"Some sad news today. I need gorham has passed away at the age of 58. The legendary Scottish goalie not only played for Scotland, but also with rangers and Greg you knew him well. Yeah, I mean, he was a teammate with Scotland and he was a guy that was a fierce competitor in his time at rangers when we played against him and the old firm, the big Derby. He had most of his huge success at rangers, but he was at one point, it was a number one goalkeeper for Scotland. He had, he was part of a nearer and the 90s with the late great Walter Smith, the manager who passed away not too long ago where they had huge success. And were unstoppable for many, many years in Scotland and even unbelievable goalkeeper. It was never the he was not the tallest when you consider goalkeepers under 6 foot. He never looked to fetish Andy but in terms of short stopping. And he brought the hearts I can tell you a lot of Celtic players and a lot of Celtic fans and a lot of Celtic managers, many, many times. When Celtic and I remember before my time in the era of the late told me bonds and when they had van heydon can cadet and decanio, they outplayed range of so many times, but when the league because everything they faced rangers, they faced gorham and gorham was incredibly, he was a man inspired in these big games and to see the nerds of a couple of months ago and they've been terminal and now I'm passing away so quickly. It's quite sad. 58 years old, but I'm afraid cancer spares nobody and it will be remembered and there is a fantastic fantastic goalkeeper. It was a pleasure to play with them and it was really difficult to play against them. You know when a football player died, you know? It's a little bit of yourself, you know? Which is earth and in fact who dies because it's part of our generation and I follow him bring chambers thing and being absolutely fantastic also with Scotland. So you feel hurt really, like you knew him. I never met him, but allowed me to have a thought as well on Paul Mariner. We used to work with us and died like a year ago. And we all missed those people because they were the greatest in the game. The great characters in the game. I mean, the game has changed somewhat and there's a microscope now that maybe swaps the personalities of players coming out and the modern era and not always but sometimes because of the warrior but social media and the cameras and these guys, they were characters in the day and they live life to the full and it was a great year to play. No matter what this is, yeah we didn't look after ourselves as Richard had done and there was not spot signs and blah blah blah but boy, these guys had a great time and I can tell you the rangers team the rangers players that Andy played and we all respected them even though we were their biggest rivals. If we saw them having a beer and Glasgow, we'd go and have a beer with them. We'd have a chat and we'd buy each other to drink here and there and then when we got on the field we're trying not lump so of each other. That's the way we did it back in the day and Andy was a huge part of that. So a pretty sad day for Scottish football I have to say with a loss of one of the greats of the modern era. For what a beautiful way to remember someone who was a legend in Scotland..

"To replace what they are essential. He's not going to replace Vince's junior and that's a slight on him. And when Angelo says that one of the best players in the last ten years and the Premier League, a guy who carried a former club for quite a few seasons, pretty much on his own, when you've got enchiladas in, I actually prefer that the players at the moment, that tells you what he's been all about at Real Madrid. And yeah, I get the entities, but it hasn't looked after himself. He admitted it himself, he came back over with. Now, this is not the 90s when we used to do that and think we could get away with it. The game has changed. The way that the players approach the game has changed, the way that the managers and the clubs and the sports scientists approach it. Now, we wouldn't have liked it to us out on the extent. And specifically, the British players, because it was nerdy eyes, but that's the way the games and these elite clubs are structured. No, and when you go there, you've got to bet your bottom dollar that you have to adhere to what these clubs want to be the best that you can. And he has not been that. He's not even been close. So this is just wishful thinking that you'll just plug him in all of a sudden and he lights up the batteries reach us and he's going to be the oldies and hazard. No. That shepherd's sealed a good 24 months ago. In my opinion. It's really tough to think, especially wishful thinking to think that we're going to see that version of him that we saw with Chelsea. Speaking of Chelsea, Frank Labeouf. Taking advantage that you're here with us. You have physically. So you can't run away. You can't say your Internet is down because we want to ask you. It's cheaper than that. The French one. I'm sorry. Shut down. So we want to know an interesting list from you. You're 5 top worst transfers with Chelsea. Well, I'll tell you..

"A case of trying to kind of explain some of the mechanisms. There's a couple of different things going on at the same time here. One, of course, is the overall economic situation of the club. And the other is the question of fulfilling the financial fair play rules in La Liga, which by the way, a rules that are put in place before the event rather than after the events. This isn't a case of looking at your money and saying, right, you have to pay a fine or you have to pay some sort of punishment because you've broken the rules. If you try and register players and you are not within that criteria, you simply can not register them. So in that sense, Barcelona have already paid for their mistakes. And one very simple way of explaining that is that they lost Lionel Messi. Now the greatest player in their entire history, they lost him because of that financial difficulty. The other thing that we should probably explain here is that this €207.5 million that comes in is just a part of an attempt to regenerate money. And so that doesn't immediately go, here's €207 million, that's judges 7 million years on spending on players. It doesn't work like that. There's a huge amount of balancing going on, so it will be that there will be the hope maybe of somewhere closer to €400 million for another 15%, then maybe the BLM thing will go through as well. There will be some sales, I'm sure of players, there will be some players who depart, they try and save money on their salaries, for example, leng lei, although they'll have to pay a bit of that. They'll try with them titty, but it's not that easy, of course. And this is what they discovered last summer. They had a whole load of players they thought they could move on, that just said, when I actually, I'm staying. I'm not going anywhere. And so this all of this goes hand in hand has there are a lot of operations going on. So it's not entirely fair, I think, to say, well, here's 207 million. And look, they're spending it again. Well, they'll spend some of it. And they'll spend solving if they can balance across the board, not just here's my money and out it goes again. Yeah, which we know what that balancing act, of course, it would be to try to sell maybe Frankie the young. So my question, Mark, is it true what Joanna Porte is saying or is this just a strategy to maybe get Manchester United to pay a little bit more? I think he's bluffing in terms of there's a lot of clubs that won't frankly young. Of course a lot of people would like frankly, but this some of the market is different and Frank and young is on the top of anyone's privacy about from my united. I think if you look around the clubs in Europe, if there was another buyer out there that bas would have been able to negotiate a bit harder, I was told a couple of days ago that united and baths have pretty much agreed to fee. What is holding it up is Dion, the young is reluctant to leave Barcelona but knows you may have to. So united in Barcelona business, but it is an issue with Deion and his wages are fatter for united as well as Barcelona. Apartments in huge wages at Barcelona, wages that even united wouldn't pay. So he has to decide whether to stay at Barcelona and make it difficult for them to bring the players in or as you go to man united. So for me, this isn't about a lot of other clubs once in Frank and young, I think the Porter is bluffing on this, but I do think that united sort of a battlefield over the line because he isn't convinced by this horrible word project that ten hackers go to the United States. It's not a great project if people like Ronaldo on a jump ship straight away but it's still there to be done and at the moment it's not done until it isn't done until it is done I should say. Then he's a Barcelona player and you can never trust man united to get a deal done until he's done. They can force you to pay another ten or 20 million. For Barcelona at the moment that goes a certain amount away. So it could be, it could be a bluff and that way. And why wouldn't you play a short strategy and say, well, you thought you were getting beyond, but things have changed for us, so maybe if you want them now and as Marcus said many times on the shore, united have been very slow in coming forward, they have just left managers out to dry, but if bassa think they can get ten, 15, 20 more, why wouldn't they do that? And they're predicament. And let's be honest, it's a 50 50 split here because they need the money and Manchester United. They need the players. So I'm going to have to give one this one. I think this deal will get done. It seems to me, but it may just cost man united a wee bit more than the initially fought. Yeah. I think it's a strategy..

