Welcome to this week’s Talking the Blues podcast with Andy and George Costigan. We look back on the Anfield derby, we question the integrity of the Premier League and the damage the lack of governance is doing to the game.The Merseyside derby should be a jewel in the Premier League crown yet is becoming a non-event, driven in part by the inequities of the modern game.
We examine a terrible week for Everton football club with more appalling allegations and news concerning our would-be purchasers, 777 and ask who is going to stand up for our football club? Who is going to rescue us from our existing owner and his chosen (but not yet approved) successors?
Finally, during the recording of the podcast the sad passing of Sir Bobby Charlton was announced. We pay our respects to a truly great man and send heartfelt condolences to his family and friends.
