"In senior is an established player at a big Italian club, has been for a long time. He's been a big part of the Italian national team at Italian national side that won something very recently. The Euros, just in July, I certainly haven't forgotten. And assuming they make the World Cup and obviously, you know, they still have a playoff to get through to be able to get to the World Cup. He's gonna be fresh on Mancini's mind. I think Mancini's view is also different from that of some of the previous Italy bosses who, and the way they viewed MLS. So no, I don't think it would hurt in senior at all, certainly not as far as this World Cup cycles concerned, assuming Italy make it, of course. In fact, they might actually help them because given when the MLS season ends, depending if they make the playoffs or not, he might actually be more rested and fresher for the World Cup. Again, third time I'll put the caveat in there, assuming it'll be qualified because I take nothing for granted. Okay, last accuracy check with you then. Is there been a misunderstanding due to the tax structure here on the figures that we're hearing of insignia coming over to North America? For me this part is absolutely hilarious. This, there has been a misunderstanding. And it's the same misunderstanding that we had with Joe vinco when jovian co moved. In Italy, it's customary when we talk about players wages. We talk about them in net terms. That means after-tax terms. That means what is actually in your paycheck when you go home in the U.S. and England elsewhere, they do it in gross terms, how much are you costing your employer? Now, those figures that are out there for what, for what Sydney was being offered, they were between 9 and 11 million, which is more than what he earned now, certainly more than what Napoli are offering him. But it's 9 to 11 million gross, not net. In Italy, those figures have been reported by some media outlets as net and so all of a sudden they're like, oh my goodness, he's making crazy money. You know, he's making he's making more than any by far more than any other player in Syria. He'd be a before to say no. Well, the reality is those figures are gross. And jovica joked about it as well. He said, you know, when I went over, I read about the money that I was going to earn. And then I got to Canada and I found out that the figure was gross and I had to go and give nearly half my salary to the tax ban. So apparently he was unaware of this too. But which doesn't say reflect great on him. But yeah, no, these figures are gross figures, not net. Captain of Napoli, though, gab, what's been made of it, the noli rumors back in Italy. Inevitably, I think not believe fans it would be huge blow for him. He's not just Napoli's captain. He's from Naples. He's on Naples. He left to form himself as a footballer. He came back. He has a bond. With the city. And it means more to him. There have been a portion of the Napoli supporters have called him a mercenary and have really had a go at him. I personally think from the club perspective, they've taken a hard line with him on his renewal because they also look around and they say, okay, well, we've got to get this squad younger, maybe cut some wages. We have a semen. We have losano. These guys are going to be our future, more so than players like Greece Merritt's, or in senior, so if you want to stay, it's going to be in our terms. That's the attitude they took. But obviously, from the perspective of some of the fans, all they see is, you know, the guy who loves the club, the guy who's from there. The guy who's from Naples, you know, all of a sudden considering a mega offer. And halfway across the ocean, yeah, they're not taking it well at all. Well, Gabon Jules discussed topics like this and many more on the Gavin Jules podcast. If you would like to hear more from gab and Jules make sure to download that wherever you do get your podcasts. Craig, we know that you're a fan of viral goals. Now wondered if you guys had seen the spring ring a roses? Oh, I thought. I was to be honest with you, I was really rigorous at the box. To be quite honest with me, I was really just enjoying watching the second half of this program. I was waiting for it. Yeah, I'm like, I didn't know we were taking part in this show. After late, half sex. I'm watching. Would you have done that? Of course you're ready. Here's what we're going to do. No. You wouldn't have done that. No chance. No. He Billy a week ago. What causes us that? I thought something you could produce it, but you got.

"For being with us. She will be at that game and it will be available for you on ESPN+ on Sunday. Let's talk about the possible departure of Lorenzo in senior to Toronto FC, juvin coast quotes have been making the rounds in MLS circle, said it's not real football. That's something else. However, they've got good infrastructure. And I'd make the decision again, especially for those figures. I've got my cottage is with us again, and it's another translation issue here as well. So the quotes are accurate, but gag I'll have to ask you, is there some context to be had here too? Well, look, you have a very small diminutive forward from Italy being offered a large contract to move to Toronto. Obviously everybody decided, hey, let's go and talk to the last guy who did this. Let's talk to Sebastian giovinco. And so he was basically interviewed everybody in their mother, though not me interviewed him the other day. And among the whole thing, he did say, it's not real football. He said, real football something else, I think it sounds a lot worse in English than it sounds in Italian. I think within the context of what he said, he had a lot of praise for MLS and for this time in MLS, he went into detail about how, you know, for just to give you some context about how when he was there Toronto with Jose altadore and Bradley, was a much stronger team about how in his opinion, and the last was much better back then, because you had kakai and Steven Gerrard and goodness those wells. And he felt that MLS wasn't on the level that it was at when he was there. But he was in no way, I think, disparaging of the whole apparatus. And like you said, he said, I would do it again in a heartbeat because I had a great time when I was there. Should they get to the World Cup Italy gab? And he also did say that a move to North America would potentially take insignia off the radar for the Italian national team if he to go to MLS. Is there some truth in that? I strongly disagree with him there. I think he's reflecting his own experience, the reality is jovin coincident, continues in a different place to where jovica was when he moved to when he moved to MLS. In senior is an established player at a big Italian club, has been for a long time. He's been a big part of the Italian national team.

