Hamilton is F1 champion, Phil Hughes, and Liverpool’s problems

25th November 2014

Simon was joined by Nick, Joseph and Jack for this Tuesday’s URN Sport. They could only begin with one story: Lewis Hamilton’s successful final race to win this season’s F1 Championship. The guys also discussed which teams might challenge Mercedes next season.

The major news of the day was that Phil Hughes was in a critical condition after a bouncer had hit him on the head at Sydney Cricket Ground. The panel touched on this as well as Michael Vaughan’s proposal for an FA Cup-style Twenty20 competition that could pitch amateur clubs against first-class and minor county sides.

Next on the agenda was boxing, and Tony Bellew’s win by split decision against Nathan Cleverly at the weekend.

Finally, they debated Liverpool’s problems following their 3-1 defeat against Crystal Palace. The lads discussed the possibility of dropping Steven Gerrard or altering his position, as well as the future of Brendan Rodgers.

For all the latest international and national sports debate listen to URN Sport every Tuesday from 6-7pm.
