About this Episode

First up we talk about Stan Kroenke, the big story in football is that he's buying out Alisher Usmanov to take total control of Arsenal Football Club. What are the implications for Arsenal and the fans? This will add AFC to the Kroenke family portfolio which already boasts the NFL side Los Angeles Rams, NBA's Denver Nuggets, the NHL outfit Colorado Avalanche and MLS side Colorado Rapids. Matt talks us through the Rapids and the Rams, but we also got help from Billy Marshall in dissecting the Kroenke effect at the Denver nuggets!

Next up we whizz through transfer deadline day in the UK, with only Chelsea making any additions in the last week of the window- Matt in particular was impressed by the moves that smaller teams made throughout the transfer window. Wolves and Fulham in particular, signed players of high prestige and we discussed why this trend suddenly appeared.

Across the atlantic, Matt runs us through Josh Perez's move to LAFC. Does this signal a change in the MLS mindset? Will we see less older designated players such as Zlatan and Rooney in the future?

Finally, we have our usual player profile but this one was a bit special....we were joined by Justin Sherman to dissect Kepa Arizabalaga, the new Chelsea goalkeeper. He gave us some excellent insights!
