Hot ref chat pot

Jimbo, Tom Williams, Adam Crafton and Dan Bardell pick apart another packed week of football fun.

The Carabao Cup’s biggest story is victory for Moyes at Old Trafford at last. Could Man United’s bloated squad have used the extra games to keep the squad happy?

United are Aston Villa’s bogey team and they meet at Old Trafford this weekend. And it’s Chelsea v Man City. Could the hardest week possible in world football define City’s season? Plus we examine Marcos Alonso’s stance on kneeling.

The North London derby looks to have potential for content. Can either team breach perhaps the clearest top 4 ever?

Elsewhere, the Premier League will say hello to its first ever foreign referee. Plus love bites, more fights in France and whether or not the launch of Wolves Records will lead to Conor Coady rapping unconvincingly.
