Musa and Ryan begin with the sad news that broke during recording that former France, Lyon, and Liverpool manager Gérard Houllier has passed away (06:43). They then discuss Borussia Dortmund firing Lucien Favre following Dortmund’s 5-1 home defeat to newly promoted Stuttgart, the context of Favre’s arrival, and where the team may go next (08:58). There’s also chat about the game itself as well as the rest of the Bundesliga (24:51). They discuss La Liga and the Madrid Derby (31:08) and the relatively calm Premier League (39:50). Finally there are roundups of big weekends in Ligue 1 (49:10), the WSL, and Frauen Bundesliga (55:13) and Columbus Crew’s MLS Cup win (61:02).
