Episode 12! Off the back of a hectic transfer deadline finale, the USMNT's wobbly start to the qualifying campaign, Tammy Abraham's explosive start for Roma, and more--our duo sat down to produce our longest intro yet.

Welcome back folks. It's episode 11. Amidst the rosy return of fans to stadiums, worldwide, Will leads a discussion as to whether this is truly a delightful thing to witness--or if there are in fact mischievous downsides, lurking in the shadows, to playing in front of an audience.

Episode 9! The boys are back with an ironic, somber vengeance.

The boys are back from the dead! Episode 7 baby! Yeehaw!

Episode 5! Let's talk about branding, baby! This week, Martin leads an exceedingly open-ended discussion on the recent wave of clubs making aesthetic tweaks to storied badges.

Episode 4! Crime and punishment edition. Today, Will poses the question of whether yellow cards in football actually do what they're intended to do.

Th…
 
Episode 3! We're back at it again. This week, Martin leads a discussion inspired by a previous piece hung in the Touchline Theory Museum: "Why the Hail Mary Fails in our Football".

We're back! In this second (and shorter) edition of The Touchline Theory Soccer Podcast, Will spearheads a discussion with Martin on a dying breed of player: the one-trick pony.
