Liverpool, Neymar, Mr Blobby and faking death – Football Weekly Extra | Football Liverpool, Neymar, Mr Blobby and faking death – Football Weekly Extra | Football

We look back at the last few days of football, starting with Liverpool’s Champions League defeat at PSG, which leaves them in danger of crashing out of the competition they made it to the final of just six months ago. We ask what more Marco Verratti could have done to get himself sent off and whether it’s time to judge Neymar on his own merits, rather than the circus surrounding him.

We cover Tottenham’s 1-0 win over Internazionale, which gives them the edge in Group B, and both Manchester clubs qualifying for the last 16 – neither with any fanfare on a mixed night.

There was a Carabao Cup match on Tuesday – no, seriously! After rounding up that and the Football League , we look ahead to this weekend’s Premier League fixtures, workshop a Harry Redknapp/Noel Edmonds managerial double-act and wonder whether a football match is ever important enough to fake a death to avoid.

Back on Monday!
