Best podcast of the season, awesome. Please do more of these. How about the 1970 World Cup, that was a feast of brilliance?

For offside, just make it offside if you can see space between the attacking player and the defender if he's ahead of the defender. Simple

Ellis is soooo much more charming and funnier than Max. The banterometer goes down to an acceptable level with him too.

If the fixture congestion is due to cup competitions, then get rid of the league cup. I can't think of any reason for both the FA cup and League Cup to co-exist. Liverpool could put out a reserve squad and give a giant middle finger tonthe league cup.

Son gets a "shithousery" mention but Kane going down clutching his face after not being touched is ignored. Hmmm...

Sounds like Musa has never left whatever area of Berlin he lives in if he thinks the bars in Prenzlauer Berg close at 10. Ah the snobbery of the new wave of gentrifier...

Same as always, onto the next game, weekend fixtures will erase the racism from the memory. VAR controvery, Man United's form, who's the next manager to be sacked etc etc. Its how it always is, nothing changes.
