Jonathan Johnson and Stel Stylianou
In this episode, Joe and Rob immediately welcome in Jonathan Johnson from ESPN FC to preview Ligue 1 as they get set to kick off the season this weekend (3:05). We discuss everything from Lille’s dismantling, to PSG repeating, to Neymar departing. We then manage to squeeze in trivia pertaining to the transfer window in Ligue 1 (34:25) as we continue the show with a special treat. Stel Stylianou from Shoot the Defense drops in to the show to break down the Premier League as they too get set to open the 19/20 season this weekend (35:05). Liverpool, Manchester United, Italian strikers, and Arsenal’s defense are among the topics discussed. We then close with a list of matches to open the European season in Match of the Week (1:00:05), and the trivia answer (1:00:50). We are off for the next two weeks, and will return on August 25th.
