Bonus - The UEFA Champions League Draw

"Hello everyone welcome to this the state of the union extra time calf. I'm going to be going over the uefa. Champions league group stage draw which occurred yesterday at the uefa headquarters <hes> many going group by group at the end. I'll give you my predictions for who i think he's gonna get first second in each group and then the third place teams that will transfer to the europa league. I'll give you all those at the end of the podcast us all right so first off group in group a we have p._s. G real madrid club polga and galatassary okay so p._s. G they qualified as the winners of league won the french league. They've been in the champions league every season since the two thousand twelve thirteen version of the competition <hes> just like last year. I'm sure they're favored to go far. However with the injuries to both cavani an imbaba might be a little difficult for them. <hes> imbaba's definitely gonna be out for for a month. Cavani were not so sure. Maybe a little bit less. <hes> the first games will be next month so we'll see next. We have real madrid. They won the tournament three years in a row last year. You know ironically the first time they didn't have rinaldo with them. They didn't advance to the final <hes> they qualified as the third place team in lalita the most successful team in champions league history thirteen time champions <hes> their most most recent came in the twenty seventeen eighteen season however last year they were knocked out by accident around sixteen club brugge bruges <hes> they qualified to the playoff round so they actually didn't qualify until wednesday night <hes>. They've never progressed past the group stage. I don't really see them getting out of the group this time either <hes> and last in group group a may have gallo-thomas arrived. They qualified as the turkish super league winners. This is their twenty six time in the tournament <hes> but their best finish impasse was in the quarterfinals. They've never advanced past the quarterfinals so there you have a group egg p._s._g. Real madrid club ruge galatassary. Would we got for group b. In group a we have buyer munich tottenham olympiakos and red star belgrade okay. I offered group b. mayer munich they qualified because they were the winners of the bundesliga last year <hes> other five-time winners of the champions league their last win coming in twenty twelve and thirteen <hes>. I expect them to go pretty far. I definitely definitely they're going to progress on the group <hes> but i don't know exactly how far they'll go beyond that <hes> we'd still still kinda early in the season so we don't know exactly how barnes playing saying we don't know how they're going to line up or if they're gonna change anything while they're playing in the group stage but we'll see our next got tottenham hotspur <hes> they qualified as fourth forth in the premier league. Obviously they were the runners up last year losing to liverpool in the final. They've only played forty. Seven seven champions league matches ever last year was their best finish so again. They essentially have the same team they had last year. They lost a couple of players through transfers but i expect them to do fairly well our next in the group. We got olympia coz. They've never progress passed around sixteen. They qualified through this through the <hes> playoff round so they qualified this week also <hes> to you know we'll see how how only goes does. I haven't really followed them. I don't really know too much about olympiakos. <hes> you know they're one of the best teams in greece but you know we'll see how they do. In grabby and lastly we have read store red star belgrade they qualified through the playoff round also <hes> <hes> but they were one time winners of this back in the ninety ninety one version of the competition <hes> you know they're right up there with olympia close. I guess they're obviously not favored to win the group and they were you know from pop four of the draw <hes> so we'll see how they how they do. I mean it's this is a pretty pretty cut and dry group in groups. See we have manchester city shock tar don atsc denominate zach doc rep and atalanta okay manchester city. They qualified as the winners of the premier league last year. This is their time in the champions league their best finishes in the quarterfinals for the last two <hes> two seasons losing to liverpool and in tottenham last year respectively but they're favored always to go fill fairly deep into the champions league. I don't know how they'll do you this year. <hes> i think it'd be similar to last year. I'm sure they'll definitely make it past the group stage obviously <hes> and then i think they're gonna make it to probably the quarterfinals again and then from there. We'll see you know it gets kind of dicey. It's hard to predict how teams are going to do once they reach the quarterfinals <hes> next week got chuck chuck todd donetsk <hes> don't really know too much about them but they qualified as the winners of the ukrainian premier league <hes>. This is their twenty time in the champions league league. Their best finish was the two thousand ten eleven season where they reached the quarterfinals before losing to the eventual champions barcelona <hes> guess we'll we'll see see how they do. They were in pot two so they're technically the second strongest team in this group. I'm looking forward to to seeing how they play. <hes> next week got dinamo. It was a grab they qualify through the playoff round <hes>. They've never made it past the group stage so you know we'll see how they do. This is probably a <music>. A group c is i would say the the weakest group. I think manchester city is gonna have no problem you know advancing out of this group than men cities strongest longest team in the group obviously <hes> and it's going to be a fight for that second place spot <hes> and last we have atalanta they qualified fight his third in syria last season and this is their champions league debut so <hes> who knows they may they may surprise people. I mean they surprised prize. A lot of people ask you about finishing third in syria so we'll see how they do this year. I'm looking forward to watching them play and what we got for a group d in group d we have you've enters athletico madrid beyer leverkusen and lokomotiv moscow. Ask how you ventas they qualified as winners of cereal last year there two times winners of the champions league and seven time runner runners runners up <hes> they last final in the two thousand sixteen seventeen season before losing to real madrid <hes>. I think they're favored to go far in this. You know obviously one of the big teams in europe. <hes> you know so we'll see <hes> next week got at madrid. They qualified as <hes> as you. We're getting second place in la liga last year <hes>. They've never won the champions league but they made the final on three occasions. <hes> the most recent was the twenty fifteen in two thousand sixteen season before losing to real madrid on penalties in extra-time next. We got <hes> beyer leverkusen. They finished ashforth in the bundesliga last season. They were runners up in the two thousand one two thousand and two champions league and most recently they made it to the round of sixteen sixteen in the two thousand sixteen twenty seventeen season so we'll see they're always kind of a hard team to gauge even in the bundesliga so we'll see how they do in this group group and then lastly we have locomotive moscow <hes> day qualified <hes> they got second in the russian premier league so that's how they qualify for the tournament <hes>. This is the first time in the champions league since two thousand five thousand six <hes> tournament so we'll see how they do. It's a pretty <unk>. Solid group can really say who. I who i think event is to win but you know as far as the other spots who knows all right. So what are we got at four group e in group e. We have liverpool napoli red bull south book and genk okay defending champions liverpool <hes> obviously they qualified because they are the defending champions. They finished second in the premier league last year they would have made it. You know regardless six time winners and you know they're defending champs so they're favored to go far in this tournament. <hes> you know i don't know it's it's. It's it's tough to say. How defending champs do i mean you know. Obviously they're not real. Madrid madrid had a few seasons where it was easy for them to defend their title title <hes> but liverpool came out to the start of the premier league season at least really really strong so i think the same thing is going to happen in the in the champions league. They're they're gonna come out out looking to defend their title. Our next week got napoli. <hes> they qualified <hes> second in syria last year <hes> so nighttime in the champions league you their best finishes were the two thousand eleven two thousand twelve season and the two thousand sixteen two thousand seventeen where they made it to the round sixteen <hes> both times they were eliminated by the eventual winners of the champions league so you know we'll see italy's you know. I don't know it just seems like like the italian teams. They don't really seem like they don't go for the champions league too often. They're you know to occupy. We're trying to win syria at least in my opinion <hes> so we'll we'll see how they do this year or next week. Got red bull salzburg. They were the winners of the austrian bundesliga last year. This is their fifteen time. I'm the champions league and they've only qualified for the group stage twice so previously they were in the play offs or the second or third round qualifying lying but you know this is their second time <hes> going to be in the group stage. Don't know too much about them. Last year they were in the league so we'll see how they do this year and last in the group we have g- inc they qualified as the belgian champions from last season <hes> i'm back in the champions league for the first time since two thousand eleven two thousand twelve season and unfortunately for them. They've never advanced out of the group stage and once again again. I don't think that they're gonna they're gonna do with this year but we'll see i mean anything can happen obviously the strongest team in the group so we'll see what we got four group f in group f we have barcelona but we'll see dot mt inter milan john and slavia rock okay barcelona they qualified as the winners of illegal last year on sit thirty time in the champions campion's league. You know the five time winners last year they had that very very disappointing. Semi-final second leg they played anfield liverpool up three. Nothing on aggregating ended up losing four three <hes> which is tragic especially considering. They put so much emphasis on trying to win the champions league last year. <hes> you know they brought in greece. Men and you know there's still talk that they may before the transfer window closes. They may pick up or shoot me. Bring back nighmare with messy being injured grecian performance last weekend in la liga so we'll see i mean messy still gonna be injured or somebody's group stage matches <hes> but i still see them progressing pretty far in the champions league so next we have bruce dorfman <hes> they qualify because they were second in the bundesliga last season <hes> they've won tournament one time way back in nineteen ninety six ninety seven version of tournament <hes> they were runners up to bar munich in the twenty th twelve twenty thirteen tournament last year they got eliminated in the round of sixteen by eventual finalists and runners-up tottenham hotspur. You know they're pushing to try to win the bundesliga this year. You know sometimes champions league can get in the way that i don't know we'll see you. You know how how much of a push or how much importance they put on the champions league <hes> but i expect them to do pretty well our next. We have <hes> inter milan milan. They finished fourth in syria last year. The three-time winners last time was in the two thousand nine two thousand ten champions league but they've been out of the competition titian since the two thousand eleven two thousand twelve so now they're back they picked up lukaku and as of yesterday they have alexis sanchez now so i think not only they're going to try to make a push for syria but they're also going to you know try to do something in the champions league specially after being away for so long <hes> they used to be a staple of the champions league and not having them in the tournament is kind of weird but they're back so we'll see how they do and lastly we have slavia via prague. I don't really know too much about this team. They qualified to the playoff round so they wanted to the last teams to make it <hes>. This is only their second time making it to the champions league group stage <hes> <hes> the first time in the tournament was back in two thousand seven two thousand eight so they're still relatively new <hes> we'll. We'll see how they do. Are we got four group g in group. She we have senate saint petersburg benfica leon dion and rb like tick okay zenit saint petersburg. They were the winners of the russian premier league tally qualified <hes> they were <hes> in the champions league or out of the champions league since two thousand fifteen two thousand sixteen term and that year they reached the round of sixteen eighteen. You know we'll see how do i don't really follow the russian league. <hes> i really only have any exposure to rushing teams. During the champions league and europa league they were they were in pot one. You know because the russian league is one of the strongest leagues in europe next. We have been fica. They were the winners of the portuguese league last season the two time winners of the champions league <hes> last year though unfortunately they finished third in their group so they got transferred to the the europa league <hes>. I think they'll do pretty decent in the group. You know we'll see next. We have leon <hes> they qualify third place in league one the french league last year. This is their eighteenth time in the champions league but unfortunately their best finish was making it to the semifinals back in two thousand nine two thousand ten season this year though they are really starting off in league one really really well so you know i think there <hes> hopefully the doesn't take away from their league one performance or vice versa you know hopefully they continue playing well in both both tournaments impose competition. Excuse me lastly. We have rb leipzig. They finished third in the boonies last year. That's how they qualified. This is their third consecutive season in the champions league <hes> but they have never advanced past the group stage so we'll see see how they do you know everybody knows the story about rb leipzig. They're kind of a manufacturer team. They really don't have a history <hes> but during the champions league they finished in bundesliga gear so we'll see how they do and okay last four group h in encroach h we have chelsea i ax m._c._i. And lil okay chelsea they won the league last year and i believe with two seasons ago. They changed it up so that the winner of the europa league would get an automatic group stage berth in the champions league <hes> but they also finished third in the premier the league so they would have been here regardless <hes> i did not know this but last year in the europa league chelsea did not lose a single game group stage all the way up to the final day did not lose a game at all in the european league there one time champions of the champions league and as crazy as it sounds. I think i watch that final probably think i've seen it about eight times. At least i used to spend a lot of time in africa and was the eleven twelve champions league so it would have been the summer or the beginning of summer two thousand and twelve <hes>. I was in a hotel tell room in kenya and the match you know constantly on obviously i wasn't walking around too much by myself so i was sitting the hotel and i would just watch whatever soccer matches excuse me football matches they had on and they were constantly showing this because it was right around the time that it had happened and you know drug basically save save chelsea and help them to to win that <hes> but yeah i that's. That's my chelsea memory of the of the champions league <hes> the only time they've ever wanted our next we have this i._s. Surprisingly qualified to the playoff round <hes> they've won the champions league four times last season they knocked out unreal madrid and you ventas before eventually losing to tottenham in the semi-final very young team obviously lawson players ears but i think they'll do well in the champions league this year next week. Valencia they qualified as fourth in the league <hes> they finished third in their group last ashutosh champions league got transferred to the europa league and they made it all the way to the europa league semi-final before losing to arsenal knowing too much about valencia valencia. They're decent team so i think they'll they'll do well <hes> and last we have lille they finish second last year in league league won the french league <hes> but they've been out of the champions league now for seven seasons so this is their first time back in a while. They've they've had a pretty decent start in league one so but like i mentioned before sometimes the problem is that you know this this extra football these other competitions take away from <hes> their domestic leagues or vice versa there domestically performances will suffer because they're playing games on saturday or sunday and then come back. You're playing game on tuesday wednesday in the champions league and then you have another game on saturday or sunday so you know a lot of football. We'll see how how it affects them. So <hes> <hes> that's it for all of the group h but this is something that i think is is pretty interesting. There's three members of the u._s. National team that are in group h you have christian pulisic playing for chelsea you have so gino dust <hes> young kid place for i._x. He i think he just got his first call up to the us national team this past week <hes> but he's playing for x. and then timothy way plan for lille so you know this is basically <hes>. You know if you're a u._s. Men's national team <hes> supporter. This is a good group to watch. You know if you don't have anything any other interests or were <hes> a team in any of the other groups. You can watch this one there. You go so that's it. That's group a through h and now i will give you my predictions. After i take a small briefed <hes> um okay. Here's what i have for my predictions group i have p._s._g. Gee winning ralph madrid finishing second galatassary third and transferring to the league and club ruge finishing fourth group a b bar munich winning tottenham finishing second olympiakos transferring to the league and unfortunately red star belgrade fluid out of the tournament group. See i have manchester city winning at atlanta finishing second shock tar doughnuts go onto the europa league and dinamo zagreb or out group d have you vent his winning athletico madrid finishing second beyer liar leverkusen transferring to the europa league and lokomotiv moscow finishing last group e. I have liverpool finishing first napoli. Finishing second red bull sows berg transferring to the europa league and finishing last group f barcelona winning it inter milan finishing second bruce dorfman transferring to the europa league and slavia prague finishing last group g been fica winning leong finishing in second rb leipzig going to the europa league and zenit saint petersburg out group h i x winning chelsea finishing in second lille going to the europa league and valencia zia finishing in last. I wouldn't really say that <hes> there's a group of death in this <hes>. Everybody's everybody's saying grew. Beth is probably the group of death because you're barcelona bruce dortmund inter milan in there <hes> but i don't know i i don't see brucie. You see a dorfman i dunno. I think they're going to focus on the bundesliga and i don't think they're gonna try to go in the champions league. I mean that's just my personal opinion but i really do think that i ancestor city lucked out <hes> with their group group see i mean they have shocked tar dinette atlanta in dinamo zagreb and i think that <hes> <hes> manchester city is gonna walk through that i mean they may have that group completely wrapped up after four games <hes> so we'll see as i mentioned earlier i will probably be watching <hes> the majority of the group h games with chelsea. I x._y._z. leo solely because of the amount of u._s. Men's team <hes> players that are in that group but <hes>. I see myself watching a lot of games. You know i wanna see p._s._g. Play real madrid than byron. Tottenham should be really really good. You've a an athletic madrid. <hes> let's see benfica. Leon should be a good game definitely barcelona and inter milan and liverpool napoli should be pretty good. Let me know what you guys think what you guys think about my predictions. Which you guys think about the draw in general general <hes> you can search for me facebook instagram and youtube ninety an extra time or you can email me at ninety extra time at gmail.com look forward to hearing from you <hes>.

Keylor Navas to PSG, Bruno Fernandes to Madrid

"<music> welcome back everybody to the madrid podcast after a busy few days. We've had the champions league drawer. Of course the transfer window is drawing to a close news via our upcoming on sunday. We'll look ahead to that in a few minutes with firstly an update on some transfer news. It's expected to be confirmed. Firm shortly will leave the club for p._s. G ending. What's been a hugely successful period for him. At madrid left his home country of costa rica back in in twenty ten. He spent a season with thackeray before moving onto event in his third season. He became the number one there and it was that seasons performance led to him signing for wral madrid he made just six appearances in that debut season before taking over the number one jersey which he kept for three seasons until the arrival of tiba coo trois lost some older and only met one hundred sixty two appearances for the club in which time he simply what everything that wants to win three champions league's fort world club cups three super cups won the league and one spanish supercup of course the irony of ironies is the fact that he could end up lining up for p._s. G against real madrid in champions league on september the eighteenth now. Dan has let it be known goodies less unhappy. He was questioned when the rumor first surfaced earlier in the week and he went on to say. I cannot imagine this squat without keillor. Novas in it is is a very important player for us. He always has been and he has not told me that he wants to go. I want him to stay with us. As we just days remaining in this transfer window no end in sight to the name our saga pol pot but ninety nine percent certain not to be coming doesn't mean that that will be significant ignificant business still to conclude as doing the ranch late today rumors suggesting that brunette fernandez will make the move from sporting club deported portugal to madrid the fee in the region of seventy million euros now remember despite the headline ceramic jeff felix's season law season fernandez was the best display in the portuguese league school a whopping thirty two goals in fifty three appearances. Seven of those were penalty kicks. The dad refuses to give up all hope that he can't send paul gra manchester united to do a deal. The reality is that fernandez move looks far more likely as for the latest on neymar a mock well the latest offer from barcelona was turned dad flat in its nap beginning to looking greasing. Li likely that neymar will remain in france for the coming season outta that he and his entourage of actually. Let's club no that if a deal does not happen to take him away from p._s. G then he will put in all of his efforts into the upcoming season with p._s. G. is going to be interesting to see how the fans react if he does stay under d._v._d.'s teammates and i and told us to call the coach. Let's look ahead to vittorio lots of speculation that has odd would return this weekend but that simply is not going to happen. Martinez has asked for the national team pretty did add that we will not risk movie is not one hundred percent fit belgium meet san marino away and then travelled to scotland and staying with as he won the european league's player of the year award on friday lunchtime recent seasons meetings with vittorio. They all have proved problematic for row madrid. The last two meetings here ended to to achieve lead in both but we're pegged back to two two lost austin. I'm at two thousand seventeen. They went to kneel down on fifty six minutes before staging that thrilling comeback with bail renova murata remember him scoring as they recorded a memorable victory in two thousand fourteen moderate scoring his fifth madrid at the time and ronaldo again with the goals that won the game and it's the only any time in the last seven seasons madrid of actually denied villarroel go at home forty four goals being scored in the last fourteen meetings and there there have been no nil nil school. We always expect goals when these two meet at madrid remember as well if kept just one clean sheet in the last twelve away games in the league at fort madrid two games played then so far four goals scored they are creating a lot of john is averaging nineteen and a half shots on go pick gain ben zimmer with four and a half the most bail coming in just behind him on four and four different players providing the assist for the goals it takes two teams to make a great game certainly offering plenty here two games five goals again and once more team who create a lot of chances seventeen nineteen and a half shots on goal game so if the game runs according to the average but we should be getting thirty seven attempts gold potentially which made and sunday night will be dull what server as for the possible lineups it goes like this for rab madrid with a four three three speculating in the uh-huh tiba courtois in go marcelo ramos verana kaba haul back crews casimir mogae midfield bail ben zimmer venecia's nieces in that three pronged attack now whilst the times on a flight of being somewhat testing the stewardship of the club remains well balanced the the club posted a fifty three and a half million euro profit for this fiscal year that was before tax thirty eight point four million after which is an impressive twenty three point one percent higher than the previous year making the housekeeping look even more impressive they have a positive balance of one hundred and fifty five point seven million at the bank and and zero debts all in all an excellent financial performance doing less than certain times on the field now onto a bit of reaction from the champions is league draw as ever betrayed gwen near was president of the draw in monica's madrid drew p._s._g. Breguet and galatassary he said afterwards all of the matches will we'll be extremely difficult. It's not just p._s._g. All of these teams are very strong at home and they have fantastic support. We will need to be op very best to progress. Rimma suggesting that there is a further unhappiness in the playing ranks with the prodigiously talented uruguayan uruguayan international federica valverde is that held mental leaving before the transfer window closes. He sees another season just slipping by as he sits on the bench. I'm plays little role row. Battiste are standing by the latest on mariana lopa taghi over it. Legally to severe is it said desperate desperate to get his hands on the striker and he would be the first choice for severe if indeed that move goes through <hes> look at a few of the more crazier easier rumors that have turned up in the last twenty four hours. I leads madrid would use venecia's to manchester united to sell paul paul reducing the the asking price to sixty million socia- they say is a big fan chances of that happening zero perez will not sanction venecia's sell then the one of football's great self-publicists zlatan ibrahimovic thirty eight years of age on october third currently banging in the goals as a twenty five year twenty two in twenty two galaxy this season forty four in forty nine in the two seasons. He's been he's offered himself himself. Allegedly to manchester united andy rail madrid chances of this happening pretty much zero again as damn will probably find himself relegated to assistant and of the legendary sweet should he arrive also still to be concluded an possibly concluded. This weekend is the future of matter it coty a whose career is beating declined into after those continuing four labs over the last six months and our look and sanchez arriving he is surplus was to requirements <hes> but it's also z. Dan likes to calm dressing room. His reputation precedes him by a considerable distance chances of this happening again pretty much about zero same went for dibella as dan remember wants to wait twelve months to land kilian mbappe from e._s._p._n. Lastly hamas rodriguez could be very late targeted for me land. He's been the summer on the brink of that move to napoli. Remember now despite injury there is a they claim that <hes> milan wanna try to tempt him with a last minute offer out of that successful re debut voi- hammers rodriguez last week the likelihood he's he will recover his fitness and he will remain at least until january part of z dancer first team squad at that just about wraps it up then four today now don't forget you can catch up with all of the previous episodes of the podcast via the website at w._w._w.

Actually you're a perfect guest because initially when I was going to do this show I was GonNa Talk Premier League and some drama Gareth Bale into those are Kinda like it's it's mid July so there's nothing really to talk about aside some transfers but I feel like this transfer window has been kind of predictable kind of Dole. There hasn't been a landmark crazy. We all Kinda thought you didn't has are going to Madrid and you know like a Grease Mun. The Barcelona was kind of shocking but not not back crazy. I actually WanNa talk to you about Syria then do you do you feel comfortable talking about that. Yes Louis because our listeners we mostly talked about premier league and I feel like we have a ton of people like messages and tweet us comment being like guys. GotTa Talk Syria beyond me and more and you know we spent so much merely. We don't make time for Syria which is an amazing league so there's a lot of new faces in Syria this year you have sorry you're GonNa Tonio Khantay at Inter Guitar so still at EC Milan correct <hes> No. It's a jump outlaw. Now is the I don't even. I don't even know the fucking manager so rudely. What are your thoughts going into? This new Siri off season obviously event was making some pretty crazy moves <hes>. What are your thoughts? <hes> you know some <hes> <hes> preseason predictions season prediction <hes> you know right now. <hes> event is looks really strong had a little shaky game against interred <hes> today they wanted penalties. They face each other out in. I believe it was in China. <hes> you know those who are really bashing heads before they will actually was mostly the Inter Inter Milan fans. They were treating this game like it was the fucking Champions League final you know as a garment yeah it was a Jar Bay but even screen yard the the leader of that defense was like this is more than just like a friendly and whatever they were taking it way too seriously and you event is just casually drew and they won in penalty shootout but <hes> yeah they look <hes> you vent. This looks really really strong. They just they just have so much depth than all positions now is it's it's really scary and I think they're going to be one of the one of the favorites to win the Champions League this year well. What do you think about this need going around around? That delete is the new Phil Jones tend to comment on that. He's definitely not to new Phil Jones. This kid is for real is absolutely for Real N he has. He has a really unique trait and leadership at such such a young age <hes> I remember. I believe it was last season against P._S._v.. I believe it was the first matchup they lost and he told David Harris his own teammate to just you know applaud the way fans you know. Don't walk into the locker room with your head down. We have have to show respect and the way carried his team. Throughout the season because the editor visa just went to the final like to the final match of the season to dictate would be the winner of the League and you know he played a huge part in that and also taking them all the way to the semi finals in the Champions League. I think I think you've got a real real gem in their hands. A what do you think about the argument that that's a lot of mouths defeat. I mean there is so much star power <unk> in terms of death on that team. Now I do think it's going to be difficult for story the manage trying to get a lot of playing time for each of these players <hes> yes and no I mean it's still early in the preseason so events they still have a lot of time left to ship some players out and I think they're still not done as as crazy as it sounds. They're not done shopping yet so they're gonNA ship out a few guys to bring in some some revenue and trim the fat off that wage budget but we shall see as the as a preseason preseason goes on and and the transfer window comes near to close <hes> is going to be a lot of a lot of action being taken at EU Ventas Yeah I if you were to say there was a team that could overthrow event is is finally after seven straight. Years isn't now of winning Syria Eighty eight yeah God damn it you see someone coming out and you know dethroning them is said <hes>. I'm a big Antonio Conte guy so I wanna see what he does. Enter <hes> Roma's obviously in their Atlanta is an amazing story. They're very fun to watch. Is there any team. Do you think has shot. I mean you event is so stacked right now. Is there anyone you want. You could come close <hes> this year absolutely not the closest would be Napoli <hes> but in the long run it's definitely going to be either inter or a C Milan that will end the day and we'll say as a homer are you no. I'm being honest because I mean Inter Inter just ended their Bantu era where they just went so many years just making the wrong decisions and and struggling <hes> A._C.. Milan are on their way out of it. They've been making the right decisions this off season and even in the year before last season they had a decent squad but they battled so many injuries that really held them back and they were only two points away from a one point away from being in the Champions League <hes> so they're making the right decisions but it's still going to take time. What do you think since we have an A._C.? Milan Vada you are I ever A._C.. Milan guess out. You're just now Lebron A._C.. Malang guest really I'm sorry but what did you make the banned from Europe like that was pretty shocking news. <hes> where you like upset like tell me what was going through your head when you got that you know probably bleacher report update yet well for the record it really wasn't Aban <hes> a Similan after they got knocked knocked out of the out of the Champions League position within the Road Lake. They may negotiations with UEFA because they've been under F. F. P. Watch for the last couple of seasons so they said you know what will we wanNA. WanNa make a deal what you guys just kick cus out of the UEFA league this year and you know give us like another year to balance our budget or kind of end this whole thing once and for all so it was more of a negotiation both parties agree to it so that's actually she what a C Milan wanted so right now. It's a short term <hes> embarrassment for the club and for the fans and you know everything that has to do with that money as well yet. They're gonNA. They're gonNA miss out on a little bit of that that Europa League revenue but for the long run. I think it's it's for the best I will have to say <hes> I was doing my research which is little to none but before we started the show I was on your twitter in your top your pinned twee is a game of thrones soccer mean which is my favorite type of mean and and it's the one where it's the <hes> dragon shooting down on the night king just spoiler alert and it's like fair play and then the NYC emerges in its P._S.. Jiemin city. Do you feel a little jaded that the Jiemin said he just walk around. Rounded can get away of spending boom. Go Bucks in like nothing. Don't even get a slap on the wrist <hes> yeah I mean I actually posted a picture. Oh I think it was like a while back. Ago is like a mean similar to that and it it was a picture of one of the one of the characters in game of thrones being burnt alive from the fire from the dragon and I put a C Milan on the guy that's like burning to death you know in you know in response to <hes> A to B S G and Man City and all these other guys that are just like spending a ton of money on players but <hes> yeah when I look at that it's just you know even if seaport was under F. F. P. Watch a couple of years back and they still are under under the microscope and just you know you're kind of taking out the competition. You know I don't know if you if you remember back in two thousand four one four to win on that like majestic run all the way Champions League final go ring yeah. It's it's almost like what Leone ended in two thousand ten and I exit the season. You know it's so hard I it. They're making it even harder to do that for something like that to happen you know and A._C.. Milan and Inter Milan they've they suffered dearly because of f. f. the and you know and you have all these other teams that are just doing whatever they want yeah. That's why I really loved this Champions League. Even though the final kind of suck it was very boring but leading up to we had some of the greatest semi final quarterfinal games I've ever seen in my lifetime and I'm going to be completely honest with you really and that's why I thought the Miracle Not Miracle Ron I mean they had a great team. I asked but I feel as though you can appreciate that even more now because the speed of football and their budget being like what like twenty a million not even compared to say like Ventas which is like three hundred million or whatever it might be <hes> do you think that is going to become rarer and rarer and when it does happen. We're just GONNA have to appreciate it even more. What are your thoughts on that? He's small teams like like Monaco when they had that crazy run when bopanna them we're so they're like all right <hes>. Do you think that's going to become even rare rare or do you think there is still we're going to have some of these quote Unquote Cinderella Stories Yeah I think we'll we'll we'll continue to see see those teams every once in a while you know sometimes sometimes these teams that that rely on that money ball system which is producing young talent and selling them to the to the bigger teams. That's how these of these places <hes>. I'm sorry these teams survive nowadays so occasionally. You're they're gonNA. They're gonNA breathe a good squad every now and then so that's going to happen but back in the day it used to be two or three of those smaller teams that would really you. You know that would really push against the big teams make noise and the Champions League as I mean it doesn't inform Monaco also went to the final that year and they were not they were not projected and and <hes> deportee WLAC Rooney made it to the semifinal. Oh Yeah we're like Greece winning the euro's and what two thousand and two like those crazy like Mir. I mean less their city just a few years ago like we're just GONNA have to like watch. Some of these things happen to be like that will probably never happen again right in this day and age of football also also I love that you brought up moneyball. That's like one of my favorite movies which I get a lot of slack from from my friends. 'cause I like those like bat in the social network or like to my favorite movies like Kevin. Is there so boring. It's about analytics and facebook. I'm like dude like dishes crazy like I think it's this kind of the coolest shit ever so really. I'm going to transition over. Thank you for doing Syria Talk. I think a lot of our listeners are going to really appreciate that because they're like come on and we're like we're just we don't have enough time and you know I think because now you can watch Syria on E._S._p._N.. E._S._P._N.. Plus now. That's where you can watch it in America Yup which I think he's actually pretty good deal. You get a lot of games. I think it's like four ninety nine a month or something like that or yet for ninety nine and you can even catch some edits V._C._A.. Games you know. Would you like watching teams like E._S._p._N.. Fi play. I believe they're on it too in some international of friendlies and competitions you can watch right on there too. Wow <hes> I shit on E._S._P._N.. A lime you do a lot of grace on E._S._P._N.. A._F._C. and sometimes the league when they ranked <hes> what's it called event is fifteenth in the world. I was like what that just like Kerr. They put they put board through at number to shock the Shaka's top ten list came put forth number two. I mean I was really happy but I mean come mindless be serious. Let's get real. Come on so let's transition over to some drama. I wanted to bring this up. Just a hot topic about the Gareth Bale Don Saga that's going on in like people are thinking. This is fresh news. These these guys have not liked each other for awhile since Dan has come in. He's not been in his big picture. What have you made of the whole thing because for me? I think the Real Madrid fans have been very hard on the treatment of Gareth fail but I just want to get your opinion on it. Real quick yeah. I'm not a big fan of Gareth earth bail <hes> simply because he's just you know he has a really performed to to expectations are of course yet he he's had a good he's had a decent career at Real Madrid but the last couple of years when he was on squad he's just I don't know something is just not right. It's he makes a shit ton of money more than more than anyone in the league and it's it. It's crazy how he he wasn't able to fill in for Renaldo shoes when he left to events. Events I mean this past season was really really terrible and I was disappointed. Because I was really looking forward to watching Real Madrid play see how they would do without Cristiano Renaldo and I thought I thought Gareth Bale would be the guy like he came out. Swinging in the Champions League final scored an unbelievable bicycle kick and he's putting another one away even though it was a goalkeepers era but you know he looked like he was really determined and he said after the game you know Real Madrid could have seen more of this if I was was able to play more and he had the opportunity last year and there it is like we saw it was pretty disappointing. Yeah I mean I I studied in Wales. So maybe you know gear fail fan. You know go dragons <hes> but yeah I think you know the injuries and he's not been the best with Spanish media which can be harsh. I mean sometimes it's even harsher than the English media which is always regarded as like you know the worst so but I do think the guy has done a lot not as you know when expectations is Rinaldo who's going to go down as a top ten player of all time if not like the goat in some people's eyes. It's it's really hard to fill those shoes and I definitely thought you know real. Madrid is GonNa take a step back after he left but not to that degree would you would you agree. Oh absolutely I mean just a to fill Renaldo shoes. You know you're at you're asking for a lot and <unk>. Obviously everyone in world football the realm the mother these out in Madrid. They knew that you're not GonNa get the same you know you're not GonNa get the same contribution from bail as you would with Rinaldo but they they were expecting being a little bit more and while tag as well which I will defend Gareth Bale net like he did. Not You know like you get paid what someone's willing to offer so I don't blame Gareth Bale for the wages or anything like that. That's just my opinion though oh no of course I know you can't blame them for that. At all I mean he's GonNa go there and and make a deal in if you want ex and they're willing to give him X.. Then you can't hit you can't hate on him for accepting that that deal but <hes> you know now this one thing that I really didn't don't like about Gareth Bale's how isolated that he is around his own teammates how after six seasons he so not even able to understand Spanish yeah those I was Kinda fucked up. I was like come on. I was in Spain for a week. I'm bringing up. I'm such a fucking study abroad kid of not just WANNA go. You know I said a week in Madrid and I was like I'm already picking up some Spanish. How are you there? Christian Pulisic went to Germany and learn Germany in like six months exactly yeah I don't understand that at all and that's that's the culture of football players in Europe they go to a country they learn the language and they communicate with their teammates. That's why I always loved like Joseph. Marino arsene Wenger and other managers who speak like six or seven languages that blows my mind where I can barely speak English like that shit is wild like the be able to switch between or like Paul Paul but you ever see his interviews he gets asked like Spanish speaking French and then English and it's also just a silly articulate like I'm like I am such a fucking heathen. Really let's switch gears. Let's talk some premier. Li Do you have a Ethan Milan poor defense. Is there a team in the premier league that you favored you like yeah. I like Manchester United and I kind of over the last couple years I've I've jumped a little bit on the Wolverhampton Bandwagon because I am Portuguese so all those Portuguese players here's a Portuguese coach the manager all that stuff so <hes> I always keep an eye on them and I hope that they do well <hes> <hes> so going into this next season city or the favorites and then right behind him as Liverpool and then you have the rest of the cast <hes>. How do you see this season playing out? Do you see Liverpool finally getting that first title and like over what thirty years or so now or do you see city doing a three peat because I think those are the only two options at this point. I don't see Chelsea Tottenham arsenal menu really coming close yeah now. I I totally agree it. It's GONNA be tough. I think it's going to go down to the wire again like it did last year. <hes> Liverpool Man City they're they're gonNA be locked and loaded and and and it's GonNa be whoever's the last man standing practically so <hes> between those sue. I think I'M GONNA go with city. <hes> they have a more complete team in more they have more depth but when it comes to Europe I would definitely take Liverpool over them. Do you think that's because city is better over a longer span of time and Liverpool in short bursts can just be anyone on any given day. Any team can be anyone any given day but Liverpool is just that much better on a on a two leg affair <unk> yeah yeah I think you're I think you hit the nail right on right on the head <hes> but I think <hes> I think it has a lot more to do with how <unk> pool has that Champions League D._N._A.. And in the League it's they're kind of like what Real Madrid have been over the last fifteen years where they just predominantly focused on just the Champions League and the League. It's like a whatever that will just place you. You know second or third. Make sure we have a Champions League spot for the following season but over the years Liverpool's history is just Champions League Champions League Champions League. They have six of them. That's third most all time and that's you know that's their bread-and-butter just like Real Madrid. It's the Champions League were Barcelona. It's more of the League so yeah I think the Champion the Champions League D._N._A.. Really does does play a factor because when you when you're a player you walk into to <hes> to <unk> Livable Stadium. You know you're you're hoping it yeah it's intimidating and you're you have to live up to not just not just the E._p._l.. Sanders also European standards for so much history so much culture of just winning in Europe there that it's crazy it. What do you think about the argument that I I've honestly I'm going to be really? I saw this on twitter and I was like I was disgusted. I saw Liverpool fan say like even if we win the Champions League back to back. I would still prefer the league like that's that's just insanity right like I saw that I had to draw. I almost dropped my phone. I was like this. Are you insane like I get it your champions of England. It's been a long time but you are champions of fucking Europe. Yeah you're basically king in the world at that point yeah lane in Real Madrid's argument like yeah. We've been just champions of little bitches for so long so like what I have a couple of friends that are Liverpool fans and Dan. Obviously they know they know that the Champions League is you know the cream of the crop isn't going to be all that's it you know that's the title belot of of a football but they've gone so long long. Without winning the league they have never won a premiership because they switched the the English football league to the to the premiership in nineteen ninety two. I believe it was ninety three around that time ninety two ninety three doesn't matter yet and the last time they won it was in ninety so are they never won a premier league and it's been so long it's been a generation a generation and a half of not winning the week so I can understand where they just want to win that that that leak and be the the kings of England yeah I get that but at the same point it's like dude like you have probably the second best manager third-best manager in the I think your club is absolutely phenomenon. I don't know how I love him so much. Put a pep in him like one and two and then after that. I don't know like crewed yacht pod. She got me the thing about the premier league. We're Kinda spoiled because we have such great managers right now but I don't no no I feel as though Liverpool should be satisfied with a great European campaign after coming off like diverse English team to win since what Chelsea in two thousand twelve so I'll for Spain has just been dominating Europe for so long and you know I've been always one of the boys trying to defend the premier league saying we're still the best but it's hard when you know Spain just keeps winning. The Premier League are winning the Champions League sorry and win the Champions League. They're winning. They're open league. Exactly like severe. Severe is a great example won like three hundred nine emory which we don't have to talk about him but actually I do want to talk about man united. You say you Kinda like them. If there's a team you support it would probably go towards united. What have you thought about L.? Soak showers tenure in <hes> you see that there is a good future for the club. <hes> Sulk Shire did the best that he could. He did the best that any manager and I mean any manager in Europe could ever do <hes> even Modina when he was there. I I always defended wooding defended Soak Shire when things went south with the both of them. I believe that this is a board issue. The main issues definitely the board and also the mentality of the players at Manchester United <hes> Visiting oiled legal spoiled entitled Cocky and for Absolutely No God given reason at all and it pisses me off. I'm now you know a die hard man united fan but I do like watching the primarily and I do pull behind Manchester United and it pisses me off in that because this is the this was the biggest club in the world at one point. They probably have the biggest fan base in the world but there's no longer the the biggest club in terms off anymore. <hes> they're not they they fell behind Barcelona and Real Madrid this year and it's sad to see the direction of that club and the players that are leading that locker room when everything was going great when they all WanNa play they can ball like Manchester United has plenty of talent they can be in the top four or they could even finish in third place if they wanted to play at their absolute best all the time but this mentality issue and when things were going great with Soak Shire this team looked great and when things started falling apart Soak Shire just you know he he told the how it was these players need a reality check. They got too comfortable. I think that was a big part of it. Yeah I think so too. It has to be that because I I don't know how I I just don't know how you can just be so hot. emplaced so well and then just die off a cliff and even some games where they drew in and loss. It looked like they lost you. No desire they had no heart there was no fight and it was it was embarrassing. 'cause this Manchester United when I when I look at players when I think of Manchester United I think Paul scoles I think of Robbie Keane and Michael Carrick Rio Ferdinand vintage. You know these tough tough players yeah gigs. Absolutely you know these tough you know engines <unk> at work so hard and look at what they have now. It's just great talent great potential but the attitude is just not there that mental toughness is just not there the fame winter their head. You know what happens to the best of us. That's what do you think about Chelsea altron. I'm avoiding arsenal at all costs. I don't want to talk about that team whatsoever. <hes> what do you think about <hes> Chelsea. You know new manager Frank Lampard coming after a pretty successful season Darby got Christian Pulisic Nick. How do you think they fair with? Transfer Ban seems they're going to be using a lot of young players. Do you see Chelsea heading in kind of a good direction. Yeah I think so <hes> you know the these all have a pretty decent team. <hes> it's a rebuilding year and probably the next year too so I think what their main objective this season is trying to place in fourth place third place <hes> and get that championship spot you know they they were still able to get pula sick back in January before the whole transfer ban and they managed to get Kovic to who did pretty well and Pula sick is a great talent. He's no hazard that's for sure but he will. He will get an uplink time and I think thank you produce and contribute well to Chelsea the season and also I'm excited to see callum Hudson. Oh Joy I love that kid and I think he can be really something special in this league now that hazardous out him in him in Pula was sick if they're not playing one of them will and I'd be really really excited to watch both of them. Play I honestly I want to be completely honest with that. I was kind of pissed off like I don't WanNa see him in a Chelsea Jersey and then I did during the preseason on like fuck like it's going to be awesome to see him week in week out in the Premier League like opening match against Manchester United. I really hope he starts like that's going to be such drama and action like in the season only like what like about the two weeks away like fifteen fourteen days away. I'm posting this on a Saturday so I guess a will be like about two weeks away. So we're you know coming up on the season really quick <hes> i. I WANNA end this with a couple last minute questions. <hes> do you see any other crazy transfers going down before the beginning of the season for everyone. Do you think like his name Marquette done. Is Paul believe like what have you been hearing or. What do you feel as of right now? <hes> I I believe that Hamas Rodriguez <unk> while he's definitely leaving around Madrid but believe it or not yours truly a C Milan has jumped in to the conversation with Oh Amish Rodriguez. This happened about an hour and a half ago zero two hours ago probably and you know they're interested and they're trying to steal them away. From <hes> <hes> from Athletico Madrid and Napoli already pulled out because they didn't want to pay his claws. They didn't WANNA pay Real Madrid upfront front so it could if these are true I think Real Madrid would prefer to sell to see me Lon if they can get the money forward then sell it to us to their crosstown rivals Athletico Madrid so him him Gaballah. I think maybe on the move athletic also Yeah Athletico Madrid is definitely interested. <hes> reports came out today saying that debate would accept a transfer but it would have to be outside of city <hes> he does not want to play in Sydney opera anyone so and Paul Papa. I think he's pretty much out of there as well to kind of measure. Where do you think he lands Real Madrid? Oh Wow fuck Real Madrid so despoiled Goddamn. Honestly I'm not trying to get my Real Madrid fucking high horse right now but like this the stack so fast and you know I guess I get it. They have the name they have the prestige trophies but maybe I'm just suggested Arsenal fan and my former glories behind me <hes> really <hes> I just want to say thank you so much for coming on the show <hes> make sure to check out the red card report.

and catching up with you wasn't the top five leagues it's the top six leagues is that correct you explain yourself yes so the top six leagues well i mean there's there's league's only when there's

them on twitter at RC are yeah no i'm so excited because we've had a lot of fans of the show because mostly you know lads here we talk mostly premier league and that's and then sometimes touch upon the other certain talent that reefer this transition brewery who scored his seven hundred goal so would you like to comment on renaldo scoring his seven hundred goal before we get into his drinking eaten everyone's just having a blast and like even though like it was just kind of funny because obviously you're you on the podcast you said the two players that have just been absolutely superb legendary and if they were in two different eras guaranteed eight or nine portuguese i like to debate that the portuguese league is the fifth best league it's better than the french league i kind of disagree with that but i would say that the portuguese league is definitely the the after you invited me to go to the milan benfica game which was absolutely unreal we got the tailgate and have some amazing portuguese beer and stuff like that advocates in porto the combined eleven could you imagine so yeah obviously the portuguese league produces some phenomenal talent especially you know says the goat people like me but it's just amazing man seven hundred goals and share messy is gonna in a couple of years from now he's going to match elite have great youth academies and also the thirteenth sparked thing i would say just a slight tear below porton fica they have by far the best the best league in the world you know they have two great teams may fica import through they have you know they produce great talent from south america and even domestic underscore podcast from downtown providence providing you with all the coverage of the topic leagues in europe in more filled with phenomenal cast of people but i'm glad to have ruby he then it was just a fundraiser and i didn't even like like think to mention you but they were like oh where's that kid kevin from the from the soccer game and i was like oh shit these two played in the same time period against rival teams and went head-to-head real madrid and barcelona i mean we're syria you have a massive of joe i know he's a big event is fan you're a big AC milan fan we actually before all the first time i had you on the show we got to gillette stadium so thanks again for inviting me man i had a fucking blast and you guys were the whole family and everyone was so nice to me that i'm glad you enjoyed it man that's how that's how portuguese puts away goals like that's that's an insane number when you think about it yeah and those are all official goals it's crazy like just like tally that as well you know we live in an amazing generation rv regardless if you love hernaldo or hate him or you love messy or you hate him you know where truly blessed to see yeah yeah exactly but it's crazy a year in and year out just being so great for so long the consistency it's it's so key in whatever he's doing it's amazing whatever mess he's doing it's we'll never see something like this again no absolutely not but this is actually a great transition again my remember it was eight years this past years so my first question to you is we just had that big clash which you enlighten me about between vendors milan is it the year you ventas gets dethroned or what's going on in syria it could be it could be the year in midfield and when you watch interplay i know the last two games against barcelona events is they lost but they played a great game in the first half against bar one in the champions league they were impeccable and then they fell apart in the second half but it's barcelona you know entered aren't quite there yet straight pull on doors for both yeah wouldn't even be like close if they were in any other generation i mean like you were saying it's just absurd that it's very very difficult just like any other antonio conte team it it's very very difficult to come back when inter have the lead and then roma in fifth with twelve what i'm seeing here is syria this year is way more competitive than the premier league seeing as liverpool's eight points ahead like i guess dean romolo lukaku even alexis sanchez we haven't really seen too much but he was a perfect guy just to come off the bench and just you know put in a few minutes take just made incredible improvement since last year um they picked up on nickelodeon allah and stephon stephan ascendancy odd diego looking at the table right now you've went in i over inter milan nineteen points interbred eighteen atalanta at sixteen napoli at thirteen in fourth like definitely jumped up and since years past absolutely yeah he's the perfect guy he's the perfect guy coach intead right now especially with after all the acquisitions that channel team during the euro's in two thousand sixteen this he's he is a tactical genius he's obviously a little bit more defensive and those man i could've brought him along so you already an honorary portuguese guy man they they loved you and you fit in just just well just about everyone was so nice me like love that team again like for or maybe for the first time so i'm a big antonio contests dan and that's you know is he also one of the big reasons that they've in game is on fire today rui since rinaldo does play for you ventas and is at the top of the table in syria gimme a little recap of how syria is going sleeping i've had issues with anxiety over thinking all of those things and i've been searching for anything that would help well then i discovered feels

just collapsed get fields delivered to your door every month and go to save money on every order and you can pause or cancel at any time and feels they have me feeling better my best this ago scores at the CEO the game winner so it was an amazing game it was back and forth but towards the second half and towards the second half in after the injury was all all you venice what my next question is going to be adults eh they're getting very very close they're on the right track but new manager correct antonio conte is coming in and i i mean i love him i am a big antonio conte guy like he actually made me like they collapsed and they couldn't get any sort of rhythm going and it's a very very rare occurrence of an antonio konta team being up a goal and you guys are it's an actual competition vent is running away with it as a feel as though they've done and what is it eight years in a row seven years in a row now i maybe like the same in the bundesliga with fire munich you know i i'm just i i would love to see a change because i feel as all the top leagues so it's really amazing what he's been able to do and they have an amazing amazing youth academy one of the best in italy anti whose only sitting three points behind you a two points behind inter they were such a special story last year what is their deal i know there's a lot of people even here in america we had one of our writers here for but ella who's a box to box who's a complete player can go both ways staying with same with sexy and broza vich right in front of the back three in the first thirty six minutes even though you venice snuck one away real early policy bala goal in the fourth minute i believe but inter looked is club i it's definitely coaching i think gossiping is one i think he is will definitely last year he was the best coach in city i think he's a better coach than unable to manage the team and if you look at the the salaries of all the clubs in city are at the launch dr are thirteen so that's also that's also another major factor i'm assuming yes splurge yeah it's just the able to splurge a little bit on buying some like role players because they produce young players and then they sell them for top dollar like i did with conti who is now at eh you may deal with stress or anxiety may have trouble sleeping baby it's chronic pain and i want to tell you you're not alone and i've had issues losing and it all fell apart when nelson c. came off as an injury and then in the end eguaveon like he did a couple of years absolutely incredible and he's been great with the lanka he's a great dribbler he's not afraid to take anyone on all the all the creativity goes through him lads write a whole blog a whole article about like why you should love atalanta and i read it and i was like there's a lot of passion what is what is what is the magic behind is getting all these teams that are consists and now the premier league as well or one team to sits at the top and all the other teams are just not even close if you'll so interest pretty close we saw what happened the top notch and that's that's all it takes it's what a poacher is and he's a pure pure poacher and right behind him as papa gomez who's been asked ago when they finished in second place with ninety one points was they didn't have enough depth they looked worn out they looked burnt out they just towards the end of the the first match oh nominal i it was fantastic they were flawless and they were the the bigger and the better team by far but not believe there's definitely for roma i don't i don't know if it'd be fair to say for napoli i think they are very very good team they're just they're just hiccuping right now the way they played against liver ending cycle with them they're a great money ball team and that's how they get funds and they have a great coach who can just extract the best out of all these players it's a great it's it's an amazing story see milan what the hell is going on with your club a c milan firing their manager once again what is what is i mean fourth or fifth because i feel like that's been the story of napoli and roma for awhile now where they're like i'd like they're just they're kind of interesting but in the andy will win the big game is that fair to say because after a long season champions league games you have the copa the dalia all these games add up and you need to keep these players fresh legacy what he's been able to do with all these young players and just develop them and and even keeping players like duval pot who had over twenty goals last year in city i he was so so what do you think they're just too young is that's what standing in their way as vintages have too much talent what's stopping from interference dethroning event as just like they link up well and you know th they're great they've been playing so well and i think a lot of it the most credit has to go to gasperini the ways that's really like extreme statement but he's just so aware he positions himself so well as like anticipation skills are just like beyond crucial to them and he's like one of the best i like i i don't really know how to describe this in the box players in europe i know this is like like who the hell's juvonen season they coughed up points and that's how you venice ended up winning the title with ninety five points and i think if they had you know a player like lozano on the team they're just hiccuping right now they have a lot more depth than they than they ever had they still have a great starting eleven and this is one thing that they missed out on a couple of years hiring coach after coach and in the beginning it's the coaches fall but you know all of this all these you know these hiccups and i was talking i it's so funny i was intere- yeah i think they are a better team than enter they are a better team than enter because they have more depth inter you know i it could have boosted them a little bit so i think napoli's gonna end up finishing in second place i actually made a prediction he went bankrupted and he took a massive loan out to elliott management and he failed to pay the to pay all of his law is it from the ground is it from the top to the bottom the bottom to the top you go through it i'm not as familiar i just know every time i see a headline for easy milan it's not good years and years it's also like you know trying to get over that hump i feel as though because event is held on for it for so long that it's like it's like almost feels like an impossible task you know number one in their leagues year in and year out so it's all that revenue counts and that's why they can splurge but yeah i i can also see that and then i wanna move down the table to napoli and roma are they doing the same shit whether they'll play exciting they'll do some stuff but in the end they'll probably end up awesome nice players on easy milan right like a couple that are at least you know pretty decent so like what is it more ownership not taking accountability breaking even they're not paying their bills practically well i want to bring that up are you just pissed that you guys got you know punish but then you see like the man all these players absolutely did nothing and this is why milan are in the current situation with f. f. p. they're not you know they're just they're not they're not queen five or six teams like it was last year okay well i i know this is gonna pay new rui and this is no offense we need to talk about it we need to talk about is with a c milan all these letdown disappointments were all due to the board we're all down to the board making poor decisions you know this you know things get swept under the carpet a little bit because they are who they are in milan aren't aren't what they used to be yes it's starting to what we see manchester united is really resembling what what's been going on milan for the last six years yes well for the for all those years meal on never really had a clear project this is even before just a couple of years ago to the to a chinese investor i forget his name is li it was lee and he almost bankrupted the club what asthma they all came from there and the the head director of the like goes out and scouts all these young players said that only him and years old he won a player of the tournament in the africa cup this year where with algeria where they won the african cup oh i think is just is in the same position as not only what where two years ago where they have a very good starting eleven but they just don't have enough depth on the bench and they let them all go and they let them all go without without a good replacements and now that they sold the club f- f- plugin identity yelich an identity and a sense of direction something that would attract players to go to the club and now they're back to win ibrahimovic jiaguo ceelo were in their prime and they were sold to PS g in the same year the year right after they let pierre logo on a free to you vent is like the PS pianist like that's kind of fucked up right yeah but it's like they can spend it because their revenues are just so much so much greater than ours now they have the champions league revenues and man city and PS g they're you know they're broadcasting revenues just through the roof there in the champions league they finished owns in time and elliott management ended up taking over the club and when lee was aaron one summer he spent over two hundred million euros on players sense whenever he touches the ball whenever he's he's you know in the game you see this potential you see like an MVP like and hopefully the new manager that milan just hired seven up yolly will play him a lot more and you know i it's just you can so in the end it's going to be event is on top then napoli and then insert third and then fourth place it's just it's gonna be it's gonna be a toss up who else oh rafael leo who is a an amazing amazing young prospect who came out of sparkling youth academy in portugal and now lucas bucket da you know a lot of young players and it's just all about extracting them and getting system to work because last year they were just one point to do that i feel like this year and last year i know it's been a disaster this year but over the summer i thought they did pretty well in terms of buying you know those are three key players that they coulda kept and the legends he had not even key players legends to the game legends to this generation i mentioned before spotting as the best youth academy in portugal and you know they're responsible for for basically all like the majority of the players that that this thing of ours today is wednesday october six away from making the champions league making a champions league spot and this year on paper they're better than last year it's just finding the right system that works a c milan and also was AC milan and also muttiah kovanda went to you ventas and now he's a AC milazzo i it just it's a never angela this kid and a lot of players comparing him to the to the brazilian ronaldo really have they have a lot of young players like romagnoli of the starting lineup of the portuguese team in in two thousand sixteen they all came from there the majority of them louis figo and cristiano renaldo hundred employers ended up buying and crew niche who both played for employee and believe it or not there is a really really good player is about twenty one or twenty two why is an arsenal fan who was one point away from getting into the champions league i feel your pain i feel your pain reliever i'm right there with you over time listeners take advantage of your special offer order now where the best players to lead this academy and we've seen leon play this year and he's so promising the game like the game changes when he's on the pitch so what so what has to change do you think it just isn't as star with the ownership SP from the top start from the top and work its way down or like i mean AG today you play you win you get paid arsenals actually good though people people been blown i mean we're one point behind with mybookie enter promo code overtime and mybookie dot AG and they will match your first deposit again promo code overtime visit my bookie dot steve ninety one points so you know so whenever someone is pushing events cinemax they just they pull through so any other i mean games coming up soon that i should definitely check out i don't know anything that's coming up soon i wanna see i see lasi overseas if you look at it any other any other year napoli would've won the screw that they would have won the leak with ninety one points that's an insane amount of points to nog liverpool latte the last year it's a very competitive league the e. p. others six very good teams there's so so is there anything else very well over there and so if your team has really a team to look out for it's an exciting team so i don't know how far or how long this is gonna last but ella who who coached milan before gattuso was hired everyone thought that he was gonna get sacked by the end of the year and he's actually been doing very ends has dropped points this year they be me on they actually beat the shit out of meal on so they've they've been playing very very well and people thought that their coach monte are exciting to watch okay well thank you i really this has been awesome because i love bringing on guest because i don't know fuck all i don't know shit about syria so this is terms of story line if i must american syria fan like what what else should be looking out for this season is there any other teams i like is adonta or one could be fun but i know eventually inter-napoli are going to play each other very soon that's going to be you know tape where who's really going to challenge you vent this i think is an event is going to lose a game this year what the hell so who's going to beat them who are kind of very similar clubs in terms of style play and like you know management so you know maybe different eyebrows in july klopp but gonna be the battle i i think that's gonna be the team that's really going to challenge event as i think that game is going to be very meaningful it's going to be you've noticed in your who like they're going to be fun to watch or like could make like a sneaky run-up to like the top four top six i would say of as much revenue and income or they don't have as big of a of a budget as the rest of of europe all the european big teams and if it wasn't for them it's been eventers not gonna do it now they'll they'll drop they'll drop a game or two for sure but you ventas as long as there's someone there pushing them to the to the so somewhat competitive over the last eight years when you've as just dominated in the leak i would you say that cool body is max event this will win it'll be very difficult to beat them we saw that two years ago when they when they won the league with ninety five points and nominally one what finishing second one nine checked and get finding all these players just making it work you know i it's it's that's also an amazing story because not lease the only team that that has made a competitor you know i always forget about enchilada and he's like still like he gets you still like overlooked all the time and he's one of the best managers ever just kind of ah gets me excited and then i realized that i got an ESPN plus account from the fellow ladd who listen to the show watching some syria is there any interesting allie thick boys kula bali is just a brick wall i think he's a little bit i think van dyke a little bit more completely the report last year it was actually like that we're the pool had the most points ever to win the league what this sucks nationally napoli although he could be i mean they have all the tools they have so much depth whether it's in in the back goalkeeper greatest defenders ever as someone who's you know like mao denia your club you know no offense EPL's never really had like i mean xena burri right they got frank that they got frank robbery and kevin prince boa tang and in last month review using what what the president and the owner delayed antiques has been able to do since napoli went bankrupt and towels and six was just you know building this you know that's just the different level of defending it's just the art of defending when your name those players yeah just like they're in a league of their own literally one player of of the month instead he played really well they drew against major events which is the only game where you're at is probably the second best defender in the world he must be up there right yeah it's it's him in in van dyke just big meaty boys i love him but i think van dyke a little just a little bit better but in terms of defense they're just incredible is it like really piss you off when people savers dyke might be one of the for neil kneels demand he says is it a coincidence how after the lies disgust a horrid actions of the belarusian fans yesterday which we talked about i it's it's admirable but really i have some fan questions i don't want to keep you waiting so we're gonna end with this are you are you ready well obviously the belarusian FA you know definitely listens to lads obviously we make our way all the way to bulgaria before the pod but he said he wasn't too familiar with the whole england bulgaria incident but i'll continue the question that we'll talk about it the he says when he is in terms of like that yeah like that offensive game you know cool bali is decent with the ball at his feet have you felt uefa hasn't really taken enough against racism i mean we me and martin talk about in our own show about syria and italian fans especially flipping people off it was horrid behavior so it's good that uefa is actually taking action charging the fans like there is something being done besides saying like of midfield strikers wingers everything they have everything to win it's just all mom it's all a matter of getting there and just finishing the job you've the champions league it's going to be to rinaldo for sure yeah i that guy just forces champions leaks he just wait it doesn't matter what it is pains yeah i i i mean i feel i feel that uefa has implemented some you know you know bylaws and law all time i wouldn't i put like rio were vintage or someone got just i might be biased because i don't care for john terry that much so yeah he's phenomenal he's at a club that i don't want us to call napoli a small club because they're not they're they're actually very big it's just they just don't have been had history so do you feel so uefa should be taking bigger steps instead of just making this half ass attempt to just making these weird marketing unicef cam i'm john terry was great don't get me wrong but he's nowhere in the same echelon as like maldini but as the day kinda varo nesta likely category right cagliari eddie yeah yeah yeah yeah how they've just been horrible in recent years or have fans are forfeiting or a teams that have fans chanting these racist rhetoric or horrible fucked up stuff that they should have their teams anyway the a quick one more question about syria which is more of a champions league question do you think you ventas has the tools to win the champions league this year i mean they bought rinaldo for that reason it's kind of tough because you're punishing the team and obviously the majority of the fans and team itself like aren't participating in that they they they will deem it wrong it's we've had great defenders slow john terry's consider the greatest EPL defender of all all right i'm going to make this happen we're going to win he has like a very like michael jordan s to whom he's like he just has his drive to just like unrelenting just like no matter what but yeah i was obviously we talked about this in the last pot how awful it was to see them doing nazi salutes chanting horrible things every him sterling had signs all your favorites all in one place and with the contour remote you can use your voice to fund them on live tv on demand and streaming apps like netflix prime video and win the champions league is the one hub they haven't been able to get over in quite some time and and they keep losing in the final so hey is this the year that you ventas wins it with obviously you vent this doesn't add that champions league DNA but they have the king of the champions league on their team and if it's if it's anyone to to win you've entered yeah i'm ready all right first question comes from ex ex big baller sixty nine execs asks he says i i know yeah that's fancy doing all the racist chanting like should be punished or the game itself should just be like you know cantor from cox has after the lions talked about the president of the belarusian FA stepped down in the US for president wants a wage a war on racism echo echo james or finding the federations of the the international clubs you know which would probably force them to you know you know upgrade security or or do a better job finding who these people are identifying them and banning them or give them a a warning awesome oh sorry i it's just got i think the italians and even the germans would beckenbauer they were just it's it's happened it's not as bad as as the italian league but the way the EPL the teams in the league itself reacts was that you know you cannot have like these chance the referees have the right to stop the game should forfeit as well what do you think about that like teams times violence and stab all kinds of crazy shit before and after games even in the stadium they can identify these people uh and who's responsible for all these five yes yes yes because they identify all the hooligans that are you know raising havoc and committing crimes and the identify them either give them like a warning banned for six months or a year at first and then if they do it again just ban them for life in response to it is far better than than the italian league and this is a problem like they're they have the technology to figure out who who's doing what oh stop racism are just like whatever marketing campaign they put out there so you're not familiar with this but you get kind of the gist will AC milan reach double digit owners since twenty ten by twenty thirty double digit owners or i guess then to the team that's out there i mean the bulgarian captain i remember yesterday was going to the fans shouting at them like at the fences be like stop please stop this is funny minority that are just acting like barbarians and they think it's okay and it's definitely not the next question that was great thank you the third one in the last three years this is the third order so are we what we say in like the how many owners are we going to go through for the match link would that be too extreme i mean at one point you got to draw the line somewhere right it's tough it's tough i mean forfeiting the match is you know it's not fair for the players it's not fair for the coach you forfeit the match for the team that has the racist fans like like do you mean that like the team that has like the racist at first and then the second offence you're done like your how and this is something that i applaud and i love about the EPL yeah there's going to be racist incidents for c. cox dot com for details forfeited no they get zero points in the team they were playing gets three like something the profit but yeah i think probably just one more i hope okay well it's a an owner that knows about the author doing and actually cares about milan not just some you know company they took over some idiot couldn't pay his bills so we don't you know i think that that's the best way to do it but punishing the team itself under oath even the the the administration the directors now reeled in your fans that are bad yeah you know i think uefa should probably do something as an like you know finding the team that's not a that's not a reflection on the players it's not a reflection on the coach it's not a reflection on the federation of bulgaria or the people itself it's just this data extreme we're that counts as a loss i think that's i think that's a bit extreme because it's it's just a minority i'm still undecided about the whole thing you know what i mean so like when the captain of your national team is doing that like it's gotta mean like he's doing everything he can exactly the inconsistent and insecure team it's not a team that that i would ever be on winning against really anyone even a bottom even a bottom but i do think something's gotta happen like and if it has to be like if one team has to take the bullet i mean i mean i'm not saying relegated team but i'm saying like yeah you get a loss buddy because you haven't stefan l. shadowy through the transfer market over the summer that was their best offensive player they don't have monoliths their best centreback and they don't have tottenham lester and then i don't manchester united still in the middle there is managing areas such a pain

LADS#164 - LADS UPDATE

"All right. No music. Just this is an announcement, maybe a few rant, but just let you guys know that lads will be taking a little vacation. I leave on a flight this morning to Venice, and then I'm going to like Albanian Croatia. You know, all those countries that have been having civil wars for the past twenty years. You know, that's all you really know about them and Luca Madre JR. Hey, we got that. God, it's like eight thirty in the morning. My throw is really raspy. I'm sorry. B M. This is just let you guys know that. I'm going to be on vacation Martin's busy pretty much putting a house together. So no new lads episodes to the first week of July. But I'll still try to post, you know, some spicy memes sommes on the social media tweet. Awesome stuff. I don't know how what the WI fi situation is, you know, cruises, like fucking lie sound so fucking privilege rate there. You know, like cruises. They have different like WI fi data plans and shit like that. So I don't know what it is. But I don't really spend on plan on spending that much money. God my throat is so recipe this morning. Yeah. That's pretty much. The major announcement also wanting to do a quick shout out to all the people writing for lads Robert Sweeney. Brian Lino Logan Smith. Dylan. Lucas we had a response by a fuck. What's guy's name? Hold on. You stay right there. I don't know even having a lot of writers, come on the lads podcast. So that's been really cool. So if you want to write for us, just send me a blog K Pettit. Six one hour gmaiLcom. I usually post them within a dab in bad. The past couple days, people have been sending me blogs, but a new one should be going up this morning by rob. So rob. Some writing some really, you know you're at one about the playoffs in EPL and his position was that he was totally against against it. And I actually did a whole pie cast with him and the fucking Skype of course and pick up my microphone. So I couldn't it was just unusable. It was essentially sounded like Chernobyl. It was just like. Like just fucking nothing. But. Find the guy's name anyway. There's been a lot of people writing for us allies, and that's been really, really sweet. Thank you guys. We also got new t shirts that I designed has our logo and a front on a black shirt, and then traditional man with a moustache on our social media, if you wanna check it out, got a lot of good responses, people seem to be really digging. So I plan on place in that order when we get back. So as I fucking throat. Anyway. What else is going on? Oh, yeah. This whole neymar thing has been really pissing me off this whole like him, just being crybaby and once out of PS g when he wanted to go there like no one forced him to go to PS g he wanted to go there to get out of the shadow of messy. And now Barcelona really wants him back, which I don't know why like like you like unless it's like he will be second fiddle to messy like. The guy has been nothing but just the disappointment at PS g like really like they bought him to go farther in the Champions League. And they're still not anywhere close and is off the field allegations and shit. He's got like, and the guy is just been just these, he's got such a punishable face now. Like, I don't know. Like. I'm just like when I see neymar as this fucking guy, he's just like this guy now you know what I mean? I feel like he'd be like, you know, finger gun guy, I don't know. Maybe he went to PS Gino was talking about him and his sister. I don't know. Oh man. No, no. I guess Barcelona. I mean, you would pick him over grease Mun terms of talent. But I mean if he's going to be such a headache, like I like grease men more, even though he's kind of, in that whole like, you know, neymar like playing for like fame shit like, you know, did a whole documentary like I will not leave. And now he goes, I don't know. Maybe because there's more leadership at Barcelona than PS g obviously. I mean, at least Barcelona has a culture and a history compared to PS gee, maybe they'll be able to keep him in line. I don't know. I mean when MSN was absolutely like at their peak. It was unstoppable, in mazing to watch him Suarez a messy. I mean trouble winning unbelievable goal record setting is like one of the greatest trio's we ever saw play. So I like to see that entertaining fucking soccer. So that'd be kinda cool. Oh, what do you guys make this? Someone posted the order of, like how to rank all the Premier League leagues and THEO, stop sign mcadoo fucking with my shit. And I thought he was right. But the our Facebook did not agree people lost their goddamn ship. It goes one Premier League dot dot dot to Lally three Syria dot dot four Bundesliga five league overeats. This is the only correct order. I him this is what he says DO, stop it. God cats are fucking evil man. All they do is just plot and they look like they know more than you don't you hit that can THEO. The. Threw my keys. They were just sitting there on my fucking call on my little nice, Dan. Anyway, I thought this was the correct. I've always assumed this was the correct order, at least in my time, like, but everyone was saying the boondocks league is way better than Syria. And I was like. All right. See kind of an argument there, but people were very adamant that THEO, stop it. That boondocks league is way better than Syria. And I'm just trying to wrap my head around that. And it's kinda hard you know, like let's take the top two teams in Syria. We got you Ventas or top teams in both leagues Syria, you got Ventas embarking Munich, they just cancel each other out, and then we got like the second best team in the Bundesliga yet Dorfman. And then when you look at Syria, there isn't really a second best team. I just like a bunch of other guys who are really close to the Roma's Napoli's enters coming up there a AC Atlanta. I feel like I always pronounce that wrongly I wanna say Atlanta because his our boys and girls over at the unruly, gated podcast love guys. But I don't know maybe just biased because. Syria is just had world class teams over the years. And. Maybe because the Bundesliga got shit, rocked this year in the champion's league, maybe because I don't watch that fucking much balloons Liga man. I'm sorry. I mostly watch Premier League a catch, you know, the classics and matches on when you can me because, you know, Syria is be on the N network and most people don't have that. And I think FOX has the rights to boondoggles, more Americans watched the Bundesliga and there's more Americans playing there. Maybe there's like an American bias. I don't know because I still like I want to say Syria is better than Bundesliga. But goddamn, also, you can you can just replace Lee loon with any other league. There's a lot of people say, like, come on, I'd rather. I think I'd rather watch the Mexican LA league team than fucking league wounded on my fair. I didn't even put MLS MLS and they're fucking but the Dutch league in there. The Portuguese league even. God, what a fucking farmers league. Oh man. Also, what do you guys think about this? The moves valuable eleven people were pretty upset about this, too. And I kind of get the argument that like it's like the young eleven so like most potential going forward. So like, messy isn't on this list, Renaldo, which I think you've got to take that going into this, like okay, like messy Renaldo aren't going to be in this, because the age in are probably, you know, but this is the world's official or this is the world's most valuable Levin by some guy. He said, yono black Trent Allison Arnold Virgil Van Dyke globally, Andy Roberson goalie. Kante pulp, Alba, Debroy, Nana, Salah, neymar killing me bopping, which I think is a pretty fucking valuable. I mean you're looking at a couple billion dollars here. Right. All right. Maybe not billion maybe close to a billion but still like hundreds of millions of dollars right here. So Bobby will make an a shout for messy which I get like if you were to be sold in Barcelona. I mean, the guy he's like priceless. You can't put a price on him. I can't even fathom. I mean he would be like the first three hundred million dollar player even as age right now. I mean setting so many records this year. And I mean, we're not at peak Renaldo a Real Madrid. I mean, if you would have been sold, I mean, I think it would have been the same thing, I think just because he's what like thirty four thirty five now we're not getting up there in age. But we guys not missing a beat the guy still has a fucking eight-pack. He looks like he has an age to be. I mean unbelievable. What he's, you know, just one Syria. He also just, you know, one the Syria player of the year. I mean the guy is just a machine. The guy does not stop. So. Fuck my my throat. Yeah. So there's just a couple of my thoughts. Oh, shout, the Nico who came onto the podcast. That was really cool. We sat down and our last episode. At what we're Fatos Irish pub. That's where we were really cool. Shout, the Fatos for Linda sitting there with the Mike, I always get weird out when I do interviews and pubs I, I, I, I would just get out the stuff and then just start like being like, hey, like, is this cool? But now I just go up and ask in his fucking awkward. Unless I'm like, yeah. Sure. I even gotten free drinks before Tiernan. Aw. Give gave me in who was it Paul for man city Philly gave me free beers. That was sick. That was really, really nice. So. I don't know. Nick Nico is a really cool guy. Penn State, alum, he, I know he's like one of those guys have had interviews words just like kinda difficult where, you know, you're trying to like, you know, like feed them. Like we asked him a question, they're kind of, like, you know, give you like one word answers, and you're trying to you know, keep it going. And you're you're the one doing all the work I love interviews. When I guess, like ask a question and then they just go God, and he knew a lot about gambling because me and Martin kind just like picked up. You know from. Just us just, you know, trial by fire. You know what I mean trial and error? And the actually is really good insight, like I always always, like never bet on draws. And, you know, he said, sometimes, you know, draw can be good a West Ham Burnley game could be a drawl and, you know, the whole like oh, you think at team is do that works. A team can be do fucking facts. Man. So I was planning on doing a bunch of interviews and film them in while we're gone. But I was like I've been packing getting ready for Boston. I'm just like exhausted. Man. I didn't even want to do this this morning, but I do it for you guys. So you have a little update about what's going on with the show, but I move up to Boston and we'll still be twice a week interviews of new people more merchandise more blogs. I'm trying to get log ins for the guy I gotta talk to my website person Jess sh because it's like me just I get the blogs, and I'm going to put it in the pictures. And you know, if I can just give them log ins. It'll save me time and I know they want to get their blogs up as soon as possible. And I'm kinda like you know, the middle man, I feel bad, because I gotta go up. I guess I'm the final man. I don't know. Like I just want them to be like, hey, does this look good. I'd be like okay, and then they just post it. You know what I mean? Actually who knows mixing ice. Get a bunch of, you know, dick on my website could be fun. I really don't have anything else Paul GPA might be in a now women's World Cup is still going on. I'm getting more and more excited once we get out of these group stages to go knock out rounds US women's national team still can't be stopped in its. Unbelie. There's been like a lot of shoe VR. At least we know VR crosses, both genders VR has just been suck has had instances of sucking on both sides of the fucking gender spectrum. So that's good. Remember, guys, gender spectrum strew. Got our women seem so fucking good. Man. All right. Well, I'm gonna hold you guys here anymore, you know that we're going on vacation couple things have been on my mind. More blogs coming, also be doing, you know, social media and posts and stuff and trying to keep this thing you know from Saint game. But, you know, if a saying whatever less work, so. Oh, yeah. And I went. I didn't get to watch the US men's national team the other night. But so we won you know, like we should I was at karaoke singing. You know, here comes your man, Gloria, my own worst enemy, nothing's gone, stop bus. It's a little taste. Man, I'm gonna miss Philadelphia man. And it also would totally make sense like when we start as podcasts two years ago, our first podcast was about neymars transfer from Barcelona PSE. That was our first ever episode. It would only make sense that he would transfer back to Barcelona would both me and Marin have left the grey city, a flip Adelphia so all right, guys. That's the episode is a little quickie. We're going on vacation. We'll be back the first week of July stay tuned. For more hosts more guests, more blogs and make sure to follow us on Twitter, Instagram, wherever come hang out, and I'm going to go find my cat because he's probably not more shit ever. All right. Bye. Guys, love you. Some feel. Two.

