Episode 2203: The Mo Show, Ballon B’ore, Ropey Times For Rafa, Communism Infiltrates The PL
“No comment”, said Mo Salah when asked about his seventh place in the Ballon D’Or. If only he’d been that diplomatic in response to the question about his second goal, when he exploited a mistake by Seamus Coleman.

But were the France Football voters really that far off the mark?
Still angry about the Ballon D'Or? Maybe you'll chill out once you realize who the voters are and what the criteria are (especially things like "career achievement" and "talent"). And maybe you'll treat this for what it is: a spectacle, not an MVP award.https://t.co/Ezs3MXQvwE

There is time to consider the wisdom of Phil Neville, Leo Tolstoy and Angus Kinnear before Dion Fanning and Patrick Boyland join us to talk about Everton 1-4 Liverpool. Where do Everton go once the smoke clears – and why haven’t Liverpool signed up Salah already?
– Anger towards a board who have put club in perilous position
– Player frustration with Benitez 'ugly football' and persistence with Rondon
– Some stars looking for a way out

When you score eleven goals in a match, when is the right time to stop celebrating?
