"Means Delay Sedation. Espn APP on Dan. Thomas later on in the Foam Germany's and Aso now sits on the executive members for crying. Pretty Bo Bitch will be joining us to talk about preparations to getting things back up and running in the Bundesliga. Also Danny Higginbotham upsets wrong with this suggestion. That Jordan Henderson should be named at player of the year in England. But we start as we always do by taking a look at the latest virus and we're talking about the premier league. It's interesting if you take a look at the European notebook and a from what not. Alton had to say within the article which release saying those have said that some plans are increasingly antagonizing fire high profile players voicing concerns from their paws at the holiday homes in the sun about safety issues when many players need. I'm want return in order to safeguard their careers. Playing huges Danny Higginbotham into this. Say say you can take a look at a case in point. I suppose Guero. For example has boys his fears about coming back but in theory he could retire tomorrow and being financially fine. We're talking about who on in that situation. And Danny you kind of in that situation. Would it affect you your choice about whether or not come back? No no because then what you do when you're looking at you wealth before health and I don't think is whether you're replay the tune in two three four five million of US permanent stand in a lot less. It really doesn't matter because it can still affect those people so I don't necessarily agree with with the statements if plays are saying that it's okay for soon individuals to say because obviously there been a lot of money throughout their career. In my opinion it has nothing to do with that whatsoever is not to do with the financial side of things because like I say no matter how much you were and if you get back on the football pitch you've got as much chance of getting as whoever else not pitch with you so I disagree with those statements. Stevie if you're playing today how comfortable would you be about returning to action? I would be comfortable if there were things in play. The the men every every avenue was put in place to to not not guarantee your safety because you can never do that. But the level of the level of safety would be my only concern. Celebrate cotton down. The percentages of somebody actually catching the virus and probably more importantly for please please just wants to play. I think if I'm a clear if I was still clear my concern wouldn't be plan. My concern would be. Do I take something home? So regardless of the money situation has to be about how safety the Environment You unto us and clearly you can never guarantee you will never be one hundred percent but I guess individuals will will judge. The percentages are and make a decision from there. One of the problems. Your so obvious that if play is now saying right okay. We've seen what's happened over over recent weeks especially Bundy's league in Germany. You know that things are starting to look better for Germany's entry now. If you don't start the game now then basically what you're saying is that you're not going to stop until his kill now. How long is it going to be until the cure is going to be one years? You're going to be two years threes. We don't know nobody knows that what you're saying is going to be no football and not sign. We all know that there is. There was a risk within it like Stevie just quiet Ryan. They said the biggest thing that I would be concerned about as a as a player as if I was to get it and accidents take your own family member. That would be the worst possible outcome for me. Would you come back. Danny I think if if I knew what the stipulations what and I knew. There was very little chance of me getting it then. Yeah I think I think I would do. I think if you'd have asked me two or three weeks ago I would have said no but I think the way that things are going up the moment like say specifically we're looking at the pundits later in how things have been done at the father and he's getting pets. I think I probably would do. And because I think there's talk about how they may be two tests a week. Something like that. And you know making sure that everybody's okay and being able to have the test so that's the big thing but. I think it does come a point where you get a point where you can only get as close as possible without actually having the cure to then go and carry on with the football. Meanwhile there will be some changes. When they win. Football returns we know the I fab proved now five substitutions because the frequency of the Games that will increase Steve. What do you make it? This say we'll be five substations that they can only be made as we see now three times during that. I'm scared case cases. See the wrong thing. I mean come on. Do you know what I've reminded. His dog were always complaining. About preseason game when the making all these substitutions and kind of the thing is power the pro the whole game is the manager getting these tactique. Straight and picking the right twelve and plays performance. Players have an have an a level of physicality they can play so many games. So many things with you know just just playing the game. Where's IT GONNA stop? Listen to solve was fine years ago and then they made it three one not happy but you know what okay but come on five. I mean really what is going on. And they're talking about the frequency games you to play three games a week. So they wins. You saw the. Nobody's GonNa make you play anymore and nobody should be allowed to anymore. And if you can't do the wrong game so don't don't try and make thing easier by you. Have Ten if you don't find what what's going on with your team. Another one on does stall come on five spot to Manny Danny Stevie sitting on the fence and not really quite which way he's going what do you think I think? The STEVIE Stevie won't agree but I think we should have at least five at least five swaps. I understand Steve is coming from from joined. The and obviously you know when there's been sued. Obviously we know now that the seven Simpson and three can be used for. These are extreme. Circumstances is not going to be. It's not going to be you know something is going to stay in forever but just failed. The what's going to happen. Is these players have not gonNA play by the time they step on the football pitch GONNA play for probably two or three months and my cell phone was playing. You played in preseason game the first game it always be eleven. Plays the first forty five minutes and then another eleven plays the next five minutes Chris. The problem you're going to have is your first. Preseason game is going to be competitive primarily game so if your own if you are five substitutes. That's all well and good but that means the five plays from the would go to play the full ninety minutes and a fully competitive market. So I'm all in most subsitute just while this he's going on because they're extreme circumstances but then when the new season to start in the future because of what he's been stay to hear if you stuck in a few stuck in if you're born with and stuck in relegation mile you know you're not. GonNa Make Life Solved these. You're stuck at the ball because you starting to. Levins is good as you've got so you're going to play against Liverpool and they can make five changes when when you know that you've eleven players. Are you think they lost what you've seen as well? They'll never be ill last night. A game three games in a week then absolutely not good then because there's no way there's no way you're going to take off you. Tell me about please. Even if the tyrod because the guy you're putting on you know is absolutely not good enough. I mean it you make it easier again late most things. The bigger clubs with the biggest courts makes far easier for them so so basically turn hamstring in the small team as well true extent. Yeah I think the problem is is the. You're going back without doing anything for three months. Not Any competitive matches. And then you're gonNA turn on a football pitch. I would rather have more substitutes didn't have to play with say a place. It's my plays again. The in crop in that first competitive game gaming. The first competitive game is primarily game again. Please that game injuries. Because I'm not it's GonNa happen but you could end up with games where it's being eight thousand eight because players just aren't capable of doing it. I think for the first two or three games. It will be an issue then. I think that when they start to hit the ground and they're able to get going then I think they'll be okay but I just think kids with the safety mind with the health in mind monitor. My look playing listening needs to come off. Also the is he's not going to be available for our next game which might be like you quite rightly said in two or three days. The Games are not going to be played at the same pace. You don't WanNa go biking since you're not going to go see. A game played at incredible pace. It is so everything's going to be a level playing field for everybody. Tell let's keep a level playing field cocaine. Five subs a level playing field for the smaller teams. No chance gentlemen. Thank you very much reminded dining with me on extra time. Today joined by shocking. You can check that out on our youtube channel seven years ago. Is today that we learn this. Rally spokesman was retiring Tokyo Manchester United called. Looks at what has happened since Johnny Higginbotham is still with us. And we'RE NOT GOING TO MANCHESTER UNITED DOWN. If I think of Juliana Ron joins the show as well because dining we wanted you to give us your premier league team of the year so far and I tell you there was one thing that just jumps off the page when I looked at this Danny and that was no. I think you know obviously money and Sella will be in numerous numerous people's teams. I just think when you look what he's done for south on some without them. They've been relegate seizing on people's choice for Fantas go the amount of goals scored and struggled doesn't necessarily have to be you know the plays from from the teams in the Premier League. I just thought I would look for the individual. What they've done how they've had such effect on that same because like I say Southampton you take him out. That same day would get relegated. I'll look money. What they win the Premier League without him. You could still say they. They could do because of the that. They've gotten not saying but I just think kings has been up sued outstanding this season and let's not forget took him a while to get into the team and his is still managed to get fifteen primarily goals. Saudi Amana Danny. You want me to say why haven't picked him. You can trust me the player of the year. Sorry you could argue. He's paying the player of the year. No I don't I don't think that it has been there and oversee will gallons on next but I just think when I look at individual plays or what they've brought through and same things look at body goal scorer in the Premier Aleka Obama young top goalscorer for Arsenal scored seventeen goals also scored four goals. He's never enough. Got Half goes of the Dawson scored less the Jamie Valdis Still. Doing the is top goalscorer. Show money yes I understand. People are constantly saying that at the end of day the reason upset as because I look at that Liverpool Sane and Darren upstanding team this is about individuals. The in particular for anxieties inclusion has stood out arsenal this season. They've been well below. Average Obama Young Stout Varghese completely changed the way that he plays the game the way. Now in in my opinion is is the all round centerfold away? The plays a feeding him. So that's why I've gone for those free from instead of money and like I say I'll probably got bent stick football. I'm looking at individual basis. And what they're out to bring into a same in particular sometimes in Austin a little lies wherever they being the league without them. Joe's post is your mind my team get everything that Danny's saying I think it's not just seventeen goes eight assists which does still go this season. He's also in the moments where Liverpool were growing oftentimes. You're losing. That happened a lot and he was there. He was the clutch minute with the key to get the three points on incredible run that they went on to. I think I would have money there. I would have as well involved Obama on the one for me making the my my team of the year. And we're outside your money instance anything else vehicles to you disagreed with. I Love Donny and I respect his team and so I would go with Henderson in gold because I think she has been incredible and Chris Wilder both me and Danny would pick him as a manager of the year without without even debates that has been so key in Washington. I should have done this season. He's been outstanding on his line. I think he's a wonderful. Young keeper is learning. Fast is listening is he? I think he's GonNa love good very positive thing about himself. As as as the person as well as were prior so I would put him ahead of. Listen there will be no Henderson. The other Henderson Jordan Henderson. In my team and it indeed for me has been the best defense in the league so far this season and I would go jeannie one nine. Who is for me? The most intelligent play that we have in the permitting right. Now let's talk about Jordan Anderson then more details a danny has named him as the player of the season. Jewish on guessing that he's not in your team of the year he's not your player that season. No No. He's not to say I've never been a big fan of the play player Henderson. I think he's a great guy. In and as as a lot qualities as a person and in terms of leadership is great and and why he represents for political club and while Liverpool means to him as well. This is brilliant. And that's all great and class taken his game to the next level. Yeah I'm not. I'm not the biggest fan of the player and that's why for me is not the player of the year neither if you take a Liverpool player deserve more because like I said he's so intelligent and he's the one that can do everything in that team is the one that club relies on the law in midfield to delay between the Buffalo and the thrones to to clean it up in midfield to walk again is also to score goals even against debate we. Tv Nickel on the floor. Few weeks ago For me when amazing football player Danny Yep threes? Now got the Henderson as two things that stand out from the season so what was the Walford game? Their only defeat this season Henderson was was missing. Think a lot of times you realize. I'm good player is when they're not actually involved in the game and then I go back to the munches to see home game as well why they won't three one toxically clock. It absolutely spots on Alex under Ronald Manchester City. Look to really target him. So what club did he played nearly four four one one and he played Henderson as a right wing. Allow trend Alexander Ronald stay by Henderson. Got The assist on. It's what he brings to the same. We've seen a lot of people associated with just being defensive midfielder. We've seen again through before decision. He's got more goals is getting more assists. I just think the leadership that he brings to that team as route Liverpool are bet. Same with him in it. There's no doubt about it whilst about the defense failed or been more attack minded. I think he just brings the best out in other places around the one thing. That's always been not stood Anderson and it would have been the same for anybody else to Winston Liberal Centrum failed to this accounts in your is going to be competitive Gerald which is ridiculous. In my opinion Stephen Girard is was a one off such an exquisite player. And he's always going to be difficult to replace but I just think that Henderson is found himself now will never police found his Rowlatt and he's found a way to actually lead that same and be the leader on the pitch. We've seen time and time again French. Why I've come for him and you know sometimes sometimes the the place that do get the ones that always please the eye all the time. We'll be plays like myself. You appreciate players like Jordan He'll do the wrote to allow over place to go and express themselves higher on the pitch. Meanwhile you both agree. The Chris Water should get manager of the season. I didn't get. This is the toll. Considering what Liverpool have achieved how extraordinarily dominant they have been onto. Stein is nice. Sheffield United Favorites to get relegated. Look at what he's done but surely taking your crops work count we Danny at Liverpool for complete and utter granted. You bring in a manager to win you titles. And that's exactly what he's done. Yeah he has not and the one thing I would say if before the season started if I would have said to. You Sheffield tonight or chance to Champions League football all over polar GONNA win the Premier League. What would you sets more likely resistant? Living for we're going to win the premier league in the dominant fashion. They would only lose one game along the way. They're absolutely sweep. Aside every single opposition. I understand Sheffield United. Doing what they've done is brilliant and Chris Walder's unexceptional job with the players. These good Chris Wilder have won the title with Liverpool. In the way that you can kloppers done I think crop could've kept Sheffield united up. I'm not sure Chris Wilder could have achieved what is done at Anfield. The way the way I look at it was bought for Manches to be an absolute sensational last season and going online critical towards the end of the number one. The League Armand just to sit city better than they were last season. No no they're not good. As while they were season you know the injuries in the central about positional me. One of the best center. Box in the Premier League dangerous to me about. We know the problems that sell hot. Chelsea bringing in a new managers bringing younger players through. We know the problems also have hot that much of a number of teams that are in a transitional period in my opinion Liverpool unbelievable. They've been absolutely outstanding. This season bought. I would've been more surprised if little didn't win. The this season because of water just mentioned about the clothes that you would perceive to be challenging. Who had a good season for one reason or another are in transition of loss players of injuries to key players whereas when you look at Club you say okay well you take over Sheffield United. There's no way that that seeing would potentially finished the Champions League so I think he's a greater achievement for what Chris Wilder is. Don't get this team onto the coast of acts again. Champions League football in that first year in the primarily arguably finished in above it argument finishing above arsenal arguably finishing talking Tottenham munches united a spent moral one player than I would probably say Sheffield United to spend on the whole of that. So that's where I'm going for I. Chris Wilder without question in my mind. We yesterday of course be discussed extraordinary comeback for Liverpool against vows at Anfield. It really was the best. Forty eight hours for neutral entertainment. Wasn't it last year? Liverpool game and then the day later I add taking on spurs remember. I X one nil up after the first leg in London took a two nil lead. Then Megan three now. At Half Time Spurs need to school three they schooled three Nukus Mara with pretty much last cake game guaranteeing a place in the next round. This was one chills. There was very special indeed or not I know. Lucas still cries when he when he watches the goal that is called night. Incredible especially the third one right in time the last again. This is the kind of thing as the player you dream all play is removed and I would never do it and Lucas and Danny probably dreamed of. I'm not sure if he did it. And Lucas and I think it's just incredible to go through something like that. They didn't win the final doubt forever. We'll will hold them that semifinals they leg non Saddam. We've staff ever anyone who was on that page booth. I xe full for spurs flag. We're staying in their mind and if you're finding you were there. Even if you went out there will always stay forever as one coming. Did we. Tiny no it always say I took a to know laid very early on which pulled in three and a little bit but then it got half time and as bizarre as it sounds. I didn't think taught him rather because what happened. The previous night with little pole and Lucas Moore was absolutely sensational. Felt sorry from the first. Because I felt the Tottenham played in our. It is Hans told him needs from the but because they didn't have a physical presence from in I extract press high and Lucas from. He was very isolated. Nobody really talks about it but you rented was defining in this game. He came on a time. I think he was for one yama on they then had dot focal point out that physical presence and I still press in high the innocence view from probably a little bit naive. It's the troubled Tottenham rail to go over press wondering over to the over the prestige frenzy every single time. Lucas more gumbel dolphin and his pace then starts to take advantage of the occupation. I excited the buck. And it was a wonderful tactical. Now's from From Portugal half time say it was just a sensation a sensational week for prime unique teams in Europe because nobody expects it on August common. If Chris Wilder was in charge of spurs were they have won the final Danny. Yeah because it Batman Seldom Star Star. Didn't do thank you very much guys just reminded legislation about ESPN NFC. All out of the champions they marked against in doctor you can take that out on Youtube Channel. Geico gets you access to licensed agents twenty four seven which means that. Geico is always there for you. If only everyone was always there for you like your wife when you forget your keys at work my texts. I am looking for the spare house key. Maybe I can get through the window. Turns OUT THE ALARM WORKS? It works fast. You should probably call me back. Geico always there for you with savings and twenty four seven access to licensed agents in case you missed it. Then the schedule announcement for next weekend's at Bundesliga Games on Saturday he got lives to Bruce. Your take on the shark are also Eintracht Frankfurt. Take on Bruce Gladbach back and I'M DELIGHTED TO WELCOME. Pretty BOVICI former Germany international now the executive member board member of sport at Frankfurt. Who's joining us? Now it's been incredible just watching all this play out over the last few days Freddie. What's green light to be involved in a situation where all of a sudden you're being told that yes matches a going ahead another stress you know because we had so many so many conference call. Saturday talking at this Different Commissions Task for US medicine. the politicians. You know everybody involved in in this To to reopen restart the league again We are really excited. Really happy to to come back and as I league. Also globally diverse leaker That would be a big big impact call for Germany. Bundesliga anyway now. Is it a feeling of excitement? Among supply is apprehension. How they feeling feeling good? You know because the boys they're only like two to play football they love it to to compete against the other the other team to score goals. You know that That is the goal what they would chasing Especially also the last week's very difficult the for the for the players. They only trained in small groups like five to eight was. We're allowed to train together. And so they starting two days ago with again to go in touch to to fifty other with the other players than regular training a everything you know kicking Sliding was really very excited to see like Kits took them something they can. They can do it again and they have been so emotional and about that. But it's a short time is only a short time until we start An settled in one week and so Hopefully hopefully nobody will get injured because the preparation to the to the first game is very short. That's it there's only eight days ago. Now until that first game few guys against Bruce Your mooching Gladbach and what's interesting about that game is on his own. There's no other games around it so it won't only be Germany watching football fans around the world who maybe have never watched the Bundesliga before but one to what some live soccer. How is it going to be amongst players? That can treat it as just another game. Surely you're going to be aware of the greater audience. It's going to be watching. Yeah sure and then I was also speech also next week Couple of days before they control the game. Talk about everything. Everybody would watch Global it's life We are very Situation all because all the other Games will happen on Sunday. Monday But also on Saturday in the afternoon then. It's the Primetime six thirty PM at Florida plane. In Germany and worldwide everybody would watch us How how we how we performed. But also how we've been managed to play in this kind of situation and then by Munich in action. Twenty four hours later top of the table ahead of Dortmund at the moment for you are a big big favorites to win the title once again this season unfortunately by a mini by a mini van. Minutes stakeholder in the League the cat was Very great team and they found on to struggle and then the first part of the season but now they are full-back but anyway It's really be very interesting to see this. This this window lockdown down started them really new situation and to find a ribbon everything that would be all big challenge for all clubs be judged And Bam Aquino so Everybody's excited to see How TO FISK Game Bill? Are you in the flow or not in okay? 'cause everybody's acting in good shape and fit but nobody knows if if they are really a team you know if they can compete like it was before last question by Munich. I promise before we move on. We GonNA show this week from. Ps Jay talking about the fact that their training schedule so up in the air looking to return to the Champions League in August obviously with the cancellation of the French league does the Bundesliga resulting next week and give buying an advantage. Looking ahead to the champions. Sure fish but you know August. That's a long period to think about what what is in August playing i. Hopefully we playing we also play into Europe Lake but hopefully hopefully also the gymnastics will can finish the nine hundred twenty season but So many question marks debt in all right not I. I'm not sure about what is in August and Is to travel is not allowed to travel. Tips appalled us no supporters. So it's it's it's it's a longtime thing about Obama. Nick if if it happened Will be a big advantage also very good opportunity to to to to to sleep so it's good for the bone asleep. Meanwhile of course amongst the chasing pack Peruzzi Dortmund. They've won a lot of fans this season with a young exciting squad and saw a football that they play who in particular out of the players. Do think are going to go very far from dormant is calendars team in the league. So any fantastic young players in all trade in Central Europe. Yeah they the R- really good opportunity. Also to challenge challenge by Monica Very I think it'd be playing the second week. They will play against by meniscus. It's key match also to to to come back to come close to buy an Goto to win at the end But would be a A great drink from the Bundesliga. The team not Manica win win the Bundesliga. So so I don't want you know because I'm also former player from Komo's and hopefully they can do it but Family experienced but I I like the home blessed though especially this young players. They're fantastic. Let's talk about you. Know Well Luca. Jovic of course made that big money move to Madrid over the summer. Sixteen million euros. He's only deliver to go so far. This campaign came back from quarantine and his fractured his toe. Which means going to be out for a period as well. You surprised how much he struggled given how good he was a Frankfurt last season. He was fantastic for us and all and also he's still young into this young players anytime and if you come to club like like it is not easy in all too Too Far find the right way also How to to act their jobs. So many superstars around you in Frankfort One of our superstars still under control from players did his job fantastic but he's still young and hopefully he will come back because he's special in the boxes. One of the top top top player. Police Age Never seen player like this in in in in the box this age Who can act so dangerous and an score so really really nice. Gold spotty struggle. That's right and I think he's I know that the eastern Kepi ride now repeat situation Alton Doing season so he now he's injured Hopefully that injury can help him to come strong back at like it was before I know In the season of Americans plying their trade in the Bundesliga including channel of course playing for Amtrak Frankfurter. How impressed all you with him. How much you like him? As a player like him and I was also splitting directors together enables plan them back. I was tried to to get him but no chance he moved later to diner. Frankfurt's on I am frankly Franklin with him and I'm I like him I like him because So much passion escaping always positive via he can play both sides on the right and left fullback Site and now he played also in the last games More offensive and he's got some goals far Unbelievable FOR HIM. He never scored four goals in a season is is he's a positive factor for us And he's also Frankford born now so Everybody loves him here. And you know really really great. Great Great Football Player but as a person. I could more final point just looking ahead to that big game against Bush mooching Gladbach the weekend. You think we're GONNA say more open more goals more action than maybe we've seen previously just because the players be or our staff was the first game back always. It can be cautious. I what sort of scoreline would you be? Thinking would be begetting for you guys I would. I would love to see a flight five so so many goods. That would be also interesting. Nobody if no experience about this situation right now after this long break and so coming back to play In in the League against the really strong team of turtles the year they are right on the spot to qualify for the Champions League a later fantastic season so we have not that one did play at home but be applauded because of supporters. Here in all fantastic stadium salsa great support us and but the correct of the game. I think change a little bit but I have no feeling about it. It will be offensive tackle or being more careful because nobody was in this situation before hopefully for the audience and everybody it will be a fantastic football football mentioned. Everybody will speak about it later. Pretty Voltage thank you very much for your time much. Afraid appreciate good luck for the rest of the season now over on the website. Stephan filled and Tom. Hamilton have teamed up to write on the Bundesliga extensive planned for kicking off next weekend and what other countries and leagues could learn from it. When we some real live action the k-league returns before the game. All the players of course wearing masks that temperatures were taken as well to make sure they didn't have a fever. Of course the game played in front of an empty just a one goal and it come in the eighty four. Th Minute from a corner leave. Don't go with the goal. The forty one year old making it one with six minutes ago proving enough to give a one their win over swamp blue wing. That's it not brings us the today show. Thank you to everyone who is being on if you on a bit more. That's how you extra time coming out. We saccharin extra time. Thank you as always the shot himself and Danny Higginbotham with we start with emergency nights question. Danny you guys agree with. Jules pct is suffering because of average teammates and the circumstances at nine. You shouldn't miss so phrase play. Carry the TAME instead of using excuses given by people like jewels. Nice straight own when he was seen as you know this. Play the complaint box to box box to box. Midfielder exists now through supposed to do the defensive and the attack inside supposed to fence. I would probably suggest that when he joined the club the was probably told that he's going to be the first of many many world class place in through the door off. That wasn't the case. I think Paul Pompous got frustrated signs himself. I think I it's supposed biggest problem. Paul Paul. Everybody knows what he's capable of. But just in getting that consistency. I'm hoping that when he comes back from injury and he's playing alongside Bruno Fernandez. We'll see different public. Because in my opinion I still believe that. He is world-class but it's very difficult for any individual play. It's a real mission to drug a team through when things aren't going so well he hasn't been great as you know. That's not his gift until the question. I'm trying to look further than the people like Jews comment from Paul. Paul and and with France is that he makes good teams better. But he's not the player. That's you build a team wrong. Which is why. He's trouble at Manchester United. That's what they're trying to do. And it's not would but is no doubt in my mind that you know he to move. Elsewhere are Real Madrid has been linked with fullback to you practice or indeed. When he goes back with France. You'll see the best. Buy Gaffe who he is. Maybe not the best person to ask this question to. You is like Halston Shack robot goalkeeping but Danny will try it. What's the most important quality for defender is about to be wrong or have a good sack digging every single showy? So I'm just I'm telling you the foremost defender so only if you'll always used to say to us do what it says on the ten if you're defending you defend first and foremost thing. Unfortunately what we've seen over recent years you plays like jumped surreally. Vich is your characters starch. Go on the game now and it's all about. Can you get the ball? And can you possibly fifty sixty odds and take it out defense? I'm still all about defend. Foremost and anything else on suffered is real bonus which decade the League is been the best in terms of quality of both suppliers and level of football the nineties. The Nolte's all the two thousand ten. Let's go to you Danny go with the north is I just think it was. You know you look at the rivalries. In particular off Mancha she and I it an Arsenal Chelsea then a dad. Ron Manchester see came into play thoughts from obstinately phenomenal place. Not Sound as we know. Who's in the as well? But he came in the two that he was down to two thousand dollars out drove back. So yeah I'M GONNA go for the noise sensational place. Outstanding teams agreed. We've noticed the decade when you look at the the poverty decade with the Manchester United Arsenal and their absolute bathroom defeated and then to finish up decade. Where you had united again Champions League joined the Double Bernardo before before he moves to spin. I think I as a decade can stand up to that shock who is the goalkeeper. Lehman founders saw snuggle. Can you really go all time last? Easy off again for me. Three the best ever seen did this recently. I think I haven't been with was it Was Good but I. I don't think he's these up in back category Johnny. Which was the most physical team that you played against off? Let less physical team early two thousands but they're not say the wonders tape dropped yourself some really good physical biles with them and oversee. I was part of the physical same as well. So Bolton less in my opinion at different periods. Yeah they they knew that then you scrap and then try and get out the deal with themselves you set. Pieces are a little bit much individuals. They always got that right. Why did you yes. What? What is the weirdest interaction? You've had your career. We've run as I say because I'M GONNA throw everybody at list. We've been asked to sign body parts. That's just leave it at that. It's a family show That probably as as weird an interaction as unsettling interaction as of hard remember. Speak about and you are shocking. Not to sign said body signed without all depend. I talent you what about what about. It's the way it is fat interaction. You know some of the way these ones like you going to the toilet and you'd be still dire pay tolkien C. And he told you fight to three minutes finished now just. I just want to go out and you get called it just. He's just like it's really bizarre. Really Rantel just keep talking and then sometimes you know Sapporo components acting oversee just paint and you want to shake your on before you even washed it say so many things but I want to keep my job so I'm not gonNA say anything right. Meridian lost lusted. Oh Okay shocker crate doing but can you correctly spell? Danny's surname G. G. I. N. B. O. W. Forum said it too quickly Donna. Reid did ain't no.

TFPP Episode 89 Striker preview with Garf

"Hello, everyone. Welcome to another episode of the fantasy plunk cost this day we are. Is the worst in ever you finally come back and you can't even get words out. And I just just really stroke then. These I we always golf a shock. The winner of our Fao, many lake, how are you doing golf? Very well. Thank you I mean yourself. Yeah I'm fine. Thank you. Good. So yeah, the cost is fondly back. We had to fucking do it. And we go off the price didn't we? Really because we didn't give him no mark you didn't send him pictures. Reds came on the poet. Yeah. Well, do Petri once. It's a top choice of fair picture or a guest on the postcards but. Yeah, go get you on golf. The second appearance you all the only Friendship Lanka, a podcast guests and the only returning site will. Appreciate. Your opportunity. Thanks very much. Enjoyed, it lost on. So this should be there should be good. Yeah. So I one is going to be slightly different because as prey season and episode is destroy preview. So myself FBI Shark and Mrs Plonker going to be in about over strikers on the game will. Say. As a few which have nothing to say. About. The structural episode is going to be a you never questions interviewing golf them going to jump strains also plonker. Then we can go free released JEB over strikers and hopefully give some knowledge aw insight into what we're thinking so far. There was the wire win the Cy some major pay for permission lot probably the biggest beef of all time with F. pair winner in denounced veto and we fucking Mr. An. Near about well we missed to anyone. But, yeah, you don't WanNa bring. Wall. Challenge some faith. So we'll get straight into the strike a preview in 'cause I first. Golf questions who is your current free forwards in your team? Where's your current formation and we'll all the box As three questions rolled into one their love it. So looking at my my my front. Verna Mitch, innings. And I'll be A four three, three full nation with three in the middle been a Benjamin Zoya Chin. Saleh and. Teeny, Alexandra, Arnold. Probably Justin entitled later the back. And then McCarthy Ingo. The full three. Nothing to calm brocade. Obviously I've got two big hit is in midfield twelve, million pace properly. To, begin rid of Saleh of for game two Kevin Debris and when he comes. Because of Peer is good for twenty goes to season and I think he's GonNa be playing upfront. Still play down the left wing I. Think lack is GonNa get itchy fee and he's probably gonNA leave before the the the season but you could probably tell us more about not punks. Fad It seems like he's on his way out but nothing confirmed yet. So you've put up money forwards process, and then because the very star of games release, it was a little paypal bat put in hardly any money in the free forwards but. Are Human is also verner Mitch Richmond. NASA says quote coop Amman neighbor compared to previous seasons when you know you had been Percy's you kinds at twelve mills, Uruguay twelve mills is still shaped him before. But yeah, off off, it was signnow go for got four minute bopping team criminal for free free a fool There is value in Iraq goods forwards in this game especially at the upper end. Agree with that. Opposite Body. At ten million. Kane at ten and a half a guero ten and a half, which is an absolute still if he can stay fit. 'cause he's is good for twenty goes in the season and cheapest price in in many season. So you know I think he's being overlooked but. Tough when When you have to full cal twelve, million for Saleh. An out of position in my opinion banging twelve million. So they can't win. Yeah that's it. That's it will about Mrs pay let you have done moment new now. And extremely badly yes audrey spicy crate once. Join Mini Lake. And I realized when I create it that there was no games for say, all Manu in the first. Game. Weeks I. Speak out one. So you've only free laws as a blank food you know say because you may if see. One the If I up wherever it was also on. The. Other thing if they won the other thing, then they wouldn't they would blank but they didn't win it but this do blanking. Well what assumed we assume them lose him would mean them apply still a for a day break and the blanked anyway. So who is your free for woods and what's your formation? Wow. I can't even tell him formation caught a. Fact. My my from free at the moment. Is. Your. Long and anti. Long is an old pick. Pick you actually also. Any yeah. Golf you are the one that told me Antonio de las gave last season's well he was a great show. Yeah. That's law season me. This is a new one and show you. Terrible pig is you're rude if you've got verner in law. A May play if is out on the wing. Politics injured but. Think. He's going to be starting for the overseas him an inch long. On about what you do what you plan up I couldn't think of any bad pig's fry I'm not being funny but. God You said Mitch Vh away of I'll say. Oh. Shout. Of Have you seen the fixtures livens be. He's Rony go score. What does he A Motte considerate. As you'd like, could now bypass it that you've got him. I think he's really hot because everyone he saw more expensive these days not all the midfield is so much money everybody so much money and a Mike Oh, my God you can't get all these payers is really ease at O. Folder of I'm going to struggle say in. Filton. Well, up all my money into midfield and of saying aside because you've got no money upfront. I'm. Well I've got full pay for blanking company got Mari Sterling Greenwood and Fernandez, and then then Don Charisma. Cheap fun. I'm? A. So hang on. Let me just. Say. Oh my God I may so you can go. fucking. Oh I well hopefully this is amy listening to this episode Yakkers we're GONNA to. Give you some help us. You. Need to get rid of long. But in this episode, I need a lot of help. So I'm willing to listen to all your good points and high to smash. If Peo- next season. Well wrought. Let's jump into some of the plunk him. A few questions we thought into the meat potatoes where everyone's thinking anyway. I'll just I'm just going to slow free rhythm out golf. Let you answer first and then. We will answer after. FBI Lucky fucker. Daloa of A. So you think corona virus will affect F pl I think because of a lack of office work environments, we will have fallen plaza season as casualties one convince yourself but same and joined the work league only one point four, million players so far. Maybe. La. Probably, worry won't be there probably won't be. We'll probably get maybe five million maybe then this year based on not less less effect. Not Saying are really thought about Should make it a little bit tougher to be if that's the case. Yeah. Lots beef album four but I. Could we'll be right could well. That'd be interesting if originalist paypal. We interested in. At Clara F. Peo- how much do you factor in marina is placed? Are when considering kind? Yet. Kind kinds and ordered one because Anatomy hates him with a passion. gimmes to be fair to him. He's got a busy schedule ahead. Of Him I think not so much. The plain style more. His schedule this season is going to be a lot heavier than last I think we might see the first glimpse of some rotation from Marino with regards to him. I'm not Tottenham expert but. He's our only strike. Really you know you Lucas Moore I appreciate and son doing a job in behind him but. you know when people say, oh he. Back and plays next. Sentiment filters, but they whole bug in there now from. Them? So. I think. That will give hurricane mills more confidence not to drift backwards and and play mole a central striker I think you just go watch out for his his rotation and his and his games because he's play. ECON, play all of them again. And and the problem is as well. Not only is your this season. Next. Summer is the European Championships and then you've got another B. season after an new strains that are woke up I mean you two and a half years of soccer and No. One's going to be out of breath. So e can't do all. I'll be surprised if they don't dip into the transfer market again and pick up A. Batch. All Another strike just. To spread the load a bit but we'll see Would you can. Interest to be filed and it really considered out and he's going GonNa. Be. The rotation will crepe him interested if it does. Other big factor in marinas placed are kind because I think it's just like the dropping back in just been kinda thing. It's not Marini thing. And learn. But. Yeah kind. We we know exactly what kind does now. He hasn't been put in explosive performances. He still does get goals. We know exactly what is about ten point five mill fairly reasonable price but for me. Of Command. Of had anything myself. I know how to mean anything up three priests. A blanket in La. Guerra I was be consideration law. If a Queiroz implying for the same money I'll take a quarrel day. What's your? What's your opinions? I May. Not like Cain and I never will. Pretty much. If. He's if you schools a winning penalty in the woke up final, you'll celebrate right. Yeah, it's been England okay. Good. At Jason Conway We've Fenton having favorable fixture to star is it to you Paul to go for free mccaw fake K. W. Pay Armstrong Richmond and Adams Mariah not long though interestingly didn't mention long there. Well Hazo seen it yet because long should be in that seven people. Well. We've mentioned England Adams Schwab. is in front of him. Well I I don't know who's who, but he's just too expensive whereas long was a foldable. Eight point, five. For the rest of my team. Golf. Would you recommend? Yeah, I'm looking at pictures now and I mean barring Tottenham Chelsea. That takes you up to gain week ten I really you know Crystal Palace Burnley not be a tough game will be a draw for sure But I got West Brom Evan Home Villa Newcastle will rampton be a draw So definitely, some potential there and I have in my drafts ended up with three Southampton Implies Myself which is still a little bit Warren Easily done. You know like you said, once she got McCarthy and things you could legitimately have. Woke up he is in there and I'm be quite happy but A. With gossip fordline I think things you pick It could be worse I mean you could have picked a femi- which. is now vital of food. I don't even know. Why? I think though that Reitman could be a good shout. Reluctant. I mean. Maybe. But if you're GonNa, tell you now. With favorable fixtures. No no you tame. Yeah. You know one plane. Yeah. Do you say how bad the defendant source there were all literally four point meal because I have no money. I'm your team is Netflix mass you need to sort out. Told you all had to create something like ten minutes just. So I could get into these league donated gain to. Oh. Yeah we're a lot for me. That McCarthy or Roy innovates a couple of defenders doesn't make me feel very good. I don't really trust. Saints. Defense. But attack wise. Armstrong of things a great show, it's interesting to. You know compare him to cite maximum for the same price point of finance and interest in bow their. Innings. Well, it's tricky rings because looked is X. Jay, which was a think seven eight on the season scored twenty two goals. Saw All signs point Swim River in back to school in a few goals less. Authors. See any reason why things can't carry on? Playing. Very well when the Premier League. Say in the first ten figure in the first nine fixtures they're. Easy got five or six goes an. Nobody else is going to school. Is Not. As if fly Armstrong is going to pop up with like five or six goes or Anyone or Redmond will pick up to like Redmond's not Bashar, six point five million. But. He's that offered price point where. So just below mid range, but you can't really get him in because you have five million for Su- JEKYLL. Someone. Horrible. Like not a bore even Stevens I call for Brian four million. So he's an awkward price point to get in 'cause you're gonNA have to sacrifice. One of the big is to game in and I just don't think he's worth it but. Be Wrong. What's your phone shy Adams because is getting club versa poll in the. Community. Yeah he's. Six million as well. Like is the humid- which If you're going to pay if you weren't dining gentler the double up awnings in Chatham's I don't think. So if you haven't gone innings and you're looking for six million Ford and you got to pick between Mitch and Adams, then I, think you picked Mitch because he's the only start like a you know in. Any decent at it. Think Sheridan's will get fair. Again a fair bit of game time like he did at the back end of the season, and during the restart Bor I don't think he's he's he's all patched awnings so. Often has a transfer into life. He had a couple of days performance, his post restart and people think he's going to do well. Compared to Mitch. It's no contest is no contest for me. But. Agreed. ATLANTA. Peo-. Great to hear that you Mrs Pay Saudi to continue put causing your first season since the season starts in September and August. What you think about gain kind spurs are free favorable opening fixtures and he's an easy graver. So we saw a talk show not. If, you can expand a little bit more for that specific question golf. Would you recommend? I think he put his August Hoodoo behind him lost Shit and think he got one in August last year. But not saying you know. Again. He's an easy ground downgrades. The problem you've got with that is you know you'll be sitting there looking at you team like one more week one week Cain one more week, and like now before you not, you'll be six seven weeks in Kane school two goals. Verners has gone crazy with a couple of hat tricks So yeah, you're to Miss Danton against chase inverness at timing Abraham's GonNa come in and that you know that's just the way FBI goes unfortunately i. think if I was going to pick between the two although vern hasn't played in the Premier League before we don't really know how he's going to perform and you know. I do have earner in from the star. And you'll save a million but give hurricane a couple of. Couple of weeks. And then try not to upgrade from verner if verners. Doesn't play starts blinking. You do the other way around. Yeah. Yeah. I agree with that space for is AIDS is interested in poet tomato do go kind you can dan great to anyone burr. A? Main. That alone isn't good enough for me to. STOOP SO I. Suppose you call me on respond golf but I thought you can actually but it's more for me. We taking money out for a hit this year. I'm probably why Leon thank you for that multiple away very good mug. Great Mug. Think he's pretty bad though the Leeann go you're mark but you didn't even get golf mark. Golf with pause what now? And also, it's very good prizes you wanted to paint. So picture among. Living the dream. This is all good. If you really want to pay. So Golf, we'll get your pencil. Don't worry. But Yeah All. Of Mon I currently Emma Team. I'm not sure GONNA go with this for the moment of what Sal, ammoniac and Obama Yang. Of compromise, my tame a little bit just to make transfers to deploy that much easier. So I mean game we to monitor Bruno pretty much a books transfer for me. I? It doesn't look goods and really fancy more show dynamic too. That could be hit so could be taken on out for hit. ME. Too. What's your folks are more now lovestruck a preview. By the way we'll show quick folks or Mon- I lot is not really been a consideration for me intil the blanks happened are saw thinking a could do it this way up just placeholder for Bruno. Yeah he he always has been. Ever. Since he moved from well, even when at Southampton to be for. More of an explosive player than like you consistent, get you to. Blank for two or blank for one. Then get one and then do blank blank blank and then get to you know he's he's gone too loud that bit choppy bit lot willion where Saleh's little bit more consistent. and. I you know I prefer Saleh over I if I was going to select. But Yeah you've got you know like you say Salam Manet and obeying you've got. ACRES OF SPACE? For Downgrade. Depends, what the rest of your team looks like. For me is. When I wouldn't take. My ought are only tight one of them but the. Main Lot more than I was always more interested in when it was half difference, we may do so a match each of a salary more A. Yeah for me when I was on I, always know as La Salle woods stay on longer mon- gets up I. saw a lot little things that Saleh's lot more in line for a so. Much people since begun salary over monae. Anyway. Was Save up for me to food a preview. FBI Robert. Is the season traditional fear such free for free. At least for the first season, I suppose that's a big question about it's up to you know FBI style or sticking tried and tested formulas and fears. Deep questions. Him and Clara like exercise in the brain I duNNO I. I've always been. An F. Bill Manager where? I play three strikers because they play from this other field. And it's their job to school so. Always. Give myself that opportunity to be out of play three strikers. It is slightly different A. Omen away isn't going to have much of an effect. I. Don't think I. Think Literally Stats, but there's a fair amount of away games in inverted Commas that will one body awaiting I think January star so I don't know. It's defaced. They've priced at different this year. And I think you've got I mean I've got all three of my back line on the five million. And I've got two more midfield under five million but they star again a stop for me. So is you have to adjust with the price in this year and I think I think we can exclude three, four three. even exclude to midfield at the moment. Just with how you know Kevin Debrecen Saleh buying a man Manai however price. So high all in the same bracket thing they've done that on purpose but. I think you can rule out anything at this stage until we get solve six, seven eight weeks into the season, and then perhaps have a little. A little rejig on full nation. But definitely go with the with what you comfortable with the with the Gaza price. If, you can make it work and. Mike at work and play it. Be Self. Yeah, I mean. I like the ICAN any sort formation. But E. SO roy cost to you know it free for free was the go-to lie was always the the play lies least from game one of every sees. Of tended to go for a lot more four, freezing, four, four toes. Racing they but. I have noticed it myself a really. Trust to avoid lot the five meal midfielder or the five and a half moon car and when I'm trying to I'm just trying to have any of those punny players on funding. Myself Lie looking at five to freeze and five free twos I'm not. A free five two's as well and I'm like it doesn't make me feel we'll feel comfortable reformations of I'm thinking to myself. Is that just me being stupid or is there something to be formations but stuff flat for free to the thing is a free for freeze if you have your defend, the can't come off unless it's four number defender. So in that respect is less flexible sapphire free to where any player can come on you know what I mean. So I Think, we can try and get away from me as. Traditional formations and if a four to free for free to work and others no problem. Agree. On Information to to to. My formations to shocking. He's just there and we'll get. You don't have eleven players normally that one guy four is it a full five? Mulia Nestle Formation Yeah I'll take quite like that. Property the why I'm going to have to guy because I've got our. The fold. The End of this paradigm meet your formation will be not four five one. Do say at Peo- Linguistic Lama. Why would you pick an untried VERNA versus innings or even Jimmy each to-to opposite each a decision swire. OPPOSITE EDGE OF IS OWNERSHIP. Over, ranked percentage think he means ownership an. Yeah Golf folks. OUGHTA. Because he's he's he's a goal scorer and story. You know. If it was midfielder coming into the Premier League and. Even. Of Got Martine but he's a magician like he's done it in the championship. This isn't this is somebody that just fallen off the fights of Mars coming into the Premier League and. I think. He's is good for fifteen hours season. You know if he gets he gets a two or three hundred bell early on E- qb At ten before Christmas and then. Go from there. And because of the way the midfield is priced, you can have you can have things you can have him as only Newton. So, you don't really miss an Alan it Jimenez is you know we've. Discussed through the community and probably on this before. Him and has will get you one go get you to go see want gay goes you know he'll. He'll pick away his season one, two, one, two, you know. A think verner. Is a little bit more explosive and he has a Hattrick in him. And the way that Chelsea play they crude John's is and I think he's an upgrade on Tammy. and. As much as I love Jrue and I do think he's a world-class player. He's an upgrade on his rusel so I don't think it's so much of a punt, especially nine and a half million. If he was ten ten off, then you start questioning yourself I think but nine and a half you can you know if if it doesn't work out of the three games, he doesn't play two of the three games, take him out and put humanism. We'll take him out and put things in. But not enough million of think he's. He's well priced to be in everyone's Wednesday for little risk. Yeah I mean he is. He's the most own striker in the game at a minimum and Jelly for. going. To be eleven point five La. That's hardly I'll think of him. A Full or did you guess late? Show say. A lot for me. When you pretty much hit now in the. Hague he saw that show attack or one in on that law or allies ferry. Appealing attack. Now, especially we've as will. I furniture. My mom I said this before actually lie even if it does get played on the wing lobby doesn't bother me a lot of is going to be around the goals my walk. There was a valid point which people say like this is unproven planners alone store car. I know he had a terrible World Cup when he was played up there but. died are off phillies much of a rich like you said the. Very reasonable and. You can move down two innings. On I'm very happy taking a gamble on Verner from game one and I wouldn't be surprised if he bangs in praise them and everyone starts flipping game in as well. You know I may not easy to happening. I mean, he's got Brian First game in a season then livable that tough on an West Brom Crystal Palace Southampton that you can't tell me. He's not going to school till three goals in the five games. I I mean. I think he I think he's going to and train of not left. My Name's since the game starts at Hands F. Peo- as volley the flying under the radar. Probably. He's I'm just looking at its fixtures here. West Brom Burnley City Westheimer Aston Villa asner leads in the first seven, their heels school for sure and he's he's he's ten million, his TSP's thirteen point, eight percent of the moment so. You know he's a Ni- differential maybe but you know he's he's proven in the primarily again I've tried to get him in last night by. Without. Taking out a binding. And I think buying now he's midfielders good for twenty goes the season plus ten clean sheet he's. midfielder. So now he's now he's just picked up an extra thirty points on the season. Moore's more than he had last season. So I I couldn't get body and I'd love to have audion, but I can make it works I. Yeah he's flying under the right my opinion. Yeah your heartbeat more high on him than I am of not considered him lot for a single second. For me. For one I'm always happy when I talk after a while supplies like only supplies or ways just feels bad for me. But sometimes, you do have to do it but. For me. I'm just wondering when he's old is going to catch up to far day waiting for free for four. He's start slowing down and if you compare these big boys verner off. Sooner go kind voday. Definitely, sooner, go aquar- owed involved they. Are soon ago human is an ings I've evolved a plus like you said of all the money got into midfield. COMREX raising for me. To, get him in but. Just like last season he absolutely bangs improves me rolling folks meets I mean, sorry, true. It could easily happen again I mean you direct body Really any into the high price payers. Might be one knows he's only might be Shire's Haipeng points the beginning of the season. By shop but what about alongs points going to get? Which knows love? Yeah long as well. Last question and I mean, it should at least give it to be fair. But Katie, Nick Fvo. Jimenez is consistent CEO. Furnace potential from get. Finished with one golf I mean you probably. Guns. My head is for me you. Burn will die although. There is a world we ought to go with them, but the minute live with the value taught up with. Mitch once you get your head around accepted Mitch, which took me a while because I didn't want to get him initially but once you look at ice fixtures, you realize ed any Fulham go is GonNa? Pretty much involve Mitch of come around with him I'm happy to have him sorry but. Three point six, the moment. Might Actually East your. Rich Sakes. Terrible. Much Long. Five Point Five She math to scramble. So half me where I may get him invest. That's a quick amy. I mean I just want to a lot of the I've got sterling the Martini Rossi hit banks first game week but Jeevan Cautious Cape Him. So I've got that money they're putting. Up. The there's the big. There's a big picture question. Will a people are GONNA do game week two and three to get sterling debris join Mashi. Al. Rashford Bruno back in that same. What we're GONNA DO THEY GONNA wildcard or you're going to save the money in your bank but then you're looking at adding lot two, million, your bank. So that's going to take a little bit resolve to be able to do that. is GonNa take massive hits everyone in. Some big big big picture questions that if you want to chat about. A move for it but. Yeah buffy took five hours long if he's China by that. But it is interesting because there's many different ways apply myself at a min- of compromise more game one team to easily. Mike Bring the in with free transfers. which may or might not be what way but you know you can wildcards. To, you could take massive hits. You could maybe get even just one in a bench him for the first week but a few ways am a and. I think having four of them from gaming wonder why well, obviously not having four of them. But like of some just being keen in terms of pricing, I don't want to be an absolute mess come. Sky Weight number two I'm thinking modulus Kate my most expensive one which is of say sterling as my favorite stop and they're not contrived fill. The other ones are warning. Over the course of a couple of weeks. For. You could do a well called if you need. Or have you thought about Every morning I take him out for stirling going to. Kandahar but yeah, I mean he's A. He's a possible solution up. Even. With that. Got All stirred in. Oman sorry. I. Don't know I just really need to sit down and have a good look think yeah. I mean lot sutter against Leeds guy meet one of things could be heavily captained. And if you're sitting there with sterling and now. We've probably long as captain for you're going to do very well. Posey long would never be the captain. But yeah, I mean like I said I just pays to give her about an era guys. So this is just a lot incur needs to be done. Yeah. Often are could agree with that. But Yeah is it for Awesome Cau- I guess older is left to. Go free religious strikers. And shop at which ones are good. which was shit. So first off they start with a guero come in at ten point five mill. Was She folks shock? He's a pay if. You found the answer. Nor point five million ago. Guerra for game week two. Zero. You know he hasn't disappointed two, thousand, nine, hundred, twenty, season, sixteen goals six assists eighteen nineteen twenty, one eleven assists seventy, nine, twenty, one in six assists sixteen seventeen twenty goals five assists fifteen, sixteen, twenty, four full in fifth like the guy's a machine. You if you If you've got ten million Voter Eagle Tenant, you've got ten and a half ago era and ten off, he can be set and forget he really could. Audie was law season at nine and a half lucky enough to have from gaining weight one. Off million left him didn't move him I. Think he's Whoa price to be a lot of teams. Yeah, lot for me off photos myself la overlooked initially because overseas injured la as and he wasn't really around anyone's tames. Prices came out shopping straight to Verna. Lot It was only way not started what research for the podcast when I was. Going to. He's probably Esguerra. They still where I live I, think if anything Jesus not really blowing people away as pretty much so many declare always first choice and if he's fit, fingers can be stalled. For about six, six seven, it's only get rotate AIDS on your decay Jim, and if we talk about explosive a law AQUAR- always. The taught man we own, I wake at five goals four goals. And if you think about as well. This was praised to Ian do not plan came in I was looking at the table with deploy in sterling I mean as soon as I know is guerra also you saving me where if you go where over sterling so for me game meet to see have wolves and A paper, we'll be using their transfers to bring unite plans before sabre or would not be surprised if gaming to everyone suddenly realize ladies Guero in that same. About you make any folks. Neo Acquires always gonna be a good shot really studio as long as he's fit. So but I just didn't feel like with sterling into boy Knob it just you just have to keep them. The Him Realistic Credit Limit. Even Queiroz milk cheaper than sterling. Look how well studying performed at the season. Another. He doesn't do griot around but. Votes from studying. You know I love him salaries copy in the. Doesn't have to pay. Yes I take your point. Well. By Up Jason instead of going crosswise a truck. Jay, there as well being as I say. Eddie interesting Jesus. Not really say he didn't set the world alight if it scored twelve goals. That may be but he didn't. At I think So yeah. An on and off in China Verna and I'm fully anticipate. Or been the number one pick for. Team. So it's an no competition for me. Really. Yeah. I mean unless. You're only going to consider as a grow gets injured. Love. No. Interest whatsoever. Cain we have talked about at least twice now. Anything else we want to mentioned on kind before we never talk about him getting. I'm interested in seeing same. He does like game week one I'll give him game week one and then. At, home against them So we'll see but not familiar, not ten in off get him in I wouldn't be able to get him in for the same reason I call volume at ten million just my structure doesn't work for him at ten minutes. Yeah Lot for me a auto lot spurs. He's pictures they only really came into my folks off to the city in United's blanks W- were announced but for me, if you WANNA spurs attacker Sawn for one point five mill cheaper fate not make sense to me. So if you WANNA go over Spurs car Sony meal. A little bit more money to play with Yeah I suppose. We'll keep going struck as we've already talked about. Voday. Call you I mean. That's all only comes down to just my structure. It just doesn't. It doesn't work. Yeah. We've said Offauq SOMBODY. House fixtures ain't bad. Our Bow Richarson. Eight million. Donation of not really considered him. Bob? It's one of those players lot. Was One of those players everyone missed because school. In the tough on fixtures? Will get a good one of every subsidiary blank can get rid of get rid of the game. It's one of those guys he school goes, but you just don't win. They're gonNA come for me each. I. Wouldn't I wouldn't choose for. Human Rings. Now. I'd rather pay extra a male. Yeah, I just. I would I wouldn't mind getting amid A. Think I'll find a morphism it. But you know looking at evidence fixtures well, the not the worst. Lebanese. They Tottenham Livable and ninety nine in the first twelve. the relatively. Difficult and then light game we two, three and four. He's got West Brom Crystal. Palace in Brian so I think again have. You know you you don't have. We don't have him as and that's the choice you've got a Mike and you have him for three weeks and see what he does. But in any locate ings is fish she's got in the same time period got Tottenham Burnley and West Brom. So, there's an argument that you could go regardless in for gaming two-three in full because he's just based fixtures. So. Yeah. No not for me. For ME I. Reckon any any of these guys like peeking your interest to get your team? It's how often even Charleston's stock is he? Didn't know that and. No I I mean these guys that you keep talking about the new Chelsea striker hurry seems might be get on him. With Sisal. Yes. But I mean paper. Like a poet, he's not proven but. Maybe you should watch from youtube videos I may if you want to not. Yeah may maybe it's just difficult. Isn't it? Because that pepper when he started, he was such a high price point nothing people all of God he's going to be so good and then he was quite quite as well. So I think it could be lot similar situation although of see that different pies in different positions, but it's just hiking that risk is in their in the playoff. Yeah Pepe was. One amazing as in the French league for Lil. Thought, it was that everyone others question marks pep I do primarily burn out in the Bundesliga Champions League. Is Much Higher Standard and he scored bags goes gets bags of assists blah. Account say artists concert world where he's that much of a flop on show to have a reputation for boy. I'm big name strike because he do turn out to be flops. Your world wherever and doesn't do well. Especially, with, Chelsea attack. You just gotTa take into consideration might not just be him. It's who is playing with. He's obviously adapting new team then players. What Pulisic Z. each from free with Verner Foil. And if they get have as well as unbelievable Jeff. Aren't you. We've said we kind of VERNA. War Bobby. For me at nine point five because for me. Always. Fully hoping for. Is Price. Coming. SHAPE. for him to step aside one of his worst season's. Disappointment I. Wish folks and Bobby. Who is going to come in and? just the White Knight play in when Salamone go past him on the overlap need drops drowsy eighteen yard line will between the penalty spot in the eighteen yard line on. Econo- kill Econo- kills himself as. A Fox in the box if you will he'll get tangos twelve goals, but for nine half million and it takes up Liverpool spot. If they get go in a new vertical trend who at seven and a half million, his his. Ownership is not one hundred percent design broken because he will out school. Every seven and a half million player and less in the game. Every season account believe they didn't price him eight and a half million or nine million. Yeah. Our automatically interested. To make it really interesting because he's you know twenty twenty assists this season what? Have you relief. The isn't price Haiku it'd be. Ever pilots in. Kind of guy being. As as bloody article. 'cause expensive. Main offing ninety percent of the players are reasonably priced. Who who's overpriced you think It's not. apprised. He's just like. You just want. Oh You WanNa leave good plays but they will sign much money uh-huh State Department should pay eleven point five same style in. They deserved price point but then when you do have people like In KATYA WHEREVER SEEKS MEAL? That's a lot for that of. Payoff offing. So, you bad but I mean. We're GONNA play. No know but that's what I'm saying if you even if you just want him as bench for La is a of money to sit in there doing nothing I feel the oldest strikers. Don't ever get a four point, five strikers. You don't even have to get on at five point, five upwards with. So I feel that. Way You. Struggle. Yeah Paul from Greenwood season. Yeah, who's now going to meet food which I don't understand. been played on the wing. Same Reason Obama things midfielder now. But. Yeah. My folks on Bobby. I am expecting a better season love. Is surely the bed and weight loss as nothing is GonNa get all the fingers are probably is it was always streaky open ill GonNa one zero goes flats, Hang Games score for fun or overtake of period. So that just didn't happen loss as in. A net Kwabena a period where he is on sheet foam but it's one of those ones I. Don't you don't put him in until we see our agreed. Until you've missed it. Or thoughts on would. For me. I'm not really seeing the interests love not really. Other but. Like I said like Mitch for me off of just come around him now, fully fully on the Metro Train Nah cy. Someone like woods. You know good Playa trickles along but. He's Lost Season is best is best goalscorer and season season in the primarily. Yeah. The thing is a lot of at interesting. We've actually as well because bonzes coming six MIL which often he's very reasonable. Actually did I've actually bones and a couple of ten KS but Bernie fine's such as like Clara. told me to stay away from bonds lot just come back from massive injury model even first couple games. And also, obviously, our expected opinion but other people say are. Coughing is an interview on signees It's GonNa be third fourth choice those lot. He's not going to be further fourth choice beyond blood a Vedra and j Rigas finishes him being humble but. In that respect law bonds would have always seem to have matched each other. So football to come in half moon MUCCI puffiness wash but woods. I think he's flying off the. Perfectly. Fine. But for me all Mitch more. To be six million is up against the likes of malpractice by. Halla. I'm just having a flick through it if I can find anyone else at six and a half million. Doesn't know. To be very the best pick out three in my opinion. Out But then six million you've got like Adams and Joe Lynton the other thing in a touch moussay. Antonio six and a half million. So. Strange. Little. Bracket. I think they'll be very few. Shine away from each of each to go and pick one of these guys up. I could be wrong but. Yeah, I mean Antonio. They interested of of of not had him in any of my troughs yet, but I think e could be it could be a pig. Oh. Is that right in Tanya yet? Well you to what you're trying to get. Well, you said everyone in my team is practically ofo, but he's IMA team. Okay, well done you've won. One priority at least play in. So you've done something right there. A stroke who you haven't really talked about. It's all yet. Affleck maybe we should be. Tony show norm mill. Tony. Tony. M was actually Montaigne Man Maxxie wasn't affordable. Thanks but. Seventeen goes in on assists last season. Classified as midfielder, which makes a difference. Of. Four percent. Less, my Nina had gone by striker and we can't even close the deal on. Sancho. So with to go out and stop three weeks before the season gone by striker. I'm Basan Ali's team she and the fixtures. Bows good as I get the ANDROID. POPs in game two and three, and then to Tottenham. But then Newcastle Chelsea see they Chelsea and arsenal when Everton in a in a block of three that gaming six and eight. is going to be tough book. Yukon. Ready just the the old fixed a clicker on. The official website. By think? Night are you going to drop? VERNA. For. Yes I mean the question. remains. I think the bigger question merely as lot which you know I I say it's all you're going to bring him because as Bruno Rashford. This Greenwood Unas Marshall. Personally. I'm person you know I'm happy with burner. If I feel more showers, the ones again, I'll do it ahead of game meat cleaver palace, but if Marshall goes off in gaming to. You know see I can see a Lotta people straight straightforward him. Well, by GEICO off. Before planks announce, which not guys will you looking at? poona. Does it. Sorry Yeah. I know if you can. Greenwood. Greenwood seven million. Is. An option in my opinion. But. He's not going to give you enough. Yeah. He scores every time he touches the ball, it would appear Seven million. He's GonNa. He's GonNa play think. because Dan James has done nothing. I'll be surprised if he's era stop the season if he doesn't go out on loan They can't fit in. So if you picking between James and Greenwood in united only gonNA soldier, then you pick Greenwood. have. Financial Nigga Rashford gotta play Poker and then you can take your pick out Tony Message I'm Fred and then you marsh L. Upfront. So Greenwood's it probably a safe pig but seven half-million. IS HE GONNA do? Enough FI fantasy team. I don't I think. So And then Rashford non and a half million. As a midfielder out stuck out in the wing. I think. You'd be better off. Guy Marshall nine million saving the point five upgrade in Greenwood. Design which. With that point five. would be the way all good But then Fernandez. Is makes them tick and he's on penalties. So I, think you have to have Fernandez has to have given the Broin in my opinion. Just a might FBI little baiser. Which? I completely agree with that. Completely. Agree. So you've seen the my yet Mitch. Dry Kaz the currently there golfer she picks in right because I m people. Who Do you have? Do you have? Is. Joining. With End Finance I. Like. If we're talking game, we one thing you're going to struggle. Ten donkeys you're only plan midfielder. Like became linked to on what? Just, plan. That Question like for every feel manage not just those yourself like what you're going to do to get them in because of the con have four of 'em sending same for gain weight one think you'd struggled have three of them in your for game we one you might get white with punk said podcasts at one or two but. That's that's the biggest test. This season we'll see good the FBI manages all this season with regards to that that strategy with a wildcard or hits all. Just through the one free transfer. Yeah, I'll think it bodes well for Hawk O. PL plastics I think casual GonNa Struggle with navigate that problem but. In that respect to it's good to have or things. MEXA game. Interesting. Well too because we've touched upon but I, think it'd be good to. Separate Man ings versus Jimenez. Who would you go with and what separates them? ings. For me. Because Polls long pause just because I think he's more explosive and. He's a little bit more consistent than Jimmy. So. I, prefer him and his I, think he's more of A. More. Of A box play more a box tiger. He's always in in and around it him as. In other tendency, just drop off a little bit and do a little bit floaty stuff outside the box. solid. INCA. Knicks it for is close me wrong but you can go either all. But you have to give them time ECON. You can't say all. Him In school fatigue ain't 'cause he'll score on in the third game. So, whichever one of these pleasure Goto because. You know I think one will have to be one is going to be entertained more the not. Afternoon give. Him Three. Be Happy with an off million. That's what your plan is. Occupied Gray for about eight for quite a bit. It's am Aflou AIDS sometimes about things in some him in. or I can't really separate room I was hoping for the fixtures to do that but even the fixtures lie. So wash like you said him and as especially. If you go with him and his game eat worms he's there is there for long term not you can't get rid of if you can't chuck him out if he the blanks in the first game weeks. The only separate. WEAVINGS is. Will we be as good as law season humanize of? Now is GonNa, do fifteen to twenty hours. It will get you warm return almost every Guy Manoukian trickling along ings on the other hands is he gonNa Cape? Up this quite one one of them will it be explosive will not be as good as before would injuries comeback in that respect is a more unknown but a thinking safe law things are safe. We've seen his finishing resume. We can do in a fully fits as a saint looking pre goods for me I mean going back on an earlier question for us a car someone asking these free site too much. Maybe you could just go with to human is I've rings if you want to be safer. Yeah. It'll be interesting to see what they do in the transfer window with the gauze to Hoiberg Google sees Tottenham and he really I think if they don't replace him to be big myths because he is the piece of the puzzle that just held them together in that midfield allowed j. w. p. to bomb on a little bit and and run. So if they don't fill that void with someone who`ve Off decent ability. Than you know they, they may struggle in that central air room which. In turn could lead to less opportunities rings but we're just a semis in right. You just don't know how that's going to affect them because hogue was a decent player in there and very much on the right and so went by. Just plugged away did his job an loud everyone else to play so it'll be interesting. A marches tool and silver wings. Off. Very quickly about Southampton Innings because a lot of people high on them we'll have to see you know we'll have to see. About. The CIO we've talked so much. Awesome. You could save a mill going over rich. And he folks. You could save mill go into DC L. but you have heart palpitations for like every time he's on the field. Could you just don't know what he's going to do? I don't no. That's Not. So in those last season now. And he said million. You'd probably take the in Ghost, seven million dollar story of million-pound-striker right. If he did the same again this season but he is. So. flaky. Is the killer. In my opinion, I just couldn't do it. Yeah. I mean he's he's not such much same really but. Thing he could he could possibly do. Offering if it was six point five being a lot more teams a lot more things but seven meal. Today. Fun Money Go go we've Aimar Mitch Mitch for mill more and Tony I- words. He just feels like a step till you fall. And nothing people are still feeling. The effects of his awful run a phone post race star because I did. Start. A quickly took him out buffing. We start with him in north east go to single GOSAR. Agree I. Would you reckon on feel? He's not really that Guy Tuesday. When Angelo? I kind. A Aideed Sean, he did look what good. But until he shows me again, you know he's he's no consideration for me. Why not get into Suppose this time of year but seven hall and seven any interested we think they start. Him and though they'll come onto the first few games though Saban out an o be a little bit of. Him Finding the right balance bossing let ill plump Verna to start with I think he's The one that interests me Is Bash sway at six million. A name that guy to move to another club so I can get him in the team. Because he's just a goal scorer. And I think he's very underrated and if he get a moved to a leads all you know because I've been talented with the being interested in if he can go there. I think six million. Him Over Anyone else at six men nothing are. Probably even pick him over Mitch but he has to get a move and I don't think I've got enough interested in spending anything more than that on either the other lads. Yeah. I'll think very point now for a lot of people thinking that we've brewster as well bruce or four point five meal currently Liverpool as bay linked with also. The bottom clubs so he can go to someone like that. They're still might be question marks the game saw him wherever he goes for a four point, five Meo Phoenix, your perfect bench for. Yeah because we'll get ten go get. A or Tangos in the season four point five, you can't really sniff because it saves you money to put your team elsewhere. Right all of a sudden. You've got one and a half million to spend somewhere else if you downgrade. Mitch. The Bruce. You know one off million across the back line. Of, course she goalkeepers or even midfield makes a big difference. So. Y-, Y NC wait, and see on the batch wait and see on brewster. And see what I end up hopefully the end up pretty because the decent talent. Roy Royal Main. About Patrick Bamford four point five mill idol tame. I team and Salah came round to. Mitch. Again there's not many people scoring goes for FA leads and I'm not leads expert die pretend to be. But yeah, that's just how I I. I think you'll get the service but. Are told myself round to. Mitch. So that was not. Yeah I mean. Bamford. Bio will accounts has been A lot of leads, fires of cities a very terrible finish off and a look to championship top scorers lost as. And for but same that won the championship. Around seven eight Gov for forty six games wherever isn't fantastic whereas Mitch Mitch Soaps Gaurav Twenty six or something like that. mean talking about that law thief mitzvahs comes out and software but you know I do think leads could be same at the very well. People Looking at defensive assets myself included but maybe tougher fixtures ruled the out but attacking Moore's If you all if you can only afford a four point, five minute Straw. Probably is still pick a bunch a menu for. Some West promised rockers lie Roberson corn. And Charlie Austin by night they get rotated. With each other. So, horse I and I also think Westbrook Tawfiq, she's as well so. For me a price point I'm trying to avoid lot for five for the midfielder's. Couple options like I said Armstrong Site Maximun. Maybe, maybe even Saka but for food wise. I. Actually off meal trouble in any shape striker's. Stand out to you amy apart from Shane. Lung. Santoni I might be this near. got a minnow seats votes marsh was well. A cheap striker's anywhere chip is now I know you've been looking at White Guy, you'd be annoying up. Jo Leinen Lot. actioning. Continent. She's A. Five point five. That's not one for me but each. Yeah I mean. Looking at the rest of a strike is now once you get to those price, points are thought really say anyone I'm lock into. Anyone else assignat you golf. I'm just. Really. You know we we spoke about volume. What's going to do and is he gonNA slow down INDIANAP-? Chose six million. of in during the restart yet A. Replay played a number game. Soden is not as if they're going an abundance, strike his jockeying for position there. So maybe You know spend six million next year when you can spend six million. Starring every week. New cost his interest in why Gal at six million, Fifty, eight points last year. Four goals on A. Lot of things start. skype. In by. Whatever. Struggling. Like Samaras six million, even possible. Was We talk about price strikers? There's one right. House he go six in an he's played. Twenty nine points one. In nine hundred, forty minutes of play hours six million. Some. Fact. He's got TSP of no point one percent somebody's going. which is a scam still we define that person. And then you not. Interested in st the thought of. West. Bromwich Alvin fans on their Louis striker rotation thing they've got going on five and a half million, five, hundred, million, five, million, oversee F pl can split them so it'd be interested in stable you know if Austin Stein. I didn't watch enough for them during the championship. So that'd be an interesting. Conversation, for the community somebody can step out and say. Yeah Austin's of neild on five off millions GonNa get you twelve goals in the season then. Could be it. could be a little sniffer. Part of the three I'd look. If we down the ball Mir. Yeah. I mean West Brom Tough Lester ever in Chelsea Science Burnley. Squad suffering a fixture sale I think we can. We can white and say, well, also slop. Begun Gang Week one with a Charleston is is going to pay off. Can Save. gravy. But Yeah I think that's pretty much older. Strike has covered, which is perfect timing because I'm us about a couple of flour. How's it going? How's The flower going? Good. Jiwa. Actually I mean he's slow but steady be honest I'm just I've had bookings Kuala weekend CY is picking up. Next year in things about. Of Slow and steady him in his congratulations to you both on your engagement I saw some as well. What? was done. But. Yeah. It's been a pleasure to have fantasy plunk appalled calls mini-league winner. Mice. What was your by the way in the end? One. Thousand Eight. Hundred Eighty three heavy guy. I'll tell you what? My boss Bova, punks like step. One was one eight, four, one while Moore's law seasonal pitiful I you picked me. Before. Been in the top two, hundred thousand. So in ten seasons so. Lot, listeners. Listen to, Manley. Golf. He knows what he's talking about now. Up, just change my game so. Yeah absolutely, pleasure may is a strike a preview. May. We'll get a preview and defend the preview dumb for the season's talks. A lot more to come get everyone in that mini-league again and Yeah Golfer have to win again if you WANNA come on again. I'll be at my own on important number one so I. Think we'll. Female Casey, say inside we can get back on up your. Thanks thanks for having me on the hopefully we've We've given some consideration to the majority of the Ford Ford's the community. So still to go to the start of the season, lots of tinkering to be done but yeah, I flee Give me some these thoughts. Yeah, that's it for this episode glass. Enjoyed it. I May. And he lost words for you. Speech, again, golf and good luck and be smashed again this season give me to help you too good. Luck to you. Appreciate it. Thank. God I'm pace.

4. The Bundesliga and LaLiga finally join the party!

"Everyone walk into the ninety extra time podcast. It's me rob again up to the fourth episode. I hope everybody had a great weekend. <hes> football filled weekend. I know i did. I watched a lot of games. <hes> followed a lot of games. I always do can't always watch all albums all catch him on my phone or the updates notifications. <hes> bundesliga started this weekend so did lita <hes>. The gert had a game game this weekend <hes> but i'll get all that later i want to start off with the i guess the biggest game of this past week <hes> the uefa supercup up <hes>. I definitely did not expect <hes> for liverpool to <hes>. I have a hard time with chelsea like they did. Chelsea chelsea came out <hes> wanting to win this. I mean after they had their embarrassing loss to manchester united the week before or a few days as before. They definitely seem like they had something to prove and to me. It seemed like a controlled most of the first half <hes> both both teams had a a couple of chances. <hes> you know fellow american. I seem mentioned him on every podcast but christian pulisic <hes> he had a really good opportunity community he actually did score but you know ended up being off side <hes> but chelsea you know. They really really controlled that game. You know jerus- had the first goal the thirty six minutes and they were just they were just playing well. It seemed like it seemed almost like chelsea really wasn't there to try to win that they didn't. They felt like they had nothing improve. <hes> they were just going to be playing the game you know just because they had to and then the second half was a completely different game once for menial came in <hes>. It just seemed like the team was just they were just playing different. I mean three minutes. After the start of the half <hes> you know saudi-omani saudi-omani scores and it just seems like he hasn't taken a break. You know he had the africa cup of nations and he had a couple of days felt like to get back with the team. I thought he was going to have a little sluggish start but <hes> he definitely proved. That's not going to be the case for him. <hes> you know for me. No set him up <hes> so money you know. The first goal was good. You know the second goal. I thought was was was definitely better. It was a it was a classic money type goal. <hes> didn't think it was going to end up going into extra time like that but <hes> i thought got it. You know chelsea was going to win it too. I did pick chelsea just because i thought they were when we're gonna come out a little bit stronger but then you know winning the extra time and individually went into penalties and <hes> yeah liverpool ended up winning it so they are basically after winning the champions league. They are earthy super champions of europe. I guess i don't know what you call the the team that wins the europa league and then wins the supercup because is there really nothing special. He won a second tier cup and then they won the super cups. I don't know what you would call them but they definitely wouldn't be the <hes> the super champions of europe all right so that was the supercup decent game actually rushed home to watch that game. I was in munich that day had to drive back here to stewart. <hes> got at home by five minutes before the game. I was driving. My wife was not really happy about how fast i was driving home but you know got the autobahn. There's no speed limits certain sections. I got everybody home safe and we all got to enjoy the game all right so moving onto <hes> matchday two in league the french league. I'm going to go over every game. <hes> on friday we had a li all hosting on gear and <hes> leeann i mean this is the second week in in a row where they just destroyed the the competition. I mean they won. Six did nothing. Dan bailey had two goals. Memphis pie had two goals so you know i mean it. It's obvious that they probably going to be the team. That's going to challenge <hes> this year last weekend. They beat monaco. Monica was down by a man you know for the majority of the match but <hes> this week i mean they got a clean sheet and they put up six goals on on their opponent. <hes> saturday day not an marseille had a zero zero tie <hes> than to lose in dijon to lose one one dijon zero <hes> see bordeaux and montpellier mount pelly one though one <hes> bhutto actually had a goal in the ninetieth minute but <hes> it was disallowed by by v._r. <hes> it was a kamera i mean it seemed like this weekend was a lot of goals across all the leagues that are playing. There was a lot of goals that were disallowed by by v._r. <hes> let's see mets three monaco nothing <hes> this is monaco's second loss in a row. I mean at this point. You know based john how they looked last year. I mean monica is they. They may get relegated this year. It's hard to believe that a few years ago they were challenging for the league one title but uh this year doesn't seem like it and also for the second game in a row <hes> they had to play with ten men <hes> reuben aguilar thirty thirty four. Th minute got a red card. There was actually a lot of red cards in the french league this week the next game on me on one lil zero <hes> <hes> it's another game with a red card lil dot a red card in thirty nine minutes so they had to play with ten men and timothy <hes> you know fellow american <hes> he came he came in the eighty four th minute and didn't really do anything obviously team walks you know obviously though they were down by korea a man for the majority of the match two-thirds of match <hes> then we have <hes> nem one niece to both of these teams got records in this game two yellows that <hes> turned into a red problem martinez for them and then facing coli for niece <hes> but you know it essentially balanced out <hes> even though one even though they they played with <hes> with ten men for the majority of the match but <hes> nemesis not. They're not a good team. Nieces is not bad but <hes> yeah so yesterday sunday we had sent n._t._n. One amp arrest one <hes> him and strasbourg played lead to a zero zero draw and then the the shocker of the week as far as the french lease you had ren at home aw print to para sandra man one <hes> that was a shock to me a p._s. G went up after kamani scored in the thirty six minute and you would think they would just cruise to <hes> to victory but you know they. They got shocked. <hes> karenin scored a goal shortly before halftime and then again shortly after halftime they came out and scored a goal and then was just not able to have any scoring opportunities opportunities <hes> it's shocking 'cause i'm not suggesting that i thought was going to run the league completely you know without any you know draws or losses this season but they are the best team in the league and i definitely didn't think that they would lose a game. The second game of the season to win ball teams <hes> so i guess we'll see how they are as the weeks progress. I'm sure for them. It was a shock <hes> yeah. I don't really know what else to say about autho <music> moving onto into the premier league matchday to arsenal to burnley one <hes> this is the second game in a row where our <hes> arsenal were missing <hes> missing or zeal and <hes> a couple of weeks ago they were together in london in some guys tried to carjack them some knives on them. <hes> they've been some threats against them ever since then <hes> with the team in a believe the the f._a._a. Have stepped in you know said that there's no credible threats against him so these guys have sent their spouses back to germany or to live with family or whatever but <hes> it it obviously hasn't affected arsenal yet <hes> two matches to win six points lock scored thirteenth minute <hes> and then actually barnes scored for burnley in the forty third and then for the second game in a row a bamiyan comes in scores the winner this week it was in the <hes> the sixty four th minute so <hes> doing pretty well. <hes> you know hopefully they can. They can continue it. <hes> i don't know if you guys saw but and <hes> there's a highlight of pepi putting a move like this i. I don't even know how to call it. <hes> he basically just did a stopping to change the direction direction and a nutmeg on a guy. It's all over youtube. You can find it on twitter. <hes> probably one of the better moves that i've seen recently <hes> you know obviously scored the as a little bit of an impact on the team <hes> so you know we'll see what they do. In the next coming weeks. <hes> next match we had <hes> esa villa one born to <hes> brighton hove all being one west ham united one teacher rideau actually scored the goal for west ham united in the sixty four th minute <hes> everton one for zero north city three newcastle one and t mu cookie is it's how you say his name. He had a hat trick in that game. Four nord city he scored thirty seconds sixty third and seventy fifth minute and then josh elvy <hes> scored for newcastle castle <hes> southampton one liverpool to <hes> again. <hes> saudi-omani scored right after halftime said the sky hasn't slowed down since last season. I mean he played the entire season. Last year. Left the team i went to <hes> the african cup of nations you know almost won the game or almost once the cup <hes> with senegal and now he's back in the premier league so in keep in mind they also also that they played on wednesday supercup <hes> robert roberta for meteo scored in the seventy first minute and as i mentioned it was <hes> southampton one liverpool to <hes> one of the shocks i guess maybe not for tottenham fans but <hes> manchester city to tottenham hotspur to <hes> they actually again. This is another you know far disallowed goal. <hes> gabrielli sues had a goal in the ninth minute taking back <hes> because v._r. But rame sterling in surgery girl scored for commissioner city and then lamelo and lucas moore scored for tottenham so <hes> that's big for tottenham you know coming <hes> out of the the <hes> automates the city with point <hes> is big and i mean that's gonna that's gonna be big later on for both teams you know especially if the title races as close as it was last last year potentially losing two points you know for manchester city that could hurt them down the road. We'll see i mean liverpool's doing well and now mantis is he's gonna be behind them in the table so <hes> let's see yesterday we had sheffield united won crystal palace zero chelsea one lesser city one so <hes> frank lambert gets his first <hes> point as manager of chelsea and tonight. We have wolves against manchester united that that actually be a good game. <hes> wolves had a pretty good season last year against the top sixteen ext teams so we'll see how they tonight. I'm actually watch that game. <hes> <hes> <music> okay moving onto lalita who started the season on friday with the defending league champions winds barcelona at athletic bilbao. Now i know i definitely <hes> predicted addicted barcelona to not only win this game but also the league which i still think the win the league but <hes> i don't know what happened in this game <hes> athletic goodbye i just i don't know maybe i gave it home. Crowd was behind him. Barcelona didn't play well. <hes> i mean in the the goal from athletic bilbao l. came late in the eighty ninth minute <hes> but they stunned barcelona and one one two zero which is pretty crazy are saturday. We had <hes> celta vigo one real madrid three <hes> this game i i started to watch like the i i think i watched the first fifteen or twenty minutes and kareem benz the first goal of the season for a real madrid and the the thing that popped out to me when i look at the highlights later was that look a modulus got a red card which surprisingly i think this might be the first time i've ever seen this. That bar actually corrected in rescinded the red card <hes>. I guess that's one benefit of var you know there are a lot of negatives with goals getting taken away ridiculous penalties at times but <hes> luke ahmad rich you know he had a red card rescinded so as i mentioned that game was a cell daego one real madrid the three <hes> next game we had valencia won re also c._o. Dot one so the game of the red card <hes> <hes> next game we had my orca to ibar one <hes> we had villarreal four out out of four extremely high scoring game <hes> santi cazzola you know he used to play for arsenal. I remember you playing when i first started playing fica komo back in two thousand ten two thousand eleven <hes> i could always seem to score free-kicks huntington's allah <hes> next game. We have <hes> lego niece niece zero. Sooner one louganis almost had a goal they headed a disallowed in the sixty first minute and this was another a game with another late late red card <hes> yesterday sunday we had <hes> alvis one levante zero s bahn you'll have yet to <hes> real betis one riyal via <hes> lead a numbering that to <hes> real betis had a red card early <hes> within the first i ten minutes so they they played the whole game with ten men and then we had a madrid one guitar zero both teams. He's had red cards in the first half was no you know advantage for either team. I think maybe three minutes that <hes> athletico was able to enjoy enjoy having one extra man and then load. He got sent off with his with his red so <hes> the first week you know i mean i guess we expected to see real. Madrid win expected to see barcelona win and that didn't happen. <hes> athletico madrid you. You don't think they're they'll probably <hes> they'll definitely be the top three. I mean i don't really see <hes> those top three teams remedy barcelona athletico <hes> <hes> falling out at all and anybody challenging them <hes> but i guess we'll see you know as the season progresses. I am interested to see how barcelona response to to losing that game. Though i mean that was that was tragic. I don't know i don't know what would happen with them. <hes> <hes> <hes> okay bundesliga <hes> via munich started started off the season hosting hertha berlin the defending league champions <hes> but the final score was by munich to hertha berlin to rubber hausky head <hes> two goals <hes> yeah i mean he actually had the equalizer. <hes> barn was down. I didn't watch this game. I did see <hes> you know. I had the notifications on my phone that i was getting and i was actually shocked that at home season as an opener that byron munich was not able to to get three points but <hes> you know we'll see i mean i still think the buying is going to be the dominant team in the bundesliga this year. Obviously they'll be challenged by bruce doorman. Which is you know every season. <hes> i also think that <hes> rb leipzig is going to be up there too but if <hes> buyer continues to stumble like this and give up points <hes> just like last season well i guess early part of last season. They're going to have a difficult time being at the top of the table and coach nico kovac. He's always on the hot seat so embarrassing you gotta be perfect or or you will be out. <hes> <hes> see i game on saturday was a buyer liver kuzin three paderborn to paderborn returning to the bundesliga by liberal coups in his you you know they're always in the top. I would say top six in the bundesliga there. You know consistently a good team. <hes> then you have borussia dortmund five alex berg one <hes> jin sancho markle royce both scored in this game. <hes> <unk> alcazar had <hes> really early goal third minute and then he scored one at the hour mark <hes> yeah but i mean the had absolutely no issues whatsoever. They were at home augsburg. They're not that great of a team <hes> and as i mentioned they're always challenging for the bundesliga title so i mean they started off the season basically finishing where they were last year. They lost christian pulisic. I was seeing what the chelsea but <hes> you know didn't seem to matter whatsoever. <hes> next excape got rid of bremen one for two or three. I actually watched this game and <hes> vertebrates a-and i mean they used to be. You know german powerhouse but <hes> now it just seems seems like they are. I don't know maybe it's just a one game. It's flukey. I guess it was first game this season for tuna duesseldorf. I mean they were in the second bundesliga a couple of seasons ago <hes> but obviously they stepped up on the road got three points <hes> fribourg three mites zero. Oh wolfsburg to clone one <hes> simon terada who used to play for stewart <hes> scored that late goal for clone in the ninety first minute obviously wasn't enough to help them. They trailed the entire game. <hes> bruce gladbach zero chocolate new fear zero <hes> last night we had eintracht frankfurt one huffing heim zero they actually scored a goal the forty second minute but it was disallowed by var- <hes> and then we also had union berlin making their bundesliga debut at home zero red bull rb leipzig for <hes> you know they almost had a fifth but <hes> use of pulse and had a goal disallowed by of are these are two teams that <hes> actually are in the former eastern part of germany union brilliant being the east east berlin team and obviously leipzig's in the former east <hes> yeah i guess they just completely completely spoiled any hopes that union berlin had of getting any points out of this <hes> you know but they have such loyal supporters that <hes> is not going to matter. They're gonna support them regardless. I actually see them having a decent season. I think new berlin may stay up this year. They may not get relegated but it'll be interesting to see as as i mentioned the first episode i'm looking forward to seeing the berlin darby hertha berlin and union berlin. That'll be great for the fans of their great for the city. <hes> just hope that the rest of their games do not end like this one did <hes> <hes> <music> okay transfers says i talked about last week. <hes> there was a rumor that mario batali ali was going to go to <hes> the brazilian league which you know i've never seen before seating player. Go from <hes> a player in the prime. I guess or you know somewhere you know. They're still able to help the team win. I mean we just saw danny alvez's. Go <hes> from barsa to sao paulo but <hes> uh he was going to go down to the brazilian league marwell telly but instead he decided to stay home or not stay but go to his hometown club brescia <hes>. They're not really a not a good team but they're not a great team. I think he'd probably have been better off staying in france or actually executing getting the move to brazil <hes> i guess this will help him as far as national team selection but <hes> i don't really see it helping him any other way <hes> alexis sanchez even though the transfer window in <hes> england has been closed. I <hes> apparently less alexis. Sanchez manchester united working a deal to try to get him to inter milan. You know he'll definitely get more time. <hes> down inter- <hes> lukaku just went down there. This may be inter's way of you know possibly sublimely challenging you venice titles here <hes> i don't really see it but <hes> you know if not definitely helped them to secure a champions league spot for for next year <hes> because the english transfer windows closed even if the deal is completed <hes> alex sanchez won't be able to move move until the earliest when the transfer market opens on january first and now the never ending drama of the summer as far as transfer answering go neymar so neymar is still in paris but he has not played in their first two matches at all <hes> and now another transfer cotino has been loaned from barcelona to buyer munich now he had been you know part of a potential deal <hes> player-plus-cash from barcelona to paris in order to get taymor <hes> back to barcelona but now the continuous gone i mean he was the main player made dan bellies name was thrown in there too but now that he's gone and <hes> byron actually have an option to buy him at the end of the season for one hundred twenty million euro. I really don't see name are leaving leaving paris and going to barcelona now. There is still a possibility real madrid could step in <hes> you know they still have you know some players players. They could get rid of hamas rigas pops into mind <hes> ended they could send a paris with a player plus cash deal <hes> but we'll see i mean like i said neymar has not suited up this season for paris <hes> two games into the league all season. I don't know i mean the way that is looking though i don't know. It seems like he's gonna stay. I can't really see him moving non to real madrid. He's definitely are going to barcelona now because even if he did go to barcelona. They're still they're still i. I just don't see it happening. Where's he going in a play it if he goes to barcelona. Real madrid does seem a good option but i don't think they have that kind of money. They're not really trying to get rid of that many players. I don't think in paris would take gareth bale. <hes> you know because he's demanding too much money in wages. I mean not that they don't have it but <hes> i i just i just don't see it happening <hes> yeah and like i said continue going to byron <hes> <hes> they probably could have used him this past week. I'm assuming he'll probably suit up next week for biron. Guess we'll see <hes> this whole transfer things. It's pretty wild <hes> <music> all right a couple of things. I want to cover before i and the show for the week <hes> this past <hes> <hes> wednesday night we had the company honest cup which is the m._l._s. champion from the previous season against and the winner of the batufa enclo- sura a championship in the mexican league. <hes> this is is the second year that they've had this is sort of like a supercup. <hes> you know because you know the format <hes> and it's a one off but this year it was atlanta united and actually hosted club america from the from the mexican league and atlanta one. It was atlanta united three club america to and immediately after the game was over <hes> i immediately started hearing reading people saying that the m._l._s. this is closing the gap between <hes> the m._l._s. end the league mex- the mexican league <hes> i. I think it's too early to you. Say that while this is the second year row that a <hes> m._l._s. team has beaten the mexican representative last year <hes> toronto f._c. b._t._u. <hes> but this is a one off game <hes> i think it's entirely early too early to say that the m._l._s. getting to legal mix <hes> one of the main reasons i say that is because of the conquer caf champions champions league so the tim he's league at least for the last. I don't own six seven probably longer seasons. <hes> has not been won by nationalist team. The mexican excellent teams have just completely dominated that so until we have a <hes> a recent m._l._s. champion for the concacaf tim you can't really say that the gap is being closed between the m._l._s. and <hes> league mex- <hes> yes. I guess you know the the emily teams are getting better but i wouldn't necessarily <unk> necessarily say that they're closing the gap. <hes> united's a good team. <hes> you know they won in the league last year on the first season in the league <hes> yeah but i it's hard to say whether or not club america actually took this game serious yeah. We'll see <hes> also this past weekend. My team the f. b. Stu gert they hosted and <hes> saint pauli. Now there are team from the hamburg area. <hes> say probably was a team that i used to. I wouldn't say i supported them but i it was always following them. <hes> 'cause i like to see darby matches in leagues and because they're so close to hamburg <hes> you know having that in the bundesliga <hes> you know it'd be nice to the fans there <hes> they always seem to come so close but they'd never finished in the top three top two in the second bundesliga automatically magically get promoted in the third place against the third team from the bottom in the bundesliga. It's basically what happened is to last year <hes> but but still gert <hes> actually won this game saint pauli score go early in the eighteenth minute and cigar was trailing <hes> they scored in the sixtieth minute and i thought that the game was going to end in a one one draw but <hes> gonzales he had a couple of here hit this one specific time he had this really really nice chance in the box <hes> he had the defender beat he had the goalie you know second guessing himself himself and he's trying to position the ball and he actually somehow bounce the ball off of his standing leg while he was trying to take the kid completely with the ball <hes> and i after that happened. I thought oh well games probably gonna end and you know somehow ninetieth minute. He redeemed himself. Even though i still kind of blame him last year for stewart actually even getting relegated because he was offside when a lugo <hes> you know would have scored a goal that got disallowed because offside but whatever this last season <hes> but he ended up <hes> scoring ninety th minute game ended two one so as of right now stewart. Is you know they're doing pretty solid. They've got <hes> seven points in three games you know after they drew with heidenheim time and you know they're doing pretty well right now. They're sitting in second in the second bundesliga and if they finish the season there i will be happy you know if they win. It would be happy to but i just want them back in the bundesliga so yeah you know every week you guys something about the f._b._i. Gert so that is going to end the show. I hope you guys have a great day. Thank you for listening as always you can.

