Winter Break, Window Watch & the Death of the League Cup

The FC90 podcast returns this week in the midst of the Premier League's first ever winter break.

Following Jurgen Klopp's controversial decision to abstain from attending Liverpool's 4th round FA Cup replay against Shrewsbury, the winter break is placed under scrutiny.

Regular host James Jones is joined by Football FanCast's Jack Saville and Matt Dawson, who are on hand to offer their dulcet tones, while EFL expert Chris Thorpe returns to the podcast to complete the lineup.

The January transfer window is also on the agenda as the FC90 squad deliver their verdicts on the winners and losers following a Premier League spending spree which totalled £230m.

Jack has the keys to Christy's Corner in the co-host's absence, and prompts the team to suggest alternative ideas for domestic cup competitions, with the FA Cup and League Cup seemingly enduring an identity crisis.

Finally, the team discuss the emergence of Borussia Dortmund's Giovanni Reyna, who is making waves in the shadow of Erling Braut Haaland and has been dubbed the next Christian Pulisic.
