Graeme Souness and John Giles join Eamon to discuss the real contenders for this year's title. Giles thinks that Guardiola's no fool, but he will have to adapt to the English game. "It's more of the same from Arsenal, they're nearly men," says Souness.
On this episode of The Stand, Eamon is joined by Liam Brady and Didi Hamann to discuss the Champions League and Europa League draws. Didi thinks Arsenal will beat Bayern Munich, while Liam says "it's a very tough draw for us". Eamon makes an early call for Player of the Year, questions whether Pep Guardiola can survive in the Premier League and he gets the inside track on Didi's Twitter tussle with Jamie Carragher.
Liam was one of the greatest midfield players in the history of the modern game. An Arsenal legend, he spent seven seasons in Serie A winning two Championships with Juventus. For the past 20 years he has been an analyst for RTE’s soccer coverage.
