A stars a number ten and you look at it the first star from this like okay kind of boring but may be understandable and both sides were didn't really impress of course in all the fun happened in the second rob Zagreb looked like they wanted to get back into the game. The football was unbelievable. The goals that they scored incredible the hat trick and it was just shocking to see the spurs side. Just go from trying to go from boring defensive to money's the game two then scurrying panicking and avenue not enough to get the result. An awful night for spurs on mean think of at the three europa league games. Obviously it was supposed resolve smell and there's money ninety three young. I was kinda thinking monday night.

Who Needs the Europa League Title Most?

"Here's your to win. The europa league manchester united installed his early favorites. Actually co-favorites with spurs english teams. One two three even arsenal getting a better odds to in the euro league van c milan. Let's focus in on those three english clubs specifically their managers. Craig i'll start with you. Which is three need to win the europa league. Most i suppose seventy one hundred in milan because the book is going through. That could be the only reason i passed. Thank josiah marines. When there's the most. Because i think he's the mine under most pressure. His league possession at moment stinks the team's performances have been pretty rotten in terms of on the eye on the country mile off the top four. At one point the talk was others team in the title race and so he needs to deliver something otherwise. He's under severe pressure. I mean you could say well attack. The does he's got cut behind them transition to ask no. I think he's pretty safe there and they talk for. There's no doubt about so. I actually think marinas the mon- needs it. The most stevie you agree they still got a shot at hardware in the league cup final. They got a shot at top six. Maybe an outside shot at top four spurs really. Need this most absolutely think so. Yeah arsenal. yeah we think point lead over you. He's he's got an f. e. cop behind them less than two months ago so he's fine creek said during transition marino. Another honda is is is not in my opinion going to be in the top four. That's why he was brought and it wasn't brought in to do anything else so it's important that he does produced. So we're because that will deflect away from what has jaw was and the premier league and unfortunately for him yes. He's a the problem is they'll position gsa city who nobody wants to face. So i'm one hundred percent we create. This is absolutely marino. And tom mark from the manchester united perspective. Just how important is this to jar. His record and cup. Tournaments is well documented over four in finals. Big without first trophy be. I think it needs to win one soon. Because it's now four years when united trophy on a long time and they always have the opportunity in the kaaba cup of one. One that need is more than tottenham because five years at the champions league. The asked really really the champions football. I it's sick of being semi-finalists are knocking on the door. They're not gonna win the primarily this season to trophies. This is man united. We're talking about. We're talking about the process itself alongside by munich real madrid barcelona as one of the biggest club in the world. The biggest clubs in the world win trophies and is now four years since one. United one one-stroke trophy with the minor the minor cops. Let's be honest. The league company europa league in two thousand seventeen. They haven't won a big trophy since whilst explosion retired. Let's be honest. The two thousand thirteen primarily because even fa co-ops and the von hall didn't really count towards the biggest trophy so united. Need over the start winning again. And i think social really needs it but if he doesn't win a trophy this season i don't think it'll be the end of their old firm. I think you'll still be there. But i do think the to kick on become this team is going to challenge for the majors. They have to win something. So craig no no i just think off the bucket marks point that yet yeah financially obstacle. But we're talking about modules marina for the reasons that steve and i say and and say well and it's a big f because it's not you know some good teams in there. They say it was a year in the league and we lost hurricane and we will see all these excuses. You'll save won the europa league a nuts champions league football because that's the carrot dangled for when the euro league note from a united perspective. As augie said you know when you're polite for them and their historical standpoint is neither here in the last good marino himself. He delivered second-place mandated. Emily he delivered the gop league undesirable cup. So they've done recently. They really need to be the primarily title at least go neck and neck all the way until publiz reasons you take a trophy as a manager and you would take if you united but really the dining a much.

They went three to two advanced. Four three on aggregate a bombing with a couple of goals. Kieran tierney As well jill's. I'll start with you. Just how big was this for arson to advance the round of sixteen in europa league the result of course and qualifying but also the fact that they came from behind. He's he's been very very rare season. I think he was only the second time where they went behind and then ended up winning again we against southampton in the league. The game saint. Mary's but apart from that every time they were behind every time they considered. I couldn't come back and win it so to do that logically would be huge tonight. Plus also the quantification the momentum before the game leicester on sunday and also of course the two goes for obama. Young and the to assists for psychiatry. And i think we need to find you. Were to qualify an amazing player. Bouquets in one thousand nine dong cossack is he. I think he's that best plass sevi- mono people say about me on gets the goals and they rely on. His goal is true. But i think when i watch young suck apply. I think he's got a lot look at his temperament. Look at the way he plays the game. You can tell. Light loves playing football. He's got smile on his face. He's a choose infectious at the training ground when he's playing but talent wise he's got a wonderful less or you can goes pass. Players phone can go either way. Turn the pace again. He works back. He's got a lot really. I mean he must be a manager's dream robbo arsenals best player. he's right up. Two games in the corrected goes for obama yang and that was the difference between the two sides been fieger. I thought place nice football today. But they had no cutting edge going forward whereas cutting edge liquid trying to break off sidelines. Saka was coming in it and those little round the corner obama gang trying to running behind whereas been fake. If all that good fly times just had no cutting edge shocker arsenal just getting it down today just but last questions about about soccer. Yes he in my mind. He is arsenal's best and most important and ask those third goal goal. That takes them to the next round sums it up one more the defender a couple of crossovers defended doesn't know whether he's going to go. Righto left come back onto onto left and picks a fight bullets. Who just onsides 'cause on maybe man because of his two goals headlines but but for me also is a vote soccer and so much of their good plea comes from from his unpredictability from just clever. He is on the ball and for me without question. That teams suffers most without without saka more than anybody else other

"Back so he start healing before the player touches him so therefore for me it's intentional From now do so. It's not a penalty Opinion divided on this one. At least when i looked online. And all the rinaldo fan boys gone wild. Would you think well. I'm not a fan boys. You just go in. But i would have given the penalty because the defender he's actually making. He's actually facing the wrong and impedes run out if we're not again we're not going down but there was still there. I'm going to give it a penalty on that occasion. Joel's robo so it was a pain so we'll bring it live on. Television straightway was a pen and then with the replays are still think it was.