"The opportunity to be more of a collective. So I think if united think about it properly, they will let him go because ten hack can then rebuild properly without the guide that's costing half a million pounds a week in wages. But is the guy that scored more goals than anybody else last season? So I think Ronaldo has left out in the lurch a little bit here. I think he's left it so late that as Craig said, did mister N Darwin Nunez if he ever had a chance of beating Liverpool some in the first place, which I doubt Robert lavender's hearts are in Barcelona. So if he doesn't go to Barcelona, ends up at United, I'd imagine that Barcelona would make sure that Frank had a young, does it go to man united. And they need a midfielder. So they've missed out on even players like richarlison, who's now gone from Everton to Tottenham who could have done a job for a year or two, a proven Premier League goal scorer. It's left unite in a really difficult position. The only good thing for another Lee is that it frees up a lot of money on the wage bill to bring somebody in. But all the deals have been done. Harlan's done. Nunez is done, which is done. You know, Gabriela jazz has gone so they're in a real bad situation and it's because Ronaldo has left it so late to tell the kid who wants to go. This should have been two months ago, but for whatever reason it hasn't been done. And maybe united bow the heads in the sun a little bit by not actually addressing it when they couldn't. Send how could have said right at the outset. I need to speak to Ronaldo as soon as I could talk it to the job in a major, I need to solve analysis situation that. We're in July, there's supposed to be a Bangkok on Friday on the first leg of the summer tour is Ronaldo going to be there. Was he not been addressed before that? So everybody's at fault here, but the ultimate problem is there's no solution because all the best deals have been done already. There's no short term solution, but this is the kind of opinion you might have to take for all the bad recruitment. I'm afraid. Because he's not the future, is he? He's just not the future. So all you're doing is putting some more band aids over until you can possibly get somebody else or do they say as Martin was saying, okay, we're going to have to live with us. We might have to adopt. We might have to bring some of the law and maybe we'll just say some of these short term. There's a little older or maybe we'll just go and try and Liverpool and set it up for a season also as play and just mix everybody around. I mean, it's leaving the manager short. There's no doubt about it at the moment if it was to happen. But looking at the bigger picture, getting them off the wages is way too old and united really have to have a longer term approach to this problem that they have. Well, the thing is another opportunity for ten act to get another player from AX because it seems to get players from there to create a new team because he has to, but he's going to be a problem, another problem and in fact the status and the image of Manchester United doesn't go well with that new announcement. I think it's not well. It's not good for the club because these are better results, but a better image also. Well, it's the status that they've been trying to get back for so many years and it seems to be a little bit difficult. Now, you mentioned the IX ten ag, we know they had a successful run with him, of course, in the Champions League. Here's what you want to say on Frankie the young.

"I'm probably has happened in his career. Maybe he accentuated an injury because he was upset at being left out or whatever else. I'm sure it has happened at some point. It's entirely plausible. I just don't remember off the top of my head. However, I don't remember this happening in recent years. What I do remember is Cristiano's teammates at Juventus and at Real Madrid, and early on at united as well, generally praising his professionalism, saying that, yes, he's a diva in an egomaniac, but he's a phenomenal teammate. Yeah, of course. This has been the consistent message that we've had. Even from you live, where in the end, they weren't sorry to see him leave. Sami Khedira told us. Yeah, all right, Sammy. One of many, right? And Gavin Jules meet, we spoke to him. So this would seem to me to be so out of character for christiano to do at this stage. And I think from United's perspective, I think I like the fact that rules are rules and whatever. But if you're signing Cristiano Ronaldo, you're not signing a normal footballer. And to some degree, you make allowances. Sir Alex Ferguson made allowances for Eric Cantona. And we know now for Roy Keane as well, albeit in a different way. Joaquin was allowed to go and bully Juan Sebastian veron in a way that maybe other footballers weren't allowed to do, right? So, you know, having said that, I know it's Ronaldo, so it becomes a story, but are we really going to go and dump this on him? No, no, no, no one is dumping. No, but I think there's some media that maybe are going to go down that road. For sure though, is yesterday on that pitch. There was a huge leadership problem almost a united. Okay, so perfect transition to the united captain. Do you want to discuss? I was not even saying I don't want to well you spoke to him after the game. Yeah, and he was happy with the first half. And rightly so, could I explain why they were so happy with his defending in the first half? It was happy with the weather template. And then I have to say, I bought all day because I was going to ask him, why on earth did you let the ball go between your leg on that the brown second goal? Because really I want your input on this and I know the game goes fast and it's really quick. However, on the foot and shot that the rear Paris, right? Right into Maguire's feet there in his path. It can easily kick the ball onto the. 62, however the one that comes near you. Yeah. Or in the united fans who are right there in front of him behind that goal, or even maybe if he find the right angle, put it out for a throw in, not even a corner, and yet he decides to let the borgo between his leg, not even knowing what's behind him, and guess what Harry, who was behind you, then other cinema. He was planning on doing a Christ turn, perhaps. But you just didn't get around to it. No, Nathan tell us, is it because he goes too quick or what? Tell us what happened. So Harry Maguire is in for lots of criticism at the minute because he's not playing well. People tend to not like his personality style of play all that stuff. But when he's playing well, I think he had this belief that he's got on the ball and all that stuff. So he thinks I believe that he thinks that the way to get out of this situation where people are critical of you is to show people how good you are because to let ball run through your legs. It's like trying to show composure, but he's completely misread the situation. It falls into the trap of what everybody believes is anyway. I'd say 99% of all players in that instance will kick the ball away. But a player that thinks he wants to prove how good he is in. So we're playing the game itself, we'll do something like that because it didn't come at him that hot to the point where he had to leave it. It's a weird decision in such a shame as well because what I say from deja because now we're talking about the fact that he's sent it by sliding the ball rolls through his legs 6 yards out. We've basically every man city player right behind him. It's criminal and I think he needs to get rid of that because he has to go back in my opinion to just being a foundationally like sound defender, all that other stuff doesn't matter because you look around at all the other centers back to doing well at the moment. And nobody cares that they can do Christ turns and stuff. They're just defend well, primarily. And now their reputations are high because of it. I think it's also about reading the moment. When you've got a back four that's been criticized so much that's missing half the starters because let's say this Luke Shaw and Rafael varan were unavailable. And whatever you think of them, that is 50% of the first choice. That's the bike for that cost 175 million pound, by the way. I'm just putting that out there. I'm just putting it. I'm not going to dispute that. But that's why you read the situation. You read the situation and say, this is not the time for smooth defending, bring the ball out. This is a time for not taking chances because we know we're fragile. I know, by the way, we're playing one of the best teams in the world in Manchester City. But there's a problem in leadership in that team. All right, that's second half. You gave up. So let's talk about another guy who I would think is supposed to be a leader on this team. Because we often talk about homegrown players, they get the club. Your fellow mancunian, Marcus Rashford. Now, he didn't start. He came on, I don't think he did much at all when he came on. I'm just wondering to myself, right? Marcus Rashford, we can say he's a forward, right? And he's played center forward. And he scored a lot of goals at center forward. When he came in with van Hale. What does it say when three other center forwards are out? And he's not regarded as a serious option to start the game. By Ralph Frank Nick. Is it because reinig wanted something different to counter pad? Hence the two force 9, the Pogba and Bruno's. I'm sure it is. But why do you want something different from the guy who is? I believe he's one of United's four or 5 highest paid.

