Episode 2532: Potter Flops, Big Wout’s Big Move, Hands Off Our Evan
Graeme Potter is the Chelsea coach… but why were the Chelsea fans singing the name of Thomas Tuchel at the Etihad last night?
The Currency’s Dion Fanning and Jacob Steinberg of the Guardian join us on today’s show to talk about Chelsea supporters’ unrealistic expectations, why Potter’s body language matters, why none of this is his fault – and why his blamelessness doesn’t actually matter.
We also talk about Evan Ferguson’s prospects of playing for England (hands off, Lee Carsley), Wout Weghurst’s triumphant return to the Premier League, and why Zinedine Zidane has fallen foul of a quote-friendly sports administrator.
