"I wish. We could put this show in a very rift to go after the one near against pass. And welcome to another episode Benito with me host. and. I'm here with different faces. Same faces Georgia's here are S. Age Is. Watch the. Liverpool and Chelsea Game England game ever watched Chelsea game weekend, which is ace G. You make very good. Thank you pledge to be on. It's been. Quite walk by I am I'm loaded and ready to go lovely stuff and and Lizzy of the regular voices of will and Mockus Pat Down today pat down. Studio. Just. Just finished work. So are come in just the PAT on and. Go. Low Tech Today Yeah for chilled relaxed, and an will literally just flown in and smashed a cup of tea. Yet. Literally, then how you'd literally smarter liquid but that's got me ponder. In. Football you always after use the word literally. Jamie Redknapp. Jamie Redknapp was the king of it. Like for instance, Spurs literally smashed offense and on the weekend, he's literally flown down the wing. Wings Jamie. Guys this view on, we've got a full week's worth of football listeners. The content is moving so fast, and for world is Fred so much We have a tech issue with our last episode is being. So it is in the ether that's some west somebody. You can see it some of you can click it become listen. And We'll get that. Saw It. Would definitely be out. Goes want to get onto standout much is we're GonNa do so much views. We're going to do some previews and part threes than sears look at the. Bundesliga. But we wanted to focus on specific players in specific matches and I don't even think I had to pull my spurs card for this unwavering you guys faces after. Some just truly stole the show with a sublime class saying one of had to finish whilst moving at great speeds someone has been nothing short of a revelation for Spurs, for me since he's joined absolute joy since. Two, thousand fifteen two, thousand, sixteen. Came in from Labor Kussin I think he came for about ten million pounds I'm point three six. A even at a time, it was a lot that's much money that type of play we get in here is it just? It wasn't it wasn't an established name. On a think sawn. Rally down in any capacity that has been asked to fulfil and. Offering everyone is now you know Sunday's performance. As, put very much in people's mind that. Song is an elite finisher and it might be that the teams are going to start to look at him specifically to answer that team will like you the gain under your lover of some what she will overview give a bit about four months on Sunday, take it from there. I've said before I think John is possibly the best transition player in the premier. League. and. This was like. Transition Football one, zero, one for an attacker. Do you recommend it as any coach in for the attack? Does you just go song came? Do you think? That's always been the the belief and our no word on the street is that he very much likes to allow his attacking force to conduct. To work out themselves now I don't know how to is there's one or two things that happened on. Sunday that made me think maybe he tried to position or allow hurricane to move in certain positions. But there is always been the tool that marine doesn't really do too much attack base coaching. He does allow the players to coin if improvise themselves But, my God did that work at treat on? Yes, Sunday absolutely in the the way he can carry the ball at pace the timing of runs to get into a exploited gaps of in a defense finishing was. Clinical you only have four shots in the game. He scored of every single shot. It's it's just mind blowing. He's so good. And I love as well. He came after the game and I had a post match interview way pretty much just talked about hurricane and how good the assists were the father his finishes. Were on a plate for him pretty much as what he says and I thought he's doing himself such a disservice there because they were really top quality finishes dead. There's a lot of paramedic strikers are not scoring chances for he was just phenomenal. Marina. Seen that Oh. Yeah. I've seen it SORTA. You do not Joan Pin on somebody's school full goes. On the interview and say Hurricane Mala Matt came much. Nowadays he's everyone's may not telling alleys mate. You could see in some face. He played blow. Do It if you here, you just poor management for me. I'm not just. Marina wanted to limelight for a change. Yeah. I was GONNA chime in that because when Joe Joe think didn't mean to be to contrast it but he was signed for quite a bit more money. So I'm for two thousand, eighteen, million not remember him saying if a lot more yeah and remember it twenty seven pounds. Maybe add. and. Money because he's he's the most expensive Asian player episode and I remember when he did sign I remember very specifically because living with the spurs found new absolutely. He's a friend of the podcast designer, Josh Blackwell, who kind of was very, very shocked. They spent so much money on a relative unknown I. Mean People knew about. Mindy. It was very. Leverkusen based performances and I guess it was a gamble. But his development into a true seven is beautiful. I mean I really I love how I mean are tree seven I said I don't know what numbers mean anymore football, but if you're talking Under Appeal you guys. Talking about a great attacking player I don't know. He's just he's A It, I love his play is interested in how the persona foist insistence city personifies. In looking at his last season at hamburger hamburger that later said. Two. Thousand Thirteen four in ten does forces for Leverkusen next season eleven goes two assists. Price season a Hamburg twelve goes to. Know just always double figures of goals. But the fantastic thing for me is seeing his abilities both feet is an absolute joy and from a coaching perspective, you know we always encourage both for it and to see him just lineup. Be Take those goes on on his left foot initially Roy for. Ought to know if there is a of a love to to cease some. So breakdown of finishes West Song ranks as an elite finisher and I don't even know necessarily walk the promises would be for that. Would it be I took? Would it be at speed with it being so certain area but man, he's just lethal he's absolutely lethal. It's carrying the ball into the penalty area that sort of running onto a has just been played on this edge of the penalty area and when he's got a chance to take like A. To you just which was what all of these challenges felt like. Even as a defender as close by you just back in them every time and it doesn't matter what the angle is. You just think he's GonNa get enough power on it to beat the keeper. He's GonNa position it exactly where there is a gap within the goal doesn't after keep his position and it's just like elite level finish in like you say it's amazing. One of the things you're saying those about consistency but this game did make me think back to when he was. First signed. There were rumors that he was going into parts Tina and say, why am I, not playing in Port? sandown. And said, I have a plan for you. You will be a star within my team, but it's GonNa come slowly and you look we've spoken about how KLOPP can do that with players and bring them in slowly. WAITS TILL HALF-TIME FIASCO which will come to? This is a player that maybe didn't have the most amazing of starts and he seems to get better every single year. Yes. He's consistent and look how important was when hurricane outlast season basically carrying you for a while until he went out himself but he is he is getting better and better, and I'm surprised I am a little bit surprised is still at Tottenham Mark and I. Look a bit tax school questions I. Think if Marino's go down this route of claim type football if this is something that's going to be used regular. Is some than be. The elite performance in Spurs team with Marina. Philosophy to use came to drop play those whip bowls in like can seem almost become an lot just plundering goes and I'm just wondering about how much starring might become in in. News, what I'm plundered. Water and plundering. Yeah and we'll always been a goal threat and we've seen what he can do and he can do it from. You can carry from deep positions as well. I mean go to the season last year go that was as well. We'll mention devout is time in. Our think it's his recognition of space. You've got out to that as well in order to make those runs behind will mention these probably the best transition player of release counterattack inability as a weapon for any side. If when you've play a lot, he's going to school goals and you've got to use them in that position I think. Cain showed he can almost play that number ten drowning and create an so it'd be interesting to see. Are they line up especially with Belan loan as well? because that's GonNa throw the sponsoring the worst two positions but. Sewn for me. So hurricane, it's hard to say one's a primary threat because they both primary French you've got to world class players in the soy there. I. Just. Go back to his value as well because we're GONNA have to check this up how much he was signed for because I've found that he was on for four groups in the turnip here theft. Is His a question? Do you think song is GonNa outscore hurricane this season? Well Yeah. George I think based on watching Harry, came move and mobility thing we hurricane and the minute. I think he will I think without scoring. Yeah I think he is and I think it'd be great is still back. Decent Double. Figures. Think you'll get to twenty but I think you get back to. Hope is. Unreal. Versus. Yeah I'M GONNA get. Eighteen, eighteen and like twenty six assists. Wish we could this joe in a very miffed the Joe after the one against. Niceties. No this is madness anyway be awful A. Work against bad teams against Southampton I'm not saying it's going to work everyone. So. Handsome work like the easiest team to go through What's going on Wisconsin? They haven't thought Hoiberg, he was defensive rubbish. He was instrumental for you. I thought the plug enough the yes and having that ball winner later possession was unfortunately I have to say is very Marini, Marino player but in a Way. What Marino does well, lines upper. Functional, midfield. That protects his defense. And then finally dombre actually play and he looked really good did the classic Leon. Got Two defenders around me don't worry about it. I'm just GONNA skip between them and don't go about you've been schooled in that for years. Exactly. Yeah. Training principle that they have. Plays a just maybe that's why they signed the Rafael. Fabio they had them at the same time once I think didn't they say maybe identified as maybe that's why they signed players like, Rafael. You never seems to play. They just chuck him out as an extra player and train into the everyone's human on. Four becomes an editor. Nice Colin made a very good point on so for show and he's not reckoned that maybe dom ballet was removed at half time to actually allow came to drop into space he was occupying. Which? was quite interesting Go back and watch it But yes. Okay Mom. That has more steel than people thinking a little bit less silk than people think but he's a good blend a candlelight. See in ballet will sell so and we. and. I. Think that would could be a relief fund midfield, best midfield combination. But yet who knows a Southampton looked? Dangerous appoint stunning scored a superb goal. Go that was brine done things is definitely going to go into school plenty cozy season. Just you always wondered Southampton they're ever GonNa mean anything and that's what. It's strange with hasn't hotel like to Hoiberg. Did did he get the best out of a play? Quite clearly is is good enough his Marino champion Jose Marina when Mr Law to see a playroom midfield. On the opposition team and you know that was quite click gap that Southampton should apply themselves and you wonder if he could have been a bit more to keep a quality play a lot otherwise dining goes going to go down the drain and I mean he can score from anywhere blows my school hurricane this year. It's the big word. It's the big what I did say eighteen. doggie going to get nineteen goes. Could either of them school in your twenty twenty one? Danny Aines score bucketload load, and he's still probably be in the team. That's what hurts. But anyway. Okay guys. Well, let's not dwell too much on Spurs look set offense song is Jones fee. The threat is season from from C. and a do wonder whether the clips in time with a would like to add him somewhat pat pat of Mensa. Because I think he's technically good enough to operate in those fears as well. I think he's just a really good camera attacker I think you could substitute measly for. Money or Selah, and probably he would be the most seamless replacement for one of those two. Super show superstar. Okay. Well, we're going to take up a another place focus with. A. Young Player who essentially confirmed in love with and Iraq, and if we go back and if you like to. get all the features of podcasts other than Brighton Hove Albion podcasts often with with the first big enough plight dumpty. Next sections about Tarik Humpty, just let listeners. But like I think we gave him love very very scene and I'm the three win against Newcastle away from home and the performance putting against Chelsea, which on all counts with with news not we now have a `nother brought back he is. All kinds of exciting Georgia. Now, you watch this game gives gives tax performance. So he I mean he's extremely high in his in his position. So you technically I think minutes prophetically Tart Lumpia right wingback and It's it's pretty obvious and the the rea, the reason for it seems to be the when Brighton bring that. Mid Down and pushed the booty. The Roy is given goes excellent. But what did the other end so fast, we can see this in. It's one of those moments where you're like Oh my God, we have another rudy, fast explosive player but. What was amazing is performed. The night was his strength I mean is core and his strength and his movement being able to protect the ball. There were a couple of moments particularly in his own half where he managed to shield and run and I mean these are types of eye-catching moments that you just you against extremely high quality players when a nineteen year olds doing or ob against you know Y- gelatin, email Charleston started. You show vs and so on. At Newcastle it's still extremely positive and it's really really impressive. I think that's the big thing with. Everything he seems to do so impressive. It's kind of it's a improvement on an area, which Bra and under Hughes lacked. Pushing why they want attacking and now a potter it's like this whole movement. Through these areas and it's it's extremely sign the. English student. I think he's like positivity and attitude is infectious at he just seems to like radiate. I didn't think I think much of the day coveted pretty well, you know everyone's fell in love with this guy just said it yourself and. Yeah when you when you contribution is as well as he did, he's just unlucky didn't get on the school she the night is a real shame that you didn't get one in. But he will. He absolutely will. Want to jump in there quickly because you mentioned something about is kind of character George. And I'm just reading hey, will grand Portland said about him he said he's spoken a lot about his personality. He's just a kid that just wants to improve and wants to learn any so refreshing to work with. So that speaks volumes about this ladder non one always hawk zone about kind of getting characterize especially for young players, and if you've got that will to want to learn and develop especially when you're already planned such a high level as well. As an thing, new more pints of ran down it said he's a kid with no limits. He's. He's amazing. And he said I just think that when you when you look at the national set up and you look at these places, we've we've got, we've got a very interest in problem with writeback moment and the amount of options that we have. You know I actually think in the Liverpool Match Reese James. Do himself to service. We'll go on to that in a moment. We have a lot of options at right back and it pains me to think that the trump these this might not be able to affect that, but he is so good that that kind of thought and that kind of that concern isn't actually that large. I think I think he possibly could fit in I. Don't know what capacity, but he's he's extremely good. He's GonNa he's GonNa be a great right back and I just loved how Having won the penalty. Allen maximum full was actually what a right back and we'll just maybe go down the wing and maybe across the ball in just lump like often get in that space behind you I'm going to get in and just the. It. It has whiffs of like. The. Exciting foods that were told the sunshine boys, Sterling's Rush Vard's. I think we've a little bit more forward and let's remember being played in a three, four three and very attacking free, full three and. Like you said, it could easily move up into into those. Positions and it's very clear what technical ability and hunger to to move away from a very comfortable out that would have been in Chelsea many plays have remained there choice. She did a great list. The other day is that of a visit today of the place still at Chelsea. Chelsea. I mean I haven't got it in front of me but. We're talking we're talking at a number of players who make you wonder exactly how on earth? They let go of the tight lumped ease of this world Okay. I've got the list drink waters zappa Costa Bob Rochman Msn Rock Yoko unless just chuck Ross the on that list as well. How these plays honestly still at the club I'm performing entire clumsy currently I mean it's it's not well there's still ten days for them to sort out their loan move to satisfy. Steve Bruce move them along maximum as well. Swished himse opposite flank to get away from hunted because it was just. Not. Bullied while the youngster. Yeah exactly. He was a nuisance as well. That's what I mean about his strength and the way that he was on the ball that was like a real drive. We're GONNA see more web plays just playable. Yeah. It's high praise. I really likes the combinations the solve forming in between trouser and him and might have high. Fats are really really exciting trio to have operation. And? I. Think he's GonNa be really say Hamza long-term hounds and Potter would it be fair to say well, Gee, you know I think Potus dot project there that quite settled for clear what he wants to do one hundred percent and I think it's telling that also that right hand side, you've got Ben White playing on the rise of Louis Dunk so. A lot of touches in this game. Sixty four touches. For a sense back and it's because that's the site that bright look to attack down. You've got mo Mo- pie of the Front to goes to the right as well, and it is dangerous side. We've talked about teams of overloading specific sites and Creighton as overloads and there's something. So Poetic About potters Brighton against Bruce's four four to Newcastle just kept lumping it up to. Carol to see if there was any chance that might hit him and then full to Callum Wilson and it was just like they were completely outclassed and I know we talked a little bit about what? Chris Wilder has been building at Sheffield united an effing GRANDPA also doing a very similar job where he is tactically innovating. Within. Very very confined resources and as building something quite special under underpricing on exactly superwealthy on that just a really good team that looked improve every year I think he's a player's chef who? Just in throughout riffing off that mark also lost our Moi recently to. It's called something special. Season enough said et to you guys in the Great John. J. Collective Hobie support we should get bombed in his collective because the they're they're they're. Doing that yeah. Very likeable. Do you think do you think Chelsea fans would swap Lampty for Reese James G Think Chelsea's found swap Brian for. A thing. That's what brought water for. Lampert. Would have all. This is impossible with no way because he has no way. Yes I think Lanzi is better than James. I think they've got enormously different characteristics and almost as bad as Steve mcclaren the other day commenting the number soccer is in attacking right midfielder the likes to get forward good. Wanted people totally miss out. On not just awful isn't it and these players are at right back options. They were all so different are they better than one? Another I'm not sure I think tire lump these together and the minute often could agree with Jerry I think he's he's bad in reese James he showing more. Really choose gone is the other thing that is that is another question was going to say that within. Hopefully he's not not injured long-term. That would be a shame if conduct. Two Games of promise come stunted and for offense see teams. Okay. Well, let's wrap up part one there guys. We have got Chelsea Liverpool and specifically Tiago and have to discuss in part to and small reviews we will be back shortly. Supply performance from fina at centreback really bring back memories of. There wasn't really tackling or winning head is in the air, but it was the timing of the side President picking the right moments that always had and also that presence from the pack ten at ten for that boy from. Brazil. Superb stuff. That's part of your Benito. We're onto what wasn't epic match but wasn't really epic in the football quality overall. I'm going to say that because I really wanted a bit Ding Dong, all Chelsea gap smashed and they didn't we talking Chelsea Liverpool the Harman's actually got together in one building to watch this, which is very unusual. Those four of us who sits before jungle goes down South GonNA, Caro-. The food was amazing cut foods now for US loved it and we were tweet to some superb performances but maybe not a superb spectacle. been. Resident Nipple Fund. Once. Pick two players out here and I think maybe what we'll do, we'll focus on Tiardo initially. You confronted that but listen we're going to talk about fundamentally have shaped box. Yes. Quite. A bit. And essentially as Messrs because it's worrying the last two games however, we need to bask in what was an absolute blind Kami Kami is a maybe someone cooler than me can figure out like a film cameo equivalent of what Kiato dates out there they'll be there. But until someone figures out g gives the match for me, give his kind of wet wet Yaldo came into it, and what is role is and how has been new I. Think the match actually is the perfect story as an introduction to his chapter Liverpool because he's play with so many chapters now because the way that he progressed through. An era power and then you know the move to Bam unit where he worked in the mood coaches and managed to actually always keep rat the game on Sunday was. We never know what time yesterday had percents off, but it was extremely competitive in chose defensive area and the midfield and. Christians sending off we talk about because skype that it's death and it was the turning point for that to be a gap and I was talking to joe minutes before about KLOPP's attacking substitution strategies on the there's this part your club, which is he kills teams he loves to kill teams and there was a moment in the match where Chelsea Don's ten men, and he brings on a player who looks to be magic he on all sources it seems the wants to live boone live for wants to your guy says, that's like a marriage that as a happiness there and play came onto phil and play in an area. From the deep central mid point to up to an attacking mid point in always the sensor. And it's the area which we've been lacking. We've talked about an A. ratings good as bad. But let's just take a photo nine role that for me no fills and if you don't supply this type of player with the Boise needs, you know when you have a player. Control district as well as you can. Then you have a problem and I think we've locked it. It's just sort of gone through these areas of of the season last season. So now we have a play that's ready to to pass. I think we've missed it a little one out and Henderson are really good at this. This guy is not really good. He's supreme. He has managed to put together statistics about the Internet more than any of the star player I've ever seen. As a performance of ready maybe over hyped I'm not sure Monday night funds are dying about it. He was any for forty five minutes but I think we've seen the beginning of a new chapter in midfield strategy or anything we've watched this progresses quickly before and forty five minutes. Just he just killed the game cloth him they closed the no. Certainly is not what we were reflections on the GAIMAN and. I'm going to bar a time from. Over May he talked about epinay being severe compass and feel Liverpool now have a campus in that midfield I think you can just completely show them the way he's their guiding light. However. There is part of me that feels. It centralizers. Liverpool. What they do and I think whilst he can absolutely cyclic possession well, and he can supply for me nothing for me will be involved a little bit more now. A D. wonder we've Liverpool's. So much of what they do is up from the wing backs if we can call them that even though it's a four three three. I do wonder whether it does just. So suckley action into the middle a little bit more whether Trenton, Robinson will be as productive with chugging thou not saying that it will detract from them. Just something that I'm interested to see unfold I. Understand what you mean the the the play if it runs through for me know if he's good enough to disrepute from front, then you've got to the best. Ford's next. Right. But I don't think that the plays behind him in in Trenton Robinson are going to suffer I think that if you if you watch the way that we move together, I mean. Beano, we'll get onto but the the way the backline moves up he the center becomes it's just so interesting, his passing range from the center is going to push his even higher are worry defensively more than anything rather than taking away from what possibilities we have on the left and right? I worry defensively because this is this is talking passing. I feel like he's a magnet I feel like he's so good the as a player if your Virgil. Van Dyke, if you're for being if your navigator, you're probably going to look for that player to pass the ball to quite a lot and I. Just wonder whether those passes might have been. Previously directed towards Robinson and Trent, and then transition would have been a little bit quicker. I. Honestly don't know if it will detract from them. It might make Liverpool a far better attacking I mean you're Klopp knows a bit more about football than I do but it's just something I'm keen to see unfold. Do. You think he's going to start every game pretty much because I didn't think he was gonNA. Start Getting Oh yeah I think that young club does things that work he he he sticks to things at work and I think he will. I think he was start love games I think think the key thing I think I think you Lhasa. Games of see you've got such a midfield there and plenty of options to rotate and you even got the young lions coming through as well as some of those complain midfield think is Harvey Elliott Midfield welcome midfielders. He just award play. At the moment he seems to just be playing occupying space solid pace. But obviously you got. You've had into certain. Like there's plenty vocations for being you Oxley Chamberlain this dilemma in the Senate I mean an pundits have touched on it but you know what's interesting about gays move over to live police that? Coming From Bay Munich where we saw them demolished teams aiden in in in the Champions League they have played starters like Tina Parisot, you want even. Willow knees and the way that they were too. There's so many options and I think that when attacking teams. Do. Walk. These teams do they need so many options it there's no other way and and it's it's how the game has changed. Now you know the scored is actually the team I think plays get this I'm seeing more I feel like. Meeting for the low fee moved to as well to set I don't think he thought I'm going to dominate the midfield on the star. I think he thinks I'm GONNA play located Bay Munich for five years I'm GONNA be in and out team I'M GONNA injuries. I'm going to be explosive when I come on I'm GONNA, help the team in every area count when the manager wants to take notes no because I'm terrible because let's face it. He is deafening Tarik. Already dishing out the hugs when he came on, wasn't he just? Say. Was I. Thinking about David, Moyes needed more sign him but. Says to you, I'm going to rest you for two weeks. I think you think fantastic. That's great. You know I'm going to get my legs back and then one comeback I will Roma, socks off game for this guy, the way they play. So intense if you ask the same eleven players to play that way for fifty sixty games at Liverpool going to be playing in a condensed season, you can kill them. So I think the way Liverpool of managed to. Reinforce and Strengthen through death in the current financial climate and they are not in a great position financially. But what they've managed to do is incredible. Yes quickly, Hoyle one start off just pulled up his pass completion on the half the he came on. Was Eighty nine point three percent now at the last three seasons, Benham on a four five minute. That's the lowest pass completion ratio is had. Baron in mind those other seasons ease played. Boise at it. Right Boise's. Best. Movie Everytime. Every time. Well from the high of Jugo managing? To. Cram. Several Games worth of statistics and forty five minutes We need to have with another player and we love I have a A. Is that a think fascinates. All of us don't think I've been as excited as a player coming to England. As I have A. I'm not necessarily. Generally. Charge does a different level, maybe different age. Makes me feel that way but I haven't skied for a long time and his superb things at Labor Kussin. It's very clear from us. We are not experts football. But I think we before Washington seeing kind of where he operates best and what works around him. And and it's clear to me and we'll put it out that Franklin poges is not using. That is best and and so we've had less than a hundred and eight minutes of habits and already there are murmurings of things aren't right assurer scar sports are cool by inner is he worth is price timeslot my goodness so Is quite have a will and and how was he being used by? By Frank Lampard Moment Kai habits is a feature balance door winner. Unfortunately, what we are seeing right now is what happens when a future Balladur winner has just got a big money move to a club of a really tactically inept manager. Who doesn't really know how to use them and can't From a very standard four, three, three system still don't think he's really figured out yet the fact that he was pulled off in this game Chelsea with downstairs man I understand that. But you leave Mason Mount on the pitch a community seemed because he knows him a little bit more. For football manager completely understand that the world of your club would be quite isolating at times but he got his finger on the pulse on what I have. It is Chelsea. Just spend however much money they've spent on links play far better from defense to attack. Dan Mason, mount ever will I. Don't Mind Base Amount I'm not particularly big fan of him, but he's he has his place in this Chelsea team in his talk four player, but he is not Klay Habits and the fact that Frank Lampard things. That's the right thing to do when you plan that kind of game and have a very slim chance of beating this livable team of ten men you've got to leave that player on their with team. Just, really poor management and I do fear a little bit for Harvard some what it means for him already. Not because of his quality because a Lampard's looking at the Brighton game as well again. Nothing Ruben Loftus Cheek. But even left cheek wound never be as good as Hoffitz is now like. No matter. What trajectory he's GonNa go on. Boise plan look this number ten position and have essentially spends most of his time. As hundred Roy win by luck he essentially behind the halfway line for most of it out white, not connecting play. Does Frank Lampard know what type of play that he's got. George. Does he know what do them I don't think that we can judge a play on T. promises fussy is. Is, in my head at the moment, we can't judge the performance because this play needs to settle, but however, the towel, the management, the coaching that behind that sue was like I think it's fair to say were looking at the coaching right what we're saying is judging a play right now football performance. So it's it really boils down to what will touched on the detector coaching type of tactical coaching. The Frank Lampard wants to develop and implement Chelsea but if you have a setup where you you must attacking performances are with a certain group of players. Upfront. Law Season this revolution, the signings of you know these this new form in this new shape. GonNa, come in. To wedge the players in and hope for the best seems to be what we've witnessed and. What I think fat to say is that this is never worked. You know you can. You can look historically at teams that sign. Massive players I don't use them appropriately and they don't work and and it doesn't even have to be speculative about their attitude doing away from home and their mindset it doesn't need to go if you can't at the moment say that Lampard is confidently deploying his players and I think that the verner on in the matches, where was an interesting Plates Watch That type of player is is it's nation skipping fast and. Type of player seems to impress very quickly but the. The actual deployment of was again, very interesting. So you could play like a little bit older, a little bit more progressed and advanced, and he's trying to make the most of a match that you can because he probably knows how to have. It seems as delicate flower you really wanted to blossom needs to be really coached and protected and pushed in that area that he can just say fights matches. A really worry for for that player is definitely the one that that worries the most. It's such a shame, but we'll see one, hundred, Seventy George. Voice said to let you can't judge plans to two games. You just can't do it. Certainly an assault lot moving to a new country as well. I'm not sure how good is English is I'm not I'm not judging the player on just really cheesy now. and. He's been played wearing. You've been played close nine. So enfranchise mind where does that stand him when you've got fit when you got put? US Fit. Is. He going to be the one that sacrifice I mean he's the one. He's the youngest at twenty one I mean. Only twenty two, Zayed she's twenty seven does frank think logo with more experienced had an I'm going to develop this player of not recognizing the potential. Balladur. On his hands here I mean is frank. Really inept feeling. The he's going to pass him over and think of it as development. I don't know but. It's a different one. CanNot just can I just say I don't think coffers. Is is like. This young. Wet Behind, the ears law doesn't really know. What Xuelong Divide? Merman, he was he was the most. For Labor Kussin For three seasons. He. He he led the team to exactly where they got. It was built around him. He's an incredible mutual capable and incredibly intelligent footballer are don't think he's luck this he's he's not. He's not this raw talent that needs to be like, Oh, what how do we? We need to shake inform? No, you don't need to put habits. Verner need to feed Zia shot watching policy you the side. And put some loveless sticker sticker substitute babble Mason Mount. Cheap. About Subsidy Way. Beyond. Him Isn't it put county in maybe and then you take on Georgia's list here. Would you have a menu ever expanding Tottenham squad? I had him from I, two games in in in the fantasy. But of essentially taking him out because I'm worried he's just GonNa get bench for for the next game. You're so right though J like you build this team around Cla habits he is to borrow Chelsea related phrase. He's a special one in this team are really team river. I. Realize I obviously but he is the one that you build the team around that. I, think they all good supporting pieces but you do not stick him out on the right wing and play in exactly the same system you play him and that shadow striker position and. Everything else around him and Adobe Land Party Scott the. Tattoo ability or the Kahane's to do that. It smacks of. Max De Maria at at night as well. The last time I can think. About play. Coming in super excited and no idea exactly what this play where this place performing I mean de Maria putting some blogging from Monday night more complicates. It's strange that. Managers can get so much so wrong and time. This is he's two games in and. And he those two games we in habits. That will be her and he'll be thinking about what he can do. He needs to be coached and he needs to be put not right position not right. Sorry. The correct position. Great. The team. Assistant make sure you play them in the right position. So he's looking. Oh. Yeah. Yeah Yeah. The. Right, position. Okay goes well, let's let's wrap up. Let's talk and. We were hoping that. Something goes right there and let you said, Mark George, could just be two games sincerely hope it's quickly figured out. He's putting position where you can operate best because what tree it will be to have him weekend we cow in in this league. Okay before we we party or we're going to wrap up the the Premier League With a couple of questions for you guys, I want to do a quick on a mini review of the outstanding. Games of of Connie weekend Monday we had Everton Smash West Brom Albion fight to covered Linden scored a hat-trick, Michael Keane and Rodriguez. Keen a must say the Ghana. Looked absolutely. Fantastic. Very exciting. Just, stoking madness to laugh to let them go off. No defeated West Ham United two one with in Katya getting on school she again, guys. He's got to. He's got a nose for goal isn't negatively is got a goal Antonio again back in a goal for Hamas Lester defeated Burnley not with Harvey Bonds. Dennis Pratt's and James just in a schoolteacher. Hobby bonds go I believe was an Ago Okay. Okay and a double assist for Estonia mark to a just absolutely. there. So the Colbourne of Fancy Primary Lettera. Aston Villa to chef tonight one nil wolves would be away from home against one city three one because of left a couple of teams for you guys WanNa WanNa go on it. Will I'm going to tear it so Willmar? Which? Georgia giving you leads question Mark will resident Monday night fans you were defeat three one against Crystal Palace. Room goes for Wolford's are permanently from Andros Townsend and Donny Vanderbeek school you consolation goal molly under is, is this preseason jitters Is this again on evidence of Ali's limitations and feel free to talk what was going on with that right side will go i. was going on with the right side. A lot basically is one of the West just what happens when you see Timothy Facie Mentor Don James. On the victim Lindelof on the same side of the pitch to just really really bad squad selection. Really bad. Management. Unable to change game voi- Hudson just proving that is really good manager and knows exactly what to do against the United team. Have won clowns face of Roy. He's a great manager. He's managed into Milan. Thank. God. God You can't you can't slow enough. That was so good but yeah, you know check you. Lined up at sense back and I thought Oh. Maybe you're not contested but. You didn't even know this that there was a midfielder playing at sense back offered nothing. Yeah I'll tell you know what to say really is just really poor and it's just it's me feeling like what's the point in the season? Glazer model it's you know you need to do a deep dive onto it and talk about the fact that they're happy with force and they're not gonNA invest and everything's wrong when the club it's awful. What more can I add? Seriously what more she not. Been So. Articulate about the hut, the UNFEELING. Fans. Just. Woeful is overseas. Or credit policy or, credit to Roy. But women united. Know you should three one to Crystal Palace I end of the season on another now? I'm depressed about it. Just move on you feel like they win commentators say that now at least. Manchester United Well I just want to move on. Comey. Don't drag up past. We've moved on from the glorious the twenty five hundred years. Good. You go think what you do is you go up now at the end this is. This is Monday night. Oh Nice. Yeah they. Did this and go. Okay, let's get your question in before the end of Party leads stuns. Fulham full three in the sense that they almost lost the game in the end Mitch. Literally just showing what to if you can still had to really well which is something that Everton a showing as well. Let the whole world seems to forget how to deal with foods who can have the bill from a decent crosses moshing. Sujoy. Is at Leeds van thirteen shots on target in the first two games and scored seven goals from them, which is not sustainable. How worried should should needs to be, but I think I think the on the point of strikers and forwards then you know talking about goes and I'm what's possible with the type of place you having the primarily. You know they they went into that Rodrigue at quite high cost. You know this is this is a record-breaking signing at he didn't put. I don't believe he broke the ten barrier-free goes last season they there seems to be a lot of trust in and when you lead you restrict it, I would say this genuine concern. We didn't bombs going to achieve are quite like him. It was looks a little bit concerned. It was looks a little bit worried I'm going to be like you just one don't worry. It's fine but but he's he's he he showed a bus paste the other day against Fulham on the left I believe for his goal definitely for chance and so he's he's ready to he's ready to play whether or not. They are going to be able to be clinical as they need to be is another concern together Yeah. I think I think some concerns but we're so desperate for them to succeed. Full manage put three away from to there is. Just, quick quick shout out to bomb of Lord in Hurricane for his one goal four assists Bam Bam one go to assists relates to. Obama bath. Let's wrap up part to listeners will be back shortly for a little bit of European football. As written a really really. Big thesis that everyone's read apparently. We're going to be reviewed not as we will read it and a quick preview of next week matches. We Know J. Lo, pop quiz full people out there. Of the three permitted local players who kept clean sheets this weekend. As far as keeping less sheets clean. Which one of the three is the old one out. I'm why? As Postcard. Social guys new Chapman to sleeker because. It was great for its get back. The Way I think we have looked quite a soft spot for it because in JV's conception, it was the first league we can kind of get teeth into and. Anybody who thought that Bay Munich might be slightly lackey or lady with diminish prep time were absolutely one hundred percent proof wrong as they decimated shelter that the truly fallen team and George we talked about shocker earlier in the week but and an eight nil drubbing just chock full of Leroy Sahni doing great things kind of forgotten that he had moved. If I'm honest like I knew it happened and that he's just turned up. And it's like him and surgery. Of play together for years and years which I think they have it younger level of. been. mentioned. But an absolutely stellar performance. I WANNA give a shout to Joshua. Who what she saw it alongside Gretzky in midfield power plan right back played a superb through ball. The weekend of three boys really feel like Henderson's for Monday's penalty. Kane hit one for Psalmist didn't come off but Kim it hit and I think it was finished off by cannot pre. AP Superb. Identify you guys caught this at all. But it's quite sad to see how far a shopper fallen. With David Workman really been able to muster anythin-. We'll catch him. Yeah. I did authorize amazing performances just I. Know It's a little bit of breaking news by Munich, could've football but was slain obsolete dismantling. And they just like eneg roof just kind of doing their thing wroblewski assisting me with the most audacious bonus. It. Went between two players and then just perfectly landed. Melissa. Time of his run it was incredible. I watched it repeat until my wife just said, what are you doing? To Stop it was yeah. Just just incredible and. said hat trick to assists for Sahni chemic- just looking like he's always played in midfield deploy their lot last season Soula back in starting lineup they didn't even have Alibaba or Al Davies just amazing performance to pull David Wagner. Yes. Very much. So things are going very, very wrong fool for a once great club big shout out to Jamal Masala on hyper pronouncing it corrects but an English lot is seventeen years old. I think he featured in a couple of substitute appearances in the last couple of games. If I remember, might've even been the last game of the season but it's come off the bench and unpack goal after coming on frigging operate respect for that, and long make continue with with English and British plays just seem to fry being abroad. Magai croissant says well, sorry just to get that in there oh Arizona. Less player to Europe. Fun On. Yeah. I just. In. This league restart when it was the. League like you said and. Fell in love with him straight about no his grace on the ball he looked so. I couldn't believe that he was someone that was twenty one years of age and just breaking into the team and played a little bit of Munich to he's he's just. Go real grace and class about him. Not Check him out if you get chance. Yeah for sure. We switched over and and it's quite heartbreak actually until you looked at Bercy emerging box starting lineup where a lot of stars for my season still coming back to full fitness which which meant, Dortmund Rinse them three nil. It was quite a bit close to that in emotional game But what joy is to see this Dortmund soy with Jaden Sunshine still there if I'm on. A. Really want him and earn proud Harland and Raina and Bellingham to just have a full season together. I don't want censure to go not not for a you guys are. Funds do but there must be a policy that thinks they could really do something exciting here. Yeah. Definitely, and you watch the palace game spoke about in this massive. literal section of media thinks why is he even thinking about moving? Just give another? Yea. Better, all of that kind of stuff but I understand he wants to come home. But yeah, that's such an exciting team Jude Bellingham and. geraniums seventeen Sancho in Harland. Can Ask you a quick question. Now when you think of Dortmund, are you finally at the point? All is doing finally at the point where you no longer immediately think of Marker Royce. Show? Yeah I think it's been. It's been that way for some time. I didn't know if it's the development. So Much of coaching and management or more development of the club's transfer systems because father is an interesting. Manager, I feel like Dortmund just seem to. Get in the market for the moment they excite and and bring them through, and you just saw it four players that are under twenty and these guys are like he's a dynamite. I don't know what it means is it it's strange like following an appreciate clip that it must be really hard for the support is not there's some more of a feeder club. It does for great great watching reading Absolutely. I'll be sick. Shorn of their team Verna. Forward to be fair, they manage to couple of Champions League performances it out. When three one verses mice with essentially the GonNa having to to fill the void because it doesn't look as they have signed. Kind of immediate replacement. Full Ferner said players like us of Poulsen and Emil Force Burke kind come forward. They do have each one which hyperloop ransom correct he is South Korean. Initially he was our Salzburg and is now life sake and a decent player be really interested to see how it develops. Wanted to give a quick shout to Verb Raymond and I think, Reticent Guardian Brain lost four one at home to Hertha Berlin and they had fans in stadium and they got beautiful halftime and full-time. So I found that they had fans back. And got our halftime time. So I just I pretty hard as bad as the the was at Norwich Piping and BS. Does as yeah. Yeah. At least you can tell yourself was just speeches then. Yeah. Can I give a quick shout out to Andre Chrome rich for oftentimes go to Hatrick. Really Nice. Must Hatrick and a play he's becomes leaving Leicester as. Yeah, you should just never leave Germany Germany's just justice fear of year. Unfortunately Leverkusen couldn't muster goal away to Wolfsburg and I. Think what we WanNa do is before we do a quick preview permanent, do get to Syria. and. Really. Just one touch on. Because this is a play that. All in love with in various forms and we've talked a lot about him moving into position of coach. I am pretty school. Despite all of your about his wonderful things that he's in. I'm sure is brilliant. I think they're supposed to be has anyone ever delivered one of these things? But make this is rubbish Wendy. This this morning move stop and constantly. Like the railways brilliant. However, let's talk. Three nil win against Sampdoria will you were impressed with this new shape and fluidity to you team Yeah Yeah? Ramsey stood out on a couldn't help. But kinda think about. Pilot Bala comes into that rope, which is really horrible because Ramsey really good game but imagine if that's Free of Rinaldo. And to Bala I. think that could be tasty. Yet killer she looks. Decent play I'll be honest I catch your money was Atalanta. But. Just just watching those low. In any way shape form a, you've a player and I don't mean technical of voice. He's a pasty ginger at guy was a year that liked that tweet about looking like he came on as a rent prayer for the Boston Celtics Pro Google. Scholar Greeny and then Gig 'cause. It's incredible. So spot on a, he posted on twitter but yeah, absolutely spot on. So yeah, we'll. Good. More fluidity. With, free is building the team in his own form of like, but without necessary that pillow player to play that role. That's the weird thing. Isn't it that? Want to say that he is, but there is definitely not a Andrea pillow player within that squat and the player that he has signed as a defensive midfielder is Western mckinney who is an absolutely fantastic leg-breaker, a winner and just constant energy I think he's he's so good as a young. American he's come straight into this team and look like he can offer them something different that they didn't have but there isn't that. Classic Pillow Silk Control the. Game Compass. Fifty. Okay. Maybe maybe they need that as Venice. Not Touches yet was mckinney because he's a your Albert. Absolutely decent decent outcome for you first performance and speaking speaking of buying eventers. Here's an interesting memorial. So with the perennial champions across Europe, so you Celtic you a PSG and Byron. Which one of those do you think is most likely to not win their league this year. I think I'm passing going to go PSG because I think there's signs of crumbling over there and someone might just we pin nip it Just seemed. So now it on. I think I still think. You've got a long way to go to win. UNDEFEATED and. An widely sell it while destroying the weekend in the I'm really GONNA, say you've ace Omar are thinking to challenge him for that this year. Yeah Really. No No I felt silly. Question. But one, hundred three. Near Perfect score on a stasis so he must always talking about. It's going to be its own have to do right at least on paper. A successful coach tree. Okay well, let's wrap up. The show with. A little couple I WANNA preview headline matches for next week. I'm picking out live awesome for star, which is happening Monday of next week quarter past eight someone that you will put like. What they're gonNA do when liberal arts prostate in the is kicking off and trying to get people out the pub at ten o'clock. About that one I think quite to. Interest in. Lymphoma arsenal also. Good so far lesser scoring and Cassius score and. We already know that OBAMA UNCONV- school wherever we'll be a stronger opportunity George for liberal. Flex their muscle. You expect any problems from arsenal expecting the. Yeah I think I think Avatar team the. Team that consistently APP causes problems and. The reasons for this I think are a little bit different law season we struggled against them because I think we're lucky evasion. A lot of time Austin will will set up defensively encounter if it goes to a bum Yang and it's in, it's happening. It's you know we're going to be in trouble I think defense does look a little bit Shakey for being here. Looked amazing I. think it'd be really really good tight contest although I do think West Ham were a bit better than everyone's giving them credit for the other day it's awesome. So. Agree could do some tricks you never think that. There was a lot. There was a lot to get awesome the other day that they didn't quite get Western. So Hopefully, we school I and. The headstrong of it always helps just quick for me. Just to answer your question they gotTa do when the are kicking out half were midway through the second half of that game. I wonder whether I'll tach is going to give them a helping hand but playing David. Luiz of making sure it's over by that point. Might. Well, definitely hopefully. Well be features something new city bus is Lester. Safeen feels the kind of being left out of everything that moment it's weird that they played the last game of the weekends on Monday. But it sure to be a bit ding-dong or a we expecting less to do at Leicester do when they come up against a top sixteen essentially are leicester a city lights. And Sega crush him will I think city might crush master yeah I feel like Lester always flattered to deceive and they're a bit of a catfish where they always look really good for a couple of weeks and then when it's time to. Bring all the spoils home. They just let you down a little bit NFL. That's why Lester my day and say might just kind of say, right we've gotTa Walmart Game Against Wolves we dispatched them easily, and now we're going to dispatch view easily Brendan. You just up Brennan Rojas my experience. A slight each. Night. And I genuinely thought last year to change lest been so good and that. Way, they just floundered against united on my last game and offered enough in no injuries. Ruin them bestow it was so. Just just. Portrayed everything that you need to know about Brandon Rodas. Mock any words on a NASA? Close. I can say it'd been a toy game if I'm honest. I would go out on a limb sale could see this one being a one or two will draw. On. I think. As good as say, look going forward. An. You can't grumble a three, one, three, one win against wars to be fat but. I don't know for me. There was just something. That wasn't. Wasn't city ask in that win to appoint an I just couldn't put my finger on. So don't. Scrutinize my tactical awareness say because it just. Didn't say easier me on not win. One of those old ones account workout what it was maybe it just wasn't clicking and maybe they've just not hit top gear. Yeah. but it just looked a little bit of a labored win. But Hey three two, three win. Nice well, we shall see. Okay I want to get school off you guys will sit lester when you're thin. Three one say. George Yet I was GonNa say the school cal I'll get to UNSEE. And Liverpool also Jay. I'm going to like. Tool. Lay. One. Oh A month ago to livable comes. Okay goes well. Not Roundup Nice Preview quick out to sea league, which Marcus still winning two, hundred, thirty, four points Georgie third in one, hundred, thirty, two, you're not even all your your eleventh. Will you one hundred? Yeah you'll below me now is what happens when you play Christian Pulisic for the first two weeks and he's injured until the twenty six. Should. Of how does it make? If you if you our listeners and you do want to join any point drop as a message, remember what coaches of my head but it was on last week's part and the week four and unconsented in so.

Alisson's Heroic Header & Leicester Win the FA Cup

"Hello welcome to podcast. You'll destination in-duct discussion and analysis of every permanent much week champions league and the europa while i'm robbie mustoe robbie earle here. Are today's topics vats hero head of madison to keep liverpool top folks alive leicester city winning that first. Fa cup in club. History preview of tuesday's pivotal match between chelsea and fox's enough have found their next star striker in the gulf fest with newcastle. That's what we've got coming up in today's episode okay. Robbie we've seen a lot of football my friend. We've played a lot of games. You've watched a lot of games. But the certain moments in much as well. I think men with them for a long period of time and this is one of them. West brom one liverpool to a winning goal from alison the goalkeeper In a game that never pull to really win to keep our hopes of salt. Full qualification for the chelsea live. It didn't look like rob the it was going to happen. conceded a goal again. Pretty pulled defensively but they then find a way back most salad with another goal for him and then the amazing moment late in the match Let's get to that point robert and yeah what you foul about watching that a guest. Two minutes of live action. That was pretty remarkable thing. I think as we witness history today in the league. It's a i had a goal by coke. If in the history of the premier league on it's going to be one of those things in twenty another twenty thirty years time they'll be playing like received the guero shit vote for stephen jabil slid the pool is going to be one of those iconic moments and so moving to the enormity of the moment in the head of the goal is that it just settle the opportunity for liverpool to still have a good chance now of making champions league football and that's what it was all about. That's why when he came upon them was. I'm sure the stories out that now but we would sit in broadcasting is he is he is. He's ruining to off. While i'm gone another goalkeeper renowned wasted time then and they never get onto it and and by the time it reached the edge of the box and then we show it play out in front of is may and we saw relate room for malaysia. The i think this dropped to the west defenders in so much. They didn't know to pick him up on what to do with civil the bull communities direct direction. Not only one of those freeze for freeze frame. Moments bull hits his head. Kinda was veering towards the goal. And i'm thinking it isn't it. It couldn't be could it on in the back of that and then it's just like he's pundit moments pandemonium in the studio is craziness all over the pitch and i just think might we we. Sometimes we'll take for granted eastern things. We've i fortunate to witness. This is one of them on. It rose on nicely. Because allison is my underappreciated. Before of the weekend. I guess my friend basically based on his heading ability under appreciated heading ability of alison. And you know the just follow on the jump the technique the kind of his neck into the head of the dealt direction. Right into that corner was pretty amazing and then you know it was a special moment not just for the goal because of this celebrations but then the emotions. We saw from him rob because he lost his father tragically in a in a drowning accident. Back in brazil in february thinking wall is very low on the media side of things. But you could see the emotion pour out of point towards aski- his teammates were all over him A really special moment. And i think you know we do try and pick out a plan from each each end and also. I'm not sure how many viewers or listeners would have seen the interview but a really powerful nice interview afterwards where sometimes full fans don't always get a window into the to the character of of some of heroes in their squads and in that teams and it was a really nice moment fun for everybody s including you don't see much of course. English is pretty impeccable. Rarely any any so. Well tell the story of his emotions. He thanked everybody. Rob got behind in in these difficult moments. Losing his father So all of that. Kind of last minute of the match. The scenes on the cogs from the manager and the coaches and i i've seen i think it was mosala got cut grabbed him and it was it was. It was an amazing moment for the team this month. Love amazing moments. But i think you know just seeing now. He has to get my an appreciation for the weekend end and You know it was a it was an amazing moment from from all this an amazing human being. Yeah and you make a good point bobbie. Choice is appreciated. Because we know him as a goalkeeper was the last week against southampton Six seven big saves in the game that mutual. They got the job. Done things to know. When i'm not able make a meeting good point golf. But sometimes i think general public funds football followers having a window behind Football 'cause rule human beings will have issues problems at home that we pull on strip. Wait we get enough team. We do saying. Sometimes these lots of other things going on behind the scenes that people don't know about you chime. Musk from from the general public. And and you're right. It was not only the goal and the time in the moment importance but also that just a realization that will human beings you know. Jesse lingo is a great example of getting critism on social media. And then people realize he'd had some issues in his life his mother you. I think president system siblings and it was. It was one of those moments. So i think i'll always remember where was went now is in school that goal Let's hope that for liverpool's putting view on the football front of eight means it's the platform to to step into full because that's what this is all about in terms of if the football piece it's about liverpool now having a chance to to make it into full and they play The flight away crystal policy that lasts two games. And it's interesting. Because i now on this week i think we slightly different in terms of why we think or how we think that might go and i think that they manned up the longer it goes and the results liverpool and defeats of teams like chelsea. Maybe lester it's become very possible now. And i think if they do win those two games does and it will come down to goal difference with western chelsea a big game for them of course on jewish. We'll talk about I just you know. Apart from that moment. I'm sat in my chair thinking i didn't expect not to win this game against west brom robot expected to be next to but i'm thinking this is this is why i think liverpool will fall a little short two reasons the senate bucks a young inexperienced centrebacks the again look so certain moments putting in key moments in the striker for west brom. Robson got in got in behind three times three times in on the goal and of course scored the first opportunity really early on and then the just the the the ability to to to create opportunities given teams that sit back and defended and i thought we looking at one. I'm thinking yeah this is. This is what i fade about liverpool. Now they get that momentum them as you of talk 'til you might really help them. But go to bernie rob where fans are going to be there and we know that strike is they've got and how strongly commu defensively crystal palace. A plane with a little bit more abandoned at the moment really enjoyed the game today so i. i still think there for sure. I'm not going to change now with a couple of games. Left the those two reasons. I still still think. Valid rob got tonight goalkeeper. First time ever in the premier league so they got away with it and whether they can the next two games. We'll have to wait and see. Yeah as you know may be motion. And i almost feel like it can galvanize i think moments lot. I don't think the money just sandison. not sure. Allison becker. I think players around much. Take something from not wanna do kinda for him. What he's been through and what he's done. It was really interesting. We did a little breakdown on on the back line in the day. One trent alexander in particular Game going through and look looking buchan in good nick and to some of these best when he's really interesting with the two in the halls I was. I was thinking about how we could try and explain this because we know in all the different units in defending units and met building for the these kind of routines that you go to get people in the right places. Now as rich williams is going towards the bull the should be knock on effects but not sell evens. It was used to say almost think these a piece of rope between all the defenders executive right well news bring him in with men if he comes back. It takes me out while you'll certainly see on anyone looks back on that. Westbound field goal is reached. Williams goes in not sending if anything Your own way instead of closing that gap because the ropes pulling it goes the other way now those things come with time with reagan on the training ground with understanding. And sometimes if you a vocal my next thing you can as he's going eastern come in and go out and he's talking to you when you got two young twenty isolde center box who haven't been through got ragu probably So many reps new teams. I seem what we're seeing. how An three times today school wants. Trent came across wounds. Keep made a good save on straight bulls over the talk. I can guarantee you. These twenty five of those bulls coming against burnley and it should be the reason why i think for being. You might end up playing that. Maybe with not phillips just to deal openly Yeah remember they they went to. I'm filled and beat liverpool near the season so it's a difficult game for them but i lost. It's also businesses familiar. went back. there felt they were. He was missing midfield. he's come back into midfield. And you know there's five injured cinemax football cup fast per incredible five more experienced defenders vici. They bite spend. Abc news in quebec down as well but they got the job done night like they've got two more to go and can you can build it up again. Just gonna save just move on chip hot to west point being big size achieved the premier league. And what they put up how they showed in how they play in this league. A pets pet talked about it. Being the tilthis league he's been inspecting. He's been in germany on you. Just never know. Nelson's a given you get you have to have that you you did in liverpool. Go keeping fist Headed get some point. West brom play dwell. Look dangerous and we denominate moutons. We're gonna see some on the big train janis Against the big six teams but a muscle. Each team played really well to really committed him. What was what was fascinating. Gang the westbound funds. If you're a relegated side an annual fans and not been able to watch your season must be incredibly frustrating but they would love to see that love to see the heart. They played with the passionately plate. With an your ryan which football and that's you know we saw it and not change. Sheffield united everton. The last game Teams of the down. You know nothing really. But but pride to play for. And i thought west brom to a man what the socks off a made it so difficult to find a way through and of course the goalkeeper. That wasn't wasn't picked up with that set. As of course sold to win it but i think as a good mention there was always talk about some of the smaller sides. You know when this kind of dominated by the big clubs as a lot of amounting football. But you're right it's it's a shame for west promised. Brilliant football club. It's an old historic football club. A real loyal fan base and they will love the way that this team played just before we move on again ties para got the assist for their goal rob I always enjoy watching him. Play such such graceful ability without left for do you think is a definite primitive nick season i will be surprised if he's in chump shipped rob spies whether it's english clubs zoll clubs from abroad. That goes around the. Will you see these tank temporarily goals now inside about a he the call with last westbound Double figures and so zinc good. I mean that will go round. Might be tallying clubs. spanish clubs. But i certainly think there'll be one or two Wanted to english clubs primarily clubs. He could and i know you think step up. But i'm thinking if i could walk into a southampton brian. Some of those middle teams it could do newcastle Now gingy way you see an for today or it could go in that and in baseball rob He's got all as you say he can play So good performance brought westbound obviously defeating heading down. Naza give a good account themselves on the primarily. Let's move onto my friend. Who really what. Someone say is beat was the biggest game of this weekend it was the fa cup. Final is probably more funds chelsea against less front-seat less stable as ever forget the odds zim. Forget who who in those games. It's about who gets the job done and lasted city brandon relgious of one themselves in faecal. My friend yeah. And then about you. But i didn't mind who won the game but i did enjoy the scenes afterwards in the in the smiles and celebrations and fans in a stadium. Wembley for a cup final. Absolutely loving it. I would probably add the maybe maybe just a little bit less in a tiny bit more than chelsea given this assessment of course every out up trophies important to challenge and they've won tons of over the last decade now But less to really enjoyed robin and performance. We saw a wonderful gulf. Miri tillman's midfield plaza. The everybody appreciates his is a real talent. It can do a little bit of everything with the way that he plays wonderful. Strike into the top corner. I will just follow on rob with a goal while. I just picked out that this wreck. Y'all do the second half now. Robin and chelsea pushing and it's been a bit of a achilles heel for chelsea. What haven't really looked like scoring too many goals and then go. County has the ability to be very pretty well where he's got forward and he's made things happen you know we've talked about in many times. Just defensively scrape lab but also getting forward law. The last couple of years on the goal it was. i tried to find angler county. The and people haven't seen or didn't realize please have another look at it because the run from say is is not a great run as a midfield player because he's run ahead of the ball anything any mistake is made or interception. Whatever he's out the game defensively and that's what happened. It was kinda brought with the hand on the arm. I think there's the perez not board arms close to his body and it came off his thigh. I which also gives you a little bit of a chance on that one. But i'm gonna counties. Trend receivable is out of it then. Dj was on his own to midfield plaza. Billions gets a ball on sticks in the top corner details and they. You can't always plan for every scenario. I just if say was in his normal position alongside georgina. That goal probably doesn't happen. But that's the only thing i'll pick out from a unattached girl side of things where our member rob midfield play. I'm sure that the was don't go. Don't run forward to early. Yeah wrong with play on the ball or the pass and you're out with a game get back in effect something that might happen immediately. I just thought it was one of those But take nothing wife blister on the strife tillman's is still a lot work to be done from there. Beautiful strike into the top corner but it was. It was a great game is great to see fans at wembley celebrating a especially for the. Fox's yeah twenty thousand people in narran Yeah bit of atmosphere of two rival funds. Play four it you know the the the the the expectancy of a cook is still the same you know. The fa cup has been competition. We've grown up. We've seen it you know. Wake up in morning. Put it on at nine. Am and what she pm kickoff and felt eight eight eight eight grabbed fitness style with fines. Being in that Agree with you. I think i always wanted to go. Low contain making rooms fool with the bill will be. Yeah so that if he does full. Because i guarantee you and even if angle can take was roger was in jail gina and make the run. I guarantee you. He would have got close. Got something next to jill. Gina doesn't could your teen as a different type. He's gonna sit off gonna let you play. Go on go and go county is a muster it getting full in block in. Its closing down it making it difficult. So it's one of those things and there was some big kohl's with with the Managers robot so a question. James played in what we'd say public different positions It was right. Side wing reese james was ziggurat. Saudi centered by now whether that was a worry about the pace of sydney volume not to go in and behind it up. No thomas to cohen benchellali didn't start lonzo started on the left. Unsigned again. the for the mind you wouldn't say gas wrong rumble. Recalls that made in chelsea didn't win the match interesting. call us open from Brendan judges who started a ios eight peres ahead of arthur james madison and i'm thinking big big pitch light wembley get the ball into the modest Feed the front too but that was not anti came on in the second half after. Say whatever you know the tactics. Whatever this elections were brandon. Got it right in because of that most. Oh my under appreciated. The week goes to brandon rogers. Not least because brandon's always seen as brandon the bridesmaid. These always second basket doesn't quite win. Things didn't win with liverpool. People don't really recognize when he was at celtic. And when in cooks valley. Tony discussed football. So there's always been a little bit a field in english. Football yahtzee really delivered. The goods really did against the fancy chelsea teammate. In good neck that well-managed on the big stage with funds in when the pressure was on his team delivered for him and the came. Good in native. Casper's michael saves later on to to make chill. I thought it was a big day for him. As you say representing not football club in the lady did representing the only group that we know the horrific Accident happens to the many sons taking on and seeing those scenes if the players the ownership group the funds robin any just took me by two to three weeks ago. european super league's in how teams like last. They would never win. Child will probably never win cups. We'll never be that team. You can grow and possibly become a big sixteen and stood for all those things and for that reason. Brendan or this to be my own depreciate for the wake for getting the job in kind of flying the flag for not always big six teams have to win every now and i think also unsure whether it is a little bit under appreciated but in general manager i think he appreciated certainly lesser. Say certainly at celtic another. But you're right. I didn't know seen as as a legit elite manager but he should be. It should be for what he's done now. Multiple clubs as a good shot and in raja's an and i i enjoy watching him with his this god down but with his with his media faceoff unjust going mad and celebrate and big smile because he's so he does placed down but i think it was one moment where he's like let himself go love talking up in the air or the plaza frowned up in the air. And you're right. He made some big 'cause one of madison. Whether there's something on injury shoes we know. He made that mistake going out when he should have gone out But that was a big cool. Just on the chelsea when robin on thomas calls pretty quiet i get that and i do kinda get reese james thing as a negative move back would move is a back foot. Move is a move that would mean going forward. You're not as good as pretty quiet. A going forward is not as good as reese james on osgood as callum hudson that could that position now. I granted alonzo's it'll be more attack minded potentially or or scoring minded than ben show but that was that was a. I understand why it did it. But ultimately is going to reduce effectiveness ford rob and also can you like i. I'm not seeing it so when you start zero that keeps christian pulisic on the bench. It keeps habits out the style mason. Mount no problem. An i like verners while even though he's not scored the goals that you expected so a couple of calls there. That didn't work out for him. And the frustration will be that expectation would have been that we're going to win this cup against Let's see we talked. What are they were was going into the game so interesting interesting match. It leaves chelsea's season some walk on the edge absolutely on the edge. Rob is these two teams meet ridge on tuesday three fifteen eastern time on nbc s n is time for the robbie earle ult- so friends point sportsbook. I'm giving us the odds for what is a huge game now with champions league repercussions at stake and the odds go. Ask chelsea to win minus one forty three. The jewel is plus to sixty and the less to win. Is it plus all hundred so a friendship points. I think believe that going to be on what we used to cool. But russell a taylor to on that. Maybe they won't be the riott federal to chelsea at stamford bridge. I have to say. I totally disagree with that. I disagree with the thing. That brennan is not manager. I think he'll enjoy dealer. Enjoy a night. I think it's good to enjoy. I think we'll get together. And i think collectively say criminological chimneys over again. Let's let's guarantee ourselves talk full spot. We deserve it. Yeah well. I mean the club will desperately want winning. The fa cup does not qualify them for next. Season's champions we know it does the europa league so they everything the playful. But i don't know whether i'm with you. May i see the plus. Four hundred is kinda high. I've got to say that. But i mean if you'll tell us to call you'll chelsea a what's happened to you at wembley stadium and now you got a chance to while you're in jeopardy of dropping out the top four. I do think they they all favorites. I'm not sure stronger. Favor is voiced by sportsbook saying barons. Mine full three months one full day. Yeah i think is where i'd be putting my couple of on. Yeah with chelsea Such a is such a critical game. Lester shake off little and stuff no again away at stanford bridge weather are going to be fans of course which makes a difference. Yeah i Yeah i just i mean. We got crooked end of the season. This is a huge game. We only among my my well into dulles is looking at possible. Full you last. I'm with brandon. Yeah i just you know it's interesting. Melvin will will will maybe get into more discussion active on x. focused which comes upon on wednesday after these games bull just a little bit entrusted didn't tell us to kind of what came out after the awesome be. Also it was just a little strange issues him in training he didn't like the change night in. I'll okay then. They didn't play that well. Makeup the changes at end didn't work and got beat competition that i think they would have been favorite to expect to win. So it's now pressure on them against this game. And i'm just telling just line. What could we see. Now we've seen things are going. Well we we know this family grow. This english. football is different is absolutely just when you sing. You gotta hold on it. And i'm a good spot. It bites you on the on the backside and he's just other little maybe not a by. He's out of silk on the box side and he many. Yeah i mean. He lost at home to arsenal and he lost the final. That would be expected to win. You're absolutely right. You could never never think that you've cracked it until we found i. I'm not said we don't the. He thought that now he realizes right. Now it's been asians and he's like some may make too many changes or learn some lessons there and he would have done but you're right to losses two losses. Massive games going forward now. Now we see what he's made of now was made up of the selections is motivation. We know the economy is is heart on his sleeve and tells as it is How is gonna come out on tuesday a little nervous about that situation or fired up on the front foot aggressive to win the game. It's gonna be fascinating because you know we know that. The champions league final later in the month goals twenty nine th of my isn't it but this super important for chelsea to finish in the top four should be cracking cracking game on tuesday.

