"That being said, as I said, you need to highlight that is a red card all day every day. My thing is this. And to Frank's point, if this is an improvement on Chelsea, what we've seen of jealousy of lead or bit have been a way for a few days, if that's an improvement, I don't know where to start with with Chelsea. Yes, the city game they were very, very bad. But let's be honest. Let's be honest. This was, this was not something that you take. I don't think you take anything positive from. The city game was very, very bad. But this game against Fulham, I don't think you take anything positive from. If the most positive thing you can say is, they would, as bad, then once again, I'm sorry. And listen, and as much as I've sat here and I've tried to make an argument for Graham Potter, that and gab's right is not all his own doing. But I am, and I know city game is very bad. I am really struggling to see Chelsea improve and hold that reflects in any way positively on grandpa. It's quite something Frank, isn't it? Because as Shaq can't allude to, Fulham beating Chelsea is a big story. Normally, but it's not a big story now because of what precedes it, we're used to it. That's the level where Chelsea are at the moment. Yeah, that's what it is. At that side, because fullam didn't beat Chelsea since 2006, I think it is. And you're right. 6 or 7 in the league where Charles is tenth or it's a normal result, which is absolutely a nightmare. When you consider he said Derby and Jesse, I've been on the top of that side of London for decades. I think Jesse played better than Fulham. Even if shakha doesn't think it's an improvement, really you should have seen the game against city. But we try to find and try to be as positive as we can, you know, because really, we are going back to the basics with Chelsea. We saw nothing lately and we see a little bit of better from that game.

"Make sure he's at the side of the field, trying to dictate the play. And then people might look at him and say, he's at least he's trying to do something. So let's bring what Potter sees his future as back up then, Craig, because this is what he says about his role at Chelsea. He said this completely different ownership than there was. This is hard for people to get their heads around because Chelsea for 20 years has been one thing and now all of a sudden it's different. The reason for me to take the job was because you've got a chance to shape a club that is in a massive transitional period. There's a sense of reassurance there it seems from Graham Potter Craig. Oh yeah. Oh yeah. And until results continue to take a downward spiral and find some and they already have started and everybody knows when the funds Tom, the manager gets at the players gets it and then ownership gets it directors get it. As we call them and when they're getting, they have to look for a scapegoat and guess what? The scapegoat is the manager. So it has to be by himself ownership change is fine. You know, we don't know exactly what this strategy is. We know the cell continued to sponge money the same as the previous ownership, but we don't know what the higher end firing strategy is. What we don't know is the results continue in this manner. Thought bully will have to make a decision. There is no doubt about it. There is no painting great future for the next 18 months, 24 months, if they continue to huddle down as Premier League, right? One woman, I believe it is. I mean, it's just not acceptable. And we can talk about long-term visions and we can talk about transfer strategy. But you have to buy yourself enough results to keep yourself in the job because when those funds really come when they really turn and bully at central bridge and has premium seats and they're all Tom and roan and their hammer them and their 90 minutes and manager hem the ownership, the strategy, trust me. He will make they will make a decision. He will make a decision. Their heads never okay because they own the football club. Players heads don't roll because they have long-term contracts and they are assets. The only head always rogues when results can not be turned around is the manager. So Graham Porter and I like him and I think he's got a lot of people respect him in the game for what he's done. But he's gone in half days. Robert said, get players out there that by him and off chain to get the guys back and Tom this big ship around. By contrast, Pep Guardiola should be sleeping well tonight. It doesn't seem to matter which players he uses. It turns out, all right for him. Well, yes. But they're not playing by themselves out on the field. And so we just established that Chelsea were very poor. Regardless, when you look at the depth of Manchester City and some of the things that they did today and passing sequences and movement with the ball and movement without the ball, things that they haven't done regularly over the last few

"When you talk about a team that is short on talent because of the injuries, at the very least, what you want to see from the group is fight. Is commitment. Some sort of character. Some sort of willingness to close down spaces and get tied to people and at the very least, you know what? We are going to be tough to beat. In the end, we may be short on talent. We may be sure because we are just unable to cover down all the spaces, but we're going to fight. And we're going to make it so very difficult for Manchester City and frustrate Manchester City. That was not the case. It was a training session after 20 minutes by Manchester City. And so you think about what the second half was, it was no more than indeed a training session. We're just passing the ball around and Chelsea were just happy to just see the ball being passed around. That, I think, is something that you can certainly point a finger at grandpa and say, look, I understand that this guys are not available. But the fight of the team, the mindset, the character of the group, the willingness to make it difficult for Manchester City and at the very least make it challenge. And that is an attitude thing. And that is something that reflects poorly on the players, but certainly reflects very poorly on grand Potter himself. Craig, what can actually be done in this transfer window, right? Now to help turn things around for Chelsea, obviously they've already spent a lot of money. It's already a big squad. What can they do? Well, there's all he said. They have brought in some recruitment specialists and so how much input he has gone to get remains to be seen, January is predominantly a difficult time to get real quality. Because the real qualities playing, I don't know Enzo Fernández, his name has been mentioned, but he's played a Champions League club and that's usually more difficult hence the fee and the buyout clause to get these guys away. And the help spent bag already is, as you said, and you can see from the graphics. So it's difficult to know what can you strategy to go on to use this January if any. Let me tell you about the long term approach ish of this consortium so far. Scott is going to approach the approach to buying players. One guy who wasn't there today about me on who came off the bench on first day and then was taken off because he was so bad, didn't finish the game, was not in Manchester today and we don't believe he was injured, was brought in by the previous manager Thomas turkel because there were desperate, so Todd bowling and let him do that, then sat Thomas tickle, not too long after, leaving Graham Potter with another guy who really is just picking up a wage and it's not going to bail him out when he's in his most needed time. So that's not exactly telling you there's a cohesive strategy going forward in terms of transfers. It's a worrying time that's club. What can he do immediately then Stewart with Fulham coming up to turn things around? Well, first of all, he's got a picky specie when he's got to make sure he sticks with a tactic and gets the players on side with what they're trying to do because at the moment they go from games again. And of course he's got injuries, but it doesn't mean to say you have to change all the tactics. You just fit players in. And at the moment, I don't think the players quite know what they should be doing. I think they're not quite sure of the shape. They're not quite sure exactly what the manager is expecting for them. They're not getting too much guidance from the side of the field, while the game's going on, which you sometimes need. And I go to grand Potter again. I always say, when you're losing, that's when a manager has to come to the side of the field, and he's got to start directing operations. He's got to show not passion, but some understanding that I've got to get after the team. I've got to make them do this. I've got to make them close the pool down. It's all very well doing all that when you're winning, which lots of managers do. And then when they start losing again in a bit of sick, they go and sit back down. So he's got a front up right from the start and make sure he's at the side of the field, trying to dictate the play. And then people might look at him and say, he's at least he's trying to do something. So let's bring what Potter sees his future as back up then, Craig, because this is what he says about his role at Chelsea. He said this completely different ownership than there was. This is hard for people to get their heads around because

