Spurs strong and stable as chaos reigns at Old Trafford

Natalie Sawyer is back in the studio, alongside Alyson Rudd and Bill Edgar on The Game podcast.


With The Times reporting that Anthony Martial has been offered a 5 year contract by Manchester United, is this a power-play from Ed Woodward to indicate he and Martial will outlast Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford? And does Mourinho deserve more respect or has he crafted the dullest side in the top 6? Plus hear why Alyson Rudd thinks Zinedine Zidane might not be the right man for United.


The panel look ahead to Watford v Spurs on Sunday, two teams with 100% records, two teams who had very quiet summer transfer windows. Does stability breed champions in the Premier League era? Bill Edgar digs into the record books to find out.


And The Times’ Scottish football correspondent Michael Grant joins us to look ahead to the first Old Firm match of the season as Celtic host Rangers on Sunday. What effect could this game have on the managerial careers of Brendan Rodgers and Steven Gerrard?
