Episode 1481: Chelsea Win At Subbuteo, Arsenal’s Curtains, Sarri-Ball Baffles Souness, Ken Sets Off For Madrid To Meet His Legion Of Fans
It was a very, very strange occasion, but Chelsea were far better when they needed to be and hammered Arsenal 4-1 in last night’s Europa League final in Baku. The winning manager, and their best player, probably won’t be at the club next year, but Jonathan Wilson and John Brewin join us to talk about how dysfunctional Chelsea keep winning trophies and if Arsenal are now worse than they’ve been in 20 years.
We say farewell to Ken as he jets off to Madrid immediately after the show, but he carries glad tidings – the big Second Captains World Service Members meet-up is on, courtesy of Pat the Emailer.
Plus there’s trophy presentation ceremony tricks with Rob Green and David Luiz, Arsenal’s defensive curtain, subbuteo stadiums, and Sarri-ball explained for the benefit of grouchy former Scotland midfielders.
“In my opinion, I deserve to stay at Chelsea but my opinion is not enough.”