"You know, and we see all those players struggling because there is no idea there is no plans whatsoever from anybody and the only one we can have a plan is mister Potter because it at the head of the team. It's not mister bolly is nobody from the ball. He's not off with the press. He can't even be the players. He has to be mister Potter. But if he can not say anything, of course, you're going to go for a big mess. If you can not buy the player he wants and he's forced to play those players, the board signs, it's become a big mess, and it is what we have right now. And as Craig said, you buy players, you put everybody, you get to almost still players from other clubs to make sure that you get all the players, but you don't know what to do with it. So it's a big mess. I'm gonna say I'm from, I think this is going awry very quickly. When you hear it in her, I thought, and I do think he's a good manager with lots of experience, but he's very pragmatic, he's very pragmatic in his approach, and he completely the boys touched about putting his fingerprint on it. He completely changed. It was a full 360 in terms of how they played the game. It was bright and a team that survived and been hard to beat. The then became a state under Porter that were playing some of the best football in the Premier League. Yeah, the likes and goals up front. And that was a big problem for them. But he completely changed the mindset of these players and how they approached the game with some recruitment as well. I just don't think he's going to get that and be able to do it. It's hard to teach old dogs new tricks. And he stepped in and he said, and the other side is, we just don't know. We know under Abramovich, it was hiring and firing. We just don't know what this consultant we're going to do. I really sympathize with Potter and the position. He's found himself in. And to mark's point, I think he's gone in there and phoned things to be a whole lot worse than he thought. Or maybe he went and thinking that he would have some time to turn things around as he did with Brighton. But what you've seen with Chelsea and the bully is Craig use the term scattergun approach. And it's exactly this January so far and certainly this pursuit of mudrick seems to be falling on from what you saw in the summer. From the time you see somebody else, go after a player, know all of a sudden Chelsea through their heart and not seem ring. And it doesn't seem to be any thought around what we need or what we're going to do or plays that we're going to go after. Somebody else is identified a good player, so therefore we should get ourselves involved. And we all wondered what bully would be like once he took over this club. And it seems like he's trying to be Roman Abramovich part two, but without the experience of hiring and firing, and without the buffer of success. At club level, to so the fans could buy into whatever it is you're doing or more to the point football and football managers know what they're signing up for. So it's in total disarray for Chelsea. I know you have a very good manager in Graham Potter under immense pressure. He hasn't had a transfer window yet. Oh, this is his first. We had three days into Potter, having a transfer window and addressing any of his needs with Chelsea. How was that the way to run a football club? I am not at all sure, and I sympathize for one of the brightest minds in English management. And just what any under pressure manager would want this week is back to back meetings with Manchester City market. These meetings going to prove decisive for his future. Well, I think if the losing is sitting in the league, that puts some really out of the top four race. I mean, considering how man united upon the way right now. And the FAQs, the FA cups out of the attitude, that's another composition cloves off. So if they're out of the top four race, they're out of the FA Cup. They're at the leak up our ready. They've got to win the Champions League to get back in the Champions League that season. So that's massive pressure. And top bowl is saying it's a different kind of Chelsea, Potter will get time to change things, but adult, I don't buy that. I think if they miss out on the champions leagues and differ scenario altogether and I think you can have a plan but if you miss out on the Champions League, you have to suppose in experience it has to look at managers that have got to record and I think it's an experiment that looks like it's failing because grandpa hasn't been given the tools that he needs. He's just been given a blank check, but it's the honor that spending the money, not the manager. It's going to be interesting to see what happens in this transfer window. You can keep up to date with all of it as we say goodbye to Mark Ogden, but you can go on over and check out our transfer talk on the

"Like 5 points between what, 12th and 20th, the margins are razor thin. You have to have every element pulling in the right direction. And behind the scenes, everything have so many incredible staff members who work there forever and they are remarkable. And I feel for them because they are being let down terribly by their own app by their boards complicity. I mean the border reflection of the structure of the organization. And it's very hard to Dodge relegation when there is a meltdown at the heart of the organization. So that's where I am. And I do believe with this fan base who cares so deeply who gives so much who travel and are so passionate about the team. I do fear this could get very toxic, very, very, very quickly. And then it comes a question, who would want to come to Everton football club under that construct? Which is why Graham Potter would never, whatever happens to him, and I believe that he's going to get plenty of time at Chelsea football club. But my God, who would want to come to Everton under these circumstances, that's really you are essentially stepping into an incredibly dire free falling crisis man that a job of crisis management. By the way, I don't just think about this as a manager. I turned that feeling back whenever my kids are like, dad, dad, do you think Lewandowski might want to come to Everton in the transfer, you know, we need a striker to their minds who are like, maybe I'm bappy. He could cure. Maybe we'll get Griezmann. And I'm like, oh my God. Who would want to come to Everton football club? In this moment. And the answer to that is incredible. That's really where my heart becomes so heavy and so dark and I try and remind myself again as we reminded last night anyone who watched Monday Night Football is the only sport. That it's not that important. It's not life. But for now, here's what I'm going to say and humiliating yes. I'll say to you because this is all fan fiction and this is all shipping of wonder and this is essentially Andrew millington publicly creating his case for hope, which is the opposite of my approach, but I don't want to deny it to you. I do know how I spoke to a police officer once from the murder squad who told me that when human beings are about to be shot from close range, they will hold out anything to try and stop the bullet in the last second. They'll hold out a piece of paper in front of them, anything. Even if it has no scientific ability to stop a bullet, the magical piece of paper and I do believe, and you will link to the notion the notion that Graham Potter may come to Everton football club is your magical piece of paper and I'm not going to deny that to you in this moment. We have talked a lot. It is a joy to be here on this night of mostly darkness. I'm not going to lie. And I want to finish with a glimmer of joy in my own life, raising a shot of jagermeister, this bolt of human emotion in a shot glass to the tulane, green wave, your cotton ball champion tulane green wave, honestly, still don't know what I witnessed yesterday. It was like USC won the game and then stopped playing tulane are not great at football, but they are tenacious, slight Everton at their best in the olden days. And their victory really was a wonder of human perseverance, proper football school, game changing victory for the school for its profile through its applications, so happy for that place. And for all drinking a jager bomb last night down at the boot, it's weak side this. Well, until tonight anyway, Everton winning one one at city two lane winning the cotton bowl and the bears doing all they can to hold on to the number two draft pick. All these things is why I love sports. Just a reminder, we'll be back in on Anton tomorrow and Thursday 5 p.m. Eastern Time after Manchester City against Chelsea. Also, you may have seen the announcement on our social, but we're about to spend some time with Tyler Adams again this week for a new episode of Tyler Adams route to the cut powered by Volkswagen.

