Things may go to into front as we got to the grade. Mostly the to stage the Newcastle Us maybe making baby steps in changing things. I'm the late sauce. The first thing I want to do is is basically say what a good job he's done and our hold my hand up. Royal Wave of many podcasts. Preseason look forward to the season I do customer not going down getting relegated. I just couldn't see how this squad with a manager. The was has blown hot and cold before and his managerial jobs.

Okay Your Phrase Rob. Your your manager. It doesn't want to be a fan. Asia is going to be. It's going to be determined. He makes a decision even though he is love loved his heart. GonNa put them in different directions. So just wanted to get out straightaway. What a good job rob. What's a good job? He's done with an average plays we'll get into is just with a potential takeover. Nobody's job of that. Club is GonNa be guaranteed now when you say what? A good job isn't the job to be a new customer. Aside many people did number going down with album on the adjuncts allegation. The templates on Monday uniting fits only of fullness lead just going to be a the job. He's doing a good job. Not a lot of money will plant woops assist them but he took the job of what was the timeframe rob wash wash. Your timeframe is if we get the cove it net by the saw next. He's not on. Thanks Steve This will be the ninety nine. I agree with you rob but I don't know if it's quite as clear cut as that you know I listen. I agree with you and that would be my percentages that side of it but he has a good job we know he loves the club. You know. I'm sure you'd like to change the way that they play a little bit. I just wonder if I I don't know. Get a start of a season and then the venue into if you don't like how it's going finding a new manager to replace him. The middle of season is incredibly difficult. We know that Michio poetry is cost. Monitor this available right now. I'm agreeing with you rob I just. I wouldn't be totally surprised if he does. Stop next season. But but we'll say because the likely it is if a takeover happens still still question marks by that by the way even the is a few legal ramifications or some piracy stuff is coming up the the my stop it but but you probably right if they probably will go in if all goes through with it with a new Gotha and plenty new place just want to talk about Kabila a squad key players who will be known to to just before we owns the league and detail. Miguel marrone During the football club Seen him he Ronson Play while when you how he would be didn't school people saying what's Essential Billy. He was one of those. A bright candidate trump runtime for just starting to show some of the signs. We've seen him in in major league. Soccer is one of them where it hasn't been great but yet you see enough. I'm sure the manager sees in his teammates. Nothing trading to know that he complains. He's got great energy very very quick. Good scale I think everybody probably hitting south would agree that in in critical moments probably Russia's things as a hundred million miles an hour while he needs to learn compose himself me sang other rudy. Great plans said that he's like a chicken with his head cough. Sometimes that's GONNA to improve to his appearances this season but he can play and Steve Bruce. Way talked about him. You could see that he feels for him and he thinks he's going to be important part of trump and I do is going to be a situation where he hasn't done. His scored a couple of hours in two thousand eight hundred twenty appearances and he's going to drift drift out of the club. I believe that he is going to be a part of the transition. He's good enough. In my opinion rob to stay with the majority plays that will come in this next phase of new dishes. There's not going to go straight from united to to a team Philippe superstar players. That will be some progressions that we've seen all other teams of new ownership on but he's good enough.

