Don't Kill The Joy

2/6/2024
The boys are BACK with 2 more game weeks to chat through, and what a crazy bunch of games! We see Chelsea continue to struggle in back to back defeats + fans are begging to hear the answer to the question: “How much longer does Poch have ?!” From one team in despair to another team that may have seen the title race slip away, Liverpool drops massive points against the mighty Arsenal in a game that could truly be looked at as the game that lost the title. Manchester United showed the most dominating performance they shown all season with a 4-3 win over Wolves + a 3-0 win over West Ham; In Ten Hag we trust. Finally, some good news as St. Louis City SC open up their preseason tally with a 2-1 win over LA Galaxy, but do they have enough depth to get it done in the CCL?! Tune in + let’s banter!
