Ep. 51 - VAR dramatically denies Manchester City a last minute winner!

MatchDay 2 | Premier League 2019/20 •Lacazette and Aubameyang both on the scoresheet to give Arsenal a perfect start so far. Some of the new summer arrivals are still settling into the team, let's see what they can produce against Liverpool next weekend! •It's a perfect start for Liverpool as well as they've bagged two wins out of two games. Pretty even game against Southampton as the Saints had a lot of goal scoring opportunities but luckily, the Reds were far more clinical! •Manchester City dominated the entire game but had nothing to show for at the end of the match. Spurs only managed three shots (vs. 30 for City) but were successful in scoring against the run of play. BIG performance from KDB, is he gonna be back to his best?! •Leicester denies a first win in the Premier League for Frank Lampard but team shows encouraging signs. Academy product (yes, you read that right) Mason Mount has another fine performance and is rewarded with a goal at the Bridge! •United dominates t...

Ep. 50 - Juventus : The most important season for La Vecchia Signora in modern history? (w/ The Bianconeri Show)

In 2006, the Calciopoli scandal devasted Juventus and left the Old Lady in relegated in the Serie B wilderness. A little over 10 years later, they have conquered Italy time and time again and are now in the conversation as one of Europe's biggest club. Led by Andrea Agnelli's incredible leadership, the Turin-based club has experienced an unprecedented growth in every aspect of the club thanks to changes in structure, organization, branding and strategy. This growth was culminated last summer, when Cristiano Ronaldo joined the club. Juventus have won 8 scudetti in a row, and are now committed more than ever to reach the European holy grail after two unlucky finals in 2015 and 2017. So how exactly did Juventus reach such heights in a very short time? The Bianconeri Show join us in the discussion today to share their point of view and let us know if Sarri is the man to take them to the next step.

Ep. 49 - Summer 2019 Transfer Window | Calciomercato

Ep. 48 - Women's World Cup 2019 & the significance of women's soccer | Part II

Last week, Axel and special guest Leisa had a candid conversation about how 2019 would be remembered as a pivotal moment for women's soccer around the world. Popularity of women's soccer is really taking off and established clubs in Europe have taken notice of that, and there is a feeling they are taking it a lot more seriously given the financial incentives of a growing, untapped market. As women's soccer vies to become more mainstream (the good), it is important to also discuss the bad, the ugly and how much progress still needs to be made. Women and young girls around the world have historically faced - and continue to face - economic and societal barriers that exclude them from freely and fully playing the beautiful game. In this episode, we discuss the systemic sexism - with stories from South America - the financial inequalities between men's and women's soccer and the issue of equal pay in the context of bonuses with national teams. Lastly, we touch on the discrimination of w...

Ep. 47 - Women's World Cup 2019 & the significance of women's soccer | Part I

With all the record-breaking attendances at domestic league games in Italy, Spain and England, over 1.7 million people expected to fill stadiums all over France, and FIFA forecasting the World Cup viewership around the world to hit the billion mark, 2019 will definitely be remembered as a major turning point for women's soccer around the globe. Established clubs in Europe and other regions investing more heavily in women's soccer - some of them putting together their first ever female sides - and brands tapping into a commercially young and growing market gives us the feeling that women's soccer is generally becoming more mainstream. In this episode, Leisa joins us to discuss the pivotal moment that is the World Cup and we talk about the group stages, best games so far, players who have impressed, as well as predictions and which team will be up there to fight for the ultimate trophy. Stay tuned for part II - we'll be discussing important topics such as the enormous inequalities bet...

Ep. 46 - Liverpool are crowned champions of Europe for a sixth time!

Final | Champions League 2018/19 In this episode we mostly do a review of the *boring* Champions League final! We go over both managers' tactics and how they affected the game, as well as some things that we think could have been done differently. Was that an actual penalty for Liverpool early on in the game?

Ep. 44 - Liverpool and Tottenham produce miracles & set up an all-English Champions League final!

Semi-finals | Champions League 2018/19 What an unbelievable week the entire football world has witnessed! Each knock-out stage game in this year's Champions League has produced at least one 'remontada', and Liverpool, Spurs as well as the football Gods writing these insane scripts have conspired one last taste of it in the semi-finals!

This is a team that was missing Salah and Firmino, coming into the game with a huge mountain to climb but they showed unbelievable character, belief and HEART to inflict another remontada (wink, wink, AS Roma!) to European giants, Barcelona CF! • Spurs were facing a 3-0 deficit including an away goal by half-time, and you have to wonder what the team tal...
