Wherein Our Heroes bask in the glory of several early-season Premier League matches. Spurs vanquish Crystal Palace with Harry Kane oddly stationed as a Number 10. Will the arrival of Christian Benteke herald a change in recent fortunes for The Eagles? Elsewhere, Burnley see off Liverpool with only 19% possession, Ronald Koeman earns his first victory as Everton manager, and Hull, with merely a baker’s dozen senior players in the squad, earn their second victory in as many matches. We are having Steve Bruce’s departure in the summer, and Michy Batshuayi’s treble tarantula earns Haircut of The Week. Also, our Canadian Women’s Team is saluted for another outstanding Olympics in Rio.
Wherein Our Heroes are joined by guests Joe and Greg to wax philosophical on the Premier League season to be. Together, we engage in the most profound punditry in the Northern Hemisphere, including but not limited to, our top 7/8 picks in the table, Pep Guardiola’s first season in England, where Leicester might finish, whether or not Paul Pogba is worth his transfer fee, and Big Sam’s propensity for steering England to glory. Also, we drink a LOT.
Wherein Our Heroes believe the Community Shield was more of the same from Manchester United and Leicester. José Mourinho picks up where he left off with Juan Mata, West Ham can’t give simple directions, and Jamie Vardy can’t care for four-legged friends (or can he?). Riyad Mahrez pays West London a visit, Kyle Lafferty pays for visiting his bookie, and our Canadian Women enjoy another milestone moment in Rio. Also, we aim to patent our new football matching app…stay tuned!
Wherein Our Heroes connect with fellow Albertans and soccer lovers, Jessica and Katie, of “For Kicks Podcast”. We delve into Canada’s Rio 2016 victory over Zimbabwe and discuss the Canadian Women’s Team in the group stages thus far. It is a special treat indeed. Check out “For Kicks Podcast” for more on the women’s game…Jessica and Katie are veritable fountains of knowledge, punditry, and wit.
Wherein Our Heroes encourage the denizens of Calgary to get out in droves and support Foothills FC in the USL PDL Final. Mark Clattenburg gets an early nod for worst tattoos of the year, Will Ferrell throws his hat in the ring for the Jamie Vardy biopic (long shot), and Zlatan quits Manchester United’s hotel. We are both having more CanCon in MLS. Also, Hull City’s Tigers, a veritable cat of only nine tails, get trolled by their own players. Come on you Hoops!
