The Preview Show: It makes me Schick

Shhh of course we knew that yellow cards don’t carry over to a penalty shootout! In Emi Martinez we trust.


Marcus, Luke, Andy and Pete catch up after last night’s European frolickings and then realise that the FA Cup has crept up on us. Alejandro Garnacho shows digital contrition ahead of Man United’s semi-final against Coventry City, Paul Scholes gets his old chap out, and players injure themselves trying to avoid a club crest but show a #touchofclass.


Plus, Portsmouth players swearing a lot on radio, Luke shares a message for the cowardly Vithushan Ehantharajah and Pete tells everyone how to use a knife and fork.