Those can check rich rings right. We've seen that happen manchester united. That's right parenti. That bereft overton to the final whistle. Wet so I thought it was as well. I wouldn't say i will say this. In the in the reference defense he allowed a lot of physicality and this game more sudan obscene at any chuck busy game for quite some time. We've always made this point. That league games are often refereed very differently from champions league games to while i thought this was a penalty i thought. The referee allowed a lot to go all game long. Anybody next question about another penalty late in the match. The dortmund luc dionne got got pulled down in the box. That was penn. i didn't i. Didn't i didn't think he was getting to default. I don't think i look maybe second. Look one replay. I didn't think i. From what i show. I don't think the and that's the case if he's not getting there unless it's dangerous plea i i don't give it frank kitts via deserve a penalty late. Yeah it's for me a clear in the way that the defender doesn't even look at the ball and the only only tries to to grab diong and to make sure that he doesn't go to the ball so for me it's clear penalty bravo absolutely.

"An eye on arsenal and ben he. This one ended up possible. One one game played in rome. Rob what happened to arsenal today. They got a good response after the leading the goal but other than that a lot of chances. Very merry little Very well actually. Also for the first thirty minutes completely dominated the game. They played really good football. They from into the front areas really well but their final pulse and then finishing wasn't good enough obama. Yang missed a golden opportunity after after about half an hour where he could have just into the corner and miss the target completely. They made poor decisions in that final third but up to that point thought. The movie was good. The sort of a combination between the right hand side players saka and bellerini was coming in field but after that thirty minutes when the hadn't scored they started deteriorate. They didn't play quite so well and they got frustrated but they were still a better team than benfica jewels arsenal tenth in the league out of both domestic cups. We saw that the basically the exact same lineup. He did against leeds. How big is this tournament for arsenal. Think he'd choose. I think quantified there were there. Were with directly the side. I think they were quite lucky to be just one one and i expect them to qualify and then again it depends on the job but i think that could be really strong in this in this tournament and created the only way they can qualify for. The season is to win this. That there will be other big clubs and i don't know if they can go all the way that i think they will have a chance and clearly the fact that he played the team did against leeds last weekend especially three days before city clash the emirates on sunday shows you which is the priority otherwise you keep that team to play city. You don't play them on thursday because they're not going to get on sunday so clearly that shows you the mindset of does going into this game frank arsenal fans probably feeling great about obama yang after his performance on the weekend he gets the hattrick and then today at least three really clear chances and he couldn't convert one. Yeah exactly. we thought that he was back to you to its best where we know that he knows how to do and he didn't do it. He didn't produce at least really two clear. Chances to score and completely missed especially the first one is the target so that was very poor performance from him. Even if i really think like my two colleagues that also deserve a drill. Because i think we can talk about the penalty against them. I think he wasn't a penalty but going back to obama young. I want him to be more involved into the game of course finished in a better in a better school. You know all the goals that he can he can get school. Rob what's going. On with obama yang malted. He's movement was quite good. He kept on running in behind turned. Most of these runs quite well. He was planned on that off. Line on its arm you threaten in the back out to the left hand side but it was. He's finishing frank just said that was so poor. There was one in the second where he threw one v one with the goalkeeper and it shows a lack of confidence because he could have just passed into the corner and then he tried to turn it back across the defendant. He defended got back and got a block and the chance was wasted. So obama gangs not blaming full competence in the moment. I don't think he's quite a show. Is others movement. Today was quite good. Sixteen.

It's Ole Gone Wrong: Manchester United lose to Sheffield United

"United losing at home missing the chance to go top of the table defeated by bottom of the table. Sheffield united registering. Just second win of the season craig. I wanted to this happen. Possession but but really never trouble chef united gold out many times. Keep with enough to make that. Many saves chef united defended brilliantly. I mean phil. Jackie ohka failty. I think as robot the years bedtime and recent games is gone back to the tried and trusted in midfield which was from flake and norwood. Those guys have been up to save for parts of the season and that was the fulcrum of of their team last year. And in fact. I said i go back to basics here. This was the chef united. We saw last year scrapping and fighting and defend in trying to feed off scraps the other side and united was sloppy. I mean you look at the second goal it was. I think was go on ahead. So wasn't wasn't buck. I thank you boys was bought. Another joke guzman is so much time in the bulks on two occasions was bar and it was on the players within five yards new-look to and there were sloppy so when nine days doesn't have a sparkling game or russia doesn't have a sparkling game. This united say just lacks the guy that we saw from manchester city yesterday. How do you explain that. Defending the second goal. Steve is really weird. Well you just think in some ways when you play against a team league sheffield united. Who bottom of the league. You've pegged them back and you kind of you kind of think it's just going to happen. You're just going to go on and get the one up and so you drop certainly level of intensity because as far as quality it wasn't really there for united but the intensity was there to get equalizer and i think once they did that just a little drop. And that's what happens you know. Nobody takes the initiative. Nobody you know certainly usually when somebody has the ball at the feet in the box. You'd expect to not just one but two defenders could be gone in either thrown overboard in the line or just making a good solid challenge of get close enough. That didn't happen and that to me is just took a little bit easier after the equalizer thinking the all that to do is just see to score and we see today. Why manchester united win. The title. Worldwide tipped to win the league but craig was talking about. They had fantastic possession but mashes united. Can't handle possession and that's the probably you go. From beating liverpool liverpool keane had initiative. They went up and then scored. But i will also a respect scheffler united for their performance. I mean you could say. They deserve the window game because in the second half would it should be a pressure from manchester united at putting cavan on. There should make all kinds of efforts to get at least equalize. It didn't happen. I can't remember the chef. United goalkeeper had to make any big saves any big interceptions. Sometimes it came for crosses. So i think that that was mentioned uniting loosing on dreadful day of manchester united in the like marcial his buddy which is not even european europa league. Ins- it's down in the go.

It's just me and going over the the draw. This is not the normal show as I mentioned in the previous episode with the Champions League. My wife was not here to do this with me. Like I hope she would be she decided to run off take the kids shopping so she wouldn't have to do it cuz she knew I was going to ask but you guys are listen to the last episode already know this month. So I'm just going to go over this really quick another short up one the thing that's worse about the Europa League draw versus the Champions League draw is a there are more themes. There's 16 more teams and some of the teams have names that you unless you're a hardcore fan. You probably never heard of and there are some wage Teams this year. I'm going to do my best to pronounce all these teams correctly. I'm just going to go through another quick and I can tell you which countries are from you guys have the ability to look that up or whatever know. Why did that the Champions League episode but just going to go through this really quick. All right, my brief feeling on the Europa League. I actually like the Europa League a little bit more than the Champions League mainly because the group stage is bigger just like with the World Cup or any competition has a group stage. I just I love that part and I think it goes back to me, you know being a big fan of the National Football League in the US. The one thing about that is, you know, there's there's eight divisions. You don't only play teams in your division, but winning your division is extremely important issue you play each team in your division once at home and once on the road and winning your division helps you move on to the playoffs which can help you lead to the conference championships and ultimately the Superbowl Depending on how good you are how bad you are and I just love that. I don't know the Simplicity of it. You know, it's the same thing with the Champions League same thing with the Europa League. It's the same thing with the Copa America the Euros..

