European Giants Fall

"Welcome into the a good day for this show mutual actually a very bad day for me as well we're spending a sleepless in Seattle fun time yes one of the big clubs place for Barcelona Thirty Minute Antoine Nice run but his shot saved Brussel on tomato I didn't himself into attack down the left hand side we usually see George in that position is clearly apparent calf injury he's placed by Carlos Perez and things the defender does enough to put them off goalkeeper makes a safe sixtieth line than he's late coming over to the take the central position and by then then oh he loves scoring this goal I'm not sure that because he went to remedy free-kick pneumonia or find space and makes it three one and there is too late deflection of always gets three one to waiting for a response from Barcelona Ah Antoine Offside in the buildup and is correct call and Levante Barcelona dominating in all aspects wrong I left for Barcelona just when you thought that Barcelona they had coming into this game thought okay well versed on top of the table a there were hanging on against the team that they should be much better and I it just feels room and whatever may be going on behind the scenes at Barcelona Jost on the field and responsible for the left side of the attack who's that on is that or is that like certain Leonid messy has freedom to go wherever he wants to restore this is going to take a central Penn side but as we saw in the highlights the chance for until increasement from him but what happens consistently is that you have district guys within ten yards of each other I and even though that space is open Dawson really take that space natural because he doesn't that spacious open bowl gets played to him and now live onto slade shifting over okay so the Ryen side so you're limited underwrite you're limited on the left everything is down the middle and because by someone is trying to commit that Syrian committee numbers forward that they're not comfortable it's three one every bit of through when you think about the quality of opportunities came from Luanda took advantage of that Barcelona has better players than they've onto right we way from just the tactical issues that I just mentioned and going one way or a group of Larry's going one way and then and then by better this going a different in Barcelona and I think there's something to that because you don't always we're gonNA keep things in private but there are things going on here that we have to result and this would the players yet but I do think that their issues underlying in the connection or miss connection that when this team does not find with the left hand side with on the right hand side do wearing your button downs on talked and hoping for the best then stop it seriously the perfect length and were designed for guys of all shapes and sizes taller short slimmer athletic you're shorter find the style to match any wardrobe so whether you're shopping for the perfect gift for the man in Your Life Dot Com and don't forget to use Promo Code Zero S to save twenty percent on your first order at checkout who and Manchester City post win but both need late goals to do so Liverpool against Villa Newcastle Sheffield United Right and let's start with the Liverpool victory over Aston Villa arrest him they did and how they they seem to need him and they needed this team that is having a difficult struggles trying to put other teams away against thirteen th they still have a game on Sunday city beating Southampton the city well if you give teams a sign of life a recent for hope hung on a song as they bid but in the end mine does the city was two good Kyle Walker the game theft the OLA talking about Saudi Oman and maybe throwing some flames into the fire ahead coming here isn't it yes it is and when he saying he's a talent as the over the last week or so it is also a very clear message is a clear I will go down easily this guy's looking to draw fouls he's an incredible and then people are going to be paying attention to Monday strana drove follows trying to dive he's any sense that either or both looking ahead it's not so much that they're looking enable to do that people will point that and say well they're destined to win the title this they're a good team liberal as solid as they are are they having to chase the too many times this year we have seen Manchester City gift live two teams that should not have a couple of things a couple of plays go in the way of the city and now you're running to three points that were running they'll be happy with the result and the three points but they won't be happy with the performance and against the other one is that simple they have to bring their very best inorder beat sideway past backpass Georgina suddenly he's playing quite well tammy everyone gets the first not just to go the eventual game-winner is that one finished up let's start with Pulisic okay no why you gotta do go see all it takes is one not so good performance on their willing performs few players around the world that are you know it you'll love it they're going to be great that he made that run into a bus that read their space read the moment when far post first and then cutting continue to play because he continues to do well and so William is going to play down the right hand side and now I need mix Chelsea a better team how good is Chelsea team I think they've won eight of their last nine I think Frank Lampard would have thought at this point the season it's also further along than most quite go their way right it's like we'll see he wasn't ready for this he wasn't ready for this now what are we consistent with this message that competition players I think is benefiting Chelsea and you're getting goals also there's production coming from everywhere and you have to like what Chelsea have done so far speaking of people who niamh ahead to say afterwards it was a bad result but tactically it worked how we now does will get the start Greenwich Not in the eleven not even in the eighteen our department for a club one of the first things that you get to your coach usually not sit in a press conference or any sort of interview and tell them it was I walls that dominated the game in the second half that is arsenal hanging on at home tune into scape out of here with one point plane at home and yet this is what you they named front of me and everything that I told his players they executed because he looks like and is there any reason to believe in Emery as the guy to get this turnaround well how much longer we else when you start believing that yes we're taking the right steps and we're making the right decisions then they have something Chaco situation he says Nobile we're going to handle it be fine we're going to move on from this that we had moved on I thought it wasn't a big deal you now you made it a big deal because you have gone agency in the message from the coach and in the performance of the players Mendoza will do anything in this I think the the the more difficult it's going to be for miserable to find any rhythm out on what Manchester United is what they aren't there's a moment in the thirty third minute Anthony Marceca goes there's different contact and so it falls into one of those categories that we have talked about time threshold in order to switch the call I don't think it does because there is some context what I find most go down how do you know that you know that if you are in full momentum and somebody's pushing in a fight through that you've taken my advantage away and so I don't think it's a penalty sequence you're not into play you're not right there to make that call Josh kings scores the goal for he's a snow response they had plenty of time after this to do something about it and they couldn't that's where the goal I think one this is a mid table team definition what what is what it is as a brand nod what could potentially be in years we're going to have some good days you're gonNA have some days you're gonNa have some great days awful days around here no no no because mid-table team you'll get results and in that position but again that's the level that they're playing this is not a coincidence that this is not the realities of Manchester United Squad changed how we judge all they're gonNA soaps plenty to discuss from today's show they'll be discussing all week especially tomorrow as well on the ghost welcome home yeah that's that's bookie you know what's right he's just getting started it just one point off the top of the table and Nico vetch back at his former club earlier this week it's the franker up in the eighth minute from Frankford on the Counter Durham boats hang with the with their eventually though it's overturned free kick and red card Allahpundit aw twenty-fifth minutes Frankfurt goes ahead. Philip cost stitch the Finnish get it goes up to nil in the third minute you may have thought that they could be Niko Kovac said you know in the dressing room didn't work Hinton Raga heads at home hinderaker Oh okay You got that Ah yes it is and even with ten men you still have to ask questions it's that hot seat for Quebec only getting hotter they see the possession for binary next thing can be salvaged for buying Munich they're in fourth place in the Bundesliga. Okay there's a problem is football goes well beyond that and the problem form of Robert Levandowski and occasionally surge nabri upfront alibis of course Nicholas Soula out Lucas Hernandez out jerome boy made them pay a higher price now the question clearly turns to to Niko the press about dacoven standing right now Kobe himself hasn't Frankfurt Kovic is old club the screws are definitely turning will Niko Kovac be part of that salvage effort as after that defeat for more on the day that was in Italy here's gap Marcatti prevent still nursing that one point lead for grinding it out and they did just that with that late late. Romantic Lukaku US Torino quite a bit of hype they're always a tricky match for the beyond traff who else Matai delake the man who seemingly can't keep his hands to himself although I think from you vent is not certainly not their best performance not the prettiest performance but showed move once again ahead of inte- and also in the earlier game Mike Napoli again waking up late creating chances but not enough not minute the application of the so-called three step protocol which which in Italy are treated in the same as racist or homophobic songs That was after the final whistle so hopefully a corner despite all the injuries from Paulo Fonseca thanks Gavin Reminder Syriac we've got through this edition of it yes PFC that's it you have to be off the clock thank you very much for your questions I'll in said here you were not reflective mode I'm gonNA reflect the it's no according to the most we started this show talking about all the big clubs Walter today and he gives us quite a few options so we've got Barcelona reg top-flight going into that one and Manchester United Against Bournemouth disappointing he is the early Red card lacy defending all so be it it can happen but it's way in the manner in which they lost fill us as if they say you know we're moving from this we're no coming back from this the second half came quick and then like the fifth one something off training and I know and tap the guys who are not really winning balls to do so fifty all it in possession none of that was working rhyme unit in the context of what we've heard all week from Niko Kovac any any evidence that that's not it's not like the team was coming which is a coming into this match she said well I'm frank fans now those fans yeah and then he double down on the comments the next day so he you know not not exactly digging himself like he's almost going to head back to you or something I think I may have been well victim there's there are certain things that are missing brain that's let's not get crazy but then he kind of moved on from the army because he gets to the point yes he's always face you bid cupid stupid papain in all sorts of different things you know he's angry next question predictions show that we did oh well. I don't think I may prediction I did make prediction that Toronto would gene pick their team Toronto you must people are bitter on twitter into the session and corner into just because this people decided to send in a tweet sure where everybody was feeling very comfortable about L. AFC and then Seattle went I was I was about to address that said but when you Atlanta won that game yeah shoot up but that's another way works out all right Steve Nichols on extra tax on so let's just establish the rules rocks paper scissors shoot it's a knockout is this again molest playoffs straight knockout or best-of-three however you want to say you the want even though we got our predictions wrong yeah that's what makes it fun ready so all ahead paper allegedly for the first time in my life you can call me a winner there the long build-up to mls ooh hello maybe we'll get a kick out of you someone on.

Gab and Juls: How will Thiago fit at Liverpool?

"It's Thursday September seventeenth twenty twenty and this is the Gaba judicial you I referenced that you know what happened twenty years ago. Leeann no. Messy rocket. I'll tell you what it is such a big game Barcelos history that I reverend this time and again today. But anyway, let's move on because we have a big show for you Syria getting off this weekend We've got quick hits coming up Jaguars content looking to be on the move, but let's start at the top the Bundesliga who better than Derek Rae the men will be calling. These games four ESPN joining us on the line. This is W. as well if it is he has to do song organization or something like that. You will. I'm sure there's some Scottish. Fight Song that he can deliver it was. Later on Derek welcoming. Let's go right at the top. Geography Contra. Multiple sources including, of course, our very own mark Ogden reporting that Liverpool have agreed a thirty million euros twenty seven, million pound fee with by Munich personal terms TVD but it looks like that's about. What kind of player they're going to be concerned about all the Games he's missed over the years it'd be concerned about the fact that twenty nine years old how does he fit into this Liverpool team? I think he fits well, you know I I think as I look at ti go and yeah, it's interesting because in Germany not everybody has appreciated him down the years every step of the way. But when he's on his game I mean my goodness we are talking about a beautiful footballer and we sold that really under Hansie Flick last season there were doubts about. Going into the campaign when Niko Kovac, was still in charge but. We're talking about somebody who in technical terms and when it comes to actually delivering on the pitch really when he does it is a player who is on the national of central midfield players in the world. So Livable Levin, monitoring this quite clearly they obviously didn't find see the price to begin with but by on as Byron do have driven, not going to say a hard bargain but probably a fair bargain from their point of view. As you set Gaba, it looks as though it's happening. Jobs I'm assuming this vinyl domes gone now. Reports they don't need to sell anybody but in the real world, he's got a year left. You're not giving this dude, a new contract. What does it mean for Byron Go Derek because I look at this and please tell me if I'm if I'm being a little bit chicken little about this but they have they're going into the season with three wingers and one of them's liaison phenomenal player. But a guy who spent the best part of the last couple of seasons injured in central midfield. With Chagas gone you're looking at Toledo Yoshiaki Leeann go let Scott. Buddy result. Nobody seems to like. I do Zirk Zach Thomas Muller circling the backup to live on Dusky Upfront. Or. You can move buller there but then you need to put somebody else in midfield at right back. It's still Benjamin provide who's a centreback impersonating a right back. Let's kick there but then you're down to midfield. Idea little short they need to bring in new players to be sure of their teeth bundles a title. You could argue that you could argue if they're. Doing that. Tell me if I'm wrong. I don't know if you're necessarily wrong because and I'll tell you why I think if you look at law season, we said this is well, I remember having a look at by going into the campaign and even during the season and thinking, Yeah Lebron Dove Ski goes down then you're done to. And okay, he can do it as a substitute. He can do it on a one-off occasion but maybe not over the course of several matches, I always think gab an Julianne that's by on find a way around these things and you know last season they say necessity is the mother. Of Invention they made Alabama David Alibaba and zero back nobody was really predicting that at the start of the season breath because Lucas Fernandez got hurt. Yes I wasn't happy if they don't get hurt. Ripe. So they come up with a solution who's to say they couldn't come up with another solution light. I mean Alabama. For example, you know we know he plays in midfield has played in midfield I country. Now I'm not saying that's what they're going to do but I'm saying I think by on have solutions within the squad to be able to do that. You mentioned tally. So he somebody who's been frustrated because he hasn't played as much as probably he envisaged when he signed que- sauce I like usually aunt think he is a very good talent. So far hasn't been there in terms of the mental side of it, but I think he s potential. You mentioned about of course, there's another one. We're not sure if he's still going to be there next season but TD tools. Yeah I wanted to talk about the doorman obey with you because I'm a big. Fan and like Gab and nothing they can push by in quite a long way. Especially, if Jadon Sancho states if it doesn't taste different story but if he stays I just liked the look of them although other new way you standing there Houston five barometer of Laval not so much like me. I do think the after being. So close to years ago the Nassir close last year but maybe maybe something can happen this year or just in dreamland. No I think you and I are on the same wavelength with regard to dot and. I. Know that there was this big debate at the end of last season shoot. They retained somebody who in the minds of many had failed because you know he didn't catch by and didn't really get close to buy an in the end but I think you can see what father has done, and if you talk to people thought when they all rave about and the people who are close. To the team they say what he does how he works with US players is to be commended and I think he deserves one more chance and so I'm glad he's got that chance now the doubts I have about Dortmund are the same doubts that I had a year ago. They're all defensive doubts I think middle to front they're excellent. They will score goals they will provide the ammunition for. On I don't think that is a question mark. It's all I. Still Am not sure that they have done enough defensively to my Minnea- yes, you know he he's he's good and he will help but do you look dot Moan and say that is a watertight team will keep the door closed enough all them. So threats just just for the avoidance of doubt here I like Lucian Farve, as a person I think he's done some good work. Do you also get so many bites of the Cherry and after all the investment last year. I expected more from them but my considering this year though is we've all marveled tremendous amount of young attacking talent that they've that they've assembled Trying to name them all for those were ignorant been living under a rock I'll do it very very quickly quickly. Jaden Sancho. Yuliana. Brand Hazard Joe Joe Raina they've added Jude Bellingham. Roy It's a ton of people and on top of that of course that they've got people coming through Erling Haaland Upfront, they've got this kid Makoko who apparently he's just turning sixteen or. Eighteen or whatever who erling Haaland was turning with the first team erling. Haaland says all guys better than I was at his age. My concern is when you have that much attacking talent, you want to get them on the Pitch Derek. And yet you can only play. Three attacking midfielder and striker. How do you? How do you navigate that? How do you Kinda? Dole out the playing time in a sense so that everybody develops everybody stays healthy and and happy. And you also get results on the pitch without wall still maintaining chemistry I mean I think that was a challenger in that last season and this year swimming Sancho states it's going to be even more of a challenge though. Yeah, it's a very balanced strike especially for team dot moans where I mean. They are set up to attack and so everybody wants to get his chance and there's going to be somebody yes. Appointed at various times and I think what we've seen is the for document to be successful you make a good point they need this platform and they need a couple of players who are willing to take themselves out of the attacking side of it. Now I do think axel bit. So, though he had a little bit of a dip in form around the Midway, point of the campaign is somebody that can by and large rely on Thomas Delany had his ups and downs as injuries. But I think you know to make the point about it father to be successful does need. It's a half players who are willing to sacrifice. But that of course also means that somebody amongst those attackers was attacking players who you mentioned is not going to be getting a game. You know what I'm worried about for the Bundesliga there and I you know we we we showing it on ESPN and I really hope he's a great season and I hope he's open and have a title race of be like we had last year when Leipzig where I am glad by where I and all of that but you've lost as a league I mean, you've lost seven you've lost Vernon, you'RE GONNA lose. Juggle. You might lose Jalen Sancho you've lost people like Kevin. Fallen He's not. He's not messy birth bays. He's been a really good player in the Bundesliga for many years. Now I live a Kuzin and as you think that the the League if you compare all the places we've left compared to the plaza of calm. He's a wiccan league compared to last year and I just I just wonder what kind of what kind of season are we going to see? Probably, point I don't get lost on anybody connected with the Bundesliga, but these top players have gone, but I think the Bundesliga has been. Careful in terms of how they have managed to recruit in recent years. I'm talking really about all the league clubs. Now you know talking to you a Frenchman yourself the French market has become particularly interesting for Bundesliga club and I think they've they've done a fabulous job that I mean look at somebody like Moussa. Gabby. Sir Lebron Kuzin who I'd love watching him and I. Think there is real potential for him to get better under your favorite Beta boss We'll see how that works out in the course of the season but I mean, there are so many other examples of French players who have come through. Are, getting their chance getting their platform. So this is where I think the Bundesliga has to be creative. They know that you know the way the world is now and in Corona Times, maybe even more so they are going to lose players probably to the primarily more than they have. So it's up to the clubs to be resourceful and I think most of them are capable of being that. You mentioned by Labor cousy near you mentioned Moussa. Koussa. Too frizzy. They've added a Patrick Schick upfront. But most of all, they have this kid everybody super excited about Florian, verts can you describe him a little bit I? He made his debut last year before when he was still sixteen years old if I'm taken. He's School with your true inevitably, people are going to compare him to Kai hearts. Is. Bit Different. There are similarities with habits for sure and you know it was part of again we had been with Kern just down the road but you know players from area are often attracted by Labor Kuzin the not a bigger club in terms of support but they have the resources they have the financial backing I'm Peter Charisma go forget. Of course yeah. I I know that you always beguiled by the charisma of of of the. Obviously As well but I I think that's What's good about him is he can play again across the front. He's flexible tactically in that sense. It's probably too early to say, yet you can look at traits that are absolutely reminiscent of Kaya, hats when he was coming through at the age of seventeen but I think the future is very bright and I think the boss will not hesitate to US via. Sir Labor a lot the season, a team in a transitional face having lost Harvard something lost Kevin Harlan's but having gained Patrick Schick and I think that will be quite a significant game. We talked about father and the pressure and I think on, it would be under pressure as well as. Nine how the full first season and won the travel and etc.. And Peter Bosh Four we know could be could be out of the door in three months and. Probably. Hope so. But I think Niagara Salmon and the pressure he's under because lobster have they have to improve your they? Yes. It's a season where. Semifinalist of their Champions League finishing third in the boost your after having been in touch with the top four. Most of the season team has gone. Tim Verma is gone but they. They've replaced him in a way I guess with Wong from Salisbury but they would maybe. Investor be more between now and October but you want to see Niagara Zeman trying to take on game and teams game to another level as well. Yeah. Help us out with that on on Livesey because they were linked with with a whole bunch of of players. They end up with I. Mean we saw I I've only seen this dude on TV. Against, Liverpool in. Itself but. Is that enough I mean? Can you can you squeeze stuff out of Poulsen and Kumcu some combination out there is. GonNa come good I. Don't know somebody's GonNa come. Sign some stolen. You would think so has been talk about life livesey getting away from the model traditional Botox Traditional Club, the model that they have established, which is signing younger players, polishing them eventually selling them on maybe now they're having to look out of necessity older players but I think I'd be a little bit worried about Livesey. Not as I think they're going to crash anything like. That but how do you keep developing with this model and with the other teams in the League and with the personnel they now have on the personnel they no longer have with with team Oh van not there and shit. Cool. I. Think in his own way was an important contributor last season as a front man within that system, not necessarily a prolific goalscorer but somebody. Who did a lot of the other things? So you're now basically saying to someone like us powers and one of the sort of pioneers if you like for life see when they were coming up divisions, you have to to be the guy again we'll see I mean, we'll see who they sign I would imagine I would assume that we're looking at more signing is for. Livesey narcos amount of course wants them to develop has wanted them to be a more multifaceted team because they are in their core. There are still a pressing and counterattacking site. He's tried to change them to make them more possession orientated I. Just think that there is competition there I don't we're GONNA get to both Co mentioned Gladbach I assume that we will ask. Gladbach next my man Michael Rosa. Yeah. I you know I think that that is going to be a really interesting battle if you like lights he and Gladbach just in terms of where they are with their respective developments I feel like we've hit most of the most of the bigger clubs are gonNA leave you on this because. When Bob Bradley was appointed at Swansea and became the first US coach i American coach to manage in the Big Five. Felt like it was a huge delivery coming out of the woodwork talking to him Blah Blah Blah and I know is a big talker and you have the track record before that. But the second American coach legitimately American coach to coach in a top five leak. is going to be making debut this weekend it's it's know much route. So a newly promoted. Why is nobody to be buzz around in US? It's almost seems like nobody knows who he is and I shouldn't this guy be getting a little more attention. One hundred percent I don't really understand that one either it's not as though he's somebody who has no connection with the country of the US we have US citizens who who have never. To pretend like Fabian Johnson dude he's He's from New Jersey he's from North Jersey groper they all grew up cloudy rain barrel and whatever all the way back to John. Harkes he I think he went to college there and you just move there in his mid twenties right? Isn't that a story? That's right. I I've got great respect for him because he moves it wasn't a glamorous movie basically moved to play lower level football in Germany and made a life for himself there and has made a coaching life for himself and he's learned from some of best and of course, he's working on the Thomas Hitzlsperger there at Stuttgart and I think the interesting thing Gabon and jewels is the. Last. Season when things were not looking great for stood guard, they were having their ups and downs we were wondering if they were going to get promoted instead of doing what some decision makers do and the reflexively firing matter at. So he did the opposite he extended his contract. He said, you know what we have faith in this guy we brought him in for a reason they only brought him in at the midway point of the season. we're going to reward them with an extended contract and eat at the job he got promoted. Now I do think that there will be a lot of eyes on master stood guard in the early part of the season. If it goes the wrong way, they got off to a terrible star. Then he's probably one of the ones that we will unfortunately be talking about as who could be replaced but there's no reason to believe that'll be. The case he's a bright guy he's got great ideas and we all wish him. Well, I also love the fact about this is the as we said, this guy who wanted to make it happen he made his career happened he played is yet he paid his dues you put his rear end on the line and he worked his way up from the bottom Derek. Thanks so much lookout the Bundesliga as on ESPN plus if you're in the US and. will be chatting to you throughout the season. No doubt what about their initiations Oh yes. Derek we've come on come on debut you have to if you want to senior clubs song. Yeah. A little boy Britney Spears. Okay I can do that easily. So obviously, say I'm from Aberdeen North Scotland's and. We have a we have a song of the Aberdeen Aberdeen knows I'll see you can find the right pitch here and you can. You can judge every marks out of ten and I'm sure they they will not be flattering but here we go. Northern lights all the old Dean main home. Sweet home to me the northern light saw Dean are. I long to see I be now one. Of My life. As their side, I've seen God spe- The day when I'm on my way to my home and D. Off. Those Hussein football began in in the primarily league. Let me remind you that the mighty Aberdeen managed by somebody named Sir Alex Ferguson I don't know what he was. It wasn't. So then yes. But he was just Alec at the time the. European Silverware they gave Scotland their greatest ever defender at greatest ever Aberdeen Player. Do you know who I'm talking about? Now, of course. In one, thousand, nine, hundred. That would be one willie. Miller am I correct Derek there's only one William Ella. Cup scholar would have definitely won the World Cup. Bat. Way Back in nineteen nine two. So. and. Of course Joey Harper the most underrated striker in his Dean Gordon Strachan. Gordon's tracking also useful player. That's right. Joy Hopper I'm actually doing a podcast interview with him this week for the club. So Joey, Harper that he is alleged. March, we gave you the Bundesliga are we gave you some mighty Don's as well peers, Eric. Thank you. Thank you that. Gills. Rituals, I was more than Enough Bundesliga. How `Bout I can you make? You excited Lebron I mean more than more than no more Sarah season starting I'm. I've I always get excited. I watch almost any kind of. however, this is exciting because there's so many question marks around you fantas- I. Think you know the General Sense and many people feel this is that you've won the title last year by they moved away from Odi Society they still don't have a center forward as we speak looking GIECO MAYBE SWAT who go for Nine them I I mean I. Don't like the thirty four thirty-three-year-old that. You get for short term fix but the idea is you already have a thirty, five, thirty six to be. As. Good as is not doing your team. Leaving aside, the fact that these guys are basically kids relative to to slot on. But that is Kinda of. Feeling is that they have to we now. Walk Donald still there. So Striking a free transfer I. Get, they're paying decisions they made earlier troop. The objective for Uber, is the Champions League right whether you've been another Syria title no, you've already one nine row. Can you win the big with front? Always we suarez from. She don't you think a bit more so. This season yeah I think this season Jecklin Suarez up. You're talking about a guy who can play X. amount of games you know in knockout rounds presumably you get to the to to the quarterfinals or whatever on your own, and this is where you need that. You know my feelings on thirtysomething strikers, right? From people for being critical of Arsenal and Willian. Look. By once you go down that road. And you're stuck in a corner which is corner that Arsenal risk being stuck in You know. This is what you're going to do Indebted. I think the conventional wisdom is that they are best placed to do it surely. Sort about if they can cook with the pressure if taken cope with the pressure. So the first game that does a really good where he wants to, they may be points if he goes crazy again and they sort of lose nerves the lose the lose their mind, the Luther nerves I that time last season. That could cost them otherwise they yet. They should favorite still very short-termist. I think from from interpret but again, that's what we're seeing now. Obviously, they're really pushing for Vidal, Diogo Dina's sticking around as far as we now Alexis Sanchez of course confirmed. I've got I've got one for you could these be Atalanta's yet because because you can lose his she's old and this could go. Bats because. You don't know the money the bit of time to adopt and get into the groove things. Okay. Maybe Milan E. Bra. You brothers in school. They don't have any those other anything but could these BS. Year. You never want to write them off the what we've seen however, I would assume people some degree are gonNA adapt and and figure out do it also, there's still a chance that Papa Gomez could be on his way. Got Off he's great but you really need to step up if you're GONNA replace Papuan none of course, the the pop dance also questions about. was injured for all that time. So I don't know about that I. Mean I think of it somebody else I kind of like what obviously lots of came very close last season. They've hung on to virtually all the town players, which is, which is a big plus However I think they Kinda overachieved. Mobile pulling crap off again this year we were on the excellent ESPN show mutiny and Stuart Robson said or was it. You know it was it was three I was captain obvious Robson Yeah in the city I was going to be compared to super competitive this year. I was thinking about it and for so many question marks with you with with what would what he can do. You like to at least you understood the logic behind, but it could employed badly I think it could be an to the disaster you could be. It could be Cherry Ori co-signed staff uniform winner I really hope not because I want to do. Well, I think everyone likes. PLO. To see him doing well, everybody believes they could do when he adds orgy attribute to become a manager the way he was the player he's etc etc etc. But he could could really badly, we're going to get in this little mortgages and the quickest we're GONNA be talking about his master's thesis and I think this is kind of a unique situation visit because he. Guiding new job ever manager for WHO gives you a Master's thesis, which is like this is how I wanNA play football and goes into extreme detail. It makes really really I know but check a Motagua better. Than Him and he was a disaster Genoa so he's not because you'll do really good. That's suggesting. But what I find interesting is his tackle does not ended appeal but anyway. What I think is really interesting here is. The type of football that he wants to play is. Very obvious like a blend of Guardiola and KLOPP big surprised there. There's a lot of counter pressing when the ball over the ball quickly keep the ball on the ground go vertical attack the space all the stuff, right? I didn't is very, very tacos with quite complicated position shifts movements. And you know I may do parallel with Zedong, which really angered. Man Manager you'll listen to the quiet old guy who was a superstar in a way you're not gonNA listen to. Saadia Rafa, Benitez or whatever But it's funny because the Dan came in and he didn't particularly do. Anything sophisticated. I'm talking about when he i. Would agree we agree with what worked under Carlo Alright not much. All I can do is really screw things up so I'll just keep the same thing. That's funny enough but these these jobs are harder. Than the than the Riyadh job was Physi- Dan Really. Oh, definitely. Definitely mean so much to bid for now when like you said, you done already arrived on the house was pretty much build. You had to do the little bit of painting there and there I was in yeah and and I think you're missing crazy when you won the leave so many times in a row to say something like that but you're absolutely. Absolutely spot on and what I wonder is. He's being asked or present himself as a guy guys all these tactical ideas. But at the same time I, think he was hired because the club see him as a Dan type GALACTICO whispering. Manager and I think that's going to be the. That's GonNa be really interesting dichotomy there while really like and I think he he because he's so intelligent he's not surprised but he he went and get quite an experience stuff with him he could have just. Just, hired the guy who passed his is cooking badges with, for example, are people who? Played. Wilbur didn't have much of inexperienced but he knew that the. How he will lead with staff would be fine posted but he went to get some people who have been there before he got somebody innovated on. Ideas I'll I'll name check him but he got a guy named talking about yeah. Nobody's really heard of but he's the head of an out. He was the head of analysis with. Italian FA. And you know in Italy a lot of old school coaches, they're not really into analysis tactical Gallison licks might do some video analysis on whatever. That's pretty innovative. What he brings because you know a lot of think. Beatles tactical vision has partly been shaped by interactions with this guy furious thesis, he mentioned all this data stuff that he picked up. So that's going to be really interesting how that works so. We spent a lot of time on. You've I just want to give one last shot up to it all my because we don't. We. Obviously. Losses huge and if jekyll goes that's going to be too but. They're hoping to replace GIECO waste out with milic if he goes. Be. A seamless transition or should be I mean I don't think he's as gifted technically than than Kuwa- don't really grow the left-foot. Volley Dr Jacobs. Couscous for Roma US Dunford Bridge, against Joseph, I in. But in the approach of the game and he's profiled roughly. Similar similar to one could do and you've got the Fonseca Magic in year two. I don't know I I I have Roma finishing finishing in the top four. All told you some game on sutter tonight I believe Sunday Sunday night Sunday nights. This is going to the whole of of the country's GonNa Awards, the whole of Europe is going to watch. These what do you you? If stance? On his face how? We just sit down with the standard. shelter. Law Will you stay choir will lose this? It'd be fascinating obviously lessons. Right, enough of all that, how about some quick hits? Let's go. TURN TO FACE LOKOMOTIV PLOVDIV in the league. Thursday night. But we're not gonNA talk about that because it's marginal the big news is that multiple reports suggests that they're about to bring back Gareth Bale on loan row Madrid reportedly paying half of his wages tvd tools does this excite you and does it excite you to the point that you're willing to sacrifice daily Ali who's been left out of the Spurs squad for the Europa League via we keep a for later Burger Bay I. Just I love the stories I don't I don't think survey good idea and sometimes those stories of all. Digital Song coming back to the club seven years after leaving for record feared the time etcetera etcetera sometimes, you might get injured you. Say That is Daniel Levi's driving this more than Dan Lee has a heart and emotions. He was. Negotiating. For social regularly and then he thought going to wipe out maybe. It would be a great coup for them. I think the funds would be excited. The funds will be happy Gareth I think certainly would be happy and you believe he's hungry to come back and play for Spurs again and all of that. So I think. Makes Sense in a way although I still think before bring someone like him. They should have thought more about strengthening positions in attitude they need a centre forward with different profile. Can play centrally based not the same. I still think I'd be. Good enough I love regular and we come to debate. If. You gotTA sacrifice bail. If you sacrifice alley who's one of your central midfielders and you don't have that many to make bail work even short term I'm not so on board with it. Anyway right. Reports reports I don't know I don't. Hopefully hopefully now because on don't either God because they're on the verge of tying up to deal for several regular remedy left-back for around twenty seven million pounds million-euro. This is a great cool. I think he's so bargain a really really really I think he's a tremendous signing. This whole thing about links united. Then reports were saying the united in wanting because we're all Madrid insisted on a buy back clause two years you know what? Buy Back clause my back 'cause the guy is real. Madrid is GonNa WanNa go whether it's whether there's Aiba closer not right you. Negotiate different bonuses whatever he comes here for two years. He does really really well, Ramadan ready have a guy in his position in furlough mindy to leave Marcello as well. So you know hurry to get back bring a main, not a lot of money very gifted player interesting Ben Davies also gives you options perhaps with the sometimes. Yeah. with Davidson there. So I'm totally on board with it too I. Think it's great signing search. Your man needed an injury time winner from Juliet you to live your first mixture of the season one you'll over mets and stick. Player sent off this time. It was dude yellow but Joel. This is all overshadowed by the wild finish in the patient Marseille game Sunday night and five red cards in a minute walk through the fallout. Yeah. We have the sanctions from the Discipline Committee on Wednesday nights almost the same time as the the game finished during the game during the mets game. So he's a six-match banned. For for cassava one who started everything? Yes. At least through the most punches and kicks on on a Matvey, got three games for retaliating Neymar the big question was we were wondering how much you would get for slap on the back of our head got two games. So the Perez who started the whole Brown by being crazy for the fifteen minutes she said on the page and then. Game, but it's just one game. The the big thing though is the racial abuse claims by name are towards Varo thus is under investigation investigation. So we would know that bellator and for the de Mario Spitting on Enviro. They've? Could mean for next week I. Think it could be in big trouble to Miami we. Could see on the footage I mean are so it during the game to be fair right but now they're looking at, it could be yeah it could be bad for him. All right but. No look the the president of the French for federation came in with a interesting comments on racism in football said when black, when, when a black guy forgive me scores the goal the whole stadium extending not really sure I was going that. So quite frankly the phenomenon of racism in sport and in football in particular does not exist obviously told this guy for real. I have no idea where this comes from I mean I you know to go from one incident to going and making big pronouncements i the also cited something. Where they said Oh, there's only one percent of the incidents I don't even know how to define incidents football are of a racist nature. If, you want to say it doesn't happen every week fine but also that's pretty tone-deaf to say when you have an incident just say there's no place for this we're investigating it. We take this seriously move on you don't have to say the sky's falling and everybody's a racist but equally don't minimize it like this and also like. Are. We still back in the nineteen thirties where we think that you can't be racist if you applaud somebody who scores the goal for your team assured. The guys is the top of French football. He's been there since volatility since stuff in Corsica, all those issues with with racism lately in the last five years and he comes without kind of rubbish. Disgrace going back to last March you told me here, rick album sign a new deal with Arsenal and now we are. Now he's locked up twenty, twenty three but Jules really the highest paid player at the club earning more than me to. Easing. But really good. Did nothing more than ozone no more than those are. Coming from, but you know what he? He believes he deserves it. He wants to stay to become a legend in the club, leave a legacy building legacy all of that. He is the club Tatar really wanted him to stay. So the dressing room so defines I think it made sense it really made sense for us. No my feelings on this do you want to keep out but that's fine. I think means you gotta ditch like that and you shouldn't have signed. William. But Hey, I'm in the minority here evidently. This goes much the city reportedly contemplating at its Madrid Jose Jimenez or Severe Carlos to sign an alternative to Kelly do Korea Bali which seemed that this deal is still very difficult to make an especially if nobody keep on the price that they want to eighteen million euros, who would be a better fair Jimenez all the callers awkward you I like Jimenez Better also he's not left-footed so like They have now all of a sudden, a whole gaggle food centre backs but. He meant is the Bayat clause hundred, twenty million. You'd want to work that down a lot. He is four years younger than Cooley Bali but. I don't know I still think this gets done I. think body comes. That's my feeling but I don't want a bowl is a defendant can play likely by the industry that we don't engine even on. Its the twentieth anniversary of the day. When you know messy arrived in Barcelona today, we're celebrating op yesterday. early with a golden a win over, you don't have for twinkle on the couture gay Jill's it should ever easy at this club. What still with Kuban not being legally allowed to seems Kumon cannot manage to crept cannot be on the bench because they are yet to agree a severance package for kitchen being sucked at the end of last last last season. Finished late last season. Source. Iraqi. Club the Bartolo resident bottom. Doing. It's just time for you to just retire from life just retired from life all. Gabrielle pillows, Master's death. This was published this week and he basically as you exactly. Everything is going to do as Imagine I. Assume you've read it. I read this morning he goes into extreme detail all the defensive movements is. Great for you to read. Let's see if he puts it on the bench. I don't think it's GonNa, be quite as easy as we expect, but it's very Gorgonzola KLOPP. Early Fund Hal ask that great. I think everybody's excited to see what he can do not or a big gamble I maintain the. After early harnesses words at the weekend Biron continue blowing kisses at a hobby w alibaba's agent Selye midget courses, their sporting director sort of because all ECON into. A savvy quote things in other dimensions and that his wage demands a crazy and that maybe other clubs crazy thought. But we're not jaws. How will this end up? I would end up by Alabama not renewing his deal now having no signing staying are buying and then leaving on a free next summer where he go for the money that he wants to get physically deserves to get by don't to don't don't give him. I. Don't know why you don't want to make him one of your highest earners when he's been so good for you for so many years when you've underpaid him for some as well shortly deserves the. And then and then another. Realistic than somebody coming in with an offer for Alabama said, they can't sell you call replace him. The Guy can play in every position pretty much on the pitch. It would be you know losing. The money's you've got the goal money. So there wouldn't be that much or we soom they're getting the toggle money. Wouldn't be that much pressure there. The you call news both. Alibi in the summer for them it would be it would be crazy. So. By the. and. Then let him go for free because I don't think unless you give him the money I. Don't think maybe they will maybe eventually they said, okay. Okay. Is Worn less pain play a long game. Yeah. According to multiple reports are you a billionaire cross is to Palmer that would mean the after Roma, Fiorentina Bologna Milan and probably other. You. Don't want to write a quarter of Syria. He's not owned by North Americans whether from Canada from from the US? How'd you feel about? I think it's good. I mean I think and by the way on cow Krause citing deliver world because I spoke to him Offense but you might be something that might be something coming up on the website But anyway I. Think this is really important for Syria I think the League has been horrendously mismanaged, which is why other leagues I'm talking to not just a result on the page but commercially in terms of image other other leagues have caught up and passed it and I think what we need is more professionalism and I think we need more owners who understand that the game is also a business and you take a medium-term and long-term view I'm. Is when the Cockroach knows nothing about Italy nothing about how Italy worked not nothing about how difficult it is to do anything I think in terms of administration I think that's true to a point. It's also despite the fact that Kyle Kraus and he's listening gives me you're saying this looks extremely mid Western and Germanic His mom is actually Sicilian and his family. Also, came from. Struggled yet but that's not why struggled. But I mean I I think partners are different I'm not saying this guy didn't necessarily be success but I think you need people you need more people like that as opposed to people who? Every time there's a league meeting they fight they argue over scraps and and try to undermine each other I. Think when we get your critical mass of good owners in Syria. Or lease owners who have a business sense in city and you know we've got these five. While there's always discussion about them you would probably add to the left. You would certainly add the other landowners to the list you will probably add. To the list you know you're getting to that critical mass where people like not to mention because I know he's not listening. are going to matter less and less, and you won't have this small clubs stopping big clubs perspective. Other interesting thing is touched on before selling ten percent of the commercial rights to a private equity fund I think that's going to help because you're gonNA have negative control, and they're going to hopefully help the help the league move forward, which is something that I think very much needs. Jack Religious signed a five year deal with Aston Villa after saying it was fifty fifty whether he would stay this means he's not going to united this summer. Wisely part to stick around. So I think. Maybe the the cynical thing he also renewed because no one can for him. Certainly not united, it's united not at the fees that the on the other hand is good because. Because he will go one day because I think he's good. I villa he would go to a bigger club. Spending a lot of money to some but they're never they were never going to. Champions League for them to do and brings European cop. One of my best friends is. No He's Roach and he loves us in Villa and I, really hope for him that they can finish it for you know they want and I. Think one greatest wants to what was she's very international now so I think he will leave one day but at least you got the club covered, there will get some money for. The. Kind of guy who live one year left all on a free or something like that. So I I like the fact that he's that he's sticking around villa historically despite the difficulties are you know if you don't want to obviously there's a big gap big six everybody else but historically there in. United Families, Clinton I. Yeah. Exactly. I love the fact you gotTa homegrown kids remains debuted love the fact that he's a big personality and in the Andy sticking around at least for a while he doesn't need to become Matt Latinos here and think. You know I least give villa a time to chance to grow deafening. Going back to the room on the verge of signing defensive wounded Kid, Mala Kimbala from Hellas. Verona. By the way I'm surprised I'm surprised going to Romano bigger. Club. Went for him but that's another matter gets. Bigger. Than the club from the attornal city. Would say it's Rome yet the oh I know okay. Nine the Champions League champions a guy. Already have. and Gianluca. Cini us. Sent the box. Does this mean though is definitely closed on the mighty Chris Morning? Coming back. This is really interesting. United fans pay attention here because. The gauche were reportedly broke down and whatever else. it's only had a tremendous season. Came back a different player I can only assume the United States got a great season. It'll you grew as a player when it comes to central defenders. We have Lindelof we have germs we yeah. We have the guy who gets arrested in Greece we have you know like. Let me. Know things. In the past and see why we sent you on loan but let's at least have a look, right? Yeah. So I think united being smart in this seeing social evaluative seeing if he can play part this season. My guess is of swollen feels as if you know, he's not going to either be a starter or the first substitute. He might go to the club and say, Hey, can we work something out I'll take a pay cut whatever let's make the deal happen either to go back to go somewhere else because based on how he played last season if it's not a united, this guy deserves to play something that would have back right even with the as and Kabuga kinks afford efficient. So look. Danielson bullish. On. So yeah, absolutely. WHO say my in Memphis defy been linked with moves all season long mostly to arsenal and Barcelona respectively but Leon spoke about the recently and said what? Yeah, what they said the Had nothing beats nothing from either nobody nobody wants to know the interest is that we know that and I believe astronaut preparing a deal a bid. Sorry for for our once they sell Luke Astara Property Torino after Martinez went to. So. I think the two different. I think also we we'll. We'll offer something to Joan for our and I. Think this one could happen. Full Memphis sorry. Different because. The second right because we've seen, I'm worried at Arsenal because we you know we we've seen this version of the played of three, four three obviously in the opener it was shotgun. Now many I'm assuming it's going to be shocked and sue BIOS right is kind of a base where does it mean that? They're going to go with three central midfielders or maybe not playback three ideas to move to a full three three anyway some points. So tyranny moves back to leftback. So we don't have to see yet for example, for classic. and then you could play three midfield and how. But I can play in a in a in a three four three in the two. He runs the law he's got the back and forth. Definitely more so Perhaps maybe more. So than Tobias although he doesn't have the defensive mining approach, appropriate number six would have but I think he can play there. So this is an interesting one Memphis Bossa have to sell first before they buy. Anyway that's also goes for. That goes for session your desktop goes for all the other. Give away for free by the way. Some of these these are some. Of the door. So I think they would make an offer again too young for Memphis once they've been able to maybe. You know sell. Dial go all. Okay. Some money for a player there and then, but unless we still have the mighty mighty Mussa. So they don't really need. They don't really need to Pie anyway it's a tragedy. You'd rather have some money for Dubai for Leone, right? Yeah. Yeah. Definitely. Definitely, and because because the only one sonny's contract and. And and I think they would want to make money him. Got Fi fi giving away a one point five billion US dollars in grants and loans to have full survive around the world after this pandemic what would be the money useful? So the idea behind this is that obviously you know football's hit hard all over the world obviously, we focus on the primarily going to top leagues but fullest everywhere. So even really tiny leagues tiny countries elsewhere even though the amount of money that they lost might have been less is still has a tremendous impact. I don't quite know about some of these. I mean I would the only ran who's the guy who's in charge of essentially leaving the community is going to give this money he said that. World football moves about forty, five, billion a year that they made losses of fourteen billion US dollar figures. Sounds like those figures are. They don't quite sound right to me because. European. Clubs Association. For example, said put the losses at in Europe alone at four billion over two years I don't see how the rest of the world can generate that much money whatever. But you know they're giving this. So know when something's they've given out this money so the players can take Kobe tests and start playing again, which very important because generates money. In other leagues like in Thailand, little more questionable like the money was then used to insist that they could pay for VR in the tighly which I don't know maybe could have been better retain maybe yeah. I. Got Badges View it's case by case. Combination of grants and loans fee for sitting on a big pile of money and they say I, think rightly, the we need this we run real football right? We we advocates world football. Let's give this money back to where it's needed and let's keep the show going to show part is and they spend a Lotta time you're showing us. Is that this money's audited and used properly wherever it goes because obviously, historically previous administrations. When. They started giving money that's when people got in trouble the. Jaws, I know you love your jerseys and your social. Media. I have here a list of the most instagram club kits out there. It's from a company called compared bat which might be totally might be do these basement alamagan Alaba but hey, we got. One. Yeah. So I need you to guess the top three. Okay he's they're wanting to be outside the boats. Scour our something with the Jersey the kids. These are all big rodrigues maybe not the ones you'd expect no Madryn force place I'll K. I will go maybe also like. Second that's summarize. Some of the show because of the funny dramatic lettering on the no, he's stylish. The idea is that you can wear your football buscher in the street, not just to go to a football match. So. To grab. So he's the research top top clubs. To the country our big clubs like PSG. I knew that was coming his ninth a lots. Okay, gone. So third place, it's Liverpool Right. and in first place, it's event is by huge margin because you publish love photos of you with us on instagram. No I think Shauna Renaldo does DOC FM. He's got a huge social media following, but it is a little interesting here. There's actually three clubs. No top ten meet on our ASE. Inc At our tense Byron Munich not very instagram mobile teams. I would have thought they'd be it'd be a little bit little bit higher. Yeah. Why finally gob Diego simeone eighties in quarantine after testing positive. For the virus do feel worse for him or actually for the virus. That's GonNa come with a copy that is a joke that everybody's been making in Spain. It's Yego see meal and the guys are in charge of the guys that beyond and viruses in the virus attacks. Over and destroy it now it's funny. We make love. Obviously this is a very serious. Very serious illness, which is a lot of damage but You know it's a blow for Madrid but best wishes to Giggle shemale and who you know I've had the pleasure and privilege of of spending time with going to lunch with him. He is I think minorities full body as one of the good guys told me once no wise advice to all young players when you're at home in your room.

