A wild Max Rushden appears to talk about everything that’s happened in football since the last show, along with Barry Glendenning, Andy Brassell and Priya Ramesh.

We start with the biggest story of the week – the sacking of Mark Sampson over the latest revelations with regards to his inappropriate conduct. We talk to our chief sports reporter Martha Kelner about the latest in this story.

Moving on, we discuss the Romelu Lukaku song and cover the fixtures in the Carabao Cup, stopping on the way to get a Dutch perspective from Priya on Frank de Boer’s removal from Crystal Palace and the ongoing employment of Ronald Koeman at Everton.

Next we hear from Sid Lowe following Real Madrid’s first loss of the season, an unexpected reverse to Real Betis. Andy gives us the lowdown on the midweek fixtures from Germany, Barry struggles through interruptions to complete his Italian round-up and Priya clues us all in on how the Eredivisie is shaping up this season.

Finally, we look ahead to this weekend’s fixtures, the panel discuss Rio Ferdinand’s move into the ring and we listen to a special Spurs song.

Unfortunately, we can’t turn comments on … for reasons we’re sure you can understand.
