It's a time of reflection on The Offside Rule (We Get It!) this week, as Lynsey Hooper, Hayley McQueen and Kait Borsay look back on a jam-packed season on the end-of-season episode of the award-winning podcast, brought to you by Continental Tyres. You might remember our early season predictions, which we revisited in Christmas - so how did we do as futuregazers? We also gave you our best debutant XI - but how did they fair throughout the season? Did they reach new heights or fade away? There's been much entertainment throughout the season, but we give you our standout matches. Finally, we dig out some hidden stories you might not have seen throughout the season...

Football reporter Gigi Salmon joins Kait Borsay and Lynsey Hooper to front episode 39 of The Offside Rule (We Get It!), brought to you by Continental Tyres. The final automatic promotion places were confirmed across the Football League at the weekend, so we give you our ones to watch for next season; who's likely to make an impact in their new league? It wasn't easy sailing across Europe, however; PSV Eindhoven won Eredivisie on a dramatic final day, and Barcelona have the advantage in a tight battle for the La Liga title. We take you through some of the most dramatic season wind downs across the continent. Leicester City finally had their title-winning party - but was it all that was expected? We give you some of our highlights from the celebrations - including speedos and pizza costumes - and tell you what we'd have done differently if we were Leicester's party planner...

The Offside Rule 2015/16 Episode 38  

Kait Borsay and Lynsey Hooper are having their very own Vardy party on this week's The Offside Rule (We Get It!), brought to you by Continental Tyres. Leicester City have finally wrapped up the Premier League and we've seldom seen the country unite over one team like it. The #VardyParty became a reality and although we may not have got an invite to the real thing, we dish out some invitations of our own. As the season charges towards the final day, a number of teams have already secured promotion - but so often the thing that lets newly promoted sides down is a lack of depth in the squad. We play deity and give them the gift of a player past. There's still promotion places to play for, and relegation places to avoid, however, so we thought it'd be fun to play snakes and ladders; who will climb up the leagues and who'll slide down a league via a slippery snake? Sue Smith is also back to give us a women's football update.

The Offside Rule 2015/16 Episode 37  

It's the usual suspects on this week's The Offside Rule (We Get It!), as Lynsey Hooper, Kait Borsay and Hayley McQueen front the award-winning podcast, brought to you by Continental Tyres. The winners of the PFA Awards have been announced, with Riyad Mahrez, Dele Alli, Izzy Christiansen and Beth Mead triumphing. This set of winners could be considered rising stars in England, so we delve into the history books to find the biggest successes and flops following a PFA Young Player of the Year Award win. It's super tight at the top of the Championship, with 3 sides sitting on 83 points having played 44 games each. It could go any way unlike the Premier League, so we look at some of the tightest title races around Europe. We've all cringed at Randy Lerner's Aston Villa-inspired poetry, but is it the weirdest thing to come out of a chairman's mouth? From threatening pitch invaders with a crocodile-infested moat and jailing referees, we've managed to find some even sillier comments! As if that's not enough, it's welcome back to Doncaster Belles' Sue Smith and her women's football update.

We look at the shortlists and give you our winner for each category. Newcastle United finally won their first game under new manager Rafa Benitez, a welcome result on his 56th birthday. We look at some other players and managers that got an extra birthday treat in the form of a winning result for their team. Some have suggested that Claudio Ranieri should be knighted if his Leicester City side win the league, and it's hard to argue the case against it. We put on our crowns, grab our sceptres and dish out some knighthoods of our own!

The Offside Rule 2015/16 Episode 35  

Sport Magazine editor and author of Kicking Off: How Women in Football Are Changing the Game Sarah Shepard is our guest presenter on this week's The Offside Rule (We Get It!), brought to you by Continental Tyres. Leicester City are 5 games away from doing the unthinkable and winning the Premier League; the side currently sit 7 points clear at the top of the tables. Having narrowly avoided relegation last season it's a real-life fairytale, so we reminisce and look at some of our other favourite sides that unexpectedly found themselves in dreamland? Their manager Claudio Ranieri got a little misty-eyed this weekend as his side inched closer to the league title; it's not often we see a manager reach for his hanky, so we give you some of our best examples. Finally, Newcastle United manager Rafa Benitez has said the players he's inherited have a serious mental problem when it comes to away matches. We play psychiatrist and come up with the solutions to Newcastle's away game curse. From voodoo to squirting the players, we've got all of the answers!

