Andy, Paul and Lyndon discuss the FA Cup replay victory over Crystal Palace, the draw with Aston Villa and the nature of the performances. They talk about the increasing maturity of Amadou Onana, and ponder how Sean Dyche can compensate for the absence of Abdoulaye Doucouré and how the team generally create more chances in front of goal.

They then move on to the unavoidable – Everton being referred to an independent commission over alleged PSR breaches for a second time – and touch on the ongoing takeover saga involving 777 Partners.

Finally, they pick their favourite direct free-kick goals and pay tribute to John Hurst who passed away at the age of 76.

It unfortunately stops when we go into administration in possibly mid-late February. Due to 777 Partners not being allowed to take us over, the Premier League refusing to accept them as new owners, on the basis they can't prove they have the cash to run a Premier League club.

777 Partners will then ask for their £120M loan to be repaid in full, pronto, and Moshiri will put us into admistration rather than fork out for this loan, and unwilling to continue to fund the stadium requirement of £20M a month over next 10 months or so.

Do we take a risk and not do anything or do we take part in an asset-stripping exercise where we lose Onana, Branthwaite, and Pickford for £100M, paid upfront (which it won't be). This will see us through to May.

Never mind the possible 10 points plus 10 points plus the 9 points for going to administration.

A truly disastrous scenario for our future.

I have posted this comment repeatedly; if I am wrong then I'll happily be corrected and learn.

This scenario is the least beneficial outcome for Moshiri who has the most financially to lose from administration.

It would just not make sense for him to do this in the short term.

It only makes if he has run out of liquid assets.

Great pod.

The off-the-field stuff is so depressing. But I want to call out the fight of the players, particularly versus Villa. Their strength has been immense.
