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.

Barry is one of my favorite parts of the pod and as far as football goes he and I see eye to eye. I am not even a big trump supporter but to take a firm stand as he did with such an uneducated view is ridiculous. in the same pod that he says he isnt from the area so he cant speak about Mike Ashley he speaks about trump and he definitely isnt from this area. trump is the first US president to support gay marriage but you all agree it is a bad time to be a gay person in the US. he has fixed the economy, avoided several wars already, and does more for people of color than any president before. as journalists I would have expected a more fact based argument rather than just " whaaaa he is a bad man". keep up the great work on the football and stay out of politics. thanks.

Apart from being a fantastic cup final and the pinnacle of club and cup football from around the world. An early start made you ask questions and gave us all expectations in anticipation of a spectacle to come. It was a shame it didn't carry on like that but once City got their first goal they were imperious and inevitably unstoppable. The beginning of the second half, however. And every half at Wembley before and since is a nation disgrace. That centre crowd, the heart of the audience, a display of our collective interest in our national game, was empty yet again!!!. V.I.P seats, to busy schmoozing to show their faces, what a signal!? some display to show to the rest of the world watching how we feel about our national game. Money has corrupted that position. Status has alienated a more worthy recipient. How can our national stadium be so badly managed? the home and birth place of football, a game that has enthralled generations and anyone with an imagination.

You asked a dethroned Man United fan for his impartial opinion on Man City's "dominance". Time to unsubscribe from this podcast. Bye.

The Village sounds like the cheesiest, overly dramatic gush I've ever had the displeasure to hear. These ads suck
