About This Show
Soccer takes itself too seriously. Everything from pre-match handshakes to the very name of the sport (soccer? football? futbol? calcio?) gets scrutinized and debated. We’re here to pop that balloon and give the beautiful game the podcast that it truly deserves: One that's childish, nonsensical, and occasionally funny. Hear weird news, comedy sketches, infighting, and merciless takedowns from the writers and editor of the award-winning blog DirtyTackle.net. From the pitch, to the stands, to the dregs of FIFA headquarters, no one escapes the boot.

"Kaka Does The Reverse Italian"
5 days ago
We've got dirty tackles for wantaway players who fake injuries and illness (looking at you Philly Cootz and Alexis Sanchez), anyone who gives Kaka a red card, and the most egregious half and half shirt of all time. In addition, the president of Huddersfield Town entices us to visit the home of the Premier League's newest darlings, Bob Bradley's neighbor stops by, there are Life Ref rulings on when the transfer window should close and Diego Costa's existence, and we promote the world's best new product: The Transfer Fee Generator! Finally, there's another round of TRANSFERMAGEDDON with Paulinho's move to Barcelona, PSG's pursuit of Kylian Mbappe, and Gylfi Sigurdsson at Everton, and even a bit of Jonny Evans intrigue. To hear our bonus "DT Extra Time" segment, contribute and join the ET Gang at patreon.com/dirtytackle! This week we're talking about Serie A's return to glory, the first round of Premier League action, and FIFA 18's new "Mino Mode."