Di Maria Dismantles Real Madrid

"Welcoming solicitation of ESPN AFC. I'm Dan Thomas Allen Moreno Craig Burley and Stevie Nikko the Frank Leboeuf is also with us of course eight Champions League Games. Today I think without doubt the standout result was in Paris g bidding round Madrid by the three goes to now. We'll talk about pants gee. Maybe there on the big story has shoney's how terrible row Madrid were yeah real. I mean properly Hamadan particularly in the middle of the park. The middle of the park in the bottling Ram in Madrid was just absolutely hopeless space. It was a full day for PSG was incredible. advantage what rate in the middle of the park and protect tecla from addressing gay variety was excellent performance of de. Maria Caldera go unnoticed his belt. They can afford to bring chip. Mosey on the left hindsight bragging yeah we talked about Saddam. Buck and they're not N. P. S. G. We're talking about is fostered and how all the big styles will still there was about cajoling and getting the best the managing and keeping them happy and then getting structure this is a different ballgame altogether an on he has got a huge job and he's just reminded had no. Cavani or happy. They're both injured. Name are suspended as well. It's going to be so much more than three three nell staving Madrid at all and that's the surprising thing you know Real Madrid defensively and their own leak but tonight it will absolutely atrocious you know and I'm I'm sorry who yes you can look at the middle of the park and they were horrible and they didn't stop anthem from getting to the bike lane but as a defender offender the comes a time when you have to do your job and not one of them. Did I mean you talk about not making a challenge. You talk not step a note. He's talking about dropping to death life. I mean you name it. They go too wrong. I mean every decision. They made the stop positions. I mean I could go through A-to-z of defend end and they got this wrong tonight and I'm talking about people like Veron who you expect to be the leader by the military was embarrassing in my opinion but Veron wasn't far behind him and I don't remember the last time this guy made a save actually meant something so looking at team. There's not one thing you so you can be positive about not one single thing you look at eleven on paper. That's a good team isn't it yes and but that's the thing that we just have to to get used to this. I it doesn't matter what the names are. It doesn't matter the uniform that they're wearing you. Take that away and this was the performance of a mid table table team that struggling with administrative issues. They're not paying their players. There is turmoil in the front office. That's what they look like a team that had add. They're focused somewhere else other than out on the field they did not compete never mind close to somebody and try to tackle with. St was alluding to bidding even get close to try to challenge. Oh and somebody this was a good old fashioned that side whooping where peers jeep was first to second to everything and third to everything and then after that came came Gareth Bale trying to make an effort great an opportunity which was really perhaps the only player that you could say maybe he was trying to do something out on the field. That was useful. You taking was was even playing and we already address midfield. We already addressed the back line and saying you think well. Maybe they attack you talent. It's going to take over. No has are never I saw the game Gareth Bale couple. Thanks not so much Benson nowhere to be seen overall across the board in every facet of the game. Real Madrid were very very poor and nowhere near the level that you expect this team did not compete and they look disinterested first time in five hundred sixty four matches at Ramat haven't had Shantung and you've got to but because they were correctly yeah bye bye ah the Var correctly so I was woefully no-one Vira spoiling the game and breaking the law breaking the law and that's what happened so yeah notion target which is a pretty appalling fit does on an no. He's not. He's not for but again. Go back to the point. You've got and this played. He's played this season. You Go Gareth Bale. It is a happy camper and not an environment and the managers not happy we on the same we Hamas Casamayor Asamera who can't get rid of the field as you once did you go oz out. WHO's not quite fat can help you defend those. Oh I'm I'm. I'm not convinced to start the season an end last season up perfect killing of us yeah table who we played in goal today uh-huh too and we can have frank leboeuf in the background cocoas Frank pse in a moment but first you'll take them around Madrid. I think it was it was really poor. Not Surprising facts are wasted that Real Madrid after winning all the trophies especially the three-times Champions League mostly they were the cycle Cole and from Foreign Fiorentino Perez and the coach came straight after they should have changed. I knew if they should have change inch Alpha the dressing room to make sure that the the motivation to keep on winning something something and in fight when you see the players running they don't have the stamina. They don't have any more character to to go and fight. They not in fact hungry enough to keep on working hard and that's the main problem. The hub love talking about the Defense Veran is always been in the shade from US and without Romo seemed that Veron is lost and and and we saw that tonight but what about the midfield zone I mean the players who are there. They really well nowhere. Near it's comparing to gave garate of Makino's they work so hard they were off and the the kid them in the midfield on when you win the war and fight so very very disappointed wounded. Bud Real Madrid and not very surprised about it. The Dan Frank has he got it with him in him to get this sorted. This is the lowest this is without doubt. The biggest challenge is had during his coaching career. Canny turn it around hasn't got what makes awfully awfully yes I want to. I want to believe that they would be able to change everything but he's going to be a hard business. He won't Pug by these and get it get him. I know you want to keep log Madrid and some others there's but it doesn't work. He works that he doesn't want like bail care. Hamas like cool and but he he wanted to get the job I mean. Sometimes you know he's very lucky in a way that he works so hard that the guts results but it it was positive the the old way but now yes to maybe see the dockside of of coaching and and try to resolve all the problems going to be. It's GonNa be difficult but hopefully for him. I wish him the best and he's going to do it. If you wanted a clear picture of what this game was all about and you didn't get a chance to watch it you just watch the third goal where Vernon and Mooney playing keep away in round talking box and there are no Real Madrid players anywhere anywhere to be found they lose the battle in the ball in a bad area and nobody recovers from makes an effort to actually challenge you have to outside bags for PSA plane the ball to each other here you go ahead and finish it and nowhere near to be found. It was just embarrassing three plays what run the ball off many many of us were watching the kids in the playground really just go into the medal balloir. June it was parked around the corner into against one surprise. If Not Josie Marina space somewhere ready all with the pressure and you know being Madrid how quickly it can tell us he's very early of course but it will come quickly results downhill and he has been very vocal. Marino is relationship with Peres and how it would. They love to go back. There and I don't know this is definitely misjudged. He's come back obviously thinking I can. I can sweep cadet clean and and get a new Real Madrid but what he's gotten his hands. No is please don't resort good enough relief milital. You've you've got players like Rahm Pasta best and then you don't WanNa be there like bail and Hamas so you know sometimes not actually the courts can only do so much but we've you got a group of players when too many of them just are not interested. Don't want to be their past the best have you used to live up to the name of Real Madrid with a bunch of players there yeah but but they don't want to be arguably don't want to be there because he finds he'd fast relationship Rodriguez but because I know they said Jason would bill that was a personal thing between manager and player all these previous Tameer when he's he's fast tenure comes bail still there. It's still a problem for him and he was very open a barrage. I want to go it didn't happen. Go back awesome so you know he he was going to be so public about then he ought to make sure Perez was GonNa get bill and as we know because we discussed the Gallup Bailey's advisor advisor said no we will leave under attempts so in some sense. He's he's forced this. I'm not saying bad feeling this relationship with addressing. We have no east go. No Marcello ran off suspended no moderate. Ch- Is there an argument to say well. You know inevitably evidently rammed. You're going to struggle 'cause they are missing. Those players know fine sir high quality players but those guys have been balling out. None of those guys have been playing very right. Well so fine. You take those out of those guys out of the picture well. What does that have to do with the competing. What does that have to do with tackling somebody was to do with getting close to people what does that have to do with defending while does that have to do with actually winning something that matters on the field in this game they were nowhere near nowhere near five yards away from every player on the field whereas whereas whereas Marikina big close to the ball they win in the ball and big on transition because ps two the best place or the three front players. Were the team so you know it's. There's no excuse for Real Madrid so maybe a one off and this first. This group stage in this league competition bought. They've got severe severe at the weekend around. June was rammed big test the season well at twelve minutes in. Let's give some love to hey. Shall we frank conversely doom and gloom going into this game considering the absentees that we've already mentioned but a great result perfect performance. I think how various a star of the show was fantastic. That was just because of future as you said three stalls. AWAREN- there and the way they played the way the play together and he's pretty rare around where we see more individuals than Tim walking together at the beginning of the game was really wondering why to wanted to put Martinez in the midfield on input. Keep him be the central as central defender but we the result I mean the worked so hard the three players so Makia game vera t to get the ball back that he's one of us that it was a very good tactic form from Terrell on top of each Rod Sarah and Jim Aria working very held he county giving his best tactically cle- working very very well and and technically as well giving the to Nazis post goal so everything went perfectly for the full squad because they worked together and the never give up so it's a perfect evening from team. We get lots of hoppy to carry on playing nine. That's so gay was super today and we feel well. Josh much you know all we need to do is Marshall Overrun on a fight that mid three of Real Madrid and you've got three players near ags and move him on Kenya's again was it was a great move uh but for Diem area to play dead. I'm sorry I've criticized this guy. All the we leading up to the Champions League today short. He has real quality. I wonder whether he's GonNa. Produce often offers a good night for them to space. It was a folded up. She'll advantage but you know. I don't want to rain the fire but it's a great performance but this is what do they do. They can produce some of the best performances the bustle and a game uranium mining Atlassian traveled eleven plasma cigars then go home and bottler the even within beg styles they can push the bank performances but somewhere down the line unless they can prove US wrong this team when it gets to the nets aggressive competition are gonNA lose stomach for the begin and the NOCCO and people can say well. It's not wrong because history will prove approve attention. That's correct so they have to find the consistency of that performance not one of up and down roller coaster where the button the team and then folded the second leg 'cause. I ain't going to get them anyway. And the thing is frank. We only really know that towards the end of the season one we yeah yeah. We thought we all know that is going to be harder. The of the season what where would be name all. I mean if you're getting on again again. For the third time in three years is going to be difficult to to win something but I think that Craig said if they find the stability and the consistency assistance club needs in terms of performances they can go far because they have the talent for that. I mean Steve was mentioning the last has goal where the left BOC and the right by finishes the job meaning they can work all they can physically defend very well L. altogether and on top of contracting and giving what did the shorter so everything would perfectly well. How's it going to be during the season and we don't know and how it's going to be at the end of the season well. Let's the big question mark. Because of course the chimpanzee is is. It's only one team we can win. It and the more consistent team was going to win it. That's for sure what do you do when you think about fueled operated with Makino. San Hose really a defender but complained complained there and then you go to real what horses and variety and address again and variety combustible and gays tidy but he's a worker then and you're squeezing out three out Cavani Neymar in bobby so you go it county and then Di Maria five there's going to be on the bench only Demon Cardi without e completely what and big games and then you talk to him and put him on the bench gunning because what they'll do what we're doing league as the go back to what they do is Tom. NOP sometimes names and be a little the next week will be obviously today's long when three nil and all of a sudden they get a big game then we'll see more than a second. Why don't you play got three that he did against Real Madrid but then then you just thrown three and that haven't played together for four moment. How are you going to so have you. Have you supposed to get consistency. You Send de Maria. You say oh please the big games doesn't he has been playing in in league more of a central role more as a midfielder one of the middle three rather than a guy out out in the wing or underneath the striker so if it is pointing the one when it comes to games and that's the master of Coveney's for of embodied for a theme arrears then he's going to play them and then not message the mall the one thing as as you have done cushman times competition of capitulated so you need a solid base for the field while of the flair of Demaria plan as giving having them tidiness on the ball with a been overly ambitious but has given year defensive cover and its second bows which tonight then you can try and balance out the three and from and that's where you might be a good problem to have five but you can't leave de Marito unformed late so that means to the other one's going to have to be left a difficult to balance those guys we lose big eagles so when they are talk talk of drove a the other game finishing a stalemate goldens between Club Brugge tank galatassary technology truth brought to you by GEICO truth. Teenagers can communicate entirely in emojis how why thump trump birthday party pizza slice kitten soccer ball pineapple truth. It's so easy to switch and save on car insurance at GEIKO DOT com. What are you talking about. paperclips shoulder shrug high five wizard hat what Goco fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percents or more her gave him a traitor finish up. Let's see to your vented. You've were tuna locked goals for the host soul and take a point and they they deserved that job. They said the win yeah. They were the better team and the goal project for the one. St Halftime from condruct was against the flow all of the game really particularly foster the dominated that lacey and just couldn't couldn't get goal. They were looked better structure. was strong. Were passionate around. You really didn't get any. They might say well. We're just sitting in an ABSO- frustrating for five minutes and then from nowhere got themselves a couple goals and Okra TV doesn't can the equality on another night. SHONEY's men three points. How would you assess this from the point of view good point against the difficult opposition or concerns. How dominated you were? I think you'd have to be concealed. You know you'd have to be concerned. Concern onto things won the fight he did get dominated so badly but the concern would be how you get pasta and get yourself two goals ahead and then lose the lead is very uneven to slake and of course. We've been waxing lyrical. How good electives being this so far. He hasn't hasn't really produced. He's been involved in some some bad goals. They've lost and some important goals. It was always going to be interesting to see how this transition from Athleti would develop that refund watch at the moment they are but I don't know if he's sitting on the sidelines. Oh I want to be fun to watch. What do we do now because because naturally for him. He just doesn't feel like that's the way he wants to play and yet. You have a guy like Josh. Felix goes on a long run. You say couldn't it. There's something there and there's Thailand Alan here and there and they can create chances total comes off the bench and the raiders coming off the bench and it's a different personality to the team and a team then now can come back from two goals down not let the team from the past with yellow simone they would have been capable of that at the very least well what he would argue that what we wouldn't give give up two goals and but this is the need now as for Juventus. It's now becoming more symptomatic of their issues because they did give up three goals against Napoli. They did give up then and they lied today and so is this is an initial going for it feels like it because once you see it on back-to-back locations. You're like wait a minute. This is just one night off. Defensively we have problems. You've not the only team that agency to go lead slip Spurs as well during two two do away against Olympia in the earlier game today by Munich taught that group in Group B Olympiakos be disappointed. They didn't get us uh-huh all right. He'll see this way in Greece three points by great because we played well that was the same twenty minutes of domination the nation from Olympiakos then hurricane trip for a penalty kick then Ben Davis back and a gray area slept it to Lucas Moore who asked the question why it doesn't play more often because he always looks scores a great goal great but then they come back and we saw the flaws. You know that really challenge orange again. I didn't have to make choices and for panel CAC and then the ends possible hanging on it wasn't a good performance from them but to challenge league finalist from last year hovering off great start but as far as the way from home. It's not a bad point but it wasn't a great performance from a spurs perspective. How do you review this so you happy to Ah Point lead disappointed. You dominated inferior oppositions unless you know it was going to be disappointed having been two goals but if you want to look at it performance you happy you go something something. I thought the where the dominant Crystal Palace I thought the old supposedly was back at last they blamed the transfer window and Ericsson and all they blame different Arain apart from the fact that they will rotten on the field. I I don't remember the last time I've looked at Tottenham. Saving thought these really don't don't quite know what they don't look as though they actually know how they're going to go chinks dilutes Hannibal defensively which which is something I felt the team would votes on the Oscars playing in the music silence. They announced a city with a three no way way against the shot and saw comfortable. Stop Radio aside extra time available on our youtube. Channel is always say later on your tweets Bichon.

You're on holiday and say hey I. I think he'd love it. He would get the sarcasm and everything rather be here than how how much would rig is on the field. Meanwhile a couple of tweets similar. The subject is gay. One of the best defended defensive midfielders in the world is the underrated how dependent she gave only twenty million. He was excellent excellent night. Wasn't he. Franken both or yeah. That's a big surprise. I mean they could have got him in January but the way they were waiting for thing ever to put the price up is a fantastic player. I mean the guy you need like in Gulu County uh-huh fantastic player. I mean only twenty eight million. It's a gift calcium. You look ready to move on. You got lots gotcha questions. Go a few more. GonNa is the Dan finally being exposed as having built a career in the Champions League by riding on the back of Renaldo of you. Don't win three of them. Just because you're right in the back overnight low there are other things that have to go your way and there are other things that you have to do as a manager and their changes that you have to make and adjustments and so on and so forth so I'll dismiss that question dismiss it it was exposed of always said with a grip replace he hot the Big Question of has management on coaching would come with some playoffs and got at the moment meanwhile. I'm seeing any quotes. I'm not sure if he said anything but imagine me might soon camerino turn the tide drains look. I'll tell you what you do start losing so many goals but then would that affect them going forward with the players they have on the initial intolerant today as well so it can only united now with a squad that been decimated meeting rebuilt uncritically from wrong book Kinda. That's where Real Madrid are so. Let's go. It'd be really domestically. I feel quite good about themselves definitely. Did everyone overreact to US losing one game Manchester City Fan Frank anything off that defeat against Norwich poor performance. I want to say well done to Mendy. I made mistakes in my career but it's it's that was quite appalling now which play well so we're going to them but I think men CD the player they came on the field thinking that you will be an easy win and you know in the Premier Li you can lose was against everybody so you have to fight hard and if CD wants to win something knowing that the chimpanzees always difficult to in the to you stopped working very because we're pussies to be on the way to to win the premier league since a longtime frankly wanted.

You know I'd Premier League winning side against you know a soft soft London side and we have all sorts of goodness for this episode and again just want to apologize. I'm busy Z.. Right now I've actually started to new podcast not related to soccer. What about video games ones about personal journals that people in their twenty s probably be talking about that way more once they use things are getting underway underway? And schedule's been crazy and Martin and I are just trying to you know we're just trying to do our best out here man because we love you guys in labs labs never going to die. We were going to be here until the fucking at a time when time ends then now. We're not going to be there anymore. But Hey Martin I have the first topic topic of the day and before any premier league goodness we're GonNa talk about. MLS and get it all the way. Are you ready. Yeah that's an affirmative. Okay congrats to the Seattle sounders on winning. I think it's their second in four years molest. I don't have. They were playing Komo Oscar shoot. They beat Toronto again in the final they they play all the time loved Michael Bradley. Okay okay so now onto the real. MLS News Slot Ibrahimovic has announced his leaving the galaxy. Martin and I would like to read this. This is a open word. You know Mike Right now of ends departure this is this is his poetry left with us. Ready hit me breath. I came I saw. I conquered. Thank you Ellie Galaxy for making me feel alive again to the galaxy fans you wanted. I gave us Latin. You are welcome. The story continues now. Go back to watch baseball. Well Marin go back doc in watch baseball you fucks. I went to censor slot in the tree in a post. Hit the nail on the head. I I love this man I love Zlatan Ibrahimovic so fucking much and was literally the only reason I would tune in for molest and I know all the MLS lovers of our show you know. We do our best. I tried to become an emmy last guy into a bunch of games. It's tough for me. Support your local team. Support your local club always but as per premier league guys and pseudo molest guys. WHO's the big name Marin who's going to pull us to watch MLS Games? No one. No one like I mean even even if you brought over a you know a really good player. WHO's at the end of his prime like even if it's Fernando Torres or someone along that of that ilk I still want to watch it? I mean Damn I probably have launched three M. O.'s games In the past three years but his lawn actually made me pay attention a lot and made paying me type in. Mos News here and there's lot may me actually enjoy talking some shit about the Moana just ignoring it like it didn't happen you you try and think of another iconic player who can bring such interest in such energy to the major league soccer organization in an you know my main my mind is blank. Room dog is gone. or I P often Darby to be player manager Clare Manager a panegyric if you will as salons gone and in all honesty if anybody thinks Carlos Vela's a big name I got another thing for you. There's no one who can replace him. Yeah Yeah I mean. It's probably less isn't going to get buzz till Rinaldo and messy come over and we'll run out is getting subbed out by sorry. That's other big news. That Renaldo is not really a starter order. Saris pretty much forcing him to go out there now. I mean the guys. What like thirty five? Now what does he thirty thirty thirty four. Yeah he's going to be thirty five in January. I think think so for a guy who just you know. He's just been God. You know I mean you could not imagine him not being good. It's like weird seeing him being subbed off so much but yeah Martin I think until a messy Rinaldo who else you know like goes over there. Because we he had Cacao Cacao. Didn't even work that much buzz here. which was weird? So then again he played for and Shitty Orlando Florida. So sorry Florida I don't know I really don't know where to go next to the MLS but hey go go Philadelphia Union. Go Jimmy Curtin in the boys I for sure watched your exit exit in the second round. So you guys are awesome Martin I have a couple more things before we get into the match is another thing that made my heart very full was was Arshavin. Son Are not going to spoil it. Arshavin son is named after arsene Wenger in it is arseny Arshavin now. That's the cutest fucking thing. Ever Ray. I mean what I can't get something cuter I mean I just I love that communicative Russian. I mean for goodness Sakes Sakes. Whenever he played for Arsenal I was always just like all? Look at him so now. There's a mini mini Arshavin. And he's named after arsene Wenger. The Guy who gave gave Arsov in his big break fucking on love football. You can't just make that up. That's just amazing. Yeah and shutouts arsene Wenger. That's a good segue segue. He got put in a position. I'm trying to look it up right now. I think its head of the element or something. If FIFA let me look that up real quick but yeah arsene wenger working for Viva when he was supposed to get the buyer Munich job. So shout outs Arza winger moving up in the world baby seventy and strong. There's also a picture of him with APPS. CBS The other day at the beach and I was like fuck me. ARSENE WENGER HAS ABS at like seventy fuck howdy is and what am I doing again again. Martin what am I doing i. I don't know I don't know he's seventy and he's the global football developmental mental role and you know twenty six and we've got a podcast shit or since beating as yet again arsene Wenger. He's done it again. And the last thing I want to talk about Martin which will probably talk closer to the end of the year but someone tweeted out some of the most memorable moments of the twenty tens ends which included Messy Rinaldo rivalry stevie JEEZ ICONIC SLIP aguero Lester winning the Premier League Chelsea's twenty twelve Chelsea Jamie's Gwynne Massey's ninety-one goals the twenty ten world cup and asked what are your most iconic moments in for me. It was Germany Brazil. Seven one. But I'm trying to think that's like the game. I'm going to remember from decade but is there anything else you can think of the top of your head with. I mean we had in a mazing unbelievable decade of football so this is their thing. This is like the go of the goat of decades seconds of the two decades that I've watched in soccer history in my life history. The two thousand ten have been dope the two thousands are full of nostalgia. uh-huh twenty tons of just fucking fantastic in the most memorable for me it it's one of One of two. It's either are the opening game in the twenty four. I think it was twenty fourteen World Cup. I might have been twenty ten. It was twenty ten world cup. Maybe I don't China can't do that The opening game of one of those two World Cups Win Netherlands just shocked Spain. Just beat their ass up and down the street. RVP opening up the header or opening up the goal with just a phenomenal classic RVP header over Casillas. And that was just you know it was the turning point of Iker Casillas career was the champions of the world in twenty ten being just absolutely demolished in the game of two thousand fourteen. Now it was just a crazy game for me. Oh yes because because you had been winning it all again and out in the first round I remember that. Yeah I was Gonna I was going to culminate with that. I I did one of those little bracket things the things that everybody does when World Cup. Our march madness rolls around and I had money on Spain going all the way. It's pretty frigging confident in myself. And you know all hope was nominated so like all my soccer experiences. And the other one Kev of in you and I agree on this. Just because once in a lifetime once in a generational event Leicester City winning the League A million earth thousand one odds just just phenomenal phenomenal. I can't easier again to explain. Just elation the surprise just the shock that the soccer community felt worldwide world wide when Leicester literally went from bottom of bottom of the table at Christmas the previous season two champions of the English premier league the next season in and just I mean Vardi Kante my boy mall res- who it was just such a stunning squad and it was just such a stunning story. So that that definitely merits honorable mention for me. Yeah we're actually standing right next to each other in barracks when we were at the Virginia Military Institute holding each other When I believe even has are scored against Tottenham insecure the win for Leicester City and then there was all the cuts back to Vardis party at his house and them losing their minds? Like I just have such vivid images of it in just gave me chills like the greatest Cinderella story like it was a movie like that for me. Martin will be my miracle on ice for soccer. Yeah that that'll be Leicester City defeating the Russians. which are the top six? So Oh dude. The people wanted the storylines a and just help us. Team has put together a real deal. Prem team in the years post their championship run. And you know if anybody asks you their new disorder and they're looking for a team support. I honestly think best. Justin is to support less than like obviously cavs Fan United Fan. But if you just want fun team team who who is just goes balls to the wall every single game who I have great players both on the pitch off the pitch choose lesser any new soccer soccer fan fan anymore absolutely an honestly if I had a team besides arsenal. If I didn't go and study abroad in Swansea and go to at the university I would probably pick lester as my second favorite team. Well I guess I could pick lesser since Wansy isn't in the premier league anymore but you know whatever it's fine I'm I'm going to transition Martin and we're gonNA talk about it. The match of the weekend the now rivals the forced rivalry rivalry between the money rivalry Liverpool versus Man City final score. Three one Liverpool winning at Anfield fueled shocker opening goals by for Mito Salah and then like early quick goals. I was trying to say the Saudi Amani Making a three nil and Bernardo Silva late in the match. Making it three one. But everyone's GonNa talk about Var and the handballs and the penalties that should have been given in Martin. I tweeted the south. I've talked to a lot of city fans trying to figure out are you. Are you more upset at the call's those being wrong or are you more upset that a Guero in your front attack missing chances regime sterling again In in a lot of the city fans were like well Liverpool plates of the whistle. They took advantage of our and all Liverpool does win man. They are a gritty nasty team. That no matter what the haters going to hate on them but hey there chilling at the top of the table with a nice gap now. It's still very early in the season. City fan seemed the still think they're fine but Martin. What did you make match also for being US rip delicious? Yeah I mean I thought that that you know if if I did not know the goals I didn't know what shots win and just saw it on you know just a completely neutral Sida. Ah was quite obviously the two best teams in the world playing their balls out. And so I think from the first whistle to the final whistle minus the fifteen seconds that city city players took yelling at the referee. It was just full out. Try try try to win So Oh I do think that Liverpool you know kind of kind of A. It's kind of a double edged sword. I thought they deserve that w but I also thought they got very lucky to get that W. so it's you know. I think that overall they were the better team on the day. Ah they were unbelievably clinical with their finishes I they did not have nearly the amount of shots or the time in the opposition's you know in their area as Manchester City did to them but when they were there they made their shit count and I will say if Edison is playing. This might be a different game Because Claudio Bravo lead in a couple of shots were could have been saved by a world-class keeper. Edison Bravo's stinks. What shocking shockingly pep header reason to bench bravo in for Hissy fit and get Edison smart man? Dan But with that being said I just think that you know you get live report chance. And they're gonNA take it. It's like that book we used to read differ bear cokie Anneli Alley once a glass of milk give Liverpool goal and now they want another goal and it just proves from being with that opening rip which I thought was safe -able adventuresome awesome was in it and then Mohamed Salah with just a gorgeous header after a phenomenal cross by rob and Bing Bang the Games James overrate. They're two zero up in the first thirteen minutes and city missing chances after chances razz looking like old razz guerra. Luck doc in Dan Roth and the only real bright spot in that attack from Manchester City was Katy B Bernardo they they were just controlling the ball controlling that Liverpool defense and So I think this is the third game in a row for Razz. Where he's just been and up to his old tricks missing a lot and had a couple off game so there might be some cause for worry in the city ranks rank spot? I mean Shit like you said it's early days yet. We're in the Tenth Week of the Prim so we are not attend and probably the Fourteenth Fifteenth The ME I o check I will check Google as quick as I can and it just ain't happening it just ain't happening. I'll just go to the table and then there were. I like the Games is played. That's what I was GONNA do. That's what fucking Heo but yeah this this was a crazy. Talk to game name and I I do think Liverpool deserve that. W even if they were very fortunate with Vr and I mean you gotTa admit if Vr they are called if that hamble is correctly cold on. It's an entirely different game and soccer game about momentum's City goes one zero up in the first six minutes Different Game. I'm for the rest of the ninety. Oh reported out the call and took complete advantage of it but Kev if any other Liverpool fan or stand as the cool kids call them says Trent Alexander Arnold is the best right back in the league. I might just have an aneurysm holy crap. Well he's pretty good you know. He's a he's nasty dude he's mazing yet. Yeah exactly Rightly his crosses are absolutely amazing. Him in Robbo I got but crosses aren't a defenders priority. That boy gets beat all the time. Three handballs one game and he can cross. That's for sure but he is a Scheidt defender. This is the new you. NBA Martin I mean MLB. I'm you wrote though you wrote. This is the new offensive minded shoot. Three pointers crosses into the box. And I'm just saying like look look at What's it called Kanteh's? I'm throwing it back to Chelsea win the league three years ago of Kante Left and right wing back. You had Victor Moses. Who Wears he now? Victor Moses was this I mean he's also always been shit the remember him. Yup Look great for Antonio Dante. Didn't he yeah not really I. I think that Victor Moses has been one of Chelsea's worst offenders in the past decade. I think really good one season though and I'll just hold onto that for S.. In my life I always remember people at their best. Martin always got you. You do. Let the cream rises to the top and judge them on that. So that's you know that's that's it's just a beautiful sentiment you just God's not now not now okay not never all over myself because you made me drinking rigging tonight. I didn't ask Bush Bush. I'm drinking Bu- almost got bud. But Bush is doing a weird hunters orange can for a special reason I dunno brother Day Hale Yeah and you we have. Also Dad's shot a deer literally forty five minutes before I left work and dragged it up so it was like this is for you L. Hunters Orange for you. Yeah Well Fuck Ya al but Martin now all the man said he conspiracy theories are out there now saying oh the premier league he just wants Liverpool to win so another team can win so it makes it look like a competitive league and now Liverpool conspiracy theorists around now because now Bernardo Silva has got a one match ban after deliver pool city match saying. Oh it's awfully convenient. He gets the match ban after the big match which now Bernardo civil because of his racist tweet with Mendy has the I think he got fifty thousand dollar fine AH BS I go to like racial treatment or something like don't be a racist Rehab and he also will miss the big match against Chelsea so all sorts of things going on for that little Portuguese man. He would just killed it today with Rinaldo anyway. Martin do you believe any of this conspiracy south also again as someone who is always rooting for VR. Another weekend where it just completely lost the plot. It was horrible so we can. We agree after twelve weeks in. Can you come to the dark side and hate vr with me and agree. It's ruined football. It's ruined me man. Dan Yeah it just. It's like. I thought Arsenal depress me Var depresses me. Even more sometimes and that's saying a lot like I've I been your number one fan. I believe in you I trusted you. Martin in Vr has done nothing. But just let me down like like I was just on a quick plug who kicked the corner. Flag awesome soccer. podcast just had me on his a guest. I said they're like the alcoholic stepfather. You keep you keep just rooting for and he just keeps speaking with my stepfather fucking greatest human being ever this all you other people have shitty Stepfather's anyway what I'm trying to say is he's just a bad father figure gives letting me down. Yeah Man I I'll true sorry about your dad Second Var big-time bad. I just WanNa say little pat myself on the back right here right now you got to take for you to take I whatever skip bayless kef how much shit did did you give me for literally just despising VR. Before I even came. I knew I knew this I knew. Va Arwa coming. I knew the World Cup the use it well the world. That's the funniest part you hate. You hate when you're right. I hate when you're right. It's once in a blue moon so you don't have to hate All that often but back to this whole conspiracy theory because because if there is something I love more in this world than beer. It is some weird soccer conspiracy theories so obviously cities obsession with VR helping Liverpool in Liverpool's obsession with the rule book and the guidelines in the and upper level management of the GPO. Helping city is fucking hysterical. I love it I love it but I I do think that it it stems down to Vr. We would not be having all these conspiracy theories crop up if VR wasn't involved if we didn't have the talking point Old VR gave them this win Var gave him this draw VR. took away. This W so Take away some. Va or take away all these instant instant Chill out a little bit and see if there really is a conspiracy theory because right now I think this is the best you know Season in the past three years. I'd I'd go head inside. This has been a funniest shit season so far if you ignored liver poet at talk. The racist wide open from second to attend separated by eleven points Manchester United it is back in seven Chelsea's third Leicester's and second Cities now in Fourth Sheffield United. Let's get Wednesday but the the fuck that's another Sheffield Sheffield United v It's it's just bad as bad as fun stories all round so best the world for sure. Did anybody any other league suck a Dick because the out of my face Also so one more thing about this game before we move onto arsenal unfortunately Did you hear about the whole scuff up between Gomez razz between go misery sterling. Yeah Yeah fucking sue. Petty English Bullshit. Broking Joe Gomez Might only thing is Joe Gomez doesn't and even start nor played for Liverpool. So why we doesn't play for what he does play for Liverpool but like I guess he plays like three minutes every game or so. Maybe when you have newly when you lose your starting about the Lavin not great great Anyway I'm I'm also with all the England like Gareth Southgate Bullshit. Not Starting James Madison speaking of James Madison. Great Transition. Let's go to Leicester Verses Arsenal Martin all you say is what did I expect in this game I I well. It's November if no one knows arsenal it's not exactly great when with November rain. was I expecting a high flying Lester side who've been nothing but dominant and bad ass this whole season with incredible side which might be better than the side that won the Premier League which we were talking about earlier. What did I think? Think as an arsenal fan thinking that we're going to go in and win this at Leicester at Leicester I'm like. What is this hope? That still is inside me. I've I don't know I could. Inspire hope for generations of people with how much arsenal is. Give me to think. I I just feel so dumb. We got absolutely dominated by this squad. Who are just frigging tank right now? And what am I supposed to to do this. Midfield which way better than ours tons of these lesser players besides maybe are like lock. Is that bomb Yang who I could just replace my whole squad. With these guys is indeed is amazing Peres of Jamie vortices getting nods. He might win the Golden Boot. I mean what was I did. The James Madison is definitely going to Manchester United next year. Like Martin what am I doing. What am I doing wrong to think? That arsenal could've won this match when I have this soft embry man as my coach did I love to hear that. Hey I think there is a couple couple. We'll bid points that we've learned from this game Number one being is less than some special like you said. I think this team is better than their championship Winning team so this is this is a bad esther to fund. mustards dangerous. Lester who is solid at the front as they've been and and even more solid at the back with the introduction of Seon Cohen and Johnny Evans. What the Hell So Lesser Real. frigging good Kevin. I do not. I don't know why you thought. Arsenal could beat him. Always bet on Lester against arsenal. That's that's just my gut feeling and second big point emory's done You remember loans and about ease not good manager to get sacked it's gotta be unite emory. Look he's playing. He's playing rob holding DABID. Louise Callum changes chambers. He's putting pepper on. The bench was literally done nothing all year. Lock is that is hit. Hit or miss just came back from the injury and still can't score a Bamian can't score all these goals by himself. Gwen doozy was pretty dog. Shipping entire game DABID. Louise is looking like a traitor everyday for Arsenal. He sucks he sucks. It's horrible and Kev. We've said this shit for the past three four however you and I have been friends so sevenish years on on Your defense is still shit. You guys have had a a new manager. You guys have had opportunities to improve that. Defense and yet tactically unify emory has no idea what the fuck do And once again Ed this looks like Arsenal November with just no direction and it sucks to say this but this is not a better arsenal than it was was under arsene Wenger bring me winger. Winger in March is that we winger Kevin in. I posted the picture of me with my arsenal. Jackie that big the Big Puma one I have and I said I had a big campaign for Kevin in so I think we start that. Put me in the manager. You'll see decide is just. The side is not good not good. It's just been the typical arsenal. There's no balls to this team not at all. What was the name of the guy? I think his name right now. So we have. No Kahane's Goddamn Dini haunts my nightmares nightmares. By the way that time that whole time Martin was going on his arsenal ran downstairs. Grab my charger. I'm glad that was tomorrow on. Good job thanks holding down the fort. I didn't even tell you that's why I'm so just wanted to bitch about it wasn't even that arsenal was so bad. It's also that Lester is so good I mean Martin like you said they are currently second in the table they are or ahead of the former champions. I am so how to shape holy fuck and like I quit smoking a while ago. This sucks And sitting only my phone so cracks that can even see thirty. Four to twenty six What's the math there? Points Line not bad and on goal differential of plus twenty one goal differential. That's ridiculous so yeah. What are your expectations for this lesser side? Do you see them finishing top four now. I I think that's a really fucking really weird chance at this point ain't like in the beginning of the season. Obviously I dismissed any thought that'd team outside of the top six could finish in the top four another loan the top six and to be perfectly honest after watching arsenal and Manchester United's in Tom's Start to the season You could convince me that literally any team can jump into the top six spots I think Leicester City I will certainly at the end of the year Be in the top. I five Whether arsenal or Manchester United gets their shit together catches them. I don't know by going to give it a one hundred percent chance of them getting into the top five not say a eighty five eighty percent chance of getting in the top four because we saw it in their championship Ron We Sought last year. We saw the year previous. This team is consistent if nothing else they don't jump from the top of the table to the bottom of the table they don't go through for swings of greatness and swings shitting they're consistently good or great and right now they're consistently great You mentioned a couple of players who we have just been playing out of their gourds and they've been doing that since the beginning of the season. I don't think there's any reason to doubt that they can continue doing this. It's one more thing and this pains me to admit but I actually sat allowed for the university here the other day Brennan Rogers is good. Coach bullshit are you going to finally say it. Yeah I said I said I meant I'm here. It's very big a you shit. Yeah Nadda. He should have won the premier league if it wasn't for somebody I don't think so. He did not deserve to win the Premier League. He deserves to win the Scottish. He might I do. How funny would it be if you want it with lesser this year? We've ever pulled to second the seeds in the fucking scenes. Could you imagine limo coming in second behind Lester and Brendan Rodgers lifting that Premier League trophy. I want this vivid image in your head Jamie on Jay Jamie Vardi shocking Red Bulls just I I don't know what I would do man. I think the universe would explode. I think it will be the day before they were going to win the league and they have to play Liverpool and then the world explodes. I think Liverpool should just disintegrate as a team. If Brennan Brendan Rodgers gets a Tato before them with an a point lead right now in November if do if Leicester City Beats Liverpool to the tidal title. This year. Me You I guess whoever else you want fucking we're going to lester and we're going to go meet Jamie Vardi. We're going to go during which we're going to the prayed start to go go fund me right now if Lester win the league this year. We're going we're getting Fox's tattoos and we're we're we're GONNA Do cocaine because it's legal in England with Jimmy. No but if you're with Jimmy Vardi. On the day of the parade I think everything legal in Leicester. Do you just gave me a almost enlightening moment. When you said cocaine is gone England? I was just like what it to Brexit's wild brexit's anything goes Boris. Johnson is the Prime Minister for now now anyway moving on to London. Speaking of which Chelsea are Christian Pulisic leading the squad God to Nil Against Crystal Palace. I think he currently has five goals three assists which Martin I said before the beginning of the season I had a lot of doubters say a I thought he was going to have double double digit goals and assist. What's up haters Christian is proving you wrong right now and I'm proving you wrong? Because he is on track to get double goals and assists this year. As I said he was going to ten goals ten assists already pretty much. They're still gonna you still going to be the end game for Christian. I'll tell you what he's he's surprises. Shit on me I you were able doubter. You were one of those haters. Take all admit that now. Sky Walking on these haters. These has four games. He's been on Google and it'd be bad ass if he continues and so I'm Gonna I'M GONNA adjust my Earlier season ideas and say yeah he just might finish with one double one single. That's my new fucking perdition. One number one single in goals in this is I'm not gonNa tell you which one fuck you they got Marin a Boehner I will I'm on. ESPN right now. And the most recent video for Chelsea is our Christian Russian pulls it Chelsea now title contenders. Did I just read it first. ESPN DID I. Just I just I just read that out loud. I'm I'm I'm hot. I'm steamy. Are you kidding me right now. This and also like this. I hate that we said this many times on the show I hate that now. Chelsea Z are now the underdog team and that we have to root for them in frank is just doing a phenomenal job with the squad. Had them in second place so you know Leicester Win against someone. But I gotta say we're all doubting Franken. The beginning of the season after a couple of poor results is really shape as young gun Mason Mount Tammy Abraham everyone on the squad. It's just playing phenomenally. I I just can't get enough at Kovic. Everyone Martin What are the expectations for Chelsea? Now I think it's easily a top four spot right. Yeah Yeah for sure. Sure I mean beginning of the year. First of the year when they got Four zero by united. I think I've said it before on this podcast that that lit a fire in there as they haven't turned around since they've been. Joseph churning out these results in style since then and I think there are so many great players players on this Joseph Squad. I mean you start with the back Let's not mention cap because he's actually pretty sight but says Ask way too. I think he's been one of the most underrated defenders and for quite some time. Now he's consistently been one of my top five defenders in the program To Maury bad ass Shit Kurt Zuma when he's not fouling. People look in half decent. I I just love the way Kovic plays on love the way fucking Tammy Abraham plays Mason Mount plays. This team is fun and and really really performing coming under under Frank Lampard's through lewd so against my better judgement and against What I really WANNA do? I'm rooting for this team. This is a bad ask team and crippling you know winning over the hearts and minds of English players and English fans so Clint Dempsey move on over. There's a new sheriff in town and his name is Christian Christian Chris Christian Yeah I'm just this swooning so hard for this Hershey Pennsylvania man I honestly just. I don't know there's just so fun to watch every time I know I just know with this Chelsea squad. No matter who they're going up against they're gonNA show up. It's not like arsenal is not like Tottenham. It's not like even Manchester United. Who will get to? We're going to touch upon them a little before we close out this show. I just know this Chelsea squad has a fire under him. Like you say Martin and they're GONNA show up. The play is going to be a lot of fun. And tammy Abraham phenomenal title. He has been the you know Stryker. They've been needing since Diego. Costa has left Murata he in Morocco and he did not do the job and I don't know. And plus Abraham came from Swansea so shut out to those swans Martin. Yeah he was loaned off there. He was not last year was he. I think it was two years two years ago villa last year. I know that yeah. I think he's villa in Swazi fucking tam-tam Tammy also has five names that are inaudible Try and pronounce. But I found that out tonight. So that's pretty cool but I gotta say the clear that Tim Abraham reminds me most of his hurricane Just the way he's go-getter he's a goal scorer He's a header the ball. He's a shooter of the ball. He volley ball he POGES goals and You know the sky's the limit for this kid. He's looking bad s him. Mace amount Christian Pulisic had formed a really phenomenal attacking partnership. So fucking hate to do it. But gotta root for the underdog team we for underdogs here on leads. Fuck I mean underdogs I mean I love them. Underdogs Martin. Speaking of Harry. Kane I'm sick of watching Tottenham Tottenham I'm tired of Shot at the Sheffield United. Who just show up also kind of like Chelsea though play the same fun attacking pass forward football against everyone so I love them? The games I have watched them but Tottenham the locker rooms done podge and that means I'm done with this squad. They don't care anymore. The experiment is over. Let's just wrap this up. And just just re this big reboot. Yeah you didn't win anything to rebooted all yet again and I think you hit the nail on the head there. The Locker Room has obviously just given up on Direction of this club and you can see it in performances of the players as well as the tactical substitution in starting lineups. That podge puts it's out is very rarely putting out his best starting eleven and that has to go down to locker room issues when the lights of deadly alley haven't been getting regular playing time Christian Erickson haven't been getting regular plain dumb. Lucas Moore has not And you have people like Soco go Really getting a lot of playing time. You've got Harry. Waves making a resurgence. You have fucking who's their shit defender He's he's Netherlands or some shit Big giant Davidson Sanchez You have him getting starting time over toby auto water water water water water water wall-to-wall and yawn veteran. So it's it's really kinda pathetic. How far they have dipped in these past two three months? The I guess four or five months since the Champions League final and blow it up begin a new pages in your guy guess. He lost all the windsor out of their sails. And it does not like they have any type of forward momentum and that I think is the huge difference between the teams of Arsenal Manchester. United Chelsea and Tottenham. Yeah there's some Ford momentum at United Yeah there's some forward momentum at I know yeah there are some Ford moment is they're trying to give you a compliment. There's some there's there's little peaks of at least you guys are going in four or direction with the lights of Gwen doozy in Ogden. And the starting of guys are putting out. But there ain't that Tottenham has peaked peaked. They peaked in June of this year. And it's been downhill. Climb since yeah and it's just boring to watch. I just want all these really awesome players just to go to other places and be awesome and then I can refer them so that sounds Kinda cool. Doesn't it Martin. Let's end this up. Let's and this show with your Manchester United or you feel good after the three one victory. No all right. So what did you make of the game. I mean we got some own goals and some penalties as what we do best I think the best thing about Manchester United in these past two games three games Has Been The returned. Love Anthony Marshy Allen. The obvious effect. He has on this team. I think that Anthony Marshy Al is pretty pretty pretty darn crucial to this team. At least he takes Defenders away from Marcus registered. So that's the reason Manchester United's been getting more opportunities. been shooting more. It's because they have to lethal threats going forward between Marcus Radford and Anthony more shell and you know in the Games previous obvious with Marciano out for a month and a half defenders just had to focus on Marcus Radford because nobody else on that fucking team can score goal cool so it it finally release some stress on Radford and it paid off he got a goal marcial. Got A goal and I Guess Harry Maguire go to going those the known goal So you know good W. Good three points. I'll take it. I'm always nervous about playing those gay Segel's they usually beat us so this was a decent game for Manchester United fans in. Maybe we've turned a corner. Who knows? I have nothing really say about this game. Besides Nice won you won and you know brought to you by biggest compliment. Their biggest thing I wanted to take aways. I started talking to this girl who is Mom's English and her dad's Italian and her mom's from Brian. Choose to live and Brian and we were texting about the game the whole time and she's a total babe and I'm like wow I found the love of my life and she said fuck the thanks. So that's where you Martin that's for you and Siegel's will be relegated this year next year. So it's coming no joy. The short lived time there girl girl well as long as swansea comes back up. Then I'm fine. Will it happened. Hold on I'm going to fucking live. Do a live check as to the plight of the swans real quick. Please God do you know because I do not I get the update eight of them winning and losing and that's and I barely like pay attention to it. I go nice and then I go off with the rest of my day. So Please God Swansea Swazi Swansea University. Please are he's whatever in. What is your MPN ship? They are in fourth place. Oh Blitz fucking Oh Martin Swans are coming up swans are coming up. Swans are coming up. Yeah so put that in the calendar for the end of the year Swazi is ed him. Back to the prime baby and I'm pretty jazzed about it. You know as a longtime Swazi Fan van it's been do you know Gary Monk Days the Wolford Bony of the Gomez doing the weird lion. Cheer Guilty Gerson. You know if you're just joining us now watching soccer or some people forget guilty secret sin was on Swazi. Wow Martin made my night so thank you. You're you're welcome. Thanks guys.

LADS#159 - Liverpool are Champions of Europe

"Ooh. No, no. No, no thing. Cam Pettit and Martin Frazier. And we are loud Americans discussing soccer better known as lad. Today is June fifth twenty nineteen in Martin Liverpool are champions of Europe for the six time, are you. Okay. I'm all right. I'm you don't sound okay, dude? I'm okay I'm not I'm not devastated. I'm not too sad. But I'm not doing great. It's, it's huge. Congratulations to Liverpool fans worldwide. Just a crazy trophy to win and, and well deserved but to any Manchester United arsenal fan out there guys, we could have been that we used to be that. So that's, that's for a lot of my sadness is coming from Kev. How the heck you're you doing after, you know, Tottenham law? So that's all right. You report for Liverpool. It's, it's a no cave victory for you. Yeah. I you know, I just wish I could have been a Liverpool fan for a day to feel that type of joy, you know. As an arsenal fan. It's just kind of like does see other like I was like joyful for Liverpool fans obviously, but like I just like could have given anything to be a Liverpool fan on Saturday, it would have been so fucking sick because just to see how happy it is. And what a story man you're Klopp, coming in ending up in eighth place, going through so much shit losing semi final after semi final or final after final my apologies. Niro, peligro. I believe Lee Cup right? And then coming second place to oh oh, sorry championship the year before into bounce back. I mean, that is such an accomplished Martin to literally come back the following year. How hard it is to be at that level. And a lot of people saying like, oh, deliver pool missed their chance to win the Champions League when they lost the Real Madrid the year before to come all the way back and be even better. I mean that's incredible. And the shit that you're in Klopp, and all these lads at Liverpool and Liverpool fans in general who everyone was saying, oh, they're going to be so insufferable who I think they just had a band. Did you see their parade? You see pictures from that, dude, like, we went to the eagles parade. When Philadelphia one and it was like that was pretty wild because it's the first Super Bowl for the eagles. It wasn't. It was one one hundred of how while Liverpool was. Yeah. I mean, the, the pictures from the prayed were just amazing. I that, that relations you just the wildness in the craziness of, of the fans, they are in worldwide and how much that trophy men to them. So I love him pictures like that. Looking at the pictures in the past of, when Ramadorai won the trophies it was packed streets. It was it was fireworks. This is no different. But there was like a different feeling that EROs it was, you know, like pure jubilation as well as be being complete tools. I I'm not gonna let you off that easy Liverpool fans. I'm gonna sneak some insults in here. Oh my God. Let 'em have a come on. I am. I'm congratulating them, but I'm gonna appear some with a couple in insults. Along the way just to keep it real fucking like you said, you're in clock. That's crazy. Obviously, I root against that man with every fiber my being, I just think he's a German over enthusiastic German at the end of the day, but to, to come I don't want to say the word to come back from all that adverse adversary because it's not coming back. It's, it's, you know, overcoming everything that was thrown his way in terms of losing as many finals as getting, you know, a pretty shitty. Liverpool team to begin with back in twenty thirteen in transforming them in to the group of killers. It's, it's phenomenal what he's done for this club. So take a bow son and shout out to getting absolutely pissed drunk and almost falling off the bus, you can do almost anything in the world, you're Klopp, and I will still hate you. But that made me like you just a little bit more, that was dote. That's Jack Wilshire shit singing, what do we think of Tottenham shit? And for that, just. Unreal scenes did unreal scenes immediately after the game the prayed during the game this Liverpool supporters. It's crazy man. Like you think of phantoms and, and the craziest phantoms who have have that most die hard crazy love for their team. And the first one that really pops into my mind are two teams the eagles in the Bruins just that weird. We're family connection with the club, and that's what I think of when I think of the Liverpool fan base for the most part, so I'm jelly dude. I'm peanut butter and jelly. And I wish it was my team being good. So just once again, Salah, Bobby bright tooth for me. No Monay Hendro fucking handle one Champions League guys, when he lifted trophy, it was surreal lake. It was it was weird. It didn't set in until that moment when he did. They did all. Like real life. This is fever. Fevers fevers messing with me. I just did fee for career mode, and Hendel got a a Champions League medal and trophy. But two of the best or two of my favorite players on Liverpool are Robbo and Trent Alexander Arnold. Those youngsters are some bad news bears. Some of the best fullbacks will not really fullbacks wing bags in the in the world right now granted they're only have one amazing season in them, so far. But, but the ceilings high the potentials high this season before the run to the championship last year was pretty phenomenal as well. I think they've definitely mean even for their age of proven that they are just nothing but quality and Martin. I was gonna say to your boy, you said, in the last pot someone from the discord channel pointed out that you were like, I'm going to be so fucking limited or Ige scores. And I knew it behold. Yeah. God, dammit. Kevin. I just need to stop speaking things into existence. Second. You started talking shit about Liverpool in and betting on, on Tottenham that lever pull was definitely gonna win it. And lo and behold, what did they do in, in literally, the first thirty five seconds go and get a penalty. This is my fault Tottenham. I'll take the blame here. Yes. You wanna just talk about the game for a second going into the game seeing Harry Kane in the starting lineup. That was the big questionable move by Paci. No. And turned out to be the wrong move. Martin. It was pretty. It was pretty obvious. Harry Caine was not fit to play. And he just just just didn't do anything. He didn't like there wasn't any movement. No runs in the back, you know in between the lines. He just us kind of, like, you know, several people have said this, but it was like Tottenham were playing with ten men. He just didn't do anything to help this Tottenham squad in the final third, which is kind of like potch as philosophy that if there's a fit, if Harry Kane is fit it all play them. No matter what even though Lukas Mora is your hat trick hero. You know what I mean? You know, and you could tell more I don't know if he was pissed but I definitely definitely was not. I think he wasn't happy with starting on the bench. You know, he's been you know, the, you know, the, the starting man, the man who's been leading Tottenham for part of it to this to get to this final. So Harry Kate, I don't know. Like, do you think it was Harry k not being fit, or you just didn't perform? Well, what do you think what, what was going on with Harry Kane in this match? I absolutely think that he was rushed back way too soon. And I thought it was a real poor tactical decision from positive. No. I was talking to my brothers before the match. And we were getting drunk, so we were yelling at each other as one is a Liverpool fan. And he's obviously wrong, and we were talking about the possibility of hurricane even playing. And so it was super weird to see him starting over Lucas Moore. Who like you said, just when a terror against I ax and has been critical to their success. When the moment counts the most in, in the Champions League this entire campaign. So I thought it was a real bad call, and I thought patina was gonna do the exact opposite. I thought he was going to give Lucas more. The start let him play those seventy minutes. Try and hold Liverpool to a zero zero or a one zero difference. And then bring on Harry Kane in the seventieth minute, we talked about that tactic. That's what we thought like we were talking about if Harry Kane is not one hundred percent like do not play him. Do not go against your better judgment, just because it's almost like you're. Picking like fee for rankings over like actual playing. You know what I mean? Yeah. And I will say Lucas more after the match he, he was asked about the this, which Rooney, the the benched role that he played. And he was super. Respectfully said that he, he really wished he starts. He was obviously very sad. He did not start, but he respects his coach's decision, and that it's a tactical one. There was nothing that he could do and must respect it. So I was like, okay word. That's, that's a, that's a real cool mindset. Even even though I mean, I think he knew in a lot of fans think they know that he would have been much more dangerous than Harry came, because Harry Kane, did fuck all in the first half. I think I saw him touch the ball one or two times he got roughed up almost every single time he came close to the ball. And it it was like you said they. They were playing with ten men, there was no center of attack. There was no point of attack. And that's why Tottenham was able to hold all that possession around pools goal. But they could not find a way to Pierce that, that defense. They couldn't find a way to play the final ball or the second to last Bajo ball because there was no point man. They they had a week. Harry Kane, who was worse than sun in the centre forward position or more in the centre forward position. So I think while that might not have been the only factor that caused Tottenham to lose. But I think that was a huge factor in this game and Tottenham performance. Yeah, it was a very strange game because when that early goal came. So should we talk about that early goal as well? Hamble or no Hamble. I think it's I I've seen people debate me, a lot of my friends when I was watching down in CIO, New Jersey. Also just by the way, I a couple of people now. I had a neuro virus this weekend Martin, I don't think I've actually told you this. And I was having terrible shits. I was literally running to the bathroom every five. You knew those like butterflies in your butterflies in your stomach. I literally had them the entire it just hurt. Wasters dude, dude, I think it was like the Philly water. I drink some Philly tap water from the apartment. And just like just ruined me or something. I was I was like I had to be picked up Saturday night from my friend's house and like taking home and I was literally in a fool sweatshirt sweatpants, like, like just what's called cold sweats. Like holding myself, and I went to bed at eight thirty and woke up at nine thirty the next morning like I, I've never slept thirteen hours in my life. And it was I woke up like a brand new person I went for a hike the next day, but I will say the second half of the Liverpool Tottenham game, I was watching like five minutes running to the bathroom for five minutes in and out. But luckily, this turned out to be one of the I picked the right match to have the fucking shits because. It was one of the probably the worst Champions League final I've ever watched and that's nothing against these two teams. Just that's how it turned out like when Liverpool scored that early penalty, which let's get back to that. Do you think that was a penalty, the armpit the I think someone on our Facebook said the armpit of God, what did you, would you make of that? When I first saw it. I didn't think it was a penalty when I sought in, in the real time, and then when I saw the first replay, I didn't think it was a penalty, and then the more and more, I watched it, you know, like with every single replay, you notice more and more things than by the end of them showing it like six or seven times. I thought I saw roll down, like halfway down his triceps. So I thought it was a ham ball at the end. I thought it was a I thought it was purposeful by Mani actually if you want to jump into some conspiracy theories. Oh my gosh. Oh, no, no, no, no, no. The I thought it was brilliant by mono-, because the soco came directly to him when Monte got two edged the box and since Oko had his right hand up, pointing at Harry wings or cairn trippy, as dumb ass to go cover an overlapping run and the second, he held that hand up and was pointing at one of the defenders to cover another player. Monay scoop the ball in that general direction, obviously, it looked like it was a little scoop into the center of the box towards Bobby for me. No. But it looked like that was a perfectly time, scoop into center, massive soco, as if he was trying to get that handball. So if that's what he was trying to do that. Absolutely brilliant. Because the soco being the dumb ass that he is aren't there. What an idiot wouldn't wouldn't exactly fucking idiot. Why would you fly like flop your fling your arm up? Like that. That's just dumb. That's so an it's Sosa soco. I'm I'm not here as an arsenal fan, the show on Tottenham and soco. I think was announced as Tottenham player of the season, which is has had a much better season than most people thought. But God, what a dumb ass like you can debate if that was a Hamble or not. But you can't debate that was a bonehead move by so co like, there's no reason for his arm to be flying up like that when a ball is going to be flung in there for a cross. So that led to the penalty by Mohammed Salah redemption. After being hurt the year before by the number one super villain. Sergio Rama's and what a redemption story for him on goals leading goalscorer for Liverpool this year of twenty seven goals. Not a one season wonder as Martin has alleged. And. From that point on Liverpool was just like alright. Liverpool is nothing but all out attack hit the directional pad all the way over fee style. You know Marin like balls to the wall. And at this point, I think Liverpool was like, all right, man. Bring it on. You can't break down pretty much challenging Tottenham like we're going to give you all the possession. Do what you want. I don't think you can break this down and you know what Blitzer pools bluff paid off and it worked perfectly. That's why it turned out to be a boring game. Because Liverpool who showed up didn't seem like the had the boots under them. They didn't seem as excited for the game in Tottenham, just played like they had excellent passing in the midfield. But in the final third, they just couldn't produce anything. Yeah. I will tell you what I did not expect that from Liverpool in any scenario that I dreamed up in my head, and I dreamed up, plenty of scenarios that was one thousand percent unexpected. I don't I don't think I've ever seen your club, do that to such an extreme and, and very Marino. Ask very Marino, as and that's I, I really hate that should I hate it when he did it at Chelsea when he did it United. And I just hate that style of play. And to see it at in a final from such an attacking team was the wacky est thing that I've ever seen in my life behind soco thrown up his arm in the penalty box. But it was incredible that Tottenham was really never able to break Liverpool down. They held that ball so well in, in the area that dangerous area. In Liverpool's half and we're able to pass it back, recycle that attack start anew, but they were never really able to Pierce, the box and put Alison on the pressure. I think he only actually had to save two shots by the end. I'm not into a very chill day he didn't get. And that's that's just the exact one the exact opposite of what I wanna see in the final in the exact opposite of what I would see this. I thought taught him would would definitely be able to Pierce that defense as they have been able to before. So it surprised me that Liverpool was okay with a one zero lead in the first minute and just fucking everybody back. So it was kind of a self imposed born game four show. But it was still a super exciting tactical match up from that standpoint. Like you said, it's it was unexpected in super wonky, and the Liverpool team executed to perfection, whether it was Matty Van Dyke Robbo Trent Alexander hembo in the mid field and Milner when he came on a region when he came on. He he defended the most of the time that he was on the pitch. And they just played on the counterattacks os, such an unlivable Polian victory. It threw me off. I think that's why CNN Hendro and Liverpool win the Champions League. Just feel like real life, didn't feel like a final, yet, Liverpool is just here to like. Step on your fucking throat. You know, I mean they're here to like kill and to see them. Just take a step back and let the opposition like take the pressure on. I think that's really incredible. By your Klopp side, because your cloud was usually like whatever we're going to give up two goals, but we're going to score four into see him transition to this manager, who can switch tactics. When things change in the game such as scoring early goal in the first, like three minutes. I think that's that's, that's the marks of a great manager. It was a very very odd game. There was a couple of good chances by sawn, even though he had a couple of very heavy touches. But there's a couple of times sawn was like right in there like trying to do his like cut in from the wing which ended up like giving Liverpool some fits, but at the end of the day, when you have Virgil Van Dyke, who's the best defender in the world, it's you're going to have a tough day trying to break him down, especially when you're dealing with a not fully fit squad. So congrats Liverpool. I really don't have too much elyssa say about this game, which is very surreal, again, seeing Georgie Henderson little pup steps and lift up the trophy with the fireworks and confetti. I never would have thought this, like, especially Jordan Henderson, who's gotten so much dick and incredible story about his father getting the throat cancer. Did you hear about that, like that he said that his dad wouldn't like, watch any of the matches give pressure? And then he ended up watching him win the. Champions League right. Then and there in person that big hug, and you can just see how all the players were hugging each other. You're Klopp afterwards, and people will say this is a shitty final what we had some of the greatest semifinals, and quarterfinals of all time in the Champions League this year. So I don't think anyone should be upset at all, you know what, not all finals are great. Okay, I'm gonna say it not all finals turn out to be, you know, unreal man. City Tottenham comebacks and you know Liverpool comebacks against Barcelona men. UPS G, I X. You know, the list goes on like this whole, this whole champions campaign is sucks that kinda ended on a dud. But if you're a Liverpool fan who gives a shake at ended today, you walked away with the fucking champions. Your six European Cup. That's congratulations. Guys. You did it as an as an arsenal fan into manage United fan. It pains us, and we're jealous okay because that's fucking sick. Yeah, I mean fourteen years, five coaches, to funnels out, and you win the biggest one of them all you caught the biggest fish and did it in a weird way. But the most efficient way for sure. Incredible story lines from, like have said, Hendro to most law coming back from being hurt by Sergio romo's. It was almost destined, not to happen and Liverpool fought. Destiny to make sure that it didn't happen for them. So real quick thinking about all these storylines earlier in the year two like, oh, was Alison virtual Van Dyke worth all the money. Oh, should Liverpool knocked themselves out of the Champions League. So they can focus on the league. Remember all those doesn't matter. They are all bullshit. Now, I remember Gary Neville was getting trolled by Jamie Carragher 'cause Gary Neville had a quote earlier in the you're saying that same thing saying, oh, like Liverpool should get out of the champions, the focus on the league. Jamie Carragher having a laugh. You know what I mean and to think that they are one point away from the double, you know, one point away. If it wasn't for a historic man city side. That's, that's just insane. Yeah, I it's, it's crazy. You know, with the end of this year, all the trophies that could be one have been one. I'm just thinking about the next season man. I'm just thinking about ooh who's next who's going to lift the trophy. What are the story launch for the next season, going to be give me that shit inject that shit into my veins? I'm like a like a elephant. I have no attention span. Ooh, soccer's done. I've nothing to look forward to until August. Seventh, I don't know when the next season. Whoa fridays. The women's World Cup. Martin let you forget my nothing to look forward to until. Friday and August seventh. Yes. Yes. Speaking of which Champions League recap unreal. I wish the atmosphere was a little bit better in Madden dragon sucks. I don't do hair like Kevin. Let me go into old man, ran, okay? Are you going to go into your imagine dragons, rant is this? Yeah. Yeah. Under it's the thunder. Stupid song first off stupid song. It sounds like nursery rhyme. If you like imagine dragons, all you are the worst type of people, Secondly. Why is there a musical before soccer games? It's not the Super Bowl. Thirdly, wise. They're a musical number in the middle of the Super Bowl. Nobody cares. Nobody went to the Super Bowl to watch the halftime show. Nobody went to the Champions League. Final to see dumb ass McGee and his two white friends sing thunder. No, I'm gonna I'm gonna be some drums all hold your. Yeah. Fucking gong it up guy and so people spend thousands of dollars. And guess what? They wanna see they wanna see Harry Kane flop, they don't care about you. So stop doing that. I know it's to make it more cool and modern. But it drives me up the wall, I have a half a mind to write a letter to get a petition. I'ma start a petition to stop stop putting music in sporting events. I come here for sports. I could give two shits about music when I wanna listen to music on this in a music, damn God. I can't wait to be sixty and this can be justified each preach Queen. Okay. So that was Champions League recap before we get into some fan questions. There's a couple headlines, we would be a missed not to mention Jose Antonio Reyaz has passed away. Former arsenal Savita legend. Part of the invincible squad. His years, the oa-to are so years when Europe league with severa was this via academy player died in a horrific car crash at only thirty five I believe he was playing in the Spanish, second division or something like that. Horrible news. It was very sad because I was with my good friend Scott who is a big via fan use texting all this via fans, and they were very upset. And as an arsenal fan, I saw all the tributes by former players you Fernando, Lorenzo did a nice tribute actually at the Champions League honoring him. You could see his former teams like Fernando Llorente very sat on the sidelines. There's a great if you go on sespe aber gases, Instagram. He had a whole paragraph talking about when he moved to London when he was sixteen. He got brought into him. He didn't know anything about the country and Ray as kind of took him under his wing. So and from everything, I've read each is a top, you know, pure class kind of guy, top notch guy really sad to see him die at such a young age. And, you know, he's the soccer world is going to miss him tremendously. Yeah. Absolutely. Absolutely a legend for both of those respective clubs. And to wake up last week with that news, it's, it's sends shockwaves around the soccer community. So my thoughts go out to his family, his friends and, and his teams in all the people that he affected over the course of his, his lifetime. So incredibly sad news to come out of Spain. But as always when something so horrific happens, the soccer community comes together, and really does Justice to his name and to anybody's name. So that's, that's the one bright spot in this, and, you know, his memory will be cherished forever by by all those people whose lives. He's touched. So Kev with that out of the way, we want to touch on any other news. Or do you want to jump right into fan questions? Oh, the only other thing I had was, you know this transfer season. You know this is the time we're teams get hope he knew what team, you know, who has had, you know, has always had the worst kind of luck Real Madrid. You know, they never win anything, you know Martin. They recently signed. No, they just this Champions League white like not seeing them in this final weird bright. They're never in this Luca Jovic from Frankfurt has. Transferred over to Madrid for, I think a fifty something million fifty six fifty three. I don't remember the figure million euro transfer to Real Madrid had a amazing season of Frankfurt twenty seven goals or something. You know, our stats department will be right on that. Yeah. Early signing. So you think him and has are teaming up. Could be a deadly deadly duel up top mean that big bad us. I think that that's their hope. Their thought I know they're top through transfer targets the summer are, are has our name more in Imbaba, so pair, any combination of, of the three of them with each other, and it's, it's going to be bad news. Bears for anybody. That's their fire line and Jovic has been proven himself for the past couple of years. So I'm excited to see this new ram Madrid definitely seems like it's being Bill Inza Danes image. They got youngsters. They got some older legends at the squad. So I would love to see row Madrid back that shit up. Grab Ericsson grab Imbaba neymar were hazard and called a done day and just build for the next year and then have a bad ass super team in the next two years. Three years. Yeah. I mean Real Madrid they bounce back. Pretty quick. Don't they, so, you know, just hate to see them just, you know, just tough times on Real Madrid. You know, just always, you know, just the, the bridesmaid never the bride, right? Marin god. Damn Real Madrid. It's tough for them. It's real fucking tough for them. Okay. Let's move into fan questions. Are you ready? Yeah. Yeah. Oh, let's break for a quick ad right now. All right. We're back. So Martin are you ready for questions now? Heck yeah. Okay. First question comes from the high press podcast. He says, Indica or sativa oh, I think this is a we'd question. What's, what's the difference between indicates sativa one is like the head high ones like the body I like such a narc right now? Fuck. Kevin's guys can't ask them that you guys are going to get knocked off. Into sativa is, I think, when I went to Colorado with Tyler we were doing because it's legal there, I can say, I was I don't of course I don't smoke weed here in Philadelphia. That would be illegal, those decriminalized when I was in Colorado, I think I had a lot of sativa because that's the one that's like makes you energized. And like gives you them mind. High, I think, and that was sick. I had a bunch of those, like, Gumy's really cool. And I think the Indicas the one helps you fall asleep. So I think I had a pen that did that before, and that was kind of sick. So I think I would pick sativa over Indika. And then again, I could be mixing them up, and I don't know anything and I'm dark, so I don't know. Kevin's w narc. Don't listen to anything you says, in the couch for sure. Yeah. Couch locked for sure. Next question young leg at shope AJ says, what is the warm feeling in my loins? It's us. It's you listening to us. That's Sochi smooth voice that MPR voice of Kevin j Pettit settling. Two one oh four point two lads podcast. Ready for some smooth jazz all night long. Okay. Next question at row, row shooter says, what is the making of a good lad? Oh, more in what makes a good lad? I think beer soccer. I mean those are definitely too. You know, shit talking but friendly shit talking like you got to be able to you got to be able to shoot the shit. And be able to take it. What else? I mean, the, the standard the bar isn't that high just drank with us talk, some shit with us and watch them sports with us. And. You'll be aby. Yeah. If you like soccer, and beer. Yeah. You, you had like beer if you like soccer, cool, like I'm fine with that. Or if you just like beer and not soccer, you're kind of allowed, so also your, your lead your total ad. Next question comes from Swindon, devil CMF. See he says it's three questions. First question next American to come to the premise. Ooh, good. Qua-. Timothy way. No. Heck, yes. G. Over there. No, I think he'll stay in Scotland and not play for the easiest league who play for the Scottish league, I would say. Out say McKinney. Just sergeant get a ginger another Alexi Lalas Guetta ginger throw that ginger in and. What's his name that young goalkeeper, who was just signed by Manchester City? Oh, yes. So he's definitely playing in the prince Stephan Stefan. Yes. Accent on? Yeah. He's definitely. Well, he's definitely going to be playing in the print. Yeah. Yeah. That's my bet. Okay, pretty safe bet. All right, next question can United or arsenal. Get back in the top four next year. I'm going to say no. I'm going to say one of them will. Oh, that's actually that's a that's a safe bet and no widget one. But I'm going to say one of them will. I'm going to say neither. All right. Realistic, but yeah, that's pretty dark, but pretty true next question from James Copeland are Sunderland reporter oh my God. James. How the hell are you? He's been on the pod. He asked the question. He says is Kev satisfied with Emory and arsenal. I mean yeah I'm pretty satisfied Emory using this squad. He has I mean he took us your Europa league final even though we got shipped pumped. Now exactly getting the most support from the board or STAN Kroenke. And, you know, he's doing what he can with this kind of, you know, give the guy time. Okay, I'm satisfied. I think he's shown you can win at home, which I think is important, and you just gotta you just gotta get away man. Just gotta get better way. But I am. I am sad. I'm not like crazy and like I'm not crazy about who ni- Emory, but I am. I will say I am satisfied. I got nothing dad here. I am not or an arsenal fan. Okay. Fair next question sky at underscores guy says who does Barcelona need, and who they who do? They need to get rid of definitely too messy for. Yeah. He's he's, he's the he's cute. The issue partial owner, for sure. Definitely get rid of Cotino is just disagree. Really? I just don't think he's working out man. I think he's like a HAMAs Rodriguez situation where he just, you know it's just not working out. I don't think he's, he's doing great. But I think that, you know, in in two years when. Messy either leaves or assess a much diminished role. Then couscous will be twenty eight. He'll be in the prime and I think he could do. All right. For a couple years. He's a great personna keep around even if he just becomes a sub player who cares, if you have to pick and choose keep him around for a low bench threat. I, I would get rid of PK faster than shrimp fried rice, my dude, that guy is old and liable is getting more liable. The longer he sticks was Shakira, Shakira. And there might be a connection there. I don't know. But I think he needs something I'm titty could go with delight coming in ship them out, ship. Both your center megs out. All right. So who do you think they need probably grease? Mun Valby, nice ad. They got a grease man so good job there. What isn't official yet? No, but I mean, pretty much pretty B. Oh, come. Maybe he won't them who I think they need a replacement for boost gets. That's how I think they need cutting keys, you know, he's been kind of, like, you know, the fucking the, the cow bell. You know, the guy who's just been like running around the pitch and doing all the work, but not getting all the credit like I think he's, he's running out a legs. So I think nice central defensive mid might be kind of crucial. In our tour of Dallas, still there, which should be filling in that role. But I don't know what they haven't really using him too much. I don't know if it's like injury or just not working in into Valverde's plan as it was. But who knows we'll see the new manager will be next question. What defenders arsenal most likely to acquire? Are they getting a winger this is from Sancho at post John? I would say most likely to acquire everyone is saying Titi, but that sounds too good to be true. If I'm being realistic, I'm, I'm not too. Sure. Marin have you heard anything about any defenders coming ourselves? We just all lost, Liechtensteiner, who's supposed to be the veteran, who's supposed to teach us everything and us shit. I know y'all laws, Liechtensteiner and Iman rail and Mustafay are probably gonna follow. I haven't really seen anything Saulat you know, in terms of trying to target a player or not. But I just wanna see if you guys are gonna call back, Calum chambers, and rob holding 'cause, I think if, if you guys if arsenal was and I apologized, but if arsenal was smart, they would be trying to start subbing those players and give them some more top league Prem experience experience. Whether that means starting five games each season at arsenal or coming on as a regular substitute. I thought that would have been smart to do for the past couple years, and rob rob was hurt this year. So you can't really blame rob and then Callum was playing off at full fuck yet, south Fulham yet, he was former formerly of Southampton. Currently of Fulham but is big daddy's or snow. Yes. Yes. Yes. Good. Good. Yeah. Remember when it was like the English, you know. Arsenals supposed to be the complete English side of Jack. Callum ocu-. Did you see I I forgot the Menges oxes quote after the Liverpool Champions League game? God, dammit, where he said like this is for all you Googlers out there. I know you were all like so happy that we God. It was it was just embarrassing for arsenal fans. I knew he meant well, but it wasn't good. Are we getting a winger? Well, we need one. Dan, Bailey Barcelona would be sweet. But that's like again reaching that will get that. So I haven't really heard anything about wingers either, but who knows still very early in the transfer market next question at m j will six Matt will says, what are the odds potch stays with Spurs? I would say seventy percent right now. Actually. No. I'm going to bump that up to eighty five. Yeah, I'm gonna say it's pretty pretty high, I would say there is a very good possibility. Can I feel like? What's it called Pocchettino will go to Dan Levy and be like, hey, dude. Come on. Like I took this squad. That was injury. Riddled nowhere as like top quality as the other top size and your new events Spurs. But if you compare like you're starting eleven against like the Ventas the Barcelona's, even Liverpool man city, I don't think it's close but not that close. You know what I'm saying Martin, and I'm not trying to be rude. And the fact that he's had to transfer windows of no players to get them to a higher level. I mean he's been playing ball with the board. Dan, Levy for so long that I think he's got to be like, come on, guys. This is this is bullshit. The state the stadium is built, you guys it was supposed to be built for like four hundred million. You spent like a billion dollars on it like come on, like throw me, a fricken bone here. Yeah. If, if I'm pods that's basically, the tomato would give Dan Levy say. Look. I brought this team without any support from your side to the Champions League final and and could have won it. If it was a different day of hurricane was fit, if Liverpool was more injured, what have you whatever the circumstances are? Tottenham had a chance to win that. And, and say give me the money to get back to the Champions League funnel and win it or I'm gone. Because I I've delivered on the potential of the squad, and more. I hit the ceiling and punch right through it and then hit another ceiling and punch right through it without any boxing gloves, because you won't give me money to buy them. So if I'm pod. That has to be the last stand. You've shown all your cards. You have shown the world that he's a phenomenal coach and any team would be lucky to have him if Spurs one him give the man, the money pay the man because obviously, he's special so me, the money show me the mother trick in money. So that's it. That's it. If pods doesn't get paid. He ain't gonna stay. Yeah. I mean he's already on a good managers deal. But it's definitely more for the squad. I think you could tell after he was crying after the I x match like how much that team means to him. So I really think he's staying. I think he's going to have a little bit more control of what is going in and out at this club next question comes from our discord, channel. It's a place where people really don't have that many people to talk to about soccer come join, it's chat room. Lots of cool dudes in here. Talk soccer beer. Other sports. It's awesome comes the question comes from drunk uncle. He says. After seeing Klopp hammer hammered drunk on the open top bus parade. Is there a more likable manager curly in the world football Martin? Yes. Vermont who active who's more likable than your Klopp from my perspective? Yeah. Let's get your perspective Martin all zoo. Allegra unite podge Marino, hit Marino's more like marinas more likable than Klopp, get the fuck out of my. Vakhin Genghis Khan, anybody that you could even think of is more like we'll than clock clubs a fake. You heard it here first in authentic. It's a fake smile. He's fake drunk. He's drinking duels, you fools? All right. So Martin's obviously high on Indika ends achieva your club is the most likable manager in the world. It's there's no doubt about it. The guy just. How can you not smile, just like looking at that crazy German 'cause he's eighteenth and fake here? Oh my God. Martin. If you, you shouldn't not have turn this question over to me. I never doing that again. I've never never never ever. All right, next question from our Instagram gives a follow labs podcast. Mr Hans w says, who's the best right back in the world. Jordy all he jumps to mind. Well, Trent Alexander I think you have to make start talking about him. More. Danny. Shani Alvis, Denny Alvez's Joshua, Kevin Dany office is getting old Carver hall. Kyle Walker Kimmage I think catches a good show. Yeah. I'd say. But then you also got the legs of. Oh, shoot ex-chelsea Quadra show. You have you have a lot of really great right bags. I guess if you wanna make distinction between a rightback fullback, you could have left choices, but first one that comes to mind in terms of legacy is, is Jordi Alba, Danny Al Alvarez best in the world. Currently right here right now. I'd say Kimmage I feel comfortable saying that I would I think it'd be a good argument for Trent. I think he's phenomenal. But I mean maybe it's just a hubris, maybe just a moment, but I just love Trent Alexander Arnold so much. And just I mean, his assists is just work. His defense is just he's just he's just so great cow. I'll take dick outta my mouth now. All right. Next question from Sima linski, if Virgil Van Dyke keeps this form where will he full on the top? List of EPL defenders. Okay guys, let's stop. Let's relax. Please Virgil vandyke as only been the league for a very short time. He hasn't even won a Premier Li get. Yes. Virgil Van Dyke is the best defender in the world right now. But, like we need to give it some time, let it settle lit it breathe. I think Virgil Van Dyke is absolutely amazing. Because then you're gonna get into question at his peak. He was better. You know, I hate those arguments, I hate that. I feel you'd be very subjective. But if he is to keep this current form if he wins a couple premier leagues this is all if he's hypotheticals than yes, then you can start making conversations about it right now. I think it's way too early. Yeah. I mean took the words right out of my mouth. He had a phenomenal world class. One of the best in the world seasons. So let's keep it right there. I think. Yep. Paul nominal job of describing John or not describing Jonah's. He's not Kobe Bryant. But he's lied. Kobe bryant. He's not shack, but he's like shack. It's just to say he's fantastic. But this is genuinely I shit you not a full year and a half of being really fucking. Good. Let's ease off. Let's pump the brakes boys before we put him in where does he rank in best in the world best in history. He's played amazing for year and a half and won a trophy pump the brakes, we can appreciate what is doing now just fine without ranking him that the man grow. I know everyone just wants to jump the gun and this is not shitting on the person who has the question. It's a very fair question people like on my door Kevin keep talking. All right. I'm gonna keep talking. But I feel like we just like the jump that. Done like we were already like Martin was saying sending genus to like the best player in the world. And then we saw how he can become very one dimensional. Berlin dyke had incredible stat line this year where he went up against like messy Soir as Kane all these different players and no-one dribble past him. It was like sixty four dribbles none. Got past them. Verti- Van Dyke could be next. Messy number two in the bound Dur in, I wouldn't be. Would it be crazy? If you want it, I, I probably would think it's crazy 'cause I think Messi had won the greatest individuals seasons ever, but, you know, I think he's definitely right there in the running, and it's been, you know, knowing like seeing defender win the bound your more than me. Let me. All right. All right. All right. All right. I am back. Someone was pounding on my door. I'm sorry, guys. Hey. But. I absolutely agree with you in in how you said he definitely deserves to be up there in the balloon door. Ranking my only my only shout against him, winning the balloon door door. Just doesn't seem fair man. It doesn't seem fair that he gets to be good for a year and a half. And when when the. You know, most individ most honored individual ward ever in, in the soccer world. When there are the lights of Terry, romo's, PK Chile, ni Bono Chee. Tear are already said Terry. You know, just fin nominal historic legendary defenders who didn't even get a shout. So I, I don't think that he, he should win just because it does not make sense to have him win this trophy when precedents. Yeah. Right. When, when legends like that didn't even get a show or did not really come close. When you have just another brilliant season from messy who's been doing this year after year. And, and another brilliant season from Rinaldo who's been doing this year after year, and it just feels like if it went to anyone other than them, it's a Luca Majdic thing, all over again, but nobody would bitch about it because everybody loves the story of Liverpool, Virgil Van Dyke. So to me, it just doesn't seem fair for him to win. And, and try. Truly legendary people can't even begin to question what they've done in soccer donate, get a shout, but that just don't seem right? But I'm just fifty to bitch. I what you're saying it would set a weird precedence when these other like historic defenders didn't win when they had historic seasons or. But I do I do the argument for Virgil Van Dyke is about individual year. It doesn't matter about history. It's like how good did you do in this year? That's what the bound your is about. So for sure for sure. But then you can make the arguments look at what Sergio Rama's has done individually for Real Madrid. Dude has individually be been a clutch managed clutch. Gene, a cheat code for the past fuck in seven years, and in two Champions League finals, he has single handedly won it for them. You I don't think that, that type of clutch gene can be ignored while Virgil van dykes brilliant defending can be given the below door. I just don't see a connection there. Yes, he had an amazing phenomenal season. But. Other defenders have done just the same. If not better or slightly worse, it doesn't seem anything out of the ordinary. It's just someone new doing it. Yeah. I mean, I think those are all fair points and we'll have to see. I mean, the bound your who knows you. We can't even like rely on anymore. All right. Next question Brock Bjork sexy. K says how mad is France going out in the round of sixteen to the USA in the u twenty World Cup they Ned they big mad, you did think we're going to bring it up because we weren't until we got a question about it. They big mad. Dude, I'm telling you USA watch out are you twenties. Whereabout USA's about the have a World Cup with the men's in ladies you ready for this. Ready? Okay. Next question, Bobby poll off, says, do you think about we'll go to China? I really hope not. I saw today's that they're trying to lock up the two the two strikers to attacking Ford's for arsenal. So luck is in a bomb young, but, you know, would it be out of character of a bomb young to go try and search out money? I don't think it'd be crazy. Yeah. So I don't think you know, if that happened, I'd be like fun arsenals going to come in, like seventh. But, you know. I don't see it happening. But that's just the whole arsenal fan of Mead. Because it's that's never going to die even if I die. So mar in DC that happening. Not really. I mean, I don't think he has anywhere to go. He hasn't lit up the world at arsenal in and Avas, what now twenty nine thirty. Yeah. He's up there now. I think he's even older. Yeah. Yeah. He's twenty nine now. So I don't think a lot of people are getting ready to propose to him. So if I'm would stick around, but at the same time it wanted surprise me if arsenal decided to so bombing that seems like a totally STAN Kroenke thing to do just so although who almost won the golden boot.

