In a weekend of weird, deflected, and unintended goals, Sergio Aguero’s wonder winner for City in Monday’s Manchester Derby stands apart. And while there were plenty of other moments worth celebrating, the Men in Blazers commence this week’s Churchill Day pod by marking the passing of Great Britain’s first female prime minister, Margaret Thatcher.

Speaking of Iron Ladies, the Blazers are then joined by a less polarizing one: Abby Wambach, of the U.S. women’s national team. Calling from The Hague, Wambach chats about playing in a men’s league, Fernando Torres stealing her do, and why the latest women’s professional league — NWSL — can succeed where others have failed. May the third time be a charm.
