My name’s Damon and I’m based in Japan, and it’s been great weather – cool, autumnal weather with lovely blue skies. The summer heat is well and truly gone!

As for football, well, I watched a couple of Champions League games mid-week, including the Liverpool vs Genk game, and before that I saw Manchester United lose to Bournemouth and Liverpool snatch a victory away at Aston Villa with two late late goals last weekend. But of course, the highlight for me as a Liverpool fan was watching The Reds shred Manchester City’s defence and beat them 3-1 on Sunday. Wow!

Line up

And that will bring us to the end of the show and our last section, predictions.
