    Barcelona bound for Europa League

    Barcelona bound for Europa League

    As Barcelona fail to make the Champions League knockout stages for the first time in 20 years Spanish football journalist Pete Jenson joins the pod to discuss the financial implications and whether it could be years before the club even qualify for the competition again.

    It was a night to remember for Robbie Savage’s son Charlie, and Zidane Iqbal, who became Manchester United’s first ever British South Asian player, with both coming on during United's 1-1 draw with Young Boys.

    Chelsea drew as well. They conceded in stoppage time to miss out on winning their group and Thomas Tuchel has some very interesting things to say afterwards including how his side’s “behaviour changes when we take the lead”.

    Rangnick, Rafa and goalscoring records

    Darren Fletcher and guests discuss Ralf Rangnick’s impressive opening media conference as Manchester United manager before taking charge for the first time this weekend against Crystal Palace. They debate whether the German can have the type of impact Thomas Tuchel had at Chelsea last season or whether there might be some resistance from his squad to being asked to play in such a different style. They ask where accountability should lie for Everton's predicament, after reports a board meeting has been called with Rafa Benitez's future as manager believed to be on the agenda.
