Caught Offside: Previously on "The Bundesliga"...

"They caught off side to betty. Yes offside me my God from the upper west side of Manhattan. I wish I wait. No no from a suburb of New York City and from Brooklyn. It's Andrew Grumbling and J. J. Davani. What's up brother? I am so excited about this podcast. We are going to take you round. The world in in kind of discovery are expiration. A fine football culture a certain night yet. None of this is this. Podcast will be fun on multiple levels. What you're referencing. We're going to speak with James Montague who's been on this podcast a couple of times in the past. We're going to talk with him a little bit later on because he he's an author. He's a journalist and he just wrote a book about a subject. That is so fascinating to you. And I and we've talked about many times on this show and that is a book centered around the topic of ultras and that culture within this sport and he's his to say that he did a deep dive on. It is really selling short. The research that he did he traveled for essentially a year. I think he said ten months. He traveled the world going and for lack of a better term embedding himself within different ultra groups And just kind of observing the way they go about their their fandom their politics so he will join us later on in this podcast and like. I said it's something that we've talked about on this podcast. A lot is ultras and that culture. And he's GonNa go. He's going to go deep and it's not always pretty We've detailed many red card on the behavior of ultras so he James Montague will join us. I think you're going to want to listen to that. Because it's really fascinating and the Bundesliga is back Andrew. All that is why I am. I am truly excited. Because we're actually gonNA talk sought like actual substantive soccer like it's coming back. One of the major leagues in this world is coming back this weekend. And so we are almost treating this podcast like its own mini season preview. Nine Games remaining. And so we're going to give you five questions to kind of detail. The remainder of the season his final sprint. I think it's more of a case of previously on the Bundesliga rather than a preview. I think it's a nice little little thing to to wet the appetite for the weekend and also I think it's great for US Andrew because it's a league that gets short shrift from us because of the the behemoth Premier League and often I've watched games like adult drab lester so again and then I i. It's wrong twelve thirty thinking over in. It's maybe the second half of a brilliant thing game and I'm like why am I watching more of this? And then we get. We get the chance to kind of focus in on it. I'm excited actually. It's GonNa be fun by the way. I think you're witnessing history right now. You can see me through this this this program we use. I think this is the longest that my hair has actually ever been in my entire life. What he thinks about while. I actually think it suits you. I think it's I mean you've got nice hair anyway I would venture to say I would say at some point though knowing you. The sides will become too unkempt for your ears create. It'll create an ear problem. I'm I'm I'm in that area too. I've had on because my hair is just a greasy mass. I don't go outside. I'm looking at troll. Under a bridge I will be doing on either Thursday or Friday. I will be doing the home haircut. I've I can go no further. I've bought the conair clippers. It will be happening so shooting for more hair co taught next week when I when I clearly have to shave it off because I butchered it Godspeed by the way I wanted to follow up on something so I'm not I won't use his name. Casey didn't want it out there. But a buddy of mine you know as well works in the advertising world he helps right and create commercials that you have all seen and so. He texted me because he listened to our last podcast and he actually loved our conversation about what happened in the ad world and he kind of gave me a little bit like we talked. We kind of mocked what the AD world going wrong with krona virus. How every single company simultaneously came out with the same exact commercial emotional piano emotional. Play that all in this together emotional plea to buy their product. They all did it. And so he He said to me he said Yeah. Most good agencies ad agencies tried to tell their that this was happening that all of these companies were demanding the same type of ads but most clients didn't care and wanted anyway. I mean that's incredible to me because they've all melded together into one ad. Which is basically this product loves you. This products being there for you through the hard times. Chua a shot of the troops at Kua shot of hospital. Curious shot of a child being lifted up all those things that are you know that touch our hearts drinks very much in that are very close to us but this company will be there for you in the sense that we will continue to take your money for that kind of and then leave and but it was. I thought it was cool him to kind of. Give me like the backstory that yes well he basically saying yes we are. All everyone in. Advertising is keenly aware of. What's happening and we're trying to kind of move into a different direction. Thank him for the thanks for the insight That's really good and I would just like to say that. I have an intro for our Bundesliga chat. Are you ready? Oh welcome to good. Good having the Bundesliga back so here we go five questions about the return of the Bundesliga. Now here's the first one and I really. I said we're GONNA talk soccer and will but I do think that it is important for fans who haven't been following every step of the way. Just exactly what protocols are going to be in place for when the League returns and I think it's important for people to kind of know when they turn on their. Tv's like what they should be expecting to see because this is all whatever you remember from nine weeks ago in the way things looked. It's going to be different now so here. It is so the first question is what is the Bundesliga's actual plan in returning. So I kind of have it all here for you and jump in. Jj whenever you want. I'm GonNa just roll through this until you stop me. So Saturday is when it really begins. Borussia Dortmund shock is probably your most marquee match huge Darby. You're the key things to know like we said this is GonNa be a sprint. The plan is for everyone to be finished by June twenty-seventh so that is nine games in seven weeks plus there's rumors of one and a half the DSP POCO semifinals completed by then as well. So you're talking about cramming in ten matchdays within seven weeks. That is a lot. There will obviously be no fans in stadiums. You all know that teams are going to be allowed five substitutions per match now. Here's some of the interesting quirks. No more than three hundred and twenty two people will be allowed into the stadium for a game and within that three hundred twenty two essentially breaks down to this. They've they've gone deep here. Ninety eight people allowed pitch side that includes the teams referees all that Var officials Hundred fifteen in the stands which I think is a lot of security personnel And then one hundred nine outside of the stadium and this includes everyone from Tv personnel vard. More Vortex engineers things like that so essentially. They've said that there are basically three hundred. Twenty two essential people to make a game televised game of football. Go off now. There's also been reports that there's going to be random checks from club medical personnel to ensure that players are observing all the proper guidelines. When they're not at the stadium in terms of social distancing. So now here's some of the things that I know. People are wondering about. So what will happen when a goal is scored were so used to seeing hugging high? Fiving team celebrations. Allow me to read this to you from ESPN JJ and this is stuff that I really find. Jarring the Bundesliga told the club's on Friday that players are not allowed to celebrate together exchange high fives or embrace quote. Short contact with elbow or foot is permitted. The players are so creative. I'm excited to see what will happen if somebody scores. Phobic says that's Freddy Boba. Sporting director from on-track Frankfurt players are also asked not to spit other than during rehydration. So that is what will happen after a goal is scored short contact with elbow or foot. We're going to see some funky chicken dances. I think the elbow can touch the funky chicken as we know again. Very nice very cool but it was the same as taking up the handshake in the Premier League game. And then you're GONNA start crashing into people in tackles for over nineteen minutes. Well what I'm curious about is so and there's more than I want to get to but I wanted to ask you specifically what like so. Let's say they disobey that. The referees have been read into this if players are hugging like are the referees within their rights to to hand out a yellow card. If this is an order. That's been handed down than that if the referees have been told to to regulate celebrations in the same way. If you take Your Jersey off the referees of being told to give yellowcard then I guess I guess they will but this. This is so name and silly. When you consider that you're going to be man-marking someone cheek-to-jowl on a corner kick. It's a celebration minimizing risk. I don't know all right also this fans because there's concern now. Okay no fans in the stadium. You know how passionate these fans are. They're gonNA show up like we saw with PS G. Well not so fast my friend to quote Lee Corso fans show up in large groups outside the stadium. Their team will automatically lose that match so up to this point. Brunettes League officials team officials said that they've heard nothing whether it be on social media or wherever that their fan bases are intending to do this so it seems like two now. We'll see what happens on Saturday up to now. Everybody is planning on following the rules. Now here's the big one and this is. This is a tough one. What if somebody tests positive? I think this is what leads. All around the world in every sport had been grappling with. How do we handle this eventuality? Which is almost a certainty. I feel like So I've seen some conflicting numbers here but I'm GONNA go with. Espn is reporting. That a player will be players are going to be tested twice a week the day before a match and then another day during the week. And if there's a midweek match they'll be tested the day before that mid week match. Now here's where it gets kind of confusing if a player test positive they're gonNA go into quarantine for mandatory fourteen days along with anyone that they've been in contact with Being stressed that this does not mean in tire team will have their matches put on hold however it's confusing because in the second division right now in Germany. They're dealing with this already dynamo. Dresden just had two players test positive and the entire club is going into quarantine thus putting their return on. Hold so to me. It almost looks like Dresden. Is Setting the precedent here whether or not the Bundesliga is telling you that this is what's going to happen if that's already what a club has deemed to be the safest course of action will will it be okay for another club to not do the same. I don't know what they're basically saying is a player test positive. They're going to ask that player. The people he's been in contact with and they're kind of categorizing the level of that contact if you were in direct contact with somebody for fifteen minutes or more. They're saying that person also needs to go into quarantine. This is going to be this to me. This is going to be. The hard part is managing this kind of situation. Because I don't know I don't know what's right. I don't I'm not a doctor. I can't tell you what the proper amount of time is before the virus could become dangerous to somebody you've been in contact with. I have no idea and I don't know if these wounds legal officials know either so people are going to be relying on local health officials. The government for for what their standard is and they're just bay are the Guinea pig now for the world will find out if this is good enough or not yet. The eyes of the world are the football word at least in the sporting more will be on the Bundesliga this weekend. Finally just before we move on from this. It's been report. Players will drive to home games rather than travel together while people carriers will bring them in small groups to away matches. It has also been reported as you said. Medical professionals will turn up without warning to make sure they're observing the guidelines on to make sure that incidents like the solemn Kalou incident where he don't happen again but anyway let's get to the vehicle. We'll hang on before we do that. I do have one more thing because I do think that this is important too. I want to read you one thing and then I swear we'll focus on football but I'm reading stuff about this and I just want to say that I I really really hope that. They're getting back to games because they truly believe they're in a place where it's safe to do so and not because other forces are play this is from. Espn FC JJ. They write as many as eighteen of the thirty six teams. In Germany's top. Two divisions could have faced severe financial difficulties had the league's not returned the season according to Boondocks. Ceo Christian Cypher. He said if the leagues were cancelled they would lose in the region of eight hundred million dollars now. Hans Yo came wasco Bruce Dorfman. Ceo said ominously. The Bundesliga would not exist in its current form if the season was canceled. This what the DFL executive committee said in April and their quote was we do not want economic crisis to lead to structural damage that could be irreparable and radically changed the face of professional football and so getting the Games back on television. Even without spectators was established as a priority. I just hope I know money's important Not going to be so naive to not think that. But if they're doing this because money trump's safety then that I don't know I'm going to choose to trust them Andrew. Of course it's about the money. It is a massive part of it. And they've even began talks about how they need to restructure German football. So it doesn't happen again so if there is a crisis. They're not so beholden to the final payment from a TV company which ultimately controls fit their face. I would just say this before we move on if there is a country that I have faith in to execute diligent scientific protocol to make a league safe. It's Germany and that is just based on what I know about them based on their leaders and their their prime minister. They're they're President who is a scientists are so this is this is a frigging Black Mirror episode. Like that show isn't isn't like I never want anymore. I never watched it but I feel like that show. It's this is all become so real that that shows not even interesting anymore. What else Israel? Andrew what football football Israel. I'm sorry with with bogging you down with important and pertinent information. I'm stuck head I can't do much more of it. I'm at breaking point with this stuff. All right so and there's a constituency of people out there that will be in our DM's you're scaring people whatever we do this so I'm not scaring anybody. I'm giving the information I agree you are is. I'm not speculating. I'm just saying this is what the Bundesliga is going to look like when it comes back. Okay here's the animals alright for second question. I football question. Just how much is this? Byron's title to lose and that's such an interesting question and I think usually it's not an interesting question because they've had their seasons on both. They've had their bit of upheaval with new manager. Bought it's typical Byron. We've come into the business ended the season or rather a little bit later and therefore points there at the top but yeah we should go through. What the top of the table actually looks like byner on top fifty five points Bruder second on fifty one RB Leipzig next with fifty Borussia. Moenchengladbach aren't fourth on forty nine. So you don't even mention Gladbach at forty nine points like is it likely no but I still would say that. They're part of this title race. But if you rewind weeks and say things are absolutely normal and you go into the next Bundesliga match week. I'm expecting Barron Munich to win. I'm expecting them to go on and win. The league like they have in previous despite their early season upheavals. No we've had this break and so there's a few questions that need to be asked. So how might that affect? Is striker like Robert Lantos ski? Who was in top form? I'm we say. For example Thomas Muller who is being rejuvenated since Hassi Flick took the job. How does a new manager bounce worked for Hansi Flick when the bounces being interrupted by mobile no longer? The ball has stopped announcing well. Yeah but I mean are the things that he implemented that that really turned Munich season around. Are those things going to kick into gear when we go back playing football now? Younger players like Nabri Davis. I don't think they get roast but maybe say someone like Jerome Boy. Tang gets a little bit of rust. How're players affected by no games in two months so ordinarily I would say this is barren fight to lose but all these kind of intangibles we really have no answers for so I suppose from that point of view we don't know you're right but look ultimately though. I do believe that when you're buying Munich you've won seven straight titles and you have a four point lead with nine matches to go. I mean ultimately yes. I'm not saying that it's not in question but it is right now. They're title to lose. They have a fairly difficult schedule from here on out. They still have to go to Bruce. Dorfman after two Beyer Leverkusen they'll host Gladbach so that's three of the top five that they still do have to play now. Look going to Dortmund in an empty stadium. I don't know is. Is that still a disadvantage going there without fans being? They're not really. I guess other than the fact that it's not their own stadium that they're used to but no fans. I don't know how much it's GonNa even Matter Road Games Verse Home Games. The thing that you bring up it's interesting to me. Is the the question of form like we've had this two month to month gap so does form even matter? I? I'm looking at Byron's. Most recent results their last four matches before this coming weekend to nil over. Augsburg a win one win over Schulkin in the cup six nil win back in the League over. Hoffa Heim and then that three nil win at Stanford Bridge Against Chelsea in the Champions League they haven't lost since December seven th and that was against Gladbach so in Gladbach so no shame in that necessarily they've had only one draw in that span which against Leipzig. So they've been truly dominant for months now but like I said. Does that form come to just kind of like screeching halt kicked ball. You don't have match fitness so we are entering in imagine starting next season if teams and players hadn't done a full preseason. We're kind of not zone. There's only so much they'll have been able to do in the controlled environment that they've had to train in the last few days so it fascinating that question. I don't know maybe barons rhythm is is is upset and it opens the door for Dortmund to do something. Maybe I guess before we move to the next one. I kind of in a moment like this. Lean on the idea of this is the same situation for everyone. Everyone is dealt with the same gap. These training issues anti stadiums. So I kinda just in a moment like that you throw out like momentum neutra variables and you just. Kinda have to lean on okay. Who Actually has the best team? Who's the most talented team? And I still think as good as Dorman and Leipzig are still think that it's Barnum unit and with them being spotted a four point lead. They're still going to be my pick. Go on and do this next one. Yes Sir all right. Which player are you most excited about watching? I want to start to caveat straightaway. I'm excited about this brochure. Dortmund Team Giovanni Riina Jen Sancho Holland. Obviously they are look. They're going to be box office. They are box office already. But I WANNA talk about Miller Rashiq out of Vertebra Andrew. Ten goals and five assists across a very tough season for Virga brench now. He's a busy energetic forward. He plays off the left hand side. He's in demand everywhere including Red Liverpool and West Ham strangely and rb Leipzig. Apparently because you can get him cheap. There's something in his contract that says he could move for thirty million and a twenty three years of age he just seems like the modern footballer. That would play into three upfront anytime. I've I've tuned into watch further and he's been such a lively presence and if they're going to stay up they need them to really restart. This season. Strong Hives Leverkusen will be stiff opposition to restart with but he's a key player here Andrew. I don't need to tell you. Verner Brennan Josh Sergeant on the guys are in serious trouble there. Seventeen to the table on gem four points off for Tuna Docile Darfur relegation playoff position. So you know this is this is really bad. And if you'd said at the start of the season while Verte Bremen are gonNA finish below Berlin. I mean I wouldn't have believed it. But that's a that's really possible now and this was a manager. Their manager at the start of the season was talking about euro per league spots new. So will they've been. They've been horrifying defensively given up. I think they've got more goals than anybody in the league up to this point. Yeah and they've got a decent squad. They've got a solid enough squad but the problem is you know if you're leaky at the back you're going to end up in these kind of Struggle Regina for me as a grit there to watch on at the risk of you know kind of he reminds me of a player that could come into like a Uragan klopp style on unfit in seamlessly. He's not going to player. Let's see I went over to Leipzig with Christopher and Kuku from rb lights you know the website who scored dot com. They keep track of players form from leads all over the world so over. His last six appearances and conquer the only player in the League in the Bundesliga with an average rating above eight at eight point zero nine which is honestly that's astounding for that number over six games. He's only twenty. Two years old started out. The season is kind of a fringe starter for them. And now you simply can't take him out fifteen assists So far in the season five in his last six games before the stoppage. But sometimes the stat that I like even more For a playmaker like Kuku isn't necessarily the assist because you're kind of relying on somebody else to finish the job that you started. I kinda like key passes in. His last Games is at four point seven per match. That is by far best in the League in this window. Just to put that number in perspective overall for the entire season across Europe's top. Five Leagues. Dmitri Pyatt is I At four per game so I know to smaller sample size and Kuku hasn't six Just six games but four point seven tells you just how good of a number of that is. He is consistently putting guys in the right positions to score goals. So he would be somebody for May like I. I agree with you. Ultimately I think Borussia Dortmund is is true box office. There were a Lotta guys that I could have chosen from them. Like when they're playing. I feel like no matter what that's kind of the game that I feel like I'm going to gravitate towards but rb. Leipzig is right there in this title race. Oh Christopher Kuku somebody would put on your radar. Only twenty two years old also Premier League fans. So you know these big clubs with all their money are gonNA come calling for guys like him at some point next question. Which remaining match are you most excited for Saturday? June twentieth? Twenty twenty or be Leipzig. Who were right in the mix in this race will host Borussia Dortmund? We chose the same one. God Adam let me let let me just let over people If if you want exciting football you know in Europe. And in the Bundesliga this season or be Leipzig under NATO's men have been pretty much one of the teams to watch us to watch. And you know if you look at Borussia Dortmund look at all these young players. I'm about to list off all in on one field playing against each other. So you've got sasho Holland GAMY BRANDT VERSUS TIM O. Warriner bits are schick atoms for spark. I mean this just could be real fun. And I'm assuming the likes of Russia Dortmund are gonNA still be in the mix comb the penultimate game the disease. It's the second to last game of the year so yeah I would agree and the race remember to the race. The top four race is not settle. 'cause Beyer Leverkusen is right there and fit right for one of these two teams even if they fallen out of the title race. Second the last game of the year got to believe one of them may still be battling to stay up For Champions League places Yeah you mentioned all that you say it's funny you cut. How did you determine you said this could be really exciting? Well I would tell you it already has been because when these two teams face back in December. It ended three three. It was one of the Games of the year. Bruce Dorfman throughway to nil lead early on. Komo verner score two goals in the first eight minutes of the second-half tie it than Jaden Sancho put. Dortmund back up front. And then Patrick. Schick in the seventy eighth foot home rebound to level up at three three thrilling game who was in the pouring rain. Leipzig had a goal. Taken off for For A close offsides call. It was just up and down like you said you mentioned all the names just like high drama and now yet you throw Gio Raina and Erling Holland into the next. Two guys who weren't obviously Holland wasn't a part of it at that point. Raina was not really a first team for Doorman yet. So yeah that was the one that I circle to. And it's funny because Byron still do play Borussia Dortmund on matchday twenty eight which is always one of the Marquis Games of the year but yeah I went to Leipzig as well. Forget Dortmund's propensity to be brilliant going forward and give up a lot of chances is just. It's mouth watering. When you consider NATO's Manny's tactical ability and and the way they always play or more or less always play on the Front Foot Greg Game. Yeah all right last one for the American centric Fan. Is this actually the best league to have come back? There's no question for me. Andrew Weston mckennie tighter atoms date. You look at those two central midfield players. We expect an how crucial we think they will be in the future of the US. Men's national team. This gives us a chance to really hone in on them unto watch them. You've got Josh Sergeant. Who's at this weird moment in his career where I honestly don't believe he's out and out goalscorer but he needs to come up. Big Goals is only three this season. Vertebra in a relegation bound team. And you just look at the obviously the emerges of g arena. You could say the spine from centre forward number ten Josh Sergeant to the midfield to maybe even another number ten or more creative midfielder and Geoana attacking player you've got like almost the spine of the future for the US men's national now. If you WANNA throw in John Brooks I for center back then you truly have a spine absolutely and if you WANNA go with goalkeeper. I know he's injured. So that's unfortunate but ZAC staff and we'll be laying out for Fortuna Dusseldorf so but if you did imagine he was fit then the keys to the future for this. Your spends asking team are playing in Germany. So this is obviously the league to Also that guy at Chelsea but your point Oh yes I'll come on you. I just need to let people know that. Jj did not forget about the Christian Pulisic. So I was reading Stars and Stripes. Fc Their blog about American soccer and they were writing about this and they said between the first and second divisions of German football you want to guess. How many clubs have at least one American on their roster Fifteen eighteen so essentially half so? Yes this if you're an American if you are somebody who just loves American Soccer. Yes this is. This is the league The guy you mentioned. I'm so curious. Jj I wonder if you are to about Gio Raina because like what a weird time to have this all kind of go away like you've you've just broken through and are playing at this high level. Remember the goal that he set up in the Champions League first leg against PS G. Y. The goal that he scored of course against Vertebrae Yeah so I mean he was really beginning to emerge and then boop just taken out from under him I just you know we keep talking about forum I I. I hope so badly that at least for this season not permanently but hope this hasn't stunted whatever sort of forward momentum. He was building Heading into the final stretch. I don't think I think that will affect players at the other end of their careers more sudden stoppage rather than the younger players. I wouldn't worry hugely about that. There was a cool feature on. Espn about go raina. Just sort of like diving into what his life has been like Before this corona virus and kind of now into it. It's him an early Holland it makes sense. They're both like to the youngest guys on the team. Dave apparently struck up a great friendship where I didn't know this but Raina I guess is too young to be able to drive right now. In Germany so Holland has served as his chauffeur and it sounds like Holland. Raina and Jaden Sancho have become like fast friends. How can we become friends with them and hang out with them? I need them to be my friend. Thing your we've been sure too much andrew for that there's more than a decade between us and them and that that hurts us in the becoming friends with young rising star. Now you're right like georamas seventeen. I can't like I could be his dad. Well I prefer. The daddy actually has he. Is he had a much better. I touch thing you by the way he's as we've met his father. I met a dot on several occasions. Now and he's just a very calm. Level-headed person. Oh my God. He's such a nice man. He is indeed. And you mentioned just sergeant through. I just wanted to. I kind of like a not not rooting for anything bad. Obviously to happen to Verte Brennan but I sort of liked that Josh. Sergeant is going to be thrown into some really really high stakes. Important matches like him rise to the occasion and now they don't get a chance to defend themselves because the Fox broadcast team will not be on the broadcast going forward. But I saw an argument between can't quite remember who it was but it was. It was Ian. Ian Joy was arguing that he needs to score more goals. He needs to do this or do that. I actually think he is the second Stryker. If you pay up front and I think he's a link man I think he's actually more creative force than he is. A note goal score always said that I have always said that. The best moments you've seen from him is not being scoring goals on he. He's got that in his locker. It's more more linking the play dropping off. And he does that for note. There's veterans verb classes and. There's no resigned in the midfield. That maybe need to to find him. Are they need to find a relationship? With Watt. Sergeant is doing but I think he brings more than just goals and it's unfortunate. Now that the pressure the only metric may be measured by unless it's assists will be goals because they need goals badly also last bit on this did you see what. Western mckinney said the other day to zone except for me the next goal is England is always been my dream to play in the premier league. Well this is your chance to To Be Seen Weston. You're doing fine western. You're doing fine so there you go Bundesliga kicks off this weekend. All I haven't seen the actual channel listings but it's a Fox lead here in the United States so Checkout F S ONE F S to wonder if regular Fox like what is regular Fox. Going TO BE AIRING. That is so important that time of day on. Weekends. They couldn't be airing. Whatever the Marquee Bundesliga matches feel they should. They should get on that. Yeah actually. Why are the airing dishes that throat on their? What's the worst that can happen right? Why not man? I can't wait like this is actual games of of importance. It's GonNa it's GonNa look weird at first but I I don't know I think we'll get used to it sadly like I don't want to get used to not seeing fans at games like fans and soccer sports in general are such a huge part of the action and the atmosphere and like I don't know I just love that element other but you know right. Now we're kind of sports fans like beggars can't be choosers. Like this is what it is. We're going to enjoy it. Look people can't complain. It's live competitive football. Just watch it. Yeah let's see we'll get to James Montague and just a couple minutes but there's a couple other quick things both in mls and in the Premier League that we felt like we needed to be mentioned here Wanted to mention. Mls I jj sounds like. They're getting closer to at least having plan whether or not this is made official. I guess we'll find out in the coming days but right now it's being reported that what they ideally would like to have everyone go to. Disney's wide world of Sports Complex so all teams will go there and start training on around June first. So they'll all be in this. Mls bubble at Disneyworld and then in lieu of a season. They're looking at a tournament involving all twenty six teams which would begin somewhere like three to four weeks after this training begins multiple sources told. Espn that one proposed format for the tournament with see the League's teams divided into groups with each team playing around five games during the group stage. This would be followed by a knockout stage with constellation games stage to make sure each team played the same number of matches so obviously soccer fans are familiar with this kind of format Here's what I would say about it. I you know moments ago. I just got finished saying beggars can't be choosers. And that certainly applies here These are crazy times. You take what you get and be happy with it and I will be and I will watch this and it'll be cool and fun. However it's such an extreme break from the norm in terms of the League itself that like I'll like it and if if if the Philadelphia Union or to go on and win I'll be happy about it but this this season if they do kind of have a season of this format it will always carry an asterisk like it would be hard for a team to win the season and like go on telling everyone. Yeah we also have an MLS Cup like this feels like a fun thing that is of just separate unto the League itself. I think if it gets viewership and the tournament is a success or broadly enjoyed by fan bases. Mls have no no qualms with having truncated regular season and then a an almost march madness style twice. Odd you've lost your so that's it now so get this so if people watch this what would ever be the the gauge to determine that this is now going to replace the League as we know it. This is this. Is You throwing hot? Takes out there? I Honestly Andrew. Until we see a full proposal them for what they're going to do in their tournament. I don't know I'm I'm kind of with you. we'll see what they do. What's what's interesting is the news? That's com today. I suppose not really news with Syria. I hope for a June. Thirteenth return again pending. It's important yeah. But it's it's pending. Government Vosa was see how that goes and then their sources saying that the the championship will return before the Premier League And then I saw a counter report to that. Championship is having a kind of a flight within itself in the AFL along the same lines as the primarily fight which is over the relegated teams wanting to remove relegation because of possible neutral venues indicates that the championship. They just want relegation removed from this season. Which I don't know how it's going to work. And then another conflicting report. We all thought it would be neutral. Grounds for the Premier League restart but ATV issued this at six thirteen pm. Today are yesterday was testimony so yesterday police are open to finishing the premier league season. Homegrown is after all the Premier League campaign to scrap the plan for neutral venues appears to have been successful. Sources said the country's top football police officer Deputy Chief Constable Mark Roberts has softened his stance on insisting that behind closed doors matches to finish. The season are not played at home. That was a security issue again about Fines congregating outside. So that seems to be a another. I won't say spanner in the works flying the Something else that's cropped up. We'll have to see whether the police stick with that or not but yeah I mean. I don't know I'm seeing so many conflicting things day today. This project Greece dark does not seem as sentenced on our as thoroughly thought out as we thought it had or I thirty agreed upon. I think is is really the question definitely. That's their problem right now. Is I don't know that the players we've been hearing this but I don't know that the players want this right now. daddy rose weighing in saying football. Shouldn't even be spoken about until the numbers have dropped. Massively people's lives are at risk ream sterling also weighed in saying the moment we do go back just needs to be a moment where it's not just for footballing reasons which you and. I kind of talked about earlier It's safe for not just UH footballers. But the whole medical staff referees He said this on his youtube channel sterling went on. I don't know how that's GonNa work but I feel like once that side of the people safety and the players safety is secured and their wellbeing as looked after that. That's the right time to go back until then I'm how can I say not scared but reserved and thinking what the worst outcome could be so some of these guys you know. Danny Rose Raheem Sterling. These are prominent names. Aren't they're not like yeah. Let's go let's get back out there and play. That's that's I'm sure they're not alone in feeling that way. Andrew this is nothing new. We heard this two weeks ago from Sergio Aguayo that there clearly is a groundswell of opinion amongst players. That they're really they have reservations about going back and and like you said before. And IT'S THE SALIENT POINT. Going back for the right reasons You know I don't necessarily believe from from the data that I've seen think that corona virus could affect detrimentally somebody in their twenties or in their thirties as a professional athlete. But at the same time I'm reading articles about how one of the key problems that medical professionals are having with this virus is that in some cases attacks people as old as are as young as thirty seven or thirty eight. It causes blood clots. It causes all sorts of attacks. Some of the major organs. It's different in different organs for a lot of people and we can't say for sure that every single premier league footballer that sets onto the field is one hundred percent safe and they have every right to voice their concerns of this while there you go so I guess for now like the Premier League with the championship within the last Even Italy like you mentioned Spain like we still don't know what we don't know so for now the focus it's next week we'll be doing a podcast we'll be recapping soccer action from the Bundesliga so great. That's good man. Brilliant and honestly with the stuff we've been doing. We have not been still for soccer talk in a way in a way this season the football never ends G.

J. around the World Cup. He was he was in Croatia. He was in Belgrade and he joined us to talk about how Croatia I've been this footballing miracle from such a small population rising from the ashes of the war to to create a team. That goes all the way to a World Cup final yet. But he's a renowned author renown journalists one of our favorite guys to talk about this sport with and really to talk about we. We've always enjoyed talking fan culture with him so he's Kinda taken that passionate and just gone all in on it and he's written this unbelievable book about Ultras It's called one. Three one two among the ultras and the explosive inside story of the world's most extreme fans I it's a fascinating look. I can't wait to talk about at the one three one two. It's like this code within ultra culture. It's like a kind of an like an anti police code within ultras and it's sort of just like a thing that they share among one another. Yeah they use the use codes a lot in ultra Unin fire right fringe culture. They'll have numbers to denote. Certain things dates names and things like that. And this is one of the yeah. There's certainly a lot going on with ultra culture that we that we've spoken about it length that we don't necessarily agree with but James was was embedded within this and can kind of share the INS and outs of what it's all about and we're really excited talk to him now about this book. James Montague back on the show James. What's up man? How are you off a pretty decent certain? Yeah it's been. It's been two months of the lockdown and I guess we're all in the same boat but you know I've I've planned my escape back cones Istanbul so I think in two weeks maybe we be on the move but I mean England now and hopefully. Yeah hopefully things change. I mean it get better at some point. Yeah Yeah You talked about how you've been on the move so much. I was actually curious because I know for this book. You're traveling was so extensive. I mean like if what we're in now had happened. Whenever you wouldn't have been able to write this book right like are screwed. I it would have stopped. I mean in a way. What's interesting about ultra culture is the of? It's a coach that exists could. Have you know attached to put boob in many respects except was well? I you actually think. Few stories about kind of charitable work could incidents that? Oh Treasury could be involved in like I didn't instant grab where the five blue boys of of Tina Bozo grab. Were actually if you heard. This doesn't earthquake there few about six weeks ago and I rushed to the hospital when we're involved in like evacuates yet and stuff and there's been lots of German ultra groups who vote in like a rising money full. Pp for health workers getting food for them and stuff. So there has been you know still goes on but it wouldn't have been World has now become very very small whereas before they said no just this book I mean every other book in my writing you know it was a very big could go anywhere. I kind of lucky for that and so now. My world is literally. I reckon. Two hundred meters in diameter right in. And so. Yeah if this happened a year ago then that book yet. This probably wouldn't be finished before we get into the book itself which is absolutely fascinating. I've been enjoying reading it although not finished it yet. I've yet to get `Albania Indonesia and places like that which fascinated to see what kind of support culture is there an James? How would the ultras are the at least the people that you have talked to and communicate and being amongst for writing this book? How will they take the resumption of Leagues Without Fans in the stadium? Quite badly We've already seen that. I mean one of the things that either does big chapter Germany and the reason. Why focusing on Germany's because it has I mean they have pretty much the most politically active out your seat in the world. I mean it's fantastic when you see. There's some of this far left this fall right. There's a lot of key Especially the fall right is. There is some trumpeting connections but even the the groups the from a kaleidoscope of political backgrounds old could have campaign on very similar issue so against ticket prices. You know a Monday night football. Which is you know against working. People will keep. Let's take Monday off if they want to travel around Germany Logistic like the the ownership structure in German for fifty plus one which is quite complex. Pau beans the power kicked in the hands of the fines so so they always been involved in the decision making and as soon as they roost Now looks like it will be. The first major could a will lead to restart that that they dead against it know without without fans for nothing and I think there is a there is also a fed that took place this Pandemic and the lobby. What uses an excuse to take away the power from which is in German football. Because just before this happened that if you of this but there was a really interesting issue that took place involving at deep mall. Halt of yet of Hoffman. Heim and ultra is in Germany against often. Hyman AGAINST ALL BE LEIPZIG. Because they see the two teams is having around this find ownership multiple. They have this fifty plus a bit more complicated that but basically it gives them a little power and so the odors of being they. There was one matching particular. They're abusing hall from there giving him you know. There's a banner I mean it was quite distaste for us but it was interesting. Was the players start playing amongst themselves against Munich. And they're talking amongst themselves because they disagreed with the coaches are saying. There's a big debate with the ultra it going fall. I should be crackdown on and it was. It was a city debate ready because the main outages in Germany of German football honest the reason why Jovan boys the best fan experience in the world is the down to the ultras for keeping the ownership. Which is something you can't imagine in American sports but the fines. Kate owners feet to the fire on almost every single wishing and so. I can I can see the fans that against the every out to group is against it saving. It's in Atlanta's ultras of said. They have in the season of their lives. But the epicenter initially was in Burgum. Oh has one of the most famous ultra groups in the world pretty much like even though we're doing so good we called celebrating this win out our family. Oh people are dying so we also use these over whatever you decide today. So yeah across the world which is Trae much dead against it and Germany is going to be the first rule out ground for it James. The book itself is fascinating. But there's actually there's some questions I have for you just about almost worth like the process of having written the book now. You can tell me if I'm wrong but I guess my outsider. Perception of ultra culture. That it's just a little bit closed off to the mainstream And mainstream sports society so with that in mind I mean how cooperative were some of these groups to take you in. I mean you were essentially indebted among these ultra groups. Were they they were on board with all of this yeah. I had a few months ago. Something they wrote up offers like I was undercover I wasn't undercover was. I couldn't go on the cover that UPI sniff out in east and then and then I really would be in trouble. No I the reason why be on. I've always been fascinated by fan culture and and it's a weird thing to say but I agents read anything off right for the written for the bleacher poll the Times you know. I never really actually about football. You know so so case. Is You know it's everything around it and I've always found that the fines of always been the most fascinating Interesting Paul of it. So over the past fifteen years traveling around going quite obscure places I think going quite deep into law the stories that I've done a uppercut of network of contacts. No doubt I was always aware of outside and I'd never really be truly taking in as one of them. I was allowed access to people who were the foundational figures within the Italian. Ultra Saline Within Argentina managed to speak to referee desire. Who'S THE HEAD OF LHASA? Which is the of Boca Juniors? He's he's he's he's a celebrity in Argentina but also one of the most could've infamous family in the world. I so it was also about finding the right. People say it was. It was just a network of contacts that I can fill up over the years as a low tastes. I wrote this up late running the book but it all the time. I turned to why they didn't want anything to do with me. I'm so it was it was. I mean I lived in Belgrade until very recently. I have good friends WHO RITZ FINES. Many of the India. Who which is the ultras group that you know it even someone that they trusted a new and you would have a beer with. I was British journalists. You know there's just no way we can do anything so were they. Were tools that were close to me. They were Insane numbers were open space. Because of I I actually found one. Those one incident where I an interview with Diabolic Brit say. Who's the most the leader of the energy which is the far right's must neo? Nazi group of of of Dot Ca and we kind of we have a coincides to going back and forth took by doing the interview. And what can seal? The deal wasn't necessarily it was about the previous book. I've always told the previous Britain which was called the billionaires club which is about you know why the super rich taking over soccer. And how much a bad thing and how super-rich really just messed up wherever they go and that was an issue that widely in the whole shoe shape of the political spectrum with you electoral. On Your if you're on the fall like the fall right. That's an issue. They on their also writing against globalization railing against the super-rich. So it was. It was like okay. He's one of them We'll give you and so you know ends up. We have this crazy to our interview very intensive at the headquarters in Rome Way You know. He's very open. Very honest about Fascism and I mean when he gets out the call cases the headquarters he you know everybody gives him the Roman Salute With the next big portrait Mussalini it but but that would have been like to try on to think so but yeah it was just it was just crazy and then you know it was. It was a retains interview. Then three months later he was shot dead in a Paul him wrong because he was also involved in all sorts of extracurricular activities which you see in in the Italian ultra saying about astrology in Argentina is kind of moved into organized crime as well as far as politics so it was I think in the one hand once once she started speaking to some groups and they heard in spoken to people who conveyed in the same which diabolic caused by certain side of it then than that that kind of opened the doors for me as well so it was just. It was a very Hustle basically to not hustling in trying to get one over ninety one but like I was constantly thinking who to get what to do how to speak. Sometimes there's once on words in Morocco to meet someone and they can have ghosted me as soon as I got there. They will ghosted me because I turned up at one of the match. I've got the early so there was a a game before the Casablanca spiced by and I got there and the police immediately sold me kind of start questioning me. But oh the guys in the COF- soul the police talking to me and because they like intense police surveillance that was it it was it was not replied to go back to this day. I never got reply from any message. I've a right to them. So yeah it was. It was a hustle. But it was it was it was. It was the absolute best jams. You were talking about the doors that were open to you and one of the fascinating doors were open to you. Begins the chapter on the Italian ultras. And that's where you spoke to basically a lawyer for the ultra who represents ultras in. I think what we would call. Are We know as football banning orders? Yeah he was a former ultra himself. H. E. leads teach us. I mean he was kind of entry into Rome There's this one of the reasons why I manage. Speak to so many people if you guys cup of ninety Martinez La Big Galaxy. Fine but is Italian. American speaks at five languages. He's stuck polymath on a polyglot. Like Superintendent it should be built. Rocket ships are often be obsessed with football fan coaches which is which is what he what he is and you know. He's family advice enrollment so we we went around and he could have found these people speak so one of them. I've never heard of Lorenzo. Before we went and him and he'd he'd broken his leg. I like the interviews While he's just cancelled as used a broken. His leg in a in a moped acts. Call the Roman things. You can imagine anything like it more if it was in black and white in his statue of the Virgin Mary. The helicopter company to me. I it was Yes this guy was to me. The bridge between what happens when you're not notre which basically you're always an ultra ultra sounds like a youth. See this is one of the biggest youth movements in the world and continue grew up on the AS Roma Fan on the curve sued in the study Olympic had seen grown during its heyday in the one thousand nine hundred ninety s and then what happens when you get too old to go you family Commitments you call him. Ocho trains to go beyond you know to go beyond support your team in a insane white twenty four hours seven days a week but when you when you fully ECON do it anymore. And if he can't do anymore there's lots of other things that probably court wrong in your life but you looked out quite good middle ground. Which was his. He studied Spidla. He became a lawyer and then he decided to dedicate his life to overturning defeated like the banning orders. They ate in Italy to deal with the Oakland in the metoo thousands because he arrested how unfair it was because he is completely arbitrary. Mean one of the big things out around the world kick against this police control then some Casey's you can see why this police control because there is this constant friction between the two groups and you know the ultrasound They on they on angels they. This is a subculture that kicks against authorities of course authorities get a is gonNA kick back but still that doesn't give the police the Roy or the authorities royds put these autism place with there's no judicial oversight there is a human rights issue and he picked up on that and now that's his job that's what he does he's facing This little firm represents lawyers older ultras all around Italy from rival firms. Ultras groups can of overturning this these defeated because you know this original the original sin was him having in the first place so it was he was a fascinating character. Oldest two hours again in in his hospital bed these leg could a wingstop and And that to me you know that was. That was a good opening. That's a good opening place to understand Sorry Andrew Code across you just a just on one thing. They're JEN's we see this kind of a very solid framework in terms of. Let's just say Rolm politically speaking. We say lots your fire right there Mussalini supporters and roll. Na are are communists are left wing but it's much more malleable than that and it. It seems to change over the decades in the book it does and I think the identify if either guys afraid I mean Frankie full David go blots Simon Cooper these guys in I one of the Detroit to realize as well as these guys have been writing about the idea of football stadiums and terraces being really reflection of society or at least a certain structuring society and Italian stadiums. He's a brilliant example of that I drove is probably the best example you can give because yes the reason why that that political I think the exists is because let's fan base was representative kind of slightly out of suburbs Rome. That was much more right wing. But the inner city areas of Rome were bastions of the Communist Party could have ultra left-wing so when those groups arrived in the Curva sued. You know they. They took the names of of of of leftist political causes the days the feds. Ie for instance which is one of the one of my one of the main. You know stat. Surname was taken from from the Palestinian liberation struggle over the nineteen seventies which is a massive co celeb- for for the for the left of that time. But what happens? It's any changes changes. The inner city of Rome changes immigration becomes a much bigger. Political ISSUE IS EXPLOITED. And so those as as you know the fall of communism communism and socialism becomes a fall less popular political identity. You know then changes it moves right. Woodson roads and Roy. And then what you find. Is the Rowing Club? Cover sued then changes right with as well so now when you walk into. I mean you find. Left-wing rugby found a couple of left wing. Let's coaches as well. I mean they. They keep themselves themselves. But you know you find them. But what's interesting is is actually how similar these these two groups politically are I you know another thing. Is that the control so much that they don't really meet in the same way anymore Fly in the same way. Italian football is a very different place. What it was in the eighties and nineties even though TV companies love to make it. Look like it's you know pyro wooden drums. You know and Cappos but it has been you know they've kind of legislated the lifestyle of it but yeah it's that's that's something I know. It's almost in every stadium around the world is even in La AFC. You know the the the stadium. The Stein's presents the community comes from ends and to me find that I find that endlessly fascinating James One thing. I've always wondered about with some of these groups. The people within an ultra group. Do they love soccer? Like to a man or do they just kind of loved the culture that they're a part of I. A survey of both to be founded the further down the could appear maids. The goes you have the CAP. It's all put your foot soldiers below them. The the the ranking fall right in the ultras movement absolutely live and love that scene like religion. You know fought for it. Shed Blood for it. I just for the team but for the concept of having a subculture the is is outside of To control you know they will fight almost sometimes to the death to protect that and that is you know it's route that something that is based on an absolute love for. I mean in Italy case. Love Your belltower. You know. It's a love your city in your town but it's that team that really takes in without love so yes the root of it is but why found is the more that I spoke to people. Higher up the organizes the founders. You know. It's actually surprised how little they liked or enjoyed football. I'm how little they knew about football. And then you realize it. Wasn't you know people were attracted to it as well? Not just because of the football. They're attracted to it because they needed to be attracted to something they needed to be part of a game and it's the funding identity direction. Something that gives it gives them some hope in their lives And so it could have been a biker gang. It could've been you death metal. It could have been any any kind of graffiti. Could be any kind of subculture but they found themselves in in the ultras and I mean a family in Italy except I would often. I asked everybody basically the same question. Which is how do you define Notre Everybody struggled with it. Everybody like you can have a slightly different officer. You know d like lovable. I mean I remember when our all star Bollock they. He was like to be honest. I couldn't tell you if I play on. My I mean to Fahey being banned from the stadiums. Watch TV but then you know you come across someone like at the end of the chapter on Italy. I Il Botch WHO's the leader of Atlanta Ultras Then then it made sense to me before they lose all this stuff about crime in the connections of the fall right and then he may in Bochum who's probably the purest for the platonic ideal of a of a of a cafo. Who just has lived lived just to give his team. You know the the boost it needs from from the Stein's but also turned realized that the ultra still have a role to play in improving the lives of the people that are attracted to that subculture. So whether that's could. Have you know helping out drug addicts campaigning? To the homeless sickle is be banned from stadiums to twenty years. Now confront it off and so but there's every game in Bergamo you see graffiti you know free bought. Sure they have like twenty thousand people marched to let him to come back to the stadium so he's kind of like a folk hero in that town. So yeah I it's. It's you know there are people that made you question like why. B- vote in this but there are others. That's that's why I'll do it if I was if I was in. Burgum oh I would have followed that. The terrorist is no doubt about James. I'm in the midst of the chapter on Serbia and Red Star Belgrade in particular which which again so fascinating to me and actually is helping me understand the collapse of the former Yugoslavia. In a way that a lot of books haven't been able to do but one thing that comes through. Is that the defense in the seventies and eighties offer at starbucks grid. That will go on to to be alturas. They were influenced by English culture. And there's a there's a couple of moments I think it's with hijacks pledges well earlier in the book where they talk about certain English influences coming into their realm and them. Adopting them on my question to you is. Why has an English football reciprocated? There doesn't seem to be an ultra culture in English. Football and one of the reasons is because I mean we did have an indigenous fan coach. That was kind of a distillation away. I'll get tonight in a second but you know we had our hooligans and when you go I mean living in Belgrade's one of my good friend suggests that every single book this being written like there's a whole genre I'm not talking about among the thugs but there's a whole genre of like like excavate liked firm leaders who've written Barbara of all the up safe had around England's in the seventies nineteen thousands of books of them. You know they're not in Serbia. They're not kind of like translating. Can a Multi Mitch to translate those books? Because they sell well people love. That kind of stuff is bright. English hooliganism is still to this day. Still an extremely influential thing and I tried to watch expanding. The book is that ultras. It's not just Italy. I mean before. Then you had the office and the Tosa in Brazil and you had the hooliganism hooligans in England as well and so in a way. The fashion achieves as organization the LINGUA FRANCA. The psalms the PYRO. All these things get mashed up from all of them so the English British detox. This thing that was very well respected in this cross polarization because of globalization that gets sped up because it technology over the years but then what happens in England is that we have a series of stadium disasters hooliganism's out of control but we have We have Heizo. You know which which leads to British English teams being to the banned from European competition. Then we had hillsborough which has nothing to do with hooliganism by the police You know find some Liverpool campaigned tirelessly for decades to get justice for the people that were killed there It was the stadiums are in a really bad way. The police were treating people like animals. It's something has to change and so the that followed hillsborough basically ended. Everything it was known is no way that the that coach or that can have a more to the fan. Coach is rooted in the terraces that Get close to the community. That couldn't really survive that interest. Then you had all seater stadiums you had pre ticket prices going up cheaper priced out the game you know. It became mortgage payment product than it was a game. What was interesting. Is You know the reason why these fine culture exists everywhere will have addicts is because it was a space that people could could You know colonize. You can't do that in an seat to say you can't do ask candlestick but this kind of parks exist. No no no. We can't definitely can't do it there. But I'm just trying to think of American like Baseball Stadium and it's not a spicy. Could go and you know. Have a kind of like a sub coach there where you're kind of in control of your stadium. You know it's you know your ticket is your seat number and not say even by beard he come back and so added Off The hills burn off the start the premier league in tighter fool in everything that happens with English football there is no space fill subculture like just to come in and influence because if you look at Germany like the ultras come in and actually. That's what happened. They still space. They had a very hooligan influence seen until the late nineties. When people started watching Syria are free to heirloom German television and they thought coping and so now they have an ultra scene because they had a space that allowed it to develop whereas we never had that at. And what's what's most interesting. I think there's two things. He's the one who is English. And there's no chapter on hooligans in this but they are constant thread through the book is still hugely influential amongst youth around the world. I mean don't if you've ever watched green street sometimes called spree street hooligans which kind of people make a joke about it in England because it's Elijah Wood is could've American. Who was time you know people who are high? That's funny but in Indonesia. It was like it was a documentary to them. It was you know the funny thing I'll say about this as well as the the authorities a Salih almost every country that you know. The authorities struggled to control these whether it's the battle whether the the ultra wherever whichever group is they try to control they look to England as that's what we have to do. That's what we should do. That's how we cut this out. We follow that off. So it's Yeah. It's a complicated issue. But it's one like you do not coming into in England very much lower lower leagues. This is a big group in a celtics will space in Scottish football. So you very much in English thing but yet some said we had a very different circumstance could have means so possible for for fancying in talk. Division Put Down Roots in the same light. James One more from me. Your we talk about your travels for this. Were so extensive. Your access for this book was unbelievable. I'm just wondering you know you're running with some interesting characters here in the process of writing this. Did you ever have a moment where you kind of took a step back? And we're sort of thinking. I don't know if I should be here right now. There's a couple of women that was the end those in Indonesia. I was traveling across Java with the Osiris full procedure which is the biggest savings. Carter and those like an administrative mix-up from coach. We had to get off on the highway. We ended up getting chased by from Gaza. Michetti off is one of those. Yeah I arrived in the in the last chapter. Which is like. I'm like four thirty nine forty now so I'm about to hit forty running down an unlit highway somewhere. Between in the middle of JAL with fifty people. Screaming is terrifying. I'm just thinking like Kombi. Large icon die here. I like to I actually. You know thought there's no way out. Because they were chasing behind in a group came in front of us. So we're we're blocked I that we ended up getting out of it but I it's just like I was thinking about how his one thing saying? You go to war or daddy was a soldier. Always a war correspondent like fighting the good fight until the truth that what was happening around the world is a different thing to say you've been hacked to death on the side of a motorway by engineers Notre Like was that about. I saw that I mean quite quite interesting people in Ukraine and spent time with ultra sane. Was I mean it's ready connected to the fall roy? So Tom's spent a Lotta time around people who had very extreme views because you know out traditional centrist. They're you know they're they're they're on the fringes in we there's one instance Voted the or went to as an observer for the arranged fighting seen in Sweden and this is another thing that's the kind of like a subculture on the fringes of ultra culture. Is that there. There are literally thousands of people every weekend across your meeting up. In these highly organized fights in forests in forest clearings like away from the police even numbers. Ten hundred hundred. No weapons people like properly hinch. They're working out like the monsters. You know based out of ultraviolet very seeks very difficult get gave in I. I get involved in Sweden. But the other side didn't turn out who's be a seventy seventy brew up so the leader just like okay. Let's go to where they all and so we ended up and say you know ends up in a riot outside the pub Which was the police turnoff? I realize I'm not kept running away from the police. Because how am I going to explain that? So these the police that like. Oh it's not something you can pull the ripcord out in. Say A guy you know. I'm ready to leave now. Eat ME UP SCOTTY I it was. It was impossible so there were quite a few. I there many of those moments and they've made a few in my work can something that I I see it but I said to somebody else before but one was i. I read that maybe want to do this. Kind of stuff was homeys colonia but Joel and not necessarily do in that way immediate short in the neck. I WanNa try to avoid that as much as possible. He was. You know if you WanNa if you wanna find out about something about it then you've just go you just go throw yourself into date by saying that. I'm not sure I kind of do that Like old of my nine lives are up so I mean again. We're in the middle of pandemics. Maybe ninety decisions being taken out with me my go-to Rodney blogs about either no type seats or some ignite well jams thank God for the warm corporate embrace of L. AFC which which kind of saved you. From what I mean I love the AFC. I mean it was. It was at the end of this. You know I it. It was it. Been EXHAUSTING EMOTIONAL WRECK Arthur. Lots with my family have seen I I chose. Nfc Immune Club. And I was interested. How how you feel like an coach for nothing you know and you know American Fan. Cultures Sane is really plastic in in In Europe especially I I knew about it especially through Martinez and weed seen Atalanta. Sorry sorry I always Lines of mixed up. And you know I knew. Things are happening Clubs Athletic Club a guy that I knew Bradley from a going to Egypt and seeing him there and you can call well so sick night Bubka common. He could have put me in touch with a couple of the guys in the family. As on scene and to be honest it was like it was just incredible. Being bad you know they build something very real. You It was much enjoyable than guy in watching. English football match almost anywhere and it was you know is it. I'd seen it's a very patriarchal seen organize fan coach around the world. You know you don't see very many women it's particular diverse bunch you know. It's mainly can could've could've white working class men pretty much and this was. This was a place. Yeah overseas has strong light next feel to it but not just I mean the future right. I mean every every nation is there and so that's reflected in three to five to is I for me. The the best of it was. I mean I was there when they had a pride Stefo. Which would if try that at like Shalva. It'd be. I mean that from the bottom the stadium from the air. You know so You know they had that. And but the only that women in the Catholic Female Capos wanting particular member speaking to breezy. Who is just I mean? She's I mean she was taking up on it and she got into the cage and she was like I like fifteen foot like a Colossus. I and so it was like okay. This is this is one way we can. You can mix a Much more cooper environment than in Europe. But you can do that in a way. That still has some integrity. A Germany's no surprise that they look to Germany and Russia Influence from my experience in kid if they can maintain that you know I always keep an open that same Baha James Monarchy One. Three one two among the ultras. The explosive inside story of the world's most extreme fans is out nice being out for a few months oversee through the pandemic by there's going to be. Us Edition. I hope coming out in the full as well like well this is. This is a so-called I'm glad you're safe from having written the book from the current situation right now that we're all dealing with Thanks so much James. This is great appreciate appropriate anytime our thanks to James. Oh my God. What an incredible experience. Just the writing of this. This book was for him. My Sony. I only got the book yesterday so I. I flew through the chapters the initial chapters. I've read the Italian chapter. Which is stoning and the Serbian chapter is so so interesting. As I mentioned we didn't get to talk about fully about it but mean you are always saying how the break-up of the former Yugoslavia is something that we're not quite one hundred percent shore I would game. But when he discusses the I guess Yugoslavia before the war in terms of football and find culture. Your kind of breaks it down a little bit in that explanation on. I kind of understand it a bit worn up. Well historian about his experience in Indonesia being chased by people with machetes like this is the research that went into this was he's. He's clearly an authority on this topic. So Yeah Great. Stuff from James Gladis He's doing well. That's about it for me. Though the only other thing I wanted to mention something I just saw before we started recording tonight. That was once again. I don't know what category this goes under other than just like a weird few months that continue to go on at Tottenham a story tonight that Daily Allie was robbed at knife. Point after thieves broke into his home. In the early hours of Wednesday morning stealing thousands of pounds worth of jewellery of Tottenham midfielder was at his north London residence isolating from the Corona virus pandemic with his long-term his step and his girlfriend. Another friend is is leading with them. A scuffle ensued after two. Two men armed with knives entered the property after midnight. Police said a man in his twenty's believed to be. Allie was struck in the face and suffered minor injuries before the robbers took various items including expensive watches prior to fleeing alley has gone on social media and thank people for their support that it was a horrible experience. But everybody's okay for now just a little bit shook up but Jeez what a what a terrifying. Terrifying happened Gladis. Okay yeah and I got. Sounds like opportunists sued. I Guess Planet realized that things would be quiet during the lockdown. That's weird to me. Like you say opportunists but so when I I used to have a police officer who lived a cop who live next door to me and he was talking to us about how most how most robberies occur during the day because that's when robbers they they usually don't want an any kind of counter they just want to like get what they want to get and get out. He said when robberies happen at night. Those are the ones that that you have to be scared of more because that's when the burglar pretty much knows someone is going to be home and they're crazy enough they just don't care. Are they knew who was there? And they had enough people that they knew they could deal with it on overpower them. Not Study Scary. It's really scary. One thing before we get out get who's been watching the last dance on. Espn a net flicks. No did you see what he said about it. Now don't care you relates to Jordan. He's now he said something like now. People know what it is to work with a winner. You can either handle it or not. Yeah Okay Yeah I don't get that. When are you going to say a winner but not exactly a leader soul? Am The Manchester evening. News tweeted this out. Only GonNa Solve Shar on the last dance. It takes me back to when I was a player on the team. What Sir Alex Michael Jordan as a leader you think Roy Keane straightaway so many similarities to my see to my to my team seeing that team on I just I'm like okay all your other pages me now. I said there's two weeks ago last week was like the Roy. Keane episode it. Wants the bearing of the grudges. No men in the history of sport have borne grudges longer and harder than Roy. Keane and Michael Jordan like Jordan with who was at Bj what was his name. Ej Armstrong. He had stuff with Steve. Steve Kerr the face right on and I just think of Roy Keane. When he's asked to do a piece of analysis on Carlos Queiroz on the rainy team during the World Cup. What does he start talking about? He starts talking about the time. When Queer was coach at United that he threw him up front and didn't show any respect and he brings that grudge straightaway the similarities between these two men. We have to get them in a room. I was thinking we get them in a room with the Unfortunately we can't do it now. But with the dearly departed Jerry Stiller. I'm we have an airing of grievances. Yeah that's amazing. Oh good for you. So you were on this Speaking of which by the way I also saw I saw Gary Lineker. Jj had a a stream of tweets about his run in with Michael Jordan wants. I'm trying to find it here but I guess Jordan and a bunch of friends were in England and wanted access to some golf course that Gary Lineker was a member at so somehow Jordan got in touch with Lineker to get him in and so they all wound up playing around a golf together. It was it was a pretty cool pretty cool story. He goes through it. If you find it on his twitter timeline he kinda runs through like the sequence of events and just how cool Of An experience it was so. Yeah Pretty Neat so sad that there's only on Sunday is it for last. It's aimed me for the last five weeks. Jaba one of my one of the most interesting stories in all of sports is the subject of one of their upcoming for documentaries thirty fraternities and that's Lance Armstrong who. I just can't get enough really all. I've read so many books about him. I read his book. I've watched everything of documentary. That's their about him including the give me one. Which right now is on Netflix and available and not as the seminal account of of Lance Armstrong's Times and in some cases crimes. I suppose incredible. I'm really looking forward to the Armstrong documentary or good stuff. I'm looking forward to some Bundesliga. This weekend should be a a great time like I said. Just check out on your you know one of the best ones F S. Twos for games because they're becoming fast and furious. Hey this was fun man to you. I say check you later. Phone boy is good listening.

