The Football Round Up – Livingston on form, Jose Mourinho’s boring football and 2021 predictions
The Football Round Up returns for the last time in 2020, with plenty of action from Scotland and England for Jack Donnelly, Struan Garvie, Jamie Mcintosh and Graeme Sinclair to discuss.
In Big Question, the boys discuss which past or present footballer they’d love to have join them for Christmas Dinner, with shouts for Marcus Rashford, Craig Gordon and – unsurprisingly – Ally McCoist thrown in to the mix.
The panel spend their Scottish coverage discussing Rangers’ win over Hibernian at Ibrox, Odsonne Edouard’s influential performance against Hamilton and whether or not Alex Dyer should face the sack for losing his fifth game in a row at Kilmarnock. Jack’s given plenty of time to talk about Ayr, as they lost 5-3 away at Hearts and the boys send their condolences to Chris Sutton, who sadly lost his father on Boxing Day after a long battle with dementia.
There’s a big focus on Arsenal’s win over Chelsea, with both managers’ futures being discussed, while Liverpool’s draw against West Brom is mentioned, as Graeme ponders which centre back his club could make a move for in January. There’s a lengthy discussion on whether or not Jose Mourinho is a good manager or not and the more realistic possibility of Sheffield United being relegated.
With a Christmas break across Europe, Last Ditch Challenge didn’t have much actual football to be talked about, but Santos made sure that we had something to discuss, as they contested that Lionel Messi’s record of 644 goals for Barcelona does not eclipse Pele’s record, since they believe that goals in non-competitive matches should count. Finally, they set out some predictions for 2021 – some more ridiculous than others!
