    Euro 2020: Scotland beats England 0-0, plus Sweden stays steady and a whopping total of one goal from open play on the day!

    Euro 2020: Scotland beats England 0-0, plus Sweden stays steady and a whopping total of one goal from open play on the day!

    Euro 2020 Day Eight! Ryan is broadcasting from His Angry Place, but is still joined by Graham, Joe, and Taylor to discuss all the action from England v Scotland, Sweden v Slovakia, and Croatia v Czech Republic. Graham does his best to contain his joyous glee while Ryan does his best not to mute Graham's mic.
    Plus, we answer questions like why were England so lethargic against a motivated Scotland, what does the result mean for England's confidence going forward, and which Scottish player's face will Graham be painting on the front of his house? After that, we spend some time with Sweden and Slovakia (will the Swedes slowly build their way through the knockout rounds?) and Croatia v Czech Republic, which produced our only goal from open-play on the day! Plus, a quick look ahead to tomorrow's slate of games!

Four Men Get Five Stars!

I absolutely love the super combo of Taylor, Joe, Graham, and Ryan! They bring different perspectives to each topic. Their chemistry together is really starting to gel. I especially enjoy all the jokes. This podcast always makes me smile!

Love your show but :)

Love the show but the last episode covering the post US game, no one mentioned Steffen and his lazy playing style (cross and pass back). This has been a part of his game for ever. Since he is Greg’s guy from American Crew and he is a City everyone assumes he is #1 and does not question his actual skill and results. There needs to be more analysis about him and his downside.
Horvath should be a more serious conversation and yes I know he needs to play well so does Steffen. Horvath should be a #1 this fall at a UK Championship team or a Bundesliga 1 team or a top 3 team from the Netherlands