"Home. Only to find his parents have turned his old bedroom into a gym. The Brighton turned Chelsea bar suffered his first loss in his new gig at the hands of his former employer and in relatively spectacular style the seagulls and their crowd we should say just completely took Chelsea apart from the off year goals from Leandro trossard, Pascal gross, as well as two Chelsea own goals from Loftus cheek and challah but do the damage all credit to Roberto de zerbi, who gets his first Premier League win over his future employer on the south coast and Graham Potter's first loss as a Chelsea manager. Yeah, and in the 7 weeks Instagram Potter ditch Brighton, he not only has had an extreme fashion makeover which less than looking a little bit like a young Kenneth Branagh. He's not lost in that time. And the bright in the told you not to worry about we get to win in his absence to this return really a taste of what Ted Lasso season three is going to feel like when they goes back to Richmond or West Ham boo west dam. This return, as we soon found out, it was pretty much how that scene a big lebowski where the duke comes home to find the goons peeing on this rug and from the off. The brain fans just all over kuka Rea buoy them. It was like boo in a care pair or an ewok and Chelsea looked, well, from the off data, they didn't look like themselves. Those weird kits. Are they as close as we're going to get to seeing football players all over there playing in the newt? Yeah, it was sort of was it oatmeal? Was it beige? Was it cream? I think they probably were designed and they thought they were gold, but it was a horrendous strip. It was so weird whenever it was a long shot. Honestly, look, they're all running round in shame in their buff. And just football, Oliver, you're Olivier Giroud with a loved it. What I look nude, great. I love it. But most of them are like, let them really want to and why are we doing it? Has Todd bowly done some kind of a deal with skims, revenue lines. That's when it honestly looks like. And the first half, the pattern of play was shocking to witness Brighton so quick to the ball. So up for it, charging down the wide area is pressuring whenever Chelsea in possession, just that Angola can tell us midfield was bullied, bullied by the seagulls, Thiago Silva and he cleared two headers off the line, like Raven seconds of the opening whistle, he's so right. 5 minutes in. Trossard ball stuck to his feet initially, managed to dig it out round the keeper dance dance dance a little man and slap the ball deliriously into the corner. Bonus points for humiliating kuka Rea on the line. Astonishing. You know, Chelsea just being taken apart, particularly on that on that side of the field, on their right side. And definitely missing re James, I think you mentioned in golo kante, which I think is valid. I think missing Rhys James, but trying to adjust to this back three from Graham Potter, this sort of this wing back situation with all these players playing out of position. And just on this day, with the atmosphere in this ground and the previous that has felt by a lot of obviously these players against their manager against the departing kuka Raya, they just bought it so strong and Chelsea were just stunned from the open. It all happened so quickly. It reminded me of the time the Scottish comedian Jerry sadowitz opened his set at the Montreal comedy festival with the line hello moose fuckers and had someone jump on stage and knock him out cold. Brighton we're essentially that heckler and their fans reveled in the moment chanting Potter Potter what's the score and you're just a crap brake and who value Albion and I'm paraphrasing there. The team ran rampant raz and pulisic at wingback for Chelsea is great when Potter's team are able to dominate but my God with just marsh, delighting and destroying cuca Rea down the Flank politic exposed time and time again, not tracking back on his side and it would get worse for Chelsea, ruble Loftus cheap doctor corner into his own net, 50 minutes in, you're getting sacked in the morning, ran out and the crowd Brighton, who's called just four times at the dessert, skewing twice inside 15 against Potter. I mean, how did you understand it is, is Graham Potter just like a MagSafe charger, you just need to be proximate to propel Brighton back to full energy. Yeah, definitely. I mean, he said, in three and a half years at Brighton, he'd never felt the atmosphere. In that ground, like it was that day. And I think, look, Potter has had a fantastic start at Chelsea. It's definitely they were in real trouble in the Champions League when he came in and now these successive victories have sort of propelled them to the top of that table and qualification into the last 16. I think that there is, you know, obviously there are teams who are dealing with it really well, like Manchester City. Who are able to sort of win midweek and then figure out a way or they're able to get their results mid week and then able to win at the weekend. But it's taking its toll on this squad. Of course and I think you notch this one up to a special situation. I'm not so alarmed. It was so bad. It was almost so poor the performance and Brighton was so good that, yes, do not like watching Chelsea lose in that manner, but they'll have to lose a few more for me to start thinking, okay, this is a permanent issue. Chelsea did counter raz charge forward, set up Conor Gallagher, hit the ball straight at Sanchez. Who did it come out to? Even as it bounced out, I was like, please do not let this go in. The vicinity, a Cristiano pulisic, open goal, but he slapped it wide, an agony, and that is new in a long must brave new Twitter world. I just knew everyone would be fair and balanced about politics blown chance, right? David, not that Gallagher really had the horror miss, right? At coal Brad 16, one of the many level headed commenters plus it gets an opportunity. What are the worst players on the pitch? Face it, folks. He's Freddie ado. Dave out. How many books did Freddie do right again? He didn't zero. And then I wrote a book as far as I know. I don't know. Yeah, they're a fundamentalist as we've said before. There are propolis and anti politic fundamentalists on both sides who are equally insane. The middle ground. This was not CP. CP's finest performance in the Chelsea shirt. I don't think anybody could argue it, but it was, he was the last person who was responsible for this result. I do think Conor Gallagher, by the way, was the one Chelsea player who covered himself in some credit in this game. I thought he was, I thought he was superb. But yeah, I wouldn't overreact to that, miss. Yeah, Brighton then skimmed down the left through the space a proper wing back, which Christian is not would have been Brighton who could barely school last month, suddenly had the ability to make Chelsea do their bidding for them. Chelsea, you remember, and the Potter had only conceded four times himself. I mean, David, was this Brighton experiencing the rare old mother belt? Yeah, that's interesting. It's the only legit. That's really good. We've said countless times on this show that there are few more motivational human emotions in the world that propeller team more than spite and that I think is what ultimately led to this overwhelming performance Graham Potter experiencing the kind of return home. We've only ever seen in the deer hunter. It's a bit like in Rudy when dude returns home for Christmas and his brother's date in his girlfriend, second half caper injured mendy and Chelsea flicker back to life fine goal, Conor Gallagher split in