weeks ago which is already picked up seven hundred thousand subscribers Yovich is well doesn't escape the criticism that was coming his way he can a start he said to the game was very bad indeed recreated plenty of chances in the second half but we missed just about everything today we met a motivation B-team who don't deserve to be where they are in the table on the lineup he said well that is my decision but everybody has to show up and play well reels off to the game pulled very few punches about the team that lacked leadership and for some we'll be heading into Europa league

Dortmund, PSG win Super Cups

"Welcoming Selena Sedition E._S._P._N.. A._F._C. on Dan Thomas joined by shock when we welcome back right from his holiday. He's hanging out by the pool. We won't be around Disneyworld. Maybe some frozen concoction that Oh from the joy and happiness right that is lost through what happens in Lhasa gains the wells that I will start in Germany. It was a German super supercup Borussia Dortmund take on vine by Munich door lock key men missing their new signings not featuring buying going strong woman in Memo Noyo makes saying to deny Mark Royce. There's a good save minor Illinois and this really was <hes> sort of the story of the game that whenever by the ball in a bad area we're very dangerous <hes> Noah running further than shack at ever. That's not a career here is called but Uncle Sam his shot wide or at least boyd even by loose ball in a good area. This seemed to to find themselves. I have absolutely no idea but you've come to expect from Manuel. I mean he even by his standards us about six minutes. It makes the save to deny guerrero is a good say. It's good movement of the NATO good kick saved by mine ignore. Of course it's supposed to be a friendliest. We've just seen a chance hair in good couple of SEI's that that Cuba Steve's he is big. No question about it. Hits does very well indeed now an edge hair boom. It's on the Dole implies just looking to defend goalkeeper relax people relax a long season ahead in the first half three minutes after the break go James Sanchez great web from him as it up to make it one now Sandra does really well avoid avoid fish challenge and then keeps his balance here shifts a ball quickly cassia thirty vendors legs leave no absolutely no chance so good finish right background GOSSIP BRIAN THE CONAN no way keep his getting that into the fifty eighth minute can limit a needle good blocks around. There's a good run by Kinsley come on the far post. He gets across his offended by now. You gotta put it in the back of the net. He doesn't able to cut the ball bag is good defending blog initially and then as live on those goals for the rebound land the goalkeeper he gets together for that little something a little something extra they they didn't care for twenty minutes ago. J. Sancho picks up on the halfway line and goes all the way himself and brilliant goals make it soon in the end central doesn't need need help but again by Munich stretched Three v three at the back sound Joe Sherman everybody clean pair of heels and a good finisher noise lakes and seven minutes off that US should there have been a red card here. It was yellow that was given to came. Just look at this here we yeah it's very naughty and that should have been a red reggie thing one hundred percent they don't care they sell Cam Roussy Goldman to then buying Munich and nail pick out that fest but silverware of the season and certainly the team for the ninety minutes sitting in the second in half what we saw from buyer Munich was a lot of possession but it's a lot of possession that goes nowhere. It's a little sideways and sideways and back I consi- was again and then eventually they correct chance of but that's about it. The issues is one they have that extended period of possession and they start pushing numbers forward and there's a tendency for whereby Munich to lose the ball when Saddam was then able to go on the Counter Ville lack of athleticism in the back line by Byron was so clear to see so all of a sudden you find yourself tim putting himself in a situation where he loses the ball and he doesn't have the speed anymore to recover and Soula doesn't quite have the speed to recover either and then what is that out of losing the ball in a bad area Dayton such as getting behind and there's nobody catching him. There's nobody within ten yards of him by the time he goes and finishes the chance that it should not happen. Maybe species maybe we can say that's the case for by Munich but the truth of the matter is that wells is going to play in the back line if it's not board ten and solar at least in the center back position and so my concern for by Munich would be if you're not doing anything with the possession and you're not creating chances and then you lose a bowl and then you're straight and then you kind of attack tag on and you can't stop it because in the back line then how do you address playing against a team like throwing that thrives on that game transition jetting Sandra of course courtly I last season season looking to put in similar performances now. This campaign was superb today. He was And right now this by Munich defense has simply new answer for player of his qualities saying that this by Munich defense doesn't have any answers for anybody of any qualities by on this showing the truth is the highlights I think did by Munich a little bit of a feeble because as as much as the highlight suggests that that it's had saves to make an and he did when you see the game and you see by Munich in possession the didn't really challenge Dortmund or worry anywhere near as as much as you would think and then to at least points once Dortmund has the ball and gets going by Munich. It is all hands to the pump and you just feel the worst every every single time this Dortmund team that had a lot omissions by gets going meanwhile. Let's go to China shop because that was the venue for E._S._P._N.. Zone in the French super cow of course yes in China the exact log accents yeah yeah yeah all right now he was suspended in this game fits. All we'll speak about more in a moment though it would be renewed. Take the lead <hes> goal the beautiful from the right hand side and is this a knee bash. It looks like is it really gets across his defender Nevache. Take it ten minutes lights at should this being a red card for burn anti was given that should have been red card on a suspended Jesus Hinton. Look Oh my goodness who feet off the floor lounges done showing that is ridiculous challenge and holiday refugee laws that Georgia with just yellow is beyond me. Let's take it into the second half and he's signing probably Roddy playing anes Kilian mbappe combat pay one one. This is GonNa Rain I can handle Maria brought into things up and it would be given area in the seventy th minute with the free cake beautiful strike. This is wonderfully struck free-kick. Nothing anybody could do that now. He gets right now. Wait wait wait and Papa. Is I okay. That's enough for you often. Go go yeah. Take the space. You're blocking my light name rejoins writing everybody's happy R._V.. Everybody's happening. Considering NATO says he wants to leave she. We're getting rid of him. He's not happy I there's something about the chance to talk about. What's been going on last couple of weeks regardless of you? Whether you stand on it it is clear that wants to move away from Neymar Aimar whatever Neymar stands for the name our brand this whole idea of him being the superstar and everybody else just kind of tagging along and him being the guy that takes you somewhere significant again there are moving away from that but in order to move away from that he cannot be around so if has taken this position insane we cannot have name are around anymore and then you have to be willing to give in and meet somebody else. Maybe even pass a midway point. Maybe your concessions have to be bigger than that of other teams that may be interested in Neymar because you're the interested Party and saying we don't want that anymore. That didn't work for us. We have to move in a different direction and if that's the case everybody everybody else negotiating knows that as well and they're gonNA wait for you to make that decision so P G. You can't have it both ways. You can't have well we don't want name are around but he's around and and if he's around then we're gonNA play. Franklin was pulling no punches yesterday. He has not been impressed at all with neymars behavior. You can check that out over on the website <unk> site and if you want to hear the show you can do so by downloading our day podcast which is also available on the web and now I find from geico motorcycle it took fifteen minutes to take a spirit animal quiz online. Please be the Cheetah the Cheetah Data and learn your animal isn't the Cheetah but the far less appealing blood fish come on glad insult to injury you could've used those fifteen blood fish minutes to switch your motorcycle insurance too Geico Geico fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more on motorcycle insurance big story today Leelanau messy suspended for three months. That's international matches only remember the comments that he made after being being eliminated from the Corporate America's saying that basically all the officials will Brazil's side fifty thousand dollars as well the fine a lot of talk talk amongst people as to whether or not this is the right amount of punishment. Maybe should be bound for longer shorter. He won't really Miss Anything friendly's that you very much he would have played in any way. Jason wouldn't play them anyway. So is this the right punishment. That's why it's a slap on the wrist. That's it choice. Look you cannot have the captain of your instead of me well. L. E. Hanging Jap me to death. You had to punish him but this is no more than a slap into should it be more then I think could have been more but how how do you quantify it and and how do you get after him and what really is punishment. If you go down the list of games that he could have missed may have missed. There's nothing really significant until next Copa America which by the way you would not have gone that far and so therefore this recent I guess about right I agree. There's nothing that anybody could have done here if you want to. If you want to set that standard I think it's about vote right but as as Ali says because of before the calendar is not going to be very effective or meaningful me law. It's not long now until the Premier League kicks off in England remember. It's a a Friday night saw Liverpool in action before then for your side. It's the community shield against Manchester City. Who will take this <music> will seriously shy to either? Will I think either team this overly seriously I think they set their targets for for for this. Season accomplished some of those last season as a result is just about fine-tuning these are going to be in my opinion top two clubs at the end of the season. I don't put tune to feature. They're all but more importantly just kind of dust off their own cobwebs getting ready for you. South this season. It's all very result dependent. Save you win and you spin it one way and if you lose the new spin it completely the opposite way and for both of those teams you'll say look yes if you lose well. We're fine tuning. We're getting ready for next week. That's what matters if if you win is what we've taken a step forward. This is what we're doing if we feel good about ourselves going into the season so to be quite honest result in Indian. I don't think it really matters for either one. It's it's not like you're sitting in a message. Liverpool Beats Mantas the city. They're saying well see now. We're here to challenge might just the city knows reported there to challenge anyways regardless of what happens in the community. I don't think it matters that much by tomorrow voice there. We'll be breaking down. Yes we will see showed from Wembley Manchester City against livable plus of course plenty of other things and talk about meanwhile Ali while you're away of course Esso's dolls losing against Athletico Madrid a lot of people tweeting about lots. I mean what did you I think the All Star game it's supposed to be an exhibition and Emily's approach it as as an exhibition in some choice but then if they go on the team that they're playing against then they use it to sort of get on the stage and say well see at Melissa's growing well you can evaluate evaluate this game for what it is when this players that get together for a day and a half if that train and then all of a sudden are supposed to be a group that looks like a team while it's never going <hes> happen plus their their coaches around the league that are going to make a phone call to whoever is coaching the All Star Game. I say hey my God can only play uh-huh yeah. Go only play ten thirty minute. He can't play he can do this. He can't do that well. How are you going to evaluate your players and base base that evaluation of your players and All Star game that in the end by definition? It's an exhibition welcome back. What was that I was a man Kinda? Thanks very much. We'll be back for more of this tomorrow until then goodbye Buckman texture time. Thank you very much via tweet.

Offside from the Upper West side of Manhattan and for gun Ling. JJ Danny on Champions League Wednesday. What's up, brother? How are you? Doing great right now water result. What a game. I was glad to have the distraction of Champions League football to take away from the hammer blow of losing Deccan rice from the Irish midfield. I know, but you started talking to me about that months ago. When you can't I know it sucks like American fans, experienced it with Jonathan Gonzales, but they didn't Declan Rice's of totally different calibre. And also he played three times for the senior team. Yeah. But like there has been a part of you that has felt this coming for a while short. This was not just like a sucker punch out of nowhere. No. And to bring it back to Spurs of Eric Dyer was better. Jordan Henderson was better than I will never worry about. This would be a natural roadblock for Decky and he would play for Ireland. So blame everyone else. It's everyone else's fault. I know how you operate indirectly and blaming you. What a show what a show. It's it's probably too much. Yeah. I know for considering the fact that there's only four matches really the discussing of those four were only really gonna talk about a couple well three I would say for the most part, but we've got the mail bag as well. We've got the red cards mount of the match the mail mailbag actually required thought. I know we were given a question that like questions. Yeah. I know three questions actually God. There's no end in sight to the number of questions that we thought about but we're going to start with the Champions League. You heard it there at the open of the podcast Huron ming-sun scoring the open opening goal for Spurs that put them up one nil. They added to more later on huge too huge goals later on to extend the. The victory margin to three goals three nil over Borussia Dortmund. Look, I don't have to sit here and say how big this is how important this is obviously this is a massive win for a Tottenham side that needed it. You know, we can I'll say this to me. It's not over yet. Bruce Dorfman going back home like there's they can win three nil. And then if it gets the extra time who knows, but that's not even really what I'm thinking about today, if you're taught them fan, this is you had to be so nervous going in because you know. Okay. Borussia Dortmund are missing a couple of key members of their back line and even when at full strength. It's a back line for Dortmund as we saw against verte Bremen as we saw over the weekend when they coughed up three nil lead, you know, even at full strength. It's a back line that has weaknesses that can be gotten to. But if you're Tottenham you kept thinking, that's great. But we don't have Cain. We don't have deli alley. Are we going or we're going to be able to pick through them? Or are. We just not going to be on our own heels all game long fending off. Attempt after attempt after ten from Russia Dorman and the first half was like that Tottenham were fending off Dortmund Pulitzer in the first fifteen minutes. I thought was excellent drew the quick yellowcard on surgery a force one fourth into an awful giveaway and pure six finishing was maybe a little better from what was tough angle, it might have been one. No Bruce Dortmund early on. And that could have changed everything. But it was Jaden Sancho on the right hand side, attacking Totten's that gave you the most amount of worry. Yeah. And I think anybody who watched Belgium versus Japan in the World Cup and solver tongue in a wide defensive position. Now, I know he was playing as a wingback for Spurs in this game. But you had out of Arale on that side, and you advertizing, and you had Sancho gonna both of them on what was happening in the first half was clearly this was not just a defensive tactic clearly potch wanted for tongue to get off the field. And what was happening? He was doing that. But he wasn't getting back and you had Sancho cruising through the center causing all sorts of. Problems on looking not to get a free kick in a very dangerous position when he was fouled by soco, mice Assocham in was a clear phone, and it caused all sorts of problems, and you thought well the first tweak that will happen in the second half will be that potch will rethink they idea of Vertongen as a wingback or as a wide player in both the attacking and defensive sense. But he didn't really do that. I'm what happened was you saw the Spurs midfield. Get more of a grip and begin to kind of shut down Delaney shutdown Vissel make it tougher them to play the ball and get the ball through to to Sancho, impugn a sake. And then all of a sudden, you silver tongue in with lots of time on the left hand side are maybe not lots of time, but certainly getting into positions, and he was quite devastating both from an assist on a goal scoring point himself in terms of his assist. I I mean, I've loved him for a long time. He's a great player. That's an element of his game. That I didn't know he was really capable of. Don't really see that. It's worth noting that came from aggressive pressing from Spurs. You know, they they grouped up. They didn't allow Dortmund to come out in that instance. And they force the turnover on a wonderful ball swung in which phones. Sun in the center who I mean, it was a brilliant finish really brilliant finish. But I'm going to pray spot Schettino for sticking with that sticking with what he intended from the first minute and not wavering based on what Sancho did in the first half. And I'm going to give the praise to me because we call this on the last podcast. I told you in the what to watch for that for some reason. Bush Dortmund were inviting crosses into the box and not defending them. They were okay. With allowing you to have the ball in white areas. This is from Steph and boats, go of ESPN NFC who's been a regular on this podcast the last. Seven goals. Dortmund conceited were from crosses and set pieces. It might even be more worrying considering UCF fibers generally wants opponents to revert to cross because in theory. It's unlikely to concede from across are less likely to conceive from across only problem is this. This theory is currently not working out from because you do have to defend the cross all three of Tottenham goals today were on cross one of which from corner kick. Right. The last one for your rent, which let's look at while Paci Tinos done there to get players into white positions who put in the cross for the I Don for the tangle of Tongans goal. I don't remember. Now. I'd have to look it up. Okay. Well, it doesn't matter. But the point being that the cross is coming from left and right now, I thought Arman kind of backed off into the bit in the second half. Look to sit deeper didn't really work for them. But Spurs were excellent. While Paci no talks about the changes from the first half of the second half. And he's not specific. But he says. In the dressing room at halftime. They pulled out a a an impromptu video session. Yeah. And they went back and reshow did the team. Basically what reminding them what their game plan was originally intended to be before this started. And they came out in the second half. They scored within minutes. Right. And they, you know for they I'd say they were fortunate to have gotten to half time with it being nil nil. I thought Dortmund were the better side through the first four minutes to save from Laurie. Some I'm trying to go through the save. Now, the Pulitzer chance tight angle good save with the knees Beyeler east. And there was that the header which didn't have enough pace on it was half block force to make a good say forced to make a good save. They had that slaloming run where I can't. I was it's a socal our oria. Can't remember who was tied up in knots by Sancho a doorman dominated the first half. But I never. They had a COPA chances. But no, no, it wasn't wasn't an unreasonable. Halftime score. No, no, you're right. And in fairness to Tottenham they had their chances to Lucas more early on had a volley the kind of whizzed by the far post. But if you want to say Dorman could easily have been one open half to probably the better team on the balance of play. And so for Tottenham to make whatever the adjustments were that they made whether that be for tongue and playing more of a role in the attack is usually that's Danny road. Hang on. I don't think that changed. The point was they were getting the ball up to him in the second half. And I think they were pressing a little bit more in key areas to get turnovers to win possession and then get the ball at the box. Well, whatever the changes were they worked for Tottenham and they put three past Dortmund in the second half. And they do it without Cain without daily. Both of whom they may have back for the return leg to Germany. I mean, this was this was kind of the dream scenario for them and to have been able to do it to been able to have attacked like that. Without there to argue with her two best attacking player. Well, you know, what I can't say that anymore because son is as good, right? He certainly past deli alley and even Kane I saw stat today that son has scored more goals against Borussia Dortmund than any other club, which is odd because he hasn't played in the same league as them for years, but he did come from Germany. I think he's got nine goals against them. Now in twelve matches against them to be honest with you, I would put his record against Dortmund aside and say right now, I would fear him. If I was any opposition. He is he's he's wonderful declaring them he has. And it's the the amazing thing is he's been playing so well, and yet you don't hear the coin to rumors about him quite being transferred that you would hear about other players, which is so curious to me and a wonder a wonder why that might be. Be. It can't be an attitude thing it campy a skill thing. You know, the was in the past of you of players from from Asian countries that was a view. Well, you know, they're they're technically good. But they're they're not rule Boston. There was a lot of kind of mischaracterization 's you can't play any of them to. No, no. And I would have thought some of those characterizations would have gone out the window. You know, we've seen other players come over from Asia and succeed in you know, Ji-Sung park for United. We've we've seen it like, but I can't expand. Then why he's not more. We'll ton them. Remember him in Patino son with they were not on the same page, and it seemed like he had fallen out of favor and not this past summer, but the summer before and it seemed like Tottenham were maybe thinking about selling him. But then he kind of fell in line with what Pocchettino wanted and his career has been totally rejuvenated. Maybe the fact that you know. Now, he's forced his way into the the first eleven like there's no chance that he's not starting for Tottenham matter who's healthier who's heard. It doesn't matter you play him at all costs. But that wasn't always the case. He was you know, in some there were times when he was a super sub. He got who who would come in when Cain was hurt. Maybe maybe maybe it took a while for people to kind of get over the perception of him not being a you know, a regular starting player. I think if you're looking to poach anyone from Spurs right now at in in this moment, he be probably topped the list, maybe, but you're right. You don't hear much about it, and that can all change very quickly. But by the way, I'm referring to when I was growing up they the the view of Asian players by by I suppose, the proper football. And then in Ingram was like, oh, they're technically good. But you know, they're not they're not that strong. They're not that physical. Are they capable of playing in the English? I mean, yes is the answer. The thing for Tottenham like we said they score three without their full attack. But it's the. Fact that they held Dortmund two zero that clean sheet is so vital for Spurs. When I saw the team sheet, and I saw names like oria who's played a lot in Europe. But still just makes me nervous. I can't help it when he's out there. It's just I don't feel the same sense of calm. Not that trippy has been amazing by any stretch of the imagination. But Orioles has these moments you feel like he's due for to concede. A penalty is due for a bad giveaway. Then I see one fourth back there who you know. He had how many he was good. He emerged. But like how many weeks in a row was he conceding penalties or near penalties. You know? And as good as Evanston Sanchez Sanchez has been as a young player. He's had moments to where you were. He reminds you that he's still a very young player. I thought those guys with the exception of fourth and that giveaway by I thought those guys came to play. I thought they were good especially in the second half. When they didn't really have to do quite as much although Dortmund were pushing on for the equality, but I think as much as the three goals the fact that Dortmund leaves Wembley without any away goals. Into the second leg. I it's I got to applaud Tottenham defending because that was not something that I think I would have anticipated coming in Hakeem Ian data on on the second and third goals defensively. Just how you can't be a professional footballer and be that out of position in academies case wrong site of her tongue and on the gold and Diablo macking literally almost touching. Well, not almost was twitching your into how did he end up? You've got to be goal site. It's like the first thing you learn. It was absolute schoolboy stuff. Yeah. So props the Spurs? What do you think? Do you think they is this enough is three nil heading back to Germany enough? I think it's enough. I mean, I would never discount the if you talking about special nights at Anfield special nights at Old Trafford in your you can apply that to Dortmund as well. And and they will be there will be a rallying cry and they will be fairly pump. But I think three nil should be an, AVI. So curie. This how Tottenham decide to play it like will that be one where they just go out there and play whatever their game plan was heading into today. Do they just go with that again? Or does everything changed as it become just more of a let's pack it in. I honestly I can't see Spurs plan like that. But they have done that when they play, you know, I'd have to think when they've done it in the past. Did they did they do that at a little bit away insure in last season? No, I don't think. So I'd have to go back and think about I'm trying to remember matches against city if you're saying like more of like a counter attacking style, which we've seen them do that, this Hyun assay pack, the midfield. And and when you win the ball clean this spring from deep with counterattacking football with with your with your pace, pacey players, more and sawn. Yes. But I I don't know kinda foreshadowing a topic that we're going to get into when we get to the Manchester. United PS g match kind of mentioned that same topic here. Tottenham right now on the fringes of title chase in England. Meanwhile. Russia Dorfman looked to be the class of Germany so far the wobble in recent games. Yeah. Knocked out the German Cup. But so far this season. They've been the best team in Germany. Do we should that be read into the Tottenham can beat the best team in Germany, three nil? Does that say anything about the boondocks league or the Premier Li you don't think so? Okay. I really don't. Okay. Well, then that should be your answer later on when we talk about another team. Okay. I will say you can't be trusted. We go from Wembley to answer damn JJ where row Madrid get by. Thanks to Marco Asensio. And this winter severe his cop case is one of the class. The go-to sex kicks grouchy with just over three minutes to those of the pool. The bill. Yeah. I XE dominated dot game. I mean. If you look at from from the angle, you want to look at they were they were really rather good and via joined the parody much to the chagrin of I exam Saddam, by the way, the investigation into virus? When people noted that we haven't used the Amsterdam police drop in a longtime, and they won't they wanted you to do it. Well, thanks for telling me. Sorry. I forgot where would I even begin to look for that? I'm stood on police. All right. Well, you talk for a little bit. All right. So it was interesting because there is this muscle memory that we attach to Real Madrid where they can be dominated in the Champions League game or not play particularly. Well, and yet there is only one person who is going gonna come out on the side of this and it's Real Madrid. It's it's incredible. Now. Disclaimer Muslim memory has been honed under the Dan over the last few seasons in on your watch them. And you're just not that impressed like away at Munich last season. And yet they will come out on the right side of the drawl on that seemed to be another one of those games. Although I will say right at the end Dahlberg chance. He had a real chance to keep X firmly in the tie. And I don't know he he fluffed his lines. Really? I don't know what happened. But he fed over rather than get contact on the bolt. What did you make of the VAR decision? Because I I don't know how that might have changed things. But God what a huge moment would have been for. I asked to have gotten. Honestly, I didn't see the game. I've only seen some replays of of the virus in. I have I've noticed on at one way or the other. I thought the gold was legitimate. That was my instinct to now I watched it a couple of times. And I thought the goal was the general the Real Madrid crew. I just biased against anon-. No saying that. I've all you have no idea Twitter's just saw knowing particularly I have a few access to growing with people. Oh, really? Yeah. Nothing about how you shelter me from things get involved in conversations, we listened to the podcast, and then tell me that Maya. Opinion is because I'm either Liverpool finer your opinion is because you're it. It has nothing to do with enough for me at has everything to do with. All right. Yeah. The look the VAR decision these these matches only kind of just ended. So you're right. I haven't had a chance to really read much about it for me when I saw it. I thought it was I thought it was a goal. But they I guess the VAR crew determined that do some Todd was judged to be offside. I don't know. I I would have to look at it again when I initially was looking at it. I thought that they were saying there might have been some interference for with Courtois because he kind of battered into somebody for X. I couldn't even tell who it was. Well, listen, I find this stuff hugely tedious. I'm not gonna lie. Yeah. So if you want you can toddle over to a to either ROY Smith or GATT Marcotte Twitter away, a ROY says if that's interference. Maybe if that's being ruled out for offside. An example of the mission creep that'll make vire nonsense and further evidence that the offside rule as it is. Currently employed is insane. Which is my view a guide Marcatti it's both he's off site, but he doesn't touch the ball. So the only question is whether he's interfering and the ref felty was in fact brackets, and this is what we'll find out slash if we get VAR slash ref. Odio Betty saw interference pluses only question was whether he was off site. It's one of the most difficult calls to make in this sport the player who is off side, but not a part of the play and the referee then has to determine if in some way, he is interfered with the goalkeeper or gotten in his line of sight or anything like that. I I really think that that's about as difficult to call as there is in soccer, Rory. Are we talking touted being off from Taghi Fico's header question, Mark because that is not a clear and obvious offside, and I'd say genuine he shouldn't be off site at all there's a cigarette. Paper in it. The offsite is relevant to what happened gab Rory. Are you making the philosophical argument against off site, which Rory is making constantly and I agree with him. I think you know that clear and obvious does not apply objective decisions like offsite. But he if he's off by millimeter, he's off we can agree or disagree with the vire regulations. But that's what they are. God is right. He's right. I'm bored even reading I think we need to review what what off-site is never mind via for second. But the whole idea of site needs to be dealt with where did the daylight rule? So they get wiped away daylight worked for me. Now, we're talking about pirates of body parts and chest. Well that probably all change when instant replay became a thing like in the nineteen fifties. And sixties, you know, it was like that stuff didn't matter. But now, you can you know, with HD cameras like you can see like if a guy is off by a blade of grass like ultimately that rule was instituted. So you could avoid guys cherry picking. That's what that's exactly what timing was fun. It's that's not what it is. What? No. It's the rule book to be rewritten. It's become this monster. Yeah. This crazy thing that's impossible to to referee, even when we have videos. You're right. We don't know. It's it's extremely difficult. Not to take away from the fact though that Real Madrid do wind up winning this game. And how big that is for them. Would their surge that they're making right now in the league? And they kinda now continue that momentum into Europe. I know I I look at them. And I still like even if they're not clicking on all cylinders, even if I XE might have been the better team. You're right. They always seem to find a way especially in the Champions League that they've now kind of made like their this is their thing when you had the the kind of success that they've had over the past few seasons. It's almost hard not to still look at them as favorites. Did someone asked me today? The are they still in the bunch of favorites? Yeah. They are because who has really distanced themselves from the rest of the pack. I've all season long. I've wanted to say Barcelona, but the way they've been sputtering domestically. We'll have to wait and see if that carries over into their European form knows it may not but like Real Madrid had every bit the chance that whoever you want to say is your clear favor right now Real Madrid right there with whoever that team is in my mind their ability to just grind these results out in a Cup. Competition is huge. They haven't lot. So far. They have not lost out on your salary on what a good few days. It's been for them in terms of what they did against medical a no, no a very tricky away tie with with I exempted. I'm you. Couldn't find the police. No. I couldn't believe a I'm sorry. I should've teed it up earlier. Yeah. You have you can look in the mirror by name, by the way, the police didn't do much about the techno music and the fireworks. That were. Oh, you mean this? What was happening outside of Real Madrid's team hotel at three in the morning in Amsterdam. What about the people who live in answer, Dan who just happened to live near that hotel? How do you like are they conflicted here? I'm sure there. I expands so, yeah, they're probably like enjoying the sentiment of this. But they also want to sleep presumably they're all getting up for work. You've never been to. I'm stood. I'm of you. Oh know what work? I wouldn't assume that everyone's getting them for work. That's all shinning city JJ is a function in city, and it functions on on certain certain chemicals, helping you know, America runs on Dunkin. It was a Wednesday. Again. This is dumb nine ever have been rules are different there. I like it was a full on your show lie was trying to sleep. When all of a sudden, I heard the firecrackers, but I was okay with it. Because of course, they were going after the Real Madrid fence who we don't like are the Real Madrid team who don't like Steve McClaren. Yeah. I'm Steve McClaren Amsterdam. It was okay. I had my hash pipe. Yeah. That was an incredible scene. If if you haven't had the chance go online and just Google like round Madrid hotel and see this display going on outside from the I X fan base. Everyone is like amazed by it. But there's so many fan bases in Turkey. Who are like, I'm sure I'm sure yes. Surround the drill two one victors over. I XE earlier today, we're gonna take a very quick break. When we come back on the other side, we're going to look at Tuesday's results. Manchester United and PS g also Roma and Porto. We've got to watch. Also, we have the new Seoul Shire, watch JJ. I'm very excited. I so pumped I have not heard it. Good. Well, it's going to be great stuff. Don't go anywhere. Let's consider the secret life of the innermost nesting doll living most of her life in the duck inside the other nesting Dole's. She has plenty of time to think if we could Saturday, she has no brain, however, when in the most nesting dole, his gyco, not only saves people money, but also has been providing great service over seventy. Five years. She thinks it's obvious. You should switch because. Yes. Switching to gyco is a no brainer. Piteously ina. Most nesting Dollond her lot in life. Oh, they that. It rugs. In the back cave kit. Pepe. Lovely play here. But. Three Maria pie. Club. Superb a word that could probably be used describe PSD's entire performance throughout the night. Specifically in the second half to nil is the final they smack Manchester. United back down to earth, the era of good feelings is no more J. Oh, the honeymoon's over. Although let's be fair. They look this shouldn't be a major blot on the copybook of Oleg or sold share. They encountered a team that you know, beating Fulham a Craven Cottage, you know, ev- even even playing Spurs who they know very well. Nothing prepares you for for the way PS gee, played on some of the skills available to some of their players variety. Baba martinez. This is a tactical masterclass on and off the field from stop Thomas to chill and Bs g they were excellent. They looks put simply Man United haven't come across opposition like this sense, Oregon or socio took charge now they really haven't. And so many people were so wrong about PS g heading into this match from a couple of different perspectives from the one perspective of no one really knows. How good they are or aren't because all we have to really judge them off of is what they do in late on. And they could go unbeaten for an entire season and beat everyone seven nil. And we still wouldn't know what that means. And the other reason we can't judge them as okay? So that's what they that's how we feel about them in league us. So we can judge them and what they do in European competition. But even that has been tricky because last year they lost name neymar for. An important match of significance in when put when push comes to shove in the big games. They haven't had Namur both. Also, another thing that happens is we have taken aboard. And I will say I will admit it. And I'm sure you will too. We look at league on on. We think we don't first of all we don't watch it regularly enough. That's just a fast for yourself a dip into note. They're responsible to we accept that. Good players quality players a quality manager. Simply can't opposite gear when it comes to your because they're playing against inferior opposition. That might be true. In some cases, we've often said about bear Munich when they were romping deboned us they and then they come up against someone in the Champions League. And fall quite considerable distance short. I wonder is not always the case we should challenge that view last night because that was a brilliant performance. Well, the thing that's unfortunate. I texted you during this game that you know, when the Champions League kind of goes away like it goes on its break between the group stage or the knockout stage or even during the Champions League. When PS G is playing an opponent that were not necessarily as interested in. We know they're going to win green comp. Like, we forget like we know how great name are is because we've seen so much of an we see so much with Brazil, and when he's Barcelona, but Imbaba like we're still kind of just getting to know him like we got to know him, obviously with Monaco, and we saw what he did for France this summer at the World Cup, but even on PS G sometimes he gets lost in the whole Cavani. Neymar like, they have so many good players up front that sometimes your mind like may skip over and bought they so now with just having been him with neymar out with Cavani out and Imbaba is the centerpiece. Like, it's a shame that we almost forget sometimes how unbelievable this guy is. And how out of this world he projects today would say that you may forget Manchester both sides does not forget, remember the performance. He put in the Eddie hod two seasons ago where he just ripped through them. Absolutely rip through them for monocle. Yeah. I know Manchester, the red site has seen what he can do his pace is absolutely frightening, and obviously he's got incredible technique. So you're adding quick feet and this incredible technique to that blistering pace how he ghosted between the two defenders. No now, it's interesting because you said fought on him bap, a, and then you just you wrote about I don't know if you really meant unnecessary nary as but I wanna take you open that did did IMB. His performance kind of cast a light on neymar at PS g and questioned whether they even need him he surplus to requirements I think it's reasonable to have seen if they have every intention of keeping embody for the long haul like if he's not gonna get wooed away by Real Madrid or Barcelona or somebody like that like if he's going to be a PS g player moving forward. Then why is name like you don't need neymar? There are other areas on PS g the probably need more addressing than that position. As long as embody. And let's say even Cavani are gonna be playing for that team. I mean, they spent what a quarter of a billion dollars on name are like that's necessary. When you have this guy on when you have this coach who's got this team, tactically working to certain plant. I just say this having a focused angry Anghel de Maria on an Imbaba in that cling to form I'm are Kenya. Less able to shut down that United midfield on a variety. Able to do the same was far more important name are would not have. I've brought that much to the part. In fact, can I put a hypothetical though for you dot bowl when it's played through two d Maria for the second goal. Dot centre dot cross. He puts in as good as the ruined by Bob. A was it was brilliant. It's still a brilliant bowl. Yes. Can I ask you a question? What percentage if that bowl is going to neymar instead of de Maria? What percentage chance is it that gets ends open the box at mbappe his feet or that name are takes an extra touched either. Go inside our do something himself. What would you say? I'd say it's fifty fifty at best. You're probably right. You're right. Feels a little note unfair to Nome as maybe he scores in some other way that guys aren't Caitlyn. Dighton of the fact that he's let's not. So they'll say, he's not good. Look that's not what I'm saying. But in a way performance like like last night, where the was a rigid tactical plan that needed to be adhered to to stop Manchester. United's most creative player in Paula pag when they needed to do certain things, I feel that a team without neymar is more likely to stick to that plan. Now, look what he did to Liverpool away from home. So that he's he's brilliant. There's one of the best players in the what I thought they I thought they didn't miss him last night at all. And I think that for for to chill to be able to come in and set that midfield like it was Harir manage impact, but that's still a very good midfield arson Vangere at halftime saw the way this game was going if you thought that it was a fairly even first half. And you you were okay to say that Vangere soul of this game was going to go what body size on my did is they look polka. Kenya's in man-to-man marking. And when price my head the ball Doxa came in behind poobah. And that's where the chances were created behind the metering of Manchester United and in fairness with a bit more patience. Like, you said Piscine had good opportunities. But we're not patient enough to give the finder bowl and the bit more attention not to be offside Visger between up they might regret that. Because I think McCain see a different Man United in the second half. We didn't know now I will say that losing lingered and Marcial was huge because you're replacing them with Sanchez a motto who don't have the pace to trouble in behind and so can Penn bay and the other fullback were able to get forward and not worry about what was going in behind them. That was a big big change in the game. Put even you think about it after pogs biscuits by compound in the first half. It's pretty much as good a chance as United carved out after that. I I honestly tall PSG were very comfortable. I thought so too United had one chance on target and correct me if I'm wrong was at the Marcus rash. One early on from like an insane angle where I will still not even sure if he was shooting or passing I think that was the one that was carving in and boof on just passionate running the polls just to be safe via. That's not a chance. Now, I didn't think so either. I mean, this was this was even though the first half of it was a little bit more fifty fifty. I thought him Bob as chance in the first half that he put wide hit the side-netting on Conroy like vendor said getting in behind the defence. You know? I thought that was a better chance PS g every they were every bit as good as that to nil scoreline suggests and they were probably even better than that. Mark Ogden agrees with you on this. He said, but for the saves of Deva, hey, you know, would have lost by a heavier margin. But this was still there are you ready for this? This is still their heaviest European defeat at Old Trafford prior to this United and not being beaten by more than one goal. Home in over sixty saw that night. I could not believe it. I couldn't believe that either. I guess it just speaks to how great they are in that Bill on these nights. Yeah. Looking at it. I guess from the the Manchester United side of things we'll talk about social in a sec. But before we do that you mentioned Alexis Sanchez before we could probably one day if we wanted to just do an entire segment on him. Yeah. And what has what has happened here that has caused this guy in such a short amount of time to have gone from what he was at arsenal. To now what he's been reduced to at Manchester United where he is just a complete non factor. A he strikes fear into no-one when he comes on the pitch now for United. He's lost pace. He's lost form. I remember two seasons ago. Mean you talking about him at arsenal and worrying about the constant almost dizzying schedule of football. He had to play around the world be tournaments. He. Rarely had summers off not many breaks. So I I made this point on Twitter that we constantly referenced this someone's that we had this summer off like our because he wasn't as World Cup. Okay. Right. But that was the summer re crossed the threshold of thirty. Maybe it's too late. I don't know. It's been such a sharp drop. There's a lot of arsenal fans will tell you. He was on the wane at arsenal. And they put it down to him him wanting to leave. Yeah. But maybe it was more than that. Maybe there's a physical issue going on here. Maybe a mental one. You could be right. The other things that stood out to me for United. I think one of the signs where you can really tell that PS g were not only bossing the game. But were I think really getting under the skin of United obviously PA picking up the second yellow card on? I thought a challenge that was deserving of a second yellow card. I don't think there's really much that he could argue about that I feel for him because he's going back to his hometown of Paris for the second leg and won't be able to take part in a match where his team will desperately need him. And. Then actually young like he's just one of those guys. Where look I I suppose if you're a United fan you've like having a guy like him that maybe he's an irritant. But like you're on a yellow card already. And now you're gonna shove and healthy Maria in into the stands basically in just kind of a selfish act. Like, what are you trying to prove in that moment, you're trying to let the Marino. Look, I'm here. You're not gonna you know. Well, yes, he's trying to do. But maybe don't do that. When you're already on a yellow forget, he is a targeted mine. He is the elder statesmen on that United defense don't that site on PSE, we're beginning to probe and focused on that site. Andrew, he if you're United fine. You look at actually young you see the new contractor the extension of the contract that that he's been given that he signed. And you think this shows us that we as good as the results have been under Otago's soldier this shows where the club is at and what we have to fix. He's thirty three thirty four year old converted winger playing fullback in. Champions league. They're still limited side. And there is as good as it's been. You're right. There's a ceiling to what they're going to be able to achieve all that money. That's being spent I think. Yeah. And look, I don't know is this over. I mean us all the numbers tell you that it like I said there without PA. And also this none of the previous thirty four teams to lose the first leg of a Champions League knockout match at home by two or more goals have gone on to progress to the next round that's from op too. So the history is clearly against them. It's twenty ten twenty eleven since Manchester. United worn nocco game in the Champions League. Is that right? Some of those seasons are capable it's quite misleading because the culprit of the more spent in the Europa league. But but that's telling you something to oh, sorry, one spent in the Europa league in moma's. They didn't qualify. So JJ ready for social watch that we can talk about Janice. Do. Okay, here you go. I feel like there's a budget directions. I can take this. So scare watch so sky. Oh, watch Solska gera- watch. On coincide. I gave the strip to a bunch of people around the office and gave them no help what the pronunciation was his name. Good law. That was what Salzgitter? I gave them absolutely no help whatsoever. You know, the guy Rodney who did our Tyrian Reeve of whom yet. I was going to ask him to do this one again. But my only instruction was just just read it as his please don't look anything up. He wouldn't do it. So he he comes back in and he's like gleeful in telling me all I looked it up. I know how to say it's on ready now, I said, did you even hear any of the words that I said when we talked about this like my only instruction was that. I don't want you to look it up. Didn't care. No respect did not want to be made a fool of on the air. And then he's like, oh, I'll fake it though. Because I can tell you how I would have said I said, no it's ruined. Now, you're out you're out. So there you have it. Rodney soul shar obviously coming into this match have been flying so high. I think it would be a little bit unfair for everyone to suddenly change their opinions based on like, we just said a limited Manchester United side losing to a PS g side that even without Cavani and neymar is still excellent. So I'm not gonna let this reshape my opinion. Like, I said, though, I haven't I'm still very much undecided on anything about him in terms of being named permanent manager let this all play out. No one has to make any decisions yet. Yeah. He's got Chelsea Komen and the FA Cup, and then he has Liverpool. Surely, they should be just as equal in consideration. As a PSE at home one other stat that I wanna give you before we move onto the final Champions League match. Excluding qualifiers gee-gee profound became the third keeper to achieve fifty clean sheets in the Champions League. How about that? Now. Obviously the sets up beautifully into a trivia question. Can you name the other two fifty clean sheets in the Champions League? Yeah. Eaker cassia Stephanie present because he's been there that long. Yeah. If you want I'll give you a big hint go on he's he's retired now, but his club or one of the clubs that he's known for were playing in this match. Pierce, Michael know, Edwin van der saw okay, there, you have it actually you gotta think of him when you think across United. I ex event is. Yeah. Yeah. So there you go United had back to PSE second leg down to nil last, but not least JJ Roma and Porto to one for as Roma. They were up to nil but Porto did get a potentially crucial away goal to give themselves some real hope heading into the second leg, I suppose. This is kind of the world's introduction to Nikoloz Neil yet who was packed of the deal to send ninety one to enter which feels like one of those Jaden Sancho deals where white are you giving up this kid, but I will say this. It was a poor. I touch on his first goal that actually set him up to scored because it kind of through defender off good finish in second. One was a tap in after Jacko hit the post. So look his life is changed forever. Because you know, what it's like an Italy. He scored two goals two crucial goals in the Champions League. Whether he's all that and a bag of chips. We don't know yet boil this is considered to be his breakout seasons. Zanny allows only nineteen years old. He's a teenage right, obviously. So this is a big big moment for. Yeah. Yeah. I don't mean to criticize his two goals on December. No, I'm just. I'm just you know, what I mean? But that Portugal really keeps it alive. They will be absolutely livid the Roma fans that that went in. So they're nervous or saying. Yeah. Probably I mean, it's it's not ways the link you're going away for the next leg not crazy to think poor token, west season, Roma haven't exactly been pulling pulling up trees and Syria disease. No, we've talked about how much of a roller coaster. It's been like we said just a couple of weeks ago. They lost seven one. But then they won three no over the weekend. Now, they went to one mid week. So maybe you know, we can we can wind on their behalf about giving up that away goal, but it is still win in the Champions League against the good opponent. So that's our look at the Champions League. JJ we move from that to what to watch for for the rope league the round of thirty two first leg Thursday, twelve fifty five but day Borisov and arsenal. I'm just gonna enjoy that for a second Thursday at three. Mamo and Chelsea which suddenly feels like a big game. Yeah. Iraq, not kidding though. Yeah. It is like every one of these games. Now feels like if it goes poorly. It could be the end from her te'o. Sorry on kids momma were in a European Cup. Final once against Nottingham Forest. Brian Clough's Nottingham Forest. Well, undermanaged by former Manchester City grid who Rossler the German who kept them up in the days when they used to go down and scored a lot of goals for city important goals. And then Thursday at three o'clock a match of that will be fantastic and of tremendous character. Celtic in Valencia will live a beautiful team in the possible wonderfully and fantastic plays for cooler today to make his comeback. Celtic like. I don't know. I like seeing them in European competition. I'm glad that they're still something about like, I don't know there's like romantic they are they were the first British team to claim the European Champions League or European culpas. It was then in nineteen sixty seven and they're synonymous with with it ever since also big nights and Lasco where we hear Scottish lungs. Yeah. Exactly. FA Cup fifth round Saturday, twelve thirty Newport county and Manchester City look out we told you that Newport county have been what is it been in their last five matches against clubs from a higher tier of English football at home for wins one draw that pitches a disaster Jonathan Smith took pictures Jonathan Smith of ESPN FC who just had on yet. He was he was at at the ground at Newport ground until pictures of the absolute look it's called Rodney parade on he took. Well, he says it's flat. But it's muddy on those ran promised ho. Yeah. This is. Is. I mean, the the moaning pep will do about this earth. If you are pep. How do you like they wanna win the FA Cup? Obviously, it's not their number one priority the league and the champions their squad has been off. They don't have to like too much about rotation. He's gotta sit guys in this game. Right. Key players need to be sat down particularly those with hamstring problems and groin is who have been fighting injuries. Most because that's going to get heavy. Yeah. Let's see Sunday eleven am dunk caster and Crystal Palace Palestine alive in this turnament on the road though at Doncaster. No, you seem to have stories about a lot of these Donna much to say about Doncaster to be honest with you and then Monday to thirty Chelsea and Manchester United if sorry is still there. This is obviously a hugely important match for him really set. Abramovich hasn't spoken to him. So now the silent treatment, though, sometimes unnerving and it suddenly becomes an important match. For social Manchester United as well coming off of his first defeat against PS g if he falls that up with a defeat against Chelsea who have been really wobbly and who United have passed in the league, then we know how fickle fans can be suddenly the tune set. You know, what soul shar this has been fun? But yeah, he's not scoring us forward. It's. Oh, yeah. Fans aren't like that. No, man. United fans will have quiet reservations about him getting the job. But there won't be any clean of like all of a backlash at at Old Trafford. They won't be like not enough for him. Can I I this was sent to me earlier today are from Berenson friend of mine, and yours he remember who came here. And while say are was USA Argentina, very nice guy. But I feel he's no no he's going in about direct. It's well, you can be the judge of that. So Anthony Marcel and Cristiano Renaldo it's a comparison because they've now both played or this is Marcie. I'll just played his hundred and four. Match for United right? This is a comparison of Marcial after one hundred and four matches and Rinaldo who after he had played one hundred and four matches for United. Let's see goals who would you guess scored more goals in there? I don't care. Tell me tell me tell me more see all thirty two goals. Rinaldo only twenty two assists Marcial, sixteen assists, Rinaldo, fourteen assists. Let's see minutes per goal or assist every hundred and forty five more y'all everyone ninety six for Rinaldo. Yeah. I don't know. We're not Rinaldo played as a winger in. But he's but he was such a goal score. And the maker by the end he was by the end he was but not early on. So he was an out and a winger he would take people on and deliver into the box. Although sometimes he didn't deliver quickly enough much to the chagrin of Reuven Nesta say early on. But like one hundred and four matches is that's like the last third of that is that still early on players tenure. With a club. How many how many games overall than all of us? But I looked at that. And I was like, wow, Marciel has ten more goals than Rinaldo through a hundred and four matches with the United. That's surprising to me. But you know, I forgot who I was dealing with here. You have an answer for everything. I'm saying, I'm I'm defending Renaldo in terms of where he started out for United. He started out white in a white position. All right, Dan. I thought it was a great text message you, and I we shared in mutual of it. But JJ is smarter. He's six years at United. He left in two thousand nine. No, I'm not I'm not that shocked by that. Don't forget how many games in a league season. Yeah. I I'm aware. Right. So he had his first season or he was a teenager when he came into the team. No. That's what was Marcial. Yeah. But Marcie out today nature when he came into the more of an advanced striking forward position plays out. One biz more forward than off whatever. I don't care does the spring this on me. How dare you? So that's what this is about. It's not about the knows. It's the fact I haven't you haven't hounded digested. Yeah. And think about it properly. But from from my vantage point here, I think it's a positional thing as much as anything. You have a mailbag. Do you not I do-, although you just be seem to be introducing random male willy nilly. Osceola soccer pot on Twitter caught off size ESPN on the Instagram machine. Coughs ipod gmaiLcom, Tim Coppell, not Ted Koppel disappointing. Hey, Andrew JJ. I wanted to say that I love your podcast. Thank you, Ted. I just finished my fifth season as the assistant coach at Missouri Baptist university. And it was quite a drive to our school your podcasts each week make that drive much more enjoyable keep up the good work question from the teams outside the top six and the prime who would be in each of your combined. Eleven's? Do you think that the team that you come up with would crack the top six? I'll give you mine. I I've gone with a three four one two formation. Oh god. Foresee did really Patricio and goal of Wolverhampton Wanderers Lascelles Newcastle. United Duffy of Brighton and Hove Albion. Maguire of the LeicesteR city's three hundred hives why Dr D a wolves rice of West Ham United treachery indeedy in midfield alongside him. And then we'll resign hassle. I had playing zag kind of as a wingback which is a dangerous game. He done that. No. But he's a white player. I did this in ten minutes at work. Okay. Brooks sitting in behind dare you of format sitting in behind Mitch on him in. And that is my team. I would just like to tell him Coppell that this is probably the most thought Ted cop ever put into Ted a mail bag question. I went with the more conventional four three three in net. I have casper Schmeichal feel good about that. In defense. My center has our Harry Maguire and James Tarkovsky and not want to have met Darty and Patrick van Arnhold my midfield. I also have David Brooks. Then I have Ruben Nevis and Philippa Anderson. I had a really hard time leaving off James, Madison and upfront. I have Callum Wilson whom I love Wilfried Zaha, and I'm sticking with old faithful Jamie Vardi, I can't believe also I don't have Charleston in the side. I really it's it says a lot about Everton tells you out of him. But it does say a lot about Everton that like, they're usually everyone's seven the reason the thing and like there's neither you and I had anyone from NY Janu. Anyone through their players. And I thought oh, I gotta say I like my team a lot even Pickford is not doing that. Great. I would out rod with this team. I like my team, but I'm asking indeed to do a lot of covering Ziya. Under don't think he's going to leave. My team could be in the top six that attacking line of Wilson Zahn Vardi come on. I think my team could to your team's joke. What do you have next? Not actually Robert Cordova. I remember when Andrew started using the model my American brain in a lot of football related norms. And now it's on your Twitter bio, so I want to use this opportunity to ask Andrew this question at the end of football matches. You will notice players and coaches going to their fans and doing an arms clapping over the head gesture for common in the English leagues. That's something. You don't see in the American League's when players just leave the court or field as soon as the game is over. So if Andrew could transfer this tradition to one of the NBA MLB our NFL, which one would you pick? And why and I think the general question. Is here. What would you transfer from American soccer kind of little cultural things from sorry from soccer to other American sports, like what what soccer traditions? I make. Okay. Well, here's one it's kind of Macab and dark. But that's where I go. I live up you know, what I really like in the Premier League when I see this. So like over here in the states if somebody passes away, and they wanna honor that person it's a it's a moment of silence. Yeah. I I sometimes like when you see they applaud rather than just have total. I I've seen both. But I kinda like the minutes applause. I think there's one uplifting about that. So what you're shipping across the ocean to bring the league is is applause in the way, we honor the dead day death applaud. Yeah. I think serious I kind of like that. But that's only a recent thing. I and I still see. Both. Sometimes they still do the moment of silence. But I don't know. That's something that I've I've kind of when I see that. I I don't know. I think it's nice, look, obviously, I I love the chanting and singing over the course of I think rather than go. Thank you on brew. And what that does for an atmosphere. I just think is is a maze. Ing go. Bob. Cal American sports would would benefit from that. I've also said repeatedly that I love the idea of an away section. Yeah. Now, it's harder to do in the United States because this country so big so it's a lot harder to and you also don't knock out of each other on a regular basis. I games while. Yeah. But like, I just you know, I do the eagles road trips. Like, if all you. You definitely have together. It would be amazing. That would add a lot yet high together in a stadium where games not outskirts of tunnels for his original question of applauding fans. Which league would I choose it for how about all of them? Okay. Cool. All right. Like why even pick? All right Jonathan cleric. Hi, boys. Just want to say I'd be tines day Email, and oh, so I came up with if you could take someone from the world of football out, Valentine's Day dinner, who would be mine woman, man or woman, they're taking a person out for dinner. Who would it be? You're asking me today. So son, son. Oh, yeah. Okay. Korean barbecue, be noise. Whatever he wants talion food, sir. Chinese don't care. Okay. I would take someone interesting. Gary Lineker out. Okay. A Roy Keane? But that's that my phone would go off. And then I'd get the stairs phone. Is that useful Aniston Anthony? S? Hello, Andrew JJ can someone. Explain Mike dean to me. Who is he and why is he become a meme? Also, what's more likely to happen? Spurs winning a trophy or the rap battle who burn love the podcast and take care of the rap battle will happen before the call off site Cup. We will come together, and we will wrap at each other than we will battle people really want this. I still can't dude James the anti has been opt. Right. We did it. Because a lotta footballers were doing wraps, right? Right. But that's over. Not. I don't wanna look Milner literally replied to someone in his tweets who replied to him with a with the slim, shady, what was it? What's the really dark one? Stan. Yeah. So he quoted him STAN lyrics because Milner didn't respond to his tweet Milner responded with STAN lyrics kind. It's the craze that sweeping the sport. Mike Deane is a referee who many people on the interwebs think is trying to insert himself into games either by his refereeing decisions or by the gestures. He makes so it was at the penalty for Manson against Chelsea where he literally did a John Travolta Saturday Night Fever point where he goes. Yeah. He's very like gregarious in in his way. Yeah. On we remember when the rule came in about the we're going to clamp down on grappling at set pieces. And who was the person who gave always he loves gave a penalty two weeks run on couldn't wait yet couldn't wait implemented. So that's him. Jack musso. I really enjoy listening to your podcast. Appreciate who you to enjoy talking about teams that American soccer fans aren't familiar with like Blackpool and leisure knighted. In England are US L teams here in the states. I was what do we have the right podcast. We do talk about the US allocation, we'll talk about it. And you when you talk about it, also when you talk about Blackpool. They were there ownership was a man of was that don't wind up. It was a red carrots segment, and I talk about leaves. I have one when I went to Edinburgh. Scotland I went to a match between Hibs and Aberdeen of the Scottish primarily despite having no time ties to either team and being ignorant American in general come on. I met some Aberdeen way fans who invited me for a round of drinks nice with the whole group in the process met Aberdeen, captain and manager who wanted to tank supporters for traveling overall an awesome time. I'm that sounds awesome. It is no most of my life with Rovers was lower league stuff. Yeah. But I would say over here. I went to see Miami f c versus the cosmos in Coney Island and on a baseball field when the cosmos played their two seasons ago in the no defunct an ESL and who was manager of Miami. F c it was out of Sandro Nesta, one of the critics the Tinyan centreback so weird was that while like, Raul and Marco, son. No, no day. They had retired to season before that. Okay. But what was weird was here's Nesta on a baseball field. On the boardwalk in Coney Island with like the Coney Island. It was so weird. There was like ferris wheels. Unlike attractions rolling behind him and here he is. It's like if I told them in the Champions League final in two thousand and five you're going that's going to be when you're first managerial job so weird. Very strange. Omar, you're gonna hit this. I actually hated the mail to Omar included be watching the game for over twenty. And in the last ten or so a lot of American fans have been coming out. Coming out as Tottenham fans. Mom, dad. Yes. Son. I like Spurs. Oh my God. How long has been going on? Why do you think that is is is that true? Wouldn't you want to choose a team with success? Well, I lost about the lamest. Yeah. It's about the narrow view of sport. Ever. I would say there are lots of Spurs finds in America's sends particularly since NBC started piping in so much. Good Spurs e-content. But why wouldn't you support Spurs is a better question? I mean, you're asking there's lots I I like, I love them. I I'm so happy that that is the club that I support and I felt that way even before this current wave of success. So I I don't know. I don't really Saddam quite I won't calming. With success? All right, fine. So like if everybody wants to be Manchester City fans have fun with that you're on you're not and you're boring and also Thomas I don't wanna go on a boat. But Tottenham is great history. An interesting football club for money, Omar be better Daniel Warwick, I was wondering if you've been following the story of Hekim at our Abby at all which had been huge a huge story over here in a stray Ilya will. Yeah. Thankfully that stories. Come to to a good end. He was in a Thai prison on an extradition warrant from Bahrain where he had been a basically convicted in upstate of crimes during the our spring in two thousand ten twenty eleven he fled to a stray Ilya to seek asylum. And he he he got that and had been arrested then and there was a real danger. He was going to be sent back to Iran and be he was going to be tortured. So there was a lot of work particularly in particularly in the. Australian soccer community to ensure that the trillion government interceded on his behalf and got him back to a stray area. So that is that was a scary story. We saw the hashtag save Akeem going round the internet on. It's it's really good at came to a good end. Yeah. I saw the video of him landing at the airport in Australia, and it was quite a scene. So yeah, definitely happy for a look at safe. And it's got to be one of those most really scary things to be involved in that in a foreign country trying to be deported to our extradite rather to another country where you along or call your home, and where you're in danger of being killed is that it for the mail back that is the mailbox. All right. Good stuff. We move on now to red card. I'm gonna go. I if you don't mind unafraid of this red card because it's going to come across. Here we go. My red card goes to supporters of the club Alvis in Spain. Oh, I'm reading now from the BBC JJ their website Alba's supporters held a mock funeral during their law legal win over Levante in protest at the match being switched to Monday night for live TV coverage large number fans. Also boycotted the kickoff entering the ground five minutes late a banner saying r I p football was held up as fans dressed in black carried a coffin into the stadium. All right. What's wrong? I just need you to help me here with this. Because to me this just feel so overly dramatic the death of football carrying a mock coffin around the ground. I don't wanna sound anti fan because that is what I am not a former player, I'm not a reporter. I am a fan. And those are the only people that I can relate to but of all the things to hate about modern sports. Why are nationally televised sporting events the catalyst for a mock funeral? I understand changing the date with short notice is a bad job by league, bingo, and I'm sure more can be done to combat that. But by the same token, like we only understand the commercialism is a part of sport. No, sorry fans are the crucial point of a football. I'm what's laying football. Andrew is. No, no. What's happening football is people have taken our sport from us and sold it back to us and told us that's the time Ugo basis what you do on your dancing to their Choon at protests. I understand that completely. We'll Everton say one thing though for all the Alvis supporters who were furious with date change. How many were quietly thrilled with it at home? Because now they could actually watch their team play. Like if they couldn't go to the game. If they couldn't get a ticket. They couldn't afford a ticket if they had a conflict, but like okay like a fan in the stadium is paramount. Absolutely. But like not every change. You're you're you're picking here. You're really picking. I think a protest like that reminds those who have captured the game for for commercial reasons dot just remember who's game this is. But like, so this is the thing the portray shin started putting plastered on teams jerseys. No, no, no. Well, whatever that's fine. But like, but this like make putting a game on national television. You're right. La Liga can do more. Like, I'm sure that. I I don't have in front of me when this was announced that this game was being changed from whatever it was supposed to. Be to a Monday night. What about the trialling funds to? Chan short notice. Yeah, I'm saying like more can be done. I'm sure from lollygag to provide more notice on wonder to Santa game until forget there's a larger context of this very league. That was ready to sell it soul to Florida or wherever that anywhere, really. That would take its money. This is a larger thing finds field is if they are being disenfranchised, and it's been a slow creep. I don't know this it just feel it just felt to me watching that that I I just couldn't understand it quite the way that they were ever Everton. So so sorry Everton away at Southampton. Last season was another one they changed the time to suit far eastern TV rights on. It's not like people in the fire. You shouldn't be able to watch. But to the life blood of the Premier League is fans in England. And they shed jewels were changed. I it means completely different commute leaving way earlier, forever and funds. Now Andrea can't allow it. You just can't allow the death of football. Don't that's the way it's heading a after the game as we know it is heading towards a juncture. I don't know how the game will look in ten years time. But it's going to be even. Dramatically different to what was no never mind twenty years ago. I hear every I can I can I preface by saying I knew I was going to come off sounding like a bad guy. Yeah. I did. I totally get that. But like, I just can I say something as well. We don't because of where we live. We don't travel. We don't go to games regularly. We're not in stands regularly. What do you mean? Because of where we live. We don't is that a we like you and me or is that a we like people in the United States. I see games all the time with packed stadiums. What are you talk? No, no. We don't go as as the support or in the ground. Andrea we are not regular supporters in the ground of soccer teams. We're just not on. We don't with. Sometimes we get kind of pulled away because we watched so much of it on TV. We've got pulled away from their experience and how vital they are. And how we must protect them. All right. I ask for your help. I feel like I crushed you. I ask for your help. I needed you to help me aside. Well, I mean you were. You're out of line, quite frankly. No passionate about this one -absolutely. All right. What's yours? I mean, I've I wanted to say all right mine is Mara Cardi this from Ben glad will ESPN AFC myrow at Cardi's future at Inter Milan has been cast in doubt after he refused to travel with the Syria club under trip to Rapid Vienna. After being stripped of club, captain say Accardi who has in the past linked with rail Madrid Man United has been involved in discussions over extending his country with the near at story beyond twenty twenty one. However, the Argentinians future in Milan is no one certain after Wednesday's events just after lunchtime internet via Twitter that goalkeeper Samir. Donovan has replaced. The twenty five year old is club captain shortly afterwards the squad list for Thursday night's Europa league clash in Austria was announced an Cardi's name did not feature upon arrival in Austria courts, Luciano spaghetti explained that he had included Accardi in squad. But the forward said he did not want to play the decision to take. The captain's armband off Accardi was difficult and painful. Because we all know about his values belletti said at a news conference. It is a very hard to take. But is one that everybody within the club shared on one which was taken exclusively for the good of inter Mara was called up for Vienna. But he didn't want to come after launch informed the club that he didn't feel like coming with us. Obviously he was disappointed. But there are things going on which are disturbing him on the team. And here's the context of this the decision to scrap Accardi of the captaincy comes only days after his wife and agent Wanda Nara had caused irritation by complaining that are husband was not being given enough support by his teammates is not scored in the league since mid-december Arana Viet games without finding the back of the net. This is one of those things where I wanna get your opinion on this. With players in America. I wonder I know in the Lonzo ball case, it's very obvious intrusion by family upon another player's career constantly being in the media and commenting. I don't think there's anything irks me more like one Dinara may well be agent on an undisposed. And I know she plays that professional role in his life as well as a million role. But this is just you know, taking too. The media to discuss this just hurts Mara Cardi. You know, it's not helpful. Isn't there a point where it just won't work for your spouse? Be it man or female to be your agent as well or no if I can think of an example of that. Now, you see all the time people like athletes who their parents serve and like an agent role. And even then like, I remember it with Eric Lindros when he was with the flyer. There was issues with that. When his father was his agent. But yeah, I don't know if I can off the top of my head think of a situation where an athlete spouse, I come not also their agent, I'm not blaming her exclusively. But the fact she's in the media's well making comments. There was a player who's there was a player in the in the NFL Brent Grimes whose wife Mieko Grimes was not as agent, but she was very outspoken. And you know, she would she was just she was very willing to speak her mind. And I think he got cut from the dolphins. And I think I remember them saying that like she was part of like they're thinking in that that they just didn't need whatever the the outside aggravation that it may have caused. Yeah. But I I don't know if I can think of one exactly like lost the captaincy he should be in the position he's negotiating a contract extension. He's the captain of the club. Carries the face of that franchise. Oh, yeah. This is terrible. Very weird. Oh, let's see caught off sides man of the match gave my to Mekelle. Antonio. We talked about this West Ham. Supporters have been under the microscope lately, we spoke about Jacob Steinberg of the guardian how he kind of came out kind of really strongly came out against the mentality of some of his club's supporters, which we applauded now. It seems that a West Ham player in Antonio has followed suit he said that clubs should be docked points or forced to play behind closed doors of their fans are guilty of racial abusive games. Here's some what he had to say at on Sky Sports talking about racism in football. I'm gonna blame FA because I don't feel that shirt enough on once it happens stemming from coming in the Broadway with Donny rose when they will make an a monkey shots. It was a whole crowd at the team talking with have find if it's happening. It's not just one person. I feel the team should be also we'll cough because there's no I in team. That's the same. If it's doing to one person doing it to the team because they get in the way that they thinking maybe we can get away. But he also talked about how to combat racism in football. Finding individuals us nothing. It does nothing that one person. Okay. He gets Bentiu live to be on this. No one has a picture of his face. He can get back into the state you number two. If you affect that team. These friends loved that if you start affecting the team so that one fence like the fake, tune the team the friends their friends, he's friends all gonna turn on him. So if you start putting gays behind closed doors deducting points, then the problem is inside themselves race will never be stopped. But racing could be stopped in focus agents. Good for him to sell this, especially now with West Ham, his own club being kind of at the center of a lot of this. Yeah. I wonder I wonder what it work. Players speaking out monop- player, speaking out so much, but his idea of of docking points from clubs and and. I don't know. Matches have been played behind closed doors, and it still continues. It can only on or. No, it's not. It's not the it doesn't how solution, but it can only stuff like that can only help. I would think I mean, if if somebody, you know, if someone says something stands up and shouts something like, I I've got to believe right now people who are afraid of conflict who don't want to say anything don't wanna get involved. If they know that points are at stake like people like people shouting, racist abuse crowd will be shouted down by fans around them. I believe that one hundred percent if they if fans know that they're clubbing docked ten points is at stake. Yeah. At some of certainly some the football could can do supposed to get to the real root. Cause of why someone goes to a stadium on hers as Brooke abuse it someone. Yeah. That's what we got to get to my man of the match Marco variety. Here is Julian Orion on the BBC talking about the lifestyle of variety after his superb showing at Old Trafford on Tuesday for me variety because he was not fit because he was one hundred percent because you only played one game in the last month because last week he was partying until six AM in the morning for name ause birthday because he smokes because he drinks because he's out pretty much every evening of the week. And then comes out with a game like this tonight. I'll traffic I think is just insatiable. And if he had the the lifestyle of presented were not advice, but the work ethic of I don't know way would be in terms of world class fiddler's, but the ability has combined with the lifestyle the lifestyle he has at the moment and yet still being able to put our performance tonight. I think just incredible. Maybe if he had the lifestyle of Cristiano Renaldo he wouldn't be as good as he is. That's what. I said to you or he would be unstoppable. He's a great player hot. But did you find the same? I don't know. I really liked that to hear this about a professional in this era of marginal gains and measuring body fat and tracking players running and all that stuff. I don't know it. Yeah. Maybe I'd be curious. Visit did you? Maybe it's me thinking about days gone by. Well, there's something human about it. Yeah. That is endearing. Yeah. It is in Deering. But it's not like if you lose the could so easily be spun around into like today, it's a positive. Oh, this is so silly looking drunk, and now he's awesome. Like, yeah. But like, I don't know what happens when he has a bad game. Do you think it's a cultural thing in terms of France versus England. Do you think I don't know? I can only think of here think that we England English football at the after Vangere became so puritanical that remember was she says Neal had a cigarette in the shower. And then there was Jack Wilshere was pictured with a cigarette out. She think we became so pure tonic in the English game that I was stunned by the Jack Wilshere stuff stunned really shocked that a cigarette would cause such a controversy. Yeah. It did. He was suspended, right? Or was he find fi-? Find a think that's what like that's crazy to me. You know, I like I like to human element. I think guys when I hear that about Roddy. I think automatically of Alan Iverson. No. You told me I resume Woody was legendary partier, but he he would be out the night before a game playoff game. I wouldn't think varieties two in the playoff games. Enormous. And then he'd show up and he dropped thirty five. I remember before against the Pacers the playoffs in two thousand as possible he needed that. Needed it. No, I'm I would think not I think it was just a part of his lifestyle that he couldn't look there's a reason he stopped playing at a high level at age like what was a thirty five or so before maybe even younger than that. Like he probably could've kept playing, but he lived hard. So I it seems like Markova rotties kind of the cut from the same cloth. So interesting. Yeah. Well. There you go. It's going to be long. It is not a Premier League weekend as an FA Cup weekend. But we will be back next week with a discussion on all those matches. We'll see if Manchester City are able to survive Newport county, and that pitch at Rodney unpowered, Ammon, former Rovers player can they survive him the goal machine to you. I say take later, I'll see you take care. Listening to Kadhafi side sucker podcast. I can't believe it that Gerald is presenting the quarterly budget report with finger puppets. Look here comes one point seven percent decrease in fixed overhead I know everybody. No, I can't believe how easy it was to save hundreds of dollars on my car insurance. Gyco. Are you Bill? Projected increase in organic revenue. I believe that guy. Go could save you fifteen percent or more on car insurance.

