Don Diego For Da Laydeez

The section explaining the significance of Maradona to Argentina by Jonathan Wilson was just about the most powerful and beautiful piece I've heard on any podcast.

Max is a constant echo and there are other sound quality issues. Assume it's just a blip ad it's usually fine but I'm 10 mins in and that's enough for me.

It's increasingly difficult to justify supporting this podcast when the mothership has such unbalanced biased reporting.

Can we have a random Brighton fan on the podcast anytime a VAR decision goes against us or is that just for when it happens to Liverpool?

Liverpool fan says VAR should be allowed for red card offences such as Pickford's challenge on VVD but shouldn't be used for tight offside calls like Mane's. Do they actually listen to themselves? Mane was offside. Without the lines it was clear he was closer to the endline than the last defender.

England had a great world cup for beating Panama or whoever it was. Maguire made an error of judgement by going to Greece. So it's Greece's fault? They talk some load of rubbish when it comes to England.
