For his latest trick, Erling Haaland decided to outdo Johan Cruyff’s most famous goal, as City sped up to a blur in the last 20 to overwhelm Dortmund. What is there left to say? Pep did his best, valiantly namechecking Julian as always.

Meanwhile, English football seems united in opposition to Todd Boehly’s big ideas and dreams about what the game’s near future could look like.

Jonathan Wilson joins us to talk about whether Haaland makes City unbeatable, and why he as an oaken-hearted Englishman instinctively rejects Boehly’s star-spangled vision.