It went beneath allison and ryan stolen scoring one against his former side. You know how bad blood that is. Between between lewellen manchester city <hes> ryan stolen and manchester city well the second half saw that it started brightly however after van dyke shot which was not entirely on side of the goal line and silent short which was denied by the post the goal came from liverpool when a freekick was delivered diagnose wendy who lobbied automatic at the far post and cameroonian international mid nausea made no hesitation putting it boss claudio bravo one one bang game on on an informed the we are in for a very novi finally twenty minutes then and <hes> that he'll say could can consider themselves lucky that that saleh effort was kept out unbelievably by the acrobatic guile and that was a last-ditch challenge. I've i haven't seen many better than those.

A Classic Klassiker

"As someone who lives in breeze college football. I can promise you that this season will bring the mayhem. You'll feel it during huge wins and heartbreaking losses on Dame winning. Dr. Drives it in post game. Fender bender. This season teaming up with AllState highlight these key moments. The let fans know mayhem can show up on game day. Imagine what can happen the rest of the week for expert advice. Call your local agent today. Everyone on welcome to fresh addition of ESPN FCA, I'm Alexis soon as back with my partner in West Indian crime shack, his my tailbone IT. We'll be joining us as well later on to talk some more football and what our weekend to be back shackled. We've got a host of juicy fixtures. And it doesn't get bigger than this. At least in Germany in the Bundesliga all I've were on this one Dortmund hosting buyer Munich who have not been enjoying a good start to the season. A lot of pressure on Kovacs to see if the baron boys kinda bounced back ten minutes now. Is where we pick things up Markelle Royce winning the ball but his shots. Get saved by Neue become used to the higher pressure from bursar Doberman. What we've not used to seeing Markle Royce make a mess of those opportunities. All right here. We saw taken down by visa, but no call shock. Should this have been not for me? I don't think there's enough contact refugee that one. Right. Well, twenty six minute now is where things change it Levin with a header makes it one nil. Byron Reverend Oscar all alone sent of the box. You knew he wasn't gonna make a mystique from there. The cross themselves. Nabi thing of absolute beauty second half. Now Neue taking down marker Royce to this have been a penalty. I'm. Happy with this call I think commits overly show tries to pull out mix enough contact for me county giving ROY she was brought down convinced easily stories tied one piece fifty second minute now Kimmage finding Levin ski and he scores by lead to one commercials kept on side by the player who just drifted off the field and then come back in and then just stands at eleven skied again to yards out. No keeper no problem that man is not missing from there. But what about this man now Royce again missing from here shock? Yeah. This one surprise me ball takes defection getting to him. But once you takes I touch Joan you thought it would be a goal. Good defending date on Sancho finding Paco out cafe and he just can't get the shot in again thing on the goal line. But this is a waste of choosy from Caserta here for me. Tickets. Clues time sixty minute now hanging fines Markelle Royce yet again. But his shot just goes wide Roy's show crucial to everything about Borussia Dortmund just couldn't get his shooting boots on or so you don't have time about Marco, Royce. And that is why he levels scoring again to to check with the cross. And this is a very difficult skill hallway controls that finds you power prize. The direction is beyond me that was tastic by Royce seventy third minute now barren turning over the ball. Axel is about to find this man right here that we've been talking about Cassese gonna score easy going to score. Yes. He does and Dormont take the lead. Once Arca comes off the bench. Somehow he finds himself on the scoresheet. But this from what we've been missing all game long those forward passes that pressing of buying Munich higher depart wanting to get in behind it every opportunity fire started to do it. They got their rewards. Well, that was an all we heard from Myron before ski appears to score here. Well, he's called off side. He says no though, shackled. He says, no. But once you have a look at the replay refugee system gets this right Levin dossey just off site. Good furnish. But the linesman's right? So that does not read well for buying Munich fans and their struggles continue as Borussia Dortmund take this one just having a look at some of the. Statistics there shackled. But how great was this game? It really was and the O'Kelly shade was a game of two halves especially from a brochure. Dortmund perspective. Byron started really well. The likes of Frank rebury involved from the start giving Lucas paycheck and amp salute roasting in the first half all of this game that you sure by Munich pressing higher playing at a higher temple numbers, your document, which is not something to be able to see an awful lot for quite some time Dortmund struggle to really find their rhythm. And then when they did, and we'll get on the other side of Munich amazingly. Royce was very wistful firm. Also, the need expect from him. And then all of a sudden the second half starts, they get that Parenti as a said in the highlight. I thought was you correct call toward the penalty. And then you show their best rather than looking for these the sideways. Pas I and trying to go by. In that. We they started to get those flicks as you show with the winning goal moving the ball forward pushing by me and the pressure and then an aging by mimics gorgeous couldn't keep up with buying with. Berkshire Dortmund as we said about Bush adornment pretty much from the opening of this season the youth the temple they play with it's hard to live with for ninety minutes. Even if you're buying Munich for banks live with them for ninety minutes. So what about the entire season? Now as you just said an aging squad now by Munich are seven points behind doorman who top the Bundesliga at this moment. So how worried should their fans be now very at this point? Now, a lot can change seven points is a rescue believed for by mimic, especially the place that they will to call on the resources that they may may turn to come January. Who their coach me be in in December or January time already on Kovac? Well, I think we'd have to see I think is something that's the the board will be looking at unthinking about seriously, especially when it comes to the Champions League as I said seven points is retrievable. But if Bonn continued to fall time continue to show these deficiencies, and you see that MS spillover in. The Champions League. Yes. I think this by mini boards. Sydney can't pull the plug on Cova fee that need on the other side of the coin as much as we talk about buying experience. And they knew and can retrieve a seven point deficit the question for for Brescia dogmatise dischord had the experience to to lead from the front. It's easier to cheese, and it is to lead similarly, given the high temple style. Can they continue in this Wien through an entire season through the competitions in domestic competitions and through the Champions League right now. It's a good problem to have right now. If I'm backing somebody to win this league. I'm backing all right. Well, let's have a look at some of the player ratings for Borussia Dortmund shack. There you have it who stood out for you for me. It's got to be marker, Royce and given a nine hair. But his first performance was a six, but only expect no no what we expected of a tall. But at the same time and as much as we speak about the youth of Borussia Dortmund, and as tempted as we are to think of Markle Roy's as part of that youth. He's one of the more senior and experienced players know and a very disappointing. I fortified by his standards, yet still goes into the break comes out and takes his game over almost. Singlehandedly in the second half. That's mockeries we knew and we've fall in love with over the last few years, and you just wonder hold much better or how much how much accolade we'd have he would have. But for those injuries. And you see exactly how big a miss. He can be when you see exactly hotel anted. He is once it gets going. Focused now to the primarily Crystal Palace hosting Tottenham. Harry Kane they're expecting a lot from this man because he's your fantasy cameras on the thirtieth minute though. His long range shots was saved comfortable for Hennessy despite the conditions strike by hurricane though, fifty four th minute off a palace corner from Tompkins tongue. James Trump can just shrugs aside as Markelle should have done better, sixty six minute. Now defining moment of the game. Twenty year old one of Argentina gets the header and Spurs take the one nearly he just follows in after the ball is blocked on the line. You see joy in history. Kittery time. Now lorries has quite a save their shocker solo should have done better this close in. He had a little bit more time than that replay would suggest I thought he should have scored once you get within six. Yep. Tina, very happy man for that one win. But overall county Spurs record away from home if they all play their matches away from home. They'll actually I in the table. But instead they are not they have played eight games away from home and those age they have won seven so knows home sleep home for them. I suppose. Living onto elsewhere in the Premier League Southampton up against what foot will take this up in the sixty six minutes. Saints already one nail the past fines, Charlie Austin. And he looks at home off the deflection takes prosecutor. But that joy is short lived as Iran says, no, no, no, no no of side on understanding disappointed from Charleston when you see replay. Again, you see what the lines one is thinking player any picture is affecting the goal people. I'm not so sure I think the deflection is what puts the goalkeeper off my opinion should have stood definitely not a happy eight their eighty second minutes the failed clearance falso plus say Hello and his shot deflects in and we are level. Yeah. Sure. Instead of Southampton being two-nil at this point all of a sudden, they find themselves one what after? Deflections ears again and the match finished one one. But Charlie Austin was not a happy man after the game. Charlie that equaliser must be sickening. Ridiculous. I Chaman guy. We could go Mike toenail games dust. It wouldn't guy Fisher straight points died standard. Explain can you. Explain. Hit my choice. Hit may foster to joke about this health officials out clearly they need help. Clearly, we lead the league in the world watch league load. Give him all the help they need because krill Costa two points tonight joke. All right. So Charlie us in their very emotional. And I would say rightfully so shack a pleading for VAR, basically, understandably on the one hand Hampton continue to struggle every point is valuable point when you're tendon detail for Charleston players made his name and living by scoring goals to see goals disallowed. Or be rather frivolously is a hard thing to take new question. The prema- league should have our but prema- League Managers voted in April. Not too old to continue the testing fees of are. There was some speculation. I was a unanimous vote. I won't I won't echo that just yet. A lonely official documentation says they got the two majority from the vote now keep in mind that Mark Hughes. Charleston's manager would have been a part of the vote as he'd been manager for Santon as of much so. As much as you understand Charlie Austin's, frustrations as managers you have to look to here as to why this isn't yet a part of the primer league. Now, some of those managers who voted against v are back in April on no a little bit upset at some of the decisions, and the fact that referees on able to call in technology, but some controversies we've seen not just in the premium league to start with what we three months four months into the show. You knew what when this vote comes around next time at freely assume it's going to be an April of nineteen I expect everybody everybody to be on board. But give them some give them some of the misunderstandings. Some of the made in England's testing during the FA Cup. Give them some of the early teething issues. Jimmy and Italy had maybe you under you can understand why why the prema- League Managers were reluctant. But when you see our work as well as it did and the World Cup. No, all of a sudden second guessing decisions. And unfortunately, there was no get out of jail free card between the end of the workup on the started prima league season. They have to live by that decision. I think we're gonna see a lot more of these decisions. Indeed. But thanks to check a history of your work is done for the day. Good to be back with you. Let's have a look at the primarily table Manchester City right there at the top. Remember there in action tomorrow with their cross town rivals? The United in juicy Manchester Dari that's on Sunday. And we will definitely be tuning into that. Geico presents eyewitness interviews with inanimate objects. This is Belinda Collins live on the scene of a recent hailstorm here to describe the event of a bro. I was just hanging on the roof. When this gnarly storm starts dropping baseball sized hail. Shingles got beat up a few windows broken who savage digital anything to help narrow. I was in survival mode. Your football can't help you in a hailstorm. But the gyco co insurance agency can help you get covered for personal property damage. Call gyco to see how a Ford -able homeowners insurance can be. Ooh. Juicy one in the city at tomorrow Sunday two twenty pm eastern time on ESPN, plus eighty Milan hosting you vent us make sure to tune into that one. I know somebody that will be myself and this man right here on Nancy our very own city expert, but I'm Kelly to get into this game with him because he wants to shy away from it because he's ever the professional an AC Milana boy through and through some Matteo how much are you looking forward this game. I don't know if me LA nation is necessarily looking forward to this game meal under missing their spine to centrebacks. And of course, Lucas big mea all out for months and the way that you've meant this have been playing compared to the way meal and have played recently. You think of that meal on game mid week in the euro played against wral beddis where they were truly awful in the first half. It was one of the worst performances that I can remember from me LAN. But of course, the story lines are plentiful Gonzalo Egwu Wayne turns to play event. Bonnici who was at meal and for one season, they even give them the captain's armband and now he's backing event this both should start. Those are the latest indications in the Italian media. It's a game. That means so much to me llahu who finally are in the top four who won to stay in a champ Zeke spot event, this already building a bit of a buffer as well between then and second place, so they could really pull away with Napoli dropping not picking up all three points. This is such a vital game for both teams as you said, you mentioned champions, they talking about events that lost matches United some basically say that they weren't hurting too much from that. But what are you expecting from them as they go to the sense hero latest indications from you. It's going to be de up more yeoman's Zouk it's back from injury. And of course, Cristiano Renaldo they have so much firepower. This is the difference between event the other teams and said he is they have death at every single position. And you look at Milan when they lose one or two or three players Janata of the meal and manager has to change formation. He's been alternate. He's been playing three at the fact that gone too. Four. He seems very confused tactically. The good thing is though that the players in the locker room are fully behind Tuesda. Even though we've heard murmurs Arsene Wenger in the shadows. Even those lots any Brima choose also been rumored to go to there's a better chance of joining than Wang, or so let's put the coaching controversy aside because right now milliner into top four, but they have not been playing the best football. I think they miss Lucas bigly. I never thought it'd be saying that but without Mattel Musacchio the center back for a few months without my Dada. Another centreback. So this is going to be depleted Milan. Side that needs all the star power that they can have can. I squeeze quick prediction out to go for it gone. Give it to me to one for you Ventas, and they can't get away. Both says it because I don't wanna be too emotionally invested in this one or else all away with pain. Once again, I think you've enters get a massive three points at saints here, which by the way, nearly ninety thousand attendance the atmosphere is gonna be rocking. I think you just want the interference get after you. All right. Let's get into some city action from today Genoa hosting Napoli when I make predictions for this one I thought it was gonna be care cut, but twelve minute now in senior shooting from the long range, but his shot goes off the post, but here in senior so good from outside the box scores cutting in on his right out there. And like I said I thought this was going to be easy to predict but we'll predictions out of the window. And I saw this one general taking the one lead of this twenty year old truck or crush on. All the talk about Kristof. Piontek Syria goal score wasn't scored in five games. It was the Qantas show today. And she lots see not a happy man with his team that point thirty-six vow saving deed. I don't know if y'all knew Ron through the. Chennault goalkeeper knew too much about the diving towards the center and that ball could've gone anywhere. It goes right to him. And here's our things get messy look at that rain. It looks like hurricane see spring in the Carribean. The game was delayed for about ten minutes. And then despite all that water still on the pitch. We had a game a Napoli find there. What about the ball from juries Merlin's? These are the two second-half substitutes on chill out these masterstroke to bring on far beyond Andries Mertens lovely hit with the weaker foot as well from far beyond eighty six minutes. Now, still look at all of that water there. But not only again, probably the rain did them good because they get that second goal to go to one up so important here, of course, trying to keep pace with you Venice. Well, of course, that was an own-goal of confirmed the goal there was a claim for a foul. But in the end Napoli get the win at two one. If we have a look at the top half of the city ass standings. You'll see inventors there at the top sitting pretty thirty one points as Milan who again, they will face right there in fourth and Napoli in second on twenty eight point. So let's talk because like I said on paper, I kind of expected this to just go not police way. But overall your impressions on this game. Can't even judge the second half of football. Giving the swamp that Napoli play with Napoli thing. I was okay for them to come back. So quickly even wonder, and I know any goes in Italy. But it wasn't football was being played. I was surprised sometimes they postponed games in the past. But in city, you never know. And the mossy the stadium where that game was the play that has notoriously terrible drainage systems. So the second starts pouring it piles up. It wasn't proposes little triples over the top with Napoli when juries Mertens isn't playing. I think they're fundamentally a different team. To get the best version of Napoli trees. Moore has to be in. Of course. That's because attic Milic striker who alleviates Mertens when he's getting arrested was in. But when Mertens came on the second half and fob young came on to have more technique. They certainly have more talent. And I feel like dreamers right now is Napoli's most important player the way that he links up as well. And just look at the goal. How came Therese Mertens backheel to find another player that I wanna see in the starting lineup through thirty million euro signing morale beddis, but Napoli right now need to keep up with your Venice. It's been now the one that we've expected in the last few seasons to give a lot of pressure to you. But in the end you've always pulled away with it at the end. And of course, we want competitive school that all right? So we Napoli for the neutrals perspective to keep up with the Bianco. Eddie and not let it be over by Christmas. I have to worry about that. But Ancelotti, and he's also have this to worry about the Champions League Napoli were in action made week. And there you have it there at the top of the table joint. Top with Liverpool on. Six points. I have PS G and Red Star Belgrade. So Mattel your overall thoughts on Napoli's form in the Champions League. And their likelihood of getting out of this group considering there some other two big names there that are rushing for that spot. This is the closest group it's one of the most competitive groups as well, especially given the way that Redstar has been playing getting a result at home against Liverpool won a moment for them. Throw it out then four Napoli. This isn't Modine soussan if you'll manager who only played the same eleven players they tired him out. And in Europe. You never got the success that they wanted cuddle on sheltie has one more champions leagues than city that the keep that in mind. This is a manager. Who knows exactly how to get results in this stage of the competition? I think Napoli get out of this group. I felt they deserved a lot more in their game against potty soldier Monday. Were brutally unlucky totally come away with one point in the last round as well. Napoli their style is why I love football. I think it's why fans start falling in love. I don't wanna get to Philip. But they really do play Napoli. This matter if the coaches Saudi or unsure lofty, not only their affective, but they play the most aesthetically pleasing football. I think in Europe alongside maybe mentioned your city. I hope they go through for football sake. All right. Well, let me see what you think about Inter Milan. Of course, I know your professional groupie in the Champions League, they are right behind Barcelona but good results mid week. I guess we could say that Spurs also came back to life and PSV in this group. So your thoughts on inter in the Champions League, and who gets through very different team, the Napoli inter the very physical. They'll play very defensive counterattack. That's how they were forced to play against Barcelona, and they were incredibly lucky to have a point against Barcelona as well at the sun pseudo because Barcelona dominated the could've put four or five goals past them in that game. I thought the Knicks came away with a bit of luck. It's all down tomato if he's not scoring. It's like interplay in ten he's under striker that brings in players striker that can hold up the ball. All that can link up he's one dimensional, but I think one dimensional in the fact that he only scores goals, which is great. Here's one goal. Every twenty six touches, which is the most insidious the most of any striker just to give you ninety s so they need him scoring in these games. But also to provide him with the service working get a clear chance remaining on November twenty eight into Milan facing Spurs away. And then December eleventh, they are home to PSV. How do you see these two games going and overall their likelihood of just getting out to the group Spurs into the game that you want to circle on your calendar that will decide who goes through to the next round and is going to be so difficult for enter to there. But we know that Spurs ninety like playing at home these days. So that might be advantage in Europe is a very different competition though. And this intercept isn't exactly have a wealth of champ Z competition. Many of these inter players playing the chamber for the very first time. It's been a long time since shows marina was in northern Italy. All right. Thanks so much say, oh, well, speaking of internal line, you can catch them in action. Tomorrow sunday. Six twenty five and Easter time up against Atalanta on ESPN two Mateo will be up bright and early with the Roosters to call. Welcome into extra time. I hope the NBA's watching because I've got to hear that should be NBA players says they are set here with me with all their high Montauban empty and Shakai his Hislop now before we get into all of your questions. I have a question for you matab because shocking. I we're talking after watching their classics. Do you think I'm Tony Kante could go to buying good? Wait. Okay. I stuff on demands and expects one of the highest wages in world football. They wanna pay him that amount. Sure. Are they going to get the kind of football that buyer Munich is known for absolutely not I'm going to name drop here. But several legends have told me that playing for is the most difficult thing training is nowhere near as fun. Just listen to what the Chelsea players are saying now, we are catch up back. They got that Brown back. They want Modise Asami. They're tired of Qantas ways. No. I don't want him at. But the question is if buying decide to get rid of Kovacs know who to replace them. It's not that many not that many big names out there is the one, but he's collecting very big paycheck right now to just be on an extended vacation. So I don't think he wants to go anywhere at the moment. Once that headache who wants none of you. That's for. Sure. All right. Let's. Right. Lessons shocking. Kartik wants to know wouldn't the big matches beats classical or others. We should happen. Almost every week in the euro European Superleague lose their value. If they are played regularly. One reason these mashes are craved is because they are so rare tell what you think Kordic if the Super League happens, I'm done with football. I'm gonna go find another job, I would have milk, and I'll call and the last all any extreme with European football. This would be the ruin of football. He's upset me. Right. The mystique of the matches that we've come to expect would be gone all the domestic leagues would be ruined. It would be a case of the elite richest get richer. And that is this is not good for football is good for casual fans who just got into the game two years ago. And they wanna see a Chaim seek match every week. That's not how it works really have the championship. It's angering me right now that we even have to talk about this. It's ridiculous. Everybody wants to that. I cannot add to the with me to one hundred one into Montana one hundred and one percent hates going to anger me. All right. Let's move on. Now. This one's from Chris big boss dog Nick over. Nick over on as asking would you say that jobs as conduct after the events is game is acceptable. Mattel is what was that? He also that couldn't wait a little bit. Yeah. Absolutely. He's the perfect villain. He makes sports more entertaining. We need Josie Marino and his antics because what he was getting changed things that I can't repeat on air. If I want this job tomorrow. He was getting things for ninety minutes by the fans, which were terrible which you expect in the talent statements, which I love as well. That's why it's heat, and they remember him from inter so why not have a little bit of this. After the game. I loved it. I want more of this sport to check. I know you said it's on the show here this week because it's not like he said or showed anything it was really rude that we will stay that needed to be bleeped out. I was please. Or in this case as a manager you are subject to all kinds of abuse from stan's and very often. You don't have an avenue to get back at them. I think if you to do that without. Crossing the proverbial line. Give by you give back to those fines. Good as you have. Absolutely, no problem with it. And I saw nothing role where Joe's did. I have no problem the module having go back at funds who'd been abusing him all game long family. All right. All right question. So I guess told the line, but don't cross it's somewhere else is asking would you who do you think should win the Balon Dior that's from level gang to break up the monotony of Messier and whole Domeisen killing them. Bob, a low one over the summer the World Cup. If you look at five your model, Nevada winning the door. If you look at him that was because of the town World Cup in two thousand six he was a teenager. He was a pivotal part for France. I think he's gonna be the future as well. So give it to kill him in Bombay. Why not let's have some. I'll tell you. If you don't get out to this group stage this season around is hard to make that case at the end of twenty eighteen and a no so usual name, but Christiane I'll do has made the leap from Spanish for bowl to talian. And almost hasn't lost a step continues to to do. Incredible things game continues to be in the voting. I just for posterity seek would like to see a different name. But I'm not sure who CV Stuck's as well as rebounds. All right moving. I now finally this one's from Nick. And he wants to shock has one hundred clean sheets in one hundred seventy nine career appearances for athletic. Oh, how isn't he better than Debbie? The hair. Without question for me Yano block while the five goalkeepers to recent five, and he was in thinking might have been in fifth, but don't shoot me, Nick. But for me, I think over the last few years Dovid hair had established himself as number one. Think you almost a lesser version of Dovid hit this season menu. Hide in previous. I know go get me wrong. Take some to him because I felt that avid to here had been simply exception for the last four or five seasons at the same time Teigen, I think it's continue to improve. I have him. Don't number one. No. But that being said if I had to choose a goalkeeper between black and the hair right now, I still go with the hair again. Don't get me wrong. We're talking about two incredible goalkeepers not a lot between them. But I give the head. End-all forgo. Keep a top. Exactly. What about you? I'm gonna give it to John Luigi. Boo. Fall edgy. Much. One quick question before we go shopping. Have you apologized to the half for your critique in two thousand and nine apparently our viewers into this show of a couple of weeks ago. But whether. Apologized to hear over your asleep. Oh shit. I mean, Montana got some Italian legends numbers like easily apparently. So we. Found what is lit. Two years ago.

