    Antonio & Cairney: Will A Salary Cap Make The Premier League Fairer?

    As Man City seem all but destined to make it four in a row, the boys wonder if Arteta actually has what it takes to win a league title. We debate the merits of a proposed Premier League salary cap and whether it would actually make things fairer. Plus, following Sweden's decision not to introduce VAR in top-flight football, our hosts ask if it's time we put the continued existence of the ever-controversial tech to a vote.

    Antonio & Cairney: Did Haaland Go Missing Against Arsenal?

    We welcome the boys back to the pod after a two-week break and there’s a lot to talk about. There were highs and lows for both Fulham and West Ham during that time and Michail is very eager to discuss his return to goalscoring form. Plus, we go long on that much-hyped City v Arsenal fixture and chat about Roy Keane’s description of Erling Haaland as a ‘League 2’ player.

    Antonio & Cairney: Are Arsenal Fans Delusional?

    The boys dissect that epic Liverpool-Manchester City clash and there's a lot of love for Virgil Van Dijk - though not so much for VAR.
    As the most exciting title race in years shapes up, they all give their final predictions for the top four, with very different results.
    Plus, Rickie shocks the boys with the news that saying ‘megs’ can now get a youth player banned for three weeks. We ask, should we be discouraging young players from showing off?