LADS#163 - Neymar's Future, Premier League Shuffle, USWNT, and Gambling feat. Nico from CanIKickIt.Blog

"Ooh. No know. No, no thing. Two one. Hey, welcome into lot, America's Cussing soccer, or lads podcast, I am joined by Nico. You can follow him on Twitter at Niko guy. Oh Nico, man. How are you, man? It's good to be here. Yeah. We are in Fatos Irish pub here on fifteenth in the locus. Yes, Nico runs the Kenai kick, it blog pays of Philly also has been starting to his own podcast. He's trying to take on my turf. It's fine. I'm going directly for all your all your listeners. Yeah. All five. No me plugging my own podcast. Yeah. No. This is more. Todd -ception. No. This is good. This is good benico. Thanks for coming on, you came all the way out here from Westchester sick to come. Hang out first question Nico, you were talking to me earlier about the whole playoff system. There's a little like what's it called squabble on our social media, including play offs into the Premier League. What are your thoughts? These americans. These, these fucking stubborn red nosed Americans trying to play offs in the Premier League. What's your thoughts? So I this happened when some Manchester City fan, and this happened a thought popped in my mind towards the end of the season. And I thought. What I will Liverpool and city tie on points city's gonna end up winning the primarily because goal differential. Right. But I thought that's kind of annoying, and I felt like all right, instead of having, like, playoffs because I don't think that fits the system of the table. Maybe if you're tied on points, the team go into a home and away playoff if that place decides relegation Champions League Europa league or the title that way, it's like at the end of the show. Sorry, my brain a second Cup on things. Good sitting Liverpool tied at the top of the table, they, they would go into a home and home two legged. Oh, like a championship semifinal. No, I'm picking. All right. All right. That much money, the primarily would make off of those games viewership drama. Right. And it would just be unbelievable. And there's always space between the end of the primarily and FA Cup. And then there's Champions League but you can find time in that in that time to, to find to this filler right now. I mean obviously not like the women's World Cup in the World Cup and stuff like that. There's usually a month span where like we fit in, like an a two week span these extra games. I like that. That's actually pretty good. And like let's say relegation could you imagine the relegation playoff game? If they have the championship right now for who to get, you know, bumped up. Yeah, exactly. That would be good. Oh my God. What did you say like Saudi do it for relegation? Would you have the seventeenth playing the eighteenth team or or or like all three the relegation teams fighting it out? I feel like playing all the relegation teams. There's too many matches Robin. It would be sweet. I would love to just say primarily like no the players too many games. Right. But yeah. Imagine if like seventeen and eighteen were tied on points and like, all right tied on points, but it seemed could no they have ten better goal differential, they're going to be more safe. But imagine if it was just like no we're gonna play games because breaking up those two places should come down to head to head who's better than the other rather than like. Oh, if you can see six goals, the city scored I will have to say there is a big Chilean fan base right now chalets playing them in the COPA day America to Brazil Copa America in Brazil in Brazil. Yes. Did did joy score score? This is your life. If you don't just great podcasts. Yeah. Honestly, don't watch don't look at the results of this game. We'll tell you by the end. We're just going to play by play by play right now. It's going to be the masters. I'm Joe buck. You're I don't know. The other guys. I don't know. I'm jim. Nance gymnast, yes. Slide in there it's going to be perfect. Me too anyway. Yeah. Would be good. I mean I feel like the relegation battle towards the end of the season like we pretty much know who's going in and out sometimes other times it's like whoa. Come down the last day like this year Mansi Liverpool who's gonna win the Premier League. I know that'd be fun. But what about you say all the soccer peers you say, like don't touch the game for me? I'm not a soccer periods like me, like I'm over VR. He get the game more accurate. Would you say to them like this is perfect don't touch it? I think that it's a good balance between the pilots. I like to call the proper football man, right on a cranky old old dudes in England who yelling at the sky. Yeah, exactly. It's a it's a balance between. Yeah, you're adding some sort of playoff, but you're doing a two legged tie. They love. Yeah. Like they even if you tie in the FA Cup you play again, rather than just go into overtime or anything, you know what I mean. Yeah. That would be really good. It's a good balance of like there's extra type of playoff but at the same time there is still the integrity of like that proper football man wanting to, you know what I mean soups them as well as suits people who want the game to kind of progress a little bit. No, I like that. I like that a lot. I know a lot of people will probably be upset. But I get I get excited like why not try and change the game. I mean, if it starting gets me, a lot of people say, like oh, it's thirty games this season. Dash should be enough to decide it. But sometimes it's like like we're Americans. We think there should be some type of like playoff system in, you know and store. All right. Next question are moving onto. There is a lot of talk going on of Manchester. United. Right now, especially Paul pug, obviously that's your city rival there. We think they should do obviously, I think Paul book came out the quote, was it yesterday saying, like he's ready for new, the whole like, you know, not saying they wanna go, but kind what he didn't has has been doing for the past, like five years at Chelsea. He saying he wants new challenges. It seems like the player does not want to be there. There doesn't seem to be a real future for the club right now. Going forward, all the who knows what's going on with all the and his ranchers what do you think of that? Whole situation should they get rid of them or what, what should they do? So me when pug, I left ventures I wanted him to come the city so badly. I think he's an amazing player. I think is total generational talent. He can do a lot of different things on the ball off the ball offense defense. Boxed box, you can shoot. He can pass the touch anyone. That's you know, it's amazing. But the thing is sell someone tweet, he said, I think it was our low. White tweeted today said, love him going scree. I miss him. I miss his voice Sunday morning. So when I'm hung over Sunday, Arlo, white just like soothing me back to. It's great because he's, he's got he's got that soothing. He tweeted he said, at the puck commentary said, I'm looking for new challenge. He said he doesn't seem like his heart is in matrix United and I said, why would it be right? You have no reason yet. You haven't had a coach who's consistently backed you first season. He Marino didn't get along. Right. He and all they haven't had a full season, and even doesn't look old as really tapping this potential. You also have the fans totally turning on you and you have a game. I don't mean they're up in the last game of the season. Game called like fuck off. Get out of here. Yeah. Exactly. First of all, that guys out align outta line. I don't I don't care how much money you paid for that seat. You don't go up to man on the street and yell fuck you to their face to a superstar because they're entitled they feel like they can. And that's the whole problem with, like sports fans nowadays, there's like they think they can do they can touch the players and they, you know, do whatever they want because they bought a ticket like no, like there's a set of rules. Go on going like you're say, yeah, there's, there's a line, you just don't cross and imagine being. A pug was position. You're in a world class player. Right. You get bought for the most money in a transfer ever at the time in new have to somehow live up to that as a central midfielder, mindue, which your stat sheets not going to be filled with goals in a SIS. Exactly. Usually at least. Yeah. And like hurting on ES goal, and assist record. And it's like it's ESPN you watch it doesn't like or Madre twenty one. The bound your. It's like obviously that still that's still very arguable on the key. Probably should have won it. Yeah. But what he does like off the ball. It's not like hockey where there's an assist for an assist. Yeah. And if there were then you'd see the product of center midfielders. Yeah. Exactly. But yeah, if you look at his position he doesn't have a director football in Edward or that, you know, he has no idea what he's doing. Yeah. The quote Louis von hall said a couple weeks ago. Edward has no clue about football, exactly. Imagine apparent imagine. If someone came out like the GM of an NFL team. It's that they have no idea how anything about football. It's like wait. What exactly the, the leadership and talks about him in United and asks is coming from the city fan, but on C United fans would say the same thing. Agreed. Why would wanna be there? Everyone's turn against him. He's got know it's everyone he's got his back up against the wall. He can easily just like I can go to a another big club be more successful in probably win titles, and you're not you're not in the Champions League next season. So and that's like your endorsements is like you know, that's a big part of players nowadays, you want to be on the champions, where the most is are seeing you that's hurting his money from endorsements as well and stuff like that. And like getting his brand is brand is hurt by being Europ league. So where do you think he goes, do you think it's a return? Event is return return is a Barscelona is a I think he would fit so, well, our Celona the problem is that is Barcelona gonna pay for them. Yeah, that's a good point. And also, we also spent so much money already hundred and fifty million dollars that much now. Oh my God. So I think Real Madrid is close to being done. I would hope so. Also can we talk about how they're the most boiled fan base, like they have one bad year now to mediate like people shit on, I'm gonna say, on man city, I've shit on man city, I've shit on PS g rightly so. But Real Madrid gets a pass all the time. I am done. I am done giving around Madrid APAC at one bad season. And all they do is wine and complain show up to the games and they're doing some of their best play for now. Don't even they've booed Rinaldo who on earth. Listen, I've never been a huge although hundred respect for him. Yeah. We believe game. And he's become a great pro over the years matured. Yes. But you don't boom. Yeah. They boot Gareth bale after east champions a goal like I don't want you. I don't you the man, one you Champions League. Copa del Rey goal what he just ran around boost gets or whoever wasn't a line and scored the game winner in the? Oh my God, though. Reagan's against Barcelona. Yeah. Exactly, it was like this guy has one games. He's won your titles and you're gonna boom. You're right. They're just spoiled. And so back to poke you've act we were saying he'll be perfect. My little Real Madrid Rams. I've been mean to get off my chest. It hasn't been on the air just been mean to get that out. So you think you worked perfect at Barcelona, but you're unsure of they're going to spend because already looks like they're getting grease men. But that hasn't been finalized yet. So I mean, he says he wants to go, but Barcelona gonna pay are go going to let them leave. And then you had the whole Jau Felix thing today, but we'll get into that in a little bit. But back to the only places I think I'd see him fitting, right? Not where he could go with money and paying keep fit at city not gonna ever happen he'd fit Barcelona, right? I think fit around Madrid but they. Can't drop one hundred whatever million dollars on exactly at that point. He could go back to you, then twos. But does he fit sorry system? Yeah. Don't know. He's in a really big pickle, where he's like of want to leave, but I don't really have a good place ago. Yeah. How sorry worked with another French midfielder, playing him out of place. I don't know how to spend a whole podcast on how Kante was put out a position that is a crime. I'm that is a crime how he played Nagoya Kante this entire season. He still did so. Well, give contact good guy Kante who's the most likeable football in the world. I would have to say has to be Conti one, maybe so laws. I think so. I think maybe it's just Liverpool. Hey, bill. You can't. Hey, salah. Listen, I'm a city fan. I don't like little pool Salah's perfect. Thank you, right? I mean, he's I'm sure there's United fans listening right now who are like, you know, throwing flipping their tables pistol is probably one of the most N like that whole squad in general, pretty, pretty likable guys money. Yeah. Mine is the Kante of always smileys mileage Illustrated's teammates goals. Selfish. I don't know. I'm not trying to do a love fest. I mean I'm just trying to avoid talking about arsenal as much as possible. So that's just a whole different type dumpster fire. All right. Let's move onto your team man city you guys coming off trouble winning year. Elsom how's it feel to win is awesome to win? Honestly. It's the weirdest season because we wanted domestic trouble, which is insane. And like we just like one just another primarily, really, because you have Liverpool in the champions, which is great. I wasn't mad about that, but it is like another team in the league one almost the equivalent to the three trophies you one, exactly. And because FA Cup kinda lost its you know mystery magic and we wanna final six nothing. Yeah. Which, you know, I would rather want to one do what I you know they, they went all out that game. The League Cup is bullshit. Either of those runs that city had on the way to the final. We didn't really face anyone that great doesn't take away from winning the trophy. Yeah. Exactly. That silverware. I mean Tottenham would be dying for any of that. Let me tell you dig. Okay. But yes, where do you go from here? You guys haven't really made any marquee signings yet. But it's man city to hear about today know what happened. Chow consolo. Oh, right back for through seems to be agreeing to terms with city. Oo in the works been a figure, yet, have you seen any money? I think it was like a ho I don't know. I don't wanna know. Check on my phone. Well, I guess the market for right backs fullbacks in general. There's not that many good ones out there. I rocket because it's one of the game becoming one of the more important positions in all football. And luckily Liverpool lucked into two of the best ones, aren't they? Over again. I'm not trying to do a love pets Liverpool, but it's hard not to it's hard not to and their outside backs. Yeah. I don't have a figure, so. What's his name? He seems pretty good Salo then to right back for a couple of years. He gets forties. Pacey. He's brilliant on the ball which balls in he's fit pep system perfectly. My opinion doesn't need to spend right now. What possibly keep the gang together seemed like a good guys KGB will be healthy youthful offseason to just rest up and isn't it? Awesome. Mckay. Devi like have not like a bad year. He's just injured year and still like domestic trouble awesome. Like this should scare a lot of primarily teams. Absolutely look at Bernardo Silva becoming almost next to probably who I always get this debate who's the best player man city right now. You think is now what do you think is for him? Oh, that's tough. That's right. That question who's the best player or what's the one player? You would buy. From city who'd be the one player, you'd be the most upset with losing. Bernardo just because he's so young talented. Yeah. Then again Rahim's only he's twenty four Bernardo's. That's so kills me that he's younger than me by year. He's my Rahim was born the same week as me really we're both twenty four. Breath brothers awesome. He's yet to respond to any, my birthday Deums. Well that's rude. I'm going to send him a letter one day, but I guess you guys are pretty set. Even like a Guera was getting up in age. You don't really you have Gabriel Zeus right there. I would say the only time only thing we need to upgrade would be maybe some centreback depth losing company Dino, like he's getting older. Defense amid I'm thinking, ten guy in them Bella from Lille. Oh, yeah. That would be nice prototypical like the Makalele from France. Back in the day, down central defensive namedrop. Sorry. My is behind all my hits. If you're at home right now you have your laptop open, go to YouTube dot com, and search Makalele, and you'll find out that an entire position was created. It was essentially took it over. He said this is now my yeah. Wow. What about Liverpool? What do they need Liverpool? So it's going to be, so we can Bill being agreement. It's man city won a Liverpool one be there in their own tier in the Premier League. And then just everybody else. Would you agree? I would say, so unless Spurs make a splash in the transfer window, which I mean look at their history is probably gonna happen by the time for Spurs, suspend if you're Daniel Levy, if you wanna keep podge, I think you have to appease him guy took you all the money they got from the going to the Champions League final come paid. Well, no, you haven't paid the same because the loans but yeah, I think I think. Put the pedal on the metal Spurs transfer right now. But right now you're right. There's just a, a one a one b then there's just a drop off, like it's like these guys, there's a bunch of other do just do. And I think that that's a lot to do with. Yeah. Those teams are so quality unbelievable. But pepin Klopp are just the rest of those teams. They can't beat those managers. No. Right. And it's funny. How pepin Klopp they have trouble beating each other. More having trouble beating cloud. Yeah. But it's just domestically didn't hasn't har- has an ornament it. Yeah, it really hasn't. But I mean if you're Liverpool where do you how do you improve like maybe a new like I love the front three? I don't think you'd replace. Any might need death. Let's say one of those guys goes down for somewhat of an extended period of time. Katie injury. Klay Thompson is out. You have a Riga. He's, he's great. Right. He stepped up has goals lend you play a rig for like three straight months and having constantly produce. That's a big if that's a lot that's asking a lot. So and also, I think they need a creative midfielder. They need like a central tacky, like Katina. Yeah. So, but also, I was thinking, like it'd be perfect who's been kind of, like you know, this like travel man is wonder HAMAs Rodriguez. He region trying to sell. I think he would be Munich by, he's on loan from Real Madrid. So, but he's at buyer Munich, I think you'll be a great you've been a journeyman. I think he'd be a great with Fabio and Jordi right next door. We came right up there them be around. It'd be able to like unleash the front three thing go by using they need like a central attacking mid for more creativity for the front three because you got for being you're holding down central. You've got Henderson kinda just kinda do everything you need to middle. And then you're right, you need that one person that those two guys go go green for the front three. Yes, number ten. They need a number ten right? Playmaker. And Katina lasting you wanna Sala dropping into have to receive and you saw that a little bit this year. He. Started coming down to receive the ball a bit, which was affecting his goal scoring ability in being in the box the right time, which isn't a problem when you've, you know. Monitor for menial as well. Yes. I saw that HAMAs might go to Napoli. Really? It'd be kind of shame, I think he'd fit perfectly there. He'd make that team really good. But like you kinda wanna see him come to the prime. Really? Yeah. I wanna see him weakened weak out. That's why I'm so excited for Christian pool sick and, you know man, I'm so excited. We'll, we'll get to that. We can talk some Chelsea second. That's also a big like mystery managers United like what is happening there like? Yeah. Liver poor a really good spot. I feel like maybe another centreback, but even then, like Virgil Van Dyke makes up for whatever, like, makes whatever centreback next to him so much better, Joel Matic. Just started a championship final centreback, and they kept the clean sheet like in the Liverpool were just chilling. I mean Tottenham could not do anything in that final third. I mean Alison obviously has some really good saves night game was fairly not tested. I always like the seventy something minute. Yeah, exactly. Not to like, not ideal. If you wanna wanna champion. No. No. Not really. I mean you can talk a lot about this. Zeke finally should they've started. Kane did the first goal should have been a I go what's up. What do you think about that Cain thing? I don't think he should've started, I think Paci no has become, you know if canes healthy he's in this mentality that he has to play him. When Luke is more has been nothing but your clutch man, this whole champions. Run, you got us. Our lucas. And you saw Lucas so disatisfied on the sideline you could tell he was like, what the fuck and then you spec to be to come on here in the last twenty thirty odd minutes and making something happen, when they're just sitting back. Cain was just like standing around like, not sure what the do he wasn't. I don't think he was fully fit or like game fit anyway. So I was really we're used feeling the same thing I felt kind of the same way I initially had the thought of if he's a hundred percent and not just one hundred percent like he's healthy. I mean like training in your like he's hurricane you plan. Yeah. But if you play him, he's probably not ready to go. Full ninety or full one twenty just in case. Yes. So what do you do from there? Do you play on the first sixty five then get him off, and then bring on Lucas not start him and bring him on at sixty five, and then he can make an impact? Instead he stretched them out for the full ninety and I don't think Cain was able to just kind of have fifteen twenty minute span, where he said, I'm going to go all out. He tried conserving his energy didn't get involve as much eleven touches in the first half. Yeah. I barely saw him use a ghost. I have. I mean a lot of time wasn't the ball, getting to him or you know, but I, I mean the only person really didn't anything sawn and he had some really bad touches the beginning a couple couple times. Yeah. Heavy touches, and I don't know. I love song. I think they're just like in this weird spot deli. Alleys hasn't really impressed me that much this season. I mean he's done some good stuff. And I anything like that spectacular. So when I was worried about was is, if potch was like, okay, well, if I start them and he doesn't do, well, people will be like oh, shoot you have started him. It's a lose lose situation. Right. But this one side that loses more and he doesn't play him and they lose. You said you should have started. We'll also England's golden boy like the English fans would have tore apart the Spurs. Yeah. Actually, like north London. Like love him. That's they have that song like he's one of us. Hey regain. He's one of us. Don't Spurs fans? Don't Google arsenal. Harry Kane jersey. No, don't ever, don't know. Don't that not needed. Definitely needed. Well, that's a good transition. Let's talk about arsenal what the fuck. What are we doing? So I wrote a season recap for international Champions Cup. Actually said brag. Shoutout. Jet Grimm's e in the crew over at is e give lads media passes, the try to give lads and Nico some media passes. I kinda I wrote about arsenal and it's weird. If you look at those if the season in a vacuum, it's not a good season, right? Six place, right? Yeah, fifth-place place seventy points, seventy points. I mean Europa league final loss. What did you look? They're saying Europe. League final long. Yeah. I would agree with that. But if you look at it as the body of work of going into the season I think if I told you you'd be fighting for a top four spot making Europa league final finding a really good strike partnership together starting to kind of build a new culture, which is not easy after having the same manager for twenty one year. Yeah. Exactly. I mean, they're still living in the shadow of Wang or so. I mean, and that's going to be a hard shadow to get out of. Yeah. I went to Penn State could tell you that replacing Joe Paterno was an EAS. Thing at Penn State football. It wasn't it was like where the hell what happens now? Yeah. Shit happens, where do we go from here? Be like when ballot check leaves the patriots the patriots make the playoffs but losing the first round the news, are you going to say, go ahead? Yeah, I think that it was a sexy success successful season. Yeah, I think things could have been worse. Could have been a lot worse. And Emory could have not worked out. You could have fired him two months of the season. Exactly. I think the biggest issue with arsenal right now is crunchy. He needs to figure it out. I mean like he's to invested in his other teams Manny see worried about what the LA Rams, and he's the Saint Louis blues who's blue. What happens when you put money in these other teams and even go to Europe league final? Of course he didn't. He's busy worried about his fucking hockey team. Brahma vich who's in exile went to fucking boku for the game. But cranky couldn't hop on his private jet and go. Yeah, I get otter by John's in the middle. God knows where. But this is team you own your European final. Yeah. I don't know American ownership has not been great for the Premier League if we're being honest. I mean for livable assize Liverpool didn't do any favors for my, my swan Swan's eat Manchester United not doing that. Great arsenal. So, so what do we need? Because my argument is the only two players that teams would wanna pluck or like two players that could start for any of the top six or like lock. Is that a bomb Yang? Can you name another player that could era? Jarara. Yeah. I can see terrar- Hanley. Because he plays the position that's so crucial to teams that a lot of teams are lacking. Yes. Right. I and obviously he wouldn't start for anyone of the top seven. Right. Because you have Ruben Nevis for wolves. Yeah I'm in love with but the other rest of the table, you look at that and you're like you probably can't name a really good Senate offensive midfield, or central midfielder, that is that young that good. And that energetic, you know what I mean? Yeah. He definitely has that like into Harare, kind of like. Well, that's fine. I mean, like he does have a very punishable face. He's up there. But yeah, you don't really see that kind of like Nagoya Kante pit bull. I'm going to get every single ball in a lot of like top teams anymore. But decides those three and I think you're maybe a fringe total, total fringe. I think he's only when that could be not in there. Someone could pluck any others. No. There's no no one else outside a Leno. Yeah. Leno's good. He has a higher ceiling than the others. Everyone else like Socrates, bust can signer bus stop feet, major, gosh, going from stuffing but we'll granted Jaka not a bus but not good. Not great consistent. Yeah. I mean, like one day, I'm like, wow. Jacques a boom great hit this like reservoir. Writ card the first one minutes in horrible giveaways Hector Bella in her. Rob holding I have a lot of hope for boating. I love raw boating you look around this. Ozo- Oto complete bust, gotta go. So I don't know. An apparently STAN Kroenke is not exactly giving us the budget for this. You know, I think it's only forty million is the amount. We're allowed to spend this transfer window when you're looking at the other major trade, what the hell to meeting teams of Real Madrid, where we used to when they're spending would you say, like three hundred million fifty million dollars. Fuck man So-someone hazards making a week. Is it four hundred plus one hundred fifty thousand dollars a week that I'd give like most of my Oregon's just for twenty years in my salary. Oh, yeah. Maybe ten years ten years of my salary. Want to give away. It's not it's not that much for me. Yeah. Arsenal is in a very weird place right now. And I like I think you're right. There's a lot of hope United getting raised culture change. We got work on our way for them because that was very bad. But end the English Indian good evening. Yes. Both. We've onto the other London club. Chelsea. Yeah. They're in a very weird state saris gone. He's going to Ventas Frank Lampard, which I think is going to be not the I don't think it's going to be a good managerial change. They have a two year transfer band, there to best youngest players are both heard Hudson, annoying left his cheek. What does the future hold for Chelsea football club this shocks and people I kind of love where Chelsea is right now. And I'll tell you why the expectations for Chelsea are so low fuck. You're right that they perfect spot. Be happy saris gone that can bring in Lampard and they don't have to do. Ends make them happy fans club legend all your thing is that he'll bring all these loans in Pula sick in and the guy that's managing you as a guy that's a legend. He's been the cubs forever. He knows everything. He knows a long leash he's going to be able to be comfortable because they know they're probably still going to. And they're kind of in that comfort zone of, like if let's brought in a really good manager, then all of a sudden it's like, oh, we're gonna greasier. No. Yeah. We should be good. And then they disappointed instead, it's kind of like probably not going to be that good. Whatever. Type of thing I think, for pulisic, our baby. Boy are American Hershey Pennsylvania love him, baby. Jesus. I think that this is if, if, if lamb. Morton comes in, we should say that right now. It's perfect for him. You got a club legend, I think, sorry, I think pulisic and sorry, imagine them in a room together. It's just like I can't neither yeah. Lamport I think we'll take them under his wing, teach him the ways of the club groom him. And I think it's a great opportunity for him to kind of ease into the primary league. Okay. And I don't know Franklin part is going to be good manager, but yeah, Chelsea for this next year or two, it might just be the perfect fit. Okay. Well, what, what about the argument that, like, you know, we have been you know making fun of United for the all thing about, like bringing in a club legend there is better managers out there. They probably could have gotten just because of the title alone because of the players anything like that. We even like shitting on United for it, like when Franklin park goes on a ten game losing streak aren't going to do the same thing hybrid ethically. Like, what if the what if it's all a gloom and doom, I mean, the guy's only. Similar. Yeah. Wouldn't be like kind of the same situation. I think the only difference would be that with ole is a lot more pressure for this past season will be for whoever takes the Chelsea job this coming here. Okay. I think Franklin part takes job. I think he's almost guaranteed unless they're like mid table to keep the job. Okay. I just don't see them panicking. I think United are very quick to make decisions because they have to appease their fan fan base. Yeah. They're the most like wealthiest team. Not only like like soccer team. But like team Ray world brain four billion in the stock market. Yeah, exactly. How many teams in the world of public stock? Not many not many now. And I think when they gave away the fulltime job, it was extremely unnecessary. There's no reason give them the full season as an interim prove himself, if you just give them the job. And all of a sudden it turns into that, you're creating your own mess. Yeah. Right. Why there is so much excitement is after the PS g win the wheel. Yeah. There was he's a club legend, you know. And then when things started going south. They're like, well, I mean, we kind made their mess. Yeah. So I don't know. I think it's gonna be interesting. I mean I would love to see Frank Lampard apparently, John Terry, Mike come with them from Aston Villa. Or he might be on the sidelines at the villa. You know, looking across at his former like that's cool. I don't know. That's just like like I wanna see Stephen g at Liverpool. I love Klopp, and then five years all the legends at their clubs. Yeah. Exactly. Unreal. Kloppers still. Yeah. I mean still going at unrig would be cool. I actually would love you'd like this. I think in three or four years. Let's say arsenal outgrow Emory. Yes. And our tests leaves city and he's been groomed by pets and migos arsenal and arsenal adopts a Arteta pep hybrid system for the gunners, I would lose my Schick. Those one of the biggest things when he left to my captain. I was like I was so upset. And now Petrocelli has left to go to Chelsea all these players. They leave arsenal they go to their six. I know. Well, these also players leaving arsenal also going to win titles and stuff. Yeah. Whatever. You know, I love his. Thank you to arsenal afterwards Chamberlain saying it's all for the gunners. You know, it's all it's all fine good, though. That was respectful Chamberlain was like, like face voice player, left city and play United in a final and one that was for the blues. I'd be like bucket. Yeah. Exactly. Fuck united. I don't know. I guess there's tasteful ways but are would be cool. I haven't even thought thought of like Patrick Vieira says he did grace of Newark. See. Yeah. He's niece now. Right. Got fired at niece ship. I don't know where is now. All right. He's a wandering man too. So I don't know. I have no idea where Alexa, where's Patrick Patrick? Vieira listening, destroying midfields, people early two thousand people listening with Alexis just got the answer. Did. So you're welcome. Really welcome, honestly. What's the whole y'all feel what's what's his name Joe Felix? Yes. So what's he's going? It is what it is. Monday, June seventeenth this morning report came out that go he's in Madrid and athletic. Oh. And he are just wrapping it up. It's about to. They're about to trigger his release clause one hundred twenty million euros shit outta here. That's that's crazy for letty. They're not one of those crazy, like Barscelona real man. You like they don't they don't they usually develop. Get really good deals. They kind of do like buyer Munich to degree does that a lot too. Did Chile score update she lay have scored again. Who was it? Vargas vargas. I like him on because he's got the pace like realize he's not that great. But like he's, he's very pacey fa player. That's my people to team tip. He's a he's a good grabbing fever. Yeah. She lay minus ones looking great great. Oh, we're we're going to gambling stuff at the end because the reason I'm Nico on guy put it out. Like, hey, I wanna have a new guest on NICO's like me. And I was like, all right. Let's come onto. And I knew from bio and stuff like some gambling. Hey, I'm more than that. Hey, I'm more than just a pretty face. I wanna ask you, some gambling questions. Please tell me about, Mr. Felix miss senor Felix in your. Young nineteen year old Portuguese kid start. I'm pretty sure he might still have braces awesome. Basically what he was has been FICO was always a young us player that was touted to be the next big thing. Okay. Beginning of the season. They didn't really play them. Sub men here and there late sub whatever. And then all of a sudden Benfica kind of was playing a lot of matches in the Champions League. And then he started playing more on the league to make up for the players playing in the Champions League. He starts playing and just start scoring and assisting and ends up leading their team basically almost all categories in playing almost half the season. Wow. And he's brilliant, and people might say, oh well the Portuguese league. Well, yeah but he's nineteen. Yeah. Exactly. And he's still also the Portuguese league Rinaldo a. Jill, Jill going crazy. Right now. Chilean fans chichi Leyla, which is one of my classics classic. The classic but yeah. Felix. Unbelievable. Everyone wants the summer everyone it just got an a hundred twenty million euro release clause, which is just ridiculous. And allegedly at let it go was ready to pay that today. Benfica two hours after that come out with a report saying, this is bullshit. It's hogwash. It's not true. And everyone was like, wait what major media outlets saying he was going the Gordian mirror. Everyone was like, literally by the end of the day is gonna go then been figure was like nen, the no no get out of here, not happening. So I have no idea where it stands think it'd be a great fit for athletic. Oh, I think he really well under Simione, if Greece Mun leaves he'd be a decent replacement. You can play striker. He can play winger. He can play that, that kind of Wayne Rooney drop in and create number ten, but also being that striker kind of role. Yeah. I think he's brilliant, and I think he'd fit really well lady, but yeah, he's, he's definitely a guy that's has a future. My question Diego cost. The eat him. I don't think he's got enough meat on the bones to sat. Okay. But then again, I wouldn't leave it past. It'd be more like a Phil Joe he'd eat more might eat them. Oh, ooh. That's actually a tasty young Portuguese players young Portuguese layer. Pretty tasty. Yeah. What's the one transfer that has, you know, the most by do you think will definitely happen? Grease men to Barcelona's been the big one name is allegedly leaving PS G out of all these rumors you hearing is there any that you're like, okay, this seems the most likely or you're like this'll be awesome? What's the most like this'll be awesome transfer this weeks ago? What is it hazard? Yes, these, yes. Good question. I wanna say neymar, but the problem is no one's going to twenty two million. Yeah. For just baggage. Yeah. Right. And we say his time. Yes, she has been a bus, right? Like in a way. Yeah, because I mean cool you one league everyone care PSE, if you to pretty much a guarantee unless you're Monaco, and you have him baba and Bernardo Silva, Mendi and you need to give them about in order to win league. Yes. So yeah but I mean even like for the World Cup. Did nothing good for his brand like rolling flopping. He's also really fragile you'd very fragile. But also I saw a whole I was talking about this on a recent podcast, ESPN AFC guys are talking about this his play style leads to him getting injured against St. Chit notice pass the ball. The only way to stop him from doing what he does is foul. Exactly. The World Cup and reason, right? He doesn't pass. He just keeps feeding trash dribbling through you. Imagine trying to dribble through a guy twice your size in a physical sport. You're gonna get Iraq. Well, what the hell it's like, well, no. Like there's you know the rules of the game. And there's also like you know, just playing the game there's a totally different things. So I would say neymar, but neymars I don't think it's gonna happen. So it's not gonna take them back. I don't see that happening or not. Who would who would buy him, the only one I would think would be as gene. He's there. I would say the gel Felix athleti go one we'll go through Greece. Many things out go through to bar so will hundred percent go through first because their silence. It's a good thing. Yeah, there's a lot of Chirpin. Yes, I'm leaving going to Barcelona and there hasn't been much, which means there's a lot of behind the scenes talk going on right now. And they're getting ready to come out of the statement, which one would shock me the heya talks to, hey, have you heard all that? That's that would probably be the most shocking and possibly going to NFL thing that one quiet. It owns about that. Now, I'm worried now that you said that whole quiet thing if that happens that would be shocking because he's been easily the best player for the United the past five years without a doubt. And for me, what's even worrying is that if Obama, who I think you heard here, I yeah. Best going the world. Yeah. He's, he's definitely up there. Yeah. Consistent over the last five years. Unbelievable. Obviously is great defense without letting go, but just the. Octopus. I call him if he goes to the United they upgraded at keeper. Yeah. I honestly, think that day has had. I mean he's had the here has had no favors in front of them this year, but is been definitely his worst season. And it's a bummer because it's a lot of it isn't really his faults. There were a lot of bad moments. Yes. But like that defense sucked. They didn't. They had to switch managers mid year. I miss my, my man marine not gonna lie. Yeah. It just was an odd year coming off his weird World Cup year where they didn't even they lost to Russia. And the peak as he had that bad that bad moment in the World Cup and goes against Portugal. Yeah. Someone but I don't know going up against Renaldo. Everyone looks bad against Renato. So that free kick in the World Cup. I looked at my dad and before that went in, and I said, this is going, my down the same thing, isn't it the best feeling in the world? And you go like that's going in well, these two are messy. But like every. Time messy lines up. Mike look over to my friends this, this is going in when it does is just like you just like the cool fucking guy in the world sit back. Grab my beer put it down cross my legs. And I'm like, I'm the shit. Do it. Yeah. I if I could do one thing of what who's likely to leave and go somewhere. It's grease men, the Barsa. Okay. All right. Got some gambling question. Yes. I soccer gambling question, because I'm a degenerate gambler. What do you use? Do you have your own book here has offshore bookies book? I've used my bookie. I used draft kings of us all sorts of stuff, I've used my book because they were sponsor on the show. So shout. Mybookie my booking. Yeah. Use code over time, but that expect that thing expired. But that's what a new code I we should when it does happen. I will let you guys know do you ever bet draws? Yes, you do. I think the most some of the most value plays okay because I'm always a winning losses person. Tell the listeners, so on my idiot, always telling him the. Ben is good. Okay. Sadly, this year for the primarily the least draws in tooth decades. Visit been a bad year for draws if you're a gamble at your draws, but overall you're usually going to get really good outs. I'm not a parlay guy. I think it's the biggest sucker bet Nov bedding really partly to draws that could be tend to win like one hundred fifty wow, theoretically, you see, like Burnley and like you know, let's say Burnley in villa play next year that just smells like a draw. Yeah. Right. But for me, there's two different ways to bet soccer three different ways technically there's money, lime one team way into this conversation team wins. The troll lock is we're in this. So one team wins the money line. The other team wins their money line. And there's the draw that's one way of betting that's called three way money line. Then there's the over under over two and a half goals under to enough goals. Over three goals under three goals. Okay. That was like the most plain and simple. Yes, I can understand it, then there's the spread right? Let's say city and LeicesteR are playing city might be favored by one and a half, which basically means they have to score two goals to win the bet if they win by two. They win the bet. They went by one LeicesteR wins the bat. I'm a spread better because when Vegas over does it and it's like man city, minus three and a half. They could blow this team out. But in reality, not likely, it's probably not going to happen. And then they have teams that are like put like my dumb brain is like, whoa, man city last week. Just be someone six nil there do to do again. But that just my dumb gambling brain. Yeah, I always say, everyone always says, with your gut don't dumb dumb. You can you can say, oh, this is my gut. Yeah. But go find a reason to back up your. Yeah. Right. Like, don't you need a second opinion? Like, if I hurt my ankle, my gut says it's a sprained ankle. I'm just going to treat this brain now. Go to a doctor find out that it's torn living. Yeah. And get a boot, right? Yeah. So I'm kinda guy where it's like a look at everything I see what my gut says, what I my, my soccer brain says, okay. Then I go to the numbers and for me the big the biggest things for betting. Soccer comes out a couple things form. Bet on teams are in good form. But don't bet on teams that have been informed for too long. Yes, there's always some sort of regression, right? Unless your city or Pia she or Barcelona where like you're probably gonna win. Most your games. Teams are going to eventually slowdown. They win four games in a row. They're probably not gonna win five unless playing really shitty team will, like what if my argument, which I lost a lot of money this year on Huddersfield? Like what's the whole philosophy like, oh, there do is that bad like like Huddersfield who are absolutely horrible this year. I'm oh they're so do for game. They were never do teams can be do really okay. Only some teams are do. All right. Because me more and would say on the show all the time. Well, they're definitely do they've lost the last ten they have to win through. Okay. So it depends like hundreds field. Are you got to realize always outliers in gambling like we said, sitting Liverpool in that tier there outliers Huddersfield their shit? They're also outliers on the other side of this. I need to look at the more West Ham, and Everton's mid-table sack Newcastle's that's where the money is in the middle. You got follow them follow. I think you just made a lot of money here. So thank you can. I kick it blog check it out. I was up eight fifteen units this year, so hundred bucks on every bed. It's fifteen hundred dollars shut the fuck up. Yeah. I've, so I'm like, three hundred thirty picks throughout the season cheese. Yeah. Yeah. Can I kick it blog go get your gambling fixed because that's where I'm going? But if you lose my fall Paul, never our fall. If you learn anything today that gambling accrue, mistress, that's true. So Niko, any last thoughts, you have soccer wise. How about US men's national team. How are you feeling about them? We could go for hours on the equator you not. I'm really happy right now. There's a real, there's an unease. There's very uneasy feeling the same way looking over their shoulder. To get wax. I've been watching the sopranos kind of like, yeah, I couple thoughts really quickly. We need to give Berhalter time really gives time Berhalter give birth or time. Yes argument. But I'm also on the don't fuck up the Gold Cup team. Yes. Right. Like we're gonna give you time. But that doesn't mean you can fail. We're giving you a lease. Sure to be extremely successful right away. Yes. Right. So you gotta find that middle ground of, if they make a semi final lose to Jamaica gonna be pissed. Yes. But is that a successful Berhalter in his first tournament? Yeah. I'm not a guts. It's a long process. We're changing an entirely new system bringing an entirely new generation faces. Exactly. I mean compared to the team in Trinidad which Trinidad on Saturday thoughts and prayers with the US Mets tonight if we don't be turned about, like ninety five goals, I'm I'm going to be on a cruise. So luckily, I'm probably not going to even be able to see it. But like. Just I know my Twitter, probably be filled just like dumpster fire. Give actually start out the door and Bradley against Trinidad God or God damn it. But I mean there is a lot of happy thoughts. Happy thoughts happy. I know. I mean there is a lot of hope guys act. Stephan. Awesome goalkeepers realize because played yet in the past couple game. Exactly. Yeah. So you could change entire this offense. Yeah, I don't like how he didn't leave Gedin put Josh sergeant in the oh, there's a there's a crime against gingers in this country. And it starting on the US. Gingers are under attack. That is bullshit, pro ginger podcast. This is a very progenitor like podcast. Thank you. John, Josh and his curly hair should be on that booking starting lineup. And if he's not, then at least give them to you. Yeah. That could have been a different to Ecuador. Yeah. You kidding me? Oh my God. That's probably the most disappointing. Have you tag saved Josh of save the gingers? What about the us women's national team? Have you been enjoying this women's World Cup? Oh my God. I love it really big US women's national team. I mean we're just a wagon but we cannot be stopped what were the biggest wagon in a while. Yeah. Like we have so much firepower. And you know what message to the people telling us not to go overboard on the goals against Thailand? Go fuck. Fuck fuck fuck. No, there, my grandfather came out to graduation parties. What did you think of the whole from my cousins graduates? He's like, oh, what do you think of the goal celebrations like they should've kept celebrate. Like that's what I wanna hear. This is my grandfather served in Phnom. He loves that shit celebrating your anti veterans. I'll say. Veterans. No. I am so like, and I love corley Loyd who came out at the golf Plata. Guess? Speaking of which still to nothing nothing to sixty nine th minute. Nice I'm so it's the biggest age. And everyone keeps saying, oh, we only talking about Mary for years. You know what they're going to go out and celebrate as much as they want dream. Yeah. Exactly. For a lot of them are first time starting Koran Roosevelt, mcgurk Pugh. That's her first time starting to Tobin heath. I. But yeah, I mean like also Louis this is her last world. Thirty seven. I did not know that Pinos last ones. Yeah. Alex mortgage, get up there, shouldn't even start, and we destroyed chill could have been six nil. If it wasn't for that goal. Yeah. Engler was unbelievable. I've been loving this World Cup. There's a little controversy today. I only saw it on Twitter of France or some VR was they get a penalty. So this is France versus Nigeria. Okay. What happens is up to kick a penalty. Okay. And she misses white, but they go to VR and the goalies literally half a second six inches off the line. Oh my God before she kicks, God forbid goalie in history. Penalty kicks gets that head start. They call it back and they make it and then up winning one. Nothing. Now they also didn't spot that French players were croaking in the box. Of course. They didn't quickly on VR. I was pro VR. Yeah. But I was pro VR overturn. Turning bad bad calls. Like, yeah. Like yo you messed that one up. Let's overturn offside that could decide the game. The game. We don't wanna talk about city Spurs that. No fine. I just went to a place like your is just went like like white. I don't know. Like Joel your sharp by that was bad anyway. But yeah, I'm very pro VR. I think you could make the game more accurate. They're just picking calls now, now it's just like I was the argument. I saw on Twitter is, maybe it's exposing all these dumb murky rules and soccer. What do you think that it is? Yes. But there's too many like it more when it was kind of murky. Yeah. Me would you rather? Have it be murky or, and not have anything change it or murky in like not really be able to change it with the fuck now we're going into this. Like what if what does the handball now really asking that three or four years ago? It was just a handball. You saw what you're like that's amble might have been some debate. But now, it's like what's amble? We're entering like that. We're entering like Schroeder's cat like, oh Jj Abrams. Twilight zone of do you like interstellar like we need like a fourth dimension, like Matthew Magana? Hey finding his kid kind of deal. I've been really liking this women's World Cup. I'm excited to go to the knockout rounds even like the group age of the World Cup like I was like watching the games I was missing a lot of them. I'm mean more excited when she gets his knockout round age of knockout round World Cup. Soccer is championship team. He's like a little bit. When you get a good really good group, a buyer liver Liverpool who else was an app, Liverpool team in their PSE honest, this is the most taxing Champions League season on my life. I can't even like no that's fine. I there's a lot of repressed memories going there really wasn't in it. So nego. This has been fun now. I'm just getting any other soccer things going on your mind. Is there anything you bring up, don't kill him baba for heading to Venice beach yesterday in the soccer ball around with Venice beach FC? That's sick. And you went to the dodgers game. He did. Yeah. I I only read the first pitch. I was really sick. I saw that rocket man movie with John and he was in the dodgers uniform. And I was like, look. No real quivalent, but I was hoping Imbaba rip a fastball. Oh. And it just was not the most athletic throw over seen. One of my friends, who's not a soccer fan was like, oh. Look at this, they're not athletes as a first time. He's thrown anything like to have seen fucking fat as berry bond you ever seen. Tickets October seem Julio Jones try to kick a soccer ball, probably horrible. He it was the most unathletic motion ever seen exactly athletic human being not like some people who can just like transitionally. It could be like LeBron James or someone could play every sport.

LADS#97 - USA vs. England, VAR in the Premier League, and Club Power Rankings

"Oh. No, no. No. Thing of hey, I'm competit- and I'm Martin Frazier. And we are loud Americans discussing soccer better known as Lah. Okay today is November fifteenth twenty eighteen in guys. We usually spend our Thursday nights giving you our predictions are bets for the weekend. And there's nothing bet on in the Premier League or in club soccer because it is the international break, but don't don't fret. We got tons of awesome topics today, which includes the US men's versus England, which was shit show international break versus no nut November V A R is in the Premier League. So that's gonna get pretty contentious contentious. Okay. Claudia Renne's Aries back and also ESPN AFC dixies club team rankings, and they're fucking horrible. But Martin what the fuck is up. Dude. You know, the absolute usual drinking in library and watching soccer highlights and missing club soccer. That's literally all I have to say about this next two weeks. I just need club soccer. I don't give to FOX about these giant friends like tomorrow at least plane Portugal. I believe in Spain is playing I think France, I can't remember, but there's like, huge international games. And kev. I couldn't be asked to give less less of a shit. Like these are worth. To me. It's just like why like it's like it always happens in November. And it's just bums me out because team start like getting chemistry and flowing. Now, they've played enough games together whether figuring stuff out and now it's like, oh, we're going to play some more games. Even though like the biggest international competition was just a couple of months ago. It makes no sense. And next thing, you know, players are going to get her guarantee at least one the to a list like superstars are going to get hurt. And then we're gonna complain about international break, and then nothing's going to get result. Pretty fucking much, and that's just like cycle that repeats itself over and over and over again, I'm just waiting for the first news to break about a starving. Injured like a good three four weeks and just being absolutely pissed off at the international break yet again or more pissed off than I usually. Yeah. Because it's going to be some dumb shit. Like that happens every time it's going to be like England vs Bosnia. I don't know. I always pick Bosnia. But they're just it's the first like kinda shitty country, not country not country just national side. I'm sure Bosnia's a beautiful place. But. It's going to be some like centreback gets pissed off at Harry Kane because he's just tortured them the whole match, and he's going to do a stupid tackle and break is fucking leg. That's it happens. Every year we end up losing like great players from their major of the season. And I'm sick of it. I'm sinking their national break. We pitch about it every time, and I'm gonna keep bitching. I'm gonna keep it in about it. Keep bitching until they listen to ban the international break. Just like you said, we're three months removed from the biggest international competition in the history of international competitions. If you ignore the Olympics, moored war to and war one. Yeah. Whatever you a couple things. This is a Jain Norma's competition, and we're three months remove the next one is in for another four years. Do y'all have to start qualifying. Now like, I get you guys should train together. You guys should train together. And keep it in house like go on going to Wednesday to train with the national team. I don't. Give ship but stopped taking two weeks out of my. Real club soccer world and. I just looked up to see if anybody has been injured yet. Nobody technically has. But can we say Benjamin Mendy he got surgery on Wednesday to repair meniscus tear? Can we just blame the international break for that? Yeah. I'm gonna just throw in the international brain say totally their fall, and many might be injured for another championship knows. You know, the guy just gives ranking them up and. It's like gronkowski. He's like he has like three Super Bowl rings. But like only one of them he's kind of played in. I don't know. Yeah. It's like some weird like sour so. Yeah. Patriots are kind of find without him. All right. Martin before. I forget this is not soccer related, but I need your feedback. I feel like fucking like pure low. I didn't all time smooth. So are you ready? No. I'm really not. Okay. Okay. And it's me. So this is big for me. Get like one of these every like like year one a year like groundhog sees his shadow kinda shit. All right. So I'm hanging out with this girl over the weekend. And somehow we end the conversation. And I don't know I she asked if I knew any other languages, and I was like, no, not really I barely learned fucking Spanish do American sign language, and she was like can you sign something to me? And I did you're very beautiful or you're very pretty one of the two to her and oh shut up. All right. It's getting good. It's going good. And then it's the typical girl response. Oh, do you say, that's all the girls. And I responded with not inside language. That is. I mean started off cringe fest, and I was like this. I mean, this isn't great. This isn't a great move. I'm sorry. You used up your quota on that. But that's that's a great response. Give that to you. All right. And I'm sure that that's also a complete lie. No that did happen because I only remember because she known you telling you only doing that. You're fucking son language bullshit to her and her nephew can't. If you can't. I know you guys can't see me. But I'm signing something to Kev right now my middle fingers up. Oh, fuck you. Oh, I didn't know if you were taking lessons or I don't know figured, okay? No that that was pretty good. I can I just put the record straight. I don't hit on girls using sign language now. I feel like I'm gonna get this weird. Like, I just hit on girls. They're not deaf. And be like, hey, you're beautiful. What's up and there'd be like what the fuck? Are you doing weirdo? And I'm like, no it's supposed to be cute. And they're like this isn't your being fucking weird. All right. That's that's enough of that. I felt like I felt like David Beckham. I felt like fucking boof on for like a minute. You know, I just wanted to feel like that. And if like that, you know, so Marin you had a kind of cool story before we started the podcast about a referee getting in trouble something about this something. Yeah. So if you think the -ficiating itself is bad in the Premier League and the NFL, and then the and every sport imaginable, just wait to you hear this story. And you're just going to blame the entire management on all of the refs mistakes. So on Sunday an English referee. David McNamara took the field before Manchester City and reading in the women Superleague buddy forgot his coin. To coin flip decide what side of the field you want. And if you want the ball in the first or second half, and so he improvised like a God damned champion and. Stead of running back into the locker room or asking a fan for coin. He asked the two captains Klay rock, paper scissors show. And they did they did and it worked out and the thing that just blows my fucking mind. He go band he got banned until the end of this year. Like, dude is just a genius. He had a problem. He solved the problem. And the odds of coin flip or just about the same exact odds as a rock paper scissors game like chill the fuck out your weirdos. Like if you can gamble on the coin toss of the Super Bowl in you can gamble on anything. I mean, it's all odds. Right. So is there a competitive edge for some people are where was the one high in like saying like, oh, she's definitely someone who just does rock every single time. Like, I don't know. I feel bad for this guy. Let the let him have fun. I think that's a cool way of saying. Like fuck it. That's like, you know, this is the problem with like VAR, which I agree VR, but shit takes too much time. I would have to run to the sideline be like who has a Koi. It's like when you're trying to break a Bill at work. And you're like does anyone have any change? And there's like, no, no one has changed. And and he just wanted the game to play on. That was awesome. Good for him. Fuck this organization for was in the Premier League women's for merely. Yeah. Woman Superleague or. Yeah. I think that's the name. Yeah. And just fuck them saying like, oh he can apply to be back next year. No, he should be like head referee because that is some game time choices right there that is like if you're in the army and there's like fuck like and you'd make that decision. You get promoted. That's how that shit works. So bad on them this referee. I I love him. Yeah. Dave mcnamara. If you hear this high dad, you're everything that I ever could have wanted. I need that type of problem solving ingenuity in my life, jer the man. Yeah, I could not name another referee that I respect more than I respect Dave McNamara. Dave mcnamara. Twenty twenty come over to the merica run for presidency. Let's do it. And we'll get your citizenship this fucks. I like this guy this guy fucks heavy. All right moving on to something that doesn't fuck. Heavy US national team versus England. Which also I was thinking earlier like I kind of an asshole because we rooted so hard for England during the summer. Oh, like continued to do it today for England the whole time I but I was like I put on like three lines today. And I felt like like suspect trails three lights on the shot. I was like singing network. It was great. Ca scored but. Yeah. This was a total ship pumping by England and they played like their cease squad with going into this game. I got exactly what I thought was going to happen. Like this team. Like people were like, oh English playing their seaside US men were this is looks like the squatted the future posed this is going to be playing Christian and like England made it to the semi final. I don't of the World Cup people. Like, do you realize that this team that they were playing the US? A did not even qualify England made it to the semi final US MS national team couldn't keep possession against like South America. Like like these island teams. Do you think they had a fucking didn't have a punchers chance against England? Yeah. And it showed immediately like the first twenty minutes of the game itself. It was England all day right outside of Brad Kuzan box. And exactly like you said this team was not the starting squad for England in the world. You add bench show. Well, Michael, Keane? Lewis dunk. Jordan Sancho, Harry winks Callum Wilson visited England strongest fucking team. And this is United States states team of the future their best team as of right now. And they just got embarrassed I will say that it was the perfect way to send off Wayne Rooney. He almost got a goal in the eighty nine th minute. And I was on my feet screaming at the TV hoping that would go in. But Brad Kuzan had to ruin my day. And finally make save in the game and ruined it. But like, I'm just so happy that Wayne Rooney got the exit that he deserved because he has fifty three goals for England. The most of anybody, and he's just been an icon for this team for so long. So I am all about the fact that England slammed USA three zero and it serves USA. Right. We still don't have a fucking manager. It's been over a year since Bruce Arena's bitch ass was fired. How do we not have a manager? If a company didn't have a manager for year that company would be bankrupt. It'd be dissolved it'd be gone. And yet we want to actually compete against teams like England have we don't have a manager. What the fuck people England USA just super sad for USA. Yeah. I mean, we're just on totally to ends of the spectrum in terms of talent. And it just is easily show an end like this is a farewell game for alleged. Like England wasn't really even trying Jesse lingered schools ridiculous. When you have trick Alexander Arnold scoring. Great goals. Like what what does that tell you? What does that tell you about your defense? Brad kuzan. Why did Stephan not play? I get a like he's probably tired from the playoffs or whatever. The MLS Bill. Exact Stefan is like the future. Like why not play him? And channel. To friend of the show Anthony show, that's like his boy from high school or something like that onto foot talk. But like, that's that's like what are we doing man? Like, I feel like this is a major wakeup call. Like you. Remember, my friends said from England Martin. Yeah. Yeah. He like message me on Facebook today. And he was like Kev how how long has it been you guys having gone the new national team manager? And I honestly said I have no clue I have no idea. And I just got really sad. I was like don't ask me that question because I don't fucking know. Like, I don't have an answer. I still feel like we have no direction as a team and for now like, I'm just focusing on club. Because I don't have to worry about a European. I don't worry about World Cup for another four years. I don't want to think about it. Like, I'm just I'm just like happy to be watching like pulses like do. So. Well, that's like my only bright spot. Oh, yeah. And on the flip side of things it just sucks to see this for the USA team. Like there are so many great promising future hopefully stars on this USA team with McKinney way. Pull the sich Bobby wood to a certain degree. Steph on to a certain degree to certain degree even Zach Steph on. I know he's hurt de'andre yet Lim plays in the Premier League. Regularly and has played there for years, and yet there isn't a cohesive plan to enhance this team to better this team to bring these young kids who have the next ten or so years in front of them on this team together and make them get better and lay that foundation. And instead, we're just like, yeah. We'll have it. Interim manager we'll have you know, everything possibly going wrong for us at the US soccer federation in terms of corruption NGOs, listlessness and just laziness and not investing in our future. And this is exactly it. We have a promising young group of of kids yet. No one is there not a single move has been made to replace this managerial system that Bruce Arena's just fucked off and left like what the fuck guys come on. Yeah. I again, I just felt like we've been in purgatory this entire time. There's no direction I feel like we're just a bunch of zombies. Welcome around with like, you know. No like culture or new. I d of like what we are. And it's just sad. You know? It's like I like we've talked about this us men's national team. We've always known you never had the talent. But at least we had like grits, we've always had like some type of edge to us or we like bully other teams. I just don't see any of that. I don't see any of that. And you know, and people will chalk this up is like, oh, this is just a friendly. Like who cares? Like, then people were like, oh, you didn't care about the disastrous. Like, what do you want me to do what tell me tell me what you want, and I'll do it. But like right now, I just don't care about the national team that sounds harsh. But I honestly like they have given me a reason to believe in them. Yeah. And I mean like you said, I think it can be summed up with the word 'sad. Like, I'm not mad at these kids. I'm not mad at the US men's national team. It's just sad that the higher ups are not fucking. Doing the job that they have to do to make this team better. I like come come on. I have enough depressants in my life. Whether it's Manchester United fucking eagles the fucking Rangers. Whatever you wanna name in sports. It's probably depressing me USA's, not even my main national team that I support I support it England. That's the only reason I haven't gone off the deep end so come on USA fix your fucking shit. Hire a manager developed these young kids look to the future and get on your fucking horse and do something do anything make a bad higher. I don't care at least make higher make fucking commitment. Jesus. Come on. You always regret the beers. You don't drink come on? All right. Do unless you're bread capital? Oh, ooh. All right with that transition. Let's move on to the international break versus no nut November. I'm going to only be briefly about this. But I put out a poll on our Facebook Twitter. Her and Instagram today. And I said what's worse, the international break or no November. And I do I explain no November. I don't think I have to. Okay. I hope not okay. You're listening to this show. And don't know what. No, not November is. Stop listening to your brothers podcast. Yeah. That's all. I'm saying just you're too young. And if you're some grandparents or older, folk, I'm sorry, then you're probably gonna look this up. And you're like what the fuck. All right. So I'm just gonna use the one from Facebook. But with fifty eight votes seventy two percent say the international break is worse than not Nutting in November. So Martin I penned this question, do you what's worse international break or not be able to come for a whole month? I think the answer is very simple. I can't do anything about the international break. I can completely ignore November. Like I have been doing since I was fourteen years old. And that's what I'm doing right now. So in November ineffective me God damn rebel, the international break. That's affected me. Yeah. Because soccer in sports like, you know, just that affects my joy in my life. Like me coming or not like that's just like almost like, you know, it's almost like something you check off for the day. Like, I brush my teeth. I jerked there's no lake at this point. There's no like mystery or like magic behind is kind of like, all right? I just do that. Now. Like part of my life. When I like November for like, oh my God. How can you do it? It's like, well, if I do I do if I don't I don't like just no, I don't I don't get all that beat up. But the people are saying the internet actually, there was a funny comment on the Facebook. Let me see if I can find it which pretty much a pit vices. Like, November the comment is from this is bad radio. My phone is piece of shit. Barely lose the comment is from Logan Baker. I literally cracked up so credit. Look at Baker from the Facebook. He said I wasn't going to get any in November. Anyway, definitely international break. The Jason Levin. I say his last name he said, the powers you received. During November unfathomable, I'm levitating and shit right now. So credit some funny fellow lads of the show, so. Yep. International breaks still sucks confirms. All right Martin. Now. This is the contentious part of the show because we talked about this at length for the past year about VA or video assistant referee being in the league being other competitions and not in the Premier League. So we're just going to I'm going to say for everyone. I'm a for the a are in the Premier League. Martin is not so Martin. I, you know. Do you want to present your case? I do you want to be the prosecution to saying like why why should be shunned away for the Premier League? I don't know. That's how Laurie I'm a paralegal. And I don't know how fucking loss still works. But yeah, you go first. I cannot make any arguments that say that VR is going to make the game less less accurate less. Perfect in terms of a statistical in a refereeing standpoint. But my main argument is that. It takes so much out of the game. It it ruins the visceral nature. It ruins the connections that the fans have with the sport itself you watch you watch a player driving up the field. Driving into the opponent's box passing across the ball. The second that ball hits the net. You know, you're going to fucking cheer your ass off or you're going to be completely dead just destroyed. And if we introduce a system that genuinely takes thirty seconds to a minute for the goal to be other registered as good or bad at takes out. Just a wrongness of the motion the motion is now concentrated on waiting for a for a computer to say if it's right or wrong. And I I'm all about making the accuracy and English football on football everywhere. Much better. But. There comes a cost with making it more accurate, and the the thing I have to drill down is NFL look NFL. And I think a lot of fans will agree to NFL has been ruined to a certain extent because of the just massive amount of the video replace take five minutes to determine where a ball was spotted even if it's within a one yard segment and that takes away from the flow of the game. We're talking about, you know, a raw sense of emotion. You don't get this type of feeling from very many other places than sport. Where it's like you bleed this color you cheer. If your team does good you cry if they don't and to add more levels to it to make it more accurate at a risk of taking that away. It's it takes away part of the motion part of what makes football soccer. Just fucking amazing. If it is implemented like it is in. Lol IGA where there isn't a lot of ref stopping the play the refs play on. And the video assistant actually tells them if there is a controversy that they might have to replace them watch it again, if they can minimize the time the ref is off the field watching a video taking time away from the game taking emotion and context away from the game and find a way for it to work separately from the game itself. That's the only way I'd be happy with it. I'm just not happy with it at all. I think as we get more accurate more precise. We take away from the emotions of the game. It's a simple fucking game eleven players on each side fucking three sticks. And you have a goal. Soccer ball, you can play on concrete asphalt everyone and their mother around the world play soccer. It's such a natural simple thing. Don't try and distort it that's all on sane. Don't try and distort. It don't take away from the simplicity and the beauty of the game. All right. Wow. I almost want to be against VR. Now Marin, you you you really laid it out. Well, you know what kudos? Hey, preach. Yeah. No that hatred coming out, and you know, excellent that was pretty eloquent for like like you. So like. So like surprise like the whole time. Like, how am I gonna fucking a follow up with that? But my big thing is obviously I just want the game to be more accurate because sometimes when you do have title races or you had these knockout games in the Champions League. Sometimes it will come down to one decision. That would be would go the other teams way. In would have been corrected by the A are obviously the argument will be like whoa, during the course of a season it evens out. There's a balance one game. You get a bad call the next time. The call goes your way. But I think when it comes to like finals when it comes to like semi finals in terms of knockout stuff, then. Yes, definitely definitely needed because there's money on the line. There are you know, careers on the line. Also, I definitely agree with you if they implemented. Well, it's like communism if done well. Allegedly is the best form of government. We've obviously seen it now workout. So my thing is if you can do VR, well like they do in this banish like like you're saying where it's like real quick do. Okay, then. Yeah. Then I think VR is great. I mean, why not make the game better and more accurate better is subjective. But more accurate. There's no denying that. And also make sure it's on calls. And which that are not like subjective. You know? Like is that a handball is a not definitely for like offsides. I think that's definitely like the major one. Right. And we already have like the goal line technology to see the ball is gone over the plane or not so yeah, I'm all for VR. I've seen a lot of positivity. But I've also seen a lot of hey, saying like you're saying can ruin the game ruin the the magic behind it. You know, what I mean, like not the mystery the mystery of faith, but like the the magic of the spore and how. Fluid and it's nonstop. And that's why soccer's always given this like, you know, edge over other sports. You know is because it's there's no commercial breaks. There's there's no like crazy stops every five seconds like the last two minutes of a basketball game or the last two minutes of football game. You know, like, that's. So I don't know. I'm I'm for VR. I'm ex I'm hoping it gets implemented. Well, but then again England is notorious for having the worst fucking referees. And in out of any of the league's that's not just being biased. I mean, I think it's universally. Agreed England's refs suck. That's why that's why you see any English reps in the World Cup. You didn't see any end like the Champions League size like Mark Klatten Berg last year and even kicked him out. So or he retired whatever, but he made the game more about him than anyone. So it was like the Mark Clinton Burke show, and I wasn't paying money to see him, obviously. So I don't know. I think it's gonna be interesting. I think we're getting into a new transition of you know, technology becoming more and more part of the game. I'm just hoping like you're saying it doesn't ruin it. Yeah. I mean, like I said like you said I agree with making making games making refereeing. More accurate. But at the same time there has been instances in in Spain this year in boondocks league in Lawley. Not allowed in lagoon and most importantly into World Cup this summer where VR was implemented. It was shown that it only gave a three percent increase in accuracy. And also arguably cost Croatia gore two in the final of the World Cup. So I just don't agree with the need for perfect accuracy. I it goes back to what I was saying. There's there's a magic there's football gods. One day, you're going to get a call against you. It's going to ruin your fucking day ruin your year. And then the next year you'll be on top of the world because you did get a call things balance out and just let them this. This game has always been run by controversies whether it's a game controversy off the pitch controversy. That's what people talk about like you. And I we still. About dumb ass referee decisions in in games from fucking three weeks ago and putting a computer in charge of it. I just I think man people need something to bitch about like on love that I can bitch about VAR. But people need a reason to blame. Something else than their team. Like Charlie Austin did on on Saturday when they got ship pump by or last Saturday when they got ship by man city, he questioned the he questioned the referees when sterling dove and got that penalty he questioned why he didn't get a penalty. And yeah, they got axed six one. But here's fucking Charlie. Austin? The man the myth legend blaming it on the refs people need that ship people need a scapegoat. Let the refs be the scapegoat. They always have been. We always will fucking blame the refs. Let them be. Yeah. I think there's going to be a day where I'm just going to be like I'm going to bet on a team and be like, well, if there was referees that would have gone that way. And I would've I would've won. So I would have been making my money back. So this bullshit technologies hurting the over. So and you'd never mess with the over don't ever touch the over is precious. So yeah, we're going to be talking about this way more next year. Obviously if we're still round Godwilling. Ooh, I don't I don't know. I said that. That sounds almost like oddness like death is coming. Yeah. Well, it's coming for every for all the Martin. So that's true. Yes. People forget, we're all going to die. Moving on to someone who's definitely not dead Claudio Rin Neri he is back baby. Dilly dong. Ding Dong, this sausage man himself. God damn it. I'm so happy. And like, I I was all out on Fulham. They're their oh my God. They're gonna wanna fuck a winning streak. If you wanna know, why would it be broke the next couple of weeks? It's because I'm betting every game on Fulham. All my bets are going to be through. My bookie by the way, police sponsor us, but they're all going to be on Fulham. Sounds like a pretty fair and. Sound decision? I can definitely get behind that. I'm just I'm just so glad to see him back in the man. Like, I know he went to France this past year after he lost the less job, but form to come to a team that is similar to LeicesteR that is struggling like shit. And you know, he's the like happy father figure in that locker room. Like god. Damn. Yeah. He's kind of like happy for him. He's like that goofy grandfather used to just like dance around and like drink too, much wine and be like, hey, what's going on like, he's just such a such a goofball? And like I just like every time. I see him. I feel like I'm just going to get the chills. I got when they won the title. I'm just like remember when he did that like I I didn't need to have in the Premier League. So I can feel like there's hope in the world and that like Cinderella stories and like magic is still real because. Yeah. God damn he's just such a fund manager. And he's got some of the best press conferences comparing Jimmy Vardi, thoroughbred, horse and. Buying the pizza you I'll buy the sausage on the sausage man all-time quotes like this guy is like a quote machine. And he's also got like really good like, you know, like teamwork and love and like, you know, the spirit of the game quotes. But his funny ones are fucking gold. So I I'm going to say is I was you know, in our last podcast. We kinda counted out Fulham. I mean, this is by hiring Claudio Ranieri. I'm guaranteeing least plus ten more points to their final season score. So if that's enough to get them out of relegation, then that good the good. I would like to see Claudio Ranieri. I don't care to see Fulham in the Premier League per se. I'm more excited to see Claudio Ranieri in the in the Premier League. So. Yeah. I still don't know if it's going to be enough for Fulham to escape. Escape relegation come into the season. But I think Renard definitely boost their chances. I'm excited to see what he brings to this Fulham team. Because there's no doubt about it. Fulham has some talented. Individuals mutual vich sairy assessing YoM, surely there's some talent on that team. So it's gonna be fun and shit to see what he can do. And I'm sure that they're going to go into each game as a dogfight like he did with Leicester City, and it's crazy or some winger Leonardo Jordan, the ex manager of Monaco and Andre villas boas were all snubbed are all snubbed Fulham. They were all offered the job before Rene is. And like these days, I'd take Jardim, and that's it from the other two managers that were offered the position I think for nary at this day and age, I think he's a much better manager than Andre villas boas. And I mean, no offense to Wang or the man the myth legend. But right now, right. Here. Take Renee over wonder. Oh, okay. That's a hot take though right now right here after seeing Aaron. Dole fucking champions. God damn don't even want him to the quarterfinals. And what is done in the last fucking five years. Don't dude sitting on don't shit on a guy who's sitting on the couch. Don't disrespect the man who just chilling drinking his fancy wine looking for his pockets, don't even put code Aaron areas and Alzheimer is not in the same breath as Arsene Wenger. Don't don't terms of history. Absolutely not. I totally agree. But in terms of who I'd want to manage my club right here right now. Don't know. All right. All right. Well, all right. It's getting a little it's getting a little heated on here. I'm just happy. I'm happy to have quality or Inari back back in the mix. He's in the mix as putting the ball in the mix. Thank god. I'm just I always hope him the best the absolute best. And I just want him to be happy. So this is great news. We needed a good news day. Yeah. Everything's been so fucking depressing just us, but all right moving onto the next topic before we absolutely roast this ESPN FC club power rankings around Europe, which is absolute dog shit. Like, I thought I was out on ESPN before I'm early SPNFZ. I'm so out now. But before we get into that NBC sports they stole our tweet. And you know, I'm not mad. I'm not upset. I'm disappointed. You know? I we tweeted out sees Messi scored another hat trick. My brain don't say don't say it does say, but can you do it on a cold rainy night in stoke? I'm not gonna like try and like I'm literally saying me Mer like a Twitter joke. But it was funny. It is pretty fucking funny. I'm going to say, and then NBC goes player has a good game same format. My brain don't say don't say don't say to say it me. But can you do it on a cold wet night in stoke out like Louis, hours and hours? Like, I, you know, just whatever man like just like why like their version? I even that fucking funny. I was just bummed out. Like, it's just like, you know, we've had people like take some of our stuff before. And like all right, cool. Like, I don't care. But when it's like NBC like your fucking asshole. I'm just gonna say it. Yeah. Fuck NBC. I supported the shit out of them back in like twenty sixteen twenty seventeen and ever since they made up NBC gold are just started hating everything about them. So this is just another reason to boycott NBC and watch it on an legal stream because that fuck the man, I think. Yeah. Anarchy mar in fucking anarchy. And you know, what I love like Arlo y Lee Dixon, the to Robbie's, you know, men in blazers all these cool cats, the people they hire do a fucking amazing job that company itself can suck a bag of Dicks. I'm gonna say they can suck all the Dick's. And or whoever runs Twitter can suck a dick. But whatever just just you know, I got to bring this up. But I I can see them for intellectual property like the guy from Conan O'Brien, but I don't even wanna get into that right now. Look it up some guy soon Conan O'Brien for stealing his jokes and patent oswald's to lead expert. In it. It's it's a real trial. That's really happening. So which I think is so funny. Like Pat Oswald on the stand being like, yeah. Like, I'm I'm an expert comedian like what he what do you say on the stand? This guy like was a Twitter guy couldn't O'Brien Yousef monologue and made money off in like, it's the first time. Like we've seen him flight. We were talking before the show like Amy Schumer Dinka and other Carlos Mencia who I forgot he was a comedian. And he had this stoop stupid. Stick about like, mentally challenged people like holy shit. I forgot all about that. Yeah. He kinda like was early two thousand was a weird time where like making we're making fun of people with disabilities was still, okay. Like like, if you what was it. I don't want to do it. But it was the thing like did it or whatever. Yeah. Yeah. I I don't even want to do because it's still like fucked up, but I talked about like coming earlier. So. I don't know. I I just it. Just bums me out. All right. Let's move on to these dog shits power rankings by ESPN FC. I'm just going to read them off Martin. And then we can go into our roast. So here are yet. According to ESPN NFC, I don't know if there had been other people in the room to agree on this. I don't know if it was just one person, but they put this out. So number one is Manchester City number two is Porto. Number three is. You've meant is number four is Napoli. Number five is PS g number six's, breezy dormant. Number seven is P as v on Hoving. Eight is Barcelona nights is Tottenham in tenth is. I x. All right. All right. All right. Let's let's just. Let's just get you know, there's just address it Porto is to that is obviously the biggest like what the fuck on this list. But Martin in what universe is Porto in the top ten but second in the world. Am I misreading this my blind? What's happening? Dude. I just. All right, Manchester City, deservedly number one notion about that. Right. But okay Porto. Okay. Go to the Portuguese league. You can name. Probably three teams max on us your Portuguese or Superindent GI soccer, you can name FC Porto Sporting Lisbon and benefit. I'd be fucking reminded of benefit today. When Kevin we're talking about this. I could only name to even though I know who benefit is just. Couldn't fucking think of one and in their Champions League group. They play I'm sorry to say this, but not fucking great teams there. Best team in their group is shock four then they played Lokomotiv Moscow and galatassary they play in the Portuguese league. And they are in a easy group in the Champions League. They are I in the Portuguese lead by two points. How Indo Faulk does any of that make sense to put them second better than you Venice better than Liverpool? Napoli Chelsea who aren't even on this list. And I just found out who ranked all these people. It was shock a his law. I fuck with shocker his. This is the dumbest fucking lists that you could have put out. I am so disappointed as just bogus. This is click bait at its finest. Yeah. Like if it's not click bait than fire Shaq has like I don't like what else to say. But like could any this is my big takeaway could any player on Porto star for any of these other teams asides like PSV or I XE. No, no, no, one player on Porto casare for you. Ventas Napoli PSE Dorfman, maybe not even Dorman Barcelona Tottenham. Porto is only two points ahead of what's it called? We looked at the table head of Lisbon. They're not even running away their domestic leak. So this this makes my fucking head hurt Marin, and then you have the inclusion of PSV an X, which is cute. I guess. Again. I don't even know what they they deserve to be on the list. PSV doesn't deserve the higher ranked the Barcelona Tottenham that I know that I know that for a fact, I know Porto should be ranked higher than any of this teams. If they deserve to be on this list. I I I guess, but like let's talk about the teams that are non -cluded on this Martin. I'll just rattling off some top of my head Chelsea Liverpool by Munich has been doing that good. They deserve to be on this list. Like don't don't cut out a team that on paper would beat the snot out of Porto or PSV any day of the week. Like, I I'm trying to think of other teams like let it go robot robot Roma. Yeah. The list goes on. I could even make a case for fucking leg. You're gonna put I XE Porto, and what's it called PSV on it? I can make a case the fucking bore myth should be on this shit. I don't know like this is this hurts via severe in place in LA Liga won't behind Barcelona. Yeah. Of like what the fuck kind of. I just do not understand the reasoning for putting I XE PSV Einhoven and Porto most of all Porto. I can kind of wrap my head around PSV on Hoven because they fought the shit out of Tottenham beat him once and drew my another lost in a last gasp. Winner by Harry Kane in the Champions League. But still you're putting mice with lions. Like, I of the teams we just said we're left out. Do you have any question that any of those teams could easily and handedly beat Porto? I x and ESPN Hoven. I don't think there's any doubt. Yeah. Maybe not like handily safely play one hundred games between two sides. I'm going to say the majority of the winds are going to go to these other sides that if that makes it sound more fair because like like people really oh on any given day Portugal. Be someone. No, I'm talking like just pure class. Like like, I would even put arsenal head of any of these teams. Martin. I'm give you shop Manchester United over Porto. I exer- PSV. Like what what are we what are we doing here? Guys. If shock his lob school was to make me upset you. Did it you one? Congratulations. You made me fucking upset that was your goal, then good. Then you got your click bait you got us to talk about. Yeah. But just know like this is bullshit. This is absolute bullshit don't do this. If I'm doing my top ten I like man city event is PSE Barcelona Liverpool. Like, that's I'm getting into like, blue bloods, blue chip fucking teams. Like, that's who I'm talking. I'm not talking about teams who are in the top five leagues in Europe. Not in the top five leaks in Europe. Yup. That's like, and we've said this before I think I said this about neymar. Just because you're the biggest fish in your shit little pond sorry to the leagues that I'm insulting. But hey, whatever, I don't deal with it deal with it. So say you're the best football player in Wyoming a fucking country. Jesus Christ St.. A state that doesn't have a lot of people do think that just because you're the best in Wyoming. You're the best in the world. Stop using that mentality. Just because they're the best in their own league. Doesn't mean they're league as shit when compared to the big boys the big leads the PL lollygag. In Syria, even the bonus league and league or Leeson bounds. More talented at the top of the table. Then the Portuguese and Dutch leaves I just. It's just so dumb like it's just dumb this list. And like when I put it on the chopping block. For today's episode. I was like excited to talk about it. Now just pissed off. I just read FOX shock at his law. The teams that were replaced by the shit teams. That are in the top ten now are enter Chelsea and arsenal. Like what how did they how did they get dropped? What did they deserve to do to get dropped? Like what the fuck? I I I don't know. Can we move into the fan questions? I've done with this. I don't I don't wanna do this anymore. I got the Facebook open. I just want to answer fan questions. I just wanna finish this podcast these answers to these questions suck is because shock his made it happen. So you should go. Message on Twitter and tweet at him and say like thanks for making latte suck last night. You it's because of you and your shitty shitty. Power rankings power rankings stir week rankings. There's no power behind these rankings because sucks. Okay. So first question Marin, are you ready? Friday. Stephen A right now is this. How does it'd be seen a all the fucking time? What I question is from Marcus tag. He says what is a fully any mar. No, you take this. Well, he is now a man with no hair. If you haven't seen the news. He chopped off all of his disgusting. Greasy dirty fucking afro hair. And I guess that's what you could define a Fellini as discussing dirty. Greasy Belgian walking brute of pig a piece of shit. Okay. All right. All right. You could do. Hey. Hey. Whoa. Real real. Okay. Real as he lost. His magic powers now of coming on either ruining or saving games, though. He seemed like fucking three or four games is entire tenure. I I hope he lost his magical power to do that shit. This is a great time to fire his ass to let him go put him out on loan. It just shaved his only fucking semi noticeable qualities that isn't necessarily bad and shaved off his hair like shit. That hair was disgusting and dirty and greasy, but compared to the rest of him the hair was the only thing he had going for him. So Fellini's lost a lot of Zeidan ity. And I hope United uses this time to axiom. Okay. Well, that is what a flame is. We're still not sure he's you know, it's kind of like the like Bigfoot, you're like is he human is the ape like, we don't know. But moving on to Kyle Phillips of friend of the show best friends of Martin he asked the Premier League is considering changing the maximum number of foreign players from seventeen to twelve. I did not hear about this shit. Are y'all four I forgot Kyle's from North Carolina. Like, you are y'all are y'all for or against this. And why I'll I'll open up with this. I'm definitely against us. I think like America like USA. We are a melting pot and having less diversity is bad. And that is my campaign slogan for twenty twenty so sub guys vote vote. Go vote we talked about that. And if you don't we still won't know. You know? What what's up? I mean, I think that's pretty spot on statement right there and. The I don't even wanna fucking say foreigners coming into the English Premier League. But. People from other countries foreigners from other countries, whether it be Italy Spain, Russia, Germany, France, Switzerland, Sweden have all come into the Premier League and have become some of the best players in the Premier Li let alone the world you look at how this league has improved drastically since the nineteen eighties when it was mostly English homegrown players. And I think if you take out that identity. It destroys the identity of the Premier League, as you know, a melting pot of players the best players in the world. And then on the other hand only fucking reason I could ever think that banning banning foreign players are putting a quote on form players would be a good thing is because it allows and forces. A club to look inward to grow that youth product system and to really transform it into the main way of developing and creating superstars by making them go through your youth problem program, but other than that, this is a pretty shit idea. I'm not I'm not this is this because of Brexit. Oh, are we getting getting political on the podcasts? Are we are? We are we switching from sick to sports is it is politics coming into our world. Now Martin I I don't I don't like it. I don't I don't happen once before and I I I dislike it to all. I know all the news today was saying how much of a fucking shit show. It is over in England right now because of Brexit. So who the fuck knows Brexit makes me happy because I'm like shit. There's a lot of crazy shit going on our country. It's just nice to know that's happening. Elsewhere. So it gives me some type of like six as faction like all right? Like, thanks fucked up here, but it's fucked up everywhere else too. So don't forget that people things are fucked up everywhere. Yeah. I think about Arsene Wenger. He's like when the first side managers side Tinos completely non English. And he's been like he has the record for most non-english cited sides, you know, from the UK like he was like the first one if you look at mitt suppose eleven like almost every single player size a couple of repeats on France where all like from another country. So I, you know, I I look at any opportunity to bring up how great Arsene Wenger is now now that we can reflect on him and he's not a manager. I can hate so. Yeah. So Kyle shout out, man. I wanna drink with you sometime. I I kinda come down North Carolina. We talked about that Bros. Talking soccer. We did interview that podcast and we were talking about doing a reunion soon. Marin, I miss you, man. Did. I miss you too. All right. Drinking North Carolina's fun. Don't have a chance of getting mugged. You just kind of get lost and stumbled back home. Yeah. Dude, there's a fucking do. We talk about on this podcast. All these podcasts are running together. But there was like a shooting like right down the street here in south Philadelphia. Like like last weekend. Whereas like three kids got killed like eight blocks from here. I was like what the fuck. Clay why? Do not miss that. At all like fuck that should doesn't app, and you just have your neighbor shooting off guns from his porch at targets at ten in the evening, but he's not shooting to kill. He's just shooting shoot. I am because he was fucked up actually playing a lot of red red red dead redemption to and that sounds like my kind of party because that's all that happens. It just I think North Carolina like is just read redemption to where I can just go around robbing places with a bandana on just shooting guns and drinking moon shine so moving on to Instagram questioned from Mark dot Morgan zero. That's his Instagram handle. He says will rename bring Fulham out of relegation. And I think we I said, yes, definitely. But more. I think you were said, you weren't sure I think it's going to be super close. I'm not I'm not positive. But I think if if anybody could do it he can do it. He's he's the right man for the job. He knows how to lead a team like this. And with the talent that's around. Yeah. Why the fuck not believe in Claudio, dilly, dilly. Yeah. I I don't know. I have a what's it called pre pre could feeling Claudia's going to right the ship. I don't know, man. The guys just so fun. I honestly just want him in the Premier League. So I can hear some funny shit. He says. He's he's just so fucking funny. And if you get a chance just go like, I there's plenty of YouTube channels just go watch like highlights from their Premier Li winning season of twenty sixteen. It's honestly, it's hilarious. It's inspiring. And you know, it's it's pretty good. So moving onto our discord channel, which is like our chat room where people can go talk about beer soccer video games and shit. Just like a chat room for people who like the show, and you know, probably have similar interests checkout. Our discord channel the question is from the cutting stunt, I love this guy. I I wish I knew his real name. Is that weird to say? I don't know. It's just outta say whatever is marshy als four due to his powers gained from no November Martin. No because he was damned good three weeks ago. And that was right before no, not November. So man, people might be levitating and ship. But I think Marsha was masturbating furiously. Yeah. I think because of his form. Yeah. He had too much built up anger from Josie. Marina starting him. He was obviously letting it all out on the field and maybe elsewhere. I don't know. I can't I can't say but Marin is well, he says I know Martin is doing new November. But if him making that decision on his own, or is it the women he meets the siding. Oh, ooh. Ooh. The cutting stunt little little said a is that a low key jab? I think that is a high key. Wow. Do you bowl? You're going to answer the question. I I don't know if I can I need to like take it God damn drink or something. Hold on. Okay. It's a mixture of both. If you want to be perfectly honest. I was waiting for you. What you yes. But whatever, that's that's great. All right. He also says because we talked about doing our ESPN Ramsey says he says, I wouldn't be surprised if LeBron was top the ESPN AFC power ranking? But he didn't ask ESPN ever get LeBron's take out their mouth, well, cutting sent a soccer podcast. We would never get off tangent. It's anything else soccer. But no, it's deep inside their mouths. Very incredibly deep everywhere. I did like SPNFZ didn't like how you said deep. I don't know why. But it just imagine me reading like what's a what's that sex novel fucking not twilight fifty shades of grey. Yeah. Fifty shades of grey just. My skin is crawling. Like, it's really like coming off my body. All right, guys. That is our podcast. I hope you enjoyed it. I just want to make a few announcements were planning a lot of things for the podcast doing more of social media. So make sure check out our Twitter, Facebook and Instagram lads podcast, loud, Americans Cussing soccer, just do the ghoul. You'll find it. We posted funny shit on there. Sometimes maybe we're also we have a patriarch page where you can support the show. So we can do more things one things you want to bring back is definitely doing beer reviews. I know a lot of you guys liked it when we are trying different beers. Lena. What we thought or at least you could hear them. We're gonna stop just tricking like tonight, I drink, corona. I don't know a March drinking, but it's probably like cheer wine and vodka again in library. No, I'm classier than that right now. I'm drinking natty daddy's. Yes. So we're going to try and up our game because it was cool because we were getting sponsored and free beer from beer distributors. And we went up that. And we're also thinking of doing. Hats like talisman caps. We're also like, you know, fashion designers podcasters, so we're doing all sorts of shit. But we just want to say thank you guys for sticking along for this fucking show because it's been fun and we've been doing over a year. So is there anything else you wanna say Martin? I don't know. I I kinda just ramble there by what it let people know about shit's going on. We're probably going to do a reunion where meat market together for hopefully, the arsenal. Manchester United the lad starve, and I'll go down with Carolina Martin, I'll come up here to Philadelphia. And maybe we'll even do another life show because I was a lot of fun. Yeah. That's just try not to get drunk beforehand. Just don't show a Champions League final to us and have themed drinks that are cheap. That was a mistake on you guys on those tavern tavern on broad and also it was Liverpool losing and mine's a Manchester United fan. So it was just dispel disaster. And I was wearing my Manchester United jersey and flaunting it at all the Liverpool fans. It's just quick you're on the Mike. Sane sup Liverpool. You guys you guys law. And it's like literally like I would say what thirty forty Liverpool fans and that bar. Oh, yeah. It was you know, a game time decision. But don't regret it because I'm gonna take every chance that I get to ridicule and bad mouth Liverpool and Manchester City, plus I met Joe and being I don't know why fucking stuttered through that. Joel embiid. Joel Jill Joe, Joe. So it's easy. Joe Joe Embiid, and I just screamed all Allah Madrid and ran up to him. He was with zoo with fuck Covington who left. No. But that made me sad is shit. I'm gonna miss the shit out of Saroj. Well, whatever he's, you know, he's okay. But the dude he's he's he's okay. But is there anything else we have going on in the soccer world with us or? So I think that. I got it. I think wow. I've this is just on the basis. Yeah. I just this last minute just been us just like rambling. So whatever guys. This is good to know the real us like who we really are. So you know, if you don't like this, then please keep subscribing downloading us. All right. Love you guys.