"Is it better than gab for the club to cut their losses now and let a player like dembele go? He's free to negotiate from the 1st of January. It's free to negotiate for the 1st of January, but he'll still be there and still be on their books until June 30th. Unless you find somebody to take him for free straight away, which would be silly because you still need it between now and the end of the year. I think dembele is agents and we said the same thing on the garbage usher are doing exactly the right thing. Just sit tight and wait. You've got a contract through June 30th. Until they put a contract in front of you that you like or until your circumstances change or until, you know, maybe you can win over chavi, maybe you can get more money, maybe a more playing time. Maybe you decide that there are other clubs for you. There's not like they're going to take that contract away. Because as genma told us the other day, if you want to replace the belly, you go out and put real money on the table. So there's absolutely no imperative or urgency for usman dembele to sign a new deal now. Unless it's the kind of deal that he wants to sign and that satisfies everything you want. Otherwise, could you sell them better in January? Possibly, but what incentive would dembele have to be sold because every penny that would go to transfer fee this January is a penny that wouldn't be going to the ballet or his agents. So he's much better off waiting for free agency if he's going to leave. So I don't think there's any scenario unless they make them a really serious offer that he's happy with. I don't think there's any scenario where you can somehow push them ballet into putting pen to paper now. You might have a shot come the summer, though. And Jenna, what's the latest feeling back in Barcelona on the future of Houston and dembele? Well, yeah, I got mentioned. It looks difficult that he might be the sitting to live now with a free card because he will lose the signing bonus. So it doesn't look that smart for him. So I think that there are felonies negotiation in this deal. They were very optimistic last week. Actually, they put that renewal in the Ferran Torres operation saying that they have been talking with the player. He really wanted to stay and he was accepting a pay cut. Well, everything was not like this, what they were talking. So they are kind of upset because also it's a player. It's the second most expensive signing in this club's history and he has only been able to play half of the games in fourth season and help. So both parts are still talking, but his running will have seen a huge setback and it looks right now very difficult because he's claims are unaffordable for Barcelona. It's a 30 million per season 30 million for renew signing bonus plus 15 million for the agent for as a signing one of as well. So they can not afford it. And as I was saying, any business school will recommend this kind of tactical, because it comes a new coach, chavi, he says, I love this player. I really need this player. I need him to say, then the president says that he's way better than embark. He can be better. And then the president says, we're going to sign, then you sign a player for 55 million. And then you see to negotiate and they say, I don't have money. So please speak up your salary. So it doesn't look very smart for Barcelona. So the transverse Tetris is just one of Barcelona's problems at the moment. A big one, the number of players that are missing due to COVID,.

"Is this something that buy an aunt saying? I think the simple fact of the matter is, I don't think chavi has any preconception against it simply he needs strikers. He needs other players. He needs to go around Torres. And the only way you're going to get that, apart from those fantasies that keep coming out about umpteen castle and Coutinho to arsenal and the other stuff that gets churned out from the Catalan press, the reality is you have saleable assets and you have assets that can't be sold like Coutinho, like MTT because they make too much money and they haven't performatively. So junior dust is somebody for whom there is a market because he's young because buying one and before because they still definitely could use somebody I write back and attacking right back. And for all those reasons and Biden also have some money to spend. So for all those reasons, he is a guy that you feel that maybe you can sacrifice. Certainly a lot more so than Frankie deyong or on Sofia or people like that. So I think that is the main reason why death is in there. I don't think it's javi looking at him and saying, like, look, I don't think you're any good. I'm from Byron. It's a great deal. If they can get him for even less than what Barcelona paid for him, then, yeah, considering that they were after him when he moved to bars in the first place. Jens back in with us now. So not in Chevy's plans, but in bias for such genial deaths do you see it that way, Jan? No, what I've been told from buying there's no chance that they will do business with tests in this transfer window. Yes, there'll be an interest in him as has been said. And maybe they had to a need for that kind of player, but by Munich a concentrated in this window to get players out to get player money in. They have had too many free agents going. He's been offered. I used a part of the stellar group, but it's been offered to buy him his offer to Chelsea. There's no takers that buy an atom moment and I will be very surprised if he's a Bayern Munich player during this window. Let's touch on another player that is still at Barcelona at the moment, too from dembele, but the latest word is that negotiations between the club and the player are said to be breaking down in terms of him renewing his contract. If he wants more money, maybe that's not going to happen for him at Barcelona..

