I need I need to hire you to bring you on stages of you know being unconscious millionaire podcasts. We only bring the best people on and we like to show them. And you know you've got a great website. I I don't normally do this. But Scott Old Trafford Dot Com folks. You need to go look at this website. It's really well done. It's a clear marketing message of no question if this is for you and you have no question. What Scott's GonNa help you do and that's perfect because most website go to you have actually no idea if you belong there or what what's going to happen what's going to happen because you came there so. Scott you've done it right and there's no question about why it's such a young age you've been able to have so much success and that's really where I'm going to start. Is the origin story of where this all began for you. And you've got such an interesting one of how your entrepreneurial life began because it was so early and and it was dramatic. So what was the first thing you did that was really that entrepreneurial slain coming out of you? Yeah I mean I think I was. I was an entrepreneur for five six seven years before maybe be longer before I even knew. I was an entrepreneur and now I moved on. This acreage married. My parents moved the plenty of land and my father brought some Hanzomon Days in Rhode Island. Right hand is that lay a brown ex and I was like well. You know what? Why don't we get some more than we could supplier neighbors? This ended up being. Its own business where I would supply knowing my neighbors a ton of them but senior homes and so by the time I was nine years old. It was a very you know. Full functioning almost egg fire and then from there. I always loved technology. I always loved Hannah. Just a little antisocial. I didn't really necessarily resonate with the people I was growing up. I didn't have any friends around me. My population of where I was was like thirteen my household it to others There is the nearest town was fifty miles away so I ended up just kind of creating these businesses online helping people programming and at what ended up being marketing by the death of a sixteen years old. I had a very successful business and it wasn't until someone said. Oh my goodness you're Scott and response was what's an entrepreneur And then I guess once I once had happened. I started understanding. Entrepreneurship was add things. Not on growing growing growing. And then as a lot of happened when you're a first-time entrepreneur that successful ego and pride takeover and we lose everything so I went from quote unquote everything that of course. What was everything to me to being almost a billion dollars in debt. At a time I was twenty one and of course this was not by going out and blowing money at a club every night. This was going investing too much money into much my resources and not being focused And some of the tunnel was twenty. One I was in a very very not so good situation and then through various businesses in various things You know by the time. Twenty fifteen game around. I started selling information on the Internet. Deep Mind I was helping a lot of other people with marketing. A lot of people helping grow the business but I wasn't really in the limelight. I wasn't what I consider magnetising really and that this kind of just blew up and things but really well in two thousand sixteen really well in two thousand seventeen and then of course as soon as I'm out of debt as soon as everything's going good as soon as they have these three or four hundred thousand dollar months what comes up allow. I'm not fulfilled. I'm not happy and I'm doing this business. Because they had to not because I want to end so that Started a nomadic adventure at Bloomberg business. Not No good way in the wrong not necessarily a good way Just kinda literally stepped away from install it most of my team go and I went nomadic in September. Twenty seventeen and really on this amazing journey of of being awakened love finding my soul mate of redefining a business and now the business that I started even just earlier this year. Twenty eighteen is now going to be. You know PAT PAT FOR OUR PATHS. A million dollars run rate Well before the winter of this year and literally just when things are in alignment. Everything feels good. I wasn't in alignment and so I went up down up down up and down and finally for what I feel is abundance alignment contentment and definitely a peak level of happiness for my life. So that's a roller coaster fast rocket kind of journey. Because you're kind of a fast rocket right so I want to backtrack just a little bit. Because there's several pivots that you discussed when everything blew up in two thousand seventeen we go back and look at it and had to lay off people and yet thought you'd made it and then you blow it up. What do you think happened inside of you that resulted in that blowing up because it always comes from within US Because I've been through three. You Know Mountains and peaks so I know what they're like and every time there's personal work to do so that you don't do that stuff again. What did you discover? I mean I think I resisted it for about nine months and every mentor around me said you just keep doing what you're doing. Because money is made from repetition not necessarily innovation of heavy. I when I made the call to do that. It felt like the best thing I ever been calling my. Coo and telling him what I was going to do and then doing it nomadic. It felt like the world's weight on my shoulder Disappear what it did for me In many ways is allowed me to play a game of. Let me do what I want to do. Instead of what I feel like I have to do and it allowed me to almost design a business around what I wanted in my life even though looking back I had no sweet Lou what I actually want it at an that opening also allowed me to go out of a relationship that I was in. That was not really well which was a little bit toxic And then you know. Kind of meet my soulmate. Which is now my wife Very Later and So it allowed me to like come down from things allowed me to work. You know one hour or a day for so what I'm hearing. Is that you and the universe together working together. Manifested the experience that ended up being a cleanse for. What do you think you were cleansed from? I think I think I have IPAD so much lack of love towards myself. I think I've had so much Feeling of unworthiness. I think I've had so much self sabotaging tendencies. I think that I I had to let go of control. I think control was always the thing I always want it. And when I let go of Control and I allowed the universe in. It's infinite wisdom to guide me. Everything kind of fell into place for faster alignment and I think that. That's why everything that I'm doing the therapy that I'm doing the work myself. The ten hours a week of just crying of the past things leading the past version of me go letting the fact that I am not a failure leading the impostor syndrome. Letting go of all these things his allowed. My business grow fundamentally far faster because I don't really think we have most of US defense business problems. We have our own mindset challenges and obstacles that we have massive opportunities to step into and it was the universe giving me like. It hasn't many times in my life a moment of reckoning to say this is the time because there is some specific destined purpose that we do not know that. I don't know what it is but that it needs to push me or thrust me through and that's what it feels like Whether or not that that's true or just a story I create myself That's that's that reflective. That's what that's what it is so i WanNa take a moment and challenge you because you're listening today for a reason as I frequently tell you there's never an accident as to which episodes or which radio shows you happen to hear from conscious millionaire. I believe they're always the ones that are right for you on the journey that you're on so my challenge to you is you've heard a laundry list from Scott of things that he's been working on. My question is which ones feel true for you as to why you might be stuck or why you might have self sabotage the last success you have. What's going on with you inside? That might be holding you back from that multiple seven-figure business you want. But you're not creating because the truth is the skills are there you can acquire those the strategists are there you can create or acquire those but inside. I think is an entrepreneur. I call it Zinn Mirror. We're on Zen Journey. And what I mean is that we're looking in the mirror and seeing the truth of who we are and my experience in what you're saying. Scott is the same thing used it if you want to define that next mountain because right now you're focused on during a million amonte but you're still saying while I do that. I'm cleaning up the interior landscape so the question and challenge for you listening. Today's what's in your interior landscape. That might need to be cleaned up so that you can go to that next mountaintop. Because that's really the journey. You're on Scott and I think you know I actually spent a myself and my wife. We spent out a a company a mindset companies specifically for entrepreneurs recently and if I look at an action focused on the million dollars a month because I know if I do the work of by myself. It's going to be able to get me to a million dollars a month because you the Entrepreneur. That can't do the can't get the price that they're worth is because they don't think they're worth the entrepreneur can't manage team is because they can't get people to trust them is because again trust themselves. If there's any outside problem outside opt let you have the only obsolete you actually have. Is that obstacle to yourself to your own version of your own identity. And I think that that is the place of exploration that is my play field. That is my that is the place where I'm playing now of. I don't really set goals anymore. What I just simply do is go deeper. Deeper deeper into these semi-in set beliefs with myself in the people that I surround myself with and that allows it opening for whatever it is that we want to do and I just think that that has been the most amazing experience for myself in the people around me so in this. I'm almost wanting to say current incarnation because next year may be yet. Another metamorphosis free. What is that positive impact? That you're focused on helping your clients get and how are you turning that into that million dollars a month? How you turning it into money. Jr So my belief is this. My belief is Of the people on planet earth the ones that have the most potential the actually effectively change and evolve the human species as well as our ability to live here on earth our entrepreneurs seemingly not a whole lot of other people care And they're rather extract resources out of the Earth or out of the people on Earth in order to be able to be perhaps perceived as being wealthier based on their own need for worthiness and I think entrepreneurs and early how the ability once they get to a level of abundance to be able to solve those problems. Because as soon as you've solve the problem or the challenge of having enough abundance for you and your family and your community you look further you look at. Will you know what I'm thirty four years old? I've done all this stuff for myself. Now in fifty four or whatever it may be. Let's go make the world better because nothing about my kids and their grandkids and so on and so forth and so my real mission right now and the mission of my company and the reason to a million dollars a month and beyond and get two three four five million dollars is because our mission is to be able to solve the problems of the entrepreneurs that can go sell the world. Because if we're able to solve the problem of being able to admiralty seven figure business with a fundamentally solve the abundance problem that entrepreneurs and then from there we can rally allowed the entire world to solve its problems because it's the entrepreneurs will take care of itself I don't know many entrepreneurs at the five to ten million dollars a year. That are out there being like okay. Let's go solve the problems. And so how have you turn this? What's this Your Business Model? That's turned the impact that you're making with entrepreneurs into money that you receive check so the way that we work with people we we work with people. We work with one type of person in terms of if they have a high ticket offer that they WANNA create or scales. They want to help people in a very high transformation way. The second person is somebody that has a high six or a seven but basically there at fifty thousand up to about two hundred thousand dollars a month and they're wanting to go to the half a million dollar plus and we help them on everything from marketing the sales to operations but it's specifically for people like that again are selling things that are on the high rent not necessarily brick and mortar not necessarily ecommerce by things that are highly transform. Hit Tidy Transform -able in society. So that's really the people that we work with. Okay so the transformative person and their specific so you know how they are. And then you're going to work on the marketing the sales operations so all of that is about attracting closing and the systems that they need in order to scale their business. So yeah and we we work. On the whole nine year everything from an operations mindset sales marketing we work on the entire ecosystem because of course if you if you solve the marketing and sales operations delivery problem you sell the operations delivery now. They need more business assistance continual basis and so we. Don't we're not an agency? We came in and we are kind of a merge of everything for mastermind to accountability to adviser to a consultant to mentor to coach. And so I'm curious. We've we've said that we're GonNa talk about going nuclear both to get fame and get wealth. So let's break that down into three pieces. What IS NUCLEAR. And why is necessary or important in terms of gaining wealth? Yeah so I won't go to adopt into this necessarily if you want to go to the website the Roi Method Dot Com to understand this a little bit more and and it's not an opt-in or anything like that is just full on website and basically our marketing methodology is based upon. Not just making your money in your business but to give you the three core real assets or types of well so the wealth of money of course the wealth of fame which is essentially having an audience. That's engaged in tune with what you have an influence which is relationships the relationship that I have with you the relationship you have with eleven hundred people that have been on the show for example or your shows and then from there if you look at it if you have an abundance and you have an idea you can only get so far with money but if you're able to have it in tune audience you don't have an audience. Now of hundreds of thousands of entrepreneurs have many amazing friends that are incredibly influential that are millionaires and billionaires have access to millions of people inside of their audience as well as the financial capital there intercourse working continues to be able to build that the day that I want to go and work on the next new thing that I'm called to do. It will be an eight figure business overnight but further than being figure business might level of impact reach and ability to mobilize something create. Massive momentum is far faster than the guy that has only one or the. Gal that only has one of those three types as a method which is our marketing methodology allows for someone to be able to create three simultaneously which is entry crates his chain-reaction where more money creates more audience. More audience grits will relationships more relationships crates audience and the essentially worked together to create this never ending chain reaction that essentially allows you to go nuclear. Which is why you know less than three years ago. I had a thousand people on my email is nobody knew who I was and I was a complete. Nobody and now everybody in my industry knows exactly. Why am I have the ability to push a button and talk to quarter of a million people? We're here we're Scott Old Trafford. He is a scaling millionaire. Seven-figure expert and we've been discussing how you can go nuclear to build both fame and wealth coming up the conscious millionaire business questions. We'll be right back with you L. O. J. Chrome the third founder of conscious millionaire is two thousand twenty the year that you WanNa get on the fast track to making your first million. I made my first million at twenty five and now I WANNA help ten. Select entrepreneurs entrepreneurs with five and six figures get on the path to achieving their first million. Now the first million accelerator is starting soon so to apply. Text me at my cell with your name and the words I million. That number is three zero. Three six four one zero four zero one again. Text me at three zero three six four one zero four zero one. That's the number is three zero three six four one zero four zero one to apply to be one of the ten entrepreneurs in the exclusive first million accelerator. Welcome back I'm with our featured guest Scott old and I'm Javy Krumlov Third Your host and high performance coach. We're here today to discuss how you can also become a millionaire. That's really the core of today's show here at conscious millionaire because Scott has done it. He's done to the Young Age. And we've been discussing that in the first part of the show. Now we're going to dig down into some specifics. About how Scott Lips how? He approaches life than other people that have helped him become successful. And while. I'm asking Scott these questions I want you to consider the questions for yourself and ask yourself. How are you showing up in your life as a business? Owner is a business coach entrepreneur. And is that a way that's going to show you the path to multiple seven figures as well so. Let's start with high-performance secrets? What are three high performance secrets that you've learned? That would help anybody listening to become a true high performer. I think the the first one really truly understanding your Zona Genius doing everything in your your capacity to be able to live inside of that zone of genius and not adhering to the rules of the world to tell you what you need to do or not to do. I think that one is by far one of the most important wines You know I work quote unquote work less than twenty five hours a week. Now because if I work more than twenty five hours a week I literally into my job. Here's what I mean by. Not if I work more than twenty five hours a week my level of ability creek creativity strategy to be able to hang out with the people that allow me to have the relationships I have dwindles and so if I if I work more than twenty five hours a week I am missile useless so that then goes into realizing that you know you the second one. Is this kind of whole idea between hustle and flow. So the second thing that I believe is incredibly important for high performance is to have more flow in your life which I think that of course you understand quite well. And I'm a huge believer being able to create moments in time and space for PLO state and this flow state is so important for gray. Tippety it's so important to realize that. No entrepreneur hustled their way to a great idea. The great idea happened when they were away and they were out of context so that the lateral thinking that allows for the dots thickened knack can actually connect. Because it really doesn't happen when you're behind the computer screen for fourteen hours a day. The last piece that is so incredibly important is to realize that entrepreneurs are addicted to significance and momentum so two major drugs of the entrepreneur. We are fundamentally driven by these two things. If we feel like we're not momentum all the breaks go on lose centrally our minds if we also do not feel significant if we do not feel like what we're doing is contributing to ourselves in the world we also feel this level of a fleeting quality of our life that we don't have purpose so we don't have a reason for living and it's not about the fact two of these things are negative significance in momentum are very very positive but it's a have awareness around how it's working in your life. What are the things that stopped for a long time is I kept wanting to get on the phone to close six figure deal but it's because it was my significance attached by significance of momentum? Every time I would make a sale I would get a momentum hit and get a significance hit different. Says there should've been a salesperson closing those sales because my time should be based on the lateral thinking not the actual sales and a lot of the time we do these things. There's a facebook post whether it's content creation whether whatever it is inside of your goes on genius so that we can feel the momentum so that we can feel the significant and and sometimes you have to let go of that or five significance momentum in other parts are life so I'm curious. What ritual do you have especially in the morning Scott? I'm still developing that ritual. I here's what I love what I love to do. In the morning for the first two hours is whatever feels good that day and so if I look at this week this morning I slept it yesterday morning. I got up at six thirty and I went to the beach for an hour and a half the morning before I went for a workout. I think that I'm more of a flow structure type of person. So what I do is. I create time places for flow to happen. I let my intuition or whatever. I'm feeling do that. The issue with that we're most people have. The problem is allowing their worthiness or their guilt to come in like all right need to work right now or oh. I need to do that and so I think my own rhythm in the morning is to take two hours of the morning for whatever I WANNA do. I take an hour and a half. So it'll be right after this record thing. Today I took an hour and a half to get into the bath puts bath salts in just lie down and meditate for thirty or forty minutes in the bath night. I don't look at my phone for two hours before I go to bed at Matt's really the rich will everything else in between I can't control adult wished you well you know. A kind of a collateral question is would environment works best for Scott to be your most creative to be in your flow to be in your zone of genius walks here Erin. Venice have such amazing house here in Venice. It's just so beautiful and I love the ocean. I Love Nature. Love as much as I don't get as many hikes anymore because I don't have a car here at Venice mostly just bike but I love going up for long walks. I walk four hours a day. Almost every day and Yeah just allowing the mind to just kind of float and be in that state of allowing. It's just go in that really kind of creates Creates a very very Induces a flow state. So I think it's about quietness thing about stillness. As much interest in I'm not going to be Us I'm still working on it. Stillness creates flow. But we're mostly afraid of Stolnis because stillness means we have to look inwards and not freaks. Most of us up. Yes I happen to like that and I'll add a piece here because it might be something that resonates with you or you might be listening go. Wow that's interesting I maybe never coded it quite that way. But maybe that's true for me to my favorite. You know like I have great sound systems. I've carver sound system. They're never on my vehicle because my favorite sound is silence. Yeah Yeah I believe being in silence. I love being in silence. Yeah I've really really adopted that in the last few months A lot of the time now when I leave the House I leave my phone at home. No headphones no phone jets. The sounds of society. Of course I go to walk streets here I go to. The beach just walked by the beach. Of course there's sound but there's no intentional sound. The intention is to allow the sound of life to be just the soundtrack of as much nothingness as possible. But I'M NOT GONNA lie I love the nothingness of big Sur. I love the nothingness of nature and It's one of my intentions able to be. I'm glad that you. You mentioned big Sur because the big Sur coast is a been to thirty six thirty seven countries. A lot of beauty big Sur coast is a spiritual place. I've ever been I love. I love the big circa itself. Amazing so far. It's my favorite place that I've been So much that you know of course myself in Libya. My wife got married but we're doing our ceremony next year. We're doing it in big Sur. Because that place just call us the both of us. It's it's wonderful. What's the book you'd like to recommend? I think the one of my favorite books is stealing fire by Steven. Kotler Jimmy Wheel again. It's a flow state. It's about being able to how to access those states. A little provocative it's a little deep. It's a little Open-mindedness that you need to bring with it. But at the end of the day it allows you to kind of have a Understanding context of what it is to have flow into access flow states and ways to be able to access full of states. Easier Way and my last question is what's the legacy that you WANNA leave. Scott I believe that my mission on this planet as far as I can tell is to be able to allow homo sapiens to evolve to the next level of what it means to be on almost sapien. I do not know what that means today but continually that his what has come up for me and while I do not believe that I know what it is. I do feel like I'm on the right path to be able to significantly impact the definition of that before I die so Unfortunately I unfortunately or fortunately I think perhaps more. Fortunately I don't know what that means and so today my purpose is to be able to help entrepreneurs in solve the problem entrepreneurs so that tomorrow or the next day or ten years from now. It gives me the wealth Financial Wealth the Fame the influence to be able to significantly impact that for us as a society. We're here were Scott Old Trafford. He is an expert in scaling multiple seven-figure businesses. We've been discussing how you can go nuclear to build fame and wealth and by that have more impact and change more people's lives.

United's Lifeless Performance

"Welcome insulated. Sedition, ESPN c, I'm Dan Thomas Sean by Craig Burley, Stevie nickel and Ari Moreno today. So the return of Champions League action, the big match at Old Trafford Manchester United, taking on events as it was vented who took away all three points from England pilot Vollers go in the end enough to give them the victory, but the school line doesn't really tell the whole story, doesn't it? Not really don't really care the school at going. Marina just sat me press conference again, which is when we talked about yesterday, we're in Valencia for second place which we mentioned yesterday which they are. But that's a story presents the Ren elite cult, which doesn't really read your know that the ten minute primarily millionaires behind the guys. It's all the horrendous apart from mistaken. Chelsea. He spent millions and yet is defeat. Defeat ready on these in a press conference. Lauding eventers about how great they are. Kia lenient, Benicio frontier, attache. We'll look kicking the Falstaff. Nope. Nope. To get close to him. Quite frankly is just an embarrassment. No the spin up till millions tippy wall second level because that's what they are, but he's right. His name. How many of these United players get into the event. He bring in. The question though, marine yourself season Footsie's ten league. Fatema valencia. Males off the piece was not as almost kick some of the football when you see against what event is that on. By the way event is the best footballing Sade in Europe. They're one of the best save structure so they are, but he's getting them simple as on, but it's not just him. He wants it new signings. In the summer, he pleaded sweat would. He didn't open his, but it didn't give him a new players. List of the players, bro engines, no under story, but one of the best goalkeepers. Right. Who is dollar one brought by it bro. Lindell often fray. Then he brought my teaching brought Lukaku Alexis Sanchez and there's other can't remember. He's the Molen pogo. Only one hundred one of the best players in the world apparently on a regular basis from your vantage, the mole. She didn't get might even Paris inch. He's probably pleasant. I'm not saying Mon from on that is good as event is, but it's not all down to the praise event is and slag. That's just not good enough. I'm sorry. And actually he can argue the events play great football players and team can't do that. Well, he's team can't even defend properly because he saw everybody behind the bowl and the first half in particular, the retreat to the ruin half. So the the idea of is wants to get across a half way. Then we go and close the ball. Then we go and win. And then we break. They didn't even do that pro-police Venice, even when the United have what people to pick posses off and fortunately for United going forward in the final thought you meant as very, very pool. I mean, the goal didn't create too many clear. Cianci's, but it was almost too easy for them. So yes, technically was good event, but tell you what even even the doctor tape, what they couldn't do that properly either. So what did they do actually, what did Manchester United those give to accentuate your point about the dominance of Juventus in the first half, it was nearly seventy percent possession at all travel. You rent playing away from home at old, try for and stadium that is desperate desperate to get behind the team to have to give them a reason to at least get him off their seat and somehow support this group and say, come on, let's find the emotion. Let's find the environment. Let's create the ambiance that makes Old Trafford Old Trafford. It wasn't until about the thirty first thirty. Second minute that couple of passes together by Manta United and office, and people are like. Pleaded, three batches. That is the level now for my to say United now, people may may suggest well, yes, we're not as good as what we can compete. No, not against renters, not against the top tier teams. So what you are right now is a mid table team trying to figure out how to get couple of resources together. That's the standard for my United. Then it is very sad to be mad to say, United fan nowadays. I'm sure the team points Chesney. He's been up till he went event could has boats Casella first choice, right. But he was great today, but he's not. I strokes right, but but no. Terrible AC Milan. So he bought kipah crazy. This isn't making your point though, is it? Are you saying that Banou she doesn't get into this United team. I'm Shane, but Nucci was last year cordray Banou. Banou much couldn't get the point game between between was outed by PS g twenty million. Right? So it's not exactly there's. No, there's no exactly sex, those pills which United players get into this steam. Making making a point, the vent, this don't necessarily have the grid is players in Europe, but the Manchester United because the cold properly. Because I'm telling you to me, I choice, right? But Jada didn't even know if he's going to plea because we thought, but not yet might play besides enough, you'll have been eating what couldn't game. Jokes. Maturity wasn't guaranteed to PS g should his sold. Renovate that been caused by Marx, Allegra. Cush properly. That's my point. You know, listening still better players have been coach picture. Shoot, shoot the boys Bush. Yours employs much. We the or conceal was Barich E ON the shopping list over marina it was. So the question to marine new then is because he's always telling us who he can get the question to marina should be well, okay, you've gone insane nearly a full team. So he can't complain if you live in plays and you end up with what they have, and he can pick a by and say the, you know, as good as you as well today individually, there are some players who who out there, but who performance event and nice don't coaching. So this is no pocket marinas door. He picked the players. He coaches them and they produced up. No, she didn't kill any. Run anymore. Did you see them playing for Italy against Poland. Torn apart when the counter. By by the way we're up immense. But United whole of an spent three hundred million ever ever spent. I don't don't even even ruffle the fails because the anymore. That's why the the quality disparity in terms of, yes, the coaching right now, but also the fact that meant to say United this, the sort of things that are coming out of winning you weeding half aleni today to change the game. I mean, all respect to my wife aleni, but if he's the guy that's going to change the game for you. I think that's a standard. Also the idea that you're not talking about how you gonna compete with event. You're talking about how are we competing against lens here that that's where we're concern not up here, but down there, that in itself also tells you where the mentality is, and it's just simply not good enough. So what happens next. How does how we gonna, hey, we can we, we could probably crystal ball Montana's United may or may know a good result against Valencia. But if they do get a good result and last so Maho they get the the Lookie is drawing of Goni, see if appropriate team going to be out. It's not difficult to even see it because I what we expect to remind the one good thing that came out of today's results was the fact that Valencia couldn't get that win in Switzerland against young boys, the way in which it plays out. Remember next up knighted is that trip to terrains take on you? Then it's young boys that I'll track from the final game. Group stage is a way against Valencia. By the way. Very good. We say, we've seen that in league getting the, hey. They actually. Old traveled on United. This. Big, Frank, Kia. What was the point worrying. Stage competition United. Okay. It's because they're going to get some points shouldn't rather late late last year. Okay. The slightly run for a long period, but then it took full advantage of it, but they did this on. I mean, the United order lanes take your pick. One of the two is real Europa league stunned and United win the euro plate and then. Everything's okay. We'll check in with the truth is you don't believe in a second German and Marino as delay to tell everybody that we own a secondary to again. Say is he's, he's now for the last couple of games when people have been yelling, whatever they yelling the stadium, this whole thing about three. I got three titles here. I wanna I wanna travel in Italy this. Fantastic. Okay, great. He didn't on the weekend against Chelsea. He did it again today and I'm sitting here. What does that do for me at the medicine, United player or Fant right now, how is that important to me right now? How does that get the best out of me as a player that get the best out of the team? Right. This second of that stuff matters at this point is the concerned if I was managing fan. Fan. How does this get fix? Quick fix this being downhill since fogy left, and it doesn't seem to be an easy resolution to change monitor, stop going to change you recruitment policy. I mean, David Moyes bless how to said we're fighting drug side. Trough halston take Romansch and then double down with the flamy comment. That was it finds it can compete money, they can say, and do the one Shirley or the fun of any club with what spending this money you deserve the money just in a press conference. Eulogizing another team and telling you fighting for second place. I'm sorry. Just no good, three, six months, tenure, I can understand that three years and been spent what's been spent. I'm sorry. No, not good enough. Always normal dentist by discussing whether or not they the group, but it's a kind of collective that doesn't really matter. Well, not for me because even if they get out of the group, it doesn't really answer the question of what's next romantic knighted. How does it get better from here? You make the argument that it's actually better that they drove into Europe elite because they may just be a good enough to win that competition. And maybe that does something for them. But in my opinion, if you don't see what the next step up is, then you're staying, you're staying in the same place. And if you're staying in the same place against teams, like Liverpool might just to say to you so on and so forth, and that's your domestically. But in Europe, you're essentially taking steps back. Everybody's running you buy. We've spent time when you not. That's. There's lots venison love. Larry, very good sign up -solutely. The movement, the FOX team passan the understanding the partnerships around the field every single thing that the opposition they were playing against didn't have. And unfortunately today for them, the only thing that didn't have I, that was the attack, the quality, the normally would produce. Tone Renaldo might not even above the plate in this game because he didn't have a good game. Didn't really do anything, but still what head and shoulders above my chest United. So as unit. I mean, style point, just just last abo- create and putting the bone that was, you see a player like Bettencourt twenty years old running circles around all the other place to say United in the midfield controlling the game, actually having the personality, put it in the ball down. And then finding the next bats, the inner change. The comes to the middle Renaldo goes at why then ranaldo comes on the middle. Why? And develop goes on their Neath freedom to run overlapping runs coming from Alexander down the left hand side. They know what they're playing. They know what their roles are on the field. Any shows the way they play no subs. Br, bring a Nadi, not. I know he's bench was strongest Fellini. What's not to Fred. Brazilian talking midfielder signed in the summer. On the bench. About missing something here. We haven't got Fellini to change the game never might. We haven't. Alexis son chairs played well, I understand, but we have got Myra one fully and they to change the game. Going. Gone with us. Just remind Janek stra time. We'll be on three questions. United future. You can always check out on the sites. Geico presents eyewitness interviews with inanimate objects. This is Belinda Collins live on the scene of a recent hailstorm here to describe the event of all bro. I was just hanging on the roof. When this gnarly storm starts dropping baseball sized hail. The shingles got beat up a few windows broken was savage. Did you do anything to help, bro? I was in survival. Your football can't help you in a hailstorm, but the guy go insurance. It can see can help you get covered for personal property damage, call gyco to see how a Ford -able homeowners insurance can be. Today ram matured with a victory over Victoria pills in, however, beside a whistle off half and full time once again, but performance cking sort of counting age that Ramsey at fans have come to expect against its aim. The also in fairy accent compared to that next opponents, which cools boss alone didn't have to be this way. Ali schone. This going to being a great way to build some momentum of horrible defense against the van say, but it didn't send out that way. The start of lots we Real Madrid and rhetoric coming from Real Madrid was you know what we're gonna utilize live on this game to get some confidence momentum. And then in the mid week, we're going to destroy Victoria Pilsen and bad. It's make us gonna make us even better against Barcelona. Well, they lose to live on confidences gone Lopate who knows what his status and they play against Victoria appeals, and you might have thought, okay, well, this is this is again that step forward. This is gonna launching pad. No, it's Victor that created more than anything else and against the team though, by the way, Victoria Pinson had chances opportunities sitters that if they were halfway decent team in the final third, it would have been a different scoreline Real Madrid in trouble in a moment that all of a sudden it's important to be to be Victoria Pilsen at home four days until classic. You can't imagine the low Pataki suddenly going to find magic formula behind the count to get this work and there's no real hope from this. There's always hope we've got good players, but he could not playing well at the moment. So I suppose upside, there's no massive. If you again, you're gonna get pasted. We can come up Florentino Perez needs because here's a guy that thought it could just before the World Cup within higher the monitor and and then it was a right mash and. You know, I think it was just Ouragan. No, obviously, with with the Renaldo want to leave either. I don't know. Maybe it was Hoppy for them to leave a big mistake. No. So in trouble by this. Get it right as polish, he doesn't. King wrote certainly on the field rudderless and that means that when the coach has to become the leader, here's to step up and do something, and it doesn't mean hearts to be an particularly incredible just meet little changes so that you'd given the place to grasp on, you know, go round them, trying them trying get the confidence. That's your job. The Coachman things are not going well, but what you can't do it Coolidge when things are going horribly wrong as keep throwing the same bodies trying to play the same way. I mean, we size Don. And we question these tactics. Well, when this was happening to them under him, it changed. LIPA take you hostage injured because it doesn't against Bonsor. We're going to get smart. Sorry, when did when did look particular job was after the two thousand sixteen one, was it? Yeah. Yeah. So why didn't Florentino Perez wait until we actually putting the proper tournament to see a guy could mileage properly Spain plate and grit dolph and all. But they're coming through the pink qualification for the us for the Spanish teams in the fringe team's. It's usually pretty simple. So issued a waited and saw what can monitor your wars monitor World Cup before ten and made a decision. It didn't jump ten and it looks as if he's somebody who a record the club management and that's proven. It's kasich. If they lose classical and I think in the manner in which they lose. Yes, I, I don't think this players that that really buy into whatever he selling, and that has become very clear. And so when you're saying that they're rudderless is part of it. He may just have a beautiful message to give up, but the players are saying what? No, thanks not today. Not ever. Meanwhile, the punch the city to continue to listen to Pequot easy waiting for them way against shanked off three. Now it could have been a lot more that victory coupled with liens against often Heim means that city now tall group elsewhere tonight by Munich with a win away against a Athens. Fine. Run in the group stages continues one way I've been keeps them tall level with buying. Just Ramana how things San as take on into the camp. Now tomorrow in group, both teams perfect. After two wins out a two respectively run looking to the gills balsa favor. It's going to be interesting. This plays out considering of Kohl's. There's no messy and it's the classic. Oh, this weekend. Yeah, you're right. It'd be interesting to see how the PLA I who replaces Messi would it be probably will. Plays a different style of football. Different system will Malcolm have a chance. Maybe it'd be interesting to see that. I know. So how do they play without Macy? You know what's the, who's going to take the lead, who's going to take the boat was going to be the boss of these will be interesting to see inter on the back of the Dhabi win against down in the last minute with our ecology. By the way facing each former club, he was a youth product, so it'd be very emotional for him, I guess, to face boss or not. Again, it's going to be very good game. Interesting game. You could expect maybe the Italians to play quite safe, quite defensive because it would be quite good resentful inter meanwhile, in groups, say PS g against a Napa, latest online PSU just the one win the site for the feet against a livable, not only unbeaten the biggest test them, though Joe's proper task, isn't it? Shoots debts on Sunday. We talked about the classical footba surround run Madrid. There's also the classic for PJ going to say on Sunday night. So back to buy game for two hundred real. I if he's like a week of truth for to Holland steam to see how they cope with this, not politic and the loans routes you coming back to the to the prince and some Caveney will face again is former team. It'd be interesting to see name and in bay facing these defenses. Well, in for Napoli there's such a strong position after beating Liverpool, a home in in much to they, they can get at least even just a poignant piracy, be very good result for them before facing the Parisian in Naples into time. Just remind the other fictious Samara in group a Peru dominant had a great start to the season Champions League at domestically as taking on plenty arose. That is gonna be a great encounter in Germany. Meanwhile, in group d galatassary against Shankar, locomotive. Porter. Shot with this tweet which is from quote unquote Arado you mind? Well, I don't know about the talian Spanish is it's always good to see you. My friend, my buddy blessings out. It's all great. This is off to the match after the game that pull Popa lost one nail. Do you have a problem with this. I just wonder these. The players actually feel his body settling. We used to when you lost again or you had a bad performance. Certainly the coaching staff, if they see. Dec- a picture late. So soon after the game, I can assure you the next day the next time they show me, what do you think you really don't move all? I mean, I guess today it's just not light up phones to do that. Even if. And I'm sure you the same. You'd never even dreamt to do Inle. I've got more interested in poor plays on the field. This isn't a big deal. More interested in how pleasant feel not what color pope was hair. A stylish here is not what rings by this. With someone who's just being you off the games for over a friend has just I don't. I don't have a big issue with just got more actually we're, he's putting on how teams plan have you gotten. Have you gotten to speak because he's not playing well, and because this team is not playing well either, then there are certain things that I don't think you do. One of those things is taking buddy buddy pictures. Just the perception of all this not grade. The upticks are great, and I don't think mine to say United need any more drama. This will create some jobs. We're told Tokyo, would you told him say it's not a big deal. His old skill when it's not you anymore. Who cares. League in. To do with me. Screen.

Hello, and I'm very warm. Welcome into extra-time. Thank you very much for your tweet says, usually I'm wrong is with us as well Joel's during the cordray picture. We didn't have a chance to go to. You is storm in a teacup. With Gregg, not one. It's not a big deal to me. I can understand why the timing is wrong, but I guess wanted to talk about the photo that good friends about maybe didn't know that would put it on social media. It's difficult one. I mean, why spoke by going to review the foods such Corrado the ones that can put with you? Just it's a difficult one. Yeah. Okay, sliding. And you shouldn't be smiling because you just March. There's bigger issues on United right now. Then photo with the fun of his. Which is what which, what you said. Steed insane. Maybe that won't don't move on. Ladies and gentlemen move on. Then anyone on the panel avenue cocoa on his team. If you're a manager of any team, Chelsea must've pain laughing all the way to the when they sold him, didn't have a good game today. It's today. What he's saying, who will. What about Everton? He's a mistake in the tweet lows. Moving on from his thing. That you didn't have a good game today? Yes. This fall, what who gets Chev end of the day, he's put the ball in the back of the net primarily. But team don't get any opportunities then you can't blame them. Certainly food for school. There. It is. When you actually vented fall and unique, keep a hold of it. Yeah. When it does go to. Doesn't always stick very straighten. I would suggest you say. Very frustrated, but you say, smile. Surprising. Why this is a very good tweet. Why appears gene athlete, bouncer and development aplenty old on the same time? What's the point of Steiger and the kinko's and wait for doing it this song. For the first time, the champion is the. Stagger them if you call any of these three matches on early. Are you asking us. That's all. Today's. So I from what I understand the bigger games comb, if you if you if you make them the kickoff, you'll Zemo in revenue and you losing move yours as well from whoever showing the game because less people watching a game at six o'clock. Do I clock in the UK for example. So I think those big games tend to be prime time, which is eight o'clock, six o'clock when people are still at work or leaving work on their way home or things like this, which makes more sense for you to keep the biggest game probably time, you know, throw then then earlier on, that's what we have Bruce against. We're not tomorrow five example. And now PG not poorly or boss INTA. Hundred percent. Bob believe it was much day one, wasn't it? That was the kickoff Joel. Yeah, it was. It was quite. Game is not as big as as a boss, I believe, or even appears. This is just me. Steve Nicol you guys will say any Lester at home, but that was well cost, but form semi question is why we sing. He'll main stage now is it because he's handsome, listen to Emory because he was tracking back because if he doesn't, he's the team. Two hundred and forty characters. Oppressive Cameron. Don't try to read it. So what was it quite fight questions that question has Emory works out the way to get zeal ticking. I would. I would suggest you have to wait until. The big again to find that one. Oh. Because. That we will know whether Emmys actually. Getting the job done until the nostril into team that will compete FOX for forcible for the fall for the title is when the do perform this way against the best eight, there's no question. It's easy against teams. Oh, say to talk for easier against teams that you expected to be? I suppose the one thing he could see is that the end philosophy banger they could be anonymity. So the beaten teams are supposed to be right now, but to go any followed is a little premature. I would suggest this is from Steve Nichols Ben or account. What team do you support? It seems like everyone else supports the teams. They used the plane full, but I can never tell you support Chelsea energy. Made that crystal clear. More importantly, this note a burner account to keep telling. Question Joel's showing this team. Awful. What now. Oh, yeah. I see. We always get. I mean. I was gonna be the unit hostile fund. Oh, so. I'm being disrespectful to optional close up to the Mark. No, I think you think your sports on think, well, done Stephen. Okay. You. We need. We need. Teams as well. Red salt dodgers. World Series shocks read psalm silly. Coming home. Interesting. Think I think the pitching for the dodgers major steel this one away. Yeah. So it may not be coming home after coming home. Well, told you away on true using I. Yes, indeed have a lovely time. I will. I will. We will be on the next day should looking back those big games at gills made reference to the likes of PS g buying Napoli Dolan not see at the same time also rains at the same time. Well.

Men in Blazers 02/28/19: Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Pod Special

"This is Rebecca Lowe will Rebecca if you listen to sub optimal radio, and you on this thing to men in blazers on the NBC sports network. Welcome to a men in blazers pod special Manchester United season, it's been a remarkable human journey. I don't know if you remember this for the team had floundered under Joseph Marino's tumultuous leadership. They played football fuel by fair which left the maroon behind their big city rivals by December Kasmin eleven points of the top four. Enter a hairy when we needed one can't take manager Oleg Gunness skew a forty six year old Norwegian who arrived to save the day for United in the clubs hour of need just as he had so many times before during a plane career in which he was one of the greatest super subs. The Premier League's scene. I had the opportunity to sit down with the club's training. Grounding Carrington he turned up in his training gear. And he will over Megyn Kelly by telling me that he should've worn a blazer. And then he went on to talk about how we all Mace move to Everton at the end of his career but away if you listening at still take you we need you now probably more than ever the whole show as at two pm on Sunday inside the mind of Oleg gonna soul SCO to now along it's remarkable. Oh, he's remarkable. Despite the fact that I'm in March as a beautiful. Beautiful thing to hair mostly because he's a leader. We're very rest at of skills that there is of course, the management the psychological the experience the tactical ability you need to run any great club. But I think if you listen carefully. You'll also hear another thing the modesty and humility which carries himself rare qualities for any leader even rare equalities for Premier League manager. But take a listen because I believe it's with those two traits that he's orchestrated one of the most remarkable midseason turnarounds, criminally Tennessee. Only gonna soul skill. You. A bull in Christian som in nineteen Seventy-three efficient oil town on the west coast of Norway. You learn the game on a Sunday gravel pitch near your home. And you want the Senate by your elite skill a wasn't boom with a studied finishing even at school. Scoring goals was all I thought about the way you tell it what you want and you experience so much success as a play that it came from training grinding halt work. Definitely my dud was probably my biggest influence because he was very wrestler American or Roman Greek or wrestling. When I was born he had to retire because I took too much of his time at partly I've seen all this paper clips on. He was my idol. He told me about his work rate, and what it did to become the best at something. You need to be one interested in it to you need to work at it. I've fit ball. I love scoring goals and a low of practicing score goals you arrived as a relative unknown Old Trafford for Norwegian club, mold in nineteen Ninety-six. But quickly became the baby faced assassin Manu time and time again would be the club savior stepping in when United needed Ye with belittling most famously in the nineteen thousand nine treble winning season you with a hero who delivered the winner ago, which is being called the most famous United strike oval time. Deep into stoppage time in the nineteen ninety nine champions the final when I watched you as a plant wish you mindset, no causes ever lost new. Game is over new season lacks, meaning more or less because it was quite a few times came on fifteen minutes, twenty minutes half an hour. And that's my time to put ninety minutes of work in on take back. What I lost, you know, that final I was very happy with the monitor Assad. Good season scored quite a few goals, but it Teddy Sheringham on before me you'd scored only four or five goals that season to sixteen seventeen I was angry. And that's in my character. I want to show him how he was wrong. It was never about anything else. I need to make sure that he's with me. And I remember after we won the game. When he comes in holding my shoulders. What I was thinking is you deserve this, boss. I like to show you the I should have played more. Don't need all the price. I need that little bit of stick. You get really annoyed by. So I'm gonna show you you showed us time and time again, you spent eleven years Old Trafford six from your league titles two hundred and five appearances as you say many of them were off the bench became known as a super sub. But this strating is that must have been as a player. All that time. You spent on the bench watching games players, different coaches might not have been the perfect preparation city on the bench later as manager. Was that way you decided, you know, I'm going to be a coach I've always been mad about soccer say of always thought that I'd stay in the game. At never thought. I'd be a manager of a took club. I never thought I would be a player for Tope clip boats. But I always wanted to improve and be better and better and better. So when I was on the bench to things built is that character, mental strength, and it built my knowledge and how the best seat in the stadium that could watch the game from this close away. You wouldn't just watching the gave you a watching one of the masters. You had a system the injury in the loss phase of your career to woods end. The you started to keep a book, which documented Alex, Ferguson's methodologies. You said you down these comments how we treated the team after wins and losses. What would you say the most important lesson? You learn from watching ceramics such a keen on so many things that I learned yours look forward want to improve in that hunger to win is about that winning mentality. You can't just be happy by okay? I won't at one time. No, you want the next time when we won the treble in one thousand nine. Yep. He celebrated he went to dinner with us maybe for an hour. Then he went on. I think next morning alrea. The planning the next season. Yep. Part to cellphone the buck. Well, don't and move onto the next one. That's one of the things that I've learned from his personality and mentality as leader within again, Hardiman, boss the way treated us in new every single one of us how to get the best out to you. He knew he was pissing me off, pardon my French full. I think he knew he got the best out of me by doing some other players. He controlled the more in the didn't want to make them angry because he knew there was a different way of getting them to perform the best. He knew exactly how to get the best outta me. We really came on our show and said that ceramics always knew to speak to renovate will nanny to show that way he wanted. True. None of once. And I mean address in I'm sitting there waiting what's he gonna do now winning the game comfortably and not sent of. And he turns your own and he gives him one of the biggest roller gins ever because it's personal with him. But he wants the ten to dig him out of the on one three one. I think so he was muster of psychology. He was a master psychology. But the was something between you in this club. That's all say remarkable. Even as a player, I mean football fans feel different to play is in terms of the club and their relationship to it for many players. It's a career. It's a job. But watching you on the ouija television after your official farewell testimonial was unbelievably moving when you break down in tears you like he's love this club. Manchester United it looks like it runs. Deep figures. It does for the most passionate fan describe for me in your room woods this club. Manchester. United means the money, and I did it does fail. Special to be here. I want to be loyal to the clover wanna give everything for the loop. And I did a supply is the only time I've cried on telly definitely just broke down. Just one of them things that you just how much of I experienced through this club with all the fantastic people. I work with. It's the second time. I've cried I think the first one was went out of my wedding speech. When I was talking about my wife's none and are going to be the third. No, I don't think so you moved into coaching as soon as you playing days with finished first as United forward coach then reserve coach before moving back to Malda to become manager in two thousand eleven team that never won the Norwegian flight, and then now one hundred plus year history, but on the they save it two successive title campaigns, two thousand eleven two thousand twelve you ahead hunted by Cardiff City in two thousand fourteen midseason part of my reasoning behind saying yesterday. If was yes, it's a challenge. But if I do well there, maybe money United. We'll call me. That's how my strange mind works. I want to be successful at a difficult place. I want to show everyone I can do despite of challenges. That didn't go to plan. The blue birds were relegated after finishing in. Twentieth. Was sexually afterwards. Having lost less than nine months when you left cold. If did any of you think mccrum elite management career just died with it not just a part of me everything I didn't want to go back to England. I didn't want to come back to primarily. It's been a very bad experience. It made me so much stronger as a manager as a human being as the coach you went back to mold and then lost the Semba two thousand eighteen United came cooling. I mean. I mean, one of the mold zone directors describe the difference between the two clubs. He said if you know, you tater emotion, Lena, mold of a rowing boat. Is that fair way to describe the difference between the two club? Oh, yeah. It's massive in size and in the immediate tension. But then again for me, I've called molded moulders. I've been there now for. Six and a half years more or less, my model of how people club should be run is United how we should play is money United. So I've been practicing until I came here to be fair who called you from United. We surprised, of course, priced at woods asking you to take charge of the team. It takes two seconds to think I might read it. Yeah. Because I do feel ready, and I did feel ready and part of me says it's a massive job. It's home. This is a lot more comfortable coming here. Don't get me wrong. It's not a comfortable job. But it's where I feel at home. It's where I feel. I get challenged challenged by good players demanding funds. Fantastic. Funds owners want to be successful the whole club. We wanna be successful. Part of me immediately. Yes. No, no doubt. Whatever. Absolutely. No. It's just what you do when they come calling on born to be part of money. United after say the life works in remarkable ways. On wednesday. December nineteenth you were announced as Manchester. United caretaker manager, you know, heated they we're off to their worst ever Premier League. Start through seventeen games. Just twenty six points. A Kasmin eleven points off the top for the team, lack creativity. They with the -fensive Lee vulnerable worse. There was a super worth resemblance discontent storylines of arguments. Full outs pouring out of the locker room. Phil Jones told the press they roll -ing stock and Saint marina. When his last press conference said the players lacked intensity and physicality when you took over the club, what was your immediate assessment of the locker room culture when you arrive. First thing we did have a meeting about the players and sets the expectations where it should be because they are in that dressing room for a reason their money United players never ever forget that they're wearing this punch. And to be signed for money United. You've got to have something special. And I think maybe some of them had lost that's part of money United because when you're not successful. It might be easy. To doubt yourself that's human nature. We install this to them, and you could feel straighter remembering why assigned for money United when they signed for money United. And we just put the demands on them that it's up to you to show it you return to a team that has a twenty allay legend banner Old Trafford in your on your first game as Manchester United manager as fate would have. It was at co. They're exactly the way all of a couple of seconds before. Marcus rash. Vid. Spencer free kick into the corner. United wins onto school for the first time in the leaks in two thousand thirty immediately. Look like an apex predator tat with self confidence and abandoned after the game a loved you Komen's. You said football is easy. If you've got good players. You know, he did have the same play. As before you arrived in your mind. What changed? In their minds, quite a few things changed because what we asked them to do go and attack ongoing show your skills going express yourself because there was no fair. I'm here until Asama on. I'm not going to go back into summer thinking, why should have told him how they're how pleased. I am to be a part of this admired these players from back home. My kids do admire these players got World Cup winners the best goalkeeper in the world here. So you just tell them to go out there and expressed that talents, and they did you had nothing to lose. They had nothing to lose. But I want understand some of the minute shy of the changes that you made starting with pool poker who've been in the Nick merit. You know, heated for the first half of the season. He played the role of underperforming. Disgruntle misfit alienated marooned on the bench. We're rumors have moved back to Ventas rumbling. But even before you took over you publicly said if. You were the manager you build a team around him. You had a relationship with him from your telling hey reserve coach wants the first thing you said to him you'll first conversation when you return this December. I congratulated him would cope. He's a world win say full from tastic. I'm so happy for and I've a world win. So that's great. But then now, let's get to money ninety. Let's get you play. What did he say to you about how he felt about the club? I wouldn't really speak about you know, let the possibly the pasta. And that's now look forward because we had to make sure that we perform to the standards that we expect don't dwell too much on the past. Marcus Rushworth he'd been in. And I said the team wing minute a strike of the next seem to be playing with fair. You've said the you given him quote a little bit of the now that you once had inside the box. I'm talking about the little moves you make to get free that little bit of this infants go can you describe them protest? I actually met Marcus by coincidence because I went over to see the young boys game in the Champions League when we won in extra time, and I met Marcus and Jesse in the corridors after the game and had two or three chances markets are not game on a spoke to him, you snatching things just settling down and relax. You be fine month later, I'm working with them. And then you just reiterate what you've said to earlier calm down. So you'll be fine because you getting into positions too, many chances are missed because you stress when you wanna finish I need to get rid of the ball as a start. You got more time than you think. He started off as you said free kick off the three minutes schools. That's a great start versus a partnership fecta Lindell defensively, you know, if it had just two clean sheets before you arrived. Lindelof been a wreck Jamie Carragher said he doesn't belong at this level. You couldn't charging around like a will be a thrown ball the on the line. One changes. Have you made tactically in the back had a tough time to start with pace? Really come get. Now, it's one of them victory. One of your strains carry out the bowl from the possible properly, and it's been allowed to do that we've had a buck for had different partnerships, which I own the sun is difficult, but I've sat down with him and in mind. Norwegian him in Sweden. It's a nice to get that connection as well. With plays that we can speak our own language. Sometimes I think that makes him feel more comfortable as well. Victors fantastic. Boy, he's gonna have a baby soon. It's showing on the pitches. Well, he's Mitch. During it's not easy to England is played in Portugal. Played for Sweden yet money. United is a different level. It's a different demands on your shoulders, you all the funds in the world. Everything you do scrutinized is other great mentor in slot slot helped him so much mentality. Anthony Marshall for the first half of the season. See miserable talked about wanting to leave the next he sending a five year contract charging through Hof the failed to score on his also by French TV how you done it said about you only told us about tricks that he picked up as a player, and how lucky we are to be part of United which makes me win though. Like, could you do what you've done Manchester United and the other club, or is it because of your history, you'll knowledge of Old Trafford tradition, and like to believe if could happen anywhere. I think that with the history I've got with a connection with the club with the stuff. I work with them play with some of them. Suddenly now, they call me boss knows stop that. 'cause I'm only we've known each other for fifteen years before you don't start calling me off now. So I don't think it would be possible for me to explain to anyone how much it means to play for specific club as much as it is for money United. I can relate to them. How it does feel what it means to play for this club? Of course, I played from the best monitoring the world. And how so many good memories on? They should be happy that they are here. There's no better place to play football. However, you've done it. You know? No, he did not like a completely different squad to place. A so you interviewed by Gary Neville, pre-match a couple of weeks ago. And he said give me your secret to success. It wasn't millennia as well. For a few months. That's what he said. You said there's no secret. You've just got to enjoy yourself. And Gary Neville said it didn't work for me. Linda, isn't that? Simple. Is it about the connection between joy and confidence? Yeah. Of course. It's good players. It's good players. You can call it a good place to I think few decent players that. I'm not sure if the Valencia DNA L of Gary I used to sit next to him in the dressing room for seven years. You know, you. You hates him is knowledge is fantastic. I'm sure if he really decided to be manager he'd be fantastic. But he doesn't have that passion doesn't what he wants to do. What's fascinating is football is no place for rooms. It didn't work returning for share it, and you cost away. He's a hairy. There are men. Manchester. United legends you dream about management fill level, Gary Neville, rowing gigs. But it's you that came back as you have as a player a savior when the club needy is it about you. That's made it would use singular when I'm just being me. That's what I've always been a player as a coach as a manager us dont. You've just got to take me. I'm the feud things. I'm good at a few things. Tried to hide things. I'm Bata by having complimentary stuff around me authenticity, just being yourself. That's the secret you get found out in whatever work life. You do if you try to be someone else. And I know that at times before in my career say Cardiff to try to be so that I wasn't because I was in an environment that I wasn't too comfortable. I wasn't used to this is an environment. I'm used to. And I've got nothing to lose. It's fascinating this environment. Because in another interview, I heard you say when you got players like we have with pace poker? Marshy Al Sanchez. Romilly rash word. He said that's how we played with on deco, Yorkie, joy York gigs. -i Ryan Giggs, David Beckham down the sides. How much are you a man who's Paul the history of this club remaking, the model of the past in the present off through the most Doman them in English football. I've got to say that we have an obligation as money United player. We have to play a certain way. That's the way I've been brought up. That's the way the class ninety two with Beck's and gig. They've been brought up we have to attack quickly. We have to detain the funds. We have to at least make the effort on you go to sprint forward run forward. It's the easiest thing in the world to be the best that's Ronin on work, and it can still work in more than I truly believe. My philosophy is to win games football. You've got to pass it forward. You've under on forward. You gotta get inside the box. You don't score if you're outside. You gotta get into books. You can see quite a few goals now pull scored his midfield runes under Herrera against Chelsea. You gotta arrive in the box, and you're gonna make effort. There's no reason why the United players shouldn't be the hardest work in player in the world. In a way, you stood Manchester identity that they lost Windsor, Alex, Ferguson left. I mean in your own words, what is that identity? It's just Monday night and should always take risks. You should be brave. You should be confident. You should be homeboy. You should just give your all the time. You won't the ball. You want the ball? If you winning one losing one nil. So many players in the world you see when the winning five nail. Suddenly, then they look like the best player in the world. If the one down suddenly nowhere to be seen if you're one down at money, and I did that's when you character comes out and say give us the ball create something here. That's what we're trying to provoke into the layers. And it's a winning identity only. I mean, could you imagine, you know, heated going twenty nine years winning the title as Liverpool? They queue even conceive of such a thing. No couldn't be in our minds. But then you've got to be very aware about the history and football because if you just take her I off the bowl just a little bit. You'll slip every single day. Away from the top where you should be. So it's about demanding that every day you come in. Give your best stunned. You've got to set the standards, which is what you talked about ceramics tenacity of winning taking nothing for granted. Ask you. How is your identity? Ceramics changed? Now that you're the money. Strange isn't it when he comes and visits. He comes to my office which used to be his office. But I've got so much respect for him. He's so knowledgeable eastern time is no one better to ask for advice and important piece of advice. He's given you since December. It's like when I played for him. It never felt like work cause training coming into this place. Every day was an enjoyment. You had to enjoy coming in. And that's one of the first things he said to me you've got to make sure the players enjoy Komen in under stuff they enjoy coming in. So it's going to be a place where you feel you can express your tributes. If it's a good human being is good football. We've got to be together here as one team. It's all been a mouthful to want to say one of the most remarkable in-season midseason turnarounds. I've ever seen ground does manager Mulder mold in the Norwegian top flight relegation at card. It's no. It's no atypical superclub manager resume when you're driving home of the winning games, all the movements. Even you feel shocked by your success. Even you have to pinch yourself. I don't really reflect that motion thing. Well, we're my now it's where I want to be always want to improve all is want to give my best there. And then if it's Molder in Norway, or if it's when I coach my gills team on the sixteenth. I wanna give everything I have there and then to them because I've been so privileged in my life life to achieve. What I did. I love seeing people being successful. You love seeing other people being successful. You have been Paul of successful team of the successful team you room success. How does that feel can you describe the emotions you experience when the strength for them breakout with that old as the whale? Tell me how good does it feel stone ruses stone roses from tussock music, by the way, the phones best in the world achieved so much in my football in career more than ever dreamt of. I'm never in front of my thoughts at I need to be successful. That's just not me. You were once what it was like to hear your name somebody, you know, heated fans when you replay. And you said I feel proud but a bit embarrassed as well, I think to myself wine me a little man from christiensen legend that Old Trafford. Can you believe now that in your words a little man from christianson is the manager like returning hairy from the golden age? That's how it is. Just one of them things that you get on with it. Do you do your best? And if you do your best no one can look at me and say, he didn't I know that when I look at myself. In the mirror of the my best today, and you don't Jin deflect the question by just moving. Why should I get carried away? It's not the time to get excited or carried away. And you can always do that. When you finish a job reflect when you you get the sokoll, you do well, whatever you've retired as a player you get injured. You sit back and reflect more than new reflect when this games to win. All the next game was the most important game. This nothing becomes history. Quicken game of football. To your continued success. It has been a human one that to what you this season Old Trafford wish carriage. Thank you, very very much. Enjoy this. Like, really? I mean, the wool the football. It's an unforgiving place. But it's almost impossible not to have been enchanted by Oli Kennesaw skills. Glorious return to Old Trafford he is a block that clearly truly adores almost Laker fan. The club that he wants to played for and mentions United fans around the world. They revere him as a legend in coined and the power to me of all story. So far is that ultimately transcends foot Boyd's life-affirming? He's a blue who began two thousand eighteen as a manager of a small club. I mean, he's not going to thank me for it. And knock you as club a backwater and ended it almost type will hayride returning to his spiritual home in its hour of need to salvage assise and teaches us critical life lessons, remarkable life lessons. Always be ready. Be ready for anything. You never know what life's going to bring opportunity can arrive at any time. And when it does sees lake socio the whole show from which this is just a taste as this Sunday at two pm March the third after the Dobie secure name because it is a beautiful beautiful human piece of narrative as I said, despite the fact that I am in courage.

