New Monday Episodes! Norwich takes down Man City, Barcelona's Ansu Fati, Another Ibra Hat Trick

Planet Fútbol with Grant Wahl - September 16, 2019 - 41:13

The Planet Fútbol Podcast goes to two episodes a week! On Mondays, Grant and SI's Luis Miguel Echegaray will give their takes on the soccer weekend that was, and on Thursdays Grant will continue to interview the most intriguing people in fútbol. In this episode, they break down Norwich's stunning victory over Man City, whether Sadio Mané has replaced Mo Salah as Liverpool's most important attacking player, why Chelsea brought Christian Pulisic back early from the international break and then didn't use him, the remarkable breakthrough of Barcelona 16-year-old Ansu Fati, Neymar's chilly reception from PSG fans (and his phenomenal goal), yet another Zlatan Ibrahimovic hat trick in MLS, why MLS's ban on "political" signage is the league's biggest mistake since Precourt/Columbus, NYCFC's 5-point lead in the MLS East, Atlanta's second straight loss (and potential volatility), Jesse Marsch's big UEFA Champions League opportunity, and Heather O'Reilly's classic golazo for the North Carolina Courage, which is dropping sixes on teams with regularity and pushing for another NWSL title.
