IT'S THE WEEKEND! This is WGFOP, presented by PrizePicks. Bring on a weekend gloriously free of Evertonian despair, but packed full of a daytime soap’s worth of storylines, as we enter the “Mind Games” territory of an unprecedented title race. 3 teams separated by a single point. The Premier League has not experienced this in its history. Let’s enjoy every second. Courage.See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.
"Liga MX versus Major League Soccer is the narrative we always feed into every single year in the CONCACAF Champions Cup"Herc talked with Eric Gomez, a friend of the house who works for ESPN Deportes, about all things Mexican football. They discussed Santi Gimenez's dry run with Feyenoord and with "El Tri", cleared up rumors that linked Mallorca's manager Javier Aguirre to the Mexican National Team, and debated on "Liga MX vs MLS" after this week's CONCACAF Champions Cup drama.See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

THE GAME THAT CHANGED THE WORLD. Like Seal or Beyonce, it needs only one name: "La Remontada" or "The Comeback" in English. Ahead of Barcelona's clash with PSG in this week's Champions League slate, Rog and New York Times chief soccer correspondent Rory Smith revisit that glorious night in the spring of 2017 when Barca fought back from down 4-0 on aggregate in their Champions League Round of 16 matchup against PSG, going on to score six (yes, six!) goals in the second leg, including three from the 87th minute beyond. Rog and Rory breakdown how that game would forever alter the landscape of world football, prompting PSG to sign Neymar for unthinkable amounts of money, sending Barcelona into a financial tailspin, and wreaking havoc on the global transfer market.Then, Rog and Rory head to Athens to deep dive on Greece's domestic powerhouse Olypmiacos, including their hot headed, shipping magnate, songwriting, potentially match-fixing, multi-hyphenate owner Evangelos Marinakis (who just so happens to also own Nottingham Forest). Plus, Rory gives him recommendation on where to find (and, more importantly, how to pronounce) the best gyros in Athens. All this and more on the latest European Nights....See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.
"We were on the way to the airport with my family when I got the call with Gregg Berhalter to play Concacaf Nations League. I was really happy but I couldn't share it with my family because they were excited for me to go on vacation with them."Rog is joined by Haji Wright, Coventry City striker and freshly minted CONCACAF Nations League champion. He told the story of his soccer journey that began in the playing fields of Los Angeles and continued with a grand tour of Europe's top football leagues. He has faced challenges and overcome them, becoming stronger and more skilled. Achieving remarkable moments for both his club and his nation.See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

In the final episode of this four-part series, Rog and Tommy trace the massive flow of Saudi money into Hollywood, Silicon Valley and Wall Street, and how the biggest venture capitalists and A-list celebrities seem to no longer care about Saudi Arabia’s human rights record. They also look back at the history of the US-Saudi relationship, and how President Biden went from pleading to make Saudi Arabia a “pariah” to traveling there to fist bump Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman in Jeddah. And finally, they dive into the possible motivations behind Saudi Arabia’s investments, from the need to diversify the Saudi economy, to whitewashing the murder of Jamal Khashoggi and changing the subject from other human rights violations. Despite all the depressing news, Rog and Tommy try to find glimmers of hope where grassroots activism and football can lead the way in creating a more just world. All of this and more, on the final episode of World Corrupt, Season 2.See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

“I spoke a lot with Wolfsburg’s front office about Kevin Paredes before they signed him. He's a guy that I played with together in DC, I know his work ethic and I'm happy that now he's been starting in the team after a year and a half”.Herc had a candid conversation with Julian Gressel, an American-German midfielder currently playing with Inter Miami after recently winning the MLS Cup with Columbus Crew.

Plus, Saudi Arabia has all but secured hosting rights for the 2034 Men’s World Cup....but did football’s global governing body FIFA rig the bidding process years in advance? And with Saudi Arabia also eyeing hosting duties for the 2035 Women's World Cup, former US Women’s National Team legend Megan Rapinoe gives her thoughts on what it would mean to play football's crown jewel tournament in a country where women are assigned a male guardian and homosexuality is illegal.

Your political insights are spot on, and it's an interesting revelation. It's fascinating to think about how unicorns were somehow linked to this decision of theirs. also visit https://ffadvanceserver.com for more info.

The reason I give it only 4 stars is this is at least the 5th time the entire back catalog of shows has been downloaded to my computer. Is there a reason this keeps happening? I've marked them played and then deleted them from the list. Other than that annoyance, really liking the show and keep up the great work fellas.
