"alexander zinchenko" Discussed on The Lead

"To know him. He came with a fantastic reputation from aix, but Ajax is a very, very different club to Manchester United. But axis has probably been over recent years one of the best run clubs in Europe in the way that they've done their recruitment, very, very stable environment. And ten hag's reputation really sort of improved when iak got to the semifinals of the Champions League. I think it was 2019. So ten out of reputation has been growing and growing. But he's arrived in united and I think he knew it was a tough job. I don't think he thought it was going to be quite this. Eric, how do you assess your first game in charge in the Premier League? Disappointed result? It's all about result. But also we know this is a process and after his first game against Brighton, which Manchester United lost two one at home, he described it as a hell of a job. That he's got on his hands on Saturday after the Brentford game. You know, he was calling his players naive. He said their performance was rubbish. This is quite clear. It is rubbish. And the sport and we need higher standards than that. That's clear. He then had the players in on Sunday morning, they arrived back in Manchester at 11 p.m. on Saturday night. He had them in at the training ground on what was a scheduled day off actually to run because he'd been so angered by statistics that showed Brentford had run 13.8 kilometers cumulatively as a team further than Manchester United. And as a result, he made every single player united run 13.8 kilometers. Wow. So that he could ingrain into them that that level of application wouldn't be accepted. It's a very, very unusual thing. For a coach at the very highest level to be doing, but I think it underlines how alarmed he's been by what he's getting out of these players early on and he's really looking to draw us to draw a line under it. I think he's also been disappointed with the recruitment that Manchester United have been able to do. We need more players and so everyone knows where we are looking for and we have our targets and I think it was clear to most observers that man united needed a right back holding central midfielder. They needed a right winger and they needed a striker. And united so far, they've bought two defenders from the Dutch league, both of whom were recommendations made by ten haar and then Christian Eriksen, another player who has previously played for aix, who they took on a free transfer. But for a club at the very top level, it seems a little bit strange that they're relying on basically players that ten haggers either coached or has walked very up close in the Dutch league. And the other player that they've spent pretty much the entirety of this summer obsessing over 20 diong from Barcelona, united agreed a fee many weeks ago now. I think it was around €85 million for Frankie de Jong, but they've been unable to persuade him to come, even though he'd worked with ten haggard Ajax. So while it's meant over the past week as man united have become at least from the outside, started to look pretty desperate in the transfer market. Well, and I guess if there is a silver lining here for men united fans to latch on to, it's that we are only two games into this season. It's still very young. What would a successful turnaround look like for this team? What would need to happen? Well, I think they can take some hope in. So arsenal, for example, last season began the season with three defeats in a row. What they really need is like two or three wins in a row that are performances to just make people like me put up ends down for a couple of a couple of weeks and everything just calms down and you can breathe again as a football club because at the moment it's a bit like someone said to me the other day Eric hen hag is trying to build an airplane while he flies. I think that's a pretty good way of putting it, trying to learn to swim with our armbands and if it's a pretty difficult situation for him. Well, lastly here, Adam, looking at this big picture, Ken men united compete with the likes of Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea, and other top teams across Europe that have, in many cases, huge financial backing. Can this club return to the lofty levels that they want to occupy? European football is kind of rigged in many ways to favor those historically great clubs. Manchester United's revenues are still huge. Man united brand is still incredibly powerful. They're still getting huge sponsorship deals. There is a point at which that will level off. We're not at that point. Nowhere near that point. And as I said, the top of the show, Manchester United is still spend more than most clubs. This summer, for example, man city have had to sell quite a lot of players to bring money in, you know, players like Gabriel Jesus and Alexander zinchenko, they've sold to arsenal for really good money. Liverpool sell players. Barcelona are having to sell half the inventory of the club, right? To bring players in. So man united can compete financially where they aren't competing at the moment is in terms of judgment and strategy and execution. Ed Woodward, who had been there as chief executive since 2013, he left the club at the end of last year. The new chief executive Richard Arnold, who had previously been working in the club's commercial operation, has been promoted to CEO. People speak a bit better about him, but ultimately, you know, this is his first transfer window and he's put a lot of faith in the football director John murtaugh and it's not worked out. They are on track properly to have their most calamitous transfer window since Ferguson left the club. And that's saying something. So yeah, I mean, financially, they can compete, but I'm not sure they've got it between their ears at the moment to compete. And you have a big asteroid coming into view on Monday, which is Liverpool. There's going to be fam protests again on Monday night towards the owners towards the running of the club. And if you get another resort where Manchester United players just do not turn up and do not apply themselves, it's going to be really, really sticky. I think for a lot of united fans at the moment, they're struggling to see a way out of it. Well, Adam, you've painted a picture of a club in shambles that might still have a sliver of hope. I think that's fair. Thanks so much for joining us today and breaking this all down. Pleasure, thanks guys. A few hours after we recorded this interview, Adam reported that Manchester United has agreed to a four year deal with Brazilian midfielder, casemiro of Real Madrid, as of late Thursday night, the deal has not gone through, but the club expects it too soon. For more of Adam Crafton's coverage of Manchester United and all things soccer, go to the athletic dot com. From wondery, I'm out of skeleton. Thanks for listening, and we'll see you next week.

