan reveals Cristiano Ronaldo crying in front of him was one of his most ‘surprising’ experiences

19 Sep

Piers Morgan reveals he experienced one of the most ‘surprising’ and ‘moving’ moments of his career when Cristiano Ronaldo started crying in front of him.

The ITV host sat down with the Juventus star for an eye-opening interview, which aired on Tuesday night.

During the in-depth chat, Ronaldo was shown a video of his father, Jose Dinis Aveiro, talking of the pride he felt for his son.

Ronaldo was just 20 when his father died of liver failure in 2004 at the age of 52 after years battling alcoholism.

And the Portugal superstar burst into tears upon watching the clip, explaining his sadness that his father never saw what he went on to achieve.

Speaking about that tender moment with Ronaldo, Piers told talkSPORT: “It was genuinely one of the most surprising and moving things I’ve ever experienced.

“Ronaldo’s a very controlled guy. I didn’t expect him to react like that, I assumed he’d seen this clip before. It was a Norwegian TV clip of his father talking about him the year before he died.

“Ronaldo has 183million followers on instagram, this guy is a supersonic, stratospheric superstar, and to see him lose his cool and be emotional in such a raw way was very powerful.”

Piers was also keen to debunk some common myths about Ronaldo, such as his supposed arrogance and vanity.

The pair grew close after Ronaldo reached out to Piers to talk about his crime documentaries, ultimately leading to the exclusive interview.

And Piers suggests, in a long list of influential people, the Manchester United and Real Madrid legend ranks among the most remarkable people he has ever met.

“For me, Ronaldo is a personal hero and it’s always difficult interviewing heroes,” he added.

“Sometimes they’re a bit disappointing; they’re not what you hoped they are.

“What I loved about Ronaldo was, I really felt genuinely inspired to be in his company.

“He’s very smart, very funny, very warm, and not really the kind of person that many people think he is.

“He’s not this cocky bragger that we all see on the pitch.

“In real life, he’s very humble, very respectful, and very likeable. He was everything I hoped he’d be and more.”

Arsenal should ditch ‘Unai Wenger’ and appoint Jose Mourinho – ‘He’s exactly what they need’, says talkSPORT host Adrian Durham

17 Sep

Adrian Durham has sensationally claimed Jose Mourinho would be ‘perfect’ for Arsenal and should replace Unai Emery as manager in the summer.

The talkSPORT host believes Emery is ‘running out of time’ at the Emirates after his team’s poor start to the new Premier League campaign.

Although they began the season with back-to-back wins over Newcastle and Burnley, the north London club have struggled to perform and their defence has leaked goals – conceding eight times in their last four games.

Arsenal’s problems were further highlighted during Sunday’s clash against Watford, as they blew an early two-goal lead to draw 2-2 with the Hornets and were ultimately fortunate to escape with a point.

Durham believes Arsenal have not progressed from their ‘dark days’ under Arsene Wenger since Emery was appointed at the beginning of last season.

The Spaniard signed a three-year deal when he joined Arsenal, but it is widely claimed the deal contains a break clause that can be triggered after two seasons, enabling the club to dismiss him one year early.

And Durham believes Arsenal should ditch their boss at the end of the season and bring in Mourinho, saying the Special One can ‘shake up’ the Gunners and fix their team.

“Time is running out for Unai Emery,” said the Drivetime host. “He’s coming up to the end of the two years and there is no difference to the darkest days under Arsene Wenger.

“They conceded more chances to Watford than they did in the 8-2 at Man United.

“So these are just as bad these times for Arsenal and they are nowhere nearer challenging for the title than they were in those latter years under Wenger.

“It’s a fanbase and a club that is living a delusion that their players are really good.

“The midfield and the defending is not good enough and I’m not even sure about the goalkeeper. It looks like they’re not being coached correctly or told the right things.

“Something drastic needs to be done.

Liverpool fan claims Roberto Firmino is Premier League’s best striker in brilliant talkSPORT call – ‘Better than Harry Kane and Sergio Aguero’

5 Sep

Kieran, the Liverpool fan, really likes Roberto Firmino.

So he called talkSPORT to explain exactly why the Brazil international is the best striker in the Premier League, much to the bemusement of Andy Goldstein and Darren Gough.

Is Firmino the best striker in the Premier League?
AFP or licensors

The Drive hosts couldn’t believe what they were hearing as Kieran ranked Firmino above both Sergio Aguero and Harry Kane, arguing the Reds forward would walk into both Manchester City and Tottenham’s starting line-ups.



In defence of Kieran, Firmino is a wonderful player, and there’s far more nuance to his game than cold hard stats would have you think.

