The pod is back to make some sense of the swirling rumour mill around the CFA’s 55-man U25 training camp which kicks off this week. Just whose idea was this – are there any positives, what is the worst part of this staggeringly bad idea, and is this a prelude to national development teams in the league? So many questions, so little clarity – luckily we have two seasoned CFA-watchers on hand to provide a bit of background and insight. With new developments on an almost daily basis in this story, where might things go next?
We wrap up with an interview with WEF’s Donald Ross touching on Guangzhou R&F and historical China sides worth checking out, and their place in the pantheon. Despite all the madness, the pod will be back to focus on more football-related matters next week, turning our eyes to the latest in the title and relegation fights and a couple more managers losing their jobs.
