We look at Ralph Hasenhüttl’s Southampton triumph over Jürgen Klopp’s Liverpool, and peer beneath the surface of champions’ minor slump, which has left them languishing at the top of the table.
There’s a tribute to City legend Colin Bell, an in-depth tactical analysis of the false nine, a comparison of the motivational talents of Phil Neville and David Brent, a look at Covid woes in the WSL, and a semi-staged reading of the Trippier Tapes.
