EP-013 USMNT Review Champions League Returns

Warning, the guys may sing the Champions League theme song again in this broadcast.  Do not listen around dogs.  Champions League is back.  John and Jay can't hide their excitement.  Will the string of accurate predictions continue?

USMNT play the youth, well kind of.  The anticipation of an international friendly is always better than the match itself.

The guys lay out the week ahead in soccer.  There are four or five matches you must watch, and Jay even has a trick to watch the best match of the week for free.

No employees at FUBO.tv were harmed during the podcast.

Thank you for finding us and listening.  We hope to build a solid soccer community together with you based on fun, respect, and love for the beautiful game.

TG-001 Choosing Your English Premier League Club

Image
The English Premier League is quickly becoming the most popular soccer league on the planet.  In America we have more access to the EPL than any other league thanks to the NBC coverage.  With no geographic ties to the region, American fans have the opportunity to choose the Premier League club to support versus being born into a supporter group.

John and Jay take the time to help you figure out which English Premier League club is right for you.  Get out your pencil and paper, pour a drink or two, and let's have fun going over the pros and cons of each Premiere League club.  Well, maybe just the clubs the guys decided are worth your consideration:

 - Manchester City - Electric and Skilled
 - Manchester United - History and Success
 - Liverpool - Tradition and Heart
 - Tottenham Hotspur - Young and Cocky
 - Chelsea - Strong and Formidable
 - Arsenal - Beautiful and Substantive
 - Burnley - Industrious and Hard Nosed
 - Leicester City - Clever and Bold
 - Everton - Maligned and Prou…

EP-012 Champions League Review Preview and USMNT Friendly

Jay pays off the bet! Arsenal lost to Manchester City by a larger margin than Chelsea, so Jay had to don the Diego Costa Chelsea jersey.

We hate to say I told you so. But once again the guys were spot on with their Champions League predictions. Sevilla and Barcelona are through, and Jose Mourinho is still the greatest manager on the planet. Just ask him.

The guys run through the quarter final match ups in Champions League and Europa League. Jay schools us on Red Bull sponsorship versus content marketing, and what's all the fuss about RasenBallsSport Leipzig.

Finally, the youth gone wild! USMNT has been taken over by the talented young players. The guys preview a full day of International soccer friendlies including the United States Men's National Team.

No Rasenballsports or Red Bulls were injured during the production of this pocast.

USMT vs Paraguay Friendly - A New Chapter

Image
On March 27th in North Carolina at 7:30 EST on Fox Sports 1 the United State Men's National team will host South American rival Paraguay in a friendly match.  This match comes under a dark cloud still looming over United States soccer as World Cup 2018 will come and go without US participation.  It will take time for American Outlaws to cleanse the pallet of qualification failure, and the chaotic leadership the organization felt in the past year, but this friendly may be just what the doctor ordered.

The 22 man roster for the friendly was recently announced.  US Soccer is putting their youth front and center.  Of the 22 men called up, they represent 12 different leagues and 10 countries.  Only one third of the players are signed and playing in Major League Soccer.  5 of the players are currently signed and playing in the top leagues of Europe.  Despite the youth, this is a formidable and exciting roster presented for the mostly meaningless friendly.

This is exactly what the USMNT …

EP-010 VAR Man City Bet and Champions League

Whoa, episode 10.  John and Jay are going strong and having fun in the first double digit episode.

With Man City playing Arsenal and Chelsea in the same week, the guys made a bet based on the results.  The results were not pretty.  John won the bet, but who's pride was still intact?

VAR is coming to the World Cup.  The guys discuss the renaming of the FA Cup to the VAR Cup after the Tottenham vs Rochdale debacle in the snow. 

The Catalonia independence movement was discuss.  Political prisoners or not, the English Football Association has legitimate reasoning behind fining Pep Guardiola, despite his right to voice his support.
