What is happening at Derby County? The Rams are bottom of the Championship after going into administration. Kieran Maguire from the Price of Football podcast illuminates us. Will they survive, and how many clubs are in a similarly dicey situation?
We also take a look at the third-round action in the Carabao Cup. David Moyes and West Ham finally won at Old Trafford, while Chelsea and Spurs came through penalty shootouts and Eddie Nketiah scored a lovely goal for Arsenal against AFC Wimbledon.
Plus: Safe standing in the Premier League, we look ahead to the weekend’s games, discuss the art of coin tossing, and footballers who don’t like football.
