John Oliver Interviewed By David Letterman On Topic of Soccer


World Soccer Talk’s favorite mainstream pundit and comedian John Oliver was on the Late Show With David Letterman last night to talk about his favorite topic — professional soccer.

Oliver, host of Last Week Tonight With John Oliver on HBO, was the man who brilliantly summed up everything that is morally wrong with FIFA. After being featured on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine where he discussed his dream of becoming a professional footballer, Oliver took time out of his busy schedule to educate Letterman on the British class system that is used in British football.

While Oliver’s jokes are funny as usual, don’t expect that the information shared will educate mainstream America on how the leagues work especially when Oliver can’t even remember how many teams are in the Premier League. Such is life for a Liverpool supporter who’s usually only looking at the top of the table!

    Looks like 2 guys that have no idea what they are talking about.

    Hilarious. His disdain for United and all things Red Devil is epic. Certainly worthy of an hour long special for his take on football…. How ’bout it, Gaffer?

    His HBO show is superb. Very funny man with a serious side.

    The men in Blazers may know more about football than John, but John is funnier

    Funny man. A little surprised he thinks there are 19 teams in the PL. Just seems like a weird number to fall on.

      His brain refuses to accept the existence of Man Utd.
