Ep. 12: Ivan Toney's Quality & Tomfoolery

Jack and Manny discuss all the big matches and storylines from this past weekend:

  • Brentford’s 3-2 victory over Nottingham Forest and Ivan Toney’s clever rule-breaking before sweeping in a free kick.

  • Cristiano Ronaldo’s (valid) criticism of the Ballon d’Or and FIFA “The Best,” awards that he said are losing credibility.

  • Bayer Leverkusen’s thrilling stoppage-time victory over RB Leipzig, coming from behind twice to maintain their unbeaten record across all competitions this season. Xabi Alonso will be Real Madrid’s head coach within three years!

  • Arsenal’s 5-0 demolition of Crystal Palace, a bounce-back game for the would-be title challengers and big problems for Roy Hodgson.

  • THE SET PIECE: the top four young attacking midfielders in Europe.

  • Two points bizarrely dropped for West Ham in a 2-2 draw with Sheffield United.

  • Liverpool’s 4-0 victory over Bournemouth, more a showcase of the Reds’ ruthlessness in front of goal than dominace throughout the game. Diogo Jota is a sniper!
