Bermuda isn't a nation that gets much attention when it comes to world football.

Manchester City cult hero Shaun Goater is one product of the Atlantic island. Our past Team 33 interviewee Clyde Best of West Ham fame is another.

But this week's Team 33 saw us shine the spotlight on one Bermudan club: Flanagan's Onions.

It's a name that definitely stood out to us in the office when we came across it. Certainly, it's one of the most unique football club names in the world.

Well, people say it's a small world and that was proven on the show. One of my Off The Ball colleagues Stephen Doyle has a childhood friend who lined out for Flanagan's Onions.

So this week, Sam O'Shaughnessy joined me to talk about that experience of how he ended up playing for the little known Bermudan club.

It was also a very busy week in the Premier League and beyond. So plenty for Joe, Derek, Killian, Cian, Jonathan, Enda and I to get stuck into.

We touched on Sarri vs Kepa and Brendan Rodgers' decision to swap Celtic life for Leicester City.

But we also went on an unexpected tangent: an argument between a few of the lads about Alex Ferguson's managerial ability! You can listen to that on the podcast player above, 30 minutes in.
