We heard tributes coming from Simon Jordan, legendary football manager Roy Hodgson and iconic commentator John Motson who all spoke incredibly highly of MBE George Cohen. We continued the podcast with Ray Parlour and Darren Bent who both agreed that Liverpool reaching top four this season is a MUST for Jurgen Klopp's men! Neil Warnock believes the second half of this Premier League season should be fiery due to the World Cup interruption and players being more alert. Simon Jordan gave his reaction to Pep Guardiola's recent press conference and believes Guardiola WILL win the Champions League with Man City during his spell in charge.
