On Diego Maradona with Harry Harris
In this episode, Joe and Rob open with Rob giving you a great trivia question regarding young strikers (4:40). We then combine Opening Thoughts with our special guest by inviting freelance football writer Harry Harris in to discuss Champions League as they get set to kick off Match Day 1 (6:00). We discuss the top matchups including Barcelona/Borussia Dortmund (7:15), Napoli/Liverpool (12:50), Atletico Madrid/Juventus (17:15), and Real Madrid/PSG (22:10). We also touch on Chelsea Football Club (28:25), and we then keep Harry around to chat about the emergence of Tammy Abraham and Teemu Puuki in the EPL (32:30). Other topics include the emergence of Ansu Fati at Barcelona (41:30), and a lack of unbeaten teams this early in the season in the top 5 leagues (47:25). We close with matches to watch this week (56:00), and the trivia answer combined with Diego Maradona and a preview of next week’s show (57:20).
