Ian is joined by Jeanette Kwakye and Ryan Hunn to discuss the Premier League’s FA Cup on full show (1:07) thanks to Spurs’ trip to Marine and upsets by Chorley and Crawley. They also discuss how surroundings and conditions can affect an elite athlete’s performance and mindset (7:29), Emile Smith Rowe’s continuing emergence, and the time Ian wound up his good friend Alan Shearer (13:47). Louie Barry and a young Aston Villa get a shout-out for their showing against Liverpool (19:33), as do Sheffield United, who won in the midst of a poor run (24:55). Fran Kirby gets her flowers for her four goals for Chelsea following a difficult period of her career (27:26). Finally, there’s some talk about what everyone’s watching, and Ian gives a detailed, tactical breakdown of Shrek Forever After (36:19).