"Performance from debutante William saliba helped alleviate the stress inherited from last season's Friday night football opening day loss to Brentford, which only got mentioned about once every 5 minutes. It was that case of the past bubbling in the air ahead of this one. That memory of arsenal's last year opening game. At the delirious Brentford. But here they talk against Vieira, that old arsenal legend to the field, a very different creature. Arsenal a $148 million spent, Alexander zinchenko and Gabrielle Jay-Z starting a live from the office as if. Arteta unleashed you'll never walk alone in that changing room with the volume turned up to 11. Whenever Arteta did, it seemed to work, his team set to person. Everywhere. It's like there were two of him, one on the Flank, one in the middle, flitting in to the Jacques space, and Jesus had one incredible run. You know when Ronaldo came through and everyone forgot about the original Brazilian Ronaldo. Yeah. J two's is playing as if he thinks, you know, that might happen for him. Yeah, weirdly. Yeah, I'm not sure that that's completely accurate. Credit palace, well organized for 8 hours. They kept their opponents off the board at home. Arsenal have reportedly been giving an incredible amount of work on the training ground to their set piece play and it paid off inside 20 minutes, corner routine, corner smack so deep, and charging and blind sign knocked it back against the box. I don't know what it was with the palace defenders just mesmerized by his Ukrainian big air. I don't know. I think more Wilfried Zaha just completely failed to track his run to the back post. I mean, it was almost an excusable. Martinelli and marked and challenged not the ball home. First goal of the Premier League season, got a credit, your palace, the goal seemed to lead to them upping their intensity, that new Boyd the core led the way to arsenal's press, joachim Anderson pinging crossfield passes all over the field, no Connor Gallagher yes, but my God, palace in that cauldron. I'm pretty sure scientifically they play better once darkness is set in. Yeah, I think Steve parish has spoken to us about that on the pod before that is it sort of gets the second half of the position of the sun and the ends that they kick into and where their fans are located. I think they sort of they like trying to come back from goals later in the game. And palace, I think, looked good all day. I think it only made arsenals win more impressive because I thought palace offered quite a lot of resistance. Zaha charging it, Ben white, the superlative saliba back from a season of loan and Marseille. I think I had far more opportunities to show his quality than maybe he would have expected, needed an own goal from gui to prevent the anxiety kicking in, just say, Chris Richards would never at Austin Bundy D.C.. Screamed champions of August 5th, 2022. You'll never sing that. You know, long time arsenal observers do notice something a little bit different, of course, Arsenal fans themselves are getting delirious, but I think even more objective observers and even people like me who are subjective on the wrong way, they're the club I don't want to do, particularly well. But I've been very, very impressed with the arsenal in preseason. And I was very impressed with this arsenal victory because it took a lot of those qualities which arsenal don't always find a way to win when you're not playing particularly well when the opposition are offering. Tough, tough resistance, and I thought arsenal went and eked out a really good victory against a very good team. And I'd say man city obviously West Ham, as I said earlier, give them credit. This was a two nil win at West Ham who were very good. I think similarly, there's two nil win at Crystal Palace on opening day. I think this was a great sign of things to come arsenal. What dark now arsenal had been dogged all summer by reports at a Premier League player in his late 20s had been arrested by police on rape allegations in North London, which Internet rumors linked very much to an arsenal player, libel laws in England, prevent the English media from naming, but let's just say Thomas parte was booed every single time he touched the ball and police investigations are still ongoing, but a banner was flowing, oversell Hurst park in protest, the violence against women. I think the organizers are named level up a community group, campaigning for justice in the UK. And this is the amazing thing. It was paid for by Arsenal fans who want the club to lead the way on this issue. Inside the Premier League, can God bless Arsenal fans the club needs to listen to them. Also can be such a much needed positive voice on this agonizing issue. Cranky family, step up for once. Come on, do the right thing. Tottenham four Southampton one spurs campaign a glory, look to have hit an early soundtrack when James ward prowse volleyed home, a cross from the edge of the box, only 12 minutes into the match. The Tottenham response was comprehensive, though, treating Southampton like a ketchup packet and tossing them aside, goals from Ryan sesame on Eric dyer, cliche, and a Southampton own goal saw the match finish for one. We saw last week on amp about Tottenham being true top four contenders, whether they are top one contenders that will be a question for the first half of this season. And on the evidence of one game, my new evidence, my God, some statement victory come from behind, clench fist, deliver to Ralph Hassan huddles boys who had the temerity to take the lead via a crafty James wood pro, banger, but it proved me to be a punch in a mouth which woke up the inner Italian bagby inside of Antonio Conte's mob and the rest was just a dejan cooler ski inspired slaughter, so many positives for Tottenham Davis that the first two goals were scored by defenders forever prodigy, Ryan session yon's first Premier League goal ever and the direwolf God to see him back. I think he's not scored in three long years. They've just across the field. Great players doing great things for Tottenham and the good ones being coached upwards. Yeah, and yeah, that diagonal was fantastic that sesame on goal was fantastic and not having to rely on Harry Kane and youngman's son. And just the quality of the people they've bought in, you know, when parasitic trotted on at the end, I'd actually forgotten the Paris that had come to Tottenham. Probably one of the least talked about major signings of the off season and Paris is coming on. You start to look at the depth of that squad and some of the quality they've got a very, very deserved, large victory against a team I should say that I think are in trouble. You mentioned parasitic. It was a great day for Tottenham and the greatest part of it was that Conte was able to start sending me this big signings like perisic bissouma Clement longley and Jed spent on the bench so that he can ease them in Charleston available from now on he served as suspension and so spurs had opening day glory, but there is still clearly so much depth to come, but my God, kulusevski, delivering the coup de graph with a casual flourish. How did you vent us let him go, what a player is passing is deceptive speed. His sense of space. What a difference maker, that human being is. Yeah, no, it's a brilliant, brilliant footballer, with sparkle in any league and on any team within any of those leagues. What a difference a year makes this time last season. Remember Harry Kane miserable are done new now, the manager, club shambles, how we laughed, Conte, almost always does the laughing last and it is the high pitched, demented laugh of Anton chigger in No Country for Old Men, post sadistic cattle prod induced savagery, Premier League be warned, but we missed the big news the headline for this game, David.