"Have to figure out whether a whole bunch of money to him. I don't think what I was going to necessarily make waves. I appreciate the triangle with Atlético and Barcelona. But he went to have a contract in hand. So the only way they let him go, I think would be if they found a replacement in midseason. They've been linked with general casca from swallow, obviously very young player, but a genuine center forward. I think this is very, very difficult to pull off as jemma said. You still have the issue of Alvaro morata's wages. You're adding something like another 5 to 6 million gross sorry 5 to 6 million net, which is what like 10 million gross onto your wage bill at a time when you already need to reduce it if you're going to pursue this idea of having Ferran Torres available to you in January. That's a lot of genius. You've got to sell there. Yeah, well, obviously, let's talk a little about genio deaths because his future is uncertain right now. We will get to that book just because we were talking about fat and Torres and register in there. And jemmy, you touched on it. It's still not registered at Barcelona. What's the latest situation with Ferran Torres is signing? Well, it's not registered because it's not possible yet. Barcelona, they like drama. And they like to start the house from the roof down. So beginning at the end, the transfer market winter transfer market, it's still not over. And it opens the generally the third. So that would be the first day also he's injured. So he's not able to play. So they have a little bit more days to resistor and to make him available to play. But the situation is the same as before. He they have the spending limit. They need to get rid of players. It's not enough with the mirror. And look the young that's funny for chubby. He's the only forward available for the next game in Majorca. The only one this player that is not counting on him. So of course they are trying to sell MTT and continue in the deal with usman the letter to try to have his renewal. It's really an electrical moment. So maybe they don't have to pay his way just, but it's not a desirable situation either for Barcelona because they wanted to try to make some at least to keep the player or try to make some business and it's really looking quite that right now. Well, gab did mention sergino dest who doesn't seem to be in the plans of shabby. So his futures uncertain there with Barcelona, but if his agent is to believe, he is actually wanted by buying now we know how the two compare particularly this season Barcelona not at bayan's level. So gab is Chevy missing something here or.

"These clubs that have eczema plays out in law and fantastic academy players coming through. I know it's not ideal. It's not an ideal scenario. We live in and haven't done for 18 months to two years. But we're all getting a better second time. I think Sean Daesh bodily manager touched when people were talking about the welfare. Premier League players, the welfare of these players has never been better looked after. They have absolutely everything. Okay, they may play a little bit too many games sometimes for everybody's liking, but that's a scenario that we live in. And quite frankly, that's complaining from turkle and Klopp and others Brendan Rodgers was involved and there had been more. It's just no falling on deaf ears. The sympathy train has gone. It has gone. There's a lot of people worse off than Thomas Tuchel and some of these top managers, young. Yeah, and I just think that it's a fair point. I think that now it's getting a bit too close at something or says something about users say haven't they said that just two or three days ago at the same press conference, I think you now have to get on with it. We know that now it's COVID, check. We know we have injured players check. You have only three subs, check, lead copies coming up. Lead cup is still here. And let's put we can talk about players welfare, maybe they're playing too many games, but we just have to find the right forum to discuss that. And that is after the season when December representatives to all these hearing, all these meetings, they have between the season. I think now say it once and then shut up. A few minutes. If you looked at Chelsea's Ben, yesterday, and that seems like a struggle. Hey, I mean, it was yeah, they picked up injuries in the game and she was a challenge. The injury was a challenge. It wasn't a consequence. I don't imagine of playing too many games. And so it's no hard to swallow that some of these teams and by the way, the drop points are home in bondly after dominating the game. Man united the bachelor was the boys were saying yesterday. A no brainer who are a good side, by the way. Good side Brighton. Take the electrode, but Chelsea didn't kill the game off. With good players on the field. So this is not why they are dropping off. They're not dropping off the title risk here because of COVID or injuries that dropping off because they're form has dropped off. There's no doubt about that. They're not taking the pressure off his players a little bit though with a comment like this. As we keep seeing, you give players an excuse to lose games or to drop points in this case against 9 times ten that they're going to take it. And I'm with the boys on this. I really don't get the constant complaining when you're a club like Chelsea up against in this instance Brighton. And you look at everybody else in the league, all struggling with the same COVID or struggle with injuries or struggling with the number of games as a matter of fact you could make the argument that the smaller clubs lower down the league who don't or can't afford the luxury of private air travel to some of the other games out. They already have a disadvantage. So we have three weeks out from job, which is just about three weeks old from the last Champions League games. So for those clubs that are competing in that computation, this fixture schedule right now is not their concern or certainly not an excuse for anything that they may feel. So is he ruled himself? Is that what he's doing then? Because who's fault is it that this is happening? It's something that's happened into every club, or is he just saying, okay, that's it. Arsenal had COVID cases at the beginning of the season. And and they dropped. And again, and we made a play. And they played. And I said to me, have complained, but they got on with it. And now they're having their best spell. I know everybody else is having that same tune to complete. And one game's called off for a similar situation, arsenal struggled with at the start of the season. I really, I'm with everybody on this. I have no sympathy for especially those bigger clubs and their complaints. When you look at their squads, and I'm not buying into it. But having said okay, I just think that I think it would listen to a club or a total when they say it once. So ragnarok, that he wouldn't be sadly been a two minutes and he talked about take the lead cup away. But fair enough, let them have them say, and then get on with it. I think that as many times you do this at press conference or after games or whatever you do it, it's start getting into an excuse. And I think that there are two ways and two intelligent to keep that going. I think there's time now to stop, get on with it and just take it from there. Because now when I heard chocolate again and when you put this statement out from him, again, I thought, wasn't that last week? Oh, was it yesterday again? So I think Tuco there will be people telling me now to just get on with it. I win some football games because now slowly it turned into excuses. Well, many teams are having to get on with it. We'll be talking about the current situation. Every single day here on ESPN FC be sure to always catch us. At transfer talk over on ESPN dot com, make sure to.

