In this episode, we ask whether the old adage—it’s not what you know, it’s who you know—holds true in soccer. Do family connections really make life easier, or can it be a burden when you’re the offspring of a star striker? Paul Dalglish, son of legendary Liverpool striker Kenny, answers these questions and more. Robert Andrew Powell investigates what growing up in the game means for a new generation of US soccer players. And Alan Black gives us his own take on that most sacred of family bonding rituals—the trip to see your first match.

Note: Dalglish is now the head coach of the Austin Aztex.
