Episode 2485: Caoimhin Does It Again, FSG’s Plans, English Hope, Mane’s World Cup
Caoimhin Kelleher’s latest penalty shootout success provokes more talk about 1970s Leeds than anyone expected when we sat down to record.
We talk about why FSG might be ready to sell Liverpool, and discuss some of the World Cup squads that are coming through.
Oluwashina Okeleji joins us to talk about the prospects for the African teams at this World Cup. Will Sadio Mane make it? Is Vincent Aboubakar going to show Mo Salah how it’s done? And has the build-up to the World Cup in Africa been preoccupied with the same sorts of issues we have seen in much of the European commentary?
