Wherein Our Heroes shamelessly attempt to piggyback on Taylor Swift’s recent album announcement. Bad MLS Comics shares his most interesting stadium nosh while Brendan asks us to weigh in on the recent lawsuit filed by Barcelona against Neymar. A travelling Walsall supporter receives a surprise upon arrival to his hotel before the match versus Pompey, while Nicolai Müller’s knee buckles under the weight of a goal celebration in Germany. The Aaron Ramsey Curse strikes again, Wayne Rooney retires from international duty, and Jason recounts a world-class experience at a recent Vancouver Whitecaps match.
Wherein Our Heroes pay respects to late Barcelona and Ajax legend, modern philosopher, proponent of Total Football, ‘Haircut of The Century’ holder, Polydor recording artist, and third footballer to have an asteroid named after him – Johan Cruyff. When not trolling Yaya and Balotelli, Cabinteely F.C. attempt to vanquish Glastonbury headliners, Muse, in an upcoming friendly. Canada struggles against Mexico in front of a record crowd, England come back to beat Germany in Berlin, and two Aston Villa players take an ill-timed holiday. Also, Raheem Sterling can’t find any takers for his Franken-mansion.
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.
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 elaborate on Lewandowski’s quint trick, Sir Alex Ferguson’s world beaters, Emmanuel Adebayor’s clubless woes, Brendan Rodgers’ lifeline (aka Daniel Sturridge), José Mourinho’s straight dope, James Milner’s Yorkshire puddings, Rudy Gestede’s head, Romelu Lukaku’s brace, Catalan tax evasion, Ligue 1 effigies, Memphis Depay’s golden grill, Morgan Schneiderlin’s ESL tips, and search engine optimization. Also, Cyle Larin is invited out for a rip and Adam and Jason do their best Harry ’Michael’ Kane impressions.
