Ryan Bailey, Taylor Rockwell and Graham Ruthven convene to discuss an eventful weekend for the beautiful game!

0.00 - Marine vs. Tottenham: The Magic of the FA Cup was lightly sprinkled on Merseyside as eighth-tier Marine hosted Jose Mourinho’s Spurs. It was as uncompetitive as you’d imagine, but the event had plenty of highlights and quirks.

21.13 - RB Leipzig vs. Dortmund: The East Germans passed up on their chance to leapfrog Bayern Munich with a home loss to BVB. Once again, Erling Haaland was the star of the show.

43.38 - Ajax vs. PSV: In what may have been the most entertaining match of the weekend, the honors were split evenly between the Netherlands’ two biggest sides. And the show was nearly stolen by a West Ham flop!

54.25 - Roma vs. Inter Milan: The Giallorossi earned a point with a late equalizer, as Antonio Conte appeared to drop the ball with his substitutions.
