Episode 1870: Never Mind The Quality, Feel The Guuuhls
Manchester United losing 1-6 to Spurs is the sort of result you could just about imagine happening in real life, if things ever went as badly off the rails for United as early in the game as they did yesterday. But Liverpool losing 7-2 to Villa in the very next game… does… not… compute…
For the history:
Aston Villa 7-2 Liverpool

Is this just what football is now? How did it get this way? And should we just enjoy it while it lasts?
Richie Sadlier joins us to talk about the 7-2 and the 1-6. Are they really the same thing? And at whom does he point the finger of blame in the target-rich environment of Manchester United?

Two footed, a goalscorer, a winner one of the most naturally gifted players of all time, it made you feel good to watch him play AND he gave us plenty to talk about on and off the pitch.
