The first matches of the 18/19 Champions League are in the books, and there were some stunners, some thrillers, and some snoozers. Now, Hunter (8-8) and Zander (10-6) are here to lay it all out for you. (Those numbers are how their picks fared, FYI.)
The EPL (and all of European football) is back after their first international break and Hunter & Zander tell you how it all shook out. Then, they go over UCL Match Day 1 action coming to you on Tuesday and Wednesday, revealing their intensely thought-out picks.
Here comes some more picks! Hunter went 10-6 and Zander went 8-8, but his were old picks. That does cause some confusion today, but they make it through the whole week, what happened in fantasy football last week, and hit on Some News Items.
In our first remote recording in a good bit, Hunter sounds like a robot. He & Zander talk about the USMNT friendlies against Brazil & Mexico, which Zander attended as a credentialed member of the media for the MMITM & FBR for the first time. Then, they predict the upcoming EPL slate and cover some kicks.
Something is back this week, & we all know what it is, so there is no point in wasting your time by saying it. Hunter & Zander chat about it and things get tense. Then, we lighten up with a Segment Segment of Q’s from Youse & Screenshot Rundown.
The NFL kicks off tomorrow and Hunter & Zander have the picks to beat all picks. Then, and it’s definitely not because they couldn’t think of a real topic, they go unfiltered for a few and wrap up the ep with a Segment Segment of Pod O’ Beef & Q’s from Youse.
Aaaaaaaaand just like we all thought, Watford is sitting pretty in third with full points from four matches and United is in tenth. Also, there is some big news around the “offices” here at MMITM/FBR, the USMNT has some key friendlies coming up, and FIFA is giving out an award to someone.
There was so much football this weekend and the NFL hasn’t even started yet. Hunter and Zander tried their best to drink from the fire hose and run through all of the notable things of the weekend, even some of the juicier NFL cuts, trades, and contracts.
The UEFA Champions League Group Stage drawing was today. Hunter and Zander sat down just after the event ended to parse out who has a shot at going through to the Round of 16. (Hint: Red Star is looking pretty shaky.)
So here’s the deal: we tried something and it is what it is. There will be other episodes, but this is the one for today. Hunter and Zander did a live Fantasy Football Draft and covered a few stories in the meantime. Check it out if you want.
Three weeks are in the EPL books and, if you didn’t already know, Liverpool is obviously running away with it. I mean, why even try now? Also, Man United has bailed Arsenal out of the hot seat among the big six by being in total disarray, a bunch of USMNT guys got into action as the Bundesliga kicked off, and Puma’s new release is kinda weird.
Don’t be put off by the title, this is a fun ep. Hunter and Zander bounce the conversation all over the place. It was just kinda hard to pick out what the sections were actually supposed to cover. They end up talking about sandwiches and Chick-fil-a in the NBA section. The Seg Seg includes Club Irrelevant, Pod O’ Beef, and Q’s from Youse.
Today is one of those days that is kind of hard to encapsulate. Hunter and Zander definitely talk about the things in the episode title, but the route from A to B is anything but straight. Then, they wrap up with a Segment Segment of 5 Rules To Live By: Winging It, Peaks & Lows: Moving, & Q’s From Youse.
Whew. Hunter got steamed in this one, some real hot takes. He and Zander started off by improving the “Deathmatch in the Desert” between Tiger and Phil, checked the AP Top 25, reviewed their trip to a Colts game, and then did a huge Segment Segment of Pod O’ Beef, the new Overrated Opinions, and Q’s from Youse.
The boys are deeply sorry about being a day late, but they are back to bring you the sweet, sweet soccer/football content you’ve come to know and love. Match Day 2 brought a few surprises and some great matches. Hunter and Zander are here to break them, some USMNT news, and some boot releases all down.
Today on the pod, Hunter and Zander tackle some intense Q’s from Youse, talk about the Man City doc that just came out on Amazon Prime, and hit up a Seg Seg of Club Irrelevant and a new one, D’ja Hear About This?
Well, Hunter and Zander are on their own now, just like the good ole days of a month ago. They keep things humming with a Screenshot Rundown, a new segment called, MMITM: Unfiltered, and a Segment Segment of VGRPRFYBM, 5 Rules to Live By: Attending a Sporting Event, and Peaks & Lows of Autumn.
