In England, all or nearly all of their home matches are at Wembley.

Coach? Analyst? Simply retire? 3) Why does Sergiño Dest play at leftback? Is it due to a lack of quality on the left? An over abundance on the right? What is it? 4) If USMNT Twitter was a song, what would it be and why? And if the USMNT was a song, what would it be? 5) Who would we realistically like to manage the USMNT after the 2022 World Cup cycle?  6) Is it too late to for players like Luca de la Torre or Sebastian Soto to wade their way into the mix for the USMNT during WCQ?  7) How is Gianluca Busio doing with Venezia in Italy?

Just ask Leipzig. 3) Napoli continues the strong start with a 2-1 over Juventus, whose individual mistakes have us wondering what Allegri needs to fix first and fastest. 4) Atletico were different, and then familiar... and then they ended up getting two late goals to earn a 2-1 win, thereby proving that the club will never change.

    Retiring Messi's jersey, Solskjaer's virtues, new throw-in rules, and more listener questions!

    On today's show, Ryan Bailey and Graham Ruthven answer your listener questions! More specifically, these listener questions... 1) Scotland in the 70's and 80's seems to have had a lot of top-end players. Is it correct to say Scotland underperformed heavily in that era and if so, what were the reasons? 2) Is Poophousery strategic? Can it be taught? Can it elevate an otherwise less-skilled team to success at scale? 3) We hear a lot of criticism about Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. To flip it positive: what is Ole really good at? 4) Is retiring a jersey a thing in soccer? Should Barcelona retire the No.10 jersey? 5) Did Liverpool trick everyone into thinking Coutinho was good, or was he actually good? 6) What would happen if FIFA changed the throw-in rule to allow any types of throws. Which would be the most used? Would throw-ins become a bigger or smaller part of the game? Would there be throw-in specialists? 7) Is the FIFA video game a positive for kids to play? On one hand, it helps kids get into the sport and understand some of the roles. On the other, it's not a very accurate facsimile of the game and some traits appear under or overvalued. Sponsors!