"Towards the end of the transfer window which led him to lose the veterans. And perhaps most significantly of all, if you, if you Google image, two Humboldt, you will find not a single photograph of the two men together. And that to me is like the symbol of all of it. That's the significant breakdown, and the hard thing was building made himself director of football interim. And it's easy to Dodge your owner if he's just an owner. But when he injects himself as your partner, your strategic thought partner and you are not really talking to him or not seeing a to I, you're already on thin ice before the results start to tanker. Two things is you didn't seem to have particularly done him in as a Lukaku debacle, huge financial loss. And perhaps the most American thing ever was reportedly super hot on Ronaldo wisely didn't want him, but it left a sour taste, you know, if you lose a few games after that and you are gone, but they vote top ball. Get me Ronaldo. That is what would worry me the most as a Chelsea fan. That is definitely in the territory of tell me you have not watched a game of football before without telling me you've never watched football before. Yeah, we should say about the photographs rods that that's not in that's not a flattering picture for Burnley next Tommy Tuchel. He's so skinny. He's so gaunt and burly, you know, looks like he enjoys a drink, enjoy some food, enjoys a baggy shirt. It just wouldn't look good. So I can see why Burley wouldn't want his picture to take. Dude loves to be phased out with everybody. A photo of him and the queen, or the coffin, circling around right now. It's a shock. Yeah, he loves his photo being taken. There's a striking photo that you sent me this morning of him and Graham Potter and somebody else from clear Lake in the photo and his smiling taking ownership at that whole situation. By the way, if you've not seen it, it's Graham Potter holding up the Chelsea shirt photo. That's what it is by Todd Burley. And by the way, first takeaway, Graham Potter and we'll get to Potter in a minute. Definitely up to his image. He got his beard shaved with precision at the barbers. I mean, that is a micro trim that he didn't. He didn't have Dan south at Brighton, or he may have just got his manscaping out and he's doing this down below. He just thought he'd touch up. But Bill, you got to describe him, Devo, because he's grinning like a madman in the fetus. Wearing his Chelsea hat. I mean, I really hope that it's alive. I really hope that it's a live picture, because if it's a live picture, I press down on it a few times, hoping it was going to move. Partly because I thought that Potter was going to be blinking as a cry for help in the way that military hostages do. It just looked the poor man looked uncomfortable and terrified in that situation. But yeah. I think he's terrified because Billy's doing like the steep and the thing of wearing the two shirts at the same time, which is which is hauntingly confusing. But he's also wearing a baseball cap and they vote me wondered, was it just a hat that he happened to have? Was it? Was it too close hat? Was bully wearing two calls hat. Like in the medieval age, you would take the severed head of your enemy and put it on the spike. Yeah. It is possible. I've given it a lot of thought. I'm looking at the photo my text from you. Because I feel like I wasn't prepared to quite do the deep analysis that you want me to do on the picture. Also like his hair that, you know, under the hat, it's the wings. He loves it. He's got three or four chins under there that seem to be growing with the time. He's got not only the hat. He's also got the Chelsea lapel pin. On there, you're right. He's got the Henley. It looks like a Henley underneath the blue baggy shirt. I'm pretty sure that's the same blue baggy shirt that he was wearing before and a plaid blazer. I mean, there is just a lot going on. There's little layers. The symbolic layers is the blood on the rim of the hat. That's why I can't zoom in enough to find out because I think he's sending us a signal. I really, really. Looking again at Graham Potter, you're right, he has, it's very manicured. I'm not actually sure that that's Graham Potter. He looks, I don't remember grandpa being that tall, number one. Remember, we saw him when we went to Manchester on the visit Britain stuff and he was in the lobby because they were going to say that Manchester City needs to seem like a slightly chubby, like a sort of a sort of a lower level university prof, which he sort of was when he was curve as an assistant coach, I think, for British universe. Listen, your Alma mater leads. This is what I want to say about him when we get to the grand Potter piece. We did meet him. We're over in visit Britain. We're standing at a Manchester hotel. It was quite a nice Manchester hotel visit Britain put us up in it and nice Manchester hotels. The bar scene is lively. It's full of like and dangerous. Yeah, it's 16 year old kids who are dressed up in the dolce and Guevara, just they're going a bit bonkers for it. It was like, it was like a scene out of Scarface and for reasons I still don't understand Brighton and hoove Albion were staying at that hotel because they were playing city. Where you choose that hotel. I mean, it was like putting yourself in in like the Vegas and Manchester City. And we're hanging out there. It's vaguely terrifying. And the elevator is open. And I walked the elevator, green bloody Potter. I think he'd been manager maybe for a month or two, and he wasn't just walking around the lobby. He was walking around the lobby in his Brighton tracksuit, and he wasn't just walking around in his Bryant drag two. It was one of those footballing ones. He had the giant GP, he transferred on the side, as if he was like, if he had a, if he had a huge neon sign over him saying, I am a Premier League manager. He couldn't have been more glaringly obvious. Apart from he's in a place where everyone in the bar just wants to get hammered or laid or get into a fight. One of those three things, I don't think they really mattered what. But I don't know if no one knew who he was, such as no one cared, he was like walking around desperate to be recognized and failing and so I just stopped and started chatting to him and he's such a decent, lovely man. He's so he was so bloody. Happy to have some company on the road and to avoid the offerings in the Japanese Mexican fusion restaurant that was like the hottest thing in Manchester at the time. Yes, how can we get 16 year olds to come and spend the huge amount of money in neck down lagers, Japanese Mexican fusion. It's the future. So that is Graham Potter. We will get to him, but I do need to let you eulogize to call big picture, certainly the last football man at Chelsea, hundred days