57. The new mic episode!

"What's up everybody? Happy Money No sorry technically Tuesday. Planned to do the podcast yesterday I had some some technical issues Actually, had to go and get a brand new microphone. Yesterday so hopefully. this episode sounds better guys. I can retail for me at least this out a little bit clearer. You guys might hear a little bit more in the background now. Excuse me because my previous Mike. Was a little bit lower tech. So. This got this is Blue Yeti. Looks. Pretty Nice has a lot more features than my last Mike. Mike was a blue also blue snowball but. Me totally irrelevant I'm coughing don't have. Kobe. Just, Kinda ramblers, there's much drinking a lot but. During a lot of water. But he has yesterday couldn't do the show. Try to order a Mike. Was GonNa go to best buy. Walmart but every place that I looked I in order to get it delivered like show up on Thursday or Friday or whatever else they looked at target. Target was able to get delivered to me like a few hours later. So I actually got the microphone last night, but I was doing stuff with the wife to not record the podcast last night. But here we are Brandon Mike hopefully it sounds better. Do you guys to me? It's already sounding a little bit better. Yes. I'm sorry I apologize was able to do the show yesterday I tried a really did. I probably recorded a good. Ten to fifteen minutes worth of the show and I could hear like this terrible like. Feedback East staticky sound in my headphones. And Yeah so I had to completely. Get rid of the Audio I wasn't GonNa put that out because it was terrible. Now kind of feel bad because I'm like coughing. Years I apologize for that. But on with the show. So this past weekend. Like on Friday. My wife, we had a little date night. GotTa wishing the kids we just went to a restaurant to uber. So we can have some drinks had a couple of Margaritas was pretty nice. Actually had. What was called the Dose Rita. So it's like a Margarita with a dose cheque's in it. And that had you know feeling pretty good. Food is great at this place. Just me and the wife spend some time together it was it was very, very nice and then Saturday. Watched a bunch of matches as many as I could. You know just kind of relaxing hanging out. There was a lot of lot of going on this weekend Premier League start obviously. La Liga's well and. This going to get into it. Started off with match day three from Leon in. France. Let's see. We had Bordeaux. Zero. Leone zero. Mount Pelly three to one over niece said T. N. two. Zero over Strasbourg Lille. One mets zero. On gears one rims zero. Dijon? Breast to. If see Laurente Laurenti. Terrible these names two to three. Against Lynn's. Names, loss. fortitude to win. Monaco beat no two to one and in A. Crazy crazy match actually. Loss. One Zero to Marseille. Now, this game was in Paris. I did not get to watch this match. I actually saw some of the highlights afterwards but the the big the craziness with this match was that. In the last. I mean, it was actually an extra time. Or. You know stoppage-time at the end of the game there were five red cards given out. I mean, it was it was pretty nuts like like I said I didn't watch the match I just saw. something. I, got an alert on my phone telling me that you know Neymar got kicked out of the match. And that you know there's just a bunch of budget craziness going on apparently one of the players on Marseille. Said some some racist stuff to Neymar. Obviously, no neymars Brown duties not GonNa, take it and. He just basically I didn't see that part but. You know they were just kind of going at each other so. Live in Kazaa, paradise, Neymar, all got rid cards. The game was the last one to get a red card. He got like nine minutes after the ninety. But in addition to the five red cards. was also fourteen yellow cards and a bunch of fouls in this match. like I said Marseilles one. One Zero. They scored in the thirty first minute to win it and PSG. Not doing too well I. mean you know they didn't lose too many games last year the season was abbreviated. But they still only lost three matches. I mean I don't know what the CBO PSG. They lost their first match to Lynn. one, two, zero. Also you know they've had these Kogo nineteen. Positive test pop out. You know they had six that tested positive after going to be beezer. Would you know? Like one of the three party islands. From Spain in the Mediterranean, there's my Orca Minorca and he a. so my York Minorca you can kind of take your family's to whatever. I don't think families go to ABC. I'm pretty sure you know all the time that I spent in Germany I never knew anybody like. A with kids to take their family to be new couples that went there because you know people still like the party, but visa is like a party island. Now, you add covid nineteen into it. I'm not exactly sure what's going on I know. Not Too long ago. My ORCA was Kinda shutdown? That's all their force for tourists. But. They went and partied after losing the. The Champions League final and. A bunch of them came back positive including you know de Maria Neymar or Neymar. was able to to play in this game him in De Maria. But still missing him bobby he tested positive after playing for France in the UEFA nations. League. But they're still missing a bunch of people. They've lost their first of the season, which is crazy. Nobody would ever think that you know right now psg would be sitting. I think they're in the burn. Zone? Yeah. It's only two matches, but it's still something crazy to see something that you only see before the season starts when you're looking at the table and it's an alphabetical order you expect to see. PSG. That low after two games you expect PSG. To be on top had scored lease. Four to five goals. And you know having a minimum of six points four, the worst you know. But they're not they're not doing good. They're they're definitely struggling and I. Still Think Personally I think they're still going to win the league. But this definitely makes it a little bit more difficult. You know hopefully in the next ten days or so those players that they're missing get to come back. But Marseille, their biggest rival in France they definitely have the upper hand now. We'll see what comes out of all these red cards if there's any additional suspensions given down by the League. But yeah, it was not. So I go look for for PSG so. Moving onto the premier league. Match Day One I was looking forward to it. You know arsenal finished off the end of last season winning the FA Cup. They started this season winning the community shield. which is always great. You know it for me seeing the of the FA Cup, beat the winners of the League especially when it Liverpool. Would have been better for Tottenham but. Is Always you know just nice to see plus you know it's my team Arsenal so pretty excited. Fulham hosted arsenal. Arsenal winning there and did their thing arsenal three Fulham's zero. Burnley versus Manchester. United that game was postponed. In addition so was. Manchester City. Aston Villa those two games were postponed they haven't rescheduled them as far as I know sorry about the car noise driving down the street. Let's see we at Crystal Palace one Southampton Zero. West Ham zero. Newcastle to. West Brom Zero Lesser City three. Tottenham lost to Everton one zero which supplies. new-look Everton though so And a yesterday, we had Sheffield United Hosting Wolves. Wolves one to zero, and then Brandon Hobie in one Chelsea three. The match that I watched to. Say I didn't get the to catch all of the Arsenal match but. I did watch. All. Of. Liverpool. Hosting Leeds United. So I know, I've talked on the podcast about the. The leads Docu series that was on. Her name was I think it was Amazon prime. And you know how good it was. You know team that phone from Greece and new owner. and. I knew a lot of the players on the team from watching that documentary plus like most people have. This I don't know I just don't like Liverpool. Wanted to see them come out and do well. I didn't expect much from leads and they shocked the hell out of me so. I literally was just expecting lead to come out a little rusty look like they didn't know they were doing. You know you still have a Liverpool. They're still though the world champion technically they're the premier league champions. Top team versus a newly promoted team. And I gotTA. Say leads came out and they. They stuck with it. I mean they they literally played brand of football that liberal wasn't expecting them to come out with and it was it was a great match. I mean they were going back and forth now Muhammad Selah Great Player clearly one of the best players in the world. Scored actually had a hat-trick. Tool this goals came off a penalties and the other one that he had was just it was phenomenal. It was something like something off a fever now I'm not I'm not a big muhammed saw like hater. I hate the fact that please Liverpool but. He, he did put on a show, but that's second penalty to me was a little suspect. Is. In. The end it was Liverpool for leads three. It was a great match. Definitely makes me want to continue watching leads in the. Premier League. That will definitely be watching them two times that they play arsenal but. You know as long as matches don't clash with a arsenal matches, I will probably definitely be following them because. They're they're manager Bielsa he's I don't know. He's just brought something new something exciting to the Premier League. These these players they're not like. You. Know they're not players that are household names outside leads. you know Calvin Phillips. He you know he got a his first cap for England in the nation's League and. I don't know it's exciting. It's good to see something new something. I guess something you kind of have a little history with that I do from that Docu series but. That was a great match I mean that was probably one of the best matches that I've seen as like a neutral. In a long time, basically because I wasn't expecting any of that to happen now leads never had the lead in the match, but they definitely should my personal opinion they should have got out of there were one point. It was a little upsetting the that that second penalty. Derail that but. They played well Kudos to them, and like I said I'm looking forward to to seeing them in the future so. All right. We also had. A League Match Day One. You know after the whole. Soap opera with messy that went on for a few weeks. Kind of looking forward to seeing you know everybody kind of jump back in but. Couple, of matches postponed two matches postponed. And then a third was later rescheduled for January. But let's see we got eibar and tell the Vigo played to a zero zero draw. Are Not to athletic. Bilbao. Zero. Cadets zero. To. Alabama zero the bet this one. By the lead in Real Sociedad play a one one draw. Barcelona and it. That destroyed that name. That matches postponed as Real Madrid had taffy match. villareal in whisker plead to a one one draw and then Balenciaga four Levante to and athletic. Madrid. Will play against severe. But as of right now that matches schedule. I think the middle of January so mash day one. Just. Like in basically every other league I don't think it's going to happen in Germany and probably not in the in in Italy but. The other three leagues the other three of the Big Five, they have matches that are going to be postponed. Pro You know well into the future because of covid and you know, and this is this is the start of the season. So who knows, what's GonNa Happen? Once the season kicks off if there's any positive tests or Players. Just I don't know anything can happen because it sounded plane in a bubble do not playing in neutral city so. There could be some type of you know city statute or city law or measure that gets put in place to prevent those from from happening. So with that being said though. Cereal's starts this coming weekend they're set to begin on. Saturday. Two matches on Saturday Fiorentina. Hosting Torino and then Hellas arena versus Roma. And then on Sunday four matches, we got Parma versus Napoli Geno Overseas Cra. Tony. Wallover Calgary. Event Versus Doria, and then Monday. We have a Milan hosing Bologna. Then on Wednesday got three matches midweek. Benevento hosting Inter Milan as a versus spots here and lots yovany Atlanta so. Definitely on Wednesday I'm definitely GONNA try to catch those matches as long as the other ones don't clash with. Bundesliga starting this weekend. We'll. See. Plus you know other matches coming up in the Premier League probably GonNa Watch. Plus as much as I hate to admit I don't really watch too much Syria. But who knows maybe this weekend? And might get a chance of my just catch a game. I don't know. We'll see so but speaking a which. Bundesliga starting this weekend. you know. So League that I followed the closest. But we got starting Friday Byron Munich Housing Shoka. Then on Saturday got seven matches clone versus often high union, Berlin Augsburg Eintracht Frankfurt, versus Armenia Bielefeld. Bremen versus Berlin. My Team Fifty Stu guard hosting board. Are Bitter rivals in baden-wuerttemberg I'll get to that in a second but who she had Dorfman hosting Bruce Gladbach And then on Sunday, we have our. Minds and then Wolfsburg versus Beyer Leverkusen. So, one of the reasons that don't like Fribourg. One of the. Most. Stewart. Fast Freiburg because they're. The team from Baden-wuerttemberg. That's consistently in the Bundesliga because there's like Karlsruhe, there's other teams Hof time whatever. But. I went to a match the first match that I went to. when I moved back to guard for the third time back in two thousand fifteen. I got there like right. Towards the end of the Fourteen fifteen season. So Stewart is hosting Freiburg I went with a friend of mine and some of his work colleagues and For those that don't know in Europe. They have for the away supporters. There's usually a separate section of the stadium that is always dedicated to the away fans and they have fences around them. Some of them have barbed wire on the top and they're usually police lining them like you'll see it if you watch it on. TV. So we were actually sitting closest to the away fans. Now Steve. Kerr. Won That match two zero it was. But in like the last five minutes. Fribourg scored like two goals. Now. They are the one of them was I don't know I don't think it was far. But one of them was was taken away because of something that happened and the second was taken away because of it was off side. And let me tell you the fans from Fribourg. -rupt it could feel the heat and the anger coming off of them. Please I could from where I was sitting. and. So typically like with a team like that a team from within the same state. They. Will take the sections to the right to the left of them and they won't put home supporters in those in those stands. So they did that but we were still. Close enough to them that like you could look in people like you could see people is like that's how close we were and there was this one dude. And I will never forget this as long as I lived. Guy Locked eyes. And he gave me this look like he wanted to kill me like it was April. And this guy didn't have shirt on I. Remember it was it was Kinda. Cool. You know it wasn't. It wasn't wasn't born I mean it's Germany and. Ahead like a Hoodie on and this guy had his shirt off US clearly drunk and he just looked at me like if the fence, the police, the ushers, the the stands if all of wasn't between me and him. He was going to murder me. And I just remember him like giving me the finger and I'm just looking at him like do them just see your like enjoying the game? What are you doing? And he just kept. I don't know what it was about me. He might even looking at me but it felt like he was like, he this guy wanted to murder me. and. They had a sign that said Fishing Astute Guard is like. The name comes from raising stud horses in there. So it's like Stud Garden. But. They put like a pig. So like the the the city flag for guard has it kind of looks a lot like the the Ferrari. Symbol. Mustang basically, and it's yellow and black, and but they took it and they put like a pig on it and called it sh- winegarden because it's how you say Ping German and waving this flag anyway they they can't stand us. We hate them and I say us even though I'm not living right now but that's my home away from home. It's my second home and Yet it was. It was like one of the craziest things in the world. But that's one of the things that I love absolutely love about football in Europe is that there are always those moments like that where it's just. You know feel like you don't really get that. A lot of times in American sports but. That's one of the reasons why I cannot stand. Fribourg. So whenever we Stick our can finish above the table. Of them in the table, it's it's always great. Doesn't happen very often especially, you know when we were getting relegated or whatever, but It's just great and you know hopefully this weekend, they'll be able to go in there I mean the game is institute guard, but hopefully to Google play them hard. Get Out of there were three points and embarrassed them at the same time. Excuse me. Jumping on him and talk about some transfers. Not going into all the crazy rumors. because there's a lot of out there but you know we'll touch on a couple Let's see. So event has terminated the contract of Gonzala he. He had one year remaining on his contract I. Guess it was mutual BA right now. Guess apparently he's in Miami already and he's expected to sign for Inter Miami play in the MLS. So that makes him an Marta weedy. Two event is players. Going to David Beckham's MLS, bringing more stars bringing more names s these guys are getting older, but it doesn't matter. They're still great football players and I'm excited to see what they're going to bring to the MLS and. When exactly that they're gonNA start playing like he just left I guess. He's waiting on a medical or to sign the contract not exactly sure but He isn't longer playing in Europe. He is playing now in south Florida. PSG they sent Alfonse Ariola to promoted Fulham. On loan with an option to. Buy. This is a complete shock to me. He. Goes back to he was on loan spell to Real Madrid but he's been. On loan off and on since two thousand thirteen, which I did not know I thought. That was. A great goalkeeper, but then I realized that the reason that I know his name is because a lot of times when I'm doing career moves in FIFA. I will scoop him up because he's a he's a goalkeeper. That's good. Doesn't cost much. So because he's always my goal gave and fever. I that's why I knew his name I guess I just thought so much better because he always performs well for me and I know this sounds crazy but. And I thought he was a number one goalkeeper but you know whatever. So he's moving to the premier league though which is good you know doesn't matter for your on a newly promoted side or not Premier League is primarily so and Hopefully they don't end up going back down to the championship next season so. We'll see we'll see what happens with him. All right. So the Gareth Bale drama. Still going on. I just read something before i. came here that. Real Madrid trying to get him moved back to the Premier League. Possibly rumor that Tottenham has opened up the idea of sending Deli to Real Madrid four or as part of a deal. To get. To get. Gareth. Bale to return to London. So. The problem with bail though is wages dude he makes entirely too much money. That's why I thought. You know a couple of seasons ago when they were talking about sending him to China, it worked out for everybody it work Real Madrid because they would have got that wage bill off their books it would order for China is bringing in a big name good player and would've worked for bail because he would have been making a million dollars or euros or whatever a week. So it was like a win win win for everybody but for whatever reason, the president of Real Madrid was like. I don't I don't like money and I just want this guy to sit on my bench and not play so. There he's still there. So we'll see what happens the next couple of weeks. It could be nothing but who knows maybe he'll be you know back in London playing for Josie Marino next couple of weeks. All right last but not least right before I started recording. Got A notification that PM Balmy Yang sign a new deal with Arsenal. He'll be at the club until twenty twenty three. And Coming off the back of the or you know the back of last season and the beginning of this one FA Cup. Community Shield. Big Win Against Fulham to start the premier league season. He's the captain so it allowed. Hopefully lead to a good season. That's one less thing that arsenal fans and the organization actually has to worry about and. We'll see we'll see what happens. Hopefully it means a means good things for the club, but that drama is finally over and can move forward now. So. I'm going to take a quick break and I will be back in a second. All right welcome back. Before the show there's something I was thinking about that I just Kinda WanNa. Put out there I don't know why. But I've been thinking about this allegedly maybe because you know sports right now is kind of weird and. Just like a whole bunch of stuff going on. But I was thinking about the concept of All Star Games. So. In football, you don't really have them. The MLS does they have an annual all star game where then take their best players typically the play against another team from Europe or whatever during the summer it'll be summertime for the players coming from Europe it'll be like midway through the season for the MLS players. So it's kind of in line with the rest of American sports aside from the NFL pro bowl, which plays they're all star game at the end of the season Major, League Baseball the National Basketball Association National Hockey League they all play their all star Games in the middle of the season. Excuse me now the MLS used to do in all star game like an east versus West like you know the rest of North American sports does but I was thinking like. Specifically talking about Europe for example, they could do something like. have an all-star type tournament. Now. You could say, Oh, well, you know you're has the euros or whatever but I'm talking about like club level right so I was thinking I'm doing a lot of thinking about this I don't know why. But right now in Europe you have every two years you have a major tournament either have the World Cup or you have the euros and then you know let's say before covert happened. Next summer. was supposed to be the the fee for club World Cup. Now because covid. Everything's kind of moved and pushed a little bit. So they will take a little bit to implement this but imagine so you have three three years where you have tournaments. Consecutively for Summer World Cup. Club World Cup? Euros. then. There's that fourth summer that's essentially open and free, right? So imagine if you wafer. took. They have that Coefficient thing the coefficient ranking imagine if they took that coefficient ranking in said, Hey, these top eight leagues. We'll just take eight because it's an easy number. We're going to put together a tournament. And you give us your. You know. All Star team for your top league. So right now the UEFA Coefficient and for those either don't know the US. Fishing issues determine basically how many slots Leagues get for the Champions League. That's why Spain England Italy Germany. Four automatic spots for the group stage for the Champions League but then France only gets three you know and it depends on how how your league professor in the tournaments and that gives you points and you can move up and down the coefficient that that's a whole nother. Completely, that would take two hours to explain but right now, the top eight teams in order based on the UEFA Coefficient are Spain. England Italy Germany. France and those are the big five top five leagues in Europe. Then you've got Portugal Russia and Belgium? So in you know those can move around based on how clubs from their countries perform in. UEFA competitions. So just imagine every four years on that four summer where there is no tournament. You take. A. All. Star team from Lolita. The Premier League Syria. Bundesliga League. The Portuguese league the Russian Premier League. And then the Belgian league and you put them in an eighteen tournament single elimination to determine. Essentially which league is the best in Europe. Once every four years. Just thinking about that. It's something that will never happen probably. Because, who cares for soft the players aren't GonNa want to do something like that because it's more games to play. The the league's might like it because of exposure plus if you're the the league that wins, you know obviously you can have bragging rights for four years. The. Clubs aren't going to like it because essentially they're not getting a cut in on that UEFA would love it because it's more money but like I said, it's just something that I was thinking about. Let. Me Know what you guys think I know it sounds like a crazy idea. It it is. It's so much of a North American sports side thing because in Europe they don't do author games like that. So but yeah, I was just thinking about that and so. You guys. Let me know. Let me know what you guys think and You know just just hit me up on instagram or twitter email. I'll leave all that in the show notes like I always do so. But that's it. For this week next week I'll give you my predictions how I think the top five leagues in Europe we're going to play out. In. More results from. This Coming weekend so. You guys have a great. Week. Kept, some of the Bundesliga matches their starting this week. As well as premier, Li. League in Lalita. Take care of yourselves take care of your family's. Wash your hands wash your mass. Thanks for listening thirty next week.

Hey I'm competitive and I'm frazier and we are loud Americans. Discussing soccer better known as labs. Today is Wednesday February nineteenth twenty twenty from South Boston and Mooresville North Carolina and Martin. We have a chance to make it into the Champions League now. Well let's be honest. Out of Tottenham Chelsea United and Arsenal. One of us just has to get that last. Champions League spot like if we don't if Sheffield beaches in the Woods Wolves Peterson. We should just be relegated on fucking well. We've said before. Maybe we just go down with the ship and we just take united Me Arsenal and just throwing West Ham there do. We've talked about that before they're just a team. Whose been due to get relegated for a while and if you are listening at home and you don't know what we're referring to Manchester City just received the long dick of the law from UEFA a two year European ban so champions league ban in a thirty million dollar fine which is nothing but the fine doesn't mean anything but two years of Champions League football so Martin I just WanNa get your. I can only imagine what your initial reaction but I'm let you say it on in front of the microphone when this news dropped. I personally I'll talk about my feelings. I couldn't believe it. Yeah man I mean first and foremost. It's just overwhelming joy. Like I've talked shit about twenty twenty being shot year. I've talked about this season being absolutely depressing but this just lifts my spirits like nobody's business now with that being said I never million years expected this common. I just did not expect us. This has never happened before For UEFA to just come down hard as shit. Aw Man City is surprising to me. I mean last year we saw with Chelsea and their transfer man. I don't think anybody saw that coming. So it looks like a UEFA is now done fucking around with fines and they're thrown out some real deal punishment so big big news. I'm a Manchester City. We always knew. They violated the financial. Fairplay laws I mean. That's that's just a given but Ufo's fine them a couple of times before but the fact of the matter is money doesn't mean a God damn thing to Manchester City. They find thirty five million dollars this time around. In addition that two year ban. Yeah they're spending thirty million dollars on lawyers alone trying to appeal it so the money Punishment doesn't mean we Martin. You should've seen it because I know you don't use social media but there is a video of the man city lawyers like going to UEFA. There was thirty of them. I'm not even joking. There was like an army and there was a great tweet. I don't forget who said but someone said like only man city would have more lawyers so I am just I really don't know God bless you. Wow I couldn't believe that I mean man said he's going to fight this tooth and nail. They're going to appeal it. I've heard a lot of people say it's going to be dropped down to a one year ban In just a fine but this has crazy ramifications and my first reaction to this was peps. Gone they that was for sure so he's going back to Barcelona. People were not too fond of sorry in Syria. I mean pep can pretty much walk in any place and get a job. That's there's no question about that But I also have to take the count. The players like pep showed up demand city to win the Champions League and now that's not in reached at in the current state. And so yeah I think about like Kevin Debroy. Nah Is he going to go somewhere? I've heard like Real Madrid Which I think would be a great fit Also over him sterling You GotTa think about all these young players. I think John was already gone. He's going to buyer Munich obviously But Yeah what do you? What do you think is going if this does happen? Do you see a mass exodus happening. A Man City. I mean there's so much to cover this one store. It's the biggest soccer story there are. That's happened probably since you've discussed and down. Yeah Yeah Adam Johnson got sent to jail for touching kitties this is. This is big big news. I mean I think the immediate results of this if this is upheld like if the appeal process is unsuccessful. I think that we are going to see that mass exodus. I mean we saw that mass exodus when it came in and kicked all the shitty players out. It's part two now. All the good players are going out and away. Don't blame him Martin and you know there's there's a quick thing I want to say about PEP KIP kicking out. All the former players. There was a tweet that said pep was from Yahya Tories agent saying that. Yeah he loved he put in. Yes so yeah yeah Tory who was essentially expunged again by PEP Guardiola after being expunged from Barcelona Said that your Tories agent put on a African curse that he will never win the Champions League. I The tweet was never mess with Africans which I think is the most accurate thing you could say in this moment. I think it's I think whatever Voodoo or whatever happened. It's it's happened now. Yeah I I just I mean it's it's just truly Julie something out of this world that only Voodoo or black magic would Explain so I mean this. This is directly a result of an African curse that y'all Tories agent put on Pep Guardiola and So now we're seeing the consequences of it in real time. I think there are going to be a mass player exodus. I think you're GonNa see the likes of Leroy. On Bernardo Survey Davidoff is already leaving Guero Raheem Sterling All. Try and leave if this ban is upheld. So I'm really comes down to what the manager and the upper management of the club can do to limit the damages. You know like if if they can convince these players to stick it out. Aguayo said back in twenty working. He's sticking with this club until he brings them. Champions League that shit ain't look unlikely now And I really do not think. This plastic Team can maintain their fans or their players to be perfectly honest. If there's been rumors sprinkled around here and there that Manchester City might even be relegated. Manchester City might have their titles stripped from them. Can this fanbase survived this fiasco and I think the answer is no? I think it seemed like event is the Old Lady. With just a immaculate storied. History can't survive that they were able to survive relegation. And we're able to bounce up to Siri all and bounce back to the Champions League finals. Pretty Damn quickly. I don't think this Manchester City team can do that unless you know. They violate financial fair. Play laws again. I think for the first time ever. Uefa is now looking at the Saudi Arabian oil money coming into leagues around the world whether it's PS g whether it's Manchester City and finally being like okay. We've turned the other cheek enough but y'all have not learned your lesson. Yaw arnauts stopping this shit and it's time for you guys to get the big bad punishment and the question is for me. What the fuck is going to happen? Psg because peel is just as bad as Manchester two more and they must be shitting their pants right now. Yeah once common. I don't know if UEFA is just making man city the example and letting everyone around the league's no like hey this can happen to you. You know what I mean but I would be. If I'm a Man City Fan. I would be I- rates right now because there are tons of clubs and specifically PS G. Who are doing these things? These financial fair play violations. But I think Man City was more they were I think he was from two thousand twelve to two thousand sixteen and they were like falsifying like money or records or something like that. I'm not smart enough. You look more into it. I didn't know what the ramifications are so If I'm PS G. or if I'm like I don't know like Barcelona Real Madrid where I've heard rumors of them. Also doing it or some of the other big clubs I in day. Don't get anything then I would be if I'm a Man City Fan. I'm pissed you know what I'm saying. Yeah all three of them are about to be real pissed off at these other teams that are obviously violating. Some financial. Fair played doctrine. And I mean in all honesty I think. A lot of the club's violate those laws. And some respect I mean Manchester United for one they just spend just gorgeous money here and there but somehow they do it within the regulations. So it's not really about the amount of money that these teams are spending. But it's how they're getting this money how they're spending this money and from what. I read Manchester City is using it. Investors money to buy players to buy Stadium upgrades rather than using the club's money. So they're kind of circumvented the standard of where you get that money from so instead of it coming from like a business standpoint. It's just random oil sheiks thrown in some money. Buying a team binds some players and not the club by players so if. Ps Jews during the same shit. They're shutting their pants right now on the excited for this. I love me some drama especially drama. We talk about this all the time to have all this soccer drama. It's real of Orange County for us. It's just bomb. It's great television while I'm a real housewife of New York Fan. Because I'm a stand so I stand with Beth and I know but anyway doesn't doesn't Doesn't matter anyway what I'm trying to say is there's also like hit home for Americans to who know nothing about soccer because the whole I know this is crazy. I've never spoken about baseball. Sized Talking Shit on it and I have a perfect example about the Houston. Astros getting like no punishment of Punishment to the players know punishment to Taking away like world was the the national what it was. When when you in the baseball world series yeah the world series titles Daytona pray for that one guy? I don't there's some guy whose like being awaken. He's talking to people he's all right good. I just watch versus for our ISA. I'm very much into cars right now. So yeah I just rented it the other night Christian Bale Demon on ps four. Yeah Oh Word City. I got tonight plans after the show. Let's go yeah honestly blown away. It was it was a very good movie. It was cheesy cheesy points but like the good kind of cheesy. We're like all right. This is fun. I'm having fun and you know he lost the race. He came in second by the way I did. I did not know that. Spoiler Jesus Martin Yeah. Well it's not shown in the movie but He wins the race. But Ford wanted there to be a photo moment so they told miles To actually slow down mark this is this is this. The people have to know all three fords had to finish the across the finish line at. I'm names on so they could take pictures and be like fords the best and so everybody slow down and teller actually got a time penalty at the end so we actually finished second and he got his when taken away from him. Won't you just boiled the entire movie? New Ford was going to beat Ferrari. Let's be honest. Well of course mar worst movie. But that's like the most year the fucking worst anyway back to soccer Torturous Ferrari I guess. I'M GONNA have to edit into skip that I probably won't but shout out to you for though they can't like take care of like racism problems but God damn if they won't drop the hammer like usually it's like You know like what happened the Chelsea like oh a like a transfer ban or even a C Milan banned from Europa League. But Champions League I. I was listening to Gab MARCATTI ON ESPN. And he said that you know we're just talking about the players leaving men city. Would this sounds crazy? Martin might have to sell the players because they might lose up to three hundred million dollars over the next two years. So it's like a hundred and fifty million one hundred fifty million Just from the lack of money they would make from Champions League revenue from the Games and television and everything like that so and plus. The fines are going to get each year so they may even have to sell these players to get because I mean Kevin Lebron's rather their weekly wages are ridiculous so I don't know like perfectly you live by the sword. You Die by the sword. I mean when they came in in two thousand eight and and bought Manchester City and started by all these players. Starting off with Shay Given Stephen Ireland's progressing to a guero zed avid Silva's yacht torres. Getting Katy B Leroy Sauna Sauna Raheem Sterling Claudio Bravo Edison I mean everybody knew something was shady. So they live by that soared. They live by that philosophy. Now they're gonNA die by this philosophy and you know what they got nobody to blame but themselves like everybody knew. This wasn't allowed so no sympathy in all honesty. No Suzy at all. It was almost like the mafia where it's like. You knew they were doing it wrong. But you're paying off the cops which you Asia and they just turned a blind I you know I thought it was just like you know some soprano shit like you know. This is just the way but I guess not I guess. People came a knockin and sh- Like Jimmy Hoffa an Irishman. I just walked out the other night to get all my Oscar movies in spoiler Jimmy Hoffa goes missing at the end anyway. what's it called? Let's talk about. I have another news story. We have tons of other stuff to talk about the show. We have the Big Chelsea Manchester United Debacle. We have to talk about. Vr again We have arsenal actually winning for the first time this year. Why owed Tottenham with a last minute win by home means sown. Who MIGHT BE OUT? He is out for the year now with a broken arm. Which sucks for Tottenham Fans But before that I have one more news story which I thought we'd bring up because you know we love talking about horrible things going on in world soccer specifically with racism so Martin. I'm sure you've heard about this story about Porto's Moussa Mara. I'm probably mispronouncing it. But have you heard about this? Yeah Yeah so essentially. He likes score the winning goal and like he was getting like Muggy chancer like racial slurs thrown at him. And he just walked off the pitch. His teammates were trying to force him to stay on the pitch which was kind of like soft move by the players. They should have walked off with them. But the earth is like no like. I guess we'll finish the game But essentially Mussamreva responded on instagram. He said to those idiots that go to the stadium shout racist insults. Go Fuck yourselves. I'm also grateful to the REF for not defending me and forgive me a yellow card for defending my skin color. I have I never see you on a pitch again. You're a disgrace and followed up by a picture of him flipping off the. What's it called the fancy so Obviously the home fans who were yelling racial slurs at him so again. We've another example of horrible racism going on in the world and example of players not really responding well or doing things and does all sorts of shots to him for coming out and being like you know usually players will call off when just give like the typical like pr response and he said. Fuck that now you. I'm giving you the I'm giving you the woodshed. Yeah I mean have you watched the video itself I mean. It's all over the twitter and Youtube. Instagram would have you. I'm sure it's on facebook to It's it's really. It's really heartbreaking. Because you see this man Moraga Obviously distraught obviously just heartbroken that his former former teams fans he played for Victoria last year scored twenty five goals for them a now. His Ex fans are chanting racist. Shit at at him. And so he's obviously distraught just heartbroken trying to leave the pitch and the players and the rest are trying to force him on. That ship was the worst part for me like Show some solidarity Show some loyalty to your team and I mean it it just goes to show that somehow UEFA somehow The Portuguese League or is able to implement so many things whether it's punishments for teams violating the laws whether it's v. a. r. whether it's international campaigns to say no to racism. But they really can't do anything day in and day out for these races events like how many times this year loan have seen this shit. How many times this year alone has the shift gone unreported and shown? Yeah it's just. It's just stupid that I mean. We have cameras everywhere. Yeah how can we not identify the people that are doing this Shit Gara you you and you your racist assholes? You can't watch soccer anymore. All right sound good goodbye. I mean it's that fucking simple that you would think. Yeah there's really just a super easy way to read out weed out. Racism ban the fuckers like it's that fucking easy and revenue is everything fans are everything towards the club. It's a business. Even the League in itself they need that revenue. They need those fans shown up. So they're gonNA Kinda say all the Pr Shit. They'RE GONNA say. Say No to racism. Everybody's the same team. We support our teammates but at the end of the day there hasn't been a single positive step towards eliminating that shit we see it. In International Games. We see hidden every legal Across the world I mean Fuck. Keep it simple stupid. Just kick him out. That's all that has to be done. Yeah and I I in this story. I saw the majority of people like supporting Mussa saying like you know players who walked off. And you know there's ban those fans should be banned forever like you're saying but Martin real quick. I posted a quote on our facebook page which had a lot of people saying the same things. We're saying like fuck those racist or piece of shit like spoil before Mussa. Can I read the Guy who's defending the fans real quick because this guy one of the most this is one of the most insane and oddest takes namedrop. I won't name drop them. Oh named it's I can't pronounce it though it's like Jo Malone Ju- i- Adelie I totally butcher that anyway. This is what he said. Put three more comments that were even longer than this and kept double the heat tripled down on this. Martin. You're ready. He said he's a very stupid guy. The club should sack him. He celebrated in front of the rival fans and the fans reacted badly. But this show continues. He's not the only one that experiences racism I this is. This is hard all right. He goes on but people like him think that the color of their skin is the most important thing in the world he. He disrespected his club by leaving the match and he has a duty to stay do. The job he was paid to do other players get abused all the time. But because it's not racially then it's okay. And because they are big babies they react like adult continues acting like this. He will ruin his career. Just like Bala. Tally are watch this. Watch this Portuguese league you're banned from our show weird guy that it's that simple. Oh God he he goes on. He puts you more comments. I responded with the Billy Madison. Like that is the single. Most stupidest thing I've ever seen. We are all dumber now because of you. I I guess his argument is just like do your job. And he says racism. Isn't that big of a deal where it's literally biggest deal ever? It's been the biggest deal for the past like thousands of years while we still have conflicts. Today he's just saying nope. Just just ignore racism. Everyone else is doing it. It's like why like this? Is What an insane horrible. Just take I I just can't I just had I just wanted to relieve that because I was just like flabbergasted I was. I could not believe what I was reading. Marin what I was reading Martin people are stupid. I'm in just. The Stupidity of average people amazes me every single day and You just haven't been one of those guys Name I can't pronounce an either and it just goes to show. There was one players get abused all the time but if it's not racial it's no big deal don't man because you can Kevin. I've talked about this before whenever Kevin. I go watches sports. You know whether it's hockey basketball soccer football what have you. We abused the shit out of players but never once is it about their skin or ethnicity. We'll talk just dumb shit to them like that just water. That's fine do that all you want. But there is no reason to go into the fucking racial tones of Shit. I don't even like curse comment. I mostly yelled the raft of bullshit call or like. Oh that's like an pussy shit like you know like yeah. That's that's like I wouldn't talk about another player's mother or something like that or call them. Watch their mother that line. Well then. You're the one where we're like member we said like episodes ago. I don't know when he said that like a player is a lot of punch one fan of young Martin. You're you're thrown me. That'd be the best day of my life said Cristiano. Renaldo like your. Your mother would fuck me quicker than you can run across the field. If he punched me I would frame that picture of me. Just getting absolutely body slammed by that behemoth of a man. Just don't any race into it and anyway we had some games this weekend. We're GONNA START OFF with Chelsea versus Manchester United Manchester United with the big two goal. Lead our two-goal wind my apologies and yes lab head with the goal. Martin I brought up slab head obviously want to get to the whole red card ordeal but Do you believe there's a lot of controversy over this game and Chelsea fans feel as though they were screwed over by Var and you're a big hater of VR and people are saying the VR helped men. You win this game. What are your thoughts on this whole game once again? We talked about this before just because I you know a Manchester United Fan and simultaneously hate. Vr doesn't mean. I can just hate the moment where. Vr saved her Maguire's ASS I mean first and foremost that could have been a red cord. That could have been a no foul call. We've seen that That level of violent conduct again and again throughout the entire season of of the program and to be perfectly honest. Vr GIVES RED CARDS FOR RANDOM SHIT and doesn't give any cords for Other random shit so literally. It's just a toss up there's no consistency in Vr. Obviously I hate. Va are obviously. That's the wrong call in my opinion but I mean Shit. You can't be mad at Manchester United. You can't be mad That va or so fucked up and blame it on Manchester United. They got an advantage for that. No no doubt and they were obviously paid for it or Chelsea obviously paid for it No doubt I mean this. This game once again was plagued by. Va once again we're talking about VR instead of the game itself I mean drew had a goal pulled back from for Ah VR mistake Mason. Mount had a goal ruled out because The Ref thought his hand touch the ball. But it didn't touch the ball and there was no. Va or intervention so there is truly no consistency in Vr. Somehow Premier League is literally the only league in the world learn. Even the World Cup can do it right. Prem just is just just awful at it man it's been bad. It's been bad this year. So other you you drop that Shit entirely next year which. I think he should do or you just copy. Whatever the Germans are doing the Germans usually get it right maybe not in the nineteen forties but they usually get this technology. I to you know I to invent things I implement things right so Followed the Germans league lead and VR might be watchable now. The game itself. I mean shoot. It's to mid-table teams battling. There were some interesting points. There were some fun points But at the end of Day Shit teams ship play. My biggest segue. Is that Franklin part. Is I think you made to huge mistakes? One in the goalkeeping in one in that he started bats. Upfront instead of Jerusalem I I don't think batch injurewd or that far off and maybe because I'm biased and I loved rude and now he's betrayed me and gone to the other London Club. I mean I bet you. I got a goal the other day and everything like that but he does not look good and then the whole the whole kappa. Thing like I think Kep is way better but obviously there's just like a tiffy going on between him and Frank Lampard so. I don't know what's going on there. I've heard rumors that Franklin move off on but because they paid a ridiculous amount of money for kappa. They the the board doesn't want to get rid of him so I think they're in all sorts of like there. I think frankly thought he was going to you know. We had a nice run a forum beginning of the season. I think he's one one out of the past six games or something like that Chelsea's gun is going to kind of a Rut right now and they're just not scoring goals. And I think that's the biggest thing that they need a striker. A true striker. Yeah man I mean I. I mean get a response in at the goalkeeper dilemma. Here I I don't think he made a mistake there. I think that both of the goals slab heads and marcial goals. They're gonNA keep her in the world that are saving those two headers. Those are bullet header to the corner. Kep As as pollux whatever. The fuck is last name is kept it is just as good as Willett. Caviar people just think he's good because he's the most expensive Kieran I Chelsea fans watches highlights every single one of his saves is him just diving spectacularly at the balls nears to him if you put that ball three away from him. The man has no chance of getting it. He's a small short Really just temperamental keeper like do you remember last year when he refused to come off. This kid's a joke. Kappa is an absolute joke of a keeper play. Willie can you do for a loss so kept before laws? Who the fuck cares. Go Buy another keeper your Chelsea you have that Russian oil money coming in you got that. Og Financial Fair play violations coming in baby. Oh Hallo sadie girl. Do you WanNa talk soccer. You WanNa say Kemp is dog shit because you like to Shit Martin. I know your dogs in the room right now. So I'm not going to use harsh words but what I'm going to say. Is I think that you know I think. Chelsea is got a lot of youngsters that are like really promising but I just weird to see a Chelsea side right now because it was all fun games at first Bonaly. You're not getting results so I don't think we're having fun anymore. Eighty not have does sing. Chelsea's not having fun anymore. I think you know Frank. Lampard is going to have a lot of work to do in the summer. I mean when Tammy was scoring when Mason Mount was performing to the top of visibility when Kovic Georgina were all doing well when For Corey Tamari was just brilliant in the it was awesome. It was awesome to see and I think Me and you over hype Frank. We over hyped Chelsea back in November back in October. And so you know it's coming back to bite us and they asked low bit. Chelsea fans thought they were on the up and up. But I mean you can't look at this Chelsea squad and be like yeah they can compete for the title now. They're in the same process of rebuilding. They just went through a really great and I agree. There ain't no true goal score on that team. There's no center Ford on that team granted. There's really not any wingers on that team. I mean Zayat is coming in from I. Xe Pulisic's hurt William and Pedro are pretty overrated. Pretty done so. Yeah I mean shoot for whatever reason William is wanted by Barcelona and I think that that might be the biggest Caracas. Shit that I've ever heard in my life. William is an average player ninety percent of the time ten percent of the time he's world-class I'll give him that. So I mean you just got to say what it is. Both these teams Manchester United under all GonNa Soldier Chelsea on a frank lamps are rebuilding. They are mid level teams at the moment their tactics. Aren't that interesting their players. Aren't that cohesive or that great so we saw the game we saw the game that you know is a mid table team. There was a whole bunch of yellow cards. There wasn't a lot of tactical creativity. There was a whole lot of luck and there was a whole lot of referee mistakes. It was it was not a great game but I am going to shout Manchester United out real quick and say that's three ws over Frankie lampy this year alone so we got your number boys. Coal is whenever you want because we're going to beat you again and again and again You know you always gotta look at you. Know the silver lining of the season. And that's good. I'll bet that's pretty good. We can beat Chelsea. You can be Chelsea which have been known to be good What's that in the past? They have in the past. They were a great team. Martin Holy Shit so so so was my team. Great Transition Arsenal one. This weekend For the first time this year which is exciting. You know we're still the only I think it's US Liverpool and PS G. Who were the only undefeated teams actually champions like if Champions League counts then daily Arsenal and Liverpool Liberal Law city ourselves? The only undefeated team lifts in all competitions now Martin in all of Europe. So you'll have to brag. That's what that stat means. You're the best team in all of Europe undefeated in a year and a twenty twenty twenty twenty currently the best team. No it was just fun. It was a very fun. Game Against Newcastle We played really really well. Lots of passes. It felt like a very man city side and you can see influence That pep has had on Arteta It was just all I mean. Ozo- scored Avas score There's what did you know. Do Things This is the first time. Pepe and Allah have all scored in a single game So that that's progress right there and to this is the last. This is the first time otas scored. Since April nineteenth two thousand nineteen has any been. Anybody been talking about that. Osas back question-mark Arsenal back. Question Mark Point no well no fuck emory God. He really just hated. Ozo- it's just so cool to see him like flourishing again. I mean it's probably it's just probably on your shit. No just let me have this man. We'RE GONNA go lose the next five games but you know bright spot is we have a lot of really good Youngsters Sokha was unbelievable that the MEG to the pepe goal was so sick Pepe was unbelievable. This game on a cat I mean everyone played really really well. Even when you have Moussavi endeavoured Louise or Louise I keep. I was in Gwen doozy he. He cut his hair. So it confused me but what I'm trying to say is it was cool. A clean sheet was cool. There's a lot of cool things about this game. And it was just fun to see arsenal playing very arsenal. Like for the first time and if it was a nice fresh of breath air. I'm you know I'm not optimistic. But I'm I'm having fun. I'm having fun again. It's been awhile since had fun. Martin have that fun. Cav ENJOY THAT. Shit undefeated twenty twenty. Go for that. Gopher the rest of the League undefeated just a whole bunch of draws in some winstone in there. That's how the invincibles did it anyway I I just WanNa that's true people.

Atlanta filling Michael Bradley plays for a team. Yeah Dude I don't know. Dc united with these united just for kicks. Okay next question. P. Five says now is talking to MLS more exciting battle in the EPL right now. The top five finish with five teams or allegation with sixteen. I think top-five finish now. This Man City News Martin. Relegations always exciting but now that we can possibly get. Sheffield United in Champions League football. Are you joking joking? I think that I lose my mind. I mean relegations always going to be exciting but I feel like having like the fifth spot now an option. I think that's really cool. I'm going to go on that negative side of life. I love that relegation battle year after year and it just makes me happy that there are literally sixteen within. I think like four points of each other. An an even like a tenth place team is only seven points above the relegation zone. Arsenal. But it's fine. Stock permitted sucks man this year. So I mean relegation. Battle can turn into a top-five battle by the by. May like who knows maybe twentieth to fifth place will be separated by ten points and would just be an all out battle between top five and relegation-zone. I'm about to sucks the least Next question comes from be the next question comes from be underscore. Schreiner twenty two. He said if your team could sign a player from the current I x squad. Who would you want? Aren't they all gone? Daily blend baby. Bring back daily. Glenn I love that man. Oh He's never sold him. He's doing really really well. He's kind of had a resurgence. Kind of like your boy over at Roma Chris. Mullin can fuck off and stay fuck off and join you a idiot. Who's the guy who left and went to Southampton and went there? Oh what's his name. Oh Man Crab on crap steak. I know exactly who you're talking about. It that guy. Yeah that's a good pick like. Oh yeah they're pretty much all gone now and I was looking who hold on. I'm going to skip back real quick to our post here so I asked paid. Eleven million for each got forty. Four million paid four million for Davidson Sanchez. Got Forty million pay. Two point eight million for MILIC got thirty five million paid one million Frankie Dejong guy seventy five million and paid nothing for Matthew. Isn't it the day I? How do you pronounce? I've always rehab for nausea delete delete and sold for seventy five million anyway. That was just great business. I just wanted to know I I love when I see. Great business like that Oh on look have kept kept what low adage which is his net. Yes deuce on. I'll take him. That's the guy I want. All right next question comes from Sam June up point two one seven he says for Martin. What's your reaction to the VR and the Chelsea match? Sorry this is already been discussed No totally fine Obviously Martin is like and I'm I'm this year in the Premier League. I'm VR. He hater again. I've always said that I want the game to be as accurate as possible. But they're not fucking doing it. I don't understand what what the hell is going on in England right now but it's not good. I mean as I said before said again J. or shit just because it helped me doesn't change my opinion of it. It's Shit it was pretty wrong. It's inconsistent that that von action could be red-carded could be a Just no card because there's no consistency and calls and there's really no accuracy in these calls so Shit Pretty Shit continues to be shit. That's my that's my reaction to the VR and Manchester United chose again Next question comes from Silly Daddy. Sixty nine nice He says Who's winning the Champions League? Oh well we had some matches on today which We'll talk about on Thursday. We deliver boy. I let it go and PSE Dorman Martin I didn't mention this during the whole man. City thing do you think mandate he's GonNa use this as motivation? If they're like fuck it like if we can't win it the next two years we might as well go all in just fuck the league and just you know try and win it this year and I sure but they're not going to win the league. They're they're not GONNA win the Champions League they have an African curse. I mean I really don't send them beating Real Madrid for starters I think really I have all of it. Yeah I think they have all the talent in the world but Manchester City is serial chokers in the Champions League number one Zonza Dane or serial winners in the Champions League. Number two Zonza Dane has truly rebuilt this Real Madrid squad So they're they ain't nothing take lightly so I don't think that they are going to be men or a Real Madrid and I certainly don't think that they're going to win the Champions League they might try and throw everything added but you know Shit Not GonNa Happen Guys. Sorry Yay gun to my head right now. I'd still say I would say Liverpool but obviously they lost Athletico so and they're just kind of focused on like doing one of the greatest premier league seasons ever right now Old Legendary teams did that show old legendary teams. Try to win as much as possible. Pretty Weak Shit. Jurgen KLOPP I gun to my head. Kev. In terms of WHO's going to win I say Byron Man. Yeah I was actually going to say. No one's really talking about them and I chose the wolves quiet quiet giants over there in Germany Next question comes from Abayev. Great Three one seven he just says Chelsea VR. Call again. I think Harry Maguire should have been sent off. They got it wrong. Human means son. Did something very similar? Got A three game ban in a Red Card Harry. Maguire tried to come back with his comments. Like oh I thought he was falling on me. It's like no you lashed out like you. It does a great excuse but you know I I think me martyring agreement they got it wrong but hey play on whatever keep going. This is why you don't have a or if the roughness did he missed it. I mean for God's Sakes Aaron Eric Cantona Karate kick to fan interface. Imagine a Vr was there and said. Yeah that's okay Yeah VR Shit continues to shit and we'll always be shit so there. You go all right next question. John Seaman Ninety two says are you guys excited for Man City and moved the League to absolutely brother I will say I will say when it all broke out. I was a little too giddy. I was a little too happy like I was like screaming like I shouldn't be dancing on these people's graves. I shouldn't say all of them. You can no. This isn't gonNA affect a lot of people. That's that's the best part about it like we can all make a whole lot of fun of them. We can all make fun of this club. Because at the end of the day noggin affect a lot of fans. People are going to survive. There just weren't I don't know I do. All Man City fans will just turn into Liverpool. Fans they already have done. I don't know we got a lot of Man City fans. Listen to the show man and God damn it The what's it called on facebook. I posted like five Man City memes in a row to finally someone commented it was like. Hey you guys losing guys running out of content. I'm like well no but I'm just saying like it's the biggest story in the world and I'm a little too excited about it Next QUESTION COMES FROM JOSH. Ivan off he says please for Christ's sake addressed VR shit. Show me everyone wants VR. Yo Still Shit we also they. They fucked up some really bad causing that game. It's just we gotta move on guys we gotta move on. It was bad And you know I. It's just hopefully fix next year. Next question COMFORTABE car. He says what do you think of the situation? That's going on with the owners at West Ham. Ooh Yeah West. Ham is in quite the pickle right now. They are not doing well Especially in terms of ownership Their play the players aren't to be happy overall West. Am seems to be the doomed team of the year. So I don't know too much going on ownership I just heard from like literally describing twitter and all the West Ham fans that I follow like going off on it so I only know like secondhand but I do you know anything about this Martin. Yeah I mean if if you think about it it's it's like a new castle a couple of years ago and Shirley today the same reason that Rafa Benitez left. I mean Mike Ashley horrible owner the owner of West Ham is apparently pretty shite owner to and you know he's not supporting club in in public is not supporting the Club in terms of the acquisitions of players that they want to need. And you know that type of negativity just you know erodes that fan support and so once again once you have. The owners turned their back on that club. And we saw it in extremes like Mike Ashley at Newcastle. We kinda see CNN. Manchester United Tennessee it in Arsenal if the owners turned their back on the club owners betray that club. I mean there's just unrest in the fans there's unrest in the dressing room ended just that toxic environment that causes teams to lose confidence again and again and again. I mean that's the reason Newcastle dropped two years ago. Luckily they had a good enough manager under Rafa. Benitez to stick with that squad pulled him back up from the championship. Now Devon Moya's he ain't no Rafa Benitez he's a Goddamn severe Fucking David Moya's So I I really you know I feel bad for West Ham but like I've said before no I want to see a new team. Go Down and West Ham. Is that new team so You know sucks to suck owners suck you know that's why you don't hire rich assholes to be the owners of your clubs higher loyal fans. I think I genuinely think have that fans should be the owners of these clubs like no no they would know they the I think you need. Some rich guy's rich mark is Martin. I don't think I think what are you guys doing for these clubs either sometimes fairplay laws or ruining clubs hashtag lasers has tagged with. There's a reason for our owners richer owners and some people are fans. I'm just saying there's just sometimes be more are in the business and they are because of what I I give. You're saying maybe more owners have more fan mentality kind of like the Liverpool ownership but the Gilette family owning on Liverpool. The family that went bankrupt because they fucking suck so much in the NASCAR world and the Liverpool in world where they were literally pooling money from the Liverpool Squad circuit two thousand nine two thousand twelve. I think it was and they literally went bankrupt. Try to sell Liverpool because they just were so fucking broken such shit owners so owners can make or break a club in once again owners are fucking over this story club. West Ham flowing bubbles no more. You aren't yeah they're popped anyway next question Sweeney hut junior says. What's the most pointless thing I could write a blog about? Oh well this is our esteemed writer for the lads podcast Dot Com rob writes weekly blogs for our website. He wrote one today about World Soccer Culture Fuck versus American sports. It was something very good. I can't remember the title right now even though I posted it and read it earlier. I'm literally just trying to get through all these questions as fast as possible but check rob. He's a great writer. He appears on our show some time he's been a guest on this show and he's amazing down in southern California so Charlotte Rob. What's the most pointless you could write a blog about Arsenal football club? Being back pointless Martin anything. Mls RIGHT ABOUT MLS pointless Last question comes from raw football. Talk there another soccer podcast. Who are very good. They say we'll Liverpool win the Champions League again this year It's hard to go back to back. It's not it's rarely been done I mean. Don is a fucking anomaly winning at three times in a row so I I mean I think you know when it goes back to Enfield against I think it just so hard to them at Anfield that like even though Athletico one today spoiler but I have full confidence that Liverpool will make it through the lake so or through the two lakes. I'm kind of fifty fifty They've really faced to truly competitive teams. This year I lost both times. Napoli an athletic Madrid So I think it's GonNa be a really interesting tie second-leg Can they beat the likes of Byron? Can they beat the likes of Ram android candidate? Beat the likes of events Can they beat the likes of Dortmund? Ps Gee I don't know man I don't know I think I think that it's a fifty. Fifty shot renown cavs said it best going back to back. That's fucking hard and You know the good thing is they've won the league so they don't really have to focus on the league anymore and you're KLOPP. Obviously you know chooses went to focus his true efforts on something so you know who knows man the fuck knows. I HOPE NOT I. You know I don't you know someone who's not in Champions League football for a while. I don't really have a say so I'm GonNa go to our last question which are discord channel. Our channel is our chat room where people can hang out and talk about soccer movies video. Which is a chat room for people who enjoy the show? Everyone gets along. It's a great time. It's from x x x big baller sixty nine xxx. He says did slab head deserve a red card And those other two. Chelsea goals got ruled out X. Alexa what do you make of it? this is like our tenth question. I'm sorry guys. Vr fucked up. They were wrong. I think. The other two Rulings on the field. I mean the guy had half his foot off side and I. I don't know I think it was both the other ones. Were more fifty fifty calls. I definitely think the Harry. Maguire call was complete bullshit switching tunes on the fourth time of asking here. No he didn't deserve a red card. I thought kicking. The people in the balls was allowed in soccer. Who the fuck knows on the rule book? I don't know I never rented it. There's no rule saying you can't kick balls right riot. I bought the lie. Soccer's kickoff if I've never read it. It's allowed so okay guys that's That's our show. Thanks for hanging out may follow us on. All our social media instagram twitter. And if you WANNA join.

