There's a time and a place for a Panenka

Hugh Woozencroft is joined by Gregor Robertson, Alyson Rudd and Matt Dickinson. The weekend’s games get dissected, but are Liverpool and Manchester City already showing signs they may not be the top 2 at the end of the season? Aston Villa put in another impressive performance - but does the result tell us more about Arsenal’s problems? Do clubs have any right to complain about short turnarounds when they agree the television deals? Just when you think you’ve seen everything VAR has to offer, Patrick Bamford’s sleeve is ruled offside - how long can this go on? The Last Word centres around the curious use of the Panenka penalty (Sorry Ademola!)
