"And don't forget he's only 22, so he's been very brave and well done from him. And all being said, lads, we spoke before how important it was to, you know, we wanted to see a stronger action against rest team in football, and hopefully this is the beginning of something in the future. And all those that we are parents and we bring the kids to the stadiums and all that, we need to educate them to respect the people as well because sometimes this is because it's professional football, but it happens in every single level, in low leagues as well. So this is part of the society that we need to be aware of those things that there is no place for racism. And hopefully we can learn from this and as I say, it's so important for the football players when they are on the pitch and they see someone in the stand that is making a monkey chant or something like that, to walk away to support a player who is getting abused. We all, everyone has to be involved in this and referee, they should stop the game and people from the fans, you know, from the stand on fans, they also need to be aware because imagine if you are an assistant ticket holder from Valencia now and you are a place in that stand that is being closed for the next five games and you haven't done anything. It's only been a group of a few people. Then you cannot, you pay for your assistant ticket holder and then you cannot attend to watch a football game for the team that you support. So this is something big. That's something that's a fun. If you're there and you see someone next to you doing something wrong, you should stop this as well. So this is part of, you know, we all need to be involved in this and hopefully we can see, you know, we all need to be better in the future. How much a precedent, Sid, going forward? Well, absolutely it does. Of course it does. And there's a couple of things to pick up on here, by the way. It sets a precedent, of course, in terms of the treatment of the club in this sense, sorry, rather in this case, the closing of that stand. It sets a precedent that says if there is racist abuse, this is the kind of punishment that you can anticipate. Bear in mind that Valencia, while they may well be safe, they could be fighting for their first division survival in those next couple of games. This could be very, very significant for them in sporting terms, which of course brings with it the very significant economic considerations as well. Obviously there will be an appeals process. So my guess is that this may actually not be enforced this season. We may see at the start of next season, but that definitely sets a precedent and it sets a bar as well. It sets a bar about what kind of punishment and how many games you would in the event of something like this. The other precedent has been set, I think is a really interesting one and possibly a slightly more problematic one, which of course is the decision to take away the red card that Vinicius then got. Now that was based on the idea that the VAR didn't show the referee all of the footage, that Vinicius came into it conditioned by the racist abuse that came before him. And I think that's a very interesting precedent because of course that's slightly more difficult in terms of how do you actually apply that in the heat of a game, in the 90 minutes of a game going forward, how do you manage the referee's authority in those kind of situations? But the fundamental one, the most important one, although I think the more simple one to apply is this one of closing of stands. And I think it sets a very, very significant precedent. I think this is a real shift. I really think this is a real shift. And a couple of days ago I was cautiously optimistic, but I couldn't help thinking, am I just being hopelessly optimistic here? Am I being really naive to believe that this might actually move on? And I think what Vinicius has done by choosing to confront this, by choosing to face it down, is he has forced the hand of so many people. He's forced a situation and, you know, allow me to be flippant for a moment in a very serious scenario, but allow me to flippant to make the point. He's done something extraordinary that we didn't imagine. He's put the federation and the league together and forced them to act together to actually make something happen. These two bodies that have run Spanish football and have been at each other's throats for almost as long as we can remember have been forced by the gravity of this, by the determination from him, by the weight that he carries as a Real Madrid player to actually come together and take action. I think it's really very significant indeed. How significant, Sid, what struck us obviously on Sunday as all this losers break as we were live on the show, Vinicius Jr.'s statement, was the reaction then from Javier Tebas, who then doubled down on that on Monday. Where does this leave him? Because obviously he's back down and obviously a lot of what he's been saying hasn't really run true in that we've been doing everything we can in the past. Well, obviously you haven't because today you've taken a massive step, which in the past you alluded to the fact was out of your control. Yeah, and this goes back to exactly where I started, Dan. I think you're right. This idea that, look, there is only so much we can do. And as I said on Sunday, we talked about the mechanics of this and we, you know, strip away the kind of the moral questions and we talked about the mechanics of this and we talked about some of the things that La Liga had done. And then it's true that they had prepared reports and they had handed this information over to the the judicial authorities, handed to the equivalent of a state attorney, asked for these kind of cases to be seen in the case, for example, of the racist abuse of Vinicius before the derby game against Atletico Madrid back in September. It was the public prosecutor that decided they didn't have sufficient evidence. And the context of the rivalry of a football game and it not being very many fans, which, you know, with hindsight, even at the time, it was an extraordinary thing to say that they couldn't proceed. And La Liga's position was, well, we gave them all of this information. We are the ones that have made these nine formal complaints about abuse of Vinicius this season. We are the ones, for example, that forced through a formal complaint about the abuse of Iñaki Williams by Espanyol fans. And that's a case, by the way, which is going to end up with three fans in court in the in the near future. So La Liga's point was we are doing this and we can't do more. But as you say, we come to tonight. Well, hang on a minute. This looks like more and nothing's changed in the meantime. You've not been given more jurisdiction. You've not been given more power. Now, it's true that you don't have judicial power. And La Liga asked today for more power. And I think that can be problematic, of course, because, well, you're a league, as you've just discovered now tonight, you have quite a lot of power. You can't ask for judicial power. That's just not your role. But you can ask for this other power and you can apply this other power, which you already had. And then, as you say, there's the question about Tebas personally. And on Sunday night, while Tebas may well have felt that he had a point in saying to Vinicius, look, we've told you we're doing everything. We've tried to explain this to you. We are the ones trying to force this through. We are the ones trying to make change. We are the ones trying to try to get people punished. We can't do any more. Even if you could understand his position in terms of trying to make that point, the nature of the way that he did it was so tone deaf after the events of