Red-Hot Haaland Delivers Again

"Welcoming Solicitation ESPN AFC on the day. The Champions League was packed with a bang on dance. Amish on by Craig Burley and STEVIE NICKEL GAB. Markazi will be with us in a moment as well later on in. The show should be impeached by two goals to one once again ailing. Harland stealing the show but we start in Madrid at. Let's see taking on the defending champions Liverpool and it'd be simione decide that win by one goal to nil Sowell's strike in the fourth minute proving to be the difference between the two sides in the first leg live without a single shot on go throughout this entire match. All the build up to this game was the fact. That athletically aren't the team they used to be. There are teaming transition. Meanwhile Liverpool unbeaten in Lalita and in the Premier League. Sorry how does this happen because we have to play the Games you know? It's not about your plan at the teams are but what's hunt previously. That just tries to give people an indicator of what we think's GonNa Happen but the truth is probably the worst performance Liverpool of Hod for maybe twelve months came wrong line and probably the best performance athletic for twelve months so good that they looked like the oldest Laczi the fighter in Liverpool never go short. One goal tells you that this team did defend did defend for the lives. That was one chance when Sala short moisture headed from just off the line but that was their goalie. Kip GOALKEEPER NO SHAPES TO MAKE. They defended well on the break. I've never seen Liverpool Luke so vulnerable especially during their rate. Athletics left Liverpool's Alexander. Round old doesn't doesn't pick up good positions defensively and doesn't know when to go and challenge. That means that the Mon- nexium Gomez finds himself a no-man's-land everything came down not save and and actually we have fifteen minutes ago. It's onto you and say you know what I'll take a one defeat today because quite frankly and coup Gulf and should have been more so van Dyke make a mistake in the falstaff at least with the head of it put the Murata and luckily for him it was Murata and he hesitated and fluff fluff these lines. But wasn't that was not a disaster if you one of your worst performances by standards this is a surprise and thank Athletic Lever Pillow and I think this is how far the two teams of sorta drifted opposite directions in the last couple of years or last eighteen months as if they do not live a pull out and it's still a big F. It would be a shock. I think it would be a shot. No a couple of years ago when it was not rugged ugly horrible play against Letty site. It wouldn't have been because nobody wanted to play them for the factor changed. They're struggling and Lolita liberal been on the Front for an almost every game as a little bit of a surprise what happened. I mean yeah probably cut believe. He's luck when these bed last night thinking. I'm going to be the busiest season the nothing to do bill plea on the stand that this this happens. Right and to deliver for one of these anomalies. When when when you're sitting on the say with these with these coaches at the same the disabled who take off they taking anybody off the one person that covered the south and any sort of glory and that includes Van Date because the foster the goal comes from his pure attempt to clean a bowl. So when you turn up and every single one of the players as below average You you try and figure out one. We know arms because we we've been in the middle of it professionally and and you know it's common and you don't know when it's coming where it came to be about being a normally but they did lose the Napoli as well in the group stages where once again they looked very much a shadow of the side they normally are in the premier league. What are still this season. It was still it. Still within this context of Liverpool looking so amazing envisages scenario where we're not talking about Liverpool in the next round I can say yes say individuals scenario which loop wouldn't have zero shots on target and that's why it's an only because you don't want it. It's common the only thing you know as there's going to be performances where you just know. Oughta and too. Many of the team are not going to be. You just don't know when it's common you just hope and pray that either one you get away with her or two when you do lose you lose. Lee either tonight. One nil going home and you still. You still fevers lesbian in this tie. Guy Marzorati as I said with us as well cab. What do you make of it? Well it looks like the boy said it's as if I play the turn back the clock to to become the team that you know they were two three years ago albeit without the leadership of of people like codeine human is on the break Gabby midfield but they played the script very very well. I was really impressed. We will wealth and talk about how Liverpool's fullbacks switch to play. They had a lot of trouble doing it. It looked as if if always knew it was coming and always had a guy there. I think you know the descript of sitting back and defending deep unclogging spaces against Liverpool. That's a pretty obvious. One many teams have tried it. I think it worked for in part because they were home in part because they have better players than I think some people give them credit for in part because Liverpool had an off-day and largely because they scored straight away and I think that that changed the game that changed. Liverpool's approach a lot. But the boys are right. You have to TVs at the beginning. You have to go and play the game one of the truth of football and tell you what doesn't slip. That could easily have been two nil as well. Let's go Mr Trick. I think that Mr Trump one goal couple of shots on target Liverpool as averages of been for a long long time and one. Now trae I really do. I still say it when you think unfilled as it was last year for the Buffalo game which was incredible and then you thank athletic team although the trying to change going to give up ground getting pummeled by Liverpool pressure after pressure after pressure. I don't think we're going for one. Moment see Aleppo aid but this Kozulin slack and the final thought as we saw tonight. Gop I take your point but I somebody made the point before the teams are very comfortable when they're being pummeled. Some teams don't mind not having the ball and I think that's the reality of Legal Madrid equally. The screws can get ratcheted up on Liverpool as well. You know knowing that we need to score we need to prolong this game and Athletico also have obviously a world class keeper one of the very best of the world who've been going and stand on his head and shutdown opponents singlehandedly when he's on his day so all those things together to me. It's it's going to be. It's going to be very uncomfortable. A for Liverpool as to why he didn't push on and score a second goal. I think it would have been ideal for them. Obviously if it had happened but the reality is this team has scored more than one goal very often over the last two or three months. It just not something that they're very comfortable doing or very good at doing. And this is not the oldest lexical. Today was the last thing they produced. You know we're talking about who whole Liverpool produced the wasp performance from nowhere and this team today pleased the best performance from nowhere as well right the best is that. GonNa Happen twice and now. They're saying they're happy to give up. Possession know as much as the team from a couple years ago. They were Sally happy with the world and ugly. I. We don't care if you knock fifty crosses into the box because we're going to head away we're going to fight and scrub. This is slightly different looking at the site. And I think the reason to kept a clean sheet tonight was not because the rugged defensive unit because Liverpool were pretty awful in the final how misguided with the celebrations at the end from Athleti so semi off in Michigan. It's like they just won the tie over. Two legs book took place in the quarter-finals. I understand significance of this win but is only a half time if you like is it matters that motivate Liverpool any more is a problem. Then you could get on the complain. All of the right word is just no. It's just another little bit more on the top of the fact that they want to win anyway and it's not a surprise when semi only I mean my goodness I mean we were laughing. Our He's put spent the most part of the second half standard during those two Dakota. Yeah I'm surprised. He saw the game which is fair. Does yeah assume it's not going to be the only thing it will do. Stop some of the players stop throwing spot remember so some will remember not from a neutral point of view right great result. Yeah Lacey Full Sutton leg dead. That is now obsolete again. We have a game in our Hans quickly. Who's going for Liverpool Liverpool Liverpool gap? Yeah headsets Liverpool Of course it's going to be a fascinating atmosphere once again and filled in just a reminder if you have a missile show and it's a busy few weeks in the footballing world you can go over to the website and download our daily podcast. You can also do that as well via apple podcasts. We were promised goes weren't we between Bruce U. P. S. sheep for a while they were none in fact to the sixty nine for a minute but then again just exploded into life Holland on his Champions League debut for Borussia Dortmund would make it one. She quickly equalised licenses would find name. Earning Harland would school the winner and this kid is on fire at the moment when I say the winner it was Josh. A rocket from outside the box to give rooster eight to one lead going into the second like eleven goals in seven games since joining and doorman over the summer. It seems the place to start. Isn't it when you've got the likes mbappe and Neymar on the Pitch Harlan? Who Everyone's talking about it yesterday whenever the document whether they're playing in the Bundesliga Champions League the first thing almost every snow is is Holland plan. Right and here's a guy. A teenager is doing at the elite level as doing it for deliveries previous call is doing for best club a by a huge club in Germany which is under appreciably perform in the knockout stages against one of the biggest spenders in European football in the last decade and he just doesn't seem phased I mean. There are parts of his game that he knows himself and he said I need to on something is foster archer. These is just needs to slow down a little bit. But in general for some of his age he has been immense the first when it went and he scored it. We like everything is just falling because the ball spun around failing schools. That second one was world-class. Yeah he had a lot to do to defend in front of him and and the piece that you hit the ball with with with very little bike left you know the Bowl Pasta goalkeeper before they move. Because you want you thinking he's going to have to go a little further to get on and as you're thinking that the ball's new back of the net. That's a talent. That's that's good given and this guy has got talent another thing. I love to things on the way. This guy is a plays he plays. It could guy who just wants to school goals. He's smiling all over that he's running around and running around and had I'm looking at. I'm looking at him bobby. We know what we know. What Name Zola? I'm looking at bobby and bobby stopped. Do what name I started doing doing all these little flakes and checks and run the legs and I do like that. That's not what made you create whom you agree Guy Hollands during rain though Holland island just sticks. It DOES NOT ENJOY THE GAME. And you stick on a bucket. Normally from defenders point of view. You're playing against the right. That's striker is a penalty box drake. And what isn't going to pick the ball up four yards and crush which I don't have to worry too much about that are is not came to play an unintended closing them down. But he's not very sharp and the box this. That's boy I say. Boy that's boy does both sides of the game plus the five normally apply against a player. Has Maybe quick or you play against a player. Who's maybe not as mobile as physical. He he's GonNa he's GonNa all the physicality of the old fashioned number nine but he's got the speed of Australia. Her plays off the guy and we saw that and the the one that you went through on goal in the second half. He's just from an lipped for all the well in the world that the goalkeeper was going to get at least a yacht the two in front of him and he still managed to get through in an almost tapped goalkeeper until two given a penalty. Kick away on the men's performance from a young man. Who as by the way only GONNA get better? Who Strong's this Guy Gooby? I'm GonNa see that you may not remember it. Used to be a guy called now and who came on the scene as in one thousand nine hundred and it was a big skinny gangly guy and when you have these bones right say about twelve months eighteen months later. I remember them a nearly broke for. This is just going hunting the island. He's only going to get quick stronger and faster and it's scary to think. How big strong guy? Ob Gab is why we love it and that's why we love watching this sport because when you someone like this come from nowhere but I have so much expectation around him and then he lives up to it. It's always one about. I mean you corrected yourself there when you said nowhere with all due respect if you go back twelve months Holland was was eighteen years old. But you know there were other. Juniors year olds that we were talking about. He was not one of them. You know he just arrived at Salzburg was coming off the bench picking spots. There's no question that all the big clubs have known who he is for very long time and he's been plugged into all the networks but but it did seem that he'd somehow slightly gone off the radar and certainly the general public didn't know he was and now they know. The beast is risen. It's absolutely terrifying. What he does and I think the one thing I am sure Borussia Dortmund Sports Science People Holland himself and his dad will all be looking at. This is going to be his physical development as he continues. What kind of of a of a player is going to be. I mean you want him to get stronger but you want him to maintain his pace. Sometimes it can be a bit of zero sum game. How do you manage that when you've got you've got such a phenomenal athlete? Above all else let. Let's recap Britiah Dortmund. Here you know with the result might be an another night minis team at one point in the game two one thousand nine hundred seventeen years old and cloudy arena. Some rain came to provide the assistance of coasties bench for seventeen years old against Patterson and the NOCCO stages when the game still in the balance is incredibly satisfying for cloak to do an incredibly satisfying for manager of your club to have the stomach to these kids in particularly young Young Reno to come off the bench seventeen and is fazon chose performance again You know I wouldn't say I think call the wrong world but fails is the ability really and you don't WanNa be he's going to. He's going to go for over one hundred million not about but boy could he be the match winner in Paris and we've got. We ended up too much time. I want to talk about G. How would you sum up their performance today? Disappoint looked a little disjointed shape. It was basically can embark peo- name produce something you know that that can only walk so many times to go through the whole tournament unity. You need to be together as a team. And they don't look together as a team bought you know what as good as Borussia whereas great a one as there's only one goal. Let's be frank the goal. The goal was a giveaway right. Let's be Frank Kubota giveaway. Because they had it got through academia and he'll be three defenders. You should never go in there. And they paid the penalty but normally we say right great result. Ps G not too by the way. Go Go back to Paris. But we know how the last couple of years. Yes we know the buckling of this team and we know we know dormant. I've gone through initiatives defensively but concrete. Cianci's on I think makes for a great game. Nova ratty either gap. Both of them will be suspended for that game after bookings today making a strange noise that when Craig was talking it was oh no I just think these loss based on his performance today is really really big one. In fact I know hold on was or Sancho where the main event with some Bobby Neymar. But that midfield battle I saw between emory Sean. Who really was really was exceptional and variety. I thought was a wonderful side dish to to the main course right then. He's fruit gap. Well I'M GONNA go with Barry Mann there. Do I expect a big performance? I expect to shut people up. Don't WanNa hear about the last three years and how they should have gone through and they were unlucky and the referee and Blah Blah Blah. Enough of that. I'm going to say Pakistan's your man proved me wrong. Pse really a one. No win at home against Russia. Don't mean person through on tonight's performance of changed. Now I'm going I'm GonNa say with Holland's and not for me Sanjay. I'm going to go for a short Dortmund. Yeah it's to be one of the second in front so just reminder. We always stay late to answer your questions feel free to tweet. Us AT ESPN APP. See you can catch extra time over on our youtube. Cham- Champions League continues tomorrow. Spurs taking on Livestock Spurs. Go into the tie as the underdog sixty five according to the puck bounce the quarter finals of bad news today for Josie Marino already struggling with injury saw now for it looks like the rest of the season with a fractured arm. Live legitimate favorites for Ukraine. Yeah I think so. I mean it was a little bit slow after the break for them but certainly picked up a little taught them and we can see the sun is a great game very open but I keep bringing same thing. It's autumn and particularly. There's no focal point out front with no hold up and walk off of probably going to be Lucas. More up there as that. Too often of seen sprawls under the impression it's just the ball and they've given possession to Tim's but quite easily hence development was quite open. Now you did not delight Jake and my opinion with the players. They've caught that's that's going to be big trouble. Fulham even taught him home so I'm struggling to see over. The two games host Tottenham said in its current format goes through Spurs. Of course not the only side in these tie with players missing life sick with significant members scored not in. Yeah no question about it Starting for me the biggest one of all Diet Open. Ikano one of the best centrebacks in the world. In my opinion he suspended for the for the first leg also other alternatives tobacco. Turn to like like like Willie Benjamin out for a long time Tyler Adams of course also out in in midfield so Nago Zeman himself is is pretty stretched at least for this for this first leg. And that's GonNa make for an interesting encounter what sort of encountering expects instead. I think this is going to be. Listen Lake. She gets out in the good position in abundance Lita. They probably should've beaten by on recently but they're not getting the results. The need cash for Tottenham as bad as you think have been are getting resolved and ended the day. That's what it's all a boat you know you can play as well as you want and still were always bothers you want one. That's exactly what taught moving doing saying I'm going to go seek because if team will Vanna Listen? I think I think if you switch team Avella taught them said that would make them for me favored. Guess what he's putting Lacey so I'll go over the two games gap. He got very close. I think over the two games. I'm going to lead. Lean Leipzig just simply because Leipzig also have the individuals of Verner? But also possibly Danny almo- if they find the right role for him to go and break down a low block craig. I'm just leaning towards Leipzig over the two legs just reminded plenty of content over on our ESPN AFC YouTube channel. You can check it out and law. You'll their shots take a look at best the week. Tomorrow Sees Atalanta sakonnet Valencia. We've got thirty seconds left guys. Tell us about this game or you should watch this game. Because it's it's a real contrast in style between lattices Valencia. That's had an up and down season after he took over from my selen-selena but they do have some tremendous individuals up against not that I'm decide who score goals tons of the one of the highest scoring teams in Europe. Some real special talents. Papa Gomez Yosef illegit. It's always fun. To Watch Atlanta. You will be entertained. Didn't mention the lose. Lots of goals. Steve Eight come on. We're trying to be nice. Ryan SORTA got Valencia fans. That's Alana goal so that's voice. Thank you very much. Hopefully more Champions League drama tomorrow until then goodbye. Walgreens delays addition of extra time Stevie says Speedy Gonzales and other speakers in las line. Yep same place phone apart. I'm going to be going home different way. Tonight in the dark was way way invoice. God we've waited more than two months for the Champions League. Knockout stages widely games kickoff. The same time question but kind of the way that they've always done it and it's always been now I know in the group stages This year they spread because they've always done. It doesn't make it the right thing to do that well. They spread them out in in in the group stages because they are teams from from Eastern Europe and for Greece. And so it's it's less of an issue with them to have them kickoff in the earlier time slot in other words a seven o'clock central European time but the simple fact of the matter is the vast majority of viewers are the ones and broadcasters who pay a lot of money for them are in central Europe. And if you're in central Europe a seven o'clock kick-off is simply not good for you because people are coming back from work because you can't have The build up to it. And because you don't have the same gap between there and the next game and bad for ratings and for business but with four hours of Primetime Salka not sell batts than just the two hours so if you had that seven to eleven slots then surely you could still make the same amount of money. Not Really No. Because it's not seven to eleven. If nobody's watching at seven o'clock people Shane. They're not there because they're coming back from work. I mean what kind of logic is that and I mean honestly like you had your games in Madrid and an endorsement today right. Both those games one of those games would have to kick off at seven o'clock. People have jobs in those countries. They have commitments. They have to eat dinner. You don't you what you start your your pre game buildup at half past. Six people aren't home to watch that and so it's much more of an event if the game kicks off as has been at nine o'clock in central Europe but obviously it's seven o'clock kick-off would be even worse if you happen to be in England or the British isles where which is actually I think has the highest or spends the most on champions ATV rights. Because you know six o'clock literally nobody's there to watch it except for the unemployed and old people and kids you and I was thinking about it exactly if not made much of an argument. What good were you you away for who you argue. We've just been slapped by God. That's it but it's way imagine over here the NFL playoffs being on at the same time. It doesn't make any sense. He's playing on Sunday and Saturday work on weekends. It seems very strange. The Pinnacle matches our sport play. Time doesn't make any sense weekends. Gobs told you crashes to questions but for both of the filter oil field just doesn't make any sense at least twice while Euro which is because the way because nobody will watch. That's why you're saying well the cowboys home. What does that mean people? See Me Myself. Typical of them. I must admit watching games at once as an ideal of course there is no no this is frustrating and who have the most disappointing performance live. Ps G love appeal. Absolutely absolutely I mean it is shock the British document actually beat. Pse It's not shock surprises. Maybe not show to short-lived let you be liveable settling. The Monitor's well deserved newbery was taking money off on the right decision when he's clearly the spot was a tank while. I'm pretty certain don't hold us. I'M GONNA guess to come off before he gets sent off it already. A yellow the smash some in the bucket had unintentionally but still in the back of the head and the referee. How giving them another yellow complain too much I think now it was precaution than Anna. Gav Is Liverpool really that good or is the premier league this season in Europe. Livable struggle a lot. Also the also the reigning European champion so struggle. There obviously relatively soon three questions I just. Did you ask the Question Joe? I stand on Your Own Book Dan Since Twenty Eighteen Liverpool. I've lost to Madrid Barcelona Napoli Wolves Manchester City. And if you WANNA be a real patent about it Aston Villa in the League Cup but of course that was Liverpool's kids that's at six losses since two thousand eighteen since November twenty eighteen. If I'm not mistaken that's just absurd. Yes there are very very very good team. And it's as simple as that. You should a phrase that quick question definitely should have said all the current European champions from two thousand nine and the two thousand eighteen runners-up really bought Europe. How you could I call it the questions you know question and went all the poed and I'm not here to table reads you get you get robotic. That's all I'm just a couple could jump off the roof it. Espn would you do it? That's all he'll such a company man that saints. Hey there's been some incidents just needs to come. I Agree I WANNA did Paul Selena miss out on signing Holland from me. Twenty million euros in the January Transfer Window Gab. Okay courteous it's twenty million euros in theory. It's not really twenty million euros because there was a lot of commission paid on top of that anywhere between depending who you talk to. Probably Between Fifteen and twenty five million. I've been told just today. Actually that it was eighteen million. So that's thirty eight million a little bit more money than that. On top of that you had to agree to to to the contract and to his terms which. I'm over by applause on top of that Holland and his dad made it very clear that they wanted. They didn't want to go to a massive club straightaway they wanted with no disrespect to Dortmund. He didn't want to make the leap to a Barcelo Manchester United. They wanted to go to a club where he could continue growing and developing and he felt that Borussia Dortmund were that club partly for the track record with with young players. They got some wrong to over the years. But also because the pressure I think involved in playing for For Borussia Dortmund with Eddie kind of disrespect. Is it the same as the pressure involved in playing for Barcelona around Madrid or united or or buying Munich? It's simply not you. Did you play this this? This is much. My city differently when Roy Keane funny sees. Yep Yep but it's a smart decision. Gop said his club with track record playing playing bring Lawson Jaden Sancho g arena now seventeen. It's just it's just a smart move around. Go somewhere you're going to get. You're going to get game time by the way if you appraise has had we done less than two months after move. Yeah I wonder. I wonder how a lot a lot that isn't in Craig Morris. Tv Won't be we will. Of course be looking back at Spurs against Leipzig plus other game between Atalanta and Valencia. You're going to ask you know I'm just going to read the question so I do. Make up the questions on the pavement.

These new chairs alley Moreno is here as well. Shocker his lung, rock, honing son will be joining us in other areas outside when Lee, of course, which was the venue for Spurs and that three nail victory over Borussia Dortmund. It was a tight first half. Not really low happened spas came flying out tramps in these second off just woman the bright. We saw naked one now then late on goals from baton on your say, but very much in the driving seat going in that second leg in Germany has much wealth. Right. So yeah. Hopefully, fantastic. And some and some ways it reminded me of yesterday kind of above average first half and then one off to bundle zone. It was PS G. And today it was taught them. You know, we we've spent we've talked about a manager a law in marisha, Sarah. And how stubborn these been we've seen the complete opposite here from Portugal. You know teams. I think has changed fully sake of changing it too many times. Biko it created and sailor went up three with the personnel. The hod so that it could allow other players for the Fogarty entity, possessions pushy on vitamins and the left wing position. He was much much for them in terms of the cross and the goal is called on the walkie that are not lifetime site allowed to play behind the front tuition. That would always a threat, but it was surprised by Dortmund with the way they set up and by the tempests played them in doesn't play a league games zamba. And then you've got you plan a front for the away from home. That's an attack information struggling defensively. She in one side, you go and you sign show and the other thoughts of talk and plans to go away from home when you've got problems at other. Rain and a very good game and son Joe who's been brilliant settling did not have a good game. Until what was the key Spurs in that second half to Queen Craig's raise what where do they find? After Ben is where in particular with a dominant weight helps that one minute in dorm and turns the ball over. How key me does. And now you put yourself in a position where you can score a goal the way that song did. And I think that free Spurs to play in a different way also thought that they recognize that. Okay. Whistle and Delaney are pressuring us in the middle. We're going to skip that we're going to try to stretch them over the top and the movement then from him in song was very important for Spurs. Once you're able to then bypass that initial pressure. And then you stretch, then you're playing one once against guys to your point that defensively have had all sorts of issues. Let's not forget that doorman has allowed over the last three games nine goals nine goals. So it tells you that this is a team that is struggling defensively and those one v one positions are not very good for them. So hockey made a mistake in the first goal then in the second goal, Tom again and again. An advanced position. I keep thinking about I'm going to go on the attack, dude. No, it's Champions League. Your Wembley, your first priority should be to defend well, and makes you make sure that you keep at one nothing. I thought that individually they were performances what Spurs that were very good. And in the second half Dortmund fell into the trap or trying to catch up Spurs instead of saying, you know, what we'll take the one nothing because one nothing not that bad three nothing is over. But you look what does well is the peace from the back, but the trouble when things are greet for them. They can hurt you a meal that you badly when they're slightly off. You can you can make mistakes. And that's what you show from spruce and the second. I also think as Craig point to note that change a full Megyn allowed Vitton in that. When he does get up that he doesn't have to chase back immediately that they can pressure bore up. And when they do retire Lincoln St. and and see what comes up it. That's what brought the first. That's what brought the second and give them. The again that dope meant just slightly off with their passing time. Times you make you make the most of it. It's Kifah Spurs as well that they continue to be tight at the back. Again. This is the Dortmund side that on top of the Bundesliga by accident, the kind who'd you, but they don't have to throw out Shiva tongue them ten Ben pants very excited violence. Okay. We're talking. What's excellent? But you'll talk to make the point that if you are voice a, and you're looking ever tongue in playing a wingback, and you have gave on scientist down that you're thinking, this is an area that we can expose we can take tongue into a wide area. Now, it's one be one. We can expose him. We can force hint to defend instead, it was for talking force and everybody else to defend that's pathetic, supposedly in the first half. Yeah. A couple of times that right? Hindsight talking. But in the second half. No, no, let's go out to Wembley, shall we? Enjoy rap on Exxon. Of course, obviously the game raff, let's kick off show. Eight from Bruce dormant perspective. What went wrong? I was reminded watching this of something that's been Ericson used to say the England manager at the time used to always come up often with that line first half. Good second half. Nuts are good and. Stay in because of course, completely collapsed. And the reason why that happened is because I realized this team on the ball really good creating problems for us in our own half. Let's give them the time. Let's just play twenty meters. Higher up the pitch. Squeeze the space. They don't really have anyone up front to run behind us. Cut says not quick enough and dope -ment through their own fault. And bitter pushing from Spurs from the offset gave the ball away Hakimi to terrible mistakes. And of course, compounded by shmelts as awful attempt to have the ball for the free nil. And suddenly you don't find you don't even understand why lost that game for now. Going on the first half, but domain really caved in in the second. Raff continuing this, obviously from Spurs perspective. They get everything right in the second half. Yet. It got another things. Right. I mean, I didn't have a great game. I think objectively a lot of things didn't work for them. This was a game between two teams with problems Spurs dealt with their own problems much better than dormant Dortmund did okay to certain extent when it came to the really important heiress to the boxes both their own and your position that didn't quite have the same the right solution Spurs food a bit of extra experience a bit of stronger mentality. I think as well had it and that made the difference. And of course, just pushing a little bit further exposing the brittleness at the heart of the dolphin defence this dope unpack four that never played together before that's been moving people around centrebacks fullbacks changing positions. No one really quite happy where they were and Kimia having enough night. And the result was a game that's probably beyond celebration on forty from the German league leaders that an off night and airs, and he has actually left block. And he's. It's been playing great. So I wouldn't expect him to be as good going forward from that possession is Ali we saying I would say I expect him to be switched on offensively. The post because that's his job bread and butter to the point RAF was talking about about both teams had problems clearly documents problems at the buck Veda address, those well enough clearly taught them gestures were on strike and department. No cane or the the the fighting felt no cane, no Ali so credit. You know, what does he do? He wants to get up on it wants to get more and suddenly team. So how does he go in the best possible way? Well, they can play by four and play player diamond in midfield and still Eric's and then behind but that's gonna leave him a little bit shore in the middle of the park. So he goes with the bike for the the the way the way they sent a box to get forward. The reading box push on. And you've got the extra because you've still people and the mentally parks. They don't leave themselves but yet keep Ericsson behind the front two. So he go to absolutely spot on tonight row. Does this mean for Dolan going forward with regards to that domestic campaign, obviously, if you were to silver lining on this is is very unlikely? They'll get the win back in Germany enough to see them through saying concentrate on their bonus. They all is there an argument to say that this could could trigger a bit of a compatriot Latian. I don't think there's a silver lining because, you know, barring American in the second leg dope and have now been knocked out of two Cup competitions in the space of ten days into cop against Fedor Bremen at home here. I think the game tie is all about over. And in the Bundesliga, they dropped a point a couple of points after being up against often. I'm so, you know, if you're worried about the wobble, that's all this is not a good time of having it and especially conceding nine goals in three games. It's not great. I think still the lead at the top is just about comfortable enough for them. Not to now panic and completely lose their way. But this is kind of result that I think just will make everyone just wonder, you know. How good are. We really why we made this mistakes. Nothing. You have to ask some questions about who sinned father as well. Because when put your Tina realized things weren't working out in the first half he made a couple of changes, not really big one subtle ones. But made a big difference. Father kind of just waited and waited and waited made very late substitutions and didn't really help his team who were struggling out there. So I think just another sort of smallish point to this. But one that adds to the sense dope. And really didn't didn't do themselves Justice here tonight. Of course that derogatory term that we use for Hotspur on occasion. I they give you hope and then say it away now all on this occasion, showing that yourself. No. I just don't see that happening on. Yes. Do have that history. Don't look too far back to to realize that. But I thought as as ski we've been about Bruce Dortmund, I think the time you have to look at what spruce it. I didn't particularly the back where I thought the. Code with Dortmund's peace and their threat. All good things that we've been seeing about over the last few months didn't really trouble Spurs all that much. Yes. No. They had a couple of opportunities pulisic, maybe could have done better. But I feel spruce cooped with what they had what everything don't mean through them. I spent them to go and do exactly that for ninety minutes an endorsement just three three goals is a hell of a start the felt well, they'll know rental banks had two weeks. You could've you could seen a bit nervous. But three new not know, and the other is you talk about Dortmund unnecessary. Wobble domestically over that's huge result the going against and that's when you allow them plays, Julie vehicle and McCoy's to combine that's a big bonus for them. But that's when you let scored the top of the this. They got the GOP is not the no look the Champions League. So he will land in the law, but what he's gone and contrast to what Tinos going through, you know, recently they were completely the title race. The two Cup competitions. We were all questioned them because nobody wanted to criticize them and all of. Sudden you know, that on the coattails of mindset and lever pill, it's unlikely but the hang in picked up some wins again domestically and the Premier League and the best result of the season. Maybe not the best performance, but the best result of this season. And a big part of that has been individual performances like the one that humane song continues to put out because it would have been easy as it was very easy for us to say, well, no Harry came for the next month. What is going to happen with I probably not so good. And at the beginning. It wasn't so good human. Something comes back. He's playing he's playing well scoring goals and gives them move some gives some variety in the attack gives them speed and ability to stretch the field he can play underneath you can play in behind. And then he gives you goals on productivity. Why else? Could you ask for homing? I don't I don't think you can underestimate or overstate how important his presence and his performances have been for Spurs to continue to win games where perhaps it would have been easy to say. You know, what we have all sorts of excuses. Not to win games. He has provided that spark we'll say thank you to raff as we just remind you that. SPNFZ's every day on a postcard. You can download the version of the plus shack. There's plenty of your opponents. Oh, okay. Thank you very much. Let's consider the secret life of the innermost nesting doll living most of her life in the dark inside the other nesting dolls. He has plenty of time to think if we could sadly, she has no brain, however when most nesting dole. Here's the Geico not only saves people money, but also has been providing great service for over seventy five years. She thinks it's obvious. You should switch because. Yes. Switching to gyco is a no brainer pity in a most nesting doll and her lot in life. Now, these are the scenes outside ram with trades hotel. I'm Saddam at three o'clock this morning. Nice. The fans on fire lovely. Slam lovely time. You have any of that time. It didn't quite have the desire to fakes round Madrid with a two one win. But boy with eight to may to work hard for it. Benza Amal would open the schooling around which I would get the equalizer sensor coming off the bench again that key second go Ramage rid. But boy were they made to fight hard for that victory. Do you know? As a lot closer game than I thought it was going to be when you're when you're putting around Madrid, and you to a huge underdog and you're getting almost twenty decent efforts on Real Madrid's goal. Then I think that's telling the story. So. The two away goals key Novus to her that played is key in terms of going through. I think as much as picked up for them domestically. I think defensively or opportunities and eleven can average teams at vest level that still a worry. Yeah. It's concerning for ram, you'll take the resolve. And I think the difference between the two clubs is the fact that whenever round created their opportunities cutting Vincent my who's heart as anybody else in Europe. He's putting those opportunities away. Whereas I actually early on in the game. They get chances touted Asya whoever it may be they get those chances you have to put them away against Real Madrid. Those are the thing about Real Madrid is yes defensively issues. And if Steve Nicol we're sitting here, and he would have seen what was doing in this game. It was just responsible defending. And some of them stakes is things that you don't expect from komo's so much. So he gets a yellow car who will miss next match for me Real Madrid. There's still problems. There's no question it's a flawed team. But this is seemingly what they do. And now now at this stage of the season is when they turn this performance. They don't look so good that they're not convincing. But it's a win. And it's two away goals. And this means that they're probably gonna. Vance into into the next round of this competition, and he gets them just enough chance and just enough opportunity for them to continue to improve towards the lighter stages. Still for me is not a great ravage you come up against. I I actually and you knew how open in their diversity and this played right into Real Madrid. Strength. Look good going forward create chances Benz finish of confidence. But then huge problems on the back. And as they go slightly deeper this competition think readmitted will continue to have a lot of problems or that being said you look at the results in the league and the weekend, and it suggests maybe something different. I think so Larry still has a lot of problems with the side. They not really sure who they are what they're going to do. But for right now get what we saw from three or four months ago, you take this. We talked a lot about Imbaba yesterday. A couple years, of course, behind him Venetia junior's been great since he's come in and exciting talent looks completely unfazed by the pressure of playing around with. I'm surprised the too long. I mean, I know he's a young guy surprised it took us long to get as much game. So it came here to the states with Real Madrid in the summer. An okay, it was the two of them, and it was friendly. But he was he was a bulk tricks. I was looking up and thanking here's a guy that's coming from Flamengo for like four million bucks or wherever as on a combat in a sense. Where is no fear on? Maybe it was the right thing. Just leave him be for. But he's not finding these feet. And the more game teams gets particularly that's level. We all and then more experienced the he's going to get the ability carbon giving him to say, no. No, see another wall. Best of the games. Either. More talk about what happened in today's Champions League matches. I've on extra time be show to join us. Companies. They can quote the appetizer. The main course as the euro put that is or. Gains. These the ones that stand out by borrow some awesome gallatin thrive in thinking severe Celtic Valencia zero against Napoli record against in some Alon plus Mamo against Chelsea. And I suppose normally it's not a game worth addressing. But considering what's been going on? Chelsea of lanes is will be on this game ready. Chelsea can only. What they're in a no win situation. Alma believe that was one at least one headline in the UK and one year capability today that was mentioned in Dan, really, no. He's been mentioned to you a few club yet because he's off to the Real Madrid successful kind of understandable because the moment murmurings are already there unless he's dug himself a hole here. Sorry in the last few weeks with these comments with with the team's performance arsenal. Then comments off the back of then horrendous performance at Bournemouth, and the even wars performance at mindset, and then just plays the same way all the time out talking about. But he's had enough possession wheel the trigger can be pulled after any defeat our walk home attention. It's way. Didn't you? Beat mama has always Alamo. You lose tomorrow. That's. Well, I can tell you that the better option is you beat bound shawl say, well, you're supposed to be. But the truth of the matter is they don't even want to mess around with the possibility of what that other reaction would be I expect and it's hard to say this about Chelsea because you don't know what to expect from this team. And what what version of this team is going to show up? But I expect them after you get your backside handed to you the way that they were and humiliated, whether they were against not just to city that if this guys are true professionals and through very talented players that they would show ks that in this competition is the next game is the next opportunity for you to say something about yourself never mind the manager anymore about yourself individually. Can you put together a performance, and then make that as a group you do that you should be better than if you don't then we'll be talking about them in the not most positive manner the truth? I don't think this game does anything for Josie. Listen the are supposed. Three by my more team. That are struggling domestically that still on there. They went to bre- chessy kind of beat mom. Oh, sorry needs to leave Monday morning that that aside regardless of what you do and again. Do you know what they today pack. I'm not gonna stop anything back. That's. You know, you'd be my taking with his tactics. Bold is complicated. You've got big games on your on your horizon. That's where you will be judged on the thing. That's where the players will still be feeling nervous both about their own their own performances and the and their own confidence. And what this minds is to see as he continues to become more, more and more. Unpredictable. It's as difficult situation for those players to be an especially some of those who already have one eye on the predictable information protective. The, you know, pull the suddenly even more power to jokes because of the champion spa. And he could be sailing. Not he's talking to these because you say the talk to him, but he could be selling these owners to keep your job. Yes. Let's we'll know. We'll talk for racia- and we can win this year. Police we will get Champions League football next year. So you can sail out to the then that works the other way if you slip up and the owner, there's another one. We qualify United. We'll take and as falling away in the league. So. As part of importance now that's police because as avenue for and they should be one of the favorites. The absolutely should favorites to witness call attention. So the shipper Noyce Kasese me, just briefly on awesome. Obviously, you could say the same again for them with getting into the Champions League. Good good possibility. No Zona squad that travelled. These are massive problem for us though. Isn't it in the sense that he's going to be there for a long time? They've just given this massive contract. Azazel? There's no way it's going to be resolved unless you can find somebody who's going to pay his wages and take them off your good luck. Yeah. That's the thing. Don't say we didn't say they become a huge headache for for for also for Emory and some of the shows you lucky longtime thing can football clubs. I mean, it's just crazy with. I don't really want the guy in my team because I want to move onto a different way played. But of course, we discussing those Europa league games on the next addition show Julianne Laurent will be here to go about pants. As well as the Champions League that was obviously championship matches as well today. Let's say through the key results Brentford with a one no way over Aston Villa? Meanwhile, it's which town in real trouble. At the moment, you want one joy against I'll be at night. Starting light bouncing back over the to win again. Swansea. Big surprise fresh than beating Norwich state see by goals. One bulls Canaries seem flying of light. Meanwhile, police struggles continue Vara they lost one against Sheffield United Goethe's between weakened and I mean while reading to Blackburn Rovers ones, but just saying look at what all that means lead. United to the top of the championship of the victory. One point pair of Norwich City future. United great two thousand nine hundred ninety two now remain in third. Westbound full Bristol City Middlesbrough make the other pile places. Nope. Needs to do your job for you shock. I imagined. None of those championship teams will be in your power rankings. Hope not swaying. Are we're gonna do things haven't played. Then you go like boss Luna who drew PSV Napoli drawing. Let me tell you what he's talking about. Well, tomorrow how exciting confide. Welcome in extra-time, Emmett Smith, the check right. You're right. About. Oh, it's the knees. I put me, oh, that's not good on the Benny about you. Two bucks. Smokes. Genesis down on us. What he chills? What's wrong with that? We can see your legs. We'll see issue. Well, because when I put them on the thing pushes up the 'cause legs are quite low. Off to put my. Done. I'm up to two. Say that they're going to be Moreno to continue to pick against. But as long as possible, please. Sure gladly do. So the alley curse. However, however, be very careful Spurs you continue to play this. Well, there may be the off chance that I may pick. You know, what happens when that what about Stevie today say he could C Span's getting this done industrial Wembley where where is the Howard show? If I mean that kind of prediction, I would just show him. Now, he's still trying to work. If I did text takes. Wanted to have his this is what he does when he changed. The changing diapers. He still is printed instructions out case may have sheds the that's the first. Yeah. Well. Actually off to as massive result. And that recent good form in the league to Spurs have a better chance. Winning the champions or the primarily. But let's let's. I think it's the fact by. No, no lying. They're not winning to win two windy prema- league. They'd have to overcome city and Liverpool to win the Chinese league. Petrova comes city Liverpool. Readmitted Boston not keep going on three three teams. But still seem to teams that they have the question. My answer is no. That's the question. I have a better chance of winning the previously that that's my. And it's a very small meaning school chance of that. Yet. This hugely important. Off the streets. And now you're on. Primarily. Bye bye. It's paci. No the best manager in the Premier League. No best.

Pandemonium at Stamford Bridge

"Welcome insulate sedition. ESPN DOWN Thomas. From Stevie Nikko and Craig I would also joined by Franklin birth. A dramatic day. In the Champions League will stop at Stamford Bridge finished Chelsea for I x four lacks for four one up up to fifty five minutes but then they had two men sent off Chelsea capitalize on that came back to make it four four. Couldn't and get the winning goal which means this is so close Chelsea. I asked him Valencia off the van. Full well one win over little all on seven points. We're talking about the significant Mitha of those results and who will go through in a moment but let's focus on the game is this is Berlin. Wasn't what a match that was the fantasy game Thank you to all the players know they are watching. Yeah sure sure. I'm sure too so I I enjoy criticize sir. Like two weeks ago interrogation at one because I thought it was very very slow. I think when you give a reason when pace to a game when you give everything that you have have and try to give your best you that kind of result where I you have to say. Well done in the first half to to the X. Player the dominated Chelsea very well scoring four goals in the first half we didn't see Chelsea was almost masterclass and re android that but there is a turning point. Of course we the two red cards after but just he studied to play better in the second. Half and tried to pressure is a little bit more. d- The Team so I enjoy from the first second to the last one and a controversial aspect of the of certain actions but I really think that it was a game at. I want to watch every time that I watched the Champions League because I want to have died kind of emotion from the neutral point of view. It's exactly the sort of game you hope for in their Champions League. It's what we got both teams score goals. But there's frank mention the defining moment really in this game. Those two red cards odds within twenty seconds yet will blend can have no issues may argue that it was not just off the ball got black with his feet then tried to challenge. Abraham Romm was clearly second-best and getting their second yellow cow but in the same move the ball hits Veldman in the arm and this is where this is where I and he gets a second yellow count on of the penalty scored Gino Second Penalty. But this is what are the key the whole Han bowl controversy. If you want to call it across the ball just gone through the roof because nobody knows what anymore stevie resided we'll watch. It was a penalty I could see can giving us a panel a frustrated because because his arm leslie talked Anti Sade so what Silhouette Silhouette arms here wade out. An issue was done. Obama Body a mosque Masella question. We're else apart from dot. We hate this apart from this so I just don't know where you an arm. I what we saw adamant Steve of everyone when we watch it together. Just because when you when you look at the rules if you make your silhouette beggar and that's where the confusion Uson Stars so whereas far distances we're talking about so against so then you've the rule but you've also made a rule that subjective so what's the point and of course the we he proves his head so I think we've suggested the refereed but he's actually got his arm position and trying to get the win and he's given a penalties again. It's clear as mud but considering what the rule is the way it's written fingers penalty. At first I was with creek right arm down by his side but there seems to be a little something a little leaning with the left arm. That is far enough. I'm going to say carefully far enough away from his body and I think the most damning evidence stevie juice alluded to the ball hits the arm and then swings swings back. And if you're the referee you see that then it's very difficult not to make the call and it certainly no one of those goals and somehow you say it's not clear and obvious and this and that and the other are you make that call. He saw it. He sold the armed flying away and from then on. It was very difficult for eye exam and to complain and to actually try to change the so. What do you think Frank? What I think it's it's well of course because I was a former player before we think that I'm I'm neutral but I I think it was fair as a CV? Said I sees. I'm going a little bit away from his body before the ball. She's cheese his arm and the and after he tries to hide good is on meaning. He knows that he's armies in the wrong position so I think it's it's it's a fair coal like it. It was a fair call on the labral Ni when the last week with US called and the the goal was cancelled. It's it's a new rule. I don't think he's clear enough off for everybody but it is what it is and I think it was an annual. It is an end bowl. It's a penalty yellow counting as well. Yeah yeah well well not really. Because once he and the reveries main he's deemed deemed. There's a movement of the arm. So there's an an has made it as an intention independence once he's done is he's given the the argument. But I'm just arguing over as a generalization. The another free might not give an for other pundits five other concern and debate and argue because all we're hearing nowadays from from all different leagues in from UEFA as wanting like primarily with virus high bar now of silhouettes and all this nonsense on since it's just great is. Is this a good result. The Chelsea wages wages falling down. Do you think brilliant but for the last twenty minutes. You're planning against nine men. Listen if you're Chelsea your delated together point This game no when you look back and see how how the game went right. The we played in the foster off. Then you would be absolutely delighted. Listen Tommy Braham the Cutler Great John's we hear those he could have won the game fall off the end. The when you look when you look at the big picture this is a good point. Consider and so will I act- I actually delighted with it as well because once the game changing the madder better than I did and they were hanging on nine men and they get out of there with a point. That's okay we can we can take a breather here the rest of the qualifying state. What I would say about Iot is that? And this is the same mistake that they made against Spurs in the semifinals of the Champions League last year. I know there are pretty to watch. And I know they can be open. And they can pass around. Laura there are times there are times when you feel momentum getting away from you and again then maybe you do something different that you are a little bit more practical pragmatic I know. We appreciate the the fact that I play. And they don't change the way they play. Well maybe there are times in which you gotTa have some sort of flexibility to where you clear the ball we clear lines we get our players for and now we're gonNA defend from better positions. They did not do that. Chelsea got on top of that eventually they call me the difference and from then on he was hanging on and that's where the coach has stepped right. You've got nine man against the living and you're going to try and be clever and play. Oh I stone coach get a hold of them and see everybody up and we. We play the game the other end. We discussed this group having we about whether or not Chelsea going to get through as confident. How can you lose when you lose you lose four goes home? You know away as the next game right and so I think on listen. The one think of Chelsea the way they play if the opposition. Good with the ball. I exile and Valencia. Good technically as well. Then you've got a chance against Chelsea. That's that's my buddy. I'm not scared that Chelsea are going to go and freeze. They'll go play. They'll go and do they. Do they take the chances or not. And Keep Potato by DOC Chelsea game for a thank you to squads Valencia and Chelsea Chelsea are the best site the play the way. The money's the game with the hall into Phnom Saddam Against. I asked whether they were more of a counterattack and team using the pace whether it'd be Mesa Mount on which I think that certain them in Spain so I think just josh thanks. We'll go through. Accent Chelsea through Valencia playing well enough even from behind. It's it's a flawed team. Another Spanish team playing well at the moment Barcelona remember they lost against the van. Take three one at the weekend. They could only manage a nil. Nil Jaw Against Slavia lobby. Approx at the camp now this is a sign of yet to register a win in the group stages. What's going wrong with Boston? Well there's a lot going wrong. We bought US along but clearly deep deep. If you were watching the game today there is a nervous environment going on in that stadium. There is a feeling about the players that you can send. The fans are waiting for something to happen to just go crazy. Just go boo everybody because clearly that disconnect that is where and the players it's in it's evident to see when I watched. I WANNA play right now. The one thing that comes to mind to me they look like Tina and that's not compliment. Yeah they look like got hint Dina Messy. They look like a team that is disconnected disorganized stretch all over the place. There is no real semblance of organization through the midfield and they're just waiting for them to do something and if he doesn't pull it off. It's not happening. That hasn't worked for us. And it's not gonNA work for Barcelona. They have to resolve a lot of issues issues. But more importantly the organization on the team in the midfield. There is no midfielder Taco. When you talk about Slavia Prague whenever they won the ball they're going to connor and he was five three? If lower prior- had better players players some attack this would have been a different result. Frank do have the same concerns about Barcelona. Yes yes a little bit yeah I. I wasn't pleased with the way they played. I was talking before the game at Jack Chelsea. That would just that pace makes the difference. It was so slow. Well the first half off was quite okay but I was with the way that private play because they played defense of course but they were trying to defend going forward pretty high on the on the field l. but as I said if MRI doesn't do anything it's like nothing's going to happen. That maybe in consciously the other player like Grays Man Damn Bilas. Well they look for me because they have to serve the king which maybe is not even macy's fault maybe message astle does those ball he's talking to guy are forced to give him the ball for him in order for him to to to make the difference so I didn't like the way they played. I think it wasn't the right way to play if they want to. Have a change in the chimpanzee this year I think something is missing Akon really point. That's where where is the problem but the problem is sorry but but there is a problem and I don't think I can see the future champion. The chimpanzee this year when she bustling playing this way for some of the other teams I would be feeling quite Italy. As early. BOFFA was love. Apu concetti bothered. There are no say ever defensive issues. PSG maybe events they pick up a head of steam because we have got a great squad squad but we know they haven't played particularly well. Follows them if there's no change in Real Madrid at our bus alone up and there's no suggestion there's going to be under both managers. I think I'd be feeling quite good about shares again. John is definitely but of course. It looks. Looks like that'd be fine. They will get through this group as we'll Borussia Dortmund. After huge wind today home against into Milan they were too l.. Down however a second half comebacks the German side take all three points. This is so weird because into looking great and then all of a sudden they can see that opening go and you just saw. Wow you know for for such expedience bike lane into Gaza as well. I mean if we didn't know before the Italians gone away getting the lead sitting on it and given nothing as completely gone I mean it two nil. They were absolutely on the gals and then just from nowhere. The game's changed range with Fox goal. And really after that. There's only one team going to win and dormant. I'm Lee went for the throat and create all kinds of mayhem in the penalty box. The got goals and it ended a day dominant job. You Think Inter get that wind couple of weeks ago to oversee a doorman tuna latman against the side signed away from home. They let it all slip now. They need a miracle really. Remember people getting carried away because of a decent start in Syria. Yeah Oh there's going to be a challenge to the end of the season the four really big games to my memory. That's Dortmund twice Barcelona away and event this. They've lost four a new really really big games alien this season I think that's a telltale sign of Canedo. Will they are. Maybe follow definitely off the new where last year but not as for even though the points which suggest otherwise not as close to the event this set the table would show because event this particular well on whenever thick asks the big question into Milan. The been found a little bit wanting. It's a team you imagine. We'll have a good run in the Europa League and that pretty much everything you can say about it. I I suppose so but I I. It's yet another example of mismanagement of a game Europe to nothing. You're no the doorman is gonNA come out of the locker room at halftime. And they're gonNA come fly and they're gonNA come on pressure they're gonNA try to increasing density and the urgency of the game and yet it's like Inter Milan play back since when you don't have to do that. You you have a big guy over there and look big boy. Well hold a Bolo hold a bowl of lettuce get out no I instead of instead of doing that. You're losing the ball in bad areas. The second goal. Oh from Roussy Dorman constantly throwing you have the ball in your hands and you throw it straight to the doorman they go in and score. It's unacceptable so it looks like then. We'll be Barcelona and Borussia Dortmund making it through frank's happy we're going to him because you know the upset some fans even more good the group save big win for life sick away again Senate puts him very much.

If it's one one against Salzburg the Italians aliens. I will be fine to get through. But they've got a little bigger issues to address over the coming weeks Meanwhile Liverpool to once they can. I got the job done I suppose. What do you say another game if play another game play fixtures fractious? Well they got it. Got To give a CAULERPA arrest And they did won the game and so it ended the day. That's the only two things that really modernise was running again and given a cutler brick meanwhile from a coach's point of view. What do you make of what's going on Napoli? At the moment of course said the players weren't allowed to leave the hotel after the loss of the draw the weekend and then what happened today anthrax command said. He's not happy with that he didn't wasn't up to him. It's up to the president. It is Angelo is enchanted applause. He says when the hotel he says when he stay when they leave whatever nothing to do with this guy. So I'm I'm afraid this is up to Angelo not to push down and make you stand otherwise but she's becomes a circus. Would it help. I don't quite get the fairy if you're having in a bad run and then you're playing make a route sign on by this with a concert would say let me tell you been to whoever it was said. Yeah I mean I'm being like getting up and you can't you. You can't do this. You can't do surprised hotel. Men kind of surprised that Angelo T. I mean you would have thought anyway. I mean it's like like if the club had played. I'm talking to the team at half time. He said I would have walked away and resigned. Yeah I mean I was expecting another would expect Angela Angela. They do the same sort of thing segments. Can you any worth from from a price. Point of view for this thing happened. It didn't happen. I won't one is what I mean but if you're a player of course you're going to speak out and of course you're going to say something but but you're going to follow the instructions of the men. The men in charge and in this case is not. Who would tell you to go so it is up to Angelo to suspend up up to the team the team? What are what are we doing? Let let me run my team. You do all the other stuff. But I'm guessing that if you allow us to get involved in the past an administrative things that have to do with the players then it's difficult to close the door down it's just difficult for you. Denounce no no no. You can get involved with this but you can get involved ball with that once you open the door. It's impossible I'm surprised Angelo. It never got involved. I'm really not surprised at Angelo. Hey that guy's a winner survived. If you ever miss a show that is emmy affording this generally take out on the website. Today it was confirmed that Spurs won their appeal son. Of course being shown a red card after that challenge in the Everton game they look today and it has been rescinded. Frank is this the right decision. It's the thing is for me. It's apt to be honest. I couldn't watch the action and entirely because it kills me and I I watch somebody getting so badly injured but I always thought that because I was a defender that I have to take responsibility for my actually when they would have have injured. Somebody always thought that when it happens and when the players injured the person who was in Cho's in that AH injury should be how of the competition for the time to players was injured is out of the competition so I don't know what what is fair in that case because I know that son is the nicest person in the world on the football field but I think he. I should've been it. Should be punished for for what for what he did. I don't know what the sanctions should be. But at the end of Andhra Gomez is injured. Because he's been tackled pulled by son. Does the only thing that I can say unto Taylor still looking at via tele. He's not quite sure yet. She'll get along with other sexton decisions. You couldn't get right and not game. I don't have an issue with because I don't think it's a red cow challenged. The outcome was as bad as it can be aided and abetted by the fact oreos around as well. But I don't think the actual challenge was a red cow challenge lifelock that he failed. awkwardly on the culmination was a broken ankle. Dislocation location is in my opinion. A occupational Heisel hops Went over the top and smash them maybe common sense right okay. big-picture who means missing a game for Spurs are not how much of that difference that makes and the perception from the outside looking in that tackle where somebody gets his ankle destroy that then the red card rescinded. It wasn't a red card challenge. Well did you see the ankle. The challenge didn't didn't challenges and the reason the ankle L. suggested that again you could've done with human song being being suspended and nobody would have said anything unless you're spurs but that's not really what do you think if you think that I think I'm with Craig completely. It's a full but it's a complete accident ensure yellowcard for me would have been fine. This is not a red card and a million years and we all start every single game known that this kind of thing can happen to us know if at Homs because somebody solely and you know the Katie and they do porpoise. That's a completely different ballgame from making an innocent challenge. Get that wrong as a photo and in two pieces the guy breaks his ankle. But that that to me absolutely new wishy perform as a red card. Now I agree with you. I agree that it's not a red card challenge. I'm just saying outside from the Outside looking in you you may say well. He gets to spend time we move on with. Our lives is a perception thing but if he's wrong is role Nali well I know but many commonsense. That's all I'm asking for a look. I think since I think she's Rome.

Lots of questions about the Chelsea game today. Frank I one on few what game was better Chelsea or Tottenham Imax. I think because he was he was he was a fair game. The Tottenham I asked was so crazy I mean Luca's scoring three goals also. That was absolutely fantastic. It was at the centre off or something like that. It was just a a football game with the craziness of football game and it was no count stages stages close semifinal usually. Yeah Yup yeah. See All right. Steve Noting for cosby approval is called approval. Frank what did you make the four minute so did in the Chelsea S. Game injury-time giving measurably more. It should have been more but I think franken part shouldn't have say anything when you see the game and you see where Jesse came Kim back from. You know you shouldn't complain too much about the only four minutes. It's okay it's okay. You GotTa draw you as Stevie said you are delighted with the result result and you go to the money. He should have complained about that but he's true. Formula was a little bit. It was a bit not enough. What will it take for Valverde to be sacked? Well clearly not getting bounced out of the Champions League two years in a row after having a big league going into into the second game of those series so I think this should have happened at the end of last season. Didn't and now what you're seeing is some of the remnants of whatever this connection and whatever ill feelings towards already from the fans the players the club itself and when you have that you have lack of certainty continuity and so. You're seeing a team that doesn't quite you know whether they're going forward backward for size ways. It's no good messy messy messy on and off the field. It doesn't perform on the field. He's going to get shot and if he's fed fed up with her performances off. The field is going to get sucked so come on Mesh Final Question Stevie Caravel Cup or club World Cup which uses first team in this obviously announced that they will pay villa the day before the semi finals of the club World Cup. You know if if I was in charge I would be more infested knickebocker Kaufman Award the club World Cup call. As far as I'm concerned the club World Cup is absolute nonsense complete an utter wasted time and affection that the likes of Liverpool and the European champions in general only go to because they have no choice otherwise I wouldn't even bother so you don't like the quote workbook complete and utter nonsense wiz. Who is the time to official member among united the ethical? Yes same competition. I think that was a slightly different one company. Remember that was in Brazil. Wasn't it any other than other than Marino. You ask any role and he'll tell you the club will just complete and utter nonsense. Well if you ask maybe the European champion but if you ask teams from every other part of the world they don't look at it from that perspective I can.

Is the Bundesliga title race over?