"Be the first, certainly won't be last. And so maybe burning bridges and leaving situations is he can get time heals all wounds, right? This one I think will be an open-source for a while. We'll see, I guess what happens to Byron in the future may have something to do with it. If they continue to be great, then it might make it easier to stomach his departure for people. If they really struggle, maybe the bitterness will kind of crystallize. There are not that many fish in the tank. In the Bundesliga right now, that makes me think, it's in Europe where you will see what happens. Let's see, we mentioned going from uve to Bayern, €67 million, by the way. Yeah. Significant to that juve have made a move the other way in coming. They picked up Syria, defender of the season, lice and bremer from crosstown rivals, Torino. I watched some videos today of him versus lavish and a couple other premier strikers and he looks really good. He looks really, really good. And he feels like an old school defender makes a lot of blocks. Cuts things out. He's physically strong. He's not afraid of a duel. I think that's a good bit of business for you. Who seemed to be more practical in the way they're building a squad now? And then one other one we wanted to mention, I'm sure others have happened. It's hard to get to all of them. But Alexander zinchenko going from Manchester City to arsenal in a move that I really, really like. Who doesn't like this move? I don't know one that man city fans, because I think they really liked xinchen. It was seconds away from him being at wolves two and a half, three years ago. The deal was done and he didn't want to go. He told Guardiola, I don't want to leave. And he was rewarded for staying around. I would say, because he was a guy who could slot in at left back, he could slide in and midfield. He saw versatile. And that's going to be hugely important for our tech. First of all, he knows about what our Ted is style of management is style of coaching is going to be. So it's an easy fit for him to slide into North London. I would think. And I hear it's in it because I love Kieran Tierney. He's young enough that he can go on and have still a very fruitful and prosperous career, but his three seasons at arsenal. He's not being dependable from an injury standpoint. Right. And zinchenko can slot in this slot in at left back. Now I'm pretty sure watching his performances for the Ukraine. For the Ukraine, for Ukraine. I've heard both. I know. I feel weird though. You know, seen him play in midfield for Ukraine. Exclusively, pretty much. Yeah, but how good did he look as well? Now, almost every Premier League midfielder is going to be better than Scotland and is going to be better than the Welsh midfielder. But still though, he looks very comfortable in a multitude of roles, and that makes him a Swiss Army knife for Arteta. Yeah, now look, with ninja city, it was always hard for him to break through fully and be a first team player. He kind of had to rely on injuries or drop in form of somebody else. By chance. I think he got plenty of game considering he was on his way out. Well, look what happened in the final day of the season. When they were up against it and they turned to him, he came on at the half and was excellent in the second half, set up roger's goal. I saw the stat, he had a roughly a chance and a half created per 90 minutes over the course of last season. That's not bad for a guy, you know, playing a defense. 90% passing accuracy. Obviously that's going to be a little bit weighted in a player's favor who's playing in the Guardiola system. But still, these are things that arsenal will value. And how about this? I saw this on Sky Sports JJ. Asking a recent YouTube interview about the city squad. Fellow fullback Kyle walker put zinchenko in his top three most talented teammates with the ball. Ahead of de Bruyne, Phil Foden and gel cancelo. The quote was my top three years Riyad Mahrez and Bernardo Silva said walker. Two touches, head tennis, so good. Wow. And I think that was evidence in those internationals at the end of the season that we saw a plan as well. I wanted to mention kalidou kula Bali moving to Chelsea. That's been confirmed since the last podcast went out. And this is the move I like to move I would have loved four years ago. And it makes me think about Napoli and that really good Napoli team within senior and those guys who play it under Sari. I'm surprised. The team slowly broken up over the years. But I'm surprised how long it's taken and that kula Bali didn't move, move much quicker and much sooner from monopoly. And I wonder, I don't think it's too late. But I'm curious to see. I don't think I don't have that feeling about it. It's going to be a different type of defendant though. I think in the primarily. I mean, look, he's 31. Chelsea had to act having lost rotor, and who was who was excellent for them, probably a player they didn't want to lose, but he seemed motivated to go. And so it's already a position on the field where Chelsea probably needed an upgrade. I'm Christensen has gone as well, right? And depending on what you read, other defenders, versatile defenders, Alonzo, as pillar Quetta may be on their way out, like we just said to Barcelona, I'll believe it when I see it, but I've seen a lot already that needs to be believed this off season. So who's to say, that's not realistic as well. So you're right. I mean, losing rudiger gaining cooler Bali upgrade or downgrade. I think so too. I think

"After an equally phenomenal reach James own goal is spending most of his time off the blackjack tables briefing the press for more defensive signings. Yes, razors arrived latest arrival as you mentioned $41 million defensive wall Carly do cooler boy. The Senegalese known as K two with the 31 year old defender admitting he is, quote, very happy. Of course he's happy. He's about to play with the LeBron James of soccer. How are you feeling about it all David? Yeah, they need defenders. I mean, they seem to be in for a couple more seem to be letting broja go off to West Ham. It's nice. It's sort of like we've gone shopping in our closet a little bit as well. Conor Gallagher coming back from loan. I thought he sparkled in the game in Vegas, I think he looked very, very good. So who knows? But yeah, I think we're a little bit late in our preparation, particularly at the back. I am fascinated by these arrivals this transfer window like Lewandowski to boss alona. Huge money, Liverpool spent on most salads, new contract, and this move 31 year old suggesting that that old football adage that was really coined by arsene wenger, who refused to give long-term contracts to any player. Really want the state hit the 30s. I think 32 was his turning point, but that adage that players in their 30s are a waste for elite clubs to invest in because they can't be sold on. This just has not been borne out by the data, which is why so many of these clubs are giving big money for the big names at the big ages and my partner in European pod where we Smith had a great piece on this in The New York Times last week and we're going to pop it in my newsletter this afternoon where he wrote that in both the Champions League and Europe's major domestic competitions all the players when more aerial jewels complete more dribbles password greater accuracy if their central midfielders and school more goals more than twice as many players over age 30 now rank in the models of the best 150 players in the world that are prepared in those lists a decade ago. I mean, that is really, really fascinating. And as Rory writes, the data suggests very clearly David 30 not at all to see it used to be. There's hope for my long elusive U.S. international team debut yet, David. Yeah, there is and the U.S. are going to need some older players as well. Tapping across all sports, frankly, is, you know, with improved nutrition and fitness and data, you're seeing older athletes succeed everywhere. They're just doing lines of athletic greens and it's just thinking too long term dominant. By the way, every bully move, every bully everything, every bowly word. I love how right now the English media have to. I mean, it's their job. They have to completely lose their mind to every move every decision they're desperately trying to flesh out what to like and what to hate about this new bully era. I was kidding about the liking part. And right now he is speaking to people in football surprising a lot of people in the football world by taking part in every single meeting with every agent, every important decision making meeting at the club he's there. This is going to be a lot more hands on than the rumor which era or say Stan Kroenke, it's still not clear to us that he knows that he owns ourselves football club, but one more American native interest, congratulations, devote Chelsea, have appointed an American Tom glick as a club's new president of business. Doing business. That's what he is. The president of doing business following the departures of grana sky, a Peter Burke and Peter check. I know Tom from his days in the city football group. He worked at NYCFC around its founding, which previously Manchester City's chief commercial and operating officer also chief executive Dolby county in the 2000s, and then president of the slightly effed up David tepper model Carolina Panthers until February this year. Your club Dave out it is getting more and more American by the day. How long until Christian politics dad gets a front office job. Yeah, we see what does he not have a front office job already? How can he not get on it? We'll get on Twitter, get on Twitter. Yeah, there's a lot of briefing of the press going on what I hear. There's just like people are not accustomed to this full on briefing of the press from the Chelsea front office. Do you think Billy's had any embarrassing workplace mishaps where he's been like in the owner's office and he's just turned around to his staff and said, what does this button do? And he pushes it by accident. And it's the one for shark tanks and stop executions. I know. It opens up the shark infested waters beneath coffin. Team ground. Yes. And he's like, what about this button? And like, oh, we'll keep this one. That's for the acid bath. We'll see. Okay, now rod to a team, you got to see in person Saturday night. Arsenal football club who have a lot to be optimistic about this off season, including the potential of another sky blue signing. Arsenal doing and this is hard for a long time listeners to believe I'm going to say this so much winning. So much winning, the charm city cup, slam that one. Into your trophy cabinet. If that's not good enough, it does sound like, oh, sorry on the brink of signing the truly quite excellent God, he was linked to Everton so briefly before he realized what Everton were and decided to take in new chat with his agent. Alexander zinchenko from Manchester City a gent from I believe we're actually only seen an n-th of his potential, you know, if you watched Ukraine in their World Cup playoffs, you realize just how much of a footballer there is in there as he ran that central midfield area and if he joins you got to see Arteta's arsenal slowly beginning to make a name for themselves as the best burger in town composed solely of scraps of discarded city fillet David. I mean, Arteta is really, really been aggressive in this transfer window and bringing in players who can play his way and play his new arsenal style. I love it. God, apparently he's coming in for a little Kevin De Bruyne at an early halland next, but two lovely pieces of news from us. As I said, so much bloody winning first, this morning they launched their black Jersey with a truly, truly fantastic. I found it incredibly moving a U.S. fan tribute video featuring none other than great friend of this pod Orlando gunna's Aston Mack. You might remember him. He's the Black Lives Matter activist that we featured in interview back in 2020 after he went on to the street to lead protests in Orlando Florida wearing an arsenal of wages. It's a fantastic story. A remarkable bloat to see him front and center with arsenal football club, let's just say few fans deserve the spotlight more great, great, great video Arsenal fans. It's on our Instagram page now. Watch it, marvel at it. And when they tweeted out, despite the small smattering of spurs fans who just impulsively compulsively have the right Finnish club under every single arsenal post. At that love to know these people are devoted. You know, the ones who write Finnish club or Finnish player or pennell do could never instinctively on anything, but this is just the kind of content everyone should say that and perhaps the biggest news big study huge study released last week in England.

