Crystal Palace stun Manchester City and Nuno sacked mid-pod – Football Weekly

We begin at the Etihad, as Patrick Vieira’s Crystal Palace produced one of the shocks of the season so far to beat champions Manchester City by two goals. Why did we all underestimate the former Arsenal midfielder’s managerial credentials? And is this result a blip for Pep’s men, or maybe indicative of a wider issue?

Afterwards we discuss ‘El Sackico’ as Ole Gunnar Solskjær managed to pull off another big result under pressure. Sadly, in this fight to the death, there had to be a victim, and it was Nuno Espírito Santo who has now lost his job at Tottenham Hotspur. The news broke just at the end of the podcast, much to Max’s annoyance.

Afterwards, we round up the rest of the Premier League results, the stoppage time mix-up at Leyton Orient and another listener sends in an email of a time they met a wild Barry Glendenning in public.

Back on Wednesday.
