Episode 833: Mind Games, Masterclass, Merseyside Sun Ban
Eoin welcomes the return of title run-in mindgames. Mauricio Pochettino has claimed that Tottenham, unlike some of their rivals, are “not artificial”. Antonio Conte has responded in an unexpected way, by claiming that Tottenham are the best team in the league.Judging by his own side’s performance at Old Trafford, Conte might be right. Was United’s victory a Chelsea collapse, or a Mourinho masterclass? Did it show that the United players are finally understanding the principles of the manager’s football?
We also talk about Everton’s decision to ban The Sun after Kelvin MacKenzie’s attack on Ross Barkley. Is banning newspapers ever justified? When you look at the details of this case, how much sympathy does The Sun deserve?
Jonathan Wilson joins us to talk through the details of United’s win.
