2. A United fan’s brutal assessment of the problems within the club (3:25)

3. Are table-toppers Everton the real deal? (7:35)

4. Why are Singaporeans flouting the ‘rule of five’ at public sports facilities such as basketball and street soccer courts? (8:55)

5. Live sport set to return to Singapore for the first time since circuit breaker measures (11:28)