"With all the contacts, I want you to go back and give my example for my own playing these. When I was at Newcastle, let's Ferdinand results. When we scientist Priya, he was asked by a journalist, did Kevin Keegan seek your opinion before signing Tino or Priya? And he said, no, he doesn't have to, he's a manager. Headlining the tabloid media. Kevin Keegan did not see my approval. My approval society was pretty. That's exactly what he said. To the tabloid media, that is exactly what he said. But without the context, it is far more egregious than what we're actually in that interview. So my point is, whether he's misquoted or not, without the context, the tabloid media and we all know it, we've all been victims of it. The tabloid media could turn this to any story. We've seen maybe something wrong that was taken, not too far. It should not have been said. Three, not just one thing. But to gauge point, if he says, if he says, no tuka's gone with a different system. And the team's winning. And I'm not playing. I'm not happy I'm not playing, but it is what it is. I'm just all I'm seeing is if that is a context that he delivered this. Now, I don't speak Italian. Romelu Lukaku's first language is an Italian, but that is just that he's trying to get across. Then, if they put that too close going with the different system, and I'm happy why that may not be strictly misquoting him, it is totally against. I don't think that's, I don't think everybody's got to survive this, right? Right, no question. It's not life or death, yes. However, I don't think that's the problematic little piece that's been taken out. I think it's to talk about gone back to Italy. Because what we have and even if he says, well, it's three years for you. Whatever it is, but the problem is, it tells you in a rut, at the moment, the falling off the pace, they've got Liverpool anesthetic coming up and Tottenham in the League Cup two games and then braking away. It's a tough run, right? He has done what he has done at a time when chuckle needs everybody on board. He's put it out there. Actually, you know, quite fancy being somewhere else. No, it's made a rod for his own back because they struggle and he doesn't score goals is going to be 40,000 Chelsea finds. I bet the context of an agreed. But not that I'm Melo Lukaku's defense lawyer, and he certainly doesn't need me to defend him. But if the question is from a jealous, wouldn't you love to come back to Italy? And he's like, yeah, they loved it here. Into his grid. Again,.

"28. But it's been a year or two down the line. I think it's silly. I would just want to say that we can sit in different places around the world and if he's stupid or not stupid, if his comments are stupid or not comment, but what I will say, gab, I think that the timing of dreadful. I mean, it's a time with Chelsea's struggling and you may say that he did that two, three weeks ago, but there's no way Lukaku would have not accepted that it comes on now. That is .1. I spoke to the Belgian friend of mine who is a journalist who follow Lukaku. And I said, what's your take on this? And he said, he talks too much. And I think that is just, and that, I agree, it will still be the why should he talk? Now why don't they just shut up and score goals? And I always say that I'm not saying that I've been a disrespect to a player, but because we don't want boring players, but I think it's timing on this statement was terrible. All he's done here is pay a more pressure on himself because what happens? I agree with you there, Craig. All I would say is, it's a half hour interview. We've seen three minutes and 11 seconds of it. The rest of it airs tomorrow here in Europe. I kind of want to see what the broader context is before I go and I make up my mind about what Lukaku was or wasn't trying to do whether he was being stupid or whether he was being devious. And Jan as far as this interview airing without Lukaku's permission or Lukaku's agent's permission, I wouldn't be entirely sure that that's the case. I know ESPN is a network. We don't grant copy approval to people we interview. I certainly don't give copy approval. And I'm pretty sure sky Italia wouldn't either. But if you, if you had to go at your boss at ESPN, I mean, you would have thought of it. When shall I do it? Because they can just talk about their bosses like they won't, can't they? So we can't really compare with the ESPN employee. I don't understand why we keep repeating. He's having a go at Tuco. Did he say two goes weird looking to hold bad to a whole place bad football? What's his claim for Trump? He simply said two horse going with a different setup. Which I take to mean he's playing different players and he's not playing me. And I got to change his and I got to go and change his mind. I got to work harder and be professional. Do you think Tucker comes into the dressing room tomorrow and says, yes, we have 7 COVID. We have 8 injuries. Thank you, Lukaku, for taking off the pressure of them. Do you think you like it? Well, I could care. That's what tool likes or not, but what he said to me. Before the injuries was the fact that he wasn't playing. He said, hey, look, you're the most expensive player in the club's history. You're not getting a game. And he says, are you okay with that? And he says, no, I'm not happy with the situation. I'm not starting. He's making different choices. I got to go convince him to put me back into the site. That's how I understood it. Again, when we see the rest of the interview, maybe the context will be different. Well, I think it's important that we do get that context. We have to get that context to garb's point because we've all, we've all been misquoted by misquoted. For instance,.

