Ryan, Graham, and Joe are here to answer your listener questions! Hurrah! From a new World Cup tournament for the nearly-rans, to the intricacies behind obtaining coaching badges, we have you covered!

-Instead of a World Cup every two years, what about a 2nd World Cup with nations that just missed the main World Cup?

-Do you think that the new Newcastle owners are being overly outwardly ambitious?

-What are coaching badges and how do you obtain them?

-Why aren’t South American club soccer leagues more popular in the USA?

-Why did they change the offside rule to negate an offside if a defender makes a defensive play on the ball?

-The US plays its home matches all over the country. In England, all or nearly all of their home matches are at Wembley. Is one or the other more common in international soccer, particularly among the best teams?

-I heard that many Rangers fans would rather cheer for England than Scotland (and many Celtic fans cheer for Ireland). Is there any truth to this?
