About this Episode

Paddy McKenna, Noz Choudry and Si Lloyd unpick another hectic weekend in the Premier League starting with the Jordan Pickford and his horrific tackle on Virgil Van Dijk which saw the defender ruled out for 7 months at least with a damaged ACL. Noz makes the point that you can argue the tackle wasn't malicious but you can't say it's not reckless again from Jordan Pickford and that's a big problem. Si Lloyd discusses why Premier League PPV, though terrible, may be accepted as a necessary spend by fans who cannot go to the game. And there's a discussion about some of the best fans' chants with Ross Barkley's 'we've got a diamond called Ross Barkley' making the transfer from Everton to Villa, skipping over Chelsea in the process.3
