This week’s posts selected by Chris Rowland and Daniel Rhodes. This gives you some idea of the range of debate on the site and the type of articles published. If you fancy being part of it, there’s a ‘Subscribe’ tab at the top of the page. 1 – Mark Cohen arguing why Dele Alli would be an ideal r...