"Of Queen Elizabeth II, the Premier League has postponed this coming weekend's round of fixtures as a mark of respect. We can now welcome Julian Laurent to tell us more about this. Jules, what can you tell us about how the decision was actually made to postpone the weekend's matches? Yes, we are the statement this morning. In England, half 11 it was, I think, for the primary to announce, we have just said that there will be no football matches this weekend to pay tribute to the queen to the late queen to respect in respect. It was a decision taken by the Premier League. In itself, the government said that if they wanted the games could have happened and could have taken on, there was enough policing. There was enough resources for policing and everything. The royal family didn't object too much as well as anything too. So it was clearly a decision taken by the primary by the clubs which is respectable, of course, you can understand why there's a few fans who I think would have liked to have gone to the games and would have paid their own tribute to the queen had they gone to the matches. He also asked the question about when will those games being played? Of course, in a very, very tight schedule, certainly until the new year. And then there's also the possibility that next weekend games will be also postponed, but this time because the policing could be a problem an issue because we know that the funeral will probably happen next Monday and that obviously the police all around the country will be committed to the funeral of the queen, so then in that case, there wouldn't be able to be a football matches. So this potentially two weekends in a row with no problematic matches, but certainly for this weekend for now, officially, there will be enough football in England. Thanks, Joel. Well, let's take a look at how things do stand in the Premier League table right now. When action does return, we'll be seeing the Graham Potter get a grain Potter era get underway, Chelsea, the team he overtakes a currently in 6 as you can see in the table and they are coming off that surprise loss to dinamo Zagreb in the Champions League. We'll bring in native and newer now to talk about this too. But I will start with you, Craig. How is Graham Potter going to fix this team? Depends how broken you think it is? I mean, that's a difficult question. I don't know what he's going to do exactly with the personnel. It has a strike and now an Obama young that was the signing of Thomas Tuchel, ironically at the end. Before, it has the personnel for everybody's to chop and change and obviously there's the latest scenario involving the death of the queen as know through the postponements and potential for the postponements we don't know. It's going to give them a little bit more time for these players to work on the training ground. But look, it's going to take him a little while to get the tip stamp has authority on this side. I'm super I'm super happy for him. Here's a guy who went out most people know the story couldn't get a job decent job in England or in Britain when over at Scandinavia did a great job coaching over there with a very small club, got their opportunity at bright and off the back of a very pragmatic approach from Chris hughton, one that didn't get their support as excited, but generally kind of got the job done.

"Hey roger, I'm Robert, a Manchester City supporter out of Kansas City. Our OSC site is the press penny and Waldo. Come on out. My question is, at the rate, Chelsea go through managers. Is this more of a loan and an 18 months Brighton can just have them back? Thanks. Have a great day. Robert. Oh, Kansas City. Oklahoma Joe's had loved me some of those right now. Enter Graham Potter. And the first question is, why would he take this job? Has he not watched season one of Game of Thrones? Does he not know what happened to Ned stark? I mean, what a cautionary tale. That was, you do a provincial job in a dedicated, meaningful fashion should never take a leap to become the king's and never do it. It can only end in one way with your neck on the chopping block and Chelsea is King's Landing for Graham Potter, but why would he do it? I can think of at least one $40 million a year reason for him to step up and take the Chelsea roll, but Miguel Delaney wrote a piece that had encouraged you to find out we tweeted it out. It was in this morning's newsletter. He wrote about the plan for Chelsea going forward and there is a blueprint. They want to walk a different path than other big clubs who and if this is top bull these ideas, this is not wrong. Who simply reheat the same old big managers in Mourinho's Carlo Ancelotti's your pochettino's and build these aims to do something different. It's the partner Potter who both is a human being and as a football tactician is incredibly progressive. Going to partner in with a brilliant quote hopefully. Director of football who Potter himself will help choose the dynamic duo, they'll create a long-term strategy for a bold plan full innovative future for Chelsea football club, and will it work? Who knows? Look, there's so much to admire about Potter. He is a brilliant man, a tactician. A personnel motivator. Above all these shins a deeply empathetic leader and his rise from oster sons in Sweden, where is that? It's nowhere to the Pinnacle of English football has been truly earned through grind through innovation and a willingness to embrace different ideas and to stand there. In England where they do not take difference easily or lightly and be reasonably different because their own gent and there's always an unknown in any move like this, can a regional bank manager produce unprecedented growth in the fourth quarter in a backwater branch. Make that leap to CEO can agendas work with self motivated, hungry young footballers who is given the opportunity to lead ego driven superstars who can't remember how many lambos they even own. And also balance the Premier League load with a side order of Champions League, can a gent who's used to love and patience, succeed at that Shark Tank, that trigger happy Shark Tank that is Stamford Bridge. Where anything other than victory is defeat. And does Burley have any idea of what he's doing at all? Let's remember in every regard football has a habit of making a fool out of all of us. Let's wait and see. Next question. Hey, Raj. Familyman right in hove, I'll be in fan calling from a town in the French Alps. Originally from St. Paul Minnesota. I began supporting my beloved Siegel during the Chris hughton years of championship, covertly watching matches on my laptop and law school. Over the years, I've experienced the joy of promotion, the butt clenching high wire act of rail allegation. And the clubs are record top flight 9th place finish last year. Two weeks ago, I took my parents to the AmEx to see the clinical strangulation of the American badger complete with a full water bottle spike from Jesse marsh. And finally convinced my 67 year old father to support Brighton and not my brother's side arsenal. I had just begun to dream of a way days in Prague and Copenhagen. I bet your arm offer Albania. Now, with today's news that our one true talisman genius tactician and man manager Graham Potter is likely heading to the supreme mess that is Chelsea. I find myself horribly deflated during prematurely the loss of something that I never actually had I'm sure there's a German word for that. On the one hand, I didn't fall in love with Brighton because I had dreams of success. On the other, don't we, eagles fans, old and new with club was on the brink of oblivion, less than 25 years ago, deserve a brief thorough ride more than Chelsea. My question is this. In this arrow of hedge fund managers and petrol state owners should supporters of clubs like Brighton ever allow themselves to dream or are we doing ourselves? Because when it does somehow start to exceed your wildest hopes, you simply place the target on your back and hasten your own demise. Courage. I could certainly use them right now. Sam, you beautiful human being. I ate for you. I eat for all Brighton fans. I mean, who is talking about the brain funds right now? You have soared so high. You have touched the clouds. And then you've had your wings stolen from you, even before they could melt in the sun. That is bloody cruel and football is cruel. It's sick. Modern football. You know, I was thinking about Leicester City yesterday and their champion season and the joy that that brought to fans all over the world and rather it brought you everywhere, apart from the boardrooms of the big 6 where they must have had conference calls to discuss how they can make sure that kind of fun. That kind of dream, that kind of possibility could never happen again in certain evil laughter there. No fun league. And the funny thing is, there is a food chain. So Sam, whomever you take, whoever your next manager comes on, the team you prize in from is going to feel the same pain as you do, but be even less heard from. So spare a thought for poor bodo glimp fans, if you will, because amongst the names favored, yet Andre postage lugus of Celtic. You Thomas Frank's your potch is your Bros is jetty knutson, the 53 year old manager of Rory Smith European night's favorite Norwegian side near the attic circle, bodo glint, and nonsense is an innovator, a genius, a pathfinder very much like Graham Potter and whatever he does near the Arctic circle. Can it work in the English Premier League? Who knows? But the bright and brain trust is smart and data driven and strategic and I do believe Sam is going to be happy days for you to come up the seagulls. Let's have a blast of your song. Sussex by the sea.

