As COVID-19 postponements rampage through the Premier League, Charlie Eccleshare joins us to make sense of the league's willingness to include injuries and AFCON departures in their numbers, why they haven't aligned with other big European leagues in forcing through academy talent, why the rules mightn't change anytime soon, plus the sporting integrity going forward as teams face a packed schedule for the rest of the season. (40:00mins)
Elsewhere, we chat about Rafa Benitez's departure at Everton as he takes down the house along with him, why Everton won't find themselves out of dysfunction anytime soon and what makes Manchester City so...meh? We discuss Ken Early's piece that talks about City's perfection that has removed any jeopardy from their seasons.
And we lax lyrical on Adam Idah following his first Premier League goal this past weekend.
