Getting to Know the English Premier League - *RERUN*


As James takes a break for "Paternity Leave", this is the second episode as part of our brief "ReRun" series.  Be sure to follow @brosandblokes on the social medias for his key updates!

NOTES FROM ORIGINAL RECORDING:

In today's episode, James shares his in-depth knowledge of England's most popular sport and league - soccer (or Football as locals call it) and the English Premier League.

We start with basic information on the league's format and points accumulation then look at the main teams to look out for, some significant rivalries and some of the key players (from England and from other countries.) We'll make comparisons in sport fandom between the US and Europeans and how the English Premier League has grown in popularity in the US over the last decade.
