- The versatility of all of the Quinta del Buitre players
- Weird things from 80s broadcast

- Emilio Butragueño’s genius with and without the ball
- You can’t understand the greatness of players through numbers alone (duh — but a deeper discussion)
- Gallego was a really good defensive midfielder
- Chendo’s versatility and ability to cover lots of ground
- Michel’s line-breaking ability
- Rapid fire:
- Championship on the line, who do you choose to take your free-kick?
