What a time to be a Major League Soccer fan! Brendan Dunlop, Craig Forrest and Jimmy Brennan had a lot to recap as James Sharman returned from vacation at just the right moment to witness Lorenzo Insigne and Federico Bernardeschi's Toronto FC debut - although Sharman's jealousy over Jimmy & Dunny's Beer Fest stories is clearer than a calorie conscious light beer. The crew marvelled over the immediate impact the Italian duo made on a TFC team that sits 5 points out of a playoff spot with 12 MLS games to play this season. If Saturday's 4-0 win over Charlotte FC was just the appetizer, it's going to be one special meal! Gareth Bale's first goal for LAFC and Xherdan Shaqiri's dagger against the Vancouver Whitecaps put the bow on a wild MLS Saturday night.
Forrest and Jimmy relive the most haunting moments from their playing careers, much to the amusement of producer Dan Wong. Sharms is not a fan of pre-season tours trying to replicate meaningful games and gets into a hilariously heated exchange with Dunny about El Clásico in Las Vegas. Erling Haaland's Manchester City debut at Lambeau Field in Green Bay is discussed, as is Arsenal's hot start to the pre-season and Thomas Tuchel's frustration with Chelsea's summer transfer window. The crew also make another athletic challenge, putting Jimmy and Craig on the spot to pick the best squad amongst the six of them to win a 3v3 mini game, at a yet to be determined soccer field not near you.
