Chelsea peruse the transfer market, single-legged European ties, and Dimitri Payet sticks the boot in

With the football schedule briefly on pause, we turn our attentions to the transfer window as Chelsea look to replace their homegrown talents with expensive imported ones. On today's episode, Kate, Pete and Andy are here to discuss Kai Havertz and Thiago Silva’s imminent arrivals as well as Leicester’s James Maddison signing a four-year contract extension in a service station. 

We also revel in some more glorious pettiness from various Marseille players, wonder whether these single-legged Champions League ties may be here to stay and reflect on Patrice Evra’s recent interview with Donald McRae.