Two on Tri: Sanchez Flores Right for Mexico?

"Yeah. Some of the needle welcomed. Latest addition of two on three podcast, Gomez fashion. Ourself with you. It is November nine two thousand eighteen sweeps down have this. Our latest episode of the show we are now just about three months while pass three months actually, ten days past three months since one Carlos audio decided to step down as Mexico's national team manager hurt we still do not know who his follow predecessor. Yeah. We'll be you know, what's funny about this. You that you love God muscle Saudi so much you that you publicly apologized on international airwaves, which are no book that you also happen to have right now is one God also Saudi may have may get an international coaching job leave that coaching job and get another one before. Yes. Replaces them. It is wild. I feel soda got enough run on this show, but he did leave at the end of July July twenty seven I think is the exact date. So here we are almost one hundred days later man, and we still don't have a manager. There's some recent developments with Martina, and then some names that have popped up from your get to that. In a second are these hundred days wasted time for you. Because we talk about it not too often that tangible we talk about on the US side. It's been way more one hundred days a year. Correct. And you have or the federation do United States for wasting time. Do this is to me there's some nuance differences here by not hammer the Mexican federation you do on other. I'm just saying in this case, do you hear them in the same way for wasting time? You feel like we're not in essence not much for wasting time. But the manner of which they run things because these hundred days we've been told there have been over thirty interviews who are the interviews with. We've also been told my is not a candidate. What don't? Do you like about the thirty interviews that would suggest that they're going ahead by looking at a really diverse wide candidate Pawar who is candidate pool. Well, I mean, we've talked about before about and just having given us one name. They've had an interview with all we know is is blackballed. He's not an equation. Megan Loretta is not in question because he's been told us, but all of a sudden there's this shout that if Megan and grew many got win. Here's that carrot in front of you there, it is you may have a shot at the Mexican national team to Verity who wants to be chased the federation who didn't want to chase him. Now they want to chase him. It's too late. They practically begged him to take over as interim drink again gun. It put came in and vote gun executives. Because during this time there's been all these different variables where it makes. You seem like there is something there and then trails off there's nothing. So makes you wonder Louisa one hundred days what actually is going on. Who actually is running things is it was coming up with these list. We otherwise. For discount. Do we close? It. All these different variables coming about of who actually is pulling the strings, and why this is happening other actual options are being courted. If Marino really is a candidate for Mexico, and they really wanted when you've got Argentina Colombia in the mix. Well, you're never gonna get dot before MLS Cup or the end of Atlanta United States. That's the reality. Right. That's still up in the air that could end on Sunday, but hold on. What I'm trying to get at is. They think they have him. And all of a sudden, he's got other suitors. Well, and so I think. I think for me. That's it's hard for me to say that that the wasted time. I mean, three months is feels like a long time. But when you're when you're talking about the situation as it was all Saudi was planning, a let's be honest about that bringing him back was planning. They offered him the job. Right. So so when plant a fails, and you now have to open up to to plan B taking three months to a total search. That's fine. I think is. Reasonable. If you look at the cow, I feel gross. If you look at the call ups, there's a little rhyme or reason if that's really the way if what you're looking at shouldn't be calling the players go. If you're looking at these players, and what they offer for the future. Who do you want to be calling the players with an interim manager who would you have? It'd be honestly federate honestly, right now, I which I prefer if it was because he's got a better grasp sporting decisions than those guys over over those. Absolutely, absolutely. I don't know about that just because when you got into the youth level the other ones out of the game for so long. He was Indiana plan you yoursel saga. The other one just got the job to the twenty-seven years uninterrupted Mexican soccer. If anybody knows that landscape it is him. So there are a few in you're going to get to the list game. When you get to list, I'm going to tell you if you mainstays for Duca, what worries me aren't the mainstays is the players that. We haven't seen in these games. Don't matter. One hundred days doesn't matter if these three months don't matter we just playing everybody. Exactly anybody who's. You know, a work in heart being has a future with Mexican national team. It's interesting the list of players who've been called up for the next two games in Argentina has come out get to that in a little bit while stock about not going those guys aren't here. Many of them Europeans many of them. Big names. Some some controversy brewing there with some recent declarations from but as far as the searching coat as a coaching search goes. When you hear about it was okay? It's a done deal to be announced December eight and then the reports started coming in a dot does getting cold feet be Argentina has now ESPN Argentina our colleagues down. There have reported that the Argentine federation has been in constant contact with dot the Martino, maybe that's a part of the cold feet that he's feeling and then what happened was and Kika sumptious. Florida's is the most recent name didn't even mention Columbia for by the way. Yeah. Colombian United States and other open job. But obviously, we note that there hasn't been called for that, speak English. I speak English. Well enough when we know just interview on English speaking right to your face. There you go have this one. Oh, I don't speak English. Okay. There you go USF another story for another day. So once Totta has been knocked off this pedestal. We agree right. It was thought does job. And now it's like, well, maybe he's not sure there's two things that jumped out to me about that one. I wonder how much did the overwhelmingly negative reaction to his reported announcement right in very initial reports did that get back to him that way on him. We talked about it on the last episode of this show kind of the overwhelmingly negative on football on. And then beyond that something that we've kind of touched on previous episodes of this show is boy every time somebody says, no or gets cold feet just continue to come back to this. This job attractive? Not all that attract do because you hear all the reasons whether oh, well, I prefer this rapper for that. And we'll get into gets just Laura's and data is another name that has popped up since I got the cold feet. But everybody has a reason why that blows my mind and Julian limp, how out of touch is the federation where right after he fails with Madrid and granted Madrid if you ridge out, maybe it's the only time you get out of touch and also to how desperate are you? What you gotta go for that name recognition. Now. This is what gets me, and I'll answer your your Martino is the the second that they go after Kika Sanchez Florida's the second that happens. This comes up in my mind is that does not assure as they thought planning CD and skis on just rode his guy who has really been involved in a while who's very down her. He hasn't worked since April. Yeah, he's very down the depth chart. Everybody's list. What exactly are you going for who? Are you looking for? Because if you talked a lot of people. Yeah, he was he was let go out just kind of grasping for straws. And where's me about grasping hand is not the public reaction because we saw one Mexico job and the amount of negative attention behind. It was overwhelming just as much or maybe less than Martina. What what really worries me is who's calling the shots who's really pulling the strings here because John the lease Louisa, and he really thinks he has a shot of getting Julian limp deg or really thinks he has a shot of getting who's the biggest player guy in the market right now. Let's say if you could have butchered, Dino or these Bs exactly what he said. No. And that's how we got the. But then you gotta go. You gotta make public. This is why I want. So then the crowds behind you. If they make public and you don't get them. Listen man, we swung the fan. We swung. You went for it. But we didn't get it. And how you're going for Florida's. So you're making everybody really think. Wow. How incompetence federation how little interest is this job having the outside soccer world outside of Mexico almost as soon as the ESPN Argentina reports hit saying that Argentina was now interested in thought Don that maybe there were other suitors potential. You mentioned Columbia for his services that he was getting cold feet. The first name we heard was not Kika Sanchez. That's way. More recently. The first name we heard of kind of the plan. Let's say let's call it. See let's say soda was. A dot that was I don't think it's that linear. But let's say plan C was actually looked at daig and the response from. No. But was not reportedly was not no, I'm super interested in talk to me more. You know, what I'm going to take a break. I need a break, and you can understand it's been a rough year for taking that said though, then they talked to just Florida's and the early reports yesterday in one of our colleagues on one hundred almost on them. Now, it was it was a Geordie got from Spain. I'll get name here in seconds. The reporter who broke the news, right? And so he's like look there's supposedly going to have a meeting either today or tomorrow in London with you on that we saw maybe some other guys and. But such Motors says, look, I'm a club coach, my interest is the day to day work. That's what I want. It's like man every time they go to a person and they present the project. There's always a I need a break. I'm ready for rest. I prefer club thought. Maybe I have Argentina's. They're always not that attractive. You know, there's always something wrong with knives may never bride. Here's here's the issue with this. Is you look at the possible candidates could be out there in the outside outside of Latin amounts of Mexico. I should say people see this job as a step down. And the only reason they would wanna take this job. If you're a foreign coach is because you're going to go to a World Cup and money and money. They've promised to pay a lot more thought does been rumored what they'd offer to move to make the highest paid Mexican coach ever we're talking net versus gross. But that's all it is. It's the carrot dangling is the World Cup and in the money the money, but in the eyes of many around the. World. It's a step down. And it's a lose lose situation. Right. You're going into a situation with a ton of pressure ernal pressure. Right. But that's the pressure. You face every day. Unless you're Arnold society. Doesn't live in the country. No. But but but beyond that pressure. You also have the reality that Mexico's not a global power Mexico is not is not a team that has players in the club's the big Manchester City's PS jeez. The clogged classified him as the as Barscelona Madrid. You've actually have those next doesn't have that sees then th about another colleague of ours. We worked with the World Cup basically through his contacts at the federation Knicks tag rumors almost straight away. Yeah. I think I think that the Florida's a guy who I think is a little bit more really wanna say interesting because he's not that interesting, but it's a resume. We're diving into it is it's not the sexy pick by any means. I spoke to our colleague here at ESPN, Alex Monica who is Spanish August world soccer. And I was asking about the type of coach that geek Assange is from Barcelona. Yes. So Espanyol is is right. Yes. He knows it. Well, and he was saying that he's one of these. Coaches that prioritizes from the back. I there defensively sound he's not confrontational. So to speak. He's not a buck him with the press. But he is a guy who speaks his mind, and he likes things to be fair. And just many times they are not when it comes to the Mexican press. He says the mecca federation or the federation says he will. It'd be known if he sees injustice around him, then he's not going to get the job. If he does break out your popcorn got your proper because he's been known to have those moments. I let back Obama's but not as controversial. He last managed on y'all to the end the last season, basically, April before that he was at watt furred Benfica's bit Benfica he won Europa league without that Madrid him and then during this kind of the jewel of his resume, but his last three stops head off it wad furred Espanol. He's basically one of now those aren't big teams, but he's basically one third of his games winning percentage. Those three stops thirty three thirty five rain granted the pool he's swimming in a lot deeper over there. And then would be so aside from. Geeky Sanchez again got who should notice has no international experience. I mean, you look at his resumes. Got a lot of good clubs there. He's got no international experience. Does that resume? Do you like that resume or or does it have holes in it for you has lots of holes? Yeah. He's never managed the national team. He's never been parked in. What is the Latin American press? He has a certain. Way of working and some of those methods won't be well received here, not just with the press. But with the federation, you know, how it is in Mexican soccer. You can't just call you want. There has to be a reason behind it. But has to be on board. The federation takes very seriously. There are a lot of holes. If you ask me you need a coach as well season. Now funk wasn't that? He was almost Kika Sanchez, Florida if you think about and he had that same exact resume coaching club. He had maybe a brief stint in Mexican soccer with that. But he coached in Latin American soccer. And that's what he knew he was a club soccer coach, and they gave an opportunity was to be national team coach. And there were win percentage was among the highest in its history. I know didn't get to that final fifth game win percentage of the national team level is a lot of games that don't mean any correct. So I think it's worth pointing out that the other thing about the resume is like it's you compared it to Saudi Saudi was club. But it was Latin American club. It was not European club outside of. A few years at Manchester City visible trainers trainer. This club resume to me people at this point, if Deka son just Florida's who the federation has is going to settle on. Let's hypothetically are we overvaluing and for those who can't see this putting in Europe like the value of Europe. I mean, I get it. It's all your, but it's cutoff it what for Espanyol. Those are the last three stops should a guy who's been at those clubs really be a leading candidate for the Mexican national team. Why would he have really quickly? You feel me? I mean like, I get it. It's europe. But at Mexico world's level World Cups, just at least is mid table. And the bottom of that midtable. It's on the other side of that mid table. When you talk about results, you can say whatever you want. They've got him to straight seven straight second next round, knockout games, or whatever. But the bottom half of that midtable half the teams make it to the second round from there. Who goes on? They don't go on. So that's what they are. That's their bar. So they're BAFTA if that yeah. I don't know because I don't think it's just World Cups. Right. There's other tournaments. They're they're they're not will on their better. What in the second division? Okay. I just think sometimes we look at these like European resumes is different because remedied in Spain. But like Kika SunTrust voters to me is a very hidden do for you. He's a middling European man. Here's a problem. He's one of these games at teams that are not like what names on the market for you right now. And I'll tell you why they won't take the Mexican. No. I know I again, it comes back to the gala. This is not really attractive job for anybody outside of Mexico. I don't know what's going to happen with Mexican nationals. If it's not that much. He's the only named me right now that makes me getting getting knows that ain't gonna have it. And they don't want it. I think that that has a good grasp of of this landscape already. He's coaching in Atlanta. They got the same players league scout they go for he's he was already keeping his eye on what was Congo champions for this come up coming seasons. So he's got a good grasp what Mexican soccer is about. And you live in Atlanta in that population with league, it's been the most popular league in the United States bound to watch some games. Sure. And if he doesn't he can hire staff and within six months, they can be caught up to speed all this stuff is reality is all want more of the same. You want different idea? That's what I've been preaching from jump. That's why even when I take a shot at the resume of Kika sumptious slowed as well. It's a different guy. It's guy who isn't from Mexican. It doesn't give you the sense or the sensation. Oh my gosh. Handling j settling vibe with this. But oftentimes when that just because you feel when a guy's hired like you're settling doesn't mean that back. I can't do what good job, right? I think we have to keep that stuff in mind. So then we get to well what's next for the actual team. We got the names we've got the list who's calling this group is at somebody thinking about who the next coach is going to be real quick on that front, then he stick Lhasa whose name who we've touched on here. And they're both in this podcast and on Maxon hurt. He's now rumored to potentially be on his way out could be now if you throw that into this mess of a situation where the national team has gone from a to a decent plan b if your plan B two now. Oh god. We don't have. Now, we're like planned see grasping at straws. And now one of the guys in theory in charge of that process. Then he's about to step out. Oh my God. This to me this could expect them out out. And I don't even know that then he's says that critical to the search. I don't know there's not gun through or Toronto, we're running it. But the idea of one of the three names that we know who has been named. I believe we saw when he names guys stepping out of that at this moment is a real concern for me. I wonder if you felt the same when you saw that do from that would be the term. He's very sought after for not only within league max. Now, the rumors MLS majorly Aleksey. Yeah. That'd be huge huge play by the galaxy. This is a man who knows it landscape. Very well. He's a very good recruiter sees talent differently and very instrumental to what is FM F, and what they are trying to build for the future. So you're right. It would be a big disappointment for all involved. Let's get to the list. Then before we go name names. Just ask you saw the group as you saw it come in. Was there anything about the team overall that jumped out to you? Yeah. The twelve players who constantly have been called in by the members making this list. I won't assume it's not, but they're having those rumors. Dotto or the close AO can't do to be. Is there any chances a group effort? I mean, like is it crazy for me to suggest that that there's multiple guys would be. But if that's the case that wouldn't be the word. I'd be worried. I'd be worried let's go with twelve players who often called in Yala. It's another buddies a guy though chocolate or Regis, San willow at the aga-. What about other Portugal's man, Deoras goodie even attic, Shuki, Lozano and human those twelve having constantly called in for what have been the call by Duke, affinity, or under these tenure? So that leads me to be worried just a bit. If what you're looking for is the future. If what you're looking for some guys on that list aren't the future. Forget about the guys who are in this twelve hundred the future. But the names who didn't make it this go around or than last here goes goes campaign for boy, he's saying you boy, but he is one of them. I know what you would sing is one of them. But then you also have Lexi's Vega. He's the one that's getting the most talked about right now as a snub Alexa, Vega. Okay. You have. Nobody swaying. You right there really send you who. Plays into the Portuguese league and is planning for fitness and one of the best defensive teams in the league. He's a mainstay on that club. He's been one coach buy Duke, affinity, okay? And two he went out on a free transfer to the Portuguese league Mexican clubs like it. When you go out on a free being made an example of don't knows him because he played for them. No. Are you saying between Duca can too? There's the close it. And what is though too? Seniors that on your list. Twenty four years old. I believe meanwhile, anybody else who takes a trip to Europe gets a call and Gulu is playing as a left played as a centre back, and he's left back in very badly. At that at the doesn't even play for Santos right now. It's just there where you always wins. Yes. If Lampe lead over Alexis Vaga is really thing right now, what are you doing to build for this future? There are a lot of things that don't make sense of the employees. What we'll say is a red flag that he's not there. Yeah. I mean, when you think about the way in which you know, we'll get into this a little beyond the moon. The captain of the u seventeen team that brought you a world championship on your home soil. But if you think about an and we've seen this actually, it's a different situation, but maybe a little bit not all that different from the situation when when players are faced up against them anomaly that is the league and the way that the buckle that got affects the lack of free agency. They're free. Agency. And you've talked about this before your free agency is abroad. The only your only way out is to go abroad. So a guy who was an asset of this and said, I'm glad to let this expire. You get nothing. I go abroad get paid more. I don't know that he's getting pay more on the economics of it. But that's a pay cut for the upper to play in that league gladly did it and killing. Yeah. So I think I think there's some some interesting potential there for controversy happens. All the time we've seen it. We with Don, you're the brother may he rest in peace of mind. But I will when he comes back and he wants to go play. They have to negotiate with cheese. Even though he was on a free. We see this all the time when it happens. If you betray the system the system does which is which is very very amusing. To me at this point in time didn't Moi's Munoz as head of the player in Seattle in a press. Release representing the players association come out almost arm-in-arm with the federation officials say we've radically ios was last season week thirteen and now and now all these things are going on. What is going on? Yeah. Tell it to officer. Right. We'll get into that. Well, get into that a little bit later on. So one of the names that you mentioned that just jumps out to me Julio. What am I missing? Like why why is he getting called in the only thing? I can think of is Chiba is a team that has pulled a lot of pool carries a lot of weights. So this roster is basically like, oh, nobody saying ration-, listen to what I'm gonna listen L police because cheetahs once initially I'm going to say, and you tell me what you think there are two names on this list that make me feel the Mexican federation and the Mexican national team are helping these two players move. One of the land polio. She was wants to sell them. What's the best way to sell them? Shoko them showcasing Monaco five yon mile. I guess the only one case because everybody thinks he's injured. How can we show the world? He's not interested. We can move him. So he can be sold to a better club or a bigger club or any club. Showcase them. Yeah. It's. I don't know if I be unto me is is a higher caliber player than bullied, it's fine. There was a club in Turkey to said he he physically wasn't able to perform that he's interested. What's the best way to help this out right now play get them on? But back the police. I mean, this this is to me a guy who's just not at the level anymore. How many more chances are you gonna give this guy when we talk about on Alexa, Vega who's twenty years old plan for Luca? Look he's twenty this is his fourth season. I mean, not hasn't burst onto the breakthrough last season. He missed all of it because of a tornado. But I'm saying like he's been around a while you've known about this kid for a while here. He is twenty years old. Now, we scoring as you say we're in this. There's no rhyme or reason to this. Let's get guys look injuring a drought. What allowed is I've seen it enough. I don't know what I know what as through nine. He isn't a finisher. Well, so why not get finisher? Well, let me try to find. Because because if you want somebody who hinted out who generates that football that action. That's why that. Why might go Janas there? That's why potentially you could Giovanni or goes mon- or. You know, who else would you think of in that position? Non this from a white position. Sure. But this is what I'm saying. So we got go to list of the Gallos. There are some Europeans here guys. Remember last time, we talked about this. There was almost a total absence of European-based players here. We've got an older human is. That's not really, right. That's not a surprise memo. Joa is backed me Eunice back one of the names that I think we thought was kind of at the around as one of the four at the center of the beef between federation or saw and kind of Mexican national senior team players. So those two guys going back to me says, oh, well, maybe maybe some of that beef is fixed. But there are other names that aren't there on this one? Now, he's coming off an injury. You can understand why he'd want to stick around bet think he played yesterday against who has it in Europa league Milan. One of those teams. Sure, they beat Milan. Yeah. Producer Tim sorry. Our producer laws, but I think he got into this up. So he's getting back to health. You can kind of write that one off Cheech anything you could almost say the same about until I yes, right? Has had this virus? Now back at West Ham's goals trying to maintain his spot. But then we get this interview from Sogeti with. A former teammate of yours. Mark gross. Yeah. And he basically says I've always thought about stepping away from the team in every phase phase of my of my career, which I think my God it's been in the back of his head either. How delicate is or how horrible must it be to play for the national team that this guy's always thought about stepping away. That's when I I saw that. I thought both those things. Yeah. In that way. And then he goes on to say, even now I'm currently thinking almost not threatening threatening wrong word they used it in on the graphics on Saturday had less threat posturing for sure teasing almost like teasing like he might hinting like he might maybe walkaway. What's it gonna be thirty four at the next World Cup? If you will be twenty nine I believe. Yeah. But remember to December world thirty four. I think he's gonna be thirty four. Thirty four he'll be thirty four. So here's this guy. Who's who's a legend the all time leading goal score for sure. Yeah. And he seems to be saying. Kind of good that doesn't bother you. So two things that I immediately thought of when I didn't see his name on the list. Okay. Besides this quote to both those things the first is here's a player who's playing not regulate for West Ham. Right. And when you're at that stage of your career, and you think you've done it all with the national team, Mike how much better can it get for him on the Nash team level? Well, he realistically play another World Cup. Maybe maybe not well he'd be at his highest level. No, no, he won't. So every time you go to a national team game. You're missing out on the opportunity for fight to fight for a spot in your day to day job and West Ham. He's not playing he's not the man or not which is man. He's not the goal score. That's all he's ever been a goal score. He's not there. So say no to Mexican national team and actually trying to win a spot for me in a team that you haven't gonna opportunities because of illness or injury. What maybe is a smart thing to do. Now. When I hear this comment. You know, what this tells me, you don't appreciate me? You do not appreciate. Me and Siam the leading goalscorer of my national team. I have played in three world on let me flowers at the finish. I've scored in three different World Cups who doesn't appreciate him. Let me finish. I've scored in three different World Cups. I've played in Europe for teams like Man United basically for Madrid West Ham Leverkusen, I play in the Champions League final. I've I've won a Premier League. And you call me a throne. You don't value who I am other countries. They would revere me. He feels slighted. He doesn't see the benefit or the plus of wearing that jersey anymore in my mind. This is what he's telling me. You know, what if I walk away from it? It's it doesn't matter. What you think any more? I want to be happy, and I'm not happy sometimes with you. So it's doesn't either. This election anymore. No, I think it's I think it's more who needs each other more. I think study more than thirty six young. Yeah. I think this needs to more but not for on the field for marketing. I don't I don't think the federal day. If today there was a must-win game okay today. But I think the reality is there's not, and there's what the other thing is said it they need for the marketing when they complain the US is going to be like, wait a second. Where's my take on ios? Yeah. I don't want believe in you understand you fill in that stadium. And he understands this. This is why he was one of those four five flares center of this F B because they want to improve their working conditions. They want a respectable collective bargaining agreement like any other country like any of the players association, and they wanna cut because the Mexican federation and its long pants owners. They are stealing this money. You said that and I don't know if we've set it on this pod. But just very quickly. What you made as a as an international plan for the US. If it was a top ten country people rankings more Mexico or World Cup qualifier. Even if it was Cuba, all all due respect to Cuba, and you won. It was sixteen four sixteen thousand four hundred dollars. If you tied. It was eight six and if you lost it was four four, and what are the Mexican players get the last you heard win draw or lose? They get two thousand dollars two thousand dollars. They don't get they do an enormous amount of marketing commercialization of what be on the other side extra football. They don't get a dime on that. So basically what's happening here is for the longest time that what you got to play for the shirt has been there payment. Basically the federation said okay can't want eat though. No. We're giving are you playing what a great opportunity Jovi Morale's, even giving you two thousand and that what do you care, you're a millionaire millions by your what do you care? The abuse me the money in some way, the abuses of the federation are coming home to roost as these players get more and more and more power, and frankly, more and more money right now, I am not saying give these they're money hungry money, hungry players who only greedy and think for themselves. But if you were putting that work, and you saw what you were drawing in interest. And when you were receiving who who was receiving it, wouldn't you also be like hold on a second little just proportioned here is the only way for these veteran leaders to fight this to step away from the national team. Is there not a cleaner way to do this to get to a threatening retirement? You know, what the ironic thing is. Them fighting this the way, they have they're not gonna be the ones reaping the rewards, right? Yeah. At this point, these guys are gonna be around, you know, who's gonna run another where he's thirty nine. So you're so high on you know. At the I unglue all these players. They're going to be the ones reading the words as it should be. Do you think there's a chance, you know, we talk about? Boy, everybody send your being blackballed. Do you think there's a chance that the federation might say? All right. These guys wanna play this game. We're looking at the math here. I if I can pull up dried they had gone to pull up and say, the thirty four thirty three thirty to thirty five these aren't gonna be around to hell with them. They tried. They're trying they've tried. They've done it. But here's a difference. Why won't it work? Hold on. So far in the eyes of many. They think it's working. Here's a difference those games, excuse me. But they've been all outside the United States, right? Once they're in the United States. What some then you got on a second. You got stadium and you've got to build a stadium now marketing dollars because Banamex because all these other companies hold on a second. I pay June advance for my my youn-, my Reta, my Modano. You know, why I want mature they need to smile? I wanna see that hairdo. Right. This is what it is to business. Yeah. I think it's going to be very interesting to see how this plays out and not necessarily on like a who's right or? Wrong basis, but but almost on negotiation like back and forth battle who sticks to their guns. The most because at the end of the day like what's those ultimate play to kind of what's got lose. What's he got to his image? Angrily retiring from the national team is not as it angrily retiring in the eyes of many, or is it you think you think the Mexican public is going to is going to take well to a guy turning avatar. How that does he care? I don't know. I doesn't Vela practically announced he's retirement the Mexican national team ESPN he said, it's time for others. There are others who can fulfill this moment, I am not one of them. Right. But you go back to the early parts of cardinals Venice career when he turned on the national team the things they said about him in Mexico air, the I don't know who maybe. More than soccer didn't care. I don't know that she those Carlos. I don't know that under swatted others. Carlos all these guys to go out. Like me ask you the question. Besides the money factor. Why all these foreign based Mexican national players choose to go to MLS before the Yankees, besides the money quality of life. They're not harassed by the media. There you go. All right, cool. The only other thing that I think is worth bringing up here because I know we got to wrap this thing up unless you got something else jeering else. Don't you? We're gonna talk about the news and you use the big news. If you've been following along on ESPN, the this you've certainly heard this or view, if you follow our friend, Tom Marshall, I think he's been tweeting some articles about it as well. A couple days ago. Members of cough essay, which is the that. The competency economic. I don't need to really translate that for you bet din. Competition Economica economic competition. Rayed? It is too strong of a word, but showed up both at gruza soon and go up at the headquarters of Mexicans it. Really? That's wrong word exactly what they did over the facilities. Okay. I didn't know that. It was so much of a raid. But if you want to call it or made that's fine right raid. So they go to to the base clubs in Mexico in Mexico City, and they're supposedly there to inquire about monopolistic tactics, and this is based off of kind of irregular activity during recent transfer window. So let's just look at the words here and see we can piece some things together. This is by the way, we don't know exactly what they're investigating. No. Let's speculate. What I like to do. Economic competition. K. Where is economic in what atmosphere is economic competition? Most compromise in a monopoly. What is one of the most obvious symptoms of a monopoly collusion? Okay. What is the thing that we have always talked about it's open collusion in Mexican soccer. That would be the gentleman's back back though that got a. Yeah does. And so it would seem to be mentioned early in the show, the the the poor decision all this robbing rotting from the player sucking off more than they may be earned the federation from from from this this great pool of money not giving enough to the players to keep them happy. That's come home to roost now is a players become more powerful. But I thought this was already radical thought week thirteen last season. When y'all said we've done it. We are not going to strike we've eliminated gentlemen's back where it was playing at the time was he playing where? Was he at the time? It was a number three. I believe Boya. Okay. So he's playing in Mexico. So you're going to tell me then you can be on behalf of the players association for Mexico for the players. Yeah. Wow. Who I listen to when it comes to players about MC, what's really happening in Mexico guys weren't in Mexico anymore. You mean like the national team can correct me if I'm wrong, did you guys see one one European-based or foreign based Mexican national team player tweets Facebook, Instagram, any type of message of moral support after Moines you said that now it'd been radically did radio silence. Yep. I think Muna's was on the wrong side and probably in a position where he had no choice. Oh, come on. We let if you're gonna spec. Don't don't speculate one. But if you're gonna speculate, at least at least say, okay, nothing was done. They gave you on a letter as say sure, but why do they make moon? You'll be the guy to go up there and Perret. That's his decision. You ask him. Well, fuck their economic factors that I think would drive somebody to do something like that. It's pretty obvious. I think this is important because we have discussed on many times how the big business of Mexican soccer. While it should help the game grow actually in so many instances ends up hurting specifically the Mexican player, which then we know has an impact on on the Mexican national team, though, that might be in many ways the most obvious way. Yes. The draft at buck though in which that implementing layers. Yes, you're treated like a product, I myself main no offense inhumane is a strong word your soccer player. Now. It's inhumane humane to go to the draft and see players in a hotel lobby begging for work beg for work all over this world. That's not in q they televise it. It's not an Hugh. They televise it for the world to see do. They talk about it on the nightly. You know, you every night you're drafting over there. You know, you're gonna find anybody more pro labor pro player than me. But how I mean, you have no free will of what what your future is. You can find out if you're going to a different club via Twitter. That's how these players find out. I think the biggest way in which it look opportunities and. Your career. I think is a perfect example this every opportunity to move to a team was not just a raise. It was an opportunity grow from a football standpoint. You know, what I had that these players didn't have you gotta molest. I had the US passport ability to go outside these players only have the Mexican league. And maybe that's why you moved so freely. But maybe the point is this every time you get a jump to any level it benefits you as a player sometimes it should benefit Audrey on the right right in theory. So then when you when you somehow stifle that ability for guys to jump to our stifling the player fleeing the football. I give you a quick example. And of another way is there's a player I won't name him. But he was at a club one that I used to play for and he was trying to renegotiate his contract. They couldn't agree to terms on the yearly salary. So the club said we'll tell you what. Stay current salary. And when you leave we'll give you forty percents of the transfer. That sounds like a another year. Okay. I'll do that goes to a different club. They still don't announce his signing wise. This all of a sudden there is eight what's the where do you like to use in ruins with the transfer? It appears that this club is value is valuing me as a player for one hundred thousand dollars. And this other club is agreeing to that trait of the evaluation and that cell, so all I'm going to get that forty percents. So he gave everything else for this opportunity. These are different ways that in a way, it's almost like they hundred the money right there, washing the money, right? And I just to kind of really break it down. This is the statement from professor the federal commission of economic competition. Had that Goths had knowledge that drive from the possible realization of illegal monopolistic practices. In direct conflict with article fifty three of the law of the federal economic competition commission. I mean illegal monopolistic practices. It's hard to think of anything else. At first I thought maybe they'll look on those because that's been going around lately. And that and that should be huge concern for us end up more taxes IRS exactly for the IRS the domestic iris down in Mexico. Not for they're losing out. A lot of things jumped out what it could possibly. But this is it. And if this is it, and here's the main question circle around the Mexican presses who's the whistle blower because all the owner the presidents of the teams got together, and it got city immediately after and the one question amongst them was who's the whistle blow who's the one because to prove that you're in collusion to prove that something is unwritten actually happens there has to be a whistle blower. So who actually because this has been known in circles. I don't know how we talk about openly on television radio. It's gotta secret. Mexican I've had Mexican ownership. Bruce, tell me you can't go there. We tell you where to go does. Yeah. This is this is the worst kept secret on earth. So why is there whistle blower? Why do you do? Do you think the whistlers the federation or as a guy who was all over his body? They think it's somebody within those groups what would the motivation be there? I'm struggling to see it. Why would you? Why would you like speculating, right? Yeah. Right last who's a loss who's the last Mexican owner to be in the news in for the wrong reasons. Cruise cooling and they want him out. Yeah. They want him out battle. You think this is this is the domino? This is the beginning of that. Domino. You think he's the whistle blower. You think he's just pissed that they're trying to get them out. And he's able to blow up the whole bridging theories. That's my theory. Okay. I don't hate it. As Nick on the who was I think at groups assume that day showed up, and then it became kinda his stories on a wonderful job reporting. It see point out there many ways that coffee can start an investigation. It can also come from an outside complaint. In theory. You could suggest that the players or player. Eight of lawyers representing the players have been arming a case for while. Because the report this investigation apparently began June twenty nine that's a long time ago. You know, what surprised me if that's the case or this who is the president of the players association. He's he's the the the X player who helps these players out in the players association. Note to his knowledge. No knowledge of this investigation being Spar started. They'd never come up to him and asked him. So it strikes me as odd as well. Wouldn't if you work festive wouldn't you want to get the players on your side immediately yet. I think I think the Roosters I think they're coming home. Yeah. I think this is look Mexico. The businessmen of Mexican football had been very successful at making money, but they have done so in if not illegal. Extremely at times eighty shady immoral practices. However, you wanna word at some point you're gonna get caught. And this isn't affect league Menkes Mexican national trickles down to we possibly seeing that right now with with send you a CVA say, I mean, there you go we saw with a lump Alito we've seen it so many different times with Mexican Ashley players how they get affected because of the buckle. We always wondered how would back though does finally come undone. It was never going to be the players and the owners getting together and smiling it was going to have to come from above. It was going to have to come from somebody with real serious weight. And here's that real serious way. They can hand out a ten year prison sentence for these type of practice maximum worst-case era. I'm not saying that anybody's going to jail for ten years. But that's the world that that bucked yet has landed these owners in. So there is real scene. I feel like that's the messy and Cruciani. See jail time. They're gonna end up paying a fine type of thing. Here's the thing. It's what type of fine you're going to pay. And that's where it hurts. These owners. You know, what I I don't care about the fine. I wanna know that it stopped. And I wanna know that after they pay the fine, go facet or whoever. Whoever's is overseeing this is on top of it on a way where that practice is truly radical. And here's the problem with a country like Mexico, just so beautiful. And it's people are deserve so much better is corruption is deeply rooted. So for it to be really erotic aided for it to be really one hundred percent gun. I'm not buying it. Yeah. So you end up happening really turn to the federal government solve your problems going to happen Mexico. They're going to turn over to the neighbor north. How did you get around this? Oh, we had him signed waivers of the pro rights. We gave him a restricted free agency. Whether it be twenty eight years old, blah, blah, blah. This is how they're gonna get free agents. There you go. That's how they're gonna get LS fake free agency. Well, it remains to be seen how this plays out. But it could have I think if not overwhelming at least serious ramifications for the future, maybe not the national team directly, but the Mexican footballer, and that's who makes really quickly before we in this. You would think all teams would be against eliminated by ITO, but it actually hinders the big clubs. It actually makes it more difficult for them to get players. They want. Teams actually want. The buck though are the small clubs the bottom feeders who need this to get a cell over over players. They want to sell to bigger clubs to hold it against those bigger clubs because then they won't be able to compete and really hold it against the player. Yes. But if Medica or Chiba today wanted to player that was out of contract, and before it was very difficult to get this player because the prices were too high not player weights out his contract, then you can have me. And then all that money. You're going to give to them give me a chunk of that interesting to see where it goes. That's all the time. We've got you know, you have fourteen more shows to today.

What We Leave Behind

Episode Bela Guttmann

"Hello, and welcome to what we leave behind. I'm Stefan Buick and this time I'll be profiling Sportsman revolutionary football coach and Holocaust Survivor Belle equipment. Real song on May 11th, 1947 the Italian national football team played the hungarians in the men's International Friendly. Both sides were dominated by players from one team in their respective countries off. The Italians case. This was the Grande Torino side. Most of whom were two later died along with their head coach at 16 in the Super Burger plane crash. For the hungarians nine of their players came from you. F c their coach at this time was Bella Goodman the two men Epstein and Goodman both Hungarian Jews dominating European football in Thursday had met before in very different circumstances less than three years earlier. The two had escaped to Budapest labor camp together after being placed on a list for deportation to Germany. They jumped out of a window with a converted Convent they'd been housed in and then head out for the remainder of the war. Goodman would go on to establish himself as one of the most Innovative football coaches of his time. He said many standards which stayed in place for decades. He won trophies and five countries and manage teams from Brazil to Greece. Born in 1899 in Budapest to Abraham and Esther Goodman grew up in something of a golden era of a hunger as Jewish population upon gaining independence within the austro-hungarian empire in eighteen sixty thousand. One of the first things the nation's government did was to abolish a series of laws that had denied use basic civil and political rights, including that of settling in cities. Given the chance to leave rural Villages and staedtler and settle in Budapest many people including the Goodman's took the opportunity. So young fella was born into one of the time was the second largest Jewish population in Europe after Warsaw. It wasn't an entirely accepted population. However, and while of course in comparable to the later anti-Semitism of the haughty government not to mention what was to come later in the twentieth century. There was still a fair amount of racism from the matchup population the Jews who had come to the city mainly settled in the same areas creating de facto ghettos, and there was encouragement from the national government to Majuro, perhaps by marrying a gentile or by converting to Christianity or just by giving your child a more recognizably Hungarian names such as Bella For that part though. The good ones had chosen to live in an overwhelmingly Magyar District Hungarian district. And Abraham himself had been a Clark before setting up a dance school with his wife. So young barely grew up in relative poverty as well as a discriminatory environment, of course, both of these things would help to build the uncompromising character who throughout his career put his own interests first, whoever's downfall that was 2 months. He did however have an acute sense of when to get out. By the age of 16 valid decided to join the world of work and begin earning money as soon as possible. So he followed in his family's new trade and qualified at a dance instructor at the same time. He had begun a football with his Local District team sport was still an amateur concern in Europe at this point. So he was unable to make a living from football and so traveled with his brother Armand to set up a dance school in Novi Sad which took that time was still known as a Vedic money wasn't the only concern here though. The first world war had devastated Hungary eloquent short-lived Hungarian Soviet Republic had collapsed and in its place. He's white Terror paramilitary soldiers spread out across the country seeking retaliation for the nation's perceived embarrassments and lots of territory anyone suspected of being a communist sympathizer was executed often publicly Jews were singled out as having been particularly responsible for the revolution coon and several other of the leading revolutionaries had been Jewish In this atmosphere the Goodman Brothers weren't the only Budapest Jews who opted to spend some time away from the capitol. Weather in Novi Sad they did keep up their footballing skills, although interestingly in a city that had clubs representing the local Serb Hungarian and Jewish populations, respectively, they did choose to play for the magic wac. Clearly though somebody back in Budapest have been watching these games and Exile because in early 1921, he was offered a place at mtk Hungaria who were now called mtk Budapest they'd already won the first division seven times including the last four in a row. The club who despite amateurism did have the ability to offer certain Financial perks to players were stereotyped as representing Budapest to intellectual middle-class even Jewish sites dead. So to A working class boy who grew up separated from his Jewish peers. The offer was perhaps impossible to refuse also by this time hold his thugs had began to tone down their campaign of Street meetings and meetings. And so Bella an ottoman decided to return and the move was set Goodman fit well into the empty K team at centre-half and the team continued its dominance of Hungarian football easily taking a fifth successive Championship. But this time back in his home town was short-lived Goodman fell out of the first-team ntk and was attracted by an offer from the club, which was to Define his playing career. Inspired by the muscular Judaism doctrine of Max no doubt set out a couple of decades earlier songwriter Fritz learner and dentist ignatz. Corona had established a sports club two hundred kilometers away in Vienna a Colombian represent a design as mm that was backed by athleticism a pride in their jewishness that had been denied to European Jews before now and unity. They travelled Europe North America dressed in blue and white kits with an enormous proud Star of David emblem and they no doubt offered a respite from the anti-Semitism that Goodman was no doubt beginning to see all around him. They're also very good in his first season. They finished second in the Austrian League where the team of Jewish players from all around Europe. They were managed by the X Bolton Wanderers play a billy Hunter who had the team playing in a passing star which was common to the Scottish team to the time and while not as wildly novel when compared with the still very physical English game. It was still enough of a contrast to help the team dominate the authors. First League acquire would cause a mix of rabid support and anti-semitic suspicion wherever they toured with the mixed reaction growing ever more divided down the years and yet they still manage to win one of the first choice League championships of Austria's professional era in a way that seemed pretty typical of the story book endings that seem to follow Bell equipment around their goalkeeper. Alexander Fabian broke his arm in a change for the bull but this was in the days before substitution. So doing what was common he put on a sling swapped places with a wing forward and in a moment, that would be probably considered too corny for how long would probably underscored the title winning goal only seven minutes after his injury. Goodman's performance is in particular were good enough to earn him a call up for the Hungarian national team just in time for the 1924 Paris Olympics. Unfortunately, this became a symbol of man's career will be in an unexpected way infuriated at the hotel which had been booked for the squad which was in the center of Montmartre in Paris and ideal for networking and socializing but very unsuited to players who needed somewhere to practice and they can nice rest Goodman decided to lead the squad around on a hunt for rats in order to kill them and nail a dead one to the boss of every single Hungarian official who'd accompanied at the moment trip. So after a handful of games and a debut go from centre-back, he was never called up again. Of course, this wasn't the first time he'd taken violent issue with officials and not the last but it wasn't it was perhaps the first time he did so in a way that jeopardize his career prospects so dramatically And yet in the end his deeply unprofessional protest was born out of frustration at the unprofessionalism and self-defeating actions of others. So not really a petulant kicking out so much as an exasperated scorching of the Earth. Back with her. Koe perhaps the club where he felt most at home because it was the only Club where he spent more than two consecutive Seasons as either a manager or a player. One of their regular tools of North America that Goodman found his next opportunity the team traveled to New York in nineteen twenty-six and found such a warm reception free from discrimination that was already belonged to resurface in Europe. But some of them including Bella decided to stay on in the USA a booming New York City was almost certainly an attractive Prospect for any central European and not least a young Jewish faith growing up seeing friends and family beaten in cafes and parks and retributive attacks living in a city Vienna dominated by the memory of the openly anti-semitic mayor Kar luga playing among the team's then with exciting names like Brooklyn Wanderers and New York Giants who were nothing to do with the NFL team tangentially related to the baseball team. That's another story. However, Goodman finally found a way to make a lucrative income from his talent. Professionalism and big money weren't dirty words in USA and the Northeast dominated American soccer league attracted big crowds and till it collapsed in arguments over fixed or obligations in the early thirties home. But his part Goodman seem to find himself fitting well into mid-twenties New York with the income from his football appearances. He bought a share in a speakeasy proof of his ability to make connections take risks and build friendships and within a few months of arriving in his new city. He'd managed to invest in an illegal business apparently unafraid of the potential for deportation or imprisonment if the local officials decided to shut it down right in and find him while in the US he seemed to acquire another Habit to add to hear that his other self destructive traits. He began gambling with increasing frequency and this together with other Investments with prove to nearly ruin him financially when he lost his entire business portfolio in the Wall Street Crash. Ripped from the celebrity lifestyle. He began to enjoy he was left with only the wages. He learned from playing in the by now stuttering American soccer league and around this time the two clubs established by members of the hacker of emerged forming Lackawanna. All-Stars finances were growing tighter the rest of the league and detached catch up to the Tactical Innovations brought by the New Comers from Europe and Goodman left the office to play with his old teammates again back with the all stars, but nothing quite ever recovered for him in America eventually in nineteen thirty-two the ASL finally collapsed Vienna called again, and he moved back to finish his playing career at the original Coca-Cola. Of course, it wouldn't be long before ha. Koe no longer existed. After retiring from playing Goodman decided to accept the head coach's job at Havana although political developments in Australia's Northern neighbor meant an increasingly difficult atmosphere for the club for Jews in Central Europe generally players had steadily been emigrating to Palestine and the new city of Tel Aviv, eventually forming a new huh, Tel Aviv, but even in the nation Palestine with this new club failed to achieve anything like the success of the original Viennese version eventually the Jewish and later the Israeli football leagues became dominated by clubs representing the bite Maccabi and Volvo traditions and the name Ha koe is all but fallen out of representation in professional sport. You have to go down to the fourth or fifth year of Israeli football before you can find you can find any kind of the name at all. Unable, then to inspire the dwindling talent pool available to him to any great successes for once Goodman departed a club without fighting with the owners and decided to move the Holland taking on a short-term contract managing and share that needs to become FCA to enter in the Dutch. Second tier Regional leagues fairly quickly. He had managed to stabilize a team who would previously been heading for relegation found himself a new contract, but not before negotiating himself a large bonus in the incredibly unlikely chance that the team would be promoted and win the national league. Obviously what happened next Thursday the team went on to enjoy a huge Improvement in form one entry to the National playoffs and of course of directors to panic right up until they narrowly in the final game missed out on the championship. Give them the strictly amateur status of football in the Netherlands at the time the players, of course, not for coaches a large one-off bonus would probably have bankrupted the club satisfied then with the job done that he Bell equipment returned home to Vienna or perhaps the worst possible time one year later. The far-right Austrian government could no longer hold off the threat of German annexation and thus began Angeles home almost immediately social Democrats Communists and Jews were being rounded up and deported the concentration camps. Goodman was among those few who did manage to obtain a visa to leave amid widespread reluctance from Britain the USA and other Western Nations to allow adult refugees entry, but given his relative level of English his connections and his previous experience in the USA. Goodman was able to obtain a visa to cross the Atlantic once more and he attempted to set up a new football league in the northeastern USA. Although at this point. He was obviously alone a lot Thursday. His family and friends from Europe. No other visa to have been available and unfortunately at this time the Great Depression had begun to set in and affected the factories mainly textile factories, which had provided the pro leagues main fan bases as well as the money for the entrepreneurs who ran the teams facing there no choice of security but having to live among the ruins of his only major failure to date off returning to Budapest which had just appointed a new openly anti-semitic Nazi Allied government. He chose Fame and football and his home somehow he did manage to find time for one final management trophy before war-hit hungry. He coached we pushed FC to the Metro pick up an international competition for the best clubs in Central Europe. The mood had already turned against Jews though, and he was forced to leave the job several days after the success. Anybody who has relatives who lived through the second world war? That's one of the group's marked for extermination will be familiar with situations where like Bella Goodman's. There's a certain glazing over when the topic comes up or a polite dismissal of any expression of admiration that they survived in general sense that whatever happened. It was their home and they're perfectly entitled to expound or close up on that as they wish. Good, but never spoke publicly about what he did during those years what he had to do to survive and we can only piece together parts of the story from what others have said David Belcher of his ex-wife biography. The greatest comeback includes the details which the author could piece together. It's worth reading for more information on this. And on Goodman's life in general. We know that the president avoid pushed only bought a Sheena was able to give him some work advising the club. But of these years for his own part Goodman would only ever write in his autobiography that it would be Superfluous to both of the reader with such details. We know also that he a non-jewish woman called Marianne who later on he married and his brother harbored him under increasing threats from there across militiamen who enjoyed rounding up Jews shooting them and throwing their corpses in the Danube. However, he did spend this time. We know that by 1944 Ashner was in mauthausen and Goodman was in the convent adapted into a labor camp. We know from an extremist biography that the escape from the window happened hours before a planned deportation to Auschwitz were so many of the former stars of Jaco Vienna would be murdered along with the fact most of the Jewish populations of Budapest Vienna Warsaw communities who only a few years before had been so invigorated by the football club stores or Vienna, which had thrives only with professionals artists and athletes Within These communities. Two of the thousands of victims and Budapest were Abraham Goodman and better sister Sarah. Bella however survived and his refusal to elaborate on how that was just part of the same desire to get on and live as everyone else who'd been forced to stare down death every moment of their life six years or even longer and so by now forty six years old he got on and he lived immediately after the war Goodman returned to coaching albeit in Europe that by now is inspiring very different priorities a short spell it flashes in Budapest was followed by one at your candle off of direction of the Maccabi Bucharest team in Romania where he managed to negotiate a contract that included payment in food thanks to post-war rationing a chocolate lab directors attempt to assuage his team selection and did his time. So he decided to return to Hungary and casually win the league with we pushed Another financially minded move came next so of course, his next contract would be ended by an argument and the fact that it keeps perished. He replaced a man by the name of fill-ins Bush senior might give you a clue age where this one's heading obviously kis past was shortly to be named as honved and absorbed into the Hungarian Army. But before that it was the meeting place of the two greatest names in Hungarian football Bergen and finished push push both powerfully goes the inevitable argument came when the full word instructed his team-mate to ignore some directions from his manager, which resulted in Goodman going stands reading his newspaper getting on a tram home and never coming back. With a third for travel after hiding out in an attic for that the war or simply hit by a desire to find his place that we began to travel the world Italy Cypress and Argentina his next destination before he took over in ascendant Milan in 1953. Leading them to a respectable third-place and his first season they were leading the table Midway through the following 1954 to 55 season when he was sacked after one too many arguments with the board. His press conference afterwards consisted of the bizarre. If rather direct quote I have been sacked even though I am neither a criminal nor homosexual. Goodbye. Moving out of the top leagues then he went to manage in Vicenza and plan his next move. It was during this low point in his professional life the Goodman reached something of an idea in his personal life to six weeks after losing the Milan job. He was driving fellow Hungarian dish so she'll be in the schultes car when he lost control and collided head-on with another car. The teenage driver at the other vehicle was killed on impact and the passenger was left with serious injuries and the two men Goodman & Schulte ran away. And a ton of events which simultaneously condemns both Goodman and the Italian legal system of the time the coach was sentenced to six months in prison with a simultaneous. Pardon for the entire duration of his incarceration. And therefore he escaped the pretty shameful incident was just a fine. The case received almost no publicity at the time and even now a few biographies discussed this crash, but I feel it's an important event to cover the undermines that this wasn't necessarily A likable man or a good man, but rather a complex person who for whatever reason lived for himself and his own Survival the association with Shorty himself is somewhat troubling given the latter's status as Italian football as magic are excellent in the nineteen-sixties and seventies. There isn't any suggestion though that Goodman & Schulte had any business associations or connection to each other Beyond being hungarians in Italian football at the same time. However, Somewhat inevitably by this point it was non footballing events that brought his next opportunity Harvard. Now the stars of European football had been sent on a tour of South America in order to get the plates away from the fighting in the Hungarian Uprising in nineteen fifty-six, and they wanted Goodman to be their manager there. Many of the team used this as an opportunity to deflect permanently and for Goodman himself thirty years on from his Jean in New York. Once again, the appeal of the Americas was too much to resist. So he accepted a contract to manage Bolo. In his own version of the story. He introduced the 424 formation to South America, which was used by Brazil as a Teenage Pele inspired them to win their first World Cup in 1958, Although on balance. It does seem unlikely that he was the very first to teach Brazilians this tactic the world was indicate connected Enough by this point that Tactical Innovations spread far quicker than those days when Scotland and England just through the introduction of passing. However, he almost certainly did affect a change in the individualism which had marked South American football before now his some Polish team style, which was a combination of this forty four and a kind of early ticky-tack a passing football as if inst by the crisis players could hear in training sessions of tat tat tat and ping pong this led to a league championship a year before the World Cup finals and arguably helped set the course for Brazil's domination of world football and made those romantic Notions of fellow kids learning close control wage. The beach in the minds of many including in the mind of Goodman himself these Glory Days of Brazilian football could never have happened had he never have agreed to lead honved on their door. 19/58 or Goodman hit two years at some Paulo. So following his own Mantra that the third season is fatal. He moved to his 10th new country of employment Portugal here. He entered the. Which would finally enshrine his rightful place in football history books. He said a coach is like a lion tamer. He dominates the animals as long as he deals with him without fear, but the moment he becomes unsure of his hypnotic energy and the first hint of fear appears in his life. He is lost. His first offer in Portugal came from FC Porto who were fighting a campaign that saw his team overhaul a five-point deficit to Benfica to secure their V and his first Portuguese title Benfica game in town responded by offering Goodman a better contract and by now shouldn't really be a surprise that he readily accepted that's began the most storied and successful. Of his and have been features lifetime. At Benfica, he made big changes as soon as he arrived his First Act was to terminate the contracts of twenty players. He trusted in the clubs used system to better follow his instructions. And what should be rewarded with two consecutive League titles. More was to come and he may have 1961 Benfica became the first Club not named Real Madrid to win the European Cup. They defeated Goodman's Old Budapest Club. He passed on the way just before that down. According to Legend the chance meeting in a barbershop led to one of the coaches best cruise yet there he bumped into josecarlos Bawa a reliable Defender who played under him at some Paulo. I'm catching up on past successes by mentioned that the federal yada theme he was now coaching were about to tour Africa in Goodman's own words. I told him listen to me old man. If you see a talented player gave me someone who was born in Portugal keep his name in mind a month after this conversation. I was at the Barber's again. And as if I was telling you a joke Bauer came in again, What's up? Have you found any one for me always said I saw a black light in Mozambique. I wanted to get him for myself, but those fools are asking for $20,000 for him. What's the light called? His face was being lauded as he blurted out. It was stable. Goodman displayed at the Benfica board to secure the signing of this talented young player who of course would go on to become the best player in benfica's history the same way. He survived throughout the years by building, that's being bold and ignoring tradition. There's a Bill had been playing at the defective feeder Club of sporting been figures main Rivals and they tried everything they could to persuade the eighteen-year-old to change his mind but Goodman got their first even went to the steps of moving the boy to a safe house in The Algarve for two weeks after signing him appointing bodyguards to make sure Agents from their cross-city rodbell's wouldn't be able to offer another contract. It was a Bo became balance fulcrum a Dependable source of goals from the front that allowed the Coach Freedom to position other talented players around the pitch and he had had been stayed this would surely have been the beginning of the legendary partnership. Of course that wasn't to be Bella's own three year rule was nearly up and his team were heading to a third-place finish in that Year's Portuguese league all-out attack was on the decline, but it would have a Samsung in the European Cup as he was able to let the line for a planned execution of the Old Guard Real Madrid. Getting to the final however was no fait. Accompli Goodman got to visit Vienna on the way as his team overcame Austria Vienna on the way to a semi-final against Bill Nicholson's Tottenham Hotspur before that thought. Oh, they traveled to Germany to be SE nunberg during which the first signs of tension between him and benfica's board began to appear. Unusually, his wife Marianne had accompanied him and the team on their trip to Germany after that the club sent their coach a bill for half the price of the couples accommodation. That was perhaps in his mind as he assured the English, press ahead of the semi-final second leg in London that he would leave Benfica at the end of the season. Part of the scheme to divert attention from his players and onto himself. He also use press conferences to bring up the relative physicality of the English game ensuring a pressure on the matches Danish referee to keep a close eye on a on Spurs it enforces. After a 3-1 win in Lisbon, the the match in London came and mine games were not yet finished Goodman locked his Benfica team in their dressing room until the very last moment before kick-off protect them from any demoralizing effects from the hostile crowd tactics like this. Probably why he's often known today as the Hungarian morenia in any case. It seemed to work benefits. Golden Owego within 15 minutes extending their lead to 4-1 on aggregate Tottenham score just before half-time and converted a penalty shortly after the break. One goal ahead. The Portuguese team finally showed defensive resolve Doug in and secured their place in the final. What followed next went down as one of the old-time great European Cup finals Taking place Amsterdam's Olympic Stadium the 1962 European Cup Final was a transition a passing of the Baton from one area to the next President Bush Bella. Goodman's old adverse effect would seek out eusebio at the final whistle to exchange shirts a symbolic transition and one that Goodman himself are created. Of course, he would not stay around to experience it. Before the final Goodman attempted to imbue his life experiences into the squad. He told them of his time at a player at the Olympics back in Paris where he'd met celebrities at the athletic world. He explained how their records have been broken in time by almost unknown competitors trying to explain the ever advancing World of Sport and the need to live not only through your past successes. The game began and soon Benfica with two girls behind both goals scored by push push. A test of Goodman's philosophy that when the opposition score he didn't mind because they were going to score more and they seem to be borne out by academics equalizer in the 33rd minute ago. They you know, the Old Masters took the lead and push Chris completed his hat-trick six minutes later to secure real has lead into halftime. Goodman had a speech to prepare and in the mixture of Portuguese and Italian with which he communicated with his players. He truly believe they could win and this belief was infectious. Antonio samoas himself a future manager remembered this halftime speech roughly translated as Real Madrid tired Real Madrid tired Real Madrid old old old they kind of went around Madrid cannot run you Stefano dead. Five minutes later than figurehead equalized. From then the younger Benfica team stamina began to show not least in a stunning individual performance by the Pearl himself is a Buell first converting a penalty. He turned himself then shooting for just inside the box to make it 5-3. It was the skill of eusebio that finally sunk the shoulders of real and confirmed Benfica second European Cup in a row Goodman was carried off the pitch by his players in gallery push to swap shirts with his able and the beginning of a new dynasty was in place. Of course, it wasn't to be. Goodman sort of bonus for this unprecedented success but was met with a stubborn Board of Benfica directors who didn't think a single coach could be so vital to the clubs victories the story goes off then cursed the club condemning them to never win another European Cup and until he was paid his Jew and indeed after five subsequent European finals, including the following years and nineteen sixty-three wage type of failed to add to this cup in international competition. It is worth noting though that he did return to manage the club for one more season 3 years later. So any bad blood was surely overstated? Even if Benfica did actually suffer from this curse though, Goodman himself never saw this level of success again. He was off again to someone that paid him more appropriately for his services and long time. It was another new club a new city and a new country Pandora role of Montevideo in Uruguay who were the world club cup holders at the time. Next came his only job managing a country where the handful of games in charge of Austria. Although this was mutually unsuccessful and Goodman perceived a lingering anti-Semitism in the country. He'd fled after Angelus off. So after that final season with Benfica, he wound down his career with jobs and Switzerland Greece where he went his final trophy in his career a Greek cup with Panathinaikos month and finally Vienna once more before before finishing his career with butter in 1973 at the age of 74. He had managed 22 Cubs won trophies and five different nations and coached some of the greatest players at the mid-twentieth century. Moving back to Vienna one last time to live in an apartment near the Opera House drink melange coffees and talk football. He lived content for six more years before dying age. Eighty two. Goodman is a fascinating character for many reasons in a lot of ways. His life is a perfect history of the twentieth century Ashkenazi experience in Central Europe from the Glory Days around home birth to the Resurgence of state-sanctioned anti-Semitism in the nineteen-twenties the fact he managed to both escaped to New York and laid to get trapped in a Nazi occupied City the fact he's Thursday Plantation and death through a mixture of luck and Wiles and then finally his resurrection as a secular driven man who was utterly dedicated to his work but struggled to find his place amid lingering racism. He is understandably held as a rare hero of Jewish sporting success, but for the man himself, his ethnicity seems to have been a difficult subject the fact that unlike many of his hockey team mates. He never worked in Israel and indeed. I can't find mention of his even visiting the country. It seems curious particularly in light of his first love apparently being this Zionist team from Vienna. It does seem fair to say that given the unusual length of time. He spent they're both as coach and player and his pre-war involvement with various ha koe projects in Europe and the USA. Perhaps like many European Jews who survived the Holocaust and chose to remain in the continent. He never really felt comfortable in his identity after the war perhaps he really did believe that General notion that had suffered. Let's get on with it. Let's think about football as his autobiography suggests. We can only speculate this uncertainty and the uncomfortable hero status of Goodman is precisely why I chose him as the first subject in this series. I know people in my own family who survived now it's just concentration and just like him they chose to leave that. In the past and never discuss it. Goodman story is often told with those blood spots left out such as his utterly mercenary nature his gambling addiction that probably led to him working in unsatisfying jobs far longer than he should have bought all the hit-and-run in Italy but to ignore the users to wish for a cartoon version of reality. People are complicated they work for their own prosperity and they live with their own flaws. And Goodman was no exception if he died along with so many of his Heckler teammates Auschwitz or if he'd stayed with New York, then he'd still be a hero for his playing career. If he led Benfica to the only European cups in the club's history, then he'd still be a hero for his managerial career and that he helped to change football both of his both as a player and the manager that he survived haughty and the Nazis and but he left a complex so deep at Benfica that the curse of Baylor Goodman is still believe to this day all of these things ensure his place in twentieth-century folk Legend. Off off and off off off. Thursday