In every movie, I love about gang landing saver full English breakfast on the right way, bacon, sausage, mushrooms tomato beans, and somehow all that is best consumed in English. Greasy spoon. Cafe lesson meal more validation of life after all these years of talking about the Premier League day and being not invited? When MBC do their pundits in the pump thing. Very proud moment for men in blazers, you know, be invited to go to you know, and show game of football. I'm just excited for the points. I'm excited for the palace. Boardroom plunking cellular sensational down to the pitch. I'll be up in the boardroom. He has this Crystal Palace. These parish e Crystal Palace official eagles wine, you wait till you taste it. Brewed on location at Selhurst Park in the homestyle root section amazingly. It's made by Roman. Abramovich is partnered Eugene yet Chelsea his wind serve at a palace. So every single save the Steve Parrish. Ask Chelsea football club, get richer, and rich and the money can't get bigger and bigger primarily funny enough token about that you and I are going to England the very Wheaton English Premier League taking its first steps right into the crapper. Courtesy of the league news of the European Super League. By don't tear evil. Yeah. Rod German magazine, dish Spiegel reported on Friday that foods English a'mensch if that that five English clubs livable. Awesome. Chelsea in the two men just as Ramon so cool to break away founding members for the new elite sixteen team competition which would start in twenty twenty one. It's not clear whether the league simply replace the Champions League or all football would impact domestic football. I mean, I just love people watching TV shows Raj where they bring on experts to talk about it who have no idea what anybody's talking about because these are Dr evil like figures meeting in back rooms clubs after they've with sharks swimming pools under them, it's not it's not really public information label branded Chelsea winding something wrong with that nothing wrong with that. What do you think? What do you think? Well, I don't know what to think because we don't really know what we're out exactly all of the passes stops anybody before the pundits on television. They all make a living. Covering the Premier League. So there will all we hear is. She's never gonna take this gainst everything we believe really because. Jeff AP, Stacey Albany tweeted. I think we well the best description. I've heard of the whole thing she said if the European Super League ever happens it would officially be MLS on steroids with no pro relegation and just not good for the game going. I say I love the Premier League at a loved the champions the, but even your can quote when he's asked about it described it, well, the idea with sadness in his heart. It sounds really nice. Could it sounds like much less games and much more money? And who doesn't like that? I mean, we're not for more money. They also in this time like over to Britain, everybody, bemoans, Brexit, Brexit Brexit. We really want to be part of Europe, surely a European Super League Brexit era. The European Super League is far more powerful effective than the European Union Roach. So I think it's a very good time. Also Superleague the European Super League European super Lee who. League when you can have a soup. He's just a matter of Premier League Superleague simply is way better England or Europe Europe way bigger than the English Premier League. So I kind of I kind of liked the idea can if you know that you don't believe in Stanley in the empire that he created a marvel comics by also no American as you know, the most American thing about me not being American citizens, I passionately believe in the free market and the free market. You would say that you would not construct believe in sort of zero based budgeting that you start every year and do it again, you would not construct football the way it is. Now, if you inventing today you'd probably take the biggest teams in Europe and have them play against each other in a European Super League to go and do it in Super League. European. So I think is sort of inevitable and beyond the add on that. If you don't think is inevitable. You just made the key point. There's going to be more money and les speaking to people in the game in some of those Super League qualifying teams, they said the projections of what could be made between four and five times the amount that they carrying leveraging playing let's say the legs have you know, had this field who I'm a team. I love Tim eleven card runaway. When I mentioned those teams if the super Levy. Happen. Maybe everything could win the name. I think but more money less game. Who's gonna like that agents are going to like that agents and players like it? And I know this will not be good for fans. I'm not saying this man's. I'm not saying it's not good for fan. This is horrible for Faust horrible. If you think it's horrible. Double our terrible hit by ten divide it by two then multiply it by any teams to again, tomes it by two again for any fans of teams other than livable. Awesome. Chelsea and the two Manchester. It's a horrible the world idea. It's worse relegation but agents being relegated all of us. And in those five reporting for duty, you've been relegated. Yeah. I mean. Football pundits. Shaken the head good for the care about Cup. It's going to be picking. That's just my. Crazy gonna win. I want you right football, pundit of resented Li shaken ahead suggesting it's not okay leading journey. Henry winter. He tweeted a European Super League no relegation for its eleven founding. Members would have no sporting integrity for a start. Let alone the shit greed and against the idea that's private members club, not a proper competition. No risk. No drama. No credibility, though. Thanks cut to Henry wins. Reporting live from the European super g majesty United wondering why these would super does nothing. I dunno. I mean, all of these journalists did decry the nation the UEFA nations league, which by the way early days early doors. It's working quite well, it's been very very good fair. Change change won't make this clear. I hate the idea of the Super League hate the idea of the Super League to hate it all, but I do this. The teams do not care about sporting integrity. They gave up a long you just have to look at how many Chester city have pursued their reaction to fairplay threatening for that. They'd hire the thirty best lawyers in the world for fifty million dollars and just tie them up in litigation. They don't care about anything talk to the owners. They hate promotion relegation the, but they hate it. They hate being confined by regulations fair-play. They only care about one thing. And it's not football. It looney. Ask you one more question about European Superleague? 'cause I know most of our listeners the soccer version of the NFL most of most Jeff oh P's. I think you're gonna hate the idea of European Superleague, intrusive, you and I like spoken about it. And we sort of had the idea the Europeans. Much as we joke, but his the one we another. Today. To sink pob Superleague. Thing for a soup. But the one thing that I did think about when I laid my head on the pillow last night. So the super big mistake super super head super pillow. It was super lead the tip of breeze. This organs this against a fee for for this organs. This I think they'll hate it. Okay. So what how could this possibly be about idea? That's my one piece of logic. I started thinking about last night is a we really going to stand behind what fever and UEFA want yet or we're going to trust money grubbing agents house. I think we'll see the friend of my enemy is. I don't day semi the whole thing. Does people say it will never work this sound light? Watchet soccer version of the NFL essentially American funds of learn to love, and then some pundit saying further evidence fans don't care the big clubs don't care about the hardcore fans at say, they stop caring about their hardcore fan long long long. They could give a crap about Lahore co fans the ones who travel away to every game the ones you. Hey on every primarily Brokaw singing, the loudest the away fans. I mean, they do they cater to the emerging markets the far east the Middle East and us in the United States. That's the reality. The big clubs don't care about the hardcore fans of other smaller teams, the fans of these teams will travel to Paris and Barcelona and Madrid and Munich he's selling himself on the idea. It's easier to get from London or at this. I live to Madrid and is to get from livable to Southampton yet takes three days. Which two. Anyway, you can arrive in ship Kelly. Nothing may come with the Super League described in this document. I won't be clear, but this will happen in my lifetime. Football teams more than football. They love they love do cats. They love the cash, they love the bucks. The big teams will line up for whatever gets more money playing. The best teams in the world in a structure free of relegation. They'd love that. And then till life is found on other planets like Mars and the best five teams on earth will dump the other eleven and played the best five teams on Mars in a super suply and just keep going on and on until Manchester City the only team representing planet earth against Clinton gone and tattoo. That was a probe that went through the solar system that that probe may have become from some alien civilization. I've read about this this morning this probe to super pro. Shoes there's going to be Super League. I believe this all ends up in thousand years. Manchester City's just jettisoning all of their other just shafting all it's just gonna fritter away the Super League until they push all the others out the hot air balloons, Manchester City. Is the first alien to represent a Premier League side. Alien per from thing plex one hundred goals in the league. All they walked gave with his little green Lang. Gate, some some things never change. We come back show. We've also at livable after their electric free level the free love freeway that one one draw on Saturday. I celebrate my main squeeze trying not to offend my side chick while recapping Chelsea versus pilots, and we marvel rash guards composure as he bangs in a last minute winner and United's two one victory. Born mouth plus MLS playoffs guitarist but not as big as the Super League. Eagle screech monster truck rally to the football Rahel. Leo, I've got but Mahanama third first of the day and raise my gloss to voting the firm in my lifetime. You love. What was the point of this going to be a universal Superleague? There's no point in voting air probes civilization. That's coming into. You maybe think this democracy thing mentioned city just going to run the world in the end. Anyway, right. I'm all for that pep. I've got my buddy Mahan yet. I in my lifetime voted in a general election anywhere in the world. I was too young to vote in England, and it felt remarkable really nothing ever done before my life. David not gonna tell the whom to vote for Bill listener, I'm not I don't want to tell you who I voted for anyone who's angry about me saying vote, which I am about today. Go yourselves hard questions about why they feel that way about bedrock value in our country, and I have had a number of people or possibly bought over Twitter. Trying to tell me I shouldn't tell people to vote. So if you're listening to the pod today on Tuesday, and you pose still open do it. I will say my my polling station was like a civic jewel. I used to read Richard scary books when I was and they made America just seem so civic. Beautiful, and it was a civic jewel of one them. People of all racist type ages coming together with a real joy, if only real life could be like the feeling inside that polling station. There's nothing more important more powerful than voting today and a raise this bird, but fan blood fam- to America and American democracy, courage. Absolutely. We love America. We love American democracy. Just a small note roads though, you can vote in England when you're eighteen and you did go to university there and you're clever, but not that lever. You could've decided he decided not to vote. I couldn't couldn't get registered. Legal. In lead. Because you'd you'd crossed into your vegans then. So funny, okay arsenal. One live appeal. One primarily utopia in which the football is exciting. The managers gregarious and the gun Soraya, plenty of after a back and forth. I hop Liverpool. Drew first blood on sixty minutes veer superstar Hammas Milner. But with the game winding down an awesome facing their first loss in twelve they found an answer through on exander lacquers a phenomenal spinning shot from the Frenchman left the game knotted at one a good result on fails. But both sides a great game for the neutral. Dave ever is a fascinating game reality also on the symbolic level. Because this matchup is really a markup for both teams for Liverpool measure with the seriousness of their title challenge. An awesome. It was an acid test for club that it only won five of the lost thirty two games against the big six. We've our arsenal bat really top four contenders. Those are the questions going into it. But what I loved despite heaviness, the eggs to send you links from the off debut to will. This was open optimistic times astonishing need it. I'd have I sort of felt games little neutralize. But you made the point which I think is is accurate that the teams neutralized each other offensively because they're both. So afraid of how their defenses are that they own for wellness each other offensively they had their infantry people going at each other like plot fist. So that they didn't have to use the artillery at the back because I know they're artillery's in that good cramming particularly arsenal and their concerns about the defense. They decided and this is somewhat establishing they were going to match Liverpool by going mega -tarian ozo- lack as an Obama Yang together for the first time and the memory, essentially Emory following untouchable. Sean Connery's advice. He pulls a knife. You pull a gun Khandu, Sean Connery? He sends one of yours to the hospital where you send his David to the moral much better than I am e Kim's with most Salomone many, Bobby chompers. Yeah. Come on with a front four training balance. Other end. Bold crazy move, Dave countering livable's attacking trade in China over on the other end that could've should in the flood gates that could have been a narrative flipping brutal defeat. It could have just been a disaster. And I did wonder for us watching because team really amazing at the beginning. Especially Tarare just five four five flinging himself around like J, J watt such good looking raunchy so impressive. When you say, he's what asked of crying out for a true warrior at the heart. I midfield for the last decade. She think it was exhilarating for awesome funds here going. Oh, my God, we can fly we can do this. Or when they like history muscle memory against Liverpool. Tell us it's a trap hits a track track. I think there's a lot of that monk sauce fans, especially after the game the previous week against palace, which they were ahead towards the end. And they eventually had a had a to draw that felt like a loss. But I think they're very excited by Emory. New nightmare is very exciting manager to watch on the touchline. Awesome was all like, I analyze this in the most of European continent away Emory is just he's up and at it. He's like he's like a stealth American Roach. He's like up at it. Like, a boss still working, call totally totally. That's his thing. He's almost like an I felt occasion. When you come to the sideline that you're wait a minute. I'm meant to be the ones energy. Here's what does this man with degree? She has it's like he's he's to me. And then he also hugs his plans every now and then Roach is really taking a page out of yoga's playbook. Describe the feeling of what jostle best for me said I'm constantly waiting for Kello Torreta ran onto the pitch. Gin. Just kick a Liverpool player in books. They did run. The look I mean Liverpool there the money go wrongly flanked off side that a great loss stage tackle on Saleh by Jacka, which is reckless and impressive in equal measure. And there's a game went home. You felt Liverpool with studying themselves reminding themselves and gone this just arsenals for they will book. There is a mistake in them. You knew the Liverpool near the arsenal. New their mistake mistaken them, and it came it came from flapping Boone lane, and it goes to the management of all the players in world football. You do not want this ball to fall to its Hammas Milner, one of the most exciting attacking threats in football and not just on the penalty spot Roach. He's slams it. He kicks it. It felt like he kicked it twice into the grass, and he's sort of caromed it he's sort of bounced it into the net. Trick shock t- pounds it into the growth centimeters posit agonize Lena's zones, and then centimeters Moustapha claiming on the line think he told himself. It's just a penalty strike jam striking clean. He is. So you call it with the point. It wasn't me. It was my cold it that Hammas was going to score a goal when you think, of course, it was going to be so reliable consistent one the new flash. No height. He's like like a great bass player in a band Grateful Dead funds. It reminds me Philemon just complete anti charisma, but my Godwin. He'll the might sink friend of the devil for minute is mesmerizing, and it was magical to watch him. Squish fiftieth league goal, of course, huge huge respect for James Molyneaux left to interview one day and find out how we think about the game about life, and there's a preached to base. Weight off. I just always think about the Twitter account boring. Jones mill note, which is the imaginary fake academy. James Milner that imagines him just talking about toast and saying things constantly teammates who ignore him the whole time. So that's because we don't know how to category doesn't fit into the categories of normal. Blink footballers. Yeah. But beneath that kind of competent professionalism fascinating approach. I think to football and life, and I'd love to tap into it. But before we finish talking about the game and a huge test for all of their Puna. Find data give copy impressive how they responded right there because old arsenal would have just assumed the position crumbled listed, a very very different teams a team with a center Roach with a with a spiny sent you talked about toreros unbelievable in the middle of the Phil. But they've got some guts all over the part. They've got players going for the tackle who will like fight players up front who viciously competitive plans with their I say swag. Swag amongst some more than the way to me a symbol of this new transformed. Aslam Emory has reportedly been handing out a stream of self help books and personal betterman to his players. I don't know what he's giving jacker. Whether it's Tom Robbins awesome. Suzie Orman you've earned it don't lose it. But my God they are resilient now. And we we used to laugh at how invisibly, and they were they resilient now. And it is it will be symbol of that new also always telling suit, but the decisions used to make on the ball made Everton ever Ross Barkley look sane in comparison Ameri is taking this kind of tactical wicked imposed on that stunning visionary. Pas into space. Alex to Alex passed was a slide rule. Purse Roach slide-rule passer Moby fines says was straight pass to a diagonal run and lack finishes. Tasty. Tasty goals Rochet, go bulletin, acidy, resilience, creativity brilliant. Qualities most of which we've not used in relation to arsenal for far too long. This was the most action packed incident filled optimistic frenzy glorious game I've seen in a while to teams play football the right way. I walked speed. I want to thank you for books needed it. It was a good point for both teams. Right. David. But the Meteo been going heart in Liverpool for relinquishing that lead. Yeah. Was it? Good point for both teams arsenal. I think is still trying to prove that they are top four contenders. Livable trying to prove that they are contenders to win the league. So I think there is a little bit more onus on Liverpool in this game. Even despite it being played I think in the end of the season, we're gonna look at that little mini league. We're gonna look at that many league the results of the top sixteen against each other. And I think this is going to like a bad result. I think this is going to look like a much better results livable than people are giving them for work law was frustrated the end of the game. And I believe the frustration. Only comes from just this book shooter perfection, the Manchester City, and I want you know, to be city. It's not just about the top six you have to somehow crack the hundred point target. They can a win eighty five percent of their games. And measuring against that kind of Ilene predator kind of perfection that they have this feels like I do agree with your point two. Also, it's a good result city aside to me football. A winner from this. Both teams passed the test and is refutable proof. Dave. Oh, awesome. Just a different prospect ready, very different style of football, very different style of manager very different competitive edge. Healy they present the beginning of the game in the middle of the game towards the end of a game. One more point from losing positions. Any Premier League side, which is using Liverpool will not back down arsenal or resilient. And if I was a Liverpool fan, I retain a sense of optimism and hope and dented to them that should survive intact from this game. You talked about in the shadow of Manchester City, they defeated Southampton. Six goals to one I don't think it was that close pet continues to write almost flawless code a city pump goal after artifices intelligence field goal past a very human Saint side city now averaging three goals a game wrote. They sit two points clear at the top with nine wins and two drools through their first eleven games Lhasa game of football. Sadly, I was watching an infomercial for the European super duty. I it was such a mismatch. She was in the blitz. Ration- a bludgeoning. It really was it was as if I was thrown into the ring I would've lasted longer actually if I was thrown into the ring against Anthony Joshua than Southampton. Did they three nil in eighty minutes? Mum the milestones. Seventh of the season hundred fiftieth goal primarily career for Cude in just as two hundred and seventeenth game. Two goals for rows reported too soon to be four hundred thousand dollar a week contract. Southampton's first big boy goal in five hundred and five minutes and the first one that city of conceded in an astounded six thirty. But the real talking point they'll food and being let his little child cage was pep south. Pep's outfit. Dave. Yeah. Well, I think we said on the TV show. That's a lot of cardigans cardigan cardigan with a hood. Yet was chunky. It was long little oversized a statement cardigan. And what the statement? I'm not sure what the statement was off. And do believe it said this on the show context is everything in fashion, and if pep lived alone in an apartment on the Upper West side doesn't cats that same cardigan would've look, so cool. Hannah MAC beat heated us, leave him alone. That man where garbage can fill rural sewage and still swag. If that's not a superpower. I don't know. What is Dave? And is double breasted blazer gang back to the issue. It's also wrote it was interesting underneath the cardigan. Because I think you've got to go into his thought process because he started with the layering shirt. Now really started with making co in inverted wingback idea. Why breeds? And his crew neck little T shirt. Then he put on a crew neck sweater over that many thought to put what I pulled on over this. I put a rain knows not put a jacket goes. This statement cardigan. It's sort of a jacket and cardigan it can do both jobs all and it has a hood hoodie person keeps trying to make spoons and knives at the name item. It's just khaki. It's just create mass. And for sport. Sport think the sport. We could make a fortune by doing the sports spoke spoke. The democracy started to be eroded vice books, I can make that case for Jake tapper on CNN tonight, whatever it was equal coming in with the hard issues thing do love about him other than that. Just absolutely treasonous and blasphemous against the Kirby. Whereas go would even the score that discarded quick need discarded, Wilfried bony. But there was a moment towards the end when boom when he was. Goals. He was the seventh minute one of city's defenders misplaced a pass when beserk on the sideline. That's what makes this city team. So bloody perfect. So bloody cyborg. We have a quick word. They've Southam to remember them couple years ago blasting eight goals personal in October two thousand four they've lost the reason to live livable of all their place. Now, there's no more reason for Southhampton to Southampton anymore. The can't they can't sell any more than the good is so sad. How that squad has been allowed to just ROY was so sprightly then are fielding long innings where there was once bail Calum chambers. Luke shore Fanti even love Manny. Lana schneider. Lynn and the ox. They want strolled feel for Southampton fence, they must be asking themselves. What happened and that was the point quick word. Also Roach razz as watching this game. He's a bloody good player. We laugh a lot of razz. We joke about him. Like, oh that was an accidental show even on the TV. Show is like he had a comedy missed before. He not in the combine both the comedy with and the goal in the same move, which is still unleashing progression. But his speed not in his speed is ability to keep the ball his little feet with that speed. It's just phenomenal. I bet you four hundred thousand dollars a week. How many sports do you think he's going to? What I'm going spokes? It leads. I'm going deep into sports. Okay. Chelsea three Crystal Palace one. If you like Alvar, oh Maradas and getting caught in the rain this game. This game was the euro. Even if that dad joke wasn't the Spaniard struck one on either side of half-time to help Chelsea pass the scrappy SAF London rivals Chelsea moving to second place palace or in forty Petrova love against you mistress. And was it for you. Dave as a life and love experience. It's difficult. Cheeto for goals Roach Chit all four goals must have been faking. Some of those chairs. No, I never thought little Petro's goal. It was cute. I would never thought the Chelsea we're going to lose this game from the moment started. Although Chelsea of not played very well against palace at home the last few seasons, but Chelsea was strolling Chelsea playing infectious football palace worked hard as they always do amazing Gulf man's towns. And no one was more surprised than Andrews Townsend. Side-netting that well over and the biggest story out of this game was Varo Murata two weekends ago in the home game against Man United being booed being derided by the Chelsea fans, and then just two weeks later always seems to be reborn under. Sorry. He's like he's really starting to flourish in the system. I think Musha series introducing cigarette. Come there's no smoking. Kid. What is it? Good for you breath. Fresh kills loving you get the goals flowing. Cool even cooler if you smoke. They even cool Kuba ways. It spoke with a king. What is mental whatever it is four goals in his last four games inside that incredibly good looking perfect for the there is a clinical striker off though proof in life as we said on the show. You should never settle. You can have. All right. David. You can while like about this game. I'll say this. It wasn't engrossing was sluggish at times from Chelsea view. They never seem to even when Pella school. They used the clinical confidence and resilience. You have to admire the also the fact that they can bring on Eden as substitute late in the game. It says a lot okay? Don't you kids smoke cigarettes for mirth one Manchester United to jersey marinas mob traveled to the house of the family carts and barely escaped with their lives. Bomber took the lead on eleven minutes through Callum Wilson, but United we're able to clone level on thirty five minutes via the deadliest Tony Adams since Montana.

Read about moment. I think that was a moment that European Super League organizers quietly cross Manchester United's name of the Asian list and added the mighty boom. Yes, we'll invite them to. You know, heated team so many proud traditions this season. The big tradition is not keeping a clean sheet. But boomers made a mistake. They didn't score several times to protect themselves from the contractually guaranteed. Marsh L goal, Dave. And it came on. You just can't stop scoring five and four for him. Marino, though, halftime admitted post-game open the luckiest manage in the Premier League could have been six two boys going on with this. He now halftime as it's known in the Manchester United locker room the moment when Josie Marino walked into the dressing room and says, which one of you pathetic, despicable telling this failures, you little wants to step up country, brilliant and save me this week. How does it work? This. We Marcus rush mid and up which one of the players that he's already demeaned publicly is gonna is going to it's going to step up. And so that they're not demean public. Actually, they may well be the mean publicly even if they do step up and go into it. I mean, it was little. Orcas rash. I just turned twenty one old enough not to bother to vote in America came on in the fifty six minute with Herrera United much more dominant much more direct than they were matter, and Fred and in the ninety second minute poor pauper suddenly switched himself onto give crap mode. And what happened what a move shimmy? Shimmy shimmy sends a great bulb. Marcus rash for still had something to do. You said this on the TV show the composure he showed his agent front of goal into calmly end up finishing Hoosier telegenic heated Roman stealing three wins in the draw from their last four in a league two of those winds coming from behind question is why do they start so dreadfully and slowly why? Terrified road. But bomber through a good team. Let's not discount. I mean, I think there is the sense of the lousy bomber through a really really good football team bombers Ashra name true team. All. Easy. And I think we'll see a lot of teams go down there and struggled this season. Marino said I can't understand it. When asked about the slow start. My Steph said the warmer was the best we've had I love the song attack attack attack. But you also need defensive stability. We don't have that it gives him more white hair. But you've enters a Manchester City, and they'll be celebrating to play you know, heated wolves to ton ham. Three Spurs jump three-goal lead and sixty minutes vehicles from lamelo, Lucas Moore, and Harry Kane, but with Spurs cruising twenty year old RG Premier League debutante Glenn Foyt gave away too clumsy penalties. Putting Marizzio poach Tinos recently lowered resting heart rate to the test. Spurs did hold on the leapfrog arsenal into fourth place. I had Spurs Cup bless third game in a week. Shook early injury to Dembele eight to storm into three nil lead, and then employed it poor when foot young twenty year old Argentine ball play. Center Hof only played a handful of first team games before moving to Spurs from students and he's still green still naive. Maybe needs to take smoking. David feel for him. Play along elder Farrell was a ratty caring trippy hell bent on making payments by his own corner-flag partitioning for the two. Amazing. This football game free store. Keno took about Spurs lack of respect for walls, which always haunted them. And by the Spurs hanging on for dear life, walls left. A rumor first half goal chalked off off side wrongly one over weekend. It was for refereeing. But this was a win the felt like a loss for Spurs lost felony glorious for walls third consecutive defeat for them Astle up next for that. So we'll see but Spurs David it's an odd feeling best art to the Premier League season ever everything feeling yet. We're talking about them less as real contenders than ever before. Just feels this team won ten of their loss. Thirteen games on the road. I would kill if the team I loved had done that. It doesn't the squad. Still woke up exhausted won't down by injuries stadium. Just design that's still lead. I I've never seen a more miserable for place, Tina Spurs. If I was a Spurs fan. I will be we'll see how good they are in person live and impersonal Crystal Palace's weekend broke Everton three never. On another team. We're gonna see this weekend Roach Brighton. One tricky dick Alison schools twice. Shame coleman. I since January nineteen forty-three manager Marcus silver, cooled Toffees best performance of the season. What does Everton's assistant manager and deputy director of football rock Helio thing. Chalk it up to an impressive win, which even I can't find the down. So yeah, I mean, Brian organized impressive. They are resilient. This was the best performance of the Marco silver. So this was our best performance of Myra to gills for ritual giving his full name. I'll do it. Spurs fans rail Madrid's rich, listen, I'm beginning ready. I must say every goal is already beginning to miss him. Multi-million good. You have found something negative to say about you just it's just a dog. Like, I love it. And I go end to end from Brian corner. Julius blistering ruthless counterattack four players guilty twice eleven churches will like generic Rambagh Selena. I can't remember whenever to last attacking force like John Lewis and Dave as Smith similar similar both Brazilian beaches in Brazil, just playing around with the great food whenever we schools is rich rich. They must be the idea that Steven Naismith is ever seen a grapefruit the lower people. What's that thing in the air? It's the son, Steve, it's horrible. I know I like miss to. He's a football. You got to kinds of football county football and Kurdi football is Steven Naismith is killed again for West Ham for Burnley to the arms. Get their first win four games behind a brace from off-season Lassio acquisition, Philippa Anderson, also goals from Marco and out of and cheery burly. Meanwhile, lose their third straight in those three games. They've conceded thirteen goals and not coincidentally their keepers one Joseph heart. And this was the Joe Hulme Morial Darby may rest in peace. I think it'd be pleased just four goals league to gain his rebound. Squeeze coming back day in the office for me. I feel for him. They feel for Joe hall, really and the ongoing. Ralph wig, amazing, Joe Hart. There's going on before I somebody make it stop. It's just a four from the pinnacle plummet while it can happen to all of us this day. We have. We have Matt Lucas the actor came into the room and he dropped some life wisdom on. I think about it all the time. He said remember, you me everyone twice in life. Once when you're on the way up once when you're on the way down treat them accordingly times think about to keep go. Okay, Raj Newcastle. One what Ford nil the first one of the season on Tyneside, a sixty fifth minute header from Spanish substitute for as the difference in this one Newcastle. Move clear of the drop zone limited commercial place during the soccer. I don't know why just about just go excited at Newcastle. United won the came fine defensive display against wasteful what for backer back. All hail Rebenito's. Don't you love him? And know money's better going into your fridge taken out your weekend leftovers and just whipping up really tasty stir. 'cause that's what he does with the Andrey yet Lynn Lou main whips it up tabu, it looks like a younger slimmer more hunts. Just loving sorta forty doesn't Newcastle is he proves to the world. How crap? By losing losing losing losing. And then he appears like a genius when he has that same bunch of losers wind politics optics. How does field one full of military's joined the tune registering their first win of the season. But don't get carried away thinking that surely scored an own-goal by Timothy cements divided two sides above which the guillotine remains perilously poised. Can we happen for terriers fans two hundred and five days they've waited to see her this field goal. And even though it was an own-goal. This game was an eyesore and darkness for Fulham. This is the worst joke ever made on this podcast. I think chronic bed wetting of Kent Moore clean sheets that certainly boughten five worse. Yes. Bottom five Cardiff nil. Lester one just seven days after a helicopter crash that killed club chairman fish? I see what unapproachable less travelled to Cardiff and sore off the Bluebirds behind a fifty fifth minute Tamari grey gull some incredibly emotionally scenes before during and after this one. Say every football fan had occurred. I was cheering hunt for less on this day as own thing. That players were portrayed agreed before of the jury in this game, which which plays the mandate to play to honor the deceased casper Schmeichal talked about how we shaking during the warm up. See then sobbed through the minute's silence before. And this was amazing journey interview growing the post-match where the players have to speak to domestic media foreign me, they have to go through the growing he handled the interviews of dignity in new -bility footballers normally whatever the question whether I wanted to feel like to school that go to win game. They normally just default medically to the cliche. They always a major. I can't describe the feeling con describe the fears happy for the team from a so they always say I can't describe the feeling Schmeichal post much to his attornal credit tried to dig the an articulate patiently real feelings as a human, and it was amazing to witness a reminder football as human beings and how much talk together not fill. Don't you think they've entirely grief? And loss. You really see the true character of people? Organizations. Definitely more. We seem less than well. Number one. I think we've seen the team that really valued at a city in a group of fans community that revalued their owner an owner who who did a lot for that community. And they love him. It was a tragic end to his life. And I think that contributes to this, and it was sudden contributes to which makes everybody think about filling. Ambulances, which is essentially says when you hear an ambulance. Everyone says oh that's terrible for the person in it. But really they're thinking of their own death, which is not a bad thing to think about you imparting to think about what you can do in your own life. How you can make meaning make joy main memories. Say less showed in new -bility? Great collective strength. I think the collective strength fueled him in good times the dream title. And also in this terrible time they went to Thailand right after the game to visit their former chairman body in Buddist temple in Bangkok. It's an amazing collective morning. It's his own remarkable power. Do believe they're going to hit the players hard. And they're prepared for this later in the season. I wish him all strength. All courage, employable listeners.

LADS#152 - Liverpool/Spurs Comeback Baby feat. Logan Smith

"Ooh. No. No. Thing vase. All right. Welcome into latte podcast today is may tenth twenty nineteen. Happy Friday everybody we have a special nest on the show today. We have Logan the creator of our discourse cattle massive Liverpool fan and Dow's IRS so Logan do little introduction. Tell the people. Yes. So I'm not a scouts. I'd ever have been to England. So I just a big fan of Liverpool. But yeah, I started the discord is been I don't know it started at the beginning of the actual season. So it's been like eight months now. And yeah, there's a bunch of people in it. It's really fun. Come talk to to talk about whatever don't get a those is salt, your be mean, we all have pretty friendly conversations. But in pretty good chat. So I think the discord link is somewhere on on Twitter Facebook. But if I measure you just ask and Kevin will Lincoln to via. I'm ready to talk about the greatest game that has ever been played in Champions League history. Exactly. We're going to get right into that. But yeah, the discord channel if you ever want to join a come hang out like thirty plus people now, which is really cool. We just talk about beer soccer over of so Logan. Thank you so much for creating NASA Logan from. Man. A no no don't don't the yard in the back. So let's get right into it. You're Liverpool fan this champions. I just wanna stay has been the most insane. I think we say this every year, but I feel like this year, especially with the Tottenham of four three crazy game. You had the which I will correct now it was event this coming back and let it go Madrid. Aer you go you got your time. Thank you. Yes. We just recently had the Liverpool comeback against Barcelona. We had the Tottenham. I x. Unreal. Mantis United PS G. Lest we forget. So I gotta start off with this. As a Liverpool fan. How today feel that comeback against Barcelona because I will say in the first leg liberal, even though Liverpool lost three. No you guys played exceptionally. Well, there was a three nil loss where I was like this doesn't make sense it that was it was just miss chances. So give me your breakdown of this two leg affair. Yeah. Le-? Well, it should have been to nobody messy messy things just activated guilt and decided to score one of the best free-kicks I've ever seen. So that didn't help us being down three nil. Whenever message does shit like that. But yeah, we we played pretty good against Barcelona. But obviously not gonna they're better at home. But on the way leg we were just better every single way bar. I don't know what it was. They just didn't look up to it. And we just we just performed better. It took a brace from when now dome in Riga to do it when we have. Saleh within have for me. No. I don't think he played either. So we were missing two of our three frontliners, but went out and scored brazen Rigas quarter brace and the psych that's all you gotta do to become like club legends. So they can go literally anywhere in Liverpool for the rest of their lives and just get free drinks. But all you want. Honestly, like that's all I want like if someone said like, okay, did you win like this Champions League or something like that? I just wanna goal in a semi final. Like could. I have a career of ten years or score like a championship winning goal. Champions League winning goal as of one hundred percent. And it doesn't matter who you play for those fans. Will remember you forever, at least until at least for that generation. They're gonna remember you, and they're gonna love you. But that's rent Arnold free. Kick to regain shows just how smart of player he is twenty years old. He's twenty years old as crazy. He's already becoming one of the best right backs in the world. I very very proud, very happy. And yeah, it's funny because in the NBA if I could make reference LeBron. Isn't in the punishment for fifteen years and these NBA playoffs have been some of the best of all time Real Madrid knocked out very early. And so now, it's like, well, of course, we all knew they probably we're gonna make you the file anyway, but the Real Madrid ounces is over and shines light to how many other great teams are in Europe. They can contend for this title. I mean, no one expected. I XE Spurs to be the semi-final about. But what happened, and they were it was on such great ways that they got their eye being surprised team of the tournament. And that four three into you Lou to its version city was unbelievable. Eighty add to the United against PSE. That was great. We all became United fence and night because we all collectively just don't would you would you fuck that was awesome. I I don't I like I said last I'm I don't necessarily hate United for them. But I don't like I hate PC, and I like to see them loose, and they got should be them by Phil Jones, and then boys, and it was great. So the Champions League this year has been it's the best. I've ever seen is been so much fun to watch. No going now, I was just going. I was just going to finish that up and say, it's it's been very entertaining in the finals going to be a goal fest say the least I'm so excited but going back to your point. I think this Champions League has been even more memorable because you had teams like I actually with the budget one tenth of man city or a PS. Jeez. And you also had Tottenham move had no transferred this this year. And have barely had any transfers the past two years. Two teams who are Bill on chemistry coaching in the will to win. You know, it was all about like who wants it more. Yeah. That's what I loved. You had. I XE going against you know, you Ventas, which is Renou dough and all these like expensive unbelievable players in the Italian, you know, juggernauts, and then you had Tottenham going up against man city, which on paper, they're fairly close by definitely give man city of bigger edge. But who have spent way more shows that it gives me hope as a soccer fan that like, okay? Like that. Even you don't have to spend a ridiculous amount to be good. And I think Pocchettino has shown that end the whole. I XE quad has shown that as well. And I think that's so important. I think Liverpool who has spend a good amount but hasn't done like crazy spending. Would argue you got Mosa law for steel, I think vertically for that. Even vigil is seventy five and now you look at it. And he's like he's like two hundred player now more than doubled. His what he would go right now Alison Trent or Alexander Roberson who's playing in the Roberston Robbo who's playing in the year. Yeah. Use lane in the championship last year of beano. Who hasn't exactly looked like the monitor that we seem? But now he's really coming into form. And I think for beano who standing in front of that back four worked his tail off in the far Celona. He was absolutely phenomenal phenomenal. He's he's amazing. There was some argument on the disco channel by his stats and people coming down on them. But if you looked at him in the second leg, he was doing things I like kinda Luca Madras. I'm not saying they're close. I'm just saying that on a stat she seen you like worked his asshole. So, but yeah, any any other thoughts on the Liverpool? I mean, it's unbelievable in the scenes. I mean, who this is one of the greatest like I was just you know, I was just people were giving me shit. I was like, oh where does this rank and UCLA comebacks and liberal fans like two thousand five better. Like, I know I know two thousand five Milan was better. But I gotta say this has to be in like top. Five definitely top ten right? Like best is it's up. There's not like six Barscelona against PSE. It's not like, yeah. Like the Liverpool or like United against fire nothing in ninety nine. But it's up. There is you can make an argument that it's one of the best ones is evidence. Best comeback this year of anywhere. That'd be going back to your point with Spurs. I x two as shows how well the seams youth programs are and how well they can really identified talent from young age guy has the vet has the best use youth system. Probably in the world next Barscelona, and it really shows that a lot of those guys like young delays. Those guys were just just homegrown amazing players and ton of to being able to. Ball on a budget in a way and get players that are really Lucas Mora for thirty mil I think about Leo's a still from PS G and son has been great. I don't you know, what the hell they paid for Sunday when they got him. But it probably wasn't lot. Cain. Barely anything alley. Nothing. I mean that team has been as shown the pod is the world's best manager. He can it doesn't matter that he hasn't won anything. He has no fee has no damn money. It's hard to win anything. We don't have any money, but he could still win something with no money, which is defective. He even got to the Champions League. In the first place is is amazing in the champion. You can't say that you you have an easy run. It's impossible. And he means city he beat I actually incredible. So I think just for this further proves that the whole he doesn't have any trophies argument is kinda not valid when it comes to Paci. No it is. I is for most majors, but not much to you know, I think using what he has around him, especially because Tottenham is just hit with the injury bug. So hard is pretty incredible to see what he has done with the town around him shout out to unite Emory, the arsenal manager for selling Lucas Mora to shout out on Twitter to what. Him. If only if only we, you know, hindsight's twenty twenty but yeah. One more thing I just have to give that trick play by Trent Alexander. Unbelievable. Just like just quick thinking. That's crazy. Especially for veteran team like Barcelona who has all these players who've been in these situations like to like unbelievable. And I think it was a tweet by cesspool breath, as you know, the, oh, gee snake of arsenal that he said like no this is just like it wasn't like a trick. It was just amazing. Just like great like the weirdness. Yeah. Is actually really a great one time finished by was when on them, right? I was sorry. Sorry. I just like flabbergasted, I just love. I just love your clocks quote afterwards, which Steve sell Kurt. And Steve Kerr actually quoted him today saying the fucking giants. You know? He's just fine me. I don't care like this is the like the fact that you're going to back to back Champions League finals in that the fact that arsenal of fans like myself have been you know, we've been low key Hayden because you guys of because of success. Of your club Baccino now either one of them is going to walk away with a Champions League. That's amazing. So I will be rooting for you in the final. I'm just saying. Thanks. You're welcome. You're very welcome. But yeah, let's move on to Tottenham game. Which at first I got called on the internet because I posted that picture on Instagram and Facebook of delight saying look at this kid nineteen years old champing his team scoring against you know, you Ventas and Spurs champion seem to Champions League final. Then turns out Tottenham has unbelievable comeback and Lucas Moore has a hat trick. Unreal. Scenes, whatever I'll take the L. I will take it. It's fine. I'm not, you know, I'm not going to beat myself up too hard about that. But can you believe that you have Monday, you have the not bring old wounds? You have the Vinson company screamer. And then Tuesday, you have the Liverpool comeback and then Spurs you have the comeback on Wednesday. Like Jesus Christ. Like, I can't even like, I my blood pressure's too high. I can't even handle this at all. Yeah. Yeah. Lesser days for for football has been incredible. Especially if you're neutral just being able to see what sport has to offer that companies screamer, by the way on believable. I've never seen a Senate bike score a goal that in my life. That was that was incredible. But yeah, it's especially this Champions League to you can't really count any team out as how with how walking how weird it's been with. How many comebacks and how many surprises ulcer have been so. Yeah, you kinda you kinda got lost in the sauce there. The Lucas Moore's showing that front line. First Burs is one of the best in the world whenever the fully healthy, son. Cain mora? That's that's a deadly front three. And I think they'll all be playing in the final. So even though are defense is great. I see it hard for us to not keep them from scoring at least one goal like keeping clean sheeting Zafran three fully healthy special alley by them is going to be tough. So neck. Game's going to be incredible. I is going to be amazing. Yeah. I was going to say I think there's a question from the discord. But I'm gonna preview it now. We'll go over it again. But do you think you should play Cain in this final? Just because he hasn't been in the starting lineup. Do you think you'll be ready for this? I I have no clue I'm not a doctor, but that's side. Logan. I wasn't asking you. Confirmed it okay. Wanted information. I don't have d- just as anybody wondering. But and yeah, okay. So I'm cleared up. But I don't know. I mean, he's I mean, they have his rushing him back. So I wouldn't be surprised if they did. But I mean at the end of the day if he wants to play I mean shit let him because he's he's their best player. And if your best wants to play, regardless of what the doctor say, I'm LS unless he can't walk. I mean shit you kinda have to let him especially your something that big and that important for Tottenham specially with them financing that whole Saint stadium. They definitely need the money for winning two Champions League. So I think they will buy I don't know if they should or not. But they probably will. And yeah, I just gotta say like the heartbreak to the ax players and the fans like, that's that's that's that's an horrible. Heartbreak. You know what I mean? I can't even imagine how those players mostly feeling because it's been nothing, but a dream run for them to end such heartbreak and such late fashion. When was the last goal scored in the ninety six ninety six min. I think all I don't think they're going to get paid into summer that whole teams like probably at least have you know, it's going to happen is going to be the same repeat of Monica whenever they one of the princely couple years ago. Like half of the starting eleven is going to be gone. Probably we already know that young Scott to leaks probably gone. Somebody could probably get touted get him for some good money goalkeepers rumor to be leaving to Barcelona like that's just going to get ransack. But it's I x and they have agrees as and so they're just gonna plug people from the system bay, and I ask themselves or like, you know, we're gonna get a lot of money from these players. So it's it sucks right now. But in the longer, I think they'll be pretty pretty proud of of the of what people -ccomplish. Yeah. I honestly like I also heard from all the money they will be receiving from transferred. They're going to distribute it through the league, which is really cool for them general yet because I like, you don't really see that all like, you know, when. Monica when Monaco got all that money. I doubt that the league got all this money transferred to you know, like. Like, and like, Leo and doubt, they saw that money. So that's really cool. I really really appreciate that. What do you think delight goes elites? I don't know. He might fall diong Barscelona 'cause TD's been really hurt, and they kinda PK's she's going to be aging out, more and more and more. So probably there. I don't know. I mean ak- come play with his with his nations captain Liverpool. You do that in mind him doing that? But I I think we should spend the money somewhere else. But that's that's a topic for a different podcast, but I probably to probably to Barcelona to cut you off. But I think he will fall diong because that would just work for Barscelona. They just I mean, they've already bought delong, and I don't think delete to be too much more. But they're I mean, he's going to be a lot. So you got a high teams have to pay for a team that can afford them, so arsenal definitely need them. There's no gonna four. Him. So maybe like you've vintage because there's interaction aren't h out a little bit. Maybe maybe maybe Biron 'cause they're centreback started little bit PSE always in the cards. They have way too much money. So I it's gonna be a big move wherever he's going is going to be big. Yeah. I think this summer transfer windows can be very interesting because there's also rumors of the Barcelona exodus. I mean, obviously Valle Verde is definitely on the hot see. He's definitely gone. And also now the rumor is Cotino. So it's going to be very interesting where he'd lands as well. He's kind of fallen into the HAMAs Rodriguez category. Where he's kind of like, you know, what's the word? I'm looking for kind of like, not escape go of just kind of like, I can't think of the word a missing link looking for, you know, where he's just like, you know, just aimlessly popping the team the team never really getting neck Laurie. But there he's Asia's a player that goes. From place to place where we could buy has got like HAMAs Rodriguez as well. It's gets to play very similarly physician. Skillset wise. They do they both shoot really far away all that stuff. So I yeah. As pretty ironic that you brought that anything about that. But yeah, I think he's going to go. I think the managers gone, and I think they're going to do a big realized it's started with Dion recalling for both skits cause sedation out so yeah. Yeah. And then what they do with dim belly. Malcolm. Are they gonna keep both of them? Get someone the other. It's gonna really play out very interesting summer for Barcelona. Yeah. I think that also the over reliance on messy is deputy coming to a head. And I think you've seen Argentina. And I think you definitely saw on the second leg of the Champions League where they're just like on like messy. It's all on messy. And it's like, dude, I understand he's considered the greatest player of the if this generation X to Rinaldo, I think he's my favorite player of all time. Not maybe not favorite. I mean teary on res my favorite player. But I think in terms of talent wise, I would say messy favorite to watch on on a game to game basis because of what he can do that out agree. Yep. So it's going to be very interesting. How they like kinda you know, Barcelona is in win. Now, you know. So it's going to be always, it's alone. If you're not if you're not winning championships leagues. They don't give a shit like you you you could win the the the the league there. I can think of the league name. But the league they're all you want. They don't give Dale you've the racist. Dredge if you're not gonna champions leaks your. You're you're saying there's not gonna not gonna be very long. They have wants twenty fifteen was the last one. So it's it's been about four or five years now. So that's that's longer parcel of standards. They want they want to win now. Yeah. I mean, like when you have the talent of Messi who the president just quote it. We're gonna make ten statues of I think they won at least one more before he's gone. So I think it's very interesting me messy so as other like three or four years of his prime. I think before he starts slowing down. I mean, he's only what thirty something like that. So before you hit set like thirty five, you know, where you start seeing the decline and like I mean side like Renaldo who's just still just unstoppable as he ages. He just keeps getting like better seems like, yeah, it's it's very it's very interesting. But I question for you, Logan. I'm looking at Pocchettino what he did. With his squad is the pleaded squad in his making a change like five. Final. Do you think man? United made the wrong choice without with not pursuing him harder. He we. How course yeah. If anything that needs should be pursuing Paci knows hard as possibly can. I mean time will tell because Ozzy United squads just not fit really for most managers except for Paci. No. But it's hard to compare managers to punch in my opinion. I think he's the best manager of the world. I think what he can do with no talent. No other major in the world can do. I think it's it's not fair to to all you're really any of the major try to compare them to to potch. But yeah, I mean shit. It's it doesn't look that. Great right now at probably won't be nature for United as well. As ages go spend, a heavy in the summer still. Yeah. I think they probably didn't make a mistake because if you can get say rumor to chino for ever feels like for like a good couple years, and they didn't. So only time will tell but I think time will tell that will be a terrible decision for them. Yeah. I don't know. I feel like I've told Martin on the pod that the definitely gotta give all the ah transfer window and see what he can do. And see you bring and get rid of these. You know loose ends. So and I just saw Luke shawl when their player of the year, which is interesting because I think we saw is not underrated. But definitely gets overlooked sometimes, but it's hard for me to say like during that good str-. Edge where many United very well. I think he was one of their best players when Ali I came in. But it's just hard for me to see. I I don't know who else would you put as player of the year? I mean you could pug by guest. But I mean, he's been really inconsistence Amos Lukaku. It's that is very hard to has not been great at very they haven't had really a stand out player this year who's been great for them. So I don't really know. It's hard you think about it. Shop might not. But it's a pretty good shout. Honestly when it comes to the full season because he's I mean, he's been he's had his inconsistencies, but he's not been asking system as Lukaku Pago has been and he's played in existed. So you can't really give that to Alexis Sanchez because he is I honestly periodically forget that he plays football. 'cause you just don't really see him do anything ever. That's like the biggest bust of all time. Alexa, Sanchez out there. Right. Definitely the last decade in the pram like that is who fell. Big. I mean that was a big swing? I mean, they only talk. Hoops biglou guitar, and I think a little bit of money like thirty Miller something like that. I don't remember what it was. But they didn't give a whole logs big Atari been. Okay. But in terms of what they got back. The Dow was awful for them. They need to get him in his salary out of here as soon as possible. I guess maybe rash rushers been really good this year. I've probably give it a restaurant, honestly. Because of what he needs to the club to going forward. You wanna keep him as happy as possible casinos that cups future. Yeah. He's too in tech. So yeah, I probably to rest richest. So you don't just say don't piss them off. Honestly, that's. Definitely want to hold onto him, especially I was thinking too when we were talking Barcelona they're looking to replace their striker. And I was thinking, you know, I don't think rash. Root is far Celona quality yet. But I think in a couple of years. Maybe I don't know. I think yeah. I think they're definitely looking for a striker replacement. So that'll be that'll be very interesting to see who will take up the new number nine at Barcelona. Yeah. We have a question for that. I think from the discord for garf-, so we can we can lose that later. But I have a few people in my that. I think Barcelona could they whoever they want right? So this with their name alone. Yeah. Yeah. As just how much money they have they could just by whoever they want. So. Yeah. Which is here here goes fifty mil. Yeah. I'll take out taking place you. All right. So before we move into some Europa league, which I know everyone's dying to hear about exciting civil shining tournament in the world, also ran by the Premier Li do you have any? Other last thoughts about the Liverpool victory or the Tottenham victory. The big comeback any lies. It was the greatest game. I firstly scene is good for me because as a sports fan since I've been a heavy sports fan since I was like in my early teenage years, I have seen a single trophy or anything, you know. I'm Celtics fan. I Celtic fan after they won't the championship of university of Florida fan fan after they wanna championships Tampa Bay Buccaneers fan York's. So I've seen eighty championships in my life. So to see a Champions League final would be awesome. But if I was to lose to team if I pick a team to lose suit, it might be Spurs. Honestly, I like they play football is really entertaining. I'm a big fan of Tino. It's I have gotten a lot of shit a lot just like we have for the pram. They get a shift or bottling game. So I would if our narrative clubs narrative of of not being a winner can't end. I would like Paci tina's to end possible. But I've still going to be rooting really hard again. I'm still gonna be Cussing chino out on against my TV's. Whatever the games on. So. Yeah, I'm just really excited for that. The only shitty part is it's in like a month, right or something. Crazy. They made the final so far after the semi-final which six the best games in the semi-finals. So you're so you're just want mortgage. You're feeding for more games. And it's like, well gotta wait till I July or something stupid. Yeah. Exactly. I think it's early June. And you're like, wait what you just totally forget about it for a second. Then you're like, oh, it's here like holy shit. And you just get like super hype. I I'm like this is like the anti lads Champions League final you have had them and. Either way one of the host of lab is going to be really really sad. But at least it, but at least a printer leaks back on top as as all teams are read in the world, the frame release be win the champions again at least. At least at least that's got us going. As an elective and as a good transition and the prince going to be winning negro league. Look at the hell yet do there. Does the to the to Europe league merchants Chelsea and arsenal? Go in going toe to toe the arsenal put up a clinic against Valencia over two legs. What seven goals, I think you guys scored eleven seven to three in a bomb yank just putting up a clinic against them. So I just want just want to say this is the hot take arsenal is good. I say, we're we're good. You're good football too. Great. We're not great. Yeah. You're not tremble winning or anything like that. But you're good football team. When either your over league is is is as long as you win. The euro believe this all the matters. Like, you're not gonna bring up your trophies argument or anything. But hey, if you in the open finishing the Champions League next year. So that's the most important thing for you guys. Because Chelsea they secured fourth place, or is is to lose it by three points or something like that. So they would have to. I I don't think they can lose their head on goal difference. Somehow. Really cable, so Chelsea is seventy one. So they've security Lisa force place. I believe because of Tottenham wins. They'll go up to seventy three in Arsenal's currently sitting sixty seven. So the only way there's. The only way are some gets in Tottenham blues by four goals in arsenal. Scores like five like ridiculous is a yes, there is a way if if somehow you guys win and Tottenham lose, and they go even you guys beat your next opponent by nine goals. There is that you're saying there's a chance there's a chance. Will it probably not not say never as as Champions League has taught us devastate never Europe beleaguer bust for arsenal in the Champions League. So yes, so arsenal beats Napoli beats Valencia Chelsea go in under penalties. Thanks to eat in hazard. I mean, he didn't hazard we discuss this in the discord channel. But even has are not making the team of the year. Many would call a crime. I mean, he's responsible for over. I think now over fifty percent of Chelsea's goals. I'm going to be really sad when he leaves. I know he's going. Everyone's like, oh, maybe maybe not. I think it's ninety percent. Sure. He's the Premier League which is going to suck. Because that's the league. I love league you love, and it's going to be hard for me to watch him. And I don't really watch that much Lolita or I don't know. I think gives the number one spot I think Real Madrid. I don't know if you would go to a buyer Munich, I know frankly breeze leaving, but they have some nice players there. But it's going to be sad when he leaves I'm eating what are your thoughts and eating has. He's just been such a joy to watch these past like six or so years. Yeah, is is been it's been a jam honestly. And he's one he's one of the primarily once or twice again. Remember, it's one twice of the European success that he wanted, but I'll come to an end he's been there since twenty fourteen twenty thirteen hundred like that. So a good good while he's gonna get tenure. He's brought Chelsea a lot that they didn't have without him. So, but I think it's for him to move on. And I think that you know, it's just because contracts of din the season right lane. 'cause he's going on a Freeman we should sold him at the beginning of this year round matured hunt Chelsea fans, but it's always twenty twenty. Yikes. He is. But a yet gives carrying that team because I was talking about this the discord earlier Dzhergenia is shit. He's a terrible player. He may have been one of the worst. He's actually we're talking about the first Sanchez Jorgihno has been not good. He's been bad. And he was I think seventy mil or something like that like a lot of money, and he has school. He has scored two goals has zero assists. Phil Jones and Edison have more assistant at mid to put this into perspective. Liverpool's fullbacks have combined twenty to assist in the primarily. Well, that's just ridiculous. I just wanna say, that's absolutely, sir. Yeah. Well, that's to be fair. That is where most of our attack comes from is from out wide. But yeah, he has none. He's only two goals this year, and he looked at the beginning of the year. But after people figure it out that you've just got sick on him. And you can't really pass it around. But the back of time that he's not been good. But somehow, someway, it didn't hazard and Ruben Loftus shake who's been great have willed them to Arab League finally arsenal. But I think as prediction Arsenal I think will win because I just think arsenal Ari better team. And I think they're I think they're better managed as well. I don't I think that MB is is it will be a better manager in that game. I think he's a better big a miniature. I mean, he's the European champion. I mean, you saw Zia. I mean, he's he's he's been there before you always really good at. Joystick the coach he's been there before. So let's do predictions. All right. Let's we're here. Logan, the suit champions. I what is your prediction for the Champions League final which is in three weeks or so Liverpool Tottenham in Madrid? What's it going to be final score? To one Liverpool. Liverpool school scores. We do what we've been doing all season is probably will be one one after like thirty minutes in in the first half. And then we'll probably score a goal within the last five minutes of the game. We doing all season and still in probably some like, that's what I see happening. I don't see keeping a clean sheet against our against on of this is again, my prediction is also the hurricanes gonna play if he doesn't play. I think it's probably the two nil route because I think he does so much for that team. So important for that team. And this is my prediction with him play. So I think that it's gonna be two one something like that. Yeah. I think it's gonna be a great game as not gonna be a probably gonna be like a bar like a yard. Burner some barn burner that saying is? But it's going to be a great game is going to be a classic great game. And there's no there's there's nobody in goal for us now to fuck it up and concede a goal through his legs Allison his way better than that. And that won't happen again. And hopefully solid would be playing this one for the for the full time because there's Sergio Rambo's to break legs. But I'm a hold of that Sergio that's joke. But yeah, I think it's going to be a great game. What about you? I agree that it will be Liverpool. I'm saying three one Liverpool. I'm an it's my. This team that I do. No. I'm just saying I have if you have Salah, I think they're like, you know, we're back. I feel pool. Klopp is a great manager of players. He knows how to hype his team up. He's gonna be like guys were here. Again. Let's fucking go come on. Now. Like, we don't wanna go through all the fucking hardship. We have one game. Let's when it we've been doing all year. We've been so consistent. I think it'll be cl-. I say three one, but it's going to be like the Barcelona three. No, first leg, I think it's going to be both teams are playing out of their Gord. But at the end of the day, I think Liverpool are going to have the edge, and they're going to want that revenge. So I think for for not revenge against Tottenham but revenge for last year when Salah went down when it could have been a better game. You know? So I think it's going to be a three one of fair, I think Cain scores. And I think Salah Monday in a sneaky, maybe like Jordan Henderson, which I didn't mention in the Secondly, Jordan Henderson played like Liverpool. Capt? Jordan Henderson ESI. Was you know, I'm always like in an out on Jordan Henderson, m hot and cold with him. If you can really lead this team as a captain of Liverpool. He was phenomenal. And the second legs. I wanna give I do wanna give him credit where credit is due. Yeah. I wanna there's no one more hunt called join hundreds into the I hated him in the military, but he's definitely turned it around. 'cause I was unless pockets telling everybody shitty was and immediately proved me wrong, by playing way better and make me like an idiot. But hey, I'll take it. Whatever. That's what it takes to get him to play like a captain outsold writers face. I don't care prolong. Yeah. Food be raw he but he was amazing for us played through injuries. He doesn't care. He wants his Champions League for this team. He is he's he's an amazing player for us for for and also to help our all our young players and all the players this year the week at that were new Alison of Van Dyke last winter, but he is still kind of adjusting to the team as well. Yeah. Everybody Sala whenever he was brought in. To help get people to play together through his energy and through his will play. Sometimes what he does playing on the pitch is great. But at least he's trying he's giving it as as all one hundred percent of the time. And that's all you can really ask for especially from your captain. If he's going to be the captain, you expect that from him. He always delivers on that front. Which is why I always love the player. I don't want to ever believe livable. I've never said that. I would just like it. Maybe if he didn't start every game. But he's playing great for us. Oh, hey, if he's on great form start him, go. Yeah. I think he's going to be one of the best league finals in quite some time. So even though it says three one I still think it's gonna be very competitive. Okay. Let's move on to the rewrote the league final super diction. I'll give time I'm going to say arsenal to one you can have some Eden hazard magic for at least one goal by a bomb and Laka that front to are on fire right now. I think arsenal wins and gets your paean glory for the first time. Yeah. I'm a I'm going to see your two one double that. I think he's gonna be four to I I have very little faith and Chelsea defense. I'm not a big fan of them. Capita has been good this year. But Chelsea's offense is not that good. A like you said abiding logs that have been cooking. Share dad duo is great and arsenal. Courts are scored seven against Linda. This is me kinda getting conned the moment here predicting four, but I think they their offense catches just exploded any given point at Chelsea defense with David Louise, and those guys can be a little spotty for time to time. So, but I also think that ourselves offense is not good either. Arguably worse yet, tell me about Chelsea has a much worse attacks thing, we'd probably Chelsea they don't actually have striker. They just have hazard any can only do so much whenever you have hit Wayne shooting at you. You're probably not gonna score a lot of goals, and I say it, and I hate to RPG on Chelsea because our good friend, Brian the discord he's he's a big Chelsea fan. But. Just when you don't have a striker, and you have some fat guys fed Italian playing strike or fat Argentina do playing striker. It's just can't score a lot of goals. And even though ourselves offenses in that good. The lack of strikers definitely gonna hurt. Chelsea I think so for three or four to five prediction wouldn't be surprised if he has only scored three, but I don't see Chelsea keeping bugai's turn in terms of goalscoring ability. Yeah. I just you know, just paint me the most of Tottenham wins the Champions League, which would be my worst case scenario, and then Chelsea beats neuropathy. It's over you. Don't log onto the lads Twitter account. No obvious soggy sorrows for sure I'm going to it's going to be. I'm gonna be on some serious watch. All right. Let's do suicidal. Yeah. You gotta watch out for me. Let's see some questions. Are you ready? I am. Yeah. Definitely. Okay. First question from our discord channel comes from your boy garp, he says should there be a mass exodus in Barka if so which ones should go coach included so Logan. Gophers coach definitely gone. I think somebody they could bring in for coach. Why can I think of his name head? Yeah. I think he's got I think they should bring into events as manager whose name I can't think of right now. But he's my really good for them. They just. Yeah. Yeah. I think are the Lakers manager. I think is his his results of the Champions League. Don't really say that. But I think he's a really good manager the way he's able to change his styles and play I mean events is have one I think what seven or eight straight titles Syria out, which I mean serious becoming farmers league. Now, low key, but AC still really good manager. And I think he'll be better than Valverde, and you can't really get much better than him right now in the in the in the market because I think event is are also probably looking to separate from him. We know Conti right now is being linked to enter. But if he does go to enter there's a high chance that you could go to events and replace again and replace a likely, so I think that something that could happen. I think they need to get rid of Suarez probably because he's aging out. I'm a big fan of selling players before they age out. So you can make money off them while you can't. And I think they should bring in. Instead of him is a guy who almost beat Chelsea a guy by the name of Luca Yovich. He is distracted for Frankfurt. He is. I think Serbian, hey Servian. He was actually younger than I am. He's born in ninety seven. So he's twenty Christ twenty one years old, and he has lit the fucking Bundesliga up this year. He is a phenomenal phenomenal player. He's already putting up to goal numbers. His ex g especially which is kind of like it's a stat. People used to determine how many goals you're expected to score a game based on the chances. You get in how good those chances are as expected to score our goal every other game for a twenty one year old stronger. That's phenomenal. Especially in the Bundesliga, which is a pretty defensive heavy league and playing for Frankfurt, which isn't a very very creative team him for Barcelona. He would explode. He is a phenomenal player. I and I didn't think the aching get them for probably not a lot fifty sixty mill. Something like that. Which of course is a lot. But for just Mark caliber his caliber in his age would be would be just amazing for them going forward or or you keep Suarez sell next year in have him learn underscores, I think would probably be better. Now, I think about it. I think they I think that you're at a casino 'cause I still you can make a good bit of money back on. You're not gonna make your money back. The next year. He wants to buy deliverable fuck that we use that money that we got rid of him. Very, well, we don't really wanna back 'cause he's probably gonna so cost seventy seventy five mil. So they Iran a ham. And I think they gotta they gotta buy some center bags and probably get rid of Malcolm. 'cause I don't think he's really working for them. Dim bellies really proven the last night the last half the season that he is just better age younger. So I think they're going to keep him going forward. And yeah, they just need some health some help when messy because has been carrying the team for way too long. They I think he's scored fifty goals again this season. Like he can't keep doing that forever. You know, Raga tissues getting older, they need some better creative midfielders that team just needs a lot of work. But when every pocketbook as deep as Barcelona that can that can go pretty well. Because I think they're only touchable is actually funny to our Bessie probably. Belly? And again, I think that's it. I think everybody else they could release replace herself. I really do because they've just not been up to par or they're just declining age. Yeah. I think Katina was kind of like Paul Bo where they're kind of luxury players give you have them. They're nice, but they're not going to lead a team. So that's just that's, you know, nothing against Paul work. Absolutely. Like top twenty top twenty players phenomenal. In terms of where the are by think, they're not going to be like the leaders you need in order to, you know, get to the final leg win that championship. And I'm not trying to be a hater. That's just my personal opinion as a hater. So I. I'm not a hater. But I'm currently hating, and I wanna Rubik double back on on Yovich in this year in abundance scored seventeen goals has five assists in the euro Balik. He has ten goals. So it's twenty seven goals. All competitions a twenty one year old phenomenal stats Barscelona should pick him up. I've also heard rumors of deba-, I think would be a really interesting pickup for Barscelona would be Sante. I think if they could somehow were score Sante because he's been like in a now of the man city's squad to Real Madrid to write recently Graham. I want to get him. If they can't get has. But I think would be way too expensive in because he because he's going to be a lot of money. Yeah. Playing he's gonna be expensive. His ceiling is economical. All right. Let's move on to the next question. Same by you, boy, garf- he says if Harry Kane is healthy. Should he start in the final we touched upon this a little bit? But what do you think? Yeah. Evie southie? Of course, he sees your best player you have to play your best players if they can play. If you d you gotta plan. You just have to do it. I I t's too good for that team. He's too integral attack. Yeah. I think if you have Harry hurricane, and you think he's healthy. Definitely play him. I'm sorry. I got really pissed so we're going to fast forward through this to the last question. I just came back from dollar oil stirs and happy hour, so I've been drinking like a fish Liden grandbaby. Let's go. All right last question comes from Kranj is Mick basketball. He says, what do you think the greatest robbery rivalry slash Darby? In the world is of this is easy on Vinnie. It's I think it's parcel on a Real Madrid. Madrid? That's pretty easy. It's the one that's the most historical. It means the most to both of those teams that prima soul country. Honestly like that means the most in the problem. That's what I shall know. Historically, probably Liverpool United when it comes to help. When it comes to like how far back the Mavericks spent. But I don't I don't know. That's a good question because you know, Spurs Arcelor there's like six London Darby's now. Spurs Spurs arsenals a really good one Yossi having a city in United Manchester Darby at the big one. So yeah. I mean, you had the north London Dr Tottenham arsenal go way back. And I think it's very interesting. I think Barcelona Real Madrid for me though, because you had to the best players going head to head messy and Renaldo in their prime going head to head twice a year. Yeah. Determining LA Lita on the two biggest clubs in the world. I think you can't beat that. I mean showed I'll to the classical of Byron of I was gonna say that with Dortmund. You are the Milan Darby ACN inter but in the past like five even ten years as kinda fallen off. Yeah. The only time the the the the one. The bundling was big wasn't Klopp was meant them but ever since that hasn't really been that much. I mean, I mean Byron killed in this year like five dollars that and insert a see I've been shell of what they were ten years ago. So it's not as inter- tanning, but they're still historically great Darby's, but I think the Real Madrid and Barcelona will be sorely forever. And. There probably won't ever be a time. Where both were both of those teams are like not good yards gonna have at least one or two. That are good in. It means so much in Spain for bragging rights as well. All right. Well, logan. Thank you so much for coming on the podcast. Thanks correcting, the discord channel if you wanna do a quick shout out where people can find you. And, you know, check out your stuff just go right ahead. Yeah. My Twitter is at a smitty boy as I t y the ally eight three threes. That's really all. I'm on. I'm on Twitter. Tweet a lot is kind of a tweet says I find funny, and yeah, just it'd be more important. If you hop on the discord that the discord link after this Cavill, probably tweeted out, if you wanna go to the Twitter, probably Facebook, all that stuff. Put it out there be out of that. I don't really have anything else. Same. Thanks for having me on. This is kind of fun. It was a blast last time. Plastic I love chat about the beautiful game to really whoever. So. Yeah. And I hope to see a lot of new people in the discord so download the app. It's free discourse really easy to use to a lot of people. It's really synonymous with PC people.