All the swiss champions who scored twice in the second half their game winner comes off a jesse lynn guard. Air jordan p faulk. The american provides the winner for young voice. Craig to slip it in. There was a story of the game after all. What a way to kind of squander momentum of the weekend you even even lives in amman our expected to still see united stronger than the where against a team who i think of a five games into this season only have eight points setting and fourths or not not the strongest sade and even up to that point eight minutes or so. When he got sent off wasn't a brilliant performance. Yeah rinaldo surprise. Surprise gone go to target and ninety minutes or we lose amman. Not not very good no.

"Decided to rotate eight. I think it was eight starters. Eleven who didn't stop. She knows probably one of the only ones that remind goethe's way but you had buster at the back did really well. You are a cain Who went to events of course on from everton who scored two goals and was really good movement so power for respiratory the young kerr who michelle likes a lot and gab two who also scored and was involved another one so i guess work. Before we saw the drug and switzerland. They were draw against bulgaria before and changing the way that much and he did broke with a fresher new legs ideas in a way and and also the best team in europe. High been champion. Yeah we still have to give them a bit of pass for now. But let's see when you know when they have a big game in november against switzerland. They'll have the nation's league. Next month began as well against spain in the semifinal. Potentially finally against benjamin and franz off ron soon because that was brilliant in the bedroom francaise where we might be going together. So it's a man who racially abused became your soccer. Marcus rochford and sancho on facebook. After the euro's final you would remember robo after the penalty. Miss against italy received a fourteen weeks. Suspended jail sentence. Yesterday it's tough it tough enough to think well. I think it's about doing again. You know he's gonna do it again. You guys joe. For two weeks that's That's fairly tough. And and i think it's the right sort of punishment because it's terrible what he's done But is in too many environments and other environments. Where for science. Something you could go to. Joe is usually for physical abuse. Or wherever you've done or robbery what may be whatever but this is going out and social media the abuse. The racial abuse is even worse. So i think it's probably just about right. Yeah and it's a deterrent. That's what you want to stop want to educate these. Stop them doing it again. This unless he's absolutely stupid. We stopped doing it again. And we saw anton ferdinand in front of the. Mp's yesterday with with really really strong. and saying what. Why do you want. Now you wanna play to kill himself after being racially amused to do something so i think i think this is the right direction. Yes nasio pierre adams former french international passed away on monday jaws but it's not usually football stories. No it's an incredible story rub. Maybe a lot of our listeners and viewers may not have heard of amy plates in the great teams in france in the eighties. Yet i think safety caps human the defenders. We really strong together sent the box then. He finished his career. Very happy had a really good career. Not the kind of money that we have now but he was happy with his family business after he retired and then when four knee surgery at the hospital really something very simple. They got the wrong and he. He went into coma for thirty nine years and passed on on monday at the age of seventy three after being a coma for thirty nine years. Incredible how the domestic life up in the hospital. His wife was alongside him all all the way through all these years i think there was a there was a point where it could not take anymore. But it's just incredible when you think that you go in for surgery and you never wake up this crazy. She never really a chance to say goodbye. Exactly you'll find. Millions are s chrysler. Robo going from something side to something that i could become side but we haven't heard your opinion about this. New idea also put forward about every two years we heard garrison get not being completely against it. And that's maybe because i think that's organizing a world cup coming up would you send former player. Naza as a pundit. I don't think over saturate international football four years the olympics for the world cup. You look forward to a great builder so i think it's just about right. I think really well. If you start making every two years. I think people will actually lose interest in it more than than gain interest. That's always the way i've always been you know. We saw last season where we had football on every day at the of the of the Every every in other ways. Yeah in the end you shaw coming going slightly inch true bit of interest in it and i think if you over two years that's what happened to the world cup. I agree with you now. We know the decisions taken by the french disciplinary committee against niece and marseille after the incident during their game a few weeks ago and they could be quite surprising. Joe yeah. I think i would tell me what you think. Because as you remember damaged by it goes to a corner the seventy fifth minute he gets pelted with bottles and stones rose a bottle back they will trust. Come onto the page stop motto don't want to restart the game and it's interesting because the discipline committee decided to replay the game but the whole game not just the last fifty area hold game with nil so forget what happened enough as game up to the incidents on neutral grounds behind closed those pirates. I get one suspended much okay. I'll our silos. Who came to help. Eamon really got the crowd going. And you know didn't really have the situation got too much bon straightaway and and also niece got docked. Two points one suspended so one point the minus one point if you will not before even because crowd reaction of the reaction. They will get three games to play behind closed doors. I think this should have been tougher. i i don't think i wanted to sinise for a good few weeks playing with funds back. I think it should have been suspended for throwing the bottle back you. Don't you can't react way. We said as as a pro you have to retain yourself. I his heart so in the ends. Yes there's some decisions taken batting. They could should have been a bit tougher. According is being robbed ozone riposte jesse lynn. God is turning down. A contract extension amnesty united. He's off contract in june robo. You were him would you. Would you be doing the same absolutely. That's good absolutely jesse lingered. You'll still very good footballer. He's still in the england squad. Do you want to sit in manchester. United's under twenty three's and very rarely play. Yes you got your your money coming in if you got any sort of pride in your footballer you've gotta go and move somewhere else. And that's what he's what jesse lynn. God's gotta do. He has improved when he went to west ham last season. He's still can be a very good player and he's making more gone. Signed for somebody else not on an extension lease contract from are you. I still there right now absolutely. I mean i'm not sure what stopped him with mentioned wages..

