Grantland Network: Men In Blazers

Matt West/BPI/Icon SMI

In this week’s pod, the Men In Blazers learn that Manchester United players are mortal, praise Shawn Bradley’s English doppelganger Peter Crouch, heatedly debate Fernando Torres’ fragile mental psyche and delve into the Telegram Capsule to answer your questions and offer an update on the fundraising campaign to make Everton America’s Team. Thanks to an anonymous sheik, they’re now 0.007 percent of the way there.

Plus, after a lifetime of being disappointed by players, teams, results and the England national team, eternal optimist Michael Davies and “Glass Half-Full” Roger Bennett discuss the most and least disappointing players of the young Premier League season.
