Premier League footballers are at it again, shaming the UK prime minister into a humiliating U-turn over free school meals for the poorest families in society (45% of children in black and minority ethnic groups in the UK are now in poverty). We discuss Marcus Rashford’s incredible feat and if it’s the greatest single issue clean win for a sports person, ever?


We talk to Jonathan Liew of the Guardian about Rashford but we also invited him on to discuss an article he wrote titled, “Reaction to the powerbroker behind Fury v Joshua is a mirror to boxing itself”, about Daniel Kinahan’s involvement in the fight. The column has touched a nerve with a lot of people in this country, in particular for what Liew describes as the “shrill outrage” around Kinahan’s involvement.

Plus there’s “Previously On The Premier League”, four future Robbie Keanes, and KHK Sports’ weak attempts at research on Daniel Kinahan.