"The best sick with Ebola wait for you on of the He's going to be upset by bunny got. Guys on this show on the preview this game we were talking about the two teams I think it's pretty unanimous that Inter Milan had the better squad. I'll I'll start with you on this. What happened to their top two tonight I'm I know Lukaku gets the goal early on but he was quiet missed the one on one just before the game winner for severe loud. Don't Martinez. We just didn't hear from what happened to them. I'm. GonNa Leave. Penis alone for a second and I'm going to focus on the GEICO because. In this game, the only thing that I could think of is that if our friend and colleague Nicholas Wotton this game, he's yelling at the television. Crew. Because it is in be the sort of game that that that gives you the perception of what Lukaku can be an what he isn't what he could be an what he ends up being and and the truth is you see what Lukaku? In that I play he turns uses speed and strength, and he gets away from him and you think, yeah, that's it. He's GonNa take over this met, and then when the game is on, the balanced is to he's getting a weapon, the defender one be wanting to against the goalkeeper he misses that chance and so it's a two size of Lukaku and then to top it all off and beyond ball and which it, it's an unfortunate play it just so happens that it is Lukaku again so I'm sure that Steve, what's sitting at home those enjoying himself because it is indeed a validation for what he's been saying all along about for guy that will score. A bunch of goals but in key moments in key matches seems to come short maybe that that may be unfair. But the truth is from what we saw today that is exactly what it felt like and I go back to when this team was in Champions League earlier this season and they had an opportunity and they had to beat Barcelona be team from Barcelona that was and there were after chance after chance for Lukaku. On he was unable to do that. That's why they're in the euro belief finally, they make a run into this game and you think, ok, well, he's going to take over. Well, he did early on and ban it was the disappearance. That is this from lukaku perspective. Frankly, we being too harsh on new cochlear after all finishes the season with thirty four goals across all competitions tying a record set by Brazilian Ronaldo. Back in nine, hundred, ninety eight. Surely we can give him some applause for efforts as well. We'll have to give him some credit but comparing clue Kaku with. Is Offending in factor in. The former benign was maybe the best striker in the world overall and and And Look at who has extremes strengths and give the performance. That's when we we saw it in in the semifinal and like we saw Serena semifinal and we saw after to mute when he takes on on decals but I would have been tickled callous I would have leave. Lukaku facing keeper because he can put the ball not in the top corner based on the corner. Flag because we know that is not that guy would not really precise. So he has the power, but it can be very clumsy. I mean the young goal that he gives Israel unfortunately as as early said, but he's typically what Cacak do any of the strikers. Would I let the ball go? No, he tries to kick the ball out and goes to his own. I mean he is a fantastic fantastic guy. A lover football gives hundred percent even more to football but we have to judge lukaku according to what he can show us and sometimes it's good sometimes fantastic. But most of the time is quite average. Jewels. The goals certainly helped make this great final soda chippiness that combativeness between the two teams early in the week, we were kind of talking about whether the League final meant anything to the teams that were still in it. No doubt after this match. To write for different reasons. This deck or petition anyway to six times now is pretty credible. I. Think. Volunteer. Your content is curse. The curse of this you've been competition chomping day before with your banters style always denied him. And now he read it. One this your makeup, a simple. For him and for the people like us who who judges, where maybe would have been a big difference and I think again, e come and again he's disappointed at any. Responsibility on what he wants mole on the UPC to anybody to actually winsome. On that note, should he have made it subs earlier he didn't make I put Alexi Sanchez into the seventy eighth he waited until. Inter Milan were down by goal. You knew at the first half they weren't playing well, I'll let should he have made those changes earlier Christian Erickson.

"Other instances. In the Pool Henderson Schmeichal continues to be consistent for largely top under the table I think that that's standard has dropped from comparing this probable to see. Goalkeepers years goal. It's it's a different game You know maybe we can keep us up to play off from me back comfortably the to the ball of their speed and distribution. It's a totally different game. This problem better suited to this in ten years ago and you could probably bite splits. Practice this attained. Story, but I think I think if the goalkeeper's the level of the goalkeeper decline Because, we were talking about that Sir just before we. Is the level of defense defense a decline as well, and that goes with the kipper. Keeper. He's not protected by the defenders knew well at some point. Is going, to. Feign I saw it's not only the goalkeeper's faulty Nicholson goal is also the defense defense. Defense. Crawler Stephanie your sort of extra time frank these questions about strengthening the Defence A. Shamiya. Shamikh Frank. Do you think the premium priced premier league clubs pave English defendants? Is Worth it say for example? The two left Chelsea and looking at so dear John Rail. Madrid twenty, million pounds bench. She'll well more like eighty million. Same Age both talented. Is the difference worth it I guess. I'm not sure I understood the question. Do I think the Premier League clubs white for? Oh Why you always been a problem so he's been a problem. And we see that from outside the country when you see of. English clubs paying a lot for English place how it's been like that when we see Maguire being faked like crazy but we saw. Some decades ago seems same same things about all the players in a different position. So it's always been like I don't know why I can't really explain why I think nobody works like eighty million nobody was like fifty million nobody was like twenty millions but he's the offer, the demands and and. I think the play that you name and the amount of money that the bin Ospel. Them is just normal for defender and you shouldn't be more than that conferring to WHO's to strike. Guy The. Can I interject here let me just say I will always speaking to a Former premier league managers some years ago and a to do off the record. Conversation, so we'll we was, but he made a point to me. In seeing that you pay a premium for English players. Because if an English player takes a step up. Doesn't make it's. Absolutely, they moved from. From westbound. Manchester United and they don't make that much as united. Before it falls on the player for not being able to handle that step up in class or whether it's moving from the championship Premier League or whatever it may be. With foreign players. Player doesn't adapt to his new team on the new new league new level. The Ford falls on the manager. So you find managers more willing to pay that premium because it sheds them some responsibility of the successional to this point. A player. I interesting perspective but I've never considered myself. Gaby is it is it particularly English focal? I think to some degree. There's always a small premium to be paid for domestic players because obviously there settled in the league and they speak the language and whatnot I think it's especially March England I think. Shock shockers mate made an excellent point. Just, the reaction it always falls on the manager in that situation, I think those big points. And the guys mentioned potential will and then reload. Chill will. It's Lester He just needs to drive an hour and fifteen minutes away to London where they speak the same language. Same Currency Seems Food English manager. You're kind of insulated against some of the risks of something else cropping up. So I think that part of the premium, but I think the other thing is if you will move to Chelsea and he's terrible and he just doesn't work out history shows that if you're talented English player. You come up short and a pig club they'll just sell you I mean maybe not recoup all the money but recouped big chunk of the money to another club usually a west hand back in the day was a Sunderland or stove or West Brom we've seen this happen time and time again. It's much more difficult with foreign players. In fact, many times a foreign players you have to sell them back to the country where the king put them somewhere else in Europe. If you're moving to a bigger club at Chelsea for example, you're going to be on the sort of wages that smaller clubs aren't. Going to be able to afford. So that's further. I. You your transfer value when the club tried to sell you back. So there's a much bigger downside risk when it comes to foreign players, which which explains the premium now is chill well, four times as good as regular. I suspect probably not. But it goes somewhat. This is definitely an extra time for specialty questions because we have franken defense. Your own gold feedback. Gab. Guess what's coming your way financial fair play. How is it possible that Chelsea bringing? So many pleasure AH, breaching F Verna Zayat possibly have a new goalkeeper you defend this question mark. How they doing? Well. So they haven't signed. Howard's the new defender of the new goalkeeper yet. So the answer is we simply don't know. I think one thing to bear in mind with an angel. And in fact, the way things..

