Episode 2781: Why Always United, Football Flails Over Gaza And Israel
Manchester United continue to captivate… A second successive 3-0 home defeat means they are currently having their worst start to a season since 1962-63. We talk through some of the midweek Carabao.
We also talk about the latest developments in football’s response to the violence in Gaza and Israel, as a feud develops between fans of St Pauli and Celtic, Mainz and Anwar El Ghazi contradict each other, and the English FA indicates it is ready to pass responsibility for policing players’ social media content on to the police.
Rich Jolly joins us to talk about last night’s match at Old Trafford. Is there any way we can pin the blame for this one on Bruno Fernandes? When does Rich believe the rot set in? And let’s face it, is Eddie Howe doing a tremendous job?
