Wherein Our Heroes put to bed our infatuation with Stranger Things 2, once and for all. Toronto FC bid to become the first MLS franchise to win the domestic treble, but don’t look all too convincing leading up to the MLS Cup Final. Wayne Rooney scores a cracker from half, Fellaini and Rüdiger suffer from boot problems (with differing attitudes), and Ronaldo gets the bust his handsomeness deserves. Also, inspired by Gareth Bale, we chat about our hypothetical preferred wedding entertainment.
Wherein Our Heroes are joined by Paulie, better known as Bad MLS Comics. Collectively, we discuss Paulie’s witty artwork, barn quilts and Canadian pop culture. Also, Wayne Rooney begins his community service at a local garden centre. Mostly, we lament the assured absence of the United States at the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
Wherein Our Heroes reconvene with a vengeance after a month-long hiatus. We respond to our listeners’ requests to weigh in on both the Red Green Show and the summer transfer market. Toronto FC sits on the edge of glory, Lukaku asks Manchester United supporters to stop singing about his member, and Rio Ferdinand continues to take steps to become the world’s next pugilism specialist. Also, Neymar and Cavani seem to have worked it out, for now. Our Nickname For Areola Contest is now officially open!
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 are joined by Luke from Omaha to delve into the recent changes to Chinese Super League rules regarding foreign players. Dimitri Payet is ostracized at West Ham and must now create a splinter WhatsApp Group, Wayne Rooney is given kudos for a cracker of a milestone, and Spurs rally to steal a point against Manchester City. Also, we share our idiosyncrasies in light of Ashley Young’s recent revelation…the lad’s got some straight up wacked eating habits.
Wherein Our Heroes share their knowledge of Canadian civic nomenclature, Team Canada fail to qualify for the “Hex”, and our dreams of seeing the Maple Leaf at a FIFA World Cup must wait another several years. We are havin’ Megan Rapinoe’s right to take a knee during the Star Spangled Banner, Leicester players choose to differentiate their four-wheeled gifts, and England’s players need a weekend at a Tony Robbins symposium – Big Sam clearly needs more time. Also, we offer a post-mortem on the Bachelor in Paradise finale.
Wherein Our Heroes are joined by Brendan, Wielder of The Whistle of Never-Ending Substitutions, to discuss prognostications and predictions for Groups A, B, and C. We think France could be magnifique in front of their home supporters, wonder if Wayne Rooney will spell doom for England’s attacking three, and feel Thomas Müller is a candidate for das Golden Boot. The new tournament format is titillating, Wales may surprise, and the Swiss likely won’t miss. Also, Mario Gómez and his slick locks may just prove decisive for Germany.
Wherein Our Heroes roll up their sleeves, pull on their raw Japanese selvedge denim, straighten their bow ties, and debate the efficacy of the Trequartista. Zlatan drops knowledge bombs, Adidas gets all snarky about Manchester United’s style, and we name the definitive “Hipster Starting XI”. Also, Benitez gets sacked, Vardy puts his name in lights, and poor Seamus drinks his own urine – we hear it tastes just like PBR. Oh, and we review some organic, fair-trade, artisanal matches.
Wherein Our Heroes are joined by yet another co-host, Fearghal. The fellas play Mourinho for a day, Liverpool and Spurs run rampant, and it’s a nightmare weekend for The Gunners. Toby Alderweireld’s penchant for the wet-hair look helps him rise above, the Los Blancos faithful jeer the fudge out of their star (who wishes to “retire with dignity”), and the MLS may have been underestimated by Stevie and Francis. Also, we make the case to be hired as scribes for the best buddy dramedy to hit the UK airwaves in decades.
Wherein Our Heroes lube themselves in irreverence and slide into goings on with Brendan Rodgers, José Mourinho, and Manchester United’s tactical woes. Arsenal won’t let their partner finish, Aguero bags five in one day, and the MLS nears its trembling climax. Also, John Terry nets a Tesco gift card for malodorous parking practices.
