Episode 1547: Game Of Pedantry, Spurs Stink It Up, Being Frank, “Brexit” Blades, WOW Felix
It’s Monday, so it’s time to talk about VAR. Ken defends himself against the “gammon” accusations and explains why his critics are wrong. In between there is some time to discuss the details of how Man City took Spurs apart.
We also talk about Frank Lampard’s downbeat assessment of Chelsea’s draw at home to Leicester, and generally incorporate a range of up to date movie references.
David Sneyd was at Bramall Lane to see the “Brexit” Blades – featuring half an Irish international team – beat Crystal Palace.
Enjoyed my visit to Bramall Lane. Great atmosphere, lovely pies and a proper buzz in the stadium. https://t.co/M3pjXxe4Q4

And Dermot Corrigan talks to us about the sensational Liga debut of Joao Felix, and the somewhat less sensational start to the season by Barcelona.