Caught Offside: Champions League, Matchday 1 Recap

"Caught offside with every gumming and JJ Benny yes offside from the over West Side Etats Andrew Grumbling and J J Advani on a Champions League Wednesday. WHAT'S UP RATHER JERSEY? I really really truly do breed the black of Iceland. My girlfriend's mother was over there visiting and she came back with this she visited the whole complex. Flex saw the whole sporting club for those that don't know that is the club that reached out to us to say that well supporters of the club who we'll go to away games listen to us on the away right away to away games which is and if you're supporter of Brita Blake you play for Brita Blick as well because we've so we've it kind of adopted them and Busselton city I believe in Australia. We're going to get a Busselton Jersey as well right so because we are obsessed with ourselves selves and our massive Egos and we support the teams that we know love us and that is how we choose our allegiances clearly. Yes what a show this is going to be. The Champions League has returned and a lot of interesting results along with it and we'll go through this. I guess kind of day by day right starting with Tuesday and then Wednesday follows Tuesday usually that is I'm I'm been told from Jack my three and a half year old in his days of the week song that that is in fact. It's good to confirm Sunday Monday Tuesday Wednesday there you go Thursday Friday. They Saturday all right ready champion so that's actually a football chant to yeah that's used for every it's rude one about about the referee care to indulge new you can't do it. I see all right. I'll tell you what let's like not even beat around the Bush here and let's just dive right into Napoli and Liverpool two nil the defending champs champs begin their quest for a repeat in not so impressive fashion what went wrong here and not a whole lot except except right at the end when a dubious penalty cost Liverpool the goal and then mistake a rare mistake by Virgil van Dyke cost them the second one a rare goal of Fernanda. Your honestly not so rare in this competition. No no honestly Liverpool and Napoli was bringing game. It was an excellent game. Napoli were top-class class team. the first half I will say worried me a little bit. It was sore stretched and open for both sides that it felt like the seventy fifth minute of a game game wound. Both teams really wanted to win. Now I think what's emerged out of this is a bit of panic and unnecessary craziness from Liverpool ever pull fans who are really upset over the result. Look we had a lot of Luck Gore way. Last season. Days didn't go our way and and Uruguayan club. Actually let's go come chemical straight to the European well. I actually want to stop you. It's something you just sit there about a lot of luck going your way last season first of all I would apply that more to the Champions League campaign the year before okay but in terms of last season's Champions League camp. I'm talking in General Champions League. I actually don't think you did no. That's good I would say that but not even that I would say it's even more of a reason for people not to freak out because what happened last year in the group stage Liverpool lost three times including to Red Star Bell right exactly like to freak out over losing your first game at Napoli which was always going to be the most challenging place for Liverpool to go. You couldn't have thought looking at it yeah Liverpool favored but no like sensible Liverpool fan could have looked at that and thought. There's no chance of losing this of course they're saying that it people from Sky Italia saying to your club that all the team was a right. You didn't play well. You played poorly. I actually think it was a really evenly contested game. I think Napoli shaded the second half Dots Fair Napoli winning two nil. Maybe Napoli winning scraping a one nil is more acceptable to me. I think think of draw was fair to it was one of those games it's one of those reactions and maybe we shouldn't judge things so much by social media but it's the way we connect with people these days is it was one of those games where I'm like. Have you watched football before teams can go away and lose two nil in Italy and the sky hasn't come falling in for like two. I want the arrogance. Jj of a liver of this Liverpool fan base to think that losing at Napoli in the Champion's League is so agree Gis that they now you tell if this is true or not but that they attack one of their own players to the point where Andy Robertson has to deactivate his twitter will you can't get on his twitter account. No on there was plenty of bile. You pushed his way but nevermind that Dietmar Hamann on the Champions League coverage in Europe took the opinion that maybe it was a penalty for for Callahan Against Robertson deep use. This is a guy who changed the course of a Champions League second half from Liverpool being three-nil kneel down to three three to win. I don't get it now is this. I'm re- I'm reading not reading listening to a podcast about a book that what I'm going to read about twitter and that the social media is designed to generate this kind of thing. It's not designed to generate positively. It's not designed signed. Even for argument are rational debate. Even though it might sometimes breakout it's designed specifically for the channeling of this negativity so so maybe us reading into what happened last night on Social Liverpool social media isn't right but did you now. I will say full disclosure what I'm saying about Andy Robertson deactivating baiting his twitter account. I'm only basing that off of what I've read from other people who support airports saying that that's what happened I actually have not personally seen the tweets like that are being referred to that. Were so horrible so I'll defer to you and Liverpool supporters. Maybe I'm maybe his account was deactivated for other reasons but by accounts accounts of other Liverpool supporters the active because of his own fans attacking him. I've seen reports that that's what's happened. I don't know unbeliev- I don't aw that that is actually what's happened but I saw the tweets aimed at Ronnie Whelan another commentator ex Liverpool player liberal legends on if boil if even a portion of that boyle went Andy Robertson's way he's everywhere. Is this sense of fall in line or else. There's there's also the sense of entitlement Heikal moment clot well. That's what I'm saying. When I use the word arrogance clock blasts season preached this is about the journey and people were saying well? That's kind of mitigating against the fact when the journey comes to an end didn't you enjoy the journey but partially but also it's true all those moments in a way this is is the garnish on top of the on top of the meal. This is the little bit of flavor when you lose a game like this. Go on to great things and like you pointed out. That's exactly what happened last season. May I say we played way worse. Last season. Dot Performance Against Napoli last night was epic compared to what we reproduced last season people. I just want people to just two camp down. Actually I don't want them to do anything. I just WanNa hear about them while you're gonna because that's just the way it works. We can talk about Andy Robertson and his performance now. You know he's not fully faith. He was a doubt going into the game. There's is that there's the fact that he's been brilliant since joining this club. Yes and there's also the fact that wasn't even really a penalty. I don't think it was a penalty boss. I was listening to the BBC commentators on their podcast and they did not have the slow down version in the San Paolo Stadium and Stephen Warnock. The EX Liverpool player said it looked like a penalty in real time and here's the catch with our it looked like a penalty in real time so when goals to Var vary are increasingly are not trying to step on the referees autonomy so they're looking at it slowdown but also so in real time and if they don't think it's clear and obvious that the referee has made an agreed error they are not reversing the call on the field. It's what we've been saying for weeks now. you're a thousand percent right do. I think that it was a penalty. No I really don't however I think Var. I think now like what we've learned about Var and how it's going to litigate penalty decisions is far. Is there simply as a safety net. It is not there a to reread these decisions so there's a chance that like you could look at the Var review say. I don't think it's a penalty but that's not good enough. The safety net is simply. Oh there was no contact and he dove now. We need to change the decision if there was some. There was probably some contact so it's it's close. It's it's not like the most egregious penalty decision that I've ever seen awarded and so. I think that's that's halvard is being used here. They're not refereeing subjective decisions. They're just not so you know when when when penalty decisions goats Avar I think you Kinda have to have this thought in your head that the burden of proof must be so overwhelming for them to want to change their the mind off of what they saw on the field arlo Weiss tweeted US last night. 'cause I mentioned a minute tweet. He made a good point IRA white said. I don't think that's a penalty atoll hat all boss. Here's what fire does and I mentioned that Ireland made a really good point and he replied the bar is high no yes. The bar is very high by the way I think that's good. I I kind of think that's how it should be like. Sometimes Var drives me crazy with handball decisions which we'll get to in the Chelsea Valencia match when we get to that one but like you know you slow down a handball and everything looks like a handball. They're not doing that on simple tackles in the box. It seems to me with penalty decisions but like also it went against us. This club has an long and cherished history of things going going against them and you just get up and you get on with it. I'm we come back stronger and I don't know why these moments Liverpool fans who not all Liverpool fans. I know there's a lot of sensible. The ones below the ones I see why they just don't grasp that spirit and move on. We've got Chelsea on Sunday. I really do think you guys will be fine. You like Andrew. I'm I'm telling you I've seen worse performances by the way are we vilifying Saleh and manny tonight or menial. Are we vilifying because Kuta Bali and Manolis did such a good job job stopping them doing what they what they stopping that from three doing what they do base no. We're not I mean for nearly scored on a header. Monty had a chance Eh tough-angle Silat. I mean that's great but silent and the breakaway. That should have been a goal Andrew. Yeah you know those were chances yeah. What about also the fact that we could have been an should be more kneel down from Greece mertens? Only Adrian pulled out a save for the ages that save will be there in the Pantheon that sandbelt like he hung in mid air for an hour really was your say I'm not getting there. I've got to dive and hope for the based and he's pulled it out the top corner and put it over when we talk about Great Champions League saves that one's going to be there Jersey Dudek is going to be there and Peter Schmeichel against against storm `grats. I think it was a rapid rapid Vienna another grits if doors that will be up there so you know not many had their chances here was caught by by the way on the loss to Napoli Guy from sky. Dalia asked me told me that was much better than us. I didn't see that game so I don't know take the way he wasn't GonNa game happened but now you say we were tired. Wu had to cram who was on the ground. Our liberal blue play on Napoli player sell after the two nil fresher than us after the one year they look fresh and that's that's normal you'll get a boost but there were no fresh or team on the pitch for my class no no physical problems apart from the normal physical problems in a game like this which is very intense both teams fight heart and all that stuff that was not a physical problem tonight tonight we had we have to finish the situations of you have how everybody's life you need. Positive moments can run forever. We didn't have three three D positive moments tonight and their first positive moments monopoly. They got the whole we say the second air so they could go again. That's normal but that was not the reason Lisa. Sometimes that's just how it goes. What's wrong with that? No I think that's entirely what I saw. That's the game I saw news a good game both teams played well. Sometimes you lose those games are I don't know Oh our listeners from one of our listeners from that we met at the Champions League Final Watch party so follow me on instagram grandma follow them as well and saw a picture of dream mertens and a heart so literally the only Napoli fans you remember the couple yeah I attain about was her dad in a very stereotypical italian-american scenario watching the game with a bowl of Pasta and the pasta goes flying when the first goal goes in let's way I'm wired Let's see we move on now to the game. I just mentioned moments ago. Valencia go to Stamford Bridge Defeat Chelsea one nil Chelsea got a bit of a gift late without penalty decision as like we said like when it goes too far for a regular tackling tackling the box you kind of think whatever they call that that's what it's probably GonNa wind up as when a penalty for handball goes too far my mind immediately goes to well. This is going to be given us a penalty yeah. That's that's how that's how handballs feel like. They're being litigated in these situations and that wasn't the case here. Is They do get the penalty and Ross Barkley takes it amidst would appear got to be some confusion out on the pitch and then he hit the crossbar and Chelsea GonNA lose one nil. Can we do see us. I go online here sure play Frank Lampard talking to Regimen Chaudhary postgame about the penalty controversy listen to his voice. Get back to me with your analysis. The penalty T- incidents certainly raised a few eyebrows with taking it is Eugenia your designated penalty taker and what happened in that moment tychy has been really started games so taking I missed it. What about when he comes onto the sub yeah so I took it yeah so I saw in in addition to that another I guess lamb parts press conference with the media at large talking about it and he was maybe even a little more adamant saying saying that Barkley took our penalties early in the season then why why he wasn't willing informed and Georgina to they both looked like they weren't ah necessarily clear on mine because Barclay didn't start? It wasn't something they i. I don't understand how this can continue to happen. This seems like a simple thing thing I don't know I was really poor. What is it that you're hinting at with the CSI investigation? I I'm not convinced by a you think he's making this up on the fighting yourself looked like he knows what he's doing. Ono Nas not fair me and franker close dare you for what are you. What I'm suggesting is it was expected that one of the senior pros would take that penalty even though Bax just that he's come into the game that the penalty take there was a designated penalty taker at the start of the game andrew and that rem and that would have remained even if back comes in that's my feeling on about with certain Williams feeling that was certainly Georgios failing and that Lampert Kinda took a step back and let them litigated themselves figure it out themselves and what's happened is there's a missed is penalty? It should have been the one of the guys that was already on the field well but that's not that's not their policy. Barkley is the guy if he's on the field regardless of when he comes on the field he's taking the penalty. I'm not convinced so I just I just felt you're not convinced I can't tell what it is. You're not convinced by land parts decision to have that be the way that it is or that Atlanta's just covering his tracks now and not wanting to throw anyone under the didn't WanNa put back under the boss is what I'm saying by Andrew. Why is that why was there a debate on the field if the players are in full knowledge of this policy? Why was there that debate now also it shouldn't be such a big deal back? He should nail the penalty. That's the other side yeah and also we should mention Chelsea. How's he played quite well in that game and as Lampert went on to say in this in in that interview that just from basically WanNa came down to you fine margins at the highest level? You've got to take your chances yeah. The final third was an issue for Chelsea and I think they haven't even bigger issue that comes out of this. That's going to hurt them not just just in the Champions League but the Premier League as well so far this portion of the season you know we focus so much on Christian Pulisic but really the story for them has been Tammy Abraham and Mason and Mount Mount left this game early with an injury. We don't yet know we think it's okay. It's not ligament damage. They said it's that's very yeah today. They there was some. I'm kind of press. Release suggesting it's not there's no tears or anything of that nature. You know you you watch Chelsea so far this year and I was reading some stuff about Mason Mount in the wake of that happening happening and what he's meant to them so far this season for a player at such a young age like he's been he's kind of been like the fulcrum of so much of their success and attack and he's kind of been in some ways like the stopping blocked pulic really being able to get on the field I know and also so I think we need to analyze how pulic has played in the games that he's played. He's got ample opportunity to make an impression I would say over the last month and the change in formation worries me so they went three at the back against wolves now. It wasn't widely successful because I still think that Chelsea defense is like a sieve save but but that changes the configuration of the midfield 'cause you're you're playing wingbacks and it lessens the opportunity for Pulitzer to get into the squad because behind behind Tommy Abraham is mason moment who's made such a good impression on. Let's be honest. Frank Lampard has signed Mason Mount twice a looney. Let Derby and again to a permanent contract. That's his guy dots his guy okay lampert insane. Christian Pulisic and William is hitting a bit of form so that too there you would expect specked pulic to play in there. Actually I would like to see him in there because when he's done his best work for Chelsea in this in those cameos that he's had so far are it's being when he's been kind of more inside in the middle of the pack rather than coming in off the torch line but there is no touchline no when you're playing with the wingbacks he's not gonNA play wingback wingback. Where's he going to play that concerns me dot formation change? We saw wolves. Some Chelsea. Fans got upset about US Andrew that we didn't talk enough about these academy guys coming coming through I wonder I saw some of those tweets and I was wondering if they sent that before listening to the podcast in its entirety because we did spend time talking about Tammy Abraham at the end of the point we did but they want more for. This isn't a Chelsea podcast while they're getting don't they know this is a Tottenham in Liverpool when I say they're getting it right now. formation change don't know if it solves Chelsea's ABC's problems at the back but it definitely doesn't have Christian Pulisic. Ask for the academy guys. I'm I said I don I went on what podcast we go on. London's blue. We were both on London is blue and I saw this as a sense Chelsea. Fan should have the sense that this is a season over new for them. They'll finally do what they were supposed to do with this Behemoth Academy which is Play Academy players shortly. That's what an academy is for Andrew. It's to have have players come through to replenish the first team squad and that hasn't happened in over twenty years even pre Abramovich. It wasn't happening what was happening to a lesser extent pencils Jody Morris John Kerry etc but this is a good thing though for Chelsea definitely boss. It's hard for me to go crazy about this new policy when it came by them breaking breaking the rules to to furnish that Academy with young players the reason they all that Mount Abraham and all these guys are getting the run. They're getting is because caused. Chelsea broke the rules originally sometimes in life. It's not fair but you can wind up being right for the wrong. Reasons correct and Chelsea may kind of fall ass backwards into into that like you're right mound right like it was never their intent. They want to spend like they are spending club. I Know Abramovich may be changed his ways this little bit little bit in recent years like they're spending club. you know they expect to be in contention for the world's best players. That's how they operate but now with this transfer Ben they've almost been left with no choice. They're gonNA find out still about callum Hudson and when he comes back from his injury that'll be another young player that they're gonNA probably you know work in and find out if he's he's part of their future so they're going to end up with the season ending sure they may not have the onfield success and finishes high as they want. I don't know what they're gonNA but in the long run like this could really be a valuable season in determining the the course of their future and it's good to see that this is what Academies Afar though they're not to bring player Zane A. and then firearm limo to other clubs and then sell them on for money like that's not what they're meant to be on it. It's it's good to see this happening which Elsa and if I'm Chelsea Fan I understand their excitement. Absolutely I would feel optimistic. These are the players that are easy to root for guys who clerked lawyer system right these. There's something kind of fresh for that. Ah for Chelsea fans like you know we see that with the Yankees here is like guys like John. Carlos Stanton are never embraced by the fans but you know but like a two forty hitter who came up through the Yankee Anki system will be propped up like some kind of deity. That's just how it is. Fans want to root for those guys and so this could wind up being some unexpected fun for Chelsea this loss however ever is not good. They're now gonna Ha. I mean obviously but they're not going to have to do something at some point in this group stage that maybe they had hoped like they're going to have to go on the road and win at I xe or when it goes back to Valencia you know they might have to go and do something right. It's hard. It's not going to be easy for them. a couple others from Tuesday that I did want to mention quickly Borussia Dortmund in Barcelona celona. This was this was telling me I don't WanNa draw too many conclusions from just the first group stage of a champion because by the time this competition ends. We're not even going to remember what what the hell was that happened today. However I think that Barcelona I I said on our preview podcast La- the other day that I still think they are the favourite but look at what happens so this ends nil nil but like how many times jj with Barcelona do they leave? I don't care who they're playing where they're playing. How difficult couldn't atmosphere it's Barcelona? They don't leave places thinking thank God we got out of there with a nil nil vow not what we've come to expect and when you dive into the numbers of of this and if you watch the game you would probably be able to see this on your own but jj Dortmund had a three point five one expected goals that is the most by a team to be shut out in a champions. I League match in the last ten seasons. Meanwhile Barcelona had just a zero point three eight expected goals that third fewest in a Champions League game in the last ten seasons the fewest that they've had since against Bar Munich in two thousand thirteen hundred did they just have one shot on target like how did this end nil nil. I Know Markle Roy's Mr penalty also who was Julian was it Julian Bruce Land One off the crossbar and they missed one later on. I think it might have been saved or cleared off the Line Jin Sancho. There's ball that sent her to him and I'm just like put your list is through it get your head over the ball and he leans back and it goes into Rosette Dortmund were utterly dominant and they're going to look back on this one and think we left behind particularly if messy grease men and everyone clicks in together for the return leg dots in in the new camp I feel for them if it goes the other way because this was the moment they could have given them a right royal hiding America ogden other good piece on ESPN AFC people should read Barcelona's biggest problem. However is the back where jared PK is becoming a liability against forwards would pay some movement on two occasions thirty two year olds lack of mobility Saum exposed in dangerous? There's positions on the edge of the Barcelona penalty area Clement Longley is a solid but unspectacular centre-half and he does not give Bass Lorna the protection they need with PK beginning into short frayed is that you can you watch that game you absolutely see it. There was also a lack of control and midfield the couldn't get near Royse. I know he's had combing parodies. This could have been a megawatt Jaden Sancho. I'm megawatt. He warned the penalty he did a lot of good things Andrew he could have had two goals and this was a frustrating one for Bruce Dorfman but for Barcelona and look I know messy only came on the fifty ninth minute so he got about thirty minutes in. He's still working self self back to four hundred is he's not there yet so this is it's not fair of me to fully judge Barcelona but I I remember I'm watching this game yesterday and I'm just making like if their favorites then this competition is wide open so it remains to be seen like like I said you don't take my full Barcelona but they're playing sixteen year olds. I mean you're talking talking about the with a shaky central defensive today's of peak PK ancarlo polio are are gone. That's not this Barcelona now. The sixteen year old are playing especially especially one important. If you're breaking into Barcelona's first team as a sixteen year old your special what part of it is a little bit juice tackle the other side who it is you know Luis Suarez who's been the one of the best players in the world in the top flight probably last certain top-five attackers for the last how many years now we're we're beginning to see signs of age signs of a bit of a slowing down the way he used to price and Harry and hassle isn't quite there anymore so and you just feel like like it's GonNa Click but as we sit here in mid-september like I dunno with Grease Man I mean look they're coming off a couple of five goal performances domestically caustically but I still feel like there's time for Greece men messy. They haven't really had a chance to play together. Put themselves in position in a quarterfinal and the semifinal I firmly I firmly believe they'll still do that. Because that's where it all happens bought. Can I put my hand on my heart and say they won't get bullied like they did at Anfield last season. No I can't yeah they seem fragile. They seem fradulent. I would say for them. Just get through the group stage regardless. If you win the group if in a second get through get through and then once we reach the knockout stage you've gotta think okay messy will have worked his way back into form him and grease men will have some kind of chemistry. I just think it's going to click but as as we sit here today I don't think it has andrews motivational tapes order now for season one of just get through dare you survive in advance. This is a common the phrase going in and your little manager suit into the Bachelor and addressing room looking around with some of the players there guys just get through just bare minimum bare minimum fellas breath Tony Robbins. I am not let's see Inter Milan and Slavia Prague Inter at the death one one they get out of the this was at home. I'm sorry in Syria again it is God's punishing them for Doing Nike's bidding by wearing their away shirt at all. This is now a sadly uncommon occurrence. Yes what is this. I hit you think it's really just based out of what others reason. I don't know over it. Come on you know the weird thing like why does it bother us. I'll tell you why Andrew Okay the let me stretch my anthropological soccer head for a second the relationship between callers and fans like if there's one thing that unites the players players on the field and the fans in the stands is that the banner that's being waived is the same color as the guys have on the field. It's a connection and when you take that away because you want to sell more more of your throwback Nike Jersey. It really really annoys me. I mean look they have to pay for that. Awesome photo shoot somehow that where they went into the race track yet the hipster kids with their some of their most die hard fans. They took them to a racetrack except pictures of the most die-hard model fans you've ever seen Google blue steel was everywhere. let's see Leon and Zenit Saint Petersburg this one also ends one one I xe three Lille nil. I actually told people don't sleep on Lille good well picking up. Where were they left off and I think you know it's funny? Man Like okay so I- acs were Kinda like pillaged a little bit in having lost a Yang and elect but kept a core but there are still plenty of key cogs from what they did last season Zayakin is still there. dusen Tadic is still there. David is still they're like don't worry about. I xe everybody. They're still like I if you're going to take them lightly the way you did last year now it's on you like the secret's out. How have they kept talking? Zayeck like honestly how if they can even kept Dusan Tadic will he signed a new contract one thing he's GonNa unbelievable. He's he's going to be like. He'll be remembered as an ex player. Now I know maybe for financial fair-play carving some enthusiasm of clubs like Dusen Taizhou Tadic his season last last season was so good and so good in a very demonstrable way in Europe that if I'm a club that needs somebody like him. You know he's not gonNA cost that much. He's in his early thirties thirty one just throw money at him and and we'll get to this later as well when we talk about the Athletico Madrid event this match but I wanNA break off and go down a concacaf road for just a SEC. If you'll allow me okay Edson Alvarez scored in this game yes things are happening right now with Mexican players out of scare where if if the same things were happening and and it was pure lasek and dust and wear who and the same things were happening and it was those guys doing it. Jj We would be losing our effing minds. There would be guys who would have to take multiple weeks off work and they'd have to phone in and say what's happened. I've had a pleasure overload see my I'm scared for what is happening with this Mexican team right. Now you think about Lozano and like like I said Alvarez has now scored in the champions some Nice touches and Napoli and Hector Harare is now coming into his own and scored a massive goal earlier today to equalize a- against the event this like we see what Carlos Villa is doing demain even a part of the Mexican does even get into team right like we've seen Tito. Come back into the squad and dominate like I I know we just witnessed it firsthand but now you see these guys like it resonates differently because like we see Mexico. US they play each other and like Mexico's great but it's hard to know what it means until you see these guys go back to clubs in Europe and do huge things on a Champions League stage dude if that if these were American players Oh my God we would be so insufferable insufferable right now. Oh we we would be the absolute worst. You couldn't listen to this game. You probably can't no but it's really kind of counter dot with can it. Can I mentioned desks. Are you GonNa do that little go. he had a fine outing finding this is from a Brian Skarupa I'm probably saying that wrong. he rove as for his international future it remains open the air desks admitted after the game he had yet to hear from Dutch manager Ronald Koeman to which we all went. Yes who was in New York desk was interested in the fact that Kumon when was watching. Did he see it. Yes desk I said after the game before adding but no I haven't received a message from him so he's even tuned into the fact that Kumon would be watching. He's keenly aware of his situation yes hoping he would maybe wouldn't realize now the the thing is I think if the if the switch the one time which was offered for the twenty three's he's not taking that. It's going to be a promotion to the dog you of you know where I stand on this. I know it's not a good place. He's it's over. It's all we gotta find a new fullback. let's see a couple more from Tuesday. Jj Benfica and rb Leipzig to one Leipzig going on the road and winning in Portugal good win for them to start their champions run win for the company quietly talking talking about lipstick as being able like the Bundesliga is widely viewed as a two-horse race with Byron Munich and Borussia Dortmund but I'm hearing a small growing chorus of those that think Leipzig should be included in that group. I think they've been knocking on the door. No for a few seasons two years ago then last year felt like may back yeah I could see why certainly last but not least this was the eye popping game of the day Salzburg six gang two oh and Jesse Marsch flying the flag for the US six goals in his Champions League can't even played the America is backdrop because it doesn't Mark America's never been here before is quite something yeah and it was really quite something for Erling browde Holland third youngest player Claire to register a hat trick in Champions League history. Do you WanNa try to name the two younger one of them was a nerdy kid with glasses that when I saw him interviewed reviewed and not on the field I thought how was this a player. This is when I was a kid way what role Oh yeah to wear glasses so I heard there was an interview on TV and I was like yes Roy who oh my favorite young player. I can't see this. We sat down and watched it here. Was this no word on Oh nerds great. I'm honored but this guy with glasses. He looked like a trainee bank manager this way back in the day water player he was Wayne Rooney us the other Yeah Rooney Rooney against Fenner Abacha at Old Trafford Yeah what a performance though Oh yes and you know who he is the son of Alfie Fienga Holland Yep you may remember him from such Roy Keane tackles this Dr David as a record it dismissing Roy Keane. David just united's captain for the time that tackle was so hideous isn't that terrible Alfie Haaland Son's exploits lead us down Roy Keane tackles wormhole both youtube videos before the show. We watched that one and then you're like okay you see when he punched Alan Shearer so we gotta pull that one up oh but did you see when he stopped on Gareth Southgate Southgate so we've got to pull that one up yeah. He's an animal. He's an animal. Jj your all time favorite player right. He's he's one of my favorite players of all time yeah absolutely you won't commit though you say one of He's let me okay so he would go. He was my hero growing jarred. Am I right so far with wanting wanted to yeah Rui Costa one of gun that Yeah I have a lot. There's a lot then in a lower tier below law that okay but that's typically top three it can change but the problem with keen was growing up chemo so good for Manchester United but he was Irish and it broke my heart been Liverpool. We'll find really hurt me but anyway we should. We should say that Erling out Holland looks the business and that nine goal also salvo he had at the Twenties World Cup wasn't a flash in the PAN. No I think he's the goods he's the goods by the way we should mention Jesse Marsch again Brian Scherzer tweeted this Jesse. Marsh wins his first champions the game over gang six two in the nine games. Marsh has been in charge seven League one Champions League went Austrian Cup Saas Borg has outscored its opponents forty seven nine for a plus thirty eight goal differential an average of five point two goals scored Burgum good Lord. Those figures are astounding well. Look everyone's going to say yeah but look where they're doing it. Oh they just scored six in a Champions League. I Sino an island also say he's a company man went through but like he cares. I don't even understand that criticism. He still producing the goods. Yeah I think at a certain point people have to stop with that. I kind of liked his teams at the Red Bulls the way they played. They press really well. They pass the ball really well. I mean if anything we were always impressed with his red bulls teams. They just couldn't get over the line right well. That was it he would have won multiple. I'm GonNa make the new new championship American League championships had he had been the first pasta polls drew most points wins but it was never the case and playoffs did for him Yep. I'll tell you what let's take a quick break. We're GONNA come back. We're going to go through Wednesday's matches which of course include Tottenham throwing away another two goal lead event is throwing away to go lead Byron Munich and Red Star Belgrade. PS G. and Real Madrid which was probably your result of the day we'll get to all of that and more don't go anywhere geico presents. Thanks another voicemail from your roommate separately.

Jj Run into a bit of dilemma which you'll love so you know I just moved and can we ever jingle for this. No Andrews Thailand Liz one. No this is so up your alley so like like you oftentimes on this podcast like you'll joke you. Call me Andy Percy. Andy and now people actually call me that winter is the Andy Her uh-huh twitter will be like Andy and then something something something and like whatever like I don't love that name for me. It's fine for some people. It's just not what I go. Oh by I go by Andrew or people call me by my last name or whatever but like whatever it's yeah so a guy comes over he knocks on our door wants just introduce himself on no and he super friendly nice guy and you know I introduced myself my wife introduce herself and then as he's leaving. He's like all right. I just WanNa make sure remember your name's Amanda. Andy and I'm not going to be that guy who's like no it's and so and then he closes the door and windows and now I'm. I'm Andy now. Let the windows gone but I just don't understand these end and like I hope he's not a listener to this podcast because like I don't want him to feel bad. It was incredibly nice of them to come over over in just like knock on our door like that to introduce himself really nice guy but I just don't understand Andy and Andrew are different names. As far as I'm concerned and I don't get like people people who decide. That's like Oh Andrew so you. You're handy like no. That's not the case and you were paralyzed with with with if someone's his name is Michael to me. It's a leap to then walk out the door and be like all right Mikey our Mickey. I wouldn't say that that's it's an incredibly but like I don't know like I'm more different names to me. I'm more astounded that your window couldn't stop come on. I couldn't sti- already in the minutes you are seconds. You're saying those sentences I came up with an excuse straightaway no sorry can you call me Andrew and I it was weird. I hate that guy that comedian Andy Andy Dick. I think he's the worst and I hate when people remind me of by calling me Andy Sandra Yeah. I'M GONNA say this to a guy that I've got seconds earlier at any neighborhood. You're now why said into Amanda I said here's what you have to do. We're at any kind of like neighborhood gathering just address me constantly Andrew D- What's Jack Doing Andrew. Can you grab let me something from the fridge. Andrew this inter that just say it and say it and say it until it's drilled into people's heads so you WanNa make your wife look like a complete cycle to make what psychotic about that Andrew Andrew Andrew Andrew's while that is not her voice and that's insulting what you're doing right now. So is this neighbor better than the neighbor that used to sing it you he has nothing has ever made me uncomfortable so there was so Andrew's wife mind is she's involved in in choirs and all sorts of musical pursuits yes she's she's amazing voice and she's amazing musical mind the woman next door hearing this just loved it does your old neighbor and so she came across she started singing. One day she she looked and gazed directly into andrews is all the way through the song as if it was meant for his soul and his ears only she locked you're right she locked. I contact did not remove and sang somewhere over the rainbow to me and it was when I look at her. I was looking all over the room because so I have you ever had someone someone do that where they just sing sing at yeah at you never you and like it's just so horribly uncomfortable yeah. I don't even like thinking about it. let's see we continue now. Jj with Wednesday's Champions League matches club Bruges galatassary that ended nil nil. I honestly have nothing to say about it. Sorry supporters orders of those clubs and then there was this Tottenham and Olympiakos to to is your final spurs throwing away a two goal. Oh lead your have. We heard that before that apparently is a thing that they do now yeah I will say it was red hot atmosphere at the stadium on Olympia ACA started well. Let's be honest. They played very well. Spurs score two goals possibly against the run of play a little bit the penalty the penalty was against the run play. It was a penalty. Lucas Moore was excellent. What a goal boy? It's if I'm going to take any positive out of this. I don't like it's becoming harder and harder to watch him and just like the house they're not a place in the in the starting eleven for him consistently gently. You have to earn your cord under Pudgy Tino has he not I would have said so yet. How many how many huge goals has this guy scored for this club in the last year and he give spurs something a little bit different like I know Sawn as quick and he can take his arm but he's such a direct runner and he's a very instinctive player like Andrew that was bobbling along and he just he just struck it right into the coroner? He's he's got different ways. Finishing he scores toppings. He scores goals like that. No it was a brilliant alien coal and you Kinda thought at that point okay the I are not the Amsterdam Geez. It's on your mind the Olympia coz reporters reporters who were so beserk at the start of this game. You're they're going to stop. They're going to be taken out of this game like you're taking the wind out of Olympiakos sales. I don't look it was huge Olympiakos to get one right before the half. That's just always when you're down to that. Just such a big time to get a goal Tottenham needed to get terribly really well defended to be honest they need Ben. Davies was just behind the play. You know potch Eighteen I. I don't know I can't sit here and tell you that something happened with Davinson Sanchez. That particularly bothered me but you know he's playing at right back. It's not his position Ben Davies Center box fullback Ben Davies starting starting today hasn't started yet this season like I know you have to rotate the squad but I don't know if there's part of me that just like would have liked to have seen him play. Who who your best eleven? It's the first Champions League game. Let's start this off with three points. I know it's Olympia Kasey think you can beat them. Even if it's not your preferred eleven but like let's let's not take any games for granted like they sometimes have in Champions Leagues before let's not have this be a stressful group stage experience. You know they still get a point at a place that is somewhat somewhat difficult but there when you do that when you when you throw away a win three points for one even though it's on the road your margin for error decreases sure so now you can't hit like don't don't don't slip up at home against them. you know so there are GonNa have to go to Belgrade which is not an easy place to go you you can't like I just keep thinking about last year and how Tottenham how to dig so deep just to get out of the group stage and how stressful it wasn't how much needed to break their way for for it to happen and like they had a chance to really start on the right foot and they kinda threw it away yes but I would say this. If there is a bright spark to taken you defeat would have been I won't say catastrophic but what was it would have been close. Your avoided that yes that was important aren't yes that is true one other thing about this not on the Tottenham side one of the fun things about the Champions League is that you are exposed to fan fan bases and clubs that you're the let's be honest. I'm not watching Greek football culture right so you know you are introduced to players. I walked away from this game. Today was like Daniel Potts. Hello he was excellent. Yes and so that's kind of you know Cadel Guerrero for Olympiakos today and like Matthew Valbuena well Valbuena was the revelation for me because he had slid off my radar the whole controversy surrounding his private life and and that that whole core case that was happening over the video and that was really he kind of being exiled from the French national team mm-hmm and he was just gone off radar really. I hadn't thought about him and he was accent. Let's be fair. A Guerrero is the epitome of journeyman striker. I think he had one really good spell in Spain where he put a bunch of games together and score but he what he's by no means prolific but here he is popping up a finding joining a new lease of life these clubs. I don't like saying that they only serve journeyman players. Are there like places where players can go and get redemption but they do offer that like the fact that Olympic Champions League in have these cast of disparate characters very interesting yeah like you don't you don't love it when it comes TMZ at your team's expense. No it's kind of fun seeing these players that you don't really know much about and you're like oh well that guy can play and I remembered how much I used to love Boina an and he's still got somebody all magic yeah short arms box some of the shortest arms I've ever seen him insecurity in a fight right not yeah yeah not big reach numbers like it'd be very face to face fighting but yeah I always. I don't know that's just the thing for me with Balbuena arms. Jj Athletico Madrid to the events to what a game. I feel if this is the game was should've watched 'cause I watched. APS G. and Rail Madrid. You probably weren't thinking that when it was too ill you've survey. I wasn't so I checked in on it and I was like I was sad because there's a part of me that really wants Simoni to get the big one old big ears and and really cap off what is being an amazing spell as manager of this team and then then event is decided to do what they've been doing regularly this this season both domestically and no one Europe is give up goals on set-pieces managed away. He's got to run then. He goes the two right now. I'm not blaming licked or Banou chief for for I'm not blaming them for Hariri Herrera's Goule Am I. Maybe I'm not all I'm saying is conflict. I'm conflicted because yes. I've seen direct do his vince from pulp fiction too much now it happened again and it wasn't his fault on the equalizer by the way are not the fastest are the licked. I didn't the first goal like he's in the picture but to me. It's not that's not on no no. It's it's not on him Andrew because I think the was it Alexandra Sandra he got gold side of the attacking Benton Core Benton court okay so the marking wasn't grid but I'm just. I'm not convinced that Saris figured that defense out yet and that's that's going to happen. They're in a transition. You Lose Kia leany I mean Benicio is back but he's older as well. He's not getting younger. I will say this though about events like yeah they throw a two goal lead for them. This is not into the world stuff they went to difficult place and got a point so I'm sure beforehand they probably would have been willing to sign up for that and what's more the goals that they scored Lord like you can still tell that they are like they are of a certain class. Quadra does go and he doesn't score goals scored since I'm trying to some time back in two thousand eighteen and he's been cut inside and buried this then there was a brilliant cross from Alexandra that left it on the head of tweedy ball then you have igwe bursting through through and put the head down rotted or black makes the save when he should have really squared to Renaldo. I want to ask you about that one square so you do feel that way because there are people that would say look uh even as a striker and his mentality when he's in that position even though it's not a perfect angle strikers mentality is I can do this. I should I gotta go for goal. Here is as you know in watching the replay it looks Regis Rinaldo running into space and there's like a green makes the past right Renato tapped. It's easiest golden goal ever scored scored. I'm an bobby for me no state of mind where he is just desperately unselfish and we'll square to anyone at any moment and but like do we know that Egwu lean is the passer that from you know who is like there's a chance that he doesn't make the PAT like that passed. You're suggesting he took the best option available to him. Maybe the best chance for me to fire one across the face goal. Maybe it gets smacked right into Ronaldo's Pathan scores anyway now. The other side to that is that Renaldo himself created a wonderful he slammed through the Athleti defense opened up and you're expecting to see the net bulge and I'm sure he was two and by his standards that was shocking miss. I hate saying that's not he's created something out of nothing to wiggle through and he's opened his body just that little bit too much to slotted into the far corner and he's he's put it white so so times a Rinaldo Aldo step over nothing will make you roll your eyes quite like Rinaldo step over in certain situations not these he had the I don't remember the defender was that was marking him but he had that guy shaking on a plate yeah yeah two two though great game the game I should have watched. I have no got that the sense of regret let's see Leverkusen. Lokomotiv Moscow Moscow goes to Germany and wins to one big result for them. That's huge. That's a huge results and labor. Kuzin are going to be very upset. Considering on the possession steaks on. I know possession doesn't mean everything but when you have almost eighty percent of it it's it's got to mean something right at the end the mistake from goalkeeper had Iraqi. That's the for Lokomotiv Moscow again a goalkeeper what he's doing i Andrew and he plays it's. It's a very good finish by the way by the locomotive player puts again. They should have at least got point that one Leverkusen let's see we stay in Germany buyer communiqu three red star Belgrade nil. I'd say business as usual there for Byron. I think so Dinamo Zagreb Atalanta Atalanta's Champions League does not I get off on the right foot four nil not the result people were expecting no it. Wasn't I grab so there's that element to it but Atalanta have been why wing people since last season with their performances with their style of play fifth in Syria to come up with a result to get battered in that fashion is I didn't see that coming anyway. let's see Manchester City city go on the road to a place that can be difficult and they win three nil I honestly I don't have a ton to say there and last but not least jj Aj the game that you did watch PS G. and Real Madrid three nil for the Parisian side was easy was this statement statement Stu hold and said on the B our country analysis whatever you WANNA call it that it's a statement results. I think it's the statement that Real Madrid are in serious serious bother rather than suggesting that ps G. R. Everything thing we that is unfair to PS g now they're playing without Neymar without Imbaba and without Cavani or and they still go three nil over rail can impressive. Can I say the impressive things about and then we'll get to the negative negative things about Real Madrid at Gay. It just gone again in the middle of the Park Andrew his he was magnificent Martinez variety. They bullied the Real Madrid midfield not as northward nor worthy because we we questioned before both at midfield we've talked before about the cohesion we talked before about I mean the intangibles this steel of that midfield they had all of that tonight they were excellent and they covered and they but I know there were excellent. It was too easy Andrew Real Madrid. We did not have a shot on target. That's unbelievable. I had the stat here zero shots on goal today. It's the first time in the last ten seasons four hundred fifty five games one hundred nine in Champions League alone alone that Real Madrid had failed to get a shot on goal in a game that is causing me to temper so much of my psg joy now demaurice had an unbelievable game Andrew. He was full of the joys of spring. He was popping up everywhere. The gold that he got was in an Orthodox finish where he's it's almost toll poke volley. That was the opener and the next one he picks it up. His Ron is so intelligent. He's in the box and sees if I just take five yard run out open my a body open can score. Do you ever notice sometimes when someone takes a strike catches you off guard. You're like where's he got the power from that. There seemed to be very little backswing or I suppose you wind up and he's buried it unbelievable forms and at the end the third goal was humiliating for Madrid. It's the two in full backs Bernas and Mooney. Yeah Combined Burnett sets up Mounier for the goal. The toolbox are bombing forward into empty space. Larry Court courtoisie out of net. It looked all look totally helter skelter at the back for Real Madrid. I know you're hearing rumors out of Spain and we all take rumors from the Spanish top of everything. We're hearing about Merino back to sort this ode I really that's that's GonNa fires at dawn. I don't know it is look at Israel Madrid so all bets are off good Lord. I will say this a a lake not borderline. It was a handball but Gareth Bale was robbed of one of the what would have been on how how is he wrong Andrew. The goal does not rob but I'm saying like in real time when I'm watching it. I said to myself well. There's your goal the tournament it was incre- Craig what a bit of skill the way he keeps it in the air and like the finish is just perfect and it just kinda again. Yes it's a handball. There's no question about got it but oh man in real time. I was like you gotta stand and Applaud Poor Gareth what I actually thought he of he was quite in the second half ago. Taken off of the Real Madrid performers in the first half bail was pretty good on that was not hard Yeah Marino's name MS trending. Oh my God now. What does that mean it means you know what it means? It means that we're GONNA finish recording this podcast. We're GONNA I'M GONNA get in my car and you're going to text me and say Don's odds out marine does and we gotTA rerecord. I'm not saying that's happening. No I'm saying that it might be in the works. Don't forget that the Paresh Alonzo of Real Madrid still hanker. You're an harbor a love for plenary style. It's so weird you know one thing with ps g that I'm thinking about what like what the Hell is their their preferred eleven if everyone's healthy like we're talking about De Maria and this renaissance performance that he had tonight. Where's he going to play I- Cardi Yeah we we talked about that when they signed him well? If you look at the front three that started tonight at Sarabia Cardi de Maria who's getting bumped there for lesser yeah right okay so who's getting bumped then for killing Imbaba when he comes back probably Accardi 'cause demaree played better sorry. He stayed longer obviously he's he's got a relationship with the other two players. I don't know it's GonNa be interesting yeah so I don't want them as much as I used. I think we both thought when they signed Theresa Gay that didn't feel like your typical. PSG signing we thought OK maybe they're actually trying to build a team here that works works but then they go and get a Cardi and it's like well. They just want us. Four thousand goals. I feel like to chill is flexing his muscle somewhat. Maybe this was a statement when I'm comfortable saying I don't know they're going to go on and they're going to win the whole damn thing you're ready to bring down the stretch here absolutely sir. Let's do this red card hard. Can I go I. I what is that look. It's like unheard of that. I could possibly go. I know you've been doing it a lot. Lately that is so so untrue. I think you're trying to take power from me. It's like a coup a coup. I do feel like you've been wielding more authority over. You know what Ah I don't even I don't even I'm not GonNa go at all now. I'm GonNa you go and I'm going to hand you my sheet and you can read mine faffing about my Red Red card. Jj is you're just talking about shearer verse Owen and how just Kinda like makes you uncomfortable yeah. I said that a couple of weeks back I didn't like it well. We have another one now. Now Noyer Verse Taken to countryman Mark Underwriter Stadium was unfortunately born in the wrong time is how it seems when he has therefore I've been forced to back up Manuel Noriega for Germany for basically a generation any other time in history. Pagan is probably Germany's number one okay but he was born but Noyer's there. How good was he the other night last night yeah we didn't Oh my God? We didn't even talk about his his penalty. I mean we've said that I know his saves the penalty save a bit of an issue with because if we're going to enforce coming coming off the line he came off the line to come but as performance in general was just great yeah Walter Sagan he he's great he's amazing but he's been forced to back up Moya understandably so for a generation or might be the best keeper in Germany's history one of the best in the history of the sport and it now appears has had enough oh boy I'm reading from the BBC now after being left on the bench for the recent matches against the Netherlands and Northern Ireland Tristan spoke out quote. It's not easy to find an explanation for what I'm experiencing. He said I'm still trying everything but this trip of Germany was tough blow for me noyer than responded by saying should focus on the team adding. I'm not sure if that helps us. He told Sky Germany we are a team and should present ourselves as such. We have great goalkeepers. We have Kevin TRAPP burnt Leno. These are all great goalkeepers who also want to play and then sit on the bench. We are a team team. We have to stick together. The goalkeepers also have to stick together tear steak and then shot back. I don't think it's up to men well to express an opinion on my feelings. Everyone has seen how has seen how I have conducted myself over the last few years that's word not great. Where do you fall on this like? part of me. In the end is Kinda like I thought everyone's wrong. Slash everyone's right like I completely understand tear stake can being frustrated and being caught in the wrong moment by the media where that frustration bubbled out. He wants to play and he's a great player. He thinks that he should be playing. I respect that competitiveness but by the same token you shouldn't say it it does make you look a little bit selfish and by the same token I think noer probably didn't need the stirred up by like I don't know if this is too harsh for me to say but noyer his tone here is kind of like scolding Tur- stake in for saying hang anything he could have said Look Marc Andre is he's a tremendous player and you know it's an unfortunate situation that we just happen to have teen full of great keepers like there might have been a kinder gentler way to defuse it rather than saying. You need to be thinking about the team. You shouldn't be saying these things. Did you not think that after the so Korea game and the subsequent purge that Noyer would be in that no I did not I thought after his performance nor Noyer's what what thirty three to stage and I think is twenty seven. It's GonNa be interesting at the next at the European Championships but why get rid of like homos Muller her just say that's it were moving on a not move on to the best goalkeeper. While are you prepared to say her stake in his better than noyer me might be right now. It's close. I don't but yeah I don't know so yeah I thought that was just made me feel uncomfortable. Come on get along is at my record is also from the BBC. They have put together the well. It's basically add onto this continuing saga at Inter Milan line and it's more focused obviously this time on not the ultra both the Calgary fans because Andrew they have been cleared of racist chanting towards words Inter Milan striker Rahm Lulu Kako in Syria much chance were aimed at Lukaku as he was about to take a penalty in a two one victory at this ardinger arena but according to a sports judge acting on behalf of the Italian Football Federation there was not enough evidence for Anne Sanctions Calgary war however refined five thousand euros for throwing plastic bottles onto the pitch a Parma on Sunday the report admitted that chance shouts and whistles were were directed at Lukaku by Kyri fines but they were not enough in quotes size and perception to bring about any form of punishment went against the club and its supporters is the third time that the club is being investigated for alleged racist abuse in the last two years after cases involving serving Moi's Cain the Israeli forward now at Everton and his you've entity met France International Blazed tweedy but no action has been taken on each occasion consistency is thereby word. How ridiculous do they sound size and perception Andrew? I don't I have nothing else to add yeah that sounds alone. Silence silence will shore contempt for that caught offsides man of the the match. Jj I would like for you to go. I thank you I'm going to the homeland that misty islander that you visited once I'm going to the capital city Bohemians F C. This is Emmet Malone. The Times Bohemian Football Club is to team up with the National Council for the blind of Ireland to pilot project intended to make life football more accessible to supporters of the game who are visually impaired the scheme which is common money bigger leagues abroad involves tailored alert commentary being provided by visual by visual impairments specialists to small numbers of fans using earpieces. The commentary comes in through just one ear in order to allow the crowd and match noise to be heard through the other and the intention is to allow users of the service to enjoy games. They might not otherwise be able to completely follow the hope is the hope is that if the trial goes well over the remaining four league games for Home League Games Bohemian season the possibility of involving other clubs jobs can be explored. We're going to use it as pilots game that we can then evaluate says James Flannel of the NCBI you want people with sight loss to be able to access football you you want them at games and if things go well then hopefully it will get other clubs thinking. I just love this idea. One of my favorite adverts from way back back in the day in the mid nineties was a coca cola advert when Coca Cola were really getting involved in football in England and one of them was of a blind West Ham fan and on this guy was his east London as they get and he sat there with his maid who commentated the game to him while he drinks in the crowd noises at the bowling ground and it gets to the moment where Julian Dicks has a penalty Dick's steps up and the blind find gets opening pumping any so into the game. I'm not sure struck me so much when I read this this is a really good idea and I'm wondering if anybody out there knows if mls offers this because there's a lot of modern stadia and I'm thinking this would be something to give to the blind community and blind football supporters and by the way are there any blind football supporters who listen to this podcast cast reach out. Let me know is there anything I can do to to to make the experience better for you. Maybe we can be the guys who go and commentate for P. I listen I. I'm willing to do that for again. Lord knows we're not going to be hired by any major networks to do it. Not Not with the way things are going that would be that'd be really cool. Actually that's nice great great shot by you ready for Mine I am there was a time once where I had a hard time thinking of a red card and so I just went with bad stat trivia where I felt like a Lotta. I love negative stats. I had a hard time finding a man of the match this time so you know what I did a lot of about the champions. FBI leaks return ready to play. I'm really not no choice. Christ good stat trivia all right here we go Robert Levin Dusky scored for Byron Today. He now has fifty four champion Champions League goals that is sixth most in history. Do you want to try to name the guy's ahead of them. Don't think too hard Venice the Roy very good. That would have been the tough one roll yeah Renou low messy. One more blanket player row Madrid Red Benza very good very good. I'm very proud of you. Okay here. We go. We mentioned he'll do Maria before he became the fifth Argentine to score twenty plus Champions League goals. You can name the other four just named one Gabrielle About Astuter no Sergio Guero yes Sergio you just said his name a easy the greatest Argentinean or who did I say Roy Massey Lena Messy right yeah what would Bob Bradley Serrano. Se Cool Hey missy me. Come on you can be messy careless. I forget about them so she's she's being so long and span. Well somebody missing the messy Guero okay. I'll give you a hint here.

Caught Offside: the prophecy of Spurs

"Great news. There's a quick way. You can save money. Switch to Geico. Geico could help you get great coverage at a great price. And it only takes fifteen minutes to see if you could save fifteen percent or more on car insurance. Go to Geico dot com today and see how much you could save. Caught off side with every gummy and JJ Davani. Under all summer. Oh, yes. Cold outside from you, ever west side of Manhattan. And we're only JJ Danny what's up man to better than you. Anyway. Yeah. You're are. You are. You are quite the wet blanket today. I'm not gonna fake it. I don't know. I don't know what people your response to the French gift. I brought you the spy actually did not see it. Well, it's a cross aunt right here. And it's something French that won't that you don't. Could use could use one of those. Thank you. That's very nice of you. I will eat that. It's okay. Oh my God. Yeah. Look, there's some voodoo doughnut that gold at the cop end, isn't there? Yeah. Yeah. There really is. Of course, you referencing the the Pickford error from earlier in the season against Everton. We will of course, talk about the caught offside Cup at great length. I'm sure also I do want to mention later in the podcast. We're gonna talk with Louis miles. He is a director of documentary that just came out called Kaiser the greatest footballer never to play football. I was not even really aware of this documentary. You brought it to my tension. I forced it onto the podcast. But it makes sense. But it does make sense. It's something completely different. It is a story that only football could have an it's about a guy who had a twenty six year career at the top of Brazilian football. And never kicked a ball. I don't know if it's fair to call him, a conman. Yes, it is is it. Well, when people hear the story that Louis will tell his. Documentary. It's if he's not a con, man, what is it? He literally conned his way onto one club after another after another without really having any ability to play the sport. But top players that played alongside him. I say plate that trend with him. That knew him that knew him definitely were complicit in it. Because in some way, but but we will save that for the interview. So that will be obviously, we'll do kind of all of our regular stuff on the podcast mailbag coming up. And then we'll talk with Louis at the end of the podcast. So if deterrence about that, make sure you stay tuned because it just actually debuted in the US today on April Fools day. Yeah. Which seems oddly fitting we will have a podcast mid week. I promise I promise because we really haven't. I'm LS. Let's be honest. It's been a rumor on this podcast iphone games. All right. Have we talked about them? It's been a rumor, and that's because the Premier League has been just like enthralled sane the last few weeks, and then the US had their friendly's. Last week. So I do promise that we're going to do our conclusions week mid week. Now, I think about it. We're talking about a fake footballer on the podcast today rather than the actual footballers of major league said week will be our own. Well, we will jump to conclusions. I watched some games at the weekend. I wedged them in in between watching huge amounts of Brexit. The two hour Alex Jones deposition. Really? Yep. And what else did I watch? I've written don't hear Plaskitt ball to say between baseball starting. And March madness. I was kinda hoping we could just talk college basketball today is that possible. I would love to speak about Carson Edwards. I have so many thoughts on him on Mike chef ski and just his for the legendary is I thought this was just like one of the worst coaching jobs. I've ever seen him do all. That's that. All just have to be for another day that that'll be for the cough. Backboard. Just go home and yell at Jack. All my thoughts about college. It was super sweet the message you sent me. Of of your little boy on the soul for prior to the game hopes and dreams in his is saying in his little little boy voice. Come on you Spurs. It was Zoll lovely and Alder little prodding. No, very the product and also fitting to have his dreams destroyed. Although he napped during the game. He didn't actually see any of it. Really? I sent that message. And then Amanda came home, and he went up and took a nap. I was I was before we get into it. I just saw I hit these days where I can't text you freely because. One. I'm not trying to troll. You all the time. I'm genuinely not our good friend. Tom fits is trying to troll. Yeah. That's fine. Yeah. But I'm not because I don't want to. I don't want to upset our delicate equilibrium on this podcast will, but you see you have already, and I know that that is genuine, but the the eagles text messages that you've sent me over the years is it's always just going to be in the back of my not trying to get rid of it those things happened. I don't know. It's so bad that in the biggest in the week where you had your biggest win on the podcast in some time. Plug is that what do you mean? Oh, the rap bottle the rap battle. We'll get to that. I was like no this that was a huge win for team gun Gandhi. Yeah. And I know judging by what the score was I can tell the people did not want to vote for me. But felt that they were left with no choice. Good lord. What is wrong with you? What do you mean hick? The W W could tell like, oh, wow. That was Exxon than I thought sorry. So and people were a few sive in their praise. Well, that's very get to that. Let's just talk about the game yet. Here's what I will say before we even really dive into the Geico this today right here. Now, I'd say there have been two podcasts in all the years. We're coming up on our fifth anniversary this month. Yeah. Who would have ever thought like the will? But at any rate, I'd say there have been two podcasts ever that we've done that. I had zero interest in doing this is one of them right now. Do you know what the other one is all the US the US after Trinidad? Yeah. I wanted to go home. I honestly didn't want to say a word. We sat inside. Science for twenty five minutes. It was almost one AM before we even pressed record. I know that was that's that was the, but for some reason, I don't know why this wasn't a Cup. Final Tottenham aren't challenging for a title. They're still in third like their top-four hopes are still alive. They're in the Champions League round quarterfinals leaving into a new stadium on Wednesday. They play their first game. Like, I don't know. I I can't really explain why some losses resonate in the ways that they do. But for whatever reason just the way that that game transpired the kind of like ebbs and flows of the emotion that go along with it. The fact that before the game I was probably already annoyed watching the Liverpool pep rally on NBC, I mean NBC has in pre-game show. Yeah. It's just like all of those things combined. Plus the fact that look now rivalries oftentimes like the reason Tottenham and arsenal or such great rivals is because they both share a neighborhood in north London. I don't live in north London. Now, I respect the hell out of that rivalry and I despise arsenal. Because I you know, I just like I said, I respect that robbery. But ultimately like my rival is you like this is the rivalry free. Right. You're the soccer fan that I deal with right? Okay. And and you deal with tolerance this podcast. Oftentimes is Liverpool weekly because we have so many Liverpool fans that listen to this show through you, which is a testament to you and the power that you kind of have within that community. And so, you know, I get all those tweets from Liverpool fans. So this is the rivalry for me. So for all those things combined it just equated out into a gain that for me personally goes down as one of the worst losses that I can remember in my time as a fan, I put meat on the bones here for you. Because I saw the teams and I saw the way. There were lining up. And I you know, I I'm one of those guys at the is in the Monroe buyer. I because I needed to be amongst my people, and I was openly speaking through the team, and I thought Lucas more is going to cause us problems running in between the lines in a running in behind the fullback positions, which will be vacated because we will play high all those things came to pass. I thought Tottenham started. Well, but Liverpool grew into the game and Liverpool were good value for the first half for their one nil win for their one being on top. But the second half was all a Spurs, and I talked pudgy Tino dealt with excellently on dominated that midfield. I taught this was as good as Spurs performance as we've seen in some time. Now, I can't put my finger on why Spurs Ivan one since February tenth the primarily. I I really can't. I don't understand what that is. Because they have not been misfiring apart from results they have been playing. Well, I say that the war games that they got through prior to February tenth where you're like, they probably should allow. Lost that game. No, you're right. Like go back to the Southampton gay that they wound up losing the first half. They could have been a five, right? Right. So so I can't put my finger on it. But just on this game alone. I thought Spurs were very very good on. If you're asking me if there was going to be a goalkeeper that was going to throw one into the net so to speak. It would not have been utilize. No, it didn't take. He was good. He certainly wasn't good and his kicking. They believe in the lead up to the first Liverpool goal. But Allison had what I can only describe as a thoroughly disheartening performance. He was dreadful. There was so many times where he could he would have made unforced errors are some of them were forced. But whatever things you expect a top goalkeeper to deal with on. I was more concerned about him than I was thinking of lorries doing what he did you should have come up with the point it would have been acceptable. And you've got to moments in the game. You've got the Van Dyke header which could've put Liverpool ahead again. So it was a miscue when it ended up coming off was Bobby for me knows legs on Lewis grabbed it, and then you have Cecil Oklahoma. God. I should've been that. And it's amazing how the narrative will swing. You're coming out of that game. If the Reese does his business and catches the silo head imagining all those things happen afterwards. But if so close scores it's nine on the perfect way poor performance for spur. Now, look, ultimately, there's a reason why not only the soco not score goals. I can probably count on one hand the number of shots that I'd ever even seen him take like he he just he knows that. It's just not a thing that he's capable of doing. I he saw did not want that on a no he's he's he was looking for every reason to play that ball off to son who was kind of running alongside of them. And then well, I'll give give credit where credit is due on dyke Virgil Van Dyke as he's backtracking. He knows okay. Like now now is the time for me to pick the best of the bad options. And he's smart enough to recognize that, and he knows that son is next to him. And he knows I've got a player in front of me right now who either able take. Touch at the end of this and screw it up that way, which he which to so credit. He did not do or be was a guy. He took the ultimate heavy touch or be. It's a guy who just doesn't score goals like he just doesn't, and he doesn't shoot and shot and Van Dyke said, okay, you know, what I am going to cover son on this play. And I'm going to just give soco this wide angle to shoot at. And if he does it then so be it but Van Dyke played it perfectly and soco had, unfortunately, a Sasako of last year type moment. And I mean that was the one where I'm standing as that's developing. And while when that shot goes up, you just kind of fall to your knees. And you're just like, it's odorless deflating. It really was. And you know, I think that's part of like the bitterness of the Tottenham fan in this moment is because part of it is that like we've just been gifted this opportunity part of it is what you were talking about moments ago. This like this run that Spurs have been on. They're not playing poorly, but they're not winning games. Go back to the Manchester. United lost that they had one nil that like that's the game. We're Devon to head decides. Okay, today, I'm going to be the best goalkeeper in the world. And then I look across the field to Liverpool, and I see this club that just keeps getting some of it through their own hard work. I don't mean to take it away lots of it. But I think even the most ardent Liverpool fan would sit here and say that something is just transpiring the season where things are just breaking their way. So soco fires on a one hundred nine into rosette. And then we come back the other way, and Hugo lorries drops a ball and bundles it into his own centre-half who kicks it into the net. Like the Pickford moment earlier this season Sperone e the Crystal Palace. His moment against Liverpool where he knocks the ball backwards into his own goal. Three solid Rico like, I don't know. I don't know what it is. By are breaking your way. As part of the story as for every seem, you're absolutely right. That's that's the that's the point that people should focus in on all the title winning teams need dollops. Look remember we used to play that Bryant cloth drop where he was asked. Which would you prefer to win the European Cup or win the league in England? He goes all the the the English league you have to be a little bit silly. You have to be a little bit model, but daft you have to have dollops. A look all those things you absolutely do but Liverpool. Andrew don't stop playing. I can take you back to the teams in the past that were ranged current Rangers manager Stephen Girard was capped enough. And when things were going wrong Girard would try to get himself on the ball in every scenario possible and try either worldy Hollywood passes are trying drill went into the top corner instead of maintain temple maintain shape. Keep the ball keep working the angles. Get your fullback side Liverpool have not stopped that Saleh header was. Tame Laurie should have caught it. But what's being overlooked is the genius of that ball from Trenton Alexander Arnold. He's clip that and left it right on his head. How many times have we seen in the past? Where a across like that is over hit or ballooned he measured like Van Dyke against Everton earlier this season. He right. He measured that perfectly and left it right inside his head. Now, the rest was lorries. I mean, Toby out of a red was so confident that Greece would catch that he did not even try and slow up. And so he ended up running straight into the ball. Right. He did not expect that bowl to suddenly be out his out of and look I don't mean to I don't I'm not trying to imply that luck is a knock against Liverpool. But like nobody just helped us such. It's right. It has. But part of that is also because you know, and I could I'm sure if we really wanted to we could go back and parse through but the team that Liverpool are contending with Manchester City right now like I don't remember too many moments of just pure luck. And part of that part of the luck obviously ever what happened against Everton. Grows is one thing. But another thing that I talk about is like, okay. Let's even just look at the two games between Tottenham and Liverpool the season. Now, I'm not gonna cry about the first game because Liverpool were better over the balance of that game. But in stoppage time with Tottenham down by one goal. Son. Gets tripped in the box and no callers Nate. Okay. You know, let's look at Liverpool in their last game against Fulham. Like, they get that call and they get a penalty to win that game where they were were they were bad like so like things like that. Are just the calls are going Liverpool's. Wait, the bounces like the Pickford play the Sperone play the lorries plate. They're going Liverpool's ways. You are. Worn googling the sounds like his press conference. But like, you're you're you're no, you're not wrong. But that is the game. That is why we not for everyone though. Like not for Tottenham. That's the game. Nobody isn't can. I say it isn't you know, the way certainly in Judeo Christian religions, we have prophecies. So x y and z most happened to fulfill the prophecy rightful, I'm watching Spurs that. I'm watching the whole socal miss and I'm like, we're definitely going to win. And I'm wondering in lorries head is he soul to use that word inculcated in the Spurs religion that he go- he goes, I must fulfill the prophecy. And he drops that ball. It is a complete. I I have to find this tweet. Hold on here. This is from men in blazers Twitter account. Okay. Where they said, I get the feeling this game is going to be defined by a terrible pay those filled mistake. Bingo, like, you nailed just totally nailed it, and, you know, ancient tablet, prophesized this moment. It's true. A Frenchman can ice melt French men will emerge? I'm going to be super dramatic here and read a quote from one of my favorite, it's from the mini series band of brothers. But that's fine. And like it's one of those things as I'm watching the game yesterday. I'm just thinking about this in my head. It's one one. More. Lucas Moore has scored the equalizer and the games progressing, and I'm just watching like I'm not even enjoying the game. Now. 'cause I'm just like you said the ancient prophecy must come through Tottenham must find a way to lose this. And so the quote, the keeps running through my head remember in band of brothers to the cat the Lieutenant spears Ronald Speirs. Yes. So he has this line in the episode. That's all about dealing with fear. And he has this line where he says to this one private he says, the only hope you have is to accept the fact that you're already dead, the sooner you accept that the sooner you'll be able to function as a soldier supposed to function. And now, I know that like what I'm talking about pales in comparison to what he's talking about. But when I'm watching Tottenham, and it's one one, and I'm going through this unthinking my head. Okay. Dave scored like it's we're losing. Now. I just need to know I need to watch this game with that thought in my head that like they've already scored I don't care what's actually happening. But like once I know that we're gonna lose this game then I can function and just like kind of. I watch the game like normal person. I accept the things you cannot change just have the screensaver to your life be misery. And then you'll be surprised when things happen. Exactly. That's exactly right. Can I can I read you something from ROY Smith on defining moments in the season because he's talking about how the Pickford and Dolores mistakes will be framed. And he's he's going against that narrative, which is interesting and also kind of feeds little bit into my Liverpool Centric narrative about look it is a myth seasons. Are by definition definition collections of moments discerning, which one is the one on which everything hinged, which one is more important than all the others is an impossibility. She says that like, you know, there's so many things happen in including like module moments were great goals are scored that get washed away by you know, Pickford pulling the bowl from behind the crossbar and lorries deciding that he'd French existentialism and misery is more important than. Than catching the bolt. Right. What is it twice? Troot says in the office winners make their own luck. Billy, Zane Titanic. Which is I mean, I get what he says it's stuff is just like give me a break. I believe in Klopp. What cop says this is the championship of the will, which is a wonderful line. It's no it applies to I have no choice. I have to roll my eyes at that. I it. It's like a natural reaction the championship of the will. I think it applies though. Because man cities will is going to be tested as Liverpool's your. We're talking about Hugo Reese a little bit. And I was reading something on the BBC from Germain genus, and he is on Lewis haunt. He what he wants to run. He went on to say that this. He's he he takes no joy in saying it as a former Tottenham man himself, and Hugo Louise has been a really great servant servant to the club captain moments in his career when he was younger where he could have left when Tottenham were finishing fifth weren't qualified for champions league's Tim Sherwood. Is there like he could have left, and he chose always to stick it out. And he's seen the these. The rewards of that and he still relatively young. I think he's thirty two which by goalkeeper standards. He's not very sweet spot. He's coming off a summer where he was he kept into World Cup winning side for France. But Germain genus, basically says you can love them all you want for what he's meant to the club. But the results are the results, and he has become a liability for them. And he goes on to cite the fact that over the last three years only one keeper has had more errors lead directly to goals oddly enough that keeper is England's keeper Jordan Pickford. He has nine lorries now has eight it just feels like once a game. He's going to do something that that you're going to like yell at him. You're gonna scream at your TV. Now, not all of them lead to goals. But like it just it feels like it's happening way. More and more genus even says this Wednesday when Tottenham open their new stadium. It should be Gazan IGA in net. And not Hugo the argument I'd make for for Gaza. Negras guys Necas outstanding when he spent for Spurs really, really good. I would argue that Gazzaniga might be better with his feet than lorries is right now, which in the way with the way the game's evolving is kind of important to the stats are there. Andrew he his his leading to goals are it's hard to ignore by the way, even French fans will tell you that remember his error against Sweden yet. We're member they won. But in the World Cup final against Croatia. Still still have one. He's. I think it's important with him to do something. And I don't want to give him a lot of chewed because we talk about Spurs lot in this podcast. I don't wanna see him overly sympathetic because your sat across from me. But he's also had a lot of personal issues in this last year, huge personal issues on it's too simplistic to say that. Oh, well, you know, he's a professional goalkeeper what happened with the drink-driving ban. What happened in that moment, thou that will have nothing that won't impact his performances. You know, we things being arrested. You know, going to going to appear in front of a judge in a situation where he could have killed people Dirk will be post traumatic stress disorder in in any of those things there. I'm not a psychologist. But I think people have been pretty unfeeling in that that never gets mentioned. It's not broad open off. How off the field things haven't been great fair enough. Although a couple of things that I would say number one, I might agree with some of that if I felt. Like his issue. His hers performances were confined to the field. Just this year. I think this has been building for a couple of seasons and number two. There's something about him getting a DUI and then turning him into some kind of sympathetic figure because of that with me, I'm not trying to, but we're all human beings. I'm trying to talk about the impact that they have had on them, by the way, the knee. Andrew tells are going to come rushing into this and took on a they're going to tell me about, you know, Bobby for menial heads simple at similar conviction as well. We all got problems. Yeah. There's some truth to just you're right. He had he had an incident in his life. That was probably traumatic for him. But he was at fault in it. And like, he's not alone. A lot of people have have dealt with stuff that probably even worse than that. So I can't I don't know if I can give him a couple of guys I wanted to mention from this game the positives. Andy Robertson, it was sensational. I thought not even just the ball that he played into from you know, for the goal, but like. The havoc that he was wreaking down that side route the game even getting back into fence like he's tremendous attack. But he defends just as well. He defines man-of-the-match he defines a wingback position better than any player. We know right now in the game. He's really really good at it. Yeah. On Tottenham side. Even though the moments may have been few and far between the gold at Spurs scored. And maybe a couple of other moments as well. Go to show why hurricane is like he's just so the complete striker in this game in that. He's not just a great goal score is not just a great finisher. He's one of the more. Underrated passers. I think that we have in the league and the ball that he played in right off hours. I mean rights attributes foot like it was the presence of mind to do it quickly. Yeah. Now, Liverpool fans were howling howling two things made them. How like tell you one. Was that the ball was still rotating when he hit it? I'm not so sure that it that it wouldn't have stopped. Anyway, do you know what I mean? Like had he not at hit it it. Would it wasn't gonna stop the referees? Right there. You know, the referee can easily the referee was fine with that. And he's pinged it absolutely perfect. The second one is on a caused a little bit of a debate the phone call. Pont's potch was it's happened. Now in both of the game. You're not supposed to do that. I'm pretty sure you're not supposed to do that. You shouldn't be. Sense for that to be against the rules. Like, you're not supposed to be impacting the game. This is your punishment. Yeah. We were making jokes that maybe he was ordering the duck fried rice, I suppose that will be his defense. But he did that like both games. It's raising at big massive iphone on on the sideline fairplay to the director of the the TV director who picked it up. Yeah. I mean, it was pretty brazen. Yeah. I wonder like is that I wonder if that is actually against the rule. I don't think they extend his ban. I think communicate the idea of communicating in the game. Right. You're not. I I don't think that's a load. It's you're right. It shouldn't be but us doing it. It's like it's funny because he made he makes that call sun comes in and they score immediately. Like, he it did impact things. It's not Marino in the laundry basket going into the locker room when he was banned for chess dry or like Bobby Valentine coming back into the Mets dugout with the Groucho. Marx glasses that happened. Yeah. Unbelievable stuff. Yeah. I don't know, man. That's about all I have on this game. That's actually more than I thought I was gonna offer. I really thought I was going to sit here quietly and just say, okay here have fun with it. And if you talk to go inside caught a fight with this one your face when I saw you outside the door or the studio today. Yeah, I'm telling you not over this not I don't know what it was about that game. Like, really truly just like affected me. Come with you, by the way, people wanted me to romp in here. You know, like and bead joist dismissed JJ, you know, what I'm super smoke. And I haven't been that way. I'm quite proud, pardon my. So here's the only the only thing that like, well, I guess by and large. It is true that over over. The course of this show Liverpool have dominated Tottenham in the head to head but Spurs if you know, but like in those years you've had eighth place finishes like Liverpool have not been great. I you know, Tottenham had the the four nil against Liverpool. And I think typically you and I typically. Our our gracious with one another I think people don't want me to they want me to comb it. I swear to God get up on front. You crotch dance in your face, like dot dot kind of level. Look you won the game. If you wanna do that who am I to stop don't really want to? But just like we always say when when we see things like that happening games. Like when you know who was it for Chelsea that like pumped his fists in front of Marino's face. No that's bags apple because Marino is gone now. So Chelsea did get the last laugh, but like all gets remembered if people wanna do those things that's fine, but he's not gonna win every single time. So just be prepared for it to come back. It's going on the laminated list. It certainly does. There were other games that happened over the weekend. Yeah. I feel like it's a I feel like as a whole I've watched so much this weekend. It's a real motion. My brain all the things that happened yet. The only I guess the other one that's most fresh in my mind because it made me not almost as angry. But also made me furious was right before. Four Tottenham in Liverpool Chelsea card, if I was just like are you like I felt like Neil Warnock when he had his hand on his hips at the center, circle, which was staring daggers into the officials is in the license that I felt like he we were all living vicariously through him in that moment. I tweet. We're all Neil Warnock in that moment. Chelsea fans aside, obviously. Yeah. And he goes trying to you know, clap fans that into ground, but you know, the referee was still there. You know, see I took that as he was he was saying were booing without mercy as the officials stood there, which is their right? And and wore not walks out, and he starts like oriented. I thought he was applauding the fans for booing the official. I would believe offense were fantastic. Yeah. They wore needle, and you enjoyed orchestrating them against they've refs at the end. Absolutely. He looked he had every right to do that. When relegate we talked with Craig Burley last week. Hey, Craig, I asked Craig remember on that pocket. I asked him. What are you most intrigued by the title race top four race the relegation? I thought he was going to go right to the tunnel rates because it's Liverpool city, and it's been so compelling, and he said there's something about relegation. There's just something about relegation the and it's true, man. Like these calls that get made how what is that going to cost card if they wind up going down like this could be their their future club. You don't know if we look at the way things have gone at Swansea at Aston Villa? You're absolutely right. What's interesting to me though, as well as the enduring sense of. Injustice that Neil Warnock has joined his time in the primarily you go back two thousand and sixty thousand seven I believe so twelve years ago now when he was manager of Sheffield United, and it was Carlos Tavares gold for West Ham at Manchester. United at Old Trafford dot one nil that pretty much consigned Sheffield United to the drop where was the injustice there you say, well, a we soon subsequently found out that Carlos unhappy a mesh around at were not registered with West Ham. They were registered through Kidger option. The regent. It was totally illegal, and there was a whole court battle involving Sheffield United to try and get West Ham. Relegated. So we've come to this moment again and Warnock in his post match press conference was I know he's very much. Leave means leave Brexit tear, which well, whatever. No. But that's interesting that seems like, you know, proper football man point of view, but he was very modern about his use on VAR. I think he's. You know, it's. If anybody was in doubt before today, I think VR is got to be the answer and help them out because they need help. Don't they really would assaulted the goal out within seconds went to took more than ten seconds. So town when some of these, you know, as I've just said there, you know, we worked on things for the last three weeks and one of them's coming out to corner kicks and leaving a Mannan on the of just said, what do we do in our? What was the point? You've got to the linesmen said. So it's it's interesting what he says he does say that he wants fire, but he also says later on and kind of alludes to it there. It was such an obvious offsite. That the linesman should have seen it. Yeah. He's on about Willion, maybe blocking his view. I can't quite remember. I don't know what they're like, you text me instantly saying what a disgraceful decision that. Was it wasn't six inches? It was yard. And it's these moments to where like you really get the sense of what's at stake with not having VAR when this could like this could send a team into relegation. Also, it's kind of double barreled because you don't know what it means for teams qualifying for Champions League with Chelsea now being just a point back. Yeah. Of third and fourth. It was funny to what worn he said. He went on to say about his conversation with sorry. After the game. He was moaning about maybe throw in. A sincerity. Don't know. He's two yards. Upside should be putting him on the bike no complaint about throw in. He didn't realize we're off side. He he's great. He's in the seventy wants. He's had moments where I were he's one of my favorite guys in the league. I love him. I love to hate him. He's fantastic. He really is. He's a dying breed. I'm not saying I'm just saying the old school school manager. Like, he's he's a guy who's boy. It does hurt though from the clip before that you played where he talks about. How like that's a thing that we actually practice like, I can't even imagine. If you're if you're a manager, and like you practice this in practice this in practice, and then in the biggest moment of your season, potentially you break it out, and you do it to perfection and it works, and then it's the referees. Who screw you by getting it wrong on their end. Like, that's those are the things where it's like, you know, what I how can anyone blame a coach who just goes crazy on the sideline or after a game? I get it, man. I totally get it. His hands on the hip in the center circle just stare. Craig boston. We were all him. We were all him. I reminded me of once when I was in home economics on the teachers knock him behind me. And my buddy who would we were always given food on a Friday to to to cook things. And there was some kind of cookies involved in it, and we were just house and cookies and she's behind us and we turn around. There's like crumbs falling out of my mouth and there. She is hands on hips. Yeah. Jaguars free much new Lorna. Yeah. And it's a shame to for Cardiff because it almost felt like like you almost felt like Chelsea fans didn't even feel like they deserved it. They're booing. Sorry. All gain their Channing bleep. Sorry ball in in like Chelsea can't really be in a position to be taking any matches for granted let alone matches against teams battling relegation on their home ground. Like, that's a that's a a feisty opponent that you know, you're going to be facing who's in a corner battling for their lives. And he goes out. There doesn't start has our doesn't start in goal. Kante like, and look I'll give Chelsea fans are are so upset that he's not starting Callum Hudson. Doi I would tend to agree with that. Like, let's give this kid a shot. He's proving it whenever he gets the chance. But okay, I'll give you pass on on that one. Maybe if you're sorry. But like if has we're at a stage in the season now where you're fighting for top four in these games that mean so much like what are you saving him for now? Like, this is it he's probably leaving your club. All right. So like like what Joe Torry used to do for the Yankees bay? Oh, Scott Proctor he's thrown every day for the last like five weeks. Yeah. I don't care. It's the eighth inning. He pitches. The thinning the guy lost tours arm off basically because Tori, didn't care. I'm getting my use out of him that like that's where you gotta be with Eden hazard. Now, you're not saving them for anything anymore. He's got play. What are you doing? I absolutely agree. You're in the last year, we're winding down and hazards career. And Chelsea by benching him, this is wild. And then what he comes on such just like instant impact, the turn. From hazard at like midfield. And then he goes on that long run. I love watching him play. Honestly, I really do if there was any way to get him to come to Liverpool. He's a guy where sometimes you wonder, you know, certain players who go off to reality Dray Premier League. You're like, he's good. But it's gonna play has. I believe has we'll go to Real Madrid. And be awesome. I really think he's that good. I think so I think any where he went. He goes he'll be good. I really do. And he was I mean even in the World Cup. He just you just wanted to see him get on the ball. He was magical. Yep. Any other games from over the weekend that you wanted to give a quick shout out to grumblings doughnut the old London stadium whole Spurs. Andy, I watched Everton play. Well, but I also had to ask myself is this Everton playing well or is this West Ham being really quite bad at the back. I think it's a little bit of both. But if I'm in Everton finally enjoyed that performance. They looked together. And there was joined up thinking and what we're doing. Remember, we we've been saying about Everton probably since the derby game at Anfield on not sure what this team is or what they're trying to do. And I I even said, I don't know if they're not much better than their previous iteration under Kumon while this was more of joined up performance. And they they look good. Yeah. But in some ways, I almost feel like right now, it's hard. It's almost hard to judge anyone against West Ham with the way their defendant. I saw in their previous against Huddersfield. They win for three. But like you're giving up three goals to hunters field. Can I ask you something? How can a team be that bad on set pieces when it's one of the areas of the game where you can really break down on on work on like they were for the first school, Andrew Zuma, just like God's sake. Like it was shocking. Yeah. Absolutely shocking. Look pellegrini. Again, nobody ever looks comfortable in that west time managers job. And he certainly doesn't either on I suppose we should talk about all ebbing out the wheel of fulltime as he as they decided to notice that the day after we record the morning day after it was like I felt like it was like hours after we recorded last week. What how dare they? So so always at the wheel Manchester. United fans are ecstatic. Pundits are more circumspect our own Craig Burley's, not one hundred percent convinced we saw that on ESPN AFC and to us. Yes. We spoke with them. Right. But yeah, he's still expressing the same sentiment. Yeah. And you know, I can see his point of view on that one. Although they the Manchester United board were in a really tough position there. I think he was the only one that could really give the job to on. No. He goes from four hundred grand a year to seven million a year, which is incredible. He's he's done. I'm not going to change the way that I feel about this either. He's done everything right to get the job. But I still don't necessarily see why they felt the need to give it to him. Now. I I if if Manchester United I mean, look who would you who would you rather have I don't know if this is on the table. But would you rather soul shower or Pocchettino Pacino for me? Right. Well, Real Madrid has filled their vacancy with the Don. So like, Manchester United would really potentially be competing with no one. If they wanted him bad as surely, so no and Pocchettino has spurned big clubs before to to remain with his big club. But like if United wanted them bad enough and Tottenham in the season poorly, or whatever like who knows how things could have played out. You just don't know. I agree with you as well on them. Are they going to get director football they know to help promote because he's going to need us. Yeah. He it changes. No, it really does change. And this is this can't be short termism. You're not giving it totally ourselves share too. You know, just carry on doing what he's doing though. That's not what it's there for its to be better to buy players in and to build back towards being championship contenders. Again, that's a hold for domestically and in Europe. Yes. Suddenly, you're what United's brand is. Yes. Suddenly your job has gone from being caretaker of the mansion to living. And owning the mansion dot is. That's a big jump and one other thing that I wanted to mention to don't have much to sign up at Leicester City defeat born Muth. They've looked Leicester City quietly have been very good of late. And I think if I'm them priority. One has to be to keep your T Lamont's there on on Namen. It move short since he's come over. He's been so good and his distribution. Feels like he has has an assist every game. He's there right now on a temporary loan from Monaco. I picked they have to like, then weird lonely Monica. Yeah. But like it's worked so well for LeicesteR, and I really I feel like that's just something that they have to solidify. I agree with you. And that's the Brendan Rodgers effect. Yeah. Sure is I'll tell you what we're take a very quick break. When we come back. We do have we've been we've been teasing the mail bag for last week's such a back light. Oh, it's unbelievable. The bureaucracy to get through all this mailbox stuff. It's I I will have to hire an assistant. Wow. Can I just be that guy? We need an outside hire. That'd be outsource outsourced. We need to full transparency mailbag when we get back. The always told will he was too short to play basketball. But will never listen. We'll let his work ethic. Do the talking for him. Always in the gym always running drills will new where there was a will. There was a way and he was will. But then. After a second child was born. He realized the pros were all way better than him. So we'll gave up and buried his high tops in a tearful ceremony. But one day he heard that gyco could save money on car insurance. So he switched and saved a bunch, which was awesome. Back now on caught offside nail bag in just a sack. But again, I want to remind people that Louis miles director of Kaiser the greatest footballer never to play football is coming up shortly as well. It's a like we talked about at the start of the show fascinating. Look at a guy who conned his way into a football career. Pretty crazy kind of like me or down under ten. That's not fair. He was injured. It's not the same thing. JJ? Oh, he has scored goals of of huge repute. Yes. I stop bold JJ. Let's see mailbag. That's your soccer pot on Twitter caught up site pottage, Email dot com or check us out over on insta- where we're fire and on flake as the children's say caught off site. We did a little pole might as well give you the poll results who won the caught a site Cup. Rap battle sixty seven percent for little Gundy. A poultry thirty three percent for DJ JJ some of the. Comments just finish this podcast said Rita Rivas. Gundi surprises me loved his don't mess with me at the end. Lol Eddie chaplain gives us another flavor. I expected this to be a lot cringe air JJ was good. But Andrew snapped gotta save that carriers line and drop it in on the show people love our drops. Okay. So I think that should be a drop time to Rian re implement them. Yes. I think so maybe we'll grab some of the stuff on the wraps Darnley. This is an irritation Email, but I feel like I need to read. It y'all fellas please, please please red card hurricane Bruce Shona feels piece on ESPN dot com was good. It is very good. But we don't need to hear a bleep thing about Harry Kane talking about how he wants to play in the NFL pointless waste of time. You Sam bolt can't play pro soccer. Lebron James couldn't play NFL and hurricane ain't no bleep. And. NFL athlete. In fact, ninety nine percent of pro soccer players, ain't it takes a special breach. Play that game on my saying, he isn't a tough guy. Maybe but he just but just because he thinks he's a pro version of Tom Brady he doesn't doesn't mean he can take what happens in the NFL. No flopping allow buddy you get your teeth kicked in in practice. I played that own forgiving game. Hurricane needs to bend down and kiss the holy foosball. Every day can can I stop this yet? This is such nonsense. Is he not realize what it is that Harry Kane? He's he's he's not the only one that's tweeted out of sleeping Kerry. Kane what's the play like left tackle he's going to he's going? He's he's going to play white wide receiver to be the kicker. The kicker was that real or is that like a parody? No, no, no Darnell just got like a lot of people reds half read something so tarnish interpreted, and then blurt darnold a nice guy. He regularly darnold. Come on, man. He so he's reading that thinking that canes to replace grunk. A tight end. He's not he thinks he can cake. And you know, what he probably can. Yes. I probably could. I wouldn't. I I mean what he's done is a soccer player. She wanna want him to stop playing soccer. The the really good at that. But like. Nose tackle. I thought that was Joe Harold Kane. Wow. Mon- Darnall we love you alternatives. A great guy. But but he's not the only one to have done this read. Don't just get angry next one is okay question who was more angry heels Spurs the Andy or old grumpy Warnock that's from Antony s. I would say I would hope that grumpy wore knock he like he managed is at stake. I think he's done. All right. I think he'd be okay. Yeah. But like his job is this job is potentially at stake is team like relegated. Like, he should be really really mad on like an injustice like that. I don't want to go back to your share without mid. Dylan Hiti, he notes that in. I XE the war Simon Cooper addresses saying Holland instead of the Netherlands, oh, it's actually a Nolan the text. Strictly speaking the word. Holland only refers to two western provinces of the Netherlands in this book. I have often used it to me in the country as a whole I have yet to meet a Dutch person who would be offended by this. So it's something that they that is just accepted. It's just accept Holland and the Netherlands are synonymous, even though the literal definition is not one in the same. Correct. And I I mean, I've read ice the war. I've never seen that note. But I believe that it's there, and that's fine. That's fine. Let's can we check in with Amsterdam police and see what did. Hello there. We got the Stephane vendor. House Gluck of the police again, they didn't really have a thin commandant. No, no. However, they I meant to tell you you see who lost his job today. No. I think we we are not just what you call underdogs. Steve Steve's out a QBR. Oh, oh, no. Yeah. We have some keep your listeners, by the way. Well, I'm sure they have some thoughts. If they want to tweet them at CO soccer pod. Kevin cock sends an Email entitled kings of smug. No people have been waiting for this Email. Love the podcast. You guys a great. But you have now taken smog and hypocrisy to new Neville on your last pot. No, not our last part. It's two weeks ago blasting the bandwagon Lester fine, Andrew were you born in the north of London JJ were you born in never put you all would have room to talk. If you were Brighton are hundred feet fines, everyone, including you smoke jerks. Chooses their team because of that team having some success. Once you stick with the team for a while. You are no more of a bandwagon fan than everyone else. I think we did make that point though, I demand that you give the listener a sincere apology with love. Kevin. I will say this that is an incredible comeback to our smugness. Oh, yeah. I tip my cap to that. I can't I can only speak for myself. I can't speak for you. Yes. They're part of part of being a Tottenham fan for me. Is the fact that yeah, they were Premier League team. I didn't choose a side in the championship. And I chose a side that happens to be decent in my own defense. When I did become a Tottenham fan. They were certainly not the Tottenham that we know them to be today they've risen to that over the last several years and part of my reasoning in one and to be like lasagna gate had happened. And I felt like that is such a like I could see the eagles like the Philadelphia Eagles. Like, it was kind of a moment of epic failure that helped. Like propel me into wanting to support that club. But it's a fair point. They are a very well known side with a with a huge history with a history of success. So if he if I am to be viewed as a bandwagon fan because of that, then you know, what you're right. I'm not gonna fight him on that. And I apologize to the listener that we mocked for becoming Leicester City fan during the second half of their title. Yeah. When I when I started going to live fan the team to support was Manchester United at certainly wasn't Liverpool. Liverpool were on the down the the downward trajectory unmanned United to jerseys where everywhere it was prior to their first title win. So I don't know Matt silsbee I had to send an Email in response to the concussion red card. Well, done for raising the issue, I'm neurologist who plays amateur soccer with a local club. So this is something that's frequently on my mind. I'm astounded that the B didn't consider it. A big enough issue to even discuss. There was growing evidence. That repetitive. Compulsive injury has long-term consequences. I don't think there should be any uncertainty with this. If someone is assessed by Dr. To be concussed. They have to come off come off the shouldn't return to play until their symptoms have resolved, which might mean missing the next game. I think something like a free concussion. Substitute will be a great solution. I e doesn't count towards the three subs within the game. I am concerned that it's going to take some serious cultural change before that happens. The unfortunate that he will not sent that Email well over week ago in response to the incident and then on Saturday, it happened, again brand injury charity headway as demanded a you. If investigation after Newcastle defender fobbing shar played on for Switzerland against Georgia on Saturday despite being knocked unconscious in the first half down in Columbus who emailed us with his displeasure at our even mentioning poor tendons at Columbus Crew game sent us. Another Email almost nine hundred words long providing providing context as he said himself. So thanks for that, Dan. I gotta say even when our listeners are mad at us and like still adore them. There. The fact that he did they sent an Email. On the lean Val sin words, and like with links to podcasts. So you're gonna read it now. No, no. I did. I did I give it a read. He makes them points. But like, Don just does not believe in like. Current commentary seeing something talking about it. He I think he doesn't realize the new cycle works, by the way to follow up on that Columbus played defending champion Atlanta over the weekend. Columbus one nil the attendance at math free stadium ten thousand. Against the defending champ. Yeah. We're not talking about that though, we have to give it a full also without reading the whole thing. Can you provide me 'cause I mentioned when I when I said that about Columbus that part of it is has the ownership turnover not occurred yet and fans don't wanna give any Audi to Precourt. Because if that's the case, look, I. Okay. If you want to stand on that principle, I understand it. But to me like it's still doesn't look good for the players who are out there playing and like the enthusiasm that we that was supposed to be like, overcoming the club that you're gonna stay in Columbus. Now, let's get behind the team. I don't know is that really how all these people. They're staying away. It's all because they don't want to give Precourt money. Can't stop your trap from talking for two minutes down his already typing in you Email is that what he says, though, basically his thing is if I can remember it. I mean, there was so much in part of it was that the handover hasn't really crystallized yet. It's not one hundred percent. So the new ownership hasn't had a chance to make America on it. And there's a lot of legacy issues to deal with. That's okay. That's it in a nutshell. Well, when I'm curious when the hand over does occur, and hopefully there's an uptick in when it has. But they've got word it just it's not a full. It's not the cogs haven't fully turned yet. We need to give it more time. That's the Genesis of you respond to Dan. Or I I would like him. Honestly, I'm not being smug. Honestly, I would like him to keep us posted. Right. Yeah. Like be our fan correspondent for Columbus. In like, let us know. What is happening? Why like when is the the handover official, and can can you let us know in less than four hundred words, Colton Bailey, Goodwin hair. My message for me the back story of a partnership between Barcelona and I ex how do you guys feel about this seems to be mutually beneficial? Both slightly tilted in favour of our Sloan not slightly tilted. Do you think this sets a dangerous precedent would love to get some feedback? Well, this is from on this. The only have seen it the Spanish newspaper sport had this story. The Spanish giants CIX is the perfect place for their young players are recent recruits from South America to learn their trade before before breaking into their first team Barcelona would want in return first refusal on any of the best young talents are players at I XE. So basically, bashed on a confirm the guys that aren't getting a game at the new camp too. Rex but I- X half to give the first refusal on some of their open coming players. I don't like it at all. I don't believe in it. I know there is a lot of crossover between the two clubs from the UN Croix fear up from even with players like, you know. Let me think who started. I mean had so many players, you know, look at Mark Overmars who is currently director football that I actually paid up Barcelona antics, and there's the Croix think there's there's tons of players that have kind of forged this link. But that that to me it doesn't smell, right? This is not without precedent only about five or six years ago Tottenham and Real Madrid had one of these quote unquote, special relationships and then rail Madrid came in and bullied Tottenham for modric. And then did the same thing the very next year for Gareth bale, and then Tottenham promptly ended this special relationship in the partnership agreement. It said that the two clubs will be working together in respect of players coaching. Best practices commercial relationships. It was all nonsense. Tottenham got nothing out of it. And Real Madrid took to the best Tottenham players in the last thirty years. It was not it was a very one-sided related. Yeah. I don't like this the power is clearly rests in Barcelona on this one. I don't like it at all. Now. I also I want. See, I X P superpower. Again, the end can't they are right now. Why would you do that? Oh, superpower is like I that's probably a bit strong. But they're an excellent team. Yes. So why wouldn't you just wanna fostered? I keep going do not sign this, by the way, I have only seen it reported in one place. But it's been talked about in a lot of different areas of the media. And that is the mailbag. Well, there you go. That was good at CO soccer pot on Twitter caught offside potted gmaiLcom. What's the Instagram again caught off site ESPN at that one? I did the the last thing on the rap battle that. I wanted to mention was that I do people did go into it with like the ultimate in low expectations. I think a lot of people thought that it was going to be. So maybe so bad that it'd be good. Yeah. Not all that dissimilar for peo- back for more. But I I. Being totally honest. I think people were actually a little bit surprised that that we you. And I both actually put out like wraps that weren't total embarrassments, but we do listen to rock music. But that doesn't you know, I watched I watched football. Like, I know we have a basic idea of the core tenants Incorp release of route one of the things from the weekend watching so much Brexit stove.

