David hosts Episode 11 and talks about PSG's problem with comebacks after they managed let Rennes back into the French Cup Final, eventually losing in a shootout. Neymar didn't respond well lashing out at a Rennes fan and several of the younger players in the PSG squad. There was also a really curious ten minutes at Elland Road during the Leeds v Aston Villa match. Big Virg wins the PFA Player of the Year. Some transfer rumors...basically Man U and Real Madrid are going after every possible player. DC United get their third win in a row, while snapping a 12 game losing streak in Columbus. Then are hard done by in their 1-0 loss to Minnesota. Liverpool travel to Barcelona for the first leg of their semi-final match up in the Champions League. It won't be easy, but David thinks they have the goods to take it. In League play they're still winning, but it may not be enough to beat City to the finish line.
David rides into the studio to discuss Racism in Football and what's being proposed to stop it, Man City has a big game on Wednesday, MLS Expansion, Transfer Rumors, Liverpool's fine form, and DCU's decline.
David discusses the implications of Manchester City's loss to Spurs and takes a deeper dive into the VAR controversy surrounding Llorente's goal. In short, he doesn't think this changes much. City's toughest matches were always going to be Saturday and Wednesday, with the lighter ones coming later in the season. They still have to win both games--Saturday v Spurs and Wednesday @ Manchester United in order to win the title. Liverpool's path to their first EPL crown is much easier, but will the two matches v Barcelona hurt their chances. David says not really, they still have to win out against much lighter competition in the league. Nothing's changed. Except now City's emotionally, physically, and mentally exhausted after that tough loss to Spurs in the Champions League quarter-finals. If they can recover quickly and beat Spurs and United, then they deserve the title. If not, well, they could have to settle for second best.
And for Llorente's goal, there really shouldn't be much conversation. It wasn't a handball and the rule that everyone is pointing to doesn't exist yet. Basically the point is moot and the goal should, as it does, stand.
David rides solo again, decides to forgo the music and special effects, then spends the first segment talking Troy Deeney's sending off, Kaku blasting the ball at some fans, PSG fails to clinch the title yet again, and some transfer rumors. Followed by DCU rebounding, but some question marks remain. Ending with Liverpool beating Chelsea 2-0 and a 96 second moment of silence for the Hillsborough Disaster.
David records solo from his rooftop, the weather was too nice not to. He touches on some news items: that horrible miss in Paris, Der Klassiker, FA Cup, and Transfer Rumors. Then moves in to breaking down DCU's first set back and Liverpool's come back victory.
David is joined by his buddy Jimmy for a little Red Wine and soccer talk. The two discuss OGS finally getting a permanent contract, Cardiff's terrible luck, all the damn transfer rumors, USMNT stuff, Liverpool v Spurs, and DCU v Orlando.
David rides solo and discusses the increase in attendance at women's games in Spain and Italy. Then takes on the German national team and Yogi Low resurrecting his career after a disastrous 2018. Finally ending on Greg Berhalter's first big game in charge asks more questions than provides answers.
After a busy week and weekend of social events and soccer games, David rides solo again. In Episode 4, he tries to cover the midweek Champions League games, the weekend FA Cup and Premier League games, and DC United's huge win v Real Salt Lake. David also does his best to break down the two Liverpool matches from last week--the Champions League win v Bayern and win down in London v Fulham.
