Wherein Our Heroes imbibe liberally and spread tidings of joy and happiness. Stevie G suffers a lacerated Yule Log, a former England international is on the Naughty List, and Pogba proves a little dab will do him. A Christmas Classic is given the Gaffers treatment, and two very special guests cover a Yuletide staple. Happy Holidays!

Wherein Our Heroes explore why Petr Cech would be moved to eat himself, a star of the Italian Silver Screen rubs up against the business side of football, and Vardy is salty while Mahrez is sweet. We rue the fact that one Monk has no attachments, and Zanetti so easily finds the warm ball. Also, Gazza takes it too far (again) and our hats are off to Ataturk. Tune in next week for our Yuletacular Special!

Wherein Our Heroes get all Deutsche up in this Nordecke and pull out their Postsack to answer your burning questions. Der Kraftwürfel shines for Stoke City, Marwin Hitz causes a Modeste miss and the MLS Cup Final is wunderbar! Also, the president of “Le Coq” is not havin’ any sex scandals, Jack Warner plumbs new depths, and Rodney Wallace bobs and weaves his way through a barrage of beer cans all the way to the illustrious “Haircut of the Week” award.

Wherein Our Heroes hope the MLS Cup runneth over, a cast is discussed for Jamie Vardy's life on celluloid, Manchester United continue to bore, Arsenal's infirmary continues to burst at the seams, and we are not having Diego Costa's pathetic attempt at insubordination. Also, Leeds fans are collectively awarded for their trouble obeying the law.

Wherein Our Heroes are joined by yet another co-host, Fearghal. The fellas play Mourinho for a day, Liverpool and Spurs run rampant, and it’s a nightmare weekend for The Gunners. Toby Alderweireld’s penchant for the wet-hair look helps him rise above, the Los Blancos faithful jeer the fudge out of their star (who wishes to “retire with dignity”), and the MLS may have been underestimated by Stevie and Francis. Also, we make the case to be hired as scribes for the best buddy dramedy to hit the UK airwaves in decades.

Wherein Our Heroes are joined by their first-ever guest host, who struggles with The Gaffers’ creed. Formations are obsessed over, Euro 2016 dark horses are released from their barns, and the lads take a pretend gamble on Ronaldinho. Dimitri Payet, Olivier Giroud, and Christian Eriksen are lauded for their performances this season, while Sunderland and Villa are in tough. Also, Brendan is subjected to the dreaded Lightning Round of Awesomeness.

Nov 11, 2015

Wherein Our Heroes adjudge themselves to be desolate after the last round of the MLS playoffs. Jamie Vardy is the slyest of Foxes (not to be Ruud), Brendan Rodgers hops The Tube, and Rooney’s slaps are better than his finishing. Also, Stoic Loic Remy receives a huzzah for not going to ground, Jeb Brovsky rocks a modern-day Errol Flynn look, and a Costa Rican referee gets the heave-ho from CONCACAF. Jason recounts his recent experience in Vancouver, and The Gaffers weigh in on MLS and BPL before the international break.

Wherein Our Heroes get in touch with their inner Liza Minnelli, belt out Aaron Neville’s greatest hits in Spanish and dip into the mail bag to answer your burning questions. Chelsea’s woes are innumerable, Barcelona’s players are left with huevos on their face, and Rémi is the new Garde. Also, Sasha brings the stasha, sacking Kreis ain’t nice, and the Impact drive all the girls crazy.

The clock hath struck midnight on the MLS regular season and only 12 clubs have survived the bloodbath. Our Heroes provide their ghoulish predictions on who will come out alive and who will be dragged to the fiery depths of hell. Will Sporting Kansas City transform when the moon is full? Will Mauro Biello’s unnatural creation come to life at Saputo? Will Carl Robinson’s children of the night feast on the souls of the living? The Young Gaffers answer all of these questions and more on this most devilish 13th episode. Also, we answer fan mail from Amy.

Oct 14, 2015

Wherein Our Heroes dish out a veritable footballing feast of autumnal profundity. The British press falls for Jurgen Klopp (Haircut of the Week recipient) like newly changed oak leaves in the October breeze, we’re havin’ Don Garber’s vision like decorative gourds on a bountiful table, and Blatter, Valcke and Platini reap what they sow. Also, international injuries runneth over like a Horn ‘o’ Plenty and the Canadian Soccer Association schedules a mid-week turkey.

Oct 7, 2015

Wherein Our Heroes lube themselves in irreverence and slide into goings on with Brendan Rodgers, José Mourinho, and Manchester United’s tactical woes. Arsenal won’t let their partner finish, Aguero bags five in one day, and the MLS nears its trembling climax. Also, John Terry nets a Tesco gift card for malodorous parking practices.

Wherein Our Heroes wax philosophical about goings on in the Barclays Premier League and Major League Soccer – Ivanovic is Terrible, Cesc looks Fabregassed and Michel scores an olimpico. Also, Italians get their green cards, the world’s first Permhawk is duly celebrated, and we witness a magnificent Double Outro.

Sep 9, 2015

Wherein Our Heroes read fan mail, provide a geometry lesson, and promise to discuss things later (but in true Gaffers fashion, don’t). Also, Robert Huth and Saido Berahino are declared co-recipients in a weekly segment.

Wherein Our Heroes meditate on Drogba’s toe, the Group of Death, and laud Dominic Oduro’s coif. Also, United Passions gets the full Young Gaffers treatment and, in a surprise twist, an Australian businessman takes home the Joey Barton Award for being very un-Kewell.

Wherein Our Heroes, in the tradition of bildungsroman, ruminate on FIFA propaganda films, play Nostradamus and hand out the first ever Joseph Anthony Barton Award (for excellence in the field of douchebaggery). Please collect your Tesco gift card, Jamie Vardy.
