We begin by looking back at Cristiano Ronaldo’s second debut for Manchester United, as he twice in a comfortable 4-1 win over Newcastle. Do the doubters need to eat humble pie? Or should they maybe wait before taking that mouthful?
In part two, we review the rest of the Premier League, as Liverpool and Chelsea both put three past their respective opponents. Is Romelu Lukaku going to be the difference for the Blues? And have we all underestimated Jürgen Klopp’s side? Also, we praise Crystal Palace, who shocked Tottenham Hotspur in Saturday’s early kick-off.
Finally, we discuss players catching beer glasses, referees getting cramp and Hinckley’s 18-0 win in the FA Vase.
Oh, and John Brewin proclaims that the listeners of Football Weekly have rubbish music taste.
Back on Wednesday.
