Number 2 in our series of Premier League toilet paper sent by Jason Kamminga from Korea who writes:
"Due to Korea’s love and loyalty to Park Ji Sung, Man United have been the most popular club in the nation. Many "authorized" products have been churned out for years. Some slightly less authorized products along with them. As a Liverpool fans, this soft-ply brings me tears of joy, and sums up David Moyes season so far. Love your podcast fellas! From Jason Kamminga. An American in Korea."
The Men in Blazers revel with Arsenal and fear for Manchester United. Sir Ian Darke makes a guest appearance to confer an air of nobility.

Brilliant. RVP sent this photo of himself kissing the league trophy to Piers Morgan.

Sir Alex’s retirement marks time for journalists to bake him a hairdryer shaped cake.
The Battle for Third and Fourth is now officially under way. On Monday, Manchester United and their ragtag ensemble wrapped up their 20th league title in impressive fashion (move over, Don Nelson, the mad scientist officially resides at Old Trafford). Still, few headlines were devoted to Sir Alex & Co.’s accomplishment. Earlier in the weekend, Liverpool’s Luis Suarez once again proved there was still plenty of crazy left in England’s top flight when he gnawed on Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic in the course of a 2-2 draw. In this week’s pod, Michael and Roger review the implications for Liverpool and their American owners as well as what’s in store for Suarez’s 72 pearly whites.
The Men in Blazers revel, as always, in their weekly telegrams from GFOPs across these fine lands, inquiring about footballers’ peculiar sweating habits and how to best consume a midgame pint or five, and end the pod with breaking news about the Men in Blazers National Team. Courage.

It was a snowy weekend of mid-season football in the Premier League, with the weather providing a cleansing effect for Clint Dempsey in Tottenham’s home meeting with Manchester United. After close to 93 minutes of disappointing form, Deuceface slotted home the equalizer as America, Andre Villas-Boas, Manchester City, and Under Armour all rejoiced. In this week’s Men in Blazers podcast, Michael Davies and Roger Bennett review the title race that’s back on, only because it was never really off. But it’s not only the glory of the top of the table that’s up for discussion. The Blazers also consider the relegation battle and bid sacked Southampton manager Nigel “Happyface” Adkins farewell.
To add a modicum of intelligent insight, Fox Soccer’s very own Rob Stone drops in to recap the Brek Shea saga and shed light on what life is like these days for a soccer- and cheerleader-lovin’ American at the network that gave us Cleatus the dancing robot.
Normal service has resumed in the English Premier League. The sleeping giants — Chelsea, Manchester United, and Manchester City — have all reclaimed the top three spots in the table. And why shouldn’t they, with the season being 2/11ths over, after all. But as much as the on-field drama is subject for discussion in this week’s pod, Michael and Roger also consider the continued off-field troubles of a certain Russian-owned superclub.
Next, productivity on the pod takes a nosedive after welcoming the creative and strategic genius behind the EA Sports FIFA video game franchise, executive producer (and fellow Brit) David Rutter, for a quick chat. The Blazered Men discuss the newest features of FIFA 13, its impact on America’s sporting interests, the future of video games, and, of course, Duran Duran.
