    The rise and abrupt fall of the European Super League w/ Adam Snavely (plus, a new Champions League format and the USA's Olympic group draw)

    The rise and abrupt fall of the European Super League w/ Adam Snavely (plus, a new Champions League format and the USA's Olympic group draw)

    With the European Super League now appearing to be dead in the water, Adam Snavely joins Taylor to discuss where things stand and how we got to this point. Plus, we try to get to the bottom of some big questions, like why did the owners ever think this would ever go well, what will happen next, how severe will any potential punishments be, what might this mean for MLS, the possibility that this was all a ploy, and much much more. Plus, we break down the new Champions League format that was agreed earlier in the week, and the USA's group at the Olympics this summer.

    Weekend Review! European Super League drama, Mourinho gets the boot, MLS returns & Messi wins another cup!

    Weekend Review! European Super League drama, Mourinho gets the boot, MLS returns & Messi wins another cup!

    Ryan, Taylor and Graham are here to discuss the weekend’s best action—and the story that could redefine the sport: the announcement of the breakaway European Super League.
    - The European Super League! A fundamental and seismic change to the sport at its highest level might be on the cards, with the announcement of a breakaway league. What does this mean for the teams involved, the players, and the sporting integrity of the beautiful game as a whole?
    - Jose Mourinho! The Special One was given his marching orders on Monday, a matter of days before the League Cup Final. Seems harsh, but there's a (cynical) reason for the timing...
    - Chelsea vs. Man City: The FA Cup! How quaint! We look at how Tommy Tuchel got the better of Pep Guardiola at Wembley!
    - Barcelona vs. Athletic Club: Lionel Messi got his hands on the (massive) Cope Del Rey trophy once again, at poor Bilbao's expense.
    - Inter Miami vs. LA Galaxy: The pick of the MLS litter on opening weekend was a thoroughly enjoyable affair in Fort Lauderdale!

    Matt Doyle discusses the start of the 2021 MLS season: what makes Jim Curtin such a good coach, how Minnesota United can win the west, Bobby Wood's arrival at Real Salt Lake, and much much more!

    The Armchair Analyst himself is on the pod to discuss mezcal cocktails and cat ownership... and also the start of the 2021 MLS season. If you missed the chat with Sam Stejskal earlier in the week, scroll down the feed a bit and you'll find it.
    In this episode, we get into some of the teams that Sam and I didn't get to, including Toronto, Minnesota, Sporting KC, Orlando City, and many more. Plus. the deepest teams in the league and the current state NYCFC, who definitely aren't on the "deepest teams" list right now.

Really love and enjoy all your contents.

Stop Combing Multiple Shows

I don’t want to sift through 5+ TSS episodes to find the weekly Allocation Disorder episode. Stop combining multiple shows into 1 Podcast. It’s been long enough. Separate them.

Unreal

30 minutes of who the Jamaican national team is trying to potentially recruit to play on their future World Cup team? And, I am supposed to stay awake for this? it’s like the hosts are just trying to impress me with the number of English born players they can name that might be applying for a Jamaican passport. Bravo!!!
