As an experiment, we at Karfan.is are going to put out english spoken podcasts every month about the Domino’s men’s and women’s leagues. Ideas and improvements to this show are welcomed and we ask that you send them to karfan@karfan.is.

In our second podcast about the Mens Premier League, sponsored by Domino’s Pizza, we are joined by Axel Örn Sæmundsson to discuss the first four rounds and how crazy the league has started out. We talk about Breiðabliks rough start and how Skallagrímur looks better than we expected as well as Tindastóls dominance.

Interesting stories abound in these first few weeks and we try and touch on as many of them as we can. Notable players and performances are discussed, coaches, the trade deadline and we do some hot takes even though we’re only four rounds in. We go over our predictions from the first round and predict this next one. In the end we predict the next round and mention some favorable and unfavorable matchups. Enjoy.

Hosts: Helgi Hrafn Ólafsson, David Patchell and Axel Örn Sæmundsson