26 - Silva Sacked, Arsenal Shocked by Brighton & Rashford Spoils Mourinho's Return to Old Trafford

"Hello and welcome to the to Robbie's podcast with me. Robbie Mustoe and him royal reacts into Mid Week Round of fixtures and England's premier league is much fifteen my friend and of course in the primitive. There's never a dull moment so much to get to in this episode of our show so Some of the topics second in charge at Arsenal was a bit of a disaster against Brighton. jose-maria's returned to Old Trafford was certainly spoiled by Marcus rushing. Should look into a little bit of that Manchester City and Leicester of course trying to keep pace with Liverpool. We skipped last pod but we are going to go back to underappreciated forms of the week from the prevalent for this weekend in this show but first of all my friend we have another firing ramifications of the Merseyside. Wt opole swept aside Everton. I'm filled five two and of course today Thursday this confirmed that Marcos over has been fired from his position. What are we thinking? Well we think we I never liked to to hear money. Just getting the Robie. He's profession Obviously he's trying to do his best foot. When the look at the Fox eighteen months in the job tune in sixty four million spent on players eight hundred eighteen eight teams in the league nine losses this season? Rugby was a short of him in the Dobie. I think he was a when the fifth goal went in that he was starting at the pitch. taunted broken you look like a man who was a little bit bereft of idea and motivation and I almost feel it doing him a favor and I know we have this conversation nation weekend. You said maybe it's not quite the time. I think that the way that the the the defeated and the way he almost carried him Alpha look to me as though he news time as well. Yeah five goals again against crazy. First African seated four in that first half. Let's just get this out of the way with I rob wishaw choice his full. Are we sure that this squad of players and a lot of new players been brought him by Masa Brands. The new director of football. That was at the same time as Marcus over. Came into Everton but then we saw the with another manager with this current squad. They the the next guy can get a lot more of this team and fly away the station. So let's just got Sean. And when we say here them we saved thousands of miles away from football club. And we've both been in clubs where you only really know when you when you in training ground around the thing but we we've gotta make a cool and I'm GONNA make my call from from this distance as I can only go rob on body of work. I saw six months of whole saw an interesting looking coach got hold delegate. I saw not more than six months at Wofford. I started okay and then fell of quite badly. And he left the football club and come to Appleton. I've seen eighteen months to Everton with whether they will always play is whether the choices writing thing. I've not seen enough rob. I've not seen enough consistency. I've not seen enough development of not seen enough improvement over without eighteen months to to give give Marco silver the benefit of doubt it stage and yes maybe another month would tell but I think the games coming up against much awesome Chelsea might have things looking a little bit worse than better in the next. You Games oh no. They've got to League Cup quarter-final against Leicester City. But I just feel as though. Oh It's some clubs. It feels the right time in this for me. Feels like the right time Three transfer windows two hundred and sixty four million dollars of new players to come into the club. I mean talking about a club that struggling to get it right even though they've got a majority shareholder in and fired Mush Shit Machinery. The that's a lot of money and they still can't get it right. Name me one player. WHO's GonNa Football Club? WHO's better than he was when he signed him? Dina maybe we shall ascend. Platini's issues came into club. He's been fine name meals as a goalkeeper kicked on and and become an England number one. Listen I'm struggling. I'm struggling is. Why does that almost lead? To pull the problem you you could go to Leicester City we for the next twenty five minutes talking about improvement there. Is it time for prove manager. Marcus over you went through his previous work. It's a hope. Hope Manager. Hope it works. We hope that what we've seen is going to pan out to be to be a great manager. It's football club is almost like some of these manager appointments are permanent sides the big ones. They're hoping that they've got greatness that they've got a guy that's going to be great now as we look forward. Isn't it time for evidence to hire somebody. That's kind of proven successful this one trophies now on another there's not many of them around this willing and able to come to Everton right now But but in terms of the next guy that come into football club is mass brands. Making that decision machinery wanted Marco Silva badly stop to this whole thing alleged poaching from one Mauka silvers at Wofford is him. Doing this is making a call. We know the muscle brands just yesterday. said the he wants a little bit of patience with the manager And you know it wasn't his appointment because they came on the same day pretty much knows at the club where you might say the Mercer Brunswick this let me bring in a guy. I'm not getting that sense in and who's going to pick the next manager up. Well the interesting thing. Will you say by expediency in the You. Just I think you have to take time. You have to have a vision of what you want what you're trying to achieve and you have to have a vision of the guy that's coming in Com- fulfill those those those With a good. CV with a decent evacuated recorded. One things went to awesome full. Didn't really work so it's still a gamble. When when you go into a higher end I think you look at people? Like in the spoils Brendan. Rodgers is is the current kind of kind of topic. But you look at the type of work he's doing you look at the place. Would you look at the improvement anything. That's so we now. I'm not saying gray and plotting. We're talking about him because we we've just seen the Brian game and he's just signed a long term contract to the football club. That looks like I keep saying this guy's GonNa be with four five six years. He's not right for ravaging but what I'm saying is. Brian decided in that position. They've got a guy it seems he works. It seems hopefully look. Now they organise your pool team through the next four or five years average enough to do and find the same thing fine Nag guy and then support team of the next three to four years to build this for resoluteness football club again. Is He's in terms of going forward for Everton and we'll get into too if his emergency is not yet You you hiring that situation or so somebody AH rule food people out here so Eddie House is always thought about the evidence and next jump up for him. Is it the right time. What is it the I would say? It's it's the right club for Eddie. How come to when the situations right to do so is a situation right right now forever to say you know what we are in the the season to try and get 'em right now? I don't think you got him right now. I think if you believe Eddie House a guy and this was why would you get them right now because I got a year and a half minutes out of this right now I think he could become messy could become protracted. I don't think that's what you need. If he's right guy and he's much all I would do find the decision that gets me to now and the season and bring him in a bring him in long-term talk about what we're GonNa do and he's got now. He is an interesting one because because Eddie House Times with the club very streaky they have wonderful then on particularly great wonderful. And you probably save right now. If he's the right guy rope going game. Forget forget streaky. Form going game. If you believe in these. We'll have to wait to the summer. You have to wait till the summer rougher Benitez Go get him now is coaching in China. Anna Chinese Super League as just finished beginning of December. Now I worry about him I think it is for him. I'm not him for him or the Everton fans probably be both but more for him for what he I mean He. I love to come back to the He's still got home. According to the historian honey. Great sense perfect in terms of is expensive. He doesn't the liberal connection and he's like go get it done. Yeah I just feel for me I I I may be wrong on this one and funds. Listen they can let us know whether they would it. except I've heard both on media read stuff to the phones and stuff in the UK. And I've heard fans come on some of them saying like there's no way you're never GonNa win by listening to that and the other guy that we should talk about the up I think is favourite. Don't take David Moyes. Yeah which seems to me rob you go in a big roundabout you going back to a guy you're going by. I remember the last few months Avidsson and now taste a stodgy. uninspiring an entertaining. It was and then you go on a lemon spray of different managers Martinez and Kundun. mm-hmm and everybody else last time as well. It wasn't too. I mean what David Moyes will bring is he's not too much excitement. SAFETIES Para Hannon's money knows the football club will understand the football club it just in Li- of Brenham Rogge's being lasting doing club being good inside the porch and those kind of people. You're not getting out with David. Moyes you get in some regular steady football that will keep you in the in the League league and some odd is we talked about on the show or they're all still you still think you'd go back to him go. I'll tell you why go back to some. I take the time to get this decision and some buys me time and some is a safe pair of hands. So I'm saying give this guy six months after giving humans contracts until got again make the League Sam which is what you do and then I can now work. How how the guy that will want? Well we'll keep her of of course in a close on this story say to this weekend. He is three primary teams. Now is an all looking for a new manager. We'll get to some of the other ones as well but it's massive story. Of course it's emergency Dhabi Liverpool with five changes Rubio and we talked about this the front three players needed suggested and rotate at some point. I I'll be honest. I didn't expect this game for him to start doing that. But both Jerry rig played at a huge impact in the game booed. I mean isn't it. Isn't it great for the manager that you can make that switch change against his is local rivals and you still brush them aside and you have the reassurance the squad the players on the sideline chomping at the bit there in great shape during great fell. They come on and do the business millionnaires while a Milan. I mean it's it's so happy. That was huge. It was music to know that you've got players who are keeping training competitive. We've looking at the opportunity to comment on these a bit of players who don't want to the group down that this sitting on the sides there see what's going on now. It's my turn tune I'm not GonNa let let the rest of them down. It was huge for you. A bit cooler gets to Shuki. Guess what Monet again. Outstanding to assist and a goal. And just as you said the one thing we saying let's get these from three a bit arrest the NFL club and of course the players arrested. They need that rotation so money continues to be severe outstanding player Liverpool. Football Club right now on the back of a brilliant season last year is kept it going rob. And that's hard hunt for that sort of player. The attack in the flare the pacy curate gifts goalscoring types to be consistent You say most struggling to be as good as previous seasons. He's doing it just a star player and just rolling them forward to another story. Rub The this week. Of course the Balladur. Yeah and Van Dyke such a fantastic season last year is influence on that team and taking them all the way to the to the top of European football. Are you surprised that he didn't win it. Of course no no messy one again is six surprised although rob it's very relative. Defend to win the ballon. d'Or something thing that goes against him. I'll go beyond him is not good as isn't good and it's not. I'm not sure. The Bilan Total representative of best play often depends who you play for what you win you. Profile also. He was gracious visual. UNDOCK talked about you know. We'll have to salute greatness and messy is one of the greats but he's league right. Yeah he's the books Veggie van Dyke. You know running close and you know I think on another day with the different directives have gone so Lupul. Flying continued to be at the top into mazing performance. Fourteen winds fifteen. The permanent is stunning. Stunning points it is easy. Yeah forty five. I'm just one draw. Yeah this is. This is number that we take time we never saw. I asked him because I still something. It is. Bang on Paul with one city after fifteen games when the hundred points the bang on online without. I mean it's levels that we've seen before levels that were struggling to comprehend the low levels being seen at the Emirates stadium. Rubio the game that we've just come off. We've watched asna against Brighton. Freddie Lemberg second marching charge first game Sunday nausea way to two issues with counterattacking sacking being wide open Gung Ho barnstorming games against teams. That you shouldn't be and to be fair. The game differently very much. The by four was the back four more more mid field a deep a deep y plays I. I could see what he's trying to do but even in doing that. You know you're going to take away for some of the attacking play but even play more. Defensively they still look shaky and then second off was different. They scored and being wide open again in. Anybody could have one in Brighton one. How much of a mess a win this football club rob? How big job is it for the next guy? How important is this appointment? When was the future Freddie lumbergh is? Is this surprising you of how bad this asshole team is now without emory by the way. Yeah and it's continuing to look awful. What what what I learned from the Game Rob is this isn't it? This isn't a testing ground to manage. Awesome Football Club. This is the the job. Requirement for an experienced well-groomed considered nosy nosy. He's training new teams. Nosy structure knows what he wants. And I feel a little bit solely for Freddie because we talked about Sunday. The Georgia to with knowledge. Rest Day Monday. They'll we'll Tuesday Wednesday games easy. Nothing's going to change in two or three days. Did try looked bit different for twenty minutes. I'm thinking that's a little bit better when they went to this is this is GonNa Rub twelve months of work and on that on that route you're gonna find some of the players and not good enough so you're gonNA have to make it cools on them as well keeps making mistakes keeps on doing the same things wrong. You'RE GONNA have to go certain plans to go. There's a there's a big transition needed needed football club. Huge Greenwich Jacka played. Doesn't look interested made some mistakes complain at the end to the game looks unhappy. So it's a real mess right now telling you how you solve this. If you're the owner any this hierarchy on the football side of it you you go. flat-out to get Brendan Rodgers. If that means you have to wait to this to this summer. If Freddie's stained charge then finished in the top for the club is right now with this team they are not the nowhere near that ten points off literally bigger than that. There's there's no way I'm is December December Rubio and it sounds it. Sounds so depressing. The whoever you know just limp them through and Between now and in the summer you're on the case of Brennan Rajas and you're trying to persuade him to come because he's he's he he. He fixed the guy he's the guy but he doesn't fix. This isn't a quick fix the same dreading going in lasted. Let's do a Abacha drills then also this is a long thing security Sikora she was born in Davos Louise Centre-back Partnership for the Premier League Non Scientific Corner Show. There's no point ship at the football club. Hold the Mike play with somebody else. But holding plus any of the ones that is not a cent about partnership and the other thing won't be an you make a good point in terms of raw ron. Tough six months also GONNA have to do both personally. Wrote the League. Still have a chance to Champions League. Football anybody that could come. Straightway Rubio maxine luxury now. Let's just keep some pros and cons for him. Proven winner Experienced managed big time playing. Thank you got a lot of things. Obviously English is language. Could little bit difficult start. Play will be very different pragmatic. We know that defensive other than also fans care at the moment about what changes if they wanted to make a change right now on the people that are available sabbatical that. He said he doesn't want to break. And think I mean you've got to listen. You gotta go in and pull klopp was wasn't he didn't commit full younger will. Everyone's expected to break US could take from the game so you going to sell him the project. That's your job. Anybody Patrick Vieira's been talked friendly. Dixon would would like to see him in charge. It's a little bit. I think where they all. It might be a little bit too much. Patrick and we love Patrick and I think at one point. I'd love to see Monje not great club. Plum not sure feels like it needs a more experienced hund- `and to to really gal football clothing. Shake it down because at the moment rob they all. I think you will flailing when when you describe me. Midfield it feels floundering lounge floundering floundering. Yeah I I was R- I just been so surprised I thought asked or this season. Could you do okay. And and here's the other worry still pick up a few reports and then you see some of the scenes with two plays walking off players unhappy if you will pop. Mika Myung scoring the goals he schooling talking about three or four the big bullies. That just keep an eye on that. If you continue to finish the contra doesn't yeah I just wanted to talk I mean all of a sudden if you if you you big key plays the plays you WanNa keep you malky plays. We're going to help you manage and that you can possibly get now now. which can bigger problems you know just quickly rubbing on a real big picture? Why something to what has happened from from the awesome good great days lack of how are we hear? Money was spent on lock full. I I gotta go right to the top of yeah go go right to the right to the top and a an owner which I feel. They haven't got the driving this club. That's involved every day. That wants to win desperate to win this this this organization Liverpool owners. Yeah everything comes to the top. We'll see it Monday nights we're going to talk about them Next actually you know the glades is and how much they want to win. We sing that. I minaj spent money misguided money. I just we both know rob because we played of course Highbury iconic chronic and the new stadium and is a giant of a football club. It's just I is a little sad when you look around the permanent now. Some of the clubs is just crazy. This league is crazy. You know a united and Spurs and ask now floundering in the Premier League. What struck me revenue after? We'd finished the game and you start looking at the table and fifteen games aimed in now. So we're getting a feel also football club of four points ahead of southbound from two struggling struggling team and they point I guess to a point where when when there's something wrong with your environment at the club and it's very whatever it doesn't doesn't matter what play quality of the environment is key and Sheffield united strong environment and some others that go into an environment we've seen teams relegated Rubio great teams the environment stink. Yeah and so besides find a way to stay up growing together where you always get some teams have been the permanent for a little while the and this year we have. We have Watson we have Everton right now on the bottom. Of course Adams has just their Norwich city that came up but it looks like struggling. But you know there's always a bigger club that stinks on them was the one that was awful from inside inside and I it's it's such destroying factor. Anyway let's not. Let's not depressed too much and also fans out there. I I really feel for you. Because you've had all those years of great success and then Vanga's overstayed his welcome a little bit and now. The transition is proven to be as difficult as it was from Alex. Ferguson is it's huge. It's a huge appointment for awesome football club going back to the elephants Manchester United Story Stories. I mean don't you just I love this league by the way Rob. We have another story. United of course Seeing Josie arena. Return with his new team. Spurs I thought Spurs is GonNa win. I thought Josie would have a plan. I thought they'd find a way to to count attack and to beat man united undergoing Socia- surprise mean united. Surprise Me Fred. Surprise me and you're right absolutely right. Where when he we've given him stick before? I'm these plastic Simple says they turned up. -solutely turned up and Josie Marina went to Old Trafford expecting to win the game of Muslim. E Boven Issue Oh candy Schmaltz down. He was shaking hands and pine people on the head in doing all the Marino. Ask things memo. Switzerland is team. Didn't the show. And that's very unlikely. Josie menial team in big games jozies teams turn on now. I thought they were out the tactics. Clever by by By the the James Against Tonga on one side Russia's only enough side. Okay on the other side. Mason Greenwood is a young centre forward of in obey in behind signed Scott met. Tommy is becoming a very important player in Manchester United Position. Yep and the energy and and again we we write notes the first thing it was like. Wow the fight up absolutely fight up and we've seen this before R-rubio and it could be a these worn off big games traffic they they. They jumped five levels and the question. You've coaching naturally ASCII as well. I'M GONNA minute. Why do this more often is it the manager? That can't poke poke them enough to motivate them. Each week is at the players. The young inconsistent. I've said it I've said it for the last four podcast. Well said you're not going to be some good some bad well. This was some good and it was very very good. Not Just Scott Mattamy. Fred was excellent in midfield tremendous energy tremendous legs. And as you said said they're those quick plaza have done. James did damage. I'm going to swing back to Josie real quick on the technical side of this because I think he got this wrong and I got it wrong. Lucas more. So this new Josie and the spurs the Spurs. GOP said it is going to slowly. Transition Team isn't going to change too much straight away. And in that regard he allowed human son and Lucas more to play really High Deli. Elliot's near to head to Kane. Surgery was a torrent absolute tarred against Marcus Mash Foot. Put and and an Moose's Oko was selected to play in the middle of midfielder. Eric was the player that came across. Obviously because happened nearly all the time. I'm to help surgery as ideal for me if he would've played and this is why I think the mistake was made masuko where Lucas was an erudite back. In Midfield showed Moussa Soco guarantee would have done a job in front of Marcus Rochford and that. That problem would have been snuffed out or wouldn't have even started and I'm surprised. ICED MAY BE JOE's as lack of trust of Marcus Ashworth didn't realize that he had in him. Yeah and yet. We just saw Marcus Russia's best game for united for very long time if not. That's why I wonder why because these plays were was shaking hands with Marina. When he was a few weren't to be seen motions restaurant mocks? Russia is one of them anymore. One of them pulled polk was no abby see with a limp down and BLUNK team. I'm sure if he plays you Josie Johnner the bus before he ah after Old Trafford I think it was just one of those lab. Maybe all he said. Hey this guy performance because he doesn't think we go players do you think that he's learned as we talked about. What what we learned from games and Joe's a went in there with a beer for swagger as he as he just is he just learned and a little bit about this whole spurs thing about this the spirit and about the personality encounter this team in difficult moments? It was a porch team performance performance. They they came out and I and I put one notes wells. This is a day of learning for Josie. Learn about some of the players you learn about how the team stick together out L.. They formulate him say it was nothing to do with our against the daily said that the the the the right mindset but Josie Marino. This might be the first sort of point while we see him. Saw Grab Labib. Ownership of these plays again. Was it back towards a little a bit more. Like the real spurs are right now possibly a warning to to make some changes. I mean this is all fantastic fascinating for us to see how he goes in Windsor. I I regained yet and we also say well this. This is what Josie can bring to this group and then this performance. I'm I'm not all about that. I think there's some middle ground. There give credit to the team that worked their socks off. By the way we're actions particularly best performances. I've seen jolly unites the same old stellar names. It wasn't the strongest eleven like you say intensity rate and they got. The crowd involve the foul felt like a real nice not that many of those it was an encouraging for the united. It's just okay. Yeah that's what we see I. I'm really surprised me and so five win. So much off this season. Winning month fish swims in in August against Chelsea best secondly moves in September against Leicester. The third one was in October against always. The full swing was in Bryant bought last month the fifth season was December number. One win each month so we've not seen anybody to box. We've not seen any kind of runs. A tool wins together. That's the challenge. Ah for Particular against those teams the strongest teams. Right they are better. When there's a challenge were fired up with Old Trafford funds are right behind straight informality? Because he's like when we need to we can. We can find it. We can step on find again. It comes down to is the nature of the squad the younger players that naturally sure do that or is it to the guys in charge rob that stands in front of them every morning training ground and gives them a meet in us a word and then of course. The manager monitor matched as well so But full marks deserved to win an a game. I'll be honest. I thought this is GonNa go there and find a way to win by being tough but spurs on fat tough. Thus what Josie Muniz go to bring to them. Yes shall we move onto City Modern City and less. We'll talk a little bit about yeah of course. AC AC yet. Before that we should preview Saturday. Twelve thirty eastern time is Manson diversity to the Monster Dhabi Robert just talked about Manchester United let us talk about mindset and and how good they were were excellent excellent signals. No Easy Sean dice. Lots of blood. He knows the bigger clubs. They're coming to that. The Lights didn't win on any gesturing Muss no full Bernie's but all those things can start affect the mentality in the focus. I they go about their business. I felt challenge for Second Bulls competitive. I thought they were threatening after all they. They showed a physicality when they need to and dominate with. Wait with brilliant counterattack football. It was a game one of the all round performance he's FC dominated Burnley billy absolutely absolutely nowhere. Pepper is best when when they not the ball around with pace and with quality of penetration. And then when Boone do get the ball they can only have it for like four or five seconds often awesome. That's that's PEPs football. That's what it's all about an I an I. Yeah I mean. It's pretty obvious that they were fantastic. In the Game Burnley Chasing Shadows Exhibition Football commendable performances. You saw like like fantasy goals and build up play. An intimate play The strike of Rodriguez performance in the middle of midfield was was masterful full Just absolutely fantastic and couple of players that we should talk about rob coverage as Zeus. And I've been having this feeling for a while. Now that he's ready to be a star he's ready to be a star. He's been Muncie long enough in that group of players and with this manager Asia. And he's got to be patient. He's out to learn about the physicality the primarily first hand. He's play games and you look physically strong powerful shop shop shop in the box. He can score different types of goals. Now it looks like with head is in an IT makes good runs. Of course you've got to be patient and if there's one player that you've got to be patient. So Joe Guerra. WHO's been a legend one? Make strong because we've ever seen I feel that he and a few others in terms of man's city Roberts in the future could be a really good team for young players coming through now and we'll come through Now we know the PEP. What's he got he's got he's got this this season one more season and let me just let me just an extended an extension? I JUST WANNA make an argument here for why he might do it. You look at some of the younger players and generally place. He doesn't. Yeah because I'm talking about almost not rebuilding but but going again within the different sorts here when you've got the likes of Rhodri Twenty-three Jaycees talked about Kuba Star could get tunnel goals twenty-two Bernardo twenty five and Helenio young fool by looks good at twenty to fill photo and coming through midfield but Nineteen Edison's young goalkeeper sunny twenty-three. It's come from injury. Studying turning twenty four Lepore twenty-five what I'm saying is that could we another reinvention of this team and it could be really really great. No I don't know whether encounter away with some of the younger players here or saying is Jay seuss Foden in Rajouri. But ARDO. They got a ton of football in them and again great experience they got great quality. I just wonder if the club and pep can see another another team starting to evolve. Well not they must depends on whether he sees future. Because I think he'll still. I think because of that you might might need a couple of old heads put. I mean people who all have done little bit just to go with them to be part of that group moving him forward fund and Dino. I heard something that they were saying for. Sure whether you'd contract Davidge Silva's GonNa go see Joel. Guerrero isn't going to be there forever. Nobody nobody loves a lot like Guera but actually putting your mate with bill raises his in jeopardy thing because I think similarly I think he's starting to take the seasons so but I think he's come. Do you know what what what what the biggest thing I think. When Esguerra leaves Jay Z's comes to another level and it's it's not the Joe Guero is the guy I don't think he's not personality? I don't think he one of them who dominate suggesting women but just having the presence of a gun. Lock Guero Wairoa. I think when you Gabriel j Zeus slightly puts you. You'll you'll you'll just seconds later. You're the second hitter when that guy goes in. I'm now well the Guy I think it gives you. I think you might think he'd get gives you an inch cudi become complacent. Oh Rob. Is there a counter argument. If he's if he's the number nine the main strong drop-off forever young play can say that but he's going to leave position he's hungry is in PEPs team and he has an opportunity to to become the next to Guero. I think saw to be the next thing. That's going to Jive in particularly if pep Guardiola. Yes yeah stays on his former club. And that's what men's city hierarchy. I'm sure they're on. They're trying to make him do that. Billion Dollars in the invested in. That doesn't the this is going. This is big time now There's football club. Going for this. Global dominance into the mothership is mounted entity that is got to keep winning trophies. Yeah and the Ports GonNa be back. Apparently like into February march run. I just you know we won't get to knee jerky see we often do. But that was that was pretty impressive among city. And they ain't gonNA laugh my other. They're not going to let you know they've had some bad days. If drop points defensively. They're not the same same and that's the reason why they won't win. In the Champions League unless Lepore is back But that was good to watch an purring man city you know. I don't know whether we've we've seen over many Ah Better when their plan at their best to do is fun to watch Burnley and I know you know. We're not getting carried right away. They can't miss you know no one's city Robbie mustoe continue to win football matches to nil against Wofford furred Jamie Vardi with a penalty kick teams monitoring with goal game from deep linemen field position. I mean there's still he keeps on going and Brennan in fact I believe what came out and said he you know why. Why would I wanNA leave this football club? I'm happy to talk about contract extension for him and new deal and making making sure they keep him. I mean why wouldn't you. Why wouldn't you WANNA WE WANNA keep him I? It's really interesting. I'd love to know you know we. We often say about it. Robin we agree. The Brennan Rogers gets off at the job with the size of he's GonNa say yes but maybe we could. We be wrong could be wrong. We APP is such a the project at a really great club with great ownership also is awesome those two or three years to get to some shape to get to get where you want to. I agree and I I WANNA I WANNA persuade myself off unless there is a is an amazing situation but but you say that it might take a year or two to turn turn also rank. He might veto. It's another level. Is the problem it last a half. It becomes for me no brainer. It's just I I know is this is analysts this league and of this game. It's really fun to say a manager that can coach and can motivate an a bunch of young plaza whereas the the of fallen in love with their manager. And it's you know Pretty much the same group last year didn't could you wouldn't. And this season under under this guy they flourished and it's just it's just about looking for managers should look at what's being done in time. Fine version of football clubs and even even even the football for the way that they've yet to younger players and they jumped online a manager. Plan was doing okay. I remember my same. He's throwing Ryan transitioning but that a plan to go and get that guy and they found that's all I can get them out Celtic which they did and they've jumped on a guy that this proved himself itself to top manager so full marks second place right now. Rubio in the league table fifteen played thirty five points three points ahead of Manchester City. I mean brilliant coming to a little. What about the old belief dot great Jamie Volleyball Ridiculous Mistake Goals? Now run again. We have talked to him. Robin his hunger a hunger to any celebration in his anger and his face when he scores sometimes and he's fired up and love scoring ause. I mean I it. Excellent Madison scores the goal again. My concern is said again I can. It's at the moment is the white place but the continue to get results. Plays Net can come up with a few box. Yep got one. That's why is everybody. PULLEY named bill keeps going at the moment Yeah and what food another defeat for them aid mullins current currently Kentucky now. Of course now this water looking for a new manager you've ever to look for new manager also awesome looking for new manager. This November December now is the month when people are you leave our thirty four and fifteen games. We know we got we got up. We gotta gotta go so often buying in trouble but I mean one of my I mean one of the biggest prizes season them to be floundering at the bottom of the table from safety rob. They're like seven points. Only seven points to fifteen points eight points so this month coming up games over this December appeared in the new. You just stay in acting themselves off. Okay other teams other clubs clubs yes Around the League start with Chelsea. Yeah Abraham Buccaneer team where we must How important is he been? Two things two do things that stood out to me. I was GONNA come on friends who've a day I've never worn. Nobody wants of. I heard a conversation about at Eddie nod awed. Everyone says he's name interest is good as he was. It's makes amount was as it is moved on. I am what a way eight to move on to recall into. Trust the players from your category and some of the younger players to Mason. I mean that was made any academy taste. That's one of those deals. You do shoot and drove to the big chest in and you put them in the county I do you see him. Do you just know about something they've done on the training ground is maybe twelve fifteen in your kids. Yeah again and it's another of like other teams in. This league is just been fascinating to watch. It's been great to watch. Another young players have developed evolve new young managers well As motivated is rotated switch systems. A little bit. He's got midfield. Players differ midfield. Players in. This game contains two Kovic Mason in the hall pussy continues on the left hand side. I mean it's it's just a fun I it's miles better than I thought robb. I taught second team. Because you WANNA and what's the project growing and seeing how frank's working and getting game plays plane Berlin. Another another great result for them Chelsea at home. They're in fourth placing primarily now. And when you look down from there rob fifth paces. Wolves Wolves beat West. I'm united to nil at home. Semifinalist Day for them. Ah Wolves continue to to produce great results and and just quickly on on the reasons for that and there's numerous Berretta Santos been talking about him. Maybe for US jobs. My my question is this with them. is is their accents. Due to his coaching ability or the recruitment the club of us with George Mendez. It was a link with the Portuguese. Place is that why worser great more than new both now both deaton plays good quality of players good level of players and then they're well coached together and you go winning formula. That's why yeah and we did the season before last. We sat down Neuner EH. After just remind me was very comfortable very confident. Yeah and more fast like we were a little bit like supremacy league. You Bet like you might change out by this. He didn't he didn't and listen. I still go while against themselves The big results were up just looking at the bottom of the table so them into knowledge one big result for the Saint Saint John. The bit of reaction downings is. The mind is a key. She any member season. We make predictions about. Who's going to get relegated? Sue dunning was my reason why didn't think so. Let's go down. He can and get going. You can get goals. And he's continued to get goals and and I do believe that that will continue new casino. Rubio chef one of the results of the weekend. Yes absolutely the results. Difficult place to go Brown Malayan difficult system. The way they play atmosphere Chris Wallace team always well. Salt and ready to go. Say Macho man gets his first goal for Newcastle police for him because it puts so much work so much waited they need him to produce some goals. Because you really don't down on these great but you've got to get some product he got the you got the first goal and then our friend John Doe Salvi. Captain Drove Midfield. When this Jeffrey please stop fill what was enough side? Referee didn't blow the whistle. The classic play till they didn't Shelby School Newcastle Fans Crazy Newcastle. Go three massive points just last team to to touch on with good result before we get onto under appreciated performances of the Week Crystal Palace. The sign sevens place and it played the the points as Manchester United Majority of the game with ten minutes got sent off without. They didn't need to do and and Jesse slope in in the end gets the goal and Roy Hodgson. Just keep some plaudits having associated. Yeah just plod floods along and he gets there too then rice. It'll be there another sees melby nice and safe and and you know teams fiery manages and all this stuff go you know we just keeps delivering for Crystal Palace. Let's get to our own appreciate you performance of the week.

When he was at Wimbledon he was was An apprentice typical David Martin. He's now say two. Three years of agency made Clemmie League debut for West Time United and kept a clean sheet. TV motion for him at the end on the pitch tears of pride we as he hoped the Alvie. Most in so Alvin Alvin Martin. Who are twenty twenty one years a west time Dave malting Getting his first game is first clean. Sheet fifty odd years of age so it was just a billion in story. Absolutely was fred our Freddie Freddie man united under appreciated ridiculed But a love love is spirit. I love it determination to find a way to play while into keep get on the ball and he worked his socks often. The midfield against Spurs alongside Muktar should savvy John. It didn't look good when Tommy's appreciate it. This is under appreciated. Fred is the to me of underappreciated player. Now of course I'm I'm not saying the best thing ever but we do this award every week and every show we try and get this award in this particularly. It's gotta be Fred for somebody. The there is not appreciated and maybe not a fantastic midfield player but when he does play well I appreciate I appreciate midfield player and is energy is bravery to get four to get back to slide in. Well Done Fred Right. Said Fred Mustard about enough of you for this week.

LADS#74 - Head of Manchester United FC Philadelphia Mike Formento

"Oh. No, no. No, no thing. All right. Welcome to a lot of Mary stressing soccer podcast or lads podcasts. I am gracefully gracefully I don't know what the word is. Is that the word that's one word that is the word I joined by head of Man, United f, f, c, Manchester, United Philly. I'm fucking this up, so. Okay, sort over. We good. We're doing this live, so so yeah, introduce yourselves, man. Thanks for having me. My name's Mike four Minto. I'd been in Philadelphia for the past eight years. Now, where are you living? Phillies graduate hospital far away from where we are now. Convenient? Yeah, I'm right there in point breeze that far away at all. That's awesome. So how long have you been a Manchester United fan since before I could remember tell you dive into the details a little bit. I guess I asked the man city fan. I had asked him like before after the oil money. Luckily luckily I had like an English guy. I know from man from Manchester's. Are you right? This is one time, but no, they're good guys know them. But back in the day, I say that older shit, but. Swear by the way. See every. So anyway, back in the day when soccer football, whatever was. Are you a soccer football guy? Always say soccer. Okay, good. But I don't. I don't get offended either way. By the way we are in the black sheep pub, always on something in locus or on seventeenth street just outside of Rittenhouse square. Yeah, I'm location stop by. No, I'm going to get more about the atmosphere here by people know we are in the black sheep pup. We are drinking. I've mix. He has Guinness cheers. All right. So tell me about being a Man, United must be so hard. No, I mean, it is a little bit harder now. To be honest, it hasn't always been the hardest. Yeah. Day when soccer wasn't as big in this country as it is now, United were the only team that we're constantly on TV on a regular basis, and I give it up to them. They pushed the American market way before pretty much anyone else did. My dad was born in Argentina, and he was a huge soccer fan. So he would y whatever was on TV. And again, since United, we're on TV constantly kind of became like a natural thing. And then when I finally went to Old Trafford for the first time when I was in high school, it kind of was all downhill from there. Yeah, we don't have to get into that right now. But real quick question is your dad messy or Maradona guy? Maradona Maradona, but he loves messy. You know, I don't want to say that he's anti for sure. He's just, you know. Just you know day I saw him when it World Cup exactly. And he's Rinaldo very messy fan. Oh, really controversy there this low heat, I guess, Man, United. I mean, I guess that goes back. So how long has been going on this is only our third year really because I've been in this Marin who, sadly can't be on here. I know he's bum not to be here for the Man. United segment. We've been here. We've been here like a dozen times in that MS fear is awesome. That's what I love about the black sheep. It's just like feels like an English pub. Yeah, that's one of the reasons why we picked it and. Few of my buddies. We live close by came in here before, you know, we put this organization together just because we love the pub-. The owner was a huge fan used to own a soccer bar and old city where. Tons of people would call them for the games and he was all about having a start this up. So it kind of started in snowball that were. That's awesome. So I was talking to the man city guys. You just have to call like the man you like or like message like the man you head and be like, hey, we're starting at team organization, the city because what they were telling me just need like a president vice president in or a chair vice chair treasurer. Is that like the same process? So I think what they did there speaking about becoming an official chapter with. Okay, right. So. It's a little bit more difficult on our side of things. I believe we're not officially recognized by Manchester United. USA were recognized by because you have to have a certain amount of paid membership. Okay. Yeah. And from the beginning, I never wanted to put a membership fee on anything. I wanted to make it as for anybody got dudes being guides all hanging out, create a place for people to come and watch United. That's it. That's all it was. You know, I thought about becoming an official chapter, but it's just a lot of loops to jump through, so. Okay. Yeah. No, because as I just wanna ask everyone. You know what I mean? What are the steps like? How do you create this? I was like Newcastle fan, which I think there is like a Newcastle fan base. They watched at the bars, I think do they really? Yeah, I heard about yesterday. O'Neill's is the Toffees wherever. And I heard recently the Tottenham guys were Fatos, but they move somewhere else. I get confused arsenal or Tottenham Goto misconduct misconduct. Yeah, we're talking goes. Yeah, I still don't know brought at seven. The podcast yesterday and I was like, we really don't know where that is a research. Again, we'll come back. We'll come back so so tell me about like atmosphere. Here's good. When I come here singing songs. It's like, okay, people chairs up singing the song legit. We're very pro chanting. I am not the type of guy that's going to get a chan- going for sure. On my I know, I know. I know I'll put my hands up in it that I am more focused on the game. But yeah, I mean, if anybody comes here and start to Chen, it'll get picked up. We love this pub because it's intimate enough where if it's a crappy game, we're playing someone shitty seven thirty in the morning and people come. It still feels like a good atmosphere feels very homey. Feel warm yet. Yeah. Actually gets very hot too. In the owners? Interesting guy. I've talked to him a bunch of times from Northern Ireland, make sure everyone knows Northern Ireland. There are two different places different. We'll get pissed 'cause I was drunk on AM like Irish. I said, I didn't preference that guy's a big dude. He will fucking en MI actually triple Xs l. because I t shirt. So yeah, I love your shirts by the white shirts menu. Phileas. Yeah, there's a wicked. So shit. I had a question. Asked me a question. You want me to ask you a question, how long have you been podcast year? Thank you. Yeah, you can find us on Facebook. Just plug for the podcast. Find his on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram at lads podcast discussing soccer, so plugged us. Great. On your own podcast. Thank you. Right, I can people find new working people find your fill. Yes. So we're on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram at 'em. UFC. Philly. Lincoln? No, definitely pretty much everything, but that. Can you refer me linked to? How will. Will skills skills. Public speaking. All right. What do you think is the hardest thing about getting Americans into soccer, like getting them to become like big to get them to come out week in week out to the pubs? I actually think it's easier for people to come out because it's an excuse to drink in the morning. American look for any type of drink cookie it. Okay. It's acceptable to drink at the moment. I can pre-game this before college real Balser NFL say, all right, cool. This is how this is the perfect season for me because I'm like wake-up Premier League from seven to twelve thirty college football starts up and then Sunday wake up, and then I got NFL started. I mean, just like it's the perfect season. Yeah, when it's not this season, my life is very empty. It is, but my wife, if you're listening, it's not completely empty. And just just just to make sure that empty. You mean the world to me. And is there like when we were talking yesterday, do you think it's like because draws a lot of people don't like draws, somebody will find it. The biggest thing is the lack of goals, lack of role and diving really gets picked on by the whole foot fairies. They age everyone NBA Dino. I know. And you're seeing that more and more to, but Brown, James, perfect. He's able the guy like gets exact falls. The guy, he's his acting skills. I mean LeBron I'm pro greatness like your greatness. Easy. Both are having a little spill, you know, not doing too great right now, but let's move onto some talk. So what are your? What are your thoughts on Josie, marina. We'll start there. I talked about pedal Artioli with a man city guy. What are your thoughts? I had him as my second best manager in the Premier Li currently. Currently second-best Moseley basing that off, obviously his trophy history, his history of just greatness. What are your thoughts on Joosten Marino I, I've heard Marino in renew outrage. I'm on the thing like these, like honestly, like, who are you going to get off? Just give it some time. I'm on the Marino in even though as an arsenal fan, he's been terrorizing arsenal at Chelsea for fucking years of cost us. So what are your thoughts on just Marino? I think that as he progresses each season at United, the press. Hate him more and more and the hottest hates them more. It's very two way relationship, but they everything becomes more and more negative. And he, I think, doesn't amazing job of making it all about him. I think it was Lukaku who came out last week or the week four and said, look, you guys see this one side of him, but you're not around when it's just us when you're not around. When you know he's on the training fields, it's a completely different guy. You know, he loves us. It's a, it's a great relationship between the team at him. So I think he does do a good job like he's got this reputation of deflecting the negativity off his team and bring it onto him focusing on him. No, it's very Bella Cecchi and I love that. Like we're how he handles the media and this is a, hey, there's no love hate is just hate right. And you know, I like I like I get every time I think about seeing him go to the press room. I'm like, there's going to be fireworks, give quo and somehow it's gonna come back and like your sex. Sarah Sanders and jersey marine. I'm going to get a great quote, and I'm all about like Mike Tomlin. I'm going to get a great quote no matter what. Yeah, that's cool. I'm glad to hear that because I talked to some United fans like sack him to like we have. We have a brutal fan base. Yeah, very naive and base. And I think part of that is your your fan base. I mean, like I was talking about this with the city guy yesterday, and I was like, dude, like for United. It's like every other year you're winning it. I mean, not to be like, now you're on this five six year dry spell. It's like we have one at least twice by now. You know what I mean? Very spoiled van base. I will be honest too. I mean, it's totally fair. Do you think there is hope tunnel with Josie? Marino. I'm gonna get expectations for the season, but you see him pushing came in second last year and man said he was doing like a sees a lifetime. Nobody centurions. They one hundred. I mean, so still got you. In the Champions League, you're in a, I'll talk to you about your Champions League qualifiers in a second, very interesting group, but relents and young boys, which young boys I don't anyway, very weird name, but what did you see? Josie Marino pushing the club in the right direction? Yeah, I do. And especially at this time now where you know bar Don, I don't know who else you'd bring in. Don will be cool. Yeah, it would be. Yeah. But I mean, I think patients is needed, calm heads need to prevail here. Basically. Yes, exactly. Pigs get fat while hogs get slaughtered exactly that I don't know if that applies here, but now. Great. The great quote. I've been saying to people recently, like it's your funeral, no context. Hey, see you later. And I'm like, it's your funeral. So. What are your expectations for this season? I'm saying when I did my prediction this you're gonna hate my top four. By the way I did Liverpool one near gonna hate city to, and I had United third. And then I had Chelsea, fourth, maybe or I didn't even have my team in the top four. So I didn't have arsenal, honestly. And then we'll get a champion, but do you think you guys can pull it off this year and win the title? The way things have started? I would say no. And I'm just being honest. Be even Liverpool this morning performance against Spurs. It was like dominant. They're not that far behind city performs Verma sucks. Yeah. Yes, for sure. But Laura's probably drunk. So that tweet saying that like they'd probably went out drinking before goalkeepers went out drinking. But yes, you see, you have the talent easily, say top four is not out of the question. Yeah, I, I don't. I don't see us what title, and that's just me being honest. Hey, that's totally arsenal. Six. They dropped to like seven. Eight. I don't know. I like it when I am re, but we'll see. Who's your favorite player currently Manchester United? I would have to say the Heo. Mean? Yeah. I mean, he's been world-class later the year for how many years. But when he first came. There was a ton of people that were saying, oh, he's terrible, you know, sell them. So he had some struggles when he first came because he's so young. A little fragile. Yeah, I always forget like your last title. He was there. He wanted forget the, hey, I always days only been there like two or three years. And then I shit like he was there a Furby. I mean that rose my mind. Yeah, you brought in all the good players. Well, so I was team, Dave from the beginning basically saves exactly. I mean, I know what are your thoughts on Paul dba? So I know World Cup, but awesome guy at Manchester, United, talk about little like half and half like so he takes my heart strings a little bit because I love the guy and it's a roller coaster really is. I think he's got tremendous ability as a player. He hasn't been good enough for us plain and simple, but with the extra slack and shit that he gets from the media and our fans, no, no one else would get that basically. So some of it has on fair. I think his agent is a huge dick OB. No, right. Yeah. Someone's got to control that guy. He's a fucking asshole. Like he's almost like Trump like, we're just shut shut up. Do your job. You don't have to be in the tweet every five seconds the tweets about like. To get off Twitter, like who else has Ibra. Right you, Brian of a couple other big news. So he thinks he's like, big, dick guy, got all the money in the world, but he's a fat bastard. Moving on. I'm gonna get to champions greater. So you guys have a pretty interesting group. It's you who's the big dog in that? Yeah, I have them Barscelona winning it, but I have you. They right behind them. How do you guys think Valencia? I don't want you his last year of severe. You kinda underestimated sa- via underestimate anybody anymore. Yeah. Okay. I don't know anything about young boys. Do you know where they're from to say. I don't Switzerland. Sure. There's that output the wrong. No. No, there's there's a couple of teams champions pollution, aka Athens or something. I'm like Athens at screws. Yeah. Yeah, yeah. Yeah, yeah, yeah. Got that one. So how do you feel about your group? I mean, you they think's going to win it. I swear to Christ. I said twice. I said, there are not twice and United is going to get second and Valencia. Third by, I'm worried, I'm if I'm Man United. I'm not thinking you can just cruise through this like man city and buyer Munich. The easiest way fo- just wants. They Real Madrid win last three years. But anyway. What are your thoughts? I know you've as made tons of moves, so they're very scary to begin with Renaldo coming home. I know coming back to United. No, that's great until the scores, three goals at Old Trafford so, but I think we'll do well to finish second there. Okay, so we'll see. Yeah, I think Valencia I don't like I don't really watch. Do you watch any of the other top five leaks? Yeah, I do here and they're not religiously. Yeah, trying to get into Syria because they seem really interesting and ESPN just east as Russ. I'm not gonna. I've been streaming like him read at soccer street. But I don't know. I'm trying to get like, Ooh, I wanna watch PSE, but I don't wanna watch them beaten as league that leaks different that that's like the fifth. If you're doing. Five because that's so top the warriors. So top heavy where it's like, I don't want to watch them play bunch of fucking former. See them the shit out of team, six dentists in Israel job. I'm watching team Iceland who are all dentists, real job afterwards. But I want to say that I watch MLS to feel union guy. I am Jimmy courteous support your local Jimmy curtain guy. He's ginger. We get along really well. We actually journalists recently, we went to a game, we got to go sit in the press. We are big j for you. Thank you. Yeah, we got nervous. We didn't interview. Well, you're probably not going to invite invited back. No, we're like surrounding the MLS journalists kind of nerds, just saying. Yeah, you get that kind of guys. And we were like in the locker room like Padilla's there and stuff like that. I'm like, okay, I'm like, yeah. Can I get a quote for a lot of marriage guessing labs pod? Why are you? But I have a couple more questions. I've got two more questions. So how far you go in the Champions League, I would be happy. Finals quarterfinals. I'll take that. That's fair point. Josie marina. He wanted to Porto. People forget. Yeah, he won the trouble of inter. I don't know read off his, but I'm just saying the guys just one so much. I wanna hate juicy marina the person. I got a re Bella check like eagles fan. I mean, I hate the guy. We gotta respect them. I mean, I hate Josie marina run, but God damn if he's not a great coach. I mean. I mean, I think my big thing about Man United. I think you're big flaw is your back line. I mean, I think anyone would agree with you on that point. Okay. This point that's Jones is still there. What's Chris mauling I know. So all the sudden they're like our top two choices. Now. Bye. Bye. It seems like he either gets hurt after every game, or he makes one mistake and marina won't plan for like another twelve months. So that's it's weird. I like him a lot too. I know what's up of Marcial is getting more starting time. I don't know. Apparently, you got the insider. Tell me I can't. Actually, I don't even what the lineup is right now. Oh, have they released? I mean, they probably released yet. We are in black cheap up by the way is man city. So kicking the shit out of Fulham. This is your live update, three seventy. Third minute. Chelsea. Are you a nil or is euro guy either way, either way. They're also you guys do a lot of trips, right for Man, United Philly. Ann Arbor. We for the Liverpool Man United. Yes. So I didn't put anything together specifically for that. We had a rough experience last year with ticket prices and stuff like that. I mean, we, I mean, I see they denied us media passes so fucking national champion, small time. You're going to deny us unbelievable. Seattle problems last year? Yeah, we did just in terms of ticket prices and things were promised that weren't delivered upon and the package. But then once a year we put together trip told Trafford. So that's kind of something wins that we are looking at dates now, but possibly the Chelsea game later on season. I'm so jealous when I was over. I was living over in Swazi. I tried to go to an arsenal match, but it was like a hundred. I'll say, British quit. It was one hundred. See, I just threw up mouth and it was so ridiculous. I feel like I've heard a lot because I went to a Sunderland Fulham match actually for an FA Cup match. When I was there, the tickets was because I was one of my friends who's a Sunderland, what support. So he works with them and get got them for like twenty pounds. Like do you guys get deals like that? Or is this? Is this fool like hundred dollars? I mean the only way that I know to get, let me know. I'll come from the club is the get their hospitality package, which ends up being like hundreds of dollars. Yeah, but it includes like, you know, open bar inclu- dinner afterwards. We go who were the stadium, but I think unless you're an official member chapter, that's the only way that you can guarantee seats for that many people take twenty people. So it's tough to get twenty twenty tickets. Yeah. I mean, that's especially sitting the area like I was trying to set up for Swansea mattress Swazi and I was trying to get all my study abroad friends, and it was like, so impossible to get all fifteen of us all to sit and I'm like, well, you're going to be over here and here and they're like, well, we can't be together. I'm like, whatever. So wicked. You guys actually go and travel all the way to Old Trafford like heavy you how how many times have you been Old? Trafford me. Oh, God. Say seven times this traff Old Trafford seven times how how is I just wanna get like this is this is great stuff. Right? So how how is Trafford? I love it. I mean, that's what made me fall even more in love with many nodded. Oh my God, and they're walking around before the game, smelling the smells. You know, the drug enters singing the songs song Anders outside just like everyone coming together for a beautiful. Then. Do you ever get like an outsider because you're an American over there? I've never had that experience with the crew like your Man, United fans. Everyone's just like very like brotherly, right. I mean, yeah, I'm also not doing stereotypical dumb American thing. Yeah, like screaming around like shooting guns. Thank God. It's like you're like. God. It's like, you're like, where's your gun? Right? I couldn't bring a over here. You know what I mean? I I keep a pretty low profile. Yeah, exactly. They've been grow just like in cammo shorts and wife beaters, shooting guns sky. I'm like, you know, that's not all of us. There's a few of them like that. All right. So I ask question you ready. I'm a blank sleep. Just, you know, American sports fans. I want to get into soccer, sell me in a minute, or you take as long as you want. Why should I be Man? United fan? Why should I be a Man United fan? Oh man. This is gone. Tougher contentious. Yeah. I would say because I'll say because you'll struggle to find a better matchday experience in the primarily that going to Old Trafford. Greatness. I mean, you just have the history I mean, and and you make it a day. Do the stadium tour see the history of the club? I mean, it's really second-to-none. I would say then go watch the game and we'd play amazingly attractive football or soccer, but that's not necessarily the case anymore. Go watch some furball go go and then fall in love with that. All right. This is my team and also read as an arsenal fan. I was attracted as a kid. I love the color red. The red Power Ranger, read everything red cars, fucking optimist, prime fucking red. I loved all this. All right, Mike. Well, this has been a lot of fun. You can find them at MU, f, c, Philly, and Philly. Twitter, Facebook, hit him up, come down the black sheep. It's a lot of fucking fund drinking snakes. He's got a Guinness. Oh, cheers, Mike. Thank you so much. Thanks for having me. Some.