"I don't think any coach since he's telling me to other kind of an albertsons what it does three some real madrid. He just did what he wanted. He did it very well because you make allowances for players that do that if they scored so many goals and makes a difference and getting the big goals and change game you do basically except that you have to let them do their thing. You're not being told. There's many people played them in the first time you know. It's no way mini game was compromised. Sir gregson baron. Although he rooney basically sacrificed his best year united to make sure they got the best rinaldo ruin events. Is you know yeah and you know ruining my look back and think you know did did i really get the best of my Rooney one playing with renowned up. So it's one of those situations where for the greater good. You sacrifice yourself whether he'd now gives the same return on place themselves. We'll have to wait and see because the seventy five while he is still a remarkable athlete. Time we'll catch them at some point. And maybe it's already started. And i think the one thing that people always get excited in the premise about you know foreign places. Foreign strike is particularly. What great privilege defenders play for a very quick and very good at learning how to deal with these great players. The coaches defended the find a way to deal with these players. You know for ten years away with the no find a white with rinaldo and i think easy to deal with because they will quickly discovered the east quite limited in. What i do is just very well. Yeah i think it would be amazing but again we go back to source care and the pressure is under to find the right formula and the right formation. Whether whether or not those starts to be on the left or to you you know how much i would love. A diamond midfield with munoz's at ten and then ranaldo and someone has a phone. I agree with you too. I don't think that will happen. Who in in the current squad. A united distract goes. So it's really greenwood. Marcial or caveney. Do you think compliments crescendo. The most we rinker play of windward and financing against leeds for example with sensational away when we can rob and then you can run into the space in behind him. I guess that could work caveney. You think he saw unselfish dot would work with any other strikers. Phone with is included. Christiano and marcial just to finish played in a fun too with frans on tuesday. Now with ben zimmer and it really were just because he's movement is good. Okay could you can always do better by the movement is good is quite intelligent guy. He knows where to be. He's awareness. I think tactically is pretty good. So marshall could could be there and could i think head crescendo. As what do you think of those. Three obvious sign was obviously the from three hours. Yes and i think if you played with from three they would be that rotation when renowned wanted to drift out to the left than the other the the players left side maybe rushed in times to come. When he's fully fit could be greenwood then they fill into the center for position. Okay and they chose did brilliantly under antonio conte because antonio conte always wanted to play with the front but he realized with the yugo customer upfront and had has our one study at petra on the other and they almost became a front three that linked up with each other and made the rights that iran's when diego cost longer has came infield and try to combine with it. So i think. That's what i would do and i i would say. Greenwood and sancho would be the ideal combination with route to start with. Okay if if your tactics any plays a be more on the left with forwards. Who do you think woods be the best compliment of him. I think an the the age of the to my. I don't think he's feasible long term. I think because cavani as you say some selfish he's experienced the holds the ball up around. Well i mean this is a throw button and this is public good but long they should do for our audience. But in many ways reminds me of the molecules canton are thing cavani aldo. Kobe is similar. Kind of impact. Because hughes council using tavon very similar similarly games you play with about security can hold the ball on sell used to bring plays in the lao a multi talented team actually say rolling around a little bit. But i don't think social you know complying with the kvant renaldo from partnership. Just you know age means that it won't be alive and the other thing and the other thing that you've just spent a lot of money on censure out so if you play with the front soon the diamond in midfield sancho doesn't get problems social is go to find. A solution is now almost too many players in those areas to. Yeah because you don't want you don't want rinaldo. I mean greenwood started the season so well i mean he's been united's best player really da crisanto arriving. What does that mean for for mason. Greenwood's well i mean long term which would impart what it means. Between is it becomes. Maybe an impact for awhile while at the moment. Obviously rushworth fit sancho. Isn't playing particularly. Well so think remarkable to get marcial. I mean he's obviously what that i think. He's very much number six. But i think we would it be okay for now but i think when they're all fit social big problem that you can see many options. If you have options at times you get confused. And i've since a lot we saw it tends to favour plays which you know you knew that done change. You'll be take no matter what always going to be taken off concern gauge. I think he's going to get to the point where you'll be. Stop picking favorites up front and it will upset some of the place around that. Don't get the chance you saw. Think right now. He's okay because the situation house book montet. Sooner the a few problems with four five six players wanted supply but on the other hands the impact that christian can have on the squad and especially the younger players and we saw with caveney when you arrived last year. And you know the whether it's two effects renowned if he scores goes and plays world and everybody loves him and the crowd Him and socials loving will have a great impact on the rest of the team and the rest of the place if he comes and plays every week doesn't run around doesn't school goes than other plaza. Stop looking at inside. Well we're doing all the hard work which that we don't get in the team and you keep lying him every week. Who's not doing any force. That's the problem. Social is going to have because ease thirty-six and he won't play his best every week and he's not gonna run around chasing after thinks he's not gonna try and running behind is not going to get on the run ron people with it. So they're the problems associated. So that's what i go start with you. What the united line-up at three o'clock on saturday. By the way i know is boring but these saturday blackout for the games at three o'clock means that you won't be able to see in the uk cristianos debuted because the games at three o'clock which is a shame. You can always tune into rmc's paul. My french channel will be our trafford piece cited. Tell you all about cristiano but more seriously ashamed. But that's the way the fixtures list was was doing before they could not change anything to cheer you on the side of the picture on one day after the game. I've got got a big chance. I think it's really popular. Traffics and there's a few shoes by the way like our friend vernon who listen to the show so I'm looking forward to seeing them to augie. Start with you was the united line-up three o'clock on saturday. Well i mean. I think the higher plays obviously the so. Sure you'll have mcguire veron from soccer big issue to address. These is whether fred compl- what is available because brazilian placement. So it's right now available. Yeah well it appeal. I think trying to paint out.

"Hello and welcome to the guy. Ben i'm not i'm not married to j. rush with either i'm jews and this is not jay. This is your son. Gaby's in switzerland on on on the business trip. Let's put it that way shoe. Thank you for coming in the big show about jenner or not though because in two days it will be exactly second debut. He's returned with marco then with us to talk about it and discussed it all will have worked qualifiers. We love women's champions league. Plenty of quick hits as well but really there's only one place to start yup mcdonagh's with us today. We record this on thursday morning. Is the excitement building up in manchester for the return of christiana really is you. I think i think it was kind of unexpected deal when it happened and the got really excited that i think the excitement remainders. There's a bit of a frenzy of people by without those shirts and you know senior rinaldo songs. I think i think it's gonna be. It's gonna be quiet a case on saturday you know. I think he'll play. And i think that the reception be something very different events seen before when he came out with real madrid thirteen in the united by the big thing about the so-called magnificent seven. I think realized that one starts away. Have to deliver on the pitch. And you know that's the main thing is. It's not what the reception is. And i think he's all over and out on the page. We save a riding in his lamborghini. Any we saw him talking with oscar as well. I'm not sure really where they were. Maybe they had a coffee before you. Are you excited. And and what do you make of him coming to them. I'm not quite so excited. Because i've seen renowned play for the last two or three events different so i know exactly what he can bring what he can't bring. I'm looking forward to seeing in play for months united. I'm looking forward to seeing where they gonna play. And i'm looking forward to seeing how the other plaza just around him. I'm looking forward to same whether he's going to be an. I'll use this word carefully. Selfish selfish player was events or where he's going to be more of a team player manchester united. They're the key questions that everyone is going to be asking. And i would say a lot of manchester united fans haven't watched fee eventers so they don't exactly know what he's going to bring to the team. What was he been doing the last few days. We know that he came back. And you and portugal when he broke that incredible record of the most goals courts in men's international football and then he came by. Who's going to be suspended anywhere. And then they had a police friendly against qatar was. You've been doing in the last few days. And how do you think he's approaching that game on saturday in the sense that it was suspended for the other by john game which meant the mystic guitar game. So you're right the manchester less friday. So he had to do five that quarantine pistons before he could train. he was released. When crunchy on tuesday. So from tuesday. Wednesday thursday friday full session for aldo. Which means he'll play the fact that school to and he's lasting for portugal last week so he's he's planning is a case said well he fits in and i agree with you. That one thing that surprised me. Let's do it in a scientific. Portugal against them was how what has changed. And how i do i do. I do slightly united and and think we're who is gonna be. We're now two thousand and nine now renaldo. Twenty-third seen the guy that's all. These madrid is a very different. I think you have to kind of accent. In addition to the guy that will be basically play up front. Won't help out. Defensively won't really do much for the team and he could actually have a negative impact with the club of fernandez. Marcus rush the positive. Deductible outweigh the negatives. But i don't think it's a wholly positive opthamologist. Pretty wild yes the excitement. He's down the whole squad excited to be with him. I think it could be quite difficult plant to accommodate the team. Because he's limitations now. Yeah we would come back on that bit later for. I wonder it's better for him to. I suspect that he would be. I presented to the bill. Von was In that game against leeds. I think it was and and then just him again in the dressing room and get ready whether he starts always serban and gone goes on the bench and i wonder if he's better for him to almost come on a sub just just for the incredible atmosphere. Can you much when you're going to stop me up. And then when he's gonna start getting ready and then you have the fourth referee with their born number seven replacing whoever it is and then coming on that will have such a big impact. Maybe more than if he starts and is among the eleven and walked on the pitch she think renowned happy coming on as a substitute at least he would come on zone yet true otherwise. He's one of twenty two really that work onto the play. He's he's white and go. Who wants to play from the style. He had one on negative impact. Right from the site. Wanna come on with twenty minutes to go and make the plan particularly well and he's gonna try and soda out and he can't do. I think he's going start the guy if he's fit said he's fit and he's been training hard. He has to start the game. You you think he wouldn't stop even if he's just trained or four days and two of those days with even three when the squad was on a half full because all the other players on international judy yeah played poker. You'll having barely been there. So he'll play you know this. This isn't the renaldo show. It feels like he's thrown out show but he's one of the twenty two players he he should be in the book and he should be. It shouldn't be a case where we've all come to all the stalwart rinaldo. It's about winning points. And getting the result and newcastle of f. I don't think monday nights you'll need to bring rinaldo. We need to go problem. So i think it should be make as normal as fossil. Yes celebrate these but make normal as possible because the signing to score goals to we haven't to be. I remember the last time when he was fit. He was a substitute. I mean typically. I wasn't against bolton not any came on and gaby's that will show you step. Hose and connect connect sightsee put i'd be. I'd be amazed if in the last ten years with real madrid events. He's epstein somebody's foot. Yeah that's a good. I mean i'll be honest with you. I'm going to the game for french. Tv and i'm going there just for christina. Could not care less about the school. The who scores the goals who stars. Who doesn't start. I just want to secret santa. that's all. That's what i'm interested in boys. Let's let's talk a bit about tactics then to less. Have your opinion on where if you sold scheme and your your far more handsome and so that where what would you do with. We've got gap. Has this theory has to play in a frontal. That's where he played eighty percent although augie so in with portugal on his own up front still do of course but gabon. This idea to get the best. After channel you have to play to play with the murata with the battle gre- to certain degree. I would say i can understand why gap senate. But he's not somebody that combines with other players even when he had egwu implant up front with him he was always looking for an hour. Run out look for igwe kabbalah and never played one-twos with each other. It's not like when you see into laos season and likud martinez play with each other was renowned. I just want to join him with anybody else. He wants to be the individual. And i know he doesn't agree with me but i would play as the center forward and i'll play with two y plays tucking infield from you know whether it be sent show a and greenwood marciel and sent show ever..