Barcelona Falls Again

"Palo. They cut with the big east doesn't get handed out till next week. But we had a couple of domestic Cup finals. Gonna say people would big years, next to me what I wasn't saying two hundred Marino. And check his love ahead got county is with us two Cup finals a Jimmy and Spain to get to. Let's start in Spade. Really? The big story with boss Lona taking on village in the COPA. Ray final contested in Seville, boss, Lana, of course, heavy favorites coming in looking to complete the double, but omens early on this wasn't going to be they night, the era from Langley and Rodrigue shock cleared off the line. Volley why from may? He's trying to clear it somehow if I was good at yet. Declare it to the middle row then goes wide open on Philipson decides to go on the dribble. Doesn't make the clear of contact with his left foot became comes across. Hold on defensively beget, but signs early on Valencia they had more than a chance. Yeah. No signs, materialize into something meaningful. Didn't they Kevin Gamero after twenty one minutes, wonderful finished by Gamero boss oil at sees amid the position, Camaro pixie boiled up top with the buffs. I said it's one and then FIS by could do nothing. And the fat was good for the underdogs. This was simply fantastic to nil. Get us eve, Rodrigo speed on the right hand side. Go to the cannot keep up good service coming into option on defendant, in the middle and legal for my kind of range, tune up to then the question was could instill. Valverde's men, come back. Little messy tried to bring the backs. Don't we a lot about is between Messier dominate who sees it all the way in the end. It's very strong. Lapan. Two nil down at the break into the second half and more for Messi this time the post intervening this was a beautiful play by the United Nancy and Malcolm, a little hold the play modicum talked silent messes fantastic. And then a little slap with outside of the left foot makes Queen contact gets past the goalkeeper, but of the post and out on fourteen for Barcelona. Into the final twenty minutes still down to a lifeline. Finally Vass load a messy during the mopping up top in for messy of the setpiece. Questions offside? He wasn't. He was comfortably on dominance gooney plummeted his teeth deep into stump each time one last jots for Bacelona break clearance for Gabrielle wasn't h and that proved to be that the final whistle sanding defeats her messy and Bacelona unbridled joy for the Lynch yet, Las J winning the first civil way in Spain since two thousand eight the eight th time they've won the Kodaira title boscell on that. We'll have to wait for number thirty one alley. We, we have to stop with the with the vanquish, don't we not many people sold this coming Sunday, the bookmakers spousal into a heavy favorites. Did they deserve to lose this? They did any based upon the first half and the lack of intensity with which this thing play not only intensity running with the ball running with. The ball is just the movement over all of the team was so very slow and so very predictable. And so in, in Macy's star sort of as a false and well he's not getting the ball there. He started dropping back into positions where he can get touches on the both because it see, they're messy creating something or messy shooting the ball or Mesa taking chance, or it's not happening for restaurant. Certainly that was the case today. I see has been for most of the season to be quite honest with you. Defensively Varsha whenever they lost the ball, eight felt like it was going to score every time and had Valenza been more effective more efficient in their ability to counterattack this game would not have been as close as it was in the second half Barcelona. I play with a different density, a different level of energy, perhaps desperation that may they game closer by lens. I got a little scare got a little nervous. They took a step back that allowed Barcelona to again regain possession of the ball in advance series and create from there. But overall I find an inverse alone. Again, it looked a lot today. The first half like what we saw against liberal very similar in terms of the. Of energy and their inability to do something meaningful with the ball. Once they had it in the final, it was an upset it was a show checkup. But does it matter in the big picture of slow they lost this final Noah boss kinda hung the has the reputation what happens in league Champions League? So this again, maybe icing on the cake, which. This you could take to leave it. But the bigger point to, to this performance as it would if you watch nineteen minutes of this game is that Basu without leeann messy a very average team. I mean considerably average all the back and fairness it to Valencia. They got numbers behind the ball, then you wear the threat was. And then you exactly how freely Boston would on the contract and they fully deserved the win. Tonight, cloudy is also with a scap. What was your assessment of Vinson's avail? Did you see this coming? Yeah. I mean, especially once once you saw the setup and you know what two years two years of an east of vetted, and you know what you can put a look. He won the double last year. He won the league again this season but he keeps getting out coach thought in big games. And appreciate he has incomplete squad, which means that, if Louis WADA's out, then there's no center forward off the bench was then by one forum or whatever, but still you knew what was coming. I really thought Mancino actually completely blitz them in those first forty five minutes, I thought they could have even even scored more. So in the second half Barscelona came to life a little bit. But I think a little bit was also was also trying to hit on the break, maybe maybe getting a little bit uncomfortable perhaps, but, but even at two one. At the end Barcelona's still had to really good chances on the counter which he didn't take. And I think this is a case just doesn't happen against Liverpool happen against here. He runs into a guy who out coaches him out thinks tactically on the night. And I think this is the stuff that you give you caused a concern. Yeah it's inevitable isn't it? The questions will be pointed towards nest of outcoached in the games that matter is that fair think it is fair, if you consider that the games that matter are specifically champion, so he glass year specifically champion this year and then you refer this as an example, as well. I'm being saying that I would move on from where before this game, and regardless of what the score would have been hearing, there would have been here. I my opinion is very simple. There's been to Oprah -tunities for Radha, the to truly change the way, the team placing moments in which the team needs an adjustment. And he has failed to do so, and that's. The responsibility of a coach. So when he happens two years ago in a row when you have this sort of collapses that he's had. And they've had a group against Roma and against Liverpool Indiana reflect very poorly in the players, but it also reflects incredibly poorly on the coach in a messy comes out and says that he thinks very busy, right? Cool shit for for the foreseeable future. If you're sitting in Boston, a boardroom you have to take that you have to do that. What else is he going to say, check new, I agree. But at the same time give the person has been on the over the last week. And you your stop there comes out on defense as, as he does I expected more from this boss. I really did. And I understand gobs point that, yes, you can see this coming. But then the same time Lena messy picture boil up in midfield, and runs the length Phelan scores. How many times have we seen that as well, it fees as when you watch sooner that's what that's what you? That's what you hanging on you hanging on magic from Leland messy and you go to ask you've got to ask for more from your coach than just to see you've got the best player and the will let him do it. What's very giving you otherwise gap. Well, it's funny, I was listening to what you're saying Chaka, and I agree with your with your conclusion at the end. I seem to be like you were going different direction when you were talking about, you know, messy coming out and backing, visit mess. He's going to do that. Because, you know, if you sort of hums and Hawes and says, well, let's see what happens at the end of the season or whatever, then people are gonna cues them of not, not backing his manager. The reality, I think, is, if you're Barcelona, you can't let messy pick the manager because we saw what happened when in the Tino Bockel a couple years ago, you need to find somebody with the right personality that can relate to messy that can manage messy and say, listen, you're going to carry carry us when we need you, but we're going to have a framework around, you, they, you don't have to do what Ellie described earlier where he needs to shoot on goal. But then you also needs to be back in midfield to create because nobody else will do that. You need to have the courage of boardroom level to realize. That some of these players need to be moved on some of these players brought in, we thought we're going to be really good. And all of a sudden Nelson tomato was going to be the second coming. And then you realize that the guy has serious trouble defending you need a little bit of humidity there. And you need to make some strong decisions to summer and the one thing that would worry me Frankie to Young's in the way, it seems that we're getting a lot of I candy we're getting Yong. We're getting greased and we're getting sort of two, three superstars whereas I think there's a lot of surgery to be done on the everyday role players in this team as well gap, a bottom line when the new league season kicks off the end of August, whenever it is a nest of outlet, a still that on the touchline. But at the mayo came out after the game tonight and said, well he has a contract in tonight's defeat. Wasn't his fault. Labonte mayo ends up swaying with the wind. I'd be really surprised. I think even bus alone if they were gonna make a change, they're not gonna make it based on this game. They would have made the change before that. I think Raj Ingley. They think that they can reenergize team by spending some money this summer. I think about Domos state, I think about the mail. I think the stays bought the monks, definitely stay never manage. It was very much under the spotlight Niko Kovac despite winning his domestic title last week, complete the double Munich taking on ABI light sick and the big showpiece Jim and Cup final in Berlin. Robert Levin dos key, of course looking to add to his tally of goals, but there's pulsing was hoping to score both of them gets in between the fenders. Nice little header, powerful, but nor reaction time of the crossbar now, great safe and didn't they make the most of that little buying this real dangerous attack. And this happened. Kuban Inaba league, the left hand side, allow the cross in this headed from rogue eleven Belsky going back to what's his own, but was somehow gets target. Keeper wrong footed that is an incredible finish PK may make an amazing goal line clearance in the Spanish Cup final. How about this Abraham cannot? Exceptionally well. Staying with the play in an onside position recovers behind goalkeeper as he should kings. Combing takes a little wider than he would have wanted to not with a tremendous safe. This was the pivotal Cup final early in the second full spook cliff through for like sake. But no, it to the rich yet comes up trumps again, come out to strengthen cents in a delicate policy through book, should it better. But Noah exceptional that this is well Kingsley Coleman to pretty much wrapping jumped late on his up in the air kinsman already made. You know what I'm going to sell them in a shot. I'm going to take thoughts around him. Defender. Flies by, and then the nice finish the far post, and then just for good measure, long fold Levin, dusky, muscling his way for completing double. Draw the hoop for Bullen rubber eleven goski doing us. He always does get off me, somehow gets wrong side on their needs to show more strength. But creditor eleven Belsky keeps his poise. What a finish. I n Robin. And Frank river coming on late cameos as they say goodbye to bind robot had a brief moment in front of Galway. His name on the school sheet, do the right footmen. Or the Rumford. Maybe you know he doesn't do that. Minimum Neue, raising the pot as they call it for buying view. Nick at is twelve time that they double windows in Germany, and that's just in the Bundesliga era of this to that. Nineteen sixty three nobody else in German history has managed it more than once pretty good end to the first season charge for Niko Kovac watching this final gap, this could easily have gone in a different direction though. I certainly could have especially in that first half Leipzig creating tons of problems for Byron. I thought. This was a game that really exposed some of Byron's. Weaknesses molars pace on on the counter Tiago. I thought they got with him. Well life. She gambled that they pressed high up the pitch. But one ever ups and downs Byron had this season, the cardinal rule is they, they seem to stay calm, under pressure. They find a way to pass out of the press. They take the lead of us on that rattles, you opposition. And then they go out there and and they managed the game but, but certainly on balance. This was a lot closer than the scoreline suggests. And they wraps up a season that seem to be going horribly off the rails in December. They were in fifth place. Looking totally out of it. They end up as double win the Champions, League remains the big, and they Rada yes. And, and some turmoil early on in this season and some questions, and I think, rightfully so of nego kovic, and then you'll start to as a question of, you know, this team is getting older, and we didn't do anything to make this get any younger. And so when river easing rubbing his senior now you're looking in some different places to try to get that creativity. And that explosive movement and dynamic movement into final thirty or saying what were. Has the talent coming from? Well, you didn't do anything to address it, but through it all they just they just kinda got resold resold after sold eight held came back to them. I think that gave I am unique confidence to then gain run. And when he came time to have a big matchup and he was that game against at home by Munich they puff their chest out and say, you know what? You got beat us. Good luck. You're not going to do it here. And I think, right, then and there they stabbed sells the champions and continue to move forward. What should be considered successful season, you impress watching the Shangqiu? I'll be clearly. No, mugs Ali, I was impressed ones. Goo Livesey with the battery two teams up until rubber eleven. He's some ho finds the back of the net doing only as he can do it seems enough. It was by Munich and cruise control which retrieve come to see and that thing with this by team. They're not. Are they hadn't been as dominant as, as you would think? Or maybe you expect when you talk about by Munich. And you're talking about a team that's just won the double. But I thought Leipzig sure they lack of experience or maybe it was it was by just being better once once they got the goal and similarly league and Allie mentioned this, this league was dope, Mr. lose. And somehow they managed to do that. And by then new when, when others around them, them couldn't and that's been the difference between them and everybody else, not that they've been that much greater than everybody else cab the end of an era for buying with three is on the way, Robin river Phoenix, as well none, none of votes. Smaller. Apart sense. It's a big summit coming up for the Bavarians. It is. And they're really moving on that they're certainly targeting team Verner the big positive with him as he can back up live on ski and obviously do a job for you wide, obviously they extended breeze contract very high on him. They're being strongly linked in the media with a move for for LeRoy Sante as well. He's going to cost an absolute bundle. But they feel that if he comes he's, he's a game changer. You've got Corentin Toledo coming back from injury midfield younger because another season under his bell. And then at the back, you know, you brought in into guys who we hope can can can help you in Pavitt and, and Hernandez wouldn't necessarily have been my choices in terms of addressing the needs that they have. But I think they feel that they'll be stronger in every department. Now all they need to do is maybe lose couple big salaries in the form of HAMAs Rodriguez. Possibly bought Tang and there and the elephant in the room gap Niko Kovac as he done enough, as he displayed his credentials as he gonna stay. See that's the question. Right. We, we think of Byron this very rational club. It shouldn't depend on ninety minutes football whether he stays or goes, especially when they were outplayed foot by foot for long stretches. This is just a hunch. I don't know what they're gonna do. But for me the, the fact that there was still a question. Mark hanging over him going into this game. And buying aren't the kind of club where everything's going to hinge on ninety minutes that suggests to me that maybe he won't be back. We'll be fascinating to follow that we will let salute the end of the robbery era. I enrolled in Frank river. Yeah. This is the numbers they put up Rubery was twelve about being you. Although there's only room for two hours. We'll have to wait. Of course. That's the a you Brennan. Robbery was winning the Champions League get banking twenty thirteen at Wembley. Tracking the domestic dust bunny. You come to find them hiding under wardrobes next to loss socks don't to sudden, although scurry off what's utley fascinating about the money is that, although they're not actually censured creatures when they have Kyko not only saves people money, but also has ninety seven percents customer satisfaction rating. It's obvious to them. You should switch because yes. Switching to gyco is a no brainer. Oh, no. It's the dust bunnies, only natural predator on the long dust on his run along. Scottish Cup final Ediborah Celtic against hearts, showpiece occasion. It's back in the big game for the first time in a while. And that leg early in the second half in this one. Ryan Edwards, not making the. The best, I suppose, but efficient backheel that works out. I mean, not police in bud again, effective one nothing. They don't care. Unfortunately, the lead launched it eight minutes on taken down in the box. I have no choice here. Edward does well, keep commits, I mean, don't know why you protests, keepers point not. Okay warm, the penalty at want just himself down to tuck it away. Guests there. Cevdet T-rex arms. And it was Ed watts contribution that proves to be the match-winning eight minutes from time. Breaking the hearts of hearts. Goodwin. He was. That was cute age. To do this, these triple-triple. Three times in a row. They've credible. Trouble doing doesn't it? Three two as you said, I ever to do it six time in Cup history. They've, they've won a domestic treble and Thirty-nine Scottish cups. New trophy cabinet, I think very soon in Glasgow. That was even better agent. To keep shutting. That's my question. That's the end of I'm afraid that may well, let's go to France. Tobin to cool as extended his G, P, S, G country. Little bit surprising. This many thinking, he may be on his way out of it room is about max Allegra, even Josie Marino. But he's going to be there through the twenty twenty one season somebody who's not going to be where he is currently Mary about studies or von Tomasz say, on Instagram said, thanks, everyone for these amazing five months, even if we didn't achieve our objectives. A really want to say thanks, coaching staff plays presents is everyone the woods with manti supporters. Thank you. Hopefully, see you soon, or good look for ever, they all right? There's a little message. So ballot Elia free agent. We don't know where he will go next turns twenty nine this role. The latest news and rumors can always catch up with transfer tool. Cannot website, ESPN, AFC dot com. It's the segment where you get your questions onto you send them in. We unto them. It's that simple equation. Okay. Make sense. Vailable on the YouTube channel some juicy wants to jump into today tomorrow show, we'll feature the Italian job the final day of action in Syria steady, we'll have poll gab OB with us say, nothing's creams Italian job like TV. Leap to promotion game involving new Polk County and trim me Rovers deep into stoppage time this happened. Kringle now. Giddings. Two. Toback promotions to the club from the world. Back to back promotions Tranmere? Rovers done in style. But really, the story is Mike, gene the referee. In that. Of course he made it about himself. Motionless creatures, those referees, gab. I know this is a lot of tension in the UK. Do you have a problem with dean celebrating? No. I just I'm more of a general problem with, with Mike dean in general. Ordinary stuck around as long as he has think you setting himself up very nicely for, for post refereeing career when he can become a referee character and more power to them. But I'm very happy for Tranmere because, you know, this is a story club, John, Aldridge, all that, and great to see them climbing through the divisions again. Think pizza Walton was the Newport county fan, so he didn't make the cut. Oh, yeah. Pope peter. To question that felt genuine, I have no problem with my celebrates as as he did. I mean obviously no has been Jordan, and you have to be careful about his appointments, not just trying to, but any of the, you know rival clubs. But yeah, I can't you over your reference clubs as well. The humans we knew they have their favorites. They're human. They can we have come from. Have you seen Peter? Do you see congratulations of Tranmere? Oversize. He that not moving up. Wonderful trend me related questions. On extra time that's coming up next. Extratime go. And I think it may surprise you to learn that there are disgruntled busload Avantel today. They seem to jammed up this company. Right place. Injury is bursting with events. Writ through a few of the before we get into it just his personnel needs goes takes out, goalscoring mid wreckage puts in BT. Mid Elena doesn't play non season. Leaves him into stock cramping with twenty minutes to go on we go instead of author tomato. Who would you have substitute? Or do you think that was the right decision and then how can validate the name to put Sergia Roberta as a right wing when he's lowest guy on the pitch and pitch, Malcolm, decent right-wing? How does he does that change? Second half in game was much benefit bosses and are they are they not wasting messes last couple of seasons. That's kind of a summation of the disgruntlement at outlets have had a lot of luck to impact, as it is. Let's start with Coutihno. Yeah. It has to be incredibly frustrating for Barcelona fans to see what continue has become as a player in Barcelona dribble dribble dribble dribble dribble dribble. Get close to messy, give him the bowl two yards away from him. Dribble dribble gerbil dribble loose ball. And then just walked back, dribble gerbil dribble dribble straight out about. That cannot be what you were looking for. And this was supposed to be a guy that was. He would be the one to relieve some pressure from leeann because continue in theory would be good enough to create space for himself attract attention, and therefore free of messy it has not happened. And the time for continuing he doesn't help himself with the body language either, and that is not a guy if you if you're sitting in row said over there somewhere and you're watching this guy play, and you are ready. They're not feeling all too comfortable about him. And then you see them LUSA the ball and he'd that he doesn't quite have the work ethic or the willingness to go on try to recover the ball that he just lost that would drive anybody absolutely insane. That sounds like a whole lot of triple. When it comes to Cuccia take take your pick. I'm it's been frustrated to see to see continue be that, that, that he has been. But in all honesty, messy. Everybody else as trouble been huge disappointment. There's no Louis highs is sitting on the bench. But I don't think that excuses boss from the finger. Gap is with us gap. Do all these questions you file into what you brought up in the show questions about velvety and his tactics? I mean, there's the Jimmy questions about his t's. Right. Because he could say, well, if I played them Ben Juarez than we don't have the problem routine doesn't play, then we win. And then nobody's going me. But the reality is the reason you, are you have one of the biggest jobs in coaching is that you can come up with other solutions. You can come up with other ways. Hindsight is always twenty twenty obviously, somebody like Malcolm would have made things happen sooner. At least he is a genuine winger. I think there's probably painful decisions that you could have made earlier with some veteran players. You know, I know rackets concern it on. But when rackets easing condition, and it wasn't necessarily the problem tonight, then there's no reason sticking with him just because he's rocketed. We saw data creativity when they moved to what looked like sort of this variation of back three when they were when they were changing chasing the game. You know, the question is, why don't we see that more? Well, why doesn't that become a way of playing in certain situations when you options are limited these questions visited has an answered? And let's not forget he's not here because he's on Mark to he's here because supposedly he is the brilliant tactician, who does different systems and can motivate players. And you know and then can adjust. But there's no adjustments parts of loan. It really is bride. Massey's coattails as long as we can more of a wide angled lens tight question on that subject coming from I Julia attention to this name Stevie Stevie Nichols shepherd's pie. The first question white angle lens from the pie which Spanish giant allowed they scored to pay more bossa Madrid, which we'll have the big overhaul this summer. Take your pick. I think the obvious answer is that my? Who loss, if people don't know this they should know this by now eighteen times in eighteen times kind of gives you an idea how how far they dropped. Did win the league. So it's difficult to make a case that their squad has decayed further than I think we on my house. A bigger. Rebuild job than brussel on those gab one specifically for you from Nick. How'd you think salary bowl will possibly work out and you've intas and can it lead them to Champions League glory? Sorry, rumors won't go away. I don't think anything will have anything concrete, obviously, until after the euro per league final, and a lot of a lot of Domino's have to fall for this to happen. It would be tremendous tremendously. Courageous choice from event is given the recent history given Saudis, recent history, I would be really interesting, and then people already speculating about what's going to happen, where do you play because China Renaldo in saris, four three because pretty obvious they need system. You're the winger are asked to do a lot of coordinated movements. A lot of very specific jobs. You don't wanna do that, this one, we see Ciano operate purely as a centre forward. For example, you need dynamic midfielders to make it work as well as a deep lying quarterback type. Maybe that guy can be commute Ganic possibly. But then you have a dynamism in, you know. Players maturity, like marine Sean to do that. Or they different types of players to me, this Yugoslav wall all Tate better than a lot of the teams out there really doesn't. Doesn't seem suited at all to, to disarm ball for lack of a better return. And all I can think is that if they bring him in this is going to be transitioned season. And it's gonna be a longer term rebuilding projects. One thing is for certain. Your genius gonna play. Hundred percent join and figure out how renowned oh, say Daniel. Genial gene, you play, and according to the two ridden going to be pet on salary is joint event. Oh, schatz. Wow. That's what I read, sources, what I read from Mattel, Uber nineteen. Oh, I saw that. Finally, drove the Guna for alley. Where were you yesterday to say what you normally say when the news about Lukac? I was watching my my son play. What can I tell you? I got priorities. Thoughts on alleys delivering Koku line, Bill these sons if general. If Lukac your does end up into good for him. The. Right now. We don't know who the next inter manager is people are taking for granted that it's going to be on your phone. I don't think we're there yet where we can say that. So if it's a guy who wants Kaku can work. Give them that kind of that kind of service, Schori. It's a chance to, to relaunch his career. I'm not sure inter a lot to depend on the price. But Kaku doesn't come cheap. He has an enormous salary at adventus United. We'd obviously signal the end of, of mile ricotta D when a lot of people might be fine with that. But then you gotta make sure that you can sell them. Well, and get some money back. So I don't know this Lukaku thing seems to be like a lot of talk. A lot of behind the scenes stuff from the man who, despite being suspended right now, still, the great puppet master, one of the great puppet puppet masters. He's the same guy who's moving matai delivered around. He's moving Lukaku around he moved Paul, Paul around if he could. That, man, of course, is mean Araya. Mean araya? Yes. Me. No. We, we love him. Don't we he is? Well, I don't know. Someone does. Florida have suspended, well because you move pieces very well and people don't even know where you are. A head of you got things going on in different places like more like a LEGO match. I said, what's Britta's every does move to into shouli alley? I would expect nothing less volunteering you just. Nothing that I have to hang out with my. That's the case for you. Have to get to now. I'm out I've read I I'll have a thousand times over my wouldn't it. We will be concentrating tally matches tomorrow as the champions of the expense Osorio, Gavaud return, and the, the Italian boys. Stevie? We'll be easy. Yeah. So you that.

Paul Pogba tells Man Utd team mates he won't be at Utd next season, Bobic tells media "i'm a realist if a great club like Madrid came in for Jovic we would have to sell"

"Welcome back. Everybody to the radnich podcast of the end of a week with very few dramas either on or off the field, the only ongoing saga that continues to interest. The media is that's all Gareth Bala just how Madrid can rid themselves of a player that simply will not it appears go anywhere. Now. What is future may very well be in Madrid is Luca Yovich, Freddie, Bubby as being quoted today as saying that there is a real possibility that Yovich will sign for Madrid. I want him to stay here. But I am realistic know that have a great club light Madrid comes in for him. Then we will have no option but to sell him. Remember, look at your completed his move to on-track Frankford from then fica in the last week. And now, though the boggling can begin in an SDS part is clear to negotiate with Madrid. Pedrick Ruiz, though, is the man that I'm trapped want as part of the deal, and this may well be. Sticking point is a player with huge potentially the top score with the team's twenty Twenty-one goals of all the games. He's played this season is a Spanish under nineteen international as well Madrid have a big decision to make here. Do they let a play with significance potential Goto secure Yovich or they try to fend off the interest by offering Marianna or Al D Thomas? Instead looks like a bumpy ride ahead before this deal does actually get completed staying in Germany Niko Kovac, the by Munich coach was pressed on the future of Hammas Rodriguez Sube once again is out of favor. There was a curt reply to the question. Why isn't he playing? Well, we change things he said for the Dortmund game and that gave us a five no victory. So why should I change anything? Now looks very very lightly. Indeed that we'll be on his way temporarily bag to. Drid before he shipped out. Elsewhere now, pull Paula has allegedly told his teammates of Manchester United. He won't be around next season. And he wants a fresh Gelin JR. The mood. United is quite relaxed. It said if we secure a good deal, you can go being the view and could that be a cash, plus Tony Cruz deal as the German would almost certainly be relegated Paul arrived in Z. Dan's comments on Palmer, do tend to underline that. He remember said. Well, there are very few players who can contribute so much as pob. Can he's amid field Blair who can defend and attack. He really does. Have it all modern o'dowd's future seemed certain now to be a Netherlands with I axis his next destination, but rid initially wanted twenty million for him. But we'll negotiate a deal zoo. Dan has made it clear that there is no room for Odaguard. Should he return to Madrid in the summer? Later said the Z at has managed to overcome one significant terro for next season that is getting around to agree to stay next season. The is yet to confirm or deny though, any of those media reports now do Madrid have any jobs of siding Mattis delinked from I as well new package deal is being put together for a player that some believe could be the new Sergio Ramos. There will be a fifty million cash plus Mariana, plus as a sweetener Ford's elect a salary almost double walled Barcelona are prepared to offer. It's tempting prospect. Indeed. And who knows it might just work. Now, Jaffe league suture is way from Benfica, according to his agent hoagie Mendez who's currently trying to get Benfica to actually reduce their release fee, which is one hundred twenty million down to about eighty to secure a move away after interest flagged significantly. Where nobody stepped forward to discuss the possibility of move at that price believing one hundred twenty believe for a nineteen year old one season behind him was just asking a little too much for a play. If MO is dubbed, the new Cristiano Ronaldo to stay on the subject of former Benfica players. Greta she went to Barry sash. Remember was then loaned out to Valencia is being linked ram adrit. Again, albeit on what they say is the be list. He's coming to form of light with six goals since March and on the face of it Valencia would be unlikely to sell that anything less double the forty million that they paid for him last season. The one player who this season has found his reputation has been significantly enhanced is that of counting Benza, but despite what could be a record season for him. It hasn't stopped Madrid's pursuit of signing. Another proven strike, oh one who. Becoming though it seems is economy is agent wife was seen in tears on Italian television on Sunday evening when she proclaimed where he will be staying in Italy next season. Rumors though of most Saleh's falling out with Kojiro club odd gathering a bit of momentum of this. Despite his agent denying. There is any significant issue with yoga clocked meters in Spain on France all continue to speculate told him Hans but looking at an eleven VAT intervention to keep Christine Erickson ads the club. They're seeking a meeting with the play and his agents where they will offer him a w money salary in order to remain taking him onto eleven million per season, which would be an excess of what rail Madrid a currently offering it told him Hotspurs record signing Devon's and Sanchez could be a Veran replacement. If indeed he does decide to go. He's grown. Tide of playing this bit part role in the T me. Remember will only be twenty three this June would relish the move to Madrid. If it were to materialize. But again, it would be hard to bogging with Levi's unto contract into twenty twenty four and Spurs would want double the money that they paid for. It could be about to spring a surprise by rescuing Adron raviol- from this personal nightmare and torment PS g the play remember can leave at the end of the season for nothing. He still with that any concrete offer. And as we say could be snapped up for very little indeed Z, Dan is said to be mulling over the possibility. Now, the latest on the bap a rumors that continue to occupy space across all of the media's around here. But once again, he was quick this weekend to dispute any potential departure over the summer. I'm staying for sure he said, but does seem to be a general level of agreements between most that three players. In particular will not be at Madrid's next season. Mockus Leah Renta should bias and Arregi lawn. Who must be feeling the most frustrated at that having seemingly won the battle for my sellers place under salary he napkins himself once again on the fringes time. No does appear to be on his serum. He is only twenty two years of age. I just returning to PS g one player who's received a definitive. No, we're not interested after making tentative enquiries about a potential move. Is you drag slow the twenty five year old who actually made seventy five appearances for the club scoring eleven goals since his move from Vosper back in two thousand sixteen seventeen. He's desperate to move away this summer to reignite a career which a few years ago. Remember when he was shelter destined to take him to the very top of the game. Let's not forget it just be as significant few days, of course, for Karen Benz. Mass score. Of a hattrick over the weekend. It was his first hat-trick since December of twenty fifteen hundred IGA where he schooled three in that infamous ten to victory of viscount. It's only a second attract in league scored a couple in Europe. Remember, scoring his mom. Oh couple of hattricks there and against Lavanchy in the culpa del Rey, memorable day all round made even more. So the facts that he's actually done something that neither Rinaldo. Distefano push or Sanchez did which is he scored eight goals now in a row the last player actually other than him to score a goal was sa- bios against west back on the thirty. First of March is the damn went ost about the hatchet can general level of performance by Bensimon was all of it matter of factory. I'm happy for him. He said, I know the play that he is. I'm not surprised at what he's done as fa- county Benjamin. He was asked edgy why? He suddenly started to schools so many goals. Now, what he said we play a system where I am. The number nine didn't have to run seven much. He's two goals. Remember off his record of thirty two as well. It's just a record. He said if it happens it happens. I just want to help the team to win an on his future. He said I'm going to continue with Real Madrid. Why would I go anywhere else?

Gab and Juls: Dortmund's Delaney on Bundesliga's Return

"The happy Thursday jaws because guess. What the Printer League voting unanimously twenty zero to come back to full contact training. We're one step closer getting closer. We're getting close to actually restarting starting now. There's a whole bunch of issues we're not GONNA go into them by an important next step now. The ball is is in the politicians court The testing results. Also broadly speaking that. Then you had four positive tests out as out of many. I don't even remember their meeting with more than a thousand strong yet. Still Not one hundred percent clear how people can test negative and then positive a week later. I guess they own was they go infect themselves but you know there is positive mentor and it's looking good even troy deeney has said while. I'm Connie reassured now With my conversation so on the captain's my responsibility I'll be back so we're going to be talking little bit about that. Allah. We're super excited. 'cause WE HAVE. Thomas Delany on Dortmund midfielder and obviously we will be talking a little bit of Syria. Big Big meeting today and quick and the teaching and of course the that buying located to there won't be Tidal Meshach Premier League Dini. We have the vote another talking about going to get your view on this. You're talking about the rebate that the primarily are going to pay to the broadcasters and it looks like it's about it's about half the amount it's about three hundred and fifty million pounds and because of the way the money's allocated disproportionately hit the wealthier clubs. Is it right or should they try to hang onto that money? Yes very interesting one and you can. You can imagine a choir heated debates I thing today Via Video Conference and stuff like that basically a right holders sky in the UK but also some some of the international burqas a saying hang on again to all close doors the product. We would said it's not the same so we need some of that money back because we we paid. Enormous amount of money for product is not there which is in a way true so you can understand their side of things the beginning January. Because you could go back and say Oh yeah sure but you also have a bunch of people stock at home because he can't go outside because the virus what are they gonNA do. They'll be watching your games your true why trying to you. Know to put pressure on that point. They hosts are hoping both of them to more games to broadcast so right. Now there's ninety two games left. I think forty seven between sky and bt the hoping for maybe forty five more that they can show an indicates that will also make mean more money for them to spend to but does game so ex- strikes. Pensions and things like that. So maybe they want to recoup a bit of the money in that way the know for the point of view as you said you could be a disaster. You could have to pay by THIRTY MILLION POUNDS FOR SOME OF THEM. Ten or fifteen million other clubs. Who Ran Out. We don't have that kind of money to to give back to to broadcasters so I think he's a key security I I think I don't know why you but they surely can find me either grand somewhere around to play the money back find a grumman even over next season because you read the rebate. Yeah you can spread out the next season over the next couple of seasons huge meeting today in in Italy It looks like it's all systems. Go like they finally have an understanding chore a restart which would be on on June twelfth Clubs back in full training of course so that looks to be on its way the tricky in Italy. Monday I have a plan B of the playoffs but also just a lot more games to to to fit in there. Because you've got more rounds left to play so we'll see how that how that lines it gets more important there Really start earlier. Otherwise starting next season October at this stage The way things are going. Ooh and Spain. I talked there is nothing new for the people who haven't seen in a video that Boston of the little bit of training with macy's defending attacking creating scoring. And if you thought that maybe so the players would come back and we didn't have enough that what he looks ready for. Sure we're GONNA talk to Thomas Delany in a minute Just wanted to get your thoughts. I on the game In terms of I mean I wrote this on the website. What struck me about buying? I know it's Cliche but they really are unflappable. And they're also show versatile you know in that first half. Yeah both teams chances but you know. Don't forget the first half was was was pretty was pretty level and in buying just made some make some adjustments in the second half and in the second half when you expected a dormant to be throwing the kitchen sink after we get back in the game stop buying we're really never endanger except for that. Vr and yeah penalty. You're right and that could have changed. Maybe not the game. I just think that once they go one need up is by inside. I think there is no way unless you are super super gruden efficient. You can come back in again. That's exactly what happened. So the first the first half was one of the base. Half of what I've seen this season really was and despite the fact that there was no clowns and other just coming back out of two months without playing I thought. The intensity was amazing. Also everything was amazing. I love the way Dolan plates. And how they beat the press and really because yeah they beat the press but I thought conspiracy. Absent in this game was Who was so good. Once you get in the final third ultimately you'll still going to need some quality to go and set up the chance for somebody and it has to be union brand because you know organ hazard. Love him to death. It's not gonNA be handled. Provides at Holland is there to receive the ball and score to see him. You know midfielders. Maybe Guerrero's I diversity but again by by playing Nabri and Coleman the way they did those guys were pinned back the whole tribe because they knew that any clearance or create huge problems for For for for Dobermans wingbacks. True or the key me huts some positions in the first half especially where they used that Ryan side really well again because they knew that was going to defend massively so there was a couple of there was a few times where you had to view on executive expand on Monday when Davis was was one against Hakimi in and has though I came in bronze and I think there's a few times I don't know if you don't and they went all the way to the last thirty yards and then he was all about the final and many many times they messed up. The Cross was not good enough. The past a couple of extra touches or for passage didn't really need the shooting off. And you would like they. They're so easily in a way and then the last pass the nice touch was not good enough and you can't do that him because one woman of Genius from came as web rookie should have done better but still the whole thing was and what I loved about a goal and hopefully we will ask. The rainiers is after the game. Kimmy says we knew we knew how Burki played and we knew the Burki we know that Berkey or was plays a couple of yards ahead of his line so I knew that he would be just the extra space between him and the ship would go in and I think the most Mueller refers you as wedding in into Jimmy doesn't even look because I thought what is he does he have like beyond you like a bat where he's got like weird radar to know were. Berkey was. I'M GONNA. I'M GONNA ask Delaney about that. Because you know. I don't know if Thomas Remembers if he's too modest but he scored great a very similar last minute. Winner for Copenhagen in a big game against a big game against Brumby back many years ago when he was still when he was saw Denmark. It's on Youtube. But you know what I'm sure people would rather hear from US miscellany. Bring him on Thomas. Welcome aboard. I just made this joke before starting to record but a lot of people have noticed talking about the important stuff. I A lot of people of notice that your hair is a little bit out of control. We say in lockdown showed you make you feel more comfortable gonNA remove my house in my. Here's a math. I'm guessing you didn't trust yourself to give yourself your own haircut with some clippers or anything or go fully shaven headed. Not For you now Now every summer it's it's the same question I'm like I'm GonNa I'm GonNa Shave like Gogo real short but on the freighted won't grow out something. I'm superstitious about that. I know it's irrational but it's still in my head that maybe Chris won't come out if they have a so. I never dared I From a happy note to Tuesday night obviously it certainly folic whole world was was watching the game at yet. I just want to get from you inside the stadium. Not your first game behind closed doors but the fact that it was buying did it. Did it feel different? Should it does feel different But in the last three games now I feel like that whenever you get get going and the adrenaline starts to kick in you. You don't notice the surroundings and that's the same Even when we play with with eighty eighty thousand spectators. It's you go in a bubble and it's kind of the same year but but there will be moments where it's it's more friendly game in In context of how you can speak to each other and it will never hit the same stress level. I guess because because there's this pressure from outside but but it's it's actually decent. You've had two more days now since since choose their almost two. Today's what what did you make of that game? Now that you've got a bit of hindsight into it. Now that you maybe Phil about him maybe a bit of some videos what you make of it. And what was the most impressive how efficient they are because after you started again really well and you really wouldn't? I often and kimmage schools and then the game changes but this seemed to be so solid metal even when they're not playing well even when the other team is better than them. Just don't concede or the Is Hot as you to against them? It's difficult to give respects to do. What the WHAT BY UNDOING? Without comparing my time in. Copenhagen the Danish leak to to Lico by on kind of what we didn't go at many many championships in a row. And it's just the feeling of team that even even when they don't play good they they still win and they know they're going to win. We as club and seem lack lack because that only comes from winning and of course by is now they have the correct me on moments I think seven championships in the rope and that creates a mentality a culture that that just creates a crazy strong sentiment for for every game still early in the game in that first half there. Were chances at at either end. Did you feel that maybe if it's close Hustle Davies were a little bit less quick Covering on a on Holland. Or maybe if you guys have broken through I do you think. Do you get the central by a that. Might have allowed you to perhaps Push on more or do things that bio-energy so like machines show. Was that mentality that they would've just round on forwards and an found a way to win because that is the impression that that they give off. Yes sure they give that impression off but I think that we have shown the last couple of two years at least for long as I've been here that we are a very difficult to play against especially when the opponent and goes high and wants to create something we in my opinion have one of the best attacks in Europe and the guys that we have They go forward really quick so it might have has given us opportunity definitely but again. It's it's was a game that that we took great pardon and and we. We lack the last percentages. How'd you assess the progress of the team? We do some far. I think is a great manager. We've had him in so knowing really. What the dubbed knees and even before in Germany already etc was was fantastic is very young team. And you're you're one of the orders and you know you sign him. Red China think in in January two to bring a bit of experience when you and other guys because otherwise very young squads and you getting really close to winning the title to go further in the trump is what was missing a bit about for maybe the mentality as you said of of having that winning confidence or the biggest obstacle by for sure you know we played two decent seasons last year was for the most part amazing and yet we didn't clutch and but honestly it's difficult to say what would lax When when I talked about experience it's not about age. It's about knowing how to win. And and that only comes from winning and and we do that very well thing that we've progressed this year in in defense. We've got a woman's in we. Now play with a whether you like to call the three back three or back five does matter but but we we stronger not defensively and the end and they'll know that that makes that secures championships to defend defend. Good and we've shown yet again. The offensively we we are in the top of. There's no question in terms of depth of talent and auctions. You're up there. Part of me feels like I know. Nobody likes to use injuries as excuses and and buying obviously you know without Zuhdi Shula and whatnot and they had injuries to. But there's a part of me that feels that you guys come back after this very long break shortly. We've seen different teams pickup muscular injuries. Maybe just maybe the fact that you have the same three guys you know having to start. The they started both started regained in a row. Upfront all Brandt and and hazard I just wondered you. Heidi had the options that he should have in terms of fully fit mark. Roy's fully fit Jamie Sanjay from the start whether maybe he could have tried something. Different earlier circumstances could have been different than in other words. Are you playing? Did you me play by at the wrong time. Given the situation that you were in and then also I would also have this old question in in midfield as well all. It's it's difficult question you know. We've all had the same basics to to get in this season which is weird. Start up long break before these three matches played what three times fifteen minutes eleven? Be Eleven in six months so so for me. It was a big step to go into to the game. But it's it's as a team wise stress level. It's the same KLOPP. Maybe we've Picked up the a little bit more injuries than than the other teams. And what show show as you say we. We've played with more or less the same team in three games because we don't have any more plays So sure we could have been more fit you know. None of the teams funded fit. We could have had injury but not sitting in complaining about that. No I'm complaining for you. I'm thank you so we we in the first here. In England of the League coming back and plays a going budget training David small groups go to full contact etcetera. I know for us a longtime ago already because Germany was so head of everybody else but but how was it for you and do you understand why and go to contact for? Example is not really doesn't want to train now because you'd be scared of the virus for Dini was a young baby. A home doesn't want to go by training. Do you understand. Did you have some fears is where maybe before you went training two months ago when I was an how was it? Go back sure as as you said. We started out very slowly we we. At one moment we had had a week off Started running at home bikes delivered stuff like that than it was to answer together for for six six and so on and I think that Germany assist on general a very good job including the town and all team in regards of being open about. What's happening then? I don't feel like that in our squad there was any kind of fear to what's getting infected and we checked Two Times a week But I respect and I think in. Pune like this you you. You definitely should respect the fears and consequences that this could have two people family around them so sure. I'm understanding Hoe trainees situation in Angola concern. But far as here we have very little live in quarantine when the season is on. You know it's Games a week so at being. This mentality is difficult but kind of like what we've we've seen before a lot of people are talking about the effects of playing behind closed doors on the match and on the other officiating in I think there was possibly An example of this during the game With the ball tearing incident with with his elbow I was really struck by the fact that You know that it wasn't reviewed by which which is fine but it was also suggested to me that it wasn't reviewed because there was no big reaction from the crowd. No big reaction from the players on the pitch instead you guys got on with it quickly to take the corner and it was suggested that maybe you didn't realize that the ball had come off as all but maybe the referee on a different luck. Can you tell me what what you saw? Did you realize anything? Did you notice that you take came off his back and you know? Do you think having at a place like the signaller. Do not having you know. Eighty thousand people screaming. Get the referee to say. Hey Cologne is something on the look at this again or something festival. I wasn't on the pitch when that happened. I was a went out in the half time and was to not out to see that live happening. But did you see that the time though from the bench? Did you have any idea what had happened? No I was still in A. I took a shower so I wasn't even very difficult for me to say it was live but definitely In my opinion it's clear penalty. No question And of course there's a big difference that is the biggest difference at the moment Compared to to a normal game that is the the Of of the spectators we concerned eighty one thousand spectators. At CIGNA. They're gonNA give us when when did not happy and then everybody will know and of course that also to the to the referee if something is seen as unfair or wrong and we will all quietly be heard so sure. Of course the difference between how how the players in the coach and the rest in chat with the with the spectators. But also how we interact with the referees. We talking a lot more to the referees. Which is a good thing am station in the new book game where the referee was very open about what he was talking to the about. What's a hand bullet again from books? I don't know if it was handle anything but it he. He was very open. About how what you were asking Davar and and day. I remember device Screaming at him because they thought it was like done for him to even talk to the virus and he was just like all right guys. Just shut my mouth. I won't talk to you about anymore. You're welcome but this was the first time we're not going down that road again. So she said this difference between how you can can pussy referendum pressure from the from the spectators a after the defeat on that. There's a gap between you and by an of seven points yesterday not winning. They're also have seven points behind. What's what's the what's the remaining of the season Jew thing you can catch you. He'd be Har- nine as you said because they have that mentality that they're not going to drop seven points between now and the end of the season it'd be very hard so you need to fight for the second place. So where do you stand out when not laying down of course we? We have not decision to maintain festival and then and then we have to get it as close to bias as possible. But show as you say. There's no evidence that fine will Will know seven points in six games even though I would allowed it. There's no no sign of doing that over the last many years. But it's it's tight leak not so tight in in top top now that buying them going in front that we got a around us that we have to to deal win so So we still on for a fight in the I my last question very I don't want to Bring back memories but just as a footballer. Just technically I watched chemicals kicks go over a bunch of times Probably more than you instruct me that he doesn't look up after he gets the ball. You know he takes two or three strides. He never looked to where the goalkeeper is and he just hits the ball and can you just described technically a. Have you ever attempted something like that? Have done stuff like that without looking you just know. Do Remember where he is. I hope he as a move. You just just walk. Who technically what? What goes through when you when you do something like that. It's I don't make enough goals after take very took that I had one in the in. Darby against blundered last minute where I kinda do the same but more with a curve in the in the chip over keyboard and as for me when that happens you you pretty early on what you're going to do and I think can we did as well because it was. It was a ping pong game in their bowl was bouncing around. He didn't have any in the speed in the buddy to too much else but I didn't see it coming. You know it's it's very good players showing a very high level of skill and and you gotta appreciate not at times like this so I think that he. He very deliberated and and saw the deputy but him wasn't written stars. Because I didn't see come question for me as well Tom is a double one quickly. Because it's my it's my last one. One JADON SANCHO. How easy to train with him. And how far do you think you can with the talent that he has and the second one on understand five because as I said before I really like him and hope he stays? I understand that they might be a question mark over. Why do you fill in? What kind of relationship you and maybe addressing house with him and yet to start with. Jaden clearly one of the biggest talent I've I've played with But yeah without telling comes to another pressure and I think he slowly starts to feel that from the England national team and then KLOPP's surrounding in now and And of course it's it's an interesting time. Because to to this point he'd been a talent performing very well forming over a what a talent it's as expected to do and there was always be a next step and that's going to be interesting next career next step in development but I don't see as a player a technical and physical in the any limits for him. You know he could get up there but the question will be in his head and the effort he puts in and of course luck injuries and stuff but comes only looking at his skills and he definitely has what it takes to become one of the five five big players in the world and then all the things around is very difficult to to seek cleaner this moment. If if it's enough you know you see big talents them at go to waste. I wouldn't say I would say he already did enough to prove himself. He's nineteen and you know he is most score points in two to move on and that's amazing but you know he. He should stretch more. Because this definitely no for that The next question with Lucien. He's a he's a great coach festival in and the she likes him I think he said he fits very well. Because we we. We learned last year that we team that performs best when we have fun. And we go out there. And let's see how many goals we can make school schoolteacher. Because he feels like like he's a bill like your teacher that you had as cruel and I the the thing that you learn with him is is quite is quite basic but like you said with a laugh and I mean the way you beat the press in the first half hour against by an. I was amazed because they were coming out. You so strong. And repressing the ball almost iconic playstation if felt like you and the. Who did then Akeem and Rafael on the sides and it was just like being beaming. Does it feel to you? Like is a bit like a schoolteacher. You can say that. And also his his appearances. It's old school. Swiss French approach. He's guiding and shouting in French. Not only that I get what he saying you know when he says it will allow Toma But sure you know we sauce. I see it. He's very concerned about. Especially that part of the game. Play out of the pressure especially against by because lately I'm the best pressing side in Bundesliga The they put a big effort into that made. It makes it very difficult and the way we do it. Is We trained a lot playing out from the goalkeeper's world because we have a football goalkeeper as a big role to play. He has a lot of passes long passes. And and then when we get final you know where the metric is supposed to happen. His philosophies candle voice do what they're best at. I'm not gonNA tell them when to do that. Went to do that very freely and think you see that in in how we play you know if you look at the first Golden Look you we have often goal riddle standing in the central of midfield. We have the union blunt who plays left wing standing on the right side line. And we have Right strike out there and we have accumulated deep so there's going on when we have a lot of players that don't care so much about how it looks from the Batman and I have meths standing behind me in shouting. What what the what is happening to you. But but that's that's that's how we we create good good situation where we are one more than the opponent and then that's kind of an offensive lasted for. Let's not say that we we have you hoping longer so we got joy. Yeah sure you know we been a everything considered my injuries and stuff a great time for me last year. He had a big trust me and now here coming back from injuries. So you know at the moment. I'm really up to dry I did say las personas Another one dot com always those is we gotta ask about about jewelry now and erling whole and by I. I'm struck if you just talk a little bit about Radio in Holland but also I'm just struck by the fact that these are two guys who both had dads who were outstanding international calibre footballers. Just wondering him you you play with a lot of county young footballers that you think that that informs the way the baby the way they train or the way they play the fact that they've you know they basically from the time the I don't know what you who's giving you advice when you were eight years old. But from the time they were little boys they kind of had the best of the best around them advising them helping them grow. Is that something that that you see? In the way that they trainers away that they've Kind of you know especially with with adding kit up. He added twice your size. He's wearing size. Yes no I a young young man that everything to to improve you know this guy is is annoying at times because everything has to be on point and more training more training Eating better eating better and stuff like that so socially I think that he definitely benefited from having people around him probably especially stat knows how things are working in football but on the other hand you know with both of them. It's not like they stand out in that regard that having a famous place. I don't I don't feel that in them in the way that they already have proven or comes from a good family in that regard. I think they've they're both very humble. And you know a taking crazy steps both of them adding of course knicks. I don't even have to mention the stats and and she you as well just coming in. I'm American Kit last year. Travel back and forth. Seventy coming in still has breakthrough to to come but definitely is a player that you you should expect more from because training. He's he's totally unknown mental. You only twenty eight but when you arrive a training one Dan you have Holland and Sancho and Jirina. That does it make you feel older than like all those around you. Unfortunately as starting look young right yeah paycheck and then you haven't seen peace shake without a shadow because this guy is ripped he makes me feel thank you so much though so much for coming time really really kind. And I've been in toes forward all right as wonderful as delay. Me Was your survey even better. Here's some quick hits. That's go Jewish now. I thought The Davi Louise Two year contract at Arsenal after moving. Uh Summer towards the transfer window from Chelsea but James Ali and others are reporting a. It was actually a one year deal with another year option. Maybe you'LL BE GONE BY JUNE THIRTY S. I WANNA get your views on this. I would would it be wise for arsenal to just right off. The Louise's don't think so. I think they should should keep him. Okay I know. He's made mistakes and I knew he sometimes makes mistakes and he will make more mistakes. I can tell you that. Now you've never have too many thirty year old center box VASIC. He's been very important in the dressing room for show and you don't have to keep him in playing every single many of every single game. You've got Saliba coming in from Santa Chen who I think would be amazing in that team. You also have already along with other centrebacks means crisis in worst in holding in Chambas. I think you can. You can look selling holding and Mustafa and you know there's been a bad thing. Keeping Lewis will be a good idea really for for the inference hod on younger players for the how many the dressing room. He's really been very useful for that as when and if I don't know maybe you could go back three and sweeper and maybe it can be very valuable to you. You don't have to start him again. Said every single game but I think he's in fortunate not dressing room for show. I think you always have to look at numbers. He's on very big wages for what he does it. He's on starter wages And I think the question for me question is how much is how much I expect him to play this. You expect him to be starting because if he's not a starter if I if you just dare to be a babysitter than you know maybe I'll get somebody else. The one thing that will change it though is the fact that were the we're June. Thirtieth situation right is contract. According to Ali story expires on June thirtieth. Which would suggest to me that if you don't renew his contract in this he's not going to say yeah. We'll take a two month extension just to please you. Of course now. So do dirty of his deal expires all of a sudden. Are you going to be short? Hounded between now and the end of the season if you know if you WANNA try to get into Europa League or Place or or have given that up he. Now I've got to outfits a board playing center back WHO's will ball playing center back in the squads who can pass the ball who can do nor fifty yards who is good with the ball as a centreback. Obviously he's probably the best one out of the thank you thank you so that means you start. Thank you though. Agree THAT IF YOU'RE NOT GONNA you're not going to be a starter next year. You just keeping him around between now and August to finish the season when you really don't have that much effort. Yeah no yeah. I The show grow by without asking you about Lothar Martinez and Barcelona. I wonder for how long more please just ask you something I interests. Pushing Director Jarrow. Ceo was quite clear on the subject. Wasn't he yeah? And this is the only reason I'm bringing look up again because we allison definitive news came out on Sky Italia inside. Look we are not selling louder. Martinez he has. A clause is a clause that Has An end date at believes July fifty? Want Joy if you want to show up with the money. Convinced him to join you and you can take them away if not. He's not going anywhere so all this nonsense that. Oh let me roll up. Let's see. Let's see what bag players do. We have here that we could dump on the other ones. No maybe we can package Vidal rockets. Raceway are not come over time. Fuck you know I mean I'm sure spilling the contents of over to I mean. Come on now army. No we'll see if he's if he's was word but I think he knows he knows full. Well that either lateral Martinez tantrums and says No. No I WANNA go I WANNA go or or Celona come up with money in double quick do that last summer. It was named mind. Psg PSG said. They were top sellers coming by insane. Okay Wa bobbed cheap Manina with money for name on there like this is not how there's a price you pay. You can't afford you pay you get hit by a car and you go to the guy hang on. Hang on I can give you one of my sons by a Canadian mopeds and my old car and then you buy your car for thirty thousand guys like get out of the door. Buster nothing there. Why are you dishing? Your boy is easy. Non-appearance Boy William it comes out. He says he's come on my now now. Jewels on Monday. We talked about ozone ego and a loan was coming to an end in Shanghai. Shenhua wanted him back but of course nobody including. Us seemed to mention China. Those borders for foreigners so the dude apparently physically can't come back come combine. There's a big contract waiting for him. That but right now it's like okay. He can. I mean you can take the plane maybe and sleep at the airport in in Shanghai your terminal for like I mean most seriously. This is incredible situation that you pointed out weeks ago by saying wait a minute. That could be love issues there for some for some clubs after June thirtieth with contract and this and that and we exactly in it where young doesn't know what to do and like can I go back. I want to go by this contract for me. Chang saying hang on. We have a season to play. We need it for that season. We can't just let him a united two-month I guess I mean look. I'm not an expert on Chinese immigration. emergency immigration law to the pandemic. But I would. I would assume that if you're the Chinese Super League I'M GONNA go out on a limb in suggests that when things got really bad in China mostly foreign players laugh. He didn't stick around right so they are going to be facing the same problem of having to get back into China There's no point starting trying to Super League without all your talk commercially. So I'm sure there'll be some unknown. I think there's parts of the story that we don't know. I'm sure there's some arrangement that you can come to more bad news for Milan as anybody. Movies goes down injured Bhagat. He looks less serious than we first. Thought spades. Yeah it's looking like you know you're the about maybe three or four weeks they basically said. Hey why don't you go home and In-in-in spend seven. Spent some time Austin said No. It's not like it's lots. I'm we'll continue to train and stay fit. It's a weird one because set against the background. is expiring contract I would be very surprised if need on if we don't extend at this stage now maybe comes back scores a goal a game gets in the Champions League institution but I think the second experience has been positive. He's been important for the team. But this team that they say they rebuild every year but now if they do change managers if they do move for magnetic or somebody like that then it really will be a rebuild insight on is last piece of the puzzle. Guy He's not a real guy now. I love the job. Julian NATO's round is doing at Leipzig jewels. That to draw was was a real stinker. That was bad. I mean I didn't expect to play. That went off to be on. I didn't think airtime could hoots. Who take again to that kind of level really because I thought they were outstanding deny despite even the the big mistake by the keeper on the on the sheet gold birth from from knipe sake other no it was an off day. I throw A. I was not even convinced by Nice. Men's tactics changes Was matere Kunia man like I know yeah of a player Kunia life. She didn't blame her left. In January two air time especially since got what seems combined? He's been outstanding in this game in the previous game as well and and Great Times sometimes. Different different choice. You move into the manager. Different style of play different formation is when people trust you have confidence in your faith in you which was not the case united seek and then that's how you flourish but for we. I mean you know we've said before the Creator Law. It's not worrying and stuff like that. They can't have too many games like that. Though because otherwise the end of this unit would be tough. Nigerman was really unhappy after the game wall to create a lot less and I think also it was. It was didn't look sharp again before. I think it was unhappy to just I mean I love my That you'd see what he's doing. He was rotating Off Because you know playing for is is physically very punishing. Yeah by Was so bad that gave away. I mean come on from Peter. Bush is of favorites job and we talked about him on Monday with with geography. As well but do you feel vindicated after bilour where destroyed by four one again that could as easily been seven one. Even as I said many times I don't understand this dude at all and when you have coverage and you got some young players and they have a lot of depth You Chuck everybody forward by some of those defensive rotations. The way they set up it was almost as if like. Oh well. Don't worry we'll just have ninety eight percent possession for will never awfully line so i. I don't understand understand if they work on a defensive pressures how to do it it's I mean there was. You just saw the worst of Tonight and I think you know this is such a feast or famine coach. And you get excited when it complains sudden you know the bottom falls out again but even is replacement a half times. I mean people are wrong center back in back three number. Why are you doing? Abe made no sense to me so ever now. I wasn't GonNa ask Thomas to me about this obvious reasons. You of spoke a bit about losing five of pretty obvious. His future is in doubt because Dortmund Karmani on Hummel's and Sean you know they really came out clearly. said. We are so the title and they're not GonNa win the title. Most likely they're gonNA finish a bazillion points behind Byron again and now what I loved yours low. Trevor Two's has come out and he said that Oh Niko Kovac on his way to replace those same five Hussein five. Apparently got extremely annoyed at this. Is this just trolling and yet? I just think it might be trolling because look let me get. Niko frigging. Kohl's Jack to go sending you if Kovacs replaces loosen. I'm out I quit. I quit football forever ago and do netball. Also this is no way that someone like resort or wherever vascular care. Who can tell me yet? Listen a good idea. Let's go and get Niko Kovac and replace recent five by Cova Duda. This is it for me. This is because Okay Five Russ from froze and and maybe the lack of winning mentality and and and and the I get it I get and certainly last season when they were nine points clear with two months left in the season. They should have on the league more than this year saying. Let's not forget that this team. He's ruthless and Thomas. Delany explaining. Well you talked about your law. You're not gonNA talk about as well and it's not easy to grow and beat this team over thirty four game in a season to be consistent strong all the way through the season so I think there could be a bit of slide too far because I think he's an amazing manager. Clearly I think some of the Nike. Maybe not everyone but to go and find someone better than him now. He's not Niagara Askmen or flick on. Who got gone? Who you may delivery. Bring now okay. Who Can I go now that? He's better than five Oregon. The union chicks pro argument. Better Noah time he is very good. I will tell you twelve months ago would you would you have included. Hansie Flick in somebody. Who's better no nobody? Is Nancy my question who who ran out. They could go and get realistically not equal. Join our club merit gone. It's Germany Germany. This is the country where they take people. Nobody's ever heard of was an an and he stuck today. They stick them into the team at thirty would hurt his novels. My before nine was I don't have a problem with a moving on. Advise I would have a problem if they went for coach. Okay what's likely I just I just think to. You will not be easy. If they're not happy with farm and the good on them will be really to find someone of that calibre this summer. That's all I'm saying. They can do whatever they want. Aleutian farthest caliber. This are very very good money sources. Okay Yeah Okay while you get a little scale yeah then you got the united takeover about Saudi led consortium was supposed to be approved within thirty days governed one hundred and twenty days ago. It's been too long and now the water relation is getting involved. This is not good right now. This isn't this isn't good basically. Obviously there's a lot of opposition to it from from from different quarters. There's the fact that the guy who owned Sheffield United is also Saudi. He's causing all of the Saudi ruler or the defacto savvy were crown prince at the s There's a there's obviously concerns about human rights violations by. There's also since money talks this whole issue is with the out. Q. And A. Pie Reading being sports signal. The fact that the Premier League had filed a legal complaint against the Saudi government The fact that the Saudi government said all along we've got nothing to do with Was be out cuny with just some pirate broadcaster. Wto now issued a ruling next month. But they've come out you know it's it's been leaked that is Saudi. You are running. Be Out you I I said No. It should be out cues Cuba from Columbia. But but weirdly. Y- know they settled their boxes in Saudi Arabia. It's I mean these are all things that Before and what really doesn't add up on this level is why these guys are getting involved on a state level because it is a Saudi sovereign students got billions right to be involved. Do It on a personal level. Say Look I'M GONNA I'M GONNA use my money to finance deal. I'M NOT GONNA go to him. It's not enormous amounts of a couple of hundred million right. Yeah use your personal wells point us. The country's wells and a lot of these problems I think would go away yet. I'll give you the money and we sorted out we can. We can run. That clever can by Amanda. How are pods? I mean I would love you to be united. Ceo. You would do a great job there. Yeah I have to brush up on my majority enough. Jeremy Boga will be coming back to Chelsea in after the scandal year. He's had it's a swallows talk with you. Lintas jewels your thoughts well. He added one the for Season Party. One of the best wingers in in Syria before before we went onto these break. And nothing's been one very clever to gamble on him and give him his chance and then to To sign him permanently. There's talk about between ten and fifty million euros which I think is very good value for him and now maybe another year they can send him on and I think he could have used it. Maybe I would have loved him to see. I would have loved to see him back. Chelsea to be fat as you can see. The argument live so many wingers at Chelsea with going right so Alba. You've got Zayakin. We still have now. You've got Hudson the door you've got them your Israel players when you know you could have. You could have him back for nothing with years of experience Syria. Clearly confidence is higher for him. Maybe you could have had a new bike not sweater. Who We know is a is a is a feeder club for events like people say that nobody don't the truth with Mario Botta Telugu. What's going on now So looks like it's time ratio might be coming to a surprise and shock or not hard. He hasn't appeared interested in training. He missed training entirely than said a doctor's now saying that you know he had a tummy bug The visit him was also the day they was supposed to be tested for. Corona VIRUS AND JOKE. That doesn't like things off his nose You know but there's also the reality that look at it from Mario Side. Gracia are are one of the two bottom teams in. Say the and you know. Why would you WANNA come back? It's the summer this other stuff to do. it's a messy one. Yeah the south about deadliest. Guy Turns thirty August It's like it. Feels like his is careers on blind. The given I in you know a lot of the stuff that people excused when he was younger and then put it down his character difficulty. Whatever you know at some point you know people mature if they want to be. Professional footballers what what could be next for him now. Why like shortly in Syria is not seen done well in the whole of Europe? The there's record go is a very romantic story of linking him to Brazil Goto Goto it. We'd have to be butcher. Fog fogle or or Flamingo whereas Georgia's Sticking around but you know he loves Brazil he likes Brazil and would have to be real apology. Which traffic you know. No beach needs to be. Wouldn't that be awesome minute? It would be it. Would be great. Aren't yours here? We go got Sherwood. You're also bet eleven brought to you by the letter cheese. The did God thank you again for all your teams all your messages etc. We've picked few a Graham Graham off rhyme off the a three formation test taken in goal which I think would be a very popular choice Pierre Ta outdoors and Tina the back to the so todd.

There were so many so many options. Craig Moon Road. Remember member who. Dwi's team try these in double him. It was short on good keep The rest is pretty impressive to goals. So let's go with Thomas to holding goal then Takahiro Tomb Yosu from Bologna at the back. So maybe Thompson from San Jose Terry Thomas from Wimbledon and so must've avars from Benfica at the back Taizhou tennis state and tallied. I watch off from Ludo Garage there as well.