Yeah looking forward to that one Let's go back to the weekends games. A few interesting results came up. Future will complaints tottenham to wolves nil ryan mation with. I think quite difficult task because it was doing a little bit Background work on this game. Mobile i'm thinking. It's gonna find a way to motivate this group main champions league. Footballs gone europa. Legally even europa conference rob which is like visit to european competition. I'm not sure spurs. It'd be dropped so desperate to get to about competition which i think it'd be finished. Sixth or seven full team with you know the guy was the son. The hurricane delhi up front looks in on papers. Great just writing this group. I thought was interesting. They got the job done. They want to do nail. Is it for them. Isn't really wait. Wait with with european europa league. Now yeah i. I wouldn't guarantee him that they've got wednesday aston villa home or team. The never stop the good side. Chuck gradations getting close to the fitness. And all your watkins etcetera etcetera. None the less throwaway thus difficult. So i didn't even know i mean they might find themselves in the in the europa conference. I'm sure that format of that. Tournament has been finalized. So that's not good funny team spurs last time out they get well beaten by legionary robin and there was a moment. Today are looked at the game. And i and i'm looking at delegating evolved in bail and sun and kane wings on at this point and like and Thought reagan was better left back in gang. I prefer ripe because well. I think he should be the number one choice in that position. Still still stop. Bob team rob spurs you know and we know that the canes futures about and same with baylor maybe deli as well but if a new manager came in netted side this group. This could play as that with good attacking flair in a little. Bit of mixed them defensively. Of course in about we know that scenario that they really really need help. But i don't know. I mean i i want to say i like spurs with all the lights out on what they looked like in certain games when you watch last saturday liege like an and it's just a. It's a bit of a mess right now. May i think that's what i'm saying. I kind of like some of the bits. But it's a bit of a mess with a manager and certain players no fans in that stadium and the revenues been lost at the moment. It needs a little bit of a shake-up reset coming together in the summer. New manager as soon as possible. Please daniel i think this i always saying. And they got to try and go again and regroup of a great preseason and come back on the front foot but this season has been a bit of a nightmare. A home arena. Thing did not work There's always a risky move. Start with him now. Got to pick up the pieces which is never easy after. A kind of situation. It's interesting because it is reciting and walking them today. And i'm saying cain kinda run already from the puck team that we knew what we get into a good play zen mobile mccain come to go the next level to Going around to circle to now was question. Not sure he's been that much progress robin you say you know. Chino was a cl- ability boo club together in tickets jump. League champions league final in and mitch got more respect. Somebody's gonna woman job again with this group of players. We keep saying local players apple for some. It's not being missing. Let's talk about james. I've been going in in good in good full time united. They traveled down to brighton with hopes of them. Still maybe champions league or if not european football ended up joining the game. One one When when the one down came back into game benmahmoud these first goal foot for west time. united they post china obviously tongue. Try and get that winner that they wanna deputies after the game. Obviously disappointed will please these team. One down Kinda foot west town. I just got the sense. Watching and declan is blocking the team. You love your view. I just got the feeling. Just look too little bit. Like consumer running on empty towards the end of the game just felt like it might be starting to catch up with many of the same plays play many games and i was thinking about this. I think it was this morning. Something when was coming out saying in gangs have for days. We don't really realize what can be taken out on. The jesse players does in jesse lingle's didn't quite have that spring about them that we normally see. Yeah and that might be the reason. They didn't do the. I thought they might do. Rubble dismounting from us. Tom and i expect said before the game that they could out power. Brian little bit as a real punch to their attack. We know the way that brian play. And and of course david moyes will know that as well. It's much built up from the back. I just you know you know. How much i i appreciate Unstressed your importance of turnovers in a map pressing a mess when goals scored and i just thought they missed an opportunity throughout the game to sustain attacks by this so when it breaks down stay neck stay high press up shallow of energy this buzzwords of counter pressing israel when they get the ball when you have it and and you give it to them back again and and i was disappointed. That have an attack. O'brien win the ball. On the majors dropped softener. Allow bright into play around and maneuver the ball up into that on offer and it was annoying for west ham and it was taking time away from what they wanted. Yeah of sustaining and honoring the pressure and ask more questions but again you make a point there. And maybe they're linked where the kind of tie it and it's easy to drop-off Embiid more patient with football. I mean to be critical of western because the remarkable season employers have stepped manages brilliant job. And he's is cracking the whip throughout the season and never seen satisfied a wig enough where around the top four. We're going to give gov given a go. I just still a little bit. more aggressive. Nature to that game might have helped him against a brighton. Team sometimes gets a little bogged down playing out and make mistakes and concede goes but we didn't see it. They'd get the goal from side. Ben rama another good signing minute. Really nice finish into the far corner to get themselves point but they didn't really dominate the game that's what i'm saying dominate the game in any way against a team. That's fourth bottom in the league table. That was the only disappointment but again. You know a a fashionable manager in some ways in graham potter against the you know. The unfashionable in in some ways and david moyes enjoy the game. Just expect a little more. I was so. I thought it was a very david. Moyes commented when he was asked at the end of the declan rocks and he was okay and then we get back. we got. We were sitting on that planning. Look how good is still in good and come back. And it's just david moyes isn't it. I think that's the way he plays How declaration icebox. Go to be a bonus for west. I'm certainly for england and the team with him. Say if they can push on it and maybe make one of those you Because if i think it'd be nice like ignition for the work and the turnaround the stuff of going with the you know was struggling to stay in the league. Just a season ago Let's move on the gay. Make new new castle sleep manchester city in a game that gain. I think we both thought. Well comeback can come off in newcastle safe now months city. Got the champions league and maybe not the first eleven out. There was a big contingent of the main places substitute. So the engagement is a dangerous. Paul newcastle three manchester city for faron torres. Hat trick. kind of been thinking and we shouldn't before i think we were doing. Some highlights have lost louisiana. And we go. And he keeps. Chipping these goals. I might be nine also season in full in competitions. And you kind of thinking Could he be the missing creepy missing. Paul for them could with the guero going in the way they play zoo role for him going forward. There's definitely a role for him rub. He played a lot in the group stages. I believe and again. There's so many games much. I've got but he played a law in the group. Stage of the champions can yeah or in the league cup a champions league school two goals. Leon yeah yeah and You know he's got the physical attributes aguire or mass compared compare coverage is useful. But he's not as quick voice not as powerful. Please call called. Scores brain is called scores brian. And we've seen it before and again a quick. He's a super skillful. he's not powerful. He's not tall but he gets himself in the right spot many times in his first goal that it will freak over the top the volume the third goal comes off the was it the sable the poster well and once again. It's hard to think that he will be the starting number nine mic season and an easy answer to their striking worries a little bit in some ways if they wanna find striker but what a good plan to have around the club mean. He's super young. Play can play. Why plaza strike. But i think of all the plaza plan not nine position other than coverages. More like a strike in the way that he that he moves and the way the around the goal when the boards close by so impressed with him throughout guinea isn't going to be in there on it for the final even though he scored three goals. But i'm just impressed with this guy and you know when you got the city changes. There are often some strange results in. It's not easy to be against the others in the city's squad the play when the biggest games on that but found charles medic right case The the he's got big future club yet. Twenty one years of age full goes already and it might just be. You know you're looking towards. I think will kind of guesstimate will be the first eleven sent me the shape of the first eleven. You know with sterling. Not making not jason aguado. Find charles might be one of those who might have something to play on in that game another thing. We had a of on it for months years. Run out against newcastle. We had a premier league stall for sixty five year old goalkeeper. Cool sculptor austin. This little mentioned to him wrote because about some kind of mentality off to hop to be the said goalkeeping. Ernest scored like much situates You really gonna play you train. Every day he goes to all the ribbon routine and the wet in the mall in the rain that happens in a new goes a lot with no prize at the end of the weekend. It it must have been a special day for frisco causing. He conceded three goals but he was on the winning side and thirty five years of age kind of in a way to take your house to him to him. I'm pep guardiola for appreciates what you've just said called winners along win is in manchester. Aries probably kicking boards into the other goalkeepers and woman them up and you know and and for the money to say you know. Yeah you have a game. You deserve that you out talk. Also i thought it was a nice gesture miles away from the first goal hamels ten years give them a breath but now good good pro been around forever and they loved. You're you're right. You've got the winning. Winning side is nice to see. You know something like that because appreciative for some of the work goes on behind the scenes that people don't really recognize and Yeah very very good to see. I think the interesting thing of just we move only full for the other games. The pep actually said he plays a big role in our dressing. Many you people think something about in that pet likes these either. One of them is shake festival. Maybe you know the british bulldog go something about him that there's more than just go. And as we both know loving spent allies industrial. Do you need a couple of those kind of people around while in office dot kind of guy. Let's make with the games game lead. Run a low the burnley my friends and by the way. I'm gonna hopefully on trump ships in jim. I do an under appreciated team of the season saying chuck harrison mr. Mostar think he's nine. Goals seven assists. Now is a wide player who gets no mentions for england but is playing. The level is on loan on chastity. Sneaky good my friend is a sneaky. Little why play. Yeah yeah he is and in this team with that manager and the way that they play players like that of an opportunity to put up some. Good numbers roughing. You're on the other side out. Coster before patchy bamford. I'm not sure patrick. Bamford is to score a ton of goals. Many of the premier league teams is just a click scores. His goal rodrigo comes on a million bucks. The way they play does seventy eight goals and if midfields now eight. Yeah so yeah. I mean it's a good show. And that's the way they play. Enjoy watching need united allegiances even though the new ones the premier throat and a huge club competitive burnley on engine nights and even even in the lower leagues championship championships. Spent more money than bernie have spent so. It's not the size of football club. And the money that's going to go into strengthen the team again of course leads trying to that bernie. I feel maybe now try and do that. Robin probably need to do that. Focus very aging squad known as probably should invest over in the squad not but now good good performance from agents. We kind of enjoy it. We expect the goal to come. Didn't disappoint four not lead united There are the games so we can talk talker. I think i think the evanston one is the last game that we've just finished studio where to nail sheffield united one Disappointing for everton Great of course for for donald jefferson. Seventeen year old striker is seeing debut. So a stop for him. I guess the winning going after eight minutes. An afterwards on our show after the The long day today you know. We summed up a little bit robin. And i and i thought cafe about what i wanted to say about everton and it was mostly disappointment from the first seven games where they won a competition. Some some was building. Gotta say for having good parts. Google keep england national goalkeeper free and hold your immediate good young some cases defenders. You've got atlanta a no. He's been injured for bail. Had been a really good experience holding midfield player. How much rigas technical ability. It's got charlotte and you've got a couple of good number of. They've never looked too good team. They've never looked to grooved a dominant a good football team that i expected and it will go down to cost some the players up. Sneak goes down psychology. Not that hasn't has made more of the some of the parts you know when you say that some of our team is better than some of its parts everton and it's like the target was european football then not gonna make it. They're not gonna make european full right now. Go difficult games last couple of games and i just. I just felt it was time to express my disappointment. Yeah i don't know. I know that everton funds a forever disappointed. Maybe or don't meet the expectations of what they have of that club. They should have done better. They should them better team. Should look more groove. It should like a shoot like dominant side ever to now some of the plaza. They've got and you kind of know what you're going to get well you don't and the hopeful goodison park is unacceptable. Reading for the play's gone absolutely. I think nine defeats our eighteen. Fifty percents of the game two months and then they'll every every funds love club. Nobody loves khloponin. Haven't we know we know in findings it here in the us. We used to go to the balling in manhattan. It tells them this pool is some funds back in the u k. You rightly they because he's about stunts standards saying things and and at the start of the season you know we. We have our silly after full games title and can stay in that tongue in cheek. But what we're saying and mostly most disappointing thing for me. Rob is i don't call. Jalalqsi is going to go in and raise the standard. And at first he said after a while. We're not champions league if we you know we talk six. And then he even now top six mafia superfood for them and they played today rob a team that have concealed under so many goals have lost twenty eight game scored eighteen goals and they were struggling to get a general struggling to get jewel and these so many good things about this football club in terms of the own ship in terms of the setup must branch and then that look and expedience manager. Who handles big play can attract big players. Seems like there's money there in three four five years things twenty twenty-five it's thing they're going the best stadiums in the conjure living setup rob to go apart from the pitch the most important the on the picture still got to be play catch up and until that happens and until today was nothing about ability because they got mobile. You've talked about the team. You go is an international run. Oh keep it you go send the box keen and go free and alan As is is is the top echelon in it cavaliers golden michelle. Malkin can be much talent. Wise much to sheffield. Tonight is problem but when when you attitude when you focus when your desire on a day i wrote my first note on on my my my research for this game was everton half the want more than sheffield unite. That was not finishing tactics and all the rest shouldn't be difficult given your there. I'm of what they could do. And and so listen one. I'm sure we the the podcastone ravaging because it's such a big kobe so it's so wannabe and the just get get it right but lie you. I'm disappointed for the abbot funds. More than at this point in the club. I'm not never been fine. I don't i you know i. I watch a game to look a lot going out the way they play. But i'm disappointed for the advocate funds. Just went. I think they felt with taking this step. It kinda looks. Well they really again just final coming from me on this robin with everton is the again i i understand. The everton fans realize that they on going to go to being a great team in talk was never. But you always wanna see while we're getting bow. You know what we finished sixth or whatever. But i can see what. We're trying to do He he had a great season. He was as good as i thought it was going to be. He got great numbers. He was good defensively. He's come on as a player in this position like the way that we're playing the system alike the philosophy. I just don't think there's enough of that. There's not enough of warm fuzzy. Feeding your club is is heading direction again. Evident fines of way of being over critical. Then you know maybe we are. But i just think they wanna see a direction and a sign of encouragement. The while you're right rob the pieces that got in place you know you've got big deng because you number two to remind them to his little bit of dr knowledge to the whole thing. It seems like a really nice mix some disappointed. We're not seen a better football team given those pieces and You know it's a big summer. I'm sure they try preseason more time they'll go again but yeah i just was so disappointed. Everton's result tonight. Yep as well as i was just before we go just go on a couple of mentions. I'm gonna down the center foolish because the policy in villa to does christian. Ben checkered willing goals. Look you the pro. Rubbing must is in contrast to his wife christine. Ben check so pumped full in one or go to mention nathan teller. Who came on for for danny ings. School to go up to the minute. She faced primarily goal assists for the awoko in the winning goals. A young play in Valeo was the outlet latinos academy play. These deb your school to go showed so more experienced disproving pyro why remain on the. Yeah you call on this level of the goalkeeper. I sense some serious talking to be done. At fulham with paul the ownership group on the group of players who stays who goes But yeah it's it's a big of a number of clubs whether or not just just what will come in from me real about those. Yes i'm wondering about the crystal palace and we are thinking that roy hodgson may be having his last season the football club but what he's done hasn't gone unnoticed me a new as well. Yeah often four to It's a cautious shape and a cautious posture in terms of that block. Yeah and when they had to fight for points a little bit then. That's what we saw the safe. Now and i gotta say is a diff- from palace. Approach this new son and they brought in a probably as a wide player as looked so good is a number right so in a amid your three with the ability to get for and attack box a box bad times he his pass range his shoe in assisting is made. This team looks so different. Towns in pawtucket. Front czar Doing his thing again. Got another goal scored a goal. And i gotta go. And i just liked palace. I've enjoyed a palace game because you know what again and you understand it. Because of given situation that got to get the points for san the league but i enjoyed a little bit of a free at crystal palace and you know weeks and months will of course revisit policy. I was going with a different manager. Does he does he. Continuous certain plans contractor looks so different. Right now I just thought it was. You know i just wanted to mention how how this looks. And i wonder if we had another year whether we see a bit more of this. Maybe we wouldn't rob may be. There is going to be a change. I just think they've got to be super careful of who. Police gophers next month with these plans contracts. Many of them coming up. Christiane ben tech emily. Hodson may be both contracts boast on do things different than friend. Go to wrap it up on the weekend. I my unless the city for the face. Time in a feminazi league gold. The headed for the first time in the league's history. We'll be back on wednesday thousand. Nine hundred ninety will look back at much. We thirty seven games. Tuesday and on wednesday on tuesday. The big one is chelsea face less than what's being described as a champions league playoff game for fidel he's most together with the two lobbies central western listening. Be safe be healthy.

Explainer 183: Why does the Rugby World Cup matter for Japan?

"The Twenty Nineteen Rugby World Cup one of the world's biggest most prestigious sporting events is getting underway in Japan represents. A massive soft power kill for the country. Not only is the elite tournament never been held there before but it is also the first time the Rugby World Cup has been hosted. CPI in Asian nation so what should we expect. He's multiples Tokyo Bureau chief funerals well. I think that's very enthusiastic support. That's for sure. I don't know if you were following. The training match that Wales held in Kyushu and fifteen thousand people turned up just for the training on a Monday morning. I think it was a big surprise to the team. They were thrilled and you know the the crowd sang the Welsh national anthem. I mean it was quite a spectacle and I think that's going to be replicated. Often down the country country in the law of enthusiasm very dedicated fancier rugby. Is You know it's a niche sport but I think just the excitement that this is Asia's first rugby happy well competence in Japan. You know you really feel and you know you see the streets. Even in Tokyo Austria has got the banners up and you're seeing pictures of everywhere at the moment and you mentioned the tournament is taking place across the country. Can you tell us about some of the city's yes there are twelve venues and what they've tried to do is really spread them up and down. Japan Japan said that the whole country gets her. You know a bit of the excitement a nine. There are some very interesting ones that come itchy which was a place that was really destroyed in the earthquake quake. Soon nominee in two thousand eleven is one of the venues which is very exciting. I think there and I think that's quite an emotional venue because obviously you know being two very very tough times times actually the final for the Rugby World Cup we held in Yokohama. I think a lot of people are hoping that the national the New National Stadium which will be ready for the Olympics would be ready for the the Rugby World Cup is not quite ready so the fine will be in Yokohama which is amazing stadium. NFC enormous so you know I think up and down Japan. This is going to be a lot of interest and I I think they've really tried to to share out so that the whole country is involved and this is going to be quite different kind of cultural experience for people can go into Japan to flu rugby. Expect what would it be in for. One of the things that made me small was about tattooing which became a huge issue. I mean anyone who follows pretty much. Any sport. Now knows knows that most athletes are upset. You covered in tattoos. These days tattoos are still a very tricky subject in Japan and people don't like to see them in Jim's they don't WanNa see them. In hot springs brings. If if you have a tattoo in assuming pool example you have to cover up where vast and the rugby players have been asked that when they're going to places like gyms or hot springs springs please cover up obviously on the page on the day they can they will reveal their tattoos but you know they just said when they're out and about could they please adhere to the cultural preferences in Japan although having said that some sense said for the six weeks the tournament they can relax those rules but just it's up to the owners of the hot springs to say whether they can black people in that was medical. Tokyo Bureau Chief Funeral Wilson. Let's hope she keeps it. Tattoos covered up over the course of the next six weeks. Now the rugby World Cup of course comes Japan keeps one eye on next year's Olympic Games. Here's the David Warren who is the ambassador in Tokyo between two thousand eight and two thousand is an twelve. I'm sure that it will be a trial run for the Olympics. This is the largest Japanese hosted event since since the football World Cup many years ago and that was shared with the Republic of career so the Japanese will certainly see this nation and White World Cup tournament as an opportunity to demonstrate that they have the facilities that have the organization they have the managerial ability to pull off one of the world's big iconic events and they will have the Olympics of twenty twenty very much in mind as they demonstrate all all those skills and you think that both these events helped put Japan onto the sporting map not just on the managerial map splitting up of course Japan is on the map before they hosted the Olympics in nineteen sixty four and I mentioned the football World Cup which was in the early years of the last decade so they've been on the international sporting for some time but the Rugby World Cup is important for two reasons firstly they'd been trying to get this World Cup for many years. This was the third attempt I think at which they had attempted a source to host the event and they were finally successful and rugby itself is a sport where the Japanese he's have grown in international profile over the last few decades not least in the two thousand fifteen World Cup in the UK when they beat in South Africa in Brighton to that memorable match and suddenly will realize that the Japanese team modern Japanese were forced to be reckoned with Brash just being upset of all along the history of sports was what do you think it does. Japan's brand on an international scale. Does it do for Shinzo Albania's government looking at it in a non-political sense those of us who are friends of Japan and spent our lives living in Japan visiting Japan and who knew oh the efficient organisation of Japanese life we know also the warmth of the Japanese personality we can see that this is going to be an opportunity for the Japanese to demonstrate what they call a multi now she that is a sense of hospitality a sense of welcoming people from around the world for a major international event and all the signs are that this is going to be a very powerful theme of the tournament. It's a nationwide tournament so that visitors to Japan fan rugby supporters from all the various teams will see the whole of the country the first English match I think this coming Saturday we'll be up in Sabbath in the Northern Ireland and the stadia all over the country and all four islands and indeed in the area affected by the terrible earthquake tsunami eight years ago so it's an opportunity to send a very strong sense of the Japanese brand of warmth of hospitality of welcoming across the country to an international audience from Shinzo Abbas point of view. It's also very important. He's been prime minister for nearly seven years. He's still in a strong strong and pretty unassailable domestic political position. He doesn't have very strong political opposition. He doesn't have an obvious successor. Although people are beginning to talk about about one or two possible names so he will see this as an opportunity to demonstrate that the country that he leads politically is a country that has a very strong and attractive international international profile but although politics and sport are a little next in Japan as in many other countries and they're a senior politicians who've played an important role role in developing Japan's rugby capacity. This is a sporting tournament not a series of political events and I think Japanese will be sensitive to the need to keep those issues separate so David Warren. Thanks for coming in a lot. It seems rests on the fortunes of Japan's will be will cut the Olympics fix just around the corner. The tournament organizers and the country's leaders will be hoping that it's resounding success the monocle twenty four. I'm reese James.

Chelsea/NBA Crossover with Goran Dragic

"Well after two matches against manchester united in the premier league chelsea manchester united seemed to be a bit even both scoreless draws. The team share the points available in their two meetings. We will talk about it. Plus it's an nba. All star themed episode. And we're going to be joined by former. Nba all star and soccer superfan goran dragic so venus number one chelsea football podcast continues volcanoes a welcome everybody to the official chelsea f c podcasts. As i mentioned in the intro we will be joined by heat. Sarr born dragging of the eastern conference champs might have been. nba champs if you say healthy during that nba. Finals gordon drag dragages a massive soccer fan. So we're very excited to have him on this podcast minute. We've had a lot of players on this podcast. Kendrick nunn john crotty. Who's a part of the commentary booth. And now gordon drag it. So we're very excited about that. Proudly miami proudly miami show here bay set of that's where the network studios the s. Cmu network studios are located here in miami. So let's talk about this big match up. That chelsea had a manchester united boy. These matchups basically to wet teams. Not much to talk about. Outside of controversy and match one was as belly. Quetta and harry maguire. Maguire pulling is really quite the down in the box everyone kind of agrees that this is an egregious offense in the box a foul and should have been penalty and now here in match up to the main. Talking point is not necessarily the controversy surrounding that one instance not the call itself. Because i think most people agree. Okay maybe chelsea got away with one. But it's the remarks from the manchester united side after this game. That's really gotten everybody hot and bothered. We'll get to that in. Just one moment but these do part matchups between chelsea and manchester united i think if you look at the stats according to expected goals and i never know what that means. I don't know how you chart that chelsea had been slightly better when you look at the statistics between these two matchups but when you're a counter attacking side like manchester united. Sometimes math can lie to you a bit. Especially when chelsea get going into their bad habits which is possession sideways sideways. Pass no direct play and nothing to show for it but chelsea have been slightly better if you want to do it that way. Let's talk about the game itself. Where chelsea me of missed opportunities. Obviously he's rude coming close but i think the most interesting part about chelsea's approach in this game was the lineup we anticipated a bit of a rotational squad. And thomas did not disappoint in that respect. Yeah it was interesting to see ben show. We'll have another go at left wing back. I don't think he was an enormous impression. But i think the most important thing was kind of kenny. Do that defensive work while also contributing the attack. That's kind of what the two the two wing backs in this team. Very important roles to play. Marcus lonzo so familiar with the role that he's going to play it well but it chill will getting another go and that's another one where you're you're going to have to figure out if he's your long term future at that position or if you're married to the system so you have that one you had angola content moving into the midfield long. San mateo coach seemed as though right now. Georgina and kovic are the preferred central midfield partnership but angola contact particularly in this counter pressing role and this kind of defensive role. I haven't seen golden contact. Play this well in terms of winning the ball in central midfield in a long time and then the other one was hockey having go up front and unfortunately he just didn't make the impact. I do think that kind of he's more suited to a winger role is defined as being a wide as opposed to being close to the striker in this system. So maybe some evolutionary get better at it. But i have not seen hawking's each early early season where a watch that preseason match against brighton. Or even after he returned from the injury where all right. I get it. We haven't seen those obvious skills since he's played under tickle. Maybe i'm doing some confirmation by his here but it seemed as though team. Oh verner and kaia harvard's when frank lampard was a manager. There wasn't necessarily a plan for how to use them. It's just hey let's amass this talent and we'll figure it out aiming make the argument that frank lampard never quite figured it out with those players but chill and those fit. Frank lampard chelsea. There were specific plans for those players. Now you throw those plans out the window and z. Ish and chill will have to reshape themselves. It would make sense for eventual whose first choice left back of the national team. Who just a couple of weeks ago. Everybody would've told you that's the best left. Back in the premier league now is on team without a leftback. he's gotta learn left wing back and chill. I think of the two is the more likely for me to make an eventual transition. It's just learning something new right. If you said to me ahead of the season we know choo choo wells skill set is. He's very good going and can even end up in winger like position. We've seen him score. From winger like positions this season with leicester left wing back. I would have figured it would have been seamless but it's also understanding something new given entirely different set of instructions and instinctually. Just marcus alonzo was comfortable there so it was gonna take a moment. But i think he'll be fine event. I think that's a position that suits him incredibly. Well he has to be good as a left wing back. I got imagine benca well. The aspects of his game that are highly touted and regarded highly by the people. Maybe criticizing the right now can all assume that he has the attacking capabilities to fit in as left wingback. His long-term future is more settled than kimes. Because it looks a bit loss out there right now under thomas ucla ever. Since he went down with that injury. I was making the argument. That might be a nice under the radar player of the season candidate for not just chelsea but the primarily he was looking that pivotal to what chelsea were aspiring to be which at the time was a title contender. Now hard to find a role for him here he. He's good across as he put one on the money to matches ago didn't go his way. If i'm a big fan. And i am by the way should i be getting worried about kimes. The issues long-term future here at chelsea. Well i mean there are tons of attacking options. We talked about how there's going to be some players who are not going to have the same kind of success. But i i do think there needs to be kind of a clear understanding of what his role within that attack is going to be and if that suits him well because i do think he is more suited to play as a winger than as a right forward. Because it's just kind of a difference in where you lineup and what your ambitions are going to be. It does seem as though there is a little bit of a lack of connectivity between the two forwards and the central striker which you know is sometimes ru sometimes abraham and so trying to get those players in and around that striker not really what has been really good at with. I xe for a for a while and then you know. We saw the signs of it under land part. It was him working with a fullback. Most often reese james under part that worked really well so can he adjust and work better in tight spaces. I've been surprised given i. I kinda rate his touch kind of for me. The the best first touch in the primary is receiving. Touch is red mars right and looked similar in my view in terms of just the to manipulate the ball. That's the thing that i'm surprised that's gone. Is that ability to hang onto the ball in tight spaces to run with the ball and not give it away. I thought was incredible at that early early days and in recent times. Just haven't seen it. It's been a few more giveaways. He is in creating the chances like you used to. And i do wonder if it's being a little bit out of position i do want to get back to some criticisms but i'm listening to this right now is a chelsea fan. I'm like you'd think we'd lost this game. Let let's amplify some of the positives here which is christianson in ruediger. Ruediger was felt frisky. Hell of a run in this game flashes of that zuma run who zuma the moise christianson the more pleased. I am with christianson. The less i actually see a role for kurds. Zuma under this formation right now under thomas ruediger and christianson have been revelations. This year christianson in particular. Let's not forget. This is an academy product in entrees christianson. He always had this high ceiling but there were flaws in his game under maurizio. Sorry you realized that he needed to improve his distribution. The player did now. You trust him with the ball at his feet. Pretty much more than any of those central defenders. His service has really improved that much but the defensive work he is doing chris. I not yoga. Silva there's rumors about chelsea having mutual interest or return tiago silva many people's choice for player of the season for chelsea. I know christianson is going to once again backup iago silva but it's good to know that the future of the position doesn't have to be someone touching here forty. It could be andreas christianson. He is really carving out a role for himself now just this call but as a footballer in general and it's always been kind of it up and down during his time at chelsea and he was kind of in that pre. Let's call it. The pre lampard stage where young players greeley had to impress in order to get a chance. Never mind an opportunity to have extended run the team so yeah under sorry. He did have a time where he was featured more than he had been under previous managers in a under antonio conte as well and as you say the the change in his quality of distribution and is trust not only in terms of as a fan. You trust him but also to be given that role of center of back three and you have to pick passes and sometimes they're dangerous and sometimes are hard sometimes. They're under pressure the fact that he has handled this role so effortlessly. I genuinely thought when i go silva went out. Who's going to play that role christianson. Is he going to be able to handle that. He hasn't played in a very long time on a regular basis. So the fact that it has been so seemless that it's still only two goals conceded undertook. Oh it's another clean sheet. It's also another game you mention x g. They're expected goals point four like manchester united. Did not get that many good opportunities. And that's partially the whole setup. But it's also because those defenders as billick weta curtian ruediger. Two of what you would not have a sumo to be. Actually all three of which you would not have a central chelsea defense at any point. This season have been sensational. And they've done their job incredibly well and they've started a distribution is sophisticated that has real legitimate tactical instructions. You have to work out and christians in the fact that it's come along this quickly. I'm stunned really happy for him too because there were a lot of football fans and chelsea fans may have written them off after the howler That led to a massive equalizing goal for barcelona in the champions league at a probably his worst moment as a professional that mistake that led to that goal completely changes the dynamic of the second matchup and barcelona go on to advance against the chelsea team that was flatly not as good as barcelona but they could have done. It had that mistake not happen. And he has to carry that with him and he learned from it he improved from it. You haven't seen a mistake like that. Remember christianson and zuma these were players. That were good for mistake. A game and basically whether you want loss was could you survive. The mistake zuma did well last year and eliminating those mistakes and we're seeing the same exact thing right now with christianson. Where if he makes a mistake. I would be genuinely surprised. And how far. He's come as a footballer. Reese james now we go back to. Maybe some negatives reese james. We've talked about it here. We've talked to the young men. Were were presidents fan club unbelievable ability to cross a ball. The ball just looks beautiful coming off of his feet. We were watching this game together. Chris and i think you and i both share the notion like what does it mean. Go for goal more remember. He scored against brighton. And hove albion early. In the start of the season we always knew. This player had that in his locker. And if you're a goalkeeper get on one to face the shot coming off of that boot. It's an absolute rocket. Still whipping it in hopefully trying to make connection with somebody. Just narrowly misses alleviate. Giroud you can say wow. How great would it be if someone were in the right position. At a certain point you have to analyze reese james's contribution to this it can all be. We're not having players at the right position for james where several matches into the season right now. I know it's a new manager. What is the disconnect here but the crosses and the lack of goals. Well the way that i see is i see reese james. Hitting objectively good crosses ideal crosses. That should meet a response. But they're more hit in theory than the are in. While someone's making that run. And i i picked it out and i'm going to pick it with this ball right. It's just. I'm gonna hit these incredibly good crosses that look amazing in the fans like. Wow these are like he's one of the best crossers in the world and i think he is but it's more that there isn't that intention analogy there. There isn't that like. I'm trying to hit team overnight with this ball and so when team verners kind of in the box. He's not thinking. Or i need to dart towards the back post. I get in there so he he had a chance. It wasn't that far away. But i just don't think that he's thinking in terms of i'm going to meet this ball on the back post and be making that run and that for me is the disconnect so i think if there is something for me to improve on it would just be overall rehearsal right and i'm sure thomas. He's got a lot of things to sort out so with not that much time or time on the training ground so i do think that at some point. This'll be something that gets address. All right when reached. James has the ball these movements that we're going to run to kind of take advantage. There's going to be someone making a darting. Run towards a near posted gains. An cases hit low and fishing. And someone's gonna crash the back post in case it loops over all the defenders and someone can profit on the back end like i. I do kinda wonder if coordination and turning it into a tactic. Alright james's kind of his own tactic when he's got that ball because he's so good at crossing. Yeah when you watch it on tv. You're screaming to the heavens. If only someone could be there. Wow what a beautiful cross. But i don't think it's as simple as it is in the game of football for everything i think there's a bit of a shared responsibility here obviously could be bit. More efficient with this crosses locale efficient at king's es was with his cross. We talked about that about that right side when things were really cooking with frank lampard and how key could teach reshapes a few things and maybe rise to the occasion. See the competition. If reese james continues to be this volume shooter then we're going to need to have more opportunities more people diving into the box and it gets a little bit more exposed to the counter attack and we've already seen what priority it is to limit the team's chances on the counter-attack and we should say that. The last chance of manchester united having the game comes from a free kick ball bounces out two passes later the rare time that chelsea had been hit on the break really mattress united three or four players running into the penalty area. And if not for a bad ball. Then maybe you're conceding a really good chance at the end of the game. So yeah i mean it can't leave you in vulnerable vulnerable positions if you don't execute across her a set piece that correctly once again needing a bit more special quality in that final third mason. Mount once again doesn't make things impresses with his motor and whatnot but some bad decisions in the box some opportunities that you kinda wonder what things might have been if kai habits had the ball at his feet. They're silicon habits here. He's working himself back from health. Yet again. Really unlucky the season politic. Once again on the bench we talked about this a little bit on the last episode team over not starting in this game chelsea struggle to score goals. And there's a lot of creation on that bench for thomas cole. Maybe we should breathe a little bit and give these players time to be fully online fully fit to give this go because what you don't want is a situation like mckinsey stop and start. You're seeing how that's put him behind the eight ball. A little bit was hoping for a little bit more than pulisic sub i. I'm just genuinely confused. What position the three attacking players. Because i can't even their amorphous. You can't really put a position on them. Because i saw a christian pulisic play as a right winger for most of the time he was on the pitch today. So what can you tell me tacticly about how we're using because it seems as though we're bit weighted towards that left side. The attack is building up from the left because those are more natural positions for these players but they have full-on liberty to veer wherever it is they want on the pitch. Is that a good plan. I agree that it's kind of an amorphous front three right like you don't know where anyone is going to be at any given time. I do think that. Perhaps that freedom kind of leads to a lack of connectivity. Like i do think like in the middle of the penalty area on that eighteen yard line. There just isn't enough going through there. And i thought jerus- was gonna come in and kind of be someone who can be a fokker and help combined but when you see shortage of they get into good chance creating moments right. Someone's got the ball running one if you wanted a defender there in a decent place. But i can't remember that many all right. you have to score this moments undertook. I hockey museum had one. Which i think is very clearly the. I'm looking at the x. Chair here that's clearly. The one that everyone was a pullback came to it was well saved by the. Hey i kind of leaning to one side and say hey yeah so you sticks the right hand out. It makes it safe. But i don't ever that many clear goalscoring opportunity all man. How did we not score that. Like and i don't know if it's just a shortage of attacking players like i would like to see undertook them play with four attacking players as a back. Four four two three one or four three three and one of the fields gets involved like one more number that's creativity that's movement. That's thinking about goals right now. It's just not the priority in this shape. And i think close trying to work it so that the wing backs are getting into those kinds of positions but i want to see another attacker. Who's thinking like that and getting to those kinds of positions. When's rude got pull off and you had pull a sick and mount and team. Oh verner out there. And i asked you might well. Who's the target man who who's the most advanced attacker right now. The answer was mason. Mount base him out good player not the most advanced player. I want on the pitch when you talk about some of the names when you have a root out there or in this instance where you had pulisic or team over those are more clinical finishers then mason mount. So if we're gonna go with that this seems like a nice spot for kayakers to to get in there. I wanna see that desperately. I need to see that soon for my own. Saying i'm just i've got to be finishing and also like it's hard when you don't have a reprieve in terms of the difficulty of the fixtures right like you're playing liverpool next than its everton after that then leads after that then it's atletico madrid in the champions league and all the while you're chasing to get into the top four or you don't have any conference as well. We can try coyotes habits here so it's going to be as a fifteen minutes of appearance in. I don't know if that's the best spot to get the most out of coverage like you want to let him get a chance to have some run. So i don't know kind of what the best way other than just picking your informed players hoping that they can figure this out fair enough look on the scope of things. I wanted four points from these matchups against liverpool and manchester united. You're still on pace for that right now. Liverpool nice win granted. It was over the blades. So i don't know if we can take too much out of that but you're still on track. I think four from six really when you look at against manchester united the teams getting two points in your manchester united matchups ups. A bit disappointing. Especially if you're someone like me that actually thinks we can catch manchester united. Maybe a missed opportunity but be liverpool. And we're all good right baby so put manchester united behind us and concentrate on liverpool. That's a big upcoming match but that'll be later in the show we have gorn The dragon former nba all star. Luca danni pitches coming for his stuff but to this point the greatest fenian basketball player of all time huge soccer fan him and jimmy butler go back and forth about their soccer takes all season long.

I also want to spend part of this interview trying to convince you to be a chelsea supporter soccer fans so that you know something that Is a key that i used to play soccer like you guys coming from europe so i love soccer. I understand that and your slovenian. And there's there's very famous slovenian soccer players out there chelsea just beat one in the champions block. So you're highly coveted free agent when it comes to the premier league support but let's actually talk about the beautiful game and how you're seeing it grow within. Nba locker rooms. We've obviously spoken to kendrick. Nunn about chelsea football club and a lot of people are getting into it via fee. Is this something that you've seen in your own locker room just more and more players liking soccer. yeah i did I have to say i'm here. Let me hear seat series. Miami and i can tell you that the last i will tell two years when jimmy join us you know. Jimmy loves soccer. And then you see you don imus khazni worrying the soccer jerseys and bam bam the bioch- going into you know we talk a little bit so those guys you know they're really trying to you know. Get some facts about soccer and they start watching games and you know it's fun because you can talk to them you know especially the love champions league so me tallish funds to talk about the results and the players and so on. Where did football soccer fit into your kind of sporting diet when you were a kid. When did basketball into the picture like we. Were you first a soccer player and then you grew into basketball. How did that work for you. I start i start playing soccer. I i play soccer until i was eleven years old. You know i had a leg injury in one of those damn said Ran into the cleats and dope in my leg and from there on Sweet sports and And became the basketball player but Still soccer is my You can call it. I love. I still watch it. You know most of the time. When i have free time soccer on my tv and try to follow. You've actually got a good deal carved out for yourself. Because you're not tethered to a single team at least you haven't publicly alluded to the fact that you support behind one team and that way you don't get to where the very painful loss on your jimmy is a big guy because of neymar and so they made to chains league final. I think you guys were following along in the bubble where you not. Yeah last year stuff. Last year in the bubble was the final up uber. Survive unique and You know. Jimmy's actually busy fan. And he was a tough loss but you know at least they make it to the final so hopefully this year you know. They have a good team. That just been barred sasso. We'll see now that your independent not tethered to buy another club team now. Are you routing for your friends to be happy when they're watching or you're getting at a maybe a little kick it of jimmy butler team losing in the final hours rooting for busy from honest. But i do like to You know joke around with jimmy. Especially when he's playing. Your last game was saying about second the beach you guys bad and then it happened opposite so so doubt just in general you know having fun you know last game that i watch i watch versus chelsea and you guys you know. Judo made that. The scissor kick was impressive. Man anna fortunately against my guy. John block you know i would say he's one of the best ball is out there but now the king was was just perfect so it is it the same thing for you is for us. We're like every american support chelsea these little bit because christian pulisic is in the team. Are you kind of like supportive of the big slovenians in europe. Most notable yano black of athleti. Yeah yeah definitely. You know yano blog dan. You'll see it in. I'm and signed condado goalkeeper for milan. So those three guys are the main guys but I everything mckean's mackenzie you. He's she's his great. And i think so. It's his first year as as interest from shoka now blanche's swings from anxiously displaying well and Okay you as not playing so well in syria right now but you know they're still alive. You have time to bounce back. So we'll see i'm so impressed by by the depths of your football knowledge so like you say it fills up your free time but mike saluted to this. You have like it's kind of no allegiance just like watching the sport. Who's your favorite team. Are you amenable to picking kind of a club outside of your country. As a kid. I was a fan of real madrid. This is but becky say that splaying miata reach her role. Harare those guys figo. And then i just you know. Stay with it. And i'm still a fan over down with you. Know it's been a painful to watch crew sound renaldo. Laugh us but it is what it and then finally you know playing a little bit better last. Few few games sent you know. Hopefully we can win Laliga coys out. So we'll how the hard hitting followup journalism from chris hamilton broken the news. We finally got down to the club. Gordon dragoj supports. He's been such a great politician about it not allowing anyone inside but that's awesome real madrid one of the biggest clubs in the world. You can have a spain team. You can have an italian team. Maybe it's you over in syria in england. Hopefully it's chelsea. I'm going to try to do like my last campaign. Pitchy mentioned olivier giroud. He's very generous. When it comes to giving away as you can see that yeah. I looked at but they'll call it. He should come back to hang on a second. We're supposed to be sister clubs. We gave you and you give us koba business here baby. Okay all right obviously. Nba is one of the biggest world games going on right now the global expansion. It's actually great to see mutually soccer here in the united states and the nba growing abroad. We know that soccer is a big deal in slovenian. Basketball is booming. We also happen to know that you're on at times occasionally the number one soccer podcast slovenia. Which made you a dream. Yes for us here on chelsea mic'ed up in your country basketball just growing with your contributions and luka don-shik but who is in the history of slovenian sports you walk into a bar and yano block walks into a bar. How does that go. I know you guys were european champions and that transcends pretty much everything for that country but yano blocking goran. Dragic have of celebrity faceoff who's got the more supporters in slovenia true. I don't know probab- if depends You know the people if they're watching more soccer basketball The last few years you know basketball was number one sport in our country but i do have to admit that You know soccer is global sports. Of course more people is watching so definitely probably on all black you know. He's playing tremendously. He's one of the best goalkeepers out there. So you know if i if i see on all black approach given high five and keep up the good job. I'm a huge fan. So within your own locker room. Not just on her but people actually go out and play. I know josh. Richardson still has been seeing locally. I don't like arsenal law. Bang bang you know. And yeah as miami kind of jury took over that club and i i don't know l. way to endear yourself to the number one pot soccer podcast in slovenia right now chelsea mike up but obviously those guys famously played out there now. I was listening to local sports. Radio and precious actually thinks he's the best soccer player in that locker. My guess is jimmy butler. If he tried his hand in a competitive soccer match he'd have a say on garage and results precious not the best soccer player in that locker room. You guys let me put it this way. Those guys are talking like all the time but you never see him kicking the ball around you know so. At least at least i have the ball. I kick a little bit that you know but those guys i think okay she jimmy little bit you know but i. I never seen a tour precious through to kick the ball. So i'm i'm just gonna stay with it and probably the worst of us. Three hanky is a rookie. Yankee is a rookie. So he's not even in that conversation. Does i think i've seen luca. Look at each do like tricks with the ball with his feet as well. What's kind of the nba community among soccer fans. I imagine with the european continue. There's a fair. Few of us are are super into soccer but who beyond that kind of do not big soccer fans most of european players soccer fans you know. I know i'm close friend. We'd look in of course she's rooting for madrid. Here's to play there for that team. Dan nikola which is a big supporter of eventers and You're all those guys. Those can complain you every summer. About how sometimes. We get without france and play soccer around than i seem to pre embiid this good Some videos and a boy on bogdonovich. So those guys You know most of those guys who are from europe day they follow soccer and the little bit all right core and it sounded like there. Chris wittingham maybe goran was humbled to admit it. But it sounds like gordon was kinda low key making the case that gorens soccer player within that heat locker room and i never count out gordon. Especially when he's angry. I do i right now. How the implant. He's no the way for me. You know talk talk. He talk smack to me. But i don't care. I tell him that out from europe mandy. You're staying with basketball. Stick with soccer match. All right here comes here. Here's my one pitched to you to try to get you to the blue side in london because you are already tailor. Made you shown a dislike for arsenal. You're pretty much halfway there okay. So you don't have an english team you've done a fair amount of business with ria with real madrid and chelsea right sister clubs even the president over there said we're clubs. You can have a second club out there. Look your two nations. Your former star european champion so was chelsea by the way there's a shared pedigree here and play well angry discounted by many and the what happens. You're in the eastern conference final ball and you're in the nba finals. You suffered the injury and it goes differently. If you're healthy. Everybody knows this. We need a shot from the mountaintop. Sell gordon please. If you're willing to just consider a premier league team let's go to the blue side of london okay to jersey. Is it that easy you not. I'm gonna do it for you guys. And only because a one play used to play for chelsea ivanovich. Oh love bratislav. He's she's He's one of those is that was come near vicky was probably a lot of years. Yes you're talking about a two time. Champion realty branislav ivanovic. She's actually still playing. You know this is playing for west brom. Now he made his back. He made his way back into the premier league. They were chelsea the other day. I'm like this is while mike. Don't tell them this because west brom fan. You're right chelsea. So we gotta get you a branislav ivanovic jersey in chelsea blue closest deal and you know Drug back. he was a great thought. Mckay was awesome. That you know Lawn parts pay their cheka. I mean Cheeky is always making a solid teams. You guys you guys have a good coach right now. So yeah why not. you know. I'm gonna jump on your bandwagon and support of chelsea. But just you primarily some pro. Yes just when he's gonna be when he's going to be a second language against the guy block so all right so it wolf officially start this chelsea support after the second leg of ed. I like that because you're already kind of alluding to the fact that chelsea you'd bands but you gotta be nice to yano block just if athleti score. You don't celebrate. That's that's just a classic thing you don't celebrate against. Obviously you're now adopted primarily club. I'm so happy we did this. Oh man josh richardson's gonna hate it. I love it imagine. When is the last march. No one love chelsea fan already talk donham. Twenty years ago. I did there. Were babies that have babies now. The last time that happened don't need only play are like from our sinatra's tyrian read yes obviously respect area. I mean fan of spurs exactly. She's rude might break area on results. I'm goalscoring right. I'm just saying okay. But it's okay. You're chelsea guy now mission accomplished. It's the all star episode of chelsea miked up and we got a bona fide. All-star here man. We're feeling quite like starting five in terms of basketball. We got john got. Larry got josh. We got kendrick. And now gordon drag. It's running point for us. This is a hell of a team. That's a good team. Yeah and john prodi calling play by play forest. Look at that yes all right. This is amazing. Goran dragic thank you so much for joining us here on chelsea mike depth. Wow this slovenian. Blues are going to be blowing up our timeline. We recruited or drug. It's to slightly lean. Okay if i got this right slightly lean in the primarily only to chelsea but when it comes to games against athletico madrid and real madrid. We're not rooting for chelsea. But it's okay. We all exact has only against those two teams right on my end. Don't think i forgot. I gotta get you a branislav. Ivanovic chelsea jersey. Alright i do this. i've closed. i've closed the deal. All right you know. I i i do have to meet. I collect soccer jersey so You know michael actually spree the pretty awesome so we know. What are you most proud of. I got the giroud here. I got thirty. I'm the most proud of movies that i got chris. Cristiano renaldo luigi. Then i got Patty sheets from inter nice. You know but that's it basically. I still need to expand a little bit. But you know it's a good start. It's a good start. Yeah we'll get you that advantage. One will in chelsea bloom coach and well. He's a big fan of kobe. Church do again. We'll get you both you like to jersey's coming your way. Goran dragic gasoline. Little one of my favorite players. Honestly gordon your mentality. obviously i'm a heap. Fan your mentality. The killer instinct on the court. The toughness i mean i only hope you guys make it back to the nba finals because it would have been a different story. I'm convinced if you were fully healthy in that game. And i know in that locker room. You guys probably believed that too. That's the heat culture way so hopefully title in the heat colors that you so much deserve. Thank you for joining us and thank you for joining blue nation over here at chelsea. We appreciate it. Thank you guys. good luck. Introducing puffing played the most important for training after the fed up with and used by the tel. Cfc cut it built with innovative play. Track intensity returned mazda clauses from some booze biggest thoughts offering walter lost causing the lights football coach. So you want to start training for free download on the app store. Now all chris wittingham you know how much this fixture means to me. It's liverpool time. This is obviously a massive matchup. It didn't seem like a fair fight over the last few years. Now you've got liverpool when they're down. I know they finally broke the streak and they got three points and if they win this game massive and maybe a lot of that keep that was surrounding them for the last few weeks. Dissipates say massive match for yergin klopp and liverpool the rating primarily chance equally massive four. Thomas two-goal thomas tacoma as you mentioned in the first segment only been touched by two goals under thomas to here one of them in tonio ruediger so chelsea play liverpool the rotation in the squad. We saw it some. Do we anticipate edit into this match. Even more rotation i think team over verner has this game. Even though he played very well against liverpool last year during project restart again. I'm struggling to find spots. Where christian pulisic's hearts. Yeah for this team. It seems as though he is locked in a position battle with team over and while we knew that was a chance given the versatility of team verner and given the goalscoring record of players like olivia newton. John abraham you knew someone was going to find himself on the but it didn't necessarily feel like a direct competition now. It seems as though if timo verner doesn't sort maybe that's a spot christian pulisic even though it wasn't against manchester united which i think a lot of american soccer fans started to get really frustrated there. Because if you're not having team oh this is. The most consistent run of playing time christian has had in the blue shirt and he will be the first to tell you the goal simply haven't been there yet. this is a bit of. We can classify this as a slump. Can we not. Yeah yeah. I think we can. I think it's probably you know. In terms of that output. It would be similar to the beginning of his chelsea chen tenure when he just wasn't able to get into those kinds of positions but i do think when he came on against manchester united he had an impact in terms of you know buzzing around and and creating some of that you know those pricing situations where i think. He's going to have to work. Hard chris right. He works hard and that's really the narrative about him but he jumps off the screen that he's working hard. He does do a lot of work defensively. So if the goals aren't there. I think you showing the time asuka contrast them on the defensive end caney not well i i think it's can you do it on the level of mason mount and then can you build on mason mounts attacking bill from there because it's just mason. Mount is going to be picked off the basis of what he brings to the forward press picked because he's chelsea's player of the season at this point. Yes but also like thomas. Google did not have to pick mason. Mount as much as frank lampard did right like he's not wedded to them in the same way you know just as you know he's. Thomas has preferred other players but mason. Mount has been the one through line through it all. And i don't think it's like well you know mason. Mount is a leader. It's not quite you know. Tiago silva leader rights. He's been doing this as the standard bearer of chelsea for ten years. It's you know. He's a strong character but the fact that to had so much prefers the skill set. I think is an indication of all right mason. Mount is going to have a long career and as you know. Provides a vital skill set to coaches. The question is can pulisic thing. So that mason malcolm either get arrest or that politic can displace him. It's just a little confusing me. Because if you're not starting team on your starting to route and route is looking to combine with players the best combination teammate for him christian pulisic in terms of the valuable options. That's not to say you can't figure it out with some of the other players out there but we've had ruined and ask them specifically about the connection that they had christian pulisic would agree. They have a special chemistry. If team verner is out there at a live as route. Is i kind of want to see the out there. Just because they've shown me you're not in top four without their special ability to combine. So i'm a little bummed. He didn't get the start there. We know that if thomas douglas five subs christian pulisic is a part of that plan. Three subs. I'm not exactly sure if we can count on chelsea's number ten out there with the same sort of regularity that he had under frank lampard which is just funny given the narrative that there was around frank lampard and christian pulisic early on but towards the latter part of frank lampard. Send you here at chelsea. You knew each rusted. His number ten christine gotta earn that back. And i think it's unfair to just classify it as trust so. I'll walk that back a little bit thomas. Two-goal says games take a certain shape. I would've loved to have used christian. I actually thought of using christian in the spot but things changed the game. Sorta dictated how i needed to use. My subs had me yearning for five. Subs yeah because i love the five sub strategy the thomas display it against athletico madrid. I thought christian did well there. What we expect from a lineup. I think team. Oh yeah and olivier. I think we saw with that sort to alleviate root against manchester united and obviously tame. He's dealing with a bit of an ankle situation as well. Maybe even more than that. I know that saw gossip right now. But i think we're finally at the point where tom knows. This guy can get me the goal. Even in that moment against manchester united he will get in the vicinity of a moment and he'll be special sometimes. It'll be a slow overhead kick and sometimes it'll just go wide but a libya route. I think is going to find some regular playing time again. I agree and i think you go back to if it was a carbon copy of the atletico madrid lineup. I would not be surprised at all. You go back to georgina and kovic in the middle. You go back to marcus alonzo and with some impressive. Though i know and that i mean obviously just one of the best midfield players in the world. So he's going to urge his place in the team he does that. And you're like oh man. This guy is one of these most unprecedented players like he just when he when he has it going. It's such a joy to why. I know because it's so often where it's like. Oh manchester united. You know pass pass. Pass pass kante pass. Pass pass past contact and it's so crazy. How often just pops out of nowhere six seven times as win the ball content is doing things. And he's kinda backed for me to his best in that respect in this role. He's been you know kind of thrust into this. Rondo both syrian lampert in which he was kind of asked to be a bit more forward minded thinking about. You know what is next pass and fend for pressing whereas now. He's being asked to do what he does. For france and we did for leicester and we did under antonio conte as well. So in claude makelele getting involved saying that he adds offer more in the right so i and that's where i kinda wonder where to head is at because i do think he values again winning the ball back after. You've lost it. That's such an important aspect of his tactics so i do wonder what he's thinking. In terms of how to use the three central midfielders that are kind of most obvious jumping off the screen right now and contact just offer that little bit more of passing and creativity if not to open up a chance to kind of be the beginning of a chance and jorgihno is better at that than conti is and so i do kind of wonder of those skill sets. Which does he prefer more when we look at the liverpool side. Obviously this team has had chelsea's number as of late especially in the primarily. I think riding a four-match winning streak against chelsea plant the games were closer. Then the the the scores would even indicate chelsea always played them tough obviously going to a cup final with them and taking them to penalties. I think it's time it's damn time. We stopped the streak from liverpool. We've explored what's going on with liverpool. Have they been figured out. What is the difference between this liverpool and ones from years prior and you point ages your points a players. Maybe not being as good as they. Once were me it jumps out with saudi-omani solid grabbed all the headlines player that i feared the most with reason through my blue prison because saudi money was at chelsea killer. I think sixteen goals against chelsea in all competitions saudi-omani to me is the biggest difference between this year's liverpool and last year as liverpool. He's just not the same player. He's not striking that fear. He's not getting the goals or the assists the way that it used to. I'm not saying he's finished as a player. I'm just saying the saudi-omani that i feared consistently week in week out was impacting games. Whatever the reason is though this is not the same player strike in that same amount of fear in opponents. Twenty eight years old. Maybe having a little too soon for him. But not the first case of that so saudi-omani caney tap back into that form that was just an absolute chelsea killer because i think as he goes liverpool go. Yeah well you look at his underlying numbers from the season and he's actually well underperforming his expected goal. So really what's happened is is gonna poor finisher the fact that saudi-omani at this point only seven goals nearly two thirds of the way through the season. That's not enough in that front threes. You know you can bank on fifty five sixty season from for me. No sala and mani and the fact that again. There's just not scoring money as you're right. He's absolutely a huge part of that culpability. But for me no is well used to screen. Obviously he's always been like the mason mount of liverpool right where he does all of that extra work. And he's you know connects to build up and okay. You're not going to get you know Robin van persie level of goalscoring. But you're going to get you know fifteen to twenty and that's fallen off for him as well and then sala. He's had a really good season in terms of his normal pre. You know productivity but just as it's not that same dynamism with liverpool attack. So i do think that money is definitely one who needs to improve but again. It's all about that balance. And i know we've talked about the centerback thing to death. But against sheffield united they started adriana and goal with net phillips and ozar ozark. The the the the back they send from shaikha that same combination. If you're chelsea get that team she you have to look at. And i know chelsea if not feasted under thomas to as yet from an attacking point of view and scoring multiple goals. But if it's gonna happen it's gonna be in a little bit more of an open match because liverpool are going to attack at home and are you gonna have the chance to hit them on the break you will. So can you actually go and do it. It's funny in modern football. When you have such opponent attacking side the way that liverpool word just last year defense is where most people go but the defense very clearly was he engine to that potent liverpool attack. When they're not the same sort of defensive team you see. It goes hand in hand in hand. It's prediction time. Pour one out for the exact. Oh streak from chris wittingham. I'm trying to double my chances at beating you at these. By if you hear the podcast and you you hashtag chelsea chatter on social media. Upon new information i may change my prediction to hedge my bets. You're not afforded the same opportunity though. Go ahead go ahead. you can. Chelsea chatter is in my proprietary content. You go for it You can do your own chelsea chatter if you wanna keep those exact does going but the exact oh streak has come to an end. My original prediction on chelsea mike. That was actually right. So by those rules I'm headlining this we. Yeah i'm headline you pick no neil in the podcast which we could draw. I picked the okay. Yeah when he when he doing well. I picked a one one draw. All right so i will. I'll go first. I had said that this was going to be. He were teasing me. They're a little bit Jared china hold up the fact. That maybe i can't at the exact one. Stay trying to inspire me. Yeah i want all of our predictive powers to improve. I was also mata- myself because in the preamble to my prediction. I said i should just pick nil-nil but i'm gonna i'm gonna pick a goal and and then of course no happen so for this game. I think it'll be a bit more open. I think this will be the highest scoring game between the two teams that we've seen with chelsea undertook. And i'm gonna go for a two two draw in this one. I'm going to stick to the parisian. I made on last week's pod. I think this'll be a high scoring affair and multiple golden both teams. Believe not exactly sure. But i believed i pick a. I picked a two one victory for for chelsea. I'm that right now. i think. That's a trademark chelsea chatter prediction. Tom and go to one chelsea. Not exactly sure who scored the goal so unsure of who scores the goal is. Let's just go jerus- rude for me. This'll be an opportunity for team. Oh verner to continue that hot streak. It was it was weird. He started really cooking and then rotationally pulling back a little bit and part of me wanted him to just keep going. You gotta hot hand. Keep feeding them because he could really erupt right now. I think so maybe team oh and giroud can work out some of that. Two man game. I'd love to see it. I'm not sure if that type of player just yet. So it's interesting to see exactly how those fit together but we saw against athletico madrid can still get results a man. This would be a massive one. This would be a hugely damaging loss for liverpool in the top. Four chase chelsea can survive dropping point here and won't be the end of the world but you have a real opportunity to send a message to liverpool that they are in absolute dogfight four top four right now. Oh i would love that. I know so many liverpool fans and this would be. This has delicious. Gimme that to one baby. Come on come on now. We unless chelsea beat liverpool on thursday and we emergency pot afterwards we also will speak before chelsea play everton in their next match on monday to the and now it's it's not a it's not a goodison park it's at. I know you'll love goodison park but monday. One o'clock kick-off for that one is well. What do you think for them. I'm thinking chelsea win that one. Okay because it sounded goodison park. I'm gonna go with two nil in that one. I think chelsea are about to start sacking some winds here in the premier league for their sake they need to so. This is really is a really tough stretch. We we said we pointed to the stretch and the calendar. This is what's going to define the thomas to galera. This stretch games is going to actually define as to whether or not we can call this an era or not or if. This was just an intern. Job i think thomas to goal is going to be here next year. And if he's going to be here next year he needs to get results like the ones that were hoping for against liverpool and certainly hoping more for against everton so i think he wins both of those games. That'd be massive for chelsea's champion's league campaigns for next year and now all of a sudden you have a team in europe and we can start talking about rumors and become alon mike up which we were even before there are links boehner corner long before the rumors who it is murdered. The whole of my pocket. I'm trying to be responsible. Your call for that everton match yet. So everton i know. I know that they can pull off impressive results. I don't i don't trust them. And their reliability matching a matching. It'd be liverpool. They finally win the darby. But i think that chelsea are going to win this one. I'm actually. I'm going to to copy you because i i. This is what's going to happen chelsea to ever to nil. Look at this. We finally combined a predictive powers. I feel like we pick a different predictions for the sake of the content. We shouldn't pick the same thing. But i happen to agree with you. Agree and then what happens. If we nail an exacto on a to pursue your the way it depends on the incumbency right who had the better prediction the previous. Let's just talk at the exact same time all right. So let's hope for six points against liverpool and everton. Let's just own anfield come on egmont chelsea need this one bad all right until we speak again thanks to grow and drag it again in the miami heat for making that happen until we speak again up the shells.

My friend is where it can start today I'm Robbie Mustoe. He's Robbie on his topics coming up on today's episode. Monday nights hit a Marcus Rashford getting better of PSG again. Get Clean Sheet and all three points the battle men sixty three, one victory over Porto. Chelsea scoreless draw against the and a preview of something big much nicer versus Chelsom. That's what we thought coming up on today's episode. All I've ever really wanted to do is find out what's up. And give it to people straight the facts of the day clearly, and concisely in context and perspective and tell people what's happening the news with. Shepard. Smith subscribe to the podcast today. Bill Chinese again, group stages. Of Group stages we kinda split. In terms of the game is that we really studying closely I certainly look to the highlights and the most of the action of the United Game but you closely pissed you one man united to yet and give me your your thoughts on what you saw. it was a very good day for Manchester United, very good results although the ferry day for all GonNa Solve Shaw into intensive the team that he picked for the person out on the team Shea with the discipline I'm focus if the team. A real collective and in vigils you've changed the game when it when it was important. So it's no way and it's awesome. We've shut it but welcome social I still tactically and technically his team. To go really good win against the team team that got to the Champions League final season goal kind of changes in the front I'd. Yeah. You Look at the Lineup Robin Poke on the bench again so Rested him against Newcastle that was basically San? Doing it right now. Don't you drink Well. Across the globe in that maybe was this again full you was the balances is it violence in team rods reviewing that as ends thread who will excellent to would on closed down many difficult for PSG to get any momentum. Now, maybe trust may be near sees that you what you WANNA play. Defensive. They didn't want him for the game rupp didn't didn't want him for Newcastle. Game didn't for this game. What, what what what what point you're trying to make that? He He China? Might One might not wanting to still game infanticide when he came on to begin floats on the game. It into the second half for change a full moving when a little bit more laughable in he was one of the season the feels. Able to get full it was able to make things happen. So maybe eight monitoring pool maybe at same of is soon games when you talk about to look. Up and he's playing for the view not for not mess. So he caught he can't be trusted to playing games where defensively they might be strange where I midfield. He wants a couple of workers and unless less of a talented plaid contrast defensively. You you would expect I mean, that's still a bit shocking if you're if you. Consider is salary import. What you do if you owe a Jew playing thinking singers custody deserve the same will not play. As big as he is important is is skillful as. Gained changes are. Those known I might argue maybe wrongly the I still try and find a way in the team for him. I still in talking way robb way you don't have to rely on him I. Guess You've got booted Fernandez. Him So. Fit. But we should let you say maybe we should talk about the players who played and. Somebody, in midfield and Fred, they went with a throwback. Didn't he was wing box something different should which? If It looks good going forward. Go good left foot said pastries and things do plush. Pillow. Now on twitter feed yesterday who probably to some people maybe didn't see the game we'll just see highlights I don't want a socket. Twins Eighty. Outstanding Absolutely outstanding offense vehicle challenge one moment than thank shrimp deem off in mid events strengthen spayed in all the time we go to great blocked I don't want the soccer is an talk about some of these. Deficiencies when he goes to a digital trend Alexander on delivery the. One on one defending. Their envelope Fatemi the slide, and he gets in blocks, but he's going real China good timing when the offending coaxes tell out affected fool with. His patient recovers outstanding it, and he had a great one on one with embarking on top. I'll tell you what A. Bit So I saw the game and maybe I saw interview afterwards with the manager and. I think he's been as for the managers look. He's been the to the last couple of weeks. He's been trying really well, you know when you don't see how Maguire there we know the. Department from McGuire is been shaky with Lindelof all Eric. BIOS looked pretty awful. Actually is Alex twins aby is easy. I guess the answer to play alongside Maguire going forward Robina in a back four is that what we might see now from other gonNA sell show it's possible could be back three with with McGuire in Lindelof made why he brings you that I think Maguire needs is lettuce is rule athleticism that can be colorful flipped Harry Maguire you can get wrong on the shield of Maguire is getting duke likened go taxable and he's Big enough is a good one on one defined if you're talking down. Ryan side among e e can handle people wouldn't want it. If he gets go with senate fluid outs, the best defendant in will will have to do at time. So I, suppose we'll have to find out robbie young is relatively inexperienced but I liked the materials go to see I think he's coach able I think he might be having the line as you might be trusted to trying to get him on his Williams say someone else we can. We can do the federal this sense. Of Yeah, and he brings a pace to that area. Doesn't it? Doesn't McGraw's good on a ball the twins ab gives the guess would give some speed their insurance just going forward and it's nice in it together look up the lights are Bruno Marshall Russia's against yet the PSG fullerton comparisons. Talked about just how good is Neymar? Is the old that? Display and his goal. This was one of those days where Russia looks like a million dollars to me just looks so threatening of fast and. At least if and took his go really well for posted to the back of the net and what did what did you think Roger just in Tinge of that? Shit that you. Look at a roach to note in said on the day in the most saying that players would move whatever will standing on the day. Bruno Rashford emotional Seattle when more emphatic with more dangerous than de Maria and buffet name. Monday. And I don't think be to argue at ten. What else we show in the PS Jay from. Tom's Demon Ridge option as a what we saw with something that we show early psg last season before things. So. The front sail must knockoff women by the bowl not interested at all about team Shen nutty Jesse about following people body was brought to old. PSG and it made me think about do you know what old PSG? Say doesn't find see both yeah. What we'll play when we got the ball and doesn't do it is only half the planet. Is only he plays when he's gay money's motivate when he's the team still I'm they can break the they just don't feel like he can switch your on off as much as he thinks he can. Yeah and you look at the plaza behind him. If you say he's GonNa attitude I mean you're midfield and I. Wanted. A good team it. I've lost a few players in the average. In Harare. Yeah. We saw Everton I mean. reached. kind of average the really good looks. Yeah. Good work from United Yeah. while. While credit for the team to the system. In a way that the pope is to come on man. Lachey bit between the bucks. Products obviously wants to make things happen. Good in a way that you know superstar that he is he's no guaranteed bucking in Tame Scrapes Rowley in competition for places hoses to calls. He's on different daddy's now what a good week he's half of it is I trump seeing you know could win against Newcastle four one win away at essentially manage things start looking for different our. The question Israel. The Tribune's is demanding consistency. Israeli is always a situation while we can start to. Willing to stand in in mind denied is team they can continue to do this under making the. Well. My I know my first thought was good united and yes, could united this budgeted Monica social off with did say something that stuck with me said you know it felt so good. We were so good. We've got a foam back. We've got our form back is in some was off. Okay. All right, understandably funny preseason international not. Something was not right now, it gonNA form back. So that's it. Now them come on then so now. No excuses from now now is going to be consistent and now be some rotation and folk lucky and others will will come in a little bit but I think united funds now would expect with a time of the manages being there and he's done a little bit tinkering. Wanted more plays in the window just gone. But now kick on now be a team that looks like it dominates every match look like a team like. Appearance. Last year they did they were GONNA win every game like like city won every game for one and if I win every game that level where they can dominate a permanent game and say, Crikey, they going to win every match they they're going to dominate. So maybe they don't but they look at the pesticide rush would shows us that quality that busy style enthusiasm at body language does Mossy I'm Bruno does this thing because Bruno I? What about Bruno? He does These Fehmi. Every week, he can drive you. Must have fast nothing now. I think to say and we'll talk in late agendas show Robert about the big game united. Another text that isn't enough young village. comebacker weekend they in getting the business done vote. But let's let's say in you. Let's talk about champions. Liverpool. When I ask obviously huge disappointment would be recognition that undock GonNa Miss majority of not will the decision with the injury was now alison win at least allow. Lead significant by. A lot of is in. So a focus on Liverpool law focus on that line again Alison The in club came out and said Nah, pristine Sunday Day football well, enough to get the job though was intended to get the job done any. Rights would. Settle for being played it with Gomez is a to turn Alexander in Mobile. With the full box could is Jones golfing all in midfield next one side and one album was holding. So Henson's autumn invention up the usual. So liberal than if behavior -tations entrusting GonNa, live an eye on future games in the Mount Games coming up but. I think to go to to keep a clean sheet which was in poor the focus on we're going to be like it's a made a really good to block actually a Cleveland saw on the goal line when I state gets. Other. Little spell what you'd expect that could fully. Both jam it was pretty much is pretty comfortable. The pool without overexertion themselves got gall young go. CHOCOLATE FICO. Angle was enough to win the game in the pool. Get points away from home bookstore of jumping sleep comply job John. Look forward to the weekend. Joe Matchup Rub. We talked about this on our last show the weekend as tendency to pick up injuries he was out for this game with an injury I understand. Five just fobbing Nano I, watch the city game with this in this window here. The reports, I read the bits I've seen again he looked very good. That's two games. Now we're all these paid cinnabar and he's looked very, very impressive. As his ability to play that position, not only a couple of games I know dip prevalent we can we judges. It isn't that doesn't that give Liverpool fans real hope that he might be the guy to plug that gap do it actually better? The most people would expect. I. Think so I. Always find this just in in your view that sometimes when you play I was ascending midfield plant so you. The money you say, Jimmy job on the right side to the job, he had a new. Plant. Building applying Tommy to bit unit novel and enjoy it I wish finally last seats on six seven games. It was actually a bit lot coming up to normal position now. COMES, in with the being. So within a dino on vacation situation with with months angle, we can play but others appeal. Must Keep A. Difference in plain sentiment field descent bite withholding the aligned the. Article I. Might come into play. Intensive one off games I think he's absolutely vocal challenge in portfolio can do all day long just wanted to the Liga at the season how our be yeah. A really good point and I agree and I think that that will be question marks about it's a different position that missing in a team and a great team of course, Liverpool but year at top end the league where. Every posted his position is GonNa do really good job. You're right when do I trust a runner went up left side how do I communicate? How do I side across? How do I get in the right side window giantism eight, the ball when do I drop off known your opponents there there is a lot to it. Would make a yeah. I would have one or two games. He looks a million dollars. Just that the more things more challenges thrown his wife setup behind, you'll see over multiple games. So in twenty innings. Like We we him to lunge in make midfield tackles in rarest gift penalties, Hawaiian and Lundy again over more games that might test more. Yeah I think that's something to watch out for as we go or. Not. Oppose the. Question mobile this isn't like his strength to always personality poked I asked today a footballing team Wasn't going to be bitterly days when it comes into then I Wanted to go bit multi rats is be the same guy. Jamie bodies, you know they. Can threaten. The my threat similar. But yeah, I mean it's Faster and stuff. Feels Kinda get myself through till till John January window willing to Depending how things go on wonder demography they'll pay when you'll. Henderson. Foxtrot. Ma Even three possibly. So I'm you know if you meals? I think these options of the exchange you talked about you talked about g although his position allows one or two changes. When I was fit many be. His flexibility in midfield just. You're going. Options. Supply should mid sales. It is more important than ever to get outside and enjoy the outdoors. Now, there's a great way to do that A.