"So here's a look at arsenal's business so far and it looks as though they could be bringing in, Alexander zinchenko, along with Gabriel Jesus, who we already know is in later manures with us. Bringing proven winners players who've been at city Cray players who have one title there. They have that winning mentality. Is this going to help arsenal's mentality to do? What's going to help the police? And I think that's the most important thing. You know, James jolly was asking him about the difficulty to get in the top four. Well, it wasn't that difficult last year because Tottenham made and Tottenham, as you know, the saints and really good players, this summer, but when Conti with any for no, this is difficult. Just because of the plane squad, it wasn't the greatest playing squad. But yet they managed to get in the top four and arsenal would have done if they didn't implode at the end. So it wasn't, I mean, in Chelsea fell away after Christmas and gave everybody else a chance. It's about mentality. He talks about the mentality. And I have an issue with that in some sense. Because last year, the bulk of the games this arsenal team were carried by youngsters. And the attacking possessions, you know, I was able to at the end when lacasse form just when he couldn't get in the goals, it was young soccer, who was carried a lot of the bob then, so did all the guard so that moved Smith Rowe so did Martinelli. Yes, they didn't do it alone. But they carried a huge button of the pressure. And they almost catapulted arsenal into the top four after the shambolic start. So when he's talking about mentality, I'm looking at him and others and others of his Elk who are experienced international footballers. Rather than talking about the mentality of failure on these young players, who actually were the story in 9 out of ten most weeks in this arsenal team. So I think when you're looking in the mirror at arsenal over the last year or two, I think you're looking at the older players who have let them down at times rather than the younger players who I think have actually grown and stature under the pressure that Mikhail Arteta and this club were under. And what do you think of these players coming in native and the ones that we just mentioned in zinchenko and ovilee obviously Gabrielle shaz already in there plays that will help the cause of arsenal or are you looking at it as plays that weren't good enough to be at man city? I think it's players that will help the cause because for those in and for Gabriel Jesus there were city a lot of years and they contribute to some of the success that city have had along the way. So I can't really say that the surplus, but I think at city the squad can be so deep sometimes that some people can get lost within it and I think at times those two did were that. But then to put some respect on zinchenko's name, I think it was a year ago, he was playing in the Champions League Final, played in the second semifinal against PSG, so we've trusted in the final stages of the significant part of the season's four cities. So I wouldn't say he's a bit part player saying I wouldn't say for Jesus as well because again he did E contribute very much so come the last game of last season against fellow which won them the title. So I think for them going to arsenal, I think seeing winners comes through the door, in my opinion, was always exciting because you kind of want to know how they did it. How city are doing things, you know, trying to get behind the curtain on that side to understand what they're doing and maybe see what you can do yourself as an individual as a collective in terms of the club as well. So they're bringing good experiences, positive mindsets, and also to talk about also not mentality thing. I think I agree with what Craig said. And I think worst of all for arsenal for me, is when you sometimes see the fixtures come out. You think, oh, I don't fancy them there. And it's never a case you don't really don't find some there at city way or Chelsea. It's like at Brentford away is that Saint James's Park is at selhurst park away on the mid week and stuff. But in those games, if they end up losing them, it's not because they've been outplayed. It's because they've had that little bit missing that that little bit, maybe it's a bit of character a bit of desire, the mentality to know that it's not just about playing football. You have to fight as well as you alluded to with his interview. And I think that is key because having been somebody who's played as an underdog in the Premier League for a while. There are some teams where you know that you're not going to outplay them. So you try and get in their faces, make them uncomfortable for them to be predictable and try and just unsettle them basically. And I think arsenal had been a candidate for that, whereas I think if you look at city, you look at Liverpool, it's very, very hard to ruffle their fathers. So most teams end up just dropping off because they know stepping forward is the worst thing you could possibly do, but play the stepping forward against arsenal at times can be very beneficial. So I think with those two players coming in and understanding the places that they've come from with the management with the other players around them, they're on understanding a desire of what it takes to win ten, 15 games in a row to be having to start and play well if you want to play in the next game. That mentality surely has to be a good thing at arsenal because as they look around the squad, this is sort of potential, but they'll still come in and they've seen it. They felt that they've won it before and lifted that trophy and it's something that I imagine the rest of us quite aspired to feel. They're not to go back to your point. They're not bringing in two players that are surplus in terms of the disposable as an asset by Manchester City, but they've been brilliant for the club. But it's their manager is Guardiola's pursuit of perfection that means one or two loaded goal. Raheem Sterling, who has been a magnificent contributor for that manager and that club, but yet through willing to let him go and the player wants to go the come to some sort of agreement. Jesus obviously in his score goals, clearly. And that's been a void because lacazette's link up play was good, but his goals were told was not and certainly last season. But you go back to zinchenko if they can make this happen. That just gives them so many options because he's been a terrific left bike. He can play in the middle of the park as he does for the Ukraine, his country, and does it very well, by the way. And also arsenal have had a problem in that website. Kieran Tierney is a terrific player, but I think arsenal have a concern these constant injuries. I think it's a worry for them. But if team this is fair, it gives them the option, arsenal, if they want to go to your back for the year, play teal me or play a left side, they set a bike any other injuries because tearney can switch between left back and left side is sent about both in a four and a three. And zinchenko can switch from left back to midfield and that gives much more options in terms of that left hand side, which has been I think quite problematic for the reasons that I mentioned. So I think those two would be terrific sailors for arsenal, particularly if they can get this in genco one done. Something else