"I'm definitely not going to Frank on that question. You didn't get the answer you wanted. You know somebody else. Going for it. I'm going to give you the answer. I'm going to start Benzema. I'm going to bench live under ski and I'm going to set Alan because I'm going to get lots of money. Like that I'm going to buy a good players around the Benzema. There will be. Use at the Bowen left a trailing leg knowing what he was doing on mendy, which you think is a foul. What about when goalkeepers come up for a punch and purposely take out the nearby player knowing that the referee will not call a foul? Is it the same thing? You know, roughly supposed to call a foul. It's a fault. Every referee doesn't call the father. That's, again, that's a referee mistake. So to that exactly like that, they're gross. Back in all day, 'cause we keep talking about this back in our day and what boy did back in our day would never be a fall back in our day. Keepers would go up for crosses and just drill in the sight of players. Because they knew that you need coming up with a natural positive jump in and they could get away with it. You wouldn't. You absolutely would not. But you don't see that in today's game. I goalkeepers do not do not instigate that kind of contact. Anymore because it's not a part of the game. So to the question, just as boys was a foul, if a goalkeeper does that, it should be called a fall. We had one incident just a few weeks ago, who was it? I goalkeeper came out and absolutely nearly knocked somebody's head off and refuge didn't call for some strange reason. We all said there was a fall. We all said it was a fall and it should have been a penalty, but for some reason it wasn't given. And this is the same situation. I was laughing the other day you guys talking about the goalkeepers bowls getting taken and Nick and kicked. 'cause I could see it at my head. Goal is to go get the ball. Oh yeah. Morning. That was a footy show. All right, for the guys, did you ever have a teammate who

"Think they are looking after him. They are giving him time. They are starting giving more options, more minutes because they don't want to happen but they happen last year. They rush him to stop playing. And now that they got options with Rafi and the melee, I think it's very important that the team, the first one needs to understand that it's going to take time to get back to a 200% business and of course when you have played like graffiti and then billet, you're going to use those moments to shine. And I think it's done in a couple of times in some of the games, but also for the gameplay also as a replacement of Lewandowski as a default where he played there also quite often. So I think that athenia and the belly are going to steal their two players at chubby is going to use the most and then the other ones are going to be rotating in depending on the games.

"Play with the kind of tempo that you would expect or you've seen from them of late and that's it. Nothing really to it to fall normal. You're not going to have to rewatch it. Put it that way. Okay, but I shouldn't some of these players be trying to prove themselves to the new manager Stevie. You have expected money from them. I don't think. I don't think you can see that they weren't trying to do well. I just think that right now united for me is not about open attacking football. It seems to be kind of, let's just be competitive. Let's be solid. Let's, you know, we'll be working on some things. The heights, he's gone for it. It seems to be a little contrived. And a little too much thinking going on. You know, you can look at Klopp's rock and roll football and you can look at the opposite side of let's just make sure that we're compact and we're doing the things we're trying to do and there's nothing entertaining about it. There's nothing exciting about it. And it's hard to point the finger at ten hag and complain about that considering where the bean and the performances of your question will keep. I mean, the only people. The only place where I thought had anything to prove, all defenders. And I honestly don't think Manchester United without would buy the toilet back. I don't think the hair was left exposed. I can't write no I can't think of a seat that he had to make. Outside of the back four, you know, who are we talking here? Erickson, he's got nothing to prove. Casimir. Right, okay. He's not being able to get into these Manchester United to start Lana, but we are talking about Casimir here. He's got nothing to prove. And then a young or very aging attack from Manchester United, I just don't think that there was there was a lot to look for or be critical of in all honesty. Frank, it was a tough call that went against him now on that penalty, wasn't it? Obviously it was David Silva shot. It seemed to come up off the knee and onto the elbow of E sandro Martinez, who was turning away from the ball at the time. Yeah, it's exactly. I think it's a hard decision and I wouldn't have never given a penalty because lisandro Martin goes to block the ball, of course he dies in a way, you know, to make himself a little bit bigger, but to the ball hit his thighs first and then his elbow and on top of its chat when he is hit by the ball chakra Silva is only two years away. So there is no time to react and take your hands off before the bolt hits you. So it's so hard decision because it's not, it doesn't make his body bigger bigger than Dani is. It shouldn't have been a penalty to go back to your question. I think what I saw the most, I was, I was waiting to see the players were not really involved in the Premier League since the beginning of the student. How they will react in the game when they start Ronaldo Casimir Maguire, Lindelof, and I didn't see much. Maybe my Goya was the only one who tried, but the three others I was quite disappointed by their performances. Meanwhile, last night got their Europa League campaign off to a winning start against FC Zürich