Gab and Juls: Man City's VAR-y Bad Luck

"The hello and welcome to the gab and jules podcast. You should know we are so no introductions needed julian when you're in a wedding this weekend yes in france and a wedding still manage to demand city on cities per game kind of in between speeches but it was cool. It was pouring down john with rain on the saturday which our fellow for my wife's cousin catherine got married to kristoff french guy hey it was beautiful despite the rain and i i wish them a very happy life as family. Have this weird fetish mary french people that no no we can't go to no no need to do that. I was at stamford bridge for forty five minutes. Yesterday i watched the first half and then because i live near the ground i made my way home and that's one of your offish. The komo fetish isn't it. Do you go to to the bridge and then you leave a halftime so you can have yourself a cup of the second half. We're watching second-half at home and also wanted to watch some <hes> <hes> some light big there are other games on there are other events on and had to make dinner unlike anyway. We'll talk some city and spurs as we got delightful mark ogden joining us and then one of my favorite characters on social media <hes> all around nice guy yon august fjortoft talk coming on <hes> he'll be talking some chino from buying from boston to byron and <hes> but other bundesliga and then we talk some arsenal to you were kind of feel like we didn't talk about them in the and some quick hits and some solid wickets right gob. Let's talk about the big game in the premier league this weekend meeting much just to see t. again. Spurs idea to hearts. We've got magden on the run with us. That's down cleeve market minute mock minute. I just want to get your viewing. This was a road grading by manchester city. We'll get v._r. The other stuff but this was. I didn't know this kind of got overshadowed. Spurs were were flattened. Yes yes kind of like the road runner when you said she shots for against three five hundred empress burst dead on target for city to spurs scored two goals and at the end where we looking right to to to get away from it it was fine. I just wanna make sure we're on the increasingly sense coming on. I'm getting really frustrated with those people. Just look at the results and say and i've heard some wool you know but city need to be careful. You can't draw points early. Blah blah blah so let's get mark. Mark obviously made made a point last week for what she got ridiculed on social media yeah what was it about how have city when the next game they win the title automatically something like that that was that was a simplistic view which which i think is kind of taken from another view was the spurs the the next ten game to sell winnable that would have been the ten point lead by the time you get a liberal member nine so but yeah i'll be social. Media takes the very basic interpretation did did you start the game. Did you feel it was just one way that they were all over them and that okay lamilla scored and then lucas morris quote on ahead the smallest player on the pace at that time and did you did you feel watching it in the ground followed that the to to make brief periods and the game three of this person's enough with spurs you fell on how to counter the kind of taking the league. <hes> kinda went beyond <hes>. I would just like steam them. I right people think oh well sip blown it since you're kind of seeing because they dropped due you too we taught them. You know we have to realize that in a in a typical title rights era james the teams draw teams to be able to such freaky seasons seasons eventually. We'll talk about an all modesty in the sense that pick teams take things off other teams and hopefully i'll have to say it'd be great if you know the the the big six even so that the coupons if each other we don't want to see city liverpool bay in everybody outside being plus clearly how many out here on on spurs because i walked this game on on the television and i thought city were very very good <hes> but and i i couldn't work out whether are there some serious deficiencies in in spurs performance or was. It just hats off to city because it's not normal concede thirty shots and to be in this position. I mean i know city. Were brilliant but is it really. I mean were you disappointed. In tottenham as i was yet yeah a little bit ajit <hes> fly you know you know from hurricane to the defensive slightly off pace. I mean obviously the left but we've done. I think donny rose about two hundred placing because they couldn't with him. <hes> midfield ericsson's head isn't in the right place. There's a few occasions where it didn't have that same kind of speed assault later anne kane like you say anything bringing to the table so i mean what the the habit going and <hes> you know the the investor a- belly look good if touchy but this is a team that to me like they were strongly the politics of jigsaw together and maybe obviously data halley still missing son was with this team that needs a bit more new blood a edmund u._n._h. New ideas and look at it a little bit same each one of the guys being to bring a new blood was was carl walker peterson since he's been there but obviously where i i don't worry surgery a stimulant ninety step based show you bring up the fullbacks who who are important in the system play and you got danny rose who obviously they tried to get rid of every which way they they won't even take him on toys. We could sort out his future elsewhere. I don't know what's up with this guy. How many people i mean he must have an enormous opinion of himself going back to you know talking with his contract and whatever but you still stuck with him earlier ben davies whose okay but on the other flank are they really going into the season with was worry and walker peter's. That seems like one is a gamble and the other one is a little bit unhinged. Well yeah and you know if you have a great unless you you'd think it says what speaking to the stability and consistency that would have been the best option so yeah. I'm not convinced you walk copies of over the weekend from you know wanted to i. I don't think you can look associated. Account will compete and that's all you can kind of get on the street now. Just game folks the gangs and option but yeah to not dry right options isn't it and <hes> until january because i play a lot better still lab while they die of happens every time and and he's you know he's on the bench of the week and it just seems to have a permanent place. Thanks doesn't really do much when it comes off the new book that just need revolution. It's all you know enough. <hes> you know full five years now and is being up to six years and just honestly made a bit of a joel. Maybe maybe you know leaving in the semi obeying best all around not because he's he's pulled my job because i think he's working for your articles and after before you is the unless you stop speaking hood and the multiplication diminishes and taunted lightly need something like a adult of lightning just to kind we're going to get. I was surprised that but song instead on the bench the whole the whole gamut. I don't get it on sundays loving from perch. I have to say <hes>. It's two games in google. Yoris has had to make eleven saves already which is more than any other goalkeeper in the league and i think manchester city to be fair i know but still did you know you also played aston villa and you know it's like he eleven saving two games. It's just i think he's ali- defensively like we've been saying. They're far off from from being saudi enough to try to get to where they want to be. I let's let's touch on the refereeing a miserable get the big thing at the end but the first first one not giving rodrigue lamelo andrology anybody here think that was not a foul no okay good so should have been found so then the question jim because people are like oh well why didn't v._r. Intervene i'm gonna throw this guy saying remember. The primarily made such a point coming into we're going to have a really high bar for v._r. Decisions decisions and so on and wondering kinda shoot themselves in the foot on that one because that was one where at at a minimum you ask michael oliver. Take another look at it. There's no way i think michael oliver could have seen that clearly and maybe just didn't know and this is why would be important to know what did the v._a._r. Tell oliver ever did he. Just look at it and see like all the bars not high enough. You might not give it. I i don't get it. This isn't the point. I mean at the very least that is he's. The kind of thing that michael oliver should look at right. The somerset needs to solve it feels like brexit the moment deal people taken out of it what they want to. Hey what they want to believe and this is why. I should be like this now. I think that guy on cricket or the way tomorrow. I'm assuming that french anytime we we didn't take the fray it was you can pay. They come action between the measure they they can do. It was very clear. <hes> you know football coppola swear swearing well. Not really you know so why the might of the referee and say <hes> penalty in santa bulbs comes up made. What do you think it helps. It helps it definitely. Would i mean i i think i don't know that we can do it in football in real time the way it is with cricket rugby the different sports the reality is people get things wrong cricket rugby their scandals in cricket and rugby. Nobody he goes and burns the house down but after the game at least they should explain it after the game they should say like hey. This is why it didn't go to non field review. You can stop the one of the big problems at the end of the weekend. Which i thought was it was an issue was that there was no announcement a kind of an all the wait kind of old trafford. You're not you don't big screen so every time they made over. The tunnel is ridiculous. Yeah check on a side side access twenty seconds. Let's check complete north side. They actually just celebrating the goal instincts insult to the big screen. It's just celebrate and it was an audio message. It will survey people don't realize what's going on because he was at least a minute before people realized that the goal is being viewed him was disallowed. It was just like the situation last year. When the whole ground celebrates it and you know the the game was over. Pull back then she'll saying it is time i'll go because the victory intelligent as you've transitioned into the second. They are point the one. That's dominated things <hes> <hes>. I think we're all in agreement on the communication. I don't quite understand why that's so difficult to figure out permanently said this jewels. This is down to a law change and the and this is the fact that you cannot score and it originally happened actually because of i think it was really bully last year scoring with his hand do korea. I think i'd want to <hes> and the idea is because of a quirk. The laws of the game never actually said oh look. If it's an accidental handball promotion count so they came out and they said let's address this if you if even if it's accidental handball if it leads to a goal and you gain an advantage of it to score then it will be not the goal will be struck off <hes>. That's obviously what happened here with laporte combination of the a. r. and the new rule means people have conflicted as the two. I don't think it's v._r. Issue <hes> people have said well without the i it wouldn't have been spotted. I don't know i mean i think a good refereeing. You need good lines. When might well have spotted at the ball came off laporte arm. <hes> are you on board with the spirit of the law. I mean this is really absurd. I think in certain cases it is and this one certainly i think was completely absurd. I think the the changed it because it was it was no clear enough in the first place but they've made it clearer for shaw. Whatever the hand with a handball negotions instead the once again i think he's sort about the discern cases discern context where this would apply and this will apply find and there's others were like like i believe in the one on saturday where you can't give that against city. I'm sorry you can't give them against. City doesn't the bill if he doesn't doesn't brush one only brushes rushes off la paz arm and settled pizzas arm directions because it doesn't reach zeus and the goal isn't scored okay but it would have been assembled his hip. I mean the is is the ways jump in. There's no way just a bounces off him. White apologies buddies no responsible of that's fine. I think that they did it happen twice a week. Which is the free but it's not gonna happen. I became somebody dominate at least to go. I mean the biggest problem the other thing they combo really starting fish like him. Oh there's nothing to do with that. It's just the game so assigned to that change but i mean that's an argument for another time before we oughta go one final title thing obviously strongly mooted move <hes> alexis sanchez going to inter milan on loan. Some numbers coming hang out this morning. It's going to be something like two million euros and united <hes> pay half wages. Which of course i believe to be somewhere between three hundred. Hundred fifty thousand pounds a week and half a million pounds a week augie. I smell a little rat here because the way that the terms terms of this deal seemed to strongly favor inter united paying half his wages when they're down to just marcial al rashed and then you get into chong greenwood territory upfront seems odd to me especially after the window closes. What's your sense. Yeah i agree. I wanted to teach you try again with sanchez and just try to reduce and give us a bit more love just try and make it work either talented players to play. You can gabriel score twenty goes. I think the difference between him and mccarthy was the cocker this kind of money and i could strike cookie however so she he's gonna go you know that they're gonna have to take it because of the painting but let let's get those ways talking about those things on include incentives and bonuses onus is mojave and he's not taking money balances ultra in terms of anything so i think he's awesome eagles so desperate to get away your right right so january because russia damasio gets injured or bulk age absolutely nobody coming to school goes there already operating on a very kind of basis as skeletons strikers none of my kind of experience of a hard season the top level i mean they have. They haven't got that kind of seasoned. It professionals the reason why rain brought in two years just because he felt that they were both too young and they ask you guys. I mean russia's twenty-one marshalls what twenty two the not very very old so you need somebody that has been around the block a little bit and even basic either. Let's go up and he goes recently. I think he's a crazy situation by the blanco it really is. I'm with you. I don't think this makes little sense of funny thing. Jewels <hes> front page says like the dream couple and it shows lukaku who celebrating with alexa censures presumably one of the few goals sanchez scored the stupid thing in this and i appreciate these two clubs are not sort of the epitome of of sort of best practice and good governance but damn y'all had all summer to get this deal done if you wanted it so badly sadly. I direct this at both of them. I don't know maybe massive can of worms cheers augie guys thanks. I'll get gob joined to hear my useless facts of the week. Oh is this following on from the kurt. Happy zuma needs of got another useless facts. Did you know that joel concetta an emmerick laporte more to a teammates immensity brothers nope they could have been i guess but no they were born on exact same day and not being twins obviously may twenty seven thousand nine hundred four and johnstone's your favorite player ever is born the following day melatonin eight hundred nine hundred four incredible. I mean no. I mean seriously there's not many the teammates in the seventeen. We'll bone exact same day like sam day simone samir everything no that is a fad. Where else do you use this level full of of insight. Unfortunately i was trying to see if there was a way to <hes> tied in with john claude van don yeah because we haven't we we have had a few messages by the way i you know twitter by that i was i was going through my tv and all of a sudden. I see it appear on the ep double impact <hes> tom but it wasn't that it was some other stupid that show america screw this budget. We're going to talk about a big move. That happened this weekend. We talked about for for awhile almost since he arrived at camp now philippe coutinho moving from a barcelona to <hes> to byron. It's a one year loan deal. <hes> <hes> the price the loan fee bit lower than than we saw about eight and a half a million euros a year nearly ten million dollars <hes> although hello byron paying all his wages roundabout <hes> twenty five twenty six million dollars which is a lot <hes> and an option to buy a year's time for one hundred twenty million euros when he'll beat the tender age of twenty eight <hes> when i look at this from a barcelona perspective and from a buying perspective who better to do this than a man. I don't need no introduction yon august your if you don't know who he is. Hang your head in shame because he is a stellar <hes> analyst for a visa and <hes> and others long career playing in in in england. I believe it's four different clubs in five different in five years. Here's all of them. Northern i might add <hes> also knows his bundesliga inside out <hes> welcome john. Thank you very much and i played in germany. I play the nine one one again on high with a great monday hijacked by the way because we'd be remiss we've mentioned who are on the verge <unk> of signing another tall handsome center forward just much like you john bostock. I i wanna. I don't wanna get your view on this first one from from the buy in perspective 'cause i'm not sure this deal is quite as clever as it seems but before i tell you you why are you on board with this. I understand what you say ain't gonna. I'm i'm a bit there as well because remember back in around april may only her no so it's the dunk early on of five music you said if you do all the players we have lined up. You can't believe who they've lined up. Turn off. They get from madrid okay. They get covered. I think you overestimate your player. I would love to play against nevada. Is one of these world co-champion not bad but he's not that kind of defender. I love to play. I i love to play a game in the old days. On now they end up being getting botanic onto tonic in the transfer windows the end of the transfer window and they ending up taking the twenty seven year old man on loan they take a thirty year the old man from croatia which on loan although he knows german food from his timing involves endorsement but i i don't think this is as great d. He lives everybody says is is buying who want to compete with the best in the world and they're taking a substitute a reserve from barcelona. I studied with hamas rodriguez couple of three years ago. He wasn't even good enough for their squad for for the champions league final so i seen germany money i i read all the german papers and magazines or whatever it's on net. They just want us to sell this as a great great star. Come to germany. I agree <hes> how are here too because obviously niko kovac came under a lot of criticism in the low season there was a question about whether he would keep his job or not now chino lands on his doorstep and i'm trying to figure out how they're going to play because you either playing on the wing or you play them in the hall. If you put them in the whole then it means you have to put thomas muller on the wing which isn't really <music> a great idea in my opinion or and you put coutihno on the wing you risk getting what we had last year at barcelona. Which is him not tracking hacking baqi being demotivated. It's a bit like hamas right. I mean you you brought them up before where yeah good player but really know how to handle him they basically brought him in when when janaki was still there and then of course got destroyed away so do you think is on board with this. I think colleges on board with they've because that part of a team they have a sports or it can salama pitch cool is inexperience and then you have an i say this in a compliment the tuma puts on the balcony room again who's statler by the way for for but i love the two of them and what the job he has done <hes> for buying but you know when i see successful teams when i've seen successful manager when i see successful companies companies what they do. Is they bring in players. They need by playoffs or do you buy a team. I agree with you. He's it what they need. Now is a guy who come in two different positions. Okay is that the guy we need. Now is that for the new by is that for by i am challenging for for the champions league because champions the is the standard for buying munich because although the other teams try their best <hes> at the end of the day they will end up winning it so would will this. It was this play and make them better. I mean continue is probably <hes> <hes>. I love for example. I love speedy cars but in the winter time say no way they're bad although they are great cars icon used newstalk and it's no by a speeding car and that's a feeling i get some by coke. I suggest a snowmobile myself yeah exactly the thing about katina but the loan is when you when you club and you end up having plays on luxurious style cooking u. s. really that you've messed up your whole your whole transfer a window because for anything else which was so as the planning where where when did the and and work our okay okay. This is the position we need to strengthen this. We can get this is our choice number one and then the plan b. and the plans he alone this even for parallel coutinho even worse person soon to be fat. He's just not okay. We got nothing. We literally have nothing. There's only ten days to go. Let's you over can do as a loon because we know show about the players. Let's do this and i think from buying points of view and the biggest dot. It's just it's just a disgrace would you what about from from barsha point of view because kia drap just did themselves the huge favor <hes> coming in chino's future. There was obviously going to be in doubt. Maybe they tried to send into your friends at a party man. Maybe not <hes> and in the end kia wins again. He finds them a big champions. League club gets them another lifeline. I'd like to hear from both of you starting jewels. This is good from the barcelona luna perspective right. They wanted to get rid of him so that did that. They found club who was willing somehow to pay the whole wages as like. You said he's around twenty five million dollars. Yes <music> so it's a lot of money for someone. Coutinho good akia not sued i think for the name aside guy and he's returned to bounce not because katina was i leave the only player where both to clubs p._g._n. Botswana were agreeing on okay. Let's include him in the deal and i think here anquetil himself probably were bored of just is being seized seeing as a currency and saying you know and there's a point where rocky to each other similar reactions in i'm no currency you know you don't swap me this from one up to another. I think maybe the same and and i think this is very damaging for the whole name our saga before basra now they got what they wanted they wanted him out of the club and got rid of him for books and it did for one year yon i mean obviously they spent big unlikes diong and greenman but from barcelona you're celebrating celebrating because you got yourself a bit of a lifeline for twelve months right absolutely and i think now at the end of the transfer window for any club is who thinks i i think they would they would wait for that and on bus lana being clever enough to understand that by immunity need player and i think that's what we discussed early because visit great tiny for bundesliga. You have some brazilian a twenty seven year old. He wasn't tastic for political. Do these is a good deal but i think for good deals in those terms but i think that that's not done if we can say that after spending a hundred and forty five billion euro on the first place to bench but now now they are making a big up for that. I think that is a is a good t- <hes> they call them. It's also for bustling maybe to prepare to to to get the a big one in the in the transfer window now nighmare good. I have <hes> a more healthy discussion in the in the boardroom for that so this is a good deal for them and also also also for the player because he wants to play football on. You couldn't see him get so many games for for barcelona so so i think that the only one you can can kinda. I know criticized by munich. They gotta play that they need always. He's a great player but he's out of play at a need so i think both player he's done okay. He's coming coming to to a team with sunshine. He will do well independence like i think he will getting scared gold. I'm not sure that he will make them even more contender for <unk> league trophy jahns so god this custody earlier where you play him if coverage and everything my question to you is more do you think that he's game and he's personality and you know he's he's quality teas. I'll suited to the bundesliga into the pace over and you know to into the way teams are playing there and none of dollars you think he might struggle to adopt any my struggled to to make his mark in the league. I think that continue you know if you ask them that question. Before he went to liverpool <hes> he went to liverpool speedy apprenticeship going to live with a bit different than what it was used i do he would come to a club very structured. Although being xy hollywood i love to say to them very good organized club and everything everything is there for them to do perform and also we determine <hes> german bundesliga there there are space up to space where he will get the <hes> get gaffed bowl. I'm not more wondering i worked friday on on the on the game they had against the. I'm more like like you say. Star west should should it took him. We'll put them just behind. Those happy said that where is the replace. I mean they must go to church every day in munich because of the big time struggling so they have to pray for that but where do you put continue will let them put to holding players will put him on there. In the wings ratchet camila go she would lead to two behind the strikers so i think that makes corvettes more flexible but i think when you put the starting eleven up continued. It's a play so i don't think that either is perfect for bike show but you if you use it right if then he will have the more flexible team but i can't see continues sitting on a bench good we offer although although he's alone but it's a hell of a lot of money when you i eleven million euros whatever was on that by takeover so you have to play a young whenever you go but i i just wanna get you because obviously this weekend we we saw big wins for leipzig in dortmund dortmund. I thought had a really good <hes> really good transfer window. You know the players. They lost the repairs. They could lose. I thought they still have a ton of depth except maybe at centre forward as you believe that that goodson royce can <hes> can do the job there <hes> but deep we're gonna see a legitimate race between these three teams in the bundesliga this year yeah right the leipzig dortmund and byron right. Please tell me that's the case i would love to. I don't want to hate by trial. I love the see them whitney last year as well well but what i see the the only advantage and maybe that is the most important advances by is the culture winning trophies office so when niko kovac is there last year all the troubles they had they ended up winning the double and they just did it for bad for good habits. They just on offer yes okay. We are quarreling but we we need to try to trump the trophies and if you saw harbor last year when when he was leading when when someone one skulk about him win the trophy i it looks like he's turning through some kind of allergy allergy against trophies and you need that kind of culture in your club. I think that's why my summer or sore are working very closely mostly on to try to get him to understand that yes. We have a great time to be great characters. In the same people love love to watch us at the end of the day we have to win the trophy so if they can get that culture in i'm not sure that <hes> nagas man and she's she there. I expect him to take another step to develop that team and go into being main contender also for the eight league undergoes money there as well so. I think that it's quite an interesting see but but by winning winning winning winning dr is like celtic celtic celtic so so we have to change that attitude that's what my homers getting hammered yanni's was so that was also for that winning mentality and and everything and there's a shocker by an immune again by the way on saturday and a shocker which which will be interesting. I think all right stay tuned john. Thank you so much for your time. Thank you thanks. We were gonna talk a little bit of arsenal but do you think people care. I think people the first time in ten years they win the i pretty much of a season. I think it's a bios. Look really good and you know you know him because you name in spain and you saw him with the spending the twenty one teams although he's twenty three but he was paying the spin on the twenty one team in the euro is in the summer but you know <hes> but he he was keen in them winning the u._s. Again and i thought it was just outstanding on on his on his first star home debut as well on saturday against burnley we will occur nelson again aboard with the m revolution that i like you know pip as not ready just yet and <hes> does she has hired some some some problems and there's other the reasons why amri has faith in nelson and we look to very very talented young players and the lockdown jen helped me hear restyle senate believe last year was on loan at hof at high so it's not like he was on loan <unk> madrid i think he he played a little bad and he kept coming off the bench and stuff willett. I don't know i mean it's great when you see that but i'm just wondering if i'm rowson yankee or cronk maybe a lot wealthier than i am. I think myself wait a minute. You made us go and spend all this money on pepe. We're we're still stuck with mickey olson l- we sold the one younger guy we had any welby if we had these guys all along and actually you raoul actually know if i'm calling you. Why did you buy -tarian when we had when we had <hes> will can nelson coming through <hes> so or is this this just kind of we see them now. We won't be seen these guys again. <hes> so a guy i this is my impression of roles in god. I'll tell you <hes> seagulls gob. I'll tell you know i remember torrero last season every give him a bit of time to adopt and you know. I think that six seven games before we started in the primary i think pay is the same as good as he's training and continuing. Look very good evening at times. Emmy phillies complained ready for a start and food seventy minutes in permits yeah. That's why i think you know uh and there's nothing there's nothing wrong playing nelson and wheelock don't forget that the ideas well you know from a punt a club some of these two try giving value to these zone play from the academy lucky welby and if that means setting them for thirty five or forty million pounds some points then so bad because what about the amboise mickey suit did. Does he have any kind of plan for them or is he just aren't. They basically like a write off. You need the experience you you know you. We needed to stand sitting in the stands. You know been tough. Stop the season for for for reasons donald fubo reasons and why what happened and what do you know he's the whole arch and you know what happened with when <hes> some folks still you know sky and sky and everything and for mickey tyron. The problem with nicotine is the consistency. I think that he's a very talented player is all about the consistency and through the whole season but what are those through the through one game and he will be be more consistent and the just not showing office telling them and then it would be much better but at least like obama young a firing already which is good three goes between them already. There are fifty last season and what's abayas can bring to that team. I think he's he's been promising even if defensively still is to love issues as we saw on saturday if everybody's fit for arsenal's fullbacks bavin teeny and soon so again maitland niles class matched his squad got the thinking yeah yeah i think so and if louise or get injured who's the third china back holding chambas i think holding before the staffing yeah i think we stuffy gonna go yeah. We'll go before that there are things to sort out defensively and you know we you and i both believe that w is probably better in the box within a buck a buck four and today the i think bernie sixteen shots on goal on saga and by the way it's absurd actually he's into kind of the typical guy who likes to got a bit of the surgery in the sense that if he's not playing for your team he just looked like an absolute something that has four letters and rhymes with yeah. I i mean honestly like me love voice. He's gotta be horrible. I so we're basically saying about arsenal. Aw is david inherited this sub optimal situation with all the money tied up into ozal and mickey some some degree. I've written this before but the fact that will make you album younger like or roughly the same age all in their late twenties early thirties all make a ton of money is not good and they're still limited. I mean they have serious financial restrictions and they're trying to turn around as best they can. That's basically what but talk talk. Four is just fight on the season is like the hard they need money to have to do to qualify for the champions league and i think a lot of investment medi summer summer why the structure of the days and they were quite clever on some of our unloved those deals has to lead to them finishing in the top four and i know the play liverpool next weekend and they might get battered like they were last year or they'll be interesting to see how much emory has learned from the heavy defeat less last year just after christmas onfield <hes> h huge desk for them and i think they're still you know there. There's something good they're growing so let's see present a chance to finish talk for. I think i believe in them. Sixty sixty five thirty five sixty five percent chance they finish top four which means you believe that there clearly better than chelsea and united in our propel. I ain't going that high not at all. What's what's your percentage almost thirty okay. Let's say fifty between the two of us. I think goodness deal. Give have a safety because i don't know maybe the bottom falls out of spurs. All divide elden erickson are sold before the window ends and put schettino leads to become a monk and maybe they drop out but i just think there's so much that can go wrong and i love this biosteel and whatever else but i think starting from a really really rough situation you're talking hold on one leg now and we'll still rob holding before he got chambers. Let's not forget what he did. Last season forget chambers chambers beta midfielder played fullback. I colonel can you can do a job at centre-half. I just don't you know i don't know i share don't shut right now for this. Let's move onto some quick hits. Let's talk about your favorite subject. Kind of this was a rough night for peres your man beaten iran to one and again no neymar jewels even to says that if he's not gonna play they need help. They need more players. What happens next oh man. I don't know i need help myself as well with a club. They were bad add last night there. Were there were so bad. They were beaten by a sixteen year old genius midfield for which awards come of inga who would mention in next week or the week off remember his name. I'm loving how mouthing really do remember his name because he's something something special however appears you. We're bad still no name with katina going to discuss at length on the today that makes it even more complicated with bosnia they waiting on remedied who are moving reina s._m._s. Everything is a mess. This month is a mess for an and i'm just already fed up and they tend to go in the other day. They were full strength except for harare era and kim palm bay but i mean i guess care was out too but in terms of attacking player like this is it you got your sarah that you so badly want promoting the drugs. They still bloodied. I mean and to hold to who we we've given love life and the love love and he goes backfire and you're thinking why are you doing. You haven't played backfire taught all summer. You're talking to the chief to release the here. I know enough to muster. Hold the please t._t. Just help yourself man. Just don't do anything stupid like that whenever she's eighteen see i think of boy wonder how many people there no that is. I didn't know anything about teaboy. I'll inquire remedied open with a victory over to center vigo and gareth belly starts gob as accused may the president what happened there or if it's a mutual interest societies dan himself l. saying like now he's he'll be staying <hes> he makes too much money. Nobody thinks he's worth that money so nobody will pay him. In those wages he himself won't take a pay cut to leave and raw madrid said fine. You know we're we're stuck with them might as well play him. <hes> it was weird game because you figure when away to celta vigo that's the that's good but it felt a lot like the old round madrid i think of the starters actually played in the champions league final <hes> the one in milan in two thousand fifteen show which was a dense first one so i. I thought you know it fell old school. <hes> experienced counted tony crows. I thought was really good moderates until stupidly sent off. I want to see what happens when the big boys comes come back but i will say this about the dan. He didn't have to pay bail. Yeah sure hazard was out but you know he started east. Go when lucas vasquez and and hamas you know he could've continued going and needling gareth but he didn't do that. Do you think they're gonna play golf versus together. I wish that point on a visit danna golfer now is not the maybe you know his new love and with gareth. I don't think so not just after this week. Capucci is on pace to score seventy six goals this season in the premier league needless to say that would be a record that would be more than dixie dean who wanted sixty five back in the the author paul league <hes> joel's i'm assuming he probably will regress to the statistical me can you please waxed lyrical about the ultimate cult hero so this season and with pleasure and give you a bit of background on on who is on who team who is <hes> he arrived in in which free from brumby which is in denmark doc police freddie things now he's in sweden <hes> he is called loads of course there are more than seventeen four years rather than a free daniel faulkner. I really wanted him in always remember him from when you pay childcare a few years before he played badly pre kooky era right before when you kinda relaunch his career he was a celtic where he was bad. Yeah it was a shocker where he was really and then. When he was very young he was in seville. People thought thought he was going to be good but then he was training his way twenty nine goals in the championship last year and then enough people okay he can do in the championship on wins the night in sheffield wednesday very calm do it again sliver putting the premier league econ against newcastle in the premier league and he did. I think he's the first player to score four goals in. He's i two premier league matches in his career. No-one no-one has never done before him and you know what i was at the liverpool game the for the previous weekend and though he's movement was standing any school one goal that night it could easily two maybe three because he's movement just creating the chances is is is incredible. If you go to see him live it just just don't watch the rest of the game just him because he's really fantastic with his movement like we said he's twenty nine so he's a he's a late bloomer in many ways but i think deserves a lot of the praises these days having so far even if he doesn't last because the next games as chelsea wisdom and city so let's see how many scores in in the three games by the way this isn't on the script a little aside on chelsea <hes> i went to watch against leicester remember last season all the mopeds all the expo bleeding talking heads and the rest of the sheep going and skewering yet weird marie society for playing george in front of the back four and playing conte on on the side of the re runs out of a position blah blah where they playing oh the front of the buck full for georgina in position for content and they had to do with an english manager. Yes yes just checking. Can you tell me why you have time to go second half a home. You want your sofa or because it had to do so you first half and then you live near the ground. I know i can i can do that. I was backed by <hes> by the stars right. This has been the center of the unwanted star more riccardi. You see that inter even enough to contest says he doesn't want him. Gob house still possible because is i think people want them. Maybe but they want him on on their terms that are kind of overrating. Maybe the market farm and i'm gonna make a bold prediction here. There's a very limited number of places where he can go at this stage. <hes> gieco has renewed with <hes> with roma so had that ain't happening happening. <hes> i'm not sure napoli love him as much as some people think and also spent money on chucky lozano the only way he moves to napalese in a mythic plus money money deal. I don't see why why carlo would do that. <hes> and you've got to get rid of too many players they have magic are surely i mean it would be too grotesque to contemplate e wayne going the other way. Would you see with content. That'll work breakable prediction and say you know what maybe in the end because these days and maybe in the end kind of wakes up and says i have lukaku who's the size of a building. I have maybe alexis sanchez. Maybe not you're alive body other than you have to go for it. Let's make this day is above all a pragmatist. Maybe we'll make the two wins and two by overcoming southampton two one despite a wobbly moment from adriana and when i pointed this out <hes> people were like oh alison said them to my yeah. Okay wash your mouth out before you mentioned i. I like super nice guy. I even thought tights whatever they worked for. Him would have worked on other players. <hes> come on anyway jewels kebir to the mid week supercup <hes> club dropped henderson and for being able to the bench is starting rotation that we're going to necessarily you see all season like a bunch of revolving doors field yen we i think we said last week how important those positions for club for the whole rhythm of the team in doing doing everything that material and that's why you need nosov special profiles to play there for him. You know like we can pretty much play anyway in amid fake aac ford's other by anywhere so i think we'd see a loved that rotation more than last season. Maybe we've seen already this season as you said however i do think that these team a strong without for bean with being. I know he's not perfect. He's twenty five so he's not the youngest based in very young in a sense he's been declared for only a second season then but i do believe that he he brings something very much different solve steel and and you know and and spirit that others don't so i think we loved tation but i do think that especially for the kiki tub games. I think i've been thinking with klopp. He's like the his style of play requires a lot of chemistry and cohesion obviously so that's why you wouldn't want to rotate but he's had these guys for so long than in some ways a level of interchangeability to it and i think if they run more it also take some of the pressure off the front three right marshall patino said that he thinks the primarily premier gona sorry regret agreeing to close the transfer window at the start of the season three weeks before everybody he s got on the first time he's mowing the by that is more than again at the weekend you think he's right of course he's fair granted especially the drinks especially spurs imagine imagine you've got the other viral ericsson situation going on imagine if you could sell those guys and bring somebody else in rather than you know especially in tottenham case ah that's the reality yeah. That's global marketplace. I think you know unless all the other leagues move and i'm they won't nor show day because you know some of these start at the end of august i i think it does put primarily clubs at a at a severe disadvantage. You know between between injuries between things not working out <hes>. I thought it was a weird deal almost like a money saving deal by some managers to begin with but i think it's going to it's going to hurt them competitively. Yeah that's all we have time for today. Bob thank you for today. Great show thanks to guest as well yen an agay. We'll be back next week. Yeah well first of all. I noticed that you didn't pronounce your last name gino. What is folk off. You're not allowed to say that on podcast. What cash flow is sorry august. I apologize. He's i'm just young much younger than you yet. Stop it <hes> but yeah no check him out on on social media <hes> brilliant guy great career <hes> you're not peer next week argue how taking advantage of the bank holiday i mean i mean it's actually today's tuscany wow lucky man obviously <hes> are we make this point lights that in england they have. This weird thing moved here. Ooh it's a monday <hes> you know. Most places would probably call ended summer and u._s. Labor day or whatever but he's got a holiday like that but they call it bank holiday because this country's ultimately run by banks and financial institutions probably why is it called a bank holiday so good question she. I'd ask her producer freddie but he's only half english rush australians of course west. I know these expert on skin cancer that kind of stuff right and kangaroos there you go oh so you're not with us that day. I'm sorry i've been listening. We'll be getting god what we can somebody else in <hes> i think probably stuart robson not so then cheery and we're trying to get him say vangere as many times as possible of course all the show. My overrun under is five so that's awesome till next time.

Villa Are Going Up

"Welcome into the ESPN FC studios this Monday edition of the show longtime here in studio on the Mona no, Steve Nichol Sebastian sell us, are we will be joined throughout the show as well by our good friend, wrath Han Eckstein someone of I should say high class tape. Oh, really? Oh, yeah. Oklahoma meals in Russia with, with Ravitz fitting that we have in for today's show because it was the richest match in all of football. The promotion playoff, Aston Villa, a beating Darby county, AMRO Ghazi John McGinn the goal spores for villa Martin. Waghorn gets one that late for Darby county. Even see outmuscle fill up shot, villa. But in the end, it's Aston Villa that earns promotion the last spot in next year's from your leap. All right. C villa. Pretty prohibitive, favourite going into this one close matches at a fair just result for you. I think she'll I think the best team overall, Darby Darby really for me didn't come alive until the clothing stays the wait till the to know again. They did it against Leeds and one of the playoff games, and the came from you can't expect to keep doing and for me. Yes, I villa more stable site. I think not just an appeal, but June course of the season, they've been better overall Allah, what I saw from both teams is the nerves of what the moment was all about. Because we didn't really see the best of either of our Darby for that matter, villa, there were moments in which perhaps, they could have been cleaner with the ball and made it a lot more comfortable for them towards the end. And you found that they're recounting simply because of the desperation of having to do something, the last twenty twenty five minutes or so they're pushing forward disorganized. They just trying to get something into the bugs see what happens they get a goal out of that. And from then on, was hanging on and I mean, barely hanging on to the point to where you're saying kind of gets a goal here and they go into extra-time this is this is a whole different story, but did enough and that's all they care about they'll the Premier League next year. We'll see you guys later, our last image villain. The Premier Li is quite pathetic. So years. They were relegated mid April this huge fan base. Rich ownership. You think they can stay up next season. If they don't add to this, starting live, never mind, the squad then they were sway back. Don't listen, the truth is, as they have pretty much championship players playing in the championship who are going to go into the Premier League. And if they stick with that it's not going to be enough, people keep throwing wolves around wolves had Premier League players playing in the championship. That's the best way for me to describe it. So they have to go out and spend, and if these spend spend wisely so they have to get those two things to into this site. Otherwise, they will come straight, by the thing that I think was important here from us Avila's perspective was the momentum that they generated late in the season to get into this playoff position. And then carrying on that momentum onto here, there were moments in which villa essentially had to win or ELLs, and they did that for a couple of months straight, and they haven't loss against. We're, we're talking since March. And so it gives you an idea of how good they have been when they needed to be good today. Not great, but good enough. Manager who's untested the primarily benefit task job coming in halfway through the season. But has noise speeding along the big boys. Yeah. Speaking managers, the other side of this is Frank Lampard, the kind of common thought is that if Darby didn't get promotion, he might end up taking over the job at Chelsea raff. We bring you in here now that we know Darby isn't going up. Is this more likely? Well, he in self said, it's no more or no less likely. He was saying, look into sit down with my chairman, discuss. What's happening season? Avid contract here. And of course, the subtext is that sorry still there. I mean, the joke might not be available. What is true? I think is that Chelsea if contingency needs to be made if Sarah gets an offer from even inventors say okay, here's the money for the release close, then think he would be very much in the conversation as it is, I think, and other managers have shown this he benefits from the fact that there is at least interest on the other side, and that will help him think to have that conversation with the chairman to see, you know, how much money is available for next year where we going, so he's in a great position, but I think Chelsea, don't necessarily want to point him because it would mean leaving Lee losing sorry at this point. Let's speculate a little bit. Oh, hey, that's something, we hypothetically, sorry leaves Lampert, the right choice for Chelsea. No. What of show? Sure. So sky to green, green. Yeah, absolutely to green, you know. It's definitely see, yes. Get going. Get front Lampe. I've been here saying that why he's all socio getting the money at aged job. He has no seavy to do that and Chelsea's in the same bracket, Chelsea team that have to be in the toll for have to play. The tape will have to be competed, very highest level, and the truth of the mar Franks, Franks just, just completely green, as far as consent. So I, I saw lovely fear story, but a thing, that's just what is really no Rica, Megan argument, that Franklin has less of a CV, then only gonna skyer does at this point or did even before he took over my saying that. And so if we're going through that reason in, they doesn't quite make sense, just yet it doesn't mean that it can happen in the future. But not just yet and by the way, I don't if you continue to do job. The Frank has done with Rb county and he continues down that path. Then I think the opportunities will be there not only Chelsea but everywhere else. Of the name that he cares. And the tune is that that name is gonna open over himself. But those opportunities only come when you have results out on the field. And if you're doing it Darby county, then obviously, people are gonna say, well, they can do it there. Maybe he can do it in other places to that end though. Is that to replicate success in the championship like a lot of what happened with Darby seemed to be lightning in a bottle? His stock may be at its high point right now. Jew would be the hardest thing for because because it was lack of expedience as if Chelsea will go through the type of period that salary went through Chelsea. Again, it expedience we'll we'll we'll too busy looking at the field and looking at the way, the play in the tactics and an old ill. Experience brings. Mentality when things are going great. You realize that you keep a level head, but when things are going bodily is even more important to keep a level head front. I don't think Frank has had any sort of experience that yet and he wouldn't be able to handle it. Basically, the other thing that you can maybe argument for is the fact that if he looked in the mirror of all source car, he would learn that the honeymoon last about I would say six weeks, and then that's it. It's over. And it doesn't matter what history you've had with, with the club and it doesn't matter how many things you were with the club, if the team is not playing out on the field, then you're not Frankie Frankie Lampert anymore. You're like, what are you doing? And why are you making decisions? And why are you blamed your genome? You've gotta think that they'd cut out sort of because he is Frank Lampard. You don't you don't think if things he would be a very good buffer, but he wouldn't step in thinking he's going to be a buffer. Yeah. Yeah. He's gonna step in thinking he's going to be the guy, and if the guy steps in and then after six weeks, or losing games, left and right. Then that's it doesn't matter what you did for the club Marino can lose. Some of these shine going back this when Frank. Yeah, absolutely. All this is because money, so sorry has been linked to Venice Schettino, has also been linked to events. Don't worry Spurs fans. He said today that he was two hundred percent committed burst. That's double one hundred percent. He also spoke about hurricanes fitness during the Champions, League media day this morning. I think cutting kidneys. In the last week Friday, Saturday and start to be both with a group. As positive the situation of him. Can not. Tell you is win to be faith. One hundred percent is going to be available to play from the beginning or being the bench or maybe out out. But we are so so positive and copy in the progression. Stevie? Give us the manager's perspective, what should do here? Completely different thing from being injured to be. No, I didn't like up until up until. No, I've been saying if how canes injured you just plan from the start plan from the start. And if we blew gasket after fairly minutes, forty minutes, wherever as you take them off. But listen to him, they're not doesn't if he's only just joined the rest of the players on the field. He's gonna be so far away. So no, my thinking as well. You know, maybe just keep this guy for desperation for the last fifteen twenty minutes if you need hasn't played since April nine Champions League final, like how could he possibly be ready? Well clearly he's not gonna be one hundred percent that, that then we have to make the assessment of. Well, it's eighty percent of Harry came better than the attorney that you have. And in making that assessment, you also have to look at experiences from the past and learn from things that other managers and other decisions that other managers have made in the case of the coast, and they will see my own in, in decide into. Play in the Champions League final when there was an injury place and then ten minutes into the match you have to take him off because he can't go. You don't want that to happen either. Now, the difference there is that was self tissue injury. This is not. So if he's fully recover from this injury and he's ready to go. I put him out there, but it's difficult to trust. When you hear the managers will he just join and that I agree with Stephen. That's when you say, well, that there hasn't been contact. There hasn't been when he says he does join he's not. He's getting the full training session than the other guys are. Because the progression usually is. All right, he'll go through some of the drills but he won't be one hundred percent. And then eventually as you go, you, you continue to involve him into the training session, and eventually, he's full-on. But that apparently hasn't happened yet. And if that's the case. And how do you put them out in champ to final? That's, that's, that's a tough decision. So maybe one of those where you just wait until. Look, we need them out there. We'll put him out there in the last twenty five minutes of the game and see what happens talking Champions League now our coverage from the drid years underway in earnest tomorrow. We got Dan, Stewart and gather and Stevie joined the boys day ready. No. Possibly go wrong. If you're looking for a reason to work with a local gyco agent, I have all of them because I'm the voice of reason reason, one gyco agents could help you save on more than car. Insurance reason to they can help. Tell your policy to fit your needs reason, three their local and for their local. Yes, I already said that. But still, good reason. And if you're looking for more ways to save your local gyco agent could help with more than just your auto insurance. Stop by give them a call today. They're here to help. Niko first year with fire Munich ends with a domestic double the clubs first since two thousand sixteen their seventh straight wounds league title and yet that round of sixteen Champions League exit at the hands of Liverpool looms large over year, one of the Niko Kovac era in Bavaria raff. What is your sense right now? How safe is Niko Kovac as we had to the summer. Pretty safe on the back of winning to double Collins Romany gays been very critical of him even though he's dressed it up. Nicely. Diplomatically analysts the president. So the two most powerful people at Byron have said he will be the coach next year. Softening is going to be very difficult to go back from that he's done enough. Think to convince the board that in the absence of a viable superstar candidate, he should be entrusted with that rebuilding job. But it is at least half of on behalf of Romany done slightly begrudgingly because he's been listening, very closely to what the players have to say. And a lot of them have said, they're not really sure that he's got what it takes to the steam forward. So he's going into next season not one hundred percent secure and you only have to wait till the first couple of bad results in September October and the debate and the discussion comeback. What about LeRoy sonnet heavily linked to buy Munich yet there are some reports today out of England at Manchester City making a last ditch effort to keep him right now. What does your gut tell you how likely is it the sonnet will end up with Munich? What it don't have to make a Lhasa Jeff because he still got two years to run. The problem is that binding city quite far away in terms of allegation. That's between the lines of what is said on yesterday saying that, yes. Of course we interested in the player, but it's difficult. So city, ultimately have to make a choice. You know how far wanna push it ought to go into the season thinking that maybe they can change Louis on his mind or maybe that Sunday himself with improved to the point, and he'll be a regular star two again, or caching now what is stock is very high and violent bind to have a really powerful suitable Ceuta who can put a lot of money on the table. I'm still my hunch will tells me that is still more likely to happen, the not. But of course, they have to agree, and ultimately the money talks. There are anandas Benjamin Vardi coming into by Munich clubs spent overall hundred million euros on that pair, French fullbacks, of course, plenty more though, to this by Munich rebuild is expected if they are going to be getting back to Champions League competitive level. What else does this by Munich team have to wrap? To add a bit more upfront. I think it's no secret that with Rubery, and Robin, leaving that they need to really strengthen those areas king's command and set it cannot be done. Well, but they're not quite at the same level, so you need at least one out and our top star in those positions Sunday could be the one team Vanna with I think be more of a squad player player who can play an IVA these positions or also be a backup for dos skin. And they're still talk of a of a midfielder. I think hearts is too expensive for this year trying to get him for next, but a chance that they might go for somebody like Rodrigo who sort of Boll playing the player to maybe give a bit of an upgrade or refreshment to the heavy Martinez position because he's getting on a little bit. So if you ask me again, I think we've come down to the manager, I think the biggest improvement would come if one of the best clubs in the world also would have one of the best managers in the world. I think with all the best will in the world, neca. College isn't. There yet. Of course, the other side of the Bundesliga title race is Borussia Dortmund. They've made some big signings Nico Scholtz brought in Dorgan hazard, Julian brands spent about seventy five million euros reminder, they also got sixty five million euros for Christian pulisic, raff. Is there a sense that this is enough for Dortmund to compete with Munich for for next year's title, or is it still more coming from Dortmund? I don't think that'd be so much more coming because those three positions where the, the need to strengthen still thinking about adding a center forward because I Kasa has a lot of injury problems. He has scored goals but physically, not always able to play a lot of games. So that is the one big question, Mark. They showed this they can't compete with buying but of course, bind will strengthen bind. We'll get better with the players that are adding, so for dope and just to keep pace and make it as ties it was this season, I think is probably the extent of their, their emission, and then have to hope almost at buying showed up bitter fragility showed the weakness that we've seen this year with open very nearly and Papp's should have taken full advantage. Wrath quick, reminder if you ever miss an episode of the show, you can always check out the podcast available on the website, ESPN dot com. Also available on I tunes. All right. We're looking at Christiano Renaldo output in his first year in, in the least amount of goals that he's scored since his final year with Manchester United. Of course, on the league didn't win the Cup and the champions frustration at the hands of I x probably highlighter role light, if you want to say, you've meant this season. I'll start with you. How do we assess what Rinaldo did given the massive expectations when he joined the club? And it's because Cristiano Renaldo comes to this club that then they expectations became I think, on realistic, because we says Juventus based upon the fact that okay there were knocking on the door of winning Champions League. And then we're now that would be the guy to put them over the top. But we forgot to assess was the fact that this team in many other areas was getting older. There players here that took a step back. And I think the name that comes to mind right away, probably who at one point couple of years ago, you might have thought men this, there's something here and the upward trajectory for him would be one that would suggest he's going to be a top class player that hasn't been the case, and then so then they became very Cristiano Renaldo dependent. And, and no better example, than that, then the second leg against the movie and Champions League where we saw Ronaldo, caring team, but he couldn't do that over the course of the whole year the whole season and overall, I just think for Juventus it was an underachieving season even if winning their their, their league just they came up short on many other things. And one of those things what the expectations they never came close to meeting those Steve feels harsh to call it a failure. I mean range one because it ended the day he was brought in for the Champions League. And he did these Jomon Champions League school. Trek to get past the Madrid this golden both goals both games against against axe Champions League. He did his job the rest of them didn't. Trying to pick a little hole in them, I would say that considering these to team who before the balls kicked, you know, we're going to win the league, I think you would expect them to, to win the, the golden bird, you'd expect more goals in the league so are not Sade. Not one in the, the golden book for me would be a failure for them. But in the Champions, League I thought he did exactly what it was asked to what's your sense on this wrath. How should we grade Rinaldo first year in Syria? Finish the Saronic welcome to leeann messes world. You know you do your job team. Nets. You down. Still everybody. Blames you for some hundred doing it? I think that's exactly what happened. I could agree with Stevie. I think he had a wonderful Champions League campaign. You really could not blame him for anything that befell on Yuga. The fact that Legua had to go was kinda verdict in itself, that the team was not coached properly enough or not well enough to the liking of, of the club. But there is something over decline in numbers, it is lowest output in ten years. His shot volume still high about the positioning of the shots not as good, which suggests that he's funding a little bit difficult more difficult to get into these really good positions that it used to get to all the time and east probably just off his his very peak a little bit. Now that still makes him one of the best players in the world makes them best player in Italy by mile. But I think you've enters maybe. A beginning to wonder wherever they have made that big move, maybe one or two years, too late because I'm not sure it's realistic to expect him by himself to push you've enters that much further all of the stats would suggest that there's some logic to what Rafeh saying. He may be statistically anyway pass this peak. You agree with that. It's only natural. He's not getting any younger. And, and he has defied that logic already because there were times in which he had slow starts to the season. And you think well this ad say you know what they couldn't possibly score the same amount of goals. ES Gordon the past, and then he would somehow revive himself in the middle of the season and end up with a ridiculous number of goals, but that didn't happen this year. And there were enough of those explosive gains from Christiane where you see a hat trick here. Follow by other two goals, and another had drinking there weren't those moments in which Renaldo takes over. Now, some of that has to do with your into which just address that and the rest of the team. But then someone that is that there is a natural tendency that look he's getting older. He is. And we're not saying that he's not a top class player. We're not saying he's not he lied, but eventually, this things do catch up and eventually, that extra yard that little half a something that allowed you to get in front of defender. You're no longer able. To do that consistently. And so therefore, you're not able to score the goals that you did before. And so if this number continues to go on this direction, then yeah, the trend seems to be more like what recipe that, it's, it's natural that by getting older. We're looking at a player that his diminishing returns are also slowing down. Plenty more on Cristiano Renaldo. Over on our website, ESPN, c dot com in written form. James one castle with the article check it out. If you ever want your voice heard on the show extra time, the place to take your questions off. Can always find it on our YouTube channel as well. We've sifted through a few questions we've got one here to help us wrap up the show. Marco we'll show no guys what game in you're playing careers where you most nervous before and why all I'll start with you. First one really wasn't there. It was against what was at that time, Dallas burn with the LA galaxy. Yeah. It's, it's the first opportunity to be out there at the professional level. So there's obviously nurse and inside. But then after that you grow out of those nurse and then you run into different types of nerves that there is this sort of negative connotation to nurse. But I do think that players that are really into it and care wanna do well, you feel a little something, and it makes you feel alive and in matters to you so national team games big games and welcome qualifiers. Copa Manica semifinal Medica doing something that your country's never done before. And you're out there, representing millions and millions of people that'll get your attention Stevie played some big games. They were making nervous. I see. I'm gonna go with Alli my first game for Liverpool was a whip but meal. And you know you play for the European champions. And so you're thinking, well, do I belong here and all the other one was Scotland, Debbie? I five settings of the game, the opposition attack, Yougoslavia a clear, one of goal line ticket wrote dribble, the ball and try and make a pass kicked. It straight. There buddy. Hey, welcome into the ESPN FC very for today's edition of extra Todd or they're excited to be back back in the hotseat with Stevie route rap on the weekend with this as well. I was working but off of this show, they gave everybody a break. Makes the heart grow. Well, it's healthy. Anyway. No, no, no. There are exceptions to that rule years. We're all here today. Frank wants to know any of the panel ever snapped their laces when trying to tie their shoes. I'm not sure what Frank means you guys know what that means napped you snap them in half. Now, trying time, very tightly I can tell you that I would time my shoes, and if I didn't feel comfortable the way I won't and then do it again this, I think you'd be cleats, you. But yeah. All are you. Bhalla change in Lacy's, and it's not me. Right. When I got out that would be June again. Never now. Good equipment man, there, livable. Yeah. Yeah. Right. Yoursel yourself, get the kids to the kids to show Cole, the cleaner verge the apprentices. He's. Frenzies. Next question. Oliver Ryan, the Steve believe in Bigfoot. Punctual do. Seen. Get. Question. I don't know you believe in it. There's no real evidence exists. Fit will just dismiss. It. Never know if I'm just getting my leg hold here. So tell you let me put it this way. I am limit fitness way. Right. So the now discovering that there are all different types of secret, just because the every year, they seem to be able to go deeper and deeper. Right. And the show and things that you like if somebody should you picture of you be like? Yeah. Right window. Mrs. So what was to see a ruse to see the deep in the woods in the jungles never wear else around, different animals who may be of a larger size than what we can't really beat that argument, who's to sell the still the still discovering. Different tribes in Brazil. Yes. In nineteen. So why not? But I do have a question pertains, the Bigfoot, what is the difference between bickford and the yeti? Ooh. Like the Domino's was a snow land. Bigfoot. It's a yeti like a snowman. Yes. Joe kaffee. Yeah. All right. Maybe different locations, he'll graphical. I think so Vic goes on vacation to the Al, then he becomes a yet. Yeah. That's definitely how that's how it is for a little bit more expertise opinion. On this topic we go to wrap thoughts on Bigfoot. Is there? Show. We asked that question every day round. Don't worry about easel teric corner. I don't believe in Bigfoot. I'd like to think that all these extraterrestrial phenomenon and all these things they seem to convey quiet ever since people actually have mobile phones to make proper footage. Where's the footage so not? Go. Rough was planning Ilva. I tell you, what rabbit believes in deep, the V necks. In that releasing that me. So fresh, look. Yeah. So. Doesn't believe in Bigfoot, alabam, Dini didn't believe in Atlanta. No man Stevie. They got. No. No immagination open mind up. Endurance picture of open minded. Next question. Also, Stephen for you. Who was the best player that you ever played with? Oh that's, that's the tough one on list. With her again, count really says it says with, so let's stick to that. If you don't wanna teammates. Let's go against them. Let's change the question. I think we can do that, right. Sure. Did it? What do I lean Mahad wanted to know? But I play against you. So I mean. No question in the top five. I think I'm going to go with Johann cry. That's a strong on. You got some strong writing that down. Because it helps me remember what have you never comes up again. So you're gonna give up. Because I've written it down. It somehow. Best players ever played with against you wanna share again at said many times that their very best ceiling now. Messy. List goes on name either got guy. Let me just say that we'd be calm on the winning end many times, you know, we were not see they had Mazzi and Brazilian or now the. Who have up this guy? Quite quite about how yourself. Been touched the ball much. That's game. Final question here again obviously Champions League final week Liverpool involve we're getting a lot of Stevie questions. How long Stevie go on the lash for Liverpool when the champions, they got told my what not to expect to see me for a week, what is on the lab party. What is on the last guy, I would, I would suggest I was gonna see dependent on what time before it leaves on Sunday. Then why stole? On the flight. Plus, you'll be turning I assume other land. Other know to. It's important for. A ticket. Somebody else takes whatever that's your ticket. He's called a pilot. We can tell whether we want as long as you gets me old. Everything organized for your trip. Feel pretty calm about it, very confident that, yeah, I've been just a small detail. I've no idea, you nobody's children, which element. But. About Madrid, although somebody will surely take you in. I don't want always we've seen in Scotland on the last you'll always find the peace if someone never pieces, Assam weekly. But that doesn't help you for sleet, veasley wanted means as some people always end up being alright. And you're one of those and I'll, I'll be alright. I'll end up getting a walk. Vega. Hey, that, okay. You don't take out at all. Many people wouldn't think like, yeah, he say. You're a man of the world. Yeah. You got it was going to be going to four thousand Scousers there to blend.

