It’s listener question time! On this episode, Taylor, Ryan, Graham, and Joe teamed up to tackle your lovely inquiries. You can find the full list of questions that we tackled down below:

1) At the Euros this summer, England brought on a couple of players specifically to take penalty kicks in the shootout against Italy. It, uh, didn’t work. Are there any examples of this being a good strategy?

2) In what parts of the world are beach soccer and futsal most popular? And will arena soccer ever become as popular again as it was in the early 1980s?

3) Why don’t we use more data in our analysis of games?

4) How much money should we be putting in FC Sheriff to make it out of their Champions League group?

5) Every once in a while, you hear players and managers refer to other players by nicknames. Are there any interesting nicknames that stick out to us?

6) What's the difference between 'hero-ball' & 'taking the game by the scruff of the neck'?
