"Euro twenty twenty and event that had been delayed due to covid the olympics are also right on the horizon also thrown into flex by the coronavirus pandemic. But you have this documentary feature that. You've been preparing for east sixty. That feels like it sits at the center of this entire messy ven diagram. It is about sports it is about science it is about the pandemic and the olympics and one particular family. First of all pablo is a gift of a story. It's a reporter's dream julie. Foudy is an olympic and world cup champion with the us women's national team and now she's a soccer commentator and reporter for espn. You have a mom who is a scientist who has toiled for decades on something that she believes deeply in. And this technology that led to the pfizer and madonna vaccine. That's the scientific community. Took so long to understand. You have a daughter who's an athlete who doesn't realize her full potential until later in life and their combined journey and a willingness to grind it out in the best of ways and just figure it out along the way has literally changed the world and saved millions of lives perseverance. That's pretty much my my life. My family's life in a nutshell and you spend time talking to these two women about their stories that are so entwined julie there. Susan francia the of the family in this world class rower defined odds and trying to keep forging ahead even when all sorts of challenges or being thrown your way. So you know what that's like in sports. My mama's lived at in science lot of ups and downs than you really appreciate those those ups and her mother dr kate. Correo a biochemist to has been toiling in labs for decades and a discovery of hers led directly to the corona virus vaccine. It was always what we started. We wanted to finish with. I see everything is potential to do the work and what it could mean for others So i know. The story will culminate in the pfizer vaccine. The moderna no vaccine as well. These are things that we can draw a straight line from dr correo but the beginning of the story. Where would you start that. The story actually starts in communist hungary where she was born in and it starts in in nine in the eighties really because she gets her. Phd dr creko gets her phd eighty to her daughter. Susan was born that same year. I used without her story. That i shook her hands in that introduced myself and said hello. Suzanne i am your mother. I never talked to her. Like a child you know that always like another person and and she learned some complicated words early on because i was talking about bras miniature inactivate. She gets fired from her research job shortly after that and the funding is pulled for her to do her work and she's out of options so she comes to america so to get to america. I know this is cold. Wartimes julie. I imagine it's not just a matter of buying a ticket and easily starting a new life in a whole different place. no it wasn't like that. So in communist hungary at the time they really wanted to deter people from leaving the country and so they were only allowed to travel. If you were going gonna leave the country with fifty dollars on them so and this is the first part of the amazing story. Is they decide that they're going to sell their car on the black market and they get about twelve hundred dollars for this and so they so it into susan their daughter who's two and a half at the time her teddy bear literally they talk about performing this operation on the back of teddy bear because they said look. No one's going to look at susan and susan is now the smuggler exactly with the cute little teddy bear. So my parents laugh that i was like. Oh she's the smuggler. she's the criminal. It's definitely brings up some emotions for me because it really just shows where we came from and the risk. My parents were willing to take to make for a better life. So you have a family. You have a phd in biochemistry. You have her husband bella. You have their daughters susan and when they get there of course there isn't a ton of career prospects in the one thousand nine hundred eighty s. There's not a lot of money for them. Was something that was crushing today. Notice how hard all of this was. Dr krikah's background and hungary is and she says it very matter of fact wonderful upbringing hungry but we didn't have running water. We didn't have electricity. My dad was a butcher and it was a very happy and very simple upbringing. And so when she gets to america and they're struggling to to make it work with a young daughter and susan. It was like this is what we do and then my husband he had to do. Odd jobs could grass and clean windows. What whatever job was available. And i went to the university to work. What a dan do so he started working up the apartment complex that we moved to and he's still works at that same apartment complex thirty years. So dr kerry go eventually winds up at the university of pennsylvania. Julie and that's where she really starts to focus on her theories about messenger n. a. m. How'd you describe how that went early on will just a little background and i'm not a scientist. So you're going to get the laymen's version of this on mr rene. Essentially what she felt is it could be used to tell cells to do anything. So for example for the covid vaccine if you inject marinade into your body your cell start producing this spike protein. That the real virus uses to infect you and your body detects this new protein in it recognizes it as a foreign threaten. It starts producing antibodies to fight it the problem though being that when they were first testing this synthetic mr in a it produced a dangerous inflammatory response in animals. And that was really the hiccup so her path at penn. I know wasn't smooth. Julie how'd you describe the setbacks that she was facing so much of a labs existence at universities of course depends on grant. Money and dr kriegel was having.

"Maybe the the copa america. Hopefully that doesn't happen. You know it player safety and fancy obviously Is paramount 'cause you can't have the game without the players fans can stay at home and watch but you know most of these clubs and nations want to be able to have fans in the stands which i totally get. It's crazy. i was watching Some american football this past weekend. And i don't remember who was playing but the kansas city chiefs were playing. Actually they're playing the cleveland browns. Which is hilarious. Even think about but In you know from a certain angle. It looked like the stadium was like you know like seventy five percent capacity. But i'm pretty sure it was much lower than that was probably like maybe right around twenty five percent to maybe thirty but then you look at other other matches or the games in you know. There's no fans in the stands so you know the us big depends on the individual state and in some cases individual city los angeles has completely shut everything down. well obviously kansas city missouri. You know they just kinda got things open so I don't know dealing with that with with football. And you know. Euro twenty twenty last year was supposed to be the euros for the entire continent hold games held in multiple different Different countries and now. There's the possibility that they may have to put the entire tournament. Maybe two three or four locations instead of doing like eight ten or twelve like they had originally planned. And that's you know that's if things stay the same way that they are now i. I'm hoping things get better. But i am a little bit of a pessimist at times. And covert has kinda.

