We discuss Chelsea’s win in Bucharest, and Neil Lennon’s long-awaited exit from Celtic.
And as Netflix release a new Pelé documentary, Tim Vickery joins us to discuss the life of Brazil’s finest player. Is anyone convinced by his display of humility in the film? Should he have done more to stand up against Brazil’s military dictatorship? And can he still realistically claim to be the greatest of all time?
