Resident JOE sports heads Adrian Collins, Cononr Heneghan and Sean Nolan discuss the big footballing stories of the last few days, in a week where things are beginning to look a bit more bleak for David Moyes. Or are they? The transfer window might be yielding a late Christmas present for the fans at Old Trafford, and with that subject Mata in mind, the lads discuss whether or not that's the right move for both parties.
Apart from that, the panel also turn their attention to Mo Salah, who looks to be headed to Chelsea, even though Liverpool almost had him within their grasp. There's talk of Jerome Champagne too, who announced his intentions to run for the presidency of FIFA this week, although only if Blatter doesn't. The lads try to outline a bit about him, and where he's targeting for change in the FIFA regime.
Finally, there's been plenty happening in Spain this week as Barcelona president Sandro Rosell was forced to quit after being implicated in some possibly shady dealings regarding the 'Operación Neymar'. There's possible implications both for the club and for football in general with the various clauses and add-ons to his contract, so the lads try to break it down to see what it's all about.
