Oh and Kane is the Rooney of his generation. Top foreign clubs will tend not to want them because they are very English style centre forwards and they will be too expensive. Liniker was seen as a poacher, like Gerd Müller or Inzaghi and Bale was a unique phenomen, possibly more like Henry being a winger, before being put in a centre forward shirt (Bale to RM was bigger news than Henry to Arsenal though). Kane, would have to have a team adjusted around him and the big clubs and the big players at them aren't going to be too enthusiastic about that!

Really enjoy these podcasts with knowledgeable people. On Spurs, from a manager's perspective, there are two main issues: you are not working for Spurs, you are working for Levy. Spurs is a stepping-stone club for managers, not a destination. Managers go to bigger clubs afterwards and win trophies there. Spurs are not serial winners and are under illusions they can and will be. Managers at the top level know this.

This and the previous episode has been the best broadcast (pod, TV, radio) on the Super League scandal and aftermath. At its most fundamental level, like any sport, to play football you just need players. To make serious money out of football, you need fans. The current crop of billionaire owners treat European football as a business first, because they are are profit, not football, motivated.

if Manchester United end in top 4 or win the league before Liverpool,as the strong supporter of lfc,I will switch my loyal to Manchester United without hesitation.But if Liverpool win the league, United will remain my greatest enemies in football forever.

I understand why there is so much talk around Liverpool. I don't understand how Neville goes from on Sunday saying Utd are fighting 4th. Then Monday saying they will win the league sooner than Liverpool. that may well be but I don't understand why he spends so much of his time talking about lfc. he talks about salah leaving in 12 months. If he does leave he will leave for 120m+. same as mane would be more. Utd do not have one player that can command transfer fee like that. And no top teams want any of Utd players. lukaku gine to inter wh I have not been a top team in Italy or Europe for best part of a decade. since mourinho. you have the world's most expensive defender in Maguire. truth is he is a good centre back but not as good as Virgil. looks more clumsy on the ball. If Virgil was sold he again would command 100m+. Neville has asked for seasons for Utd to come up with a transfer strategy and looks like they are trying to copy lfc on and off the pitch. maybe Neville needs to see that and say that is what they are doing. Utd have offered contracts of high wages to very average players lingard for example. Would not get near lfc starting 11. Neville try and acknowledge with out any bias and speak about our club with respect. for years lfc were bench Mark. Then Utd earned to be most dominant club in England with league titles no where near in Europe. now lfc are the most decorated club in England talk about our club with respect. I ask you one question. you talk about players from lfc not been there in 12 months. football is like this. but if they go the fee will be huge. tell me who you can say won't be there in 12months for massive fee. Tell me who will want any of your players for Barcelona. Madrid. Bayern. none of the top teams want Utd players because there not good enough. pogba if Madrid really wanted him they would pay big money. they don't want him that bad. turns out more than one question but answer them please.

All this hype and discussion about woman's football recently appears to me to be a tad on the nonessential side. But that's football i suppose, it generates conversations of many sorts, no matter how stupid it sometimes appears. The size of the goals do not need to be changed, can i say that. And all the parameters should absolutely stay the same, they're not children playing the game and I'd find it an insult to be treated in such a way. You will only ever get better by playing a better opponent. The U.S.A keeper was outstanding with some of the athleticism she showed in last night's performance and all round i thought the U.S.A team were the more professional and experienced outfit. The standard is improving in the woman's game, no doubt and the more involved people become with the sport then the quicker that progression will happen. You only need to look at woman's tennis at the moment to realise how far a sport can progress if it is treated with an equal level of respect for ever competitor that participates. Track and field equally, gymnastics, hockey. Christ, has anyone ever played hockey against a woman's team, you'll probably get your arse handed to you along with a few of your own teeth. The Olympic Games, for anyone who watches it is a great showcase for women's sport. The decathlon for example, gymnastics. The track races. The woman's one hundred metres is a phenomenally, fierce race, at the peak of a competitive edge for professional athletes. And I'm sure they're are many others. Mens football did not start off at the level it's played at now, everything takes time and the women playing the game now are making history, with every movement they make onto that football pitch, for every touch of the ball they take they lay down the foundations for future generations to play and entertain us all. Because that's what sport is surely all about. Entertainment and achievement.
