Oh, and Neymar breaks the bank.

Jul 20, 2017

Wherein Our Heroes analyze Wayne Rooney’s move to Everton as well as Chelsea’s recent signings in the transfer market. Antonio Cassano does a retirement about-face, the MLS All-Star jersey leaves us wanting, and Canada has thoroughly impressed in the Gold Cup.

Jun 14, 2017

Wherein Our Heroes discuss potential preliminary transfer predictions, weigh in on the Diego Costa/ Antonio Conte saga, and award Michael Bradley the most aerodynamic Haircut of the Week in the history of Gafferdom (both for his coif and laser-like chip). We lament the occasional incursion of politics into sport, reminisce about the Drambuie Showcase Revue, and advise how Calgarians can get behind their Hoops, Foothills F.C. Also, Samuel Piette is apparently responsible for most of the attendees at the latest Canadian Men’s friendly in Montreal.

May 26, 2017

Wherein Our Heroes discuss the Premier League season that was. Overachievers, underachievers, managerial gaffes, successes…the heat is brought. The weird and wacky from the last match day is reviewed with speed, wit, and dexterity. Also, the League One Cup Final results in a collective Barton Award to cap off 2017-18.

May 10, 2017

Wherein Our heroes devote an entire episode to a thought-provoking correspondence from Brendan. The Leftovers is hailed as a revolutionary moment for television, Sulley Muntari is praised for walking off the pitch in but one of a series of terrible instances of racism in the sport recently, and the Canadian Premier League gets a green light – with two confirmed clubs and hopes to kick off as early as 2018. Bastian Schweinsteiger throws some major shade by openly speaking about a gulf between MLS and the big European leagues. Also, friend-of-the-show Lev sends a note and meets us in the middle on our ongoing urination debate.

Apr 29, 2017

Wherein Our Heroes celebrate the upcoming Calgary Foothills F.C. PDL season, mourn the loss of Ugo Ehiogu, and bestow upon Joey Barton an esteemed Joey Barton Award. Viewer feedback on the use of the spidercam in the Manchester Derby is scathing, Jamie Vardy must fend off real foxes, and Héctor Bellerín sports one of the worst haircuts (barnets) ever. Also, Providence Park is earmarked for a sexy expansion and a cockney rhyming slang quiz is failed miserably.

Apr 20, 2017

Wherein Our Heroes reveal the latest celebrity Arsenal supporter (hint: he lives on Pennsylvania Avenue but his father doesn’t). Wandrille Lefèvre is suspended for a troubling social media post, John Terry announces he’ll be leaving Chelsea at the end of the season, and Manchester United see off Conte’s men, making West London squirm as the race for the title tightens like Denise Bueno’s Official Brazilian Sunday League Standard Issue Uniform. Also, Bayern are on the wrong end of some dodgy officiating against Real Madrid and we discuss the return of HBO’s The Leftovers and the world’s latest podcast sensation, S-Town.

Apr 14, 2017

Wherein Our Heroes attempt to decipher the recent incident between Ross Barkley, an unnamed assailant, and a Sun columnist. We debate inclusions and omissions for the PFA Player of the Year Award, weigh in on Arsène Wenger’s future at Arsenal, and celebrate the World Cup bid submitted by our beloved Canada, the United States, and Mexico. Also, we take a moment to reflect on the recent incidents that rocked the football world before Borussia Dortmund’s match with Monaco.

Apr 8, 2017

Wherein Our Heroes dissect the recently-unveiled Cristiano Ronaldo bust; for the record, we are Having It. Two Toulouse FC players get the sack for attacking a pedestrian with a pellet gun, Vancouver Whitecaps FC can’t compete with Tigres in the CONCACAF Champions League, and Schweinsteiger impresses in his MLS debut. Also, we delve into the seedy world of employment in Ibiza and discover we are just too old for the party life.

Mar 29, 2017

Wherein Our Heroes play pretend music curators for FIFA 18 and take our rightful place as style mavens. Samir Nasri flips his mega-mansion, Atlanta United FC educate the local media, and Séamus Coleman suffers a horror injury. Icelanders prove to have celebrated their Euro 2016 victory over England by knocking the proverbial boots, resulting in many new sons and dottirs arriving last weekend. Also, we continue to discuss the merits and pitfalls of sitting to urinate.