And it was not it was not vintage city rob or with very. Little down struggling a little bit they they Julius Penalty Papillon Rhyme Sterling soft penalty for me. Going to bundled into a little bit but. Tried to back out of it studying went to ground per easily but anyway borderline, but they got it. System wise tactics wise kind of a little bit like we saw the weekend you've Kaya is more like a four three three is normally see it. But consolo is a left fullback bomb because forward, which pushes sterling central to almost play alongside Guerrero and the right by call. Stays home threes. It kinda looks like a three, but it really is a forged just each fullback is very different role kind of the same shape in Midfield Benito was in that but I was in that. Gunawan scored a brilliant free-kick raw played well, and it was it was my resume guerra and sterling and it wasn't vintage city as I said I off. I. Didn't create too much toll second better. The point is I thought that it was just a little bit more focused on defensive shape and defensive structure a little bit and I. I mean he said an interview or read before the Game Rob the. I've got to do something a little different. which is again, maybe maybe maybe take. No, he didn't. You know maybe. It says. No No. Because he basically kind of admits it's my fault I season's coming my competition. So even though you know it wasn't. An amazing amazing game. Three one a little bit the the goals came later on. They look pretty good and a little bit more solid without being spectacular and. Dies has good setback back again, I kind of liked this role for Kyle Walker because you see the best. Case. Now Out He's not asked to get forty. He's not asked to do clever bits or great crosses each stays there and and consult is on the other side. So I kind of like the way the team looked I've felt funny about city like. Starting to dwindle away and the PEP. Guero back is given everybody left is. Starting to Rome Oriented nervous. What was surprised while the NHL could file if the extra focus cheating rotten maybe admitted he's got look at things adjusting little bit if. Wanting adequate luke. Would say, no I'M GONNA Now. Day. It was a time when there was very few teams seats throughout his name very few times that he wouldn't be sent to what pets doing. Just started to about maybe a transition maybe Zia ages the time is is. Is We moving beyond for on Dana not central figuring Yeah, we are because Roger is really good rotary played holden role in your role and he looks really good rob. Obviously he's young is powerful. He's good on the board and I just think he looks really good at the moment and defensively era Garcia played. In a more traditional back to Nathan, I K is is injured at the moment I think it's going to be okay. Jay Is an walker than consultant on the left. And that. You know even though he's not left-footed Consolo I think is the best. We'll be the best back four and they're all fit again Garcia was okay. Today Ruben Diaz looks looks good. But yeah. I. Came on Robin Got Nasty knock off again sub. So they made some subs photo came on found Tories came on and it was the subject to Levine for his goal choice what a lovely goal going to benefit towards the top corner So a little bit one city when when head but I I just I felt better about one city and the way that they played in the way that they looked against the Porto side that was pretty physical and it was defensive but I dunno Bev pace on counter attack this a threat and they got a wonderful goal. Diaz. The wing portrait. Holidays. Yeah yes Louis Louis Diaz. Won a good goal and it wasn't a normal city. There was a turn of those above board. Think it was Ruben Diaz has made a babbling midfield to that was turnover but were in because I looked at it closely that they weren't a decent shape. Just a really good goal dribble from the left he kept going and going and going to go and then reverse shot off the I. Mean it's a really, really nice goal. And after that city were fairly strong defensively. So yeah, I thought it was a stepping direction It's a good result. So goodstein trump champions campaign pet was excited on the sideline when the goals will go in the final whistle now. So I thought it was a pretty good diversity. Still could win Nah. We'll get him out some in in the Champions League this week eight one games. Chelsea. Nil severe nil. Should. We be pleased Chelsea keeping a clean sheet talking about trump's first bill his taken over as if channels so go to be seated not all Jewish bitten limiting i. think the Fulmer I. Think I think fans fans will bail frustrated the result. There is signs there rob the signs at Jugo silver look really good job was back in centreback. Zuma and you James at Right and your bench show at left now. As I thought this looked like the strongest team for Chelsea wrote as you back for. What Mendan- goal was very good made a really good save early honor a really clever Canada's deflection to to strong hand away from a strike that came in really good save The midfield was Giogio Anglicans I, and then you have the the talking plays. Pulisic played again on the right hand side Mason out the left habits in the hallway and up front now, there's definitely more. Focus again, a little bit like city on the defensive side you expect that given what's been going on. So it wasn't always slicking and great going forward. But it it it was better defensively. Look sound of the full bucks going to got some notes in front of me here for backs a little bit less expensive rob stated a little bit more. Soviet with a football they played probably they look the best team in the first half Chelsea pay better better football in the second of it. Let me go to thinking Robin and I looked to the team. A maybe Z. yet came on actually really good. Zik DX Z. cannot side. Probably in place of Mason Mount Vanya looking at the best version of Chelsea right now robin then it probably go. Through. that. Mean Frank Frank Loves Mason Mount. In any might. Just four to three one is going to struggle to get in if it's going to be the man I spoke to the chamber all. I wanted to run this by because. I know we've got ton of Chelsea fans, the the listening watching us in the lot fans in the US. I kind of thought about this team I thought I looked to the midfield. Look to the whole team Robina and I thought. The whole team, there's any three players. The are fully grown footballers Yoga Silva. It. Jorgihno and go county the fully grown fully matured. Footballers all the others, a learning tag growing that set in, and it's going to take time Rubio the plaza embroi- in all those from players. There's no question right and you tell me if you disagree that they are very very talented some of the best players around Europe you have some burners and. So they're very, very good place for all being into the same team at the same time they they look a little light white they look a new they look a little naive. They need reps, they need patients, they need a reps need encouragement they they need time and no Franklin pods are no expectations more and there's talking about the pressures on frank while. It believe that these plans are the real deal. The shouldn't be pressure frank. Not, not to the amount. We think is on him because visa very good place. Now, if ultra while after while Robert. If it needs to be more physicality, I would understand that because. Mount Pulisic, there's not a lot of Stephen of personality. They, they've played with full waking. So I. Good. Imagine I. mean the the the the would down his green is read. Quite rhymes end Pau the. Kids the opportunity to to mature those plays into a simple as a group they go through some tough times together get come out side of some took times and grows agree. But mob worry rob to photo that you say will Chelsea funds hopefully can look forward to. Simply, trump have some consistency. So I've just walks oil deployed today yesterday James. Kilgore Silvis amenity behind finished choice. At the weekend obviously Catholic play because. Mendi was wasn't fit. Quite. Whenever threat seven inch view the week they were losing West Brom halls time chokes questions on it takes reese James off fully grown footballer. So my point be if he if you won't be changed to become the fully integral is GonNa. Go through that you got leave him on. Letting so for that income out, they decide doesn't get any just learn anything by John, get him off I. Don't think. The. I think he's got to start to say this is my team that mentioned multi is. I think we had a compensation before the deadline or whatever slot. Tiki, team what what's your best T-? When you need to watch Yvette Steamy Goto. Comes to it. Yeah. We're. We're close to Robin and I agree with the stay with the only thing I if as run of two or three games where that green is evident I just wonder if he might. He might bring in somebody an again this is this is a change slight changes system. Motto Coverage Football Mature Good Player take out one of those takeout amount or terry cow. This I don't I don't really want to have to do that. Luga I still think these these these left in. Moody Songs. That balance of experience while bringing bringing coverage, bringing Zia it all of a sudden it doesn't so so so light west. because. This is a really important west kizer renewal. loin green to full green. What was he is? Don't thinking still not. He's still learning. He's another learning footballer. You think you think you think he's. I know. Should stop the. Commanding Important Presidents entity not wish James is not mason miles. No. Yeah, I mean. Yeah. That's the one. Yeah. I'd rather have Ruediger. I've seen I like. As a natural defender. Feel Stale personal aggressive nasty in the team needs, and then you've got the quality in the silk of Juggle. Chunks for jump shots figures in bulled out across the ninety will note the famous names inevitable. Around them state Bruce Brian Robbo from. It's Real Brian mcclair, sprinkle them with Matt around them. They will greer we. Go. Say. We'll Moseley's up the big boys wouldn't do it. That's part of the growing Robert? Sprinkler. Experience around Mount again and letting go again I. Just hope that the Chelsea fans at on the ownership don't get crazy obsessed with we spent all this money. They've spent a good money. Lami replace. If they are good players, they need time and to be trusted, they're going to get better more standing there going to grow up a little bit more the Franco original pro he'll instill a little bit that professionalism would thinking like you said now and again, it might want to spring of of your more experienced plans to help them along their way but. Again, it's it's a little disappointing result but when Israel moments where they link up and Hubbard simplistic and Verner, you know vessel talent of that is just it's going to be hard for them to be consistent about what I said a lot about politic. He shoulders the moments he showed us what was capable off and so the other plans of that. Now, the hottest thing is to do that every mean you wouldn't expect but can more consistent mount. Habits three quite games is. The team probably going to be out the team so it's just put the rascal. Patience to let them develop and grow and I hope that checkers in in in Franklin Part Chelsea Football Club of got a legend that would want to go anywhere else. If he's given the time to develop this team, they could have a really good setup for many years to come. Absolutely and him if weekend. Old Trafford Manchester United Chelsea twelve thirty is in time on Saturday huge game to. Very well, supposedly teams here in in the US. goodly with winning counseling s PSG dishes maybe jewel for Chelsea bull clean. She gives them a stall in. Hold you see this one guy friend what what are we stop by looking at the odds? Of course, we get the odds from apartments, points sportsbook, and this is what they're saying they say united win is plus one forty joys plus to sixty. Chelsea win his plus one, seven, five. So United are slight favorites. They are at home I think given what we've seen over this Champions League. Sports Book might be about right given the former that they may be going into. But then you know the whole consistency thing with the United I mean. These games are a fantastic to watch you lost young players out that on what do you think? Who Do you give given what you've seen this mid week? You agree with those odds slightly lunch not the wicked against J. Let's let me just get just wanted to check before we came. Some Fox. Chelsea thirteen goals conceded in fine much. Not Twelve goals conceded in full both these teams have not truly. Yes. I, think any one of these clean sheet? You know folds them build so. Getting, what is GONNA be settled talking talent I think it could be defense. That's. It might be pegase. Young quick forwards and yeah there's lots of them And you may be right. I think that the team that can see I can see Chelsea trying to dominate possession. That's what they do know into Lumpar can they be secure enough when it turns over? And Marcus Rashford apply that the trikes? Can Look. Kinda. Quiet. Disinterested by one language, some can sometimes look pretty point start the season pretty poorly or a sudden. Looks Fantastic. Any shows is the potential that he's got I. I would tend to agree with those odds I think united? Awesome. Favorites Rob I think most likely to be a draw but picking a winner I it will be familiar. But I did like, I, Kinda did like what Chelsea did at times and the structure is a little bit tighter compact. Wise. But yeah. I I. I think the United Probably. Probably, just nick, but it's going to be a funchess again you're. Gone Much, we talked about. is in Dayton. Finding Shelf into full day by him to speak briefs. Agent PSG Gaiman will talk about Dean Henderson got red turning Not Seek to a little off Austin tag sooners slide weather. Incentive events in being around these guys, trainings which. Is More concentrated on an played really well against. On, might you know might be the difference in the game against the Chelsea? So yeah, I'm. GonNa disagree nothing you're. Not Slide favorites. Between, non friend seems can get on the ball can make things happen depends. Violent telly goes with does he go with the pope but have possession out plan full? It'll does he go which in wooded Woodfull's the midfielder? Mike Flood's aching winners again. Yeah. Yeah. It's interesting. You just GonNa. Goalkeepers Quick Rob Dean Henderson. Is. This is where which is where the the risk if you live coming back his. It's hurting him. Isn't it? If the finds great form and it and it causes grateful man united in the manager in the funds in the team. It's not good for Dean Henderson in terms of his development and his his trying to bit being the number one going into euros in the summer. So for one man success is another man's frustration. But no, I agree and I and I, I did have faith that doubleday would find his best form again let's let's see. Yeah. To See if he can keep going and you know a couple of mistakes again and it all starts up again rob this. Swampy of equal Zenia big players. Don't throw euro putty.

"FROM STAMFORD BRIDGE TO CAMPBELL! Will keep the blue flag flying high. In the sky. WHO KEEP The blue flag flying high from SAM FOR BRIDGE TOO? Big. I three want. monocle swag. Oh. Let the boo-boys. What are they thinking? What are they thinking? Let knows boys in blue. Bell then. Because because. That's our second. Oh, what a performance! Arguably performance of the season Super Frankie landlord. He knows exactly what we. Tamari in the back time in attack, Chelsea GonNa win the Champions League may have to work on those lyrics little bit. FA Cup maybe. I am so happy. This is look. I've had happier days as a Chelsea supporter. We've doubles. We'd won the Champions League miraculous fashion we've. Found a way to win at Barcelona. After read, but Chris Wittingham. I worked for the club. Now I do the official Chelsea podcast, and this is truly a special feeling. This is even you. A neutral observer. Might be envious of how emotionally invested I am because the lows are lows, the lows are lows. We've had plenty of lows this season Chris. Wittingham. You know you've been there. You've been my shoulder to cry on. But today, my manager Mike Club, Legend, the man who scored more goals than anyone in the history of this storied club. Put on a masterclass in front of the world. We said entering this match Manchester United they're the boogeyman. They've had Chelsea's number. This is a mile marker on the season. This is much larger than the prestigious FA Cup semi final at Wembley. This is a message to sent. Because if you lose to Manchester United, it becomes a thing hell. It might already be a thing. Chris Wittingham a thing no more because Frank Lampard tactician extraordinaire came out with the formation. Formation that only gunners soldier was so afraid of he decided to change his in-form team, one of the best teams after the re-start, because he was shaking in his boots at what Franklin part might bring to the table, and he played himself Chris Wittingham. Let me catch my breath. Let me get your neutral thoughts. Tell me why this match was won. The second starting eleven came out. Chris Wittingham I. WAS GONNA. Ask you need to be here for this. I feel like this is going to be. Totally here. I I was catch my breath. Make sure this listening experience for audience is in incredibly grading. I'm sure it already is. We've passed that threshold Chris Wittingham. We're recording right after the match and you can tell we're giving who were talking to feel like I'll be the one here if I even bring like a dollop of criticism, but you're right. There's nothing to really criticized. The starting lineups play such a role because clearly Chelsea was thinking a lot about the threats Manchester United Offer, and we talked about them that front four. It's amazing and scored. Scored so many goals and the build up to this game and what was just going to do so I think only as you said played himself, he was thinking the adjustment for the adjustments. Chelsea is going to do this, so we're GONNA do this. We're going to match him system for system and all he ended up. Doing was completely nullifying his best players in what they do best right and Chelsea. I mean we talked about as well in the buildup to the match Manchester. UNITED CAN BE FROM A. A pricing standpoint. They don't play well out from the back, and Chelsea got after him. The pressing I thought for ninety four minutes. You still here eighty seven minutes. It's three one and a tiny go for it. Go Go for it. Go for Gopher, Callum, Gopher, go for like they're constantly pressing and pressing and pressing making life difficult for Manchester United and it just seems like okay, so only realizes he's made a mistake. He goes to the four after Eric to come off, and hopefully he's okay, but only has. Has To make the change they bring on marshy out to move to a backdoor and it just by that point. The game had gone, and there was no rhythm for Manchester. United to find and Chelsea completely snuffed out any hint of Manchester United Attacking I. Think Kovachevich sealed that player of the season award today I really do. We had fun doing the American Sports Talk Radio Topic of is Christian Pulisic. The player of the season Kovachevich today with that performance epoch. It Bruno Fernandez Knocks Greenwood on his. And then you don't hear from Greenwood the rest of the match. Welcome to Wembley Welcome. Thunderdome. Unbelievable performance from Kovacic Reese James helluva bounceback very rusty. Start for re shames post, restart and I really like this back. With Reese James going forward. Inevitably, we'll do it again and maybe won't work out so well. It's been the tail of the Chelsea season. Don't get to married to a formation and don't get married to a certain tactic malleability versatility that is a calling card of our manager. Look, we all know clubs like Liverpool Man City it seems as though Liverpool seem so far and away. The class of the Premier League I don't know if they've been on a beach will find out mid week. You would hate to see a bad performance from them. If you're a neutral given that they've already built out the stage there, I imagined. They're gonNA come to play, but let's just say this premier. Premier League I think everyone considering the signings coming into to Chelsea. This is going to be much more hotly contested premier league next season. Those are going to spend money, and you want to know going into a match against. Pep going into a match against KLOPP. Do I have like a clear disadvantage here? Tactically, because those are highly regarded managers, tacticians I feel so much better about my chances now because this as I said was a mile marker, and every time I sort of looked at myself in the mirror, my God. Are you going to do this? I texted you during the match them five times. I felt that this season. How is frank going to pull this off? Very first match of the season, how was Franken and pull this off? This is a nightmarish fixture to start your year a season in which you're playing a bunch of young kids, and you have the transfer band. Get trounce four zero. Even though that came out gone differently. If a couple breaks go the a different way, supercup. Man We, just got trounced by Manchester United Four Zero House. It's GonNa Happen. We gotTA PK's in that game against Liverpool and you realize okay. There is some fight in the squad. The Tottenham match we were at in December. It felt like that was the season at that. Point Spurs writing a bunch of momentum. How is Frank Lampard going to go into? Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and beat Josie Marino his mentor. Two Zero. How are Chelsea going to play Liverpool and come away with this win advancing in the FA Cup. They are taking this seriously, and we're starting a boy and billy Gilmour. Eliminate Liverpool from the FA Cup. This was such a monumental match this one. I'm so happy. I am so happy Frank Lampard got dub. We are so close Chris the goal. Was Lot the expectations for Frank Lampard any new job he was taking. Could he finish outside the top four and keep his job? Of course absolutely anybody would give him the benefit of the doubt. Could he go and entire season without winning a trophy? Absolutely Josie Breen did that depends on how good your premier league season goes so close to finishing top for and getting a trophy his. His first full season as Chelsea manager with a team that went to Windows without any signings, a young young team that has battled through adversity and injury all season long. We are so close mission accomplished so close I'm so excited for the future of this club and if we just do that if we finish the job, I am going to be even more insufferable than I am. And there's really two matches left that determine whether or not you accomplish this goal. All of a sudden you become a Manchester United Fan and hope that they beat Leicester on the final day. That means Leicester's Champions League campaign is over there, not catching Chelsea, that's it job done and Chelsea can even win in mid week at Liverpool, and they could end the job themselves, and maybe spoil their title Lift Party, but either way all you need is managed to beat Leicester, and it's over because Lester lost today by three goals to nil. They've been dreadful for six months now. And today was the cap having been hammered by Tottenham Hotspur and as you. You said an FA Cup final against Arsenal having gotten to that aspect of it, another cup final against arsenal to come, and they had their own. You know I don't want to call a miracle. But their own surprise result against Manchester City that no one expected, and so you enter this final with a chance to get a trophy and get the top four trophy which I think a lot of clubs are yearning for so I. do want to mention one more game because you mentioned those five games that it's well how Frank Lampard going to do this. I do think early in the season. Ashley'll in the Champions League after they lost that first. First match against Valencia and it looked like well. If they don't get something from this game, they could really struggle to qualify to the champions, league remember during that group stage was Harry were not qualify, and they managed to Eke out those results, and really grind him out and ended up getting into the round of sixteen, which is big financial for the club. So there are moments where Franklin part is had to get it right and to date. I think he has. Yeah, you could probably lump in that win away. Against Wolves, said WHO can forget tomorrow. He's absolute world. One of the goals of the season that match. Yeah, there are moments in. In a season make or break moments, and when you have a top four battle this tight and look I understand everyone's going to favor as united in that match I've grown to trust notch rusting Manchester United every time I think I got them figured out. They do something perplexing I picked Manchester United in this match I just think that that attack is overwhelming. What I didn't anticipate was Chelsea punching them in mouth, and only under sole Shar being so worried about what Frank Lampard would do that. He betrayed what got him to the dance? I didn't understand it. This is a manager that's been starting the same starting eleven famously now since a restart. Away from that and I know that he already did the Josie Marina move of planting the seeds of well. It's unfair. They've had two more matches Razan. I appreciate. The Gamesmanship I I'm from the school. Marino I get it, but most people were picking Manchester United in this match. You couldn't help but pick Manchester United, not just on recent form, but in their matchups recently they've absolutely own. Chelsea I am so stoked. They did this without politic. They did this without Colo content. Hopefully they are back mid week against Liverpool, but let us concentrate a little bit more on this match. Starting Eleven, we go to a back three that three five hybrid with Alonzo and Reese James on the wings. We haven't really seen reese James in this role because he hasn't been fit the time set frank, Lampard called on it restrains. Going forward is a revelation, not just. Just the crosses, but he had some attempts on goal. That were quite impressive to Heya was there to Heya Oh my God. How're oh? Oh, we'll talk about Mesa Mount in a second, but let us praise reese James deservedly so Chris. How do you rate this performance from one reese James? It was sensational and I agree that maybe the system you've got to fullback slash wingbacks that might be better in the system, which is why you might see it more because you talk all the time about Marcus Alonzo being better in this kind of setup, although he didn't make his impact felt, we generally know that's where he's better and I think reese James allows him to not really have to focus so. So much on the distribution aspects of it, and it's not quite as defensive focused as traditional fullback position would be, and you're right just threw himself. About was great in the pressing getting into those areas to measure crosses and shots as well. I just felt like he did. It was a very little things kind of performance. We talk all the time about his opportunities to get assists and create chances, but it was very little. Things win the ball off of man united players make them uncomfortable and keep possession moving in a way that we just haven't seen from recent restart so I agree with you a lot of plaudits and social media and well-deserved yet. There's been some talk maybe Reece's place in. In the squad is in so settled given how this performances have been as of late, but we keep hammering those crosses or all world. You can't just take that for granted and today. He showed you his own versatility. There has been some talk of even just putting him as a defensive midfielder Frank Lampard on values, versatility and malleability because he himself as a manager does that he's not married to a certain system. He's just married to winning Chris. Let's talk about the handsome man. The handsome man that Mike Golic do near dub so the lesson. Let's be honest. Michael Junior didn't invent calling ligation. Rueda handsome man. He's been called that for the better part of thirty years, but the handsome man. Totally changes. The complexion came Chris you and I thought for sure this would be a first forty five minutes of to teens feeling each other out new formations. Let's get to halftime. Make our judgments and breathe life into this game and a very bizarre first half. That's all unfortunate injuries and water breaks, even though Franklin part is wearing a winter coat alleviation route gets on the scoresheet in the eleventh minute of first-half stoppage-time, and it kind of felt like that might be game. Man United just never recovered. They never go into the game, and and also you compounded with the fact that that Chelsea scored so quickly after halftime Mason Mount. Like normally I would love to give him credit for the pressing that he did. It was just dreadful. Give away from Brandon, Williams, that allows him out to go in and another and that goalkeeping error at least the second, but would alleviate. Giroux brings, and we talk about all the time, and you come up against teams that are defending is those smarts that intelligence in that ability to craft in tight spaces, but those smarts can also I kind of wish that he had not even world-class Pace. Just good pace, so we can make the kind of runs that smart. Smart striker's make, because he gets to the near post and all the time he goes through that little of the boot flick to get past the goalkeeper, and it just never comes off. It's always awkward. It's coming at a weird angle this time it comes off. It's a brilliant goal. I I love just the craft of that at and the run, and it was just such a brilliant move, and as you said because of the nature of the game because it was so slow, the first half is pretty methodical and you're trying to figure what each team is. Is going to do to get a goal before half after all the injuries he kinda completely changes the dynamic of the game. As you start the second half, there are many players like this on the national team side and on club side. You're just not gonNA. Find a player that age well. Let's throw age Adamy. You'RE NOT GONNA. Find a striker like this unbelievable player. I'm so happy. He is earned that extension I know what club policy had been prior to what assigning this was from arsenal, and he will most likely get the start against his former club. Club in a Wembley Cup final against a team that absolutely deserves to be in the FA. Cup final breathtaking performance. David Louise Clap Him. Look, we take the first opportunity. We came here to laugh at some of his hijinks. He is what he is, and occasionally he'll pull pull out a defensive Saul work performance and he did against Manchester City. Manchester City just couldn't allergic to getting a shot on frame. And this is a fun final always fun when Chelsea and Arsenal get together now they arsenal has won this competition more than any other team. Poke Fun at. At them and all sensitive when I said always loved. These small club makes Cinderella run to Wembley final, but when you see the juggernauts that we're in this final four Chris, that's a team that really doesn't belong when you just look at them, and they've done well fan of Arteta's. And this is going to be a Wonderful Cup final. They've beaten Chelsea recently in an FA Cup final. Remember going down to ten men, yego costs breathing life into that game and still not enough to hold on to that FA Cup I am very excited about this. A London Darby. Darby in the FA Cup final I cannot wait Cinderellas of its strong, just because of historically what they bring, but within their season I definitely think it is, they've been midtable Mueller a random point in the year twenty three matches in their in twelfth, and it's like this is arsenal we're talking about, and they've just looked so far off the pace, and yet in a week pull off a victory against Liverpool a victory against Man City and doing it kind of in the Non Arsenal way right? It's defensive solidity. It's not keeping possession. It's not the creativity that. That you came to expect from arts and vendor teams, and they've just gone about an entirely different way, and it's so impressive that they've gotten to this point, and now it'll be curious to see again. Chelsea will be the favorites arsenal have to make it up and I. Just don't know heading into that one how Chelsea will approach. It's a brilliant competition, and I understand that it's been diluted by many pundits. Many fans because you see some of the lineups that some of the major teams have trotted out this competition and in, and it gives the impression that. That they don't treat it as seriously champions, league, we all know the money that's attached and naturally. That's going to be prioritized. Chelsea have gone for this trophy from the outset. Yes, there have been some rotational subs. There've been some fitness subs, but a lot of the subs you've seen. Today was purely tactical. It was an unbelievable benefit to get the American Christian Pulisic some rest. Hopefully he's fresh and ready to go. That is a player that is getting. beat up and I I really chuckled at one of his interviews. It said I'm used to this play. Doris He's fouled a lot in concha concacaf that makes me a little happy that he knows what his body is in line for. Although this is a player that struggled with injuries so anytime you can sit them in a game and win that game against Manchester United Three one to seal your spot in a Wembley final. It is just it's a beautiful thing with talk about the back line, just a little bit here because Ruediger. Yeah, there was at one moment with marshy al.. Almost drawing a penalty because Zuma didn't necessarily trust himself. Let the ball bounce a little bit more, but they didn't make the mistake Chris winning hand. There was one mistake made in this game and it was made by Callum Hudson at. So once again. Centrebacks, we ride them Ruediger probably should've had a goal. If it wasn't for slap head getting the own goal, Phil Jones in his prime looking all jealous. This back line was impressive to me, ask. The question is a person that we always mention you'd never give them credit when he gives you a great performance. We had a Sicily Quetta. We had positioning understanding that he's on the losing end. If this is a straight line battle to a ball, he'll get himself back in the right position. And he did that quite well in this match Chris and one of the things that we talked about in the build up to. It was that you're GONNA have to. To, slow, down Manchester United before it gets into the attackers, but even in the rare times where they did break, and it looked like you know Bruno Fernandes, Epson, space, which rarely did there was one moment where marshy I was making running behind it. You can see it and Kabul was quick off his line, and just in general in needed to be a perfect ball to get around Ruediger into that channel so I just think from minute one you defend from the front right? The pressing is A. A huge part of making life easy on that back line and look I think many united like two or three shots on target seven shots total. That's nothing especially from what they've produced. In recent times, it starts from you know even Georgina and coach in the middle, having to cover a lot of ground. They did cover a lot of ground, but that defense is again and again was nothing things out. There wasn't any corner. Issues wasn't any set-piece issues. Whereas any moment where you're sweating, we've talked for you. You know match after match without sweating any chance that comes their way if they had the game under control, and this was a game that we dubbed a big mason. Mount Match Mesa Mount subbed off a couple of times at halftime once in the FA Cup match prior to against Leicester Sat out an entire match. We haven't seen that from Frank Lampard at all, but we knew Mesa Mount was going to be in the starting eleven because you need a high press against man united and there is. Is Nobody better on this team at the high resumes amount world-class motor on that kid great to see him get on the scoresheet because it is been months. It's a very good thing for his confidence. Just because his performances have earned it look I. Don't feel any better about his em product because that was a horror show from David, Hale, and we can talk about who the hell is going to be Spain's national team keeper, but let's just if we can try to look past. How terribly David Bahia. Bahia played that huge for Mason Mount. And you saw the confidence grow within him Chris after he scored that goal, frank wanted a brace for Mesa Mount. You heard him shouting at him. One of the cool parts about not having fans in that stadium, shouting at him in the counterattack, he running, keep running mason deserve to get on the scoresheet, a great performance from some mouth, and that effort that we talk all the time about in the press is a huge part of making that system work, but. But also felt like once he got on the ball. It was a bit better from him. And obviously once you get into that situation where you're smart to kind of share towards the middle and inexplicably united defender. Just gives you the ball. You have to take it and do something with an obviously the mistake plays a role, but I think that amount of confidence could be huge for a player like Mesa amount. He hadn't scored since the Everton match. which is that last game pre-start the four nil. Nil that they hammered Everton at Stanford Bridge, and when you go that long without scoring, you see the confidence start to go and we've seen at times even from shots that were saved. Mason has a striking him he can you know aim it for the top corner? I think in the Aston Villa match yet when there was really solid, but in recent times it seems like there's been a Lotta scuffed efforts, and he hasn't really caught his shots cleanly, and even though that one. Didn't you know the? Clean if you're making about you forget about that, and you just think well. I scored a goal and scored the next one and I think that measure of confidence can be really going forward as a player that's been hauled off at halftime twice in two weeks. Confidence is really important for high level athletes and I. Think Mason Mount will hopefully got a huge bump of confidence from that huge for. For the entire squad to make it to a cup final given the trust at Frank Lampard has imparted with this team. The Youth Academy we could write several essays on it. I mean we've done several shows on the hand that Chelsea were dealt huge for their experience. Win Or lose against Arsenal massive that this young core got to this final. Let's talk about the goalkeeper situation. I fully anticipate Caballero. Caballero between the pipes against Arsenal and that FA Cup final wasn't really called on to be spectacular today. I thought he had a couple of good moments coming out of the box and heading one clear I thought was really strong moment for him i. mean he wasn't shaky. You didn't make any mistakes today Willy Cabanera. When they played the ball to him. Sure this new one kick it long based. Based on form I guess the question is. Does spring continue to ride? Willie Cavallo for the rest of the season. No I think he'll be your cup competition goalkeeper. I. Don I doubt he'll get the start against Liverpool. This feels like you see clubs very often commit to this man. City if Claudio Bravo was healthy would've started him in the Cup semifinal arsenal clubs generally commit to playing their reserve. Fake up, and sometimes in the Cariboo as well, but you're right, I think part of that calm and part of that assuredness that you had at the back. Was Kaba gyro being there in the right moments coming off his line on a few occasions that first one it was like in the second minute he goes running outside of his penalty, or to head the of play, reminding you that Lester match. When when we went for a little journey, it felt like He. He was in control of it the whole time, so it is interesting, though that at times it feels like that back four or that back. Five is more comfortable with caviar behind them, and they look more assured when he's in goal. Generally on the season, they haven't given away as many goals. When Kobe Gyro has been there, you do kind of wonder, if maybe they feel more confidence off of the older Cobb Airways more experienced. He kind of feels like He. He knows when to come off his line a little bit more. It just feels in general more assured when he's in there. I'm not sure if that's a coincidence all right, we'll wrap up. This first segment will catch a breath. Let's talk to a club legend He'd been promising our audience for weeks and weeks Claude Makelele. Joining us here on Chelsea miked up. We caught up with Claude before the match Manchester United. So you won't get any insight, but you will. Will Get some insight on the season as a whole and Claude Makalele is one of the players is mostly responsible for this turnaround. This elite turnaround at Chelsea Football Club, an honor to have him on the podcast, so let's welcome Claude Makelele on, and then we will preview our next match in which Chelsea conceal their champions. League fate. If they put up a winning performance at Anfield, we will talk about that a little bit, but here is club legend Claude Makelele. Watch minute of every match download. The fifth found the official Chelsea. Welcome back to Chelsea Mike Dub this is a real thrill and honour for our podcast, because we are joined by Claude Lali and Claude. I want to get right into this. There's so many legendary moments that you had with the club, but your role was a role that wasn't often noticed by the average fan sitting at home. Other players knew what you did. You were the engine that kept the entire machine running. How do you come to grips with the fact that you're so respected by your peers? But since they're not bagging in goals at this crazy rate that the average fan may not know how hugely important you are to your team success. Is A I think my job in not me sick like makes a balance about between defender and a striker. I enjoy to learn a lot between also be clear before when I'm younger. Bay Midfield Day you need to be very Janus. And always be clever, intelligent, or so that make you teammate in a goodway mentality, and the technically I did no I won't make. Name LEXI's because we're not starting playing is that it used to do my job? URGE BASE AT and. Also young play want to get my example and I'm sure you've been an incredible example for all those young people that have probably come up to you and ask you how to play your position now. Is this something that you always wanted to do because I think a lot of kids growing up to be the glory. They WANNA score all the goals or create all the chances and be forwards and wingers. Did you of always have this role in mind for yourself? Swick. Jury she mac undo both be at number ten, the Masika and palatial because I starting understand. People starting always. I think. You. Get the mega defense in your cheap so when you first came to Chelsea Chelsea club that were mid table to just outside of Champions League so you were part of that group of players that came in and sort of changed the culture at Chelsea. How difficult was that to sort of change the mindset of the club and you really started. What was one of the greatest runs in club history? They're still in the middle of it. How influential do you think players like you were I? Think I come on. victims. We have one crediting EMEC memo stronger. Make me morning stander hate losing at put my Mba short so jeeter of course. I! Chase! White not hush not talking to. Warn Aptitude. Gay Men like never gave over. We some to the justice pretense staten. Setting believe okay and beater much stale. Statman we did you make opens the ICEFALL player. We can do more. Think. It's difficult now jetties. Period the squadron. Is that good? Never give up N. G. Suite. Lots of pair you grow up and you stay in that mentality has into the present day I think you felt it throughout the generations in this Chelsea squad wanted to ask you about a player that has been compared a lot to you a French holding the fielder and Golo. Kante can you explain for our listeners based on your experiences? What a player like Angola contact can do not just in terms of helping the team defensively, but allowing team to spring forward and attack because of the base that in Gulu provides. You midfieder need up. Quick Peter News doesn't matter for your team. Give for you teammate when you seem is likely happiness. I'm not talking about what did you? Have, technique everything does this. Make you. Make him any senator food. Need enjoy I think for for Checchi's is a one layer for tracy displayed can move joined by Claude Makelele Chelsea legend someone that help change the culture at the club one last question before I. Let you go. You've been so generous with your time Claude you played alongside Frank Lampard. Frank has always said the nicest things about you and how much you helped. His career freedom allowed him to be this beautiful creative mid. He's now the manager thrust into this position. There was this transfer band that he had to deal with a very young team having to turn to the academy. How would you describe the job? Frank Lampard has done in his first year as Chelsea. Manager Glenn. I'm not. have. I think when I play. The family He puts the mine. Also be manager. Make them believe it. Is Incredible. We saw about these. Favorite, with my Najer, as is squad. In a buffet twig I'm. Starting to Fade A, I'm sure. All Right? It was a real thrill talking to you Claude. Thank you so much for everything that you did with the club. Really embedding this culture of championship winning, he brought that over from Real Madrid as you said and the club have not looked back. It's great to have you back with the club. Please enjoy the rest of your time with the club. Being such an influential figure, it's a real benefit to these young players to be able to turn to a player, Claude Mkhalele and ask him for advice Oh thank you so much for all your great contributions to the clubs here. Thank you. Called you're listening to Chelsea Mike Talk. We thank. Claude Makelele again for his time. It's never easy getting someone on the phone of that stature. It's doubly difficult during a pandemic, so thank you so much to Claude Makelele and the club for putting that together all right if I can look past what Chelsea just did at Wembley. Let us talk about this Liverpool match now it's still plenty early. County will be fit. We hope we pray. We anticipate Christian Pulisic being back out there in the starting eleven, unless frank wants to do this three five hybrid again and then Christian Pulisic isn't exactly a fit for that Chris. Why don't you explain to the audience? A lot of American newcomers are coming to this podcast supporting Chelsea because Christian Pulisic is playing so well, and they may not understand why. They didn't see their American hero out on. On the pitch against Manchester United. Can you explain as a neutral observer? Why that was the right move? When Frank decided on this formation, I think Pulisic could play in that five, two, three, three, four, three. Whatever you, WANNA call it shape right. You can play him as a white man who comes in central. That's basically what he's been doing. This entire a restart right. He starts his as the white man in a four three three. Three, but then plays really close to ever. The striker is so while I. DO understand that maybe at times he can be a casualty of the shape. I also think it can be a part of it. However, it played in six or seven straight matches, and it felt like like we as Americans while we also, we want to see him. Play every game and perform well every game. You and I were both starting to think i. I mean at some point. It's gotta get arrest. It's starting. It's playing ninety minutes every time he starts and so i. just think with so many games look, they play again on Wednesday and they'll play again on Sunday, and then have the FA Cup final. Champions League match against. Byron Munich there so many games to play in such a short space of time that I think it was a perfect opportunity to get him arrest, you mentioned. Mentioned, how at times teams don't necessarily take cup competitions, too? Seriously I'm not saying that Lampert wasn't. But you make a change in goal and make a change in shape, and you bring some new players in so I don't necessarily think that Lampard was all I'm looking ahead towards the primarily match against Liverpool, but I'm going to try something different and laws player to get arrested, and then I thought. I thought entering the game at the subs. Subs would determine the outcome of the game because you see Pogba on the bench, you see Mason Greenwood on the bench. You See Anthony Marceca on the bench and you see politic on the bench. The attacking players that can really call as an impact I thought. We're GONNA. Come on and change it, but once they're up three nil. Just get them the full rest, and allow him and allow arrested for the Liverpool match. Yeah, you aren't. Aren't alone in that. I thought I had this match pegged and boy. Was I wrong look I? Made a Chelsea Cheddar prediction, knowing what Manchester United were going for in that starting eleven. I knew that they were also going to have three in the back and they're gonNA play. Some players have been known to be a bit of a liability defensively in players that you can trust all went out. The window after buys separate that horrendous. Horrendous head injury marcial came on and then Chelsea scored, but if a bizarre game I don't know what it's like to play under those circumstances of deep concern, look by had oxygen strapped to him so very scary stuff but I also thought Christian Pulisic was going to have a say in this match and one of the pleasant, the lights of wrapping this game up early and going as soon as that Howler was given up by David. You realize Oh man. We can actually rest Christian for the entire match. This is pretty big going into this match against Liverpool. The champions they are going to be lifting this trophy. So, what do they really have to play for I? Guess because I don't want to be embarrassed the day that they lift the Cup Chris. Yeah, that for. Narrative of they're gonNA live the trophy there. They've made this whole big deal out of building out some kind of stage in the COP. End Right. If the fans aren't there, you might as well be where you're most die. Hard fans would be. Maybe you know. This is their last home match of the season wrapping up. What's amazing campaign? You want to end that with a victory Liverpool of Jobson results. Results here, they lost Man City. They lost at Arsenal and so you can tell that maybe it's not the full intensity. I think at times Liverpool in that matching. It's arsenal. We're really good, but it just whatever reason is not been that same inevitability that you had pre restart where no matter what? They're going to win the match. They've been a little bit vulnerable. Obviously drew the Merseyside Derby in. In their first match and return, so there is a possibility for check for Chelsea to get something from this I. Think the way that you're looking at it right now. By the time they gave me gets over, pull kicks off. Man United will have played against West. Ham will be interesting to see once. That result comes in what Chelsea situation looks like in the table, and ultimately what do they? They need going forward. I'd obviously liked to put this away. Yeah, they'd week, but this is tough. It's coupling time, and you'd think Liverpool will put their best effort forward. Considering they just lost the arsenal. Who seem to be really coming on here? What is the history of the gold plated Premier League trophy my lifetime I, remember the invincibles of Arsenal. Had the gold plated primarily trophy during neutral observer. Observer with a keen eye on all things Manchester City I. Don't believe. Go play trophy. When they broke a hundred points, although they should should've with all the lead time that Liverpool had. I mean they've been champions for awhile now, and it's been a foregone conclusion if they were in line to set the points record. Do you think this might have been a gold trophy I? Don't know what the rules. Rules are when it comes to set gold trophy. Actually it is only ever been awarded to the invincibles and I. Don I and reading very quickly here? I don't think that was the plan. I don't think the plan was to give them a gold trophy, but because as starting to realize, we need to commemorate this with something special team that has never lost. They decided to award. They may gold-plated. gold-plated trophy, so the Manchester City centurions do, and I have a gold plated trophy I guess it is a achievement that was arbitrarily decided that it's for teams. They don't lose so Liverpool once they lost to Waterford lost the ability to have a gold plated trophy. It'd be interesting though to see if they were maintaining that. Same sort of pays even with a loss to Waterford with all that lead. Lead time he thinks someone would just be kicking around an idea throwing a water paper and a wastebasket and said hey, why don't we make the trophy gold, but doesn't matter anymore because they are not the record setting team. They looked so should be I once again. I imagine their best lineup. Their best effort and I think it's going to be really difficult to take points from Liverpool this day. Chris Wittingham your final thoughts. Not just on this match against Manchester United which I will remember forever I. Wish were clean. She three zero sounds so much better. But Either way your final takeaways from this match and we're Chelsea are going forward in the FA Cup lining. As you've talked about an opportunity to accomplish the goals of the season as improbable as they might have seemed at the time, but at Chelsea. It's finished in the top four and win at least one trophy, and they're on their way towards doing so mid week some huge. Huge Games to come with man united and Chelsea playing on Wednesday in that race for the top four as well and then all you need is one win from the last two guarantees you top spot, because less having lost, so you got to win one of your last two and that achievement is on the cards and we'll see if if they get on Wednesday you. You can kind of head into the final weekend of the season. Maybe even rest eleven players for the Cup final and figure out what you're GonNa do, but it went on Wednesday would really cap off. It's been an incredible restart for Chelsea. And then you've got your job done, and then you head towards an FA Cup final and know that this season can be memorable for. For, so many different reasons I'll remember the season for the sweats. I've had plenty sweats this season. I don't think I'm going to escape the sweats I would love a home victory against a sleepwalking Liverpool that have been on a beach since the restart, but I think this final match week of the Premier League. Season has a few scares left in it and I'm fully. Anticipating it, and we will go on this journey together. We will talk to you after that match against Liverpool Katie Nolan a Liverpool supporter will be our guest, and no matter what she is going to be in an annoying mood, because when loser draw Liverpool lifting that primarily trophy for the first time well let her quote, and we will talk about the future of this rivalry between Chelsea and Liverpool as these matches have been good, and we anticipate that match midweek being no different right so. I've caught my breath Chris Winningham. I'm still glowing. I probably peaked on this microphone. More than either of US would like. Brings me great joy to tell you the listener. We will talk to you again mid week till we speak again. The Chelsea.

Part of the east end of long island roach is the but as because we are back and it gives me enormous pleasure to say these words like mitch trubisky wall. We can david what what time to be. Alive hopes. the most remarkable feature of a remarkable weekend roads was the performance of mitch trubisky in the best. The second coming or is it the third four four fifth. How old it up dave. Oh baby i'm doing okay. The i would have to say that is often happens that we can develop lira which haven't been going very well for dave over the last few years eight. It was not anywhere near the worst thing that happened this weekend. It was a my greatest weekend of all time but this morning. I had one of those moments where i'm starting to feel my age and i think i'm really starting to feel my age because i'm trying really hard time travel and compete tennis again. I turned fifty five in march. And i go into a new age group in the us to go into the super. I go into the men's fifty five and over and i have this illusion. I have this bizarre fantasy. I can compete on a national level in america. Roads in britain competed as a in america. And so i'm training really really hard. And that's forcing all sorts of problems with my buddy had a moment this morning where i turned into that old git. The i used to see the tennis club when i was a kid. And i always thought on. Never be their old gear. And today i was old git git playing tennis wearing an arm sleeve. It worth an arm sleeve. It was a yellow arm sleeve. It was it was a cry for help in every single way. And both as i put it on as i've played with it and as i took it off. I just loathed myself roach. I loathed myself. I'd actually rather continue to have this deadening pain in my arm than with that thing again. Oh philip larkin was not much tennis player but he did come over. Line is what i think of when a hair by moldy repulsive swimming oil horrific that lam's he said life life is slowly dying and that's what i think of when i think about year yellow walmsley rule david ups some downs ups have been on the football field. Nothing to do with me whatsoever. I will say my spirits were lifted immensely this week by a raven we received from jeff. Oh opaque paul mott's in the great great city chicago.

The managing partner for the entire firm started with the toast. Eulogizing an attorney that had unexpectedly passed away this year. I never knew the man he was honoring that was until this man was described. It was said he was warm-hearted. Full of life amazing energy and a die hard liverpool fan. That's when it hit me. That i had heard this exact same mournful description months ago when you both emotionally spoke of the passing of og gop. Jason kennedy. I listened to that pod back in june as i was tearing up even though i never knew him today. The emotions of wealth backup. I just wanted to pass on. That is passing is still fell. His memory lives on an even though. I never knew him. It will continue to live on with me.

Let's make this better for you right now. So the football and l. blaze erico. Let me pat you patronisingly on the head right through the screen as i read the score. Everton one chelsea nil. You'll mob lay the trip. Wire that stops my chelsea's seventeen game unbeaten streak in all competitions. The game's lone goal came on twenty two minutes when edwin mendy steamed through in the box with all the zeal of aaron. Donald guilty converted the ensuing penalty. And from there. It was on this week's many blazes guests jordan pickford and the post to make some phenomenal saves down the stretch. Especially from reese james chelsea's best and perhaps only player in the end. Everton give the two thousand fans felt like way more to return to goodison what they came to say congrats roach. I actually mean that. I really do. Meaning that mental. It was some emotional scenes. There like you pick a man than i am. You needed it more than we needed it roach year. A small amanda. It's true that's not an say didn't need it in many ways. Cat the walk. You're right. I'm going to admit it and i needed it. We everton football club needed it. I mean we needed that. Lender walk-off between dc ellen. Olivier's your to go better than it does in my wildest dreams and really did after. Tell the before kick-off. I was dreading this one day for a read. Headlines like ben show well telling the guardian when chelsea go to matches. We feel like we can't really lose the moon. That was a mistake. No crap because he was playing everton and this season has been a cruel trick even by our standards. The form table for the past seven premier league games before kick-off had collies mob four from bottom only object duffers west brom arsenal and sheffield it below west worse fans. Were back at goodison. I thought at the time just intoned to say no how poor jen didn't even get the chance to finish. Melting statue of emits. Enormous am about. God made a good and i was terrified that we might hear what two thousand people whistling with disgust. Sounds i in this game so confident at zero was any of you really afraid before. Kick-off david the erico. And i particularly don't like it over the previous few seasons where chelsea particularly well especially up goodison park place. We pretty struggled. I don't like it. I like talking about the overall season. And how we do it. The overall season like the overall stats rather than the big picture. Rather than me rather than digital games but look. I've been feeling pretty good about chelsea. And i still feel pretty good about chelsea. I'll give you some of my futile asterisks later. I'm a little concerned about. But i still feel pretty good about chelsea and they came into the side playing good football. Didn't play that well midweek in krasnodar wherever krasnodar is. It's a place where dreams thought we were going to say. It's the jank of russia but it was a but yeah i was feeling pretty good about chelsea coming in notwithstanding that we had some injuries but evidence certainly had injuries to no shameless. Yeah no lucas dean. Yeah failed the four centrebacks across the back most terrifying revolt in for hamas guelfi. Yeah like a hanbury. I mean no pain in that side outside of whoops enrich all said so chelsea had possession evident all game twenty percent of the boom mazing right. But we did. That was smart. We push chelsea wide. We were happier with the ball. Have his feet. We dead in the nba. We'll give you that. Three point shot howard's but he looks so scared. Look scared to fail right now. He's almost like this guy is a gifted talent no doubt you watched him in germany. He has a spatial awareness a speed but it looks like a player move watched more than i have. Who's not trusting is natural instinct and natural gifts at and i think part of that genius game plan of pushing chelsea at wide is chelsea have three significant injuries callum hudson. Oh toy hockey and a certain christian pulisic those are our only wingers in the squad. Does he have an injury or does he have tony and awareness. It is i says. Can you say that. I have aware of this. I must say awareness of mine tie which is maybe. I'm wearing an arm sleeve. I've had them to win. Anything balu my nipples for about the past. Ten months might say awareness. The sad beautiful poetry of christian pulisic injuries i was she sat for. He wasn't playing but so relieved that he couldn't do us. David which would have been so bitter sweet and confusing so have a look. He's a twenty one year old kid who has played ten games ten appearances for chelsea in all competitions. He's had some decent appearances and in some of his appearances. That were okay. He's had moments that literally are sublime this was his worst game in a chelsea shirt. No doubt about it. He looked overall and what he looked. Overawed by more than anything else than what i was so impressed with everton with your everton was their sheer physicality. They seemed inspired by having two thousand and fans has stadium. Yeah they came out from the off so physical and so inspired and only one chelsea player really had that same matching intensity. And that was james. I thought engulfed had a pretty good game was mason mammals. Pretty good but it was really reese. James was fantastic but he really stood out because he was the only player who could match the intensity of the entire everton team. I absolutely right about these two thousand and when we did have the ball on those rare occurrences they bathe us on and they were out there seat. When dominic covid lewin charged onto little pixies. Long cake ran eight. Oh mandy well. You have to explain what happened. Mendy juicing to charge through the beautiful apps of calvin lewin erotic decision making. I've never seen a goalkeeper. Not named jordan. Pickford do that. what was he thinking. But i think he's had a couple of moments like this but they haven't resulted in. You know goals or even chances. He's got a little fortunate. I think if he knew more about dominant cavite lewin. I don't think he would have come for that bull if he really knew his game but a fantastic long ball from jordan pickford one of the strengths of his game that nobody ever makes fun offices distribution fantastic long ball. You know dc l. with those that you know fourteen pack that he's got house himself up to win the header. Antoine mendy is horribly. You know my guess is not quite as much communication in that central defence as there has been chelsea. Been very good at the back for these seventeen games. That's why they've been unbeaten but it was a you know a bad moment for keeper. Who's had a very very good start in his chelsea life and you know you've got to say deservedly for the opening twenty minutes of huge intensity everton deserve that one elite golfie stepped up to that kick and i did love richarson china's plan by demanding the ball but guilty would not be denied slaughtering the penalty. They know. Look dick bobby for me. Sat down mandy first goal in seventeen appearances twenty two minutes in. I didn't even care that early. It was just nice to feel happiness even for a flea emotion. Then i realized horror we had some precious now to lose an eye on the started crap myself little picky couple of great saves one fingertips off the post incredible but i prepared for the onslaught. All those new signings. All over the failed to chelsea sandwich of the ball a lot running not law thinking no creativity. I will say. Thought reese james. I mean skinning everton his will go can also just plays with such intelligence but a dreaded more than thing the inevitable zuma gold dave. I thought we'd programmed to score against us. I did revel in that battle every meena through a handsome battle you will not see but in the final third you just couldn't create. Yeah well knowing us. Once again forced wide so forced into that. Sort of two thirds. Cross the from reese james or chill well on the cross from considerably vertical and horizontal of the area and evident very could in the air. You know you've got to hand it to michael keane perry miester and the ford who come back and play pretty aggressively in the center. And that's not the way you're going to beat them and suddenly and this is one of my asterisks about chelsea you know they looked very one dimensional in attack certainly apart from high vets. It's not really working for the other. German for team overnight right now as i touched doesn't look right to be intricate and really wanted to see chelsea do. This game is forced meaner and keen who are not blessed with incredible pace. You really wanted the ball to go over the top and for them to deal with verners pace and chill wills pace against them but never really happened for lampard and that way we just continue to just try the same thing the same thing the same thing again the intricate passing on the edge of the area that two-thirds ball into the box that was not at away constantly and really chelsea didn't force that many chances. When we did we did it from set-pieces hit the woodwork. A few times there was that mistake from pickford and second half and almost moment from mason mount quick thinking from him but really i think we have through three moments. Where turned to my kids and ask. Did we survive jordan pickford contractually obliged cock-up only firm to do another one with a minute. I mean dot game. There was a part of the game where it almost became as openness my bowels and it was shock are kept being bracing myself for the darkness for the failure that makes amount free kick flat footing though picky. You start the woodwork. Tries billy gilmour trotted. Dave dude worked and the semi. We looks even younger younger enjoyed. I enjoy kid by age. Play chelsea dot bat line with the quran charging allen smelling and fronted a magnificent. We can't grafton jordan pickford said i mean amazing chelsea didn't have so much as sean goal second-half which is remarkable. Because this was evident bill. They had shot on post. We were resilient. I mean moves god. Love is such a lucky dip of apply a three three times. He will get the ball to first. He'll just trip over the second simply dribble out of bounds. And just when you like. Oh my god the third time. Don't pass ahead. He'll just beat seven. Men was great. Raj i love. Everyone who live avidsson with and i thought this was a great everton performance on free tantamount heart rich ritual. Let's define yourself. Maybe i mean he's just he is not looking to play football. No looking to score goals. It's like saturday night out in liverpool. The he's who wants me it was it was. It was a remarkable. I mean the seconds. Ticking away so slowly. The game felt stuck on sixty five minutes like forever but ultimately a first feet for chelsea in eighteen games once more the primarily top slot within touching distance for super frank. But not to bay. And here's the worry. For chelsea fans daniel story rate something fascinating. He said chelsea played seventy games against clubs currently in the bottom half. They've won six drew more on scored over three goals per game. But against top off teams and yes shocking. Everton on one of them. They've drew three and lost two of their five and only school total three times. All in a three three against southampton taught them everton. United and liverpool chelsea fell to school and had just ten shots on target in total. What you make them apples david. Also they've played in champions league can they've played very well in the champion's league you'd have to say and they've played a lot of games and i think there is. I'm not going to make this as an excuse because this is what you do. When you're a top team you play in europe midweek last weekends. You've had europa league years. That's been you know that's been difficult for you. But chelsea played like third more games than everton and liverpool and tottenham and you saw a lot of these teams playing in europe including united very dull game against city and a lot of these teams are tiring and they're getting ready for a very very very busy time in the fixture list. Yes i think. Chelsea have actually had some good moments against top teams but they haven't put the ball in the back of the net but they've scored lots of goals and the stats. Don't lie and on the whole you look at a you look primarily table at the end of the season and the goal difference is pretty much where it ranks from top. To bottom and chelsea's goal difference is still very impressive this season. Look you don't have to in order to win a game in the pre leak. You don't have to have one team that plays exceptionally well a one team that plays absolutely objectively. Sometimes one team plays really well. Another team plays pretty well but doesn't win. Chelsea actually played pretty well. Yes they didn't have. That's moments of magic. That would have given them a goal. But look we've spoken so many times about chelsea when they haven't played well and they've got to resolve. This was a time when they played okay and they didn't get a result. But i think it takes away from everton if you say chelsea were horrible. Chelsea one horrible. This was a much better performance for chelsea. Lassie's when you beat us was it three. One at home duncan ferguson. Last game but it was. Everton was superb that chelsea a horrible chelsea one horrible at. That's how good everton were chelsea came possess the ball. Pass it around. You know created some chances. not enough. didn't make them everton fought really hard. They were difficult to break down. They got into the passing lanes on the edge of the box. They defended resolutely. They defended from set pieces. Chelsea have been extraordinarily good. They defended from set pieces very well. And i think evident deserve a lot of credit. This was more fight then. I thought this team had in them. At this point of the season and i think fans being back is going to be. It's going to favor. Certain clubs more than others. And i would say that everton is one of those clubs where it favors the it favors them and particularly that ground goodison. Two thousand fans can fill that place. Almost i mean. I don't mean in terms i know it takes much more people but in terms of the atmosphere with how close the standards of the field the fighting pits of marine from everton perspective. I loved everything about this performance. And i agree with the was a lot of fight tenacity resilience and an understanding the most at their best. This is the most adverts understanding of all the collective camby has to be much more than the individual. These are all values. I love both in football and in real life. So the fucking tuffey's fellow everton fans we have suffered in a new crew way to see with such wonder you know all of your email boxes are back filled with with messages from fellow. Fans been a everton. This this is your and then suddenly just plunging into allegheny and to win again in the style. We love buffet. Joy and relief jordan. Pickford talked about the difference. The fans made and you're right to watch them at the end of the game for me toward jefferson fans. Hugging parents and kids made my heart with joy as did the clean sheet and the big three points. We are back above aston villa in kazoo title race. Classic though is proper everton to win a game and just like fig tree eight spurs on the first day of the season realized horror perhaps. The biggest winners will liverpool. But i think if you can continue to play with this kind of intensity. I think that you'll see them. Climb back up and be take place where they really should be as club raj and you know fighting for that fifth. Sixth seventh place. You know knocking on the door of the champions league places love you. Whoops love you kill fate. Who wants to fight rich hours okay. let's move on. You mentioned liverpool. Fulham one liverpool one if you weaken couldn't get any better roads the defending champs struggle to an point at turtleneck. Plaid scott parker's west london relegation-zone key party after bussing opening. The cottages took the lead on twenty five minutes. When bobby de cordova read lashed one past. Allison well he put his places through that one roach homeside held onto the lead until the seventy nine th minute. When referee andrew marriner awarded liverpool a penalty after jiwen albums freekick hit cameras. Hand in the fulham wall. Most saleh drove it. Hard and low. Past alfonse ariola to salvage a point for liverpool full and friends returns at craven cottage to see their team back in the premier league for the first time and who rolled into town to defending champions or the fending champions in name yet. Another big injury for clubs depleted windows before kick-off diego yata that news. Send the nasdaq crashing. Our of a knee injury sustained against mitchell and his absence for up to two months. And scott parker signalled his intent and he wanted the season moment by ditching. The tie clip thing and going full on roll neck and electric blue blazer bowl move to this team followed suit and then he's got this whole new stein. Eleven since opening day and the mobile front three zero at the mole. Lukman i'm bobby. Dacuda davor rebelled in the opportunity to just half ago at liverpool early on they ran about pipeline boldly. There were a little bluntly lukman delighting in his ability to run at trent alexander impunity and the opening go from could they read slap from the left. Lash past a stunned said liverpool asleep on akkad. Because you look and you took the european scheduled david ruin the schedule liverpool of enjoyed which is only gonna get worse over the holiday period is how is this just wearing them down well. It is a more condensed european schedule than it has been impeached as they've literally played every single wednesday plus the international break of course all of their planes national team. Nearly every play in the premier league. Is there to be honest. So yeah i won't down. Although i think the klopp knows taken a good bit of stick as he should have done after taking on the media last week that he then started a bunch of his first eleven choices including diego. Diego's to m mohammed saleh mid week in a meaningless game in the champions league and one of them you know came out of it with an injury. That's going to take him out for weeks. So you feel that would that squatty could arrested them. I understand that he doesn't want to that. He wants to bed and his young players with more experienced players. But then don't take on the media so anyway my rant over every team playing in europe does guest and that's before we entered the domestic holiday football period. I do believe the premier league title is going to require the lowest points hole in modern period. Sheffield it's run from worst. I going to be amazing. O'clock bellowed on the sideline. There were shouting there was chest thumping but to no avail his team. Cappelli manufacturers sandwiches in the box in that first thirty minutes at eighty f one thousand nine tweeted us. Yup twelve games into the season and these teams are approaching creed balboa status around forty and second half credit liverpool ten possession. A rimless fulham so much more defensively solid than they were in the first five games ariola magnificent when called upon was so impressed with the mentality organization. That were but i a great end. Dog declared this copy fulham's third win in five. Liverpool struck really really harsh on full on this on albums free strike in the wall hidden cameras which raised in the way. It should be when you jump up. All detachable arms david the future football. I don't know nowhere near the arms literally going to have to be classed can bring duct tape to the game and like hips. Get your official fulham straightjacket. That'd be amazing. Defenders instructs vegas comes in long sleeve even straightjacket. You could actually see that man. United third chirping good-looking straightjacket love with that shirt. Made the more. I watch it. The more i just fall in love with the psychedelic psychotropic nutso shirts. But that was a tough one. Andrew marriner you are dark in the return of the ancient. Mariner sal a spot the ball through the goalkeeper crushing for fulham. I'm not saying liverpool given a lifeline. But in your language they did phone a friend. Yeah they definitely did. Look i think once again this was let's not take too much away from fulham by talking about livable. Plane dreadfully. in this game fulham sort of boston. I loved seeing the confidence of these players. And i'm so happy for scott parker to see it starting to turn around for him. Even though with this point they and burnley's win full back in the relegation zone but it was just a fantastic performance in fulham and so why continues to say best league in the world. The fact that fulham could get that point from the defending champions is just more than a little impressive. I mean defending champions. Who told them hotspur visit on wednesday way for with a win now in five away league outings. But you're right. Last word should be fulham's enormous performance hard work day she's fearless and though the funds affiliate should have taken all three points. This is a major and to do it on the day. In which the club. The tragically young pulsing age forty five of papper boop diop their former senegalese store a giant who was nicknamed the wardrobe. The pre-game ceremony.