Cristiano renaldo continues to be wrapped up in a legal battle over sexual assault allegations on the part of a woman here in the us. Have there been any concerns about his arrival in manchester coming with a bit of a dark cloud is that something. That's been part of the conversation around his return to menu. The some people has been part of the conversation. I mean we've got a lot of comments on emails from subscribers alaskan wa approach civil as so we've written a piece that is not that explains the current situation and as you say the allegations that have been made which he denies they oversee all very serious allegations. It doesn't seem to affect his time. Events is oversee these allegations came out publicly whilst he was interior and he was able to navigate through them. You know he spoke about them. The club spoke about them. But as something that is you know. I think we will also be attuned to expose. We'll have to wait and see what happens in. The civil colts have in america. Well turning back to on the field stuff you know. It's hard to imagine any team with cristiano. Ronaldo in the lineup would not be built around him and his unique skill set but he's also thirty six years old so laurie. What clues do we have at this time about. What exactly his role will be within the united team and how much. The team will adapt their style of play to him. Social gave us a good clue after the game against wolves. Pajamas is evolved. As a player he used to play wide right. wide left. Front is more of a center forward for me at the moment. yeah definitely. I want him in the box. I want him scoring goals. So he sees him as a centre forward no songs about inbetween down the wing and plan on the left and on the right. They probably need updating. Maybe there's a new sun could be so wait till expel him just going now. Well i think he's movement is something in. The box. Is something that you can really utilize because social has been crying out full stryker. He says willing to break his nose score a goal when aldo clearly likes the way he looks. I don't think it'd be breaking. These knows necessarily but he has a really great physique about the way the johnson schools powerful head is something that the united haven't really hard for. While i think united w- english will enjoy having the guy in the box where they can pick him out if they cross he will make his mission together on the end of it. I do think it leaves. So shaw with a dilemma over. Who to pick you know you think of that as well. You've got him on. Shell got marcus rush. You got a lot of players that will want to play regularly. It's up to so shot. Skeet them all happy. Soul shaw said is no salmon aldo to sit on the bench show. I would imagine that. He is dying sensible. Would you know pretty much every week. And lastly laurie man. United have been off to a rather promising start even before. Cristiano ronaldo's arrival. So what do you think his presence. Now make menu premier league favorites favors because they haven't won the title since left twenty th day so there's a long time the on phil jones who have not got city players regulate you've got liverpool plays even plays less recently much nazi play so i think not something to be said.

"Viva ronaldo's famous. They've always said the atmosphere among founder certainly jubilant and coin back two months to piccadilly where this big billboard was singing the songs going through that as well at eleven o'clock at night so certainly the excitement sustain throughout the day you gotta love billboard wars nothing quite like him well we wanted to understand exactly how this big move four. Cristiano ronaldo came about. So let's start here. How have the last three years at you. Ventas ben for him overall. I think when you look at the numbers the been pretty remarkable. Amerasian for cristiano. Ronaldo this is that he has caught the fastest player to score one hundred goals fever ncis. He was the top scorer in the league. Low season. outstripping maluku who's chelsea by robbie over christiano renaldo against my lawn this so i think you kind of look those numbers really really strong uncertainly surpassing anything that much tonight have managed to do in recent years on the flip side of this. He hasn't won the champions league. Which is what you went to do from the spot kick. That's the pinnacle ambitions number times around madrid on shots wellness but with unc. Never got close actually slips away as the years went by truck about you. Then show weariness about you've anticipated event. It's the because this is they come here and say that that is the main reason that rinaldo was looking to leave her in to have a better shot at winning. Another champions league title think is the ambition to do something else to win again in a different place. you know. You won't sarah with events as as i say. Champions league eluded him and people might look at it and go much denied. Haven't threatened the champions league for a long long time. I think with them. Those emotional pull of coming home so to speak. And there's also this idea of supposed that renaldo is such a huge orbit that everybody defers to him. So you know you've entertaining. They look to that unfold because he really bringing the best out the full team he might be going. Goals personally is not having a good effect for everybody else. I suppose it's never quite fell a settled environment for renaldo. So there's always been this suspicion that he might move on and it was a famous so click imploding cars ensue. Van ready to be transported out. Cheering the start. The summer and everyone still is the starting going for an elderly in that being the case. Well around that time laurie. When it was first reported that rinaldo could be looking to move. My sense was that there was talk about the possibility of him returning to manchester united but united didn't really seem to be pursuing him that much. So based on the reporting that you've done is that true and if so why were they not going all in. Yeah it's really interesting. Want to try to untangle going to sell shaw the manchester united manager. Who was a former player and he also played with renaldo when he first joined the club. Back in two thousand and three four has been legend of this global village of this globe is the greatest player of all time. If you ask me. I was fortunate enough to play with him. He knows his skills on the pit bull so the way he carries himself off the page dedication to his craft so social recognize evening now there will be an asset nights if he knows what we feel about on the if he was ever gonna move away from eventers he he knows. We're both the club. I think slight difference reputation in terms of. I don't think they truly believed that he would leave venice. I think they've had the situation before with other players. Such remorse for example madrid about like an ever annual event that he would supposedly leave real madrid. And comes muncie. Tonight's at each time. It seemed that signing contract so i think you're not guarded against being drawn into a situation where they were used as leverage for a new deal or for another comment and game better terms so can understand united caution but maybe they could have been a bit stronger in saints when we want to bring you to. Old trafford. seems like the decisive moment in this whole saga really happened. When it looked like christiana was maybe going to do the unthinkable at least two man united fans and sign with their crosstown rivals. Man city janette. Who says why haven't the glazes gone in for renaldo. Bring him back to the red the red side and actually says you can't be serious. You think is going to sign for manchester city well. Gee what's your understanding of. How close that came to actually happening. I think it was close. I mean i think if you hadn't stepped in. I think it would have happened. You know there's some idea that when all does agent. George does. Did he deliberately bring money to the table to trigger them onto shiite into action. That could be some logic to that balloon again. Mendez has really good relations with muncie to be a very strong toxic to kind of go against that called now. I think genuinely they were going to do the deal. Gladiolas spoke to renaldo in my personal view. There are few few players in. I think percents included one day. Decide where they're going to play so they had a good conversation when there was infused by the prospect of going to a club where they could you know wants to see win the champions league last season so really fix more rain with what he's ambitions were when he was leaving event to go and win the champions league again. They're overseas primarily champions and one. That's three times full. Yeah so you know if you're gonna go to anywhere to win silverware muncie would probably be. The destination will or you've written about how manchester united went about pursuing cristiano renaldo. So take us inside operation. Don't let christiana sign with man city or whatever we should call it here. How exactly did the red devils court him and get a signature. Yeah operation hijack maybe when it was emerging that sixty was a real destination. You're not went into action. All they're going to sell a call would-wouldn't the executive vice chairman on. I'm told it was a very quick coal at would would understood. The situation delicately went to work on trying to deal with events agnelli the owner of he's Relationship with at the same time would would also spoke to joe. Glaser the of shiite. sit on. he wants to know exactly what benefit unite would get from signing game. How much it costs white made sense from a financial point of view at the second time. You've got all the football guys. The ex players going to work rio ferdinand who is quite well versed in the arts of agency. so rearview. what's been going on with phone calls was. What's that was at text messages. All of the above. I mean talking into texas overseas a big part of it you could never see the united. Never seen ascribe lou kit malkani manchester trafford in a red shirt. It just couldn't happen. So he was speaking crystalline. Alabama's light is one in the morning. To kind of compel to joy much united gary neville this style always worth. You've football eight sometimes neo kick sometimes when you when you expect it. But this is your. The idea of in van city was torture for months. United funds patrice. Everett's another one. Who had a really good relationship rinaldo when they were both players trafford. He was sending whatsapp messages to him. You've got bruno fernandez. Who is national teammate. Each place in a cold and even tweets it the next day saying you know agent bruno i'd say again so you could sense the kind of avalanche perfection. I suppose from all different parts of ultra fits try and get when all the to change his mind and what about manchester united's legendary former manager. Sir alex ferguson. I've read that. He was also an integral part of the recruiting effort. What we know about the role that ceramics played in getting rinaldo to sign with menu. The focus and strong is really enjoyable.

