The right player at the right time?

On this week’s episode of Liquid Football, Faye Carruthers steps in for Kelly Kates and is joined by former Spurs midfielder Jamie O’Hara and former England international Lianne Sanderson.

After Manchester United’s impressive victory against Manchester City, the panel discuss Bruno Fernandes’ immediate impact at Old Trafford since his arrival from Sporting Lisbon.

With commanding performances and his now legendary “Shhhh’ towards Pep Guardiola, they look at the influence a new signing with a strong personality can have on the dressing room.

Lianne discusses being ostracised from the England set up after coming out in support of Eni Aluko, while she and Jamie reveal how little they each enjoyed the restrictive nature of international duty.

After Liverpool’s win over Bournemouth at the weekend, the panel discuss a difficult day for Cherries’ defender Jack Simpson, and what it’s like on the pitch when you just know that nothing is going your way.

Jose Mourinho made headlines after his criticism of Spurs’ midfielder Tanguy Ndombele over the weekend, something the panel deemed to be counterproductive and unfair.

Jamie recounts his own experience of a nightmare match, but one which was dealt with much differently by his then manager, Juande Ramos.