"Italian newspaper. And you take snippets out of it. And it makes good tabloid photo. And that's what it is. Where we can't blame the media for this one shotgun. I think that there's something lost in translation. I mean, that is the way you kind of talk and everything. But this is not to show loyalty to Chelsea football club. And yes, this could be made a couple of three weeks ago and maybe they have talked it out later and he's back in the team and he's doing a job for his team again, but Skye Italy will never put this on without his acceptance. So I don't like this. I think that is a stupid thing to say. And I don't think that's what you should say in a lot of games coming up on a Chelsea struggling a bit. It's not what I need. And I think the loyalty has to go both ways. Not only from club to player also for player to club sometimes. The cab? I mean, look, I don't think we can have it both ways. I don't think we can have a situation where we want players to be honest and not give blind post match quotes and blind interviews. Or whether you want people to be honest. If I were a Chelsea fan, I wouldn't want Lukaku to say, oh, look, I'm back from injury. I'm training. I'm working hard. I always come off the bench because he plays other guys, but I'm happy with that. That's fine, because I get paid a ton of money. Now, of course, he's not going to be happy the situation. You're right. The translation that the word used in Italian, you can translate a system. You can also translate it as a setup. Maybe he was referring to the personnel. Needless to say Italian isn't his mother tongue either. But I think even people who don't like Lukaku would tend to agree that whatever else he is, he's not stupid. This is a very, very bright guy. When somebody goes and does something like this, you have to ask yourself, is he being devious? Is he trying to engineer something? And there is no way inter can afford him. There is no way he's going back to injure. It's just not happening. Certainly not happening now. He's talking about some point in the future. He'd love to go back because he had a great time in my life. But he knows it's not going to be now because the club don't have any money. So certainly that's how I read it. I already just saying, look, I'm not getting in the team. I obviously have to convince Tuco to let me start from the beginning. Maybe he thinks I get injured, maybe whatever his reasons are, maybe like furniture and Harvard's better. I got to get back in there. And, you know, the game he started against Brighton. That was his first Premier League start since the beginning of October. So listen, there's two things go. He's clearly.

"And I can't give up now. God marcotti is joining us now to talk more about this. This is Romelu Lukaku also on returning to inter from the same interview, he said, I've always said that I have entered in my heart. I know I'll return to winter. I really hope from the bottom of my heart so we're trying to enter not at the end of my career, but when I'm still at the top level to win more together. Now given the situation that's going on at Chelsea at the moment, you can understand why there's been a bit of upset. So gab first of all, the translation is accurate from what Lukaku said, right? So this is part of a longer interview. They've only aired clips of it. The translation is accurate, but I think if you look at the context of it and the way it sounds Italian, which is what he was speaking, it comes across a little bit different. It comes across as somebody who had been fit back fit for a number of games. Hadn't started any Premier League games since his return. And he's basically saying, look, I'm not getting into the side. They go just playing a different system. I'm not happy with it. I want to start. I'm going to keep being professional and working harder. I genuinely don't think he meant anything more than that. And certainly not, if this is going to be your next question, whether he's trying to engineer some kind of return to injure, because I think he knows very well. What the situation is at inter and that right now, that's entirely untenable. But a Chelsea fan doesn't want to hear that surely from Romelu Lukaku about this player wanting to return to winter not right now anyway. But he was at the team with injury. Then he had to learn he had a COVID he was infected with COVID. He had the protocols of that. I don't really, I'm not a 100% sure what he's talking about with systems because it's been pretty much put in the same way, but you had different personality. And I thought it was more of a case of protecting Lukaku a little bit in terms of the long season, the injury, had him on the bench. So I don't quite know the system scenario. What he was talking about because Tommy struggles pretty much played the same way since he's been at Chelsea. It's kind of brilliant. It's some really brainless things to see. He's spoken about him positively since, but does it matter when these quotes came out? Whenever you get pulled up when you've slaughtered somebody, then you will start to spin it the other way and say, well, it didn't mean I didn't mean that. He's basically criticized the manager saying that what he told them is not true. It doesn't like the way they play. I mean, who says that to the manager? And by the way, my heart is still an inter. That's exactly, as you said, what the funds weren't here. I mean, it's can a brainless comment, isn't it? If you're a choice, if I'm doing what you want to hear, but it no longer as I read that, that's exactly what I thought. But gapping it into a different context, I think a slightly different picture that you have to that you have to appreciate. But knowing the British media, particularly the tabloid media, they are going to go to tone with this and all of a sudden, Lukaku is going to have to be defended. But yes, but he's doing it and interviewing Italian with an.