Yes i think so at the moment at agree but for one bassac of veron mcguire shore pretty much picks itself if in in the system as my whole vicks i think he's more athletic movies apple. I'm probably going. I the side of him. Bruno pumper if i'm going so of the two to ahead of one two. I'm probably put in public next termini and pull in bruno in ten position. Who takes you want physicians. Who tend she central position you. I'm the same page review. The stein i now comes the difficult. Bet i think in the moment you have to go run. Although through the middle i think. Yeah i think you have to go with that. And then i think dependent and this is what i said. When they signed sancho sancho gives real good options. Because if you play on the right is going to be out on our weight up because he keeps more of his west and we know the one. Bassac has ause attack-minded ashore. So he'll have the width among the second comeback year. If he plays on the left inside we know that he's going to drift inside not lease space for sure. So i think probably at the moment you probably going to be looking at some show central ingredient. I would say the minute is a to wide class. Yeah i think sounds rally trafford's fit yeah roughing not make the drafted commended state route. Maybe the green look. I think i think it's it all depends if the foam the plays rim because he questions that you get ashwell effects wines had gone. Siamese player will well. You're gonna fit in well whichever way. Wanna look at it now. It is a swap game. What he gives now. Whoever is not going to be playing. What united has now which they haven't had a number of years have game changes on the bench for a long time. You could probably sit down together two days before united game and we could name the stein. Eleven and the thing the beauty of this now or the four. As you quite rightly said pixies self you on the back fold certificates out But then going forward you not element of surprise and if you see son show green modal rochford on the team sheet. First of all is like while they're going to create a problem or i will sign they're gonna plant the not gonna stay on the side of the plan the drift around the owner of ability. And i remember when social i felt the job on a such a what what is your ideal and one of the things was that he wanted time. He wanted it to be able to play the full. Three three dynamic pace send defense insurance hike really quickly while tell you all is not far away from mountain. Not far away from that. It's all the attack intended as is disposal just to die with the best of them and with that comes pressure bull. If you're going to play for cool by munch's united but only if you gotta be good player but you've gotta be able to handle it mentally because you're expected to win all the time absolutely not desk depp's going to be important especially when i think that would look in champions league games. You might have trend me league fully line and a jump news lunch. Vanni could be really important community in those games. Obviously rafic greenwood moss. Reality still the picture you see him. Possibly being the oldman out mall she allen and maybe done jennings now want they let those two. maybe minimum. Yeah i could. I could say someone like don james potentially go only on loan. 'cause obviously he's he's is relatively young themselves You know you don't okay at certain times. But he's still developing. Marshall is he must frustrate the life out of the management team in the coach and stuff because he has many southampton last week. Kinda some be more just like everything you want. Is you say everything. Done speed pace technique can finish can be aggressive and just looks disinterested to me looks lying convert to be bothered today and they call win. Titles without that's not mine. Just united all be bothered you. You don't know what you're gonna get your hope and your fingers crossed each one of those days and some days he is in and he's a brilliant footballer not day july scratching going really and the difference between good in the great is consistency. You know that they'll be certain times where you play against these munches united states and then not not in the best of days but then there was always was always play that you belie whether dot com from not wins in the game and i think the united same now it has it has a number of matchwinners and when you look at i think this is going to be the most exciting title race for for a long time because i think probably for the first time in a long time we'll probably talking about full teams can challenge teams. Who can win. Yeah yeah. I think i think full went out think manages. You're gonna have a big parts of laughing. There's been some incredible transfers. Don't as well and yeah just failed this. It's not going to be three teams that run away with it. I think you get three calls into the season is still going to be full teams. Allied thing so you know what we can. We can do this. We can win and he's just gonna make such an exciting season. What she go tell you about. Women's united can finish willfully kenley winner title. Yes yeah they aren't they. Can't they come in title. I can will is a little bit of a different thing. The one thing that stops united. And i think we we saw it last season sentence as well is the consistency now. It's it's sometimes the games that you expect them to potentially draw role lose. They win the games. You expect them to win. Then the lose it you look at crystal palace last season. I think the which westbrook no sheffield united yet against the big boys went and china didn't up against some of the level teams and and that's the thing is when they're playing against the bigger clubs. It works perfectly for them because it can plan the counter that's how they don't dominate possession. It's when may have to dominate possession. Where they can have a little bit of a problem. You look at the game against leeds. United opening game of the season auto performance. Legion up more legion. I'd had more possession. And that's what united dude got. Turn dominance in sims a possession into goals and if they can do that a consistent basis then they'll be challenging for me at the moment chelsea chelsea my favorites. Then then you know it's it's it's a mixture of the three of them because they've all got goodbye indifferent between the three teams below them yet games against. You're the could have a big fat. Somebody loves the big cristiano. Ronaldo moving too much not just a couple of buds the two points at sportsbook our partners who gives us odds ingesting the golden boot talk scoring lulu Is still i. At plus two seventy gas used young tenant second. Cristiano ronaldo close plus. A hundred is now second favorite to win the golden. So the bookies saying he'll he'll play get enough games and you get enough goals so often trusting these little ready going south in certain spot in terms of the child rice bunches united still fall favorite and they started the day. Plus a hundred. But they'd gone down now to plus five fifty so visit share of people saw anything. They've is reloadable valuate in months. Nine plus five fifty is that maybe they could let lift the title as well so whether donaldo plays enough games where he plays a big enough. Paul i think is a season done again. I'll get you also of closing death. I think the season where minogue for for the weekend of two things have got a ham for months this progress in silverware. I think he needs the to. I mean if the enough progress without the welby okay we can see where you're gonna bit clot light when he came at liverpool and we go again the next year but i think if we don't if they don't line the bitter silverware not might be domestic cook. Yeah just need something for this group and only gonna sell show to prove they've won and start the home that's going to grow to tiles to jumping back to champions league. What unite have always known in always buy full in the past. Yeah i agree. I think if you look last season they came second months distance when i was gonna say it's it's second by distance. So they have to that gap. I think one of the things. I look is mentioned. I had all. They abet seem than last season yet. Without doubt chelsea zero so bad team in las season live a- polar bazzi and then last season manchester sit a undecided whether about him unless there's another project creation and i think he's going to be i think he's going to be a stop for them and i think he's..

