Episode 2761: Rolls Royce Rice, Crisis City, Time Travelling Noughties Coach, Freedom Football
At least there was one Scot who turned up on Saturday. We savour the anguish in the voice of our Stretford End correspondent, who sent a message of hopelessness late in the second half when all seemed lost.
We were (mostly) spared another week of “it’s not incompetence it’s corruption” thanks to Gabriel Martinelli’s late deflected winner at the Emirates.
Lars Sivertsen and Jonathan Wilson join us to talk about the two big games of the weekend.
Is it finally really happening for Arsenal? What is the problem with Lars’s boy, Erling Haaland? Why was Brighton-Liverpool one of the most interesting games Jonathan has seen in a long time? And what can Scandinavia teach us about football’s fight for freedom?