Liverpool wingers Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah shared the Golden Boot last season with 22 goals each, and much of that is down to Firmino’s intelligence.

In fact, Kieran goes as far as to say that Firmino is Liverpool’s most valuable forward, with Mane second and Salah third.

But, as a no.9, his goalscoring record surely has to be considered, and last season he bagged fewer goals than Brighton’s Glenn Murray.

Meanwhile, Aguero and Kane are regularly among the top marksmen in the Premier League.

Watch how the argument unfolded below:

Adrian Durham and Darren Gough question whether Arsenal have overpaid for club record signing Nicolas Pepe

2 Sep

The signing of Nicolas Pepe was seen by Arsenal fans as a statement of intent for the future.

The Gunners board decided to part with a club record £72million to bring the exciting talent across the Channel.

Last season at Lille, Pepe scored 22 goals and recorded 11 assists in Ligue 1 to solidify his reputation as one of the most dangerous forwards on the continent.

But against Liverpool and then against Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday, the Ivory Coast international showed he still has much to learn before he can make it in the Premier League.

The 24-year-old showcased glimpses of raw pace and pure talent, but will need to finesse his attributes.

The talkSPORT Drivetime presenters watched the north London derby where Pepe had a quiet game and questioned whether or not the winger’s dependence on his strong foot could prove to be his undoing.

“Everyone is excited about Pepe and I get it,” Gough said. “He’s young, he cost £70million and people suddenly think they’re getting a world beater.

The physicality of the Premier League can often unsettle foreign imports

“What they’ve signed, they’ve probably paid over the odds for a youngster who has got potential to turn into a £70m player.

“But they’ve paid that to get him now over a few years. So they’ve paid over the odds because they’re paying over a few years.

“Realistically, he is probably worth £40m and he could turn himself into £70m plus with the right coaching, the right team and everything else that goes with it.

“He will turn it on at times this year; you could tell with his pace, he loves running with the ball at his feet.

“The thing is, he has got to use his right foot at some point. If you remember one point, he was running down the right and he was going further and further away from goal because he didn’t want to use his right foot.

“Now you can be superstar and use your best foot all the time, Messi does it. But he still does use his right foot now and again. It looks like Pepe does not want to use that right foot whatsoever.

“But when you’re playing alongside Lacazette and Aubameyang, you’ve got to improve surely as a player?”

Although the two claimed to be friends, Pele always insisted Diego Maradona could not head the ball or shoot with his weaker right foot.

However, it did not stop the former Argentina captain going down in history as one of the greatest players of all time.

While Pepe is no Maradona, his insistence on using solely his left foot is a trait Adrian Durham feels could hinder the youngster from achieving his potential.

“I was surprised at how ineffective Pepe was,” Durham added. “To pay that much money for somebody who is so one-footed has to be a risk.

“I don’t think he is going to have that many wonder games, I think he’ll have some special moments, he will do some special things in games.

“But to impact a game to the point where you’re the difference and you make up to 12-15 points a season that can make Arsenal challengers, I think they are expecting a bit too much from him.”

Adrian Durham invents ingenious new nickname for Unai Emery and claims Arsenal fans were given a ‘reality check’ by Liverpool

26 Aug

Adrian Durham referred to Arsenal manager Unai Emery as ‘Unai Wenger’ for lacking courage at Anfield on Saturday.

The Gunners were comfortably beaten 3-1 by Liverpool at Anfield on Saturday, with Lucas Torreira’s late strike proving to be no more than a consolation. Heavy defeats away to far superior teams became a feature towards the end of Arsene Wenger’s 22-year reign.

And Durham took umbrage with the tactics deployed by the Spaniard on Merseyside, with the visitors falling apart somewhat in the second half after Joe Matip had scored.

The Arsenal defence has come under intense scrutiny already this season, with the addition of David Luiz proving to be a hindrance at this moment in time.

And the Drivetime host believes there is only one way for Emery to start approaching games against superior opposition now.

“There’s a couple of things I want to say about who I am now calling ‘Unai Wenger’,” Durham said.

“He plays a diamond when Liverpool have got the most brilliant wing-backs/full-backs in the Premier League, possibly Europe.

David Luiz clearly pulled back Mohamed Salah to concede a penalty

“And he decides that is a good system to go with, it’s extraordinary. There’s no one-to-one coaching going on with David Luiz; I actually could not believe some of the things he was doing in that second half, extraordinary stuff.

“The thing about Unai Wenger as well is that he had no courage in his selection. You’ve got those strikers, you’ve got a very shaky defence, I still don’t think their midfield is right.

“So just try and outscore the opposition – that’s what I said in pre-season – they’re going to try and outscore the opposition. Absolutely amazing.”

