Someone teach Chris Sutton what a straw man is

I have enjoyed this podcast for a long time, and I have for the most part enjoyed Chris Sutton's contribution, but recently he has resorted to straw man (most recently when arguing about West Ham's midfield with Paul Ince) and it's starting to feel like a podcast about below the line. Stop it Chris. You're better than that.
