Today we talk about a shambolic World Cup match rehearsal in Qatar, and an investigation from Josimar magazine in Norway involving Manchester City, a high-profile team boasting some surprisingly low-profile sponsors.

We also discuss Roberto de Zerbi and whether he can Google his way to success at Brighton to defy some high-profile critics.

David Sneyd drops into studio to talk about Ireland’s build-up to the Nations League match at Hampden Park on Saturday. As Ken’s dog Teddy makes a big impact we ask how should Stephen Kenny set up to face the physical, passionate Scots, and who would David pick on the night?
