Deadline Day review, fixing Utd's transfer strategy and Arsenal's new ruthless approach
Play • 1 hr
Were Manchester United right to sell Romelu Lukaku without signing a replacement? ESPN's Mark Ogden joins the show to analyse the club's recruitment strategy. Arsenal provided the biggest shocks on Deadline Day - and the Evening Standard's chief football correspondent James Olley reveals how a 'ruthless' new approach to transfers has seen them boost top-four hopes. Across North London there was plenty of business at Tottenham, too, but we reveal how one of their big Deadline Day deals almost collapsed in the final hours. And can any team break the stranglehold of the top six? We look at the potential surprise packages in the Premier League.

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. It's Ranks!   See for privacy and opt-out information.
