The Late Fitness Test podcast. Episode Three.

Monday, August 19 2019


Episode Three. Shoot the Defence 'Late Fitness Test' podcast. Ben Dinnery, Johnny Wilson and Stel Stylianou return to discuss a host of injury-related topics. This weeks' highlights include:

  • Kieran Tierney and 'that' club-record vertical jump test and why his results may indicate a return-to-play (RTP) sooner than the club suggests in mid-October. 
  • Bayern Munich could still move for Leroy Sane during the European summer transfer window despite the winger being sidelined for at least six months. Johnny explains why a deal may yet be done.
  • Following on from the FIFpro 'At the Limit' report which came out earlier this month. The footballers union flagged Alisson Becker as one of those players most at risk of suffering a fatigue-related injury having played 72 competitive fixtures and travelled over 80k kilometers in the previous 12 months. And, after playing in every Premier League minute in his first season at Liverpool, the goalkeeper picked up quite a severe-looking muscle injury on the opening day. With supporters fearing the worst, we discuss the nature of the injury and why seeing Alisson in a short-leg walking boot, may not necessarily be a bad thing. 
  • And, finally, Jack Wilshere, and his decision, with West Ham's blessing, to bring in an external person to help maximise his opportunities on the pitch.  

Have a listen, we would love to hear your thoughts!

The planned football career that would allow Matt to spend every afternoon in the bookies was cut mercifully short. So he was able to spend his mornings there too.

But rather than spunk his (sweet) FA pension on a day-tripper to Palookaville, Matt played smart. He watched, he listened. Learned his trade and earned a reputation.

But the bookies don’t like a winner...

First they closed his accounts. Then they tried legal action to shut down his tipping services. Now they employ him.

Matt has been providing winning football advice since 1998. And whether it has been via post, premium rate phone line, email, TV or Twitter – he has always made punters money.
