Football+ Premier League Kick-Off Special

EFooty is back! With the new Premier League season just around the corner, host Paul Bennett is joined by Day Riley, Neil Hodgson and Rob Anderson to assess each club’s chances. Can anybody dethrone Pep’s City? Is Mourinho headed for another meltdown? Has Klopp run out of excuses? What of the new gaffers in London, Emery and Sarri? Should Newcastle owner Mike Ashley cough up more cash for Rafa, or is he right to spend his money on Sports Direct mugs instead? Will Wolves, Cardiff and Fulham survive among the big boys and - if so - who’s for the dreaded drop? Who’ll be first on the Megson Clock? The gang make their predictions and, perhaps just as importantly, wonder what’s the most extravagant delicacy you can eat at a game and reveal who is the best ever Neighbours character (it’s Football ‘PLUS…’ after all). There’s Benno’s Quiz and a Premier League special of Bootroom 101 - plus a free crate of beer for all our listeners! Get in touch by emailing footballplus@mail.uk or ...
