As the UK goes to the polls we talk about how the 2019 election has played out in football. It’s an MNF clean sweep for Labour – but where are all the Tory footballer endorsements?

We also talk about a new FAI rescue proposal that suggests breaking the association up into constituent parts.

Gabriele Marcotti joins us to explain why Napoli have sacked Carlo Ancelotti. What went wrong between Carlo and showbiz club president Aurelio de Laurentiis? Does Carlo, rich, successful and 60 years old, still want to be a manager? And is he the sort of coach Arsenal or Everton should be thinking of hiring?
