Episode 2616: Trent In Mid, Chelsea’s Common Touch, Franco Trending, Boom Boom Becker
Our football correspondent hates to say I told you so, but with Liverpool’s best performance of the season coinciding with Trent Alexander Arnold’s move to midfield (sort of), Ken, heat map in hand, is forced to go against his anti-gloat instincts.
Boom! Boom! The World Vs Boris Becker is a documentary about the rise, fall and colourful life of the former Wimbledon champ who, among other things, once attained diplomatic immunity through a position as a cultural attache for the Central African Republic! And who better to discuss all this with than Second Captains favourite and the editor of Racquet Magazine, Caitlin Thompson.
Plus there’s Todd Boehly’s finger pointing, supine Frank and Real Madrid get Franco and fascism trending.
