CrossingBroad.com’s international soccer podcast recapping games and discussing storylines related to UEFA Champions League, World Football, EPL, La Liga, Bundesliga, Serie A, Ligue 1, and MLS. Co-hosted by Russell Joy and Crossing Broad contributor and former featured columnist on Manchester City and World football for BleacherReport Report Phil Keidel. New episodes post Saturday mornings by 6:00 AM.
Phil and Russ explain their extended absence and react to the Philadelphia Union's playoff elimination, Jim Curtin's tactics, and the team's future going forward. They then break down what's gone wrong with Real Madrid, Barcelona's form without Messi, Borussia Dortmund's unbeaten run, whether Bayern München has the ability to reclaim the top spot in the Bundesliga, Manchester City's great start, the talent gap in the EPL, Cristiano Ronaldo leading Juventus, and Gonzalo Higuain's unceremonious departure. The guys finish up with some TV rights discussion including the alleged piracy of league games by the Saudi network beoutQ, Bein Sports being dropped by Comcast and DirecTV, B/R Live's app, and ESPN+ takeaways. Plus, Twitter questions!