So I've been doing a little bit more per thing per wager you inspired me a little bit rick and also it does feel nice when you do hit that, you don't get your money plus like two dollars back because you actually put some money on it. However despite a couple of nights, hits has not been going well, and that is why I'm not a professional handicapper. I am not a professional gambler. It has not been good I've I've come to realize the struggle of betting with your head versus your heart hundred percent real thing you have to gravel with. especially like in the NBA Playoffs Oh.

But as you said, it keeps baseball season a little more interesting being the fact that you're a giants fan as fan and I was talking to a giants fan the other day, and he says, if I see one more diamondback game I'M GONNA lose my mind and so you know I hear about this guy, you know winker on the red zone like who normally I would know all these guys but we're. Just seeing the same old team. So it is a way to keep things somewhat fresh because it keeps US paying a little bit more attention. No totally normally, I would kind of have an idea about Jesse winger because one of my favorite fantasy leagues plan is my home league with some cousins. It's an NL only league. So I've I've been waiting for the Jesse winker breakout, and so you said something I didn't know the Jesse winker breakout happened so. Yeah. It's a really cool thing. I'm getting to kind of it's. Not that they're making me. Oh, you'd better on this game that's happening, but it's it's kind of making me do some more homework than I. than. I normally would be doing without fantasy baseball. It's not just watching sports center for an hour. It's got to see WHO's pitching. Oh, normally, I'd be like Oh. Okay. Well, spitting he's been this year. Let's not play against him this year. If if you throw out a name from the Marlins, I, I, don't know how Pablo Lopez pitching. But. I have to look it up and it kind of keeps me engaged which every like. Yeah outside of Shane beaver there not too many guys I could say, well, he's doing great. Right now, totally hear you but you know what's funny is I've because I bet on that giant's game. I've been watching a lot more giants lately which I normally. Don't do too much like I'll watch their whole game. I think it's because of the pandemic I'm just so starved for baseball, but now on their on at the same time. During a commercial, I'll go over the giants and now there are over five hundred. So there are there the first wildcard right now but anyway, bet US dot com it's fun dominic two thumbs up a lot of fun. Oh absolutely and really quick do denilson lament is Padre. Oh. Wow.

"Them. And so is there any suggestion that people had decided to serve explicitly for that route to citizenship? I think some probably it factored into their decision to sign up. America's one of the few countries that allows this the French Foreign Legion. They allow some of their legionnaires to apply for citizenship. After three years Russia has a fast track path for citizenship. For some of their non Russians but America's fairly unique and the irony of not letting immigrants become citizens without them. The army would have failed to meet its goals nearly every year between two thousand and two and two thousand and thirteen so the ranks of non-citizens are not just a a nice to have a bit of extra help absolutely integral to the armed services operations. Absolutely the Department of Defense found in two thousand sixteen non-citizens tend to be of higher quality than their citizen counterparts. They perform better. They have lower attrition rates and are more likely to have skills at the military needs like medical and it expertise as well think ristic diversity. They are absolutely essential to the military. To what will happen with this trend. Is there a chance to Department of Defense will go back on this? Well lengthening the paper trail if not changing the actual requirements. It's a tricky one. The lawsuit is being fast tracked so we may actually have a ruling in the next few months. Which would be great. It might help those already on the path of citizenship. Get back on it. But I fear until there's an actual change at the Department of Defense. The highest levels non-citizens are out of luck and the sad thing is these new policies. Don't make the country safer they harm military recruitment the hurt military readiness and they prevent the United States from utilizing talented residents. Immigrants are not throws me.

This year was meant to be packed sporting events but pretty much. The entire global calendar of sports has been white clear by the pandemic rabid fans and for the industry itself. It's been devastating but restrictions have eased matches or starting to happen again with a few changes in the last few weeks. Things have been starting to return to version of normal in countries where lockdown to been eased earlier such as career. Taiwan matches being going on for a few weeks off that in Europe. It was only really the return of the Bundesliga which is Germany's domestic football league. Which heralded the return of sport for Fans Bo? Franklin is Economists Assistant News Editor. Much as me going ahead behind closed doors without any spectators and this has been for the safety of both fans and athletes as well but it's created a few strange situations. What do you mean what? What kind of situations so? When the Bundesliga restarted in Germany the loudest sounds the teams would have heard with being their own players coaches on the sidelines. And the blasts of referees whistles on in Asia where sports have been presuming for the last few weeks now organizers of turn to some strange replacements for spectators in South Korea's domestic football league. They've been piping in crowd noises two stadiums and they've even put mannequins in the stands one team in South Korea's domestic football league was accused of using mannequins from sex dole manufacturer in the stands complete with signs for X. rated websites on the mannequins and in Taiwan local Baseball League has taken to putting cardboard spectators in the stands including printouts of Fan's faces on those spectators. This is something that German teams have been turning to as well fans can pay to have themselves stuck onto the fake spectators. So it's almost like they're so certainly spectators are protected then from from the risks but what about the players themselves. How how is that? Being handled well organizers putting precautions into place to keep both players and other stuff as safe as possible. The obvious things Mosques being used. They're not on the pitch equipment such as footballs being disinfected. But playing any kind of match still brings a huge number of people together for a televised rugby Union match. For example world rugby the organizing body says the at least one hundred and seventy four people needed including water carriers players on camera crews and so this means that plays a kind of existing in bubbles almost in Germany that football teams are being tested for the coronavirus several times a week and and either Found positive has to be isolated and quarantined from teammates. But what about the effect of all of this on the the huge industries that many of these sports represent KPMG estimates the Europe's five biggest national football? League'S STAND TO LOSE FOUR BILLION EUROS. They don't return to play soon but if they do return to play behind closed doors the losses will still be about twenty to thirty percent of a bigger leagues. Tend not to rely on matchdays sales. So that's tickets pints merchandise that kind of thing. England's Premier League in the two thousand eighteen season only realizing it for about fourteen percents of their income but smaller leaks with smaller audiences on TV rely on much they sales much more which for some leagues could be an absolute disaster if they're operating on fine margins and what offends been doing in the meantime when all these matches have been canceled. We have seen some unlikely interests from broadcasters in smaller sports on smaller leagues have restarted already. So Taiwan's baseball. League for example is being broadcast for American fans who come watch any domestic games and South Korea's domestic. Football League is being broadcast by the BBC. In Britain the Times one suo nil listen to that surreal silence. When has victory in the opening game of the season ever been met with that kind of silence but for the meantime the Silver Lining here? Is that people who really want to see. Some sports can or is it still too odd. Even even then fa now sports hungry fans seem to have fixtures back in any form even if that means in MT stadiums without spectators and a bit of a weird atmosphere the first Bundesliga fixtures after the break had their biggest ever international audiences. But if this situation is going to go on for the foreseeable future and lie. Spectators can't return. Is it going to put fans off in the long term to watch games with less of an atmosphere possibly fake fans in the crowds permanently crowd noise being piped in? Is that going to be too unsettling and could put fans off both. Thanks very much for joining us. Thanks Jason.