"Never seen a player who can not play because the club is going to need it to pay more money to all the clubs or when you are talking about a very important player. A player that I think is a toughest score at the moment for your team and it's been so clinical in the last month is a very strange situation, very difficult for the player and that's why I think he was celebrating grabbing the departure of Atlético and Madrid and hugging his coach because once again I'm guessing that they have talked they have a rifle and understanding and the best way to do it is when you are on the field try to do your best and I'm going to try to bring you every single time that I can because I know that you are a key player for us. Frank, how does this affect the French national team because he's not playing as many minutes as he may be, but then when he is coming on, he's doing really important things for his side. So how is that going to be viewed in the national team? Well, I'm guessing that he has communication with digital, but this situation. I mean, there's nothing he can do. You know, he can not play because if he plays too much, I think he will have to pay lots of money. So it can be force even if it does good. It can be forced to go away or to come back to Barcelona, whatever. I don't know what to do in that situation. And that's going to be complicated for him until they find a solution. I want to know who defense you know grisman in that situation in that contract or who defended it. Who put that in the contract? I mean, that's absolutely insane to see that the player with his talent of Griezmann can not play because otherwise the club will have to pay. So why he hasn't been sold out or a canceled in an old in a previous time. So now, of course, the concern for the national team, but you know, you didn't prove many times that especially with Giroud that even if you play only 30 minutes, you can have a stressed. And great as many is an important player for the national team. So I guess it would be with the national team in the World Cup and he will have a little bit more time to show his talent.

"Score gold. That's something that he has to add to his abilities, but definitely he's a player that you can not find in many places, Chavez comparing him with Neymar. I think would speed and ability, yes, is through the name of his God, that skillful that very low players can have in the history of football, but definitely is giving so much to Barcelona and happy to see that he's working with for chubby. Stevie. Do you know where shavi should have said? I think the pin he's dropped. That's what he should have said. Never mean this nonsense about he's a best version of Neymar. He should have said the penny's dropped. This guy, as a professional footballer, to players who have been professional footballers, well, if you get not my nose, you know, the opportunity to play a Barcelona over the last four to 5 years. They won't have money he was getting. He's been he's been given everything and Ollie's done up until 6 months until our season is just fritter all the way. And now it seems like the pennies dropped. Well, Chevy had a lot of confidence in him and backed him from the beginning. Well, he's going to see that from the beginning anyway to try and get the best out of them. And he is getting the best out of them. And what we're seeing now, you know, Louis and I had this conversation at the start of the season and I was bashing. And I was bashing them rightly so because a little spell of 6 months over the 5 year period isn't enough to convince anybody that you're a world class player. But I'll see. Again, Luke's late the penny's job because that's exactly what he's doing. Everything he gets the ball, you think he's going to do something. So keep continuing to do it. And the French national team picture, Frank, how is he viewed? Hi, Al, you have to consider that you have many talented players who play with the national team, but he had a chance. He was there and they can go back. That's for sure. If he can prove that he can last long and not be injured before the World Cup. Yeah, he has a chance if he keeps on assisting goals and scoring goals. Yeah, it's a possibility because the talent is there. I agree. Offensively, what he does with his right foot and left foot doesn't even know if he's a left footed or right footed, he has the talent of maybe a name or I don't know, but he has a real talent. Now he has to work there. It's only there for him. You know, how he replaced himself when he loses the ball and how he behave professionally to make sure that he's going to last longer. 5 games, guys. This season, 5 games. Yeah, we can talk about consistency of 6 months because of the last season. But he's only been 5 games, so I'm going to wait a little bit longer to judge his performances because the only way to judge his performance is performance sorry is to see him playing and playing and playing and being good and being good and being good. Okay, let me just quickly before we move on from Barcelona, ask you Louise about Robert Lewandowski because shabby said he is in love with the player and it's about more than his hat trick. It's about everything else he does. He can't really argue with him, can you? Not much. I think we are all in love with Lewandowski. We used to like him when he was there for Bayern and now there is an embossed on it. Of course, everybody is enjoying because he looks a professional. He looks at a teammate, he looks at a player of the team, he's helping everyone. I saw the other day, just going to Ansel far to tell him Lisa and I keep going and everything. That's a player you want in your team. And definitely we all know what is he capable of. When he's near the box is so dangerous, the bully of the other day, yesterday a hat trick, so easy for him. He's got this football in intelligence so much that every single time that he's near the box, you don't know what is going to happen because yesterday they were passing the ones when he scored the two goals. So I think he's a fantastic player. And a fantastic feat for this Barcelona have been plays like the belly like Racine, like serran Torres emancipate plays who can assist you can fit him with both. I think he can score 30 plus goals this season in La Liga. And well, we'll see if he can continue doing the same in ChapStick. Talking about important players for their team. Real Madrid may have