Arsenal's Perfect 10

"Welcoming, sedition of ESPN SEM. I'm Dan Thomas shown by Allie Moreno, Craig Burley, an Stevie nickel Marco them. We'll be joining us later on from Old Trafford looking ahead to that classroom between Manchester United and the events. But we start off the emerets also three less the city. One also coming from behind to get three points. Here's go from bettering the gay, the visitors, the lead on the stroke of time, making it one one in Bamiyan, coming off the bench in the second half the score to make also three less the city. One that is now ten wins in a row in all competitions for unite Marie side. Taking a look at how affects the table. Also now two, four level on points with Chelsea and Spurs. Hey, this is good from awesome as good from us and listen, I am. This is what you want. Fossey's judgy of all night. One transfer window. There was no staff signings. The skill by mindset in the open game, then the lost against Chelsea. But that really was a crazy game. I mean, they could've schooled four or five. And sales also was a classic. We've always, no, not just the argument as just bought off Munaf in the in the big games bluest. So could we can Amrican bottle that and and we've all said also you need to structure the team around the bow for him to operate as best. So if he can, he can do that. Then Bamian coming off the bench, then it could be a very good season for us. No, I mean, I think people are getting carried away if you go and social media. Not that that's any surprise about all. This could go all the way of arsenal get, and in my opinion of getting the top four, that will be great season for them this year when the leakers at least the teams make good enough to be helpful. Well, I had United in the top four. So currently they're looking sticky, and I would say they plan as well as taught them. So the not better than Chelsea sets your up for me, but they are capable, two thousand and seven. That's the last one ten in eventually it was twelve. They'd finished third in the table. Yeah, I think you have to look at the facts just yes, the played some great attacking football, some of the goals of school recently, what can of Vanja teams of old. But the truth is the Dunner under not the most severe of pressure for ninety minutes the plan against teams that Lester who very open who you can destroy by playing good football and the fact that they've gone ten games on being ten. They won every single one of, yeah, yeah. But again, the gain confidence, but the plead against teams that have led them play when they come up against who who I think will be the tall for and actually a liberal city spas in Chelsea. They won't be able to do that for ninety minutes and get away with it. They'll be put under severe pressure and and I'm telling you of my to send a box against proper team Moustapha and Holden. I'm I'm a worried man, so yes, being fun tastic to watch, but I'm played in a body of room. Well, you can only concern yourself with players and teams that you're playing against. And you can't help it helped, but win those matches. Fun fasting to war. I'm not disagreeing with opposition criticism of arsenal in the past that some of this games they've dropped points on, they've lost points and they haven't won this game that there's supposed to win. So now they're winning the games that we're supposed to win. And now we're saying, well, home, let's see who they play next. I'm just saying winning this, never a bad thing, and ten wins in a row says a lot about a team a national fund, but definitely Guofeng's going. We hopped on Wednesday. Niamey's go, proven track record, no matter what you say. One of the is going to have to make as goalkeeping it was talking about check bit. Clearly Leno is more comfortable with these wanted to make a decision as who's best with a feet. The buck who's the goalkeeper because Steve, you mentioned against even Socrates comes back in to that defense, not the strongest defense. So the goalkeeping possession for them is going to be key. What's the magic full minute to make? They'll do this every week. Puts her own them. That's it. Play. Lasted him film. You. And give them space and give them time than any team about these push around them who are going to get in good positions form and getting the bulk, just certain if you have a MRs show fan, not th. Right. You can download on daily podcast which is available on the website. No question. The big gang tomorrow in the Champions League Manchester United taking on events, is it of cool Caesar, return of Cristiano Renaldo to traffic before we look ahead to the game renowed I was off during the press conference how he felt with sexual allegations hangover. You men. This is not this statement. Two weeks ago if I'm not wrong. So I'm glad I'll. Of course I'm not gonna lie on this situation. I'm very happy. My lawyers, they, they are confidence. And of course I am too. So the most important and I enjoy the football. I enjoy my life. The rest. I've people who take care of my life and of course due to always coming and I presume. So I'm good points. Mark joins us from our traffic Mark, how they reacted in the UK to this story. It's always been a really big story. In Renaldo, a messy. The two biggest football is in the world in over Nells at a great career in England with the United. So as well known figure over here. But I think certainly is perspective smart quite keen to dilate, Dan in sold and make sure that it's just about the football does know kind of no plans to make a big thing about Aldo. The funds different mats of the funds might given the kinda hails welcome in two thousand thirteen when he came up with Real Madrid. If that happens, we'll have to wait and see, but is the a coverage over here of coverage. People being very keen to play straight report. The data Gatien's does not come into the situation. It's just be one of those laws in England, the UK different to the state. So a lot of it can be ripple to certainly made a big plus it's a huge story is a huge figure wasn't just Cristiano Renaldo. Her we heard from today. We also held from Josie, marina and interesting markets after that drawer against Valencia. Olga focuses on. Marino and his feature at Old Trafford since then, of course, he came from behind beat new car so that good performance in the jaw against Chelsea is a pressure off a little bit going into this time. Yeah, I think I think winning new custom, the monitor, the win the late goal, three to win, and then the problems at Chelsea. I thought they were very unlucky to consider in the final kick of the game, the performance of a really the game a little bit. So I think Marino Fennell is safer than he was. I think events is again that you can afford to lose in terms of the group in terms of future the anybody is looking this game, a winner boss Marino, but you know, United Calcuta limping along the nine thousand seven hundred twenty league. And if they start slipping back in the Champions League group out, then they're gonna get to Christmas and be a long way adrift in the in the primary jumpy leaks and maybe facing Europa league in the year. So I don't think immediate threat, obviously, performances and results. Certainly results have to pick up quickly. Take a look at the odds United twenty one to twenty. Meanwhile, you is six to four is pretty evenly spread going into the class. Craig degrees are gonna. Find even contest, expect event is to dominate the game and probably wouldn't. Again, this is who. Drop points, bud, vegans, January, we can mentioned it yesterday. Allegra was county governor colty was human. Previous the last lost game in April against not place this team that goes, doesn't of planning children all the plan away from home that don't generally lose games very hard to play against gay. Oh, going forward. So I think I agree with this is going to define what's going to happen to them Marino, but I do think coming up with coming up even wearing mindsets. That's tough. That's a tough one games and these guys are going to say intact. They'll say, Tartas crepe bra. The point. I agree not happy after that joy against general. His theory was basically everyone was already looking ahead to this clash at Old Trafford willing Clinton hadn't because you plays players this, isn't it? Interesting. The census right off the bowl. I made these changes you to go out now and you go to try and get a rezone. Surely that's not. That's more native Asian as opposed to, I'm -solutely. Yeah, no kind of classical Utah into your players and say, okay, well, you've just you've just given a performance is no acceptable those you can chance yet. Fortunately for munch as she needed against them. And unfortunately, Vermont, yes, you needed. It's are all traveled. I'm not sure that a Louis vent is going game of favorites. The unique faith really going to be happy for United his and try and break home. I don't think the will. I think that that means that they will try and come out and that means danger because you've meant is absolute masters of the counterattack and why I agree with the fact that renters is dangerous on the counter-attack. I do think that when you see the second half of majesty night against Chelsea, you want more of that. You wanna team that is willing to take chances going forward. It's willing to press team that is willing to take risks when they do that. They have good enough players to cost bronze for everybody else. Chelsea, their possession of the ball was long gone. All that beautiful possession that people are talking about it was gone because my night instead their line so that were winning the bowling good areas. They were attacking day were dictating the pace of the game at some point to say United, if they evaluate when they have done. Well, this season, they have to look at themselves and say, it's when we're willing to play on the other half, not just waiting for teams what actually testings defensively when they've done that, they created problems. I think that you go ahead and do that. The rest of the year you up -solutely lickin used chips if you leg. If you really think that this is how marinas gooney say he stole out and yes at times of loot well going forward. But this is this is drink for the team late. You've truth, does the truth is times going forward? The second off it shows and Luke the pot. The majority of the time they haven't tried to go forward and the throne goes in the back of the net. So so if you want to be positive e. s. t. e. com from Chelsea. But unfortunately, if they're going to try and do a home against Venice. Even Melik shells. The not. No. I mean, I know. All right, bye. Bye has very nature. Yeah. May happen as the game progresses but will be kind of just hop in like that we can with jokes, were. Floss. He's never going to do that from the start of the game. Never. There's been a lot of questions in the Mark about the style that marina was employed United, but the boys awry on tomorrow isn't the time to go against that and try and play some flag football because event is let's face it that no Newcastle and then no, Chelsea, they will sign. Absolutely. I think there's been some close to the schedule trough of the is going to the nineties when this was a champion league semifinal. These these really begins events is restored the reputation recent years. And I think you know United on a European big European will always go at sea. They'll just bureaus, don't buy the crow, but this can't defend the consent to cut so against Chelsea. And you know. With Ronaldo bucks ultra events, SCO, at least twice on choosing. So that means you know, after school to three to win, I just don't see how I think. I think the Kaku is not consistent enough. I think if scientists have been playing so anything like he's potential fit, I plan to the middle because the Kaku is not doing enough. He's just doing it for one of these place is going to have to play events. This rush great for England, less self, United Marcial, still inconsistent. Problems all over the picks up a lot of quality going full defensively that not there. The defense post too much pressure on the phones in the midfield is to deliver beyond the possibility that signs and I think you've come up on Tuesday, probably went comfortable. The guy say, marines thought process here is trying pinch. Appoint and try and SCRUFF for in. And again, again, she vent this whole probably not going to get enough in the way they fight is not with event in their fight as a stray opaque to head with Valencia who they have to go and play much I think is the last day. So he's just scraping around with site trying to keep the rule from the door and get some points in the bag says, when he gets stages still with a show of going, the event is will widen as group comfortable, doesn't that say a lot about my say and where they are that they're saying, you know what more we can compete with Venter's are come petition is, and if that's the case, that's the sad reality for my fan. And what's interesting you talk about events looking their shop, Stevie in this game. But overall, you look at everything that's going on with Boston at the moment in reality trades events are up there. Certainly as champions, they contenders obviously they made the final twice in the last few years yet six to one, you feel that if they can get themselves again, they've looked good. So far this season, there's no reason why they can't go all the way. There's one small problem on you. Tober right. Was nor the shade has shown us the about the second part of the season. Recently been re, excuse me, Real Madrid struggle and Lita last couple years, but the three chump means lease in the truck show. The final was this month that would agree with you on. Fortunately, it's not an come. The tone of the year come. The come, the the trophies end of the season hand Scholley looking good playing well. To right right now, but you don't get medals trophies Tober. You don't get onto to Lil the even if he gets the trophy end of the year as you called it. Cristiano Renaldo is going to be Juventus not a Real Madrid that that's not going to change. And so I think it does impact the way that the team place and he does impact the way that the team approach the competition and the level of confidence with said, you know what? We got a game winner here that we didn't have last year that's about prediction. Starting off with yourself. You mentioned before you couldn't say, you could see events at scoring, at least to you going for an away win. Huff too. The buck foot. Now they also Valencia asset Craig's, but to be up against NC, but you're not really need to get a win someone at to kind of keep pace the more points at home, but eventually to the to skilled and the Trump is nothing eventually win comfortably. When I go for, I'll go for three one event is with Rinaldo scoring and and at least one not celebrate clearly it will celebrate one. No, we'll see the odor. Often Cubans again. Again. Flu. Stephen event is two one. Wow. Do you went this one? Noth-. Wow. Everyone going for a youth, a win, and just remind you what time jackets to your ninety. It's ask for rations of qualifying from this group months, United currently with four points. Boys mentioned Valencia still gonna play young boys twice. It could all come down. So that final game and the style in week. Six. Geico presents eyewitness interviews with inanimate objects.

Go to Geico dot com to see how a Ford -able renter's insurance can be. It's a classic, oh, this week and boss Celona against the ram Madrid, just full points, separate the two teams going into that class, react Madrid on the brink of crises boss alone. Meanwhile, without town, his Lynn on that see, definitely out for the game of two breaking his arm during that victory against Savita. Let's talk about the fat. Messy. Won't be involved percentage wise. Percent essentially what difference does it make off a book and questions? I think it's a good question. Percentage wise, for example, is it seventy thirty with messy what is without messy? The boss to win the game, how much massive difference is we know as, but I'm trying to stop digging a hole digging a huge hole trying to quantify it. Quantify the best player in the world team. Definitely. It's going to make right. What is going to do is put more pressure on defense already creaking on buffalo test egg of my dawn, the game that we can against even lost the game because he made some saves. It's not a good defense. But then again, neither is Real Madrid. So. But quantify percentage. Steve is I will only thrown present be taken the about Solano's to, you know, at ended the day every single Pessina not boscell on a team. The I thought they have in the main when to get the ball as whereas we know messy. The has been the shame of the last ten years. The guys hotly must again, no, all of a sudden and the biggest game of the season so far. He's not there. So somebody has to step up and it's very difficult to try and figure who is going to be, you know, racket teach you in the middle of the pot has not been the same since World Cup. Is it going to be continue? These being kind of brilliant on occasions, but the little consistent, it's not going to be Suarez. It's not going to be Bush, get who's going to be. I can't figure who the mon- knows that actually go to everything together that we messy does not an obese choice. Meanwhile, Philo fake always say it's a situation where you think, hey, good chance to try and save my job by beating Basel without Leonel. Nazi. However, the flip side of that if Basel under beat you without their now messy, good night, see you later. So I'll answer your previous question. Fifty fifty right? It becomes fifty, fifty four. Both teams they have similar issues defensively, both of this teams have their problems and there is no the nine that messy not being on the field is now you take away from Barcelona, his ability to make up and mask the frailties of Barcelona. At times we think about Salone ANSA great team. This is flawed team and a flawed version of our so on. What they have done is that they had come back to the back. They're not nearly as dominant as they once word simply because defensively they have problems. Well, that gives Real Madrid chest. But this is a Real Madrid team that there is Ciro confidence too, and there is no where to drug confidence from, and we see said haram was having a blow up in training and that that doesn't happen when things are going great. Yeah, that happens when things are not going so well, and now the stress levels go up and you feel like you have to get results as for low piggy. Here's a man was about to lead Spain into the World Cup and say, you know what? No, that's not for me. I'm going to go Real Madrid because that's my dream job that dream job may just be walking out the door with every soul, a negative against Barcelona. That was Monday night action in Syria. Some Dory could only manage drool though against swallow it, meaning the one point clan out of Tina. In me. Meanwhile, more results, fantasy results and big shown Stevie nickel beating on fantasy Donaldson convincingly as well. The will rise to the kids when the games come around. I mean, well, you beat Rafael shocked crate. You're in a run on you let you win every week in the moment, sort of commitment that yes. Don't have much into. Probably due to. If you pressed just Ramadi you can play over on the website of the Champions League fantasy restarts tomorrow. Meanwhile, slats Abraham, which of course is being doing a great job in MLS so good infant that some Spanish newspapers, suggesting that he could move to Madrid in the January transfer window for a loan spell. Does this work in any way in your eyes. Absolutely not. Slots on didn't leave munch issue nature to go play them l. LS for any other reason than he knew the highest level physically not mentally or any other way. Physically, he couldn't couldn't do the highest level. So why would he then go back to the highest level one that he himself has convinced themselves they can do. They've been back to me. We're gonna pass. Jane, rents them Alon well, but a much different stage of his career. I do think that we're talking about my say United on rumors that maybe they wanted to bring slot Abrahamian bag and that seemed desperate in. It's the same thing here with Real Madrid. It it reeks desparation if indeed this is something that they're thinking about, man, there's a whole lot of strikers at that high level then maybe you go after before you do is let him at this point in his career. Absolutely. Why would use? Well, I don't know. He's on. It's a huge money over here as by has done, does. I mean, shoot, he's not sure if you a chance to play around Madrid and you'll Santen. Down shooting has had. He probably still fence could happen, but it's TV pointed out. And these came from the Christiane soldiery. Thank you. Seven, something no spins as lon- gonna go in, sit on the bench. Do you think he's really going to want to do that anywhere in Real Madrid? Not no. Why would he want to sit in the bench these these, the star, the blues, sitting on the bench, staying up -solutely, Stevie, Craig. Thank you very much. We'll be back tomorrow more until then.

Old Trafford Is Blue

"Welcoming addition of ESPN f I'm Dan Thomas show. My shock his in Craig Burley, sit low joining us a little later on to discuss the future of Gareth bale. But we of course, those start in the Premier League, Manchester United take non manages the city, and it city who once again, leave Old Trafford with three points in this times are pretty evenly contested first half the Nado silvers. Go just that really define the game from then on it was really one way traffic sunny getting cities second as mansion sits then with three games remaining, go top of the table one point Klay, a livable who one glimmer of positive news. So manages United today is also lost against moves, which means. Argument they can finish the full have will discuss that later on. But let's start off shall we? With this game. It felt weird. I thought the second half because it was just kind of. Oh, it's done. You've never really felt United. We're gonna get back into it. No. I mean, it's not a shock. It's not there's nothing. There's nothing. Strange. Your shocking about this result or performance. I mean, it was other than the performance was from the outset. It was going to be a defensive performance with a counter attacking style. It was better than ever ten. That's where the which was. Decimal. It was somewhat competitive and the first half, but that was done to in my opinion. Muncie were way off the pace of what they need to be. I mean was getting frustrated and this I eight and the posses were going to drift, and it wasn't their usual style in. Okay. Someone say we'll mind United put them off. I don't I don't think. So I don't buy into that not many do that to mind city. But when they come out in the second half, clearly we've talked tactics can talk ever, and you can talk about the old good okay Cup the bikes aid. Thank you, go sharpen out. Get the passing quick movement. Quick one and two, touch, and we'll open them up. And once they got the goal from the excellent another Selva at was as I expected men men against boys. There's a huge Gulf between these two football teams. I don't think we needed today to actually formalize up. I thought given everything that's a lot of people have been edge of their seats in the I know that football with that grade, but because it mentioned much and because despite the possession out of things. City created all that much avid hidden have an awful lot to do in the face forty five that being said noted Edison. And then all of a sudden the second half comes comes on it kind of comes around. And with the halftime team with Saudi coming on a Fernandina who listen you'd prefer to have in your team every single day of the week. But I also feel that LeRoy Sanei gives you added punch up front which I thought city lacking. And then the goal comes. I think it's a little bit of a goalkeeping error, and we'll get into that in more detail shore, and from then on in just one chance that Felton Lynn, God the far post, but Manchester United didn't have an awful lot to offer. And you knew from that point. There was only ever going to be one winner was just amount of how much head Nicole to that. We will listen to. I don't know how much freezes been used. But I kinda feel some maybe using this as well. The effort was there. Yeah. Is if that some reason to abide John the effort was there there was more desire than there was ever. Well, not not a given weekend. We for any professional football. We can all have games and Halford by games. But you like to thank you at least, and you roll your sleeves and all with it. So that's no that's not a badge of honor for this defeat as well. We tried how than we ever. Optimally? I think it comes down to the you talked about one glimmer of hope for United was awesome. I don't see it. I think mine United can only look at themselves, and that's no seven defeats in the last name game. It's an utter embarrassment isn't Barrasso that we're talking about Manchester United minute applauding their effort in Memphis, the Dombi as if Craig says, it's a badge of honor this majesty unite of retorting about and we're not sat here and they've lost two now at home. Nobody surprised this shock anymore. This is how far they of fallen. Let us be clear we aren't applauding their effort. I mean as Craig rightly says, we we're talking about my chest United here just to suggest that effort is what's needed or what's been lacking. I think it's disingenuous to United. Another thing we unanimous and thinking about average Manchester United team. You see that regret how they play you see that. In terms of when social tries to change things, and he brings off the bench and one of the most expensive for Borlase in football. Alexis Sanchez is giving you absolutely nothing. You don't know where where the goals are gonna come from? You don't know where any excitement is going to come from rash? Flood himself looks at a shadow of how we looked five or six weeks ago, and you can say that about everybody up and down this United team. It's a desperately poor sight and as much as you still within touching distance in the top four you asking other people to do favors, but was five losses. Last seven you need to start doing yourself a couple of seventy nine. Nine with children. Extrordinary being young. What we saw when social initially came in that bum. Everyone in the smile on that face back in the positions. Happy is literally gone from there to rock bottom line that begs the question once again, and we asked it when the contract was given to show why did you not wait until the end of the I understand the new manager bump completely understand returns to normal after Italian was never been well documented. The diligence should've been way the longer to find out the long term manager for this with the experienced rebuild it on on Hughes. The finances scout the players on what we're director football and I have nothing against scar whatsoever. He's definitely. That's very good stuff. But we're back to normal here. I was never an account never an account of. Well, you had no choice. But to give them the best. Beg is call pope because the fund say econ listened to this support does when you're making a decision on a billion dollar both multibillion dollar company. Shareholders. I mean Edward would mate we a fantastic chief executive making money for owners and shareholders. But he's been a disaster decision making on the football front so far. There's no there's no saying, by the way that that is going to change they've spent eight hundred fifty million dollars since Ferguson left, and yet we're looking here in the summer, and you could probably count on one hand the place. They should keep. The efforts have been good. But the efforts have been good no in all seriousness. I absolutely understand. Totally agree. The everything you're seeing and to that point. I think the big question about this team is not even who do you keep? But how do you change chiens their approach if you just look at the body language of any number of those players out there? Compaign contrast to hold was a few weeks ago, Marcus rush for who wasn't getting in my opinion, officiate under Jewish him renew. Looked a player reborn in the early days associates now you look at him and this game, and he seems as body language Jules wrong. He seems disinterested. He seems angry with everything that's going on around him. You can see just to see him about any any number of others, including Davidoff here who has been Manchester United thought he was full of both goes, I freely Davidoff here has been Manchester. United most important and best player for at least the last five six years. All of a sudden this contract disputes speculation about him going in. I feel his heart is already set. Elsewhere. And he's had a dip in form when you lose that enthusiasm for fear employers when you have that dip in form. It's hard to get it back just to chat. Okay. The first Bernado civil. Granted he takes very early very little backlift, but that beats Davidoff hand his near post, and when that happens to a goalkeeper like Davitti here, you think it goes to the defender's legs or something of the sword. But when you see the replay, he has a very clear view of that he sees it all the we and shoot Davidoff last year with through his captain that the second goal is for everybody to see as much as LeRoy is clean through one and one he hits it nearly street in a davir here who's done what would this free publi and through a right leg audited. When it was there to to use your hands and save and in the end, he caught himself in between using foot using a no such at goes right between the two it's a poor era at any standards, even poorer when you consider avatar is considered the worst best just a company. He's I wonder where it has had as with all going on in the contracts and stuff, it just seems it's closed and he's not playing as well. As a great goalkeeper. I sent yesterday's show. Not one money United player would the mindset team. If we combine one of these crazy teams, not not one player, not one. There's only to feed them at more go on the bench. Set the scored right on the truth of the there was no one end the eleven I'd only the would make Nikon say ratcheted. Hey and polka. The here Paul when I'm pushing it on the bench. The other say the enough change Mamane than this change remind my United here, Liverpool and mindset moment up here. That's just domestically before we get to Europe. I think Portugal as -absolutely Ralph staying away from that job. Arms-length state. So even if he doesn't get the money the once at Taunton. Is of mine. United the way they've been wrong with this plane scored and will they are in contrast to the other teams in England in could talk them and some sense given source cow. The job has probably done Marizzio, Portugal a favor because that's how bad they are. And terms of Willie wanted to be an really need to be we've been in the show for a long time. Now when we were doing back in two thousand thirteen awesome. We're in the conversation of titles and things have fallen down. Now where taught for is a trophy for my concern if on the Manchester United fan is that we could become all snow because I don't see how they're going to turn this around quickly enough where they can look ahead to next season. We're in data season after that they real proper title contenders. Is that I'm falling fallen. I not show where next we can be talking about Manchester United as title contenders. All that being said much has United did finish second last season. But given their slide and give them some of the other inherent issues with this club more to the point where we honcho marina. That's obviously what a lot of people saying behavior. For the football club played. I think listen finishing second is goodbye by any other standard. But when you see Manchester United have remained stagnated at best. If not regressed when you consider how much Manchester City continue to a head. When you consider ho Liverpool manager to put together a team, that's competes the highest level of every competition there in when you consider the Spurs somehow have managed to keep that infrastructure together on a manager who sees them competing at every single level that they competed that also have address their issues, you still feel that as much as much as United have changed their manager many of the issues that have seen them plagued Everson salads as left continues to be there continued to be these. I'll write an article the other day or part of an article on on ESPN AFC on ESPN. Could you care cut member both of the same or whatever? But it was monocoque didn't. But it wasn't Mark holdings opinion. But he was right in written a piece, and it was coming of Old Trafford apparently salsa saying, well, we looked at what liberal wouldn't quote commend. And we want to go down the patience route because Linda pillow patients clot when you commend. There was a struggle star. A no loo I nearly choked Madrid. Him drank comparison about patients when Liverpool when and high at one of the more so often managers in European football. Then you're going to be patient because you can be patient with trust and to compare and contrast we're going to have patience there, dude. With a guy who's been there seen it and doner against a guy who is clear Novus at that level to the some comparison, which mart was doing. But he was writing a piece a staggering we own belief. I know we should have talked more about this. We averaged by there. Guy on they have three matches remaining. The math simple if they win all three at once again at champions of England, they are very much now on in the driving seat. Another bad day for also losing, of course at home against Crystal Palace at the weekend and they lost today. Three one against also layer three nail down off tying pray. Every time wolves went forward. They like and they did school. Yeah. Defensively with seven percent possession. The bowl just tells you that when they didn't have lost it, and we'll them on the counter or ball into the box. As one of the goals was settling Leno come out grasping the more than put some of the on site. Just not good enough off the back of the policies defeat at home, which is really have to get the points. Once you lose that you're going to go away and the road, Baden heart. She's down, you know. And just two for Louis points. But I think another message just to cheer Niamh national funds big job. It's going to be post us invasion to rebuild. This us. Not tell you what the big winner from the last what seven or eight days as being Spurs getting through the semi final of the champions. They won that game late and everyone around them just falling apart, then are thirty three to one on to ball of five champions. They will be fine. You feel they will be back next season in Europe. Who will be joining them shack? You've been saying for a while today's result change that narrative. Yes, it does. Even though it's not just a point behind chose. Do seem conceive always had us especially Hudson, adore going down remain. But also sees has been. The phone nation has been good whom record no losses since the opening day of the season. And I thought that maybe to the corner with that result. Again, it's not but in terms of into their travels, but then you go and do that against Chris polish. You lose in this monitor to wolves. No, you have to go to less team that are only three points. I'm selves behind woes. It's not looking good. If even there was a little bit more of a fight a better performance at wolves. I could probably make an argument on probably stick with them for at least another week. But what I show today doesn't suggest that they're going to do out for them as the euro Pooley. Yes, there's a potential of course, record in Europe league. So all dead in the water yet. But an terms of the Premier League came to visit nothing. So have you got now Chelsea all United not United? It's move on United. Okay. On just Chelsea. That's hints. Just reminded. You can always tweet in your questions extra timing and tweet us ESPN say you can catch it over on all YouTube channel. That's welcome sit low into the show, shall we sit and talk about some of those perspective moves that could happen regarding round withdrew to over the summer. Let's show. We know we've pulled Polk, but the reporting today that he's told some teammates he'll be off in the summer. Obviously he's been heavily linked to ram reality. As the Dan side to the reason is why it'd be moving to the Spanish capital. The question that I would have was how. Baddies Bain rings row Madrid? Well, there's a difference isn't that between between how a play is playing and how play can play in different circumstances. With different plaza around them is someone who knows very well, then is is quite curious as well. When you listen to impress conferences. He doesn't she tell you what he's going to do. But because he's surprising about things reading between the lines of may tiddly. You have a sense of the contemplates. He's interested in. There's no doubt that he's interested in Polk. But there's no doubt the feels that can give him something in the midfield that perhaps he doesn't have the moment. And that he thinks is a worthwhile play to pursue. Now. That said if we take is true that paupers toll team is that he's not planning to stay at the the key element. Here is that's what he's planning. It's not necessarily what he will achieve because he's easier said than done to get a player out of Premier League club that doesn't need to sell. And it's not that easy to make it happen. That's not to say, there's an interest there is. But it's not that easy to make it. Meanwhile, say Dale that we've. About on this show is at an has all to react Madrid. Suggestions that will may have already been done. Yeah. I mean, the thing about the hassled situation cools that makes it so different to example for the for example to the Popa situation as his the the nature of his contract life. He's coming into the year of it puts a lot more power in his hands. A lot more power Ramage's hands. They have a better stronger position when it comes to negotiating can go chills and said, well, look, you can lose him for nothing all you can sit down, and you can do Dale and you can you can take a wolf want amount of money from this. I think also as well. Now, how far Chelsea will go down this. I must confess that. I know. But I think there is a sense that everybody at Chelsea knows. That has all does wanted this happened for a long time that he unlike some Plaszow has on occasion of being surprisingly public about it. He hasn't pushed he has an agitated for a deal. I don't think there is a sense that he sold of did things the right way. And so I think the because the scenario is different. This is a far more easy deal to pull off. And one said, you're on we always ask you about Gareth bale, but I feel that is more intensity now. So even when you were last on the show a couple of weeks ago considering what we've heard from sedan considering their action once again the burn about the weekend. Yeah. I don't want to say the same thing as he said. But in a way, I feel like I have to which is the. Due row Madrid won't a solution to the situation with Gareth bio. Yes, do they think that best solution is that departs? Yes. Those damn want him in the team. No, he doesn't really do the fines at she is reached as you say with the amount of wishing he's getting with the way in which he's been kind of become the focal point of some details, which is enormously exaggerated, in my opinion. But it's it's a reality that is there now, and that's why the people feel so he's the best scenario. They said, yes. Okay. Then so then you go to the next stage. She's to come back to some of those questions where you're saying about has about Bumba how easy is it to get this done. How easy is it to find someone who pile who will pay the amount of money that you won't inexcessive eighteen ninety million euros. How easy is it to find someone who pay around about sixteen seventeen million years year off the tax how easy it's find someone who will pay all that money and apply for his age is worthwhile. It's very very difficult to make this happen. Nothing while you're right. The situation fails like his. Become even more different. Feels like it's even more difficult to find a white back from this now to resolve this, actually if you listen some of the messages coming out from around Madrid. I think we're starting to see you for the first time glimpse a hint of the recognition that says, oh, hang on a minute. Where do we sell him to? And so it might be the solution has to be a bit more imaginative say how much does him leaving depend on has odd old bunker or has ample coming in. Realme Jade's have filtered or let it be known that they have a roundabout three hundred million euros to spend the problem with that is that we don't know in truth. Without is literally his friends have been in euros. Right. All this is because we believe we can generate this much money in sales. Now, I think they can approach this in by two or three plays without necessarily producing really big amounts of money from other clubs for currently go. But if they're gonna go all the way through with this revolution, which actually bought away Zan said now isn't revolution. I think it won't be. I think you'll be three or four signings. Maybe maybe a couple of big ones a couple of kind of mid tier players. I don't think it's going to be a whole new team for that to happen. They will need to generate money from elsewhere. And that's not so easy. So I think what happens is you start with grand plan you stop this idea. Right. Everything's ago, then he start thinking. Well, actually a lot these recoverable, then he's. Thought thinking at anyway, what am I gonna get? Then he's thinking anyway, what my going to be able to sell and then you get confronted. We're -ality around is never the same. We everybody loves to play championship manage, but it just doesn't work like that in real life said me, thank you very much. Sit will be joining us on extra time. That's available on our YouTube channel of coaching. Check out things like best the week as well on the website. Let's go to Madrid close the gap on ball, Selena back to nine points. That was on a three two victory against Valencia champagne on ice since lightly. Celebrations maybe this weekend, then begin. Tomorrow. Welcomes extra time. I have a question to sell things up for myself. Plo tough not in. Yup. Said that it wasn't gonna watch as game. Yeah. When you were in the race with new call so against United States New cells, the Rangers, would you watch their games? Nobody. Reading he's lying. Yeah. It was a way it'd be a waste of energy. Energy is spread watching a football game like willing willing to win much energy expel you'd want him. I would you watch ranges. Because the energy. No, I just, you know, just don't watch much. Gulf on right? Remember, the we kept him on the last day to win the title. Don't remember watching them not here. Just said we wanna lose at the weekend. We we go. Many games on right games. You your way to watch this. I wouldn't go through stop by. Stop by. That you'd want. But to Craig's point we didn't have cable TV back in those days. You didn't have much. There's not like no way watch right? It was only late nine to ninety five ninety six that was still Scully was that it was just. Was no wasn't on. Licensed just too busy Maserati. Talking about when is frightened coming by Franken shocker laughing hysterically, each other's dad's jokes made my whole week those jokes about. Going to talk to somebody else for twenty four hours a day. Unbelievable. I frighten from New York to polish last night on petty pitchy who was next to him the red eyes. Away, goodness, Libya fishermen. As you Chelsea for for a fair amount of time, and he's been Waffen without no for a good sport. Fractious easily four fifty. This whole life. Just a used it as a kid and his whole life. Unspoiled valley. Very good was Barry. Now, he's. Shouldn't have focus on the Champions League. And rest key players jerem Premier League matches doesn't b we'll drop any points. The rest of the way. No, they shouldn't they shouldn't focus on ninety one competition, but they should be aware of the possible implications. And so so I suppose you go into games, you try and get them tied up as quickly as possible you then make changes if needs be I'm also not entirely show. The it's not benef- issue. I think once you go into a routine of men's I think you just use people trying to win. And obviously look by the second things different in the league than perhaps you change. But no, I don't think you think you prioritize now I think emotionally is inevitable that you do. I you try not to why confident I slide into the midfield signing style on the wing the gang center opened up while both on the page. I agree. Well, they could maybe maybe an sunny one and players generally don't like to hear this as a very pasty player late. It can be ideal. When the game's gonna end. You know, the Mark IV on the other teams are getting tired and a little bit more open than maybe times while the season as this guy who can come on and utilize that space with he's pace. It's not something that player who wants to start always wants to hear. But it's an argument. I think that can be made. I think the veterans out on the pitch again. I don't think they really would that group freestyle consistent with the pitch. I don't know. What's going on with a million primarily games in a row? Pitch. When you come on in nice minute last minute. Unbelievable who is in need of bigger rebuild United awesome. United. Well, the trouble has you have to compare what the target so. Yeah. Historically, have hod success. Won the European Cup. Final. United have always kind of always been challenging for the primary league or whatever league as European competitions. So there need is greater. So if you look at bell with us ward optional about with a squad to get back into taught four and challenge domestically United to build a squad to challenge globally. And so they've got the right now. Who is going to be? And the chief go keep a question for you isn't top five in the world anymore. Seems like he makes a mistake every match got about month assu need to another. Another another top five. Yeah. If you want your life that Craig looks forward to. Padilla top ten final question tomorrow, by the way, just tomorrow. Yeah. Oh, Texas here. Please could call in in Britain. To that. If neither not always the downstate would've left ram Madrid would totally different season for the team. Not totally different. I think one of the things that we sometimes overlook, and obviously we are looking for reasons. Three champions the is an extraordinary achievement. But one of the things we look he's actually reality Lal. She was very very well aware of and that's one of the reasons why he walked away they finish off season. More than the dozen points behind boss-like they finish finished not competing in the league. Yes, they won the Champions League oversee know that that can happen would they massively different issue. It would have been different. But I don't know how different there's a little bit. You know that things wonder if Madrid had the nerve to see through the shift in China in style to see through the change in density, unto stick by particular spotless poll results stall, would they have started to come through it. There's no way we'll know that. But I think they stay still would have been a problem ethic. Season. Gone, quiet, Bodley don't think it would be perfect little bit view. We took in tow saving. Arm and leg elbow thing. I'll give you a couple of arms if you will. All right. That's it would have been but not good enough. House. Real madrid? What are you speaking Real Madrid strep over the suit jacket disappoint you what you wanted to say yet? Roped home in the league again and one Champions League. No, I didn't really wanna hand for you. Because I was gonna go. That was eight when we finished decide what you're gonna hit. I'm going to stay longer. Say joined the company really Hispanic back. Tomorrow shock is going to give you top ten ranking took him. Well. Don't don't pass. Ten. Ten minutes meals.

Gab and Juls: Awful Man United or Excellent Spurs?

"One day you're watching the GAB jewels show and. It feels like it's rained the past ninety six hours straight. But that's okay because to brighten up our our lives we have tremendous weaken football to look back on some huge result will be talking Barscelona later I'm talking Liverpool we'll be talking. For Show at Old Trafford at the top, we probably won't be talking to you many transfers because the transfer window is still open. Yes. Magic a television. We'll look back on this on Thursday. But jewels you're wondering why these are here. He was somebody's birthday. Happy Birthday Jewels Shut and forty on Sunday nfl I feel really blessed and thank you for the messages including Yours Gab and also produce a frantic. This is where it all goes downhill anyway nobody cares birthday is not as much as they do about Joe Marino going back to old trafford, against his old club and whooping the backside of the man who replaced him only gonNA. Our Soul Shar. Going into this, I looked at it and I said, I, united needed a result spurs have played fifty eight games in three hours seemingly because of this crazy schedule. I had united as favorites. Yeah. But but I didn't count on by Maguire and and the rest of that. No, an unusually those games because the two teams are much better on the counter-attack. Really. That's where that's very good. They can punish you. So quickly transition, you look the team that will take the lead, I. Then can sit deeper against and the counter and be really good. So when I see united scoring after thirty seconds penalty. I think. Okay. Now, this is playing into their hands because they're gonNA, make you more save more secure defensively, and then they will have rush for Greenwood and mass yell and. Bruno heating the. Super. Especially against that spurs midfield, which doesn't even have also in there to to to go in and illuminate things in create zero creativity there right? True. So I thought okay. This is perfect. But why didn't think of forgot is not Harry Maguire cost you eighty million pounds and the for eighty million pounds he cannot even defend for the sake of him. Because that I. Don't Beli goal has to be the worst piece of defending that you've ever seen in your life ever worse than Eric by falling asleep not come on at some point Harry Maguire even poodles off he's on his own team in Luke show who's about to the ball. Really fine to the m sixty two over the motorway by Old Trafford and instead. He makes luke show falls over, which means that I don't. I mean last season. Maguire. Especially after the restart looked really shaky and wrong and game against Old Trafford where he mind Marty's on play on the corner that led to this second of that's what was going on but this is another level. This is this is like Sunday morning. Level I don't want to just make this about united and their deficiencies although. I think we have to point out that that Luke Shaw file at the end. I don't care if the rules say what should have been yellow whatever. That is the kind of foul which I think they should look at where video evidence and find him or something or at least make more of a spectacle that is the kind of foul that players used to do when their team was losing and the fans were on their back to show that although I'm still trying I of heart I got myself send-off. Now, this is the kind of crap that we saw back in the seventies and eighties Luke Shaw by all accounts. A Very Nice Guy I'm sure he feels terrible. I'm not going to harp on about. Did you see the reaction from source horseshoe? There's a, there's an Angolan television where you source your and more behind. So is the it's. Basically facing. You facing the United Player the. The Spurs player and so even social goes like what? Why Player and goes on my God. Why are you doing this? I know we're supposed to go and pylon the mail telling him. He's a cheating foreigner and everything forgetting marcial sent off but we both should have gone. Yeah, gone. Okay. Fair enough. Let's move on because I want to say some time to celebrate. Marino, because feeling very harsh critics. What he played a Blinder, he paid the blinder and I think you said there was no so less creativity but I think this is all your position. If you place so-called under the is around him instead of just having him sitting with wings or him sitting with someone else I don't think you feel as comfortable to go and chase the board to go into the running and then just when he gets the ball by just. It is soccer. Sewn of Qena whoever you want but I think when he's just a to in midfield with him. Is comfortable as a midfield three and I think, I mean spurs setup I mean and the way they play. So I thought was perfect and then Cain in the form and saw and taking advantage of summit by defending is. He's a blessing. I wanted to talk a little bit more about the Spurs mid because I thought they did a really good job in effectively taking pogba and Bruno Fernandes out of the game. Now I know Buddha Fernandes is still the media darling face because of all penalties and stuff whereas pogba is always the bad guy is always his fault. But I founded emotional thing is they were both poor but I think a lot of the had to do with Spurs. Setup field and I know that Cain saw will get behind the headlines and rightly. So but I thought tactically the way he set them up and once you take those guys out of the game, you're not gonNA get much from. BASSAC once they go down to ten men. Does united strikers are service dependence strikers and Once you look who's on the bench yes. There's Donny Vanderbeek but for whatever reason, he doesn't send him on until the end. Do you get that should you have seen that? Should you said you know what they're gonNA set up this way. Let's let's bring another I. Suppose you would have done that if Marciano, I think the Central Pharmacy, the of changes allow things but I think he never had another plan. There was no plan b once we clearly saw that book by Bruno Aware of the game I mean Bruno off a half time. And brought, Fred. But. Don't even I don't even know what to say i. don't even what you say. Well, what did you say spurs enjoys the is thus stormy relationship with dominate and we know him I, style kickoff at some point and argue again but it was a time where they couldn't see each other anymore. They didn't talk to each other anymore and I think the way they both of them have worked on a relationship again to trust each other the way she. Has brought. Back. And clearly he's attitude has changed because he's working hard. He's running and I think that's a lot of credit for wonderful. See something similar with Delta Alley, podcast listeners. Our TV viewers have gone away, but they're going to be with you little longer to delve a little bit deeper into this situation. Joe's in terms of media reaction. Seems to me that. People are pointing fingers at Sonar Majority of people pointing. Fingers at Woodward. We're kind of going after old ground. As I mentioned earlier, the transfer window still open. And tests could be on his way. No point speculating now let's speculate later about whether. They can improve things. But I'm interested in this notion going into the season the you have maguire and you have Lindelof as you're starting central defenders. And Everybody else is hardly played right by Hyatt. Thank you. Started one game last season twins E. B. John. Jones I didn't decide the small was really good last year. Albeit, at Roma he's gone. There's gotta come a point where you go where social are voiced his issues about depth and alternatives. I'm stuck in two minds about this. You're the manager. So at some point, you don't go and voice your concerns. Now with day in public days left, you need to have the intestinal fortitude to say you know what nobody likes Woodward gets blamed for everything and if I go out in the summer. And I don't like it when managers do this when there is a serious club with a proven track record but I think, sometimes it is fair to throw your toys out of the prime comb to style or Marino style or funhouse style and say guys you asking me to go into the season. We're all my backups, our guys. Haven't played football in the last month or you've played it very, very badly. I mean out of changing show is this something social should done because you? Still, have. The the. In public yet in public that's talking about calling it out your private I don't know maybe didn't he had lots. Of but but maybe maybe you know what? Maybe he was happy. Maybe he was convinced that maybe maybe he thought you know what we've finished third best defense in the League which is true which is true to finish third best defense in the premier league season and maybe saw that until. Okay well, we must be a must have defendant the best defense in the league there's good and maybe never thought. Okay. Let's try to find a way of improving these defensive records having a better but for or back five very once maybe just never never saw this but I find it baffling that I know point this summer the. Geno wash merely centreback should be the one where we. It all energy, all our money everything. You want to all efforts to go and sign a really really good center bike. We better than what we have even better than Maguire. If you want better than anyone is maybe Bhai to even and by another by the way to find out incredible associate has a manager whether he did it publicly or not yet defended with without too much old summer but that's that's that's why he chose. And maybe that's Kirk i-it's but I dunno but calm you never thought this is not good enough defensively. So Phil Jones will leave to one side, but Eric by was very highly rated defender. When he joined Manchester, they're not worth forty million or whatever. He suffered some very bad injury since then. Is this is this the reason why? He's not being the player working turning into the player that he was supposed to become or is he just not being well coached because I don't remember him ever other than a couple of games I don't remember even when we got injured. Under me. I don't remember him playing done well. Maybe he just took a long time to dive maybe the team. Made. Maybe he was. There was lacking something to come here to the permitting his game maybe the coaching from Marina who clearly was not ice best in in those united years was especially the second one. I don't know what happened because I just think that. Physically. He has all the attributes. Really. I think he's quite intelligent guy I think he'd get into stand. The game is positioning was not does he still have those attributes or is just make sure As yeah maybe maybe he struggling. I look at Marino. And a one, a friend of mine who's a spurs fan says you know what? I don't want to get fit. Unhappy with with what we have up there if you if you change Miller what. What how different could be it's just you've got. You've got. A guy who just walks around and plays golf now. But you wouldn't be presumably wouldn't change bail for four lamented presumably you would still have Sawn Kane Lucas more, and then you would have room in the midfield for those also who hasn't become a bad player he's obviously He's Jewish or what have not fully fit and then you have lascelles Hoiberg and and winks, and maybe also deeper this law on. Okay. Maybe forget wings. Okay But you why don't you want to change the system from Sunday keep that four three three notice what what's been good or not I think Marino loves sub so. I think if you've got because when you play teams parked the bus. Yeah. Okay. You need to have somebody who can pass the. Okay you either more in this period of those begins like the one on nineteen, not the ones against. Games, you can go back to his eight one formation. I don't care. You can do whatever you want but then you play bail on the right and then on the left and Kane and then you've got yeah and then you don't. Everybody's someone. As, much pace as Beta. I think could help you even more in that kind of tactics to be honest. We don't know we have zero idea will condition bail is and what condition he will be presumably he's back after the break, but you know that's a big. That's a big question. I'm guessing. I still don't see spurs finishing top four as of now I stand to be corrected when facts change opinions change. But. What would define success for Marino. This season I mean given it. Somehow they finished fifth last year and I thought that was quite a feat by him despite everything I look at this year and I say I love that on signing but. Beyond that I don't know that they're much better. Are They Would see I think we'll see I thought after the restart we saw at times more problematic. Approach could have to the game. And If they. Pick up and moved into next season. I've always thought that Cain was a wonderful number ten was wonderful number nine and that could look really well for. Better this year than he was last year or the year before I don't care about goal numbers or whatever Kane and we had David in terms of the contribution you make salting eastbound level. He was three years ago. Yeah. But if you allow him to play a deeper is know what porch was doing a Tornado I rarely then if you're allowed to for him to drop to be more than he can play the we. He can have a better by what I think is interesting. From what you're saying from what you were saying earlier I think if you finish top four and don't WanNA trophy. If you spurs. That's a good season I. really season you're. Finished October you win or like. Or League Cup or Champions League or a European case. Sorry. Is Did a success because I think if they haven't won for so long that if he brings to this club, even if we know champions season, this is a this is a progress. And I collected could have a huge impact if they win the Africa for the season's to. But if It's one or the other and anything in between I think is a failure season. It's still think a tough ask. The other clubs, the way they spent resources and stuff. So, good. To get into the top four. Enough of that Jules time to move on to La. Liga had our first big clash of the season Barcelona against Uva. Let's talk to Sid Lowe who joins us. Said people got excited over. Barcelona's first results. Look for now three elegant Celta Vigo and whatnot. I kind of thought they results were much better than performances and said, let's go and see them against a real team. We saw them against the real team finished one one. I thought Barcelona we're pretty fortunate to escape with a point. Am I being unfair here? I think maybe you'll being slightly unfair about the first two games to accept what the performance added was very good. All of that said Vieira was so poll. Performance or why itself Vigo was much better given that this is a place that that they had one in six years and nine I thought they were good I thought we saw things that that we didn't say season from Boston and the intensity I think the sense of Kind of collective mission the sense that they were, there was a structure of the mall, its structure I still think has some very significant flows. Now think leaves a huge hole in the middle of the page, but that's a that's a broader issue perhaps as as they move forward but I think broadly speaking you're right and you know my my sense of last night to put it in a single phrases that the game that was supposed to define weapons alzheimer a genuine the any good showed us that severe all. That's a very good point. This is perfect but he's not surprised with Sylvia collectively better than these team with a new manager with the formation, etc. Argument with a better manage to manager but I was surprised after say sit about some of the suspicions that we're not. Kumon may especially. So early after just an hour fats coming on on Greece coming on, but we could touch on a bit later as well. But to bring twinkle and Petrie and I know it was the same against the. Vigo. So maybe he sees something in federal entering cow I don't see right now but I was a bit surprised especially considering how good fatty been since the start of the season. Yeah, I mean, Kuban said off the game that he felt that the team showed signs of teague. The fact that they played three games in in a week had an impact. Obviously everyone else has what is by because it'd be mid week games by but he he seems to think that there was a physical element to that. I think there was also a status thing here, which is the he has decided that both during Cowan Pedrera ahead of them belay for example, he's decided that you want to give them minutes and an and bring them through Sutton what we saw from federal las. Palmas was was very impressive and does does at least prompt us to think that he's going to be a very good plan that said obviously look let's put this in context. It was last parliament in the second division is not the same as playing football. And I thought I'm with you on that I thought that was slot strange I thought but it didn't really shift the way that boss was setup in in any meaningful way I think this this I think you can call it this I think it's full to pool nation that they've gone I think has problems I think he's not he's not perfect by any means but. Kunis is quite clear on this and these quite direct about it. I also wonder. To be honest with you wherever it makes a difference today. He's October fifth and it's the final day of the trial. So window, I, think once the windows closed. If then belie still there than we might see like shift in the in the order of those substitution, we might see them Blake stall to play if he's still there. All right. Let's talk about severe because we don't want to trick shift here. To me, they looked like they could be they are the third force, maybe the force. In. season. It's sprung compost or Dont I saw Kun Day was really really good at the back. Twenty twenty it's been weird. For many reasons, could this be the year that that's severe win the title do you WanNa? Give me percentages that we have percent Madrid but I feel like we need to do them for for Severe and the percentage is too. I don't know how to put a percentage on on or you I do think the you know step before this Guy News due to test Boston, which is in is in itself a recognition. Side I I was looking at it earlier I think he's twenty six games are only one defeat in those twenty, six games, and of course, in extra time against by Munich this is a team I mean that's in this sense. By the way we're judging Barcelona against the team that knows exactly what it's doing. This already made boss owners still work in progress is still is still in the middle of a process that's I think very long way to go whereas to be a relatively stable, there's a, there's a couple of additions to. The Posture Brady law means means a kunia coming in left by the departure Fanego means means eve I'm racketeers. Departures by the way. So. There's a two guys who? Last year. Yes exactly, and then not entirely like changes in the banana and rockets while requisitions lever. He's a different type of player, but I think the idea that severe have think the sense of what they're trying to achieve is I think very clear and very wanting trench now, which isn't the case with also I guess you know you're asking percentage maybe one putting is is to tell you what Hosokawa. President said last night and he said look we're talking about league in which there are two or three teams refund much bigger than ours and obviously that's side of Madrid and. But we have to have the ambitions charm whenever. I'm we have to be there in case there is a year in which those teams slip up and I think there is. I think severe, very cold to outmost saying. The verdict courses about a mixed message, which is you have to say, we're ambitious forever. You have to say once when everything but no one is going to say what am I this year we can compete really I think privately they believe the in a strange season in a season which even Real Madrid although that's all and other they haven't been beats him. Entirely Convinced Boston and certainly Athletico Madrid let's see what happens with them. They've just had to draw what in a row I think there is a belief that this is a year in which they could compete for this now winning it personally I think it'd be on them. But. I think you're right that there are challenging now shades of lots Yo last year missing now. Thinking about this actually jewels. If I ask myself how many severe players would get into this Barcelona Lena if I was the manager, the manager yeah. You what I have novice maybe not last night now bus. I'd have Kunda easily he was a monster just weekend. I'd find room for her don in there somewhere. And the way Lucasville compasses has been play although. Sousa was brilliant to I. You're excited Jus I. AM enough to say like like I said, the momentum from last season was where were already very good unbeaten run together. Plus the fact that the team okay. They lost two very important place, but it changed much usually severe bring in fifteen players and sensitive implies every summer right? This is an has been this has been a bit different so to find that you almost have. The same squads and this the mentality with the resort that you had. Last year with your putting everything for Meizhou clean the. Perfect example of how great they've done in the last twelve months because it was a really play in front of Bordeaux. He was young player. He had potential everybody could tell you that he'd been playing for the US team the problem too good to that level. I, think. Severe Club she and everyone around him. How did an incredible job because regardless of how big his potential was when he signed a I don't think they even himself but I've seen being that good just a year later. You like that it right. You're on board with my severe players get into the. Team getting carried away. Yeah. I mean I think I think we've as well I think could is a great example as you say and he's a great example work that severe do now one of the things I think we sometimes make the mistake of doing is we look at who monchy signs and we look at how successful they they become. And we'd talk about what brilliant I. He's Golfer signing, which absolutely has actually bay wasn't cheap it was A. Little. Bit of a twenty million euros public via is a lot of money for a guy who I think was a twenty. Well, maybe even a nineteen year old central defender at the time and actually he kind of got overlooked a little bit in the first off season because the ever call of so impressive I'm a the. To use the Spanish rise, a wardrobe, the guy's huge, and so he stands out it feels like everything is going to him. It feels like he's you know got bulldozing his wife forever them. It was a moment odor in the air. And I must confess remember when it was but it was a conversation with someone sanctimony to said, he will have the call good a multi demand and saying what about the other guy because no one was really talking about that stage and bit by bit couldn't they found his eight now the reason why I say I think we misjudge because we look at as we said, well, what a great signing and What we've done is exactly that phrase you've just used all the people around him severe just signed plays they build a structure, an ecosystem that makes those plays fit and feel comfortable and feel part of it, and so you get someone like when they and even something as basic as how quickly learned Spanish and how quickly he feels like he's got people around him helping him out how much of a kind of. That environmental. Job. Sivy do and Monte I think he's massively important for that reason as well. He doesn't just by the magic that. He buys a place and he builds the CA system in which players can succeed and I couldn't is a great example of that. I think that when you look at the number of players because before we talked about how? He's potatoes had more time than Kuban obviously he's had. But if you look at the turnover in players, you look at how many of these Soviet players where at severe even just sixteen months ago. It's only going to be a couple and that's pretty remarkable is how quickly the process goes. By the way you mentioned, we're going to move back to borrow for box office reasons. When you mentioned the whole wardrobe thing is Carlos the reincarnation of the legendary status. Is he going to become by your status when he's older? Please That is the greatest youtube clip in the history of league by the way fineness it via status running eighty meters to be shot Ronaldo to a ball over the top everybody's seen this. was. This was like in the ninety first minute of the game. Cristiano Ronaldo is up with what ten years younger than he is. Today people over because China was injured by your status is the size of the building. Okay. I mean seriously he must be the biggest player because outfield player in the history of so anyway, whatever I digress I, love my body. Yeah. To be ferried a on one level I'd say yes. But on the other complete opposite in that, you look at the Carlos the ever called absolutely huge. He looks like he's supposed to be huge if you it. Looks like how athletes you look. He looks like a boxer he's very broad shoulders he credit. You know he's biceps a huge as well. You know he looks like he could have. We could a thirty five letter long name and it would still across the shoulders are broad. Of didn't look like. That was the thing about there's a bias status was the kind of I mean. Look at this from comic books right. Looks like a superhero. He looks like shipping spandex muscles dodging allies very obvious. By status was completely anti hero. He looked like the you qc down the pub he. had. A neck fifty miles wide, not so much. The shoulders the neck. So he was he was an ox he was he's obviously wasn't the classic. But then as you. That brilliant. What's each of the other one? The always might be about biased hours the story about him having a pet pay that wasn't the fact they had a fight with by below at the the the story was that they had a fight in the medical room after biased. Watch. Someone out and I can't remember it was Cristiano someone else and so the story went and there's just this little detail made the whole thing funny for me was that by Estero standing there in just a towel punched in the face and I just love. This is. The Voice. I'm wearing just a towel by going to punch a very large town. No doubt Jewish horse. please. Tell me that Mambo graffman would be fine. Please tell me that they're going to find a way somehow. To make him play better to make him perform better. Himself would be happier that he would find. He's feeding that team. Plays please tell me everything is going to be fine I can't tell you that because I know that. Because I personally think. The for three, maybe four years. We use the collective we necessarily include myself I mean we should I suppose. We massively underrated and congressman for two full years. He was unbelievably brilliant in a team that increase much for him. He did everything by Athletico team. I think he's rolled in the French national team from the European Championships in two thousand sixteen, the welcome two, thousand eighteen was massively underrated as well. I think. This was a guy who probably should have on the ballot Dole one of those two years quite honestly I think he's that good. But. At Barcelona, it hasn't happened. It's not being as terrible as I think some people think in the in the sense that last year he got kickings and you look at how little criticism of hazard and John to to give the examples the new players that the big clubs was bad. Then his goalscoring record low she reasonably good particularly the opening goal when you know when it's really theoretically more difficult but there is a sense of him not having a place in the team. Now this year in theory and we've we've said this before. Agrees superstitions right hand side coming in or off the front. Or at least or folks nine Accordia free positions number ten off the Front Ryan side folks nine, those Leonel message pre positions and that in a nutshell is kind of the problem if he is going to go run some over this spice rather than run some traffic, he's GonNa have to go outside into a right into right hand side channel, which isn't his natural, but they shouldn't even got a couple of Charleston this yesterday she didn't take. And then is an emotional process to this sense if he's. The sense of the belief that players around him have. There were conversations in his first season of boss on Web. They were saying things like look how do you think you'll teammates feel about the fact that you did that video that you didn't come up later the you turned up one hundred and twenty million your idea when they went in. You have to go an absolutely put them in a position where no one can question you and so far. We haven't seen that for I. Think it's a sign. It's about to start. I think it's a pity I. Think he's a brilliant footballer but to be view I, think he's in the right place. Said we're GONNA have to leave it there because we spend so much time talking about by your status but you know what? It was worth it. We'll be talking about Greece men and Barsha time and again. Look absolutely. Sir thanks so much. Thank you, say. All right enough of all of that. How about some quick hits instead let's go Liverpool suffered their worst defeat long long long time going down to Aston. Villa seventy-two tools this just a blip a bad day at the office or are there deeper concerns I think he's both got I think he's about that your fees because everything went against the court three-shot deflected Adrian goal that. Lost aboard in crazy crazy position and things like. Child. was about that your face every everything really went bad could have gone by one bath however, that was there was issues I thought with the attitude of some of the players that don't know what happened to Alexander Arnold but this is not playing I mean the whole back four was but Tara Board in the sense of. The lack of demeanor, the lack of even the way. Just common, sense, times I thought they meet some chances as well. Finishing. Still. Not. Yeah. Gordon Greg. Gaming Favila just thought it's a mix of too I. Think they will have to saw some of the attitude that we saw in game yesterday where they didn't want that game enough and villa wanted it more than them, and in the end you get punished level there you go. Club, YOU'RE GONNA pass Gob I think we need to praise Venus? Villa to as well WHO's getting your love or Watkins for his heartache is a greatest what really game sparkley for his debut as one. All of them I thought they were decent defensively to. But out of those three, if you're holding a gun to my to my head, I'm going to say Jack Relish that when you look like that and you grow up in English ripple playing the way he does I can imagine all these hard men calling you a fancy Dan whatever else The guys leader on the pitch may be imperfect but the guy is is tremendous. It's great that he's at a club Aston Villa, once-great Great Club that could be great again one day and I just love the fact that he didn't move on elsewhere. I agree. Buyer needed four goals from Robbie Levandowski including stoppage-time penalty winner to get the win against hurt Berlin Joel's time to celebrate or time to worry a little bit. They were shaky defensively. Really bad moisture. Hickey. You're right and thinking again, the balance of that team that we mentioned before. Doesn't look just right right now with the midfield after losing chug and a few places we explained they've got new players coming in. And let's hope that flick and find that balance a stronger balance because otherwise they're gonNA keep conceding and considering Chelsea's Golden I don't think. Not Every day. Without. The ninety minutes to bail them out. He totally saved. Alphonse Davies at left wing not the same thing. Afonso baby's life back looks like they're gonNA deal with their. Deficiencies by keeping Havi Martinez yet we saw. At right back. Okay. Because the simple. So you know I think still ton of work to do. You event is was supposed to play Napoli the big game in Syria on Sunday night. Did you not? Can Confuse can you explain? A this is really confusing Mesa. You've got two conflicting. Versions of the rules you have the rules laid out by the Italian league and agreed upon by the Italian national government which say that if you have. Less than a certain number of positive cases what you do go into soft quarantine, which means that you go move into a hotel together, you can still train and you can still play games, but you can't go back to your homes and then you have the local restrictions which Napoli. The local health service said after Napoli got their second case on Saturday they were at the airport they're on their way to to terrain. They said, no, you can't travel. So they decide Oh we're GONNA follow these rules instead of the the national rules. This is going to end up in court and theoretically you've showed up at the stadium during this follow the rule. So you've enter should be getting a three. No win by forfeit Tell you what this is ending up in court. They need one rule for everybody and allow that to be the rule going forward. Otherwise they're not going to finish the season and it's not just going to be a problem in Italy I'm really disappointed that you didn't said you know what we understand the situation we understand that local authorities don't let them fly this. We postponed again. They're bigger than these postponed the game. Could have said to the Leland and we don't want to win. We don't want to win this game. Because they're four fates could not so be it for me. It was a fast. It was a farce I. Really you should have said something far be it for me to defend. Hugh. Today Lebron I think on this occasion they were correct. Zindedine sedan goes back to playing lingers central Venetia. Madrid beat live onto but jules is not where he wants them to be using now and the second one really late nine, hundred, million car in Ben Zimmer on the counter-attack ultra man of the match again of the March because that's the third time already in four games. Three Games I guess one of the March because he saved them again, liberty created far too many chances for game. Madrid. That's the that's the point at the end and I think Saddam was Rodney and he said we need to improve quickly we all excited when commentary scored six goals in the opening game of gets now he's to news in a row yeah. You can say normal service highs. This is not good. This is a physical game against itself upon it didn't take chances but day created virtually nothing. So these united versus Manchester City was arguably the best game of the weekend jewels. Did you enjoy it as much as I did and did you learn anything about peps new defenders? It was fantastic I thought it was great Greg. SPECTACLE THOUGHT WHEN CITY Closed Down Kevin Phillips, they were on the up and they were clearly the better side and soon as beyond sign leads find another way of. Bypassing the press could put on Kevin Phillips especially then leads were so amazing. I really thought they were fantastic and probably deserve to win the game and said the draw was a fair results are known for Ruben yes I think we need to seem a bit more. The MAUR does two full box I mean that's Mendi and walking more than Ruben Diaz and just so bad that game was so much fun. So exciting to watch exhausting. Yeah. Everton be bright and four to top of the League now after. With a three point lead. So we can't believe we only talking about the now, Gab Tammy Dot your Colin, not ten domain Kevon looney to an English version of relevance key. I like to think he's our pal I look I'm happy for he's obviously added some very good players and Hamas Rodriguez and Alan who who's out at the weekend gets big players out this weekend incidentally. Look let me tell you into something he doesn't just work well with superstars. He can work well with younger players with good players and hopefully help them turn into great players but it's incredible star for for Everton. Buscher Dortmund Roles Four Formula Win over Freiburg? NOJEIM Sancho. No problem. Gio Rain Notches. Three says and Erling Haaland goals jewels who impressed you more Giovanni Rain I love You I. Absolutely Love You I. Love How elegant you are love the way you play I love you intelligence you movement how skillful you is just so we Just just love it I. Mean Holland could have had one hundred the assists at the but. Looks like Shrek Rain Jewelry Now you beautiful I. Love You I. Love Your. One goal apiece and one would get a peaceful intern larger gob on Saturday who would be happy. Then who's better? Play? Acting is a play acting sewing Vidana of Patrick. First of all lots will be happier because inter once again squandering. Manage. The, both of them play acting but Fidel at least got whacked in the face by doing mobile and then he play acted Patrick. That was ridiculous. He got CNC sent off late on again is bad lamilla and thoroughly embarrassing. Arsenal took a while to get going but eventually be Sheffield. United two one jewels Chris Wilder wasn't happy that the didn't show red when w Louise pulled Oliver burks Jersey would that have made all the difference in this game if they played for if I've been done to ten. So early in the game, of course, it would have been a difference than agree with Chris Wall that was a red card every day handed out of performance. Going backwards. No backwards. It's just like you know I think that'd be struggling to get going times Franklin pod mixes it up again with Kalomo Tony Dump out why Georgina in midfield and the Crystal Palace four nil nil halftime when you impressed. We're much better in the second half. It makes more sense. He's not difficult though to be better in the second. Of course but crystal palace by the way. Super. Defensive and Get back into game. They don't actually do anything don't want to come. I think we still have issues to sort out at the back I don't think you're going to go too far with this setup. They need to work it out show. We'll scored a nice goal. Georgina the too late penalties I'm glad that they respected the hierarchies lists absolutely good for him to take a wiser senior gets all this abuse but hey. Baby steps forward I. It's a long season. There's still a lot to figure out. Let's see what happens. Is as well I agree. Ego. was always one of the more shall we say colorful figures infringe without getting into trouble? Do Some googling guys But maybe we're not surprised. So what happened him at this weekend and you're right he was arrested I in place in custody and is being charged for basically being really close to some mafia gangs in the south of France in. Marseille manager was both. Rector players, Wehrley played Nice Nottingham Forest Sporting director. Here, in the UK, as you said, always hard rumors around him about that, you could be doing at least people who were close to him people he knew his son. Also who was murdered I think few years ago by rival gangs in in Marseilles and nothing those links just caught up with one of those things where he basically grew up with these people and kind of like those old movies where one guy becomes a cop and guy goes and becomes a gangster and some of his friends chosen. Exactly. And I think because of the money that there is in football and football's Abar, think love is friends I've been very interested in in in the football world if you want. So let's see what happens. It's not the first time he's been in trouble with the with the police and the Justice and He hasn't done anything wrong and he was not guilty. Of course but Nottingham Forest just can't catch a break. Right? They call. You know it was always guess pointing was always a bit dangerous in a way because of that because of that reputation authority, the quote good job we sub machine and now I just don't know what can happen to him by the way young listeners for those who don't know Nottingham Forest two time European champions I think I'm right in saying only Liverpool have one more or have united one three united. On three for you went. Okay. Fine. Only Liverpool Imagine I. Have One more European Cups. So not influences not brand new reg no problem for AC Milan who be three and go top of. gob The kids are alright right? Yeah. I mean look Spitzer aren't very good late anyone. Die Great so far? No. But as I mean, come on what real ave the greater shootout, the greatest penalty shoot I in the history of football. That's true. No but I mean, they have a bunch of injuries that this is. They have the youngest team in. Terms of starting eleven and this lineup. And they keep the momentum going and their top of the League and I think this is important because they're getting buying. You know it's great that he brings back but they don't want to be an uber dependent team. They WANNA show they want to make sure the kids grow spitzer aren't very good but this was one of those games. There's no nil at halftime where you start getting a little bit frustrated rush things and whatever else especially with younger players and instead they saw it out and I thought they were deserved winners and stiffen up purely. And Raphael Leo who has been criticized before that she chewed by his manager recently especially in the League, two goals. And I think that's Because yeah. As the natural center forward I mean they've played. Played You know they've tried different options, but he is the natural backup to. Censure man get themselves a new striker to replace Eric Trump tank and it's moist or moist. Ken depending what country in Happy Jules I'm very happy. I think he's got lows of talent and is a better edition then to promoting was although he saved this time the gym music. But I'm very happy with Mosey came. Let's hope that you can get the running king. Come on. Do it again, they'd be five to I've not scored four or more in each of the last three games gab even better than last year. They're certainly deeper than last year they're having lost anything jettison. I'll tell you what only one teen this. Time television so it may be entirely made up, but only one team in the Big Five Leagues has ever scored four goals. In three games to start the season that team round Madrid from nineteen, eighty-seven with Hugo Sanchez and. That is a standard. ATLANTA. The Goddess, an idea that is a standard that setting. Right. So we got time for this weekend. Thank you so much to join us how about we come back on Thursday. We'll look back on the transfer window closing look ahead to the international join us. Then we all we got three. All we need.

