Description

Darren Fletcher is joined by the former Newcastle midfielder Kevin Nolan and the former Newcastle defender Jonathan Woodgate as it’s been confirmed that Steve Bruce will take charge of Newcastle on Sunday for his 1000th match in football management.

The panel discuss whether the speculation around his job this week has been fair, how the new owners are going to transform Newcastle and if they will struggle to sign “superstar” players despite now being the richest club in the world.

You’ll also hear Pep Guardiola’s reaction to Raheem Sterling’s comments about wanting to play abroad in his career at some point.

And the former Chelsea defender Mario Melchiot joins the pod to give us an insight into what it’s like to play under Claudio Ranieri as he prepares to take his first game as Watford manager against Liverpool.
