Episode 2323: Long Ball Lampard, Chelsea Sale, The Ramsdale Express, Ricey’s Bad Weekend
No change at the top of the table but drama at the bottom, as Burnley and Everton both won to leave Coach Marsch’s Leeds as the new favourites to go down.
Declan Rice’s third place in the Football Writers’ award poll mystified many who felt he should have been higher. Losing at home to Arsenal made it four defeats in the last six for West Ham’s brave captain, but did the bantering goalkeeper Ramsdale get lucky?
We check in with Jacob Steinberg to hear the latest on the Chelsea ownership situation. When can we expect the decision? And what does the sanctioned Roman Abramovich have to do with this process?
Plus, there’s team Pickford, Lampard’s balls, Coleman’s equal and Jake Humphrey is absolutely clear about nothing.
