Max Rushden completes his 3-show stint at the helm of Football Weekly, and heâ€™s got Jonathan Wilson, Paul MacInnes and Jabob Steinberg for company.
We begin by discussing the impressive starts to the Premier League season made by the three promoted clubs, Middlesbrough, Burnley and Hull - and the familiar sense of slog and struggle at Sunderland.
Next, we turn our attention Manchester, where City and United continue to set the pace. As if to confirm that Mancunia is the centre of the footballing universe, weâ€™ll be doing our first Football Weekly Live of the season up there on Friday 2 September. Tickets still available, dontcha know.
Finally, we wonder what was in the water in Italy and Spain after La Liga and Serie A went goal crazy in their opening round of fixtures.
Jimboâ€™s back on Thursday. Make sure you give Max a nice send-off...
