Listen on

Episode notes

This week, the lads are joined by James Grimes from The Big Step initiative which aims to raise awareness around the issues with gambling ads in football. As gambling brands and advertising becomes more and more prevalent on TV and around the grounds, James speaks about his own history with addiction and the efforts The Big Step are going to curb the impact ads are having on gambling addiction. We speak about the why so much advertising can be so harmful, the poor messaging brands are sending out and why we might look on bookmakers as we do now with tobacco.


Elsewhere, the lads cut through the Champions League action this week, Erik Ten Hag's imminent arrival at Manchester United, Michael Obafemi's case for a chance in the Ireland team and the latest on the Qatar World Cup - plus the massive investigative report from Der Spiegel into Manchester City's financial acrobatis.