"The two or three things in play there. We use Whether you you put your economist but I think there is a consensus. We can have a short sharp recession among some and a longer session mixed others but the one thing we certain about his people's one it's will be bruised As a result of this in terms of the ticket PAG public sponsors certainly up looking very carefully at that balance sheets Them Marketing Budget is one of the first things to attack trim and then of course broadcast that looking at the budgets for the remainder of the year and how they can seize oblique screen that amount to content in that period of time. So we're looking at a lot of events in a very narrow window and competing for much more constrained dollar And that's going to be a challenge. Even fool everybody else's being talking about this we're expecting sector this sector to be pretty badly impacted in terms of supply Everybody's hurting from not having the way expected that's for sure we're okay but we don't have any way expected And there are other agencies in that ecosystem hospitals Marketing will production logistics Sorry to say but an ready pains to say but it's true that they make the and we may not be looking at the same supply chain comes Type to the ability to organize and hosts events we think will be challenged because we hope it will be very very limited but the be companies coming back in September October. Able to deliver so all of that kind of Constantine is into a bit of a challenge that sort of Consolidation potentially is going to be across rights event host Bruce Circles Agency sector supply. Here that that is a is a real Wise so the new reality. I guess I'm just want my question if we were if this was a logical world and export was logical in there would be a body a- G. Twenty something that oversees this and puts everything into its into neat packages. Is that supposed to questions? Is there anybody that can do that on? Is it likely that that body will evolve or peer of the next year Well there is a body that coordinates we. We did a piece last waken and I think we were asking. Is it time for some sort of Supra body which not super low good as well but super sits above sports? And of course you've got the likes of the IRC who do sit across a number of sports in the Olympic context but of course you know if football or basketball or included in that is he's not responsible for speaking for the MBA and for for UEFA so icy aside and they do speak for number sports that note there there is no supra sports body which is coordinating across the sports And that I think has become quite painfully apparent In the course of the last four to eight weeks and it's not surprising. Not It's not a criticism. I think I suppose been evolving over decades in terms of that. You're finding that it librium in the yearly calendar around seasonality but also just finding times when major events onto have lapping so he famously of course always had the alden even year distinction which is a very good way of the Olympic Games missing other major championships are the Reputable Cup final But an within within the she you tend to find whenever way working with major rightsholders. I'm looking you events you're asking. That question will win. Should we be who we colliding with that week? And that has taken decades to find that sort of equilibrium and suddenly you have left of NAFTA field on comes covet and suddenly disrupt all of that. Equilibrium throws everything up in the air all at once and everybody rushes to try and find an alternative date for their events but they do that all at once in the same month no one is coordinating so you ever industries have that so yeah yeah I think whether you're talking a national level Darris IT in context of one would the blissfully we haven't had too much. Recently Brexit at European level Certainly significant amounts coordination by the European Union across industries but also retail console him their international trade bodies working within hospitality will travel and tourism. Who Look you know. Working with independent bodies working with quasi government bodies and those bodies those those Entities working on their own accounts as well but they are coordinating so there. There is a common voice and they are at least coming together and thinking together. I think because that really is not happening With within sports so to our knowledge. No-one you know very senior level in Formula One talking with the NBA will the NFL speaking to an ATP or WC or the in that grouping and we think there's a space for that we're having some conversations about how we might find very informal grouping that It kinda light. Your sort of two British National Government level we have Cobra will say each who come together regularly just to spend short period of time pulling all of the stakeholders together and just making sure that there is you know a good degree of coordination. I think that's really what's required and we are having those conversations infomally with clients a refund US sales in positioning into lock in that That shot that we think there's a role for a smaller group of very senior stakeholders covering as many of those big private rights holders in some some of the larger initial federations just to make sure the degree of coordination to avoid this car crash of Canada in September October. But we have fifty to sixty percent undisturbed at sports events. Fifty sixty percent. Mole the normal. That's assuming Goes AHEAD ON PUBLIC HEALTH? Expo virologists so no idea whether we will indeed be back in a position where we can have uni- at ten. But we hope radio pray but we We do but Yeah we do think that is lacking and you say this decent coordination within some sports individual sports as you'd expect so UEFA with the National Heff as the conclusion of the League and European football and in the The Euro Twenty Twenty nine twenty one that that looks be functioning pretty well Tennis after say less so I mean you look at Roland. Garros unilaterally moving because they had to a nate nasties that is going on with it and rescheduled their September. But it's not just me saying it. You read the players saying that. This fed degree of dysfunction in the in the level of organization between so many powerful buddies. Atp W. A. T. F. L. T. A. A. T. C. so it's Kinda reveals whether isn't that coordination even it within a sport amongst its key stakeholders and I think. Federal is out this week. Tweeting TO SAVE TIME. We had that discussion about merging. Atp and and other players. I mean talking about just the function of the League and the fact that so many redundant endorsements very exposed own income within have prize money because they need to play to one and you just don't repeating themselves as as well organized patches they should be and as I said we just think above the sports. There is no coordination what let's turn the conversation pointed towards your other clients on the city host side because they're that's the