International’s A Needless Risk, Grealish Praise, Project Big Picture, PPV Football & Pre Match Rituals

Jamie, Al and Christy are back and have lots to discuss after a busy week in the football world.

They start by telling the story of an interesting exchange on Twitter this week with a national journalist……

They take a look at International football and whether we should be sending players off around the world during a global pandemic?

With lots of reaction in the news to the controversial plans for Project Big Picture, the lads give their thoughts on whether it’s simply just a power grab by the top Premier League teams?

Continuing the theme of money within football, the lads react to the news of the Premier League asking fans for £14.95 to watch a select numbers of matches in October. Surely fans are paying enough to watch football already?
