League One Fun – Episode 31 – Week 16 “We Need VAR”

Jason continues to travel the world, bringing #SpicyTakes to those in great need of them. Luckily League One Fun was able to get a loan from River City 93! Elliot joins Ira talking about league news, match reviews, match previews (Top of the Table Derby this week in Frisco, TX), and best of all this week… listener questions.

Elliot’s #spicytake is to bring VAR to all levels of professional soccer – while Ira tries (and apparently fails) to explain why Jason’s #spicytake that “possession is a trash stat” is a misinterpretation of the data (as any good Economist would).

The gang can be found on twitter @league1fun, Jason @ homesweetsoccer, Ira @irajersey and Elliot @Rivercity93
