A Message from the Football Daily Team
In these uncertain times, we want to keep you up to date with everything going on in football, and hopefully help put a smile on your face too. So here's a quick update from Mark Chapman, Ian Wright and Chris Sutton about the future of the Football Daily Podcast.
MNC: Would football behind closed doors work?
The gang is back together, well, almost. Mark Chapman, Ian Wright, Chris Sutton and Rory Smith are live from their own homes, but by the power of radio, are together for the Monday Night Club. In the hope of bringing a little laughter, expect to hear Chappers do a dodgy Aussie accent and questions like - just how handsome is Patrik Berger? Then, up for more serious discussion is whether or not football behind closed doors would work. With Leeds currently top of the Championship and looking likely to return to the Premier League for the first time in 16 years, we hear from striker Patrick Bamford. And Plymouth manager Ryan Lowe explains how he’s trying to manage his club from where he lives 300 miles away.
