Hello Rank Squad!
It’s a special episode today – with our beloved Transfer Guru absent we are joined by long-term friend of the pod and Tifo Football star Jon Mackenzie, to talk through five deals which have maybe flown under the radar of most football fans. They’re all under the age of 21, they all cost a fair bit of money, and they all add something new to their respective clubs.
With the Premier League doing most of the big business in this window, it remains heavily stacked in favour of the PL, but perhaps off-piste from the names you’ve heard thrown around a lot this window. We talk Jhon Duran to Aston Villa, Victor Kristiansen to Leicester City, Danilo to Nottingham Forest, Dango Ouattara to Bournemouth and Georginio Rutter to Leeds United and discuss how they can affect the seasons of their respective clubs.
There’s a quick Things We Love, where there’s a thank you to everyone who watched our documentary (if you haven’t, we’d love if you smashed this link to take a look), a discussion of Xabi Alonso’s slick Bayer Leverkusen, and some chat on high-flying, free-scoring Atalanta as well. Dean has a brief cameo to bring you Melon and Shoutout of the Week, and Sam’s Gibberish revolves around 90’s football memorabilia that gave him a big nostalgia trip this weekend.
