AFR Voice Ep.6 - The Champions League Returns
It’s that time of year again – the nights are drawing in, you’re wrestling with the decision of whether to turn the heating on or not, and it’s once again acceptable to have a piping-hot soup for lunch. This can only mean one thing – the Champions League is back.
In this week’s AFR Voice we’ll be taking a look at the runners and riders, potential dark horses, and favourites for this year’s instalment of Europe’s premier club competition, and why it could be the best Champions League EVER (you heard it here first).
We’ll then be discussing the Rainbow Laces Movement, which aims to change attitudes and make football more gay-friendly, as it looks to tackle what is still a huge taboo in the game and gain traction at clubs around the UK this weekend.
Then it’s onto World Cup qualification heartbreak for Cape Verde, before speaking to ESPN FC and AFR writer Dermot Corrigan in Madrid about Gareth Bale’s debut, Cristiano Ronaldo’s new deal, and what we can expect from Real Sociedad in Europe this season.
As per usual our cover art is made up of our favourite #whereisfootball photo of the week, and this week the honour goes to this sublime snap by Instagram user @aveba in Marseille, France.