"Obviously finished the season very very poorly although I was pretty obvious to me that in the last game, they won the title they tanked, but there's a ton of pressure on muddied Saturday. Those rumors about him going if he screws us up still persist I think he's GonNa feel them I think the players arguing The payers WanNa make this count. Rinaldo wants to make this count. He is there he was signed. You know the club committed three hundred, seventy odd million dollars to him over four years or signing him over four years to win the champions e and you look at this and you say, you know what I beat Leon and then I've got a straight knockout elimination path to the final and I'm not going to have. To many other opportunities likes us and I think I don't think he's GonNa take much in terms of motivation. I. Think the main question is, are they actually good enough for? Are they going to show the same insecurities that they showed and city off for much of the season? Great stuff generally will continue the countdown towards these four round of sixteen second thanks to on Friday onto on Saturday on the next edition. FC. Here, we've got to run the role over some of the latest transfer rumblings activity gab everyone's by now seeing the front football story that Renaldo was considering a move to PSG. We understand it's old news and it was something supposedly the case that was pre pandemic. Just. Wonder what the reaction is being to the story in Italy itself Gab. It's it's not even that I mean the stories all based on the interview. He gave with Kerry Marschall from from France football. I think it was way back in October something like that. Story seems to be guy. Kinda hypothesizing that you know maybe Chris would be happier elsewhere not that he goes out of his way saying you know well, he's not unhappy, but he's not happy either I mean this is frankly a whole bunch of absolute waffle. I'm not saying this because I think he necessarily wants to be this or he's become a fan I I just think it's it's purely filling pages at the stage I. Don't think there's any orchestration behind it for Mendez's camp engineering and move anything like that I don't think there's any there's any G. plan behind it yeah, would be great. To play with name Imbaba but you know the reality is. You got to balance the books. Everybody is the balanced book. So I think the reactions been been extremely dismissive bronzes camp. Made it clear that this is this is old stuff at somebody's basic interpretation of what Rinaldo mindset was. Back in October, which is which is eight or nine months ago. So I don't think there's anything more. Than that frankly something a lot more real is vivianne potentially going across London following in the footsteps of. Petty Jacket David Louise moved from from. Chelsea to Oslo talking about a three year deal D. makes perfect sense. US It's going to get Muktar Ian off their books don't. It's amazing. The relationship retreated between these two cubs Peter Check goes up. Then he comes back to Chelsea Davi Louise is there and Look I think you're talking about a guy in a free transfer who who finished the season very, very strong. I think he's As I understand it from those numbers that you see in the paper you know he is taking a pay cut. What I would say is to me this suggests something else is going on. At arsenal and wonder if this negotiation isn't some kind of album a young insurance, you do not want to be a situation where. You've got album. Tied down to a long term contract lock whose contract expires in two, thousand, twenty two tied down to a long term contract. And William as well. Not when you've got a Martinelli and Sokka and then pippen all these guys that you're trying to push it. Just not a good. It's a prudent situation to be in. So I'm wondering are pushing this along almost like a plan B alternative. If if they don't a deal inaba youngest, they move them otherwise to me adding another guy of Williams age on a three year deal makes almost zero cents. Supposedly Basler under an intimate Cami era interested parties looking on that situation one deal that does seem to be done Nathan. Gab To. Manchester City police issuing, championship bomber but go he just said he forty one what what's your assessment? This deal for city? I it's it's interesting because forty one million for for a guy like. been very solid Primarily, player I think is in a bad deal even in the current climate he is a left footed central defender whose versatile who's also played life back in the past he can play midfield I think he's very much a pet type player in that vein, of course. Best Defender report is also left footed defender people made a big deal here. The fact that Chelsea had the right to to match that offer, but they somehow weren't. I don't think that's such a big deal just because Chelsea passed up on him doesn't mean it's a bad deal for city I think they've added depth. I still expect them to add another central defender of before the end of the transfer we. Talking of finally got versatile defenders. DABID Alabama by Munich he's made continual noises in in recent months about perhaps his future being away from unique. Do you see that? I don't know that he's made noises Adrian. He has a year left on his contract. So if you're a buyer Munich to Putin, thing to do is you extended now otherwise you risk lease losing him on a free at the end of the season David? All about isn't that old for my money he's one of the.

