SPM 216: Managers' teams or players' teams‪?‬ Set Piece Menu Football Podcast

    • Sports

The football: Why are some teams defined by the success or otherwise of the man who leads them, and why is the story of others told through the prism of their players? Whose fault is it when things go wrong? Who is the chief architect of their triumphs? We discuss if there are managers' teams, and players' teams, and what it says about them.

The food: After an email last week that wondered whether you might like to donate food to those more in need than the four of us during lockdown, a listener has made the first suggestion: a food bank local to Steven and Hugh. If you are so inclined, please head to https://www.justgiving.com/fallowfield-withingtonfoodbank, or please email setpiecemenu@gmail.com with your own ideas of how to help in these difficult times. Thank you!
