League One Fun – Episode 89: Season Wrap Spectacular

Season Wrap Up

While there may not have been a USL League One Championship this year, there are plenty to wrap up. We provide awards and notorieties for players who stood out in this bangers only league. Whether it was goal scoring, defense, goal keeping, or creating chances, Ira and Jason give out awards to the players who stood out this season and impacted the league the most. Including a debate between the two best players of the league and who deserved MVP. A debate they just can’t wrap up.

League One Fun Best XI

The duo also gives their best XI lineups of the year and talk the latest news, a retiring player, why the final wasn’t played, and whether or not it was the right decision.

Thank you everyone for an entertaining season and we will (hopefully) see you soon!
