Episode 2612: The Todd Squad, Napoli Dolorosa
Todd Boehly, for once, was guilty of over-optimism as his sunny pre-match prediction did not play out at the Bernabeu. After a 2-0 defeat there is much work ahead if Lampard, Boehly, Corden et al are to turn this around.
We talk about the Mane-Sane drama at Bayern, and detail some allegations which have been reported against PSG coach Christoph Galtier.
Jacob Steinberg was there to see Madrid beat Chelsea, Terry Daley was at San Siro for Milan’s victory over Napoli. We talk about Todd Boehly and why he is like this, whether there is reason for long-term optimism at Chelsea, and how Napoli’s greatest season since the Maradona era hasn’t played out against the sort of ecstatic backdrop you might expect.