"Walk into the ESPN FC studios for this Tuesday edition of the show Craig Burley, Paul mariner mementos fashion Salazar here with you. We've also got wrath hunting science standing by to join us in raffle, come in straight out to you to start because we now have the inaccurately named shortlist for the Bologne door. Thirty names journalists vote on this, your journo. Who would you vote for. Luma messy, of course. Is there really question he's the best player of the world. Not me. I said, it's before the show, even if he doesn't kick a ball all year, he is still the best player of the world right now on this planet, and I don't find the argument about at least on my head and the argument studio here who list it's a short list. There's a list refresh Mario monsoon, which catches on it. There's no shortage of options. If you want to take a look at the list from baba, really of what he's done this year, when legal the friends cope when the World Cup gonna I'm gonna minute. Cool. You just on buck and I'm bucking muppet on twenty three matches sixty two goals. Twenty four games for France. Twelve goals scored in the wool impel teenagers to do it. Probably got to one of the final is the most incredible year that anyone could of of his. There's a joy to watch. They play the game in the right way. I don't mind about the and if I were to pick one from friends, it would not be Untung agreement would be Kilian mbappe it because he was the different player in the world. He was the guy that if you're watching France, you pay attention to. But I agree with that. I would say messy and the stats paint a picture us to William messy means to Barscelona, but is the consistency is his ability to do it year after year, and then you sleep at the productivity and what he does and his performances individually. Sometimes they are evaluated based on his standard, which unfairly puts him in a position where maybe he comes show, comes up short of his stand there and yet is above everybody else's. Stander messy continues to be the best player in the world. I mean, Imbaba would be. I mean, the be for teenager, but terrific. You know, ten years ahead of them. Already a world class operator already planned. The guy in these mid twenties s that's how materials and a problem with that because pokes at and you've clearly been on the computer. He's he's number stuck up. However, there's no doubt Macy is the best player in the world. It's not has the as a team Bacelona capitulated against Roma and the Champions League. It's not has Foale the under some Pioli Argentina. I say my well. He was messing behind-the-scenes and he was trying to do this. It's not as focused. The Argentina were shambles, the World Cup, you control all of these things one month control. So it will make the argument you know that before. Well, it hasn't won the world cut while he hasn't done this. Well, when the Champions League this year, that's really not what we're talking about here. We're talking about individuals and as an individual as he showed again last week in the Champions League at Wembley east just an a different stratosphere according to the bookmakers guy who's going to win. It hasn't even been named yet on this panel. Look moderate. Raff. What do you think is gonna end up winning this. I think mortgage gets a lot of political votes for people a little bit fed up with Messier Nala who want to reward creche as a team. They're looking for him as a figurehead as a captain is a guy who threw his tires, Tyler snus and ability really dragged Cratia maybe little bit fervid and it should have done. But having said all that, I don't think he is a better football at Leona messy. I don't think that quite in the same bracket and I think it'd be slightly this ingenious to make the argument. Yes, he's had a lot of impact. Yes. He's done really well for his country for Madrid, lesser I would say, but I still don't see how he can be perceived as better for the Leona. Messy in two thousand eighteen again, people throw that back to well, this'll be country club. Great. Play a lot love watching play. Don't get me wrong. It does some wonderful things. But again, this, you'll be all argue back to to club and country, but will not judging club. Country, and I actually agree rough. I think there's some sort in default vote going on here where people have become a little bit tired of at been out or be messy, but that's not their fault. Now it's not their fault of this generation. They have been for a decade, and that's a law index, a decade of consistency of been head and shoulders above ever bail is quite staggering. What about Mohammed? Salah? We haven't mentioned him yet. Is he being punished for Egypt's poor World Cup? Is that fair? I don't see mohamed-salah as the best player in the world, and to be honest with your surprise that he was in the final three when the best game out a couple months ago, however long it was. He is a player that had a terrific season for Liverpool and and one that should be evaluated as such. However, he's not better than messy. He's not better than now. He's better than him by. He's no better than mothers. And so that point we're ready talking. He's not even five. If we're going to really look at the names that are being thrown out round liveable once on a woman that was over so that didn't, then you can start to think about, you know, we came at the final called injured his fault, but he got injured. The just came a little bit short. And when you fight to. And when you fight to. I agree with Eli's is no one. Three. We talk about messy fatigue. Maybe some Christina Renaldo fatigue, too. Yeah, and I think you can both. You can put both of them together in the same category where people are like, well, we don't want Missy to win. So now we're gonna go for something different, which is okay to some degree. And and I do agree that if if you're going to go for somebody else, then go for mother and reward. What happened? The world go because the World Cup should be something that you take into consideration when you come up with this sort of awards. However, you cannot punish the unanimous and Cristiano Renaldo for being what they have been. You cannot hold them to a to a whole different standard simply because your tire of their success because what they're going to continue to hold goals, there's still going to be around and also talking about tie. There's so many only plays supposedly tired of the Wilco. When you look at the performances of mess in Renault. You've couple of getting going, but you look at the performance of those two plays and my volume Buffy. By the way, just flip for the other day on thirty minutes. We'll go smell too, but. There's no drop for those guys know drop off also. That's why you don't little bit against him, but you don't count that he plays in the French league against them. It doesn't hurt his candidacy a little bit. No look what he's doing. The best tuna -ment. You know. For France is emotional fantastic. High level players. He the weather plays. The game is an absolute joy is a credit to himself is parents and the way that is going to be so influential in kids what you will football. Well, when there's no that is, he's probably going to go on a run of five, five times winning it. Maybe it's not ziebel. I just love what should imply that is a census. He was a memorable player from the World Cup killing, look. It's a debate that could go on forever. Hopefully. Here's what you get in the best of the week. Long athleticism. Don't. The week. Change in the boondocks league of Dortmund on top with seventeen points Byron, eunuch in six play after a shocking, nothing defeat at home to mountain allowed back on the weekend. There's look at Byron's last four matches across all competitions are winless. That doesn't mean though that they are trying to have some fun roller. Oh, that under fire, but finding a little bit of time here and there for some bruise. Oh, to the crew? Yeah. Oh, yeah. You guys have been October. He's back in Germany from Mortenson. Looks like things aren't all that bad immune. I was the Gluck and spear cove actually harness there. Honus. Here's what he had to say. I would offend Niko Kovac until the end. We are completely calm. I clearly stand behind him no matter what will happen in the next week's. Plenty more support for the embattled manager Dietmar Hamann. They're almost exclusively very young or very old players. I think it's wrong to blame the coach for that. Now, more support house. The coach thinks about football all day yesterday, pay the price. The squad not being sufficiently reinforced in the summer for more. Let's bring in wrath on Eckstein raff. Correct me if I'm wrong car launch, Alati got sacked for a lot less than what's going on right now with Niko Kovac. Yeah. No, that is wrong. I mean, not he was sacked because there was a feeling that wasn't doing his job. A lot of players felt that they had no real significant coaching being done. The fitness levels were quite poor famously had a fitness coach who smoked on the pitch, didn't set the great example the rest of the players and what dragged on from the season before only needed a couple of bad results. And it was only two bad results really. But the results themselves didn't matter so much. The overall feeling this is going to be a disaster season. Kovic is different because there were doubts about him. There were doubts about the squad because both of them he ended team started so well and played such good stuff in the early weeks. The drop in level of performances now is not so easy to explain vine of made mistakes when it comes to the squad policy. No doubt he has made one or two mistake. But there is no easy sort of line that you could use unlike with on Chelotti where everybody knew really inside addressing them that this wasn't working. People are still largely speaking behind Kovacs which makes an explanation even harder to find Rafter. Sixth right now, do you think they can turn it around. Look. I mean, the squad is such that it's almost inconceivable to see them not winning most games. I mean, even those forbade results that we talked about against hats, the loss against our spoke, the draw those games, a bind created. A lot of chances. The real concern came now against glovebox. We're buying look completely helpless almost and had no way of even creating chances. If it continues in that mold, then it comes a point where the team stop believing in him. And when the club also stop believing in, but it's hard to see with so much talent so much quality that they are not going to win. Most games. Dolman is a big one coming up in not too long time. If they have a bad result there, then I think you'll get into serious trouble and pressure at the moment though. I think by not entirely untruthful when they say they still think that this is going to be a successful season. It should be with this quote that they have wrath. If you look at the bookmakers, they still have barn Munich as one of the favorites to win the Champions League. Are you in agreement. Broadly speaking? Yes. Again, very difficult on the stand. What kind of buying team will turn up next few Ron zook f. ak- Athens in the next two games to shoot win. It's a strip pretty straightforward group. So we will only know how strong or weak by now when it comes to the knockouts in February and March, what is works Fordham think last year. A lot of people said this team is already over the hill, not quite good enough. You saw how push the eventual winners, Rome all the way and paps were the better side of it of those two games. Maybe those performances conversely blind the board to the real potential into the problems maybe to the the weaknesses in the squad. It's very difficult to value at this moment in time. What I would say is that with Al Davis coming in January, they would. They will address this problem that they have on the flanks of the moment. And I guess the thinking is that until then Robin Rubery. Knob re and Coleman. If you comes back in time, should together the enough to be competitive, and I think broadly have to with us that's raft Dorman Dr top of the table rolling right along, not too different than what happened last year. And yet last year they finished fourth, almost thirty points behind Byron Munich. Will this year be different for Dortmund. I mean, it's it's a great start and loosen. Father is a guy who's shown at much less talented teams hat. Oh, so much that he gets them to perform at the very limit of their levels. Maybe even beyond that, now you take a coach with that kind of reputation and with that kind of habit of bringing teasing the best out of players out of teams and you put them together with a team that is still very young still, quite Ron positions still maybe a little bit unbalanced in certain areas and the bounce that everybody was hoping for. And I would include neutrals who wanna see adult -ment really challenging on has come, and it's communist stronger way and much earlier than most people and -ticipant it. And I would include open in that at the moment. It's going goals from everywhere to scoring eighteen goals in the last four games. It's probably not quite sustainable at that level. Elsie cannot defend the way did against out, spoke and hope to win every game for three and that a couple of minutes. But the potential is there and the fun is there and momentum. And I think if that momentum carries them a little bit of an if bond show weakness, then at least we think. Can all hope for dome into being a much better place to take advantage. And they have been in recent years where you felt that they had too much to to cope when it came to actually utilize in their own potential before they could even worry or stop dreaming about challenging, much closer to getting the most out of what is a pretty good squad. Speaking of doormen I got asked about Jaden Sancho kids eighteen years old. He leaves the boondocks league in assists. He's just been called into the England squad. What's been the reaction to his play in Germany? The action reaction is huge. I mean, this is a guy who ready last season when he came in started to make some moose. He was very inconsistent sort of doing something amazing and in three or four bad decision. So people also fairly used to young players getting chances and doing what, especially dormant. So it's not sort of the big hype that you would expect. If it happened with a German player, he is four and he's going to go to England. So domestically, the hype isn't that big. I think that's good for him. I almost Voy a little bit. I personally think ourself gate might have waited a little bit longer. He will be an England player. He has got the potential. He's got the quality, I think maybe just giving him a bit more time, not necessarily making him play all these extra games. Even if it's just hanging out with the scored, I think could have done with slightly more gradual introduction to the England seniors. But I guess you so good in England a little bit short nose, attacking midfield positions that self get feels. He has no option, but to pick him.

One of the talking points from the weekend, the decision to have Riyadh Mars Gabrielle chases take the last minute penalty for Manchester City against liberal. Here's what the Brazilian port had to say. Obviously, I'm not that happy as Riyadh. I've been practicing penalties. I would like to have taken it. I was confident, so I was not happy that they did not allow me. However, it was important that we didn't lose pep spoke with me. This is part of football. Sometimes these things happen. I will support Riyadh manager chooses him again. Now, wrath in peps, postmatch interview or post-match press conference. He acknowledged that he didn't know Riyadh. Mars is poor track record with penalties. This is supposedly guy who leaves no stone unturned. Do you believe pet. Yes, I do believe it. Otherwise, why? Why mentioned it? And he, he pulled Josh for it, and it was his decision to get Mars to take it. And he based on his penalties in training, which apparently very confident. It's quite interesting because in everything I've read about having everything, I've seen him trying to bind speaking to players. No-one's one's mentioned that he is a big numbers guy. I don't think he is. I think he's a guy who sees the game in patterns in moves in ideas. I don't think he actually studies the numbers of your positions the number of his own players. He is almost too deep thinker. I think to to bowl with this kind of stuff and you could say, maybe that's not as job, but maybe somebody on the bench should have had those numbers and maybe should've. Should've alerted them to that. That is thing. The big fana- him more of a coaching, collective, Robert, and him personnel, knowing that particular stat in my view, if you watched for anybody, washer won't mention name ship anyone who watched the the fly in the world documentary about mindset. KOMO over the last few months and. A couple of episodes because after. We've been drew mino- arms to Ralph's point. Clearly other sites has monument and coaching than than just crunching numbers. I'm sure it does crunch some numbers from data and from people behind the scenes. It's no surprise really. Anyway, I've never known fact some domestic penalty become such a big store. The gave him his on the game that was a game. Well, here's the deal. You know about the Baio messed up penalty in the World Cup final. I was like, you know. Still talking about these things hopping from me as a young player, but in my experience and everyone's different, if I'm five that bowl until you're off the field. Jesus hod the bullet Italian, but he's he's stood on the spot. He was I, I don't care what messages coming from the bench. I'm not moving. I'm the strike and I'm a Jovan to national and I'm confident I don't care what's coming for the bench taking responsibility, and I'm going to. It's no clearly. He took a Saint step because the message come on someplace. Especially especially when re at Mars wasn't exactly confident about taking the penalty himself. It's not like he was running to the penalties to go get the ball. He was as far as it could be from the penalties, but he only became involved when Mendy came over and say, no dude, you gotta go take it. And at that point they conversation on the penalty spot. It's really strange because normally when you a football club, you know who the penalty takers. Craig says, Gweru pounds off the field. Then you know who the next guy is. It's not like, okay, you do mccombs because it shouldn't be. It shouldn't, but you're in big games. You know, she'll be easy to Capella. It's not easy that was useless at seven pounds too much time to think about it. I didn't like that. Some people Absottly quality that pressure in that kind of the hub, but it's very unusual for for, you know, take him off Newport long with real quick. You've been a manager. Is that something the manager should know your your players, track record abilities, or as as raff suggests somebody else on the bench? And you know, you know, we can. We cut in training you, you know a training, but we're talking about missing four of his last seven that number of. Of most people who really don't know also stuff I don't. I don't know about this guys, but I can remember in the teams that I play for national team as well on the board. There was all information who marks who who takes his freekick who takes penalty. It was all there. It wasn't a guesswork. It wasn't. It wasn't something that you going to imagine the it was gonna take this. Are you going to gonna take that should not have even been a question that point from wrong. Gabrielle is missed as exactly how the great recent two of his last three. I think then you look, you're thinking more who've next off at Selva he's missed. Think he missed his last one, then you look. I mean, I don't think that's the big story was just talking about him abilities. Johnstone's who's an accomplished player on the ball, stay open or a banana salvo. Remember who still pitch team Dhabi civil with. I don't know. There was a plethora of people at Manchester City. There's a reason. The reason on the training ground that you work on things on the training ground because you're proficient call an occasional visit free case. You professor depends. So as always says, you know, you roll before you. Do we, he plays, I would doesn't take a hard one on of not about still talking about the penalty. Maybe still talking about it on tomorrow's show on KOMO show. We will also be talking about shockers powering.

I'm so calm talking and he just went crazy, whatever argument, this, and that. And the other I woke up the next day and I had a headache and stood only know and also I didn't have any drinks. I wasn't sick before I spoke to that point. I realized simply he's not good for my health. So stayed away since then on your contractors.

Surfer Thomas Miller has been at the heart of this buyer Munich team and really the heart of the club for more than a decade now I could you just describe what he's like as a person? Is Very funny or anything all I have time I have time and then me the road runner they have to by roadrunner cancer had the steal ball doesn't always come across in English, because it's very difficult for humans to translate well but he is very funny in minutes I ever show with A. TV team, I say completed. No Fun. Is. Very intelligent straightforward I think he has good sense of what it is. That makes a team successful. Thank you for the mets trophy. But I think we have Maybe twelve or fifteen players. That deserves the trophy as well. We worked so hard. We work with and I think on top of that. He personifies what it means to be a bavarian. You know buying is the German word for that area just very wealthy very beautiful. It is the stereotypical. Germany for most foreigners who we think of deer think of people lederhosen people sometimes look down on these guys lederhosen their beer as being slightly simpleton maybe a little bit argument and and Brash Ovens. But for for Bavarians, it is a sense of pride after the training session the stars took part in the traditional power Lana Lederhosen photo shoot. And when you combine that with buying as a football institution who play on that heightened sense of Bavarian, he think represents those contradictions but also the the bland and the combination of these things in a way that no other bind player does at the moment. And in terms of soccer. I have to say Thomas. Miller is one of the strangest players I've ever seen. Can you explain what makes him so unusual he is strange because he holds a really important position for one of the best teams in the world without being necessary obviously a gifted player. Because of his spindly legs and this upright running frame and this, he looks like a middle distance runner than a footballer I try not to be that muscular than my teammates because Less weight on my bones, his less injury, and that's my secret. It just don't see the the beauty elegance to so even the power the most played at this level brain and there's always something ungainly love it awkward about the way he and controls the ball he likes to Shin The ball router. Hindi cleanly speak about jumped all the time. Is Elite. I think once said that he's the best worst player in the world. I once thought that you know he was playing with a white t-shirt underneath his shirt poking out as some kind of wife beater show underneath and maybe I was imagine it almost got the sense that he was doing it on purpose to just give the impression that this is just this random guys just walked onto the pitch and he can't possibly be any good and opponents look thinking. Who is this guy and then twenty minutes later he's got two goals against them. So I think he's perfected that sleight of hand and is quite happy that people still think he's somehow know a good player and I think it takes you quite a bit of time and and different viewpoint to understand what it is yet she brings to the team and I tried to explain that my my biggest quality is maybe. The game without ball because in this time we had his game is all based on on movement on ideas on the interpretation of space as he wants himself, put it. So eloquently than my qualities to do to get in the right space to the right time. Maybe. Space Interpreter. But what does is so incredibly effective it's much easier to understand why successive bind coaches have founded absolutely necessary to make him keep playing a key position and also why successive coaches who haven't been able to see the beauty of mirrors game. F-. Often found themselves fired will speaking of that last season under Niko Kovac Thomas Miller spent a lot of time on the bench way is that I think you could call it just didn't understand what was the devil was doing for. Him Kovachev, slightly more reactive systems more defensive system. He often played with three midfielders and three attackers. So middle often found themselves very far away from goal. So you really losing the best attributes familiar plane in that position and eventually almost but I have of applies knows wide positions and if anything I will use them as a backup for the doc- through the middle is mistake was to say that to Miller you you're my backup option which didn't go down well. And because the results were bad because you know unhappy million addressing is not not a good thing. It all add it to the reasons he coach was eventually fired many. He mishandled Muna mishandled the team N.. Misunderstood I think the the real importance of murder which now has become apparent when small. Well. The current Byron Coach Hansie Flake came in and really reshape the way that this team and Thomas Miller play. Can you describe this system underhand flick and Thomas Muller's role within that system Told US monoplaces preferred position, which is in a free role behind Dusky can go in any way he wants. Generally. Nixon fugitive. beat trigger points for buying, suppressing, running, Pasta and. Then everyone follows his lead. We have very aggressive pressing. We tried to attack the opponent very early and with high intensity combined with the talent that they have on the bull makes it very difficult any team to live with a drill Just, thirteen minutes. Munich boss. This. Honey. Flick has done two things. One TS reinstated that blueprint that buying a happiest with its full two three one system with a high press in the high line and Mila number ten role and two wingers. But beyond that I think he's got the teams by into his ideas because he's also really nice guy. Maybe maybe we will see some of these player. To. Know. relatable honest doesn't lie to players doesn't talk them down like Kovic did and for club that can be quite cutthroat when it comes to dealing with its players I think to have him almost kind of a buffer or a guy who's on the side of the players more often than on the southern club. He seems a strange way the ideal coach wine, footballer Audy, Item Advisor or via does I like him as a player I can say and as a player, but also as a human and I can say. I'm happy that. He is fit at the moment. Blind wanted a much bigger name. They wanted a superstar coach after Guatemala. Don Shula you didn't work out inflict. They found the opposite but found the guy that strangely enough seems to be the best fit possible. Well, Rafa. After the eight, two demolition of Barcelona you wrote about, radio? Muller. Could you explain that term? Always, talks that's why he's got that nickname in the dressing room he will strike up a conversation with the referee he talked to his opponents, but importantly, he will talk his own team somebody like Miller who coach the team or help the team self coach is absolutely invaluable and watching him in action maybe I should say hearing him against Chelsea into stadium opened. My is in my eyes to to how important is because he he really is almost like a director calling quite literally the shots now you do this now you do that. And the players seem to believe in him seem to trust him in sync is not borne out of fear but more of a belief and confidence that Mueller knows what he's doing and has the right idea. So if milita you to play the ball wide, you don't even have to look up you play double wide because more often than not somebody already dead at Muna seen and you haven't having watched a game against Leon without crowd noise was again It's just one voice here. Radio. Thomas Miller has already won just about everything. There is to win what would this Champions League title mean for him and his legacy? With. Legacy. He's already legendary figure this fine team for Germany's well having won the World Cup with them to lift the cup twice the up cup twice of buying I think would take him to new level as far as club is concerned because that hasn't happened for anyone since the seventies. So I don't think he will ever be in the best eleven but I think he will go down as an absolute legend of the spine team and the guy who wrote this team together and made everyone better and and succeeded people don't nobody really believed that much in an I play. Everybody every football player needs also the team. And that's why we love so much. rougher thanks so much for coming on the show and enjoy the match. Thank you very much. Thanks having me.

Thomas Craig Burley and Shaggy hislop a little later on this show be reactive sneeze Niko Kovac has left buying Munich but we saw in the Premier League Everton Everton taking on spurs unfortunately the big story from this game it was the injury to anger Gomez late in the match sewn with the challenge initially play the record sorry yellow you change it to read once we once he's still the extent of the injury replaced with suggests that maybe it was the cost of Orient Yeah that saw him take his ankle phrase it now here because it's very graphic the replay boys you knew didn't you straight from on our colleagues say that once that he yes tomorrow but when Aaron Ramsey broke his leg at stoke yeah he changed his show across the station Yeah Shawcross challenge which it was a terrible break for rams the borden was outside the leg it was compound and said he changed decision when he saw the injury came to get the feeling this happened opened again as a natural thing to do was any intent from Sunday it was a rash challenge for sure and then somewhere along Lehman Gomez losers Furton because of the challenge Oreos also there and somewhere in between all the way over on and look unfortunately is broken these dreamers there's any from from Sun to cause damage I don't think there's any question I do think though that Sean trying to leave a little bit as players on the field on on Gomez and as a as a result lead the consequence I think he has to be a responsibility for everyone just an innocent challenge and somehow you know L. boats in the early on in the game and then and then as a result I think someone is trying to leave a little bit on Gomez obviously not trying to to break his leg in that manner which is why I think on hostelry responsibility and you'd be red card for meteorite decision how did just been a normal challenge in the ordinary course of a game and somehow somehow that was the outcome broke his leg wouldn't have been a red card in it I have no problem with it being yellow yes for me the outcome mm can impact how the challenge is judged to agree what by the way you're listening to any of the Yes the father if he didn't break his leg it would have been a yellow yes hundred percent I say start the impact of the injury changes the the real the was the bishop steady yellow I thought I thought of a problem by the way I'm really not interested because I think the big issue here is I guys broken these leg volt played up Brima leg he said I'll be claiming guys have broken the legs exit way more important than what should have been given the fact that he made a rash challenge in somewhere along the line he might think Whoa I would say as he's probably unfortunately to get red card right but in the big story is nice I mean you can see how opposite it was as well yeah of course not just him the other players as well on the Patriot let's focus some what else happened in that Game Everton fans felt they should penalty here they have found themselves one nil down Deli with a handful they took three and a half minutes to the side that it wasn't a penalty first of all I'm not sure why this takes three minutes and I'm not sure how this is the judge not have to be a penalty the law is pretty clear on this if the army's is above the shoulder then strikes regardless of where it comes from whether you're amino whoever go to touch on it if your if your arms outside of the natural silhouette which I don't think there's any question it was it's a penalty why does that take three minutes I have absolutely no idea and once again there's a monitor on the side and we say we've we've talked about the fact that officials in England whatever reason refusing among coming off the buckwheat off the bye two thousand and a workup so the the biggest showcase in the blunt and VR handled particularly well and the ones that were saying the naysayers it just one that most actually quite enjoyed the competition session of excitement the came to the decisions quite quickly and the main and never got this right it's not just this whole season but this one today wake wake me up some say well it wasn't Blah shocks right the arms up the but the time it took yeah good grief first time it was just crazy for me this is coming off the back a week where I think we both Italy and France who saying well I wish we could be more like England in in English says wow you just wait and watch this and I it's it's it's absolutely ridiculous it was it was bad before oh I don't know how you explain or excuse what we saw in the gift of a good point how arrogant are you if the English referee in the English fa you watch the World Cup and they actually that went well but you know what we're going to put our own spin it because with the premier league and we have to do I blame improbably attributed to might really never remember the PGA Moyal wherever as much officials might rarely has decided to go against what everybody else is doing we're going to do differently on we're going to referee the game from Stockley Park which is the headquarters were primarily productions as an all thelma every film from the Premier League is coming in there Mark Martin not considered had done what everybody else is doing and what we've been talking about I had run over to the Monitor Monitor at Goodison showing three or four replays of the handball he would have came to this as you probably are actually but he would have came to that within four five it's three minutes three minutes for some clothes and rock and roll replays olly Jesus music thing for me is again I thought the English approach was cautious is just on sensible everybody has jumped into the deep end English while we wait to see how this goes credit rightly points out workup went swimmingly well there were eight nations were we're using it even before that stress test it so to speak in what was the FA Cup or the Carbo Coupla season and this is what you come up with after all that go back to the point you've got one of the most experienced referees Martin Atkinson stood at Goodison Park he has no clue what was going on well he has a clue the fines have no clue what's going on the players have no clue the only one that knows as a year Amina daily who was going well and and meanwhile he stood in one of the most experienced wear an someday oaks who has four hundred miles away to make a decision Anthony Taylor the thing is for me just just just finally what that does is it takes away the authority of the Raffray on the park because everybody's been Buick player or fun things rob you're there you've got the whistle decision isn't really yours you're not really lies thousands of miles away which is ridiculous position for any really has to Komo known put down the old stubborn this coming from es boys a he has to put down these old stubborn to say because he was old uh-huh he's asked to say as an Elysees and when they got some state we said what sex decisions who says is wrong you haven't yet double trouble you will just just been Cherry Picking Cherry picking them is going to come out now and say surely is listen the game is GonNa we'll be refereed from the game by the much official will have the final say it's not difficult right yeah as not a difficult decision to make and you're still one more call from this game boys what did you think was a penalty on son I'm right on the offensive this one and I'll tell you why from from one hundred it doesn't look like the contact is enough from another it does look pretty bad that one you you you see what he can you can argue that either way exactly I you depend on which will you pick you're not quite sick which is why I think this is one of those perfect situations where you see it's inconclusive we go with ruling what we seven minutes into the show we talk about about the actual results let's do that much of the game because that game was run so it Republican told the last twenty five minutes or so I got the equaliser Kalis ahead doing with McCall hopefully Williams if I'm Ravina side it was chosen with types of sorry wasn't an intensive you you want me not reaching out yeah I mean listen what's out now for we've talked about other people talked about it they haven't won a waste John I needed relegated continues it wasn't it was another not very convincing performance against another team who are just not very convincing it was an awful a four game for the most ever what they would probably think is the justice else at the end when they had the extra money for Tottenham that shadow I do of the side we saw for most of he's not a good season so off spurs or for their northern rival are so of course held to a draw home against wolves yesterday we'll have twenty five shots on target and I know sometimes you could slip at stop and say yeah but they didn't tell the whole story it was really interesting comments off of this game from you niamh Murray who sent it's a bad result but tactically it worked out how we we wanted the red bluff redland. Da Show your opponent and their way from one of these buckled they buckled on several things I mean is kept Chaka which arguably is the right thing to sendings buckled up but is left pappy out the beg the young youngsters twenty four think peppy as a million whatever it was is buckled on the also thing wasn't an MBA decision to leave for all these weeks and weeks home and away not in the squad sometimes most of the time well you tell me what seventy minutes and a Cardboard Cup games enough to all of a sudden change in mind a moment in time he has no idea absolutely eighteen months intelligible litterbox is absolutely no idea what his best team has ever him well he's not the only problem arsenal that's for sure Another club trying to restructure things off the back of Winger Lake Ferguson. The problem was that for so long we won pulling in most of the strings but affect the answer would probably be come the end of the season probably will the seasons a long time and then let's royal at least if you pull the trigger now they're gonNA get Allegra Allegra Allegra say right coming home project with you well going to go by on Munich I don't even things that by german-speaking managing anything legs very keen on the Premier League if you're also why not do it now because you're saying nothing I you know from the Niamey that was suggest he's going to get off no any further forward than where they and I think that's the only thing I can say about it I said this a couple of days ago when when I am Rosa known says he next Allen My I think me more than anybody else thought this was brilliant signing for Arsenal angry I couldn't be any more disappointed in holdings of to not get rid of now I get rid of him right now because a luxuries he's available and I think the longer you wait the Mall Mac big clubs looking to make changes and if you are for argument seek Real Madrid in the NFC decide they WANNA get rid of z Dan for whatever reason and all of a sudden has a choice to between arsenal and Real Madrid all all by your Munich or whoever else it may be I don't think is very high on top of that list you move no I think you have a realistic chance of well that's the difference between the same bore they're not quite in the Geno when when f an allegra or even a portrait teen or whoever ever is somebody system jobs available this all limited what else for nothing else right because I think for a couple reasons one that are that are bigger and better jobs in two as heck of a job to try and real walk in mindset in Liverpool England yeah so taking over power is so low really at the bar was aluminum Richard over because Van Gogh had taken it as far five is you could go stale doctor talk for there was nothing else other than the cop that the thing is though Craig's to that point you've got toward styling founding teams in English football other than that it's pretty out by less part who continue to be an incredible but outside of that it's it's as poor a league from from fourth let's see I I'm not being very kind of Chelsea here all the inconsistencies of everybody else who's normally okay we don't of the top four yet still struggling these calls of let's get it not for the lack of spending money particularly Monday nights richest league in the world isn't they you mentioned lifestyle could win for them today to win away against Crystal Palace they all points with Chelsea six pair ask in faith but they recognized what they wanted any made a decision by the way we're Brennan Rojas could do what he wanted and was whenever I'm Scotland because he's very good coach and you had the best team so when you put those together nearly one he also knew that they had a squad he can what with with some young youngsters unexperienced players in there and and contrast during I am talking about him here's a guy with a year of Rogers final I don't know I'm a fan of teams to know always but what he says at times whereas but at least he knows exactly what we want is crystal clear are and what he wanted to do a Swazi Celtic a no less deceptive no it's not always been successful for them in the long run but it's crystal is to clear to the players what he wants his team on this a good score place that's why we'll see in the will they are they finish until four do you still think and I still believe they will just come up short because of the size of the squad and I think ultimately probably awful and taught them who will not at the moment and I'll give you the make just enough to get them to get bucket but no distractions no Europe and these are the sort of games and they're going to get a win is easy I think they finished hopeful without question they won the top four footballing teams in the League and if you look at who challenge Chelsea slightly deeper squad guas but they have issues in terms of whether whether they could bring in reinforcements Januario or that being said I think are perfectly position to finish in the top four question in my mind a lot more talk about what happened in the Premier League of course tomorrow I believe Peter Walton movie joining us you can join us tomorrow away tomorrow we'll have two two and bigger stuff until you don't know where do I star found on the advocates Kirsten it is very lifelike then what does it said keep spinning in a scary really scary missing out on GEICO's easy to use mobile app you can manage your Vica policy whenever Iraq left we can just very deep in the ground happy gyco wean download the industry-leading geico APP today has left vying Munich I five one thrashing by Amtrak Frankfort yesterday seems to be the final Straw on those got coffee joins US Gab Nikko Choice to leave there's some strong reporting out of Germany suggesting that he went right and he he offered his resignation to the club too early hoeness and karl-heinz Roman and get and they accept that somewhere I think the reality allergies is somewhere in between I think it was very telling that after that horrendous defeat on Saturday neither home nor nor room and they spoke spoke out in public I think adopt point Kovacs really wondering okay do I actually have their support let me find out they spoke on on Sunday Sunday afternoon into the gate and I think it became very apparent that you know when when he said you guys want me to leave nobody said don't Nico you gotta stay and I think that reflects what was happening what what's been happening Byron for some time is it Haas Gab obviously one double last season Thrash Spurs Saying the champions Lake feel sorry for him I don't I mean I genuinely I very rarely do I feel sorry sorry when managers of top clubs get get fired in general I mean they're the privilege did they get a tremendous job of big budgets yes they won on the double last year but I think they never really they never really got clicking they never really I think played paid to the standard others one school of thought that'll it'll say well it's the ghost of Pep Guardiola they'll compare everything to the time that was there and then they come up short but but the reality is I think this was several several notches is below that and they had the opportunity he he had the players in he's been unlucky with injuries this season and it wasn't the greatest of transfer windows when does but I also think he didn't necessarily do much with with what he had thank you open cans of Worms vis-a-vis for example the Thomas Muller benching Ching that certainly hasn't helped him either and ultimately you know have really really high standards and and he came up short speculation about who is going to come in and replace him then your top well respected well connected journalists saying like the time candidates ten hug at ice well he's to experience Allegra his priority is England Environment Gem speaking coach lost but marina after winning in many countries Germany could be a challenge what do you think I'm rather there spectacle skeptical now look the reality is nobody you gotta take what clubs say with a pinch of salt but Biron have been very steadfast they wanna play a certain brand of attacking football something that's in line with what we see from a lot of other top clubs in the Bundesliga with the high pressing that the high tempo front foot football that's what their bill for and I think they would look at marina and probably a legacy as well L. and say well do they really offer this I suspect that they're gonna go with the number to flick for awhile and take their time looking thing at other at other candidates out there and and make a decision based on that I certainly don't expect them to one hundred eighty degree turn but you know what early Ernest has done one hundred and eighty degrees in the past so anybody's guess worrying here's a bond make any sense essentially by a big big clubs big personality wants to get back in would probably barring a disaster success there for all the points mentioned it could be a problem but you know I don't think he would play football as some of come to paint them with recently because players Yeah Ucla players and what he's been working with recently would it be a Clo- Guatemala style by half defined what they really want and try and find a balance marina mix Norio sense to me at all as got put if the ghost of what you're still hanging over by Munich I don't see marina as is being the answer for that at all they're just two different I don't see how it works stylistically final thoughts on this from you gap the guy they wanted wanted was Julia obviously he went in a different direction I there was a suggestion cove which might even go in the season others are going to put forward Ralph rang nick although although I think that's a love story that maybe maybe comes too late at their respective stages career I genuinely think they're going to look at this and look for somebody who is both German speaker and a safe pair of hands who's familiar with the Bundesliga and is in keeping with with what they've been trying to do really since pepe arrived when you say Ralph Hasenhuttl maybe a lot more on this subject of course on the latest addition of the garden tools podcast I believe it dropped Mara Serena take on on a breast your unfortunately for football we talking about here fifty four minutes in a Mario ballot tally of course join the club in the summer on and take the action to the second half he just has enough basically of the monkey chants coming from the home supporters kicks a ball and ends the crowd clearly saying he's frustrated by the abuse that he got throughout the game in the end it was teammates and indeed opposition plants clashes persuaded him to stay on the field game would continue after a slight delay and then in the eighty fifth minute Mario ballot tally would find the back of the net seeing would lose to one I suppose nicest sponsoring hand to those who jeering him Verna into one once again unfortunately we're talking about racism in Italy and once again extraordinary quotes this is what the hell to Rona coach to save of the match about the fans they provoked him with chance and sarcastic chance but they would not raise this anything else is a lie cap so what do you want me to say even your age is is an idiot who doesn't choose his words well now even your rich was sitting adding he was sitting by the bench the racist abuse that was directed at Lee was not audible to the majority of people in the stadium and the people on the bench just because Mr Uric doesn't hear it doesn't mean that it didn't happen he's right he was subjected to lerone insults and wind up S- they kept chanting his name and stuff like that that's what he heard that's what viewers on television hurt however however there was that moment in the fifty fourth mimic as as you pointed out that he goes over by the corner flag and he gets racially abused this was picked up immediately immediately by his teammates by opponents by by stewards by fishing TV you said it was a short delay Dan it wasn't just a short delay while they sort exactly it was the application of of the protocol the referee halting the game calling everybody to senator the page and saying the next time this happens we are we're going to stop this game this game will be abandoned and this is this is encouraging because we haven't seen this protocol applied anywhere near enough in these in these circumstances so that's the encouraging part the disappointing part is is obviously the reaction of your age of the of the Verona president isn't it once again made it all about the city and saying well what could I possibly do a couple of minutes well how about first of all you know you go and you show some solidarity already with somebody who was racially abused and you go out and you commit to saying we're gonNA find these individuals and we're going to deal with them once again it's a missed opportunity and it's frankly shameful I fully agree with God who hits all the points in dealing with this issue and white continues to be an issue in Italian in football how a referee stops a game and correct application of the protocols that guy brightly point showed stops game speaks everybody in the park walk and still push game has mounted Joe Jewish coming out and saying that is simply beyond me now it's on the Italian FM I'm the authorities to make an example here in because the way I do things that they failed to do in the past otherwise is we keep seeing we keep seeing these issues we keep having these very same discussions and it's it's damaging to football world over OBA in all honesty the even if it's solitary examples where these things continue on low to Festa uh I think it damages the degree of the give now I don't know maybe Gubkin answer I'm not sure I wonder if the officials could here because we talk over stopping the game but wonder if the officials could here before Mario Batali picked up all the ground or whether that was a reaction to him because if they're waiting for the player to take the fos- MERV to make that I move to then then chill that is wrong if the officials could the officials hailed the racist chanting before the ball was even when it got Mario Balata so you you see what I'm saying yeah seems to me that it was it was instigated by by over symbolic kicking the ball the grab my question was well they're going to do ah well they're going to do anything we well I mean I think this is a pretty critical point here it's I I spoke to people who were at the game and obviously anybody who watched it on television can concern can can confirm this what you heard was every time by the tally total touch the ball you heard a lot of booing and you sort of you heard a lot of sarcastic singing of his name not racist buoy that went on for the entire game not the first time I've been happens he's an opponent and there's a big rivalry between these two teams and he's from British says well what happened at that point in the corner by the corner flag is he was racially abused and we're never going to know whether other whether they would have done if they'd heard it if he hadn't acted up but this is what they wanna do is they want also encourage players to three two to report this there's no possible way the referee could have heard it based on where where he was standing the linesmen stewards other people nearby definitely hurt it because they came and told us and told US afterwards you would hope that the protocol work in such a way that whether it's an assistant referee or or an observer there could flag get up to the match official but this was a case of a player if you go back to the Bulgaria game timing's turning to the assistant say hey did you hear that I it's that kind of thing doesn't need to be somebody smashing it into the crowd it just needs to be a player not even necessarily the victim of the abuse saying hey I heard this and and hopefully that when action gets taken and like I said they written this protocol protocol in Italy it's actually a two step protocol there's no warning the match immediately get suspended when it happens but the problem is it hasn't been applied often often hopefully this represents change we want to check out album in the game and line and taking on twenty four minutes insane to this one Lattanzio as the take the lead here immobile day with a headache to make it one nil scoffing for me mobile she's a clever run one gets ahead of his mind very good header from plan very good form foam insights Guinea equalizer go yeah just deceives goalkeeping he's he's wrong they should finish issue one one however lots late winner threat to make it to one really rather finish again another

