The Crafty Rogues: Hello to Conor, Conor, and Coner. Happy 60th Quinno! (ep. 130)

We're celebrating a monumental occasion this week on The Crafty Rogues... Quinno turns 60! Happy Birthday Mate!

On a rare Tuesday taping the boys lament the impossible amount of snow we've had dumped upon us in the past week. The boys then talk about the Champions League matches that were played before taping and give a quick prediction to those that will be played on Wednesday. Then the boys dive back to the weekend action in the Premier League including Ranieri being a bad appointment at Fulham, Burnley being back to being Burnley, and City demolishing Chelsea. John doesn't think United will last in fourth then gives his predictions for the fifth round of the FA Cup.

The boys then answer your emails to the best of their abilities before John has something to say in his Just Be Cos segment. Producer Jonathan pops in his Big Football Update. A quick note on FIFA not being able to get away from being overtly corrupt and we end on a look at the weekend's action in Six Nations.

Oh, I almost forgot stick around until the end as we got some calls to wish Quinno a very happy 60th birthday!

Past Episodes

In the midst of the third snowstorm of the week John Cosgrove & Stephen Quinn got together for some Premier League talk and plenty of craic. The boys discussed the ugly win for United, how John is becoming more and more of a Poch fan, and how they're both getting sick of the excuses from Klopp. We get our weekly predictions for the upcoming Premier League action before a look ahead at the Fifth Round of the FA Cup and the Champions League. You sent in letters and the guys answered. John gets something off his chest in Just Be Cos. Producer Jonathan pops in for his Big Football Update. To close the show this week the guys go through a bit of a Transfer Deadline Day wrap up and a quick look at Six Nations.

Let the Crafty Rogues keep you warm with their thoughts and predictions on the Premier League as you hide from the polar vortex that's dropping temps lower than Huddersfield's goal differential.

John escaped the cold to head down to Texas so we brought back Minnesota United's TV play-by-play guy Callum Williams. Before jumping into the most recent rounds of Premier League play Quinno and Cal discuss the excitement over the opening of Minnesota United's new ground Allianz Field. The guys touch on, among other things, Manchester United's comeback draw against Burnley, Newcastle's surprising upset win over City being a display of City's poor play, and Chelsea looking like they quit on their third manager. We then get Cal's predictions for this weekends matches and talk about the USMNT's first match, and victory, under manager Greg Berhalter.

In the letters portion of the show Cal & Quinno answer questions about the biggest rivalry in English football, the US playing in an almost empty stadium, and Birmingham's music scene. Producer Jonathan steps in for his Big Football Update then sticks around for a quick state of Minnesota United and MLS discussion. Quinno closes the show quizzing Cal about his beloved Aston Villa.

Cal's Predictions:

Tottenham 2-1 Newcastle

Brighton 2-0 Watford

Burnley 2-1 Southampton

Chelsea 1-1 Huddersfield

Crystal Palace 1-0 Fulham

Everton 1-2 Wolves

Cardiff 2-2 Bournemouth

A leaky basement didn't stop John from coming and recording so what's your excuse for not having already listened to this edition of The Crafty Rogues?! Get on with it already! The boys open the show discussing John's new style of intro that threw Quinno off a bit before having a brief conversation about John's bathroom breaking down. They then jump into a review of the Premier League including the mounting pressure on Puel, Salah irritating John, and whether Ranieri was a bad appointment at Fulham. The EFL cup action gets a brief mention, it was a 10-0 aggregate a brief mention is all it's going to get. We then get John's predictions on the FA Cup Fourth Round action as well as the midweek Premier League action coming up. In the letters portion of the show the boys break down the NFL action at the weekend, yes that did happen, whether Poch could get frustrated enough to leave for United, and John's feelings about Sarri taking verbal swings at his players. John then has his Just Be Cos segment and Producer Jonathan steps in with his big football update segment. We close the show talking about racism in football and have a quick look around the lower leagues in England. All that and much more on this edition of The Crafty Rogues! John's Premier League Predictions: Arsenal 4-1 Cardiff Fulham 1-0 Brighton Huddersfield 0-2 Everton Wolves 2-1 West Ham Manchester United 1-0 Burnley Newcastle 0-1 Manchester City Bournemouth 1-1 Chelsea Southampton 0-0 Crystal Palace Liverpool 2-1 Leicester Tottenham 1-1 Watford John's Premier League Predictions: Arsenal 4-1 Cardiff Fulham 1-0 Brighton Huddersfield 0-2 Everton Wolves 2-1 West Ham Manchester United 1-0 Burnley Newcastle 0-1 Manchester City Bournemouth 1-1 Chelsea Southampton 0-0 Crystal Palace Liverpool 2-1 Leicester Tottenham 1-1 Watford