Quarter-final Matchday 3 Recap

"Ah? What's up everybody? Welcome to the start of stoppage time. I am your host max Baril in this podcast devoted to the Champions League, Willie cats Baril, are you there are you feeling happy? I am very happy. Max very happy to be on the podcast. Thank you for having me again, and very very happy with the results of today matches. Now, I don't get the sense that you're wearing the black armband that you that were now in morning here on on the stoppage-time as Manchester United has left the tournament. I don't get the sense that you're on the same wavelength with me. There fort Lee, not no. No. It wasn't really a great display have to say menu man that you are you have to be somewhat disappointed that the the state of sucker to say the Old Trafford this days or camp new to the big. Not to say, the least you're absolutely right. We're gonna get into Barcelona versus Manchester United and Juventus versus I XE. Let's start with Barcelona Manchester. United now Willie. This is going to be really the theme of my day today. I feel like in the soccer world. There is not one of the just the highest level of metaphor. That pundits like to use is. It was really men against boys today, and frankly it works perfectly because we can apply it to both games today. But in reverse and today, and we'll start all the more cliche version Barcelona three Manchester United nil that means Barcelona advanced four nil on aggregate. Leeann L messy was the Astro as ever with goals in the sixteenth and twentieth minutes Felipe Katina with a gorgeous goal in the sixty first minute, although messy, it's probably if he really really felt like it could have had. I don't know three four five goals today. What do you think? Unbelievable, his magical that guy. I don't know, you know, people actually put them on the same level with Cristiano Renaldo. I just think he's so Sapir his his you know, when he is on today. He was definitely on his a magical guy his magician. She's so fantastic to watch. He is mesmerizing. I think we're so lucky maxed to actually be watching him play. Right. You know, you hear about piddly who I had actually the great pleasure of watching for many years playing, but DiStefano Mara Dona people that you know, were really fantastic players. I I don't think that they compared to messy misuse really such a genius such a, you know, every time he touches the ball. They'll something so smart so skillful so intuitive hard hard to. To play against him. I think in the poor filled. Really did look particularly good against against messy. So he was he brought his game to camp knew for sure. And I think Manchester United maybe forgot it but back in Manchester. I don't know there's there's a lot to say there's nothing to say Willie all at the same time. First of all, Phil Jones. I mean, he really is the clown at the heart of the Manchester United defense. I mean, he just looked. He just he is just an endless stream of gifts and pictures and memes of him looking absolutely foolish and and like. You can't you can't put him in a worse position than having Lyneham messy running at him on a on a on his good day, frankly on any day. So, you know, we'll leave it at that. But he was obviously in a just way out of his depth poured too. Hey, I mean, I read in the build up to this game on ESPN. They had some silly article that it was like, hey is undergoing special training is to do special things to defend against Nessie. And it was like I saw that at the time. And I was like, well, that's just inviting humiliation. If you have a great game, you block, everything that's when you talk about how you train specially to defeat messy not before the game. And obviously the first goal. It's you know, there was little he could do about it. It was such a wonderfully classic messy left-footed shot that simultaneously, look so difficult and so easy. Well, when he does it. But the second goal, obviously, it was completely blundering as he lets the ball slide underneath him with messy shooting from his weaker. Right foot even messy after the goal kind of gave a shrug of. I was not expecting that to go in. The hey, I saw the good old has actually led to goals in exactly the same way to the two best players in the world today too messy endure the disaster in the World Cup against Portugal Cristiano Renaldo shots from like a zillion meters away. I think it was in the. On the other side of the field. I mean, it was amazing similar very similar right of laying down the bulls slipping through. I mean, he's such a fantastic goalie that of people will not remember him for those mistakes. Maybe, but it said to very high profile very very hard profile mistakes against two players that I'm sure he is very sorry. I don't think is sleeping very well tonight. We will sterile. It was really terrible for him. You know? How many millions of people were watching the game today? It was really awful state. You have to feel sorry for the guy. You're absolutely right. I, you know, it's one of those things all he does seem to have a tendency to let in these these shots that are from further away that you do that seemed like the easy saves compared to some of these instinctual saves. He does I mean gives them too much time to think about it. He's seems to be a little bit prone to mistake, which is odds. But. Let me let me walk you through Willie. The I what really felt like the first seven minutes of this game. But I guess it's the first sixteen because that's when Messi scored his first goal. But I mean, Manchester United came out at the start of this game. So full of life and vigor that it was like, okay. Let's go. We're after I mean rash. I had a chance early on. He of tried to chip her stay in that didn't work at all. There was a few open channel runs and undoubtedly the Barcelona defenders looked caught off guard and you say to yourself, you know, maybe we're on track for a PS g situation, you know. And you wonder what happened because they started. So brightly, I think that that you know, soccer you, and I have talked about this many times it's really a game of inches had the he's court had Rashtra scoring that first minute there. Yeah. Thirty nine don't even touch the ball had. He's core that goal and it didn't work said, but not whites that badly many actually touched the the bar had. He scored that goal. Who knows what would have happened? Right. But he didn't run. And I think coming close may be I don't know what happened, but the they started very brightly in and the very bright light really shut them very very quickly. In those say Messi score fifteen minutes later that was over the game completely. Collapsed collapsed itself. But here's the thing. I mean, you say what happened, and this is to me what happened which was I always felt that Manchester United had a chance on the counter attack that between Marcial and rash verd- today. Lingered and pogo who played was playing. Well in the beginning. They you say, you know, this is a team with a lot of speed Barcelona can be a little vulnerable that that there is that's the opportunity, but I know that I very, you know, boastfully was like Manchester United or go win this leg. I don't know. If my heart was fully behind that prediction because Barcelona are what they are. The question always was do Manchester United as much as they have a chance on the counter-attack. Do they have any chance defending against Barcelona? And that's what happened is that? You're right. Barcelona didn't touch the ball in those first few minutes and Manchester United hit a few chances. It didn't work. But as soon as Barcelona kind of got the ball we were torn apart. We were very fortunate penalty was calling. It's Fred for tackling. Rackets var- overruled it. I think rightfully so he did seem to get the ball. It was a I think a very nice implementation of our he called the penalty. It was reviewed. The whole thing was done in less than a minute felt like very nicely done. But messy was then just cutting us apart his first goal such a thing of beauty such a classically messy goal. But it was again, you know, Manchester United defenders giving the ball away in a silly position. And just unable to keep up with messy, specifically and messy was just tearing us apart all of Barscelona. And that's what happened. It was. We had a chance going forward because you think. Yeah. Marcial rash? Ver- lingered pogo these are talented players. But are I mean, frankly, the rest of the midfield very questionable and our defense? Just not up to it. Not in a million years small Jones, forget it. They're not world class defenders they cannot compete at this level Lindelof. Maybe I don't know. He's still a ya. Guy who's playing out of position. But you know, we were just exposed for the defensively weak team comparatively not a world class defensive team. And that's where we're playing on the world stage. I mean, a lot of things that that you said are right than and they wanna comment on, you know, first of all the team to me looks like they're playing all sucker. Look like, they're playing in early two thousands year two thousand sucker, you know. It's a Maureen type of team I think that though it's being managed much better. Much more sympathetically much empathetic -ly with much freedom. I have to say that that this is a team that was billed by morning you and the style of moody anyway, thank and that's why I think he's out of job right now. You know, he has been really overtaken by the club's by the two shells by the, you know, Allegra even certainly the war deal us and the Patino, you know, I think that this is a team that that the looks plotting that looks old David the hair, you know, he is a terrific goalie, but he's a goalie in the old mole. I mean, he is not very good with his feet, his not aggressive. I mean, you know, if you so up there Stegman he was constantly passing the ball. He's the guy that starts old the plays. I mean, he was like an outfielder rather than the goalie in this particular game. You know, I I see Manchester United build by a coach that was that is a little bit out of touch with with new modern sucker when you look at Ajax this afternoon on you, look good, Manchester City look at Liverpool. I mean, you know, there are teams are playing so much faster. So so much faster. And the and the food bowl is is is a little bit league. The dodge full of of the late seventies. You know, it's the the complete football. Everybody's playing every single position. So I, you know, there's no doubt moody, new even himself wanted to get a better defensive defensive certainly the weakest link in this chain for Manchester United, but the whole team I think is seeing Lexa Sanchez beautiful at the end of the game. But you know, they're people that I think don't be. Along. I mean. Longest strong. A word is just there are little bit playing with a burial fashioned system. But the big question for you is what to do with Pol Pot. But I mean, this is a player that is sold talented. What's wrong with him? I mean pe- disappeared today. We're once he what's he, you know, you have a guy like Bruce gets much older than him. And that he plays so beautifully so position. So masterful strategically I mean, he he gave a masterclass when save men and boys. I mean boost gets pug back is a fantastic example of what you were saying who's good was in every single play. It seemed like there were you know, ten of him where was bought back. He disappeared. This is a guy that is supposed to me here world champion. He really. Really place a wealth for France. In makes you wonder why he is. So, you know, not a factor in this games. What's your what's your what's your thought? About Booker Willie. Lemme tell you my thoughts on my my good friend Paul pug. We know listens to the show. I've talked about this with read, obviously, another my fellow Manchester United fan, and we differ a little bit in our opinions. But it seems so it to me my perception of the situation, especially in the last couple of weeks is that polka doesn't really want to be at Manchester United anymore or that he's a player who's head is to easily turned, you know, I think to me it feels like polka and grease Mun and za Dan are all colluding to play together and Real Madrid next season. And they just wanna play and have a good time. And it's the if it's not fun. He's not all that interested in it. And and he's and he's tied his persona to being fun. And that if so if football's not fun, then something's wrong, and you know, but. You're you're professional. You're an athlete, and it's there's going to be hard times as well. It's not all fun and games. All the time. It's not just playing with your friends on the school yard. So what I love to to keep pobox and worked to get the best of him. Yes. In an ideal world, surely I'd love to be building our midfield around Pogue. But I get the sense that he's always going to be a player season after season who's the rumors are going to swirl around. You know is he going back to Juventus one season is he going to Madrid? The next season is going to Barscelona the season after that. How long before the PS g rumors start? I feel like that's always going to be a part of it. And I think he is a player who feeds into it. He's not the kind of player who shuts it down. Whether he likes the talk or whether it's true. I don't know. But he doesn't shut down these rumors. He doesn't make you feel like he's one hundred percent committed to the cause. And I only want players who are one hundred percent committed to the cause. So if that's the case, and that's the sense. I get to from him as a fan. No question on his best days a world class player. But there's enough days where he does disappear like you're talking about. So in my sense. I'd rather sell him and bring in players who who want to be there, and who are really committed who just who give you know sense that they'd be rather be anywhere else. That's my thoughts. You know, I I really think that there. There's a mystery going on. A menu. You know, I don't know what it is. But Massino so Marcial such a wonderful player. He disappears. I mean, you know, again today was like where west he, you know, the head is very bright ten first minutes as you said into game. And then he was gone. I mean, you don't see them, you know. It's just amazing to me how you can disappear. Her from you know, a game the way they do it in a pulp log is a big guy. And I don't know when you compare you talk about people committed ride because Phil Jones is committed. Right. But when you talk about people that are committed on the side, you know, this Jordi Alba wasn't incredible player is Bruce Katz. I thought played beautifully became, you know, playing, you know, all this people are over thirty. They're playing beautifully rights messy what a tremendous game should deliver. Even Suarez, you know was selfish. Selfless today, not can self itself. And he really play. So well could team you, you know, here's a team made of stars that somehow find a way to play together. And you know, they they care they're committed in your words to give it all. And they're still celebrities are still stars, you know. And I think that's the beauty of teams like Barcelona teams like Manchester City, you know, where you have this individual. Players that are fantastic. But somehow they want to play together. And I think you're right pug, but sort of looks miserable. I mean seems like he doesn't wanna play with them. I mean, you know, it's it's a mystery to me. But today when you really look good. A team lead Barcelona menu looks I think very very tired and very very poor in the you know, I'm sorry to say that the remember I said that there were two teams that maybe didn't belong in the last eight one was port a port. The one was a menu and proving her act. I think the prove. Yeah, that they unfortunately, proven, correct. Yeah. I mean, it's it's sad to think when you think how much money Manchester United has spent in the last several seasons, and you feel like how many of these players really would you still want on the team if you could start from scratch, and frankly, I feel like you're counting one hand for sure. And maybe on just a couple of fingers. It's it's disappointing. I'm curious your thoughts on something though Willie. What did you make of Coutihno 's celebration after scoring his goal? I mean, I feel like he has had a rough time. I mean, you know, he hasn't been scoring goals. Obviously the goal he scored today shows you what classy has. But is he a player who you think is is committed to the long haul or is just like, you know, what I don't need this. I wanna move on. I think is committed. I think he would love to stay in Barcelona mersal on this committed to continue. You know, I think Tino is no heavy is no. Unrest. Aena STA, and you know, those are continuous supposed to come in and play a little bit that role. And you know, I don't know if you've noticed the applause that Arthur received today from from the Barcelona. Fans in how little applause Tina got in. I was really strange. I mean, they actually were they come out of the field. The, you know within the few minutes apart in Arthur, God, you know, so much more on the lesion life teen, you, you know, I I don't follow the local press. I don't know if he has say things that have turned the fans against him or even the coach. But the certainly the as you said the celebration by putting his hands to his ears and little lemme here now seem to be a little bit of a chip on the shoulder. I don't think they're going to keep him. And I think he would be sorry to leave salon. Listen you play for lever. Pull your play for Barcelona. Any step will be a step down either of those two teams. So I don't think he's gonna be delighted to leave. But I do think his going you got to wonder if he, you know, is there any regret on his part on leaving Liverpool who have just ascended even higher since he left, you know, and he's struggled, obviously, since then you wonder you wonder, but you know, it's this is this is the pro for Salonga and Liverpool plead different games. I think different styles lever police so fast. And I think could teen you, you know, being more of a of a knee. Cabbie style of ticket taco passing. You know, I think club wasn't old that you're club wasn't old that sad too. Good rid of Tina for verb price because Tina was holding the ball a little bit too long for his style. And it seemed to me I actually when when that transaction happened that it was a really good move for Barcelona. I don't understand why it hasn't really worked all that. Well, and because we could shot what an off on. Today now. Yeah, she I think who knows work is going to go, and you know, move. He's gonna end up in China making like zillion dollars a year. But it will be I like I enjoy really enjoy watching him. And I don't know why of Verde really has present play him more many of the fact that he played him today. Obviously, he has some confidence. But yeah, I think is on his way out than than. It's too bad. Because I think is a good player in. I enjoy watching him play. So I'm a little bit mesmerized by the unhappiness of Barcelona with him because I do think that he would stay puncher. Puncher do Pol Pot by where I think you're right. He has sort of lost the joy of playing Manchester United. I think with Tina still very happy on our. He seems to be. It's hard. Not to be right, right. I would think. Jordy. It's like it's a dream to be in the team thing. Now looking ahead slightly Willie. This is a little bit premature obviously as we still have to play the game. But assuming that Manchester City make a dignified comeback are you eagerly anticipating a pep Guardiola return versus Barcelona in the semi-finals changing magin. And soccer is so I bet you're going to happen. Just because soccer is like that. Right. I mean, I feel always twists in ways that, you know, people watch themselves look in the mirror in the past. And that would be an unbelievable match to watch you feel badly for Tottenham. I mean, it's like it's almost as though fate has interceded and as decided, no, no we've got potential for a real epic clash in the semifinals that that we must. We must all experience and nothing would make me happier than to see pep Guardiola lose Barscelona. The ideal way, really. It'd be a very hard game for me too. I don't even know who I would really be rooting for. But I'm gonna tell you tilling Lieber pool is another great final. I mean, you know to me you're really looking. I mean, again, I know that I am bias. But Manchester City Liverpool Barscelona. Yeah. I think the are the three top teams in Europe in the world, and for them to have made it to the semi-final his sole super exciting and the age exit just a fantastic bit of fresh air and so forth, but you know lever. The only thing that I don't wanna see him going to tell you. I would hate to see a Liverpool. Manchester City final. Yeah. On now. I agree with you there. That would. I mean, we just we get we we're privileged enough that we do get to see that multiple times in the season already that. Yeah. I I agree. You wanna see a little international flair Willie? Any other thoughts on this one before we move onto Juventus and Ajax? No, I think that we'll come back to them because I think it was a beautiful goal. And it was a beautiful save by Thurston? So those are one of five we'll come back to in some way. Okay. But anyway, I'm really sorry. Max, I I'm trying to really sound very sympathetic to your got a stiff upper lip Willie. I'm very mature. Sorry that slipped out. I. This is sometimes the feet like this one you see. Just a second longer on this on this game, the five of Manchester United beat PS, gee, gave them a hope that there were better than they were. And you know, I think defeated like today where you really good trash Joe like they trash two zero at Old Trafford. This is this is the type of the feed that I think will clear the sinuses of all of the suits at Manchester, United and decide to spend some money to get better. You know, I think this is a feat is the best thing that could happen to Manchester United for next year. I agree. That's that is true. And if we had kept stumbling our way through the rest of the season to greater heights. We would be you know, God forbid that they think that less investment is necessary. So you are correct there. I asked to. Juventus won the the the children from acts move more than three two on aggregate over the old lady. It was Cristiano Renaldo of all people in the twenty eighth minute who opened the scoring with classic Cristiano header, and you really thought. Okay, we're done. This is over. Now they had the advantage with the away goal. Now. They got another goal and we're in HOA, wait mere minutes later. Donny vanderbeek in the thirty four th minute with a goal, and then the nineteen year old captain Mataya lit in the sixty seven th minute with eight just funder header jumping over I think to defend his defenders in between. I mean now, we do get the flip side of men against boys and the boys defeated all the money and all the experience that you could possibly, you know, have in Juventus one of my pre-tournament favorites to win it all and we have these these kids and. This is not some anomaly Willie where you're like. Oh, man. These little kids. They were lucky. They slipped through. They were just better. Better. Unbelievable giant killers. You know, they actually go of Real Madrid them they made them look so incredibly badly couple of weeks ago three weeks ago and Juventus also look, you know, they're playing at home. I mean, it's incredible to see them so on their back heel and losing the initiative, and you know. I it was beautiful. And and you know, the opportunity to watch the sa- game at a at a bar here. I'm traveling and to watch the bar most people were there to to really watch men of Barcelona menu. And I can tell you how people start to turn their attention perfectly when Barcelona score the second goal to this game and the electricity in the bar the way that people were cheering most of the didn't even though jugs was and they were just so enthralled by the. The brilliant incisive attacking football. They were playing I think it's they're fantastic. I mean, the the guts the comas this people this kids have on bullyboy and they play in. I don't think they have much to lose. And they play like it. But they have the skill and this a beautiful I thought it. It's one of the most exciting teams that I've seen longtime. I love them against Real Madrid. I thought it was a fluke. But now, you know, seeing them against Juventus twice their relive their the real thing. I mean, they're the real thing. I hope the team will stay mostly together. We know that some of their. Stars are leaving this summer. But it's a it's a beautiful team to watch. It's so amazing to watch them. I mean, you know, they have obviously that you that you've comes a certain level of immaturity. I mean, a few kind of passes that you wish that, you know, especially niche today, I don't think you had his best day, but they just believe in themselves. Like no team. I think I've seen all season. They believe in themselves more than anyone else. They never count themselves out of the game. They never looked to lose their composure and as the game goes on there just a team that seems to gain more focus and more precision. They just get eye on the prize, and they they latch onto it. And it's so amazing to watch. I mean, I was when I saw the team that event is fielded today. I was like all right. They're going for it. They wanna win at home. I mean, we we attack see demolished starting with Cristiano Renaldo Bernadette ski as well playing. I mean, this is a pretty offensive lineup from. Intas, and I asked made them look totally on on their back heels. They just could not get comfortable with themselves. And I asked looked so just fantastic passing the ball every which way finding space creating space more importantly by overloading one side and finding players totally open on the other side. It was so cool to watch. And you gotta love them. I mean, this this group of total underdogs. I mean, I have I'm so happy for deuce on Todd itch. I mean, this guy who was just a really kind of secondary player at Southampton. And now, he's you know in the semifinals of of the of the Champions League. It's such a fantastic story to witness, and as you say, you know, it was like well Real Madrid or clearly a shadow of themselves. You know, beating them, you know, what does that fully worth? We don't know. Seeing them in these two games against Juventus. I'm not saying like, oh, they're the favourite by any means. But they I I firmly believe they have as good a chance to win the Champions League as anyone else. They can they can beat anyone by the way, they played against Juventus. These last two games. I mean, I think Juventus as certainly in the top five teams in Europe. And you know, they'd be them. They have a very tall order thought or are or Manchester City than the Benchley Lieber Pula Barcelona. You're really you're talking about about true royalty. But I have to tell you. This is a remarkable performance today. There were absolutely sharper there were stronger. And you know, max what really impressed me is for being. So young inexperience have composed. They were used the word, you know, they didn't get a single a single one yellow card in. There was in against a team that you now gets under your skin Gallini wasn't playing so sort of thing but the get but new. And not exander was there. They're really dirty, and they really get under your skin and for this kids because they are right. Nineteen twenty year olds to be haved the way they did to keep their heads to get absolutely no yellow cards in the game of this level with everything on the table. I was impressed with their discipline. I mean incredibly pros with their skill. But the way that they play without losing their head. And at the end, you know, when when Juventus was trying everything to score a goal the way that they play like, they didn't stop attacking. I mean, it was the eightieth minute. They could've actually make time role on the Browns fake a cramp in done. So many of the tricks that we hate and they didn't take it on playing the attacking these core. Third goal that was you know, council because of side in the build-up. But there were so beautiful to watch untested max. This was really why we watch soccer. It's it was beautiful. It was really terrific. Yeah. I mean, you're you're right. And there is kind of changing of the guard. Right. I mean, Juventus you talk about Manchester United playing soccer and kind of the old way and Juventus. I think follows that model as well bars. And you. Look at the teams that are potentially moving on to the semifinals, and you save, you know, Barcelona I've always kind of been in their own world and they play so well season after season I ax now. I mean, they're just so usefully exuberant as you say, there's not there's no cynicism in the way, they play it's just beautiful forward momentum. And then you look at you know, city and in the disciples of Guardiola continuing to spread across Europe and potentially Schettino as well, and you and Klopp, obviously, potentially and you have this very exciting. You know, it's it's it's excellent to see that soccer's potentially moving into direction where you can really play very beautifully at the highest level. And that that is the expectation and the key to victory, and it's not. It's you know, anything else and we saw too because this is the beauty of soccer, right? You'd think of Barcelona where you know, messy Israeli like this experts arrests Cheryl player in everything works through him, a still very much Otis Leah a team after but messy is the center of gravity there. Then you have Ajax where you have a team to team, you know, the couple of some stars minor stars stars, nevertheless, but they don't exist as an entity on their own. They're also very woven into the way the game though, they've they play the game. And you know, it's one lovely move. After another is creative passing is knowing where the the other players are playing the empty spaces with such fluidity. I mean, it's just. Riffing? And and and you know, the fact that they don't have a true star to is is brilliant droid the way that they have played this game and shown like Juventus in Real Madrid. Fool of stars. How team work is so much more powerful in in like this. I I love them. I think are terrific. And you know, it's a it's a I think I need to go back memory here to think of Berkeley, Manchester City odiously wins tomorrow of a more exciting set of semi-finalists there. The four semi-finalists are like why I mean? Wow. The games are going to being credible in seeing Manchester City again in the mind be there goes Irv behind but play against Ajax and than Barscelona labor pool. I mean, I could not imagine a better match. It's going to be fantastic. You're absolutely right. And you know, it's a it's a true testament to access that are kademi that they're just seen manufacturing growing these players one after another, you know, it seems that, you know, they're going to lose some players as summer, but you know, it seems like there's new new little babies to take their place. I'm gonna tell you. We we always talk about the players, but tremendous tremendous credits to the coach of this kid's right to be able to give them this confidence to give them this joy of playing of telling him basically going have fun go on play. I mean the way he was pushing them at the end to attack to attack on let you know, the they didn't change their style goal. A fun score goals. Movable? Don't worry. Yeah. And that I think's tremendous tremendous credit to a coach that believing that youth, and that leads of play that way, you know. It's no I I think it's we have in in. I think that coach is going to I don't know if we're gonna say at Ajax much longer just because he has. Done such a masterful job of orchestrating this this young players. You're absolutely right. You you alluded to it in the semi-finals that we're looking ahead towards now. It's a little premature. We don't know what happens tomorrow, but you know, semifinals have a reputation of being a little bit a little bit cynical little dour little bit low scoring, and you kinda wonder how could it possibly be with this team? All of these teams are so offensively minded, and you know, they they don't typically play much of a cynical game. I'm really particularly excited for these semifinals, but Willie I had important question for you of this game. That is just really occurred to me how you know how good or the text messages that daily blend is sending back to the Manchester United players this season, as he, you know, discarded by Manchester United is now in the semifinals with aks, you know, I mean, I feel like he's. Got a really feel because he never really got his feet underneath him at Manchester United, and he's just now he's back in it. And he's excelling back at I axe. Makes you mix. You wonder, you know, it's always players again. It's players somehow finding finding a groove. You know, finding other players to to feed off again, I really think the coaches out annoy he was under moving or that was before. It was our old friend Louie Louie. Exactly, right. Those guys are may be castrating. You know, minuted you need to let people play with exuberance. And you know, this is what some coaches, certainly, marina those understand. You know, it's not about the coach is really about the players. And when the coach takes, you know, castrate players reduces their creativity to play within the system. I think you playing with fire and undelighted to see someone that could have been, you know, completely this gusted with with his professional career research like this. Right. I mean, and then you have people that delare there. Another. It's a fantastic story. It's a fantastic story. And you know, for people that like sports like we do this last couple of days, you know, this is a very different game goal. But to see Tiger Woods, you know. Come by talking about this cynicism. Uncowed people don't really, you know, get excited anymore because sports are becoming so mechanical, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. But you have this moments of joy, you know, you have this moments of excellence, you have this moments of grit this moments of of human spirit breaking through all of that. And a today just you know, it was that that spirit that breaks through, you know, the the bureaucracy the the money the the football the old lady of Juventus. It was it was great. It was a great story braid restore. Indeed. Really? Are you ready to move onto our awards? Yes. Please goal of the day. I mean, you gotta love Messier's first goal. You gotta love Coutihno goal. I'm going to give a shout out. It's not going to be my winner. But you gotta give a shout out to Cristiano Ronaldo's header just because he took such the long way around to get to this. I mean, it was like the whole scrum of players, and he just runs entire circumference to get around to everyone. And then still gets their totally unguarded for the head. I was cracking up watching that goal for me though. I mean, you know, it's a tossup between Messier's first and Coutihno. But I think I'm going to give it to Katina because those I've just a sucker for those kind of outside the box top corner goals. Hard to argue with that again, you know, just let's not forget that those goals were really meaning less. I mean, the first one of messy was very meaningful because he was like you said was was shot that killed menu. But tina's goal knows beautiful as it was. I don't know. It wasn't old that meaningful was beautiful to watch the hander from the linked. You know that actually a broad Ajax two of the the semi-final. It wasn't very pretty. But it was so well done, right. I mean jumping really social. Hi and perfectly executed Heather wasn't a speedy as as MRIs, but I have to say that at least for me created more emotion, and it was really a-. I mean, I jumped when would like, wow what a great goal when. Illegal activity hit that ball and scored it really made me jump. So I'm gonna give it out of not pregnant, but just a joy. Very. I can't believe he got to that. As you say. I mean, his ability jumped so high and through so much so much, you know, in his way, I it's astounding and for emotional impact, your correct that goal is is certainly the king. Now save of the day. I think we're going in different directions. Because I even though it didn't work. I'm not gonna make any jokes right now. It's still sore. But. For me. Even though they ultimately lost Hsieh's ni had two outstanding saves that up until that point work Roussel saves. They weren't losing. But his saves two of them in pretty quick succession. We're really very good. I thought those were you know, it's again, you know, a player can kind of reinvent themselves. And you think this guy was so tortured in many ways at arsenal. And now, he's you know, he's he's proven to be quite quite solid for for Juventus. And I thought his saves were really great. I think that she has to himself a little bit more. I mean, this is the problem with the hill. So I mean when you look at it guy like. The Brazilian goalies. That are not playing the Premier League, you know, mid tween as an Allison looks really scary guys there shouldn't. I mean, I have to say that. I agree. I mean, he actually kept Juventus in the game of the game could have actually been over ten minutes earlier, but I'm gonna tell you the one that I really like as a save because there was a little bit more aesthetically pleasing if meaningless but aesthetically pleasing so here, I go, reverse right mess. His goal was or Katina's goal was more steady could pleasing but meaningless here in terms of the save of the day. I'm gonna give it to the aesthetic Lee pleasing rather meaningful save and that was terrorist. Agains save on Alexis. Sanchez Heather the last minute of the game just to give my news. Sort of a little bit more airtime here on your podcast felt that that was a beautiful beautiful safe in in that in that vein of aesthetically pleasing, but maybe less it looked better than it may be was was the save of Nana against deba-. You know, it wasn't necessarily the most difficult shop, but he really got like an excellent horizontal jump in. You know, he fully feel like totally parallel to the ground by the time. He caught that ball. And so for style points Nana, excellent work. I know. I don't think is going to stay at age exer- long either. Yeah. Yeah. All these young all these young guys there. It's it's so inspiring celebration of the day. I mean, you know, we talked about eighteen yo and his kind of. You know, aggressive celebration towards his own fans, but to me as you kind of lewd it too. I mean, just the emotion of I axis goals. So fantastic. The videos of them after the game coming down their own the tunnel back into the dressing room. These guys are over the moon, and it's hard not it's infectious their joy, it's infectious. No, it's a it was just terrific you that the the celebration as you said was well, I mean, hey, it was a spectacular win in the spectacular game in spectacular setting. So you know, it wasn't like made up joy. I mean, they were very very good reason to be so elated they deserve it. But it was as you said, very true sincere. They were really I mean, they didn't sort of you know, how a lot of this liberations now a little bit like football players are confirmed bowl players have the train the whole week there moved to celebrate. When this core. Touchdown. I feel that a lot of the celebrations in soccer. Now, you know, they've been thinking about it, and they have little sort of convoluted. Little hint signals in. Thank this was a true just old fashioned jumping into their arms pumping the air. It was really a no there was no choreography. Collateral now, though, you know, this was a true spontaneous joyful celebrating. So I agree a hundred percent with you think that's the celebration of the day Willie. You telling me, you're not constantly practicing your celebration. So that your Instagram ready? I mean, you know, you gotta though that I come into my classroom, and they do be Ronel jumped on move, my arms to the side might tie off break, my shirt, Baden's and. The watch. And you wonder you wonder you wonder why you need surgery? No. Let me ask you what? I mean. I don't know. I mean, I would I think Juventus, you know. He'll no, no. I think he'll stay. I that's my I haven't really given it much thought. But I imagine he'll be staying Juventus, and they'll give it another go. And if it doesn't work next year, then maybe then it's over he might be jailing those Vegas. Yeah. We'll we'll see about that as well. I'm waiting for one of these times. He's thirty three what is going on thirty four or he's already thirty four one of these celebrations. I feel like he's going to do one of those jumps and come down and his knees just going to buckle underneath him. And that's going to be it. That's going to be the moment forgo to us. Another important question. You're always will inform of this things worse for Lanny. He went off to China. Right. Is he going? Yeah. He's in China. I can't get a little struck him. And I said, hey would have been a good game to put him in there. Yeah. No. He he he left in January and he plays for. I've just looked this up. This is just coming in hot off the presses. He plays at shun dung Luneng Tyson. Oh, yeah. Militant very well. Not so well following them. Clearly, I mean, he already. Shuki where is going to join him. So I mean, it's going to be a serious goal situation. Fellini already has fifty goals for them. You know, all heads. I think they're card hairstyle. But just wanted to congratulate you because we had this conversation last week about what happened to Shaquir. Remember, I saw can play exactly two and a half minutes against Chelsea so his alive and his well, and he looked cerebral. I'm hoping for a great big game from him against Porto tomorrow, but we'll you did inspire me into creating a last minute award, which is best case to be made for spending big in the summer. And you got to give it to Manchester United see we win willy we win award. And it's that we desperately need desperately need reinforcements. But but there we have it. We have our first two semi-finalists Barcelona an I ax one not a surprise at all the other a fantastic surprise super exciting really super exciting in on girl. Much looking. Forward to one game tomorrow let you guess which one of the two I know. I hope to be talking to you in a couple of weeks and deed, anti we will we will check back in in the semi-finals willy. And I I really genuinely wish you just the absolute best of luck tomorrow against Tottenham. My wishes and thoughts and prayers prayers. There with you there with you, sir. I know that you being, you know, Manchester United you are rooting for city. I mean, clearly in terms of your civic duty to make sure that Manchester the city. Is in the semifinals of of the European Champions League. I know that you are secretly rooting for months associated to turn this tie around. It's it's just not true. Your civic duty, of course. Yes. Civic duty. We'll go with that Willie as always a pleasure, and I can't wait for the semifinals together. Thank you for having me, always fun. Of course, we will be back tomorrow. Breaking down Liverpool Porto, Manchester City Tottenham read it will be back on the show then to discuss those games. And I fortunately didn't have to hear the two of us whining about Manchester.

That's what it is but it's going to be quite primarily heavy today. I. Think. We hope you will forgive us but I think it deserves it.

Tactics, strategy. Yes. So that so I'm really glad about. Those pieces because it's about an, you'll piece about embracing chaos, which is funny because you were talking about that. Two weeks before I think he wrote and published it and we're talking about. Expecting. By. Some bizarre does this season. And it was completely right like my only regret is you didn't write it. You know two weeks even I because it would have been even more press you tell you when you felt it but. My God. The Premier League this week. This weekend was. Mind blown. It was.

