Play • 51 min
Host Tom White is joined by Dharmesh Sheth and Pete Hall to discuss the fallout from another dramatic Deadline Day. They name their winners and losers and give their assessment on the clubs that secured the best business this January. Newcastle smashed their transfer record for the first time since 2005 with Miguel Almiron arriving at St James’ Park for £21m. But will that quell the fans’ discontent towards the ownership and convince manager Rafa Benitez to stay at the club? The panel debate whether the exit of Marouane Fellaini signals the start of a new era at Manchester United, while they discuss the importance of Anthony Martial signing a new contract. Finally, they look ahead to the summer transfer window and what the future may hold for the likes of Eden Hazard, Marko Arnautovic, Toby Alderweireld and Wilfried Zaha.

Ranking Post-Lockdown Football Dreams
On Monday, the UK announced its roadmap towards a world without lockdowns, a world which screams to us - full stadiums and football as we love it. It's not quite a global movement yet, but a glut of vaccines means that wherever you are, it feels like the moment is coming where we can look to an open sky once more. Never again will we take a trip to a new ground or to see the players we love, for granted. With all that in mind, we thought we'd talk about our post-lockdown football dreams and what they might be like - and there's a lot going on here. From VAR decisions we don't understand to train journeys around the country; from trips abroad to stadiums we're gasping to experience to shared moments with our mates; seeing unique players in the flesh and enjoying a sense of community wherever you're watching the game. These are what we can't wait for, but we hope they'll inspire your own dreams about the beautiful game as well. In a particularly harmonious episode, Things We Love covers the Fantasy PL leak that has wound up Aston Villa, Bayern-conquering Eintracht Frankfurt's march into the top four, and the record of Villarreal's Gerard Moreno, who NEEDS to be on the plane in Spain's squad for EURO 2020 (2021). There's a Melon of the Week too, and Sam ranks things that should be easy, but are actually hard - ending in a lesson on how not to whistle.