"Told you. I've told you for weeks now he wants players to be the opponent in one on one and having those kind of wide players. Certainly on one side, to go on one on one, which doesn't have any team. That's why the standing leagues, that's why the then belly lings gap. He wants at least one player to be this kind of guy. So if you actually locate numbers and stats, which I know he has access to, I think you'll find that hakim ziege last year, even though people might surprise some people, but he was 7th in the Premier League in terms of successful dribbles per game per 90 minutes, obviously. And also in successful dribble percentage. So we kind of has that guy just never plays him. I'm more interested in the fact is, are you going to have, how are you going to have Sterling and dembele? I think he's one of the two. One of the two fine. So he's going to play he's going to pay three four two one and then when they win the ball, this dude's going to go out wide and beat players. It might not play us through. I don't understand. You can play back four and play a four three three formation. Is that what you don't need to sign two center backs? Exactly. So I think it'd be interesting. I think they need that kind of profile. They need that kind of player anyway. Yeah, good luck with content Regina lasting all season and two. Bill Moore sure, why not? Saga is almost over as we record this, gab reported that Chelsea are ready to let him return to for one year for 10 million loan fee. Yeah, inter offering €5 million loan fee. All right, I want to say one thing very, very clearly, which I think often gets overlooked in this as people go and demolish Lukaku, but people forget this. Lukaku is taking a very big pay cut. He's leaving 30% on the table. On top of that, he's getting tax benefits and so on. But in the end, net of all that in terms of what actually goes into the Romelu Lukaku bank account, right? It's going to be 30% less than what it is now. I love it. If more players had the courage and the responsibility to go and take pay cuts, when they do not have to. I think this reflects very well on the cockpit. That said, I don't know. I think at some point, if I'm taught boldly, first thing I do is I find out what will happen here. I'm going to go and find out. Did you want Lukaku? Because he causes a ton of money. Now we gave in to a €110 million, they're giving 10 million of that back to us. They made a 100 million office and he's playing for a different team. And you know what? He's going to be back next season. If he does badly, what the? I mean, seriously. Somebody needs to take responsibility for this. Yeah. And it's like you're interested in talking faulty places. One of the worst. I mean, come on, one of the worst. Had some tough words for the French FA president. Jules, what do you make of this? Tension a lot of tension of the image rights, a lot of tensions of papi. Feeling that after the penalty that I missed in new years, again, Switzerland in a penalty shootout that man France lost that game that he was subject to racial abuse, racist abuse on social media. And at some point you thought maybe I'm not going to play for a little bit with the national team. It wasn't taking it as soon as repeated that, but it said, oh yeah, I took him to keeping playing. And Kylian was like, no, no, I told you I was abused. We should clearly didn't take on board. So there's been tensions between them too. I don't think this is that bodes well for the great for who wants another go. Another state as the French, I think he'd be gone as early as an election. And it's official now gab Argentina Paraguay Chile and Uruguay will all be jointly for the 20 30 workup. Do you think we will never see a single country hosting the World Cup? With 48 teams, I think it's basically going to be impossible unless it's China or something. So no, good for them. I think you need an alternative in 2030. More mature city, Alexander zinchenko reportedly wants to spend more time playing in midfield or maybe just playing at all. So he's being linked with a move away. Arsenal West Ham and Everton have all been mentioned jewels. Yeah, it really gave me such a good player to start with. It's got the good attitude. It's got a peps cooling as well. So no problem. I think if you don't want too much too much money, it would go. And sticking with Citi, Juan malio, has left the club to join javi's old team in Qatar Al sahad to be the head coach now, the main manager. On top of the list to replace him, our partners Enzo maresca yes, of course, he'd been in charge of cities under 23s. He's a really, really bright guy. He's a guy really like. Yeah, but of course he managed Parma last season. They had very high expectations and he was frankly terrible. They were close to relegation. That was in city of B but you know what? As an assistant to pep, pep likes him once and once we part of the team, why not? I don't think they're linked with the move for axel witsel jewels. He's 33, somehow this doesn't quite excite me. Many that he was Marcelo Atlético Madrid. Marseille would really keen to get his experience to replace bubba Camara. He wanted to go to a critical more than to Marseilles, maybe I can understand. She's not really a marine guy, he doesn't own a boat. I don't know. I don't know why. 'cause I thought he would fit well in that massive dressing room. They also in the Champions League, you know, okay, it's not a typical Madrid. Madrid's in the Champions League too. But you know, but at least he could have said oh yeah. And now, I mean, I don't know for what we saw when he came back from injury with domina season. I don't know, he could not run merge if his son could not turn, which he was not very good at before either. I, even if you are critical, I questioned the deal I have to say, I don't need another defensive midfielder. Yeah, even on the free. I'm not really sure where this all coming from. But I'm like you, I'm really surprised. It's very close to agreeing a one year deal with Juventus. Does this one excite you? It excites me more because it's a one year deal. Now that said, I can also see Fidel going to terrain basically half assing it for 6 months. So you fit for the World Cup. And then maybe doing something after that. I generally don't know. I like the fact that it's a one year deal so that then he's off the books. He depends on the right hand side, yeah? So yeah, but move one on the left. He played as a number ten for Manchester United States in some games. A lot of people say that Di Maria was like Robin. I mean, come on. I don't know. Says Nina told him he's going to quit the national team soon, presumably after the World Cup and cutter, and that the Real Madrid winger is the perfect long-term replacement for him. First of all, I think ruby goes really sweet. So oversharing here, but I mean, I don't know. I think Venetians is by far the most ready air to name our. And we knew the name of this kind of looking at the World Cup thinking this could be my last. I mean, there's another four and it would be 34. 36. 1992? No, he was no ten 30 in February. So it would be 34 in 2026. But even at maybe a 34, you can still, I don't know, you might be able to play but I think the pressure and everything might be too much. If Rodrigo wants to be, he's the next one to come. Okay, good for you, but it's a lot to deal with in terms of pressure to be the one guy. And I think it would probably be better for Brazil going forward to know that one guy maybe share the lowest between all those great talent that they have coming through and there. As expected Barcelona voted to send the licensing merchandising and media rights in exchange for a short term cash. How is it going to work now then? So I have a whole column coming out. Did you know that story? You followed it very closely. I do, because I think it's really fascinating. And I think there's two questions here. One is, is this a good deal for Barcelona? And obviously, for it to happen, you have to make certain assumptions. So they're willing to, it says they've got 400 parties lined up to sell up to 25% of the television rates. He said, every 10% of television rights is worth about 200 million, right? So if you could get 500 million in to sell your 25% of media rights..

