Episode 1910: Cowardly Lions, Furious Celts
As Raul Jimenez recovers in hospital after fracturing his skull in an awful clash of heads with David Luiz, Troy Deeney has attracted derision by arguing that players should self-diagnose when they have suffered brain damage. But why does he feel that way, and how should we understand his legitimate concerns?
Miguel Delaney and Jacob Steinberg join us to talk about last night’s stalemate between the London title contenders, and confront the awkward question of how certain people might have been ‘wrong’ to write off Jose Mourinho.
Re "little pony", Mourinho has an incredible ability to make people – and particularly huge fan bases – think black is white.
Little wonder he dispensed with a PR because nobody is better at it than him.
You'd wonder what he'd be like as a politicianhttps://t.co/5UcZfsKzIA
