Grantland Network Podcast: Men in Blazers

Fernando TorresIt’s been an exhausting year of football, capped by Spain’s second consecutive Euro title Sunday. Michael Davies and Roger Bennett survived, barely, and reconvene on this week’s pod to discuss the Spanish Smurfs’ potent attack, heap praise on Italy’s footballing Fonz, Andrea Pirlo, and dole out grades to ESPN’s crack halftime squad.

But the football doesn’t stop here; it never does. As the Men in Blazers take a summer break, a wealth of English clubs come crashing to America’s shores. While most media outlets will be focusing on the friendlies featuring megaclubs Real Madrid, AS Roma, and Chelsea, the boys salivate over the titillating Swansea–Ventura County Fusion showdown on July 28.

We’ll see you in August.
