Episode 1460: The Silence Of The Fans, Lucky Liverpool, Pep Spooked, Top 4 Wacky Races, FAI Family
Everything is settled except the destination of the title. For Manchester City to drop points once already to Leicester City this season might have been bad luck. But twice would look like carelessness.
Meanwhile Liverpool are already counting the cost of their progressive stance on concussion with the news that Mohamed Salah has been ruled out of Tuesday night’s semi-final against Barcelona after the head injury he suffered at Newcastle.
It has been another tough weekend of headlines for the FAI, who are now openly soliciting ideas from the football family as to how they might sort out this mess.
The finance director of the FAI was told that a €60,000 payment to a woman who was dating John Delaney was an “agent’s fee” relating to a friendly match between Ireland and England. https://t.co/Ebl46HgUHb pic.twitter.com/y9e7ZG8lRR
