This week’s podcast begins with thoughts on Liverpool and the fallout from their League Cup Final win over Cardiff City concerning manager Kenny Dalglish.

The focus then shifts to the Premier League where Willie embarks on an almighty rant about Spurs’ abject performance against Arsenal in last week’s North London derby, and there’s chat on the title race with Manchester sides City and United still almost neck and neck at the top of the table.

To round off, the lads talk about international friendlies, their merit and their future with a lot of sides in action on Wednesday night.

In the second half of the show, there’s a look ahead to the upcoming MLS season as Michael explains the workings of the league’s draft system and also the reasons behind their successful expansion in recent years with Montreal Impact to latest club to join.

Michael has recently published his first book entitled ‘The 1975 Portland Timbers – the birth of Soccer City, USA’ and you can purchase a copy by heading to the FC Media website.