By the time this pods over much other beating doordarshan talking about this game. Raj man united nell manchester city nil. We've talked about some poor games many blazers before but this is like an all world game. A humdrum manchester derby ended in a goalless draw for just the fifth. Time in forty-seven primarily meetings. Both sides wasted a handful of chances and in the end the only winner was tied legs and tepid tactics. Not the game we wanted but the game. We deserved or up to a one point above city in ninth. Oh the my pillow infomercials manchester. O you compensation for on the other day in the pillow industry. Oh my oh. This is the worst manchester doorway the modern period. What why won't could be like this. And it was. The only think is between ashlee simpson. And the insane clown posse luke shaw proper gigolo. But you know it'd just wobbling in off the latest doom-laden devastation. Defeat and exiting the champions. The thank you say you run them ragged with no tactics and coaching dooming to another night of darkness. A manchester united's bottom line. we've another. oh you rupa. League size in net funds shocked him. Praying ahead to this one that despite the fact this is the fascinating thing about united four wins on the spin but the narrative feel suitablity. Bleak reality are sending. Why is that this dislocation and it's really because it's not about result to resolve is just like why is being built permanently in terms of structure vision strategy if anything when you think about it same for awesome to some degree. Ceramics dominance billy bengals made this believe all united need to succeed. Is the right manager but football now. A game a systems structure and organization. And one man one ferguson or warm vangere. They can run a modern footballing organization so into this one the most crucial game in ten years since most crucial game in all these tenure and it become a shock selection. Were you surprised to see pct agai. You'd already made it clear to agent today. Didn't want to be that but was into that. Starting eleven double pm the optics roads don't look very good. An i think is the country teammate. Very clear that it's very tough to sort of go into addressing integrity to play for the shirt and then you've got one of them pretty notably sitting there looking rather uncomfortable thinking. I don't even want to be in this shirt and everybody knows that he doesn't want to be in that shirt so the optics don't look good. We don't know everything that's going on behind the scenes we don't know if this is just the renting of poppas agent. Let's give him the benefit of the doubt. I think after the game pogba talked about that the effort he will always give the shirt but it was. It was odd based on everything. Going on at that club didn't even play in his preferred position which is laughing on the bench on the failed. He was on the left flank bruno pulling strings in number ten green on the right and the whole thing was every to watch the game was scrappy. Ball try to press them but both teams are just sluggish in possession. Light years away from that attack attack attack self-image fails football not in the way you normally talk about city in united europe but really because neither side had much to fear from the other and the net affect was was an extremely bad game of football. David it's hard to describe how bad it was. The only thing that did have is that it had very good defending but the very good defending from both teams just led to it being an even worse game football because there were no mistakes. There were no no howlers and never know spaces that the opposing attack could dominate mentally. Seemed like one of those games that neither team wanted to lose rather than south to win which is very united twenty twenty embiid games which is now very united but this is the opposite of how we've come to think about pep city before law season. I mean this is a team that i've averaged one hundred one goals over the last three campaigns but found the back of the net. Just seventeen times so far in this city before this stealth primarily contender city back. But we're as sixty one point zero. I would have tried to knock it out. The game in the opening twenty minutes would just shock all this is like just like schlock boring comparison. No kun esguerra. They manage to shots on goal in ninety minutes. And it's not just a problem of finishing david be creating problems. Kdp a couple of exquisite balls in this one but you look at him and his body language when city move after city moved breaks down so frustrated. But he can't do it alone. Phil foden dave disappear below the and once again. We've talked a little about this. You know obviously. His team tied from playing all these fixtures. From playing midweek and champions league he makes one of his three substitutions and man united make one substitution. And so just so. Many talented players on the bench foden sitting on the bench wonder what he's even thinking. Yeah i mean make l. delaney wrote the seven football who believe pap is playing a rupa debut season emphasizing load management. Keeping a squad as fresh as possible. Very second half charge when everyone else's ground down by pandemic football's fixture congestion. But i just saw a team. Who missed ya david. Silva phone company and cuna esguerra shadowing of that quality. And for you know it. I guess you could say winning a reality. The only brought into a little too much calling it the best performance of the him against which includes a couple of games. You one last season. Bonnie rene brilliantly wrote the greatest achievement of the socio era so far has been extending the solskjaer. Your job hundred games move any stage suggesting permanent. Astonishing david yeah. It is both teams matched each other with possession pretty much matched each other with shots match each other. We passes matched each other and accuracy and thousand much sort of you know down the line if the stat sheet but it just fought. This was i wanted this ninety minutes back. Raj and injury-time and halftime actually the whole experience summed up best by gop at thirty-three who tweeted us. This game is why. The smiths existed asmal mill. Burnley one mighty burnley claimed their first flight victory over arsenal since get this september. Nine thousand nine hundred seventy four gaining a valuable three points in what might prove to be a relegation. Six points come may arsenal dominated early doors. I'm just joking. Fancy going down asked dominated early doors and the match was one way traffic until the fifty six minute when granite jacker was sent off for a ridiculous attempt to tokyo ashley westwood. What it was ridiculous. 'cause he didn't really choke it out. You just don't put your hands there in the seventy third minute. It was westwood. Who swung corner that rebounded of oba's head and in handing burnley of the irony of that handing burnley only their second win of the season for arsenal. It's copy and paste from last week stuck in fifteenth winless in four home just ten goals scored in twelve matches and not looking like correcting course anytime soon the din a revolution at the emirates reaching its familiar fever pitch could a weekend in which one little team after another at risen up ignored the form book and taken the fight to that baker stronger more accomplished dependency will more. Oh you can do it. Also but to be honest they kind of boil on themselves with a squad selection the so much great young talent that club not just and koetter maitland. Niles will can young american eligible striking sensation fuller in bala to keep trusting veteran players. You've let him down williams jacket chief amongst them when playing phil enjoyable no matter their performance are wrought sets in the roy. They'd right actually couldn't believe how many chances arsenal actually had to school but it was just how badly they failed those attempts and how their body language of those players how poor it looks the entire time and dissenting. Those two thousand fans are arsenal brewing. Their own team leaving early after they haven't been able to go to see a game all year and then leaving early into the second half jacker world peace when beserk malet. China strangle westwood vote. We've talked about so many arsenal problems. I mean so many ad nauseam at this point but at a new one though lack of discipline in that side in twenty twenty what happened. How do you even understand it. Well it's not new. And we've seen greenwich aca lack discipline before most notably directed at his own fans roach. But he's been sent off before we had moments of madness. This was this was ridiculous at burnley. A very physical side they get they get in your grill. They they're very physical they know you and he just seemed entirely wound up and he was already boiling with intensity. The shame is also started. The second-half much better. They would looking bright after the break and this just grounded to a whole. It wasn't a real attempt to choke him out. He just likes handbags outside a on a friday night in awful english town. He just like raised his hands to to the burning throat and actually westwood. It was just horrible to say l. Nanny could have gone to was lucky. After smacking tarkovsky in the face it was even worse. Should have been right card. And the penalty big cosmic justice set in from the ensuing corner who stepped up to score his first big boy girl in forever young lauding smalley into his own net. O'byrne now only scoring goals is to poetically painful. I believe even the most masochistic arsenal fan too bad day. Various trenching even their own goals from open play roach. It's just. It's just really so sad. And i just felt for him after that you could see in the replay am just holding his head in his hands and just feeling lousy did did appreciate this tweet from p. p. to gouda who wrote to us and said the sad thing is we are still funds just experience happiness as jacker red court and belarusian also suspended next game then obama and goes and cockpit up with the own goal affeldt for arsenal fans afford for alter who should say looks terrible. Yeah on the sideline gone haunted the bags under his eyes. I understand this pain day. But how much is it him. And how much is it. The play is full. Where would you approach blink. Well and also you know the the sort of the team assembly behind the scenes. I mean a lot of chelsea fans citing the own. We'd have give great credit to the service that william provided to chelsea football club over several seasons definitely. Getting past his sell by date was like a weekend. We count starter in the primarily. He wasn't that a chelsea anymore. The assembly of the team the Continuing problems that they have in in the heart of their defence defending set pieces. You know another goal from a set-piece it's tough to say tetter. They've certainly not giving him the former's they're certainly not fighting for their manager. I remember that awful season that chelsea had when chelsea finished tenth that led to marino getting fired certainly those players who had won the championship season before had tuned him out. And you get a little bit the same sense watching this astle team that they've tuned him out a couple of awesome spreading interior pinpointing the expanded role Took on in september as the turning point when he was promoted from head coach to manager new responsibilities around that time the lack of focus the change in his bay seems to tie together to this plunging almost so it was impossible to believe it was just four months ago. There was a team that when the fa cup and everything fell unbelievable man city and chelsea to win the fa cup beat good teams playing. Great football i was working on. What genus one. I jay dubb's in the we were watching. Burnley be aweso and watching the forthcoming vange special and on one screen. We had onery perez. Patrick vieira on the other just jack. Going ballistic over in own goals even when we did the wayne rooney edit the contrast there with united under louis angle and david moyes and marina was not this stark. And it's crazy after the game. Are you scratching your head as to what you tetter said. Every day we should say huge win for burleigh first overall since nineteen seventy four. They were organized disciplined which they needed on this day against this opponent heartbreaking to watch all these awesome fancy waited all this time to watch the team. They love only two walkout early london today back into tier three which means no fans will be allowed to go to games for the forthcoming the math. To wait some time before they can see their boys again at b d f. You saw ninety tweeted us. We must kill gonna sorace again as penance for us. No evidence chelsea manchester city now eight. But it's not bad throws david. Did you see the incredible video that we for vintage regionals leisure-wear line. I didn't see that this is a chain if you didn't say it's three minutes. Video set designs mesmerizing song. Under your spell features. Vivian medina and danielle van. The don't pierra maker. Obama young thomas party bellary. It's the best thing. Many people said to the club happened to the club. Intervengo was fire but they put this video. It's unbelievable the clothing is unbelievable. The style of the video is just outside the watching. You're like wow. this is split. The incredible and then equally incredible the comments and the club's post they are just true barometers of whereas the lower right now unless supporters is one person wrote glut. We've been trying to be a football club. And the just become a retro brand platform and the other one. Another one said and the championship be absolutely powerless against vibes essay. The funds i feel for them always top of the table in my hall whenever you have a club where the funds care about results so much more than the place to stelter there is. There is trouble hoops on the horizon. Next weekend everton aka the no. I think you're going to be okay. Crystal palace one tottenham won a hurricane artillery strike bamboozled the center quieter handing spurs a first half lead that they carry it all the way to the first minute with young as a standing over a free kick. The ball wound up loose in the box. Fantastic delivery by the way allowing jeffrey to shoop it. In earning deserving point for my friend with benefits crystal palace spurs level on points with liverpool. Still top on goal difference. Wild one energetic tussle spurs just over palace in the first half quieter. Cluster of fine saves amazing. Yeah and then punt by hurricane long-range knuckleball public cloud based blazey prematch. Research told them now. Hurricane is just a penalty and tapping merchant. Must've been amazing. Spurs fans 'cause hurricane scored and alex. Morgan scored almost the same second. Just peak tottenham joy. Second half dave david spurs couldn't keep hold the your palace just marina. Just don't my back. Line is unbreachable. move as a and just joyous odds-on such positive second half performance by the appellate. Yes steve parrish. Who owns the team. One of the co owners of the team will always talk about second half at selhurst park and how difficult it is when palace playing that way towards that stand style. Yeah and it's just. The wind is little bit difficult. It's a delight becomes difficult and palace always seem them with once again another team. That benefited from having two thousand fans in the stadium. I thought just let your everton road. It was amazing when when when they score and slip schlub today. And i go. Spurs conceited. informed didn't seventy five minutes. Just he ran towards the fans in the homes del stand and stopped about a half a foot in front of the to keep his distance and it was it was. It was a genuinely magnificent sight. One gentleman mask on glasses fogged up. Couldn't see a thing doesn't matter just that gentleman and we put him on our instagram captured. Just feeling of being so blessed to be there in person and experience emotions and make you feel alive. Amazing for police bull from essay was so good. And just you know it was willed and over the line by jeffery so fantastic point for palace another one of these big teams that have been playing a lot in europe struggling struggling this weekend roach. But i think tottenham. They've just got to chalk that one up marina. The face on the sideline is a face. Like if you have when the ends the caption you've been molyneaux. For all the second half is undone by an equalizer and drastic time dressing measures he had flung fling on delhi mostly so said he could blame him. It was all your fault deli. Made an amazing with first contribution to the game was an amazing tackle. Also amazing though. We should say steve mahamne really didn't say on marinas into so it didn't happen but magical saves down the stretch. Those frosted tips looking like freddie prince. Genius psychic public played by matthew lillard. But that was two huge points drops to me renews love of the one nil grinding win and did them. They're just the lack of ambition. They showed in that second half came back right by them. Great the worst time. I'm with liverpool and lester coming. Well played primarily scriptwriters played. We've got a brace ourselves for some great insta post. For not loss. Portuguese pool brother david talking of leicester. They beat brighton. And hove albion three nil. They threw themselves back into the mix at the top of the table into the mix with a comprehensive thumping thumping of the seagulls. A double from jack greenish light. James madison broadside up to third one point of livable spurs despite encouraging performances brighton. Have just one winning five and sit in sixteenth place. Isn't that is my least favorite football phrase. Commentators us always. The co comes physio into the mixer pushing to make saw visit the airport your fizzy. I hate bow. Say physi- across the box into the mic. Lester played their greatest hits to win this woman. Movies madison t move go var define close up finish individual brilliance from a said. Just james also magnificent all the way three mile about lester who will have drawn strength from liverpool and spurs dropping point massive injury list. But they're still in after a blip in the stream season in which the top ten separated by points they are at the arrowhead of the peleton in third place which the broad you'll love with everton taught them and united ahead or as he calls it. An easy peasy. Nine point lead united one west ham to davig moya's side continue their march towards a european tour taking down leads despite a sixth minute. Penalty tucked away by mattis click. Thomas check leveled the score in the twenty fifth minute. An angelo headed home from an ac three sixty cross leads undone by ten pieces yet again. Roger to see west ham retain sixth-place and leads still down in fourteenth. What a way to start the weekend. Be elsa i see scottish. English future defensive made kelvin phillips acquainting. Lund's are the future defensive. Made declan right. Wow and west ham called the in both battles conceding. I but finding a way back into the game to earn their first win at leeds since nineteen fifty four for all bravado. Lead can't seem to defend set pieces and free second week in the run. They took a lead. Fatigued couldn't hold onto a west ham repelled their frenzied attempts and deservedly the points based on their second half performance huge respect. I say seriously for david. Moyes whose team recently exposed leads vulnerability at the back line. Second half twenty points and six place david. He was revamped his image and he's not even needed an instagram account to do old school. David west ham season. Dvd cold how mu zico a groove back southampton three sheffield united mill. Fanta turned to saint. Mary's for a comfortable affair on sappho sing. This side put three pasta. Drift sheffield united who themselves mustered only three shots. Zero on target share. Adams opened the scoring in the thirty. Four th minute and second strikes. Stuart armstrong and nathan redmond put it comfortably out of reach. Southampton are in a remarkable but deserve fourth-place united in an unremarkable but very deserved it twentieth makes mahar rate their sheffield free. Full the blades. Fourteen of their last. Fifteen games scored just five goals all season aproval statistic new team since nine thirty is taking one point fewer fanatic opening twelve matches in a top fly english league season. So at least they've got some solace in relegation that the blades have their name into the record books a take no pleasure from this demise. Sheffield a living proof that form and birds and locker room. Confidence can be that one minute. They've gone holy gone. The next wolves snail aston villa one dean. Smith's five hundred career. Game as a manager is overshadowed by the alpha deem mike tranmere greatest celebrity doled out more cards than both teams produce shots on target whistling a season high thirty eight fouls showing two red cards and calling nine hundred fifth minute penalty for aston villa anwar. Al put it pass re patrizio allowing the villa to walk away with their sixth win on the road. Out of seven games in all competitions thanks to the fifth year in a referee's uniform the west midlands darby fiery wolves miss the robust dependable keleti conga calf. Thunders wral jimenez up top get well soon row great to see him back at the training ground loss week arsenal gift emmy martinez also magnificent in. Go for the villa. But the real star of the game. As you've said dave who's walled. Mike dean a phrase who finished with the bill saying the real star of the movie was meryl streep eleven yellow cards to reds a man of the match performance wrist strength training regimen and just the risk a gold medal on the nest the second booking of the game that mattie cash was the three thousand yellow car the referees career and when you read that does make you ask the simple question. What am i doing with my life. Might giving up three thousand. Yeah because but he didn't blink a whipping him out men. They'll think he. I think he was a bit short. That the game was installed thousand nine thousand. He was like shocked that they didn't stop the game and gave him like a mid game kind of gift for hitting the ball but once they didn't and he realized that he blessed. It doesn't mean anything to me and he just kept on going. There was there was a sea near the end of the game. Where four players to meet. So i we're having a bit of a full. The pitch a mike. Danger stood there with his arms behind his back watching with a smirk cards at the red. They fit like bill. Murray and rushmore tide of his jock. Sons ronnie and donnie and that victory exploits and it was perfect. How can you follow that the presentation for me okay. I'm just going to keep doing what in the world to do. You make make sound effects but you do. They're not gonna make a presentation on the people's referee. Let me just keep giving gifts to the will newcastle to west brom. One steve bruce's side returned from that corona virus layoff and despite numerous absences. Got off to a flying start through miggy opener. Thirty seconds into the match. Roj west brom rallied back through a fiftieth minute. Darnell furlong super strike raj but later on substitute. Dwight gayle grabbed a nice goal of his own. A winner to send the tune into a mixture of giddy. joy and meat sweats. Things not mutually exclusive. In a steve bruce dressing room. By the way cova stricken newcastle scored. Well incredibly early. Two small king mcghie elmer. On two x westrom loonies jacob murphy and dwight gayle combined the latter two eight bulla had a coup grab upon his return from injury and leaving poor slava. I'm village the keith richards of primarily football on the verge of the sack absolutely great ball for murphy as well great performance by newcastle. Nice to see them back and nice to see them.

Fulham the home players ripple to dig deeper play more fearlessly plan results of wonder and charge on because the crowd ruled on every tackle pass and move a reminder.

You're against on wednesday lost on saturday. Let's welcome shall we. Don't just sit low. Lo look ahead to this game. Say let's start off with a athletic perspective xiaowei. What's going wrong with them. They all right. I think we'll go move the wrong with them. In part was that this was likely to happen at some stage. Although perhaps not in quite this way bear mind. They've now dropped many points in twelve days as they had in the inside season up until that point but is in for full-on collapse in all four games. It's one victory to drills the fate as a site. that'd be on such good full. It was fifty four fifty seven points at fifty fifty seven points in the first half the season that it feels like a glass. I think in a way if you look at the results before this games way they were always on edge there again where they were just about coming through very light winner. You've are weiner out of s for example that going behind much more often than previously remember they concedes remedies minute behind in the entire season. That's not happen more often. They're conceding early goals. They gonna seven games in a row conceding so it was the probably some point tip slightly now not into a full blown crisis but certainly into a situation where they were necessarily gonna mean sign that level incredible efficiency in winning games that they had up until fruitful weeks ago and coming up against a chelsea side. Don still unbeaten under to call but very very ordinary against hanson. Yeah just methodical. The hard sites watch chelsea they get. The job done. Didn't against that in the drawer but they were hard. Watch nothing. thomas tickle early on. I think he's testing these players. Think he's testing. Mentality is testing the players and different systems. Put the weekend. He lasted fifteen minutes and took stripe off again so he didn't work took off the ball put about so it's a chelsea sought while you won't you come on west off whereas the where's the attack and fled just very very methodical. Caffeine phoenix can tighten me. I can't imagine be free flowing ends and talking football full three job so don just call chelsea methodical and if you think of you don't feel like hey look at them they're open. They're attacking they're going to commit number full and so therefore if you have an athletic team that has been struggling to get results and you have a team. That is quote unquote methodical. Then yes you're exactly correct. This is not four three. this is set pieces. This is very tied very tactical certainly in the first leg in which is going gonna make it physical from. They have to get back to that. They've lost a little bit of that and they've lost a little bit of attention to details in the game against the weekend. Golda was not scored by motorists early on. There's the ball over the top from set piece attack and said piece of mind on a mis-clearance goes over fifty yards and morales one one situation against like that doesn't happen against atlantic city. But it's been happening more and more often over the last ten days or so they have to clean up those details and clean those details where you're going to find something that is going to be very very difficult to beat with some injuries as well going into this clashes said how do you see them. Saying up to bill. Burr how setup because seemingly has shown signs that he's not entirely convinced about the various options that he's gone now a lotta. This starts the here to put this into perspective for you. Five plaza position. None of them have been thought he convinced. I think should answer will start admitted. Emitted get more from your. But he's feisty small. i think he's got doubts about. You may even have doubts about three months defensive unit with two wing backs or normal four. Maybe one doubts about one of the midfielder. So i think when you look at this this is not clear what out he's starting lineup will be. And that's beyond the fact as you as you've already said that there are plans missing tripura out humidity's big loss of them. Alaska was a very big loss of them as well. So i think i think he's far more limited than he would like don't if i was off two hundred fifty pounds to give me the chelsea sawing. That's a very difficult gases. Well isn't it. it's almost impossible to really really is. I mean sits picking the three throughout that are going madrid. I'm doing the same for chelsea. And that's why is ali said. This is a nil nil. This go down to the detail more or less the same system. You seems to love comedy by. Replace off thomas. Canty alongside rhythm. Marcus alonzo left wing. Back and james reese james right wing tops. Pretty hard team. Team-owner owner off the left jerusalem. The line and i've gone to hook dog because as i said before it took them off in the game. Sorry put him on the something guy and took a buck twenty minutes. I mean since then sets really if things about looks noise on thinking he's gonna tested on these shoot starts in this big game. It's a big coal. But i think that's the right way to get the player dot side again if he puts him off after twenty minutes time. Now hey right school o'reilly this enthralling yup tactical bat all know them. Markazi was as great one. One one one say yeah. I caught one one as well as i say. I do think that let's go more vulnerable than you would not anticipate and being so. I don't think they'll keep a clean sheet one don. I'm going to go one nil. Athletic madrid think they get the job done but make it four and make tixx. Meanwhile of course another league team in action this week. Real madrid taking on atalanta. And i'll tell you what if you bet in any way at the moment because ramage how many players take a look at the list of injuries. Isn't it dealing with garrity. Premed amazon's i'm also calvin valverde rather ligo thala on our own out every one of them out for wednesday's game against atalanta point something safe release. There's a couple of absentees particularly significant. Nobody you people talk about the captain he significant by spends them all this one that really stands out monks in because while rule setting out play with front they already have a platt who can replace Who can do the things that he does. And you look around roots injury crises the sheer curious because why it hasn't affected too badly of a suspected but it hasn't affected to do starting eleven what has tended to mean. Is you go to the bench and the bench entirely made up team. But they'd be out a strong starting eleven weeks time not east coast crossed. Madrasahs have almost always been available by without bensimon off that puts a big big hole in a forward line which will ready. Doesn't scored goals. So i think the absence events mars is the one that really really strikes. You from that list. You just read out and has out of course on that list. As as being pretty much since he joined ram and trade answering interesting stuff from philippa lewis in an interview with use eight picks up on this alongside name. Our editors the best i've played with. He's mess winning games alone. He didn't run to defend much. Didn't train well in five minutes before games. Playing mario kart in the dressing room he trained them warmed up laces untied so intelligent. One to combine go alone at cisco everything maybe like see. I'm bishen to say. I'll be the world's best because he could be for talent the bass and obviously the reason is relevant. Said is because you take a look at it and said well maybe every takes training more seriously warms up better than he wouldn't be suffering this injury crisis that he is very typical. Isn't it an sunny for me. I mean impressed the press rally and on. It's easier to to judge this. Because i don't know what extent that kind of mentality impacts upon wherever you get injured on Obscene adult sports science experts. So so know how much of a role they had where that kind of character ready impacts point but sunny pretty striking and obviously in the midst of that is is. Is nick straw. Ryuji of has all talents as a site. Applying that to what's happened around with jada. I think he's quite difficult by lots of here from the from the two guys. He played the game of professional level. That's say those janssen knowlton ollie's personal bests on rainbow wrote but instead focusing in has out in the injuries and is a big deal. It is a big deal. And i think the biggest thing from the coda there is what philippi louis and says that. He lacks vm vision. I can throw away all the other stuff that he said but that one that parting with these he likes the ambition to be the best that drive that we talk about cristiano renaldo every time that we mentioned him as a player. You don't have that drive. You can be a talented s you want. But then there's going to be a limit there's gonna be at ceiling to how far that talent can take you. And what even has his finding out. Is that talent and loan is not gonna sort you out as you get older. There is a moment in which professional you have to be a professional. I you have the talent you put those things together. You put that drag together now. You can at some point. Try to be the best but when you don't have the drive when you don't have the ambition you yourself and that's the part that would be most frustrating for me if i were a fan of eden has that you yourself have put a ceiling lower to your career than what he could have been that what he should have been. That is something that even has some whenever he gets older and he sitting back and it's looking by his career. That's the one thing that i think he's gonna regret domino's him it trade. You brazilian run outta. Wouldn't train with any sort of gusts. Lewis one running laps but then go on the pitch on matchday bang and turn it on. So are we reading too much into the fact that maybe has odd. Isn't the best train or like eileen says. Psychologically is he got issues because he's not fulfilling his ambition here. That was the different era. donna. I think what what e- nowadays is a very casual plan. He plays the game on speed and his own so a tempo. He's always been casual when he was fighting england's on never had the feeling it could be the very best for what how he does and lives these lifestyle off the pitch and just referring to the quotes. There i take from that. Is these being sloppy in his warm-ups on espn sloppy. With the time that you're spending before games that tells me he's also any diet and what it does away from the bitch. You can't just eat what you like. You can't just not do stretches you conscious rock up and play for not real madrid on bay. The very best. i mean. it's tough enough when you're playing for a big club. That is one of the very big in the world and you have to make sure all aspects of your game is on point if you rinaldo what he does away from the pitch and we all know what does he stretches. He trains on a bike before games on a bite late. Close to midnight after games. He's warm and down his routine. I would imagine over. The years is being absolutely spot on and that's why it's still now does as play closed. It's too late for the way he's attitude and the ways lebanese life probably gas naught despite the fact they haven't had as much of the season round madrid still very much in the title race especially after athletic dropping points against levin. Say the weekend. I'll ask you this you taking atletico madrid to win laliga or you taking the field group position but you fill out. The ceiling of the outcrops might be slightly higher. Andy field that ability to turn draws into victories. Need a big collapse. Be call this last four games. The showed just need to not quite get over the line. So i'm taking the wow really say How how. Things change alley. I'm i'm still taking miami. Because they feel is not very good at when we say that feel. We're really talking about what we're talking about. And we said all the absences add that he has and we'll have for some time. So i just don't see that anonymity will be consistent in off or perfect enough over the closing stages of the season. I think maybe we'll hang on but they have made this far more stressful than it needed to be. Meanwhile sit barcelona terrible against. Psg season is falling apart at the seams. It's interesting some the reports that i've seen coming from some journalists suggesting well that's okay. Because they can rebuild now they know where to focus over the summer but they don't have any money. Where is this kind of disillusion theory coming from. I think i'm with you on this. Very striking. operatives inspiring twenty years now at about seeing a season which it which boston been beaten and people call it that it was what we expected. His transitional the young players coming through which is all true true. They knew that it on white together. And it's true that they know that team now and they see free for young pleasure genuinely going to be very good indeed. Nothing nothing at all. I got to be very good. Franken the going to be very good. Petrie kohl's is one that really stands out as fatty before. His injury is interested in the next two that is signing now bear in mind the seven for presidential elections. We got three candidates. Famous talked about the financial difficulties at the club faces. Nothing of talton really quite realistic terms. So far about how you spend a lot of money and then today one of the candidates who forty twelve is the least likely of the free to win and mice as well. I think the the least credible in some of the things he said said look i can get money. I can get a loan. Which means that we go into the market. We've turned and fifty million years worth of Signings possibility flip up now beyond the fact that you still ain't got to persuade those players to come these. Tell them that this is the place. He wants a bay. It's not barring lots of money for players that you couldn't really afford part of what put them in this it. Just it just seems absurd to me honest with you. I just wanted to say that. Not article about this and brought this up last week. Just vanished teams in europe and has not exactly been a great week for them obviously. Psg thrashing barcelona severe losing against the Dortmund's matt harlem. But they're not tearing it up. In the moon's league do not thrashing rail social that. Were win severe in granada. How much is this being picked up in spain. The obvious gulf and ali in athleticism between the spanish sides and those that they're coming up against yes. We picked up the first thing as you say just the basics. Look look at these teams. How good they all. Strong male the sense that is not just about this year as well. Let's not go too far. It's not that long punish teams remarks very very best in europe. The second pot wayside is also true in a sense of analyzing not just the fat little beaten but the way in which the beats in an in particular through the eyes of of holland an mba pays out very dynamic very direct very physical class young players who play into why this punishing is perhaps less used to is also raises there. There are cultural reasons. Over refereeing reasons to be honest as well as the underpinning all of this economic reason and there is a sense of inspiring that is a concern that the financial muscle of the premier league and then free or four of a really big clubs site by munich say are signs remind possibly to some extent event Although i think there is concerned i was probably getting wife and by the way this all filters into something else of course has been a big talking point over the last month or so. This is one of the reasons why suspended popular so so so full heartedly behind the idea of european strictly because they say is there so i e because they see him as otherwise. There's a risk that they get behind said. Thank you very much as always by the way citizen in some detail what we've talking about the fact that the spanish teams are struggling in europe of late.

Today events speak speaker attorney by three goals for sean around with a bracelets mckinney is about getting on the school that you've closed the gap on ac milan's of four points with a game in hand less. Welcome in shall we get multi To reflect on our win about right now is a couple of head has got more than the headers the movement to get open for both To be in the right place at the right time. I think that was the real difference makers I thought you might just. Once they got going they ve. There was much content as a reason. Why are bottom of the table. But because donald showing his worse it's not just about striking the ball and shooting on goal. It's about getting yourself open so you can receive the ball and he does that incredibly well and another gopher weston mckennie yup weston mckennie. I so important to you right now. In the way he makes those runs forward into the back. So it's a bit different today. Because of course they had aaron ramsey of midfield. Normally you would expect. It's ramsey's jobs to think. Western kenya perhaps check himself a little bit in the way he operated. But that's fine. Mr versatility on this on this team and not once again came up very very big and i think increasingly Two guys who really need to start every game for you in midfield benton core and kenny. Do we learn anything. Much more from this game gab. Giving us you mentioned how. Tony all the back line played really well. Yeah i said well. First of all i think you read a whole. This formula was inclusive. Ski wide I think it works but it works a lot better More in their We've said it before we said it. Many times Gives you that threat behind which frees up and make more productive. That said i saw some very good things from from and i think defensively the this defensive partnership of morale. Obviously that's the way forward. And i think it makes everybody around the settled and makes midfield A little more aggressive in the way they they defend because The the back line isn't sitting in front of the goal. And i think it's much closer to where people wants to be. Now you're gonna ask. What can they do it against higher quality opponents. I don't know let's find out that gavin's you're with us. I want to take a look at last. Ceo against the by buying big favorites. Sixty one on lots coming as underdogs four to one. Fine of course missing key players in particular. Thomas muller how much of a chance you give them a decent chance. I mean look You saw at the weekend when thomas muller is out byron don't presses well and the way byron defend is by pressing. You high up the pitch because they're not comfortable further back already. Buying are going to be without a var because they don't trust buna saw that means that Nicholas soula will once again be you know one of the world's biggest or champions the biggest right back. I'm not creates one on ones. And if you look at the players lots of is with the likes of louis korea and milinkevich average you know. They like their chances with those runners from midfield and obviously to go in to go and finish them off no knob either of course for buying and so it'll be interesting to see how they react. Psychologically after dropping points against feld and of course getting beaten by frankfurt at the weekend game on as always thank you very much a lot more from gavin the latest addition of the gavin. Joel's podcast which is available now. Comptons download over on the website by all their issues and all their injuries jordan headedness announce according to the liverpool are still amongst the favorites to qualify for the champions league men. Season steve. Nicol donaldson steve. Do you agree whom. I couldn't swell. I'll tell you what it's not useless. Move to go against burke's because normally the i'm trying to figure a way of how they're going to be right because the way i'm thinking they must thank liverpool's front three are going to catch fire. That's the only way they're going to qualify for the champions league next year and nobody but nobody can turn around today and really put the hand on their heart. And that's just only happened because right now regardless of the opposition the front. Three casualties scored against antibody so to have them. Gotham so strongly finds it again. The top four doesn't make any sense to me. I'm afraid don't you shaking your head. Well i've got no idea how the booties liverpool are going to get in the top four when chasing one spot i mean less nine points ahead of liverpool not reading. Lets the renew third nine points away from them. So they're only chasing one spot on the summit cope want nut fourth position and liverpool up banger. A former. I've got no idea how the book is have them five minutes to finish fourth. I suppose the issue is allie. If you look at the other contenders okay west ham. We're expecting them to slip up at some stage chelsea haven't exactly world lie under to go so every other team got their issues as well and that's exactly what did they book is think about chelsea not very highly obviously not not not so not not in a minor in which you would think okay. You know chelsea's going to run what we have seen from chelsea in their thomas civil is ordinary is boring predictable but somewhat effective. I suppose that they're getting results. How long is that going to last unless they start actually playing better and being more dynamic in the attack. So i can see where you you sort of frame it towards loophole and say this is a team i trust but the problem is that the team that they're trusting. It's not the team that is actually on the field right now. The team that they're trusting the team from the past is the team from last season. Is the personality in the energy from you from years. Gone the team of this season. You cannot trust and certainly not that back line and that to me is a key that you're thinking about of what they were six months ago a year ago. It's a much different team. That what they are right now going to stay the common denominator between three teams. You use poker as to the three regardless of whether the playing well or not picking up points right liverpool not picking up points regardless of the plan. That's that's the difference between these three teams that are going for this one spot and show. You can't go for liverpool because regardless of how they play the not getting the point where they'll the two sides a- the only thing i can think is the pook might be looking at the next few fixtures and chelsea's fixtures a horrendous them play west. I'm nick so liverpool defender jordan henderson to noah get not done. The jamaa love apu played against rate. No i'm just trying to think of why. The bookies have gotten favorites. And i'm thinking well obviously western next stop so my liverpool sheffield united and as i said chelsea fixes that next four or five or horrendous but loophole discovered getting their job done got no confidence in liverpool. Now going on three or four games unbeaten. That's i don't see the winds coming from. Meanwhile just to wrap up the premier league you may have missed this films game against sheffield united on a there was some question whether or not should be. I don't see it's ridiculous. I mean jaden bogle goes in a of the goalkeeper. Ariola gets a torchy's ugly touch with his left foot for look how he wipes i mean honestly the first thing that comes to mind when i saw that was jordan. Pickford van dyke tackle. Who's was more or less than same scenario. I mean there was some decisions higher. Mcguire elbowed jamaal lascelles off the ball. You custody shut out a penalty. There was also it's happening in the bony west brom game. But i don commentary on this game and i couldn't believe that. The referee didn't give a penalty. Didn't they don martin. You guys know what. I've got no idea because until aston commentary in real time. What do i think i sold penalty. The only thing not gotten maybe give an out as he gets touch resentful. Wipe jaden bogle in both knees. This is the best angle. So you'll see the left side of ariola touch on the ball but look i called koch. Well how that's be given status is clear and i. I'm shocked don thanks. This is so straightforward. I think he's doing what's the goalkeeper's coming. The goalkeeper was coming out and mix by. Yes he hangs these leg off the ground. The boat the ball he he. That salvageable because vogel's won't arreola going forward rules making sell beg. I really actually had arial call before he got the bowl. Go along with this. I would have said so now. Absolutely no now my theory. You're saying that. I realized just barely hanging his leg. He's got his leg on the needs of the player. I'm a swing through at the knees he just kneecap this berg by the way so good job youtube on ovar. Apparently we've been flying all over. The place won't term. It's exactly the same goodness hanging over time. You can check that out on a youtube channel. We'll be talking about. Tv's infamous mass. Let's talk about a couple of americans abroad show featured in a champions they alley would mean these studio steve casey and with as well. Let's start with gino. Desks me is best night. Obviously against what's your action being catalonia. Truth in in some reaction already about suggestion death zone. It hasn't been a huge reaction in. That hasn't been focused on him. I think in terms of the analysis of the way that he played. I think he's probably seen more as a victim than the guilty party. In this bear in mind this is also not conceding. Goals newark again. You know this is a team that the and german before go adventists. Four by romo by liverpool. This isn't anything new. I think there's a sense as well. It's a junior. This offer. Injury quickly had pk alongside and also come back from an injury. Perhaps a bit quickly. Had it seem the renfrew fall to easily against the team that was more than than was more direct than than had 'em biplane absolutely brilliantly these recurring flaws and these roles ricca from an era. Well before so genius soul though it's true kumons also about focused about concentration about learning process. I don't think for a minute that anyone in custody is pointing the finger at destin saying that's the reason things went wrong against psg however if young player. I can't not look at the court. And i can't look at look at the fact that will keep me to attend sport. Gave me to. It's gotta have a bit of a psychological impact right and if he is objective and he looked himself in the mirror he would know that he should not have been on the field because this was just coming back from injury just like there are. They should not have been on the field. You don't expose this kid who yes maybe a learning experience but the learning experience cannot be accelerate. When you come off an injury and you say hey so did your. I got something for you that it's gonna make you learn real quick here killing bubba company not to tom-tom again. See how you deal with that. And then post-match if your runako then say well this is about focus and concentration and also by the way. He's had some issues with your yes. He's had issues with injuries. You don't put them out there unless you're for certain sure that this is a kid that can compete at that level at that point against this player and i don't think the answer to that was yes at any point against giving him but the point is well case and we've seen this before from rural cohen and his questionable management as only said cow. He's a kid he's been injured. You can give him a pass. As opposed focus and concentration. That was to help things and you would think that a manager that has that much experience within just almost get that players back and say look. I asked him to do a favor for me. I know we've had some injury issues. He being one of them and i needed him to come. Try to help us out when he wasn't quite where he needed to be. And i almost look at that as a manager. Just trying to deflect off of his own decision making and that's and that's tough for a young player. Stave sir you must have had games in which you were just torn apart left right and center. Maybe it's a veteran as well like out here. Responsive thanks ten. You've pretty much my entire career. So i was usually that guy pulled the ball back of the net. I appreciate that. But as a member of a backline or even a goalkeeper for that matter even more so you're really dependent upon the people in front of you. So problems actually happened further up the field breakdown much further than just in the back. Line so really. He's a sitting duck. I don't think it's fair to blame on him. And what we've heard in the media's hasn't been but i don't disagree with the decision of coach to play him because this is extremely valuable experience for this young man that you can grow up. I know this game didn't go very well. And that's the reason it will stick it his mind and he'll reflect upon it and learn from it so this is an experience The coach has given him probably looking forward down this road this season and into the following. Season's coming up that this kid can reflect on learn from and grow on and he'd become even better and if he doesn't play in that game then it's a lesson to learn i. It's been a position that barcelona have struggled to kind of fill. Said if you like if you take a look at the players that have come and gone and is there a subpoena edessa. Someone ronald koeman teen could be someone who could leave early with the coach ronnie lease at the end of the season. I think that is always kind of there. No no and. I think he's going to be that the reason that you've outlined that which is of course it he comes in at some of the the kumon darlie wanted and was very very clear about an also by the way it's probably worth noting. The coon is very very blunt about everything so him saying this about such. That's probably not a huge surprise. It's probably approach. But then the other reason why why. I think that gene desk gets put in that position. Cycle club president. So there's an institutional instability that what the new president wants to do their club with massive financial problems. Dr what they gonna do. Should someone come in on mike and offered experts. Think this is young player. Who's gotta be increments. Words very very good indeed in four or five years time. Maybe someone comes in from the best example of the semester semester last summer who goes to the person playing in the position junior. This now occupies with one of those players that the president had named as being untouchable. He wasn't one of the ones that was going to be pushed out as part of this revolution all of the older plaza to be but he was he was young. He wasn't be pushed out. What happened what happened. Was there was a market in which fascinated couldn't generate any money for any of that blaze and suddenly wolves came in for some at his fourteen million years. That one boston are looking around thinking. We don't get money from anywhere else. We'll take it so there's that element as well. What happens if at some point of a club destined acid. Come to them ambassador. Will we've got the money where we can get it. Meanwhile steak tyler adams of cool styling for live sick in their defeat against that liberal. How would you sum up his performance. Very calm i think Good performance above average performance. I think what separates tyler from aside from other players is at a very young age already. He's playing like an old vet. he's a player. You don't really see on the field very much in common every sense of the way i can say that. He's he doesn't make mistakes reliable and at a very high level already. He gets the job done. Defensively has moments offensively. And i think. His biggest attribute is winning balls in very good areas of the field to to start counter-attacks set his team. I offer chances as well. So he's already in my opinion an extremely valuable player for this club but also moving forward for the us national team boys. Thank you very much. Thank you ali. As well of course by those players we're looking to make an impact once again both teams looking to turn things around in the next leg of those champions league matches next month. Then thank you very much to everyone who is being on stage staging though extra time is next. Tv and on that. We'll be talking. About what stevie up to this weekend welcoming solicitation in extra time. Thank you very much as always feel tweet tally. Marin with me in studio donna. Hutchinson is as stephen nickell. We have had so many questions about one. Subject take on. That is s-. Tv's choice of mosque the war the weekend while sound with in case you haven't seen it We have a picture of the mosque of said mosque off. Already take this. What's the why was not the only mall ski. Had no idea because into cow. We know right and driving along and i'm two minutes from the place of police called fleets. We will go to a thought or mosques note. There was a a mwana one hanging on the mirror on nor to go everywhere in the car. Couldn't fight in. And then when i thought you know what maybe the next one in the place. I'll walk in and walk in. Put me onto me jacket pocket and of course a pillow. A mosque was nowhere. Can walk to put it bite me poking because he thought they get a little. Give me one and she. She went no on another one. Who would go so seriously filled with people looking at me. People walk in fos late two and a half earls and don't think there was one fest and didn't stand out me for five minutes. I was late a felt very cheap. Did you consider wearing inside ounce steaming that would have worked Couldn't because my wife had had own there was lipstick all over to be even losses settling put beloved stake enough beautiful. There you go. It's like the rolling stones. Yes yeah mick mctaggart situation. Besides you make jag. Donates been development to you giving two hundred and fifty pounds to people who are asking for money to get back to ireland. I understand yes. Yes i on friday night. A work with a friend of mine leroy senior and combined with a massive smile on his face at work what you laugh at and he went up just a service station and someone is asked for two hundred pounds to get to hollyhead christian. Leroy just get out so suggesting. Maybe it's a it's a scam around the The gas stations. I i think just about social think is scam adult. You did a good thing. You're right yes. What are the chances that would have given the two hundred. And i have a real nice man for you. I'll give them children fifty us pin number okay alley kumon always talks about being a team in transition but he never acts like that he keeps star starting the same players again and again hooping of the previous humiliation. What are your thoughts on this message from runner cormon over the course of the season has been very inconsistent because he has told us. Yes the team entrance session. But there's been moments in which barcelona had opportunities opportunity to get back on the title race to make a run and camp sleek and in those moments. The team should not be in transition. Need your best eleven. Whatever that best eleven is out on the field issues. He has never really settled at the. What the betsy leavenworth. Lana has been and so. Therefore we consistency of consistency. Stevie how and look if pochettino takes. Psg to the champions league title win spurs failed to qualify for any european spots will be time for levy to acknowledge that he made a mistake. Think i think probably people would think. Why didn't we tell me to collella as opposed to levy thinking about getting rid of poetry. Tino i mean the truth is taught in we're waffle t left so i had a had every right done but atop the argue when the end it's all about results and certainly the that they weren't getting results in plan well either struggling in the mountain coast lost against monaco at the weekend. Does oslo fail. That one loss at manchester city's victory seems like to get destroyed. It felt like one city to lead. You think this could be five or six but an arsenal and they back in the game into quite well with the game. I'll watch not thoughts. See what they could've scored anytime and then they just thought well geno wet could fit. The back ruben. Diaz was brilliant and they just thought you know what would just conserve energy will beat the one nil and we'll just move onto the next game against gladbach but also will way off it john. What percentage chance on give west hand next season winning the champions league boy. I'll hope goodness i see. Don't give my mom. Maps is not good. But i'm pretty sure i'll be right on that one even a no no see road after salah was compare. It's a messy in training stevie. Who was the best ever player in training that you played with and were they able to replicate it in matches bombs. You can do that. I get published was just him but we did trade and every time. You stepped on the field. Yeah no danger is there any was rubbish and training. Steve good on match days. Paul rossi rarely hanson. If you if you if you want to take what it then you have a look at it to them and train and just go by but visor. I'll tell you what i want for them. Because when it when the whistle blew a seasonal the two of them. So let's what what's for one doesn't always walked for the other for the and was scanning. Don yes i mean we. We had a plan called mike. Marsh steve remember. Everyone's picking a five or mall. She was sensation on a five side. Sixty six seventy seven. But he just couldn't so of. I wouldn't say he couldn't do eleven. B eleven but it just wasn't his sport was this skill wants to pitch. What really big couldn't get around the pitch for us. Technique goes on simone. You'd have a first pick plane of five. Six aside. marshy was incredible. won't touch to touch vision. Everything did you change the question done. Just thought flip it doughnuts. That's okay this is interview with salah in training was just the exception. Which will i know. Chelsea were excellent then took what was marino doing. You can ask that very same question just putting your right now. What are you doing joe. Say because whatever you're doing is not working and it's not only saleh gave him the boy no. Yeah and as i now quite a now. He's become the player he's become now. Obviously maybe at that point. That weren't ready to take the step that they take it down their careers but as a manager. Part of your job is to be able to figure out you know what there's something here. There's something here that. I can exploit something here that i can use something here that we can. We can northern. We can make it grow and he can be useful to us right by the description. Yeah just cut his losses very early on both saleh growing kaku. The list goes on on the players that have gone through justin winning having quite had the performances that he was asking for and then they moved on and done much better careers. This question have the guys ever seen a half time manager talk. Help team bounced back because we imagine the manager always inspiring and teams tv. But does it actually happen that large. Well it depends. Waffen the monitor house to actually talk to you for that particular reason you know. Generally with a good side there might be three games. Maximum of three. Probably a couple where you're just not quite art and then you come on time and you get up and that doesn't off make it different but i would. I would suggest that the more often the monitor your has to do the lesson impact is because it's one of the hill posted a couple of times a year when you get older the second. I don't want this again. Don was our team told us sticks out in your mind. Yeah best one. I've ever stevie stevie late in the game. We drew liverpool drew bolton and the faa fund and paul On the manager turned undecided. So he's like a skating rink. There was live on tv on. It was so dangerous. It was incredible. We would two-nil down two nil down komen cup so the comes down and grim soon. S coming off time on a fired about thirty copes. Everyone said tape hawks. Coffee poops everything was gone. Opened the on every single one of us got absolutely hammered. Off graham sooners on somehow they scored ridiculous on ongul. Nothing grocery school in the camp. We're go back to but it was scandalous salt and sees soobee soft. Tom team told my word. That was something special. Well it also depends on what states over your career. You are writing. If you're a guy who's been around ten years professional and you have heard all sorts of speeches Time free game. What have you and some guy comes in and tries to give you something different or or spend something that in a way in which it fuels a younger guys but the veteran guys sitting by what we think we know. We think you know we stink. Is this cheever stays at that point. That's where i reached that level of does it just not going to work out. We're just no good and whatever you say it's gonna find we're gonna be fired up and we're going to get out there for the truth of the matter is that we don't have to players. We cannot compete with that team. And i think. I said younger guy. You believe. In the yeah. Let's call us guys. We can do this as another guy. You become a little date and you're just kinda go this. This is not going to work at the red teapots and things no. I'll tell going to say you know. Ali shit and i get Tell you what are you should try and be on. The other end of. That actually knew everything. You've just said the team you're actually standing there and you're doing every nikon. Gm wall to help them out and the bucky of rain. Your thank you sell up. -solutely wasting saying why i'm talking about a mass man told this story before but that song by the black guy piece is that it seems like tonight is going to be a good night off and they would play that song in the locker us. Usa they would play this song and anyone in tonight's going to be a good night and i'm sitting in my logger. And i remember thinking do distinctly. I said to myself. I think it's going to be an okay now. The best we can hope for is that okay Steve even maybe just last week. Your halftime team to we. You said there's three things you need to focus on and you've got that was actually before the game against false. I went tomorrow and what was the old one. Oh you go. don't send you. I thought of you sitting in the locker room and manager losing it. we're trying to inspire and you sat. Go and shut up. No set dot looking at old trafford trusted six thousand a game and i was on the bench. Glenn wrote a sesame get warmed up going on six nil down all says no chance south-south what warmed out when wolf down the stretford end and i seen the seat in the main stein that all going to sit in the next twenty minutes gone gracious off time six down poverty team. It was the west of the guys played against in that career. Steve eight moreno. Because i was not the worst. I was the best worst back. No now only because only. Because he's in the middle of the western. A hand wouldn't know the difference between a dive in a challenging.

If you've got guy who we are real brain that could you stand in the middle and you get a couple of a couple of. I'm trying to think of a nice wealthy putter. Love athle- heads the can direct them around then the dynamite telling them you just got one guy just all denies the and so if you've got that guy then you can play three which means you can get. I always stop playing three men. I could get an extra guy forward which is why did But only dead when the guy in the middle league coffee the debris and could organize people around him. I would love to just a pair out of nowhere and set you up with a lie detector stevie because the final question is what did you think of the teenager. Hutchinson as a player.

Monocle 24: The Briefing

35:41 min | 11 months ago

Tuesday 23 June

"You're listening to the briefing. First broadcast the twenty third of June. Twenty twenty on monocle. Twenty four debriefing is brought to you in association with `alliance. As part of the program partnership with audience, we bring you stories that demonstrate his commitment to securing people's lives. After all for one hundred and thirty years all around the globe Alleanza has been working hard to do just stat to give courage to its customers for what's ahead. Because, allience knows how important it is to have a fair partner, your side who provides solid and sustainable solutions. Leon strives to do it right we've passion every day. Stay tuned to the briefing. Dear, exactly how allience does it? An alien for life. Hello and welcome to the briefing. Coming to you live for Monaco's newsroom here in Zurich I'm todd. Rely coming up. We'll have the very latest from Singapore. As the country prepares to hold a general election in the middle of pandemic, also ahead, the president of the ICRC Peter Our will tell us about the challenges facing some of the world's leading nations. I would agree with he would at the present moment neither bilateral diplomacy of states. Nor. Multilateral institutions are well positioned obviously to find at least acceptable approaches. If not, so you should see some of the problems. Plus will also have the very latest for Monaco's editorial team in London and Tokyo, and then a bit later on I'm Nolan Giles Monaco's design editor and I'll be talking about timber revolution in Swiss architecture. You very much all that all that. Right here in the briefing with me. Todd Liberty. And good afternoon for very, Sunny Zurich we start off with some breaking news this morning that Singapore is calling a general election. prime minister lease in Luoyang has decided that it's probably time for the country to go to the polls and we believe we're looking at an election. Dates probably around July tenth, but for more on that. I'm joined by our. James Chamber our Hong Kong Bureau chief. Asia editor as well James Good afternoon or good evening to you. This is something that came across the wires just a little while ago. surprising not surprising, because if we maybe go back to three months, we saw Singapore looking in a way very very bullish, very positive. They were being A. As a nation that really got it right when it came to managing the pandemic, and then, of course we had this. Real Spike in terms of numbers, particularly of course, with with migrant workers in the country which. Could. have been of course a path, and why? This is put on on a on the shelf for awhile, but are. We surprised at the starting point that Singapore be going to pole so soon. We're not surprised that the the I mean it's a coal, an election It knows one Jew by next year, but everybody in this region have been anticipating an early election because of the reasons that you mentioned the full pre coded signal bowl walls doing very well. And they're rooming. Party funding the heads off, wanted to capitalize on that and get. Another large majority when he steps down on hands over to his successor which would be you know if I miss the down? After, the election I mean, it'd be having some outside of the family outside your on you. The founding fathers and so a big big moment. Wanted to make sure that. They had the best possible trump and gets in a huge Georgie of. but as you said. Cozy along of truest Fana and those climates Michigan Singapore was one of the best in a village you can continue, but obviously they outbreak and the migrant community so give him the. Only just came out of its lockdown, lost week or circuit breaking I think the. Bit surprised that they pulled it right now as you mentioned shorts election, an election days be. James on. That'd be a as we know. For for the past decades. yeah elections in Singapore. are Y- not particularly surprising affairs give given a leadership. Do you have any sense? Though as you said, this will be a moment when it when it of course, it moves from of course, the hands of the one of the Founding Fathers League on you and of course Yes, his his offspring as well does it stay in an extended element of the family, or is there any sense of who? WHO MIGHT EMERGE Because obviously Singapore is recognized as having this quite exceptional bureaucracy many many say the country functions the way it does. Because bureaucracy behaves a little bit more like a corporation We know that, of course not just the prime minister but your people who are in senior positions of leadership are almost paid corporate level salaries that that might be equivalent to working with the bank in Singapore any read on on where things might end up in terms of future leadership. While he. Appointed in amongst. I think it won't cost here and break here about who the next prime minister events be I guess. The big question is how well can the opposition to win some seats in the parliament? I mean the. Control the vast majority of seats. It always had a bit of a stranglehold on the full on the opposition is. has being in a bit of a mess. recently the happy for moves to try and get together and combined the smaller issue. into one I'm trying to change. Something similar to what Malaysia. In two thousand eighteen when they got rid of the. Policy that I'd be really since independence but you know looking at the the heavyweights they had on the opposition side in Malaysia. You know people like that are from my house. Yeah, those kind of domes with this in Singapore I think you'll be a huge shop. It's the opposition in Singapore could you know Paul. A handful of seats let alone you know. Take Control. James Chambers Bureau Chief in Hong Kong? we are going to have to leave it there. Listening to the reports that thirteen o six here in Zurich cut when we come back, we'll be talking to our sophie, Grove and funeral. Centre Tokyo. Sort keeping it all in the family here at Monaco Twenty Four James Chambers He heard from just a moment ago in Hong. Kong now time to talk to our senior correspondent, Sophie Grove. WHO's in London, and our Asia Tokyo Bureau Chief Fiona Wilson, who of course, is in the Japanese capital Fiona will start with you. Of course maybe a little, maybe a little bit of a reflection when you when? When you look certainly down to Southeast Asia and and of course Singapore as well. There's a lot of discussion. Japan we were expecting announcement in the coming days that Japan will be looking to open its borders, or at least drop quarantine, potentially for a clutch of other Asian nations that we heard that Singapore is is on that list, and I'm wondering what might be the latest around this because. Japan like many other countries, of course it needs to get back in the game of doing business needs to get back in the business of of global trade and yet very difficult to do. If you're a business person sitting in Los Angeles and you have to sit in a hotel room for two weeks and you've got to Japan. Yeah Hi, Tyler. You're upset. Era I mean the Japanese government a lot of pressure now the European Business Council was saying come on, we signed this big trade agreement that came into effect last year, which did have a big impact on European imports into Japan and they're saying it's really starting to be affected now and actually the Foreign Minister Morteki has just announced that there is going to be a a group of chartered flights going from Japan to Vietnam. The end of this week over the weekend from Japan Vietnam carrying about four hundred and forty business people. And I think this is the first sign of things starting to open up the Japanese travellers you'll business people have had to agree to. Do whatever is required in terms of regulations want to get to Vietnam, but it does show that things are starting to open up their no obviously no noise as a tool about people yet coming into Japan. Although I think you're starting to see more people, saying this is affecting all sorts of areas. It's not just tours and this is business. Universities are saying we need to know for. Searches can come here so I think gradually. We're going to hear more stories like the one. We're just hearing about this. This very sort of this pinhead in a way, the opening into to a new world of travel, but at the moment is justice Japan Vietnam trip. I hear the clattering on the keyboard. I wonder if that's when booking you a ticket on on one of those charter flights, because I can only imagine what that is going to look like, but also as you said, of course, the borders have been closed then suddenly you're you're you're on a flight with yet? People who are running the supply chain for Toyota Sony Uniqlo, and and of course he'd had lots of big other brands when Japan Inc Yo you're you're you know you're going to be on a flight with lots of your competitors? Yeah I mean this. The economy in the world is so interconnected now. This whole situations obviously being very very difficult. Of course, people have found ways around it. You Know Uniqlo. In example we've talked about you know they have the sort of breadth and capability to to really move where they're producing, but you know really now. It's got to the point where I think people are thinking. Come on. We can't go through the whole summer with no sign of anything opening up to say nothing of people in Japan started. Thank you know. I'm talking about foreign residents because this is always the sort of strange situation. Japanese can travel, but we foreign residents can't. So I think that's something that is also going to have to be addressed, which hasn't yet been addressed. So, if Sophie grow in Lonrho senior correspondent, I, good day to second. Listen it's not much of a radically different picture in the UK as well, you have people who want to get in there, but even if you are in. What was your former base quite recently? If you're in Paris, you're still gonNA less of course you miss you, mccollum You'RE GONNA have to be also in quarantined up for for two weeks as well. Andy Murmurs because we're expecting of course, a big announced by the prime minister. This afternoon pub seemed to be top of the agenda the. Quarantine will also be dealt with. Well I think is incredible pressure on the government to lift the currency I mean. Also we've seen a T. T quarantine post from did have one and then just we announced. In, the UK, instead they, they posed Cisco one there with you see that going on that credited back to visit you. Know be is very. To justify exactly how the? How? A rationale behind it. It's just on that so when you. When you look at where the let's say, the forces or the the pressure is right now on the government. Of course, the government is is dealing with with many other things, and part of it is also what has to happen on on the street right now are. Are you surprised how much attention and I know? It's nice weather over there as well. How much attention there is to the pub because it seems to be. The pub is the story that is sort of leading. The way may be in line with also. Are we going to hear something today? from the PM, about of course a relaxing the the physical. Measures. Do we drop from two meters two to one meter in the UK potentially. I said yes. Critical folks on the. Identity of the British nations be. The pub and the. Dog. God. Vision has get back to normal before we re. Sort of normality I understand Paris with credible. Voice from the restaurant scene. Having direct video conferencing avenue speaking directly to McCall. WHO. Reflection of that. It does make you think this cultural load be put on that businesses been others left to go to see. But it would it would mean that. Know some could get got express. It feels like it's dense tissue issue, really Fiona just in Tokyo. Given it. There is of course there's always been a certainly a a strong. Uptake of people using mouse, because it's part of Japanese Japanese culture. This physical distancing issue is that. Is that been a topic? In in Japan, because certainly look photos, etc. Is there any sense of of a two meter rule and people? Japanese love a queue outside of a store and a restaurant as well or is that. Is that a topic? They've not really been looking at in Japan. I mean they have been looking to feel. It's not as much of a topic as I'm hearing saying Lundin. Amendment, if you go into a supermarket, they have the you know the the sticker with the feet on the floor to show you where to stand when you cue up, but generally I feel that may be a problem with masks in some ways, people feel protected. They're standing a bit closer. And I'm noticing is things are opening up? Ueno Zoo announced. It's it's just open today. Disneyland is opening on the first of July huge news here. Obviously, they're restricting the numbers, but they're saying you have to wear masks so masks of absolutely part of the picture here. That is more of a discussion than than this specific distance apart. You're standing from people although I. Mean You know I think that the people are quite cautious and also. If you remember he did say you know this sort of new lifestyle. We have to adopt this new covid nineteen lifestyle. You know we're supposed to eat next sitting side by side rather than facing. That's not really turning out to be the case. I have to say I've I've I've seen many people not sticking to that Funeral or actually just over two sophie before we go I I don't mean to put on the spot, Sophie, but if you had to give points, I, mean somebody's been based in in Paris for us for the past few is now back in the UK you had to Hold up your scorecard for leadership as to where we stand right now math Colin versus missio Johnson What would you? What would you be giving for scores? Well I think the president should receive from enviable from where I'm sitting. I mean just the mobilization over there. It hasn't been perfect, but they had high high-speed trains medical. Teams. Quite a lot of. The reaction with with quicker So I do envy that you know. They just opened their policy Paris, but the end of May, so actually in terms of living through this thing as a family, it must have been punishing in France and here we've been throwing around and having you know quite a lot of does not breezy walk. And so I think they're coming up for it from. Okay well, YOU'RE GONNA. You're dodging scorecard. We'd have to leave it there. Sophie Grove our senior correspondent London Fiona Wilson. Our bureau chief in Tokyo You're listening to the briefing fifteen past the hour here in Zurich. We're back more of our editors right after this. Now before we get to our Nolan, Giles also editor Andrew Tucker going to hear an excerpt from our new strand of the interview series is the chiefs edition and each week I'm joined by a C. Suite leader as they try to navigate are changing world. This week were down the road in Geneva. And it's a turn of Peter Moure. Who is the president of the International Committee of the Red Cross I started by. If he would agree. There is a crisis in diplomacy now. I do believe that whether you call it a crisis of diplomacy, or whether you call it as I would frame it rather as starch underinvestment of diplomacies of countries into finding solutions to some of the intractable problems. I would agree with you that at the present moment night, bilateral diplomacy oh states. Nor multilateral institutions are well positioned obviously to find at least acceptable approaches. If not, so you should to some of the problems. How could you otherwise explain? that. We ought accumulating regions of conflicts and disasters for people over years and decayed which remain unresolved. That's obviously pointing to a difficult than. Of Diplomacy as a profession as diplomacy has an instrument of states in the points. Certainly to some of the flaws in the present international system and I I would say to the opposite that these makes this profession still necessary and important interesting, and that's one of the reasons why we really don't have a recruitment problem at the I. Searcy for a couple of. Mobile's which we recruit each and every year we have stealing the sixteen to eighteen thousand applications worldwide, which allows for a stringent selection, and so there is obviously a generation which is interesting tool, not necessarily to look at maximum profit than salary, but rather look impact and relevance, and an I think we have. Not too difficult. A task to recruit who comes into the institution, so I would agree with with your first suction that we do have a serious problem to the skyrocketing budgets humanitarian organization point to the fact. Conflicts are not resolved and. Very often paper Dover and and they over by humanitarian assistance, and we would be the first ones to recognize that we need more diplomacy, not less than bettering nationally, Egyptian on North less. Walk you also point toys and I would fully agree that we can't have these institution just as institutions among states, the civil society business communities. They are important actors in today's world, they have. least part of the solutions and I have always advocated for more multistakeholder approaches including society at large and the private sector as well into the resolution of some of the intractable problems with which we are dealing. When you point to the private sector, and and of course we know that that funding for research organizations, one organization very much involved in the pandemic, and probably has been in the news more than than any other organization that be the WHO when it comes to funding. What is what does the funding model look like for for the the ICRC? On of course from generous states, one would assume and then obviously from from private sector. What are the parameters of I? Guess also not to go into too much detail because I'm sure it must be in a charter somewhere, but the idea, the ethics and the the barriers to entry around that as well. Well on the one side. We are still to a large extent funded by states. Ninety percent of our budget is. Is States who offer voluntary contributions to the ICRC. Budget and less than ten percent is coming from the private sector distiller, seizable amount of money given billion budget, but the with regard to the ethics I would say what is critic. Of critical importance to us. Our ability to spend money according to. Principles of neutrality and they push alley and based on needs of people, not on political orientation, and so it's less the origin of money, which is the key ethical concern to me, but rather the conditions under which money is coming to our organization. I think this is today one of the critical issues because. States very often link their contribution or want to link their contribution to specific political objectives. Private Sector companies would like to link them to some achievements and interest, also for the private sector, and I think it's a careful navigation we have to do in order to have solid tunnel procedures, which allows us to direct funding towards those who need it most who are most in need in terms of objective needs assessment of I think. That's the big challenge today in a world in which. State and private business look first and foremost that sometimes narrow definitions of interest when they WANNA support, even humanitarian work lot. And, that was Peter. The President of the International Committee of the Red Cross. You can hear the full interview this Friday, at Twenty one hundred Geneva time you're listening to the briefing on monocle twenty four. As part of the programs partnership with Allience we bringing you stories that demonstrate alliances commitment to securing people's lives. After all pylons has been working hard to do just that. To give courage to its customers for what's ahead. Because allience knows how important it is to have a fair partner at your side. Stay tuned to the briefing to hear exactly Allience, does it. An alliens for life. Long. Thirteen, twenty two here in Zurich. You're listening to the briefing with me. Tyler burleigh also joined by our design and architecture. Editor Nolan. Giles, who has been in town for a few days is going to be here for a few more weeks. You'll be hearing more from them. these very microphones known. You've been a bit of a tour. You've had some time to get away from the desk What's the city of Zurich and its surroundings? Delivering for you? You have had a little bit of time on the bicycle riding around checking out the architecture and I've actually been pretty intrigued by the amount of timber buildings have been seeing across the city of Zurich. Typically in the city you know there's a lot of beautiful architecture, but it's concrete zone stealing loss. You know some of the best in the world you got into the countryside and you see these timber chalets there you know or even Tim Kyle Bonds that are as Nice as shall allies. There is a tradition of timber building within Switzerland, but not so much in the cities. But, from from chatting to a few developers, he I spoke to one company called interim, and they are just finding that the the when you're tearing down a building an older building and rebuilding again in a city like Zurich, because the foundations are so good in the ground because of these old buildings, it's actually a lot more cost effective to to do a tim by building potentially loss as long, but you know because. Because you're building in Switzerland, things tend to do las quite a while, so yeah, it was a very nice timber architecture here and you mentioned remers as a developer I think I was sort of on the periphery of that conversation, but they also I think just impressed by the level of of of development and say level the types of architects, their commissioning I think also at the same time. This is a developer. A spin off from a larger group but it's quite curious that you have a developer which is also led by architects. It's not just led by by CFO's Fisher you know you speak to so many great architects and the the thing. They say when they're talking about residential architecture is just. It's so difficult to convince developers to do you know well designed houses for people because it's it's. It's more about money for developers. It ended today. They're trying to maximize the profit every square inch, but you. You know when you have architects leading the company. They want to maximize the quality of life across every square inch, and this is what you're finding with with developed lighter. They're not afraid to put a big balcony on the front of a building, because in my closet, a little bit of extra money, but it's GonNa completely change the lives of the people inside the small apartment. Now I know that at the end of the day yesterday you're on your bicycle tour looking for a frosty one on the. The other side of the lake, but there was you didn't just pictures. of of sort of Nice local brews from Zurich You also found something interesting on the far side like from where we're sitting in safe held for show, and this goes back to this this idea of quality timber architecture, so it's a a pavilion designed by Zad K, B, the Continental Bank here in Zurich, and it's all about sustainability. It was supposed to be completely open this year with with events with. With concerts, but because of the pandemic, they had to postpone the use of it, so they're just going to keep it there for the entire year until next summer, and basically now you can just go along. You can have your frosty on if you like. There's a table tennis table set up, so they've essentially given this pavilion to the public allowing everyone to make the most of it and then next year we're going to see you know even better and bigger rendition of of the architecture and the landscape. There and just before we go you and I've had the benefit of being the first see our July August issue, which is just arrived at our editors will see it in London hopefully talking Andrew Minute, he will, if he has a copy in his hands, already three things that might stand out to you. You just mentioned quality of life it's it's really the theme of the issue, but when you when you go around Zurich, or or maybe it's from the in Munich last week. three things that stand out to you that these cities are doing well that maybe. Might, be missing new. Brisbane my missing it a Londoner or elsewhere. Yes, so we took a good look housing and the design section of the new issue and you know we found this incredible. You found this incredible housing development just up the lake here in Zurich and it. It's really going to what I was saying about maximizing quality of life of every square inch, and it's a development that sits beautifully here by the lake in Zurich, but you could also see it. You know in a neighborhood in Copenhagen and suburb in Melbourne and I guess that's what we've tried to talk about a lot in the magazine it's. Improving housing floral, and as as you mentioned with an extraordinary sense of scale, Nolan jails are designing architecture editor very good to see you. You're listening to the briefing. Our editor Andrew Right after this. took. And you still with the briefing on Montell twenty four I will advise our listeners. We are going to run a little bit over time, so we're not gonNA. Stop Bright hard at the bottom of the hour, because Andrew Taco editors there. We want to give him just a little bit more airtime and I'm here as well so we can run. We can run the show. We June afternoon program if we want to. Is Radio Station Taller. Now let me Maybe go back to. We were talking to our senior correspondent Sophie Grove at the top of the program. She was highlighting little bit of of really. The pressures may maybe also the expectations around What we're due to here very shortly from downing. Street if if they haven't kicked off all already, but if you look at any of the British press of the international press today, are weeks of course correction Andrew. There's there's been so much pressure on the government particularly Prime Minister his style of leadership is approach to leadership and now it seems that this could be a moment to at least get things back up to speed or at least at a level where. The UK, like it or not, as a bit more at least in league with the with the economy which is. Tied to that being that of the U.. Yes expecting a huge number of announcements in the next few minutes, it looks to households for example. Be Out in meet indoors, but for the economy domestic holidays allowed suddenly from July the fourth. then. There's also a museums going to be allowed to open art galleries allowed to open. As you were mentioning a pub seem spear point that people go back to again and again because it's seen as such a kind of populist ticket, but pubs allowed to reopen his, but the interesting thing is for all of these situations whether you're a restaurant. Par for hairdresser allowed to reopen its very much. Do you have an appointment? Do you have a ticket so to go to the pub? It looks at. You will have to book a place in a time slot to go to the park. And and then. Also is going to be a one way system as well. And this is of course you go into, and you saw a few weeks ago Andrew as well when things that opened up here that yeah, I mean. We both need to be in the business of making yellow tape for sure because there are so many off the shelf also improvised systems of course, which which guide you in and out of of all of these spaces, but it just it's so curious. Know just when you're a few weeks. Distant from these locked measures when people are talking in terms of people meeting amongst households which is odd when people I mean you're back at work and many other people are back work in your meeting. People from multiple household so. It's just again. It just doesn't seem very joined up and I'm wondering again going back to chances. Is this almost could it be a moment for them to get on the front foot and say look at when we've seen so many heads being scratched around the world, where yeah, you can go to a nightclub and be with three hundred people in Zurich, but then you still have social distancing and shops doesn't make sense. did the same hold true there, and maybe they should be jumping a bit further ahead. I guess also recognizing there are still. Quite a significant number of cases though that are coming up every day versus elsewhere on the continent. Yes, we had fifteen deaths announced yesterday on a Monday the lowest since March ten ten bays four into the lockdown. The Monday figure is whereas lower, and you need infection rates, so we still had. I think are just under thousand infections announced yesterday, whereas if you look at somewhere like Spain their data roughly three hundred days, so it's still a tricky situation here. They look as they're going to ease the social distancing to one meter, I, think also there's recognition that they're putting a little bit of faith back into people saying. Look we. We're going to tell you what to do. Stick by these rules, and then we'll feel comfortable about it, but the reality is. Is You easy situations more and more and more when you when you go to the park? Two or three playing football together you go to the park. You see a large group of people playing sports gather. People are already making up their rules, and I think that in people's minds. If they're in a in a young generation, they've already reset their dial in a way. That's really fascinating is very different. Older people who are still wearing moss still concerned about their health in a big way. You can't stop people re adapting to what feels like the situation. They're in so despite all the warnings. People are resetting their clocks. According to what they feel, what's happening to their friends and relatives, and under just before we go to things how how I question, how does retail one week on the second point that we're of course expecting as you were talking about pubs, talking about the F. and B. Industry and lifting around there, and and there's been a lot of leaked now that this is going to be the moment for. For you know alfresco dining to to return for the UK to feel very Mediterranean, all of these types of things so I has retail field, but then how how? How is his ALFRESCO not going to play out with? We know that cities also have too many people are are living above restaurants and shops, and could we sort of see some civilized out or less less civilized unrest around that? I think retail is still very sleepy because the great thing about going out to buy clothes for example. Is You you? You don't quite know what by want to wander around the store. Did I like the other thing? You go backwards to see that that jumper or that jacket? You'd say you can't do that. Anymore is one way, and it's very strict. Now was interesting is I've would pass some very smart boutiques which are trying to insist that people go on a one way route even when there's one person in the store. Then there's this idea that if you touch something, then they can't allow it to remain on sale if you try something on, they have to put it into its own quarantine seventy to ask. It's not that fun I. think that while some of the stores had a big rush and the first couple of days it's still feels quiet. And she summoned the big stores even on the legs of oxygen regents. We have still not opened where some of the tiniest stores where they have star furloughed. decided she is better off. If we just carry on with mail order, because if I bring all the staff back to get this shop up and running at this point, I'm not confident that I won't dishonest making a huge loss loss, so it's very gradual. Round the. I, get a sense that. If the weather loss, and if it's not too bad I think it could be pretty good because I think there could be a bit of a street festival atmosphere if tables ought, whereas was feasible, allowed to be placed outside. They're saying pub car parks. Can All be turned into ALFRESCO dining spots and also interesting, which is always been against against the law here in the UK. There's going to say you can. Can Go to a POB and take your drinks away, so you don't have to drink them on the premises anymore. It's not about licensed premises. They're going to be I. Would Do Take Beers and genital Nex.

