Sound Of Football Podcast 291 - With intent

Controversial actions and decisions are far from uncommon in football. The match between Manchester United and Bournemouth last weekend had more than usual. Many of the incidents, including the two most controversial, were seemingly missed by the referee but were soon leapt upon by commentators.

United's Zlatan Ibrahimovic and the Cherries' Tyrone Mings got embroiled in two incidents that saw the former having his head trodden on and the latter receiving an elbow in the face. On Twitter, Gary Neville was "100%" certain that Mings deliberately stamped on Zlatan's head. Jamie Carragher thought he could divine the inner workings of Mings' psyche by watching what he did immediately after the event. There was also a handball that led to a penalty, another incident where the referee was called upon to decide whether the offence was the intention of the player involved.

This week, Graham, Terry and Jan each analyse the flashpoints of the match. Can they reach a consensus? Will they be able to look into the souls of the individuals concerned to work out what their true intentions really were?
