The Football Spin on Jordan Pickford’s crossbar challenge, Ireland’s road to Euro 2020 glory and Mourinho’s long march to the Old Trafford exit


Jordan Pickford

Jordan Pickford’s moment of madness decided the Merseyside derby.

What went through Pickford’s mind at that moment is hard to say, but it was one of the most dramatic conclusions to a Merseyside derby since Gary McAllister’s injury-time free kick in 2001.

Everton failed to win at Anfield again and are still looking for a win there this century, while Liverpool stayed in touch with Manchester City thanks to Divock Origi’s goal.

On The Football Spin, Rob Redmond and Dion Fanning joined Paddy McKenna to discuss Pickford’s error and Liverpool’s title challenge which continues despite the poor form of a number of key players.

Rob explains how Ireland can get to the play-offs for the European Championships without winning another game for a year, while Nooruddean Choudry discusses the dismalism on offer at Manchester United and why, no matter what happens, it looks as if nothing will be done.