Real Reign in Madrid

"Walkman solicitation of ESPN SEM. Craig Burley and Shack. Here's primarily harming elite to come a little later on. We'll start though in Spain. The big game in Europe Madrid Dombi Ramsey mentioned as we've seen across the globe over the last few days days sports things paying tribute to Kobe Bryant. There was a minute silence before today's kickoff to the action then eighteen minutes in total the challenge tonight by cool. That's good too hot to get their shop. His right hand side of the awkward distance form the best team in the first half offer Korea Post could've Morocco and then the angle narrowed down for a difficult Johnson Johnson. But you're right. They were playing really well and maybe they should have had a penalty. Hey and nothing was given October. She's apparently without question. Customer support. Touch Murat Defeats Roth South from Europe. I think intentionally end to the second half we go then. We saw the early going to the game by Corrine Benz. Emma done the left onsite. Aw Baseball and he's a big time. Players Karen Venema comes up with the goods in big occasions. Real Madrid ben with the win. Put some six points points clear of Barcelona who take on seventy tomorrow thing. Anyone will remember for very long. Wasn't particularly impressive. Franson better in the first half around. You're getting it done. Yeah I got the job done. Play better in the second half. Let's score in the second half to be here. And that's the big problem when they have been playing well lately dead for four or five minutes really. Haven't got a prolific guy to put the ball in the back of the net. Okay some wrote decision making a final thought maybe possible penalty. I saw an from open. Play Murata thank nine and calm so something Anthon light is. It's it's mediocre. They need some. That's getting by this stage of the season. Somewhere between fifteen and twenty goals on goal from in the middle of the park in the moment and for that reason the quite folk playing badly certainly not in this game that a long way off the top of the League defensively Elaine Round. You're looking good on and let's go back to the fish. Forty-five Kuchwara did have to make a couple of days. And I thought the most impressive thing with this is Dan meet at halftime or nearly. ILENE second cruiser coming off Lucas Vasquez and and resilient what mcgann junior coming home on the high and just couldn't couldn't find any kind of speed and in the end it was very comfortable defensively in particular for Real Madrid in in the second. Now do you stand on the penalty. Tell Him we will. You know I mean I watch it and I think also penalty to be quite frank with you from the more CEA and nothing shots right. CAST Amira is an experienced player. I need through his body until Alvarado Murat's lots of the are on bearing in mind they have like most other countries via the refused to go back and change it. No there will be some. They say well the other way. Yeah that'd be right for penalty for sure I mean. Well let's take you through. What happened in the premier the League? Let's take a look at some of the results Installing early abstract against Chelsea finishing Tutu elsewhere you tallish leasing out against Sheffield United. They move up to fifth in the table. West Palm sugar in big trouble on three Boom with with a win against village. Give them a little bit of Hope Evanson with to nail down. We'll come back and win. Three two against WOFFORD Liverpool win four nil against and we'll start showing Manchester United against ends wolves nil nil just the united then sick in the table level on points have roles that win for Sheffield United. Move them up to faith Five points now behind Chelsea. Let's show you what happened to Old Trafford you the highlights but there weren't really any highlight was both teams. Neither neither team played bodily right away from home. Current attack and well organized teams Renault and United Law Numbers Law and Energy Latin quality in the final felt because lots of possession but I suppose for the United Finds. They've got a glimpse of Brennan Fernandez who started the game needs to speaking and integrate properly. Clearly he's going to be a good player but for sixty five percent or so. Possession united gale in the final. And we're always we're always going forward particular Arale Jimenez. Yeah you're right. The only talking point here is Bruno. Fernandes starts but I think the bigger city from my perspective is that I thought they could as well a few weeks ago you asked who would finish four and I thought wolves would can leapfrog everybody else and get in there and but you look at this performance where I thought that you know now show. Yeah Yeah but I. I'm looking for civilizing here for unite and I thought they themselves well against who before no I thought was sitting in the top four teams in the league. That's about as good as it can get united especially when you consider injuries and spread to manage speaking of four of Lesser Against Chelsea. Fun Game this certainly. In the in in the second half Chelsea fortunate would you suggest to appoint this one lesser a couple of chances the poles lay on. Well yeah certainly. In terms of the way Chelsea played well in the first half criticism CIANCI's unless the came back into golf got BA harvey bombs from the deflection when he cavallero of course starting temple. Yeah that's a big conceived this I I have no problem. Really we've been a couple of games But if they're kept again leftover at this stage of the season against this position I'll be worried agree to think. It's what lump wild has been saying for a few weeks now and I think maybe peeved a little bit about the lack of any the action and the transparent window which I think is is made them small thing a little bit is the good possession. Some nice football particularly particularly on and no one product again. I mean young Reese James put a couple of wonderful bogues and one in particular Abraham and we think he goes with with their own land. Yeah I mean it was odd because he goes with with the right. I thought maybe he's protecting his bad ankle. But if memory serves me correctly it was his right that he'd hit against awesome so it made no sense for play that I think very highly of it was a poor decision from Tommy abrupt. Some some of Jesse's football I. I thought it was very good food but in the end you take that point because Lester really were the better the two and Shoulda Shoulda Jecklin. Don't be because you you know when the plane waylon games they look at the million dollars. Knock around this is a genuine. It's the get it why Phil Bucks Forward To get Mon and good possessions. And then when when the opposition whoever as an obscene is done for Brigitta season whenever the opposition could a foothold in the game the pilot and the just saw eludes the the shape and elude any sort of discipline. That was kind of late again today. Don't quite understand the reasoning behind the goalkeeper situation nation. I know we looked settling the game. The second goal the Belarus go. But it wasn't a disaster now I don't see see the long term gain from bringing check to eight year old guy who's GonNa play the Cup competition back into the fray especially want he's prone to these sort of mysterious yes he is an and I feed you play for like you're GonNa make these errors and and some of them some of them. I don't see how this benefits kept up in any this now. I don't know what kind of discussion Frank Lampard had with capable the situation about about his own performances thomases but from the outside looking in. I'm not sure how this makes him better. How much your holidays improves? As a goalkeeper being left out in a game of this magnitude magnitude with the spotlight. Quite clearly on you know. That's something that Franklin Pot is is he's GonNa have to manage because I don't see how you finish your season really cover year ruin go and still because you know you're you're risking the top for the only thing I can think of to try and paint. A picture is seen scene. Thanks from Kepa with the playing ninety minutes that it doesn't make right. Maybe it should as you maybe spoke to Kipah about something else else and it didn't wait the players reaction and he thought well okay. I'm GonNa Leave Yo now. That's just don't management and nuts has decision but if he is making a decision like this it has to be mindful that the recent inconsistencies of the Chason Park by. But here's the thing you have. You have a fragile. What may be a fragile awesome given so many inconsistencies? You've seen from them over over over the last month and a half. But no you complaining about the transfer window where you have to strengthen the squad and you you fire a broadside after goalkeeper. How does that play out in a gesture in between knowing the NBC's and when these players you're gonNA find broadside shack? Come I'm from. Let's say the top four Shelley Liverpool Shapiro. Right Don Lemon. Ah who you've seen from the chasing pack. Yeah Yeah for sure and possibly in looking at consistency. I'm looking at worlds as possibly the most concession unit with team selection with a goal threat threat well organized under very good manager and you know money united for all the criticism of them are are hanging in there. You cannot rule out me for how it's so telling Liverpool win again and we're going to talk about it because run out of things to say what wasn't actually eulogizing eulogizing about your team not much. Because I've seen them play better off to use it. Well the thing is very good to start with. Yeah yes yes so here. We are talking about a foreigner defeat again. We gave you a phone calls every single day and only version in the show. You can check it out over on our website available on apple podcasts. Your home is important. That's why GYCO GEICO helps make it easy to save on Homeowner's insurance because home is more than just a place home is where he built a giant pillow fort in your living room and when people ask why you have a pillow fort in your living in room.

Homeowner's insurance to the Bundesliga Dan Bruce Feldman taking on Union Berlin Holland's first start for doormen remember. He's already got fine goals of the bench not by twelve minutes. The clock hedge ain't Sandjak makes just cuts inside guessing. Buddy huge reflection colluded with the goalkeeper. Good start two and four then tributes the county Bryan six minutes later Ling highlands with a go back just even for one so young just reads the situation. IT GETS HIMSELF ACROSS HIS MON- into the six-yard box. Just a notch into the second half and Colin looking his second down by the goalkeeper down the bullet through Sanchar again. Just shows good piece good balance for big man and these keep up floundering county. Obviously the decision Monka Royston schools. Four minutes later. It's four nail for Doorman. Central Place in into Whitson Royce. No happy a tool about being subbed off players. I know okay. Breeze in them Then fourteen minutes remaining in Holland. Keep of disappointed that he makes five now Snot it's not one for the goalkeeper scrapbook but Holland around and certainly doesn't need to proceed dolman at the moment scoring goals fund He's averaging it's GonNa batch me a goal every nineteen minutes. Seven is less than three matches. You you mentioned that of course for someone so young Andrea Eleven minutes or some things before. Today's game track right not leading from Norway Israel and the and the playoffs which may affect cullen as well so Well as long as you think affects at least their worries you know yeah. We saw the game came off the bench the last game we come off the bench when you went round the goalkeeper finished from not really took his time on composed themselves. Then we saw the Fusco there where the bulbs is outweighed any sense as he knows if the player makes a yard to to cross where he has to be any abilities. Minorities is more aggressive than his mockery gets across gets in there and guess he's just awards is already an has lost l.. Don't get me wrong. And no peaks and Troughs Bay already has the physicality because there's a big Lod for one so young but he's got the brains of strikers obscene is taking years to get understand where to be and went to be there sometimes. You can't teach out it's just not the most impressive quality the maturity about the runs that he makes the positions that he takes up about anticipation as credit right and he says. No one when you're talking about a nineteen eighteen year old. These are things you expect them to add game later on but to be doing that with such efficiency know about that. I mean he's package the aspect of it don't mean closing the gap at the top table. Of course the big game in Germany with a knife six. That's eight will take on a bruce you mooching Gladbach when it gained Mississippi Excellent and the first twenty four minutes in plan making it one nil very much and God back. That's all Louis across and prayer for the first time ten minutes later. Jonas Hoffman makes the most of a poor clearance to make it to tell. You won't see a because this weekend then the one that I watched it looks simple but actually it's not and it was up to brilliant and what about this shack. Hey five minute since the second half and some jobs it I mean really poor and I'll be honest. Leipzig were struggling. The big couldn't find that we're on the back of much Gladbach. And then someone does this amazingly over his own defenders wral. It's it's pulled. Gould keeping keeping brings back into the gift to shooting yourself in the foot. Obviously young some of that and play it into the gun decides get himself sent off just stupid what they call yellow here for your fortunate if arms around he's he's an easy he's risking trouble increasing. It took sponsors distract but once months ago about not ten men labs it would jomon and it did take something special to get a point. I'd say a few delivered fortune to that. Meanwhile mindset on I'm Munich. Bond would've loved that results and they would make the most of it as eight minutes in Robert Levin endorse gay making it one nil what a ball across this is again. Just give this my Hoffy out of speech on his suit. Clinical clinical penalty eleven ski town. Well it wasn't the penalty. Sorry no almost Molin makes it gets it gets claw told that's for sure Melissa. Good cluttered Miller was pick up the pieces and then twelve minutes later. GIAGA makes it three. Now you're looking at here this. The rule of trump the ball through two defenders and furnish the icing on the cake might get one bank by Munich name with a good win and bombing after all that struggles early on in the season. Top of the Bundesliga got one Clare of live sick now Borussia Dortmund move up to third with that win level points where the brochure mooching Gladbach in Italy game announced people change to swallow and Roma the hosts just immense early on in this game seven minutes insane Caputo one nil. That's an extra ball to pick them out tied out and go defender over comments the cuts inside and then just makes easy. We can finish rumors donahue better an seven slater who took his second down the right hindsight and then there's a love coat and would you believe it twenty six minutes into swallow three nail off Clarence Clarence Liquor posse also left porn into space. Church just does does it. Justice Roman looking for a comeback in the second half they would stop by Edin Jessica severe initially from keep within. Jayco just getting a bobby's mind and head. Basically into an empty net GIECO didn't make it three to five minutes late. Hey Tony he now Israel chance Heya Challenge Fund. Mrs Could Strike here good savings then. Check going to pressure. Could've put his head on. That would have been a BA- risk. Pellegrini gets a second yellow Ramadan. A ten man. Take it into the seventy first minute penalty to Roma humble against Boga. Yeah Yeah I don't think there's any doubt in refugee clearview pointed streets bespoke boss it home to make three to however may for giving away the penalty with a really nice go to make it four to cuts and sideboards sits up nicely for from you.

Eight minutes into this one policy would make one now forge us come on flush even been this is a long way old takes a pretty special strike and then ten minutes later compellingly down to ten men makes the coal Kiva comes out Protected his face. Yeah takes never do such a thing. Cavalier Ben Coming on to replace Bertel minutes before the break nice okay. Between Savia De de de Maria Dora a few times getting on his left foot and just below uh-huh movie he seemed before it would be well. That's crazy I replayed. Oh off gung as had ends in the back of the net own-goal three now second off clean up a I four now spree so the challenge that is only ever one result. Nobody can catch him and then he just shoe who would finish men into the sixty fifth minutes pay. Is Our five now straight off. Today's Imbaba is substituted. A not for the first time clearly not happy with Toko there's Toco can seem a bit Madonna's on the touchline baked baby the AFC then we invite five goals to nail him as a problem. Because let's say I'll tell you what's the problem and you can see typical. They're trying to dissolve. Because here's a game where the cancer is done right by my oaks here here we have the one of the only talented player but arguably the most talented player in their squad and all these big games coming coming up and you want to give people raced keep them fresh keeping away from energy that is not like ps Geo losing in the game three to know and he wants to stay on the field to do something to make. A difference is is done dusted this as a problem and this is one of the issues. PSG half because he's not alone and acting like this as enjoy this a food. Sorry for Thomas Too I really do. The challenge is trying trying to figure out why his angry. Yeah for all the reasons that creditors pointed out. There's no football in reason for him to react the way that he does. And if it's if there is a footballing reason then he doesn't wanNA sideline. It makes no sense to me. Let's just say then how things stand showy in in League on after that result at thirteen points clear of Mossy in second incredible result in the championship lead united. Losing a home against. We're GONNA LET by one goal to nil. It's incredible incredible. How those top two just don't seem to want to get it done for them with the wind today is going to be interesting? Thank you very much into Craig and Chaka more from us from our until I welcome into extra time. If you know anything about any of today's games the boys have been here for eight hours so long time watching the only rugby as well from name principally what's hottest thing is rankings on watching the united play. Goodness what's tonight. Hardwood you'll show today. Paul Ryan Leipzig. Oh well lights slider negativity out showing. Yeah talking points ends cloud bath. You've the only one the office shelves. Ah How do you guys like nays new haircut ridiculous as a man who was experienced of Coloring his half aswell bloggers all right very excellent blog. Pink Yeah I mean. It is strange.

Football plays doing fine fine also when things get angry about throwing coach. Ah Bs she finds not give a joint as long as he performed yet guys in the Champions League I'm particularly but pink shack at which of the top five leagues of the best goalkeepers at the moment goodness off too. That's a lie. I suppose you got tasks thanking on all black against Alison Edison that becomes a fair Basle Liberal Liverpool the fittest team by far it seems most team gave Liverpool a tough first half as they expand a lot of energy to try and disrupt livable game plan on and rhythm and by the time we reach the last fifty minutes they can't keep up resulting in so many and I'm sure fitness is a big thing for them as for every club most clubs anyway but I think the answer is within the question Is Is that teams. have to work so hard for another plus I just try and stay in the game or or get the ball off. Liverpool defend against Liverpool ultimately a lot the teams are spent more energy by the end of his. So you think you You get your rest run when you have the recipe to help people whenever you win the ball. I guess Liverpool their pressure new. Show that it's it's tough to catch your breath.

"You ask podcast streak tonight. South jimmy and the voi- teddy. Recently a lot of people have been talking and weighing up the options that mr southgate has when it comes to the european championships solving that had no a lot. And we've decided that we are going to try to put together a squad of twenty three players that we would take the tournament Gareth southgate is a man that divides opinion even in orange shops. He is not the most popular figure. for one. He doesn't wear his waistcoats enough. He needs to get back on that. Were really score some points where some of us gareth will have struggles picking a twenty three. That will not set people that will not divide opinion. But i think we can all agree the pool of players. He's picking on has to be one of the most exciting we have had in a very long time. So with that in mind myself and ted are gonna put together. Twenty-three plays we will probably divide opinion amongst the people listening but as ever we will try to entertain you. Wa- thought we will not fall out. We do agree on. Some things is what being father and son and it without any waffle from me. We'll straighten and ask ted to run for the options that we have in go sotet take away so first one is Probably the main candidate you big found at the Jordan pickford of see two thousand eighteen. Welcome kiko knees never letting them down as of yet another one. May you'll think of as a thug. Ob dean henderson russo. Few of the mothership called. All of sam. Johnston alex mccarthy oh preplanned seems secretly could shake right now but three very good they certainly not lacking in any action to To test their skills just touching on them. Some johnson the goalie with the worst back in the league the madison. She's picking the ball out that. Obviously i doubt i'll jump back. I think we both agree in talking. Pope and pickford are one and tell us they are number one number thirteen. We are really looking for the choice. Keeper here leaves us to handle dollar mccarthy johnson. Ov- all of them say johnson's got the back. Alex mccarthy i thought last season had a fantastic finish off the off the lockdown shutdown of the premier league. He came back and played very well for southampton this year and sally. The moment can't run for missing. Great call darlow. Who is a friend of the friend of the show. Mr ferrall offshore. In when i said it's not just about short stopping within us little picture for all of us and then dean henderson. Who you're done with tech. He'd done with his number twenty three. I've already got called all just in case there's an injury you hustle backup because he played this year. A decent amount losses and mine is bench getting cold and we all now concerned. It's not it's not regular all we now concern. The dollar isn't going to play for newcastle. Another dubrovka fan and he came back into the weekend question that is seen how is cyber warriors for recall his phenomenal keeper about once in the league in these or should we gonna sell the bench around these just playing. Because he's a. He's a favor of the company's been there a long time. But i think if you go on the season i think newcastle shuki playing dollar. And i think i would be taking count as my third choice keeper probably play hopefully whilst play up if we do need him. I think he's a study parents. Aunts indeed indeed we will touch and one of the things that we've spoken about as incomes of international level when it's an touched upon in a recent pod the experience that these players have a high level be that champions league or europa league obscene. The ones that we are naming their. We've looks like mr henderson's going to stay at home. If ted gets his way off those he is the only one that is playing european. Football is not just looking for that. Roy is does does. This highlight one of all week areas. Then as as the number one jazzy. The The weakness we've scored a concern. I'm not sure if it's a weak area as much as they are playing or we teams and hence appropriately always forward because of addis analysis and woke husky was but they haven't sun full money in their flame The big clubs. But i don't need as much for these guys are consistently playing score defenses in a ton to quality and making regular seasons piece. I think keeping that team's games. I mean yesterday. Something greg jordan. Pickford selling mae defeat big saves the and they still burger. Barbecue is made his fair share of mistakes but he celebrate on kibo. I think nick for in beyond that. Burn backline he does keep the law games when they keep clean sheets normally down to him so we go in. We're gonna poke pickford and we'll take you missed. The dollar will on the experience. Yep one what ansa first game. The aero's his thought engulfing nick poke kuc's he'd we move on to move onto right backs. Now we know in england. Currently there are about fifty seven quality like backs who could walk into international team including choice. Frank including the mighty george franken Give me give me the shortlist of the backs. We are looking at here full. That will be seriously considered trump. Donald reese james our sokha and kieran tripper. Can we have a quick check to see if joao salem has an english passport. Please i would love our love. Yeah that we check in his nationality. So that's a loss wealth riches almost iraq back. They are all ticking. The box in terms of playing european will Are in one ba. Soccer is the your europe. Thursday night's premier competition europa league. This is tough now on. Mr southgate is a fan of in tripura. As i'm only. Yeah i'll i'll are. We having here in tripura as our as our starting back for me yes. I think he's been involved in the defense often so so good and i to be honest. Life peaked when he hit the freakiness cratia and from then on he has been one of my favorite walls so i would say that he He wants to talk to me. he's he's going forward to eat. Good food going backwards. I what means. But i like that. You're you're locked picked a few years ago when he did that. So on the and listening so we've skipped a behavior. Pre prerecorded nece. Ted decided to automation was going to be full. Two three one ted. It's research and notice. The guy is a fan of free. Full free we just feel that that is almost a waste all the right back ocean we have and then just a waste of the parts of saucy nece in terms of attacking midfield that will come onto in a bit. She's playing extra setup buckley w. Yes so we're gonna go. We're gonna fool to three one. We did consider full one full one which is a formation. I used to enjoy when pat played a bar. Munich discuss while we all doing that light. Okay the amount of spoken. I was going to say now. Let let's come on. I was gonna say. Let me get secretaries. Turn off so anyway on knowing that we are two three one and we're not good at twenty three. I think we can say right back in that squad. Who do we take. I think looking at if you played three four able to be taking arctic regions similar complain so like a rice sandbox law on a ride back by think you. Wb i try no-go destroyers. Who's going forward on win. Over biggest fans defensively but i think as an england spin it in a very uneasy leverage and in his time and i think he is ciller calling lot vice suddenly going forward all we now seen glimpses probably statement. Are we now seen him return to form because he didn't have the great start to the season. reportedly he did get cova. He suffering from an illness of was covered. He he didn't come back from a period often. Set the world light again. But i think now wish seeing glimpses of air so full that reason is he is he peaking at the right time together on to the plane i think he is. I think he looks. Her against shepardson is through the night. So your locker forward. Which i suppose the best washington's for yasser still actively you still have to play well against him so i think if liverpool gets the champions The aces pulling the season by season. He will he and under ropes. Big so i think that if it would be well trained and then he got he will so at the moment reese james and i remember saka Masako big east got no international express. Again he is considered face considering moving. Nationalites deal congress. Listen to do. But i think yeah i think he's missing special experience thornton shops experience. Fine so i think we've we've. We've assessed that trips is. Starting trent sound the bench ready to come on when needed so we switched to the left backside side. I think this is probably one of the easiest calls you have to make some leftback run us through all options before we do so. I had down. Show justin creswell show with the knowledge. That james in unlikely to the aclu relics bill fortunate because is falling season. But i think he will. Miss out You bring in his way. Would you consider was another black backwards in their needs to consider the by quality. The other ones skis me the other one he was played. Left-back do not seem as an international left-back is saka baku soccer arsenal. Sorry baku second. Same claude cracking yeah. I'm up in a moment. Modern and the manila about talking to boston right box. And the other one who has played there that being left back all he has now moved clubs. because he doesn't wanna play left-back. What's going on loan. Because he wants play central midfield. He certainly not gonna get into these teams as sentiment filter. Dining he gets in there as a left back. That's megan knows it's much guy. i do. miss footballer are just. He's not he's not the brakes he's not taking your unity's and not knowing his position so stage in life of what he wants. He's going to miss out so soccer dope doesn't justin's injured with down social cheer while creswell is gonna break my heart to leave aaron cresswell at home but surely she'll and kill well international experience european club. Experience is is quite an easy decision. I think it is. I think they got to maybe consider is the chill. I pay the weekend maneuver. I think he is play chelsea. He's been picked the only mocks lonzo. So maybe he isn't getting much gametime. But i mean england experienced chaplains experience. I think i think i think about reason. All we say that luke shores not enough neck looking at how while he's played this year in the improvements made. I think he's got i think he gives more balanced aside thing he's better defensively and show off. Show me so as more of a wing back. So i would go. I think for the balance. A team like go shoe. It's got nothing to do with the fact that he is in both of audrain teams also cinemax. There's there's there's options here. I'm not sure if the options are the ones necessarily world well again. It could be another week area for us. Run me through the options that we have We have eric da lewis. Dunk kona cody. Johnstone's howard mcguire talk. Hausky means michael keane and we should go call gary k. Who is a big pool players. It is but i'm not sure how good it is. No all well. I think for me the starting to we. We look slobber. Just he's he's got the experience he's being there. Eighty at the moment seems to think that he's franz beckenbauer stack stepping out of the bat with bobby. How's it quite well. You also call and louis touching it in the chat labor day and said it doesn't matter the off. The mcguire defended the moment. He's actually he thinks he's the corporate going forward and would say that it does. It does communicate and for that reason. And i think Johnstone should be partner on stones has been playing. Well alongside ruben diaz. I think it's because the ass talks communicates. I don't see stones as the number one cents back. But he's certainly a partner to to someone lock mcguire so for me. The first two names setbacks also starting to all warren stuns yep completely agree to say those two all and sasha experience. Both walkup experienced both Champions the your european experience experienced both the only the only possible worries. That johnson's is not being carried by the us is looking like a best inspect because he is next to the us i think i think on his games proved which come back as He's come issue very well. Justice luke show has confidence will be a key. Yeah i think confidence with stone stone to be a key On exactly what you say. Some someone quality like the s can paper over the cracks of people around them. Authentic pet would have brought him back and giving game on is much game thomas he had done if if that was completely the case and let's conference systems will help him through. Es keeping equality sense blocking america for all these teeth. Yes well puffins tonight. But that's pep rotation lubango one I think we should look at to two backups. We might need to come back to third talk hausky. He was actually for world cup. Twenty eighteen talk. Hausky was on the The replacement so often twenty three the reserves a four five reserves named talk hausky was on that obviously talk hausky a team who i think are under performing but i think they are under performing because they lack firepower. It's it's nothing to do them. Defensively roach off on the guardrail. Show and what it did to them on sunday. Everyone's of bad day talk probably spend when the better place. I think talk hausky needs to be considered in this. Not so sure ben. May i think no. I think he might be. I think he's one of those. Where if you pick in. I was going to carry on. Playing this wasted off. Selection was second date and for that reason although he playing very well moment in for palace gary k hill. This would be if he works. Go i feel it will be an international storms on him and he probably showing enough in a row palace. Defense probably doesn't more in a place go into the euro's yeah the only reason you would maybe consider Causes the experience. He has on hundred if if we had space in the scored for a fifth sense about to go potentially just for won't players in terms of leadership at the moment we are not Talk huskies on the list lewis dunk. I know you're. I'm a founder stuff. I think i i realize that freaking to allow About some of the discussion. I think i think bryson saudis difficult to read quality co sense about because they are team dominant games with do can see goals so he wouldn't be my number one choice as a backup In the story. I would be looking at that. That for probably be conaco do one. Mr cody on. Yeah well. I think he's better than a three. So i think taking those allow for change Shut us well should get one kings dust onslaught fucking form for overton. I think he's a good about director as well. Cornices aces I think you'll take because all of us to the two thousand eighteen world cup. I think each will. There's people that can play a few different roles since apply eric. Dial and he's no. Why favourite defender. Oh publ general. I think he's not sir worn a place. Fuck up usual. Play the twenty three new so last how saying said about so you'll be my fingers will actually if we take taking talk husky that six. We've got some work to do so with that. I'm saying so called. Woke is a public is in no no even as he can play right back and send it back but can't buy the three one. He's also game tom the moment. Why so Tauron means oil have hours for if ago. Now all i i've done of stops the backup because he is a member of the defense of kept the most clean sheets this year but i think a lot of the reason in villa have kept. Clean sheets is purely because i million multi has. He's he's re just ridiculous. This year he he is making a lot saves per game. He's been tested. And what you said earlier. You might have edison or allison then not really having to make quality defense in front of them will is having to make saves. Does that mean he's not gonna quality defense. Does that mean tyrod means actually isn't isn't there only one thing i'd i watch tara means just how are you that was we wish today and that was just noise. That came out not see the noise. That's coming on. Tv was the same time mile. This guy yeah you did. You did rewind it and listen to this things but yeah Thing he's already leader. I think he will become a very very about us. You know how old he is. But he's got old. And i think he will life during the blaze paul and maybe the next world cup for future tournaments and But just for now. I would say that he's not quite right chalco okay. We we thought would be quick. We've we've been quite long. Hey so we're gonna go we're going to go for initially so we say in slob. Ed johnstone's to more put it on the block. I would go. cody cody. Came on with you darling. So we're gonna move on now to hold in midfielders holding santa midfielders. How look into take So i bought holding wilson means. Just they don't have to be holding. They can just be midfielders such a. Yeah so sh- crisis no six eight So all night. Hey that we probably would want three. We might even have to consider a four point. Forty three one Who who we. We're going get joe henderson's go go up. It goes well say that the orangemen lemonade is my head. And then we need to give me options day. Eyeglass royce proust phillips jude bellingham and harry wings down. Because he played red mountain he gets paid to kick a football. Sometimes when let's income on. I i actually think on that. No i'm just gonna cross him out now. let's not. Let's not even discuss on one. The other one are listed down was curtis. Jones might be just a tournament bombing. This we're gonna talk about bellingham two years younger and As someone to go and then going to say jones mark come too soon. I think in intensive experienced bellingham. This summer she was planning the championship. Will what we do in Get less let's percussions on the list. Yes let's do so so we go. We've got to from five at the moment henderson going. We won't to more from bellingham. Rice phillips debut pay and the boy jones who looking at the. I think that should go. I think he's been no real leader. Wasn't always i didn't write him that highly lashing though i think really grown into his role as the west ham seeing who do really well and i think he's very similar john anderson. I think yeah. I just i just think i think i'm not yield football up. I think he does joke. really well. just commands that west ham team from a position. He wins the bull the passes. I think you can also go back into Right jump back into the geraldo should immediate to. I think he has the before. You join the group chat on whatsapp that there wasn't a lot. Love that royce. There there was an awful on instead of hateful petitional but he was a dislike for him said the fact that we are here represents j. given an england team and we are saying that moisture going i feel like i just need a shivering of a wash but i fully support that because he he has looked different player. This year is probably good for chelsea's good for westbound fat. Franks left chelsea. Because he was he was. He was trying to wear a blue shirt for next year. So i'm on the depth data and ross so jabe massive declan roscoe's and then without a one from four calvin village jude bellingham jada. Up curtis jones. We're going to completely contradict ourselves here. But curtis jones doesn't have the experience so i'm not gonna take him although his development is very interesting Jude bellingham calvin village. Jada you pay oil of gwp all's Saga free at washington. He's fahey's the new mutt letitia. In the fact that he's not probably not going to get that. Many england caps today have twenty whereas yellen probe said if that mom was doctored about over one hundred international caps a splinter be a one club man. He's gonna sit on the south coast. He's going to be an absolute here from the he's going to school. Wondrous goal after wonders. Go set people up but i just don't think they should have made international level. Put out there just his form at the moment. Jaded p isn't it's not screaming. Take me take me. Take me so should ask him. I think eight does craiova chance and was not from set-pieces. Because we're herman and i think tim no more high up front foot yet. Vestergaard bednarik duelfer. Something i think when he gets a chance to short distance cycle. I think that if that's all he's really always know her. But i think that's he's. Major attribute is as a team and they do not have southampton do not have the absolute love gravy of tacking voters. We're gonna come onto in minute In front sight he he might be a bit redundant in the squad which brings us down to jute bellingham and Case at the yorkshire pillow. They call him. That doesn't so roll off the tongue. Much like jack powell. Crawley town the peckham pillow that does roll off the tongue in the pack impaler and he can be Sometimes he could allow the pack ponies. Were blessed calvin phillips all. I've he's obviously been out injured for wall. He when he dropped back to censor back in a certain. Fa cup game which we want shoehorn in too much. He looked ordinary. If i didn't gordon read it like he was planning leaked to the world's slowest man. With the quickest feet. A ruler went past him messy normally. Yeah the league's messy And so putting cross his aprons. Jude bellingham now. Looking jeep pending in seventeen is not experienced so contradicting myself curtis jones but but but but what is he doing. He's starting for bruce. Dortmund playing champions league football we can we out and i think that will count for an awful lot. Can't see him starting games. I think it behind us in in royce bellingham being there. I think that'd be a fantastic option. And you said before they he's reminding you over. Must via the way wins the bull by the move. I just think you slightly different to our other foods. Where i think calvin phillips as basically adecco vice or henderson. He's sloppy knows good with the top. Yeah i i. I would go to jeep just for the record. Wherever scored number jude. Bending gets we will not be retiring the shirt off tournament. Well it depends does if e schools if he wins the world cup of all cups for us ninety six minutes we can retire every show skins we skin. The england skin old school rugby plays. We've letters on our back. Abcd right so that's that's those three on writing numbers as we go so we've got three eight so we've got fourteen men on the plane. We now how knowing who all going to set the world alight Visuals i she just entire forwards noticed. Just just just just list. I'm just going to sit back. Listen get comfy tests gonna read out a list of the attacking midfield loveliness that we have just just get comfy. Go out and just just shut your eyes and no particular order and listened to the name. Here we go hang on. I'm comfy gopher some mile. James madison jesse lingered jack rush ryan sterling. Hobby bombs mocks rochford. Kofoed foden cayo soccer jadon sancho columbus. Automo- lukman mason greenwood della gone as a society voice. Such they did she say. James madison did just matt is matt is confusing with. The legend is not as to crawley town could he could not as himself on the especially a non clinical james he is maybe if people next croix town and the i think we might get cut but i think i think george franken would listen to it right. Sorry i'm sweating with those names boozing out me just using love football the moment side we nine players to pick wiggling four to three one not traditionally. I think people would take full strike his. I think we take three given some of those names. You've listed there allows us. We'll we'll be able to back up needed to almost as a striker which means of those names for me. We take six. We are taking six nuggets of football wizardry just to say to them. Boise's just gonna have the tommy life. I'm probably going to be carried away. Who which six of them take in are just so many names or even halts everywhere ruin here. We taking me dead on number one definitely going these with over jack. Relevant novato at big succo. He's going to be all gaza for me. he's got school goal against scotland. Sit in the dentist. Shah will fill foden with a scowl casual squats day. Probably bring the vote count and everything but back to the masses so soci- velvet jack. Is there. I think we probably go through with. Who's not within bust. Who's not within mason right festival. Mason mason grace us is a no. He's there's potential there for the future and the last season if the will share he would have been knocking on the door and it'll be an easy thing for us to just to go. No so know. I'm gonna i'm gonna i'm gonna break your heart adamoli. Lukman at imola will be like had to. Mola so much so he's even my fancy team now. That is the handsy team. That is top of the j. crew fantasies. Well hopefully not seven four. And i'm going to blow and comfort. Now automotive look man doesn't go for me. Fortunately i think he doesn't produce deli deli and i would love spill. Say that you know he's josie faced. I'll say that we can think of yours followed. How exciting was it. Very briefly on we watched spurs blindly. You had came shung alley and bail when he came on and we like this is amazing and then later jozies have been very just ego. It got really and often. I appreciate you. K- moment was three or four now so there was nothing. It was dead in the water. But for me daily. Sarah delhi there. We moved to harvey bonds very quickly on. I'll have harbhajan's he's crossed. At least six weeks is a big. Ask yourself back and fit and back to the form that he was also not the experienced and not the club. Football greatness of the others in terms of experiencing europe loyalty they were. You are blake ave bounds. Comes out which means we've got saucy jack so down all without we need five from phil foden mason. Mount james madison jadon sancho. Come easy for me to say rahim style in rush with jesse in god five eight god tina. A soccer soccer say soccer. I'm sorry sack is a no. I'm sorry he's sorry. Sorry kyle put in his time. Yeah for me right now. There are three from straight away from me and is soccer Callahan going jesting as much jesse than not as a foot one person. And he's pretty restarts thraw on the david moyes at west time. If they get chumps exports will be down to him must like sort of big rain. I know that if they get that from piss point i think the new play enough the neutrons with your young humane mean but not just callum hudson a toy boy y no i realized play for under. How much is he gonna play. Yeah that's seems to be taken for broadens taken off again and Two reasons but just seems to so playing forty five minutes as like a white house all of four three four three. And i'm just not sure he's got the artisanal sure quite that in the towns of look the other players around the place either coming up against he's got the same quality and sorry. He's he's over. Had he been playing more on the frank lampard would we be. Would it be difficult. I suppose it's what we consider. It depends how chelsea with donald our hurts. It's not not not having a nag is but then when you sort of look at the other option down the right flank. We come to a man who of we've greatest the first name on the list but jadon sancho count before from top of about list. Even though he might not stop. I look face door just so it's watch. Now what do you think he. Fifty is by con corsets. Lindsey goes for sis. The just recently was twenty. Twenty seven eight years old preschool. Yeah because it's just so good to watch just a quality coins okay. So and i think he is. He's going as all second. Firearm dollars. Greenwich sancho so that means poor column. Hudson toy has been shopped. Axed is we're put on the reserve list show shabalin reserve list. Him him in dire can go on the reserve list and we can afford reserve list might be more list. We can have as many as we want so now we want four more and we've got we've got five names we do. We've got food and madison. Styling rush would now. Madison is out injured at the moment. But it's a matter of weeks weeks in every back again raheem sterling marcus. Russia's mason mount fill foden are. I think that there's an obvious four. That and i are out of mr madison and all. I think he'll physician. Has i think there's a big pay raise for james madison unless coming up in other golf. You injuries right. Justin peres cry. Madison bonds or injured currently was far as well. And they've just been known your nicola chance to really focus. Were pushed their way. Get chaplain discussion. Wiscon- no doubt you're puffing if they won't champions league football yeah although it seems like they have the unlucky with injuries. Well coming in the exact same time. Some rhythm and i think if last do get help four spaces again. I think that will be lying down to james madison and jamie baldy lincoln on. I think if they do get the that he will be an import player. Probably or hopefully gallon on the plane. Because he's just so good to watch such as a person while very like very on this character and i think he's gonna be one in that sorolla in addressing inside so well so full that with with taking matters which means mount foden sterling rush with. Now i just gotta jump in. Hey because there's going to be hopefully the however many listeners there are thousands millions who listen. They're all going to be shouted. Why have you not even said phil food and his on the plane. So let's just get out. And then i'll feel going. We don't even need to ensure that was. That was a little bit drama. If you guys out there assuming as soon as they played against the pool school about which is like yet he's gonna he's gonna do seriously he's the name for me. Would it be more first name on the list of that lot there but so mount sterling rash so all. I think it's important. We've so we've we've gone with henderson and rice. As all as to as to choose to hold a two midfielders we go mcflurry across. Are we saying that. We're going to have greenish on the left. Foden in the middle. Or he's very good on the right. But then allow jadon sancho on the right or are we in voting on the right and we're going to stick james madison in that number. Ten real look. Which because i think that also said that will say to us who we need to then take. We're going to do in this. Take malik rush would you. There's an argument that we shouldn't be taking release play a forty three one and i tell you what i'll tell you what. Let let let's stop. Let's stop let's stop with replant forty three one so we're going with. We've done with three strikers less complex combat to those to the final two in that list. Hauer kane is who up. Top harry carey kenyans. We take them. We're gonna take k more strike. Is i wish jamie could commit to kamara time reggie authorship was going on but with some so you can see him calling you who can onto the page red bow in one hand cannon monster in the other just some lock in a bone box cold steve austin arms in the air. Just chuck chuck chuck. He's we we kind of jamie because he's retired the other options we've got all them are run for these only. What kim semester villa donate cow luring. Danny ings patrick. Bamford tammy abraham straightaway. I'm going to line through. Tommy abraham just don't think he's international quality janos medical needs to be no no and i'm also gonna along all you walking as much of a light guy and like does a finnish doesn't the that goes through so it means we are looking to take two from bamford. Donna cow lillian danny ings. Right now right now all right now oriented like chemical breath of things isn't score does isn't really doing things so i think looking as you leave him in england us false. Whether you're is that he is not going on the plane so he got on the plane and we always say d. Cma about the deer on things consider is the ings as is has some international experience unconsidering both him and found food and neither them none of them all playing a european think. International experienced recounts for quite bit and one. None of them are drowning. it things doll at least are in the water. Or how does trucks and on those terms of not. He's i patrick. So do i i. So that's looking at now. I've been taking single overspend former. He's lost with a tango. But i think familiar i'd be taking cain decio bomford botts anything you of doing this with rush and stylings to those intact you could say one of them is strike. Rush has played in the striker role on you. So what we say and we just take we take cain and we take dc l. And we then take mount sterling in russia the mining mining concern really is the if we take seven of those attack. Food is then not gonna. They're not gonna play with play for two three one. You wanna you just to take the buckets source. We have but with playing faulty three. One u You really could come one goalie. And then twenty to attack him mcclelland's we do that. We can put any seven rightback's but that's what we was going to say about nothing for one four one four one four one does have those two centuries i on the to wiedeman enough from all on strike of can use the we can use off to minutes in west of birmingham and blue box outside if we try to use to women in four four It would just come through crowd in the so we're going to try and allow the go outside. So it leaves gaps as well. Doesn't it doesn't hold him and more than likely that holding me to filter will be handled. Who's not i. don't see him as that. Hold him food. He's genuine sentiment. Who leave us explosive. Which is why we have decided against four one four one and we've gone forty three one. I'm on. I'm going to put on the block here with gonna take bamford and we're gonna take mountain sterling and we're gonna leave rochford on the reserve list. I wouldn't take our take. Oh so what are we gonna watch. Mason mason show suits on trouble. I started today when they need to go get a couple. Small said it's all night and He wanna penalties. he's also i think he's about better center attack in most folks oshawa both. I would have made both of them. The ten chances to score go hit. I think russia will cohen hurricane well hurricane drops in slot wrong by hikes. Take him standing okay. Let's do it so we were up serandon going. That's tough. that's tough any injury. Sterling is the first one and so on very quickly because this is gone on longer than we said it would although not surprised. We are going for three goalkeepers in nick. Pope jordan pickford called. Also we all go for to write box in kieran trip. An trent. i said that right. Trent alexander auto forty five. I can't even get the name right. We got with trent. Everyone we're going.

"The Late Edition is brought to you in association with Arrow Electric's guiding innovation forward. Arrow. `electronic. Thousand Nine, hundred, eighty, five as a shop on new. York. City's radio row. In a new golden age of communications and connection I rose founder Morris Goldberg recognized that selling and distributing technology served a greater purpose. It allowed more people to access and benefit from technology. Since then. Has worked tirelessly to expand the possibilities new technologies offer by sharing that knowledge and helping people and businesses push forward. It's a deep understanding of technology and people that feel the passion of the team our to elevate the quality of life through avation. Iro Elektron ix making the possible practical. Jiminy confirms that the Russian opposition figure Alexei Navalny who is receiving treatment in Berlin. Hospital was poisoned with NAVA chalk nerve agent. Back to the office, we'll ask whether a battle is brewing between the UK government and the Bank of England's on whether employees should return to that desks and the moderators of the three televised presidential debates are announced will ask how moderate moderator must be in a polarized political time Monaco's editors tackle those topics today on the late edition here on. MONOCLE. Twenty Four. Had Low, there and a very warm. Welcome you to the Late Edition Today here on Monaco Twenty four on this Thursday. The third of September I'm Thomas Lewis here in Toronto and joining us today all monocle twenty, four, th Fernando Gustavus Echo under custodian. Macho lowry, where we're here from both of them in a moment. But first, let's head to Germany, which is confirmed that Russian opposition leader Alexander. Valley was poisoned with a chunk nerve agent Germany's Chancellor Angela Merkel made the announcement stating that Mr Navalny had been the victim of attempted murder and the world would now be looking to Russia's authorities for answers. The Kremlin has dismissed the allegations well on today's edition of the globalist, the commentator Mark Galliotti explained. Why NAVA Chalk has become the weapon of choice in the tax such as this in recent years, I think it shouldn't somewhere because exactly it's becomes something of a signature agent. If you want to kill someone, there are a lot cheaper easier or more certain ways of doing it. As we saw when, for example, another opposition leader Nemtsov was gunned down in the middle of Moscow few years back. When you use poison, you've also often got an eye to the theater of it. You want to be able to denied have any responsibility, but with a sly little wink that Morris says, but you know we did it anyway, this is as much as anything else a warning to others as the tackle Novelli. Mark, Galeotti while joining us now is multiple twenty four reese James. Reese thanks very much for being with us. Today. You've been following this story closely now we heard mark that talking about the the performance if you like of this kind of poisoning, why does Russia think in broad terms they cannot. So brazenly well, quite simply tell us thanks for having me is that they can. Before and they can do it again I mean I've been actually research in this for the markle minute for tomorrow morning and I've been looking back some of the the more high profile poisonings in recent Russian history, the Bulgarian playwright Georgy, Markov was killed quite. on the streets of London with an umbrella tip containing voice in Nineteen, seventy eight. There were very few recriminations and every move remember as well. The the poison environmentally Janko he was poisoned using radioactive polonium in two thousand and six diner in hospital bed in London and there were very few recrimination. Russia actually does this mean European Union talk staff in the United States often talked tough with Russia when there are these types of poisonings actually very little happens or changes. And as you say that the pressure, the outrage can be p one thing from outside Russia but the poisoning of Alexina valmy happened on Russian soil does Russia. Therefore thing fee the actors who are engaging in this kind of thing. Do you think has kind of sense of immunity therefore that we can do this and there's nothing that anyone else can do about kids? Well, I think possibly and I think the other really interesting thing about this is the actual use of. Novacek which Mark Galeotti was talking about in that clip you played there. This is sitting on acuity arraigned, and obviously we were speaking to Dr Chris Smith on the briefing literally and he was explaining the is deadly evening tiny doses but the problem is is actually the you need to actually receive toxic dose of it to die. So is not certain it will kill you it could may mu it could actually disabled or could actually mean you're actually okay and you spend a short time in hospital you're actually fine after receiving this dose. So I think that's part of it. I think it's partly the theater and it's also the fact that. The very use of Nava chalk in itself is not necessarily likely to kill you. It may be intended to maim rather than than to actually assassinate. While Reese Jane's pretty and to help you with us on the program today, and as we mentioned, you can read more about this on the plight of Alexina Valmy and tomorrow's edition of the Monaco minutes just had to Monaco dot com forward slash minute reese. Thank you very much indeed while next year on the late edition had to the UK where the country central bank the Bank of England has suggested that a mass return to offices in Britain may not be possible despite the UK government's desire to see employees return to that desks while to explain a little more the economist and financial analyst at Disney macy's spoke to us on the globalist little today. Of course, last week, we saw the UK government moving from encouraging people to go to work to almost taking on building torn because workers are not returning to officers as quickly as the government would like. Now, this announcement route the sentiment from the Bank of England I think will. Be. Supportive. As you governments will see it because the Bank of England us says that with social distancing covid safety guidelines won't be possible to use of space in the way that we use tape. Disney may see the financial harmless speaking to us a little earlier today. Financiero to bring you back in here. What do you make of this tension is building now by the Bank of England, in this statement and the UK government who wants people to return to office spaces? Well, almost to be honest, it's not surprising. Think he continues at the levels of mixed. Messages from the UK government. It's ordering sitution such as the Bank of England because you know, let's be honest UK government is weak. They decided you know to pressure a little bit more the employers to tell people to come back to their their offices. I've seen the UK is behind a lot of European countries most people did return to the office. Not all of them I think there will be a few changes here and there, but it is surprising even when I look at my group of Friends of finks sometimes their companies, they don't even have date on when they expect and You know to return to the officers quite strange because schools are returning. So I mean a, you'll be quite interesting to. See as well because there are worries especially here in central London a lot of shops will be affected because people are not coming and you know this is a personal opinion of mine I. Think we should be actually very careful here because at the same time that I do believe that the working space, you know shoot change perhaps a few things here and there You know I don't think this would be good for people as well for everyone to work from home thing only very few middle-class jobs will be protacted effing levels of job insecurity will probably increase. So it's a very complex issue is not just what people say, Oh, that's the new normal. I am not sure I think we're going to have. We're going to be having this type of conversations quite a lot evening shows like this because you know there's a lot of people different views than mine as well, but it's I, it's interesting and yeah. A lot of mixed messages when he comes to the government about this. And Augusta to pick up on an idea that phanom does started. One of the big impacts of offices being empty isn't just. The life of those buildings themselves, but it's the coffee shops, the corner stores restaurants that sit in the areas that have large numbers of office buildings. Do you think this kind of tension will be through good or bad news for them as they looked to try and revive their own businesses? Do you think yeah, I mean it's tough. Isn't it? There's no doubt that there's going to be considerable fallout. Highstreet but you know we have one concern with the makeup of the highest rate with the shops that are available with the services that are provided for, and you have to take a look sudden at London's high streets and think well, actually things were going wrong way beyond covid nineteen. I mean. It's kind of much repeated factor. There are more pret- Amman Jay's on borough, High Street than are in Wales or the same amount which kind of gives you a sense of how metropolitan high streets, how metropolitan economies have been resentencing focused around a few different key services that are provided full because of the demand created. By these Omni's of white collar workers who Rousseau having to commute for many is every day traveling long distances to come in, which has a knock on impact on their own quality of life. It takes money away from suburban normal regional centers. So I don't think it's really fair to say that this problem started with Corona virus I think is probably something that's been there from the get go the difficulty is going to be balancing. You know short term short to medium-term solutions as finance said, we're speaking from a position of real privilege insofar as much colored seemed to be lesser risk know it's easier to work from home. In our role or if you're an analyst or if you're in an office environment working on a computer where you can use remote working technologies to connect to your team than it is if you'll cleaner or if you're providing a service that white collar office workers need so so it is a position of privilege and the tension as I say comes in how we can simaltaneously perhaps rehabilitate the highest rate perhaps look at new models more. Sustainable models that provide greater economic security for a broader range of individuals working in different businesses that may be breathe life back into communities that have really suffered as a consequence of a number of the developments in our working lives that have taken place over recent decades, how we can balance that against in the medium short to medium-term, making sure that the thousands of people were employed by organizations like Peterman. Jay are catered for looked after. An. It's a row tension. It's. It's a real difficult thing because on the one hand. You do have an opportunity to pops reform how we live to reappraise it at least to live a bit more slowly even by then on the other hand, you have a lot of people her her under threat by this. So to me that seems like the most important tension to be navigating I'm one that's much more worthwhile than simply urging people to get back to work you know in the UK, there's been a kind of Mina outcry. After an organization, I think is dental. Posted an advertisement on the chew. It's kind of Pastiche of the famous choose life monologue from trainspotting if you remember that, but it's about as demoralizing as it gets it's a kind of very, very perfunctory list of all of the different parts of working life the norm for many people working in offices across Places like Manchester London in the UK hearing an alarm putting on a tie carrying a handbag says accidentally replying it kind of trying to appeal to the of the emotional attachment that people have to the workplace but actually people have pointed out its list of miserable things that everyone has to suffer in order to make across. So I think there is. An appetite for change I also don't necessarily agree that we should suddenly stopped working from home just because we can because I think it becomes difficult to collaborate all of this to me speaks to an opportunity to change how we live to change the makeup of our high-street to work out maybe a better model for the future and that seems to be. POPs could be focusing its energy on that on providing for the people who had gone to be impacted in the short and medium-term by the coronavirus pandemic by the downton rather than just trying to drive people back to this kind of business as usual status quo, the already had its problems. While we'll have much more discussion for you on the future of the High Street and on the future of office spaces to that's coming up in the next edition, the entrepreneurs magazine, which will be out in a few weeks time. Well, finally here on the late edition in the United States yesterday the moderators for the three televised presidential debates I'm the single vice presidential debate were announced Chris Wallace host of Fox, News, Sunday, Steve Scully of C. Span and Kristen Welker chief White, house correspondent for NBC News will moderate the presidential debates while Susan Page of USA Today will moderate the. Vice Presidential debate between Mike Pence. On Camera Harris Fernando the US televised debates, the presidential debates, a central part of the process in which voters in the US choose the president what do you think given? The long history of the the presidential debates makes a good moderator. Well I. Think more recently One thing that I don't like to see a moderator is when they are aggressive I think this has been a trend at least from the countries that I followed the debates in the UK the US in Brazil you know I think you know I see the present the almost. Filling proud of themselves. They tricked you know the the politician but I find this particularly annoying because I think it kind of. Changes the story becomes all about Dan. So in a way I don't like that. But of course, I'm not saying they should be nice friendly and just keep smiling I finished should be firm and strict, and that's very hard to do I mean it's very easy for me to give this tips. But you've mentioned there I mean the moderators are in the first debate will be late September with Chris Wallace I. Mean He's a good example of a moderator Chris Wallace from Fox News. I mean he interviewed trump quite a few times in he asked know a difficult questions. In fact, he was the one who did the last presidential debate between Hillary and trump back in two thousand sixteen and he largely I think people praised his performance but you know it is an art Thomas. It is very much an art in and I think like me you love watching those debates I mean and Americans do as well. They usually have you know huge audiences So yeah, I think the tone it can't be aggressive and I. Think we as years gone by they're becoming more and more aggressive. Perhaps it's a new training journalism. I Dunno I. I am not the biggest fan of that. Unto Guston I spoke to Chris Wallace actually Monica magazines. November issue just before the announcement was made yesterday. And he spoke about the appearance, the Fernando Mention there in two thousand sixteen when he was the first Fox News host ever to have hosted been invited to host a presidential debate. There was a very famous moment in that final debate where Hillary Clinton Donald Trump going at each other and he interjects by saying excuse me I'm not a potted plant here, which I thought was a pretty good line He was saying to me that this sort of art of the moderator as Fernando mentioned that. Is that you kind of oft, the debates over that you kind of view is to be sort of scratching their heads and trying to remember who the moderator was that you really want the onset of the politicians to sung through a not the moderator him or herself how difficult to balance do you think is interesting? Yeah I mean that's an interesting suggestion is he's kind of putting putting the role of the moderator in the same position as an umpire or referee and a sporting matches you know. Boxing match to people slugging away. Don't necessarily notice the face of the REF that. But. I. Think it's a little bit disingenuous to be on stone. You I mean. Ninety one I think ratifying the journalist for whom ego hasn't played at least a small part in their decision to pursue journalism you know there's lots of jobs you can do way you find out about subjects where you write reports on them and where your name isn't attached whether or not then placed in in a public forum. So I'm not sure I completely by his assertion that he wants to be forgotten with that said. I think that probably is not to I think it relies on as finance suggests a firm character. I personally have slightly soft spot for combative interviews and moderation purely because you know I was brought up on a diet of people like Jeremy Paxman who something of a kind of archetype in the aggressive interviewer stakes here in the UK I do think it's a China I think it's a bigger challenge. With candidates like President Donald. Trump I mean I was thinking about that as well and I was thinking well, you know is is, is it going to be the case I suspect so that that this is going to be more personality driven than perhaps things would have been in the past because of Donald trump because he kind of precipitates that ah see that's the that's the energy brings brings into a discussion and that's the way people react to. It the way people need to react to it in order to be able to involved themselves in interface with him they have to speak his language, but I do think that he is an effective personality politics rather than a 'cause. Again, you know not to sound too much like a broken record but I think that he is the product of political order that that came to him. He didn't spring out of nowhere. Near what pundits may have said in two thousand sixteen so I think that motoritss is going to have to take that into account. There's going to be a desire among the more moderate moderators to Hark back to maybe a more gentlemanly age of politics which I think probably, they're going to struggle to do because the president will run roughshod over any attempt to do that, and so I think actually probably they do need to be slightly domineering probably that will need to personality and that that will need to be a bit of SAS a bit of aggression in order to in order just get A. Word in and make sure that the president's opponent Cantu well. Okay St Macci Larry an Fernando Cousteau paycheck announcing what I'm afraid to say we have time for today's program that big thanks to the two of you onto reese James's well for joining us on the program today I'll studio manager in London today with David, Stephens a big thanks to him as a ways to the late edition returns at the same time tomorrow that for more news more discussion and much more to do you stay with us here at Monaco Twenty Four.