3. The season has officially started!!!!

"The back to the ninety and extra time podcast <hes> thanks for listening <hes>. I hope everybody had a great weekend a football field weekend. Hopefully i know i watched a lot of games followed. A lot of games was frustrated by a few games <hes> but overall it was a really good weekend. <hes> let's let's just get into it. <hes> premier league finally here so last year's runner-up liverpool started off the season <hes>. I'm a great game <hes>. I guess if you're liberal fan not if you're norwich city fan so much but <hes> mosala started it off. I mean first goal. It wasn't own-goal so that one really doesn't count but liverpool won four to one against norwich mosala goal in the nineteen th minute. <hes> seems like they're just picking picking up from where they left off last season. <hes> virgil van dyke who i think this year is probably gonna end up winning the bond door. He scored a goal and then last year's hero from the champions league or egi. This kid is i mean he's. He's probably not gonna end up staying well. Maybe maybe he will end up staying at liverpool for years. I'm sure some other some other teams definitely gonna try to pick him up like. I said he had a great year. Last year not really great will we'll say but he definitely showed up when he really needed to <hes> he ended up scoring in the forty second minute and like i mentioned game ended up being a a four one norwich did get a goal the last goal the game but you know it was just like a consolation goal for them. You know congratulations to them. They scored against the defending champions league champions then fast forward to saturday. Everybody knew manchester city was gonna come on strong playing against west ham with sam's not a good team <hes> they haven't been for a while <hes> man city. Just i mean it just came out and dominated. Pep guardiola was not playing. He wanted to show that <hes> you know his team is just as strong strong as they were last year that nothing has changed raheem sterling first game of the season. Yes i mean it is against west ham sound like they were playing against. You know liverpool pool or manchester united or chelsea chelsea not doing too well yet but he comes out has a hat trick aguayo the scores of penalty late <hes> in gabrielle j. seuss you know he had a great <hes> copa america continued things with his club team. Mm-hmm man city ended up winning that game five nothing <hes> <hes> just great game for the team that finished first and second last year man city and liverpool in other games <hes>. I didn't get to see this one or any of the highlights born muth and sheffield united won all tie <hes> <hes> burnley in southampton is three nothing burnley crystal palace in everton zero zero tie that is actually surprised rise by that watchwords zero brighton and hove albion three nothing too big there <hes> tottenham and aston villa estherville newly promoted tottenham coming off a great season that they had last year three one tottenham and you know the <hes> then moving onto sunday one of the games that i guess was you know highly anticipated even though it doesn't sound like it would have been but <hes> lester versus wolves wolves had a good season last year i mean they they surprise a lot of people. The newly promoted last year and they finished in the top half of the table. Will you know less has brandon rogers. Now is they're. They're managed here. The game wasn't the best i mean there were some scoring opportunities but <hes> it ended up in a zero zero tie. <hes> i mentioned in the first episode of the podcast that you know the team that i follow in the premier reliigous arsenal so i did watch some of this game not all of it. I unfortunately didn't get to see <hes> ah bombing score the goal you you know because i didn't watch that part of the game i saw the highlights later obviously but <hes> you know he basically saved the team. It was a one zero arsenal donal and about being scored in the fifty eight th minute <hes> one of the games it a lot of people had anticipated to be a decent game at least was a manchester united added against chelsea any other year. This would have been a huge match but you know just united coming off of. I guess you know manchester united fans would say not a very successful year last year <hes> in chelsea new manager frank lampert <hes>. I guess you know chelsea. Elsie vans have high expectations. I think this game brought them back to reality <hes> it was a four zero loss for chelsea. <hes> not a whole lot to <hes> <hes> to really say about it. Frank lampard said that this was definitely a wake-up. Call for them and i mean they got smacked in the mouth. I mean there's really nothing else that you could say about that. <hes> we'll see how you know how things go moving forward but chelsea does not look good. <hes> it is the first game of the season so i guess we'll see but <hes> yeah that was. That was not a good game for them at all. Definitely something that you know being one of the top top four clubs in the top four clubs in the league. You don't expect them to perform is terribly as they did. <hes> yeah just wasn't a game for them. Those are all the scores from the premier league for the first the first match day. <hes> as i mentioned you know doesn't really mean anything match day one but the table right now oh man city man united liverpool than brighton and hove albion. I don't see bright in ho bobby and stay in there. I really don't see manchester united staying in second place see there but i i do see obviously city and liverpool staying in those champions league spots <hes> <music> <hes> <hes> okay moving onto league off. I matchday of the <hes> the french league <hes> i watched the quite a few of these games <hes> i don't know why usually typically don't watch a lot of the the french league but but <hes> you know it was available. It was kind of missing some of the other football summer <hes> so the the first game now. This past friday was monica against leon. Usually this would be a pretty decent game <hes>. I don't know what happened. I watched it. I watched the replay. <hes> sess fabric gas had this red card. I'm not exactly sure which minute it was. I don't remember but <hes> it looked as though it was an accident like he kind of tripped and then stepped on on the forward you know his back foot. <hes> the brutality left was pretty nasty but <hes> initially well. He just got a yellow card then <hes> the official took it to v._r. He looked at it for probably a minute or two and you know as they slowed it down and you know the kept showing the replay on tv a looked worse and worse <hes> but in normal speed to me. It looked like he tripped or stumbled. A little bit was trying to regain his balance stepped on the the achilles lower calf area of the striker for <hes> leon and says fabric gas ended up getting a red card. I thought it was a little bit questionable but you know it is what it is. The referee decided to send them off off then you know after that i mean it was over. Muslim belly had a goal in the fifth minute. Memphis had one of the thirty six and then lucas to sar. I had one in the eightieth. Once fabric gas got sent off. There's absolutely nothing that monaco could do and they're playing at home is the first game of the league all season. It's absolutely nothing they can do <hes> and then fast forward to saturday <hes> marseille who's usually early a pretty good team. They were hosting grim. They lost <hes>. It was a two zero game. <hes> reams beat marseille <hes> <hes> then let's see yeah. I'm going to butcher these names. I'm sorry my french is not very good but <hes> all year against bordeaux on jerry is not there like a mid table team normally <hes> but <hes> they beat three one opening game of the season. I mean on gear was playing at home. I don't know what to say about bordeaux. They just didn't really look like they came to play. <hes> breasts played to lose <music> to a one one tie dijon lost two one to <unk> montpelier and ran and <hes> it was a one zero win for ren and the niece played a meal <hes> niece one two the two zero <hes> so the the the game that i basically watched the entire game of though was on sunday <hes> it was lille versus. No now the reason i watch his games. It's because fellow american timothy way. Oh was playing this game. He just recently transferred from from p._s._g. To lille take a pretty decent game. I guess he did get a yellow card <hes> in the sixtieth minute but <hes> i mean lil one to one. He didn't score but <hes> you know as i game with new club you especially. He was at celtic on loan from p._s._g. So so he hasn't really wasn't really playing in the french league too much recently <hes> so we'll see you know. He's still adjusting his new club. <hes> we'll see how it goes for him. I mean i hope he has a really good season. I said he's an american so i i do follow. A lot of the americans are playing in europe pretty closely <hes>. I don't know we'll see we'll see how are we are how his team you know go moving forward. <hes> the rest of the league strasbourg and metz played to a one one time and then the biggest game only because it's p._s. G playing biggest game of the week was a p._s. G in nam <hes> obviously lead. This game was embarrassed so p._s._g. Totally controlled this match from start to finish <hes> cavani scored the first goal was a penalty <hes> and then you know the man. That's definitely going to step up now. That neymar is not always gonna be there or potentially may not be there for the rest of the season. He may leave a mistaken not play that often but killing him bobby. He's always going to step up. I think he's twenty years old now. <hes> he scored in the fifty six minute it's going to be the killian in babe's show especially if neymar leaves <hes> the kid is amazing he just he's just amazing. I mean there's nothing else. You can really say about him. <hes> an angle de maria korea sealed it in the sixty ninth minute <hes> to win it but i mean there's really no no doubt that <hes> p._s._e. Was going to win this game. They are the top team in league. Nobody is really challenging them whatsoever. No one has really challenged them. For the last i would say three or four seasons. They have so much money going into that club. <hes> granted the league is basically a one team league <hes> you could almost say the same thing about the bundesliga seems to be happening more and more in europe but <hes> they're. They're just good. I mean they. They're like an all star team <hes> so they're they're gonna i mean they're gonna continue to have scorelines like this three zero two zero three one and it's gonna be a long wrong season for any fan. That's not a p._s._e. Fan so basically if you're not a p._s. Defend your team is playing for either champions league spots. He wrote oblique spots or just efficient second <music>. <hes> <hes> <music> okay so now moving on to the german cup or as it's called here the d._f._b. Po cal the foosball boone poco book colleges another cup or trophy <hes> started this past friday so so now the third and second league teams here already started playing <hes> so they've had you know one or two games depending on the <hes> the teams the bundesliga the starts this coming friday the first level of german football <hes> so some of these boons league teams have not played lead actual games. I'm sorry there's a plane flying over right now. <hes> some of these teams have not played a <hes> an actual league league match. They only played friendlies or you know some of them were like <hes> by mutation was in the international champions cup and you know they've been playing a series as of actual <hes> friendly's but no competitive matches yet until the digital call starts so he's me <hes> starting on friday i three games was a english dot against nuremberg <hes> number one that one zero english english dot is there an okay team but <hes> actually nuremberg's not really that great of a team either but there <hes> in the second division nuremberg ended up winning that game <hes> then you have am sorry i am going to mess up some of these names because germany they have the cloud some teams do some don't slow story. He can look that up but <hes> ding in played or hosted actually bruce dorfman. We all know bruce. Dorton is one of the best teams in germany. You know arguably in europe. <hes> the easily won that game two zero wasn't a high scoring game but you know in these early deutsche pakol matches is <hes> some of the top level teams they do not play their their best players <hes> they let some of the younger guys get into some of the lesser experience experience guys play. Why some of these games aren't you know blowouts like you'd expect them to be but also there are times where some of these this lower division teams. Will you know beat some of these top-flight <hes> top-flight teams <hes>. They're called giant killers. You you know it happens in the f._a. Cup it happens in every cup <hes> but it does happen a lot in the early rounds of the deutsche macau so the last friday match was s._v._n. Sand housing against borussia moenchengladbach game was in san housing and housing is a small team <hes> small stadium <hes> eh blue moon gladbach one but it was only one zero so you know four goals in those three games you know blowouts then on on saturday <hes> we had kaiserslauten hosting mites now mites is in the bundesliga kaiserslauten is the third level of german football league and consciously in one this game easily to two zero which is kind of embarrassing for minds to lose to a team that's you. He knows struggling to <hes> to make it back. Kaiserslautern used to be one of the better teams here in germany <hes> but you know they've had some you know financial issues. They've had some performance issues and they've been struggling to you know now at this point to make it even to the second league. The second bundesliga let alone the first bundesliga but they easily got rid of mites on saturday in the deutsche poco. <hes> <hes> then we had magda berg playing fribourg in fry borghese bundesliga team. They won that game one zero <hes> aachen hosting leverkusen and labour kuzin win this game easily for two one aachen. Is you know they're smaller team. You know <hes> liver kuzin is normally challenging for europa league or champions league spot so they dispatched them pretty easy. Okay then we had <hes> billing in hosting fortuna dusseldorf. Dwarf <hes> for dorf is in the bundesliga. They won this game. You know easily three to one <hes> then we had vittoria toria berlin one of the three berlin teams it was actually or there's actually in this competition <hes> they were hosting armenia bielfeld belfield one that one zero <hes> let me had vaca nordhausen who is in the fourth level of german <hes> football hosting being as escobar how our is in the second division <hes> they won this game easily four to one <hes> then you one of the surprise games team that i actually had never heard of called verbal. They were hosting augsburg. Villas in the fourth division of german airman football alex berg is and has been in the bundesliga for for a while now <hes> but verbal beat them two to one <hes> <hes> which is shocking to everyone. I mean i like i said it never heard of the team before and they were able to beat a team. That last year embarrassed <hes> my team v._i._p. Sticker in the bundesliga so abu augsburg is now out of the deutsche poco <hes> next we had <hes> s._v. Dresen also hosting shocker new fear <hes> you know even though shocker had a pretty terrible terrible season last year by their standards. <hes> you know they beat this team. Another fourth division side <hes> they'd beat them five zero <hes> next we had dozen door hosting dynamo dresden dresden is in the second league but they're constantly challenging every season at least for the the last three or four seasons to make it to the bundesliga dresden one three two zero next we have <hes> verts berg hosting huffing heim oftentimes byzantine not too far away from from where i live <hes> but verse berg i believe is in the second division. I can run the maybe in the third but this game in regular time finished three two three and had to go to penalties and often heim one five two four on penalties so they'll l. events next. We had <hes> bow natale hosting v._f._l. Bomb bookham is in the second division bernie tau. The fourth balkan won this game three to <hes> next week at home another team that is not too far away from where i live last year home in the very first round hosted eintracht frankfurt at frankford defending champions last year and and beat them last year. <hes> knocked them onto the first round this year. They weren't so lucky they were hosting f._c. Heidenheim the team that vs to played last week in the second bundesliga and these two teams. I guess you could kinda consider them. Rivals even though they don't play in the same <hes> the same level because it really close to each other but <hes> heidenheim one to zero in the last or excuse me saturday game in the georgia pokhara was at lists delmon hearst hosting vertu bremen bremen has been a staple of the bundesliga for a very very long time and they won this game easily <hes> six to one <hes>. I'm gonna take a little break <hes> for it gets to the rest of these. I'll be back in a minute <hes> <music> <hes> all right. I'm back sorry. I'm getting over a little bit of a cold that i had this past week. So i've been coughing often a little bit probably sniffling. Sorry gazza have that all up in your ear all right so it gets to the rest of these doors how matches <hes> and i go through these is fairly quickly. <hes> you know pause a little bit but <hes> so yesterday <hes> we had a f._c. Sour brooklyn hosting being regensburg <hes> saarbruecken won that game three to regensburg regensburg sees me as actually pretty decent team surprise. They lost that game but in brooklyn's playing at home. Maybe had a little bit more to play for me but they actually had their top team plan but they're moving on next. We have ober noise land. They were hosting darmstadt. Dr been you know in the second division for a while. They were in the bundesliga actually actually a couple of years ago <hes> but darmstadt you know they're definitely the better team. They won that game. <hes> six to one <hes> another team that i've never heard love and i'm probably gonna whicher this name but some roar hosted a holstein kiel kills another one of those teams. It's always on the verge of getting promoted to the bundesliga but they can never seem to quite get over the hurdle. <hes> kiel won this game six nothing. It's no issues <hes>. Let's see next game. We had a rodent housing hosting paderborn paderborn. <hes> just has got promoted back into the boonies leagues fell out for a couple of seasons <hes> this game after regular time finish three three but paderborn <hes> they won on penalties for two two. They're moving on <hes> this game this next one. I was actually paying close attention to this. <hes> it's a walled horth while sorry volvo hof mannheim hosting eintracht frankfurt now now this vault horse mannheim team they are fourth division level team and track frank route and you know they're constantly in the top. I would say top eight eight in the bundesliga sometimes make it to the europa league <hes> but this game the frankfurt was down early. I mean they i. I don't know what they were doing. I don't know what happened to them. But <hes> i remember turning on the game i believe it was two one frankfurt was losing <hes> and then i connects to watch the game but i had the <hes> like the scrolling commentary going on and frankfurt put in ontario antero. I believe they put me in the seventy. Six minute and frankfurt was down three two to well riddick decided to just go off because you know there's a lot of teams that are looking at possibly purchasing him and he scored three goals in twelve minutes to ensure that frankfurt move on to the door to pokhara 'cause they were definitely in trouble before they put him in but the game finished five two three three of those five for frankfurter from ribic epic and i don't think i mean there's a possibility he'll stay in frankfurt but <hes> i don't know especially after that performance <hes> so next game was a v._f. Lubick doc hosting f._c. saint polly last week. I said that stugatz next game would be against st pauli but i was kind of right kind of wrong. Their next game in in the second bundesliga will be against c- saint pauli but tonight. Stu guard is playing on the road against hunter rostock. I'll get to more of that later but <hes> that this also <hes> luebeck in st. Pauli finished three three in regular time saint pauli one of four two three on penalties penalties <hes> next via be ike stott hosting hertha berlin one of the berlin teams <hes> her. The berlin is in the bundesliga. You know like they're usually top five team. <hes> they handle them easily. Five to one next we have <hes> gherman lia hct start riposting union berlin newly promoted to the bundesliga at the expense of stoop guard union berlin <hes> near berlin. They definitely have something to prove this year so they easily handled them. <hes> six nothing i think union berlin is going to be a definitely a team to to reckon with this year in the bundesliga. We'll see i mean i. I think they're gonna probably finish top twelve <hes> like i said they. They have great fans. We'll see how they do <hes> next game v._f._l. Also brooke hosting red bull leipzig rb leipzig depending on who you ask <hes> leipzig you you know they're always top five bundesliga <hes> but this game finished you know with a three two win for for leipzig we we have kim nitsa f._c. Hosting humber r. s. v. his game finished. Two two and hamburg ended up winning six five on penalties. He's <hes> m._s. V. duisburg hosting <hes> usually i would watch this game because fellow american julian green place for i didn't watch it this time <hes> but duisburg ended up beating two zero so forth out of the competition and the last game for yesterday today in the <hes> deutsche paul was via envy's baden hosting f._c. Clone clone is newly promoted to the bundesliga <hes> <hes> but this game in regular time finished three three and it took penalties but cologne one three two on penalties so they'll be moving on tonight <hes> this four games. Don't you paul. We have harsher f._c. Hosting wolfsburg i think wolfsburg will probably handle limpert easy <hes> karlsruhe s._c. Another team is not too far away from where i live about. Half hour forty minutes <hes> they're hosting hanover stewart beat hanover in the first game of the second the second league season but that game could go either way. I mean both those teams in the second division so <hes> i don't know <hes> i don't know and it's in karlsruhe. I guess we'll see <hes> this next game hunts of rostock doc hosting my v of b. stood guard <hes> sadly the same game was played last year and hunter rostock kicked stu <unk> out of the chapel cal. You know they had stupid bad season last year. We'll see how it goes this year. Hopefully they can beat them <hes> <hes>. I just think it's funny that they drew them again. Two years in a row and last game is energy cut boosts hosting buyer munich. Now anything can happen as we've seen with some of these other scores but i don't see by munich losing this game even playing on the road <hes> so we'll see what happens with that as well. Those are all of the first round matches for the f. b. Poco <hes> tom. We'll see how the draws go for the next round <hes>. I'm just hoping that tonight. That stewart can win so okay. Let's get into some transferred dance for news all right so <hes> one of my favorite players to watch a few years ago. <hes> mexico probably more like five six seven years ago was mario batali as like the way he played placebo had that long streak where he was not missing penalties at all <hes> you know he's been playing in france france last couple of years so i always kind of keep an eye on mario well kelly <hes> he was at olympic marseille nearly played twelve games for from a now you know his contract is and he's kind of you know without a club so <hes> you know i guess sort of an unprecedented move who've because usually don't see people going from europe to south america is usually the other way around but <hes> it's been rumored that he's gonna assign with brazilian club flamengo <hes> two and a half year deal now the brazilian season <hes>. They're right now. They're on match day fourteen. They played thirty matchdays so you know he'd be there for you. Know a little bit more than than half this first season <hes> it's an interesting move just because you know going from europe south america style of football and south america's completely different from how they play in europe <hes> i would say south america's probably maybe a little bit more like actually i i would wanna say that it's more like the premier league because they play a little bit more physical but they play completely different styles. They have a lot of finesse players but then they have their enforcers <hes>. I don't know <hes> but he doesn't seem type person to me that would fit in well in <hes> in brazil but who knows maybe he'll prove me wrong. I mean he's done it before. <hes> hopefully it'll work out for him. He's talking about or they're talking about a two and a half year deal so he finished the rest of the season and start up <hes> on a solid <hes> two year deal afterwards but right now. He's without a club so i'm just surprised that no european teams would pick him up. I know he comes with a lot of baggage. You know he has issues. He's issue with managers and teammates in the media in the past but move into brazil's your seems a little out there all right so <hes> moving onto neymar <hes> he didn't play. He hasn't played in paris's last two games. The last game they played was the the first game of the season and in a friendly match before that or he's not friendly match but the the french supercup he didn't play saying that <hes> it seemed like the move that he was trying to force to barcelona was off now. It might be back act on <hes> barscelona head initially offered a p._s. G coutinho endoume belly plus cash asia for neymar paris's demanding a two hundred twenty million euro fee for neymar <hes> but now it seems like p._s._g. Would be willing to do cash plus cotino <hes>. Maybe maybe that'll be enough for them but you know they haven't had him on the team. I'm who knows. I just don't see how it would work with messy. Grease mun suarez and then then you add neymar into the team. I don't know how that would work. <hes> i don't know i i was also reading that. You know there's still the possibility of him. I'm going to real madrid this point. Who knows i. The only thing i do know is that he won't be going to the <hes> to the premier. League transfer window is closed but but <hes> yeah. I guess we'll see this. Neymar thing is probably going to go on for at least another couple more weeks and if he moves you know it's good for paris. I guess if he it doesn't i guess it could also be good for paris. Maybe but it's i would think it would cause some issues in the in the dressing room. Even though you know there are players in the the team say they still want him to stay there. I guess we'll see another one. I've been following. I think most people have been is <hes> paul pa hauge <hes> it seemed like he was trying to orchestrate a move to either advantis or real madrid during the summer <hes> but obviously the the the english <hes> transfer window closed it closes earlier than all the others because their season starts a little earlier than the other <hes> so he'll be there at least until the winner winner the winter transfer market opens <hes> january <hes> but they're still i guess the possibility of him returning to vent his or going to real madrid rid but as of right now he's staying at united. I don't know if it'll cause any issues. I mean they destroyed chelsea yesterday. So we'll see <hes> last gareth bale. He still in still in real madrid <hes> last game for them. He actually played came on the sixty first minute. <hes> you know give a half an hour of game. Play <hes> in <hes> the massive loss to roma <hes> ended two two after regular time roma one five four on penalties <hes> but hi ms rodriguez who's who's not hurt wasn't in that game which is probably the the sole reason that <hes> bail was able to come off the bench. <hes> hamas is not injured so you know maybe there's the possibility that he's going to move on to napoli or to even to who ethical madrid <hes> so now bail is playing again. I thought you know maybe he would move. Go to some place like by munich or you know maybe even an italian team like enter or a c milan but <hes> it looks like he's going to be staying at real madrid for the foreseeable future especially if <hes> if i miss is moving on so. I don't know there's a lot more transfers that are you know still potentially working lukaku. He was able to to get his to go to enter <hes>. It's kind of weird the way the transfers work is kind of like a domino effect. Some one person leaves the team and then it can initiate a bunch of series of events to get other players to move. Maybe something like that needs to happen in order for for bail to move on but as right now it looks like he's going to be staying madrid <hes> mm all right and lastly. I just wanted to finish up with my predictions for some of the leagues in europe ford award this coming season <hes> so i started with the premier league <hes> last year obviously manchester city wanted <hes> with liverpool missing out on the title by one single point <hes> so this year for my top five for this league. I have a man city finishing first liverpool finishing second arsenal finishing in third manchester united finishing fourth and tottenham finishing in fifth all right for la liga which starts this coming friday <hes> i have barcelona finishing first real madrid finishing second athletico madrid in third and fourth is kind of tough but i have valencia the bundesliga which starts this friday <hes> it always seems like the top four are almost the same every year but this year i have by munich winning it dortmund finishing second rb leipzig finished third and labour kuzin finishing fourth all right syria which does not start until the twenty fourth of august seems like a long way from now but <hes> i have have events finishing first followed by napoli inter milan roma and in fifth place possibly luzio so the roman lots. You could switch all right. <hes> league on the french league obviously have p._s. G winning that <hes> followed by leon then marseilles and then sent a tin <hes> the era odyssey the dutch league <hes> to me. The strongest team in that league is i ex. I mean you know they were so close to making it to the champions league final last year but i have i xe winning it followed by p._s._v. then as e even though they just had a terrible thing with their stadium part of their stadium collapsed because some wind in the netherlands <hes> then fourth fan nord v i have roots fach fan ordre they could you know it's either between the two of them all right and lastly in the premera lita the portuguese league which i don't really follow too often i will follow these teams in the the portuguese teams in the europa league champions league <hes> but have been fica winning the league followed by porto then in sporting and then braga so i'm going to hold onto this list and i'm going to see you know this is how my list looks now. I guess we'll see how bad or how good looks <hes> in may when the league's all star to to close out so we'll see how it goes and with that think i'm going to end this podcast for the week.

58. My Europe Top 5 League Predictions!

"I. Have you Wednesday I know I'm late. Yes. It was my wife's birthday and to take care of that and You know make sure she was happy and you know Monday. Things just. Didn't work out for me to be able to schedule time into podcast. So I, hope everybody had a great weekend. Hope you guys got the opportunity to not only watch some matches, but maybe spend some time with the family Here in Texas, we had that Hurricane Beta. I guess it's gotten so bad that we've run out of names for for hurricane into the year. so I guess be gamma but. We had that going on. So it was like raining a weekend and it just. Alexi. Wasn't terrible I guess but early Sunday and Monday Tuesday. It was it was pretty bad. So and even today the sun was out for a little bit but it's been some pretty cloudy and cool. You know springs official or excuse me Spring Kadam I'm getting ahead of myself fall is officially here summer is over luckily here in Texas, we don't have to really deal with like the cold cold. You know scraping froth off the windows or anything like that but It does kind of suck that summer's over and you know most of us didn't even get like a real summer this year we just had to. Sort of deal with you know what was going on I guess. Lot going on in the football world I'm going to try to cover as much as I can My notes might seem like they're all over the place, but just bear with me. All right. So like I mentioned last week that I was going to go over my predictions for the top five leagues in Europe for this coming season. Obviously. The season started. You know right off the heels of last season for most you know most of the leagues with the exception of France. It seems like some of the players and teams are. Getting, like a really really quick start because there's none of those woes where the players have been off for a month. Then go into like a training session or whatever. You know preseason and then they kind of find their legs in the end of September. Early October which was always weird to me because in Germany that's like when it's really really cold but it seems like that's when the players finally. Get over that that Kinda. Summer Rust I guess. But this year they don't have that. which is good for people watching for fans and spectators but I think it's bad for the it'll be league overall. Keep him on the players didn't have like a busy summer, a lot of them especially in Europe because. You know covid. and Euros were canceled or postponed. To be the Copa America. But now it's going to be on the flip side. So now you have players that started playing in June in Germany's case, it was made June July started playing again then. They roll straight into the new season. In for you know most of the top players at least will play for the national team's. it's GONNA be rough because they're not going to have a summer next year. The boonies league is probably going to end. In May believe. And you know just for example I I don't know all of Europe excuse me but. Bundesliga. In May and the year olds is starting June. So these guys are not going to get much time to to rest and recover, and hopefully that doesn't lead to more injuries towards the end of the season within within Europe. I think you know the same thing would have happened last year essentially if we would have had the euros but. A lot of the players specifically, the player called to National Teams in Europe would have had more time been given more time by their clubs. To. Rest after the competition. Ease into their new club season and You know the just not going to get that this time. So you know two seasons in a row to summers in a row I should say that's that's pretty rough playing a full league season even though. This year people say, Oh, the players you know they got. They got the covert break. These guys are still training, but at the same time, they weren't doing it with their clubs. So a lot of them fell off I remember when the German League I thirty backup a lot of the commentators were saying, Oh, I didn't know such and such had a belly. These guys are always like in peak physical condition, but then you have them basically restricted to their houses or apartments. Who knows what they're eating a lot of them sure eating like you know, carry out takeaway type food because you're not going to the training facility in getting meals cooked and prep for them. So some of the guys I wanna see they were fat but some of them looked like us, they looked like normal people with regular bodies when the seasons for started So, it'll be interesting to see how they are come next summer. Because they started and. Had that break. Got Back into shape and now is going to be running basically for a year. The Bundesliga. Isn't even going to have a winter break this year I think they might get like ten days maybe but usually. Right before Christmas until the last week in January, the German league off. That that won't be the case this year. So I'm interested to see. How? That plays into. Team performance injuries. And whether or not specifically in the Bundesliga League I followed the closest. If you know Byron can be challenged this year. You know how much I can't stand by Munich. We'll. We'll see what happens. So I'm just GONNA go League by League top five leagues in Europe last year I added Portugal to it. I ended up last season, not watching a single match of the Portuguese league. which is weird but. Last season was weird so. Here's what I got. Four League in France? now despite them having A. Horrible beginning to their their new campaign. I have PSG winning the league. Marseille's shing second. Leon in third niece in fourth and Lille finishing fifth. In. The Bundesliga. As. Much as I hate to say this, but you know I mean nobody's really challenge them lately you. Have I against you can say been a couple of seasons recently where. Like December, whatever people were like oh By me is on top of the League. Remember last year last. December. Bruce in which glad back on top of the League at Christmas. And you know Byron came back and still won the league even though you know the season's we because a co hitter would ever. But I I can't really see anybody challenging them. especially with them coming off of. You know the Champions League win but this season unlike you know any other. Might be some injuries later on. Who knows Byron might have to actually go to the winter transfer market? Maybe by some players we'll see we'll see you know but for the Bundesliga. Pains me to say but. By Munich winning it rb Leipzig in second. Bruce Dorton in third. Beyer Leverkusen in fourth. And Bruce Sandwich and Glenn. Beck in. Fifth. It hurts me to not put. My teams do there. But. I will be happy if dugard finishes. Between like. Tenth and fifteenth. I think I'll be I'll be pretty happy if they finish. Fifteenth tenth to Fourteenth. want them getting relegated again? If they can challenge for top ten that'd be great but I don't know we'll see a long season ahead of us so. All right. Syria. I have no reason to believe that the event is will not win again this year. But. Inter Milan did look good to finish the season despite losing the Europa League two severe. but you know we'll see they are they're just the dominating. They are the buyer Munich of Italy. so I have event is finishing in. First. Inter Milan in second. Atlanta in third. Napoli fourth in Roma Fifth now. Those three four and five slots. Who knows because anything CAN HAPPEN TO ATLANTA? They've had to really really good seasons. Back to back so. I don't know we'll see but I think lash finished third. We'll see I definitely didn't have the top three for last year I'd have to look that up. On the INSTAGRAM for the PODCAST. So to look that up and see but they're just one of those teams have been surprising people so. Let's see Lolita. This last year. Somehow Real Madrid managed to to win it so them winning it again, with Athletico Madrid. Finishing in second. They've just had a pretty big signing for them happened over the last day or so. Barcelona in third now, the only reason I put Barcelona. Behind Athletico in real. Madrid because at the end of last season, they kind of had an implosion. Players so they wanted to leave Messi was really really close to leaving if it wasn't for covid. in the dates in the timing messy would be playing probably in Man City right now. He probably would not be in Barcelona. you know, Barcelona obviously, we've still got a coach a different coach said, the end was not making the players happy or whatever. but if it wasn't for Kobe and how it pushed the season. If the season would have ended, you know normally in May. And exact same thing happened. that June tenth date. Vesey would have said You I'm out and there would have been nothing Barcelona could have done. Legally. They would have had a to stand on. They give him this contract as he can leave at the end of every season if he wants. We'll see if that's still the case. I, think it is. For next season. So there's the possibility that maybe he won't be there next year, but I just don't see them bouncing back from the terrible year they had. By Barcelona standards because that was like stupid I'd be I'd be happy. But, yeah, we'll see we'll see how that works. So. Sorry. I had Real Madrid I athletic Madrid Second Barcelona Third Soviet fourth and Valencia V. All right. So Last but not least. Top Five in Europe. you got the Premier League. Now, this one is always the toughest to. To figure out. You pretty much know that Tottenham is going to be somewhere in the top five typically. and you know with Liverpool Man City the way they've been playing lately. You know it's it's always pretty much paddle between those two. But for me. Even. Though Liverpool had a great season last year they agree season season before just missing on lead by one point two Mansi I still personally believe. That Man City is the better team. Now I got outperformed last year by Liverpool, but my personal opinion. Mansi is the better team. So that being said, I got Man City I. Liverpool and second. This hurts the say to Tottenham in third arsenal fourth. And Man United. In fifth. So you know there's a lot of teams that have been. You know kind of. I guess like waiting to include lesser city I mean they were like right there lash they were in second. Place for you know really really long time and They they just weren't able to pull it off zoo like I said, the Premier League is really really hard to predict and I could be completely wrong. I. Mean who knows Tottenham could win the league. Let's hope not but Tottenham or Arsenal win the league you know but I, think Nancy I. Think they have the best team in the Premier League they just didn't show it last year. With the League Champions League. This year, we'll see I. think it'll be different but We'll see. In another reason that I'm basing this office. Because we saw how difficult at the time. Liverpool had against leads. I mean. You know I game this season whatever but they seem to have difficult time. They couldn't figure them out so. If you know be also is a great coach. So we'll see how the second leg for that goes the return fixture when they play right after Christmas. we'll see how that goes because who knows, I think leads could definitely take some points from from Liverpool. And they're gonNA surprise some other teams so knows Liverpool are ineligible susani leads could potentially finish outside the relegation zone like well outside of it, but we'll see you know. I think it's it's been there time for a while. Sixteen. Years Outed Premier League whatever but they didn't make top five but the to Mansi Liverpool Tottenham Arsenal Manchester. United. So, we'll see. We'll see how that goes All right. I'M GONNA. Take a quick break right right here. Voting isn't just going to the polls on election day any more. Options like early voting mail in voting and ballot drop boxes are available to more voters and are growing in popularity. How To vote a tool created by democracy works breaks down the options. Your state offers for you casting a ballot empowering you to decide when and where to vote. Keeping you safe during these covert times. Decide when and where you'll vote this year at how to. Vote. All. Right. Welcome back, the French league despite the fact that they ended. So you know before anybody else they just called the league quits There's only a couple of weeks I think in Europe that did that I think the Dutch League did it and Belgian league I believe but. They were obviously the first ones to come back to start there. twenty. Twenty. Twenty one season that confused me saying that hold on twenty twenty twenty, one season So they're already four matchdays in also keep in mind this year that they got rid of the the Coupe de la League. So the the League Cup, in France is no more they only have the the coupe, the front. and. LICO. So their schedule is a little less congested that Kinda worked out that they had a plan to get rid of the coup de la. League. For a couple of seasons now last year was the final year bitten. I guess he just kind of works out helping the players out this year because of the Kobe, condensed season and You know like I said therefore matchdays in. Some results here on Friday, we had Leo in them play two, zero, zero draw. On Saturday we head. Lynn. Two, to one over Bordeaux it's actually long I. Don't know why I always say length because it's spelled lens, but it's law two to one overboard though ran to the one over Monaco. On Sunday despite you know name are being out Imbaba being out he he posted a picture the day. So I think he's out of the the COVID protocols or whatever his quarantine period, but in bobby should be back shortly but PSG beat niece three zero. Mets to one of rim. Montpelier for on jazz one breast to. Lorient. Too Skinny breast three to. Strasbourg. One. Dijon. Zero No one. Etienne to and then Marseilles in Leo play to a one one draw. So, after four matchdays. The top six in legal are said eighteen with ten point. With ten points with nine points. Law is in fourth with nine points. Lille in fifth with seven points in Monaco is in six with seven points. Bottom of the table. Eighteenth Strasbourg with three haram. In one, thousand, nine, hundred, one point, and in last place we got dijon still have yet to win a match. mentioned. Neymar. He was given a two match ban after what happened in the Marseille match. In, you know the French. Federation and the League they're both investigating. You know what was going on. I've seen videos and read reports about. The French federation like hiring lip reading. They can know what the conversation was between. Neymar and the other player. We'll see what happens Neymar claiming that he racially abused him. The other player against said that Neymar said some. sexually explicit or inappropriate things to him or some homophobic things or whatever. So I guess we'll see. you know that that sucks for them. Of course, he only has one more match out and as I mentioned, bobby will be coming back in. and like I said I still I still believe that they're going win the league. Just because there really is there seems to be no real challengers outside of Marseilles. Maybe. In France for PSG. All right. So let's move on to the premier league matched a two. On. Saturday we had Everton five was prompt to. Leads got their first win back in the premier. League. Four to three over recently promoted Fulham. Manchester United Won. Crystal Palace three that was A. Trafford that. You don't expect Manchester United lose a match like this early in the season to a team like Crystal Palace. Not to take anything away from crystal, palace but with the the amount of talent that Manchester United have. Snow way they should drop points there. Arsenal. To West. Ham One. Then, on Sunday we had Southampton get beat by Tottenham five to to. Brighton and Hove all Mian shut out. Newcastle three to one. Liverpool a two zero victory over Chelsea and then lesser city four. Burnley to. And then on Monday, we had Aston Villa one Sheffield. United Zero and then Manchester City defeated wolves three a one on the road. So in the last episode, I talked about Gareth Bale. And You know they're Real Madrid possibly being able to secure his. Obviously. If you've been reading news went through and he has gone to Tottenham on a loan deal that could become permanent by the end of the season seems to be how they do most of these deals now It's good for both clubs. Tottenham, they get a player that they can. They can really really contribute man sitting gets rid of a player that. Some consider in like toxic to the dressing room. He was getting upset when he wasn't playing D, Don did not have him as part of his plans moving forward. he was set to make thirty million euros this season in another season where he made thirty million. Euro. I don't know the specifics about the loan deal, but I'm pretty sure that Tottenham is going to be paying him fifteen million euros a year. So fifty percent of bill. or his wages I should say and the Real Madrid will also be paying fifteen. which sucks you know for Real Madrid but it's good for Chelsea I mean they they get a good player and. It's good for both and it's good for the player to to be closer to home I. Guess He's back in the Premier League back in a team where he He's going to have plenty of places to play golf. You know he'll get to play more obviously because he wasn't getting selected of real. Madrid? And you know now he'll be able to contribute so. Wish them luck I guess we'll We'll see what happens. All right. So Syria also had matched one. On Saturday we had Fiorentino one. Torino zero. held Verona Roma play two, zero, zero draw. Parma lost two zero to Napoli. Genoa four could Tony Won. Saas Willow in Calgary to a one one draw. And is three some dory zero. That was the debut match for under a pillow as the manager for event is. Rinaldo scored in that match there's no reason to believe just because they have a new manager rookie manager at that that. There's GONNA be any slowing down. I don't I don't know who's going to win Champions League last year I. Predicted that last season, I didn't predict. Guest that event his win it they got knocked out by the on. I don't think they're going to win this year either You know they do have a great team pierre-louis a new manager though probably win Syria. No issues. Champions. League. The different story so especially with the way that a lot of other teams even. In Italy in playing. I don't think they're gonNA. They're gonNA really go too far. The. Probably win their group in the Champions League but you know we still have a month. Little month. To See actually. No, I think the. October I actually the group stage draw for the Champions League. So we got like a week to figure out WHO's GonNa be playing who, Oh man I was planning that show. On Monday we ACL Onto Bologna zero. So you know the Kobe which I'm tired of saying. match they one, four, six teams is actually going to be next week. next Wednesday. So we got Benevento it's going to be hosting Inter Milan as as hosting sponsor and lots you will be hosting Atlanta so they'll play. Pressure the playing this weekend and they'll play next week for their match day. One matches. All right. Moving on to Spain. Saturday we have built Brielle to eibar one. A, one, two, zero, a- sooner. So the Vigo to Valencia. One. On Sunday we had west zero today's to. real. Betis to. reveal. The lead zero. real associated in Real Madrid played two zero zero draw. and then there's a couple of matches were postponed suburbia in Elchi. Levante and Athletico Madrid also postponed and Athletic Club and Barcelona play today we'll have those results and I also have the results were gonna out of this, but I will. Post it on twitter. For those interested. Right and then last but not least is the Bundesliga. So. But waiting for this for a while. I can't tell you how much I do not like buyer Munich but So we started the season off data match on Friday or Saturday play the first match It was Byron Eight. SHOKA zero. Show at Home you know the European. Does your book cal and Bundesliga Champions So. loan dowse key looked great. I mean so he can be looked. Great. Thomas Look. Great everybody. Looked good. You know they had some youngsters that were scoring. I don't know they're just great team I mean, I don't know what else to say I don't like them. They're a great team. we had cloned too often high three. Berlin one Augsburg. Three. on-track Frankford Intermediate Bielfeld played to a one one draw. Vertebra in one. Hurt the Berlin four. The F. B. Guard to Fribourg three. talked a bunch last week about how much I do not like Fribourg. Sticker did not play will to start this match. The second half was was much better. A preacher was three zero at half and You know they had some had plenty of chances. They had plenty of chances to to level it. Finish game off for the point, but they just weren't able to do it I you know I. Just I have hope for the future they just they showed me that they can. You know when? They behind that they can. You know still put in the effort to win you know Lisa try to level the game. They didn't give up which is great but much rather have them scored eight goals a game and be bored. You know so. that they're playing at Mites. On the road this weekend. Definitely be watching it and look forward to seeing if they can carry that momentum into the next game even though they lost their first match but you know it's like a welcome back to Bundesliga type thing Let's see we had gruesome Bruce Dorfman three bruce much. Glad bags zero. On Sunday we had rb Leipzig three. Mines one. And Wolfsburg and by liberty and played to A. Zero zero draw. So Those are the scores in the. Top, five.

Everybody remembers what was it twenty fourteen in Brazil when he bit t aline couldn't imagine them to being. Teammates but you know. Things Happen So we will be good to see how he fits in at the Madrid. Diego Simione as the manager still there. Obviously. I don't really see.

Right after the the World Cup in in twenty, twenty two. Point two years away. And You know he was on on the World Cup team as an assistant coach back in like twenty ten when they. Play Spain in the final so. Know. Good luck to him Hopefully he does well. He did he definitely did well in Atlanta? Atlanta one the league in like their first their first year. He was definitely big name to to come to the US so. Should wish him luck. See what else do I have here? UEFA they they made the announcement for manager of the year. Men's manager of the year. Let's see. There's three people. Got yu-lian Nagas men are below. Your KLOPP Liverpool and Hansie Flick from. By Munich and also for the wave of men's player of the year. The three finalists this is first time in like ten years that either Rinaldo or Messi or not on this list does pretty big. Kevin Debris from Man City. Rubber New Dusky from by Munich and men will no you're also from Munich so. Based on those three players I think you can tell who I hope wins it. He probably won't though Kevin Lebron's. Great player. He had a phenomenal season. He had twenty assists in the premier. League which is crazy. still chasing the record set by. He he won the Premier League player of the year. Great player I mean he's suspicious. Amazing. But me personally I think the rubber dowse. GonNa win it. He had like fifty five goals in all competitions. So Champions League. Deutsche Poe cal. I. Don't know they count the Super Cup in that. He had a great year. There's no bond door be awarded this year but you know most people believe that he would have won. It had there been one. which you know think he's deserving of it. You know. So he probably will win for men's play the year. And you know Manuel Neuer he's had a pretty decent last couple of seasons. I would say he had a great comeback. Back in two thousand, eighteen people seeing his washed up after Germany, get bounced from the the World Cup in the group stages. Near he's had a couple of you know. What's the injury but he stuff that he's come back from and he just you know he didn't look like himself. he had good new last season twenty, nineteen, twenty twenty was was good season him so. I mean obviously he's in, he's in the final three. So as far as managers. That one is tough. because you get hungry flick. Go by Munich champions. League. He wasn't even the managers start the season and. By Munich still ended up winning. All of that you know. Your Club won the Premier League in the fever club World Cup. Winning the Premier League after not winning the English top-flight for thirty years for Liverpool. Is Pretty big. he'll never have to pay for beer ever again Liverpool but I just don't know if it's enough. To. Get over Hansie flavor coach who like I said didn't start the season with the team. And then you have you Leonardo's men. Coach Bobby light to the keystone. Be The coach of WanNa saves a coach off in high at one point. Team did well I mean. They they went deep into the Champions League they didn't win anything. But you know they they had a good year so and you know they started off the season basically where they ended last year you know winning so they didn't win the Champions League. Last year anything like that or the Bundesliga. Still a great team, and now this year doing it without team over owner. who was like their main goal scorer for the last two or three seasons? So. So we'll see we'll see how that works out. hopefully, Kevin Durant wins it for the Men's player of the year. That's what I want. I just don't like Biron I'm sorry but Yeah. This weekend I plan on watching a lot of games. Got All my sports packages figured out. You know got everything done. But one of the things that I'm looking forward to. Is Fee for twenty one. I already purchased it. But you know the playstation five playstation player plays five comes out. Around the middle of November. I told my wife last year. I didn't want anything for Christmas because I didn't know how much the PS five was going to cost this year. Now we know how much it's GONNA cost. I don't need the one, the five, hundred, dollar one let you can put a disc into I. Haven't used a disk in a playstation in I don't know how many years. but I miss the preorder window. I completely missed it or I didn't miss it. They just sold out in like less than a minute everywhere Walmart? Target. Online everywhere and spree disappointed. So I don't know. If when they come out on November twelfth or whatever day it is in. November. If I'm going to be able to get one but I'm still looking forward to playing fee. Twenty one I've always put an open invitation out there to you guys to anybody that wants to play me Far. I've only had a few takers I haven't played with Joel Louis from the soccer stupid podcasts in a while. I think they kinda didn't WanNa play with me anymore because I was. Putting in that work on them you know. But I will say far from there he kicked my ass and one time he played me but haven't played online probably since the last time I played those guys which was month I think I was still living in the AIRBNB the last time I played them so. I'm looking forward to it to for twenty one coming out. We'll see what they changed because like tell people I'm primarily a career mode player don't really play foot or ultimate team. Just. Don't like it. Was Too much of a pay to win paid a play to get the good players at least. We like doing that don't have time to just constantly play and play games to build up coins even though I do play a lot but I don't WanNa do just that I can have the opportunity to win a player that isn't really gonNA matter or a player that I can essentially build myself do my youth academy in career mode. That was Mu Geeking out a little bit but. You know it is what it is so. But like I said I'm definitely definitely imported so. I think that's GonNa.

I don't care more to drain my Bank account, everybody up here every single day goes into the office into the laboratory try to cook them some great stuff you guys. That's why he's here from New York, New York. You are listening to extra time to ribbon by continental from the students midtown Manhattan, I am injure. We'd be with my partners in soccer, mattdoyle David Goss, and he lives, he is alive and rocking. Swag from Tasman from his many travels, Kaelin car. Welcome kaelin. It's been like a huge running theme of does he work anymore. What does even do I didn't even know you're gone really didn't notice? That's that's even worse. You just do your thing. I've, I'm saying, I was never worried. That's what I'm saying. One day candid way. The only the only reason I knew you were gone is because you're Instagram stories. Like you're, you're like living a life out there. Yeah. Doyle, you like Instagram? Do you got? Got a newsletter. You got a Twitter account. I didn't know you too, they'll newsletter. Yeah, I'm kind of on the Graham is like a personal thing haven't monetize that what if he was going to be well, he wouldn't be the Instagram version of himself, we have a new, can we go to the full on YouTube here? If you're watching, you can produce hundreds can we go to the full view here of the studio? Not, not us to nobody wants to see us just the full view which scarf. We also have something very special that we've gotten framed, we should probably put this in the soccer Smithsonian. This is im- less red going in on mattdoyle. This will forever sit whenever you're on this show met this is this is the prize to me just in front of you already Ola Doyle. We're not. So sure have you been stopped on the streets of New York. I confused even pep wasn't pep Guardiola. No, but I take this is nothing. But a compliment said, thank you to the to the denizens of our MLS for. For deciding. I'm the budget version of pep Guardiola. I was gonna have bad news for you. The Instagram verse reality thing to be the reality part is not the part you want. Really do. Hey, getting in the conversation. That's right. He's got a he's got a wardrobe budget to help him out a stylus. If you had I feel like the to work and the only although today only difference between Doyle and Pap is clothing. I didn't get a good first step. I tactical news right there. You know, same. Maybe not in the same direction that happens buyers pep had a Twitter. You're the Twitter version, actually, that's it. Yeah, I think so I think of these are compliments coming up women's World Cup. It is the US Canada actually Canada. Probably already played by the time you're this Jordan Angeles going to help us. Get caught up on everything going on with the US. She is in France. We'll talk to her in just one. Second Gold Cup favorites. Four of them one for each group eighth through d the rest of the preview coming on Thursday, along with perhaps. We're working on it. Gregg Berhalter and Tim Howard here right here in the studios, US national team. We're going to deep dive this thing to losses to friendly's a lot of people getting pessimistic. Real quick MLS final for the the Gold Cup break. It happened. There was some great games entering results with those open Cup. And then the mailbag but yeah, the women's World Cup is here. How have you been enjoying it? Awesome. Candidate Cameroon today on Monday, and he'd soccer at all times, currently streaming. Yeah. I mean if in case you weren't had. You know exactly what time recording. Can we talk about that French team? Maybe. Handle their business easily. Quarterfinals is the way the bracket setup if France wins their group, which they're gonna in the US, if we win our group quarterfinal in Paris in Paris just start prepping for windy and ARD right now. And a lot of she's Bradford. I was trying to think who on the women seem would back matchup severance probably the second best back in the world. She's the best share. But she got into doesn't have quite the same size. Now, I think you need to kind of put two on her though, maybe someone on front, and then and then Becky behind her. So she can't kind of cut away. But there was really no context she had a free run up Renard deer and that just can't happen. Wasn't the only moment of quality from France, set pieces. Yeah, they seem to be the favorites, right? Now, of course, the US have aspirations to win their second US, though. Germany, started slow England started out. We don't know the candidate resolve yet. So everyone is kind of taken their time to settle in except for the hosts who everyone, I think, didn't take she got a hat-trick, darling. No jamaica. We love love some ball Sidney. They really Schneider love that to nineteen years old still in college hero and goal for the reggae girls, Italy with some dramatics knocked off Austrailia. Let's get Jordan angelie. Now, though, this are AT and T call to the field. We're going all the way to France for it, Jordan. What's up guy? You didn't favorite town that I end and it's France but spelled R E I am at. Ron see your helpful there. I was just gonna say Bonjour. Yeah. We didn't say didn't want to. You obviously know, extra time bits let's call them. You're on the ground in France, though. What you like take what are you doing? Incredible to be here. It all just came together in the last couple of months or excuse me, last couple of weeks. Really? And it's been so much fun. So I traveled the team has been here for in Europe for almost two weeks. Now just acclimating to the time zone and getting ready and prepared for the tournament, but I came just a couple of days ago, and I am going to be covering all things fan. Experience here, which is going to be a blast for me. So I am going to be outside the stadium. Getting shot for their Instagram account, which is all about the fans called at since nineteen thirteen and it's gonna be fun. I just gotta hang with the fans talk to them. See where they're from. And then go into the game and watch and see the US team. Hopefully dominate turnament visit Java Plum dig job job, you guys. It's real. So the group stage Thailand gets started for the US what you need to see. From the US women in these first three games. You know, I think it's a really interesting start. Right. You start with Highland. Who's a team that not a lot of people know much about, and it's a team that you could look at and say, okay, this, this should be a cakewalk for the US, right? But I think what's important for the US is going into it with this mindset that they typically have, which is, you know, it's daytime, it's time for us to go. And I wanna see them off to a quick start. I think that quick start and getting some bowls early in this game allows them to utilize their three subs. Right. Get three subs and get some more people with as many playing minutes as possible, because as the World Cup starts to go along. You don't know what's going to happen. Right. So I think the, the more people they can utilize in this first game, the better really and then I think all is though to really Sweden the last game of group stage because we all remember back at the Olympics who not this out. It was tweeted, so this is historically has been such a big game for. The United States and has been a great match up. You know these two teams life supply Sweden has the technical ability to do a lot of good things on the ball on the field. And so can the US start to get a little bit of momentum heading into that game against Sweden? And then, you know, this is what this team, does best it's they get to the knockout stage and then it's like they, they turned into these, these robot humans who are like we must win right there mentality of winning is incredible. And I think for me, that's the reason why I can never bet against them. This is a squad who knows how to win win. The big moments come. So it's exciting here. There's their fans are starting to arrive. A lot of people saying in Paris, but now coming out around to probably to some champagne before the game but also get ready and prepared for the game tomorrow. Perfect environments, hang out and get ready for the World Cup. You talk about that winning. Mentality. We know about outs Morgan Becky, Sarah Brown Carli Lloyd, who will probably start on the bench Meghan repeat those players we know about. We know that they can do that, who are the x factors though, who are the other names for people who don't follow this team day in and day out who you're looking for to step up Linda her. And I believe that Lindsay Horon is one of the most intelligent, footballer that's playing the game right now. And she allows the players in front of her that you just mentioned in Morgan and repeal and heath to, to use their creativity. Right. And to get in these goal scoring places because not only does she do defensive work. But she's a player that she can have that late run into the boxes score ahead head goal she can distribute in the final third and make that perfect pass to flip through a forward. So I think Lindsay Horon is gonna be so key for them, but their midfield in general, how do they defend as unit? How do they protect the back line? Go forward with that. Vigor that they have. Right. They can really fly forward and add to the attack as well. But all eyes for me on Durant four years ago, just a couple blocks away. There was a victory, prayed. This is the defending world champion the US women's national team. So they will win again. They will go back to back if what Jordan what has to happen. This team needs to surround themselves with this belief that they can do it. You know, there's a lot of outside expectation, and there's a lot of people saying, oh, well, is it good? Is it as good as that team? Do they have the defensive qualities of that team? And I think when you look at it and break it down, I think they absolutely do. And I had the chance of going to the press conference with Julia Roberts analysts Nair earlier this week and a lot of questions about the defense lot of questions about listen, air and confidence. And for me, listen, there is the goalkeeper for this team. She I've seen her grow. She was on my team in the Boston breakers eight years ago, and her growth and ability in the last eight years has quadrupled. She has become a seller goalkeeper, so her confidence and performance going into this tournament is, is out of high. And I think that writing that and keeping each other. You know, just keeping the focus on themselves and not having outside distraction. A lot of them talked about the leading their Instagram's, and they're, they're Twitter just to be here. And you know, it is such a different world than even four years ago. So I know someone didn't do that. A lot of them just keeping the focus on themselves. So I think just plays unit and and get the players that they want streaking hot in these first couple of games. Right. Get some a couple of goals under their belt so they're feeling good going into the knockout stages. You've been around this team basically the last two years as they've gone about this process. What do you make of the feel around these players right now? What do you see from them in terms of where there mentality is out or where they feel? It's interesting that you ask that question because I feel like this team is so different than other national teams that I have been around been with. They have this useful to them with a mixture of this experience. And when people talk about the women's national team. They talk about this mentality that they've always had. Right. It's it started before the ninety nine is. And it's it's grown through when you go into camp. It is like serious business, and I'm not saying that isn't like that. Now, they, they can flip the switch and get to that serious business. But these youngsters have run a little bit of silliness, and goofiness the team that I think allows them to live in this in between these two worlds of, like, okay. This is fun. Right. But we're competing hard. We're doing what we love and we have the, the will to win. So I like that. I like the mood around the team where they can kind of live on that edge of Boll fun and. Petition expectations to win Canada trying to get their first. What are the expectations for Canada? And what's the player to watch is anyone not name Christine Sinclair? It's hard to say that, right? Like how can you not say it's Christine Sinclair? She is just a goal they think three right now from tying AVI Wambach four to get the, the record all trimbe international goals. So it's hard not say it's Christine's in, but for Canada, I think for them realistic expectations. This is a good squad. I just wonder if they have what it takes in. Those key moment to go all the way right to win those big games if they're down a goal in the knockout round in the quarterfinals in the semifinals. Can they figure out a way to win? You know, when you think about that, with the US me, personally, I oughta medically say, yes, they'll figure it out, right Canada. I don't know if I feel that same way. But what they need to do to get to that point is they have to serve Christine Sinclair, and a lot of that comes from actually Lawrence on the wing Janine Becky on the wing and the player for me to watch is another midfielder. It's jesse. Plumbing? I don't know if you guys watch this girl play, but she's a midfielder, twenty one years old. And she is flagging she's a baller. She can do things on the ball that a lot of people can't do and allows the creativity excuse me, creativity on this candidate team to be up a couple levels. So watch out for her crucially, sees me, Jordan. Angela I'm thinking Christine Sinclair got around the brain. I'm like a hundred eighty one goals hundred goals, follow Jordan. Hundred. We always follow Jordan on the ground in France. You can do that at since one nine one three that's the fan page for US soccer. She's taking over before let you go, though, Rapids beaten for those winds. Let's go what's happening. I, I think I, I hope it's not needing I haven't been home for a, a lot of those games. But honestly, the moment we got, lawless Boubacar. He has changed this team. I the first game I watched him play in the back and there were little moments of leadership that we had yet to have where he a good clay happen. He went up to that player in, like padded them on the backer like gotten their face. He's just he's a leader. And I just am like all about this guy. So I think he helps and I think it really was it was you have to get that first win. And then it was gonna things we're gonna change after that confidence has built and yeah, I am liking this. You guys have liken it, champagne in France, cauda, Rapids, winning while you're gone. Everything's going to Angeles way right now you can follow on Twitter, Jordan Angela. It's kind of like a mismatch of the two names. We'll put it out on Twitter. Account. Go check it there. And since nineteen thirteen is the fan page for your soccer Jordan. Thank you so much drop them by here. How fun thank you guys. Guys, thanks to Jordan, for taking a break from champagne and as she said to slaughter during the break, it's a tough life for her and France right now. But she did say Ceylan that many of the US women's national team players are deleting their Instagram and Twitter to stay focus. That's the LeBron move. Can we count on you the saying or not, no way? And why are they doing that? I've been having much fun following along. Yeah. I don't know what I understand why the LeBron move is is kind of like going into the playoff mode, wanna focus and really be, I think the web, Ron references at least your old right now. Just just gonna. Been stuck on the road Colli MU. Yeah. Posing in front of graffiti walls. And this is what we north baby. We the north you are big thrown together, for sure. Yeah. I love Toronto. So I'm in Montreal guy. No, I'm everything but I'm a big Toronto homeless above all. The only thing that world put me in a corner, David doesn't like us. He fakes and mayonnaise. That's fair which might be similar. So what I don't like men as you kidding me. You can get a label me with that broad brush. That's messed up man. Let's go Cup. It starts on Saturday, sixteen teams in this edition of the tournament up from twelve from years past the top two teams in each of the four groups move on to the quarter-finals. And then, of course you know what happens from there all play for the title, which historically only two teams win, which is the US and Mexico Canada glasses on the field. And what somebody plastic moments in Concha, calf Canada one and two thousand they've got big dreams here. But today, we are just talking favorites from each of the group, which means we're not talking Canada, because they are in Mexico's group, but the weird thing about favorites in this tournament. Dave is it's kind of use, but it's kinda all up for grabs. Yes. So you go into this tournament, and there's a reason it was set up where Mexico, the favorites they are the clear by far best team in the region right now. And the. Group, they're bringing still probably the best group in this tournament with, I think a little bit of a clear barrier, between them and everyone else, then you talk about the US and we're going to get into it more. But what's happened the last two games? You look at Costa Rica group, which isn't really bringing through another big generation right now, a lot of the guys that are major parts of the CM are still part of that golden generation that went through and twenty fourteen and you've got guys like gorgeous in res or thirty three thirty five years old. It doesn't feel like their team ready to storm through this. And then you've got Jamaica team that maybe isn't their best group. And you've got one hundred group that similar Costa Rica, they've got guys in their thirty five like manner, Figaro who are still starters and they've got young guys like who you're not sure if they're ready to take over this tournament. So it's, it's like it's like normal as usual, USA, Mexico, and then at the same time it's completely unknowable because there is no groups right now solidifying themselves to push through to be at their best. It looks like this though. The thing with Mexico and we'll start off with them group, a favorites no doubt about it. Apologies the candidate. I think you'll under. Or stand in this case is that it is L three and they have stars but they don't have nearly their entire group of stars. You're talking Carlos Vela out there. Cheetos ticket Tito, corona, tricky was on. Oh, hector. Herrera Achi, Diego, Linas, mcgilla, and more. Those guys that is outta there. Come on, as an earned ten that be mentioned. What does. Okay, fine. So your, your fill a huge talent. He's still a huge talent your point stands. This is Mexico's d b minus team. They're still clear favorites. They're really solid at the back. I like their young midfielder, Eric Gutierrez is not like a match-winner. But he's like he moves the game around, and he allows the honestly he allows the attackers to be better. And when you can give everybody five percent more that makes a big difference. And then they do have a matchmaker, like Jimenez is the best forward at this tournament. Yeah. You have human as in Guardado, if you're going to your. Group. Those are still some pretty good names. They're primarily again or a division. So I just think when you when you lollygag when you look at the at this is a little bit of a test of depth, and I think that's where the US has failed so far, and where Mexico is still a step ahead and why I mean, they have rebel Pizarro. And we've seen what I think done is torn in the champions in the last couple of years. He's been fricking amazing. I think this is his tournament to put his stamp down as when you look at the group and you guys named all them. He's the pure chance creator in that group. And when you have Gutierrez and Gordo around you who will cover ground, and the have a good backline. That's the best part of this group. Sanal Varez, you've got the go raise still in this group. We've got on tests. I love who finally maybe gets a chance to break through. He's been a pro- like five years, only twenty one. So I think this is the one for pizza to show that he can be that guy, which is what we've seen a lot of years with Mexico's like they'll bring a group that has some veteran pieces than one or two young guys really. Can this be the one where you breakthrough when it was kind of Gutierrez last tournament? It was on him. And Chucky Lozano to be like is. Are you guys ready to know? They didn't. So now terrace in twenty fifteen twenty fifteen was the last time they won this, those seven time champions of the Gold Cup are Mexico. That is the most all time. The US has six this is Tom Martino first tournament in charge heck Merano might be out of this thing. And there's like a bizarre thing going on with the roster right now Dave because you can't make changes from that twenty in less you have injury issues, but you can only do it from the preliminary roster of which. Hotter. Didn't really want to take advantage of. Yeah. There's something where he said, like he didn't want players to feel like they were close, if they weren't actually going to get called in and be confused. So rather than name forty he named twenty six because they're not adults who really know how to operate, I guess, in a functioning world. And so he can only draw now from that twenty six if Marino's out he's not lost two players to injury. The only player can add is Earl Antuna from the galaxy so not like for like replacement and anyway, so shut out MLS galaxy forgetting another player on the roster. But it was a bizarre scenario, I think, from the beginning and he came out early and announced twenty six it wasn't even like, okay, I'll bring forty into a camp and I'm not going to like, then cut him on. But at least we could go back to them, but they know they're not gonna come probably. But hey, in -mergency maybe we can name name, it dozen veterans who are like, okay. Just breaking case break lag on case, right, verges eight, and he didn't do it is really strange a little bit of mismanagement from Totta Martino that said, even with the mismanagement, even with the short Rosca or even playing they've, they're clearly the favor. And I think that's part of what it is. I think it's just like these are my twenty six guys, I'm riding with them. I'm not worried about losing one here and there. I think what he was making saying you might lose more by trying to name more of a bigger roster and picking the twenty six and reading out. But what happens if relevant ministicks takes an injury? Oh, honestly, like why not just have already that rebate there in case something, something happens like we see every Gold Cup somebody pulled a hamstring. It's usually Josie outdoor. Like what, what happens to? It's just it was weird from Todd Martinez. TB D there. So you end up in a situation where Marino's probably you're starting centerback. And Alvarez is probably starting demand and Diego rans can play both those positions. So if Marino's out he can't play demint now in place valves. He's probably you're starting centerback. They do have a rod who they do have Cesar Montas but it's both the injuries came in a similar part of the field. So it kind of puts them in a weird spot Canada Martinique and Cuba. Are the other teams in group a? Right. Yeah. We'll, we'll cover them in depth there, but Mexico favorite to run through this thing to get to the final, and then, of course, the US on the other side of the bracket, as Kaka calf generally builds these out a always Jonathan dos. Santos is the one in the lesser on this team. From the L A galaxy he did score against Ecuador. They won three two against sequitur or they beat Venezuela. Three one Martino has beat four South American teams while in charge of L tree. They're the favorites in this tournament versus time. I've ever won four straight games against South American teams. That's, that's pretty good. I think you might take that we could be. We might be okay. Well, I think they should I think they should rehire. So we are definitely dig into the US extremely deeply. So stay tuned for that one. Let's go to group b though, Costa Rica is our favorite out of groupie Haiti Nicaragua. And Bermuda are the other teams here you mentioned a Dave, this is sort of an aging, Costa Rica squad. This is not the name dean, what Alvar Aalto submarine. Oh, got it. Oh, he's back. He unretired what awesome weird. Kakha calf. I don't get thirty seven years old. He came back in twenty eighteen for his local club. I believe it was in custody. I didn't realize I thought he had completely retired from the game. He's been scoring goals for fun down there and they are so thin at the youth ranks. And we've seen this, the seventeen and twenty s over the last few years Costa, Rica's had nothing. So they're bringing back their legendary thirty seven year old target forward says what you call the blah's Perez. Loved one hundred percent. I am the shining light of my national team Central America and center forward that you just can't get rid of. But still scores goals through. I know that's what I'm saying edition, Carlo, costly, you look there. Carlo classy wasn't even playing for his club team. And playing for the national team constantly didn't have a club team. Whereas you couldn't kill that guy. I think I see I consider Carla costly. First and foremost to Houston dynamo, legend, but obvious he scores. He scored a winner to take us through to m Lescot molesters on this team for Costa Rico, and Cisco Allen crews can to Washington Giancarlo Gonzales, and Ronald Matt Tarita their best finished second. Back in two thousand and two. They lost the US but it's a perennial, knockout round team think quarterfinals and like ten straight here. They also lost in the semis to the US last time around in twenty seventeen as the US, Nope. Whaler Nevis to the tunnel novices a big one, because that's like the equalizer. That's the potential rate is goalkeeper in Kaka cap history. Oh, really? Is there is there any question I don't know. Like I hadn't thought about. Like Tim Howard. Brad Friedel, Casey Keller. But they're not killer Navas. All right. How many Champions League first of all, that's don't disrespect time Pineda on this show, another, that's a solid point. Argue it's hard to argue if you look at this, if you look at this custody contine they're so old they have they have so many guy adverse reality. They, they, they have so few guys who are under the age of twenty five and the guys in that twenty five to twenty nine year old age they're they're not. They're not exactly match way. It's it's too hot and Campbell. Those are the two that you're hoping can they take over and carry this next few years for this Allen crews from Cincinnati, maybe we haven't really seen him play his natural positions more of a box to box destroyer, but since he's been using him on the wing. So there are a lot of questions that Costa recap the answer. I think groupie though is probably the easiest group at least the most straightforward. Am I am I often that hater? No. Man. Have you seen how we've been playing? Oh, yeah. Well, there's that by the way, I looked it up twenty eight goals in forty games for San Carlos for our real what? Let's go. We've been having this conversation. Oh, I mean, I'm still doing in come. See me and men's. Corless draw this week. Stuck in the legs. All right. Well, one thing that they're out there is now Costa, Rica gets the host games. Jamaica gets a host games in the storm. And it's the first time we've had that. So this is going. I think that is an awesome way to start a tournament for Costa Rican. National team to be like, we have finally reached this point where we get to start at home. We know how impossible they are at home. Right. That's a given win off the bat. It's probably the toughest environment to play in income calf. And then, from there you get that energy boost to go into the rest of the groups as, as you said, a straightforward group for them. So you're looking at a team that probably safely is in the knockouts and can maybe managed the older players inrease in Borjas in Washington to chine peak, as they move along. Now they will be on Mexico's side of the knockout round bracket. So that's not usually where you wanna be ExCo, generally makes the finals though. They didn't in twenty seventeen group. See the favorite I have here is Jamaica, hundreds might be in that conversation Salvador's here, Chris, how is also in group c molasses for the regular. Boys daring Maddox Alvis Powell Kemar Lawrence, Peterlee, vassal, and Andre Blake, and Leon Bailey is in the team after many years of, let's just call it drama between he his representation and the federation, this is why I think Jamaica are going to be the surprise team of this Gold Cup at home. Went to the last five. Finals finals in two thousand fifteen so, yeah, it'd be the US and Mexico. Okay. Let's all didn't we, we don't we, we haven't been like, even though they've played well in the last two cups fair enough. I'll take the L on that one. Like we don't think of Jamaica in recent over the past decade really as being at the same level as Honduras Costa Rica, Panama, even if felt like they've been passed by all those teams. And I think this is when Jamaica really start to get it back because Andre Blake's match-winner in Kemar Lawrence is a match-winner and leeann Bailey is now a match-winner and attack. They haven't had someone who could do that. And I think right now Michael hector's probably up there, in central midfield as in terms of winning that battle, which what you saw the US they controlled central midfield. And then they have pieces as you said that can win by themselves. Big moments exciting moments by themselves where you don't need a ton of possession. Bills out not really a team that does it with one guy, though. It's not a team where you're like, hey this. Guys going to carry him if he gets goals. Go along way last couple tournaments is just been by committee. Well, there's someone's there's someone who would save Darren his scoring the team's. That's true. That person would be done by the five best tour is on that team are Darren Darren Darren Darren. Fire possible. We gotta talk about Ravel Morrison. This is like a weird one. Right. Is a weird. I forgot. He's on this team revel Moore's and have a tradition of this by Giles Barnes style. Hey, we're gonna put a much bigger process than Giles, but he was ten years ago. He was like, the, the Jordan. Sancho Jaden Sancho, the next Lampert of, of the of the English national team program, sir. Alex Ferguson said fifteen sixteen years old. He's the best prospect, he's ever seen at that age. And he like, I think he like, Freddie, dude him. That sense because the kid was never able to, to live up to the expectations. He's been a complete journeyman. He played out list last year. Now he's in Sweden. I like I'm interested to see if he could come in and be an influential member of this reggae Boyz team. This is why you have love the Gold Cup as little sometimes like it's a little bit Tunisia for me. But it's like this is the best kind of need, right? It's the type of each where rebel morts pops up out of nowhere. We talk about Danny accussed left back for the hunter is Nash or Florent Melinda plays in a game where he's not allowed to all wants minutes. Whatever whatever that works. This is probably the most competitive group, I think where anything might happen. Salvador my pull. Pull result here Kerr sow guy here via results in the nation league. So they have something to prove as well groups should be very, very interesting. Here is also one of those groups like we talk about Guadeloupe Martinique where they can pull players who were born probably not a lot now our born in Netherlands and have like you have players playing at high levels across the world. Pro courteous out, doesn't have the development pipeline for it, but they still have talent can say it's really weird that Kirsch outputs a lot of players into major league baseball. I have no idea baseball. Venezuela, like is it just because of proximity Venezuela. It must be I don't know, Andrew Jones's from their angelsen. Andrew you by the way. Just. Yeah. The greatest defensive player in baseball history. And it's weird. We'll go current sound more on Thursday group d for real though. 'cause I know. Yeah. Now we're gonna go into a group day not going there. I know you like that's more of your. Field trip content would be on the Graham group d is Tuesday. That's when it kicks off US are the favorites here turned onto Bego. Go p- Panama Guyana. Those are the other teams were on, crawls Guyana. I should say. Allergies act will in Robert Robert's pumped out there. Also Emory Welshman's gonna I'm getting, I'm getting updates from the guy unease team their training, promote oh, right now just getting ready shout US. Let's go. Let's go. Okay. I'm jacked up. I think it is their first major international tournament and game is in Minneapolis right in the first one we're talking about the US though, gotta will be sorry, you're going more. This is not the favorites the US are they've won six, there's a few players who played for the Netherlands, or someone that from Guyana. I don't know right now. It's just. Just sixteen out of twenty three players for the US are molesters best finish, obviously, they won in two thousand seventeen six time champions, and they are back to back losers in friendlies. Jamaica and Venezuela. Four nil was accused of scoreline there. And people are going pessimism is coming out. That's what happens with the US fan base right now before we get to. Longer term Gold Cup preview. Let's talk about the game impressions. How'd you feel about it? We all watch it. Together you can hero takes on clubbing country. If you'd like that's before. And after every single US men's national team game at the Gold Cup pre and post game shows on all the molest channel so tune in for those Dave you actually watched correct me. I'm wrong after the fact. So you had the poison in your veins Twitter around and watch the game live. I went and sat out in the sun and watch Roger doll house, or when the VP gold New York City, Mancera block monster block, let everyone knows beach volleyball knows exactly what's going on. And then I went to watch the US game expecting it to be awful after hearing everyone talk about how like sauce some but didn't wanna read everything and watch the highlights 'cause I want to see the game and kind of watched the game was waiting for them to be awful. And realized it was like the seventy fifth minute, and hadn't really happened yet. They gave up three bad goals. They were the only three shots on goal that Venezuela took two of them were probably down to the fact that our long hasn't played in seven weeks and one was. Axed. F- inhaler. Those are terrible. And we are at a point where we can't have that with our national team and on top of the last two years, I could understand the sentiment, but from a pure soccer point of view we were better than we were against Jamaica. We were better in possession. We probably better as a unit in terms of moving, and spacing, and we are still missing probably four starters going into this Gold Cup and probably seven of our best eleven going forward. So I watched that game in there was big moments that we lost. And maybe that alone is enough. And, and I'm okay with believing that, but when you look at the structure, top to bottom, I think it's kind of what you heard from Gregg Berhalter after it wasn't terrible soccer, but it was a bad. Is this where the expectations have gone now? That's what I was gonna say that we lose we were better than our one nil loss to Jamaica where we were atrocious and lost three nil to Venezuela, and it wasn't that bad. Is that really where the expectations are for this program, maybe? And part of that might be the fact that we don't have a team like he's. Putting this together still, and I gave your Klinsmann like two years. So Gregg Berhalter gets four or five months. And for a guy who talk about his tactical ability, and how much he can teach and how much he can do. He's been with some of these players for like three or four days, maybe a week, some of them three or four weeks. So to assume it will be at its best, I think, is tough. And yeah, I guess expectations are what they are this Venezuela team. That's the best group they've ever had going into Copa America where they're not gonna win it, but they're actually going to be competitive, and I think it's kind of okay to say Paul areola isn't ten times better than Jefferson Severino. Because we see that weaken. And we weekend that's not wild to me. I want more for the US. Yes, it's gotten bad. I just think it will take some time. So I'm okay with it taking some time, here's the context on Venezuela Mexico one three one, but also Venezuela finished dead last and coma bowl in World Cup qualifying for twenty eighteen a lot of this group was that group as well, then one in their last six, they went to the finals of the last twenty young Harare guy. Like that. We're just coming through for that team Jefferson, Severino. Twenty two years old. Martinez. Didn't have a starting spot at a club team. This is the best group in terms of Ron ring Cohn. We don't have to have. This is the best Venezuelan group goalkeepers about to be bought by our Lona, like actual Barton win in their last six. They mopped off the field by Mexico. Knock it mopped up to feel by Mexico. Mexico is the better team. But Venezuela had thirty forty minutes stretches where they were that was the most Goto that we does this matter. You're right. I don't really want three nil matter at all in my world where it's like, you know, we're all just beings, trying to find each other and create space. I feel like numbers are just arbitrary. Okay. Okay. So here's the guys that are not with the US right now. Data yellen. John Brooks, Michael Bradley play in this game though he will Christian pulisic didn't play in this game though he will Tyler Adams in playing this game. Again, he will Josie author came on as a sub change the game completely for the US. But again go back to game states down three in Venezuela's. Not gonna push in that moment. Especial jet hurt Timothy with you twenty so those are all guys that you might say would come into this throw Pomme, call in their Paxton palmful. He did well with the we'll talk about them. They lost Ecuador in the quarterfinals of the twenty s here's what Gregg Berhalter had to say afterwards and people are asking him. Hey to the change personnel at the change tactics. He said, quote, we need to be calm you kind of alluded to it. I want to hear what you think. Are we getting sucked in by the drama that kind of has been endemic with this team for a while now throughout the your Clinton years? Certainly in the transition moment, certainly Couva missing the World Cup the coaching search afterwards. Are we overreacting to results when this is a very much or could be trust the process moment in, in a vacuum? You could look at it as a trust the process moment. I do think that Gregg Berhalter very good soccer coach. I think that he showed an ability to figure stuff out with the crew a team that was not super talented. He was able to figure stuff out and get them playing not just good shocker. But winning soccer for most of his tenure there as. In getting them to be more difficult to play against in the centre of midfield. And I think gasman made a good point. I didn't write a single negative thing about your Klinsmann until thirteen months into his tenure. You had to jump that day I did because I had to go back because I was like crushing Clinton five minutes or five months into and I was not. And you know what it came after a loss to Jamaica in World Cup qualifying so loss to Jamaica in a friendly stinks it was, it was terrible, the loss to Venezuela, not as bad, but still jibbidy, terrible, and dispiriting. But he like he any coach in this point in the cycle coming from where we come from has to, has to get at least one tournament where you give them the benefit of the doubt. That's the in the vacuum. The frustrating part is the bigger picture. Like why aren't we doing this last year? Last year was the time to try the Janke and potentially groundbreaking new system. Like we missed the we missed the World Cup. We should've had a coach in twenty eighteen who would have been trying all this stuff, so that we would have been closer to the finished product in twenty nineteen so we could have started taking real steps forward, instead of feeling it feels right now, like we're still at rock-bottom we hit it with Couva and we're still fricking there, and it's that's really, really tough. And then on top of that. Our biggest issue Aaron long was part of it. He had miserable game miserable half. But our, our biggest issue is, we don't get pressure to the ball in central midfield. We don't it's, it's it looks broken. And we have it's that being our problem and Tyler Adams being a very, obviously a one man solution. But it looks like we're not going to play him in central midfield, and I've written. And I've said on this show and tweeted like I get why Gregg Berhalter doing this because we have Bradley as the six conducting games in Adams sliding inside. And then you have to eight tens in front of them. It creates this these types of angles and all that. And all so good on paper. But if we can't win the ball going to lose every game in the modern game of soccer. If you can't win the ball in central midfield. You lose we saw it with the twenties against Ecuador, and we've seen it two games in a row with the US national team so system in a vacuum miss the World Cup. This should have been done in two thousand eighteen personnel personnel. We have to get the personnel, right? How do you manage Tyler Adams then? How do you management is tournament play to game since the end of March? He's being out without a doctor injury. He still not with the team. He might have joined today but he wasn't with the team for this game. You can't just throw him in probably at this point. But you need him. Yeah. Now it's tough. And you gotta remember he went through a long spell. I mean he's a young guy, but he went through a long spell of playing with his MLS. AM now just coming in with the national team. That's also a new thing playing international football for him as a new added matches to his schedule. Then goes to the Buddha's Lita steps. Right. In dozen credible had incredible season. But now nursing something. So he's not gonna play right away. I think they're even basically said he's not gonna play this is his only brick basically is right he'll be straight back in with. Why ticket will be another long season. And it'll be Roca qualifying. I mean, this is their only opportunity arrest them. So I get it. Yeah. He's a singular talent for us. And I think as far as getting pressure in the middle of midfield agree with you. I think he belongs in the center of the park. And I think when you look at the strength of the roster overall are the weaknesses of it. I think Nick Lima's done a good job at right back. I think he can play that position that hybrid role. He's proven that now he looks like a guy that can compete in that first team which would allow Tyler Adams to play in the middle of the pitch. And then he makes Michael Michael up to the eight at that point. Right. Like if you have if you have Tyler Adams at the six, you push Michael up, Mike. Oh Bradley's played as an eight before he played his this year for Toronto against the union in the second game of the year. He scored two goals. I still keep Bradley at the six allow Tyler just a little bit in front of him to kind of go and do where he wants to go. And then that also allows Christian pulisic to move out to the right wing, where I think is his best spot on the pitch. So I think this one shift might make a couple other places better in midfield. But he's listed as defender. So is what's the what's the prediction here? Is there a time at the end of the tournament or in the group stage or whatever happens when Greg were halter says, you know what I set this up for Tyler Adams via right back to play this hybrid role? But you know what? We gotta go back to him and central does that happen, or does he stay dogmatic. No. It depends on the results. But I think his idea is has to build something from the ground up. He doesn't have a lot of time to do it, and he's invested a lot of his time in this. So the way the team is structured, the way, the players have learned how to play together because none of these guys have played together before because it's not like a coherent group that we've had in the past is. Set up that way. So if he's getting results through this tournament with it set up that way. And he genuine believes that at the international level my advantages that Tyler Adams can do things that no one else can do. And therefore when you look at two teams and it's fifty fifty get a little extra weight on my side because of the way Tyler Adams place here that I think he's going to stick with it for the next three weeks. If it works if it doesn't it becomes a question, Mark of how dog Matic. Are you to this idea where you have no experience? It's not like he was seventeen international coach was like this is how the international game is this was Gregg Berhalter being a good club coach looking at his talent with the national team and saying, I think that this will give you the best vantage, but he's still only been in this job for five months. So the question becomes, if it doesn't work. How locked in is he to this one idea because it's okay to say I was wrong on that one. But we have ten other ideas that we're going to run through and go for. And I make one point here we have seen this system with Tyler Adams, just once so far the game against Ecuador. And it did work. We absolutely smothered Ecuador. They couldn't do anything against us defensively. So as much as men these last two games were brutal. And they don't mean nothing. And I thought your take was generous, David. We do have one positive data point. That is suggests that Berhalter's really onto something that said, I think the way that he's getting to this system is sort of. Aspect words in that you get the basics down. I play a four three play a standard. Four three three you can be completely possession heavy doing that. You can you move the game around, you could be inventive. And then, once you have that down where you can just plug and play almost the entire pool then start doing the funky stuff. Don't do the funky stuff, right? Off the think it's that complicated that of a system when you when you really look at it. I mean these players can understand things pretty quickly. So for the right back to tuck in spends one week in Portugal and suddenly, he's I don't I don't see the mistakes for making as players overthinking things, or, or not understanding their positional sense or awareness on the pitch to me, the problem really is personnel. We don't have the same depth as a Mexico. We don't have the same depth because of this old generation, that's kind of been pushed aside, where we can play an all hundred but Toyota and a match like this or bring, in a Dax McCarty or some of these guys. They've kind of been set aside, for now at least so now it's been tested a little bit. But I think things do change where a Tyler Adams can figure out what that hybrid, right? Back position is we've seen Nick Lima already figure it out. You can see how Christian role Dan plays that a little bit more advanced role in front. I think Tyler Adams could fit really well into that space. I just don't think it's that hard to understand for these guys under a short amount of time. So the one thing I would say on this, it's not just personal. I think right now there's an issue with mentality in terms of any talk about getting coastal, just like winning your duels, and winning your battles, and having any level of energy to the way you play. And I don't know if that goes down to the talent that exists that doesn't have that or in terms of maybe just the way the messages coming through, but Tyler Adams will bring that. And I think if he brings that it'll be infectious. So whatever position he's playing he's going to be a huge addition to this team. I think Michael Bradley is going to be that as well. So you start to see now Josie too, when he came Joe Dwayne. Homes. It's why Dwayne homes like Duane homes might not be a good soccer player. We don't know we haven't seen him do actual that many soccer things in his US national team appearances so far, but he's played with energy and that has changed the game for the better for the US Christian. We barely mentioned his name as well. Sepah main for Georgie, Maha kitchen. Jamaica gain these are going to be a little different. Yeah. But hey, what time I hyperventilate? This is the US national holistic. It's nice because he actually had a decent run to close out the year in the league a hasn't been in the US camper. He's been playing serious minutes. I mean obviously don't really been in, in a year and a half, which goes to the twenty thousand thing, by the way what's best position in the international game. I don't know maybe the last thirteen months or twenty months, whatever it was would have been a good time to find that out. We will find out come Tuesday with the us national team two more shows until then we'll be talking about this a lot more. We are efforting to get Gregg Berhalter on the show. We'll let you know if that happens quickly talk you twenties. They lost Ecuador in the World Cup. The quarterfinals that you twenty third straight tournament. And the quarterfinals we've talked about that talking about personnel which of these players could conceivably in the near term impact the senior men's national team. Timothy way is a given. That's an easy, one can't take away the givens because there's not that many givens. Well he's giving. So we're making put them on the wing. He he probably be a starter for this go Cup team on the win. We arguably a starter. I think so I mean just in terms of attacking ability in a little bit creativity in that I don't wanna say cocking, but, like arrogance to, like, yeah. I'm going to beat this guy. I'm gonna make something happen, right here way. I think Pomme, call would be an upgrade in one of those two Berhalter calls dual tens they're more like eights, but I think putting him in either of those spots, because we need somebody in central midfield who wins the ball, whether it's at the six or either the eights, and he does that and like, okay put, you know, if you have Adams at right back you put him there and you have Bradley as a six, then you have McKinney and Pomerol as. Like that's pretty tough to play through actually. So I think he would be there and then the ones I'm hoping for I was about to say, we've said, everyone named one Doyle's about the name the no. No, no. The ones I'm Chris Gloucester. Looked really good. It's a position need left about it. Right. I don't think he's ceiling super high. I don't think he's like. Yeah. Solid left back, and he's smart. He was able to figure stuff out as the games went along and his attorney went along, which was really good. And we really need ritual desma hit. We really, really need. Richie desma hit because he's a true sort of central number ten who's not a great defender from that position. But he's not a defensive liability either. And you could put him there and still have a midfield. It's really balanced and tough to play against. Plus, you get that little bit of magic that I don't think like call or jet or mckennie would bring to that spot. And then that allows you to move politic out to the wing. So he's on the books PSV. They spent a lot of money on him already. They basically have to play him this year. If he breaks through it changes a lot for the US national team TVD's here. But we shall see the US open, of course on. Tuesday in the Gold Cup. Let's talk quickly about him last bow down to that man ill Seno. What can't this do cap him? You can't play ninety minutes probably put in thirty minutes. He will absolutely wreck your team. The rebels in Philly played, one of the most entertaining, just helter skelter games of the season three to win for the union after being too down home, their second MLS on points, their second on goal differential, and seniors clearly a legend. Yeah. Yeah. Goals, five assists in fourteen games. He started four of them. That's four goals and five assists in five hundred fifty minutes up down left, right left dry air. He's just a joy when I play fief and I just hit all the buttons at once. Wow. It's like don't over Meg and on, like the back of the no actually at his best when two guys are trying to defend them. It's, it's more than them all. I'll show there and then I'm through the Phillies union there on thirty one points, their second overall in the standings. I in the east they have the second best goal differential in the league. They have the second most goal. Scored also we're down to zero home down to zero in three multiple had a slump earlier in the like in, in may. And it looked like they were coming back down to earth. And they closed out this first after the season with two pretty big building. Too much, though. We want union fans stay hungry right now hungry. But you watch this game Santos, and she bilko you're getting zero not saying there's euros, but like in this game they didn't give you anything. Right. And they'll senior comes off the bench and gives you someone else has to do it. Sometime the Rapids are giving you everything. Yes. Five games. No losses after so many games and all the losses, congratulate lawless Boubacar. Did you see the video of him in the stands whooping? Needed after just months of negativity weighing them down. Congratulations the rapid. Congratulations. I guess, till see. It's now fischel. They're sending Andre Horta back to Portugal, that was a big money experiment, that absolutely did not work. And we just put into context for moment. L AFC are on pace to be the best team in Major League Soccer and they have a DP spot that literally didn't work. Yeah. That's how good they're Rosser composition is on this. Now, does that mean they can get way better, if they go out and get like a legit DP? It's gonna be interesting to see which direction they go because I don't think they're gonna go for a Vela style in his prime DP. I think they're gonna go for another Diego Rossi, which would do, which would be interesting was weaned. We have to rethink getting players from the Portuguese league. Like if you get like Benfica or a port though, starter. Okay. But if you look at the vast majority of these guys, Pedro Santos. Belo Marcello has been poor jersey jersey has been good came to you took them two years to be to be pretty good. There's another, I'm blanking joie Pedro, the, the LA galaxy paid I think mill and a half I row Pedro. And he's six choice center midfielder, but on a million and a half time. Len came from the Portuguese league. So if you're gonna find head-knocking centrebacks, and we're good to go at the one day. I went to I was at LAF's e as part of the travels one day, I went he was probably the best player at training or Thomas. Yeah. I was like, who is this guy? But he's not getting on the pitch in front of k and, and a twist. It's just not happening in blessing blessing killed him blessing just kill them because blessings ability to cover ground in key that press Horta was never gonna do anything. So some action in the open Cup this week. They enter in the fourth round games on Tuesday and Wednesday ESPN plus is your home. We'll talk about those more on Thursday once the result hall a couple of this. Yeah. I've got red bull's revs at Montclair state, university, pack, the house, baby. And then I've got Louisville verse FC Cincinnati river. Add you rhyme. Deriving back. Those are my favorite US open Cup games. When it's MLS team versus kind of like a hungry US and Jose, Sacramento rivalry like in US L to did not like each other. So that not transfers the Florida soccer soldiers Valentine Sabella by the wayside with show. I didn't realize he's the son of Endre Savell of the manager of the Argentine twenty fourteen while Cup final who's got a galaxy brain solution to the professional pathway to four to soccer soldiers. Let's get the mail bag here. We don't have much time. Well, so do you want to complain more about the national team? No, go Jeff in Tucson says Andrew desire for table decoration as a simple issue. Each host a penknife and whenever baron tease issued. It needs to be hand carved into the table along the various annual player wards, which everyone seems to forget about extra bonus carbon favorite band names. Stick gum. Under the table. Definitely Steve manages does never going to allow that. And I would never sit this close the door. With a pen knife. Trying to trying to go to jail here. The scf site was plastic. So we tolerate it. Shakers away. We'd be Doyle must brought it out for the US. Oh, good idea. Actually that would have been at least from San Francisco says longtime listener first-time emailer shadow. At least I don't know if you saw power rankings, but they might quakes listed as twenty really nineteen teams better than us at this point, is how many dishes are we away from being taken, as a serious contender PS? We gotta get Susannah, quake sticker for her laptop. Where's the where's the quake set? I think I had them around the eighth tenth. We the way that we do power rankings. Here's like the whole staff, does their twenty four and then sent to our good friend leash. And she compiles everything in the blurbs and inputs them out. So it is a group effort. Peons that wasn't oursel-. That was ESPN ESPN. Am I don't I don't know about. Don't worry about power rankings. You're just on the bottom of the playoff field. I don't worry about him. Click on ours. You go. There you go. David Malva hill, listening to you boys and girls Lewis Laura's interview, Emmys first signing got me wondering about other MLS potential signings. By the way, I did not put in all the emails asking if people wanted Andrew to use Louis, Mars and example for Cam, we because he's like an awful person should bring there was a lot of them. And I just I just show him the goal this. Don't show this. But since one point. Oh, it'd be keeping a sort of wishlist available. Big name players on the global scene. I scratch out some over the years when MLS lands one or as the league changes through my MLS wishlist are quite a few players, such as Rinaldo Suarez that have notably. But then you've got guys who are free agents. Right. So guys who are out of contract. He sent us a list of them. I can read you off a couple. If there are any to like, Daniel Sturridge twenty nine years old. We'll be a free agent. Consol Etling union. Put Sturge on the union. Put levies ru on yet. She routes one river is one Aren, Robin Samir Nausori on your mood. I are snooze allowed him last we allow those really. Yeah, but I saw Bill aid rock rocket one at at training pretty recently but not on the field. You've talked about one Mata in the past. He'll be a free agent. Dean is a free agent. Yep. Brings you go dean to Emma less. He would wreck is going interview. He would he would. Louise, everybody needs a leftback. So, by the way, if you watch Venezuela Rondeau, n-, also a free agent, Venezuelans rally, Artie owns a home in Miami. Let's. That's a can win Jonestown ham, like crazy Tam signing as an expansion. We do Tim Venar to Montreal. Yeah. I'm done his a replacement for Piaggio. Yes. I don't think it works that way. Piet he's leaving you know, but like, you know, he'd had that swag you would love Montreal. Liam messy twenty twenty one guaranteed. All right. That's a good guaranteed in the Miami. Table.

