Being Champions Ain't Easy

This week on the SCOUTED Weekly: Steve Ganavas and Joe Donnohue join us to talk the differing fortunes of two champions elect: Bayer Leverkusen and Girona.

We also run the rule over the seasons of Manchester United and Chelsea, taking a closer look at the conflicting fortunes of Kobbie Mainoo and Mauricio Pochettino, while Joe gives us some insight into the fantastic seasons being enjoyed by a trio of Leeds United youngsters: Archie Gray, Crysencio Summerville, and Georginio Rutter.

Next, Steve and Joe run the rule over the two big confederation finals from the weekend in Asia and Africa, with special mentions for Ivory Coast’s Sebastian Haller, Simon Adingra, and Qatar’s Akram Afif.

Once again, we finish with our homegrown game-show Handbook History, where we our guests are tasked with a ‘Who Am I?’ of players we have profiled over the last decade based on their career path and achievements. It’s a lot of fun. Come join us.
