Genetics, Götterdämmerung and making America great again

Oct 09, 2017, 03:01 PM

On the second of three special and indeed unavoidable international editions of The Totally Football Show, AC Jimbo has Michael Cox, Jack Lange and Rafa Honigstein for company to gloss over two stunningly dull England games in order to discuss Gordon Strachan’s bizarre comments about genetics and Dick Advocaat’s unfortunate attempts to tempt the hand of fate.

We’re also joined by George Quraishi - editor of the extremely fine Howler magazine - about USA’s 4-0 hammering of Panama, and Stefán Ágústsson tells us about the excitement in downtown Reykjavík as Iceland stand on the brink of qualification for their first ever World Cup.

Also discussed: the backlash against the Messi backlash; why German club sides are having such a rough time of it in Europe this season; and Ravel Morrison makes his mark in Mexico.
