There’s more than one way to make your name in the Premier League. Until now Nathan Collins has been trying the quiet excellence way, but on Saturday against Man City he hopped on the fast track to building his profile internationally.

We also discuss a disgraceful episode in Spain, and the sad scenes at Munich’s Oktoberfest, where Bayern’s top brass tried and failed to look like they’re having a good time despite dropping nine of the last 12 points.

James Horncastle joins us to talk about how Juventus lost their stranglehold on Italian football. What and who is to blame for their fall? And who will win the culture war between the traditional values of Italian football and an ambitious new generation of internationally-influenced coaches?