He became not the man about soundly, he could go neat unity restaurants for free. He could appear on TV shows. He could stay his famous friends houses look off to that place. And he had a he had a nice locked up in Lehtonen life eight he he sort of had to go to work in other thing you liked very much. So he started telling the story of you know, how he he managed to comb people. So he started doing that about twenty ten very quickly when ever the resilient press. He appeared the biggest talk show in South America, and sort of had a a reversion ING of his life. And then when we came along is like right now, we can make this movie. So he he was really happy to tell us what? He wanted us to tell the chiefs identity, but look it was it was amazing. The thing that I'm most curious about. So like you say he was not any good, but he continued to wind up on some Brazil's bigger clubs. So I it seems hard for me to believe that this one guy did this on his own. I mean, we're there are other people kind of in on the con- with him. Yes. I mean, I think the point about this story and waving Danes vs week debuted at Trump ecological TI T, and we didn't love each of injuries since then everyone has the same question is like how how in wine surely people would know at night, we'll maybe people would help. But I think the thing is that he he founded in the to the football world and became friends was with genuinely really good friends with some of the biggest names in Brazilian football is his best friend is a guy called hidden. Also show he manages grandma, and they want the couple Lewis stories a company is ago. He he's ticked to become the next Brazilian national team. In also say some pretty big figure in football and these guys without shame because facedly you're talking about the eighties nineties where? Things a little bit more easy going. They didn't necessarily have the scouting that goes on these days will he he would come to a club ice test. You know, he was very fit. He would he would he would he would clear that and he'll do enough to get the Showtime contrast. And then once he was in the club. He would start to supply him with what they wanted. So whether that was not Sout when that was women without something a little bit more, shall we say legal. He would he would do that. And he would also take the plane for plays even clean up. He would he would just so everyone make sure everyone was alright. So that people wanted him around and then after a while he became the biggest sort of fixed in football. I guess really became it became everything. So a lot of these clubs in in in Rio the time where I think three out of the full major clubs are run by gangsta buses, and he was best friends with Oldman. So once you got the Chabanel side, he, you know, basically runs the country through their legal crime enterprise. He was kinda find you amid people would you know, after while people would coat on them to help out. I mean, he was Vesco the Gumma, and we sort of hinted it in the film, but we don't put it on Reiko because out of respect to the okay about but that was a Brazilian national team forward. He was suffering from alcoholism. They've to make sure he was alright. So he became an official Vesco play the United make sure that stall play play. Really, well, so this is a business. Will ever people's eyes EM? He he definitely he he definitely have people helping him for show Louis. He spoke off with such warmth. Boy, some of the superstars of Brazilian football. In the movie was that surprising to you considering the way of Brazilians treat football as this this. This almost wonderful of sacred the'real passion of theirs that somebody could come in with this kind of bluster on fake his way through such a lengthy career. Were you surprised that he wasn't treated with more? Disdain. So you say. So you can say, hey, the Matt thing is here, right? Is the is a lot of people did the interviews because had something on them. So. So. You know, we really struggled to get remorse. Right and eventually agreed. But then he got ego radio lungfuls needs. So we can do it. But that remorse as a Senator in the Brazilian government. And and the backdrop full this is the one of the political crisis races in Brazil. But the remark is one of the key boats on it. There's a. A newspaper law school that wins out. In the Brazilian press is outlet for people have it whenever looking at web remorse pull she is smashed up. And it says Romario went to a policy had a had a big night out. And he goes friend to draw and vote teams Davis, mash up ready, ready bad. But the know the go in the background of the patriots colleagues. And coys aecom, Troy's in a. Causing the causes blinded. One I can't become to it so causes there. For a reason why some everyone had something on on everyone. Whether it's good or bad, or whatever makes people was today with the lawyers. When they were twenty old United the younger days, and they did that was owning will they go up to. But that doesn't need say they when you get to interview them that they. I didn't have this won't few ROY. If you look at the causes turned up for you that interview, and that was supposed to be a twenty minute into Wintel three and a half hours of a bacteria was needed crime. When taught. He hadn't seen him for a couple of years. And he absolutely loves the man. And he associates it with some of the best times of his life. They love having him around. So he had stuff on they will. But he also I think he kind of was a bit of glue in the dressing room unite this guy that they they're the giant. They need is terrible. It is fine. It's kind of like easy going real love stone as he was the guard the pool the policy that they wanted around Louis miles director of Kaiser the greatest footballer never to play football. Joining us here on caught offside Louis. I was reading a little bit about it in the lead up to this interview. And I'm wondering if you could share maybe a couple of the examples or the methods that Kaiser would go to to avoid actually having to play football. Okay. So I mean, especially when we didn't necessarily put in the foam this, but it's not brilliant one way about it would used it will ways this is the day before mobile phones will really. Really a thing. You know, they're a big break things and call always used to say that he had contracts abroad news back home nine from twelve in the Jack seven FRANZ OB independence day in in Argentina. And he will he was used to having my bow fund that he's to speak to in these to speak foreign languages. They were out one night in a coupla Cabana with a guy. Quick noises knows emojis apartment. But now there was a one of the physiotherapists was out with him. And he was kind of speaking hall French off English on the phone, and he was in this guy played in England used to this doesn't sound ROY too. And he went out to him. He picked up the phone causing it always be easing this to like to have a compensation about new contract will cry some so diversion on just salting out this my contract situation ever in France or eating whatever maybe this was not now, and he was each these doesn't sound like English anyway, call eases picked up the coach fighting of colleagues, and it was a totally my ball five and hadn't hadn't been a it hadn't been a never had any any contract negotiations. So another one which is based heavily in in the film, and this won't be unite did a little research into is. He was playing for local Bengal in western rail bango will run by was run by. Gyco custodian draw J he was kind of the main mafia boss in Brazil in the eighties. You know, when he arrested hall for rail was on his payroll, including the president of Brazil, so really serious man taken Bangor from tiny tiny club in see being a penalty away from winning the visiting championship anyway concert bay net on enough and one night Castell wanted them toys to play in the game coming up the next day he'd been trying and beat on pay and he was like night causing needs to play like they tracked him down in the at a nightclub in Ray, I ordered him to come to the game against courage, even the next day. Call eases oversee saying, oh, look I'm injured he always used to fake injury. So he would always be safe safer faith, but then pluck the loss minute because there was no Maurois. They couldn't prove whether he'd had a muscle injury. Anyway, the coach says says that you have to go to the bench. He goes on the bench like to know down any thinks. Uh? This is really bad Castell gets on the Wilkie Tokyo old is GMs to pitch. So he's not always now the Monica so call us Stoute's will make up on the sidelines. And what happens is it causes story whereby the fans were abusing him. Whether they were knife inside. He just jumps over the fence installed. Thoughts a fight with the fatness himself sent off before coming onto the pitch. And then. Therefore, he doesn't have to shut the econ- play football. We doesn't have to expose these come off to the gang custody. Enjoy Jay comes down. Everyone's overdue very scared of in. 'cause you know, like, this is serious stuff. Mafia, don't want across these guys. You know what happens right? 'cause it takes it one step further he thinks on his fate and just says the custodial you'll my father got taken away my father and you'll look at second father two million. You know, just before outside bridges responds with saying that you kill this person that your your drug baron. I couldn't couldn't take that you know, other. What could change his prey on maycom criticize you in your own stadiums. So head to defend your owner than Casto loved it in extended his contract rather than seconds. It was even always think about it. It's radius. Like catch me if the economy is a bit like. Character names. Frog capping now janea. You know, he would be Radi. Simple comes on on the date made. You think that guy over situation UN's and people went for it, you know, and and they left it Louis before we let you go. What is what is Kaiser doing know? What does a bay fake retired player do with his time? And and what state is his life in sight coys. A now, I mean for man, he I mean, a lot of this was, you know, takes place in an a holiday section always Rio de Janeiro, the IT's non geez, it's laws very free over there. Especially in those tons, and and you know, he's just tell of women in the he had a little girlfriends in I so it's any app that he's now a personal trainer that only trains female bodybuilders. So it's kind of state today. He's had a second license. I mean, the, you know, we were we're in independent film where we decided we launched loss year, we had loads oppress around it, and you know, what he sees? He's back in Brazilian save as he had an hour special on folks pool in in Brazil the other day. Yeah. He's back on the this is a guy that, you know, even during his prime hit appear as a an Ana analyst or pundit on football football highlights programme of highlights programs giving instructions about how plays could do better with how they score a goal. So he's any confi football's during that he's back being he's paying a legend the foot will that appears on the same shows as you run out. Ronald Ronald Genia Zico. So it kinda crazy ready last one, I guess for listeners to our podcast where is this? Able to be seen here in the US. Yes. So we're now in the US we're on Amazon prime if he such out causa the greatest hoopla never play football. It's there a hubby reading joy, it's been a a an absolute Emad. So the three need to get it together. Look at a different football story in a guy sits it's not like a documentary where you look at it and you go while ago. This amazing all it's it's real Khanna storytelling in look, it's kind of one of the most unbelievable stories that become across which is what we made this film. So that was in prime available. Now, it certainly is. I can I can highly recommend it. Thanks very much for your time. Louis. Our thanks there to Louis miles with a cool feature. That sounds like it's gonna be. Yeah. He sent me a screener a few months ago, absolutely brilliant. So good and one of those rare football stories the one thing that I just like can't get over. So let's say for what like if I wound up I can't play soccer if I let I wound up on a team though, tomorrow and through whatever different events like I wound up having to go in like, oh, my God you book. But like, here's the thing. If you want to soccer is one of those sports where you can hide like it. You definitely baseball. You can't hide like if a ball gets hit to you. You have no choice like if when you're up at bat, it's you versus the pitcher in soccer like you can stay near defender if you want so like you can't. So, you know, you're not gonna really get the ball. And if you do in a defender takes it right off, you make sense. Like, there's just stuff like you could hide like in basketball. If you really want to you can kinda stand in the Thursday. Look, andrew. There's a look like this guy presumably has played enough soccer that like when he went on these trials he could get by. Yes. So you're saying he couldn't even good on the field and hide a little bit and go off of like, whatever minimal ability. He might have had like he had to resort to jumping into the stands and fighting a fan that may have not even said anything to him at all. That was a better option. There is a look a player highs especially and it's not just coming into a game in the park is coming into the highest level of Brazilian football. And you knew the way they look the first torch is just right. Even the way they wrong. I get it. He would suck. There's no question about this grit BBC documentary a have to dig it out. I can never find it. It's from around two thousand for an Italian an actual like conman this guy made up fake letters that he was on trial at Sheffield Wednesday and Rangers he ended up in the Irish the Northern Irish league out a couple of different clubs in Coleraine was one of them on the ended up at a couple of different Welsh League clubs he defrauded these people of of thousands these clubs. Thousands. And they used to say the minute. He come on the field. They'd know in training. What's this guy? But he had this talion name. And it was really Google was only just beginning to emerge and the dude Jillette diligence was not done who's Sam Weller Dietschy. But this guy was a serious conman on but the the pros even at that level Irish league level, they could see. Yeah. This guy's Chuck. Yeah. Well, there you go thanks to Louis miles. And our thanks to all of you for tuning in today and listening to caught off side we're going to be back mid week. Whether it's Wednesday or Thursday, I think is still TD, but we will have a podcast for you. Because there is a lot of mid week action.

Caught Offside: Champions League Semi-Final MADNESS!!!

"Caught offside with Andrew gumming and JJ Davani. Side of Manhattan, Andrew gumming, and j j Batty, what's. Oh, yeah. Spurs are on their way to Madrid taught them's got it too. Happening. What's going on? This is actually happening five years ago. When we started this podcast, right? Let's get. That's where were we I. So I actually right before our first ever episode. I had just returned from a trip to London where I went to White Hart Lane. It was the Tim Sherwood year. Like, that's where they were Liverpool. What were you eighth? No, no, no, no the year. We started was the year of Liverpool's title race. Oh, that's right. That's Ross like within within a few months. Suarez. It gone Bonna Telia been signed and Rickie Lambert on it was just a a pretty miserable slalom under Brennan Rodgers until we ended up. Here's a better one so four years ago. Twenty fifteen the pod wasn't was approaching its first year anniversary, you Spurs be knocked out of the round of thirty two. Two of the rope league to fiorentina at the Sada moment, and we got knocked out to shift. His like the soccer gods. Have given us a five year anniversary present that we never could have possibly imagined? This is think oh turgid Spurs were in the group stage. Oh, look think of that night in Zagreb when Liverpool. Sorry Belgrade excuse me, where Liverpool lost until we thought. While there. They'll have to focus on the league. Now, you know, like just oh my God. Did we get here? I don't know a caught offside Cup for the Champions League. If a if this happened in like a Europa league quarterfinal, we would have been like this Liverpool and Todd this is a big deal. We gotta make this is for all of Europe someone that by the way, your tweets have been unbelievable I've been dated it's impossible to like our reply to all of them. But somebody said this is for all the marble. Bills. I just like. I just couldn't stop laughing all say that. We'll talk about both games in great detail and just a few moments. But there's just like this is just sports emotion in like all its glory. These games were just it was just every part of you know, every feeling that human being can feel encapsulated in ninety minutes windows. It's it's high intensity a motion that the likes of which we haven't seen best be honest in this competition in the last few years that has swung around on. We're starting to see more regularly some of those Real Madrid at Madrid finals were truly riveting. We they were riveted, but they weren't like day. There was just an unexpected nature to the way these games played out that adds an element. That is just I think the fact that once upon a is Jonathan Wilson tweeted, I remember time when three gold lead mattered going into second leg. And those those are. You know, what I was going to say it still does matter. I mean more often than not even today when you have three goal lead. You do advance. Just remember the ones where you Hello going one goal behind and making it into a three goal lead and having to climbed that mountain within an hour of football a couple of housekeeping things before we get into the games. Like we've been saying for the last couple of weeks five stars for five years five year anniversary go on our our I tunes. Give us a five star review and in your five star review. If you have a favorite moment from the five year run of the podcast put it in there. And then starting next week. We're going to start combing through and then at the ends of podcasts will will shout out who the person was that one of the moment and will throw it in there as kind of like the final scene of each podcast. So please keep doing that. We've gotten a lot of responses already in their great. It's fun actually reading them. And just like remembering a lot of those moments from over the years. Also, I gotta say this please now more than ever subscribed to our. Pacific caught off-side podcast feed. We it said that if enough people start subscribing them will put in specific content just in that feed not in the ESPN FC feed where a lot of people get access to our show. Well, we have already acted on that promise because lo and behold Liverpool goalkeeping legend Bruce Grobbelaar was in-studio with us today to talk about yesterday's incredible Liverpool game his incredible career his incredible life story. It's thirty minutes. And it's it's great stuff. So Liverpool fans and non Liverpool fans. Like go into the caught offside podcast channel on apple podcasts. However, you get your podcasts, we have our own feed find it and you'll find that that is exclusive contents of that you won't find it on the ESPN FC feet, and you won't find a goalkeeper that's gone from the Rhodesian civil war to Anfield. What you will? You'll find one he talks about all of it, which I mean, it's incredible any talks in depth about how he. Sumed yesterday's Liverpool game Ling's, and why nights at onfield are so special told him I flat out said to him that I hear people say it, and I roll my eyes. I thought he was going to come across the computer at you and quiet. There was should I have said the man is crazy. Yeah. He's he's he's such a crazy guy with a with a crazy story. But he was great. He was in promoting the Western Union Cup 'cause Liverpool or going to come into the US the summer. I mean that ticket just became as if it wasn't already going to be a hot ticket going to this JJ, shall we shall we do this, shall we shall we talk about the thing that I never thought we would be talking about. And that is a Liverpool Tottenham Champions League final coming up. Right. Let's begin with Spurs in. I'm stir down. Necas? Lucasville. Mike. God in heaven. Guy Mowbray on the call. Who was who's been? He's great. But he has been sensational this competition. He was on the Tottenham city calls. He was on. I think both legs of this. He's. Wow. Listen credible. He would tell you that the drama presented itself. And he just called it on what drama what a second half. I'm possibly one of the greatest individual performances we've ever seen inside a forty five minutes of football at this level. By Lucas Maura which we'll talk about on a sec. But I do wanna start in the first half because you know. I mentioned the quote the other day for Mussa soco who had said, we know. I xe. We know what they're going to do. They're not going to sit back. They're gonna play their game. And in some respects that is a tip of the cap to. I axe that they believe so staunchly in their way of doing things and it has worked for them. And it worked for them today. Sokaia was right. They did come out. And I mean, the first ten minutes was it was dominant. I mean, it was really frightening watching how how that was just spiraling. So quickly for Tottenham. I XE jumped out to the quick lead as has been kind of Tottenham M O as of late and you felt like this was going to go bad quickly. And then I give Spurs credit because they gathered themselves. I think they understood that one nil didn't really matter. They're always gonna need to goals or look, obviously, it would have been nice for that goal to not happened. And one nil for Spurs could have been on in play to get its extra time, but they pretty much always. Do we need to anyway? So let's not lose ourselves here. And in fairness to them. They did rebound, and they probably could have had three goals in that first half. And you start seeing you know, I I said that son was getting a goal while we certainly had his chances, but a weak attempt on net. I it just it just wasn't quite clicking for them. You know, son put one off the post, and you see it gets a Lucas more. And he just can't quite get his leg around quick enough. And I'm thinking this is the difference right now. I'm watching Liverpool yesterday and Jordan Henderson's first goal. You know, Liverpool needed to score early Henderson puts one on and the bounce happens to go right to a reggae for Spurs. It just doesn't quite fall at Morris feet on the rebound. Like, those you start thinking about those little things and saying these are the things that need to go your way to get the win. And in the first half for Tottenham. They were certainly not going Spurs way. What was going in true Champions League? Style was the bizarre start the FOSS start by IX where you had a goal very very quickly. I like you said it didn't really change. The task at hand for Spurs. But what it did say was I XE mean business again and Spurs are in trouble here. Trippy failing to pick up licked that whole kind of that move there. I mean that was on conscionable what trip you had. And then later in the half for him to overcommit and be able to position to get to lose possession of the ball on for Todd. It's to get down the line to square to desire shoe finish brilliantly. Honestly when the net rocket with that, what was your thoughts? Oh my God. It's only I I didn't text you. But because I've been texting with another buddy of mine who was pretty hardcore rootin- for Spurs in and my friend Jordan, and I just I just texted him straight out of said game over a hotel you right? That was it for me when that happened. I do wanna go back to the first goal, though, the delectable 'cause at halftime on TNT. They were talking about that wasn't a foul or not right because well, look, here's the thing. I mean, I'm not surprised that it wasn't called. But. Look for tongue is clearly picked off of he were blaming trippy. But maybe the plan is for him to let delivered go and for tongs to pass him on yet. But over Tong and can't do that. Because he's who was it. For exit was blocking them off. It went to peak vanderbeek. Yeah. I mean, it seemed quite clear, I wasn't know. It was one of those where I wasn't gonna throw a temper tantrum at halftime when I saw it. But I do wonder if maybe trippy is taking a little too much flack because the plan was for tongue into eventually pick him up, and that was bad as that was definitely look at it as a mismatch and think even trivia goes with him is he going to be able to stop him. My biggest problem was there was a moment. Twenty one minutes on someone tweeted in response to what I'm about to say, whoa positions. Fifty fifty where I XE just dominated possession pass the ball Ronin in these triangles. I'm were quoting Spurs open on Spurs. Couldn't get the ball. All on as Jonathan Lou alluded to in his his match report, which he's done to tremendous match reports on the whistle over the last two days in the work going back and reading, but he said he made a midfield of Spurs. That is not slow old. Look, slow and old. And I just thought what happened in the first leg? Second second half won't happen. Again, can read you something. So this is a guy who I felt you on the run who came up short. I know I'm jumping ahead here. But I wanna talk about I XE hair this from Reuters on the their manager ten hack said this after the first leg, the is the is the quote our minds or a bit too much undefended the lead ten Hayek said, but it was also a show of strength by Spurs at showed. We have to cross another frontier tomorrow, we are confident we can do it. We are fit, and we are eager now for me, that's recognition which also made his post-match comments of them sitting back in the second half and allowing Spurs to build up momentum one. Once that happened. They couldn't take it back. They couldn't stem the tide. It's like having your finger in in in in in a damn once you take it out on the floor starts building. In the pressure starts behind the wall, the cracks appear, and it's over a coordinate believe that I would play that way. Again. There was a moment in the first half. Where happens I was enjoying himself so much that he pressed the spars fullback droopy trip as a back to lorries, he sprints note. This is this is like roadrunner stuff. He sprints any goes in on lorries the repays the ball out to the halfway line of the fire site on. It's picked up by saw a can't remember who it was a midfielder on sprints all the way round to press him. I'm like, you're going to be absolutely gassed, what are you doing? Well, they were running on a Drennan if it was total abandoned. It was chaos football on. I say chaos. It was organized, chaos grit. Triangles moving Spurs out of the way. But. To name not to our to complete seem to forget how to do that in the second half unfold back toward your inbox. You're you're eighteen yard line your own box as unconscionable. I counted understand it one of the things that surprised me most about this match which kind of speaks a little bit to what you're saying right now in watching that first half, and maybe I got sucked into watching. I x play that way with that much energy. And from having watched Tottenham over the last month, even against Manchester City, which in in the Champions League, which turned into one of the greatest triumphs. But that second leg, it's kind of a miracle. The Tottenham got through being disallowed at the end on kind of fluky bounce off Christian Erickson, I've watched Hutton lately. And they just look done. They just looked worn out whether that be through injury whether that be just through a long season in a number of all those things I'm watching the first half. And especially after the goal goes. In. I just think they just it's not for lack of effort. They just don't have it any. They have hit the wall. And I think Tottenham fans have been conditioned to feel that way. Because it's how the last few seasons have ended for Spurs title challenges that petered out. We've seen this from them. And so I think you you've seen it before you're watching this in front of you right now. And you just believe they can they just can't go any further and you want to applaud the effort and then the second half happens and like. What what what it Lucas more a take at halftime? I mean, we'll hang on a second, though, if you wanna pick a consistent thread throat, these two games for Spurs a piece of hope from that forward line, which was bereft of ideas at times, it was Lucas Mora in that first half even against I XE Andrew when in the first leg when he drove and got on the ball. And drove at that defense. They did not like it. He was immense over both legs over one hundred eighty minutes. His speed that he showed really on everything he does. And he has no like he has no other gear. He is always full speed all the time. And I give them all the credit in the world for that. But like the afterburners that he turned on to get to the first to get the delis ball on the first goal to threat through two defenders and still have the composure to finish at the end of it amazing dot com as I can I say something as well. Can I add daily into the mix there the way on his passes for when he was involved with the more goals, and he fed son? In the first half. And when sun kind of had a meek effort on net deli. Allie was sensational to probably should've had a goal himself. If not for an incredible safe from ONA on the on that volley from Delhi alley dot close one. That was well known Spurs didn't score that I thought it was still too. You're right. It's another one of those moments. I mean, I'm watching the game while work, and that was I feel bad for the guy who I work with who kind of sits in front of me. You can't see me. And so, you know, he's going about his doing his job or whatever. And then every once in a while he must have been terrified because he would just get like these bangs at infill wear, and like sudden like yelling and cursing for me and just like then taught him start scoring and sudden screams. It must have just been like what is going on behind me. Now, he was invested to sure he got seems like the whole country was. And then the second goal for Tottenham to get it to to to you know, again like like with Delhi moment shortly before that for an Endo your intake had he not had he not score. But this miscommunication between own Ana and the defender Shona and Shawna. Like these little moments in the ball squeaks free and Lucas Moore. Who dribbles between defenders get space whips one around on the goal. I'm afraid in the replays that we'll see in the future. It will all be the winning goal. And quite rightly because that was that was the pinnacle moment for Spurs in the game. But his feet in the box to dig out something to leather at home between a felt like it went between someone's legs are like the brain is fried. There was a gap there, and he found it was just unbelievable. And then you're thinking this is so on well, then yes now the world is reinvested in a game that it had kind of given up on. And there's always that voice in the back of my head. It's spurs. It's spurt like this is what they do. I said to you before we started recording that there was a point when we got to the eighty seventh minute on the corner kick and the ball falls too for Tongan former I XE player bloodied. Face in the previous match able to go in the second leg chance to be a hero been with the club forever. It feels like literally amassed avenger. Yeah. And if falls to him in that moment to be the hero. No one near him six yards out and heads it off the bar comes right back to them. Second attempt. Put on net cleared off the line. And that's the you drop your head in your hands moment. And you think it's Spurs you knew that they were gonna suck you back in. And you just knew that. There was going to be that moment where you thought you had at one like against the event is in the Champions League last year when it fell off the post in stoppage time like and this was that moment, and the fact that. Like while the while fans around the world might have put their head in their hands. They never did. They never did. And once again long ball in the ninety fifth Moro. Okay. Okay. Let's back up there sparky right before that. There was a beautiful. I won't vindication for a man. Who's being highly criticized the Spurs goalkeeper Zayat again has the chance to finish it. It's over on Ugo Reese, pulls off one of the most important is probably the most important save in the history of Tottenham Hotspur football shop the most I'm happy to say that because that goes in. You've done. It's over. And then it's a long bowl lumped towards your enter another man who is. I I don't know. I don't know how some players on this team will be viewed in the future, but he's written his name into Spurs. They're all gods now. Right. And he flicks that on perfectly into delis path on what's required. There is just ice in your veins, a cool nece and he slides a perfect bowl into Lucas Mora. And what's even more amazing as we see in the replay? There's two feet there. Two defenders. They're ready. Andrew nine times out of ten that's blocked that stopped. He doesn't hit it particularly. Well, but he hits it right in the corner, pasta, Nana side-netting and histories written. Terms to Lucas. Two. To the jerk. Make them I ring tone. I think I think the gift we should all share for the coming month is Tino on the grass the man of five hundred dollar who Bossuyt just in tears, a hit the emotion from him was maybe what was most jarring of the whole scene at the end of the because that's not really who. He is. He's and I won't say that he's he's not stoic. I don't know that that's the right word. But there is this kind of way about him that he's just always kind of measured. Yeah. You know, even when things are choppy there, and you know, he'll say things that maybe you don't always want to hear him say, but his general way about him is is fairly even keeled. He doesn't even get. I mean, it doesn't get as ready as your Klopp gets on a regular basis. You know, he's I dunno. He's stoic isn't a bad word. I don't know. Why you don't like it? Because he 'cause he's not like a dull. Oh, man. I I don't want to give off that know that feeling of him. But just to see him this outpouring of emotion from him. And you understand why? Because these last few years for Tottenham have been wall. Great. There's been this kind of like tinge of disappointment that has an era of overshadowed a lot of this era, an air of sadness. Yeah. And he jobs on finished. Right. And he's had to kind of live with that the stadium situations. You know, the inactivity in the transfer market. He earlier this year at the center of the Manchester United managerial rumors he's dealt with, you know, decent amount while he's been at this club. And I think this was just kind of even though they haven't won a trophy here. It just felt like this moment was a culmination of like, a validation basically of this entire era for Tottenham under eighteen I think he's he's been fighting within the club in without you know, he's fighting other teams on on a daily basis trying to keep Spurs in that Oprah action on while a new stadium Gozo Poile. He has no money spent on transfers, and there was a real sense of like the only one the only incoming player to Tottenham Hotspur score. The hattrick in eighteen months. You know, there is certain there's something there. It's crazy when you think about Lucas Mora scoring this hatrick becomes just the fifth player in Champions League history to register a hat trick in a semi final or final which you like to give shot at the others. Shoop aegis power on gummy Rinaldo in two thousand seventeen for Ramat in the semi's eleven doffs key when he was at Dortmund in the semi finals in two thousand thirteen she's learned four of each of which for buyer Munich in two thousand in the semi final. And then Alexandra Del Piero for events in the ninety eight semi final and Lucas Maura. I mean when your name is written up there with Pierrel pretty special Rinaldo Levin Dossena help gyro Mora. Now, look he he was already kind of etching his name into Tottenham Laura when he scored the goal against Barcelona at the camp now in the final group stage game now gets on though. Well, not on maybe not on more like an international basis, but among the Tottenham faithful I think that was a moment that would never be for. This is not a first name on the team sheet kinda guy. He's a he may Harry canes. Becky may not even start the final. I I don't want to jump ahead time. We have time. But I will say there's beware. The DA go cost syndrome from twenty fourteen the talismanic center forward who is not one hundred percent fit on new stardom and take him off much better to bring him on with fifteen left than it is to start him and take him off. Then honestly with the fluidity and the way that from three complete together. I'm not changing a whole lot. If he's healthy. How like how do you not start him if but you're right? If he's healthy, we'll have to wait and see. Should talk about I exited the bit. I've I've I've something here at you. You ask what happens next for the losing team? And I jumped on that because I saw a line again from Jonathan lose match report that sums things up. It's a little bit grim. I XE dominated large sections of the hundred minute the hundred eighty minutes of this tight and against the about is flawed aside as you can realistically expect to face at this site of the competition looked good value for their first Champions League final and more than two decades. But the closer got the harder they seem to grasp at it. In defense. They dropped deeper trying to thwart Tottenham. But instead offering only encouragement in attack chances came and went agonisingly, agonizingly begging. It will take them months years to get over this perhaps they never will. Well, they won't because as a collective they'll never play again to get together. I do notice what he saw. There was this gaping hole on Tagliavini Tagliaferro daily blend side that opened up Spurs just drove into it so regularly. I'm like, where's their fullback? Where did they they played on one side? Like they were down to ten men in that second half at times. There is a sadness about this. Because in the modern game a team that, you know, the bottom side in the Premier League will take in more money than the champions of the DOJ air Davinci, you know, in a time where your break in your kind of regular transfer rules to bring into do Santana JR. That was seemed like something of an extravagance to them. And that was thirteen million in this time. It does feel like something that's sore Ganic put together and that it's failed at this point. It does really it. It's jarring. I'm not saying that they're not a great club. But what they've done here is a little bit like catching lightning in a bottle. And now you're gonna have to ask them to do it again. It just seem you're right. It seems there is a sadness to it. 'cause we thought for one moment we thought, and I still believe on we'll talk next week when I get a chance. Out about teams like taffy and on the champ is, but we still believe in the LeicesteR cities. And we still believe in teams the Rosenbergs teams that can come into this and compete, but. It it does. It's it's jarring fair or not I can't help but continuously compare them to Monaco from a few years ago who reached Champions League semi final and didn't advance. And look the state of Monaco. Now will I XE go the same route? I don't I have no idea, and it may not be a fair comparison. But I I just can't help. But look at that as the model for kind of a club of that stature, I know I is more of a global brand in his head. You know, a great history of European success? But where they're at now. Yeah, you're right. It's going to be very difficult for them. Like, you said, we know diong is gone to Barcelona delivered his most likely headed somewhere how they keep. I mean, they're narrows who didn't play tonight as being linked with nearly with Liverpool. Liverpool Spurs on Chelsea, although Chelsea have Haddon pretty well transfer ban was held of so tough. That's not good for them. Yes. Zayakin? Will he I mean pick a name quite other than maybe daily blend? Or I would imagine could you see tach making another move. No. I don't think. I think so this has been such a rip roaring success to go from Southampton and the struggles of the bottom of the primarily to the Champions League semi final. He will be he will be Harding tonight. They all will. And I think, you know, there's a lot of characters they're Edwin vendors czar, Mark Overmars on even the manager who who have endeared themselves to people on this run that they, you know, there seemed to be building the club the right way, and it sat and I don't want to make the sound funeral for I XE because unlike Monaco, it would be nothing short of shocking for I XE to at least not remain at or near the top of their domestic league for the next decade twenty years thirty or four forever. So you know, whereas Monaco had this plummet through league. I don't see that happening with X. So their Champions League days are far from over. They will continue to compete in this competition. They will continue to get out of group stages, and there are still great days ahead for them. But this was a team that could have won a European Cup. And that's not. Going to be an easy feat for them to repeat moving forward. There's no question about that. But it is taught them go through before we get out. I did want to play for you Lucas Mora after the game because he is now the deity now there's going to be a statue of him outside of the new White Hart Lane at some point be statue of him in your front guy. I can't wait for when you gently what's on your nightstand. Is it a picture of your child a picture of your wife lamp and a clock? All right is there. I mean, I pictures all over the house but not on my nightstand. There is going to be a picture of your wife replaced at some point with Lucas yet here he was after the game on the win. I always believed that it was possible to come here to win to go. To the final. And we fight we fight. That's what we need to put our intensity in the second half was was amazing and ever run. We did really well Hansel engine joy this moment symposium, which is playing. I still don't even don't even really know what happened today. Tottenham are in. All right. We're gonna go ahead. We'll take a very quick break. When we come back on the other side. It's your turn my friend, Paul in one of the I mean, these are really to how you rank these in terms of like on the drama scale. It's just been back to back days of the greatest soccer that you could hope to witness, please don't go anywhere more coming right up. This driving on the go reggae. Chakarit? Incredible. What? Quickly. Two. Take this. It's paul. Mother of God. When did you think when did you think that it could happen? Can can I can I say something can I admit something? Oh, no. You didn't believe before? I kept it kind of quiet because you know, sometimes there's nothing worse than than believing too hard and believing in fairy tales but early on in the game Shaquir, he pulled one a shot across the gold before Aridjis I school. I'm like, they they look rattled. What are you doing that? They defending the reaction of their centrebacks the looks on their faces what it's that easy to get at them tonight. And I thought okay. But when I really felt it was the double punch and the double punch was when Allen goal followed by the Alan goal. You it reminded me of. And again, I always. Go back to it of what we did last season. I know it was later in the game. But the rapid fire goals pep said about the league game where we beat Manchester City when it gets to one, okay, we must not panic. This is okay, we must. We must become buyers were anything can the minute that second goal goes in their panic it, they're absolutely panicking. What you gotta do button down the hatches. Make sure there's not a third the third inside two minutes. I know I'm my head explode. I was this is on they've they're bottling it right in front of our eyes. They are bottling it go at them co for the job dealer. But I never taught never thought that the third goal would are the winning gore. Sorry the fourth goal to the goal to take us to to the Champions League final. I was looking at extra time. I was looking at penalties. I never thought they were concede off. Corner in the fashion that they did. Well, you didn't think a twenty year old kid with think to do a quick corner with the tire Barcelona team just asleep on the field? That's not a normal way for Champions League to end. Can I tell you first of all I want you to play the BBC radio five live audio which is one of the great calls in Dennis on Alan Shearer, drink this in east on the east blocking in. Peaches. You'll repeat. European. Trend. Which is go to sleep. He lives in this new. That's what route. Own believable. And it was a look like a look across the dance floor. He was leaving that for Shakira. And as he walks out. He catches he's on. He sees them. Arguing now Simon Hughes in the independent roared. How Liverpool's video analysts had noticed that Barcelona argue a lot on free kicks Carnac, stay complained. They moan, no. It was unbelievable that finally this kind of the kind of nonsense that we hit from these teams, the the griping and the moaning a caught them out the goalkeeper tear steak and was looking down the field. And the the defenders were I mean, they were in some kind of conclave. The other thing is I don't want to overstate his he's a professional football. I'm aware of that Trent Alexander Arnold to go back and whip the ball from the angle that he did with the accuracy that he did for latte to land right in front of a reggae. That is so hired to do nine times out of ten you're training to quickly, and you shank it. It's a moment of clarity. It's a moment of vision of total perfection from the kid. I went absolutely not actually tell ally. I couldn't really understand what I see. I was waiting for VAR. I was waiting for you took that too quickly. I was waiting for just some kind of stoppage to explain the complacency of back Celona. Incredible. It's funny because you know, so much of the game. We talk about you know, tactics and match ups and things like this. And sometimes it just comes down to nothing more than a great, footballers intuition. And instinct Alexander Noah, you say that maybe they had said that Barcelona argue on free kicks they had on and that was in the scouting report. But whatever like ultimately his half Steph to execute this happened this this happened without thought really this was just Alexander owner who quickly saw something like you said a quick glance from diva Caridi. Two guys who were just on the same page. And like, I think it's the kind of thing that you can't give it thought. Because if you give it thought you'll start to overthinking say, no, no, no, let me just play it safe here. Let's get who was it secure. That was going to carry what this is the thing. This is just pure instinct. I see it bang going for goal. We just won the Champions League semi final. It's just it'll happen. So fast last week Graham soon as was on Champions League, Judy in the UK and. For some reason he launched into this tirade about people. I guess the Stotts people, and I guess the Jonathan Wilson's of this world. Who are you know, they talk about tactics, and they believe that tactics and desire and commitment are all netted together. And soon as an ex football mine rails against that. And he said be first to the ball. He said if you're one sentence he said if your first of the bowl, you can make things happen Liverpool were I to every single bowl. So let me tell you about my evening. So I watched the game yesterday. I'm coming out of my office. And I'm I'm clammy sweaty with joy on a mess on. It's the night before my bartender said I'm cracking open about law of wine sent to us by a listener Lee, Starling remember that it's right sent a molten in that bad boy, by the way, wonderful on. I'm gonna sit down we're going to pay to ninety-nine to report. Oh, you did. I'm gonna watch the whole. Thing again, Andrew. The relentlessness of Liverpool. We talk about this kind of pressing. And and this this hive heavy metal football. This was something beyond. This wasn't heavy metal. This was Pantelleria. It was actually it was beyond pantera. It was trash metal. It was. All right. It was separate showroom at. They're just their angriest. For ninety minutes. There's a moment in the eighty first minute where Sergio Bush gates who has been kicked and cluttered round the Anfield field for eighty one minutes, and he gets the ball in what you would describe as a semi safe area. He's dissenter circle on his side of the Barcelona site out of nowhere combs this bottled of head Jordan Henderson. Smashes them and wins the ball. There was no leisure base was the most unbelievable. Victory for that mentality that we're going to go out there, and we're not gonna let you play and you may have a better midfield. And you may have the greatest player in the world. But guess what you won't have time to breathe we're going to suffocate you. It's so true. Like, let's break it down. Yeah. That's midfield that consisted of for being who who is a good ball paying footballer. But who who did more? I've never seen tackles out of him and Anderson consistently all night. It's not just that for being it was yellow carded in what minute hence eleven early. He played the full ninety. Did he not he did? And he's dealing with messy and Soir like he's dealing with these Katina. He's dealing with these players all night, and he managed to make it through with a fairly flawless performance on that yellow car. I mean that was that could have been potentially dangerous for them. But it's just like Trent Alexander Arnold on the second goal. He gives away the bowl. It's sloppy gets a right back straight back and wicks a bowl to an album who scores when out and who was raging. When Alden who was probably full of of. Kind of rage. That's Petur have live on stage because he wasn't starting. I'm look what he does come on the head or just own believable Josie Marie-Noelle who is just brilliant on television though, sums up what this game was about. And some that open one man's name. I didn't expect told impossible is nothing. I told if sports Sibal I'm feel this one of the places to to make impossible be possible. But I have to say that for me, these Ramon Tara has one name Jurgen. I think this is not about tactics. This is not about philosophy. This is about heart and soul, and fantastic empathy. That he created that group of players. They they they had the risk of finishing a fantastic season without nothing to celebrate. And now, they are one step from being European champions. And and I think you're gonna deserves was remarkable about that to me Andrew is he's just outlined everything that he was not much just United point. He can see it. So when we talk about Marino wanting to live in a constant state of fear. Maybe he doesn't have the charisma. Maybe he doesn't have the ability to make players want to die on the field for him. But there was a time. I mean, you hear from former Chelsea players that adored him Damian doll says it all the time he would have run through walls, but maybe somewhere along the line. He's he stopped doing that. Are he can't project in the way he used to? But but back to Klopp this is a unique chemistry. There was a moment. Right at the end where James Milner who? Is the to me of coaching Klopp coaching that he's taken this reared transfer that I trashed. And as made him into this warrior on the field, and he comes over, and he picks him up this utility, man. This man for all seasons. This guy that can slot in at fullback that can start center mid the compay anywhere for this team. And he picks him up. A Miller cryan like he he it was almost I thought he was going to rip him in his arms and do go full officer and a gentleman with just carry him off the field, but he was exhausted through the the the empathy that's created between manager Marino summed it up perfectly. You a lot of people roll. There is a lot of people roll their eyes about Klopp, the charisma the laugh, the hugs all that this team is fighting and dying. And it wasn't the first choice team will that's what makes it so amazing. And it's something that I I actually mentioned last week that I wanted to bring up again today because I said one thing for Liverpool is that you have a team of unsung heroes. You know, when Sala is out when from you know, is out. Income's diva Caridi. Who scores two goals? Like you said when Aldam not starting the game comes in as a sub at halftime scores. Two goals like. If I told you before the game that liberal we're gonna win four no with I mean, maybe say Riga gets one. But like who's guessing that these are? Here's you think maybe Monica it's a hat trick. Maybe milliner converts a penalty like this is for these two guys to step up in the way that they did it's it's a testament not just to them. But it's a testament like you said to your who he instills this in every member of the team. I'm watching when that game ended. Because the game was was riveting unto itself, but you couldn't turn it off because the scenes that Anfield afterwards really were truly memorable. And you're watching Uragan go from player to player. You know, you get players who are as meaningful to them as Alison and Monay. And he's hugging them. And then he's going over to people that you, you don't know you don't even recognize these people and he's hugging them in the same way. And like you can tell every person on that club. Feels a sense of purpose. A sense of belonging. We have in our interview with Bruce Grobbelaar. He talks about Liverpool. When I asked him, what is this feeling this? You know, these European nights? He says the thing about it is it is truly a family. And I don't know if that if there was a period of time when it went away. I don't mean for that to be an indictment on the managers who have been there in the year since some of them are former Liverpool men this. But for whatever it is that went on in those past years your Klopp. If there is this family. Feeling around the club. He has brought it back. There is no question about it. And you see it on the faces of every one of those players after the game. No, I totally agree on them. It was really emotional. Because there's there's such a connection between the fines and the players that has somehow endured in modern era where the players don't live down the road from you. And they don't go to the buyer, and they don't go to the same shops as you. So you have to create something some kind of link with the team and somehow Klopp has managed to do that and Klopp is very aware of this. Remember when they used to come on the field. Remember they had a draw last year against West Brom when they're fighting for top four a droll, and they they snatched a draw from from defeat regular season game. And they go down Klopp Concon, and they clap the cop, and you're like, Oma, Godin burst. Like, it's West Brom. Come on guys. We're. We've got to be bigger than that on me. I'll take the criticism when he jumped on the field after the regal showed that passion and hugged was it DeJean Lovran are whoever was he picked up on you got flying, obviously. And I looked at that. And I thought small-time way we doing this. But it's all building towards something. I care about you. I care about this job. We are a family. I care about the history. I care about the people who come to the games, and he alluded to the fines as well. The atmosphere was red hot and Klopp was asked an interesting question about the kind of symbiosis between the fans and the victory last night. Yeah, he was asked if this would have happened in an empty state while I thought was a request not a chance we know that this club is the mix off at fear emotion. Desire and football. Quality without you cut off one. It doesn't work. We know that said it before. For me, disrupt after describe it. It's a big heart and tonight. It was obviously like crazy. What is it? Doing this pounding pounding like crazy, and you could hear it probably and feel it all over the roads. It's just unbelievable. I'm so happy that could give the people. This this experience, and I'm really happy about having another chance. To get the things right from our point of view. I think he started there by saying no chance that he said he said no chance that an empty stadium could produce that. It's amazing. It's absolutely amazing. No, I'm I'm one of the first people. Didn't it primarily grounds are not what they used to be three o'clock kickoffs mundane games, they're not like as regularly raucous, but they can be, but they can be an it's there, and if you harness it it can be something amazing and at Liverpool. It is a real living breathing thing. It's it's such a cliche. But it's a twelve twelfth man. It absolutely is an drives them on under so much the history of the club. The heartache in old people went. To get them livable matches and never came home. And there's a sense of ownership of the club by defines. But there's also a sense of responsibility from the players, and I think that maybe under so managers that responsibility was not properly. Addressed I know New York and Klopp. It has been certainly has his honesty is refreshing afterwards. This was this game was madness. For to go down the way that it did against Barcelona of all teams to have done this Klopp was asked afterwards just about the game and people who are trying to set it. How do they do it? How do they do the manager? Didn't even know how they did it. He said the whole game was too much winning difficult, but with a clean sheet. I don't know how they did it. He doesn't even know the. But that's the point Liverpool. I told you before we don't have appeared low. We don't have a voice gets in the middle of the park, a guy who's going to control things what we have is latent aggression. What we have is when I smash into attack of that ball's gonna break somewhere. We're going to be on it and things happen in those moments of chaos, and then we have the quality to execute a pass to execute a Finnish to do something special. That's what that is. Yeah. Now on the other side of this. We do have to mention Barcelona. Here because you know, you're talking about the aggression from Liverpool, and it was clear to see. And it's why they won four nil. There's no question about it. The you know India, and I think the right team won like you look at the aggregate score of four three. And if you just flew in from Mars and saw that scoreline, but you know, you knew these teams were good. You could say I could see that you never would have thought. It would go the way that it did. But in the end, I think Liverpool beating Barcelona four three over two legs is that's feasible, but for Barcelona to concede these four the way that they did in succession, I don't they will get up from it there. Maybe the greatest club in the world with the greatest player the world has ever seen who is still in his prime. Make no mistake about that. But this is two years in a row now where this has happened last year against Roma which may be looking back on it was more inexcusable than this. Even simply because I do believe this Liverpool. Teen is an all time team. I don't know that we're saying that about last year's Roma. No, we're definitely not for this to happen. Two years in a row to this. This edition of Barcelona. Are people going to pay for this in their with their job? Or is it going to be massive turnover? In terms of the roster like this. It's great for them to win the league while Liga's. No, that's no small feat Atlantico Madrid. You know? That's a great thing. But I mean, who are we kidding Barscelona aspirations are simply higher than that. They believe they should be winning this competition every year, especially when they see what their biggest rival in Real Madrid been doing over the last five six year. Now, I can't be guaranteed that it would have made a difference. But I thought Vilvorde a picked a lumbering midfield by plane pairs like data Fidel actually had a decent first half. But second half hundred. This seemed almost like Spurs did in the first half against ex today like kinda slow and old and off the pace and also on able to deal with the aggression. That was being forced upon them continue is going to the reports out of Barcelona continual will be a sacrificial lamb for this team. He is. I mean, it's opened up a dam of. Oh, he does. Don't train. Well, he's not a Barcelona player coaches of being unhappy. The commentary was just I don't know, man. Some of this just feel so reactionary to me, we're we're not in it day in day out with Barcelona. We don't cover the team reporters who do see things differently. So I will defer to them, but you know, they are waltzing to a league title. And what are you? What is it you always site as Brian Cluff who always talks about the true barometer of teams greatness is probably how they perform in the league what he's always said whether or not that's true, we can debate that I think most people look at the Champions League winner typically as the best team in in Europe and in the world, but Barcelona or waltzing to a title in the league, and they do the seemingly every year. It feels like right now are things that bat was this just one bad night on the heels of year ago suffering from one bad night. Well. Let's look at it. They did create chances last night. Really good chance did. And they did not convert them what who's mon- belly scores in the in the first leg to go. Put that a I mean, you think about some of these miss chances while it's true, no Liverpool. I think it wasn't for three nil did not reflect properly on Liverpool in the first leg, but equally it could have been foreign had them belly. Don't his business, and you wonder about the debts there. He got for messy messy Clinton new. There's there's the three new left the door slightly open, especially if you get an early goal as Liverpool did four nine it just it would have put them in a kind of an insurance zone with that with that fourth goal. But with the way Liverpool play you would you would never have known. Maybe they could've got like five if they had to anything seemed possible anything's possible. There's one guy not to cut you off. But I do wanna call someone out because you're buying large. I thought Barcelona did have moments where they were decent in this game. Like, you said three no may not have properly. Resembled what the first game was. I don't know that Barcelona were worthy of being four nil losers in the second one either. But I gave I feel so dumb. I gave all this praise to Jordi Alba after the first like I chose that moment to suddenly come out and say, hey, this guy is unbelievable. He was so bad in the second leg could not believe I was watching the same player, and I wanna credit Henry Bush Nell on Twitter. There was a moment in the first half. I believe when Barscelona our bombing forward. They have numbers in attack and the ball comes to Jordi Alba and JJ he's one on one with the keeper. And I didn't even really see it in real time, but Bush Nell on Twitter account, if you go back, and look he has like a freeze frame of the moment. Jordi Alba is one on one with the keeper. He has an angle if he wants to take it. He could score this goal, and he chooses in that moment to play it back to messy rather than taking himself, and he plays it back to mess. It gets way. And nothing. Comes from it. It gets Nick. Yeah, I've talked by virtue of how it ended. Yeah. And I just look at that. And this was after the first goal where Jordi Alba was at fault. And you think ok his confidence is gone that moment early in the he's rattled. And he's done, and you continue to see it throughout the course of the game. I don't wanna put it all on one guy because a capitulation like that is hardly one guy's fault. But man it stood out to me because because I proclaimed him to be this great player. And I still think he is. But he was so bad. He was so bad that the first goal the lax days ago the header what does he think? Oh, no. Again, Trente Alexander earn losing the bowl there. Okay. You can you can argue that that shouldn't automatically to go. But with the way Liverpool are playing it does. I thought I thought Alison had a really good game that he made a save from was Jordi Alba's well towards the end of the first half he made a brilliant amid of very solid stop from Cotino early on. When when Barcelona were big inning to click. Remember that a rages one two between rackets and messy right at the end where it's basically a one too. But it's over about twenty yards and messy finds himself in the back post. No, he doesn't get the best connection. He's ever got volleys at the near post. And he's gotta make a save there as well. He was excellent. He really wasn't. He was a calming force in that whole Liverpool defense which in the second half. I mean, sparse Lona they've got to create more than that. They didn't. Because guess what every time that tried to do anything? It was rage rage. That is angry music if I've ever heard it, but it is true. It's it was to meet that kind of that level of ability of Barcelona's unto just suffocated. This is just hasn't even sunk in yet. I should tell you and everybody listening, whatever I'll tell all of you. You're all like family to me. Anyway, I was this close to crying at work today. Have you ever cried at work? Lot of question. Probably. Here's a frustration working with you. No, no from me. I I thought of a few people yesterday. I'll let you do your crying. Let me talk about going for one we second. Yeah. Yeah. At fulltime. It was you did always even when I was when I was talking earlier on the podcast here. I'm I'm trying to keep it together. Look, I'll say this. I don't blame you. Because like I said when the game ended and you watch the players line up in front of the cop. The players are crying the fans are crying. I mean, you've heard a lot of dishes that song. It was one of the most full-throated seeing songs that I've ever heard from that from that stadium. And they've had a lot of good ones over the years. So I could see why you would brought me back to Kiev last year. And there was this weird moment of silence when we kind of knew the gig was off and we weren't going to lift old big ears. And it was a lot of people just kind of housing yard stare stare note onto the field. And there was this moment of silence couldn't hear anything and the liberal funds were utterly. Utterly quiet. An a breeze came in off the river, and it was like warm summer breeze. And I was like. We might be here. Again, we might get here again. And then you're walking out of the grown and. You're all together. Like and people were talking, and they just had so much faith in Klopp was his. It's unbelievable. He's like a benevolent called later. Like, an amazing guru people talking. I'm coming down the steps with a guy you've never met. And I said all right. We've needed the chance to keep her for a while though. He will address it we need we need to sort out something in the midfield. And he will signing was for being yo-. And you just you felt like good. But you didn't know if you'd be back again, it was this weird melancholy, and and your back and you're back, we're we're more than back. This is back to back finals where we're back in the lead of European football for the first time since before the ban like we haven't being consistently I know to back to back finals in the mid two thousand we went to earn doing no two and three years, but it never I don't know it didn't feel like European dominance. And then we went into the wilderness journey the the years at the end of the gelatin Hicks era before if his Tiki man, this feels different Liverpool and Tottenham are gonna play in the Champions League final this next three weeks is going to be incredibly fun as we build up to this a promise to everybody listening who are not Liverpool. In fact, we're not gonna be insufferable swear to you. We're gonna talk about everything there's US women's World Cup to get ready for there's Gold Cup stuff for the US. I saw the Andre Ettlin, unfortunately has had to have surgery and now we'll be doubt potentially for the Gold Cup. So we are still going to do all that MLS. I did actually have all the stuff for MLS that I was ready to talk about today. FC Cincinnati made a managerial change there were trades. Justin Maram is now a member of Atlanta. United f c she's actually have all this stuff here to talk about. But it just today is just not the day where people are itching for that stuff. No today's day of their games and analyst tonight. I know I know before I will do a quick what to watch for before that I do just want to say that for people in the northeast or the New York area. We don't know yet. But we do wanna do because it's just feels this is just too unique to ignore not like Liverpool. This happens you guys like I said you guys were here last year. And I could see you being like we've said repeatedly throughout this run by Tottenham. You don't know when this is going to happen. This is something truly uniquely different and special. So we desperately want to do something uniquely different and special for the Champions League final whether that be a watch party somewhere, we're gonna we're gonna think about this over the next week, and hopefully have something for you. 'cause last year it was it was JJ in the back of taxi go into his go to his hotel and Kiev, and that was fun. But you were like the anchor. This is such a weird feeling right now because here you, and I are, you know, you've got your Liverpool jersey on I got my Tottenham jacket on and when you came in tonight after the the Tottenham game, we gave each other big hug, and we're cheering with each other the way we started the podcast and screaming. Oh, yes. At the same time. Like, we're we're United right now in this mutual joy that our teams have gotten to this point. And that we're gonna wake up tomorrow, and we're gonna realize wait a minute. I we're playing I'm playing that team. Now, like, this is I'm almost worried about a mutual watch party with you a me with fans of Spurs and Liverpool almost worried because like the emotion of which just went down in the semi finals is just at such a fervor for both of these clubs right now that. We got a little nervous. You got any operatic music because I feel like this is a trailer trailer for film operatic music plays this summer to friends two brothers tour apart by final. They never expected in a year. That's been something else for the Champions League. And then it'll it'll cut to me and you having this. This this joyous moment. It'll show our HOGAN slow MO torn apart by the clubs they love, and you and it'll show you then caught you turn around. I loved you, man. What have you become? I will I'll make a promise you right now. I swear I'm going to be as good during this time as I can possibly be. I'm not gonna be a d a promise a promise it's going to be very hard on such a bad guy. It just didn't you? You don't think at any point? I'm just going to go, look, this is the culture club versus the little imposter and all that kind of stuff. You know, what I'm at a point right now where I actually on on embracing that I kind of enjoy because when Tottenham had these moments along the way when they were in the title challenge against LeicesteR. They weren't there was they weren't the underdog the fund underdog story that was less. There were like why aren't they doing better even going into today? Like, I asked may be a better team than Tottenham. They I know Tottenham went through, but they re I really might be. But even still taught that made it to Champions League semi final. And they still couldn't really own the fund underdog story that was still I x now we can have it trotting against Liverpool. You're clear favorites. You may end up winning the league who knows come the end of this weekend. So if you wanna if you wanna take that tact, I will own that, I'm enjoying the underdog role in this can I mentioned Christian Erickson very quickly because Ireland of Demer regularly. I've I've seen his post-match. Brutal honesty, it is brutality. He does. Not mince words. He is the kind of guy where you know, if you came in. He said, oh, man. I love this new jacket. What do you think about new jagged? I'll go. Yes. So great jacket, even if I think it's horrifically Christian Erickson will go it's horrible. Take it off right now burner. Never speak of it again tonight. He said I XE were definitely the better team over the two legs. He said it came out and said it straight away, and then he goes, and then he was asked about the comeback. And he goes what we had to do something. Like, what was he said the other option was we'll have some of his quotes here, read them. He says today, it was non tactical more of a fight and heart performance heart and Lucas Maura. He's how we won the game. He deserves it. It's been a roller coaster of season for him to get us in the final. I hope he gets a statue in England after this. We are blown away on he's so honest that he. He probably will call up Daniel Levy and say how's Lucas statue coming on? Oh my God. We have a mailbag. So we do. Yeah. I've a quick one. Because by the way, we're in the thousands of I don't think I'm going to be able to get back to everyone who who wished us, well like in this tribal moment. Football has never been more weaponized in terms of rivalries of fines than in the social media age. But a lot of people who, you know, give us a lot of abuse during the regular season have been almost human about what happened over the last two days. But anyway, join do quick mailbox super-quick 'cause I still have what to watch for. All right. Okay. May first of all at this is a very well intentioned message that was sent Twitter tweet Ishmail. This is we're looking at. It's amazing how important and influential a football notch can be this is from the house of Commons. And the first voice you hear is Jeremy Corbyn leader of the opposition. He is referencing Liverpool's amazing win as a way of a I guess a jibe the Prime Minister Theresa may view of the amazing performance of Liverpool last night. Perhaps the prime minister could take some tips from. Yergin cloak on. How to get a good result in Europe? The Liverpool win over Barcelona Knauss night. We'll shows is that when everyone says it's all that you'll European position of. The cokes king down. It's time to can see defeat actually be considered secure successive. Everyone. Sick burned or friend. That is just so horrific. So that's what it's all about. So I smoke goes. It's amazing how important and influential football match can be there's nothing more important than football. But it's utterly worthless. When these people are talking about it, it's it's when they're using it for political. Yeah. It's a meaningless attempt political point scoring, and it's a cynical on these are people who are bringing the country to the point of it might actually be hired to sign players for Liverpool and Spurs, and because of Brexit, and I just want to hear from them when I was in fifth grade. I ran for student council president, and in my speech, an unreal, man. I referenced the Mighty Ducks and the way they came together. I was in fifth grade these are professional politicians using the same essentially insert Liverpool with Mighty Ducks. They made the same speeches me if I did win, by the way. Oh, I bet. Mr President is really what you're probably referring referring to me. I bet. You're ever lose as your policies were week. You were a week later on. There was a military coup in the school, and you are ousted. That'd be held up in the in the boiler room the tanks rolling in at feed. Al cash flow to three cat, wait to hear the smog. Andrew Goodling and exceedingly self-satisfied Jada divinely barely keep it together and share joy only to gradually turn on each other. When they begin analyzing the looming final this will be the true test of their partnership. So it is fun. I wonder I wonder how many people out there who are fans are Everton fans who thought you know, what I'm curious what they have to say about I'll listen, and they heard the way we started with a screaming. No, I can't do it. Shut it off. There's a few of them. All right. Joey are. So if I judge it Vanni and. At eagling both flight Madrid wash their teams. How are we going to have a podcast the next few soccer pas are going to be absolutely mental. Well, that's why it makes sense that we have a watch party and do something along those lines here in New York. We've got a mobile the way guys if you know of a buyer that will be full that is not parent is on let us know. Let's get involved. Let's let's start some kind of conversation here. Please get in touch. You can get us on Twitter soccer powder caught off site pod at dot com. Spaceman six nine does. This mean the end of the pod for good. And you said because this is what I haven't referenced that. Now, my this was my nightmare. This was always my nightmare was for Tottenham to wind up against you lot in the final me lauding it over you. It's happened at Garcia George seventeen Liverpool. Spurs UCLA final. I'm in Philly. But I'd love a cough side, watch party in Manhattan. That is the way we are thinking kale Wilson the most anticipated pod since Trinidad I mean, I guess funny. Someone said that because I think I said the same almost the same words tonight that I said that night, but for the complete opposite reason, I remember the sort of the Trinidad podcast, I said, this is the podcast. We never thought we do because the thought of the US not qualifying was crazy. And I said the same thing tonight with this is the podcast. I never thought I'd do Tottenham in a Champions League. Final against Liverpool. Yes. In parallel. It is interesting after Trinidad you went into paralysis of the mouth and here for twenty minutes. Twenty minutes staring at a screen refreshing hope hoping that something was wrong in the table. Yeah. It was no let's not do this again, by the way ahead VAR existed. The US would have gone to the world and at any it lane at laimi, oh two thousand while your podcast will be fun to listen to. I was going to enjoy the misery. I thought but now I will enjoy the elation snick tunes questions. Remember couple episodes go when Andrew said he'd quit the pod of Tottenham loss than the ultimate coughs I- Darby in the Champions League. Final law JJ. How would you feel if Tottenham on the final could the pod go on now? I love this too much. I love what we do too much. I would keep it going that podcast is going to. I'm saying right now that's gonna be a really truly difficult one for someone. But we're professionals are we we are what is this. I hit when you do this. How in the moment of the greatest joy. Can you be this work to fans look at us right now being were wearing we screened like like children at the start of this. What's been professional about the last hour? Fifteen minutes sent you. Let joy into your heart for y so filled with joy right now. You can't even believe since that will not happen because we all know you too much, and I know deep down you bought love each other. All hypothetically speaking, though, who solo he's hitting up. He's doing a Mike and the mad dog on us who hypothetically speaking, though, who solo pod would be better. Get more listens. If if you just couldn't stand each other anymore and split up as always love, the pod, Nick, you are an instigator. Well, obviously mine would do web of the two of us are only I have actually done the solo pod on this. So it has happened. Yeah. It was an amazing episode. Probably our best that happened once. Yes, incredible. I let the side down you went back home. And he said, I I haven't watched games you have to do this alone. I was like I I felt like Garth in Wayne's world. Oh, that's right. And he's just staring at the camera. This is having a good time. Right. But then I gathered myself, and it was brilliant. Not a bad idea from who was that that we did that. Which would you take the call or the offside total name-change speaking of which I'll remind people once again that we have nothing to do with the website caught offside. Yeah. Whatever whatever. Whatever slurry. They're putting out this week at home. I'm not just saying that people seem to think that we get messages from. Hey, we want to write for your website. No, that's not our website. We just happen to have the same name. Plus, we can barely read or write super-quick what to watch for. Thank you to everybody who did send in messages. We only got to read a like a small fraction was actually sent to us. But we'll have time over the next few weeks. That's for damn sure. Let's see very quick what to watch for feel bad JJ that I've given like real short shrift to the rope league semifinals with Chelsea and on-track Frankfort one one second leg for Chelsea Thurs. Both these are Thursday, three o'clock, and then Valencia and Arsenal's it goes back to Spain for the second leg three one arsenal with the advantage there. I would say that there is a very. Strong chance for all the people who you know. Sometimes message into us. Oh, you talk too much Premier League. It's too. It's too Premier Li eccentric. It's not even the best league. Look, I will plead guilty that we are to Premier Li Centric. That's just the way it is. And I think people who listen to this just you just kinda know that by now, but to the people who don't think it's it's worthy of that. We are staring at the possibility of both the Champions League final. Andy Roper league final made up exclusively of Premier League teams in a season. By the way, when it felt like there were only two good for merely teams with Manchester City and Liverpool and only one of those two will be represented in a final. So how bad is this league? Why do I feel like one of these teams, and it looks like probably arsenal going to Valencia that doesn't seem on his not kneeled on even at three one. You don't think I don't know arsenal are gonna with with the fact that top four is now probably not definitely, but probably out of there remained the in in yours. There has to be a desperation. In there for them to this is it now their season will be defined by what happened hair of the narrative by being awful. And by the way, what has happened the last couple days is exactly why I will not concede the top four like with arsenal. And tottenham. I don't care what that goal differential says. We just watched the insanity of the sport. I'm not conceding anything. That's why I'm not conceding the primarily speaking of which here we go. It is the final weekend. Like, I feel like this in itself. It should be a full podcast the final weekend of what has been an unbelievable season this title race, which we have been riveted by since August will culminate Sunday, ten AM, Brighton and Manchester City Liverpool and wolves. Here's what you need to know. Essentially, a win is the simplest way for Manchester City to take the title a draw or a loss combined with Liverpool. Win would swing the title over to Liverpool. It's worth noting that they draw will not be enough for Liverpool. They have to win. After an that is what is at stake. It's not an easy assignment for Liverpool. I know Manchester City are on the road at Brighton and Brighton have fought admirably recently against arsenal against Tottenham but pep is hard for me to sit. Pep was asked about the squad. We're bringing everyone I'm we're going to attack attack attack. So he's gone full game of thrones. Like his hip, he's bringing the entire battalion on he I guess he has the he can't he can't take any chances Brighton. Breitner on the beach, though, literally. Well, I'm Dave they have fought recent. I mean, they were on the beach car hit assured Brighton that they'd be staying guesses as new so and they fought like hell against arsenal. So who they look this is this is a chance for them to make their Mark in in some way in a very unique way. So you say they're on the beach. I don't envision them rolling over. They have a chance not saying that the impact Tuttle rates. That's all kind of a potentially a once in a lifetime chance for them. Chris hard of the store shootings, a total pro they've got, you know, decent centrebacks in Donkin dough Phil tremendous last week. Yeah. Just don't know. And then the only other race really going on. Like, I said it is the the fourth and fifth spots are still at stake. Burnley will host arsenal. Tottenham will host Everton a win or draw seals fourth place for Spurs. They can lose this game as long as they don't. Completely s themselves. Which is could happen. It would be in keeping with this season for you guys to poop your pants at the weekend this season. And crazy. I think that's it. It's not think I've run out of words championship semifinals guys. So if you haven't been keeping up to speed leads are in the middle of an implosion that would make the top four blush, but they are taking out an on Frank Lampard's there become t and in the other tight. It's Aston Villa verses West Brom soul leads are on the road. They are going to the baseball ground. Our excuse me. No longer the best book on Pride Park Saturday. How do you? How do you forget Pride Park because baseball which was cooler name. I don't have the rest of the lyrics isn't is next line about them into fried body. Go into pock. By he that's when Robbie savage was Derby County player and decided that Twitter he was gonna make Twitter. He created Twitter for footballers. Bye. Two. Getting denver. So leads go there, and I'm sure what Robbie song ringing in their ears. And then the local Darby, which will be talk about mean you go head to head. This'll be feisty the point Boyne Baggies. Play at Villa Park on Saturday, so seven thirty AM kickoff Saturday for villa? West Brom twelve fifteen Saturday for Derby County, legion ided both both Andrew on ESPN. Plus the championship playoff is. It is so funny gave us the Troy Deeney moment. It's utterly compelling stuff in the final can often be really, really grit. There you go, man. Oh my God. What a this is just been the best. Hey, one more time for all time with these quick. Catholic. Comes through to Lucas. His huge. To the Champions League. Pood- God Evans league fine from.

Caught Offside: EPL Final Day Review

"All right three to one. Caught offside with Andrew gummy and J J D. Benny. Yes. Offside for number west side of Manhattan, Andrew gulling and J J vani. What's up rather? I'm fine. How are you? Oh, well, the season is over we're to now be doing a post primarily podcast now the season isn't fully over because they're still an FA Cup. They're still oh, just a little European funnel. Put it is. I mean, we'll never stop being hilarious and awesome. All at once. Yeah. That is an thank you to everyone who listen to our Champions League podcast from last week. And and enjoyed our joy Twitter is such a social media in general is such a negative space the motivational who I love I love and a guy from Iowa starts an Email. I'm a diehard West Ham fan, but I'm happy for you guys. Like, I love that like even an arsenal fan wrote in and said that he at first went into it with like a bad attitude, but our joy was infectious. Which is unbelievable. Yeah. I and ultimately like as much as we enjoy like breaking out in the game. And I, you know, analyzing stuff and doing all that it is nice to be able to show joy and not get like killed for it right to to enjoy something on not be told. You're a bandwagon or yours. Your can I tell you what I did last night. So the Sixers played last night and. For anybody. Who's listening to this podcast for any length of time? You know, I'm a massive insane Philadelphia sports fan. So that was it's one of the worst losses. I've ever experienced as a fan. We're gonna get certainly the worst basketball loss I've ever experienced for the Sixers it was it was horrifying. So the game ended, and I I just sat there I turned off the TV because I want to know part of anything I was going to watch game of thrones. But I was like I'm not I don't I'm not in the mood for anything. And you sometimes, you know, after a bad loss, you almost wanna punish yourself? So I just turned off the TV, and I sat there and stared and finally when I kind of came out of this like Hayes stupor, and I was in such a horrible mood. And I just like Amanda went up to bed, and I just continued to sit there, and I didn't even know what to even do. Now, you know, what I did to try to brighten my spirits? I went on YouTube, and I just watched one Tottenham video after another. After another. I must have seen every every person who posted a reaction video to them reacting to the Lucas Mora winning goal. I've seen it. I've seen all your videos. Everyone of you out there. I watched the highlights over and over I went on Tottenham Twitter feed and just watch their content. I just I watched all of it to try to get myself out of this out of his head space that I was in. And you know, what it worked now yesterday? I didn't feel like that. I felt kind of just flat a little bit disappointed. But I can see why you do I have done that kind of thing before we were you just throw yourself into a joyous moment. Get lost in this. Sometimes just put on a Seinfeld or family guy or something or just something that I can just like, take my mind. Elsewhere sopranos is my one I'll anchor man. I used used to be a big one for me. So yeah, let's talk though about what happened on Sunday because that is really the big story Manchester City champions again fourth in eight seasons. They right now are really. In the midst of a run of dominance, where I think you'd have to like, you know, ceramics had his run with United then a brief kind of rain with with Vander, although not clue not like this and then kind of into Marino, which Chelsea I think now we're in we're in a Manchester City world now in the Premier League that I mean the way you Frist is shocking hundred percent accurate. I'm actually I'm quite quite scary. Really, really quite scary. Because you don't see anything derailing city right now except some kind of governance issue. Like what came down today and was reported in the New York Times where they may be you take in the first minutes of. Go right into financial fair play because. Yes, get them come on. I love the bitterness get them. No. It's genuine you. Not bitterness drove down this road dominance. I don't think we're in their era. We're in their world now firing away they've back to back titles firing away the best team wins. If far and away the best team in England, obviously, proven not far and away. We'll talk about that. But yeah. Another another triumph thought that they deserve. You. See you've put me in an in his own. I didn't want to be with I wanna go. What's the matter might you want to go to the straightaway? But I'm going to go to this straightaway. Because there's you know, obviously on this podcast. We talk about as much football as we possibly can. But we often talk from the perspective of being fan. So I'm always like overly conscious that people in this era. Just wanna call. You a Homer on one? Abs like you offer that so I found someone who wrote something that sums up what I think about this Manchester City team, and that is as magnanimous as I get it's play Barney Ronay the city supremacy. You love that you like that you pretty much because that's pretty much how you will speak truth to power. Oh. Is the world's worst fray. It's it's terrible. I get chills every time. He heard he just speaks truth to power, and I respect that the city supremacy has not been an organic process. The billions spent are significant the Premier League has no been worn twice in a row by sublime team that acts is in advertising billboard for this date of Abu Dhabi yet. This Dan separate from the chief of the players and staff it is the paradox of city the only real world star in the setup is the manager city. I haven't gone out and bought a bolt on team of proven balance door level gold psychopaths, they didn't go for an or messy, but in invested in fine young players almost all of whom have been pushed to the over levels of their talent. That is how I feel that is the best accommodation. I can come to with a city with a team in city for most of my life were laughing stock a yoyo club. Now, I'm quite comfortable to say pep Guardiola is excellent manager. And you look at all the work. All those videos. We saw them working with Brahim Starling. You know painting lines on the training ground to get them to go white look at all that stuff the patterns of play ice on New York and orangeburg at preseason. All that work all those young players come together under an excellent coach and deservedly are champions. Yep. And you know, I like what Barney irony? Barney Rona wrote there because it does it does speak a little bit too. You know, the contributions that they've received on so many different levels from so many different players like if you looked at this team before the season, and you, and you know, you were told they were going to go on this run to put up what was a ninety eight points that they finished with this year. Gabriel Jay's Zeus was kind of a bit part. Kevin Nebraska was injured for two stretches of the season for multiple weeks on end Fernan, Dino who we were told multiple times throughout the season might be their most important player can't win without him. He missed time or injury Benjamin Mendy for the second straight year. There's people who are who probably forget he's even on their team. So like he pet you know, like you said he took him sterling and turn them into arguably the best player in the league. You know, he took Bernardo Silva who a year ago was for however, good Bernardo Silva, wasn't his first year with Manchester City. He was basically a super sub that was pretty much his role. What depend say though, in the midst of that he will be here for seasonal season. He loved you. He'd be here as long as I'm here. He said, right? But he he's taken Bernardo Sylvan made him one of the best players in the league. You know, David Silva at times the season. We're starting to see his age. They still found a way to use him in a in a productive way. By the way, they did this. They went on this rob for the league. They won their last fourteen games. And like what was LeRoy sonic to that? Like, these are all all these names right now are on yesterday. Didn't even come on. These are all these names saying J Zeus Sanni. These are all players that if you told me they were gonna go on this crazy run through the league. Like, they did I would think these guys would have been huge parts but pep found ways to get. Everyone to just play their role. No, one guy really needed to stand out from the rest by all that much with the exception. Maybe of sterling who did have an extraordinary year. Yeah. Pet does in write the checks. You know, the money is being supplied for from somewhere else. And I can't guarantee you that they if they didn't get a lesser standard of player that he couldn't coach the halo to those guys. He is. I do believe he's that good. But it's it's it's a measure of city strengthened depth that you can take on someone like rand Maras and not play him in a league game since the first week in April, and he pops up with a with a wonderful goal, which really separated the sides. It put the tin hat on the result yesterday as far as final days school for a little while for a brief moment. Andrew I thought it was set up for one of those days where it gave you that little hope while when Liverpool went one nil up. I was like, yes. But it was fairly sustained poop pressure on. I really. Had to turn to my ipad. And see what was happening in that city. And despite what the wolves fans were trying to trick Anfield into thanking. There was no goal until a little bit. After that. When when Glen Murray nodded home or whatever happened there because it was by the way, you watch two games at once. You don't watch any game. I'm convinced of that. But he did it was on a corner kick it, right? And it was very well done. Stop that moment. I got up punch. My pump my fist at come on. Here. We go put this city, and it was really no surprise that. A guero put cold water on that really really quickly with his equalizer. And then by halftime there were head. The Vincent company goal against LeicesteR on Monday that will probably be the defining moment of the season for Manchester City, just because of like the moment an aunt who did it what it meant. However, I would say the guero immediate. Response against Brighton might actually be like the bigger moment. Just because if that if he doesn't do that as quickly like with true immediacy to brightens goal who knows how that could spiral in any way. If the as the pressure builds now, I think Manchester City is above that we saw that a little bit in the second leg against Tottenham in the champions. Even though they didn't go through. I mean the way that city responded to the pressure was admirable. But you just you don't know. And we saw the way Brighton we're able to defend against arsenal that, but that response from Aguayo and how quickly it happened to me it shut the door. Now, I know even at a draw if it had remained one one Liverpool still would have been the winners. But you just felt like when that Glen Murray or the guero response to the Murray Gell happen. I thought that was just that was it for me for me. I agree with everything you're saying there, but I don't believe I believe the longer that goes on at one nil say they got to have. Time in. It was one nil dot is causes serious tension series nerves going into the break. I was wonderful little piece of player from I think davits who've to play him in on a on a grid. Finish the fact that they got back to party so quickly. Andrew was huge yet. You can't. It was interesting in Miguel Delaney's peace, and he was there. He said it was genuinely tense for that period of time. It was genuine he test. And if you watched the sideline I don't care how good a coach pep Guardiola is his demeanor to me. I thought the same thing never sends calmness. Tranquillo? None of that. He is why you're off his jacket. He threw it. Well, it was good that he got up and was pacing the sideline in one sense. Because it meant that Michaela Ted has ear got a break. Like, he just talks at him. You know, you you you pan, and he's complaining in our tied his ear and Arteta's just nodding on any gets Opie. Whips a jacket off prowling the sideline not. He's a great coach, but he would not inspire calmness. In me pep said this about the title to win the title. We had to win fourteen games in a row. This was the toughest title in all my career by far. I don't think that that is high personally, I really don't I think liberty. Moses. He's always kind of being a front runner entitles, titles and stayed ahead. But it's not just that. It was close. I mean Liverpool forced city to find something within themselves wear smashes there. They had to they if they didn't win fourteen games to end the season. They don't win on where that's an incredible thing to ask. But identify within those fourteen games, by the way did already lost four games right yet. The wobble was over. So when Liverpool actually we'll get to wear Liverpool wrong. But identify for me in the fourteen games where it was in doubt. Maybe a bit against LeicesteR on Monday night. Still a one nil win maybe a bit against Burnley away. There was far more. How shall we say nervy moments on the Liverpool side there was some there was the potus game? And there was the Newcastle away. Art the Southampton away game and Newcastle away were Liverpool nearly blew it. But the fact of the matter is Liverpool continue to play first and continue whether it was closer not the continued to win regardless of how they did it. So they so Manchester City went into all of these games for the entire last three months of the season knowing we have to win we we have no choice. But if you look at if you look at the what we thought will be the defining games. Last or give them a better game than either the game in the Manchester, derby are Spurs, that's the facts of it. And I I honestly feed while it was an unbelievable thing to go and take and win fourteen gains like that. I never honestly from that Newcastle defeat when Liverpool did not capitalize against LeicesteR and then against West Ham, those two results in the back of my mind was sit he have lost four times. You think they're losing the fifth or drawing don't see it. I didn't see it that that that was your that was your own self defense mechanism as a liver pie was hoping against with that is you thought Liverpool control of their destiny show you so you had set an expectation. Oh, fourteen games ago. Yeah. City are gonna win every single one. Sorry, come on. Andrew whom we drew at we drew at Goodison Park that was it for me. I genuinely fed city we're going to go. Well, it's not just that. Manchester City won all those games then the season until. Brighten scored that goal to go up one nil JJ they didn't even trail in a game since they had lost Newcastle. Right. Didn't even trail. So right. So where are you telling me where was this Liverpool force them to find the Monday? That's what you you're not getting it Liverpool. Because of how great Liverpool were the season. They forced city to go into every game saying we need to be perfect today. And this was good enough to answer that call. It was an amazing job by this team. I don't I don't quite the it that way, I just I just view it through a different lens. But but it doesn't mean it's not an lenses are broken. You need to go to Pearl vision and need to get it doesn't mean. It's not a I just don't look at it that way, I'm sorry apology accepted can't see through your eyes, man. I just don't get us. Sometimes it doesn't mean. They're not fantastic for what they did. Yeah. I mean, I just I just what it is. You're you were. No, I you. So you you know, what? Then you're a soothe Sayer I give you credit because you had you set an expectation saying yes city are going to win every single game. What's the big deal? We already know that this is over nine now saying anyone else. No. I never said Watson. I I guess I'm looking at it in terms of of the race itself on looking at it in terms of that. This was the greatest Tytler as we've seen in primarily history. And I think if consistency is your thing if if two teams Duke ended up with with Knowlton's from about March onwards, that's fine. But I think what happened was the the the blips for manned city on the slips for Liverpool happened so early in the season that the natural drama was sucked out of it at the end. And what we saw was to teams down the stretch doing what they should be doing and beaten the teams that should be beating. Here was Vincent company on this title for Manchester. Eighty. I think the Hondas and most satisfying from league. We played against Liverpool was exception. I don't mean to rub it in. It is what it is is to be a loser today. But it makes me so much more happy. Replayed against such a good team all season on one bucks word against the world. We you know, we we won coma. They're not made the different today. And until now we were we were able to stay in front of I'm so happy for for myself before the team on the fans. On. Yeah. I mean, the win at the ad was big. It was big for city. But again, I'll say United away Everton away Lester at home west time away. That's the tale of of of. Why of why Liverpool ended up second ninety seven points? Yeah. It's one law. So might my buddy who's in Monday night said this most absolutely absolutely goal. You. Yeah. You 'cause you wonder how how how are you going to come back in and even get close to that again? And on our city going to keep setting this blistering pace. It's well if you want to start to move into the Liverpool side of the conversation, that's fine. I think that I don't want to speak for you. But I do think that there's some comfort a Liverpool fan can take knowing that you forced city to earn. It you never you you never handed this to them like I can tell you with Tottenham when LeicesteR won the title in the way, they just imploded against Chelsea to give LeicesteR the title. It's just I don't know that always that was kind of the indelible moment of the season. For me Liverpool. Never had that you were. I mean, you guys were great pretty much throughout like you lost one game all season ninety seven points. I I don't know. I think that if you're a Liverpool fan today, you you kind of I don't just made as a cliche you you do hold your head high after that kind of season you remember this finally, even if it didn't give you the result you want it makes you look forward to next season. Yeah. Because they're not going anywhere. Who's leaving this team? No, an Klopp actually mentioned that who he's speaking discussion afterwards. John Barnes put a tomb that after thirteen fourteen. He never felt the team will come back and repeat. Neither today Suarez went out the door. Then startlingly at her. We let we hemorrhaged buyers. But this time Klopp says will no one none of our big players are going anywhere. We can consolidate he says he's not bringing in more players. No. He didn't say that. He said he's not bringing in any more big names. But it's going to be record breaker probably won't be, but he will try to tweak that some people may leave so make them in. But I feel more confident now of Liverpool's place amongst as the best team or the second best team in English football right now. I. Should I never felt that way before that's what this title Ronin has done for me. I just can't escape that feeling. I had in January where we can't. We can't afford to draw these games because city are dot good. No. And they're waddles are over. Now Liverpool are not the first team to lose just one game in a season and not when title in Europe's top five leagues Liverpool rail socio Dodd of seventy nine eighty and Torino in Syria in seventy six seventy seven. They also only lost one game and didn't win a title. There is one team that did not lose a game for an entire season. And did not win a title. Ooh. Gone seventy eight seventy nine Syria Perrugia. They drew nineteen of thirty games that they didn't. That's incredible. Lose is this. That's the most Italian thing. I've ever heard. Yeah. And that was the era the era of you have the ball for as long as you want midfield. We're just sit here. And wait till you give it up. Yeah. Pretty unbelievable. Yeah. I think you're right to feel good about Liverpool moving forward. I guess the thing that I would wonder about you say that they're not planning on bringing in any really big names. But I do think if record-breaking he said, okay because as they were talking about in senior, I think cloth has brought them back to a point. Now where we went through that kinda wobbly period. Like, you said with Suarez into like up through Cotino where Liverpool didn't necessarily feel like the destination club that maybe they had once been I feel like they are back to being that one. Yeah. Well, I think we're one of Europe's elite clubs consistently. No, I mean back to back years in Champions League final if a cop in two thousand sixteen as well on I feel as if Klopp has brought out a boat. There's also an atmosphere. I don't think a player isn't looking at Anfield on a night like Barcelona. Looking at that comeback. Or is everyone is obliged to say now that rim Totta. And and think I I want to be part of that. Yeah. Any of Europe stop players will want in the last ten seasons in Europe's top five leagues. Liverpool's ninety seven points are the most by a runner up Real Madrid had ninety six zero nine ten also a year where he were Real Madrid came up short to pep Guardiola when he was with Barcelona interesting. Yeah. You have anything else on Liverpool? Is that kind of it? I know we also you've you've really been stuck on the whole title race as a whole I on the way taking this as I'm taking this as a an artistic thing, here's Alan Shearer talking on BBC match of the day on I want you to listen to just some of the words, he uses I want you to react, you tell me it's been an unbelievable season from both city on from Liverpool. Best season we've out on the primitive since installed it in buck in nineteen Ninety-two what they've given us. Us has has been nothing short of pure entertainment. And it's been absolutely relentless. I mean, we said about seventy weeks ago. Just wait till the pressure combs the last couple of weeks of the season. Both teams have she'll none of the just one week after week after week, and it's just been incredible to watch. Well, one thing I would disagree with at the end there is when he says we asked, you know, the pressure's gonna come and how will they respond and they've showed none of that. I don't know if I fully agree with that. It took a thirty yard Vincent company blast to get past Leicester City, and it took a header from a Riga off kind of like a shoulder of Lascelles to get past Newcastle. So they're in the waning weeks of the season. There were a couple of moments where you could say, maybe maybe these teams are starting to feel the weight of this just a little bit. You want me to take the bait here on him saying that this was the greatest see the greatest huddle razors that what he's still. It's just that. He said, you know, what what did he say about about excitement? I think you've had this thing for the. Seven. Now, we're you artistic field this need to downplay what we've been witnessing, and I don't know why you're doing I know. I think just from pure point of view in terms of twists and turns to haven't been any what you need is a loss, you need someone to go to like a Lord team draw points than the other team to respond and maybe not do. So. Well, you need that that level of excitement. We'll right there twists and turns. What we've had is two powerhouses surging ahead. Right. That's what it's been an it's just it doesn't remind me. I think what's happened. Here is we've had even including the LeicesteR one. We've not had a tight race and starting fourteen like a genuine going to the last day. And I think what's happened is can you? I think all this not a title race. No. I said this is this. We've had on. I think that the fact that the Premier League which laws itself across the world is being the best league. In the world on often is portrayed are in the certainly in the media, as the most exciting has delivered upon that in the sense that we went to the final day Andre the last few years when we go onto the final day. We haven't. No. And that's the point. I think this is being sold as a exhilarating tight risk when it's being a title Rhys. I needed someone to lose a way on the road. And I needed someone to trip up and it never happened. But you didn't take any exhilaration in the patient of that possibly happen. Or just like my like Alan Shearer use the right word when he said relentless this. That's really what this was this. First thing is key grip. We kept talking about the mental strength of these teams fending off pressure while also competing in other competent, both went deep in the Champions League one is still playing and it was just like it was relentless the this win after win. Again. If you look at ninety four ninety five eleven twelve but man city thirteen fourteen Whitman city, again, there was just I felt like there was more down the stretch on like I said before I think the slips and the bumps in the road that we usually expect came very very early. Let's see maybe you know, what call it me a KOMO. And maybe I'm just whatever we'll look I get it doesn't make your coming at this from a perspective where you don't want this title race. To be memorable. Because you feel you're on the wrong side of history. Oh, I totally understand that I get it. But on the last day if Liverpool at one at least that would have been dramatic because city had one hand on the trophy that would have been dramatic. Now. Look if Liverpool one that I would be create its thing that ever happened to me. But that's that's got into the heart of it. No. But that's because you're breaking twenty nine year. No, I'm not no we weren't in it last season. I still told you, you know, tell you the Rhys whatever. Well, I mean what was the title race last season? There was more right? Let's see JJ couple of other things from the weekend. We gotta talk about Manchester United. Do do we. I mean, what just a the most feeble? You know, I was going back. I didn't actually watch that game because it just felt utterly meaningless to me. And boy did Manchester United treated as such. But there was one thing that I couldn't help look at the second goal that Cardiff scored. So like, your Paul PA and you're like one of the highest paid players in the world. I never mind that you're you're a footballer in a game stop with the money his his his willingness the ease with which he completely quits on a play. Oh, it's it was worse than that. It was the equivalent of. I know what I should be doing. So I'll make a little dart and literally halfway through the little dart. Now, I'm good can't be bothered cannot be bothered. The guy runs the ball straight into the box and centers for his team dot goal is entirely on Paul pod by I don't want to overreact to a. A single singular moment in mind United funds. Video. No, I didn't know at the Stretford end. So they're all doing their the clap to the Stretford end. Yeah. Pod. Was there with a short off on? This guy is screaming at him like an it's it's basically about levels that he's just not putting it in the fines Andrew that was so visible. Yeah. And and like I said I don't want to harp on a singular moment from again that didn't really matter against an opponent. That was like, whatever. But it was just hard for me to see that and envision him playing for Manchester. United next was jarring on. I got into it on on Twitter would friend of the pod we've outta Monaco times. Kristen Hannah who's good Royal very good on his point was United knew all this about Padre. Then you that? He didn't really track back for you've antecedent do extra why. But like at some point you stop talking about tactics physically beside you who's got a lien right to the goal. You see him and your marking him and you stop doing. 'cause you couldn't be bothered now that goes beyond systems that goes beyond anything else. That's just professionalism on its. I don't I mean, I'm sure there's their season ticket holders there that do not want to see him back at at Old Trafford. Never good. Oh, only social has a couple of quotes from the season that really made a lasting impact in my mind. One. We talked about earlier heading into the the second leg for Memphis United against Barcelona. When he said, we have a plan. It's a decent plan. Well, it's a plan at least after remember when he said that I remember thinking. Okay. Well, they're they're cooked. Well, how about this one from social shower the big plus is that the season is over and quote. Well, it wasn't quite the end of the quote, he said we can look forward. Now. All right. Well, yeah. I guess that's true. Yeah. But at this has been a painful crash landing the big, plus is that it's over is still not a way to begin a sentence that's going to inspire those around you like he did. He he qualified it by saying, you know, we can look forward and draw a line under the season. But but like that's just that. There isn't major surgery needed that we just need to get this out of the way, and he talked he went on then to talk about get our, fitness, right? Like he's obsessed with the fitness of the team, which is like must be the most the biggest slap in the face to Josie marine that this team is so not opted levels of fitness is incredible. And to Harare out the door. He had a wonderful leaving wonderful video to send say goodbye. Did you see it? No. I didn't. Oh, he's in his car. And it's mood music and flashing in front of him is goals against Yeovil town, everything he's done. Now. Look, he United fans will tell you. He at least put a shift in for them. You know, he worked hard. He was not and he was moved around to play all kinds of different positions are gonna back Percy put a two hundred plus appearances for them. Yeah. I could see that. Yep. Chelsea nil nil to end the season with LeicesteR. So they will finish they do wind up finishing third which boy there are portions of the season. Where like if you had told me during certain stretches that Chelsea will wind up third. I would've said really? Yeah. I've you the season with such an kind of negative cloud over them. But a third place finish for team that went through as much turmoil as they did with you know, Alvarez Murata was a total failure final Tacoma. Yeah. What a incr- like they can hate mercy. Oh, sorry. They may not love sorry ball. But. If I don't know if they wanna fire him is that is that justified with how this season wound up faring for them. I don't know that it really is. Now, it's gonna get difficult for them because they the rumor today it pretty much and we've been saying for weeks months, really that it feels like eating has aren't already has a foot out the door NBC S an tweeted that the deal is done and will be announced after the Europa league final today that was from their account. So I mean, I feel like that sounds about right? And also. A twenty look Andrew at twenty twenty eight he turned twenty nine in January in the middle of next season. Like he's got to make the move now. Just pure professional point of view. He's one leagues played exceptionally was for Chelsea. I don't think he owes the club anything on. It's probably good time for him to go because he waits another year. It's probably not going to happen. Yeah. Chris and sacked by Brighton. Four and a half years with the club. They didn't wait very long to do that day after now. Yeah. Now US a question if this is fair. Can I respond to that? You miss. It's that's really a tricky one in his situation here more than than many other firings that we've seen over the years with the exception of Ron Yary, which was fascinating that whole conversation. When he was Lester, I would say this about Hyun was he a victim of his own success. Because you know, I don't know how good Brighton ever really were. But at the end of December, remember, they they beat Everton, and they were eleven points clear of relegation. They were actually just three points shy of the top half of the table. Brighton. Were they ever really that? Good ever. That's a Mirage. And I wonder if Houston having done that if he almost trick people into thinking that Brighton were were something that they really weren't. You know, like I said they beat Everton near the end of the season. They play they. Lost. Just one nil to Manchester City in an FA Cup semi final. He got them to an FA Cup semifinal a day at Wembley for this club in a game or Tottenham had to win at the new stadium. They did. But Brighton pushed them right to the limit to do it in a game that arsenal had to win at the emerets Brighton actually got a point against them. So there are things you could look at and say, okay like was this really fair. But ultimately here was his problem for March thirtieth able twenty-third they played seven games. They lost six. They drew one. And they did not score a goal and in the one draw which was a nil nil against wolves. Which is good. I don't believe they even registered a shot on target. Now, the belief was that the problem that the owner who has an accident relationship with Chris Houston that the issue was that they had strengthened in terms of attacking players like Yang bash and that still it was on Len Murray shoulders to do the things that need to be doing the front of gold. What Huguenot dome was? Built a brilliant defense with Duncan doll fee. He'd also got a lot out of gross last season. Who did he he had the he had huge amount of assists in goals from midfield that didn't really replicate itself? He was he he suffered from injury this season to a so they fell away a little bit thing was it's not just about the bright and game where you simply combs four, Chris Heaton. The was new castle. Brought them back up. Got them promoted after relegation sacked Norwich. Got them promoted kept them up sacked. And then well, I know they went down. That's not he was sacked put still sacked as Premier League manager for knowledge. And then you add on this, and you feel as if has Kristian being treated fairly. It's a good question. The only thing I could think of is in looking at the way the season kind of ended for them when it seemed like they were clear of relegation, and they drag themselves back into the fight with how poorly they played a style in which they played. Maybe it doesn't feel fair right now. But I think Brighton. I think the board is actually making an attempt to be proactive here. Let's not wait for next season to begin and us to get off to some dreadful start. And now we got to throw in a manager who doesn't have his players. I think they want to just rip off that BanDai now bringing a manager who can make his kind of signings during the summer and really give themselves the best possible chance to start. Well next season. My worry is Andrew that. They wanted more talking football they wanted. I guess they probably saw some some other teams above the move into an you know, look at Crystal Palace. They probably wanted a bit more like a push towards that midtable and hold that midtable ground and not being relegated about and I do understand that because everyone wants to be in the primarily now with the money that's going around. But I would say I don't think he had the squad to do that a really don't even with the additions that they made I it leaves a bad taste my mouth. Well, he will work again. I feel he'll kind of be thrust into that. There's this category of manager like the Alan Pardew. The Mark Hughes's. I think he's better than those. He might be. But I feel like, you know, these managers who just you almost forget like, Tony Pulitzer. You almost forget where they even are, you know, they're managing somewhere. But it's just like they they're on that Mary go round. It'll be somewhat hard dad. Tater twelve mention our friend Alan Pardew in terms of the New England Revolution job. I mean, if we had access on a regular basis to house of pirates that will be amazing that that would be something. I look forward to that happening. Even though I doubt it will JJ. There's really only one way now for us to end the season. Okay. Gods? There's only one way that we can really end the season. And that is with your two thousand eighteen nineteen primarily true. I'm tired. I don't wanna do this. God. It's not about want. It's what you're going to do. It's what's happening. All right. So wrap your mind around. Here we go this keeper finished the season with twenty one clean sheets. Second most in the Premier League era. Edison. Allison, Allison Becker. Allison Becker since like, the main character of like a coming of age teen comedy like an attractive, girl and can't hardly wait. Amanda, beckett. Allison Becker what season he's had despite the couple of mistakes. Let's see this year. We had a three way tie for the golden boot winner with Monay Sala and a bombing. It's the first three way tie since ninety eight ninety nine when these three wanted Michael on. Yeah. Alan shearer. No, Michael, Owen, Paul school, Michael Owen? Andy cole. No, Michael Owen? Dwight your Michael Owen tweet your Galasso one is the tough one. What was the to me at the time leads Jimmy Floyd hospital back. There you go. That was a big hint one of the biggest ever stop. Let's see Tottenham finish the year with thirteen losses. That's the most for a top four teams since this club. Her teen losses. Finished in the top four Ipswich Town Everton four zero five Everton. Let's see a couple more here. JJ you're doing. This is respectable solid. Not amazing. But. On me. Well, what are you going to study? I mean, come on. No, it's all about humiliating me. There was one player from a non top six side that finished in the top ten in both goals and assists this season. Just one can you name that player James, Madison? No, good guess. But no. Oh, my missing. Goal, isn't assists. He's a striker not him in. If no good guests, though. Callum Wilson routine goals, which was nine and then nine assists, which was eight. Few more Vincent company joined an elite list this weekend. He's one of just three team captains to win four Premier League titles. Can you name the other two Roy Keane? Yeah. Frank lampard. No. But you're so close. Oh, John, Terry. Yeah. We'll give you full crap. Hard wasn't the captain John Terry was according to Octo only one player created one hundred goalscoring opportunities this season, and he played for a non top six side. Can you name the player? A hundred goalscoring opportunities. Yeah. I think I actually referenced him having a lot of these a few weeks ago. Maybe that was in my own head goal scoring opportunities. And he's he's not a top six top six club. But he probably he's on his way, maybe not this year. But oh my God. He's president shares a name with him an American president. That's what a hint. Madison. Oh, I just mentioned Madison. I didn't think you'd. Yeah. Okay. Madison. He didn't think I'd what what does that mean? How are you? Hurting this on. Let's see last one. I always think of the separation of church and state last one. Let's talk about dynamic duos JJ Frank Lampert assisted on twenty four DD drug buckles. That's the most in primarily history after them. There's a tie for second mcmanamon to Fowler an Anderton to sharing him both twenty goals with those duos then in third with eighteen assists for this. Player's goals. Is this duo who reached that number just this past weekend? Alexander Arnold to mow Tamani. No, no, no. It's not just for this season. I think it's in their career together. Oh, okay. I don't know David Silva, Sergio Aguayo. Will she felt like that one could ago that was forever? Oh, all right. That's incredible. Yeah. But it sounds about right, right? I mean, those two play together for a long time. They've been great for a long time almost the prize at it's they don't have a larger number than that money. Eighteen does seem small doesn't it. Do you ever look at people's assists after season and think I'm sure he was involved in women more than that? And then you think oh, well that is the assist is the final pass. Yeah. So there you go. We can really now close the book on the season with actually we really can't because we still have the divine Ling's our next podcast whenever that will be that will be our end of season awards spectacular every year. It's just an unbelievable events gallivant who's hosting this year. Billy, Billy, crystal can't do it. That's usually your go to old proud wants to us. It's like you respect that she kicked you out of the book club. Not a strong reader. I was thinking maybe we could convince Anderson Cooper to do it. He would just play it straight. I don't know if I can really envision him host, and he would just some sort of Zilly award show. No jokes. No frills. I would think more on the level of like, Tom green. Tom green. Bring him back. Sounds about our level. I'll tell you what we'll take a very quick break. When we come back. We still have a lot more. We've got a mail bag. We got a red card man of the match because we actually didn't do red card man of the match last week. I believe it's the first week in history where that hasn't happened. I wonder if why everything just went out the window on Wednesday evening, but yeah, still plenty more to do. Don't go anywhere. Back now on caught offside just a heads up for everybody. You've been great with your five stars for five years podcast reviews are are flying in. And I notice a lot of people aren't even leaving their memory. They're just we've just kind of getting them to now leave reviews, but in in as we've said an honor of our five year anniversary, which is kind of like being celebrated now throughout the next. Couple of months. I'd say we want you to give us a five star review on I tunes, and in there, a favorite memory of yours from the podcast. And we'll go back. We'll dig it up. I'll tell you this people have been leaving the the review that they want this EPL back more. So I did go. So I did go back the other day to find it to dust it all and I'll tell you this. I I started listening to it. And it just honestly it just elicits this like inner feeling from me where I just I tense up. It makes me so uncut. Trouble. I couldn't finish it. I had to stop it. I can't listen to myself do that to myself. I can't listen to it in full like the drop EPL back for more. I I actually can handle that. Now, the whole thing is just it's so long. I I I laughed so hard do you ever laugh so hard that you get a pain in your stomach and you start sweating? It's cream credible. I can't wait. That's gotta be. So I have that. I did find the w the first one that we do. Sure. Why not so everybody be on be on the lookout because sometime in the next week or so, yeah, we the two weeks when we start now really loading in at the end of the podcast with the memories that you guys have been submitting will start with that one. And we'll give the people what they want. Because like we said that was a while ago. And a lot of people who listen to podcast now have never heard it. They don't even really know what we're talking about right now. I wrote a song. Okay. Everyone to start a season to the tune of Billy Joel's. We start the fire to really get everyone excited about the season. And and and. You thought I was going to be involved in it. Well, but you will supposed to, but you went ahead and recorded it because I needed to know if the melody fit on it just became this thing on its own, and you refused to release it. Well, I promise because I 'cause fortunately for you. You have a podcast partner who is a very willing idiot. So I'm happy to play it and let everyone just to have a good good old laugh at my expense. I'm afraid people will crash cars people with that people really set themselves on fire. I don't know the people truly want to hear it. I think they saying that they want to hear it. But then when they start listening. They're just going to turn it off whether or not, well, no, they're not. Oh god. All right. Well, I'll allow it. Let's see JJ. You have some farewells that you would like to bestow upon. I've some some good buys it turned into a segment all of its own. Diego godin. Mid is last of his three hundred and eighty eight appearances of his nine year at letty career and Sunday making this the final time he'll play for Rojo Blanco. He was honored by capacity crowd who gave them a stunning vision. One of our listeners questioned whether he'd end up in MLS. That's not the place for defenders. Goodbye to football. Not just goodbye to a club goodbye to football for Robin van Persie. He received a substitute guard of honour from fan. Art. Much in the John Terry style. He received it from fine. Art, the opposition, Dan hag and the mosh officials in his final game at the Cape. Which was a little bit weird to see kind of nice and final word were roundly beaten two-nil. And the final goodbye from this segment is from Tim ways Instagram post to all my Celtic fans. I want to say thank you for all the undying support. You have given me throat my time with Celtic I will be joining my national team to participate in the under twenty World Cup and Poland with this decision. The gaffer told me that it is in the best interest of the team that I collect my things and go home rather than be part of the game on Sunday that was the Old Firm. So I'll be on my way. That's the one. I really wanna talk about not sends a country music song. He told me to Pat, but things and get on my way. Grassley it with her sister. Do you know what I mean? Like, it's a very. He's thanking the fans in the most fugitive way possible. Earn things don't seem thrilled with the manager know if I'm Celtic fan, I'm not thrilled with the manager an accommodation had been come to that. He would you know? Goal prepare with the US team. Then come back for the Cup. Final. On and. That accommodation. You know, it didn't seem to work out. And so prior tune in a huge from Darby. That's it. It's it's over. He doesn't you know? He doesn't get to play in the Old Firm Darby and just be a part of the part of any of it. An he I'm sorry sixteen appearances four goals. I thought he'd have more, but he's been used very sparingly by particularly by Neilan. And certainly by Brendan Rodgers too, but he helped win this championship. And now he's leaving. I'm hoping he'd get his medal, but he won't be around for the celebrations glaze nineteen. He deserves this. I don't know why kneeland and had to boot him out. Yeah. You're right. Right. It almost feels like there's something we don't know here. There's a there's a rottie for site article for the telegraph, Google Roddy for Saif, Tim way, and it talked about it has some quotes from way about how pumped he was for the Old Firm derby and how he hoped he'd play on. How psyche was to be part of this team. It's just I don't know. It seems very capricious. Yeah. It it's an unfortunate ending to what was kind of a fun little loan spell for him. I mean, I remember in the beginning of it. He's coming in as a sub scorn these great goals. Yeah. This is a bit of a disappointing way for that to for that time to have ended. So. Yeah. So yeah. I feel sad. Let's see JJ. You've got a male back in just a second. But before that happens. I want to tell you about ZipRecruiter known tell Brighton of ZipRecruiter. Yeah. I guess they need to know.