You had probably the best game of the season so far and Saturday a notice talking about it. No one's talking about it already so. Shall we begin with villa in Liverpool we have to I think this is really hard. Gains analyze actually think the Monday night spurs. One is a little easier to analyze by think the villa livable game is a little bit harder because when big upset slightest happen that tends to be a big sweeping judgment as to why A. Result happened people try and people trying concise it into like a a sentence. You know this this happened. This is why this happened. The thing that I thought watching the game was the. It was like a little. A load of little micro triggers. This seem to add. To the overall result and it began without. Adriana. Area. Everything Kinda came together Favila in terms of Ross. Barkley and Jack. Relish just linked up straight away and looked like they'd been playing together forever. What what struck about this performance the other day this Atletico Madrid is how you do it. This is how you do counterattack. Thirty percent possession right to pay the midfield three I'm really anger. Let even this one thing. It's it play the midfield three and the teams that basically destroyed on the counter destroyed them of midfield three, really enterprising front through the presses. Sit and wait and it's strange because. His torch by letty. The contracting team the DOT counter is bizarre is weird. It's so weird and. Villa is was I've never seen. A weekend football results of counterattacking wake base just like you could publish this as a book. Because for all the flaws of the teams that were thrashed for the flaws of united the flaws of Liverpool I want to emphasize the beauty of what? Did. Louison Mcginn. Barkley. The way they moved into changed. The way great pulled wide. It's just. It's absolutely beautiful coaching from Dean. Smith. There was such a pleasure. This was the thing the one thing that was. The thing that lessen the pain of united. Being thrashed out that. The thing that gave me immune seventeen livable defacing going to do. With enough actually because I I am. This sounds ridiculous but I was just really really happy for villa because. They had a really tough year last year. Greenish hasn't really got the shine he deserved international level. And it was always sort of fated to be kind of Lone Ranger. Villa. But with Barclay now. It was funny I sent a video to friend of mine. Shout out to Chris Slade I should send a video to Chris lead. Of the MC novelist autism as going back to back and arrived you are like dots like greenish. About. Two MC's sorry for discussing know. We said man we said that the holiday is going to be great but just. Don't. I think last week the. Massive Chelsea in the aftermath of the Westbound Chelsea game we didn't touch him West Brom's humorous because obviously Chelsea pulled them back and I think it was Lee Watkins on twitter. Up about and I think rightly so too. I. Think we we have so much to get through last week. What we do this I think we skipped over West bromilow bear what you're seeing is a really high technical level at clubs who are coming into the league. And you know slamming villages a dreadful coach in much in the same way that villa connor gave livable observer staying. West Brom did so against Chelsea by seems to be from an eye test point of view. So this is a little bit of a week theory but I think that clubs the USTA finishing or expected to finish lower down the table becoming more efficient because they have to yes actually think the way that the game has moved over the last couple of years. Allows them to do so because just the athletic level of every site in league. Now, as a base level is obscene and that allows teams like villa and West Brom to do exactly what kind of livable which has just used that biggest strength and make their biggest weakness because they have so much space now because so many teams applying high lines the directness which is I think is the key word direct football, not long ball football because I think even caught mentioned something about it. How like? Nudge played really well, they played pretty small talk patron going direct because that's the best way to escape pressing of course, signs like villa who can't afford to go to the championship in which I think is also like a really athletic strong league. You know you have a love really physical. Physical Strength in the championship is is back. To Take Ollie, Watkins from Brentford for thirty million euros and he comes in and scores the hat trick I think you're GonNa see more of that this season I. Think the one thing that I would say is the There's something going on with the high line issue. It's almost like just sticks plans to of the plan everything will be okay. Everything will be okay and we've seen now a few times. It actually hasn't been. Okay. We saw that that's what Valdez the disaster though will when pat was like. has made an opposite how early in the classic Oh, that gifted elite to rail and pet camera offers and said, no fingers is that. He just we just kept playing his game like bit to kept playing his passes and that's the thing it's almost. It's a percent purchase thing over the course of a season the choices claybin been made to keep playing that way because that's what yields the most chances. Are the time, the high line and if. That's why I think it's come out. There was a moment actually when I was talking to eighty boothroyd About companies often offered. And he was talking about. Evan. Goes Wah you mark the near Post because this goal scored and he said. A really tiny percentage of goals a school in the area that's marks because the percentage buys debate you shouldn't market because it's like six percent and scored that at that point in time. And I think the same is true with the high line, the glaring areas that we see. Make it look worse as destruction is because when it's working, we didn't notice it. We can hold like, oh but that would like to highlight. Jensen ridicule. Yeah. That's a really good point. Yeah. One saying by that is the maybe some more capable of talking hotline than they were. Buying you've seen. Modestly, elite levels. So I think you know like Liam causing some problems in the Champions League. Hatter caused a problem on the weekend came from to down to equalize and then equalised again at three hundred and ultimately lost the game due to a late penalty but still think This is I think that? As. The money swells in certain leagues. Humming. Hetero already waited with exempt unlicensed maybe but you know the signed Jeffrey on Adelaide from Leon and then just signed Mateo doozy alarms Rossi Gray sorry signing. Both and he? Thinks sons may maybe they can get source as well. I'll know. DAGDA GONNA source. You're going to. Go to school. I. The latest, we shouldn't laugh because he's the latest victim of. These. Welcome welcome here. Actually that'd be perfect. Prima he can. We may get. Kicked just to. Hire GonNA source cornstarch Soros Dot was so heartbreaking that I mean I mean could it just before we start recording so I'd like to read a little bit more about it before I really into his but yeah, anyway villa have one theft first three games of the season and looking really strong I. think the signing of Buckley is I mean all he walked into signing anyway is a really clever signing from Dean Smith and villa because it takes the load off of greenish and it takes the pressure off a great love everything about. Those two are going to cost them some trouble season hopefully. Horrible of the pitch of the pitch, but you just imagine I can imagine boxing greenish getting a Curry Birmingham. I can just so see them like A. Out In town just having like a good time not not a while just having a good time out in town I can say it paying for everyone's in the just random. Don't tell him and he just seemed like are still. As in in a car or inefficient ship show I reckon they go fish and chip shop. Comment of course, they won one of their opponents seven last season Bella. So happy for them yet because this is the thing about. Villa. Runoff did that as recently about? Tiago. Hamas bail in the piece I called up and a big club and someone's only responsible to it. However a big club how we define as a football clubs I think is a little bit warped. Sometimes you know isn't just small medium big I? Think there are the superclubs, the giant clubs that are big clubs. And I think Villanueva absolutely a big club their massive 'cause actually are like that. They are a European Cup winner a club with a massive his. Successful history when we were growing up. A big deal big deal the same with Everton the same with. On Newcastle. No let's not get twisted these big clubs but a lot the really really deep roots of the first division like without the first division with if you look if Scott stocks this season and veteran Everton to there, it's not right. Like it's not right to Everton envelope on in the mix and knowing those towns those areas. I'm just really excited that those fines of not only teams the alike. Getting great results but playing football. Thought. is those traditions by the way that villa played? That is the villa tradition that is the style. Gordon. Cowans. Front foot. Smooth passing Everton that's like seventies i. Harry Catterick DOT slights Allen Bowl dot is like. Old School the old dudes on the old women like watching those games, a season ticket holders in the eighties watching. Everton. From home at this point alike dots my effort. That's what I. Love about is recognizable and one they want about Africans well, very quickly just jumping across to them. Well, let's let's touch on episode before. Yeah Okay Eric with it. So I was thinking about this not thinking Hamas Rigas basically. Everything is like is his Columbia? Isn't it? Like if you think of like. The coach with nothing to prove. The strike Abassi finishing lot foul cow, the team built around him. Those I thought this is because when he scored his first goal. His celebration I mean I, know it was his of Tappin but just the way he celebrates his teammates and the way they clearly already love him like he's a brilliant player but he's clearly good dude I'm like dot was went when he score for Columbia they used to like. He's a popular guy. Right. They just kind of surrounded him in a pack and it just reminded me of that is he's just as happy. I haven't seen him look that happy since he played for Colombia but make sense. Yes. Santa Karachi said that she really liked. Him Pointing to Alex worby searching around the. Data. Dato. Around the will find a way and that's that's really nice. Low. TRAE in football I like when when when he knows someone who's. You've it. It's not really your goal. I love it. I. Love It. That's one of my favorite celebrations actually where people go to this just put yeah. Two goals and an assist for Hamas Rodriguez another goal for dominant combat low in your remain scored as well. Yup. I really loved the celebration remain. I mean some of the dots moves needed. But yeah, I'm here I love to collect this the slow Mo Wigley bums so good was already great. Great like. Thanks because some great booms into. New Hummel efforts in case Berry a accentuates the the bums definitely been on the stairmaster as well. That's for sure. That's the way on the stairmaster. I slow Mo wiggly boom replay. Again another really impressive for Everton who I'll tell for the league twelve goals in four games conceding a little bit as well but they've conceded. Only one point won't put goes again that conceding which. I. Think if you compare it to livable who've already conceded a third of the entire goals that they conceded in the league and an are looking supergirl I mean. Could you have imagined as much as we I say, we have a soft spot for Everton by their side that we want. Yeah. Well, we wanted to do well, could you imagine going into the October international break that they would be top the league with a maximum? Raccoon not remotely not remotely I wanNA say something about this as well. One of those results the win, they call it the Spurs. The time it was seen as sign of Spurs weakness Actually, society, we're going to reinterpret that result later as. A sign of evidence strength. Those two teams could conceivably. Be Doing something very interesting. Come March think as a bit early to call but but come much those two teams could conceivably in the mix. The could be wants that we had a question I won't from Matt Brown which Everton kids should I by asking a longtime fan who is just never publicly announced their. By the yellow on yellow. Evan KS. Amazing. Old School and go back and the ninety five cup final one. Oh, Donka. Or. Actually. I should let's let's be precipitate. Go about to be good to mid eighties mid eighties if you can. With a diamond yellow, the white diamond caller. Because actually. I want to see more like. X. Return players coming out not necessarily punditry but just like coming and doing less sensitive out spots and. Just to kind of get the heritage thing going again because they must be so. Thrilled with this. This is the best evidence I've seen since the eighty s it's just a seems like a very, very happy club at the moment especially with the women during the war in the women's Super League as well. You know another win on the weekends. Level on points with Arsenal they are called a looking really good as another really really great week forever and as a as a whole for Colorado not as well despite I think do doing probably a little bit of a job at Napoli than people gave him credit for this. His stock fool a little bit. As a manager I don't think that's fair to say, I think that after the stints at PSG and buying I think that people. Were starting to question a little bit. I really loved his post-match interview were just said football's a simple game young players. You know the the pitch, the same size, the goals, the same. You have good players. You don't really you know like he was basically downplaying the coaching. You just go play with them in the right places to sounds like, yeah but actually. Thoughts a type of coaching interesting though in a season of chaos, a simple approach is cutting true. Yeah. No I think you're right. Let's go to a break just before we do WANNA ratliff a couple of questions because we've kind of covered himself. Sarah Surgery Hope for is our sorry. We'll villa win the league. Will it be favorites? Appleton Holly Belene says had Fila. Now moved into the catfish category based on the result. And start to the season and the signings remain. I think personally, I'll just say don't worry about it. Don't worry about whether you're catfish. and. Just just enjoy and we'll see basically in the wall, but I don't think because there was speculation that the start the season that one imitations. Yeah. You can't be the have to be expectations that I with the enough. Everton. Didn't have those waters rotations because we downgraded. We told you know just let them play football. Let them just have fun to be honest I think when I when I saw villa stay up. Kind of happy for them and just staying up his just stay open console day if you can. That's a big deal. Ashburton. Similarly, when Hamas is went there are just like Oh look okay good. He'll be happy they're by just go to global you'll be happy ANCELOTTI. Great. Highest. There was no kind of they didn't targets on their backs Sosa thing Chelsea target the back, which is why they are on the front runners. For this thing I think tubs confidence. Yeah. They have to be just any club the it makes a big outlay. I think united as well because United's big out late in the window as well puts them in the window The kind of perennial honesty not their perennial for that. And final ones before we get to a break Christian Christian brody says who should be the new united managed to which Lewis Arnold responded Dane Smith. These mystery. That's. I'll stuff. I'm going to meet him officer back. From the break. We have to go there must got to Old Trafford. Yup. Yup Talk about your. Beloved Bunches United Stateless. Dirt. Lost six goals to one against Tottenham. Hotspur. I mean. Where do we even this is basically the whole of the second half against Southampton. In nine minutes for Spurs. Though this was. Not An let let me try and laws in a way that is fair to spurs the stunning performance Bozo. Is Wrong critical of united in a way that is. Original Watching the all or nothing. Documentary was interesting because you see the roots of what Marino was trying to come to fruition here. The improvement in a dumb belay. You know. It's funny because when in Dunblane had a bad start a spurs, my initial reaction was as Maria off you see the documentaries a bit more nuanced that were challenges in adopting. But now Dunblane is. The player that. You should be and sub made a great point. Maria, deserves great credit for that. Is Funny because you had bail you've bale his injured but I actually think this. Arguably. Spurs his best. Eleven tons of best attempts to balance best starting eleven. because. I'd maybe swap out Lamelo for bail. I'm not sure though because I think that the Medicare I thought this first but then I thought actually as a starting eleven. intangible. Things that gives the grit. The by the work ethic the graft. It's like it's like Petra. Petra and better play Van Dovid via. But in certain contexts. Petra was a better person to combine within vehicles in certain contexts. Because he fits the configuration he fits the kind of nasty. Marina. Once right now, I think that Lamelo is the kind of interesting sort of experts from this team bails a better player, but in tons of fit for Walt Spas. With doing. I'm not sure that bail would have been more destructive than Lameta was. That has a weird thing to say, but it's how I sort of. He's almost a kind of Amino type player in terms of the intensity, he brings to the press. So I WANNA, give credit to stop with because I. Mean Let's let's carry on unspecified it. Can we move on to? Get like I. Think Brush because it was not I think one of the things that I was one of the players I was super impressed with with APEC. Because we said the I think the beginning of the season, the the signings of Hoy and. DAUGHERTY. For West Buzz One, it's A. Felt. Quite underwhelmed. Yeah I. Don't think that's massively hauch but what this has done and actually maybe be have been pretty small. Is. It's given them genuine options and options full different configurations. Yes. and. I think that the the balance that not midfield. Gave with Hoiberg Soco, and. I thought was like genuinely eye-catching cerberu fields. It was a it was a configuration I didn't think would be something that they would room with often the season however in terms of how it fit I mean, maybe this is a bit in thanks to Manchester United Midfield, but it just looks pretty good and if I was looking through the bench Ben Davies on the bench, who I think is really really good left battle. Toby all divide was on the bench. Deli Allie was on the bench. Now we know the issues around. Great option. Harry Wings mocked ot and Lucas Mora. Now, that is actually A super super strong eleven and bench because one of the things that absolutely killed spurs last season was the lack of bet. Also bail to come back as well. Exactly and obviously M. Vinicius. Yes. Oh Wow. Yeah. We can link to Manchester United Insect but I think for my point if you we've been a little bit critical spurs and rightly. So as we mentioned before Reno when we were talking about him being kind of intergalactic smuggler of old Han, solo kind of Guy Yeah on Analia sort of study over on the ring this is one of those times where he comes up good but there's also that motivation there you know he. Wouldn't get to Old Trafford and make a point. Yes I'm still a little bit on the fence about whether this will be able to turn into something long term. That's really really great for spurs just because there's always that element of never been too far away from just imploding with Marino thing. However, I think that there are signs of positivity that for Spurs, and they looked really really good on the weekend. They did they did they raided good. They don't Chris I think this is the thing. Sorry on opening rumbling. Teams Looking. Jaded. There's actually a point I want to touch talk about this before we wrap up from the pre-olympic book. Sewn and Kane looked like as good as I've seen the much like it's been recovering from the injury though this thing the hamstring injury got started the pandemic he's had his rest at his condition and he was so determined. So desperate to get back, they call these things in Boscombe intangibles the intangibles of hurricanes desperation to get back to where he was. And he's recovered from that and the hailing his recuperation is wit his recuperation period perfectly aligned with the pandemic right? So hurricane is probably in his in his best shape that he's been in for awhile, and now the attacking burden has been lifted bales psychologically you haven't got to ritual. Then you've got the intangible stuff apply Soco Soco actually I think for both France and spas is that a couple of occasions where? Because of the lack of technicians for spurs and within that time to Franz he was person attacking positions that went really his forte a now that he doesn't have to worry about. Being goal scoring a dish or some the Hasta like finished chances open a position to finish. It can shuttle ready effectively right. So now he has a row unlimited reef where it's like. Break up play also initiate and he's super happy. So like all these things. You've got, you look around the Pitch Nicholas bars players and is the opposite of what Marino had to some extent united. Everyone fits. Holy Bash like never fully got his props. Munich whenever guys Johnson Munich for various reasons. Alex Burke is never really got his shine and this is a play with real pedigrees. So proud football who's Fani is platform like his moment. And it's really exciting older and there's all this sort of. Before, got bit of an edge. If we'll got point to prove. They got a bit nasty. and. The stars are kind of. The stars aligning for them as a bit. It implies. Apply applies it implies it's not by design and implies it's more by Luck I. Don't think so much I think it's actually The perfectly placed to take advantage of. The chaos because in time when other teams, a chaotic results accounting spas note that doing. It just seems a little bit quieter than it was on the opening weekend of the season where it was looking like it could be really quantified. Full Ashley Elettra downstairs Arenas Belgian down. You know as a seven to in the week six one on the weekend I mean I don't think. Marino. After the Newcastle game would've been able to I. Don't think could have hoped for a week that they've had considered in the fixture pile-up they've had. Yeah. But shall we move onto? Manchester United. Yes. She said with the question. Yes. Okay. From different. From Christine Kupa shot up to Christine should have been fired yesterday or yesterday and can they afford poach weighed one can't his thing they can't afford not to point Porch Tina. Praised it that way the con- afford not to appoint him Footballing, perspective the sad thing is, of course. And the tragedy of Manchester United Thought. That it Chris permanently falling from the sky. They thought they could club while not caring about football. Beethoven was actually going to work and it's not it's never gonNa work and they are now a demonstration of what can never ever happened to club is interesting people going around new call. So don't have this these people by you and it's like the West in many ways. The worst hasn't quite happened because there is still worse owners of united out there possibly. But united almost as bad as it can get. Almost by in terms of ownership. should SOCIA- have been sucked yesterday? No because? Kim yesterday you suck months before that. The flows that were apparent yesterday been powerful. And Looking at united you know the mark of. Of riddick coach is to improve players. Marino struggled at the start with says he's improved dumbly. On sheltie has proved Cavaillon beyond recognition. Altered has approved. So many players also magician his tragedy authentic tragedy is that in a season where all he needs is one more signing to galvanize that team. He probably won't get DOT Szottford his tragedy whatever happens to this year. Will Not be for lack of auditors equality and it will not leave lack of his players making an effort. They just don't have the extra adamant that they deserve. Soul. Shaya. Deserves criticism at the moment but. On an individual basis. The entire performance was summed up by Harry. Maguire? The opening goal from says the fact that he failed to get header after Polka lackluster script does books. By heads it then three occasions. Maguire has to clear the bull and ends up pulling his own player to the ground in desperation trying to get to the pool and Claret. He has such a lack of spatial as that moment that he's trying to pull his own player. WHO's better place back Lakeshore Portsmouth ground. At. Any gets up and he starts shouting FNL's embarrassment ready. You know that moment you you'll shout. Yourself. I thought to myself. This is symptomatic. Of the fact that they don't have a plan. You know players talk players toward each other clubs and I'm sure there were rumblings of disquiet. Dean's during these drills and Graham's got US doing this caller. Got Us doing this and you're talking to your people coming. Why like we? We we haven't. We haven't worked on any of this. Make sense like I'm sure there's a disquiet. In the not scored about. The lack of direction from so shy I, think he's a really tricky situation a bonus because I think you have this weird thing with social. I, think he's quite popular within the Dresser Yep Yep caveat with the fact that like you say that doesn't seem to be a huge amount of coaching taking place. I might be wrong because I'm not a man she's now if I'm not super plugged into. Your twitter for example but From what could gauge over last year or two? It seems to have. Swung from one side to the other and quite rapidly Sawyer. In. After the PSG game and the trump is league it was giving him anything he wants signed him up I. think that was also part of this trend that we've seen kind of fans feeling like their Club is come back to them after being away from them for whatever reason because of a runabout manages. I don't think he's ever been the savior and I don't think he's ever been the villain. I think he's bumped around a little bit in the middle and actually from being honest I, would say towards the upper end of that scale. Yes I agree art critic. However, I still don't think he is an absolute elite level coach if you're taking like the very, very top tier football management in terms of what? Should be going after I think social is done. Has Been overrule. Honestly, a good job are great artery I. Don't think he's done a great job by also don't think that he has been given. I don't think he's operating in the optimal conditions to do a great job and I think a lot of people would struggle to do a great job at Monchy Schneider at the moment. The thing that concerns me about the punch thing is that if you look at what he wanted, it spurs in terms of he wanted a little bit more say and control in terms of he was brought in things both Kinda very similar will tetras now Austin where he's working directly with I do he's he's overseeing more than just being head coach on everything gets that. Manchester United not long after he got fired from Buzz I was convinced the posh tight job. However, the the comments that he made about the perfect club in the perfect project a slightly said a million times before when you're stuck his that high, your next move is so crucial. Sorry for sounding like a bit of a flip flop ahead but it really depends on two things I think puch backs his own ability to the level where he's like it doesn't remind going on above me. These guys are good enough I can get in I can coach them. He might do it. However I think so much. Of this stuff to fix a Manchester United that he might look at and be. Like. You know what? That's not really. What I want, and also if you look at the talent there pot from maybe. Three. You don't have play staggered throughout that squad to really moldable. I don't think and I know that we've we've been being alive been being the Pasta Dortmund Tremolo bit. Semion Roenick because as much as my heart wants to hop in my head thinks it probably won't be if you compare and contrast the two scenarios Dortmund and a little bit. Super settled very, very functional club operational level, and probably this is kind of the touched on in the piece is going to go up on the ring has gone up on the ring independent when you listen to this. It's hard to think of a squad in European football right now has four and if you include Makoko who can play when he's ten sixteen in November. Five generational talent not work at the law Yes it's legit. Five generational talents in different positions comes in the same. All under twenty one unreal unreal tournament. Yes. If, I was punch and I was giving the two options right now. I'd be like I'll dormant are there's there's nothing close it's not even close. It's not even. I completely agree with that and I think the his thing. So how's the? Scrutiny listened I listened because it's essential to say that you said. used. My thoughts on it. How to look At United Amazon like know football's not priority here. And Torch would have looked at it and this thing it's not just purchased his campus. His people imagine a torch talking to maybe like united to kind of third party or having look at the club could imagine and his like you know braintrust sitting there like him and his is coaching staff. I mean just looking going I'm not feeling it. You can imagine because. They got the payoff from Spurs right? Because they're the sitting pretty for they didn't have to rush out for work the next you know few months whatever and then looking for opportunity and it's dormant sister podcast podcast. A podcast is storm door that to be on this. This is one of the two. Boys to. The best scenarios for him to really go full punch. Yeah. UNIMPROVED approved teams by like twenty percent. You could see in the early stages of the first twenty minutes or whatever he was in nothing you could see that told that the noise spa was taking on part. Yeah. I think he needs to go somewhere less noisy. Yes. In terms of Chiasso in terms of drama at. Board level, and that's why I think ultimately he may turn down much if they come to him this is the thing at the moment I have no idea where the Edward has even had those kind of conversations and this is the worrying thing about much snide because they're since the England's Bossa in of the way they've been run over the last decade. Yes. Had it all yup. I think arrogance and complacency absolutely has led to jointly to sit in Old Trafford we have two week as would what does and look down and feel no. Ultimate shame is extraordinary on texting. Goodness me. Typing approach. If you if you got a text from at this point, you screen it, I'd love to see him. But I don't think that in this form deserve him. But deserve him on his question to think this is going last long as you think in a few weeks will be seeing the kind of like an Ollie. We trust kind of thing. Again, it will always swing back because I, think we'll come back to that I think will get a couple of good results. Don't beat Brighton three now recently. And People Got Happier Again It will swing back to Ali Rei Trust little bit only because look is a pandemic people want their escapism is Radio Hall to be down on your team for longtime known ready wants to like go every week being down the garden charge so I think it will just kind of rumble along unfortunately I think this. Is a good enough coach. To. Get. This is the danger of him being that is the danger of making a transitional appointment to permanent solution. He's a good enough coach and he's a nice enough guy to keep getting good results here in there to every three weeks every three to four weeks you'll get a result will make people go. Oh Could result because it will be because, yeah. It work on the break and you'll get one nil tune elite new hold onto third go from somewhere. and DOTS unfortunately perfect. The glazes is the perfect firewall. He's the perfect human shield. And the changes as he himself gets tired of it. I. Think He. Not Selfish I. THINK HE LOVES UNITED TOO MUCH TO DO that dream job isn't it from a professional point of view can be harsh about this as well. He's not getting a bigger joke than that. No Way and Art Mrs also, I think a problem, the unnamed coaches. Not Going to get better jobs than the ones they've got at the moment. And that's a big problem that I'm going to open this. God. Twice a week Ryan. I think. The. Social of cancer, but it shows up. Senior monk twice a week. Ryan the might peak professionally by Howard you engage with me twice a week is painful bestow I'm with I don't my level. Punching up. Anyway listen before we move on speaking to punish and. It was it was the punch all but we need to talk about the red card stuff because I can already see all mentions if we don't yeah I don't think there's even really deserves a huge amount debate. I think they re both go on either of them go. Yeah. They both go I voice also weighed and football league get punished retaliation not finish lots of aggression. I. If. I'm not believe that the melodies booked. They're both guy for that. They both go. That's all I think about it. She thought you send by the funny because the Menez action was so aggressive. What's it? GonNa it was under the. Subsidies and his reaction to being hit. Was Worthy of yellow as well. I thought the initial action was so aggressive like. Like a red card offence. I actually thought his story I. thought he was more aggressive than Moscow. Both right because the bar has been set, the bar has been set by the initial question I think no to reds and I'm not trying to be biased. They are generally think the dot spot play. The has no place anywhere. What been obsolete like in the NFL, the risk might duffin. They announced that explain that decisions I would've loved Anthony Taylor. To run a yellow to Lamelo. And venerated. And then turn around to Mossy just brandish yellow. And then get on the MIC, the HIP. The HIP and be like. The Manchester United Benign. flaked him in the face. booking it was in retaliation to the Spurs number eleven, elbowing him in the neck that's a yellow card, and also his reaction is another yellow card and therefore the spurs number has been sent off and just everyone. L. E.. But that would have actually been superfund. The time on Taylor sent off Manchester United play in thirty two matches. It should have sent another one later. I think luke show should have been sent off all my God. that. Is One of the foul Lucas Moorer. Awful. That's that was the worst thing that happened in the game from from from violent conduct Shot his ankles, speed that Lucas Sir, and he knows how fast Moore is. He knows how dangerous is and it was such a hack. Yeah and he looked at him you could see the ball was so far away he. Should have gone for that. Reminded me of like playing it like a first year secondary school and the getting absolutely hammered and someone just goes off to you is the kind of thing that happens during Sunday League so-social is reaction those amazing Shaw. Where an shore runnings wolves camera on the replay and socialist behind them. You seem just absolutely mad about it. The southern shores that his past is behind him. Outside side Israel decided that's an injury was a huge factor in that with shows. It's huge to that's not that's not sort of discount that. But just. Twenty. Five years old. But that's a trajectory does. This, you need the coaching development in the back for the stable of you need a unit where you can grow within like you to collect Robertson at Liverpool and how he's developed within a secure system where you know what's happening, you know shores being shift around from system to system to system, and there's something. So pointed about seeing. One of England's brightest hopes fullback for a long time. Hockey down winger in a tied fashion because he's not quick enough to get the better of him or hasn't got the now step across him. There was something that felt really poignant and I'm like that's not where luke short should be at this point of his career Jewish ago. Abroad. Spain. BOSTON, and he left by. Wouldn't be a bad. I'm being a little bit not that, but I think a move nothing can move abroad probably Quite good I think. Wouldn't forgive him. They wouldn't forgive him for being replaced Jordi Alba. So I think you everyone would be like walking yes. Tomato treatment. Basler at the moment the way that they feel about joy stick stick may leftback. Some argue they have. Wow Shut Slough listen at least I can do more kick-ups than Gino. Desk. Full Guy was really wet wasn't it was really wet and. That's one of the most Lai I swear I've had nightmares about that before signing for a club and just not being able to get under control that any kick-ups oil so and it just drifting away every few seconds. Or doing kick-ups on that fancy because you've got to be some fancy stuff don't you boss? At one quick thing before we take another break because we're going along today again, maybe we're going to break our record for the longest tennis Gary Neville could not figure out how to say drag back. He kept saying foot-drag and Martin Tyler at to correct him saying I think is a drug back and it reminded me of. Like club and someone does a reload and so much just like I don't like spin box spin box. Mine a wheel or as reload. Drug Garrett's does she started lafi Gary Neville just sparing A. One of his beloved pundits, Jamie Carragher what is mentioned? It's very quickly what was really hilarious Jamie Carragher Of Cash predicting how bad the game would get. Oh yes five. Could be six or seven and it kept happening. He comes saying things he showed up carragher what you David Thomas because eventually. He sort of stopped predicting things because he was like, he kind of just new then there's nothing. I haven't even checked the expected goals in that game easily could have been ten, which is kind of wild. We need to take another break. We're super long. been talked about bail. Join US talk about Gallison pat leads versus much facility. Yeah I do I. Accomplish this is come this far down the order and it was probably one of the Best Games football. I am so happy. For Muscle appeals I'm so happy for lead united. By just a thrill you know enough about them. On Saturday night are had such a lovely evening. You know that if you watch Leeds United on a evening. You can have a nice evening like dot is this something you comp sounds cheesy but I had the loveliest time just watching these really gopher against city Anna's like. This is why football's comeback this reasons comeback it's not just for the kind of. The financial benefits but just for like. You could sit on a nice evening and watch a brilliant team garage and really try and win and be unafraid thinking about Burrell's teams that never ever afraid. And I watched this game. I. Went over the local like. To the sort of Crete and restaurant around the corner from he's like three minutes walk my front door. I just sat in a lovely meal and perfected on the game and thought thanks leads like thanks. Sir. Did you eat a crouch down? The L. Elsa Crouch the squat king. Party. Squad goals. Couples. Screw. Her. Can I say leads. Just. Ready. Queue out like as and give you a good workout like playing leads as extreme cardio. The funniest thing said this on twitter. Thing. I'm not laughing at Kevin destroyed by kind of. Your amount of times in the game where he was like look, I'm just going to like. This positive with. Some. Snow. The pull away. It's like. It's like. Doing a pilot on intense workout whilst also. Doing A. Puzzle and solving a Rubik's cube. That's what I play. Late, those go to all at the same time. On, the one hand lert. You've got a Rubik's cube and the other and you still during the pellets on with some absolute jacked jogging appellate on bay like push it push. Like what time? pleased. Like Oh, my God Tony Time. Just Gimme. Warm. I think you saw this slide, you remember Germany the. Boston guy and of. Course. Thousand Two thousand eleven eleven. Yeah. One of my favorite games of football ever. This was the premier league's version of I. Think I really. Just wanted this gains are going for like another hour. Kind of did it felt it felt a tunnel like the intensity of it was just. I mean what was so interesting about leadsers they make everyone any team they will make every team, the ordinary a misses the thing this danger of playing leads early in the season they demystify you early demystified Liverpool right. I wonder if the seventy happens if lease don't go out Liverpool like that I really wonder. You know you've got the legacy and it's interesting. 'cause get benefits is almost like a mark 'cause career. He didn't get the benefits of beating of the pool, but other teams benefit. So Dean Smith looks at in Goes Oh that's actually gonNA work goes and perfects it bang. But be else was the battering Ram. I think we said this before didn't we like football is a copycat sport. People see how you dismantle something and bells has given them the blueprint a now people are party into that gap. This is why thank God they have Tiago because Tiago helps plug that gap and him getting back as a real real priority yet missed him on Monday. Yes. A huge huge priority for them but yeah, the back to be Elsa. This is Brennan merchants as well as the he's gone the. They make very good teams that ordinary yeah. You know less the roof with exposed city now no-one no-one for second I think inuit way. The five to defeat. was really bad. Facility. Been in, his own strange way. This was worse. Because of in the fog to defeat was horrible facility right bought this team went toe to toe. You can say, okay. Well, the counter that's what they do. Let Jamie Vardi getting in behind mocking rotary. Blah Blah. Blah. But leads went at City. With a full like they went with that lyric by the Great Mc Guess I facing Moscow leads spacey. Did they robbed the bank face? This was what was some impressive like they played on the front foot and in a league where the high line may be. Reconsidered now again is a strategy it's going to be more important bill to play pick teams on the front foot. Because they might not give you that room they might say a bit deeper. And needs a lot. Yeah, we can do that too. But they've been they've been so entertaining an every match I've seen them in like. They've gone out Sheffield united who like so resilient and bless Sheffield United. But that goals is going to be real from them unfortunately in a league because this is going to be a five power leak leads shown, they've got goals. Amid Fair. I loved I love this leads team. I love it. Yeah. I have nothing. To find. Wolves next national bright. Which I think is really interesting. Awesome play Dhabi some big pictures coming back right windfall shuffled Arthur as well. Just winning when they're playing dreadful is I'll take the moment I. Am i WanNa shout out West time you know. You always take sorry to be sorry to jump in. Does. He does you. Know. Sorry. Wait a minute. Sorry. Sorry also funds. Awesome playing badly and winning. That's that's what we call championship form. Before we move on from that big, basically I think David Luiz should've gone off by also think am I think I'd think Dhabi Lewis was definite sending-off boasts think Sunday Burger should've been first Taco on paramedic Obama in which all of people were talking about after the game. So who's to blame foreigners for that anyway. Carry on. Sorry West time should probably never. David Moyes back in the dugout because they've been unbelievable since he's had covid. That's a really great result and Somebody, wants to do well and West Ham deserve a bit of joy and he's got to south players you look at. Mahala Antonio he's been on a great run in recent months. And that's the thing you look at players. She improved as a sign of Refund coaching and they mostly do that some. Expand because I was for West Ham's they beat Wales four now obviously and then lost four one to Everton, which is actually a bad result in the context of how could ever actually are. And also it was the cup the cup. So he can spend tens of that two league games, seven goals. None conceded since Moyes has. Soup. Is Amazing before we move on from the premise lake, let's finally shout out Shah. Southampton West Brom. Tino Reagan when for them wolves. Will scraper. One know when I WANNA BIG UP Steve Bruce Newcastle bape. Only three one. I enjoyed this guy muchly but only a struggling man. Can Be. Harsh. In a League of chaos, you need the pouty exploit the chaos, and that's the pattern safaris into actually bondsman parents since January enough or Egypt with injury I'm not sure about Burnley I'm not sure maybe should. Maybe. This is the year that they struggle a conflict of the mouth. I can't figure out there bonus book last but not least Chelsea full. We don't even spoke about Chelsea and that was funny because the first half they getting obser- tarred and feathered pulled three has all my lampard. He's obscene screwed and. Much. For Chelsea one. Without fully hitting the heights a Stafa Hudson. There's nothing like a bid from the European champions to get you a starting place. But how does Hudson feel because I mean this is a bit harsh share your starting record behind Mason Mounds and European championship breaking the Bank to go off to Mason mounts and the off to you. If we're going to be really harsh and be like like hospital, it must be thinking hang on a minute like I come on a change games are cool stuff. Where am I starts like like I'm in demand like he can say and everything on clowns by no. But often often do doubts the transfer market. They know what they didn't. They generally know what they're doing and I don't tend to spend money that big unless they're sure. Yeah. Exactly. Exactly. So yeah like Great Win for Chelsea Really Nice it'll flick for Halfa to get to win the penalty. Loved that. So, very quiet about call a cobras now it's almost like he's he's good. I. Quite Enjoyed Abbott has just been pure captain mode being like not looking Tommy Abraham in the orange is like no. No Georgina penalty-taking I way I. Think with A. Love that on the guy when a shot in the most has been show yeah. He's brilliant. Absolutely brilliant. An thought his delivery. His deliveries are going to be A. Real weapon for Chelsea this season stray on corners and free-kicks. And I thought he was super impressive goal as well and with that. We can wrap the primarily my goodness epic, and we we don't have a time to go elsewhere. Let's be fast will be fast. Then let's go to the Bundesliga super-quick in just touch on a couple of key games after a dreadful. Twenty minutes. dominated. Up crews into a four winning at Fribourg and were genuinely brilliant. This was I don't talk too much about domain because there will be a lot of being the ring apiece. However, G. Arenas best gaming shut amazing and been glimpses there before I don't think he's really disappointed ole since he's played for Dortmund there was no Jadon shown the weekend and what's Don't Clayton's together after about twenty twenty, five minutes Brandon just run the Shaw Lawsuit. Iran. The shore. But not just defensively he I think I think he made more tackles than anyone on the pitch and him in Holand yet we mentioned that on the Shaima, there are signs there and this is kind of the thing about the pieces that there's something. Genuinely. Genuinely. Exciting to a level I caught remember really saying from a number of clubs in Europe before the chemistry ohlund has with other players with Sancho with Raina. Bellingham. was already good again, both whole and goals are kind of becoming a bad trademark cool and gold. Now I the season when they broke for the final winning glovebox, Sancho carried the ball the hallway just well way pass into the channel Olympics that run behind the defender left of the post and slot say away both goals were like that. Yeah. They were both very similar moves, but the assist came from. Raina emery Chango ahead for the second, which was also from a Rainer Corner which meant that rain was the first seventeen year old. School at. Registered three assists in the Bundesliga. Hold them was on a hat trick. He had one that was very similar to the one that he put away against psg actually they went just wide and then right at the end stoppage time he was clean through on goal on a hat trick. For Fix. Love Our love it, which I just still something quite symbolic there. And this makes me feel like this is kind of thing in case like I really hope what I'm really heartless boys talking. Yeah. Because as we saw with buying against Hata Buyin, maybe not looking quite as invincible as we thought they were yeah. They won the game but to concede three goals at home against Hata begging to be a much. Demand. Goes. Conceded last week against and Heim. Maybe this isn't as cut and dried. As we thought, it is as blood in the water on one level for people chasing buying a bit of frustration. They didn't drop points against Hata. You look at bond performance and you still think you're going to a points. You'RE GONNA lose games you're going to draw games it's just GONNA happen it will because teams are just too smart like you know hurt of level talk Back to dormant as well the combinations that developing all over the field, the understanding between even to Bellingham another place. Incredible. But the rain a whole and thing it feels I got eleven Sqi 'cause I with how things go sickened full isn't it Howard player that kind of is? A. Kind of ten. In some ways. So it can old creating goals with old-fashioned ten position and I waited football's revolt again that we've got like. Rain of feeding like an old fashioned ten at times in terms of the. The relationship with the striker dot for me. A number ten isn't so much. It's positional, but it's also the relationship you have with your nine. And rain a HASTA and it's incredible that we're more excited at this point in time not not. Overall more excited in this particular moment about the combination between Raina and Holon Dan, the combination censure, and Holand just right now just this week. Yeah. I think Costa maybe obviously because Sancho play the last two games nothing and it was great embarked and I think sorts because it's been so much noise about San show and allow people expected to move soon. Yeah I. Mean Even though I don't think please. Please please they portrayed on look I mean these costs he's got contracts twenty, twenty three they do not need to sell them for another two years ready I'm. Really glad when the DOB against Cologne three, one in Cologne and Leipzig shock of phone shocker all show I think shocker on icon I really can't see where improvements coming from shocker, but we will touch on the Bundesliga Remote Davis. No doubt through the season when the when the primarily stops playing up. Quickly Spain Barcelona in severe, injury. Will. Speak Point for that round Madrid to nail. But opening weekend for the. Women's Premera? which saw the first game for Real Madrid against Barcelona in. Yeah. It's not read the classics. Classic My God another. For those. Who are unaware that Roma Jarre purchase tacon before season but they played last season as Tacon. Rain. Madrid. They lost four nil on the opening weekend to Boston, learn a really athle- boss learners kind of the women's classic if open I Oslo Spurs in the Cup this actually. In terms of was full, but actually the school line is slightly harsh on rail in the sense that. You know they broke through quite late. Fifty minutes together first goal and then after that, it was kind of plane citing but. They gave a count themselves I thought. Yeah I agree considering they are way behind the development of boss Learner enough. Let's see. It's GonNa, time this isn't GonNa be you know people coming from the men's their operating on different trajectories in the morning Sam Yup Yup. quickly to the women soup munchies three nil tobin heath desist for less your rustler's. So the new signings are starting to click already Manchester United against which is not not a bad when the atoll noto. Manchester City beat spurs four one tooth clary Kelly some years you start to really really quick. She was absolutely unbelievable against Arsenal. Midway City looks scary. Clearly cut it with a great penalty technique as well. Yeah. Yeah I thought. Wow. That's if you check that out as a really great penalty, she took Roosevelt came on again for for the last half hour that easier in slowly but she's Starting to pay Manchester City called help everyone else. Oslo beat Bristol, city three, one massive improvement from low season for Bristol city go absolutely hammered. That was the was me demoss six goals and ET forces recess. MEET HIM AUSE goal. was unbelievable someone tweeted on the weekend I think it might be amy he said. Meet Amar is the most complete but in the women's game hard to disagree, sometimes, we'll equally comfortable being a ten as a nine or. Equally comfortable. Her finish. If you haven't seen I retweeted a gun checkout me and easy so easy to. Chelsea beat Birmingham one no front Kobe scored really early on, and then they can't just around the game out but I gave him a row game and it's making things quite interesting in the women's super because we said before is while the Evanston one again, evidence have not conceded a single goal in the Super League season scored eleven that conceded none. The only sides that yet to concede a goal, the only other side apart from Oslo maximum points. So awesome with a goal difference of plus fifteen at Chelsea Third Mancha, snide fourth. Fifth on goal difference to such good league, it's so good I would thirty recommend watching the women's Super League for people who haven't checked yet. A lot of games unless spill showed on your national broke hostile April customer in your country will on the FAA apply online free to access. Why would you her sister? CASSIE had a starring role in the women's soccer league. Yeah. Yes they beat. The Houston Dash beat North Carolina courage full one, which is funny because for those following the episode. Challenge. Cup like the dash one but they were kind of seen as the outsider and the courage without front runner and it's weird because what since game thinking? Actually maybe. Maybe the all the best team in the league the absolutely away and. I was when I saw customer. So hadn't been seen a play before I hadn't seen her a games regularly.

We've just been on during the lowest didn't even talk actually we didn't even talk about the Napoli thing which is weird. It is weird if they decided whether they're going to get the three points while not yet the delay tables haven't been changed. So I'm not sure other may have changed decided yet. Maybe. We'll save that for Thursday honk aretha low. I happened in a League game. I believe. Top Level League game since new season starts. So maybe that's GonNa that's a sign of things to come.

MEKA's up again, he had one or two very would say against Policy. GETS ON. And I mean I You on the radio this morning from Baltimore.

European Giants Need Wins

"Hello welcome into the show. I majored Haley in the company of Steve Nicol and check. Hey Sloppy in the studio is such a massive weekend gentlemen. We have an extensive guest list as well Siglo Gabon cody in Dhaka to read my paper to get a more get older. Ah We're coming out of an international break going into a Champions League week looks everyone wants to play on Sunday. Look at all the teams in action in Europe on Saturday anti mentioned interest you know squeezed in there as well somehow but but Paul Spurs Man City by Munich the three biggies in Spain all the big ones in Italy. NPS Danpilla she all in action on Saturday with a Champions League looming around the corner was in spades. Shall we a refresher of where we stand Athletico Madrid jet still top of the Table Bilbao playing just a point behind them. Its eighth against ten though that will start with if you could believe leave that the new Camp Barcelona and Valencia. Let's welcome sit low into the show just a quiet week for these two teams bus. Ah Valencia nothing to see here. It's amazing. I mean January as you said the experience national week everything has been quite and then and then suddenly in the middle of the week everything that we were kind of waiting for happened had a big interview we've Leo Messi in which he said a lot actually about ball slimness summer about that pursuit of Neymar about various issues as well and then of course we had the news from Valencia which didn't come as a surprise as the timing may be was a slight surprise and they've now sacked their manager Marcellino that really day come out of the blue didn't they say in terms of the Lionel Messi stories you touched upon it was sport the the paper in Barcelona that ran where they the follow up today global impact was the headline. We had plenty to say on the show yesterday about it wanted to know what's your biggest takeaways from the story and he's a big deal to sit. Everyone seemed to think it was here in the studio. Yeah absolutely it's a big tale a big deal partly because of the context of this and the fact that message gives an interview at all is news because messy is relevant. We're almost no interviews in fact in read it to be free but almost none although it is true that since he's being captain he's taken a much more proactive media role and so I think what that that means is that you have to look at things that messy says and say what it's true that all of those come in response to questions while it's true that some of those questions are leading messy S. He doesn't talk and doesn't say things in lessee has things to say unless he wants to make a point while I think there are one or two of the things that you said about the instability stability in the in the sporting director role about the possibility of Collins Pool yell taking that role on about the welcoming of grease a name on one or two of those also you might. I think well actually reading. The context of the question is not quite as strong as it looked but read in the context messy doesn't normally answer any questions at all. I think this is very significant. Indeed uh-huh sit back to the game at the new cap no Lionel Messi still for Barcelona at identical record with Valencia one one one. They didn't lose them. Did they three times last oh I see what what are you expecting this time well. It's difficult to know what to expect. Because of course everything has been totally overtaken by by the institutional issues during the week by the sacking talking of Mussina and remember we were talking. I think it was last week about the champions. The groups and we were saying that on the face of it in in in Chelsea's okay you've got Valencia team. Who who you stabilize last who won the Cutler Jay go back inside Champions League playing really well and we said yes but there is a storm bring underneath the below the surface this is going to blow up at some sites where we didn't think was that it would blow up the very next week and so while in theory at least Valencia? I've had a very clear very stable identity in footballing terms at least for the last eighteen months. It's maybe even two years now. We just don't know how they're going to respond to this now. The new manager album fellas has said law not going to change loads of things a huge amount of respect for the work of the previous manager did in upwards there was nothing wrong with it and there was no footballing reason to sack these guy. This was biased about on the relationship on the power battle on the breakdown. Take down of the flow of communication between between the club an coach and so in theory at least they carry on doing the same thing but the players are furious. Yes and it can't be exactly the same of different man. So what are we going to get from blindster. We just are no meanwhile say the early game in the early start Bernabeu Tobago isn't it Real Madrid and La Venta little bit different Madrid Luca moderate Gareth Bale is suspended. Oh Eden Hazard is in line for his first a start. This is kind of the Real Madrid were expecting. Isn't it. Yeah I mean look the start for has always really important and we've we've talked a little bit about this. I think when when I came in and of course he came in and the announcement would be changes and it was a lot of talk of Shifting Plaza Alpo bringing in now. We've we've discussed before that some of the people will I won't it. They couldn't get some of the people tried to get rid of. They couldn't get rid of but really and truly in terms of changing the shape of same and I think as well changing emotionally the feel of the team the signing that really mattered was at hazard now Madrid did signing so early the by the end of the window it kind of felt like they'd been active. Actually they'd done the things you're supposed to do which is get you signings of course they want it offers and has will change things because I think has will give them that. Creativity the speed the willingness to run at people and as I say just that sense that this is different and because bear in mind that the first game of the burn about this year every single one of the outfield players have been there four years ago and so this at least is something the freshman things up or at least that's the theory yeah meanwhile Athleti interesting test for them against Saucy Diego Simeone Tony came out and said listen. We're not lacking anything this year we can compete on all fronts and that's a little bit different from what we've heard in previous years from semi always trying to downplay the chances absolutely I mean you you look back at the League the League that they won and he's been all the way through that season saying we can't win the league not we shouldn't not win favorites. We can't win the league. I don't think he was saying the Nazi he was starting to think yeah we can and the admitted postseason Athletic Bilbao when they won they feel actually this is possible. I think the mindset this year is is different and I wonder if actually impact what Simione is trying to do. This shift in message is Satan people okay. There's no excuse there's no hiding place now. Obviously obviously we're not obliged to in the league but we have to go these believe and we can and to give you an example of a colleague of mine a few years ago interviewed and Athletico Madrid player and after the interview that was there was discussion and she said to him. What do you think is wrong with this because it was during a period of which outlets country where we're not doing particularly well and this colleague said to him well? I actually think pot your problem is is it known obliges you to do anything. No one says to yeah you should be winning the league. You should be going out there and winning. No it's okay you'll the downtrodden team your the underdogs just just work hard and everyone satisfied with that and the player she said I think you're right. Nothing ever happens when we play badly and in a way from does but in terms of the the entourage the fans and the media and so on and then the white maybe what he's trying to say you know what I want the pressure on the place I want them to go on the pitch and know that there is an excuse. There isn't a reason to not win that that said I agree with you from the very start. I think this is a very difficult game for them. Yeah it is which one of these three Games gents most looking forward you only watch. One of them sounds Valencia yeah this. This has to be a tunnel point. I mean the what five points behind this lady already if they don't win this game this would be huge. You just violated the League's consume and the play against a team that should be counted for the you just lost your manager usually when that happens everybody launcher you. You don't want to be playing Barcelona when you know so Boscell and a half they win this comfortably. I'm looking forward to Real Madrid Levante. I listen to the story lines there on this game that I don't think anybody expected or anticipated. Eden Zodda enjoyed painting in his first game. Okay you can't cater for that but bill being as good as he has been given the on the speculation around him and rather ridiculously sedan under under some Prussian question mouse continued to hang around him from from both sides of that same coin. I'm ongoing into a week Champions League against against Po. I think it's simply huge well. You won't be able to watch Gareth fail this weekend candy suspended against Nevada you can fill in the gaps though by reading six column on ESPN FC don't calm all about pales mental stage. It's interesting reach. Check it out just a little refresher course for you as to where we stand Dan heading back into primarily week five Manchester United trailing listing city. It's eight against third at all traffic as we welcome in into the show to give us his thoughts on the looming weekend ahead. I tell you what he and there's a lengthy line outside the old trafford treatment robe at at the moment the list of expanding for Majesty no Paul Paul but no Anthony Marshall Jesse Lean God also at Loach Luke Shaw not available available amongst others against the city so when we look at potential impossible mentio- ninety starting eleven greenwood sma culminate matic young the back. It doesn't exactly make any opponents run for the hills doesn't particularly really underwhelming don't you think are they in trouble. They're in a little bit of trouble all day. They've got this injury list at the moment they haven't won. Since the opening day of the season and then there was a time of course when teams would go to Old Trafford and they were lucky to get a corner. They'd have a party if they got so much as a point there but not anymore they've already lost to Crystal Palace. CCC This season and I think you'd have to fancy Leicester City who are a good team. They haven't lost so far. They've won their last two Jamie Verdes on fire Lia- so this is another tough one for Manchester United the way things stand and I don't think they got it right in the summer again. They needed to do more in the transfer market in particular I think they had to beef up the midfield and I think there was a player really who was around and they could have got. I think Bruno Fernandez the excellent Portuguese international player who schools goals adds dynamism to the midfield but that deal wasn't done. I know he was on the shopping list. He was on a few people shopping list. They didn't get him and they don't really really have someone who can pick the locks and they don't really have an out and out goalscorer. They've got one big success story there at the moment. That's Dan James Who's arrived with a flurry of goals was in great speed stevie again two points out of that last night and this is the lineup Scott this whenever you should go to united you talk about dynamic comic they were coming from every which way way through the middle over the top they'd run you over one to death. They'd Pasha he dead heated the absolute skid Steph Old Trafford and you look at that Sade. I mean going forward. Really you rush off the talk. Is he going to have to do on his own. James's Rookie Greenwood's rookie mitre can get around the field and you've got the dynamic jewel naught and the middle of the park of March and mic told me I was going to break down the oddsmakers however shank Shenk do not share our pessimism about United they still very much odds-on to win thirty seven to two unless the city would initially free to one on the Georgia they they have it right the automakers. I don't think so I think this is more reflective of much united fans. Being having a sit in a multi conference are on their team which only funds could explain on. Let's look at it this lester who started this he's slowly responded have won their last two in the league and most impressively evolved are in my mytalk ten of which you know well that takes takes some a lot of engineering so that's all you need to know about less city but AH to teach point. Let's give this off to the given where the given what they did a few seasons ago and maybe thinking maybe not do the same it can can emulate that go into Old Trafford see that as a possible line up you are not afraid of anything that united have to have to offer need. He did no such worries for the leaders Manchester City and Liverpool fuel with us little earlier in the week you might have seen Craig and Steve The you know need the fashion that they can. This is about the title ought to be affected by LaPorte injury for Manchester City Shit. He hasn't done too much damage just yet so the ten to twenty nine on a little more than two into one pet quandialla in saying today that LaPorte could be out for up to five to six months considerably longer than perhaps I thought to each it's to have an impact. Doesn't it yeah I think they look a man light now. In central defence I mean if they've known what was going to happen to the poor I think they've gone on somebody else in the summer but he's out now until January February companies go on of course to do the plan amounted just job at and electric is still with having him around so stones' fit it I understand for tomorrow's game at Norwich so it'll be probably him and author Mendy in central defence and they bet the pray the neither of those to get injured because what happens if they do they might have to move car walker into central defence. I might even have to play in Schenker in Central Defensive Move Fan and dino back there. That's probably more likely but there's not much room for error. That's the problem for Manchester City. They'll be okay at Norwich tomorrow but there's not many rooms for slip-ups because last season Liverpool only he lost one game so he does. I think thicken the plot a bit said he deserved to be favored as they are given given the Lepore Injury Situation Shire go the other way I in preseason. I thought city will favorites to win a right now but given the polls injury I make a Liverpool I adjust feeling as good as city on especially going forward and maybe you don't have to rely on your defenders all that much when you have the ability to school five and six city t- seemed to do every time they step on the that that catches up to you that unseated had the back I think takes a tool and everybody else on the field. The only thing for me that that maybe dense Liverpool chances in that regard is that this Alisyn injury is more serious than it seems but given what we're hearing from you can club over the last day go to and that he should be back in another month. I I'm changing allegiances here or Liverpool. Get the Premier League we can going against Newcastle the game no oh youtube very fond of for historical reasons but talking of Livable and History Steve Thirty years ago today mcmahan Rush Gillespie Big Xlii allardyce bonds heison and then nickel again. Oh Meiring nil what remains the largest ever talk by wing remains the only game where one club had eight different goal stores. You know the thing as it should have been more it could have been a fourteen or fifteen keeping our go beat nineteen. He meets the foreign credit bulbs golf the lion the bodies in the way I mean we don't we get the street eight different goalscorers and the only person who is very old stevie nickel and he got the first and the lot to box at the last. I I remember it well he and I don't I don't know if you do September nine hundred eighty nine nine nothing yeah just about. I mean those golden days when Liverpool seem to win the title every year. I mean who thought that all those years aren't they still won the title again I mean I think you said that to anybody back then they'd have taken you away many white coats to come along for US aways go. Maybe this is the year again for the was the star of the lashed season. They want it very suppling by the way with no keep it. I remember one now. The goalkeeping coach Bud Dot Com in Chicago style Internet. Wherever this is this is this is how the League we shapes up Livable Newcastle getting you get to old started men's city nor she to the lady game on Saturday and then hostile the only one of the big boys in action on Sunday? Johnny got a twig offset when he was three and from that day on when he was hooked all he wanted to do was Gulf Gulf Gulf he'd be on links before school after schools all he ever wanted was to go pro and then one day when he was holding his grandson and thinking about his twelve handicap. Johnny realized it just might not happen for him but you know what did happen for him. He switched to Geigo saved a bunch of money on car insurance so that was good and so was hanging out with his grandson. Now the Bundesliga standings heading against the weekend rb Leipzig talked with the pile by Munich in third place Wolfsburg where an action on that Friday so jumped above in that department but it is I guess third I'll be taken by Munich their first meeting of the season the late game on Saturday in Germany Gab Marconi with this guy but if you will do me a favor I'd like to recalibrate the Gab to measure your excitement levels so on that basis just how fired up for this one look I mean I I'm I'm very excited for this because while Leipzig as a club and as an entity aren't particularly likable for for many reasons the football they play is pretty remarkable. They're tremendous storylines. It seems like Julia Inaugu one having been passed over by Byron Munich depending what version you believe us either passed over but by Munich or he didn't want to go to Munich and you know he's he's. He's got like taking over really really nicely getting the best out of out of Christopher Kuku. Obviously a mill force Berg is is I think back at the level he was a few years ago but pre injury and Rita row and they'd love nothing more than to smack Biron around and push it out to to a five point gap and a lot of people were saying well. Maybe this is bullshit Dortmund's year maybe in the run-up to to the season kind of overlooking Leipzig a little bit but what we've seen so far they have the tools in place to create real problems for buying that said Biron still evolving. We Shock Chino really contribute last time around. I still have questions about where he's GonNa fit how that Could Union Miller dichotomy is going to work itself out. Are we going to both of them. On the pitch at some point and obviously Kovic screws are turning on him the way they have done really for the last six months is by the w one last year so tons of storylines tons at stake. I think it's possibly the game of the weekend interesting like looking for a little revenge as well from from that German Cup final defeat the make as though have buying as distinct favorites to win they all zone go to Leipzig and get the victory tree this is what this weekend looks like a full slate across ESPN plus and that game on ESPN news it all starts thoughts but the early game. It's GonNa Rival this one Fiorentina and you venture some great encounters over the is that gap all. It's not that well perhaps in the vintage camp. Let's talk about the mood there because emory Chan lift out of the champions. These quoted played no men's either. He's not even going to revoke golf tomorrow. So how would you assess the mood jared. Look I think the worst so some some alarm bells a little a bit when you're three hundred up at home and your opponent gets back into it do the business with Sean and manage obviously a lot of it is is down to the fact that they weren't included in the in the Champions League squad that was just poor planning poor execution from you vendors who found themselves with too many. I don't think it's necessarily going to be an issue. Who is this season whereas on it's not like these guys can't play magic has been linked with moves elsewhere? I don't think anything's GONNA happen until the New Year anyway but you know these guys they'll still play. They'll play in Syria and and as long as a team is willing the big question mark is Ken Modern Society Kenny execute his rotation the way he wants it the way he needs to to keep everybody happy because of course as as Chelsea Napoli fans know all too well. This is not a guy I who rotates very much at all ever Well Different Soda Question Facing Napoli Ahead of the game. Is that SAM will they be able to get changed this was the footage was Shoji yesterday from the dressing room with a lot of work still to be done remember they had played the Games on the road to allow the dressing room to give all of a sudden look at this twenty four hours later magic finished gleaming in the same place that remarkable overnight transformation tell you those woodman in Naples something I'll tell you what God is is everything sweetness and light now in Naples I mean surely as far as the dressing room is concerned Yeah the stadium to what they were doing is they were refurbishing parts of the stadium which stadium of course owned by the city and it's something that they wanted to do for a while it'll be it is usually what happens in this game in seeing I think is is unlikely to start as well so I'm going to have to come up with with solutions there. ah the question is what happened Interin. Is that cost how fuller glass-half-empty for me it's glass half full. It showed that once they start playing that they can compete the question is his French. Is You know you gotTa make sure that you start playing from the first minute but on paper is going to be the toughest fixture that Napoli face all season long and say meanwhile gap so far so good inter two wins out of two they play Oud NASC- at Rome lukasz makers two goals in two games and racially abused having a little Dig Majesty ninety as well. What have you made the stunt Mkaku? I mean it's pretty remarkable arguable because he was obviously built up. I thought almost excessively so as if he was like some combination of Michael of Boston Ian Rush and wail rolled into one but his attitude fantastic the way he's he's really formed the bond with his supporters with his teammates. He said all the right things. He's pretty bright guy obviously the horrendous episode that he went through in Naples. You know he took it. He he took it in stride and he took it while speaking out the next day about the importance of it and then not necessarily dwelling on it so popularity is only gone up the danger is that with it comes maybe unrealistic expectations but let's not forget leaving aside the eighteen months he had a united. This is a guy who has always scored a ton of goals in his show and fell as written an excellent article on Rome Lukashenko and his mission to prove Manchester United Wrong can read that much on our website. SPNFZ DOT com the race truly on for the MLS ploughs moves teams only have four or five games left this weekend full slate starting at Yankee Anki Stadium at twelve thirty eastern on ESPN plant Saturday the big game on ESPN Portland against DC United West and east that's three thirty eastern install time on Sunday all of this of course off the backup really disappointing international break for the US men's national team under Gregg Berhalter. They lost three nil at home to Mexico and then scrambled a late equalizer against Uruguay to draw one one that s pretty in in on this befalling this team for a while. It's hard to remember a time where the national team fan base is being down in the dumps as it is right now. What can you say about what you've seen the US recently well down in the dumps is right? I think there's a kind of apathy is sad to watch really and I think a lot of the fans of fallen out of love with the team and don't believe in them anymore since they failed to qualify for the World Cup but big picture this is still really the era after they've lost awesome key players Landon Donovan Clint Dempsey Michael Bradley and jazzy outdoor not involved as much anymore they could still figure of course Tim Howard the goalkeeper goalkeeper so there's a new coach trying to graft in a new style. I don't think that's the pennies really dropped with that as yet but you know one against Uruguay is not the end of the world. This is the team ranked fifth in the world. Okay they might not have been at full strength but in terms of maybe just building a little more row for the team name. I don't think that's a bad result but what I think I'd like to see now from Greg. BIHOTA is for the experimentation to stop really let's build this team now around Christian Politic Tyler Adams couple of others as well Weston mckennie those kind of players and get the team settled old move forward towards the era where they have to qualify for another World Cup that's when it really starts to matter you mentioned if there is something to cling onto a us his fans at the moment it is Christian Pulisic the great white hope but the man they hope to build their future around. What have you made of his first month? at Stanford Bridge is a Chelsea player was a difficult time for the club isn't it because I keep on leaking goes over. That isn't ballistics vote. I think the good news the Eh really is that Sean in that supercup game against Liverpool. He really looked electric in that game. I think he opened a few peoples is among the Chelsea fans who might have been doubting well who is he was again ah do he did well in that game and I think he's been bright enough. He didn't start the first permanently game since then he started every every game. He hasn't scored yet the Chelsea but I think he he's done okay so far more than okay yeah. Absolutely one sister doesn't tell the whole story. I'm sure aw guys at Christian political being the Chelsea team as they travel to Mulinuu for what will be an old could encounter against a team that hasn't won yet but they haven't lost yet either Wolves Chelsea Twenty nine hundred twenty to win wolves nineteen to ten correct. They've lost once but they joined three times a possible double check and see eleven looking like this. we think Christianson rude to get we think might be back. Alonzo made late at the back is this the solar game name can go in tomorrow new and win the this is giving what we show from wolves season Guatemala new and winning especially when you haven't audience used as Chelsea do right no was no easy task but that we've seen so far this season is not that we sean fan in love with lassie's. I I think stuttering. I think they've come good but knows as good a time to to get wolves think Chelsea needed result as much as anybody and I I think the Golden State do you concur. I think this is GonNa draw written all over. I find lettuce. I I find it hard to go what I'm going to get from Chelsea from week to week go through periods in games where they look great and then disappear so I'm not sure what you're going to get sued desperate to gail when and the fight the whole this is a huge game for them Chelsea come its own draw over. Does it end draw. Oh really hard to predict I think I might be high. Scoring jewelry could be a two two or three three. I think I think Chelsea has been very entertaining because the look as if they're going to be goals at either end every time they play wolves it is a weekend where they haven't had to go and plow Thursday night in Europe so maybe they'll be a bit fresher. Them might happen great stuff Mr thanks as always for your contribution will not suit enjoy your premier league weekend we'll be reviewing the game the ends working king on Manchester City North City amongst all the Saturday games on ESPN NFC edible every day.

Have you during the weekend watching so she she's asking how we enjoy our weekend yes but the judge said until courage him but he goes on to say watching soccer all the time question. What do you watch all games being a pundit yeah yeah I mean I mean obviously you to be to be honest? You try and watch as much as you possibly can. There's there's also a balanced obviously the office I speak for myself and it kind of depends on on on how many games you need to get in and what time they fall but I would rather see the game in this stadium and then on the TV so it says weekends when you go to two more in the ground makes it harder towards more more more hiring but yeah ain't charm watches as much as you possibly can but we'll see it's like in my case. You'll you'll looking a Spanish vanish I vision and every week you'll taking a kind of a gamble or every week. You'll taking a bet on which game is going to be the one. That's exciting which gave us one. That's going to produce a story which obviously some weekends it's easy easy and it's so funny enough for me. PLASCO weekend is always a little bit easier than some of the ones why well because you know. The story is coming out with Michio the Madrid Barcelona game regardless of what happens in the allegations even if the other games absolutely amazing just quickly say what's your record for games attended in one weekend in Spain in a single weekend probably six Spanish weekend rods bear on this past weekend runs Friday fruits and Monday right so you challenge them in a still go with it so gab. How'd you manage a we came with being at games and watching as many as you can walk Woah because my is basically across Europe part surely across the Big Five Leagues I can't get to that many games aims? I'll watch arsenal or Chelsea whichever one is at home and otherwise I'll be stuck there in front of my televisions trying trying to keep an eye on everything else and again as I said the schedule is more doable in Spain where they decided hey. Let's never have games on at the same time I mean over the weekend. You can go and watch the Games here in England. It's it's tougher because they insist on having usually six of them three o'clock on a Saturday. I'm not saying it's a bad thing but tradition matters but but yeah it's all different challenges but do you do WanNa Watch. It's much as you can. I think it is important to to go to the ground at least once a week once a weekend nudie games I got to when my kids are plan. I think I've got to six and a weekend. That's also points outs. Davos are points out the thing which is when you've got two games going on at the same Simon you're trying to watch more than one screen at home and it's even more than two occasionally Miami three games going on. You've got one Saturday that you've got the ipad somewhere or else in China. which will these games and I found out I think God is much better this than me because we've we've talked about this before I'll fair? I've found that when you try it free games at once what what happens is you end up actually not promising any of them and it's really frustrating because you're watching the screen when the goal goes in and the other one and so I've tried Sosa combinations where are the screen with the vision walks by the volume from the other game. then of course is completely Wakai. It is a far on cry from the big match in in in the mid nineteen eighties with warden Gabe Stevie I know I know you know what I'm talking about at flashy Shaka says is it better for a key to get good as you die for bowl. Nosy count stop all to just stand them why I back when I didn't think I was going to get there I keep a coach Terry. Ganal brilliant goalkeeper okay coach at Newcastle and has phrase was always get on the freemen has being that if there's going in at least back on the weekend and obviously I think you've made seve's but you just don't think again. You don't think you'd get in there and somehow you know it hits. You might take a deflection of somebody's sitting on you just happen to be right there. You GotTa Die Dies thinking you're going to be on the people you're going to be about sage college. Football is back says Mr Gutman via twitter tough hopeless back Var disgracing always watched the championship but nothing else clearly anti-vat what and then he goes on to say what are the most underrated films that you guys love. I'm not sure about that quite gone. That question is going going back. I'll say for both football is back but I'm not watching bill watch because I want to watch them under eight and Phil Sir. Can you help this guy out. I'm I'm a little bit lots of Segue from films. Lets you think might be the exciting exciting adventures evolve would be under. I'm I'm quite enjoying the vowel because we've talked about lots of times before Oh wow this happened is fine last year so honestly you're hearing exactly the same arguments again people disliking exactly the same things that we just lost you anyway and sums of an underrated film. It's difficult because how do you under you. People have gone not like when you like it regenerate a film that not many people have heard of them may be really really liked butterfly's the flies tongue language and Mariposa in Spanish is about very small lithium town at the outbreak of the Spanish civil war. That sounds like a blockbuster this that sounds really good yeah okay well what was chomping at the bit with all said you would love as cold reassume Assu yes that that is a classic walk late eighties early Nineties Yeah Leesville. It'd be never even releases. USA and your show is about to Babysit for a guy the potter that is absolutely fine gap. I know you you've got something I saw in the if they'll I'll give you two of my favorite films who have plenty of famous people in them but I think get better with age inch metropolitan whit stillman's I ever films and featuring the wonderful rick fans longer who's one of the greatest ever and the other one John recon wonderful rick. I I watch it. You'd see Ya is true. Romance Star on Hollywood Boulevard underrated fill on the right and nobody's traumatic has done a real person Eric during the film true Romance Skopje Second. That's a that's a really underrated for a lot of people would put other Tarantino films ahead of them but what's remarkable. True Romance is just the freedom him he afforded four or five six tremendous actors from Gary Oldman to Christopher Walken to go and just kind of do whatever they wanted with their characters and plus the scene with the was sort of the Christopher Walken and the watch is homeless is good at the Dennis Hopper one yeah yeah. Have you ever seen reassume both yes they have what did you think was it underage did you. Did you love this TV because always funny. I read assumed Bob to actually popped up in a film class.