sort of constituency that. I always think that is underrepresented in terms of the compensation. There's a sort of blithe assumption. Okay the city hosted in in May but it will. In September it will in whatever date the rights holder decides but as we know from any experience in our local that is not always the case in the cities are going to be under enormous pressure. No the in the Euro Twenty twenty or twenty twenty one point football tornado. Obviously the Panini plan was to spread it far and wide And some of those cities. I think we can do that next year. We were in for this year not next year. I'm sure there'd be lots of other examples but just give us a picture of the view of big sport from that side of the table because it's it's one is quite often Not really thought about me. Yeah no I think you're right. It's the they We we take a possibly slightly country view to the importance of host cities again in this ecosystem we everyone. I think focuses and rightly the very very big investors in his Abreu Kosten sponsors And then gate but to your point Richard. I haven't heard too many people in the last few weeks. When took about sports events rescehduling in order to hold onto the Revenues and then we start talking about Gaetan ticket. I haven't been too many people talking about the investment from cities and actually they should be because cities we think probably the biggest investors in sport whether you're talking about the capital investment programs around major sports facilities which will rank in the billions around the big setpiece night before a couple of the Olympic Games Or increasingly in terms of Hosting fees which are becoming the norm and rightly because sport contributes directly into the economies of those cities region hosting them with visitation and spending to that so. I think specific probably if they would if you were to pull them and would have it. We just have and will be releasing a little bit of research in the course of the next few weeks that relationship between city host. That you'd probably find a little bit taken for granted Because they are such incredibly large investors in school so when we have an argument which we've seen breakout into the open between the Japan it's Because of the political sensitivity around who picks up the bill and the reality is both sides. Picking up Very substantial costs in relation to the rescheduling the event I would say given the size of the Japanese economy that cost probably are insignificant against the how many trillion turnovers GDP As as the He's cost but that that is a very sensitive issue An going back to the publish number of about twelve and a half billion invested by the Japanese in the Olympic Games and you know by some estimates probably twice that we've found that previous in big games that the the real investment is probably quite substantially more than the published. But when you stop impose In you just look at twelve and a half billion published invested in sports event. I mean who else does that? No one else invest. That's a level and this the same by winning gains within the big set piece on the fee for anyway prevents billions and billions of pounds investment team. Imagine spoke and it's it's seems to us that's actually fan. Proportion government knows that because the benefits takes from hosting Even before you look social public health benefits of the social events Stimulating more physical activity in in the public. Health benefits fled from that. So we think the investments fair. It's just not recognized. And is there a specific question in terms of whether or not the rights holders what the return how the return on investment for from the city side is looked at because all of us? My Suction is always. Oh it's an economic equation of some sort and the and as we're seeing now that's real you know you when when it stops we certainly noticed that economic benefit goes away quite quickly. But that's that's the the sort of front and center of it. Is there anything else other other objectives on the city side changing or are they more nuance than just? K- we get is a tourism dollar that which AC? Yep Absolutely. I think it's it's changed over the years as it has with every other investments Probably Bob cost to is always got the economics of it. And you know famously. We always talked about sponsorship in the early days being driven by the ELSA chairman because it was man now a women's win In the early days of sports it was about National Prestige Perhaps only that about the in terms of the justification in the motivation housing major events. It was a big festival celebration. Sports there was no question what the benefit was. And we've seen that mole forever.

"euro twenty" Discussed on ESPN FC
"Competing for Champions League and Europa League places and if you can't play another game where if you get to the point where you have to figure out a split teams. Maybe there's another option. Maybe get the teams around the table and you agree okay in the interest of our league and are you a fisher. Who are we going to send right yet? Is that means that we send Manchester United instead of Leicester because it's good for the League competing? It's not a great example more point but you know what I'm saying if it's close then let's do that and then maybe we have something where because obviously a lot of this is about money. Whatever revenue united earn get split under some formula with Leicester you know what I mean you choose the best teams to represent? Yeah definitely I I just think people have to think. Creatively all these options have to be on the table. And hopefully you know there's going to be fewer people like like Karren Brady who are just going to go and hire lawyers to tie this up in court for a long time. Yeah no hopefully people can understand the serious and get the right consensus to move on Before we move on we have to figure out what to do with Euro Twenty twenty. Because Yeah it's moved. They're going to tentatively figure out When to move it to also the champion's league final. Obviously it's not going to be played. May Thirtieth in May still be played in a stumble. If it's going to be at the end of June we will find out. I'm slightly wary. I am not an empty meteorologist but I look at the number of cases in Turkey. Look at the fact that Turkey shares a land border with Iran which obviously one of the hardest hit countries are. Look at the way it has been spreading. Turkey might be different moment in time. They may be dealing with us. Come the end of June so there has to be contingency. I think there as well If you move the euros and you move it to the same dates next summer you're going to have to adjust number things the schedule. Yeah so the nation's eight final four which I personally really like the nation's last year Based on the priority is it's not going to be the priority. I agree with you There's some World Cup qualifying games. Hopefully you can reach them. Understanding with fever. there's the whip but