Wherein Our Heroes provide their musings on the Group Stage of World Cup 2018. We are both having VAR’s role to varying degrees. Unpacking Germany’s shortcomings could take a whole episode, but we provide the “Gaffers Notes” version. Coaching and tactics have plagued many perennial powerhouses; we discuss Eurocentrism in soccer punditry, and, with no clear-cut favourites, attempt our predictions for the Round of 16. Also, Jason attends a Whitecaps town hall and provides insight on the relationship between club and supporters.