Offside Upper West side of Manhattan, Andrew gulling, and j J Advani what's up IVA tales from the subway to begin the show. I always enjoy those. So my friend Vanessa's on the subway this morning. She's wearing her Liverpool hat. She's big Liverpool fan and a man decides to engage in. Oh know, would you call it banter the bands and I love Monday morning arguments with random strangers, by the way, New York rules. There's no chatting don't talk to anyone ever. Not on the subway in the morning. A not to a lady who's got her headphones in unless she's on fire, and doesn't know then you tether, otherwise, leave her alone, especially when you don't, but he engages anyway and his joke is, oh, I'm surprised you're wearing along the lines of this. I'm surprised you're wearing that hat seen a city replaced you at the top of the permanent league this. This guy is a Chelsea fan. He lets it be known. And she turns around you lost six nil our south. I'm surprised you're willing to show your face in public, right? By the way city have game at hand. I would have liked gone into the explanation of all of that. And Gino how he followed up though as if to compound the error. Oh, I just thought I didn't know you knew what the hot was. I just thought your boyfriend gave it to you to God. Oh, jeez. Oh my God. Oh, he compounded with just like the most condescending man's planning. Oh, yeah. She's he just picked on the wrong person. I mean, she goes to what did she say? She hopes she like let them how. Yes, she she. She put them in. She's well capable of handling herself. She put him in his place. But oh what a way to start the week. Jeez. Poor Vanessa and poor. Chelsea we're going to talk about well, really, the Manchester City Chelsea matches pretty much why we're here today. Because obviously we are going to have another podcast on Wednesday because the round of sixteen of the Champions League begins Tuesday and Wednesday. So we'll have a podcast then. But we just felt like what was it? You said that it was. So the result was so seismic was that the worst ice Nick was a bit strong. But it was I understand that it wasn't though. Yeah. And I feel like, you know, we've been talking about we did that wonderful, by the way are sorry. Make mash up with Justin Bieber came back on social media yesterday. Yeah. And I felt like we dealt with Sarah earlier, and this you can't talk about the way Chelsea are the season on ignore this whit to Wednesday. It's just not gonna work. We could almost replay that the sorry Bieber. Maybe a little later on on the podcast, but we're going to do in the club coming up in a few minutes with Jonathan Smith of ESPN NFC who is a regular contributor to. The blue moon podcast. Yeah. For Manchester City. So we're going to get their side of it. But I think the Chelsea side is really the one that you have to start with because I mean, you could almost say that it's kind of been building to this. I mean, really this is kind of already happened with the born with match. I'd say a four nil lost born math. Yes. Comparable to a six nil to city, but this was drivetime. But right. This was going on SNL and getting a case of diarrhea. Right. Like it. It's just hard and not just like the the final result. But JT it was four nil. What eighteen minutes? Oh, I like I tweeted out a list of things to do. No. It's tune of the city. It was four nil before a half hour twenty four. That's right. Come on like honestly could've been five of Sergio. Guero doesn't have the miss of the season of floppy foot. And then he goes on equals Alan Shearer's hatrick record and eleven hattricks in the Premier League. Yeah. It was I honestly it was weird. I I did a thing that I'm trying to get out of my life. Where I I stop going to Twitter to see what people are saying in the midst of a huge club crisis for somebody. But I I had to. So I really watched the second half with I made breakfast. Actually, I made breakfast kept one eye on it on kind of looked at Twitter to as people went into full meltdown. Yeah. Do you have those tweets in front of you is that what you're building up towards here now? Oh. Well, no, I should probably premise all everything by saying. I'm not some kind of some kind of sage that went into this game with a jaded view. I was excited. I thought this was like two houses coming together to massive entities in the primarily clashing despite Chelsea's poor form in recent weeks. So the thing tune in my head going into the game was this. Right. So this is this is a big big match. But after twenty four minutes, the June had changed to this. Yeah. Because. I don't have to talk to to. To John did to Jonathan about this. How much of this was like excellent man city. Put also just dreadful poor Chelsea painting. I really think it was both. Yeah. Like, I think that it would be unfair to make this entirely about Chelsea just like capitulating, and embarrassing fashion. I think Manchester City, you know, we saw them do this to arsenal a couple of weeks ago where they scored three goals from a combined twelve yards out like, you know, they picked their way through the problem is this, and if you've been watching ESPN AFC and their panel over the last forty eight hours or so then you've already heard a boatload of this. But it's kind of the seminal point Michio saris refusal to bend on his style of play is killing them. This is from AS dot com. When asked if he had doubts about his style of play this is after the game. No. Because today, I didn't see my football. Now, I do agree with that to an extent at the beginning of the season that works. Now, we need only to understand the reasons why at the moment, it isn't working. We need to understand the reasons it is not easy. Easy at the beginning. We played better way than at home. Now, we played better at home than away. Something's changing. Here's the crucial thing. Again, though. This is classic salary. I am not able to see the reason of God in heaven. Here's can I can I throw a theory out there as to why something's happening now JJ every single club in the Premier League. Now knows exactly what Chelsea are trying to do. The book is out on them for the first couple of months of the season. It was maybe new. I mean, I'm not saying a four three three as revolutionary what? Sorry. But like, no, well, it was new from what Chelsea of old were. But okay, it's February now like the secrets out good managers change all the time. I watched pockets, you know, he'll have a back three one week. We'll go to four like things are changing constantly people. Sometimes say, he's not willing you rush. Ancient us. All right. Like, they the secret is out guy. Just come on guys this team talk, right guys. We're just going to sit on Georgina. Oh, we're going to press the hell out of them on. Also, they have. No screen in front of a back. Centreback partnership of David Louise and Ruediger go. Yeah. Go get them, Manchester City. We're just completely able to overwhelm Chelsea's midfield at will. And it was I mean, it was almost hard to watch. Like, it was what was the thing. We used to play JJ from the Simpsons. Stop stop. He's already dead. Yeah. Yeah. It felt a little bit. Like that. Like oh. That mean went out. Okay. Good with the kids wearing Manchester City jerseys. But but some of the Chelsea I've just remembered one of the tweets enjoyed the most Ross back he should get in his car and drive back to mercy site and stay in his house and don't come out and play for Chelsea again. What you didn't think that that back pass was was? Oh my God. Just headed behind you into the air to do anything other than what you did. Yeah. And like on ESPN FC, they're all piling on gab Marcatti, and it feels a little bit unfair to me like Craig last week. It was Steve Nicol who agreed with this week. It was Craig Burley who again their points. Are all correct what they're saying? And we're not going to replay all them for you. But like just know they're killing sorry, and they're killing gab for seemingly defending sorry. But I feel so bad forget Marcatti and these arguments 'cause I don't at no point is gab saying what sorry is doing is. Right. He's just like he knows sorry because of how he covers a tie football. He's just trying to explain to them this. This is just who this guy is he's going to do this come hell or high water. You've got to give gab his ju gab said. And we read this out on this podcast because it was the most salient thing to say if you want him to change and you want to new manager. That's it. He's not for changing as Margaret Thatcher said the ladies not fraternity. Two saturdays. Not for four four two or whatever else. You want him to play style happening. Also, I would just like to say individually. Sorry bull side. You can't defend like that at schoolboy level at a pickup level. You can't play like that. So it wasn't just a case when sorry says I didn't see my style football. No. You didn't you definitely didn't. But your formation doesn't help things either. You're exposing backline. Oh, yeah. And that's why it must be so frustrating for Chelsea fan. You have in goal contact like it's almost like if the summer transfer window opened up, and you were talking about how the back line is under all the stress and pressure you'd think like who can we go out there to get to help the situation. Oh, wait. He's already on our team has fans prior to the game. Tweeden. I wonder can county can and go Leconte get into the box and create create something what? No, that's not what he does. Don't ask them to do that against Manchester City. And here's the thing, and we're gonna get the Jonathan smitten. Just a moment here. I wanna play this quote from. Guardia who's kind of defending Murchio? Sorry you. Here's what pet said about saris current predicament. I said many times if people don't understand how difficult is do something. My first year was difficult to so I could not play in the way we played in Moe's leg by not consistent. The people affect okay, right? One manager with by players in immediately comes needs time. And only only depends of the of the of the believers of the owners of the people who's in charge. You really believe in that. The the main reason I decide to come into CDs because my bosses the chairman, especially cheeky, I will have to convince him. He knows me. And when this is going what not good, okay, we try to find a solution that he doesn't believe I'm good because they win I'm bad because I lose. And that is the reason why I am enjoying the spirit Manchester with a couple a couple of differences there between. Different one. Yes for pet. Yes. They do know you you have a pedigree of winning every single place you've ever been. But she key Beguiristain was brought in two years prior to you to set it up for you. Right, right. Need convincing the board didn't need convincing. Who does? Sorry. Go to in this moment. They suck Abramovich literally. How that Bruce book? They literally sacked there are removed factors the correct term, but they got rid of their director of football and have not filled that spot. So if he's not winning with sorry bought on your bike son, whereas pet they were expected for for for teething and growing pains right now, here's the other problem for sorry as opposed to pep. I don't remember pep coming out with some of the claims that sorry has come out with so okay. It's one thing like we can all get behind the idea that a new manager comes in. And it's not going to happen overnight that like it. He's got to bring in some of his players in that it might take time. So I I might be willing to give a pass on that. But it's when you start hearing the manager saying things like I can't motivate these players like if all else fails at least do that. We'll give you a pass on the stuff on the field. We understand that. But like that's like you have to pick one of those two things to be able to do heck went full arrogant in his first season. He was constantly asked. Will you change? Would you stop putting wing backs in Meadville? Will you stop doing all these things? And he says, no, I don't change he's been successful and any listed all the things he'd done, and he just said it was going to take time and then the following season. He went out and spent silly money striker money onto guys that could do that Kylie Walker Mendy. Well, many hasn't played that much. But you know, right there spending crazy money on. On full Basle boxes point. This has not been allowed to Georgina. As really being the only one that saris brought in power from the loan signing of going in which is like again is like furnishing the front room and the kitchens on fire. So look time is important. Whether he gets that, I don't think so because the structures aren't there like they are Amman city and JJ speaking of Manchester City, we now go in the club. Shows. That's right. We go from the Chelsea side of things to the Manchester City side of things in the club. And we do so with Jonathan Smith of ESPN FC who covers Manchester City and a regular contributor to the blue moon podcast. He joins us. Now. Jonathan what's up, man? How are you? I'm good. How it going? We're we're we're pretty good. I can imagine. You are urine good form yourself. But what you saw for Manchester City there yesterday is pretty impressive wasn't it? I mean, it's extraordinary thing go into that game. Chelsea lucky very tricky show. Thanks to the destroys the millions twenty minutes. And then then he was just probably time just sit back and enjoy it. Really? It's funny to watch Manchester City on days like that. And you know, we'll keep talking about the good with Manchester City, but I want to pick your brain on kind of what happened during the summer. I mean, they held a two point lead at the start of the month for the top of the table. And then January first seven points back of Liverpool. I mean, we see man city yesterday, and you know, Burnley weeks ago, and it's just like oh my God. This team is unstoppable. What what happened in that month? It was very strange combination of factors really ill stops without the homesick or so probably and it really wasn't. They cannot know what they were. So comfortable going inside gain the nearly go just. Like an all day the office. Then all of a sudden from nowhere probably scored twice. I don't even if you remember the goal from Andre Townsend. Yeah. Go not from the ball two yards. And that's one of those things and it really rough with them not about the strike that came out in the second half gave away a penalty quickly three one. And it was just very odd to see them like that this year, notably. So in control of games actually tainted they play that speed. I probably just just really them. They they sat box 'cause he couldn't break them down. I'm the, you know, the only three points and then back going into the game. Which was we're up with seven-time to thinking pets time at city that he's lost about games. And it's. I mean lecture a good side. They we I think we've seen that recently. They played well it Spurs at the weekend that capable of beating anybody, and they again, they deserve it. I since he just went out to and they're in the real title. There's no doubt about it Johnson. I don't want to dwell on this too much because we should be talking about the positives of Manchester City after that performance. But I do want to ask you. There's this kind of threat TRAN of thought that city are so well choreographed and detailed in their match preparation on what they do. And where they should be on the field that any given moment that the players sometimes go through like a systems jam where when something goes wrong, there isn't maybe the flexibility within them. They don't know how to react because Pat has them. So well, coached you buy into that at all. I said in certain about that I think I can see that the dog. They've got that. Why you're breaking down teams? I mean, it just depend on who the playing they they can do it different ways. But sometimes, you know. I five just again and the money they could spread them down, and perhaps not going to be one of those monies us. He's going to bring on a seven strike for him. He's gonna keep going to keep going wide get low crosses into the box. And if they can be knocked out. That's right. Then it can be difficult. And I I mean there are players who have great individuals skill. I think we saw yesterday with him still, and it was up to they terrify spill beaten every time someone decidedly ROY found. So they have individual skill that can win games. The Bruins another one. Obviously he can score these twenty twenty five year old goals and things like that. And that Silva can win these intricate passes spot. Yeah, they they have a formula. They're going to stick to it. And they're not gonna panic. I think that's the thing. They they stick to it. Whether the fatal one they'll down they're going to keep going plugging away with the system that they know as work so successfully already over. Two or three years. So I the plunge the on they don't go away from it too much. So in looking at city right now three straight wins by a total score of eleven one two of those games against Chelsea and arsenal. Is this just down to like a patch of good form this down to players back from injury. Or is this just who who meant he really have been all along. Oh, those things actually. Almost everybody back now. In the squad with props Benjamin, mend even company were still a little bit. Why from into the fold, but it means that can mix it up. They can do we can say that they've had different starting eleven. I think for all of those games by the pool back yesterday went with the chanko games against Chelsea. And that was a father different system. So think not I think not comes into it. I think the defeat Newcastle. There were a few words spoken up to that game that low guys if if we're going there swin we are not going to defend title we to get by back field. And because on definitely reacted to that. On any case. I'm the season though, the pressures on on this is where the really taught place at city of go step up on the one. So they more than Sergio Guerrero to hot fix offline. Chelsea this is this is what this is. He's capable of winning. They gangs all by himself. Jonathan I wanna talk to you about says you wear assault. I was thinking Georgia Kinkladze Keith Curle Nial Quinn. I'm being a bit facetious with those names that's not fair. But, but you know, what I'm driving out here where in the pantheon of Manchester City grits. I was gonna say Mick McCarthy. But I I wouldn't do it. We're in the Panthers. We're in the pantheon of Manchester City grits sits Sergio guero like where would you rank him in terms of the greatest players ever to pull on the sky blue all I think no coffee score a fantastic header at the Dhabi. Okay. I think I think it goes. Right. The talk. I think you're gonna look at the great players being from recent weeks in the there from the past ten years. So really looking at Dovid Silva, y'all you're so right and says you're was being the three the clips three greatest players. I think they'll be people who would argue going back to the days of the sixties people. I call him about probably lay that was, you know, a gray area for the for the club. But I think he's really between Silva Guerra. When y'all yarn sometimes guero finally missed out a lot less. Yeah. I don't know. He just he just applause on this thing. I think was y'all y'all you can remember some incredible moments of individual skill some great goals films Italy with Spain as well. So that gives them a little bit more cachet. Just still in year round. He just bought any on how. Now, he's now he's without sharer. Yeah. I think he's I think would say the clips striker the show. Yeah. He doesn't have that one goal against QPR, which I think was fairly, ma'am. Yeah. I think that even if you never scored another one that was going to be a Echem into the pantheon. Yeah. Let's see Jonathan doesn't have to worry about it by drinking Manchester after that every right last one for me, I'm kind of curious to hear this from a Manchester City supporter, what constitutes a successful season for them. I mean, they're still alive for four trophies potentially. There have to be some kind of double in. There is a Champions League enough on its own. What is a success for city this year? I think while major trophy is I would say the minimum I'm by major trophy. I mean, the primarily all the companies like I think the squad is is so good now that just a domestic cook is in quite you know, I think to trophies is really good season. And then if they were to you know, if it were to go to big trophies, the Premier League champions. League which I think is the ultimate and to get them both in the same season. You know, they ain't going to get much better. Not that the fixes sexually. So that to win more than two trophies thing is I think he's very very, well, obviously, she's got huge squad. So yeah, maybe they could do, but nothing really needs to be keeping up the progress of the clip going to keep winning mentality that they have to win the Champions League this year. I think anything else would be disappointment. Is there any concern for you Jonathan and not and not team where you think maybe that's a weak link. As we go down the stretch leftback is a is a problem. They they go away with it last season. Probably in Delft was with super that Ching-Kuo did well in but Mendis been down with injury again on the Sunday's haven't been quite as good this year. If I can get men be back fit and firing left. Call amongst the season than than. It'll be very very strong. That's one issue near the one is for them. Dino. He, you know, he's absolutely out of superb season obsolete studying season, in my opinion. Should be there for the the world the moment. I think he's nearly an early wonderful. Right. But he was an injury. I think that could be a big problem. I I'm sure that anyone who couldn't fit into that role. Particularly in the later stages champions, like he's gonna be cake. Games. The really toss Jonathan Smith. You can read them and ESPN NFC, and you can hear them, of course, as a regular contributor to the balloon podcast. Thanks so much for the time in associates are thanks to Jonathan Smith. Good stuff from him. I'm glad he brings up the Fernandina thing because we've talked about that over the course of the season that like I still think that they're great if he were to suddenly disappeared. They're great stats say that right? But they're, but they're you know, they're on a tunnel race here with a team that is in Liverpool. That's clearly up for it. And it kind of feels like, you know, I I would still pick city right now if we're going to sit here and actually say what are title picks would be. They would still be mine. But it does feel like things will have to go, right? Like if either team suddenly gets bit by the injury bug that that could be enough, but they may have got their blip out in December at the right time. Whereas last season they were roaring along. And then they met Liverpool in the league and got hammered and that bled into the Champions League. Then. So maybe maybe they've done it. Right. The slow burn get their mistakes glitches own and now. They've got like they're hitting their stride at feigns like, yes, she's depressing. Yeah. Certainly are tell you what we do have more from the Premier League that we wanted to touch on. Also, a quick what to watch for as the champions. Like, I mentioned is going to be coming up on Tuesday and Wednesday, all that and more. Don't go anywhere. Geico presents unhelpful home improvement.

Visit Geico dot com and see how forcible renter's insurance can be. Today because be him because they want to send the message to my place. And I won't my message to be very clear. This defeat was due to mentality. We the guy's a team which mentally was determined than we were. It seems to me that is a group of players that are not particularly aggressive when my mental point of view of they don't have that kind of ferocity and then mentality I'm not something which I think downsizing down to all the characteristic and something which is difficult to change because you have to try to influence the mentality. And it's something which could take quite a long time. Back now. Call one of the most popular things we've ever done. Yeah. Justin, bieber's lyrical genius. So we know Bieber like soccer. Wouldn't it be great? If he somehow heard this podcast are someone costume. Did. We could get him in here. And we could do the backing track to sorry. But we could get him to read Marizzio salaries statement because I feel that's really better lyrics than what he came up with who. Do you think we are exactly that we're going to get Justin Bieber in here to record a song? I know I know people what people you see you see a wall. And you think oh, there's a wall. I think there's a wall. How can I jump over? Now. I think okay, I'm going to turn around. I'm gonna go home, and I'm gonna crawl in bed, and I'm just going to call it a day and have nightmares of a wall. Mercy. Do you think? Sorry. We didn't really talk about it before is. He is he done like is he going to last the season week by week basis? Now, I want to see for once in this new era of football. I'd like to see somebody go the distance. I give him the full of his contract and see what happens full of his contract. So you're not even saying live even the rest of the season this players in and like hopefully by Christmas next year, something we'll have chain. I wanna see Cana manager come into a club with such a rigid philosophy of how he wants to play the game on an implemented. And see what happens. I am. I am typically very anti firing manager in his first, I also don't know who's gonna come in and be much better. Because that if you look at that team there's guys on their way out. There's guys little bit older. Now, there's the remnants of title-winning teams. It's a hodgepodge. I know it's not really a team that you could say, oh, I see where they're going. There's a vision here. But it's also not. A team that should be losing four Nilda born with and his greatest city are they shouldn't be losing six notice city either. Now, there are still great players on this team is just he's not getting the best out of them right for any number of reasons. And by the way, like we haven't even mentioned this yet. I don't want to absolve the players either. No. I mean, again, if you look at the way avenue, each defended if you look at the west liquid played if you look at the way Ross Barkley, his complete carelessness small among the coaching our tactics are motivational speeches, which he doesn't have any of that can change these things nothing can change it unless the players are willing to go and act like professionals, and they were not seeing that right now or not, but the manager saying that he can I cannot do it. And I don't know what's gone wrong, by the way, I should one point before we get out which is kind of important. We spoke about the statistic about Chelsea in there in remember that early Rona form who were like they could be in the title race with city there. So. Good. They it's not just could be they were for a first few months of the season right on and we dug out a stat that would cause concern and it was the amount of big chances. They were giving away suggested at some point. They're going to get caught out. It's come to pass. And we did a similar thing with arsenal to where we talked about. You know that they were on like a what was it? A very low expected goals ratio. They were converting all of their chances. And we suggested that at some point that was probably gonna come to pass as well. And that has to. Yeah. You know, you can run your look for so long. Yeah. The stats people wanna fight stats. But no. Meaning that what we need is. We need the PFM's proper football men to have their opinions and to to not be afraid to look at Stotts 'cause expect to goals is just big chances. That's what it is. Yeah. You know? But people like me were so resistant early on because we saw nerds telling us things I shut lock at the expected going on. Yeah. It's not it's not fair. It's a poor representation of stats. People are JJ will go through the rest of some of the big matches from over the weekend and the Premier League and pretty much everything else. Kind of went according to plan at the top of the table Liverpool easing past born myth. Three nil yet just a couple quick points on that. I really felt Borman defended. Well, early on on kept Liverpool at bay the sat deep five midfielders well screening, a pretty rigid defense, and they were good. And they. I think if Liverpool didn't get the head from side of mine when they did dot could have been much more of a dangerous contest. But they got it done and the most important point from it for me is Trent Alexander Arnold comes off. Sorry. It comes off the bench onto the field. That's very important. But also Roberto for menial creativity was sublime on he needs to hit form. No because he was so poor against west time to bounce back dot fashion against born with was heartening. The we talk about Manchester City's rough patch in December Liverpool have kind of been in one of their own the one against Leicester City one against West Ham. But a three nil against born is a solid result. Now, we know like we say born with Bill do this. But it was performances for me. It wasn't about grinding you could easily growing out a wound nil. And look at it and think hot good result for Liverpool. But the performance might have been bad. I needed to see something better than I saw on the previous two games. And I saw that. Yeah. Tottenham keeping pace right now with the top two Spurs win three one over less. Or city at Wembley JJ have something here for you. With the Harry, Maguire Hillman son penalty incident, and I'm afraid bad opinion, alert bad opinion, alert, I'm worried that I'm about to deliver a horrible opinion. Well, we do it often on this podcast. Well, here goes another one potentially may I don't know. Maybe I'll agree with this. So son like did you see the incident where son was moving on the box, but he's moving out of the box. Okay. So here's my thing. And this is Spurs the Andy just peak Spurs ending here. So brace yourself like guy son was yellow-carded because the official believes that he is attempting to deceive him. So I believe now like now we've had a chance to look at it and son was deceiving. Nobody he was tripped by Harry Maguire, I believe Harry Maguire should retroactively begin a yellow card because if the whole basis of yellowcard and guys for diving in the box is because they're trying to trick the official than what is Harry Maguire. Doing when he knows. I've just tripped this guy, but I'm going to carry on and Justice late and pointed him as though I've done nothing wrong. And he's diving these trying to trick the official. He knows what he did. He felt the contact on his leg, but he's gonna point at him get up. I mean on this haven't you yellow retroactive yellowcard for Harry Maguire? And anyone that does that when we've had a chance like I understand it in the moment. There's so much diving in the sport. So I get why officials will do that. I even understood like I didn't like it yesterday when I saw the replay. But I understand why officials give yellows for guys when it's when they're not sure because they're trying to radically diving from the game. But if it's all about trying to get rid of fooling people all all tomfoolery show, active yellowcard, Harry Maguire. Yeah, you could just move on with your life. No. You won't the game. I can't I need everyone to be brought down by the way. A can't James Madison just kicked the bone into the net from twelve yards. You know, they talk in basketball, sometimes if teen is down three late night game. And they've got like a three point. Specialists who sat on their bench for the previous forty seven minutes and fifty seconds. And now they're going to bring him in and set up a play for him and expect them to hit a three and almost always he doesn't, and you don't even really see much anymore because I guys freezing cold does the same apply to Jamie Vardi coming in right off the bench to step up to the spot and take a penalty little bit. I think a little bit. He's ruined. He's run onto the field. He's put the ball down. It was very weird. He sprinted on. Right. So I don't know how much of a warm up people to go out on the sideline. So we sprints on. And but the reason he misses the penalties terrible technique. He looks like he's stretching. So the contact is in grade on the ball, and he almost telegraphs it and an it saved. I just think he's fresh into the game. Don't ask them to take a penalty. Just Madison is a technically proficient footballer. He can rule that home. It was I there was no need for. I thought it was a look if he's on the field. There's no like he's on for ten fifteen. Hits our five minutes. Even there's no way he's the designated. He's the guy who takes the kicks for for LeicesteR tech, the penalty -absolutely, but Madison could enrolled that home. You would think twelve I mean, you would think Jamie Vardi could to I don't know penalty. Some I don't know. But you are you are adding another element propensities are pressure as we've seen you're adding another element. We're asking a goal you come straight in sprint and put the ball down on your first kick of the game is is is to convert penalty. Yeah. One other note on this one just because it was a stat that I almost couldn't believe when I read it. Now, your is tell you if you've been watching Tottenham recently, The Danny rose has been sensational for them not just in defense, but in attack as well, he's been really key guy pushing forward down the flank, but I saw a stat that Danny rose has not been beaten on a dribble in eight matches. And that's incredible. He really has like quietly, you know, become he's one of the best players on this team on a team full of of really good player. You know, what I love? I love to have a list of the the players. He would have. Faced in the mid fade. See if they're out throat wingers or see if they're who to give and go that would be interesting. But it's it's mean this guy who had to battle for his time with Ben Davies when is he gonna play again with the formed any roses tiny rolls. Is that a an interesting fifteen months everything that's happened to him on and off the FIA? It's been very interesting. Let's see Manchester United. They win again. I think we're now approaching the full throes of a soul Shire watch. I think it's I think we now have to do this. And we have to launch it. All right. Yeah. I think I'm gonna work on that for later this week because they they are a Champions League match coming up. So we'll be talking about them, of course on Wednesday. I think it's time for a social watch mainly because eleven matches in charge now for all Gunnar ten wins and one draw that one draw being that dramatic two-nil comeback against Burnley goals late. I know we don't like dealing in rumors on the show, the Twi we hate transfer windows because it's one rumor after another which this. Feels different though. Well, this feels a little bit different this appeared in a an English tabloid. And it basically says that while you may not hear it publicly stated soul Shire has been given the job on a permanent basis. I'm gonna read directly here older, social or will be named the fulltime manager Manchester United. It's understood that the decision has been made at board level, although the club may not announce it until the end of the season United or publicly sticking to the mantra that the search for Josie Marino's permanent successor remains ongoing. But the hunt is over with chairman, Joel and Avram Glazer now convinced that they have the right man, in Seoul Shire Audi sentence there can now convinced that they have the right, man. The two characters involved keel, Adam Glazer traveled from America to be at United's three nil victory over Fulham at Craven Cottage on Saturday. He spoke with social after the game in the dressing room. Having already talked to the interim chiefs agent Jim Solbakken who had sat with the directors as a guest of United. So if you if you read this now, I haven't seen this anywhere else. I've only seen it in one place. And if you read this, it's. Like, I think it's this place is not so conclusive. Yeah. This place is not entirely. It is still a rumor it still rumor. Yeah. Joel and Avarham blazers the key for me. I I could see how they would be won over by. What's all sheriff stone quite easily? I can say worse, and I can see also why in terms of their now they've slipped into the fourth spot Champions League money, huge to them. Also, huge is keeping the fans. Onside making sure those bums on seats at Old Trafford are not even not just making sure United are one of the preeminent teams in the primarily. That's a big thing to them. And morale is really high right now. Yeah, I can see why they would do that. And also, these are not football people. So they will not be proper football men. No. Well, it matters when you're making decisions like this surely to have director of football. They don't have one. I would love to know where Woodward is in all of this. I I would only say one thing about this. Look social has certainly done his job since coming into Manchester United. He's he's restored a confidence. He's made the supporters proud to be. Supporters again the team is playing a more enjoyable brand pod buck, I paid Marshall guys who they paid big money for are now living up to those standards. The only thing I would say is like why make any decision now. It's still only February you haven't this guy has not played a Champions League match yet. What if they get smashed PS? Gee, if they go into like, they're just gonna unlikely. No, though, you're right jeeze raft of injury. Vanni? But like there's still time for them to go back into a tailspin. I'm not saying that that's going to happen. I'm not saying that that's likely to happen. But it's only February like what why make any decision at all why make any promise to socialize agent or sociologists let this play out. They're not under any pressure to make a decision now. There's also something that has to be factored into how about this. Team of absolute stars of excellent players plays excellently. All right. Well, now hang on. That's a little bit. No, no, no, you weren't dealing with a any run of the manager. And Marino you were digging with a guy who has had an increasing record from Real Madrid. Chelsea and the majesty United of turning situations incredibly toxic Paul was on with Robbie savage on BT sport of Robbie savage occasionally comes you know, he asked really kind of pertinent questions on occasion. I'm one of them was. Insead you think you could have done as well. As all share an Paul said. Yeah. A my reaction was oh NC fail manager thinks you can just walk into your old club chip on your shoulder. Watch your problem. And then I thought about it can I honestly say that another X Man United manager like Bryan Robson are Br maybe not ROY king because he called everyone of them. And they would find a way to have made the situation worse. Yeah. But but an an X Man United player, Paul schools, for example, Ryan Giggs, for example, couldn't come in and do now gigs didn't do well when in his short stint after Moi's, but the point being these are World Cup-winning players in some cases. Excellent footballers, I know they're playing well. And albeit, let's be honest. A large amount of these games have been against teams that they should be blowing away. Anyway, I'm just giving the by the way, I get what your son just trying to balance out there. Why wouldn't you give it to Sola Shire with the maybe we need a longer? View maybe along or simple size. Yeah. Now, we'll PS g tell a lot about where saucers at. Yes, I think so. I wonder if that if United goes out further delay of the soul shar tests that if PS PSG come up without you know, Cavani Mounier name neymar if even with that. And with that match being at Old Trafford even with that if United go out there and beat them three nil. I think that is still that is still somewhat of a statement. I I still think there's a lot to be said for the argument that you know, putting a positive forward-facing attack minded United team out should not be hard with the person. You're right. And it's why I'm saying that they shouldn't be making any decisions. But that doesn't mean that said that doesn't mean that sorta couldn't couldn't come in. And do it do very well. Right. He's he has at the very least I think what United board should concede is that. Okay, going into this. He was an interim guy, and that's all he was really ever going to be. That's what we were led to believe for probably the first couple matches in charge after Tottenham. It felt like the narrative on that started to change a little bit. I think the one thing you concede to him is that no he's now he's a legitimate candidate. We will consider him with other candidates. I wouldn't be awarding him anything. Just yet though. You know, what's going to get him the job top. I mean, do you want me to say like what they'd have to do this? I don't even think tops anything what I think I got him the job. I think February twenty four is the biggest Man United most high-stakes Man United Liverpool game in like forever in a very long time certainly since the Europa league COPA seasons back in two thousand sixteen. I think a pro a win there. I think that's it. By the way, I'll say this to change if you want to gauge good United of being since he took over is the change in perception of Liverpool fans. I absolutely that game is going to have me. I'd be in bit. You don't you? Don't wanna play them right now. Not really know. So so yeah, yeah. We know nobody knows any by the way to round out the top six just so we've left no-one out arsenal did beat Huddersfield town to one and they did concede a goal they their inability to keep a clean sheet at times upset about. So even two hundred field they conceded. They won the game though out. It's not. I'm just saying I have honestly, I have very little on that. Which means we will now transition to what to watch for. It feels like it's been gone for a while. When the hag has. Yeah. I guess the starting embarking ills that way. Oh, this should be fun though around sixteen the knockout stages of the tournament always enjoyable and it begins Tuesday at three o'clock with Roma and Porto be careful through the weekend. They did. And I saw a the you know, how who score dot com as their man of the match or not minimum. But like their team of the week or whatever in Syria, they had four members of Roma in their Syria team of the week, even though rumor laying in sixth in Syria haven't disappointed fans yet. They're they're only like what a week and a half removed from that seven one beat down against fiorentina. So it's hard to get Johnny thing going rice. What since then the draw with AC Milan. A win over Verona. So look this competition is is largely based on form at that second. So I don't know maybe an it's at home for them. So that could be gieco on. Sheet as well. I could see that happening. Certainly let's see Tuesday the match that we were kind of just talking about Manchester. United NPS g also at three o'clock. Yeah. I mean, you know, we touched on it with PSE and the injuries that they have right now, we haven't really talked about the fact that name are you see him at his birthday parties crying has wishes for a new metatarsal like feel this the if we're to look at the overall in of the Qatari ownership of PSD was to win the champions. They can be dominant force in Champions League football. We are now going into the second knockout stage, although he did play in the first leg against Real Madrid. Last season was the first like he played in. I think so missed the second, but neymars not available again like the whole point of like raking the paint a quarter billion for this guy was what to be in the Champions League and to play in the Champions League. Another not gonna have him again because fry Frank I'll be honest. He gets kicked around the place. In legal. So it's I don't know what it's not. It's really not ideal. They did not envisage this plan out the way. I'm sure either. And it's why like who do you like, I don't know there? There's no part of me that will allow myself to feel any kind of sympathy for PS Jenolan on still. But if this was another team, I probably would like, yeah, it's easy to see how they went and spent all this money on a player to win. So they could win this competition. And now for the second straight year when it matters the most he's not going to be there. Like again, if it was almost any other club. I could see myself feeling bad for them to be honest with just pure schadenfreude. I feel well I just wonder I don't want to be hurt by the way. No. I just say I just think it's kind of funny that you know, PS g did this. You know, they floated whatever rules they could to make this transfer happened. And you can only imagine how it really must be supremely frustrating for them, though, that this is now happening again having said that like, let's not act like Manchester. United are now going to just waltz into Old Trafford and have their way with this. You know, this broken PS side, they're still Dave they're still if they've got some capable pieces, but I enjoy I'm telling you for having experience of them in the group stage, particularly Liverpool PS g when they're in full flow with that that tandem Imbaba and neymar it. It's like the red arrows, it's like darts coming each side. They pull you out a position they find gaps. It's so hard to play against I can see United clean, sit and deep and defending, you know, on an attacking on the break and being really good at it against the team. When you look at the personnel. You know, you'd have I think uniting deep attacking on the break. It's. So almost as though they should still have a manager in charge who excels in those areas. He could do the sitting deep party couldn't figure out the attack. I mean, solar showers got the the pieces to do it. I think United are going through. Wow. Wow. What a bold statement from a bold man, then Wednesday, three o'clock, Tottenham and Brusca Dortmund. Boy feels like this has become an annual tradition where they meet in some sort of European competition. We need to talk about the actually you reach read whatever you're going to talk. I really don't have anything to say other things to say. Okay. Well, I would just say this. I'm not I'm not trying to be hyperbolic here. I think this is the most pressure that Pocchettino his hat on him yet at Spurs like this specific Champions League tie as great as he's been. They have not experienced that sort of success under him in European competition. We know about their other Cup competitions. Obviously, we know about the league. Yes there in the title race. But they're probably not gonna win. It. You want to know the round and I'm not. Yeah. I'm not even saying that they have to go on and win this thing that doesn't like I hate to be a defeatist here. But almost doesn't feel realistic to me. But I think there has to be a really strong showing in this tournament. It can't be like what happened against the event is where they capitulate the way that they wound up doing in that. And by no means is that an indictment of how I feel about Patino. But like this is another one of those chances where he has earned by how good his team has been. And by the fact, that they were able to advance this far, but he's got start not just him that the team they have to start taking advantage of some of these opportunities. And this like because this is so close to their other Cup exits in the FA Cup in the League Cup to Chelsea like those wounds are still fresh, I know Tottenham played well since then and they've dealt without deli in Harry Kane. But I think if they if they lose at home to Bruce Dorton in the first leg of this. I think you know, once again, people are going to be screaming Paci. No, he can't win the big one. He can't win the big one. There's a lot of pressure. There. Can I come at it from a different angle every with all those things that you're saying so? C'mon. Droll again at the weekend. Three three after being three nil up at home too often Heim and the goal the Dortmund scored their final goal Sancho Goethe Guerrero. It's probably one of the basketball is I've seen scored in Europe this season. And I'm like capture that moment. Imagined the buzz top of the bonus league playing football. Probably some of the best football in Europe disclosed is in great shape, but find taught them, and I see the way they collapsed defending crosses defending set pieces. Aqui me in particular for the second goal. I think there's a real way to get out this team. I think they are going to cause you huge amount of problems up front. They are just they're in a different place right now than we've seen previous Dortmund teams like Santeuil a I put in a masterclass game and still they are vulnerable at the back. I think Todd him can take a lot of heart from that. Yeah. I would think so. Two. Now, there's injuries on both sides. Harry Kane like we mentioned not fit yet for Spurs Marco Royce out for Dortmund big, which is huge. He's been incredible. This season daily alley. I would say is probably out. But don't quote me on that. He did post a tweet the other day of him. It was video of him training. And he was like it was basic straight-line Ronin, and he saving you. And he tweeted feeling good with like a emoji of flexing arm. Bicep I suppose is what they're called. I've never seen one. So I look I don't know if that means he's gonna play. But like both teams do enter this. We're talking about the injuries that PS g have Dortmund and Tottenham both enter this kind of wounded animals as well, we'll see which one is able to. I'm just saying free kick. You got guys who can deliver them trippy, Ericsson, Aronson and son are in such great form right now talked about Danny rose before on very curious. What is pasta Tino is? You're starting again for them. I think I don't know as Lucas more go back into the starting eleven for this. I I kind of like more as role more off the bench in the second half of close game. I don't know quickness. I think it's going to be renting with with son. I don't know we'll say and then Wednesday three o'clock I x and Real Madrid who had a grit when the weekend against letty and I ex I should flag. People are turned their attention to a piece by ROY Smith in the New York Times, which talks about I x and how they just become a conveyor belt to Thailand, put that talented. Usually, sold etc. Etc. And that's the way they've always been except that one unbelievable season about twenty one years ago or longer than that actually Louis van how was manager on that. They had they just other worldly team that had all come through their ranks their youth ranks unbelievable. Well, yeah. And without Madrid their side of these of this thing, it feels like they're starting to figure it out in this like post Rinaldo world that was big I Larry and the weekend. Yeah. A win in the Madrid Darby on the road at Athletico hundred goals regard bail. Yeah. And all the sudden they're second now in alita and Barcelona have won just two of their last seven something looks off with them messy was just not really himself. I know he's kind of dealing with an injury right now. Like, I don't know you gotta think that right now Real Madrid are actually feeling pretty good with the way they've worked themselves back into like would you say there's a title race in Spain. They're six points back. Feel that yet. I don't feel that yet. Yeah. Well, look, they still play each other. So if Madrid win that then you have to assume for the sake of that conversation they win. So now it's down to just basically a win or loss somewhere along the way. I think I I will say yes there is a title race back on in Lally. I certainly think a lot of people in the United States of disengaged with league little bit since Real Madrid for the way early on in the season felt like it was such a foregone conclusion. And maybe we have to check in with Dr mccaren or someone like that in the coming weeks and see them. Do we have a toddler isn't? It'd be a great idea. So that's we'll be back Wednesday evening when these matches have concluded to give you a little round up on the first four matches of the Champions League round of sixteen also mailbag and red cards man of the match the good stuff. All the. Yeah. All that good stuff is going to be happening. I don't have the tweet in front of me. But a big thank you to the guy who validated. My thoughts on project blue book yet. I was good for you. Yeah. You know, how I need those. I need that validation. It's important. He told me after he listened to the podcast.

Welcome insulate. Sedition. ESPN AFC. I'm Dan, Thomas. Joe mike. Craig berlin. Stevie Nikko gap mom caught he'll be with us a little later on the shows reflect on very disappointing results Argentina in the couple of America. But we start with future of poll poke per, of course, it's been a lot of speculation about whether or not he wants out at Old Trafford this weekend. He had this to say about his future. You're going to be near for three years and months of stir doing great in some of the moment by moment. Like everybody, every everywhere else. After season everything that happened season my season. He was my best season. For me. Oh been detained to China somewhere else. Thinking thinking this driving. It's time for a new challenge somewhere else. We've, we've heard rumors that maybe this is what he was thinking poise. But now well anybody surprised that he wants to leave? Then I'm surprised they're surprised. Yeah I'm super surprise. I'm not surprised he wants. So that'd be, I think he's been having relatively clear within his performance. He's although some of these stars annul Bod, always his best season stats wise. Isn't it? Well with regards to goals and assist starts owes tell the whole story. We didn't see enough of pope. Then again, he wasn't end the greatest of sites. And I think what you know what to one. I think there's a guy who's house and club and doesn't want to play. And the reason is, is like one is high stake is to the club doesn't seem to be going anywhere on, on three named the manager, who hasn't ended up not made any say, there's going to be making much headway saintly the Attlee in the transfer market. And so, therefore, he's thinking while, you know. We're gonna try and love approval. In mindset, you're gonna have another year of a couple of which sightings, and everybody says, oh, Popo was not played well again, I think I'm just amazing. But I think that's probably the way he's looking at why surprise. I always thought that Paul but went to munch issue because he felt felt many munch issue ated, your money, in oh, well, it can go, it could go money, other places, as well, genuinely believed that he went to you Nate for the right reasons and that's kinda why thinking you know, if if it's show that the willing, t- the willing, t- put plaza random thought he would be stay, but haven't listened to. I mean it shows late. There's absolutely no way this guy wants to be other than months. We from one chesty United. But then, when you think about it will not leave much issue. Did trouble three waddled kosh blue hills? He's one of them and he wants out the door. I mean, then an obsolete shambles who's going to go eight. And by the way, do we actually know that Mon United are going to let this guy goal? We don't the money. Eight I let them go in anywhere before we all scap that g minding being this honest. No. Not really. Because. They don't let them go. He's putting the Celena Rae spot. He's going to have an unhappy play. Yeah. He's only going to perform walls, but they ended the. I kinda with them, and I'm not the reason is I never thought angle, Dima, Rio, caved into early wanted to easy street to PS g when the chips were down. And in some sense, I think he's done the same because the chips out down. But then again, that's arguably one of the reasons why he wants to get out because he can't see. So I think there's a fifty fifty blame here in my opinion. I don't think he can see enough of structured behind the scenes think. You know what my age you don't believe football finishing felt full napr Emilee is really what I want to do it. So you can look out in the negative or positive, whoever you want. But I think he sees that's where United are going to be barring a miracle. And hey, thanks, it's time to go. So you can say, well, he's not rolling sleeves up all the other side of the coin. Well, he's just enough of by management behind the scenes. Do you have a problem saving then? Being this honest. No, no, I think for me poll book poke by tried his best and given these bash whenever it could be on. I think so. Yeah, every every month and he's Doug is, we know Nagai's Bach and it's been helpful when they won that says, when the loses has fault was, oh, unfortunately it's been more losses than wins. The guy wasn't even an team at the end we've been venial, she'll, he's, he's probably just didn't know for this. It does my I do. Good abbad. I get the blame. So that's probably off the reason why he wants. But I. Genuinely think he's tried these bass. He's just being a rotten team and he hasn't played particularly well teams bought when the Dunwell well spring, because just just briefly I think whether you agree, we have been honest, and we always promote honest, in play us, because most of them are dead from the feel. As I said before, because the frighten something's play us nigga keep council, but I think whether you agree with them. No. I think quite clearly what he's saying here in the running of it, we as this football club are not to him going anywhere, under structure, and the people making the decisions are not. Not good enough to take this club to where they need to go and really should be going. And I think that's has run about. We have saying. Gamma glossy joins us gab, what happens next? Trying to think who the who the third world class player. United was that Stevie alluded to, and I presume one of the publis Russia Russia would go in the rush. We'd get signed by any team in the planet. Okay. Thank you with contract situation with Rochford give a contract situation with the hair you have a contract situation. And now these from Pago and just to give you a sense of what's going on, on a macro level at United. Every indication I have is he likes being in Manchester, and he likes his teammates and he likes being they're equally. He's cognizant of the fact that footballers career isn't isn't that long and you look around two of those other three world class players right now I'm sure it is gonna stay, but are having contractual issues and you guys went over the signing situation very eloquently. You know, you're gonna look around and see what other options are there. And if you have a situation, potentially round Madrid and Champions League football which he's not going to get next season if he stays at, at Old Trafford you wonder about that. And I think from United perspective, you can look at this. Okay. Well, these words might actually spur the club into some positive action for a change. Or you can actually go the whole hog and say, well United, obviously, don't need the money. They can demand the sun, the moon and the stars four Paul ball. But and then you can use those funds to go and properly strengthened, if you're a half class full kind of guy, how much God. We are knighted poker enabled Popa, try and force United's hands about engineering some sorts of move. I don't think we're this is not going to be not no situation where all of a sudden he sends sick notes to demand a move pug, was extremely conscious of his image. And I know that some people don't like it turns people off. But by the same token, I think they're going to try to have a grownup conversation with a club and say, okay, look, you know, these are the offers I want to go, what do you what you want in return or blow me away? Tell me what your plans are for this club. Tell me who. We're gonna sign telling me what's going on here. And what if you bring in two three or four good players, and I feel positive about where we're going with social with whatever then that maybe he stays. I think that is the attitude, I certainly don't see him going on strike, or any kind of sending sick notes or any any nonsense. That it's just not really in his makeup. It isn't meteorology his agents makeup, but not as fat gob is. A story we've talked about at length over the last few days, finally confirmed today, Marissa's sorry is the new coach of events us to think you'll be a success. Well, it's interesting when you go on social media, there is so much negativity. Among you've enters fans partly, I play partly because he doesn't look the part partly because of his, his past Naples, I look at the team that he has. And I just wonder how these pieces fit together for a modique till Saturday style philosophy from the center forward position with presume because Jonah Renaldo is going to have to play center forward. You the fact that you have a bunch of older players in there. Are you going to get maturity and Aaron Ramsey to go and run around and do the work that and go Conde last year? Are you going to get the centrebacks to go in and play the defensive higher line especially when they're older now? I'm not sure I'm not sure how this is all going to work. I think he certainly has his work cut out from Franklin Paul to replace him. That seems to be the impetus right now. There's also talk that, that Darby has offered him a new contract to try and get him to stay. No doubt, Darby will want compensation. No question. Franklin part. And also, we need to give a shout out to Jody Morris, of course. Who was former Chelsea youth coach and did really, really well. He's parts assistant. He'll be coming in as well. If they do come in that seems to be the direction in which they're heading. It's amazing. How that tackle this to find the PISA alum Paul, but lake soldiers got ten extent, it's much more experienced by the way of managing than front. Bent years, more experience years and years is amazing how finds jokes funds or any funds when when a club appoints a manager. And you, you don't agree with how fix out being. I trying, you know, fight you off because you'd against this Klobe even though this. Manager. Hasn't got any real experience apart from ten to twelve months at Darby now he's very tricky situation. Yeah. Ten chilly at Chelsea with players going with signing issues with engineers to younger guys. The social media from from some this less just, just written as well as all the young guys are gonna get John's. No, no. That's, that's not necessarily the case because it's still a results driven business on. Why might be a nice sentiment he'll mobile and then it'd be Stevie end today. You want to be giving young guys a chance if the good. No, where you're going to get results. And I don't see anything else than trying to appease a section of the support. It's a mistake. Well, we can see that before to get the job. You can't see that before to get Joel. But he doesn't have the experience. You know, when you're the head coach, right. You've probably spend more time dealing with things other than coaching on the field. There's no there's no way. Frank doesn't always on union. This five is as far as. Xs and os and tactics and all this stuff, but, but so much more goes into the actually what you see on the field as dealing with please making decisions going to boat things, the right way. And that comes with time and experience and Frank doesn't have that. And most of all has no experience of dealing with what's going to happen with no sign ins. You've lost your best player. The guys are going to be relying on the future and not going to be joining the team because their NGO the lakes, the lakes, have da. And he's going to she's allusion. He's, you know experience how handle handle up, it's amazing. How am both if you compare to two guys, but into bed clubs source, Karen, lot and front lump on the booth Wavell headed intelligent, experienced football guys. But it's amazing that perception perceptions, incredible among supporters in almost closed. The big picture, and sorry blindfold. Source car and lump pob, particularly lump piles if he had no Chelsea connection, and had one years, managerial experience Darby county. This would be degraded when they failed to get promotion. Well, they. In addition more than decent for season. But I've no connection for that football club best derided ridiculous. It's a crazy notion that seem to have as that because guy played for a club, a understands the quote about the Chelsea fans, who is screaming yet, but look quantity Ola he didn't have any coaching experience came in. Things like that. But he did he did. Well, we're going to be a also ill. So had a bunch of players who, that's who hasn't reached the world class status, but would it kicking the box offer mix it mix it. Hell what was done only made one signing and fos period. Respite already they had to get them play. Of course, they had to get them playing and the ad to get them all in site with. Memory serves me right with quad. The Ola there was problems that was problems at buffalo. Now when he stepped up from, from Cochin within the, the system, however Stevie mentioned, there was a whole bunch of players radio. Not just about to come through and could ING and could ING one of the two agree is players of generation, so that, that not a -nology analysis through, particularly when the got appointment was made as just not going to stand up scrutiny, if you were in charge of Chelsea, I would a look a look long, and white, would you have salary knowing that Lamport was your only choice. Would they would? So would you have let sorry go? Would you have agreed that deal for him to go to the events is? So will you handcuffed him to Stamford Bridge and say, look, you'll hear your coach? You've got a contract, you'll stay in here. I think I'm gonna be gobble. No, I, I don't think anybody was really falling over themselves to, to keep is that mistake, given the lamp seem seemingly only option. Well time motel. The proof is going to be in the pudding. Minutes your salary. Okay. Hide success to an extent. I don't blame how whatsoever I'll jump get. Not job event is job naturally amazing opportunity for him. I think with the problems at jail. So he's done. Well, tick, but, you know, for Justice say frontline pods, your guy, you know, just find a find a tough one to sail. I really do. What would you have done Stevie? I would've kept sorry, regardless. Yeah. What's the point in? Keeping a guy who doesn't wanna be there. He's basically told you it doesn't want to be there. So you're gonna you're going to have a guy who's a manager who's no potato bowl. It makes no sense. That doesn't make any shape. And chelsea. Honestly, she see count, obviously thought the front Lampe was going to be their only option. Anyway. I mean, you think they're going to look at the world, the good coaches around the world. And whether it's a long ten point or a short term appointment, they can get a good football coach Chelsea. It's amazing how the warm has tell them because in my opinion, both of the clubs that we mentioned their eighth and Chelsea are nowhere near as tractive for some of these managers now as the where, you know. You know, ten years ago, seventy years ago, attractive, and Thames and money, potentially. But in terms on the field note, the not as attractive to the top court cheeses, the where a lot more about the story on the website. Plus, of course transparent toll as well.

As we watched the suburban garden, gnome Catholic Catholic without stubbing it, he notice that it moves, like, not at all. It's inanimate and utterly without brain function. But despite that, when it got known about how gyco not only saves people money, but also gives them access to licensed agents twenty four seven online and over the phone. It's clear to them. You should switch because yes switching to Geico is a no brainer on second thought, maybe don't watch garden gnomes to carefully people might talk. The secretary what happened last night in the copper America, no doubt about it. The best game we've seen so far Argentina taking on the Columbia. Now, Maxine leading out beside leading the charge. Guerin acount Maria up front, seven minutes in though. Marie Al brought down. He goes down injured. Api forced off minutes later. Suggests against dengue actually, the whole tournament, rotor Martinez would come in to replace him more on him. It will later on as we take it straight into the second half say this is his best chance of the game coming in. Keep it makes a stop. And then as said it just goes wide. We thank he was going to get kicked in the face. They're just maybe you're going to take a to the face just understand. Took a little bit. Twenty minutes ago. It will be Columbia who would take the lease how Many's Rodriguez playing into the aforementioned Martinez make one nil. Well, it's a beautiful strike should have been in the false place. Nobody covered. Look it up right in the same. In Columbia would seal the deal with full minutes ago. Jephson Lamma playing into about who make it to really great played on the life. Thanks to for love. Differ bowls of the here is page. That's built as proper strike getting in the end of it just reading the cross familiar face of leeann Messi, at the end of a number Argentina to fate, taking look at the stats fifty fifty Columbia advice to Schultz on soggy than they finishing up in the back of the nets. You can take a look at the front page of the Catalan newspaper sports, more of the same another defeat fraud, Encina another disappointing night for now messy gap, what happened last night. Well, it's funny people are always gonna point two two messy supporting cast being good and the coaching whatever I actually think colonie last night was let out, especially in the first half by his frontman by most experienced guys. Maria guero. And yes messy as well. I thought that was worthy issue was pregnant Columbia, basically got braver in the second half was maybe about fifteen twenty minutes spell early after the break. When Argentina looked a little bit in the ascendancy. Ultimately, I don't think they can have too many complaints here. It's strange because he think guero messy this is fantasy football stone complete strangers and they fight. So many internationals whether each other boys as as, as shock after what we saw the world counts, I wear. What do you expect everybody to kick into it, doesn't it doesn't matter? This seems to Matsunaga Jorde, who they put in charge of this group of players that can never get cohesive structure that allows them to showcase their talent. Even messy in this team. But it just seems that no matter who caught Chisholm the, the con seem to find a system or a structure that allows them to go and showcase some sale, given them a good platform, find surprise mind, Columbia, one of the favorites for less told him, yet, I don't think it's a big surprise to Gopi. I find that little hac-. You blame threefold. I mean most of this game was just a bottle of the middle of the Pont, nobody really been able to keep a hold that a bullet wouldn't win when messy and Aguado and Maria. We're getting the bowl tune three players around the movie, I don't I don't really think they were given the opportunity that often the not much. Actually to play together the game. The game was classic Columbia, Gina the both each other's throat for the fos- men at the last minute agreed food, bowl, I'm Jim. Tina absolute these do you keep thinking you're going to see something every time we step on the field for years. Don Mischer promised. No. I mean look, I, I actually think there's more there's more quality in this team. In other areas of the pitch than the people people realize, and I saw that, you know, surely, you look at the centre backs remained, Ian and patella in midfield. Also about this. I think the substitution didn't probably didn't help taking off Di Maria. I mean might do something, different and leaving out, you know, not going maybe with, with somebody like loud at all or even be Bala who can give you some creativity. But in that first half, you know, Stevie, you're describing this is called America football that these are big rivalries. These guys are supposed to be used to it. They're supposed to have their experience and have it matter. And, you know, the messy is used to having two or three guys around. I just thought they didn't show up in those first forty five minutes and, and what isn't he means it's going to be this way for the rest of the tournament, but it certainly set the tone for the game in first half. Thanks cops. Always saving nighttime. Theorists respond. And the other game today finish Tutu between power Guyon atop it, and then both and above Argentina. Extra time. Thank you, as always a your tweets, lots of international football going on at the moment, different tournaments all over the place. And apparently, there's any one man who knows about that. And that is missing not telling them that gap is the only sensible person on the panel. The rest of you have a negative. Footballing IQ. Yeah. Why people to you than everyone else. I don't know. It's probably because of my model good looks right? Scared. Take it serious. Advice. Would you give to the Claes's if they asked you? Get rid of the glazers. He didn't get sale. It's one thing it's one thing to when you want, they want to make money, right? He also will you also want. So you have to bring you have to bring in people who know about football and all that to get it right on the field. And then you bring in people to walk on the money say so you keep far you don't have the guy who's good at getting money. And but knows nothing about making decisions. Difficult with a high football IQ. Yes. Well, they got up on us a cata get gambling Ivan not saying that should have been the end. So get got McCoy. Would you give them some advice, Scott? What would you say? I think United made a ton of mistakes, I think, and Woodward is a very convenient. Lightning rod. I'm not suggesting that, you know, he hasn't made mistakes because he obviously has. But I think in some ways, it kind of suits them. Glaciers are business people. Okay. Yeah. They wanna see United do. Well, maybe if United do well, they'll make the more money but. Until this starts really affecting their business and thus far it really has it. I don't think they're necessarily going to go to make sweeping changes logic suggests appoint a director of football, a real one, not a committee of millions with Mike feeling with veto power and Seoul with veto power and all this nonsense nine thousand nine hundred English football is over. It's, it's twenty nine thousand nine now but for whatever reason they haven't done that. And I think social appointment, given the amount of people in the commentary at, and punditocracy and among United fans who said, yeah, point social points, all shot, I think, in some ways that was kind of Woodward's and may Glazer's way of saying, you know what let us give you enough rope. So you can hang yourself. This is what you want. This is what you get, and then it either works, which is great for us because we make money or it doesn't work, and we're vindicated, and then we'll go another direction saying that's what you get for big, high IQ. Big lonesome. Which sorry going should the wolves coach name. I don't know can sit Chelsea looks. That's pretty good. Split it to son to me. Correct. And the answer would be yes. I love I, I just caught the Bohdan. They'll get look it up to see who names. Branca's israel. And he's done a tremendous job business. I you know how he did a great job is doing a great job at war for he was mentioned for the job. But yeah, the program will death. I don't see how leaving in the near future. Stephen Cray Scottish accent come out the more they argue with each other. Is it the same when they got out to the pump and have a few bays? I imagine it sounds like Robin Williams is Scottish. You. Definitely. Yeah. We walks repeat. No swearing. I it's funny when you play golf because you're swearing yourself. How horrible abusive things. Coating yourself side of stuff. You call yourself. I show I will up shortly rinse myself. That'd be do before you go ahead. Oh, no, no. I know as well as we I beg you got friend and not Jimmy McGovern older guy. And he he's when he's putting. Go for. Ten tenets revenue Jimmy deposit and he's like, oh, they stop swearing them in the balls. He's hey, honestly. Is just about the drop in the whole. It goes. Some people have all sorts of different funny. Buzzer is on van loosely, Charlie CIA. I've done is played Bodley says. He says deeply failed. Khalili. Eight. We live, what's happening. That's good. We don't get my story right during your playing days. What did you do during the off season? Seems like today's primarily plays takes fees on the. But we didn't get on yours. Canoeing. Wind comp. I'm having a your. Fight it wasn't. Yeah. Paying for that. But you obviously reading your stuff you love playing for Liverpool. You love the train in the command comradery yet. So did you miss it during the season when you looking for what's game five? For preseason really. No, no. Because you think Bill or the running do priest? That's the problem that's the problem going to. We were talking about the day we used to get off finally was, like, would usually latest the second week in me. See the full team for me and then in the fourteenth and the eighteenth may. Right. And then you wouldn't be seen again. And so the Fosbury recon Jilan. Yes, you had to pick pry. So maybe a few lung K when, when, when they less out the days, and they said, six or seven th of July. And then as the years went on. You saw that they say twenty eighth of June eleven. Avenue. We you still go out long period. Whereas no, I believe one that gave him programs right to kit kit, the fitness in the diet. And all and I don't know if they have come back into the club and I don't know we used to just disappear conscious for you. If I did you have any sort of program with diet regime that you would stick to just let it go. Yeah, I raise Jim stoked to was Jill during the honestly in the old days. You went away in the ninety s you went away to eight thousand nine thousand nine hundred even the to those you went away your, your holidays, he, did we eat dead. So someplace I went for run, again, most comeback, Ken. You come back and the first day of pre-season, you will wait for that. That was always a fun time because a few. No. It was six weeks. You know, the theory about lead MOS unspoilt, scientists will say definitely but there's a fee say that raise good for you. Is well, the B is it's mind off. Then you staving, golly, who's gonna win the US open as we stand. Justin Rose is on the second you may. Glancing, Glenn gabbing Mona he's tied with woodland. Roy adding joke on this. He's gonna win rose. Yep. Because you want him to you think. With you. I wouldn't make Kip can win it. But you don't want these anti cat compete. I can tell you, the rights for this radio coming. On. Because there before final question. Whereas the past shepherd's pie in the states. Besides Steve's miss this one the golf clubs gopher. I. Yeah. I'll tell you well, because it finds see place. We know folks right? We're trying to get freebies. He's, he's a little. Oh, we don't get any free base. Now he gives us not put any goal of. So what's the problem with it? This particular restaurant name, they do the do the phone normally twist. And it's really sweet. Okay. Spoils. It. Swansea. So fun to ship was just stick to the state. Yeah. Listen gobble till you had shepherd's pie. Right. Okay. It's fine. Yes, it was a look. Are you need? You need to imagine it was incredibly snowy blizzard day. I couldn't get up Stevie driveway because it's like this. I ditch the car go up Steve two enormous dogs greet me and my hands. I did. It was cold and it was miserable. And by shepherd's pie was exceptional, and it had no Cornyn and all but. Called on that. But it twenty five pounds of butter. I want to check. That is maybe she gets out sending them out saving business. Blue apron is it then we have done SPNFZ returns screens. Tomorrow us Steve your phone. Yeah. Yeah, I abs- by. Thank you.