"In welcome into this edition of ESPN FCA ON ESPN plus Sebastian Salazar. And just a few moments be joined by Don Hutchison stevie nickel and other hundred. We'll talk about life. Six two two draw against Berlin plus another look back at their classic or between by Munich and Borussia Dortmund. Meanwhile Gab Marcatti will stop by as well discussing controversial comments from one Giorgio Collini again in his autobiography Stevie and Allah will help me decide. If Mario Bala tally will be a good signing for major league soccer plus Julie. Foudy joins us with the latest on the National Women's Soccer League N W Sell Challenge Cup and their plan to return to play but we begin on the field in the Bundesliga first of five matches on Wednesdays Bundesliga a two two draw between Leipzig and heritage Berlin. The Berlin getting a late equaliser big drop points for Leipzig. Who Miss out on an opportunity to move into a tie for second place with Dortmund Dawn. Less let's break this down Stevie. I'll start with you. Strangely game from Leipzig. They go down but come back to get a red card and take the lead and then they blow that lead late what we make it a performance absolutely wrong and there were horrible. The main men van in particular had absolutely no effect on this game. Defensively the Fox goldilocks connor and the Ada gave away as well was awful so so to sum up. Well Saudi got Monsanto off so there's some themself and a home game when you have to one against half the length to go equal second in the Bundesliga and you perform like that. This team has no chance. No of getting anywhere close to violence. They were horrible. They were horrible. Gold followed the second goal. The goal keep it through. The end actually threw the ball. End The bucket. You have to see this. They were lucky to go point for me. Holy go ahead is beyond me as well. This was horrible and they were looking to a point. All that lives thing as bad as Steve Painting it out to be lifestyle whereas bad as they have been an inaugural twenty twenty when he comes to win this league play. You consider the fact that lives going into the winter break there were in first place and they're all feeling good about themselves into the story line was well buying going to be able to chase life. Down likes. It was supposed to be the team that can't buy from winning any instead what they have done this struggle to win vague that evolve and today was still an example of that finding ways to give wounds away in getting creative in doing so the fact that they go down in the game and then there's a reaction and it's one one and somehow that goal which was in shack shack home in which he just throws all literally house appoint winning to find and you think okay. Well you're going to get through this. You're GONNA see how the last ten minutes of the game or so and you're going to be able to get three points that perhaps you serve instead once again. Poor defending naive defending that. And you give a penalty you give away two points and see you guys later for whoever thought that lives. They had a chance chasing down by Munich. There is no chance and they might as well does now think about well. CaN'T WE CATCH RUSIA DOORMAN. And that's about as good as WHO's to get for us because by Munich is long gone. Don Some JEKYLL and Hyde today in Leipzig's performance and Jacqueline hiding them generally right. We see them when five. Nothing on the weekend against mine and then turning this performance today. How do you explain that a typical to explain some decent individual performance? Mcconnell at the back played well. Daniel looks like a real talent. Sabotage was his normal self but apart from that accounting timothy replies that will outstanding This is a team that sitting third in all honesty this is whether should be in the Bundesliga. Yes the money machine. Got Loads of money to spend but the not quite there yet. They're not close to buy the nowhere near and that can appreciate Dolman but I said that this is a team. That's it's drew too. Many games savage. It's that tenth drove the season in if you're going to aspire to be the champions and take by crown off them you can't draw in ten games not an abundance league. You have to win them. You HAVE TO BE RUTHLESS. And tonight they were it was it was it. It was a strange performance because it was almost like an arrogant performance. Where from the very first whistle. You thought of Atholl they were going to win this game and win it. By four or five it will average in three and a half four goals start the season but the been way off it and especially today. Ethel. I wouldn't say that it'll poll but it was just not alive sick performance alley. We spent a lot of time on this show talking about team burner and where he's going to go next but today he was awfully quiet awfully quiet inconsequential knowing back in the game whatsoever. No real threat in behind very ciro very little movement in the final third whenever he actually showed for the ball underneath a seemed like the ball was just bouncing away from him and overall I just thought that he was disinterested. And I don't say that very lightly I and what I what I saw from this player who should be the key man. The one guy that you count on for life to carry the team forward he was. I was nowhere to be found and so to the point where even though there are many down he decides to you know what it's enough team of are not that we just haven't gotten enough idol. Hammond so we're going to put numbers behind the ball and we're going to try to see the game out to one man down and and hopefully we'll get three points out of this but just consider this for a second in the world alive sick team over. Earner is Cristiano Renaldo. He's there Leon Messi. And would you ever see Ronaldo or Messi being taken off the feel even if their team was? It just doesn't happen if you are the guy if you are the mad if you're the one who's conduct upon a constant threat in the attack you're not taken off the field and said you know what we didn't get enough out of this guy. Today is better off on the bench. He's out there on the field and for it's just a disappointing performance for a guy or you might have thought after his game against minds where he scores a hat trick that the confidence would be back that there would be something about his game. That would be special then. There would be a certain motivation. A certain urgency. That wasn't there today at all. I was watching them today. I went back to see. What are we saying last week? Thirties performance when he got a hat trick and I used the world invisible and that was used in a positive manner because the goals in the movement he had and the opposition penalty box. I said you don't want this. Must be invisible because nobody seems to Bill Peckham up so some his performance out. This week he was again invisible but unfortunately for the negative reasons. Let's move on from the Leipzig and move back actually to Munich and Dortmund in case you're living under a rock. Here's a look back at their classic God. No strong hands of that moment. In the hand is there have to be stronger. His hand just thought it was a good finish and pad rouses. You know maybe one or two steps outside of his goal because maybe he's not the longest arms and so with this one or two steps in front. He tried to about a half a better angle. It's handball and that's clearly. The rule and the game should have been stopped and checks the Monitor and a penalty. It was a big moment in the game and got away with. He was clocked at twenty one miles an hour. Who's interested in these running? Twenty one miles per hour the roadrunner the after buying roadrunner ahead and steal the ball. I don't need to know how cranky is running. What is the average player run-up even though idea because nobody measure z? Because nobody cares what? I'll merchandising kilometers erling. Haaland now not score today score score the weekend. Either you're saying fair. He thinks he's done a me down. Craig what a difference. A new manager make survive off. We're finished well pretty quick. He's been measured about thirty five kilometers an hour guys as you saw on yesterday. Show plenty incidents from this game to discuss. But let's start big picture Don. I'll start with you by Munich. More win this match or to Dortmund lose it. I think by morning and I thought their tactics squad on Lucian Forbes. Wasn't I've seen the team? Line of command and to feel and lead to the game. We had to take a chance in midfield. Take a chance on. Axel. 'em John Stiff. It'll I midfield Mahmoud to WHO'd and Thomas Delany all very very good players but the man that's probably carried. The most in terms of having that steel is be Knoxville. Virtual sees now know he's being a little notebook in my opinion. I think if you go with John and bits laughing you get more of those two you can maybe take it to an hour and you can try and hang on at the ledin apart from that. It just seems to be an and don't MISS DNA when I've watched a movie. S in the Thomas. Typical underpay abortion. Now loosen fall. They can't win the very biggest games. And that's against Bion in the last eleven home games against buying Dortmund of only one four by an of one five and the drew twice so a little bit like lives. If you're GONNA catch by anemic you have beaten them at least once a season you caught me losing twice and I thought by comfortable thought. Dortmund at the game by his line was high and the first fifteen minutes. There was a couple of chances for Dortmund to maybe nick one but the more the game went on and off to Kim x chip which author was a sensational chip but again remember Burkey the very highest level seems so that Dortmund down and then more. The game went on buying took control. Keller the bowl. They kept possession. They played really well. It was it was. It was a professional performance away from home. And that's put them seven clear not eight in a row. No one's gonNA catch him now. This season the title is dumb. Stevie plenty of credit certainly for Byron Munich. But is there some blame to go for Dortmund as well? Yes absolutely I agree with definitely on gone. They won again. They did what was necessary. That certainly wasn't flashy and they got done us us for Dortmund to blame you know. Don't talk in about an ahead creek talking yesterday. We were all talking about. Who didn't play Don Zona vessel? Quake was on a boat. John Particularly Gedin Sancho and. I'm on the percent on the Jaden sensual one. You know when it comes to a big game and his court cheese when it comes cup final and somebody's fifty fifty. You take the chance when you have to take the chance. And father didn't Johnson Sancho and understand. What is against his kid? I'm she'll this kid wants to get away. You know all season long. He stopped. He'd I mean he got substituted the false game against full. No No. He's don't even plan this guy. This guy is any brains and needs to get away from far. I would say the one thing I still can't figure out from those gamers just because Dortmund took a quick corner they don't go back to the via. I mean regardless of whether it's a quick call neuro no it's a penalty kick actually one hundred percent penalty kick and regardless of what's happened straight after that when the ball went a play the should've gone straight back and it would have been a completely changed. The game in my opinion would have meant dolphin. Could've go ahead of steam up and maybe gone on again? All it will save the penalty. Talk for just a second but specifically dormant. I mean Don touched on Stevie mentioned it as well they continue to fall at this hurdle against Munich. What's wrong with Dortmund in the big moment? That's not just a question for this match but it's a question has done a Hutu to that you can ask over a sequence of matches and you have to go all the way back to the European dormant to really evaluate analyze things. Did they ride back then? And there were able to overtake by Munich Bag. Then what you see from Dorman now is that it's a good team. It's fun team to watch. There's a lot of skillful players out there. There's a Lotta talent and there are a lot of players. I'd like to play in space and in open areas and there's transition and and and what you find from them is I guess they're very entertaining but there are moments in big games in which is not so much about the entertainment value is not so much about open plays not so much by the skilful players in one be one situations is. How does this team control a Matt and no point? Yesterday was Norman Control at night. Even when they create they were creating opportunities by was one was dictating. The pace at which this game was going to be Blake. They slow down when they wanted to. They spent up when they wanted to. And if you want to speed it up. There's no better than on funds. Dave's down inside because everybody's trying to catch them and good luck with that there is. There is a pattern played that Byron was able to put out over the course of ninety minutes and just kind of fell into that trap and so if it is about quality place if it is about equality of the session of the ball the rhythm with which the play and the pace with which they played by superior in every facet of that against boroughs dorm Burmese Buddhist is unable to establish themselves on the field in a key moment in a key match and really establish who they are and so they started looking at each other and said well. What does that guy going to do? What is incentive going to do? All of the band's is Erling Haaland GonNa give us a goal and while you're waiting for everybody else to do the job by Munich. Still knocking the ball around and controlling the game away from home. Don I WANNA talk quickly about Dortmund's penalty shout on yesterday's show with suggested that had that happened at the other end of the field the Munich players would have been. I guess experienced enough to note a wait to take the corn gig. We're Dortmund's players naive or is this the fault for not acting quickly. Both I think you're right. I think the experience plays buying would have surrounded the referee. And May he went to a off to check the decision because as the guy said it was one hundred percent penalty and it's it is symbolic a crowd inside the stadium. Maybe the crowd would have shouted humble appealed and referee and listen but still you want to the officials in a would've seen it or if they didn't see it the got communication in their ears from the. Va Him. Who would be looking at it because we're all watching. The game live and as soon as soon as I saw the second replay off. It didn't say it in real time. Also the deflection in real time but at saying the second angle. It was quite clear that it came off tags and even though you had back turned it was a humble and officials have cost Dortmund. No doubt but I think the bigger picture is a as we've all Luda to in something has to change in the mentality in the DNA of the side undercut because if this carries on the hierarchy will probably look at Lucian father at the end the season and probably move them on because they call two four to be starting this by Munich going for eight in a row. And they're going to win it at some point someone asks to hall. Is this job of Munich. Because it's just getting absolutely ridiculous that just so dominant so Dortmund and lobster the chason back. A Don't believe Labor cousy Gladbach in them just yet. What dormant all GonNa Challenge Buying and win the League and top next season fun? See a change. Management might be the first poll cold in the summer. Said if I may say about the handball for the second is clearly a handball and it was not seen by the referee on live action. And you can excuse him for that because the going thousand miles per hour we we can all understand that but if there was only a system in place that was designed to help out a referee. Wait a minute we do have in place. And here's where I have a problem when we start saying and adjudicating fold on because they played the corner too quick then what? We are encouraging. Is that every time. There is some controversy or the idea of controversy. We're encouraging then players to get all the referee and start telling them to go see the rippling go see the replay go see the replay when we don't do our job in Vr and whoever is managing the Vr at the time where then encouraging players out on the feel to get into face off the referee. Because they don't trust the system and they don't chose whoever is managing the system. If you want to be they need if you want to. If you want the players to fully behave then you have to be able to control their own system that you have in front of you and if you see a replay that it's a hamble then called the hamble and we move on with our lives but maybe I'll eat. That's what Dortmund need. They need to bring that into their locker. They need to be more ruthless where they don't take the corner and they do surround the referee. You know it's about winning titles about. It's about winning the biggest games you have to be ruthless. If you're going to talk will buy you go. Make sure you get round the rich referee. Listen it's not what we WANNA see. What Steve. He'll tell you if you're going to win tiles you have to have players. That's going to demand that the referee and the officials make the right Cole. I'm with you I'm with you. I would it be the face as a referee and I can tell you that I was surprised the none of the doorman players who had their hands up and complaining about it but I also hear people say well. Do we put the game distribution when the players are going all around the referee because they to a and everything wants to? Well it's a key moment in the mount you wanNA replay. Nobody's calling for you supposed to do. How much are you going to slow it down? It should not be put in the hands of the the dominant players to slow the game down for as long as they possibly can so that somebody up in their in their booth does the job that they're supposed to do the job that they're trained to do if they don't do their job then there's not lots of the players can do gentlemen. Let's leave our discussion on by Munich. Borussia Dortmund there for now if you want plenty more under classic or just head over to the Website Gad Marcatti with an article geico gets you access to licensed agents twenty four seven which means that.

Here's what he had to say about is on Silo egg-laying quote on salaries a standup guy. A great demanding put great guy. He always needs to feel confidence around him. I love him. I like his Latino abusiveness. He's my teammate. And a sensitive person. This makes him feel things a lot. Maybe too much in some games to discuss this further. Were joined by Gab. Marcatti GAB. In this autobiography we've seen Bali with simply by mellow in the crosshairs. What do you make about these comments about waiting? I mean look. We want honesty from people and this is this is honest. You know somebody might say oh but he was honest about volatility Filippo metal. Yeah but he was also on necessarily mean out of context about about the Here he's describing winning. I think probably the way dwayne himself would would describe himself. He's always been a confidence player. He's also somebody who gets hugely emotionally involved in games Teams that he's played for When things have gone well and so. It's not surprising that no killing you would say so. I think it's a pretty honest assessment and I know he sends it might take it personally but hopefully he won't Alejandro as our resident expert in Latino a few sickness. I wonder what you make of killing these comments and if it explains Egwu is failures or maybe even just perceived failures in the big moments. Well I'm just GONNA put myself into role organ salary wine and I would say all right. You leave my Latino a few sniff out of your business. Okay how I am. And how Latino on how sensitive and all this is not of your business it really isn't and why are you putting my business out there for the world to see so that you can sell some books? Let me tell you something you want to see. The enough is enough. Keep talking about your books now really going to show and I'm GonNa tell you exactly how I feel about it. This is what I would say to giving your might teammate. I respect you but why are you talking about me? Men Don't talk about me. Wait until our careers are over and if you want to go back and look at the time that we get to do so but we're still teammates and I'm still playing a final product and I'm not a final product data. Our careers are still going. And so whatever you say now all it's GonNa do is attract attention and put attention spotlight on me which I don't mean because frankly I don't handle that all do well so you may have a point however I don't eat it to hear from you because I know for the media has it is all right look Gonzalo. Is that all sensitive but any truth. What Alenia saying here. This next fact may well hurt Napoli. His announced their all time Argentine best eleven. Of course it's highlighted by then Madonna but there is no sallow Iguana and despite the fact he scored ninety one goals in three seasons with the team of force leaving Venice in two thousand and sixteen gap. What do you make of this emission? Also said the Syria single season scoring record Don't forget one of those three seasons as well. I think this is. This is very simple. They're annoyed because of what they consider to be. The Judas move that he that he moved. Hold a moving to you it. And they're saying we don't want Benedict Arnold. We don't want Judas amongst us. This is how they view and so instead they choose a fine footballer. Roberto a pompous Sosa. Who scored six goals for Napoli in the the is one season with Napoli in the top flight? But that's fine. It's their club. Actions have consequences. You know. These aren't like the Ten Commandments. Laid down on Mount Vesuvius. This is how Napoli feels about their greatest ever Argentine players. And they look at it and say. I'm sorry you use screwed this up when you went through our heated rivals in such a way. And so you don't get to be on our full time. Argentine eleven and. I'm sure it's cutting for you. I'll he's replaced on this list by Roberto Sosa. Who had twenty eight goals in one? Sixteen appearances as best. We can tell obviously the numbers there are pretty in favor of eguaveon. What do you make of? What Napoli did here appropriate ball? But it's it's what it is you're hanging on and by way. I'm wearing Napoli Callers Today. Just to kind of set the mood. I just have to tell you that it's so petty and so necessary. And what is it that you think they're sending a message to silently Wayne? Any wine is seeing all. I can't believe that there's no doubt for anybody who has covered this game. I'd any boy or knows anything about this game. That Wayne is better than that. Wayne is better than that. He has been an incredible player for Napoli a very productive player for Napoli very sensitive unemotional player for Napoli and while he was there it was outstanding for them. And there's no question that he should be on this team but this is sort of how ridiculous Napoli can get a times and we have seen this as yet another evidence. I'll how petty and unnecessary all of this is all. I got. Thank you very much for more pettiness. Or maybe a total lack of pettiness checkout viciously sedition of the Gab and Jules podcast next episode drops tomorrow Thursday according to Jeff Carlisle. The winds of change could be affecting major league. Soccer's return to play plan. These so-called Orlando Plan has had new developments. Go down from two months to one month's more the details check out Jeff's article on the website. Let's discuss major league soccer and some players. That may be coming this way guys. I want to bring up a name that I'm sure we'll pick folks interest. That is Mario. Batali looks to be on his way out of Brescia. Is that a run in with the club. President missed about a week and a half of training. He's been linked by agent mineralogy to Turkey to Brazil Allah if I'm an MLS executive. This is exactly the Guy I want in this league. Tell me I'm wrong. You're exactly wrong yes you are. I'll tell you you're wrong. And here's the thing everybody in the career of mighty wind up daily who has had some sort of opportunity to make a decision on the player has thought to. I am the person who's going to get the best out of this guy. I'M GONNA be the one that is able to control him and he's going to be able to maximize his potential and full cash on his ability and he is going to be a drop under feel and he's going to be a draw off the field and all of those people. All of all of them have been wrong. He's on touchable and so for me. The reds of potential disaster fars way to potential positive impact that he may have on my team. I know my organization on and off the field to me if they were to come to major league soccer and do the things that he has done all over the world with name teams imagine in an environment like analyst. Would he would be given the freedom to act out then. Let me tell you something. If something goes wrong you knew about it. I knew about it. Those executives knew about it and so you should not be surprised. I would not touch them. I would not have them anywhere near marginalization. I would not have him in my team. No doubt about it. One hundred percent untouchable for me. Stevie off of his resume. We have to say it'd be one of the top forwards in the league. But would he be worth the risk for you and things specifically your as manager and you gotta deal with it. Why would they have wanted full strike because in the League the me best? Why would you say if he's not? We all know the stories with this guy away from away from football all the crazy things he does. But that's that was what it was in the beginning. He was a guy that could get away with that because on the field of play he was sensational but as the years have gone on what is going on on the field is disappear and nobody can put with the nonsense off of the field. Show any MLS EXOTIC ANYBODY INTO BOWL. Them L. S. who wants the citing? This guy the be ready to make a phone calls because every coach in the league is not going to be answering the phone because they want anything to do with the. I've always coach in today. And they called me up and says we say volatility. Do you want our ability absolutely nor chant. Guys an obsolete headache and listen. Mls for years has been fighting that please come to LS to retire the end of the career but people always say well the people that are washed up. Well if you say Bala volatility exactly what you're doing you're sending you're sending the reputation. The League bike probably five ten years ago to where people of your retirement league and these years in my opinion I think the done a lot to get rid of that but to say this guy would I think it would a large question mark over. Mls is all about all. I think he's he's washed up. You think I'm wrong to suggest that he would be a very effective player in this league. Forget the field stuff for a second if you can. I actually think that you're getting a player. That's not nearly as productive. Hussy ones was and I if I were to describe in one way and what he could potentially be a major league soccer. I would say that he says Latin size headache without their see would slots and you put up with everything. Because there's productivity on the field because there's productivity often feel when you're not getting that level of productivity? You are not getting that player. You are not getting that impact on the feeling. You're not getting that in back of the field so y all why would you even walk down that Pat and again you have to be very careful that you don't think you're the guy with the answers that you are they go mania does says you know what I can fix them? I am the one who can put him in a plan that allows me to be relatively. Well let me tell you something I do out of what he has been is a guy with a tremendous amount of talent that prefers to do other things and prefers to be a head case and prefers to be difficult and a headache rather than the player than we thought he wants was Monday for me. I'll repeat on touchable. I do not go anywhere near him. His dynamite is a ticking time bomb and it blows up in your face. Don't tell us that we didn't tell you. So when you're saying players right you're looking for red flags because anybody we had ability. There isn't tell me please if there's a there's a big red flag than this guy can't sell done with his hometown team. What has got thousands of miles away of settling down and getting these getting these head on with the job? He's set complete and it's the biggest red flag you'll of a senior life all right Pretty firm then another Steve. Y'All driving the volatility to Mls Bandwagon. We mentioned at the top of the segment major league soccer littering some changes to their. Orlando Plan. Jeff Carlos article on your dot com also on the website Graham Hayes article about the National Women's soccer leagues and their so called. Nwea Sell Challenge Cup soccer to become the first pro sports league in the United States to return to play scheduled to do so on June twenty seven and for more on that Julie. Foudy Women's national team joins US now. Welcome Julia let's dive right in. On the end of Yoursel Challenge Cup all nine teams will be involved. The top eight will make it to a knockout round tournaments and take about a month and it should feature twenty five gains. Let's start I think with the good news right. This makes the NWEA sell the first Pro Sports League team sports in the United States to announce a return to play plan. That's not insignificant Julius it I don't think so asked. Lisa bear the Commissioner of a cell. That very question I said are you. I can confirm that. And she's like I don't know I most important to us as we're safe so she's saying that it's not important to them but I do think that clearly coming out of the gate like this early gets them a lot of attention. I'm sure the sponsors love it I'm sure. Cbs BROADCAST PARTNER LOVES IT and they've brought on additional sponsors they now have. Png separate which is of course part of P. and g. But they're sponsoring actually the challenge cup and they also brought on verizon so I think that's all positive news for soccer fans and for wwl obviously good news. There are some complications as well. Especially when it comes to some of the biggest stars Julie in the National Women's soccer league the US Women's National Team Players Association and the US Soccer Federation have agreed that each women's national team player may choose for herself whether to participate in the Sell Challenge Cup. I WANNA cut straight to the point I've been at. Nwea games with the national team are there. And I've been at N W say and WWL Games when the national teamers are not the interest that this league draws when there are no use women stars on the field is much less. How big a problem. Julie is this for the end of yourself. It's definitely a loss Sebastian. That's for sure but I will say they are going to have national team players. The question is how many and they still are unsure about that because my understanding from talking to a lot of different people from the US Women's national team players association to us soccer to the cell. Is that there are a handful. And this is actually directly from Becker. Route the executive director of the National Team Players Association. She said there are a handful who are participating for sure from the national team. There are handful who are most likely not participating from the Women's national team and everyone else in between is still undecided so what that looks like come. June twenty-first when Lisa Baird said they are trying to finalize. Rosters will be something that everyone will be paying close attention to. My guess is you'll have at least a handful of not two handfuls of national team players who are not participating for various reasons. I have got confirmation as well. There will be no repercussions there's punishment they still get paid from. Us Soccer And NWS L. which pays their salaries through interview so they will not be punished for not participating But I do think there are a lot of undecided national team players right now Julie. This has always been something that if not haunted has at least affected the league right. The idea that the women's national team players hold so much influence so much power. Do you think this could be the beginning of the shift? Where maybe the players themselves rising status? I think it's a chance for them as they understood very well and the League has understood because you are missing national team player still very often whether it be for a World Cup whether be for victory tour whether it be for International. Call up that you have to have other star. So it's a great opportunity with all these eyeballs that are going to be on women's soccer as one of the first out of the gates to highlight and showcase some of these other stars because there's tremendous personalities and again we know there will be some national team players. I don't want to say there will be none and it's not an all in or all out situation for the national team as an individual decision that they're all respecting but it clearly is a wonderful window for them to highlight some of their stars. They have who are not national team players. What about the federation role in all of this obviously want to keep the national team happy but as you mentioned they subsidize the National Women's soccer league the kind of between a rock and hard place? Yeah and they don't WanNa be seeing of course as keeping this from happening as a partner with NWS l. but they also do not want to see players getting injured so from talking to sources within US soccer. They are going to have complete control over minutes per player so for a national team player to be allowed to play. In this challenge cup. They will control the minutes meeting. Soccer says rose lavelle. How only get sixty minutes in this game and rose lavelle is not pulled by her coach with sixty minutes? Rose Lavelle will not continue to play in this tournament because the last thing of course they want to see is an injury happening to these players. And one of the reasons why these players have been so UNDIS- have been undecided in. This is that there's such varying degrees of how they were able to have access to feel someplace haven't had any access to feel and they're worried about injury not having a long preseason leading into this some have had access so other in a better place in it depends where you are in your career age wise as well. So it's all these factors playing in. Us Soccer is trying to create a situation. That's beneficial to all. But at the end they have healthy players. That are coming out of this Julie. I think we're allowed to talk about an actual soccer and all of this. Who's your favorite for the W. Sell Challenge Cup? It will certainly be an interesting change in the format competition. I'm still going with the courage back. Back reigning champions. I'm guessing Paul Riley will rally a lot of his national team crew to come in. You're going to have a strong showing all of them. They're very unified group. So I am going with the North Carolina Courage Savvy. Who you've got your I mean. I think it's Foolish. Tibet in the end against anybody but the North Carolina Courage. You kind of always have to pick them. The reigning sell champions. We'll leave it there for now. If you want more Julia though check out laughter permitted podcast the latest episode with none other than Jessica McDonald who catalogs her story a heroin upbringing all the way to World Cup champion with the US women's national team one more bit of business to get to from Wednesday's Kundus legal action shock induced.

That's all the time we've got for today's edition of ESPN. Thanks to everyone who joined us done. Hutchison stevie nickel on Julie Foudy Gab. Marcatti if you haven't had enough don't worry. Time IS NEXT AND STEVIE EVERYBODY. Welcome to this edition. Espn NFC extra. Tom Sebastian Salazar doing join even by Don Hutchison and stevie nickel boys. Good to see you. Don I have a plethora of questions here but I have to get your honest and just direct reaction. What do you think of hair? It's grown on me? I'm not in a position to help it. Go and I'm vagueness beautiful belong down so I understand this had you could maybe a little bit more Jedinak. I'm feeling that it looks younger. A little more hair to worry about. Spnfz can see that. That's right that's right you and I are leaders in one category. At least frank asked. What was your typical training week like when you had a single match on the weekend? How many days did you train for? And how long DON WELL STEVE? Livable's take the the way we live. Local Monday was Batista Session. Choose that was probably a little bit harder than any other session. Wednesday was always a day off. Thursday would be fucking for. Besides maybe a few sprints and then. Friday go through all the normal routine of doing all you set place. No four against wide free kicks from right side from left side. Who's taken free kicks in and around the box and you do. Your defensive works out not much in a Friday. Maybe a short and sharp six aside just to get you feeling job ready for the matchday so probably four stroke five days a trading but hopefully intensive livable stevie few beverages. Beaupuy's mixed into that training regimen for you absolutely. Yeah Yeah Dale with four. I said the only thing of the deal as well even they off. You didn't mention the wall golf. If you mentioned the goal running around we'd be after. Ask them why you go from why you walk walking six seven miles. That's why we're giving you a day off. So he can rest. So that was. That was the key don next question for you. Who are you better friends with? You always tell us about Frank Lampard but we noticed you haven't Allen Fear Jersey hanging in your background so who's your. Oh very very good question because I work with Alan Shearer Lot. The premise channel so sea island probably wants to four nights. I wouldn't say look we're great. Maytham from the same area but me and frank. We're at West Ham together when he was a young pup coming through so I probably lean toward frantic. Some goodbye to his assistant. Jody Morris. So I'll stick the Chelsea connection very well next question comes from S-. Tv's throw in coach. Steve a few days ago. I read the following headline on a German sports paste. Liverpool legend disagrees with. Bollock because of Vandyke the article was referring to your comments on our show a few days ago you were defending. Vandyke right effectively ballot. Saying he's got it easy nowadays. Throw you know. Throw no names. That physically would give him a bottle. The last time I checked unless my glossies walking anymore funding is a mountain. That would suggest who today plus a lucky that he physically abused them because he would be able to today. Yes has to use these pacing. The is to use these brand honey has more more than enough of both. But you think second. The Van Dyke couldn't handle a physical bothell with previous sent a box. Then I thing you're kidding yourself. Don You think Michael. Golic misfired with this analysis. Yeah I saw a new way. We go and it was. It was a little bit of a cheap shot. Just mentioned the physical center full as you know on docks doing pretty well against Jaime Vardi guera hurricane and even looking back to the Champions League. He took the took care of messy. Took Care Suarez. Cotin young not concerned. Obviously but I still think you've pulled those big guys. The lots of who was probably one of the best the privilege seen in terms of physicality like Stevie said. I think there's not many flaws in Bonn escape. He's absolutely right. It needs to go into top gear because he's crews nola time he's fantastic. He's physically very strong himself. So I think you would run into the challenge. Stevie I'M GONNA come to you with our next question but I don't think you have jealous bone in your body. So we'll see they'll ask. Which teammate were you most? Nbs of during your career either before during or after you played with them nobody why would it be? I mean why would NBC nuts right? Stevie you've got it all. Nba of anyone. Very really. Have nothing to say. I'm become completely blind but I'm I'm applying. Come I always ask. The question was the who was the one or two players. Not Give you the biggest run around. And then but very wilkins probably thirty seven thirty yeah. Qbr just give me an absolute own lesson. I think Steve Actually played in the game. Was Monday night game. Qbr Lots of running. Rosenthal scored the winner for us. But I got nowhere near Wilkins because he had absolute out to the thought. I think that was my last goal for Liverpool. Was that game was annot media. School WanNa new on Monday night. At Loftus Road Rosen tells gold John Bonds Drew Game Times. Tv's memories failed him. He's envious over. The memory said he is a goal. He's the Orangemen right. Gave me by the way for the second play between six and seven hundred games and McCain Ria and you give me pal because one mixed up. Sorry Stevie won't do it again. I promise nobody gives you a tougher time than Dan. Nobody speaking of Dan Le Layer Dan one. Dan York man wants to know who was the better player. Wow what a what a choice fast warmth or Figo Don. My goodness I mean walk question is I mean. I never seen George best in. His pump certainly did gigs in Figo and they will go. But I would probably have to go. Everyone tells me I know I always go off my own. I players on what they do. Not Not not not switch on stats. Everyone tells me not with best genius to opt to go into the jury. They're actually that's how old digital I O. I guess he pleaded he was he was playing heads. abandon Edinburgh and we actually play them and the League A Cup game of the weekend. Not all right in the middle of the season unsold home Tuesday and he was supposed to play again against as on the Sunday. Beg your pardon and the reason. The game was on the Sunday as because there was a international rugby. Genetic Brown the south of the Scotland would play in France and the five nations. Unfortunately for geolog- settling for Abandon on the funds Georgia staying in the same hotel as all the rugby players. So when he was in the hub in las be before he went to bed to get ready for the game on Sunday old plays Kinman and ended up being up all night with Ed. The guy went to jail and the moment to the game and reciting the ball absolutely shows old of course over the before they gave him. It was Mr George Bush will not be appearing. Today he's not very well. Go very well anyway to see you question. It's a question you kinda on so George is was. The best is was gigs. To defect from different Eras Palm. You can only be the best yard Italian. An three of them were the best shoot in area so impossibly separate. I don't know how you pick Steve but I will never ever question your memory again. You had every detail from all of that. This is the ask. Who Would Steve Pick Servicio Ramos? Day On loft. I actually think we've seen this question before. I think he's right thing. Actually see most top enough to see over. Listen to wrap fair enough fair enough which goalscoring left-footer for Liverpool wearing fifteen with the better player Patrik Berger Daniel Storage civic question putting Bugah. What because Patrick Virga had longevity ability no question? Storage for a spell was was incredible but it was a spell. You know. I really wasn't really wasn't a lot of time at the top. Who is Patrick? Berger was at the top for probably eight to ten years show so I would say overall factory Belga. He didn't dance as well as stories. Give up hard final question. We've reached the final question here on extra time. I think it's for use Steve. Because the question is asked this way you still have Holland in your team over Davies. After the match yesterday I think earlier in the week right you. If you other folks here on the show were asked between Harvard's Davies and Holland and took Holland. Keep it that way. The question was who do you build a team around? I remember it very well. Give you the same answer. You don't build your team around left-back unless the Games moved on and I've not moved on with that is people come up without no incidence. Plus you you don't build your team around the left block as good as good as he's being good as he may become you build your team around a sent forward. Were Ahmed fielder So that's why I went with Holland and that's why I'm going to stick with Holland. John you agree with Steve. I'll give you that same that those same three Harvard's Holland and founded Davies. Who you taken. Yeah I think Steve is right. I mean it's tilted the call which one you WANNA go have. A holiday would be the to build a team around. I mean don't get me wrong. I'll hunter Davies. Looks Unbelievable Play? And let's let's hope it goes on to have a terrific career because he's got all the attributes but if you all actually start from scratch your building the team he'll you'll build it round your focal point. Which is you number nine or real creative number ten which have a then comes into the compensation heart boys. We did it. We got to the end of extra-time Stevie Don thank you very much a reminder. Do Not Miss Tomorrow Show. I'll be back in the hotseat another edition of ESPN AFC coming your way on Thursday.

Liverpool's Misery in Madrid

"Welcome in solicitation of espn afc. I'm don during the cd. Today by stevie nikko later on and turn on will be heads are managed to cities to one victory over borussia dortmund. We kick things off. I won't in craig burley an alley moreno to discuss the game in spain rid three livable. One is finished at vowed obey mouse benishi junior with a brace asensio getting a goal as well real madrid then very much a favorites going into the second anfield next week craig. Good gain round madrid. Deserved the win. Yeah enough always thought that would favorites coming into the game. And and but i was surprised away. Liverpool allowed them to dominate in the middle of the park particularly not half and so tony cruises fluid washed was able to pick policies well They look for the the only bolan behind quail particularly over the top of alexandra And that's really got. Some joy does not left on sites. I think you put cater near to get some extra energy to try and press back to because of their legs or the lack of legs and tony christian and look module the wrong side of the fifty. But that wasn't the case and so i got for liverpool as a disaster For a long period it was not a good performance. A venetia junior much-maligned bhai ram fans the media and indeed his players his teammates at times. What a showy put in today yes he did and i think those of us that have been critical of isa's junior have always pointed out of the fact that he's not always effective or efficient with his final decision or his final execution. But the one thing that you can always count on would finish. His junior is that he's always a threat he's always going to look to push that boundary. He's always going to get in behind. And what we saw from the rams read. That was very surprised. Was the fact that coleman into if you have said if the game is straight and it's back and forth and it's about a change of pace and a change of speed and athleticism. That's going to be provided by liverpool. Instead this was provided by junior. And marie and the time that tony cruz was allowed to just have and pick out whatever pass he wanted on however he wanted to pick that pass and vanessa's junior time in his own. Well it's amazing to me. How the liverpool center bags do not see this happening that tony cruz has all this time and space to play this ball over the top. And you don't take a step back that you try to maintain some sort of high limestone beneath junior takes a beautiful touch forward and then i think what's most important he finishes the play. That in itself is the biggest issue with venezia's juniors that he does and always finish the play. He doesn't always find the right pass. In this case he coupla opportunities on goal and he finished them very well and they needed that because they were not getting much from getting a lot of movement of the ball but nothing really in terms of creating inside the eighteen yard box so he had to come from somebody else and he did. Come from vinicius. Craig what is it about that. Real madrid midfield obviously casamayor crews and mortgage that. Just have this ability. It seems in big games to control. Things brought up yourself and either ability. I think that was something that liverpool take no ahead of the second leg depending on team selection real madrid of some plans to come back. We know that particularly in the defensive aspect of the team. But but y- you alok. I mean you know look which is the only guys won the ball and auto side of the guy's a fantastic player. Tony chris has been one of the best part of the ball european. Fill all these career. If you self these guys type space going to kill you the heart and so that was the disappointing thing for liverpool yourself. Quality i on the pitbulls. Oh and they'll pick let with space and on the other side of the coin is well we had a alexander. Arnold has had an autopsy these game recently from everybody. It seems as as lacking confidence i mean. He's he's not he's not going unnoticed from him. The he's seen all these headlines he's listening and hearing about people talking about no of define game against arsenal at the weekend. But i should remind everybody asking lumping. Hopless absolutely hot-listing madrid they've got quality and so it was a little bit of love oppose on downfall as well as i say if you sell real madrid anfield do the same to you. The problem is a mentioned alexander. You've got combat and you've got phillips done a decent job and they're the how do you stop best. Real madrid team scoring unfilled. I just don't see happen. There's a lot of buzz going into the salt. This game stevie no ramps and then of course the the out as well because of excitement around the liverpool fancy and why this is a great chance to and they never did well to take advantage of that then you have to keep the ball and you have to get through the middle of the park and and supply you forward langley bowls. That didn't happen. You know the boys are talking there to change with the were lion off. I think it was more to do with liverpool whether it was the three in the middle of the three front couldn't get hold of the ball when it kept breaking down. Then that's when they were getting all the space now if he's not of the fact that the loss voronin remorse the very least. What you have to do is defensively. And that's not just from the by the middle the middle three half to stop the opposition getting the bike for as craig said alexander. Graham was having a tough one. You've got phillips. Who showed has complete an utter lack of expedients. The two goals you involved then a starting positions and not comes down expedience and you can't afford to have a player and such an important position who can't get the fox basic principle of defendant and that's your starting position so no surprise you go but listen if you looking for any positive it can only be the goal and by the way the goal was a complete and utter flick eagle gionta the ground we toll came off mortgage ceylon. The back of the leg ricocheted off his other leg. It fell to him somehow poked home. That's the positive for liverpool. Today it can only get better the tie. But i'll tell you what not far no not far from going to the point that stevie was making in terms of liverpool and they're defending from the front and from the midfield. What i found very interesting is that as liverpool tried to press early on a couple of times that he was able to play through that pressure in playthrough liverpool and he fell almost liberal set. Well haunt second. If we can really use our high press if we can really unsettled rather and we're sort of cut in between and in that inbetween stays you found all this space for cruise. All the space for luca moderates castenada thought actually had a very good game and a very solid game internal breaking things up always getting underway of passing lanes. And that's how they control. It is that initially they were able to play through the early pressure and after that liberal they know what to do open till the first ten minutes of the second half where they decided. Okay you know what nothing to lose here. Let's go on press and that's when the rams back a little wobbly through the midfield but they couldn't withstand that pressure and then the third goal came from venecia's was game over. craig there was no one was there from livable. Today played well no even money. The ball was bouncing off. He's normally we expected from salah. And then he pops up in not today stevie said that was was a lawyer. Look and not go but not only salah pops up with something. Brilliant after having a eighty nine minutes of the bowl bubbling awesome. Money guys that israel even for beano. Who's been so reliable and ball retention stevie was talking about in the middle of the pop the ball retention was per so now kabbah death. Okay eliane in. Terms of highway defended with some cutler bozo. Talk where he could have done. He stayed on his feet not wasn't even alison full. The goal i mean it's not the easiest save or granite but it's not right in the call. I think it was the felt. Go which came about way too easy and it came just off to real madrid shoulda schooled from the corner should have taken the leap from the corner. Tiago bach so one on one. He's got pace. He just slept the ball on the inside of him so it was ragged as hell from liverpool at times. But still but it's not the letter pill plan bacelona on fueled when the unit two-goal with a rampart side with a full house with expectations even with players out the team that time to missing some key players. It was just a favorite night onfield. There's no crowd there and there's really no energy and consistency about team this season. Let's say that just completely safety dan. please get to the end of the season. brush sale. get the playoffs. And let's try and go again. Sales so third goal and that third goal and that golden and this is shutout to stevie and his favourite coach the liverpool throwing coach it comes from throwing forearm marine throwing that goes to the end line. I'm where their defenders around cutting bensimon and somehow he gets out of that pressure and finds luca mortgage. This isn't a moment in which liverpool was slightly better than and you have thought maybe this is when they smell and when they think they can press when they can force turnovers and for throwing in a corner that animosity gets out in five nations has scored. That goal. That to me is unacceptable. An that goal the goal and talking about philips being two yards it was said he was sent to and liverpool's best player probably for most of the season for benigno montjuich walks past them. And i think for an old liverpool finds the one thing is what can they do to change this. I don't think he can do anything. You can't do anything for looks heavy legged. I've never seen one album. Luton show tyra from the get goal. You're bringing on ti go who's not gonna be able to go and close the ball the way that the the best liverpool says on the have done so you can't change that so then. Real madrid are still get bolt unfilled. Now you have the problems. The by what are they going to do to change the bike lane. The can change the bike lane. Hallways club change. This was no crow behind. Don't there's a questions settling alonso's. And when i saw gone. Sorry i was just going to say i have been split. We're being critical of liverpool. An sands the way they played. But i really don't think it's a big surprise done. I mean i'm not. I'm not horrified by it. Because because they've been all year particularly sensitive. How horrendous injury list and so you just. I have no expectations of liverpool pertinent a sterling performance. Then i didn't have it tonight. I just got bet more pressure on real madrid particularly in the middle of the pot. But i don't really have any expectations for football team at the moment because the have so many keep the to put real madrid. I i actually think it would be shock. The moment because they have been beaten by some of the poorest teams in the premier league this season so disappointing performance in the sense. That didn't last for a long period on some of these players but not really an succomb stance he's very surprising percentage get free livable. Twenty percent fifteen percent. It's gone it's gone down in a matter of saying yeah the morning. Thank you very much guys.

Fdic champions league time anxious city beating borussia dortmund by two goals to one city would opened the scoring. Seventeen minute things came into. Broin roy so equalizing the visitors in the second half phil phone with a late late winner for city to give them the advantage going into that second leg. Welcome in native minuit anjana fuels off with you managed to say he favors to win the champions. They played favorites today. Do you know what you say that the performance wasn't that bad i think today probably played basketball teams anticipated and city. You know they. They went about the business. They moved the ball. Well they create a few chances but this is ultimately what you expect the rounds of champions league game i think basically pro made a good counter for themselves and so did city and i think it's one result in my opinion was a fair result but the way city definitely had to earn it was something wasn't expected by many book credits dorm and they played while they played without fear. And you know with someone like colin up top. There you can create is you can take johnson. There's always going to be a threat. I get the spain. Yeah and then. I get the borussia dortmund by better than they have. This is a team. That faith in the bundesliga. We've talked extensively about them struggling domestically they should have been there for the taking kevin de broin schools that go on the seventeenth minute. Every fill three full nail sitting should have put this tighter badge. Well they should. But i agree that they start to quite well doors. I think they they played without activity. We've got nothing to lose. We watched him on saturday truck frankfurt and you felt that it can happen same today. Mass schulkin when it came to city. I would hammoud by massachusetts. There was no chance of happening today. There was some great players soon to dorfman side today. I think it would be very happy with it. That's game taking a goal with them back to will manage to city disappointed now. They're not used to going so far. They would be just happy that do what it had to do to win the game coming back at one one dot was sealed and delivered and then debris in a game to kindergarten to photo and they made it look so easy too so efficient and again don i. I'm so irritated mounier. Every time he plays for he makes a mistake and he did it again today. What am i missing hair. Manchester city should have put these titans abate. We shouldn't even be looking ahead to the second. Like manchesater superior to brucie dolman. But yet again as we've seen over the years of pep guardiola in the champions league leaving the door open for these various is in the second lane is a fair point that managed the city. Maybe should be more souverain est word for it. They should have scored more goals. But i think that you should also respect the opposition dortmund yes. They are fifth in the league. That a terrible game on saturday but as as been said that there are potential players in that side as well on today to city did what i had to do. I still think they will knock out boost your doors one. I still think they are alongside the favorite to win the champions league but these those kind of games like today that those will happen. I understand that night seem to happen too. Much in the champions. These changes dan. Honestly you're such a wire you bring me on the show just to why honestly crazy but for city today be dormund and this is the first time they've won the won a game in the first leg at this stage of the champions league. Still we're asking questions or asking questions. I think matches can pay for. Its who have a superior dolphin as they were superior in the own inspectors and those other sides that they got not yet they just can't get on the line when they need sick which is fair in this instance trying to ask questions about team that just wanna game. They didn't draw the game or lose the game. We asking questions is if they did. I think when they look at it all said and done they'll be happy to take a lead to dortmund and as far as city go. They are from foot side. They're not gonna just sit back for ninety minutes and try and hold onto that leads. Expect more goals in the second-leg so overall you can look in and say well for this leg now. Obviously disappointed with concede in but they won the game. They have something they have an advantage going into the next stage and for as much as people like you will ask those questions over and over and over if they keep winning games like this they could end up with four trophies so credit to them and credits for making could go. But i will annoy dan. It will annoy of course manchester city that these questions are put out there because they wanted that three or four nil to show everybody that they are there. They'd be dominant in the premise ship. And they want to today to have a great performance. And that didn't do that. I think this is a chance for dortmund because now coming up to the game when people will ask them do they still have. The puck can win. It can pep guardiola win without messi. He hates talking so so many games when he's playing liverpool for for example in the last round and he has lost its and i hopefully for doctrine that he will lose a game by people like you don making those questions so so the real thing. We need to find a figure out all the things that them was saying from a very sensible point of view. An irrational point of you is correct. The problem is in shade insane. Manchester city's Jason room and say the courtroom as little thing in the back of their head saying well you know. We wanted a bigger victory. We didn't want them to get an away goal. And we've messed this before. Listen if you're all thinking the we nanomoles then they're in good shape their thinking that we we are well. You don't want this is out before not could change the whole thing go native have to of course. Yeah so. I think that's a i think you've made some good points as they've but to look at it they have won the game but they won a tough game and i think for them. The way that city are the way the pepitas especially the season the they will learn like it was a point in the game where holland push over as and then you think the as is now going to change the way. He approaches holland who can adapt on the fly. And i think if they would have won three hundred four nil then. Maybe that might have been overconfident. Going forward but the that they had earned this victory and this is the first time they've won in the first leg in a quarter-final in the champions league. I think that that means something. So even though they could be doubt so whatever the fights matter they were in a tough game today and they came out on top so surely that should provide confidence going forward to speak next. Yeah yes please on the other side you have. You have mentioned city who don't have data culture in a champions league approach the other side tonight. We watched two games. We saw a real madrid. I wanted thirteen times when coming to april. And may they are at their best is like the former coach of bio munich. Always said you pint. April and may are the two best months and most important months for by munich. My is not there yet so they need to know that now is the time that they have to to to play well on that disappoint for you done that. They went out fantastic's today still. They won the game with question mark. Will we have to put the to them till they do something in april and may barris. Guardiola only doesn't have money to buy all on. Here's more or less used all the oil and gas money that is to spend so now. Is the pressure on him to just one last point on this game. Nate them that disallow go brucie dortmund. Incomplete joke nothing to do with far. Just a terrible refereeing decision. Yeah as we can all say everyone will agree. That blew the whistle too soon. Because i think if you allows the goal to go yeah and then he wants to change his mind whatever. Vr will change the decision because it seemed like it was a fair tackles fair challenge and bellingham was rewarded for essentially go in and trying to press the goalkeeper. And it's a shame that goals like that are being disallowed. But i was thinking the biggest problem with they are and stuff is the human element of it. And i think when the referees and people don't quite get the procedures right you left in positions whereby look goals which should be allowed which kombi because now the cohen troughton selves in solve like via the logic and it. It's a shame and i think he deserve that goal because he played very well today. Yeah he played excellent. Yeah just done by the whistle. It's that simple isn't it. Well the problem is we are. Yeah the understanding. Football doesn't rise by the referee son. If he led the go on for two seconds he could send it to are they could come back and undo do dot full him on sometimes well. We get frustrated by far but we get at least frustrated when goals should be given on kind of the referees baker to early and is sometimes the understanding of football by someone. referees var can help that either so There was a big big wrong decision by the remaining today at yet. Thank you very much guys much appreciate. It just reminded from native over on extra time. You can check out. All the dishes served in the outcome and glenn danzig ferrari on youtube channel.

We learned today fine without mabry as well. He tested positive for covid. Dossey then on the sidelines. Yeah yeah this is the second time that happened to knob. Rian unlucky with covid baia. Did they go into this game and again there are small things that kind of makes it a bit trouble at byeon today as well jerome. Boateng was told that he won't a contract for next year and hansi fleet was wondering. Why does this come out to the press. And we talked about all these kind of things before between him and head of sports seller homage. So this is what by and do but what by. Also do that win. Football games sunday are playing a g without the ratty and not only that they have trouble in in france in league lucy against a little so i will still say byron are are highly favorites to win this game here. The moment even more so compared to the side that lost in the final of the champions league last season. If you're buying me it would be It would be a huge shock if they don't get through these. It would also because of the champions league final from last time receded canadian. That'd be seeing the top game. They truck against the top teams in in france. Like is leaving the league and for put your teen coming with an image not winning titles and then he comes to their team that can guarantee him tight we thought and now they're playing by the reigning champion of europe. So it's going to be a tough game for psg and you said it would be a big big shock if if buying it knocked out even without robot dolph ski who the paradox is that he gets injured against endure in national game and can't play these vital gabe for them into champions league. Fueled off as always. Thank you very much figure. Thoughts remind the other tie on wednesday chelsea inaction against a ports. I've no surprise there. Chelsea big big favorites to advance to the semifinals. No matter where you are during the masters you can still be a patron. The masters is using the flexibility of a hybrid cloud with ibm to share the tournament with fans around the world. Masters is wherever you are learn more. Ibm dot com slash. Masters brings us the end of today's show. Thank you very much to everyone who has been on. Stay tuned because extra time is next Native ali and stevie with me to unseal tweets stay with us welcomes edition of extra time. Figures always for your tweets nadim stevie and still with me. Gentlemen i want to start with that. Footage that has gone viral of the linesmen chasing harlan. Down the tunnels autograph. The end of the game. Don't mind this to you. I mean. I just can't believe anybody the positionally though with do something so stupid. I mean not not only as is just wrong but you're opening yourself to people question questioned years. Just awful. Alex you have a problem with it simply unacceptable. Dan should not happen. It's just simple as that. You cannot have the officials in a match any match whatsoever showing this sort of attitude tourists a player. There's gotta be a distance between officials of the magic and those that are involved in the game. There aren't any human them. I agree. I agree with the guys bad for me. If you're going to be that type of person then do away from the cameras. You can't be seen to be doing stuff like that because as we say just leave yourself open criticism and in the future if it gives a favorable decision to holland video pops up. Let's let's clear this before we're going to follow okay are not humor are stevie the not that are completely different breed. So let's get clear. I tweet then. Does ali of any words for don who called him. Romantic for thinking. Madrid with bats in midfield and european pedigree would win the match. This is where don pooh-poohed you on yesterday show when you suggested that round failed was better than liverpool's alley. Yeah and he went as far as to say. Diy discount that. I will be the difference maker well so much. So that club beaming even start the alcantara. In the match. I would say to dawn as part of their requests them. This tweet is that you were wrong. And frankly this midfield quite frankly just midfield on my read has been the best midfield and the world at their very best. They can control any match at their best. They can control any game. We have seen it. Throughout the course of the year that i'm marie has had all sorts of difficulties and injuries and absences. If this midfield threes in play there they can still control a game and they can still maintain themselves somewhere where they can win a match. That's how they have been like ali's oscar speeches and that don stupid ferrari driving ways considering it just simply answering the question. That's what i do considering that no liverpool players being as good as they were in the past. Why top stevie. Who would you give the player of the year award to i think. Easy for venue. For being your question in my opinion has been the most consistent livable player high level every time you stepped on the field today today one by gammon hundred every time he said one by one hundred so that means he's percents he's he's done in one thousand nine hundred ninety dollars. You could argue over. Georgia has been fantastic as well but he hasn't played the amount of games together. So i would say for being steamy does trends. Don't deserve to be called up to the england squad cam balsa ramat trade as look strong at the moment as that time. Like the side. La liga editing too long because this person red routes it promptly and i'm just guessing on autocorrect i first of all on the trent alexander. Arnold question there was a play in the first half where for landman the win around. He wasn't even there. It is poor defending. it's very wars. What we're seeing from alexander right now ask for luna think the best thing that could have happened to salon is the fact that they are still involved in champions league and that they had to play a game today that even though they controlled it at the end of the match you were seeing a lot of tire legs from today the word to the point to where they were dropping so far back. They really have outlets going forward. Maybe if you were barcelona. You're looking at that and saying we're not going to get a reality. That is their very best. Because not only are they coming from this match against liverpool. They're also looking ahead to the next match against liverpool. Were there any teammates nadim. You had surprise you with how well they game aged over time pool off the top of my head. I'd say most place to be on us because the thing when you get to the point where physically not your best. You've got the experience understanding of how smart you play the game to make you very very easy. So they were plays who's ultimately had lost their pace but nobody could ever pass them because they always put themselves in better positions now. So you know. It's the cliche say simone like events and company over time because when i came to city is the defensive midfielder by it's i'm us leave and he was one of the best in the club's history stevie probably see A good friend micha on really well he was he was just a kid when i leave with the liverpool and played with them for what two seasons and the difference in two and a half years from when he first joined the team to win. Our left was absolutely huge. I mean you talk about michio. Just physically discipline wise Strand using you name. It standing the game. Finishing every single thing didn't gradually get beth just to off. It was super fun. So i was gonna say stevie and is our link because i also play the minimum. Who would have thought about when he's leaving. Yeah exactly that's right for a link. Twin staving found exactly right ali. Well i actually was going to answer that question with a question. What what happens and i'm just asking for what happens with a player that never had to begin with so get sold older. There was no pace to lose those count. Does that amount to anything. Like hugh though increased over time. Yeah yes yes. And the experience and the new orleans standing right. I think i can answer this four. You guys the most dramatic ending to a match that you've played in. It's just nine hundred thousand. Nine stephen liverpool him. I would suggest maybe keep beyond manchester city. The most dramatic ending ali Hey it wasn't a good ending. I was let's call playoffs. Jose was with the legality. At the time we were up to not in from the first game we are also to nothing in that particular game win that up. Loosen the game. Five to last goal was four in extra time and we were eliminated and for the fence and san jose. That was fantastic for those that were on. The field remains perhaps a low point in my career. Nice all of your dramatic endings. You're on the losing signed no. I'm just saying that was dramatic. Not everyone question. What's the most ridiculously good assist witnessed in a game staving ridiculously good. Yes okay. I can't think of too many straight ahead i'll give you joan bonds and you can call it ridiculous. You could just call a normal. John says would pick the ball up on halfway dribble plus three or four players. Get to by elaine. I was standing there on the six-yard lane wind and ice much an on call. That was ridiculous. Normal john bums just really about getting your go into the conversation. Well this something remain. Joel stern alley banney. All i actually was in the middle of this play once provide arneses with my backside. Oh i saw was shielding off the defender being quite know exactly where the move was gonna come and i was just trying to get position was flicked onto me. And what are you know. I flex the muscles put it in for a through ball was going to win. Game winner won the match. That's all. I got to tell you my backside. Nice and useful back. Then by the way when he says shielding defend the remains. You is halfway towards the floor. Hey i find that muscle though most ridiculous. Good okay so there was this. Those words this young player he was much ac- was playing right back. You call the ball up. Some hawks dribble past three four players chopped one back through one on the floor and then played a nice toepoke ball. Giovanni smashed into the boston corner. First game of the season this spring gore erickson. This is going to be cities year. Greatest assist ever seen kind of that was just taking credit for that by the meal. The only one in my career but you know hey picked early really that. Was that what happened afterward. What happened to her own. I just woke up and then it was. It was game over vows the rest of my career and that was it done excellent. Thank you very much. Guys just reminded. Espn se back on your screen tomorrow. Volume eunuch pass. J. match moved dominate.

