MLS/CONCACAF Edition

On this episode, Kamal Hylton & Aaron Nielsen kick off the show in Segment 1 “The First Round” discussing if MLS teams “Play The Percentages” when it comes to stats/analytics financially and on the field before diving into whether the “Rags to Riches” storyline that is so prevalent in boxing is dying in soccer with the rise of academies.

We wrap up the show with Segment 2 “Last Call” looking at how soccer clubs are using the Football Manager video game to scout players and whether cross-branding between sports would help bring in more casual fans to MLS games.

The Gaffer and Hooligan is back, as myself and Aaron Nielsen do a bonus episode this week.

We kick off the show in Segment 1 “The First Round” with myself and Aaron examining the U-20 Women’s World Cup, looking more specifically at what should come of both it and the 2015 senior Women’s World Cup long term.

We then transition into examining the trend in North American sports of teams mortgaging their future for a shot at a title. Using the NBA’s ongoing trade saga involving Andrew Wiggins and Kevin Love as an example, we discuss whether this would and should ever happen in Major League Soccer.

To end the show, in Segment 2 “Last Call” we talk about North American sports moving towards younger GM’s and those with an analytical/statistical outlook before allowing Aaron to play the role of GM. Giving his take on what he’d do with the Montreal Impact.

Join us this week as we once again take you around the world of sports. From Andy Dalton’s new deal, to Becky Hammon’s historical hiring, to Cleveland & Minnesota’s “handshake” Kevin Love deal, to Paul George’s gruesome injury, we’ll pack as much into 2 hours as we possibly can.

On top of all of that, the NFL preseason is here! We’ll discuss the biggest stories from training camps around the league and as usual, we’ll check in with our college football guru Fred Perdue for his ACC & SEC previews and predictions.

You don’t wanna miss this one!
