It was the type of Champions League match week that makes Graham Ruthven say, "Meh." But never mind that because the rest of us are excited to talk about this week's matches, including Napoli and Barcelona trying (and maybe somewhat kind of succeeding) to get their respective seasons back on track, PSV failing to take their chances versus Dortmund, Inter Milan generating some "they could actually go all the way buzz," and Arsenal and Porto playing 50ish minutes of actual soccer. Plus, the debut of Joe's Concacaf Champions Cup Corner. --- Today's show is brought to you by... Fum! Start the Good Habit at tryfum.com/SOCCER to save 10% off the Journey Pack today! LinkedIn!

The whole gang is here to answer your questions! 1) Do we you see any CAF or AFC players getting a significant move after their performances in their respective tournaments? 2) If a mid-tier MLS team played in this year’s AFCON, how far would that team get? 3) Which MLS team would we like to see Jurgen Klopp take over in a hypothetical scenario where he wanted to coach in the U.S.? 4) Why do we (let’s be honest, Taylor) feel so passionately about Jurgen Klinsmann’s time in charge of the USMNT? 5) Who has been better for AC Milan this season: Rafael Leao or Christian Pulisic?  6) What are our worst takes ever? --- Today's show is brought to you by...

On this week's Big Thing episode, we revisit an old friend: Jurgen Klinsmann. With his South Korea side now eliminated from the 2023 Asian Cup, we look back on the team's performance at the tournament itself, how things have progressed (or not progressed) with Klinsmann in charge, and what's likely to happen next as the country's Golden Generation misses a chance for silverware. Were South Korea fortunate to even make it as far as the semi-finals? Were there signs of disgruntlement with Klinsmann before the tournament? How similar are the current complaints against Klinsmann to those when he was in charge of the USMNT? Oh, and also, who will win the Asian Cup final this weekend? Those questions and more, answered for you... while Taylor tries not to go off on a rant on multiple occasions. --- Today's show is brought to you by... Philo!

We're back with another AFCON special! On this episode, Taylor, Graham, and Joe dive into the semifinals. How did Nigeria get past South Africa?

You’ve got questions, we’ve got answers! 1. Who’s on soccer’s Mount Rushmore for facial hair? 2. Why do some folks look at Football Manager’s future player ratings for semi-serious insight, but completely laugh at FIFA/EA FC's potential ratings? 3. What’s going on with Schalke? Could they they lose their professional status? 4. Why have fans been throwing tennis balls onto the field in Bundesliga games lately? 5. Which will happen first: a goalkeeper winning the Ballon D'Or or an Asian nation winning the World Cup? 6. Would four groups of six teams with the top two teams advancing from each group improve the 24-team tournament format? --- Today's show is brought to you by... Philo!
