Wherein Our Heroes examine the cost of pints and pies at each Premier League ground, and find most clubs are woke. Chelsea have no chill on opening day, while Manchester United are in beast mode. Sheffield United and Middlesbrough supporters leave us salty. Respeck #blessed
Wherein Our Heroes discuss potential preliminary transfer predictions, weigh in on the Diego Costa/ Antonio Conte saga, and award Michael Bradley the most aerodynamic Haircut of the Week in the history of Gafferdom (both for his coif and laser-like chip). We lament the occasional incursion of politics into sport, reminisce about the Drambuie Showcase Revue, and advise how Calgarians can get behind their Hoops, Foothills F.C. Also, Samuel Piette is apparently responsible for most of the attendees at the latest Canadian Men’s friendly in Montreal.
Wherein Our Heroes review the Canadian National Team rosters ahead of February’s big fixtures, Jordan Morris chooses Starbucks over Beck’s, and Football Leaks walks the line between transparency and “blackmail” (according to Doyen). Costa rankles Arsenal, Norwich and Liverpool forget how to defend, and Aguero sets a milestone. Also, our Joey Barton winner is pure Gold.
Wherein Our Heroes hope the MLS Cup runneth over, a cast is discussed for Jamie Vardy’s life on celluloid, Manchester United continue to bore, Arsenal’s infirmary continues to burst at the seams, and we are not having Diego Costa’s pathetic attempt at insubordination. Also, Leeds fans are collectively awarded for their trouble obeying the law.
Wherein Our Heroes get in touch with their Canuck roots, provide a polite round up of Canadian MLS action, and cover the Premier League like a good toque when yer out playin’ shinny. Also, Costa flattens Koscielny like a beaver tail, Winston Reid stands firm like a lodgepole pine, and Anthony Martial rocks Southampton like The Young Gaffers rock a flannel shirt.