then the other two. I think it's more problematic. One is the women's well. There's the the European under twenty one's yet you find. What is the women's euros which which is scheduled in England? Which kicks off. I believe on July fifth so there would be an overlap of of about a week until the end of the tournament. I think as well as such as the overlap saying all the media attention is going to be on the men's euros. You'RE NOT GONNA get the build up to the women's euros coverage of the they would use you to get what I think they should consider. Doing is moving the women's euros down to twenty twenty two Argument being is they're literally will be nothing VAT summer. Yeah because the worker as obviously it's a winter World Cup exactly so that would that would work again. Crunch the numbers. But you don't want to create a situation where you're having a women zero you've got this great wave of of interest and enthusiasm women's football and then you just cannibalize it by parking the main euro at the top of it And I know people are going to say well. Why don't you move the men's zero to your twenty twenty? Well it's very simple because they're gonNA have a World Cup four months whereas the women's World Cup is until two thousand twenty three The other issue is of course. Doggerel fee for club World Cup It's going to be held in China. Kicks off. I think it's set to kick off May June You're going to have twenty. Four teams eight is the new version has a new version. Eight of them are big European teams. It's going to be very lucrative four teams participating in it there's a whole political backdrop to this which is kind of a power struggle between eight and FIFA Shefrin I- Jining Fantino logic from UEFA standpoint suggests right that's gotta go. Yeah but then again there's teams in Africa in South America in CONCACAF single. Wait a minute we were promised this. That's that's that's the that's the Big One. I mean you know better than me but I I don't know what the relationship over something like this where there's so much money at stake. And there's there's there's also a state not just the money but also sense of superiority between you find fee for of lack. Who's GonNa let go because if I can standard said okay right great for euros per we? Don't we don't care. We go so we also have our own compositions to run here and while we give you the space of the workup. The newspaper comes welcomed out. We spent so much time and already so much money organising finding a right way of in clubs on board these this enough now to just put it on the been all moving to another day. It's just for your ufo competition so who would win between it. Tricky I mean Fi. Uefa are increasingly aligned with With comparable so South America many ways presumed the Copa America has to move as well so I think they could make a pretty strong stand. The other thing is if a club World Cup is only. It'd be lucrative if you have those eight big teams and the Big South American team's going to control the balance of power We don't know who those eight European teams are because there's been different talk about different criteria. I think we can safely assume that row Madrid and Liverpool are going to be two of them because they won the Champions League champions off the five big lakes Beta you think knows who knows I mean. That's not beating right now. It doesn't even seem that relevant. Yeah to be honest but I would appeal to those clubs right now. Say because those clubs are GonNa say well wait a minute so I can release my players for the euros. Not GonNa dime out of it or it can follow fief instructions and send them to the club. World Cup where I'm GonNa make between fifty and one hundred million G. does you no brainer. I'm gonNA appeal to their sense of altruism and their sense of being a part of a bigger hole that if it comes down to this you find your solution and you don't just look after yourself and the money you're GonNa make from the club World Cup because obviously it might come down to these clubs saying choosing UEFA OVER FETA or vice versa. And I think it's important that fans care about this. They make sure they make their voices heard and Wine to other solutions have been suggested one would be having a winter break so to speak in midseason In twenty twenty twenty twenty twenty one next season and playing the euro then..

"In a set schedule. I imagine the Italian. Fa WON'T BE THE ONLY ONES lobbying for postponing this tournament. No no he's not at all in fact there's at least half a dozen other me to large size. Faa's who who have already signed on and and they want to look at all the options in terms of postponing euro. Twenty twenty one of the key elements in this specifically in the case of say the they do have a plan together as they hope to get the all clear to keep to to start playing again. Possibly in early May and the idea was in those two months between May and June you you play out the rest of the season or most of it perhaps modified playoff to go and complete the season and settle what you need to settle. That might also gave enough time to go or should also give enough time to go and complete the Champions League albeit probably not in its current format. Remember there's several round of sixteen which as yet unresolved and of course you would have to move the final. Currently scheduled for May thirtieth stumbled. But but that is the impetus and it seems to be a compromise solution which would ensure that we could get. Some closure people would lose out too much financially but of course. It's all predicated on getting the all clear and start playing again in early. May and we have no idea that's going to happen. But in all likelihood cab used to gesture everything we know at the moment. Your we'll be postponed. Yeah I mean it would have to be a scenario where you can't. I think the only way it goes ahead is if there's a scenario where somehow you can't play football in most of Europe in early. May but suddenly you can in early June. I think that's extremely far fetched. I think you have said. They're going to listen to their stakeholders listen to their constituents. They're very few people out there who really have a strong vested interest in Euro Twenty Twenty. Going ahead come. What may I'm talking about Federations League's players Players Union And I think ultimately I think the majority opinion will prevail Wayne. Rooney's writing for the Sunday Times. Now this is just an extra of his article saying well. If current viruses as bad as the prediction site then there may come a stage. When you have to decide whether to cancel the season completely from a player's point of view. If the season has finished in June finish in June the euro will be cancelled one hundred percent. We're happy to play up until September if the season extends to then if that's how it has to be that's all job as long as we know is safe to play and it's a safe environment for spectators will play the next world conference in November December.

