How did a quick free-kick turn into a week-long saga? Lee Mason is probably asking himself exactly that after a weird mix-up at the AMEX saw Lewis Dunk's 'goal' for Brighton disallowed after two peeps of a whistle and a VAR review. You had to be there.
In North London, Gareth Bale and Willian have started to show signs of life. The Welshman has developed a penchant for goals against weak sides and the Brazilian has become the master of the nearly-but-not-quite assist. Of the two, who is the least bad value for money?
Elsewhere in football, we take a trip to China to discuss the dissolution of champions Jiangsu before checking in on the Nou Camp where police raids have signalled another chapter to the madcap Barcagate affair.
We end part one pondering who'd win in a fight between Zlatan Ibrahimovic and LeBron James.
After the break, we head Stateside where golf's biggest names have been paying tribute to Tiger Woods who remains in hospital after last week's car crash. Is the sport ready for life without him?
In India, the Test match between India and England only lasted two days. Everyone but the players have blamed the pitch but surely a sticky wicket made it more fun?
Before we round things off, we discuss the abuse received by female sports reporters and whether horse racing can survive its latest scandal.
Enjoy the show!