"On Wednesday the Ukrainian national soccer team did something very few predicted Who lift the hearts of a devastated nation They beat the Scottish national team in Scotland to advance to the final World Cup qualifier against Wales But before the game even started there were questions about how the Ukrainian team would match up against the favored Scots Not only because the Ukrainian players are dealing with the emotional stress of their country being at war but also because some team members hadn't played competitively in months due to the invasion Now the team is hoping to pull off another win against Wales on Sunday Here to talk about Ukraine's big win and preview their next game is roger Bennett He's the co host of the sports podcast men in blazers Welcome Oh Alyssa it's a joy to be with you Okay roger So you are originally from England I'm wondering if you can give us some perspective How big this win was for Ukraine and the loss for Scotland Well there's an old sporting adage that football is the most important least important thing But watching this Ukrainian team take the field right now charging towards November's World Cup huge stakes It feels like the most important most important thing few teams in world sports have ever been more universally beloved than this Ukrainian team in their yellow and light blue shorts They take the field wearing their nations flag on their backs the crowd in Scotland many of them was zelensky masks glory to Ukraine broke out as a chant during the game based on the official military greeting used by zelensky in his regular video addresses and to watch the first goal scorer in Scotland the gentleman called jar malenko who reigned the ball over the head of a helpless Scottish goalkeeper this striker pleading West Ham in the Premier League but he'd had to take compassionate leave in the middle of the season to go and rescue his own wife and kids who'd escape Ukraine via Poland To watch him reel away in glory you realize you're watching shattered grieving traumatized human beings come together with remarkable focus and making a deeply deeply powerful statement to their homeland and to the world Well I imagine you know as you said Scottish fans are kind of like into the Ukrainian team They're singing the Ukrainian national anthem before the game Do you think it was hard for Scottish fans to root against Ukraine Like were they secretly pulling for them The Scotland God love are a nation footballing league with just a string of traumas of their very own and so even some of their most well-known people like the Al Michaels equivalent of Scottish football went on television that said even I'm rooting for Ukraine So yeah they're about to play Wales 90 minutes on Sunday with a place in the World Cup on the line and Wales are a wonderful nation Wales have not been in the World Cup themselves since 1958 but it does feel like only the Welsh and the Russians will be cheering for Wales Journalists are calling this whales versus the world And the Ukrainian captain Oleksandr Zinchenko was said the game won't be about physical conditions or about tactics It will be about survival Well I can imagine that this is probably been very emotional for the players on that Ukrainian team I mean you mentioned kind of going back home to rescue family members some of them were hiding in bomb shelters just months ago I mean do you have a sense of what this has been like for the team Yeah the game against Scotland Midweek ended three one to Ukraine and the Scottish scored a goal which made it agonizingly close down the stretch the ball was narrowly over the line and after the game Ukrainian midfielder terrace stepanenko he told the press that he got into the locker room powered up his foe and looked at the text and he said he got hundreds from soldiers fighting on the Russian front who told him that quote the army at the border didn't think the ball had crossed the line and that's just like the surreal reality They are footballers yes but human beings first and foremost and their jubilant manager Alexander Petrov who is a dour man not normally an emotional man at all but one who said that in this past couple of months as he's worked with this squad And as you said many of these players who the ones who play at home in Ukraine have not been able to kick a football for months because our lead shut down he said it's his life mission now he's realized to qualify his nation in their hour of need and he dedicated the win This was his words to the people watching back home in shelters for the armed forces in the trenches for the people in the hospital so to play with that front of mind You realize you're watching deeply traumatized human beings coming together playing as a collective but with the stakes that couldn't be higher What more can you tell us about the Ukrainian team What are some players that we should follow along with The captain is a young gentleman Alexander zinchenko is 25 plays for Manchester City the champions the Premier League Watching him post invasion immediately taking the field the crowd in England all brought Ukrainian flags of support along and he broke down on the field played while sobbing and to watch him lead You realize you're watching a football up but really an ambassador He is sobbed in almost every press conference and it makes dignified valor propelled way as he's been forced to talk not about football whatsoever but to beg for peace and talk about his nation's struggle their longing their belief And that tells some of the joy and the wonder of football is it a massive story trapped in a small story and human beings like zinchenko are truly rising to the moment Okay so for tomorrow's match between Ukraine and Wales what are your predictions For me pure footballing perspective we have no idea how much adrenaline got them through the Scotland game How much energy they'll have these are tired men They are human They are bruised They are scarred They are traumatised We had one of our fans right in to us on Friday A Ukrainian listener in the United States then he wrote I cried during the Scotland Ukraine game I will cry on Sunday during the Wales Ukraine game and hopefully I'll cry in November watching the United States Ukraine World Cup match and so I think the only thing that's for sure is that there will be tears Wow an incredible game an incredible story That was roger Bennett from the.