It's been an eventful and uneventful couple of days as still technically in eleven lockdown that the country said watching Sport with my partner he's been incredibly patient as I've listened to remix his of you'll never walk alone around the fly. Video. Jewish. It's been it's been of we can possibly share it. I. Don't think Joyce CD. Yet. But the but yeah, it's been. It's it's a strange thing to to wait. So long something that not really show with anyone you love that said the biggest thing I could take away from the kind of weeks. If I was was it was blinding four nil at Crystal Palace Yeah I mean I. I I just WanNa say before we really took into the into what they are filled. The destruction. Is The the the memories for me remember two thousand fourteen really well, and I remember watching I think we were at Palace when we we'd lost a massively it was three nil lead. Dwight Gayle. destroyed a heart's Suarez left the pitch and cargo was spitting. Fuming in-country as we left which again spitting once again. Jamie. and. Yet we are. You know I'll never forget like. Kind of looking at storage was the worst that day storage being this person he wanted to become good so bad and it was this journey in the story and you could see the stories for all the people just dissipating or the players. They just dissipated these stories left and Akon Radi believe the it landed on the palace much i. just kind of Bang it home even though we're twenty seven points ahead of what at twenty said, it was a policy much was going to do it and I mean yeah. Where do you want to start is for me chronologically makes sense it's the lads at right-back. Alexandrovna to pop in possibly the best free kick of his career. One of a a beautiful way to begin I'm interested to see what you guys think could hop on hours about how much this means to me. It's been a journey and and what I'd like to do is to more about the match though. Yeah. Well, think for me when we spoke about earlier. George. One of things that. I thought was a beautiful way of looking at it is this is the last time. These group of players will ever stepped on the pitch and not be seen as champions when they when they stepped on the pitch against city, they're going to be perceived rightfully as champions now, and this was their. Last. Moment of not being actual champions and you know will you spoke about how clock spoke about it after the match and my God what an? Absolutely. Destructive display and Liverpool at their very, very best, and we'll let you jump in. But for me, the standout point was thinking first six minutes or so as an attack and of six players inside the box lie. You know that just goes to show. Yeah was a complete domination from the minute. The whistle went anything KLOPP. Lovely to see him of just absolute beaming pride. Obviously, this didn't like George Saddam would have been nice for this kind of cement the most champions, but it didn't but it was a performance of champions elect and they went out with admission and it was the Liverpool that we've seen all season they have been able. There's there's a lot been said about the fact that can grind out results. But even when they do coined results, they us, we've used as word before US sixty eight teams and palace just had the life squeezed out of them in this game, and it almost became a bit of a celebration of the season. Like you said, the trend Alexander article. That of it did feel like it lifted a bit of pressure our thoughts and you could see the players get into that groove a little bit more after that and I think it was very fitting that. Managed to get that goal, he's been such a ray of hope. A symbol of everything that Klopp has done at the club. And then from there, it just was a complete performance there pressing klopp came out and said. was. The most complete pressing performance. He's ever seen behind closed doors, which is a lovely sentiment. Counter pressing performance ever behind closed doors. Yeah. Just a little caveat IBM there. But I mean this was just a masterclass class and it shows everything that Klopp is done for that club and the ties. He has the emotion that's poured out since just a bit even as A. Fan. You just been taking your off often say what a team I'm really glad that. This team will be talked about as champions and the record they could potentially go on together I mean George Hamsters I actually. Yeah I was I was about to say the kind of the thing our member because I was going to say thanks very much should be in a nice Monday night. finacially. Thank you. Many of us. To to a couple of friends. On funds an and there is a kind of general. Respect I think for what? Liverpool achieve much like you know when a watch the united teams of your up I actually forget the years because there were so many but particularly, the front three of Rooney renowned Tavarez while like I remember I honestly used to look in pure admiration and hope that one day we could emulate that we saw in under Vernon you guys were going for tap. Things would different back. Then we were starting not Kalani and always was shrinking on Monday night we were going out and dominate in matches with the likes of Berbatov come a little bit later like myself. So interesting as well as. But ended up prestige. We did an all these things and like it's I, don't know if the tables of fully turned. In a sense of like using that time because they can just turn back whenever you luck. But what Liverpool F S G KLOPP whatever you want to put it down to I think a lot of it, the the German muster. Liverpool of Bill, a very solid foundation, and one of the key parts of this is a peak performing twenty, six age group plus and above new peak age area for their attack. You know I didn't really realize Henderson into his thirties. You know this is a team that's. There actually peak. This is great like they've there's a couple of years. The arguable around that But when you have an attack that's combining as as a fluid peaking attack in every area, it makes me wonder what we could achieve next season and from honest I think the biggest thing in their minds would be doing once again. So they could have that trophy lifted in front of fans that would be that would be true too much. You know what? Graham ovation? Almost like unfinished business now definitely am. Georgia's just absolutely ruined my analysis that boy going through everything I've got. School Age Twenty to twenty nine peak in brackets new. To. The scored as well because you've got Melanin who's been there done it before he's the oldest in scored at thirty three and you need someone to talk one championships before he free. I still remember him. Lead is a sixteen year old. He. He took the record didn't they win a when Bernie was the youngest player to score? Like sixteen however, many days milner later came on and did the same for leads in the same seasons arena record lasted like a couple of weeks. I think. I'm looking now as well. He's nearly played more games than city but. But. Now you you're in what you say about operates the clock but the Family Sports Group The thing they've come into Liverpool done is they've sold well. Another sounds the city thing to say, but I think before that Liverpool. One get in what would do for players the family sports group of sold well better players in, and you can see the quality that runs through the squad some of that Possum Stotz a ridiculous from defense and midfield it averages over ninety percent completion of passes, which is unbelievable I. Mean I am a friendly united fan because I do think Liverpool open absolutely. Fantastic. But I think if they've got a weakness, you can call it la It's their away form because they've drawn to in las one this season. Looking at the looking at the match against police one of the things that stood out for me is that if you wanted to take every player and show some on the best example of how that player plays, you could show that much because salad was like a solid best. Solid does familiar was doing what he does best I. Just. Fell every single play just like you did exactly your best job in the best capacity. You know. Twenty I think they made like seventeen tackles of a total twenty-seven in palaces, own half and shout out to to check. Is it check? Who got close this? You got closest in the seventeenth minute to actually penetrate individuals of box but didn't quite make age just outside the. Eighteen yard box you know nobody got inside the eighteen yard box is just insane. and. If this is the template to come then. Gosh. You know the standards going to be so so high, which leads me onto George asking. where? Live foods mindset now, they're on eighty seven points. They've got seven matches left. We've got sit your way at home Brighton. Away Burn. Arsenal way. Chelsea. At Home Newcastle Way Possible hundred seven points on. ARE THEY GONNA go free or they gonNA maybe get the youth in Elia Nico Zucca. It's a it's a question I keep. I keep asking myself I think. It's a it's the the thing is, is that Liverpool fans so much in the past I've been so hopeful of like this kind of diverse they want to see the youth in the cook and the strongest team in the League and but you know when you're in this weird position where you just win the league with seven games to go the fastest ever. It's this extremely strange position I will say is that club is is a guy that it tends to kind of do you think he's doing or at least I think how you think he's thinking People ask him things. He tends to say that he is involved by the season bothered by that. He's he's quite stoic in his approach in that sense. Now I, think it will be one hundred percent on that man's Mar as a glorious champion the. It'll be on his mind together send Syrian point tally and I think it might be on his mind to to potentially beat the event is hundred two point tally. Which I think is the record nationally, I think that was set Baloi I. Think it was two thousand and four, thirteen, Fourteen Event Esteem and Jurgen Club has that in distilled in play these targets he knows easy target must apparently it's it's a very prominent feature of his backroom staff as well to constantly what target. So I think he'll go for it I. Think we're GonNa see the likes of cater come in more I think we'll see the likes of. Necker. Williams. At right back. Thinks outstanding with potentially Alexandra on. We'll take the other night that the things I hope to see but he wouldn't deviate far from the rotations. He's been using which Oxley for. Saleh For me nope swapped out for a regency so. I'd love to see his that Santeria Let's see. It's exciting the way. Shall our as well to his his rotations because rotations a flawless all season and is probably what's kept you. So relentless is just the fact that players have been fresh enough to maintain these almost perfect standards just a quick shower off just a quick question for me to you, George. We've talked a lot about Trent and. Tell me is at twenty years old I mean twelve assists twenty years old and and nominate into the. Believe. Where did you see his future? Staying on the Roy or do you see in dropping into midfield? I think that I think given how exciting Nickel Williams or neck oh I'm not sure how to say his name is it right back that's the only reason why could see club engineering some sort of system where he could push into sent amid or into right center made I mean. All I. Personally think that with this Liverpool team, if we discussed weaknesses. I think that we do have a weakness in midfield. Now it's not a weakness that scene is lose any sort of ground in the in the League but in the Champions League on a couple of times against elite fences. Awful Hodgson's Palace Riggan Really GonNa test is too, but we did see against nonchalantly Everton the other day now, the type of passing systems and the type of. CUTTHROAT decision making passes the Chubby Lonzo estimate back in the day. We've missed that for longtime Henderson a good role of fillon areas. One hundred could job with villain areas. Alexandra could potentially come in and excite that position change things. Those players are getting older. Will they do that? It seems incredibly risky and I think that Clugston too much work to revolutionize the fullback game. In the national save you know the the way that fullbacks performing his teams I think he's done too much work and I think I think it will stay there and I think that the Author the game will change around it quite lock. It's it's a nice where in the lobby piece of artwork that you've done Chris as well. Actually. But if there's anyone who who's nice way of signing off Liverpool of achieve this this season, it's A. It's tarrant Trent's Dhabi isn't it? Yeah. Name across my shirt. I believe Trent Alexander Arnold too difficult one. Let's move on. vk plaudits to live full and achievements. Independent Liverpool success obviously, everybody watched the match on Thursday Chelsea versus city Man City. That is Chelsea came out winners to one and the sounded Liverpool their first title in thirty years and I just found this game absolutely poor say in from start to finish. From, the off. Chelsea set up with forty three. Cherie down the middle villain and demand who have just fallen in love with Pulisic of what a player. And on on seaside, they start with the front three without really recogni strike her they went with silverstone in. Morris. Question marks over whether that really works tool a think what came out of this is the brilliant solicit on the question marks of Muncie Defensive Unit Defensive Now Think are no. Will you know you've got question marks over Audrey? But less star on a on a positive. Folk when Christian Pulisic came from from dormant last year I, don't think there was a football fan who wasn't excited that he was coming into the league. You know he it exploded. On. Dortmund seen being therefore since his since youth is Nathan quality broke into the team at the age of sixteen. Khanna tremendous talent there and I don't know if it was because he hit the ground running so well, and then he faded a little bit and just say faded but I mean adjusted and adjusting to. Speed of the League and just living in a different country as as we talk about. But this guy, you still wait in seven goals this season. And every time I watch him, you know mark and I talk about making a difference when when you're player and he is someone who makes a difference and if I think Gosh, they're going to have. And VERNA and him up front to play around with next season. We'll is excited. Yeah. It was really interesting. Coming into this, a lot of people seem to be into the restart. Sorry. A lot of people seem to be down on Chelsea and everyone was going to say you're going to overtake them. I think they'll be the team to fall out and they've come out I think was. I'm not even any names that were. I I wasn't sure I'd I've definitely been down Frank Lampard at times but? They've come out and they've looked very good. Implicit it's been a massive part of that and credit for Franklin Lampard slip in I. Think you. Quite right in the fact that he burst onto the scene at Dortmund almost with Hawk Hogan I am a real, American? came out and just like this great American hopes that. By the way where? Thanks. Woman Day. And then his started fade bit and it was a bit of a strange transferred to see him get that big move to the league atime when his star wasn't is brightest and he hasn't come into Chelsea hit the ground running. Watching that game and you're absolutely right that this was a game where it's probably the first actually watched it forgotten that there wasn't a crowd really felt like a fantastic game. dated. Whether that was because the title was on the line those mentions of Liverpool at the hotel watching it and things are that I don't know that it was a fantastic game to watch. Police, it was the biggest part of that and his goal was absolutely scintillating the way. He can carry the ball at pace in dribble with both feet is so so exciting to watch and that front nine is going to be dangerous. That one V one. When he was through just the little dummy drop, the shoulder and away and the calmness composure in that finish it was blessings news. Amazing. The wages robbed his foot around it just a curly in that far corner was just. Textbook sociopath. Is Hat trick against Burnley earlier in the season he. Capitalizes on a moment just like that a mix up between two defenders insensible when breaks close to goal but it's interesting template for it. One of things that are looked at and the thing that strikes me with police it is he always seems carry the ball really really far always think whenever he gets on the ball is actually distance in which he carries the ball. So I went through the league goes looking at the heavy hitters like. Zara willion Allinson maximum a trail ray. Grayish. Also those kind of attack plays and despite only plane the way behind on minutes he's played about thirteen. Full onto ninety minutes. He's he so dangerous you progresses the ball think like two, hundred, twenty, three. Just, superb and he's always trying to break into the box. That's not. So he tries to to gain entries into the opponent's box. Good George. You can't do this we or you would just busking annual Liverpool glory I did of course, I was I was very much attentive the. Yeah it it was. It was weird because I kept forgetting that Liverpool were about to win the league because the mattress so good just really was scintillating as we've said, police it. Didn't catch him a Dortmund the signing was hefty sixty, million, I believe fifty, eight, million. So. He came with this tagline of of fast. Fast play extreme nick that accelerating player. was was, does anyone feel like police it at the moment benefit from having some like Livia Giroux who you know he's areas Joe Ratings are extremely high. He's Luckily Delay Offs and you know short passing game is a lot stronger perhaps than someone like Tommy Abraham who had built a relationship with Mason Mount I feel I feel even though Jerusalem he come into the team and appeared seven times Pulisic now is benefiting from having someone who leads the line a little stronger perhaps in Tommy Abraham. I have actually I think maybe he's going to be best suited to. To to more what they're looking for win in. VERNA. I think Jerry always be a superb Linka player. And I suppose years that great pivot where you can play into him and and fast plays move around in But I don't see. You can't tell me that I'm part going to sign verner and then mess around with Harbinger. Rudin Vernon I'm what not Agree I. Think she ruse you know. That the Jerus- come in a really strange time almost to show opposition position that Chelsea one only using timing Abraham that they only had botchy Warri don't even believe really comes into the picture as such. Sunny thrown out as this as this alternate plan Z perhaps. But, but it just interests me that someone is fast as Pulisic. seems to play a little differently when Jerus- leading the line at a reminds me a lot more of of teams which have benefited from that type of hold player, which we watched the great light Berber to mention Berbatov earlier and that that Ferguson Team Berbatov. Held the bull incredibly well allowing you Ronaldo's to plow. Pass. Players and it's devastating publicity similarly the other night I think he's class I, think van and police. It could definitely play with chivalry but I also think that the creativity that they've got coming in Zaire is going to be absolutely key to that front three and I think he will be able to play number ten perhaps zero up top perhaps tummy I think he will still get bake gametime. But yeah, that's that front line for Chelsea's going to be so fluid next season, which is going to make them very, very strong. One of the things that the vanity you kind of made me think was. Chelsea, such a record of failed strike. Do you go back through like? So. So many players have gone there with a lot of hype. Back to the earlier Abramovich, days. Maybe drop. Only one that's really worked out Acosta. Yes. Had some very prolific seasons but did it could be really really worked out for him at Chelsea furnace different gravy. Know. Guys like everyone who forgets Andrei Sherlock is what like the that? You just don't know you just hope Charlotte is not team Verna. Under Shell is still came with a law pedigree and let's let's forget team run is record he team run is only just I'd get becoming mega prolific. He's he's been teetering towards or he's twenty four but let's let's say. Let's say right blood's go task on his hands. The balance between rich was I h position Verna. VERNA leaving leading the long hair, where does that leave locks Tommy Abraham? We still have other attackers in that in that in that system. I believe Patriots Aroma. So he's Kinda out and Williams can leave. A lot to balance with. Will I kind of feel like something's? Going to be. Twenty, a favorite team. I hope it does because. I wanted to work. I don't want it to work I just maybe they could take the mantle from palace elephants graveyard of strikers maybe. Maybe while while. Team I've. BEEN BANGING GOES since. Two thousand sixteen seventeen. I'll think he's Torres was. Saw Him. Do you know what? Georgia's a theory about what happened Torres sorry. If we're if we're going to go down this about do remember sharing it that you said that when he left, there was a collective like moment of. All livable funds in the world just like being so angry about an all that negative energy just stayed with Torres when he went to Chelsea and he could never get rid of it. I can vouch for that because all so. For that because kitchen joe when they signed remember George. Strait. Josie. You're so upset I tell you what that's a really good segue into another really strange to flip it onto Manchester City's defense of another really strange transfer saga is emerging today only five hours ago we've got absolute plethora papers saying that colored Doklam Bali's pretend transfer from Napoli to city doesn't look like it's going to happen and it's at Lea- live potentially lodging. Lovran against it now whether or not it's all speculative. It's good to stay off these things a little but city's defense in that game. It was all all right and it. It needs a low of work I. I think you guys have touched on it before in a previous port. Put it shocks me. To see how our of torch now of communication mendy particularly as with his back to. Center box rather I, think he's a massive question mark I. Don't think he'll be there at the start of next season. which begs the question is in chen-kuo enough or are we talking about another expensive upgrade? And begs the question of you know what we do with Fernandino. Is. He remained in Santa about position if that's the case is. Working out as a satisfactory replacement for him in midfield wash your thoughts on on the robbery situation yeah. Every time I watched. Feel like he came in hype in obviously. Caucus. So Roger, fantastic midfield three, four, athletic I when they played and sometimes it's a four. And he's come in nothing everyone kind of thought that was going to have missed this books gets type player, which is completely solid could dictate the game as well as having this physical presence and really solid defensive protection to offer the back back line, but it hasn't worked in he. He's not as mobile as Denia. He certainly doesn't read the game as well. I do think is passing is very good and I think there is a player there that. Perhaps you know we talk a lot about the climate period for players. Give him another year absolutely. But I do wonder whether they will go down the route of A. Bit More of a stopper over San Antonio multiplayer I'm obviously massively in love with Wilfred indeedy and I think he could thrive there someone that would just off of that complete protection, but they are going to need some sense box in the left back as well. My opinion and car walkers getting there as well. So it's Whether consult can fill. THOSE BS Remember Manchester United last. season. Looking around for defensive midfielder would fit the mold and improve the team and it drifts gay attitude was available in PSG. Snapped him up. For a very low fee and immediately improved the team mobile central defensive midfielders love that there are few available at the moment and you agree with you well, you can't argue though that would improve the team because that seems to be real lack of marshalling which is something that's been the linchpin for that team for so long Refund Dino the movement of Defense and marshalling people over to the Roy over to the left over to the Senate to stop attacks and I can't see how that's going to improve without signing. I do think that. Without. A resolution to Finito in midfield. I think you'll be a another situation where Liverpool now seem to be an ascendancy of players. Being used in the correct positions on I. Think once you start steer away from that. You start to you can have a great manager Pat Panic can make it work but after a while You know does it does it starts strain. Is Gabrielle Jay. Z.. Ser- to Kinda guerin moving on I. Don't think he is a no use a very good striker, but he just doesn't have the authority that I think city need as a for striker be mobile striker. I'm not saying you classic kind of physicality has to be type of mold but someone who can authoritatively lead the line. It doesn't have it for me I. Don't know how much Gweru go in his his tank I don't know what you think. He's got another year the highest level not set, but it's it's whether or not he remains or whether or not. He moved back to Argentina. I'm fully aware as his family Argentina so whether it's now the time has come for him to go up. I want to wind down slowly on the family life. With replacements. I don't see any form. Honest. Dunk thing has uses the answer I think has a very good player, but I think you need. Still with him more experienced striker to play alongside. I'm maybe the only one I can think of, but again, it's not really the destroy. It's going to hold the ball up for you. It's more of a plan. The last man at very talented player is the man that struggling at Barcelona in Antwon. Whether here to for months city I, don't know it's not really working at Barcelona in my opinion at the minute for him, and that's a guardia asks of team. And also, there's a financial implications of someone getting someone like end. I'm not sure who they've got in their in their ranks at the minute who would be fulfilled that role beyond. Over say has. Is So. It's going to have to be an investment, but he does at void donor I honestly don't. Know. Well. Like we said, that was a rather congested primarily fictious last week we had tottenham away at West Ham with with hurricane on a sync into his knees. Run on to go with a lovely three ball and finish, which was good to see. Wolves continue with two wins to just mount really serious challenge. For Champions League places and are going to push away sheffield united seem slipped up another they've lost today we'll talk about them later on in Africa but a three, no defeat away to Manchester United on Wednesday as probably destroyed their comeback a little bit I don't know. If Chris Wilder spots is happy with the comeback performances so far, and we'll let cover any of the stories of the the to show when we come to these shores for these. FA Cup. Brown. But. From there I think perhaps we should. Look to move on across to the Bundesliga shows where. As we're still kind of basking in liveable tying up the title we we see Bay Munich Dune very much the same. But in a very different manner in in the sense that if we looked at the start of the season Niko Kovac at the helm of communiqu painted a very, very different pitcher for the other Bundesliga teams. Who must have thought? Yeah. Okay. This is absolutely great. Got A SPLITTER IN BAY? Munich? Team? Jadon Sancho firing in. Niko Kovac season with eighteen points from possible thirty middle falls apart. With a terrible smashing by entre Frankfurt and signals the end of him and incomes Hans-dietrich Flick assistant manager to your can love at certain points in the national setup and. God what turn around it's just unreal going through it. As we're looking into this, he's picked up sixty one points from a possible sixty six. He's twenty games. He's lost to an eastern one knows two losses were think we're in the first three opening matches of the season? Just absolutely imperious turnaround. By minute seemed to be backed, they're just relentless German machine. Again, there's just like just as the sun rises and sets by Munich Win Games and destroy teams. Is. Really strange to me that. So many players that are looked at. Undercover Watch and I kinda thought I'm not sure if these by Munich players Marshall that these are the kind of team that will eventually Joe. All of a sudden now, they just look like such a fantastic team. They seem to have a full squad of really good players as well. Someone like Alfonse Davies is come in and it's just revolutionized the left opposition. Again, we talk a lot about house. We took a lot of fullbacks are and he my God if you can have that speed of recovery. You can take so many risks. But. One player that has stood out to me that has been there for a long time and enjoy the law success. The man that beat Cabras assist record this season twenty one assists Thomas Miller the original routes like. Unreal. What's? What's a player like Thomas Miller has just been one of the most imperious impressive. Consistent. Relentless footballers of our lifetime and yeah. Wash out to him. He scored their final goal yesterday. which was a kind of came across an ended up he took a touch and it kind of bubbled up and he just stepped back to a right foot to it and. It into the top corner and it was so mullah. So by and Munich. And they've got a lot of players of our as well. The season you look at. Hand as he's struggled for fitness as well. I think when all of these players are coming back when the Champions League rose around, this is going to be some team to to try and try and stop. I find that with with with Munich as well that they that recruitment strategy. Symbiosis between this recruitment strategy and the homegrown strategy or recruiting youth as well as something that it's really admired. It's ready of my to the to the to how devastating it becomes because once you build a culture much like going back to club at Liverpool once you build a coach of youth working with Prince, which you see in here, you know in the in the likes of in the likes of funds Davies. Learning from from the likes of Muller and Co.. I mean donkeys thirty, one they you. They really do build squads and teams that work increasing by Isis and when you have a leader that can put twenty one assists on the board and takeout title. A World Cup winner. Like Thomas. Mueller. You're talking about a complete package right I mean it. It's GonNa. Be Really interesting to see what this squad do, and if they stick with the coach which I just believe Joe you, you have some strong feelings about Kovac. Yeah just think he. Well it's always an exactly what you guys have said about Mullah because you look at what happened to me at the start the season under coach and he just let the Thomas, Miller that we knew and all the things that you did it. He wasn't allowed to do. All he was trying to use them in a different way it was like. I think if you want to get the best out Bayern Munich, then you get the best out Thomas Miller and. His his fingers went just from. Just from a fractional of what he contributes no passes into the penalty area. Key passes passes into the funk third. Does what it just gives you every gain and. Goes from. Kovacs stifle. To flick you know just flicking the switch took for about word and and here he is. He's back and to think that. Bay Munich have achieved what they've achieved this season. In spite of their start the season. Is. On one side an amazing achievement for flick and it's an absolute enthronement of teams like Dortmund because as much Dortmund flouted. This was another opportunity that for whatever we can say about, Dortmund they failed to capitalize on. Yeah. I'm not gonNA waxed lyrical about Thomas Miller because we all know those statistics fantastic. But I'm just going about eleven dollars gay thirty four goes in thirty one starts this season not just in the league phenomenon return from an experienced striker that we expect. But also, I see powerlessness by Munich team with the Liverpool team looking at them. The core of the squad is between twenty three and twenty nine years old and you've players like now bray his second top scorer. You've got players like Gretzky Kinik Pavitt, they're all twenty, three, twenty, four kings, coma, twenty, three years old. This is a team is effectively future-proof. So. They're going to be challenging Liverpool European honors. I would say and I won't be surprised to see many by Munich Liverpool fornos assuming that both on opposite sides of the draw because. Like I said it it it is built for the future. You don't really have to do much to this Munich side of the next five or six years. Yeah I think that's one of the most worrying things as well for offer at all in this. Talk and. Munich now look set to dominate leak again and yes Dortmund have this really young exciting team we all know that players we all know the excitement that surrounds them they've got. Rain coming through as well as the likes of Harland while the Sancho is going to be one day now. They've lost Takimi as well that all of a sudden Dortmund gone from this like the darlings of the Bundesliga to a lot of. A lot of question mark being asked about them now and I don't know father is going to be the right man to carry leading them. It feels like there needs to change. They're not necessarily in the playing staff but the coaching we'll find out soon enough we'll because as a meeting on Monday between. Zork Father Sebastian Kehl. Summer and Vodka think that's Very. Good. German experienced. Thank you very much and they're doing a postseason analysis. Mateen. On Monday apparently. But the the C. Outsca is giving his four. To father and said that he is the man to lead open in the future. I'm not so sure for me really don't. I don't know if if he's just another good manager. And if you're going to beat Bay Munich, can you the great manager? A worry is now I. think they had. Great players. And I'm not too sure if they've got great players now a think. and. Look A. Activate is very good at what does I'm just thinking on a creative level. We've got royces star kind of fade in hasn't really featured the season. Thakin House out is is a really good player but don't think he's at an amazing play. He's not Jadon Sancho and for whatever reason centuries not playing he's clearly not injured. If it was to protect him, they wouldn't put him in the squad. So I think if you've got a player of Sancho talent. It's it's the manager's role to get that guy playing, and if you can't get and play and that's been a breakdown in communication to the level that you, he's not featuring in the capacity that years coming on a half time. Yeah. Jadon Sancho is a starter for teams and it's not happening. And How can how can they go from? You to know to get smashed four nil by often Heim and making A. Andre crummer rich look like. The I like that awesome. Heat map you showed US small. Super I, just want to drag you back to Earth Oregon has always get the impression. He's like you know when you car boot. Sale and you see like Amani stuff for sale are Kinda feel he's how old But you know it looks the same. Thing the weird thing is, is I think that the massively imbalanced? The, you have this. You have this extreme youth like nineteen and twenty for your lead scores okay? For Holland Jaden Saturday that's so young. So that this precocious young talent and then these these kind of agent heads homos invincible and so on. And Royce all fe one. And I find that I find that the balanced. Previously just commented on UNIX beautiful fusion of Youth and experience and not picked up pretty well on that kind of. Key H. around the twenty, three to twenty seven. That Gray Area Dortmund lacking the law and I'm lacking in key areas. And I think I think they're gonNA suffer I think I think father might be might be the wrong guy to I. Don't i. don't see back toback seconds as a strong enough thing for the legal I. Think probably the law the problem yesterday was there nothing to play for and you could see in Harland space matches few when they'd lost the title that he was. Law. Exactly. Happy about nothing. That's actually quite interesting because he is clearly someone is very driven and it's very much a winner even. How young he is he will be that driving force next season you look at dusk and his goal tally that has won by Munich games when they don't deserve to win games at the Ben's LICO thirteen goals in fifteen games for Harland since joining, he will be doing that for Dortmund next season. So yes, I. Think by Munich will be a force under the right management. I do think Dorman have the playing personnel to mount not. Challenge Holland their massive power that I think, Brandt? Has, been really good. It's been a really good signing and chance to write since coming in I still think there's a lot in Hummels Zach. Who'd still quality in this team? So I do think that they they should be doing better nothing falls on I had. Yeah just a quick for majors before we start finishing upon. It's been reported in the media and there was a press conference with the CEO of Almond and he did question the attitudes again against Hockenheim, which makes me question whether there's one or two players in the dorm squad. They've got half an exit light. You said we'll because the league's gone now. So maybe they're looking at their future now, the heart's not in it and I certainly felt that way with the last game we saw. Just the last point Dortmund may be Mara Gutter still only twenty eight not is. GOING TO BE Dolan. You feel like his stars of waning it's really quite sanders America yeah. Yeah. Yeah. It's it's dying like piece of roadkill in the road. It's kill. It's it's road killing the road roadkill. Yeah. Let's just leave. That's it. He's killing the road. With. With with to finish off the Bundesliga. Couple of changes around the top and Labor Kussin. Haven't haven't been really informed greatly. Last four drawn one lost one Gladbach seen to be in full last three, one three. Will know your big clapback fan and mock arose urged shout out for weather at the moment and what they're achieving. Yeah absolutely they've got really exciting team I absolutely love player her harambee. With bream, Berra's well able to contribute to that front line. That's such. An exciting cool marker. Rosa is my guy in towns of an exciting manage to watch I. Don't think he's ready for a move just yet and I hope that tour around player and Rosa all stay because I think that's a really exciting. Team to watch next season. I'm just really glad they got Champions League, and our hope that they can use been. Investment think someone like croissants going to buy Munich last summer for like ten million euros hopefully, this year have a bit more investment. They don't have to make this kind of sales. I'm wondering if they're going to be next Champions League's Atlanta Azlan to sorry. It'd be lovely with that kind of quarter trio really excite yesterday's. Fantastic. Blitz, teams on the way any for Lucas, more to break their hearts seconds left. Silence of Bavarian. Talking about fencing filters earlier. I was GONNA bring up as a car is impact on the on the clapback team and you talking about someone you can Marshall and move defenses from left to right. He does it bad and most I know I wouldn't surprise if he's not to put somewhere a little bit more competitive perhaps in the future a really. Shared sentiment nine up. On this team to to stick together for fun because. It's just so fun to watch them like it. It's it's it's fast fast football. It is fast football lesser. Let's move on from the been sleek and fast football. Let's hop on a plane with Ashraf. Keaney who? Again just to further what Dortmund Elise in is on his way to intimate Lan Okinawa seemed to take the place of. Antonia driven down down the Ryan side. What an asset he was to receive Dortmund and whatnot say he's going to be for container just think he's GonNa fit absolutely perfectly into contain system couldn't think. When you put it together you like. My goodness yet that's like us. Exactly. The Playa. Wants for three full three kind of shape that he plays. Them. You know moving onto. Syria. Will. I know we WANNA get to get to the hot topic, which is just having loads of fun talking about Atlanta way you see in the top of the moment of the of Syria with Ebay. Tentatively holding onto their four lead. Yes surprising that it is quite tentative. Isn't it? You look at the look at escort we talked the by me maybe. On the couch when they weren't performing even if. That that players didn't look that fantastic even if. You've had lost three in a row. Still Look Squad and thinking is probably the best squad in world football. Players. They have is ridiculous. But they are four points clear of. is thanks to drop important Scans Atalanta. To They had a really good win against determine. Let J.. But they want looking. I would say dominant until a red card, which was what really changed this game, and then there were some really good goals. That was a fantastic finish impolitic Bala A. Penalty from Rinaldo a really nice backyard assisted take a pair of a deflection and then going great finish. Delete look pretty good at four. Yes. It was against him and people could come forward in a very comfortable car in the ball. And then. The final goal of the game was the. Delicate. Header from from across from. Douglas Louise. I think they're starting to look a bit complete so I really hope these big games that they've got coming up there at home to Lance on July the eleventh. Lattanzio on the twentieth of July. So I really hope that there is some points to be dropped in that to make a really exciting. Time to chase the end of the season. But you look at players and you just think surely not surely they will run away with you. It's it's question marks over perhaps. Salaries. Management style in the sense that he the style of foot with eight hundred play mark that there was a period of betting in. Chelsea that people took a lot of time to to adopt to bring it. Eugene allowed into play that kind of really controlled. Movement of the ball switch play this tool that switching. Peniche with autre from Boston might be able to to move to a model closer to that. But again, it seems to be that's taken a bit time to bed in. Event to accept Kinda Saris method of play. Do you think that there's an element here that the midfield of you've agencies in Nice she good enough and it's something that you he's been is is pretty easy to highlight and I think that they had Sarah similar problems Chelsea when you move into these and it was clubs midfield to so hard to to to get right at the moment you know everyone they're always hard. They're always hot but but I think when you have a problem like Ph aging and Mitch weedy off his. Daily thirty three or is thirty three. He's older Ramsey's injuries a mad and Raviolis is fluctuates constantly. Well some career I'm not even sure what to say about some Kandara identity them. It feels good enough and I don't I don't know what you can do. You Know Sarah has a lot of work to do that. On the club has worked shortly before they can even adopt sorry bull and the and the idea of ticket Taco which is. Really important to flow through up spine, they've got to improve that midfield. I think when you look them at field, it's full of the also rans. If you know I mean you've got players like Robbie who has never the Stara. PSG He was always support mine. Ramsey another example is no good player but was never a mile is a superstar Ross no, he wasn't the top boy Kabira. It was always, Qadeer noser. as it was always the star in that and how his stars fallen by the way. So I think what they need is the one I mean the habit in pulp Pogba Kanye says. That an POGBA lost it. And I think they've never really replaced that they've never really had that one welcome class midfield to build around. We're discount Rinaldi from this as well. Roy. Forward. Yeah. Yeah. Completely discounted from the I mean youngsters like Benfica of C-. Came from the South America think he was at River Plate correct me if I'm wrong you're gone. Looks at a good young prospect. Again, I don't think he's ever going to be the main mind. So maybe it's time they do get that one kind of world-class midfielder who can run the show and dictate play from midfield and build upon that solid. Beta. They've got defense I mean they're synonymous with having a great defense and you look at offenders killing a minute superb Alexandro and they've got a good forward line as well but it's just it seems to get lost a little bit in the middle. Maybe that's where the not. So dominant in the League compared to the by Munich's Liverpool's. Bench, go whenever I've seen him. So I made to pick you up from Baka not river was. One of the other you know there's Argentinian furious if. This is I'm so. But Yeah I think his. His performances seen him. He looks very good on the ball. He's got six assists this season he is an accomplished. Tidy player. I think with someone else alongside them I think he could look very good. I think probably suffered for is a lot of change in philosophy. Go into sorry this season and I think it's GonNa take time to to get there. I'm not sure whether there was one hundred percent buying from the squad I think there is a lot of egos in that team. I almost feel like they have relied on the older heads more than they should have. You got plans like Dibella who is potentially on his way out minority looks like he's on his way out. So there could be a period of transition that. Haven't been hundred percent. Dominant Nissim salaries not in charge transfers anger control everything type of manager. Right Now but he will want his own players that he wanted to get someone ledger genia in right from the start when he took over lucky dead at Chelsea and I think the art is. Really interesting for for that because here's someone who. He can definitely dictate tempo. He is a fantastic circulator of the ball. Seen panics go the other way I think piano, which will pass the ball forward more adding Arthur doesn't necessarily take the risks that are champion asked would. So I'm interested to see how he will pan out by doing more salaries kind of player. I guess my my thoughts were that maybe it's always hard to instill a different tactical philosophy on successful team. And Essentially has joined do when when he stepped into Greece boots, which were massive boots to fill just ask David moyes feats. Yeah. Less not less. That's not that's not ask him anything. They probably would know the. Boy's death with some thin miserable. Like Emma Dale. Province. Moving down to second in the League is lot CEO and I just love the fact that Simonian Zarghee who was always in. People's like Szanto as plays. Never quite the career, even close to people and Zarghee, but still really respectable career. Is really cutting the mustard as a manager and got props for each achieving lot co although an I think probably a nice little crossover with the Atalanta. Much. Essentially. They they they go out gunned by the heaviest his in in town but it's nice to see plays like melancholy savage coming back to the forefront and starting to convince. What was clearly talent when he first got hit scene but seems to have now recovered a little bit ability to control matches. At done if you caught the Atalanta year much but it was an absolute joy. My heart is still beating. Twice the rate should be because of that game it was obsolete. Tomorrow, what Georges? Elia. Speaking of savage, he hit a fantastic goal in that game like this strike the dip in the sweat absolutely hit my first instinct was occupy should be saving that because it came across him. But as he when you saw it from behind him, the angle was perfect because you just saw the just the dip in the sweater keep it didn't have a chance and that was after A. Really entertaining own-goal from during were just came across the box and he just smashed it. Smarter. That milinkevich savage Goto I watched the highlights. Got My fell I'm a little bit football insane at the moment. So squeeze it in Lusa Berta is past was was an interesting one he he? He's Liverpool reject I. Don't know whether you guys know this and and it was really interested in seeing come to come to lie in this last year score because I really liked him in the Times that kind of come come on the pitch at Liverpool he's incredibly composed. And it's just it's just you know thirteen assists this season two and he's a in that peak peak part of his career Yeah. Just a special shower from really I. Think I think quite special player. He's one of these fringe Spanish plays too. You know like is he going to break into a? Memorable. Woke up winning by Spain squad perhaps not. But at what he's doing a lot co is just it's fantastic and yeah that game was. Pretty nuts pretty nuts I really hope Syriac nights with a few drop points from its all to play for. Just time they take the field Atlanta. You're just sure there's going to be goals and when. Up. I did kind of think this is probably have been five minutes of the Games of continuing. You just felt like actually the way I answer plane they easily score three goals and get back into this game and that's exactly what they did. Obviously, it was just such exciting football and they dominated a sixty one percent possession twenty, four shots, twenty-three chances created. Four hundred and sixty five accurate passes eight four percent pass succession by they would just absolutely dominating second place in the League when you think lots Yo have. Immobile having superb season. Go score at the moment possibly will be Capo culinary, which is just like the best word say isn't it TACO scorer? And to Outgun, then you look at top scores and. Have Such. A spread of plays marielle potter. Twelve goals and over They are just the most short heavy team in Europe. Let's get onto Atalanta. Average nineteen point eight, five shots. Match. That beats sit eight Napoli by Munich. You've eight Madrid Bossa. Just absolutely unreal only against today us, incredible I didn't even that's just loads of fun looking into them. Only at city of the registered single figures for shots in match the season that was eight. And the lowest in the League was fourteen. I was going slowly knowing that outfield players average over two shots per game. What's a really interesting point? It is Gasperini and. I'm what? Chief and you often think like who is this man and and if you took him out of the setup and plunk them into a big role like he suddenly just filled the boots of someone at United of someone, would he be able to achieve what united won't which is high scoring games but is there just is just a belief. Atlanta is it just? Is it just a pure belief is and it's a beautiful chemistry, right? Well, Gasparrini. Was He was at Genoa when Melito I went to Genoa before Melita went to into and it was the season Melito hit twenty. An midfielder had Tiago Mater. Rich and there was like a template there for what he's done here. That was like back in. Two Thousand Eight two thousand nine and you can kind of see the east found the players almost to. Not, not necessarily fit that but this is like. What he did that just on, you know overdrive because. You've got you've got these cool tat of players who between them just dismantle teams. Just, with sheer firepower, one of the interesting things as well is that a lot that goes coming from the follow up, follow up shots so she saved she. Shoots fleck follow up school. It's just insane to think. Potter. Papa Gomez, you know these guys who? Old That's what I love about. Illegitimate, you want to practice twenty eight murals twenty eight. Gomez. Thirty one it kind of makes a mockery of of of what we hoped about, which is like young. Bundesliga brats pieces all about you know young quick attack in Thailand and and he got voice heads making really smart decisions when they play really good ball retention and shock creation. and I wonder if there must be a level of. Toughness because. They just dish out the goals. On fifteen surpass thirteen along with Marielle. But it really is a joy to watch any listeners you who aren't familiar with with Atalanta. Checkout Luck City Atalanta. Champions League. That's less like a nice standpoint and from now, you can kind of just explore more but any anyone else on on the Atalanta love train it's leaving. I am I just I just wanted to quickly say the Champions League. You know. Wouldn't it just be beats food if if they did some in there and we my fingers and toes appeal crossed for for an exciting, that's Lanta. Performance in that I just wanted to add. Piggybacking onto use had really severe noise CONNAH's team Athos. He's got them plan together as well because clearly that squad, there's no real standout superstar networking in that they all play for each other reminds me almost of what they're doing if. What Lester of done over the last few seasons I mean obviously lester the talk, win it five, thousand to one. No one expected it no one expected them to move on from there and obviously they're doing things in the pre leaks dylan there amongst the top six clubs in there and it's kind of a similar structured what they've going that yeah, I guess it kind of as in a in a sense as well and I like to know this similar population sizes around them and followers and so on. That's teeny tiny. It's a Bergamo, isn't it? The city of Bergamo? Lago incredibly complicated tactical systems as well. I'm not even going to pretend to understand CASTELLINI stops play because that superb movement fill in spaces when defenders move on with. Bull. But yet really excited. I love it when teams like this come along just every every now and again you get this kind of a now you can call it dark horse inquiry hips team you cool whatever. But those teams that release their Monaco with forbid, and then I actually there for an Atlanta picked picked at the Monto just cool attacking teams that doing cool. Different stuff just to kind of close Syria is I think described it to to will and a mark it was like. It's it's Kinda. The slow rise of Christian Erickson getting back to is really good self. At. Insert When you with your? Slip with Mrs and you see are out with luck. Really hot. She's lovely tone. And of watch the of him watch the three three. Against Swallow and and. He was theories about your was in he gonNa make just great little interactions and he's not even got close to to where he is very was spurs but you can see it and I was like Oh. Yeah. You're you're going to do really good things now just laying the ball into the cartoon stuff you know. Yeah. That was hard is the only place I've seen nutmegger keeper from a Corner Yeah Yes absolutely. Beautiful. Well a finishing up with. Essentially Christine Erickson just. Sticking the dagger and again. Onto a fun topic of today. The greatest oldest most special memorable insert prefix here. Cup Competition is here. It's the FA Cup guys hold your horses now. Not to be too sniffy is really lovely at a kind of just forgotten about it because the idea of the league's SA-. So enthralling. And to think that the cups are kind of coming back into life as well as yes. Just going back to normality a little bit but it's still feel very strange the round of finals held over the weekend starting with. Norwich at home to Manchester United. No, you always cool this. If Montessori just watch the highlights morning. And couldn't get over how much you know. It's an essentially struggled to break down. A Notch team at Donahue, he wants to jump in and kind of climate all these defense. Far Away Lot. Oh, take that. When you look at it thirty seven shots, Manchester United had so I don't know how we can consider that struggling to break them down and less local mention our previous parties, people out Bruno Fernandes taking potshots from outside the box and not hitting the target because only a of those shots were on target. But six. Yeah Sixty, four percents possession. Did catch. Of gotta a bigger demonic Garner the I. He's been brilliant for Manchester United didn't think he would be. five goals in eleven appearances. A thing is is a great return for striker on loan or wouldn't. Really want to sign him permanently. I think he's been a good loan saw in. But I do find it odd that will looking at panel is. Until the magic comes up from. Buddy who scored again. Who Scored Alaska? Maguire, hiring go of course was yeah. Yeah until Maguire stepped up. Towards the end and one for them but this is a team in Norwich the. Bottom of the league in conceded fifty six goals how you can get to the verge of penalties against a team. That is when you're club of Monday night stature is is hard to digest for me think there certainly needs to be Mubarak. Going forward for new Aaron Breaking these teams down awful. They were really poor authorities pulled for months. I Dunno about well I just found that the the lack of guile and the lack of. Lack of energy and the final third was it didn't translate well at all onto the pitch, the the plan. Yeah this is exactly my issue with social and people get excited about united the minute because I don't think. I'm not necessarily bad. They threw out the score gladly agree is A. They flats to deceive, and this showed that the depth that I have is so thin like you put matter is gone his legs are gone I. Absolutely love him but he needs to go to to quit my friend and he needs to go out to Chinese Super League massive wage, and then donate all of that to his charity because he is not. Anywhere near privilege stand anymore it breaks my heart, but he's not. Arab by a really want him to be good but he's Basically. Our Web design a call in gave a shout-out tim crew who basically turns into vintage David Seaman every time he plays against Monday night. which was very true yesterday, and that speaks to you to your shot count. Mark. But. There's a such an over reliance on Brunette Fernandez seven shots outside the box. Yeah. Love the fact that he is like. Someone, he doesn't really play football player football video game. He just gets the ball and passes forward and gets the ball Ford like straightaway every single time there's no like reserve fitness in that is just WanNa go out and score goals, and that's what we're here to do right and I do love. I Man I think is what makes him so endearing but why is he playing one hundred and twenty minutes in the FA Cup when you are really chasing the top four down in Chelsea looking strong together out there understand it. He really is going to become so relied on in so many matches, Bruno authentic of seen a general really reminds me actually of Luis Suarez transfer. To live obviously George's liberal dream but when we signed a player. The every single person around me knew was class, and then he got on the pitch. Go to class and finance very much that type of play for united however live of from it to you know relying on players was. A massive downfall of the scored for about five seasons. You know we had torres and then Suarez, and it's not a great thing to to fall into an united yesterday looked lacking definitely. Yeah and it was only when Publica- monomers able to show his quality as well. So he had a really good performance from the bench marcial also looks really good. Yeah. He looks great man he absolutely loves playing for transfer. I think speaking on all is well, just before we finish up on that. I think one of the lads said he looks like he just. Pick the team out of a hat in the changing rooms and then says. Cornyn lots go out there and have a nice time and just played football in enjoy it and from his body language on the sideline. kind of that might be true. It doesn't seem to have the passion that other managers have when the Sima Plan and that worries me. I wouldn't be buried. He's doing a great job. Keeping the. Gum. Any any manager that can instill his entire back four to shoot on sight. Is. A good thing I think you'll back full should always be she in instead of strikers just like an all the players shot yesterday like wise. Fred Shoe Invoice Bailee Shoe Invoice Maguire. It just smacks of like a free fool without really clever gain palm. Lakeshore even had across the went back to the halfway. Just. Really. Embarrassing Moments and it was strange because. Only up but this team because he probably not gonNA come out and be very open which they have been and they weren't. They just crowded the box and frustration. I did and it's what's worrying to see is that they united relied on Harry Maguire tackle to give them the win. It was basically a tackle ended up in the back of the net. I don't think they would have definitely gone our penalties as well. So it was wearing. Still can't break teams down I think. Sunday against him cruel as they need to. They need a Bruno phenomenal. Player. Sowing the the new owner. Hey Super Todd. Well as Negative naming football because he actually can well, he he shouldn't be put himself download that. Pizza for wordplay. And I think I think Romero was at fault for that I. Think he's cool wherever to hair has Always just remarried critical. Consistent whatever replace the problem is time worship for them but talk Kim well. Enough. Career of not really having enough of some. Ever really. Arrive Romero. Yeah definitely. World's best number two. He was fine against last. Thing. I we agreed that tod campeau would probably improve most top six teams because I think he. Doesn't if it proves raw. Teams most most think not look. What you mean is Roy let's just say four out of six. I love him. I love him I think he plays with off think he plays incredible maturity is passing. Looking at statistics for four passes. He beats a lot of players in the primarily for passes. He he's not mature at all. That's one of the things I love about Oh. Okay. All right. All right. We're going into the mid white lines of the MINUTIAE of maturity here. Yeah, and he knew. He does seem to He does seem to have an immature characteristic but. I think telecom was I think he's impressive and if you if that team goes. Down then he's going to be an snip in someone's GonNa. It's a it's a wild side style signing guys come on they're all doing it. You know. Your mind. I think it's gone to your head. Lets me gone before a George spouts nonsense about Todd Conwell supertalk ten well, supertalk com. S Say. To It's Today's matches earlier on, we had Sheffi tonight lose away to Arsenal and Chris. Wow. That must just truly hate Var just truly hated. They had to goes off for offside in this match both fairly given very, very close. For me to come away from this match is nice seeing. A. School, just to kind of. You up really, mark, Think-i like since you've to go in. Funded. Grief but I Think it was smart. Wasn't. GonNa. Come. Get I think you might be me Joe. Yeah. Sorry Man I'm just GONNA put my hands up right now because it's I asked the first question regarding arsenal, which was what is pepper again well, take back. At guys osmose defending full chef goal. Is just so beautifully bad. It's so bad comes from a corner and then something happens a think someone misses ahead socrates. It comes socrates where he tries to play hits another awesome play And it's just like a don't know how awesome do I don't know how you consistently be so very, very bad at defending into. So many different permutations of that team different manager, different personnel, different coaches. Still. Utterly Terrible. Just yeah. As if fascinating Nice little move, you just give them new contracts. Absolutely that's the key. That's the key. I. Think. Mr. Keep playing the reason the stuffy the back. It's just a wonder isn't it? Just, yeah it really is. Nice Nice. Goal at the end for Danny Cevallos that was annoys. Passing move. To capitalize. On. The End. And we finish up today with what seems to be a win for. Chelsea. Against Leicester. Chelsea kind of looking good on all fronts because she really think about the phones that they turned in against city and a really quick turnaround with a good personality game. Chelsea starting to show that. They've got a good squad depth and if you think you in Vernon's, yes you've got really good squad death we saw. Today. For half match and billion plane You know a nice little feature and. The player who I think we spent a lot of time knocking over last week with Ross. Scoring scoring the decisive goal anything on box league is not allow but what can we say about Real Sparkley We've been talking about Ross balked if he is how he's he's the next big thing in England's midfield and he's never ever court delivered. Nice to see him get on the school sheet but. Can Imagine it's going to be the first and last for long time. He was a substitute today as well which might maybe that's his new feature. You know maybe he can only do it for a half. Maybe, that's what he needs. He needs to be the impact because I think he's he's not he doesn't believe any lasting impression on midfield week after week. Perhaps. Coming coming off in having been told what the impact is dependent on the on the on the first off perhaps it's a row other nine Russ Barclays, an enigma to me just as much of a Nicholas whether or not I never know he's growing hair not. In constant stasis. Between being bold and then having a great on the only person who's hair grows backwards. So it's a very confusing play on so many fronts i. think that should be as thoughts name Ross the impact Barclay from now on. So. That's how should be known. Any of the business guys on the on the FA Cup roundup all in general before we bring to close the show, I wanted to comment a little bit on Villa's form. AM The the form of the League relegation battle. But particu leave the I find that every game into. Is Victory. The drawing losing at the moment. Is anyone else feel like you turn on the BBC Sport Villa's played four games since coming back and seem to be the drawn or lost the it's just it's terrible times rust and villa. Feels like those two are going down now does it feels pretty now on the bachelor again, just one four point for me. Am I WANNA I wanNA say some positive about Austin today. What's in the game against Southampton Adding Katya. brilliant brilliant pressing for the goal forced the. Great Finish it seems that the minute are tatters preferring to stop him over of times. Overseer Nice Nice to see in English youngster getting the nod against such. Such a wealth of striker in the Premier Lake. And even though it does look twelve years old or think he's a very bright future in the arsenal side providing the improve on the defense. Yeah. Yeah. Fingers crossed. Well.

"Three today a little later. On more disappointment for Tottenham Hotspur plus the late drama in the buying Munich game but we kick things off in Spain me your welcome insulates edition of ESPN AFC. I'm Dan Thomas joined by Shaggy here's what we've got lots of losing one zero against me Llorca and the fact that that highlights really about awful header injury-time authority getting a yellow card greenman tried an upfront and all three would score shacking spoiler alert thirteen minutes into this once and it would be Luis Suarez lieutenants the score to make it three now rather easy for Boston it on in the end Abe Honesty Mayo 'cause I think Real Madrid offered an awful lot going forward and yes sedan had to make changes on your understand you sympathize talk from Langley defend slips and just allows greenman in on goal one-on-one with the goalkeeper studies himself make no mistake he needed that more than any life newbie primarily to go get him with a big win one nil over Real Madrid's more in that game in a moment but let's focus betrayed didn't really get going in this game each junior with a chance for New Jersey I've been the brightest that Real Madrid had on the park just didn't seem to have is shooting just dropped the show cuts inside the cover doesn't come over in time and he just shaves out into the far corner beautifully Ram Educate both ways picking up injuries during the International Break Nova Ryan as well so new faces Jovic given rest up from Hamas as well you'd need numbers core discipline so we take into injury time looking for the equaliser really tired with the headache keeping makes it comfortable the Frenchman of course Antoine Grease exactly hit the ground running as he's making the big money move from Athleti but a good finish hair given a helping hand ball they were no it wasn't as if this was Madrid second really battering down that Mueller undecided crossbar but that's about as good as good I'm in support either either flank I thought he he looked out of options and as a result out of sorts and I don't think that's something that's been psomas of your hair with a second yellow doubt about this sh nope not a jaw especially given where the park you're chasing the game finuoli early today this game wasn't about taking on Barcelona one of course remember Dennehy is suspended so it's a messy Suarez tall at the same time as far as white threads go you have initials junior on the park I would look bright who looked lively but just as I mentioned in the highlight pushing looking for something you can't allow that from three that much space wasn't there about how the problems politically in the problems we ain bell's good origin boots. Mariposa that would wipe slight so this is the best chance that Madrid Craig's APP pens them off the underside of the crossbar to really well on the didn't have a shooting boots on couldn't get that just right Hamas Rodriguez drifted can everywhere in the middle of the only ball he's not but as as much as you introduce new faces I just expected so much more yovich coming in alongside the place of frontier tosses result despite the fact they were away but they get away and puts them talk of them Taupo for Bossa Not really the story line today Real Madrid we season kind of questioning whether they were good enough and all of a sudden define themselves top of the table and you feel well maybe has has some figure this out unpunished and now we are at least don't let their own defensive frailties shoe as much as as did to against let's be honest mediocre don't the batteries exactly and he think that was the last time we've seen a good performance Real Madrid it's a long time coming the only park take in the second half and young to Suarez intimacy Jess Suarez then you had these plans who would imagine be hungry up hills themselves with these injuries they didn't each did nothing you know how much you mentioned float around a bit anything judge has been terrible since making the move and you kinda think well how is this going to solve itself around jerk as best they not very good talking about Real Madrid against Me Yorker so you can make as many excuses as you want about who wasn't available and why this result Alan with each go in midfield but seven minutes in Lago junior would make it one nil to the hosts a really nice finish by Lago drew one one uh-huh Natural Wiedeman not knows iskoe and then we've had oh concerns about Real Madrid defensively and ordinarily the able to keep teams on the back foot slightly the way to the far post a messy here comfortable easy and then ends livable this place look haunted no I don't think so too creepy girls game with that should not have in a month of Cindy's case a huge week isn't it for Real Madrid coming up of course Champions League action for the mid week after a terrible start to that and for a couple of changes and yeah and you mentioned but we all talking Madrid top to start at the top of the table Real Madrid I guess bottom of the table mediocre you've got to I'm paying and just to remind we'll be back with you tomorrow Steven Craig with me and it's only really one big game in Europe tomorrow and what a big matches so old Trafford Manchester United wondering which is Real Madrid is it the team that we've seen countries top table it was the one that we thought when crisis certainly the to start with me on the house they took a very good goal and then defended really well and you expected so much more from the no we left here offers and see the burner bow and then I think in playing affront to almost took away from from beds Monday space that he know me occupies and give them that he breath thank you creepy girls partners sleep in the car now we'd switch today for twenty four seven access to licensed allow preseason themselves and you just not quite sure what to expect but we all talking about this is the hard part we the national league this is the perfect time if you need to introduce players perfect time improve Poland's that if you have to introduce players you can brown's relatives as you see there to cash out on the half volley as does mark the end this call but still within this game with ten men you don't think it would be just as much as it did and again it's it's not as though it had possession but it's not as though that mediocre just bought say after the beginning of okay we have another one assaulted and that called not over tuned is simply beyond me I really do I would love to hear the officials agents says the premier leaks per second on Boston the table what in theory the perfect fix shift Pacheco potency no sight of bounce back nation of why that decision was not overturned because it's beyond me meanwhile what is beyond most people's comprehension at the moment four minutes to go in the game spurs equalised Ben Foster with the era of the questions whether or not handball Vulcan salted gold stands one one yeah I have no problem opinions penalty the penalty if you stop the margin is very easy to to see surfing that this is something very very tips again it's crazy it's such a weird one because we've talked about this so much over the past few weeks disappointing days what once again for Spurs dwell on that more in a moment but first let's focus on that penalty that wasn't given this K- Sanchez flurries had it's a question whether there were tough at the top of the table I'm not legally yes nothing's really accepted right I accepted but we we started when you have hurricane on the park and he can barely get a sniff when you're playing with five in midfield at home against Wofford yet somehow Kareem Group get together here we go hit the ground running but if you didn't see this game they would just so sung all yeah and the back end of last season but you see this performance and it's not just about a poor spurs team and bad form trying to figure things out that truly frightening fairly Siri Missing Anna Gyco Great Service with Geico you twenty four seven access to the spurs yeah it's extremely you take a look at the results of lanes just the one win and these against very mediocre science my opinion listen to all fields maybe you can sympathize with the referee Nazi in the hook by Chung but for vodka go standing here I think it just has dally at the top of the of the palm into shoulder I'm with the referee on that one so for a token doesn't get anywhere near the ball plays the not once but twice secondly hooking in how referee on Varda's weaves that off is beyond me it's their only victory came against Howson they just can't get it done what football tables I said shine this perfect remedy you would expect yeah international did you see how easily the constantly owed number that the back veterans era that he got away with again this is not just about how the rhetoric is that's booze have been poor for pretty much all of twenty nine thousand nine hundred just champions league run maybe disguised as some that poor form particularly. I haven't either I don't know how they work I was thinking is something audited but I hi bomb the Premier League of purposely sets clear and obvious of course is the words they use with that was clear obvious in to provide a bitter resumes gave a bit more yes but to your point is when we very critical of united they don't have those options I and you think wow you know that's a very good team this spurs signed his Co. equality in it none of them performances that you would and yet still spurs have them not just look at the performances but the results are simply dreadful what's been happening over the last eight or nine months if you compare what we've seen to depose a year or two ago even look at Spurs during the course of this season on their best results are two draws against Arsenal Manchester City that's where spurs are at this point mark from tastic finish the Spurs lucky here that a penalty was awarded von was consulted no spot-kick given I thought this is a ridiculous new decision that you come away from a home game with bottom of the table Wofford happy and thankful that you get a point that you didn't deserve champions thing oh what further able to just walk three midfielders as easily as do when you have experienced a a back threes as Portugal is able to put out however just six minutes in today's time to Cora will make it one nil so the visited one ball over the top takes the midfielder not suppose rare God could cost and of course I I coming up amid weak as that returns for the third round of matches being well for Manchester City it was looking upset a lot of people's fantasy size but in the end despite the fact they were frustrated Manchester City would get it done thanks looking to Champions League final it's hard to understand and at this point as big a fan of Pacino as I am I'm not sure how you arrest it's just like why defoe because everyone else is just dropping on them and they Boston Boston had no mercy and Greenman ready hitches try let's say have struggled slide there's nothing you she to build on this the thing isn't it we've been highly critical of united on this show over the last few weeks but you look at their song did I I from Alonzo and Chelsea's good form continues against a poor newcast united team maybe wanting to looking to get some kind of a result very coming in Fernandina or no natural defender has a center mendy returning from injury can Selo on the right Gabrielle Zoos preferred to guerin tighter in the Bundesliga eight does we have nine teams yes that's half the table always in just two points pounds fact wasn't an offer that terrible results against the rules Guadiana made a big changes big surprise at the back you had roles doc meanwhile Chelsea taking on Newcastle Chelsea the better side as you would expect in this game however they had to wait until the seventy third Do parolee so much more time than me I saw many times and for my opinions is clear goals in two minutes just before the break the first one coming from Gabrielle Zeus and then moments later what says from Raheem Sterling Now Lovely Volley trimmed avid silver disallowed eventually broke through in the second half with Markle Royce at the end needed a tremendous save from goalkeeper. Marvin hits to hang on there but they got the win and the table less the third wall coming from behind for a home victory to one over Burnley elsewhere today we saw top of the table. Gladbach taking on Bruce Dortmund the battle of the BARISTA's if you will dormant probably outplayed them had the upper hand at a couple of goals they win away to huffing. Hi It's not the cluster mess continues boy this Bundesliga extremely tight this year boomer in action as well West Ham losing against Everton Avidsson looking better by two goals to nil so you can see that defeat span you feel Deli Ali coming back here maybe gives them a shot in the arm you know just a new face a different challenge song coming off the band the crew so what this means is shock it of all teams can go top tomorrow if they win should top Sunday's say if it's okay I don't understand but to answer the question I'm GonNa go wow let's be there's really was Manchester City flooring best sitting Krista policy of themselves to blame minutes into half-time you want to get to okay if it's one and that means that moves them back right into title contention Byron Byron Against Oxford they go gold down inside a minute wells but live dusky pulls one macleod back they're still top of the table Wolfsburg level on points Obama Buying Munich remained third they had a chance ago Tom but for that late equaliser the breakthrough and it would come from office alonso interested in Pulisic involved his initial crush and then loans of phoned the far post I there's been no penalties by Var say Bobby Brown smoke season I'm stood thick this time fitness united it's extra time which is extra extra late today because of technical problems Craig would go nine one now but shocker hey yes what's more likely bruce you don't move up some fourth in the table for more on what we saw in Germany today let's say from Kabanov just when you thought it couldn't get any search now briones and other but then it's a to draw pegged back at the end and really a disappointing performance once again from Niko Kovac I held one or maybe you look at the other way getting away to Leipzig they advance in the Joe Join Munchengladbach after their last time motors just united dot to be fully deserving for Chelsea five wins in a row then Chelsea in all competition that lifts them up to there is no greens no Pasta no sugar no process boon some of your goo it's just there's nothing to eat and for those who don't know you don't want to show every day yeah just explaining his whole thirty diets leting true row are meat and a vegetable of some sort but vowed it's a high bar and I know I never liked it to start with I'm not sure if it was just ridiculous give the call people which is anybody at yeah without question if Israel someone's askin check out how was your diet going offer what's the problem with it.

