Gautam Viswanathan

Gautam Viswanathan has a very simple dream: he wants to commentate at the finals of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. A die hard football fan, Gautam's love for the game borders on the fanatical. Give him a choice between an all-expenses paid trip to Europe and Champions League final tickets and he will choose the latter without the slightest flicker of hesitation.

Were Swansea right to sack Michael Laudrup?