Saudi Aramco Target Valuation Falls Short
"This. The Saudi Arabia state oil giant whose path to public markets has been filled with twists and turns. It still expected to list its shares in December. But now we're reporting that Aramco. Mm Co is considering evaluation of up to one point seven trillion dollars. That might sound like a lot of money but actually falls short of what Saudi Arabia's Prince Muhammad bin Salman had been hoping for. Ben Dumont is in London so Ben Walk me through this valuation. Why did Aramco decide to go? With the lower. Our end of the spectrum the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia he was targeting a valuation of two trillion but based on the price price range. That was released over the weekend. They're targeting now a range of Valuation of between one point six one point seven billion a trillion. Sorry sorry that's That's quite a big number. Obviously but it falls well short of what the Crown Prince wonted Part of that reflects the fact that institutional investors still think at that level that Valuation Company is still too expensive they were they were interested in evaluation of one to one point five trillion. At that point you would have expected a lot of international interest but the crown prince now is kind of a tough spot where he's GonNa have to rely a lot more on local Saudi investors To make to make this. IPO success success but this is accompanied. It's more profitable than apple. Why is this valuation coming in less than expected? What are investors worried about the worried about a a lot of political and economic risk? That's attached to Aramco even though it's the most profitable company in the world its earnings are tied to the oil price so so they can be very. The earning can be very volatile for example in the third quarter profits were down eighteen percent year over year to reflect the the Laurel braces uses and the risks are compounded by the political risks. That come with Aramco you know There was the attacks on their oil L. facilities and in September and that sort of reminded investors that investing in Aramco means. You're exposing yourself to a lot of political risk geopolitical Chris that you wouldn't say if you bought shares an excellent or or Chevron so this valuation of one point six to one point seven trillion. I mean that would mean means that they'd float around twenty five billion dollars so would it lose this world's Most Valuable IPO title that we've been tossing about for what feels like years now. It could. It could if it's if it's priced at the mid range of the valuation then the size of the actual IPO would fall just below just shy of twenty five billion which is sort of the threshold for the biggest set in two thousand fourteen by Alibaba Alibaba. So it's a big it always a blow to the economy because the reason they're doing Saudi Arabia's doing this IPO is to raise money to diversifies Konami way from oil same time. There's a lot of eagle behind This idea of being the biggest IPO IPO ever carrying off the biggest IPO. Ever and so far that that's at risk. And what does Aramco have to say about all of this. Well they've been in fairly. They've been silent. I mean I see the mark. The rules around marketing and I appeal restricted company in terms of what they can say publicly glee. They've issued their the target price range. They've they've come out and said we're we're committed to a growing dividend to try and make it more attractive They've launch a major marketing campaign in Saudi Arabia to to get to drum up local interest. they're getting the banks there to provide loans to two locals to buy the shares but one telling thing about the disappointment. That Aramco's feeling is over. This process is is the fact that Aramco is not going to adopt the rules required for them to market the offering over over the next two weeks to US

Prince on tour: Muhammad bin Salman
"Saudi Crown prince Mohammad bin Salman is pivoting eastward this week. He's on a tour of Asia. Believe that San gonna be very very important country in the coming, and you want to be sure that part of that with stops in Pakistan, India and China the trip is a strategically important one for the prince he has had a very rocky six months. He's been accused of ordering the murder of dissident journalist, Joel shalt g in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul is father death has rocked relations between the west and Saudi Arabia. So this tour is a way of cleansing away some of the diplomatic opprobrium that is taxed to him in the west to Sean Joshi is our defense editor he is looking for friends who will happen focus on other more harmonious matters in Pakistan. He has a very pliant friend. But also India and China who will not obsess over Saudi Arabia's human rights record and will deal with him on more pragmatic basis, which is to say, they can talk oil. They can talk not just Oriel. Other types of investment regional security counter terrorism with India, particularly keen to get Saudi help on chasing up Pakistani wrongdoers, and they can talk missiles and strategic weapons with China. But in that region there is quite a lot going on. Let's take those sort of destinations one by one. He's already been to Pakistan. What are his ambitions? And what are the issues there? Well, Saudi Arabia and Pakistan have historically been extremely close part of it for Pakistan is money. They are being squeezed towards the IMF for a bailout and Saudi Arabia has just agreed twenty billion dollars of investment agreements. Pakistan, also sends troops to Saudi Arabia to train with the Saudis. It has contributed forces to the campaign in Yemen. But of course, Pakistan, also neighbors Iran, which you Saudi Arabia's arch rival, so there's a lot more going on in terms of also containing Iran's influence, so what exactly was he trying to secure in Pakistan, one of the most important projects. He's looking at is. Funding a big oil refinery in the port of guava in Pakistan's Balochistan province, and that's important for a number of reasons right now, it's the centerpiece of China's economic corridor in Pakistan, so he's competing with Beijing. It's very near the Iranian port of Chabahar where India is