Barcelona's Historic Humiliation

"Hello and welcome into. ESPN see I am Pei Murray and we have quite the game to discuss tonight by and running out eight two winners against Barcelona joining me to discuss Craig Burley Franklin off and Julian Laurent. We'll also be hearing little later from Tyler Adams. He reflects on his winning goal for life. Sake, which fight them into the semi finals but let's get started with tonight's Game Craig. We knew that buying with favorites going into this but could anyone who participated to be so one sided an award no. But I I think most observers as you said, Kim expected. By to go through and then people will the argument. When she could easily do even though that's team of not been playing well doesn't mess the effect Can you prove do something brilliant as the rest of the team going to be able to cope whilst the we saw the answer was no but. To lose in such, a manner is atrocious released a Champions League quarter-final via Munich have twenty six goal fifty percents. On argue, I mean this whole debacle went from goalkeeper test egg in her just continually gave away and the first half and. Put them under even more pressure all all the way through the team and I think nobody in this bustle out for an I include the Monitor, the courtroom stuff, and every player on the field and Can there can hold their heads up tonight? Kill, the this is rock bottom. I think. So I mean this this is defined the late for Boston are really isn't it? I mean we knew we knew by we're GONNA go through. I. Think we all. Look far too strong but never thought like that. We knew Barcelona. A mess but we never thought he was that buds we knew that he Had No clue But not not that bad. Really not like that. No. Getting older tactics, wrong naw getting the the players wrong not getting. Everything wrong. Pretty much and then, and then we knew some of this Blazer Boston are good enough for that kind of level. Nelson Samedan. Tonight, this must be the worst performance. We've ever seen individually in the Champions League, even the smaller credit like clues and other who else never I've seen player so bad so bad luck similar tonight from the first minute to the last the guy was just a disaster and I think. It was not the only one I. For me he who was the worst by far but with You can go anywhere against the team like buying Munich which is a machine unevenly by we're no perfect and we souvenir ability at the back at times the boss I was so bad. They couldn't even take advantage of that. Is that it then Frank Fakih Kcet an. Yes thing. I, think it is. Going to be otherwise you know I it was the case for the when he was the coach of Barcelona at about result, and he was out in the twin Guagua came up and that all the sexist. I think. Needs to go through big revolution because it's not only since fault it's everybody's fault all departments at the club. When you see that we come to too much the club county too much on one person on the messy and football change Liverpool should the first step the first view of the changing and now you see live? Sheesh you see by in Munich showing. Something else and bustling us to to change as well to make sure that the good to that to what in fact, they should have the first place, the world, the club who studied new row football, and they lost it and they lost it dramatically. As we saw today, let me just go back to your what the Jillian up a top of the show their tactics. Let let's look at how. Pico sat here and thought. possible on that we're going to. Play. By Munich. We know and by the way, I've been played public. Vassallo. Now because economy as clueless. Maybe, I don't know. Rejuvenated Thomas Miller playing behind Levin dossier sometimes and midfielder sometimes a number ten sometimes white player Gretzky and Tiago? Feel with Gretzky making runs from the medals they rotate the white players something's Companero Oh, the full box forward some things that don't. Plays not. And yet you think. As the bustle on the head coach, the you can play against US team leaving to top you don't have the ball, you can leave Lino Messy and loosely. Up. Talk when you don't have the bow. Midfield get absolutely flanked. Outnumbered Muscle thought and the movement was terrific they couldn't cope. So there was bud performances but it started with team selection. We can argue Paseo Greece men and others the Ben Whatever, we can argue but not the how the hell do you look at buying Munich and say right? They'll have three five and their at times rotate and they'll get those you'll leave to. Please talk and have four in the middle of the part when when when the white guys from Barcelona came narrow new went down the flanks. When when when the guys from fossil fuel four stay at white the little holes in the metro that's The goal came from the falstaff without volunteer. Gresko slicked over the top for nombre. I, mean to to have a coach select to say against this current via Munich team and try and play teams four, four two against up by Medfield was an absolute shambles was the first problem meant gills that he just did decide to his opponents which you don't usually see from Barcelona there had been talk about all week in the Spanish. Press of whether Greece would be left out. Thing. So I mean, we've I think we've mentioned a bit this week on on the show because as you said. It was leaked in the media in Spain they were going to play like that and we said. Why what could be the one thing that you could explode from from this by Munich side East highline these this is the highest highline in Europe. No one place higher than them. So what could you do? You could run in behind you have older space in front of you if you can get the ball. Through vote you can do without and who have Franz. Suarez who stopped running a very long time ago and WHO's not even fit anyway and Li'l missy. And that's it and I mean discussed you just just could not work from the beginning I dunno play Messi as a first number nine with a free road and fatty. Fatty on one side with the space who can running behind all night long and grier on the other side. You can also make those very clever run because he's a very intelligent player maybe that could better at least you have two guys neck who never defended the whole and as we saw on the sixth goal I mean the game was over but messy lost the pull and then you didn't even care didn't even look like it was. Going to chase it to get it back and and thought, I could work I mean I felt bad for Franchi young today because the poor kid Mr thought what's going on as this and I mean messy. You can see on his face from from the first minute that he was not going to enjoy the night tour I mean you could say it at both ends but obviously by with the eight to win as Barcelona's defendant just shambolic, Frank Yes. But that's something we couldn't anticipated and I and I and I did the night. I I was. A recording a little bit Craig about before the show about the fantastic. A game they had against. The, the give a lesson to to to my former team and we all know that work as a team I. Think there is a justice right now that. We saw in football. That statistics individuals doesn't make a team and a team makes results and a Swat. showed. Yesterday is what Liverpool should last year and he swabbed. By in Munich should today you work together it's hard. Is it was it was been hard for bustle and a to defend, and he's been decades like that. But because of some talents they were surviving. Even successful but ny doesn't work and he's not enough. If you don't have a good defense, you will struggle. It's the problem was remedied when Ramos doesn't play his prime we city flop is not there is a firm which you'll see because they don't have defenders and it was today with with bustle on because we all know that struggled defensively they need and I, think it will be the future of football. If you WANNA have a big team, you need good central defenders you need people who think about defending and it's going to be the future of the club. We want to be successful and today again bustling short us that they're not there anymore and. They will have to change many many things because craig buying actually getting caught. On with that highline. So at what point did the game just in when did they smell blood? Barcelona when the? When the saw whereas planned defensively offensively, what we're going to have a field day here in the middle of the park, we're just going to cut them open. Today I mean they got caught I mean just your call for for the bustling go where Laba. School the own goal which wasn't difficult one clear. The players been excellent Alaba. Absolutely. Fantastic. But it wasn't his finest moment. If, Benjamin poverty come back. With scored. But just the team she caja and yet we know we know bacelona haven't been playing. Well, we know. WHO said he was January I mean let's be honest is convinced no-one and when you leave an agreement Gills I mean frankly the but seems at the moment as the right place at the wrong time because we're not seems talent for clear. He's been showcase it because he's getting left exposed, and when you get left expose particularly a young guy and such a big atmosphere and an such a club where the eyes are on year every day then it's not going to be easy for him. The confidence is taken the. But you look at? The age bustle or not but you know tell Joe Biscuits he's three now it's not just the age. It's the amount of miles is go and the legs because these guys have been playing top level football since the tins and nearly twenty s and and that's the difficulty of for the for these boys is it's not just the age because they just kind of a number for people, Sim Games of plays and getting left exposed and as big rebuilding job and I think the worry would be as as looking at Lionel Messi and not be able to talk. For the next few days as desillusion does he how disgruntled busy with the coaching with his colleagues and with the club? PK said, afterwards, jails changes need to be made everywhere. Obviously we've got to look at the top when that's the case as well. So what happens next to start to put things right for Barcelona? Fortunately for nothing is going to happen for another year because the elections. Next Summit in Summit Twenty twenty one I think PK, and probably a lot of people would would rather have elections right now and. Who who's did the current president who cannot Be Be elected again, you know because he's had already two terms so be we'll have someone from each team. candidate and victims as we know, the other one who has the backing of Chevy and and I think the over of players as well in the dressing room they clearly don't want to move there I don't think they want every capital we've seen all season long the tension between the dressing room and board, which is never a good thing when your players and especially your key players and we've heard this more. Than ever before whether it was on social media whether he was interviews in the Spanish papers where he was on television but macy never usually speaks as much because the Fed I think so much in conflict with his own directors and president and people at the top of the club it was so unhappy with a lot of things have been happening this year and probably rightly so and but I was so toxic. Already already there you issues and already there things were going wrong and I think I understand what you said he said he was an absolute Shame shame for tonight a shame and I was not the first or second or even third time because we've seen these too often these season not as bad as a to but we've seen them being all over the place pretty much all season and I think he's right. But unfortunately, Bartolomeo would still be that another year who got knows who is going to come as a manager but I don't think you'll be because Chevy is waiting for victims phone to be. Hopefully elected in a year time. So even looks like on Shota is GonNa be still a mess for a few months to come just to stick with you. Then Gills know that you you're against sorry that you were all for an stovall verde going at the time. Do you think it would have been a different result not still being the manager of Barcelona tonight I don't think. So I think it was always depth anywhere. This season things are not working out. This this this was not busted and it was not the only one responsible There were already issued with the borders we've been saying There was some players who were playing way below the level that they should have been playing. But. Let's not forget that kitchen was not the number one, number two and the even number three choice to replace Valverde they had to go and get him when he was walking with his cows. In south of Spain because bickers. Who couldn't or didn't want to tell you the job Sam champion that was issue as well and I think he said she. Tries to come in a great activity and let's not forget the gradual I did before especially up it is. But This was not going to work because I. Don't think the dressing really ever accepted him anyway but frank, who is one who is going to want to come in and now overtake this Barcelona side right now with all the problems that they have from the top to the bottom. Not Me for sure. Leave me alone. I don't know what Schettino will be willing to come I. Don't know if somebody's reasonable is not going there. It's like. It was a case for Arsenal. Just, this season and updates us to step up step and good form it worked because they won the. Doing something really. Really I think is going to be a suicide to to go there. So I think they're going to pick up somebody for your coming from the reserve team at Noah somebody from Damasio dunno, what he can do but. I don't see a big top notch coach coming up and saying, okay, I'm going to change everything no because you cannot change anything you have to recruit. You have to change I think half of the team you have to change the mentality of dressing room you travel you need to have a big chat weezer Mr Missy to see how he sees foodball in the near future before next year seeing Chevy coming with the new chairman. So it's going to be complicated to to to have somebody and almost impossible for me if sets. Stock session that went completely obliterated tonight and A. Completely smashed smithereens because he thought. He did nothing money brought only it was it was like for like it was a straight chain to. Be Kept to. Go back to the point involve the I don't think many of us were huge falfield funds but affect the result with of. The. Humiliation might have been different I mean I. See Fossil whether game but. On today's such thing. Defeat me up an acceptable. Losing it goals for any club never mind one of the greatest clubs on the planet is certainly not acceptable. All been said. K Plan Munich were absolutely fun to us. I mean Hoover Defoe November think was when when Niko, Kovac side and Hansie flick commended Italian was a caretaker at coach who would have thought would seen this transformation I mean Thomas. Miller God. What's he having for breakfast because because I want some guys only in the game the guy has one of club and international level. But if you want to see for young kids the hunger and desire to go back there and do again, I'll give you Thomas. Miller. You could say that across the whole by team, the commitment that they displayed on the night but would they get away with playing the way they did against say, let's just say for argument's sake among city. Well the played up against mindset because that's the duty might be may start to drop depart from the highline boys mentioned which is. Which? Let's. Grab the OLA is no Keith who said? He's watched that onslaught, right? Okay. We saw on voting been dropped on his punts almost again. By Louis. Laura's similar. Thank to what may see that the a couple years ago than our. Areas of the team available notably I. AM. Sure. Guatemala will will look to do something. We saw in the game against Real Madrid how Jesus on the left bet sterling on the right and he played it failed. To medal and not gave the Real Madrid to a problem albeit. Ron. Moss wasn't there so They will not get away with doing the same things that against against Bio Munich? Said, we also know that Manchester City convenient boss alone. As captain kilometer. Of Two coaches. K. K.. I'm sorry I have to interfere because you're presuming that LEO is already out of the competition I said. seedy I said yes. Okay. Okay. We start to know the personality. But is it tailored to coaches? They both came in more or less mid season. So Jill, what is it? The Hansi flakes stone that's made they spy and so effective. It's interesting I think first and foremost reluctant said we. Must Murder He? He saw back you saw all That coverage was not really playing anymore because Moolah this place with with coverage which I think one made Muda really unhappy and I think love the dressing room unhappy as well because. He's one of the leaders in the dressing room in that team. So that's the first thing. They're certainly playing higher up on the page. With more energy I think and more drive than what they did on the coverage. There was also, of course, the Alfonso. Davis finding. When the injuries are sent to back, meant that Allah to switch from left back to centre back, which meant that the this idea idea to move on from his, who's originally a winger biker to left back and see and see if he could do it and boy you can, and you could and he did. So I think there's there's if there's a few things that came. From November onwards has been the best defensive midfielder in the world. Ski has been so lethal for them as well and I, think he's the confidence. Brought with him is someone really liked. Love Charisma. Who knows exactly what to say to get these dressing room going which I think Niko Kovac doing coach had a love discipline and him and I think some point that discipline didn't work anymore and I think those kind of places like Brexit have one everything everything possible that you could think of it gets to a point where discipline is not enough you need something yes or certainly depends too much. Disciplined and I think soon, realized very quickly and things when much better quickly. But then you've got young plays well frank like the nineteen year old Alfonso. Davies who had a brilliant performance tonight against Barcelona how far off is he from becoming the best attacking full back in the world? I don't know is already so high. For me the best. Wing back in the world back in the world. I mean he how to do maybe can improve defensively. Is Very strong but offensively, I mean dig- Guy Search a nightmare for the others and and and you have to cope with a guy who has a pace as an intelligence. He knows how to work tactically. So Young. I mean. Everything and that's the beauty and and and the city off by recruitment department where they exactly know where to pick the right guys and the guy comes from Vancouver for ten million bucks. I mean, that's nothing in our world and is already so important. I mean the the that he made today. In. The take on Semedo, it's a pure beauty and I really enjoy seeing dos player bringing something different and I can go back to Flink I think. Court doesn't teach a player out to play football players they normally no to play football, but he put them as. As. You said in the psychological aspect of the game in the best way and bringing a good tactic according to the players that you have and he swabbed. Twin that mix works that you have results and he's what fleet did bring to bustle on our where you barely have a tactic. You don't have squad you suck logically don't approach the players because they don't want you. So it's of course disaster as a result and why you have such a big difference today between by in Munich and bus Alana Craig who's going to beat this by inside. Well, I. Mean by on. Saturday would be a heck of a game. We we know they've got. The better of Leipzig over the course of a season. Although they. Be An absolute horrible lady. site. Yesterday. So it's difficult to see I mean Frank Leboeuf. is putting themselves on the back because about four months ago before the lockdown and the pandemic struck, he was lauding this Munich site and you know we all felt it was a little bit early after that crushing. Defeat of Stamford Bridge. But it was right and it's just gone from strength to translate to go back to the hand flex thing and I might be wrong. But I, think ahead somebody save when Hansie flicked when and what you have here is a bunch of senior players with a few youngsters. When you have kids you can you can rule with an iron fist when you have. Experienced guys they have. You've got a you've got to change your approach and I. Thank you. Spoke to the Millers and eleven, Dos Skis and all this Gordon Ziglar, what do we need what we need to? To change the training we need changes estimate changed that. Whilst. He has the final say because ultimately life his head will roll he brought by that responsibility to the players. Not Not treating them as eighteen year old kids not try real with the I. Am I am and. Respect. and. The respect as a coach which he did he start getting results and he's let it roll from there and I think if you look at mostly Tim Shaw elections, it's really changed but for but for suspensions and injuries an affect what you have for you as a classic case of actually managing rather. than. Coaching manager said to me you know if you're. Eighty percent great coach and twenty percent. Mon- monitor you'll fail. But if you're eighty percent manager and twenty percent good coach, you've got a great chance because you've got to. Manage a squad Niko Kovac wasn't doing that hundred flick is command and he's managed these big egos. Perfectly we know Craig though that there are threat from all areas as we can see with the way that they've shared the goals out even in the Champion's league obviously you've got as the top scorer there. But where do that weaknesses lie? Just back a sports and The only team. mindset the buck you know Real Madrid work again, the Black Bus Bustillo. The back to the Premier League after Chelsea all searching for San House used to be the thing was to get the best striker, their sports, steelers, but every one of these top clubs. This summer and beyond are going to be looking. At House and how how can I say that we're not gonNA smug sent a half sitting there in front birth not possession is no arguably the most important possession for these big European giants and by Munich the different the Gr- over, but they can't be particularly during the middle of that. Frankie had the right to reply to this. Yes thank you. I think I think the change because I think for me the weakest link. The by Munich is is Tang. So he's Pablo comes back and they can keep Kim on the right side and put Papa with Alibaba. can be the solution to be very, very strong the back. Well, it's really a minor problem, the because they work so much together and the midfield players worked so hard the defense it's it's it's it's a minor problem, but he's too big problem for any other clubs and that's Craig said and already say that you know that's the major concern of big big clubs in Europe. To. Find A. Center of sorry centers say yes, I'm sorry I'm not available in more. Jewish. Job That team that maybe could be competing with Real Madrid and Barcelona now for the names of the biggest players signings. Certainly have the money already spent lot on on Leroy Sanni already this summer and they've got Nicholas Zulu who's going to come by WHO has been out injured pretty much to whole season who's already already. He played a little bit. In these games liter being the second leg. and not he's not Beckenbauer I think he's he's better when he's fit fully and confidence I think he's better than the boughten so. They always strengthen they went and spent eighty million euros last Simone Lucas Annandale's the has many out this season because I think he he had a little injuries. Yeah. Some injuries also bit of time to adopt to a new culture and you knew league new language, etc new country club but Lucas Mondays could do a very good job there in the center back position too. So I think they were certainly feel that they might not need to go out and buy someone but he did it's please go and get value by McConnell because Obama. Should again last night without being sick forbid only against Costa. But that he was only the future us, the bike did someone just then. Frank. Frank. That was just me that was just. Yeah. McConnell has been absolutely fantastic for the past year I. Mean every time I saw him playing his A. Paper forget that we just got out to pandemic and maybe for club's getting off, he's not the absolute. Necessity especially for by in Munich where Juice Nem few players that could get along with Zellerbach. centre-half open McKenna just resigned contract in two thousand and twenty I. think he was GonNa do one more year and then go to a big big club because he's going to be a big big player i. tell you what he seal of approval K which is unusual from a defensive aspect from from our colleague Steven Echo this morning. We know as Stephen Defend Stevie was he doesn't. Say It's. Not again why he's not defensively and you`re Not. Sure. He seeks perfection got to the golf courses small I tsa go that leads you were horrible last night in that game and he said, did you see him pompey Connor Hawgood was he was brilliant Right You're happy. Then must be the real deal. It looks like KK sets yet has just been sacked. So if we can go back to the boss of managerial role, obviously, it's not so desirable right now for so many of the big name manages but one name that does keep coming up as Mauricio Pochettino who once said that he would never manage Barcelona because of his history with Espanyol, but could he have his mind changed? Kills yes. Sorry no, it's. Good you'll have. Maybe maybe let's enough again. We've explain it earlier on the show that you have elections. Next Nakamura with the ability that a new a new president coming in, and if he's Victoria phone, we know who victor formed want as a as a manager. We know already that Chavez agreed to come with him if he was elected and this, this will very much be Hav Victor Phones Campaign Victor Phone will campaign to be the new bus or not president. On. The back of I will bring Chubby. Back to the club as your head coach is your manager and he the socio vote for me and if you vote for me, Chubby would be your next manager. Don't think Pochettino would want to come for one year and in a year time besides when dictaphone derives bring Chevy with him, I think all of the has to be taken in consideration is not just would you want to come to our club is Pochettino and everybody else we'd have to look at. On short-term meets and belonging term as well because in the time it could be out of the door. So I, think this is a huge job to start with you have complete rebuild of your to do where I'm national homage monies available, and certainly your wage bill is already so big that there's not much room that unless you sell. Players there's not much. Room that in your wage to be able to sign big players and you need players right now. So I don't know who attractive these this team is position for. Patino Allegra. Every ten. Haga whoever they want to go for over not cooman can try again if they want to. Because such a mess and again, the tensions between the current board and the. is so big that I don't know I don't know how anyone could do as that job as manager the trouble is for Pochettino is A. He's GonNa get away from that. I'll never manage bus loan because of my. A. Team that she stops lately bonkers. But. For all the things Julian said, there could be tricky the trouble for. Portugal. Just to take a manager that was flavor of the month twelve months ago. Was he's on the sidelines looking at. Now we know. Remiss we know. Real. Madrid are unlikely. To change soon. We know maybe Thomas took was on the hot seat, but they made a late comeback. Against Alonzo and let's see what happens there. We know. Of, high appeal, which was a surprise, but not rules dot full short-term unless stop becomes an unmitigated disaster quick but we also know he was linked with united job healthcare. Now, source car as not going anywhere certain and for people that watched the show the no I'm not convinced Solska Long-term. So that could change but it's not gonNA, change for at least six months or more. So he really has at the moment still very much on the outside looking Ed Mauricio, Pochettino a nice really not a good place to be because he's already been well. I don't know I'm guessing no eight months something like that, and the longer you leave sometimes the more difficult it can be to get and getting a job won't a problem to to get an talk job and that's what he wants as a of an issue but frank with the financial problems at Barcelona have how do they even begin to rebuild? Well. That's to big question mark and and we know because we look at the big picture and I was listening to Craig. WHO's going to? Get, the job as a coach. You don't know what to do. You have the again the addiction the new year time everybody knows a Chevy, is going to come we the new elected. that. You have old dressing room so you have to get rid of some players but the. Big contract they don't want to move forward bustle on on the one to finish that carrier there. You are. Completely lost young players. You don't know what to do and you know which is going to be the coach of Bustle Knicks Nick season for your time I. Think it's a big big mess, but it's a result of big bad management for years now and you will have to start. I don't know. You have to find a coach does demean pro make concern, but don't try to expect too big top coach because nobody is going to be free and nobody's wants to come in the place, which is kind of. Committing suicide to go to go there for for your reputation. So yeah tried to get rid of some older player I duNNo. I won't name nobody because I don't want all the social network to jump on me, but I will say get rid of some old players. Try to build some other confidence talk with missy what he wants to do in the dressing room he's easy still going to be the king decides everything. I don't know there's so many. Question that you have to answer to. But the the first one is to finally find a coach does trouble as you say, Liz, and you've spent money for fun. You. Just throwing money out there in these players good players, but they're on the bench you know. BIG MONEY DM belly. Money. Continue on lawn by Munich comes on and scores a couple beg money, and then you look at last night at Letsie. Thomas Lamar. Joke Felix well, the best of two, hundred million. Kind of everyone don't care couple hundred million on the bench. On the bench I, mean a staggering to see clubs spending on really good players, and for some reason, some of these coaches cut them into the site I mean if I was a board member. I was the money monitor these clubs you'll be saying. What the Hell is going on here we've just spent an absolute fortune on all those players mentioned a little more than a certain Benge I mean I it's quite staggering. What's going on at the moment that some of these big clubs and big players with all that money spent. Then Joel's what do you think of those? Who have said that the board of wasted the best years of MACY'S KOREA Well I mean. If, we start on the subject I I think we would go on or nights He lost one that trump is digging twenty, fifteen, five years ago already how come you only want three champions. League. When he's the best player has ever played the game either no, I do think that. I don't think I don't know if they wasted. He's base years, but they're certainly relied for. Him I think certainly was the one they're. Wa. He doesn't need top players next to him because he's the best and I don't know if they played the part. I don't think you can as posing direct. Think about your job like this but clearly clearly looks like what they've done. I mean how can the triptych passer signed giving Prince Sang Martyn Brightwood Malcolm plays like that should should not have ever even been mentioned in the company in the office issued be SA- blaspheme to to name those names for boss loan signing them and giving them money and paying them just even thinking about Martin Braithwaite and Malcolm and the NFL many others who have never even been signed by that club and yet they made all the mistakes and we don't even talking about the big adidas cost more money. In wages, transfer fees, I never worked out. Nuts how desperate? and. Pell foot. Amin. Pilfered Martin Braithwaite. Legacies Yep. Thank. You know fighting for fighting for the latest bottom of the. Spanish. Talked here and they go in. And nothing against US lot. But but you know boss loaner clogged the only signs used to the best of the best. But that's how desperate they were this season. This as you make an awful, you know I don't know what the boy's thing but. I think he's team I honestly and I'm not just saying. I think. The time has come for Massey to say you know what? Marvelous Club Grit success. Fantastic. Stadium a showcase, some of the best goals and performances of L. Putting the world here for over a decade but you know what? My Age? No. I WanNa, go and try something with a different team with a fresh approach with not May. Rejuvenate and revitalize the last. Embers of his career the next three years if you get through t like. Five thirty six entities just to go and see something new whatever that may be on because. I think the frustration is kicking for him and he boss alone nothing by the way he's given not cloak. Over, the period he's been there has been nothing short of extraordinary and I think he puts his I don't always contract situation is but I think every puts his foot down fermanagh. He'll get what he wants and I wouldn't be surprised if we wanted a fresh challenge. Honestly. Okay. We've almost got to that but just very quickly because I want to hear from Gills and Franken, this messy to stay or go I will I will I will say go are we say go for him for his experienced have no regrets in his life To just see what's going on. In other places in other locations and see how you know just as last challenge, how we can cope with all new teammates new cried no new stadium I mean that would be interesting for the world of football and and for some people to not say, yeah. Okay play Boscell you never challenged himself going to another club and we'd be nice just to see him with another shirt. No because we want to be done we don't WanNa. See Anymore in Botswana because we want to see macy. Who He was, but we was going on in Barcelona is quite impossible kills. I. Think he's too loyal and I think he will stay which maybe has been. Maybe has been issue within I think he maybe it'd been a time to loyal to the club describes his life as well so I can understand well, that's all we've got time I could probably go on all night but make sure to join us a little later because Craig Frank Checker will be with US answering your questions on extra time. There's still one more quarter final to be played where the last semifinalist will be decided, and that's man city against. Leon. The winner of that game will face by in on Wednesday the nineteenth of August the day before that, we'll see light sick against Paris and then the final coming on Sunday the twenty third of August. So let's take a look at. that. Muncie Leeann game guys if we can then Franco start with you just to give Leon some love just to let you know that I'm not against the French side going through should muncie be fearful of them and if so why? Well, there's certainly need to respect them remember the last year loan them the stadium in the group stages and think drew at. Stadium. So everything is supposed to we saw three fantastic games of the quarterfinal. We always speak to see a great game as well for the for the for the last game of those quarterfinals and I want to give a little bit of changes to your. They put Juventus out. So I think the full of confidence and the bill and they believed that since last year mentioned. biddable, and so they will. They will go on for that of course. Jesse's a team. But they have some weaknesses of the box so. I give a twenty percent of your to surprise everybody twenty percents. So even said a lot your prediction is that t going through? A have to I mean I will be would be crazy to put your. As as the favourite and say, they're going to win as say that we can have a surprise. A show for tonight the result was by bus by will go through but not a fantastic team and they really desperate get the Champions League. So yeah, we'll go for a two, one, four, three, one, four inches to CD kills will you give some love to countrymen? Yeah. There certainly believed that they can do it again I think no one expected them to be you've in we can. Very good you've aside but still did the job of a two legs play with love heart and character, and they're very disciplined and trade with a buck five and they quite solid. They've got creativity in midfield. They've got a key factor in Memphis dhipaya front who can have moment of magic and do something special. So they're certainly believe that they can do something. Great that they've got no pressure or the pressure is on Guada- allowed pressure is on one city that the company underdogs and they will go that with absolutely no pressure on no tension no FIA nothing you toda and again, I think what I know they've they've rewards the two games from last season in the group stages and it was different because the different manager. Like Faquir and umbrella Andy who've left the club since then but I, think the idea is to try to reproduce what they did in those two games. Last Season Champions League. Tomorrow night and see what happens then. Craig. What's your prediction for this guy? Well as Manchester say don't shoot themselves in the foot defensively. Think they'll go through. But Jones is right Leon, side of very organized. Done the homework unlike Rail Madrid. When set the Boston possession new will look for the ball over the top. That's what's that's what's hot city this year we talked about this Barcelona, game? Against Unit by unit lifted space and behind Seti do the same nothing what people fail to realize as teams late Norwich over relegated can beat my mind society. Now, teams born who were relegated can give set the problems dead. Air Theod then much better Leon side can give them problems and I don't for one minute well, but I just feel as long as city fake euro, the line and don't make a mess of the defensive structure. affected. Too much but they'll not be sleeping easy thanking Leon are just GonNa roll over not at all the last of the semi-finalists to we decided when months take on Leon. Tomorrow, night. Yesterday Tyler Adams scored a spectacular goal for light seek to send his side into the semi. Many are saying it could be the most important goal and American player Scott in club football Alexis Nunez cost with the moment to him all about what was a fantastic night. All right. Thanks for speaking with us. I just wanted to know because when I think of being twenty one, I was probably just proud that I could buy my first grownup drink and here you are. You're team you know into the seventy miles of the Champions League. How do you put last night to where it's? How did it feel now that the dust has settled a little bit. He. So for me, I would say, obviously a little bit unexpected to score a goal. But. Most bluntly just pure excitement. Pure Joy. A moment that you know in a sense, you wish that you could celebrate with your family in person and at the competition of course, but you know able to pick up the phone and call them and see the excitement on their faces you know talking to them they don't even have their. They can't even speak because of the they lost their voices screaming at the television. It's an exciting moment for me. What was your reaction like as well from not just founded by your friends I'm probably some the players because I knew I soon as he scored twitter what mental add we saw each from someone that works with US Hurricanes Gomez I know you've got to chat with them the Andrea yet lane just combined the words he just have to say her name so you don't have any of them reach out to you just said Bra that was. All of them have reached out to me and you know I. Thank them so much for the continuous support throughout all. A lot of these people obviously played a role in in my development, not just as a player, but as a person. So. I think that you know seeing them all reach out and the excitement for them is is a special moment because that just goes to show that you know how close we are as as a community, the soccer community but also. You know how the impact that scoring a goal like that affects. Everyone makes everyone. Happy. So it's a huge moment. And I said usual usually just thinking of the goal itself again. I you have those that will say, well, it's a curly flex. You. And you. As you absolutely should and people are already trying to ranting you know in terms of US goalscorers how meaningful if it's the most meaningful goal of all time so far for American players how do you see to even just your career? Yeah Yeah of course, it's a it's a huge moment but most importantly I'm excited that it puts our team into the semifinal now and it gives us a real chance to to raise a trophy because at the end of the day, that's all it's all my mind. You know you could be the first player to do this the first player to do that. But at the end of the day, you want to be the first Americans to raise a a Champions League trophy. So we put ourselves in a closer position to do that. Now, two games away We have a big competition next obviously against PSG but. It's pure excitement for that. We're up for the challenge. Said you definitely want to live in the moment. Let's see. Cause massive achievement to get. To the next round, but next you do have psg as you just mentioned the likes of Neymar, Imbaba etc.. How do you plan to tackle that match or have you not really thought of that just yet? Yeah. We haven't thought about it quite yet. Of course, you can say those names right and you just think of the individual talent that they have and. What they've done in achieved already, both of them, such a young at such a young age winning World Cup winning the Olympics such big achievements. How you stop that I, don't think there's a written game plan to how you can stop it Neymar or pay but I think that were confident in our our defensive abilities confident in our team's ability So we know that we have to go out there and continue to fight for each other because that's what us so good and you know this fearless mentality that our team has such a young team. We go into these games just thinking we can win everything. So like I said confidence is key in these types of moments but going out there and obviously being able to execute huge as well. And if. You're. Still, such a young team you of course, young. American to and. Everything is just you know nothing to lose everything to gain at this point that you've gotten to this level. So what would getting into the champions? League final jus-just mean for you. Yeah, I mean I I don't think you can even put words to that. Right I mean the emotions would obviously be gushing but. Yeah for me. It would be such an amazing achievement. I think that most importantly with our mentality that we all have is you know reaching the champions. League. Finals grape I mean if if you've made it all that way, you don't WanNa go home empty-handed You want obviously able to raise some silverware and yeah I if that happens then you know obviously we would all be in all. Definitely and I think that one of the things. That a lot of people have been talking about this now, this almost many champions, e kind of tournament. Let's just all knockouts. Kinda, makes the whole, even even more exciting kind of levels the playing field a little bit I mean we saw how close Atalanta were with PSG, and then you know now what we've seen with you guys do over Antarctica monitoring we know have a wealth of experience in this Champions League so have you found that? Level the playing field a bit. One hundred percent when you take away the aggregate and obviously having to go through in a way venue with just away fans and then. Going back home and know sometimes relying on you know that home tied to. Bang out a result, there's definitely levels the playing field and you know when we saw the structure of the tournament and how is going to be set up we knew that this gave us an amazing opportunity to to go on and. Three Games in your through. So if you played three three good games year, most likely going to walk away with the win in the tournament. On the other hand, we do know that there's so many good teams left in the competition. So for us, it's about you know grinding out those results, but also keeping a level head on her shoulders and being able to you know. A clever way being able to manage the Games because against teams like PSG. It's not going to be easy for ninety minutes. Also, coming off a short holiday, not everyone's at four fitness. So we know that there will be rotations at times and everyone needs to be ready for the opportunity. And I think we at yesterday it was a pretty interesting stats in the sense that Diego semi only had been in charge of more games that country than likes you have just played ever and The crazy stat like he speaks to the to the youth of like the fact that it's such a young but he's such a short amount of time you guys have become an absolute force. So what do you put that down to? Yeah, I think that the philosophy that the club has had over the past years is bringing in young talent and obviously developing them to the best possible way. You know we have a structure where in the in the training ground. We have so many young guys whether it's in the academy or being bought at such a young age before they're kind of spotlighted by these, you know top top clubs So players like Diet McConnell, who you know is obviously brought from Salzburg This is a player that has kind of been in the system for such a long time and understands exactly his role on the team. You know you see from performances like last night this is no surprise. To us of what he's capable of, and you know some people are talking about, you know how he's going to be one of the best young center backs in the world you know the first day I played with him. I I knew right away he was going to be one of the best young center backs in the world. So they have great I for talent and bringing in players that are going to fit the philosophy of what they want to do. and. Thinking of youngsters you don't even have to look that far in terms of you get right there with you. Leonardo's manipulate agencies younger than James Mill who is You know people find that so hard to believe. But for you, what's what's I suppose the best thing about working with such young manager because obviously definitely knows what he's doing. Yeah. His ideas are brilliant. I mean you saw yesterday in the game of of how we manage that game and the the different formations that we switched in and out of throughout that game too. 'cause Athletico problems he's he's one that pushes the envelope he's not afraid to take risks. And he's a coach that gives us the confidence to play, brave and make mistakes, and you know these types of things are okay and as a young player when you're told yeah, it's okay. If you make mistakes, you go into two games with full confidence, right? So I think that for a young team. We have this fearless mentality and obviously with the coach that makes a lot a lot easier. and. Then when you did score last night I was actually just talking to produce before this. I said Oh my goodness I. think the US probably is shook at. Where we have to like mobilize to try and get you real quick to chat to you because it seems like it's such an exciting time for. Americans in football or soccer however, you definitely want to call it with. Alexa. View you know Weston mckennie as well. We spoke at length about Christian Pulisic G. The racks to on would you say that this is probably the best crop of US players are the most exciting time for Americans to be looking at in the scores Yeah One, hundred percent and you know I've said before you know so much of this is individual talent right now right. So now it's a matter of when we're able to you know put that National Team Jersey on all represent our country at the. Same time that you know we build that chemistry and continue to grow because You know when a World Cup rolls around, we know that a lot of us are going to be going to need to perform and most importantly qualifying for World Cup. So we have a lot to prove still, but we all have the right mentality and we're just gonNA take it day by day game by game continue to prove ourselves. And Final Question I spoke to Robert Donosti literally like about a week ago and he said that Biron and this dusty saying he said that he felt that this season was a lot more competitive than other seasons. He thought you know you guys coming up to the heels iron and you gave him a good run for their money for sure. So do you feel like the Bundesliga is getting a bit more competitive than it's not going to be the say Byron Dortmund that you know make it a two-horse race for the title. I mean I think that you saw last season, right? With Gladbach. Labor in there was such a push towards the end of the season for those top four spots and even in early on in the season of course, we finished in first place throughout the first six months of the season and then yeah, with a little bit of off. Corona of course, that changes the circumstances but Yeah it's getting closer and closer Byron and Dortmund obviously two world class teams with world class players. But we find ourselves with a young team and that fearless mentality being able to push the envelope and continue to challenge race now. All right tallow in gotten a super excited for the semifinals. Match but I'm pretty sure you can handle all the best. Thank you so much.

Murphy. Final Sima I spotted West Ham's have been two, thousand two we went to. Blackburn away, and then Everton a we So we decided to stay in northeast between between two games to replay Blackburn considered five. To. Seven what a weekend It to celebrate the Newcastle Nightlife Right I should have done that as an expert Shaw. Chef was from Frank mcmanamon say shocker how demoralizing is it to concede more than five goals in a much goalkeeper? Does this have an effect on you in future? Absolutely does and Might defensively stories that are just tools. That season. I was stolen in a new and sitting Tim's I was super requirements at breast down by Glenn Roeder who come in for David James I checked emotionally. When you look at this takes position to. Give all that we've discussed didn't how highly aspreys tests again, over the last few years I said that I thought he should have been in Germany I had amount of Neuer, I each World Cup I know two of them head to head and that's the result. I it's it's damaging in ways than than just fright. High One professional is You let twelve goals in two games and you couldn't forget stuff because you told you getting. Public and where was. Union. When he was just talking about tests taken that taught the next one I think is aimed at me. It's sludge Tony who says, is it true? Mostly Suarez are on their way to Middlesbrough Cranky. Look. For. New Club Stopped. Talking about just the place for them the love. Very, Cosmopolitan. And Love Teesside will prank. Could you happening? Of course, just fall you dream and I will call you the supertramp dreamer. Did just. That I have to say A. Lot about the lights of Middlesbrough and it's night, light could use. No. I and I haven't been rally confessed right now I have never been to throw on jeans in my life not once dominating boring. Just a boring guy. I studied a lot bronco. To believe. Frank studied. The next one has to be for you. It's rough. You suffer who says, yeah. When should it team? Stop playing out from the back? When shoot team bring From the back. I think after the second longshots. Adventure when I see. Getting so stubborn after making so many bad season putting his teammates endanger. I mean, you should play a little bit further up you know start to play football at tower time. He's true. We didn't bother and getting the ball from the goalkeeper and trying to play nicely from the back we won't be too late to win. do know some some some of the field and going further and the second one was very important. Then you start to to play because you had no worrying whatsoever about being attacked and I mean that's crazy at some point and we saw that today for saw but still not that's stupid. You cannot play from you sixteen year old books in and try to take on some players make passes with. To, a friend of us with two guys behind him I mean that's that's stupid. Craig Dan says he's GonNa to start showing that Premier League clubs that play go to early from anonymous arsenal and West Brom to one of the best wings in the world at thion. Yeah I. I don't know if it's a case alleged let go earlier or whether whether. There was A. Problem with I don't know are others. Illustrated's the coin which you think some people just don't realize is that every player materials mentally and physically a different pace? Some. Guy's already going to team. Sixteen seventeen and are not I. Mean I remember. K. When. I went to sixteen years old, my goodness can't even imagine. Sixteen seventeen getting anywhere near the FOS team you're. Just. Not. Ready, never mind mentally and so. Everyone develops a different different type. Nothing. That might not be the reason for arguably you might say that about about clearing questionnaire because we never saw any of when he was in England will not. Is Optional Magnificent. Over the last couple of years, there's no doubt. Next up, we have got this one. It says did messy and Simione. You make their final appearances for their respective Squads Shekhawat. What does this say about the direction of Lalita which has been at the very top for quite some time now and I just like to add that this will be the first time that no Spanish team will be in the Champions League semi for the first time since the oath six seventy continue you wonder if there will be a change in the God's Going to be. A. God for Boston on the sidelines. All I don't think there's any question about that I still don't feel at the Muny is on his way out that Madrid given given that successes and given what give them the club and air resources and and who they can do to compete again I just don't see who goes in and makes the Madrid better than the eagles immunity. All that being said, I don't despite the success of a few years ago I don't see them replicating. And if your boss loan I don't think messy and I don't think. Necessarily wants to leave, but he wants to compete, and if they can somehow convince him not the spending money and got details in to to make them competitive and kind of put these hidings be behind them. I I, you convince him to stay I, don't think. Either of in question in tweets are leaving their respective club. I just think k with the with what another success on the semi not taking away from at all. But, I think with what they have in terms of squad. It could be a lot better. You know they have some talented players we talked about on the show. Today they spend money. Thomas the Modern Joe Felix Dynamic you on the bench. Play or star not semifinal. So I, think it could be getting more of an and some sense. Maybe he did try to change it in terms of the personnel, the four changed twelve months or so ago and some of the old guard laugh, but the tactics changed. Maybe that just getting a little bit all not in terms of old and not get results where all Thames asking the. Same thing over and over again. That actually capable of a lot more go by the Spanish thing and I always say this cyclical. And people love to get next twist about what's the best league not leaks past not unless leagues. When somebody gets a result O-, leaks absolute nonsense. It was only a few years ago. F. That the Premier League teams were struggling in your. The fact it was quite embarrassed, but I said time cyclical and it's the same speed. They'll go through this period. Out The equation. Teams will be back off near the top of not at the top again and anguish teams ever done. Tell me again tell teams. It happens it's not a both what's the best leak and what's the water nest? Mess these are all Great Lakes is they're all great teams, but it Sakho, he can't keep trump kanye results Barcelona Alana and Real Madrid Channel Three. Fleet champions, leagues in a role something like that can keep that going and so I think people and I hate to. I hate this what's the based leaks or scenario? Because I think in general all these leagues have very good next question then guys frankly Muslims, as would you have celebrated after scoring if you continue frank how to say I remember that devil? Just signing after two person scoring the last goal against a Chelsea them from region celebrating and nobody was offended because it's a normal reaction from player now you have to take. That vessel London to to buy me because he thought he wasn't good enough. So I think he has a right to do whatever he wants to whatever he feels and can accept everything because I mean I ever club who doesn't want him because he's not good enough supposedly and have a guy who scored two goals again them and just happy to play football. So he has the right to do whatever he wants. Celebrates then. You had to run the. Fox led. To? Listen we know a thing an England allowed to play against Your Parent Club, but you have and some leagues year off. And you follow this rule, which is to sell it really because you know you're playing against you may if you've got some of us have some of us have been. Out. On The bottom line as Frank said. Fossil up and go. To Ghost. But it might not. You know it could have been a factor it comes on against his parent club. And course the winner I? Mean how Chris and? The question is. Whether you play against your parent. Club. But a word of celebrated case for sure we check. Absolutely. If I were in you syllabi celebrate and right now. If possible didn't want continue to score against them. Then don't want him up on your book. But by you make the decision to send a molten loon, you meet each other in. Champions. League. and. This and that that's tough on you boss enough. But as a player, that's why you're there you're only. To give your best regardless. The do everything that's asked of you continue. Did that celebrates I he when the opposite HAP- shackle how come you never did you I told you forgetting getting released from West Palm? I did. Great he said he'd still be celebrated now where's The library? Out Pinocchio doesn't go out. that. My Story. Sticking to great guys that's all we've got time for on extra time.

UCL Spots Up for Grabs

"Welcome into this Friday dish of ESPN FC shop. His Stevie Nichols, Sebastian Salazar here in studio with you Paolo Bandini will be joining us throughout the show as well. Plenty to cover we've got finals from around Europe. Let's start in Italy Syria where the season come to an end on Sunday. The biggest question left to answers who will be joining you Venice and Napoli in next year's Champions League Atlanta, and Inter Milan right now in the driver's seat AC Milan, though with a chance in Roma with a mathematical chance to get through. Now let's start with into their facing amply team. They have twenty eight more points than over the entire season. But if you look at their last three matches amply actually playing much better than inter in the run-up to this match so Paulo I'm going to start with you here. There was a time when we had Inter Milan, penciled, and maybe even sharpened into our top force, what has happened in. Is there any sense that they could actually blow this on Sunday against empty? There's a very real sense of blow this against. On sunday. And the found point of you could say that's just crossing into pots in crazy into the nickname, they're always capable and these situations. But even if you just want to look at this season, you can see they've already blown pressure situations before they had just had to beat PSV and the loss group and then game of the group ages, and they didn't they just had to beat Frankfurt ahome off to join with them in the and they didn't. And now they're another situation where it's dual Diane, I think, lots of fans expect them to fluff their lines in this one, they haven't played well as you say employee of one that lost three games, whereas in one free of the loss of nine. The situation. But China spell, it who has been acting pretty recipe through the last part of this season manager and to face me knows his job is gone on Tonia contest being openly called to this is what's his motivation like going into this game, and then the mess, you have up front with moderate copy is basically never really come back into full more into a sense of being central side ever since he was trip to the captaincy. Is he going to be him starts? He's gonna be out about the either of them gonna play up to that potential. Because frankly Martinez hasn't been in great form in the second this season either, so so much wrong with this team at the moment. No question if you go through the eleven's Plath apply that more talented than employee by fun. No one's asking if Jeanine gones better player than Akwa. But, but this, you know, real real sense that into this game up -solutely interesting, you mention on Tonio Kante because at the sport on the cover wanting that content to injure could be all, but a done deal and who would. You like to bring with him. Well, none other than lamelo Lukaku those are some pretty big moves for the fact that we don't have Champions League football guaranteed for this. Intercede paulo. I mean, all of this dependent on inter finishing top or the moves with Lukaku novice even concept before that. Mkaku certainly is is unrealistic, if it don't get the champ is, whether it's really even with the Champions League. I'm not certain, but it's definitely I'm going to get that fifty to sixty million euro guarantee that you get just for qualifying for that competition. Kansai officially the line from interior is well, this official line from sorry, I misspoke, that, of course, is not confirmed deal publicly, there's no official from the club. But what you hear out of this deal is, is done one way or the other, it doesn't matter if the champions eagle. Personally, it's one of those situations where I'll wait and see if it happens, if they don't qualify because context been pretty public in the things he said recently about this. Look on the manager has won the league three times. Vents wanted Chelsea to go to a club now that has a project ready to go and win. And I'm basis and compete. So if he was really presented without Europa league situations. They're not Sunshine's. He would wave. I didn't know that's that's me speculating rather than, than having a line on it. But yes, suddenly a little confidence at interrogated say the deal will be done whatever happens St. let's focus on the Manchester United side of this. How desperate you think they are to get rid of? I think the will be more than happy to get rid of the Kaku. Listen, the guy sat on the bench hasn't produced on the field, along with many other pleasant eighteen. So, yeah, I would I would suggest that a good offer. I think you built the doors soon as they possibly can agreed if they can get anywhere closer to the money paid for him was somewhere between sixty five and sent him seventy million, I think ticket, and as far as new Cocker's concern things opportunity that he would also jump out this concerns financial concerns on into set of the quesion, but let's be honest Lukaku feeling that is going to stood at much as United. There's new Champions League for both for them either. He getting over. But play in the team and the system that I think better suits him quite clearly, he's he's behind pecking. Order Manchester United no. All the boxes are sitting Lukaku is concerned, I back to Syria on, really the other side of Milan. AC Milan with chance to maybe jump into this top four Paolo. They've got Spall on the weekend. When we look at this AC Milan team. I'm really just kind of curious. At what point do we think they can get the job done against Paul look may not have won the last couple of games. They've put themselves in a position where they're at least nipping at the heels about the inter- waiting for an opportunity, and if they played in the last couple of games against this team that have anything to play for goings this final round, every possibility that said we talked about this on the serial podcast, just this week, a lot of these teams in the middle of the table, who you might take the ground, and I think traditionally, Italian football, reputation you can take these teams gronk when they haven't things paper season. I've been very competitive followed by grateful this swallow just last week and took points off all mind. Effectively eliminated them from the Champions League race. So I don't think line can take anything for granted, but they certainly they certainly have an opportunity, and they probably have the easiest fixture of the three teams going into this final weekend. Got something playful. Follow me on outside the top four to start the weekend. Let's go worse case scenario. They can't get the job done against ball. They don't make champions. What would the ramifications for the club, they'd be significant for show, the club is under investigation for by for financial fair play. In fact, a couple of investigations that sort of still being worked through the first one, of course, meal were banned for year from your pink competition, but they appealed it successfully appealed it. But it's still the legal without on the appeals process processes still being worked through. And now there's a fresh investigation into the latest three batch of accounts, which is still to yield results ongoing. But the ramifications of very real for them as a club the management group was he took over the club from a situation where these things hadn't been handled very well. He's trying to put the club back on a better track. What's long-term intention is still be still define now. They may well be looking for to Sal and find the new by themselves. But either way, the club needs to clear. The mass was created before they came in, and I think they almost two grated agree then than, for instance, I've a real need to get this money in and start that process of making things healthy again. So it's huge for them, and it's huge all of these clubs in terms of who you can buy in the summer, but I think just me Lon have that, that post, I guess, clouds Eclair at the moment and without Champions League football. It's a law. It's doing this suddenly going to have to be some, some big sales, I think all of the other part of this chase for the Champions League is Atlanta. I was listening to the serious podcasts. I guess last week. And you guys were saying that maybe finally the pressure is getting to this free flowing side. True. Yeah. Well I mean this is a really tricky spot for them on the final weekend. You know, they should be playing at home. Right. It's the end of the season, one game, let's go against swallow midtable, and they should be thinking, right? Let's do this in front of fans and get a big emotional push over the line because they've just a Cup by Talia final, which they lost a lot year. They've had draw with eventual to zoom thing draining games. And now instead of going home, they're actually going to swallow home stadium. Because staying that for the lawsuit games a season, while their home ground is being renovated. It's almost in a way game when it should be a home game. It's a it's a really sort of texting spa. I think especially when you see the spoil just drew with my last weekend, affectively eliminating them from the champions aches team. It's very much still kicking on and trying to win games. Even though it hasn't got a stencil Blake something big to play for. So there's a lot of pressure on this game. Frantz alliance would mean more for them as a club than than any of the others used to being the Champions League. It's no thing which I thought onto done. Before it's a huge opportunity for them to be an amount of money to be transformative and also just to experience, validation this incredible season. I think you know the Cup go away from them, but finishing fourth but almost be more remarkable almost be something less probable for teams of this doctor of their wage Bill of their opportunities to achieve. So I think there is a lot of pressure on them. I think you can look at Sutton games like the employee match at home. When they had forty shots and failed to score what perhaps they were snatching things, and feeding that pressure. So it's, it's real the pressure, the good enough to get over the line. But I think it's definitely a ten situation for them going into the final weekend. Okay. Palo prediction time. Who's joining you've Entous Napoli next year in the champion's league. I this is just a gut feeling. But I still think it somehow ended up being on the end of this week. And I don't think that would be something that would feel right to me. I feel like that wasn't the. Come that was deserved. I think Lonzo deserve to be there. But there's just that, that yeah, that question my mind, whether or not they'll be able to handle the nerves on this final weekend, terrible and polity hates, and romance and everything. Whereas remind guess, at the Dallas sport tongue about one of the many potential candidates to replace max Allegra, you've mount Eacho Saudi, but really the rumor that is caught the internet on fire. Is this rumor that pet the Ola has in some cases, somehow Paolo already agreed to a four year deal? Now, what you'll has come out and said, no, he's not going to vent this. So the question is, then how is this still a story? Beats me. I have no reason to, to believe that this story has any legs. It's all perhaps there are people out there who have some information that I don't have that makes them really believe that it's real. Oh, perhaps we're getting into silly season little bit early. And people are enjoying running to this story because it sells papers and gets click on websites, and perhaps, even does some positive things, fever, the share price. I believe over the last few days as well. So if you want to be really conspiratorial as a thought for you, but I don't think the quality is going to manager next season. I think he's very definitely gonna be the manager city Pala who's your favorite then to get the job. You know, we took my this on the off the other day. I, I really, really struggle to see a cliff Everett. I think that it's a concern for me that you've made this Paul ways the great manage it without having a cliff favorite in minds. I think at the moment it's probably one of CNN's Saudi the ones, I think most likely, but I'm saying that and thinking, well how much if I was to put a percentage on it. What would I put on it? Maybe twenty percent on either of them. It's not like I see one cliff front runner who's way out in front of the pack in Zygi? I know the Perotti isn't admire. I know that they have a relationship, but my big question with him is just a you really gonna bring guys never coach and the Champions League for perhaps one or two win the left with Cristiano Renaldo. I'm not it's your Saudi well max Allegra said it over and over about him him, not being a winner and event. This is the club. That is all about winning. That's the jump on the line. The winning is not important thing. It's the only thing and. I, I just don't know. I just don't know. But I think Saudi has suddenly the, the capacity. I think I personally, he's a great manager. I think capacity you really interesting with the club, but I don't I don't see a stand out here and I'm yeah. I think it's going to be a fascinating few days, and perhaps week, seeing which direction they do in plenty more Italian football on the city. Awesome podcast Paulo joined by Marcatti, and zucchini and download the latest episode on ESPN dot com or on I two. Chuck, his lob, Steve Nicol Sebastian sell us here in the ESPN studios, looking ahead to Monday's promotion, final between Aston Villa new Darby county Palo Bandini with us, as well Paolo, I'll start with you. Who do you see having the edge in this game? Well, I mean it's hard not to look at the two games. They already played in the league this season villa one four three nil. So it's a pretty substantial victory both times. But then doubly had lost three times to Leeds before they overtime. Not second-leg deficit in the semi final. So Dhabi of reasons to believe in themselves. Feel confident with a better team through the season. They were here lost year as well. And I think in Jagr, which they probably have the one real standout individual in this in this game. So the favorites with good reason, but I don't think it's a done dusted thing. It's all Steve is the fact that villa hammered Darby twice matter that much in a situation like this. I think I think, psychologically, the affect I'll be more than thinking thing of us in villa. I find it really tough to go against villa against for me. Darby is fantastic one as the hod against Leeds. They would in the situation where they have nothing to lose. You know, they lost one nil at home, and then they would a goal donor early Dole's. So the really throw off the shock goes and go for that, and what for them I don't think they can do that against us Vela from the start and I don't think you can rely on a comeback twice in a row. And that's why I'm going to go for us Vela us consumers as maybe that all three of us being unanimous means. Never going to be wrong after join the boys here. I just feel this villas give to lose because the two league games Paolo mentioned. I just wonder how much Dhabi would be emotionally spent after after their win against these and listen villa winter two pounds in west Brom's. Well, I just as a club, villa better prepared to cope with emotions, especially given their, their experiences of, of two months ago. And also for Dhabi, just one of that leads victory was was almost a little bit too big. And then you also have to deal with oats Maluku who suspended. I'm Leinen villa. This when I get Aston Villa Darby county, the richest game in all of coverage starts at ten AM Monday on ESPN plus.

We, we get some really off the wall questions in extra-time figure, you know, shock us has some NAS, NASA experience reptiles science, nothing. That's all the time for us. Meshach STV, the reptiles. We'll see next time. Gentleman. What do you know we've made it to extra time not just extra time but Friday? Subdued. I was a bit subdued community here. Kid starting against how do I do through to pay their body? Could go time. All right. Let's Sebastian you almost nothing this third, can't believe television, professional. We got shock Stevie myself here in studio. Palo's with as well. Tons of questions for the group. Let's start here, apparently the trash talkers those series championship. Final civil you do serious. Weller seven zero no. I don't have my bobbly isn't quite where, you know. All right. So apparently mighty ship, watch at said, Liverpool or the favorites in the Champions League final because they've quote, spent a lot harsh red wants. No. Why would say Liverpool has spent a lot and they have sold in bought wisely? The latter of which is the reality Stevie. Woody base one hundred percent. Correct way says look at the moment much issue. He was spending a little money, go nowhere. So, yeah. What he was saying the Huseyin Liverpool of favorites. That's only said nobody mentioned Manchester. United. Should they did again, live for the one, because about team to yes? Spent the spent money we have. They were too easily right? Show. Spend it wisely. Next question VJ wants to know which game are you almost looking forward to watching in Syria this weekend? Start with you guys in studio, I get palace. Take shackle. What are you Atalanta, correct? Because I'm a romantic, and I think they're going to finish. Fourth, thank you, as much as Paolo is trying to kill the romance game. I'm not buying. What do you think getting two percent? To swallow home game played it's up stadium. Genius genius to say. Stop doing renovation. Walk genius doesn't think Atlanta's going to be a Champions League chase. Never know whether workman of free. And you guys. That's one of the game to watch. I mean look, I under Jimmy the team to watch every weekend, the great fun. They play the most entertaining football. There's a part of me that thinks that the most fascinating game to watch is, is interim just because if any team can do something really stupid on the final weekend. Everybody are also fighting void relegations that has really shop consequences of both ends. There is one of the game that probably I wouldn't tell you to watch head of the champion the race games, but it's still very interesting which is against Genoa because those are two big clubs and very real possibility that one of them gets ready gated this weekend general in the renovations right now. But if they beat Tina they go ahead of them, and Tina who should be nowhere near that spot should be nothing nowhere near the compensation for they could go down. So that's another game with a lot riding on that very well. Apollo another question for you. Franz wants to know is whole wheat pasta a thing in Italy. I saw this on with her coming in. I mean look in Italy all kinds of pastor things some of those things that assaulted tourists. Some of those things that are popular at one part of the country, not another part of the country. I haven't eaten I don't know if I've ever eaten whole wheat pastor in Italy, but I'm show that you can find it and you can have it. So it's not a thing. And. If he's exactly I don't know why you gotta be our ball. He's done to their own and doing the whole Italian tourism thing. You come along and cook it for you. You don't need it. Other one of our next question is the betting variety. Brett wants to know or says, I bet on Liverpool to win the Champions League last September eight to one I can hedge. My bet by betting on Tottenham to win, including extra time penalties to one, should I hedge or let it ride. I'm Ryan for gambling. Let it ride. Right. What do you think you got? Well. If you real- gamble, you just let it go bought if yo- sensible money until them. And that we covering, you can't lose just to be clear Liverpool legend. Steve Nicol said, put your money on Spurs. Hearing, you know, going ahead during had you let it ride. Let it Rodman right? I'm watching to game you know already. It was invested with you had your rooting for both teams. So then like you don't you're not really rude. If. You're going to lose. To cover you Beth. He do enough to cover know phone. So you go home. Yeah. So you still win. Say plates live on the conservative mullahs. Live on the edge liberal live. Little Stevie Gumbel or a stupid Gumbo. Depends on which one you know points, which one I am Brennan gamble in my opinion ship. Anyway. Okay. Don't. That don't. Insight, nor Cal liberty. Disclaimer. Disclaimer by Steve Nicol. Now, this is a fun which summer tournament. Are you guys most excited about Chaka? Old world. On the show. Chaka. I'm going to breeze, right? Alright wimbledon. I'm going to America. Okay, nice new Cobra. Markelle. You got the vibe on who might win it now, just to watch it the net vol- will cups owners. Well, is it who's a favorite there? Don't know English strong. Okay.

I don't get a lot of time to watch the women's games as much, and I think, with summer, which hopefully it's going to be big, comma for work standpoint, memory forty and just checking out. All right. US will be one of the favorites in that tournament. Thanks. We'll go that all summer here on punts for that. That favorites. Deep research on Gemini, Derek. Wants. No is LeRoy sonny's, moved to Byron a step up in his career Stevie, this one's for you. Well, if he's plan. Enza stipple. Pack. Absolutely. Haunt us confirmed, there's interest from Byron Yogi, lo said it would be good move, you'll shock. Yeah. Having a great move for. For talented on this. I don't know what happened between him and Pat, but clearly fellow to favor at least needs to me that move back to Jim nothing. It'd be a good one. It'd be funny. You'll you indulge in a winning didn't play them, right? Fantastic. Did you pick them? All right. Our final question comes from Guinness has Stevie invited subdues place for dinner yet. Pasta. I actually yesterday, you know. Yes. When it was following Unicom. I've thought very thing you did. I did. Because we're on a diet of. Okay. All right. I'll take that is the reason.

The movements of all of the party that will be strictly monitored will be little if any contact with anybody outside of that party and to quote the cab Basseterre to Spain Hugh Elliot, he said they will be living in a bubble to reduce risk now it has of course being a relatively. Relatively quiet week in Madrid with this doesn't stop the media from speculating, so let's take a look at the latest market. Reports mccraw media add water camera dingus future. It's thought was going to be in France with his club ran. It seems that relations between the two have salad is calling for contract extension negotiations. It's left. The play is believing. That's the club. Just want to maximize the amount of revenue. They get for him. Maybe it's time for him to move. On Feb, he is just seventeen years of age. Madrid's interest was significant, but with the current financial situation of the restraints in place eighteen million investment in the future is not to deemed to be prudent at the moment, which means it appears the PSG by Munich could be potential destinations for him if he decides to go this summer. Moving on severe is twenty one year old French defender Jewels coon day. Who's just completed a successful first season since ninety? Bordeaux is names appeared as a legitimate target for next season. His contract runs until two thousand, twenty, three, the relations between the Madrid off very good. I'm there is potential here for Clare. Exchanges Regi lawn in particular and Deed Kubo that said. It still looks very unlikely that severe. We'll let him go after just one season. East Coast Future though is being speculated upon again. Guardiola's plants Manchester City are unknown, but they could include a move for Iskoe, especially with the Bruin are looking for this one more significant move of his career, the fee incentive to be in the region of fifty five million Iska the movement. Nothing as year is official, but of course that doesn't mean to say that it isn't happening. Some people coating at the sale of the century is underway with the objective of Madrid. One hundred, fifty and one hundred and eighty million euro from sales, take your pick from fifteen plus names. All said to have futures elsewhere names familiar of course. But this time instead they do include Martin odaguard. Southie dat remained committed to having him next season loan letters, also the view of the flabby anything yet to fear is any form of agreement with Madrid. At the moment of this is going to happen Tony Cruz was offering up his views on the situation surrounding Gareth failed. He said it's unsatisfying tree for everybody here. He originally wanted to leave last summer. Club said he s then no I. Don't know. He said if it still annoys him that it didn't happen at just. Hang with Gareth Bale play himself. It's being reported has said that he is ready to leave I is a condition attached. He went below the. The seventeen million disease that he's currently fade, so it's safe to assume that unless money comes from China. He will as expected to be here next season once again, spending mess debate on the bench onto Luke Yovich the latest hear his. There is nothing to add from. The meetings. Agent had in Italy last week. With Milano Napoli your fantasy. Of course, also interested return to Bundesliga is not at the question either Niko. Kovac already put in a personal request to him. They would love to have him back. In Germany, rb Leipzig as well remember have fifty million available after team verners move to Chelsea and of course there's PSG as well so there are a multitude of. Potential places he could go and don't forget. We other option as well, and that is that he stays in Madrid, and actually delivers on some of the potential that they saw in him when they signed a year ago onto Hamas Rodriguez now there's a name that rarely leaves the meteor and hasn't done for wash eighteen months or so now Manchester United continue to be linked to as indeed do taught number. Don't discount interest, which is now building in Portugal, Benfica and FC Forte said to be interested in today. That was a report PSG are also considering an offer. Rodriguez is on the brink of signing for Vittorio after he rejected severe and Milan, the fee will be in the region of twenty million euro, and there will be a buy back clause in the contract. Kubo has an ever growing list of teams who want to take him either online on permanently next season or any in deleted, either but also Bundesliga now in Spain Granada, bettys and saute data all wanted, but it's via who had said have the edge it presents. Paul does the reason there is. They have qualified for next season's Champions League. Gets Halfaya trying to line up an audacious quadruple deal bringing in Brahim, Diaz Brazilian rainy a K. Zeus Book Meyer out. WHO's also interesting Lancia at the moment and Audrey reserves doubtful that they would get all four deals, but a him diaw and my around won't. That could happen if he decides. He doesn't want to go to set and link up with Lancia. Madrid always on the lookout for new upcoming talent, and with that mind, Z., Dan has constant I over Algierian International Pataudi. His season ended due to knee injuries. Last game was actually back in December, but the niece coach. Patrick Vieira has provided very good reports on a player who came from Core Trish Im- Belgium back in two thousand eighteen. He scored seven goals in his first forty two appearances.

