Hani ran into Nicolas Anelka at the mall in Dubai once. 

Anelka was a ridiculous talent who burned a lot of bridges. He made a lot of headlines for incidents not related to his play: leaving Arsenal, the 2010 World Cup and the quenelle gesture.

There's so much to unpack here, but we try to peak into the complex mind of Anelka here - particularly concerning his desire to be adored. A common talking point on Anelka is that his career could have turned out different. Justin and Hani debate who is responsible for a respectable career that could have been legendary.

Hani also tells the story about meeting El Hadji Diouf at a club in Dubai. It's a better story than his Anelka one, anyway.

We also chat to James Harkin of the QI spin-off podcast No Such Thing As A Fish, who tells us some of his favourite football facts. 

We also have our Ladbrokes Bet of the Week and we ask: which sports star, if they lived up to their name, would be the greatest menace to society?