How is everyone doing out there welcome back to your favorite soccer podcast. As you guys know I'm Steven Melendez from Miami Florida just really excited to be talking to you guys. Once again, we have a lot of exciting things to talk about the group stage draw for the champions. League is already out of you know we have some Domestic Cup games that have happened throughout the week that we're going to be talking about and I have a brand new top ten series coming your way. For you know a few shows now. Let's get right into what we're. GonNa be talking about in today's show to start be episode I want to be talking about the Champions League group stage specifically groups A and B I feel like it'd be good just to break them down to groups per episode just like get into detail about each group next we're GONNA be talking about the DFL supercup showdown between Byron Munich and Borussia Dortmund, and then in the third part of the show I'm going to be recapping the round of sixteen match ups in the About Cup. Yeah. I've been doing that for a little while now and I just we're getting deeper into that competition I'm excited to see all these New, matchups you know that await us, and then of course, the last part of the show my favorite 'cause I get to be creative on this one we're GONNA be talking about the top ten goalkeepers of all time. Yes I am I done pretty much of each position now in the world and now we're moving into the all time category and I'm so excited to learn about some of these guys because as you guys know I have not been a fan of soccer forever twenty six years old I've been a fan for maybe like sixteen years now and I'm just excited to just learn about all these really exciting players throughout the history of soccer so. Let's just get right into it starting with the Champions League group stage preview starting with groups a. b. now, what I going to be talking about in this segment pretty much just you know the groups and how each team the each team's history in the Champions League going to be talking about their top players they're going to need to step up in order to really you know make some noise in the group Deja advanced to the knockout rounds, and of course, where they're going to be ending up in the group I have a couple. You know. Surprises in here, some that you guys might not expect So let's get right into it. With, Group A we have Byron Munich I say now Athletico Madrid rb Salzburg and Lokomotiv Moscow. Now, this is obviously the whole yacht, the holders in this group with Byron Muench in you know having one last year, and you know pretty much being considered the best team in the entire world and they have experienced in this competition of course, pretty much every single year even dating back into the you know like the Mid Nineteen Ninety, one, thousand, nine, hundred seventies they won three back to back titles from seventy, four to seventy six one of the only clubs to ever do so along with Real Madrid and. Then they did, and then then it took a little while for them to win again. But then they did win in two, thousand, one, an and twenty thirteen when they defeated Baru she, Dorfman and then of course, last year beating PSG and much dominating the entire tournament. So they come into this match or they come into this group obviously as the clear favorites and nobody including myself expect him to finish any worse than I in this group even though they do, they will have some tough match-up against Athletico Madrid and you'll dig Diego. Diego. Yoni side. Obviously he's a really good tactician and his defensive. Tactics obviously, extremely good. Probably one of the best in the world in my opinion but let's get into some of the top players that Byron Munich has on their team. I've talked about this plenty of times. in my shows but one more time just for good old sakes and for this you know Champions League preview. So they obviously got Robert Lewandowski Thomas Mueller men will newer Leroy sonnet have a bunch of great players but I feel like the most important player in this group is going to Thomas. Mueller I usually always say Lohan dowse casey usually newer but I feel like in this one when they're taking on a team like Athletic Madrid rb Salisbury who likes to get out and running you're going to be dealing with. Problems in the midfield and Thomas Mueller takes care of that I mean yes. They also belong it's got to really handle that but they don't have Tivo anymore and I feel like without Tiago in the lineup. They're going to need more control and more you know just. Just, more this handle that midfield with more consistency and I feel like Thomas is really going to help with that, and he is considered to meet is going to be the most important player. For the group stage matches, of course, as they keep on going on, they're going to need that star power of Lewandowski Taos Ski. Newer to stop you know a lot of these goals. The thing is in in this group, you don't have a lot of like star power in the fords. I mean obviously athletic Madrid now have Luis Suarez they have a jaw Felix, but the way that they play is Berry. Out of here, a conservative and I guess, maybe if the Eagles Simione, he sees this new side any you know he wants to ramp up like the way that they played change it up which I doubt because he hasn't done it in all the years that he's managed athletic the so I just expect them to you know play the same way they have, which is why Mueller is. Going to be extremely important in controlling that midfield, they can control that midfield and Mueller, just manage it and pass and and and you know play solid defense throughout the throughout these matches. There is no reason borrow Munich shouldn't be able to come out on top handily and be probably you know the most dominant group in the group stage once again, this season just like they were last year. so I expect them to finish first in this group. No doubt about it. Next, we have Athletico Madrid, they have yet to win the Champions League. they were runners up three times in their history, one in seventy four, and then twice in two, thousand, four, hundred, one, and twenty, one, two, thousand, fourteen, and another twenty, sixteen, both of those being losses to reopen dribbed during their three peat. Of course that honestly hurts even more when you consider the fact that those are their rivals. So athletic obviously have not had the best of luck in this tournament. And I'll I feel like a lot of the has to do with their style faith I don't feel like being conservative and and playing defensive really gets you wins shirt keep you very competitive in literally every match you play. That's why it's let me go up. You know some of the most consumer probably the most consistent club you'll find around but they. Need, to find a different gear on the attack and I feel like this season when you have a guy like Louis Suarez Jau Felix they no longer how our murata they loaned him out to drew. But you know I'm held career. You have a lot of players that can really get you going and they showed it in that one match against. Granada that I already talked about. Now. The most important player in this turn out in the group stage for them go and pretty much for the entire tournament is still going to be John O. Block. They're probably the best goalkeeper in the entire world or he is the best goalkeeper Maine Tara World. There's no doubt about it. He has been as consistent as they come between the sticks and. He's going that he they're going to need more world class performances from him in order to really make it you know through this tournament. Group stage that I don't think they have anything to worry about I do not believe I'll be is going to. Produce enough on the offensive end especially with them just. Relying on a lot of youth so I don't expect them to really make a big run for second place I mean can always happen but I just think Athletico Madrid or have too much. Quality are managed well enough to just make it into that next stage Second because I just do not see them. I mean it honestly to me it all depends can athletico changed their style of play camping no longer play conservative candidate try to change it up and you know. Get Out of their comfort zone if they can I could see it if not then just you know they're going to continue to finish second goal against a team I in the end and but the thing is in the knockout rounds I feel like they definitely have a big chance. I already had them as one of my via saw my last episode out on in the top ten teams that can win the Champions League. Because, I just love the addition of Luis Suarez and they're attacked looks you know another year of Jiao Felix is GonNa Look Great. Obviously, they still have John O. Block and of course Jose. Jimenez they were able to keep an Thomas partee You know they were able to hold onto a lot of their key pieces. So this is definitely still one of the best in the world no doubt about it but. I keep going back they they need to improve that A. The attacking tactics, they just do if they don't it's probably going to be the same old same old for Athletic Madrid but they have the personnel now I feel like they have the best personnel that they have. They have had in years even when they had Antoine Grease men I, mean no disrespect to green but I feel like Joffe Felix Luis. Suarez Korea, I mean, they just add a Ren. Day. They just add a different dynamic and something more like team central that they can get going on any given night. So I still expect them to finish second in this group but. Who knows if they if they look better on the offensive end, maybe they can mean make a run at by Munich. I highly doubt though next we have our be sows Berg of the Austria League. Now they've made it to the champions, league group stage tool years in a row for the first time in club history. So they are definitely expiring the most the experiencing. The most success that they've had You know ever they have just never made it out of the knockout rounds of the Champions League I don't expect that to change. Again now, they are like I said with when I was talking about, let me go relying on a lot of youth. They got twenty year old one year old pats in. Dhaka. was their leading goalscorer. Leading goalscorer my God, my bad guys leading goalscorer last season with twenty four goals. has three this. So you know he's obviously still writing that great form Dominic Zo Bosnia. Or Bows Life I've probably said that name wrong. But you know he's a nineteen year old he had nine goals ten assists last season will be expected to. Be Great again, this year they do not have a he wang the guy he went to rb Leipzig. Obviously you know that partnership that they have an you know. So they're obviously gonNA. Miss Him and obviously her erling. Haaland, who was there last year made them really well, and probably was the reason they made to the Champions League group stage but. Then they also have circle Koito twenty old he had eagles to assist. Last season already has two goals and an assist dish year and they're gonNA be relying on all those young players. So this is just going to be another year of them getting experienced and battling for that third position to try to make it into the aerobics league with Lokomotiv, Moscow which I. Do expect them to get it because I like their youth quality. You know even though they're relying on us, it's going to be if it's a lot of good quality there and I bet and I expect it to be better than one local locomotive have coming at coming out because they are missing a few players had last season that really did help them out. which will all be getting into soon. So I do expect them to finish third in this. Group next we have Lokomotiv Moscow now they've made it to the Champions League six times all in the twenty first century They've actually made it to the group stage, three years in a row now from a star back back to dating back to two thousand eighteen and they've only made it to the knockout rounds once in over three Oh four where they lost to Monaco in the remers sixteen now. This obviously being in a group with athletic goal and Biron do not expect them to get anywhere near second place. It just won't happen. They don't have the quality They're still relying on guys from last season like Gregory CHOVANEC who had nine goals to assist last year and. I mean he's just doesn't have the quality that federal small love he was good. He three goals three assists last season already has three goals this year. So He's obviously taking a step forward but then also Anton meeting choke he had three goals on a and an assist last season and already has a goal and two assists this year you know it's obviously he's improving as well but they are missing Alexi meeting shock from last season, their leading goal score. He's no longer there. He went to Atlanta and that's a big time. Miss. So without enough. Attacking quality in their side I don't expect them to make it anywhere past fourth. So I see R B ob. Rb South for getting that Europa League spot and locomotive better luck next year. So now, we're GONNA moving on, we're going to be moving onto group B. or we have Real Madrid Schachter. Don't ask Inter Milan and Borussia Moenchengladbach of course I. Love saying that last name you're that say it's so well you know but in this group we I actually feel like this is a very competitive group of you know aside from the top even though this is where this is one where I see. My first upset because I actually see Inter Milan possibly leading this group I really do like Inter Milan squad as good as a Real Madrid are especially on the defensive end. I just don't feel like they'll be producing enough offense especially against a really good defense like. To lead the group and then of course, you're going to have shocked are. Battling out for whoever makes it into the into the Europa League. But let's just get into each team one by one starting with Real Madrid Champions League winners, Thirteen Times they went. Back. To back to back to back five times. Five time winners from fifty six to sixty, two, nineteen, sixty, just ridiculous run there and then of course, and they won the `threepeat with Rinaldo from sixteen seventeen eighteen just. One of the best in the world for a reason, and that's because they win it on the big stage they have for generations. So now in this generation, their top players are Corinne, Benza Ma, and then of course, that dynamic defensive trio of Sergio, Romo Customer Bureau and courtois now I feel like that's going to be their main key. Just keeping up how great that defense was last season they need that to be a continuing moving into this season if they really want to make a dent in the image group stage on on top however like I said talking about Inter Milan possibly leading this group, they need that offense they need that attack to be consistent you know Luca Moultik they need Tony. Crows to be good his junior they are relying on a few younger pieces like odaguard and three go But in the end it all comes down to cutting Bensimon. Can he get the goals on a consistent basis to to really lead this group? I don't think. So I feel I feel like they're going to finish second? No, they're obviously of course, they're going to move on to the knockout rounds I do not see that big of that. Big of a shock to happen we're shack Tar Baru Shia. beat. In any of the matches they play maybe a draw here and there, but I definitely see Real Madrid moving onto the to the knockout rounds just second in this group this I definitely see a big time upset happening here, and that's where I come in with Inter. Milan they've won the Champions League three times most recently in twenty ten in they wanted to sixty, five and sixty. Four It was called the what is it the Champions Cup or the European Cup? But yeah that's before my time before my knowledge. But now I feel like they have just a really good overall squad. I. Love Their attack of Kaku. La Dot Martinez, and then of course. Alexi. Sanchez. But then you also add one of the best full-back attackers or one of the best attacking fullbacks say in Hakimi. I think like he really adds a different dynamic for this team at to where they'll be attacking and scoring on a consistent basis in the Champions League. And I feel like they can't speak out a win over Real Madrid I feel like they get one win and then the other one would be a draw and that's where I feel. The difference would be it'd be close I'm not saying Inter Milan's like runaway with this group absolutely not but I feel like it'll be really close. and a big part of that is because their defense is very solid. They have Stephen Fry they have one of the best defensive midfielders which I've been saying for a while and Marcelo, bro Cevik, and then of course, the Captain Samir damage, they have solid defenders and enough of them to really. In my opinion to stifle Real Madrid's attack of course that you know I'm going to be really keeping an eye on those matches between Madrid and Inter Milan to see if I'm correct on this but. With, that being said, I do believe they ended up finishing first. because. I just I just have a feeling here. I just have a feeling here. Of course you guys can come back. If you WanNa comment tell me I'm wrong row Madrid's GONNA come out on top because I know there is a whole lot of Real Madrid fans out there and they're going to be telling me like dude, you're you're crazy you have no idea what you're talking about but we'll see we'll see I think Inter Milan have a good chance I put them in my top ten teams win the Champions League. In the last episode last show and I feel like they have a really good chance here. So now we're GONNA move onto shack tar don't ask where. They've had some experience, but their first Champions League stint was back in two, thousand, two, thousand one and their best finish was the quarterfinals in twenty, one, twenty, ten, twenty eleven where they lost to Barcelona they have had a few knockout round exp- appearances, but they have mainly finished outside the top two of the group's age in their history now. I do like their overall attack like they have a really good attack here with junior murray is a Thai. Song. But they are relying on a lot of youth here with Marcus on Tonio the Dodo They are experienced. You know they have a lot of youth here, and of course, if they are able to come out on top and play. To, the quality that I know that they have, of course, they can finish their however I do not feel like it'll be enough especially on the defensive end to stop what Brusca much in. God, back will have, and that's why I see. Shakhtar finishing last in this group I feel like that's a bit of a I feel like this is also a bit of a shocker for some people listening because I feel like shock targes have a very. Explosive and I feel like they can. I mean they had like four notes at like six goals in the semi fire I. Think I'm going to there was four goals in the semi final of the Europa or the quarterfinals of the Europa League last year where they absolutely blew out I forgot which team it was but they just looked so good and I mean they're bringing back pretty much the same team and they're getting those youth geysers an extra year of experience, and of course, this Champions League experience going to be great for them but I just don't think they have enough. Because, I, believe Borussia Moenchengladbach have a better overall team when you're talking about their attack of Marcus Theorem and allison plea. But then you're talking about they have the better goalkeeper among these two teams and I feel like that is ultimately is going to push them over the Edge Yon Summer of Bruce munching allowed back is the key for them to get into the Europa League because there's no way. I mean no way merging Gladbach surprise enough to get second in this group. There's. Absolutely. No Way. But. They have experienced especially recently, they've made it to the Champions League three years. The first appearance was in two, thousand, fifteen they had a backpack appearance in two, Thousand Sixteen and then now twenty twenty. So I feel like with a lot of their youth and you know or not really us. But like you know just they're good 'cause like Marcus please only twenty seven theorem how old he is, but he know he's nine in his thirties. So he's on he's on the right side of thirty. They got guys in their prime that are. That are performing forum I mean, you've got inter I I'd like this group and I, feel like they can finish third and go into the AROPA. So. That's going to wrap it up for this segment.

Welcome back everyone. If you missed the last segment I talked about the Champions League Group A and B you know previewed all the teams and where they would finish the group. Now we're GONNA be talking about the DFL supercup showdown between Borussia Dortmund and Byron Mnuchin. In this game, of course, you know you're getting a classic rivalry between two German giants and I mean I was excited to watch this game You know I I it's it's the match or you're waiting for in German football. You always want Byron Munich versus Borussia Dortmund and we've got a classic match with buyer Munich beating Borussia Dortmund three two. This was the eighth DFL supercup, win for Byron and the fifth loss, Borussia Dortmund, and for the most part this was. At, least in the second half of felt like this was Borussia Dortmund's game to loose 'cause even though Byron Munich you know had the lead for this entire match you know even though it was tied for a lot of it Man It just felt like Bruce Dorman had a chance here to win the game and They made a few questionable substitutions late in the game that I fell and also they started some you know people that didn't expect I thought Exa. Woodson. We gotTA start here. I. Thought You'd see Giovanni Riina Raina but you did not Brent was in there and you know Julian brand and he played while he got a goal in this one and a really really. Good one at that. But in the start of this match was all Byron Munich. I mean they were doing you know with buying Munich, does, which is control the gain control, the midfield, and just pretty much dominate the competition and I expected just a bit more from from Borussia Dortmund to start this game you know when you're going into the season especially when you have guys I mean Oh and big note on this one John Central did not play. So so that's obviously very huge something that you know would obviously hurt Borussia Dortmund in this game. Because John Sancho is their creative the guy that that gets them into their spots and they just that was one of the things that seem to be missing and it's crazy because even despite not having him, they still played pretty well, you got very solid contributions from a brand. I like what I saw from. Royce. Jalan despite getting a goal Kinda seemed a little quiet in this one even though he. Kind of woke up a bit late in the game especially in the second half where he got his goal, which is a really nice goal at that. got a good run. got a good pass from Delaney and you know scored passed a newer but then had another chance goal which was even more wide open other even though they were both pretty much one on one this one he had way more time. And of course, newer comes through and puts out that big right hand and stops the ball from you know for for not to get that three to lead and that would ultimately me the can be the game for them because. Man What kimmage did at the end of that game? I mean. Some people say it's luck I mean do that look like downright skill? I mean this guy as he's falling down I I know he you know it was it was a bit lucky to to get that ball to rebound literally right back into his path but. To have the skill the the the composure to as you're falling down still be able to kick the ball over goalkeeper and score your team a game winner I mean. That's what you want in a in a player. You want a guy to be able to you know even in the tough situations come through with the result for you, and that's what Joshua kimmage seems to do for this team night in and night out. I mean I. Don't know what else to say about him. He's he's literally to I, and the thing is I actually don't give him enough enough credit because even when I was in the last segment when I was talking about by Munich, I didn't mention him. I didn't, and he came through huge for by Munich in this game, he ended up being he's the man of the match in my opinion. I mean, they also got some other contributions of course Thomas. Mueller get nut. You know really nice header in the back post from from across from Alfonso Davies. Davies still doing what he always does. You know putting in Nice crosses getting better with his passes and then Mueller which is you know he's always at least last year he was known more for his passing but. He can still get goals man and he got a really nice header, hit the post and goes into give them a tool lead. And it kind of felt like it was going to be all Byron Munich in this game. It really did I mean of course like I said wanted to the Julian Blanc Ole came shortly after that like in the thirty nine th minute. Erling Haaland drawing in so much attention and he got any got an exorcist although Lucas Hernandez Kinda committed a little too much to Erling Haaland. Seoul was still there could have made it could have been a play on it but Lucas and as I understand Holland is one of the best strikers in the world and you know when you have a guy like that going into, you know get near box you gotta give attention to him, but it left Brent Wide Open I mean that and that's shot by Brent. Wasn't going it doesn't matter if you had literally brick wall in front of that goal that was going through it it was a rocky a pass right by newer yet had no chance and he made a statement he made a statement what that bowl. And I mean like I will say that there was some questionable substitution like even after how long did he literally had a part in both of their goals even though I feel like he could have done a little more like be a little more active with his runs. I guess they saw that least you know five, the manager saw that and. Substitute him in the sixty eighth minute. I didn't like that too much for and Ranier nonetheless I mean he he's a good player but no Holland. and. When you need to get a goal, I understand at that time there were tied to to maybe he was trying to hold the lead may be taken it into penalties, but against a team like Byron Munich that. has so much quality in their side and and is going to keep getting opportunities. You can't play defense if you can't play passive and it ultimately hurt them. And cost them this DFL supercup. Switch for Muneer in the same time in the sixty, seven, th minute, and that one I understand completely because muneer just looked. On effect ineffective in this game, he couldn't stop anything on defense. He wasn't really. Yeah. He had a perfect. He had an easy shot. He was wide open on the right wing he was coming in and he just completely missed the shot. Honestly as the PSG fan it. Kinda makes me feel like It it's fine. It's fine that we don't have them anymore team because I mean, he didn't look like he had any composure. He he he looked like he was out of his element in this game and. And that does not look good for him. But like I said, I, mean buying Munich pretty much dominated most of this game. The second half was definitely on Dortmund's favor but overall by Munich had more possession fifty, seven percent. They pass the ball, even better eighty seven percent of six, hundred, thirty passes while Dortmund completed seventy, eight percent of four hundred, seventy one passes but I mean that's expected. By Munich. Are Much better side much more quality side and much more organized side especially with Hansie Flick they're managing them. Yes. They had that four one loss to Hawthorn Heim, but I mean to happen it's football. In a best teams in the world lose they're not they're not GonNa win every single match. Four. No four once pretty bad. But still you know it happens but. Myron. Munich. Always look like the more dominant side and that was still the case in this game. Even though Dorman, did look better in the second half like I keep saying and they did I just. I didn't like some of the like they put. They put in Giovanni. RIINA too late same thing with Bellingham in the seventy second and seventy six minute respectfully bichette came in for Hummel's I guess what I'm trying to you know maybe get a goal towards the end but obviously that that backfired because old that those all came in a seventy you know in the middle in the mid seventy minutes. And that's when Joshua kimmage came through in the second minute and scored that ridiculous goal. It just. I don't know what else to say man low in Dallas key was kind of. Kind not seen I'm even though he kinda got that assist for today. So he got him open same thing with kimmage. He also got that pass there too but interpreted scoring goals but. That's the thing with with Lewandowski's he such a could. Striker that He. Doesn't need to score goals in order to be effective in this game. You know I it kind of feels like he has a quiet night but in the end, he still even though they don't count as assist, he had a big hand in both of those you know the first goal of the game were Toledo hit the post and then had to hit that rebound in he would have gotten that assists and same thing with kimmage who got his first shot rebounded herb you know saved. And then that ridiculous. That ridiculous falling on the floor like last minute shot to to you know to give the team the lead. Lohan. DOWSE gotta having both of those and he played an overall solid game just not what you'd expect from top top striker. But again, like I said, you know when even when you're not getting goals, what can you do to help the team? Those are when the best strikers show themselves and that's well now and Dowse you did in this game, he still was a really good link-up play player which he always has been. And got his team the right positions to score the goals and you know of course I like I always say when I talk about Lone Dusky, he has the talent around him to help him obviously but. Even when the pressure is on, even when he's got all the you know the the is on him he makes decisions. He makes the right decisions and that's what he did in this game. Towards the like in the beginning of the second half I kind of felt like. Gorman deftly came up with a much better intensity and by Munich definitely felt it. They they had more opportunities in their second half and you know we're getting more. They just couldn't get consistent shots. Dortmund only had seven shots to by Munich's eleven. They did have four on target and Byron had a seven on target. So I mean the the accuracy on the shots were there. By Dorman just didn't get enough of them and I feel like when you lose a guy like Holland. Obviously the they let him go in the sixty eighth minute the sub them off for Rainer which already talked about but it's just You lose a target men. Like. There's no surprise that when Byron Munich lost four one to two Hockenheim they sat. Lewandowski's Ercsi he was on the. On the bench obviously giving him some you know some rest. Because they felt like they could have beaten Hockenheim without without him but that just wasn't the case. Then by the time he came back in the rhythm just wasn't there for the team and obviously cost them three points. Now. By Munich made a few changes themselves I mean they brought him gone abby for Coleman, Kinda like shortly after the halftime. At it's kind of funny right after they made that substitution Holland scored that for that second goal. and. The thing is it's like. I feel like Dorfman definitely had opportunities. They sure had opportunities but I definitely like that the substitution Byron Munich made late in this game I mean even though the the to the ends Ercsi for though and dowse Seattle for. Martinez. Came after that you know that third goal. So they're obviously churches trying to hold on but they brought in Richard for hard I thought that really changed the game. Seventy six minute substitution and richards played while I mean not only got like fourteen fifteen minutes in this game he still played pretty well. And that's what you want from your substitutes coming in and adding having a hand in the game and he played well, he played well defensively and you know for Vard who still probably trying to get his legs on their him after not playing pretty much most of last season. You'd like what you're seeing you like what you see from pretty much your entire team. But what really impressed me about Byron? Munich is the fact that they were able to control the midfield in a big way. And that's what I said that in the last segment that I feel like that is going to be the key for them to really make a big charge in the Champions League once again. And that's why I said Thomas Miller is going to be the. Most, important player. 'cause he's GonNa be. He's GonNa to hold a big big part in them. You know managing that midfield and he did that in this game. But. Again, it's just like that collective effort from buying just everybody coming through and really helping out I mean obviously kimmage like I've said, already he's pro I mean, honestly you gotTa Start Looking at him as their best player it's not one top three. You know putting him in that same conversation with low in Taos ski in a newer. Who I mean by the way I mean. Newer after a lot of talk about him getting old and I mean I know I've said this and other shows is just it just needs to keep being said, this man gets saves when it's necessary. I mean obviously, it's always necessary about talking about in those pressure moments. Like when Erling Haaland one of the best young strikers is heading your way One v one, you need to get a stop. And that got that shot that shot at the end was on target. Yet. He puts his old mid out there and stops that ball from going in. I mean I don't know any other goalkeeper that makes such game winning safes like men while newer. I really don't. I really don't. It's just. He would have gotten out of the matrimony if it wasn't for for how dominant kimmage was in this game but. That's a fame and Kim up mental newer just. Always. Always comes through for his club when he needs it when they need it, it's just it's just one of those traits of his he's he's a he's a leader of men. It's just one of those things and. I would want him my tenny of course, anybody would want him on their team, but it's just. You know if even if I had the option to go with like a guy like John old block or guy like you know who who, else onto alley song, I'd still probably manoir my team because I feel like when when you know when it gets to, you know this team gets a counterattack and it's just you and newer. That attackers going to be a little scared. They're going GONNA be overthinking it because that guy has shown time and time again that he can get those Sabes. That's the guy one between the stakes. and. He just showed it again, this one and that is exactly why by Munich the get gets this victory three, two, I, mean of course, they don't get this victory without kitsch and his ridiculous diving shot but. Manuel will newer man just coming through every single game. It seems for Byron Munich and I feel like that's going to be the number one spot. You know that that's going to be like their number one advantage in most of the games that they play in the Champions League and the in the Bundesliga of course. But yeah. So that's going to wrap it up for this segment makes you guys stick around because when I come back, I'm going to be talking about the round of sixteen for the Katembo Cup just recapping all the games going on there.

Cup showdown between Borussia Dortmund Meyer Munich, and now we're GONNA be talking about the Cabal Cup round of sixteen, just going to recap the Games and then of course, look ahead to the quarterfinal draws. So let's get started with Tottenham versus Chelsea. Two teams that come into the season you know looking for answers I mean Chelsea obviously we've. Talked about them. Enough. You know having all these new transfers and so far has not turned out as good as they were hoping, and of course, Tottenham you know I've said they've looked like a complete mess so far this season but they have gotten some good signings in bail and young has already played for them. Bail has yet to play a match. So in this game, we had a A. Few interesting starts for Tottenham Lamella and bird wine started up top Harry Kane and Lucas more were on the bench They would eventually come in as a substitute but the beginning of this game seemed like it was all Chelsea You know they were getting more opportunities and it eventually led to a team burner goal in the nineteen minute and it was a really nice school I mean you. Absolutely making I think it was done Ghana completely miss on tackle and then just finding team O. Verner. streaking up the middle and he got a really nice goal through some through a lot of bodies it was like. Three guys in front of him, and that's that's what you need your top striker to do, and he did so and that was actually his first goal for Chelsea. So you know good for team Oh Bernard you know getting that goal but it was far from over. From point on kind of felt like Tottenham were controlling most of this game though Chelsea had most of the possession, it just felt like Tottenham were doing more with the ball when they had it and it they just weren't getting. The final ball they were hoping for eventually, they did get a goal towards the end of the game with requiem setting up Eric Lamelo with a very solid cross literally leaving Lamelo Wide Open You know he he had he controlled very well with this trust and then just scored it right past Mendy who didn't even mention what is it? What is the name I? Think? It's Eduardo Mendy Yeah. At no Edward Mendy the brand new goalkeeper signing who looks to possibly be taking over campus spot this. That's yet to be shown because you know of course is just a cup match a could be seen as a backup goalkeeper but. After the game Frank, Lampard saying that he that he was impressed with what Mendy did even though when they go to when they went to penalties at the end of the match at the at the end, the regulation, he did not stop a single penalty. Tournament five for five Chelsea in the four for five with Mason Mount completely missing the shot at the missing the you know the goal at the end. Going wide left. Laura. Sweat the right way but it didn't matter because Mason mound just completely missed the target and he's going be living with that for a little while but man I mean for the for the most. Of this penalty. A Tottenham went left like Eric Dear Eric Lamelo appear Emil Heisbourg and Lucas more all went to the left side of the goal and many just kept on choosing right. He just wasn't getting it and then the many he chooses left. Harry. Kane. The last penalty kicker went right. Of course it that's just the way it is. That's just the way it is in these penalty kicks. You know you pick the right way and you're looking good. You pick the wrong way and you look like a fool and Mendy. Just couldn't read the Tottenham kickers. For Mason Mount. I mean you've got to feel bad for him Obviously he was looking great last season and he's Kinda got off. To a slow start this season and that penalty kind of a pin amazes all of that. That's to be hanging on his head for a little while now because now Chelsea are out of the Cabal Cup Tottenham move on and will be facing off against Stoke City in the next round. Obvious. Talking to a little more detail you know at the end of all these games. So now we're gonNA move onto Newcastle versus Newport County and honestly after watching new county a lot of these games I believe they took on Wofford in the last round they looked very strong i. know it could probably the competition they were taking on. But they looked very good against their against the competition they were taking. Their facing and I was actually rooting form I was hoping that they you know may be the surprise team of the tournament and at the start of this game, a look would be because tristen Abraham scored in the last round scored once again, just five minutes into the game off a rebound and it was a nice goal at that. it. It just looked like their activity was you know the little too much for Newcastle to handle in the beginning of this game. But shortly after that, they would pretty much dominate this game Newcastle at about sixty five percent possession and they had twice more than twice as many shots as Newport county, and they only had two shots on target newborn twelve shots for two shots on target for Newport County for Newcastle Twenty, seven shots to ten. On target and you know obviously a huge difference there, and that pretty much made the game. I mean, you got some solid contributions from from a lot of your team I mean Kalem Kalem, Wilson came in for a mirror. I'm wrong late in the game and obviously he's been having a great season and showed it once again. But man that goal by John Joe Shelby late in the game eighty, seven, th minute to tie the game up was just. was just beautiful. I mean to to speak out the Newport county gold defender time, and time. Again, it was like at least three four fake outs in that game and. Yet once he once he made them fall and he knew he was going for goal I mean that's he knew he was go from the minute he got it. He was not given that ball up he wanted to take take that shot and send this team into penalties and that's what he did. You know just inside the box from the left side, kick the all the way to the top right corner and it was just perfect. You couldn't have asked for anything better and sent them into into the penalties where it was a little bit. Shakey at the START I mean Kayla most scored the first one for Newcastle Than Joe Lean, throw Jillian done my score a missed. The second one while Newport county scored their first three penalties after that Ryan Taylor missed his fourth for Newport. and it was tied going. It was tied after five kicks. So they headed into sudden death Shaun longstaff what came up for Newcastle and scored you calmly. Past. Past the goalkeeper didn't even didn't even think about he literally lake as the as the whistle was blown he was already running in. So you know where he wanted to go and then Brandon Guber just absolutely sailed his shot over the crossbar. No chance for it to go in even the analysts was you know the commentator was saying I don't like that short running taken and it was he was right. It obviously didn't give them enough time to get his feet on the ball and he completely missed it so. or off into the next round into the quarter-finals, Katembo Cup and they will be they have a favorable matchup they're going up against Brentford in the next. Round. All. Right. So now we're going to be talking about the Manchester City versus Burnley match were Manchester City defeated Burnley three nil and honestly in this game, it was all Raheem Sterling, I mean the speed and pace of this man was absolutely giving them trouble like the entire game, they could not deal with it. They should have had like four goals in this game to be honest he did end up getting two goals and an assist which I don't really feel like that was an assist I mean technically he got a he got a full on the ball, but then it got up deflection off the defender and for on Torres scored at the end it was sixty, sixty, five minute but. In the end Ryan Sterling just it was just too much for Burnley to handle Honest I gotta give props to the goalkeeper for Burnley He absolutely kept them in this game more than they should have been What was it? Bailey. Peacock ferrall he played extremely well and save a lot of shocks like all lot of shots if I go back to this, he saved a total of he saves five. They should have had like eight goals in this game easy because you know those are some really nice saves from him but again, this this all comes back to rocking sterling who just played. So well, the pace that he had just continued across cause problems for the defense in those two goals he had were impart of his pace and not because he outran the defense, what it was that his pace before these two goals that he had. Would cause so much problems for so many problems for them that they would overrun and feel like they had to over commit and it would leave him open in the middle. It happened twice one in the thirty for thirty fifth minute were bent many found him, and then again in the forty ninth where he was found by Fernandes Tortoise I, mean. Not much. Else can be said about this except that Manchester City. Looked really good. In this one they want again with like an academy product done Carson and Bill Cole. Cole Palmer. they went with Coal Palmer in this one instead of. Going with their full normal starting eleven. But of course I mean, it didn't matter because they have. They have so much quality down the rest of the lineup. You know they had Mores Daego, the Bruin Walker LaPorte for. they did go with American goalkeeper Zach Stephan again because obviously they're going within the League Cup but. Overall great game for Manchester City and they will be facing arsenal in the next round. Now, let's get into the Manchester United Versus Brighton match which ended in a three nil win for menu. Now, to start this game, I don't feel like Manchester United played to their best potential, but they were still solid. They obviously have more quality than Brighton. I have been in behind brightened in Brighton's corner pretty much all season I called them to be the surprise of the year and they've done pretty well so far. But in this game, they clearly looked outmatched I mean one Mata I mean what a game this guy had in in this one just continues to show his quality even though he's going up in age age is just another man and he just showed it in this one setting it setting up that first goal for Scott Mc, Tommy a just a perfectly lobbed know free kick. To to him for an easy header obviously, of course, white keeping you know onsite at the. Was it was obviously helping but then that second goal I, I feel like that second goal is what Manchester United needs to be looking for all season. It was such a nice team goal one Mata obviously controlled most of it and he then he ended he like he started off by by working on the right side and then moving into the left and then just a nice pass into Donnie Vanderbeek who then gave abry uniform touch like I'd pass to one Mata, who was making the run, and then he just faked out a few br Brenton defenders and. Scored the goal I mean, it was a really nice team goal all honestly an all around great game from a menu, and then of course that last goal what a beautiful be full free-kick from Paul, Papa iming. Just it was perfectly lined up I mean and he just he hitting the top left of the post to get it in get it three three. Oh I I mean that that's pod man that's published showing his quality and getting a gophers team when they need not when they needed but it's just. Kind of just to settle things down just a show. Yeah. Were Manchester United were here and we WANNA, make the most of our time here in the Gut About Cup, and that is why they're moving on and Brighton are. So they will be facing Everton in the next round that's going to be an exciting went to talk about. Next. We got Everton versus West Ham United, and in this game I mean it was another Dominic Calvert Lewin show I mean this another Hattrick for him in this game obviously having a career season already and I mean. What else can I say? He's just He's he's a sharp shooter man. He got the first goal in the eleventh minute Michael Keane. Giving him that. Given him that assist and I'll tell you what Michael Keane has been really underrated so far this season it's been a big part whatever timoth done, and of course I mean they beat Everton they beat West Ham United for one just to let you guys know they absolutely dominated this game. Richarson has been probably the best player on the team gets goal in the fifty six minute courtesy of homicide Jesus who has been an excellent signing form and then covered Lewin gets goals at the end of the game six minutes apart. Just. Dominates West Ham united in this one. They do get a consolation goal right after halftime they got they got to. They got to one one with Robert snodgrass goal from Felipe Anderson, but it just wasn't gonna cut it because literally ten minutes later they get that retrial single and. Everton just had way more quality in this game and eventually West Ham we're going to fine. We're going to go up against a tough competition and the we're going to have to play near perfect football and they just did not in this one, and that is why Everton are often to the next round and they will be going up against Manchester United just like I just said salt next week, get Brentford vs Fulham. Brentford. Continue their surprising ron defeating Fulham three nil I mean, what can I say about this group as they continue to the feed, you know to tip defeat anybody who's in front of them I. It's gotTa be hard I mean and they get a favorable matchup. I mean they get to go Newcastle. They don't have to go against Everton Man United Arsenal. They don't they don't have to go Manchester City they get Newcastle so they have a really good chance of making it into the next round getting to the semifinal of the car about cup? A championship side I it's not like that's uncommon but I mean, that's still not expect it every year. And Brentford looked dominant in this game. Getting a goal from Marcus fours to from Saieed Ben Rama. And and just never looked back Fulham I I mean. Not a great show I mean the they get this favourable matchup going up against Brentford. You know they're in the premier league they're getting their you know solid competition weaken weak out and they just can't show up for this one. don't know what to say about Fulham I mean. They're proving my predictions before the season right and. Ammon and they're they're not moving on Brentford are and they'll be taking on Newcastle in the quarterfinal. Next we got Stoke City versus Aston Villa, and we got stoke city once again. Another championship side up setting up Premier League side in villa one nothing. Sam Vokes with a solid goal from a Thompson assist I-. Tops has been just dealing out, assists left and right in the tournament and I mean, and they win this game they looked solid in this game pretty much dominated the match Let me get some of these stats here real quick. They. Technically, they should probably lost his game because Aston Villa obviously the more the the higher quality side. You know the they had the problem is they didn't have gorillas playing in the scheme. And that that hurt them. Really she's not playing. They didn't even have a what's his name. Didn't even have Douglas Lewis. All walking was coming off the bench. It's like they felt that they were going to get past this team with ease. And it hurt them in the. Ending their tournament hopes. And now stoke city get a quarter-final matchup against Tottenham? Good luck term that one. And now last. Bush certainly, not least we get an arsenal versus Liverpool. Fun Match I. Mean They've shown to be able to go back and forth. This certainly wasn't that ended in an open draw in regulation. But it went to sudden death in penalties. And Liverpool just could not get it done. honestly in part it's it's kind of their fault. I mean they did not have all of their top players playing in this one I. Mean you had Saleh but. He didn't play Andrew Robertson. You know they didn't have. What is it Monay in there? and. They thought they could make it through and they couldn't they didn't have. They didn't even have been used in there then even sell them in. And they did southern why now them for short late in the game but And they just didn't have enough man Amino up top they did have Salah but that was pretty much the only real like you know top side I mean they had van Dyke and defense, and the obviously the his thing they got draw the. You know the. Goal but. Arsenal. Sockeye had Chaaka KONJAC. You know they brought in like Zet late in the Game Maitland Niles. Didn't even have a bombing. This was a very bad loss for Liverpool man a very bad loss to lose to arsenal. Once again, this is like their third loss to arsenal this season or was a second because I know for sure they lost the community shield to arsenal early in the year and now losing the cut about cup to Arsenal arsenal Liverpool's number not in the Premier League obviously. Because that's when it really counts but I mean arsenal man they get the job done and they move onto the next round against Manchester City. And I'll let me quickly just talk about those quarter-final matches I mean arsenal vs Manchester City. That's going to be a really fun to watch because now you're in the quarterfinals. To bring out their best stuff especially when they're taking on tough competition like this and I'm really excited to see a Balmy, Yang. Lacaze. William and not to mention a wounded, even play against Liverpool. I'm excited to see those guys play against a Manchester City squad that are obviously looking to win everything. Now with stoke city going up against Tottenham. I, it's going to be hard for stoke city to continue this wild ride this unprecedented ride and Tottenham look really good against Chelsea. even though it went to penalties I. taught him were the better side in this game? And I would not. I would be extremely surprised if so stoke city complete another upset and defeat Tottenham. But we'll just have to wait and see and now this next match Brentford worse is Newcastle. I. Mean. I I don't know man I do not I could see Brentford Co through again man I I'm not extremely confident Newcastle, I know they got some great young players that have been playing well Kalem Wilson but I I, see Brentford who had been very dominant in the gut about cup. Go on to the semifinal that would be a hell of. Of A story right there and of course, we got Manchester United versus, Everton. Another very, very exciting matchup that I cannot wait to see. I'm in love with Everton this season I mean with the changes that they've made to their midfield and with how dominant covered Lou and has been an Richarson and they got a lot of quality in their side, and of course, they got Pickford a goalkeeper. So overall, they have a very solid team, but Manchester United are also very high quality and I would not be surprised if they go with their full eleven the next. especially. Taking on a top team Everton and them seeing just being one away from being in the in the top four. So I'm very excited to see those play out I'll definitely be watching them and I'll be talking about them afterwards. So stay tuned for that guys. So that's going to wrap it up for this segment. Make sure you stick around because when I come back I'm going to be talking about being tap ten goalkeepers of all time. This is your ultimate stopper everything sports, the golden state media concepts, sports podcast should I say more from the NFL Melby, the NBA MMA all in here golden state media concepts, sports podcast listen. Before. Welcome back everyone to the last part of the show where we're going to be talking about the top ten goalkeepers of all time. Now, before I start getting into these legendary names, I just want I say that. I'm sure you guys already know. I. Am not. You know a historian of soccer football whatever you WANNA call it you know I haven't seen most of these guys play maybe like one or two actually three total guys on this list I have seen play and for the rest I'm just going off of what I've been seeing online in a combination of stats. You know ones that I can find because a lot of these guys played way back in the day so. Just bear with me. You know I'm obviously this might not be like yours so just. Let me not even if you guys agree, let me know in the comments section what you guys think are the top ten goalkeepers of all time. So let's get started with my list. With number ten being Edwin van der Sar mostly known for his time at I imax and Manchester United. He boast a nearly an eighth in eighty percent save percentage of point ninety three goals allowed per ninety minutes a hundred and sixty eight clean sheets in three hundred, seventy, nine matches of the stats I could find he had way more with Iraq. So definitely, those sheets possibly in the two hundred plus in like nearly. Qassam around five hundred matches played. So man, he's got a lot of. This guy had one four era era division champions, championships of four. Premier League Championships to Champions League titles. He was a Dutch football goalkeeper of the year four separate times and was considered the best European goalkeeper two times now from these from the. The highlights that I saw vander. SAR. Was An extremely long goalkeeper and had amazing reflexes I mean that's pretty much going to be the case for most of the guys on this list and pretty much all of them 'cause I. Mean you're not going to be a top ten goalkeeper of all time without having. catlike reflexes but I the emperor vendor, the one thing I got from him was the fact that he was such a long goalkeeper and usually when you're very long, you know very tall you're not as nimble athletic. He still had that. So Edwin van der Sar absolutely with all the accolades that he has deserves to be in my top ten goalkeepers of all time next and number nine. We have the first guy that I have remembered watching eager casillas. he played for. The Spanish goalkeeper having mainly played for Real Madrid in his prime, and then of course, towards the end of his career has played for Porto This man has done it all one at all six time domestic league titles three time Champions League titles. Obviously all with. Real. Madrid Anne the twenty ten fee for World Cup So he has pretty much. Won It in every way he possibly can, and I know some people might say you know they don't like this kind of selection here. They don't feel like he did enough but I mean The the ACCOLADE speak for themselves. He was also the five-time fi five pro world eleven and the six time you way for team of the year. So he has been recognized as the best goalkeeper in in so many different ways and the stat speak for themselves as well. Two, hundred, thirty, eight clean sheets in six hundred, twenty, six matches played nearly a seventy six save percentage. I mean. This man has done it all and. I mean recently retired. So I mean I was at least able to seek a CS for a little while I knew he was just an absolute monster for Real Madrid. When he was there the move that he took to to to Porto you know Skyla. Kinda sucked away it happened but you know it was kind of time for him to leave but Yemen eager gaseous number nine best goalkeeper of all time number eight is the first that I definitely do not remember at all but people were saying that he was the first German goalkeeper to really set the tone for Germany in that position Sepp Maier of course, like almost all of the best German goalkeeper played for Byron Munich and He won the World Cup in nineteen seventy four the UEFA. European Championship. One time was four time Bundesliga champion three time Champions League winners and was the German footballer of the Year Three Separate Times set. Meyer. He's actually was known for his a weird you know. What was it up appearance and long shore? It's always had long hair of and people always Kinda like knew him as that guy but. He was one of the best German goalkeepers of all time not as good as a couple of guys coming up later in this actually one coming up next but he definitely was considered the German goalkeeper that set the tone count laid the path for these guys coming up. So set Meyer absolutely deserves to be in the top ten he comes in at number eight so. I actually could not find any stats for him I'm sure they're out there. But from what I looking I could not find him so. he's still one of the best those accolades on speed you know speak for themselves and now we're GONNA be talking about number seven. This fan I definitely known I've talked about him plenty on this list at non this list but on this show man well newer. Yes. This man has been an unbelievably great goalkeeper for years started off with shock and and obviously now has been with the the Bundesliga champion Byron Munich for years now, and he has lived up to that You know goalkeeper or you know Byron Munich goalkeeping legend legacy any as definitely held held it really really well, has two hundred, fifty, two clean. Sheets and five hundred and forty eight matches has won seven Bundesliga titles to Champions League titles and could possibly looking at more, which would I think would get him even her further up this list didn't want World Cup as well in two thousand fourteen was the does listed the UEFA team of the year three times German male Footballer of the Year Two Times. FIFA five Pro World Eleven, four times I mean Manuel newer. One of the best to ever do it probably considered past his prime but still I, mean, you guys know ever even on this episode even on this show I've talked about him. He has. Always seemed to get those saves when it matters and I'm sure a lot of these top goalkeepers of all times have done that as well. But. This guy I've actually seen it myself. So maybe you could see that as a little favoritism, but man, he definitely deserves to be in the top ten if he's not in your top ten I i. don't know who you're putting them in for I mean I know there's a lot of other good Goalkeepers that you can slide in here but men one Moore needs to be in your top ten. So. He comes in at number seven absolutely, well deserve and now we're going to be moving on to Dino Zoff. At number six mainly known for his time at Napoli in Juvie this Italian goalkeeper has. Pretty much done a lot of winning throughout his career. Literally up until the end when he won the nineteen eighty, two people World Cup at the age of forty. The oldest winner to ever win the World Cup and he was a big part of it. So. you know a it started off when he won the European Championship in nineteen, sixty eight and then he Literally continued to be as good as possible up until his the age of forty and I know. That happens with goalkeeper but to win the World Cup at that age. I mean I usually look at a goalkeeper. Them to be you know very outgoing very. Crazy on the pitch zoff was not that he was the most calm and unflappable goalkeeper like ever. was was a perfect leader for club and country for decades and. Quick Low fat here he had be international record I think he still has the international record of not conceding a goal in one, thousand, one, hundred and forty three minutes think about that one, thousand, one, hundred, forty, three minutes without conceding a goal. That's legendary stuff he deserves to be here but he is not the best Italian on this list I'm pretty sure you guys know who I'm thinking of but a is off is also one six Sadia titles to cope. Italia. Winner In a UEFA Cup winner as well. So zoff has been wanted in the big stage one into domestic league and he is one of the best goalkeepers of all time. So now we are getting into the top five, and here I'm going to be talking about another Italian goalkeeper have been able I, have been very lucky to watch in Gianluigi boof all. This man has won twice as many domestic league titles as off won the World Cup is well the only thing that I would say about him. Is that he did not win the Champions League. he had chance would juve few times. They just never were able to get over the hump with him there. I mean we still haven't even with Rinaldo there but. befalling had also made it to the UEFA team of the year five separate times was the name book best fief amends goalkeeper in two thousand seventeen was the two thousand to two and three UEFA club Footballer of the year. I mean this man has accolades over accolades and of course, when the fearful World Cup in two thousand, six with Italy that was huge any if he wouldn't have one that I probably wouldn't have put him over his off but with that win, he deserves it. He. Also as a seventy, seven percent save percentage of allowed just about point eight goals allowed per ninety minutes two, hundred, Eighty, eight clean sheets in six, hundred, thirty, five matches I mean the man's a legend. You know he played for my favorite team PSG for a year even though it didn't go well but. It was nice to see him there and overall, he has just had an amazing career and certainly deserves to be on any top ten list of all time for. Goalkeepers. Next and number four. We have a another man that I do I've never seen but again, he gets a lot of praise throughout the Internet and I saw some of this highlights and you know he did some amazing things in his career. England goalkeeper Gordon. Banks. He won't be nine, thousand, nine, hundred, sixty, six, World Cup was isn't it was named the fee for a goalkeeper of the year six separate occasions. A Matt's you especially when he was around the same time as you know another really great goalkeeper coming up Unfortunately, the problem with Gordon Banks at the problem but just you know the thing that holds them back a bit is affect the he is career was cut a bit short. In his early thirties he got in a car accident and he lost his right eye and was forced to retire I mean that really sucks especially when he made what is considered probably the greatest save of all time when he saved Bilas header with his fingertips in the nineteen, Seventy World Cup. I mean even billy said he thought it was going in. Banks thought it was going in and. It's widely considered the greatest of all time. So so that one hundred percent gets a lot of brownie points get some over a lot of players on this list, and you know another thing that kind of holds them back is the fact that he only played for Leicester City and Stoke City throughout his career. So he didn't get a chance to play for a top club and and couldn't get any of those top club honours like the Champions League you know so. He if he would have won if you would have been, you know one of done that I could see be on top of either of the next two guys coming up on this list but he was he was probably the best anticipating Ford balls better than pretty much anyone over had overall great goalkeeping skills. So Gordon Banks number four on this list. Absolutely deserved. Next we got Peter Michael at number three. I mainly know his son Kasper Schmeichel for Leicester City who has obviously been a great goalkeeper, not nowhere near as good as his father, but you know still solid goalkeeper but man I wish I could have seen what Peter Schmeichel did I mean I did see some highlights and wildwood this guy does lays his body out better than more than anybody I can even of his was his reaction time was is literally ridiculous and and he's got the accolades on top of that to to to go with it. He won he won the. Premier League five separate times was the premier league player of the season in ninety five, ninety six won the Champions League Ninety eight ninety nine and was a three time Danish male footballer of the Year So. I mean Sh- Michael aside from being a great leader kind of when when he was back there Manchester United fans just felt so so comfortable actually read this one common online says when you had Peter Schmeichal behind the sticks. You felt as comfortable as daughter getting tucked in bed by Batman. Batman as your father of course. I. Mean maybe that came out wrong but. I kind of laughed at that I was like. All right so that that Kinda makes me feel understand how good Pierce Michael was I mean you just felt really good when I saw his highlights. That doubled down on that I. mean he was. Great, he can make any save you needed him to, and that is why he comes in as the third best goalkeeper of all time. Now. Next we have the best German goalkeeper all time you should know who this is Oliver Kahn. An. Honestly, when I was first getting into soccer my manager at this place I was working at. told, me about this guy, told me look at his highlights you're gonna WanNa see them this guy was an absolute monster and is right man. This guy was a beast like your be like he would put fear into attackers is because I mean the intensity and he played with was on another level more than anybody else on this list and his stats are also really great. I, think get all of them. 'cause I couldn't really find them. I mean, honestly the FBI referenced the isn't like the best website to find stats however his accolades. Were top top I mean eight time Bundesliga titles He won the Champions League in two thousand, two, thousand one and an who can forget his triple penalty kick saves against Valencia. In that penalty shootout to win the Champions League title easily the best moment of his career the only thing that holds them back and that he was not able to get was a world. Cup Win. And I, honestly, if he would have gotten that World Cup when he might have been able to challenge number one on this list, however, it just was not enough to get over that Hump because I mean the next guy is just legendary. I mean people even though I never watched some people just never stopped talking about before I get to him. Let me just continue with what Oliver I mean. He was also a two time German male Footballer of the Year made the two thousand and two for World Cup All Star Team and won the two thousand, two fee for World Cup golden bowls. So. Overall RECON had an amazing career a able to win that champions champions. League. Title like pretty much off his hands I. Mean, that's that's it right there. Dude to get three penalty kick saves to give your club the title win and it doesn't get any bigger than that for a goalkeeper. So huge props to Oliver Kahn and his. lustrous career. Next at number one last and certainly obviously, not least the best goalkeeper by honestly for some reason by Mile I've never watched them. I saw some highlights but is Josh in the Black Spider. Spent his entire career with Dynamo Moscow. achieved seventy eight caps for the Soviet. Union some. Couldn't find any stats on except for this one post at said that some claim that he was he has nearly five hundred clean sheets and over eight hundred matches. Estimated to have saved two-thirds of penalties taken against him. He won the Soviet top league five times only goalkeeper to win balloon the or which he won nineteen sixty three. And he became the first goalkeeper ever. I. Mean, of course he he played back in the sixty. So he was you know it wasn't a illustrious position to have, but he was the first goalkeeper goalkeeper to impose his authority on the defense, which is now considered normal on your it's necessary. I mean he was the best car in those few highlights that I saw him. He was an absolute monster coming out of off of his line and like punching out crosses and and grabbing the and you know just, and of course his. what is it his his reaction time in his ability to to just stop shots? Is. Second to none on this list. He also, he appeared in the World Cup from Nineteen Fifty, eight to nineteen seventy was not able to win that title. You know the World Cup but he did win the European Championships in France in nineteen sixty and was the runner up in nineteen sixty four. He also won a gold medal in the nineteen, fifty, six Olympics so. You Levy Shing. Just, absolutely killing it. You know throughout his career and is widely considered the greatest goalkeeper of all time so I, I could not put him there. Seem to have made this list irrelevant at that point. So Levy Ocean number one goalkeeper of all time. Hope you guys enjoyed that list please let me know in the comments section. What you guys think was wrong there I mean who who would you guys have in your top ten? Keepers of all time.