So I said no guys got away the little while. I can't I can't do who. Do you think? Such and such player will come to such and such a team when I couldn't do it Machu law dice or low DJ Kim Basinger passenger Sam Ellard Dietschy don't know how to say it. Sorry mon-, Matt dear jen's. So after a few minutes of standing behind the gentlemen in line at japodlay like launch play. This afternoon. I look up from my phone and towards the counter just as I'm looking up to the counter the gentlemen, moved his phone to the right into my line of vision. And what do I see he has the podcast up on his phone? Oh, amazing. He also has his ear buds in. I wanted to tap him on the shoulder and talk soccer slash the pod. Maybe ask him if he's JJ or an Andy. But I stopped myself not wanting to interrupt his launch Zan, and or come across as more of a creeper. What is the correct protocol here? A couple of good friendships have started by randomly talking soccer. So I'm always eager to connect with the people over the game. Andrew what is the protocol? Always tap them on the shoulder. In fact, I actually go a step further. I assume that anyone with your buds on the street is listening to caught off side. So I would tap anyone on the shoulder that has ear buds on. And just say is that caught offside? You're listening to get a win for me. You never the the response is always. Yes, why? Yes, it is. Let's be friends. Also. Awesome. So all was always tap that person on the shoulder. Perfect antle. Hi, guys. Listen to you real quick. You know, what the weird the weird thing about this? Now, though is the guy who was listening to it. Obviously listens to our podcast and hill. Now, probably know like how many people were listening to caught offside while they were in a Chipotle recently. So he'll probably be listening to this episode. And that was me. So maybe you guys need to. Here's what you need to do the two of you. We're gonna start a friendship I want you both to go back to that Chipotle lay. This you pull a like, oh, it's not a Chipotle as poll they like, so sometimes what does that even mean burrito based emporium go back to whatever burrito based emporium? You were at this Friday at six o'clock, and I want you to stand and wait they're doing, and you two will meet and you'll become friends either that or it's the prelude to an episode of cereal won't talks about the podcast murderer. Who's kill? What do you like soccer? I think I just created a friendship. All right, go to your burrito. Spot onto a hi guys. Listen t- from cork cork city in Ireland the real capital. He would really want to clarify if you're the same as caught offside the website Laffy face. We have said that a lot, and we are not my question is what steps can Liverpool take to improve going forward. It seems like they couldn't have played any better this year by the whig that it went to versus west time. I team fourteen players are strong as anyone in Europe. What are they lacking Gomez? An ox are returning and they are surely authored offloading star Jim Marino, which will give some salary room. Thanks good. Question onto. I don't know. And they're not lacking anything not. I mean, not really I think I think centre midfield. I think we need another some sentiment figure. I do think that I think we also need to clarify what exactly Shaquir status statuses was he missing most of the season. I suspect because he has been struggling with a groin injury. Will he want to stay? If it's going to be limited minutes. What happens there an storage goals who on earth? Do we do we replace them with that's going to want that kind of role? What to do with a regency? I don't know those are some questions now that I really don't know an Antle. I have not answered your question. But thank you for listening, Wayne Andrews is asking about last week's dramatic night. Amsterdam Andrew, how do you feel that Mora was the hero a nut? Cain fine. Totally fine. I mean, yeah, I guess for if you're scripting the movie here then. Yeah. Harry Kane is the likely protagonist. But. Like, I don't care who cares. In no way, affects effected my a what a moment. But I wish it was Cain. Like, no one did that I'm sorry that Valdimir meter score that goal again. Yeah. He hasn't been consistent enough to get such an honor completely fine with by the way. Lucas Moore is good. He is good. And he's like he was EPL player of the month for the first month of the season. He scored the goal for Tottenham against Barcelona to get them into the group stage. Like he he did have a hat trick a few weeks back in the league. Yeah. So he's not just some like random guy. And there's also a little bit of an irony which you reference that he's he's also this club known for not signing in one. He's there last signing from January of eighteen so yeah, I don't know I'm fine with him playing the role of hero on on a game. Like that. This is a huge question. This guy drew needs guidance drew from Louisville. Love the pod. And couldn't wait for the post UCLA semi final matchups won't to hear your reactions. That was great. I discovered after the Liverpool match that I have to go to a wedding that happens during the final. Should I watch it inside Lance on my phone from where I'm sitting or do or do I go the Andy route record wait until later and the whole pray that I don't see anything that gives it away. I am traveling for this wedding and won't get to see the recording until the following night. Thanks, guys. Keep doing grit stuff in the pod. I give five stars on the app store. And I want to hear Andy's. I rap EPL back for Moore's all it's not a rat back the more. Anyway, look if it were me you can't go to who's wedding. It is but you can't go to a wedding and sit in the corner and look at your phone. Why can't you? All right. You can you. Absolutely. Can't nothing happens. Nothing happens in a way to games at three. What do you think he is going to put a rabbit? Oh to be from behind the altered today. There's going to be like a light show or something. It's going to be two people reading out. Terrible vows that they both thought were headings are Hardee's, right people dance and eat. Socialize and have fun matches or what ninety minutes long he can get away with possibly in this case one twenty if longer than that, it might kill me. I can't I will not be able to physically handle penalties. I watched Spurs on Manchester United adult Trafford during awaiting right in the middle of that wedding. I it was the reception mind, you and dinner, whatever. But I watched it I would strongly consider the DVR method. But this is a tough one because it's a final and that is a really difficult score to I would say don't go to the wedding. All right. Well, it's good to see the JJ taking the serious. No. I am don't go to the wedding. So things a more import. What's your next question? Now what you're not taking it seriously. That's not an option. He's already got a plane ticket. He said right, go, get diarrhea, stay in your hotel room. Boom. Father. Biff here is an American brand question it solo on the pitch. It must be near impossible for managers to get their players exactly where they want them at times. Two players have memorized plays. They're on has anyone ever you sideline. Touchline play cards such as those used in college football. You know, the ones I'm talking about right? Yeah. We're have lots of stairs picture of like, you know, pacman writing. Sure, sure. Sure just thinking that for set pieces. It would help issue specific directions, especially in a match when things get frenetic. Honestly, no soccer is much more free form and set pieces. Guys know the drill on a corner. Kick going put up his right hand drop it down to his left thigh or right knee or something like that to signal on an most guys know the players to going to run when a guy sets up in a certain way at soccer is not a set piece based game. Like that biff, but I will say this. When Marino started out, a Chelsea he did use to give a pieces of paper to substitutes are two players who were coming on which will be handed to another player. Woods instructions that happened. That's still happens. I'm sure on it. Hey, jay. JJ Andrew listener from West Bengal, India. Nice. It was good to hear that intro from both of you being absolutely delirious with joy. That's the last week's pod. You guys have come a long way from that Trinidad and Tobago tobacco. Which was the first time. I listened to you now as a Barsa fine. It hasn't been easy. You know, getting knocked out two years in a role in the same embarrassing manner. But this one has given me a pain. I haven't experienced since the two thousand fourteen World Cup. This team was better was well rested. And was mentally motivated. A so I thought it was to win it all this year. Truth is this team has the highest wage Bill in Europe hides behind that one man whenever it gets tough without embarking on a definitely doesn't win anything in these last two years in between my crying sessions over the last couple of days. I want to congratulate you both best of luck for the league JJ hope they win it. They didn't. And it will be rooting for Spurs. The Andy in the UCLA. Thank you. I will recover hopefully soon enough and be mentally prepared for another heartbreak in the summer with Argentina life of a football fan. Keep up the good work much, phony est moment from the podcast has to be where JJ introduces people to the caucus Champions League. Saw. All right. Oh my God. We've got a few hair. I'm going to have to. Raim soem their response. Is it really? All right. Let me trim some here. Sorry, guys. Let's go for this one. Hey Zeus in Sonate us. I know Andrew's answer for this. But JJ which buzzer beater is better Koi. Leonard are Lucas Mora. I say more by a million times grip pod dome with the other soccer podcasts. Morris for me because I'm a soccer fan. And and the way it was a really good move. It's lumped forward there's a deft touch by one player unders just another deft Cam pass and a really cool finished. Here's why honestly removing bias. Here's why I do believe the answer is Lucas Mora. What happens if Kawhi Leonard misses that shot the game goes to overtime? What happens if Lucas more misses that goal tempt taught them they lose. I think that adds a little something to it yet. That's fair. Someone said it hopped on the rim like the it was unbelievable. Like Virgil Van Dyke. Let's move on. I don't need to relive this. No, the version Van Dyke volley against Everton, you all the way it hops. I remember all but if Pickford was there he would have been goaltending. Right. That's the rules. If you went to touch that Ono if it hops up it. All right, hops on the rim and someone's max it while it's still within the cylinder. The basket. It would have been golden. All right. Is that it? Yup. All right. Sorry. I missed a few guys but were running over. Let's see let's do this red card. I'm gonna go. I JJ my red card goes to Zafy not the player not the player the British retail company, which is a company I never heard of. But I saw this at pro soccer talk dot com. So I'll give Joe prince Wright in them all the credit. I'm reading now directly from the articles AVI ran a competition for a trip to Madrid for the Champions League final complete with flights hotel. Accommodations, two tickets to the game and cash to spend amazing with two primarily sides reaching the final for the first time ever. That's not true. But that was in the article. Yeah excites. United United in two thousand and eight first time ten year oversight. I'm sorry large children's right? Let's. To Premier Li sides reaching the final. There was heightened interest in the competition domestically with fans of both sides hoping to secure a dream trip to watch their team compete. Unfortunately, a technical error led to every single participant receiving an Email indicating that they had won the problem. My God, it's the worst nightmare every single person believed they had one zombie tweeted an apology, which said apologies, we're aware of a problem regarding the recent MasterCard competition, we seem to have had some technical issues, and we're currently looking into this. Then this we're extremely sorry. To have got. Our loyal customers hopes up a spokesperson for zombie told the Liverpool echo, however, due to human error a mistake was made with our mail out. And unfortunately, there's only one winner of the tickets, obviously, I'm sure they didn't people can actually believe that everyone was going to win MasterCard. The sponsor of the competition who were on sadly dragged into this in the statement made by zombie. They said we're extremely disappointed with today's events in our sympathies. Go to the many people who are wrongly contacted by zombie in connection to their competition. We have asked zombie to clarify how they are resolving as a matter of urgency. What a may sick that MasterCards. Avi relationship is probably a little bit fraught right now, by the way, I'll tell you. What's fraud the Europa league final the airport in Baku accommodation tickets? We'll get we have time to get into the conversation about ticket allotments things like that. It's going to mess as well. Yeah. This is all I mean Zafy there's is particularly glaring error. But everything surrounding these finals just seems to be horribly mismanaged my red card Andrew can you transport me back to Maine Road? Manchester. Nineteen Ninety-six, please. I'm sure we'll lists work. Doc. Are you telling me that you built a time machine? All right. Let's hop in. Okay. Perfect. You may have noticed misinformation going around field on Saturday. Sudden pockets of fans cheering a goal Brighton. Even before the actual goal at Brighton yet because of social media and spit screens, we could tell pretty quickly that nobody at scored at Brighton. Well, in nineteen Ninety-six the relegation battle went down to the final day. A Manchester City were playing Liverpool needing results to go. The way of the blue moon rising to stay up a supporter with a radio on the stands at may enrolled, relayed the information that relegation rivals. Southampton were losing that all city needed was a drawl, so captain, Steve Lomas. Started running the ball into the coroner to try and run down the clock until recently substituted. Nial Quinn came running down to tunnel to the field to tell city that they needed another goal. Even with this realization, it was too late for city as the clock did run out, and they fell to the relegation trap door. This is them talking about it. It. Gary Lineker deadline him on a much of the day. That was something. We noticed in that game where they were playing for time at the end, which was rather difficult to understand. Yeah. I think he the number of occasions. His a freaky. This five minutes to go. The school is to to now. Obviously some information reached the field because low mass gets the ball and keeps it in the corner lot you do when you go up and you just trying to cling on thinks the doors. Okay. Well, I think this is support in the crowd. That's probably a Coventry new shouts it. Don't worry leads a thrill. Oh, man. Sadly, this is one of those things that's hilarious and can never happen. Again. No technology has just fixed this. But like this isn't I'm not going back to the nineteen eighties. Pre-primary? This is the primarily. This is Liverpool. Pay Manchester City on the final day of the season. How can a manager blithely? God reston Allen, bald blithely take that information and give it to his captain. So you're going to be fine. Who told you that going to stand clearly not a journalist always need a second source really a third source or more, by the way, isn't it brilliant that I phoned man city red card this week your bitterness knows no bounds. I went back in time to get caught off sides man of the match JJ four my man of the match this week. We have a. It's time. But boy. A christian. Really? Is this the day we retire? Boy wonder watch why it's not about his team. It's about his age saying he's too old to be a boy wonder, well, he's about to move club in a major move. Right. And he's saying goodbye to the things of his teenage past. All right. Yeah. If you want to make it a young adult watch, I'm fine with that JJ lake you're referencing. This was his final home game for Borussia Dortmund. And of course, a flair for the dramatic. He did this. Chip it. Could be. And game of massive importance for Dortmund as well. They did go onto win three two. They were a wild stoppage-time. And and the whole conclusion of the game was was kind of nuts, but they did win it for tuna Mr. penalty to. Yeah. As bad as you see guys like Jason punch bag. No, not in terms of power in terms of elaborate, stop-start run-up Fomin angle Zaza. No, not the high knees. Like more the more the run at the angle almost like almost like he's had a few drinks. Stop start. Send the keeper the wrong way drag your penalty, white always and well, but yeah, Dortmund did go on to win and bar Munich. Drew nil nil which means that the title the tunnel race will go down to the final week Uniqlo chance to end it now Munich have untracked Frankford at home, which is tricky, but Borussia Dortmund who. If you see the mistake of Chagall keeper for letting Indy the equalizer for Fortuna, you would be like, oh, boy, they've got they've gotta travel too much back and forth at the moment. This could be grace could be really. Yeah. It really could. However, this was a boy wonder watch for men in the Mets I'll stay with him for Seki was honored before the game by the club. Which was really nice ceremony of which said this afterwards. He said quote before was honestly, the hardest part. They gave me a little ceremony. And it hit me when I was walking to the locker room. It was really emotional. My last time it was not easy. This game gave him two goals in a week during like we said a critical time endorphin season. And I think it's nice to kind of ensures that he'll be remembered fondly by the club where he really came of age not to say that he wouldn't have been, but he's going out on a high, which I think will always kind of leave a positive memory in the minds of of Dortmund as a nice, then they look so special that stadiums. In terms of his best moment with the club. I would probably have to say he was eighteen years old. So he still kind of becoming tool a sick at that point second leg round of sixteen in the Champions League against Ben. Fica? It's one one on aggregate second half. When people sick does this. Looking. King. The second. Chris with them through in the Champions League, Christian pool. Sick bombing did go onto a couple more to make the scoreline look worse than it was. But it was tight and Beulah sick. He was fantastic all game, and he wound up with the winning goal in the Champions League, man. That was a huge moment for him. It was a good was a good run for him at Bruges Dortmund. Hopefully, they've set him on his way. Now where he can he may do something this weekend for them may not be at the violence. Taddeo was this could be big. He may go sign off with a third successive match on the scoresheet, but this was his last home game. So I wanted to honor him properly in a dignified manner. There's no more dignified manner than getting a man of the match on this podcast. It's cherished member. What do you have my man of the match is a championship action which enjoyed on Saturday jump ship playoffs. Are finely poised going into second leg as villa and leads take one goal leads into those second legs villa will go to West Brom where. Whereas leads we'll go back home to at enroll to fascinating ties would derby with the derby rather between villa? I'm West Brom Avila park being the pick of the bunch the equalizer from Connor Horan an Irishman was an absolute beauty right in front of the hold end. And it had kind of old school roar that we all love when it hits the net. Well. NYC graduate Jack Harrison setup Kamara root for leads only gold versus his former team it Frank Lampard who's manager. Of course of Derby County, also hire some was involved in a penalty incident where Craig Paulson allowed his original decision for penalty to be overruled by the suppose, the advice of his linesman. Those are always controversial. Yeah. Yeah. That was that was that cost consternation amongst fans. I don't think it was a penalty. But it it takes a lot to go to your linesmen and agree with what he's well for him to disagree with you. And for you to go with it. So those second legs tomorrow West Brom for villa at the hawthorns and then Wednesday at Elland Road legionnaires Derby County wound goal. Yeah. Separating both these ties is no wiggles. Yeah. I know high stakes indeed Andrew that should be fun that should make some for some nice. Time viewing by the way. You mentioned there Juerg Darby. So you know, how I know my American brain may slowly be European ising or really so there was this thing at the Meadowlands racetrack this past week all the sports casters derby, right? But like this was all going on in the thick of just like soccer madness here. And I just kept seeing it, and I kept telling people like of do know about this thing. The sportscasters Darby kept calling it a Darby. I feel like I'm gonna start saying the Kentucky Darby instead of derby. Yeah. I feel like that's the first step. You can the next step is if you start deliberately mispronouncing EPs, which in the fashion of Marcelo Bielsa his press conference couple of weeks ago. It was it was hilarious. He. Four times the interpreter said it, which is which and then he just gave up triplets. He just wanted to chip which they're fantastic. Wouldn't will? Hey, this was fun. It was fun. I guess now we got gotta start mounting are are awards for the divine links. Yeah, we have to get onto our Seattle. I or because they are platinum as they should be can you please try and talk to Billy crystal's people. He's not interested. All right. Hey, if you had to get a presenter. I told you Tom green. Hey, this was fun, my friend. We will be back. Of course, remember to keep leaving your five stars for five years reviews. We really appreciate them, and we'll get those memories cranking out sometime in the next week or so the special I swear I will do it to you. I say PL back. The more have a good one, my friend taker.

Everybody tried to destroy that building survived survived everything and it still going to survive. Let's face it. It's still gonna survive as of this morning. We've lost some very very important parts of that building. But it's still going to survive. I'm sure they will they will rebuild tragic nonetheless.

I am bold between primarily games to sit. Beside the mighty Mississippi. And that was just genuinely humbled by the industrial history that seeps right through the town kind of forged. And we learn on stage is forged a patent of singular creativity emerging from that city. Obviously, the mighty prints who you love and the song in particular that we thought about refers asses off sometimes it snows in April. But it seems to slow in April every year he wants as we arrived in April. I mean for me the replacement husker day all the sound that came and Slocombe atmosphere, and our interview talked about it about the approach to life and culture their cost the true pay offs and big dreams of self sabotaging failure. I am drawn to them. I respect Minnesota spa. Sports for big dreams. And heartbreak Everton football club play down on a statewide basis. The Vikings all pro safety Harrison Smith talked about I was us. The impassioned more than a thing the footballing history. They started with the kicks in the which we love David. We love we love the NFL. We love the kicks, particularly the kicks because of their name the kicks, not more. That was a long marketing meeting that they had come with the name. We were short one. Sanga? What is the sucker Milwaukee? They do they kick the ball with their feet. Wait a minute. Let me stop you. You said Tim think is radically important. Yeah. What are we gonna go team? They were like, let's keep brainstorming. I'd love to know what they would if you were in that meeting. Tell us the names they reject him for the that does the head is that I love the idea of the of ice hockey teams being called the slapshots or football teams being called the throws the poughkeepsie passes to literary or NFL teams. They became the thunder. When indoors it became the stars in the minor league. Now, Minnesota United that fan base. The dark clouds the true north elite who we pre-game with oh, though to fans more Jin them on their supports Harris won the wall. So steep so loud. It was like winter felt that they castle was first opened by the stocks. I will raise my bird. So you Minnesota you are the true kings of the new just say that we've. Critical of all of these MLS teams calling themselves United f c but there is something about the would United actually completely and utterly applies. Some of these teams that Lantis certainly Minnesota United. It is so United behind Saint Paul, and yes, and the whole state is so United behind that team and very exciting with their new stadium slash nightclub. Wednesdays though, guys more Wednesdays and also Chicago, if you're listening ghosting just re-embrace this thing, we love to stay streets glorious, so good. We're going again. No, dave. It's going to be another special night wrote the sixth annual gold, Malaysia, it's going down all going down. Wednesday may twenty second at the school center for the performing arts in New York City. It is going to be one for the ages rush. Tickets available at many blazes dot com. Proceeds from this year show will again, go to hope for the warriors. We do so much chatter com. Join us for an evening of. Ahah pie. Ansong? We absolutely cannot wait. That's just say we talk about shows a lot. We've had so much joy onstage this golden blaze up. The lineup is all I can tell you the point together is going to be a night. Onate s- of wonder come be with us because golden blazer let's face it. It's the wrestlemainia of the men in blazers live events grave thinking, oh, maybe one golden blade who we should do in battle royale format where we get like only American great Costas in the ring. And then see us left at the end. You definitely be when they went. What is what is growing into a really really, I'm genuinely filled with joy, but a footballing culture that's forged behind. And they're not no vote now for on the award which we are taking so bloody seriously the American player of the year award. The Premier League award for the play. Who is most thrilled you we can morning in an hour over the season trophy is being smelted Roby must doing tree pose working on the tree post. But the leg keeps nothing off the let's be this is the primary who has most thrilled Americans to wrecked. It is. And that's very very important. There's player via voted by the players in the Premier League. There's a player of the voted by the sports writers in England. I'm interested to see if the American player is different in that. It has a different has a different aspects of his character or personality that uniquely appeal to Americans we'll say the votes have pouring in costing a small fortune. We keep having to extend the Bamut of the voting contest is tell joy, we're looking also for the phone for American American player of the year. This is important the American who is most thrills. You the American player who has most thrill of the three of played in the league season. Yeah. And the nominees are well. It's the Andrea yet yet Pele throw ins yet mazing, Tim rain, nothing can get past the pump from something. And then I watched lettuce failed gates. Gates, tilt them fantastic. I looked at purely through the guys of the American American play the because the ninety th minute this fill Paul Danny Williams played the last thirty seconds of the game. Did not kick the ball nor did the ball come close him. But I looked at his fifth appearance of the year may impact. Oh, no. Which he didn't. Will impact the vote for very willing to change it in his favor because he looked good when he came on under the board chewing looking medicine. Good good. So we just we do not denigrate the the history of American Americans in the NATO, and in some ways, we're laying down this marker this year because starting next year a lot more Americans once again rally CPI going to be playing for Chelsea hopefully as long the series coach, and we're building equity in the American America the for the future, it's going to be this. I look forward to the day. And I'll say this now, and let's clip this quote. So the in years to commit will come true, and I will weep when that comes to a hope to be alive when this comes true 'cause we ping when dead less satisfying. When the American player of the year is a woolen the same as the American American player. The oh, I thought you were going to different direction what I'm gonna like I call until. I'm dead until. The icon wait until the until the Senegalese equivalent of men in blazers it might be it might be the Senegalese duo who've bought the many blazers franchise in Senegal and other parts of west Africa where they not only vote for these Senegalese player of the year. But we we hear that. They're also doing the Senegalese Senegalese player when every nation in the world decide to that. I love forward to that. But I do forward to the day that the American American play of the is the same as the American plan. The the best player in the primarily is in American to get to a point where we retired the American American PLO the because it becomes redundant dynasty, an American dynasty rocking rolling Christian politic's children. We'll just be destroying chemists playing just front choice playing under an American coach team in an American team in. A future people Fresno United, okay, Raj. We've got a packed show. We're going to the title race that set English football alight. We break down the Lucas Moore Hatteras that the whole world saw coming and we dive into the murky depths of the relegation zone where those lucky enough to have a fighting tooth and nail for survival. Plus the N W S L kicks off at seven season. That's the football, Raj. Let's go with the toast. I'm bird level of grief. I get for the big head. We were to buy the book brew and Saint Louis, exactly. How to pour it. I love to wear beer as a toast. You ps? Won't raise. Third the day. Would you did so much every human being who's totally bowling or really into mock turtlenecks on Sunday? I'm not a Tiga fan to be clear. I'm a curator Chiappa born right kinda guy. But tiger to me is a gentleman who was flown to close to the sun, not the first and he won't be the last, but why Meyer is the bottomed out, and then some misc- after Miskar surgery after surgery prescription painkillers in the full public. And when you do that human Innis, typically occurs, and guests lawn celebrity rehab is kind of you next best thing that you aging can get you. But telling you he kept tattoo, whether the long shameful lack of form on tour, the chronic pain lived, a long long time as a cushion retail. And then somehow snot something deep within himself, the performance of demi-god, Vince Lombardi you want said, I've always loved this. Oh, but I always thought it was a cliche said, the real glory is being knocked to your knees. And then coming back, and I always thought that was a sporting cliche Tiga lifted out at the weekend. And it was inspirational humanly magnificence a witness a raise my bird fan blood fan to what we will shed in. What GM will awesome Venga once told me is the one common quality in every hyper successful person in life today to Tigers tennis ity as defined by awesome, Venga stamina in new motivation. I have to just put a little asterisk to that very conflicted thoughts as you do about. Tiger woods. His talent is just staggering his ability to play against the best place in the world. And just make them look average. He came from behind beat some of the best gophers in the world inform on an incredibly difficult Gulf Coast of courses Gulf Coast is dominated before. And yeah, you're right. He did get back from his knees. He did respond to adversity, but I would posit that this adverse. Was all self caused her. Yeah. I'm what makes me a sort of doubt that sort of this story line of all let's just like give him this amazing plaudits for like bouncing back at the point that eleven years since he won his his major championship. What could he have done as a champion over the last eleven years had he not done this to himself? And I know people say all the injuries he wasn't responsible for those kinda was like staying fit as a professional is a pretty huge thing. He built himself. Huge kept on changing his swing and so it, yes. Still credit for being an amazing gulford coming back. But honestly, I was left thinking at the point that he was putting on that green jacket yet again is what we've missed from him and what he took away from himself over the last eleven years. He's very tough to go to a kid for me. I've got a who plays goal from the sun who enjoys watching the masters very tough me to look at that champion. And this is so weird because he's so good and say, you know, they're a great life lessons that you can go and take from this person. I know cinema dark. I agree. I could not do. Ultimately is life. Life and life is a human dauntless. Just enjoy the now. Anyway, let's start with the game of horse that is the primarily title one in which mantis city livable both refused. Miss shots. We're going to do this chronologically and begin early Sunday morning city kicked off first and had the chance to heat pressure on livable who played later that morning that fending champs did just that defeating Crystal Palace three one at Selhurst Park Rogers. We set on the TV show yesterday. This team has given city problems especially recently that three two defeat over the Christmas new year period, but a razz double A Gabriel Jason goal. See city scoop all three points despite a late Luca Milovanovic free kick, always broadening his horizons. He's going for free kicks as well. Just the penalty that made things slightly nervous in the end city continue the imperious Premier League form. Yeah. I mean, not three to win the have the most joyful moon the seat towns. Townsend goal all the enough they palace. We talk about the bad path Selhurst Park been better on the road at home this season. So it was on this day when frankly they're all too, easy to control and disposal by munch Esther city who needed a win after that surprise, but overcome one they'll champions the first leg loss Tottenham, and they got a win courtesy of a finishing clinic. On by Ryan still. I came a reversion to old rows Dave city began with purring they're worrying that probing razz served up with an open goal for post from brick shea rangy. Instead, what did he do David? He kind of scuffed it pulled it wide with his left foot and left with his head in his hands came playing one of his class. Tickets as a young still in tribute band. Bobbled echinacea only wide and in the past young razzed would have finished his game. That would have been just front rows mind but palace setting up to soak up pressure and hope they could Nick something with may be falling over and set Neff Milivoy which penalty they came undone a one of the rare for four he didn't fall forward against city. They wanna free kicking dangerous area. They over committed and one city reclaimed the bull found its way to Katie bay. A man who would later call supernatural warpath. He puts a ball through to rows galloping amazing in part of me. I was wondering sort of an equal parts at the quality of the long passed. Just hit such superb speed in slow motion. You even what razz look at it and say, wait a minute. I'm going to catch up to the school. Wait a minute. No. I don't because it is bloody perfect. The bull can show razz over. Controllable almost it was just so so perfect rouses touch was also perfect. I was also marveling at the quality of the cell has park pitch that this late in the season this pitches. Just looking so good that it was that true for that ball. But it was that was a wonderful wonderful. Pas I said on the television show that the proton torpedo Luke Skywalker sent down the death star's firmly exhaust poor I love that. It's one of your analogies that I actually understood that was less precise KDB's pass and Raza again as a young pretend the razz he would have only at that maleness mind would have blasted the ball into the Thames razz two point zero. He had confidence he had to honor the perfection of that pass and his finished his first touch was matched only by the quality of the finish. But was a man you look at Manu now is able to overcome adversity and miss chances. Calmly confidently joyously thunderously any smash the ball me grab a second. Love. This finish is seventeenth goal of the season. A moment of sublime through and action. Why human wonder is to watch? Now, David I think we'll talk about this is someone that I think you can point to two kids watching the Premier League and say, here's a sporting hero. His somebody who's become a hero both on and off the pitch is dealt with more adversity than almost anyone. I think it's remarkable what he's doing. I love watching him play football. Honestly, I we've always struggled with city. I find delight delight in watching rain, sterling play football. And you know throughout this game. You know, I'm a big palace fan. I I love watching them play football. I've seen palace really match up. Very well, not any city in the season begins a lot of sides city took them apart. They took apart. They looked like they could score again. And again, and again, and again repel also didn't really come on them physically and city could escort again. And again, a lot more Kuna Garrick slightly limping throughout this game. A word on wras. We'll say I adore him. A man who. Overcome all hate all of it. Almost channel of hate and used it as leverage internally motivation, and he's emerged from the crucible of pressure. And the media really really writing essay joyously lethal footballer impacting Manchester City's biggest games on the field and acting as a singularly powerful voice for change. Your fate is really exercising voice right now. And it's amazing to see. We'll talk about that -solutely more in this podcast. I find him genuinely inspirational also inspirational Manchester City twelve wins thirteen league games played into thousand nineteen that is winning so much dominantly. We talked about that with Spain in two thousand ten World Cup. David will become inured by repetition and its monotony because they are so dominant. They constrict their opponent like python to mating to witness just the potency in the lethal nature. The app. Also, boring because it takes away the suspense the anything can happen that you, and let's not forget they maintain a one point advantage assuming that they win. They win that game. In traffic. Another got some tough fixtures to calm against Tottenham and against Man United. But that favorites in both of those games without a doubt. And they have the ability. No doubt about it to be perfect coming in the rest of the season as we said city jumped temporarily back in front of livable with club small set to face. Their toughest test on should have been of the running Chelsea football club in the eleven thirty AM eastern time kick of after a nip and tuck first half livable. I on fifty minutes when saudi-omani elevated like a Senegalese Janice to head home a pinpoint Endo cross. Most Saleh added a second one hundred forty seconds later goal of the season contended that sent the Anfield faithful into raptures Liverpool held onto win at nil maintain their two point lead on city. They've played one more game. It's all smiles very toothy super white bleach. Smiles Roach on the red half of Mosey size saying. Tiger. When the most this huge weekend for whereas red canes Chelsea team. Should we have not lost to Anfield since two thousand twelve hooping for repeat of Stevie? Jeez. Darkest hour the April two thousand fourteen game in which Brendan Rodgers livable top of the table within eleven game winning streak. So that title challenge begin to go to smoke in the cruellest most horn of ways as well as the thirtieth anniversary of the horror of hills brand the savage fight for Justice for the ninety six by the victims families in shooed. Chelsea entered they'd want three in a row of big game for them to in the race for the top four. They saw to play. The baby's leash all double barrel names. But from the off setup regard action same strategy, the used to be Manchester City seating possession, looking to still a chance on the break. If Liverpool over expose themselves, very unsettling tactics. David, you're right. This was like the man city game at Stanford bridge earlier in the season when they when they did them at home, and they did set up a little bit in the first half grow. Yeah. But with some notable changes in lineup, and I think oh poor Hudson doing pull Hudson door like shh put into the starting lineup. All seasons way too. It's not like they blow them with a few five minute. Ten minute fifty minute substitute appearances to get into it. Sarah just seems has responded to pressure because he's been barris because this guy has been picked fring those been amazing in the in the Europa league games puts him now and starts him at Anfield in a game was played start. They aspired start again. Would you couldn't show any of his Marino? Like it was Marino. Told you this game for fighters. Not lovers. Yeah. This is a game for Dave never Latin. The magic never backed off. Tactically Fowley when needed to Hudson the door. This was not the game in which you blood them unless you really show him who's outside. Look, I think Ruben left his cheek had a better game and Callum Hudson dawn, and he's he's sort of has a lot more experienced Gumby thrust into a situation like this, but I felt very bad for Callum Hudson door, but this is a tired of Chelsea team. This is not the team that went to Anfield earlier in the season. You know, unlivable start of the season all those games in a row. Chelsea with the first team went into Anfield, I who actually beat livable anywhere in the CARA bowel Cup. Then they almost took them. I think a week later at home at Stanford bridge was that. Don't guess dunker. The game. Chelsea it felt like team that could match livable earlier in the season and they matched him in the first half. But the thing about Chelsea, it's ultimately, it's not about their weakness of play. All the time is just the weakness of spirit, which is the oddest thing is Chelsea fan to what Chelsea team that just has come friendly little spirit will live a poor up for everyone pledges passing moving pressing they cover Chelsea open couple of hundred first half. But you don't think in that locker room at halftime? The Chelsea players could looked at each other. And said this is working. We've held Liverpool bay. We have to hope that the nerves are going to ratchet the psychological pressures gonna kick in. We've got them when we want them. Yeah. But what a livable do coming out in the second half. You know, what clubs halftime speech is going to be. It's going to be press hard press harder press harder press hard, which is that xactly. What livable did when they came out, and Chelsea came out flat footed and not for the first time this season. Chelsea come out after a half time break, not armed. Anything? Tactically new any kind of surprise any kind of ability to react to what an opponent does. This is one of my biggest criticisms of Sarah is I don't know what he does. It's probably too busy smoking to actually think about what he's going to say truce David is the cigarettes. Do not smoke themselves for me the game changed for Chelsea with a loss of Ruta again replaced by Christians that Chelsea bat. Loin was noticeably slightly slightly less cohesive and little pounce on that small but noticeable differential respect to Liverpool. It never panicked. They never got over Drennan Linney. They never lost their focus were patient, methodical belief that if they maintain possession, and they maintained their commitment to collective team football the goal would come and the opening goal dig it was made. And we have to say this. This is Joe this really happened by Jordan Henderson, the Hendaye redemption story one that is oh so bloody lay fell. Dating and will remain. So until the media decide is one that he's crapper Gabar in this final third of the season these vanilla to run more freely and not midfield run into the box. More influence games in the final third, and they're charged in fluted, an incredible wall, David floated incredible. But it's his desire to win. He's a real competitor, Jordan Henderson. He's the kind of play you want skippering team in a in a title. Chase. An amazing ball sense. The backpost great vision. Not the obvious ball many lives at that for post. Money's always hanging around. Yeah. I mean, you just know money is going to be where we always four post bringing the hang tones. No, they did live on this go. We didn't have to show the Malaysia's show. How everyone went and celebrated with Abraham though ran off to celebrate on his own as well. He should because he assists was beautiful cherished it. And he just ran over to his own corner-flag celebrated solo with the fans, but what feels he must be feeling as the last remnant of that two thousand fourteen. Squad who who still the title slip from their grass now and credit Manitou war player? He is Dave score. A big goals. Twenty one this season to all all comes in big moments. Big games at Southampton. We knew we could school, but he moves the surprise depose did contract renewal time or when he was playing for a move, his consistency. In the second half of the season is really been when Liverpool of needed him. He's been the man that's been then confidence surge through the entire of police veins. Two minutes and twenty two seconds later seller who hustled it flickered Eappen a little frustrated game. What did he unleashed a corker? I mean the perfect shot. Perfect shot almost toe-poked. It was amazing contact on the ball, and it sort of visit way from Kappa when the wrong arm still don't think you could go to the right Tom and sales into the call. And two goals fat it. Yeah. And you'd say maybe undefendable still Joe Gino sits off as you do because they think he's going to thinks he's going to go and beat him on the dribble. Frankly, I could be Joe Gino on the dribble. Watch. I'm in tennis bull. Now, the racket I've never hit a couple of backhands down the line that have literally. Give me thickening. I've never have. Hey, I've never I've won football really big plane yet. Football hotel, Manchester, all white. Yeah. Football hotel him by the Neville brothers on the roof to show up. They said we have football pitcher and. Wicked. So we went in co-fund the video of this. If you say good as most shot, we do have to find the video go side by side. I can just tell the Kampala at least deli and Troy to say, yeah. The ball from full length of the pitch. Yeah. So hard. I just I didn't eat. No, really, good macaroni cheese and pie. I was an amazing. Yeah. It had been should birds much. Didn't do the pony thing. Pipe powered and that just like mood it. I'll let into the bull as a hit it. I'll say Catherine died all Ingo couldn't didn't even have chance to move never sold a bullet coming and it. Just thrashed satisfying feeling of. Fool children being bored and that number five number five inches, satisfying achievements of my life. I think we should pull the tape. Anyway, back to most gold strike was. It was amazing everything looks at chairman Mao. Used to instruct China's best ping pong players to hit the ball as if it was a head of their capitalist enemy and Phillips a bit of canes his former team Chelsea some tension there. Just land now on the ball. And that Sally the yoga tree post, by the way in the nineteen eighties. If you did yoga celebrations in a football culture, which was toxic masculinity defined. You would got red card for filling a yoga Sally. But you contrast that with the no Selley he did after less screen. Chelsea did wonder whether it was a a comment. We'll talk about this nature and the pod to the fans core in the Chelsea racist incident of the last week where they sang songs about most seller. It was him saying I'm said, the problem is all yours. Not mine. Nineteen goals on the season. Now this terrible season this bust of a season. This failure of a season tied for league top scorer with tuna guero the king. Yeah. The embarrassing thing as a Chelsea fan is this is just the latest the latest of a series of racist incidents involving Chelsea fan. So we're gonna get to a ton of other clubs the show me a club in English football. He's not. But it, but we'll talk about it. The thing about this moment, though, the two goals, less rock, Chelsea and more. David. They were briefly a big game mentality flagrantly reveal as all two chances in two minutes. I hit the post. Yeah. You said that to me. But it doesn't to me when you to kneel down. It's this is when it's easy. It's when it's nil nil half time is when the game is really being decided and on both those goals Emerson, yes. There was some contact Saleh win pastime that might have been called not been on a superstar player, he not been sort of an unknown leftback. But Amazon once again a player who's been blooded into the first team side having been given so few substitute appearances during the season. You talked about Ruta going off and Christian coming on christianson. Arguably Chelsea's best defender of the past two seasons. Barely gets a substitute appearance in this season. Then he gets trust. In the middle of this game is confidence must be somewhat shocked by the lack of squad rotation with Ruediger play who's been weighing theories of over over previous seasons. And it's just Chelsea's defending. I have to say Sarah's manner. Management of Chelsea team that had been built on the spirit and the defensive solidity. It just is just absent we'll say about as all admitted. Momentum eve how he's going to play a Real Madrid a c two disappointing seasons there before we return to the Premier League by Sony with Astle aka them verse esque pathetic, Shen watched his second of performance. We did have some time for some poetic human theater, the fourth minute and the Robertson slipping up, Dave and exactly the same spot as Gerald on the little groundstaff cleanup punch for God's sakes, wherever the banana skins oil spills scale up. Luckily, it was just Guay new picked up the chance. He's no Denver. I did love klom. I'm I never thought missed them. Bossa never full. Club turned to the crowd. I'm ballet to the more. Have we just seen what kind of magic with us? It was like medieval warfare action, the becomes stuff ballads and legend club later said we can close the slippy book, then which are loved the slippy book. There was pretty much for may Chelsea POV outside of the euro police triumph. They no longer control top four destiny. They did. I did chances to score the going they'll circle the game now again to Old Trafford. And that's where we have to win. If we're going to do this. There is hope David Chelsea gots basically win every game coming in and clued in the European league. They've now got to be perfect. And if they are migrate fear is that safe salaries job. And I don't know that I want that to happen. So I've written off this season. I'm hoping to palace can finish top ten. That's honestly where I am this season. I'm going to watch the title race thrilled. Like everybody else. I don't think the book is completely closed on the slip. Incident unless Liverpool win the league. Frankly, I think they've got to win the league they've got. Now, do it was very very big win for them. This was a huge piece of progress for them towards winning it massive in terms of gay management. They even bigger in terms of toll rates management. They've got four games to go playing Cardiff. Yep. Huddersfield yet Newcastle. Woulld the average league position. The teams facing fifteen point three men cities remaining opponents knowing point to of course, including Manchester United watch club walk up to the cop, the final whistle and think long and hard tease him a little bit. Should I keep things? Calm just clap over my head football style. Then he thought f I'm going to do my signature running crazy man old school German Rowley from jersey shore fist pumping. And I thought why not why not as Yoko Ono, and John Lennon one said a dream you dream a load is only a dream dream. You dream together is reality. We watch more than the wind to me, David. This was like a fully accesses him. I do. The Stephen Gerald slit, which is haunted Liverpool since April two thousand forty was exercise in this win where there was a wound. Whether it was fair what it was vulnerability does now belief and emboldened confident, no certainly Klopp celebration of the end looked to me like he thought this is we're going to win the league now on I think a lot of livable fans felt at the end of this game. This is we're gonna win the league now. And I think they will go perfect for the rest of the season. I think about with a man city can win those two very difficult games and go perfect as well. Anyway, one of those teams they've got to beat Manchester United. They beat West Ham two one two penalties from the Curial pug lift soil size men, pasta sprightly Einstein after being tied one one at halftime. It was really the introduction of substitute. Marcus rash. But that changed this game that and adapted to her save, Raj. Mckell Antonio like a human doing one of those incredible cat feet videos. You see with two thousand likes on Twitter from that save United went right down to the other end and the penalty that won it fullest stunning exchange of footballing fortunes and reminded if we needed it. The Premier League is a competition of razor thin margin. After the game said, you know, heated got away with it, and boy the need detail. Eight lost four game five bit outclass by boss Elena and the champion Zeke. I like tougher games ahead bossa than West Ham Everton men city, and Chelsea in the primarily and the media's narrative start to fold in on itself slightly took him out. United quote struggle to qualify for next season champions. This is all late. Now. This is on Ola wasn't that took that ten point gap that Marino at spotted him. This is definitely on him. And they still seem ponderous cumbersome western sprightly on the break. It was poker who had to penalties, and he was the number one topic of conversation before during and after the game Dave because he refused to review a question about whether he wants to move to Dan's Real Madrid, which is oddly keep saying, it's a dream, Dave. It's a dream. Patron the patron for everyone in Manchester right now. I don't know I feel like they might play better without him Ewing effect. Yeah. And I think a little Man United fans are starting to feel similarly lots of very very good young players in that Man United squad. So I don't know we've seen three poke biz in one season we've seen the half assing third of the season in which he just wanted the sabotage the mowing marina yet, and then the imperious game-changer merge with Iran of cool. New step data league the soldier who's been. It was spike game. Changing. It was point gauging eight goals five or six that's incredibly deep spite ten games. He scored eight times and then he's moved to United recent slump back into the won't away half assing experiencing a goal drought. And with two penalties. Good penalties. I mean, I was on the show every p p penalties Joseph Cornell box that unique this the seventy versions of comedy, trophic, routines, oldies greasing. Yeah. Blasting. And then he run to traffic faithful opened his legs wide. Immense spread it commanded the Radha ration-, and for now, there's a cute a volley of tweets poll Popa lead say I'm wondering should you fight to keep him. I mean, can you trust like I love? Now. I walked away dream now. I love it. Hey, regain its I think it's getting to the point of magical thinking to believe he's going to knuckle down and become the team leader that we know he can be that. They want him to be you know, they offer him. The captain z to Pandita him to me show more than enough to say, it's going to be a distraction is gonna flare up you cannot risk that distraction. You cannot indulge cell now call that convenience bias is that you have a bias because it's so inconvenient to lose him. You you've paid so much for him even vested so much in him. He's a star probably commercially. He's worth two gigantic. The convenience buys you convince yourself that the only thing you can possibly do is keep him only bought sir that huge banner on the front of all traffic this face on. It can't be awesome. Screw in them goes to philosophy. I think teams have to have a a playing style of philosophy more than just of teams have a club has to have a philosophy about the kind of place that work that kind of manages look that love under oath. They've got a chance to go back to that. It is a chance to sort of revisit the Ferguson era and have players who want to be at that level. Plays a collective for play. Who understood what it was like to plan to that clay pauper is never going to be that person? And you listen, Ed Wood wood, one of these players, the you should bring in immediately junk tocine, pay whatever. Okay. Tottenham for how does field nil injury Spurs the new injury stadiums. They play the injury hits I stadium. Follow up very impressive mid week one Champions League. I like win over man city. Wow. That was amazing by thumping Huddersfield. Then you gaffe, Lucas Moorer grabs the headline with a hattrick of frankly. Astonishing finishes road Spurs back up to third. Yeah. I they wait ever for ever for their state. The glue new stadium to open and assumes it does the worst. Nightmare comes true in that beautiful beautiful tunnel Bill. What's one of the first shot of it? We see Spitfire. Captain, Harry, k limping down ligament injury. Let out for the season the lesser Harry winks also out for a spell deli injured. God must be aguna will only low Spurs to have one thing the nice home ground or an amazing. I eleven but not bay. It's heartbreaking but step up Lucas mirror. A player who? Who taught them fans like have a difficult time really sort of figuring out they watch him being brilliant, and they watch him being lousy. They're watching being selected. They watch him on the bench. And then suddenly he just explodes in this game. Three great finishes. We'll say three stunning assess this I primarily hat trick came at a great time with Spurs forces. So depleted always look comfortable Spurs fourth or fifth option, and he's stepping up in that hour of need. I was really impressed in this really by Spurs mentality. I know it was only Huddersfield listeners, and no, but to lose Cain deli and keep on rumbling without thin squad stretch to me is a testament to Tottenham force of will other clubs could a wilted. They would mentally Spurs. Didn't get to LA credit. Taylor tweeted us to say my only concern as a Spurs fan is that this will only encourage Burs chairman Dunleavy to continue to keep his pocket. Book closed. Yep. I I'm sure that Levy looked Morris two year old son dribbling his dad on the field. After the game, a lovely scene. Maybe we could play Lucas Moore's son against Manchester City, decent touch. He's one of unlike one the phone unlock on the clubs. I could mention he'll probably get a chance because you know, why Parche rotates the squad and one of the reasons Moore's able to performance he's had enough appearances this season. A lot of players. Go to transform is the last time you heard of any unrest in the Tottenham dressing room is the last time you heard plays being miserably miserably unhappy at this club. Yes, they're always plays. We're looking for new contract looking for more playing time. But this is a squad that seemed to get on remarkably well with each other they celebrate with each other. They look remarkably together despite any challenge moment poetry, Tina told me that the key to agree team is to make sure and is the small things, I know this is nonsense is everything and nothing, but he makes sure that every single Spurs player shakes hands with every. Every other Spurs play coach and staff person when they see them for the first time, it was just a value, which is committed to the club. Do what a great word. It's a value, and that's a value because he puts a value on that. I'm a big person hellos and goodbyes very important as a human. It's something I really get my children to understand it where you greet someone on the way, you say goodbye to someone is really important. It's about respect shut up and sold off for big. Talking shots up sort of what mill asthma one. I am Ries men. Reentered the top four off the seeing of ten men what on Monday night football. Just the games lone goal came from Bama Yang in the tenth minute. His eighteenth season a minute later, the was sent off what was judged to be an elbow on Uruguayan terrier, Lucas Tarare arsenal.

Don't take it away from me, she headed home this weekend. Maho family most you can take my daughter to a first ever game.

A lot easier bump taking my dad to the Everton gain to three generations of Bennett will be down destroy totally deflated come the fun of whistle. It's going to be magnificent. None of amazing. Okay. Ross Nassau talking about which we've received many ravens the spate of recent racist incidents involving Premier League fans this week. So West Ham fans chanting anti semitic songs on the way to all traffic and Chelsea football club being forced to put out a strong statement, again decrying the behavior of their fans who were caught on video singing, vile chance about Muhammed Saleh before last week's quarterfinal first leg with Slavia Prague plays like Danny rose of spoken out about the impacted. It has on their lives and careers and a lot of GOP have written in asking us for thoughts on the issue wondering if the outbreaks perfect an uptick and racism in the English game. To me. It's not uptake. It's more that the issue is finally coming out into the light. And it's an awful awful process. But it's always been that been terrible for a long time. But it's coming out into an hopefully, not necessarily. Hopefully, this is a time for changing again, we've got a credit a law. This is because rhyme sterling's been bold enough to talk about it. And I'll take you late how he suffered compared to the white plays alongside him in terms of the treatment by the media, and by fans, which led to other place began really inhering ways. When you see what Danny ROY said, China Light on the true awfulness of this aspect of football culture. But it's always there because football is million mirror on a believe this deeply of the society, which surrounded and we'll say David before you. Give me your thoughts. No club is immune. This is not a Chelsea problem. This is not just a West Ham problem. Everton historically had an awful track record. What's now changed is it plays willing to be silent anymore? Jacob Steinberg ruin eye-popping long read in the Gordon last week about how pervasive racism is in every single facet. The gay reaches more coins from over fan abuse that we're we're hearing about two coaches in youth teams. At the youth level players saying that they were always just throw it onto the wing because they were blackened quote pace, you'll play on the wing never allowed to be in the center in the midfield. As an intelligent creative JIMBO Bill at the NFL back in the eighties. When it was common. Wisdom an African American could never play about racism endemic and all levels of the game. And what's important? We've got to keep talking about it and acting upon it right now, that's the that's the big the big decision point. Will we act only a will? We just talk about it. It does exist every club in football. It exists in every region of England as a south London. I find it just remarkable that it's still going on even at pubs in south London, which are multicultural as they come. It is particularly not embarrassing more than barris shameful for me as a Chelsea fan to hear this behavior. And it's almost like its this thug mentality is this group mentality. And it's partly the football exacerbates the problem because you get a lot of young guys together alcohol's involved. There's a brilliant article recently about the traveling English fans, never eurod ventures. And this this small group of like English fans still travel with the team and just sing vile songs and do vile things, and I've been very aware of it and the happy aware of it my whole life and felt uncomfortable about in my whole life. You remember a few years ago after the John Kerry incident at Loftus Road against Queen spot Rangers. And I said at the time it was received strongly-worded mail about it. So I said the real problem in football is not amongst players on the pitch who've on the whole grown up and played, you know, in a very multicultural environment in English football. The problem is really still amongst the fans and really since that incident we've just had fantasy after financed after fantasy after fan clubs have to adopt a zero tolerance policy to this. The media have to not only adopt zero tolerance policy towards it. They have to start checking themselves in the things that they do in the things that they write that make it worse. And actually what I really credit for him. Sterling for is for taking on the media about their own bias. Yeah. I mean true punishment for racist behavior real money pumped into the nonprofits have been set up to kit races about the game just to can investment zero-tolerance who have in the clubs in terms of facing up self policing their own funds behavior, these painful times, but we just don't get back to the nineteen eighties. When if you talk to blackflies, you played them the racism existed, overly everywhere managers players locker room home funds as well as Wayfair without a doubt. I mean, what was called banner. Hey that word banner is just always the worst. We have lifted up in this man, we've lifted up a rock, and what we found in the is really. But it doesn't mean that we should simply about we cannot put it back in bed. Newsday's? Yeah. Very much. So national women's soccer league is back for its seventh season. Please God looking for massive bump in a year of won a World Cup year. Also a year of challenge. How is not a national television deal for this league in a World Cup? Yeah. It's so upsetting is Bill maleness. I fully the long digitally and the game. I enjoyed North Carolina's courage will montage with Chicago red stars in which majestic Australian some curve and the US's Tomac might crystal done. Vo scored don't understand is why one big brand the target a Levi's a Toyota doesn't step in and give real money to own women's football right now right in this mode. Transform the game gained so much Bren. Love few things will make the spoiler landscape better in America right now, the real investment in all facets of the Women's Club game, and he CEO's listening, and there's at least review, please call us. We'll give my everything to support your work. Absolutely one thing you can't achieve peace to support the league. Even if you in one of the markets with the team is watch it via the Yaar who sports app or on your who's website. Okay. You're permanently and looks like this.

If someone totally died. Egg, my steroids a little cloudy this week tastes of drop points perhaps in the title race doesn't say who doesn't say how many, but I do see another twist in this title race for the this weekend. There are many ways to connect to us, including next thing on emporium, which is transformed to the mental as Bouma tummy by big or small from the bulma. We've got a tiny percentage Lassus to produce additional albeit sub optimal content.

Telling writer of fever dream, these brilliantly constructed tales with mystery with twists with spastic retelling disfavor violence in there, there's violence in their almost direct route into the darkest fears of the Rita in relation to human existence.