The listen to the Golden State media concept soccer podcast from M L S the world the Premier Li jue covered the latest update the hottest matches at news on the league's top players. It's the Golden State media concept soccer podcasts. Listen now. And welcome to the G S M C soccer podcast. I'm your host, Mark Susan. Of course with me as always is Jeff Mellon off. How you doing? Jeff. I'm doing great. I'm in the mood for pie, though. What about you? No, no. I am not a coffee will do for me. And at this moment in time. But we have a lot to talk about today. We have to talk about of course, Eden hazard. He has made his decision on where he will play next. We'll talk about the ramifications of that decision. We'll talk about Chelsea and there have been full week as they have basically been on both ends of the spectrum in terms of arowar coaster ride this week. We'll talk about the rest of the English Premier League as it is heating up with recent results that have drawn the table closer together. We will talk about. City and Spurs are they back in the race? We'll see how far they are. And where they stand as is. So talk about the COPA del Rey semi final. L classic oh edition, which the first leg will be happening later on today in Barcelona old talked about that we'll also talk about more racial abuse in the English Premier League. It seems like we just cannot shake this problem. Also talk about a new young Portuguese player that United and Real Madrid are tracking very closely, and we'll take a look ahead at next week's Champions League action which will start off the round of sixteen. We have four games happening next week. So eight teams involved in those four matchups and then a couple high pri- profile soccer players superstars in the world of soccer that celebrated birthday this week on the same day actually is. Crazy when we break it down. But let's jump right into it. Eat how hard I try to jump into it. And I hit the screen. Yeah. Don't don't do anything. US do us. Okay. Eden hazard Eden hazard. He has been under the speculation for this entire season. At least this season. I would say it has gone even further than that. He had been a transfer target for Real Madrid last year. We heard the rumors at now as they heat up around the transfer window, which has just ended. We we see now that he has made a decision. He has expressed that he has told Chelsea what he wants to do for his future and that decision is going to Real Madrid. Well, we don't know. Well, yeah, we actually do not know officially he is only stated it sounds like that's what it's going to go down to though it has not been officially revealed, but he has told media that. Chelsea no his plans for next year and his desire. So it sounds like yes that he has made a decision to good around Madrid. Because if he's I guess if his decision was to stay he probably would just say, I'm saying straightforward, very simple. But the response from Chelsea is they also are putting his transfer that I think they were looking at last time I tried to was like two hundred million pounds, which is holy mol-. That would have been the largest share transfer in history that way that actually went down or no name. Our name was more than that. At least name r. There might be one or two others. But so it'd be a commuter league history. Then in theory is that was that was a neymar went to PS g does that the chats chance to give kiss gy from Barcelona so possibly in Premier League history. Yeah. Otherwise like for per American audience. I believe that's one hundred thirty million from not mistaken. Yes. Something like that. And that's just talk to them. That's just to have discussed that is to secure him. He would would agree to a new contract. Of course. Right. But yeah, no. It's it would be quite a splash. And yeah, we know Real Madrid. They are club that they don't like to be where they're at right now for very long, you know, they don't like to be on the outside looking in. I guess you could say our team that is to non Mus with winning and championships. And they want to continue that then after losing Rinaldo, they'll need all the help. They can get and hazard could be a huge boost to that going back to where they need to be or want to be at least. Right. So you know, they are still in Champions League. And this moment in time. And but it looks like it looks like they're pretty much done in terms of the Spanish league in winning the league zehr sitting at eight points behind Barscelona for first place. They are still in the COPA del Rey. And we'll talk about that later on. But you know, it is it is something that looks like Real Madrid is gone. Going to make some major major changes of summer. And it sounds like they were going to build their new team their new proof team around Eden house art, so. And since the thing is with hazard. He's been like the face Chelsea for the last seven years since he went on them and twenty twelve and he is still like considered one of the greatest he's not the greatest, but the best one the best soccer players in the world. So this is a huge loss for Chelsea. If there's actually does go down when it comes down to the final if this transfer does happen. So this is a good for Madrid bad for Chelsea type of scenario. If you asked me that is true. However, if they do get two hundred million for you didn't has oh, it would look pretty good for them. They would be able to replace them with a few players. They already signed Pula sich for about fifty eight million. It sounds like this summer. So there you have a player coming in. They'd be able to use that two hundred maybe get another two or three exceptional players. So you know, it all depends on what Chelsea's plans are in terms of how will they replace Eden hazard. Now. Ultimately for me, if I'm Chelsea and eating house are wants to leave. I sell them. I for sure sell them. I get that big fee and then move on. And then rebuild the club that way Chelsea does have other Chelsea would be back in still in contention for next year Premier League. If that does happen. I don't I don't see them dropping very far down to be honest with you if just losing hazard because like you said they can afford a lot of other key players to their team. And they would just be maybe in the same position there. Maybe higher up who knows but they will still be in contention. For chelsea. You know, they're they're focused is at this point the focus has to be making it to the Champions League next year. And that means finishing in the top four which. They are fourth right now. They sit in fourth at fifty points. However, Manchester in arsenal. Manchester United that is an arsenal sit right behind them at forty eight and forty seven points respectively. So for Chelsea their whole thing is they must finish the season in the top four. They must finish the season strong if they don't finish season strong, if they finish outside of the top four and remember Manchester United has been streaking. They have not lost under their new manager if Chelsea cannot maintain their top four. That would be a huge issue. They cannot get back cherries because we know they're in the Europa league this year, and they they are club. That it's Champions League. If you don't make Champions League, it's a terrible next season because that's the kind of club. Chelsea is there one of the top six and only four make it unfortunately from England so. Yeah, they had a very eventful week. And I think we need to talk about that in particular. Chelsea comes off a four nil loss to born myth of all teams a shocking shocking result. One of the worst results in the history of the club to lose four nothing all four goals scored on in the second half. And it was a terrible performance. The players. They crumbled. I mean for lack of a better term. They just it wasn't barreling. They got hit on morality, and they crumbled. They did not respond. I mean, just losing four nothing like one nothing. There was more likely in the second half. And then they just kind of collapsed after that first goal. He just got extremely out of hand may just bad to worse. And then it was just like just got ugly. And this coming off a two weeks prior losing arsenal to nil. Losing Tottenham in the first leg of the folk up. Now, they did come back and win and penalties. So a very eventful week for Chelsea is they advanced to the final of the care about Cup the F L Cup, and then they turn around, and they get blasted by born with and a lot of people were wondering if their coach would be on the chopping block after when you lose a game. Like that a lot of questions are asked, but they come back and they win five nil at Huddersfield which answered a lot of questions. It was console. He means first goal for the club. He scored twice. In fact, hazard added to himself and five nothing is a very good way to come back in to. Put away I guess that that game against born. With is a good way to just erase it from Emory. However, probably the biggest turnaround and you've seen from one game to another. I've been bloated. It is crazy to have a nine goal difference. Right. Lose four nil. One five nil. Like that is crazy. Yeah. It's it's humongous change foreshore. However, Manchester City. Is the next opponent for Chelsea? And it's a way Manchester City this weekend away for Chelsea that is about as tough of a game as they're going to get for for the foreseeable future. However, jeff. There is no reprieve here. They play Manchester City, then they play the first lady of their round of thirty two Europa league against malmo's FF, which is a team from Sweden a Nissan team that they should be able to take care of. But they go from Manchester City to Manchester United in back to back weeks. That is pretty rough extremely rough born lane unfair. And then they play Mel Mauguin and the second lake, but then they play Manchester City in the Cup final. So they put Manchester City twice in two weeks. And then they played Tottenham at the end of the month. So this month for Chelsea, man. It will sink them or will project them into Champions League spot next year? I really feel this way they must get a result against Manchester. United Manchester City, obviously, nobody's really expecting them to win that game. But Manchester City is on a tear. Right. They actually my end up winning the Premier League for all. We don't I'll be -solutely. So it is imperative that Chelsea has a good month of February. And it started off great with that big win against Huddersfield hunters sold is by far the weakest team they will play this month. So it will take a number of good results in a number of things to go their way this month, obviously, the distraction Eden hazard if it is true that he is set to go to Real Madrid. If he if it is true that he has an informed the club that he wants to leave. This is a time of year where these things can build up if the fans get wind to him wanting to leave they can turn on him. A little bit couple bad performances at home can really bring out the worst in people. It can bring out a lot of tension and a lot of frustration. So we have to be on the lookout for Chelsea's fans this month is they respond to eat in hazard. And again, the decision is kept quiet. But people run wild speculation. We've already seen journalists speculate on that he will be a Real Madrid player that he has informed the club that he wants a move to Madrid in the summer. So we will see. Yeah. And Chelsea fans finding that out on Twitter by they hear about these rumors as well. There have been not nice things to say about him. There's been I've seen some nice tweets where someone's like, I'm happy for him. I want him the best for me and he wants to win Champions League. Thank you for your time here like guy kind of stuff, and there's also like he'll never be successful. He's a scrub and all these hateful things. I'm being very let's see. How do I say this? I'm being very. PG about it. Because I'm not gonna say what actual words were used because I saw some line of salt. Lot of curse words. They're definitely. Yeah. And fans are going to be it's like, a, you know, they're going to be there. It's like the what is it the five levels of grief is that what it's called or it's like the. The shock. And then, you know, I'm actually look that up. I know exactly what you're talking about you denial denial isolation anger which bargaining depression. Acceptance acceptance. Yes. So it's going to be some people are already attic sentence in some people are only at anger, so. Yeah. But anyways, we'll go to short break. And then when we come back, I'm gonna tell you about the latest in the in the English Premier League is. You know, this league is far from over. There's a lot more drama left to happen. We've already seen quite a bit wall. So talked about the COPA del Rey. Semi-final classical editions and other things going on.

We probably are gonna do. Yeah. We start that cricket podcasts. Soon right, Idaho. Not. No nothing against creek about cricket. I know legitimately nothing about cricket. And it seems like that sport where time stands completely still. Uh-huh. And you will never get those three days back. So we gotta talk about how tight this races for the English Premier League. And I will say. Sort of a rant. I guess that. I'm losing time doing. To like hold you back. No, no. It won't be that bad. A lot of pundits. A lot of analysts have been saying over. The course of the last month that Liverpool's lead is in surmountable that it was obviously we're going to win the league. And I kept saying there's way too many games. If there's way too many games left. You can't just say halfway through the season that it's over when there's only two or three games that separate these teams. There's just way too much what we know about the English Premier League. Is that any day? A team is a tough team to beat. It. Doesn't matter what they are in the standings. It doesn't matter who they played last. We saw Chelsea lose four nothing. Then they win five nil. We saw we've seen Newcastle. United beat Manchester City, recently like we've seen all types of results. And this is the one league where it's so hard to predict week to week in liver. Pool they draw West Ham. One one end matchday twenty five in the English from early with thirteen left to go. And now the lead is three points. The lead is three points. Liverpool has a three point advantage over Manchester City last year's champions only a five point advantage over Tottenham Hotspur, then you see a little bit of a gap between three and four. That's where Chelsea sit in fourth at fifty points. So seven points behind third twelve behind. I I think it's safe to say only the top three are able to win the league at this point. But still we don't know who's going to win out of those top three Tottenham has injury problems. That cannot be understated. However, they've been squeaking by they've been getting the results and three points or three points. It doesn't matter how good or how ugly. They are three points is all that matters. Manchester City plays today against Everton with they wind. They will have drawn even with Liverpool. Now, they will have one game in one game. Played more than Liverpool so Liverpool. We'll have a game in hand. But still. That's how close this league is what are your thoughts? So far. I totally agree. Like, I understand what you're saying in. The fact that Liverpool every I mean, I was kind of saying like Liverpool's probably gonna take the premier title. And of course, I was wrong because I'm never right with my predictions. Usually. I mean, it doesn't mean that they won't. But other people were saying this was a done deal is insurmountable. Yeah. It was like, well, it seemed to be it felt like that way. Because well there are playing but Manchester City is not a team to sleep on. Of course, be a slut get like you said last year they won the title. And you're right. There are only three points behind their playing Everton and non very good team. That's probably they're probably gonna win against. And honestly, I can see when this gets tied. It's even though there. One game extra then Liverpool. It's going to be very interesting to see how Liverpool response the fact there if they do end up being tied how they're going to respond to it because their next game against born. With like, we were like you. You're saying also and that game off game that is a tough game. But it is a game. They can win and bananas. Shitty is also having their cut out for them either either because they're facing Chelsea regardless. That's still a good team. So they're both playing some relatively tough teams when it comes down to it and Liverpool sneezes and know how to respond to the fact that if Manchester City is ended up tied with them at the end of today. It's all about how you finish. Like every time. We say that such redundant thing for me. But it's how you finish in this in any sport. Really? So the fact of the matter is they were pulled deans to erase this tie. They had to West Ham and just come in beep or myth. Born muth. Speaking of teams have had incredibly weird results they beat Chelsea four nil. And then they lose the Cardiff City to nil like what is up with winning Gyda shutting somebody out and then you getting shutout. Yeah. And at opposite ends of the table. You know, it's it's that's what this league is though, and that just that adds more credence to the point that this league is too hard to predict. Now, we can say Manchester City's probably. It is the most competitive league for we could say mentions the city will be Everton today. But everton. I don't know. Maybe they win like it wouldn't shock me. It really wouldn't make remember Manchester City. Just lost a Newcastle. United any like, that's the beauty of sports. Right. Any team go in at any time. It's not like it's not it's not predictable. It's not always predictable. You know? So like if action has plenty of what class players on their team. But if Everton will manage to save just has more talent, exactly. But if Everton does win this does Liverpool like to breathe a little bit. Or do. They. I'm saying do they do they play even harder to because Everton over poor huge rivals. So it would be nice to see their rival help them out. So if your little pool in Manchester, he loses do you do you still like say we got to win every single game this way, if you're most Sala from Liverpool you walk across the street to the Everton stadium because they literally are about half a mile apart from each there's a lot of stadiums. That aren't there you walk across the street. You maybe put on a wig or something you put on a blue shirt, and you go helped Everton win, you know? So you wait as fan or as a player you sneak onto the pitch as a player look Mosa law. He's known for having his curly hair. His curly flowing hair. Maybe you drink on blue or maybe put on like, a blonde wig or something like that. No does use a hair strain. He should be fine. And then and then you go you go put on the Everton shirt. I know that's blasphemy you change your name and the new put it on. And then you go help them win. Wow. That just so if Everton does win in a mysterious blonde player comes in scores. Two goals for them. There's I'm going to have some serious questions for you. Yeah. Instead of Mosul off his name is like to I'm Mike salad or something. Like, Mike, Sal. That's the name come up with Mike salad. Yeah. Have about like Salah Mo's like backwards. Do it the way or like or? Mola? Moses. Jesus moses. Let's just go there. That's what I would do though, you know. But she no you're saying obviously back to reality Otago's, gravity back to reality here this. This thing is wide open. Man. There's thirteen games left like they've played twenty five N t of there's plenty of soccer to play ninety nine. There are thirty nine points. Available thirteen times three thirty nine points available. Now, you quick math. You just never know. You just never know. And what I like those. I think one thing is for sure this is going to come down to it. Because there are three teams. It's not just a two team razors. Three. Right. I think Taunton will fall off a truly do just because really. Yeah. They're I mean, they're injured like they're getting their losing. Losing. Kane is a big factor. Deli alley. They've lost dilly-dally. Like, look they're getting by man, they won their asking the one one nil against Todd Oregon a new castle they won in injury-time against what for like they're squeaking by now. They're getting results. Like, I mentioned earlier. It's a matter wins win three points. They play they play LeicesteR this weekend. That's going to be a tough game. That's a big game for or to because Lester needs a win. They they're under the gun themselves, and I could see Lester getting resulted as they narrowly lost to Manchester United this last weekend. Taught him also plays Dortmund in the Champions League. They also played Chelsea at the end of this month. So I do think it's going to be tougher. Spurs to stay on track with Liverpool in the city, but it's not out of the blue. It's not out of the realm of possibility that they do maintain hold water and then get their stars back. Yeah. Absolutely. There's still a lot of possibility left. They are holding on without Cain, which we've talked about in previous podcast saga party that that is the huge the biggest blow to them by far as losing their best player and right now, they're yeah. Like, you said three points three points. I you said before. So if they can hold on and beat LeicesteR I can. See them holding like I'm not taking them completely out of the question yet for out of the out of the Premier League yet. I'm still holding my ground with them. But I understand what you mean by they could drop at any moment because they're on crutches at the moment in if you will I see what you did there. One thing. I did want to mention his Everton. They got embarrassed three one by wolves at the weekend. They were at home. The wolves are hot right now man, they have won three in a row, they they are on fire. Flaming wilder actually like solidly in seven three now to their four points ahead of eight which there was like a nice little cluster of teams there. And they've they've, you know, I don't want to make another pun, but they've kind of gotten away from the pack a little bit. I this is the pun pod. Now, I know the Wolfpack don't turn your back there and pack so the wolves after all, but it's still incredibly tight between seven and twelve. I mean, you're looking at between eight and twelve in particular what for two eight and West Ham. It twelve there's only two points separating all those teams in adult. That's basically one game. That is one game. What am I saying? That is one so forever. Ten it isn't credibly tough to go play city. But is a big game for them. Maybe they get him. Get him in the weird mid week fixture that maybe it's. But I think sitting knows the importance of this game is Mullah more important than it's just should be in circumstances where they could be tied for first at a shot premier, but they lose they might be in trouble and Liverpool might win their next game. And now they're down six points instead of tied. It could be a three point swing. So I think Manchester City is taking this little more seriously than maybe they would have in the past the speaking of taking it seriously Real Madrid and Barcelona they're going to kick off the first leg of their L classic oh slash COPA. Del Rey semi final today in Barcelona at the Camp Nou stadium. How big of a game is this for Real Madrid? Well, into put an American terms this basically like Michigan versus Ohio State the big game type of feel. It's it's an event basically and looking at that Real Madrid. This is the first classical without Rinaldo, or is it was like the second. Earlier they played earlier this year. That's right. So this is a big game end messy is also in the lineup. I saw recently. So that is a big factor in this for me. So but Real Madrid to make a statement they need this win. But I don't think they're getting it. It will be tough playing on the road in Barcelona. Again, we know that this is like a transitional season for Real Madrid. Is they still haven't I guess? And it will take some time. It's gonna take more than a season to rebuild that team. I mean, obviously losing Rinaldo, but not just that losing seems like they're on. I think they're good progress though, then most people have give them credit for. Yeah. But you know, it's one of those it sounds like it's there. There's a great possibility outing hazard to that team which would benefit them greatly in circumstance, which would help them and like classical for the future. But you also have to look like one of the things in this game. In particular is the Barcelona has if I think they're all healthy if I'm not mistaken. Yes. Yeah. And that's a dangerous Barcelona team. So that's why I'm saying maybe it's not this time. But you know, we will see I'm not I can't rule that Real Madrid at all of these. It's still a Real Madrid club. So, but we'll see. You know, they're not going to win the league. Like bursts loan is gonna win the league. I think that was a given. No. And I think that if they can if they can win this, home and home matchup, COPA del Rey. Semi-final? I think that could be somewhat of a silver lining in this season for alva- drid. It will be incredibly take something positive away from it. Yeah. And they are for sure the dog in the in this match up. But if you do come away with the COPA del Rey trophy. I guess alleviates the pain a little bit of losing maybe having sees elation trophy. Yeah. So it will be and if you'd be Barcelona to get there that is a huge boost in like just when you come down to it like like you say you're trying to like get over. The fact you can't wear your league. But you hey, you beat your ultimate rival to get to win win a Cup in general. So there's something you can say, hey, that was a good moment for our club this year. But anyways, I think we should probably take a break and then come back and talk about a new wonder kid new Portuguese wonder kid, a couple of major clubs are looking at also more racial abuse in the English from early and of course, taking a look at the Champions League fixtures upcoming, but I I wanna talk to you about investing because when investing planning for your time, and it's always best to get device for the experts bestselling author.

We we spoke about English from early and eat in house art and where his whereabouts Nick season talked about how the league is heating up in general as Liverpool have drawn closer to the rest of the pack. We talked about city and Spurs still being in it. We also looked ahead at the COPA. Del rey. Semi-final L classical edition Real Madrid and Barcelona now I want to go back to the English Premier League for a moment as. Talk about an issue that we've talked about before. And doesn't seem to go away keeps it's really bothering me. It's still something that happens all too often in this game in this world in life in general, and it's super upsetting but West Ham fans accused of abuse towards most Salah, racial abuse. Of course. And if there's actually a video evidence of it because there was a guy video where the guys were when he was doing those. So yes, lose it. A quarter kicker free kick. I couldn't tell actually in the honestly wasn't even focused on that. Yeah. It was it was it was a kick by Salah by himself. And there was a lot of curse words like calling him a wussy. But the other version of what see if you will. But there was also basically. His mocking is religion. Which is pretty offensive way. I'm not going to repeat, of course, what they were saying. But it was it was crossing a line. The other just making fun of the fact that most of the laws the Muslim, and it's disgraceful. It really is. And just if even if he wasn't Muslim, and they make fun of anything about him religion or not it's just wrong and how they were doing it. They're making fun of something about him. And it just it was wrong. It was wrong on so many levels. Will they I don't know find the person I don't well. Apparently, they're investigating it. And West Ham has been saying like this is so on excess holder. We're going to see if they find them they'd be a lifetime ban and just how unacceptable it was. And how they have zero tolerance for that. But of course, that's going to be their steak. That's going to be their position when it comes down to stuff like that. So it's not a surprise to anyone when they say that kind of thing. Yeah. So. We'll see what happens from it. In terms of punishment terms of identifying the person or people involved. However is just another bad. Look another black Mark on the league. And again, it's not just the England as happens everywhere in Europe, especially in some places more than those in Italy's been a a league where it's happened a lot over the last couple of seasons. But I don't know what they can do. I really don't. It's just I'm so tired of reading about him is so tired of. And it's not because I don't feel like it should be reported. Should obviously be reported. But I'm just tired of people acting in this manner. Drinking too much. There's always, unfortunately, we live in a world with that's always going to be an issue. Like, I don't know. Some people think this is funny. Like, I don't know some people who are like, oh, this is cool. But man, it's just it's drunken behaviour usually. And it's just like kinda shows how people like either want to really get under the skin of certain players, or that's how they really feel. You really don't know. Yes. And idiocy, and it's it's bigoted that it takes away from the game takes away from you know, takes away from West Ham. Having a great game and giving over Paul. You're not talking about their draw to the best team number one team in live in Liverpool. We're talking about their fan base being bigoted and offensive. Right, right. So. I don't know anything more needs to be said. But it is just another problem. It's troubling. It's just it's a troubling situation. Where we have we have to talk about this because it needs to be said how wrong it is. And of course, I think at the end this is London like the Chelsea incident in London the west same incident in London. This is not some remote area. This is a privilege d'etre politician area of England gets diverse. It's not I don't know you think of backwoods somewhere. It's it's the center point basically that the whole the whole area like that's the that's what everyone thinks of. So there's a lot to go on from that. And it's just very disappointing to see this happen again. And again, and this is not just like that not just soccer. This happens in all sports. Unfortunately. Yes. Big time. Moving on as usual Felix. Remember this name because one Felix guys they name that is already garnering a lot of buzz. He is a player that could be on the move to a major club for a lot of money. This kid is a been fica product. In the Portuguese league. He is a Portuguese player. Some are calling him the new Rinaldo, quote, unquote and Manchester United and Real Madrid are tracking this kid. They have been under close watch for him. And it sounds like he will be on the move to a major club. And he knows it. He had some comments saying that he, you know. Thinks it's great. And that he doesn't that? He welcomes that challenge in his goal is to be one of the best. So. He is a player to keep an eye out for I imagined other players will be in on him or some other teams will be in on him to. Yeah. And I honestly kind of feel bad for them. Because the fact he's. The is the next one. Although because that is such a heist like it's veteran, no doubt about it. But that leaves him to so much like he can't make errors. Now. He's so he's such a high spotlight that it's almost unfair. You know what I mean? Yeah. I always feel bad for players. I get go compared to the greatest player of that of their generation. Because of the fact like that is living so much height that sometimes that's impossible to live up to like saying, you're the next Michael Jordan or a singer the next Tom Brady or something of that nature. Like, you're living up to so much height. That one little mistake caulking cost you everything. Yeah. But I I wouldn't excited for my hope he lives up to the hype. But I just hate the fact that that journalists in some media just hype them up to explore oil. You know, it is what it is. Right. It's awesome. But the fact is that this kid has represented Portugal at the national level. He does from his Jalan. I'm. Taking away from that. I just hate the fact that like people just over exaggerate in that, you know, there isn't there isn't a set of the story. And because he's so hyped means he'll get a nice little contract by his next team. Yes. Absolutely. And I hope for the best for them. And of course, there is positive, but when you think of the negative just it's it's a little unfair to the kid, but I hope nothing for the best. He's already like you said he's been part of the Portugal national team all the potential in the world. He along side Rinaldo it the next European championship in next now that would be interesting to see I would love to see that. Speaking of Rinaldo. He just turned thirty four. And his birthday was on February the fifth and was yesterday. And he shares a birthday with another soccer superstar who is superstar. Is it who I think it is? I don't know who you think it is. Is it a guy that's very similar to him in this generation or did a previous generation player? It's somebody who's current currently playing is he in Barcelona. He is not okay. Is he in the Premier League? He is not then I'm out. Rinaldo in neymar share a birth real own? I I knew neymar Heidelberg the huge bash. They he had a are seven years apart. But it still interesting that maybe the top two players in the world. Have the say if you're born in February fifth, and you play soccer, you have a lot of potential, but also I should have known that because name or had a huge birthday part. Carlos teve is who's also a great player in his own way Argentinian legend, he also is born on February fifth fifth fit that might just be a holiday for soccer fans because of the talent that was born on that day, or if you're just board on February fifth and your soccer player, you have potential to be an all time. Great. Yes. So if you're if you're trying to have a kid and you want them play soccer try to make him. If you have a baby on the way aim for February fifth. Exactly your due dates, Henry Ford. No pulling the onto him for another day. I don't know how us specifically aimed for one day. But maybe you could do things. Leading up nine months exactly to February fifth. That's when you start to conceive. There you go. So. Rinaldo neymar in Carlos Davis. That is one heck of a trio to be born on the same day. There's not many times you get three big name celebrities born on like that big on the same day. Let's say a single word. Yeah. Yeah. Same sports. Same kind of legacy. It's just it's insane. Especially name more Rinaldo right now. Because the fact there to like as you said the top two greatest in the world, arguably right now in the most popular right now are probably named Moran Rinaldo. So it's just the what are the odds of that happening in the same type of in the same time. You know what? I mean, the same time these two have birthdays and had the success. They have right now. Yup. Yup. And as we look ahead. Next week. We are back in the Champions League. After a couple moves off. Yeah. Next, Tuesday and Wednesday. We have four games in total two games on each day will kick off February twelfth on Tuesday United Manchester United against the neymar less Paris. Saint germain. Yes, they will play the first leg at Old Trafford in England. You know like we talked about before a couple of months going these fixtures. Got announced when the match ups got announced it looked like Manchester. United was dead in the water. They had a Josie Marino. Still coach they were not playing. Well, PS g was on fire PSU was healthy. Now PS g has no name. Manchester. United hasn't lost in about five weeks. Now. This is a different matchup than we thought. When we first heard it announced, what are your thoughts going into next week for this match. Oh, I'm Levin. It's I love this story lines. I love just the excitement. I cannot wait. It's the Champions League Champions League yet all the hype in the world. It's hopefully a lot of pressure on PS G two. Oh one hundred percent because you have you're missing. Like, we just said the best player in the world on Manchester, really, no pressure because they're men say were written off, Manchester. United was written off a long time ago. Yeah, you you're right. Like they're and they're on our complete role right now. Like, they're probably the hottest team in soccer. Yeah. They're one of them. That's for sure. Lost in since they got new coach that was like what a couple of months ago. It's been about five weeks. So yeah, it's been fills a couple of months. Yeah. So that's a little over a month. The other game next Tuesday on the twelfth is Roma from Italy. They will host Porto from Portugal, that's a pretty open fair based on the odds. It's kind of fifty fifty on where it's gonna go. So we'll be interesting however on Wednesday next Wednesday, February thirteen Tottenham Hotspur, and they'll will be without. Of course, hurricane without dill. Heinous a hurricane and dilly alley. Lists Tottenham Hotspur. They will host Bruce should Dortmund Christian pulisic, and Bruce Dortmund will come in town and see what they can do of Tom them was a favorite. Yeah. Even without their best players. I think they still get some leeway because it's at home. I think we'll be tough game. It will be absolutely. But I think it helps for being at home is currently the German first place team. We will see if they can hold onto that it looks like they should. But no, it's going to be a fun fun match. And then the second match on Wednesdays. I XE from Amsterdam they will be hosting the defending champions Real Madrid. So Ramage it'll start off their second round. Campaign in the round of sixteen going to haul in to face Real Madrid. What are your thoughts about that? Just facing Rama a challenge in itself. That's all I say exa good young team. So be don't be surprised. I mean, I think Real Madrid. Obviously they have the advantage of the experience they have older players. They have players have been there before. But I X men they're very young and exciting team. They could pose some problems. I could see I understand that. It's just it's just a challenge when you're face number steep of a team. Like if you if you can get past the mental part of it. Yeah. I think that I- matches up closer talent wise, then people will give them credit for they'll just see the name. They'll say I o Madrid should just walked through this one. But Topi surprise if it's a little bit closer a little bit. Like you said it's it's going to be a mental game. I provides I access into the game, you know, playing like they're the underdog or thinking that you know, this is Real Madrid. And they ten simple little bit. Maybe it's easy for Real Madrid. But if they can get. Past that mental part. I think they could do some damage. Yeah. Like, but that mental part is not an easy feat. Of course, that's not something you can just rub off or rush off. So, but I think yes, they had the talent to do this. And it's going to be a very interesting to see how this plays out because it's all good as worthy. See how this all plays out in the first five minutes of the game. And how they react to the mystique. Yes. So of course, today, we do have that Everton Manchester City clash. We will see what happens there. I don't know. I think it might also. Be a tough game from inches. Cedeno. We kind of briefly talked about it before. But I do think that Everton on their best day can win for sure. So maybe today's that day. We'll see. Yes, it's going to be very intriguing other than that. We are finished for today.

Soccer podcast from m l. s. the world, the Premier Li, we've got you covered the latest update, the hottest matches news on the league's top players. It's the Golden State media concept, soccer podcast. Listen. Oh, right. Welcome to the GMC soccer podcast. This is brought to you by the GSM see podcast network. And as always, I am your host Jesse top. All right. So I mean story the days, obviously Manchester United. I promise you, I tried not to. I'm not trying to go at United or anything like that, but the way they've been playing seasons been absolutely dreadful and losing three nil Tottenham today doesn't necessarily help. So we'll be talking about that for the first segment. Second segment, we'll get into the other games. We'll talk city time with wolves. Liverpool did while this weekend. We'll be talking about all that talking about the table as after three games who's impressed to hasn't. Third segment, I wanna talk about Real Madrid. They won their first two matches. And this is what really interests me about Madrid and why I like watching them is because they won four one this past weekend, and you got guys like Marcello and Ben's saying that they're still not where they need to be. It's still getting used to playing with our knowledgeable and all that. So we'll talk about that. We'll talk about the fact that this new manager likes to keep Madras and the couple of other guys on the bench. And then for the fourth statement, we will talk about anything else going on in the world of foot. Ball slash soccer. So. We talked last week about Manchester United. They lost the Brian Hove. Albion I believe it was thing was what three one. And my whole thing was my thing is been what exactly do United hope to get out of Marino this season or what is what do they expect to happen this season? This isn't you already tell it's isn't a team who at least will with marina will win the league. I, I'd say this isn't even a top four team as right now. And again, it's early, it's three games in, but they're not even competitive. They're not. And you know, I was fairly surprised watching this game to start out. I thought Tottenham we're going to do well, and at least come away with a draw. And this one. And I thought at least like draw or win. There were to come away with sometime points. And United started off the game, extremely well. I mean, Tottenham had absolutely no answer for United type press and all that. I mean, watching Tottenham try to play the ball out the back with absolutely hilarious because they just they were flustered the entire time and United type press. Almost paid off when you had Lukaku who got impasse who will res, but he missed an empty net. I mean, literally kicked it across the face of the goal. I don't know how he missed it. And that was one where if we caulk wins scoring, that could've changed the momentum of the entire game, but with coconut scoring it that keeps Spurs in the game. So Madge continues on second half gets here and Spurs Tottenham at United like they didn't see what was coming to goals in two minutes. One by hurricane and one by Lucas and Lucas has been an absolute tears start the season. So far for Tottenham last season came into the team. They didn't really get much of an opportunity was more so trying to find his form and fit in with the team this year. Like I said, he's played well scored twice today. Like I said, you gotta go from Harry Kane. So you look at it, fifties minute gets here, Karen should be who has done well, I mean, the dude been on fire since they woke up crosses the ball in from the corner. Harry Kane gets gets on top of it. Hesitant. Go one zero. Then I, like I said, fifty. Second minute gets here. Lucas more scores off of a Christian. Eric's assist. Sanchez unzip coming in for under Harare in the fifty fifth minutes in the fifty eight th minute. Victor Lindelof comes in for an injured Phil Jones, and then you got for any common informatics in the sixty first. Okay, you're down to Yuri how to sub in defensive player for Phil Jones. Why are you bringing in philanthropy? How does Fellini help you get back into the game? As far as scoring goals? He doesn't. So treve coming out. Aria comes in, Danny rose comes out for and Ben Davies comes in. I'm not sure why Ben Davies didn't start this one. I get maybe Platina trying to give rose. Another chance. But. But I mean. Read the point which would be a Ben Davies need to be the regular starters on the outside for top. So I just said, it's to know there. And then game continues on. And then the eighty four th minute gets her and Lucas scores that get makes it three zero. After that, I'm in the game was already over at this point. But after that, that's all she wrote around United and the blues in this one. Like I said, three zero, the match that's courtesy of silver score, United maintain fifty, seven percent of the possession them. Tar game took twenty three shots compared to Taunton hymns nine. Five of them were on target same as Tottenham, but that doesn't mean a thing. Why? Because you didn't put it in the back of the net. As well as his team played starting out, they completely fell apart. Once the second half got here. And I mean, looking at their lineups Lukaku was up top. They play with the back three of under Harare smiling and Phil Jones Valencia on the outside on Luke shot. I'd say maybe about teachers more playing back rather than Harare, Pablo, Fred, in the midfield and then Lagarde planning behind Lukaku. He left rash on the bench. I feel that you probably should have brought him on for Laney. And taught them they're starting. Eleven was Mara Cain Ericsson plane behind alley than belly. Dire plan in the middle. And then back four of trippy I'll for Tong Danny rose and then who go playing keeper. I mean, again, it's the same point. What does the board for Manchester United expect to happen? Keeping Marino around longer. We've already reached the ending of this era, the Marino era in Manchester it hasn't worked in again. I feel like the club and fans have drastically lowered their standards. I think that. It's it's kind of odd seeing that when they bring what Marino's done, they'll bring up a Europa league trophy and all that. That's not Manchester United. They should be a whole lot better than what they are. I mean, the fans, the board, everyone should just demand excellence from the players and whoever's managing him, and that just hasn't been the case at all. And then you get a classic Marino press conference. After I got this quote, pulled from Fox Sports. He said, I one more premise ships alone than the other nineteen manages together three for me to for them, respect, respect, respect. Basically, he feels like he's not getting his fair shake, and he feels like his past accomplishments should. Elevate him a bit. Who cares. What you did before. What are you doing now? Is what the question is. And he's not doing thing. I mean, it seems like he doesn't really connect with the players. The players know connect with him. I've seen some of the blame go to the players. I don't. If it was one player who was struggling than yet blame that player. But when it's multiple coming over to United and under Marino they've gotten worse. That's a managerial problem. Not bringing on rash is a problem, especially when you're two goals down. So I mean, United, the board can continue to allow this to happen. I mean, it doesn't seem like there's really a happy ending in sight here they can do that or you can make the proactive move, get rid of him. I'm all for them bringing on Sadan. Maybe you look at Arsene Wenger possibly Don is a better coach for this new era, but are the way something needs to happen and people have settle the board didn't back Marino as far as the transfer window on all that I don't buy that given renew about PA. Marino brought on Lukaku Marino. Brian Sanchez Marino has had players. I mean, are we just going to act like Alexis Sanchez, a bad player along with PA matych, Fred Lukaku? Like I said. I mean, gimme a break is raw, very good players at one point in their career that as soon as they get United just doesn't happen. I mean, the guy paid one hundred million for Papa paid nearly that from Kaku. He's had money. The spent don't blame the board for the fact that this guy can't get this team together in playing. Well, this is on marina. Not on the players. It's not on the board is on Marino. People gets too infatuated with what he did back then. What's he doing now? This is a results driven game and he's not getting them. So I mean, they can continue to basically lower expectations and lower the standards of Manchester United. Or you could be like a row, Madrid. And. Basically not accept anything less than excellence. That's the way Manchester United need to be in good on Tottenham here for winning this one. Harry can continue to score scorn, August first time ever. I quote Old Trafford also Lucas has been playing well, a lot was made about them not buying any players in the summer transfer window. I thought that was the problem, but so far in their first three games they've done well. I mean, granted, I two teams. They played weren't relatively great, Manchester, United start off season really poor. So we'll see what they look like. Liverpool city, even an arsenal or Chelsea. Chelsea our team who have really surprised. We'll talk about them in the next segment, but either way. I mean, like I said, how much longer can you stick with this? Because it's a problem at this point. So we'll see what ends up happening but United currently. I think thirteenth in the table after three games, only one win, two lost. Not necessarily great is no, it's not. So that's all I got to say about that. We'll wrap it up for here next up. We'll be talking about the other EPL games that went on over the weekend.

All right. Welcome back to the GMC solder podcast. I say we spent talking about mentioned the United and taught them. Now we move on and talk about the other EPL games over the weekend. Smith Chester city the Georgia, not of the EP l.. Actually came away, withdraw this past weekend against wolves. Wolves. I don't know how they did it, but they held their own. I mean, city maintain seventy two percent of the possession for the entire game. Two, seven more shots than them four more shots on target. Only able to come away with one goal in city had to play from behind in this one. They don't do that very often. Willie Bali scoring a goal with an assist from job, Tina in the fifty seven th minute. Then in the sixty ninety, the port scorn a goal assist from goon again and city after that try their hardest, but struggled to put it in the back of the net to take the lead. I mean. Is good. I'll wolves here is a big result. Especially considering that it's wolves. I mean, I'm not trying to disrespect or anything like that, but what do you think Manchester City versus wall? Do you think he's going to win, but what was it? Well, here at home, they're going to their lineup. He meant his up top Heller cost the and yet will Hotta playing in behind him. Dorothy playing on the right with moti, Motael and Neves playing the middle Johnny cash show played on the left, came away, injure it, say Bali, scorn. He played in the back with Connor Cody and the Ryan Bennett repatriate playing keeper here. And I like wolves. This transfer window bringing on a bunch of Portuguese players guys who. I've played together obviously, no. Pretty much how each player what their tendencies are, and even you got raw human is up top who is Mexican national, but played at Benfica the Portuguese style of play. I mean, this is basically Portugal's BT here. Have you look at it. It's it's how Portuguese they had their starting eleven, we'll count. He men is considering he played for Benfica so players, porch, Portuguese connections. So you got three already with cost, and he met his whole who played behind him. Then you got Ruben Nevis, John routine, yo. And the ROY Patricia has one, two, three, four, five, six out of the eleven with Portuguese connections. Five important one being a player who played over in the Portuguese league for Benfica and that's smart because like I said, they all know their style. They all know pretty much what works. What does. And then you look at cities starting eleven, you went with sterling Aguayo in the front three go into Fernandina in Silva, in the middle, and then in the bag had MENDIETA porta company in the car Walker with Edison playing keeper. We're gonna bench. They brought on Mars Gabrielli Seuss. LeRoy saw any left delph stones and ultimately on the bench. There. I mean, like I said, this is a big result here in one where. City aren't at the top anymore. You've got Liverpool Tottenham Chelsea. I'm what I up there in the top four, but out this is just a year where where. How do you say the latest as competitive throughout? I don't wanna see. Like last year was pretty cool. Seeing said he just dominate across the way, but now to see a season where it comes down to the final couple of matches or whatnot. So we'll see out all goes down. But other way said wolves did while the time with Manchester City. One one. Then we had arsenal playing West Ham. Arsenal. Did it start out this match? Well, we're down one zero on the twenty fifth minute yet. Markle not scoring there. You had not show Montreal with an scoring in the thirty th minute assist from Alex won't be played really well to this season to start out. Last year wasn't really, too good. Arsenal fans weren't really bagging him too much. Now. He seemed do step it up. So it's one one after the first half second half comes lock has come in for will be to start the half. Tarare come in for Wendy in the fifty six. And it's two one in the seventieth minute arsenal up due to is what the own goal. And then would you look at that Danny will scores goals. You guys scored in the ninety second minute, which made it three one. Their arsenal did well to come away with the win. I mean, basically dominated the match against West Ham. Started off kinda slow, like I said, but picked it up after they're gonna. They're starting eleven. They went with a bomber Yang up top mega -tarian Ramsey and we'll be playing in behind him. No zero. And this one he was ill. I could tell that too many people were really believe in that. But I mean, what can you do? I guess, says he's ill than can't really plan right here windows in Jacques playing in behind the three Bina Abomey Yang and in the back ballerina Mustafa Socrates and Monreale with Chuck playing go. I'm still not sure why Leno isn't starting. I get that like I actually don't get it. I don't get it. I don't understand why wasn't starting. You figured that they would have started Torah along with in the middle of when doozy, but Emory favorites Chaka and Chagas don't. Well, I guess the last couple of matches. Lacaze it seems like he's kinda developed a roll off the bench after the first three games. I'd like to see him start up top with a bombing at one point. And then you look at West Ham. You started not to veg up top Felipe Anderson behind your Michael. Tony, on the button on the left side, Wilshire in the middle on cards, Carlos Sanchez Robertson. Aw, Gress on the right author. Muscle AKU on the leftback spot is the up in the centerback spot along with Fabian Balbuena and then Ryan Federick plan on the right back spot with Manzke playing keeper there. Cheech retail off the bench will actually come off the bench, came in for a not Vic. Yarmolenka come in and also with Peres. I'm not sure why Pellegrini doesn't start teacher retail for like when he played last season, he did well to score though wasn't much that he played. I just feel like West Ham haven't done what a score goals you pretty much need all the help. You can get up top, but either way arsenal one. Now in three one is over cell and we had never Tim playing those types who to both each losing player with due to a red card. Adam Smith born with and then you had Richarson with a red. They're also forever. Ten Charles did not really great game after the first two of the first two stellar performances yet deal Wolcott sworn for every Michael Keane and then four born myth, your Nathan a key scoring and Joshua kings wearing that. Everton of don't. Well, I think it's good for them to come away with a point here. Born with her, no pushover by any means they've taken two wins out of their first three matches along with the draw. Everton Everton have taken one win. Two draws. I think they done well. I don't necessarily think that ever ten our team who are going to finish top six by any means, but I think they'll be finishing top it for sure. So there is that we move on. You had huntersville town of Cardiff City plan, two zero, zero draw. I mean, that game was about as exciting as watching paint dry on the wall. Let's their city came away with a win against Southampton. I believe there was no Jamie Vardi here. Yeah, no, Jamie Vardi due to his red card in the last match Melinda for Colletti she had not shown to begin his opportunity. I remember watching him at city showed flashes of being a decent striker as a really gotten much of a chance with less there. But I mean, when you got when here you need to take it pretty much swore there. You're at grace corn for LeicesteR along with Harry Maguire scored the game winning goal. Of course, Harry Maguire still on his England forms Gordon the ninety. Second minute often of assist from Mark all Brian. But like I said, I'd like to see Nacho do more. I think he's got a lot of potential. He's got put it all together in order to be successful. Yet Ryan bore transparent for Southampton also there. So I guess when that when to one, we're Liverpool playing Brighton Hove Albion. Liverpool on this one. One new probably should have done better, but nonetheless came with three points. You had most Sala scoring in the twenty third minute. Then like I said, that was the only goal of the match their no changes. Actually, besides Joe Gomez in the back four, Liverpool still one with Alexander Arnold Van Dyke in Robertson about four also Miller all keta in the middle and got saw law for me new in Monday up top. Wound on from that. What I who have played really well to start to season one to one. They beat Crystal Palace. You have Berta Pereira scoring in the fifty third minute, which made a Wednesday, oh, Jose. Hold best scoring seventy. First minute payers don't real well for what for since he's gone there Wilfried Zaha scoring in the seventy eighth minute assists for max Meyer which made it to one and Crystal Palace just fail to get a goal. After that. I mean palace maintain most of the possession fifty seven compared to what I forty three, but what took more shots and had more shots on goal. So good on them winning their deservedly. So Chelsea beat Newcastle to one. In their match hazards Qurna penalty in the seventy six seventy. Sixth minute Joe salutes warning the eighty third minute and deandre Yan than with the own goal in the eighty seventh minute which gave Chelsea the lead and help them went to one. They're gonna added. I mean, Chelsea of them well, they midfield player extremely well to start the season has been not playing well, defensive done right also they Lewis has been kinda so-so but either the way for the most part, the team is known well hazard Murata and patriots playing top kovic Jorgihno and contact playing in the middle. I mean, that's absolutely deadly. Midfield combo right there. Anytime you genial and contact playing or in the middle and the Marcus Alonzo. David Lewis Antonio Ruediger says as public, what playing in the back. I mean, Chelsea team surprise me a bit. I mean, the summer transfer windows in bit. Weird. Plus with environ content allows unsure how well they were gonna do. But other way, I mean, they've looked pretty good so far to start, you had a full. I'm beating Burnley four, two. I to be possible that Burnley kind of ticket step back this season due to all matches. They're going to have to play. I mean, they're going to be in Europe. This season. Alexander meet your bitch scoring two goals for full him, Andre shore last swearing, also one there, and then John Michael Seri scoring for Fulham. Also that Jeff Hendrick scored four Burnley along with James Tarkovsky lug I said full on that one, four, two. And then like I said today, we had Manchester nine Tom playing Tottenham when that win three, nil. Let's take a look at the table. The top four looks like this. Liverpool with nine points Tottenham with nine, Chelsea with nine watt with nine Liverpool. Up top due to goal differential. You got man city in fifth with seven points born with in six, seven, less than seven with six Everton eighth with five points arsenal in ninth with three points. Crystal Palace tent with three points, Fulham in eleven to three points, Brighton and twelve three points. And then you got mentioned to in thirteenth with reports. Wolves in fourteenth was two points. Cardiff City fifteenth with two points Newcastle sixteen to one point Southampton in seventeenth with one point. And then you've got Burnley with only one point in eighteenth place. Huddersfield nineteenth with one point, I expect them to get relegated at West Ham in twentieth with no points of their obviously haven't done well. So that's all I got to say about that next up. We talk in rail Madrid, so stay tuned and I will be right back. Hey, sports fans football season's here and it's time to get in on the action with my bookie.

Follow us on Facebook and Twitter and download us on. I tunes soundcloud and Google play. All right. Welcome back to the GSM see soccer podcast. We spent that first segment talking about Manchester United losing to taught them three nil. I mean, United played well. In the first time it's just went to second half got here. They absolutely fell apart. Second segment, we talked about the other EPL matches that took over to place over the weekend, and now we talk right l. Madrid. So dribble getting used to life without Renaldo. He's been their team since the two thousand ten season now over in Venice and Madrid, so far, two games into wins. I mean, you can't really complain there. Can you know you can't. I actually don't tell that to Marcelo and Benza. And before we get into all that Madrid to matches played guitar Fe, Rona. Currently six goals for them. One goal against Slade done pretty well for themselves to start again. I mean, not the greatest teams, but none. The less games where they took care of business. McGinn added cream Benz scored twice yet Gareth bale Gorna goal on with Sergio Ramos on their past match. And I'm not really here to talk about what they did, what they didn't do against your own or anything like that. When I'm here to talk about is the fact that Marcello in Ben's Emma, both made comments after the match about how. They're still adjusting to life without an Aldo, and it wasn't just like, oh yeah, like we'll be fine. We'll not not not like kind of comments where they're not playing their best football yet. And that's crazy. Consider just looking at the fact that these comments came after a four one winning as your wallet. And again, this is what I mean as far as the standards of Manchester United. When I say that you got Madrid winning four one, but they're still not happy with their performance. That's the way United need to be. Maybe I'm out of touch things have changed over there. But I mean with as much money as they bring in and the history of that team that club, I should say. Center should be raised, but I always moving on. I mean. Granada Madrid. Got a great team still, you got Ben's Asensio east bail crews, Kashmira Marcelo Ramos, Fernandez, carbohydrate. Novice started in this one. I mean the bench, you Courtois Veron module which Vazquez. I mean, they gotta still saw tip. I'm not sure why this new manager also doesn't start Courtois. Module or Veron. I like Nacho, but I do think Veron is the better defender. I mean, I don't understand after watching modules the last few years from dread and even watching him in the World Cup this past summer, how you don't start that man and makes absolutely no sense to me and Navas has done well. So I guess he's done enough to keep his starting spot, but. We all think that Courtois is the keeper amongst the two. I mean, what was the point of buying Courtoisie weren't gonna pay a bomb play. Him doesn't make sense to me. I mean looking at it, let's take a look at their next few matches. See when they really got like a true test. They got ethnic Bilbao. In a couple of weeks. I'll Bill bell currently sitting in fifth after their first two matches with a win draw. They don't play Barscelona while they place via on September twenty six. They play let it go. The twenty ninth. They play Barcelona October twenty eighth. That's going to be an interesting match to watch and with Barcelona. I'm not sure what's happened to Luis Suarez, but the man is still struggling. There's a point where if he doesn't pick it up. Barsum. I just have to give the guy the boot. I mean in this past match, he had one shot on target that was it. I mean, didn't really do anything there. Them belly is the one who ended up scoring. Therefore, I mean, you look back through their three, no one against the portable allow us. Pleasure score for them. They're messy at two goals, and then you had Katina squad went off the bench coming off the bench. So ours again, didn't do anything in that first match. He had an assist had one shot on target, but that was it. So maybe it's just Suarez is getting old and. Probably past his prime because I mean he is currently thirty one that's not necessarily young in football age. So I mean, he's gonna be thirty two when January twenty four th comes around. So the man is old. I think honestly, it just might be that. And if I'm bar side, I mean as much as he did for that team, you can't really keep them around because of that. You're gonna need the best of the best at each position in Suarez is bringing in the goals, and that's a problem. And we saw that too lassie's. He's still got his fair share, but either way you could tell there something off with. So it'll be interesting to see how team progresses with Suarez if he ends up picking up his goalscoring form again. But so far he's been kinda struggling. And going back to Madrid, this new era. I'm not sure how much I trust the coacher again, don't understand why madrasahs in planning. Don't understand why Iran is implying don't understand what Courtoisie plan. But I mean so far so good and looking at Madrid, I mean, you assume that they're still one of the favorites to win champions at, say, goes bar. Number one. You've number two. Then I'd say you may go with either Byron or Madrid, number three and four. They're p was in all what about PS GM? And we've seen PSG they buy players and is doesn't work out. They don't bring any players within the academy and don't really keep team around long enough for it to work with him, constantly bringing in players in selling players, but we'll talk about PSE actually in the next segment, but I said Madrid dome. Well, I think Marcella might be might be a little too hard on themselves here. I mean winning four one isn't something where we played poorly. But either way it's good to see that they're trying to maintain the standard here from drift. I mean as far as Marcico I'm not really worried about Suarez given that they got way too many other good players for him to cause a problem. But either way he is gonna fix it up or else till be out of there. If Suarez were to leave Barsha. Where would he end up. I could see Suarez taking the deal in China. Yeah, I could see that happening. They offer an offer a ridiculous amount of money. I can see him taking that. I could also see him. There's not really a place for him back in Liverpool. I mean, for menial is they're doing well, you got Sala in Monte on the outside. So yeah, there's no room from there. I mean, it'd be tough. Maybe he makes an Ajax reunion again possible actually. No, that's not China might be next move, Iranian. Maybe make it back to the EP l. but it's the matter of maybe plates, Chelsea type possibly. I don't know for like bars might just be his last big club that he plays for millennia. Guys are gonna be thirty two in January. So we'll see what ends up happening there as far as Madrid. I mean. I'm not. I'm curious to see how just the season plays out for. I don't really have like, I think they have a chance to win the league. I think they can win the Champions League with. That's going to be much tougher than it has been the last few years. Again, the manager kind of scares me with his tactical decisions as far as he starts his eleven. But I mean, like I said so far, so good here looking at their next few matches. They got. Gone is next the mega. So they got off letting Bill bell Espanola after that. They got a tough two game stretch moves. Vietnam played the Deportivo lavas Levante and then bar saw Tober twenty eight. You get valid devoid after that Celtic Vigo. So we'll see how it ends up going down, but our the way hitting, that's all I gotta say for this segment next up, we will be talking about anything else going on in the world of football slash soccer. I mean, obviously a couple of other different topics to talk about. So stay tuned for that, and I will be right back. Hey, DC right now at vision works all prescription eyewear. Every frame.

Only void where prohibited. This is your alternate stop for everything sports, the Golden State media, concepts or podcast, should I say more from the NFL MLB the NBA 'em. It's all in here Golden State media, concepts, sports bide, cast listen. Oh, right. And we'll come back to the GMC soccer podcast. So far today we've talked Man United Tottenham. We've talked other matches taken place over the weekend. Last segment we talked about Madrid and Barcelona. Move on and talk about anything else going on in the world soccer, such but ball, whatever you wanna call it. As I say to Ferretti going to be the interim manager interim coach for Mexico for their families coming up, September, November. Is the Mexican job one that. Is it a job that anyone would be like should take or want to take. I mean, honestly. What are the pros of coaching Mexico. Yet these young players come in. I mean, there's more cons outweigh the cons are. I mean, the federation is always a problem. The deal with the fans have unrealistic expectations for the team. And I mean, that's the biggest part is unrealistic expectations. I'd say. Watch Mexico, but they've never had the quality to compete with the top teams of the world. People say all what about Germany game? Yeah, that was a good win. But I mean, did Germany make it through group? No. I don't mean the cheap in the wind, but it was probably the most important win in their history. Like I said, I mean as far as like play Brazil and around sixteen that when two zero they were never really in that game. Look at the last World Cup. To one another Lund's. Now one do I do blame on Miguel Herrera. I think he went defensive way too early. Not one, but I mean yet Argentina to Elvin tan couldn't cut it. There couldn't cut it in two thousand six last the US in two thousand and two. I mean, they have struggled to compete with the top teams. Mexico will always be a great second tier team. They will never be. I hear t might say, unless somehow they have a bunch of other players, carving Lasana, Walter Irving, those onnell is the best player on Mexican. It's really close at all. Are we does the score he's little scored like almost all of his abuse. Actually, he might have scored on debut because he scored the other day for PSV and their Chevy chimes the qualifying match scored in their League Cup game. I'm the guy just been obstinately amazing for that team. He's going to be definitely making a move somewhere to a big club either. I'd say after the season he's gonna stick out the season with ESPN finished there. I mean, like I said, job isn't necessarily something where I would wanna take her. I think many OTs would wanna take, like I said, expectations are unrealistic in you don't really get much of an opportunity, so I wonder who they will end up with. I hope that they'd find they're mad manager outside of Mexico. I mean, we've seen them bring in managers from league max. It never works. Can we please bring someone in from the outside for once. I see some people want the achievers coach made up. I mean. There's no different than the other guys they brought on. I'd say. So we'll see what ends up happening. You gotta get Herrero who could be playing himself coaching himself out of the club America job, maybe coach Mexico. Once again, some reason that guy feels the news star. We're proud to every single game, which makes absolutely no sense to me is the first time we actually got into the Mexican league talk. I league AmEx. Talk choose me. But yeah, I don't understand why continuously plays them. I mean, browse, it was a good signing at first. Now he's he's old at this point he needs to play day, will I need more and find someone else to take over proud of course, brought the score the last game so that saved him. Another gave him starting. But I mean, look too good. So Faulk anything else going on in the world of soccer looks like drone both tank could be making his move to PS g real sued. I like that move both things. One of the best centre backs in the world when he stays healthy. And again, that's the catch when he stays healthy and at PS g. Mean fairly Babe's taking over that team. I don't think that's necessarily neymars team anymore. They more fans are absolutely angry at the fact that I've said that I'll loud. I mean, if you're cannot it, it is Imbaba's tape. But I mean at the salt squad, they got out there. I mean a front, three of neymar camonte in Bubba. You throw in a bulleting play with Silva. Combat pay. I like many Rabaul's played well, so Martinez and then the Maria. So we'll see the end up getting them. I mean, is this going to finally be the year for PS g where they win the Champions League. I wouldn't necessarily say so. I mean spending money on top of money on top of money doesn't always work now hasn't worked for PS at all. So it'll be interesting to see. I'll works out if they do get boating. But I mean, like I said, they'd constantly bought players in this just never really worked out well for him at all. But we're gonna the one area PSE in first with nine points. Yeah, John second with nine points. So. So. I mean, we all know this league because she's gonna end up winning it all. Let's see. Anything else going on in the world of soccer sailor the MLS over the weekend. Past week, and I believe we had l. traffic between LAF's FC in Los Angeles, galaxy that game took place on Friday. I don't know what it is, but Karl's village is absolutely refuses to. I mean, all he does the score in these games scored a penalty in the fifty first minute. Guys, lots out sworn in the fifteenth. I mean, ever since he got here, the dudes been absolutely a monster. I haven't been able to stop him at all. It's been a bit ridiculous. Withheld Bip. Actually at how well e Brazil. He second in the league goals with sixteen, of course he had Joseph. Martinez was absolutely ridiculous with twenty eight goes there. But I mean. And he's dominated like he said he was at the other matches. Like I said, you had let United being Orlando city to one on Friday, galaxy in l. a. f. c. drawing one one on Friday. Also Saturday, the Philadelphia union beating the New England Revolution when nil their Toronto, Montreal three, one sporting KC beat Minnesota United zero. You had real Salt Lake beating Colorado six zero. Colorado came away with two players with red cards. They're obviously not great. And the good ole sounds earthquakes for me, the worst team in the world. Tuesday on Vancouver and gave up that lead. I mean, everyone knew it was coming. It's absolutely ridiculous how how bad that team is this? The same problem with San Jose every year to bring in a couple of players. Some of them from the Swedish -ly. They'll tell the fans, all we got players from Europe is a step up and it just never works out. I mean, it's been literally the same problems for the last five years. And I don't see it stopping anytime soon, but it's absolutely ridiculous. The New York red bulls beating DC, United Wednesday on Sunday in Seattle, beating Portland, one, nil on Sunday. Also the MLS standings Audis. You got Leno United on. I two points up on New York red bulls. The rebels are currently up four on New York City who currently said, third, Columbus Crew in fourth behind New York, eight points back Philadelphia union, four points back Columbus and fifth, and you've got Montreal in that six spot there out west Dallas and forty six points and first Kansas City sporting KC in second with forty five l. AFC with forty three and third riyal Salt Lake in fourth with forty one Seattle in fifth with thirty eight. And then you got galaxy with thirty eight also. But in six Portland's appoint back of the galaxy n Seattle, same with Vancouver. So we'll see how it plays out. Twenty five matches in here. So. We're going to be heading to the end up either way. It'll be interesting to see how it all plays out there, but that's all I got to say for today. Like I said, Man, United. I mean, I'm not sure what else they need to see in order to rid Marino. I'm not working here. They lost three one at Tottenham or three zero to Tottenham today. Second saying that we talked about the matches that took place over the weekend. Third saying, we talk Madrid and Barcelona. And then for this fourth segment, we talked about a couple of other topics in the world of soccer slash football.