investing. So he's competing with deady, but more importantly than all of that, Balochistan neighbors Iran, and so he is building a presence right next door to Iranian territory. There have been rumors that Saudi Arabia has funded groups in Balochistan, which is where gutter is located that have conducted attacks inside, Iran. So I think this is likely to be another step in the Saudi campaign to push back at Iran. I suppose I'm wondering why this visit might be so welcome on the part of all of these countries. If what he's doing his tipping into some pretty tricky, local dynamics kind of on all fronts in in every direction. Why isn't he viewed as kind of a destabilizing force? Well, I think the Indians will call. Where he is. Now, they historically might have seen Saudi Arabia as a stabilizing force supporting radical Islamist movements that were causing trouble in places like Kashmir and other parts of India. But in recent years, India has tried to reset its relationship with Saudi Arabia. It wants Saudi investment and it wants to coke Saudi Arabia away from Pakistan and officials in New Delhi or still reeling from last week's terror attack in Indian-administered Kashmir, which it blamed on Pakistan. Isn't that sort of complicating the dynamics I think it probably is. I think that India is focused on this terrible attack that took place the worst attack in Kashmir in decades, and this profound anger in India and desire among many people to take some sort of retaliatory military action now Mohammed bin Salman presence in Pakistan, first of all and then his visit to India has complicated that for the Indians. But I think what they will be doing is using the opportunity to try and say to him look, we know your close to package. Stan we know you'll building a relationship, but we are a bigger more important country. Don't you want to work with us and try and put pressure on the Pakistanis to end their support of terrorism? So quite the opposite. Then of everyone trying to shun him everyone instead wants his ear quite badly. I think that's right. I think that for the Chinese as well where he will be heading after India China will think well, here's an American ally. If we can give him weapons advanced technology, perhaps build economic ties his an opportunity to try and peel away another American ally and win one over the Americans. Do you suppose that this tour will accomplish its goal of kind of shaking off the shadow of the Jamaica Shoji affair, I think it will show the west that Saudi Arabia has other partners, and that will probably push some people to say, look, we can't stop talking about kashogi. But we have to be aware that Saudi Arabia is an important partner. Indeed, only in the last week British. Officials have been complaining that German arms export ban on Saudi Arabia has grounded its fleet of typhoon fighter jets. So people already worried that some of the pressure on Saudi Arabia is resulting in lost commercial opportunities and the more. He can show that he has friends in other parts of the world, even potential suppliers of arms, the more. He will be able to say to the west you better talk to me at some point. Because if not I will find other people to speak with and I'm also intimately involved in all of these other sort of cross border conflicts that you you might need my help with. We'll absolutely. And I think the biggest of all and the biggest prize here is the peace. Talks over ghanistan Saudi Arabia has had a relationship with Afghanistan's Pakistan is central to the process of the peace talks. And so if the west feels that Saudi Arabia could play an important role in cajoling Pakistan to push the Taliban to the table if it could coax the insurgent directly to the table then. That may be one more step on the road to rehabilitation for no had been solo.

The charges include excessive force obstruction of Justice and lying to a grand jury four officers have been suspended without pay the undercover detective was among hundreds of people arrested at downtown Saint Louis in September of last year.

If the law had been in place, the city would have had to say we can't sign a non disco. Agreement. So there's two choices.

There Trump's visit comes on the heels of a big development and special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation a guilty plea by his former attorney Michael Cohen, and what it revealed about Trump's efforts to land a business deal with Russia during the two thousand sixteen campaign NPR White House correspondent tamra Keith is traveling with the president and joins us now from when his IRAs their town. Hey, ATI sometimes when a president goes overseas. The White House is trying to leave all the domestic troubles behind is that the case this time, the answer would seem to be no. And and the reason I say that is that President Trump was supposed to have a meeting here with Russian President Vladimir Putin, he abruptly cancelled that on the way to Argentina via tweet saying it was because of Russian aggression against Ukraine, but then this afternoon there were. Reports of a possibly an informal meeting happening between Trump and Putin. Those reports were being pushed from Russia and the White House put out a sort of an odd statement referring to the Mueller investigation. Sarah Sanders sent this along she said the Russian witch-hunt hoax, which is hopefully now nearing an end is doing very well. Unfortunately, it probably does undermine our relationship with Russia, which was not entirely the answer to the question that we were asking another way that we know that the president's thinking about it is that he's been tweeting about it from here in Argentina a little while ago. Reporter's got to ask the president questions, and and one of the questions was about why he cancelled his meeting with Putin. He insisted it was because of Ukraine, hopefully, they'll be able to settle it out. Flowers amazing with president. The basis of what took place. With respect to the ships, sailors that was the. In the meantime, what else has been going on at the g twenty one big thing that happened today was before the g twenty started a signing ceremony at the president's hotel with the leaders of Canada and Mexico signing