Left Field / Spurs Kane-celled, Adios Aguero, Atletico, Philthy Mickelson & Sunset Bear Defeat

Episode notes

It wasn’t a classic Premier League finale but Harry Kane probably won’t care. The man who wants to quit Spurs to win trophies helped himself to a couple of personal accolades on Sunday as he finished the season with the most goals and most assists. He’s quite good but is he £150million in a pandemic good? We’re set to find out this summer.

Harry’s goal against Leicester sparked a dramatic collapse by the Foxes who somehow ended the day outside the Champions League places having been in them for time immemorial. After their FA Cup fairytale, this was a plot twist Brendan Rodgers did not want.

Spurs’ win also denied Arsenal a place in the Europa Conference League. The red side of north London might be [insert Alan Partridge shrug gif] but surely there are concerns about the direction of travel at the Emirates? We also discuss all the emotional goodbyes as tributes poured in for Sergio Aguero, Gini Wijnaldum, Nuno Espirito Santo and more.

Elsewhere in football, we run the rule over some madcap playoff action and head to Spain and France where plucky underdogs Atletico Madrid and Lille sealed famous league titles.

In part two, 50-something Phil Mickelson proved he’s still got it as his leathery skin and smooth lefty swing sent the crowds at the Quail Hollow wild. Victory in the US PGA Championship at Kiawah Island on Sunday made him golf's oldest major winner. On a scale of 1-10, how much does he look like a used car salesman?

We round off the show with a quickfire check-in on gymnastics, where Simone Biles again proved she’s got great feet for a little woman, the Monaco Grand Prix, which looked nice on TV again, and the NBA and NFL playoffs.

Enjoy the show!