Caught Offside: League restarts in question and Guy Mowbray joins

"The off side Ching J two Vati. Yes hold off side from a basement in Westchester -partment in Brooklyn and regardless of J. J. Divinity. What's up brother? Andrew got in a fight with a Lotus today to understand how we're in a climate where that can physically happen so what happened was at seven o'clock in New York everybody bangs their pots and pans. They shout Holler out the window to to. You know basically acknowledged the amazing work of our frontline healthcare workers who have I mean just literally kept the city from total oblivion and my girlfriend Darcy has so I blow that out the window and it is loud it echoes through the through the Brooklyn Valley's if you will and today somebody and I've taken this as a person an insult from down. The street took out his jazz flus and played right towards the end of my boobs visa. Playing and pot-banging and then continued for the next two minutes when everyone else had stopped. You know we don't our acknowledgment. And we. Everyone had stopped. He kept going. Who Was it? Ron Burgundy right so I decided I wasn't having that I'd already roll down the window and put the Vova Zale away but taking it as a personal affront. I went out and tried to drown out the noise of his jazz flute. I I don't understand. What was it about him? Playing beyond what you have deemed to be the a lot of time. What bothered you about this? I'm I'm the Harn guy on my street Andrew. I'm the horn man of park slope. And I won't be usurped by this guy. You know the sad thing is you're saying this tongue in cheek but I believe deep down inside. You believe this like you believe that this thing that happens every night at seven o'clock yeah it's about the healthcare workers and everybody but it's also kind of about you. It's mostly about them but quite a large part is about me. Yes That is that is beautiful. That's what the spirit of all this is about. What a show. We have coming up off. This is such a show. I'm so excited. I'm very excited about this too. So you know what this week was supposed to have been like. You know what we were supposed to have been sitting down here right now. Talking about second legs. The Champions League semifinals sad sat right and so it got me thinking this time last year. The second leg of the Champions League semifinals. I honestly think. It's the most fun that I've ever had doing. The show was the day that you and I hosted after Liverpool had come back from To beat Barcelona and Tottenham Comeback to beat. I remember when you walked in the hug we gave each other. We were both. It was the one day where we allowed ourselves to just like have total love for for each other for each other teams for the situation and then afterwards it was like. Oh yeah now. We're GONNA play but for that day that that second leg day it was just so much fun. And the man who was on the call of the Tottenham Champion's league semifinal also before that he was on Tottenham Manchester City was guy now break Who was I said you at the time? He was spectacular like I. I kinda sometimes classify announcers in the context of big moments into three groups. There are those who detract to actually take away from the moment. There are those who just blend in to it which is fine and there are those who actually believe as an announcer help. Add to it like you know however big the miracle on ice was like the. Us beating the USSR in the nineteen hundred Olympics. That on its own was huge. And Al Michaels call even added another layer to the bigness of the moment. I actually believe Guy Mowbray was that good. In both the Tottenham Man City second leg and in the Tottenham. I xe when I go back and re watch those highlights as I often do He I get goosebumps all over again from his call so I'm so excited to talk to him today. We're going to have him on for a long discussion. Not just about that. He's been on. He's a legend. He's been on the calls of England World Cup's most recently against Colombia. That epic game BBC match of the day He's primarily can talk everything he's fantastic so I'm really truly excited to To have him on for what should be a really fun conversation. Yeah we cover so much ground Are we will cover so much ground with him. It's it's it's unbelievable. It's and you know his World Cup. Now's he was the guy who was the voice of England's run to the World Cup semifinal the first time since one thousand nine hundred so that's used to Andrew before we get into the football properly. I wanted to do something because I don't know. Have you noticed that? Media companies and large corporate institutions are playing ads. Kind of reminding people join this crisis that they're still there. It's utterly relentless and I can't take it anymore while you're going to have to. Because I commissioned especial add especially for us because I don't want anyone to forget that we're still here whether you like it or not so I've had it voiced. Would you like to hear us? Of course okay here we go Andrew. It's it's very special here. We go in tough times. Something's remain a constance a comfort. They give hope others do not caught off side. We just won't go away. It's GonNa be hard to get through the rest the show after that. That was moving. Did you enjoy what What networks can you see that commercial on you can see it late night after the after the flexi commercials we run a very late at night after the guy who can put the two bullets together and then put back? Yeah yeah consistently amazed by that. Every time I see commercial I get nervous all over again. When he's in the boat with sharks underneath him. I gotta be reassured at this. The material is that strong that you're going to swim with sharks here while my concern firm is that if he does end up in the pool. I don't think he has the physical fitness to get away from the shark. I'm sure he can swing. I Dunno buoyant. All right. Let's Let's talk about everything that's gone on over the past week like I said Guy Mowbray coming up shortly. There's actually a lot to talk about here Trying to think of where to begin. We'll begin with with what is concrete. And that is the French prime minister coming out this week and basically deciding four league and league done that the season is over and there will not be competitive sports until at least ten burswood. Sounds like the leagues are Gonna. Shut it down. We set last week after the. The Netherlands made their decision about shutting down that we couldn't help but wonder if a snowball was beginning to roll. And if you were going to start to see other leagues kind of jumped on board and they were just all waiting for that first. Domino to fall Belgian league has also said they will not come back and now of those leaks probably most prominently as the French league. Curious what you think of that decision at this stage. I think it was overly to be expected. In France. This is a country where two weeks ago. The President Emmanuel macron admitted mistakes and failures in their response their initial response to the corona virus on the French right now are carefully on cautiously attempting to open up certain parts of their economy on. It makes sense that sports is going to be the loser in that. It's the idea of even forgetting fans in Stadia. Just think of the idea of bringing together at twenty two plus Sixty players plus ancillary staff to crash into each other to be close to each other to take away medical staff. I I knew the French. We're going to go in this direction. And I actually think Andrew Dot we know the Bundesliga not to jump ahead or anything but the bone is the bone. They've got they've sent their plans to the government for approval. However this week. There's been an uptick in corona virus infections since they gradually relaxed some of their restrictions. I think over the last ten days on. It's likely that German authorities will not allow football at least for me so people were talking about the middle of May and they said No. It'd be the end of May but the Bundesliga will be back. In just from a statistical point of view point seven in terms of sprayed is what you have to is what the Germans were at and you have to keep it under one and the Germans went up two point nine six since they relaxed things so I mean if they're spooked by that football is going to get the CAN IS GONNA kick further down the road in terms of of Sport and rugby and an football so I just kind of expected this Andrew. Yeah a May what was it a May eighth return or may ninth return that they were hoping for the Bundesliga which is in a week and a half. I mean it just always felt a little too optimistic. And now we're seeing that hopes for that are fading Which is not shocking. Now this leads us to the conversation about what they're going to do in England. I think there's a hurdle here that we may have overlooked a little bit when we've been talking about The League's return. We've been talking about a lot of the different logistics. What are they going to do about fans How are there enough test to go around to make sure players are are being tested properly before these games? I sometimes wonder maybe we didn't give enough credence to simply like what. What are the players actually want to do like these guys aren't robots? It's not a situation. Where England than the Premier League say? You can go play again and they just get in line and do it. These guys have their own thoughts and ideas of what is right and what is wrong. And we're starting to hear now. Reports that there are players in there are managers from various clubs in England. That are not comfortable with this With a possible return in the near future One source that are primarily club told. Espn following quote. A lot of players are very uncomfortable with coming back. The only way the League takes the seriously as when someone at a club dies we will look back on this time with sadness in the future. that's a pretty strong comment there from whoever that Source was now. There's going to be a video conference of all club executives This Friday and they're going to further discuss the situation when they think it's realistic to be able to return and if they think it's going to be realistic to return There's a lot of questions here. Like there are clubs. That are worried about okay. Let's say things are good up north and like Newcastle and that part of the country is okay. But let's say things in London are still bad. What sort of integrity of competition? Where questions will there be. If the London Club's can't play home matches but some clubs can play only whole matches. So there's questions like that. The that remain. There's I don't know I've been saying throughout that. The only option to me is to just end this thing without a fair conclusion. And I'm starting to wonder if if I've been harsh in that assessment and first of all England is just. That's just look at things right now in the United Kingdom in England Andrew. They're way behind on what they need to be. That in terms of testing like there will not be enough tests available to test the players on the regular basis that we would need to do to ensure there is no infection in this league. I I read today in Keith. Something that I mean. If if if this is the thinking in football are thinking that's beginning to creep into the game but maybe we don't see what we thought at the start would be some kind of conclusion The president of the fief of Medical Commission the Belgian Michel. Though said he was very skeptical about a return to competition in an interview with the BBC. He said the following the situation is different country by country the peak is not reached everywhere at the same time but today April Twenty Eighth. We are not ready for. Resumption of football competitions said the doctor former member of the executive committee and former president of the Belgian Football Federation and. I'm just pushing that forward Andrew. We're talking about a resumption of the league in June or July. I don't think conditions will be will be okay to do that and UEFA setting a May twenty fifth deadline for when leagues need to decide what they're gonNa do and that like that's a month from it's less than a month if things how much different things are going to be today especially if you're seeing things like in Germany where they're getting ready to come back and now there's an uptick. Once again in Corona virus activity if that happens now in other leagues like May Twenty Fifth. Leagues are not going to be able to definitively say yes. We're going to be able to come back but also if they do that what they'll do is they'll submit whatever plan that they can put together and the and the virus will dictate because that's basically what's going to happen Well here here's what worries me is. I saw this from Dan. Ronan at the BBC and he wrote this. He wrote with Prime Minister. Boris Johnson preparing to return to work after recuperating from his own brush with corona virus. The League was told Downing Street wanted top flight football back as soon as possible to help boost people's morale after months in lockdown and to support the game commercially with many jobs on the line and the water football industry desperate for a restart primarily bosses had let it be known. Just how important it was. The season be completed pointing to the three quarters of a billion pounds that contractually would have to be paid back to live. Tv rightsholder sky and bt whether the two broadcasters actually intended demand all the refund. They're entitled to the season. CanNot resume remains unclear if the league comes back. Jj I need to know that it's coming back for the right reasons. It can't simply be coming back so sky sports and the finances Eh. Bt Sport and the finances that deal are worked out that can't be the reason and even well I'm not gonna say even more than that equal to that. Look I love sports? They mean a whole hell of a lot to me as they do you as they do pretty much. Everybody listened to this podcast right now. But I'm sorry. The reason for this game to come back cannot simply be to boost morale to import. Allies are at stake. There's like this is a matter of people's health. This is in many cases. It's going to be a life and death decision. It can't just be. We need to boost morale around the country. So we're going to put X. number of lives on the line here that's not good enough. People will just have to cope with a year without sports. I'm sorry I agree with you wholeheartedly with that. But it is not a coincidence to me that the Premier League are on the hook for three quarters of a billion if this is not completed and they're desperate to get it completed. It's not a coincidence to me. That zone have not paid down the fourth installment of their payment to the Bundesliga and the Bundesliga are mad to get this like are facts. Now I will say I. I don't know how this is going to go sky and bt for forever greed. And maybe I'll be proven wrong here and I'll be sad if I am but for whatever greed you think is involved not you general. You is involved in companies like Sky Sports or bt Sport I just simply cannot believe that they will demand a full refund. Like there has to S- they'd still receive benefits of having the primarily on their networks week in week out. They've gotten huge ratings numbers. They've been able to charge those advertisers and marketing. So I venture some sort of compromise will pro rated compromise Andrew but these are companies with investors and shareholders? When's the last time a major corporate entity that anyone off the hook for billions are even created? Don't you think that would be completely? I would think that the primarily could almost take sky sport to if skysports demanded a full refund when when we had seventy five percent of the season completed that that's not right. I mean I'm sure they'd have some groans to do that but I'm not a legal expert. I can't I can't read either. I just WANNA say dot the conservative government pushing in England that the Tory party on Boris Johnson pushing to have primarily football back in the middle of the summer when they don't have testing up to where it needs to be an and be also. It's the second time during this pandemic but we've seen politics use. It will be a grit. Diversion TO HAVE PREMIER LEAGUE FOOTBALL. But can you imagine the numbers? Can you imagine the engagement? It'll be a huge diversion from the people. Unsafe diversion not morale boost. They've already used footballers and their pay cuts as a kind of a smoke and mirrors job to deflect from the job that they've been doing themselves. Yeah I just hope that the per league here does the right thing because they don't early on so far they haven't had a great track record. Remember when this all started they were gonNA play until mckellar? Tessa tested positive. And then there was kind of this light white that was basically the. Epl's Ruby Goh bear moment like they were going to go ahead. I think it continue playing until he tested. Positive hit closer to home forever ban. There's blame to go around with. It was absolute madness for the harvest festival to be hosted and it was crazy for Athletico Madrid to play Liverpool Valencia to travel to Italy and all those things were absolute in. Hindsight were insanity knowing knowing even what we knew then. But that's the thing though is that I I just want to go. I'm sorry but I just WanNa go off what you just said there. You say in hindsight like I think that in certain instances and people who have lost loved ones. Don't WanNa hear this and I get that but you know we can look back twenty twenty hindsight and now say that that was crazy but I think you do have to put yourself back in the context the context of the moment when we didn't really have a a great mental grasp yet on what this is so in some respects. You can almost excuse you know the decision to have that. Champions League match played and things like that but to do it now when we do know what we know and we have seen firsthand. Just how dangerous this viruses. That's when there are no more excuses. Well can I take it back to the players as well? We have had scenarios where in this country where healthy and fit. People in their thirties have died. Okay this thing only begin. They medical professions are only beginning to grappo with the complexity of what this can do to major organs to the brand. We've seen strokes we've seen heart attacks from this from young. I read an article in the New York Times about forty something year old fit person who had no underlying a health conditions and it took the most amazing acts and feats of of working on the fly for them to save this person's life right. We've seen I mean we really could be talking about a dead primarily player when we consider the testimony of thirty-seven-year-old Pepe Arena. We really could Andrew on your on. What we're talking about now is putting those guys back in danger also putting elderly men endanger Roy Hodgson. Who is who is in the most at risk category of age. What what's HE GONNA do? He can't be with teen. That's that would be insane. I think we really need to I. Don't I saw John? Nicholson From three six five tweet out about. When would you feel it? Sift come back to the Games and had three different categories on one of the categories was. I would only attend. The game are go back to football when we have a vaccine and I think the same should apply for actual competition and that is talk but people's lives are far more important than the execution and the ending of the Premier League or the Bundesliga are the league. I'm sorry I don't like is too precious. You're right ultimately here. We just have to trust the people that don't that don't have a vested interest. You know what I mean bright when Anthony fouled she says something in the United States it holds weight with me because I don't believe he necessarily has a vested interest in whether sports come back or don't I think he's just going to tell you the simple facts so like you know that's those are the people that I trust right now I don't know government officials. Tv networks like no. Those are not necessarily the people who who what they say carries a ton of weight with me. I'll tell you what we've got a big. I'm I'm looking forward to. Our mailbag sent me the questions earlier and some of these guys had great responses to the question. We asked last week when j watched rewatch the Liverpool Crystal Palace match the when Palestine from three nail down to equalize essentially and Liverpool's title hopes. Alive you guys had good responses to the matches. You would never watch again. We'll get to those in a little bit. Nice mail very healthy now back but now. I'm so excited. We talked about this a few minutes ago. longtime broadcaster. He's done World Cups Champions Leagues you can hear them on the BBC. One of our favorite guys in the business right now guy. Moll Bray joins the show now guy. What's up man. How are you? I'm okay? Thanks guys Considering everything got my health physically at least that's the main thing in these times. Yeah I guess. That's kind of like the first and foremost question. That's kind of most important. Everyone right now how are you doing? How's your family doing? And Are you getting by is essentially during these These last six weeks. Yeah we're okay. It's a little bit strange having a thirteen year old at home when she should be at school I'm a walks working from home as well. She normally works in school. So she's she's doing stuff from home. So yeah we're doing okay with but just days and bad days some days of boredom there's some days of mild crazed you fauria. But yeah we're doing we're doing as well as we can actually spent the last couple of days because I've got to the point where I feel. I've got to do some work. Researching doing some preparation for euro twenty twenty. Which of course will now happen in Europe. Twenty twenty one But I've done Russia. I've done Croatia. Get onto ten tomorrow. That's very productive guy. I've been following you on twitter and I don't want to call you out because you're certainly not lying. I well believe that you are working very hard but I want to hone in one of these tweets hair. It's a this is a two part question for you. You tweeted on April twenty fifth. I love playing my prior to making those world. Cup Rewrote rewind programs. I adore watching them but they aren't half making me miss the here now stuff. Gmt time. I think the first part of my question is what part of the the the here knows of the day to day of the cometary life. Are You missing? And the second part is what brand of GIN are you? Are you drinking? We'll deal with the second pot. I shall we stay local A much into your gin which is From the fastest Yolk in northern England and an old school friend of mine actually is a a big plan behind the company. So he's he's making the stuff so I figure I better help him out by drinking it other than that. Yeah I I would have said it was just the The matchdays the buzz around the matchdays not just the matches themselves but seeing Mccullough eggs and just everything about Saturday Sunday am would have been the main thing that was missing but I realized in the last few days. It's actually the stuff from a Home Office the prep. It's it's doing all the research and during the revision for the Games that I've been missing as well which is really. I thought you know what? I don't have any specific games to prepare for now but if I get some of the skeleton stuff done for next summer's European Championships. Okay well fourteen months away but it's all knowledge in the bank is not going to go anywhere. I'm just update when we get nearer the time. So that's what I've been doing and actually it's got me back into swap some sort of rhythm some sort of routine which we all need to some extent yet go. Can I ask you about the routine of? We'll say normal week. A match of the day is there. Is there a ground? Is there a team when you see it on your schedule you think yes? I am going to enjoy this. I'm really offered. What is your routine in the lead? Up to two premier league weekend. The routine is is a bit like I always compare it to when you're a student and you're you're doing exams so for every game is an exam preparation in the revisions in everything that could happen in that game. So there's a heck of a lot to do it never actually ends. It's a seven day a week job if you can call it a job because it is basically a paid passionate so yet. That's what I do day today. That never ends as soon as I get my my row. Six weeks in advance on prepping three or four games at a time and as regards grams are like going to all of them throughout the course of a season. Because you never know where the Games are going to be. Obviously the juices get flowing a little bit more if you're if you're sent to one of the real the real crackers the weekend before lockdown did the Manchester wwl traffic the day before I was Anfield Liverpool against When you go to those grounds and those occasions you do get a little bit more excited but the good games can be any. They don going anywhere. Because too often the actual blockbuste- games let you down a bit and some of the ones in the lower half of the primarily table could be whether real excitements out so the mind as long as we're going to spread on. I get to go everywhere throughout the season. That's the main thing well guy. I'm going to do some gushing here. You did a couple blockbuster games last season. You're on the call of the second leg of both taught. Man City and Tottenham champion. And you're talking to a spurs supporter right now and I just WanNa say as it's gotten them fan. It was an incredible moment and you actually found a way to add to the moment. You're caller incredible. You had a line in particular at the end of the Man City the second leg against Man City when the bar review is going on and he said my goodness as if there couldn't be any more drama it felt like you had kind of been sucked into the match almost the same way that supporters of both clubs are and. I don't even really have a question so much as to just sort of if you can kind of take us back to the moment of that game the Imax game and just sort of. Tell us what you're feeling sitting there in that arena watching that all transpire in front of you though still under. Thank you very much for saying that. That's that's much appreciated yet. I got a little bit goosebumps. Actually when you were just saying those words. Because I was I was remembering the end of that much at the city game. And just the the confusion excitement mixed with confusion you think rhinestones completed his hat-trick think that you've got the goal to make it. Incredibly you know the them to go through five three aggregate after everything we've seen you couldn't quite couldn't quite quantify that in your brain and then you glance down and you think this goal isn't going to stand and I struck lucky in a way in that we. We just glanced and soul that the referee was was talking to his assistant. The sewing put his finger to his. And and you just hang on a minute of side here. And then the replay comes on by airing that you have something to work on because this was a time when VR was new to all of his state lays relatively so there's a lot of confusion going on. We're getting used to it just as much as anybody else is as old as support and spectectors around the world also. There's a lot of very fast processing going on in your brain and I think my my brain computer went up from from Gig to sixteen gigging. won't sweep without one that that was tough but it was it certainly go you going and for that that that three two win for Spurs. I xe that that was. I've ever seen two days of football like that back to back in my life the day before Liverpool a bit in Barcelona four nil from three down first leg and then spurs from three kneel down on aggregate. Let's not forget. I asked her to kneel up in that second leg for Spurs to combat with Lucas. Moore's hatchet right up six minute of injury. Time was the winner of the final goal. Some inland up you get. Those aren't easy. Like yeah. You get those games once every five seasons. You don't get two nights. That was unbelievable what it was a great season and actually the final of the Champions League last season we we think it led us down a bit but that would have been too much to ask after cool to finals and semifinals. That we couldn't have had a fun was well. That would have been crazy. Yeah I've always felt guide that the line and brought it up in particular the my goodness if there could be any more drama first of all I think it could get you get a printed on t shirts and I think Tottenham fans would buy it. But I've taught I told the story before two. Jj J just how how despondent. I was watching that and then I'm not even facing the TV anymore. I kind of have my head in my shoulder just like complaining. What had just happened and then hearing you say that line. I sort of just like grants back at the TV. Like wait a minute. Is this not over like am? I being sucked back from the jaws of defeat here. And it's just one of those lines that I think it resonates with me and with all spurs fans because it Kinda just gave them new life to this run that they won on it was. It was incredible really really great. You've just reminded me You have the advantage of it being earlier in the evening in the states because I know not just stories that I've heard but a spoon to a couple of people who actually did this told him fans in the UK went to bed thinking they were out. It wasn't until the next morning they added. That happened they turn the TV. They thought they were gone. And there's a number of people that that happened to that night. So that just sums of just how almost ridiculous and we use the word incredible too much story but that was not credible that that does that does not happen. But it did in front of our eyes and Yeah that's I actually wrote a piece for the BBC website. Yesterday which I think will be on this weekend and it was just asking about various things about common trays. And they're asking about favorite goal. Now I'm not great with goals one system one game onto the next and don't retain remember scorelines and things but actual goals account quite unless absolutely out this world account quote picture them sometimes and what I wrote about instead was remember sons. Goal this season against Burnley where he ran from there to be six hundred bucks a month of the field on. I remember that one because you don't see goes out very often anymore. Used to see them a lot now. More about team goals and passing shots from twenty five yards. Might be but you don't see the individual solo rooms much Houston so that's stuck in my mind and it was the sole goal and it was the same we'd Lucas Moore's third goal against I accident semi-finalist season. There are certain goals that is a commentator test you and they test you in not swearing goals. They're the goals are remember. The question is how do you swear when you're doing a country people see me in the balls in the pub? Local pub profanity is as bad as anybody else's but when you are not it doesn't happen as an auto switch you. Just don't do it youtube this. You don't do it when you broadcasting you. I don't know why you don't do it but you just don't do it. Something switches automatically but when a goal that goes in and you dumbstruck. For a second you are very close. Believe me I've been close so many times just coming out with something that would be career ending on the Lucas Moore winner. I X one of those moments just pulls for certain dotes anything ridiculous. Something crazy might come out and then you gather your thoughts and guy you admitted on twitter that you nearly delve into the the the term I will we. Sometimes we swear in this podcast. We're not supposed on we. Andrew Andrew bleeps it out but indifference to the BBC and Her Majesty the Queen. I will not use the first part of what you were going to say about the Colombians. I will just suggest that it was house. Ary Yes some kind of you. Nearly you said you nearly said that Dominic did and I watched it but the the day the England Columbia again from the World Cup two thousand eighteen and I actually go to angry. Nearly two years got angry watching. I'm more angry now than at the time and I think it's because I was sitting at home watching it dispassionately watching it away from it. All just as a spectator Roz respectable broadcast. So yeah I I was swearing saving the day when I walked stopped about two years because they're behavior throughout that entire game was absolutely despicable and it was full of Soda. It was dreadful before we get to that guy and that night against Colombia. Because I do want to talk about that You said something very interesting earlier. On there you talked about the microprocessor. The way a commentator is challenged is challenged by a moment. And it's a question. I get a lot over here from From from American soccer fans there's a stop-start nature to the American game. Apart from hockey gives you a chance to to maybe come up with something Peter. Drury said he didn't come up our he didn't pre rehearse the line about Manila's the Greek God in the final are the Champions League semi final quarterfinalist became famous. Can you definitively answer this? You don't come into a game with an inkling thinking. Oh well if he scores. I've got some snazzy word play I can interject here spot I can back Peter up one hundred percent absolutely not you. Just don't do it. Wong went out very good actors. We react to what we see. What comes out comes out. I got asked about this the other day and it was a line from a game in the World Cup in twenty four take hold scored for Brazil say incredible. Well that's pretty. That's pretty cheesy and pathetic really to be honest book. It's a natural thing. It's it's Word Pavlov's dog isn't it? You say incredible hope that we go and that came out. That's a Pool Pedro by a million miles. The better ones in that. But that's the first one that comes to mind and it's instinctive reaction You might have an idea as you drive into the game on you on the train. The plane you might have a rough idea of you. Go into the game in your head and you won't have a pre planned lines or anything but you might have an idea. Spotlit comes into your brand new. You might put that into the cone of a later. But you'll never ever pre prep align anytime you do is for the teen years Before we action starts wants action starts. It's about what comes into your head as you're watching the game live and it's the pure reaction of wall you'll thinking at the time and anything of that would be completely disingenuous. An wouldn't be proper commentary and I'm pretty much certain that any commentator with assault would mess it up if it tried to do that anyway when no good actors guy. I'm curious you mentioned how you were watching England Columbia. Even now two years later you still get angry at points watching that game when you're broadcasting England. Will you call that game differently than you would say any random EP? L. Match simply because you have the knowledge of knowing that the vast majority of people watching back home are all supporting the team in white or red is that we call it differently when you call it more like a fan because of that depends broacasting too if it's on the BBC and you are pretty certain your audience is well? It's certainly a huge majority of people are wanting England to win. Then I might do. Actually England Games are the only ones were on monitoring. The any of the game is down the line. It's one team against another and again it's a bit lower than not swearing the auto pilot kicks in and you do watch one team against another. That's it and you call it as you see it with England. It's just a little bit a little bit different. You almost go back to your training and local radio offers grew up in local radio where you are the same team week in week out and ninety plus percent of your listeners our supporters about team one of my early Gig was always doing Sunderland in the northeast of England. I did every game for five years and they were great times and you do that tailored to your audience. You know biased. You don't cool things ridiculously like saying well. How is that? Not a penalty not should be a red cardinal but you might make it a little bit clearer. Who Yo- who side you're wrong? You still cool the game in the happenings in the game. Absolutely down the middle but they can be a little bit of disappointment if the losing a little bit of extract silent. If they're winning they're they're only differences that but that would be only if. I'm absolutely certain that that's what the audiences because if you didn't do it you just annoy people. You know the hell out of them a little bit a little bit you would if you a biased in a in a in a game a regular game. One of the Champions League ends that I was saying before we get a little bit of criticism some of English common sites for being sort of this idea. That when there's an English team involved in the Champions League where little bit skewed towards them rather than say I actually event if play against the Idaho with that other than that's nonsense. I think that's just I always say bias in the ear of the beholder. Who you want to win affect how you listen to it and I have this conversation. We football what all the time if you will for example a West Ham supporter. And you're listening to make comments. I on West Against Manchester United. You'll pretty guaranteed to think. I'm a Manchester United Supporter. All you could insert any teams name into that Because you will hear what you want to hear if I'm not subscribing to that one hundred percent with what I'm saying and that anybody says always you'll perception. I guarantee any common sense go anywhere near top TV levels anywhere in the world will not be biased in the course of doing that job because they wouldn't have go anywhere near that level. If there were that had been find out. Wait down the line. Well Guy I reject the fact that it's my fault that I wanted England to lose every game for the past twenty five years. It's entirely by the way you've been pretty successful at making it happen on unbelievable and let's talk about the moment that my jaw was shattered. Penalty shootouts in World Cups. I remember being boy watching the shootout against West Germany in one thousand nine hundred eighty and watched i. I'm fascinated by England an England in major tournaments. It's so much drama. There's so much intrigue and there's so much tragedy. Shakespeare couldn't have written it himself. But let's talk about that moment. Eric Eric dire stepping up to take the conclusive penalty against Colombia. Now this is a moment where we're Guy Mowbray. I'm assuming atmospheric pressure because this is a piece of history about to happen and your voice would be the soundtrack to that to be on his two hours plus into a game like that. You're not thinking about yourself at all you just completely wrapped up in it and again what comes out comes up. There's a there's a few things with that one all. You've just press my buttons that because in an international tournament as if I take myself away from being a commentator on the Games for a moment I support Scotland. I support inland. I support the Republican island. I know that I love. I support Wales. I know it doesn't all ooh believe will leave that aside. You what you're doing a bit. Is there the videos? That moment was the best moment of the World Cup for me and a few reasons for it one. It was pretty dramatic and Eric Dia Walking. I thought and I am going to swear. It's Eric Diet of sort of looking around is raised going really really. There was a bit of panic. Some reason we'll need your Henderson would miss. I don't know why he's he's one of my favorite players. He's not standing captain of Liverpool. But for some reason I knew I just had a feeling you get done. You re we all get that feeling penalties when you just know and I reckon I'll have more than a fifty percent success rate with predictions of I've never done it scientifically but you just know. They're not going to school. Something's going to happen here and yeah so there was a little trepidation and and by the way that was nearly saved a penalty. It wasn't the best penalty to be honest. There was a spin it was also capable. Isn't it down The EX also. Kepa who very nearly. But the best moment for me was at the end where we'd wrapped up within the closing lines. I'm with Donna Murphy. On on commentary. We've wrapped closing thoughts. We've just come off air. I felt a tap on my shoulder and I turned around and leaning over from the common position behind those which was occupied for that game by the statements about that Moscow. The positions was such that BBC National Radio Five Live. Were RIGHT BEHIND US. So some of our radio colleagues was sitting behind us. And I. It's up on my shoulder and it was Chris waddle it'd been doing the summarizing the co- country for the radio. I'm Chris just wanted to give me a hard. I'm GONNA go again. Am Chris. Chris Gimme high five and he was in tears. He was in taste. I'm the guy that missed the penalty. That was K- In nineteen ninety was in Floata's because it was almost like a cleansing experience for it gone the pain gone and then I started goodness make. Yeah that was. That was a magic moment for me to share that with them and look you know. I can tease and joke and everything. It's banter between the home nations and the islands back whole But I definitely felt I was watching a BBC. Montage version of of the highlights of England's world always great great. That really will put eight the other. It's it's beautiful. It's got the national playing in the background. Which is one of my favorite bands and nobody does. Does this high sentimental drama quite like the national so must have been just absolutely gorgeous for you. It was. Yeah it was. I enjoyed Russia hugely. We'd gone into it with a Lotta people full of trepidation. And you know it's dangerous place and oh it's not very nice and it'll be all over that. I never had that the previous two World Cups have been in Brazil and South Africa and we were told they were say this is as well. We'd have nothing but wonderful times so I have no worries at all. I knew it'd be fine and it was. It was a wonderful country. Everybody was Hispanic so we had some great experiences away from full apart from me nearly being arrested for losing something. I'm a possible in week two. That was quite interesting. Four hours in a in a Russian police station of a seller on the ground with some Stray Wolf Techno House music all the time on being questioned this strange techno house music playing which is very very surreal But Anyway we tried to break you down. They were but we. We managed to get through that and yeah the whole tournament was fantastic so never mind the England. The game for me was Argentina. France SPAIN GINA. Full three was was an absolutely outstanding game. I adored I was so exciting and So so they were all good that Dingane of different the'll because of the pressure you can feel the tension in the studio you can feel you get more. Colson produces in the building. Basically telling you how to do your job telling to suck eggs modules. No different no matter which scenes involves On Edge. They're tense 'cause they know there's millions watching at home. It takes on a bit of a different fail. I think grew and we saw this when the door opened up my thought this could be on something for England here. I am not penalty shootout win. Just took it to a new level. That's when people started to think hang on a minute. Hang on a minute. Quarter-final Sweden was a breeze through to the semis for me the strange failing when I remember it now was after that win over Sweden. I kind of felt again a bit of a success. Thought WE'RE NOT GONNA win the semi. We're not just going too good to be true and it proved so it proved so and even single mobile wool mill up in the semi when Karen trip. You scored a brilliant free-kick. I didn't get too excited. Maybe I had a professional head on it. Didn't I didn't call the goal but inside. I wasn't exactly bursting into a welcome fund involve in England. I kind of just new babies years of supporting a Crapton England York City over disappointment. Maybe you just and years of what? She England that Major Totems. Maybe just brace yourself for disappointment in. Anything else is a bonus. Yeah maybe score too soon guy without a doubt without a doubt. Yeah I I think the pressure that gets the players little bit and actually semifinals was good as that. Schools should have achieved They did brilliantly they were superbly managed by Gareth Southgate. I really hope he can carry on and do great things when when all over them we see some football again but I think not squad achieved as much as it possibly could have achieved. I think so. Yeah Guy I wanted to. I wanted to bring you back. I guess to kind of the sad reality of today and the Premier League and JJ. And I were talking before you came on a about the it was reported. Espn I'm sure. You guys seen over in England as well about some primarily players feeling a little bit uncomfortable coming back to their clubs during a pandemic and I'm just curious that's the players side of it. How would you feel if you were called back to one of these stadiums to broadcast these games? Would you feel with that? No No. That's all I don't have any worries on that score whatsoever. I would trust everybody to put all precautions in place and I think you get to a point of what can you do? You know. We can't stay indoors forever. GonNa have to come outside at some some point this thing just will just suddenly disappear. It's still going to be around so I would go back into tomorrow if I was called upon. I do understand the reticence and haven't really got a feeling either way on whether it's right or wrong to be talking about return at some point in June. Which is what's being talked about. At the moment I understand some people will be reticent about it I understand some people just call white to get it on on just going to be guarded by whatever from us to do. I will do Because just has so many people saying. Oh we shouldn't be doing eight foolhardy. It's far too soon but then I had other people saying well hang plan and we're GONNA make a comeback at some point so if we can do it as soon as possible. Listen I'm not an expert on any of this so I will just go with the advice. Given an trust trust the authorities government the premier league. I would trust them to send us back anywhere until it is deemed safe to do so. I don't think it's ever GONNA be one hundred percent safe for a long time. If nothing ever is is there? I could have an accident on the way to the grandson. Nothing's ever perfectly safe. I would just go with advice. I'm giving guy before we let you go you. You mentioned that your support of Lower League side. What's defeating from England from what the reports were getting here in the United States. There's there's a lot of clubs who are not going to come out of this And may not survive financially. What's your read on the stats? I think going to be an inevitable. Sad conclusion of oldest That will be clubs going out of business and part of that simply because a lot of clubs live beyond their means permanently. I think the ones that do go will be the ones that possibly haven't been doing things in quotes right for quite a while They will be natural casualties every sympathy for the supporters of those clubs. It's nothing to do with them. It's not their that default clubs earned in difficult financial situations. I've thought for a long time that we have and this is a controversial view. And I don't want any club together business because it's all about supporters but I thought we have too many professional clubs in the country and I include my own New York City when now. You know historically our league club one of the ninety-two historically but we've been down now in Non League for styve years again. Something like that. And we've been down this for the last three years and yet still a full-time Professional Club. Getting two and a half thousand people watching every home game that count be sustainable long term. And the problem with this the problem with this is there's no TV money that level. Not really so. If you don't have people coming through the turnstiles to watch the games you don't have any income And My club might struggle for that I. I think we're in a better position than most because the slightly bigger than law clubs at that level we're actually whereas he talks. Division at the moment is a big talking point around my area about well. Lake should be suspended now. We should go up because we're top but the team behind King's Lynn of two games in hand the ninety two points behind so they would have to say about that There will be no fat way of settling. This is GonNa be unfair to somebody. No matter how you set it might might take on is listen at the end of all this. Never mind the division promotion. Let's just hope going to clip to support because the league structure might all change anyway that the structure of the lakes if some guy business different? It's it's really really sad but haven't we heard for a long long time. Pipping saying the soccer bubble will bust at some point. Yes now we didn't know it would come like this but maybe this is it boosting. Its bleak picture that that is something we obeyed. Say Something Again. Come on get us back more. Okay I will I. You've been so kind with your time. I've got two more quick ones for you. That are a little bit kind of random ones the first one. It was something Jj mentioned twitter. Feed before which is Great. I saw you tweet this Forgot how weird some of his behavior was slash is knowing that you were coming on. Oh yes get to ask him what he was watching prompted him to tweet that that. That was one of our programs at the BBC booking back at at an old stuff and I've been putting together. These World Cup rewind programs but we look back at Great Games from past World Cups now. We can't forget what he did to Kaley and biting him in Brazil but but we had a program last Saturday night and it was it. Was Gary Lineker. Alan Shearer Indian Ryan. And they're the moment doing a much that they talk tense and talking about top ten overseas plants ten various things unless it was top. Ten crazy moments from the premier league's historic. I'm one of them was Suarez biting advantage in a little pool. Chelsea gamut unfilled. Now I remember it. Oh I got another actually forgot. Call that game but I watched it back and you could voice at the time when we sold the replay. A why I tweeted. That put weird pass phone doing this several times and Berry so slightly underhand tactics on the field. But I'd forgotten the nature of the bite. He wasn't just a test. Bike can ever be casual. But it wasn't just appropriate grabbed. Hold of his arm sank his head. It was like watching something from vampire movie. It was actually vampire behavior and it just made me think you know. That's just that's not just wrong. It is Weird. It is absolutely weird because human yes? Yeah that's the word module guy. I Don I don't want to cut across you there. But if you ever get a chance to To Google or look up at right Thomson from ESPN did a grit piece on Suarez. Pre the COLLINI buying and it gives some kind of pop psychology and I kind of look into why he is the way that he is. It's it's a good read because it conclude that he is actually about. Yeah yeah it it does it. That's the conclusion Suarez as a vampire and also also you've not been charged on the old the controversial opinions on twitter. You think Cantona was correct. I didn't quite so I said at time. That's the way yeah. Yeah at times I look back and think yeah. I don't blame him quite honestly I do too because you know I. I get annoyed. Some of the stigma players get. I understand I understand these great passion but I think there's a line. There's a line that people know not to cross and I actually had my the restraint and only enough we go back against England. Columbia Gamut How England players kept their cool when all that was going on if if all hurricanes at the penalty in normal time in the game was that guy's Barrios followed him followed him full where there was a two three minute delay before he took penalty because of all the complaining but as they surrounded the referee. One of that guy's Barrios just followed hurricane. He just walked an inch behind him as he had the ball under his mom. Now if not around the clock them on you know restraint the players showed was I think it was a it was Gareth. Southgate coming out in them because he was. That was a player. And he's like that as a man he's he's a gentleman. I think the England players deserve a high spot. Actually the well never mind getting the semi finals. The way they got to the semifinals deserves. Praise too. Because there's a heck of a provocation and they'd wonderful English restraint on show guy last one for you. Jj and I almost have like an obsession with loud roars from crowds after big goals and sometimes when we have commentators on. I know you said you don't necessarily have a great memory for specific goals. But you know like we've talked about league griffiths second for Scotland Against Inland Guero against QPR. Do have one that you remember from a game. You're at a roar that you were just like blown away by the noise of it. I do actually going back quite a few years. It was Celtic against Juventus in the Champions League. Now with the pain. What year was that? I'm going to just look while I'm talking to you because carnival year. Two thousand two thousand was on out in two thousand and one October. Two thousand one and yet Halloween thirty festival took a two thousand one. Celtic full event is three. I was looking for TV at the time. And I called the game at Celtic Rock and Luba mimeograph chick. The veteran Slovakian had the game of his life when the winning goal went in the noise is the only time I've been in a ground where the noise actually had to take my headphones off because they popped cracked. The noise went so it was sort of it. Just let me start whistling. It went beyond crowd noise into this whistle and something broke in my headphones. It was that loud guy. We we've long held the view on this podcast that there is a discernible difference between the English or the Irish roar and this guttural roar in Scotland. Yeah you you might have a point yeah I wonder if that's become over the years. Because of the way the premier league is and the mass tourism thing that it is. It's not it's not a hundred percent parties and crowd these days at any maximum correct correct. Yeah that there is something particularly good about a Scottish crowd and I guess when you get Celtic and you mix the Scottish in the Irish into one Paul. Then you don't get one and yet that game at Celtic Pot was was absolutely outstanding. The role will will always live with me. That's the thing about when we go back behind closed doors. Isn't that going to be really really strange? Just like an eerie silence kind of accompanying these Games. It's going to affect the country as well because when we're GONNA go nuts because the crowd is what gives you the heart and the passion you do. Preseason Games we'll the people like to watch but you have a different sort of. It's a little bit more relaxed. You have a cup of Tea Biscuit. Moco while you're doing it you know it's it's going to be that sort of odd because we can't even if it's a great goal we can't give it the full guns and country because he's gonNA sound plays will be looking up to the density and going what the. Hell's doing yeah. We'll try best. I'm sure we'll get used to it as as the weeks. Go on but it's not going to be anywhere near the same. It's just GONNA be an interesting experiment if happens and I'll just got my fingers crossed on tilting everything as soon as possible cam. Yeah we hope so too. We hope to hear you back in action soon. Calling these games that we missed so much. Hope you stay safe guy. We thank you so much for your time. This is awesome. Thanks guy this guy's oldest o Guy Mowbray. That was awesome on I. That's one of my favorite interviews that we've done Andrew When I told him I missed matching the day and the natural rhythms of being by calm watching games and watching match of a day match of the day on Saturday and Sunday nights on the BBC. I meant that with all my heart. It's it's just different class a radio that is to you. What like Chris Berman? Nfl Primetime was to me growing up just like Sunday night. You Watch the Games you watch your game and then you watch that to find out what happened in every other game like that was. It was just a Goto. Oh it just had these said natural rhythms of football watching life and it's by the way it's the longest running football show in the world longest running by the way. Don't you love that? His goto moment for loudest roar out of course had to come from Scottish lungs. It's where else would it come from? Remember when we played the The League Griffith Free Kick against England. By what again. That was sneakily underrated international game. And I think after that podcast I replayed that free kick ten or twelve times because it was just so just so amazing. The hairs on the back of my neck stood up unbelievable. Whatever they drink in Scotland. It's it's something. Yeah and it's funny too when he when I asked him about the Louis Suarez. Video Suarez has a category of incidents. Where if somebody just puts a tweet out saying I forgot how crazy he is like. It can be any number of things. I don't know if you saw this but I think it was the ESPN AFC account. They tweeted a video the other day. Yeah Suarez in the Copa America. Last year going in on net takes a shot. It's blocked by the keeper by his arm and Suarez. Turns to the official and appeals for a handball looks for acoustic for he gets out there and in that same game against Chile in the in the Copa America group stage. A Fan ran on the field during that match and Gonzalo Yara of Chile. The fan is like running around key wreaking havoc essentially and so your decides. I'm going to put a stop to any trips. The Fan and Suarez runs to the REF to try to get your assent Oth- right. He is one of these guys like we talked about Clint Dempsey a couple of weeks ago. How the switch? They don't talk about the switch. How it goes off with Dempsey. And he's a different guy on. The field swore his that on steroids. He's out of his mind. That's why you must read on again. It's not just plugging in. Espn article. Right Thomson Luis Suarez. Google Roy Thompson goes into his background. The poverty background he came up and I how he his love for his wife. His his dislike deep. Almost it's beyond. I suppose all Loeven Away Andrew is primal. There's a there's a primal drive but this is like hunter gatherer must provide and protect my family at all costs and he takes mentality onto the field. He is like never going back to what he came from and he will fight for his family it. That's that's the way Roy Thompson positions if now that may not be true but it's an amazing take on it and it's the only way to explain such absolute random acts of craziness on the food. I guess it's a very. It's a kind of spin on his. On field behaviour to other people must be bite? I don't know honestly honestly I am the one who went on this podcast in two thousand fourteen in an live during an interview with Dan Thomas and went to defend him and immediately after the key we were on the air he bit Kia leany. That's right we were on the window and a producer came running into the room to say that Suarez just Nicolini. We're in real time and then Dan bit me for trying to defend them. Let's see let's bite into this bag here. This is gone. It's just you are such a pro white you're taught in higher levels of institution all segues. The links coughs ipod. Gmail.com is the email Andrew Caught OFFSIDE ESPN on the INSTAGRAM's follow US new followers. I always respond to. Dm's as well it's interactive and twitter at zero soccer pod if you still go on twitter speaking speaking of twitter. This is the responses to games. We could not watch again. So I picked a few Alex Sanchez. Mexico versus the Netherlands. World Cup two thousand. Fourteen was brutal horrifying for Mexican fan to Rewatch the half to see the Robin Penalty. Right over and over. Yeah that's got hurt. No Mexico feature twice in this list. The second one is not hard to figure out. Caesar he comes up with the US. Men's national team versus Belgium which I wanted to reject but then I thought if you focus in on the Wando miss then it makes sense because really that game should be six one Belgium. I haven't gone back and rewatch the entire thing since but I have watched the Julian Green Goal Multiple Times right. There were some moments. Like that was the De'andre Edmund breakout game. They're still certain. Belgium was so good. So you could. I don't know I'm not sure I fully there are there are worse losses for me than the. Us lost to Ghana in two thousand ten. I think are more. I mean to one take in Belgium to extra time is still admirable. The Wando Miss I think adds a layer of of hurt to it so you just fast forward through the eighty seventh minute or whenever. It was the day when that happened eight minutes. What else do you Coral Wando? Another entry for our never watching that again is from an. This is from an arsenal fan on instagram. Never watching the eight to defeat to man. United ever know that was horrifying. Was that the one where anger was forced into. He was sent off for kicking a boxer. He didn't know where to go right. Yeah and he went to a bunch of this little plan where he stood there surrounded by united fans taunting him. It was almost like a one of those nineteen fifties renditions of a biblical passage. Where there's someone is taken into a crowd and they're just taunted. It was. It was awful awful. That was probably his most embarrassing moment. I would think as well Taught the mixed me cry. Indeed it does. There is a mark in the record book of a Newcastle. Five one spurs match. That that I believe never happened so this happened at the end. The final game of the two thousand fifteen twenty sixteen season. It's just amazing. That one of the Great. I mean really. It's one of the Great Tottenham Seasons in recent history and yet the way it ended it casts such a negative light over the entire season that it's almost hard. It's almost hard to look back on that year. Fund like they were rolling and then you had the awful one one draw to West Brom after that was the battle at the bridge which essentially ended their season. But you're still playing to finish ahead of Arsenal. Then they lose to Southampton. And then an already relegated Newcastle Tottenham. Just have to beat them on the final day to finish ahead of Arsenal and they get absolutely blown out of the out of the place. Five one that was that was really really bad. Really good call by Eddie Sanchez. The two thousand Eighteen Copa Libertadores second leg in Madrid. Losing that final to them. Something I don't want to relive Hashtag Baca Juniors forever years and then he won't even refer to them by name. I would doubt Eddie. Sanchez has ever said. Ever said river played without then spitting. I would very much doubt that edge war Dole at well this is the one I referenced. Rdr chilly seven Mexico. Nil Copa America. Centenario YEAH CAN I. Can I tell you something funny? Actually not that funny but I found it funny. I watched the first half at home and I couldn't believe I think most of the goals were scored in the second half. I'm not sure maybe was already in the Colombian restaurant anyway. I'm Columbian restaurant and the way the game on. And I can't believe what I'm seeing. I just can't because a genuine didn't think Chile were that much superior to Mexico. But but there were and some of the waiters were like grabbing their sides falling around laughing. So I presume they were the Colombian winters and there was other guys. Who are I? Guess where Mexican kids were absolutely crestfallen and they were kind of shouting as if making the the kind of the gesture to have. It turned off which incredible it was horrifying that game and the final one. One Guy tweeted us that his game he couldn't watch again was an NYC AFC. One one draw with rebels in the Darby and the reason he was upset was because rebels had lost. Had Two men sent off an NYSE. Still couldn't win. I was like okay. I suggested that might not meet the criteria because in the Derby. Surely you're draw. Are You win? The most important thing is you. Don't lose yeah that would be my criteria for Derby not only Andrew. Did he delete his suggestion? Event deleted his account. Oh my God grant right off. Social Media Holy Crap Yeah unbelievable. That's sad that all right. Let's move on from this frippery shadow. Larson this is unbelievable. This is this is a bit oak there actually. Jj Andrew thanks so much for continuing the podcast for all of these rough times. It's been really nice to get sock related material every week. You're very welcome. I thought I'd share some good news with you. That is somewhat soccer related. I would go as far as to say shot. It's very soccer related. And you made that way. My wife had a baby boy last week and in exchange for me agreeing to buy her two cats. What is this a fairy tale? I was a child. If you give me cats. I was able to name him after my favorite soccer club. Everton attached is a picture of baby. Everton Hunter Larson with his Everton. Beanie on hope this lifts you guys up little even though you're a Liverpool Fan. Jj thanks again for the pardon stay safe. Look I'm wife is a saint for stain. What an amazing woman shot. I just want to say that that is your kid. The picture of your kid. My God so so gorgeous. Absolutely beautiful And I think it's really cool. I just can't believe your wife allowed. Us cannot believe it and by the way because your last name Scandinavian somewhat. If you say his name quickly he sounds like a mid nineties footballer who played centre back for Norwich. Everton Hunter Larson. Every I'm trying to think of how many clubs this could work for like ever look at Everton by no means is a common name but it it could. It could work as a name. Like Liverpool is not a name Tottenham is not really a name. I'm trying to think how many clubs you could actually name your child after directly. Well I do think that Louis Louis I feel I feel. I'm sure other people did before him. But I do feel like location. Naming started with David Beckham call in one of his kids Brooklyn. I know for a fact that it's very common. You have low. Gerard was on his palm for Liverpool. You had plenty of TV's in the Merseyside region but to call them after the name of the club is wow. That's Donald Very bold very bold. What Brandon from New Jersey Place? Very close to my heart at this month marks my five year anniversary of finishing business school. I was looking through some old work and found my proposal to be a fulbright scholar in the United Kingdom. My final proposal focused on the differences in fandom and support among professional sports in the United States and the United Kingdom at the time. And still today I was fascinated. That football clubs had supporters but American professional teams had fans. Football clubs. Were steeped in tradition such as songs rituals on the like. I was curious as to why that never transferred over to major American professional sports. Nba NHL MLB NFL. Rather College. Sports are more similar in the supporter culture to that football clubs ALMA MATER. Song students have specific traditions and rituals and the importance of travelling fans that are located in specific parts of the arena. Us to people who have come to sports in different ways Andrew with his UK football club Jj adopting American sports culture wide. You think support. Your culture is so different than fan culture. Why of American Professional Sports with the exception of sock not caught onto major supporter? Traditions So I have a question. It is a great question. I have a theory on this that I assume he's talking about in stadium atmosphere because outside of that actually do think that fan culture is not all that different. In the way people follow their teams religiously. I think he's talking about in stadium atmosphere. At least that's all I'm going to read into it and I think much of that unenvious of what we see in terms of stadium atmosphere in England as opposed to what we see here not to say that Games are dull here but it's a different level of atmosphere at a primarily or a lot of European soccer matches and I think a lot of that is driven by the away section. Because I think when you are on you know somebody else's territory surrounded by your people feel this intense pride and so you're GonNa be loud and you're GonNa show that pride and then that is then met with the home crowd. Well we can't be out done in our own building by the visiting team's fan so then they have to then meet that with their own enthusiasm and I think it just creates that feel throughout a match and I i. I understand why there aren't away. Sections in American sports like teams. Don't play close enough to each other where you can have that game in game out. It's a it's a cool element of sports in England. But it's a shame because I really think that would that would go a long way in creating a similar atmosphere. I think part of it is to do with the amount of games I think the NBA 'em Obese seasons have a stultifying effect on support or culture. It is just not possible to go with every game. You can't go home and away whereas there's a home away culture in English football where the hardcore supporters travel and they. They go to the home games as well Distance makes a difference. I also think there are younger teams American sports whereas most teams in almost all teams in the top flights are certainly in the football league. All go back one hundred years. Yeah so there's this generational pass on which you would you have in college? You have that in college sports. There are kids who've never gone to Penn State whose parents had an affiliation to Penn State. And they go on. They support them. There is a depth there. There's also I think is what Brandon. I'd love to go into more depth on this. Maybe we'll get a chance to sometimes. I think there's a there's a a real understanding in the American football. Sorry the American Sports Fan that they are consumers that they are customers. You you hear American fans just talk about franchise an organization it just trips off the tongue. It's a transactional relationship in some cases. And I think if you look at it in the case of the New York Yankees if the New York Yankees next season did not win X. amount of games are Were not in the playoffs there. Attendances what absolutely plummet there will be no atmosphere in the stadiums You you wouldn't have that Leeds United lead united when they were in the third division of English football we're bringing seven thousand people to Exeter at an away game you know. There is a a depth of connection there that the fans are the club and the club are the fans. I really don't feel that is a I. There are very varies. I think there are exceptions. I think the Boston Celtics in basketball. I think The Pittsburgh steelers and the and the Green Bay packers are those exceptions but again look how long they've been going. I think the New York giants extent but not exactly not exactly. Yeah Is Right. You WanNa see money empty seats when they when they have a silky season towards the end I do think there is a fiscal a fiscal and transactional nature to sports. In the United States. That fans subconsciously are very much aware of that all factors and also to the way just the format of an American sports season. Our season playoffs so like. Let's be honest the playoffs you'll get that kind of atmosphere but if you're talking about like a mid July braves pirates like there's just some games that are just hard you know. This game doesn't really matter yet. An Andrew. I think that I think that affects in stadium support also one thing with the exception of the NHL the NHL is pretty cool soccer support and some cities. It really is an Montreal definitely for sure but I will say this about the NFL. And I will say this about the NBA as well to an extent and particularly baseball. It's impossible to get an atmosphere goal. And if it's a stop-start is that like it's noyon impossible. You see a bit of excitement. Your Pont when the offensive tackle mix this amazing play and your pumped on your on your feet and then there's this absolute just long before anything else happens and that really in football when the fullback smashes into the winger for tackle. That's the first of a continuous line of things that will happen. Yes when you say football there at the you're talking you're talking American football or soccer when when when the fullback smashes into the winger okay. I'm talking I'm talking sack right now. I don't mean to be like Joe America here my American brain defending American sports. But let's not act like soccer doesn't have its fair share of lows in the. Oh my God at absolutely but there are things continuously happening so you can sing through those things. You'd look really you know I mean in the NFL. We are compelled to sing. Things are not the. Mlb were compelled to sing things. Because there's a person in Oregon. They're they are well aware. This is deathly boring sport at times. You know let's see what else you have Liz In so Paolo Finishes Up Andrew. This is really great. I love this kind of speaks to the soul of the nation. If you will. I thought you might find it interesting to hear a nugget about Brazilian soccer on TV. During Quarantine of course sports channels have been replaying old games since all sports were suspended but one of the major channels has been showing historic games every Sunday afternoon when Brazilian are stately. Games usually happen so today they aired the original broadcast of the ninety four. World Cup. Final and had remarried will be battle calling in throughout the game to discuss it right before the penalties they showed video messages from both the Brazilian and Italian keepers about their memories of the game when Brazil won their Catra which is Third World Championship with badgers. Airball I heard cheering horns and fireworks out my window in Sao Paulo. Like I would normally hear when a big game is on. It's been a nice way to keep soccer life on remember. Some great moments in the country's soccer history awesome that people still celebrate. Something they know is happened. Like twenty. Five years ago I would say lease. They needed bittel unremarkable to call in for that game. What s Ryan all my God? If ever a World Cup final stank the place up that was it was so bad that during the game Gianluca Pagliuca fell asleep on an easy basket. Bread basket catch. It hit his arm is upper arm and hit off the post and came back to him if if people remember that game. It's stank Awful that has gone on here too. Though with because there's been a ton of games being rebroadcast I saw they on. Cbs Sports Network they replayed the Syracuse Kansas National Championship. Game and on they did a facebook live of a bunch of Syracuse figures from that Game Carmelo As you were coach old man Jim Boeheim was there. The whole team checked in and and commented on like all the behind the scenes of stuff that games. I've seen a lot of that. Which is look we all. Have this fixed that. We need to get from somewhere. So we're getting it right now through the last dance documentary and rewatching games. I got sucked in last night. J J just go on Youtube and just type in great sports moments and like so many incredible like professionally done montages of just like normal guys who just like our board and WanNa make these videos. This great stuff and I was watching. It was twenty six minutes long and I got to the end. I was like Damn. I really Miss Sports Right now. Look I cut you off real quick. There was only I think. One soccer moment in the whole montage. You know what it was Wofford Lester. I'll MUNA'S SAVES THE PENALTY. Dini scores at the other end. Our the one thing me and you will never argue about the one of the greatest passages of play we have ever seen. I'm still in that every single time I see it. I watched that back later by the way just before we get out the last dance. So I find Rodman Pippen Jerry Krause Phil Jackson. All these people absolutely compelling and much more compelling than the main protagonists no but the main protagonist is so utterly compelling from his ability to play boss. You're wrong but what no. No no no. And the reason Jordan might be compelling the crossover between him and Roy. Keane is on believable. They cannot understand people who are not as talented. A are as be driven as then. They can't get into their heads. But you're not suggesting though that like the Jordan interviews aren't compelling that'll when he's talking about the hate that he still feels today for Isaiah Thomas and the no but we've done that's compelling in the same way Roy Keane is compelling. He has the same. Hey Roy Keane still right now has the burning fires that Jordan's still has but it's why they could never be cautious. An have failed as coaches. In terms of Roy Keane as they relate to the common player. I don't relate to the common player but by the way before people start chiming in Jordan was a more skillful player than Roy. Keane was soccer player. But Roy Keane and Jordan to quote from the last dance did their jobs better than anybody in sports and the employee has ever done their jobs. That's a fact. And when I when I hear Michael Jordan talk unlike keen and Jordan are cut from the same stolen. They couldn't possibly understand mediocrity. They couldn't understand players who didn't want it as much as them like they. They couldn't understand failure much like myself. Which is why this podcast is just grueling? Weakened weak out for me. That's a reference to you you you make it hard. I don't nobody's buying anymore. Go in love. This is the highlight of your week. And don't even lie about so low bar but yes that is in fact true. These are tough man can. Can I say the final thing? Say before we get out I I was going to bed the other night and I was kind of feeling a bit side because the next day was gonna be a bit late today had just passed and I thought both when we went into the studio to preview the World Cup final and we had a James Monte Yuan from Zagreb. I remember that interview to talk about Croatia and the country. And we just did this brilliant. World Cup preview. I'm so proud of that. And then me and you got out and we went for a burger and a beer and all probably through that period. I'm thinking how can we make the PODCAST bread? Or how can we things on a now? I reflect on that time. How good was life? How amazing was that? What a fund. That was a fun day. I remember Yeah I dunno I these things. These thoughts have been sustaining me. Yeah Oh there will be good days again. Trust me there will be good days again. I just know it. I'm sorry Andrew but you're not a man that can deliver a line like that and deliver hope. There will be good days. There will be good days again. This was fun. This was a day. I enjoyed this. I enjoyed Guy Albert. He was great to talk to our thanks to Hindi gave us a lot of time there. That was really really fun. Hey we'll do this again next week to you. I say check later on board. Take Care Listening to call. Offsides soccer podcast.

"This is Rebecca Lowe will rebecca. If. You listen to sub optimal radio and you on this thing to men in Blazers on the NBC. Sports Network. From the embassy row studios in the crap part of Bedford new. York Roach. You won't believe it the crap part of Austin. Texas, it's the men in Blazers podcast. We back like Eric Dia from the toilet only all in a way in the next essential toilet right now. Existential, there's nothing existential about the toilet roll in every last night's debate my good Lord. It's been a it's been a tough week I I must say I need football. More never we've all had a tough week keep yapping man off we need football I don't know football doesn't matter football's relevant nothing matters I know ever talk of the League and the all you WanNa do is care about football football has never meant less and it's precisely at the moment when football has never been more relevant, the football has never meant more honesty I feel where you texted me that late last night and football means nothing and I was like that's why it means everything. Don't Paul Monday Champs for. For reflection what is reflects ads he spent the day reading Viktor Frankl's man's search for meaning it's an incredible book wave, the core, a notion Dave of tragic optimism I. Love Tragic Optimism. Franco rights, and this was in the forty s he writes the woulld is in a bad state but will become worse unless each of us does that best which is pretty much approaching football, Dave and life with a sense of tragic optimism we've gotTa do our Best Mate Yeah I. do think that if Everton were in mid table where Chelsea are and Chelsea were top right now you would be saying but football doesn't matter. It's all. Let's focus on. The end of the world but there we go. It's like well relative. I'm glad it's giving you pleasure the Roach I and surely took a little bit on Friday jeff o p the ball podcast last week. Interviewed for a book by an Everton. Legend. The Club historian David France and incredible blow look him up. If you were beliefs found in America, he now lives in Arizona and we talked at length about Carlo, Ancelotti, delirious dizzying competing run, and after about fifty minutes of conversation tone changed David is a remarkable. Intellectual curious human being with the voice Lloyd he asked me to. Do. Knew The true reason for the club's incredible start the season won't David and he proceeded to tell me. With a straight face, how his wife has begun to perform a rain dance around the arid CACTI in his backyard before kickoff and thus Everton have book Anita Glory and I love this mental image but then a day as much as Rivera's role as the heart and soul of Everton football club he was sadly mistaken because. Evidence transcendent transition is a curve for one reason. One reason only, and that is my family adopted a lost dog three weeks ago David and we called. We called it hippo after the greatest Everton player of his generation. Tony Hibbert Tabo has come into our life evidence have won every bloody single game. They've played just blasting goals for fun and to me. I mean Hitler ugly dog a dog genuine they not my favorite thing in the House but God love brings a kid pleasure and to me the joy of football. David right now in this moment this moment of chaos to growing human beings booth long-suffering Blues, fans having an hour long dream few conversation built on pure fantasy poppycock and the VAT is tragic optimism.

DUBB's an eye for the men in Blazers on ice series and it will watch it change your life to glory to passion and to the hockey which is. An. Incredible television product, who caveat a true light and the darkness and I come. Wait fade to come back. Okay. Let's get into the football Liverpool Street arsenal one, your KLOPP and Co make it nine points from nine. But it was actually asmal who hit first on twenty five minutes against the run of play a rare Andy Robbo mistake Rod. He bleeds real blood like the rest of us are not just I end like a Scottish Superhero his mistake Alexander. To bumble one Pasta Alison to put the gun up that lead lasted all of three minutes Liverpool onset through incisive move. Do they do any other moves and Saudia money finish and in the thirty four? Th minute proof that Robbo is made from ghetto does he latched onto a? Able to make it to one Portuguese debutante Diogo Jota straight out of the black joy bounce one into make it three and secure the points. Liverpool's title defense very much intact Braulio. The first true acid test of. Policies yes and FA Cup yes. Community Shield. Yes. Wins Against Full Ham and West. Ham All the time. Oh How How does he do known HAM Games Dave in the biggest games against the champions champions has the would how many if only they'd said that should have said that in the locker room before the guys champion, you can't spell champions without. They went to fail. Well, they've not one since two, thousand twelve and the big talking point deadly centreback I start the season might walking around with a kick-me sign on your back on the post it you stuck there yourself and the game began Cagey Liverpool paying the greatest respect. They didn't apply the ruthless high press from the off the two teams they felt each other out robea when Trent surging down both flanks. The advantage but it can serve an apply asam exploded into life with the football. Rip from our Tatters Dreams Counterattacking Football Mayton Niles with a deft touch into space and knock in across and again early Motif of Liverpool Season Dave, Defensive Slip Today's leads. It was Virgil Van Dyke this term Robo. Clearance to. Knock it. Lack. Miss take from. Range, but it wobbled three games, three goals for him a seismic shot. Yeah. I was just thinking. It doesn't really matter livable conceding goals if they continue to school this many and so beautifully. But. Yes. Seismic especially seismic because Astle haven't won the game away against a big sex in twenty seven long matches and when liberal pull ended up, they could not hang I mean Liverpool responded really liked champions I have been two minutes twenty seven seconds cater putting David Luiz. Into the box defenders leaving the chat all over the place, and he stunk a Stinger Delano buried many many product, and then seven minutes they to sell Selah to trend across the box robos ever gifted arsenal. The lead left alone free to prevent fill to convert restore normality fat. Mistake and then scoring the winner very much like v against lease sign of the. Unwillingness to settle right David because I'm looking for complacency in Liverpool with success and I'm not seeing any you've left back is there to like profitable home. It's amazing. Just the way that Liverpool moved throughout this game the way they played how aggressive they were. It was at a certain point in that second half and when Diogo Jota came on I think he could have scored seven. They were just all over them. Yeah I mean Joe to put the game away eventually fifty seven million dollars iota receiving football's equivalent of a papal blessing a hug and then finally deflecting a debut goal of a blow endeavoured Louise headed clearance by fascinated in that second half David Awesome did flicker on the counter ultimately the chances photo lacquer and not Ober Lacquer Alison one on one. I was blown away by two things. Number one Liverpool away they guarded against counter with such impressive Focus Joe. Gomez unreal but. said one on one you feel light. Compared to other goalkeepers in this primarily, he's odds changing I mean you can really see attack as question themselves as he strolls towards some so handsome. So her shoot so suave little can take risks at the back. Because they know we've allison is almost a risk mitigate. Yeah. There's a time we used to laugh a Brazilian goalkeepers and he is just so good Alan is like he's a man mountain he's incredibly agile. He has his reading the game is so good he so consistent, just very very, very tough to beat look whereas the weakness in this liberal side, we can fantasize wanted the defensive weaknesses. We saw them dominate force Chelsea into so many mistakes last week I would say that Chelsea losing two nil with only ten men is slightly better than arsenal losing three one with eleven men. But the Liverpool with dominance. Again, they forced arsenal into mistakes frankly that David Luiz header out was not the worst offensive Hetero certainly. I've ever seen certainly not the worst defensive had I've ever Seen David Luiz make that was one of his best defensive headers of all time. Best the shouted the ball fell right to the feet of Jerry Talk. They just take advantage of you and they make you look ordinary and honestly Liverpool despite all of this. Early excitement at Arsenal, which I think is justified. Liverpool made Asmal look ordinary. I. Would say that the slightly scary thing for the rest of the Premier League is the I. Don't think livable of played anywhere near their best football yet and I think you look at the other teams that are even managing to compete with them Leicester Everton and I think they've played some of their best football. I don't think we've seen Liverpool play their best football. Yeah. They begin the season with nine points out of nine sixty, one home games unbeaten. Now a simmering ever mixed impressively of all. This is the pressing no smug self satisfaction evidence even as. On paper all losing points on grass, they faced up to fended off all my leslie now Chelsea and Arsenal back toback. Only that money Labrador leads truly during blood city as we'll discuss, seem shell-shocked Chelsea heated off the pace burs. Shadow of what they were in our imagination. Premier League Teams Be Very Afraid Aston Villa next then Everton in the showdown winner takes all titled Decide. That will circled ahead of the season we knew it would be the big one. Absolute David new shame losing UNFIL- this the for them. Well, how'd you handicap what you saw from mckellar tatters team? Well. Look it's tough. I mean everything about football is about points of view and Arsenal still. Feel that they've got that great momentum from that two wins at the beginning of the season before going to Liverpool. In fact, this was no better and I would say worse than Chelsea's loss against Liverpool because it was eleven versus eleven, they went one nil up. But then they got hammered frankly after that did show some signs of life on the counter attack but we're talking about can arsenal top fourteen before the Game Jurgen Klopp said oslo-based better than eighth place last season. I'm not sure. That we've seen enough evidence right now to think they are going to be. Definitely a top four team that they all gonNa Finish way higher than the league places we'll just have to see just have to see they do remain a work improved a team that could not live. We've Liverpool football club when they raised their game and you look at this Liverpool squad now, and this is the thing that terrifies me every single player knows they have eight define role right down to Minamino and Joe. Now, even Bloody Sha you look at they saw snow team and you recognize they have so many players who are still still passengers and that midfield still conundrum they need to play a who brings home as the best of Jacker. And BIOS combined. Maybe no our our tattoo admitted game. We're on the different journey they live together for five years. They weren't able to do that after one or two seasons not arsenal to me. Where definitely do I think? They will be able to limp away from feel with pride intact and many many lessons to learn which is not nothing and do believe I do believe they can look in the mirror right now and say top four why not? Okay, Raj? Manchester. City. To Leicester City five astonishing and to be honest we've seen this man city defensive implosion movies so many times before it's not that astonishing after falling behind to react Meraz worldly quote you wrote right Into the Wolf Blitzer Situation Room less bounce back and just batter batter Manchester City. The Fox's comeback was highlighted by Jamie Vardi hat a cracking goal by Montpellier. Messy James Madison and a Yuri Tillman's penalty lester a top of the table Raj Lester our top of the table off going into this Man City so many injuries Gabrielle Jay's during Socio Guero a setback was left city. Any senior sense of foods led to rent might play then machines and I much most manages pet properly. Shocked that not every one of his players could be a machine like his son Phil Foden but despite a lack city open light peak cat barely allowing less touch the ball in the opening exchanges dividends who needs strike is when you got Riyadh Moore's. Espinar ball so hard they even Volkan overrule ago. They couldn't even come up with any clues. To get rid of it. It was. A fantastic strikes meaty. Oh, just remembering it makes nipples tingle and he sat back there a city at another goal knocked off for offside delight. This is going to be vented city performance. And it turned out to be very much a vintage city performance but not in a good way in the nine losses last season way in the. Way. The other city emerged of the week backline Vaud revealed Leicester's game plan. After the final whistle said, we knew we would shoot the ball. So we set out to infuriate them a trying to keep the likes of Rhodri off that ball, and so it was months eighty shamefully unable to defend a bull into the channel Vertigo goal side of Car Walker Clip Tim a penalty hit so hard that Jeffrey PR video gruesome tweeted Fonte the penalty is if the bullet made fun of his wife, why can't city defend a simple ball played in behind Dave In value using all of his experience Rhodes Cutler lines on his face now is looking a little bit. He's got some years on those wheels Raj from miles issue have experienced. Now launch it don't come for that twelfth red. Bull. Before the game twelve is one too many. He managed to get goal side and he managed to create the contact. We've seen him do it so many times just brilliant move a naive defending captured city. Over and over again, may the say mistake and did not learn for me and could not close it down sixty minutes later, another ball played into the channel like thermal exhaust port on the death star Costanza this time charging down the right flank slung the ball across the face of the area for the touched from the medicine and essentially I've watched it several time pre. Sure vote he pulls Edison's pants down in front of the world gives him a Wedgie what clipping the ball with the most impudent cheek of a chip garage Jamie bandied out finish it was it was really it was. Five two, it was unbelievable to watch not just how poor city were by how less that didn't feel the mythologised complete lack of respect. But once again experienced, it was just remarkable. Remarkable goal was seen him before his experience. He knows what he's going to do sense memory before the balls even crossed brilliant stuff and the penalties kept coming Garcia next to ever tripping var the ball into the channel again, forty penalty. Knowing goals in ten games against pap e proper hates bulls. Jamie volatility thirty, three, thirty, four years of age not slowing down a credit in all seriousness. Brendan Rodgers who is a compromise for these game making sure the runs he makes an hour efficient ones wasting as little energy as he used to wage pre-game Red Bull brand-new just twenty-one touches. The whole game for the three goals founding father James. Madison wrapped up the game where they stunk. An emphatic exclamation point on an incredible performance by Brendan Rodgers. Right. Credit. Yeah, absolutely. We Make Fun of lot. This was a fantastic performance. This is a team. Every year, they get raided for more players. This year chill well off to. After Chelsea he finds New People to fill the gaps. He's. He's got them. So organized got them. Well, coach he has the motivated he's getting performance out of Jamie Body like really I'm very impressed I'm very impressive Lester signature win against a big opponent that's alluded him. He will raise hopes before wilting later in the season. But for this weekend shoots credits abroad is such a baiter who try so desperately to be an Alpha and on this day was it was. His tactics. So excellently executed by his team which didn't just deliver victory, but really a dictionary definition bare-bottom spanking of humiliation to pet guardiola at home west city first time since nineteen, thirty, three that team have won the first three games I win against pep. Let the height began. But let's talk man city Dave whom it should be said they went down really without a whimper thing it was the first time. In his entire managerial careers conceded five he was just on the sidelines scratching his wrist towards final whistle ballooning they didn't want to play. They just wanted to counterattack I mean what? What, what do you make it? I'll give you my my blanket statement to explain a lot of football right now is that we are three games into the season Nancy to your only two games into the season, and so it's very tough to read too much into it. They have so many injuries man city will be way better than this. However, the problem is, is that we're Liverpool off to a perfect start with three games. Everybody's looking at these teams and saying who is going to compete against Liverpool this season, it puts pressure on every performance it puts pressure on your bench puts pressure on everything, and this is scary right now it's scary was going on in the Premier League I. Don't think the primarily can afford another season where liberal run away with it and it's super early stuff can turn. But right now, it doesn't look very good. Liverpool Kansas City chiefs who wins I mean yes. City had big players out KUNA guero J. to slap poor but so did lester dd but does this excuse us because I've thinking if Frank Lombardo Ole was coaching this outline making those mistakes they would be derided and it's shocking to say so much become the real Manchester City this this last year at the back quick question who's defenses worse right now Manchester. United Chelsea city if one of them had to play for Your Life I'd give my life for Dave. Manipulated Chelsea or city who would you believe in based on this evidence city with these injuries conceding five to Leicester? That's probably as bad as it probably as bad as it gets term, Chelsea is still betting in new defenders. We do imagine that Yoga will be better than he was in his debut. We'll get to that. It's pretty close between all of them. Maybe just ended city going to try and solve the problem by spunky eighty, four, million dollars on Ruben Diaz. From Benfica, and strengthening further by sending Mendy in the opposite direction. But Pat Spend this is amazing finally twenty million dollars on twelve defenders say for it city. So the Chances Diaz will be the new the pool or the new Johnstone's autumn and the only time will tell but incredible staff at the final whistle since leaving man city mckellar tetter had lost. Less game six seven. Now Guardiola's eight and I know this is just city second game of the season and the rule is to resist being the jerk. But this inability to defend against a confident counter leaks back to last season and I'm what's the seconds takeout? This game I thought was this David I cannot imagine pap is going to be at city. In a year's time, he is such an intense, such, a perfectionist obsessive and to be unable to correct his team's defensive floor from from a human perspective watching for him. The same mistake on repeat will take an incredible psychological toll incredible and I'm already starting to think who who could be cities next manager and does his name rhyme with Welsh melodies Stephen. Might get might rhyme with Raj. Coming sue okay ranch. We're going to be back in just one minute to mourn the hamble rule but I this quick content filled break. Okay. Raj.

Okay, Roach I believe Chelsea have a few players out on loan at Pohang steelers Matt. Me Ask a love system K-league on Fubo and I'm thinking they may need to send out a few more West Brom three Chelsea three just a routine drawer just a routine brought one of the most bizarre primarily games in recent memory, which is really saying something Chelsea just employed going down to three three first-half goals to the newly promoted baggies before storming back to snatch a point behind second half strikes from all the babies Roach Mason Mount Callum Hudson, note And a nine hundred third minute, Tammy Abraham. Equalizer. There's a football game more an advert for talk. Space. Both boating's Roach sponsored to talks. I need it right now in the face another came another astonishing spectacle and that don't mean being beaten. Up by a place, disinterested destroyed off to take a crap during the game. I mean West Brom? Three. Chelsea nail within twenty eight minutes of the first half a first off that Chelsea has he dominated they finished three down a symbol of the fact that they've conceded forty two goals now, since last season started the most in the primarily while wasting chance zillion often tell me Abraham missing a close range shot the tell me when at all Tammy Faye smashed. Verner will say record one of the ball and three David Luiz? Worthy defensive switch off swamp and debutante. Captain Thirty six year old Te'o. Silva men that couple with some shop back east finishing off time was shell shock and the question they with no capper out for Willie. Caveat with twenty eight, Million Dollar Edward mendy watching that could be no scapegoat turns out. It wasn't Kep is what? Chelsea have committed more errors. This season with regains in than they did in the entire last season literally. OPTIMA KEEP TABS on errors. The seems like a very newfangled cystic comes in baseball, but they have committed more errors three games into the season than they did in the entirety of losses I said last week we'll happening livable. You got a player sent off you miss a penalty like everything goes wrong for you can see the most brilliant goal you goalkeeper makes the worst mistake ever made mystery nothing like that's ever going to happen. To Chelsea again, this season literally in the next game, they can see three goals every single one of them off a pure defensive era against West. Brom? I mean despite is he said dominating the game it is ludicrous. What is happening I? Don't know what has happened I don't know you know what very very bad thing Frank Lampard has done, but it's all going against him running you just how we forget tactics forget club culture. Forget. Forget the DNA the team. This is just about comb. You must have done bad things in a past life. Is that where we? Don't know how to explain these individual I mean look Tiago Silva. Club culture I mean really that era he described as the worst thing that's ever happened to him on a football field at any age at any level that he's ever played I take a step back said they want to talk about yoga so I I, I want contextualized him twenty defensive lineups INFO one games, Franklin Poach Chelsea do have the balance of Brendan. Rodgers Liverpool still. School for League six-year-old Rogers Independence and amid failed that doesn't seem to truly link with the runs of nuclear space in front of the bat line. But yeah, explain yourself from it and not the mistake, but he's genuinely baffling to me why Chelsea would buy player h thirty, six from the elephants graveyard the they probably got to fend off into Miami is the only other takers. Yeah I mean I dunno looked IAGO SILVA was fantastic last season with PSG. Imagine he's going to be a little bit better than he was against West Brom. I. Watched him play alarm, just grow manage expectations, set the ball low to yoga, and then just get better every week and you're right Chelsea of not ever found under Lampard best defensive lineup, and they might not have the best defensive lineup amongst any of these players. I would say that after getting sent off last week, I thought Christianson was actually fantastic in this game and they do have very inconsistent performance. Some whigs Zuma looks fantastic. Some early season to Maury looked amazing. He's never really found a lineup that he feels comfortable. He's never had a goalkeeper. He's been comfortable with and we'll see where it goes next in his defense other than that mistake. Which of course was you? Go played pretty well, and he's he's e. t looks pretty smooth that he actually looks like I hate to say it, but he doesn't like the best defender. Lot about defense but other than that mistake he does look like our best defender maybe the best one we've ever had on the lamp. Yeah, you dislike. Rationalizing like the bench show to fitness and we just need Zayat Chin Palesa. Data. All the pain go away is that what you're saying to yourself, we've seen early in this season. With their one win with one draw and with. With that lost to Liverpool, we've seen Chelsea, and by the way also in the to Care About Cup games, we've seen every version of Chelsea that exists there the delta between their highs and their lows is absolutely massive were they will settle will be somewhere in the middle. If it's closer to their highs, it's going to be a good season. If it's closer to their lows, it's going to be an awful season and Frank Lampard won't be at the club. So look for me I. Think it's still a little bit too early to tell I think what they did in the second half. You can be very very critical about the first half. You can say that was awful we haven't seen. The team comeback from three-nil down since two thousand eleven in the Premier League very few teams of ever done it and I think what they did in the second half was spectacular. It was the babies to the rescue and I think this is significant Rajaram. The baby's we've set a lot. He's given up on the babies the babies of all gone. It's all about the big expensive signings. It was the babies who got Chelsea back into this game goals for Mason Mount who kicked it all off from Hudson Doi, and as you said in stoppage time from Tammy Abraham and that was significant, it's fascinating and West. The last their team building I mean they were the guys the Callum Hudson. Change. His introduction changed the game in Mason. Mount scored striking pastor flat footed goalkeeper who didn't even die Bill Capela and training show one Tude we've Chi have finished small Lake West Promo Twenty minutes yawning in front of them they all make made it ninety fifth minute recycled Corner Slot. Tammy. Broken Broken West. Brom. Hartson. We'll say. Go out to all my West Brom support inmate or halftime texting me say remain never watch football again after this one, I'll say save that first forty five minutes. Let that joy last forever. But you find that significant after spanking several hundred, million dollars it was year three homegrown babies, formulas theory of team building the build your own well although that callum Hudson outdoor goal really did a lot to have that was a pretty nice little move. Pretty Nice little moment of play so. But. Yeah. Look I. Think it was significant in terms of the teams mo Jo but look this is how I really feel about it Chelsea school six goals this season, and we've missed a penalty and we played one half with only ten men offensively it will be fine. They'll figure out a way to go and play with each other defensively, and this is the big question about ending Gull because we've bought a goalkeeper we have no idea how good he is. He's a Mendy. No idea we have. No, it doesn't happen his name so. It's A. We have no idea and defensively, this team have got to figure out how to make it work defensively there is no evidence right now based on a season and to regain the football, they have figured it out on the line part how to play defensively unless they do it will not be a good season and Lamport will not be long for the world at Chelsea. This is not a patient owner it does does not work like that at Chelsea? Football Club. I mean that is the question after this hidden Chelsea match day that the whole question of whether we're doubting whether the club Deanna Plateau Messiah coach thing. Is maybe not all it's cracked up to be an increasing heat lamps. As is a fascinating piece of narrative. Chelsea fans out the final whistle. We like mental tenacity grind these boys just don't quit or we like a shame shame APP Finney Sixteen tweeted both dead inside a heart is racing and I'll make Jeff O p New Orleans. Pelicans Josh Heart. Huge. Chelsea Fan tweeted you don't always have the best games as a team but fighting back from three nail takes mental toughness to me the rules are now. The, whatever points Chelsea gleaned from any game where they wear those red and blue shirt should automatically be awarded to crystal. Palace David you agree. Having seen the sure actually on television I don't think crystal. Palace had any and the you know they're mice logic. Steve is my mate I don't think Crystal Palace had any right that should is not read it is pink wrote it is Bright Pink Crystal Palace of never water picture in their entire history I think That is the worst. I have ever seen in the primarily, I will be amazed of Chelsea word again, this season amazed I think palace should take that point and any united win in there's a briquet should be given to the World Wildlife Fund Palace should. Should want more than a point from job and I think that very, very disappointed with that result in. Okay. Now to a section of the pod title handball rule and how it has destroyed football the first chapter Tottenham one Newcastle, one spurs were heading for pragmatic one nil win. Thanks to twenty Fifth Lucas. Moore. Goal, but an injury-time Hail Mary to. Soar the Geordie bovine head the ball into the back of Eric Dies on there was just no way this was intentional or could have been avoided but under the new handball role or rather. The interpretation, the new hamble role, the Tumor Walk Penalty Cattleman, Wilson blasted home, and at the Final Whistle Steve Bruce seemed as conflicted about the point is that thirteenth by accident, leave the shop with when you've only paid for twelve. Pie Analogy we've all been there. Let you don't love Pie cost the first stone I did dream the night before this game for real that Gareth Bale made his debut and we've is I search just from the from the corner flag airy was he just dropped a bomb into the net and it was absolutely magnificent four more ignificant than anything that actually did happen in this game because the story of this one was the hamble ruled the premier league becoming like the NBA in which. You really only need to tune in for the final seconds of action in football's case to watch the crazy decision which determine the result Eric Dire. Well, really it was just penalized for having homes they swarmed by fulltime six games Kurd, and three of them at ended with fans knowingly stupefied by default replication of the Humboldt rule the rule not the application is giving football a serious problem Dave. This is not why we watch as well. It does have something to do with our Raj. It does have something to do with it's not vast fault but Var giving those slow motion replays allows. Referees with a video monitoring slow motion to see things that they wouldn't catch with the naked eye and they make things seem unnatural. That is the word that's in the rule making yourself unnaturally bigger allows them to see things in slow motion that they wouldn't see with the regular I all they'd let go with the regular. I these are not penalties that are given and then far confirms these penalties that are not given that Var then overrules and they become and they become penalties. The whole, unnaturally bigger line was brought into the hamble role to stop people from defending crosses by sticking their arms way out and then saying, oh, it wasn't intentional when it hit my arm, it wasn't intent the ball hit my arm I didn't move my arm towards the ball. That's why it came in. It didn't come in to stop Eric dire jumping in the air which he has to use his arms to. Jump in the air he's not even facing towards Andy Carroll Andy. Cow Doesn't know where he's heading the ball off the back of his head and hits Eric Darren the arm that is not what this role was written for I can't believe that the Premier League and the Premier League refs can't find a way to change their interpretation of this idiotic rule. It's dumb it's dumb. It's so annoying it's not just the FAA WILL FOOTBALL RULE I? FAB With I. Fab where they've changed hamble to make it an automatic offense of something, which is, as you've all lated shades of grey. There are so many ways they. Can hit an on the position of the arm, the placement, the proximity and I do know the difference. In those gray areas and need to be allowed to use that judgment. And it's the strict interpretation which is killing us all right now to me and the referees to me are blameless, which is one of the Premier League snapped into action on Tuesday and announced they will allow Premier League referees to show quote, Greater Leniency and humble decision starting from this coming weekend. All Hail subjectively because no one no one was saying the biggest problem where football is the needs to be more handball penalties given one no-one no-one they would they were fixing a problem with no one's issuing. Evanston suddenly benefited from this weekend. Enjoyed it. Just the rules. Then, it can. It was worth it to watch marines stormed down the tunnel with the game still going on with the Irish goodbye I can imagine him in the locker room afterwards, just telling every DA. Immediately cut off his arms in front of the whole team. It's the only solution perhaps worse news for Spurs Sun Hung Men will be out until the international break following a hamstring, pull a darkness. He's the ultimate athletic, Marino two way player you the alley and it's going to change spurs is absence not sure what's going on health? Wise but they love what was possibly the cabin cups moment of the season yesterday Eric Tire run off the field. Yes. Mid Game to take crap putting new meaning into the spurs motto Dave to dare to Poop. Indulgent ball from huma traps you any wall, a crap sweaty walls Eric. And they were David. They were Brighton to Manchester United Three. This is not a crazy game for the opening campaign with that woeful loss to palace gonNA and Co needed a last minute penalty to escape the crossbar challenge world champions. Brighton. Again, game with so many familiar tropes. Breaking Disrespectful Neil Mo- pay. Followed by the troll Easter celebrations, Lewis Dunk, own-goal Marcus Rashford, moment of pitch, perfect poise, and shoddy united defending that allowed. Solly march to level the score an injury-time. But in the final seconds pay handled a slab head buzzer beater in the area Bruno Fernandes Cooley deposited the penalty putting Polish on the United fingernails which have been down to nubs. Bedlam. bonkers bedlam united second game of the season. Already an exhausted wounded looking team being painted as if the campaign was already at a crossroads modern football and I'll say for Ole probably Graham Potter Embroi- In not the opponent if want face, he's a canny tactician able to ship this little chess pieces around the board incoming fashion almost paid off marcus. Rashford. At put united ahead to attacking that broken-bat line as if it was the British government a goal, all the better because it was thrashed in off Louis don't bottom. Be Noisy done just down tools to control the game played the opposite, the team that thrashed in with pretty much the same team back in June, and that is what is so weird about what genus united team they're playing such slack. Jawed Cumbersome Football Pogba so deep, he could gain traction Madij, Dave lumbering around like player on loan from the Chicago fire took about the crazy last couple of minutes in a second but you get dragged back deeper and deeper Brighton Post off the post brain and the crossbar a love news name. I think they hit five Times Jeff O. P. S Wiggle said Roy and then the goal posts like Connell Marianne they normal people meant to be together but can't quite stop getting in their own way. Why is this united team suddenly cumbersome? Is it just fatigue David well let's also give Brighton some Credit Raj Brighton are a really good football team and they seem to be much improved football team only have three points to show for the season a fantastic open game performance against Chelsea in which they still managed to lose three one. Dan a a great last weekend before this weekend this loss against man united, which really deserve at a point out of. And yes the United Struggle against points man united looked fantastic such as that Marcus Rashford moment of just beauty But other than this, they just looked very unseen competed. Yes. You know their season ended incredibly late. They have not a lot of time to play with each other but definitely, there's going to be just like I have concerned about. Chelsea. I'm sure they're united. Fans have real concern about their team manager right now, and then at the last I Brighton Salty Marsh Equalizer in the ninety fifth minute, which was like watching the walks when the battle of Endo hunnam being wiped out as they celebrated glory, this was heat bucks game to enter the game scrap in the Brighton Books Clinton's off the line Brian Survive the red blue the full time whistle. But the game can restore in the event of Avar Check Var check it did and then the fray a little maguire had headed the ball and inflict off Neil Mo- page hand ref when to check the pitch side monitor won't madness descended upon this day. How did you understand it? This one actually I I completely understand. Why it wasn't cool but the naked eye, this one actually was probably all the hamble decisions. This weekend was the one that was most hand bully. Mopey seend seemed somewhat deliberate getting his hands up there. In the way so I'm not surprised I, think this might have been given in previous seasons is what I'm saying script writing brilliant. mopeds scored with Chica. Penalty given away by Bruno, Fernandez, and that just proved to be flying too close to the sun a cruel symmetry. He conceded the less I can penalty Bruno, of course, smashed it away the. Man Football. So poetically, devastating sports, gods, they are sick folks and he ended the game crumpled in tears like A. If it is only intention was to start a beef with the sun bright and as you say so much quality della feel grieved true dog miss. But as Graham Potter said, we'll take courage spirit and quality out this game he's gone to look. At the next potch neck manager after marinas burned down total portrait, Southampton Vibes, you know. Nothing to see here. Right Dave I till the impressive totally deserve when they march on crisis over new buys needed, right? Yeah. But I think will more about united after the international break what we've seen from them the first two games, the game against palace, that loss and this game against Brighton. We're not seeing the best of them yet. I think we will see better I. Hope we will see better oleg is he good enough resounding. Again as a narrative, let's forget that forty match beaten run to project restart. Do need cover in midfield out the backup talk you know panic buys on the most hilarious panic buys right Marouane Fellaini I'm imagining Jaden Sancho deleted these contact watching this game new phone who? Now faces up to Tottenham Chelsea arsenal and Everton in four of the next five games buckle up laser fans. Okay. Sheffield united nil leads united one Sheffield versus the United. She told you not to worry about Marcelo be else's primarily new boys get their second win on the spinning this Yorkshire Dhabi thanks to the premise NC double A. Connect one year at Wake Forest Jack Harrison to recruited by Harvard's Patrick Bamford for an eight minute had leads a flying Roger. First Yorkshire Derby since two, thousand and one, a Yorkshire should say, what about a vast? No nonsense beautiful northern part the country once an industrial powerhouse. Football teams have declined the industrial base has declined back to great clubs from two magnificent cities to charismatic characters as manager one local one loco in a normal year. This would have been the mice cacophonous of games that it wasn't deprived Sheffield united one of the. Steepest advantages, cracking game both goalkeepers. Immense one in the end by Patrick Bamford doubted mocked derided in the championship but in three primarily games the ex Chelsea. Striker three primarily goes. It's amazing to watch him live out his dreams. Real, David Yeah it is and credit to him just kept on struggling away. Forging his career must have tremendous self-belief. He is one of the breed of an EPA class football, any loan after loan after load. So much doubt. So much lack of belief that he could actually make it in the top flight. This is first real chance of a manager that believes in him to watch him, actualize it, and says delirious fashion humanly elated for West Ham, four wolves nil this is another Result in a weekend of remarkable football results. This one actually in some ways was the most extraordinary David, Moyes was not present ma-maybe. A clue after testing positive for Kobe but his counterattacking irons get their first win of the season despite only having thirty eight percent of the ball. They bludgeoned wolves behind Jared Bowen. Ralph Jimenez Own goal and a Sebastian Allah injury-time header walk in the Spirit of Santos happened in this one Roger, I mean win the case. Get Well Soon David Moya's remove working is all of our new reality we have to say is absence colored windows. You would have watched West Ham the stars of this game mcallen Tonio Jared Bowen Thomas Back Aka. None of the big names that they have splurged ill-advised amounts of money on and one game doesn't solve what West Ham's many deeply buried in that culture problems. The words of third of an owner David Sullivan from last week's interview. Still wringing my as we chase dreams brew a pile of players to flops a- leaving me depressed and David Moyes targets are too pricey. The plan. That's the alternative lyrics to the third verse of we're forever blowing bubbles isn't it? Could literally put us. Boys get. Up to four. Players. Plumbing bubbles. Whether five always wondered why the funds cry when they sing song panicked still rail for one weekend have.

Palace versus said Topa the table clash Rebecca layovers Raj Darby when it gets wealth Saha loser has to say Yannick Lessee them's rules I couldn't sleep the night before this game I was tingling at such nuclear levels of anticipation. I'd like to be hyperbolic. Dave, but it felt like. The Future of democracy hinged on the outcome of this top of the table. Is that good news that means that democracy is going to be fine. Yes cling onto just. Absolute fiction. That's my life right now Dave Oh because in perhaps twenty twenty s craziest yet. They really want your game a free flow in lovely football run. Yeah. Two very good teams. WHO definitely know how they're trying to play football? and. Very very competitive, very, very, very tough, and of course, close the game ultimately turned on the cruel jewels verbal my God evidence I go beautiful s with the hockey assists ripped from my dreams the bull to spring born again shameless Coleman. Foot it's. It's. Tell. You. Happen I'm David, how did I go happen I Everton scored a stunning goal with collective movement Intelligence Clinic Keleti. It was almost say it was like if I woke much of me waking one morning looking in the bedroom mirror and just seeing my face with a full head of hair just ruining my hands it was shocking. It was like watching the Labrador the basketball in bird pops shocking the. With long range straight day five feet shown his range from outside the box Rogers six yard box, but it was from outside the thought. It was amazing to say, but that was the end of a beautiful move. The slide rule stop it was triangles triangles mom it was a really beautiful to can I'm GonNa go muffled for a minute. Greatest Roma. Stuff from score the. First five goals of the season came from nine shots all from the center, the goal. No further away than the penalty spot. But why admire by is how we create space separation especially on set-pieces a receiver find a corner represses Royal Line of scrimmage, and even when he tinkle's himself misses, it happens to all of us is amazing that he creates. Space, every time I. had the thickening the tingling passed out what we scored. Oh why who trained tweeted somebody for the love of God take the room and away from Roger Ready but module short-lived Palace, day records and Palestine tenacious that compact and. Efficient front, Townsend a corner. Everton love to leak to set pieces Kouhyar Tae hit the ball in the warm place. Right is tiny ham giving away of needless corners. Especially when they don't defend that wealth from set pieces. You know it looks unstoppable and live action. When you watch the replay, it didn't look so good for Jordan Pickford. But Credit Palace they came back into the game. They never drop their heads and I, think for the second half of that first half they look the better team. Yes. But this Everton, you watch them and you expect them to find a winner is, is mind bending the different for me and they did find a way to thanks for the only three football sexier than D. C. L. The call is a caller gave now. Tottenham in the champions the final terrible but. God luxury hotels and he called it right. You said it's a nonsense ruining the game of football similar fantasy to him to what you said the week before when. Palace were the beneficiaries of a similar decision against generated. We both agree on that Dave I mean. The thing I hated about it was even as I loved it not. They'd love it need. You weren't screaming. This is a nonsense throwing football as Everton got the penalty. Give it, and at the same time I realized it was utterly unjust. It was uttley against the spirit of the game and to this day. But I've seen that given against him for years I know how painful it is as a as a founder felt for palace found and Conditioned to new a life truth. Any good fortune food when it comes to US normally gets repaid of most often in the same game but if not. The upcoming week for shore up and palace have a right to be angry Everton were classier but bloody al they work so hard for Roy and each other that team they are, does the some wonderful at the hard you'll you'll. Look they worked so hard to team. You can really like to manager who you can really liked. Everton you're right. They did look classier. They're enjoying playing with each other right now and. Made that last Roger. May that last Yam mean. bouffant remained perfect. The march to one hundred and fourteen point title winning season still on Seattle sixty three go golden boo still own. This is not my as talking. It's science it stats English Bob One with the big question for you, David Is it possible to go top of the League to early. We're all counting on. You show we need everyone. WHO Doesn't want Liverpool to win the title which just counting on Everton Everton are the only four. This is really like Star Wars. It's basic you all the baby walks the only thing that can help us right now the only thing that can save us from Yoga and yes. We're going to shout the baggage. Brian this we cannot say though. After so many seasons of Everton. Games. In which I normally final whistle just feel so sad than just sit there crumpled. Playing Tracy Chapman's fast call as a reminder that however better fail life could be worse. But when we win they've and when we win like this a ten, no walk to do I don't know how to be I did actually I should say play Tracy. Chapman's talking about revolution is we? Deliver X that talking about a revolution sounds like a whisper poor people going to rise up and get their share poor people gonNA rise up have US football club and take what's theirs. But last week Newsweek had a beautiful article. Google rabbits can smell their dead relatives in the feces of predators. And I realized in the same way Everton fans can smell past defeats even in moments of happiness and the last time Everton when their first games of the season Dave Ninety three, ninety, four. They ended up escaping relegation by two points on the of the ring. Relatives that's your dead relatives I. Don't know this seems like a different Everton Raj and We're GONNA try and come up with a balanced view of Everton this seems like a different squad. The manager seems to have a real understanding of how he wants them playing football. He seems to vote the personnel these personnel seem to. Like another to inflict trophy, they seem to be working very well with the players he's already got and that seems to be a collective. Good energy around the team. Do I think that Everton going to finish the season with one hundred and fourteen points? No. Do I think that they are going to be a top four side could be they could be do I think it's more likely that they do better than last season's like definitive mid-table where they finished tenth eleventh something like that. Yes I think this should be a top seven side I, think you and every other fans be very disappointed. If this team doesn't get that, don't take away my mid table obscurity and nothingness. Dave. Oh is that what you're toast is about. Our want to raise a shove. That human exclamation point and the Glass Tissier Genius Desk of. The nineteen year old Dutch American who's been chased by by Munich but he's just arrived in. Barcelona to join them. It's incredible to think he's going to team of comrade, Lafuente nineteen years of age, and we the US will have to international prospects in the boss, the squad and it keeps getting better for America to great coaching stories this weekend, Salzburg then manager, Jesse Marsch while human being a perfect knowing points from three games.

