This Just In! Bernardeschi arrives at TFC, CanMNT players unionize & Lewandowski trades Bayern for Barça

About the Episode


Brendan Dunlop, Craig Forrest, James Sharman and producer Dan Wong react to Toronto FC‘s latest big money Designated Player signing, Italian international and EURO 2020 champion, Federico Bernardeschi. Craig raves about Alex Bono’s big saves as the crew debate whether TFC have left it too late to make an MLS Cup playoff run, after Saturday’s 1-0 loss away to CF Montreal in the “401 Derby” Canadian Classique. Wonger tries to make sense of the money TFC are spending, and the crew react to Barcelona‘s continued spending with the acquisition of Robert Lewandowski, leaving a hole in Bayern Munich hearts. CanWNT’s CONCACAF W Final versus the USWNT is previewed, and we get an answer as to why it’s being played Monday night in Monterrey.  

The crew are hopeful that the Canadian men’s national team players’ decision to unionize, along with the legal advice from Toronto and Washington DC-based counsel, can provide a resolution with the Canadian Soccer Association. Talk of Lorenzo Insigne’s return from injury sends the boys down a road of old war stories, which includes Sharms revealing he’s more fragile than a porcelain doll, and Dunny re-living failed sporting moments at charity games with retired soccer players and NHLers.
