Kaushik and Ryan review the Deportivo win which lifted the spirits of the squad and fans lightly after the derbi debacle. They focus on Bale’s impressive performance, and Illarra’s equally disappointing show. The crew also discusses Lucas Silva’s debut and answers some excellent (as always) listener questions such as – What is the best and worst Real Madrid debut we have seen? What would our squad players be in life if they weren’t footballers.. Yup, what a question! And of course.. CL is back, so some predictions are in the show as well. Enjoy!
