With the devastating emptiness of the international break firmly behind them, Roger and Michael return to discover soccer, America’s sport of the future since 1972, making further inroads into U.S. popular culture.

The fully-blazered men discuss whether a two-team league is bad for the Premier League, decide on the greatest soccer movie of all time (SPOILER ALERT: It’s not Ladybugs), and concoct a brilliant scheme to make a certain perennial 5th division dweller “America’s Team.”