"Orange. Hello Welcome back to the full price costs. Hey on the rising price, the show that brings together all. tipsters together to preview the upcoming action today it's myself Jack Reed joined along side. The racing. Post. Sports Motte Langdon Bobby Jackson sponsors. Patty. Power. to be able to welcome Jonathon Smith ten live Premier League Games to get through today as well as the naps on the other bats from the other division. So plenty to get through A. Great to have you back on the show house things. Could find, S- good finds Jackie space could be back Monsanto, a few people she'd been quite a few people wonder where I am usually you get the please stay away but hopefully won't be for one week on the comeback on brilliant Nah I'm sure the listeners will be delighted to have you back on as well as bobby and Jonathan without further ado let's get straight into the live action. The first probably game this week Wolf Say Crystal Palace this one on bt Sport eight o'clock on Friday. At Jonathan show the price assay plays on what's your prediction We've got wolves at ten to eleven eleven to five draw under under the thirty dollars I. Think for me. I'm going to go for a home Wayne and him and has any time. And as a side to that only two and a half goals in. Fargo five meetings between the two teams as well. So I won't point anybody off in that I think walls. probably I'm all clinical than policy my opinion. And I don't know in terms of recent. Criticism of style of play. Policies aim should be to Kate, thousand division, and built from that. You know they're Najing save now the the average, the squad that style last week was twenty, eight, twenty, eight years of age free players in the squad room to twenty. Also, there's going to be a big rebuilding job for tech's over Crystal Palace after Shin and I think familiar I'm looking for a home when and him and has any time muggle. We made Crystal Palace's stops. This ain't GonNa let on the right arm that can division three wins club. About Stars that. I absolutely no no, and you look at some of the Old Trafford. V Southampton a very. Tricky. Team. So coming, of course, problems for sides, the season of an and the campaigns to so I think that was a big win for them. Last week against Fulham. Aren't she fancied Fulham? To win the game and that the table is so tied because that was the kind of game where if they lose the probably a lot negativity around Pilots because they beat downing around about fifteen or something but one win tight. You Roy up I agree with John Air, the wolves win is to white to go. If you looking at. So some other markets may be moved win one nil, which would have landed in free straight games that they not conceded that lost minute goal against Newcastle and also drawl Halftime Wolves fulltime the Bonilla. Lost Free From League Games, and of course, last season it was really it was trying. To be level at the break and then for them to go on a nickel winner. But. What about you you on we'll say, well, yeah, I think I'd be looking at to win this one I think they've got too much for Crystal Palace really lost equality all over the field I think that's been illustrated so far the sees him by the fact that dormitory is often on the bench. We even saw Jao Mateo stalled on the bench last time as well. So I, think. He's done a good job of trying to rotate his side make sure that he can bring on players to finish much strongly a mark just sat there. They tend to to leave it late in matches to go and get that goals I I think I'd be looking at is under one point, five goals in this game I think he's going to be a tight one. By sides are really struggled for the goals. This season wolves have only scored six times. Palestine scored eight times the lowest scores in the top ten. And you actually have to go all the way down to to the bottom three for any side that scored of them wolves. But the effective date they grind out results and I think that's why they've been successful since coming back to the primarily guy over the last few years I don't think this is going to be a hugely exciting game. I think it is going to be a bit of a grind for wolves to go and get the wind book at at imagine they'll probably by that out goal to nil. Okay. Some some agreement in that first game always good to see at just three games this Saturday and we saw with Sheffield United, against Manchester City on bt. Sport. Twelve thirty. Kickoff. Jonathan Sheffield United. One of four teams season without awaiting the primarily excite far, and it's not getting any easier for them here is. Not Really. With something to Jeff United Nine two, two, draw into two, seven, sixty, I mean that price would you would you lump Manchester City own show defensively I think this would be a different proposition for the maybe not fair so far this season on I do think win this won't offend they'll probably wins nail, but it will be very, very cagey game last year they only beat them sooner. and I just I. Don't know I'm I'm not convention Manchester say at the back the Misdemeanor Guerra and heads-up US From and adjust? Maybe on the break city probably will up too much we still in. Marriage and I think probably the whirlwind this one but it'd be soft game from on Saturday. After. The Winston. Value. Market. Hardly convincing stars the season for Manchester. City about good winning the week for the manure wasn't that. It was. Not Not. Right. By Champions League standards during a really soft group they controlled the game didn't offer many opportunities, which is not always been the case we city even when they've had so so-called easy games on Piping. Are they find ways of conceding goals? Phil what they all because a guerra's out and and chases being out a feel what Guardiola has taken a step back off the weapon against Leicester without five to an even then that gaming leagues was just so chaotic. That's not really how quality odor won't see teams to be involved in a matches like that. You know he's spoken about before the possession. is also. Like a defensive mechanism as much as anything else you keep the bull. So the the opposition don't have it an and they call her. The Ball, and so I've definitely noticed that they're trying to be more controlled that law possession against West time only conceded that brilliant Antonio goal they'd be awesome one there once they went in front like didn't really so not to to get that second third fourth goal we know that city can even against Marseille it was controlled a gain and so with that in mind more for this game is meant to win and under free and a half goals are it kind of plays into wha-wha-what joining was just talking about their about you know shifts annoyed not having much from ever of an. Such a packed schedule at the moment that I mean once you get in front, there's no need to try and get. Crazy schools we see it with Aston Villa rickles seven to but. It looks to me like it's been a calm down around the primarily goals without a one point nine. Last week and even the week before that, it was twenty eight goals in ten games, which is a big drop off from those. Free weights previous where it was fully one, six, four, four. I'm going for more low scoring weekend the game and see said to do enough without been spectacular. It come down a little bit. We were getting slightly off breath. Why don't we with relentlessness of of the goals? Bobbie is it time for for Sheffield United to start to worry hasn't been a good thoughtful. The Mazda it hasn't been the best of starts now I think they're always going to find it difficult list season with the success they enjoyed last term we we were so. Happy to see them come up to the top flight and I'm really a breath of fresh air in the way that they approached and it's always going to be tough to turn back the. Second, successive season I think Chris. Wilder, though is a pretty grounded monitor and and he would have known that coming into this second seeds and it is very much a case of back to the star and let's try and and sure we can survive again anything they can get better than that is is going to be a bonus looking at this game is going to be a hugely difficult afternoon for them. I'd be looking at the city when Tonelli's while I think that game against small sales timeout was almost the perfect preparation because mall say lineup in a similar way to Sheffield united do with that back three and wingback of. And sockeye I think much to city almost us as a bit of a a a training regime if you like. I'm PEP Guardiola would was speaking after the game talking about how he wanted wings to stay wide rather than we've seen them often do call on those inside channels leading the full bikes go round them. He wanted them to hold the slide and I think they'll be doing that again again, Sheffield United taking up that type of approach going into this game I think Manchester sit you'll have fall too much for the blades. Despite bringing in Marin brewster who looks like he could be a good signing eventually, he's not quite been able to strike up that partnership yet with what Bernie or and if the other players you just fill the all lacking a bit in that final third. I expect city just just maybe to wedge it one possibly two in this. And too. Low Scoring Games predicted by our panel to start off with I wonder if this next game will have goals as Burnley against. And Jonathan how Patty Powell. Pricing NECE. We got Burnley at nine two under two thirty, the Draw Chelsea won't. No. I can't unfortunately barely often poke the of an against spurs books. Couldn't rarely bread them down the couple of Chan season. I just taught them well organized the Canada game. Plan, marine, your new was doing on I think Chelsea. in the week, and that might have an impact on them in terms of to take potentially or just. In, the last few mateen between these two teams has been high scoring and. I think to me Chelsea win and probably the both teams score all Chelsea winning over one and a half goals. Thinks. Looks About for me I'm just not convinced Bernie this as the brought in. Reinforcements and yeah the Mike Struggling with. Mark where do we stand with Chelsea? There was a lot of excitement surrounding them go into the seeds and it's being cold full them. Sifi lot months uses light Manchester City a win in the week in in Europe. where, where they are going into this game On never. Never. Felt fully bought into the. Frontline Paul Great So Lost season federal he's been pre sized this year so far. because. They've been known preseason. You know for these teams at out stack of new plays the idea Muslim from outside the permanently the only did that you could just froze out together and it would would work straightway. Just never rent to me that that that was likely So often lucky deserves a time with this team before people start lying into him A. As as ever the case of you know he wasn't as great when people saying he wasn't he's fired as what people are saying now I mean very difficult. To manage a team when you got somebody like kappa, in gold, just making black white too many simple mistakes and Tiago silver against West Brom policy to one of their players. So I feel like he was an individual error, the costume. So of earlier on in the campaign, which is probably not that much of a surprise. Bring in new players. Appoint, awhile troughing was was a good result showed e could shut down You know a game and definitely Mendez big difference to them in go fight full matches in waste any lawful matches he's kept four clean sheets so. You. Wouldn't go overboard happened against Krasnodar ivory amid weight because I mean, they'd goalkeeper funny found somebody worst in Catholic, he was several of the goals came really late. My Best Bet for this game is under two and a half goals in Burnley. Very, well organized against Tottenham eventually broken-down. Just feels quite limited. What they're trying to do from it's awkward to defend against but you know what's coming and the way that Chelsea of to step out defensively. Food they've got personnel probably to deal with what you're about to throw at them. I'm not expecting a great game a game fortunately, all saints we got for. This is not one that's fine. That's fine. It doesn't matter master comedic science game without goals. Bobby does feel as if Burnley lack result somewhat we going with away in. Yet Chelsea album the handicap minus one is what I've looked up for this game you you look at the last two meetings between these two sides to more and and Chelsea been pretty comfortable in them a phone L. Victory Afford to victory I think they'll have more than enough about them not to go and when they won handsomely is as well as she slept before they brought in a lot of attacking talent over the summer and yes, it's. Taken a bit of time for them to bed in Hockey Zayeck for instance out the picked up in that the one preseason game that Chelsea had he's come back now got himself on the scoresheet against Krasnodar I, think it's just starting to come together a little bit more now for Chelsea in expect, we see one of their better performances in the primarily the season when when they go to only been pretty woeful to be honest I think You look at what? Sean died was able able to do I suppose over the summer in in terms of his transfer business and you have got a bit of concern about how the season might develop for them. He's done a fantastic job Sean Dashboard I think it might be starting to come to the end of that type of a road. Now, I'm not also maybe be looking at Christian. Pulisic to to get on this go she got a hat trick in this fixture last. Season when he really sort of put himself in the spotlight, he stepped up in that matching them one quite good goalscoring run after I e scored his first goal of the season against Krasnodar. He's now maybe just starting to get the fitness levels they wanted after he had an injury at the start of the season. So I think the American maybe want to be looking at Krista logo score Angola's as well the next game five, thirty, eight on south today Liverpool taking on West. Times Jonathan. Find it fascinating. Little put. It feels as if. The narrative around the mix as. That may be not were law season. They're struggling with injuries they pump by villa still joint top on points you know and the second in the League where we would Liverpool this season. Knock Myself I just think that the center our situation could welby on doing this season. Like most teams, cities are defensive problems and to me that are in and around that saw top six, the not not really stunned out defense I think what will win little things from fray we'll propellant ball with this as i. think that's what it's going to be solely reliant on them discover Mago on the opposition. And and I think. I definitely I think the whirlwind Liverpool but I think it'd be a winning team Cisco and I certainly in terms of Western look quite well drilled in recent weeks and Finkel from an Sonia will calls up wholesome issues I mean the Jones at came on the overnight I. Think are Williams's center after Liverpool he's only nine saying I mean it's a big potentially play against someone as experienced as unsown neo on a I will this one but I could be a close game and my over in the match will be Tomaszewski to be carded for West Ham. Is committed the most fouls in the premier league this season. So that might be value that for proponents. In stuff mock Westheimer certain I go completely wrong with see not didn't think they'd be too much competition for any side this year but they've looked through it having a show without provide 'em China's for Liverpool. Just to speak about what's time again off the Waffen. Online couple of weeks ago Have to have. In that game against Tottenham they never free goes Walsh even so. Go. That they played reasonably well supposed to scored. We've I for shots really and they were creating chances and so put into the Bautzen for now Mr Open goal eventually got free scored free lessons go four walls. Much possession against NC is difficult game but. Recently. West. Ham have been absolutely fresh in fixture against city and this time they were then so you can see progress being made for sure even against Arsenal when they lost two one, they won the x g that night and probably deserved at least appoint at the game they're they're unlucky loose so that definitely heading in the right direction at the holidays fixtures. At. The start of the season. So I think they can be really pleased with that. I- points particularly off the losing the openness a new call. So what wait where they were pre objects? Come, on a lot since then. We'll definitely wouldn't be putting live appoint any ACURAS. This weekend that they look at look sure enough a to feel the probably win and so that that the Liverpool to win a boating score angle looks the best one to me is while oversee for being picked up the injury gets MSCI land. Emit Wade suggestion that may be magic could be back. They desperately need him to be because Antonio who has been declared fit? Offing. This morning he's he's such a difficult player to play against you know. The most graceful He's definitely harmful. Gird graceful a handful I left that. Bobby too narrow Liverpool winds predicted far will you with West Ham hair? I won't. I've got to make a clean sweep in this got Liverpool boat teams to school written down in front of me as well. I. Think I Liverpool in Midweek when they played McClellan pull poor actually quite lucky to come away from that much with way the winner. Now you can KLOPP at made changes. He dropped his front three just give them a little bit of a break and they didn't really click in the final third for the most part the game they could have been behind early on there was an under stray a chance that that was well saved and even in the latter stages of the match when they were just one Nilo. Mitchell until two or three big chances again that they failed to turn home. So the pulse of that match where you thought you know what Liverpool on looking at their best mean it's understandable I didn't have their strongest eleven out with spoken about the defensive issues and the front three being arrested there. I think that from three coming back and having had a little bit of a bright they of make cameo appearances at the end of that game and they will be a better false in in this game against. West. Excuse me I think it's GonNa. Be a game between two sides that have got goals in them. We were spoken about Antonio as well. He's got two goals in his last five games against Liverpool. So don't rule him out maybe getting on the scoresheet in this one. But each just in the heart of that Liverpool Defense Gallison back now, which is a big bonus. He made some big saves against Mitchell and but the there's just a lack of and it was Joe Gomez he was the senior player if you like in the heart of defense went when young reese Williams came on so that they may be lacking that leadership at the back in and you wonder if maybe That that looked to get James Milner impulse for someone who's he's got a bit of composure in midfield and can drop into the fence and offer a bit of support that might be a way to go forward for them but I think Liverpool we'll. We'll be able to find a way past west time that the good Games these two sides over the years I think this could be another good one this weekend.

Dot. POTTY POWER DOT com eighteen plus become aware dot org. Welcome back to you part two of the football post costs here on the racing as myself Jack Reed joined alongside Motlanthe Than Bobby Jackson Jonathan. Smith from Patty power today to talk us through old things, primarily can get onto the naps later on as well. The early kickoff on Sundays Aston Villa Against Southampton and Jonathan Walter starts at the season is being roster. Villa. Indeed yeller the surprise me to be honest the camel stock last week against Leeds we're going seventy five for this one, five, two, the draw on seventy, four, Southampton. What how do we are? We say this Guy Obviously you apparently delighted come unstuck against you'll boys we'll get onto patrick bound for later. I still can't believe he scoring premium hat tricks but that we go strange things of how. Do you think Southampton will be able to find a way through here. I do actually. Yeah I'm GonNa go away when. I watched Southampton for about sixty minutes against Everton the other day. An asphalt who actually very gold. Salt fairly well drill fairly while organized and I think for me simulates quite high press back on I think. Innings and Jackson's probably will call them. Defensively issues on our the saw declawed Samsung takes Leeds that the. Barclay out the game really and the Greeley you saw the playback Favila and if the can keep them pretty quiet often they've got this one, the concern trouble Hillary after the got the souls in the casual to win this one. So I'M GONNA go for the price is at seven four think away when Anthony? Mark Better Hurry and considering this dot lesage's and it seems a fair price is now. Odd. Financing. I. Install. A bog five villa. You could look at it and say, well, you know most teams beaten. Fulham. Jeff regional down to ten minutes early missed a penalty say. Nothing special, unbeaten champions seven. So a lot of. I mean that was just a crazy game probably probably can't take anything out of it was it was so stupid you just call. So take any longer terms of use our. thinking. And that. Was a good one Roy of the Roy, the death. But yeah, I expect village to be better this season than the than what they show but still go I supposed to. Do a little bit more before you can start suddenly put them in a consistent mid table team and. Southampton consistency probably less strong point all have a but Southampton of a team of. Poise calls regulars have liked them for a good couple years definitely that there's to come from them and they're starting to show it on a more regular basis. Now that there were horrible team to play against the press is really good. It works apart from a shocking for five minutes against Tottenham. I. If the WO- The season you come back against. The free free innings and Chatham's off a twin set up from a different southbound is no it's not an anti villa of suggestion this one justified offing, the Southampton or really good saw go for them drawn our bet. Yeah that's fair. Enough Bobby adult bear bile acid, his great start but you look at Southampton seventh in the Table Two points behind that is so they'll be quite impressed with that while. There will be an a different year makes beating Everton lunchtime exactly year Rahm from from that humiliating defeat against Leicester and I think that the club and manager deserves so much credit for sticking by hatred and the Austrian for turning things around the he's made some good shrewd signings. In the meantime he strengthened in the right areas I think a lot down to his management as well. There was a lot made last season about Shea Adams and his failure to maybe make that step up immediately from the championship after scoring goals. was tipped to be going out on loan, but ours until made it clear he wanted him to stay around the globe. He wanted him to learn and develop within Southampton, and really get to grips with the philosophy I. Think we're starting to see the benefit of that this season items for me. Sometimes best player he scored in these last two games. Obviously. has taken the headlines because he scored more goals but. Is what Adams does off the ball as well. He he makes intelligent runs e comes shows shortly links up nicely as mark said, I think those two put the topper of really started to Gel quite nicely. So I think they could be a top ten side quite comfortably this campaign. Account. Quite pick a winner from this one APP and impressed by. Likewise at the the business that Dean Smith has done, I think is has been really good. Watkins. Coming in in particular trail. Rare quite like him too. I think he strengthened in the right areas Barkley coming into support greenish in that midfield some struggling to pick the winner from this game up my bet would be adams goal of the back of scoring in in successive games I think red hot form. He's one you need to be looking at set to continued that streak. You. Call. Next up on Sunday two o'clock kick-off one Jonathan, how Patty Power Crossing this? Newcastle fall swelled to five the draw and Everton Century eleventh annual selection plays. I'M GONNA go for Newcastle Draw back Just think Alison at the price is a slight Reacted overreacted in terms of the market price after me the when offer team to turn away at Newcastle last year in and around that mark and if you compare it, the first game of last season asked no went off at ten to eleven et eleven to ten cent gems. He's pop. Saw Me I. Just think the slightly. Overreaction forever yes Hamas. And today I I'm still not convinced in terms of Pickford in between the goals abbots nothing. Is. GonNa. Come. Defy. Think program she locked the Mayor Well, look for replacement in January. I think for me, Newcastle. And Wilson and some maximal thrown in Kobe difficult and if they do need to get the ball into the box, they've got caroline the an offense probably going to be able to cope with We've abbots in on thing. Yeah. Just the price is I just think to shop for me for a moment ago for Newcastle Drano. Mark, with the permeates fascinated with six games into it feels as if we can get a taste of what teams are going to show for the rest of the campaign but you look at the table and it still doesn't feel like it's taking any kind of shape so far where do we advocate arrive at the moment? Off In what the best eleven will fill that they can compete for a European spot but the the properly Evanston of. Is the. The missing some very important players for this trip to Newcastle because both fullback surrounding. Yeah, and also shame Coleman than they offer the team a lot of you know. Whatever. It's crossing Calvin which causes. A great strength of He's also just offered the whip particularly. Coleman. Because Hamas likes to come inside I'm Ben Godfrey you'll know this Jack, AMIS qualities but I don't think he's ever been talking Roy back so. That was a holler position on though Everton fans in may be. Joel. Joe. Kenny to start a gaze new call. So instead just to give them that to net netful. More tacking outlet I suppose because it will help the team but you re Charleston out as well. It just feels like one too many I'm not a big Fan of new coughing the market generally as them Roy, which is you know a a team is punching above their white and the results were better than their performances and have been for a long time an student being that sustainable and. Steve Bruce some people say he's doing well over people saying you get lucky. But in on this occasion on going to go with the tentatively. Like no big fan of the stocks that putting up but just think Newcastle or draw double Chanz purely on the basis to Everton missing some very important poisoning sure that it's really factored into the market and interesting bobby are you in agreement? Now I'm going to go the other way I did quite fun. So you have it's in in in this one I think I'll bounce back. All Things considered a dad that they have got some key players missing but I quite liked the debt that they're in the Everton, squat maybe not so much in those fullback areas book I think in the midfield there well complemented with depth and in the forward areas as well I expect that he. Might go towards Banal this time. Rather than Alex Award I think he really took his chance with both hands when he was given the start against Southampton. Out came on a half time and looked at a little bit better efforts and maybe got some momentum in that second period against Hampson until they were reduced to ten men and the game at really got away from that. But I I like tonight. I think they're playing some good football definitely contenders for Europeans this season that at one three of the last four it's in James's park and they lost them back in March twenty nine team. But a aside from that I picked up a couple of Winston Nila in the northeast and and tend to perform quite well against the magpies. So I think they'll go be a big response from them. This weekend color and Chelsea made his claims at the start of the season that European ambitions and it's games like this they they need to be winning. I think they've got that loss of their back now with which was may be something that the Angeletti would have welcomed is all well and good making a great start to the season and being on beats and the only side unbeaten when they went Mary's in the Premier League at that point, but you almost want to get that first loss out the way. So you can get a bit of pressure off you and now they can come back clean slate trying get on a bit. Of a run again and see whether it can go from there. Yeah. The game to try and predict that one. But some some good insight from Lavar, all of our guests there four thirty on Sunday Manchester United Against Arsenal This has the potential to be crack. Marcus. Rashford can do no wrong at the moment it seems also take on Don and which I must admit I associate more with all weather racing than a than a football team but guy Jonathon power prices for they scan. Monday nights to the evens five to the drum five to arsenal. Tough one to predict the game which way we getting. Married and. I'm going to go away we actually I'll think Haslam won't. Old. Trafford. Since two thousand and six in the in the Premier League offense probably want to try and change recold. It's not great and I think if I'm starts in midfield. Ask No probably do look a bit of evaluating about islip in Michigan. Saw Bite in central midfield, intended the breaking play down for the last couple years. Now I think I'm gonNA bring that to the to the fall here the plot to stacked up I. Think you know it's purely dependent only attic against tonight or be the giveaways to reach thinking the apply on Sunday and I think Gabriela while at the box Vinograd signing for us. No but again, my al suspended probably outside Cavani is probably GonNa lay the line which will be interesting sally got song and I think it might work for a about anytime go Scott Markets Potentially A arsenal here it'd be a tight Kejie, fast afraid the last fall into Old Trafford between these two of any the draw I think the my avenue fair. You know it depends Manchester United back. We know of other defensive issues solid enough against. Leipzig. Conceding goals, it could be. Could be. I think. The price is probably GonNa go away when. Manchester United's form is fascinating that unbeaten in eighteen. If you look solely mid week games, a Manchester United found a photo twits at all smiles asking to ban week hadn't football this weekend game. Do we predict a Manchester United? Independent at one guy from on the defensive also And I'M GONNA. Go for awesome award or draw double challenge so. I I suspect tight game first of all John Because. It's a good job also lower pike fifty million for a multi from Leicester Thomas Policy is the guy that. You'd been. referencing really seven Stephanie up that has nothing he will make us know. All right. So I think he will make a difference. Definitely. I suppose the program also have had these. They've not created it a huge amount really in recent games but. They did okay. At Liverpool I mean livable were brilliant in not matching. Kazadi Chong's a really big challenge. The could have completely changed that game. The only got beat one nil up man sixty again that they created a few things. So we not an g of new point nine according to FBI By away to Manchester City. I'd just filled the last game. Kind of really put also on the negative. Spin I'm not sure go that far because it's been a tough star for them. They've been way to city that being away to Liverpool. been getting results in last season under auditor they did in in. Big Games. Of course, a few problems for Manchester United under all that's a already. I. Just know a Menu With Brilliant Against Leipzig but Ziegler for them a Lotta space behind and the way the also play these days. They don't do that. So I think you know struggled to break down teens the sit back against them, and if Austin calling the playing cautious way that they have Imerese await something, it could be another frustrating often the united. Bobby I'm not sure how much the ratings of that lives game is mark mentioning sap in a very strange way didn't I am? Tricky game against the both sides. Hey, how do you see it going? Yeah I'm struggling gun to to pick a winner. So for me, it's looking at the overs market and over two point five I think would be the way A- Go Manchester United I've been involved in some extremely high scoring games they tease him four of their five in the primary actually had over three point, five for all snow. Four of their six games have been over two point five. So I think we've heard the talk therapy by having defensive issues. All snow likely to be without debit. Louisa I think the latest we're hearing about is about him is that he could be out for a few weeks potentially mccotter ahead of the game in the AROPA league. Against on talkers has been talking about it regretted not having William Saliba in in his squad because he saw in options in our of defense. So he's got skudra Moustapha only just back from injury and Gabrielle Magalhaes. Well, who's WHO's likely to start so then you wonder Freshness wise. WHO's GonNa Start Against Manchester United at the weekend can Miss Daffy to two games in quick succession when he's only just back after a spell on the sidelines so I think would both having those issues at the back from may be looking at the overseas market you may even go towards the over three point, five goals, these two sides and like to play on the front foot. So again, the ads into to the factor that that there should be goals in this one when they take to the Old Trafford. Mock will come to you fast on the next gang Tottenham Brighton Seven fifteen kickoff on Sunday Tottenham with the top scores in the primarily. Sorry fall this season Cain son linking up brilliantly while. Finally going into fifth gear. I don't think so By that? Were really say con-continue coming a reference. The earlier I didn't actually feel spurs without great against West's time. I mean all of a sudden expect the collapse lay on. wasn't sure that it was a vintage performance was kind of hearing all time. It felt a lot. So a school board judges of looking at the gang thinking it was free free new and therefore they they replying amazing for our really good against mansion or even when it was Eleven v Eleven. And then you can look at the Bernie game where they did show something else. Nothing. They needed to do that off to the West Time Gaiman We sort different sides it's hotline didn't create law in that game all ever I? mean. This will be a completely different game. Against brought a new Y- choking cheese rarely bundling brought in the way they both play their football. Bryan have given Tottenham of problems recently, absolutely Hamad them at the AMEX and a even. Over the Christmas period lost year they. Were quite so difficult for Tottenham to get hold of Luffing that their forwards Mo pay uncommonly at a type of strategies that dire order Varo particularly don't lock playing against because they constantly running in behind the dining as similar to strike A. Issues in Nepal. So wouldn't be lumping on Tottenham at the at the prices. A expected to win. Just looking saloon maybe the correct score, the narrow spurs win a that Tottenham to win two one around about seven Walmart, could be the whites go a tricky game. I'm Jonathan Brian I. Think we always come on this post cost and bake them up almost but the sixteenth in the Division One win. It'll go this season I'm no. This isn't going to be the easiest tests for Spurs, but you think spousal managed to get through. The will do I. Mean Fall to seven Spurs free to win the draw on fought one Brian I mean. here I haven't been overly impressed in the brightens signings they last season, the second high scar was own goals and not having addressed brought in anybody else from Paul obviously, most fingers got enough that and for me on overly convinced and I think Spurs will probably they'll Scott certainly mall moguls and Brian in this woman and I'll just. Obviously, to win the game and I just think. For Me Tottenham showed the got the to resilient. The can defend hasn't when the needs and the consultant all and I think here. I think might spurs minus one for me. They'll tottenham going forward be worried in terms of the. brutal. The before up until the new year, they'll play seven. Days so you'll say definitely need some backup in certain positions annoy mentioned that before the chancellor window. In in September October. On.

I should call the appropriately I watched them every four hours and the long. The doesn't out. Guy Bobby. How do we get this game going? Yes. Suppose when both teams goals, the way that I'm going with this one spurs kept a clean sheet at home in in the primarily snowfall they season and and breaks of school in all three of their away primarily games. I think Spurs hop quality at to win and on the basis of those two stats on the goals going on I. Think Unlikely that we're going to see Tottenham with with a clean shape especially, the fight they commenced this one up the back of of European football. Maybe that just adds to a little bit of fatigue and does give Brighton an opportunity to go and score I'm getting. A bit sick of watching Brighton though and thinking you know what they've put in an all right before woman save but they just don't then have the end products that I'm willing them to go and do something better. I really liked grain potter I I like the majority of the place he's he's in the eleventh thing that that good quality but they just seem to lack that little of real belief. Maybe when they get the final third, it doesn't quite come off full them and I think going to talk is going to be an extremely difficult trip for them not the kind of game the really want. Trying to get their season open running. This fall down the line already I. Think Tottenham Them. We'll have too much. Now I think all the Games Tottenham I've been playing. His is actually beneficial to we've spoken about Liverpool and Manchester City Manchester United. Already. and. The fact that maybe there haven't looked their best so far this season for for different. For different reasons but I think spurs the fact that played. So many games and Marines able to he's got that big squatters mark says it's been hugely beneficial for them because he's he's been able to build those fitness levels open and for me that probably looking one of the better sides that are obscene at the moment. Yeah. have to agree on Bryson's why does fail out if broken records on hey, we're always saying, oh, he's GonNa. Click sued for GRANDPA's decide never seems quite get another fascinating fixed that one mondays primarily games still to go I'm sure journalists nonleague angles, lights are on, and of course, the naps still to come.

POUND DOT COM be able to. Welcome back to the final off the football podcast. This week is already been a tasty show so far two more premier league games to preview. Let's start with full of versus West Brom on Monday. A five thirty kickoff pay both of these sides still without a win in the primarily. So fog this season Johnny as is the horrible the away team hey, GonNa get off the mark. Seven six, five Fulham twenty three to send the drawing fifteen to I not record probably GonNa Continue. I'm going through a draw in this one. Think the last last two times a matlock. Nell saw I don't think it's really an inspiring night set football to be honest FA mate. If anybody's probably GONNA scar, the MIC on the first federal shots. In the AP L.. So this season saw on the May I just think yeah, he's got drama all over this. Mock, will you be shooting into the swamp? A Won't be putting fifteen quit for this. You feel like it should at least be a tenor, not only follow given. Everybody's being the championship next season anyway Kind of discount. Haven't had one yet should. They they should also be discount for Brom fans who feel what they going to be paying to view every single week because they games so were Michael Cox of the zonal marking famed saying that you know the Mondays over early early position is so the noon lost matching the day. Go that feel about it. It doesn't stop it being a really big game for for both teams for the reasons that you mentioned. Getting win. Some imported. And you can just imagine. Don't win this one don't. Feel like to that two seasons ago all over again for the May even if it's different players different manager and into different issued. So I don't think heads haven't dropped yet but if you lose to west Bro Hug you then looking round with if we can't beat them what where's where's the winged come from? I'm going to give them another chance. A department against crystal, Palace last week, and Money or take them up in the paper but. I just think we've we've fallen. So sowings in some of their other games particularly shift which today even against walls while I was quite impressed with some of the things that they did and they bruins. Entrusting players love the chicken, and look at the start different golf forward Fred just need rich. White Cop really doesn't happen so far for him. I just. I just be aging particularly, Hollywood. I'm not sure you can confidently say that. West Brom. Fulham and that's what the prices a suggesting that if you take away advantage. Definitely Bobby even last season, you could save full and West. Broadway will miles behind leads is quality in in the championship and that's already shown the season. If you had to pick a winner here he would get going towards. If you fall me I'd have to go to West Brom but I unfortunately I, we're gonNA, get a winner from from this game I. Think we all set for the last four meetings finished in a draw between these two sides, and they tend to be quite evenly matched as as that suggests. West Brom. Haven't beaten Fulham since two, thousand, nine, hundred, twenty s is some way back. You have to go for the last time the buggies managed to come out on top. But I I I've liked what I've seen from them this season I remember watching them against Everton at Goodison Park, and obviously they had that signing all that really changed the way the game finished but. Up. Until that point and actually gave a quite a good go back to the game. Against Chelsea as well, which which, of course I throw away in the end bought. For a period clicked quite well that they've got some good players in there and I think if I was to be backing one of these decides to maybe step this season. I'll be leaning more towards west. Brom, although I think it's most likely both will probably go down. Fulham as Marx really like the addition of of Adam. Look. He looked bright when he first came off the bench in his first game and as look veteran batteries, it's gone on I think he could be. One of their better players this season. But whether that's enough again, we'll we'll have to wait and see. But yeah, certainly won't be part with my money to watch this one. Two sides lacking in Collins I can think law things. I'd rather spend Mahanta and pounds on and spending on on that at the next guy now looks more exciting leads against. Gone Jonathan You. You can bow Saudi like about leads because you've got a lovely start to the season. She, hold up well rights at five leads twelve, five, zero, and eight to five the. I'm going to go the whole way nothing less. Less district to Athens. Could well check out of an on I just think that leads so far this season, the high pressing game it's been brilliant. If if that's what white walls, it could be a completely different game lays obviously struggled to break things down last year that saw a sock off the ball on the on the Monday. Night football analysis is quite interesting when lades even they'll nil lead went. Forward Against Wolves and there was a massive gap between the central midfield and Senator Defense walls exploiting don counterattack in the second half and the May bodies experienced at this level could well, it could make ago it's going to be very close I certainly think the too often this could be a close game, but I just think maybe later less does long triple X. agrees in. Europe. League this today. I, just think leads probably will be fixing might be quicker and I just think yeah, often. Might just will. Benefit Jacqueline. I for me season the look good on one occasion Paul you know the free no defames western been an example of that. So I just think familiar laid. So I'm winning I'm GONNA go with. Mauka award on Patrick Bamford as well because I'm sorry judging him off his small-time at Norwegian and not probably wasn't fair because he was awfully woeful when when Norwich added but he's been marvelous. Doesn't they? What did you think of how he came when he was that he was also Vague. Northridge for all of the food now. Patrick Bamford is always divided opinion on even more substance. He went to leads because he should've school mu goes all season on the. There's no doubt about it. I didn't even season before but be said, just stop buying men and had just unwavering support and in he was the raw foods for leasing. All pleased. That move be outsource opposed the Bamford he started to to repay that faith and Bamford offers more than just goes to the team. Anyway, he understands exactly what be also won't from Doesn't surprise me that you know agree goes having supplying album positions because Bamford is is. I've seen the suggestion that may be somebody that of confidence and. The no crowd is playing into somebody lot. Bamford advances because if you misses one is no, it's not big deal united groans and amongs, and the could be something in that Not, we always try and so poor genders to stuff that way. You know for randomness but it's an interesting fairy at least not sure. It'd be celebrating too many goals in this game the on gun for under two and a half of goes as my best bet sounds like a risky one because in freely leads is much you so fall, they've scored at least free goals but. For a long time against Aston Villa a sure they that full frigging Fulham was a full free they scored with virtually every show against Liverpool I'm looking more at the Alva gains ready that were quite tactical quite tired again, shift its particularly against walls demand set game was chaotic, but I can see woes less than using wolves as templates, what they did against all snow played on on the edge of their for. A long time and then waited for an opportunity not quite sure which way it's going to go. But often say a tight game here and I understood off was Scott Bobby Jammie bodies. The obvious threat to lead is a six goals already for him they season and Leicester with all the talk about lead so far in this little preview but Lester Fulton the division full Wednesday season thirteen goals scored a solid stop. Yen and I'm becky unless the to to get the win in in this walnuts my best back for this game I think, yes. They are going to be involved in in your rope league action and the traveling across degrees but. That got plenty of time to recover from that back on a Monday evening that that they'll be in action so I think Brendan. Rodgers. Will have the opportunity to to give you a as a slight break before it gets them back on the training ground and he's a great manager Brendan Rodgers. Incredible job that he done with the foxy so far and that they'll be up there again, competing for European places. Again, this season may be dependent on how far they go in the League as as well to considerable and Walnut at all snow munches to city and West Brom in their three away games. This season probably don't read too much into the West Broadway bought Arsenal and Manchester City at a fantastic results there. So I think we we need to give them a lot of consideration for this game and Jamie. Baulch. From injury of the bench to get that winner against Arsenal has to be regarded as the key figure in this game it is worth bearing in mind that both sides of I've got quite a few injury issues at the moment I think less store only set to get stronger once they get Wilford indeedy back, Recount Pereira in that right back position I think it's important to be on the valujet rarely when when he's playing on that right inside and I, I think it's going to be a difficult game for them. No doubt leads plenty of credit as well for the weather perform this season but I just think that the tactical now Brendan. Will. Way. What Marcello BELLSA has to offer in this one we know exactly what leads are going to do. They have a planet and they stick to that I think lester a more versatile and and should have the tools to win it. Guy Brennan. Stop looking forward to that one that the ten premier league games this week old Previ- great inside from all be and Jonathan. Let's take a look at any other fancies from any other divisions model come to you. I want you to delve into Europe is signed this week it's not really it's a Tricky European called one. I'm? Not. Sure. From brave enough to put lots of wind maybe on the w Charles but SUSS swallow. In Italy traveling away to Napoli, not easy gave a toll Napoli strong favorites as you'd expect. But Saas Wollo. just a really good of fun things to watch where I just attack every single gain their unbeaten. So far of the one free that fog matches, and if you have a look at the goals that they scored this season freeing against Torino four against Bologna four against night forgets betsy a as well saw. Of Star I suppose you could say, but I just think Napoli Revolting Europe on Thursday so definitely won't be backing them in terms of the AFL outside of mine of not Nord no huge amount. I suppose I would say hold to win a white swindon already struggling at the moment would be one and pizza interesting in the market against Shrewsbury. So that might be one of the interesting thing if they keep getting. Bigger offering back, a pizza for Shrewsbury do very well in possession second only to entertain Don's. But in terms of shots on its August one things worse than them so far in league wants not doing much with with the ball. So probably go for pizza for win. Let's stick them in the ACAS. Look Tobia season I'm Jonathan will come to you. I always alad back to you on how're town law season than they've adopted world to live in in late two I'm GonNa put you on the spot eighth has won National League signed to look out for the season. Oh and good question. I've unopposed wise stock. County I think the recruited very well and and got some solve experienced. Pros in the ranks now abandoned donate at that level and I think that probably take all the base in this year, and that's what my bet my pulse they save for the National League. For this weekend's games. I, look to the national. League. GonNa Political to Go Stop Paul Baltimore in Double Stop. Bought quite shot the plane wearing for women's struggled to adapt trailer to the stack up and quitting experienced. You say and I just think stock call yet the very short but the will you should get the business don't Actually Power Kinda think Baltimore always a solid home in the National League and dot going to always Matarrese Lot Baltin high floor and the national league table. and. I just think Baltimore there probably will have enough on then Soviet fell wise I think Paul Vale Southend looks are good back and for me you know southbound looking free fall this season and Yeah, think Wimbledon away at Milton Keynes potentially. Representative value around reluctance if all mark. Saltzman pressman essays on the road the Bait fleetwood aware look fairly solid I. don't I don't think we'll struggling relegation they season and my personal about Joe Pigott top goalscorer. Figure Price. So. I'm open to keep the momentum going on. Here, I think he's probably slightly over the price that I've met. Wimbledon saw to. Soften is probably a bit of value that and yeah and that's really for me this weekend guest off. Yeah M. K. Don Basically North City from twenty six Russell Monsters Monson is the Magic Cults Morris? Cameron Derive Libby Thompson I. Advocate Season Bobigny fancies across the divisions. Yeah to look at one in Germany on Friday I quite like God at Shell. shocker. Pretty Pool last season, and that continued to today's campaign as well. They seventeen, the shelter home on Friday still go coming up to the Bundesliga. This season of started the campaign really well, lay bit place Shell Kosovo yet to win only scored two goals in five games. So a really struggling in that final third stood of won all three of their games on the road as well as season, and there's a fair bit of value in them at go and get the victory this weekend and the other one I've looked is down in Guam. And Burton Albion Bets, I'll be bottom of the table, but they go up against Blackpool sides and got a bit of A. Why do support black hole and and a have to go toward Burton in this world unfortunately, that have drawn three of their last four. Black. Holes campaign has been absolutely shocking so far. There was lots of excitement in the build up to the term with Neil critchley charge. But discipline has been a major issue that been. Two sendings off in mid week in the same game the there was a sending off prior to that as well. I think it's four red cards so far this season now in nine games. And and it's just been a really poor start to the term. So lots of value there in Burton despite being bottom of table, they did draw against Peterborough last time out who performed strongly. So I, think they might be able to get something from that game and maybe well worth of interest and. Aker in the Midwest and all. The NYMAN rock type of the maps is will. Be and. If the which one this week who would it be? Jonathan will start with the. I I'M GONNA. Go a whole city away at Southend swindon. Looks Swindon to going one went back into league two. have been brilliantly season for me the faith, which is a lot them in the money during. mccown and they've experienced this lovely being that we don't custody previously he brought mallet world signing up from strengthened in midfield, and again he's got Liberty Kyle for probably should be playing in the championship in my opinion he saw good new full saying and I think with the fall the weather they played a Finkel city away after. To show up how the first team in the potty power enhancing nap tribal mock ups second place yet vile in league two against really struggling southend they've at least paid their tax bill this week seven. So the good news for south. End, fans that they've got team to watch the bad news for South advances they've got to watch and Things are going really bad for them at the moment that collected two points. From the nine matches the season I mean some of the results were. Understandable losing tune to Cheltenham Freenet a soul food. I mean, they got both be out there. But tra- mirrow really bad side this year and they were. Comprehensively beaten soon, buy them. Oldham it's struggling who's the ball newbie and buy them vile really. So of strong teen expect them to be around two promotion places Experience in there against the young south and saying couple of players used to play for south end this welfare Robinson and also Warwick. And another play from south policy you know when when they were better now that the really struggling. Reasonably close to the to the to them and the bad times of. A absolutely Seemed to have conceded coffee light goals as well at. Bobby you complete trouble this week. I'm going to go with that got suggestion for from Friday I think stood up fall too strong on paper for anything that Shell Corrigan, have to offer in this game that the fact that Alka Briley struggled for. That address leads me to think that that probably not going to find the back of the net and they swollen and stood outsor- away for me is too good to ignore. Also, I'd be looking at that win for the wayside in the Bundesliga. How Paul Bio and got the NAP trouble for this week that will be enhanced on the Patty power website over there should be easy enough to find brilliant show this week. Thanks thanks to Bob and thanks to Jonathan if you're following any of the advised. So having a bit of your in this week, please do remember to gamble responsibly only stake what you can afford. We'll be back next week for another football postcards but until then have a lovely week and we'll see we'll again very soon. Bye Bye.

Ep. 21: Champions League Recap + EPL Weekend Preview f/t Spurs vs City

"Yeah. We are back. Sam's army podcast. It is Friday Tober twenty six we just got done watching some bad ass Champions League games. I am. I can't say I'm excited because I'm certainly not about the results, but you know. A little bit of Champions League is better than been better than no Champions League. Even if your team gets their hearts broken once again. So is that we're going to how you doing Mike? You follow everybody clap could is that where we're going with. We're going with it's better to be in the Champions League. Then be not absolutely absolutely. All right. Roll little barb your way. That's okay. Yeah. Eleven wins in a row. We'll get to enjoy the Champions League a lot. Yes. It's well, I am joy Champions League Allott. And I'm starting to realize I enjoy it more when this win Spurs are not in it because then Spurs are not losing in Champions League. I it was a good week all the way through. Yeah. Even when you draw you lose the worst all right on Tuesday, and you will get going with the United event this game because anytime United please these days, it's pretty much the the biggest game around. There's a lot going on in the build up to this with Rinaldo coming back to Old Trafford his old stomping grounds. Not a lot from Rinaldo in the game. There wasn't a lot. Of offense period. It would ended up being one zero for you Ventas. They dominated the game and totally deserved to win United felt like a team. And this is not like a a one off thing. They just felt like a team that was trying not to lose try not to lose a lot. Maybe I should say rather than a team that was trying to win in this just it's become a theme with the United these days. I'm sure they're fans are just sick about it. Just it's weird. They have such good players. And they just look like they're not they've zero confidence. They looked like they're in like an an emotionally abusive relationship. And like everybody knows that they just need to like dump rip the band aid off and dump whoever it is that is emotionally abusing them and move on with their life. But they haven't done it. They can't do it. And so they're just soaking and being sad. Losing games? Would it be? Would it be fair to say the United fans aren't exactly very upset about this result? I mean. I definitely didn't get comments from United fans that made me think that they were just like despondent over Allie expected it I think they'll get out of the group easy, and they're good spot in the group. So that probably helps right? So I mean, I think in some weird twisted way Joe's as way of starting marshy rash for Motta was kind of running out a second attacking unit. So I don't think that they're very upset with what happened one goal allowed, and it was kind of fluky one well-taken finish, obviously. But you know, one of those goals like the second one for Napoli almost where it's just across in armless cross. And and they beat the second ball. I don't think that they headed calamities or anything like that. But United just they didn't have any teeth. Yeah. They I think they had one chance one serious chance the entire game one one that I remember it was when Paul Paul picked up loose ball beat one guy was piano and try to be Chesney with a curl or any did. But then of course, caught the post bounced off the post off Shas news head and out of bounds. Just I think maybe one inch in towards the goal. One's closer would have gone off the post illegal or on inch the other direction off Chesney head probably would've bounced back in the goal. So that's unfortunate. But I don't think that United will feel hard done by coming out having lost one zero. I think my big takeaways are Alexandra amazing player. He's a great leftback. I when he first came in the side, he was one of those relative unknowns. I think he's really grown to be one of Venice's, and as this champions that goes on you'll see him get more and more spotlight. And then the other one is is gone. It is in the car. Petition for one of the best pacemaking midfielders in the world. He's a little monster. I would call. He he really is. He really is a great player. So that's my take away their on the United side of the ball fog went about good other than that. I didn't really say anything. I liked Joe's as Joe's gonna live another day Everton on the weekend. We'll see our coast Marcial looked okay to. Yes. Played well recently. So good to see that Resper didn't do anything which was disappointing because I liked having them both on the field. We Kaku his normal. Like what the fuck are you doing? I had that I had that Rome Alanna to Chicago. He went to send that ball cross. And just crossfield pass was just like what in the fuck, man. It was awesome. The nearly as like breathtaking as the uselessness of it like what I'm doing. And then another subtle. Takeaway body language expert here Bernadette, she may be Rinaldo saying player. You see a lot of hugs. Let a buddy. They like each other. They like each other. So that'll be something four. That's the guy that will serve him that Asensio. You know, what I mean that's his like little guy that comes in for sixty five ninety just finds him every time we touch the ball. So I like that. Get all of the ball. He likes you. That'll be that one combination. I think that comes up big later in around Bernadette gay to the but that's a game to talk. I mean, not a great game on the pitch talk about to storylines or what they are with Marino. But you know, there was a lot of other plenty of great games. There were a lot of Greg games before we get to the great games though. Let's talk about another one that wasn't so great. It was rail Madrid coming up with two two one win over Victoria pills in so a win win and rail Madrid needed a win in the worst way. This was the opposite of impressive from rid. I mean, this is a club. We talked about it. They've been struggling in the league they hadn't scored a goal in. I think literally a month coming into the game and one in five so it's just not not good. Not good things. That's right. They they scored last week. So that was a horrible statement. So they score one goal that one is by this still crazy. So. Their fans have been I get a lot of comments from Real Madrid fans. Their fans are remarkably calm at the moment. Which I think speaks to the fact that the team has sort of a history of starting slow, you know, maybe struggling a little bit in the league. And then just being a slow build into the end of the season when they inevitably win Champions League. It's just. Every year. Wouldn't you become if he read the last page of the book in the beginning and get it? I get it. I understand I'm I respect. It's the same reason. You're never happy. I know how this story ends, absolutely. With a devastating loss by Spurs. Just like they know that it wins glorious Champions League trophy lifting. But like this year feels different. I gotta be honest. They're struggling are more systemic, and they lose anybody in the offseason. I can't remember I don't know was it. The main one of the best players ever played the game. I don't know. I've actually so this is going to be a little tangent. Two seconds promise. Sorry, guys don't out. I was like thinking about Real Madrid a lot. I was on the subway. And I was like we're not all those a player that wherever he goes you tell the entire team to find him on service. Find him at the ball because if you feed him for ninety he'll get you minimum two goals. Right. Like, the two goals will go in the net. If he's your primary attack every time instead of having spread the ball or kind of what buyers running into it's who is our guy where we going if you know where you're going players become a lot better because of a simple task and a guy like when although is just weird where you could just play him for ninety minutes and end up with a couple of goals in the scoreline. It's one of the weirdest things ever. So I imagine removing player like that not well makes the players feel like they're unlocked, and they have more creativity and stuff, but the productivity is not there. You can't match. What he does. It's one of the weirdest things. I spent a lot of time weirdly thinking about this. Well, yeah, it's going to take. Some time to you know, tactically, you've been laying for you've been sort of leaning on Rinaldo if else fails look for an although poaching goal for you. I mean right in that having that. Yeah. There's going to be a just a period of transition that they're learning curve a learning curve. Then it I mean, they've got guys the can theoretically score. I mean bail can score Benza allegedly can score a goal. But he's still bennema. And you know, these guys that. But the complete soccer say plays very well haven't even talked about Creuse and motor tune into its fourth. But like back in the world probably slash striker. Yeah. Him and Marcus Alonso Marceau Marcella, we're talking about don't you dare put them in the same conversation. Well, they do the same thing. Just one doesn't a lot better. So we'll see I just I have a bad feeling about rail. And you know, it's not his nothing to do with how stupid they made me. Look last year when I said, they weren't gonna win Jimmy, you're right. I mean, looking at some of these teams like Dortmund or even the teams plated in Paris, like if they get drawn with one of them at some it's no that's no way right now and one more loss low Pataki's, it just feels like one more loss, and he's gone like their coach is going to be gone. So just a lot of people upheaval, and we'll see if they spend a couple hundred million in January, maybe that changes things. But unless there until that, it's I don't know they got they got a lot of question marks dancer at the moment. So other games on Tuesday. We got often Heim Leone probably one of the most fun games of the entire match day, which I think we both called it. But you did I and he said called it. And was the first annual weekly biweekly however often remember to do this Mike nerd game of the week. And I'm dubbed it that. And it went into three three fucking thriller. Yeah. The two teams are just both young hungry. You know, they're not afraid to go forward. Maybe they're too stupid. Not to go forward. Who knows? I think whichever one so one of these teams is going to come out of the group with city, and whichever one does is going to be a sneaky tough team to get out yet you draw them. So keep an eye on Hoffa Heim Leone the other game from that. Same group. Shock targe at their asses kicked by city in Ukraine. So impressive win by city. Not the I won't be the last Sova the club. They they weren't a dicey situation. They lost that first game to Leone at home. And they were sitting looking at a draw on the road often Heim last time until the last minute when Silva save their ass. Yeah. Now, they got this. Impressive win know suddenly things are are looking up. It's like they're really good team. That knows what it takes to win which is actually a great segue into the first game. We're going to talk about on Wednesday, which involves a pretty good team. That knows absolutely nothing about what it takes win four. We get to that game. I'm not going to name any names yet before we get to that game. Though, we got a quick address. So let's jump right into it. So guys fall is here as switch out your wardrobe.