Dani Ceballos started the game at Anfield, but was overwhelmed by the swarming pressure of the Liverpool ‘gegenpress’.

‘Arsenal go their tactics all wrong against Liverpool’, claims ex-Chelsea star

The Real Madrid midfielder enjoyed a sparkling debut against Burnley last weekend, with Durham remains convinced the Spain international had much to prove.

But that does not mean he thinks Arsenal will miss out on the Champions League places once again this season.

“Ceballos was brilliant last week, the statue is on hold this week,” he added. “And we all knew it wouldn’t last, you’re going to have a good game every now and then.

“But it’s a reality check for Arsenal fans. I expect them to make the Top Four, but not because they are brilliant.

“It’s probably because Man United have still got a lot of problems and Chelsea have got a rookie manager in terms of Premier League and top flight.

“And Spurs have got their own problems as well so I expect Arsenal, by default, to get in there.

“But there wasn’t a lot to love on Saturday.”

Manchester United news: Jesse Lingard would have been ‘warned about form by now’, says Sam Allardyce, but Adrian Durham says he is underappreciated

21 Aug

Sam Allardyce has told talkSPORT he would have threatened to boot Jesse Lingard out of the Manchester United team by now over his poor form.

However, Drivetime host Adrian Durham believes the midfielder ‘doesn’t get the credit he deserves’ from pundits and fans.

Lingard has come under fresh scrutiny for a damning stat surfaced on social media highlighting his lack of goals and assists.

View this post on Instagram

Oh dear 👀

A post shared by talkSPORT (@talksport) on

The England international has suffered a largely barren 12 months, managing just four goals and two assists last season. That flurry came back in December and he hasn’t found the net since.

Many United fans have called for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to drop Lingard from his first-team, having started both of their opening Premier League games against Chelsea and Wolves.

But Allardyce says he would have had a serious conversation with the midfielder about his form a long time ago.

“From a personal point of view and a manager’s point of view, the warning signs would have been bought up by now,” Big Sam told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast.

“The player would have been called in and I would have said to him, ‘you haven’t got a lot of time to put this right before your place is taken by somebody else’.

Jesse Lingard has not been firing for Manchester United

“As a manager you have to be ruthless, you have to make these decisions and you have to try to explain to a player in the best way you can.

“At Manchester United Lingard has got to be an eight-to-ten goal a season man in his position, and maybe six or eight assists as well I would think.”

Many supporters – as you can hear in the clip above – believe Lingard’s time in the first-team is up, as they are not happy over his lack of contribution in the final third for a player on £100,000-a-week.

A talkSPORT caller even branded him a ‘waste of space’ in attack and blasted his ‘ridiculously, ridiculously poor’ record.

He also highlighted the fact Liverpool right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold got 12 assists in the Premier League last season – the same number Lingard has managed in his entire career in a United shirt.

But Durham believes Lingard is being harshly criticised and has been ‘killed by stats’, saying his efforts on the pitch are unappreciated.

“I think he’s been a little hard done by some of the post-match criticism,” said the Drivetime host.

“He’s also been killed by stats. We’ve all seen this stat that basically says he does nothing in every single game, which is obviously a load of rubbish.

“Is he a team player who doesn’t get the credit he deserves because he doesn’t do the spectacular?

“He needs to deliver more. His career tally at Manchester United in all competitions is 29 goals in 169 games. In just the Premier League he has 17 goals in 113 games, and he’s never got double figures in a Premier League season.

“But the thing with Jesse Lingard is he has delivered on a couple of big occasions, there are positives with him and the fact he was scoring goals when Solskjaer first got the job as caretaker tell you something is in there, it can’t all be a negative.

“There are a lot of people saying just bin him off, get rid, he’s like Tom Cleverley, just because he’s come through the academy – but isn’t there a bit more to him?

“You don’t last at Manchester United this long if you really aren’t a good player, surely.”

‘Arsenal a million miles from Liverpool and Man City’– Ray Parlour responds to Adrian Durham’s claim Gunners can challenge for Premier League

21 Aug

Ray Parlour has responded to fellow talkSPORT host Adrian Durham’s claim that Arsenal can challenge for the Premier League title this season.

The mood is high at the Emirates Stadium after the club’s perfect start to the campaign, with two wins from two, and their successful transfer window.

Unai Emery strengthened his attack, midfield and defence this summer and club director Josh Kroenke insists the club expect to be challenging for top honours again after spending over £100million on new players.

Those views were echoed by Drivetime host Adrian Durham, who has claimed Arsenal are the ‘only’ other club that can compete with Manchester City and Liverpool this term.

But Gunners legend Parlour says his former club are ‘a million miles away’ from the title favourites and reveals he’d be ‘delighted’ if they manage only a top four finish.

