Musa and Ryan reflect on the FA Cup semifinals, which saw Chelsea and Arsenal progress to the final and highlighted potential problems within the two Manchester clubs (05:50). In the U.S., the NWSL was full of shocks as the top four seeds all exited the competition and Britt Eckerstrom stole the show (22:35), plus Ryan shares his love of the numerous novelty Twitter accounts that have sprung up around the tournament. The MLS was also wild, with goals, sendoffs, and plenty of VAR drama, much like La Liga’s final day, which saw Leganés relegated, two legends leave, and Villarreal and Granada seal their first ever European spot (32:00). Finally, they touch on Bielsa’s Leeds United getting promoted to the Premier League, Nigel Pearson’s sacking with two games left, and World Cup winner Andre Schürrle retiring at the age of 29 (42:25).
