Irish hangovers, Chinese takeovers, and the king of crumbles

Oct 12, 2017, 02:46 PM

There’s a doctor in the house for today’s edition of The Totally Football Show, and not just any doctor: Dr Tom Markham, the first person in the UK to receive a doctorate in football finance. Tom joins James Richardson, James Horncastle and Julien Laurens to reflect on the remarkable conclusion to the international break, before getting stuck into the return of the Premier League et al.

Will United’s trip to Liverpool be even less entertaining than last year’s encounter at Anfield? Can City continue their hot streak against Stoke ? Will Crystal Palace ever score again?

Also discussed: more on the Newcastle takeover; rhubarb v gooseberry v apple and blackcurrant crumble; and President George Weah
