For the past few years, I have put together this fun article to compare America’s favorite sports league, the National Football League (NFL), and the world’s favorite league, the UEFA Champions League (UCL). The original idea for this exercise was to help get my friends who aren’t soccer fans into the sport by giving them an easier way to understand the biggest club competition on the planet. So with each league featuring 32 teams broken up into eight groups of four teams apiece, the following are the comparisons between each NFL Division and Champions League Group.
It was an interesting week in the world of soccer, and the Upper 90 Soccer Show covered just about everything. From Paris Saint-Germain making a huge waves in the European summer transfer market, Chelsea captain John Terry being cleared of racially abusing QPR’s Anton Ferdinand (brother of Manchester United’s Rio Ferdinand), plenty of transfer rumors and big news concerning DC United.
The regular crew of Robert Bode, Austin Sanders and Justin McMahan are back together on this episode of the Upper 90 Soccer Show, and they are joined by their favorite guest in the world, US Soccer Hall of Famer and Fox Soccer Channel analyst Eric Wynalda.
This time on the Upper 90 Soccer Show, Robert Bode and fill-in hosts Brendan Darr and Scott Graham take a look back at the wild final matchday of the Barclay’s Premier League, with Manchester City dramatically hoisting their first BPL trophy and their first top-flight title since 1968.