Season there is no doubt that the idea is very appealing to the fans, but to have him on his own is simply unrealistic, say club sources due to his lack of experience, but could be possible if it were in tandem with a more experienced coach alongside him and names that have been mentioned Southampton's row Hasenhuttl. Of course, he's just signed an extension to his deal with Southampton or Or indeed Ralph Randy Aku has already had two spells in guests and catching me, though is said to be in negotiations currency with Milan about taking that next season right time to move on. Let's take a look at this weekend's Tainan City in a little bit more detail at Anita Fourteenth. Ever meeting between the two clubs around Madrid and Aiba, Madrid one ten drawn to lost just the one. Lost Their last season in this fixture where about one three nearly for the first time in the history of meetings Madrid hadn't actually scored against the EIBAR as well one of those days, where despite dominating possession once again they'd have willing to these sixty plus percentage. Points of it I had nearly three times. The number of on target is Real Madrid. Madrid to do usually school goals in this fixture thirty two in all to eyebrows eight. Back on familiar territory with a four nil victory in Aiba in November. To. Ben's One each for Ramos and. Coach Mandela's record isn't great against remedied either. He's lost fifteen of the twenty games that he's played against them during the course of his managerial career. He's one one with VR. Lead back in November of two thousand eight, and the other was the victory loss season. He has as well injured some miserable days in Madrid twice. He's beaten by seven goals the last time when he was with also soon back in twenty eleven one specific area the Sudan has been working on with his players is avoiding costly late Gilles eight times this season in the League and Champions League. They've conceded goals in the last thirteen. Thirteen minutes games in in the league. Eh, it has cost them no fewer than twelve points now. Hi, Bostock, this match round down in Sixteenth Place in twenty seven points relegations, still a big threat for them form to is very poor. Just one victory lost eight games and eat three of those games they found. She scored goals in in open play away from home. They failed to school in seven games. They've won just one away league this season, not against against back in November fourteen different places of being on the scoresheet, said this season, two veterans of the squad talk scoring jots, chilly and international fabulous.

Kristen press playing in europe. A of all powerful soft power exports in the world right now to hear it as apart with the one and only keyarena my guest. Today is the millie. Bobby brown american football a seventeen year old prodigy excelling on the global stage at an age when his pay as well a thinking about high school. Proms and who by seeing time and space differently. Two men mortals has become the worthy inheritor of dusty rhodes nickname see american dream well commend in blazes the pride and joy of my adopted hometown bedford. New york. Fire the mighty dormant mr g arena. I'm happy to be here. Chiro joined off month in august. Did you have a sentence. This is going to be a breakout year. For one thing. That dorman does really well here. Is that easier young guys into it last year and a lot of good experiences and i've played in every competition and made a lot of appearances but the season they feel like i'm ready and so do i so personally. I just really wanted to step up from last year and team anna bigger role you a third generation professional footballer your grandfather. Miguel in ocean tina yet. That cloudy captain america. He was the best thing to happen to sunderland until sunday. Until i die. Your mother danielle played for the us women's national team. No less an expert. The mia hamm said she could ball. What parts of your game you get from your dad. What parts of you gained you get from. I think i get the best of both of them to be honest because my dad was pretty fluid on the ball and good technique and can control the game my mom. There's more her runner. She is on the way which played young and then solely when i was thirteen fourteen fifteen. I picked up the technique and then put them together and then the commas and a good one so far football is in your genes like baldness is in mind you were two thousand tape you dad then at sunderland before his move to manchester city you came back to america with the family in two thousand seven for the most part. You had a typical american childhood by having a dad who competed at the highest levels of european football. Can you talk about the towards pro soccer in the rain a household it was never forced first of all. That's where i wanna start. I think if. I wanted to be something else. I wanted to be something else. And they were being completely happy but i was a little bit difficult to be anything else when the hell around me and other resources to be able to take my game to a high level so it's just in our blood three generations now and i'm sure it'll continue in the future you and name. Giovanni after the great gio from broncos to via data rages who will your footballing heroes growing up. When you're a kid who did you watch jay and say i want to be just like them. My favorite players come to bruin ever since the wolfsberg days. I really liked him. That's when i kinda recognized still young but the last five or six years. He's been a city he's been one of the best in the world so meal and be like him. You don't really do skills but we're effective and we're direct and that somebody is really try to model my game after. I'm a little bit similar bill and character. Those two guys. I really look to in contrast to take things from their game. April two thousand seventeen you just fourteen years of age. Playing for 'em y. Cfc's under sixteen team at the generation. You were years younger than your teammates and incredible physical mental gap of age. But you lead your team to the title and then then vp. Along the way. Did you find the game just came quicker easier that you just spoke different footballing language to those around you when you're so young you don't really know exactly. I think you're more living in the moment and kind of enjoying the time you know. Those are my best friends back there so every day i would just go to practice. Enjoy it and laugh. Have fun and within the week and i play and score a few goals are getting the system we win. And we want to national championships. Once i got into the national team around fifteen and sixteen inside best player on the field against brazil or england can take my game to the next level. Become a really good prospect. You were being scouted by every major european club. All the big trauma league sides by munich. Axe everton would change. You had to pick and you choose dormant me back to that decision on. What doorman presented you the made you decide to take your talents to signal to do. There is a little bit of an aspect of being the biggest fish in the sea versus. Maybe a smaller fish in the is a history of giving young guys. Chances than belly pool assoc now central and young talent set of came here and really taking their game next level in. That was wanting nesta for me. Did you chat to christian pulisic about his pathway at dormant. What did he tell you a little bit. But when i talked a little bit more off the field stuff of course. We're talking about playing the guys on the team. But i think he understands. It's not easy when you come here. A young kid. There's tough days lonely days. Yeah he told me that it was going to happen. You know i'm willing to sacrifice thursdays komo dreamed become a really good player as incredible gio. You were sixteen when you moved a racing junior in high school who didn't speak german moving a world away about to play with men that thrive in europe. What was his advice to you. Is you made the jump into. The unknown is a little bit different for him because he was twenty when he went over and he had my mom and they're living together somebody else but yeah he said. Don't be afraid to ask questions and don't be afraid to try new things because this is so different for you and you know people will understand that your family's out here and you have no friends here so people who understand people want to help you. You know they really want you here so try to be yourself and work your way into the first team keep on working take it day by day and enjoy every moment. You initially joined the club's under teens. It's often said that it's around this aid. Seventeen that the european play. It develops for quicker than the american. These are the viacom years. Can you describe the extent to which the coaching in germany. The tactical preparation was a step up for you from the united states. The biggest thing is honestly the competition that you have paying for under nineteen side. We'll play in nineteen team in our league but their first team was in the third division or second division but they still have all ambitions to make it pro. They can still sit in a box and they still really wanna win in. They're still competitive. And they give us tough games in america score one goal than the team just gives up and then we beat them easier easily and then they'd want to go home and just chill play fortnite or something so don't take away. My fortnight broke but within six. You've played you way into training the doorman i now american football. Is it go to europe. They all talk about the culture shock of bundesliga locker room. Not just the language but the culture of football that discipline the cutthroat no-nonsense competition in training growing men. You a kid for minutes for their livelihood. How did you experience that. It's a little bit more competitive. Do not as friendly here. But it's in a very professional way and it is guys jobs and if they see a young kid coming they're not going to be always nice to or they're not gonna do this to make you feel good because this is what they do to take care of their families. So it's understandable and more serious reaction to miss shots to blow in decisions. The stakes so much higher the scrutiny the media millions of fans watching every wrong run every miss past much more unforgiving than america where such a young football culture. We'll say intimidating feeing to busy being young and excited to know that you're supposed to be afraid. I think the first few sessions when you're in the locker room with margaritas and matt's homos and central and and these guys of course you're living nervous but i think once you step on the field you can let your abilities takeover and slowly. I was able to get more comfortable with the group and play my game a little bit more and more generating eighteenth twenty twenty. You made your first team debut as a second half substitute against augsburg at seventeen years and sixty six days old youngest american ever to play in the bundesliga when you stepped on that field take me through what went through your mind in that moment you like watch out world. It comes gio. Did you feel nerves a fan. I think i was really excited. I was doing really well done in nineteen in the fall so i felt like maybe i could go a little little bit earlier but once you step on the field for a few seconds. Uruguay seventeen playing for door. Does that often. So i was a little bit nervous in the beginning was almost going back to the way that they nourish you here and really bring you in so make it easy for me. Then those moments when you do when you're seventeen when you think oh my god. I'm one that film of champions league like an ea sports fifa referee any doubt in the back of your mind that you have what it takes to compete in thrive. I've never really doubted myself. I don't think there's ever been doubt. I think that's most important thing for young players. You need to be confident. You need to believe in yourself or else these guys will be able to censor. They'll be oh. This kid doesn't feel confident. There's no way is going to be able to make it at a young age or even later. If he's not confidence conferences has been in my game. You became the youngest american ever to score in the bundesliga when you netted your first stunning goal for dortmund age. Seventeen years and eighty three days. Sure no one's told you this before but christian pulisic scored his first goal seventeen years and two hundred and twelve days. Pulisic comparisons are inevitable when you watch christie and destroy the manchester city battlelines handedly. What does it make you think about your own potential. And what's possible. Knowing that he was in your shoes two seasons just all americans and makes us believe that we can top. He was in a very similar position. That i was. I think i just continue where. I'm confident that i can take my game to eventually to reach us level on but i know he's gonna get even better and i still to improve on so you can keep on going from here tradition. The american play as you. Clint dempsey's you brian. Mcbride's you cloudier raynor's. They've talked about experiencing a stigma in the coaches and players in europe because they were american and seen as lesser these to say the american football player has to work twice as hard to prove themselves. You relate to them not anymore. I don't think so. I think christian really really pave the way for us. We're going to be completely honest without him. It'd be way more difficult for us in the boonies z and he sees barcelona. I think five years ago wouldn't have been possible. Even if your talent was the same level by christian done so much for your soccer in general and his paving the way for a lot of us and he's the one who's really stunned this new generation of exciting soccer. whatever pressure you are experiencing. We don't say on the outside. The chemistry developed with twenty year old destroyer of souls hurling. Helen the two of you. You like jimmy. Butler and tyler herro. Does it feel like an unspoken footballing language between the pair of you light. You know where he's going to be before he's even there. We came to the i team at the same time and really. We're on the same team the first session that we both together in the winter training camp and spraying last year and ever since. Then he's really just been drilling in my head he said. Pass me a ball score now. It's where my head runs. And he's faster than these guys. They're still a few more times. I think i could have got one or two more system. We ever really chemistry. He's also heitman in a post-match press conference he told the world about you. I called them the american dream before and that's true he was you know he's seventeen years old and what is doing on the pictures day. Today is amazing so he has a huge huge future in front of and all. That isn't enough because you're too young to drive. He also gives you right. It's like a giant. Norwegian uber driver. Talk about what you've learned from him about football and the life of a football more than anything is just the work ethic he has every day is the first one to be in. Well last wants to leave so he's always taking care of his buddies always in the ice baths he's always in the jimmy's these things that can take his game to the next level keeping healthy. Because that's obviously the most boring thing. If you're healthy you can play. And that's where you can show the world where you can do is take me into the ice bats. Say when i didn't want to call their. He brought me when i was a little bit too lazy that day. So i think it's those things where he's kinda take me under his wing and told me to do a few things. I didn't want to that would help in the long run scoring for firm racking up patrick's process receiving standing ovations you leave the fielding glory when you're at home chevy to sit on the couch and just shake your head in the stuntmen and feel like i can't believe a sense of shock surprise. How marvel comic book hero. S roy has been to. You just feel normal. I don't think this would really feel normal to anywhere you just the way. The start of the season gone so far in the end of last season. You know when. I get home that day and i put my bag down. I still on the couch. And i'm exhausted. And then come consummated. What i did get a assists for romans. I think down the field with these guys. And you're in the bundesliga champions league. It all happened so fast. Sometimes you have a chance to think about it but when you have some time for yourself it's really cool. We should say it's remarkable this year and he's been away. You are a real american resurgence. First of all you were fifteen when the us fellate trinidad and tobago playing two teams at once always a mistake. They fail to qualify for the two thousand eighteen world cup. Where did you watch that game. I want you feel on that. I was at my house with my family and as a pretty relaxed evening for us assuming that the us would qualify really shocked. All of those special might act get hit him the hardest because he was successful and a few world cubs and to see where your soccer was in. The moment of time was a little bit sad for all of those little bit elope it. I mean our darkness comes light you on now. Pov exciting core of young americans performing the biggest clubs in europe at chelsea. Tyler adams at leipzig. Gino desks that barcelona weston mckennie at you. Venter staring at rinaldo. Everyone in the world would want that poem. That's a look at them. You thinking just about yourself and your own career or you check in results comparing competing with them never really competing with the americans. Non nuoc comparisons anymore. Knowing that i'm going to have an impact coming in the near future so i think it's usually wanting to do well and wanting to have success. Thirteen is making sure. They're fit awfully playing games. All these guys. It's top level. Tyler krishan west and even chris richards buying and the guys who are slow too so exciting for all of us and i know each one of us probably looking towards each other and say that we can have a good team in four or five years or even in the near future with some veterans that we've had i wash longtime but we have a good future. Do you feel this is a moment where you can redefine what it means to be an american player in the world. This generation can really your soccer out there as a country that is just be level where it can be an na level competing nations. So i don't want only players in america. Look up to me. But i want young players to look up to me all around the world so we wanted to make names in the international levels and the worldwide stage you've talked about being a goal oriented human being you've said you main goal is to look forward what you've done in the past as a young player being the i team a little bit on the boundary. The preseason before you said all your goals are now set ahead. Are those goals gio. I as a club. Plant is such a big club with fans here. They still have ambitions to win titles and want to win trophies site as much as i can continue working every day and learning from us guys more experience than i do still only seventeen so i know there's so much to improve on so much to learn but yeah score. A goal is really just work for the team in any way possible and then in jersey of the united states of america. What's possible. I haven't even been any feels like to be the i team but hopefully soon in the next couple of months i can go in and for everything. Stay safe but obviously there's pressure because we didn't make the world cup last time with i'm confident we'll hundred or something right this time but we're gonna have a young team at the world cup of free qualify and i watched mexico last night and they really have life connected fighting group and i think that's what we saw need to work on to which the us hasn't had recent years even if we're not as talented we stick together. We need to fight. We need to work as a team but everybody on the team knows that. And we're all willing to do whatever it takes to win as much as we can the prospect of ut me up for the us on home turf in twenty twenty six. I have to say for so many of us a troop late in the dog.

Football Postcast: Champions League & Europa League Special

"Follow party power on Snapchat. The username is the Patty power, and we promised I wouldn't be any boring. Snaps about gigs. The weather all the gym. Hello on Langton. The welcome to especial race in most foot will host costs. Open champion's lead. Angie, rope elite this mid we joining me in the studio racing post colleagues Charles and the implant and on the line from Aspen says potty power, it's Emmett's O'Keefe will everybody ROY. Let's get stopped writing to the champions the outright. It's a fantastic competition. Best of the best. Can you just give us a rundown, please the Champions League outright betting, please? We've Moncia tend to three Barcelona four to one event to six to one. They relate to one to one rather Madrid eleven to one bar Munich twelve to one Alaska Madrid twenties. I'll take that. I'll start with Manchester City were V favorites, and maybe even deserving of being shorter and your. Three thing they could be a little bit shorter. Don't see it seem compassionate at the moment. I seem to be getting better as a season goes on. I mean, you you Chris choice imports for the six Neil were defeated. Eddie have just city with frightening. The you know, the intensity they play that. I think that the Brian coming back being fully fit now is just taking on another level. I mean, didn't even miss DIVY silver who's been one that didn't stop one of the best players of the season. And I'll just think you look at some of the competition there, I'm overly convinced by some of the event about a little bit with dip recently at the free noodles Lance land. Didn't I in corporate Talia was big concern there ball? Should I always feel you can get them defensively? Especially in the away leg is where needs knockout games and go great record in the away legs Liverpool just dipped a little bit recently PS Jia fancied after the group stage. But the injuries Inc really going to hurt them as well. Name. Are it sounds like he's gonna be out until early April at the moment? I think that's going to be. I mean, that's going to be a problem for Pierce g the while interesting further down the list Athletico Madrid so on I should say after organs eventers spur always thinking these two legged toys because I defend so well, a good chance of getting through and twenty so one if they get policy events is you know, that be good better have Liam what's your the pick of the process, which best back a lot look at Barcelona. We know Spanish sides traditionally very good in the Champions League row. Madrid's having won three seasons. I think now an Estevao Vada is called the perfect balance in that scored and you look at that. So of experience core of Lionel Messi, so Joe Bousquet it's GOP PK being before that's now complemented by sort of young exciting talents is monitoring belly. And and Malcolm though, the first team to qualify for the knockout style. Well, no, honestly, I think I team to qualify from very challenging group with you know, intimate. Alon Tottenham even Pierce v in the fifteenth successive season in the knockout stage now, and I know people talk about distractions, and when you go competitions how much focus can you put on the Champions League? But it's hope of Lalita and a copyright semi final. Still we've around Madrid did not game, of course. But I think they've got the depth to cope with all those competitions. And when you're winning matches across a series of different competitions. I think I can only be a good thing. And they've of course, they were rocked a little bit by the loss of simultaneously to injury earlier, but he seems to be back in training now. And I think they'll only be a stronger team when he comes in to be back limo long way looks PK's that she co quite well, but yeah, for me also now we've got so blend of experience the younger players coming through. I think the rest of those teams that Manchester City oversee you can't rule out. But the rest of the team's up there arrive lacking in that kind of Champions League, lots of stage experience. So they've got some serious deficiencies in different area. Think boss'll under the most well rounded team in the copetition you've mentioned buffalo. Dunn's mentioned that let's go Madrid ongoing for the Spanish hat-trick Real Madrid. Are over priced double-figure olds. They'd go easy game against is. Because I did well against buying in in terms of in group stage by still seeing the Real Madrid who'd be happy enough with that for a last sixteen home if the season, you know, they spend the first few months doing absolutely nothing, and then they wake up or in the last week or so the drawing away to also loaner one away. So let's go Madrid lost free years. And for the last four now known Cristiano Renaldo is a big poll of that. But they still go. You know, the makings of a very strong senior called swallowing gold Voronin Ramos as that sue sends a house, and you've got customer crews, a nukem Aldridge midfield Benz. Mer does very solely job up front. Nothing Vinicius that the young Brazilian is really I did an x factor to to the Real Madrid. So of attacking recent weeks garb bowel came off the bench against let's go score. These hundred. Dole just finger. This was seen. It was around about seven zero one. So Mark when the compensation I started. Now, they're going over double figure olds they've won their group cable. They did in the league for the first few months this show before that doesn't count on guy around Madrid who you gun full. I told you echo your sentiments there. I'd like bar stone of the front three of the market. But I'd sided that definitely ran Madrid's Madrid's tomorrow of tiger event to say her price head of them. I don't think they'd be going much bigger than eleven to ten sixty five to qualify. If even I think they're not standing seam as you mentioned the strengthen defensive midfield. Unlike the the difficult more. A lot more of a team as of late, and they're very very impressive away to go the weekend. Okay. I was expecting to be standing alone with the Real Madrid. So they don't go out. I'm in good company with Emmett. Can you also run through the top goalscorer marketplace messy favorite thirteen days eleven days. Three to one name or ninth one gieco fourteen to one and by seventeen to one Garo twenty two twenty two one twenty two embar. Okay. Well, dose skiing leads to the moment from the no messy who would you be backing it? Well, one of the front or is it someone over them analyst? I think Messier FA the most likely winner as the odds indicates and could be a value in the in the place markets here because Levin. Ski at the moment. Barner it's about five to six barn qualify Liverpool. But I can see Liverpool going off odds on there is a decent John celebrities QB and therefore that eight goals could be surpassed. And then of the players on five goals. Three behinds eleven ski. You've Eddin Jacko who wouldn't wouldn't expect Rome which go far chrome rich the competition with often I'm Moraga from Porthos injured 's Todd from I XE again lightly, I I would say Royal and then pilot Balas who who may not even star. He's only scored to really goes and Sarah this year. So I think there's a lot of the guys who are a high open the goal charts are pretty vulnerable on the the two I like bigger prices, Nick, Nick, a place will be most solid fifties. I think it's a pretty big price. Liber put her in ninety two to make the final. I made the final I think twelve and a half to one on the place. There is pretty good and thirty three to one hundred about Benza as well, again, eight hundred place there, I can see. Getting a fair few goals against ex if they go far as expect them to think again, I could see him running into place there. If he twenty fever either for from done. What was your it said about the law? No mess shellings by far the most likely winner and probably a worthy favorites each way. Option auto for his Aguayo. He's on two goals at the moment as it's just mentioned there. Probably outside of messy, the target that you look in gets probably isn't going to be that big and guero. He's planning shock. Probably. The worst thing lessening competition a form he's in the monument and the White City applying amount of chances that Christ him for him. I wouldn't be surprised if he scores three four five goes over the two legs. I mean, I it's feasible. And all of a sudden he wrote in we've seen the I'm expecting to go away. So Queiro from easy each way value, and for you, keep him the boss, Elena fame, Galeano messy, again is probably my number one pick six goes in a very challenging group there expect as I said boss line into very deep into this competition, but outside of that I think Kilian mbappe actually looks quite interesting to me of Seapower sentiment. Hit with the name are injury. Now, the Edison Cavani doubt as well. I mean free goals in the Champions League. So far four sisters. Well, he's top score in the league with eighteen goals this season. I think we'll see we'll be more emphasis on him. People questioned. Ever. You can carry that burden with PS g tricky law sixteen fixture against Manchester United way, did it the woke up last year, and nobody expected that. So I think. Yeah. NPS G as well. I think come progressiveness competition. They did top very tricky group. We've live aboard Napoli in. Okay. I Messi probably will win Levin. Dos. Gay the stall he's done only Cameron in terms of the group thing that lost sixteen ties req- Megan's. If would say though in Levin, dusky favor Virgil Van Dyke he suspended for that first leg against blind. So maybe opportunities as so Nick one goal and set set sets hall gate is she messy will get for shell Evernote or the perennial winner of this golden Buddha. Cioni one goal for you Venter's, though, we have seen him before go crazy or pro Rinat too often against let's go Madrid. As far as the knockout stages, go. Well, we've got absolutely beauty's. In terms of the last sixteen starts, of course. On tuesday. Emmett mentioned all it's against PS g not imminent prices and maybe some qualifies as well. And then your view the game. Thirteen ten twelve to five and PS two your twenty one to ten and mine either eleven date qualify. VS G four to seven. It's it's interesting. You know, when this when the draw was made and what Marino still manager were tend to three to qualify. And that's that's that's one of the biggest deal ever. See it happening eleven days. Obviously, it's not just because you know, it's improvements neymar and and Coveney both being at is is is significant to the us wanting from PSG's favor is Marco vowed he returned from injury the weekend. Like, if he was I think that would administaff too far really fancy tonight. It's be interested to see a PS g set up here because they tended in previous years. Let's overcommit an attacks and be very void on the counter. And if they do this you ought to rewrite them, so marseils goals, two weekends, obviously rush. It's very Gordon the counterattack. So as the. That's something that they've really committed to undersold shore. And again, I would say the fact the PHD were desperate to sign. It Idrissa gay on deadline smacked of I would say vulnerability in the squad and vulnerability that holding would fill the position. So I think he can exploit this and. For the March. The the better go with the over two point five goes eight to eleven I just can't see they're not being goes here and PS g generally play very open. I think know his defense is quite vulnerable to. Okay, I think I'm gonna. Okay. I think I'm gonna go for PS g so qualifying thrift is just gone a little bit too, far ado respect even the soldier is done in terms of the recovery. Menges is position getting them up so forth. And we said, oh, I'm beating anybody. Then they've been taught me so well, they were lucky to be salting them. And then they'd be arsenal. And then we're still trying to find more excuses. And I agree that I think Popa could run that midfield against his mom bar stooping, PSG, aquatic, better the Manchester. You know, I'd say that defense, even even if it's second-string Bapai that Maria still fingers law quality in that PS g so I I think over the two legs, particularly on a very very strong power own in your we've seen them really putting things up also Liverpool. So the saw Chelsea as well. So Dan, you we all forget Cavani could be back for the second leg as well. Which would make a big difference. Now, I would favor piss g two gopher in this. On the first leg are she see it being caught? So I'll think PS g because of the injuries that I think my may go a little bit more cautious. And it could kinda suit them in a way because much at three like teams coming onto them to use the pace on the counter attack thing veracity coming back. He's a big boost for pitch to veracity martinis should give the the defense Gupta protection. And you know, if we've seen as we've seen the the one song that title lied under social against bone Leona, they go back to but I want to convince in in doing. So I mean, it was a poor decision. Barter? The bony defender might the challenge to give the penalty away. But it looked pretty clueless up to that point. Now, just or just be still there's a question of it against it saying that sets up frustrates and got the quality of you sign on as he signed the bright Drexler they Maria by still plenty going forward there. I don't think both teams might be very respectful of each other here that could lead to a low scoring. I think the draw is a big price with. Completely agree drawers well thing. Yeah. You're not being priced is going to new found attacking mindset in in the last couple of months Belay can also grind out results as we saw against us. No and taught him all about the counterattack thing inferior possession. I think I lost shot count in both of those games oversee relied on David to hair against Tottenham. And I think Patterson is your man as well. They'll probably view draw Old Trafford is probably good results. Type back home with them, especially as we say with a potential Cavani boost. When I go back there over the tight literally identical down over over the toy price engine, man. Oh, traffic ongoing for drool. Okay. And the other game old choose they not probably won't get too many views own the full into over Britain, and all and everyone would be concentrating on the United game Bates Roma against Porto. We have some prices for the Neue and also to qualify. Draw twenty three to ten Porto eleven to four on a or ninety ten to qualify. It would Porto twenty two twenty three. Importer quite big pricier guy for them as a win the game or just call. It qualify eyewitness game. That's the other thing. You know, these two teams in very different mindsets, very different mental states of the mind. And as I talked about earlier having winning mentality across a variety of competitions portside spot couple of draws in the league, and they all still talk in the semi finals of the Cup. They came through probably the easiest Champions League group to be fair, but pretty much escaped five wins and a draw. And then you look at ROY Moore completely off the pace and Syria. Seven one demolition against fear. And teen is really set them back is so toxic atmosphere. Think brewing there the moment, and they progressed having lost free games in that group in occupancy with with the exception around Madrid. It wasn't a particularly tricky group bushiest K and Victoria Pilsen in there and has some serious issues at the back fat CO not particularly convince infamy so porty to win. On a very miss qualify. I just like is it tall? So it so I just feel I mean semi-finalists, you know, all season they are unbeaten in six league games. So this I know that shocking result in the in the corporate Talia, but I think there's been a revolve win the league a of injuries earlier in the seasons. Well, hasn't helped them new competitions. And I'm just not convinced tightly reporter, that's the main reason I think I read a week group. And they did they could win that group. But they're the record in love around the sixty. And he's in great. I've lost four that all five around the sixteen. So is just think wrong if the get anywhere near the best might be a little bit too strong on no going, go to qualify can go. I go. I like, I think Roma. We'll take a lead them. I'm not sure if they'll hold on buffing Marais as a big out of reports. Are you the destruction that has been scoring goals and just record against the big east teams important? They lost away to Ben fica. And then they also would not sound waves in the fall. In Oregon sports, and they couldn't put them away and then lost on penalties. So I mean, you got a lot of easy games in Portugal where you can rack up these long twenty match on being runs without doing too much. And this is a bit more of a test for them. And even though I think we're all right. Having a more difficult season lost yesterday like the quality. They've got in all areas of the Pige think they are still going to gain the four, and it's the it will show best bet for this. Which depending on the qualify where the match prices. So I think there's some eight to one available and Colorado score anytime for Roma. Everything's definitely worth. Backing he scored four goals in open play and Sarah all year. And he's also on the penalties on also also in his favor as the Vars coming into the knockout stage in the Champions League, which should increase the number of penalties. So that's that's where looking at all the games this weekend. Okay. Well, one of those games Tottenham against Borussia Dortmund amick. Can we have some prices to qualifies and also your verdict fees? Yes, we've talked number five four the draw Twenty-three to turn Dortmund to two on to qualify. Tottenham nineteen twenty Dortmund three to four. I think again, this is very hard to call grosses probably unlikely to be fish was a big loss for Dortmund, and then Cain and allier unlikely to be involved at least in the first leg Spurs haven't played that west since canes bananas didn't wealth groin that results. Blamed they've also been quite fortunate especially at the weekend against LeicesteR when they were fairly well played. But if scored the penalty would have been different game. I think it's in a hard game to call a chance saunas first goal scored six to one. I think even if you rented plays up front or I think he's they're most likely score eastward three scores in the last three games return from the Asian Games and degree decent chance. He actually starts. Frontier. I think that's the way I play. Can bring record against Borussia Dortmund eight goals in nine matches scored in these last free for Tottenham against Dortmund. But also when he was Hamburg and by Leverkusen, just use the score against Dortmund for fun as far as don't go where they've had a couple of free free draws in in the last couple of games knocked out the Jovan cuff on penalties by Bremer. And then Fru away free goal lead against huffing high. I think Royces injuries every bit as massive as what is. Tottenham if he doesn't play I'll be back in salt odds against it's fair enough price. I fully admit that suppose, we're pretty horrendous against that stuff. They still won the game as they have been doing a lot this season. And I think the Dortmund over achieving probably more than what more in the Premier League. So I'm gonna go for Tottenham damn more about you go for the drawers heading towards going for Thornton until the rois injury Royce injury. As you say is a big blow for them. Kinda Ali obviously, a massive outs for Spurs as well. I mean, I in terms of the two legs, so many fish person looks kinda we back for it for the second leg that's going to be that's going to be in the thinking Inc of portraits for this game push. Yes. He's exactly. And that's that's why I'm looking at the draw auditing either team will be to displease of a jaw Dortmund are going to get get it get it level back back to our home ground where you know, as a fantastic atmosphere, and that and enjoy being be probably be available that I find the challenge there and suppose going to think about kind analogy if we can keep it level, and you know, we've away goals as well. And maybe you get you get came back possibly Aaliyah's. Well, they're gonna fancy the challenge as well. So I'll just think draw that both be happy with and that's what makes it valuable. We'll Vajgl the holding midfield has been playing sending a hall for Dortmund with a candy out in the L out a shocker against Hoffman. Hind lever. You guy for spas in this one. To me. This is the hardest law. Sixteen is a cool. So I've actually gone for goals in this one. I have a two point five goals about eight to eleven I think it was you know, these these are two of the free teams to maintenance knockout stages having conceded ten or more goals in the group stage, you know, Spurs go FRA is hampered a little bit by the loss of Cain. Same oversee goes Dortmund and mauka ROY spa. I think almost constantly around these still to teams with an attack in mindset about them Borussia Dortmund over the as where wherever it's being young and clock. Thomas to pollution five they've always operated in that way. Four two free one tends to be the system they guy with is almost a front four. They're talking numbers. Bundesliga Toko scores of fifty four goals. I don't think Tottenham have shown lack of goalscoring prowess in Keane's absence recently. So I still think is a a chance for goals in this one coffee, and that's probably the first and only preview tilting of us. Appreciate don't want. That doesn't mention Jaden Sancho vein involves I'm sure. He's got into absolutely everywhere between now and kick off and he was fantastic going forward against huffing Heim the weekend. The final game in the first batch of fixtures on Wednesday, it's acts against Real Madrid. Emmett can we assume firstly prices and some to qualifies, and then you're verdicts, please we've excellent for the draw three to one remedied five to six then to qualify. X twenty three to ten and Real Madrid two two seven I like like Ramadorai to win the macho at five to six like they've as we mentioned earlier in the right preview. They've been a different team lace winning their last six in the league and creditable draw away to bar some spa in Spanish cope as well. I think I exit kind of fall away. But in the league, they're five points behind PSV and PFC game. And Hans lead you think expert little bit flattered whether groups day's performance where they held Byron couple of draws when when Barbara Bodley at a form, I if they played now in could be a different results. And I think the Mark. Probably hasn't quite caught up to a go team ran Madrid. And I'm pretty confident they can take this six, right? Well, I'll keep it ram Android again. The wind done Al surround withdrawal full house. What? Three. I'll just I'll totally agree with him. It just said they're all acts being flat by the performance against bottling bomb applying that whether that so if you look at the trying to gauge their strength from being in the actually that beyond fine or what you got three points. So that the BS g go to point he s he s. Yeah. Yeah. So I'm gonna pass for you got two points in their Champions League group. So that that doesn't suggest that strong. They always say recently six three. Reuben Percy destroyed them which nothing to defeats all three league games, which I in Fadi week dots league. That's that's not great forms be to be going into such a big time Real Madrid. As you mentioned Cutler big, oh, I performance. He's recently. This is far easier than the the guy who whites up officer and a White Sox commentary Real Madrid for me. Okay. Liam is it full house full house. Yeah. Around Madrid as well. I think when the fixtures announced initially thought a fancy maybe all acts in the home leg but looking at it around Madrid completely steadied the ship onto solorio in recent weeks and massive massive win led to Madrid. Whereas look I XE oversee they got into like we said to that six two against fire nodes and they lost to Harare's in in the league recently as well. So yeah. Around Madrid to infamy as well. Okay. Well, we'll be back with more after this success. Ain't tent? It's board. That's why Poti power we pay the big bucks for the best techniques in the world to develop our new fastest app. Download the new app in the app store or placed on now. Eighteen plus become the widow tube. Hello and welcome to the racing post, postcards, Champions League and Europa league special on mcclendon. Joining me on racing post colleagues done chosen limb Flynn and then on the line from the sponsors, Patty power. It's o'keefe. Now, the first Lord Champions League gains, obviously being played. And then there's another batch Champions League games the following week. So on the Tuesday on the nineteenth for February's Liverpool against boy in Munich, unfil-, war gain this promises. So be awesome. I like prices and since a qualifies, please. Yes, we've lived for leavings draw of thirteen five and Byron twelve to five to qualify. Liverpool three to four and in nineteen to twenty. Okay. I'm gonna go for Liverpool to qualify. And that's my best bet in this one. I mentioned earlier on in the post cost vandyke missing for that first which I think is important as far as Liverpool concern. But even if they don't manage to put buying away. First time around I think they'll kill him on the counter-attack immunity from very Monae of amino and sallow over play. Really? Well, it was only boomer Fano on Saturday. But they they really did look so back in terms of I think he's the key man. Reading just in terms in Lincoln that whole team together. And then Naby cater who I think is really disappointing for this season second half west time. He's really good. And he was involved in a couple of the goes, I just mean the buy and it's a famous name, but not necessarily great team in the conceding and giving up chances. I think over the the piece if you like livable going to reach the core falling on I've got really hectic period. Coming though, magic, you know. So that may be we'll count against them because of the primarily would be their priority. I still think they'll come through done anything for the first leg or the. Guy for the to qualify. Overall funds deliver for China votes on qualified. I think van dark if he's going to miss a lake adroit remiss the first lake when a fuel buying probably going to that a little bit more cautious be happy to sustain. That's how I feel like I'm feeling by dot coming back for the second lake just just too silly for him back away from how and then as you do that on the counter attack with the grateful, which like bond having proved but not to the level where it's would say they almost an even chance against a same as good as liberal for the moment. I mean, the experience that they're accumulating as well. Going to that offense. I sit around all season that's going to sign him in good stead as well. I'll just give it a genius who moved them things this world so pulse that best for. I mean, if you look, you know, against the in the in the Bundesliga, they don't come up against the gymnasts forwards of the quality. They're going to face over these two matches. And I'll don't think Liverpool exposed them. Okay. What the racing post Denia man going to? He's going to have a war words with some of the boy and hierarchy because he criticized robot Nevin dose gate the weekend on the the sky in Germany, Liam, you a big fan eleven of ski or do you think he is up for flat tr- bully and a little bit lazy, which I think was the main point did he was trying to might on a big fan of room Levin dose. Don't score eight goals in the Champions League without being taught close player. And I think he presents by me, and expressed best threat boss that they Liam says you to on fancy. Yeah. Fancy live for she to win the first leg. I think that Liverpool being given enough credit for progressing from an extremely tough. Grape Napoli passenger man and red star is welcome. Can be written off their mugs. And I think yeah. Liverpool to to get through that first leg of a win is is not our reach by Munich still wishes at the back to agent defenders. I think radio pummels and bud saying sort of the World Cup as well. And by Munich ships in each of their last five games Liverpool. Just seven conceited at home in the league this season found like missing is. Of course obliged. I still think they've going off to to shut out by Munich. And I think that yeah. Their main focal phrase eleven dose keep but beyond that. I don't think they're the intimidates inside. They they once were. You can have so between Liverpool as well. Adecco echo. All of you said really just unlock went off ski. I kind of agree with TD Hammond thereafter, say the remember seeing is dot years ago when he was Dortmund that he'd the most he lost the ball more than any other player in the league, juju bad, I touch do think like the real top end. I think he lacks technical quality. He was very very poor and their and their defeat Real Madrid over two legs last year. I think e let them down at the knockout stages won't too many times after me really say he's a real like cabal Balladur contender going thing. It was a very very sweet on on Liverpool. I mean, the his fingers going to be a close game. Forty six in Liverpool box t of a game on choosing is an intriguing one Leone against Barcelona. Emmet some prices, I shouldn't boss appreciate so some first-leg unto qualify process. And then you'll verdicts as well, please Leon seventy to draw three to one barstool eight to thirteen and then Leon eleven to to qualify in Barcelona. One takes Leonardo the most consistent team. But they did it be PS g at home recently, then took four points off city in the group stages, which is no mean fees. I could see as Don mentioned earlier Barcelona ten destroyed it away from home. So he the first being competitive, but kind of the prices reflect us, a maybe chance Leon double Johns for the first leg w I wouldn't be never strong feelings, Kathy. I'm gonna go for Leon older drawer. Wwl's in that first leg busloads of anyone one of their last seven knockout ties away from home that was against Austin would have collapsed a couple of times as whether against G and against Roma and Neo four points off city, and it wasn't like a fluky for points out. She played really well for in in both legs and or wall on on then Belay emit 'field of Inca asleep prize definitely going to go on. And so a Levy on the in the near future and upfront faquir in Memphis of go to in them, maybe not over a whole season. But certain in annoying t minute game soco's, boss alone, the problems, if you do to take the view lane boss is the way to go. It will be closing your eyes every time mess. He's got the ball because defensively the own can be vulnerable. They've beaten Pierce g that beat them. And see see that's the best teams in your. So what they beat boss? Learn or at least give them a really good game dumb. We'll give them a good game. Akai withdraw would have gone with a chance did faquir is is suspended for the first leg. So that that was just take a little bit a wife, and they're attacking threat for me. I think the Mexico corn has been used as a sub. He he was very very might begin packing. The group stage the woman that's enough of a string to their attacking by if you like Musha Zambelli as well. He's been scoring goals for them. So they got plenty of that going forward. Just just can't see quasi boscell and getting beat. So just go on the angle at being a close game only. It'd be goes probably be close and three one enjoys is reasonably priced Lear going for boss, so win the competition separate humorously, you know, visiting too many programs. I think fossil I know both teams to school. I think of leeann at huge win against price recently, and they are tough opponent in their own backyard. But I think boscell I know just have too much leaner messy seems to shake off wherever injury issue. Had now playing against Bilbao somewhere t t as I said should be back in the side over the two legs. And we talk about C boss align is disappointing away record. But I did come through away matches against presidents or the great pretty much on escaped. And that was a very young set of Leon players remains to be seen. How they'll coat with a big knockout against buffalo in are still finger a bit to rule for that. So buffalo by teams to school. Okay. Okay. Well on the Wednesday, we've got one obsolete belting gaining some of the best in which we'll get to in a minute. But first of all we focus on the permeating team Xiaosha against Manchester City, just how shore man city to win the first leg and also to qualify for sure we've shock eight to one ninety two and city to seven for the match then to qualify shock at thirteen to city won't eighteen one. So I ain't seen them. I this is easiest healed suggestion what kinda valuable can you find to maybe get we city. I think is the angle. Tangle of going with as Manchester City, Manchester City double result thing I looks pretty good. I think shock owner horrendous run in the Bundesliga really believe they're a Champions League. So I had eleven games lost in the Bundesliga this season. One key. Probably I've looked at with them as they seem to keep eighteen kind of between us of backfire back four as a result of that thing. It says it coat and color, Jerry three backs. I tend to even in a back for right almost as wingback say commit themselves too far forward. And if you give Manchester City kind of space down, those sides, absolutely shreds, and I think it should be quite comfortable win for Manchester City. I mean, mentally if twenty one Premier League games this season knowing seen those wings. They were head the bright. So Dan Lewis, y'all s. Hopped on food. So I'm surprised it was such a decent price. Really? I mean, you could childcare. I mean, they've lost six ten Bundesliga. How games in taking on what are the best team in Europe? And not only that they probably plant as well as I have season. I mean, the why if you're doing the Hoff's on on the way the starting games at the moment as well. When he scored first minute new cost. I mean against all snow off, the, you know the full minute against show. See the flying out the blocks at the moment. And that that's the that's your only Bari really I think with a half song forward to unveiling if they're in front of the bright they'll go win so often full interest in the in the Champions League that she conceded. I in four the six matches. So I think problems earlier on in the season. Maybe their minds were just wondering they with. Of course, a good going over by new prior to this trip so gauche in kirkum when the in the FA Cup and then off to that. Of course, it's the phone. So. Yeah. Skate you at the moment. Offing see a win this one very comfortably going for city, minus one on anti decapa because I'm not sure what shall we? Do. I think if you were being only about you'd be really defensive. I don't know as a club one of the biggest clubs in Germany, whether there'd be too proud to protect themselves go off to the game a little bit. And then just get done by the absolute superior quality, somebody wants sewn, and of course, on these return could do the damage Emmett can you find a way of getting we Manchester City or you looking to take him on? It's echo again relieved the city modest Warner city. Halftime fulltime either will do skydeck without yesterday that I think city it scored the first fifteen minutes and fourteen league games. I think the closer to that was seven such shows how well they're starting compared to the rest of the league like childcare lower table Bundesliga side. And they the the GOP appears just huge. On the only goal shock will really lucky to finish. So it was hall as I did in the Bundesliga season. So probably lucky to to be in the Champions League. Then they got the easiest group you could possibly wait for we've pulled so and Lokomotiv Moscow and Galata Sarai. So it should be simple enough for the tournament favorites also on Wednesday. Maybe not so simple. This one's a call Letica in Madrid against events as I mean as long if you don't see this is the game that you need to be watching on Wednesday, the twenty February. How do you bet the first leg? How do you bet? That's a qualify. And all you all zone game goes to penalties afternoon draws for it sex issues. Sure to be extremely Thais we've athletic your thirteen eight draw two to one and even to fifteen days with electrical Madrid five to four to qualify and event is four to seven. I guess it tells you hear that the the price for an ill on the first legs eleven to two 'cause I was very. Very short. This is likely to be probably a cynical low scoring tie between two teams pretty familiar with the darker. So it say. The start started the season at win. The I could've flattered to deceive all year. They they spent money on Thomas Lamar they haven't really got much out of them. I think Simione is possibly I could say this during his tenure possibly holding them back a little bit in that. They're still think they're playing quite quite defensively in the already need to what some of the creative players that have a midfield. Having said that I haven't been that impressed by event to slightly done mentioned than behind by Atlanta and the cope I watched of their game. Wait, lots recently where they were outshot maybe nine shots two zero after but sixty five minutes the ended up winning and getting a penalty which Rinaldo scored on even I remember remember? Sure. Sure. But in I think they're on a wider picture their points. Total in Sarah, flutters them seriously. According to expect to goals and few defensive injuries as well. Like, the they sold Benatti it to the Middle East for kind of small of money mistake bars. Ivy's at injury problems Banou cheese Baluchi on Collini the same and they're all thirty plus stop a bit of a worry at there's some six to four and a qualified because reasonable you can just this is going to be a low scoring tight tie. And I would want to be back even to set really short prices here. He's going to be looking at the draw for the I think Simione takes Nunu. And then, you know, if he can Nikolai go for grease Mun or somebody like that on the counter, it's hot he go shins, you know, they need then it would seem to go chasing a first leg victory. So I think the draw I draw, Dan, what's your best? But you mentioned that ROY. How is facts is getting get little bit underestimated here actually, go in LA league record is is is the best thing alita. I'll just think you know, if you've ventures is going to pass it on or around Madrid. You know, what the price is going to be then I just think you know, one of the big freeze spine off being for quite walnut being consistent for a long long. So I'm another about the bad result. Coming in's coming into the to the type, it's I think there is a deep we've had a drawer Palmer recently as well. There is you know, the the. If the defensive injuries have been mentioned just thing I all for a deep is a tough tough places. Go for the first, and they can see Mickey an advantage actually in the first like, I think thirteen so I is okay. Too tight for Madrid. So in the I league Liam. I'm going to go against this common opinion here. The of see on paper these two guys defensive units in Europe. I actually think we price for over two point five goals at all actually looks. I'll be back in that process. Rugged soon. I'll show. Well, then we want real you're looking I don't think the market is taken into consideration. The recent form of these two teams event is losing freedom to Atlanta as we said concede in free at home to Palma. Let's go ripped open borrow Madrid at the weekend. And I think we focus so much on the source cynical defensive nature of these two. So as we forget they've go to the finest attacks in Europe as well. We've go Cristiano Renaldo palatable Antoine grease men all on display. I don't think you can say game involving those kind of players isn't gonna feet you go. So I think yeah. Perhaps a surprising gave over two point five goals in this one to me. The Laura is if there is an early not thoughts China, hold on I mix it saw the fact that, you know, both of them probably all going to shop initially to supply toilet. But if all the saw it goes in front, and that could then lead to to a change in the dynamic. Okay. Well, he's absolutely fascinating comb tests. That's for sure we'll be back with the European next checkout patties reward stamp simply place five bets if ten pounds or more across any sport in a week, and you get a free ten pound that next week teams. He's applying plus begin to welcome back to the racing post post cost. And now, we're going to be talking you wrote for the you get serious is definitely a marathon nor spring, but we down to the laws I e too, and it can you give us a decent show of Punto stimulants back some outsiders in this, and then maybe your view on who you think the outright? When will be. Yes, we've Chelsea four to one are still five to one not be thirteen to two severe to one Inter Milan. Intend to on blend CAT into one on-track Frankfurt twenty two one southbound twenty two one by Leverkusen twenty five's if at around twenty five's Zenit, Saint Petersburg twenty fives and Sporting Lisbon twenty-five thirty three's bar and you'll outright selection. But I I kinda like red bull south's Berg here. I'm very highly rate of Mandra, call Mark arose who won the Europe, the European you'd competition red blood cells Berg, which is no mean fees, and he's been talked about intensively for minority job. Even like they lost quite a few players last year. But they haven't really missed a beach there were dominance in the group stages. I think between twenty little bit overpriced. I don't. I'm not sure how seriously the Italian sides will take us. No talion teams won this competition since nineteen ninety nine when it was a lot more prestigious. I think you can pick holes and Chelsea an arson as well. Those prices. At the stall tipped so's Berg and Real Betis having only post cost of they're both made it through. I'm gonna change tackle. You'll be here. I I think that Napoli should be favorites. Damore watch of awesome. Chelsea the less convinced. I am by either of them I seen. Angela. We'll take the compensation pre seriously tends to like Europe. And then they say a reasonably high Stein that they were the best team in the Trump means leads to fall into the euro per league were unlucky. I mean, you could argue they were better than parsimony and Liverpool for the most part of that group. Staging just got done really in taught margin. I mean, they they the one for me the ones I've read a lot Valencia eating's one Spanish teams, go burningly in the euro for league Valencia on expecting goals and one of the top teams in Spain their Nassau in to turn some of their draws into victories. We saw them the oval gap point as a boss alone. Stewing the Coverdale rice EMMY finals, not missed all they're improving got. So I think they'll beat them. And go well done if you're not police off, I will very very impressive in the in the Champions League three think they'll continue to tightly competition seriously on the Chechen also supper them, all I think, you know, the way they're playing at the moment. I just don't feel you of any great coincidence. Further down the list on owed is Italian things have great recoup. I'll just the last show at twenty five's civilian the next round but severe I haven't been with. But at the moment, they not playing great. Is I just see our offense last show to get fruit. Atar that that position in Sarajevo little bit deceptive at the moment. They're only five points of third, but I've already played Napoli in Venice twice as a little bit. Folks position if you like the if you look at logically the different so Windsor who were actually caught hop in the betting so finish eleven importance of a last season in Serie ice. I I'll just getting a little bit underestimated get fruit Seville targets or sought out full that I would that could channels on a little white and limb I think put make is generally good at right? Having the to English clubs at the top of the market for mayo. She I'd fancy also see not great timing with the Chelsea result recently in the inconsistent form of five clubs, but I'd fancy either of them Heim against any team in this competition, not really Accenture included thing. Awesome for me last season probably veering towards their more than Chelsea they were unlucky not to make the final season better against that led to curb across both legs this season. I've also got the boost of having a a man in the Doug. I was being there done it before free right belief titles of severe. I think they can be anyone at the Emerson Chelsea's defensive concerns after the city result. But the key issue was up front. I was being temporarily. Plugged with the Gonzala Higuera presidents who knows all about European football. So I think one of those two outside show that you would he mentioned the row bets. A thing about thirty three to one thing. So that we mentality being culpa del Rey semifinals zero and a top four spot and Lalita the beaten it, let's come down boss Celona already this season. I talked to group featuring two teams love your European experience in Milan and Olympia costs. And I think the difference the edge. I've over teams I like on-track Frankfurt who of people fancy is that they've go that sort of experience in there in Giovanni Chelsea has Rigas your wing who've been at big clubs, and I wa- those big games takes off good outside. Just all of the matches. If you just with through the process, please in the the free involving British teams, and then maybe pick out one bet from one of those Fremont. She's what everyone you best. Sure, we've about a Borisov level to draw seven to our SLA to five model a to one draw four to one Chelsea three to ten and then Celtic five to draw on ninety four and fluency eleven to ten and two in the game to game. I most confident in like are bucking modest won't five to four. I think it significant they've no game after this the weekend because they're out of the Cup. So expect him to feel a strong team here looking to finish the tie and then rest players next week where league game after us. And then if you can go buy me Yang anything three two hundred over first goalscorer. That's definitely Abeche. Good chance. They'll start by himself frontier. After like I said start at the weekend. Okay. Liam anything that you look over the the free British. Times. And now my Chelsea game. Chelsea and under free point five goals. Odds against thing Malam, oh haven't really been playing competitive football of see that regular they're out their regular league season at the moment. But I think for as a result of that they'll be probably even more cautious when they come to play Chelsea Chelsea f c I don't think it'll be at absolute best of ecological knock from the city game. Mom, I only have two wins in the group stage. She progressives fall. But I only had one loss as well. So they do sell quite consecutively and Chelsea's free away results in the Greek finish one no one no one to two so done anything in the euro. Visit you look all snow against boss. I I along with our in group of Bharti last season with the, you know, did not sue many problems in Italy on the flip Dolly. Yeah, they flipped all being on on the planet reserved for marching in. Remember all in that group stage. I think they'll stronger now I think that they produce he's gonna look at Emory is kind of a backup option to should she sent Champions League qualification there about three. A one to to to finish in four and five to one. So in the rope leagues he's gonna already be looking at anything in especially we we'd record in the competition as well. You know, I don't go to tighten this seriously. Interesting boss, I know in the same class Austin Austin with w was out with a while plights olds against as anybody go any any outside of the the the British ones they wanna talk about. Or should we crackle them? Nothing. Not have to go. Outside of the the obese ones. Don't. I mean, it was just one online chat saw against on Frankfort. Maybe both teams a school in that game front. Vocals, some wonderful attacking plaza. Spotify drew new against limes-, but shuts all caused a lot problems in the Champions League. Two will not man city, but the Allman hope for line they score goals. But defensively they're a little bit dodgy and maybe a little bit rusty to. Visit the league's only just about to re- stall in Ukraine includes which I think is a disadvantage full of Russian and Ukrainian themes and nice based in that poll of the world. Now, it's time for the naps will be going to kick us off keep it simpler, remedied of five sixty six. Okay. I'm going to sell spoke to beat club Bush, and it's one thing houseboat him semifinalist last season minister bore and Frederick Brunson season tangos competition between them Belgian teams. Additionally, pretty poor. And you're the one danger of Salzburg is her dollar when he left and went to must have been difficult negotiations. When he went from all be source boats, all be Leipzig in January, Dan for you Iran Madrid five to six hundred before so strong relax go free naps around Madrid. I just think that the only extra seeing that since the winter break in hold on just come back terribly that the crazy gaming it's in vain when they conceded full goes, then they can see that six against final. They lost. Iraq says don't know what's going on I acts but Franken Yang they stole midfield. He's also a major doubt for this game. And no miss. He's controlled image field.

