The Gaffers would like to congratulate fellow Mo’ Bro, Fighting Chicken footballer, and all-around great dude Lev (pictured right) for winning our recent E-mail Contest. For submitting his thoughtful questions about Mourinho’s predicament at Chelsea, Lev is now entitled to:
One six-pack of beer (*brand and style must be of The Gaffers’ choosing, to be shared equally among the winner and The Gaffers)
A meet and greet with The Gaffers (*must be hosted at the winner’s abode)
One meal to be consumed together (*must be cooked/procured by the winner)
Wherein Our Heroes are joined by yet another co-host, Fearghal. The fellas play Mourinho for a day, Liverpool and Spurs run rampant, and it’s a nightmare weekend for The Gunners. Toby Alderweireld’s penchant for the wet-hair look helps him rise above, the Los Blancos faithful jeer the fudge out of their star (who wishes to “retire with dignity”), and the MLS may have been underestimated by Stevie and Francis. Also, we make the case to be hired as scribes for the best buddy dramedy to hit the UK airwaves in decades.
It’s been such a heavy week in so many places. Paris. Lebanon. Baghdad. Syria. The list is, sadly, far too long. While The Gaffers don’t like to get too embroiled in rhetoric, this photo of the England and France players standing together, and the outpouring from the fans at Wembley recently, is reflective of what the world needs more of right now.
Unity. Togetherness. Be safe, wherever you may find yourself.
Wherein Our Heroes are joined by their first-ever guest host, who struggles with The Gaffers’ creed. Formations are obsessed over, Euro 2016 dark horses are released from their barns, and the lads take a pretend gamble on Ronaldinho. Dimitri Payet, Olivier Giroud, and Christian Eriksen are lauded for their performances this season, while Sunderland and Villa are in tough. Also, Brendan is subjected to the dreaded Lightning Round of Awesomeness.
Our most recent “Moustache of the Week” winner. Is this heroic outlaw Robin Hood? Swashbuckling thespian Errol Flynn? MLS Humanitarian of the Year nominee, NYCFC’s own Jeb Brovsky? Regardless, that upper lipholstery is some kinda wonderful…
Wherever you may be and whether you are recognizing Remembrance Day, Veterans Day, or Armistice Day, the Gaffers hope you have found or will find a moment to reflect and honour the brave men and women who have served and continue to serve us. Lest we forget…
Wherein Our Heroes adjudge themselves to be desolate after the last round of the MLS playoffs. Jamie Vardy is the slyest of Foxes (not to be Ruud), Brendan Rodgers hops The Tube, and Rooney’s slaps are better than his finishing. Also, Stoic Loic Remy receives a huzzah for not going to ground, Jeb Brovsky rocks a modern-day Errol Flynn look, and a Costa Rican referee gets the heave-ho from CONCACAF. Jason recounts his recent experience in Vancouver, and The Gaffers weigh in on MLS and BPL before the international break.
Wherein Our Heroes get in touch with their inner Liza Minnelli, belt out Aaron Neville’s greatest hits in Spanish and dip into the mail bag to answer your burning questions. Chelsea’s woes are innumerable, Barcelona’s players are left with huevos on their face, and Rémi is the new Garde. Also, Sasha brings the stasha, sacking Kreis ain’t nice, and the Impact drive all the girls crazy.
