Episode notes

This week's guest is one half of United's most prolific strike partnership, Dwight Yorke dialled into the Pod from Dubai.

In our extended chat with Dwight, he revealed how an early childhood car accident influenced his outlook on life and goes some way to explaining his laid back persona.

The Trinidadian also told us about the time he hung up on Sir Alex Ferguson, thinking it was a prank call! Plus we also got the first-hand account of when he asked the boss for a year off, after Man Utd's famous Treble winning season in 1999.

As always, the guys read out some of your e-mails at the end of the episode. Thank you to everyone who takes the time to get in touch.