New branding (SKOR North), new opener (Cosgrove & Quinno don't know what it sounds like), new equipment (one set of headphones doesn't work) it's all going swimmingly for the boys this week. The boys are both back this week despite both being in Phoenix at some point since we last recorded. We jump right into the action talking about the latest round of Premier League play including Manchester United's sixth win on the bounce, John calling Wagner out, and Rafa's troubling Newcastle quote. We then get John's predictions about this weekends games before moving onto discussing the FA & EFL Cups The bold predictions stop but the bold opinions don't in the letters segment where Cosgrove answers your emails. Quinno steps back a bit in the Just Be Cos segment to let John get something off his chest. Producer Jonathan jumps in for his big Football Update segment. We wrap the show today with the return of Your Choice. All that and much more on this week's edition of The Crafty Rogues!

Quinno is off in Phoenix this week so John had to find someone who could fill in that big hole in the show and we think he did a pretty good job in getting Minnesota United's TV Play by Play voice Callum Williams. John and Cal open up the show talking about a lad from Birmingham (England NOT Alabama) makes his way over to Minnesota, as well as deal with a lack of good tea over in the states. The boys then jump into all the action that's taken place over the last week including Leicester falling to Newport, City demolishing Burton, and the FA Cup Fourth Round Draw. We then look ahead and get Cal's predictions on this weekends upcoming matches (scores and everything). John and Cal then answer your email, Producer Jonathan pops in for his Big Football Update, and we close the show with a Shoot Magazine style special with Cal. All that and more on this edition of The Crafty Rogues!

John and Stephen answer your questions. John gets something off his chest in Just Be Cos.

The festive season only continues as the boys meet up bright and early at Brit's to tape a Boxing Day Special edition before the kickoff of the big set of matches. John and Stephen are joined by special guest Carl Craig to review the last round of action, preview the Boxing Day matches as well as the next round of matches. The trio also look back at the season so far and discuss how each squad has done to this point. John gets something off his chest in his Just Be Cos segment. Producer Jonathan steps in for the second edition of the Big Football Update segment. We wrap with some quick awards for the halfway point of the season.

The holiday season is in full swing but we're not to the point yet of games, seemingly, every other day which gave John Cosgrove and Stephen Quinn just enough time to sit down a talk about the last week of football, as well as share a pint or two. Not sure if you've heard but Jose Mourinho was sacked at Manchester United but we discuss that bit of news along with the recent rash of Carabao Cup matches, the big Everton/Man City match, and the even bigger Liverpool/Man United match at the weekend. The guys also answer your emails, John talks presents in his Just Be Cos, we debut Jonathan's new segment, and we wrap with a look at the top Christmas movies as well as a look at the Women's World Cup Draw. That and much more on this edition of The Crafty Rogues!
00:51:00 12/19/2018
Wit so much to discuss the boys couldn't fit it all in the usual 60 minutes of play so we went to Extra Time to fit it all in. John Cosgrove and Stephen Quinn discuss Manchester United being unwatchable, Alisson justifying his price tag, and a fun Premier League this year. The guys also discuss I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here (yep actually happened), MLS Cup's appearance at an Atlanta club, and play a round of wanker or super wanker. All that and more on this bigger, longer, better edition of The Crafty Rogues!
