Wherein Our Heroes rev up their engines and award a rare Joey Barton treble, Manuel Pellegrini fields a bunch of debutantes, and Chelsea shoves it into overdrive. Also, the Canadian women qualify for Rio 2016, Herculez Gomez thinks MLS clubs are like ‘metal under tension’ against Liga MX in the CONCACAF Champions League, and Maverick requests a fly-by.
While Gaffer Adam is still partial to the 1984 release “I’m Free (Heaven Helps the Man)”, nothing gets us straight out of The Comfort Zone, jumpin’ off the deck, and shovin’ into overdrive quite like this beast of a tune.
Wherein Our Heroes claim their place as 50 percent more influential than all other podcasts for the next thousand years. Columbus deals with mean tweets after unveiling their new kit, Massimo Cellino enters the annals of Joey Barton glory, and we are both havin’ recent goings-on with two Canadian MLS clubs. Also, Spurs and Arsenal score decisive victories and the two Manchester clubs fall further off the pace. Hah!
Wherein Our Heroes drop science on y’all, the Chinese Super League rings in the “Year of the Monkey” with a bang, the Jermaine Pennant and Jamie Vardy biopics gain traction, and John McGrane rrrolls up the rim on the Canadian Premier Soccer League. Also, we toast Marcel De Jong’s man bun, Canada and the USA get friendly and experimental, and Liverpool supporters stage a walk out amidst an exciting weekend in the Premier League.
While Maxime Crepeau was Man of The Match (without question) in last week’s friendly in Carson against the US of A, The Gaffers were in no doubt about who deserved Haircut of The Week. Kudos for some strong play and the man bun, Marcel de Jong!
Wherein Our Heroes gorge on Russian Pelmeni in the company of contest-winner and all-around great guy, Lev. Adebayor and Pato are among several notable transfers discussed, we are sort of havin’ public funding for new stadia, and we debate the impact of potential transfer bans at Real and Atlético Madrid. Also, in case we are ever called upon, we pledge national allegiances. Na zdoróvye!
