On this episode, Kiyan Sobhani flew solo (Diego was ill, and to make up for it, we'll be churning out a bonus mid-week pod on Thursday) to break down a crazy weekend in La Liga and answer questions from fans. Topics discussed:

- Fitting in as a Madridista at the Bernabeu

- Bakambu's (non-fluke, red-hot) start to La Liga

- La Liga's most disappointing players until now

- How Isco effects Asensio's performance

- The three relegation candidates

- Parallels between Betis this season and Las Palmas last season

- Fede Valverde starting for Depor

- What position are Valencia destined for?

- Betis - Valencia: Sanabria / Sergio Leon starting together, Guardado in a deeper role, bad refereeing, and King Kondogbia

- Girona - Villareal / Barca - Atleti / Las Palmas - Celta / Alaves - Sociedad / Bilbao - Sevilla / Eibar - Depor

- And somehow, a ton more
