The season is in full swing and it's time to look at some of the names set to be the new Frenkie de Jong, Joao Felix or Jadon Sancho. Sam Tighe (@brsamtighe) and Dean Jones (@deanjonesbr) join host Jack Collins (@jjwc) to take a look at the players under 20 who are set to have a breakout season in 2019/20 (19:22), including Chelsea's Reece James (20:37), Salzburg's Dominik Szoboszlai (25:09), Ajax's Sergino Dest (29:33); Stade Rennais' Eduardo Camavinga (33:52) and Barcelona's Ansu Fati (37:35). Hot Takes this week involve a deep discussion on whether Arsenal fans are overreacting and if they're going to be alright under Emery after all (04:20); some insight from Dean on Real Madrid's transfer targets next season (12:10); and a look at why Wolves are underperforming in the Premier League so far this campaign (15:02). This week's Melon of the Week is a certain Manchester City defender... (02:10) Roulette asks whether we'd rather have a cup of tea with Raheem Sterling or a cup of coffee with Christian Pulisic (49:35); and whether we'd value wages or playing time more as a professional footballer (48:13); before Sam rounds things off by ranking the most pointless things you learned at school in this week's nonsense rankings (51:08).