"You're listening to Molecules House few first broadcast on the nineteenth of September two thousand nine hundred on monocle twenty four. This is Monaco's house view coming up today. The Iranians have signaled to them with his calibrated attack. We can mess up your future economic plans anytime we want. Saudi Arabia versus Iran Rom the latest on the escalating clash between the two regional rivals my guests holly digress and Tim Marshall. We'll discuss that and the days of the news including at least thirty people were killed in another bomb attack in Afghanistan. We'll ask whether the US really has opposable plan creating lasting peace in the country plus why is Boris Johnson so befuddled by the public and just the excitement this is Asia's first rugby well confidence in Japan. You know you really feel it. While the Rugby World World Cup matters to more than just hosts Japan. I'm Andrew Mullahs manacles house starts now welcome to the show and joined today by Holly Digress Nonresident Fellow at the Atlantic Council and editor of the Atlantic Council's Iran source and to Marshall Former diplomatic editor. 's It's gone US author and editor of the what and the why dot com we will start with Saudi Arabia which appears to be trying to talk self into some sort of retaliation for the weekends drone and missile strikes onto oil facilities. Saudi Arabia blames Iran Iran blames Hutu rebels in Yemen who have indeed claimed responsibility but they're also heavily backed by Iran Ron so the difference may be somewhat academic. US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is in Saudi Arabia and has described the attacks as an act of war a phrase not not traditionally followed by but these things happen never mind holly first of all active war. Is that fair enough characterization of what occurred on Saturday today well. I think if I started you have to remember that Secretary of State. Mike pompeo is the United States Secretary of State. He's not the the Saudi Arabian minister and I think think that making that kind of claim saying that the United States should go to war on behalf of Saudi Arabia which is something that US President Donald Trump tweeted the other day I. I think it's it's also worth noting that US President Donald Trump has actually been walking back on his statements and it seems that he's de escalating things by saying that he's going to sanction Iran although there's not really much left to sanction the country so I think what Palmdale maybe saying one thing but trump is saying another thing in this case but we won't come back to trump's trump's attitude on this which is curious in some respects and yet in keeping with his previously expressed views on the region Tim. I I wanted to talk about Saudi Arabia's case against Iran. They have advanced several tell you bowl full of bits of drone and missile and said these are all the rainiest Indian. Are you persuaded by Saudi Arabia's case so far yes for a number of reasons one. It is true that the Saudi missile defense systems were pointing south off towards Yemen so that's probably how they got through because they didn't probably come from Yemen. It's unlikely that the WHO is got the kit and the technological know oh how to carry out something like that drones yes cruise missiles pinpoint the went right through the very center of the terminal targets Saudi ran has the motive because they're calibrating their attacks and they think they can get away with it and they may have got away with this and then the the actual stuff that they laid out I I'm swayed it off it hub this the response to continue the previous question and has not been bellicose and I don't think they're going to retaliate yet. Mister Peres get-out-clause is the same as Mr Trump's United States wasn't attacked and the last bit the Jerusalem not enough people are concentrating on. Is You probably know Aramco the Saudi State Oil Company is going to refloat percentages pitches of it next year. It's valued at up to one point five trillion dollars that money that's going to come from the flotation and he's supposed to pay for the twenty to your economic policy that the young leader has announced the Iranians of signal to them with his calibrated attack. We can mess up your future. Economic plans anytime we want oil price went to twenty dollars plus but also the refinery was massively damaged now. I think this is the last last chance this is the last time Iran can do something before there will be a military response but at the moment the response looks like Holly Said Sanctions Cyber. I Britannic quite probably Connecticut's act as it's known military attack you can't really out yet but not for several days yeah because of the United Nations General Assembly next week holy on that particular thought and going back to what you were saying earlier about Donald Trump if this was Iran and the late the length of possible suspects aspect is a fairly short one but if it was Iran might they have been working on the assumption that from what we can glean so far of Donald Trump. He doesn't appear appear especially interested in war. They might have been thinking back to June when they knocked down an American drone again if we're buying Donald Trump's version of events. US planes planes were rare born on their way to retaliate and he called them back around thinking that Donald Trump is if you like a bit of a soft touch. I think you're absolutely right on that point. That's actually been well known amongst the Iranian government officials. We've heard that from President Hassan Rohani and Iranian Foreign Minister Mama Judge votes theory that trump trump does not want war but what they are continuously pointing at is what very calls the B. team which is Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu no longer national national security adviser John Bolton Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman of Saudi Arabian Crown Prince Mohammad bin Zayed of the emerets so I think the they have have this understanding and if we really to look back for a moment like why would Iran do this. The fact of the matter is that the United States withdrew from a multilateral agreement agreement in May two thousand eighteen and essentially in the view of the Iranians declared economic warfare on the country by deciding this that they're going to basically he put an oil embargo in the country no longer allow the country to sell its oil and the Iranians had continuously threatened while we're going to close the Strait of Hormuz. They never said how they were. We're GONNA do it but they've obviously made it more precarious to travel through the Strait of horror moves in the past few months they've taken down a US drone and now if we assume they may have also been partaking in these oil-tanker. Excuse me these oil facilities in Saudi Arabia so for them. They're they're trying to send a message here. Did the United States that we're willing to go all the way with this. If you're going to continue with this maximum pressure policy holy doger's and Tim Marshall would be back in just a moment but I hear is monocle Daniel h with some of the other stories. We're following today. Thanks Andrew Israel's prime minister. Benjamin Netanyahu has called on his main rival for the job. The centrist and former general benny gaunt's to join him in forming a government of national unity. The change of strategy reflects Netanyahu's weakened physician following the country's inconclusive inclusive general election three former executives at the firm that operated the Fukushima nuclear plant had been cleared of professional negligence by a court in Tokyo. You was the only criminal case to arise out of the disaster. The plant which was operated by the Tokyo Electric Power Company was hit by huge soon now me back in two thousand eleven and Time magazine has published a photo of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau wearing brown face at a private gala back in two thousand one. Mr Trudeau says he deeply regrets his actions actions. The emergence of the photo comes during an election campaign for the Prime Minister Canada votes for its new leader next month now back to you. Andrew thank you done so you're listening to Monaco's house view. I'm Andrew Bullet he tim Marshall and Holly Daggers and let's look now at Afghanistan where the Taliban continued to press the case for a resumption of peace talks talk spice staging gruesome reminders of the alternative at least thirty people have been killed and at least ninety five injured by a truck bomb near hospital in Calicut the capital Zabul Zabul province in the country's south. It's one of the worst of a recent offensive of near daily similar attacks by the Taliban elsewhere the Taliban chief negotiator show Muhammad Summit Abbas stomachs. I emphasized that the doors were open should the US wish to continue talking president. Donald Trump declared the talks dead earlier this month following being a previous attack team. Is there the faintest chance that the Taliban of all people were. Perhaps not negotiating an entirely good faith. Never let it be said well this is the faction was probably negotiating. We we should remind the Taliban is not by any means a monolith and this I think so surprised at most of the coverage the coverage keeps saying the Taliban the the people negotiating it's moon a Bharata Moon Obama Dr his own faction which is within the quarter Taliban faction the Quetta Taliban functioning only part of the wider Taliban and so the Taliban is not negotiating the United States a section of it is there are other sections of the Taliban which realized that they could be able to get a military victory all the way into Kabul at some point. If the Americans go away which is why they're not going away yet and so I I think it's quite probable. The negotiations will swing back at some point with that faction of the Taliban and the Americans in that faction of the Taliban can edge towards that peace agreement. Which of course is a good thing but anytime you cover you got to point out that there are other sections of the Taliban is GonNa say no. We think we can win you know and this uptick in violence is precisely because of that. The Taliban killed a number of people just before four th the agreement after Alma the US envoy suggested there was going to be a deal that killed a bunch of people including an American staff sergeant and trump could hardly hardly be seen to invite the Taliban over when it just killed American staff sergeant and a now this new wave violence because the hardliners think no we. We don't particularly want talks. We can keep going so you have to frame it like it's a faction of the Taliban holy dynamic. Tim Outlines there what he's basically underpinning all of this even if we do recognize that the Taliban is not a unified monolith that all with one mind and speaks with one voice. Would they have a general general sense that the United States has long since lost interest in this war in Afghanistan really doesn't want to be there anymore and if they just wait them out they will get the country back in June. Of course I think that's very valid point mean known as America's forgotten war and longest war and we have to remember the US President Donald Trump is just in there with these talks because he kind of wants to make the ultimate dealmaker. He's done this with North Korea. He's hoping to do this with Iran Ron. He almost did this with the Taliban. Just a few days before the nine eleven anniversary those would have been weird optics. Oh it would have been awful. I mean his own administration. Including cluding Vice President Mike Pence said it was a bad idea and I think it actually was to his advantage that didn't work out because I don't think that it would of lead to anything but I think he was trying to put on this whole Camp David Accord look where he's brought the Egypt the Taliban and the Afghan government together and and he's made some sort of deal but looking back at the bigger picture here. That's the Taliban knows that the US really wants especially trump himself so if anything these these breese this uptick in violence is kind of signaling while we're going to keep this going and maybe they're going to actually leave the country sooner and so that's that's something also consider as well and given everything. That's been happening over the past few months. I would say that the Taliban has the upper hand in a situation knowing full well that the US wants to leave Afghanistan. The fourteen thousand troops left from a high of about eight hundred thousand. The old saying is You've got the watchers but we've got the time. We're going to wait you out and then exactly what's going on. my. I'm last time I was down in. Helmand province was good for years ago. When I realized that the Brits the Americans we're GONNA withdrew and my view was within four. This is what I'm wrong. Within four years the Alabama taken almost the whole country except the capital. I maybe a couple years out because they now control about fifty four percent of territory. The capital is strong and say it's not safe but you know they're we're not. GonNa take it and the best case scenario for the Americans to get out there. Pretend they're going out with dignity. Leave enough special forces in a trained Afghan army to to hold the perimeter fence around Kabul and then pretend that it's still the capital of united country more on that thought holly at this point what because Kabulis not merely the capital of Afghanistan it is also a capital inhabited by what he is the legitimate elected government of Afghanistan at at this point what do does the United States oh that government and the people who voted for it and the people who work for it because if the United States withdraws withdraws from Afghanistan completely. It's not going to go well for Afghanistan's. Actual elected government is not at all I mean even these talks with the Taliban was actually done without the government's involvement and they did a lot of a lot of the time they weren't even sure what was going on even with these camp this Camp Camp David Talk that they were considering. I mean it was almost political. Suicide of Ghani didn't go so he right before an Afghan election coming up so for them. They felt like they were it kind of put in this corner where we have to do whatever the United States say says because we need to keep them happy but it doesn't necessarily mean that what's happening with the Taliban is actually gonNa lead to something something and the last time a government in Kabul that would sponsored by an outside power when the outside power went away which is the Russians and I think was ineligible. Bulla was the president Najibullah ended up being strung upside down from a lamp post by the Taliban that is quite possibly really the fate of this current government if the Americans just run Halfa Leather for the door which and that would be seen as an abandonment condiment it would be seen as a betrayal it would be seen certainly as leaving without dignity and a loss like I said they want to come out with. Some sort of dignity pretended school drill that being the case just finally on this subject holly on the Taleban being doffed in not giving America that that fig-leaf if you you will that allows America to claim we did our best we made a difference we have improved things somewhat and now we're leaving well for them. the they were there are actually willing to talk with the United States I think but they told the US that we would not come to Camp David until actual agreement happens because for them. It was also problematic. Let's go to the United States the our enemy and like let's meet with the president but we don't have a deal so I I think even they understood that that was not a good talk to the Kabul government because of course before the Americans invaded the Taliban was the government so they're saying this is a puppet government went you know why would we chief in ourselves talking to them and so the Yanks and talent ban in all its factions have got to come together. I think there will be movement within the next few months. Okay well finally on news panel to British politics and we will pause here for British listeners to roll into whimpering fetal hubbell's while deliberations resume at the Supreme Court as to whether Britain's government was within its rights to suspend Britain's parliament irritable eurocrats have set a two-week deadline for Boris Johnson to submit to some sort of actual plan for replacing the Irish backstop we will come presently to Boris Johnson's recent attempt to win the hearts and minds of the British public but we should look at the politics of this first Tim do you you think any such plan exists is their plan that goes to another school and that's why we haven't met yet. Yes you do think there's a plan. I think as a plan I think it will work is another matter entirely also that deadline is very artificial. It's the Prime Minister of Finland and the Prime Minister of France that have come up with the right what you've got till the end of September. We want something in writing. It's not the EU that has said that so it's it's that's a bit flexible perhaps but whether the plan such as it is is solid enough to be written down at some point and presented in text because this is you know it has to be in text so that the you can go through line by line and negotiate everything that is in it. It appears to be some way from that and it's part of the hard boiled chicken poker. That's being played which will be played right up to the last hour of the European Union summit but which Britain will attend in in the middle of next month. I'm trying to picture in my head. What a game of how ball chicken poker with look if actually played holly. Do you get the sense that may be the UK is betting on the fact at this point that the U is so fed up that they will agree to almost anything just to get this over with and it's really hard to say I have no. I'm not a British I citizen. I haven't been following the story line long enough by I think they are frustrated at what's happening. It's been going on for a long time. Manet think there is some sense that this is this has been going on for far too long but I I also am under the impression that the EU hopes that somehow the cooler heads will prevail. Maybe this brexit thing won't happen and everybody can go off into the distance being very happy with everything. It's cheery thought it isn't going to happen too. We should look at Boris Johnson's travails as today he visited wits Cross Hospital of a ten minute walk from where I live really fans in D- well he may have done it wasn't but he he was accosted by a member of the public and he responded bafflingly badly he he repeat completely flummoxed. He attempted to reassure the gentleman that this wasn't a press jolie that there were no press and the clearly walls because when there are no prison and he gestured towards the literal cameras bizarre it was all extremely peculiar and it's extremely because one one of the selling points of Boris Johnson was supposed to be that he's able to connect with the public that he's able to talk to people and I confess that I'm surprised by how bad he has has been at because I I've interviewed him at least once. I've met him socially on several occasions. When you make the guy whatever else you think of him. He is very affable and charming and funny and agreeable agreeable as you've you've written yourself in your recent book available in all good stores. Why is he so bad at it now that he's prime minister. I Yeah I think it's seriously he he he is used to being affable and people being and falling for that charm and so when they don't fall for that. Chow maybe he doesn't have a plan B but let me also Robak a little bit there was the last week he was in doncaster. I STA and someone came up cast castigated him for four because he was a Britain should remain in the and he was getting castigated and that went on on bulletins book don't voted seventy four percent to leave and the local media and he cares more about the local media the crisis PA The strategy didn't big big that up they big dope bar came a town and was mobbed to more briefly when he walked out on the the press conference with look the prime minister. The Guardian headline was Johnson humiliated by looks and big that that may well be the case may be true but it doesn't matter what the Guardian said because the fifty two percent of the population that voted leave its view of that would be Weldon Alden bars standing up to these johnny foreigners sticking it to them and doing the right thing by just saying. I'm not playing your silly game the last one this is more difficult yesterday's hospital. The man was shouting at him in a hospital now. The man's child was there and he said he wasn't getting proper care. He then revealed. Labor activist is if that makes him not caring that was nonsense but it is context. You'll it's contextual because for the same reason the seventeen point two million the people that vote leave. We'll think well. Why is this man shouting shouting at bars in a hospital. It doesn't matter anymore. It doesn't matter the that he he sometimes gets tackled. We're beyond that sort of politics as trump said I can shoot someone on Fifth Avenue and still got elected. It's almost as if people see exactly what they want want to see. 'em Holly Boris Johnson to his minor. Credit has since tweeted that the the champion the hospital was entirely within his rights to make his views known to the prime minister. There's wages he pays etc is there at least if we're trying to win down news panel on an upbeat note something optimistic and something cherish -able in the fact that it's still possible four four members of the public to bowl up to the prime minister and give them any full because this it's been a while since this has happened to a US president unthinking well well. I I think trump gets it literally every time he steps out of the White House I mean he gets it for four press at this point. Am I think it's important that the public like express its grievances or Hackel the president or meme or prime minister and I think the day that public citizen sees me a private citizen. Listen doesn't do that. I think that's where the worry lies that they're they're. They don't care enough to express their grievances or demand a chain or detention to an important topic of of the day or time holy daggers to Marshall. Thank you both in a moment rugby World Cup of which begins today in Japan. You're listening to articles house view. Do stay stay tuned. This is molecules house view. I'm Andrew Muller now. Review from editorial floor Monocle Twenty Reese James Examines why the success of the Rugby World Cup which starts today matters to more besides just Japanese rugby fans the one thousand nine hundred nine rugby World Cup one of the world's biggest and most prestigious sporting events is getting underway in Japan represents a massive if soft power killed for the country not only is the elite torment never been held there before but it is also the first time the ropy will cap is being hosted by an Asian nation. So what should we expect. He's multiples Tokyo Bureau chief funerals well. I think we've got some very enthusiastic support. That's for sure. I don't know if you were following following. The training match that Wales held in Kitakyushu and fifteen thousand people turned up just for the training a Monday morning. I think it was a big surprise to the team. They were up C. thrilled and the crowd sang the Welsh national anthem. I mean it was quite a spectacle and I think that's going to be recognized up and down the country in a lot of enthusiasm awesome very dedicated fancier rugby. Is You know it's a niche sport but I think just the excitement that this is Asia's first rugby well companies in Japan. You really feel it and you know you see the streets. Even in Tokyo Austria has got the banners up and you're seeing pictures of everywhere at the moment and you mentioned that the tournament is taking place go across the country. Can you tell us about some of the host cities yes and there are twelve venues and what they've tried to do is really spread them up and down. Japan so that the whole country gets a you know a bit of the excitement a nine. There are some very interesting ones that come I she which was a place that was really destroyed in the earthquake. Tsunami in two thousand eleven die is one of the venues which is very exciting. I think there and I think that's quite an emotional venue because obviously you know being two very very tough times. Now she the final in order the Rugby World Cup we held in Yokohama. I think a lot of people are hoping that the national the New National Stadium which will be ready for the Olympics would be ready for the Rugby World Cup. It's not quite ready so the final will be in Yokohama which is an amazing stadium and apps the enormous so you know. I think up and down Japan. This is going to be a lot of interest and I think they've really tried to to share out so that the whole country is involved and this is going to be quite different kind of cultural experience for people can go into Japan to follow ropy. What can and people expect? What will they be in for? One of the things that made me small was about tattooing which became a huge issue. I mean anyone who follows pretty much. Any sport. Now knows that most athletes are upset. You covered helped in tattoos. These days tattoos still a very tricky subject in Japan and people don't like to see them in James. They don't WanNa see them in hot springs. If you have a tattoo in a swimming pool for example you have to cover up where vast and the rugby plays happiness that when they're going to places like gyms or hot springs please cover up oversee you see on the page on the day they can. They will reveal their tattoos but you know they just when they're out and about could they please kind of adhere to the cultural preferences in Japan although having said at that moment sense said for the six weeks tournament they can relax those rules but just it's up to the owners of the hot springs to say whether they can allow people in and that was miracles. Tokyo Bureau Chief Funeral Wilson. Let's hope she keeps it. Tattoos covered up over the course of the next six weeks now. The Rugby World Cup of course comes to Japan keeps one eye on next Olympic Games. Here's David Warren who is the UK's ambassador in Tokyo between two thousand eight and two thousand twelve. I'm sure that it will be a trial run for the Olympics. This is the largest Japanese highsted event since the football well Cup many years ago and that was shared with the Republic of Korea so the Japanese will certainly see this nationwide World World Cup tournament as an opportunity to demonstrate that they have the facilities that have the organization they have the managerial ability to pull off if one of the world's big iconic thence and they will have the Olympics of twenty twenty very much in mind as they demonstrate all those skills and do you think the both these events help put Japan onto the sporting map not just on the managerial map but the splitting up of course Japan has been on the sporting map before they hosted the Olympics in nineteen sixty four and I mentioned the football World Cup which was in the early years of the last decade so they've been on the international sporting map for some time but the Rugby World Cup is important for two reasons firstly. They'd been trying to get this World Cup for many years was the third attempt I think at which they it had attempted a source to host the event and then finally successful and rugby itself is a sport where the Japanese have grown in international national profile over the last few decades not least in the two thousand fifteen world cup in the UK when they beat South Africa in Brighton memorable match and suddenly will realize that the Japanese team London Japanese team who were forced to be ready with Gracia award you just the upset of all time in the history of sports. What do you think it does for Japan's brand on an international scale well. Does it do Shinzo Aubain his government well well looking at it in a non-political sense. Those of us who are friends of Japan spent our lives living in Japan visiting Japan and who know the efficient efficient organization of Japanese life we know also the the warmth of the Japanese personality we can see that this is going to be an opportunity for the Japanese needs to demonstrate what they call a multi she and that is a sense of hospitality a sense of welcoming people from around the world for major international event and all the signs things are that this is going to be a very powerful theme of the tournament. It's a nationwide tournament so that visitors to Japan rugby supporters us from all the various teams. We'll see the whole of the country. The first English match I think on this coming Saturday will be up in Sapparo in the Northern Ireland and the our stadia all over the country and all four islands and indeed in the area affected by the terrible earthquake tsunami eight years ago so it's an opportunity unity to send a very strong sense of the Japanese brand of warmth of hospitality of welcoming across the country to an international audience from Shinzo Abe's point of view. It's also very important. He's been prime minister for nearly seven years. He's still in a strong and pretty unassailable domestic political position. He doesn't have very strong political opposition. He doesn't have an obvious successor people beginning to talk about one or two possible names so he will see this as an opportunity to demonstrate that the country that he leads politically is a country that has a very strong and attractive international profile but although politics and sport are a little next in Japan as in many other countries and they're a senior politicians who've played an important role in developing Japan's and rugby capacity. This is a sporting tournament not a series of political events and I think the Japanese will be sensitive to the need to keep those uh-huh Issue Separate David Warren. Thanks for coming in a lot. It seems rests on the fortunes of Japan's will be will and with the Olympics just around the corner. The tournament's organizers and the country's leaders will be hoping that it's a resounding success the monocle twenty four. I'm reese James that that was reese James and that he's all for today.

Monocle 24: The Globalist

58:22 min | 2 years ago

Monday 17 June

"You're listening to the globalist first broadcast on the seventeenth of June two thousand and nineteen on monocle twenty four the globalist in association with UBS. Hello. This is the globalist coming to you live from Madeira house in London. This is Emma Nelson and very warm. Welcome to today's program coming up in the next sixty minutes protesters take to the streets of Hong Kong despite the suspension of a controversial extradition. Little. We'll examine what could happen next near facts on the rest of the region also coming up for years after he launched his first electoral campaign, Donald Trump will have a second stab at the presidency. This time he says, he'll be better prepared plus as one of the oldest surviving tongues in Europe Kamali 'cause withstood, the linguistic changes that were bought by both the country's Roman any congress. The languages company doing something of a Rene zones, and we will celebrate Welsh. Plus, we look at whether the world of a ward salmon is, is saying goodnight to its hosts all that plus the Monday papers and the latest business headlines to that's all ahead right here on the globalist life from London. It's no more than a million people. Many of them dressed in black took to the streets of Hong Kong this weekend. They protested not only for the scrapping of the controversial extradition law. But for the resignation of the city's leader, Carrie Lam, MS lamb had offered to suspend the law which would allow suspects on a case by case basis to be sent to the Chinese mainland for trial. But this wasn't enough. When in the moment, we'll hear from the former diplomat. John Everard and also our Hong Kong bureau chief, James chambers will join us on the line from Beijing. But first, carrying it three from Monaco's Hong Kong bureau was out speaking to the protesters, and here's some of what they had to say to. But not just pulse. We still have faith in Hong Kong. We want peace and we want our freedom of speech. So you guys out to the streets today. We're Hong Kongers where going Hong Kongers where students. This is the only home that we know and we're definitely all politically active in one way or another. So for us, it's like the extradition, Bill is something that we do not want to pass an even though they are suspension of it. We know they've done similar things article twenty three they just try to suppress something. But that doesn't mean that people are safe. And if we're going through all this trouble today, we don't want the younger generations have to go through the same thing like a few years later. We're so so, so depressed about even after someone died, but Carrie is still not saying now the yourself still angry. Do you think she's likely to resign anytime soon? I think resign gap probably I hawk though. So, but you say that hit won't even she resigned and out person to do. Also at the same post as her. I don't think he or she the next one will lessen our hopefully, I hope she or he will you. You know, you think that even the person who for next one who becomes the next chief executive, you don't think that they will they will take? I don't think so. I hope he accused. Yeah. Why did you decide to bring your whole family out today for the protests? Come up, when is the chance to do in? In case you do in the future. This, you can say you can try to what do you think the Huckabee be feeling right now, say, general, these peaceful them, and people released everyday in ingred, because there. What do you think there's likely to be a withdrawal of the Bill at this point? Do you think Kerry Lam is also going to step down? I don't know. Is it like the only only thing how? I always like a must North Island, say if the suit as that goal was arrested people's to probably still come out because those students like them really do anything. Right. They just come out, and then it's just a protest. Somehow got messed up then still, I think the intention to. To show all this. Listening to that was the former diplomat John Everard, I'm gonna call Hong Kong pitchy. James chambers. He joins us on the line from Beijing. John didn't know about you. But watching the protests yesterday, I had the feeling the that it could have got very, very nasty. But it wasn't the overwhelming feeling that we got that it was a very peaceful day. I think that's right. It looked to me very much the please received quite clear orders off to the clashes on Wednesday to not as active back down. But not to engage in any kind of confrontation those starting a neat lines were blocking certain streets, so the not all of Hong Kong could be occupied but they're taking great cat that nobody got hurt James. Do you think Beijing has been surprised by the volume of people who've decided to turn out this weekend? I think we've all been surprised because it go, you know what a difference week makes this time last week after a million people. The government in Hong Kong. And I guess in Beijing to essentially, ignore the people and the push on the gardeners, after Wednesday they started to decide to check an and I guess they thought that would be enough for the people. So the fact that, you know, they're estimate that close to two million people turned out, yesterday's double remounted people that were on the streets last week. And that's definitely records, the Hong Kong people talking about it being record anywhere in the world. So I mean it's fantastic numbers, you know, for population, seven point five million over one point four Hong Kong turned hours. And you know you talk to people lost week who didn't go to the protests and some of the reasons why they didn't want to go because they just sort of a waste of time now operating last week, proccessing, what happened on Wednesday, sing the government back down a lot more people came up because they can see the, the real reason to, to protest how much of the momentum DC think there is now. Joan. I'm just listening to the voices in Carina twos report. The words that they were using very positive hopeful that things like face in Hong Kong peace and freedom of speech things that in a in a city state, that many seeing is being, you know, more and more under the phthalate, Beijing, you quite surprised quite surprised by the language is very positive. But underlying all this, of course, is an attempt not again, Paul, too, but to prevent a negative these people defending what they already have a momentum, I think momentum is growing is clear that the many more people on the streets yesterday than the were a week ago. The organizers claiming up to two million which raises pointed out to the population, seven point five million. That's a fantastic proportion of home Kong's, total population. And I think that the mental will be be all the more because Joshua Wong the hero of the twenty fourteen umbrella movement has just been released from prison puke, Winston he just. Served his is month and it happened to be today that is released. I and you does, of course, is to tweet the Carolina should resign. She is going to be under real pressure this week, especially as the Chinese government appears to have abundant her. The people's daily editorial yesterday, strong support for the governor of Hong Kong pointedly, did not mention Carrie Lam by name, and that means only one thing, the Beijing is prepared to sacrifice her. If that's what it takes to calm things down. James in Beijing is at the impression that you get that, that the Chinese authorities a mainlander thirties, are cutting carry lamb loose, if we look at how this all came about feeling that the Beijing government busy hundred bus one of these significant actions was when the Chinese ambassador wants on the news, the UK in London, amuse nights. So basically say that, you know, this isn't legislation that Beijing wants to Hong Kong government thing, I once, once they went on the end said that lots of Terry lamb's cabin. Knit started breaking ranks and basically asking for her to suspend the Bill and then once that happened in disarray. And she looked very, very isolates. He's as John mentioned, the Chinese media is coming out, supporting the government and supporting carry lamb's decision. The very much, you know, pointing out the person who's trying to push this through. And you think that, that sets them up for a fall or indicating the ready to cut her loose? It's the fascinating to watch this from Beijing, because, you know, to foreign media, here is censored. And then you can actually watch CNN, but it's on a five minute delay. And every time any news about Hong Kong comes up the screen goes blank, and then they finish talking about I'm calling it comes back again. So I mean, they're very careful about but messages. Allows allows Khufu from you Jomon you talking about Carolina in Hong Kong policy. Well, yes, the idea that this isn't being direct from Beijing is three say, so sly laughable. Of course, Beijing has caught a close interest in what's going on. This is largely about Beijing trying to extend his power over Hong Kong and apparently, so far failing this is difficult. Climbdown Beijing, as I say prepared to throw Carolina under buses James on the IT puts it to preserve the face of seeing the on Chinese politics who's found a not this a bit too hard to by this time. So what happens next, we have carry them on the process in, not in a strong position we have an extradition door which has been suspended, but protested demanding for it permanent scrapping. And we have everybody since books in here. I suspect to the next thing that happened is the current I'm dozen deed, resign everywhere, then tries to work out what you do. The teeth is operatives resigns. I believe that under the lead of the more the Beijing has the right to simply to appoint somebody, but there will be massive calls, refresh elections and remember the whole point of the twenty fourteen the umbrella protests was that the Beijing gets to choose the shortlist of the candidates, although the election themselves of our free. I suspect that point two will be revisited, given the current movement, Hong Kong games. Do you believe that that will be the case that Beijing will have to rethink its policy of how it deals with Hongkong in its elections? The I wouldn't I wouldn't be surprised if she doesn't resign. I mean, there's a big protest off of the article twenty three legislation in two thousand three and some g while I did end up resigning three months later. But if we look at the occupy an umbrella movement into fourteen know that was disaster, as well and see why loan state on he's gonna mint on jury supposed to extremely unpopular. Everybody hated him. But he kind of got to the news, I didn't stunned again. At the end of the day jobs being chief executives of thankless task in Hong Kong, you have to try and satisfy Beijing and home, computer. I'm not just impulsively tell so if not carry lamb doing this job, it'd be someone else getting in the same trouble. So I don't think it's necessary guaranteed. That she'll be resigning. It'll be interesting to see what happens next. I think the next step will join the Bill to see if that works. But I think it's definitely a message to Beijing. But even though Hong Kong people don't have democracy. We are very prepared to vote feet when it comes to physicians, they don't like James chambers in Beijing, and John effort in medical stadia. Thank you very much indeed for joining us. Only globalist. That's a look at some of the other news stories keeping an eye on today. I looked trysofi has been restored to tens of millions of people in Argentina and Uruguay following a huge power cut the time, president mercy macrey has promised a full investigation into the blackout which was prompted by failure in an electrical grids that serves both countries Germany's far-right Alternativa feel Deutschland party has failed to win its first Merrill seat. The AFC candidate Sebastian VIP will had been viewed as the front runner of to winning the first round of voting in the city of girl. It's the CDs candidate Octavian earth sue took more than half of the votes and the center-left candidate Sandra Taurus is taken an early lead in Guatemala elections. But she doesn't have enough support to win the outright majority in the election. Run-up described by some critics, as mayhem, two other leading candidates have been barred from running from one has been arrested for conspiring to import cocaine into the US. You're listening to the globalist June. This weekend marked four years to the days Donald Trump and outs ten tended to run for the White House this week, he'll do it again. And this time he says he'll do more money, better organization, more devoted followers. Jacob para que les is an expert on US affairs. And I'm delighted to say he joined to the studio. Now. Welcome back. Jacob so four years ago, don't Trump's that he who's going to make America great again. Do you think you'll be able to draw a strong track record to prove this is the case, this time round hill? Certainly claim a strong track record. I think the main thing that he'll be able to point to is the economy which continues last month slightly disappointing job numbers notwithstanding. The economy continues to be a source of strength for him. And there are two ways of looking at that one is to say in good economies, incumbent presidents tend to get reelected on the other is to say the economy is good and yet his approval rating, despite what he claims is only about four. Eighty to forty one percent which is generally the danger zone for incumbents or anyone really facing reelection. So I think it's still there. Still, an open question as to whether he is in pole position, whether having a more sort of professional campaign will help in any case at the end of the day, the campaign still works for him. He fired three of his pollsters over the weekend for leaking apparently dated that showed him trailing. Joe Biden in a number of key. Swing states and only beating him by two points in Texas. Right. Okay. So that doesn't bode well so don't Trump from the position of power. They meet the incumbent according to those polls, does not have the front is not on the front food. No, the health warning. Of course, the show is be given is that you can go back to two thousand eleven and find polls of Mitt Romney beating Brock Obama. You can find polls of George W Bush losing for reelection at this point in two thousand and three. There are any number of historical precedent of president recovering, but what those presidents don't have is the sort of stability of low approval ratings. I mean Trump's approval rating in the time that he's been president has never gone above forty five or below thirty seven in the sort of aggregate, which is generally considered the most reliable. So whether he whether there's any upside for him whether he can build a coalition, that's actually capable of outright, winning the presidency, rather than relying on an independent candidate getting in splitting the vote meaningfully is an open question. But also, you know, whether he can be damaged to a point where he simply couldn't win no matter what he does. And now this time around lots of commentators saying that Trump's organization is will the station behind Trump's campaign is much better than last time. What do they mean by that? I think what they mean is, it's better funded. It's more professional again. You. Still have the problem that at its core is someone who blows up every plan, he comes in contact with who doesn't really like to be constrained, doesn't like to be managed at all. But there are more there's more money behind it. There are more staff even when he was the nominee, there was a sense in the Republican party in two thousand sixteen from was a bit of a joke that he couldn't possibly win. And so a lot of major donors either gave smaller amounts or stayed out in tirelessly, now, he's the standard bearer for the Republican party and wall. Some of these donors are perfectly happy to anonymously give quotes to the New York Times saying how how crude they think he is. They are throwing money behind him because at the end of the day, he's a nominee of their party. And he, he is in a lot of ways supporting their interests and one thing that I found interesting is one of the reasons why I think of people went for Trump the first time around that he didn't have this militarily organ. Is d- communications team in the weren't checking the emails and signing up everybody who came to the rallies, some people have criticized it and said it was ham fisted, but others that she said it was a return to most the good old days of chaotic campaigning. Which is actually something that made Trump more charming. There's a there's a fundamental problem here, which is that running against something very different than running on your own record. And Trump will make I think quite a fist of claiming a lot of chief minutes, most of that, if you scratch the surface is either him, claiming credit for stuff that he hasn't actually done. I mean, the economy was already booming when he took office. He's managed not screw it up is, basically what he can claim credit for or things that just aren't true. You know, he'll claim credit for solving the North Korea issue. Well, it's not solved. It's he he amped up tensions and amp them down and said, some really quite disturbingly friendly. Things about Kim Jong it, and that's not solving the problem. But that won't stop him from saying, I solve this problem and claiming it on a list of accomplishments. So there's this fundamental question of whether that will compel the same people to go out and vote for Trump as they were voting against what was seen as a continuation of the status quo in two thousand sixteen Hillary Clinton being very much a continuation candidate from the administration of Barack Obama, which is what we have in the film of Joe Biden, and some people have said that we really need to be careful this that we automatically narrow the field to Trump by already what do. Well, there's been a lot of reporting recently about Elizabeth, Warren's poll search. I don't think anyone would see Warren as a. As a continuation of the Obama era similarly, the person who she's surging largely expense of the person who's been number two in most polls up to now, Bernie Sanders, who very much, not a continuation of the Obama legacy in most respects. So you have Biden sitting in this strong but not concrete position at the head of the field, and then behind him these two quite left-wing, challengers, who I think would be seen as something significantly different than who between them or pulling higher than Biden, obviously, not every Sandra voters willing to vote for war and vice versa. But, you know, you have this block of voters who want a step change. And that's not even getting into the twenty other candidates in the field with their sort of declining poll ratings behind that. But they also a lot of ways represent different variants on a democratic administration jacket. Thank you very much indeed, for joining us on the program and Jackie we'll be back a little. Later to go through the wills newspapers. I'm nelson. You're listening to the globalist. UBS as one nine hundred investment analysts from over one hundred different over a million hundred of the shop is maulings and freshest thinkers in the world of finance today. No one this mall. The one though small find out how we can help you contact us at UBS dot com. Eight twenty in Berlin seven twenty one now hit in London with globalist on monocle twenty four now what actually like to be refugee. It's an experience. Most of us will thankfully, never grasped. Well, Dina nary fled Iran. The age of eight alongside Muslim, brother, the family eventually found their way to an old rundown hotel in Italy. There was then granted asylum in the United States Dina is now the author of three books, including the ungrateful refugee, what immigrants never tell you as part of the UK mocking refugee week, Tina spoke to monocle Georgina Godwin, and she began by explaining why the event is so important there so many reasons why it's important to draw attention to certain aspects of the refugee experience and also refugees here in the UK, I was a refugee as a child from Iran, when I was eight years old, we escaped, and we arrived in the US when I was ten with, you know, almost two years in refugee camps and such things you know now. There was nothing like a refugee week in the US, by the way, when where I was. But now, you know, coming here in London, you know, subtly here with child the thing that I see as the most important aspect of refugee week. Is that it showcases what refugees can bring what they can do all of the art? The talent entrepreneurial spirit the ways that refugees get involved in this week is so hardening and beautiful, and, you know, all throughout the year as people are preparing this week is various refugee organizations are coming together with refugees themselves to organize this week, they are becoming more and mesh together. They are learning more about each other refugees feeling empowered and ownership of something. And then during that week there are many venues all over the city where they, they with great pride and affection present things to, you know, the communities in London that they have made ways of presenting their stories their food, their music, their art. And so I think that this is a way to speak to the other side, the side that wants to close the doors, you know, to say. Hey look look, we have enriched this country. We have made this country beautiful. In a way that it wasn't before put in a way, that's part of its natural progression, and fitting with its history. So there's that then, of course, there's the fact that these refugee organizations need help. They need money and support. And they need media attention. So this is an opportunity for them. Each to step out and say, you know, hey, we're a small NGO. We're the ones building grocery stores in camps, like refugee support. Or we are the ones pairing, befriend IRS with refugees like host nation or we're the ones giving a you know, solace and comfort to torture survivors, like freedom from torture, all of these different organizations come together, and they help rise each other up and show, the British ways that they get involved and become a part of a global community of people who have all suffered in different ways. I think it's so so important for the native born to feel sense of kinship with refugees, and to see the parts of their own life that actually very similar. You know we, we all suffer we all leave behind home. Nobody gets to keep their home because we all moved through times. There was a quote that I heard, you know, a couple of years ago and sadly, I can't verify where it comes from. But it was something like, we are all immigrants from one moment to the next. Isn't that lovely? We are immigrants through time, you know, because we all leave behind a home that changes childhood, the changes. So I think just taking something like that. And seeing, you know, the commonality with our own experience and refugees helps us Joe is a community refugee week is all about that. I think that the very would refugee or asylum seeker is something that many people have found frightening. It's been behind bricks to degree, it's been behind the rise of populism, and the right coming up in some parts of Europe. But I think that when you look at the actual UNH figures up -solutely gives the lie to a lot of what it is. Is that people are afraid of? Yes. And you know, thank you for saying this, because this is another reason refugee week exists. They dispel, a lot of these myths, you know, they're professionals, and experts in these fields that get up and say that is not true. And one of them is what you just referred to, you know, there's, I think sixty eight million forcibly displaced people, according to the UNHCR in the world that sounds like a scary number before million of those are internally displaced in their own countries. You know, most of the rest, actually are refugees in neighboring countries, but you know, there's something like twenty five million refugees them, three three and a half million asylum-seekers, those asylum seekers are not all trying to come to Europe, by the way, you know, the u gets I think these are very rounded figures like something like half a million a year in asylum applications, rejects most many, I think about half of those. So, you know, there isn't this flood, this deluge or the swarm of people coming into Europe? And this language, I think is the biggest lie of the refugee crisis that this is a crisis from our point of view. No. Crisis from their point of view. We live in bountiful lambs, and we are the beneficiaries of most of the world's resources. So, you know, if a trickle of people who've lost their homes, their identities their dignity, their children, their families, if they come an Oscar to open the doors. What kind of monsters, would we be to say? No, because I want to hold onto a little bit more of this bounty. So I think it's important to think of it in those terms in the larger global terms on historical terms, frankly, most of the bounty has been gotten because of our historical desire for, you know, to take over because of colonialism you his cooled, the ungrateful refugee and really making the point that people who come here for nothing really almost too afraid to us for anything. They must be grateful for every small crumb that comes the way, I think people tend to look at their own individual situation and feel a ton of gratitude at the beginning. And that's really good. Gratitude of the private thing, it's a very. Healthy private experience. And it's something that brings love between individual people, but I think to have to pasta gratitude to an entire group of people for the rest of your life because an accident of birth put you there, put them here, and then, you know, somebody opened the door that's really very undignified unhealthy. And we shouldn't ask refugees to do this, because of the fact that they do feel such burden of gratitude and than necessity to constantly show, it, there's a lot that they suffered that they don't tell us that we could help in camps. They don't have enough schools as we talked about, when refugees arrive here, often, they have all these little needs that they don't talk to anybody about because they feel like they need to make do already their lives have been saved. So what more can they ask for? And I don't think it's okay for them to think that way, I think that all of us should think, in terms of, you know, I guess the much broader, you know, we are all humans on this earth. We were born in different places. We were born under different circumstances. And you know, we're here to make it all better. So if there is something that is. Missing or terribly wrong even after they arrive, they should feel okay to say so I should just say it's kind of like Paul refugee support. He's always happy when people complain about the food because then it feels as though his shop is the neighborhood shop, and that's I think, really lovely way to think about it didn't area that was speaking to monocle Georgina Godwin, and in his book, cooled, the ungrateful refugee is out now here in the United Kingdom. I'm will be published in the United States in September. Let's have a look at some business news now. Andrew Roma is not children finales, and he joins us on multiple twenty four. Now a comeback. Andrew tennis about the Federal Reserve. Goning. Yes. The, the central Bank for the USA has its regular interest rate decision this week on Wednesday. It's really come quite the story, arc in recent months for the Federal Reserve. As recently as two thousand eighteen it was signaling, it would keep raising kids, just rates throughout the whole of twenty nineteen, but we can economic data, which is really been attributed by a lotta people to the ongoing trade war between the US and China has forced it to, to row back from bullish outlook and recently it's actually been guiding that first of all that interest rates on changed for the whole of this year. And then now investors expecting as many as two incremental cups to its key interest. Right. So the timing is everything here. Isn't it? What happened now but this could happen at a later this year will what will probably get on Wednesday. And who knows exactly what investors are typified at the moment is that, that will be no action on Wednesday, but they will be a change in rhetoric change into the thing that they called the dot plot, which is their forecast for future rates that will be all gearing up for for a in July and then possibly further interest rate cuts off to that. Let's talk a little bit more about the Paris Asha which is on this week and much of the focus has been on Boeing's woes with its seven three seven max and what Abbas can do to transfer Boeing's lunch. Yes. Exactly. So the ash show, huge industry shindig, kicks off in, in Paris today, Boeing and bus normally be for each other to unveil the, the biggest number of orders for new planes. But obviously in the last few months bones being in the news for the wrong reasons with two horrendous crashes involving seven three seven months jet. That's really put Boeing on the back foot for this key showcase the industry bowing out being expected to launch a new range of mid sized jets to the show. But, but now they're more swiping around trying to unveil smaller deals and also to kind of restore their reputation in the industry and an. An Airbus is, is has decided that now the forest time to unveil a new addition to the three twenty family, which traditionally is. Medium to, to, to short rate shorthaul flights. But it says that it's got one which will be able to do out Tra long range. Well, yes, I was really driving Navan house of the moment of the global every plane market is really do -opoly. This is really two players controlling the whole industry Airbus's is not being kind to it's big US ROY is unveiling a whole new planes, including these long, long distance three twenty s and finally, let's talk food. So Friday looking back instead of looking forward. Chewy which the big US online pet retailer, chewy dot com. Went public sold shares on the stock exchange. For the first time. How to really good debut, the Hsieh's Klein sixty percent on, on this happening down Friday, Chubias is one of the fewest that the few companies in the world that manages to at least compete on some level against Amazon oversee the John bam of online retail, so CHU is the second to zone in the pet store sells industry in the US. Raise the billion dollars. Unfortunately, may be for the medium to long most of that money will actually be used to pay down debt at its parents company, which is pets out rather than being used to open up new markets. Curie is actually going to you some of the money as you said to pay off some of smarts debt, which is often what happens when you have an why. Yes, normally company like Uber or company like zoom, which is a, a video networking company that how great recent India says, well, they are raising money to go into new geographies to ramp. The marketing spend to high more employees. That's the typical IPO process. You're bringing in new money you capital and hoping for boost in sales. Chewy parent company had been owned by private equity, they'd been saddled with the load of debt. And so I'm fortunate that they're gonna have to use them to reduce debt rather than than growth. And thank you very much in different joining us on the globalist still to come on today's program. Do we really need a world show? Host find out who the winners and losers. A little later on twenty four. UBS global financial services from with over one hundred fifty years of heritage built on the unique dedication of people we bring fresh thinking perspective to I work, and we know that it takes a marriage of intelligence and haunt to create lasting value for Clinton's. It's about having the right ideas, of course, but was about having one of the most accomplished systems and unrivaled network of global experts. That's why at ABS we pride ourselves on thinking small to, to make a real difference. Tune in weekly to the bulletin with UBS for the latest insights, and opinions from UBS and experts from around the world. To most week Moldova had a crisis caused by failure to form a government. Now it has a crisis coast by government being formed. Andrew Mueller explains how events unfolded and looks at what might happen next. Moldova's forays into the headlines rare explain seeking to explain Moldova should probably therefore start with the basics. It's just next to the top right-hand corner of Romania alongside the border with Ukraine population, three million and change about the same size as Belgium independent since the collapse of the Soviet Union in nineteen. Ninety-one. If you have read all hood much about Moldova before, now it has probably being about the part of Moldova that wishes it wasn't part of Moldova. This is the strange geopolitical normally of the Preakness strove, Ian Moldovan Republic, better known as Transnistria a sliver of land squeezed between the Denise to river and Ukraine, which operates as a sort of Soviet Russia theme park. Transnistria still erect statues of Lenin flow as the hammer and sickle on its flag and has become a staple destination for chortling travel. Writings. Also in the least visited country in Europe. The fact is that more people visit my local Tesco every day visit Moldova every year, but it is in Moldova proper, where curious things are refute this week to the extent that as we go to where it's not entirely clear who if anyone is rolling. The country Mennea Russia. This question has being boarding for that wants to site for years. And these elections are out exception through main players through Bharti's that will likely for the parliament, socialist party that has pro Russian Democratic Party that is rather pre Rabin and Italy formed opposition bloc coom, that is strongly briefing of these Bernie Shaw. Aw, its roots in Moldova's, most recent general election back in February. It was a close run thing, the pro Russian socialist party finished first, but the e u democratic Ponti and a alliance finished a close second and third respectively. Nobody had a parliamentary majority. Confusing matters further, where plausible allegations of vote-buying ballot stuffing and other shenanigans largely on the part of the socialist. Attentive to happen, and then people will regain the trust in the country, and then start building democracy will strength in the state, these accuses which would what citizens and not for a some. Could both to some months of inconclusive wrangling this past weekend? The pro Russian socialists and the pro e you a comb alliance agreed to form an unlikely governing coalition to be led by the alliance's Maya Sunday, previously Moldova's minister of education, who would become prime minister Moldova's eighth prime minister this decade, the country is no stranger to political crisis. Yes. Cutting chunk Asuka Dada.

And if it has taken a stand on the principle, that one businessman shouldn't get to own an entire country that shortly KENDALL to be a thing. Twenty four on. Thank you. Andrew listening to monocle twenty four. Let's look at today's newspapers. Join me once again, this is the US says expert Jacob parakeets and even rummaging through the papacy. We didn't need to him time on Monday. Thank you Jacob fan. So starting on the front page of the international New York Times, the story that was released on the internet over the weekend, and costs certain amount of consternation US plants digital mind in Russia's power grid. And there are a couple of things here, one is the fact that the US is apparently increasingly aggressively using its ability to implant, both surveillance, and sort of what are called land mines. And the story to basically thing that sit within a power grid. Waiting to be activated by remote signal. Not physical, of course, but pieces of code that could potentially shut down or disrupt service in the event of a more open conflict. That's one level the other level is this story came from somewhere and the way, the story is written. It apparently not only that the Trump administration that the president himself signed off on increasing broadly, speaking, the powers of the intelligence community undertake these operations. But also that someone in the intelligence community thought they needed to tell the New York Times about it, which suggests that the president wasn't briefed on it. And they thought that having it released semi publicly having some information about this would safeguard it should he decide to withdraw the operation using this adjusted as the President Trump wasn't briefed on it might not have been to it happening. Yeah. I mean, the clearly divide between the president and the civil service and the intelligence community about Russia. The other interesting thing here is that some of these powers were given to the Defense Secretary in last military authorization act without much notice. Of course, the Defense Secretary is not someone who's been Senate confirmed yet. So you have an acting secretary of defense using powers that have not been that we're not sort of fully examined by congress. At the behest of president who apparently hasn't been fully briefed on what's going on. And what's interesting, though, is that this has been happening for years. Why release this information now about this particular operation part of the disag- Ling part of it is, is letting the Russians know the Russians who tend to have less of a vigorous domestic debate over the appropriateness of certain forms of digital surveillance and sabotage. Have been apparently surveilling and planting the similar types of Mel wear in American power grids, so part of this publicly signalling to Russia, in an unmissable way. We have this to don't turn off our power grid because we'll off yours. Right. Okay. Let's move onto the next door that you've found so things ramping up in this low level scale between Russia and the United States Russia and the United Kingdom trying to find a way back off to souls, Braith. That's a long journey. It is. So this is the guardian page one talking about how how bad relations between Russia and the UK have gotten how essentially the British diplomatic presence in Russia has been reduced to an absolute skeleton crew, which also limits Britain's ability to understand what's happening within Russia. But the prime minister, though, the though, she's on her way out is looking for a way to potentially meet with humor Putin at the g twenty at the end of the month and find some kind of stable middle ground. Whether that involves some kind of Russian I think it's too much to ask that the Russians. Will apologize for what happened in Salisbury. But some kind of guarantee that it wouldn't happen again. Seems to be the the British position and it wouldn't happen. Again is, is one thing. But it's I don't know. I think the script on the sex Kripa poisoning have become very, very big news in the last couple of days, given the, the reaction after the, the, the poisoning of the foam Russian spy, my boys Johnson, then foreign secretary he's been touting as his reason that he should become prime minister given the fact that Bryce Johnson said that he acted quickly he acted extensively. And he sent a very clear diplomatic message out. That's the the, the message coming from Boris's camp. I think the. The counter argument that would beat that. Responding in some capacity, short of, you know, sending the af over to drop some bombs on Saint Petersburg was an absolute necessity that he did what was required. So it was sort of a minimum to the minimum standard, but not necessarily a sign of actual sort of forward leaning leadership from Johnson. Okay. Let's move to the financial times, the continuing row over the attacks on to oil tankers in the Gulf, among over the weekend, the Saudi Crown prince Mohammad bin Salman, pointed the finger strongly to Ron and said that meshes be taken to ensure a oil will feel security. What's the FTC? So the F T is essentially saying that the, you have these two very large actors, they're two separate articles one about Saudi Arabia one about the US the Saudis are saying, well, we ever want to say, we don't wanna war. The Saudis are saying, we don't want a war. But we are willing to defend our interests and the thing that's important context there is the extent to which Saudi Arabia has expanded a huge amount of money on their military, and particularly their ballistic missile program, which hasn't gotten a lot of press, but Saudi Arabia does have a separate branch of its. I'm not sure of a separate branch receptor formation within its military, it has quite a large number of Chinese designed intermediate range ballistic missiles, and, of course while they don't have nuclear weapons as far as anyone knows. There are some stories about their relationship with Pakistan, whether there are some pucks, tiny weapons that are your marked for use by the Saudis, if absolutely necessary. It's a real threat. The Saudis also have a pretty considerable air force. So when they make these kinds of threats, there is actually a significant military capacity behind it, and it's going to be restrained by Washington, because the article below that is about Mike Pompeo, John Bolton and Trump Trump. Vacillates as he does between. Well, I'd like to talk to the Iranian leadership. I think we could do a deal. And this very, very tough talking. He's not as authentic committed to aggressive action as Bolton. But of course, Bolton knows how to work loves of government, much better does expose vulnerability of energy and oil. Trump's vote doesn't. Yeah. And the, the there, there's a little bit of dispute over exactly how much of the world oil supply comes through the stretch for moose but enough. So that, if there were a disruption, there would almost certainly be a price shock everywhere. The Saudi energy ministry said, they must be rapid and decisive response to the threat of energy supplies. You talked about in a retaliation this, how realistic prospect is any of that. I don't think the Saudis would launch a full-scale attack against Iran without buying from the US. I think if the Iranians unambiguously attacked the Saudis, the Saudis. Respond that they would do so in the confidence that the US would swoop in fairly quickly. So I, I don't think the Saudis, the Saudis are pretty heavily engaged in their dirty war in Yemen. I don't think they particularly want to fight a second front, a directly against Iran and less. Of course, they have a whole coalition, including the world's preeminent military power on their side. Finally, the pay per view, wouldn't be pay per view without some mention of Brexit and indeed, tied note to the conservative party leadership contest, an interesting debate held last night and Mongol the leading candidates. The leading candidate Boris Johnson who had an empty lack and represent him. An empty lectern which the other is kept gesturing at and saying this guy here should note, I'm looking at the times. And also the telegraph the times big headline leadership contenders. Clash over no deal. Brexit. And then inside spread with huge photo of all the five and the. Empty lectern the telegraph for which Boris Johnson is very well. Renumerated columnists lead with Boris fast internet for every home by twenty twenty five which is I would say, surprisingly, shameless, except I'm not really surprised by the telegraph shameless this on this particular front anymore. Detect citizen, new voice. Take your parakeets. Thank you very much in deep adjoining to the paper review, the globalist monocle seven fifty hit in London. Quick look at today's edition of the monocle minute Reese James explains how the Welsh language his playing an important role in reminding people of what the culture is all about. The Welsh national anthem spine tingling finale, by the bar, high has been something of an unofficial rallying cry for language activists move in the century. The Rosen phrase roughly translates, as plead, the Welsh language should live forever. It's inclusion is deliberate, demonstrates the importance of the vernacular place in the country's national identity as one of the oldest surviving tongue. In Europe, KOMO because withstood, the linguistic changes were bought by both the countries Roman in English congress and the rapid industrialization of the nineteenth century, the languages company doing something of Rene Sants, it's politics, even by younger generation that is confident in its skin, and it is increasingly Komen for children from English speaking homes to now attend. Welsh medium school in the nation's capital, Cardiff. The Welsh government is also announced on bishops plans to boost the number of wealth, speaks to one million by twenty fifty it would be no small task in a core of the UK were English still dominates and they should be applauded. Indeed nationalism in Europe can take many of the foams, but the Welsh slam which is a great advancement for the civility of no way from what you're about, as Monaco's Reese James of the story from today's edition of the multiple minute. Sign up daily Email bulletin at monocle dot com. Finally, the caliber of would show hosts can determine whether the whole event becomes a glorious riotous celebration, or a straightforward disaster. So the Emmys it considering ditching the present to all together and tell us more. The phone critic Karen, Christina vich me now nicely back laughing. Thing you the night, south wins or loses depending on the host that is true. I mean, obviously, sometimes if they're being rude to guests play music over their heartfelt things. Then that's not so good either or it runs over people don't like that. But generally, yes, if you've got a bad host, people would turn off though people do turn off. They show after eleven o'clock at night, you lose hundred thousand viewers a minute. Here's done it. Well in the past, and who's in who's a sting, okay? The reason the reason okay, this is all about numbers. And because it's trendies world about trends. So last year that Oscars suddenly went without a host. I mean obviously they've done it before. But and the ratings were really high, they were six point four with huge huge figures of twenty six twenty six million now last year's Emmys had a two point four ratings, the lowest in history, with ten point two million viewers. So the Oscars leading the way and they think. Emmys are going. Well, maybe we should do that too, because we're really bleeding viewers. I mean last year, Kate McKinnon and Keenan Thompson walked out of the top of the show, and everybody was like, oh host, but then they didn't. And then will they knew they weren't going to, because it was Colin Jost, and Michael, Michael j, but the only real unexpected capper was a wedding wedding proposal by an Oscar director. So there you go. So how we got to this stage, we've got to the point, okay? The Oscars decided to ditch it the disowns ditch they're not sure they're saying that they might, but they okay they're nominating on the twenty second of July, the show is the sixteenth, July. The show is the twenty second of September. But by now no me, we would know who is in the running apart in the in the past. It's been earliest genuine as monster lives. They've seal the presenter, the EMMY still say that they won't a perfect host how likely is that happen. Well, social media's putting a lot of pressure on the hosting job. And Jimmy Fallon said it's, it's a it's a really tough job. And it's kind of thankless never mind, the money, but people are saying that my Rudolph would be a really great host. And I think that she would ping all the all the boxes but I think what they're trying to do because this year, a lot of great shows icon shows are coming to the end, and they're thinking, well, let's just shift away from host and concentrate on the shows. So individual hosts for each award will give the platform to the show that wins the idea, and that seems to make perfect sense. It worked for the Oscars. I wonder what it says about the caliber of hosts, nine days or indeed, the month field, that hosting a show has become. We have seen seismic changes in the way that. Hollywood showbiz television has been dealing with allegations of racism, metoo in, you do have a feeling that you, you walk into a very, very dangerous place when you step on the stage when your host it is it is. I mean in, in analog days, pre internet, it was, it was a, it was a great honor, and it was wonderful and you had fun but was much more relaxed. And now Kevin Hart step down for the Oscars, because they found some old homophobic, tweets and social media, and also your history really council lot, and even if you're really good, comedian, like a lot of the people are Saturday live on NBC. It's hosting a three hour show with lots of variables and things can still go. Wrong is a real poison chalice. And I think a lot of people just feel like it's just not worth it. I'm Andy sambergen hosted the show in twenty fifteen and he was from NBC anyway. And for the Oscars. Well, I mean, we've had really old comedians but they want somebody trendy in who's willing to put themselves on the line. And as we even with the BAFTA 's, I mean, we thought that, you know, nobody could could make a problem there, but it is getting to be really problematic. So I think maybe going host free could be the trend for all the shows in the future. What would we lose if that happen? Well, the scary thing about not having a host is that it's sort of like it seems weird and it seems bitty. We don't have anybody to hold their hand this very long walk through very dark woods. It's sort of like having ship. Without a captain in the ship is three hours long doesn't matter them. I wonder actually, whether those the opportunity and some people said that this is an opportunity to have more fun with the full, Matt that they can stop playing around, and in actual fact, it's probably moving to a good place now that we have a host free. I think it's a good thing. I do particularly with 'em is because they have a hard out unlike the Oscars. Which don't they can run onto four hours. But the Emmys have to be three hours long they stop strictly at eleven PM eastern standard time. And I think that there is some play with the format, but with time restrictions, and moving things along, and not dropping out awards, maybe less fun than we might think the carrying on of it.

