Episode 2196: Scholes Says Michael’s Got No Carrickter, Vera Pauw On The Prospect Of World Cup Qualification And Safeguarding Against Abuse In Women’s Football
Manchester United welcomed an interim coach to see them through to the arrival of their interim coach last night, and Michael Carrick’s first game hadn’t even started before Paul Scholes had torched him on BT Sport. Does a 2-0 win away to Villareal mean they should give him the job for keeps?

We talk to Vera today about her team’s results, lack of excuses from here on in, her collaborative approach to management, the Dutch style, and after some high profile cases in the USA recently, how she deals with cases of abuse in women’s football.