"I think it's a team that they can beat I think it's a good time to play them. 'cause usually Bruce's teams take a while to get going a lot of not lot of turnover there as well so Yeah I'm looking forward to. Hopefully they can build onto. What HAPPENED IN SEATTLE? I liked like we spoke about earlier in the show. I liked a lot of things that I saw from this fire team. So I think it's a game they can get. It's a bare minimum. That they win one of these games coming. You can't come in to that home opener. Having lost three games like you just. We talked about this in the in the in the pre season preview. There's this you know coming into the season. It's a hard. It's a hard start. This is a win to Seattle not going to New England. I mean Orlando. It's Orlando g got to win that And then you've got you know Atlanta and then new rebels and then Chicago Nyc AFC in Columbus like. That is a hard tough schedule to start the season with and they need to build that momentum you know they need to get people behind them were moved into the city Let's not worry about the rebrand like let's just winsome games. They need to win some games. So New England. I really am. I'm I was. I was optimistic about Seattle game and I thought they looked. Okay if they look pretty good so I guess I would have to say that. I'm relatively optimistic about New England. They have to beat Orlando. That's just like not even in the realm of possibility that they don't they have to win that game period. So yeah that's my thoughts. Yeah no look. I think I agree with you. you know those guys are GonNa feel They're gonNA feel the not pressure but they're gonNa feel the what's that word. I'm looking for the Shit they're gonNA feel the need to get points. I mean out ridiculous ridiculous. They're going to feel the need and the importance of getting these points Like you said it's scheduled to be really hard from what I saw in Seattle. I think that there's a Maj- There's ideas in the room. They're organized I'm sure they're gonNA come out a little scarred from that game because they were in it and they had chances to. Maybe I got sick to my stomach man so I have faith I have faith. They know what's at stake may know what's what lies ahead and I think both results are gettable. So let's Let's see what happens so the only thing I will. I want to end this By bringing it back to Italy so really quickly. I meant to meant to mention that. So they're you know they're playing all these games behind closed doors and everything and one thing that You know probably bears. Mentioning is the fact that the Euro Twenty twenty tournament is you know a couple of months away I think actually starts one hundred days exactly from today and the first game is in Rome so you know the the euro is are the I mean like. It's just an amazing tournament. I WANNA go so badly like it's it's on the bucket list for sure and I kinda wanted to go to this one but if there's going to be like everybody dead over there. I guess we can't really can't really do that. Yeah no I I mean they're they're talking about bad. They're talking about the Olympics and Tokyo right. Yeah I mean it's just it's just not a good situation so I dunno Sam. Wash your hands. Don't buy the masks. Apparently people need those. I don't know I mean naturally being sensitive but I read like. Don't buy the masks. I duNno don't call people. I think it's pretty basic stuff fist-bump instead of high five and how I don't know. Yeah Asians and the what's going on All right there we go. We wrapped it up on a random. Note Thanks for listening. Everybody and we'll be back next week. Take Care Bye bye..
Xavi responds to rumors he will replace Ernesto Valverde at Barcelona
"Course a lot of rumors surrounding valverde and his future over the last twenty four hours and Chevy coming in to replace him. Got My right and say that that's not going to happen now. We'll at least until the summer. Well it's not going to be job. Each Avi seems to have a call themselves out. There were rumors swirling around that. They'd approached Ronald Cooman in which I'm skeptical about. But if they did the Mona Luther calendar this Guy's playing euro twenty twenty in the summer but certainly the the other rumor is how they feel about all this all this sticking around Behind his back might just say guys you guys think on the problem let me we just go and walk out rather than enjoy these last. Few months without Luis Suarez as well. So they Kinda I think pretty needlessly made a rod further own back with this very ham fisted way. They went about things.
Euro 2020 draw: England in group with Croatia while Wales meet Italy
"Thank you very much God. Meanwhile in Romania the JOE is made for the Euro Two thousand nine hundred finals next summer here it is on its glory in group. Eight Italy Wales and Switzerland or Jones again in Group B Denmark Finland Belgium and Russia in Group C. It's the Dutch Ukraine Austria and then one of the four teams will qualify via the playoffs in Group Day England Croatia and the Czech Republic will also be joined by a team entering via the playoffs in group e Spain Sweden Poland then another playoff win a group F. That's the big one is Jimmy France Portugal and and then another playoff win at for a lot more on the jaw gap. It might take some people a while to fully wrap their heads around euro. Twenty twenty of course This tournament unlike any other at the anniversary tournament. It's not going to be hosted at one place. It's spread all over Europe from From Glasgow and London in the West all the way to Baku Ho. That's all the way to the to the east so these groups that were drawn. There's different dynamics. The top seeds get a whole bunch of games at home which of course is also is also going to impact things. I think tremendously so if you're the likes of of Spain if you're the likes of Italy Holland and of course England Then it'd be pretty happy. Tell you. WHO's not going to be happy? Germany Portugal and France the last two World Cup winners with of of course the defending euro champions Portugal sandwiched in between. They're all in the same group we don't know who the fourth one is. Because that's another one of the vagaries of of this draw that there's still issues to be settled via the playoffs but it presents a really interesting dynamic. Now remember a this is a two thousand fourteen year old like the last one which means that some third-placed teams will advance Portugal. Of course advances the third place team last time around they. He did it without winning a game and of course they went on to be crowned European champion so doesn't necessarily mean one of these big three Portugal. Germany and France are going out early But it does mean that you have to be careful whoever whoever that that fourth-placed or that the fourth seed in that group is going to be you know that teams are GonNa go all out against them because you simply cannot even contemplate dropping points if you want to advance as third seed so all to play for and it starts this summer and tell you what some people don't like all the traveling around but it's going to be different. It's going to be good