Monocle 24: The Briefing

57:48 min | 2 years ago

Friday 28 June

"You're listening to the briefing, first broadcast on the twenty eighth of June two thousand nineteen on one twenty four. Hello and welcome to the briefing coming to you live from studio. One here at Madari house in London. I'm Georgina Godwin. Coming up. Vladimir Putin has given a far reaching interview we'll analyze what it is. He'd really like the world's to know then, hey guys, you know what America does not want to witness a food fight. They wanna know how we're going to put food on their table. Kamla Harris intervenes and the democratic debate last night. We'll get the take about LA bureau chief on the event. Also, we'll be in Hong Kong checking in on the protests there and looking ahead to what's likely to be a major demonstration on the first of July, and it's very worrying case both what happening. Arlington. In terms of freedom of expression will generally and also a trend within lively about writers being attacked wrenching. Fishmeal story, we'll examine writers at risk and finally, a check in with our team in Madrid with a Monaco quality of life conferences currently underway. All that right here on the briefing with me, Georgina Godwin. Leaders of the nineteen wealthiest nations, and the European Union meter Nasaka Japan Vladimir Putin the Russian president, who's out the twenty summit has given a major interview to the financial times, newspaper Russia analyst, even DL is hits a look at what he said, and what to expect from Putin during the meeting, Stephen journalistically. This was quite a coup for the tea. Why do you think that fusion has chosen to articulate his worldview in this particular way? He has the stage at the twenty anyway. He has the stage but I think this he's feeling good about himself. He's feeling that the annexation of Crimea, the war in Ukraine. The intervention in Syria are things that the west is rather forgotten about. And I think he feels he's riding on the crest of a wave and thought, okay, you know, I'll, I'll lay my cards on the table to certain extent. He knows that the F T is not only highly respectable. Highly. Were widely read around the world. And I think you know, he's, he's taking advantage and saying, look, you know, this is me. I'm I'm full of confidence. This is what I believe an and tough if you don't like it. Well, the main line seems to be something that many of us weren't, like which was that the liberal idea has outlived its purpose? Can you expand on that actually I made a bit odd, but I'm rather grateful to him for saying that simply because this is something that those of us who follow Russia have been saying to people for a long time. He just he just doesn't play according to our rules, he, he doesn't like us, he doesn't like the way we do things. This is the clearest explanation. We've had yet from Putin himself to say, this is what I don't like so although I don't like his words, I'm pleased that he said it, because it is gonna make arguments in the future, much easier to say, look, you know, he has put himself very firmly against western values. You know, this is what it is. It's not you know, he talks liberalism. Let that means. Western values. That means diversity that means respecting people, for who they are, that means whether it's a LGBT whether it's immigrants, whatever he says, in very nasty things about immigrants. I mean saying that, you know, the way you behave in the west allows them to come in, and Robin steel and rape. And they know that protected because they're immigrants, you know, that is not the case there is the rule of law in, in the west. That's also part of liberalism. And so the fact he's said this now we'll make it much clearer in the future. Say, look, this is what this man stands for it is not what we respect in the west did not what we believe is right? So it actually makes the, the opposition, the to, to Putin's system much easier to prove to put forward. Speaking on Syria. He said that armed intervention them at that Russian forces received practical experience, that they couldn't have obtained during peacetime exercises. I mean, that seems excessively callous, but that seems to be the look, he's going for it is indeed. And in fact, it's not the first time he said that he has said that in in Russian Browns. He's, he's dismissed it as saying, oh, was comparatively, cheap military operation and for the experience, we got I it was well worth it. It I think that again, people should look at it and say this shows how callous this man can be. He has not about human life because even though he said, oh, you know, we have we have killed so many insurgents. Yeah. He he also we know that the Russians have killed thousands and thousands of innocent civilians in Syria. They've bombed hospitals directly. We know that, you know, there's if people take that as a starting point, and then look, a bit wider, for example, look at some of the, the information that is being gleaned by who knows ation such as Belling cat, which has done a fantastic job in all sorts of various in explaining what's going on. The what he's playing on here is the fact that too many people now in the west and this is the Christmas is just the pace of life. If you like we see the headlines, we say, oh, that's the situation. I mean I'm an yesterday's headline. So we forget it and we go further, we really need organizations, such as betting cat and knows that go into these things in more detail Chatham house. There's all sorts of organizations that do this produce. Kathy Lee research papers on stories that were yesterday's or the day before yesterday's news, but still are relevant and he's playing to the audience. He's playing to the populist audience who don't look at these things, perhaps, whereas this really highlights. This is what this man saying. Look, what's behind it look wider because these are really the important issues. Now, I know that he ended the interview with a bit of a job at Britain that particular Dr conservative leadership debacle, and he's meeting with Theresa May. She's expecting to call him out over the scruple. Poisoning. But he'll have a number of bilateral meetings, and I wonder just how much weight Russia carries within the g twenty not much basically because I almost feel that the reason is g twenty is because Russia, although was a member of what was g eight now again, G seven was actually Russia was never one of the strongest economies in the world anyway, the highest ever got to about twelve and it's falling now. So it just about falls, into g twenty but he will again. He he'll play that for all he's worth. He's he's, there's an awful lot of smoke and mirrors, we've Putin and he will play out this idea that, you know, he's he's Trump today. He's, he's, he's meeting Theresa May, you know, he'll have another chat with g from China. They've met twenty eight times already since twenty twelve he's trying to play up this idea that Russia is a is a player again, at the in fact, the headline, which I have in front of the F T Putin herald, Russia's. Turn to the top table. Will he may think they have? But actually, they haven't he hasn't returned Russia to the top table. Russia is still considered by many as, as a pariah on the world stage, Ukraine, must never be forgotten Syria. Must never be forgotten shooting down of seventeen scrip alatha. You know there are so many things that that need to be remembered. So even if Putin is, is sounding often trying to portray himself as a great world leader. In fact, there are too many other things that show that he's not an Russia has not yet returned to the fold because Russia has too many sins in its in its recent past that haven't been answered for Stephen. Thank you very much indeed. That was Stephen deal. You're listening to the briefing. Let's get a look at some of the day's other top stories from one calls Reese James, thanks Georgina. The democratic party's presidential frontmen Joe Biden his face. Tough questions from his rivals in a heated television debate in Miami Kamala Harris, criticized by inviting his past work with bigoted senators. He said that Harrison mischaracterize. His role in champion civil rights demolition, experts in Italy of blown up the remains of them. Randy bridge in Genoa. It comes nearly a year after the structure collapsed killing forty three people. Thousands of residents Revette created from their homes ahead of the plant demolition of the remaining structure, and FRANZ may record its highest ever temperature. Today's a heat wave continues to sweep across Europe. France is national weather service issued a red alert warning for four regions in the safe, Germany Poland, the Republican Spain also sweltering in the heat. Those the day's headlines back to you Georgina. Thank you very much to you Reese, and now it's time to get the day's business headlines. I'm joined on the line by Bloomberg's Sebastian Salik and the best team. We know the biggest business story today is that Apple's design chief is leaving the company. Yes. Johnny is heading out the door after decades at the company, he was the man who designed the original desktop way back in nineteen ninety eight the first ipod in two thousand and one the ipad as recently as twenty ten he's been a significant. Factor in Africa's growth, there is no denying that you've got to remember that back in the late ninety s apple was on the brink of bankruptcy. But this is not a good by, he's going to form an independent company, an apple is going to stay as a primary client. So we still going to continue over the work. He's doing for them just as a third party. He spoke to the financial times saying, I'll still be very involved for many, many years to come. So this is by no means the end of slick attention grabbing design from Apple's products. He's going to be replaced in house by Evans Hanky and Allen die who are two senior designers. They play key leadership roles on the apple design team for a long time, NASA. Hopefully, smooth transition there. They took over day to day management of the team. When Johnny, I've stepped away to folks in the creation of the company's new headquarters in California. So they're very affet with what's going on. So hopefully as we transition interesting to note the timing those is when apple has moved on from the dominance of his iphone moving more to services ten. No aji. And that's possibly part of the reason why it's seemingly a little bit better received by shareholders in the pre market trading. We're seeing apple down by about a percent. Now, let's have a look at bitcoin, which has risen hugely. I mean almost exponentially. This is rising. Yeah. He's been a cracking year for bitcoin. You've something like tripled your money. Even just this week of a rise has been meteoric from about eleven thousand dollars to almost fourteen thousand dollars for one bitcoin. Although the decline, then has been just a swift at crushed on Thursday yesterday down to close to ten thousand dollars. But host to edge upwards again at its peak, it was the highest since back in January of twenty eighteen bringing about memories of that twenty seventeen December crypto bubble the digital see a supply chain companies saying that this time is usually investors wealthy individuals. Family offices suicide difference to all of the friends that we saw two years ago. And the question then is what else is driving? Another factor could be that. It's. As an attorney tiv- safe asset, what with gold rising as well, a loss of central banks going into easing mode investors want somewhere to put their money. It's also prompted a big proposal might never griots to talk about not having taken off the money is money off the table earlier on, and perhaps that drove people to sell because very tight, knit community people like him watched or listened to. So if he is sounding the alarm their potentially many others who were following him Sebastian. Thank you very much indeed. That Sebastian Celik in the Bloomberg newsroom here in London. You're listening to the briefing on monocle twenty four. World leaders have descended on the Japanese city of Osaka for two days of meetings at the group of twenty summit. This is officials themes include evaluating risks to the global economy, trade wars, artificial intelligence and women in the workplace some nations, including Japan will be pushing for tougher action on climate change as well. Well, for a closer look at the summit under discussion on some of the day's other big news stories, I'm joined in the studio by Nina Schick, whose political commentator, an adviser on a broadcaster, and, but James Rogers, his senior lecturer in international studies at City University in London. Thank you, both so much for coming in. And I know that you'd be having a lively discussion before you even came into the studio. So I look forward to continuing that now we've just heard from, from Stephen deal about Putin's big interview in the F T and the G two doesn't seem to be a time for big headlines. But I wonder how much actually gets done there, Nina. Well, I think it's fair to say that not much gets done. The kind of draft conclusions or the communiques are prepared beforehand. But in this on this occasion, even more than in the past, you know, there's going to be a lot of disharmony and discord, and I think the key story is obviously the relationship between as using ping of China and Donald Trump. And how Putin is kind of now quite obviously saying that he doesn't agree with the liberal world order and the other issues, which are really issues that humanity is facing whether that's the crisis in the climate or migration issues or issues to do with gender equality. I mean, they're probably going to get a look at. And really? So what, what do you think James, how important are those bilateral meetings were often courses pulls Nina's, quite writes, said, lots of this work is done beforehand, a lot of these so complicated. The officials and diplomats are working on these weeks before these summits. Take place in a having covered a number of, of sooner international summits. When I was a correspond. Did you know that quite often the news agenda is taken over by whatever's happening in the world? For example, if there's a crisis in the Middle East one can expect that if there's any situation changing around Iran, that will come to dominate the headlines when you've got, you know, the leaders of the world's most powerful economies and indeed military's or present in the same place, but there are some issues, particularly over trade, which presumably, the ones who won meetings or a way of resolving. You know, it's not that they've gone to the big trouble of organizing all these summits. But I guess what would just happen to be here? So maybe we can have a quick chats about that, while we're together, and we've seen a lot of these bilateral meetings is that called happening rather, or could one between the British Prime Minister, Theresa may of leading Putin. Most seen pictures of this morning as well. So I think they are important, but he may be, you know, particularly one would imagine on China and the United States and trade, maybe some certainly room for progress. There may be some communicated, of course, the Chepe was as we say the biggest thing really, that's come out of this summit. It is the biggest thing and I think that. Even though we're talking about the China US relationship in terms of trade. This is actually emblematic of a much bigger geopolitical shifts. Although Trump has been you know, attacking China about towers in the trade deal. This is about an assertion China rising power in the east and different political system. I mean for the poss kind of seventy years we've been used to the liberal world. Order led by the United States, you know, liberal democracy at its core and backed by a heart security guarantee, and that is fundamentally gonna shift in the twenty first century. So this is just the beginning of that kind of new, tough overpower, which I think we're gonna see playing out a geopolitically, and Thus, I think a lot of the bilateral meetings, and meetings that you see coming out of the g twenty are actually used by the leaders to serve their own domestic agenda, or their own political worldview. And as pointed out, for example, Putin's meeting with Donald Trump. I mean that was an amazing opportunity for him because they loft about meddling in the US election, even though it's undoubtedly. True that it happened and similarly meeting with Theresa May Chason weakened British Prime minister just a year after the cells by attacking the chemical weapons attack. In britain. Astonishing, james. We know that climate change. Of course, is the one thing that plays everywhere. It's not just a domestic policy problem for anyone country. Japan is really taking the lead on this yesterday. Own. Of course, you know, the biggest you about climate change phones. Of course, the United States is not taking the lead on this. I that's an in China as well has made considerable progress in the last few years. I think not least because, you know, you see the state of pollution, some of China's big cities if you just media reports enough to make you think my goodness, what must've be like to live in the middle of that, and Japan is the host is leading on. What is a very, very important international issue. But given the United States, particularly presence administration doesn't sign up to the consensus of, of how graveness you this is, and I think the scope probably for progresses fairly limited. Let's look at some of the other issues that aren't really making headlines at the moment. So, for instance, AI Nina. Well, I think this is obviously going to be one of the biggest issues that shapes geopolitics in, in the coming century how the fourth industrial revolution. That is the revolution technology communication. An information is going to change everything in our lives. And also the, the political systems that govern us. And basically, you could have the emergence again, playing out in this new tussle for power between the United States and China, where China potentially has ha is well set to become the world's new superpower. I think the main point to take away from a I is that it will be used as a geopolitical instrument. And I think that we're only now just beginning to understand what that even looks like because we are going to see such a different world in this fourth industrial revolution because of technology, and it's going to be deeply deeply. Critical. I mean times are changing, so fast technology is moving so fast and yet, we are still talking about women in the workplace in two thousand nineteen why is that? I think because a lot of the research, I mean, I've remember reading these United Nations and other reports going back to decades and Moore which says, you know, all countries can draw considerable economic benefit. For more women being in the workplace and yet isn't happening in the same way. I mean, even in western countries, I suppose many of the, the obstacles around childcare and things like that women who choose to take time off to have children coming back into the workplace and in other countries, you know, they're still are sort of their other huge cultural prejudices against, you know, you go and you look in some parts of the world up, for example, you know, governments under almost no women there, and I think that's going to take a long time to change. I if indeed it's going to a tool, you know, as President Putin said Gelo, liberal values have had their day and, you know, in some parts of the world, they've never have day. And so, I think, you know, it is, but as far as one can tell from reading all the research suggests that the more women in the workplace the better, it is generate for the economy. General absolute one workplace that is not going to have a woman in charge, there anytime soon is number ten Downing Street, because of course, there are two male contenders for that job now, the EU has warned that Boris Johnson, who is the favourite at the moment. They say his use of what they claim a false promises, sitter, patriotism, and foreign bashing to win. The conservative leadership is making a no deal Brexit certain. Would you agree? It's making it very very, very much more likely. And I think the important thing for listeners to remember that as Tory leadership race pays out. It is not based on facts, or what are the actual situate, what the actual situation is, and that is because Boris Johnson is, obviously playing to his base. They're the only ones are going to have a vote in who becomes the next prime minister. But that strategically very shortsighted because as soon as he becomes prime minister and I and I do believe he will become prime minister then has to face the reality of the situation and because. The posturing and rhetoric has become more and more extreme. There is less and less space to compromise, as less than us base to reach a realistic conclusion with the European Union, which might then lead to the most extreme circumstance, which is no deal Brexit. And if that happens and I think there's a high chance that might happen. The next question is, what happens then and I suspect at that moment, rather than being admitting that he made some mistakes, and perhaps he knew that he was actually playing a political game of propaganda. The rhetoric will be amped up even further because then you're going to have real economic consequences, and an even bigger political crisis, and that is very dangerous. Not only for the EU going forward, but also for the UK essentially have to allies, that have worked together so well Britain and the European Union alienated them at odds with one another. I mean Jones, the versus Johnson is threatened to suck anyone from the cabinet who won't buck a no deal Brexit. If he becomes prime voice Johnson is in the. Both candidates in this race or an extremely difficult position as Nina has pointed out, they are the moment, having only to appeal to the hundred sixty thousand or so members of the British Conservative Party. However, the way that conduct themselves well, doing that is strategically damaging, one of the things which says about Boris Johnson, for example, when he was mayor of London, he was compared to Tony Blair, the former labor prime minister in that both of them could attract voters who would not normally vote for their party Boris. Johnson has squandered that he's no longer has that position. People said, we're looking may have been a conservative, when he was mayor of London, lots of labor voters voted for him. And it's true. They did those very voters are very, very unlikely to vote, I think for conservative party led by him after the way this campaign has been conducted and I don't know what their strategists and communications advisors are actually telling them because you know they have two very distinct goals. They have to get over the line to become prime minister with this election of tiny proportion, population thereafter, is every prospect, they'll face the general election in the next twelve months. And, and I don't know how this is going to serve them at that point. I think it's very interesting. What you say about PR because he's had a couple of obviously big problems with that one of them was this row with his girlfriend, which he's still refusing to talk about and the other one, I think, has been a very clever move on, on, on the part of his PR people. And this is him talking about buses, and he is talked about the fact of how he likes to make multiple buses. He likes to paint wine, crates, to look like buses. And this we're told we assume is so that when anybody searches buses that big lie that he had painted across a red London bus of three hundred and fifty million pounds for the for the NHS. No longer comes up top of the surge. Yeah. I don't know if it's a PR in calms team was strategic enough to have done that on purpose. But that's certainly the effect right. So the live Boris Johnson standing in front of the bus at three hundred and fifty million pounds that we send to the NHL purportedly every week no sent to the EU and should be used on the NHS doesn't come up nonetheless. Yes. The bigger point is that, you know, it's just all such a lark Churchill Churchill. I build buses shortall chortling did, I or didn't I call the French turds, and while all of this attention is going on Boris Johnson's kind of Britain showmanship, what we're not doing is concentrating on his actual Brexit policy, which as soon as you examine it is subject to it doesn't stand up the first test of scrutiny. And the crash is coming and it's coming in four months time on October the thirty first when the deadline with European Union runs out they, he says he's going to have a dealer, he's going to leave with no deal. And the fact is that if the UK does not ask for an extension of parliament count force, an extension or the prime minister does not ask for an extension. The UK will be crashing out at eleven pm without a deal. And that is the start of a really big economic and political crisis. And I just can't believe that the future potential prime minister thinks. It's appropriate and wise to be making funny jokes about buses at this time, it's cost extraordinary now it's fifty years since the stonewall riots, which led to the modern LGBT plus movement. The first pride March took place in one thousand nine hundred seventy in New York, and it was all out about activism, and revolutionary ideas. But house pride become meaningless now is it just a capitalist vehicle. This is certainly what Peter touch will says he wrote an op-ed in the garden today. He said a community organizations have become increasingly corporatized and exploited with UK pride parades, often dominated by big business sponsors, and floats vote seeking politicians and state agents, such as the police who brag about the LGBT, plus inclusiveness, but have not apologized or compensated us for their decades of oppression. Jones. Would you agree is it all just a great big capitalists fest, with nothing to do really about proper LGBT, plus rights are really very, very freaky? Enjoy reading criticize with rising, because I think he's, he's he's, he's not really rare. Activist campaigns for causes and doesn't let it go and is not satisfied and continues to campaign, I used to teach a university of which he was an alumnus, and he came to talk one time and remember that a lot of the time, we'd spent it at university were were him sort of break ins meetings of the governing body of the university in order to protest. I, I think he's a very valid point here. You know, this is this is the way that capitalism works. And this is why, you know, for years, we've talked in this country about the pink pound, you know, with LGBT people being identified as a particular markets, particular niche for marketers to target from having read this piece. I think he's got a very good point. I think it's, you know, it's, it's, it's, it's a very important point for him to raise the pink pound is becoming less and less. So as, as a gay men and women choose to have children. And in fact, that disposable income that, that we thought that then that, all of those people had is no longer there. They're spending them on their kids like heterosexual couples do. Yeah, but I think. I think that's one of his points, isn't it as well? He's talking about people are just becoming mainstream. And this is not the way that it was supposed to be not, y you know, he became a campaigner in the first place. Do you think it's a good thing, though, that everybody wants to join in supporting and being seen to support something that was once so other is it a good thing? Perhaps this now is mainstream. It's both. And I think that I agree with his criticism of, you know, the movement becoming over commercialized, and that's certainly true. You'll need to look at any like big brands that are doing launches for millennials or things, like Facebook where they have on Pride Day. You can you can change your profile picture to have pride flag. So I think it's certainly true that the identity markers are being used by corporations and big business. Nonetheless, I think his argument and his piece is very, very well, written. I would recommend that anybody read it his argument that homosexual couples now are just aspiring to a hetero normative kind of identity or lifestyle. It almost seems a bit, perhaps. That's what they wanted. You know, so why should your kind of view of what a radical homosexual identity should look like be imposed upon someone who maybe just wants to get married to their partner and have children and live in a in a in a mainstream society? So I think that is up for debate, but I certainly agree with his criticisms about the commercialization of the, of the identities provocative argument. Talk to. I mean, pops evidence that it has become too cuddly is that even penguins in same sex relationships at London zoo, a celebrating pride next. They have banners of apparently or at least they're going up saying, some penguins, a gay get over it, which, of course, is an echo of the list. The stone will banner and Ronnie and Reggie disease most famous penguin gay calculator, if either of you have very strong feelings about gay penguins. No. I kind of think that's great because you also normalizing it for young kids. Right. In the context of what's going on here in this country right now where some parents are dining kind of or protesting against LGBTQ awareness classes in school. You know, having quote unquote cuddly ways to teach children that, you know, not all couples are heterosexual. I think is, is universally a good thing. Yeah. Ronin. Reggie's behalf the buzzer, where they wants to have their relationship list public might just be running in Reggie's affairs, just be up to them. That's been outed without their consent. An expert piece of touch with quite a lot. But if you think you so much for, for coming onto speech us, that was James Rogers and Nina chic and still to come the very latest from Hong Kong. Protests. In Hong Kong continuing over plans to introduce a controversial extradition, Bill that could see criminal suspects extradited to mainland China to face trial, the city states. Authorities of put their plans on hold. But there's still considerable anger about the measure, well, I'm joined on the line by Monaco's Hong Kong bureau chief James chambers, James. What's the latest there? Well, it's been a bit of a quiet week in comparison to the protests of a couple of weeks ago, but they're still ongoing, as you mentioned. They've become a bit splintered. So in the last few days have been more smaller protests outside the police station, but they've also spread to blockading the local kind of tax office. They've been standing outside the, the Justice ministry stopping the minister from accessing the office and they also went around to a lot of the g twenty consul-generals that are based in, in Hong Kong to try and raise awareness of the situation in Hong Kong to all of these countries that will be attending the summit that's going on right now in Asaka in Japan. So it's I guess they're trying to maybe internationalized the protests and they've been using some quite clever ways of raising awareness during during a lot of the big protests, there were people Ray. Raising money raise in a donation boxes. And one one person actually started a crowd funding project, too. And it raised over five million dollars, very quickly, which is about half a million pounds. And they used that to, to buy adverts in about ten inch national newspapers. Some some listeners from around the world might have seen these whole page adverts in places like the guardian Neil times, which with a massive headline that says you stand with Hong Kong think that this request that, I think, pro- Cain terminent, three the permanent to the still Schumer boom to, to raise this with China's president. She's in ping, at the g twenty do you think that, that's likely? Well, I guess a lot of our attention will be on the big meeting tomorrow between President Trump and seeking and see whether the US president actually brings it up. I guess we of us in a very, very surprised and impressed. It's the prime minister Shinzo Ave, permissive. Japan he raised it when he met with Xi Jinping yesterday. So all the reporting on that meeting is, is about the warming relations between China and Japan, you know, touristy to a poor relationship those two neighbors, and they're making a lot of progress to, to kind of patching that shop in preparing for presidency to make a statement since Japan. But despite that kind of loving prison, Abbott did actually raise the topic of Hong Kong as well as the way that China treats the weakest in, in western China. So I mean it's quite we'll impress that, that he did that. And I guess the owners will be on other world leaders who attending the G twenty to bring this up when they meet with. See, now we understand that reports have been circulating online about plans to disrupt the flag-raising ceremony, which marks Hong Kong returned to Chinese rule on July the first that protesters are planning something big for that. Yes. So every July the first since the return of Hong Kong to China, there's it's been a day, both kind of celebrating Hong Kong's return to China for, if you're going to pro Beijing, pro government side and actually on the other side for for protesting. So every morning on July the first is an official flag rate raising ceremony, where all the government and the chief executive turnouts to, to raise both the Hong Kong flag and the China flight. And this, this event was attended by teaching being a couple of years ago when to celebrate the twentieth anniversary of the of the handover this year. They've the government is pad back there celebrations, it's going to be a much smaller of fat in previous years. They send out invites to, to a lot of people, a lot of lot of journalists, a lot of student groups a lot of these kind of uniform uniform groups like the, you know, the cub scouts and scouts and stuff, but this year they've they. They're not inviting a lot of students in not inviting these kind of uniform groups, because they want to, to limit the, the capacity for for students to disrupt these events. They've already students plan starting to plan how they going to protest. They'll certainly be protests in and around the area. It's just a case of how I mean how visible they are and how they if they're able to get inside and actually disrupt the proceedings. Funny is tiny gets more digitally, authoritarian all protest, making any attempt to go analog to avoid trucking. And there are reports of organizers using paper notes instead of any kind of tech. Well, the big thing during the recent protests, as you saw just a whole wave of Hong Kong, sign up to two telegram. And I mean it shows it shows how sophisticated these things are getting that on the day of the very violent protests on on on Wednesday night. That's when telegram received denial, sieves attack which originates in China, so not only did the Hong Kong sign up to use it. But the Chinese realized this and tried to shut it down Hong Hong Kong kind of operates in both worlds. I it is it is kind of very digital, but it's also very, very analog, one of the most interesting things about the protests in two thousand and fourteen was, how creative Hong Kong are when it comes to sign age and would play and some, you know, some of the funny protests posters that they create the, you know, the Cantonese of a very good at that when it comes to, to protesting with the cards and signs so. It's, it's, it's one of the skill sets it's not something they have to necessary revert to because it's not it's not something they gave up on. So I mean, even if even if the Chinese were able to, to bring down a lot of the digital ways of staying in touch, it's not going to stop protesters from, you know, making them message loud and clear, James, thank you very much. Indeed, Monaco's Hong Kong bear chief that James chambers. And I'm sure we'll be checking back in with him on July, the first to see exactly how those protests pan out. We turn our attention now to Miami where the second debate of democratic presidential hopefuls has taken place. Ten candidates took to the stage one day after another ten candidates in the crowded field vying for the democratic nomination spot in the Florida city will last night. Former vice president, Joe Biden, and Senator come the Harrison California, spoke, the most where Biden was constantly under fire, Monaco's colossal, Rabelo takes us through the debate. This evening across the US all is chained into the second bait of the democratic presidential primaries ahead of the twenty twenty election. The twenty candidates were divided into two nights and last night situation was a much anticipated one with four of the ten leading democrat candidates in the polls facing off on stage ahead of the debate. There were high hopes for former vice president, Joe Biden, and Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders who've consistently pulled into top two spots, and following that rial were California's Senator Kamala Harris and south bend mayor Pete boot adjudge leaving six other candidates to try and make themselves heard and boost their on campaigns. Tonight's debate followed a similar structure to the first one, one half. Looking mainly at healthcare, and immigration and another taking on his shoe such as gun control climate change and foreign policy. But if on the first night, there wasn't a clear winner. The same can't be said about last night in a surprise twist Kamala Harris gave an excellent performance outshining, her rivals, including Biden and Sanders. She took control of the evening early answering the moderator's questions dead on instead of using her time to push a message about twenty minutes into evening and the debate hut turn into a shouting match. Her voice was the only guys. Hey guys, you know what America does not want to witness a food fight? They wanna know how we're going to food on their table. In the second half of the night. There was a discussion about racism and how to handle the recent police shooting as mayor of south bend, Indiana. And it was here that Harris to control of the whole debate, she stopped the conversation and turn to Biden and immediately changed the dynamic of the night. Now, director, vice president Biden. I do not believe you are a racist. And I agree with you. When you commit yourself to the importance of finding common ground, but I also believe personal and I was actually very it was hurtful. To hear you talk about the reputations of two United States senators who built their reputations and career on the segregation of race in this country. And it was not only that, but you also worked with them to oppose busing. And there was a little girl in California, who was part of the second class to integrate her public schools, and she was bused to school every day, and that little girl was me. The sheer fact that she could take on Biden turning his steady performance from the beginning of the night into a week one by the end show. How Harris is a strong candidate that should be taken seriously. There were a couple of other highlights to bunny Sanders platform continues, very strong and pretty much unchanged from twenty sixteen. The specially on the issues of Medicare for all, and free access to college education. But if in the last election cycle, he was seen as someone at the extreme end of the political spectrum last night show that one of his biggest challenges might be that this time around. Most candidates have adopted his ideas, people, the country who watching this debate or so. These are good people. They have great ideas. But how come nothing really changes how come for the last forty five years wages have been stagnant for the middle class? How could we have the highest rate of childhood poverty? How come forty five million people still have student? How come three people more wealth in the bottom half of America and here is the answer? Nothing will change. Let's we have. The guts to take on Wall Street, the insurance industry, the pharmaceutical industry, the military industrial complex and the fossil fuel industry. If we don't have the guts to take them on, we'll continue plans will continue to talk and the rich will get richer, and everybody else will be struggling during the debate over healthcare, in particular on the Medicare for all plan. Vice president, Joe Biden was asked about what he would do considering he was one of the people behind Bama care. He answered would a very personal story. This is very personal. When? My boyfriend daughter killing all real action. My two boys were very badly injured. I couldn't imagine what it'd be like, not had adequate healthcare available immediately. And then when my son came home from Iraq after year was diagnosed with terminal cancer, and he's given much solidif-. I can't fathom what would have happened. If in fact, they said, by the way, the last six months of your life. You're on your own. We're cutting off. You've used up your time. The fact of the matter is that the quickest fastest way to do. It is build on ObamaCare to build on what we did. Pete jazz experience as a mayor showed on stage. He's a very good speaker and despite the probing questions some of which he circled around gracefully, he was spot on in foreign policy issues. It's important to note that he was the only veteran onstage last night. But perhaps his best moment was on the issue of family separation at the border. And when he called out the Republican party for what he described as hypocrisy the Republican party. Cloak itself in the of religion. Now, our party doesn't talk about that as much largely for very good reason, which was, we are committed to the separation of church and state, and we stand for people of any religion and people of no religion, but we should call out hypocrisy when we see it and for a party that associates itself with Christianity to say that it is okay to suggest that God would smile on the division of families at the hands of federal agents that God would condone putting children in cages has lost all plan to ever use religious language against debate was as lively as many of us expected. But maybe not for the same reasons what is obvious. Is that Joe Biden emerges from the evening would a question Mark over his front runner status and that wild? Bernie Sanders didn't flow. He didn't create an impact eater. Tonight's crown goes to California. Governor Kamala Harris, and with it a much needed boost to her campaign, but we should keep. In mind. There are still many days to go until the twenty twenty election. And we should always remember, Donald Trump lost all three debates. He took part in for Monaco in Los Angeles. Carlotta rabelo. Thank you very much to call us. This is the briefing. Tika Kamara is an award-winning sherline can writer and poet who's been held in police custody. Since April first he was arrested because he wrote a fictional short story about life in a Buddhist temple story, which allegedly makes reference to child sexual abuse involving members of the clergy, the detention south Camara, has joined condemnation from organizations, such as pen, international claim freedom of expression is at stake, insure Lunka Roach, a global campaign to free south Kamara. Rachel jolly is editor index on censorship, magazine and join me earlier where I started by asking to tell us what has happened to shut Teela, Kamara. Case where an writer as an award-winning writer has written a piece of fiction, and he he's a writer poet. And he's written a short story could out and posted on his Facebook page, the short story Infos Buddhist monks, and a theme of child apiece, and high mistakes, reality, some Buddhist monks since Lanka have found the story offensive and they've insisted the, the ROY was locked up. So it's very worrying case for what happening sterling in times of press freedom in terms of freedom banks, pression would generally an all say a trend with seeing lively about righteous being attacked for hunting facial stories that is the very point to fiction those. It's made up. That's right. And you know the role of all to push boundaries. I mean, all altspacevr. Everywhere. And that's what they want today. They often tackle controversial things, and that's what they see their role in society in doing one of the very warning things about this story is the of course, there was those almost a press blackout in Arlington around the story. And it's mine was in detained in prison, and it wasn't being reported in our life itself, and to it started to be covered internationally. And it is very definitely religion, this particular case. That's right. And it's, it's a case of religious groups getting involved in the law. I mean, and as we see internationally and can be very, very dangerous and very worrying and it does raise questions about what's happening for Lenka right now, and it's current state of democracy because how can these put his monks in the Arinze be put in prison? How could they have that power? They should have the same as everyone else to, you know the. Right to be to have an opinion to protest if they feel like it, but not soon someone. The top and seems light that some of us are linked compresses is worried about the controversy of the stories worried about finding religious groups, the they haven't they haven't covered this story tool until later when the international attention has been focused upon, it sure anchor is not the only place where this is happening. I mean you may have seen the story about L if recently no, the award-winning rights touch to this time, and she's being investigated in Turkey for, for some of the some notables. And she said that, since that was announced quite recently. He's received thousands of pieces messages in just a couple of days because a prosecutor has said that he's examining the themes in novels and one of the sexual abuse of children in touch richer. Shift. Actually, what they should be doing. The very real cases of turn to be Hutley in tacky. And why isn't the retention on that rather than a fictional story? No. I know that the group pen international energy juror in group index on censorship, looking very much at the shallan case also at Shafak another case, the, the you'll birth championing is L, ton in also in Turkey now, we've interviewed him here monocle, and I think you've just spoken to him to remind us of his case and tell us what he said to you. We do a an Inskeep with him from prison and alternatives from a very famous journalistic family in Turkey, and he's now serving a life sentence. He's a novelist, and I'm journalists and he's hazing in Joe right now, doesn't look like much of hang released. He's, he's written controversial journalism throughout his career. He's, he's tackled subjects that the government in. He draw the he hasn't. He's his fall. That was also well known as a protester against the government. He said he sent to us, he owed through my life, I have questioned what's going on in terms of all countries doing calling for more democracy coating for a law that protects individuals. And he's, he's saying that the government now is breaking the shout of democracy into pieces and those no longer even the. Image of state in law, but he did say he was really he really took heart from the fact that people still talk about his case, and that he wanted us to tell readers, but just thinking about him gave him hope. And, and in smiling in his cell is really important. The actually international attention can really help people in the second stunts just mostly but will say in, in bringing intention, we put pressure on different governments around the world. Yeah. Well, let's just talk a little bit then about how people can get involved to, to bring to bed that pressure penance. No, snow and look at that website a calling on people to act in different ways. And we would support in terms of writing and writing to this nineteen holding them to account and tweeting about making making statement on social media. We also often with this, it's really about making a foster. And making countries noticed that. So I the national borders, people paying attention to what's going on in that time really make a difference, and that was Rachel from index on censorship magazine. And you can hear interviews with both met L time under leash avec on Kaif. You're listening to the briefing. It's twelve fifty one here in London. Which makes it sir teen fifty one in Madrid when Monaco's annual quality of life conferences, underway, and Tom Edwards is that Tom tell us way you are an why are you there? I am here, presiding the radio desk in one of the extrordinary co. Khandu K here in Madrid extraordinary Olsen, military facility, repurpose, modernize and now take an boy, the quality of life conference crater twenty nineteen with in extraordinarily sunshine. I think the cure is not jinked boaty, you can hear the chocolate robot bound to appraise and also easing into ELO, the busiest man hair today or shave Tyler rely robots targets heavy on the on the show. Let's start with you. Maybe some kind of Novus listeners to break really understand what we mean. When we talk about quantitative, I'll that gives us the second prime, sir. Thirty second primer, this is this is your five Tom of, of the conference, but it's the thirteenth edition, which is just at newsstands last week, where we ranked the world's most livable city. So this is a story, we've been committed to for a very long time since the very is the very first July August issue the magazine, and this is a measure of what makes succeed and fail and all. Of the people and the brands and the interventions involves in making that happen. And so we do that, of course, on page, of course, a variety of ways across radio and films, many other things, and then and then I think it really comes to life at this conference, though. And just been a morning amazing discussions ranging from your, the very sexy talk topic that you tackled very well with two standings speakers on data privacy and really become sort of much bigger sort of digital discussion about what we're living through, and looking at hospitality and talking to Adam moss about how do we chronicled our cities as journalists and robe being busy, you actually sort of kicked off with the first chat? We try and kind of think a picture, using how words of the city we are in the country, where we are what it really means to be. Imagine Lia from Spain. Tell us just briefly about about that, because there's a great way to kick healthy. We were lucky to have ego. Amid as Gusta proud of the editor and chief founder of Salau magazine, kick things in sprightly style. The man looks as I said, on stage like a kind of spoilt seventeenth, century Spanish, princeling with a with a with a lovely tightness, Matadouro posture. He's got the velvet slipper become about and these. There was a lot of very good proportions. Yeah. Slightly trims and making look up talk. Yeah. And, and then a lot of accessorize velvet shoe. Yeah. I like the fact that he was talking about his favorite Roman emperor, and then produce the coins. Yeah. On a chain around his neck. Yeah. He's pretty good. He's gonna stop. So that was trying to define why we're why we were in Spain, the things that he gets rolling things that people misunderstand about the things probably get around the microphone later. Can can have from him. But the chairs the chairs wide enough for his pantaloons. Voluminous. Seraing in, in the in the welcome breeze wheel. We'll talk about what goes on in the margins of these kind of events, they sort of interesting things that happen by design, and it's, it's fundamentalism to what this event is we like to get people together. We like to challenge people to mate with people in industries businesses that might be necc- all natural bedfellows, and city. Can they work on two together? You already staying. For sure. I see just behind your left shoulder this conversation. I know because I, I entered do people on the topic of gentlemen, from Madrid, and they look at residential development, and there's so much going on here, and I'm almost a little bit Hannes. We approached the top of the hour because we have to have two hundred people bass across the room the courtyard. I'm going to be presented supposedly to get supposedly three minutes from now. That's not going to happen. We've been running things, but this evidence out here of people coming together and having a series of, of extrordinary discussions. That's why don't we let you slink this link get back to the states is going to be anchoring things from the top of the hour. Georgina here Madrid. I just briefly. You didn't get sick leave quite so easily you'll still busy this often. We also left. What are you looking forward to about the alternate sessions? Okay. So with Andrew high conflict correspondents got run. Heavy Nikola Anna and Craig respectively. Dri photographer, whose works being used. No journalistic work. It's the kind of quality of and what sort of arrested as being actual will try in the Hagen the rest of it, because I making French journalist who was captured by and we'll, we'll skate around that he's very interested in causing himself as historian of contemporary times rather than merchant of dubbing do I in a crate. Craig. Maybe with the name amazing on. Oh, yes. So that is wonderful people that will be continuous in hospitality Fame's before skates into the sangria allowed sangre of field. It would win even hitting the dance floor and until o'clock in the Saturday morning say is apparently type until five AM all later, so we'll see. So. Can say sorry we have seen you. Gaming's what he says, Joe Jana back to you. Thank you very much. I'm deeply envious here in London of the sangre field, nightlife, and indeed of watching robust and breakout some moves on the dance floor. I'm quite so that will be a site not to be missed. We'll be hearing more from the quality of life conference, image, it throughout the day, and hopefully will be checking in during the weekend too. So to the show here, the headlines, the world leaders gathering in the Japanese city of Asaka for this weekend's g twenty summit, France may record its highest ever temperatures today as a heatwave continues to sweep across Europe and demolition, experts in Italy have blown up, what remained of the Morandi bridge in the city of Genoa, and that's all for this edition of the briefing. It was produced by Daniel Bates research by Girling an ROY Goodrich, a studio manager with Kenya's scarlet the briefing is back a Monday at the same time, but I'll be with you for the weekend addition tomorrow, I do hope that you're able to join me, I'm.

New provides solid and sustainable solutions. Islands strives to do it right with passion every day. Stay tuned to the briefing to hear. Exactly how allience does it on. Alliens for life Hello and welcome to the briefing coming to live from studio one here at Midori. House in London. I'm Tommy twits coming up today. We'll have the very latest as the world's leading health body tries to coordinated global response to the corona virus pandemic also ahead Monaco's Latin America Affairs correspondent Lucinda. Elliot will be assessing. The situation in her. Adopted Homeland. Lockdown is in place by decree in some Brazilian states like where I am in Rio but barely sixty percent of the population are observing it. Thanks senator plus the. Uk's four ambassador in Afghanistan will tell us about a power-sharing agreement in the country and our contributing editor Andrew Miller will also have a roundup of his favourite more positive stories from around the world. This week the Bundesliga returned to German football stadiums at the weekend. Although the fans didn't Borussia Dortmund's celebrate of their four nil topping of shocker with therefore somewhat muted ammo besides ahead here on the briefing with me Tom Edwards now the World Health Assembly annual meetings in Geneva don't gain terrific international traction but this is virtual gathering is hugely significant the events likely to be dominated by the global response of course to the pandemic. They'll also be heated discussions about whether the island of Taiwan admitted to the assembly as an observer this time round. Let's get more on this with miracles editor James Chambers. He joins me on the line from Hong Kong. I'm Monaco's editor-in-chief Tyler Lay. Who's in our studio? Welcome back to the briefing. Both Tyler that come to you first of all before we talk about the World Health Assembly. Let's talk a bit about ever more. Open Zurich. How's that treating you will indeed an ever-more open Switzerland and some good numbers As well Coming Out Switzerland so Over the last twenty four hours no reported deaths in the country. But now we're moving towards single digits in terms of of new infections as well so The AG which of course is the federal health authority just reporting ten new cases In the last twenty four hours in Switzerland so very good news there and now really moving into two week number. Two Tom of the country being properly Open a few things Zoos you wouldn't be able to take your kids to up to the to Zurich Zoo yet but that is coming. It's coming early June. We're looking forward to a series of other announcements out of burn next week Which will really frame really the final lifting of a variety of other elements really those outstanding bits to bring society Fully back into gear tyler. I think the animals from Zurich should come to my house. That's a real zoo. They can look around anyway about the World Health Assembly. Look they're going to be talking about numbers like the ones you've described from Switzerland but the elephant in the room to continue the zoological analogy will be well Taiwan or not Taiwan of course whether virtual or otherwise what do you make of this alerts. Clearly it was an inevitable Meeting was not very much opposed in terms of China's position and Taiwan's eagerness to to to showcase their good handling of the of the crisis. But is there a risk here that you know the politics gets in the way of public health ultimately? Well this is it and and in many ways you could say that the. Who has painted themselves into a bit of a corner? Tom And I'm interested to hear our colleague. James at Hong Kong has to say. Because what have we heard over the last two months when they were accusing the world of finger pointing? This is not a time for politicking. We heard this is not a time for a blame game. So if it's time for politicking then We have to be addressing and hopefully addressing Tai- Taiwan in in a very friendly manner They're the ones who set it. So if this is the The body Who are coming out. And and we've heard you know very clear direction the fact that we are all in this together with the to look for a global solution Then it doesn't really leave a lot of room for maneuver now of course member states Voting on this it is a democratic process up to a point but I would say everything that we've heard of late. You know suggests that they should be all embracing if if so much of the narrative globally. Not just around the. Who not just in terms of. How do we approach a vaccine? How do we look at control has been about a world coming together Then I see no problem For Taipei being welcomed back. Well let's put it exactly that point then to James Chambers listening in in Hong Kong and we've been talking today about this this subject to new the the the vaccine issue of how we reconcile these very various positions whether that's in Taipei in Beijing. D- do you sense that there's any room for maneuver here particularly for Beijing while it's interesting how you know the. Who and general has been accused During this Year being too close to China. And I guess they're not doing nothing to hide from that. Because it just being announced today by Sin Watch the Chinese state media mouthpiece that President's Xi Jinping is GonNa be giving the opening address today so From not inviting Taiwan to attend tool. They've extended invite to the president of China to to be there. Make the opening address so clearly going to be no chance that This this vote on Taiwan potentially having any observer status is going to go into pass the Chinese newspapers and me organizations have been calling it a gas and and backed by a handful of nations. So there's there's certainly people who are looking at the headlines and expecting a potential close votes on this Shouldn't be fooled if I can come. Jews interesting talking to James and our friend is about and Elliott stay on the station about the US narrow hair and clearly they have a vested interest given their criticisms of the W. H. O. and China indeed of You know putting away and needling at this this open sore because it suits their narrative right now but I think it was James Elliott. Who pointed out. It's a risk for smaller countries like Taiwan to sort of rely on support from the US. Because once it's expedient for the trump administration to move on something else they'll just be be left behind how how cautious to countries like. Taiwan need to be that You know the. Us will happily sort of endorse every wall at soups. And but then they'll they'll quickly lose interest what we've seen it also. The Taiwanese are quite crafty In terms of engaging other nations as well but of course there is always a risk of of certainly Putting while potentially too few eggs in a basket which you think is you know rather trustworthy dot being a reliance on on Washington but I think the bigger issue is is here. in James's penned James pendlebury piece in our in our June issue. Really exploring not just the Taiwan story but also looking to create well looking at of course the place where he's broadcasting from Hong Kong and looking at at what is best practice certainly every element But what are the lessons that we've learned and if we're talking about observer status to be able to have a Taiwan around the table which is done in story job unless a number of media outlets as not just us have been shining a light on what the government out of out of Taipei has been doing they? I I really believe that they that they do deserve some type of see some type of a of audience and it looks. It looks foolish on the part of of not just any. You know other governments as well and certainly when we're also seeing calls office Australia leading a bit of the charge of for some type of Tribunal investigation would ever want to call it focusing on what happened In Han were of course seeing some noise out of Berlin and Paris around this as well you would think that they're also that needs to be a level of support when we look at how to approach these things in the future and that somehow there needs to be some airtime Four Taiwan Tonga. Thanks so much for being with us. Good you another busy week on the agenda presumably for you well. I think I'm going to be taking this very seat. You're in well at least the seat. I bet you do know that we stand to do the program In Zurich at Tom Lee. We won't sort of sort of all stretched out like you are in in London. We like to keep it rather pert here so I I think I'm going to be the briefing Across two days this week. But we'll be looking forward to chatting to you across the week. Great stuff taller. We'll have a good day and people. Listen and look out for Tyler on this show During the week James Chambers if I can just come back to you briefly in Hong Kong the risk of asking you an impossibly sort of open ended question. What prospects do you think of any kind of meaningful moves one way or the other With this spat between between China and Taiwan. It's it's such an interesting narrative and in the background. There's this question about whether they'll be more in-depth investigation into the onset of the the epidemic. Going right back to the beginning. Any prospects that this week can. We'll tell us anything really decisive. Well as you said from at the start on this is case of the politics crowding out the public health. I think the the the Taiwan issue is is a bit of a distraction of a redhead. Harring the focus should be on that much bigger and more important votes on whether there should be an independent investigation into how the WHO behaved during this time and then also into the origins of the the pandemic itself you can see over the last Few days you know China has certainly been backtracking. And it's you can see that it might realize it has to come around to accepting some kind of investigation and it's kind of now trying to push for that to be conducted by the. Who So this this proposal? That's being put forward by the European Union has a lot of backings over one hundred countries rather than the couple of dozen pushing the Taiwan. One so This is one probably is of more importance right now and to the whole world and we should all hope that some progress is made on that indeed. James always good to hear from you out of Hong Kong. Now is Monaco's James Chaves in Zurich before that as well. Yeah with the briefing here. Live on monocle. Twenty four well. Let's head to Brazil next on the program to get an update on a major story. That was moving over the weekend. The number of corona virus cases has jumped significantly our correspondent in Rio de Janeiro. Cinder Elliott has. This Brazil is fast becoming the epicenter of the Corona virus pandemic. Perhaps it already is. Cases are up fifty percent this past week on Saturday. The country explain initially in the number of daily confirmed cases. It's a very steep curve. One medical professionals have warned cannot be slowed unless social distancing is observed. Distancing is exactly what's not happening in part because the president appears to be on a crusade to end lockdown measures and get the economy moving. Look down in place by decree in some Brazilian states like where I am in Rio Barely. Sixty percent of the population observing it over the weekend. I received a voice note from a local health secretary three small towns in the rural heartland of the country. She was asked wit's end a couple. You had symptoms on Wednesday. She had told to stay home the very next day the wife he was also heavily pregnant. Call to check if her husband's test results with back because they wanted to go and visit family further outside of town. They left in their car. Anyway and the uncles shed a barbecue with a now feeling unwell. Lack of clarity over measures to stop it spreading federal level and the fact that the executive doesn't actually believe that the viruses as deadly as people make out means guessing through to people about isolation is hugely difficult in a continental sized country like Brazil to health. Ministers have resigned this past month one on Friday morning after clashing with President Bolsonaro. Brazil begins the week with the new interim Health Minister General Pastula military man who is likely to follow orders from his superiors. Thousands of lives could now depend on how long he sticks around and on the chances that the president changes his team that was more because Latin America affairs correspondent Lucinda Elliott. Let's get more on this now with our resident Brazilian federal no Augusta per shake AU fait. Good afternoon to you Even you perhaps the most upbeat and optimistic person that I've ever met but even you must just find the numbers The nature of the challenge that Linda's described very eloquently for us. They're just downright terrifying. Isn't it tone very much terrifying? And you know what to lose a second health minister in less than a month. That's quite a lot in the middle of a pandemic and of course you know they had to choose an interesting one which is generally duardo. Put swallow but we have to remember. He doesn't have any any health background. I mean he's just another military man and that brings his the nine out of twenty two ministers that come from a military background. I wonder if you have a solution Tom because from what I can read I mean the government has no plan and the number of deaths keeping rising have more cases than Italy and Spain at the moment. That's that's very worrying well and indeed Fernando not just this Under qualified and a over represented military men in the in the cabinet. But if we look a bit about Boston are listen to us talking about him now. We know his personality. We know his politics if anything he he seems to be becoming day by day ever more set in his ways about this refusal to acknowledge Or ENDORSE SOCIAL. Distancing measures this refusal to even countenance pushing back on reopening businesses. I mean he is playing fast and loose with the health potentially of literally millions of Brazilians. No absolutely any my opinion. Tony he he is even worse than trump of course which is another popular. Spend at least be acknowledged that there's something happening. Tanada is just is just completely oblivious to that for example one of the changes in their health plan is that they will allow more clerking treatments in Brazil. Even though it's not been proven that will this will fix the health of people in fact one of our former health ministers Monday. He said if this is allowed this would just create more deaths in the country for absolutely no need. Because you know why are they allowing something that hasn't been kind of scientifically proven In a way so yes. It is very scary. Indeed Flan looking forwards where we then for a counterpoint to this scenario is a quite entrenched like trump his popularity with his base remains seemingly pretty committed despite the the daily beast rise in statistics Where should we look? Where can we look fern? Attorney Voice? Is it a question of some aspects of the independent more left leaning press? Shortly there must be some political opposition. That can galvanize support because of the gravity of the situation or is it one of these unfortunate cases where we need to listen to people without Brazil. Voices from outside commenting. Is there any like the end of the Tunnel Full Brazilians? Well as you know like to be optimistic I. It is very hard to sit as light on. But there's definitely some voices in the country as we've discussed in the past there some governors. They're doing a great job remember. We have local elections later this year. Even though for some reason the press is not covering that a lot maybe. They think that they might have to be postponed and his interesting again that the voices were hearing a lot from the centre-right as well. I think the left has been fairly quiet and also very scary that Stewart third of the country supports both scenario. I think those kind of supporters there no matter what scenario did I mean. He did quite a lot of things. They will vote for him forever. I mean I would like to understand that I mean it. It is just very hard and I think even brilliant political commentators are still trying to analyze that and we've seen this phenomenon in other parts of the world as well of course phenomenon. Always good to hear from you. Thanks for your insights. That was our own experts in Brazilian politics and culture. Tornado Gustavo. Shaka Yeah with debriefing here on Monaco. Twenty four as part of the programs partnership with E. and we're bringing you stories demonstrate alliances commitment to securing people's lives off. The pollyannas has been working hard to do just that to give courage to its customers for what's ahead because allience knows how important it is to have a fair partner at your side. Stay tuned to the briefing to hear exactly allience. Does it an allowance for life? Have you heard the late edition on? Monaco twenty four now more than ever. The time is right for a global conversation that cuts through the white noise and brings clarity genuine insight and just the right tone to news and analysis if you todd of strident anchors and the wearing pace of the news ticker enjoying. Monaco's editors every week day the late edition a lively friendly and forward-looking kick around the day's main stories. Posted each evening edited from Zurich London. Toronto and New York City. The Late Edition Premieres at Twenty Two hundred C. T. Twenty one hundred in London sixteen hundred nyc and thirteen hundred in Los Angeles. And if you miss it you can hear it again. Three hours later. The latest edition weekdays at Sixteen Hundred Eastern time on monocle twenty four. You'll back with debriefing on Monaco. Twenty Four. I'm Tom Edwards. A major power sharing deals been reached in Afghanistan. Let's find out more on this with Sir William Patey. Who is the? Uk's ambassador in the country between two thousand ten and two thousand twelve William good to speak with you good afternoon and gives a little bit of an insight into exactly what's been agreed. Well I mean you. You've had the you had the election some months ago in which I Sheriff. County one but Abdullah Abdullah the Chief Executive Refused TO ACCEPT THE RESULT. So this been a bit of a standoff with both parties having separate presidential inaugurations this rather mirrors the previous election in which Abdullah Abdullah refused accept the result and as a consequence of a deal made post that election. He became seal. So this is a this is another deal between the two main political. Plas- enough Kinda Stan. Now if we look at his remarks as talked about making a more inclusive accountable and and competent administration all of which I suppose would be welcomed by any stakeholders or any observers for that matter But is it just too early to say whether that is a genuine sort of aspiration everybody can buy into well? The thing about this dealers. That della has become responsible for the peace deal with the Taliban the Higher Council and he was one of the most sceptical say that will use so the Taliban. We'll know they're up against someone who's not GonNa take the promises for granted and and he gets half against to nominate house the Cabinet but they've but unlike the previous deal President Ghani will be the chief executive he will be the president and he'll be in charge of running the government should make things a bit smoother Half the half the ministers will be nominated by I suppose if they're incompetent President Ghani can go back up Man Or woman is not is not performing. You need to give me somebody else. So it could should make for clearer lines of communication and it should make a more united Afghan government position. It any good with the Taliban and presumably for those reasons you know you're a sexiest eight. Mike Pompeo's welcomed at NATO has broadly as well William. Perhaps if we don't know even if we go back a few years to your your time in in the country wh what needs to happen to get this broader by and to ensure that a an opportunity at least for some momentum here that it's that it's that it sees things drive. Forwards is it a question of confronting head on the most profound challenges or actually doing anything but and trying to get some small wins to get to get the ball? Rolling does? Does your experience give you any insights into what the next steps might need to let like. Well I think you've gotta you gotta get on with government. The governments go to deliver So they're gonNA THEY'RE GONNA be Veasley comforted but of course they are facing a Taliban insurgency and Soak i-islamic state insurgency as well so the government has got problems and what they want to do is to keep the keep you support a line. If the Afghan position is a more united position. That is obviously good the problem is that the Taliban have never really cicely accepted a political process in the country. That's their main strategic aims to get the US out at at minimal cost to them. And I hope that they can take over so the problem. Is You know the the deal is good in the strengthens. The Afghan government's position in order to deal with the problems in the country and to resist the Taliban. But there's a long way to go yet in data along road ahead. Thanks for making sense of it for us. That was the case former ambassador in Afghanistan. So William Patey joining us here on the briefing or Monaco. Twenty-four a clock. Exactly twenty four minutes past the hour. Let's wrap today's program with some of the more positive stories on our radar. The floor belongs to Monaco's contributing editor. Andrew Miller welcome to the seventh of these weekly forays in search of things which relative to the current circumstances can be said to neither suck nor blow it. He's not the easiest oversaw inmates most. Obviously because pretty much everything does I the will blow and also because one does not wish to sound completely tone deaf. There was a reason. Why the titanic? Bondsman struck up. Abide with me as the propellers cleared the water and not for example. This way yes. We know that couldn't have happened anyway because Brian. Hyland didn't have a hit with that until nineteen sixty. We don't have anything else to do up. Random nonsense online either. Nevertheless there are some portions of lockdown planet. Winching color just a little bit on Friday. Slovenia breezily declared its covert nineteen outbreak. Officially over with only thirty five new cases recorded in the previous fortnight face coverings will remain mandatory and large gatherings to Bid League for at least the rest of this month but the country at large will reopen significantly. He you citizens will no longer be required to quarantine upon arrival in Slovenia and those wondering where they can actually take a holiday. This year could do a lot worse. Slovenia is delightful and much underrated country the dreadful music you'll hearing beneath. Fisk incidentally is from a two thousand seventeen Slovenian tourism adverts moment not only have we subjected. I'll listen to it. We've put it in there at no charge Slovenia listening. Just imagine what this segment would be willing to do for sponsorship New Zealand another country which has handled the pandemic with both confidence and competence or further east gets locked and provided an illustration of its unfussy while doing Prime Minister Justin to album and her pop decided to celebrate the reopening of cafes in Wellington by visiting all of one of their favorites. Who Need to be told that due to social distancing measures still in place. There wasn't room for them. A statement from our office later clarified that this was as it should be the. Pm says she just like everyone else. Alan does well has burnished. Its image further hearts warmed last week by an Irish fundraiser. Now nudging four million. Us Dollars for native American reservations struggling amid the pandemic repaying the favor done in eighteen forty seven when the choctaw people had a whip Brown for the Irish during the potato famine this week a smaller scale but no less generous gesture staff laid off from the Irish branches of Deblum Department. Store have despite their own difficulties dark deep for their colleagues in debonair Bangladesh Liaison Office clothes factories. They've raised more than fifteen thousand euros. It has been a marginally better week. The sports fans hitherto driven to conflicting an interest in South Korean baseball go use Samsung lions or the Belarusian primarily come on if C. Torpedo Beleza denote. The Bundesliga returned to German football stadiums at the weekend. Although the finds didn't show Dortmund's celebrations of their four nil topping of Schulkin would therefore somewhat muted in the extremely likely event that it wasn't altogether clear. That was the sound of Borussia. Dortmund's play his gratefully applauding. The Empty Home Grandstand tragically full practitioners of humorous monologues by this stage of the global lockdown all possible variations on jokes about teams with notoriously. Low attendances not noticing. The difference have been done. This is a final ruling outstanding week for anybody who had diplomatic row between the People's Republic of China and Bryan Adams on their lockdown Bingo. The summer of sixty nine hitmaker lamenting the cancellation of a residency. At London's Royal Albert Hall made an intemperate outbursts on the Internet blaming covert nineteen on breakfast Chinese dietary practices he phrased it less delicately the Mac any backlash against the thought.

Gab and Juls: How can Frank Lampard get misfiring Chelsea going?

"The happy festive monday. I'm gab. He's jules we back baby. I'm not gonna ask you how your holidays. Because they're your tears talk about football presumably. Hey we've got to get into. We'll be talking about mess explosive interview. They're talking to party. Senator man We've got a full suite primarily plenty going on really tight at the top average in second in the table. How about top. But let's start with arsenal and chelsea and to do that. Let's talk to don hutchinson. John it was all crisis crisis crisis at arsenal. And if you wanted to fewer through a glass half full lands this out of the way too. Big three over over chelsea s. One three one or two at the casino but You have one is a penalty where tyranny kinda you know. He's clever playing. Wine is an unstoppable free-kick. You can do nothing about and the other one sokha's chip we love soccer but greg fantastique inspiration as somebody who scored his time didi mean that mission. I listened to the interview after the game. After seeing the goal young sokha said he meninges with his weaker foot last phenomenal player. I think we kid about this But let's not jesse because obviously they spend a lot of money there's been ups and downs. It's now what is it. Three defeats in their last. Four is any of this on frank. I think. I think i needed food would say i think it's a it's really picking saw where he thinks they're going to get three points. Run of algae spend three to four hundred. Baht whole needs to get flashlight. Hobbits jimoh applying. He's got a full show. You have to play james. All you have to play reese. James dot was a mistake. In my opinion. I understand playing benchellali because emerson's not good enough and trusted so yes. Frank's watch for the same on the pleasure garden. A hell of a lot more you since you said he needs to play get guy playing. Joel's we a little bit. I'm not one hundred percent. Sure you need to get you need to win games and get points and build something converts. He's been in. He's been ill he's out. Can you afford to play haver because you feel shoehorned into the team every time but if you painting his position to start with which we send many times on this show which is probably behind. The striker does his best position. You need some creativity within. Do you put mason mount. But you find a way of playing mount and harvest together. Which i think. Desperate salonpas job to find a way of doing that. he did. we saw the kante. Mount halfords midfield several times. Didn't out great. No no but that's true. But then then maybe you give to rest. And now the play on tuesday on monday even against aston villa and maybe the right time to raise money. I just think the lack of creativity against for over an hour was just. He's more done. That's one of the. That's one of the big things. Look as we say this obviously chelsea play if you hours maybe the nail and everything's fine again but That lack of creativity that the gills talks about. He's not the issue or only watch the game on tv. But i thought part of the issue was one. Frank system worked. Well a time law season you had aggressive hungry players up to pitch. Who were who were pressing who are tracking back. We're helping out not leaving their fullbacks exposed. I didn't see that particularly from thima verner against arsenal. No you're right and not enough for quite a while. And i think it's time now and mike thing out to schools bolt really when a place blame by not a plane responsible into good all wanna pleasure in such a roach looks and they'll jaded and olympic time because this would normally be his wing a bright. Why would do i would. I was praying. Sorry on outside restroom. Approximately ten days been in the african cult- chelsea by them not might be the game where you earn oscar. Little rationed your goal to three over sudden. Competence comes back to before the team of verner he's used to have you know he comes from. The bundesliga is used to having those long winter breaks and chelsea do have alternatives up on the wings callum hudson and when he came on but then lost is one of the worst forty-five minutes i've ever seen from play in the premier league. This season have to be honest. I was dating the stage stage and this was pathetic. It was not even an under nineteen. Anyone would have been better than him he was. It was not possible to believe don. We brought up the fact that chelsea have been profound changes. Obviously we're talking about half a dozen new players. Is that an alibi. Alibi for lampard. How do you handle that. Because i always thought it might be difficult to develop chemistry. When gotta out playing time you have to keep everybody happy. I know we all say it's a long season. Oh it's a great problem to have too many players but when you so many players in key positions it's difficult to develop those what they call the automatisms in in in spain right. Yeah must be difficult when you build such a big squad and so manages to be tightened. Nuno it will. He likes the smallest one to small squad to work with. So you can only guarantee will eleven's going to be you know far too. You know one or two changes when you go to vegas score and trying to keep multi million pound plans. Hoppy real cost a fortune not only on their wages at price almost like justifying then playing. I think mike von franz by the jewish earlier is when i have a house played for chelsea. He's played in the fremont deal in the mid appeal. That's not his position even when you fly. And why or why. Not really his position. So you're going to build xiv and leepkai habits is at ten on think what franco frank's going to experience. I chelsea being a rookie manager is going to have the performance of the fullest lawsuit against sheffield united. That was one of the worst his watch and the west three three was a real nightmare scenario down and how they come back never note and i think he's young managers like catch only like frank when they're trying to compete with the likes of cloth. Gwadar merino back copies and do not again. you see. you're going to see a young. Frank included a really really know about one. A real box phones says some of the season. Okay we give him a few games to find the right formula. Get get get the right team in place is five months now and there's just nothing we still keep changing and the formation and the personnel. And these and you make the wrong substitution. Made the wrong choices. I mean. you know. There's a time where he needs to get right yeah. I don't think there's any question. He's he's got a lot options too. Many options no. Preseason hasn't been helped he needs to. He needs to work out of it. But i mean for me You'll get all right podcast listeners. You're still with us. Which means we can get a little bit more More granular until we get a second opinion with dr hutchinson. Here don are. We should we. We saw chelsea in the summer. We saw the guys they brought in. And i think the question mark for everybody was howard. These pieces going to fit together. And actually i had this question last year too because they have all these talented young players and with these guys you wanna give them. You wanna give them space on the pitch. But you're not sure. How many of these guys will follow you on your journey to go and become a title-challenging team personally. I made the point last year. That i thought of all their young players. The only ones who i could see down the road as starters on a champions league winning primarily winning side were reese james and callum hudson and if he goes back to being what he was before his injury now mason. Mount obviously shown a lot abraham's some showing something but in your head right when the season started and you saw these players. How did you see it working like how do you. What sense do you get a very. These are the choices he's going to make and starting perhaps for the center for forward position where you sign team of verner who was so affected for life because a lone striker although he's also has operated wide in the path is operated. Second striker was verner going to be a centre forward. Was i think when you is your spring His nailed are eleven. Would have been you know. Once he signed only go planners. I'm pretty sure it would be christian producing it would've been hackensack. It would have been kyw. Habits is ten and would it be seem going to nine and i think frankly team was going to come in on. Just be so good as number nine. It may be then could have left some brown on the bench and maybe allowed league asia route to move on team. We're gonna hasn't hit the ground rooms and nine shake that then he died my who's packaging jerusalem. Tom i wanna i just wanna follow up on that because you gave us that front. Four of verner Police itch sh and. It's probably harvard central that suggests to me a four two three one formation curious. Who would have to. Who would his to have been. Would one of them be mason. Mount this summer the summer mokobi pursue it would have been content with cova giorgio more likely to from those three and two or three to choose from debate. That is called competition places. That i'm billy gilmour down the road of course jewel. I like the formation front known. I like a foot of talent is very succeeds. Likely however don when franklin scientists and he went to seem in germany with with bc check. And that's how they got him away from liverpool who maybe didn't have the money anyway but he knew that tim overnight could not hold the border right. He knew that team could only play one. Way as a striker. She's made those great runs with all the pace in behind and that's how it was called goals right because really do anything else as a number nine. Why you can't play with his back to goal is not really good in the air econ. Hold the ball account link up the play. So i get your point. But when lump signed him you also. I'm really hoping he knew that you could not be the traditional number. Nine usa needing primarily. Because you don't always have that much space like she's doing the In pretty much every game here and just quickly just to define the term traditional number nine. You're not talking about an anti caroline sheer number nine encoding leave wairoa for example or not not necessarily big man but a guy who thinks like as as complete as possible bica different way by the number nine position. There's the traditional because you'd think big strong route him on the goals in the box and there's other strikes me who comes deep links to play. And i think and i'm not comparing the two october because tehran is on a level of a whirl t moderna but when jan murray was buying his and mine fossil he don't most of these look into the latter inside. Didn't they say as traditional number nine not talking in space. I think in an ideal world not initiate world. You can imagine team we're gonna stab instill in not number nine position. Then you've got zee action you go poodle sake. All from outweighed playing bowls in beyond down the channels down shot of the many quicker. And we'll bonus. I think i dare. I think hat whole to because he's he's been looked at what he does. Not like sagan actually got inside would have. Y'all gonna blame electron jerusalem some abram. I only thing is one window that there's only one number nine position and thus jerusalem lifetime jet. I dunno i for me personally. I think the way this team is you put to one side and letting never play him. But you say you've come here you've had no preseason you came. He came in september during international. Break your long term project. You're very very let me put you to one side and play you in certain situations but in. I'm not gonna make you central to this team not yet. You don't think you need creativity down the middle. We saw spurt nearly drove. Which was creativity comes from the wings all the time which is easy to defend against so first of all you can play hockey down the middle right. Yeah if if you wanna do that. But i think that the starting point has to be an should be with the way. This team has put together a document center forward. Tammy orgy ru either. Want also for another reason remember last year. This team gave up a million set-piece goals. Yeah both those guys are tremendous defensive header of the ball. And i think that matters as well. This is not a big team physically. A big team with the exception. For from the midfield onwards with the exception of of hearts and who's in great in the air he's tall and whoever put whatever wanted to place on forward right so you start with that. I think we might be. I think verner might have earlier. Police hadn't gotten hurt because police. It's obviously can play on the left hand side as well as the right hand side and then maybe you would have had hudson and doors on the right and you would have had a three midfield. I think the fact that amount had really good run. And i think he definitely if not him jody morris they have a soft spot for mount. And he's still have that declan rice asian mount fantasy in the background. Of course always edmund. Rice better. But i think done at this point though. I think they need to go for something. More settled i i like your idea of of sitting burner for awhile. You know trying. Something else there. But i think the basis of the team and right now the basis of the team. If you talk about the field. I think it has to be kante to out of and i'll say two out of gilmore if he's fit and obviously likes him kovic georgina because they really really struggle especially with the attacking fullbacks you. It's a big ask if you have now in the midfield three. We just put a tremendous amount of pressure screws. Everything up because gene in their kante runs himself into the ground. I mean surely that something he'd want to look i. I want to go back to something else you said about james are you. Are you not a fan. Of reese james on the speed that was on. The bench was sped because james and banjo well into the game. One hundred percent fit so he doesn't. He doesn't trust msn so he ought to play chiloe with a knock. And where. i think franco wrong in heinz shot. You should have played because weekdays on an injury and also when all dan they're left inside the jesse rutland also because police interest as right winger before switching a half time it. it doesn't defend enough to had reached. Who's not hundred percent fit so then when you got ta understand this correctly right. You're playing arsenal on boxing. Day and you play to unfit fullbacks. Knowing that in forty dollars time you have to pay the mighty aston villa. What can you explain this. Then why wouldn't you give them a few days to get fit. I couldn't i i. I'm not good enough. But whatever. I know i won't go there but they won't be the program and i. It was fascinating here. You guys told him that when you make a joke out loud you mentioned honestly must've mentioned about ten players were talking midfield upfront. Ten nine just propriety. Sports too big he might need to get rid of the few. That's always the issue the difficulty there. I mean i completely agree with you. The difficulty either way. What you mean is to be what so. Here's my thing right with big watts. But i think historically squad are successful. You have a hierarchy right. You've got eight or nine guys who clearly always play when i mean unless they're being arrested i chelsea you have too. Many question marks not enough automatic choices. If everybody's chelsea you go through your automatic choices are people who are clearly notch above. No they're notch above and no they're not going to lose your place to somebody else. It's actually very few players it's goal. Oh kante holdback five to start with. There's no there's no discussion on chagas silva isn't gonna play every game right but come on still. I strongly agree with that. So mandy james zuma silva and shilowa. He's trying to do. He's trying to do that right. So yeah so. It's it's the bell apart from the fact that i think ruediger might disagree with that. A little bit and ruediger might still think that he's better than kurt zuma but whatever but on franklin does shorts agreed so yep so you have the back five. I think the issue comes further. Updates where you've got a lot of players who are in the same ballpark in terms of ability and you as a club find it difficult to cut these people loose. They could look at this and say well. I can sell callum hudson and in the summer right i get some money for even though he signed this enormous contra by but then come back to haunt me if he goes off somewhere else and he turns into goodness knows what i think. That is a difficult part. I think the squad remember. The squad was even bigger in the summer when they still had barkley and lost his cheek. Yeah i think that's something. They're going to work on dawn but they're not going to solve their problem if they're still this uncertainty about hierarchy and and places until he says publicity minute winger verners laughing winger an alternate abraham and you figure out how down the road. We'll play with. Yeah and then. You've got the number. But i i just i just don't think that having all those options should not be a problem. You so lucky. In a way to have all those options all that talent and he should be a disadvantage can be a disadvantage jews. When people like. I'm not naming names in terms of their problem. But if you've got someone like halibut's noise is mentioned. It was rumored to be gone to germany. You know by a massive money for him. The hardly by too many minutes chelsea and older soden deal. Frankly thing do. I really want to let go knowing. This is gop. Said he could come back to haunt what i still know deep down. I'm taking my strongest kinda hudson annoying. Frank strongest eleven. Don't think is massive squad by reading prince much of a huge squad but if you wanna pick five minutes eleven in the biggest games. I'm pretty sure all three of us now would come up with at least nine of binstock jumpers eight final. We chelsea you like completely outfall plays lot buddha. Khan even got looking. I look for too many uncertainties. Wait wait to take in and actually sprang time to say. I strongest eleven. In the moment none of them are really putting around. Say me line. Good note that. That's i think that's the challenge in said along so we one of the most difficult things i think for landfall to figure out and it's not always vote to be fair you know. There's a lovers petit on the players. Yeah but also the players. Just do the best that they can. I mean every players motivated to try to play. Well that's the that's the sense. I mean he's point on his point on a boxing day was a worn them before the game. I said to them. It's not going to be easy. Don't they the game night. We don't take it for granted and didn't show. They didn't show. I would pay very little attention. To what frank lampard says. Stop because he's intelligent but because he knows the routine right we. We've all had time where we spoken to managers off the record and obviously clearly you don and you know that what they say to the andre villas boas great example. Right he is the exception. I don't know if he still does this in france but when he was years if you ask them a tactical question he go into extreme detail right and those of us who are losers who enjoy hearing about the stuff we loved it and that's why we all always have a special place in our hearts either people. Frank lampard. what are you going to say. What did you say verner track back today. And it caused imbalance here and there are no. He's not he's going to have some generic. Oh we were unprepared lack of ambition or whatever to be crossed with you. Because i would hope that when don correct me if i'm wrong here when lampert goes into his back room with little jody morris and they do an inquest about war wrong. He's not gonna talk in general terms about a general preparedness about wrong attitude lack of ambition. Right he's going to get specific but he's not gonna share it with us. What the specifics. Come after. You know the basics of the game in what you say and what frank said absolutely one hundred percent. He called these players orla time as manager. You want you pick your team vicky squad. It's so points on the place to grab before it has to be. You know i'm not really. I'm not really a fan of own modern day. Play on the lam or your car but them you go tech them at some point. I think frogs ryan. I don't think josie donated million times. Who yet to see gwalior do. It's not a scottish not Chipper plans under the bus chuck. Also terrible yeah. I think there's a difference though. Chuck him under the bus when you do it as a team when you name individuals which managers have don with some sometimes of success all the time so that's different all right final pointing to throw this out to both of you. It's a scenario right. When chelsea signed itch they acquired him and they left him on loan right for six months. Should they have done the same with saw in hindsight frigging question. I'm probably the yes but we want to know. He was going to get down covid. Lack of fitness chelsea not playing. Well what i think. If you want me to say yes. Or no i think yes yes easy not to say yes but we were all very excited when he signed even if you said you went ashore with the right profiling but you also said this is a long term project time. He's only even with peter boss. I tell you problem. There's peter boss. The problem is the same used. You stay with tobias pay completely. I started football different formation. He would come back in six months or year and the issue still be the same tools. We didn't get a chance to get into this on the last show because the news edge literally brought amp. But parsons your man. Have parted ways with thomas of course took them the champions league file last year. Smart money is one of those things where everybody's reporting it's going to be. Put your tino Hasn't been announced. I presume that has to do with the festivities and negotiating tools release. Yes that's right. Guard negotiating two-horse release severance package him and he's tough. He had like five member of stuff with him. He will cost. Pg around between seven and eight million euros to pay them all off. Walk me through this. Because the man is a contract until june thirtieth right. Now i know for a fact so that's six months wages now. I know for a fact he does not make fifteen or sixteen million a year. Twenty thousand euros. We don't do this. Monthly thing annual said told me in france. So let's duchess france also your brethren. This country's counts. What wait what about weekly wages that then. We took the month in france. Okay fine so he makes about seven and a half million euros a year Show half of that. three point. seven five million thought six months wages. just pay him that. And say duncan that is also bonuses as you know in in any contract players. There's there's bonuses for where you finishing the league the points that you gain you're gonna give a bonus for the fact that we started on the table. He's got he's got bonuses for how many points they've got bonuses for qualifying for the champions league last sixteen bonuses in every contract for every player every manager. Okay so this adds up to another between that and his staff wages ends up to another four million so yes i think i think he's on. He's on five. And then you add five members who also add some of more than six months left because some arrived a bit later etc etc. So he's base is more. It's not as much as long as input who was sacked along after extending is crazy enough. Who get it. But like i honestly the way i like this. You know i keep being drawn but whether it's players or managers clubs don't seem to understand that they are fewer big clubs managers and players and the way they fall in love with people and say we need to give you this massive contract. I mean at least he didn't extend to now after he got them champions league final but i did i just find this mismatch but they could have waited until the end of the season and so lame rundown his contract and they might have him on gardening. Leave which is what we do in italy. You can't do that. I mean you need till you wanted to stop at the same time working for four or five of them. I'd have to ho. yeah actually. He's been already linked build. Very helpfully thinking came to the chelsea job talked about chelsea earlier united at some point he would be linked with as well. Of course we don't need to go there But you know. Obviously he's played there before. I'm just wondering from his perspective. I guess he i mean he and allegra word of the eternal candidate. Ella he probably feels the need to get back into it very very quickly. Because he's gonna come and get into this further but he's gonna come to a pair. Is your man where you know. The party days are kind of over. Because you've had the pandemic began stopping you've got financial fair play. Is this the right move for him or should he. Maybe have hung around a little bit longer for ibm say ima- of waited six months until june or the summer and then the remedy job mark combat. United have come about exactly what it but no have come up either so if him what you do you think like okay. I can wait. I think he really wanted one day to go back to. Paris will be announced in the next few days now almost twenty years to the day after he joined as a player in january or one. And i think powell vs is managerial career in his head. How to stop in paris some point so i think he took a now in probably things is young enough maybe to then go to madrid or manchester united anywhere else. They would be time. But you certainly thought this was a really good. Even if he won't be able to spend two hundred million in january or next summer transfers he knows. This is really strong. Squad is assistant. Chris perez and meghan douglas in working on. You know the when. Go back from the holidays on june. The on january the third story and things like that. What point place to work fitness wise especially before the second of the season starts. So i think he's. He's very committed very excited. I think this makes jobs. I think this makes a ton of sense for pusher tino. Because you got to charge you win silverware. You get a stupid lou when something this year and then send your math podcast listeners. You're still with us now. Most people who don't follow psg illeg on is closely. They see this as a big glamour. Club the glamour city. It is the glamour sitting. They seem spending money. Throwing money around blah blah. We've talked before not have to be responsible. Going forward to victory. Had to be responsible for the last few seasons. Because you know the the screws returned on them with financial fair play. Which is why all those young players were sold and whatever looking at the squad now and there's obviously an enormous question mark with me modest future as there seems to be every single year and obviously shifting name. I'd means you free up a lot in terms of space. You can got more flexibility. But in the immediate. What is the squad knee what the squad need to have another run at the champions league this year and make sure that they don't screw up. Essay is very interesting. I think steve short of food box for example. I think forensics has done especially going forward but defensively is not the most solid as much as you love him you know. This is a winger. He learned to play right back. I left by bennett injured and although he was very good before. You don't in walker quirky. He's gonna come back off whenever he's gonna come back anyway and then behind you got cassava and mitchell baker and then. That's it so still think that that there's a problem. I think diane midfield they could do with a bit more creativity. maybe or sort more impact. They've like paradis like idrissa gay. Why don't think a good enough if you want to variety but you know he has to stay fit and he has to stay at the top of his fitness to be able to have an impact and we saw how different this team is. When he's on he's not but you need you need him and maybe someone else. Who's a bit like if you play four three three formation for example which they don't really have right now and they're not going forward if you call the can can finally go back the of the the best of is into time then defined okay so figuring out what they can do. 'cause obviously they've been linked to christian took to christian erickson obvious creativity. Oh that's enormous salary. I would assume they would have to shift somebody. There's been links sending this the other way. I i don't see why would need about. It is when you've got other people who play that position like the bras. Finally i was wondering is the great yulia and drexler experiment. That's done. He has made. The grade tried to set him hard in the summer. You can't sell them because he makes too much money. They don't try again because he's got six months left on his contract so they the hoping that maybe someone will take him for a little fee in january but at least you save the. He's he's wages. Presumably makes less money than eric's and even though he's under enormous money. That might actually be something that might make a tiny bit of sense for into you listening antonio no no no drugs. Drugs never played the premier league. And he's not in his thirties. So oh yeh the season well. That's the problem. Hey very idrissa. Gay as paid in the premier league. Maybe yeah inter don't need and yet centimeters. Let's go back to persia your second. What is the. What's the general sense. Because inevitably i'm we'll we'll get into messy more Later and quick hits but inevitably when when the issue came up of messy not staying at barcelona. Everybody said oh surely. It's manchester city urinate with pat. Boy it's passenger man reunite with name out now do agree. The only way this happens is if bob goes for neymar leafs eye tenable biopic neymar and messy. They can't afford this said they're going to try and they said they're gonna work out. Try to work. If possible found away obviously missing would come on free but if he if he's on his days in a boston owner which is almost fifty million a year is i cannot see how exposed user net yet numbers by the way so for those keeping track at home. It would cost them. If he's going to be on the same money it would cost them close to a hundred million the also because the french taxman is pretty nasty. Right it is. You can find as little loopholes down there but still you won't wouldn't save them that much money anyway. On such a big contract on last shift neymar for imbaba. Bet but no one today can afford either of them. Not even remedied. I'm sorry remedy. Have the money today. i think too. I can buy in the summer and pay the wages that he would want to be paid after such a big move. I i'm not sure remedied to have that money right so we'd be talking messy taking a pay cut so he's either baker but it has to be an enormous breaker. Yeah because the priority. And that's what he's saying is to extend them on. And bobby's contract with finishing what i love these narratives so we overlook put your tinos there. So he's going to want to be there because he wants to be with patino. And i'm thinking myself. Yeah okay. so they're both from argentina right now which to the side but we go there and start drinking mountain. Listen to columbia with with with coach. Surely there's got to be more come on. You know if if you miss it. Okay this is the the two options that we man city and at least if have managed speaks your language who you know who averages pep speak about. I mean if you've been to hold for example you could have been all to hall like. How do you communicate with them. This is not the culture. It's not the symbolic renew towards at least if this is someone who is like messy. I value this is really about mris for future. He spent twenty years the same club. Nowhere in the world is going to find the same culture. He's going to have to adjust ohio. Pep would head for sure but deep inside missy wants to stay in barcelona on the show last night on the tv show for me. I've got no doubt that conditions are that he would stay however if there's little chance that he could go and that james could be in paris having puch there is a big asset than having to hold an east german technical stuff with him. Nobody's true let than technical after the word german. it has certain connotations coke naturally coaching. I i take your point last. A what sort of length size a contract are we talking about. Is that half to the seven year contract so you know i thought i thought you'd be happy not on par ju twenty on track somewhere. David moyes united states exam had didn't say like the ten year rolling contract but then like you could give one week's notice what i'm i'm excited. The first game is jaundice. Six then. John d. thirteen. You've got french community shield. That could not be played in the summer against marseille. Straight in poach we'll have the the big darby and the rivalry and everything and then buster at the end of february and the mid february in the champions league last sixteen first-leg super exciting. I know i know that ruined almost two. Who's christmas. Which is pretty grinch grinch. Like however i think you love people excited in paris i can think thomas i like you released as you know you got one seven and a half million reasons to be all right. Enough and sponsored by uber eats. How about some quick hits as good gob leicester city and manchester united battle to draw jeweled or the benefit of captain. Hindsight we know that a win for either could have left them second right now two or three points respectively off the top. Who is the bigger regret in. This game has to be for united because volley scored late to appoint for for less to all. The draw was a fair resort. i think again. This is a united side that works because of bruno fernandez. This this is this is. This is not a team. This is not a collective unit. Don knows exactly what you have to do in your system in your tactics identity. It's just rely a lot on him. And a bit of marcus rush for who. How hard 'cause well. Every time. I wash them this philippine It could be so much better. But at least they're up there and not built content rauscher's finishing is going to be like this all the time but instead he's ever turn who are second after bidding chef united one nil. Thanks to give and gamut. He's doing it without allen without hammers without dean without richardson. Can they stay there. You're asking kidney. Say second at the end of the year No i really generally don't however this is pretty remarkable. This is the run where they were supposed to be dropping points and falling behind. United's no no not sha the united states but the run running games that they've had before this and yet they're right up there. I think it tells you when you only beat. Sheffield united neil. Chris wilder. It tells you you're not at your best but you know he's using the whole squad anthony gordon. He's gone with would afford it right back centre back so you know it's rolling along the and everybody's fitting in liverpool stay. I better help. West brom jewels said the opposition played a four six zero formation but also that they deserved their point is this an example of big sam. Allardyce holiday magic. I'm not sure because banished the same man city a week ago so it was very pillaged. Got big results against big teams to yes so he started just some thing. I looked at times. It was more of a five five zero to me. The four zero. It worked there. Were good after the hour. Mark when my tip came off the had a couple of google attacks and then call the end goal. Other neurologists felt you know are often like liverpool. The place you know what. Let's just controlled that one in any way so dangerous chance at the end of course johnson city as well aggressive at the end. This is a game for chocolate continent. This is a game where he was signed for. And this is a game where the where the where. They certainly miss him. Miss you give a rare long interview to spanish. Tv channel sexto last night on sunday night. As we always off contract in june there's plenty of speculations you could go to city and rejoin pep through another possibility there and this is. This is interesting because obviously he. He's been linked to cities lincoln processor. Man the interviewer thing. He was being clever by doing exactly what i would do. So i have a guy mattress another paris guidebook by the way I guess the interview. It was a visitor from the nineteen eighties today. I think most people have guide apps on their phone the actual physical books but anyway and he was prompting him towards city of or price. Is your man and out of the blue he says. Well you know at some point you know i. I'd like to live and play in the united states so all of a sudden boom boom. Bam alaska ching shortly. You hear that this morning. I'm really hoping that right now. The only zoom conference core you know. Mls commissioner or the franchisees. Everybody said hey who can afford him. Who can bring in nothing like this. By the way to set the conspiracy theories afloat. And they're saying. Oh yeah. Look go to manchester. City was pat and then maybe manchester city and manchester city said pep and messy together to nyc. All mike god. That'd be pretty cool others. Oh look he owns an apartment in miami. Maybe it's at david beckham. Yeah but we both think he's going to stay in Barcelona with a new president and a new manager next year right. I as much. As i would love him in paris just deeply and he said in the interview he said even if he leaves he wants to come back and live in passer as his club and afford the conditions are there but it depends on what you're right is who's going to be the next president and what what he's team would be around him. I think he would want to stay now. Also said that it was crazy that barcelona should not only let's suarez go for free to a direct rival madrid but also pay him to go away. Do you agree that it was crazy. We said from the beginning dot. It was absolutely mental and a disgrace the way they treated we but tomato royal. Kumon that thirty second phone. Call the the way of the. We're bottom everybody at the club. So of kicked him out of the. He's been so good even if he was owed and i was the first one to criticize him in the two. Two two seasons is on one. Knee is overweight. But you can't treat people the boring man with the accountant with the balance sheet and the piano. They had to get rid of him because they simply couldn't afford to keep him however there is a way to do pick and also there's an intelligent way because you know what they may tell us otherwise they were set up for him to join you this right. That was all setup. And then you went to sunwest western mckinney and they take up the spa luis suarez. Maybe doesn't realize the seriousness of the situation. He doesn't get his european union passport while he's still in spain italy and then now there's an investigation because he faked the whole the whole thing stage. There's there's a criminal investigation. Tested show is an absolute mass. And that is i. Think what you blame for or the whole bushell ship team. More than the fact that let luis suarez go speaking of messy pele's old club. Santos have disputed the fight. He broke the record of most goals for single member. There's six four three in the lengthy statement sent us argue. The actually scored one thousand nine hundred one goals purely an only for for santos not six four. Three god does work differently in brazil. First i mean first of all this is a stupid off brand record which is completely meaningless and by the way in the interest of safety and not saying this to belittle messy because he's one of the greatest ever say the same thing about kustow knows record that he's going to go and be be conned or whoever's record he's beating on his way to the game has changed their different areas. He's a different situations. What scientists are arguing. I never is a tiny bit of mary in this. They they got through the one thousand nine hundred one total because saying they're counting friendly matches but they're not counting friendly matches against third division teams because they say that back then they had a long offseason teams fewer games until the organiz more friendlies. And look you know. He scored against boca juniors and inter milan in all these big teams and so they should count those goals to. I don't know. Then how. Come back and i'll come macy's goals in friendly matches count mris goals in the icu sea or maybe how about. We don't count all this stuff because you're stupid z records. They need anything. Extend impressive score six four three or six four four for the club is just mental and even more impressive thousand ninety one. Despite losing kyle walker and gabrielle's zoos to positive covid tests manchester city beat newcastle united and pep is very pleased with the performance. Jewels are us. Please this you know. He said it was the best performance of this. What's what game. Maybe we didn't want to send me. Hey listen there's more solid. He's happy with that. They should have scored more goals. That didn't it was still not great to ward off to be honest. If he's happy what does it say about comes without aguero yes yes superb and dumbbell go in the first minute gift. Nearly lead verandah rampton on sunday finishes one one inches. Jersey is grumpy citing lack of ambition. Not taking responsibility of course has always kind of generally try to do with the manager tells them to do. Look it's easy to say. They scored early plan to hit on the break. And that was the right game. It was the right game plan but the problem is when you play that way you need people who are sharp and good on the break and on and kane were poor hundred games already. This season this mental. Why did he play them in the european league. That is a very very valid question. I'm that's where he said. Some up this game. At the beginning. I thought it was good with regular lawn. Davies and the balance on target new twenty. First minute what does. That's the problem goes out of contract in june and won't be getting a new one at atlantic is the answer for somebody out there or is he china-bound or maybe guy look after giga costume. Who advises him. Maybe couple of kinds of club in north london. Man who's who's the oh. Yeah yeah it's not coming arsenal. No nah i don't think so. Thirty two mix it us aggression in half if he's fit but he hasn't been the wolves. Crossover kids your option. George mendez can money to young silva's. Well you know giving a bit more hunger and minded shop or humanities engine amazing. Let's see let's see. I think you can do a good job. Somewhere in europe doesn't have to go to china to the to the gulf then semi qadeer on os in both john's marino's round madrid. Six years ago they wanna walk up together for germany in two thousand fourteen. Now they are prisoners. Can't believe you put prisoners tied up. Let's put it that way to massive expiring contract clubs. Don't want them to have anything left to give some west to someone cups you don't want them and don't play them the reason why they also hasn't played since march kadeer hasn't played since june. Now the there's there's a need symmetry right here. You've got two german guys who were so successful played for the biggest clubs in the world one world cup. They were good. They were good signed enormous contract. I now they're clubs. You want you anymore blah blah blah and. Maybe they're saying no. No i wanna. I wanna hang onto my conga sammy. Qadeer could've left summer summer. They didn't did that was choice. Just an ironic portrait of modern football and the pitfalls involved in this. That's all it is. I hope to contributes to. The daily telegraph is reporting phil. Soden is frustrated with his lack of playing time at manchester city. Though we get a whole min against newcastle and boxing to be patient or seek a move. Who what twenty year old play regularly in one of the top trips in europe semi booth east twenty. So he's not even twenty twenty fit for the started. Five of six. Visiting much is so far. He started five ten in the premier league. Maybe prominent he wants to play more. become on. take your time. You only twenty eight. You'll tom would come milano. I in syria. I can glue digital aroma and zlatan ibrahimovic all of contracting june gaba shoe in charge of the club. What do you prioritize sized. Usually donna rumor and you sacrifice the other two if you d to he is the keno kingdom kimmel. Marcel deal with life. She expires in twenty twenty. Two and contract talks have stalled now. He's been linked with a move to spurs. Does that make sense to you. Jews maybe another club in north london. They should be taking a look at their reason another club. I think awesome are very keen as well. I think there's a few english clubs will he's he will be perfect for the premier league the way he plays twenty six hundred twenty six degrees age all the energy. I think he needs to work a bit. I mean the the expenses tactically. He's had a great manager for many few more than one even so i think he's ready. He's just ready. Maybe you need a bit of time. I was going to say to adopt. But i'm not even sure in his great signing you potentially quite cheap as well for for the kind of play that you get brennan. Who would you from from his personal development perspective. Would you advise spurs marino or arsenal and arteta. What's a better fit for him. Because he boy also even the boss icon. No one can take place without him yesterday. What happened disguise marino player. That's what i was gonna say. I see see what you mean. I see a sui mean notice how we avoid the question right. I was thinking. I'll tell you. Says he wants another striker to challenge for the title reports linking inter to both listen to this depot kariya ange jiffy. New your got. I mean i'm giving if this on one of them too. i'm giving it. I'm giving up into syria. Italian football everything inter have reached the stage now as far as we know the report is developed has been offered to enter and but the issue with inter now is people know the types of players signed so they offer you people. people look at wgnradio lok primarily. It's not quite thirty yet. So that that's a bad thing but on the upside. Look he comes from a big primarily team presumably. He's on decent wages And knowing the picking low in the pecking order hasn't played much scored some important goals on television. Oh yeah insurance on your company. I cannot believe there was vino. Vino who someone is what we did. It is not just to plastic and sign january. The worst thing is you've no deal talked about this morning so to make this deal happen reminder looking for somebody who can be an alternative to remember mkaku right yeah so of course you're venial lukaku pretty much identical the to get your vino thing. Oh yeah maybe we can send them peanut monte. The other way me not be superstar okay. He's not making everyone but he's homegrown twenty one years old. He's big and tall and strong is under twenty one international. Why don't you let this find out you're not. You're not playing european football. You're playing once a week. The rest of the season right so why. why why. why mission around those those. I'm hoping because i always have faith. I'm hoping that this is simply misdirection from inter. Let's look at the guy we really want. Somebody really good and young and cheap and we'll get the mistake all the guys you don't want we can send them the other way. It'll be brilliant. Exactly let's see it's party. Time for the injured named mighty in brazil. Local media hammered him for supposedly arranging a five day extravaganza for five hundred of his closest friends. And this is all in the midst of a pandemic that has claimed nearly two hundred thousand lives in brazil. Are you buying this users. That's a bit over the top. So he's kept saying that is not that big. It's not as big as has been reported that he's just a news eve party not over five days in five different evenings funded from parties. Not so many people that it would be very careful and all that kind of stuff socially we're playing it down but in in brazil you have no restrictions on how many people you can hang out with in those those that's also what they're saying but it's not very not the best of luck is not and also i was.

