For the debut of Men in Blazers, the Grantland Network’s English Premier League podcast, Michael Davies and Roger Bennett discuss what team soccer newbies should support, the difficulties of pronouncing the name “Grantland,” and the innate authority of people who wear blazers.

Davies and Bennett also cover the worst weekends in London history, the early dominance of the EPL’s Manchester contingent, the problem-solving nature of oil money, and which former dictators and despots they would root for over Manchester United.
