Episode 2719: Spanish System Victorious, Chelsea Crash, Foden Feeds On Newcastle, Angeball Gets Liftoff
Spain are the women’s World Cup champions – a victory for both the universally-admired Spanish coaching system and for one not-very-admired Spanish coach in particular.
Mark Critchley and Jonathan Wilson join us to talk through the weekend’s football.
Chelsea crashed and burned at West Ham – teething problems or a portent of doom? Critch saw Manchester City defang Newcastle, with Phil Foden exceptional – where is he likely to be playing this season?
Meanwhile, Wilson was at Spurs to see the liftoff of Angeball. What are the early signs of the new approach at Tottenham? Can Richarlison replace Harry Kane as the centre-forward? And why do Manchester United seem surprised to find themselves playing Premier League matches already?