Is Pep Guardiola the GOAT? and Super League Talk

"What's up everybody? Welcome to the start of stoppage time. I am your host max Baril, and this is your soccer talk show podcast. Joining me for today's episode the professor is back, stateside will the cats Baril? How are you today? The letter to be here, max. Thank you for having me. You haven't you haven't heard, you know, the per of Willie's sweet voice since our Champions League final recap when he was coming to us from the Netherlands, but he is back in the United States. He is ready. This is your first episode on stoppage-time and its new format. Are you nervous? Are you excited? What's the what's the temperament super excited? Excellent. All right. So before we get into today's topics a little bit of housekeeping, obviously, the show has taken on this new format where trying to build the hype. If you've enjoyed our first two episodes in the new format. If you could give us a five star review on. Apple podcasts, that would really mean the world it helps the show so much. Thank you to those of you who have already done, it bio means you can keep supporting the show through reviews, you can do it on pay pal. You can do it by submitting questions you can engage with the show on Twitter. All of those things are in the show notes on apple podcasts or on our slightly redesigned website, which you can now visit at stoppage-time pod dot com. So our topics today, though are going to be is pep Guardiola. The greatest manager of all time, a model for a Super League. But first, we have a listener submitted questions those of you listen to the show, you can make questions you'd like to have discussed on the show. You can do that at tiny, URL dot com slash stoppage-time, but Tim, or any beat you to it Tim rights, and he wants to know our thoughts Willie on Maurizio. Sorry, going to Jovana. Office. I talked about a little bit about this. I'm gonna let you go first. How do you feel about sorry moving over to Juventus says it does it seem like a fit to you? It's like a benefit, you know, I think sorry was miserable. In London miserable. I mean he got into so many arguments with everybody around him. I mean he had the Koran Davis scene with his goal. I mean you know, I think he he he's leaving with a good record. I mean if you think about it he managed to finish third in the Premier League. He wanted Europa league. And yet, I think I don't think he looked back on his year in London as a pleasant experience. So anything for Syria thing would be better than another year. Chelsea. I. Agree with you there. I do feel like he needs to leave. He, he gets to leave on his own terms with which is something a Chelsea manager. Rarely gets to do. He went you know he won the Europa league. He won his first trophy. I think he finished better than it felt like he finished given the kind of talks ity around him. But I just, I don't see how he fits Juventus. I mean I see he's going to this team which has these superstars. I mean you've got Cristiano Renaldo. You got deba-. You've got men's Zukas. You know you have these players and are they going to play this kind of pressing quick pass soccer that he that? He's so adamant about. I mean that's the one thing that was his downfall of Chelsea, you proved unwilling to budge on his style. And I just don't see the players at Juventus buying in, and that's, that's kind of how I feel at least of all, I don't think, you know, Juventus has going to stand by and watch him. Where a track suit looking like a homeless guy on the side of the pitch. And he's not gonna look good in tailored suit. Let me tell you know, I think that from a fashion point of view. The actually didn't get an upgrade, you know it. It's interesting how this talion coaches are happy to go back to eat the Lee though, you know, I think there's a there are so many role models. I mean, we're going to talk about some of them today, when, when we discuss upward Yola, I'm sure, but, you know, the law DC the five Capello's the Rover Monchy knees. You know they they travel they're successful. But somehow, you know, they yearn there the mother country, and they're happy to go back and, you know, I think you're right. I don't know how you fences fee will will perform. But I think for. Sara himself going by Juventus feels like literally going home. And I do think that, that, that he will be extremely multi baited to the well Juventus is such a powerhouse me on the I think the league is really not all that, challenging for for juventas a little bit of the situation with with peace Jeanne. France, I don't think they they are going to suffer performance wise in, in the league while they're going to be able to win the Champions League with sorry. I'm not sure but for Syria, I think it say a, a vast improvement of his lot. I agree with you, would you this? This. Performance. It's more of a question, Mark. Yeah. I mean you actually kind of set me up with my other point, which is he was an icon of coach with Napoli. I mean this is kind of like a betrayal of his old fans. I mean, you know, to go to Juventus when he was at Napoli for so long pressing them in never winning the title, but coming close, I think it was your Jorgi no Chelsea said that if he goes to Juventus it's going to be a total trail of you know what he built with the fans to me. I agree where I think he probably -absolutely wanted to return to, to Italy. And I swim returning to Napoli's not really an option with Ancelotti, doing well air but I don't know. I mean I see the appeal, but it does feel to me like it doesn't really fit his style. I mean, that team doesn't fit his style, and it feels kind of like an emotional just, you know. Okay. Well. Forget, whatever I did at Napoli. I don't know it feels like a weird move to me. I don't I don't understand. I understand why he would go there. I don't understand why Juventus chose him. I think they could have pursued somebody else that to me makes it would have been too much for them, the coaches that are I think they should've tried to do. I mean, maybe they did and maybe it didn't work out. I think you try and sign Patino. Think so. Yeah. I think he's the kind of coach that could really come in and kind of galvanize the players that are there. He has so much goodwill behind him. I think players do respect him. So I think he could come in and kind of have that respect of the players and kind of mold Juventus into the future, as I say is entirely possible. Tino, had no desire to leave Tottenham. Maybe that's now where he's feeling settled and the future. But I don't know. I just I don't see why sorry is I don't know. It feels to me like he doesn't fit the mold. The truth. Is that those teams ride to Ventoux his G of the top six in the Premier League three or four teams in Spain? You know, you really need to be by your Munich, you really need to be photogenic you need to be charismatic. You actually need to dress up a little bit for the role, you know, it is actually a position that requires looks yet, and charisma. And, and the salary is terrific coach. I'm sure, but he doesn't have a lot of charisma. He building a load of presence with, with the press, and yeah, I mean, I agree with you. It's not the type of match. The you would think Juventus would be looking for. And then, you're, you're right, which Tino is much more into mold of, of Allegra writer, he cuts, a Annella Gant inelegant figure. He he's a lot of fun. He obviously is has the Latin blog, he would actually connect very well with the Bala you know, I think you're right. I mean he might have been a more exciting choice and possibly a better matchup with, with a cultural Juventus. Here's, here's my thought and I, I am not saying it's happening, but I wouldn't be shocked and all that by Christmas time if Juventus aren't in first or a close second place. He's getting fired. Yeah, but I, I mean I can assure you that it will be I, I would say, I would say. Not bullied my you know put a little bit of a fight, but I think all the talian league to me was really on balance this, this season may be was just, you know, a fluke next year. That will be better in there will be more depth. But look what happened in the Champions League. None of the talian teams except for Juventus made it very far and. You know, when they did there were pretty crush of the Europa league, they were also leaving naked very quickly in the knockout phases of, you know, I think it was a very bad year for the talian the city elite. This is what, what, what I. My son says that juventas will win a seri-, no matter who the coaches almost the question is, whether they can have success in Europe, and I don't know exactly is the guy to get them there. Now. I don't know. I doesn't make a good fit to me, but excellent points about the state of Italian football in general. But let's get to our two main topics today. Willie europe. I what was what is your topic? We've already previewed it. But in your words, what's, what is it? You'd like to discuss today. A have follow pep ward euless career with great pleasure, as you know, he has gone from one team to another that I really love and respect in do want to hear your thoughts conversation about whether you know, he, there's no doubt that he's a fantastic coach. Is he the best ever is, is always a sort of a silly question ride because it's so hard to compare across time when the eras in soccer are so different. But I do think that he is definitely one of a handful of coaches that have change the way we think about soccer. So I wanted to have your thoughts conversation around, how good is sped ward, Yola? I think I mean I think he's right there at the very pinnacle of the sport. I don't. I don't particularly like him. I obviously respect what he's accomplished tremendously. I don't I've never, as I say, I've always respected the the way they teams you can't you can't help marvel at how his teams play. But at the same time, I don't enjoy watching his teams play per se. But you I mean when you look at what he did at Barscelona and you say, astounding, what the team was capable of. And, you know, you could try and undercut it by Hedley. No messy. But he's compounded by that what I think of doing something very difficult and going to Germany and then coming here to the Premier League and continuing to dominate and not just dominate. He's really, you know, there was so much skepticism when he went to Byron Munich about his ability to really enforce a style, his style. Could they play like Barcelona and they found that style again? And then then it was when he came to the Premier League. All of that kind of soccer would never work in the Premier League. And sure enough, it worked. Pretty well. And I saw I marvel at his ability to achieve that excellence. I marvel at his ability to really connect with his players to me. That's such a huge thing and you see the way his players. Look up to him. You know how his words resonate with him? How you know, I mean, the, the bonds, he seems to create with his players are tremendous and he's one of those few coaches, which I've been really on this cake lately, where it's like, you know, I think I think, in modern soccer where there's so much focus on. Well can coach in implement the right tactics. And by the right players that fit those tactics. And there's we've almost lost sight of the ability of coach to really make his players better. Do they improve this players? And I think that is frankly, where pep Guardiola might be the best is his ability to make the his players better now you. Yes, he plays for teams with tremendous budgets and they buy fantastic players. But I don't think you can argue that the players he has show market improvement under his care. I don't know what do you think? Just said something very important, and that is understanding who will play well in your system and, you know, he's my sister cities criticized for all the money that they spend but nine Chester United United the last couple of years just to give a reference to team that, that we both know will in love. The to squander so much money. Right. I mean you know, since since of within gal was there they spent close to three hundred fifty million dollars in new players a quarter of going for Pol Pot by. Of a third of that almost going for Alexis Sanchez. I mean, you know, having money to buy players those Amine that you going to do well in what I think we're ULA has done is understood who will play a critical role in the way he wants to play soccer. And then would you said is, I think what makes him so great? Is that he convinces the player about the role that he has to play in his system and the player Bicet and not only buys it, but really embraces it with, with, with great conviction and the changes that you see Bernardo Silva was a player that was extremely accomplish already. But he's thing when the best middle fielders. In Europe, now in the world now. And, you know, I think it's all word y'all s coaching. Sterling remember, she was such a distracted particularly focus. He was of very effective impressive, but in the -ffective forward, now he has become a force to be reckoned with, you know, the way he has actually brought this system of three backs and the people that he had actually that he has recruited for those three bags. I mean I find his ability to identify players that can fulfill the rule. And then find cume that role he does a better than anybody else. Anybody else? And, you know, in this day and age were player sky of much more power than the coach. This is something I wanted to eventually bring up, right? Because. When we say is the best in the world. I think everybody might say, yes, is he the best ever, right? People will say, well, what about Alex Ferguson about surround skirts? You know, and Ferguson thing was a manager of a different era, when, when the coach was much more powerful than the coach today is so in a narrower the players are so ego Centric, they're the real stars. They're divas to have players love their coach and play with the coach style is with conviction. I think is a major achievement. Yeah, I agree with you with any bakes. It does beg the question. Who are those other coaches that are the upper echelon of all time you brought him up. So, I'll I'll advocate for him obvious and tremendously by but ceramics Ferguson to me. I, I don't know. I mean, there's no way to know. Right. But you could almost say all it seems like it's easier. I don't know you maybe make an argument both ways. Is it easier to jump from team to team and spend three or four years? You know, as Gordy Ola seems to be doing or is it easier better or more difficult, to, to do a cer- Alex Ferguson didn't spend, you know, decades at a team crafting it. Rebuilding it over and over again. And maintaining that excellence throughout. I mean, to me, I, I, I have tremendous respect for that, because I think it so you know. Pep Guardiola never really had to change. Generational talent at a team. You know he's never had to you know see one crop of your best players. Leave and really bring in that next crop to take their place. He's always kind of been able to be there, really and craft them really into their peak moment. And I would be in an alternate reality, I would love to see what Guardiola would do if you if you just spent twenty years at Barcelona. Long outlasted messy and see what he would build in that case, I would be fascinated, but your points, I always had such tremendous respect for Alex Ferguson. And she said, you know you couldn't really get away with it now. But at the same time, how did he get away with it, then which was that he said that he refused to have a single player on his team who made more money than he did that he had always said it was extremely important that the coach is the person who makes the most of the team because otherwise, there's that, you know, the, the respect power dynamic falls through, and I remember when Wayne Rooney was renegotiating for a huge new contract, which he finally got he only got it after ceramics. Ferguson. Got a new contract that insured. He would be making more. And, you know, I gotta respect that ends ability to say you know, I know how to keep the power in my court. No. I mean was he fantastic. Coach. I have. No. I mean. Yeah. You can only have respect for his record. You know, there were tool them, by the way, you know, our send anger at arsenal of was much less successful in terms of trophies than that looks Ferguson was, but he stayed what twenty two for three years when two years at arsenal had the tastic season that is still on the way he went on beaten. I think still has the record for most consecutive games without losing almost fifty forty nine you know, he was unbelievable guy that stay again, the longevity was, was impressive that role you know, the. The our sense Bangor's the Alex Ferguson's I don't think we're gonna see many of those again. No. I think the pressure now the media pressure, the number of games that you have to play the, the salaries that the players are now getting is just a very very different game. Very different gaming. I don't I I'm not saying that Ferguson with not be able to be successful today. I just think that the type of record that he build Manchester. United would almost be impossible to recreate today. This much more competition for players. There's before Manchester United, you know, they actually call you. When you jump guards player that was no better place to be today. You know, you're talking about a dozen teams in Europe that are. Are equally attractive to players and, and you know that, that the that world that was so much more for Arkle I think than because it's a peer you know, and I think it's really hard for coaches now to to to stay on top of what they do with burning out now. I'm curious, I agree with you. I don't think it's just the hyper focus. We have weighed the press works today media all of it. I think it all conspires not to mention with what you're saying, just the wealth that spread across so many clubs and all that they're able to achieve I tend to agree with you. I'm curious though, if you have any other coaches that you kind of put up there that maybe challenge at at pep Guardiola. I mean, maybe a little Johann crave. I don't know. Well, I mean, you know, I think, well, first of all, because I don't want to forget, please you criticize. Is the cardigan the pep word Yola war? Last fourteen weeks. I don't know if he Washington between games, but he definitely thought that this was his lucky charm, cardigan. None of you saw today, but the actually auction that for the Manchester City's foundation and an American butter for six thousand pounds. Yep. Yeah. I mean, he really only I think leaves one possibility, which is that this was a ghost buyer buying on behalf of pep Guardiola. You are conspiracy theory kind of guy come on, but it might be true, who would want that Oregon. I mean it's like forget it. Yeah. Well, maybe, you know, it's a site business. I mean, you know, that looked like a forty nine ninety nine kind of guard against Ella for six thousand pretty good thing. Way, if the terms were that I had to wear that card again, the number of times pep Guardiola has worn it, and you paid me six thousand pounds. I'm not sure I would take that offer. Anyway. You know who who is in the league right of worthy all at? And you mentioned the Johan crew for me was really the teacher right? I mean he is really the Gouraud. You'll I think learn this total soccer from. And, you know, he has really push that vision of eleven pleasure players in constant movement, including the goalie, right? The goalie. As a player that needs to have, you know, really good feet is, is part of over the coup refund of vision, but. You know, we need to talk about the villain, the villains, and that's Hussein would e. Right. And. This is another issue, which is interesting. One of your thoughts on it Colson. Woody, new is the thing, the one very successful coach that never play soccer professionally, I he certainly one of them I think including his also is his disciple who haven't heard from since Andre villas, boas. I don't think was a player as well. Know I think that has a lot to do with how players respect you whether you actually suffer on the on the pitch. And you know what it means to really get kicked than get kicked card funeral getting injured than than you know all of what happens on the field. He to me. In order to really be a great coach of anything. Certainly soccer of being a player really matters. I thank. And so, you know for me club Dino. On the you know, Allegra are really great player. I mean great the coaches, you know, there's e-van obviously, as a magnificent player ride would offend tastic player. He was. I don't know if he's a really good coach. You know, he came into Real Madrid as the time when Real Madrid could do most no wrong circling Champions League. I'm curious to see what he's going to do in the next couple of years with this rebuilding of the team. I don't know if I can put see then really on the top list of, of coaches at least not yet, but Wardi all. Ward Yola and you and I have talked about this embarrassments of riches in terms of how great the coaching isn't the Premier League. Right. So if you think of, of the top four five six teams in them in the Premier League all being coached by terrific coaches. What I like the word Yola is just his vision for soccer unite. Thank his little bit stalbur n- or released Auburn. And sometimes, you know, certainly the Champions League in this two game series he's not particularly willing to play defensively to, to play to win by playing ugly. And I think that's a weakness of his, but it's hard to argue max with the fog that were you'll life think has changed. The way we think about sauger and how much she has been imitated across the board. Yeah. I think you're right. I agree with you that it seems to early to really speak to the Don. I agree with you. I do think he kind of was at a point where. Things were very much in his favor. I don't think it's necessarily gonna work out the same way the second time around, but we shall see, you know, it'd be very interesting to see, you know, he's already got some big signings underway. Maybe he will very well prove himself to be a truly outstanding coach, you mentioned enchilada. I have so much respect for Ancelotti. He's a coach that I think, you know, any team would be super lucky to have and then Marino, I think his legacy is very much at this turning points where it's, you know, endanger of kind of going off a cliff, but at the same time you look, you know, he's had such a turbulent last few seasons that it's you forget how much that he's a chief as a coach. And even if it's kind of ugly, and horrendous along the way you can't argue with a lot of those results. And so you say, well, let's see what he does next and that will be fascinating. You know, if he can redeem himself and kind of rea- cheap. We've never felt further. From the special one. So we'll see what he does. His Trumpian in a way, you know, he is really a figure that. Is so driven by media. He is. So a wanted to scandalise people. He wants to get on the people's skin. You know, his guy that understands the media dick impact that coach talking about Sarry earlier ride Marino, is basically the anti feces of a salary, you know marina likes everything about him. And in a way, that is not always pleasant the knife, find that, you know, this this, Colt of his personality. The fact that he wants to be so in your face really detracts from anything else that he goes on the field. You know though he cut off infested season with Chelsea, and he had a fantastic season with Real Madrid every. Thing else around, even when he was at Internacional and, you know, they lead they want everything. I never liked the way he played, you know, he had this couple of enforcers, always in Carlisle, owing bet bay now the always very, very on inspire soccer. With, with a tremendous amount of tendency to file and to this disrupt the play of the all there, rather than really build your own play. I don't know. You know, I think the physicality of the marina teams was impressive was overwhelming, you know. But was not what I would consider pretty soccer, and certainly not a philosophy of soccer, that could in my way of thinking really be that a philosophy of soccer. That would make the game better. So I don't know. You know, the impossible to, to talk about the best coaches without mentioning his name. I don't find him in inspiring figure no, no. And on the flip side. I mean if I if you are the player under Gordy Ola, or a fan of his team's anyone. I mean it's hard for him not to inspire quite a bit of confidence and off just what he's able to accomplish with the sport. So as you say it's impossible to really rank people against each other, especially across eras teams and so many different contexts. But no question he seems to be right up near the tippety top of the managerial world. All right, Willie time for our second topic. And it's something you and I've never really discussed that in death and it's the idea of Super League. This is one of those things that has been making the rounds more and more. Controversially, whether a Super League taking the best domestic teams across Europe and just putting them in a league altogether and removing them from their domestic leagues. Whether that would be a good idea. I'm not particularly interested in advocating that it is a good idea. I don't think it's a good idea. I think we should continue with the system we have, I think domestic leagues are beautiful saying, I think that local rivalry is spectacular and valuable while I see that, you know it's unfortunate when you have teams win leagues by twenty points or so. Even though Liverpool and Manchester City were in a two horse race this season. I mean it wasn't still thrilling. And you don't still have those, you know, epic relegation battles. So I I'm not an advocate for a Super League. But that doesn't mean that my hypothetical brain doesn't start turning and wondering, well, what might a Super League look like one I'm curious to hear your thoughts on a Super League in general. Whether you think it's a good idea, but I have to pitches for you willy on a structure for a Super League, and I'm curious to hear your thoughts. All right. Are you ready for this? I am ready. I'm thinking, okay. Now again, I'm not gonna say that these are super well thought out or realistic, but they kind of tickle me in a way. They're I'm like, I'd watch that sounds like fun. So here's the general idea. We started off, and we go to the top ten coefficient leagues of Europe which. If you're not familiar or currently, and this is an important part kind of surprising to me, not the top of the list the bottom of the list, the top ten leagues in Europe are currently number one Spain, number two England. Number three, Italy number four Germany, number five, France, number six Russia number seven Portugal. Now, this is where it surprises me a little bit. Number eight is Belgium. Number nine is the Ukraine number ten is Turkey and missing out on the top ten which just generally, shocks me given especially the season. We just had number eleven is the Netherlands, so poor Netherlands. Sorry guys, but let's say we're talking about those top ten teams of Europe. I would say I want the two best teams from each of those leagues. So I want to teams your first and second place team from Spain England. And so on now you've got twenty teams you got a lead to work with. But it brings a little diversity of you know it's not all half English teams half Spanish teams or something. That now in this first model will let me tell you to keep things. Interesting. I'm not so interested in, I think relegation is still vital. You know, you need to have that fear of going and losing out, but three teams that's just doesn't cut it you know, this is this is the Super League. So every season I want ten teams relegated back to their domestic leagues half the league gone half. The league comes in now you're asking me, how are you going to decide is it just the bottom ten no Willie? It's not that simple. I want an added layer in the mix. Okay. The ten teams get relegated or the or the ten teams that finish below their other national counterpart. So if you of the two Spanish teams, whichever team finishes, lower in the table is going back to Spain. And that way you can filter in one new team from each league to fill the void and it always remains to teams per league. I think it adds an ex interesting. Dynamic of local rivalry. Now, of course, you're saying you're gonna face a situation where team might the two English teams might finish first and second in the league. And the second place team is going to get relegated. Yes, they are. And so that's my first, that's my first model. Why don't we take a pause there? What do you think about that one there? Interesting. My only concern is putting the ten best leagues on one playing field because they're not. I mean, you know, for me, the first five that you mention are so superior to the second five. There's really a continuum of quality hearing, there's a real drop ride, and maybe we can actually save Portugal. The Portuguese league and make it a six but, you know, Belgium, Russia and Ukraine. Think are really looting quality, but I want to hear your second your second model, but my first reaction to what you just said, is your idea, low is national team in the Super League going back is brilliant? I like that. That, that's a very smart. Little twist. But I think I would like to see the I would rather have three top teams from the six top leagues for total eighteen row, than and maybe bring on some sort of criteria. Two more teams have a twenty league than than than really give two tickets to, to Belgium, to Dicketts to Russia, to, to your crane. So I really think are from quality point to view in prayer. But let's that, that's my first reaction. I like some of the features that you mentioned think they're very interesting. I don't know if bringing those countries in the top four those leagues into the Super League will make it release super interesting not super enough for you. Okay. Fair enough. I hear what you're saying. I hear what you're saying super enough, not super enough for Willie cats real. I see. We gotta take things up in notch. All right. The next one it might speak a little bit to your concerns. But I like to start from an egalitarian point of view. I don't want people coming in. We create this Super League and they say you know what? This is totally biased. You know, look, there the let's let's pretend the Netherlands, where the tenth ranked team but, you know, look at acts, they made it to the semi-finals of the Champions League wide, aren't we included? So here's my. Here's my model number two Willie. Same beginning premise two teams from the top ten leagues. We got those same twenty teams to start in this model again I like the ten. Team. Relegation it feels right. To me. So every at the end of the season, the bottom ten teams bottom half of the table. Boom, you're gone doesn't matter. Now, you know, doesn't matter where you finish compared to your other nation. If both teams from England finished in the bottom ten boom, you're both gone. Now, the ten teams to replace them or will always be the, the champion of each of the ten domestic leagues now. So you get the taint those same ten leagues reinforcing the, the Super League but only with one team. But what I find so intriguing about this give it a few seasons. And I think we can come to an equilibrium state, which will be fascinating constantly evolving, as to what are really the best teams out there because if the Spanish leagues Spanish teams are always finishing in the top, and never getting relegated. But then they're consistently getting one additional team every season, the Super League is going to start to. Really reflect the power of the domestic leagues. And you might find that the Super League does have five or six Spanish teams in it. I don't know what are your thoughts on this one? Kilifi were six teams from one league. But I do like what are you? I know that, that, that, that's in, in your gene, the galley Teheran kind of guy, but let's just from a place where we're saying that Europe. European teams they all have something to offer. And if you have five or six let's say the two teams finish in the top ten right? I mean so now next season, you're going to have three teams if the three Spanish teams all finished in the top ten you'll now have four Spanish teams. So that's how it would over time. One time. Better because I'm gonna tell you. Let's say that rail Madrid Barcelona are the two Spanish teams and Barcelona, gums in second, right to, to Real Madrid. Not second as in first and second. But in your description, just below Real Madrid's ranking. And so you lose Barcelona in the Super League and you actually keep an Andrew lack from Belgium. I mean, I think that, you know, you're a galley -tarian streak hero, actually is the warring down the luge of quality. I don't think has to be a balance between when you're talking about Superleague. It cannot be Europa league. You're a beleaguered is a geography lesson, right? I mean you go tool. This country said you don't even know existed. Ed, it's okay. It's fun. You know you end up playing but coup and places. Like bed, which might be fun for someone working on TV. But to me, the Super League is not about geography of the reciprocating. It's about getting the best quality teams and if that means that you're going to have in a ten Spanish teams in ten English teams in the Super League, but you have the best twenty teams in the world. That's what happens. And and you know finding a way to multi Baid teams to become the best in the world to be part of the Super League. I think is what makes sense to me, rather than a criterion of geography dispersion in the reciprocating. So I will like bore you know, I go a little bit against your galley -tarian push. And like to be more of an elite kind of selection criteria. So and how does that. How does that evolve from one season to the next? I mean my concern is. I don't think be stagnant. It can't be the same eighteen or twenty teams every season. But and it can't start out. I don't know to me it feels I understand. Yes. The appeal of saying, let's go and get the absolute best teams but to just kind of cherry, pick and say, well, we'll take let's see maybe Juventus, and NOP Alie, and maybe inter-milan from Italy. And then we're going to take, you know, these five teams so we'll take three teams from Italy and five teams from Spain, and five teams from but only two teams from France. It feel so it feels like when you watch kids at the park, and they're like, they're like, you know, I brought the ball so I get to decide and it's like we'll just because you have them, you know, you're really going to face a situation where it's the twenty richest teams in Europe. So why don't we have that be the criteria? How much money you have? That is the thing you know, this is a narrow were, you know, everybody thinks they are above average, like leg begun here. Everybody's smart everybody. Scancen everybody's above average in. That's not the case, right? I mean you're going to have. Teams are above and teams are below average and the Super League to me is about all of the teams that are about average, and it's not fair and clearly the teams are going to make to the top or the teams that most likely are the ones that have the biggest checkbook, you know, my I'm not Super League kind of guy and for the reason why you wanted to mention the risk of the looting the quality of the domestic leagues, but it means the champions leagues goes away, right? You're gonna have the Champions League and the Super League in peril. I don't think that that would happen, isn't it, it wouldn't the Champions League be like the equivalent of the FA Cup. I mean it's just it's, it's been knockout round tournaments that partners the Super League you. I mean, that's, that's a good view. I mean. You know, I always thought that in order to keep some domestic interest the teams in the Super League, we're still play their respective cups in their own countries, is what I mean so that they would steal remain an attachment to where they came from fair. So I thought that the FAA Cobb for the British team for the English seems would be the way to still have a presence locally, but I didn't see the Champions League as apparel but it's a good point. And maybe you know the seeding of the Super League if you want to make it a little bit more on court. Married base should be the sixteen teams that made it to the knockout stages of the Champions League. Interesting. And, and that so you start the league, you know, and so they're the Champions League will take a an even added interest in the will be more interesting for to watch now. You know, could you have actually the Champions League three year and parallel with a Super League you're talking about already right players that are so overloaded? I'm I'm not sure that you can sustain that base. This would be the question where I think it would you know that's the balance where it's like all if you're playing a league competition every week. And if you did the champions as well you're you're playing in the mid week, and how do you how do you properly, train for that marathon, if you will, because that would be, you know how do you balance the fatigue? That would be so interesting. Well, but that's why the rich teams will do so much better right. Because it will have like twenty. Thirty players that are, you know, two hundred and they will just rotated like crazy and the teams that are poor cannot make their now that to me, you make that Super League it will really drain that Super League will attract all of the talent, I think it'd be very hard for a player not to be tempted by Super League presence. Right. So I really think that the Super League will eventually suck up an out all the talent from European leagues and. It will be like a like, yeah I league be in all the domestic leagues. It will be very hard to keep think, and interest. I like her much in your proposal right in your first proposal to make two teams and one that goes back to the National League the next year. But you know, I just think having twenty teams of which ten of them come from countries that I mean country's just leagues that are not particularly powerful. Not all that compelling to, to a Super League. Faye? Conflicted abo- Super League. I think you know, I think the parts of the problems of the premise of Super League. Right. I do think you need a little bit of diversity, and you need a little bit of that culture. Clash, right? I mean you need a team from Turkey playing team from Italy. I mean you know, not to in any way of disrespect to Turkish teams. I mean they've, you know, for they're not heights right now, but they've made deep runs into the Champions League before. But I think in any form of Champions League you need to have tremendous turnover because I think if if the Super League exists, and there's not a very real threat of not being in the Super League, or she me of being in the Super League next season. Players are going to get super apathetic, and you're gonna see the best players in the world start to perform poorly, because it's like, well, you know, so I think you need some sort of system that sees a lot of these teams going back to their domestic leagues and therefore those domestically battles are vital to the next season of who's going onto the Super League and who's coming back and, you know, something along those lines because I do agree that a Super League by itself, kind of its own semi closed off entity that, you know, I don't know gets reevaluated every couple of seasons or something like that is, is not in anyone's best interest in the, but it's again it's I agree with you. It's always really fun to have this, like a Turkish team the talian team. Right. I mean for the fans is phone. It's, it's really interesting. And I get the question is, is a Turkish team. As you said, respect to to the Turkish league. But is the Turkish team sort of a punching bag for everybody else in the league? Right. And so the fact that you're adding some cultural and. Geographic diversity may actually go against the notion of really having the best possible teams. Now what do you do right with a in Ajax like this year? What, what happens to that the what happens when you have a team that exploiting really football and is not in the Super League. How can bad team make it to the Super League? There has to be a mechanism to identify teams like a this year in the Loudon into the Super League. This is what I don't like the Super League has been proposed in L is different models, by the owner of Juventus or the whole no or Florentino Perez, from Real Madrid. It's always based on historic performance. I deserve to be there. Right. Exactly. What happens when you have this upstarts I agree with you? And you know. Fica in Portugal was playing some really, really fun soccer. Also. And what what, how what's mechanism to get teams from again? Respectfully called minor leagues into the Super League. I don't know. And just let importantly, how do you get the teams that are falling flat, but have that historical significance. I mean you look at the idea of a Super League right is the problem is it's being the proponents of it. Are these the clubs themselves? And so they're going to structure it in a way that best protects their interests. But you know if the Super League's listed this season with all your traditional historical powerhouses, and Manchester United finishes bottom of the Super League with realms rid, right behind them, and it's like they're not going to be like, well, we're going, you know, we're out of the Super League next time after we rebuild, but they need to like, you know, if you're not good enough, get outta here, and we'll bring in a team like I actually have been fica whoever that's playing. Ng exciting. Soccer. You know, to me, it's a is, is it really? It would be what is the problem that we're trying to solve right? With the Super League this, this is what I mean. Is this just a concussion that is being invented by the Florentino Perez, the Analia as the, the, you know, the, the Glassman's people that have already very well. Stylish teams in this is a way to milk that name. Right. Or is it really about creating super exciting soccer, right? And part of the Super League conversation, you actually started the very well this conversation by saying, even in the Premier League that everybody thinks is a league where you can lose to any team on any given week. There was not much of a race. Right. So how can you create parody within leagues and to me, rather than spending a lot of money and time creating a Super League? I was spent time and money, creating parody within the Mesic leagues and make the message leagues really much more competitive. And I think that would be fun. You know what, what are some mechanisms that we can actually impose on those Mesic leagues across the board to create greater parody by lifting the quality note by lowering the while it was lifting equality across all teams and making the message competitions super exciting and leaving what I think is a very exciting set of games in the Champions League on touch I like the Champions League. Oh, it's gone. No, I totally agree with you. My fear that you'd have a Super League, you'd get the twenty best teams in the world and you'd have all every week every game is going to be like one one zero zero. You know it's. Just going to be these, like tents tactical battles of knowing. To prove exactly, exactly anyway. So there you go by all means share your thoughts on a Super League, with me at max Baril pods. Or if you have any thoughts you can also submit those at tiny, URL dot com slash stoppage-time willy. How did it feel? I mean, you know, how do you like the new structure of the show? I love it. I just wanted to say that I think you agree with me. The word Yola is the best of all time. I mean I didn't hear you say that. But I think sort of also forbidding the first program of this new format. I think it was terrific. I mean you agree with me for once I think it's terrific Willie. What I'm prepared to agree with you on is that this new format is terrific. And I love to have you on the show. But I think my words spoke for themselves and Guardia LA's, pretty particular participated. So the name of the guy that bought the card again was nod disclose. So I'm wondering if he was really maybe, you know. Now, he was a guy from Maryland's named Sepp Sepp, Lordy, Ola. It was really fun. This is a great format. I hope our listeners appreciated there so much to talk about Iran this fantastic game. The is so exciting. I love the fact that you have reformatted the, the program, so that we can have it all year long. Thanks, a lot indeed from week to week we will be with you and just before we even started recording William, I we're having just a gentle, chat and ready out of that.

LADS#77 - Champions League Week 1 Recap

"Ooh. No, no. No. Thing I'm Kevin Pettit and Martin Frazier, a, we are loud America's scuffing soccer, better known as lasts. You. Okay. Just don't. It's just go down logs, German beer. You don't need those. All right today is September. Twentieth twenty eighteen and we are here to deliver. You are Champions League first week round up a review and also give our vets or not. That's our predictions for week six of the Premier League. So, hey, Martin, what's up man. Nothing just shown into law, grew with beer end a microphone. So being super scratching the usual way, North Carolina has libraries. It's mostly made for like distribution of meth, alcohol and tobacco along with some other less honorable crimes. So the libraries, the town center, basically it's not. Okay. Yeah, I did really think it was. So. Where where do we begin? We begin group aid and you have something Martin. Oh, yeah. So in my spare time last night at like one a was going through ESPN and some saga articles. And there's this one article where there is, I think there's five or six crazy quotes that have been made by managers or players in the past, and they all have to do with like a metaphor to an animal. So I'm gonna read these quotes. You're gonna guess who said them. All right. All right. I'm gonna just tell you probably say either juicy Marino lot, but I'm excited to be fair. There are some quotes by both of them in this, of course, are okay going. Sorry, norba everything go. All right. So we're going to take off in nineteen ninety-five when seagulls follow the trawler it is because they think that sardines will be thrown into the sea. Ninety five. I mean, Fergie, I guess no, sir. Eric Cantona. I mean mitt, I had been someone for Manchester United. So. That is definitely Cantona quote if I haven't heard before. So yeah, that makes sense. God, I think we just turned this into a Cantona podcasts can't stop talking about. I would be totally okay with that. Now Americans discussing Cantona latte, Lasik. Next one comes from twenty eleven and it's about Kareem Benza if I can't hunt with a dog, I will hunt with a cat with a dog. You hunt more and you hunt better, but if you do not have a dog and you have a cat, you hunt with the cat. I'm going to Jesse marine. Yes, sir. Yeah, that's so that is so just radio. That was when he was Real Madrid, I'm guessing. Yup. And dissing his own players. So Yep, it works perfectly turns out. He goes on to win three champions leagues in a row. Yeah, that relate. Owed takes exposed Josie Marino. Next one, we'll see. We need to realize we're now the head of the mouse and not the tail of the line. Liden no raw Benitez when Newcastle promoted into the Premier League, what the that was an actual kiss. A fuck. All right. Easy. One lines do not compare themselves to humans. That's live. Yeah. We heard that that was last year. That was what he was manned you. It was twenty sixteen yeah. And shit. Twenty. Sixteen was wild. Go holy crap. Next one, we may be the chihuahuas that run in between the horse's legs, but we are just about improving with each match. Is this David boies? I don't know. No close though Brennan Rogers. God damnit both failed managers. We'll bring the Rogers that are really conceive once, but. Yeah, I did. He's killing it at Celtic. So there you go. That's easy. Five other teams in that league Martin. So raise our Celtic Celtic. That's. That's all I got. Okay. Sorry, Ireland. Last one. It's about Ryan Giggs real quick, Scotland you need, right? Yes, before his thing, pleased. You don't want the Irish coming out against is always, I always mix it up, and I'm surprised I've been had like Irish hitman come at me. You can never remember. They'll get us in the I tunes review. That's how they really me, which would you go do by the way friends. All right. All right. Next one or is that the last one? This is the final one is about young Ryan Giggs. You knew right away the way he ran across the ground that he was something else. He was like a cocker spaniel, chasing a piece of silver in the wind. This has to be Ferguson right there you go. He tried when he said that, and he was recalling seeing a young Ryan Giggs play for the first time when Gibbs retired. Before he slept with people's wives. Hey. It is almost almost par for the course for. Famous English slash Welsh players like John Terry. It's fine. It's fine, dude, ledge, fucking ledge. I, you know, I'm surprised. Konya has made a video about him talking about sleeping with other people's wives. Do Conyers losses, funding mind, just say that. I mean, we again, we can make this a communist five jazz. I the guy's fucking Balkars, but I love it. I mean, the guy, the guy made college dropout late registration, so he's got my respect. He's it's still holding wait for me. I mean, I, it's, it's. Anyway. It's like, what have you done for me recently? Because cognac really hasn't done much recently pushed. He did everything for, you know, he produced that he produced that I think pushes sing. It wrote it. But you need some beats. You need some sick beats dog. I'll take out take Conde for sick beats, but I will not take Connie in any other form. His kind of bears ING himself. Now his leg is like. Wayne Rooney was still trying to play for Manchester Nive like men. No, this time in your life is done just stopping crazy about it and move on. Yeah, but that's flooded says this guy is just pure genius or maybe he's pulling into thinking he is, but. How about soccer players Kevin? I know I just I just have county fever. Before, why am I stuttering so much? What are you drinking Marin? There we go. That's why I wanted to say was was via reviews. What are you drinking? I think we have drink before. It's actually really good on North Carolina beer. It's called dunk. Rabid nukes out. It's five point, seven percent, and you know the the whole like psychological thing where if you look at a duck sideways and looks like a rabbit, but if you looked like a rabid sideways, it looks like a dog. All they done, put it away. Yeah, they put it on their bundle. Do you not know what I'm talking about? The whole duck rabbit conundrum. Now, what kind of backwards should is this come on? I guarantee you the majority of the people listening right now. We'll know the whole duck rabbit. If you take a duck's head and you tilt it to the side, it looks like a rabbit's head. The silhouette of at least I didn't take. Yeah, dude, it's fucking phenomenal. I'm gonna run a Twitter poll. I'm gonna find this out immediately. Has anyone ever fucking her to this expression? I hope so, because if it is that I think my percentage of correct. Like expressions beats yours, one to like a million of how many expressions made up or wrongness. Do. Yeah. I mean, I. Whatever. But how is it? Good. What are you going to give this? I'm actually going to give it give it a seven point five because it's yummy, but it's only five point, seven percent. It tastes like a like a almost fruity beard has that fruity taste to it. So it's really yummy and easy to drink, but it's not strong enough for me. You know, the beer connoisseur during straw, rita's because they're eight percent, and you can buy two of them for two fifty at the gas station that connoisseurs giving. This duck rabbit milk style, a seven point. Five. Okay. All right. I'm drinking the sly FOX October fest. It's a woulda bus fests be which always like fucking threw me off that Tober fess in September that's call. That's false advertising. Right? I absolutely think so, because I think it was into a move to Philly. I thought Tober fest was just off Tober like I had no idea until we went to October fest, like are the first year that we lived there, and we went to south street to the German pub and it was in September, and I was like, wait, is this early? Isn't this early? But no, I'm just dumb. Always thought it was in October, like it sounds so. Yeah. I mean, it would just you just think. Tomba that says, yes, those Niki Germans. They're always trying to hide something. If history, you know, says anything of all right. I'm gonna give this. You know, it's not like a German tuber fest beers, so and I've had way better off Tober fest beer, but is nice. It's cheap. I get it at the store. I'm gonna give this like six point, nine nights. We actually went low this week with our. With arm ratings of these beers? I don't think we've ever really drop lower than seven point five have we gotten boozy is I was happened, are we? We are busy bitches. Now db loud, you'll be glad. Czar. Beep, big, baller bitches. So. Okay. I guess we should talk soccer now. That isn't the podcast is about, I don't know. Should we? All right. Okay. So group a, we have also for the notes. Again, Martin big, big, big shutout the Martin for doing the notes. It's basically what I love for just looking at rewatching highlights of random games that have occurred this we can be like, yeah, I can write some stupid shit about this for sure. Yeah. So Dortmund beating in bruise, which is so great movie is gonna just plugging Bruce every time I see them till they ultimately get knocked out of the Champions League. But let's let's get to our boy, our baby Christian pulisic. I mean, it's the greatest American ever. Right? Can I say that. I think that that's basically confirmed at this point. No mart. I mean, like better than like Ben Franklin. ABRAHAM LINCOLN like, oh, you mean even the historical ones, soccer ones. I think we can say that clearly now in terms of inspiration and what he has brought to America fucking lectures, city, fucked, Ben Franklin, fuck the declaration of independence. Fuck George, Washington, give me pulisic or give me death. Thank you, John Henry. Yeah, I think I think we can say that now. I mean, God, I just love watching him in the Champions League. He is electric and you know, could be the dark horse. I mean, it's not like me the second best team in the league, but Dr Champions League make a good run. I, I'm, I actually cannot see Dortmund advancing any further than the round of sixteen I've. They will get out of this group them Athletico. But this game was. Gritty dirty and pulisic dot lucky on his birthday to get this goal. So I don't. I really do not know how well Dortmund is going to do this year in the champion's league. Like it almost seems that they could do really well. But realistically, though advanced past the group and get knocked out by one of the more powerful teams, but as long as pulled her searches scoring on a happy man. Yeah, it's really what I live for. Like if anytime Christian like succeeds, I feel like ice exceed. So like I live by Kerry asleep through his own success. Like I'm mccown versus guy. He's twenty. I'm twenty four. What the fuck am I doing? I have the worst part. I hate when I had this x. central crisis. Every time I watch these young athletes where I'm like, wait, like you're younger than me like, why are you look like? I don't know. It's it's. It's like Diego Kosta. He's only like what? Twenty nine. You look forty five years older than me. What the fuck is that what I'm gonna look like with twenty nine bets. That's what's terrifying me like I could look as horrifying as the ago at twenty nine, but who the fuck knows. I will say. That I think pulisic will in the next two years leave Dorman to go to another club. Once he hits that twenty four, twenty five where he's just getting into the prime of his play. I think that he will and should leave and just be like, look on. Great. I gave you guys everything. Thank you so much for everything, but I'm gonna go tear shit up in that UPN tear shit up on Meyer estrin. Yeah, because you know firings always, they never take any doorman players know just like liberal never takes any Southampton or Roma players. Yeah, they never do that. Moving on to Athletico, hey, sup against Monaco. It's just feeling Monaco's show themselves. It's nice that they got a goal, but I mean, it was pretty much it go show. Right. Oh, yeah. And I mean, you can't really blame Monaco at all because they've been Southampton. Dorman did, like all their youngsters have left in the past two years. So this this is like you said, a show of their old team. So I mean, I don't think anyone's really too shocked to see the Monaco people not playing up to their potential because they've had such a crazy time of replacing people, but Athletico watching Atlantico play. They looked like the twenty four, teen athletic. These have that fire. They have that fight. They have that Diego Simione hatred back in their clay and it. It starts with cost. I swear to God that for. Athletico to be truly great Diego caused the has to be on that team or like minded player, but I fucked with that co. I think they're going to surprise a lot of people in this in this Champions League and go pretty far. Yeah. I mean, I don't wanna call them at dark horse because they're filled of athletic. It's like saying, I don't know the falcons Dr course NFL dude like they were just Super Bowl. You know what I mean? I mean, they've been in like, what's it call it to champions leaks, which unfortunately lost. But like finals. You know what I mean? So I don't wanna say they're dark horse, but I mean when you have like Barscelona reality Ventas of Byron, it's like we'll, would you what it starts gets the six or seven players or those dark horses? I don't know. Like six, seven rethink could win it. I, I don't know because I'm kind of the same calling. Athletic darkhorse kind of feels insulting because I mean Dera fantastic team. They have like fantastic players all up and down the pitch. But at the same time I don't think anyone realistically has them winning the Champions League final. So I think that they're not favorite, but I don't think they're a door core, so they're kind of in that purgatory just shown in that purgatory. Yeah, it's really weird. Speaking of a team that's to the Champions League, or I c of o, I C Green. Mins of what's it called statement on a Ron Rinaldo in messy saying that he's like on par like just as good as them. Right. Is that we were talking about that statement? Yeah, and I wanna know, would she think of that. I don't. I. I mean, honestly, I don't like really have a problem with it. Like if I'm playing of soccer, I wanna be the best. I'm going to think like the only way to like really exceed is think you are the best at what you do. You know what I'm saying? Like if Greece Mun says this, I think he truly believes that in that he can like be on par with two of the goats because if he doesn't, I think it's the only way he can mentally like try exceed in like push himself pushes ceiling. You know what I mean? Like I'm totally fine with like him. Things like if Blake Bortles of the best quarterback in an, we'd all like laugh at him. But I think Blake Bortles would like believe leeann. I'm not comparing the two, but like, do you see? I'm trying to say like, I'd be like I want I want my athletes feel confident. You know what I mean until the doing. I mean, the thing that I was kind of comparing those two was fucking law rinsing that he's the best defender in the world where when hall. Mislead his nowhere even close. But I think there is a difference between Blake Bortles saying that and grease men saying that same thing could be said with, let's say, Matt Ryan or drew Brees hit, drew Brees of he was said, if he said that I'm the best in the world. It's not like an automatic dismissal. Same with Greece if Greece says that he is on par with Rinaldo and messy. It's not an automatic dismissal. Okay. Crease men. Sure. You are like it would be with fucking Auburn saying then, so I guess or Blake Bortles. So like I I as a bad example about example, I like it like Blake, Bortles elite. Taking the pats. Week too. But yeah, I fought with Grysman saying this. I don't believe he's on par with them, but he's close enough to them where he can say this confidently and I'm sure that's going to help his own game. So fucked with him saying that. Good on him. Yeah. If he wants to be confident bucket, like you want to lose confidence, I've all about it but also like ease arguably, like top five. If definitely top ten player in the world, we'd say exactly exactly. And that's why I think this is totally different than sing that he's the best because that might be little confidence booster for Lovran saying that he's the best, but no one in this world believes that he's even close to coming in the top fifty of defenders. The best defender on your team don't exactly. All right. Moving on to group b Barscelona it was the best show versus PSV. Got the of that messy free kick. Messy is just just he just. He broke the record for most hat tricks in the Champions League. Just goat goddamn go, I know run out as your goat with God. Damn, I going to be the satis Eam oh Greek day kid. When he retires, you have no idea. Like my chemical romance. He MO three days grace bucking said when he retires. Damn, you're bringing me back to fifth grade Horta shit right now. Messy is an alien from outer space and Rinaldo is a robot built from here to be just completely like the things that messy just does on a regular basis is just fucking insane insane to watch. And that free kick like, I almost cried teared up very hard, but I doubt and look man, like I, I'm not. I'm no fan of messy. I think that he's author one or two in the world, but just to watch 'em be so lucky to see him play. It just reminds me of just just how lucky we are to see two goats going at each other and for messy to open up this Champions League campaign with three goals and a gorgeous free kick will goddamn messy, go on son. Yeah. And. Just pure dominancy, nine and like it's it's just so wild to see how he's a depth of his game over the years in jail. It just, you know, has remained just two elite, you know, I will see people talking about like Salah neymar and how like they could never even come close the messy in Rinaldo because they've had like a decade of pure dominance. You know what I'm saying? Like, yeah, like these other players will have just like one or two seasons of like where they could be almost on power them or close United. Right, right. Like messy, Renato, have just been leaps and bounds. Just. It's Nive at close. You know, like people are saying, who's going to be the next? Betsy Rinaldo will let me let me, you know, breaking news. There's never going to be anyone like messing Rinaldo that maybe the Bobby, I guess, but he's eighteen. I can't even nineteen. I can't even like guys like I have a whole decade of washing that kid develop or even logger dining. There's no, there's no one that's going to be like messing Rinaldo that I'm probably rental see my lifetime again own. Yeah, I agree and messy. I think again is going to take this team as far as he can individually take the same because I think Barscelona is still a powerhouse to force to be reckoned with. But messy is at the center of all, if you, if you cannot control messy than you cannot win against Barcelona, it feels like to me. And that doesn't just include the teams like PSV the teams like. Some of the shittier teams in league and the champions the, but that also includes like Real Madrid event this Chelsea. If you can't control, messy, the games done like that's how dangerous he is. He is the entire working engine of messy, but I will say I am kinda starting to be impressed by who's men than belly. The young little petulant child who opened at Dortmund. I'm kind of I'm kind of impressed by him this season. He has a couple of goals in league just opened his Champions League account here, and you know what? Maybe maybe he's not going to be a bus that I've been calling him for the past year and a half. So I'm on the fence with him, but impressed. I mean, that goal was out of my God. It was so fucking sick. Just a world screaming about a real screamer. So do you think Barcelona's gonna take it? They gonna might pick is gonna come out right. I don't think so. I expect. I think Barcelona's get gonna get to the semi-finals. I think we're actually going to see a nother team other than Barcelona and Real Madrid, win it all this year. Thank God. All right. Leaving on to Inter Milan versus Tottenham. I'm just going to say like if Todd does a win this weekend, which we're going to get to our preview in. I've been thinking we've been talking so much Champions League. I might break this up in two podcasts 'cause like twenty minutes in. So it really sitting now you are not going to get the preview. I'm gonna post that with this podcast, you guys are getting double double podcast. I've just made that executive decision because we're already twenty something minutes it right. Double trouble yet. Double double the downloads. I mean, I wouldn't. I would never try swindle you guys. So I'm just saying this, if Todd does a win this weekend there in hot shit, cancel their season. It's over Todd are not gonna win anything. I know it's like overreaction Thursday for me right now, but like I'm just saying it like it's like, oh, Kevin, it's only week. Six times of doesn't win this weekend. I'm just just end the season try get next year in like I want them to prove me wrong, but. After watching the bottle against Inter Milan in the west seconds bottle just again. And again, they've three losses in a row like. I, I don't even know what to say, but I all I can say about this game is interest back. Welcome back into Milan. Thank you. Yeah. I mean, the Champions League doesn't seem special without those talion clubs like introducing lawn. And we have inter who is kind of kind of reached that point where now there'd be taken seriously again and going into this game highveld Tom was going to drug them. I fell upon them was gonna walk all over them. But Inter Milan dominated the entire fucking game like Eriksson scored in the fiftieth minute, I think against the run of play, but the majority of the game was just like the game against Liverpool sloppy play shit defending and an invisible attack, so it it's, it's really fucking worrying for taught him, but like huge shutout two Cardi in the no who scored the equalising winning goal lately. They didn't the game. I think it shows. Does that Inter Milan is not to be fucked with. And I'm actually at this point more excited to see interplay Barcelona than I am to see Taunton play because if Tottenham plays like this, they're going to get shit pumped. They're going to get seriously ship hoped, and they're gonna go right to the Europe league and probably beat arsenal. Fuck it would only makes me me saying all these things right now for them to go to the Europe league and then be who I am right in our small. So that's just faded. It's just it's just my fucking lot. It's like you can you getting hit with a hurricane is not even coming close to Tottenham beating arsenal the European league after being set down there because they're trashing two Champions League will will. All right. We'll be all into group c, Liverpool of shout, Dave Kennedy who got to go to this match from Bruce talking soccer podcasts of Liverpool defeating Parasad your mind three, two at home at Anfield. Daniel Sturridge. Isn't it weird that like we're seeing goals by Sturge a while back while that Greece Italy, like isn't like both careers were kinda thought were like kind of like on the done. Latter half. Yeah, exactly. Yeah, it's super weird seeing them. What's it called scoring again and the James Milner with the penalty? Correct. James builder who's ageless like he's just a, he may be father time. I don't know and dominant performance by him in the midfield PSE coming back of muter. The Bobby to now has I believe I saw Twitter, eleven goals at the age of nineteen in the Champions League, which is fucking unreal, your heads zero and messy only had two at the same age. I think that was the tweet like that's Razi. And then for media with the stoppage time goal, which is when I arrived at the Victoria free house interview the head of the report, Philly, which is just mad, people were going. Absolutely. I walked in when he scored the goal when I was like, and I was like, I showed up at the right time. We should so. So what are your thoughts on the game? PS g. PS djing is like, is this PSE again? Like peak PS g. I mean, basically liver pos-. I mean, obviously this year and last year is not a team to be taken lightly, and I don't think any any team really expected Liverpool to be this dominating against PSE from the start of the game, like Liverpool would just look dangerous going forward. And I think it's interesting that claw plays stirs like what the fuck storage. It reminds me how much I hate Sturges stupid. Dan celebration every time he scores because unlike why do I hate you? Oh yeah, you do that bullshit. But yeah, I think liberal definitely deserved to win this game, but I will will. I do have one knock on Liverpool. This this game Muhammed salon looked out of place like he did not look good at all in that game, and he didn't look great against Tottenham either. So I think that a lot of people are not going to like this and. Don't want to believe this, but I think Salah is having his own little mini hangover, like the man is not the same fiery squirrel. The time sa- law that he was last year I expected that we all kind of expect that, but I want I wanna see Salal step up and get back to that scorn ways because if he does anyone can touch liberal. Yeah. I mean, that's the thing they beat PSE. It's so why wasn't good. So that should be worrisome for everyone around Europe. Do you see what I'm saying on? You cut out a little bit. Can you give me a quick Rica? Oh, I just said, like, if so, why is it playing? Well in Liverpool was still dominant in everyone in Europe should be really worried. Absolutely. Absolutely. Like it's a knock on Liverpool, but at the same time it should be a warning to every single other team, and it's not like Liverpool played damn bread Star Belgrade they played PS g. and to that point, I. Off for menu, pulling a name or on name or was the most wholesome thing that I've seen this week. I was just so fucking happy that for me, just Joop name or out of his socks and the other two. That was a. That was Monday. Oh, sorry. Yeah. Yeah. Monay Puna name on neymar. Sorry, I got names confused, but the rest of the match name neymar look pathetic. Like like, fuck him. Can I just say that fuck name or he looks like a crybaby. He doesn't help on defense. He'll have like one or two great phenomenal runs during the game, but man, his attitude sucks. Dude. I hated. I think his stock is dropping quickly. Can I say that? Oh yeah. Oh, yeah. I mean, he's still a top talent and he has the skill. But I mean, I'm just like I used to love neymar, but I think the World Cup this recently. He's just like, I don't know. I, I hope he turns it around 'cause I eat gives. He has at Brazilian flair. You know what I mean? So yeah, but I think he's got to get out of the French league gotta get out of PS, gee, if he's going to have really any respect for what he's gonna do, what he will do. Yeah, I don't. I don't know. It's. It's troubling because at first I had him as a lock is number three in the world. Now I don't. I don't. I don't. I don't. I don't know if I have number three in the world. When I like Kevin O'Brien, if Salah's informed grease Mun Yun. I mean, it's crazy how quickly things can change. Like when he went to PS g before he went to PS g he was in my opinion pretty almost certainly the third best player in the world. And since then it's like his reputation, it's just taken a nosedive, especially in the World Cup. I think that was like the whole time. It nosedive because he's does not seem to have recovered at all from that investment. Yeah, I, I don't know. I mean, I don't know, man, I need to see more need to see or from him. I guess I wanna see more from him in the Champions League, you know, I'm so holding onto twenty thirteen when they won the trouble. But that's five years ago now, isn't that wild? That's horrifying to think years ago, Jesus and also shot about from Neo for the ipad celebration. That was fucking sick. I love that celebration. So. Yeah, I fucked with that. I, I am a fan of Bobby bright smile for me. That was a sick winter because like I said, I thought Liverpool deserved to win this match. But you know what it had to come from for me like I feel like that was just that just made everything right in the soccer world. Like for me, no didn't score at all during the World Cup. Has been incredibly important but has not had a great goal scoring run this year in the EPL and for him to get this last minute winner. Like I was, I was happy for me. I was like, alright, Bobby or you might have gone your eyes poked out last weekend, but hell you have cool celebration. I mean, I love Bobby for media. I think he's out of the front three the most. Like I mean, none of them are like under rated, but like I agree. I know what you're trying to say. Like, he's not up there with that. Samal Monnet conversation like appreciated for his hold up play, which news unsaid that, like we've mentioned it a million times, but like he is holed up play really opens up those two wing players, and it's just rate deceit. He does have at like, we don't talk about like number nine's enough who are like number nine. Number nine. Doesn't like that. True. Striker doesn't really exist anymore, but the false non. Yeah, it's it's a true night. Sorry. No, no, no, he knows the true number nine would be like this lawns. Lukaku Bobby plays more of the false nine where it's kind of a struggle, but he dips back into the midfield to hold up the plan. Shit, like floats a floater. Yeah, a Florida afloat of moving on to. Fuck this game Red Star Belgrade versus happily, Carlo Ancelotti ruin Netflix and of story. Let's move on the group. D group owed socks. All right. Group d can suck every day, but McKinney on Chakai the American getting the assist. I mean, shut up. You are the are American sticking over the Champions League. Can we? Hey, I think so. I sold this one stat. Like I think it's been over ten years since the last time to American scored in the Champions League or got points in the Champions League during the same weekend or the same set of games. So fucking go America. Go McKinney, go. Christian pulisic. I'm still waiting to see Timothy way play for PS g. u. s. a. you at taking say, I know we couldn't do it in the World Cup. We will take over Europe. I mean, I don't really have anything to talk about these games gal, death Ray. I didn't watch either of these games, but. This is the shit group, so it was just move on to groupie. I don't. I really just just like, I see your, I love your note. Here is fucked this group. So. I all I had to say was supposed to be the group of death, not the stupidest group where like literally, none of these teams have any shot in hell to the advance past the round of sixteen group of dipped shifts. That's one of their you go. I like it. All right, thanks. All right group e. Ajax, I sorry. Sorry. Sorry, I x versus Athens a arcade at the. I mean, otherwise. Solve this, the volley that was, yeah, I can't pronounce that guy's name. Can you try it tagliatelle fica. All right, cool. That's. But yeah, that volley was wicked. That's the only thing I take away from this game was like nice. I think I XE putting three goals. I know it's like a t from Greece, but like I feel like I feel like they could come out like dominant performance. Maybe they come out second out this group take in like a at instead of benefit. What do you think that's that's basically what I think too, like benefit is a story team good team. But at the same time I can see this young team of acts, you know, beating them getting them getting to that second place spot. And I will say that basically, aka Athens won the Greek league this past year. So they're nothing to fuck with and benefit came in. Second, I think in the Portuguese. League behind Porto or vice versa. I can't ever remember, but basically all care. Yeah, right. Basically, all we know is that buyer Munich is gonna go through number one. Yeah, we wanted to that buyer with a dominant, viscous beneficial. Gut let it go ski with a goal, ten minutes in Renato Sanchez, mice back. Can we say his time Swansea really developed as a player? Can I can I say that if it makes you feel better like like, I'm, I can't believe he's back in playing in the Champions League, like what a fucking turnaround couldn't even get a bench spot on swans. But now he's playing in the Champions League with Byron, excuse me, something doesn't add up here. Yeah, I mean, maybe because he actually has talented around him now. That's true. Okay, that's that's very true. I, I'll talk facts facts. Just bidding booking facts. Poor small, Kevin, there's do they're coming up. They're coming back to the next year card is going to leave immediately. One Welsh team. It's, you know, the essay is ranked, so they need at least one Welsh team each year because it's just like, you know, they'll there's probably some braces of her. I don't know. Like I don't even know what they would call that. Like when English Welsh are like discriminate discriminating would just be discrimination. I think so. I think so. I mean, it's a like a locational racism. Is that a thing are discrimination by where you won't care, but isn't that real graphic discrimination, racism? I don't. I don't know. All right. What if we have anyone who's English, please hit us up on our Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, this is my quick plug. Atlanta's podcast at underscore podcast for Twitter, the Facebook American scuffing soccer listener like what is that called is a racist visit. Discrimination is just fucked up just. Have you did this fucked up? Like how fucked up? Let us know. Beautiful, beautiful, plug, beautiful transition. And I'm excited to see the responses. One last thing about Byron, I fuck with their new coach, Niko, Kovac. So fucking hard like it looks like an entirely new Byron team like it looks like the barn of the old is kind of back. And even though they're playing with four players who are older than the coach, this team seems to have that enthusiasm and that fun mentality going forward and playing the game. So I'm excited to see how well by do this year, get a bunch of veterans around you this, what you need. You know, they always say the NBA like, that's why LeBron stacking up on the Lakers. He's gonna go win. Right. People could say that that's not true at all. That's not true at all. All right. Moving on to a league team beating Premier League team, have we been wrong all this time? Is it not a bunch of farmers in the league Martin? Aw, maybe not Lee on Monaco and Paris, but everyone else is a farmer. Okay. All right. So I, I saw that argument on Twitter. Someone was like, all right, take your side. We'd be a Liverpool beef be achieved with Leon mid city, the winner of the Premier League liberal cylinder of league. So which side like what? What's what's it gonna be. And of course it was like the second place versus the first place and then vice versa for the other match. So this was a good test for Manchester City. I thought, and they failed miserably. Did you know they lost their last four Champions League matches. They lost this weekend, like as Manchester City tale spinning a little bit right now or is going to be able to right the ship because both these goals that Leon scored did not like typical goals that city that I know and hate would ever give up under pet Gordy Ola. It might be like a champions hangover bright now. They're so like I like they seem really like lethargic. Almost like flat-footed, United mean coming out and it was at the idiot, which only had forty thousand people there was that's makes me. There is fifteen thousand open seats. Like what the fuck. I wanna go there like min city was like a a championship favorite in the odds came out today that they're not anymore. What she might might place that their aunts lowered. So I mean, just can just say, that's, that's like one of those reasons that I hate Manchester City of part from their team itself. Like if you wanna call yourself a team and this is the Champions League opener and you wanna call yourselves real fans and a real team. And yet you face the second place team in France. In the Champions League opener at the t. head and you had fifteen thousand empty seats like no wonder, people made fun of you. You plastic ass fans actually start going to games in supporting your team. If you wanna be taken seriously, come. The fuck on Manchester City fans is Manchester a real sports down. Just kidding. Well, I, I will say though that what's his name? Memphis. Why said on his Instagram story after the game that Manchester is still red, and I got a warm fuzzy feeling. I never thought really should have traded him. I was just like, yes, yes, Memphis. Get that hate out of you. I was. So you're just six midnight. You're just like really was just heart of shit, just. Just so get a, you're like, yes, Memphis. There's any type of Manchester City. Hey, you just like you got up, which you know, again, I think is our city are fucking world class. The whole squad. I their dislike, you know, maybe teams are figuring them out, you know, when you have like seven of the same players all playing like the midfield, you know, like like maybe it's like, oh, yeah, like kinda got, I don't know. But Leo it is a fun team to watch is he got the other notes. I really think like the cure. I think you're in clubs like Salvador at the mouth flick, why should have got hit. Like I know like every team though link with Chelsea, Liverpool is they've gotta be gunning for him in the January transfer window. Don't you think like why the hell? Not dude. I mean they have a, what's his name that Brazilian midfielder has even started for Liverpool yet who the Sabine. Yeah. Yeah. Like data's have like their second team is so good, like Shaquille res out. I mean, I think finally liberal was so much death that that's like. The, they're finally like, all right, like we could like like rest players now satellite force of trying to say, oh, yeah. I mean in the Liverpool past add some fantastic players on their first team. But after that it was just dog shit. And like you said, this is funny Liverpool team, and I think we talked about this like way early in the summer where you look at their starting eleven compared to the ones that are on the bench. And both teams are just fan, fucking tastic. Teams filled with lead players. I was just like, well, God damn and man if they had faquir if they add publicity to their ranks, like what? The fuck, man, chill leave some for the rest of us. Yeah, it's just like. Get fat will hall dislodged. Right. All right. Kevin, what kind of bullshit as expression is that that you're making up now? It's your funeral are a often Heim versus just so fucking much. I, I know you do. All right, hope time. I don't get whatever. What are your by mean? I watch this game either. So just, yeah, I, I don't have anything. Are you lost? Did not watch the game at all. It doesn't really matter because I doubt that other these things are going to make it through to g. All right. That was easy group Geel, jeez, ryava. Drid of winning three nil new Roddy. No problem. I mean, dare fail with the most Gareth bale just like sprinting down, right? I forget like Gareth bale is like the fastest player of the world, and he reminds me every time it's go with the goal before. Sorry, I skipped. This goes how I don't know how I posted it today on her Instagram, Facebook in our Twitter is goes free kick, which just it just does it for me man, like, like, you know, when you finally meet a girl and you're like, cheetahs does it for me. It's like, yeah, just this. This free kick just does it for. Me. I just watching Messier free kick the day before and then watching east coast for kick like the the six to midnight reaction just happened to me again, when I saw he's like, fucking love, go. I think this team is going to be all right without Rinaldo. But I think the most important goal of the day was the ninetieth medical by Marianna Real Madrid's new number seven, and it was another belter. Every single one of these goals were just fucking incredible goals and were super important, not just for the team itself and the victory, but for each individual can bail pickup and all those slack, yes, he fucking can't can marry on the new number seven live up Tex mctavish ins like we'll see. It looks like he can is east goes still going to be able to wreak havoc in the midfield motherfucking. Yes, he can get deliver perfect balls. The bail, yes. Yeah, get. And so you know life. With out Rinaldo and without the day doesn't seem that bad in the Champions League that long legal might be another story, but Real Madrid always seems to just get at least three times better when they play in the Champions League, I don't get it. I don't know. She's like king state king. You have made Real Madrid stays reality dread at. I mean for this kid Marietto to take the number seven from not ticket from run out of claim it for himself and just a fucking score is this Champions League debut? I don't know. You probably played like when the shit games last year. But like me the score on the opening championship game for this year. In the number seven, I there head of his Real Madrid fans, but like, oh, we didn't leave like quake, right? Like, wait, wait, we thought it was vent this. All right, but this this, this guy. Mary on, oh, like his career is is really shaky at Real Madrid. If you look at him, he was on Real Madrid as youth on then. He was actually traded to Leon for the past year, and now he's come back taking the. Honorable number seven from Rinaldo, and he opens up his account in Champions League with the belter. So I'm pretty damning president by Real Madrid as a team and individually, but what are the realistic expectations for Madrid, this campaign? How far do you see them going. I can see somebody finals. That's not crazy. That's that's where I'm at right now too. I mean, I know friend of the show, Anthony show will say like they're gonna win their fourth in a row, but let's let's let's relax. Like we don't think Real Madrid, gonna win it this year. But I mean, fair shout. They definitely have a, you know, I think you know these. 'cause it was the big question was like, we're the goal is gonna come from wealth lease Acklin. We saw that this laya fuckin- Hattie on Roba. So do you think Romo is going to be get out? You think they're gonna be alright against these pleasant in Moscow? I don't know. Yeah. Yeah. Definitely get my talking points of the pleasant to to draw was yes, k. Moscow. Yeah, not go are going through the group for shirt. So yeah, I, I don't think Roma has any reason to be worried Roma's still a damn good team. So I still see Real Madrid Roma going through and then who knows how is gonna do because again, they've lost another critical player so I could see them, you know, trudging along for a couple rounds, but knock getting past the quarterfinals. Yeah, so fucked pleasant Moscow. They drew, but who cares. I I, they all have scary names. All the players scored crib. Chapped love LeSage. Like they also be fighting rocky, like the new sequel or creed you'd. I mean like Yagi Drago did their own the mom, the Russian mom. I'm pretty sure like CS gay Moscow and Lokomotiv Moscow or extensions of the mom. Can I say that. That without being murdered by Russian, the only person listening right now is Jeff Bezos or whatever, whatever's name. So it's a Israeli listened again, moving onto group age group, hell Valencia, eventers run of. I mean, we don't even have to talk about peonies brace, doughy thing that we really need to talk about is run out his red card him. I right. Yeah. I mean, peon got two penalty goals. So I mean their goals, but for God's sakes, the entire nation world universes, looking at the Rinaldo red and in my opinion, saying what the ever living Faulk rubbing someone's head is red cord. That was the most bullshit read that odd seen in a long time yet. I've seen some bullshit reds, Joey. Yeah, that's that's definitely up there. So Martin VAR what's up. No, not via yard appeal. It appeal it to the court and. VAR's your auto, are your honor Serb, but that's exactly what they're going to do though. Appeal it to the Champions League, whoever the fuck appeal to, and I think that it should be overturned. I don't know if it will because this is kind of dominated event is in, we're in all the new news cycles. So I just thought that was the dumbest fucking decision by the ref and and to see how much soccer football means to Rinaldo and how much is new team needs to him. Like he goes off the pitch crying, like I mean, one soft but to passionate passionate, just like, fuck this is why loves soccer like this? Is those. These are those moments that you can't explain like his crying on the pitch because he got sent off. He's crying yet because he loves US. TV loves his players, runs guy, row just loves them, and it's just what it's it was just a horrible sight to see. Him crying in the tunnel on everything. So I really hope that this a red card gets overturned because I genuinely think that's the worst red guard that I've seen in the past couple of years, like whoever the ref was check yourself bitch. Yeah, it kind of felt like he just like, you know, like back in the day when he saw a little kids like Pat him on the head like, hey sport, like, you know, like good job out there. Exactly exactly those such bullshit of I love that you have a note here that says, can't you vent has beat United without Renaldo, Lauren. Yes, like I know, I know, but you got to think not just a team shape, but you gotta think like, you know, Rinaldo is gone. So everybody said, so, maybe event is will be a lot of sad boys when they come play United at Old Trafford or you know, he gets his red card appealed and plays Old Trafford end once again hurts United at Old Trafford as he usually does. I mean, I think you've at this was fine before Renato. The just, you know, go to another level with him. So I think before they could be United, I think if for not does get it appealed, I think they will deathly United. I'm not about saying to be shitty. I think that this would be like, man you to nil would be arsenal six nail. So so I'm just telling you trying to not be addicted, but like I'm just trying to be fair, untold agreements, mild fucking like emotional bullshit saying, hey, there's a chance the goes down. There's cheers. Cheers. You have a puncher shot. You have like if you just land that one punch. Right. You have a chance. That's what I'm saying on. We have at least a chance, you know, who didn't have a fucking chance against United. The young boys of bird Swiss champions. Nice transition. Thank you. I do what to say. What before we get into this game, I saw something on the social media's where it's like when you're trying to find a Streep, you're tried to stream young boys. It's like or trying to find the soccer three, but he put voice sucks. Genuinely made me uncomfortable because it's not on Fox Sports because fog late report. We talked about that yesterday, so I was on breaded and shit. I was just like, okay, and nita's search for Manchester United versus young boys and just typing it out. I was just like. If if people didn't know what I was searching like there would be some serious questions like, I'm sorry, Swiss Switzerland. Y'all should consider a name change. It's not nineteen forties anymore. Young boys of Berne. That's kind of Pedo ask. Yeah. I mean, especially living here in Philadelphia at the recent Catholic church. Babble that whole thing? Yeah, the whole spotlight. If you have seen that movie in Pennsylvania, it's it's been spotlight here of, so let's fucking game Podesta with Paul. Boom, it's it's great to see poked performing at his World Cup caliber, which is cool to say. Now it's like it's like it's like, is it World Cup winning punk or not? So it's like two different sides in. It's a really, really awesome this e that he's like really performing, like liquid Popa excels. It makes me so excited. It gets me so happy. Oh, yeah. And I, I love that we can say, is World Cup punk but or no, like that. Just that that just makes me so happy pub. Boom is officially back. His first goal I thought was absolutely brilliant. He just rolled it to his left foot with like four or five defenders standing around him and then rocketed into the top left corner. And then tire game. He was just finding passes and and was doing what he was brought into. So I'm I'm fucking stoked and this is this is my personal opinion. I do not think Jose Marino should shovel this formation up. I think this is the formation that works best for Manchester United, having Papa and Fred and match in the midfield, and then you have marshy. Al rash, verd- lukarco upfront high. I think that top three of rashy do Kaku marshy. Al is just fantastic and better than any other type of starting up. Don't put Matta up. There don't put Sanchez up. They're gonna put guard up there. Let new coffee that Centerman to the two quick rash Vard's marshals on the outside and it worked brilliantly against granted. It was against young boys, but shit don't switch up formation. I mean, you gotta pay the troll toll to get to the voice whole. Am I right. That's very true. Thank you, Frank. I, I have not watched the new season of always sunny yet, and it's really pissing me off because everyone I'm trying to avoid spoilers. But like. Anyway, shell to date, man and always sunny. Like, dude, I got like so excited for you guys. Arshi all starting Litz book a go, and he looked great, and and he was smiling at point. So that's, that's promising. I'd like such a serious face. It's like weird. He has like is serious face, like dude, like kidney, like any like chill out. Like please, it's the guy at the party, like dude, just have a beer like just please like you're being like way too stuck up right now. I don't know. It's the damn French's. Men Marchelle looks super pissed off all the time, the dodgers hair blue and you know what? Finally, it's working for Manchester United and one more personnel heaps praise on wrote quick. Before we end this podcast is DO go Deloitte the seventeen year old Portuguese of rightback played for the first time this year. And the dude is fucking fantastic. The dude reminds me of Kyle Walker. He reminds me. Me of young Antonio Valencia. The dude is up and attack all the time, and he's playing crosses like here in trip. And then he had a couple of shaky moments a forward from young boys cut too quickly. Any fell in fell on the ground look stupid. But other than that super promising debut for Deloitte and I want this team to stick together moving forward, stop switching up the formations because that is what rates have a team stick with the big gun stick with what works and this team works, and we saw it against the young boys. Hopefully we see it again this weekend and throughout the competition. Exactly. I was very, I felt really good. I perceived back to back wins by Manchester United. Yeah, which is like, you know, it's good to say now like us to be able to say that like all the time, but like seeing back to back wins for manned you. It's like, you don't like as much as like, man, you like a rival to arsenal of with. Soccer is Premier League is better when Manchester United is good. You know what I mean? When you have this blue bloods staple franchises were mentioned. United has been the face of the Premier League for the past lake over almost three decades. Now, it's good to see them doing well, you see what I'm saying. Oh, yeah. And I feel like I feel like every time I watch manches knotted I am concerned and it was no different this game always concerned that there is going to be a problem. We talked about it yesterday where it almost seems that had certain part in the game they tend to switch off. So if you not in fixes that aspect of it and boost the defense, and I think United can eventually get a pretty damn far into this competition and in the domestically really challenge for the title, everything just needs to be tightened up because you're not. They were on a downward fall for the past three years for years. And this this season did not start off area. Well, but these past two, three weeks, it's showing the United that can be an, I genuinely fucking hope that it is. Well, I mean, let's go, we'll guys sick. You so much for hanging out with us. For Champions League recap. We voted do this with our Premier Li preview for week six, but we couldn't because we suck talk too much. So we're actually gonna continue this podcast.