And that's really good to see. In duels, he looks strong. He's calm and that's what you want from your center backs. There are the words from Greg berhalter and Cincinnati as the U.S. defeats Morocco three, nothing in an international friendly building up to the World Cup in Qatar berhalter has got to be feeling pretty good tonight, yeah? Yeah, I mean, there are a few things that manager could ask out of a makeshift team with so many substitutions and get that kind of result versus that kind of opponent. So he's got to be feeling good about what he saw. There you go. The U.S. getting a big convincing victory over Morocco. They also got some more good news tonight. Gio reyna is back on the field and back to training. Of course, been dealing with just hamstring injury after hamstring injury. Here from his own Instagram in Austin, getting it in. His father is the sporting director at Austin FC. So he's in Austin training, probably his family lives there. It's good to see him back. Don't underestimate how important he is to the U.S. men's national team and where he was not too long ago 5 month injury. World Cup qualifying, of course, that's still going on. Scotland and Ukraine playing earlier today. In Hampden Park. Winner of this game gets whales on Sunday winner of that into the U.S. group at the World Cup, Ukraine going ahead in the 33rd through Andre yarmolenko. Yeah, good go by Christian. Wait, what? Do you want my link on politica on the same breakfast plan? What did they eat? Beautiful touch, ridiculous finish. It was that easy. Your brain getting a second in the 49th Roman yet em chuck. I mean, you know what I'm with that kind of frame. Ball comes in, he's got three guys draped on him, no problem. Look at the scenes there, the Ukrainian fans going wild. Scotland. With some hope late, Callum McGregor. Just getting it over the line. This is a tough one. Goalkeeper here just bobbles that off the line. I had my doubts but it ended up really being in and then well, one B one at the end. Not the only one he had. Not the only one V one they had at the end, by the way. Don't be making it three to one there as Ukraine advances. Here's Sam Borden with more. 30 minutes after the final whistle, Ukraine midfielder Alexander zinchenko was still on the field, hugging teammates, fans, pretty much anybody he could find at the end.

It's designed to think of the nation state in glowing emotional, wonderful ways late 93 20 and I'm not going to name the person that send this, but I did receive a great tweet soaked in cognitive dissonance from a city fan at the final whistle yesterday. He tweeted angrily at me for mentioning sports washing and he said, roger, not now. Please stop with your moral stances. I was like, oh, David, don't you hate it when moral stances get in the way of the football. I mean, the only problem is that the moral stat, the moral stamps, the moral stances, they have to you just don't quite know when to stop because there is a sense that next year's promos are going to be like it's hedge funds versus nation states this week and the Premier League on NBC. Hedge fund. Hedge fund team hedge fund versus team nation state. You tell me I need to organize just a union of socialist Democrats socialists who Venmo me unified fund and try and run a team upon pure principles. You'll enjoy life in league two. I'm making my major potsy for America to come in with me by a team and we can run it according to just a values first team to forest green. The forest greeter fumble. Yeah, I will say what are the weird features of this season for me has been watching peps heel to down the stretch at David Burke tweeted us that peppers become Westworld's doctor Robert Ford, a man who desires control above all else and has produced a robotic copy of himself, for argument's sake, I'll make up a fictitious name and I'll call him filled with an F, food and with a PH and they were at the white pep teal turn. I'm going to say I enjoy manic pet. I enjoy wizard pet. I enjoy hooding and peppy even but hail pep, the one that points the finger starts bands wars with Klopp is furious that his club is just feared and not loved. You know, is a fascinating thing for me to see. I worry where that's going to go. You've watched the Tesla brand being polluted right now. I just watched that abercrombie and Fitch documentary. Oh, it was brilliant. I love that film. There's an interview of one of their PR people about the moment they knew that the culture had turned against the brand. She said it was when she saw Toby Maguire's Superman and he was fighting the school bully in the hall, and she noticed the bully and all the bullish Friends were dressed head to toe in at the combi clothes. She said, I like movement. I realized we were now in the bad guys, and we were screwed, and I got to say, when I see him, in these moments of glory, just he couldn't resist having a another pop up club in Liverpool by saying the Premier League is a greater achievement than the Champions League, isn't it, he said, I'm not saying the champions are not important when mad crazy to win it. We want it. We love it. We'd love to be in Paris, but to win 30 year games rather than 6 8 or 9 games, it's different. Is that more like you can't find me, I quit or does he have a point? I think he's got a point. I mean, who knows the reason for him saying it, it may be, he has got there through the wrong route, but I think he's right. And you look at the emotion of this entire week and weekend roger will get no doubts talking about Everton and just the matter that staving off relegation or being relegated is such an emotionally draining draining thing and just I like to think I dealt with objectively. But is this 38 game season? And I don't think you'd see that look on K DB's face. Do you just wouldn't feel that that the achievement of the entire staff? I think that's very, I think it's a lovely moment in the Premier League trophy ceremony when all of the staff are lined up and the players come and thank them all and they thank the players. It's the achievement of a team to win the Premier League. I'm not saying there are lots of sour grapes for me the fact that we've gone through multiple Chelsea wins on this part and we've barely even mentioned it. But it is just this has been a season of all seasons and the achievement of winning the Premier League this season. Head to head against Liverpool, who are so good. I think you've just got to give it to pep. This is, I think this is bigger than winning the Champions League. I have to say, and on the whole, I would normally say it most times during the season, the Champions League is the biggest thing in football, but I gotta tell you right now the Premier League winning the Premier League is so hard. Everybody is so good. I think it's just an achievement. Let's end with one of the beautiful moments of which you mention at the culmination of the trophy ceremony 25 year old Ukrainian Alexander zinchenko broke down in tears after we'd wrapped the Premier League trig fee in the Ukrainian flag and then stepped back from it, just leaving the trophy and the flag between him and the fans. David, what emotions must he have been feeling in that moment? Yeah, and also he had a fantastic game. He had the assist for Rodri skull, I think, and just played really well throughout and what a season he's experienced, unlike any other, yeah, it's hard not to be moved by that. Yeah, I love the first player into console. Was Jack Grealish. I would bet money that Jack Grealish has absolutely no idea why he's inko was crying. He was like, what so you can see?.

