What’s new with the Champions League?


Hugh Woozencroft is joined by Gregor Robertson, Tom Clarke and Molly Hudson. With eight teams remaining in the Champions League draw, we’re figuring out our dream draw and which teams are most likely to go all the way this season. Times European football correspondent Ian Hawkey joins us in talking about all things Real Madrid, which leads to a sharing of our favorite memories of Los Blancos. Molly brings us the last of the women’s game with the eighth Champions League draw decided and Fran Kirby back in good shape for Chelsea. This episode was recorded before Gareth Southgate announced his England squad for the World Cup qualifiers. We assess the potential inclusions and the level of success it needs to achieve at Euros to be considered successful. Scotland are also gearing up for the delayed tournament and Gregor has some thoughts on who he would like to see on the squad. The conversation is about changing allegiance and whether the current rules protect small nations. We end the episode by choosing a player from another nation that we would have liked to have included in our national team.