He's been having a pretty decent year on the Premier League Looking forward to it so for Automatic Matt Qualification still three more slots that are available and those are currently in. Let's see Group D where we have Denmark. Sitting on top with fifteenpoints Switzerland second with fourteen points Republic of Ireland in third with twelve points. And then next we have Georgia who's enforced but they can't qualify automatically they have eight points But but let's see. We have Denmark hosting the Republic of Ireland so you have first place versus third place. And then Switzerland will be playing against a brawl to. WHO's in last place I mean anything can happen but you know I'm betting that it'll be Switzerland and Denmark qualifying out of that group we'll see And then we got group e Croatia has already qualified But then we have in second place place. We have hungry with twelve points Wales in third with eleven points and then Slovakia in fourth with ten points. So let's let's see we have Wales playing hungry tomorrow and then. Azerbaijan will be playing against since Slovakia. So anything can happen. I mean those. Those three teams are separated by two points. And there's one more automatic qualification slot So we'll see I mean the others they can still qualify the playoff but You know I mean it's automatic. Promotion Ocean is is definitely definitely the way to go so Yeah there's still a decent amount of games left to be played We'll see who qualifies next looking forward to it Obviously there won't be Some teams that won't qualify until the end of March when the The playoff you know ends on the thirty first of March they play for all four so But for these I twenty. We'll definitely know who it is by tomorrow evening so looking forward to it finally the end of you know regular Euro Twenty Twenty qualifying with the exception of the playoff I don't WanNA leave out On the other two major confederations right. Now that are I see major considerations all the confederations are major but Africa Asia right now are also Obviously playing matches are international. Break district two purposes Asia's doing there's for World Cup qualifying all sine While Africa's doing there's for the twenty twenty one Africa Cup of Nations so There's there's been and a lot of matches I mean. Obviously you know those are two huge confederations. The basically have the same teams as you're actually think Asian may have a little bit maybe ten countries fewer than than Europe and Africa put If you're looking for matches to watch you know there's there's plenty eight when Africa today Monday the eighteenth. We had South Tomato Principi hosting Ghana the Gambia Hosting the Democratic Republic Congo My African team that I follow Cape Verde is hosting Mozambique COMOROSS is hosting Egypt. Kenya hosting Togo and Botswana hosting Defending African champions Algeria tonight. And then for tomorrow. Let's let's see. We got Barundi hosting Morocco Mauritania Hosting Central African Republic Zambia hosting Zimbabwe Equatorial Guinea hosting Tunisia Libya hosting Tanzania Ethiopia hosting Cote d'Ivoire or the Ivory Coast and Niger hosting Madagascar. So I spent a lot of time in Africa because of my previous job and so I've gotten to understand a lot of the African soccer culture. Obviously it varies from country to country three and region to region. The fans are just as passionate Some of the the culture and cultural political situation and sometimes tend to interfere with matches not as far as like on the field. But you know whether they get the kickoff times are on time or if you know games are are played in the stadiums. They're supposed to be played in. You know little things like that. I mean it's a little quirky sometime but I mean the African fans are absolutely really amazing. I mean I it's it's great to to watch games In Africa so those are some of the matches that are are you know for today and tomorrow In the you know the next while it looks like they're not gonNA have the next round of Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers until next August. Which is pretty wild? I think about it but that's good because you know we've been having too many international brakes anyway but over to Asia. Let's see they're playing all of their matches Che's for this round For qualifying the next ones. I should say The plane all them tomorrow. So it'll be the Maldives hosting Guam Syria Hussein. The Philippines Nepal Houston Kuwait Jordan hosting Taiwan Hong Kong hosting Cambodia. Media actually went nowhere that matches going to be plagued considering everything that's going on with Hong Kong now. It looks like that game will actually be in Hong Kong Iraq hosting Bahrain was Beckstein hosing Palestine Yemen hosting Singapore Afghanistan hosting Tatar Oman hosting India and India's completely like building up their their football like base with you know they they have their Indian Super League now They're just investing a lot of money kind of the way China's doing it just not on the same scale into the game within the country. Sorry so I would say look for India to over the next ten to fifteen years definitely become a much better team than they have been Me and Mar Hosting Mongolia. Lia cured republic or Stan hosting Tajijistan Malaysia hosting Indonesia Vietnam Thailand Turkmenistan hosting Sri Lanka and Lebanon hosting North Korea. So yes I mean. There's there's plenty of football for the next two days as for the Of the International League for the players go back to their National Teams C.`Mon Club teams on Wednesday one of the matches. That was was huge for for this break that I did not get the opportunity to watch But I did read about it. saw a highlighter to was a Brazil in Argentina It's the first game that messy was back since the Copa America. This past summer you know. He was suspended but he's back and he scored the deciding goal in this match. He's early thirteenth fourteenth. Minute But the the big headline aside from messy returning back to the Argentinian team. After we have suspended was I guess there was some George Atkinson some trash talking between messy and the Brazil head coach you know messy was basically telling him to be quiet. Who knows what they were saying to each other I didn't see any of the interviews But you know it's always good when mess. He's back for Argentina Yeah and then this coming summer again. There's another Copa America so It's always good to see that that rivalry between those two teams Brazil and Argentina. I mean wh when working you say Argentina one this one but you know Brazil still the champions of in South America so now the funny thing that I read this is totally unrelated to Brazil or Argentina but Corinne Ben Dema police for Real Madrid. French guy hasn't been called up for the national team in. I don't know how along I bet it's probably the some people don't even remember that he's ever played for France but The President of the French Football Federation recently said that Bensimon will never again be selected for the French national team Nothing there's some history between those guys or something that may have happened in quite read into it but Basically Benzon saying that. Oh if the president is sticking his nose in there saying that You know that I'm not going to be selected even though I could still play. Obviously he's still doing his thing for a Real Madrid He's basically saying. Let me play for someplace else. Let me me play for another national team which he would have to be released by France Basically saying that they're never going to call him up which the president has said. Even though I don't think did he a shop the manager for the French national team. I don't believe he said that but Bensman wants to be released and he would be able to be eligible. I guess because of his family or descendents of parents may be He'd be able to eligible should say to play for Algieria jury there the current champions of Africa and I think it would be ridiculous for to see Benza playing for Algebra I mean really good way I mean be good. You know he'd be able to be in a completely different tournament completely. Different continent you know I think that'd be a good thing for African football as well. I mean you know you got money Sala in Benza. All on the same name content is on the same team. He'd be on Algeria with Benza. I mean that would be just ridiculous and amazing to watch and you know something definitely worth seeing. AH The next African Cup of nations and possibly the World Cup it will happen. I think that France probably will not let it happen because I don't think they want to You know have something happened where they would have to you know