"That surge of adrenaline yes. European competition is Robert Levin. Dusky will be worth a little later continuing his exclusive talk with Alexis Nunez ahead of the return of the Champions League befall that though the you wrote the League GonNa kick started Woke Him Frank Leboeuf and Gabrielle McCarty to the show and let's start gents with Manchester. United. We knew it was going to be a full maller for them completing. To win against L. A. They already one five nil of course in Australia and the enough I like all very comfortable for them. Much changed team gap only gonNA SOCIA-. So I guess it begs the big question. How seriously do you think Manchester United should be taking the Europa League. Should we taking it extremely seriously I mean you know it's one thing when people say well, we don't take this. So seriously because you know we want and we WANNA qualify for the Champions League by League or we're competing for a title. Or whatever But this is completely different This is this is three more games. This is now a knockout competition going forward from the quarterfinal stage it's a chance to to win European silverware. And it's something that Manchester United should be doing. She'll be trying to do and I have no doubt. They will try to do I. I. Still Think there's a lot of teams in this and I think get this stage. It absolutely does matter they're going to be playing Copenhagen in the quarterfinals fact, the question has risen really because of the Premier League restarting the fundamental ninety we back in the champions, he'll be given a thirty day break for whenever this current season ends for them. Of course, that could result in some fixture congestion. In the rope. League. Camp spot of the of what you want to do when you professional player I remember being with the national team being in a big club like Chelsea having like fifteen days off in summer and no no days off during winters. When I wanted because I wanted to be occupied by my passion and as the a wants, of course, he starring, of course, you have to think sleep eat drink football but that's Just what we are were born for. So so I think it's not real problem for the players I think they want to win the Europe Listrik Chelsea he's. Won The title last year and. have. Very. I won the Cup Cup which is A. Competition which doesn't exist anymore but I'm so proud of having that in my resume because it's it's it's a final competition and you win. You want to achieve something in your in your career and what's A stands at the end of the carrier is the titles that you want and I'm Xu mentioned signage players are up for winning Europe League. Of course, he's GonNa Chipper st but he's still European. Competition. So I'm sure everybody is really tuned in for for the title. So does all you're going to go full tilt gap Do. You understand why these questions have arisen given that thirty daybreak. No. Sounds something like you know they might sorta talk if you're a complete little sort of little Englander navel-gazing, I mean you. But whatever's raise this issue leaving aside the financial aspect, the prestige aspect, the commercial aspect I don't see how it's how it's even a question. Of course you want to go and and when silverware when European silverware. If you WANNA make the point. Well, it didn't do Marino any good yet. That was a different situation. I think there's a lot to be said to win major silverware with this setup with. In Europe a united and yeah of course, they're gonNA go all out what about into gab inter getting through relatively comfortably in the end two nil against the top of your did miss a penalty some shaky moments second. Antonio Conte's men. Getting over the line reaching the quarter-final how important is it's just talked about how important is mentioned how important minded Tonio Kante especially given what's happened in the last few days and his rant I. Think you said it there I mean in light of the rain is way of turning the screws and. And jacking up the pressure like nobody else so. If injured, do well in the Europa League and an advance far in this competition gone through is going to see it as like I, look I scared the Bejesus out of my bosses. I acted kind of. kind of mad on television, but it was all an act and it worked and the team developed segement. and. So next time they'll listen to me. Now will it work out the way I don't know but it's obvious inter made a lot of progress in in the. First season I think looking back that there will have been disappointed that they couldn't make that last step and I think the opening is a big part of it, and that's why for example, you know they went out of their way to work out a deal with. United four Alexis Sanchez who otherwise United I, think quite rightly said. Well look. I. Mean if you don't sign on my right or if we don't reach a deal, he's coming back to the united. He's not playing for you guys in Europe elite instead they've worked it out the announcement coming on on Thursday and. I think it just shows. You know how important this is to enter. into to me to the Rangers all by Leiva Kuzin in that quarter final.

You one of the harshest critics so all. He's proved you wrong, isn't he? Host you? Listen the. You, you can't see that. Qualifying for the champions. League is not success. For, all the Because as You know ended a day. I think the biggest and the main reason why the option because when transfer marquette. Bought Bruno Fernandes without that piece of business. This this would happen so listen. He always asked to coach the team and he obviously had a hand and say Bruno Fernandes Oh yeah as I said. It's success. I'm not convinced that he can take them from from. Champions League qualifies to actually vying for the title against Liverpool in city I still. The way way off and I still think they have to say more players, but yes, but all they get into the champions lease as a success. But he's had plenty of time. Your United Stat Dome. That now. All you early I mean they close form then they all Liverpool, which is incredible thirty two from Bouma. Thirty three away from Liverpool, and it's not the right time in because I think that the well getting into jump and say those incredible finish I agree with Stevie. Bruno Fernandes doesn't come in. At this, all thing is that. Is Jason for Non Stop the season? Why did they wait until John? Rudy Sunan done I will never ever. No nothing deserves credit ease. That's big name. Players go shifted the dynamic inside the dressing room. He's might young is made them hungrier. There have been assigned to watch is not too many egos at the football club anymore, and you have a job on the summer. Trying to convince big plans like will stay on. And then chartwell tracked maybe three or four plans to try and give him so titled Till Next Season Way to they need to add to the squad don. I was still like say them. With a recognized number nine I get the argument where people think that Mason Green was going to lead the line, and maybe the could bring in some more to plan the rights on side because I'm not convinced marcial. Yet again I think the such a good player net. He's not consistent enough. And Watching Higher Maguire today and Victor Lindelof as a pair. I mean less than without James Madison. Pereira without Soyeoun shoe without some of their very best players, another about that was missing volley at Indiana Joe Coast to center offs problems time after time after time, and this under-strength less decide so I would like to see, and if they all going to try and compete again can get closer to the city. Liverpool in my opinion, need Weltklasse Center