Speaking on Tuesday’s Drive show, Durham said: “The only side other than Man City and Liverpool that can the Premier League title, for me, is Arsenal.

“They had Aubameyang and Lacazette and they’ve added Pepe – they’ve got goals galore in their team – and they have also strengthened their defence and midfield.

“Meanwhile, Manchester City are weaker with Vincent Kompany gone and Liverpool did not add significantly to their squad. Are we expecting their front three to last all season, bearing in mind their excursions over the summer?”

Parlour disagreed on Wednesday’s Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast: “I heard a few shows yesterday saying we can challenge for the league, but they’re a million miles away from Man City and Liverpool at the moment, if I‘m honest.

“How many Arsenal players would get into the Liverpool team?

“The most important think is getting back into the Champions League. Maybe they could push a bit higher, but if they get fourth place this season I’d be delighted.

“A lot of fans gave their season tickets back this summer. There were no signings and if you want to get in that top four you need to get players in to give them a chance of competing

“At one stage it looked like Arsenal weren’t going to get anybody, it was a bit worrying.

“In the end it was a decent transfer window for Arsenal and a lot of fans are excited about going into the new season.

Arsenal news: Adrian Durham tips Gunners to challenge Liverpool and Manchester City for Premier League title – but rubbishes Tottenham Hotspur’s chances

20 Aug

Adrian Durham believes Arsenal are the only side capable of challenging Liverpool and Manchester City for the title next season.

Pep Guardiola’s men secured their second successive Premier League crown, but had to do so after a nail-biting finale with the Reds which went down to the last game of the season.

In truth, it was a two-horse race for the majority of the season, with 25 points separating second and third place.

But the Gunners have strengthened this summer, with Director of Football Raul Sanllehi earning praise from fans this summer for landing Nicolas Pepe, Dani Ceballos, Kieran Tiernay and David Luiz this summer and is leading the negotiations for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s new contract.

And although the Drivetime presenter does not believe the north Londoners can usurp either Liverpool or City yet, he does feel as though it will be close.

“The title will be won by either Man City or Liverpool this season,” Durham said.

“That’s not rocket science or putting your neck on the block by any means. But the only other side that could win it for me is Arsenal – here’s why.

Arsenal have won both of their opening Premier League games

“They had Aubameyang and Lacazette, they’ve added Pepe. They’ve got goals galore in their team.

“They have strengthened their defence and their midfield; David Luiz has come in and Ceballos has come in as well.

“So they’ve strengthened defence and midfield, now Manchester City are weaker.

“They’ve lost two leaders in [Fabian] Delph and [Vincent] Kompany, they’ve weakened their defence by losing Kompany and you wonder if Kevin De Bruyne is going to stay fit all season – because he does not normally.

“Liverpool did not add significantly to their squad, certainly didn’t add to their first XI. Are we expecting their front three to last all season, bearing in mind their exertions in the summer?

“So I think City and Liverpool will be weaker, it depends by how much, but they will be weaker this season and Arsenal have strengthened.

Given they reached the Champions League final last season and Harry Kane has already started the season in goalscoring form, many would expect north London rivals Tottenham Hotspur to be fighting for the title.

But Durham is having absolutely none of it.

He added: “Tottenham are going to be nowhere near the title, as usual…miles off!”

Adrian Durham tells Arsenal fans to calm down about Dani Ceballos amid raucous appraisal for Burnley performance

Adrian Durham is already sick and tired of Arsenal fans banging on about new signing Dani Ceballos.

The Real Madrid loanee lit up the Emirates on Saturday afternoon during his full Premier League debut against Burnley.

Ceballos, the Spain Under-21 midfielder, received rave reviews for his role in the 2-1 victory, earning comparisons to former Arsenal midfielders Cesc Fabregas and Aaron Ramsey.

But Durham was quick to remind supporters that the Clarets don’t exactly represent the ultimate Premier League test.

“He’s apparently the Premier League’s best ever player,” Durham said on Drivetime.

“They’re trying to work out where they’re going to put the statue for Ceballos.

“There was a headline in The Times – ‘Ceballos emerges as the complete midfielder in Emery’s vision for the future’ – they’ve played Newcastle and Burnley!

“Burnley’s goal was because Ceballos was useless. Have a look at it. Look at what [Dwight] McNeil does to him, he makes him look like an amateur.

‘So let’s just calm our skins down. How many times have you heard Arsenal fans go on about a player? ‘Ooh, we’ve signed Kim Kallstrom, he’s going to be the new Patrick Vieira.

“It does your head in. Why don’t you wait a few games? If he carries on in this way, fine. But it’s Newcastle and Burnley.”
