Football didn't come home, but it's back with the transfer window about to shut and the charity shield on it's way to it's new home at the Etihad. Across the City of Manchester, Jose is staying true to form and looks like he's hit the self destruct button. And as technology continues to integrate with football, the MLS skip the referees and mic up the players... On The Left Side is written and produced by Ant McGinley and Jim Salveson.

7/17/2018
More
A pitch invasion, an own goal, teenage wonderkid, dodgy VAR decision, goalkeeping howler AND a decent performance from Paul Pogba - the final match of this World Cup had a whole bunch of things you rarely see, all in 90 minutes. Plus there was a thunderstorm and a world leader trying to Dab. Speaking of which, Gary Neville lays down the law to the politicians and doesn't hold back. And while all the golden things are being dished out, we present the most prized award we can bestow - The...

We're all doomed. The universe has aligned events in such a way that by the time the big match is over we'll all look like we used to be in Eastenders. In 1996. And football fever has spread across every facet of society, including the politicians in the Houses of Parliament. But at this rate, the next Prime Minister is likely to be Gareth Southgate.

Week 2 of the World Cup and strangely Russia are looking favourites to go all the way as all the other big boys are struggling. Speaking of big boys, somebody needs to have a word with Phil Neville about his table manners on TV. We have the latest on the Antoine Greizman saga, which actually finally gives us an answer. Gareth Southgate has a mystery injury, but it's not as mysterious as how Paul Merson sees the world, and will we be replacing the three lions logo with three unicorns? Once...
