In todays edition of The Game Gregor Robertson is joined by Tony Cascarino, Tom Roddy and Alyson Rudd. No surprise that Gregor starts with a look back at Scotland’s qualification for next years Euros, their second in succession. While there were cheers in Scotland, there were boos at Wembley for  Jordan Henderson. Were they justified? No boos in Cardiff as Wales reignited their qualification hopes.

After the break Matt Lawton joins to discuss the story unfolding at Manchester Utd as Sir Jim Ratcliffe now looks set to buy the club, in stages, after the Qatar bidders withdrew. Will it change things at Man Utd?

Finally, after Alyson Rudd met her footballing hero, Jari Litmanen,  should you ever meet you heroes?  



Michael Grant reviews Scotland’s qualification for the Euros

Steve Clarke achievement. Fans going to the final

New culture at Hampden and Scotland now.


Henderson was booed at Wembley.

Southgate disappointing to say he didn’t understand.

Henderson coming to the end of his career, or one more tournament.

Confused at being booed.

Little sympathy.   


Qualification back in their hands Harry Wilson coming good.

Rob page is safe, for now

First big result post Gareth Bale.

Man Utd

Matt Lawton joins to discuss the moves taking place in the race to own Man Utd. Qatar’s pull out, which leaves the way clear for Jim Ratcliffe to take a sizable percentage ownership in the club.

This is the first stage of a full takeover, it will not be part measure. Jim Ratcliffe will be the full owner, this is just the way the deal has to be structured.

The mechanics of how Man Utd were put up for sale, what/who they wanted and how it panned out.

Is the gloom around old Trafford to lift?

What do we know about Ineos. What is their track record in cycling and at French ligue 1 side Nice.

Lot of things to fix at Man Utd. Injury recurrence, recruitment, contracts…general decision making


Alyson Rudd has final met and interviewed her hero, Jari Litmanen. Seems she is in love with him.

Should you meet your heroes? Was it worth meeting him?

He was a nice man, humble, he has heroes to.

Sidcup high street and Tony met Steve Harley…oh dear.

Ton has no heroes. Gregor …Dani Alves and Jon Collins.
