"Remember before the World Cup, you know, with Chelsea were fumbling, there was just some reason he was the lightning rod for Chelsea vanity trot on mostly for ten minutes at the end of the game. It came out my club. Game out at Mike. You don't hear that anymore. There's so many problems all over the field. Politics boy is just not even on the agenda. And I think what I feel for him, I feel for Christian and who Andrew millington's Chelsea fan equivalent. It's probably saying he's not even really on Chelsea training videos at all anymore. Unless they're doing bleeding appeals to American fans, whether they're just going to post him arriving in his Porsche. And then we all go crazy for that. It's a wild and complex elaborate play for tour the long play I think these players are just the smoke screen for poorly take some of that heat off him. It is deeply deeply confounding. But Felix, I've got to say, is why do we watch football, we watched a film alive and there's few footballers that makes me feel more ecstatic, a sense of possibility, a sense of joy. So watching, watching our Felix is like being in Viking times and you encamp and everyone's had a few drinks and the fires there. There's a few balls that are spinning round, no doubt the battle has been won. And then the poet child gets everyone cheers as the poet child gets on the shoulders of the giant warrior and just unleashes in human form free spitting out the rhymes and the instant ballad of the battle we yearn for this man. He didn't win the fight. No, he didn't win the fight. I'm not even sure he could lift the warhammer, but my God, when he speaks, it feels like molten gold is pouring from his lips and I'm there for that child. I am there for that child in the same way as I'm there for Joe Felix. So godspeed have faith get a bloody striker whose name is not uba Yang. By the way, I do believe there's a great bloody football team. I want to be clear Chelsea fans who are frustrated. I feel you. Chelsea fans who are down. I feel you. I think it's incredibly sad that a new owner, enjoying his hobby, his pastime getting his yucks as kind of giving you a year of dismal impotence football. I do wait for that, but I do believe also. I think this is going to be with the right decision with the right management decision, which is why originally they said they were going to peace themselves. It was going to be a quote exhaustive search. Now they're crapping their pants clearly because they hear the hooves of Real Madrid and PSG and the other alphas will pluck their man so they've got to go quickly get nargles month offering some zoom time with Tony Hawk if he signs for Chelsea football club. I hope it's not hurried. I hope it's not a hoop it's management appointments are like donor organs. They can be rejected by the host body like Graham Potter was. When 35 he's in a quiet taste, I hope they make the right choice. Because there is there is a bloody good team to be found in that squad. That is it for the night before we go. I want to thank you for being with me on this night and night. I was really looking forward to that Chelsea Liverpool game. It was so bloody flat. I've still got like the hangover of wonderful last night, but before we go, we want to remind you of everything that's coming up for men and blazers, world headquarters this week powered by Buddha I easy to drink easy to enjoy.

"Old friend is the great. Oh, Andrew millington. Oh, did you dance all night Andrew millington? I did it. It was absolutely incredible, keen, shot us in the leg like prime place go burris, only to save us like crime Kobe. Did he mean that shot, you beautiful human being? Yes, he did. You see all these training videos of his finishing ability, which to be fair is a fluff because everyone looks good against irritating, including Everton. He meant that. God love, can I do love people who watched training videos of his finishing? I mean, that is, that is almost because all I see when I look at Everton's training is just Sean Dyke's laughing well having his players vomit out of sheer exhaustion. So the fact that you've seen a Michael keen shot and that you have time to make to watch Michael Keane shots in training. It's up there with gen Sykes doing her accounting. God bless. What a gorgeous moment. I do believe that you officially do know or have an update etymology wise on what is the official collective noun for fired managers. What was it, Andrew willington? Watford? I love. For the fire religious life. So good and it's so good because it's so bloody trick. I don't think really Hudson will be laughing as hard. As I am right now, you beautiful human being. Can we get a gut check? Deliriously on how are you feeling about the Manchester United everything game in a weekend? I've got to tell you, as I speak to you, I'm getting frantic text messages from my parents judge and Val, who've just landed at JFK. And are on their way to be with us, which is always a joy, and it's