Episode 1842: Valhalla Is Burning, Messi Life, Only Fools And Harry
We thought it was a big news day yesterday afternoon when Harry Maguire was convicted of a series of charges in a Greek court.
Then Lionel Messi reminded us of the meaning of the phrase “Big News Day”.
We talk about Messi’s bombshell, why it has come to this, whether it can really end this way, and what might happen next.
Man City and PSG are probably the most realistic destinations for Messi *if* he ends up leaving Barcelona, but Inter have been kind of fluttering about in his background for about 10 years. A lot of diplomacy with his family. Wonder if it may pay off after all.

Plus there’s the Juddernaut, the efficient Greek legal system, Maguire’s future career, what club Messi could join and why Pep may not be a positive for City.
Might be time for Cristiano to invite Messi round for that dinner party…pic.twitter.com/HbicSaAvpm