Roger Bennett (Men In Blazers) on the Return of the Premier League

"We Win Stadium you will be at home. I can promise you will feel you support. Stay safe. We are still with you and. You'll never walk alone. That was liberal F. C manager Jergen KLOPP in a message released yesterday. That will bring a tear, not just the eyes of his supporters. The dare I say anyone who cares about the most popular sports league in the world. That's right folks. After a three-month hiatus. The English Premier League is back today. Roger Bennett from men in blazers fills us in on these frantic few remaining weeks. So grab a pint and US as sub optimal tour of English soccer. I'm sorry, English football. I mean it comes. It's Wednesday. June seventeenth. This is ESPN daily. Presented by marathon. Roger! Kim's. Are you relieved? Your any skin daily and not my NFL pod, talking about your beloved quarterback Mitch Trubisky You Know God Love Mitch. trubisky is an incredible pressure to be knowing that your whole life is just destined to pan out to become the answer to a trivia question in about ten years, who was taken ahead of Deshaun Watson Patrick Mahomes. Roger Bennett is suffering bears fan. He's also the CO host of men in Blazers on the NBC. Sports Network and the men in Blazers podcast by just braced for him to end up with the green. Bay Packers, leading them on a fourth quarter drive two feet, my beloved Chicago Bears, and I can't wait for that movement. They'll probably deserve it. And we're not talking about bears football today. The wait is over the English premier league. The most Popular Sports League in the world is back after a one hundred day hiatus due to the coronavirus pandemic Roger I'm sure you've been getting your fix from Bundesliga but I have to imagine the return of English. Soccer is hitting a little different for you. One hundred days feels like one hundred years to be candid. I've been staring at squirrels running up trees in the park, and feeling the adrenaline burst of a run through midfield, watching raindrops charge down my window and feeling just an incredible wing-play into play of missed from the primarily, but yes, it's back today with its global ratings I mean in Britain for much of Europe for much of the rest of the world outside of the United States, it's kind of a seismic as the NFL and the NBA rolled into with the Pantheon of heroes and villains to moments of glorious ecstasy, searing dispath fuse with dodgy haircuts snack tattoos. One hundred days off. When are going to have ninety two games scattered almost daily over the next couple of weeks. It's coming back because we love it because we miss it. It's coming back for. Hard news commercial reasons ultimately to an economic decision. It's going to come back and ghost game situation where it's fabulous. It's going to be different. The lack of an audience will have an impact on the football. We watched, but most importantly it is going to be good enough. It's GonNa. Be Great enough to connect us to a ruling global conversation and that's ultimately I think. Think we will miss about sports as our calling them. Ghost Games I hadn't heard that got left the Germans. They have a name for everything. Lay. They Call Them Guy Bela. And that is what they will be. Sam Darnold knows a thing or two about those back to English premier league, so we hit positive with most of the season done with exception of Liverpool they're. They're still to be decided. The top half of the table. Seven teams vying for five spots determine who will qualify for Champions League and Europa League which for those who don't know are the midseason European tournaments to be held next year.

"The marquee match up around sixteen in the Champions League remedied versus to city a game. That brings together two of the favorite solitaire for this competition. Match in so many ways. Rob Man City winning two one away at the Bernabeu. GimMe Gimme before. We get into the details of peptic. Cetera is your kind of overall overriding line of this brilliant match. That football at this level Rob Thais level starts then comes down to detail to huge clubs whilst put too many might feel a favorite for this competition and we have to talk about a pet going to his tactical library and pulling out of volume and looking through the pages and deciding what he was going to go and how he was going to go and and what they did but I also thought this was a important night for for Manchester City to send a message to the likes of UEFA and everybody else around you. They're not done yet. They may or may not be in this competition next season but when they play like that with the tactical occupant of the money in charge. They are the team to beat in this competition. I think we had our discussions whether Lepore was the is a key gala to to the maybe William is competition. I still think on any given night.

"Addition of ESPN AFC. I'm Dan Thomas Alley Reynaud and Stevie Nichols. You now will be with US shortly as we kick things off in the League also against Olympiakos. What a dramatic ending to the game but also without one win in Greece. They didn't they make it through. However Olympia with council out in the second half of this game. See say with the go after avenue for what that would take us into extra-time a brilliant goal from Obama fantastic scissor-kick would make one one on the night two one on aggregate. That would be enough but then arriving in the last minute of extra time would score. That would see Olympia Costco through on the away. Goals robot away the late John Through family. And who you put your house on scoring. How did he puts it wide. Also out of the euro per league. We'll talk to the boys in the studio. And let's stop. Shall we Juliana wrong? Jules we know a big heart piece. Your heart isn't ps some of reserved for arsenal gutted. I think it's a tough nut to take forward the the author funds the of the way happened. Obviously with the the late Gore fall got goose and die by Obama young in the last minute of added time of extra time but also let's be honest. It was a poor performance. I think the attitude was no rights. They looked to be complacent. That no Sean Tiger. For the first one seventy five minutes of that game so in the end is the harsh defeat any Sahara eliminatation but also on the night tonight. There was just off the game too much. Who Do you blame more Stevia Pammy late missile David Lewis and he's defending? I think I think at the end of the day we'll mistakes as players and the players led from the mistakes and what dovid Louise didn't do. He didn't learn from his mistake with the first goal. Because you're in zone regardless of the opposition when the ball comes in your area you have to attack the ball. He didn't do it and didn't learn because the bulls flung again at the end of the game and he didn't attack it so at at an absolutely avid louise. It's an ongoing issue. Without defendants said pieces is a problem area for them and Wyoming end score is a great goal and even after all the struggles that you've had in this game he's gray goal and now you're through. All you have to see is the last two minutes of the match. And then that's it you're going to the next round. It wasn't pretty. It was it was. It must have been learning experience for us. And that's the way that I would have spun this whole story. But you're not able to defend properly said peace and then see you guys later take. Here's the other thing. I was here about Arsenal for whatever reason they thought that after winning the first game the first late one nothing that it was it was all done. That's the way they approach is game as if they had already advanced. The truth of the matter is that where arsenal is right now. They're not good enough to be complacent they're not good enough to like energy. They're not good enough to just be a team that is going to show up and you'll say now we just going to play around on. We'll see our way through to the next round. They're not good enough to be doing that. The players know that but the problem is that they cannot find any sort of consistency with their level of play. One day they look good the next day. They don't look so good one they look okay then the next day. Look what the one thing that they've been consistent about is poor defending set pieces Steve. I'll tell ya after the game. Lambasting his defense four goals conceded in last two matches from set pieces. Surely this is something you can work on in the training ground isn't it? I know that we talked about the personnel. The arsenal have and. It's not good enough but surely this is something you can actually physically help with. On a day to day train. You can work on the train and field all day every day seven days a week but if you have players who don't get it and they'll tell you they get but then they step on the field and continue to make the same mistakes and that's exactly what are still have been doing for the last two or three seasons defensively so the comes at time and I've been seeing all year long. The comes a time when it's not about the tactics or the coach. A suburb and Avid Louise. In particular has shown time and time again. He's making mistakes as a set of bike and it's cost and his team and until there's a change until Louise's moved that position and a better players and as you asked me you can walk all day long on an Infield but if you've got players who can't do the job isn't changing Joe's big picture. How big is this defeat for our so considering you up an argument was a great chance to qualify for the Champions League? Yes huge blow. Because of that obviously because that was maybe the easiest way because they can still finish fifth save city are buying for next. Season's Champions League they only four points behind but you would fancy that competition. So that's used blows so she's reforming ties went because he's a proper step back of why you've been trying to do and the resort. That been okay since he took over. There's been some improvement on the on. The field on the field going forward especially attacking wise defensively still issues and he has an address them well enough at the moment and avenue for him. It will be a setback and I think this issue tonight. Psychologically they go again on Monday night in the ETHICA. That's a hell of a tricky game away from home against a team that would have nothing to lose in a cup game in a hosted environments against the team that is playing really well in the lower leagues but also a team that would love that kept Gammon love trying to put more pressure on us on especially after tonight so the next few games will be very important for the where artists are trying to get his plays back on track for Monday. Night's game and taking on an dunks beloved Portsmouth for. Let's just confirm shall we? Some of the other games LOT DRAMA ACROSS EUROPE TODAY. Very good for the visitors.

