Happy August, and welcome to Episode 45 of the Yellow Card Podcast! The Yellow Card Podcast is brought to you by Couch Guy Sports, and sponsored by Exogun! For today’s episode, the crew had plenty to cover. Between international soccer, MLS and European transfers, the soccer world is heating up in the last full month of summer.
The first topic of discussion for this week’s episode was the Tokyo Olympics. After outlasting the Netherlands in a thrilling penalty shootout in the quarterfinals, the USWNT has a big match against Canada in the semis. The USWNT is very familiar with all three teams joining them in the semifinals. Canada is a fellow CONCACAF member, while Australia and Sweden both joined the USA in Group G.
Another chapter, another challenge 😤

The next topic was our hometown team, the New England Revolution. The Revs are flying high, and are currently boasting the league’s best record through 17 games. The boys praised key players like Matt Turner, Carles Gil, Gustavo Bou and Adam Buksa, who have all been instrumental to the team’s success this year.
Next up, the crew turned their attention to the EPL Transfer Window. There have been some major signings already this summer, and Premier League teams are not done yet. With names like Jack Grealish being floated around, could we see another huge move before the end of the window?
To finish up the episode, Diego, Chris and Andrew drafted Fantasy EPL teams ahead of the approaching season. Did we leave anyone out? Are there any sleepers who are flying under the radar? Be sure to let us know on Twitter (@PodcastCard).
