Neil Atkinson and Gareth Roberts host an international break CityTalk show touching on a variety of subjects.

It starts and ends with talk of lower league and non-league football.

The end is about lovely possibilities but the start is talking to James Cave from Against League 3 about the Premier League seeking to enter B teams in the Johnstone Paint Trophy. There is this endlessly predatory circle around football at the moment and it is contrary to what the game should be about. James tells us more. 

In the middle we hear from Melissa Reddy, Steve Hothersall and Tony Barrett about Liverpool reducing their player turnover and the Christian Benteke situation.

We also have Neil Atkinson and John Gibbons talking to Chris Atkins about the rise of Chinese football and the willingness to buy big in the country's Super League.
