What are Burnley in different countries?

36m | May 13, 2021

It's the end of season for all our clubs, but it does allow us to ask, after a dramatic last game of the season, should Derby now be relegated? Do these two draws prove that the Championship the best league in the world? What's it like to be involved in last ditch escapes? And of course, Stephen can't resist bringing up Nigel Pepper's amazing free kick again.

In relegation news, sorry, no Big Sam this week, but we do discuss our other regular topic, Joey Barton.Is he shit? Is a second Bristol Rovers relegation worth a bet? We also look at Sunderland's wonderful unravelling in the famous Netflix documentary and Darron Gibson's mobile phone meltdown.

In League Two news, we cover Bolton's non-scoring promotion push, Bradford City's non-winning end of season, Salford's massive budget, wonder if Oldham Athletic is the most exciting team in the world, and find out in which socialist utopia the People's Pension Stadium is (it's Crawley).

Over here in the EU, we look at at the title race in Ligue Un, the perilous financial state of Real Madrid & Barcelona and ask if the Super League was an existential question, and translate "Burnley" into every league and find out it means shit everywhere.

And there is also talk of Phil Parkinson and National League finances and playoffs. Plus we end the episode with talk of managerial inspiration featuring Phil Neal at Bolton, Bryan Robson at Middlesborough and get some hands-on motivation from Ryan Giggs' stimulating teamtalk and Michael Owen's gripping helicopter tour of Dubai. Videos below.

Hope you enjoy it!
