    #244! Today's pod is longer than normal because there's so much great stuff to talk about. Even before that, we begin with 'Rona positivity that the media isn't covering.

We also wax lyrical about Kai Havertz at Bayer Leverkusen as he continues to roll. And we finish the front four with La Liga's return and their different approach, similar to a summer tournament.
    Next, we play buy or sell and debate Mauricio Pochettino going to a non Big 6 club next, N'Golo Kante potentially missing the rest of the season for Chelsea, a former ref's claims about referee support for Real Madrid and Barcelona, and Alejandro Bedoya's "luxurious prison" comments about MLS in Orlando.

Daniel of DC ,

My go-to premier league catch up

This show really breaks down the major talking points in the EPL and Champions League in a fun way. There aren’t a lot of EPL fans where I live so this really helps me stay on top of it. Good stuff.

OPINIONS CAN'T BE WRONG!

Drew isn't afraid to talk about controversial topics in today's soccer world, which most podcast stay away from. The one thing I really enjoy is Drew is giving HIS opinion, it doesn't mean it's right or wrong, its HIS OPNION. Drew has very good knowledge of the Premier League so, it's no wonder he was the 2019 Who Kicked The Corner Flag Podcaster Cup Champion!