"A dressing room. So they will have to seduce him in order to be on the field on Saturday and choose the Wednesday in the champagne. So there is no time to think through and say, well, you know that guy is completely or not. I'm a big star. He's going to have to play me because alongside the guy we think that you have 20 other players who think the same. Or we might think the same. So I think everybody have to be ready for big competition and Potter is going to be the man. And they will have to make sure that they will have to make sure that they work hard to be in the first 11, otherwise they're going to be on the bench. As for the manager though, Shaka, you wonder how long he will be given to try and implement his style and his ideas on this side because we've seen already under this bowly era two. Patience isn't too long. There were temptations to see why he's got 5 years to prove his worth it to the club. But under turbo it's business as usual. We wondered what Chelsea would look like in terms of their approach, given the change of ownership. We knew what it wasn't about Brown victim. We just wondered what direction told bully would take it. And he's been quite clear in that announcement. For me, the sucking of Thomas took a mix makes no sense. Unless you are piling all the failure of Romero kaku on Tuco's doorstep, unless you're adding in the fact that he couldn't get the best of the evil villain. I know it wasn't his signing, but then the easy speculation was he would get the best out of him and clearly didn't. Other than that, it makes absolutely no sense. We've sat here all season and said, Chelsea need a striker. They get one in and in less than 90 minutes. Thomas Tuchel is less than 90 minutes without striker. Thomas Tuchel is only door. So from that football in perspective, it makes it makes absolutely no sense. For Graham Potter, I think it's a good signing. But the one caveat to that is football management is such an inexact science. Just because you are doing brilliantly at Brighton, doesn't mean that you'll do as well. At Chelsea, all the big clubs. But it is the most valuable of proving grounds. That and European action to me. If you can take a club a smaller club and compete in European football, I think that is as clear an indicator as you can get. Of course, Brighton didn't get. And European football, but just the style, the method, the way he did things that at Brighton makes him worthy of at least taking that gamble. And Chelsea have clearly put themselves in a position where they know how to make gamblers. Will it translate? Do you think Stevie, what we've seen from Potter at Brighton, there's no doubt in that he's a talented coach, but is it bad timing for him? It's been a stumbling start and now there's European football thrown into the mix too. But you never get a job like this at the perfect time. You only got a job with this with things are going awfully wrong. And yes, the perfect team for any manager would be at the end of one season. So he can have preseason, but he won't have that. But at the end of the day, I think I said he is today. Thomas Tuchel got the Chelsea job because he was supposedly a great coach. Everybody said he was a difficult guy to get on with. What the importance of Greek coach. We know Graham Potter's a great coach. We know that Graham Potter can win games in the Premier League with the best of them. And we know he's actually a good guy. He's very immutable, and he does get on with people. So yes, if you look at the resume it's a gamble, but it's not really. You're talking about a guy who knows the Premier League inside. This is not a case of gun and getting somebody who's been coaching in Russia or France or wherever. This guy knows the league inside out. He knows the players inside out as well. No, yes, when you train with players, you see things that you don't normally see when you're playing against them. But he knows everything about every single one of them. So why can't he put this team together? He's got the chance. Except managing a superstar ego. It's one thing knowing the Premier League, but then when it comes to managing big egos now, that's going to be a whole different part of it. Well, managing to me manage a big egos is about your own moral compass. What's right in what's wrong. And you should take them to that. And have half half of managing big egos, there's no way you're talking about as far as what's going on in the field. You know, happy player, you know, happy player is not going to cause you problems off the field. So if you can get your job right, which he can and will, I'm sure, then you're not going to have all these other problems. So I think this is a great appointment. And I'm sure he'll do well. Speaking of big egos, we do have a World Cup winner, Frank leboeuf with us. Fred, what do you think of that aspect of things that obviously he's going to be managing much bigger name players now? Yes, of course, but I don't think you have to you have to separate stars and megastars. It's Mbappé Neymar Messi Ronaldo, which I understood that it was very difficult to manage because you really have to build the team around them. I don't think there is that type of player at Chelsea right now. Like I never felt you know when I was in a dressing room that I played with Zola, gulley, violet, and so many others, Dennis wise, they were styles. But I'll tell you when the coach was saying something and they were bad they knew that they were about to put the head down and didn't respond to the coach. So I think with the team I see, I don't see any problem coming from the players towards mister Potter because I think you have players who have to prove everything again. And I have to say that, yes, we live in a world of emergency, but there is also time to build something, especially your relationship, and to make sure the team is better, because right now, again, if the players look at themselves in the mirror, they're not good enough. And I think part of can say that, the first day, it's not good enough for the talent that you have, what you presented to the audience and to the fans is not enough. So everybody with me, we're going to move forward and we're going to work together. And if I have a big star and think he's better than anybody else, he's going to be on the bench because I don't care. I've got 5 years contract. And you're going to listen to me. Speaking of faith and 5 and the number 5, he still 5th favorite with this Chelsea side to finish in the top four, what would success look like to you, Frank? Considering the timing he has

It's always sad to see somebody living, especially so early after seeing him winning the Champaign while you're after but it already happened in the worst effects to Roberto di Matteo as well. I think he was like a couple of months after winning the championship. So he is like usual for Chelsea to be able to psych many coaches and try to be successful as well. Do you know it's better to know that never? Or later, but just you needed to react and make sure that they go back on track and make sure that it gets at least in the first position in the league. Grandpa seems to be the guy and I'm happy to see somebody not with a big resume. Somebody who has to prove at the biggest level with somebody with thoughts in his head and his head and willing to do everything to do better for the club and also better for himself. So I'm very interested to see how he's going to work and I'm really looking forward to seeing Chelsea changing the way the play being more vertical and I think grandpa is a right guy for the right time. Just picking up on what you said though there, Frank, obviously this is a completely different team. Yes, he said this great stint at Brighton, but now this is Chelsea. Well, the players respect him. Is this a risk from the board? I don't think it is. I think the players, well, if they look at themselves in the mirror, they realize that they don't do well, so Tucker has been sacked because of his decision, but sector also because of the poor performances of the player. So the player they know that they need to react and also they will have to play to please Potter because the model 11 players in

"Welcome into the latest edition of ESPN FC Kay Marie shaker his love and Stevie nickel here. And we start the show on a somber note Queen Elizabeth II has passed away at balmoral in Scotland on Thursday. She was the longest serving monarch. Gab marcotti joining us now from England to talk a little bit more about today's news. It's obviously a sad day back in England, gab. But I think for many people who aren't based in the UK, they won't know the relevance of the relationship between English football and the royal family. Yeah, I mean, it's certainly always been there. I think the majority of the royals wouldn't profess to be football fans, but they've always been supportive of the FA. I certainly Prince William. I believe he still is the sort of honorary chairman active in the past when they were bidding for events like the 2018 World Cup. Those of us who are old might even remember a certain Jurgen Klinsmann receiving his Euro 1996 trophy from the queen herself. So I think the support was always kind of within the sphere of the queen. She was supportive of her country. She was here to serve her country. And all things British. And obviously football, because of its history, very much something that belongs to belongs to Britain. And tremendous affinity with the country. Or what does this mean gap then for the Premier League features this weekend, obviously the country is in mourning. Well, we're kind of uncharted territory here, obviously, because, as you mentioned before, she was one of the longest serving monarchs ever or the longest serving monarch since 19 53, the protocols for the morning are still being worked on. The football league fixtures in the lower divisions that were scheduled for Friday have already been postponed. The thinking is that it's likely that the Premier League games this weekend will also be postponed. Although, of course, the calendar is extremely extremely tight. But that hasn't been announced yet. That hasn't been decided yet. Part of the thinking right now about why they don't want to announce too many things too quickly is that the thinking is it's a time to grieve. But the department of culture media and sport was responsible for these decisions is in talks with the Premier League. Thank you so much for joining us. Queen Elizabeth II has died at 96. Following the sacking of Thomas Tuchel Graham Potter has been appointed as Chelsea's new manager on a 5 year deal leaving his role at Brighton to take the position. We