"I did a tram was going way too fast or immobile was going way too fast. Or they were both gone. Yeah, these kids in the column. Those kids in the car as well. Very early in the morning. I'm just glad that everybody's but everybody's going to be okay. But yeah, lots of tremendous season from them. It was inaki Williams show in the boss bass Derby. Jules tell me more. I'm so happy for inaki Williams and for the Williams family overall to be fair. It's got two goals. They want tune in against routes to that. And when you remember Nicole Williams getting abused after the defeat, the defeat against osasuna in the semifinal of the capabilities and how much that impacted the Nicole Williams, of course, his brother in yaki, the Williams family for inaki now, who is now a typical prolific or who said that many times, but he's got other qualities for him to come so big in a game of this magnitude is amazing. So well done to him. It was so good to see him so happy smiling. The whole fire. It was brilliant. Second goal pretty sweet. And amazingly, we also have two daughters, still fourth. I know. Since the turn of the year is crazy. Got some love for the Mourinho please. Sure, why not? He's played a center forward in this game under there, but he's called so come on. You have this season. Which is crazy. All right. Look, there's a third in the table. That could change if you think it's a point reinstated, so then they moved on to the floors. They're there, the fans love them. I don't think the football is great. I was knocked at that. But he's doing what he promised to do. And I think that's all you can ask for. Yeah. Igor true to our celebrates his birthday with a three year old. Marseille went over as a return to second place. Jules, does he believe in his heart of hearts that Marseilles can win the title? I don't think so. I think they will be just too happy with second place, which is a direct spot for the next season Champions League, which is what they want. They have the second highest budget in ligand. Yeah, they do yeah. And they spend 30 million who's got two goals, by the way, finally, again, it was very happy because he hadn't scored since arriving in January, not as good as the other 19. Different profile than the other vital. The PhD one, but it's got two well done to him. They played well for two 45, I think it was on Sunday. And considering the admin one at home at the velodrome for so long it was good to finally get away in the finite deal trials, the fanatics are the better is what I think and had plenty of flares and everything. It was great. So well done to them, but I think 8 points without having without playing without a head to head. It's probably too much. The most United States saga rumbles on God. Another private equity firm, the Carlyle group in the U.S. is reportedly interested in buying a stake. Yeah, what does this mean? Well, at least it's a little bit different, right? Because you had people who were willing to lend the glazers money in excess of a billion to invest in the club or possibly buy out some siblings. And then you had people who wanted to buy the club, like your boy, so Jim. And the qataris. Now that Carlyle group, according to the story I saw, supposedly they want to acquire a minority share in the club. Now, that means you've got a lot of faith in the glazers if you're acquiring a chunk of the club, but the glazers stay in control. Seems a little odd to me. It's another thing for the glaciers to think about, or maybe it's more financial PR people putting rumors out there. Three two, but Jules, I know you want to celebrate Tino Werner for his two goals, especially the second one. Yeah, because it's a lovely volley. I mean, you could always argue that maybe his first thought she's not that great. Oh, you think that's why he had to do that? Yeah, to then make the body to hit it, but still. I don't want to be mean to Timo because we've been mean on him so many times. And this time it's called two and the second one is really a beauty, even if like me, you think that maybe the first touch is a little bit Dodge. Dodgy, but still, the volley is great, well done to him. Leipzig, you know, marching on again, going back to winning west, which was, I think, important. And if Timo can score and can have that kind of format at the end of the season, is going to be good for them to finish top four. Chelsea have reportedly held talks with Euro Niagara's gap at least, they're working on a new boss. Yeah, face to face meeting after the video chat with Luis Enrique last week. Look, I'm going to say is who is driving this process? If it is Chelsea, it should be Christopher Bell, Lawrence Stuart, and one Stanley. As long as Paul win Stanley does something yeah, we're not sure. You know, you have to let the experts do their job. This can't be taught boldly. Like in the summer going on, like, oh, this guy is this guy seems good or look, agent act just recommended this other dude to me. Like let these guys do the job. If they appoint the wrong guy, I think nagel's money in many ways is a fit. You know, two of those three guys have read bull experience. That's a fit with nagelsmann too. But they have to run the process and you have to use that word. You have to trust the process. And if it doesn't work, then you fire them. Hamas Rodriguez, as we sit in this contract with Olympiakos, Jules, after Everton and RAA, the three straight clubs were released in early, he still only 31 years. Mind-blowing. I know, I mean, I'm surprised when he didn't really seem earlier to be fair considering he was hardly playing. Not bringing much to the team anyway. What'd you go next? That's the thing while you go back. What happened to this guy? I don't know. I think it can't be focused on football anymore. Otherwise, it's just, I mean, it just could not be the case that three clubs see the same things and release you early because clearly your head is not there. Otherwise they would not, they would not do that. And I think he was even lucky to come back to Europe after R rayan and to go to olympiacos. So now what? You go to you go to a malays, you go back to you go somewhere South America, which to be fast worked, some people have gone at that kind of age, go back to play in Brazil, for example, and do well.
