Derby Delights (Premier League Weekend Review Show, Gameweek 7)

The pod focuses on the local clashes this week. The north east and London were both treated to a double bill of local rivalry. We take a look at what a difference local rivalry makes to the league and how geography can change ‘just another match’.

Referees were at the centre of the controversy this weekend with missed penalty calls and harsh decisions. Is a closer relationship between player and referee necessarily a better thing? Phil Neville doesn’t seem to think so. And the pod takes a look at how convincing United were against promoted Norwich, whilst Chelsea flowed past Bolton.

With the international break upon us we want your views on the season so far. What have been critical points for you? What topics crop up all the time and where needs to be given more focus. Email Laurence McKenna or comment below to share your ideas and we will bring them up on the next set of pods, which will continue throughout the break.