She's gonna group by group. <hes> let you know how i feel about each each team that you know you know some a little bit history or how each team qualified for the europa league and we'll go from their hearts verse going to start off with group. A group is a severe from spain qualified because they were six in la liga actually really five time winners of the rope league their last win coming in the two thousand fifteen sixteen version of the competition where they actually defeated liverpool last season. They only made it to the round of sixteen before they lost slavia prague next. We have up well. <hes> there are team from cyprus <hes> they qualified because they lost in the champions league playoff <hes> in the past. They've only made past the group stage once in two thousand sixteen in seventeen version of the europa league where they made it to the round of sixteen next. We have quarterback now. I'm gonna have to apologize. College is now because there's a lot of teams in this that are from countries with leagues that i don't follow so if i mispronounce something i truly truly apologize of of quarterback there from azerbaijan they qualified through the playoff round <hes> and they've never ever gone beyond the group stage <hes> next we we have f ninety one do lung bliss how you pronounce it there from luxembourg last year they became the first team from in luxembourg to ever qualify for the group stage of any european competition champions league or rope elite and now this year they're back in the europa elite group stage group b we have dynamo kiev from the ukraine <hes> they qualified after losing the third round of the champions league <hes> playoff last made to the round of sixteen before losing to the eventual champions chelsea next. We have copenhagen. They're from denmark <hes> in the two thousand eight two thousand nine and the two thousand seventeen two thousand eighteen europa league they advance beyond the group station the first round the round of thirty two <hes> next from sweden. We have malmoe <hes> last year. They made it to the round around thirty two but they were defeated by the eventual champions of chelsea and lastly in group b. We have lugano from from switzerland <hes> they qualify. They finished third in the swiss super league last year. <hes> this'll be the second time in the europa league group stage but unfortunately only for them. They've never ever progressed past the group. Stage are onto group. See we have another team from switzerland f._c. Basel <hes> they qualified because they lost in the third qualifying round for the champions league portion <hes> they were semi finalists for this in two thousand twelve and two thousand thirteen eighteen and quarterfinalists in two thousand thirteen two thousand fourteen <hes> next we have f._c. Krasnodar from russia they lost in the champions champions league playoff qualify for the robot league last season. They made it to the round of sixteen before losing to lindsey our next. We have guitar from spain. They qualified 'cause they finish fifth in la liga last year <hes> in two thousand seven two thousand eight europa league they lost in the quarterfinals to bar munich on away goals and last. We have trabzonspor from turkey <hes> they've not been in the ripley groups. They've since the two thousand fourteen two thousand fifteen tournament but they just added daniel sturridge. I'm so i believe it's highly likely <hes> they're. They're probably gonna make it out of the group. <hes> we'll see you know it's always tough to predict spicy in the europa europa the league's actually tougher than the champions league because you know some of these teams are truly dark horses that a lot of people don't know about <hes> yeah yeah. That's group c so group. D we have sporting from portugal <hes> they qualified because they won the toss portugal the portuguese cup <hes> this is the third time in the europa league and the best finish that they've ever had was in the two thousand four two thousand five version where they were runners up to <hes> c. The s. k. a. moscow next from the netherlands. We have p._s._v. <hes>. They won the europa league longtime ago actually before i was born the one thousand nine hundred seventy seven seventy eight season. They want it <hes> recently. They've been in the champions league there last time in the group stage though was two thousand awesome fourteen fifteen where they invested around a thirty two our next we have rosenberg from norway <hes> they lost in the champions league playoff and in all the time. They've been in the europa league. They've never made it past the group stage and last in group d we have less from austria <hes> this is their first time in the europa league group stage so be interested to see how they do. Don't know not much about teams from austria. <hes> one of the things is tough about the europa league is that after the group stage the the third place teams from each of the groups in the champions league actually transfer into the round thirty two for the aropa league so you have some in some top notch teams that weren't in the euro group stage that are coming into the tournament after the group stages over so that's why so many teams they they they make it through the group stage they make around two and then they end up playing with third place team like chelsea. Can you imagine playing chelsea after coming you you advanced out of your group in the europa league against teams that are similar to you and then all of a sudden you have to play chelsea because they got booted from the champions. Really you know i it's pretty wild all right. I'm gonna take a quick break and then go straight into group..

2019-2020 Premier League Odds: Will Manchester City take the title?

