We’re not a dating service (ep. 33)

The boys are finally back after a week of traveling and not getting re-accommodated on their flights.

With plenty to discuss Cosgrove and Quinno jump right into the Champions League action discussing Barca getting thrashed, UEFA having no consideration for humanity, and the tough sledding ahead for Leicester.

The Crafty Rogues then jump to last weekend’s events in the Premier League where things went from bad to worse for Wenger, Sunderland remain a joke, and Lukaku & Barkley played like they were in the transfer window.

Quinno rounds up some general football news before the guys answer your emails. Cosgrove gets after some missed PR opportunities in Just Cos. Producer Jonathan fills the guys in on what happened in the MLS and with Minnesota United while they were away. Quinno puts Cosgrove through another round of Your Choice before closing the show questioning what the FIFA Rankings really mean.

All that and more on this weeks edition of The Crafty Rogues!

    Ep.32 was a fine show that needs more promotion…….. much thanks. Some tidbits:
    – Soccer Made in Germany was a wonderful intro to the game on PBS (who’d a thunk it) once a week. They compressed a Bundesliga game into one hour. The announcer was the great Toby Charles.
    – You asked about Irish who have played for Minnesota teams: Steve Heighway played for the Kicks in 1981, after a decade with Liverpool (and the Irish National Team). From Northern Ireland, there was Bill Irwin, goalkeeper, who played a year of indoor league with the Strikers (and a few years with other MISL teams). His prior teams across the pond were Bangor FC (N.I.) and Cardiff City (Wales).
    – If you see that new announcer for the Loons, remind him that he’s on the radio too. We need a better play-by-play description so the listeners know what’s going on!!! He calls a good goal, but has a LOT of work to do on his play-by-play between the goals. Kyndra is fantastic for the radio listener. I hope someone at the station reads this!