the US MCA that is the trade deal that will replace NAFTA. One interesting note is that during remarks, President Trump and president Pineyro of Mexico. It was his last day on the job both referred to it as the US MCA, which is the preferred title that President Trump likes, but prime minister Trudeau kept calling it new NAFTA, even though President Trump does not like the term NAFTA at all. But you know, this is a notable moment because this is a step in the process of President Trump, keeping a campaign promise that said congress and legislatures in Mexico and Canada still need to sign off on this on another subject. The Saudi Crown prince Mohammad bin Salman is there. He's of course, been under scrutiny since the killing of journalist Jamal kashogi has he actually interacted with President Trump yet. So a White House official says that they just exchanged pleasantries that there was no discussion. This comes in pretty big contrast with a video that's been circulating of Russian President Putin, and m Bs exchanging sort of an intricate high five that looked very celebratory the president is under some scrutiny about this because he has questioned the CIA assessment that NBS ordered the killing of Jamal kashogi. That's NPR's tamra Keith tamra. Thank you. You're welcome. And we're going to start right there with the g twenty talks in Argentina for our regular week in politics chat. We also need to take stock of another wild week in the Russia investigation. David Brooks of the New York Times is here in the studio as he often has on Friday, David with you and Susan Glasser. The New Yorker, welcome to you. Thanks so much. So President Trump signed this new NAFTA deal today, except as we just heard we're not supposed to call it NAFTA anymore. That's controversial. We are referring to the United States Mexico Canada agreement the US MCA, Scott, I'm tempted to call it also maybe prospects for a trade deal or some sort of agreement with China that may be coming together down at the g twenty Susan. Let me start with you does this count as progress in a year where we have spent a lot more time talking about trade wars than trade deals. Well, look, I think President Trump made a decision to sort of pull back from the brink and to declare victory with the reincarnated NAFTA. Whatever you wanna call it, most experts, and I'm not one on this subject. Do believe that it essentially is a reincarnated NAFTA that it builds on the foundation substantially of the original went and by the way, it's not attend deal. I should point out that there's going to be a real political fight. I think. Up here in Washington on Capitol Hill over approving this. So it's not over. Although President Trump was was taking it as a victory lap. Today was also strengthened by government coming in Mexico, which will inherit the steel by a president on his last day there. That's right. And and I thought you saw the lasting hard feelings as a result of these very tough negotiations with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau who did appear at the last minute was uncertain at the signing ceremony today in Buenos Aires. But had some strong words for President Trump, and you've had this amazing spectacle. What have we taken to get here of the United States going after candidate one of its closest allies, David your takeaway, so far from the g twenty well, so far the image of Muhammad bin Salman and Putin doing an end zone dance together is the big takeaway video circulating of them doing a hi fi. Looking very cheer an image. It's a symbol. It's a symbol of an era in which the wolves of the global international order are on the March and undeterred because there's no one. Deter them. And so that's one thing. The second thing I think is the China US relationship and this thank heaven is not a Trump related story to me the big change in US China relations is that we used to have people who were friends of China somewhere, foes of China and the foreign policy establishment sort of split. That's no longer the case. Now, everyone sees China as a challenge, but as a foe Hank pulse in the former treasury fare gave a speech in Singapore recently in which he laid that very clearly and he was very much in the camp. So when Trump talks tough on China trade, he now has a lot of people who are not normally his friends actually thinking he's doing the right thing me loop.
"muhammad bin salman" Discussed on Start Here
"And I want to quickly get some analysis from somebody who knows the stuff somebody who is usually in the field, but ABC senior foreign correspondent an panel is in New York right here Grigsby with you here in the flesh brass ho glide, your Lilla. Well, I know I'm glad you didn't. I'm glad you're here today of all days because you, and I had just been talking about whether mobile politics would in your words, Trump human rights in regard to Jamaica Shoji. Did you get your answer yesterday? Exactly. I think is exactly will you. And I were talking about what we predicted earlier this week is the the primacy and the president quite rightly of the trade deal, but also of the strategic relationship between the United States and Saudi Arabia is much more important. We also need a counterbalance and Israel each help. Also, if we abandoned Saudi Arabia would be a terrible mistake county about balancing will they see as the threat from Iran. The there. Number key countries in the region key allies, the United States remember during the Bush administration come to LIZA rice, referring to moderate friends in the Middle East. It's the same countries is Saudi Arabia. It's israel. It's Egypt is countries at the United States relies on not just for energy, not just for trade, but full security. Well, let me ask you about that idea that that if the US refuses to sell arms to Saudi Arabia that that money goes away, those jobs go away, they all goes to Russia, and China, we might not get such a sweet deal and oil anymore. Does that logic checkout? I think there's a bit of a leap to say, those those jobs, and those contracts are immediately going to go to Russia and China. I mean, the reason the the Saudi Arabia comes to the United States is because it won't specific weapons specific systems.
