Wherein Our Heroes lament Canada’s ineptitude at painting lines on football pitches, get excited for BBC’s forthcoming behind-the-scenes look at the goings-on at Watford F.C., and ridicule Cristiano Ronaldo’s feeble attempt at masquerade during a recent visit to Disneyland Paris. Two students spend a lovely evening camped out in the loo at Old Trafford, Firmino’s haircut gets all the praise, and football-related arrests are on the rise. We also commend our Japanese hosts for providing us a little taste of home when we traversed The Land of the Rising Sun…potato salad. Ride it!
Wherein Our Heroes make your ears feel just right through sweet podcast poetry. FIFA opens disciplinary action against the FA’s of England and Scotland for donning “political” symbols, while the World Football Museum in Zürich struggles for attendees. Super sub Olivier Giroud’s mane finally gets the recognition it deserves, Yaya Touré bags a brace for Manchester City after months away from the pitch, and a trifecta of England players get up to no good during the International Break. Also, we gear up for the MLS Conference Finals. Awe yeahhhhhhhh…
Wherein Our Heroes engage in copious amounts of Irreverence: Anthony Stokes garners an illustrious Joey Barton Award for pleading guilty to assaulting an Elvis impersonator, Usain Bolt decides to train with Borussia Dortmund, Víctor Valdés is praised for his moxie for taking on Tinder, Cristiano Ronaldo sports faux specs and provokes the ire of his club, and four Manchester United rebels earn Haircut of the Week for ensuring their tufts are in order before the big match. Also, we offer a musical surprise, Adam gets a NES Classic, and The Gaffers add to their ever-growing list of (empty?) promises.
Wherein Our Heroes bask in the glory of having a Canadian MLS team guaranteed a spot in the MLS Cup Final. We preview both Conference Finals, are not having Giovinco’s snub for league MVP, and extol both Liverpool and Chelsea for their deserved spots at the top of the Premier League table. Long-time listeners Brendan and Luke weigh in on recent topics and we salute Philippe Coutinho’s well-groomed dome in Haircut of the Week. Also, we wish Wayne Bridge good luck in his latest foray in the jungles of Australia and, keeping with tradition, we spoil Westworld’s most popular fan theory.
Wherein Our Heroes are haunted by Manchester United’s zombie-like ineptitude in front of goal, some West Ham supporters make our skin crawl, and FIFA’s cobbled-together attempt at rebranding their year-end awards is like Dr. Frankenstein’s ghoulish creation. The MLS playoffs are in full swing, with away sides in the first leg looking like lifeless corpses. Also, Adam spoils all of your favourite movies and TV shows…the horror!