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. ESPN FC to have you with us for this Tuesday edition of talk early. Steve Nicol Chaka his lots of ashen Salazar here with you plenty to get to plenty of Champions League. To look forward to PS g Liverpool coming up watch begi tomorrow. But let's start at Old Trafford Manchester United at the death. Thanks to who else are wanted for Laney feeding young boys and with the victory Voth, and you vent have advanced out of group H young boys eliminated from the competition. You would think this result would lead to a very happy Josaia Marino here who was both managed. Full some of my lovers. Just want to say for the ones that like stats fourteen seasons in the Champions League foot times qualify for the through the grew phases. Never one of my team. Stay behind the group face the season. I didn't play chimpanzee. I won't do as some records. Did you? Thank you. Thank you. Good record colleague, Donald Currie, interviewing jersey, got short shrift, then actually fourteen seems to be the number that will Josie because fourteen Champions League is he says just fourteen points behind mindset. No. So well done on the fourteen. He's fighting fires every week here against crystal policy up. Performance and again here left to a long ball anti Lukaku off the bench of flick on to motto on Fellini who does get it in the back of the net to kill the game off an engineer time, otherwise they go to Valencia and have to avoid defeat. So that's how desperate it was. Let's be Frank Kubota. United are almost unbearable to watch on the sooner as soon as one of the big boys. No co stages they will played over two games. The result. Maybe more than acceptable was the performance acceptable for Manchester. United at home against young boys Stevie Nola chill chill at freshman. Converted nNcholas John in the first half of man in a little let lease you. Maybe they could have calmed down and open Dalton played. But you know. Critics getting too. United actually he's he's insufferable team listened to. I mean, she he doesn't mention the fact that the full team teams. He's go groups it should go the crews because the teams who is worth what miles ahead of the opposition. So it's no fee a tall. And and finally, we must sit and think about stuff like this before games can come out with it. When you concentrate on what you're going to be clever as opposed to what's going on on the field play. I think what prompted gypsum renews response is exactly Manchester United. Woo. I've been saying for some time that I find more and more his post game press, conferences and interviews are all about a self-preservation letting reminding everybody exactly how good manager. You was a zoo to see don't believe what you just saw on the previous ninety minutes, which is exactly what happened against the team. Bottom of the group a team that Manchester United went to unwanted mill. Not of a sudden at home needing needing a win to be absolutely. Shouldn't do go through you start with Fellini madij, and Fred as a midfield. I mean, you've got Lukaku and popcorn on the bench. And again you rely on for Leney and in ninety minute. This is not what anybody expects Manchester United yet still they go through and as far as renews concern job done. You mentioned PA Lukaku on the bench. Alexi sanchez. Not even in the eighteen. Dan Marino overestimate his team today. What they could do you mean, Tori, overestimate? I mean, then clearly didn't start his best team. And I think he thought he could get the job done against. Just to actually go based in that best team should be well, the Kako mapping all. But if you want to go when names on the jazzy then. Yeah. But you want to go and performances which. Well, what what we saw today wasn't much better than Pablo Lukaku Alexi Sanchez ca gender. So that's why I'm saying is the best team where we can put the big names on the back of jerseys, the Sanjay's and the ball buzz. But I mean, they really pa- juice been anybody. Ellen MDL native one and we'll set and here you should be like a team went and you can come on. And while that was when United win they went ugly. Generally, wouldn't you lose a draw the draw ugly? That's kinda as at the moment. I tell you define for for not going to the last March day, there's a player who may may not be there much longer. David Hale Davut the hair pulled off one of the saves of the season. From not deflection to kick to stop young boys from going one nil up. So, you know, something you can come in a managing maybe get pre simplist late late Dafa to here. But Shneebly said that she's a preacher hair stick from a radio. I mean, you you don't just come up with us. Can you stop you go to your head? But well, Don t Nagi wrote, but I hit Impreza team with estimate clo- money an estimate of experience for again put in another performance that was by this average, we've got Rapahannock Stein with us rapper. We being too hard on Josie Marino and Manchester. After this performance. No, I don't think. So. Because if this before and said, come in isolation, you'd say, okay. This is one of those chimpanzee nights where they don't really turn out. They know that they're winning doesn't really matter. But this is just the latest performance in a long line of really disappointing under own performance of John suggest that United are going anywhere you'd expect them to play against a team like young boys. And absolutely dominate be better individually, collectively create more concede less, but it's really even game with not lot in it. And that is an indictment. I think off Wei United at the moment. Now, they go into port to write this your vehicle into port one. Now some United funds with you know, her. The woods for the trees might say. Well, you know, something that big teams are not going to scare us because we went over to Sharon. And we did what we did. And we we kept you down to one nil at home that doesn't tell that just doesn't tell a picture of what they're gonna come up against because really. And surely over the games at the event accepts him bought, but it shouldn't have been seven or eight up. She should have been so. Fica? I really informed him and the Champions League. And I'm thinking we were talking even look a young team like Dortmund Asama playing great then keep up and play without type of football. I'm not I'm not sure it takes a very good team to not mind. Chest unite to note early this year. What was it severe the motive in the Champions League? Over the great city. I was it was severe awful form. Come come into that year yet to this kind of this negative pragmatic approach that level even against teams who almost forced their way onto that level in severe at the time. I get better Manchester. United is not it doesn't necessarily take a document or boss. A to to see see where past Mancha's United. We focus a lot on like the post match press conferences. I want to read you guys a couple of things he said pre-match before young boys. He said it was not a crucial game that was a quote twice in the pre-match press conference. You've been a manager. Would you ever say anything like that? No, no. I mean. For MTC them. You have to wonder where this guy's head up. You know, not only did he see that. They also said that the is start listening to him. So why do there? I mean, if I'm the board and the managers telling me, the players are not listening to Manny more that has got to be the springboard to make a move to make a change. And you wonder how did not want tonight? I mean, we would would it be done had the lost. Would he be done? You got a thing should as their Champions League. Eight did make a change you think. So if they'd lost night, you think he'd been gone. Listen, if you are indeed, if you mind, it is in the press tell everybody who wants to listen that the players will not listen to then there's nowhere else to go is the angriest man in the world with at the moment. He's not. But not take something coming from me. He's like nobody picked those water bottles out. But you know, it kick the fossil look like a happy celebration and each slam the other ones down it was like voiced frustration. But not frustration comes down to him. You know, that's the way he can blame the media all he wants the TV that the gentleman list, the press conferences, but these guys like a sales asking questions for a reason is because he's he's he's co themselves anti call and. If I because he hasn't been able to get the players on the pitch molded into team. Good enough certainly domestically to anywhere near a challenge. And they're looking at me, there's not many be a challenge for the Champions League. Let's be honest in the knockout stages. That's that's the target. But there's not going to be a Champions League challenge not from this site. So that's group H let's check out group at for Manchester City gets a two two draw away to Leone they are through with ten points. The ports. Wait, oh, the goal spores for Manchester City, but again, perhaps not the victory many, Manchester City fans and a lot of pundits were expecting wrath. How do we explain Manchester City's seemingly different form in Europe versus the dominance? We see in the Premier League. What I think now three possible explanations, and they might not be mutually exclusive one is coincidence. It just happens to complacency certainly that affected him in the first game against Leon. There were sleep. It could be fueled by domestic and Philip -bility that you know, they come to game in Leon against not the best team in front thinking. We will be fine third reason is something I think that could be we'll worrying which is the way that mesh the city play. So demanding is so risky if you will with so many people always being near to the border and dominating deepen the offensive opposition have that if they're not one hundred percent on it then in Europe against top class teams are really good at exploiting space. They're vulnerable. We saw it last year. We started e before against Monaco. We saw it throughout the guada- is even at Barcelona when their way formless pretty poor. I think there's something in the way these teams play that if they're hundred percent or ninety two unbeatable, but if to just a little bit short then especially in Europe against. That type of caliber of opposition. They are a little bit fragile at the back, which is why I would say that a powder keg. When it comes to the knockout stages to talking about what Rob's talking about because they've got the genius and the brilliance about them. If you think back to Liverpool last year at can be over in ninety minutes. And if they do get it wrong, and occasionally that happens against the real big boys with the the real of Europe's talent, then you have about night euro. And I think that's why it's too early in. Well, they're the favorites. And they're going to win an S competition. You have a lapse an off night switch off even if the games over two legs. You're you're done nothing. That's the big worry for SETI. We know that they could probably play of an entertainment competition at the moment and couldn't Real Madrid. And including bus alone. However, they're also all these teams of defensive problems, but they've all been over the lane before say haven't been over the line. They have one of those defensive nights against a really good site. Then wrote touch ho that's how tater as for them. You mentioned Manchester City as Champions League favorites, they are actually still the Champions League favorites going on ten to three Barcelona. You bet Byron eunuch Real Madrid still in that top five Munich Madrid at ten to one near you see the rest of the top ten. Wouldn't tracking the domestic doesn't bunny you to find them hiding under wardrobes next to law soaks due to although scurry off what's ugly fascinating about the dust bunny is that although they'll not actually essential creatures when they would not only saves people money, but also has a ninety seven percents customer satisfaction rating. It's obvious to them you should switch because Yesler. Switching to Geico. Is a no brainer. Oh, no. It's the dust bunnies. Only natural predator on the lung on is run along. Fine Munich, the big winners in groupie, I access well punching they're to get into the round of sixteen two one winners over Ben fica Robina Bray thoughts give race on the score. She just like the old days so raft. What does this mean is Niko Kovac off the hot seat arson banger can tell on the beach for another couple of weeks or what? Never fully believes Niaz in Vegas stories to be honest with you. But Niko Kovac was on the drink that much is true the board even so fit to talk to some of the players before the game saying you really need to pull yourself together. This is a big game you have to perform. The performance and the result gives everyone a little breathing space, quite the discussion. But how's the study how much does this fourteen director? Just a few minutes ago came out in the media and the mic zone and said well in the next game on Saturday Niko Kovac is our coach. Now does that sound to you like a job guarantee or a club being really convinced the manager what have to say actually next game he still on the bench. So those bigger questions about his management style about the team's performances. They haven't gone away. The only thing that it does right now is that it doesn't make his dismissal immediate or force buying into the decision that they really don't want to take because oldest us in Vegas stuff is just a debate about what do Byeon if they have to pull the trigger. They don't want to pull the trigger. They want to somehow see out the season. One more point. I want to quickly make is that this result doesn't only help watch. But it also helps the club the board because they've been on the fire. As you know for not really pushing that transition forward for not really changing the team for not really putting new guys in. But when you have I in, Robin and Rubery n Levin ski coming up with the goods tonight. It makes it easier for them to say you see what have you been talking about? We knew that this was going to be fine all along. So it just gives everyone a bit of time to assess. But I think in the final assessment coverage that has a lot of things to worry about rapid-fire Munich do have to pull the trigger as you say. And it's not arts and Megara as you clearly believe it won't be then what are the other options? Like where would buy me to go? I think it's almost you have around the honor options right now, that's why don't want to pull the trigger. If there was a ready made replacement Daf there was you pike is for example, ready to come back and forth time, they might have already done it. But there isn't anyone and they noted not gonna get anyone in November. That's really suitable. It's just not realistic us, and it's not going to come in in the member and solve buys problems, which are really deep and complex. So they need to somehow make sure that this season doesn't end and told them disaster, they need to find some kind of acceptable end to the season with Nico covert, preferably. A democrat comes to March April solicitor final moms. They will need to line someone up and unique is full of rumors about them looking at names that right now not available, but might be further down the line as you see there by Munich outside the Champions League spots. It was a good performance today. Craig was it convincing though, are they back. I just don't think convention at all. All at the moment. And I think that's the big problem Fulham. I mean the defensively have been per for the Abulkader season. They were completely outplayed in the second half and the Dortmund game when they were comfortable possession after forty five minutes, and then they just got swamped. I I'm just not not convinced at all about they could get on the phone to your pie in kitchen. But he's he's just not having it. So as rob said, the options are not really there. And let's be honest. If the senior pleasant, I'm not saying done, tools and some of the games. But if the senior players are not happy or the thanks something's right. You're not getting the best performance show. We've only got the katelyn Solti what the end result is going to be a not they'll pull the trigger group G in action on Tuesday. So is route Madrid through. Kunal winners in Rome. Madrid against massive massive result. Definitely needed this weekend. Have you looked at this table? And you look at that result. You think this has been nice? That will for Real Madrid. But the the truth that are has not been comfortable whatsoever. That to know victory and rule the pulled off a don't know because in the first half, they just go plead. Cooked wise, meet an incredible safe from ship. How about the miss the miss at the end of the? As messed from a yard with an anti goal show. Listen yes of qualified Real Madrid. That means that they've got some time to get by two will the want to be the miles away from being the team and got bail schools. Again, you talk about taking a little bit of pressure off him, but Real Madrid assu far off the Mark here who you talk about the team move with with the problems re-emerged Madrid. Exactly that yet somehow managed to come up with results. Exactly when the when they need them most they will often the first off on why hall room somehow kept Real Madrid in this game is simply beyond me spoke about the chances gone. And then all of a sudden after the break Riyadh Kamal get your goal. And what they do is they defend that lead in advance it. But this is a poll readmitted site expected more from Real Madrid Rome up to the eighteen that are punching their spot into the Champions League knockout round. Champions League group c ultra competitive Napoli Liverpool. PF Stephen Red Star Belgrade still in the mix. There. Odds advance not all that bad sixteen to one good news for PS PSG fans of healing about bay. And neymar will be in the starting lineup tomorrow that according to Thomas to go today. So given that information Stevie how confident are you that after this Liverpool PS g match Liverpool is still being one of those top two spots. I'm cope with a little bit. But won't lose this. You know, both Liverpool Unnop live comfortably defended already against PS. G okay name Evan bopping me, maybe not hard. But the certainly won't be at the shops. I think the pressure is all on PS GT KOMO and they've Sean defensively they can be go and live a Pula sue set up to keep a good shot at lane and unusual that piece in the attack the way, they do the best to punish PS. Jeez. Oh, I'm going into this game. Very cool. Almost clear. Hey plan. Huddersfield something. This is the reason PSG of five points because they haven't been out the best in Europe. And when the I think the pressures on them to come forward and try one those game Molin as live about. John liverpool's. A hell of a pressure on Thomas Turco here better than reminds the the remote for that club. And the Mon who they've spent but the the best nets session. There were looking at home against not Cleveland de Maria that late goal. Played played. Well, they didn't play rail in the second half Naples, but Liverpool up just lost a step as the seasons gone on and the league still going well, not playing a convincing style. At the moment. It's been it's been a different Liverpool on whether the international break has done them. Any good? I don't know. I'm not confident as would have been a couple of months ago of let Bill Clinton Patterson Gantner as oh. I just think it's such a hard one. I agree with the Liverpool haven't been as convincing as it were previously. But I think I'd be back. They've they Sydney your whole more improved than number show twelve months ago. I don't think they got better. Whereas they lead from the front last year. I think I'll be back they far more reliable. And that's where I think Liverpool win this thing. Now. For me PS g incredibly talented spoken about the two toddlers in particular how good they can be. But for me things have to go well for peer street to for you to see him Bob BMI their best. And I just don't see you can club allowing PG to get into the rhythm on how things or the rule we if they go there and roughly a few feathers. I just don't feel pearsley. Have what it takes to still get the job done given. What we've seen from Liverpool defensive raft. Do you agree is the pressure here? Pretty squarely on PS g. The pressure is on pressure Sunnis until Mr. hall. I think he is his job prospects might be pretty poor. If he doesn't qualify don't think that would necessarily help put on the night, though, the fact that two hundred on the pressure what I wanna see from mulitple is really having learned the lessons from the first two away games. Which of course, they lost in this league were they were two passive, and when they won the bowl, they couldn't use it while certainly against Napoli they played so little football. They lost the ball almost immediately back, and it's great when you play a little bit more actively when you play on a transition, but he didn't have to use the ball. Really? Well, and they didn't do that at all. And I think only a really at the shops at their best when it comes to the movement and also the midfield playing the kind of passes that the three guys frowned upon then if got realistic chance, but then you really need to up the game. So only compared to the last couple of away performances in the Champions League. The maintenance is changed for Liverpool. And that's the half. Have to be right frame of mind, because you know, a month ago, whatever it was they probably fought that we're gonna end to Paris with three points from from Belgrade from plane right star in the bag, and they didn't a horrendous over there looks possession. But it wasn't a great night on all the pressure on game. Now, we're really we're gonna we're gonna find both sides of the day. You know, whether chick has team where he wants and that option flying in league on the window the window here and clock. Great start domestically chop league final last year, but house he best house. This I got what it takes to deny space for the star man of PSU. We're going to find out from one top group to another group B Barcelona right now atop the group. They've got ten points already through to the round of sixteen but between inter and Spurs right there. They will face off on Wednesday. Spurs prayed coming off the great performance over the weekend. And I keep it up to and that's cooperative. The need one against into then one against possible. And I forget the result against. Cotonou to keep out. But yeah, yes, the come. There were excellent up -solutely. Excellent. We can against yolks spores enter it'll be a organized site. But I I think the con- are capable it'd be an enter. I just don't think they will. Then the result in an accompanying and that's not going to be an office. So ultimately, I think it will be failure for it. Really? Well, they have to but in both games Arnaz already. Advanced Don, tried the argument with mobile. Go go down the day. Now, here's a look at the group. A standings those good somebody helped me with that Matha. Crew but the room, and Greg this is a believe your favorite group. Oh, yes. He is the group of death. And there's a group of light Ortho. Childcare gotta pass rate and the already eliminated promoted Moscow. Still talking about the game that wasn't played over the weekend. Conmebol hosting meetings today after the second leg between River Plate and Boca Juniors was cancelled over the weekend. We know the match we played December eighth or ninth. And we know that it will not be played in Argentina raff. What else do we know about the situation as it stands? Very little because it might or might not be played enough since young it might be played on the eighth. It might be played on the ninth of December comb Ables statement they've ache, and as you said leaving a lot of questions open. So the game will take place as things stand. That is already news that is to be what come to think even though a lot of people said, well, the game should be forfeited and ship just be awarded for Booker because if you have players injured, then how can you expect to play again but coma bought decided differently and now awaiting details to emerge rap. Let's change gears a little bit Christian pulisic reports say he will go to either Chelsea or Liverpool for seventy million pounds. What's more surprising to you about those reports where he might end up or the price tag? None of this is really surprising. Look, Kristen put a sick is out of contracts in twenty twenty dormant have said they will not let him go in the winter to open also know that it's going to be very very hard to keep him. If he doesn't want to renew his contract they cannot really afford to waive all that money could buy by letting him run on his contract. So the likelihood as STAN is that he's going to leave in the summer that we know that there's a big market for him in the primarily for both sporting reasons, but also think marketing, especially when it comes to US clubs soy British clubs with a US background like Liverpool. Like Man United that very interested in him because he is a superstar in American football. The problem is and it's a nice problem. But it is a problem. Nevertheless that is price. Tickets such even though Spiga clubs need to be absolutely certain that they can get the best out of him at that kind of money. And I think it's a difficult spot for him to be in. Because while he is on the verge of being a really great player. He's not quite there yet. And I think to go for sixty seventy million euros, whatever it's going to be could be eighty five. These are just numbers out of finance the moment. It's going to put a bit of pressure on him to read to Justice to these numbers. And the numbers will be big. And I think he's not quite there yet in terms of being a ready made impact player, he's close to it. But not quite they right now. He's not guaranteed minutes with earth. Doorman? How should American fans be about that? I wouldn't boy too much about doberma- flying. He was still see plenty of action. Russsian father likes to rotate the opened are likely to go deep. No competition. So we'll see him. But I think is a reflection of adult minutes quantity. But also his performances which have made him very valuable for dope. Minova last few years, but not quite indispensable. And this is the point I was trying to make earlier maybe I wasn't very succinct. I'll try again, if you wanna buy play like that you need to know. This is going to be a player who's immediately. Our starting eleven he's the guy who's gonna make a difference every single time and econ quite a dope. Open at the moment. Before the cups. It can afford him. That would all have similar players all slightly better players even head of him. And they'll need to think very carefully if they want to take risks, by the way, there's one the we haven't mentioned, and I'm sure they will definitely be interested as well. For all the reasons we mentioned, and that's buying. So it might just be a little bit easier for him to get into the current buying team that into Liverpool or even Chelsea the US men's national team fans, also very interested in the reports linking Zach step into Manchester City seven to ten million dollars transfer fee. That's been reported. Will we ever see Zach Stephan actually playing for Manchester City, though? It's a really good question. I mean right now with Edison being totally untouchable. It's the number one. I think is difficult. It looks like a kind of money bowl move that they have spotted a talent and consider him undervalued. We noted mentioned city just the flagship of a whole host of other clubs that are affiliated. So be easy for them to give him game time at some of the European or this or even US franchises. So I think it's a good spot to be because you will sort of be involved with reading players really good clubs, whoever that's at city. I think it's a bit early. He's twenty three four go keep but still very young. And he needs to have a lot more experience at this level. All right.

Whether it's in a game or action Trenin. He's always you please L boys, or at least conscien- with these with the big toward buying in. There's always one of these guys. And that's just another one of those things this things on. I don't think he's made to do it. Because he just doesn't know he's not in full control all the time all of these things. The world class. Little bit knees elbows this deliberate. Really our intent shouldn't be the law as did retinal. All because because we all know most of the time is not intent of the liberal.

That's reliability investment dot com hello and welcome to the big kickoff with Racing Post Paul. My name is Luke more and joining me today to talk about. European football is European football expert pilot by and the racing post mark. Langdon chops thought let's start with Spain and Lita and we put a tweet out a poll out to follow was that Racing Post Bor- asking them is the one hundred seven million pound transfer of Antoine grysman better business Athletico Madrid or Barcelona. Now sixty four percents of people said it's a better deal for Atletico Madrid Paolo. How do you feel about aw yeah. It's interesting isn't it. You think that this is a player who's been so fundamental to being a consistent top four signed to challenging for the Champions League to just Jiminy being there for for the last era under Jaeger Simonian for people to be that sort of coming down that strongly one side is a bit surprising to me the same. I think NCAA agree with them that created piece of business boss Loner. I think it feels a bit not Scottish. Oh because Valle Verde is always been a big fan of grysman once in his career but when grassman gives his into after signing and says oh it's like they're trying to build a video game team here at the moment well. That's what it feels like to me. Is this the player that Boston of most needed or is it adjust well. Here's another really great. I hesitate to say it but Galactic Auto Madrid word that they're adding to the team. Obviously he's a great player expect affecting school goals but I love it from Barcelona standpoint so I suppose if you're asking me to put them side by side by a good price for Mexico. I suppose reply. WHO's not getting younger and mark. The Democrat doesn't like it's still way out there at twenty two one for the league this season disagree puddle. I think it's a bad deal for Barcelona simply because let's go spend an inaccessible one hundred million on Shell Felix. We've we've no idea if he's any good on this. He's only played one season. In Portugal score goals in the Europa League he could be Berlin but we don't know that at least agrees man you know woke up winner. He's absolutely proven in Spain and I think he's needed Barcelona to replace Luis Suarez. AURAS are Suarez is definitely on the wane and we saw that last year and the Copper America I think Barcelona we've grease man. Maybe from with Neymar to come will win. LALITA wants a gain of Infringed Yong is what they needed in midfield allows them to protect that defense a little bit more and Real Madrid fruit at they've signed <unk> at Amazon and they brought in other players the back still worry about them essentially scoring enough goals and I've got that problem at all with Barcelona Athletico. It's a season of rebuild for them losing grease men and Gordon and one friend in Philippi Louise. I think it'd be too much for them. A lot bustling boss lowering off four to six expires to win the league this season two. That's what you think about that. Pop your comments below. That's we request to France then another poll on that racing post boy is name are more trouble than these he's worth P._S._G.. Eight percent of people say yes. He is when we talk about France and we have to talk about and I suppose in this case we have to talk about of course yeah and it'll be interesting to see how plays out this summer. I think part of my thinking on Grysman is even influenced by the thought they might sign Neymar at which point really is a bit man to me and more troubling is is worth a three day birthday party and makes everyone come along three sisters. It's a guy who who argues with his teammates about free kicks. He's he's it's hard to say. If a player who scored you go to game and he's been brilliant there but do I think that would win the League announced him with Mbappe and Cavani yes I do have they won the championship with him no so yes he wants to seven to win the League but I'm sorry to win illegal in about what you'd expect the other runs in Rogers Leon twelve to one thirty to one in a Monaco well forty two one is the most boring league in your I mean somebody who quit following the Oh everybody has really harsh because people have been dumbly signs because because there are some really good players they're all unfortunately most of them play for persons you man and then the Elvis of got one or two other than P._S.. You've got twelve Sylvania's taking his first. That's my year job. Leo makes that interesting this season for me. I think it's a fascinating story with genius but one bet here Bapai's one to free to win the Golden Boot goalscorer now of course he's the most likely one Anderson Cavani when he plays is not that far behind him in terms of what it offers seem goals rose and if name or does go I mean Kevin is a much bigger price and I didn't take a minor injury and all of a sudden. He's a big run. That sounds funny to me. That's goes you'll specialists country and Paolo Italy tempting to think there's another one horse race over there. I mean the betting seem to think so eventers force Toronto of course at five to one. How do you see that season going this year. I think it's a really fascinating season this year. I think it's so predictable and in my opinion wrong everyone's jump straight to interest the second favorite's Kanteh's there I mean they've got a whole mess of a situation with three huge players economy nine gallon and even Peres it's all basically persona in on graft under Tony Kahn say and a lot to resolve before the season starts in my opinion. I think Napoli the transfer market. I think they definitely want to add talking midfield player. They were oftentimes. Rodriguez doesn't look like it's going to happen at the moment but the signing process mountainous for me is brilliant. I think if you keep could really bonding now you have the makings of the best investments like partying punish. It's all of Europe in my opinion. I think he's talking about the best sense of ECHINACEA l._l._C.'s in Kuta Bali and someone who's been breeding for number scenes scenes at AS Roma the last twelve seasons now the team conceded the fewest goals is always wants area and the fact that you've got Sarah Coming in event is you've got so much much turnover. You've got a new star football being played and we look salaries not crazy about the fence and that he finished second with actually because the second fewest goals in the season in that season but I think there is an opportunity this season Ancelotti that defense I think they might just be there might just be a challenge of six to one of the interest for you not not really <hes>. I prefer doing a event albeit that they've got to integrate under Serie. A different style of football also doesn't really feel like you've enters coach that we've come to expect but they still got Cristiano Renaldo and they're still go BA- NUCCI and now they've they've got the and you look at the squad gaming. It's talking recently this scored his bachelor twins Dave and nothing that Napoli I eleven I eleven Kevin. I think Napoli can give them a game in shown they can give them a game over whole season only a couple of injuries it takes and I think that's the big area of concern for me an an interest elsewhere twenty two one roy four hour forty Roemer of no real history winning. I think it's certainly those three streets head over to finish fourth all season but that would be a huge leap for them to challenge me. Lines big advantages won't be playing in Europe so few games but they haven't been able to spend this summer at all a new manager again coming in Michael in Gem Paulo. I think it's it's hard to anyone outside of those three being being taken. It must be some of you out. There who think event is won't win Sarah when you're crazy but if you are out there to put it in in the comments proposes video. Finally we move across the Germany. It's groundhog day bomb unika one to four is is this a one team. Same League as well. Maybe a little bit short prostate ninety two. What are you what are you. I'M GONNA keep being the optimist. Actually I think again you know favorites game. I think I think events favorites in Germany. I'm not sure again Munich favorites but should it be quite shortage that you look at the end of an era. That's happened there by saying goodbye to Robin to robbery saying Goodbye Rodriguez as well as insignificant goals says he's given given mats hummels leaving all of that has been replaced yet they came out of the summer transfer window blocks so fast. I guess signing Pavan Hernandez and everyone thought it was going to get sorted sorted out of scorn. Well have their place everyone there meanwhile some really interesting signings at Dortmund for it seem that perhaps even added by getting homes that thing that it was missing last season a little bit of experience a little bit of calm I don't know I don't think it's you could say it's unfeasible especially if we remember how fast did start lassie's now that you can. It's unfeasible they right around in inevitability about Roy School injured and obviously you know you need a little bit lock. If you back in and outside the on the Injury Front I think Roy says no I think is in what is essentially to raise. Racist is value the coach in loose in favor of pets. Niko Kovac and I think buying of lost that so bindis about when they nick in late goals and you can run on rubery will sort of demand high standards I think they've lost in getting rid of so many of the veterans I think maybe lost some of those that really set the mark of what it means to to play for by Munich pilots mentioned. Some of the Dorton signs of William Brandt has a whole new dimension to the team in the variety in which you can play out wide he can play for the middle as well expecting big things again from Jaden Sancho. Give me one one one team you can upset the applecart around Europe and win the league this season on the favorite of the ones that just mentioned during Christmas give me one just picked one of them of course you tobin bill yeah definitely definitely all right.

Gab and Juls: Is Solskjaer or De Gea to Blame for FA Cup Exit?

"The Happy Monday jewels the twentieth of July which means it's only eight days until Harry Canes Birthday I'm. I'm amped. I'm excited We've got I. Think a very good show. We'll be talking a little bit of in because of course they were held by. My dog is very angry. Not Happy told I mean he really is. A. Quickly of champions in Spain in although not really surprised in Turkey will do all that, but we're going to start at the top. We're GONNA. Get our specialist Mark Ogden on to help us with this united falling apart against Chelsea three nil defeat, Dhabi. Not Good Arsenal Manchester City play full strength squads Chelsea arguably I know there's a lot to get into, but I just want to start with the squad selection here. United have a chance at silverware. We should say hey, you know. By. He pays the bt, but he rests a lot of players on. POGBA Marcia is it. Is this a case of? The Champions League is it as simple as that just a priority some arms. Well I think. I was the jumping. Over the FA Cup I think I think that will remain the case. The united now sable hugely will be the first thing I'd say mitigation is that you're not? You played on Thursday night, which was forty hours less than Chelsea so that was. Still you know prior to? The Palestinian put the same starting eleven five games released, and that shows you that sell shots from eleven is a beyond that. He's not so confident housing. We saw why today because you know Daniel James Cameron just simply not good enough had a great start. In August but it nothing sensitive, just a Yankee Ruins and the you know the. Good disagree somewhere. We haven't got that that. I was surprised at the hair play because they usually a day off the company. You had a day off yesterday as well. On the pitch, but you know United States. All of the the quality everybody was looking at off again. Everybody's is reliable bits. Lindelof is unreliable. Hard Maguire is pretty much reliable. Obviously, this morning shows him. A lot of keystone culturally running around in defense in the Bali's so. Social may changes. Play Against Seattle West on the book. The makes changes you know to look a lot weaker than the I. Mean They already looked tired? In the last two games towards the end of the game, he made mistakes against Southampton by taking off Pug by Brunner another almost at the same time, which means they had no players to get the ball out. You know from their own half of the whole deal and so two yards against pilots that look tired as well. So in a way was right to it was what's rotate orgies right? Though there there's either the enough town outside of the very strong I eleven, yeah! I don't know why. and Go back to three the back when the four two three one worked pretty well before there was no need again to go back and then demand start by star Brandon Williams. Threatening. When You don't need three the bar. On the. I'M GONNA stick up for a little bit because part of saw okay. Let's lost. A Spurs earlier in the day I mean I don't know he's GonNa Change. Change his team lost, but he could have approached things a little differently, but. If, you look at the table and simple simple math. United Play Leicester on on the last day of the season. Right and the reality is that even if united have a game in hand now, right? But even if united win that game in hand, they go three points clear of Leicester, but if they lose to lester, and it's all naming ninety minutes their their goal difference is I think. He's exactly the same. If, they lose I x number of goals more whatever than. They're not playing in the Champions League next year so I think we give the social pass here. I am not think he. Spurs game of the week and thinking that the F. B. Gold Wednesday and was was crucial. If less considerable more think it would really soon the balance in the United States, so I think it needs to beat West on Wednesday and it can beat the wild if they can win formula that gives them a cushion for for less than we can. Because they have to answer to. My side is I, think they stopped close and I think socially rights. They has to focus on those two games because. We were GONNA. Give social past mark, but we need to need to save time here, so we can go and go laughter the villain of the day. All right, we narrative here the guy the guys made mistakes. He's not the keeper. He was I think most people would agree with that. They're pretty regis mistakes. I think. We can say mistakes on all three goals, the second one possibly being the worst. What I don't get here is he's the highest paid goalkeeper in the world, and he's the highest pay goalkeeper in the world. Because his contract was expanded. Correct me if I'm wrong extended by a year ago. And the thinking at the time was that well. If we don't extend his contract, you lose them on a free. You can't sell them because nobody wants to buy him because he makes too much money already. So. Let's extend him and keep him around dot com. You extend the contract because you think he's very good, and he earns deserve that money and you want to keep him because he's, but the argument is because you can't sell them if you don't extend his and you have to go and spend sixty eighty million on all black or or whatever I mean. Is that a fair summation Mike or am I being unfair Jordan? You don't know. I miss you but I think. He called it wrongness thing. I think we all seem to have declined slowly at first, but I think roughly since the World Cup in two thousand eighteen. Years, and you know that mistake. You make sure the second goal on Sunday identical mistake that Tottenham in the first car to start, Shaw Stratagem couldn't hold onto it, and he's making the same mistakes repeatedly and I think this is beginning remarkable. Joel hearts months ago, keep who? Goes into comfort zone fall was better than the is, and the mistakes were always the same mistake download left, and it's the same with the hair straight through his body lotion left Oxford the fate and They so many times now. I think he's de Goalkeeper. Think the you know. He's a great goalkeeper Alison Edison to stake in. They've all left him behind. Because that pet supply different way, we'll take among the penalty area. Come out of the penalty area the hair. Lucky. And I think social there has to make you be calling. Evan talks for a is a Furby Claw, and he does what so focus needs to do. Well Ferguson Drop Jim late February boss has multiple. Tell you Ma Busni Tim Howard. He was ruthless goalkeepers. With all due respect, Mark Bosnia's Australian Tim Howard's American. My similar Taibbi I don't know what planet the guys from I mean. It takes a lot more hosts by here to go and drop the guy. You just made the highest paid for the world, but I think dropped oded, so what what? Do it exactly the same. No I think the big difference. Osos contract expires in twelve months. Henry Emmy dropped him as wet. Story he's good enough. Drop him regardless of the money's on. I'm not saying you should never be dropped, but I want to go back to because I think we need to flag. These mistakes were made before I know. We've been hard on Woodward. I've been maybe more accommodating towards Woodward and some other people, but this is what bugs me about the decision I understand as we said before in the summary Why you felt you had to extend. The has contract right because it was objectively hard son, because the decline, it already started his reputation outside England wasn't what it was within England and the win that many other big clubs who could afford them when you to keep her I get that. But then hang on then you hardball him and you say listen, we'll give you new contract. But you know what we're going to cut your wages because he was already an enormous wages, or we're GONNA. We're GONNA. Do this on our terms. If you want to become a free agent and you want to test yourself out there, good luck, go see where you go. Go go enjoy your time in China. Go enjoy playing for some Europa League team have fun at Roma or Valencia wherever wherever you're agent takes you. That's when I think that's when you had to go to him. Show us. You know I'd like to see more from clubs doing this. Show us that you're the keeper were before because you've been playing up the contract, and now you WANNA raise, and instead they folded and I think. Thing is clubs do that position of strength and united. What was strong last year? They about place just lost marine your social. Were Club. That was strong too I think. This to what happened with stole them as. They made a call Sanchez Sanchez go and I think when you get to hire the contract now expected to lose poke at some point, so they couldn't as. In the world, they couldn't be seen losing to their biggest stars at same time. Always these situations. If you'd say that pope was remained I think he will stay on this period about the hair. Start with him as Austin is because like you say, he's way to big, there's not a market goes keeps right now in the world, the could see that remotely interested will be events I don't. I don't think. Go. Well. Six months ago I don't go. Keep of events is standard. So, you wouldn't swap chairs. Wake up! This is such a limited scope to go to so the state within all right. We're GONNA HAVE TO WE'RE GONNA. Have to leave it there mark Thanks to this I you guys aren't GonNa. Save myself the last word on this first. All the fact that Arsenal did it with those will simply means that another club that made really poor decisions contractually. Made, the same mistake that that united did. And I also think though. This is something that's not going to go away and as as mark, said No. Dean Henderson and he's better than the hair. You don't pay the hair regardless how much! Dean Henderson when they extended the hair, this is the. Cheap, Nice Nice hundred. Per Me He's GonNa, come back, play him. Then you don't cave on five quid a week or three hundred thousands. It shouldn't shut him Susan about Jill's he's. Not Ready from the united the best number two in the Premier League and They don't give them an opportunity. To Take Me Martinez Round is. Just if you have someone better than the hair, don't play. You don't have to drop him regardless. I don't disagree with that point. augie thanks so much. To argue is such a role talking united. And Woodward always favorite topics that we mentioned Chelsea at all. But. Okay so gifted them goals, but. Chelsea pretty well. Yeah, they would have won't even without. The has mistakes I think they were far too good for united. The different reason we talked about the changes united may tactically and in terms of the players, but I think game plan was perfect spot on to go through the back for game. Now this was great. The energy intensity depressed. I mean reese James, macos Lonzo mountain billion of course, and then she ru in the form of his life. Maybe you know. He stood for in September. And Yeah Okay I think. There are a lot of rest earlier this season. Yeah Yeah Yeah. I wanted yesterday and I said that to him. If, he'd pay the more the first half of the season, which is very good, you haram was really glad. I'm not saying that that would change Abraham was playing every single game. Yeah, I do wonder for example. If you do lose at home against something, I wonder if you lose a homework is boomer with if Jerus- stars that game, maybe and you play a bit of a different way. You just because they don't want us to be knee-jerk. What about all the people who talk about? Wool Chelsea lost eleven games of season, and the defenses by yeah okay. People say when they drop points or when they concede goals. Then Guada- city of ninety games this season as well so you say. You know. And people say our people are not. To kind with him instead, of course, he makes mistakes. Peppers made mistakes. Crop has made mistakes soon. Everyone is making me stay the season. That doesn't make lampard either genius or complete. Use this monitor. I think he's also learning authur yesterday. He was very mature I think his team was so mature as well. And I just think that you could see the progress from I was traffic for the first game against united and I saw them yesterday, and there's a year almost a year to the day pretty much. Okay, so competition team. It's incredible all away. The first game of the season was the first game. Zuma Game Yeah. This game yeah. He didn't but didn't play that badly. Not Game Play, but still if you look at the game, even without the resort and look at the way they played yesterday, and Zuma was both games. You see the progress in the way they play in again as we say the dynamic, the chew the. The maturity you know he's great and I think they deserve credit for dot. Going to the final. Hour to leave this question given the way we Leon has played a scenario. Say. Gardo you say yeah, you said things great years, but we move on, and if you go inside Hubbard, which you you, you might be able to. It makes even less sense to keep William you still on this thing other. No, I'm just saying like if the happens, I, don't I oh, no people have talked about a Harvard so much. I get a little suspicious because it's a scene. People talking over obviously coming from his KYW, says decided to leave the club Chelsea favorites and I just weird that they say this show explicitly. Remember the situation or the team of earner situation? It was all quiet quiet while. I agree here it's like. He's talking to. It's almost like he's trying to coax people out. They were talking one hundred million. They're like wow, you know who team. Yeah! I don't look if you can get if you can get Harvard's at the right price by homes. But I. Don't think you should be a priority for Chelsea I. Don't think he is a priority for Chelsea I. Think just like a the price keeps dropping. Sure we'll get them. We'll raise money elsewhere. So would you give a new two billion like a one press one for example? No, no, no, no, because you need to. You need to find out who can play new can't play, and you look at Callan Hudson Doi which everybody seems to forgotten, but eighteen months ago. It's like. He. Thinks. He's had about injury. Let's find out what he can do. Well listen you can do. Let's find out. Yesterday. And Zia obviously know, either so I think what the season is is already very goods and the patient. Next season with the new arrivals is just like wow, big squad. Be pressured to come with an awesome big call. The cell. Biggest. Jaws enough united. Let's talk. Syria are because giving ventures dropping points left right and center. There was still the possibility that if Iran, yeah or Yeah No, it didn't happen. Inter tell to by by roll into once again, taking the lead failing to shut to to see it through. I don't know I saw. It, you didn't play well again. and it's not just getting ability to keep the lead. In some ways. This all goes by the wayside because I'm Tanya conybeare afterwards. We got angry KOMMT again. This time he's going on about about the schedule, Stevens points. Going to point about what about having less rests early playing like I mean. He went too far on. They want us to fail and they always against The sniper face. He's never said when he was a you've. Yeah, but that's all right. Yeah I to me. You know what I get politically why you would say I mean we're trying to sum up what he said, but basically he's unhappy because he feels that they have to play every three days, which which everybody does, it's a compressed schedule. You WanNa. Get things on television. But he complains the fact that they always play it and I you know. Games kickoff at nine forty five local time, and then they get back at four o'clock in the morning, and then the next day all they can do a warm and then the day after that they've got to prepare for the. So on and these aren't conditions in which to work. I part of me says. There's a global pandemic having gone back and looked through. Who Plays I later you this? But I also feel dude. If you haven't dropped these stupid points along the way, you might be in a conversation. The title, the title win lose a romance and the night they lost. The against Bologna finds one up with a penalty to come and team managed to lost a game with just half an hour to go to the game, so you're right. He's made a mistake along the way I. I'm not really sure what Room Lulu Kacoos on the bench against Roma off to say as good as Alexis says she was tired. He coming back from injuries. Come on. This is those crunch games where you can go back oppression new surely pull your best striker on June and. Then bring out either Lautaro. Alexis who has been great and probably deserves to start Ben Slows Darrow and bring him on for half an hour. ANTACTICA cough. Up I didn't get. I my issue with this is. Look. There's a long history and elsewhere about saying things for a trading the siege mentality. But you say that you say these things if they're calculated and we know for example, just Marino historic. Not The only one. In, the past passes onto to, but you say when. You can still influence something when there's something. At this point because nothing, it just sounds like you whining. It sounds like you coming up with sour grapes. You really think that they made the calendar to try to favor. You vent when the conversation was all about lots. Covering his on the failure. Right, it's also it's also she's. Marino does as well you deflect the attention on what you did. Your choices, your tactics. You know play Brazil, vh. In position and got behind him I'm I'm not so sure. And then that's where of deflecting all onto the referee, because y'all go out. and. Probably was a foul on before the first room I got on I was actually. Let's talk about for the foul on the caller over cotto. I'm basically bows into barges into him, and then off that they score also because was it. On, the goal line doesn't show his feet out. I looked at it, and you know this situation with Vr flagger through the referee, the referee again and decided not to go and and disallowed the goal. He decided it was obvious mistake. We can go back under a magnifying Lens and look at all these situations. I? Don't have a problem with that. Not being called the foul. No me, neither did. This is not something that happens all season. There was when united play. Liverpool our trumpet and run one. The first good came from a very similar move, and also the at the march it all the way up the patient score and Still Dominates. This isn't going to make thing, but I just think you're going to give to pass on this one. You're angry. You let it all out. The beast came out. County also did make the point that this was a good season for entered Europe elite of course still out there. Are you on board with that I? Think so I, think so I. Think I've seen them enough this season. To be able to say is an improvement compared to last year. The Hebrew positive things and yeah, okay. If you hire contain your, so no, there's a that another side of things going the way he wants all when disappointment and then he will shout any. We angry as we've seen quite a lot since the restart, but that cannot. Hide the feige think the much better team than they were before he arrived at some of the signings of thought, really well, Lukaku. I and that potentially. If you build on this next season, you could be even more competitive I hate bringing up the word culture, because it's all kind of like pie in the sky, and you can use it both ways, but I think this he has changed the culture of the team to to to some degree, maybe the culture of the club. I'd had stolen stony. Of course. Who's now you know a legitimate starter, still growing so young The downsides. He has an integrated Erickson. I think. He's gone to the veterans a little too often bringing in Moses Yang short term situation. There's still a lot of work to do front office, but you're right Lukaku been shining success lout has improved the point that he's now sellable asset or you keep him and you've got you. There's no question that progress has been made yet. I still think they're going to be slightly hamstrung. Financially, going forward Nainggolan Peres. Search these goes from the past and it said so. I think he's still going to have to do a lot of work on the training ground, and he has to sort out Erickson. But. For, the first season I think it's a solid B., B. Plus yeah, especially, if you think about the injuries, some key points. Sense being the biggest one maybe. You think that. It could have been even better I to you. The plan wasn't to play every single. Off. Season for him. That's what we're giving him to see. All right, enough and his anger. Let's get some positivity. Go with some quick hit says good enough, so they'd be liberal, but I wasn't really impressed by then they go, and they beat city and city who were motivated and strong. This feels like a different arsenal team. You're right I mean you'll be saying you were know impressive. Of course they had to do every four and five goals hundred come on, yeah, but how many? Scenes. Yes, they might expect upset. Those teams play well. They may very well against city. They didn't play that well. In my opinion, just no, they exploded this much stakes. This was much better against a team that. especially in the first half was was. Let's be honest didn't have much to them. I thought they are. They weren't bad in the second half city or single. Studying move to more centrally. The lack of idea, the two full box still good enough for me, Walker Mindy in that case but but yeah, awesome with great the game plan they stuck to. It could ask or more goals. There's obviously the physics that I thought he weren't. I felt like for this game. He, said all right, catch soccer, right, and let's go with the big boys here. That was that was right. I mean I. Again. I'm going to be biased because like I. I love Lozada and French and he's my friend and links. But again like this, it shows one. How good is that I have and maybe people might not have seen him because he's involved in the goal by the second. Assist the the the Obama young goal, but he he's hold. The play was fantastic. Don't they can receive the pressure and not lose even if sometimes it's a bit like. A limit he's not. It doesn't lose. It is so beneficial to the team so valuable to the team. You wouldn't want to celebrate a play like this because you won't find another one like him through so our. No, no, no, but you know this just each other so well Obama on could not do the work like I said doors with these back to you. Husky body can't hold the ball up like the is. She's not as good technicalities, no as good, but he's got different assets I think they played. There were so good I I like the fact that we're starting to see multifaceted arsenal so arsenal that can go and play a game like this, which is just parking the box? No, it's a lot more. Eighteen passes every. From your own six yard box, so yeah hope had yeah. Hope ahead, but then you. Better players of course, but I think that was so much. Positive engagement might lose the final and finished off are. Saying, that doesn't take away some of the good thing. They've done since Atara Lendus. Speaking of city we and in particular mock Ogden, have about the need for central defenders. Every gaseous thought it again, keeping Tom Indian stones on the bench. PEP supposedly loves them. Easy the answer, gove. No, I don't I. Don't think so I think. I think there's almost smacks of lake. Praising this guide to high heaven you know depending on. He's so smart. He says smart. He's smart. He's not bad on the ball central defender. But You know. I don't know that he has the muscle or the quick. To sign another quickness I. Mean you compare him to Laporte? Right? That's a standard. You want another laporte, so I think somebody. Maybe who you think will develop. But no, they obviously still need. They still need to defenders and I think. It was indicative that in this team were in this game. He played her strongest team because this is. Primarily doesn't matter for them. to stage obviously right. It's the FA Cup win. Win More Silverware, and then the Champions League. You know, so you can go. Your little trouble. You've one casts win the FA. Cup Win The championship. And you start this guy I think he's as much as a message of what regarding holds stones Indian yet, but then you cost you a second one, not him on his own, because many covers among Garcia is four on the second goal, so you know playing him ahead of funding. For example, it was on the bench all even with Indian stones. Clearly cost you cashew in that game, so you don't want that. You write you pay your strongest eleven, and then you put that guy. World is visiting. Now as we boldly predicted on the last show Jewels Realm Ajay became champions of Lolita on Thursday, and at the weekend they do chew with an ass jewels. They were devastating after the restart. What did you do right I? Know you know you your little thirty seconds to praise. Crazy Zoo. Yeah because I think a lot of credit he. He. CAME BACK in March two, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety, said winning the. Falling season will be the priority more than anything else. Any delivered and I think he deserves a lot of credit for he made this team. Very resilient very good defensively, which is probably the best. Remedied side. We've had defensively in thirty years or twenty five years amazing when you can do in verandahs fit and Ronald says focused. Of course, it's not. It's not rocket science that they weren't like this before they went on these before they were fought to leaky, and and even not well organized think fellow. Mendiola back made a big difference defensively compared to Marcelo. And also, Tibur, courtois, who's back to really really he's best level, and he's been outstanding or season. No, just since he's had to cope with a ton of injuries, so I don't very deep team, but you're GONNA have deep team, but you still have. Players were better than other ones and a lot of the good ones got injured He dealt with the bail and Hamas situation. which you know is still problematic and a distraction, and even Madrid. You know maybe head by the break and you know the the lockdown staff. I merged came back after the break in fobbing fitness. Valverde was one of the findings of the season with that, and then you Karen Bensimon phone carriage. You really going forward so. You know I. It was a very very good season. I think this is of the eleven trophies the one that values the most official. Bustling when five hundred twelve S as low Mris coast to and gives one to seventh PICHICHI and set a new record in terms of assist. If you WANNA be negative, is his lowest goal analogous since two thousand nine with twenty five, but then again you're let the League's assist. We said, sitting in your record with twenty. One and God a seems sticky. Suggest we stick around now I listen to the Champions League is concludes. Yeah, I mean said this last week. It's stupid to let sit and golden now. I, think menzies evolving into a slightly different player as he gets older as he's adjusting to the players around him I. Mean took him a while to figure out that. Hey, look, you don't want and all the way wide. In the scheme The assist total I think is really really impressive I'm less concerned with the goals. I mean he's still half the goddess coding twenty twenty thirteen was something. Is this his greatest season ever as an individual? No, yeah, but he's thirty three years old. Is he the best player in the league I think by a country mile? No, give it to Ben's my season. Come on, give it to so a leads the league in goals and assists, but no Ben's them I was better. The MESSI, this season should be just about the goes in the so you give it just because of goes unless you don't look at what the rest of the team has done behind you, you don't do. What you've own, who has the better supporting cast Rome Madrid. Second. Best Scorer football this season, Ruth Suarez we seventeen okay, fine, second best goalscorer for Madrid. I don't know they've all been injured finance Phil season. But that's my point so kind Bensimon on his own right. You has been great, but he had support of Suarez and grease men, and even to a certain extent. I'm going to leave. Ex. Soviet on twitter better no one. KOREAN! Greater season than. Schools I of the season in. Whatever! I more quick hits, goodness. You've anticipated this evening, but as mentioned, the title is virtually. There's anyway after interest. Draw to and ask you about something else. These rumors linking Duvan Saporta to vent this Surti, million euros plus goalkeeper Muttiah bidding. This makes sense to use. About is twenty nine years old. Hey Tyson I mean I've watched a game against headlights on Saturday afternoon. He's been really good at times. This season in this Colo's of goes on against Borussia, the other night for me, but in that game I was like. For he doesn't want to. He doesn't want to play. Maybe it was too hard. Maybe it was. It was too tired. I don't know, but and then I read those links and those rumors night. It would not make any sense. To put a number on this met. The opinion obviously hasn't played much I, mean he? He didn't play in. Venice and went on loan to General. This is a guy who's been capitalise. He's twenty seven years old he. We thought it was going to be better than what he's not right Mushonga he. He looked like the future. You made a mistake. I think by going to you because then they perform back and all of a sudden. But. He can still turn into serviceable goalkeeper. I think without question when they end up doing this deal if it is thirty million places. I guarantee you. They're going to slop thirty million on the minimum minimum. Yeah, so then. We're talking sixty million for guy for duval twenty nine. Atlanta I bite your hand off by your hand off. especially given. You really have Louis. Mariel exactly so yeah. No, no sense at. mid-on, keep rolling along destroying Bologna. Five one guy. Purity's making a very strong case. And Yeah are they say determined to replace him with Rodney. I so the narrative all along has been rag, Nick, said Ya I will come, but you know I'm going to be the the. Super Director Football Height of recruitment technical director I also want to coach right. Okay vangere style. Ended very well. So writings backside. But. That was kind of another era in football feels like a long season. I think the thinking was right. Let's accommodate them. I think now they're having second. Thoughts argued all along. Isn't cared. Kelly doesn't have an EGO. He's I think it's a weakness and a strength is that he doesn't have an ego. He knows any kind of system if he can work with rang nick and kind of help mediate for year and be like that'd be like. Sidelines, and saying like this is how we wanted to play, I don't think. He's not wedded to assist style of plaque does does Rodney strike you as the kind of guy who who would one that always more the kind of can do all by myself I can do. ABS But at some point Ralph rang. Make has to realize that as much further phenomenal work that he's done. He's not pep Guardiola. He doesn't have the sporting credit the sporting. PEP Guardiola does he can't go and name all his terms and expect not to be some level speak. Italian, either yet does he or maybe just a bit maybe. Even? Help! Also he hasn't managed coached the one year Leipzig in the last four or five years. Issues in the past so I, don't know I think this would be a much better outcome but they have basically when you think innovative group position which they need and yet somehow. They find that they put themselves by their own means. In a bit of an uncomfortable situation. Is Crazy. Yeah, you see what I mean. If if if you keep purely and you said that we keep purely this continuity. And yet no is now. They could change again. Keep y'all. You still need to address the recruitment side because that was. That was the big issue last year, right? Do you want to build something long term and ran. Nick is the guy to do that, but okay, but you see both very good players last summer with no proper. You know also makes them very skipping. And those people are gone now true or on the way out. Another blow for Leicester City easily beaten three nail by Tottenham Hotspur jewels. You can either question Rogers. Whose one just two of nine in all competitions since the restart or praise the motivational counterattacking of just say Marino. The game so I will do both Oh. It's beyond me how West Morgan and I dunno, you have nothing against you, but you thirty six. You can't run anymore. Even in the back three as a sweeper understand how we can start a game like this, so you interest expenditure figures. Let's just add more central defenders no. Yeah, wh-, just play. Ryan Benetton and John Evans as a back four with two kids. fullbacks in say I either I duNno, I mean yesterday was committee of his depth from the be okay again. Hurricane is it be hard for anyone especially how we can form even the back three from Rogers I. Don't get it, he. Is Not even bringing you good results anyways, so I'm not sure. And you did the three even went, so you was dead, so he's not even because the insure we. Didn't get it. Appraised value. Marine yeah, it was really good, and this is the this is. The spurs that we would see next season. Hurricanes said after the game that they worked hard on this and is completely different to put Chino. And is far more pragmatic is don't bother with possession. Don't bother with bill the play just go quickly forward quickly and transition works so well yesterday. There were so good. I mean hurricane is so good every time I seem live and I can do I just I just watch him and only him I don't care what the bullies east just. Magnificent play. I'm completely in November. So with Lucas, and son and I think if you even a better player than Lucas for example, although I like him. You will be even stronger and yes, sometimes against when you can't be the lower block and you face a team with a low blog, a bit like bombers. Ask questions whether you. Can do something different. Maybe you saw Mela. Maybe then you go and get another player who can. Find break the deadlock in those kind of games, but I mean. You know what they're going to be strong. Next Season Spurs I'm telling you that. Y wouldn't be convinced about that, but hey time we'll tell by the way. Did I mention it's only eight days until hurricanes birthday? And who has west, his birthday. I wonder I wonder so when the returns beyond closed doors, we saw a huge amount of aware wins, and all these clever people do conclusions about how home advantage had been wiped out, but studying the Financial Times this weekend shows that the opposite has happened in the per million Syria whom teams are stronger without fans going on all right I'm GonNa say this sample size sample size, sample size sample size. It does my freaking head I know we have to have something to write about the Bundesliga comes back. Nobody else has started, so go look. Teams are winning. What does it mean all the important to the fans? It's nonsense. It's nonsense withdrawing these massive conclusion same. With the five Saab's and stock. Jumping out, saying well, this means that no, we're not aren't very many games, and it's as simple as that you obviously still have some level of home field advantage because you're not traveling halfway around the country. You know the pitch you know the dressing room I just urge people to not draw massive conclusion on tiny sample size. It's common. Put a microphone in front of a manager next BRO and ask him like Whoa. You know three away wins. What does that mean Oh my God. I hate this hate this freaking psychological pseudoscience nonsense. There was another one about your cotton red cards for away teams wasn't that was lower now than before against small small small sample, but the maybe the fact that there's no fun support of pressure on the ref means that he's more lenient with the awaiting maybe. More logical, but you know what who knows. Let's apply some science to it rather than just talking rear end based on tiny sample. Having nearly conquered the world. Flamengo's Georgia Zeus is back in Europe. Is this where we find out? If he really is a genius or just a guy who a superclub in Rio, you A. It's quite interesting. I think if to see next year. Why will do with Benfica Benfica Team and club in are designed Bruno large after looking so clear to win? To win the League, and they didn't and then Portal Cam back. They've got good young generation coming through, but they still need a law enforcement I think especially in the four positions where. The lost their Yasunori those people who used to call. Lows of Gore's don't have really striker so. For him to go back there. He must feel like okay because he was as you said in a good. Place in Flamingo with very strong squads, maybe the best squad in South America they don't. Think by large margins. Plan then. Maybe thought. Yeah, maybe you're right. Maybe it was too easy. Flamingo in any wanted a bit of a challenge Benthic Sony you're you're managing for mango? You're winning everything I just wonder. Why don't you just stay there? Good. Yeah Yeah! It's probably a good. Obviously. You're not going to get a big job. A Big Club in the big five at this stage because of what's happened before. I don't know yeah interesting. Lamelo very rarely spoke in public during his time, a Chelsea or Monaco when it was the first black technical director a major European club, he gave a long interview this weekend, though to the gods, and then talked about race in perception Gab. You knew him well, you thoughts. So. I think I'm rain saying that I mean I might be forgetting somebody, but I think apart from Eric Abba dial you know sort of heavyweight clubs. There's not being another block director of football. Maybe maybe pop juifs, at Marseille, Klay a PSG O. and clever. Yeah, that ended wow! I. I mean the remarkable thing to me about Emenalo and remember kind been nearly ten years since since he was there. He met a crap that he had to put up and I think some of it. I. Probably had to do with with race. But he had a whole bunch of other things stacked against them the fact that he's Nigerian he'd never played. He never played in England. He's college educated. which you know, let's face it the the punditocracy here. They they don't always like that. All these he was you know. He played in a World Cup for Nigeria, but he was never superstar footballer. Nobody'd ever even been nobody had ever really heard of. A footballer all these things wrapped into one I. Think made the job harder for them and yet if you go back, if you look at the development of Chelsea's Youth Academy over the years, which obviously you can go and pick the players, but he put conditions in place where they could, they could have that, and now you see what it is with all the kids you've seen today plus of course, declan rice, adding catcher also former Chelsea. Guys you look at the fact that they banned the simply the buying and selling people talking about all the low army, and they make too much money off this too stockpiling yeah okay. Everybody wants to talk about talent. Who Says Oh I don't want more talent. He put that in place. He allowed Chelsea just to stay afloat and he did it while working with so many different managers many them with strong personalities, not sure I think. He certainly got a raw deal at the time and I think people look back and say hey, you know. What do we want from a club? More credit than what he is. I mean I'm biased. Here's another guy, but I think. Definitely people should look at that and say this is what I want from a director of football. Did he get something's of course? Because you know, it's always a number game, but. I'm not going to go back to Kevin to Brian mccombe silo which you know. Young listeners might not even know ever played for Chelsea were dumped out the door, not by hand by somebody else, yeah. So I. In terms of the Monaco time now as I understand it. He felt a little bit hamstrung their. Yatzik, Then kind of rewriting history or yeah I, mean I think he did some good things and again others Minnesota. He found in low others them especially someone really really difficult to work with and I think. He's never gonNA. Work Masada multi full power. The minella was there made that he could not have them unless. He unless got out, which eventually did although the? Also got the sack so I think he was ugly at time, and it's a bit of a shame because I agree with you. Knowing people who've worked with Monaco said I think he had more to offer than where you actually offered to Monaco. which I think is shame. Let's talk about Michael Donald. Old Club Monaco they hired former Southampton Spurs and likes the recruitment grew. Paul Mitchell the woundr caned yet, which I guess is very good, but then they also chose Niko Kovac just manager which seems well. Daddy didn't choose Niko Kovac. He chose Niko Kovac Paul. Mitchell score chose Niko Kovac coverage soccer Ben Marino on Saturday morning to the surprise of aloft people including the players. And then we'd have to see. I agree with you right right now. If I look at it, I'm thinking like. This wouldn't have been Michael Ballack. Moreno McCall like Tehran. We would not be my likely. Others are deemed coming back would have been my call so whether it was Paul Mitchell someone has before him. They keep making those crazy mistakes. I read somewhere today that Oh, like. They snubbed Pochettino and it's you know Mitchell wanted to reunite with Pochettino. Now I don't know if you've more information. Is this I understand? Paul Mitchell worked with Patino Southampton. They worked very well together yet. Paul Mitchell then moves to spurs. And then like six months later, Paul like. Out of here, yeah, I don't think they Paul Mitchell inputs on a of respect, but I think those two joined at the hip in any way shape or form whatsoever, despite the picture that certain media like two point yet, in fact I know for a fact. Spurs tried to recruit Paul Mitchell. Before they even thought of Pacino. and. I believe an I was told again on Saturday that. was even in the discussion to take over Marino I think for Mitchell really wanted someone from from Germany, or at least who'd been in the boons- together before because of the idea that he has for the club and for the team and the way he wants them to play again I'm not sure Karachi is the right guy for that. You know if you told me okay you go and get. Rosa Graffman, you know. But. You know this guy's GonNa okay. But Kovacs I'm be skeptical right now, but we see. He is arriving today with his brother Robert, and they will. Have a friendly tomorrow on Tuesday, then we see what they do, but. Maybe, he's thinking is Monaco can ditch Leon and joined the Bundesliga. Lead! United are back in the Premier League God. We don't often talk about the lower divisions in the championship, but this is. This is huge, right? It is huge because this fan base by history is primarily club. Shout out to the owner. Donny, but especially big shoutout to ourselves though. There's a reason people love. People love the story behind it. I was very skeptical about whether. Would work in the championship. Okay, just simply because you know look at the conditions and then also walks out on teams and things don't work we it in Marseilles and. I don't know how long it's GonNa last, but it's it's fantastic the work he's done and I think. I think he's really changed minds, and he's changed cultures and think from a neutral perspective you know. If there is a club that can turn the big six big seven. It's United Sixteen years. They've been waiting to go back credible. Liverpool thirty years to win the title again. He'd sixteen years to go back to the permanence crisis. Now. We've talked about this before, but I. Never Tire of celebrating the good guys, the warriors of the Light Santi Cathode has left Vietnam after an astonishing comeback jewels. Help me celebrate them. Tell me what's next. What it seems that Qatar might be next. I was hoping and dreaming. Maybe they would come back to awesome I. Think he had a child with me? About it maybe. But it looks like he could go to to Qatar with. in China steam. Maybe get one. Come back to Barcelona. Even, if you just for one year. Ticket money bring the family over there and enjoy football for one season. I'm disappointed after say he's not staying in Alita Villareal. But it was a wonderful story, anyway the way that for more than two years and then play football that he thought he could not even walk again. After all this issue with his Achilles and his full, and all those injuries, and yet after what ten surgeries as we say, two years, it took some skin of his arm to put his full defied that one. It was just be able to play again for even even just keeping the gallon something he could not do at some point, but then play Lalita in that level. Go back to the national team and he would have gone to euros. Had the US happen I? Don't think he would go unfortunately next next. We never know and what? I think he was involving twenty five goals in league between the goes. The assist is incredible. Obsolete Incredible Fairytale Miracle Cooler wherever you want. And spink, such a nice guy. That's the thing for people who don't know any. Sweet US mind you could ever meet and he deserves all. The great things that happen to him in the last year or so especially after the nightmare for so many months before. When did what would have happened if interest somehow magically gotten him instead of Ericsson. God like if they feel like. Halo, BRAS H. You need an alternative. You can't play every game. What if Casale just comes over part-time in Milan and Can't get Tonelli. I duNNo. Emery. We'd be the manager next season. replacing. Who didn't do a good job of this did much better after the. The break. Bombing I don't know if you've read our area. Really you go like emery. Strong club that's behind you and all the guy has to do with coach and not speak not. then. I'm we can do a job for you right? Sorry we see. I'm Marie. One of his former club finish with the defeat, the severe, another one of his former club, another one of these FA and welcome to particular. Qualifying for championship next and another campaign of turmoil, which seems to follow him everywhere, and these our with three different managers, anger owner petroleum reports that everybody is for Sale Gab. Will ever be sets on. Woman was going on I. Mean you've got? Supporters from very high expectations, but you also have a club that. I'm sorry he's been turned into a receptacle. Of Agents of people cutting deals for reasons that people don't know. The Peter obviously inherited an enormous amount of debt. I, it's a shame. It's a shame because you know I'll tell you what if there is a club that can turn. The big to in just three or four or five, you know eight is Valencia Valencia yet? But it's either I think are should be the third biggest club in Spain, alongside the Madrid and the fact that they're not is also because of repeated mistakes that keep getting made and getting players for. short-termist reasons I don't know I. Don't know what the deal is I. Do know that this guy. Peter Lim. Can Get your money out and the club over either either be committed. Properly hire some people. Why not? Why does he do I? Don't I don't know I. Don't know he's. He's a real estate guy. He's whatever he must have something in mind. It's not possible like other why why? Why bother. On a lighter note, we have new champions in Turkey and it's not one of the usual suspects. here. What did you pronounce that? Well done well done practice. Didn't you know no? I've been following them a long time because they have few places that you would know them buffer employees. Cliches. And so. They should if you like your football and they're very young club as they were on reform in these the way we know them, nine hundred fourteen. Had Big backup from Mr. Bohannon and government, but anyway there won't. It can really close last season and then bottled up in the last two games of the season this year. They've been very consistent and although the probably benefited from the I gotTA, Sarah. She does Herat very average seasons, yes. Can Brewing the manager did a really good job. Nothing fancy nothing special, just being very solid. Fish Rubio is does well by the way I mean incredible. Rabin by your there, too. He was dead, but then left resolve this season, so yeah, incredible really really. Laurie, so people who don't know people who might be wondering why a lot of. Very famous players on big contracts, and in Turkey, it's because the tax rate in Turkey for foreign. Varies. thinking. Closer to fifteen percent, yeah! Yeah so. Eight. Very viable for that and. I said so good tale. It is and find that eagle-eyed viewers something unusual about referee John Most boots doing the game between Ashland city gap. Okay, so, how did John Moss? Sorry. Howard is Moss. I, say fifty something now I think he's in his mid forties. Fifteen. weirs is nick they. On his boots, he wears personalized boots. Why which is nicknamed. On why? Does, he does he does. He believes a football player I apparently is a football player. Apparently be replayed deplace with decent standard recreationally. I I just think. Given. What's going on right now? With premier? League referees as as a group. I'm the are some as a group. Yet given the season. They've given the fact that they send zero referees to the World Cup for example giving the sent all the crap, the PG oil yet the last thing you need more negative attention more people to look at you and make fun of you I'm question you and gearing soon gets angry. By keeping must see focus on employs honestly because I mean i. saw and I was like. W T.F MON-. Why did you do that to yourself? This is the season where you had the Weirdo decision that the against walls you had all the screw up with the VA, intervening nine intervening Blah Blah by the start of the season where they said Oh, no, no on field reviews. We'll just do a different just because you had to Sheffield. United goals struck off when a looked goldline technology's not working. You know I love this crap. How some humility everybody! Take a step back. Focus on your referring and we'll get out of this and. I I feel because this is again. I think Mike. Riley does what he can I think. He's being pushed, pulled pushed and pulled every which way. But this is a season to forget, and and this is part of the like. John Moss can go out there and can wear whatever the hell he wants, right. But to. No I'm sorry. I mean. Your Kid's name on your shoes. If you want your date of birth, the governor podcast name on your shoes. Yes, if you'd like to advertise, we'll get you some. Boots come on. This is the thing. Is because I'm not a foot, fetishists or footwear fetishists like you. I haven't been watching John. Moss's boots ride his career. So I must Gremlin assume that this is but I'm going to say that. This is something new because there's a bunch of Weirdos who sit there and looking at the feet of referee. Throughout Games I Do this now for you to introduce this now at this stage of the season after the kind season of had fall man. I know. All right I'm not. John Moss and You're not one of the worst ones. Yeah, this is not not. It's not Let's go back and do all again on Thursday when they could have even more clarity about who's going to win. The which of course is really the last remaining championship up for up for grabs. Till then. What!