Caught Offside: Champions League 1st legs

"Caught Offside with Andrew gumming and JJ Davani yes. Caught offside be upper west side Manhattan Adra Gulling. Jj Danny what's up? Brought a little cry on the subway this morning. Tears running down my face listening to a podcast really. We'll get to that later. Wasn't our podcast by the way. Are you exaggerating or actually crying welled up and Could feel little tear running down my cheek but we will explain that later. This is called a tease in the business. Andrew I'm setting up the rest of what will not a brilliant podcast or you are really a sensitive soul. Oem there's death to you. That I've never even. I haven't even touched yet. I don't want you touching. My depth is the fairest thing. I can say should be a fun. Podcast Champions League action to discuss as we are into the knockout stages. This is the business end of the competition. I believe is what true professionals say. I don't really know what it means. But I like fashion myself as a true professional Yeah there should be a good time. We've got a big Red card man of the match what to watch for Kake. Caf Champions League also back which means the songs back. I The song so I saw some people tweeting the long the thing that I'm curious about with the song Are there like actual lyrics? You remember from year to year or is it just on the fly John With Lyrics. That always come back to me are these. Aren't the best team right? Not like your Baseline Wade. Who are the teams? You've never heard of them but the peons some of them. Not all of them. It's moving I hear that song and it it does move me Boy I got a haircut today and it just Normally they ask me If I want Gel in my hair and I usually say no. It's just not just not me. I have no problem with other people who put down their hair. But it's just not me today. He just went for it. And I haven't felt like myself the entire day it will undoubtedly affect me on this podcast. I think you're haircuts magnificent. Tweeting out a picture of it. Right now Little tighter on the sides than usual rush back with a bit of that. You look good. You look very good and I think you should just accept it and also you should tell your hair more regularly. It's I don't know I don't know how to do it. I don't know the right amount to us. It's it's just not me. Let's talk about the soccer. Jj the soccer persists the Champions League returns the round of sixteen first legs Of the first half of the round of sixteen Let's see do you have any particular met you want to get to I I I know? I have them in an order here in which they occurred. But I don't really care there's something most pressing to you than we can just go straight to that Can we begin with Tottenham and Leipzig gladly because we can put Liverpool back? I don't need to start with okay. So we will start. Tottenham losing to Leipzig At home one nil is your final. I do have a lot of thoughts on this game. and obviously Josie Merino wool factor into this conversation. Because he's Oh I'm thinking right to the end I'll tell you what man I on the mornings of these podcasts. Where I know Tottenham and specifically him are going to be a conversation piece. I I actually wake up nervous. A my that domineering person. It's it's you it's definitely you It's just him. It's also just what it does to me inside like I do. It just has brought me to kind of place. Now where I don't I don't really enjoy talking about Tottenham on this podcast because of how divisive he is. Here's the root of what I'm saying. So ultimately all of the criticisms that are being levied against Josie Marino for what happened yesterday I think are valid Tottenham like it was that negative style It's not it wasn't enjoyable to watch by the time they kind of decided. Okay let's kick on and do something about this. It was just. It was just going to be hard for them to score because it doesn't. It started the work that way. You can't just say okay. We're GONNA score now help goal like it's just it's what is now becoming the Tottenham trademark final twenty minutes. Yeah So like I'm not GonNa sit here and criticize the the Josie haters today. Who are feeling that way and Lord knows I've seen on twitter and I've gone to every website. There's they're out there. I saw Nick Miller's like hit piece on Marino on ESPN DOT com today So you know like I get it and I wasn't happy watching that game either Now the reason what I'm doing is kind of unfair and doesn't need to be an argument. It's just honestly just kinda telling you how I feel about all this. It's not a footnote in this that Cain and son are out injured and then we WanNa make fun of and we'll hear from Joseph Marino. We WanNa make fun of his comments after the game that those players are hurt and his other attack minded player that he wants to bring on in Eric. Lamelo hasn't trained all week and being thrown from no training into the fire of a Champions League round of six game against the number two team in the Bundesliga. Like I'm sorry. Both of the things are true Marino. It was it was disappointing. And the fact that like wanting to play defensive-minded style but not having your most attack minded players so you can at least have something at the other end. It matters at like I'm reading. Nick Miller and I don't mean to point out specifically but he treats those injuries like it's a footnote. It's just it's more important than that. It just is right. Okay well let me start off with the positives I think. That's a brilliant result for spurs because had schick gone the left of Laurie. Slow and hired. That's tuna had angelenos squeeze one in. That's three no. I really think that even in the losing effort Hugo race was my man of the music I think had team. Oh verner being a little bit sharper in terms of his goalscoring. Certainly he was sharp. Get down that left. Hand side with Angelina I think this game would have been completely out of out of Tottenham Control at one nil. It is still very much in their gift. We Know Cup. Football is like the Spurs can certainly go to Leipzig and get an away goal and suddenly suddenly it's all looking rosy are everything's possible So those are the positives. I should also mention that lucile was a positive for me in this game. I think early on. He not megs de Leipzig defender and puts it gets in Fernandez's in he should have scored. Then how are we looking at this game? Probably Spurs have to sit in for seventy seventy five minutes but whatever so you know in terms of result. I think this could have been much much much. Worse disperse now you said. It's not a footnote that Cain is missing and son and son is missing and I certainly don't think so if you watch spurs at the weekend against Aston Villa it's impossible. It's impossible to imagine them pulling off what they did without Human San and that's against relegation candidate not the second best team in the Bundesliga however Andrew. It's not a footnote. But this was a completely rejigged. Defensive Unit for RB Leipzig. It's not a footnote that they started at the heart of their defence. A player who may be a defender anything to do and be a player. Who's on loan from Chelsea at Nineteen years of age? That was his second start. I mean he was thrown in into this scenario on apart from a few shaky moments but other than that. I'm picking up in the second half and it's it's maybe ten minutes into the second-half on I'm watching. I'm purdue receivable unchallenged in central midfield spot and paying thirty five yard pass out to the wing own challenged now. These are important things to at. No point did Spurs get on the Front Foot and make this kid uncomfortable like it. It's absolutely baffling to me. Not Baffling it's an infuriating to me to watch the Marino press conferences where he gives the litany of players that are injured. The players who were tired. We didn't just have injuries we had. The mailer had not trained. He can't he comes on Okay fine he didn't train but then Burgoyne was tired. Loselle so tired. Everyone's tired okay. But I refuse to believe that the only way spurs could have played last night even with the positive central forward options. He started with Deliang a World Cup veteran for an an an a player of some repute. Who started on fire for this manager? He started with him up front alongside. Who said he had a front Lucas? More Lucas Mora. Who has been a match-winner in this competition for Spurs no? They're not out and out center forwards. And what you can't do is lump the ball at them so is Marino saying I need that forward. That's going to hold the ball up with his back to goal. Because I'M GONNA play that way. That's that doesn't inspire confidence. And they were second every ball. Life's dominated possession to was zest in a verve to their team. And I can't put it all down to the injuries and to the excuses of Josie marine or a couple of things first of all. I don't know that I would go. I would say that Leipzig dominated in terms of the flow of the game. But if you want to say dominated possession. It was fifty six forty four at home. Would you likes felt like more time but but that is literally what it was. You know shots were even on shots on target. Were five five but the gronk about quality of the shot for Leipzig was clearly of a different caliber than what The quality of the shop was for for Tottenham. There's no question about that. I'm sure Leipzig's expected goal would have dwarfed that of Tottenham in this game. I don't think it did actually Bush really. I'm not sure what it was. Maybe maybe it was dramatic. Maybe I'm I've looked at so much. Expect to goals in the last while. Let me let me check that up. You keep you keep. So here's the other thing for me is not being talked about quite as much. Because you're right Josie. He goes through his litany of of. Who's hurt and who's tired and I think the WHO's tired is a message. He was not happy with the scheduling. He was very angry. Tottenham had to play Aston Villa on Sunday as opposed to Saturday knowing they had a midweek champions. Okay so I think some of that was yes. These guys are tired but I also WANNA make my point right now that this was wrong that we were putting his Tottenham are playing the seven. Am or the twelve. The twelve thirty game England against Chelsea this weekend on Saturday so they've been put scheduling wise. Nobody's doing them any favors and he's he's trying to get that point out there he wants it known The other thing though a player whose name. We're not even mentioning who I mentioned now every week because he's become my favorite player on the team without ever even really playing Jj the more. I watch him ten dom as the most important player in the team and Marino mentioned him as well as another guy who is not training. He's not fully fit but therefore they're in a position where they're forced to use them. He did not start this game and I. I really think he is a difference maker for them. He comes on in the last twenty minutes. He had four Four completed dribbles in this game. It was tied for the most anybody in the entire game on both teams. He only played twenty minutes. He is the key for them. Like you talk about one of the pressure guys in the midfield and push play and like link-up defense to attack. Yeah it's him and I think Marino. I think that's why Josie Marina was so frustrated with him. Because Josie knows this. Is I have the key to unlock some of the things that people are on me for not doing what they want me to do. And like this guy's just not fit enough for me to be using him So he's forcing them in. I don't know if he was even fit enough to give him the twenty minutes but he came on he played well. I maybe I'm naive. Maybe I'm lying to myself. But I'd like to believe that if he can be fully fit and just play every week like when he sat against Aston Villa. I was like all right cool because that means he's now go ninety mid week against life sick but he's clearly does not fit so for me. He's it I I really think without Kane and son obviously who are probably the two best players I really think? Domino is the most important player on the team And and I think that it affects them and you see like you talk about their different team in the last twenty minutes. This is usually what his role has been because he hasn't been fit enough to play ninety so he comes in and those last twenty minutes any changes the game so I'd like to see him fit before again. I've talked all along about Josie Marino. I'm not thrilled with them but I'm not ready to judge him yet because I think it's still kind of too early to to do some of that. And he's not playing with a full deck. You can mock that all you want but it is true. You know guys like Don Blair. Why I feel that way I'd like to see in Canaan son all play together. How many times does it happened? It's hardly happened at all you know. So Michael Kelly's ex g by the way is It's a rough X. Gen hit it seems to me to be autumn. Hotspur point nine or be like sick. One point zero so I don't I okay. By the chances that Leipzig had just in the first three minutes alone would've thought would've to your point I think In the in the Postman I saw I listen to all twenty minutes of his post-match press conference with the media and you know he shut down a lot of people he keeps talking about how it can't be any different for the second leg. Komen guys you know as if look what I'm dealing with their then he starts listing off. How would Barcelona of being if you'd lost two of Neymar of messy? Sorry of messy grease men are Suarez. How would they be and then and then he said it's you know look Liverpool? How would Liverpool be without mine For Menial Silo and I thank you all right. Okay but you know you're not asking for an extended period to be without this these players. You're talking boat one night and look at Liverpool. Did the Barcelona in the second leg and feel that night. You know they play with diva Kariya Chakari UNSAID SAUDI-OMANI AFFRONT. You know it it's let me distill it down to what exactly it is for me. It's the idea that he can't be any other way. It's the idea that we couldn't possibly do it any other way. It's the idea that there was no ideas to be hot. Other than what I came up with and base is somehow a triumph. I get it. I'll defend him one last time on on on that You're right like there's a large sample set where this is what he wants to do. But I feel like the two games this season where he's come under the greatest degree of criticism really by far was after the Liverpool loss. And then this one after dyslexic loss and like losing one nil to Liverpool. It was just not a game and playing a defensive minded style and then trying to beat them on the counter. Like it was for me. It was never going to be a thing that I was going to kill him for. And then like this one. Now it's disappointing at home to play like that in the Champions League but. I think that we're doing a great disservice. To the quality of Leipzig. In saying the Tottenham should've just boss the game and low. No but I know you're not saying I'm just saying generally speaking like you know expect Marino. Just play a suddenly different style attack minded and like not take into account. I could really get you doing correct and like again. I just feel like like you can say not. Having Canaan Son is mitigated by the fact. That Lucas Moore has one champions. League games for them and Delhi Alley. Play has started out playing well against Joe's Marino but I'm sorry that's disingenuous to me to the quality of Cain and son Lucas Mora while he did play great against I xe. He's horribly inconsistent. He has moments where he's the guy who gets the ball and drives play forward and then I'll go forty five minutes. You won't hear his name. Can I ask you something not to take you off topic? But Delhi Alley. He was angry with himself or Marino. I don't think that's clear I Marino said Reno praised them afterwards and said that he was not angry with Marino. He was angry at himself You Know Deli Alley has been playing a ton since CAIN has gone out now with Sun out and he's playing out of position. He's being asked to do things that maybe he's not super comfortable with so. I get the sense that that was just I don't know I assume it was frustration. Probably with everybody probably with himself probably from Iranian. Not giving them more of a chance. He's probably fatigued you know. Ever since he made that stupid video while Tottenham Moron break. I'm sure he's been getting it from people on social media and just mad at him so that's the way the world is falling in a little bit maybe might have just been like a general lashing out Before before before we get off this I just wanted to remember. I said that NATO Zeman versus Marino was going to be like this myrrh from the past forward and how the reflections Marino may not shine very brightly. And I think there's a bit of that that the thirty two year old guy with all the the tactical ability to switch things round seen as like this most progressive voice in European football right now coveted manager. And then you've got Marino. Who has the most unbelievable resume resume sense? I mean we're talking. We're put him in the realm of Alex Ferguson and people like and maybe he's on the downward his his methods are quite the same anymore. I think that's I mean Nagel Julian Nagles Minh is German for. Sean McVeigh Right Right Right. That's very we're saying all the same things about NATO's men that we do for from Avai all right So Yeah Tottenham still in it. Thanks to Hugo Larrea's who stood on his head to make some saves in this game two to keep it one nil and who I mean I still viewed that as a toss up I saw the like the five thirty eight It was Eighty four percent for Leipzig to win. I that's a statement. What how I mean. That's basically a sure thing on one nil all right. I mean we have to see how we have to see how they'll do the Iowa caucus before we can we can go for large percentages dot com. Can I drive here a little worse? Of course can can we do brush Orion psg next of course What a game. Two one Borussia Dortmund one atmosphere. What performance from the kid from the kids really yeah Erling Holland again. Two goals after coming on as a sub but it was the way of Georamas pass for that. Second one wasn't it? I mean it was pretty good. He you are right in that. Like he's got to catch him in straight. So weight of the past was such that it allowed Holland a chance to just play the ball right where he needed to be to do what he did it. So and it was all done at executed at a tremendous pace and I give rain a credit on one thing in particular so the goal that had just been scored by PSG. It was not rain as finest moment account. It seemed like they kind of went at him and he sure yeah and then Dorman come back and scored that goal basically off the restart right. I mean it was instantaneous. Like ps fans were still celebrating the goal and so like a seventeen year old kid playing in his first. Champions League game against Fricken Neymar and Imbaba and like legendary Champions League figures. And he's now at fault for what could be a massive goal in this tie and then like this memory that just instantly forgets about it and comes right back and sets up a goal to give them the the win. You know what it's admirable for seven. I think at seventeen. It's very admirable but I also think that he's more likely to get upset and and to have his mistakes sit with him a twenty-seven than he is at seventeen. I think everything's happened so quickly from him. Moving from New York and the last the last fifteen months has been a whirlwind dot. I honestly think he's processing now at a at a different level. The next ball is what he's thinking about. I have a trivia question for you to review and the I will give you a hint already before even ask it. The the answer is not the obvious. Answer okay Youngest American ever plan to Champions League is now gio raina at seventeen years and ninety seven days congrats to him. Do you know who the previous record holder was for this title. Youngest American do perform a championship game. Snot WAILUA No. The obvious one was pure sick. He's actually he's actually third. Oh there's so we're talking about. Maybe someone in the nineties no later. Oh Land Donovan no when was he at Leverkusen. I don't know but it's it's not him? Okay go on Jayjay. It's Gideon's alarm for Arsenal. I couldn't believe that when I saw it I was trying to. I was racking my brain trying to remember. When did he do that? He was Seventeen years through a three hundred seventeen days. Imagine what we thought of. Gideon's allow him that day. Look at mar seventeen year old American an arsenal. Remember when he had The good game that he had for Rangers how we waxed lyrical abode on so we're We've been on that train for awhile now at New York City Helen I mean let's talk about him. This is this is now gotten into stupid. Your Tori ridiculous. Like so much fun to watch. Because now you're going into every game Almost like would this this like laughable feeling of Oh here he comes to score again. Oh he did he actually just did it like there's a there's a giddiness you get the minute he gets it. You're like where's he going to put it on? You expect a net Toronto and for a nineteen year old. This is just absolutely absurd. Can we go back and listen to the winning goal that he scored lease serious testing fixture still celebrating equalizing goal behind again yet again? All the the sound of the ball hitting the rigging I'm so much said stanchion. I'm going to pull them up on that I I call it. The rigging 'cause the old school you know the old school hoops stanchion that annoys when when the net would hit when the ball would hit that. This is This is something beautiful. What's that thing we talk about where it's the Mr which gives you kind of elicits feelings? Should I do it right now? Sometime when when people whisper quietly. I'm sure everyone is now recoiling. Heart someone's just vomited all over the steering wheel in there Carolyn into that. But but the point is that it You could isolate. And we have isolated that that noise somewhat and It's beautiful just at the end that the CH- it's got to be like the swoosh when when a when a basketball is hit for three pointer and it doesn't touch the rim and it just goes. It's yeah sometimes you even get where Kinda like Nick's like the back Rim. And it makes this weird tinny sound it's yeah it's beautiful it's very. Sm are indeed Yeah this this is so much fun Not even as somebody who is necessarily a fan of Bruce Dorm now dislike them? But like this is a this is really kind of watching history rain right like this is an incredible thing. That's happening the interesting thing about about Holland. I remember his father playing. And what did we say about your decrease? Well he's not as good as Johann. You're always what's Casper? He's good but he's not as good as Peter I. I do not remember airlinks. Father Alfie. Doing any of those things. And he played at the highest level he put for much juster city Leeds United in the Premier League. But this kid is the pace the speed the torch. He's closer to what I remember of young Rinaldo. The first then he is anybody else remember. I San Maybe. Maybe it's a bit like Van Nistelrooy he's quicker than he's quicker than a him there's the stat going around about. How quickly he ran sixty meters. And there's this hilarious video of him running against these same bolt and like poon but apparently if at the speed that he reached Running sixty meters in this game like he would have placed in the final of the indoor track and field world championships. Like yeah I mean it's I don't know who I right now. You say Rinaldo the the I I I don't know but even longer here's the thing about Renaldo. The first he had a bit of a longer run it like he's royalty We forget that Renaldo. The first we've got that Ronaldo Was At the ninety four World Cup in the squad Brazil and so he kind of long run in he was good at PSV for a bit and then he exploded kind of towards the end of his time there and then embarrassed Lona was. This kid has literally common the scene. Saas Burke just torched the Austrian league and the next thing he makes his transfer and there's no settling in period. The torching continues. The it's like he's being Dortmund as long as like for three or four years. Yeah Yeah it's funny one one quote I saw from Lars Ricken That was going around him. Saying at at Dortmund we don't by superstars we make them But Taylor woman was on it. He's like dude. You just bought Holland. Yeah a week ago. Twenty nine and rain as well. Random was taken from New York. You know not last should know. Lars was a student when he scored in the Final he was an engineering student. Lars and with his first touchy whips over You'll forgive me. I can't forget the Peruzzi the Juventus goalkeeper in a final He actually can claim to be born and created by Russia. Dortmund Allen can't no end is a free market capitalist? You're right but I do understand. His point in that here are Borussia Dortmund in a huge moment of the Champions League against a team that on paper you might say is better pound for pound than what Dortmund is and yet it's a seventeen year old American passing the ball to a nineteen year old Norwegian to get them the winning goal in the first leg. I that that is the sign to me. I I get the coaching staff credit for being willing to like have those guys on the field and a big moment like that. That is true. Sign of why we love sports. Which is that. It's a meritocracy so if a seventeen year old and a nineteen year old are the guys who are performing for you in training like be damned. Who Else you have on your roster. We're going to play those two guys and they're being rewarded for. They've also got Jaden Sancho on the roster who has no doing something that I don't know how to categorize him as a player because he has an unbelievable amount of goals plus an unbelievable amount of assists like Jaden Sancho is not going to leave that coat for less than a hundred million and absolutely one hundred million seems like of Steel Steve in a way. you asked to bring a question so here we're Yeah. Holland is taking the world by storm and I'm just asking you essentially. Can you think of other examples of someone from any sport? Who kind of burst on the scene in this way. So I've got three all right. None of them are perfect. But here we go. We start with with soccer itself on. Its from what I remember At seventeen about star eating in his first full season at Liverpool Mike Alone scored twenty three goals in all competitions than went to a World Cup dot summer in France scoring a wonder goal versus Argentina and around sixteen as a great poll by Lebron James Rookie Season. Forty one points against the nats became the youngest player in league. History to score. Forty in a game joined Michael Jordan. As one of only three rookies in League history to average twenty points five assists and five rebounds per game all right now and the final one and again these are all just once that sprang into my mind. I'm sure the listeners have other ones out there rugby Jonah Lomu. He became the youngest New Zealand. All black debutante aged nineteen in one thousand nine hundred four the following year. He scored four tries. Which is phenomenal on ran all over. England. And if you watch the highlights literally run over people in a rugby World Cup Semifinal. I think all those are pretty good examples of what we're talking about so the only thing for me that I would say is I feel like this guy now. Look I can't speak to the rugby player that you just mentioned there. I'd bet props to you. That's beyond my purview But the thing with Holland that's different is like. Just how much was he on? Everyone's radar nine months ago like he's playing in Austria okay. He had a soccer player father but like not was he being talked about like in the summer. Transfer window among anybody as like a big money Biden Salzburg. They weren't right so like Lebron. The world was ready right. You know Like this is just so interesting to me because I just feel like this happened. We woke up one morning and all the sudden. There's like a new Levin doffs coffee and it's just incredible I I sometimes think about Dontrelle Willis who pitcher for the Florida Marlins and in two thousand three he just like appeared in the Big Leagues and he was unbelievable and he had dislike kind of like wild style on the mound and like he was he was amazing now he flamed out. It didn't last long as it. Sometimes is the case for pitchers but I feel like I don't know I feel like every time he pitched it was kind of like. Oh Willis is pitching tonight. Must View Television. That's like Holland comes. In as a sub in the seventy th minute you stop what you're doing and now you gotTa Watch what I think the what he's crammed into such as as you said into such a few months a few short months. Just what probably catapults of the three guys? I've mentioned like even Michael Owens Kgo. I think that's not a bad call. Yeah he I mean it was pretty much debut-season nutty at all Although he had played a game he played maybe two games at the end of the of the of the Ninety six ninety seven season but still I guess people were talking about a one because he was at the center of excellence at Lilleshall He had broken all sorts of records in terms of youth goalscoring but the trajectory between his debut game for Liverpool and then being World Cup in such a short period of time like literally months inside a calendar year was unbelievable. And I think that's probably the same that's the most that's the most comparable to Holland. What about like college version Steph Curry Professional Nba Dad who was fine similar to Holland and like playing at a school Davidson? Maybe like mid major comparable to Salzburg and just like you turn on the TV when Dana tournaments like Who is this person hitting threes from everywhere on the court and now he's a legit superstar one of the best ever. I feel like maybe that one works And then there's the other side of this which we have to talk about. Ps G well. I suppose they have their a wiggled which is important but they won't have variety who suspended right They've also name are now seeing something like this I understand the fear that the club was suffering from because in the last two years I was not able to play in the round of sixteen. I respect the decision but it kind of be like this because the player ends up suffering. It was very difficult to play a match like this intense ninety minutes without stopping. It is different. Had I been better shape I would have certainly have played better. So he's basically saying he was fit to play from four games ago right and that he wanted those games in the road into this game. Bats explaining why he wasn't quite added D- Did he need to say this. Not sure that he did. I suppose he needs to defend his performance somewhat Bush therein. I won't say they're in trouble because they create chances they they did score that away. Goal variety is a huge mace. He makes everything taken the midfield for them. This is this is GONNA be can't go out again in this round that this cannot happen you in your but do they. Can you see them? Not Conceding empowers no but I could see them scoring three. Could you is not crazy. Thought for me yeah. I may know they win three one. I don't know that that would shy. I know it's it's you know you could use the term finely poised and that you know Borussia the slight advantage but I I really can't call it. I can't maybe maybe variety will be the different. Not having him in the center. It's three three straight years. They've gone out in the round of sixteen I mean this the. I'm sorry like this is not. This is not why they have all this money into this experiment like round. You gotta get to the Semis. At least maybe and even then with all the money that they've put into this. I don't think people would let them up. I think this is a title or bus team. And the fact that they can't get past this round And Look Bruce. Dortmund are good but that is not like Bruce. Dorton is not the level of competition that PSG were worried about when they compiled the squad. And you know it's funny too. Because I am by no means my saying that this is over. I still know to me. It's fifty fifty maybe even I tilted slightly towards PS g But like to me it. It kind of felt like they had come to their senses a little bit when they go out and make assigning like a gay okay. That's not like a flash move but it's the exact kind of move that you would make when you're serious about you know we're not just trying to put butts in seats trying to win. You're building a site right. And so like they start doing stuff like that and it feels like they're they're trying to now do it the right way And yet here. They are on these nights and any given night anything can happen especially against a good team and now they're up against it again. It's worth noting is wild today. The breaking news Rob Hires tweeted. This owed From Switzerland's Attorney General Nassir Al-Khalifi Chairman of B. N. and Paris your man president indicted over the award of FIFA World Cup rights. Xp for Secretary General Jerome Volcanoes also indicted so. This has been A. I said last Friday that I thought people would be nervous in the wake of what happened to Man City. I don't know if this is the exact form that I thought it was going to know. This is this is something different but Yeah so they're they are under the microscope yet again. On and off the field Let's see a letter. Madrid and Liverpool. It's one nil. As Liverpool return to the sight of their triumph from back. Last was it last. May May But this time it goes to their opponent. Madrid take the first leg one nil I Dunno Liverpool. I feel like sometimes when you win a lot Like they have they're not used to the feeling of being on the other side. And sometimes you see that in post match comments of guys like I feel like here's the quote from your Klopp After the game because he took Saudi-omani off at half-time which At this stage in the Champions League I'll be honest like you assume a Omani must be hurt and then you find out. No He's not and then clock explains why he was afraid that Athletico Madrid. We're GONNA do everything in their power to get him sent off or get him Carded KLOPP said. It's part of football. I don't like the plan was to get Saudi. Oh out of the game with a yellow card. I was afraid of his opponent would go down if Saudi Saudi only took a breath after thirty minutes. Three athletic players were on the ground not even injured And then this was players kind of taking their cue from KLOPP. It was echoed in the dressing room. Andy Robertson Having said that the home side quote started falling all over and getting under the skin. A bit after souls Fourth Minute Goal. Virgil Van Dyke said. That is the way they play. That is Spanish football Liverpool. Not Happy with some of the antics of Athletico Madrid. I would say to them. I understand that I'm sure it's outrageously frustrating to play against that style I would also say what did you expect. Yeah first of all before. I deal with the complaints which I think. English teams traditionally traveling abroad to play teams dot operate in in that way in a cauldron atmosphere like it was at the Wanda With with the team that scored early and was ready to kind of be compact and defensive. These complaints I've heard them before dawn. The year saw I thought it was actually a classic away. Italian a European game a big site the CIA reigning champions come into town. And here's a manager setting a trap for them. Ready with a plan and away of plan I thought he was brilliantly organized defensively thought savage had an unbelievable game law Dato Under Sokha was well at. They were extremely compact day suffocated Liverpool down the center. Like how many times did you hear Roberto for me? Knows name where he was getting on the ball or trying to create anything date they completely compacted the inside. They let for the most part. They let Trent Alexander Arnold Robertson. Have the ball to a certain point on when they tried to put into liveries there was people perfectly placed to clear them Liverpool didn't get manager shot on target in the entire game. Although I will say that we're probably looking at this point and different light had Mohammed Saleh scored his head or brilliant ball by Gomez. He's got to score there if he heads back in the direction in which the balls come from. That's nestling in the bottom corner past old black I I honestly think that the early goal really was perfect. For letting the saints that right. We've got this this thing to defend a. Nobody knows how to do it better than US. And they were just set up brilliantly. Dick play quite well on the counter was good save I mean it was. It was a Liverpool era was an uncharacteristic error from V. put a murata in and it was a good save from Alison but this is a tie that perfectly balanced perfectly fine tuned Some Liverpool fans are upset. Both the referee did I think he was grit. No did I expect anything different from ATHLETI. I honestly didn't And it's perfectly settled for one of those nights at Anfield that we talk about and typically the second legs at Anfield and even Klopp said it with a smile on his face they have to come to Anfield. Yeah he seemed also a little bit put off by how much they were celebrating after. This game. Athletic Well David An open down season and the season in which there's been a lot of talk even in recent weeks of the end of era for semion. Willie move on. Is it time to move on are the is much? Pocchettino at the end of last season will not much. Like what similar scenario is it time for new voice and it was a it was something that recalled a better time for. Athleti and they look. Did you see him the way he was starting up the crowd like it was his energy his his craziness on the sideline transferred to his players on the field and subsequently to the fans in the stand. It was yeah. I don't know what else to say about this one. I don't know why people were so exercised by it really does feel like in the classic sense of halftime any European tight. This is how I remember most European Toscano. Yeah I sort of wonder now if Liverpool are like this is part of their adjustment into being the top dog of Europe being the target. Yeah like this is how this is how things are going to play you. You're not losing games ever so if Athletico anybody can get an early goal like this like yeah get ready for a game that we're just going to try to frustrate the hell. Letty attempted to play on their own terms. They would have been beaten soundly. They didn't they played at the way they would. Why why would they? Oh I during the reigning European champions there. Let's play. Let's play different by the way the lady before it again. They put on their own light. Show so going to be interesting to see Liverpool fans responding. Kind you me. When the bus pulled all crazy? Absolutely crazy So do you think it seems like you are actually? I don't think confident. I don't think we'll nil is enough. I think they're going to have to go stanfield and score. Can they do that on the break? Are they capable? I would say they are but I think if we go through I think Liverpool win. Two Nil Anfield one more here feel bad kind of giving short shrift. Atalanta and Valencia at the San Sierra. It was such a fun game I felt like so I had the This was the yeah. This is on simultaneously with the Tottenham which way that they've done it this way but I just felt like I had on two screens next door and other obviously my primary viewing was Tottenham. But I just felt like every time I looked over. Atalanta were scoring and remember where this team came from in that like they were dead and buried after the first three four matches of the group stage After losing their opening three game. It's incredible now. I would say this to Atalanta fans Who are like already to book their tickets for the quarterfinals Weirdly only three of the previous five teams that won the first leg of a Champions League. Knockout round about a score of four. One at home went on to advance. That is bizarre. And if you look at how many chances Valencia had it could have been at full time for three day. Now you're looking at a dentist. Cheryshev should have scored Valencia where he got her in the second half. Yeah and they create a lot of champion chances. Gasparrini style is that Atlanta are actually Bergamo's very Italian place. It's in Italy. Jj that's pretty obvious but it seems like a really Italian place a traditionally Italian place but this team do not defend like a traditional Italian team like when when illitch scores the second goal That where he just blasted into the top corner right. An Italian team would sit back. Sit deep and just defend but they keep going and going and going. They play between the lines. They find passes in between the lines and that leaves them. Open and Valencia. Had A lot of chances. There's no question so it's crazy to say it but a four one that time is not all over recent history has told us it's not. I mean it could be. That could be. That could be one of the best games Are I say one of the best? It could produce the most amount of goals of the second legs at the Messiah. Will you just know? Those Games are so fun because like it's just going to be so open and it's kind of playing with house money for Atalanta Right now. I'm not anymore not anymore. Your four we're going in the second year year. Right that's fair they wanna be in a quarter-final what have run thereon and again this was tweeted regularly but a it's worth noting that they have the budget of reading. Oh my God were fifteenth in the Championship. Which makes you worry about championship. Wages and salaries. Yeah I'll tell you what it's basically. That's basically the budget of this show because of things like this. Jj I wanna tell you right now. That hiring is challenging. But there's one place that you can go. We're hiring simple fast.

I wish I had the tweet in front of me right now because we definitely need more ziprecruiter based content. You don't understand how this works. Let's after the break after the break. It's one of our favorite time of year when. Jj GETS TO SING ABOUT THE OTHER. Champions League the Concha CAF champions league. If you're excited about that then don't go anywhere because it's coming up next boy. Let's Big Pizza Neil presence but that was Sowell's goal the winning goal from the first leg for Athletico Madrid against Liverpool that soon of better better call Saul theme song. Which season four to Netflix right now? Nice season five. I think should be coming out soon on. Amc It felt like the right kind of goal not to say that Madrid with talent on that team are capable of scoring great beautiful goals but like his for being in just like a gritty defensive-minded game. It's just like this kind of like off a corner kind of like scramble in front. Sowell I two it props to him and and just gets past. The keeper just felt like the right kind of goal in like that kind of he's the. Kinda guy that scores for them. How many times does he come up your great player Alright Jayjay it's your time to shine or any of the music teams well. Nah where who? These teams from Honduras Nicaragua. The man gain public talk. I'll tell you what it's of all the things that happened on this show. It shouldn't be good and it shouldn't enjoy it and it's by far the most arrogant both zapped me. Then how you should mention like. Why doesn't why don't you mentioned? Mls from from the United States. Because I say because I go the champions and go but not really because Llc didn't win last season then either. Did you know it's it's so conduct? Montreal are in the Champions League champions at Tottenham the Champions League what are they champions of all here's how they never win trophies All right KOPF Champions League here first legs round of sixteen I don't have a ton to say about this except that I think it's like obviously coming at this from the MLS perspective And it was a largely disappointing against that. A first leg we're used to it Yes and I and that's kind of what I wanted to ask you about. Because specifically after The first night where lending. Fc drew their game against F C Motagua and L. AFC lost to lay on and even though Atlanta United drew Both games were were felt like well more so l. Afc like it was one sided and we look at L. AFC even though they weren't the champions of MLS. I think a lot of people do look at them as being the best team in this league And for them to go into that game and look the way that they did you know it. It raises eyebrows And so people start throwing their theories out there and I'm just trying to. I WanNa give your opinion as to whether or not this is warning or if there's validity to the idea of what people are saying that these games are high intensity Whatever you think of this tournament it's tournament where these teams participating want to win badly and it's essentially occurring in. Mls is preseason is that fair to MLS team. Will John Hamill in Nashville actually he was part of the mailbag. But that's gone now. Thanks Andrew for asking the pertinent questions. Look it definitely has something to do with it. From the certainly from the second half I mean they weren't good in the first half what L. Afc even looked more tired in the second half. They're passing which we would say they would be considered one of the better. Mls passing teams. It wasn't there at all They couldn't keep the ball on every time. Dada Manassas got on the left hand side for the only looked at score. The defense is well Andrew. So that's a a defense. That's been shorn of one of its mainstays Walker Zimmerman and they were adrift for the goal There looked to be significant rust. But I would say that in certainly in the case of Leone versus L. AFC it was evidence. That league Mackie's is still a wrong or two above. Mls let's wait for the second leg. Okay I look even if he comes back and wins you can still say what you just said and not necessarily be wrong but I think it's totally fair like L. AFC. They get a home game here. Like let's wait and see my own patterns of play together in a way that L. AFC couldn't at second goal was a gut punch. Yeah definitely felt like they were going to see it out down. Just a goal heading back home. I think I think also can talk about Atlanta against the Honduran side Menteur Julia Atlanta's poor showing is less. Okay it's excusable on one hand. They had to play. They have to switch round defenders. There was full box. Who are naturally fullbacks? Plan at centerback. Because they had some injuries. But if you look up the team you had Laurenti twits Amerson Heineman. And then you had like a really important frontline and the fact that they only scored one goal is is not good Can I say something real quick of a little bit about that? I was going to save. This more. Do are real. And the less preview coming up. Okay but if we're talking about Atlanta and we're talking about that part of them I I think they are like underrated. -Ly Gone Amiss. Julian gristle. I totally agree. I in terms of playmaking in terms of the goals and he brings the team. I could not agree more and I thought it was strange. I know there was issues. Where would open up cap space and all those things that we don't fully understand but he's amiss on? I think you continue to be in this Can I just say one thing? Yeah in fairness to the to To the door and team that they played their their center. Forward is a Honduran international and on the bank coming off the bench. They had an Emiliano is Gary. Who is a former Celtic player? Who played at the highest level with Celtic in Europe? These AREN'T SCOPES. They just aren't and because we aren't familiar with all the names are the league. That's what we have to give ourselves right so it's part of that. It's a whole mix of answers. I don't think I've really given on proper answer. I will say they still You have to take each game and analyze it on its merits. It's not great to make the sweeping judgments but says Saprissa Montreal last night Impact were tuneup after twenty two minutes. And you'll hunt Vanegas who we will be familiar with from the Costa Rica. National Team An Aria Rodriguez on on the night in the eightieth. In the ninetieth minute equalised. That game seems incredibly one-sided considering Montreal or two nil up Saprissa twenty two shots eleven on target to Montreal seven and three that seventy two percent possession and had twice as money passes as Mon- completed passes Montreal had so that's actually probably good results module. Yeah you're right to away goals before we fully judge MLS performances. We should remind you that tonight Nyc FC are facing San Carlos and Seattle sounders. Fc Are Facing Olympia So more malicious action to come in the CA- Let's see. Jj. You have anything else on that. Not Reading probably have more wants. Those first leg wants the second leg. Go down so we have a better sense of it all What to watch for quickly here Saturday seven thirty. Am huge game this weekend. Chelsea and Spurs We talked about Tottenham before we didn't talk much about Their game against Aston Villa last weekend which was Look I don't care who was against. I don't care what it looks like when Sun scored that winning goal. It is the craziest that I've gone so far this season watching because it just felt like they needed it so badly especially on the heels of the Manchester City news where you feel like you know. Champions League places may now be within your grasp that you may not felt that way beforehand And then you come to find out that Sun within minutes of the start of that game broke his arm and played through it. You saw going off at half-time clearly hurt. I couldn't believe when he came back out to start the second half On the break is so bad. He's out for the duration of the rest of the year. Yeah it's a it was a brutal brutal blow for them at a position where they just couldn't afford to have it happen yeah And this is a huge game now. It's at Chelsea so Marino. I'm sure we'll be hearing it from those fans Chelsea who have really have been poor for an extended period of time now Also suffered the the VR game. Which was I'm glad that the there's enough distance between now and then so we don't have to go into the full McGuire Groin kicking thing like at first. I saw it when I saw thought is just flailing out. 'cause he's on his back like large beetle. The legs were going but he's kicked him. I mean I don't see how var does not give him a red carried. Such a Red card understand I I I I I was giving them the benefit of the doubt And then you see the replays and you're like what are they watching that that we're not seeing? I don't get it I don't get it. I don't get it and it was truly frustrating Aso so Chelsea. I guess we'll have a point to well not point to prove they'll they'll want look be looking to bounce back from that United Player will but I thought Bruno Fernandes played well for them. I thought it was good header from Marciano. But a draw would have probably been affairs of Tottenham. Right now are one point back of Chelsea. Chelsea set forth Spurs R v Tottenham themselves just one point ahead of Sheffield United. There is a real logjam. There like we talked about week between Fourth through ninth. So that's a big one of your biggest of the weekend. Saturday twelve thirty. Another good one. Leicester City and Manchester City second vs Third Manchester City with that makeup game against West Ham yesterday on Wednesday to know victory. Pretty much as you would say you would expect comfortable. Yeah it was comfortable. You probably would've expected more really with the form that West Hammer in may be the but at least it gets easier for west time because they have Liverpool weekend Yeah well on Monday Sunday Another good one arsenal never ten. That's at eleven thirty. Am This is coming back with a with a vengeance after this winter. Break here Yeah ninth versus tenth in that one as quietly arsenal now. Thirty four points With the foggy. -Ness of what we've been talking about with net. Chester city's legal situation. Even coming off of a four nil victory over Newcastle. Maybe they start to think look made like we've now had some time to adjust to our Texas new system. Yeah so like all the sudden they win this game and Everton who were heaping praise on a week ago now arsenal pass them saying no one game at a time. They slowly begin to work their way back into. This would be a good measure of of revolution but of where his cider at right now Because arsenal a good win against Newcastle. Yeah I mean great. Second Half Great. Second half Interest team that don't typically finish games. Well so look I would say. That's that was encouraging for them. No doubt and then the game that you mentioned Monday. Three o'clock Liverpool and West Ham. I fear for the hammers. Our friend Dave Walker from sex drugs and Carlton Cole. And all the Western way podcasts. He tweeted that they think he thinks they should sack. Moi's right now and get Allardyce to take them. Through to the end of the season he thinks Moi's will not keep them up. I think fixtures won't keep them up what you mean. I think if the Ronin now to the end of the season is too difficult ultimately I don't see them picking up enough points time. Going down would be their eighteenth. Right now off boy tottenham did them a favor being Ville the way that they did. That's still Yeah neck and neck between those two for seventeenth eighteenth. Yeah it's GonNa be a fight to the finish not a pretty one Yeah I WANNA say. That's not fair to David Moyes but desperate times call for desperate measures and it's not about what's fair right now. It's about if you believe. This is do a better chance in this situation than just do it. While this is one west. Ham's finds opinions here now but I'm just saying I don't actually know Let's see we'll have a mail bag in mere moments but I want to tell you what look you don't understand what's going on here.

It's shocking at times what you treat people because you're so you're so you're fuses so short. Yeah people say things I think. Oh that's a benign and JJ screaming at the. I'm not really screaming. I do come across way more snarky than actually mean in my replace dot is definitely true because then I read it back and I'm like Oh it's not nice. This is maybe how the world sees you. Maybe this is God's way of telling you we're GONNA start off with Alex Jones in Garth in Colorado Different Alex Jones. Well mainstream media. What isn't going to tell you about this. It's a red flag false flag operation here in the mail bag. No not that Alex Johnson sort of deep state. Okay going back to the Gulf talkative No Not that Alex Jones Christ fellas. I was home sick with the flu. Today I was watching the spurs relates. That game. I need any idea as to why some of the lights players kits had an all white red bull logo while the rest had the regular colored in logo on the front of their shirts. Twitter's just as confused as I am. Well Alex Basically what we're hearing. Is that part of the consignment of jerseys for the game was lost so they had to mix and match what they had of the other. Kate Are you serious? Yeah this is amazing. I actually hadn't heard that. Well it's just the difference between the wound. Red Bull sponsors in white and the other red bull sponsors in color so Julian Edelman actually addressed this and apparently Here's what he said. He said on the way from the hotel. The Kit wasn't complete in the different boxes It wasn't on the bus and that's why there was a bit of a mix up it will certainly be sorted out for the second leg will have the right kit. So they mixed and matched between the colored kit and the and the wicked all right That's I actually didn't even notice that when I was watching I remember. Chelsea turned up at Coventry without their away Kit She played in sky. Blue yes. They played in Coventry's awakened at Coventry. I remember gian-franco Zola in this massive jersey. Which was surely meant for Dion Dublin? And Yeah looked a bit weird. Nathan Latro. You guys turned me onto the re watchable. Podcast cheers for that now. I have the ringers job wrecked. Espn competitive. We're doing this small mom and pop organization a favor. I'M NOT GONNA lie. I've been obsessed with. I can't stop listening to it. I learned today actually in the hangover. That Paul Ryan was actually the first choice to play Bradley. Cooper's role and Jack Black was the first choice to play Zach Alpha nine. Oh can see both of that but I think it's right like I. I really think we got it right. Galifianakis is will be a better option. He plays it perfectly I think Jack back would dominate too much. There's a great. Yes that's exactly what said to. I am film savant knowing something to listen to while waiting for a new pod from you to drop and the way it's are often just never know we are obligated to say. Espn has a bevy of other quality content. Absolutely and You should definitely get the ESPN APP and download all of that including ESPN. Which is something you should all have there. We go. I always appreciate your spinoff pods of Andrew. J movie reviews. I think we do that within the podcast. Not The entire podcast. But I really love the damned united the film about Bryant often leads united wondering what your opinions are the Filmar. I think it's really good. Michael Sheen plays Brian Cloth and as we know what we know about Michael Sheen his ability to recreate Brian cloths voice as he's just a brilliant mimic We should player. Brian cloth drop the this. Is Brian Cluff? Fuss Being Ryan Club screening. Yeah let me read my favorite my favorite pieces where in the communities where Michael Sheen brain cloth just a rise at Leeds and he goes now. Then you can throw your pumps in pans and all your medals into the body Roberston. Because they don't mean a thing 'cause you achieve them all through changing which is apparently what he did say and she nails it now. That book do one thing. I would say about the truth to that book. Nathan is that John Giles and a number of leads players who were at the club at the time. They didn't sue over the movie. But they sued the author of the damned united about the factuality of things they said or did in the novel Yeah that's discouraging. Well I think Giles always feels that the players weren't as much in mutiny against cloth as people say. Okay I think that's part of it What's your favorite sports movie? Oh Man Aright I look people think this is cheesy but I just love hoosiers thick. It's great If I said I really loved a League of their own nothing wrong with classic movies and I also love any given Sunday all right little miracle I would throw in there. I think it's great movie. major league. I mean maybe the greatest sports comedy of all time right There's not a lot of good soccer ones No there's not there's not but you do like Goldwyn ethics great goal to is terrible and goal three is a tragedy. It's horrifying that it was allowed to be made. I try to pretend that it doesn't exist And then boxing movies. Ten like boxing stories tend to lend themselves to be. A boxer is good. I think the most underrated boxing movie that I've ever seen is Cinderella man with Russell. Crowe I think it's phenomenal. And it's up there for me. With my favorite top five sports underrated nominated for Oscars Cinderella. It was up for all your or was it. Okay what need to look into that You might be right. I don't know here's one for you. What I do this one before Christmas. 'cause I never read it out. The Reverend. Cj meters rector Saint Columns Episcopal Church. I'm an EPISCOPAL PRIEST IN MISSISSIPPI AN AVID RAIL. Madrid fine and a fairly recent supporter of your pod love. It don't miss an episode is. I'm applying for the position of caught off site chaplain posture to the pod. You see JJ. I've noticed you and Andrew liked to take digs at each other in good fun as a professional I know. That's how dudes often relate to each other but I also know there's a soul down there curled up like a fan from a lower league team hoping it will get noticed so andrew when. Jj Points Out oh spurs tottenham can be on your resentment bills or jj when Liverpool utterly dominated everyone except Madrid in Twenty s. Okay dig and your pride swells remember. I'm here if you need me. Plus we can always wax theological about this game we love and obsess over peace. And that's from the Reverend CJ meters rector and Combs Episcopal Church and Mississippi. I I would like to have some sort of power when I feel like you've done something wrong. I can assign you a certain number of Hail Marys. Or right yeah. I think I should have that role. I don't know if the episcopal a Piscopo Alien Church do the Hail Marys. Oh I'm Jewish. I not well I was going. I was GONNA say that I. I go full Allison Becker and invite you to like. Oh do you wanna go swimming and then I just fully baptize you. Get the reverend siege. Let's do it so annex. It's like it's like what you call it. It's like a mob a mob. So you're saying we will just dive in the pool. Hey let's you know. Let's play Reverend Reverend Gallstone. Go Grab My head. Thrusted underwater and this this cj he reverence eating out from behind the trees. And say I would I would go. And then the reverend. Cj would run down in the full gear We would make you one with Christ you see. It's unfortunate because there's really no way that I can throw you like an on the spot Bar Mitzvah. It's too long of a process guys too much damn expensive DJ law. I guess I could say. Jj come sit in this chair. That I've set up for you over here and you sit in and instantly four men come running out. We lift you. Hoist you more as it were. And that's it. You're now you're a man you've been. Bar Mitzvah. Welcome to force conversions on MTV. Maybe I can throw you a surprise breasts We're GONNA get to that area. What towards the end of the pod if not that specific ceremony yes alright. A surprise brisk would died here. Jj violent assault. Don't mind the scissors stop all right. Enough of this Finally Dave Lancashire. Dave is contacting us from New Zealand on a shortlist of places. I would love to go. It looks amazing. Yeah did you ever will often say I live in more door. Even though I just I lift like half an hour north of New York City. God knows what you think of actual more actually actually live just on the outskirts of Vermont Did you ever watch the conchords. Oh Yeah Jemaine.

It's what it's what ruined Fleetwood Mac it's a dating people within the band. That's destroy fleetwood Mac and the guy behind the counter goes Rumours no it's all true right Dave from New Zealand. You touched on during your last podcast comparing teams of the alter this year as Liverpool team. How good would it be fee for twenty one? The video game added historical teams. Like the one thousand nine hundred Arsenal's invincibles so we could play against each other. We literally said that. That's what should happen yeah. Nba Two K. series already. Does this white cat thief. Also what teams would you guys like to see? If this ever came to fruition vaccine keep up the great work why it said. I WanNa four-team tournament to decide the best primarily team. Ever this Liverpool I want the Blackburn Rovers winning site to take on the Leicester City winning site that would be amazing Shearer versus varity. Yeah I'd like that. I think ninety nine United Arsenal invincibles And we had said PEPs Man City team that set the points record. Write and probably end this. Liverpool is it weird that I want Kevin Keegan's Newcastle? That Blue. Twelve points to play some sort of okay. That was the mail bag. I want Tim. Sherwood Spurs Let's see JJ. I'll tell you what we're we're running long hair so let's go right to this red card. Let's do this and JJ my red card. I don't do things like this very often. No Daniel Levy. Oh boy I think the world of Jack Roush. I've talked about him on this podcast before. I just love his game. Just think he's a stud as a player his tight shorts so so imagine the way. I was feeling when I read this. This is from talksport. saw this over the weekend actually. Ironically right before Tottenham Played Aston Villa and Jack Relish was everywhere in this game This is from talksport Tottenham could have signed Red Hot Aston Villa Playmaker Jack Relish for. Just ready six million pounds eighteen months ago. We're not talking like eight years ago. When he was just like in middle school. Eighteen months ago. Jack Release was known unknown quantity six million pounds reports claim. Villa were willing to sell their talisman and Captain Greeley's for the cut-price fee as they desperately needed the money but levy determined to drive a hard bargain reduced. His offer from six million to four million knowing the club needed the funds or face going into administration the Spurs squad. We're about to fly off to Los Angeles for their pre-season tour and Levi's no nonsense negotiating backfired. Because by the time they landed in the United States Aston Villa had been bought by Billionaires Nassif salaries and West edens and that meant they were no longer skinned and villa. Park chiefs changed their asking. Price to forty million Levy then considered a twenty million pound offer but knew it'd be rejected. So he pulled the plug on a deal for the playmaker. Jj when that plane landed and Lee realized what had just happened. Do you think he had any moment where he thought Maybe this is God's way of telling me I should reevaluate some of my ways and by the way if there's part of me that thanks when the offer balloon back up to forty million that I'm kind of like That's not even so bad. But he had to take it to twenty million from that. I just wonder like what is. Let's say they had done. It got jealous for six million. What is the domino effect of that? Because I feel like if they had him. You know as much as I. It's hard to say this. Because Christian Erickson was such a big part of a side that went to a Champions League final. But maybe having greenish allows you to part ways with Ericsson right in a time when you can now still get like his full value and so then who knows what else you're able to do with that kind of money like I couldn't accept six million for a guy that everyone watching knew was going to be a star. He needed to get down to four. Are you kidding? And a guy who had eighteen was running the show in an FA Cup semifinal in twenty fifteen. I hope this isn't true. Like it's this is based on reports and so like maybe. I'm being a little bit irresponsible and just seeing a report. Well we're just going with what we did. We did hear that as spurs made a derisory offer for Jack Relish but I think that was in the region of twenty million at the time. So this is horrifying if true my red. Karrada back to the Groin. Region sports illustrated an amateur soccer player. In France has been suspended for five years for biting an opponents. Pinas during a fight on the pitch incident occurred during a game in November between. Sc Turvy an as to clubs in the eastern region of Lorraine separated just a ten minute drive when two players began fighting the unidentified victim. Turvy player stepped in to break it up according to local news site Lorraine OCTO. That's when the sausage player bit the turbo player on the penis. The victim was forced to go to the emergency room where he received a dozen stitches to close the wound and was deemed unfit for work. For four days. The matter was referred to a disciplinary arm of the local soccer governing body which ruled this week that the sausage player be suspended for five years. His club was also fined. Two hundred euros incredibly the victim and his Cobra also punished what he was suspended until June. Thirty Twenty Twenty first actions in the locker room and in the parking lot so I mean his actions would have been running round with half a peanut in his hand. I would imagine I don't know how that gets. You a suspension. A turbo was fined two hundred euros docked. Two points in the league standings. Now this I was GONNA say arose my interest but I got. You are really an animal. I was just thinking I've heard this somewhere before. But in a loving way on the field of play and I looked it up. This is from the Irish time. Where are you going with this? This is from the Irish Times November. Twenty two thousand and one Spaniard charge for bazaar goal celebration. Severe is Francisco Guy. Our Dole has been charged by Spanish Soccer Federation for biting teammate. Jose Antonio raise peanuts so Gerardo was charged by the Spanish Soccer Federation for Biting Team Jose Antonio Reyes Penis after. He had scored clubs four. No win or provide a lead at the weekend. That is the boy. That's the a sadly departed Antonio Reyes who went on to play for Arsenal afterwards. So you just never quite know what you're GonNa get when you sit down in the seat. Well the show. You never know what you're going to get but it was. It was a friend of the show that let us know about this so he tweeted at us his name was Dan Right. This is Dan walk up to the notifications this is ESPN alert and ESPN alert of this. Right and Dan's lock screen is a loving picture of him with his nearest and dearest under two dogs and emblazoned blocking out their faces. Ten Anna Dana Penis Bite. When reached for comment Luis Suarez referred to it as the feel good story of the year caught off sides. Man of the match Never know what to do in a moment like this. Jj any thoughts running through my head as I prepared to do this off all right. Oh no I'm not ready. It's Erling Don. That's not fair. It's more than fair game. We were born to play erling Holland Trivia. Here we go. It took erling Holland just seven games to reach ten goals. That is easily the fastest in history. The previous record was a three way. Tie Eleven Games to reach ten goals in the champions in the Champions League Do you know the three players who were who were able to score ten goals in eleven games before Holland did it in seven Imbaba. No ROLE NO VANESSA Roy. I'm going to give you a hint. Okay for two of the three I would tell you. Don't think too hard day. Are Massey. Renaldo no no thing. Think with your heart not with your head Taurus. No I'll go on tight tummy. Saudi-omani oh Roberto for me. No Oh and Adriana wouldn't those Let's see his Holland's. Ten Champions League goals are second most for a player prior to turning twenty which teenager scored more Imbaba. There you go. He scored thirteen Holland. Way Fewer Games though and last but not least this is a tough one but I chose it because of you in particular. Can you name the player that Holland claims as his favorite player? Roy Keane No Stephen Jerick no. I'm sort of saying that. Ironically oh the player that I don't often hear you say nice things about even though he's a legend like a current player.

I just saw carver time the right to say a tweet bullocks of not violate twitter's terms and conditions again make some kind of valid point because this is boring and i may not the guys is a bit of a toll john not sure why you kate mentioned in twitter violations to me. There are ways to express an opinion us was disrespectful and rude. If i say you want to beat him fine you do. I mean it goes on and goes on and goes on but cannot is just add a full. We weren't gonna talk about this any more a fort like now the beef i went down well last time saw you give give the listeners some more faith. Why would he goes on no because i will be coming back to people high thus bringing beef segment every week. Try and find some twitter beef really we're going to speak for ten minutes of the poet about all debate in my more f- peo no more normal football tokhi soldiers twitter bay from now on but yeah oh i got myself into l. E. opiates with a beef more recently so a blackhawks post string the cop at mccain too and i just wanna say author of khusein him tweet leaked information before and there was no need for this think. There's any need for these argument. I've read this conversation and i feel like you just wanted an argument so you just winning an argument one argument or you're going oh. Why are you giving false information from your souls who associates not well. Let me tell him. It's over listening yeah. Let's let's listen to the story. <hes> matt cain. It's boche in the cop. Put a tweet outside and hearing even remiss at king is not involved for some of today apparently is farmers taken. Ill the source is new to me so i can't confirm a liability. You don't act on the same fo but make. I'm sure you're patriots one hundred percent. I'm king owner just partner of heard terrible. I don't see anything wrong with that. That's way eto. These are said ought to think this. This is my main. No you can't have people twitter gone around lockridge sida arkansas autonomous muscles lauber sallies out for the season one sell him mm-hmm yeah and i bet he's not saying that he's actually saying like the associates knew of cooking myself a general. I'm going to do after these other nawar adonis terry. This is the main cut. This is what i come to you. You don't know whether to believe him or not. If you believe him and he's credible then he soaks down bar because we knowing for sure it could just be changed share and scaremongering because almost king owner as well when i had worries which is very can get on. Yes i am because of say he didn't have to say that but then if it was to be true you would've gone <hes> chase might for tweet actually yeah well although east he's not done wrong all mariah really being well off think well if he credible been fair enough but if i just don't want to see people tweet and bullock's i saw that want to say no. I didn't know if he wasn't if he wasn't he wasn't i replied to him. Sign like wash the so slot where you get any information from. I didn't know he was a known information asian league or something. I'm not to sure but he didn't reply to me. Just ignore the replies but reflects other people and sabi started king saul aids and then i i just quote tweet saying so king stars should people posting stuff like this actually reveal their source if they even going to bother her couple people asked and gave if no reply makes me think the attention seeking bullshit and then hey replied i mean there was a few of his a couple people stuck up for him. A couple apple people say that it was bollocks so it was quite avoided a sign of post many rooms before where the source has been credible and have made that clear all of them being correcting the paused. Why don't name suzy's today a stress that this was not someone who <unk> verifies reliable and i ask why can't you name the soaks and he put a smart policy named saudis or wrong. I'm just curious as to why and curiosity killed the cat social war. Somebody sat you eighteen or educate me. There's a lot more tweets about. I won't go into it but i'm sorry i think he's in the right and they swim. Well echo comes down to if you believe him if he has been in the past they say with me in the future. He's not believing him now. He's just saying that he's heard these. He's making can people away if he's not signing. It's taekema team jon. He's just keeping me. I'm an opinion but you actually understand what it's like. You do get people absolute shit for tension. Did you know paul people will be like ten minutes before comes out salad on the bench and then he stole in people over time because because was in one half the community bench saleh wherever taekema outraged attention but we're probably wanna get their name round for being pretty yeah so i mean maybe it was in the wrong. Fil am whole behinds up but let's let's just say well. Our fans think okay so you can tweet interview. Mris pays ripe defending this person or if the broncos right yeah okay leave it up to the funds less now actually into episode then and move start with all teams and i just want a site for complete transparency. Go is what we do in this. This week is we're currently record in on the sunday night but a time you hear this a main cook bitty every thousand on another could be any time in the future aw but this will be released oversee tuesday not what we're doing is record in the majority of this straight after chelsea less the game and then we're gonna come back back and go over the wolf united game on the tuesday and just punch in info so i mean my team. I have nine more plaza play on monday. I finished on for a five points. A will update my game. We rank at the end of episode per audit. Make transfers ended up on for five points ah to the little ones that absolutely awful. I don't know what i'm gonna do tame bird. We'll get to that later on as well amy. How did you do well. I'm counting on fatty. Not one point spun off goal when bay angela to mars game as some of you might know who follow me on twitter. I did tweets do actually tweet it's way on saturday saiain who should captain salomon style in an giang people's at sterling which surprised me but in a few you people sit like you should guy. He's the safe choice like if he bangs hey bang. You're going to be more upset about it. By obama. Got i went with sterling and and well thank god. I'm sorry i pay with that. Yeah point cincinnati six so toppled myself. They're all with silo hours. Just to scare to china attention was also you. The wrong decision made many wrong decisions many decisions to be honest. I mean you've ended up from five murphy. One of play cy <hes> ugly and you get one point from as pie. Don't even know yet nine to get yellows when bay might lose matsumoto's sigh. Yes well reply. Wakes burn offering a lot of people have had fairly bad weeks then again luke dane jon lindstrom some paper proper bowels paypal's teams out. Oh i have none of 'em. He didn't have any of them live out. You have been nine asai yeah unfortunately above week but what can you do. You're going to get less now. Move on into the review segment and we're going to have to re one old white back to saturday morning early kickoff where awesome play burnley. I me you actually worked sheesh game. She's gonna pin so you and i'm annoyed at u._v._a. Was because in one of my draw a couple of weeks guy hey you have and you told me take him out because he'll be more defensive. No yes no don't you lie use boils offing the problem because we don't know if he might play defensive. I'm gonna listen. He's pulled back because when it comes in egmont play more defensive well anyway. If i go with my gut which i should on i would have gone to fucking assisi's weakest points would be from right now so i mean about about that. Whoa a softish you take accountability for listening to me. What do i listen to you. Lay going to be a you. We say well. You didn't really town mates guy salad this week him but you well. I'm just gonna leave. Detainees all play the fixtures when it comes to captains. That's my strategy. She this season cut when i think things if things would have got stressed out kept on silent and try not to think about it but yeah anyway this awesome game i mean sapporo says a lot of talk about oils yet a good game they still a risk of implying depot and so liverpool spurs next to saw i think the same with our players a main album and lack of both scored all three of them suppliers like our free short safe so they were the most involved lacquer lacquer at a at point free extra which he's expected golden involvement actually plastic say and now point nineteen a still think alba's the a pick out of it so for now we need to just see that lacquer stays now than starts every game while his fear of that i mean let's just wait. A couple more wakes for returned to also players with bernie bonds at no-one pen touches the most of every one news five shots so we still looking involved volved wolves and liverpool up next for bernie as well so again we leave it to more gains free start bringing people in then the fixtures are tasty brought a norwich villa aw ever unless the pope owners will be happy with charlie taylor just go of prostrate recently when he takes his place back or for every they could. Maybe be a notch shell of four point four what's twelve mcneil closely as well when he had four shorts looked involved shy. He's gone up to six mil four five loss season. He was such a good pick but moving onto the safm to liverpool game unbelievable a main without a lot of questions and a lot of talk about liverpool recently a with address two questions in the oeste plunkett segment but for liverpool romaine no clean sheets in the first two games hack. I know have crane shades against southampton and knowing no like what show this uh-huh ceo liverpool because straightaway wanted to ditch one of them if people walk card in this week next week in a couple of weeks a probably wouldn't wouldn't go life. I was wildcard in now are probably would only go one liverpool defender my a papal actually welcome in free weeks into the season a lot people always early well well called there are pros and cons to oversee you wanna you wanna latch onto a good picture early yeah like when you start the season you do have good pigs. I'm really happy with my team still even though many points swayed but i'll hold called panicky although abu have good wakes a good way because we can't really speak johnny i'm going to get i'm going to have good wakes. Yeah well. This sign la trenton trenton robo up trenton van black wishing yet wrote my my only shen. Why can't see myself getting rid of any of them. If trent does dropped obviously than a will for the exact same infra so good for robo train fantastic. He's just so good and clean shakes. All gonna come a norwich. They conceded against a shit pook. Okay yemane no shame in there and southampton. It was a freak goal. It was a free go adria and being a bit with shitter now so disappointed in our laze in li- points where left lane chase because fucking atrean kicks standings my lion yeah was this i mean also at home nex by normally ripe us us many bernie newcastle chelsea schiffer dinar eight lester. There's still some good fixtures offering live form personally job site i monnaie. She is a good pick. I feel like aids to begin anymore. Tames we onus is going to ceylon. I'll just quickly round up defense again law on on keeping a very close eye on robot been trained and again it was the same shit from novic game robo had formed touches in twin one hundred twelve two seventy by more than the final word as well but the crosses trent had fourteen cruces rope. Oh four that set piece jew is for trade make such sasha difference so if this keeps continuing a think i'm happy with train but when it comes to the attackers a main saleh monae and for maino their <music> all looking good as h uva saleh was pretty poor on saturday by standards and more information both scored but sally at free shorts and to pen touches monae at two shorts both in the box and five touches. I don't know might mon-. I mean monet on a match salar season and he's looking is going to carry on doing again. There's a case there is a case for going more over saleh. The only difference he's the captain c do not feel goods put in the armband on morning game swear as a to feel perfectly comfortable capping saleh so for now now. I'm gonna stick with silo a nest as massive reasons to go on. I i'm just gonna stick with seller for me. No es also catching my though if you you going to be scoring goals for mainers cheapies one why fall he had two shots as well and free pin touches yet but honestly think for me. No he's just going to be a pick for me. Monnaie salvages sorry better than whoa. You only started watching season where he was poor. All season for me. No is a class player. He's streaky. That's the thing is it will be on shit foam. Four seven eight gangs many then he blows he blows on cold for a mainly skorts. I five game so far so he also the next g of point free five morning. Only point fifteen sarah exchange of point four five andy andy blanks evac disappoint in when it comes to science a still a full avoid by did win the game on extravagant which should be encouraging faw aw saints fans may is nothing there may be shy adams burr moving onto the aston villa poem of game and a main a wanted a bit more. I wanted a bit more from our bom. If attack when it comes to villa traffic i a mcginn still the guys they were two shots against spurs traffic at the most pin touches hot cheese mccain had six shots six is a four point five midfielder and these to be the glass goto mcginn only at two of those shots in the book so i'm still not really sold on villa at the moment but they fence his look impre- snot looking very appealing when it comes to bouma harry wilson had pretty good stats he had five shorts and free of him in the box a lot. The more king and wilson did king at two shorts us wilson one fuck off of an awfully so now what they mean for the first two weeks so they bang against the promoted sides. I mean look to get the game will the guy miss here now and of go off of these guys act so fully of palmer f- football murph greenish. We'll give a little shout out actually because he adds an extra year of one point seven so we know he's a poll up. Just need returns to stop coming for him. Have you got any folks on this. I may be much of a day this week so i did <hes> greenish to veteran boomer. Oh sorry you've been listening yes. I was just saying you could still transfer next week. Slot enough money put costly stuff and like of seeing the first ten minutes you'll buy buy is gonna go see so like oh. My god returns for the whole week like what starts in my game where you can just nothing on. I yeah i just think get rid even considering getting we'd move since spa offers. I just don't know who to get like. Oh just aren't not like a fool like the striker. Is the marva really highly priced and then you've got oh you like sixties. <music> speaks point fives. He right paul by pokey pas a yeh tpa no well. We'll get to that when he gets a more plan transfers segment per. Let's move on to an west. I'm was your food nisei me so much shall about why of say at one point asaba that brought and golden going 'cause i of c- he fep yankee owner traumas and then it went down to anyway anyway. Yeah i wanna point out the subsidies game mo pie and antonio because they dominate the stats even though they came on second off they for the most pen touches coaches of everyone my paid five pence cheese and two shots in twenty free minutes with point five free exchange and tony manage free shirts in forty five minnie's like could be going to keep an eye on me mo pay as soon as he starts star in games on the pa is in is in polk. Imo pay as a double up unbelievable tross odds also has to get a mention he had four shots over in the box as well. It was one of the most lively players is can. I just mentioned actually what happened to don. Get any fuck fuck. No wait nora o. Norwich pies. I don't get any noise peres talking about norwich yeah. You'd you said about turkey. I mean we had this conversation loss episode. I'll get avoid norwich defenders. It is for the fixtures yeah yeah. I not pook is is pook. Forego so pook is obviously it'll be a shell with brian. My stem truss art. Did you watch did you did you notice he was the one who school for broad twice. What is allowed now. I was like you all about seven o'clock this morning. I was half asleep yeah anyway. He's six million. He didn't start the first game which was quite unlucky for owners is looking like a bull. La trust osmo pay gross folks if he carries on stall in to go some good attackers may as montoya owner i mean he's got one game left for me many man saying gaming for and he's he's out. He's gone dan bern. Maybe a shout yet to short some four paints. Hutches looks a real fret area early but that's about it for bra and there's is not much to say on west time when away comes back which i'm hoping we'll be for next. I mean they have what food norwich villa next free so surely some goals also be schooled by west time and fully in l._a. Back that could be an okay shall moving onto the everton what for game and again more more pain for the fantasy plonker just more pain why not go with charleston overtaken. Why did he do that. I mean i think people deeper with some people went co when dane which is con- approving that hof milk saving really isn't worth it 'cause. Dane got an assist common. Go yellowcard your advice. He's actually she isn't it. Would you mean oh. You've lack a lot when we were talking about who to maybe get when we did the preview and a latte. You owe commenting good pay pop up of a ball yeah and now you lot come and shit. Komo's got to clean cheese. Maybe he's the guy he's not. He's done then liverpool defenders thing as outdone coleman woman milosevic games which are expected thing may six crosses in the game as well impressive free shorts and one in the box so things still looking like a good pick the fixtures forever and are still goods among machala sicker in the attack which had free shorts old in the box yet to amazing amazing chances both up by and he missed them both a really wanna get rid of richarson just caught theory vinegar away surely scores xiaomi. Surely i'll tell what you see which is not you said all our seasons woah you've got and i i don't know why i'm just of charleston fan. <hes> become the only one i think you are the but yeah i mean for what foods i look. Fucking shit is full avoid for me at the moment choi. They need a point. Wait for four weeks jay everyone else. There was nothing impressive there. I'm quite surprised that data fire ain't been on four muchly. Damn radio and la season yaris quashed rickie player. He got played on the wing. The first game and sumpter lay size not look into a promising for him but let's now move onto ba lost free p._m. Game the best who lost a snowing newcastle and pokey part in it is a pokey paul. A four goes into games. What's it's a hat trick from tamie perky fool like whoa we're only judging from two game so far and he could be the seasons jimenez. Maybe even better. I mean everything thing. Just go from him. He had eleven penn touches and seven shorts owning the pokes. The stats are control. That's hurricane starts. I mean the caviar is is against newcastle and they looked fucking horrendous back. Pokey was left in acres. He had no choice. That's going out trick yeah. No choice cantwell for norwich is a four five meets who got to a cease. If he keeps his place i mean other now taught can well the winning norwich fans now. If he's going to keep his place he deserves to he could be a replacement for the donka or it could be a perfectly good fo fm it but it feels like everything's gonna co free poopie when they are cantwell always of annoys attackers my pal in comparison to pokey and yes amy but defense still you wouldn't avoid from me. I thought about that defense. Not you not you deny any of them bar. You did sites me about when we were watching him when they win. The the always championship championship in ula alcohol look him u._k. Bouquet and then went on pro him up in the kospi weeks guy. You don't get any the players from this team what team akon already wise malpractice type battery this h h. I always think he's no no week or no no y. Yeah well no. That's not true a problem it saw it they at liverpool away first game choke say nc in gaming free and five. That's tough fixtures perfectly reasonable to avoid them for now. Kooky is is proving fixture proof so i'm perfectly fine bringing in pokey for choke say perfectly farmers but let's take a little break and then we'll move onto the fifa kickoff the on t._v. lights at a guy then where was city spurs. Oh i'll just caught tyke spurs spurs. What are we get lucky every single fucking guy a call tyke it but cannot just mention what hurricane this time yeah. How we kind looked pre invisible to be. I sire ozzy. Am the best saying don't get cain. Another cease now goes to goes. We got to go so far. This season tame is obama young shit. I know cost home. Judging pook. Go hat trick. I mean it's not reasonable to bring kane in this week. It really really i'll pepper on school. One go against newcastle. That's good thing nine. He's bongo. Oh so we'll put listeners will remember this fuck. Your main son is back now and that's a shell. I mean what on account we'll send down to charleston up too soon boom. I mean point to show where the mini. I'll have to find some more money. Bernard bernard won't do that but that would. That will be the logical thing to do it. I mean saying not deploy. Now is a lie in the pecking order is the same process on on he absolutely posted him and sterling sterling at thirteen pence she's katie had six but not i had known an aquar- only only five when it comes to shows sterling at six or in the box but not about five and four in the box and the bruin who had four we've we've only two in the box so i mean from the stats bernado. He was quite lucky to score think he hit the ball to the bar. O'connor member was napping in atlanta motor that point for langa mode for proper angle made federal garage. She left off. I for that game but yeah i mean tidy tidy base policy to this. Look some real sterling again. Absolutely essential jas owes came on a manage four shots so again him an aquarium. Mike in each of a bad picks to be onus ends. You ever want to see you wear volume pep to find out what that was about. Forget okay into sobs pep. How'd it go him. I don i tonight but in a quiver apologize win. Jay z. scored the winner. You know because because all my knee was i bet you sit down yeah. Yes looks can rock. Bass seem to wear wall woah anyway just around up stocks. Katie bean sterling both at one point zero six x g._r. So looking tasty for spurs rose a main. Lucas moore scored again still don't really think you should be bringing. You mean mommy reasonable to hold on a main other now is he gonna stop aren't doc on it now. It was benched before sony came back so east got a hat trick in a champions league. Semi-finalists do go ba- go against the will mean anything to park. I i soon and kind for me. Maybe call copay is but let's move on super sunday where we don't have as many stats because like i said we're recording this paul on the sunday straight after the games shift organi aids versus crystal palace and it was a game. There's only one man to talk about in it man alive jon lindstrom whose english than you realize till today but he adds point five one x g some stats foyer. I'm point five exi-. He's four mil defender east aw in and it's the only reason i don't have him because sheffield united fans on twitter so fucking adamant he would start. He start the first game of go to a cease. He started this game and scored in the winner. What can i say if you ain't got him you missing now and may ann i may committee now. That's like fifteen points yeah yeah fifteen for four zero defender. He plays midfield and he was attacking so i mean i've got what fucking rico who don't play anymore. I need to make that move but i've watched so many big player is right now. There's not much of a cyber. Anyone wants to be onus lunchroom yoni gora or care about callum robinson when injured which is a shame and crystal palace by can just fuck off. Let's move on to the chelsea leicester game and more anger from the broncos. I always say peres you can fuck off to peres our mound on eighteen. Is that not the most omar thing to do. I did that immortal drafted elia so you didn't do here did do it. You confirm transfer of you know they haven't done it. I'm not gonna do it. I was looking at on monte. The only thing is i mean yoga as he's. If you picked perez you saw picked him for long term. He knew wolves and chelsea. I who games they've got chef organi aids and palm of next next to maybe you hold. I mean you should be holding fear ackley but he's like so fucking bad. I'll tell you what each store. It's a funny look a bit goods. In that second second off. The game can be open. It was playing more sensual founding spice and then he got stopped off for mark o'brien. He got stopped off in a firsthand quite early early artist. I wanna say none of it probably gonna plush soon as well. Joe will actually these might be even more angry because i had syllabus spoils boils him and the new win no. He's going to be more expensive upgrading so as well. I've done a novelist to cease because you for fucking full points. You could only blame yourself your tamie. I can only blame you awesome my voice and if you're going to blame me when something goes wrong yeah. I am going to blame you for someone who you come first pays for people last year i fool you. We're gonna wrap go well. I'm talking about it because you've let me down right. You'll make mateo tame suffer right now. Okay stop asking me for my voice in a caillebotte deal to do anyway. Lester don't really they care about anyone. Apart from soil shoe who's a four five defend freedom hema bima menteur placement. Even under fixtures ain't great shorts <hes> mm-hmm. We'll have to see your now but for chelsea makes amount baby. If mesa mountain wyoming before the game stall aids escorts a go in the box he took <unk> shows a little bit more rates may get subbed at any point is so many midfielders for lampard's and still go lofta shaken hudson at twitter comeback back but he seems to like mesa mount law and he's been looking for is been passing your test it fucking six mil. He's fucking six mil issues. This value should value but that just about does it for the sunday games and that just about does it for the sunday recording. We're now going to move on to the wolves ah game in which will be talking on the tuesday night so we are now post monday night football. The wolves in you not game has it's happened. There's been a couple of updates to my team since the early apologies podcast but we'll get into all that manual a wolves i mean what was your folks. She works this game. I did much this game. Well some of it and pink yeah some of it and what am i foes. Would you folsom some wolves. Is there any wolves plans you want. We'll see. I have just harper. I'm just <hes> to start really ni- i think wolf to looking good. I looked bit live birds. This euro par is really. It's really affecting them and they've got every i i for the next few weeks saw thunk i don't think wolves looking goods you know seeing people matt doc superstars of losses and taking off a half time for adama toil right who looks absolute flames to be fair and gogi credit to never go yoni scores bangers that was not to be their yet unnamed that from both teams to score <unk> aca which got me seven equipped which fucking native because manny skin cyber was a beauty but to rep up wolves if you've got shorter a. three pinkies finds a hold not much else going on in the six point five truck range often you'll be okay but not aids a maintenance options everywhere everywhere. Who are you looking at for unite. Amy and i quote lights rush burt and then he didn't got the assise but you weren't lot amazed in none of them. Were really amazing none of them at all what great ex- g. o. wreck say except poke ball oversee at massive extra for that. Apparently he missed it to being here. We get taken off pins now than i have no idea how many e._m._s. from to be taken off penghu is why she he is a cold hearted. Assassin is a nice man. When it comes to penalties. It should be taken a more but we just don't know women looking at the stats. I mean attack him wise. We're looking more at marshall rush food as opposed to poke bar and you know moscow seven six rush for eight six. They say marshalls applying straw car but some people were saying he drifts out wide. When it comes to average positions marsha was still the most forward in this wolves game. Rush ashford was actually slightly tapered in dinu james and then when we're looking at defenders because one based mcguire sure leo offer something different short offer assist potential when peaceful bonus and slab it for gulf rat when base was further forward than sure he had more touch it in the final further than everyone everyone except the new james at one cross russia in james most of the crossing that game so any of these stats affected your opinion a fool la give a full week stats and you just don't say anything yeah not just i don't know what to side. It didn't know steps will impress you or marshy. Al seems i he could be a good paik. Take him deny. I mean the fixtures. Nov aids are really good. Now i start and we've palacio home often. I think one of the attackers is a great idea. Bill looking goods and i think the defense he's looking okay as well never really affordable. I'm finally unite. I'm a fanny night aide but let's just about does it for the game week. Review just want to die the martin segment earlier in the episode because we now have overall ranks and number one point two million sitting on one hundred twenty points. I'm yowen one point four million. Is that good nova. Uh he's terrible terrible. How two weeks of a too bad let one bad week so it's good to be completely. Volatile is going to be up and down. What is the high slot was the lowest but the highest so what's the worst i could be worth six million fingers. Six million people and i'm one point full. Oh yeah how is that bad. Whoa you only saw a megan hold corps f peo- players in for at least twelve hundred k. summing mind for top ten k. am i a hardcore f- peo- power will doing a poker so you've got your own twitter account your own if peo- dedicated twitter account yes pre hall cool all right well. I'm still not lie. I'm still not like overly wli fast by well. Maybe you should be no. I won't do well. I want to just like be certain friends more than anything now for that. He got for your heart. You finish it until i finished shape because of my big fucking moves now big fucking moves. Let's go onto the previewed in we got. The plunk is cleaning. Chances are plan transfers and captain oughta plonker and their mini-league update. I'll stop with the clunkers cleaning chances for game week free and so this is your first. I'm doing this for me. I'm using it. You know what these are. Now i mean. Do you know what they seized. Do you have any idea what is the punk is. Cleaner chances i pretty much the teams with the best chance of a clean sheet this wake right kayak on so of looked at bookie's odds of converted into percents chances and in fifth place this week with a forty percent percent chance of a clean. She is lester away to chef organi aid in fourth place by forty six percent chance of a clean sheet. It's wolves home burnley in third place by fifty percent chance each man city away at bournemouth in second place they fifty two percent percent chance is she not home to palace and then in first place this week they fifty eight percent chance of a clean sheet. He spurs against newcastle so we'll actually obviously gonna happen. His name will so if you've got the fenders from five teams. You should be looking good for clean. Shays i think i need to what do i have one now. I have to yes. I've all car and when be well less segue into it than your same for this week. What's your plan. Transfers will show plank captain. I i saw you free transfers yeah. I've got free transfers so no popular opinion. I'm gonna suggest i've been thinking of downgrading saleh tomorrow night. Upgrading silva dived suv as to deploy known but then on we'll meet an extra mill. I need an extra meal so do i get rid of wilson and get someone else but who because i leave a baby but he's got hard fixtures right. He's tone says yes that will get you debris winner as a win on do i wanna in state do a downgrade uh of silva to an upgrade of an straka who you want to take you straka to rochford wilkerson to rush foot could bake fake nessie lubar tomorrow shell state marshals more by about point one yeah so yes i can a- could do that could go to rush vote from loosen but that's i point. Six is an ambulance six yeah so then anita loos of sleigh point. You haven't really full frame era. You're supposed to be prepared and what you're gonna sigh. Hey what was your worship plans. You could do as an adult new look but do i want to give it a sell out to get money or read about that. Well let me talk about more team because it's help you now every guy. Is this year wildcard or yes a carbon leave you the long hard he's on. The wall called called a company. You've done this job. What was one of your tapes for the beginning of this as an off price every row of ever move lichi save all your chips too lost cost well now now i wall cars are always team. Dependent second wildcard or i say try and save for the double game weeks the baby i was team dependent yes or the great week. One one returns but free pliers. Yes i'd one bad week. Yes i had to free transfers and you should never walk hard. When you have to freeze yes my team was plans long-term with plasma edison and now and yes ace you fucked you may think i'm panicky of just completely off the rows but it feels good when oppressed that wild card you know what it was. I was listening to a car host. The seed was planted listened to await cheating podcast and one of them. I think it was josh who's done really well by flakes. He's in lack but top ten k. at the moment was talking about wild card in and a full. Why would he while call when he's doing so well and applying blonde to seed and i've been hovering over the wall called but anyway because i._t. Freeze or could have done wilson's apu key and peres nice to moscow and maybe a coulda done that that is what you shouldn't yeah. Maybe i'll shoot on that but i still had king gates man's to e steward richarson certain people to keep him against villa but there was just too many too many bad picks and in a look to kind a looked canes. This fixtures new cost home on the best fixtures. You're ever gonna get all snow away also defenses poor quesnoy schools against us and and then palestine home another awful tame hours lack of got wilson and king which two strikers do a one kooky is one of them. There is no another standard option so a full kind. Let's just play to wall cars. Get canaan and look. This is the way i look at yeah your your fifteen players. You can fuck off the bench for the second goalie. You can fuck off the third saab ado like to have at least two good subsoil so i aimed players of changed ten of them so fashionable good wildcard autonomy eas. I'm not saying that your current going to be good because awful. Your fucking team was shit. Shit my so. I'm glad you foul cardi of anything but i just think that you've gone too early a time food light. Maybe i'll have and you know of a couple of options in wall off. I make the wrong one. I'm going to be fox but this is what i'm thinking. I have to have to go long term now because i'm not gonna be as wildcard in sale at least january so a need long-term picks as a couple plaza. I don't have we might hurt me but this tame amy's fucking flames and i think i'm going with this one so oh i just want to point out actually that ado normally walk called god very early in the seasons it was only last season a held it and our walk caught in gang mcfaul ainhoa season and you know what you know what i mean it. Fucking can hurt me. It hurt me. It hurt my team. Yeah good autom- fucking bad matzec award team in neetu and my team was shit. Luckily accounts back anyway. This is matt same right now so go pope in go now a fox of edison which are three feel bad about because i've spent so long thinking about that side. I want to see defense announced a defender and really good fictious now for is i've. What do i'm still trying to four four two and this is my back. Four van black entrenched still stay in their two of the free that remained from the whole team same there is a paul a made up once reads of one of them but for now they stay could easily move trenton lippo if he so pope fantastic trinh and a van gogh zintchenko oh cape him as long as he carries on playing and then my fourth defender is soya new four point five budget for less westar. Did you not one thing after last week. There is a part of me that sort of thing so one thing per injured so and i just caught a ford him i'm going to get him over liverpool or say defenders and then fifth defender oversee of goya joe lindstrom oversee and of a before he rose impressed last which was quite good so that's feigns ma four midfielders monae no sal oh that makes me fola woah can do eat well. I feel good about that but it's only because i need extra mill on the wall cards. A lot of people were finding going. Aww siler is form but this is my reason why i've done that while get too but yeah no cellar about sterling still as my own. You have apply their state. I'm in quote marshall and mountain and then fifth midfielder of told can't will new best fifth meats and up top of kind and pokey. We've we've wickham his bench for dr so of go monet marsh ousterly mound kind. That's a share in overtop six attack ammonia missing awesome attack back of also got kind and sterling for captains now and that's what looks at all won't actually captain seller for a while so so it makes sense it down greater monae so vast my team. The only thing i don't lack is a don't like only having senchenko as defense. I don't like not having the brenner paul. I mean might get debris in arena could upgrade mount omar shall remain canine trainer. I'm going to tell you about so. That is my wolcott team now. A fool of that's your sought me out long-term. What's your folks to me. I think it's a lot better than tame is at the best thing ever seen in your home until i laugh nah. Yes it is not kind. He would be another guy for me. Kinda gets new a new car so but he's also a captain this week at the moment i will tell you now. You'll get long gone. That's it. I think we've already spoken market. Free goes if well forego forego mongo or might still go to sterling his captain just because stirred likes planets boomer but i'm a simple man like i said my strategies to plight of fixtures. You can't get bevan. New costs were home but that is my tame glass less now. Wrap this up. We've the mini-league update showing phillips lips remains a top ease free kyw overall rank in the world right now. He's on one hundred six eight points so congrats you show later for two weeks running he same name his. I'm so lonely which is a bit thought that they are you by la. Not you okay if you need a friend shown the the can help you if you'd say well actually you're much but foreign lay a off the plonker quite a few questions in this week. I move start. We've golf f._b._i. Shock he asks when the tamie become ping and then you also tweeted again and asks one. Is it too early for broughton assets right now. South coastal bay city away and two in your wisdom is pook fixture proof to be fair to the kids. He did say was school goals so he's awesome twice about kooky. Yes golf poo. Okay is a thing there's just no one better at that price point and in that position there isn't anyone yasser maybe but he hasn't scored a call all yet pook is on four the fixtures ain't great granite burr foolish safe to bring poopie into your team and i think is going to rise once or twice wash more before came eight free starts and then he's ever questions about brought an s._s. A lot and i says a to a really lot mo- pay a reluctant. I saw a thing plaza dunkelberg good as well. They sure sat rotation for the attackers at the moment or add montoya for the first free game weeks. That was my plan line. Minnows going to teach him coming forward. See maybe white a couple more weeks. Poor is known for routes high in a loss of a feeling. We're not gonna get now to tackle for a while. Dolan king naughty naughty free asks walkout time yet. Yes yes y'all to fucking can yes. I mean team dependent knock. I said i can't tell you when or when nazi wall called a lot of people say to it during an international break even then a fitness rated to do it when you think tommy's roy elope good players to walk really early and it turns out foreign saw so go with your heart. Dalwin danko of the punk is advice as in macy's pankov because i'm of dunk this well but then mr puncture smashes maintenance week then. I'm gonna think fuck well. You've still got you well. Call it sar trae crossman episode james asks. Is it time to teach or train very expensive in return. I two games and increasingly difficult fitches. She's coming up and to add to that at what beta also asks live. Don't look flew him. Should we get rid of one two or none of defense or was of said earlier on this podcast still think too is fun on wall called in and i'm still keeping to the second output is too good for me. Fantastic is going to school goes trinh is going to school goes and gets this w-e-b-o i'm not to kane on as i said with the stats he does get more involved. I think both of them. If you want to get rid of account your really con- i think going with none as too much though i they can see the freak goto southampton and one goal to an attack in norwich is not the end of the world will still keep clean. She's at roy and nani only free eleven. Smith asks westford or more show and you know all signs point tomorrow. Show a milka play in our p. While rafferty play impose i immed- your member lows terms out of position our position in reverse abolition yeah really nothing going for rush foot except season history more xiao is never done it for a whole season he comes in and now he's streaky and at doesn't filming confidence whereas rochford a fool is gonna trickle along until all season long a day think at some point russia will go up front a marsh schauble. Go out on the wing but this issue speculation so for now you just go to show that meal. Saving is massive and then my last question christian i f peo- badger are you less hung over this week. Plonker talk to me about suppliers might be of deal in which afloat barclay and king king or shutter to get off our him or mccain and pokey a lot depends on barkley. We s badger. I am less hangover lesson over on the sunday i and on the tuesday suppliers. I just don't think you can go for him. Ovar mcginn or mount if you're going to get rid of barclay money's amount of fingers a little bit safer the barclays obviously park it was trump completely but if you need the point five savings between suppliers mcginn a lot mcginn more the featur
