Play • 1 hr 4 min
Neymar is AWOL from PSG and the Transfer Talk panel discuss what it will take for Barcelona to re-sign him (01:50). French football journalist Jonathan Johnson joins the show to reveal why Philippe Coutinho is likely to be central to any deal (08:30), while South American football expert Tim Vickery dials in to give his assessment. Tim provides a scouting report of the new Brazil star that filled Neymar's boots at the Copa America (23:30) - and there's details of another set-back for Manchester United's Alexis Sanchez. Paul Pogba wants to leave United - but is in Australia as part of the club's pre-season tour. United We Stand editor Andy Mitten joins on the phone (33:29) from the club's base to explain just how the midfielder has been behaving - and where he could be going. Dharmesh reveals the possible Pogba replacements United are already lining up (51:22), before the panel round up the latest on deals at Burnley, Juventus, Man City, Everton, Tottenham and Aston Villa (01:00:00).

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.