15. VfB Stuttgart is on a roll! Is Bayern in crisis mode?

"Hello everyone welcome back to the ninety. Plus time podcasts. It's rob happy Monday. And almost as in the states Adjusted your clocks locks clocks back this weekend so you know today you may either feel a little bit more rested than normal. Nobody did we put our clocks back last weekend again here in Europe and for me it doesn't matter the clocks forward or backwards that first week. Afterwards I always feel Kinda funky even though you know in the fall you get the extra hours sleep leaper. Whatever still always feels kind of weird for that first week but now you know I'm used to it being dark at four o'clock in the afternoon now Things Good Hope. Everybody had a good weekend. I did actually went to a wedding this weekend. Had Lot of fun didn't get to watch too much football this weekend. I did get to see the stupid game though. And that's what I'm going to start with so Last episode talking about how to guard got beat by Hamburg. It was sixty two. They're playing in Hamburg. And that game was last Saturday and Stu Guard had to come right back complete again on Tuesday in the dough chapel so after that embarrassing defeat. I didn't think that they were going to be able to do too much against Hamburg Berg but to my surprise they were able to win on the road to one. endorse The game was really weird. Stu got a penalty in the second minute and then they didn't score again until the game went into extra time. They scored in the hundred and thirteenth minute to win it and let me tell you that lasts slake I mean I guess it was like ten to eleven minutes after they scored was probably the most stressful. I've been You Know Cigar does not. Do I do too well in the DOJ bucolic last three or four years This is the farthest they've progressed in a while They're actually now in the round of sixteen which is good their next opponent that we playing on the road. How do we play against buyer liver Kuzin Hoping that game would be a home game but it didn't work out that that way They'll play that game against them In the first week of February so we got a while until then and they made it to the to the round of sixteen which is crazy but Festival were to the next match. They had on Saturday here in St Guard. They were hosting Dinamo. Zagreb Rib That game I mean scarves playing really well. They had a lot of possession. They seemed like they were constantly moving. Forward the ball They ended up winning three. Two one. one of those goals was an own-goal but you know whatever goals goal I'll take the win and they're pretty happy has just two wins in a row. I mean not in all competitions pocar in the Bundesliga so like I said I will take it after that that embarrassing loss to Hamburg I mean I was. I just didn't think that Get any worse than that Hopefully things just work out a little bit better. Hopefully they can figure out whatever the hell it was that was wrong with them and continue to build on these last two matches. These lasted wins Next game that we play in on Saturday on the road playing against Austin a book We'll see how that goes right. Annouced guarded sitting in third place in the Second Bundesliga. That's that promotion playoffs spot. They're two points behind Hamburg. WHO's in I and two points behind Armenia? Bielfeld who's in second but they're four points clear of as good burger our who's in fourth place with nineteen points so so Sitting pretty good. I'm hoping you know before Christmas that we back in first place We'll see what happens. Take it one game at a time. Just enjoying these last two victories you know. Hopefully they do well on Saturday to but like I always say we'll see what happens. So the big story this weekend here. In Germany was about by Munich. It's probably one of the worst weekends by in his head in a while If you were on twitter Seeing what their fans are writing you would think that they were really close to being relegated but I they had a terrible terrible match. They lost five to one one. There are on the road playing against Eintracht Frankfurt I've already mentioned on this podcast quite a few times that their coach Niko Kovac was on the hot seat now. Prior to this weekend I mean you know keep on Byron won the league last last year And if you add in this match that they just loss granted was five to one and they were playing with ten men for the majority of the match. Drumbeat Tang got early. Red Card thing was in the ninth or tenth minute but up until the end of that game they still had only lost. Two matches watches all season out of ten games. They've only lost to You know they're saying how the German press I saw the paper on on Sunday Saying that you know Byron is just doing tragically I can't really my my translation of the word word up It translates loosely to like greased but it can also mean if something is like going down a plane But like I said in the Bundesliga they lost two matches all season out of ten games. Keep mind that they've won. All of their notable cal matches choose as well as all their Champions League matches but last night there manager Nico. Batch was fired now. I understand Dan here. Buying is expected to be the best team in in Germany. They strive to be the best team in Europe They have only lost. Two Games like mentioned L. season. They're sitting right now in fourth place which nobody's used to seeing especially you know seeing Moon Gladbach still sitting on top of the table which is which is weird but I don't know it just seems like they don't know they just they couldn't deal. I mean granted a five one losses is bad but You know this coming from a guy whose team lost sixty two last weekend but it is bad for Byron. They're playing on the road. They were down to ten men. It's not like it. was you know they got beat. You know straight up five to one But now they're they're managers gone they. You have a match on Wednesday in the Champions League Olympia Coz In Greece so I I don't know we'll see how that goes and then this coming weekend they are playing in what some people call their classic or The German big rivalry like the classical in Spain between Barcelona and Real Madrid but it's Byron Against Busey Dorman it's in Byron I don't know why would you sack your manager right before one of the biggest matches of the season. I don't know that to me that lasts that last loss for them was kind of fluke. Ish Bolton. I mean it was an obvious you know he had to be sent off because of what happened and But then you know that puts your team to a really bad position and the manager ends up paying the price for it so So yeah on on Wednesday they can potentially secure moving into the The knockout stages of the Champions League because right now they haven't lost any matches sit sitting on nine points in the Champions League. They win one more The put them at twelve BA guarantee to make it to the knockout stages. And then three days later you got had a play granted. They're playing at home. which playing Bruce Dorfman right now? WHO's sitting in second place and keep in mind? Byron is only four points out of first place right now. They're only one point behind Dortmund and their their level on points with third-placed are sick and Fribourg Vyborg who's in fifth and then Chalco. WHO's six so I mean right? Now they're hans-peter flick I don't know there's been a lot of names in floating around about who's going to replace Koch Obviously one of the first names because he's constantly lurking around Europe Josie Marino. I personally would not want to see him. Playing in the Bundesliga. I don't like the style of football that he uses Z.. He's a little too defensive. You know he's loves apart the bus You know to me. It seems like he plays for draws was and you know he only attempts to score when you know it's convenient I don't know I just don't like that style. It's not really like a free flowing style of football. But I mean he's been successful with it but I don't think that Byron fans would be satisfied with that type of that style of play. I mean I could be wrong but it I just me personally. I don't WanNa see Josie Marino in the in the Bundesliga But you know he's all over the media was there's joking a couple of weeks ago saying he's been practicing German this before coed got Fired but of course. He's been in the hot seat. There's like names like arson banger. The former arsenal manager. He's been out of a job now. I think this is the second year Yeah I mean he already speaks German. which would be good But I also I don't know I mean I guess he would be a good fit and I'd rather see him much more than Marino but there's a reason why fans in At Arsenal we're saying for the longest time they wanted him to be gone And then there's Allegra who this you know. This is not coaching I don't know if he speaks German or not at honestly. I don't really think that matters too much but I mean he's a good coach but I don't know I'm sure there's some other names that are being thrown around through. Some people are probably talking about. Put Your Tino leaving Tottenham to come to buyer and I'm sure I'm sure there's some other names that are out there. But those are the big three that that I've been reading and seeing and So we'll see binary now they're going to eat something I just read on the news that Lynn dose key is going to have groin surgery but apparently he's not going to miss any games which is weird because like I said. They have a game on Wednesday in the Champions League in Greece So we'll see what happens with that I don't know I still. I predicted that Byron was GonNa win the still think they're gonNA win the league even though right now. They're they're sitting in fourth place. Still a lot of games left to play twenty. Four Games in the Bundesliga Yeah I don't no I just to me seems like they just They just jumped the gun fired him a little too soon. I I don't believe in firing coaches like halfway through the season unless there's some like gross misconduct. That happens to the coach. I think you know managers and you'd be given a little bit more time This was only Quebec. His second year at Byron again he won the league last year But I don't know I mean this is I think the first game they played since Nicholas Soula got hurt. I could be wrong. Maybe they played into the typical but I mentioned on either last podcast. The podcast before about drum Tang and him getting back into the squad after not being selected a lot this season. And what does he do he nine minutes he gets himself thrown out of a game and team gives up a bunch of goals. And the next you know the manager sacked act so but it'll never be the players fault it's always the managers that are that are gone I don't know the the brass it Biron They've been trying to get rid of bullet Tang. Maybe this now will give them even more of a reason to you. Try to sell him in January or to just let them go in the in the summer market. But I don't know we'll see but that's that's what's going on right now With Byron I really. Don't you know not a Byron Fan. I was a steeler fan so I kinda hate talking about Biron but this was the big news that was going on in Germany and I can't lie. Yeah I'll get a little bit of joy out of there. Being a little bit of dysfunction in the team is supposed to be the best team in Germany so I don't know but hopefully they get it together. You know these still like watching them play their team and But it is good for the Poona sleep right now. They're kind of struggling. And maybe somebody else will be able to step up Um Hum so at the end of last season super played in the relegation play-off against a Union Berlin or is the German say Berlin And I'm Stewart over two legs. They they lost to Union Berlin Berlin got promoted and for the first time in the Bundesliga. You know the first one is there. Were two teams from Berlin playing Obviously you're going to have a Berlin Darby got hurt. The Berlin and Union Berlin Hertha Berlin club that was You know when the city was divided played in West Berlin and Union Berlin played in East Berlin so so this is going to be a big deal for the city of Berlin. I know I talked about this like very early on in the first half of the PODCAST And finally We had that game. I know recently the Bundesliga talking about trying to make the game on the on October third. which is German unholiday here? It's the day of German Unity But instead they both clubs couldn't decide or didn't WanNa do that because they thought that you know German. Unity is bigger than than football So instead they decided to have the first one this weekend which is kind of weird because is basically this coming weekend? The ninth of Of November will be the thirtieth anniversary of the fall. All of the Berlin Wall So said of having it you know in the German Unity Day they had actually closer to the anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall and this game was played lead at Unions Stadium and I would not have predicted the way that it went. You know seemed like it was kind of a boring match than the fans I guess decided to start get crazy start throwing flares. There was a really really long stoppage pigeon. The game eventually resumed players. They went off the field for awhile. Came back on and It was decided by penalty not in the eighty seventh minute and Union won it. The first Berlin Darby in the Bundesliga was one by the underdog who last year was playing in the second Bundesliga And now you know the next game will be played obviously after the New Year probably towards the end of the season. I'm thinking like April Ended April and it'll be played in the Olympic Stadium. Which is hurt the Berlin Stadium Idiom and hopefully won't be as wild for the fans will be a little bit more controlled? I guess we'll see how how it is You know stadiums a little bit bigger thing. It'd be harder for people. Evil throw flares lease them on the pitch depending on where they're at. We'll see how the police deal with the the Union Berlin fans You know the too big of an issue. I think there's more excitement about that game than anything in wanting to represent like you know their side of the city For the first time you know in the top flight of German football but The the game lived up to everything that the expected it to be. I just didn't expect for Union Berlin to win it now. We get to look forward to that. Union Berlin is actually doing better than I expected them to do I know that I said that they were probably GonNa be one of the teams that we're going to get relegated at the end of the season but right now they're sitting in fourteenth place so the two spots out of the relegation zone and you know they got mites expert in Cologne and Paderborn all behind them didn't Spec to see clone there but whatever I I think that union Berlin probably will still be in the Bundesliga at the end of the season. Their only three spots behind the Berlin team But like I said a lot of games seems to play That will be four to that next match between them like I said it'll be probably the end of April or maybe the beginning of April Schedule Skit Aleph are out but yeah the game was was pretty good for the first one. I Berlin Darby. Hopefully first of many So we got the Champions League back this week. After after like a two week break Some pretty decent games Tomorrow see we got Liverpool hosting Jank not believe hosting Salzburg Barcelona hosting Slavia Prague Brusett Dortmund Hosting Inter Milan. Zenit Saint Petersburg a hosting rb. Leipzig should be a decent game. especially you know coming off. What Tim O.? Verner was able to this weekend. He had a hat trick for goals and then he also contributed three assists. I mean the final score was eight. Zero RB Leipzig Against Mites. But you know humming after an impressive performance and I don't think that even though he just signed a long term deal I don't think team over is GONNA end up being in Leipzig next season. I think he's GonNa go to England let's see them Leone hosting Benfica Chelsea hosting I X and Valencia hosting Lille and then for Wednesday day we got PS g hosting club. Brugge Bruges say Real Madrid hosting galatassary Sarai I mentioned earlier Byron Hosting Olympiakos Red Star Belgrade hosting Tottenham Atlanta hosting hosting Manchester City Dinamo. Zagreb hosting charge of Netscape. Lokomotiv Moscow hosting you ventas. And I don't know why but it always seems like Rinaldo goes to Russia when it's cold during the Champions League it always seems like that Hopefully you've been just doesn't arrested. We saw what happened when they attempted to arrest him last week. And then finally we got by Labor Kuzin hosting Athletico Madrid so. There's a decent amount of games and there's some teams that will probably be able to lock up advancing to the knockout stages Like psg they're sitting on top of their groups. They win one more They're they're lock for moving on Same thing with Byron mentioned earlier here Same Thing Manchester City. They've won all three games. They win one more to a point. You'RE GONNA move on Event and Athletico Geico Madrid. They're in the same group. They both have seven points. So it's GONNA they're probably have to play the fifth match day to determine that same thing with group E got not believe with seven Liverpool with six and then southbound with three so it's GonNa take a few more games to determine that group F also. You Got Barcelona sitting on top with seven Inter Milan in second with four points. In also Bruce Dorfman before points points that may not be decided until the last matchday a group G same thing you got. All four teams only separated by three points is with Leipzig on top with six Benfica. In fourth with three and then Zenit Saint Petersburg and Leone both have four points Finally Group H he got Chelsea and exiting on top with six points. Each and then Valencia in third with four in Lille with one point So anything can happen in some of those groups but like I mentioned. PS G Biron Man City they win their next one in there. Definitely moving on and and I don't think anybody expects them to not move on. They're by far the some of the strongest teams in the competition. They got they got some pretty week. Group draws for them Yet I mean man cities with Dinamo Zagreb shocked hardy nets out allowed to and then Biron I I mean they do have Tottenham in there but they absolutely destroyed Tottenham when they played against him and then Red Star Belgrade and Olympia Coz and then PSG see they have Real Madrid there but it's not the Real Madrid of past so and then it got cold brew Gung Tassara so those are some pretty easy draws and I still see I don't actually now. I can't even tell you I think is GonNa win the champions the guy I think it'll be you ventas maybe but I don't know a lot can happen between now now and now in June now in May and I don't know we'll see what happens. Still a lot of players could move during the transfer window which will open in less than two months which is kind of crazy Plus you know yeah. I don't know this. There's crystals so much that could possibly happen between now and the end of the Champions League season two. We'll see keep an eye on it. Parts of this episode is going to be shorter than normal Let's because next week is going to be by far the longest episode that ever courted Because we're going to be a lot going on with that being said the analysts cup final is set It will take place on November tenth. And it'll be the Seattle sounders against Toronto. FC Two teams that nobody expected to make it to the final. I think everybody was kind of hoping that it'd be Elliot C versus NYC AFC They just couldn't couldn't get it done so I mean this is still going to be a great final sounders against Toronto We'll see if I'm GONNA and stay up or get up to watch that Six hour time difference so or no corrections sorry sorry they're playing and thought it was in DC for some strange reason. They're actually playing in Seattle. So that's nine hour time difference than from where I'm at now. So yeah we'll see maybe I might just have to watch the the recording Bul seat but like I said next week's episode is going to be the the longest I've ever recorded Probably the biggest show that I've done UNCOVERING MLS Champions League Europa League the top five five leagues and everything else. That's going on so with that being said I'm going to the show and thank you guys for listening. Thanks thanks for all

Gab and Juls: Are Man United Officially Back?

"It. Well it's Thursday which means it's the Goblin Jewish. Oh, hello, Joel Gob. We got. A lot of thing was a games coming every day. Just storylines everywhere this week. And Athletico Madrid the Big One, but you know what that was on Tuesday night, which feels like a ago, so we're going to try to look forward. We're GONNA talk about that. We're GONNA talk about we've got. We're GONNA. Talk about favorite Norwegian AB second favourite, maybe second John August your of becoming on because on Saturday. It's the Big German Cup final my mind Peter boss, taking on the mighty Bavarian football works and We're GONNA start with Manchester United. because. Here's the thing. It's not that they'd beat Brighton. Actually. Z. Look, good POGBA and Bruno together. Yeah, it looks good, and then you've got. This speedsters up front and I get the sense of fragility. Can it lasts but They're right there. Neck and neck with wolves in fifth place. You're right. I think he's looking very good for them and between fifty nine or competition, if you before the pandemic and after the pandemic. Is if it is like they found the right formula in terms of balancing the team, and that four three one works really well defensively I. Think they still. Think you can get an upgrade on Lindelof the problem and the sinus another a better center back in the summer. You might get an upgrade on on look, so I left by Google Brennan Williamsburg again maybe a position that you can look. In the summer, but the other positions I mean even much seems to. Be Reborn I mean obviously that pass on the third goal is absolutely fantastic, but in terms of why just has to do and again. And so you might be different in in tough games against better players, but I thought he was disciplined three covid variable Pogba, he was just thus screen for the buck for just a pure holding me for the road where you get the board, and you pass it to the ones we can create, and then we get down to Bruno and POGBA. Who? Can create so much and I. Think the difference for me with plug buys that. Why is he so happy and wise? Even thinking about staying is because suddenly the burden being the creative player the creative. She's not just on him. You've got Bruno Fernandez who can do without you've got Marcus Rashford. You can't do that. You've to fullbacks and we still one beside car won't. Tell me Sokha and. Luke Shaw as A. Part of the creative burden. No! There will never be able to cross the border by especially when besides. Like. Kandahar Adani, Elvis however just by taking your position on the pitch. Hugest. You become another option, even if they don't give you the ball and you know one beside cal was not really involved in any of the goals, but just him being on the pitch for the position. This is someone who you need to keep an eye on, and then that creates more space for other players. I just think that right now and the again. In my no Lassen they will have tough again and do shift united one where they were down to ten men, the Brighton Game. But I think there's something there growing clearly, and and then you come Mason. Greenwood and Eighteen and he, he plays with so much freedom. Is Remarkable, okay, but the revival predates the return of Papa. Paul, your boy and I love Paul. Was Fifteen Games. In the revival kind of started before he came back yet and obviously you gotTa, Bruno Fernandes lift there. I think pretty evidently. Somebody wrote today that he's the most transformative signing the. United have had since Eric Cantona which. I haven't gone back through all. But you know he certainly had core. What I wonder about though is. When you talk about? Those talking players three, can you? Can you sustain the midfield of POGBA? Fernandez, and the front three. Against a certain quality of opposition. data. That's one question. I think one of the only want to address this summer and. The other question is Rauscher that can see how he gets better. Marcel by the stages in mid career, right, have we seen it for? It's twenty. Paint till he's fifty right thing, he's not a kid. Yeah, yeah, it's not like He. Does he have another level is? You're going to become the player that we you know when they sign them for the enormous amount of money. Is he on that trajectory, or no probably not probably this. This is what he is right. Yeah, he gets you twenty five, the season, these on one, thousand, nine, hundred twenty. I think. Like, so so you would go and sign a better strike. Socio this week said. don't have the I don't know how divine rights to start or believed. It was time game Rashford in Moscow, so you go out and you sign. A better striker. I think I I. Think you have to sign another striker or another front man in the summer? Whichever you want to write, because obviously Rashford complete on forward can also play on the wing. It depends how you use them. I like the idea of having also different options I think. Bruno Fernandes Place. I! Don't think it's written in stone that you have to play with winger. If they end up with more attacking fullback somehow so you can easily switch to to a dime. I wanted to your diamond for. The. But which I think would actually probably benefit even more. because you're talking about overhauling they. Were mentioning earlier. That could be an option. But what I go, but this is. This is also the week in which was reported a all. Yeah, they'd be interested in science show, but spend more than fifty mill or they wouldn't come on. We know that's not true. Well. If you did get Sancho. Hypothetically, what would it look like? You play for grids, so you keep the four three one. You play. I mean again so that versatility that you were mentioning you can play in three or four three with sensual. Winger, you can play in a four three three. We Sancho as a right winger. You can do many things tactically. Fuego Sancho I just think that censure. We'll bring you on. Top of everything is the ability to I've even. Another sort of. Another sort of plan in the sense, Dow. You okay you very good counterattacking. As we saw in the third goal against Brighton, you can have the border law and the position because you go plug by Bruno in your team and. And the enough to control the game, and the are comfortable possession at that point. Give you that, and then if you're choir, who can pass a little bit that and if you've got some show in the games that you may be not as good or you struggling or the opposition is better than you central can make the difference in in one move. He can dribble past. Few People Cross shoots weather, and and that kind of game winner Dot Greenwood might become, and we saw the first goal he takes. Two players scored a greg on his own program. I think central will give you a consistency in that style. Slack Wow. If you are essentially team I think and then strengthen still think at the back. You look very strong. Enough to narrow the gap with Liverpool in city I mean, it would take more than Sancho. Would would take. A center back because. I like Maguire as person, but from what I can tell. But. You know it's not as if he's Beckenbauer so whoever plays alongside him I. Don't think is going to be on a level of the very top people and I don't know that. Now social is not and will probably never be a guru type. Manager let you know he doesn't mean you can't be successful. Structure around him. And I think the left back. Position needs to be addressed. And I also wonder going forward. If Wamba Sokha at right becomes becomes a problem because he's basically, he's a central defender. Playing right back, right, yeah! and I'm wondering if may be longer term. You don't think as you suggested earlier, maybe a back three yet maybe or the semi shoe. Is Hoopla a right wing? You won't be again, but the maybe. Maybe Takimi. Go Yeah. It would have been your answer, yeah! I think. You're right back chill. We'll at left-back back. Three of one Sokha Kula Bali, I was. Right POGBA Matych. Bruno can play on play on the wing or no before one you Bruno. Rashford but there's no room for Sancho then. It's tough matched up. Say. You then then you have so many options and this diversity that you were looking for just to finish where you if you look where they were eighteen months ago, and we've said and we've been very critical of of of Edward, and I don't think we should take any credit for where they are now all. The looking in much better shape is far more. You could be far more mystic about them. Even even we as manager, who criticized as well then the way, Monica. Rush rostered and Pogba your best players. Coming in here that turns things around. All Right Gills I promised and deliver his John August. You're joining because on, Saturday it's the final of. The Cup in Germany Beyer Leverkusen. My Boy Peter Boston yeah against by Munich. Yon So I'm paper. Buyer Levekusen beat. Byron this season right? And so when they played them again towards the end, we thought we might have a final race of ood. Luck and then they go budgets, and then they got. Going to. Be Different in a one off game. Well. Let's hope so I mean for all of us love. German football is sometimes. It's domination off. Munich is massive of course a couple of years ago, my club anthrax with led by Munich. On I. Remember I got a lot of interviews for German. Prayed person. I I. Try Joking to say it's important. Brian Fung for not to underestimate by Munich because they're better than which saying. Ending up! I think. What we can see in in the copies is not only a Cliche, but one game only They will have a chance, but having said that I mean unbelievably impressed, will by Munich of Badu lately the way to building the team at the moment is so so unbelievable, but but still I think Leverkusen will will play on that one game like you said if that beats them before, and they can have a song that the problem this, of course that tradition of I can be the first one who say never who's that they will never. Again Will Champions League this year of course Leverkusen miss out I, mean I was on this culture that has to break and what? What is a better thing to break in a death beppu cal finale. Fewer Peter Bausch and obviously you know you you more handsome and you've got more hair. But how would you approach that game that final to you? Would you play on the counter? Would you try to have of the ball and put them in the pressure and press high ju play cavs. You play giving. FARLAND's has behind. What what would you do and so I'm Barry Mind? You on whatever you say. will no doubt be more sensible than what Peter boss will. When you opposite of anything suggest. Yeah, now I think I think I for a game like this is all about mental parts Israel okay. The the the strategies of course always said self esteem is very very important, but I think that is important to to tell his players that you this. This is the easiest game you would have ceased because by Munich would be the big favors if bit by Munich will win train eleven that well. That was a plan, so so there shouldn't be any pressure on Leverkusen. I and I can only speak for myself. I always feel I played for national team in the Ninety S, and we were always the the guide We would never favorites plane into games on on some games. When we lost, we didn't try to. We too cautious too careful. Then I had a afterwards. Yeah, it's okay to loose spoke. We didn't give it old so fodder putting place. Yes, I will put swollen. Yes, I would put. Up there and so on, and so on so on, so I think they if if they're going to be trying to be cautious and careful be by Munich they will lose anyway, so why don't. You just go for it on CNN. After what you was at yeah, we went for it. We Lost Fair, enough and okay. Is a new season coming on I'm afraid of levels, allowed and go better better deep. At Song Time, Miller will do something. Essays Stan Levin. DOC- will get a goal anyway. So why don't you just try it? Let's talk about the guy who is probably outside of Dortmund and Bavaria. The most exciting player in the Bundesliga kyw Harvard's. He missed their match in the League in fact, I think he'd be suppose games. In the league this season, no conspiracy there. Every young German he will, he's being linked to to Byron. In some ways it's set up for a Disney ending where he single handedly destroys Biron or even just beats Byron carries, Peter Boston victory, and I then announces Oh. Yes I'm joining the evil empire. Yes your member. Some manny many years ago, there was a guy called lot. Amato's who are leaving Bruce. You mentioned Gladbach and there was a decisive penalty shootout was locked I'm apparently missed missed that penalty, and then he went to buy Munich, so he's not always Disney ending. I agree with you, This is a always cup signs. That this time for heroes would be better than that. Could do lessing by could end up getting kayakers. I mean the way they're doing I've been very critical to buy Munich there. There were times that I didn't go anywhere. They were taking players on loan, selling them in like big superstars, and at the end of the day there were people who don't even go into the squad of Real Madrid last Rodriguez R.. Oh, continue coming sold in us in a mess in. In German football, but the way by Munich doing it now i. it's I think it's so impressive on after Roy sonnet. Yes, get KYW, Hodson. Belette bill has hope we take him. Don't as Niko Kovac. Did Coach for for Entre Frankfurt when he when he was there and later late to join them, so that will be a fantastic ending. Yeah, and like all Frankfurt fans. People who dislike Byron what did you do that was brilliant. You sent agent Niko Kovac over to by going. then. Give us somebody for Labor coups, and obviously you know this matches on our air and. On! ESPN casual fans will know Harvard's. GimMe one other. Labor Kuzin player. Who you think could be decisive in this game that people might be less familiar with. Well you always know about the bender twin. Some of you never know who is who one of them is over. Way So, is he. Six Bailey Bailey could be a Jamaican his name Jamaica. S He's been linked to mansion city. He's one of them who can take people on May. Dot is a weakness all Abaya Munich. The unique place to take them on, but Yeah I'd Bailey versus. Davies. Race wins that. Hold! On I think Pavel could be the only eighty weakest link. You could think of thinking that buying team and I think he's someone. Mussa job. Play on that side so on your by left side and his right sites and take on. I think maybe that's where there could be an opening. It's talking about the Byron's lot big signing to wrap this up. I mean big. We knew this was coming. Yeah, question. Do you mean Kouassi from PSG? The young Perje of young. I'm. I'm just. Leroy, signing! He's. How does he injuries? He's weird. Things like remember when he when he missed out. On the welcome. To last second. What is the thinking with by due to buying? I'm assuming they've done their homework and they say you can go back. He's still very young. Is Physical issues aren't there? There's no mental issues. He can be the player he was, and maybe he'll put pressure on neighboring Coleman and create more competition on the wings. Is that the thinking? Do you like this deal? First of all I liked. Is there like Roy? Sonya, I was there at them at the Charity Shield Charter, to shield when you when you go to enjoy felt very sorry for him at that time was a better linked to buy a music as well, but I think we'll buy is doing at the moment you start, you know. Lot of these big clubs is an issue. Where do you get your players? What? Where is your natural market on on buying okay by? David define their market that they can't get the biggest stars I mean they they will probably go to England, and we go to vendors or bustle on real, Madrid other at talking about now, the biggest biggest darst's but. will by a need to be good, and they've been very successful without generations. Is that the take the best players on? The Best German play is there's gotta be a feeling that they doesn't natural way for me to go to to buy. And we just hard for English fans to understand because you will never see. Amongst is united to play going to Liverpool or visa versa, but in in Germany that is more normally on. So I like this way of germs. For Germans to Poe Clubs? That is not good for them, because then then by municipal, keep winning the league. Okay, but we can't. We can't make via Munich Week. We need to break the other team stronger I. Don't think you can can criticise by to try to get the best players I. think that's what they're doing now. They they see. We have to get new bill. Bill I mean there's a lot of talk about him. Annoyed will say forever, but still it's the right move that they need to have the next great German. Goalkeeper at the moment that they think does Nubile, and then it has to go Royce on there. They have to go for kyw hearts on the. They had to be in the market for the team, Obana, although. Muhammad is said that at the time now does not a play for us. The sleek wanted to at least been market for him. So so I like this way of strategy. You have teams like like man's United Oh you, you have the other teams. Where do they pick? The players will pick them from Swansea. All will they get? The youngest superstars striker Holand? You know that missed out on so I. Think about buying a philosophy now on these players are the consequences of that philosophy, but. I WANNA. Get your take on this, too. I I understand where you're coming from. I liked the sign a deal. Just see feels like it's a lot of money given his contractual situation and given the fact that he's hardly played football for two years. I'm just wondering whether they could have negotiated down given that he obviously wanted to come I think fifty million a tunnel like him is. Cheap if he doesn't have one year left, let's he's got three years left. It would be more. Yeah. It'd be far more than that. I know basically like I think. They got him on a really good price. I don't think the. I don't think the the the injury and the fact that he hadn't paid much for the last eighteen months. Is An issue assume? He was only on the bench, warming up against Chelsea. Very happy. Again. I think the talent is there I think coming home. We're probably benefit him more than anything else and maybe. Deleted attitude issues that we've had in Guada- times have been really tough with him and dropped from the squad excetera. Disappear in a more German environment kind of thing and I. Don't know for me. I can't see this one going wrong with tour. John Dr Lawrence has given his Having examined Leroy Sunday from from twenty miles. Stadium pretty much. But I WANNA get your view on it. It is post. Pandemic city still have of course, the the Court of Arbitration for Sport appeal hanging over them, they could be tougher much tougher financial position. He didn't WANNA. Go anywhere else. Could they not have strong this out a little longer and gotten a better deal or I might just purely nitpicking being. Well, you know I, always go respects the Germans. They will try to make ah do deal out of it. All uses football. Leaders do calculations of players I think I will put by upfront. Doing that but I I agree. Still one year left on his contract, but this is a player who would be there forever. He is the state of five six seven years is supposed to nullity. I think he fits the bill big time for buying it I think this will be priority number one all the time I think Kaya hearts would be a number two, because Kai Hav is a different player from the rest of them because he's is kind of Balak kind of type. There's not many of them around so I think this guy fits the bill. It's fits the bill of the new by immunity. John Thank you so much. Thanks John Pleasure as always boys. So you think you think a too much money, or you're not sure about fitness. I think when he's full so I. If? He's the guy from two years ago. It's a steal. But. I just think they had a lot of leverage. In this situation, because of of of of cities condition because of of the pandemic. and. They obviously been. Talking to him and his people for a very very long time. So you know sometimes? It makes sense to get your business done early. Sometimes it makes sense to wait and push the envelope if they wait. Another couple of weeks and city get banned from Europe. all of a sudden city have a cash slope issue, right and he is salable asset. You know you want you know they want to raise money. That maybe you could have made a better deal. on the other hand. I have to say. You know. is going to cost a ton of money if they go for him, But equally who Tino and his enormous wages and the enormous loan fee I mean I think it's something I think in the end between loan in wages. He's costing them something like twenty million. Yeah, that's going to be gone. Presumably, so you can, you can fit. Maybe even fit Harvard's and sonic to some degree. You know in that in that slot so. It's an interesting one Then again. Do you need to be in a rush to sign? When? You know you'll still be around a year from now yeah. I'm possibly. Enough Biron enough Dave Chappelle Kyle. Let's go for some quick hits. Let's go. But don't drop another. Two points match defined by VR Carrasco and Grease Mun jewels take it away. I tried to sum it all up and some up what you know what my thoughts is especially on on Green, but I on the game I'm disappointed by Barcelona again. Do new. Didn't think so I. Don't know I i. like Wikipedia for me was the only positive in game Suarez was pointless Is the other day and you got you got back on me or you. Listeners and stuff but I. Just don't get it I don't get how starts for that team. I'm not sure about the formation. Diamond. I just. I just think the diamond works if soirees, or whoever places in benign with Miss Your Fron. Is. A good game otherwise is pointless or even just runs into wide area. Otherwise is pointless. After the highly rated anything for most of the time it was static possession, no movement nothing almost no mish with coming from full bikes. I I was always again. I was disappointed. Yes. VR played a big part I thought. The first penalty uncovers crew. There was contact their from Vidal you know. I thought that was no problem. The one on Semedo was really really soft soft. Yeah! And the third one I thought was really soft as well so. other no again again. We should not talk too much about Var for game like this, but here we are Cara School. Showing. Why on earth? He went to China. A twenty six is beyond me made a lot of money. It's funny. 'cause we kind of forgot about him and I'm like when he's there. Dude, potentially in the right game is a game changer. Yeah, Big Time I. Mean the movement and. The boathouse of taking on people and Everything I just think he's a wonderful player when he's in that kind of form. And I thought you know authority. Played Hud the best performance. They played better. They created the more chances they had. The movement author was better. The patterns of play better. There was a lot of things I liked in the game and I thought the drawing. The end was probably fair result. And then we can come on grease mint. Okay, grease man, so he comes on in the ninetieth minute. Show last issue mediation. A lot of people view is that while screaming on my screen? I was screaming on the television. Why why don't you bring him on to help? Protect the draw the ninetieth minute car. He said it's because they were playing well, and then, and then he apologized degrees, when to which was which was weird from city, so I said I'm not GonNa Apologize, and then the most disturbing for me, said like all. If you bring him on, you're going to destabilize the Tim what hang on what? Did I hear that. What we? Did you bring your month and. Coming on, stabilize you team. How when? In which way I don't get it. How does destabilize anything? I mean I. I'm guessing he felt that. The grease been hasn't been the player that he wants to. We all. We all agree because he doesn't pay any position most. That's right. And you kind of knew that before, but we also have seen grease. Men play as a winger before early in his career before Madrid right. Yeah so. I think he's trying to adopt to that. It hasn't. Quite working out. What I don't understand especially going to go diamond. And especially since he's going to do what messy does. Would you not consider and I know it's maybe anathema to the team of four three three, but. Why, not place wise and grease men up front and play Messi Sanctuary Messi in the whole special kind of hole in the sense like do whatever the hell you want, Youtube guys adjust what he does or there's always a reference point in the middle. An agreement can float around him a little more like hundred percent I mean. Doesn't that seem more la route, two hundred percent, and then you can. Play Ricky. Put in the midfield three behind those three. Instead of refugees, thank you very much as well so you can get rid of reputation play, Ricky. PUTSCH WITHOUT SIMP-. Dissimilar impact on the game I just don't get okay. Houston Greenman for love money he's. He's on enormous which I think. He's on seventeen eighty million a year, okay? Why why? You're not trying to make you work. You know. And we saw it again i. Will you don't play with with him? You don't play better, so it's not. It's not like okay. You Benjamin and suddenly you're team. He's better. That's not true. Okay, so you know if you get. A very good level UTM will benefit for me right. You with me on the of course, so you know trying like you said site, try to play in a different way, because if you play four three three and you blame out on the left. You'RE NOT GONNA get anything from him, so maybe try do something a bit different where you could get the most of him. He scored fourteen goals. This season your competitions right? How many of them have come from messy pass? You. Tell me three three of fourteen. And how did Miss School on agreement pass macy's. Twenty Five, you know commissioner something to. Don't tell me that those suppliers can't cannot combine Moore's be decisive of course so coming in and again just to finish. Don't get me started on, or your messy does not. This is not true. macy's Wefan. Guzman's wife are best friends. missy invited in my birthday last week. This. But. So. It's not even like Auburn Message in the club and human surveys. Don't like him. This is not true. This is not true. It's just about finding the right chemistry on the pace finding away of all of them Suarez Michigan Graffman being able to play or together and sit Yan should be able to do that and like reasons that said yesterday on social media. We shouldn't have and you should not criticize if you're a brother or a father WIFI. You're having a going. Away you also said very fair. Point was like. Sich and doesn't doesn't have the team, is not him? He does. There's nothing that's such endorsing team dressing room and I think the one that can make things better on the pitch. Tilles messy, and if messy one things to be better I think he can make them better. Dust meet US my rent over Ballista on that game. God, because in that game misuse goes on a cheeky. He's seven. Goal for Barcelona in this you know. His career had. Pretty incredible right. Burger before the Costano families. Upset Cristiano Renaldo does have more goals. Against a stoppage stopping. Again. I, I think social media account. Put out like some stat that said like you know if you've made your debut of Barcelona at eighteen and scored forty goals a season every single year. You'd still have for the next years. You still have fewer goals. which I mean just absurd, right? I saw a list and this is where it gets fuzzy, because it's different eras and stuff the list I saw. I statistics, whatever but. Messy right now based on this list is number seven all time. increased, John was number, six, seven, hundred, seventy, seven, thousand, eight, working backwards. You've got the legendary geared molar for by Munich and Germany seven hundred thirty five I. think it's safe to say they'll both be passing touchdown. Pass them this season. Fading boost Gush Seven hundred forty six goals. payless, seven, hundred, sixty, seven, whole, Mario Seven, hundred and seventy, two, both these guys I think within range has increased our. Guy, who's top guy who's you know maybe not that? Many people are familiar with, but it also behind who played for the played in Czechoslovakia Austria before the wire to say like I wasn't around back. I. Don't know much about him. We're living in remarkable remarkable times I said it before, but it's. It's worth mentioning again. This is just unbelievable and you wrote to fascinating on Crisanto and macy's development or evolution. Let's put it out. And we. Know that they were amazing. I have to say I don't know how long you spend on them. They fantastic bur just on messy. Because because we're talking about missing out homage, she's Gamers and his. Gore's have evolved since. In the last few years. Well, the most remarkable thing about maximus goalscoring has remained constant and there were situations. Where because I? I wrote that piece with a lot of support from analytics and data from from stats while I'm in opt. What you notice is his goals of generally remained constant. For the team became little more messy dependent on data Martinez for example. What's really remarkable about Messi? Is that every single year that he's been in the League? He's either been first or second in terms of successful dribbles and attempted dribbles. That's crazy when you're thirty three years old. And still beating people so right so easily. He's game hasn't been involved in something where you know own dribble once in a while or I mean I don't know what's up with his legs. But that's that was to me something I was expecting. Arsenal beat up Norwich, as expected. Wow Michio doozy and Masuda ozone are still on the naughty step for different reasons, not Kona. Kai asaka signs a new GM. and. You want to celebrate because you hate French. Football Saliba won't be playing in the French Cup finals, please. Can you read the word? Can you read the word you wrote? I in the. Gone he's. Gone the Arsenal grinches deny. Me a chance of Playing Cup final okay. William Saliba he's announcement. When bought him last summer? They pay defeats sunshine and as Many clubs do and in transfers you add-ons and closes in the contract including when you low not a player to the Selah Club way if you play the sentiment of game. Be More extra money and incentive for the club. You've just bought the guy from to play or the why Sunday Jen could have kept thirty million and never blamed for the whole season because it was anymore. Okay, so he's an incentive nothing. There's nothing wrong in that. The called the close said. If you starts seventeen matches in competition, we play. We pay you another two and a half million euros right? Full different reasons one being the pandemic one being injuries, and the other one being some silver by. And the manager before. Right, celebrities on sixteen starts, which means that. At the end of his contract is low in Contri- Antigen, which has expired on June thirtieth. He's been on sixteen starts. We saw Cheng right so awesome right now. I don't have any money. So, did you now saying are? We have the French Cup final against PSG on the twenty. Could. We have sully back for that and we want to play so awesome. No problem less renegotiates a deal. A loan extension if you want. You know what can we do and Senate saying well? We can do what we agreed last summit. which is you know if he starts making seventeen starts, so you'd have to pay the money? Ain't GonNa Minute, so we can learn back to you. For one game was cost us two point. Five million euros and a can be injured in a game like every other player. Sauce I'M NOT GONNA. Hang on a minute. That's no right. This is not fair. The you don't seem to agree just. Listen Listen I. Just wonder way you say it. All makes sense to me. I wonder if there's another version of the story from Santa Chan, because otherwise this is just this is. Use the money and the play. This is just a cheekiest thing in the worst now. Just said we could have a bike, and yes, they wanted him to come to the trending gonNA. Call me just because he came from a long injury to assess him to you debate. Bassam just said you can have him, and you can start him in the final. We won't pay you the two point five million euros extra. said no all right those rows where we by the way that might still be resolved somehow and I think he might place. You would hope so. soccer contract is obviously big. Worry about also, we don't need to talk about as we know. Whatever you know. We know what's up with their I have my own thoughts on. Was You know? Gwen doozy. I thought they'd made up. Said last night after the game. For him to come back into the team, things have to change and they haven't changed you. Change, what are what is you have to do either? He maybe sorry, maybe changes that's chewed his behavior training other than this clearly something three games in Iran drop from the squads from a player that started against city, and against Brighton first two games is is very strange. Brady's making example artists our the. We agree or not. Maybe that's the way I just think that you have to be very careful. The way you treat play you countryman ozone. Eighteen year old and again you have to. To deal with the players knowing the personality because you could get back like depending on how you treat people, you could get backlash, and you could lose the player so I mean and the other big differently. Mischer does obviously a liability Donald. To, the club because of his expiring contract, and is enormous contract, and whatever was going to see supposedly answered since if you don't want him anymore, you can sell them and get some money back. St Louis aware to West. Time on Wednesday night. It's also VR controversy again, but ultimately was a fair result gap and again. They didn't really play well again like we saw in the F in Africa sister. I thought it was a fair is aw thought West time deserve to win this game. Yeah, controversy! Some of this stupid like this allowed goal to guys like I. Don't know. Why took so long the guys on the ground? Apart from the fact that he's clearly. You're with us. White people are like. Cut to the David Moi shaking his head on the bench. Dude, I'm sorry, but watch the freaking replay and he's just dead lying on the floor. But no I. Think IT'S A it's. It's a reminder that you know. Chelsea need to get something by the way. The the penalty he won. I wouldn't be happy without if I'm did, did it? Look I mean I might have been contact, but. They. Do this whole accentuating the fall. Yeah, learn how to do that properly. Incredibly for don't do look very unnatural, looked extremely unusual, and it's not going to help you even if you were legitimately filed you you avoiding talking about the defending though Chester, defending Beirut again Christianson. Upbeat Kristen. Simply have known. The link was a one footed player and he was GonNa criminal to his left. How could you possibly? Could not believe it. They love Ruediger. That was a major major brain fire on his part, but at that he's. Not Starting in the next game. Now there's no. I think Chelsea is talking to Lorient Zuma. No. Tomorrow he's not fit. Zuma come on, there's just sending listing. beat up, January. Three one and serve up three of the best goals you'll see all season. Imagine that event is yeah and entertaining us. Tools your favorite. So. If you haven't seen them debate, the first one a amazing I touch turn, be two players, and then shoots okay. The keeper could have done a little bit better to be on the key. Not really in the top in the bottom corner bats than Crisanto, has a son distract from twenty five yards in up corner, wonderful, and then started step over on the edge of the box and then cured with his left foot. Click literally cleaning the top corner. It's really hard to pick. I would go think for deep on the big debates, but just I think the first such and the turn in a very crowded small space. I think he's is unbelievable and again shows he can unlock games like that. which nominee players can what about you? I totally torn I Four! Cristiano because just the way leather to, and it's a special occasion when he scores on a long on a long. Reservoir. But deposit her special. Meanwhile God, bless you keep pace beating Torino two one coming from behind once again, but there would be without strikers this weekend against Milan. COULD PHILIPPA CASE PHILIPPA CASSETTE ON She Mobley, both out and I. Think this is the this is going to be big hurdle. interesting to see whether they have A. They have a kid WHO's only made a couple? Appearances could be starting up front. otherwise we said Beth does the I nine or someone nine who I think i. Personally I would play Malinkovich. Savage further up the pay him as a false Stein. Yeah, because at least got the side give. You only counter-attackers going to be cooler air realistically. Yeah, but another test of Simone Inzaghi ability to. Your Club. Says Liverpool won't defend the title next year. They'll be attacking the next one. You'd expect him to say he's always in character because. This is this is. More of! A club sentence then this is brilliant, and yet like you said God is just him. This is why is and that's why they will probably keep winning the mind. Okay, my mono win the League or maybe knowing the same. Way But because he will make sure his players are up for. It would repeat them now all summer. Probably let's. Let's. Let's go. Let's be satisfied lists. Goof for more or less go again and this and dine. You could, you could see in your head. You could teach him saying that it's just He's just brilliant. If you follow football a future NPR, definite. GOB YOU INTERVIEWED UEFA president. Alexander suffering Is it true I told you we my fans in the champions? League final. that's right I think. said it before, but he said on July ninth. They're gonNA. Decide based on what the situation is in in Portugal whether it's going to be possibly said as of right now it won't be possible is about disolve like resurgence of the the virus day I think it's it's a health issue right? Yeah, that's what's going to. That's what's going to drive it. We don't know which way things are going, but the main reason have July, ninth cutoff date is at the whole protocols forgetting forgetting the teams they arrange the teams and having him with fans are without fans makes a huge huge difference. It's not like you can be like. Oh, look viruses gone. Okay! Everybody rock up tomorrow. But you know they're. They're hopeful and inflexible and. I could form. Look for the piece comes out on Friday. He also talks about other stuff why you should read the piece. Yeah, definitely injury prevented all their fury on, but a shot after their tough game against bottom winning six nail was six different goalscorers. One of them named Ashley Young. And they found out also that united will let them keep. Alexa Sanchez on loan until the end of the season, which is important to them yet. United saying I. You can't keep them for the Europa League why? Well I would hazard against guest. It's because united are also in the euro police then. They don't WanNa face. But then he doesn't play the game. I steph like why so if Don't face united the toll you preventing him from potentially winning a trophy and being a key in the team that is paying his wages in a big European competition. Oh is crazy. I don't have a problem. With you don't play, guess united like every Looney does in England and you don't pay. A case the rule. The poor guy played the your colleague and potentially can win it. United the deal ended June thirtieth united them back now already if they wanted. They would be able to play, so but okay, but whatever. United! Dates. To take advantage of the situation, they could have done the same thing with with Dean Henderson I wouldn't have a problem with it I mean that is. That's the reality situation. It's your Guy I don't have an issue with it, but yeah, obviously inter are rather annoyed. Gabu appraising Milan and then they go and drop punts aware to spy and probably should have got beaten as well. but mine is managed somehow to to get rid despite you Brian vicious return. What's going on? What happens is the first of all just dropped points to spot the spot actually. Fighting to avoid relegation figure that they were GonNA. Lose this game, so they actually arrested. A number of key regulars. That's at SPAGO tuneup first of all through a Weirdo multiple defection pinball goal, and then to just lock Eddie scoring a goal this holiday you say. How is how is this for Kerry sloppily thirty? Eight. Years Old, it's a better golden all three. You've. Put together. Is only goal this season by the way, so you're in these situations, but me and fight back to Hebron comes on. I disagree. I think being on created more than enough chances to win this game and on a different day in a different day we would have been praising me fight back I don't think this is a problem and I. Think they're actually in pretty good shape heading into the lots of game. The Guardian reports that newly promoted clubs to the premier. League will have to pay eight million pounds each this season, and or this coming season and next season to help offset the costs of the coronavirus pandemic. Does that seem fair to you. Yeah, I think it is, it is guy but I think it's not that they will have to pay probably that money would be taken out of the money that they will get by being promoted, which is far more than what they would earn in the championship, so I think. As Fair that you pay bail of your PA by being promoted to what you know. Lhasa vinings, and all the things that the coronavirus them I think that's that's fair. Yeah I'm looking to take rebate and their money and they took the rebate took the hit this year. And ultimately you know what the primarily there joining the primarily primarily clubs can do whatever the hell they want. Because you would expect the team. They were joining the Premier League teams. As well we'd have the argument is they're coming into TV contract? That was negotiated when they weren't there. So, they're benefiting from it for something that they haven't yet. Contributed to is essentially the argument. The primarily would wear the black lives matter budgets for the rest of the season on the players shirt, but some x players, an analyst like Neville poetry several have said that they will no longer wear them. They've got their little badge on this show all top weather. What's going on, unless not even talk about a Mutt. latisha cause was shambles. Yeah. Having an issue with some of the politics are what he considers to be. Some of the politics behind black lives matter I mean like. I don't want to get granular nuts and bolts on this, but. This is an issue that will arise when you as a league. I know the team captains idea, decide okay, everybody. Everybody's GonNa wear this right, so you stand out if you don't wear it if you don't. You're not given a choice. And also when the movement itself. Ends up meaning different things to different people because they can go in different directions. Mean from what I read. It seemed that never never were told to wear. Now. You're told to do something. It loses song deaf, and then it becomes a story when they don't wear. Go, explain themselves and explaining. This midnight without. This is the problem with and this is why I said from day one you. You support the movement as an individual. Institutions, and the minute goes corporate in this way where everybody I mean not corporate in terms of a corporation having a message, but corporate in terms of a corporation compelling. It's employees to go and support it. Then you've you've you've opened up a gigantic Ken Awareness? Jewels are technical expert all this stuff about Nike's new-ball, just a load of marketing nonsense. See haven't got the board yet. We Nike to send us one. And they said that they did not have any more to to send out to to people like us, so we'll have to wait, and maybe by to see based obviously a new texture so new design you. Newborn inspired by Corp Ball so you've got. Imports exactly to upon lease. The book and fly in about like can can go in the better where no dodgy movement that sometimes you see a Ba-. Like, a beach bar, so we'll have to see just like invasion if it works great. If it doesn't, you can always go back to or shape or form then and stuff like that we see. I wish I could. I could have a here to to. Tell you what the feeling? Yes, but maybe I say! Well we have this for every World Cup. Introduce the I. Don't know if it's Nike or their competitor. That also makes balls the introduces a new World Cup Ball always have when people go in interview. The goalkeeper's like well. Differences are going to be absolutely minimal. Maybe generate supposedly for this. Maybe because if it's true, if the differences are too great, and it sucks, then they're not going to go with it right. Yeah! I just feel with generating a whole bunch of publicity for Nike, which is fine. You know well done to that. They got good marketing people. Finally got a bit of Transfer News, not putting supposedly plotting to spend hundred million euros on Debrecen and Victoria Zemun from Lille Brazilian defender and the Nigerian striker agents and the plays i Naples as we speak. Love money in a pandemic era right. It's a ton of money and having. Did they really have it well? If they sell cool, bother. Yeah, I mean so but. This reminds you of somebody. Of maybe another Lille player of African descent is his agents stepping out of the helicopter at the training ground. I kinda feel like we've been here before with. Of course and this is a way of getting other people come look I'm not dissing Napoli in any way shape or form whatsoever. It's a lot of money, but these are these are greg. We about human all year Gabrielle Good player investigating. As twenty two, he'll be exactly. Chelsea and Everton is when a a very keen on him so I. Just want it so public and you kind of announce it and I'll be curious to see I. don't know if videos out there. I'm sure videos going to be out. There of those guys yeah. We saw them leaving the hotel. It's a wonderful way to do business. Look if. Stuff like this often in the past right, you sign Gonzalo going. Round Madrid for goodness sake. This definitely. All right we done. So we'll be back Monday after pack we get again. I'm looking forward to it. me to. Joe, we invite our listeners to come back and join us. Please do this story.