always vaguely terrifying. And one of the highlights of their stay is that on Saturday, I get to wake up at 7 30 in the morning and sit on my couch with my children who live and die for Everton because I'm a cruel bastard and a terrible parent. And my dad, three generations of tormented, sad, bereft, sports fans. We will watch ever till against Manchester. I said, I am so terrified for that. I want so badly Andrew millington for it to be a joyous one, a bonding through the Bennett generations. I do believe that it will be a shattering it would be like a Viking week I do believe in person Bennett group chat essentially is the most nervous Bennett group chat with my brother and I just lobbing in Liverpool bombs from the sideline. How are you feeling about this game, Andrew? Do we have any hope? Not in the face of my initial reaction until Casimir got that red. That gives me that deadly, deadly shred of hope that I hate so very much that we could maybe get a draw, but rashford is going to do terrible things to keen. Yeah, I mean, the two great the two great goals score is something called casimiro is next available domestically for Manchester United when they travel to Everton's relegation rivals, Nottingham Forest, he'll be boxed fresh against Ariel helwani's beloved forest. I do, I've got to say, I do fear it, but I can't remember. I was thinking of that. Comment below and everything game. Which I have approached, really in the past, maybe three years. Where I actually confidently charge into it, believing we're getting one, we get drool named like FA Cup games against boron wood, a crap my pants. That is pretty well aware of come Andrew millington, pray for rod. We are going to take one more call tonight to wrap things up. There's no better way to end the night than speaking to a Greek yinzer friend at the pod. Come on up, can be reversed. Oh, it's old. 64. Hello. Megan from Pittsburgh. I know. I know it's the great American from Pittsburgh. How are you doing? Well, the second greatest. There's already, you know, Megan klingenberg is from here. And it's just, I mean, she is up there in the early years. What is your question? So my question is, is not to beat the dead horse on Chelsea's manager situation, but this is a little bit funny that MIA's has had to deal with mind managers. The women are the model of consistency and elite miss while the men are just a dumpster fire. Everything that embodied Chelsea football club was the women on Sky Sports with grand Potter being sacked at the bottom. It's the true body one of this club, but I wanted to ask a question about y'all Felix. I've seen fab tweeting a lot that Chelsea after gel on a permanent. But I mean, what is the point? It's another, yes, he's creative and yes he does all these very dynamic things, but it feels like a lot like another positionless player in a group of positionless players. Yeah, and we can push modern positioning. I mean, shall Felix. I mean, first of all, it's an immensely handsome young man. So double revenues in the club shop, I think the zhao Felix Felix with that SEC frat boy haircut is just that's probably factors and I'm vaguely joking, but I'm sure this is actually probably how Todd barley actually does think. Secondly, you watch him and he is one of the most electric footballers. I mean, he is in. He's in Alan saint maxim and territory where you would move to the edge of your seat, but he's almost he's booming Alan saint maximon territory and in adoma track all right territory where he's got the excitement of maximum and then just the end product of a and so you would move to the edge of your seat, but you kind of know there's no point because you know how this movie ends, but it's a beautiful movie. You do when you get on that ball just past his own halfway line, you can hear you can hear not only the entire stadium inhale but you can hear you can always hear Peter drury's mind snap into some line of synapse saying ecstatic poetry which he's just going to unleash Stanford bridge hails a new hero arrives you Portuguese prince. I mean, you just want it. You feel it every single bloody time looks easy, one of the great Z sounding names since Zorro. It's like you feel it and it makes you feel alive. And then there's no end product, no end product at all. But ultimately, that's the Chelsea problem just to spend all of that money. And when we talked about collective nouns for slaughtered managers, it's got to be a collective nouns for creative, yet deeply, deeply impotent footballers, which Tom Burley is collected. At nauseam over the past ten months to the extent that, to the extent that the Christian politic issue, which was, by the way, the collective now apparently is a bully. For creative, but deeply impotent footballers, but we don't even talk about Christian politic anymore. That is the those arguably one of the great achievements of Todd Burley's leadership is that the Christian politic issue, which was everything.

