Episode 1339: Lionheart Luiz, Sterling Response, Negative Steve G, Pep Under Pressure, Copa Loco, Matt Doherty Goal Machine
Saturday was a bad night for all the losers and haters out there as David Luiz showed just what kind of footballer and what kind of man he is against Manchester City.
We also talk about the controversy ignited by the apparent racist abuse of Raheem Sterling by some Chelsea fans and his Instagram response linking such incidents with racist media coverage.
Meanwhile in Scotland, Steven Gerrard is not happy with what he is seeing and he doesn’t care who knows it.
Gerrard’s interviews are very similar to Barry Ferguson’s when he was Clyde manager. Both top class players who find it difficult to work with players of a much lower standard than they played with.pic.twitter.com/ffeq4nfvl1

Plus there’s Mailbag with Ken Early, Hazard diplomacy, Copa Loco, and Matt Doherty goal machine.
