Ian is joined by Musa Okwonga this week for an Uncle Special. They begin, as only uncles can, by chatting about how people dressed back in the day and used to unleash the drip (01:29). They next give flowers to Imanol Alguacil, who—having supported and played for Real Sociedad—guided the club to its first trophy in 34 years (07:27) and discuss winning as a fan and the unrehearsed celebrations it creates. Wrighty then shares his theory on the involvement of Ronaldo and Portugal’s chances at the 2022 World Cup (19:11), and finally, with the return of European competition, what it’s like to transition back into playing in Europe at this stage of the season (29:23).