"Let's dive in. Come on to stage. And join us stage first question. From the great Andrew millington old friend. Oh, suffering no doubt at the moment as an evertonian. Welcome back Andrew millington remind us where you're from and what your question is. I'm happy to be back rods. Thank you so much. Andrew millington from Corpus Christi. And there are some rumors on Twitter as there always are about imminent Everton takeover or shareholder buys or anything like that. And the most recent one that I saw was MSP capital or mister najafi from MSP capital, apparently talks have fizzled with spurs ownership and they're now setting their sites on somebody a bit cheaper enter Everton. And I was going to ask one, is there any legs to that rumor and two if so, if there was a buyout complete reset FFP resolved all good to go, would you take going down in order to secure an completely new board and leadership group, or would you rather try and cling to life with what we've got? Because it doesn't seem like wants to sell with sanctions and us but not links and all that. Yeah, this is a complicated technical one Andrew millington. So Everton football club, we've talked about them a lot on men in blazers. They says you do not have a pot to piss in. You know, dear listeners, how important money is in terms of final position in the Premier League and Everton have so bloody little of it. When Ukraine was invaded, the devastation was massive. Obviously, and tiny, tiny knock on effects, nothing compared to what has happened to the people, the cities, the towns, and villages of Ukraine. But the first oligarch to be sanctioned by Britain was a man whose men of who had long tried to take over arsenal to now affect and decamped put his target on Everton football club an oil gent very close to Putin. He couldn't take over the club. He still had to pass the fit and proper test that the English Premier League professes it has with new owners. And so he installed his partner. This gentleman Iranian English man who was really the front all the money was huge man of the sponsorship deals that poured into everything a huge amount. I can't remember the exact percentage, but I think and I'm going to have to relook this up, that will hold me to this about 40% of Everton's command. I shall income came from usman of sponsorships. And when they were sanctioned, they had to shed that almost overnight. It suddenly from like a powerful gentleman who was having a laugh over just buying blassie for 25 million. I heard about negotiations with machinery from one club where they said it was a protracted, this is kind of incredible. A protracted, very player. The club star player in king was sherry, who was F in them around, and the club turned around to Everton and said, listen, we're sick of this. 40 million is our price. Take it all leave it and machinery came back the next day and said, 45 million as he started to negotiate it against himself. So this guy, more money than sense, the money was huge enough. Once you've been off with severed after the invasion of Ukraine, Everton have nothing. Yeah, we have an old board of lackeys. You've been around in the club for the longest time and have not changed. You think they know everything. They know anything. So really what you're asking, what do they go down to shed that skin? And it's a bloody difficult question Andrew millington because it's a rational question. It's a gambling question. It's a massive risk implicit in your analysis is once you go down with smart brains and smart money, you will come right back up again and shed all its dark and gained strategy, light, finance, rippled muscle, what's dead may never die. Honestly, call me old fashioned. Call me insane. But to me, you know, I don't remember, do you want the bird in the handle, the bird in the bushes? Is that what were you asking? And I'm always a bird in the hand gentleman. I cling on to Premier League life. The fact that we've never gone down for the longest period of time that we've always been in the Premier League that Everton are always where we turn up, that's what we do. That's our bloody silverware Andrew millington. And I do fear. I mean, you're painting a massive hypothetical, which in your situ is it a smart American. And we've seen lots of smart Americans. We've seen lots of the off take Americans is going to come in and take everything. And here's the reality we've ever done. And this is where the Tottenham to Everton thing does not make a lot of sense to me. The investors all want a big club. It's way Qatar went to PSG. PSG is a terrible club rotten. Nothing about water and violence and anger and hate and fighting amongst their own fans. But they realize Paris. That's a massive brand. You can do business in Paris, Paris. You're going to commercial business, you can do brand business, London is the same. A London club is a premium, the players, the best players want to be there. The players partners want to be there a big business is in London. The more north you go, the land here with Finn's house, spring to a lot of investors who sniffed around Derby County. And I quite fascinated the Americans by counting until they get to Derby for the first time. And they're like, oh, the crap, what is this place? It feels like I've arrived in the Middle Ages, and Liverpool is a fantastic city. I think you've been there Andrew millington. So you know that, but commercially, Liverpool, Manchester United, they're sucking up almost all of the commercial revenue, Manchester City. I mean, it's all sponsors coincidentally come from Abu Dhabi. So there's not that same commercial might. And so Everton are always going to be less interesting to investors. I'm telling you this long winded because the investors that I've spoken to who are interested in Everton football club are qualitatively less than the investors I've spoken to who are sniffing around the likes of Tottenham, who are sniffing around, even the likes of West Ham. Those London clubs, it's just a different cream, a different caliber. And so short answer is no. We fight. We fight. We cling to life. We never leave our trench no matter the amount of wounded, the suffering, the trauma that surrounds us. I do not want to go down. Can not stay, there has to be new owners. Part of him emotionally wants to stick around. We have this new stadium. I think part of it is just that pathetic impulse to be there when they cut the ribbon on the new stadium. That is the impulse that's keeping him there. Financially, there is not a chance that gentlemen can stick around unaided. So I'm praying, ultimately I'm praying for a miracle. I don't truly believe right now rationally that Everton stand too much of a chance. I feel sick every time. I watched was it ESPN FC or was it Sky Sports? We're like, ever since I feel for them, they've got fight. They've got a right direction on the Sean dyche. They're going to be fine. I don't feel that. I don't see it. Andrew. How do you feel? Goodison is the Somme. I really appreciate that. That's great. You've been there. Yeah. Now, I would say my fear is if we stay up, this board learns all the wrong lessons again that we're too big to fail and this decision to spend no money in January was completely justified gamble and nothing will ever change. That's my concern.