potentially play against him in the World Cup But this is the first time that I can think of a senior player lease you know begging to be released to go to play for another national team. I think it'd be good. I think he should be allowed to go. They're not going to select them anymore. You know why let them sit there and Rot essentially not not play. I mean he's still playing for his club team. Obviously but I think You know why not let him play. Let him go let him do his thing. Francis is fine. Algeria is fine too but you know would definitely be nice to to see that. So what do you think about that you know. Let me know what you guys think again. Now put the contact information in the show description. So you guys can hit me up on instagram or twitter or email and I'd be interested to. Let's see what you guys think about players. You know that haven't been selected or aren't going to be selected for their current national teams. That would have eligibility for another team. If you'd think that they should be allowed Oughta go or if they should not be able to play me for example I wouldn't be able to play for another national team. I have no other nationality. No other kind of ties to any countries other than in the United States Germany but that really means nothing only. I live here because of my wife. My kids on hand my kids would actually be eligible to play for like three are- different teams which would be pretty crazy but I'm sure there's you know plenty of other people out there like that. That essentially select their national the national team from two three and even four or more Different eligibility paths. I know doc in Heard about this in like women's basketball. Obviously you know the. US Women's team is really good and There there's some I guess. The Russian League is like the biggest league in the world and there's you know other leagues and if the WNBA The US and there's some American Women that played the US their whole lives. The they're Americans. They've never been any place else but they were eligible to get other passports from other country's based on grandparents and parents and Because you know some of these European leagues they have like a limit on how many non European players can be on a team but but then if say an American. That's really good. You know has like grandparents. They were Italian or something. They can get European seeming Italian passport which basically makes them European Paean Sanal. It changes the numbers on the team. Yada Yada that was just a little tangent but I think that I don't know I I. I guess I don't really care I mean I'm I'm all about the sport I don't really care about who's playing for who I guess. As long as everything is fair and legal and falls within the rules. I don't think it really matters to be honest with you. The stuff we talk about during the international break. I'm looking forward to being over. Hello I'm ready to to go back to You know watching my my club teams This Saturday Sunday Sunday coming up speaker. It's gotTa match at home I may try to go see But they're gonNA be playing Karlsruhe. Karlsruhe is another team. That's in the second Bundesliga but they are maybe like a half an hour. Drive from Stewart west of Stewart So I mean I think that'd be a good game. Sure it'd be a lot of fans from Karlsruhe because it's so close Yeah looking forward to that in the following week store guard replaying Sand House in which is another team. That's may be like forty five minutes to an hour north of here so That actually wouldn't be a bagging to go to and I'm a member too so I could probably possibly get tickets. I don't know we'll see but I'm looking forward to going back to that. US has done their thing. You know they got the game against Cuba Germany's done their thing. They've already qualified. So now I'm ready to go back to my club team so With that.

"Comey's must be able to welcome back it's look at Saturday's key. Euro twenty twenty qualifies involving some of the nations closest to US shows. We'll start with Northern Ireland versus the Netherlands in Group C. The situation here is that northern and needs to win both their final games and hope their rivals drop points then. They've done quite quite well to stay on the coattails grovel because really tough juries and they absolutely but the fact is the sevens one with Patty power to beat the Netherlands who have four to eleven five it sixteen to a five that draw the atmosphere will be pumping wins apart. But can they get anything out of this lightly to get anything out of it. Although nothing worth mentioning it probably be Michael. O'Neill last home in guy in charge. He's agreed to stay on as long as they're still in the euro is You know he's actually said. He threw their base looking extremely unlikely. Now they were close to get but not magnificent result Whitehall. I laid Quite lights on and can see three late goals. I'll just feel that this show in that game. I am the game against Germany. The two tough games I recall about an attack on a chance there in an even more must-win situation they're going to be even more positive So that's what that leads onto. My Selection Hollandse win and both teams to score twelve to five. Looks looks at Bat. Samir if you look at you're going to think where's the threat gonNA come from but I do play a very positive.

You're at the match what was it like the scenes inside the vessel leschi stadium were really shocking and appalling it was a shameful night for European football because England were where ahead in the game early it was never really a contest they were comfortably ahead by half-time this sort of conventional match atmosphere disappeared and you could only hear the the racist fascist element of the crowd is important to remember that this is where the club Leschi Sophia are widely believed to have a fan base it's being infiltrated by Neo Nazi element and that Neo Nazi element was prevalent last night they were Nazi salutes there were there were people at the game dressed all in black their faces covered up Kuwaiti to try and escape but densification and they weren't fans they weren't there to watch the game had no interest in it like they were there to cause trouble into where some some deeply troubling views at the press conferences Gareth Southgate spoke about however halftime they talked about not coming back for a second half but in the end decided to do so throughout this I know that whatever we do might be perceived as doing enough but I think we've made a major statement sadly my players because of their experiences our own country a hardened racism so they're smiling you know they're smiling they they've played well they know they've played well they should and the debate on whether England should have walked off or not will continue for some time I think personally they they did the right thing they followed the three steps protocol there was an announcement over the Tannoy the second stage of that would have been detained the players often the third would have been to abandon the game if the officials felt that that racist abuse had your international level and really they're asking the same question of UEFA which walking off the pitch would have done which is what are you going to do about this and really as much as a team lacking Linda high profile side can make statement sent around the rest of the world by by walking off in the face of racist -scriminate story abuse this needs to be followed up with action from the highest level and for too long you punishments of being insufficient England is last visit to Bulgarian two thousand eleven yielded a four thirty four thousand pound fine for the home side for racism is just not enough or defect and really there still needs to be much more done by you I for to take the lead on these issues next the government's juggling at domestic agenda against a looming breaks at deadline political editor.