"They can get this. And in the next 7 or 8 games, they're not playing the best of a decision before they have a local garb against my city. So I still run Ralph Ragnar will have the opposition, but his problem is that he has to practice in games. And that is not the full strength of a Ralph Riley. He loves to work with the players on the training pitch and when you take over a team just before Christmas, you don't get that time. But I just want to end on that one that after all again I went, they have no 8 games without a loss, but I don't think the way they're playing has changed so much. I think this is more or less the same answers united that we've seen all season. How much can you take away then from what it is or do you look at it and say, okay, you've ended 2021 on a high, you can progress forward and this is a good way to do so into the new year. I mean, I don't really know what we're going to take away. I mean, what we're taking away is there's going to be a lot of still going to have to be a lot of changes at man united for them to reach the levels that Liverpool and SETI in particular have reached. The longer Ralph rannie extend when they start to play better teams will make a better gauge. But they just needed to get a win because we've had a week where they played horribly at Newcastle. Should have been beaten probably. There have been leaks to the press about training methods and all that sort of stuff we talked about in yesterday's show. So he could have el afforded to have another bad result against a team who are struggling and bundling when this season. So it was just about winning wiping the slate clean for 2022 and then start again, but nothing changes to yesterday. Anybody who doesn't want to pull away and that squad, he's going to have to figure it out quickly. And to be fair, it looks to me as if I don't think he's making those decisions. And quite frankly, Brennan Fernandez doesn't play a bit like Paul Pogba and the one in so be it. So be it. They've got younger fresher legs. Sancho needs a running games. You're going to get the best out of them. It needs a running games. And we're not Greenwood's a talented player. And at least Cavani helpful with Ronaldo. It's not like there's two old guys up front because yeah, technically there is, but Cavani watts hard. And he'll run around and he's a goal scorer. So maybe that's for a run. I don't take too much out of Manchester United Burnley any time. Any season under any manager. This just feels a whole lot bigger because of that Newcastle results and because of Norris before them. So now they play the three teams at the bottom three in succession. And this one felt or at least a performance felt more than it should be because of because of those struggles before. Rania because as Jan's point, no, no, I said coach in game. And they have a great run of games between no one and the city game. The only real test here and I were looking at the schedule is west down. You compare that to us and ask us next game is home to city. And then there we just put it in North London Derby. That could all of a sudden change everything about how that top four come top 7 looks. And Manchester United may be sitting forth and feeling a lot better than maybe some of their football deserves. But between now and march, you've got two full months of games that testing, but very winnable, to get this right, because despite the results against Burnley, it's brilliant. I think one of the worries I would have for them is the cornerstone of this team this season was supposed to be the varan Maguire partnership. That was where it was going to start. Varan has had a lot of injuries and doesn't look right. And if I was a united fund, I'd worry about Harry Maguire. He's confidence he's form he looks hesitant to me. And even Chris Wood it's time to just Bosh in him around the field. So that's a concern for me that area. And I think that. When you look at that, that basically tells you you've got a place to defensive midfielders in front of back lane. Because it is suspect, which completely changes what you're doing with the lakes of Bruno Fernandes, because if you gamble and play him, then it's another problem defensively. So you have to strike a balance, because you certainly can't believe one in front of that bike for. On this one, then Yan. Now just thinking of the things that ragnarok has pointed out in the media, he's very open in his press conference. He talks about everything. That is the right Nick way. He likes to be open about everything. And I think that you saw some of that, that body language was a lot much better today. You saw the players coming out of the tun, talking to each other, talking about, at least tries to show that we want this Manchester United team to win. And people could say that, well, they should. Their Manchester United, they haven't been to Manchester United and there was a lot of focus today on Sir Alex Ferguson and having his 80th birthday tomorrow. And if they're going to be at least a bit close to us or Alex was, they have to at least have those kind of things and show them in Premier League games. All right, well, let's move on to talk about Lukaku. Romelu Lukaku's latest quotes about his current situation at Chelsea. It must be said these are a few weeks ago and they were said to Sky Sports Italia physically. I'm fine, he says, but I'm not happy with the situation at Chelsea. Tuco is choosing to play with another system. I won't give up. I'll be professional. I am not happy with the situation, but I am professional and I can't give up now. God marcotti is joining us now to talk more about this. This is Romelu Lukaku also on returning to inter from the.