LADS#209 - NEW YEAR NEW LADS

"You know you this thing of a Competitor Morten Frazier and we are allowed. Americans Americans discussing soccer better known as labs ads. Today is Wednesday January eighth twenty twenty mar are in happy New Year Buddy first podcast at the new year new me baby ancient proverbs. We made it baby. Oh man who who would think who would have thought we would have made it this far doing this show not me Paul. Rudd not me So Martin I you know we have carol bow and FA Cup to talk about. But I really don't give a shit and I guess you really don't because what happened to Manchester United today but I really could not give a shit about talking about the Caravelle Cup besides is like Everton losing to an under twelve side that Liverpool put out everything cannot be Everton. What's everything can't be Liverpool for Shit? No matter what side is put out there and honestly I just don't i. Is it like it used to be like the arsenal. Fa Cup trophy and it used to mean a little bit the past couple of years but even like I feel like the last time mattered was when Arsenal beat Chelsea against Antonio Conte when it felt like they had no shot of winning it. Do these do you even care about these competitions anymore. We've said this for years Care About Cup is is quite genuinely worthless like imagine just a you should competition engineered to give more TV time depression and there you go. It's it's the Care Belco. I mean there is really zero reason to the have a third Competitive tournament in the program. Right now it just doesn't make sense. I know every single other the league does it. But it's it's really stupid and for all these coaches I mean clopping Marino especially complaining about Just the insane schedule that Soccer soccer players have especially over the Christmas break I have a great idea instead of having a little winter break for the soccer players instead of Shortening the season. Just get rid of the Caravelle Cup. Nobody gives a fuck about it. the FA Cup. Yeah I mean I mean FA Cup. Yeah cool I guess it has some history but the fact of the matter is no one really gives a shit about the FA company more. I mean Silverware silverware but since arsenal has just dominated aided that that competition in recent history and like you said that Arsenal Chelsea game and we watched that in a bar in Philly I mean that was bad ass and then since then you feel like I've been on a slide I just have cared less unless unless about Method especially with the likes of city city just winning all both years. So Oh it's all you know. Once again a wordless competition so Kept I think we said it before we started podcasting. Don't really WanNa talk about it. It's not exciting exciting I. It's not that fun Martin. US talking about it is about is about as much of a waste of time as them playing it. I feel as though that you know the NFL's trying to fix overtime. Rules were fixing the long premier league season right. Now get rid of the League Cup. It's doesn't matter anymore. There's not not going to be some Cinderella Story. Just how top heavy the Premier League is. Can we just can we just get rid of it. I'm just you know it's just not entertaining. Meaning I mean KLOPP literally put out. I think that was for the FA Cup right against Everton under was that care about. I don't even know I don't care I don't care. They're always he's mid week while I'm working. I can't watch them. And when I do catch the highlights on my sick I got to watch that new What's it called the new Asian Guy that Liverpool God Min the momentum? I don't know his name. I already sick I watched this highlights. He was sick I it's like some players some really six starts I really I don't I don't care I don't I don't and I think you're exactly right. No winter breaks. Just give us what we want. Get rid of that and like to less international breaks and I think we fixed world soccer especially in Premier Li Kevin. We can fix everything like if we put our minds to it and submit this shit too fica. Any smart person would just accept these changes and be like Yo. These two drunk idiots are right. We don't need another worthless competition. Let's get rid of. It's the same with V. A. R. if there was a smart person in that room and they just look at the evidence locale shouted as a smart person would just get rid of it but there's no smart people in footballing organizations apparent but I will say About the whole long seasons and coming up with some ideas is to shorten the season in short the fatigue for the players. I I really don't give a shit about their fatigue. I want to watch as much soccer as possible. So has had the longer seasons. You know just just keep it a year round thing. That's all I care about. Let me watch as much soccer as possible and I know these competitions. Fa Cup and and the League Cup which is now known as the Care About Cup or Pretty Shite Are Starting to get more worthless. But soccer's falcons soccer. So so I'M GONNA turn it on. I watch my mind lose. I'm GonNa Watch my team draw so I'm okay with not talking about it but still watching Martin. Let me propose something to you and this has. It's been bothering me for some time. Okay so two weeks No this is actually. I've never brought this up to you but this has been something sitting just nestling in the back of my mind and I say simmering simmering. This might be a heartache. But I hate the thirty eight game season because I hate that. It's a weird even like I wish it was forty like you know why it's it's thirty eight. I know Sikwan eighteen and you can't play each other. You can't play yourselves twice. You'd be sick if you good player reserve team. And they're they're goes forty games this season but you know maths. Let's just double the season and seeing the way all right listen to me. I don't give a shit about math. What I'm saying? Is We make the season thirty eight. Plus thirty eight seventy six okay. So we make the season seventy six and just get rid of the FA Cup up Caravel Cup and just replace it with more premier league. I'm yeah I'm one hundred percent down with that or or make forty and you just put your major arrival twice or one one more game at home in a way or you bring in twenty one teams and there you go. You're at forty teens or forty games. I- auctions options to fix that. I'm you know I'm just brainstorming. Here I might be an idiot which I am but I'm coming up with ideas. I don't want I wanNA smarty idiot Joe Joe Schmo homes the guy if you come up with something okay anyway so that was talking. Fa Cup and Care About Cup They happened they're going to continue to happen And Yeah I mean is there any major highlights from them. I know Man City men you played today. There's there's the whole stat that Bernardo Silva has more goals than Jesse lingered in the past two seasons then combined or something at Old Trafford. Now there's some saccone around more Jesse lingard which I'm sure you're absolutely loving about misselling guard and the only other major story I saw was the Liverpool Everton game everything else. I our Arsenal beat Leeds. Sick Nice Nice Nelson cool I I really like in our data are sick. That's been nice yet. Dude ARTETA's sick. I mean like we I Kinda Talk Shit on him on the spot on is saying that it's just another ex. Explain going back. He if he thinks he learned something from Pepa. Let's push us But the game against Manchester United I think the or so Manchester United Yala Bond And absolutely destroyed that Manchester United team in our data Shirley seems to have soaked in some Pet Guardiola Gordy older tactics through his beautiful head of hair So I'm just waiting for him to shave his head and become the next pet fraud ULA So big up Stewart Arteta for doing this type of turnaround for Arsenal and yet it's been real quick so let's not jump to conclusions but God damn it's a whole lot better than Aw emory's first couple games in charge and then on the flip side of things The really only coup Thing that I saw about the FA Cup this past weekend is Port Vale versus Manchester City. some Dude on Port Vale. Oh Tom talk should about yeah. Yeah fucking Pope Talk Shit about Johnstone said basically I know on the Fourth League Claire. I I know this but if I played Johnstone's ever we cannot bag forty goals this season and then he goes out and scores on Manchester City. The FA Cup carrying the baggage. They'd be the bag. The kids say yes. He talked shit and he backed it up. And one final thing a cheng-kuo during the Imbaba Sally after a deflected goal against Fourth Fourth League side. fucking super cool Weirdo sick you you showed them i. It's my God I can't Ah Legs in Janko but I just I don't get it sometimes like I prefer you. Just get back get the ball. It's let's move on Anyway there Worst some things. I've been meaning this week A big one that I loved Martin was World War Three memes and soccer. So I really don't I I don't know I'm not a smart man and I don't keep up with the news but something's going on in the Middle East and there were some great soccer memes news about US going to world war three Some of them included mean the boys check and Vr to see who got the kill a couple of others included someone tweeting back in two thousand sixteen. When trump got elected that you know it would only make sense if trump started world war three right before for Liverpool is going to win the league and it seems i? Is this man nostradamus. But I feel as though Gary Lineker also added tweet saying that he figured out a way for to stop Liverpool for winning the League it only be Donald trump or something like that. I don't know that much about what's going on but World War. Three names are pretty funny And that's what's the hot ticket going on right now Martin do you have anything to add to this. I I for a whole day of just twitter just being just filled with this and I mean just kind of half laughing knowing what's going on. Yeah I was Unusual Martin Fascist getting more and more pissed more award. Four three means I saw going on and I was posting them. Essentially I mean they're funniest shit my fav- was of of course the Dawn Versus Liverpool's season winning campaign. Like if that happens like odd vote for trump if trump can stop Liverpool from winning winning the League he has my vote. That's that's factor there But I I was just getting pissed off like you were about to. Maybe go into war. Three and overdoing is making means and laughing. Imagine Shit one or more like you. Bunch of fucking Weirdo. I damaged in real life. I think it's like nervous laughing. If we're being honest my cat is trying to jump on my laptop. Get Down Theodore okay. We're good And you know yeah. I think we're just making light of a very serious situation. It's the only way it's a coping. It's it's a coping mechanism for something. I don't really understand. So that's you know. Oh and I post them just trying to be like you know Like forrest Gump. Like things are happening around me and their events and I don't know what's really happening but I'm I'm there I am the forrest. Gump of posting memes Another major headline that hit the news. was was you Martin. I don't know if you heard about this Roma teenager Niccolo Zaino low. I don't know pronouncing that right Nola. Yeah I remember braehead that really sick strike in the Champions League. I think he had a really sick like individual goal but apparently he's been urging his mom to stop posting sexy sexy instagram sell fees. So yikes poor guy did. I can't think of a worse thing to happen to you if you're famous if your mom just jumps on that that fame train and instead of Sullen like cosmetics or or whatever famous MOMS do. I don't know she just posts sexy pictures on instagram. Like if vowed that my mom would be stripped of all technology and sent to a barren wasteland in the desert if I ever played for Roma and my mom started posing sets of pictures on on on instagram. She doesn't even have an instrument thankfully but holy Shit Whore Guy Absolute Fox but Iraq. It Sir you a rock. I know it's so funny because after I like Talked about this and posted this online. So many people are like oh definitely followed. Like they're not currently googling Zia Nola mom yes like one of the top Google searches right now. Poor guy just totally backfired for sure. uh-huh quit soccer. Just become more clues you had a good thing and you've lost it speaking world war three. You just gotTa go zero dark thirty on this and just stays stay out of the social media world for quite some bit Maybe just like spam your mom of bots like make a bunch of fake accounts in like spam and and like trying to get her account blocked. I'm trying to do I'm trying to be. Pr Team for Niccolo right now. what do you. What do you do your mom like Can you not as but there's also weird because he's saying his mom's hot right. ooh Yikes Yikes Yikes I. I mean it's it's real catch twenty two more marriage it is an and the worst thing like this guy is fucking twenty years old so he just must be absolutely mortified. Also my goodness I. Finally they just found some images of her Yeah you post away girl Girl Holy Crap. Honestly I think it's rather sexist of his son not not to you know I encourage all women to do what you know. I very body positive so I think it's actually kind of wrong with him. It's actually not very twenty. Twenty of VIM fucking. He's twenty years old and he ain't even following the rules of twenty twenty. I think them all for yeah so that that was a thing thing God I'm just really like there's not much soccer to talk about until we get to our previews for the weekend which will include the big match? which which is Liverpool Tottenham which? I'm very excited about But let me see what else is going on. Oh how about this Headline so entering into the stadium Cristiano Renaldo had was wearing an ipod shuffle. which didn't know would be news? But Hey ease wearing ten-year-old technology and then went on to score Hatrick Antrix so he's one of the few I posted a memo about this but he's not the only player but he's one of very few players who've scored a hat trick and the premier. Your League La Liga in Syria. I guess Alexis Sanchez is one. I think is Latin as well. What I posted was he was the only player but I was very wrong? Maybe whatever and I was like I'm not taking this down. I don't Shit but Yes but he is one of few players who have scored hat tricks in the Premier League La Liga in Syria. I'm sure he scored a hat trick in the Portuguese league. I don't know though I mean let's let's just take a flashback. Like he's he's. He's wearing an ipod. Shuffle which came out in two thousand nine. I think Rinaldo was peak Rinaldo in two thousand nine. He's just transforming back to the best of the best and You don't get much better than being one of very few To score and the three top leagues in the world. I think we can pretty comfortably say that Syria lally gun the Prim or the top leagues in the world. So fucking huge fucking shout to Ronnie for doing this shit at thirty four years old He's more machine than man at this point. I don't know what he's eating maybe children but he certainly has themselves Martinus and the I don't know man Rinaldo. I'm not as Dr. Yeah God. He's got like a Alex. Guerrero type doctor giving them like crazy Tom Exit. That's it honestly I have. We seen Alex Guerrero. Lately is seen him since the bust up with. Tom Embraced in. You saw what happened in Tom Brady this weekend so I think he's jumped ship. Maybe he's working his magic somewhere else. I don't know why we're another goat. Yeah but oh and show the money. He won the African player of the year. which is the biggest no Duh of all time I guess you said Salah or Maar. RS Bomb Yang. But I mean I feel like Monty Kinda ran away with that reward. Yeah I think that Montas is just. There's a reason that Real Madrid pushing hard to get his his signature in the in the past year. especially in this season that he's clearly been the best on All on Liverpool and one of the best in the primped primped itself. And if you go oh back for the previous three years of the African awards Mohammed Saleh Saudi-omani. NPR murky a bomb young and or Riyadh Moras appear on each one so It got they've got Nailed down to three players. and Luckily they're just God damn good so it's a toughie man it's tough and A huge congrats to him He's a he's just he's just like a force of nature. I'm into his on Real Madrid so I can start rooting for him right now. I am hoping for his demise but you know once he goes to Madrid. I'll be like this guy's pretty sick trade. We're does hazard moved to to dude hazard. Socks Madrid he does and also shuttle th. This is a weird aside. Benza is fucking still very good. I think no talking about Ben Right now. Ben Simmons on fucking terror we kind of like he kind of to get rid of. Yeah right it just needed to get rid of Rinaldo in and reclaim that spotlight and I mean he's he's pushed out their record signing Jovovich this summer. I'm Jovic is barely playing because cream just paying an Angola's left and right and You know for missing out on the World Cup squad in twenty six or twenty seventeen he's bang back with no Rinaldo no-one to really lead this team with exception of Sergio. Ramos Veron Cruz Luga module which Gareth Bale He's stepping stepping up. He's stepped in the fuck up so huge. Shout out to that Frenchie. Yeah Tony Cruz is looking better now. We're a league podcast. No but I just want to give like like just a quick shot out the cream. Benza is did Rinaldo handicap ends Did you hold him. Did did Rinaldo hold him back. Probably yeah probably yeah worth it Okay is there. Is there anything else I feel like this is going to be short show We got a lot more to talk about with our preview and bets for the weekend and I really didn't come prepared for the show so which which is fine But is there anything else that we may be missing Marin before I move into fan questions Yeah I mean I think that one of the kind of not on the pitch stories stories is a statue in Mammo. WHO team has been defaced multiple times since it was for like the Iraqi of time? Yeah Yeah and now. They've so they've cut off his nose. They've sprayed Spray paint on it. And now they've put a rope around it and and just like Saddam Hussein. I'm saying they literally pulled his statue three and again it never leaves us. It's not leaving any time soon. So that that that shit's crazy and If y'all go no the reason behind his childhood club fans protesting him. It's because he bought shares in their rival clump yet taught fucking the shit that goes on Wall Street and stuff. He did that Shit with a robber club. Now they're all for on a fit and you know what I'm on the fan side. You don't do that show. Yeah and he also joined AC Milan so welcome home. I guess I guess that's major news which is kind of a a similar? WanNa just doing desperate moves all over like they're just like they're just a mess and I feel so bad for our good friend Rui at the Red card report. WHO's a massive? He seemed Fan and other lawn fans you might be listening to the show you guys are just doing desperation shit at this point just I feel like just to hold off the fans This club seems to have no direction and I don't think buying a thirty six year olds. Latin is going to do much. I mean I I'd I I but I did not expect him to go to Milan at this point but that just seems to be the state of this club. Bob Yet did I I do think it's a desperation move and I do like the reason that slot and gave for joining as as long as he basically said I've won my trophies of. I've gotten plenty of money. What I want now is a real challenge and You know what he is certainly embedded himself open a Should House we have a situation. So it's going to be old ask a lot and can turn this around Well Martin Mike. My question to you is is Syria retirement league. I mean if we're Nado and he's old retired he's old but he just scored a Hattrick Rebury Florentina I I I always forget about him. I keep thinking he's retired. I keep thinking he's retired at with Aren Robin but I guess not Greenwich He's blinked Fiorentina's WHO gives a shit? Yeah I don't give him but uh with that being said out of the other two leagues that That we haven't mentioned a fucking goons Lita and the French Farmers League cereal all is number three on the list of the top six leagues in the world. So they're right in the middle. Half retirement have competitive the nice low spaghetti sauce of players. As if you will some knocking What new fucking Inaki? Yes are watching Sopranos for the third time. Okay okay Let's move on to fan questions before we do that. We did get a bunch of stickers and I know thirty people like over thirty different people from the facebook book. The instagram twitter The Discord Channel All reached out. gave me your addresses and stuff like that. Send them out. I have not send them out. I'm a piece of Shit Shit. I know that I'm going to do it by the end of this week. I was like. Oh Yeah I'll send them out today. Huge Liar. I'm sorry I just haven't found the time I really still don't know how how to send things by mail so I'm trying to I'm trying to learn. How does how stamps work and so once I figure that out I will send the mail well? Hopefully I'm doing stand up this week. I've to other podcast now. Not Not to Brag but I'm just saying I'm sorry this is my. This is my youtube apology. Logan Paul apology. I'm sorry Logan Paul. Yeah well yeah get into some questions dog. Yeah I I hope he fights Antonio Brown anyway. let's go to fan questions. I fan questions come from our instagram. At lads underscore podcast first question comes from John Seaman. Ninety two he says what's your New Year's resolution. Oh Martin do you have one on in. Do you believe in them. You wouldn't be. I feel like you don't give a fuck about New Year's resolutions no not really My family has a tradition where we eat mashed potatoes black eyed peas and SAUERKRAUT On New Year's so Lucien fucking Ukrainians been weird chip but go on. I don't care I don't care I didn't make a new year's resolution allusion amid myself a January Resolution kind of I I Am Doing Dry January on but stuck with that being said it's it's there's a little astro. There's a caveat there where it's not true dried January. I'm just not buying any liquor beer if it's somehow ends up with me then you know all's fair in Love War I'll drink the shit out of that like Underpin Gangland tonight and and The reason I'm drinking it is because I bought it for my youngest brother on when he was home from college and he forgot it at my house so it's now mine and So kind of doing a half dry January honestly this kind of what else you. It's a financially sound resolution. I guess I yeah. You're just a moot for a month I I I can get behind it My resolution is I think the resolution I came up with was to be less passive because I feel like a lot of people like I'm really like a people pleaser and I try and please everyone wants Johnson. I over plan and say oh I can do this. I'm like no I'm just GONNA chill ow. I'M GONNA go watch Something on netflix aches. No thank you you so I think that was my resolution to be less passive and a pushover and try and like you know. Make more time for me. That's it's GonNa be. That's my new year's resolution so I'm pretty pretty stoked on it but if Martin was like hey we need and this right now I probably yeah sure but Right now okay okay okay. That's that's best for you. Okay all right next question. See Beers. Seven says does Martin at K. Mart Marin Reply K. Mart K. Mart since are they around Shit Dude Avenue K. Mart since the Giraffe in the middle of the store and I used to buy Legos from what was the last time I was at Kmart. But don't work there. Okay no confirmed. I wish I did actually kind of sick because it'd be like kind of like a weird trashy pickup blind and then you'd be like what they still exist and then you're in that's all that's all that's all. He needs to rare job to have honesty like a specialty job. Yeah it's like What's it called the The white great white buffalo of jobs. So it's pretty pretty pretty good next one one Sam June pretty pretty pretty good Sam June two one. Seven says Fuck Paul. Paul GPA. Not a question but I feel like Martin would agree. Yeah man I mean if Y'all been longtime listeners of of the show depend defended Paulie His entire time Manchester United by about a month into the season. I'm just absolutely sick of him and You know he's he's got that whole injury. Excuse I mean let's fucking Grove set boy And he really doesn't offer that much to Manchester United. When he's on the pitch is featured six is times in total this year but he's perfectly fine? Go into Weddings he's perfectly fine dancing with babies and he's perfectly fine doing his bullshit social media Shit Shit so yeah paw-paw can go fucking self right to Real Madrid I think he's a plague to this club and Him and Neymar are the picture. Perfect representation Asian of how shit modern football so. Yeah I'm right there with you. Did Fuck Fuck fuck it. It's a man or gentlemen lad lad That's all we picked last people forget. We're we picked it because of the gender gender neutral that's why we picked it Next question comes from Sweeney Junior. He says one player. You liked each of your teams to buy this January Martin O.. Did I've been shouted dreaming. It saying saying it whispering it than anyone who listen If I had to choose wanted to be Jackie I absolutely love that boy. I mean with his short Shin Guards his fucking bad as hair and then not to mention. His style of play is so energetically creative and beautiful. He he just looked like he's floating with the ball. Always finds the right pass creates a ton of space for his teammates himself. the defenders. It doesn't matter if he's going up against city defenders Liverpool defenders or Shit Club like United Defenders. He's GonNa find a way to force that ball where he wanted to go any just scores. Some World Lose Jackie boy come to the United and my Second Choice Maya backup prom. Date is James Madison. He does everything that Jag Jag. Grilles does but is a touch more expensive but also a touch more proven. Oh and I don't think Jack Reliable ever leave Aston Villa which I respect to the bottom my heart. So those are my two wish-lists wish list players. What about you do? I would just like a centreback. Just one Hayes. Asia finally any type of defender I really love that bad ass. Turkish dude I can never pronounce his name on. Lester who looks like Lord Farquaad But he's a bad ass Cy Young to thank you. I was going to try and go for it but a nope wasn't gonNA go. But yeah he I don't think he's GonNa be leaving Leicester Anytime any time soon. But he he if I if I could pick one it'd probably be him because he's pretty pretty sick Next question Boyd M Riley says is one transfer for each of the traditional top six plus other interesting teams last year in Everton We did menu and Arsenal so we can just hop around quick big Liverpool. Pretty Sound Man City need better defenders Probably a new center defensive of mid would probably be nice They use like a cool Bali which will be really good for them. But I don't think they'd get him like the summer for you. Know like ninety million dollars or something Chelsea I feel like they need a striker. So who's the Guy Well yes what's his name just went to Dorfman the the really. What's it called? What's the guy from Dorfman who just All fucking Uh aw from Australian Oh early early in Holland I got. Yeah yeah he would have been really good like you would have been good for Chelsea. They need like a good striker. I'm trying to Marin you go ahead is are you in terms of the top teams. What do you think needs what Liverpool who doesn't need shit and they do need to stop complaining about their lack of debts because they have plenty of it Manchester City. Like you said. I think that they need a top-class. The defender on especially with the retirement of Vincent Company on the Injury Report and the realization that Johnstone's and ultimately you're pretty dog shit also Mendis Pretty Dog Defense Defense Defense. For Manchester City Cutler. Bali is obviously one of the best defenders in the League but I could also see them. Go for a just giant Lyndon aimed like a veron or Martinez Because those those guys are just out of this world good end. Manchester City regularly breaks the bank to do that. Shit so I think that is centered. Defender is definitely one of their targets on for Arsenal. I mean I think you hit the nail on the head you still need a defender For Chelsea I'm GonNa go opposite direction. I think that they're attack as bad as a love. Tammy Abraham as their a sole striker I love Their wingers they kind of do a little shuffled switch around each time the play whether it's Mason Mount Will I am Pedro Christian Pulisic. I think they're pretty settled up front. I think VINITA fucking goalkeeper because Kappa is dodge it. I'm all about that. Train and and Donham Tottenham I think I think needs a midfielder a better midfielder the option than Sasako I think that they really shit the bed. WHEN THEY LEFT LEAD MOUSSA DIM Bayliss Lee for China last year? I think he brought a whole lot to that team. In terms of the tenacity and skill in the midfield to suck of justice not assess Vigils linked up Toby Alta water water water water water water water with a law global Until two thousand twenty three John is obviously solid Davidson Sanchez You'd get what you get with him and They're wingbacks are pretty the damn good Gazzaniga I mean he's he's a decent backup who knows if he goes ever GONNA be the same. So I think Tottenham definitely focus on that midfield gender in their attackers obviously damn good Offend hit all the top six limoges throw in Leicester for shits and giggles I'd say they need a all Mansi Love Lester and I think all the players in that team in each position are so good but obviously There's improvement for each one. But I I think that chemistry so good between Peres Jamie Vardi James Madison Harvey FUCKING DOC in. What's that other school that I always think of Harvey Something Harvey Barnes Benca while your retailers? I think this is a bad as team Amo so I guess you would just go for improvement in a certain position and this is just because this is the worst player on the pitch in my opinion Johnny Johny Evans are getting better defender. Yeah I think I think it was all around pretty good. That was a pretty loaded question. So yeah where do you go Martin. I'm you know now thanks to Doodoo. I'm next question Sped Lucas says too hard. Can I just like come up to Boston. Get up here soon. All right Sped Lucas says Is Veron underrated World Cup winner. four-time Champions League winner in Virgil van. Dyke is considered sittard. A goat defender Muslims it's a mix of underrated versus overrated and Braun has has Obviously proven himself in leagues in international play and in our club international play while Virgil vendex on his second season of being great. I'm so I I guess you can call them. Underrated Seeing as he is literally two months younger than me and a four year younger than Virgil Van Dyke and yet he's been performing coming at the top level since he was eighteen years old he benched pepe at eighteen for that. For God's Sakes so yeah Rafael Verona's criminally underrated. I Know Kevin and I said for quite some time. And we've come up with our lists of best defenders in a world of Ron has been on it so yeah I think he's. It's it's a a mix of underrated versus recency bias. I mean if one person does great in front of your eyes and you watch him every week and he does great we just you. You laugh all the praise on that man while ignoring this proven superstar that is ron so yeah he's damn good doesn't get the respect that he deserves. Yeah I it definitely agree. I feel like we have so much of a Premier League bias especially US and we're not seeing Bertel Dyke is. I believe the best defender in the world. I feel as though variety and gets you know not as much shy because you know we're Real Madrid face Real Madrid for so long was Renaldo. The face of Liverpool is really Virgil Van Dyke which is weird for it to be a defender so yeah I think Veron is underrated And he shouldn't be because all the things that we've already spoken about so it was kind of a shame but I feel like they were very different players but he made he kept Rama's under control which is a feat. That should be also another accurate for itself. So I feel so. He Made Rama's who is definitely in the Klein He covered his ass quite a bit. So next question goes to J.. He says twenty twenty team of the year predictions breakout players. Have a gray season. ooh So I feel as though team of the year twenty twenty. We'll have some of the suspects. Maybe a few different. I feel like some locks will be messy Mugabe I feel like the front three lake. Monte is well with the left wing like that will still be very consistent And then in terms of midfield midfield I feel like that's where it gets midfield and defence might get a little tricky I've you'd have to have Virgil Van Dyke and Veron that we spoke about And and then you can do the left and right wing back Liverpool. I'm pretty much re saying the twenty one thousand nine so marinas are any. What bring up players? Can you think of the top of your head that will really come through. I think erling Holland will be You know probably candidate as well. Yeah I mean I. It's it's kind of a loaded question because we kind of already know so who the fuck is going to be on the twenty twenty year Because it's it's usually the same people every single year So literally just going through breakout stars. I think James Madison is certainly on that list in the midfield and like I'm I'm not saying that James Medicine is anywhere close to being as good as as as the players who would normally dominate a team of the season. So I'm literally just going for breakout stars Early Holland definitely The guy that fucking Liverpool ever pull just bought I I can't pronounce Werner Werner Thou good one team Warner for sure for sure And I leave this another other. Criminally underrated defender Joshua Cambridge is going at once again for Byron Munich And then so you don't you. I'd put him on. My underrated. Underrated breakout player of the of the season. And then kind of moving into a la Liga Martineau to guard and yes real socio associated dad killing the likes of Yemen fucking road off for three years and he's having a great season so I'd love to see him on. That breakout two of the year. And then you know our I think Dean Henderson on Sheffield United has just really made a name for himself. Same with a guy on On a Crystal Palace Both goalkeepers have really made a name for themselves as as solid number ones for their team. So I think there's a whole bunch of them and it's the seventh day of twenty twenty. So can we put off our predictions for the twenty twenty team of the year for just uh just a little bit longer guys. Seven days in we don't have to predict yes. I just need to breathe. God I'm already like just you know over the ethics halfway through the season. Let's just wait till we hit seventy percent. Yeah let's then I can be like okay. I feel more comfortable answering this question. Russian all right. Let's do some lightning questions. Jason Levin Seventeen says toss a coin to your witcher with a question mark. I I would just say Emmy Martin have texted about this. The witcher's fucking awesome Henry. Cavill fucks that man fucks like like literally too. I mean he fucks in the show. But it's it's a spoiler but the witcher's amazing so when I texted you about this curve A week ago have you seen the witcher I forgot. I texted you that because I think I was drunk. And you responded yes so good and I hated it at first I absolutely hated it and I kept saying it was like it's only cut scenes. All it is is cut scenes a no action. It's all dialogue. I was really being little snoot about it and You know since then I've watched for episodes of it and let me just say say It's it's bomb it's bad ass. It's really cool. But the most impressive thing to me is Henry. cavill sounds just exactly like Gerald barreled into video games like the voice acting his his impression of Jarrell is bought fucking on terrifies me and I think that's even his build like how he's built. Yeah and I just finished the witcher three and actually just did a podcast. Lower the games talking about the creatures of a good check it out on nineteenth quick plug Anyway yeah I after spending eighty plus hours on wild hunt and I haven't read any books but I thoroughly enjoyed Loyd the witcher. I finished it Sunday night. And it's it's awesome it literally a a kind of jumps around in time line and stuff like that but I feel like it rewards you for paying attention and then it kind of wraps up really really nicely. So that that's that's all I'll say any who were moving on the twitter at lads ads underscore podcast. First question comes from the soccer. Knew he says are you guys really back or is an odd fever dream. No were very back Surprise predictions for twenty twenty season. This is the same He has three questions. So we'll just do this Any surprise predictions for this. You're Marne even though you said you don't want to predict anything for twenty twenty not yet No I am refusing to partake in twenty twenty the predictions in the seventh day. Twenty Twenty No. I will not partake name or goes back to Barcelona. That's my. That's my one thing ooh hazard gets kicked out of Real Madrid. I don't know I I could see it. I see I see facts. Facts only podcasts. Gas in his last questions are odds of Houston and or Orlando getting relegated. MLS teams can't get. Oh Down with Dan with teams from cities built on swamps. I wait what I don't am I stupid. Do not understand the question slowly Kevin. Okay okay odds of Houston and or Orlando getting relegated. Down with teams from cities built on swamps. What hold on? Okay let me think about this. Hold on I put up twitter. I'm reading this okay. ODDS ODDS OF HOUSTON and or Orlando getting relegated. Down with teams from cities built on swamps. Am I we're we're my. Are we both stupid eleven. I what he wants. I know I want. I want to give you one soccer new view essay but I got it. I got him and and I didn't even think Emma's teams got relegated. So first off. Zero I guess. And for swamps boost swamps. I I do not know this but Shrek yes I mean Fuck Orlando. I have been always a big or Florida. Hater from my my ex and could give fuck about Orlando but All right next question at Maj.. Will Six At Matt Wilson says. Who Do you see the top? Six as the seasons and will spurs united to be able to hold out and wolves will spurs find any consistency under Josie. Or do they need a couple of transfer windows and an off season to regroup Top six at the end of the season do that first and then kind of answer the question Dan I of Liverpool city I'm going to say Chelsea Tottenham Arsenal Manchester United. You want me to answer. Then you WANNA address the second part of the question or or do you wanNA address that way. Now I change it. 'cause no I doubt I'M GONNA go Liverpool Man City Leicester Her Chelsea Spurs United Yep that's that's doing it. I second forgot about Lester. And how good they're doing. I don't know why it is totally just blacked out for a second that'd be that'd be my top six our minds it's unfortunately Liverpool Fool Liverpool City Leicester United Chelsea Tottenham at. That's my top six uh-huh someone someone write that down. Yeah tell us what our and yeah come the end of the season. Let us know what we said back back on the seventh day of Twenty twenty. Because I'M GONNA keep saying that it sounds like a medieval. Tom's J. of twenty twenty it was written in the mountains on the seventh day. It sounds very biblical. I kind of like it Wall Spurs and united to hold out Sheffield and Wolves Charlotte Sheffield and wolves. Because I I love that both these teams go up against every top sixteen not giving a fuck they literally go. They like like other teams Who usually be these mid table team? Struggling being in would try and be all defensive. These seems go balls out I love Sheffield I love walls. And what they're doing and Spurs Josie. We'll be able to get them under control. I definitely think they're going to need to transfer window to get a have any chance of like being like a true consistent top four contender not title contender. But yeah that's obsessive shit. What fucking Shit? Iranian air force taking off from its base based on word taking off from bases in The Arab Emirates and Shit books. I it should looks fucking scary man. Oh three Dr Soccer Laura. We're we're three back to okay shit man so many good memes. That are going to be coming from this. I can't wait but Yeah what do you think I I think that there are three teams Three you know like I guess you could call them. Mid Table teams that really take it to the top six teams each time they play and Sheffield Wolves at Manchester United do that three midtable teams taking it to the top and if only they could find some consistent consistency I do not think Manchester United knows knows what consistency means main one week. We'll be good. One Week will be beating Manchester City on the next will be absolutely dominated by ARTETA's TATA's arsenal And if you look at you know their stats win win. Loss loss loss win loss. Draw and there. There just ain't no consistency. I do think that if they're not able to break into the top four at the end of the season that is exactly. Why do they have shown the talent to be gable to compete in the top four but there is no consistency incent talent for the wolves and and Sheffield? You know it's it's the question as old it's time you know candies teams keep it up And and we ask or so aims of research. Can I keep it up. It's it's a question that goes farther than just football it does it does Iraq's my brain I you know just like me. I think that I think that wolves can keep it up and also just like me I do not thin Sheffield can keep it up. Look they're having a yeah. It's on off days. We've been there on day. We've all been there. We've all been there kinda few drinks and just nothing you do. Yeah aw aw the fucking worse I was GonNa say Best I just past the fuck out now. Actually I'm getting to the next Yeah that sorry sorry. I'm old now all I do. I want there's not that I just shake my head I'm like it's it's not gonNA happen. Life's life man.

The Bundesliga starts up again on Saturday. So having a little bit of a deep dive into what we can maybe expect from those games very excited us in the next two seconds after that. We'll take a look at what's happening around. The world of football applicant at some of the news. That's coming out with various different leagues around the world and the penultimate part of of focused on the transfer market. What Room is not GonNa vote? They wear various different. Players are GONNA win dope the end of all of that we are going to be continuing I'm calling around the world in eighty soccer moments in this week. We're going to have the hand of God game against a England versus Argentina. And then we're also going to look Nineteen Fifty World Cup game between England and the USA. So I think that's going to be absolutely plenty. We'd love to get involved The best way to do that is via social media was at GS MC underscore soccer on twitter and instagram. We'd love to hear your comments anything that he's raised during this podcast and also if there is anything that you would like for us to raise as well we want this to a pretty interactive situation around here so I think with that will move straight Tom so I I part which is all about live football. I have to say this actually pretty difficult doing a podcast when his no reliable so I am delighted that we got some gains. Let the I league in your to emerge from the lockdown after the corona virus is there are eleven games left on previously on wounded league. We left it with that. All the teams playing twenty five Games which means eleven games left in eighteen eighteen seemly by Munich top right now on fifty five points with Russia Dortmund four points behind them on Fifty One rb Light Sig there on fifty points just one point behind. Bouche dominant with a Russian Gladbach. Only that on forty nine points by Leverkusen on thirty seven points on insists shelter that on thirty seven points. So there's a little bit of a gap between fifth and sixth but there are only six points between the top four teams. Which are the Champions League positions? Only two points from there via Leverkusen. So it's all really nicely poised and actually really disappointing. When this League Hudson you take a little hiatus for all the CORONA VIRUS PRECAUTIONS. You might very well be interested in looking at some live. Sokha don't really know too much about the Bundesliga on maybe even looking to adults eighteen. You may be very interested to know as well. There are quite a few young American players that are involved in the those Lita we can we catch and before we can get into the before we get into the previewing of all of the different games this weekend. I thought it might be nice to just have a quick. Chrissy of the clays who are claiming that trade in Germany the come from the USA involved the US national saint probably the most prominent that the moments is Weston mckennie. He plays that shelter on. He's getting a really regular game right now. In the Central Midfield Fellas only twenty one. He's made sixteen starts this year on the only reason he's not played in all games is the term. He's been injured. David Wagner his head coach. Who USED TO BE FOODS? Hone a couple years back. He really racing. And he's being one of the absolute mainstays shock. Midfield this time rain so he can play. Basically anywhere across midfield is even been pressing to playing from every now and again so. He's very highly thought of so shelter may very well be one of the teams that you think okay. That might be interesting to maybe start supporting them. There is other options to go Raina. Who is the son of Claudio Reyna? Who USED TO PLAY ONS? Manchester City and Sunderland in the primarily like in the nineties maybe early two thousands his son is Brocha Dortmund. He's midfielder and he's been getting more more gain time. You played in the Champions League in the knockout stages corn on a soap fellas only seventeen years old and he's getting more and more opportunities so if this weekend we and watching the Russia domine gain. He's more likely to come on as substitutes so look out for him. The other options. We've got Tyler Adams. He's RB Leipzig. He's only twenty one years old. He's made like a handful of of starts again at a very fledgling career in the Bundesliga. It's been the failure fortunate for him because he was getting a game and then gone injury but because Sudan so well the manager that was love to mess around with that formula and so found his opportunities to combine. Shall we say pretty? Well regarded oppy Leipzig the goalkeeper for the US national seeing Phil's Decided UPON REALLY ANZAC. Stephan has played in most of the significant gains the US men's national. Same he's actually on loan from Manchester City right now on playing at Fortuna Dusseldorf. He's doing really well. A Horse of this nature of her muscle go doing right now. It means that he's actually making a lot of saves so he's definitely getting these practice in. He's only twenty five and in terms of a goalkeeper. Sir No particular age really. He's been trusted to do. Do a really good for the full off since he's been brought in from Manchester City Vertebra M-. You've got Josh Sci. He's a striker and he is being given plenty caps for the men's national team just recently he's played in the eighteen games mostly coming on his so probably again only h twenty. So there's plenty time. Have his game to develop the drone. Might be an option for you if you're looking for a team to support that Scott Sir. Us contingents in the John Brooks. He plays Wolfsburg. He's a sense of black. He's a pretty well experience these days now and has been will co for the US a surprise inclusion by Klinsmann the last time the US qualified for that so he's pretty Established that he's played sixteen gangs. This year for Wolfsburg Fabulous. Johnson said you might know from that. He's a he's a winger plays Russia Russian. Gladbach doing pretty well this year From difficult really to get bucking into team. Has that doing pretty well swell Timothy Chandler. He's entre Frankfurt's middling season. This Alfred Morales to Fortuna Dusseldorf. There are plenty of the ones. We've run out of time a little bit so they go some options there are plenty of. Us Men National Team members are Playa Trade and the in the Bundesliga.

Live somewhere in the. Us IS A law games. There's going to be fixing total over the three days Saturday through through Monday. We start with probably the biggest game. It's between Russia. Dortmund and shelter is going to start on Saturday at six thirty. Pm Pacific Time. It's the raw region Dhabi. The Rivera Dhabi. I'm short. That's I was pronounced. It's the game this is going to be second versus sex. It's a tie game in the last eight games between these two teams. Brochu Dalton. Actually haven't done all that well only won once having drawn five five of those on lost two so the ability. The heck's over them shelter daunton coins to this or. This is super strange really at the idea of form coming into this. I'm not just totally dissipated. It's not even worth considering. I don't know because who knows what the standard is GonNa be where players are incentive. Fitness Dortmund actually came into this game having won seven of their last eight and so they were coming to this pretty on pretty hot fall and the did feel like both by Munich and Russia. Don't we're getting into that kind of final ruining fall things were clicking and looking good but even was before the break Goatman had won four this league games in a row and not been the first time all season that they doughnuts Holland and Sancho they have scored more goals combined than the entire? Shell Cotin in the entirety of the calendar year. Twenty twenty between between they have scored fourteen goals whereas Shell Cavani mice four and not sign. However it's a local Dhabi and as they say when you talk about local Dhabi's farm goes as the wind. Doubt it'll be really interested. Dortmund actually a few issues in midfield where vissel on enrich sham. Both picks up injuries quarterback training which must be disappointing for them. As we've mentioned before maybe Gio rain and might benefit from. That may be coming on soap on at some point during the game as for shelter. They are getting some injuries back with Sunday. On of the central defenders looking the most likely to be available for them. Yeah as we mentioned in the previous section Weston mckinney. He's the driving force in the field. And so expect him to play as well so really looking forward to that game. Probably the the pick of the fixtures. This week I suspect that sit Brochu dot dachshund in the title. Chase would not have picked this game as one of the first game biking because not always local people. They are also doing well in the league to so really looking forward to that. The next game I WANNA focus on. Is the gang between Avi Leipzig on Friday us? Also at six thirty the specific time that's going to be shown on Via D. N. So if you have access to a seat that's going to be in the spice language. Leipzig are currently in third. They are they. Were on a real roll humming. Just beaten sauntering Hotspur in the Champions League they were absolutely flying they had made that first ever quarterfinal in Champions League us for Freiburg. They stayed off okay in terms of the season on. They were challenging. They've kind of slid down since then boats they will also be. You know who knows? This is what I keep coming back to foam you. Non-existence at this point cohesion of passing and fitness. Who knows what's going to happen. Leipzig's form before the break wasn't actually all that great to be honest that only one to the previous seven they were very much in in the driving seat by Munich. Peg Black and four point lead during that time as well so at no. They're five points behind. They might have seen. The brake is somewhat never taking stock moment. They'll absolutely be delighted to to get going. And I may be looked into Smith wins. They win doing rights cannot say. He's sensible fitness. I think a lot of teams will have seen enough to get played back on the field. She plays suspended as well and unpredictable. He's got a back problem which May well see in out shelter just before the break and did a three much. Winless Run Beats Union Building. Three one last time outs. They expect a Gaza to overcome Fi. Strain basically GONNA be at full strength. This much against Leipzig The LAS game this time on this coming Saturday six thirty. Am Pacific. Time is going to be Augsburg. Because he's Wolfsburg Augsburg. They're on the cusp of kind of relegation. Let's just had a bit of a horrendous from just before the break having lost four the last five games. We'll spoke that looking to push into. Maybe the UEFA places for European competitions next year so plenty riding on his game on the most really do enjoy playing against Osberg. They recorded that greatest ever win on the final day of the season against Augsburg when they beat the night one They like playing them and invites Augsburg. Haven't beaten most booking this fixture in last four meetings. So they'll they'll be looking to try and solve Wolfsburg that actually only two games in twelve matches will just before the break. They put on a string of matches together while they were unbeaten in six again. They'll feel things of being turning around a little bit. Less less time rhymed Augsburg. They were beaten by buying Munich soon. Nothing I was a tight game. They kept quite titan. Not One if I remember correctly but yeah that they they are five consecutively Went nuts that cost management his job as head coach since then he's being replaced by the former. Leiva Kuzin coach. Ehrlich is the first much that he gets to look after them. So and yeah. They're in kind of learn the relegation mix right now so they made that change in order to make sure that they don't get more embroiled in all of that Wolfsburg. That pretty confident that scoring goals. I would expect to this game. Soupy a Wolfsburg win not by a great deal but again everything's open the average. Just who knows that? It's just it's impossible said all right. Let's take a quick break there when we come back. We'll look at the games that going to played on Sunday Monday in on this league.

In the last section. We looked at the early games that are going to be played in the Bundesliga. The six sixty games we're GONNA CONTINUE INTO THE GAME. That's being played nine thirty. Am on Saturday again. This is gonNA be on Fox. Sports is going to be on track Frankfurt Verses Borussia Moenchengladbach. She's always say the brush back in decent shape too. They are currently in fourth looking to consolidate that's that position Frankfurt however That kind of hovering above the relegation zone. Probably you know. They feel like they could do a few points just to feel better about themselves and maybe even push for European places they do have an actual pretty decent record at home against the top clubs. They actually pretty pulling away from home. They've got twenty one points at home and they've taken ten from twelve gains against the current top four. They'll probably going to this feeling. Pretty Confident of home phone version which England back. Pretty much being getting on with it. That's has been born from that. Pretty stringent defense on are currently the third best intensive goals. They too will feel pretty confident. Going away from home doing all right. We'll be going into their seventh win. Asked for Frankfurt's that really good stotts who the calendar year. Twenty twenty has sort of dissipated slightly since then I thin ten points from the first four games and Bundesliga this year. They've been having a few can issues up fronts. It's probably going to be the Portuguese player on the line for Frankfurt. I think bur- she loved by. We'll be looking to consolidate the fourth place here. A pretty solid win against Eintracht on Sunday at six thirty A. M. Pacific Time as the game between Cologne and Mites Cologne Cologne would've been fourth. Had just the Games from the Second. Half of the season became did so. They're actually pretty decent fall right night on a one five of their last six Bundles League home games. So I am. Not only loss was to buy Munich so that can be feeling pretty confident might however they lost all eight of the Games when they've conceded the first goal so clearly heads go down once they've conceded first time. It's an interesting Juan in terms of Cologne. They've gotten a fourteen point gap now between them relegation. That really looking to maybe. Close the five point gap to the European places. They're expecting catch to over Cohen Ankle injury to starts left back or as minds. They got real problems with the goalkeeper and the last game the first choice keepers Zentner. He was ruled out for the rest of the season. Because of a cruciate ligament injury which meant the person that he had replaced as first choice Mullah he's GONNA be reinstated for the rest of the campaign could be seen the list. Little bits of a mid-table kind of who has mice are still just hovering over those relegation places. So they'll really want to try that distance themselves from all of that should be game. Yeah that's at sixty on Sunday. Following that game on Sunday at nine am union Berlin host by Munich by Munich. Flying Right yeah. They're beaten in fifteen competitive games. Eleven which in this league they really pointing a bit of a run together and they currently have the largest league that they've Honda. The top of the pundits leaker all season. One of the reasons that they're right over there is the former Jabri. He's hits a he's he scored seven goals in his last ten. Bundesliga appearances I yet. He's got eleven all told with the Levin doffs Ski who is being just an absolute He's got twenty five goals. I mean there was a point at which The start of the season that he he went several games consecutively scoring goals just could not necessarily so. Yeah it could take have union and yet the coach Fisher. He's actually lost all. Three contestants have hot with by Munich. One of which was when he was in. Jaya viewer in the Champions League had a very successful season so far and sells on Komo for the first time in the puns leaker last year. They've very much being a surprise package. That got thirty points right now. Which very healthy return at this point in the season that probably looking actually more towards European places than they are at relegation fight which is As a newly promoted team really all you can ask for us. Oppose communities though the That striker tremble. He's kind of a little bit of a debt with a knee injury. Union billing were actually baked into him in return fixture earlier this season.

For All of those bits of feet by regarding the Bundesliga usually wouldn't go in too much detail. Is that book struggling for a ally football. So it's been nice to look into whether teams were then what to expect this weekend. It's been really nice to two previous of all half is when we come back in the next section of our look at the US throat the soccer world in the various different leagues. You're listening to MC soccer podcast brought to you by the jets MC called cast network. This is your ultimate stopper. Everything sports the Golden state media concepts or podcast. Should I say more from the NFL? Melby the NBA. To 'em it's all in here. Golden state media concepts sports podcast. Listen I all right. Welcome back and previous sections. We've looked at the prospects of the Bundesliga back this coin weekend. So that's been really fun to look ahead and Andrine. Some actual live soccer. What I what? I'm probably going to do to put his straight by to reality little bit risk. That how many of the League's approaching what's going on and the the prospects of those leagues starting up again. So we're going to stop with the Premier League. Which again I feel like. He's the bellwether for how things are going to proceed with this. There's so much. Money Riding on the Premier League being being finished I read that said the primarily even if they do start off the league gain because is overrun that they might very well all seavy companies a whole bunch of money people say what was three hundred million even if they do play the Games. The guidelines for training should be observed being announced today On on go through some of the major ones of those all the equipment calling flags have to be disinfected after each session and that means even the playing surfaces heard that Sir like spitting. That's a is fairly prevalent. Usually during games I'm going to be disallowed was well. These training sessions are going to be restricted. To seventy five minutes. And the hope is GonNa stop doing these all net Monday of next week. Of course they'll be ongoing observations of whether these are going to be held an say's there's GonNa be twice weekly testing. I'm not quite sure where that's coming from because I know that certainly in the UK they're for testing of the people on the front line south quite where that testing is coined from. Not Quite sure. There's also GONNA be a daily pre-training question at I'm and a temperature check which Some of the early indicators of whether you have the virus all NAS that going to insist upon in quotes meticulous personal hygiene. I'm D- I mentioned this last week. The use of PPA asked not to congregate in communist areas which include but not limited to medical rains in Jim Areas. So of her theories that will there's going to be any tackling during any of these sessions on that people are asked to move their face away during any kind of close interaction on Plainfield. I don't know how you train yourself to do that. I don't know plays Not Allowed to share transport to the ground of the training ground. Rather the upkeep of the facility has to be maintained scrupulously so this should be no group transport at all it's understood as well as the PSA which is the Professional Footballer's Union of heard from quite a few plays especially those that have got like him on the health concerns like Gasman things that's And from the communities as well those plays the involves backgrounds. The site seems to be that they are twice as likely to be at risk of the corona virus on that expressing real concerned about trying to get back to To training of the season continued. Danny rose the left back who plays no newcastle foam tall spur and Incurred England squad as well. He was talking about this idea of it being morale-boost for the country in he gave pretty short shrift in honesty. He said he's not that my votes morale at this point. He just wants to make sure that he stays healthy. I think not set a view echoed by a few people as well. I think including rains stealing so obviously the PF air involved in all of these things. The Professional Footballers Association In constant contact with all of these different health screening initiatives and the government has to approve all of these different things to in order for the next stage to be approved on a date for possible combat to be agreed upon in other news as well the chief of police in the Greater Manchester area which includes. Where am I just to sit him? Manchester United Play. He has expressed concerns about why he called. Tricky fixtures has Liverpool going to be in tuned? Pretty soon playing. Just the city. And what's probably not gonNA be securely it's not gonNA decide to what you don't think but it's still a big game between the current hose of the title end the whole elect. He said that that would definitely without any shuttle without attract crowns to the ground. Coolies fifty five miles away from. Rochester is not a great distance. It's all armed. He said that should needs to be very very careful. Thinking through these that right really. So what's the timeline? For All of this in England on Thursday which is when this podcast due to be released the Premier League and the Football Union GonNa meet about the medical protocols and see whether they can agree on that there's also going to be a meeting between the football authorities on the culture secretary from the government to see what's the plan is lacking get approved. There is then a meeting the following Monday with all of the owners of the Premier League clubs and That is also a day that they hope that training will resume in training rains. The this quite a few big dates coming up in all make sure the the stages will be observed. Uefa sets a deadline of May twenty fifth for all the leagues around Europe to have a plan finalized restarting seasons. Be That your GonNa continue on. This is how we're doing note we've called it. That's what we at least how we're going to buy things the government in the UK of said. June I might be a possible date for elite sport to stop happening Siddiq Com. Who is the mayor of London? He has said that. There's GonNa be no sport before that dates happening in London. That's all with a June twelfth June. Twelve the date the premier league aiming to have. I fixed you back. Who are I mean? Good luck with all of that in the other significant leagues around Europe. Sarah that League General Assembly Mountain Wednesday and they Waiting for government decisions to be made but medical protocols they how come they still have twelve four owns of games to play a few other Epstein from the previous round but they are allowing teams to tranquilize deflate. As of this coming Monday added mentioned last week that said was three. Florentina plays on on some support staff members as well from that club. Did test positive for Virus thirty two. That's the Torino player. Also tested positive. So and a great deion you from Sarah. There is however the thing that I have predicted for quite a while that said league up when they said that they were declaring wherever scenes were at the end of a where they got to in the League. That is where you finish and it's transpired that I'm y'all who one of the teams that were relegated. Because of the calling of the League they have started legal proceedings for what they call a unjust relegation have personal They were awarded the title which seemed they require. Way Ahead in in the League Both Olympic say the they were only nineteen in the league that were four points behind Neem and ten points ahead to lose bossom of a ten games place this a huge argument that they felt like they could turn something like that. I predicted this along. While by saying how they can even Yet the president has said it just goes against a sporting vannice and I tend to agree with. I think this is going to go down. I said in the previous podcast. I think that's up. Many of the clubs. I think ended up being eight Trinity Clubs. That said they didn't WanNA play mutual grains. I think they just want reassurances is not going to go down on the back of any decisions made. An elite is revived. I just don't see how a changing any kind of playing conditions can Then lead to teams being relegated in these circumstances if you're GONNA promote teams. I think that's fine. I think such big business that ECON- possibly allow to in my opinion. I I can't see how any kind of legal groans to dissuade me from otherwise and other another news as well in the Portuguese league. The team from the ZOE's Santa Clara forced to have all of that Home Games on the Portuguese mainland because If you end support you go. You automatically have a fourteen day. Quarantine obviously can't be doing that with If you're expecting teams to go and travel over them and come back so dot com happen but they don't seem to be too bothered with that the premera league aged to Stats up again on June fourth. Also the Danish football league the Super League Thus aiming to return on the twenty eight th of May so the natives of Germany who is starting this weekend that hoping for the weekend following that on. This is kind of breaking news as well Deli. Allie was held at knife point on Wednesday evening in the UK. He was self isolating at home with the with family when there was some intruders who struck his face and I think they have stolen jewelry. This is breaking using a great deal of detail with it but he deli was on social media to say thank you for the support that he received and the item was okay. Abbott sentences scary moment for him. I hope he's okay. And the next section. We'll talk about is. I'm a lesson and some interesting developments.

Gs MC PODCASTS DOT COM for more info all right welcome back in the previous section. We thought so little bit BIOS have very different leagues coping with Curl virus precautions having to be made led lights just switch on before the transfer uses. Mls's getting on so mls of being in discussion with the Players Association to try and get a twenty percent pay-cut across the board now. This is in order for the close to remain solvent. I assume this is different from three weeks ago where they have the idea of a fifty percent pay only if you were earning over one hundred thousand Dulles those below that would not affected by it that has been pitched as an idea. No one at the players association has made a comment about this just yet. Both sides were in talks about a collective bargaining agreement before the break for Corona Virus. And this was in February and some gin in pots wall. Thoughts is never actually been agreed upon by by both sides by what would happen in this situation the old a CBA did contain a force majeure in that but it was not retained during all these discussions so the is have a little bit of leeway that In terms of how they can negotiate a coat in that pay if that is something that they want to do in terms of actually getting the League back up and running away as being proposed is since a little bit light when I was a teacher and you rather than have one game per week that you'd have a collection of Schools Cohen. Mia ON THE FIELD. Have a little bit of a mini tournament. And that's kind of what they're looking today with maybe two host cities having two different tournaments And you have one of those cities is looking like it might be all Hamdan. This actually happen and so it would be like little group games and then into a knockout stage those teams that did not make the knockout stages were then have light what they are going to call consolation games that would make the right move games. They be ordinarily playing anyway and they're looking even have the winner of this competition. Be The representative in the con- CAF Champions League as it's looking less and less likely that the Open Cup is to happen that this year. All the teams would be quarantined protested regular regularly and they're looking for tennis stars on this thing so this is very much in the embryo stage. I believe Dallas and Kansas City are also in the ruins one of these cities. That'd be really fun. If that Kinda think comes off I'd be certainly into that. So go to say in terms off. Transfer plays moving to various different clubs. It is rumored that Newcastle who are just in By you ONA's got plenty more money Looking at a fifty three million pound author Gareth. Bale who his golf handicap has gone way down the season because he's not really been picked all much he's thirty years old probably like he's last big. Move at that age you castle. They'll be looking to build a pretty decent squad so I think that would be a really interesting move for them. Dejean Lovin Liverpool. Who is in the night of the team? Depending on what the Gomez Almighty sensitive that sends a half. He is looking for a move to Roma. He's still only thirty years old and he's played in a Wilco final as he is himself melted. He is the best central defender in the world. Moving on to Manchester United. This is being the music quite a while. Now that they reckon that's Jaden Sancho appreciate dominant Jet Greeley of Aston Villa. And this neom kid do Bellingham Birmingham city. they're going to UNITED DURING THE SUMMER THEM. Ingham who I know think financially could benefit from a big sale of the sixteen year old. I've seen clips of this kid. And he reminds me very much of a young collins. He's goal but also a box to box which is really unusual. You don't really get that type of midfielder these days so he looks a prospect. I think if united was get up trio with plays I think here they would go that extra level I go to site. Boss Lona are interested in Tottenham Defended home fourth. Don't really see that above saying self don't really right in. Maybe the primarily too. Quit for him but he looks very unreliable in my opinion. But maybe can make playwright. I know is also said also will stay next year and he'll run out the remaining year of his contract there and acting as he's going to be the case for many plays that Given the circumstances right now they don't really see a move away in these uncertain. Times doesn't thirty one and I suspect that the people coming in from especially if he's a free transfer this time next year Chelsea on United Manchester United rather that after Mussa Dan Bay from Liam the strike it from that. He's only twenty three looking for maybe sixty million for him. This is an interesting one City as Old Pierre Emmerick Obama Young Asmal's strike here. I can see I'm going. I don't see us not improving enough him to hang around much longer have to say he is absolutely class. Not Fella and asthma relied on too much. He's getting to with Of the that? He's pretty any my opinion. He's getting there. That said maybe fancy move to Rail Madrid. Honestly I think that would be a brilliant brilliant new yet less coupla things play. I really right highly declan rice. He's West Ham right now. I think he would slot in some most midfield settling primarily league and maybe lots of places in Europe to rally grid looking. It's Gao County. So maybe if that doesn't go through the make declaration but also I think Chelsea are in the market for. I think he's the equally. Anything WANTS TO BE THAT LOT. himself Tackle can pass got a goal in I. I really in very highly. I've got to say although he's not had a absolutely extending season this time round. I think he's still really on the Chinese team. That Gallo is a on loan from a to United State right now. They expect him back so Shanghai Shanghai Shenhua they want him back before the start of the season no arguments apparently regardless of where united with the with death season We'll call it in the final part of the show on the next installment of the section.

Welcome back this is the final section all the whole cast and previous section we had kits the MLS might go up boat restarting the season as well as some of the transfer speculation that might happen once the season of being completed in this final section. We are going to be looking at and just a continuation of the section. That's I started last week and calling it. Around the world in eighty soccer moments a look at some of the more significant happenings of the sport that we love around the world and in its history and this week I want to focus on the nineteen eighty-six will quarterfinal between Argentina. The England it's famous FATU. Incredible instance one of which is referred to as the hand of God and it is referred to by that the person that's actually perpetrated is the right word from an English perspective. Probably Maradona this history surrounding this game in particular cozy ninety nine hundred to Argentina Britain. At fault in what was called the the Falklands War? This was a British territory just off the coast of Argentina it. It had long been disputed with Argentina. They had claimed their rights over it. Walls declared two hundred fifty five. British lives lost six hundred forty nine at Tinian lives were lost With many more wounded this is the backdrop of ninety six will cook in the World Cup. Argentina had just beaten Uruguay. One Nil in the round of sixteen England had beaten Paraguay by three no previous rand and so they messy too there in the quarterfinals. The first that the actual first-half was pretty tight then early in the second half. They still know all that has a deflected pass. Comes off Steve Hodge of England and loops up towards the edge of the penalty area. And both Peter Shilton the England goalkeeper Diego. Maradona are both going for it. This is sort of coming together. It ends up in the back of the nets. I remember distinctly that the commentator at the time does not call is being humble and that it's very very well done. Harry does it. He kind of lead with his arm but also with his head and at the time it won't pick up on. The referee at the time was actually spoken to many years after the after the incident and he had been told that if a linesman had a better view of it that the person should make the decision then when the linesman was interviewed. He said that he didn't really want to get involved because it was so obvious that they think that any of his business not give it sort of things up an incredible moment. Obviously England complaints the referee the humble that the goal was given Argentina. One not a few months later. The goal century is scored to do what Diego Maradona does on that field. Take some doing. Apparently is an absolute white minefield. Cutting up really awful for I took his on. He runs of at sixty odds with the ball. He beats about four men. Think probably three of them twice. It's just an incredible. He then chips it over. Shelton Grails OF ALL TIME. Argentina. Sooner cruised into the causes as England. Aside ended up being too warm with bands coming on he sets up to really good. Chelsea's one of which lineker scored from I remember as a kid growing up. I would bean nine at that point. I remember the absolute injustice of it all. I couldn't believe it. It's actually a England. Meal deserve to get anything from that game can play very well. It's all on Argentina. Went onto win the whole thing Germany in the final? The significance of that. Of course is Diego. Maradonna became his absolute Pango. Lactic mega the Wilko's in that era. Where your only chance really to see willed players and so he became an absolute cheapest data just on a world scale the other moment in soccer. That lights it so John is what is called the miracle on grass. This is the game between the USA in England in the Nineteen Fifty Road. Comb tell in. Brazil in the group stages England's wrong with Chile Spain on the USA in game England Chile to know the USA were the next game but USA would basically made part timers are Rama's were absolutely expected to get thumbs off the field and in fact the coach Bill Jeffrey at the time. Some don't you probably Cola pre-game confident that press conference that we have no chance sheet ready to be slaughtered. So he gave his own teaching much of a chance on England. Highly fancied Walter winterbottom. The England manager at the time is expected to absolutely law this law. Pop yes watts. Did Not in. The game was played in in Belo Horizonte and fronts that ten thousand or more spectators. Although England dominated the game it was a deflected shot that went in off a Haitian dishwasher. His name was Joe Gaetjens and the crowd went absolutely bananas. Apparently we're all over them after that they held on to that. We'll win. Legend has it that when the game was reported upon and message was received from Brazil England had lost wants. Nothing they fought. That was either misprint or that. It was ten nil to England rather than one mills the USA or Vegas could not believe that USA Dayton one nil in fact the Birmingham Gazette called it a black day for England. It was a day of introspection for England who then went away and try to cope Plans it was also really significant day for the US. Just just unbelievable shot results.
