INTVU: Trevor Sinclair, ex-West Ham, Man City & QPR player and Premier League pundit

About the Episode

Friend of the show Trevor Sinclair returns to the show as this week’s INTVU guest to chat about the upcoming Premier League season with James Sharman, Jimmy Brennan and Trevor’s former West Ham United teammate Craig Forrest. The former QPR, Manchester City and West Ham winger now works as a radio and TV pundit. Sinclair talks about working with Alan Brazil on TalkSPORT and covering his former clubs, and what it was like to party with Craig and DJ Mellow D, Danny Dichio, back in the 90s. Harry Redknapp’s prioritization of a strong change room chemistry over tactics gets a few laughs, as does Sinclair’s wish that Craig could ping balls down the pitch with the ease of Man City goalkeeper Ederson. 


As much as Craig and Trevor want West Ham to challenge for a Top 4 place this season, Trevor admits it is again a two horse title race between Man City and Liverpool, and that Antonio Conte’s Tottenham mount the next best challenge thanks to their summer business, adding Richardson to an attack that already includes “the two best forwards in the Premier League” in Harry Kane and Heung-min Son. Jimmy tries to bring up Nottingham Forest’s acquisition of Jesse Lingard several times. Manchester United would be better off letting Cristiano Ronaldo leave this summer. And the Lionesses’ triumph at the 2022 Women’s Euros has Sinclair excited for the future of the women’s game in England, though Sinclair explains that infrastructure and new pitches and facilities are as crucial to correcting the problem as changing the school curriculum.