Caught Offside: Champions League Matchday 2

"My name is Lauren. I'm thirty three. I didn't want my identity to be the smoking mom. My first experience with jewel. I do remember being like distance, good. It's it's it's like a cigarette, but not. I don't miss smoking at all. Like I can officially say it grosses me out jewel is the tobacco alternative that delivers nicotine satisfaction without cigarette Asher lingering odor make the switch and j. u. l. dot com. Slash sports warning. This product contains nicotine. Nicotine is an addictive chemical. Caught off side with every gun and j. d. Benny. Offside from the Upper West side of in hadn't Andrew. Gulli JJ Davani. It's another Champions League Wednesday, what's up brother. Off. Plot of staff word. I couldn't get the words m these words that my head is melted, why what's wrong? Just seems all this football is being compacted together and forced into my skull. What is this your first day? I don't know if you've been doing this for years now. How was Nashville? Oh, boy, amazing city. Like couldn't recommend the city more as a place to go. The game I was. I was just walking out of the stadium awaiting your taxed. Now. I, I wasn't gonna eagles road trip now. It was because it's honestly, it's one of it's one of the worst eagles losses I've ever been to probably in person in terms of the way the game transpire. Okay. And then sure enough. I'm walking out of the stadium and my phone does buzz and sure enough. It is you, but but it wasn't because for a second one, I saw your name. I thought to myself. He wouldn't. He wouldn't do it again. I wouldn't do it again instead, it said, so why don't we recording this day in that day? I was like, he thinks I care right now the people. This is the end carton has been lifted. Into what? Andrew, gambling. Thanks to the general public what your team loses. Like in like pretty crushing fashion. I know it's only the fourth game of the season, but as far as a football game goes that you're invested in, it's hard to lose in more devastating fashion. I'm pretty sure then that when I was in Kiev straight after the Champions League final, you did text me and say, so how are we going to record? Well, we were doing a post game. We were doing like we were doing a podcast right after that game. Yeah, I know. But I'm just saying this seems like a normal question to ask. Anyway, in the spirit of friends. I actually do have a question though. Forty. Oh, go on because this has been a great subject of debate since I returned from Nashville. Five of us went, okay. We had one hotel room a sweet so three beds for five people. Which meant you had to share to two and one. Yeah, I for the life of me. Don't see any problem with that. And I was stunned to return back to work and basically find everyone that I know and work with just like relentlessly, making fun of me for that is not weird. Was weird about that. Thank you. Won't you guys, right, strange. I, yeah, I don't know. Maybe I'm like my crazy. Like is this really that like am I too old for this? Because I'm thirty four and they're saying that need when you turn twenty five, that's it. Separate room or nine seven bed God new. First of all, we're not all rolling in cash like Scrooge mcduck. Right. And you want to spend it on a few beers and have dinner and do. Doc arts is you don't spend much time in the room when we are in the room. You know you get back at the end of the night. You've been drinking like you don't really care. So you know, we're willing to Kana skimp on that so we can spend on other stuff. I, I don't get it man. I couldn't believe the backlash to doing that. And what kind of life clock do these people have to? They wake up a morning Smith birthday twenty nine. You know what? That means one year to thirty and also right now I can never ever share room with men are friends. Again, everyone has an opinion on everything. People just kind of let you were just fine, but in the spirit of going with your friends to sporting events, what are you doing this weekend? Wow, that's a that's a question. Saturday night intrigued UFC. I'll do to nine McGregor versus hub, Norma. Get off. Where's that? It's on TV. I was thinking, oh, I thought you meant, let's go, no, what are we fly? What is it in Vegas or something. I know somebody who's people who would drop, you know, thousands on going to see McGregor. I'm not one of them, but we go to a barren Brooklyn. We get dinner beforehand and we go watch the watch the fight. I'm gonna have to clear this one a mad because you know, I was gone all last weekend. All right. And so a man, you know, we may be doing something Saturday night. So in other words, gone for three days and like I feel like, I, you know, I kind of, I don't know. I'm not. I don't know if I'm ready to commit if you don't do this in the words of Conor McGregor, you'll end up how many barbecues did I invite you to over the summer that you just like brushed aside as though there were nothing, don't put our friendship all on this event. Now suddenly, because you're inviting the, it matters more. That's not what I said. That's how I read you end up doing nothing like you have seek I if you said, let's go out to watch like it's just as this college football game or this NFL or the soccer. I, I'd be like, oh, but like you have see. Doesn't necessarily excite me. Essentially. I'm asking you to hang out the centerpiece are the event around which we arranging it just happens to be hub on Connor, actually, like boxing more than you have see, I kind of holding onto that relic. I'm not a big UFC guy though, but McGregor is is interesting. And also if you don't, Andrew and I'm teeing you up again for a wonderful McGregor drop. If you don't come up with me this weekend, you'll end up Sergio melt till do. Yeah, I'll do nothing. You let him do nothing. Yeah. I'm gonna watch the man in the high castle because that comes back at the end of this week, excited about that too long. And I'm ready ready for it to resume. You know what else? We're ready to talk soccer Champions League. Let's start. We'll go through this chronologically as we tend to do because it seems to make sense or we could do alphabetical, but that's more confusing. We'll start with Tuesday event is three young boys, nil. I don't a lot of these. We're going to tell you the scores of all these games, but will will stop along the way when we have more to say, I don't have a ton to say about this other than I guess props to develop who comes up with a hat trick in in a match that you would fully expect, you vent this to win. They've been in scorching hot form for pretty much the entire season, and I now employs going to turn, I just wouldn't. I wouldn't really expect it at any other way. Oh, exactly. At to tap ins and wound, wonderfully executed. First goal, which was Brennan volley with the insight of his foot. I look, it's begun already. Oh, just goes to show. Yeah, they should start to them more regularly in the World Cup. I should've done x. y. and proclaiming him as the new, whatever. I, I'm a skeptic, I, I really think he's he's fabulous. Talented, put. I mean a hattrick against young boys is it's not enough. Yeah. Yeah, I, I hear what you're saying. Like it's like all the the Phil Fode truth IRS after he was phenomenal against Oxford, like he might be a great player, but let's like not use this as the gauge necessarily food and truth, or let's say, speaking of which often Heim and Manchester City city went to one in Germany. I do have things to say about this one. Mainly. It must have felt good for LeRoy Sante to return to Germany, not necessarily the club that he came to be playing in front of the German people and play so well after it's still fresh, I'm sure in everybody's mind in Germany with what happened. The World Cup this summer with him not being on the squad. Could he have helped. You know, there's people on both sides of that argument. We'll never know. But watching him play that well in front of German fans. I'm sure there were some people leaving that place that day. To themselves. Could he use that guy? Definitely. I, the larger thing for me was at half time. You could imagine how pep was acting an an and the intensity brought those conversations because often Heimer defending pretty well Bowman was having a go game in goal. And if that was just one point after two champions league's league games, Andrew, you will say that is a slight mini crisis for matches their city team which is supposed to be built to win this tournament. Now, Davidson had something to say about that. He certainly did what a gold dot was man of the match performance from him. I thought it could have been sonnet, but when Silva scored that goal, I think he kinda shifted in absolutely any made something out of nothing. He nipped in front of the defender. It was a poor kind of attempt to control in the ball, but Silva so much to do within a shot. It's in the net he's he's not bad. No, he, he really is quite good actually, and you're right. I, I don't know necessarily if I would say that they are staving off crisis had this not known annoyed that it did. And, and I know you didn't say that either, but it's important. I it's, you know, in the Champions League, you're expected when you're Manchester City to go to Hoffman Heim and be able to win. Like that's if you think that you have, you know the the Embiid to go on and win this whole tournament. Then you should be able to get three points there. You're gonna have to win on the road at some point, most likely now, speaking of pep, he did talk about all this and difficulty in the first game against Leon, their difficulty even in this game. And here's what he said. He says, I'm not surprised how many games did you see? Shocked are often high before today there good teams. The teams are so strong so good. I knew it. I try to tell them against Leone, how difficult it would be. We don't have history behind us for me. It's a surprise when they say, city will win. I appreciate it. Thank you, but it's not true. We're the same level of the teams a step below, the history of Liverpool, the Spanish teams, Malang event. That's what I believe. We've had one semi final one. Quarterfinal it step by step, be humble, analyze the opponents will. To get to the quarter-finals. That's a huge success for city. What. I'm sorry. Well, I don't buy it. Well, I nobody's trying to do. He's trying to again, it's he's like mister mind games and it's much guys, sellers part. We must always be going playing high. But guys we cannot for one second, Dr Anne intensity, you're tired you, but for, but that is classic him. What he's saying about Hoffa Heim there is that you're not watching NATO's men like I am. You're not understanding what he's doing with this team and to a point he is correct. But the other side to that is you spend so much money on this team. You won the Premier Li, you walk what we the best league in the world by a record margin often high in having torn up any trees in the early stages of the Bundesliga. And for me, it's not even necessarily about what he says with regards the Hoffman Heim, Leone or shocked are it's, it's really that last line that like really grabs me when he says, we'll try to get to the quarter-finals. That's a huge success for city. I'll be curious to see what the Manchester City supporters. I believe in a statement like that would do now Mubarak think of any of this. That's not where he expects you to be. This is not what we're paying for pep. Yeah. Now I'm not saying that it's championship or bust for them in the champion. They were building for this before pepperoni t big, Arish. Dan was in how many was the eighteen months or two years in the job building building this background, this this new club, so they could be competitive regularly in the champion. Say, that's I know what Pepe saying from the point of guy sky, Selhurst Park and guys guys, huffing Heim put at the same time. You can't be serious when you're just talking about where a step below x. are white dot does not wash? No, no, not for them. They're just way too good. I'm sorry that ship has sailed. The expectation is what it is regardless of what you wanna say, you can't bring back the first season feel of this right? That ship has sailed. Now, there is one other part of that though that I'm a little bit torn on, and that was what he said in the middle about. We don't have history behind us, like Liverpool event is no, but. It's funny because part of me wants to say, does that really matter the players matter? But last season after Spurs went out to you. All I heard from, you know, Kia Leney and players like that was weird. You vent is we always believe we would do it. They don't have the experience here, you know. And then when Liverpool went on their run, you know, Liverpool finished fourth in the league last year, they were very, they were very good team, but they weren't outstanding. But in the Champions League, they seem to be carried through with this belief that we're Liverpool. We can beat anyone in Europe. Right? So I'm conflicted, quite frankly as to whether or not history, you know, the color of your jersey actually does play a role. I think the role that it plays is probably in the hearts and minds of the travelling supporters in the fans because when Liverpool travel on mass, it's because they've been traveling all NAS for years, and you have this red wave behind you and it does matter. It is a twelve month, whereas we often see at Manchester City, we see empty seats in the stands for games that will be packed anywhere else. And that's probably part of it, but I kind of do concur with you about the whole history thing. If you've got a functioning team. I'm like, what was Borussia Dortmund history when they went in one thousand nine hundred seven on won the Champions League against the history of the old lady of Taran like, well, there's obviously an exception to every rule. Well, I'm not saying they're an exception around Valencia when they went to a final. All I'm saying is if you have a functioning team a team that works on the field. I think that is obviously the ultimate criterion which are judged it's football matches, but maybe the twelve man has has a difference. I, I don't know that one from kind of know Akil Leaney was saying, I think key leaning could have been talking about my personal history when he was delivering those comments last season because he has been there done that. And so you don't panic when you're in certain situations. Maybe it's a a personal history or maybe it's the history of Walkin through the walls of the tunnel of of terrain. And you see all those great names on the wall and you think, oh, well, they did it. Why should I worry? I can't wait for them to get to like the quarterfinals and go out to like FC Porto and we have to say, well, hey, there eight, there's your. There's your example. I'm not saying portal have no history whatsoever. The Porto Monaco you're, but I'm just talking about Porto under Marino. I don't marine. You're talking about history when went to Old Trafford. Yeah, I'm when they won the UEFA Cup against Celtic who had the bigger history Celtic by fire and what they do. They beat them. Let's see. We continue now Benfica winning in Athens, three to Roma five, nil getting that goal differential up against Victoria pills. And yeah, it should be noted. Eddin gieco loves playing against Victoria peasant. That's a second hatch. Patrick against them. It one in the Europa league few years back and just imply verts scoring. His first champ is eagle dedicating it to team it. I'll have something more on that. I will say nothing then. Yeah. Well, it's a nice thing that you're about to say. I feel badly silencing you know, we'll have more on that. I prefer. I'm generous move this week. Thanks to a Twitter follower of ours who I will identify later on who identified a story for us. You denting the common man giving him props from your ivory castle. Book I'm as communism gets all right. I'm shoving five guys into an airport hotel on a vacation, so that's that's common man. I want you to temper you deliver that common from now on. Okay. Let's see. Bar Munich, one. I x one. What is happening exactly in Munich right now with this club, because if you look at where they're at a draw now, we do hold them to what might be an unfair standard and they've set that standard by how they performed over the last several seasons, but look at their last three matches a draw. Verse Augsburg right. Is not something you would expect then to no loss to hurt the Berlin. And now a home draw in the Champions League against, I ax having only seen highlights of this. I find it hard to be able to put my finger on it. But if you look at the team in terms of the spine key mate, sporting homos contra, Robin, Muller Levin dollars. I mean, you can't say, well, that's their b team. That was an experimental thing, even have Frank Rubery in the site. So from that point of view, I'm almost going to take the out card on credit. What is an extremely talented young. I excite that graph to draw like they went behind. Usually what happens when you go behind like that in Munich is you get you get hammered, but they set about their task Andrew and inducing Todd, which they had someone who I can't believe him saying this. I actually thought do Santosh was making the wrong move when he left the primarily, I'm I'm very wrong. Obviously, he played in a bowl for. Miso ri- they've fullback that was just wonderful for the goal am I XE played really well. There was this this gift Lysol of Zay as well receiving the ball on the right hand side and paying a forty yard pass across the field to straight onto the foot of his teammate. I-it's were very, very good on maybe This Munich team. Maybe I'll go back and what I said there, maybe the experience they're a bit leggy there little bit older. Maybe this team hasn't been updated in the way that Kovacs needed to their second right now in the Bundesliga which is a a sentence. I don't think I've said in a really long time, but now it isn't. It. One point only six games in there, but there's a lot of miles in Robin Molin Rebrith. You just look at that frontline there. Maybe that's got something to do with it. Like I haven't seen enough of them this season to make a definitive comment on them, but that's a young nippy confident extreme. Maybe that had more to do with it than anything could be CS k. Moscow and rail Madrid and Madrid lose at the Luzhniki which is now like a fortress luge nickname. I heard them say it was like all brought back such fond memories from the summer in the World Cup. The Luzhniki a year ago at this time would have meant nothing to me, but Rama adrit that's now three games without a goal for Real Madrid, which is also a sentence. I don't think I've said in a really long time. Now, in fairness to them, it's not like they didn't get close Maryono Benza Casimiro all hit the post in this one motoric Veron missed, really easy chances. So you know, I. I thought Jilin low Peggy afterwards said, oh, allow me to do it. Okay. In Champions League voice in the Champions League ten days ago, we played a magnificent game against Roma. Neither were we so great then no, always so bad. No football has these moments. It is not easy, but we must accept it and move on. I'm okay with that. Which is okay. But. This is three defeats in the first ten, which is the worst start of a manager in over the two Florentine Perez rains as the headman at Real Madrid on Dermot Corrigan posted a piece from Markelle by his Sanchez that was full of a hat. Know you have to translate so didn't come out perfect, but of a lot of its predict pretty good stuff that suggests the team has been weakened every summer over the last few years. One of the lines, my favorite lines was a battleship with blank cannons is how he described her, not rail Madrid without Renaldo. And also this is the GAM he he lays out the gambles rail. Madrid have taken every season over the last few years. Bail will not get injured. Benza will score more goals. Essential will emerge as a crack. Striker Marcelo does not need a substitute Rama. Some verandah not need rest. The years, do not go through modulation crews and they can always play. So. He saying that maybe this is all coming together to take its toll, the lack of reinvestment reinvigoration in the squat. I get what he's saying. That certainly makes sense. However, thick of like the names that you just rattled off there and then think of the line, it's like a battleship without what was it a battleship flank cannons that's insulting the name. Okay. Rinaldo is no longer there, but you the names, you just read off bail motoric crows Asensio. Marcello Kara hot like Rama's. They're still the still so. Good. See, I agree with you. The the talent is still there, but they might be tired. That's certainly possible be the minds of got up a little bit, but I mean that you can't play that to essential. You can't really play that to bale bale should be fresh. Well, bail is unfortunately for him. You know, the big concern was okay when Rinaldo leaves. This is now bales time he's gonna step in. He's going to be called upon to take on a much larger role for them. I think we all knew that was the case. The only question because I believe he has the talent. The only question was whether or not he could stay healthy and already we're seeing that even in a year where he did not go to the World Cup. A lot of these other guys did. He's having a hard time with that. Couldn't go in in this one. He missed out, dude, injury, Rama's, missed out, dude, injury. Kara hall left with an injury modric who was actually brought on as a sub because they were, I guess, trying to be careful with him. So you're right. There is a lot of mileage on these guys because you know they, this entire team essentially is coming off of a World Cup summer. So look, there's going to be growing pains. I think we had to know that that was going to be the case with Rinaldo what we see from Real Madrid right now through two Champions League matches and seven while league matches is not the finished article, you know, Rinaldo is a huge part of what they did. He's the face of the team for a decade. So I'm not ready to judge them just yet. It's too early to jewelries out, but you know, there's alarming things happening. This result three, no down away. It's the at halftime. The thought is go at three straight games without a goal is odd that with. There's enough. There's enough there that you wouldn't expect to see something like that. However, having said, all that they are tied atop the league right now with Barcelona who are having many of the same issues, we'll get to Barcelona after our break before that the only on and shack tar that ends to two and then there's Manchester United, nil nil against Valencia. The response you want after a three one defeat to West Ham away. That is all tell you, he's, he's, we'll meet over. They were booed by their home, support home support for Manchester United. By the way. Another thing that I will get to later on, oh, in the program, amazingly United have not one at home in all competitions since the opening day of the season that was against was against LeicesteR and they weren't even good that day. It's the first time in Marino's career that he's gone four consecutive matches without a win in four consecutive home matches without a win in all competitions. However, he seemed to be pleased with the effort afterwards. Yeah, I don't know effort is he made the point that some players don't care as much as others in the kind of aftermath spillover into the press conference. So so what happened at the weekend against west time, he played five at the back Scott MC. Tommy being one of those in the center, and they got beaten three one, and they went one, they'll down after five minutes on that kind of spilled over. Not that bad feelings spilled over into this game into the press conference. And he said, he believed that some players care more than others. So rob Dawson, Mark Ogden are ESPN guy said, well, we expect them to pack a team full of people who care, but I don't want to team if I mean, I know I'm basically accepting that they care at the base level that's required for professional footballer. What I need to see is that they can play and that they can put together something that's not just entertaining, but actually scores goals and gets results. And they failed again in that Andre Valencia. Remember I talked about Philadelphia union being football and constipation that was Valencia's well, Valencia had gweat is on the ball of botch y. They couldn't create the funnel. Third, like they were dreadful. Yeah. And they were there for the taking on again, you saw this limp clueless United who had Sanchez back in the side who had, you know Lulu. Kako rash furred. There should have been enough there to to put a really good I expected to see after the weekend. I don't know why expected it put. I expected to see Valencia bombed down the wing, Luke show bombed down the wing a real barnstorming response. That's what I defined as caring. I didn't see any that. I mean JJ it's Valencia which, okay, that's a name that carries a certain level of Cochet they had. They have one win in the league. Their fourteenth right now in lollygag like this is not some powerhouse that came into Old Trafford and United. Just another. Just again, look stock. Their feeble stodgy turgid just blah. I don't know what's going on there. It just again, it just seems dysfunctional you mentioned Romo Lukaku who seems to have hit kind of a rough patch, and there's some people who are starting to call for Marcus rash for two, maybe starting in central caucus placed centrally for United. I don't know about that. Well, Lukaku Bradford himself, his set pieces corners were dreadful. He did. He came closer to scoring than anyone else crossmark Carl, that one onto the top of the crossbar I know, but it's thin grew over nineteen minutes help. But I mean, that's alright, right? They got Kaku. He's just not giving them anything. People keep talking to me about, you know, Harry Kane is tired from this World Cup. When are we going to start talking about that for Roma Lukaku Harry Kane scoring goals right now week after week, he seems to be actually bounced from whatever that rough patch or form was. He seems to be okay. Lukaku right now, looks like the more fatigued, great English or or great striker playing in England, I would say as well. There's not. Not exactly a supply of balls wizened into the box from to attack. There's no linked up, joined up midfield play where you could say all the really plan to the strengths of Lukashenko that's not happening. Look at Alexa Sanchez. I would've thought the perfect foil for Lukaku. Alexis Sanchez just plan to the right of the left of them are getting in around him that he create loads of chances for Kaku, but that's not happening either. This is a team that is not functioning at all. It's been disappointing. No question about that. I'll tell you what we. We'll take a quick very quick break here, so don't go anywhere. And then we've got more Wednesday Champions League matches coming up on the other side. My name is Lauren. I'm thirty three. I didn't want my identity to be the smoking mom. My first experience with jewel. I do remember being like distance, good. It's it's, it's like a cigarette, but not. I don't miss smoking at all. Like I can officially say it grosses me out jewel is the tobacco alternative that delivers nicotine satisfaction without cigarette Asher lingering odor make the switch and Jay. Dot com. Slash sports warning. This product contains nicotine. Nicotine is an addictive chemical. Jodi our place. Say inside the post, it's been a great guy and Mexican wrapping up hair, wonderful chance. He doesn't fly. Oh, back now on caught on that. I always just a bit too excited. Yeah, you text me something. Can we begin here? Yes, sure. And I think what you text me was really, really good and it it. It summed up the kinda guy that you are and it's a good thing. I wish I wasn't neutral watching this game because the only people on earth who are miserable watching it right now, we're Spurs fans. It's being opened on wide open chances almost all for biased, but still you could appreciate the magnificence of what you saw tonight, especially in the first avenue heard Martin Tyler say they're in in the call is he says, it's been a great game. Yeah, neutral fans probably loved watching that game because Barcelona in the first half were out of this world, good Spurs were lucky to be only two down. I thought I'm Barcelona score two minutes into the game, Philip Cotino cure and trippy. Caught out nice ball played into Jordi Alba who I thought was excellent. The night wreaking havoc trippy. I was having a hard time with him throughout the course of that game album. You know, Hugo Reza's back now and. He he's a great keeper. I, I've really enjoyed him, but I don't know, man, I've gone back and watch the clip of the first goal. I have no idea what he's doing. I just don't think you come rushing out for that. There's no need. What do you think that's a little bit of. He's been out injured. He's also been out with a kind of a cloud over him of over what happened with the drink driving charges on. He just wants to, hey Ray, I'm, I'm back. I'm going to do this. I'm a good guy just wants to show the fan something and in his eagerness, he's done something that he had known to do. Yeah. And look, I don't wanna make it sound like he was insane to do it. I'm just saying, I question it because no matter what, whether he stays in gold or not, Barcelona are going to be presented with a scoring once he takes rather my goalie being net to deal with it because if he was he saves now, look, I'll say this Katina's finish was was sensational. There's no keeper, but like where he placed it just nicked off the inside of the post. It's the underrated finish of the night because he's got to get through some bodies to score that. Right. And he drills it perfectly. Yeah. And then look after that rockets teaches goal. I'll tip my hat again, though it was, you know, Cotino with a chance kind of scuff, s- it somehow keeps it in a, it's a tremendous job by Felipe Patino. He keeps that ball back into space into a dangerous area where there's no way he can see rockets moving into that spot. But he knows he's smart and he knows let me just at least put this ball back into the center of the area and rocket just puts his the full force of his foot through it. It's an incredible finish again on the inside of the post standing foot off the ground as well. When he strikes it, you know, they always tell you get your body over, get your head over to keep it down, but you get the requisite power, his shape everything, Andrew, that like those feelings, those volley females under many neutrals felt sorry, mount, I saw because you text me and you said in fairness to you, you're not. You're not as bitter as me about these things. You text me straight away and you said all expletive racketed that was that was bitter that was spent. No, it wasn't FM. It was. Oh, my God exaltation. Like you say, in a moment of pleasure, and it was no, it was hardly a moment of pleasure. I got great pleasure from happy not because of you, but it it. It gave me the feelings on the ball feelings and then look leeann messy was. It was just classic Champions League big stage Wembley messy just owning the night. He was sensational. The fact that he only scored two goals is kind of a minor travesty in all this because he was good enough to probably had five or six hit the post twice. He scored enough against English teams. But the interesting thing was so he hits the post now for a second time and it's one of those. Okay. Sigh of relief. We're still in it and then Spurs come right back down lamelo who once again, JJ I thought was fantastic in this game for Tottenham plays plays in Harry, Kane, Kane, still had a lot to do, and canes finish was brilliant. I know candid, that perfectly. That was really, really great by him, and it was it was a word, the goal on the night because you know, he's, he's a player that in the big moment steps up. Particularly in the Champions League for spars on it should be that should be noted. He deserved his goal there. He used the defender perfectly bent into bottom corner, put, like you said to me in the text it, it was the preponderance of chances. We're going slow on his way and you're definitely just hoping you get a bit of luck and maybe nickel the one, right? Some of the luck that went against Spurs against inter, like maybe some of that will come back our way in this one. It doesn't because they've got Messi who then right after the cane goal, he goes down Jordi Alba again down the left side plays in a ball. I don't even know if it was meant for messy Luis Suarez with a brilliant dummy gets the messy. Eventually any finishes on was at scuffed or not. I couldn't even tell, but he finishes in and it's like that it's three one credit, the Spurs though. Because from that moment on they dominated that game pushing hard, you know to to obviously equalizer even go ahead. Lamelo gets a goal off at deflections and they continue to push on push on. They had chances Lucas Mora was going to score if not for a brilliant, brilliant deflections to put it. Out of play for a corner kick, but I thought more had the equalizing goal and then JJ I don't wanna do this. I don't want to go off on a rant or anything like that because I'm not, you know, that's not typically what I what I do, but like I, I've kind of had I, I can't see Mussa soco play for Spurs anymore. I can't. And I know that's among Tottenham fans. It's so cliche, you know, I, it's like a a married man, having an affair on his wife with a secretary like this is an annoying cliche like, oh, you're, but that's, that's the soco like it's a cliche among Spurs fans, but just watching him tonight. His giveaway Tottenham probably weren't going to go on and score at the end to tie that game. But like he scuffed a shot. The ball was put into him at one point and he just like skies it to the moon, just a terrible. And then at the end of the game, obviously it's his giveaway. That leads to messy second to ice it. It's just like there has to like, is there anybody in like the youth setup right now that can be brought in there just has there has to be. Option. Now they took son off for him, and and son is still working his way back into form. But here's the problem. And here is where the conversation with Tottenham always circles back to the lack of activity activity in the transfer window. They have to go to soak. Oh, because look what they're dealing with against Barcelona on the night. No Ericsson, no deli alley, no yon for tongue. No Mussa damn belly. They're dealing with injuries right now. The they're hurting. What does what they, they have no choice. What does it say about Kieron Dyer on his his. Sorry. Excuse me, Eric, dire. What does it say about Eric? Dire in the setup of Spurs right now when you go into battle against buyers, Lorna missing all those players you've mentioned. And in the two, you've got Harry wings and Victor win Yama. What what I mean? When YoM is hardly played this season on Harry wings, is Harry wings still you would think in his formative years as young professional? Certainly dot just seems like mismatch. I mean gets rackets. Thirty. Two players that I like one Yama was probably lucky to still be on the field. At the end of that one. You know he was. He's he's a force that's one way of putting it. But you know, he's a risk for two yellows pretty much every game he steps out there, but I like him and I like wings too, but you're right. It's a tall order for two guys that don't have a ton of playing time right now. And now you're being asked to play against Barcelona mid week, lucrative Barcelona, they were. They were excellent. The fact that it was four two is almost a favor to Spurs because it could have been. It certainly could have been worse. Well, I think Spurs fans can look back on that game with some level of fondness. Glad you said this because I wanted to tell you that. I think I in the the moral victory table. I mean Spurs are ten time champs, like we're going for the record here in the moral victory table on so tired of that. I'm just like, you're right. I taught once again were were exiting a big Tottenham match saying. Well, you know, we're patting them on the head. Well, you look, you guys, at least you guys played well, good job son. Here I have a cookie, you know that that's Spurs and it's every time you think we're past that now we just they can't clear that hurdle. They're doing great in the moral victory table, but that like they can't get past that against event is last year. You know, you did come back and turn against Chelsea and the FA Cup semifinal well, that you lost four too, but that was one of the thrilling games of the year. Wait, thank you Tottenham for really naming us. Your naming out the most vicious Spurs Memed that goes round where the trophy cabinet has nothing in it except pieces of paper that say, almost beat event as yeah, should've beaten. Chelsea on this one will be added to it. I against Barcelona now, look, it's not all true because it took four points off Real Madrid last year in the champion's league. But because of the way it ended against you, you kind of wind up looking past that there's there's just no way restauration there. I felt that frustration because I felt you should definitely have gone through a last season that was just golden opportunity. Then that's they do that. They do that pretty well. They've left themselves in a tough position. Obviously, you're going to have to beat PSV in both gone going to have to be Inter Milan in the return lie. I think they can do that. I would not put that beyond spars a big night at Wembley are Nick. So k. don's aware wherever they end up playing. I could see them doing that by the way, speaking of the pitch. How about that? What was going on with it over the weekend? There was a an Anthony, Joshua boxing bout. Oh, that's we're not fight. Joshua fought at Wembley on. That's why that will sculler perfectly square right at of. You could tell exactly how the ring was situated like, that's that's what that I was hoping. It'd be something much more embarrassing for Spurs funds, like Shania Twain concert, right? Or or. Yeah, like a pop patrol a dog festival. Let's see. PSV Eindhoven and inter to one, it goes to enter. They come from behind once again Cardi getting the winner PSV though. To their credit a little bit unlucky Samir hand down of it's probably should have been sent off a red card for handling the ball outside of the box and Dak late. Instead, he was given just a yellow PS. We also hit the post and then ultimately inter got their winner when a Cardi scored into an empty net when PSV's keeper and defender kind of collided into one another. So it was a difficult night. Fans were angry there. I think some objects were rained down on the field after the non red card, and then inter scoring shortly after that to equalize. But it is internet in bar at the top of that group with six points. Each way ahead with Tottenham NPS v. sitting on zero Lokomotiv Moscow losing to ca and this JJ. This was very much your. Game of the season sponsored by Sally field by Kona plan, Kevin McKenzie. To SCO, your first club. Go eighty eight th minute. The young American that's twenty year old fresh-faced American kid scores a header to win a Champions League match for Schulkin. Oh, that feels good. Yeah, that feels particularly good. What am I saying? What am I saying? All the time? Your best players playing in the best leagues at the highest level doing their thing. You just it energizes you a, no. You see him sat there in that midfield role for for the US during the Sam, right? Like he's not just being a wallflower like he's not just blending into the action? No, no, no. He scoring winners in the eighty. Eighth minute of Champions League matches. It feels good. It's very, very good. He's look, you're not piling on the the praise. He hasn't just come off the bench and on that by the way, he's a consistent starter in this team on the people that shot a rate him so highly, which is also a good you like me Momo my God. This is all just like. Ramon overload. Exactly. And look, he his role in the team, particularly for this. You wouldn't US men's national team which we will talk about on our second pot of this week. That's an important role and the fact that he has a goal in his locker to is even more important. Yes, certainly is for a position for a guy who that's not necessarily what he's going to be called upon. Some of the table is. Yeah. But yeah, he Weston mckennie it's it's all coming together. This is, you know, I, I don't mean to be making light of this or anything, and jumping way ahead. But this is the kind of progress that you want to be seeing like he's not coming off the bench. He's he's a guy that shock is asking to play an important role for them in important games. Like you said, this is this is exactly the direction and the trajectory that you hope that these young players would remain on, and we will have more to say about that US men's national team for the upcoming friendlies on that second pod. Yep. We continue PS g romping over red star Belgrade's. Six one, four, nil at halftime? Yeah. Neymar with a hat trick is won it all. Look. It all feels hollow because we see PS g doing this against opposition that we deem to be subpar, but then losing at Anfield against Liverpool. So we're just not, you know, we know their history last year. Okay. PS g you know, they're doing good. They did beat Byron in the group stage last year, but then they get their chance against Real Madrid and they go out like, so it just they are the the example right now of, you know, like. When it's when it's money time, can we trust them? And unfortunately, you don't know until you're in it like these results are all fine and good, but we just don't know what they mean. Bleacher reported the highlight package of what neymar Dade ano- wasn't named brilliant, and that's that's what the guy can do. And really the only thing he did for me, he took a second goal very well in stride, and the free kick was very, very good. But a lot of it was just, you know, he'd faint any dribble round a guy x RYKE's, still name what he is. Name are put. If you if you break down just the general play of red star, you're like, you absolutely expect this. This is not an indicator of anti. You're right. But the second goal, Andrew, they had four occasions to clear the ball. They were so bad. It was incredible and I couldn't understand it because it's the team that grown dote in against Napoli who I think as a team, not an individual, a group of players as a team are better than PS g so I don't know what change in their game plan. I hear you, but you know, it feels not totally fair. To me because if it was Messier Rinaldo that registered a hattrick regardless of who the opposition was, we'd be saying the l. here we go Champions League. This is when these guys. We're just following the Steve Nash lying. He while he played against the cards that we're dealt, but I'm telling you these cards, are there feeble card? Well, the one thing I'll say about PSG's they've scored three or more goals in every single match this season except the Liverpool match. So they are. And some of those are against, you know, we say, say what we want about French opposition. Not every team playing in league on is a joke. No, they're not right. So I understand that on this, but, but this is Imbaba. This is Cavani. This is name are. This is Robbie, oh, this is Mooney de Maria scored today team. Look, it's a collection of players that even if they aren't functioning in in their fullest sense are playing to it a game plan that we can all agree with should be able to take our teams like Redstar and they certainly did six one. Let's see. Oh, JJ Borussia Dortmund were an action. They won three now and it leads us into this. It's time a one Christian. All that really. That's right. JJ young man. Wonder why. Now, Kristen sick did not play in this game today? No, he did not. He has a calf problem. Yeah. Bruce Dortmund termed at as torn calf fibers, which is so vague because we don't mean you. We're mostly experts. We need to know is a grid woman is a grid too. What kind of tear are we dealing with hair darkened. Dortmund doctors. I don't like it. I mean, no, because I'm starting, you know, he starting to miss more and more action. He missed a couple booms league matches earlier, thought they thought, I think that he was going to be able to to Halley this one, and they have attempted in the past with him before to have rest periods. He did that one. He had one rest period at the end last season where is just pretty much left on the bench or out of the squad. So this is concerning he's young, and now you're starting to see a small, a small resume of injuries beginning to appear and. It's concerning for a couple of reasons. One, I just I want him to be healthy like I want him playing off. That's that's the obvious one. I don't want him to become a guy who like some people. I, I really believe are just genetically predisposed to suffering muscular injuries. The I believe that too. So I really hope that he's not one of those guys and it's very early to be saying that, but it's something to keep an eye on and to for for all the reasons that we were praising Weston mckennie a moment ago, you know, he's getting opportunities. He's playing well, Bruce Dortmund look like they're a pretty good team this season. They're doing well in the champion's league in their first right now in the Bundesliga they've got some good players like there is part of me. That worries. Okay. We know how good this guy is, and he's obviously going to continue to play. But like there is always that possibility at at a high profile club of having some other guy move in and take your spot. And now all of a sudden his opportunities are becoming less and less. You just you just everything's been so good, so good. So good. Don't want to see progress stunted in any way. And I think of the posse mid for one of the goals against northern Berg was it, it's just he dribbles past three players and without looking, he plays this perfect ball in, no, it's expertly finished, and you just see why we don't have a single player without kind of talent. We don't have a single other player. We could even begin to think about plugging in if this guy is injured and that's where the real fear comes in. Yeah, but Bruce Dorman do defeat Monaco, three nil. I don't have anything on the game. I just only have sick related matters information to Athletico, Madrid, defeating club Rouge three one Grey's men show. Yeah. Athletico not known this season for scoring goals, but they do put three in in that one. They did have a a nil nil at the burn Abou against Real Madrid, which I guess they would have viewed as a positive result. A FC Porto one gal Tassara nil and then JJ last but not least. Napoli one, Liverpool, nil. Thanks to Lorenzo and sin. Yeah. This holiday to. Dictate it looked like we were headed towards a nil nil, which I would have taken at that juncture quite happily, just look at the stats, Andrew shots, fourteen shots for not believe wound gold, five on target, Liverpool shots, four shots, zero on target. This was a night where one snobby Ketu went off and he went off early. So I don't wanna talk about that. Liverpool were playing stunning football up until that heat, they weren't well. He also nearly created a goal for Napoli on his own when he misplayed a back pass. Right? But generally speaking, Kate was going to give you that kind of drive in the midfield that suddenly when you take them out and put Henderson and you're not gonna have. So you've Henderson and Milner in there and when album and there was no link between the midfield on the attack, but I have to give credit to Ancelotti in particular. He clearly watched the game against Chelsea at the weekend, which was probably the game of the season in the primarily. Terms of just pure quality, football. He targeted the fullbacks Andrew. Now remember you made an awkward analogy just minutes ago about him. The boss who's cheating on his wife with the secretaries cliche, it's a cliche, but it's an analogy nonetheless. Are you ready for this analogy, go for Ancelotti played four, four, two. So that gave. Reese and Callahan all this space to bomb ope embalmed down and he kind of played without note wingers if Ancelotti was you've seen the filming girls, right? No, actually you haven't seen Mingo though, but keep going? Well, I thought he is Lindsay Lohan who's moved in from South Africa or wherever she's come from, and she's trying to integrate into the school and she sees the hot girl, the popular girl table, and she's none of that. So Lindsay Lohan is Ancelotti right with his four, four, two. When do you hear anyone talk about four, four, two anymore. It's very out of fashion. So he goes over Lindsay. Lohan does Lindsay Lohan tries to sit sit with, you know, Gordie Ola and Klopp, and NATO's men tries to sit with the CU group and they're like, you are not sitting with us because look at you with those four, four, two dungarees. That is so nineteen eighty-seven. You think you can sit. Here with our back three and are playing it out of the back. Yeah. What are you doing you play with wingers and two midfielders in a flat for my God. It's grows. So basically the mean girls. I can't believe I've. I've just compared onto Lottie to Lindsay Lohan. I think you nailed it. And now I see Lindsay Lohan with a permanently raised eyebrow a gnome scared. But the point being is he looked at the way Liverpool plates and he went out. He also didn't stature trees Martin's, you know, that would be a player. I immediately start. He got his tactics perfectly right. And the white players caused Liverpool trouble all night on. It was no shock that it came from a a wide player, white position, not cross into ensign. Yeah. And. On he was the one player I feared because I think he's brilliant. If I could add anyone from the Italian league to to the roster of Liverpool, it will be him. I think he's outstanding grins Winston you. So here we are. Liverpool aren't dotted sloppy passing amid field that was wasn't working and a front three that really get on the ball. I mean, the stat speak for themselves when was the last time liberal only at four shots. And again, it's you're right. The worst performance under cloth a when not under Klopp forever, obviously not. But the worst, the worst performance of of recent memory on, here's the problem. There is no time for for reflection, Manchester City on Sunday. Yeah. I mean, you said last week we talked about Liverpool. You said this is a this is a difficult stretch over the Chelsea mid week, and then Chelsea at the weekend. And then this one and then city. This is this is a gauntlet. That's why getting out of out of dodge tonight with a point would have been fabulous and we don't have that now, but I'm wondering, cannot Steeler reserve resolve focus. The minds for. The weekend because it's a huge game now. Well, almost more worrying than the result because ultimately, I do think in this competition, Liverpool will be okay. When push comes to shove, I think, okay, you looked at your group you saw at Napoli. Yeah, there's a chance that we don't get out of there with the full three points or even one point, but the navy Kedah injury coming up. I, I can only assume now within that come off in the sixteenth minute of an important Champions League match that he's not going to be ready to go at the weekend against Manchester City, and that feels like a potential problem it. Yes, it it does it kind of limits what Klopp wants to do with this site as well? I should just say that Kellyanne was denied by Alison dreams Martin's hits the buyer after brilliant, Mario cross, which was actually agree. Save off Martin's from Allison. Allison had a huge game tonight. Andrew, his value was was massive. That could have been much worse. It could have been two or three. Yeah. So there you go. That's our look at the Champions League, which of course will return later this month. We've got red cards and man of the match coming up in just. A sec, bud JJ Indochino.

Now let's start with red card. Let's see. I'm gonna go quickly here. Okay, we'll allow it Manchester. United is my red card a little bit of a different angle. I don't want to pile on because that's kind of what like a lot of these podcasts I feel like are becoming. But to me, this was a sign of where things have gotten to with United Champions. League nights were an event at Old Trafford and maybe in the most poignant side yet of where morale. All has fallen to. There's this leading up to the Valencia game loads of tickets, remained unsold prompting United to send this message to some of their members. This was a text message sent to people's phones. Come to OT all Trafford for tonight's Champions League game, verse Valencia, visit mandated dot com slash UCLA or walk up and buy tickets from the ticket office. Did you think you'd see the day when day of Manchester United? Are begging fans of theirs to show up for a Champions League match? By the way, know not a match against like a small Russian club or Victoria plants, and we're talking about Spanish opposition team that people have heard. I know they're struggling in the league, but still on this club that cherishes the European that's not an under twenty three match or or you know, a preseason friendlier. So this is a championship game against Valencia. Yeah, capacity at Old Trafford seventy five thousand. They did wind up with seventy three thousand five hundred. Not a sell out which again, champions they get Old Trafford I think is disappointing up at the fact that that's heck's message is being sent by the club to fans day of the match these. The fans are. They're growing tired of what they're seeing right now. I, I can't necessarily say that I blame them. This is not like me ripping on fans for being bad fans. I you know, I get. There's there's frustration there and for whatever reason, whether it's the manager, whether it's players, they just don't really seem to feel a connection to this team right now and they're starting to show it. I wanted to Mark old bridge, go to the game. God, we gotta get him on this. We have to get him on the podcast. We really do my red carrots up. Well, Steve, Bruce, Andrew sacked by Aston Villa this morning, and it Twas a pretty undignified end to his tenure. So villa blow. Tuna lead last night against Preston. Then they made a last minute penalty to win an ended up drawing three, three at home to Preston. The game was it was crazy. It really was. It was tobacco prior to the game, though. Aston Villa manager. Well, actually, let's just play then Huilan's his penalty that I mean, it could have been a four, three win for villa. But this happened at glad we got the chance to win, instill pitch time any Maxwell saves. And that's the final whistle. It was the last kick of the match an unforgettable match, Phillip. Now, I'm sure Bruce thought the writing was on the wall. There not is that was one that they should have one and they didn't. So I'm sure he thought he was going to get as the old song says sacked in the morning, but this was even before the game. Steve. Bruce was hit with a cabbage, some fine brought a cabbage Villa Park and threw it out Steve Bruce. So now, Andrew, if you'll allow me, I would like to place this cabbage in the context of vegetables in the English game play the sad music. Graham Taylor gets up superimposed on his head by the tabloids as his England side fall, turn failed, qualify for World Cup, nineteen Ninety-four. It's fan yarn, Ericsson injurious sweet and sour puns as his England draw two, two with his native Sweden at World Cup, two thousand and six feuded. No, the Swede is a root vegetable and a member of the turn of family that originated as a cross between the cabbage and the turnip and now it comes full circle. Andrew. Finally, eighteen a man brings a cabbage to villa pack, frozen that Steve, Bruce in protest at one win in nine games, West Midlands. Police are trying to identify the assailant. That's emotional. That is sad. That's vegetables in English football brought to you by caught off site caught off sides, man of the match my man of the match JJ kinda referenced this a little bit earlier, but I'll start with this props to Dustin gray who sent the story to us on Twitter, and it's one that we miss from actually back in late August. But I've only seen it now and I was once told it's better to be late than never the story sent us was sort of a follow up on the tragedy surrounding I x is young feel happy Nori which we covered originally. Yeah, you may remember that in a friendly against verte Bremen back in July twenty seventeen. He he collapsed with what was later diagnosed as a cardiac arrhythmia. He survived but suffered serious permanent brain damage. Eventually he was able to start breathing on his own. And then this past August, he came out of what had been a year long coma. His brother said that he can recognize people and communicate in very small way. It's it's an awful story. And there really is not a happy ending to this, but I did want to at least give a shout out to Norys former teammates Justin Cliver who you mentioned for Roma. I mean, Eunice of Napoli now Kevin Dick's fiorentina and now a Felipe Sandler of Manchester City all at some point or another former teammates of noise, and they've all decided to honor Nori by switching their jersey numbers to his number thirty four, which I thought was a small, but certainly nice gesture for what is a really, really sad situation. So we obviously root for his continuing recovery and I'll root for these guys because I think that's a nice thing that they're doing for a friend of theirs that is really going through an incredibly difficult time. Thais, Dosen great for that. I appreciate them flagging that went up my man of the match and I saw this on the BBC and again, this is something that really touched me is kind of sad into the podcast put. I think this.
