MMPod hosts Gabe Lezra and worst account on football twitter-nominee Om Arvind were on the Let’s Fix Football Podcast on Ballon d’Order this week to talk about The Financial Times’ article about Juventus’ Cristiano Ronaldo gamble (from a financial angle). 

Juventus is banking on a massive increase not just in their own publicity but in Serie A’s publicity and ability to market itself internationally--but how smart is that gamble? Is the “Cristiano Ronaldo effect” as pronounced as they think—and even if it is, can Juve take full advantage?

Also, FIFA dropped some new potential rules. They’re weird. They’re also really important.

Finally, on this clip they also talk about the ongoing soccer analytics revolution and the fact that some of the friving forces behind the movement are American.
