Episode 1366: Red Hot Rice, Zero Chill Lamps
It’s been a great weekend for Irish Premier League goalscorers and Brian Clough anecdotes, as Declan Rice, Shane Long and Jeff Hendrick ran riot while Martin O’Neill returned to management with Nottingham Forest.

It was not such a good weekend for Rio Ferdinand: when any controversy pits you and Richard Keys against the world, it’s time to start worrying.

We talk to Garry Ringrose about the unique challenge posed by Toulouse’s unusual formation and array of elusive runners, and if being a good defender is as much a God given talent as being a good attacker
