Move Over, Messi..

Hugh Woozencroft is joined by Gregor Robertson, Tom Roddy and Jonathan Northcroft. The Champions League is back - Kylian Mbappé turned it on in Messi’s back yard and Erling Braut Haaland blew Sevilla away - is this the moment the next generation take over? Are Mbappé and Haaland the new Messi and Ronaldo? The Times’ European Football Correspondent, Ian Hawkey joins the conversation to give his insight into current situations at Barcelona and PSG. We play fantasy football to place world-beating players into curveball sides - Mbappé to Leicester City anyone? Referee Darren Drysdale has been charged with improper conduct by the FA after appearing to square up to Ipswich’s Alan Judge in their game against Northampton this week. Gregor gives us his unique insight as a former player and questions whether it’s any surprise an official has finally reacted to player pressure. The Merseyside derby comes around again this weekend with both sides in need of a win - could we see a classic at Anfield?