"alexander zinchenko" Discussed on Caught Offside

"He's been great. Yeah. And then one other scene that was truly emotional at the Eddie had in Manchester, Alexander zinchenko took the Premier League trophy and wrapped it in the Ukrainian flag. And broke down. I mean, really broke down just like I guess as he did it, like the gravity of that moment hit him. And his players, other his teammates all came over and hugged him and it was, I mean, you can only imagine just like the emotion that must be going through that guy's head, not just today, but since all of this has since the war has broken out in his home country. And having to try and mentally compartmentalize and putting things like that aside family and friends who are back home and are in clear danger every day of their lives while he tries to do his job and focus on what has been an incredibly intense title run and he has played well for them. I mean, really well, he was brilliant today. For them. If you haven't had a chance, just go on Twitter, type in his name, and you'll see it. It's quite a powerful scene. It's hard for me to watch that and think that the owners of Manchester City in February voted against a United Nations resolution condemning Russia's invasion of Ukraine. That is interesting. I wonder zinchenko ever communicate that to them. His disappointment in that or does he just get on with it? I guess he gets on with it. I don't know. That's a good question. But I don't know. I wonder if he's answered that question. I'm sure it's been asked. I don't know. I must look that up. But at any rate, the scene of him today was really powerful. And then I saw another one of young men's son addressing his Tottenham teammates in the dressing room after their game today. He was awarded the Golden Boot on site, him and sala will share it. And you could see just also what it meant to him. Really a huge achievement for him as well in this season. So some cool things going on around all the different grounds today. As the primarily comes to a conclusion, a couple of things to finish out on JJ, we should get one note in on Manchester United. We don't have to go too deep, but what are we going to say? Well, the only thing you see is just drives them into apoplexy. So I'm not looking to take any shots here. There's no reason. We all know the score. Like us, united supporters, the players, no one's going to sit here and put a positive spin on what happened. This season was a disaster for them. They all know that. No one's, we don't have to sit here and hammer that home. I just wondered, I just wonder what happens next here. I don't know if this is if this is a quick fix for them. Obviously, their new manager Eric ten hawk was on site today watching this, a season that ended fittingly with a loss to Crystal Palace. But boy, you talk about teams at a crossroads. This was kind of their Gopher broke season. Like they went out and they spent veron Sancho Ronaldo. They fired their manager. They brought in a guy that thought could potentially be a fix. Wasn't, went out, hired another big money manager in ten hog. They really went for it this year. It exploded spectacularly, they'll still be in the Europa League next season, which it's funny with all the craziness of this year and teams were disappointments and underachieved over. In the end, the top 6 were still the top 6. Maybe not in the exact order that we all thought, but it's just funny how things still kind of fall in line. But with the united I assume Pogba is going to go, I don't know what, I think Ronaldo will be back, but I guess I don't really know. You know, I think ten hogg like he's a manager back before Tottenham hired Nuno, ten hog was a guy I wanted at spurs. So I think he's a good manager. I think he's, listen, I think he's a very good manager. But I think they need to back him and give him the staff that he needs and they got to give them the time to change things because I think he can make them good again. But there's things I wonder about there. Like this season, what is Marcus Rashford? Is he a great united player or is he should he be it? Like the next tier down from that. And is that what he is? Like Harry Maguire, what is he? If he's a starting central defender for you, does that mean you're not that good of a team or did he just have a bad year coming off of the Euros? Like we've talked about with all these other guys. So like there's just, there's a market at every position. But there's a question mark at every position off the field too. Like last week's Manchester evening news, yet another senior member of staff from Manchester United has left the club. Former chief of staff Patrick Coyle takes up a role with the PFA. Coyle becomes the latest senior member of staff at Old Trafford to leave the club with sweeping changes being made ahead of Eric's arrival..

"alexander zinchenko" Discussed on Techmeme Ride Home

"Welcome to the tech meme ride home for a Thursday, February 24th, 2022, I'm Brian McCullough today. They're actually is a tech angle to what's going on in Ukraine though for all of our sakes. Let's hope there's not too much of one. Stablecoins are where it's at in crypto at the moment. Not one, but two new flagship phones to tell you about and the interesting AI details behind zuck's latest metaverse presentation. Here's what you missed today in the world of tech. Well, it looks like war in Ukraine is kicking off and as I want to do in these sorts of situations, let me, of course, stress that I have no background in geopolitical or military affairs, even when it comes to tech, nor do I believe in just finding the tech angle in quotes for whatever the big story of the day is. But I will point out more so than a lot of geopolitical stories over the last 25 years of the modern tech era. Tech might end up being very much a big part of this particular story. Sadly, yes, cybersecurity experts have warned for months that this war should it come could be asymmetrical, but in the sense that cyber battlefields might be the major battlefields outside of Ukraine. Already, several Ukrainian government sites have been disrupted by DDoS attacks and researchers have discovered new data wiper malware installed on hundreds of Ukrainian machines. Quoting ZD net. The websites for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ministry of Defense ministry of internal affairs, security service, known as the SBU, and cabinet of ministers, all faced outages confirmed both by the state service of special communications and information protection and net blocks and organization tracking Internet outages around the world. Bank, the largest commercial bank in Ukraine, and as Chad bank, the state savings bank of Ukraine, both dealt with outages to later in the day researchers at ESET discovered a new data wiper malware used in Ukraine. He set telemetry allegedly showed that the wiper was installed on hundreds of machines. The wiper abuses legitimate drivers from the ease U.S. or ease us, partition master software in order to corrupt data as a final step of the wiper reboots the computer, ESET said. In one of the targeted organizations, the wiper was dropped via the default domain policy GPO meaning that attackers had likely taken control of the Active Directory server. As many have noted online, the attack began around 4 p.m. local time as Ukraine's parliament began to discuss a state of emergency declaration, the 30 day state of emergency was approved by the Ukrainian government as both U.S. and NATO warned that a Russian invasion was likely. Russian forces moved into eastern parts of the country over the last two days, end quote. So add to that the fact that major sanctions against Russia by the west are likely coming. And so a reminder to all CIS out there that asymmetrical lashing out by Russian backed cyber warriors could likely be coming as well, quoting Nicole pearl Roth on Twitter. Remember, the Internet has collapsed the distance. We are no longer an island protected by two oceans. While there are no specific threats to the U.S. any retaliation to sanctions will likely come in the form of cyberattacks. Get your house in order now. End quote. I've also been reading continued drum beats of people talking about whether or not simple things like banning software updates for Russian users might degrade Russian cyber defense capabilities. Meanwhile, the adjacent tech spheres have news as well. Bitcoin overnight fell 8% to a one month low, ether dropped 12% and just generally there was a crypto crash across most coins, wiping a $150 billion off the crypto market in the last 24 hours, which begs the questions that I've asked before, is in crypto hedge against inflation. No, apparently, is in crypto a safe haven for assets in times of geopolitical turmoil. Again, no, apparently. Crypto can only go up in times of relative stability. It seems like lately. Also, Twitter says it has mistakenly suspended around a dozen accounts posting about Russian military movements near the Ukrainian border and reinstated some of those accounts. The first thing that I check every morning is the English soccer news. And there, the big story this morning was that Manchester City's Ukrainian defender Alexander zinchenko claimed that Instagram had deleted his post telling Russian president Vladimir Putin quote I hope you die the most painful suffering death creature end quote. But look, one more very personal tech angle to consider here, it's not unusual for startups, especially at their early stages to have remote engineering teams in places like Ukraine. So there's likely some serious disruption for a lot of companies from that angle this morning and conversely, if you have Russian based teams, you might want to start preparing for the bite of sanctions which may be crafted in such a way that U.S. or western based companies are forbidden from working with Russian based.
