Ian is joined by Musa Okwonga for what we’re now calling an “Uncle Special.” They begin by chatting about Wrighty’s coat, which was memed after the weekend’s FA Cup coverage (01:03), then move on to discuss Musa’s new book, In the End It Was All About Love (03:12). They reflect on living in Berlin, the parallels in their respective careers, the role of sacrifice, and whether they would have changed anything on their journeys (10:23). They also cover Manchester United’s statement win over Liverpool (17:09), Jesse Lingard’s imminent departure (22:58), Frank Lampard leaving Chelsea (28:27), flowers for Steph Houghton following her 150th Barclays FAWSL appearance (38:38), and the arrival of Martin Odegaard to Arsenal (42:41).