"An awful lot. If anything, McDonald's given them a problem. Because mctominay looked good, Hennessy had three incredible sheaves from them. And so that kind of says, well, hold on a second. If we've got Fernandez, push and forward from the middle of the park. Is he better than McDonald? Because I don't remember the last time Fernandez was having shots at gold like that. So you may have actually asked the question as opposed to getting some answers here because there's no way Martin is going to be the man setting in front of the bike Ford either. I think he's challenged with including Bruno Fernandes is having him operate from a wide area in an attacking sense. And then asking him to defend. Neither of those are really where he's at his best, but this is running food formation. This four two two. And it doesn't suit Bruno Fernandes is skill set. So especially if you want to play the tool front and especially if it's Ronaldo and Cavani, where do you get the best out of Bruno Fernandez? And that's the challenge. It's not about the player, but more the formation. Did you notice any slight changes in the formation today? No, not so much in the formation, but I think with Craig saying that they had to win a football game, but it's quite interesting overall fragment. He comes with a brand of this tactical professor doing all that kind of formation change and everything. But the main thing that he's talked about now is body language and after the Newcastle game and he said the intensity. And today after the game, we talk about the second ball. So is nothing to do with the Ralph Ragnar. We know what gig impressing him. They have to finish and get the ball in 8 or was it ten seconds and all that kind of stuff. So I think that would take time, having said that, if you look at the table now, they are four points away and one game in hand are the fourth place, which is, I think maximum where.

"Scotland this time he's always on his travels. Welcome into the show. Yeah, I'm great to see you. Let's get started then with that comment then click is it the best I've seen before today when I walked in the studio by the reality Shaq and I thought Stevie's your shacks you. Together, it seems like a long time, but I think his baby steps are man united and by that I mean they just need to get any kind of good positive results at the moment. Let's add a better context. It was better, but they've played the two teams two of the wash teams in the division and Newcastle and Bonnie. But it's called goals. They were still a little open for me, defensively, particularly in the first half. One is big problem as they don't score goals. It was actually quite weird because their huge problem has been scoring goals, but they're normally solid defensively. And actually they look like a threat going forward, but they were all over the parish defensively. So it was a strange performance from them. But in terms of united and made some changes, some were forced some were not, which is what we talked about big decisions have to be made. And we got some goals at home. So that is a positive bot. The context says it was two games against a Newcastle. But I went to one at the moment. Is there a case to be made that Bruno Fernandez not in this team could make them good not in the starting lineup actually is a better Manchester United? How can you not read too? I don't think you can read into what we saw today. I would suggest there would be definitely for and maybe 5. If man united had a real game tomorrow, he would make at least four or 5 changes to the team that played today. So I'm going to assure that you really learn.

The manager doesn't i really don't think he does the supporters also just like West ham they're going to be back in james's park and they despise steve brooks This is a team that can turn heads all right but they pay dr football on. It's not always winning football. And the problem i think for me i look at them and i think they're fine but i don't think they're bad i don't think they're good. They're fine The only now the one thing they do have for me is potentially the biggest x. factor in the league like i remember the things that i said last year about a domitory wolves about his potential to be the x factor for them like that. If he's something special than they'll be they could be better than whatever we thought. i think. I have a similar feeling about allen sent maximum this year right now. He's gotta stay there. There's been rumblings that he's not happy. Apparently he wanted joe wheelock and if that moved becomes official than that could go a long way and making him happy.

Because he's he's different. He's different than whatever you think of. A steve bruce team to be if he's allowed to play that way then i think he could be a lot of fun and maybe carry them a little bit. Maybe a couple of places higher than whatever we look at them as right now fundamentally agree with you but i don't think it's going to happen because they need to change manager that's my view and it's view that a voice to his son. Alex bruce on twitter in a conversation that descended rapidly andrew people when when was this So i- steve. I think our alex now. Alex tweeted a something that was written By steve bruce. All about steve bruce by journalists and it was it was information by the way that had been gleaned from the training ground like the journalists. Didn't make it up and alex.

But attacking journalism isn't the way to go or whatever and then addicts. Bruce responded to me and we had a bit of a back and forth but Yeah he's he's always going to bat for his dad against journalism which one okay with the first part of that i think yeah any self-respect person will go to bat for their dad I don't know. I have to take sides. I wanna see this conversation. I'll i i've gotta dig out From the archives boy has a fascinating history with newcastle and their managers are really do.

Epl back more bass going to have to do you. Guys nuri yank The noor yank gets in contact with us. Thoughts on this lads. I don't understand what chelsea are such favorites. Now are people sleeping on. Nfc the team is back to full strength.

