    SPS Copa America Edition - Delayed & Damaged - Episode 477

    “Racismo! Delays! Danger! Duolingo! Shakira! Goat Ankles! Retirements!”

    That was a brief, yet inexhaustive list of topics Tosin and Deen discussed instead of the football that happened between the best national football team in the world and (sadly) Colombia.

    SPS Euros Edition - Ozempic Wesley Sneijder - Episode 475

    So your new European Champions are Spain. Yay!

    But SPS doesn’t really care about that all that since England has the “stars”. That might make us just as bad as Southgate & the English media.

    That said, join Tosin, Coach & Deen for the SPS review the final, alongside more philosophical thoughts on what we learned from Euro 2024.

A show for us

Finally a soccer show that feels like it was made for us, and if you don’t know who is is this sow was not made for you. This is funny and not too serious but never unserious.

The man without plans ,

Very Unserious (In a good way)

As a Cameroonian, it's very rare that a Nigerian makes me laugh. SPS covers the best (LFC) and worst (ManU) of football with jokes galore.

Highly recommend for any fan of the sport soon to be called Soccer. USA...USA‼️

ALL BILLIONS ,

Funniest dude on Twitter and the Podcast!

100% recommended