Mar 22, 2017

Wherein Our Heroes yet again pull out many tricks: a Deluge of Segments, Mailbag, a Ghanaian Brace, and Canadian Bacon, among others. Chicago complete a bizarre signing by adding Bastian Schweinsteiger to a crowded central midfield, two Ghanaians err in vastly different ways, The Canadian Men’s National Team finally get their man, and Toronto FC are victors over Vancouver Whitecaps at BC Place. Also, inspired by Messi and Suárez, we sing the praises of peeing whilst sitting down, and also recount the filmography of visionary director Jon Turteltaub.

Mar 15, 2017

Wherein Our Heroes unleash a flurry of segments, including but not limited to Bournemouth’s Joshua King rocking a treble-worthy coif, a Millwall supporter entering the annals of Bartondom for a haymaker thrown after the latest round of FA Cup matches; and, an educated discussion surrounding whether or not Harry Kane should have even started said FA Cup match in the first place. Also, Ibra’s package is apparently huge, Jay DeMerit pitches his latest venture on Dragon’s Den, and surely things can’t get worse for Minnesota United FC. Also, we discuss The Bachelor finale, natch.

Mar 9, 2017

Wherein Our Heroes delve into the ins and outs of the upcoming MLS season. The youth movement has us excited, we like the cut of Seattle's jib, and peg Toronto FC to take the next step. Minnesota United FC is likely to falter in their inaugural season, we are not having current Bachelor Nick Viall's lotharious ways, and we award a Triple Barton to Orlando City SC, NYCFC, and Atlanta United's supporters. Here's to a great season!

Mar 2, 2017

Wherein Our Heroes praise Southampton for their efforts in the EFL Cup Final against Manchester United. Crystal Palace’s supporters idiotically vandalize their own club’s coach, Pogba and Fàbregas both achieve incredible milestones, and the right-sleeves of several Premier League clubs look set to be adorned with adverts next season. Also, Claudio Ranieri is finally cut loose by the brass at Leicester; was player power to blame, or Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway?

Feb 17, 2017

Wherein Our Heroes discuss the merits of Spurs being included in the "Top 6". Freddy Montero makes his return to MLS, while Calgary Foothills F.C. are approved for a women’s team in UWS. Asamoah Gyan faces a reprimand for his “unethical hair”, and a Robbie Brady cracker inspires a glorious verbal slip on Sky. Meanwhile, we continue to hate on The Bachelor and Adam spoils the season premiere of Girls.

Jan 24, 2017

Wherein Our Heroes are joined by Luke from Omaha to delve into the recent changes to Chinese Super League rules regarding foreign players. Dimitri Payet is ostracized at West Ham and must now create a splinter WhatsApp Group, Wayne Rooney is given kudos for a cracker of a milestone, and Spurs rally to steal a point against Manchester City. Also, we share our idiosyncrasies in light of Ashley Young’s recent revelation…the lad’s got some straight up wacked eating habits.

Marco van Basten’s proposed revisions to The Beautiful Game are given the Gaffers Treatment, Juventus, The Old Lady, unveils a radical new badge to mixed reviews, and the Guam Premier Division sees Ashton Surber booked for his post-goal marriage proposal.

Jan 12, 2017

Wherein Our Heroes reconvene after a lengthy holiday hiatus. We catch up on television shows (both scripted and unscripted) and attempt, in our Muggle way, to discern several Harry Potter spells. The Real Mike Dean gets mistaken for a real Mike Dean, Will Johnson fires off a parting shot at Toronto FC in our Canadian segment, and William Pottker brandishes his finest wand to celebrate a goal in the Brasilerio Série A. Also, Pardew and Bradley get sacked…can Swans and Crystal Palace turn the tides?

Dec 14, 2016

Wherein Our Heroes yet again throw shade at the MLS, but only because we love the league so much. Seattle triumphs over Toronto FC in an MLS Cup Final that can only be described as a bit of a snoozer. Atlanta United and Minnesota United FC flesh out their rosters through the MLS Expansion Draft, Joey Barton is added to the Burnley F.C. WhatsApp group, and José Mourinho brings the lads in for a training session on Christmas Day. Also, we assert our sovereignty over The North Pole, and confirm Santa’s identity as Canadian once and for all.