"Twenty thousand nine hundred thousand twenty english premier league is officially underway last year we saw historically close title race liverpool still in pursuit of its first premier league title finished just one point behind repeat pete champions manchester city though the ripple did when the champions league title over my beloved tottenham heading into this new season liverpool and city remained the favorites and we're expecting acting another close fight. Here's steve nicol on e._s._p._n. F._c. making the case for man city but yes city still have a stronger squad in liverpool. You could say that they've actually got strong since last year and considering they won the title this to lose and liverpool's to try and take extra step neil. What does our model say about. The primarily grace is mandy the favorite again they are indeed so we give them a a sixty one percent chance of winning. They are the highest rated team. According to the soccer power index they have the best offense in <hes> the ep l. and also the best defense so all of that kind of adds up to to a shockingly high probability of winning. We really think that there's almost no chance that they finished any lower than third or really. Even i mean second. Can they have a like. I said sixty one percent chance of finishing first and then a twenty four percent chance of finishing second so not much room for anything below that but then you know liverpool is relatively close to them in terms of sti so man city has a ninety four point four s._p. That's on a zero one hundred scale and then liverpool the second best team has a ninety two point four so that's kind of a small gap when you consider that the third team tottenham sarah's team and nominally my team mm-hmm has an s._p._a. Of eighty five point three so massive difference in drop off between number two and number three <hes> but still liverpool has a just a twenty-seven percent chance in our model of of actually winning the e._p._l. What did the first weekend of games or the friendly community shield match up between these teams. It's a week ago. Tell us about what to expect. From this revelry in these opening match ups. I mean it is also sort of an open question as to how much we can learn about single soccer matches and i'm always amazed even when we get into the world cup that first sport was so little scoring that the better team tends to win with a good amount of frequency well we're actually in a talk later in the show in the rabbit hole about baseball upsets <hes> and and it's a game baseball is a game with more scoring than soccer and yet according to all the models and just if you sort of look at the the results of games the favorites favorites and soccer tend to win far more often than they do <hes> in baseball and so. I don't know why that is necessarily. I think there's a lot of things things going on about who is controlling soccer game that are not picked up in the scoreline. Necessarily right and advance stats are trying to do that work work. We talk about possession or you know. Further things like expected goals expected assists progressive passes. All of those things that are happening in a soccer are game that are you know sort of. We don't think about them in terms of the scoreline but they're all helping to tell the story so you know these two teams james city and liverpool are the best of those things too so that probably goes a long way to why we have them rated so highly why soccer power index thanks so much of them and they really are. They're returning their very good teams. From last year with slight tweaks slight improvements that you know should get them pretty far. One would think inc beyond the top two teams. There's an interesting dynamic among what we've typically considered the top tier in the ep all those that have been part of the big six for the past couple of beers and then the middle tier teams so our model which uses that sti showed a big gap going into the season between city and liverpool and chelsea and tottenham him that was a gap of about seven points neil said earlier but then there's another big gap of about five points to that next batch of teams manchester united and arsenal now everton which is often just on the outside looking in at the big six is only one point behind arsenal and all and then lester and wolverhampton just a couple of points further back so the golfs there really are between the top two and everybody else right but then three and four four and then this group that could all compete for for the fifth and sixth spots but also the third and fourth spots so you could see some a real shakeup shakeup in the table for the first time in a while we haven't had anyone outside of the current big six finish among the top six spots since lesser one at all in two thousand sixteen which of course was a shock collar bone. They didn't subtle just getting sex. They were like let's just win at all. This season could be even though i think some people are thinking i would sort of boring in city liverpool same thing. It's just a repeat of last year. There could be some really interesting. Things happen in the world of the top soccer teams. I think that's sorta. Uh shows how amazing it was that lester one in two thousand sixteen everyone points to that five thousand one odds they had which is a little misleading. They've really didn't have a one in five thousand chance of winning in a twenty team league. It was just a terrible line and the terrible line was a reflection of the public opinion as all odds and all lines are a reflection of the public opinion. Don't forget that that that no one else outside of this elite group could win that league so why not make the line five thousand one try to get some people the bed on it and they were burned so in many ways it kept that people on us and of course it's obviously gone back to the same handful of teams winning but just showing that it was possible i think was very big for the sport in terms of giving giving fans hope and giving everyone hope which will all all hopes will be diminished by october but at least right now the dream is alive because the lester her yeah well when you think about the history of the premier league which started with the nine thousand nine hundred ninety three season there have been only six winners. It's man united man city arsenal chelsea leicester blackburn and that's it nobody else in all those years and so and they have not been many teams that have even gone into a season thinking. They had a great chance so lesser winning. I think did a huge thing for the league. Now someone what else needs to actually win again someone different come on spurs. The beauty of it is that there are all these like competitions within the bigger competition trying to make it to the level. Were you qualify for europa. League champions league trying to just stay up in the primary league is is often more exciting later in the year so it isn't isn't just like you know another sport where winning is everything. There's many rewards existing in the league which will sort of add excitement in lieu of the playoffs and realistic chance of actually winning the championship and and <hes> having your hopes of doing that at all dashed. You know extremely early into the season season. He can settle some consolation tournaments. I mean what's wrong with that. I think well this goes to my theory about really all sports. There's no shame in rooting for a team that can't win at all and there are lots of other things along the way that makes sports fun. My college football team is not going to win at all but i'm still gonna enjoy the season and be happy when they knock someone off. Whatever and you are going to watch those five thirty eight. <hes> college football playoff odds like a hawk hawk note to me every single week when they go up or down <hes> not that's connected to that's not connected to an actual belief. They're actually going to make the playoff. It's more like well look. It's my team and they're doing well. They're not gonna win. Percent percent chance of making the playoffs. They were on the list nehal all right. I think we can leave that

Alan Smith with the volley and that was quite apartment team as well as this'll now. Mean three seasons without Champions League football for arsenal. First time they've gone that long since ninety five through ninety eight so we can sit here and talk about the transfer ban on Chelsea. But if you're talking about arsenal bringing in high caliber high quality talent to replace some of these defenders that aren't just that just aren't good enough anymore. Are those guys going to aside that's not competing in Champions League? It's gonna be hard for them to just lower guys in by saying, hey, we're arsenal. Like does that work. I don't know. I don't know was essentially, if Newcastle become the new man city. Now you've got to contend with Sony questions, really. They're really who becomes. New new castle. It's a great quest Crystal Palace. I dunno West Ham. I don't know. I'm no Donal. So there you go. That's the Europa league final. There's still one more European final discuss. We will do that in great detail tomorrow on the podcast Liverpool and Tottenham but congrats to Chelsea four one winners. They hoist the rope league trophy. We're gonna take a very quick break. When we come back, it's really just the end here, red cards, man-of-the-match, which is all of us phone what you mean. But normally like there's this and that and then we get to the red cards man of the match. So we've got that coming up. I feel like I said before I think, I think people are going to enjoy these don't go anywhere. Back now caught offside JJ one thing we didn't mention when we were talking about the Europa league final, because I do believe we did a fine job of keeping it as much to the soccer as we possibly could. Yeah. But we all know what the storylines were going in. It was the Armenia situation may Qatari, and it was the, the low figures of tickets that were being handed out to the two clubs. So in the end what did you think of the of the attendance of how it looked, I haven't seen an actual number yet. But the lower bowl, there seemed to be a lot of green seats unquestionably. No question about the noise was weird. The was no singing, though. So here I do have the figure you've. Yeah. So the official attendance for the match was fifty one thousand three hundred seventy. It's a stadium that seats just under sixty nine thousand that's a lot of empty seats as a lot of empty seats. Yeah. It didn't really I, I mean, I suppose the arsenal players would I believe they played their earlier in Europa league qualifying or group stage or whatever against Kyra back said that the pitch had improved unbelievably. So for European final. We had a nice surface to play on the end. I believe UEFA has said that this venue will remain on the docket for twenty twenty. Yeah.
