It was a bad night in Bern for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, but a good one for those who like to see refs give red cards for dangerous tackles as Aaron Wan Bissaka was sent off for a challenge on Christopher Martins Pereira of Young Boys.


We discuss (0 mins – 21.30 mins) the sticky situation Solskjaer now finds himself in as he defers to a 36 year old Ronaldo who doesn’t run around much anymore. Would Fergie have accepted this? and “who’s the mediocre one?” asks Ken Early.


We chat with Caitlin Thompson (21.30 mins) of Racquet Magazine about Emma Raducanu’s miraculous win at the US Open, her earning potential, her career potential and why it is that the NYC crowd cheered for Novak Djokovic once it was clear he might finally lose a game.

Plus there’s more suggestions for the new “let it flow” Premier League logo, Malcolm Gladwell V David Epstein and Channel 4’s bold and highly successful move to bring tennis free to air.