The Offside Rule 2015/16 Episode 34  

Hayley McQueen rejoins Kait Borsay and Lynsey Hooper to present episode 34 of The Offside Rule (We Get It!), brought to you by Continental Tyres. Aston Villa have parted ways with Remi Garde, with many conceding he wasn't a good fit for the club. But have there been any managers who've defied expectations and brought success to their club? We give We all know how money-oriented football is, which is why it's so refreshing for many to see Leicester City at the top of the Premier League. But is there anything money can't buy? Christian Fuchs has been up to his old prankster tricks again with his Leicester City teammates; is he amongst the best pranksters in football? We look at some legendary mischief makers in football...

The Offside Rule 2015/16 Episode 33  

It's double trouble on The Offside Rule (We Get It!) as Kate Partridge joins Lynsey Hooper to present the award-winning podcast, brought to you by Continental Tyres. All eyes were on England this week, so naturally they've inspired some of our topics. Breakthrough stars like Dele Alli took centre stage in Saturday's match, but they've dominated the news so we turn our attention to rising stars elsewhere. England beat bitter rivals Germany, arguably memorable for a friendly! We look at some of the biggest matches between rivals around the world. Jaws collectively dropped as Harry Redknapp got back into the managerial game...with Jordan. The rumour mill suggests he went for the money - but who else has taken on an unexpected international job, and is it really all about the money? Which manager wouldn't (or couldn't!) even address his players by name?!

The Offside Rule 2015/16 Episode 32

The pocket rockets ruled in the Premier League this week as Jermain Defoe, Riyad Mahrez and Leon Britton netted; they may be small in stature but shouldn't be underestimated! We look at some other players who's height doesn't reflect their footballing ability... Roy Hodgson's England's selection has been criticised this week, with many arguing he's overlooked West Ham's English contingent - but is there anyone else he's left out of the squad? We're getting excited about the start of the new FAWSL season, and with lots of new talent set to impress in the league, we look at the close season's best signings.

The Offside Rule 2015/16 Episode 28  

It's double trouble this week on The Offside Rule (We Get It!), as Kait Borsay and Lynsey Hooper present episode 28 of the award-winning podcast, brought to you by Continental Tyres. As Arsenal faced Barcelona this week, many have said the Catalan's current squad is arguably their strongest ever, with an unstoppable front three of Messi, Neymar and Suarez. But is there anyone from past squads that would make it into this current one? We bring back some of Barcelona's greats - and there were plenty to choose from! England manager Mark Sampson has announced the squad will be going to the SheBelieves Cup, where Farah Williams and Eni Aluko could reach landmark caps of 150 and 100 respectively. But who in men and women's football have a surprising number of caps? Are there any surprise international stalwarts? Who started their international career at the ripe age of 33? Poor Edin Dzeko hasn't had a great time of it since leaving the Premier League, with his miss this weekend dubbed "miss of the century" - but was it really? We bring you the misses to rival this one, including one that might have cost a Premier League side their first title in years...

In light of Valentines Day (wasn't that a great day of football?), we look at some of the best love-ins in football - and some let downs too! This weekend was one of the biggest in the title chase and fight for the top four, so we revisit our crystal balls and give our current top four predictions. Serial rent-a-gob Vincent Tan has out-done himself, and tried to encourage his Cardiff City side to score more goals...by telling them to act like ugly men with beautiful wives! Has anyone topped that crazy advice? We look at some of the more out-there ways footballing personalities have tried to boost their squad or colleagues...

Leicester City are finally the bookie's favourites to win the Premier League, after a convincing win over all-star Manchester City. We pay homage to the surprise Premier League leaders by giving you some of our best Leicester City facts; where would they be without Jamie Vardy's goal?

The Offside Rule 2015/16 Episode 25  

Ali Bender guest stars alongside Kait Borsay and Lynsey Hooper for the latest episode of The Offside Rule (We Get It!), As the transfer window drew to a close on Monday, we give it one last review and look at phantom transfers - the ones that were tipped to happen but didn't make it over the line. Did any side have a lucky escape rather than losing out? The FA Cup 5th round draw was made on Sunday, but we're not very happy with it and decide to do a bit of tinkering. We give some sides a second chance after they've suffered bad luck or just to give them a little morale boost - including a local Middlesbrough side that suffered a heavy defeat... It's hard to imagine football without social media, so it's not totally surprising to hear that Skype have teamed up with Liverpool, and you can now download an emoji of everyone's favourite manager, Jurgen Klopp! We look at some of the craziest football moments on social media, from an unfortunate fan's name spelled backwards, to a player missing out on playing for one of the biggest clubs in the world.