I think you're mainly third and fourth and Nor yank has taken exception to this so let me just As well as attacks on a couple levels like first of all You know why. The reigning european champions who in the last twelve months spent three hundred million on europe's best talent and have one of europe's more astute managers in charge our favorites for some people chelsea are not a weird pick to be favorites for the league. Okay and they may not win the league at all but as we sit here in early august before a ball has been kicked it is not impossible to see why some pundits with tip them for the title. I say this is liverpool fat. I don't think people realize as well. How much pundits hit preseason predictions and honestly there are mostly box. Anyway you're guessing nine months ahead in a sporting competition with the best knowledge available to you. The transfer window is still open for other two and a half weeks right like even the teams are. It's it's such a good point By the way andrew last christmas even within a season. You don't know what's going to happen last christmas. December nineteen liverpool hammered crystal palace. I'm went five points clear right and you text me you said. I think that's that they could win it by ten and look at the way things happened after that. So i stand by by the way Also i just never pulled back to full strength. I would argue that a little bit. Apart from the fact robertson is just got injured in his out for few weeks with an ankle injury. There are some unknowns right. So verdict van dyke is coming back from the acl. We know that isn't always straightforward. Linear thing. there's often complications on the way. Hopefully there won't be but you can pick up niggling injuries. I midfield without genie win album.

And for some people including jimmy car- those doubts are enough to say that liverpool won't win the league komai. That's that's okay like we should be getting upset about that. They're fascinating to me coming into the season liverpool because the van dyke thing is so interesting because like you say on paper.

They fell off a cliff but remember this. They got guys back they rebounded. And how did they finish the year. The last ten games it took twenty six out of thirty points so like it was really just one stretch of last season that undid whatever potential they had to go on title. A bit of south sabotaged tinkering with the midfield. When you should have just trusted whatever centreback hat but here's the thing though here one of the reasons why i still feel good about liverpool for whatever struggles. They went through last season. Jj one thing that we never said about them was that they were playing poorly. Does that make sense. Like i feel like oftentimes results were.

I haven't remind myself that you guys one champions league last year i don't i don't i have to keep reminding myself offices around it back Let's see other questions. We got here way too early prediction for. Epl one's twenty p nudes. Yuckiness get along. That's gonna that's gonna be a next week. So the pre pre predictions which by the way we have to qualify it next week by saying like transfer window is not going to be closed so keep in mind that some big things could still happen as the game in kaku Let's see what else thoughts a move with Bubba how will watch for do the. Oh we gotta ornstein Or insane here I will laugher do the season sam. A call six s in batman or foster at goalkeeper. One first of all. I don't know how offers i really hope that. They can recreate that magic that they had two to three years ago. But i will say i mean they. They had they had so many players That were sort hungary and underrated than than Routine as well you know. Troy deeney was sort of the leader of the clubhouse tim. He's obviously he's still there obvious. Couple years older. I don't know we'll see. Is dental failures not still. I don't think so. And he was one of the guys. I was thinking of your. He was he was a guy that like just didn't workout at everton. People sort of given up on him and he came in. He was like a baller he was. He was great for them. I know he's a he's met with the In with him yes. But as far as goalkeeper. It's absolutely bucket. Like foster is foster. The focusing on biking and i'ma foster though he's a great guy he's a great guy. I mean the namedrop like we used one of the guys. I went out drinking after the ethic of vital years ago and He was really cool. Guy like a really nice guy. Down earth But he's old and he's just Young he's hungry just played well for austria. He's he's the man for wasser going forward. No question about it Last question i'm primarily ufl championship. Bridget's ho boy. People really a really testing are a knowledge here. I like i guess i would save born. miss number. One is a team that i really liked. Fulham is easy to say full. May i like them right. It's it's like they've just bounced back and forth like norwich kinda kinda deal. Who's the team that i wanted to see. Last was that you probably wanted to see barnsley last year. Yeah that's right but he gives there so no longer them Darby counties swansea was the mixed last season. I love when when teams like leagues. Wolves come up and they kind of kill Finish midtable i. I'd like to see another one of those like traditional english teams like a four or is it just like would love to see them back into print and that would be awesome. That'd be cool. Or get one of the carter for swansea one of the wales team. That might be good. To make it the the british criminally yet really testing our our brains there Listen to the grab bag questions from round. Wyatt how down bad or mexican. Fans right now redound. You'd like so they. They got bounced from the olympics. Well not fully Us flavor bronze-medal. Game that they lost in the sun penalties brazil just this week. They actually lost the us twice in finals. This summer I was actually just a talking to a beach. Soccer player in mexico lost the us in beach. Soccer in the world cup qualifying. So i mean just catch it from all angles right now Really feel hate to see that. It's tough it's really tough I worked at speaking as a neutral van. Which only pretend like i can. I can do this. But like i think that they should stick by martino. It sounds like there's a lot of people were like todd ago. They kind of have a little patience. Gold they just go through managers to name quickly got to give him some time to figure it out. I hope they fire as a us fan. But i think for their sake bishop prostate stick with a little bit As i said these are going to be some random questions so Airy one how can mls make four sports cities into five or cities for castle fits question he gets to the gets to the heart of his mls gonna put itself at the table with the big four right. I mean.