"Seven is one of those days some stunning news at developing story of the last twenty. Four forty eight hours. Cristiano ronaldo returns to muscle manchester united twelve years. After he last will be to traits. I'm joined on the podcast. Cast by most easy way we can get like say saving joined by contributes to show johnny higginbotham who started his career at manchester. United knows cristiana aldo. Seen him up close and personal played against him seven times and can tell us something about his development and just what stunning events. We've had over the last twenty four hours. John kennedy quite believed when we. Oh this no economy. It's it's incredible. It's my brother's birthday today. So we'll be made. The renaldo is going to the united only stable. It looks as it was going about some interest in the blue side. Not not the red side. Then it's children. How quickly it happened. I was following all and everything that was being said. All of a sudden you know you had only going to solve your hair. His press conference is very different than pep gladiolas. And all of a sudden matai. Just start to change and you know. Then then you have some reliable people coming out and saying he's going to be joining munshi. I it in then before you know it. It's it it's on that meteor count is joined in. It's it's an incredible sign. And i think you look is ability on the pitch and you know he's. He's quite rightly mentioned. In one of the greatest ever players ever to play the game people talk of him being the six but he's just the ways the ways taking care of himself. The goal speak for himself the ability that he still has you know he's probably really still appoint where he's twenty nine thirty and i think the effect is going on the younger players as well of kabbalah cuts from alive renaldo to be playing the level of he's playing at the age as he lives and breathes football. And he's going to bring that. Into the dress room mancha she unite which is already very professional room. He's just gonna take elevate the open of a level as well and i think it's i think it's a great sign and not just on the pitch for affairs. Well yeah complain you may think you know in the day. Mine just unite. You've always had vision iconic figure they've always been into the biggest players in the world wherever they are encountering all springs to mind and then the bathrooms in the gay zuma skulls The bryan robson's biblis have those stall quality so it cutting to manchester united ownership that. They've actually got there still in that because you shiny. Not just for what he brings to the team. But i think to the football club. Donnie. it takes to another level munchies. You not too big east football brand out there. And hopping cristiano. Ronaldo just takes you to another level. Just just keeps you on people's lips just keep you in people's mind and acting hugely important mines united regardless what's happening on the pitch i've always said it's impacted premier league when these a better manchester united one hundred percent on one of the things that we've seen over recent seasons has been the with heard a lot of talk about place potentially going to mention i it and then he just falling flattened not happening and i think if you look at the business that they've done a season you know you look look at sancho look renaldo. They've gone out and got the job done. And i think one of the frustrations the united suppose over recent seasons is the true certain extent. They've been have been left behind with some of the signs of the talk globes. There's been no real method behind. The sign is that they've made whereas if we look at signs that they have made recently. You won't be slate. Take renaldo equation. But he's a special player. Majority of the plays younger play is not quite out the peak year. And there's the soul of an identity to the team going forward on. Just think when you sign some light rinaldo. I think the effect that he can have on the likes of rush. The likes of green with the likes of sun show. I think he's i think he's going to be huge effect. The fact that he still has the ability he's not coming just for a payday is a play. The wants to still win things. You can see hongbo. Even when he was playing seasons the eventless in always demanding of his teammates. And i think hold top clubs. Have that rub you. Played against the top munches unites aims. An an i did as wellness out and the demands that each of those players put some nights. Teammates is what drives them on. And i think it was someone i rinaldo. He's going to demand that from his teammates and dot can only be a good thing. Because then you're gonna have plays the are going to be dragged along with him which is going to be brilliant. You're gonna have buys are going to be left by the wayside because they haven't got that thought mentality guests to be in a primarily fights when the tile thanks a really good point nine two. He's supporting made out of most deny hunt. This discussion maybe a week or two ago. I think previewing the season and he's been quite harsh. Finally saying i'm not sure all these money can push. This is team over the line. The great money is the cops packs. You know get get the job done to co we've seen chelsea and they pushed the date ray dragon team. Oh the blind to get one. And i said to him. I take what he's saying. I think we've got to wait and ali team. That is good enough to be pushed over line. And we're starting to get their non. I'll get your view on that in a minute but more than that. The playing time asia. I'm was an. You've just hit me. The great manchester united teams were nasty against each other now just nasty. The opposition obscene arguments going on with plays months. Not you well. The plays almost in tears because they weren't doing the job they pushed each other along. And you should really interesting point you make any because i think the biggest thing. Cristiano renaldo brings. The goals will be important. But i don't necessarily think lack of goals will start getting what they want..

But i'll actually answer it. I can't believe it bec-. Because i i don't know i just kinda thought especially in this window after sancho and veron with what united have with what we have been led to believe you know their their financial situation is not. They're not man city. They're not psg so they've got a lot of money they do but like they don't have infinite money no dare in that. They're in that elite spot but they're not in the infinite money spot which is occupied by chelsea manchester city. And but it's amazing to me We spoke just a few days ago. About the limited amount of places that were possibly available for cristiano ronaldo but somehow it united can make this work and it goes to show you that it really is in your pin football right now a battle between a few clubs.

You've of course losing something like three hundred more than three hundred million over two years. They wanna get a feedback and city thus far is taping. This have yet to make a bid. You expect a bid on friday from manchester city and that is they expect to be right around thirty million euros and if that happens think he's john. Ronaldo will be free to go.

