After discussing the quest for the best, the podcast fixes the broken criteria for Young Player awards in an attempt to find the brightest U21 talent in the English top-flight this season.

Also, a look back on the players that have let us down in 2018/19 as we dig up some very bold pre-season predictions and cry about injuries and some truly baffling defending.