Today is Grant’s last day in studio. *collective awww* But Hunter and Zander send him off in style with Q’s from Youse, a “Hey, We Just Watched This!” of Hard Knocks, & a new segment called Hot Debate. (Not totally sold on that last segment title.)
Welcome one and all to the brand new FBRcast – the official soccer/football-only podcast of Football Boot Review! Come and listen to Hunter and Zander break down the week that was in European football, with a particular focus on the EPL.
Zander is finally back from vacation, so the guys can get back to work. They go over some news they missed, let the episode get kidnapped by their impromptu interview guest, and talk some golf, but mostly beef it up in the last segment.
Zander and Grant somehow persevered through another episode without Hunter’s guiding presence. They tackle some Q’s from Youse, grind out some Cinema Rules to Live By, and they explore their Peaks and Lows of eating in and eating out.
Hunter is out sick again, but that doesn’t slow Zander and Grant down. They probably worked too hard on this, but they picked every single game of this NFL season and reveal their results. They basically tell you exactly how the season will go. You might as well not even watch a single game. Spoiler Alert, I guess.
Whoa. Grant got on three episodes in a row? How’d that happen? Whatever. Today, Hunter, Zander, & Grant talked about a nature doc they just watched, break down Super Mario Odyssey, and do a huge Segment Segment with Q’s from Youse, Peaks & Lows: Elementary School, & 5 Rules to Live By: College.
When the hunter is away, the prey will play. Ok. Maybe it’s not as dramatic as that, but Zander & Grant pull off an episode without Hunter today. They do a Screenshot Rundown, Grant interviews Zander, & the two talk about their Peaks and Lows with pets.
Grant’s back! So, that can only mean good things for this ep. Today, Hunter, Zander, & Grant do a Screenshot Rundown, debut a new segment, 5 Rules to Live By, regarding roadtrips, and reveal their Peaks & Lows: This Summer.
In today’s episode, Hunter & Zander break down the news of the day that they deem important, talk about the movie, Ex Machina, and try to predict some of the best and worst things about the upcoming NFL season.
Things are a little slow, news-wise, but that doesn’t stop us! Hunter and Zander talk about the various ongoing contract disputes, possible shoe deals, and waning off-seasons. Then, in the Segment Segment, they hit Pod O’ Beef, Peaks & Lows, and a new segment, Club Irrelevant.
We are back from our break! Hunter and Zander spend a bunch of time going through what they missed during the past few weeks. Considering the World Cup is almost over, NBA Free Agency has mostly shaken out, and summer has more behind us than ahead, that is a lot of stuff. They also debut a new segment and the new and improved Segment Segment. Continue reading 25. Mega-Sized Return from a Break – 7/13/2018→
The World Cup is in full swing and the last matches of the group stage are upon us. There is a lot still undecided and some tournament favorites are in deep trouble.

The first round of group games are over and we were not disappointed. A lot of good soccer went on and a lot of good goals were had.

World Cup, NBA Offseason, & Pokémon – 6/19/2018→
The USWNT and US Soccer settled their wage dispute and CONCACAF is talking about a three country bid for the 2026 World Cup. Hunter and Zander have some feelings about this and let them be known in this episode. Check it out.
Wow. It’s been a good bit since we have had a podcast and a lot has happened in the world… but we are ignoring all of it and focusing in on the chaotic college football Saturday that was November 12th. Half of the top ten teams lost this past weekend and the College Football Playoff is in turmoil. How will it all shake out? Well, we have some ideas.
On a sad day for sports, Hunter and Zander remember two passed legends. Then, they move on to the recently finished Copa America and the currently progressing Euro 2016. Also, they talk about muffins and cooking.
Zander and Hunter reflect on the fantastic night of sports that was June 16th. The USMNT and the NBA Finals both continue onwards and the guys are here to help you understand what just happened and how great LeBron was.
In the second part of a two part session, Hunter and Zander go over the wealth of international soccer that has taken place during their brief hiatus in the form of the Copa America and UEFA Euro 2016.