"Fire at freeflyer is actually one of my favorite games to focus out of the Esports gaming world right now due to its massive success primarily in Brazil, which also makes it a natural choice for football partnership home considering Brazil's love of football going back decades and this partnership centered around operation quota, which debuted in December and allowed players of free fire to play em as Cristiano Ronaldo the which is pretty cool deal Matt. How did that deal come about? What was the process like to bring one of the biggest names in the world? It's Sports in other entertainment and so like Liberty into a mobile Battle Royale greater freefire. Yeah, it was it was a really exciting project to work with the guys on Thursday from the whole kind of ideation and blueprint of the idea through to the the integration and Page the final execution both in terms of the in-game integration and and the marketing around the partnership I think life to start at the beginning. I set up sport Quake fifteen years ago, and I had a background in media and Thursdays soccer or football a depending on what we're calling it today, and I'd worked at a number of large advertising agencies and then moved into sport media page. With Sky Sports is the Premier League host broadcaster and then spent four years as commercial director at Tottenham Hotspur, which is one of the big three London football franchises wage. And when I set up sport quake in that time over the. I view is very much that we're in a world where they, you know Sports Media Tech and gaming increasingly are coming more and more together and we're seeing lots of really really interesting collaborations as a result of that and primarily right. It's about bringing these two different audiences together to create more impact and awareness. And so as you and and your listeners, no doubt will be aware or if not, you know free fire, which is owned. No, Karina which is part of the C group. We've worked with the c group to some time and we've worked with an e-commerce business they have which is very strong in Southeast Asia that offers a service similar to Amazon in those markets and see is actually the best performing Chef globally over the last twelve months. I think it's kind of five EXT over the last twelve months and is within that organization as the e-commerce business Sharpie. It has to read free flight and we're done some work with with Sharpie with Ronaldo in the fall of 2018 and it performed extraordinarily well and through that and then relationships with out throughout the group the guys that Greener thoughts. It could be something here to do something with him as well. But with their own sort of twist and that was really where the kind of Genesis of the idea came from to bring his audience and IP together with With Their audience and they obviously are the the number one game. If not, the number one guy one of the the very top games in the world. I mean, I think they have something like two hundred and fifty million downloads and a hundred million daily sneezes and and Ronaldo himself in terms of his social media following putting aside what he delivers through the TV platform around baseball games. He his social media follow me is is the biggest in the world or anyone right? So he's got over for bigger than the cardassians bigger than J Lo and a dog Oh force and he's got something like four hundred and fifty million plus followers. And so the idea was to bring these two giants together in Partnership. Absolutely. I pulled up the list of the most played mobile games by player count and you said four hundred fifty billion. That's exactly what grade at last reported. According wage is article it August 2019, but they were one of the most downloaded mobile games in the world in 2019 to your point and have driven just a pretty insane bout of viewership at my favorite example of just sort of how big Great a free-fire is is the Esports organization loud gave a down in Brazil. They launched in I think mid June 2018 and have crossed their one point seven billion views on their YouTube channel for comparison the FaZe Clan account, which has been running for ten years now and has numerous viral videos is that just over what billion views so two years loud gaming which focuses almost entirely a great a free fire has completely surpassed FaZe Clan's called Dead output. Yeah, really quickly that just kind of gives you an idea of hey, this is how popular this game is. And and I think really where their their their view was listen, and as the market leader, we really want to lead and and and set the agenda and you know clearly we have as you just said large choice, you know of of of of gamers in terms of you know, everything from Hardcore to get real Gamers, but there's something really exciting here that we think we could do to Delight. Both are are cool gaming fans while also bringing in even more mainstream players to the game and also just kind of Setting the agenda for the industry in terms of you know, this is how you do these collaborations. Absolutely, that's really crucial to and let's talk a little bit about that collaboration. We you mentioned how everything is coming together and free fire it off is actually representation of just how far Tech has advanced recently. What do you think about what mobile games were even four or five years ago to the point that there now seems reals which is the most server intensive Gabe that you could a badge it with 100.

SportQuake CEO on Launching EsportQuake, Getting Cristiano Ronaldo into Garena Free Fire

"Fire at freeflyer is actually one of my favorite games to focus out of the Esports gaming world right now due to its massive success primarily in Brazil, which also makes it a natural choice for football partnership home considering Brazil's love of football going back decades and this partnership centered around operation quota, which debuted in December and allowed players of free fire to play em as Cristiano Ronaldo the which is pretty cool deal Matt. How did that deal come about? What was the process like to bring one of the biggest names in the world? It's Sports in other entertainment and so like Liberty into a mobile Battle Royale greater freefire. Yeah, it was it was a really exciting project to work with the guys on Thursday from the whole kind of ideation and blueprint of the idea through to the the integration and Page the final execution both in terms of the in-game integration and and the marketing around the partnership I think life to start at the beginning. I set up sport Quake fifteen years ago, and I had a background in media and Thursdays soccer or football a depending on what we're calling it today, and I'd worked at a number of large advertising agencies and then moved into sport media page. With Sky Sports is the Premier League host broadcaster and then spent four years as commercial director at Tottenham Hotspur, which is one of the big three London football franchises wage. And when I set up sport quake in that time over the. I view is very much that we're in a world where they, you know Sports Media Tech and gaming increasingly are coming more and more together and we're seeing lots of really really interesting collaborations as a result of that and primarily right. It's about bringing these two different audiences together to create more impact and awareness. And so as you and and your listeners, no doubt will be aware or if not, you know free fire, which is owned. No, Karina which is part of the C group. We've worked with the c group to some time and we've worked with an e-commerce business they have which is very strong in Southeast Asia that offers a service similar to Amazon in those markets and see is actually the best performing Chef globally over the last twelve months. I think it's kind of five EXT over the last twelve months and is within that organization as the e-commerce business Sharpie. It has to read free flight and we're done some work with with Sharpie with Ronaldo in the fall of 2018 and it performed extraordinarily well and through that and then relationships with out throughout the group the guys that Greener thoughts. It could be something here to do something with him as well. But with their own sort of twist and that was really where the kind of Genesis of the idea came from to bring his audience and IP together with With Their audience and they obviously are the the number one game. If not, the number one guy one of the the very top games in the world. I mean, I think they have something like two hundred and fifty million downloads and a hundred million daily sneezes and and Ronaldo himself in terms of his social media following putting aside what he delivers through the TV platform around baseball games. He his social media follow me is is the biggest in the world or anyone right? So he's got over for bigger than the cardassians bigger than J Lo and a dog Oh force and he's got something like four hundred and fifty million plus followers. And so the idea was to bring these two giants together in Partnership. Absolutely. I pulled up the list of the most played mobile games by player count and you said four hundred fifty billion. That's exactly what grade at last reported. According wage is article it August 2019, but they were one of the most downloaded mobile games in the world in 2019 to your point and have driven just a pretty insane bout of viewership at my favorite example of just sort of how big Great a free-fire is is the Esports organization loud gave a down in Brazil. They launched in I think mid June 2018 and have crossed their one point seven billion views on their YouTube channel for comparison the FaZe Clan account, which has been running for ten years now and has numerous viral videos is that just over what billion views so two years loud gaming which focuses almost entirely a great a free fire has completely surpassed FaZe Clan's called Dead output. Yeah, really quickly that just kind of gives you an idea of hey, this is how popular this game is. And and I think really where their their their view was listen, and as the market leader, we really want to lead and and and set the agenda and you know clearly we have as you just said large choice, you know of of of of gamers in terms of you know, everything from Hardcore to get real Gamers, but there's something really exciting here that we think we could do to Delight. Both are are cool gaming fans while also bringing in even more mainstream players to the game and also just kind of Setting the agenda for the industry in terms of you know, this is how you do these collaborations. Absolutely, that's really crucial to and let's talk a little bit about that collaboration. We you mentioned how everything is coming together and free fire it off is actually representation of just how far Tech has advanced recently. What do you think about what mobile games were even four or five years ago to the point that there now seems reals which is the most server intensive Gabe that you could a badge it with 100. I'm not sure how many people actually drop into free-fire but you know, the typical number is 100 people dropping in at the same time as to do that auto mobile photo, but will technology and something that old he became possible in the last few years. And now you also see at the same time the ability to bring Cristiano Ronaldo into the game and that's something that you know, we've seen with games like FIFA in the past where they model people they model real athletes in those situations, but there's something different to bring home.