Well, we'll we'll if you wanna think about the goals in the Champions League while you're having sex order. Tommy John's women's underwear there, you you know, Champions League is a good fluffer to get you going. And then like. You know, if you need to keep going and rather than like, you know, my normal finish in team minutes thing than you just gotta think about Tottenham. So let's good segue. Right to think about the rep holding up before the ficials board with like three more minutes. Just three more minutes. Let's ask him quite a lot there. Also before you transition out by Munich back on pace to win the Champions League back on pace two zero win in Athens. And we're gonna say they're back in pay. Unbiased opinions only I I'm telling you, I'm gonna win this bet and you're going gonna fucking. Respect your optimism. Can't say agree. So we'll start with. With the Todd PSV game in cheese backyard. So this is a strange game Spurs could should have won by. Goals. And yet they didn't because it was a must win game and Spurs record in must win games is roughly zero and five hundred million at this point. They lost silly mistakes are absolutely killing this just absolutely killing this team. I it was Toby elder Burell given ball away to Chucky Lozano who on the default in don't even say that I have been saying Chucky Lozano was gonna score in this game for weeks. And it was like ten minutes into the game and the minute he was through. I was like, oh, he got caught. And then that makes to hang that thing flashing right over lorries that hung in the air for forty second. And this was after Tom had like ninety percent possession. And it was like it just it made no sense. And yet the fact that Spurs give up a goal after ninety percent possession. Just made all the sense in the fucking world knows. It was was on when I was just sitting there. How of course, of course. And then so that was the first mistake big mistake by I mean that was the biggest mistake of the game. I Toby well, arguably as things so we'll we'll speed forward here. A number of minutes. Tottenham is now scored two goals. According to the scoreboard three goals. According to anybody with a brain, and is because one was ruled off off sides just a ridiculously awful call. Would you disagree with that those aback all horrible call came as obviously off sides in offside position. Sure will wear Soham. I right now and I'm not backing the plight nowhere near being involved at the place, just awful. And on the on the first Spurs goal. I just wanna call out how poor the defending was by Angelino this like left-footed former city reject that. I didn't even know existed that like kind of watch them the whole game because more was kinda running rampant over there. Not no more with central. It was over on the right? Some on the left Lemoine later. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. It was Lamar. Angelina was just poor. And he went on fifty fifty ball with trickier. And it was just just bad. And I was like I was like this is that was just terrible like that is a poor showing of defending. So I thought that was fortunate but also more reflection and Spurs were up to two one, according to scoreboard, three to one in my mind and then. So speak is silly mistakes. It wasn't a silly mistake. But Christian Erickson who was probably the best player on the field and breath of fresh air for Tottenham who just amazing how much better the team was with with him out there. But to be fair. He did make mistake the ball away cheaply in the middle of the field and two seconds later. It was it was literally maybe half a second later, Chucky Lozano, again, I wouldn't know I don't know if you wanna call him in on goal, but he had a little bit of a maybe a half step on on Sanchez. And Toby was coming over from the other side. I think that they would have Toby especially caught him, and he would have had, you know. But we will never know because. For not the first time not the second time. Third time to just I don't know just gopher run in the middle of fucking. Oh, you killed me with that. We'll never know. Because here comes you go. I mean. I don't know. What is doing? He's like this trigger coming off his line days. You did against Barcelona to like, what are you doing? Man. You're not a sweeper yours. You're just to keep her. Favorite player in the world right now. Nobody it. Nobody's makes me happier. Like consistently makes me happier than you. Go Reese, and I am I talking about my personal life as well. I think I think nobody in the world makes me smile or laugh harder and more genuinely than watching Hugh Laurie's play soccer. I've watched Logan who is big time editor video guy at barstool out on the five last week when he's our Hugo come through that red card. I saw him whip is headphones out of his laptop throw them on the ground. Then he was just watching on his computer at work. So like nobody was like around him. And I just tell them ripta's headphones out of his lab. Nothing's made me happier about than this guy. He's going. He's out for lunch. Like all the time. He he didn't used to do this. I don't know what happened like did the from that up in the France. You know, I wasn't going to say like get into his head. And now he's like, but he's even done that in this friendly again, I don't know why or member this friendly against Sweden like two years ago. He is just one of those goals that we've all played with them makes us patacula play. But sometimes you just like what the fuck are you doing like? Where where are you going Lona one? That's still shot of him at the corner of the eighteen with like five guys in the box. Like you do in man he ruined the game was over. Long. It was done war. It was again like they even at two one. Even without the what if earlier that game was. Oh, yeah. I mean, the only thing you can say that lorries did. Right. Was he fucked up so bad that he came out far enough that he didn't take Lozano down in the box. That's like the only thing to say like, well, don't go. I'd start form. I mean. Yeah, I'm not a big fan of orm of honest euro saying that as an arsenal fan. So I'll take them. I think form is. I'm an start them. Both play Larissa sweeper. Well, he'll be out for a little bit here. He'll be taking rest thing about his life for a couple of games. And if I will say this about Spurs game. So from a performance standpoint, it was the best performance they've had in a long time. So we got that going for us, which is nice playing PSV Eindhoven. He's not there. No there. They're no Karabeg fella. And I'd never mentioned care bag. But you've made me angry. So I decided to go there don't lash out. I only lashed out. We've been having these see plus performance, maybe see minus performances from time. And of course, they've ended up winning the games. And of course, now we come out with maybe like a B, plus a minus, and we pretty much lose to two. So that was unfortunately, do that that's Hugo coming charging at me right now in the middle of this podcast recording. Can you go? I still love him. I can't I can't quit. Do I still love him? I do I have to ask why big saves for us. You know, dammit to stand if booking line, but like one of those dog collars on them. If you comes out. Six should give believe imagine watching Hugo charge. I'm just getting yanked in there. I'm okay with that. Good. You know, shot stopper. He gets up. He's like oh shit. No shock collar. Let's move on. I'm done with that shit. I've convinced myself, by the way that Tottenham are going to. So they have they have PSV inner at home in the next two games, which are basically like for sure wins. I've convinced myself of this. Can then we can pull out like a famous draw at our Celona who won't have anything to play for in in the last matchday love e points. And maybe. Maybe will like somehow sneak into the next. I don't think it's gonna happen. So you haven't decided you want fourth yet know that's the problems that I absolutely want four. I want second or fourth. I don't want right. And you have to pick right now. Yeah. You have to lose that game to PSV. If yet you have to pick right now. I'm an optimist internal so I used to have to be a Spurs fan. So yes, I'm still going for second. I gotta I gotta take credit where to do to me when I said that Cain is one Ericsson serving the ball from anywhere away from looking like he's back on track. But I will say other than that goal. He'd he looked half step off. There were so many chances to one that he had score. There was one to two at the end to to we enough to you any wasn't quick e wasn't quick enough to turn on the guy. He had the chance like know, those balls that are bouncing the informed guy, just lashes at first and gets through like canes and not there. He's not right. I've been saying for. Yeah. But now I just have to bring it up every week because it still blows my mind to see it's frustrating. It's frustrating. It is. But I did deliver just fucking a peach for that goal. I would say, well, we'll get to the best assist or that's past the day. It was actually Luis Suarez. Who paul? Yeah. Dined refused. You think it was? The outside of the foot to just nasty. We'll get to that. So we'll start with before getting that will go to Napoli. Fun game. Entertaining game. Yes. G fans probably weren't too excited about it. They were pretty lucky the French for inside was pretty lucky to sneak out with with a point which was possibly because of that late goal from de Maria, which was a beautiful shot. You said at the time he thought it was a spin a headed chance to save. It do you do you take a replay? Or have you seen replied east? I feel that way I've seen it. And it's that last few where it kinda doesn't hit the side side ending kinda hits. Like, I dunno. It's a great shot. But I actually know what forget where it even hits on the goal of the fact that spin was close makes me think that a better goalie would have had it. Does that make any sense? Like, I know that he's. You just assuming that his perhaps his position was little off. Perhaps he just just doing that. Every. As a shot stopper in aging shot stopper. I think that he does he's he's got a mazing skills like a communicator, and as a distributor and as an intelligent guy that comes off his line. But as a shot stopper. It's he's notably week. I'm not discrediting the goal. I don't wanna be that guy. Who hated this goal? It's fucking dumb. But like this back that spin got so close made me think that Napoli is like a like even who Louise right save that ball problem. I mean, Laurie's is a great shot stopper. So say got that closure. Don't think Laurie's tip that wide. I don't know this watching the chef from de Maria it's tough to tell maybe he was if he was position wrong. Then I guess I had this. This argument that might have just been something in the moment. But I just thought that was close somebody might have saved it. Greg shop, I do Maria. And it was it was very very on time time for save save PS cheese bacon. So that ended that brought them level to to. That's how it ended a lot of the talk after the game. Was what's wrong with PS? Gee, I really think the bigger talking point is dang like Napoli are like pretty legit. And I need a little bit more credit. You have to give that credit there. Yeah. They have a great game by any means. But I would say about PS g Martinez. Munay combat pay. And then like that that's not that they're playing against Napoli in Liverpool here, right? Like, those are some of the most dynamic difficult to Mark incredibly skilful front threes around there. And also I wanted to punch whoever was commentating that game for calling the Napoli front three diminutive. Like, I get it that they're short. But that words sucks. This is a trigger word for you menu. Tive mid I would have been pissed if I like if somebody told me, I was diminutive fuck you. But like, I think the PS jeans back four it just isn't like world class, and I guess the teams are playing have borderline world glass threes here. So that's my opinion. I don't think there's anything wrong with them. They're scoring goals in the loss to Liverpool. They scored two goals and in this game this court jewels. That's not a problem. No. But watch their their form. Just looks like the the Imbaba Cavani. Name are that clearly like, I don't know if it gets better than that as a threesome Napoli. His Liverpool is great threesome this. This group is fucking chock full of incredible triumvirate guys like neymar and Imbaba are like need to Rome players where they need to drip, deep if they're not getting involved because they wanna get touched on the ball and Burnett in Mounier not as good of overlapping outside backs as Bs g needs. They just don't look fluid at the moment. They don't have a lot of with like with which is weird say about a team like that. But they just they just don't look fully polished yet. Thank they'll get there. But they're still scoring. Yeah. They're good team there in tough group. So the questions of will get out of the group of and it's not like the questions are coming out of nowhere Napoli won't be as g somebody's not getting out of that group at be very upset. If PS she dropped out of your open, then it was an Emory against PS g situation. I'd be very upset. That would be pretty interesting. I still think Napoli will somehow not go through they'll end up in Europe. But that would suck to whoever's in Europe from this group is yeah, that's not somebody wanna you personally, Mike arsenal. Let's not somebody you want. What do you mean? You too. Good point shots fired to Shay, but not getting enough credit here. You know, they've lost her junior. Sorry. And they seem not lost a gloss. The step. You know, it's it's impressive stuff. And HAMAs UCAR fucking gorgeous and injuries. Martin's up top. I think enchilada probably a lot of credit. I mean, he just wherever he goes. He he he wins. What a fun group for him to have. Yeah. That's a good good situation. So this group is going to be real interesting. Watch coming down the stretch, the telling you earlier to side note. Callahan is a five star skill. Textures? Yeah, he could play like he's he's a fun guy to watch one of those guys that just doesn't get talked about enough because he's over in Italy. And we're also saying Italy is a lot of fun this year for sure for sure with with UVA and enter and. Napoli roma. Lots yo I mean, that's you're and maybe at least has the story lines to Qatar ketosis not. But yeah, just I I'm a big big fan of Italy. Right. While other game in the group. It's not even really worth mentioning but Liverpool just took a watery shit all over red stars face four zero just not even it was never a game. What what do you think they're a little bit of their Mojo, though? So so good. What the fuck is solid doing. He scored didn't he twice? But like I am not watching and not seeing anything at he's he he's not in the same. You know? He's just not mine everywhere. I'm things on his head. And it's just weirding me out. But that game was not even close. It's a lot of hair. Yeah. The well. We'll see if Redstar some official came out with a twenty million dollar bet on them to lose by four. Wouldn't have been a smart bet to just bet two zero so red star scores exactly zero. Yeah. There is a good one. There's a good one. Keep look at look into that one INTERPOL. The the other games were. There are a lot of great games on Wednesday. I know and Dorman just walked all over let it go. You never see that. You'd never see dig Diego semi team. Just get you know, run off the field and they got run off the field. I mean they lost zero in this game. Dorman were absolutely flying around and lyrical remaking just basic mistakes at the back. I don't know who it was. But somebody played a ball right into the middle of the field at the at their own eighteen inches gave it to dormant. I think that was the league. Yes. It was. We believe Louis, which is very flea. Louise thing to do. But. I love Rafael Guerrero. He's one of my guys. In my my little clique of guys one of them is not Raphael. Guerreiro liked him for a long time. Terminus tough. I've always thought he was going to be a good leftback. But apparently, he's found a better spot. Doormen are fucking blast. A lot of fun to watch. I mean, they're not just not just Alkaser. They're not just you know, politic new Vissel was the right kind of engine room for just a pacey fast direct team. He was he was so disappointing in the World Cup for me. Yeah. He's such a good player. And then he and then he's come out and played really well for them. Yeah. It's a little team. Like, you may have to throw them into the small very small Kabbal of teams that actually could win this. Can you imagine if Jaden Sancho his age becomes an integral part of team that wins champions? I mean, I think. Jesus be Lady Jane's. He's before. He goes on loan in January that. Doormen team. I'll tell you one thing Paka was great Guerrero's great ballistic Sancho, and they all look like they're at that stage in their career where they're like. All right. I gotta do this now and everyone just looks hungry. Biron is shitting their pants in the Bundesliga. I'll tell you that I will agree with you there. And also, let it go. We talked about this those jersey stink. Now there I don't know if they played worse than they looked looked worse than they play. But they're both awful, those berry don't don't change those his beautiful red and white stripes. I mean, that's just don't don't fuck with with something. I kind of like that. I'm not let go fail to get out of the group last year. Well wouldn't. When's prize me? Here things have happened. And also, they they are they do not look I mean, they didn't this week at least, but they did not side last last one will will mention quickly so Barcelona two zero inter game turn out pretty much. Exactly how I would have thought it was going to go. You know, Barcelona is playing without probably the best player in the world at the moment messy with his with his broken arm. So he looks likely out of sync going forward which no surprise there. Really? Yep. It's tough to suddenly be without the the best guy on your team slash best player in the world and not never miss a beat. But the inner just didn't have enough offensive firepower to really trouble them barsalou. Look in control the game from start to finish. Cardi is carrying inter offensively in league, and he just can't do everything himself. So he is so good. He is good. But not good enough for to carry inner to beat Barcelona Camp Nou nobody's going to get him out of the group. He might he might. So we'll wrap things up for Champions League here with a we'll do a top five because my list was so outdated and Evan made me look dumb. Here's here's my my was a little outdated as well. We'll update it here. So we're going to say the top five teams you would not want to play in Champions League right now. You wanna take a first crack at it. No. Let's go snake draft who your number one? It was the last TV wanna play right now city. Yeah. The best team in the in the world, probably. Yeah. They lost a Leone still. You know, what I'm going to go out there and say right now, I wouldn't play wanna play you bet this or you've met this. Yep. Yeah. That's not a bad one. I'm not sure. And this is definitely going out on a limb. I'm not sure I'd have you in my top five weeks. So this is going to be some controversy already. So you would wanna let up against you, a it. There's five teams you'd wanna play before you wanna play Ventas right now. And I'm just talking you as in blank not him. I think so I think so and there's definitely an argument made against one of mine, so okay, go number. There's a couple of you can make an argument is anybody actually to be honest 'cause you're number. Yes. That is how that is. Why people have jobs? What is the number two? So. I just have them written down from. I don't know. If I I don't know if I have a one two three four five I haven't written down. I'm going to give you my five. How about that? Okay. Let's do that city Liverpool. Dortmund Napoli PS g. No, Barscelona Nobar Celona. No. You've at this. No, you vent is no Byron no rail. Okay. So these are unnumbered that's bullshit rank. I probably go city PS g. God. Liverpool. Dorman appleaday. Six. Okay. Five teams. I wouldn't wanna play against right now. Just as a neutral event. This is one second team is city. My third team is Barcelona. My fourth team is still PS g and I would say my fifteen. Sporting Lisbon, no odd that already say dormant. Shit. I dunno. Count out. Did you vent this city? PS G though, I said dormant dorm in Barcelona. Yeah. Dortmund's fifth. I mean, if you're trying to this down that I hope you're writing in pencil. Doormen in Barcelona I left out, and you know, you can make an argument for them. Clearly, let you vent this. I did I did they beat United one zero. You gotta give United by more than one goal for me to think you're telling the top teams in the world. You're telling me in a game where you already have the group you you already have the group owned you have to go to Old Trafford end win by several goals. I think you're crazy against this United team -solutely. I think you're crazy. I think champions international in a certain way, where there's not a lot of scouting in prep, and it's just like best eleven like, that's why still think buyer Munich's win the fucking Champions League is because I think when you up best eleven respect Levin Levin in a ninety minute vacuums. That's why teams like reality champions. It's a lot like international play where it's just not a lot of scouting in a vacuum ninety minutes. Let's go. Did you not have Byron in your five right now? I didn't I didn't. But that's teams. I wanna play right now. I think my guys will come along later. This comes in waves. It comes in waves. And I said, but the beginning of the year when I made the pick. This is one of those years where like nobody's gonna grab it by the throat, and I think the team most matured most themselves is probably their city or buyer. I think buyers will be the what it takes. Ball. Just get on the ballsy. Yeah. Well, I can make I'm making argument. I'll fight anybody else fight. All you guys on Twitter, come at me. So there's there's a Champions League review. Now it is time to jump into the weekend. Head and there are some good games. So let's just get balls deep in here. So let's let's start with the best game of the weekend in the which is actually not on the weekend. It is one day, and it is Spurs hosting city. Big band city come into Wimbley. You know, I don't say what this Spurs have gotten their acid handed them by city repeatedly in recent years. And you know, it's not like the so the team that it's had asked handed to by city last year that team is better than Spurs are right now. So you know, just being objective. I have a hard time trying to figure out how they could possibly win this game. Could they maybe finagle a draw? Maybe he, but you know, hair canes one hundred percent as we've talked about. I don't know the deli allie's playing if he was in there that would be a big big boost Ericsson clearly makes the team a lot better. So if they had Ericsson and deli in midfield that would be a big step in the right direction. But I just I'm just not terribly optimistic about this one. I mean, this is Chuckie Lozano play. He'll be playing in the back of Toby elder Vero mind for. All right. I'm gonna just come out there and say at this game, you'll know in the first twenty like if Tottenham is battering, and it turns into kind of you can slug it up if you could. If you could argue this thing up, I fucking hope Harry winks isn't starting. But if you ugly this thing up, and you make it into like. If you don't make them if you're not chasing shadows early. You'll be able to tell early if you're chasing shadows. And if that's the case this thing could be four five that was the problem. That's what we did last time. And we were just chasing him everywhere. And I think you'll know I I really do. I think that there's a chance at Tottenham at home in the brand new stadium that you go at home, right? That brand new stadium. You just built. That's that's amazing lovely Champions League, baby. Okay. Great. You'll know right away. If you guys are in this game or not, and if you are I could see it being a very like one to one I'd say the exact goals that probably bet. Probably about two or three. I'd bet. Three goals. Exactly. Because you're gonna lose three nethon. It'll be two one one one whatever. So I'd say exactly through. That's my bet and city you'll know really early. I'll tell you. Yeah. I'm just gonna leave it. I'm not optimistic. And if you guys drop this game. Say goodbye to arsenal. You'll never see him again. I've a lot more optimistic about that. That. So next game. We're not we're not to the arsenal. Game point yet. We will next with the what I would say the second most compelling game. And of course, United is involved because the, you know, anything they play in these days is most watched TV. So this is a game with massive massive massive Europa league, rain -plication 's with United hosting Everton. Everton has found some form lately. But this is a this is a step up even United his step up from the competition. They've been they've been beating. And for United. This is a pretty big step down. So that they've been. More or less. They've been dominated possession allies by two teams in a row. But that was Chelsea new Everton is not going to bring that that sort of you know, fight in the mid field. The way the way that those teams have and I like how Anthony Marcial has been playing Paul Pablo has been a little hit miss obviously shut he shut off on that goal against Chelsea. But he played okay against Chelsea. Anyway, probably better. You've actually. So this weird to say, but I think that. I think that United might win this by multiple goals. The fact I'm saying they're going to score multiple goals is probably a going out on a limb. But the fact they in my multiples, that's that's definitely going on. I think I think that you know, they've they've been playing teams like Chelsea new. I think Everton while they've been playing better. I just don't think are on the same. You know? You know, quite level anywhere near I think Bernardo has the potential to skin anybody on that right side. Well, I mean we're talking about. Not a great defense. Obviously. Right. So I I have to do an apology. Joe Joe underscore Dang's eleven Andre Gomez. Not preferred dominant Calvert Lewin because one is the striker, and what is central midfielder. I want explain to those of you didn't have the balls at the at me. I was talking about how they sports the formation amid that substitution. They could play with all the time. But they choose to play with Gomez anyways, moving on because I like to never be wrong. I feel bad whenever whenever I slight your team because I don't have I do watch almost everything but Everton whenever they get not watch never telephone. I will say this game is going to be like they can't they need to take three or he's gone. This might be the one and always say it all the time. But imagine they come in. And there's too early goals and they like scrap one, but don't get the second. And they lose two one. He's newcastle. But just without the last two goals. Yes. Like, literally exactly I could see it playing like that. 'cause Everton are good like Everton could score early goals Old Trafford. If the chances are they're Man United comes out and gets a little bit too big for the bridges drizzle. Like play around the stretch a little ever taken score goals. So this could be the one from oh, I will predict another draw. Unfortunately, that's a sad. That thing pick. I two was a good number. But yeah, that's why I'm going that. I could see it being just a hectic affair. Yeah. Could be fun with the United. Anytime could be game is like hectic that's a step up from a normal hectic or a normally United type performance, I would say so I did a poor job of explaining it. But Everton so they've played they've they've been playing a little bit better. But they haven't played anybody anywhere. They haven't played very good opposition this year and the one time they did step up they played arsenal. And they look like shit to me honest. So I I who can blame him right? So I'm going to go with United three two one. The creek. I'm going crazy. I'm getting crazy with that one. That was Joe from Twitter's prediction the other way forever to. Yeah. That's ballsy. That would definitely mean Josie out, which would be a nightmare. So let I really hope I really hope he's not. He's not right on that one next move. Is it weird that I'm starting to think that he's way more secure them? We're giving him credit for Josie. Yeah. No. I weirdly feel like he's way more secure than I think I hope so I really I'm starting to think I'm starting to think that the three championship that three title finger at Chelsea coupled with the way. Sorry apologize. Sorry said sorry, I will say I think he's got longer than we think and he'll probably fire this week. But I think he's a lot more come. I think he's more comfortable the way. No God God willing God willing. It would be a sad said day magin they fucking sold pug. These that'd be. January. I I know I know. So I will go to Fulham Fulham hosting Bournemouth. So mortal lock production of the weekend is goals goals and more goals in this one. I'm usually huge fan of over under bets and soccer anybody's asked me on Twitter can attest to this just like an early goal or early red card. Just totally changes the dynamic changes the game. And so I'm just not a really a big fan of of that. Bama big. I'm a big time live better. Well, well, so that. Yeah. That could Becca work. Well, if I'm watching a game, I know exactly how it's gonna add. Well, you I'll text you five fifteen minutes in this one in greet me. I'll answer. It's funny that I hate the over under bets because the only time that big at ever has me for like betting advice is every time Champions League comes on. He'll be like in the morning and be like which games are going to have a lot of goals. That's the only thing really. Are you close with the red line guys? Yeah. I mean, we're we're we're best internet buddies. That's that's funny. I just started getting into when they joined the network, and I wait there. I work. I work. I work a lot with them now. And Trump Akaroa is on this kick for this tropical shirt company that sponsored as big time fan of Java Carl Dave so no free ads. But I guess we can do this one. So, yeah, if you if you like Chicago sports or just, you know, funny. Dudes, Redline radio is is that the name of the podcast. Yes. It is Red Eye Radio. Always cross block. Here's a free cross. Plug for you, read light. There you go. Yeah. Those guys are all gray. I see them out every now and again there. Pretty funny. You Chicago guys are pretty fun. Yes. And that cast is all it's like, it's like. It's like it's like it smells tastes of Chicago. They had Brian Urlacher last week. And they asked him about his hair. Doesn't get more than that should know enough to wanna be super curious about his hair. Most Chicago thing ever, well, so full and Bournemouth his will put a little bow on this. So Fulham's given up twenty five goals this season. So say like goals goals goals? They've twenty five twenty game. Anybody? And they're coming up against born of who scored a Fairmont two goals, and they're getting Ryan Frazier back the little Scottish spark plug even he's in my little group to it's Ryan Frazier's little that group of like my obsessively weird favorite players diminutive players diminutive. Yeah. It's like right now. Yeah, it's insignia Guerrero and Ryan Frazier so far that I've revealed publicly. I have plenty more humid like diminutive players but Frazier Ryan for years is I love guys that just get the ball. And just go out if you're if you're an outside back the last guy you wanna play every week is Ryan tracer. He's tough. He makes you work every single minute to and he's back so Fulham, this is gonna be a tough one. I think they're going to probably put push Ryan says in your own back into defence, which might shore up a little bit. And they certainly need help. I'm going to go out on a limb. Again, I feel like I'm doing nothing but going out on this week. I think like a to draw took a one. So that'll be a fun game to watch though. So if you think they were gonna go to one to the board with all, right? Yeah. Yeah. See that happening or is better than we're giving him credit for at least at the beginning of the season. Always the games. I think goals will be that. They don't right. I I know all about that. My jinx records. I think. Because when it makes sense, they're both talk about it before the game. Whether like this watch out for their this. And then they both play too conservative. They feel each other out. And then there's usually like thirty minutes of actually fun. And then unless you're like Leona often, I'm in yours off young and stupid like well, it's always unruly goal. There's an early goal in any game. It's just like all right throw this sheets of paper over your shoulder. Literally throw them over like, all right? Let's fuck. And and that's that's when it's the best. It's true unless United's involved always we got God damnit another so Burnley is hosting Chelsea this Ministro small upset alert. Again, I agree with you Chelsea off Spurs game. It was at home, and they were able to rest his ARD. So those are those are good things but going to more where at least in years past opponents of head difficulties. I don't know. Burlington pulling upset in this one Chelsea's midfield is just so good. Just so damn good. But if they get an early goal, maybe they could pull an upset, you know, given how sorry is committed to this phone two zero striker setup that he's going with I go with one one draw in this one I can see draw. I also think has are gonna get fouled fifteen times coned off the the United game where they just hack the shit out of him. I then now. And the first one he's playing as Burnley at home like actor of more, that's tough. And this is one of those games at Daito always gets a number from. So we'll see I mean, not this is the one I'm not watching. I'll tell you that much. It's gonna be interesting. It's gonna be a boring one man, you're gonna see twenty one present possession from Burnley in like, if it's if it's gonna be it's gonna be nasty. Yes. So it's early Sunday turned into its turn into like can you do it on a Sunday morning at turf moor? Yeah. Stokes doing whatever. They're doing. It's turned into like. Yeah. But can you do it on a on a early morning game at turf moor? We shall see. It'll be interesting to see if how his art is treated in this one. So the other game that is played at the same time on Sundays palace hosting arsenal. I'm sure you have a lot of a lot of things to say the coming off eleven wins. I'm gonna give you give your boys a little bit of credit. So funny. You said that what the same tone is like they're coming off a win at the weekend. It's like they're coming off eleven wins. No big deal. Levin wins. Please give me credit. And more honestly more impressive than eleven wins. That are coming off of a shutout import Aghil in a European competition. I know sporting is not playing that great this season, but Portugal and get clean sheet and your name is arsenal. And you have defenders you have like that is impressive. I was I'll also say we played shock leftback for ninety. And it's not just that nobody has won domestic or like international in the sporting stadium in thirteen months last one to do it was Barcelona. Maybe maybe maybe I am just found were Jukka needs to shut up now. So. It's gonna be interesting for you to arsenal nerds. And if you do listen because I'm an arsenal fan. I appreciate it. But I'll give you a little bit of a thing here last time like our best formation with Oziel playing. How Oziel is is the four two three one with him floating as a ten last time we were on the road at Fulham. We played a four two two two with a will be Muktar, Ian wide and then two strikers, which the neither central mid has the freedom to kind of do what attend does. So I'm really we scored five goals, obviously. But then last game he'll scored as as like enemies goal today. They lined up in a four to three one again. But with like, no Oziel, and Chuck I left bag was clearly international games. You can throw that out. If you look at the last two games, I'm very very curious for that one hour before the game announcement to see what this team is gonna look like I think they'd probably gonna go with one striker ozo- at the ten, and then you ever weird conversation of who do you start lock at or a balmy because. Because one of them has to play central in. They're both playing while centrally bombings clearly not playing as well on the left. So this good problems. But the but the thing about a new manager it's for so long. I've just been able to know what vendors gonna say and what he's gonna do. And for the first time in a while. I do not know how we're going to line up in this game. And it's because palace is a tough place to go like the Ha's gonna probably have a good time against whether it's mon- round Beller and probably Socrates, and I'd say maybe holding probably Musavi staffy soccer Addis, but Zayas probably going to get a goal. They're probably going to get a goal. So he needs to get this election top, right? And with Oziel playing as he does. I think we go one striker Lakas at I think bombing sits. And then I think he comes in in the last thirty minutes, but I don't know for the first time in a while. I really don't know. And that's exciting for an arsenal fan. I know that's a long rant but Saturday's Ursel nerd out. Yeah. But like, it's a real. For the first time. I'm actually revealing this is how deeply like when ours cast the pod comes out every Monday and Thursday Friday. I am down. Like, I am there. And I listen to this stuff I consume it. I really love a hersal. So I don't know how we're gonna start this game. But I'm very excited to see it. And you know for the first two games. He started fucking doozy. And I had no idea. What's coming? So I'm excited to see what he does. I trust Emory. I Don I were texting today about how good this feels right now. It's a weird feeling, but it feels good. The future looks bright hopefully bottle it 'cause you're gonna need it in a few weeks. I know, but he's Nelson's killing it like he's best friends Jaden Sancho Abomey best friends than Bella. So I mean, I feel good about everything about this club. And for the first time in a while. I am both optimistic about the present the future. And I am curious every single week about what this election's going to be. And that's exciting. That's fun. So maybe she got a new manager something. Out. More importantly if you gun that arsenal tattoo yet. Yes. I have it scheduled. I'm moving in a week. So once I get my new apartment, I have an appointment on the eighth of October. And I'm gonna get national tattoo. I will accept submissions. I'm probably gonna go with a poorly arsenal the account on Twitter when a his designs, but if not I will accept submissions. So you don't think that arsenal? There's any way they lose this even with the husker angle. I think they could draw the scam. I think they don't think they will. No, I don't think we wouldn't scam. Next Liverpool hosting Cardiff. I mean card is coming off their their first one of the season. So credit to them on that. I'm sure they're probably still celebrating that. So I mean at Anfield, I mean this smells like an asshole, ping. Yeah. It does it does this feels like a big win. I need to I need Salata. Celebrate a fucking goal before. I feel good. So is that is that your problem with his goals? He isn't he hasn't been celebrating quite an watch watch the celebrations. It's just like every like, no, I mean. He almost looked like he had played for Redstar Balgrade today. He had red star winning by three one though he. It. It looked like he was returning to a stadium. He used to play in like, it was he's not been the most, you know, he didn't board. Celebrate celebrator has he did he did more than this. And it's just weirding me out. And I think that they're incredible. I think they're informant. I think they're like probably I still think they're one of like they're the top two, but they can push for the best merely at some point. If they click, but I I wanna see him. Just fuck like, you know, a guy who doesn't celebrate. Fuck. No. I wanna see him, and then frustrated emotion and then fuck like, I just wanna see him. Celebrate. Also. I've had a few Chardonnays one of it for work on the phrasing of that later. But yeah, I understand what you're saying. Either way. I think Liverpool walk all over Cardiff in this one hundred hundred field. Visit watt furred. What is it? Tough team. Depend down this. Yeah. This game can be ugly. I don't know the only thing that makes me nervous about you know, if I were to bet on what is just just so predictable. You know, they sneak out wins against Spurs. Then they have their asses handed to them by born Muth than they dominate wolves essentially on the road. I don't know. It's just a tough team hundred feels not very scary. So if I was put a gun to my head, which is the only way but on this game, probably go on Wofford, but I wouldn't bet on this game with your money to be Aaron Moi's in the click of guys as well. Diminutive? He's not diminutive. He'd probably be my six. The Australian Michael Bradley. I think this game is going to be very low score. I think Wofford is not they played pretty against pretty. But I think that they play a league ugly. Hundred field is not going to be pretty. Yeah. So so I think I'm going here. I'd go the under one zero watt. I I could see that happening. I'm just gonna go under two if the line is two and a half that stealing money in this game. Leicester host West Ham in a game that feels like two teams just destined for mid table mediocrity. Luxuriance spring vacations. You know? Scheduled in probably now February. Yeah. Yeah. So I'm just going to go with an ugly. Drawl just seems like right for these two teams. I've been saying I'm sticking with it. The West Ham is moving in the right direction, which is up. But that's because they started. They definitely started from the bottom. And now they're here, which is near the bottom but slightly above it. And I think they're trending towards the middle which is way end up, and you know, one point in this would be a likely result. This does scream tight. This does scream draw doesn't it? I think West Ham wins this game. Just because I think are not which inflict banner, we're both so bad. And they're so wildly inconsistent. That they're going to be great. That's my only thought they are Wilding system that is and you, and you know, they were bad so true. It'd be interesting game west. He was interesting team intercede how west I look I rather watch them Hannah ten times in either Manchester team at the moment. Just city just is dominant. And. City has eighty percent of the ball wins three one and fucking United is a watching a train wreck which gets old eventually not for me. I'm every night you game. I've watched like every minute of every team Tottenham. I've watched every minute of every game. And I will say how you feel about United is one tenth of how I feel about Hugo lorries. He's compelling. Compelling is the best word like if you were like trickier dynamic for Tongan, solid Alda wild sporadic Lewis compelling. Drunk. Compelling. Oh, I'm not gonna lie. I love him. Compelling is the best word rounding EPL here. We got Brighton hosting wolves. This feels like about back game for wolves. They sorta got. Their butts kicked by watt for last week. I don't know if I'm not I'm still not sure if they laid an egg or what for just really put it on them. But you know in Brighton are coming off of successive one zero wins and are a tough team at home. So this is no gimme. Not my mortal lock, but I'm still going to go with wolves to say win by two zero. Okay. I like that. Wolves are. So they are still promoted. I think we treat them in our predictions in our week-to-week because we love them in a different sense. I think last week was a come down Jesus where it's like, oh what I Ben here for like four or five years. Now feels like I don't know if it's been three or four whatever. But what like, oh, we have Premier League players like there are some holes in the in the wolves defense. I don't think I don't think the back four is any good. The midfield is the midfield is fantastic. And I liked the front three. But like Jimenez is still like a seven goal per season. Striker in primarily. And they re Patrizio in the back who's a fucking really good keeper. Yeah. And and that's why I think that they do credit, right? Like, so the fact that you're pointing out good positions when I'm exploiting bad is like is just because I think that they are that right? They have really good talent. But they like our newly promoted team. So these away games to other scrappy low teams are where I think that we're gonna learn about wolves. So I will say that I am optimistic enough in the beauty of the game to want wolves to win and I will call them to win. But I think this is gonna be gross like I hope that they're really good. They show us what they are. But there is a there is a chance that wolves are still getting their feet under them. Still there still freshman or still frame? They're really they're really really good freshman. But if you played eleven freshman, they will win some games, they will make you wanna pull their hair out. Sometimes I'm sticking with two zero wolves last game Southampton hosting winless Newcastle. So Newcastle and Huddersfield or the two winless teams Huddersfield is I think we both said and probably who they play this week. They play what furred. So that's gonna be tough game. Newcastle has a little bit easier game on the road at Southampton. You think they get their first w here you go. I I have to I need you first year. I didn't know what you're doing with this game. God I'm so on the fence here. Yeah. I think they win this. Who I have no fucking idea. There's no reason to pick. Why why they would win this game who Newcastle. Yeah. Wow. So I this is this is my this is the end of myself Hampton acknowledgement and fandom, I love me some saints. But if this is the one that Newcastle win, I promise I won't even I won't ever talk about Berg and remain. Who's amazing six ability again? I think that you think Southampton will will win this. I think Southhampton better win this game. I think Southampton should I think it's gonna be two-nil to Southampton. But God damn if they don't get three points. Even if even if it's a draw I won't ever love. Mario Amina the same again. I mean, I guess if there is a reason to pick Newcastle is that they're so bad at home. They love when people come into their home and have their way with their love loved ones new. But on the road, they're slightly better. They played pretty they looked. Okay. It's bench us United at least for a half. Fortunately, okay, games are ninety minutes long. Didn't work out for them. I I. Tough. This is tough. But I'm going to go feel have gone out on a limb. Like in every damn game this week, some probably gonna get zero right? But I think I'm going to go with Newcastle. I'm gonna give a little bit of. No, we haven't had a week like this. You're calling this week. We're going on lips. I like I like this. This is why you listen to this shit has y you're still here in our something if you're listening this is going to be the weird week. Start your weird fantasy place weird. Let's get weird. So let's EPL. We're we're we're done with the English. We move onto the lap around the world starting in Spain. Because there's a big one, I don't know if anybody's heard of Barcelona rail Madrid, but they're playing L classic. Oh this weekend. We've talked about we've talked about both teams form in the Champions League section rail Madrid averagely come in struggling. Personal income in without messy. Those are the two big headliners. It's going to be at the Camp Nou. So it's gonna be a tough one obviously for Madrid here. I'll give him credit say, they keep a close, you know. That's such a that's a backhanded slap. I mean it though. I think I think they could pull out a draw. I would say they could pull it predicted. But drawn this you're still being a dick. Again, Elvin it's like in my DNA. It's a classical throw it out the window. Yeah. There's going to be said for that. It's just been. They've been struggling so mightily. There are some classical blowouts though. Could I mean, no messy? So let's so you're saying it with you're going in the Premier League with a weird weekend. I think this is a weird week, and I think Madrid like beat Barcelona alsi. Yeah. I think would you'd be Barscelona bail has brace. He's a big game player as long as he's healthy. He is always a threat. I think bail brace in row matured win. All right. It's not as crazy as it. Sounds in my NS censio gets third and three one. I'll do you want better. Go on. Fortunately, got direct TV's. I can't watch it on red. I no need to get with the times. And start streaming more whatever Sam is older than me. Technically. Boondocks league, we get dormant. You know, we've mentioned them as being must watch at the moment and not just because of politic. The the godchild they're just so much fun to watch. And they're gonna be playing hair on Saturday, which will be. It's a good way to fluff. Your sports Boehner in preparation for a little, you know, real American college football on Saturday. Other game Leipzig hosting shock should be another. Another good one some good ones in in Buddhist leaguer. There is a huge Sunday coming up in Syria to great games Napoli host Roma as should be a goal fest. I love this league. Yeah. That should be a serious school that should be a lot of phone, and then lots he'll host Milan, which will not be a gold fest, but should be a good ninety minutes of soccer, which would be very entertaining for I guess soccer, nerds, probably an inner what's what's my nerd game of the week shit? Would you have won your soccer nerd game of the week? Yeah. Might be that one. It was inter help. I have the right? Who's they use titan, Alon and your prep sheet? I did which normally would mean Milan for me. But I thought it was inter so I'm going to. Yeah. I typed inter. So I'm just a big fat. Yeah. I was thinking lots in a c Milan wooden catch your attention Malone place Sampdoria. Inter. It's dorm door doorman hurt as Meitner game. Actually, I have to be way more nerdy. That continue. Well, here's a non nerdy game for you in France. So there's a massive derby going legal. Oh, that's gotta be. That's it. Let's go welcoming PS g in lake classic in. This should be a great game. PS? She has we've we've sort of mentioned they've experienced a slight dip in form at least in the Champions League in in legal. They've just been absolutely steamrolling people. They've they've scored their last four points like seventeen to one or something just murdering everybody in fourth place. So they're in their good team. And this is always the Kluge derby huge. There's the class sons good atmosphere at this game. So this would be a lot of fun to watch a good game. And I suppose an important side note, we should point out Cleese. We are going to be doing a little game watch call what you want. If you want to interrupt me in called something else. You can't. I'm just calling a game watch with PS g in New York City this weekend for seek. We will we'll announce the details shortly, Twitter or wherever social media somewhere. So so keep an eye out for that. But we'll have a little. Game watch for the lake classic with PSE and more say. Yes. It's on. It's on it'll be it'll be Sam myself. Zyppah Logan with the camera. We're gonna capture some smooth little content. We're gonna watch some games give away a little bit of merch. It'll be a small low key event. But PS G is trying to you know, feel out the bar the water see will we're all about. And I was like, hey Sam the fire out. So if you're in New York come to the events say hi to us legends bar on thirty fourth street. Let's get the details. I don't care. We'll reveal later to this'll be a really good time. If you wanna come to New York City, it'll be Sam myself. The game itself should be a lot of fun to this should be fuck cash should be a good game. I know that the atmosphere for those for those lay classics are top notch. So also Adrian Robbie oh is fucking amazing. So I watched that entire game. That guy is like when you talk about that conversation for of those best midfielders, I know I brought up couple guys earlier. But I mean agent Raby I was going to be he's only twenty four twenty three. Like, this guy is going to be very good for the next ten years. The most random thing probably have ever said. But his facial hair gives me the he. Cbs? I love that. This is where the dark hours pod go. I just noticed it at the end of the ES g napping. Because it was like too perfect. And like to I kept. I'm not even sure can I also say I hate watching Napoli games because of the track. That does suck. I thought you were going to say the midfielder's shut up and the midfielders are huge. It's the diminutive front wherever right? I mean, I'm gonna Allen or Alon or whatever. The fuck are big boys and the front three is diminutive. That is the worst spoke with the you're right. The napoli. What are they something about that? The Italian league. Like, they just. There stadiums are horrible. Who is the one was at Napoli with the stadium was empty and the front the first level who was it in. Napoli Napoli at level against Liverpool. I think it was. Yeah. I'm totally blanking on this. But yeah, that's what he has Liverpool at Napoli and the first level in the Champions League was basically empty, and it's because you can't see the field, essentially, it's like a horrible view. And the tickets are just are more than like upper level or something like that something weird. Napa rates Italy news yet they need to figure it out. Also, can you lose Joma as sponsor Jesus? Is that milk? What is is it like a spring? No, it's the fucking kit. Johm is like Adidas like they're taking Jomo money Joma. In orange, buck and hope Academy Award capi Kappa. I've worn fucking mitre of worn. We go down the list of like, the, you know, the soccer brands that we've I've never worn Joma Joma any. It's just think I'm way off. Healthy the same shit Calcio Calcio, and it's the same shit. It sucks in a real sponsor. I suppose they're not gonna be sponsoring this podcast anytime soon. No fucking house. I want I wouldn't take calcium. So we'll move to Lessing less thing. We gotta talk about MLS. So last weekend of the season. Hear all the games are played simultaneously on Sunday. I'm sure they call it something decision day, or, you know, something orders supporters Saturday well supporters shield Sunday. Because the the biggest story is the race for the supporters shield between Atlanta and rebels. So a couple of things here. Lanta play visit Toronto where it's up to recurring guest. Alex Bono, Alex Bota for against all the weapons are gonna be thrown. Adam red bull's well store Landau the worst team in the east not a bad opponent to finish up against so interesting subplot here about the weekend is really the rest of the season. Actually for Atlanta is that their coach Tom Martino weeks of speculation. It was finally announced fish. Really that. He will indeed be leaving at the end of the season. Whenever that is. We pretty much assume he's taking over the Mexico job. I don't know if that's been announced officially not. But it's pretty pretty well known. It seems like well does their well-deserved as well. Yeah. A lot of people are pissed that the US is not more wasn't more serious about him. You know, why? I'm not actually sure if this is true or not. But I. For somebody. That speaks English. Yeah. English as a first language. Yes. So I don't know that the loan my mind. Yeah. Yeah. It's too bad. I don't I don't know. Let's not even go to that right now. Okay. The because I'll just get sad mad. We're going. We're about to finish. Let's let's let's add end up a happy note. So the reason it's it's interesting in the context of MLS though is Atlanta's been arguably the best team all season. But now, so this this whole cloud of Tatham or Tino leaving is now hovering over the team. And I think for the first time in a long time, they are actually not favored to win, the spiritual. I think rebels are now favored to win the shield. So that that's Toronto that that's more predator Toronto. Perhaps perhaps an obviously Orlando is not gonna put up much of a fight soom. So yeah, interesting. It will be interesting to see how Atlanta go from here because they've been a ton of fun to watch. And hopefully, this doesn't derail him. Hopefully, they make a nice nice long run in the playoffs. They'll be interesting. Just a lot of fun to watch really? And the things the club is done down there in Atlanta. It's just incredible. If you wanna talk about supporters shield as opposed to what people prioritize in America, which is the playoffs. I think in terms of supporter shield the team that plays the best generally does win right? Like in leagues across the world. We've watched they pull a game like this out. Should I mean Toronto's not been that? Great. So if you're looking for good money. I mean, it hasn't been land. I think I think I would put my money on. I think I would too. And if you're saying they're finally not favored, then visit the time and also red bull amazing little thing to make this push here. Like, this has been amazing, and I cannot wait for the postseason. But Atlanta do do deserve these supporter shield. They've definitely been the most s most aesthetically pleasing team to watch the season. You got through it took a couple tries speaking forte. That that's exciting. And I'm really excited for the postseason shakeout. I wanna see DC United can win. This thing should be interesting. In fact. Now that you mentioned I think I'm actually going to be doing a little crossover thing with Julian gristle of Atlanta United. We're going to have a little little Instagram takeover on Saturday for travel day on the way to Toronto. So he'll he'll be taking over the SAM's army Instagram posting. Whatever he wants really, hopefully, no nudes or anything like that. But hopefully, I guess I guess whatever he wants whatever you wanna do is your world. You gotta Julian, you know, what if you post nude man, that'd be awesome. Not of you Jesus. Whatever whatever you wanna do your world. So that on Saturday and. Maybe an interview next week keep an eye out for that as well. So we will be back Monday are actually to live live in-studio taping on Monday because of the party on Sunday. Right, right. So no leg. No audio issues. I'm sure I'll be speaking in full sentences and seeing aesthetically pleasing correctly. Enza will be there to react to whatever happens against palace overreact. I think is the word you're looking for. I mean either way if we lose so be when I out again. So we back in Tuesday. Good weekend games here. Big thanks again to Mike for stopping by. And we will see you next week, boys and girls care, see.

"Welcome into latest edition of ESPN SEM. Dan Thomas Show my shock your hair slump Stephen Nickell brand light is without says while we also welcome shoot Rawson into the show of course at Europa League today are made hard work if they win a standard Liege interesting suffering before this game on astles playing sell saying when I arrived here the creativity is more or less good but being supports this week different opinions now hey someone with a different opinion in a sociologist tongue road and see luke is not part of my plans because every single week we're going through the same thing impacted was worse no we are being competitive creative maybe we lost something but I know we're going to recover that there are that makes it certainly is a mess at the moment created by even Gazeta's and awesome finger originally but putting on and he's brought other players into that Denisa bias hasn't done particularly well he's been in and out the side but the problem is a massive obviously is not trying hard enough because much money when he when everybody was in doubt that he was applied that was going to be consistent week in week out you know these problems before he was given that massive contract so that was where the problem started him to do and that's why he's not in the side and he's on so much money it's an absolute disgrace had this has been allowed to fester for so long how'd you deal with this thing only show Robbo a nickel pepper of course two big goals the him to very impressive goals as well yeah he came into the sub Ameri also tonight isn't the day to talk about that he was not in the squad that is the decision this weight and Sunday silence the critics are are still a group F three out of three wins event on Frankford with the wind awesome losing the game two one they were struggling being outplayed at times it's really dangerous on the counter-attack he'd made he was the third of the substitutions e came on any change the game no I m reset on occasions other plaza for their right to play more than Missouri had so there's something going on on the training field he's not working hard enough he's not doing the things that the manager the against ship would unite these started to show one or two glimpses that you could go pass people that need to pass this game we'll give him a lot of confidence now the crowd and that right behind in the plaza now when he came to the club the first couple of games he wanted to play in the number ten Ronnie wanting to press the ball and I couldn't do that so straight away there was the problem and I think that comes back down to what the biggest problem Arsenal's head for a very long time no and that is playing consistently well defensively the amount and you look at Arsenal when you're when you're watching the game and you see how spread out they are in their shape I mean the first goal for today against Arsenal you get left back trying in enough Chen ain't going to be any law then he has no and if you end up having a frozen injuries and you go get them to play then he'll play but why I get so desperate you have to plan all listen if I think Ms Office Anthony Love you like probably why L. Walson in the squad for this game tonight at all not even on the bench netball let's keep compact we'll defend if they win that then we have our shape and for me arsenal still has a lot to to work through back in when he and and it seemed Obiang had such a good partnership developing Obama has really bright spot that is it and given the thing will let let's be honest every talking about what do you do well what can we build on there is absolutely nothing you can look at the not good defensively through mid to provide a defensive shape in a way of playing defensively that is is there going to be comfortable in this game I am returning that you can have great games and you got some very bad gains as we show against Sheffield united so at the moment I don't think there are any better than more competitive says I'm not sure me and you can score goes pepper who can run the ball but I don't think they're any more precise in the way they're trying to play there's no organization they're playing off the cuff and when you do that mcnichols free kicks the first one I think the goalkeeper should have seen a lot quicker with probably the second next one it was hit with pays tipping over the wall arriving in north London yes still neglect pepys has absolutely no confidence lack Azad is is getting a run out on Tuesday nights probably wondering well what do I do unnecessary and inherited headache nothing else has gone as you would expect from a mind of his quality awesome Vangere in a header in midfield out wide then they're basically going three d three and it's something that simple fix you say listen don't go chasing right behind him he needed to score goals he's got a big price tag on his head ask they'll have an always bay but sicne well when he started games this would do him and world of good it was an excellent couple of free kicks we're Pasta listen pastor just tone row Niamey and say Luke measure you'll know is not in my plans are more interested in the this season and you can see what most teams are trying to do the what their style of play their game plan policy and patents I still think asked nor off the cuff when they platt from the is the Montanelli new will call these are the future of the club and it's not Ohio and that gets rid of all this every week talking to the same thing nine that emory has been in charge you expect a whole lot more than what you're seeing you expect a whole lot more than knowing defenses had you by David Lewis just before the transfer window Pusan's I as a result I think he's he's painted himself into this corner and as much as has been a little bit of the cuff when they're defending their might poor she's not well organized when it becomes a free and open game they'll go excellent players who can run the ball excellent plays a composite beyond the opposite on platforms when the opposition oppressing them up the field and there's obvious that they're going to get caught in bad areas so I don't think he's improved it he's got to make sure he's going to do a lot of work on the I think if you're a gambler of all the teams in the primarily also the hardest ones to call because as I said it's always completely open yet you wouldn't trust them one big would Robbo as a standard you brought up van Gogh early on in an Aso discussion you of course one of the first to call for his head have they gotten any better uh under Marie I'm not sure they have you know when I when you manage a car you may I expect to them to have a game plan I've watched a lot of premier league football two hundred and thirty two days the first time since so sharp was appointed permanent manager typically or individually via these hand. Let's take a look what else happens in Manchester United with a win away from Old Trafford just the one but he's ill-disciplined eventually letting them and that's something that I am re is allowing to happen and that's something that awesome vendor allows that so many of the place they haven't got the discipline both kgo eight united beating design and picking up all three points and what does that mean it means that first victory on the road for two during Chelsea now we have the boring they're not skill whatsoever except defending lack in the eighty s that was the most boring game I still wish the DOT now not the prettiest game on the ice certainly according to Franklin book we have Mr Country that we know from Chelsea with the arrives the referee the way he wants to fight the position some people say that so hard and he's showing great carrots I don't see it that way I see these apply that's all the attributes needs to be a good midfield it might be scary really scary missing out on GEICO's easy to use mobile app you can manage your Vica policy whenever into come with some sort of pattern apply making them good and check out your city where they gonNa be good you know we're GonNa make the opposition in today's this is where we're going to be good defendant and we'll go through because they have the tendency to try playing football which is not the case of Inter Frank is made a lot of Italian friends go and do well in Europe at the moment he wants to play decent football with insert but he hasn't got the front pages linking up with each other he hasn't quite got the switches apply that he's looking for the back three armpits ain't got what it takes is a man who's one you know big European competitions rowboat and I would expect again I would have expected still to play at a high level for a Champions League side I think he could come on as a sub every so often but if you're gonNA pay him a lot of money Robert than a suggestion but it depends on him and not me he can still do a lot and he can be a driving force for the team unconvinced that any it's a bit of a disaster you've got incredible tons of front and lockers at by me young and mccloud peppy if we judge him on what we show coming out of the on the big for the champions thing that I at the group stages give them a chance to automatically qualify facing Bruce Dorton by two dollars we said we got this because I home regret from home they don't understand what for install I found on the advocates curse and how it is very lifelike then what is it Ted keep spinning now the coach would love to have at their disposal robot is lots on Abraham Bitch at thirty eight years of age good enough much better team not only that I think he he provides you something that every team would love to have an aura you provide nothing has changed under the Niamey home the gray away from home the door so nothing changed how easy is it adds a a certain amount of just complete confidence when you step on the field and play like that I think is always I loved him when he was an event loved him in that first season Chelsea where not only did he win titles he played some outstanding football they were events were as good as to what anybody in Europe at that time initially is tell you why it's not just because the results is because of the the points that are both brand and showed me also Mike it difficult for the opposition when we get the bowl these balls we can apply we're going to spend the opposition round to start with then we'll play from there I don't know asked and we're trying to do at times when that plan is up another point about for the rent you got a player that is nowhere near the quality and doesn't have the presence in the Renta ran let's play with another doll we can just bury it deep in the ground happy geico download the industry-leading GEICO APP today not start again at that level champion League level yes he can come on for twenty minutes right and he can tell me jozy size but that said so it's worth it him of which is going to get into the side yes he might win but was in the pace you never had great place before he might link up the pipe account seem been really talk 'cause play for Napoli He's worth worth bringing him into Napoli they've got milk Iran's the moment and you lot he likes to play with Lozano Upfront he plays with dreamers playing brilliantly so I can't see where trying to give them a pattern apply and he's GonNa consume disciplined as well Kim doozy or I think could be a very good player but he sums up with a way rents the guy who thinks even now he's the greatest on that is an act is an act surely from a full perspective I think he understands what he's what he's going to go into and put in a team that scores a ton of goals creates a ton of opportunities I think he's yeah of course and I say that because he's a goal scorer and every team needs a goalscorer I don't care how many have on your roster I did and being the substitute not a chance and if you do take a chance on it and stick him in your dressing room and he's not happy capitulate but what love it a lot more Italian talk on the latest edition of the cereal some podcast Nikki Meena and DAB breaking down Hansen Victoria coming from behind to beat them by three goals to no doubt about it was a big game for someone we've criticized a lot think craigsewing many chances he wants to play better football at the moment they can't get that fluency going team the just to get results at the moment that will get better and better go with the premise that he knows he's just going to be on the bench coming off the last twenty minutes Angelozzi can put his arm round in and manage that is that worth yes and new one drop today extra time as available on our Youtube Channel we've had a lot he is a good comparison to be honest your rent is quite happy to come off the bench he quite happy to be a bit part player do you think for one seconds lots on is interest as you do so if you're looking for a different answer different way of playing and you normally thrown rent they putting on lockdown you're going to be they've got plans you can do that job and the other plays the Ancelotti wants to Mike runs in behind not for me what about someone life Teen Rubber Twix last twenty four hours after you went on yesterday I feel it's out we speak to you about this because you love Antonio Conte we could coming out with the ball from the back so he's limited at the moment they got a good result against dormant they slugged it out they work hard defensively they worked hard to make sure don't oh not
