Lynsey Hooper, Kait Borsay and Hayley McQueen are back to give you an extra football fix during the international break, on The Offside Rule (We Get It!). England has been in the news but for once, not for the shoddy football – the country’s jaw dropped when Big Sam lost his job as part of a huge expose. Gareth Southgate is performing admirably so far, but problems run much deep for underperforming England than the managerial situation. So, how do you solve a problem like England? We explore the team’s weak points, including mentality and form, and how we can address them. Continuing with the international theme, we’ve watched a lot of world football in the last week and seen some unlikely names feature. China is becoming an end-of-career payday for Premier League stars, but in which other unexpected leagues have we seen some big names? Finally, Bob Bradley made history this week as the first American to manage in the Premier League, a league that is no stranger to American exports. We look at some of the biggest football trailblazers from the USA, including a World Cup winner and a plethora of goalkeepers!
