    Cheered by the revelation that Ross County FC now have three goalkeepers named Ross, magazine editor Andy Lyons, writer Harry Pearson and host Daniel Gray talk losing streaks, players who won their first international caps late in their careers and the stars who won none at all. There is a look inside the pages of issue 401 of When Saturday Comes, including Harry’s tribute to Jack Charlton. Record Breakers takes us to Cesena, New York and Brentford, and Joey Crone of podcast The Nii Lamptey Show joins Dan to talk all things Coventry City.
