A topsy-turvy title race and the John Delaney saga – Football Weekly

John Delaney saga

Join the conversation on Facebook, Twitter and email.

We look back at the weekend of football just gone, starting with Liverpool’s 2-0 win over Chelsea which sent them back to the top of the Premier League, having been knocked off it two hours earlier by Manchester City.

From the top of the league to the bottom: we take a look at Tuesday’s crunch match between Brighton and Cardiff, in light of their results this weekend.

We round up the rest of the Premier League, before looking at the movers and shakers in the Football League, women’s football and the cup action north of the border.

We speak to Sid Lowe about the Seville derby and Barcelona’s draw away at La Liga’s bottom side, while Archie Rhind-Tutt and Paolo Bandini bring us up to date on the Bundesliga and Serie A respectively, before Barry brings us the latest from the FAI/John Delaney saga and his worst regional Irish accents.

Back on Thursday! And hopefully with comments.

PS: we have a new show, at EartH in Hackney! On 10 May, join Max, Barry, Jonathan Wilson and Lars Sivertsen on the eve of the final weekend of the Premier League season. For more info and tickets, click here