Chelsea Take Care of Business v. Brighton, Liverpool Next

"T C be taking care of business at the AMEX. You saw Chelsea perform in a way and get a result in this last match that you didn't really see last here, and there is where the excitement lies folks Chris Winning in the neutral observer and I will cover this match in preview a monster monster match week two matchup against Liverpool. Still early for that, my body is not ready Mama's Swag. Taste. Pain Tom Opening match victory four Chelsea without Christian. Pulisic with cavs acclimating to the premier league with no Akeem Zia with not Yoga Silva with no Ben Chill. Well, Chelsea find a way to give you a Ho hum two-goal victory on the Road Chris. Wittingham I can tell you with certainty that Chelsea don't win that game last year team Oh verner already paying dividends. I think making things happened with his speed and wait. Till Chelsea learn how to play with said speed. I think what we saw against. Brighton Chris was a much higher ceiling than even I was anticipating because team Oh is going to be a problem Chris and I totally agree with your assessment that it really begins sort of now that development process with his teammates and him because there was a couple of moments where if you play the ball out into space, there's we're. Played a decent through-ball but if you really hit it with some pace and allow Vernon running behind, then he's really in and let's also consider team earners said after the match that after he got into that collision with Matt. Ryan. For the penalty the he wasn't the same after that he took a knee to a muscle that didn't allow him to really explode like we know that he can. So let's understand that Chelsea. Have really been together. Ernest for four days they have not had any preseason. They have not had any ability to get ready. As you said, the whole home victory comes from individual moments within the game I comes off a mistake. The second goal just comes from a moment from James if we kind of had been expecting at some point to come from him just because he's tried those shots from outside the area and finally. Came off and the third was really something. You didn't have a lot of last year luck. You didn't have a lot of luck when you need a goal to put the game away ball comes off occurred Zuma wasn't a great strike takes it affliction and you get lucky and win the game. Maybe it's because I'm a hockey fan because in that sport it really you don't really hear it in soccer coverage all that much. Just put it on the frame and see something maybe something happens. Maybe someone puts his stick to it. Maybe it deflects off at something good things happen when you put shots on target when you force the issue and that's what happens with that. Zuma goal. Let's since you mentioned Tim O. Verner talking about the injury I know the sound was out there and I think collectively Chelsea twitter fell in love with his player has. Started to circulate. Let's get an update in team ozone words on injury was from the penalty. The knee of the Goeke hit me directly into the muscle. And it goes very hard and the rest of the game hurts a lot. I can't do some movements because the muscle goes very hot but at the end I'm happy that we win I don't care about this. Week it's good. So no, we did a good game today. Do it well and? I'm happy that get the penalty because I think it was really important for game. He's adorable. Chris. Storable. Told this. This was a sensitive creature. He didn't tell me exactly how fast Turbo Team Oh was this guy I don't sound ridiculous Chris I don't sound that ridiculous insane. He's is a nice little long-shot because it's his first year in this new league to win the Golden Boot. You see how many chances there are there. He had a better debut than key habits habits exactly playing where we thought he might but I guess the good thing is versatile. I thought his best moment was actually tracking all the way back down the pitch to make up for the time that he was. Dispossessed, this is why you gotta listen to these interviews here on Chelsea Mike because Derek rate was telling us that Guy Habits favors the left and I think as he's working through receiving the ball from some of his fellow Chelsea players he was trying to turn back inside set up the left got dispossessed and head to regain his balance and track all the way back. I thought that was good leading by example showing that you're there to clean up your mistakes obviously, you have to give the the player the benefit of the doubt in this acclimation period Chris and the other thing. That he said to was, there is jump between the Bundesliga in the primarily. Again, I was concerned that he gave voice to that but I do find it interesting that he did notice realize I've got to speed up my quickness of thought team over and also gave voice to that. There's a lot of tall defenders in the premier league. The physicality is just simply a step up in this division you play against Sheffield United. When you play against wolves, these are the kind of teams that just are big and bruising indefens-. Opponents are GONNA get used to it I did find the. Positional aspect of a really interesting because Lampard said, after the game we've got three, four, five guys we can play in that number ten role that is where the competition is going to be I find really interesting that he gave Ruben Loftus cheek his chance in the first game at similar to post restart. Well, Shock Star for Ruben off this week I think that Lampard really wants to make this happen room off the street give him a chance after the Achilles injury and really for the first time and it's all. Chelsea. Career. Deva consistent run of games playing with Chelsea. I just think. Derek toilets. That's his best position. I WANNA see him in that area more than I want to see him in White, right I really wish we were at cobb him last week in seeing the buildup and not just in the new players being integrated into Franklin parts tactics. But I'm really curious to see what Ruben Loftus Cheek is showing and training because he has earned some of these. Surprise starts and in watching game, I think you and I we watched it together. We both came away with the same opinion. I think Reuben needs it's sort of retrain his body. His body may not be doing the same things that it did pre Achilles injury and it looks as though from the Times he's been dispossessed and there were a few of those times against Brighton he's trying. To do things at his head, nosy can do but his body I think is rejecting it at the moment and we see this in the NBA with that injury because it's more common in that sport players have to sort of reinvent themselves. Ruben has strong. He has the frame. This is a guy that really got by on craftiness and strength. He had a nice bit of Pace I. Don't really think that the straight line speed is that affected by this injury, but it's a little quick movements craftiness and it's actually the strength to because that takes a quick activation of muscle that may not be fully there yet. I wonder if he's showing something in practice and maybe when it gets to the Games, it's not exactly translating I'm really curious and I, hope the best for. Him I think Reuben needs a lot of playing time and I don't know if it's going to be there for him on this team considering the signings I think Reuben needs to retrain himself. That might be a hyperbolic knee-jerk reaction. Again, this has been a lot of time off that injury just yet we're just getting going and he himself was learning new teammates so may be a bit. Unfair but I don't know if his body is quite there yet Chris I agree and look the Achilles injury is a really tough one. But I also think we hear all the time the phrase match fitness right? There is no substitute for playing games never mind that Chelsea only played one game in the build up to this season after their abbreviated off season I think this preparation has. Completely thrown off. So many teams not just Chelsea and I think, for example, Chelsea going on a run in the Cariboo Cup could be really important for them because after the play Liverpool the of a quick turnaround in a We Care About Cup fixture against Barnsley end they will have an opportunity to rotate ten guys and get an entirely new wave of players into the squad into the Team some of them young some of them those guys desperate for playing time. I. Don't know if Loftus Cheek is going to feature in a game against Liverpool but I definitely think he'll start one of the next two games. So I do think a run of matches really important for Ruben to maybe he doesn't necessarily feel that ability to do the same things he could before now but maybe. After playing ten games he will and you'll recognize the same Ruben Chic. But for the moment I think he struggled with giving the ball away and even that Molin, for example, right before the end of the first half when team verners running behind the defender, you got a two on one. He plays the ball a bit late and it's not the right ball. Those are the kind of. Moments where I think fully matched sharp Ruben Cheek will be able to execute with ease. Let's talk about our man of the match and we were getting pretty close to the time where we had to do this because otherwise, we would have sounded crazy here on Chelsea Mike saying this was coming, but you can see him hunting for it trying to be a little bit more aggressive in. Going for gold, we know in that boot, there is magic from Reese James. We saw a goal that you look you can't count on that goal all the time that is a special moment, and it's already a goal the year contender from reese. James and hopefully, there is stiff competition from his own teammates in that regard but this player in the attack is special special and there was Another special player at that same position, a former Chelsea player and Tariq Lamti who made it appearance in a memorable personal match from last year Lam ass for transfer. Why? Because of what you saw from Reese James he realized there wasn't a True Path to first team minutes as long as reese James lived and breathed and a special player. This is quite the weapon if he can improve. In, the offensive aspects of that came and maybe he doesn't if he can give you what he gives you in the attack with a little bit more consistency man do Chelsea had a very special weaponry shames and match experience is going to allow him to grow in that defensive area playing in a back line with Tiago Silva will help him grow and develop and if he can give. You goals on top of that maybe even he ends up in trial Arnold, territories taking free kicks from that kind of range because he's such a good striker of a ball, he's always going to get you good crosses down that right hand side and good service. But I think one of the things that we look towards last season is those individual moments of quality that got victories it. Just didn't seem like Chelsea had those in them and I think in this game getting one from Reese James is a sign that maybe you will see more of those and weeks to come and say, all right. This doesn't look Great Brighton of equalize. We need a moment and reach James gave you a moment and already has given you a goal this season candidate and Chris more excited. About what I didn't see in that match. Then when I saw this is why the whole three one victory at Brighton has me so happy because I know in my mind what Chelsea's first team should look like at least what the experts think you mean it tell me Chelsea you're going to be going up matches where it's re shames lining up on the same side as a team. And then the pace and skill on the other wing with Pulisic and Ben Chill well, just speed for days on that side with good service with people knowing exactly where they need to be in the box with the likes of team over and key habits poaching some goals you gotta get some easier sitters here than you got last year remember all the tough Chelsea losses in which you just couldn't create anything in the attack I. Don't think we're going to have that problem this year at least I hope not granted I haven't seen the fully fit team Jesse yet, but you just have too much talent ten, not be a top four. Team I. DON'T THINK WE'RE GONNA. If we're in a top four battle, it's because everybody else is that much better in the primarily because I think it is obvious from the jump even without their full squad that Chelsea have made a leap year over year and that's why people get excited about transfer windows and that's why I'm you can get on managers like Pep Guardiola and Josie. Marino for all they can only sign. They can only win with spending big money and and you know you're KLOPP having a go at Chelsea for the money that they've spent. But Look Liverpool Mead Saudi-omani Roberto from you know Mohammed Saleh Virgil Van Dyke Allison and Andrew, Robertson China Alexander Arnold they found but they spent a lot of money on fabio invite now them in Keta all these guys in midfield you need top top level players and it sounds it sounds ridiculous. But that's why look I think some Chelsea fans lamenting that Willian left in this window and he played really well personally got three hundred S. I mean, you got three assists in his first game fantasy premier league owners were delighted but I think it's a little bit past the stage where you can say that Willie and his a top top top player and I do things and James Combine the on that side gives you a little bit more threat in that. If you're back which are you more concerned with you don't know and I and I do think there was a moment we're willion as predictable but I think there were moments a be easy to defend and I think you get a bit more dynamism by having the team as opposed to really end. So I just think that Chelsea needed. To go and sign dynamism top level players, threats that you're afraid with veered opposition defense and I just don't think when you look back on last season, they had enough of bring it back to a larger conversation about Christian Pulisic we have really cool sound from our manager. Liverpool's manager on Christian Pulisic near new number ten. But when I think back to post restart Chelsea weren't really team that beat you a lot of ways you need the ball pula six feet or giroud making something happen. You only could be teams a certain kind of way last year and the defense was an often there. You couldn't really count on that Chelsea have so many players capable of. Brilliance who cares of reasons not gonNA give you that game in and game out you really just need him to give it to you every seven matches you need verner to give it to you every three matches habits and give it to you every four matches you see what I'm saying they have these world class players that are capable of so many. More individual moments of brilliance when you look at it year over year and I know this isn't a quantifiable statistic but I think this year's individual moments of brilliance. If we're looking at it at a pie chart is going to dominate when compared to last year's individual moments of brilliance. So you you mentioned politic in the build up to that Frank Lampard when. Talking about his end of season with our white NBC's inside the mind we talking about how Christian Pulisic if he doesn't injure his hamstring in the run-up to that moment against arsenal that he thinks he would have scored and Chelsea would have won the FA Cup final and then he mentioned that just goes to show how much we needed Pulisic. Towards. The End. Of the run into the season, we needed him to create brilliant for us and he did it so many times but that I think underscores just how much more threat Chelsea needed, which is why they spent a bunch of money in the attack in the window right people you gave up fifty goals you need defense. Well, they still needed those moments of individual. Brilliance to come in the form of new players and I think they've done it and then to me Seh Monday was the starting point on what the team concept is going to be because we know that the passing combinations, the movements of maintaining a possession there were good at those things last year, they're going to get much better at this year but they. Haven't any time together I haven't had any time to train any games together. We know that in November, the team concept will create goals along with the individual moments of brilliance that we saw on Monday. Let's talk about the one hiccup in this performance the goalkeeper now obviously credible journalists have already reported that Chelsea are in on Mendy but time of recording. No. Official statement or announcement from the club. So we're not going to too much on that. Let's just look at Kepler's performance. He should have had that he should have had that Chris thankfully. Tim Howard is now a part of NBC sports network soccer coverage and it's really cool to your goalkeepers perspective on this I don't even know what is happening there. That's not A thing it was well within his reach. He just mistimed exactly how far he was jumping this out that he got his hands to it. How does that took underneath those risk? The kindest interpretation of it is that it takes a balancing, expecting it to go up a bit higher off the ground and his arm isn't low enough to get underneath it but. It is absolutely a goal where you go back and watch and go. You should save that and I think a lot of goalkeepers. The primarily would save that and that's why look Frank. Lampard said all the right things after the game he suma keeper I still trust him and I think Lampard has done a fairly remarkable job backing him when I think other managers Josie Marino would probably have a go at him and say I need another keeper we need another player he'd like throw him under the Rug of Frank Lampard has done everything you want if you're the player in that spot to be like I, feel like my manager is trying to stay behind me kept just makes those kinds of mistakes and I as much as the manager is talking about you know backing him I think he he would expect more from Kappa in that spot, and the hope is that in the very near term in the next game against Liverpool at the next big chance he saves but for the moment that was a. Chance and Kep could have done better with it appears as though Chelsea, you're gonna be bringing in competition as a manager says, and sometimes competition will make you better and sometimes that competition is better. So we'll see what happens with kappa and the goalkeeper position for Chelsea F. C. really excited to have our necks gas on. He's about to join us.

Number One. Thank you for your support and welcome aboard. Thank you so much for having me. Congratulations on the second series and I have to be listening more intently now following. Introduction I'm humbled. Thank you. Oh, and maybe listening intently because of that intro or because you're like me, you just love the sound of your own voice. Let's get into it. We're in the media. Let's talk. Let's go parker voice that we've heard Stamford Bridge. Lee obviously you were closely with the club you get these tremendous interviews, unparalleled access and you build up good relationships with the managers and you've been there for a couple now and that's really sticking out even though the fiery passion of Josie Marino and Tonio Kante, are great for fans watching at home for access admittedly, it would seem like they'd be a little bit more. To deal with. So what is it like dealing with? Frank Lampard now, WHO's had media training? Has Been on the opposite side of it. It seems as though from the manager, there is a conscious effort on his part to sort of maybe repair relationships that maybe more abrasive to put a kindly managers might have fractured a bit. What I mean he's a great guy is not. So good. On Camera. But the guy you see on cameras, the guy we see off camera as well. He's very honest. He's very objective. You use the web passionate as well. He's very, very passionate. He's a Chelsea guy he came through the system there when he's the he came through a young player and got used to sort of Chelsea having their own TV channel and the Homeo- that came with it. So it was kind of a a stark realization I guess for him to then all of a sudden deal with the spotlight that that that brings about but that group applies are also good and they the the so good when it comes to speaking to the media we. Jones Harry Drogba Frank Lampard Actually Call Michael Ballot Joke Oh my goodness. I'm going to miss somebody pats check that there's so many of them that you can throw any question and they are just fantastic at taking it on the Chin and giving you an honest objective answer and you get that with Frank Warren hours as a coach and there's no sugar coating anything they will say it as it is. He's great and I love that I think we ve very privileged to be. In the position that we're in with certainly, very privileged to have him as his manager as well because you can go up and you can just have a unopened conversation with him whether it's on text on whatsapp face to face at the training ground at a guy he's great is he has very much an open door policy without sounding cliche. So people can come and talk to him, and that goes for people behind the scenes as well as the playing and coaching staff he's. Gets it, and he's great knowing who does what job around the training ground he knows names faces a nice sound but it's important people respect that he treats people how he would like to be treated given your access and watching. Chelsea you also have to remind yourself constantly these are young men I don't speak the way that I spoke when I was eighteen nineteen years old. You see the growth and development of not just players on the field but off the field growing in confidence, getting more repetitions and speaking with the media and it was kind of cool seeing with Christian, we had the opportunity to interview him several times and I sorta noticed towards the tail end the confidence on the field was also projecting itself in some interviews and he's getting a little bit more used to it. You've built up these relationships with these players. It's a lot of them when it comes to the media obligations when football is supposed to be their life, how much? How rigorous is just being a? Professional for a nineteen year old man very good question. I think some of them find it more comfortable than others I don't think I'm talking about when when I say that but I think a lot of credit especially with the younger players like you mentioned there certainly the ones that come through the academy a lot of credit asked to go to new off Jim Fraser in the guise behind the scenes at the academy because not only do they put the work in on the pitch, they put the work in the extracurricular stuff as well. So they have bespoke media training for these kids they have a lot of. Things that you wouldn't. You wouldn't think about how to deal with with money and and problems that they'll. They'll do with with the press and all these things that go into being a top player top professional when they make the mooted move across the road to the first team building it's already there you speak to Ruben off the cheek Cam Hudson Door Mason Mount people this they just click and they get it straight to y so full credit to them and four credits the training that's given to them behind the scenes and I think from an in house TV channel I often say to some of these boys signing the first pro contracts and further down the line. Utilize us. Yes. It's great because we are going to get great access content that sounds a little cynical. Of course bar I think we have a duty of care towards these boys as well because. If, they can't trust us who can they trust? You know I want them to be able to sit down and do an interview with US knowing full well, we're not going to throw them under the bus if they say something that maybe isn't quite right than we should be the ones say, Hey, you know what? We're not gonNA use this answer and give them a reason why and help them with. Training and the understanding, and this I think it's also the case with some of the boys that have come to the club quite young at NASA odd. When he first came to Chelsea twenty one years old didn't speak a word of English. So we are very privileged position where we got to sit down with him to do his first interviews in English, and then we can then give him honest objective feedback and if there's things he wants to run US great when I have a steady his first interview last week after the event, his agent turned to me and he says well done that's his first interview in English. While you know incredible that he just absolutely nails it and I think that's something that we especially in England tight hugely for granted because there's there's that whole language thing that we just. Don't speak English well, and I own a Minority languages called English. So yeah. Yes And that was actually going to be my next question as it relates adverts end team. Oh, verner. Both. Give interviews in English both to yourself and now to a couple of media outlets as well. What impresses you about them both in terms of that ability to come to a new country never having player before and speak the language but in other aspects, what were your impressions having spoken to them both really good I think. Okay she would expect me to say that both and I think is true because we Then, a couple of weeks after Tim O. as you said we've been chewing after that. Last week and I'm constantly amazed just how well they pick it up. And there's no, there's no what you're GonNa ask me what questions are. They just go go. And then just. Amazing, but also as well as just wide thing I think from a cup perspective when it comes to recruiting these young men, they put a lot of work in a lot of work in behind the scenes to yes. Identify the player but the right personality as well. I remember talking to Peta check moments after we did that first team over and our interview. Yeah it's lovely guy great family well educated Carrozza himself well, and so they know all this advanced they put in that legwork they know the people they're going to be bringing in nothing that's crucial without the benefit of hardware or success to handle the media the way the Marucci oh sorry did for example, it didn't really buy him a lot of capital in. The eyes of many Chelsea supporters and you didn't really do himself any favors do you agree with that sentiment that maybe that that whole experience from how the fans are because now the fans are related because they have one of their own in Franklin part is sort of the polar opposite I. Imagine you can even speak to the access that he gives you. it seems like he's he's doing something that may be Chelsea managers in years past wouldn't exactly go as far to do did that sort of around marine patio just sort of seemed like there was all this outside pressure because there was this a contentious relationship with the media how far does affability go and just getting your message in buying US Some Job Security I think from in the eyes of angry tweets. Severi. Good question of think. So much has changed hasn't it with the onset of social media and people want not just results but they want access I want everything immediately, and that's kind of the the world we live in on I. Guess from that Perspective football becomes almost like a microcosm of that doesn't. So there is this immediate pressure for people to be able to perform in the media rightly or wrongly and and some as. Everybody I think is that some find it more natural than others? You know it's It's hard to put your finger on and Zip, but I remember speaking to Mitzi off camera is lovely guy really you know we would have conversations about everything I'm growing up in Italy his time working in banking when he was in England in. January, good guy and you know. You can't say anything other than that. But the sort of media perception can sometimes build them, build them bill context but to come back to the the the present day I think the fact that Frankie's so good when it comes to dealing with the media and he doesn't he doesn't shy away from anything. So if there's a difficult question in the press conference. nonce or not. Thank you. Fair enough the battery back and return it with another question or you'll give his honest objective answer which I think is fantastic being manager. You're sort of CEO of a fortune five, hundred company frank gives off that leadership in ways granted doesn't have the the language barrier, but he also has the power of knowing his Frank Lampard and a lot of these players grew up watching him and idealize him how much are around the training ground in around Stamford Bridge, where players are going to their manager for advice and this. Manager just so happens to be one of the greatest midfielders of all time and does bring being a product of this system coming to Chelsea and becoming a professional and world famous soccer player does he know the power of that and not only does he want to connect with players on tactical level a player to coach relationship but also like I'm here to help you as a man, are you seeing Frank Lampard? Absolutely, not just with frank but also with the backroom staff as well one of the most I think. One of the funniest things and one of the most interesting things to watch in previous is with the development in the under eighteen was what she just how competitive and just involve joab woods and Jody Morris would be and frank is very much the embodiment of that as well. He Will Not WanNa plan to do something he's not willing to do himself. He will get fully involved in a love. The fact that Jodi and Joe used to do we go and film training would like last year would gone from the development training and Joe would see dangling right what says he will me for but. I right which is and it'd be paying involves against the crossbar from half Whelan's my goodness highlight reel where Jodi exactly the same would get involved is so competitive and that's now elevated even more now that there were the first team squad Franks the same I remember the first couple of weeks he'd take a couple of the players after the free kick practice. Tammy Mason and a couple of others Frank Zappa aboard an opinion in the top corner and so from Mesa mounts perspective is. Great the gaffer's just on that. So I've to step up and that is brilliant to watch and you see there that that chemistry straight why it's fantastic and so these let you righty said, these young boys that have watched frank growing up. And now, go right if I can't learn from Him who am I gonNA learn from Billy Gilmour case in point Billy Gilman was born two days before maybe three days before Frank Lampard signed for Chelsea as a player. So his entire life Franks been playing at the highest level is insane. But. Now he's not my goodness and and all that you alluded to some of the new players speaking to team oh to Hakim. How big a role did Frank Lampard having you come in here massive massive the main reason he's the guy and straight away it's a frank pa of that. He's part of the initial conversation this why won't you hear these the tactical reasons I want you here this is what we're building here and straightaway that buying from Peta check out my goodness these are two of the best players. Generation one everything. Won't be at. Their club? Li I want to ask you about your perspective in watching Christian. Pulisic last year because look he's an American footballer and there's always a bit of skepticism their the English game and an American comes in here and we we kind of felt it and I, think Christian knows that he has to fight against and it was really cool to see even though he hates the nickname of Captain America doesn't like it but we're just gonNA go with it. It was really cool to see that fan base. Embrace him because of what he did on the pitch, you're not going to ignore me anymore has this been a in in American sports every every now, and then there's a player that just captivates a fan base with the Miami. Was Dontrelle Willis and Jose Fernandez people you would see quantifiable merchandise flying off the shelves Interest Social Media and direction whenever this player does something it feels exciting over here in the United States what does it feel like over there? Fantastic it's fantastic I mean we all. Want to solve a road ones back but then people right. Your wrongly was signed. Follow it. And as leaves the club alleged a fan favorite. And then all of a sudden last come in and start rights. What do you got for me and my goodness? He's just incredible but I think From from Apple Speights So from from speaking to him as much as you guys do as well. His personality we talked about personalities well, humble approachable hard-working fans love that they watch. With that's against bright and they love to see a play track back HCR's to make a defensive tackle, major their own box they watch Christian run and run run FA Cup final case in point. Okay. The fans weren't their Easter on go he feels his hamstring go gets his shot way anyway eight puts everything on the line and you can see what it means to him when he doesn't score when things do go wrong fans love them. Sure I'm not speaking about Tom but. They do they love to see players especially here in England playing with Hall on this leave that's what they love John Terry that's where the love of Frank. Lampard. People get in there and fight and fight and fight, and he's producing on the pitch. We've real quality especially sort and we heard Last week week before where you were talking about his form since lockdown arguably Chelsea's best player. Incredible. You know and it's exciting for fans to see that and they see that growth and they see a manager that has faith in him as well and to give him the now iconic number ten shop no pressure. But he just takes it on the Chin and he just got that fantastic personality in that persona was that Yep Yep I'll. I'll push on on Carolina work hard achieve more and he's he's my son's favorite player already is obsessed. My son is obsessed with them and their best friends already. which is really sweet.

Okay. It is segment three. We had a great interview with Lee Parker in the show we broke down the Brighton matches. Best is pretty much anyone. I've ever heard breakdown a match against Brighton Chris Wittingham, but the time is here. Liverpool preview time and I got level with your brother. Chris. My Body's not ready for Liverpool Chelsea this picture could've waited a little bit but here we are thrown into the deep end and questions about player availability in this match. We waited out on taping this this episode of Chelsea miked up as late as we could to see if we can get any late nuggets about Christian Pulisic availability but all there was really was this sound from Frank Lampard nothing much has changed on that front Christian Yeah Christian was trying to move this last week. He had a little bit discomfort. Companies is very strong to you know trying to, Dawson being contention Pittsburgh I would have been a big also today that's just a few steps back. So I would have to say too. So that's one. Don't have big news on a minute who say don't want to spend too much time prolific as we don't really know that he is there but this is a match against Liverpool and I was watching men in Blazers on peacock following that Brighton Match and Jurgen Klopp made me smile ear being Chelsea Fan, which is hard to do for Liverpool manager because Roger Bennett asked Jurgen klopp about Christian Pulisic performance. The last time he played Liverpool at Anfield you remember he came on as a sub completely changed the match almost single handedly made that match level and has a tremendous question of your club and I thought Chelsea fans might find this sound. Cool. So here it is courtesy of men in Blazers. Didn't stop. videogame on unbelievable the plays I knew. Sixteen very, very young and joint training on. It was like in a comic a little boy, the ball five six or players want to get it, and then in the end you see only us and one is coming out and was Christian. So I knew it will be agreeable loft work together with the Murphy state but lives all about timing. Is Really Good, club with Chelsea and is doing well, how big can he be very I don't WanNa put Brush on he's twenty one off. So very very young rose. And is really brilliant plan SUPERPAC. Really cool south. Thank you so much to our friends over at Minimum Blazers for allowing to play that for audience, Chris your takeaway on that because I know just as an American soccer passionate in American soccer fan you're not neutral about them. You're excited to hear that from European Klopp of course and to me the the amazing thing was Kinda like restraining himself from being like I don't WanNa put pressure on the kid but. My God. This guy looks like he's going to be an amazing and you know you want it to say that be kind of understands that as Liverpool manager, he can really go that far right he can't release say well, I think going to be you know one of the all time greats or whatever. But I think he kind of remembers fondly time working with Christian and saw those two moments in that game against Liverpool and was like, okay like this guy is delivering on his promise and kind of the joy. Through like you had a smile on his face talking about an opposition player like you shouldn't give opposition this much praise i. think he kind of almost take some personal pride it. What's happened with Pulisic since they work together? Yeah. It was really speaking to Parker where I really saw this through a child's eyes through Mason. Mount. Size through Billy Gilmore's is the manager is one of the more influential male role models you have in your life as an up and coming man a footballer and that was really cute two year. There's not just respect for Christian, the footballer there but a level of care and love. For that young man that he had at Dortmund and it was really cool to see. Let's get into this match because I, for one if I had to make a prediction on today even though my fantasy premier league Abbas, telling me seventy five percents chance to play. I'm not really sure if this gamesmanship from the manager Frank Lampard, we see this all the time in the NFL, this technical advantage. So we'll see if Christian is available that would certainly change how I feel about the match because he certainly one of Chelsea's best players but Timo verner says he should be ready for this match you gotta imagine. We'll be back out there kovachevich returning from suspension one would believe he is back in that starting eleven and Golo Kante shows up for these Liverpool matches excited to see out there we may see Tiago Silva he's training with the club. The quarantine has ended. There is a chance from all accounts he he's doing pretty well out there Benca will probably still a little bit away from seeing Ben Show. Chris Yeah. He's still recovering from a heel injury that he picked up in the restart period with Leicester, but I actually don't think that it necessitates much changing. I think when show is fit, he will add a ton into the squad. If I'm Markus, Lonzo struggled a bit in the game against Brighton. But we want to see is a similar performance at you don't want to five goals Liverpool again beauty wanna see that attacking that enterprise. We're going to go at Liverpool and we're going to really you know give them a game that they don't normally have in some ways to the same game that leads just gave them right because you see the vulnerabilities in that Liverpool, defense and I think if you're Chelsea you. Watch that tape and go. Well, if leads can do this, we have to go away thinking with the confidence that we scored three goals against him and couple of months ago that we can at the very least keep this game competitive through goalscoring appreciate the bind because this is as much a Liverpool Leeds. Review as it is Chelsea, Liverpool preview I didn't think that my bold prediction of Liverpool finishing third because the rest of the League has kind of figured them out would jump off the screen the way that it did in match week one now leads. May. In fact, be one of the greatest promoted sides we've ever seen or perhaps maybe there is some credence to that take and credence to what we've seen over the last few months from Liverpool and no Liverpool fans will get upset when I say you've peaked hell peak we're not that far removed. You hear the Best Club in the World Champions League won the Premier League when the club. World Cup, you guys were incredible fortunately when you reach the mountain top and when you don't have a particularly super young side, there's only one way to go Chris. I think the best days of Liverpool are behind them I don't think this is the team that Blitzer Premier League a half a year into the season well to me. The prevailing thing is that leads approach the game with no fear and arsenal, and they beat them in the community shield and when they beat them in the premier league, approach them without fear right and I think that's kind of what it has to be is that last year in the primarily you saw even though Man City are capable of ripping teams apart they lost nine games because. Their opposition didn't fear them in quite the same way they weren't you know bunkering and trying to hang on for dear life they actually had to go and we're trying to create chances and I think the same thing has to happen Liverpool and that's exactly leads to part of this because that's Marcelo Be Elsa and that's just the way that he's going to manage all thirty games that that way. You will not see leads play any different week in week out but I also thought you saw Chelsea go away to Liverpool and score goals against them you. Saw Man City beat them at home by three goals to nil. You've seen teams now that it's like, okay there is I. Don't want to say soft center but that you can get at Liverpool they've played raising with the same players in the same system for two years. At some point, you're going to be able to develop a system in a way of playing against it. I'm not quite as far as you are in terms of they peaked and they're on their way down and they're gonNA finishing third but I do think for the first time A. Team that's been so strong defensively is showing vulnerabilities at the back Virgil Van Dyke made a big mistake in this game against lead you're starting to see Allison thought to be the best keeper in the League if three shots on target, they all went in like that's not something that we've seen for them in in in years previous with Liverpool. So I do think you can get at them. You saw the likes of former Chelsea Academy Product Patrick Bamford get behind them you saw former less product Jack Harrison who's got a really cool story in his own right Maybe equally cool hair although it's it's enough with it leads I, mean not everybody needs to have it. But cool. If those players can get in from behind God. Let's play some good through Balsa Timo, verner because with his speed, he can cause problems and we saw that in the game against Brighton particularly one moment that stood out with Ross Barkley. Now historically, he's a player that likes to keep the ball at his feet, but he's got released that sooner because you can't cut off team Os Angle, you can't do that yourselves. This is a good championship quality defense despite that performance against leads you have to be able to give. T- most space because he's a guy that will sort of cheat a little bit and might be caught off side a little bit. So timing and time and training is important. I really wish this match played out a little bit later in the season because I think after a few training sessions with fitness Chelsea or already at the level to rip this result away from Liverpool, we saw them eliminate them from the FA Cup Chelsea were capable of it last year and Chelsea are only that much better with the injury to. Pulisic for me that changes how I approach this match I still think it has plenty of goals in it I think it's GonNa be exciting and an action because nothing that I saw from Chelsea or Liverpool in their match with lead me to believe anything different Chris already a nominee for match of the year the excitement is buzzing lots of people around this country are registering peacock premium because this is must see TV that last game leaves you feeling of wanting to get back to it. You also have a pretty significant. Probably, the biggest manager issues in the League when you look at Lamport in Klopp the way that they've kind of taken shots each other in press and it was just really it's interesting. Now there's a bit of kind of needle between the two teams I. Hope Given that you know Liverpool's three two of the three premier league matches or a four three and five three that we're just infra similar kind of entertainment come Sunday if Chelsea win this match though let's live in that world for a second because I want to. Then the premier league or at least the top dogs in the primarily have figured Liverpool out, and then you're GonNa have to be a wet blanket on that episode because I'm going to go and run with the title aspirations at that point. It may be ridiculous put so much stock in an early matchup. But man if Chelsea pull this off considering everything that's working against them Liverpool seem like a pretty fit squad and they have the benefit of chemistry built up over the course of several years now if Chelsea. After just being thrown together without a lot of time during the global pandemic who boy well WH- blanket analysis is that I will not be making a judgment on this sheltie team until matchday ten like I. Just I, we still need to see so much we need to see all the signings coming through. We need to see the team style of play with everyone fit we need to. See how they're gonNA handle fixture congestion but you're right. I mean if they do start with six points from six and a win against Liverpool, it's an early sign that at the very least the top of the League is open right because I can't imagine city you're going to be as ruthless as they were a couple of seasons ago and pick up one hundred points. Liverpool is really the. Only team that can make this. You know a no doubt big big lead without question title winner and if you beat them on matchday two, then it's alright. Liverpool are vulnerable everyone is vulnerable. So I absolutely think that a lot can be taken from this match I do think it's just a bit early in terms of you compare Liverpool's infrastructure you know that starting eleven picks itself whereas we're. Talking about line of sued lineup doubts injury doubts enough that I just think that Chelsea you're right. This game has just come a bit too early for them. I wouldn't overreact if they lost this game just because Liverpool in terms of where they are and their development or so much further ahead while there's still such a huge ceiling on what Chelsea have built in this transfer window. Let's turn. Our attention to the women's side because with told you in the last episode to not freak out about Sam Kerr, and then I started not following my own advice because there was a one one draw against Manchester United. But I took solace in the fact that while the top of the women superleague might be competitive. The rest of it is relatively flat track and we saw that with A. Nine nil result over Bristol City Frame Kirby scores, her goal and sixteen months and Sam Kerr gets on the scoresheet. She was a bit of a playmaker called. The see Chelsea are absolutely loaded and there isn't going to be much fight put up from some of the lower tier or even midtable teams in this League Chris Yeah I mean it's ultimately arsenal picked up another huge victory over the Weekend it's about I would say now the top four and we should also say with Alex Morgan joining Spurs I mean who knows what they're going to look like that that's only alone the end of December. So I mean we just don't know enough about that Tottenham team but yeah, I, mean you're going to have you know half the League is going to be sort of have to win. Every game because comes like arsenal and city and Manchester United are going to be winning those games. So Chelsea have to be keeping pace, but they're also at times going to set the pace as did with nine win good to get goals for new signings, Melanie new loopholes and perennial harder as well. You mentioned Sam Kerr getting the ninth and final goal on the a friend of the pod. On the scoresheet as well. Dog Sergio Ramos. reincarnated dawn. And and Chelsea are are dominant wants more and they'll have to sustain a run of this off this weekend but they'll be back in the league in a in a couple of weeks and they have to not win every game night, Neil but sustain that top level of performance in order to in this league. Let's go onto a really exciting returning segment. Thank you shoutout to Chelsea, F C in USA, the American twitter account you should follow that account they solicited questions from our audience. Our audience came through with some questions for us Chris what is in our mailbag. Let's start with at Nebraska Blues they send over seeing them mounted. Harvard's don't seem to be natural wingers and with the injuries to ballistic and. Kalomo seemed to be Chelsea's only natural winger. That's also healthy isn't reactionary to think. We should be worried about depth on the wing be worried about what's going on with callum Hudson and quite honestly because that game screamed game that he should be starting right willion off the Rosser makes his move to Arsenal. This opens up the path especially with the injuries out there for Callum Hudson Doisneau Pulisic. Nosy ash and he's not in the starting eleven Ruben Loftus is and he had the worst Achilles injury out of the two. I know that they're whispers remember this is a player that had interest from Munich over there and Chelsea signed callum talk to a lucrative contract performances haven't quite been there ironically enough. I thought he impressed most when he was showing off her by Munich that Champions League. Let's not even go there. -gratulations to them for winning callum Hudson Doi. A is a curious player because he was certainly a surprise player the Marito sorry turned to in Cup competitions I think really kept Marito. Sorry in that job long enough to win the Europa League title that he did I'm not really sure if caloms the same player he was before the injury I think that's fair as his sample is a little bit larger and more representative than Ruben. Loftus Cheek and I'm not so sure what's best for his personal career is coming off the bench I think this player like Ruben loved his cheek needs more playing time. So I'm not really sure what's going on there. And I'm also not ready to write off. Mesa amount is not a natural winger because I think what? He's a natural that is being super versatile I was not at all surprised to see him out there on the wing given the injuries that Chelsea had I think Frisco move them a lot even during matches. We saw that quite a bit already with Brighton last one in terms of questions comes from at King Marseille's is it soccer or football now I have this question included because we use all the terminology on this show, we call it both you soccer us football we use nail US zero like I'm kind of sick and I wanted to bring this up of the constant nomenclature war. You're not a fan unless you call football like we should be inclusive on language call whatever the hell you want. Yeah. Don't get on me. I'll call it a match, call it a game or call them teams, call them sides a column clubs, a comb franchises, call them GM like Sumi coma coach, and most of the time I call it the appropriate lingo most of the people that we deal with over in the UK call it that and I don't. WanNa. Lose them. I. Don't know I'm proudly American in the way that I can call it soccer, and if someone calls it football one thing that I've been calling the. NFL actually American football because I call soccer football quite often I say American football rather than just football. So that's the only change that I feel like making an in terms of the debate of what do I call the sport of soccer slash footy I, call American football American football. That's the change that I've decided to make everything else what comes out comes out yeah. I'll sometimes use by accident soccer terminology when I'm talking about like American football like we're talking about a defensive end going into right tackle. It's a one V, one situation and a friend of mine be like what's like one V one we're that like yeah. This soccer terminologies. But over I'm now just like an Amalgam of jargon that I've heard from ten different sports, it's a cool question and I get why you picked it out of the loads of questions that we got this week because I actually find myself making soccer references to American sports a lot more talk about players form in the. NBA. So I don't really Change, it I will say, though embrace your American side there's only what three nations in the world or four nations in the world that call it soccer and be proud of that I mean the men's team is coming on the women's team is one of the greatest know it is simply the greatest women's national soccer team. You've ever seen when he sat up their successes. About everybody it's a part of your heritage calling it soccer but also who cares if you call a football man as long as you're good at it and as long as you're watching I, think we're all happy. Thank you so much for listening to this week's episode of Chelsea Mike enjoyed our interview with Lee Parker go back into some of the older episodes. If, you want some more habits team, Oh verner breakdown I heavily recommend listening to the episode that we did last week with Derek Rae as good an interview on that topic as you'll hear, Chris thank you so much. Shots on me when Chelsea score eighteen minutes in and make that a two one final hopefully parker is right till we speak again, folks up the Chelsea.

Leicester City Lift 1st FA Cup

"Wat- a dramatic ending unless the city for the first time in the club's history when the fa cup goodness me into sweat. But i think the deserved at the end. You mentioned that we were watching. The game chelsea woke up too late. Tim selection all these things. We'll talk with jokes but from less. He's perspective. I think one i shot in the for the manager who i consider one of the best out there you know. He's done a great job. Eleven that celtic during again it. That's it looks like it'll be in the top. Four is not done yet. Looks likely did it. Without is most influential. Johnny evans who played. But it wasn't so hot to reorganize we've talked about is getting forward we're talked about quality is not for. Belgium is done again on one of the biggest stages. Wanna go that was. I don't talk at the other end. When goalkeeper needs to make a save cost plus michael one of the best saves. I've seen for many a year in any game mason strike and it's so good to have the funds for these players on the support estate joy this moment unless they're and my opinion thought deserving of this coveted clayton's with us as well. You're gonna these great pictures on the wonderful pictures and soda. Sodas of outstanding master plan from brandon. Raja's actually lost johnny evans that they went to back four They got better organized. Chelsea never really got into the game obviously last ten fifteen minutes at push it harder brought in and taking but there was not enough. I mean i fully served by the city. Beautiful go by thielemans no doubt about it but to saves by hospitals. Michael i mean these safes always remind you of his dead father but i think if you talk about customers mike lee and the big big. He's one of the top five goalkeepers in europe. There's no doubt about it to win this trophy today. Means walter them. It's it's an outstanding achievement for the city. But it's a huge huge disappointed appointment for chelsea. Luis garcia is without says. Well what what. Time for the fancy back in the stadium hamas players can trust me if i tell you that he started friend them to get their the winning trophy or get a fantastic able to find having the sharing with fan so you can see his face. Believe it the for for these than through the game. We've seen last a good match to arrive to the antar to get chances. And we've done amazing goal. They're going to get the trophy. The trophy full the funds for the club and again if you see the players enjoy where there is something beautiful that we may so much and if we could see today franklin with us as well chelsea how on frank they just didn't get going early enough in this game. Yes that's what it is. And i was thinking about how i felt you know could be sought for chelsea. But i'm not because you know what i'm happy for for leicester and what they should. In fact it's the victory of the engine football against the new football. The ancient football is maybe less thought for but it's full of hopes and beliefs. And he's what happened to lester. This stop thinking. They believed where chelsea was big rethinking three four times before trying anything and the lessons theme minutes when it starts stopping giving up thinking but just trying to push forward and play vertically definitely fund some ways to to maybe score. But i'm fed up with that football where you turn around to tiki taka. I knew vertical often. You just well. Should i do that. Pass no i. Don't i go back. And i told her. Run like turnaround. That i play humble where at the end of the day is not productive and lester. Give lesson today about what foodball should be. They should be intuitive. It's what we like it because it's intuitive it's not a is not a chess game. It's an intuitive game. And lester just today. How good will be for unity laments. I've seen them many times for belgium. Were going to see a lot of them in the uterus. Probably but to pay out ball up as he dead from it was controversial. Because it come off perez. I think come off his knee or his leg and then aunties on either of a problem with vodka a problem with it and then he picks wall up. Here's a possible heightened bowl. Jails you complain about still a lot to do picks up. Jj who never got cost to anybody all day couldn't get near net is just about the technique see something plays walk on desert complaints from chelsea. Plays the gyms with both forward. Now in the was. I wouldn't be able to tell us. Yes craig fight me the primaries you question mark. Is it a defensive action of from the player with a touchy. The hand always an offensive action. Because if it's an offensive action. There is a foul. Because it could it can attach do with. And if it's a defensive action which could be because he tries to get the ball back. He has the right to touch the ball resistant. Because it before. That's the big question that divide us to explain to us because it's an offensive position in the has but he has maybe a defensive action. So i don't know where to stand i don't know if it's an not and maybe i will have an answer from you from others. Don't have a major. I don't know what the other guys. Thank god of a major problem with it in the end but not just enjoyed the unity lemon strike. We saw not ninety seven. Fa cup final front. We saw a strike from rebecca dematteo. I think in the first half of the game that was from similar distance. Come off the underside of the crossbar. You don t do you do it in a league game and there's another one next week and there's another game next week but in their final but something else a lot more analysis to come them but let's head back to leave for the trophy left.

Va our intervention to deny chelsea. What they were convinced was an equalizing. goal on. The cusp of stoppage-time will always be question. Marks recriminations sensor might have been but that's for the loses not for the witness those fabulous foxes. Who have done it again with a stunning goal from your thielemans and just as astonishing. Save from casper. Schmeichal the pair of them. They're writing themselves. The twelve and a half a cup final today as good of a strike is that was from thielemans in you and i were watching the highlights stephen girard in two thousand six. That is equally up to a schmeichal safe base amount. That's in the conversation as well. One of the greatest saves it now. Casper can look at his dad. Hey let's i've got my own. Fa cup two wonderful moments for leicester city while everyone will talk about vr. Nobody will in that group in that circle in the present time and it's not just the players of the substitutes and those that didn't make the squad today but all the staff member suv travel the highways and byways of england during difficult times television demanding share of the time of meta schmeichal and thought it. There's no party until party shows up. He's out launches his own party not the first of his career baby. The biggest shock win of his career but one that will resonate nonetheless. City founded in eighteen eighty four is less to false just taken them one hundred and thirty seven years to finally get their hands on the. Fa cup found eight by group of former pupils of local school. Wikinson school the long way since then years of relative anonymity keisha moments in the spotlight. Three league cups but now an fa cup which will shortly be presented to them by the president of the football association. His royal highness prince. William that you could cambridge. He is a fan of leicester's midlands rivals. Aston villa. He played a part in opposition to the recently mooted superleague. Mimics like this are why the super league wall such an offensive notion idea the closed shop. The lack of a meritocracy removal of the dreams of the smaller clubs moment captured for prosperity and relate back to thailand by the chapman. I walked sri by hannah. Proper father took over the club when it was down on his knees back. In two thousand ten six years later the premier league in the most unlikely of circumstances five years on the fa cup the fifth time of asking you know. John often the viewers at home. Here you say this coach or this team's punching above their weight and yet everyone will look and say well. How is leicester city punch. Above their weight when they're sitting third in the primarily. I don't think they fully understand the roster size and the amount of money that go into so many other clubs where you talk about the rotation of spots in this heavy congested copay type of schedule in world. Football and yet brendan rodgers. Doesn't have that much and so for them to win this trophy. His first one in england but more so potentially qualified for the champions sake really is a trip season lest as recruitment has been grey day the best part of a decade. Now been difficult because they don't have the same financial resources. Some of those kinds of themselves as superclubs lester. There is not the most attractive place to live to number remarkable city one hundred miles north of london in the east mittens but they produce premier league winners and now fa cup winners as well. Fist-bump for brendan rogers from prince. William players coming up individually normally his role. Highness wu tang the medals around necks of the players not in the kobe era. Sadly maybe next year we will return to that. Fa cup final tradition. Some of those didn't make the pitch. Let ricardo puerta chair whose goals were so vital. Through the course of the rounds the city about to become the forty fifth different winners alva competition that has sides as diverse. As the older tokens the cathians on the wondrous and the royal engineers. Its listed past winners. Wes morgan involved. Only got the word this morning that he would definitely be named on the bench with him declines the handshake most politely. Casper's michael. Who now has a reason to strike his name. In the history books not least as captain of leicester city as nesta gets to live the dream of all football clubs after a hundred and thirty seven years of trying they can lift the fa cup high to the skies past and presents mortgage mico the city not just daring to dream but living the ultimate dream of winning the. Let's hope they take better care of it and asta last year because at this stage pierre emerick aubameyang was dropping. Eight on the wembley turf spent a couple of months being replay repaired before being returned to the all still club who have now given. It's up to the faa and they have delivered into the care new holders of the competition. Leicester city taylor. These two sides have to do it all again in three days. Time in the premier league with a big price which is unreal. but don't tell leicester city that. Because i think for the next twenty four to thirty six hours. They're going to enjoy that first. Fa cup trophy. They've scored a goal. We'll be talking about the years to come and casper schmeichal say that will be ranked alongside the famous stop. Something's jimmy montgomery nineteen seventy-three is one of the best ever master record. The they have beaten chelsea by goal to nil. The wnba is on. Its way back playing basketball in a pandemic. Looks like this. No mask no six feet apart. Took put yourself in harm's way. It was a scary decision. We're dedicating this season. To ron taylor. The unity that we were able to experience with something that we won't forget and we can lean on as we move forward. I'll do it all over again because bigger than me bigger than my teammates. Espn films presents. One forty four presented by honda now streaming on espn plus. Do you think it meant more or less place. Do we will end up being impartial as yukon. Eisley the something quite pleased seeing what that meant to a team that hasn't won that plays at harvard. Yeah we saw whereas morgan at the end who's the iconic figure in the two thousand and sixteen league team team that won the premier league under cloudy around the area but that's all changed now and to think what's happened to that club in the ownership of that club with the tragic helicopter crash not too long ago that killed the owner but yet still often turmoil dot club still seems to be on rock solid foundations. Yeah and i think one of the reasons brennan brennan and religious has bought it off the idea the it would go to them or something. I mean not may hop in at some point but he seems at the moment happy with the structure. He's with the playing squad he's on. Why wouldn't you be. I mean the probably going to be playing champions league football next year and this is going to be one of the greatest nights of these playoffs career with funds stadium. Yeah deservably went in with one of the fa cup gold with one of the fa cup saves koss. Michael who i think was talking about lately. Father hasn't got the presence of us. Michael most of us played against because he was such a big imposing goalkeeper has short saving koss michael as excellent up to excellent celebrations around untold. We can now go to women with alexis name. Thanks dan yeah. I think we can only just start to hear. You can't even hear myself. Which is always shocked. They are terrorists going here at wembley left the right behind to the playoffs. Walking around nato. Ioc parents teddy chia. And that's their hands on their heads of just in the moment is incredible. It's absolutely incredible as you were kind of alluded to in the studio this this feel special. you know. obviously chelsea could have. They would've been happy. Buffet is left the city funds. You know you seen people in tears. This is different and it's been an absolutely incredible day to be on this. It's nice that you can't quite hear the studio. Because he shows that people have a good time. We're just the right spot. I like to you know we were hearing from. The commentators was saying it's weird that we kind of look at this as underdog or under fox. See what. I did their stories. Because let's the city are actually high than chelsea in the premier league. They are to be considered as a top club in the primarily gor. Justin football at least here in england. But it's still kind of feels like an underdog They didn't yesterday was on the show. And i thought chelsea going to win to. Maybe i'll disrespectful with that. Because always has a say chelsea fill out during a good moment but let's the city is still ahead of them going into the game. You saw the way. They'll both teams played the author much in it but was beautiful goal consequence special credits which michael because he was in my youth team. I saw what he went through to get to this level. It's unbelievable i'm so happy so proper him and you know that's one of the best as i've seen such a big occasion His father would be definitely one. That's the players. I think are coming around with the trophy. We'll see we can get them behind us in just a little bit but if you're gonna win the fa cup. Let's have a word on that goal from your utility. We had no words our jaws. We went dead silent. But you know the thing thing was though the moment the ball his feet you could hear the less defined felon him to shoot said. They do have a level of trust in him to be able to do that. And lo and behold the strike was so nice. Capela had no chance analysis such a big moment in the game. I think from there less than they would say. I don't think they were incredible throughout the game but it took that chance and then a defended so well. I think brenda kinda got tactics. Right laid doors as well because as soon as it was coming on west bogan. What's coming on so the macho gordon chelsea. No when bill came on the more dynamic balsam today you look. I don't i don't know if they deserve to win. Credits left the city for that. I don't think from this point forward grasp bit more respects on this massive massive big up to my boy west mortgage jamaica cup final champion. But let's talk about brendan rodgers. We saw the players voicing him up and there's been a lot of stories about him in the english media leading up to this week because you know he was involved in a primarily title race with liverpool he has won trophies in scotland. You know he helps. Swansea know win the championship. Playoff finals yet. Still almost feels underrated of sorts. When you try to compare them to the managers at least europe do you think this has helped his case. I think it has. I think it has then someone is in europe. It's because top job become available on the conversation at this moment in time for jobless available people talking about it dispersed brendan rodgers in the situation with a team. That's in the top four. There's just one the fa cup that within the last year's one of premier league realistically is it is a step up for him you know. They might be more ambitious today. Lesser show. i've had more symptoms across the so. I think he i think he has. This is a big moment for him and his career wasn't is still going to be able. I'm not sure but it's definitely something which nobody can take away from them. absolutely well. the players are still coming out. It's only get noisier and noisier will held back to studio in the meantime dan. Thanks very much guys. Let's take you through the highlights. Send show the two thousand twenty one. Fa cup final. The one hundred fortieth final in the history of the competition didn't pick out the highlights and the sixty third minute. Pretty much tells you everything you need to know what happened the opening our but then this we're gonna be watching loughry reach james. Pasta of the was playing right. Side is peres course to block it hits the need and then the right elbow deemed by varma because come off the the. The other part of the elect faucet wasn't an infringement however i should whether you agree disagree. Whatever what you can't debate the quality of their strike. You pick the ball at the time to get him because he took it so emily used. Ti kosova as ways a shield around cape. I am absolutely bent. The bold beautiful chelsea really only site to attack the last ten minutes heads by schweikle. Not be another one in the talking points. Shell willing to play alonzo played in effective. That was one of the surprises in this election. Just off the bench Taught cheer from cosmos weicker as you said fingertips that's the difference. Then mountain thinks he's scored. Yeah yeah i mean mission. Monk any bitten sa- clean is a western clean. Nobody left so he doesn't. I'm tying to take on on michael's reaction. They are what this little calmer doesn't do justice piece in the ball as incredible pot. Life life game speed and for to make not say me one of the best saves and a cup final obscene for years and ultimately won the has got them over the life absolutely berlin and of course chelsea did have the one in the back of the net. It was an own goal eventually unsure who watch and too big ways morgan. Who just off the bench could do nothing about it and the celebrations are going on. It's is extra time and then for my so close since she's author ca. I mean i is black and white whether we late in the laws in the way that interpreted in england. Whatever say is offsite. I would like to see the laws chain so it's not a game of inches because off site is always a vantage and when we're talking to saint to me as wrenches is no get into volunteers however it was the correct decision less than the first time in the club's history winning the cup beating chelsea by one goal to nil team trying to be the difference between the two sides. Luis garcia is with us. Louise just take her. How to strike back is from thielemans. Just fantastic i mean. We were expecting. He was having such a doc- gain control the past few process. But definitely acquis these fro- from me. I know that he's gonna fantastic strike. But i think they saw himself so alone without no one to pass. Because i think the body was in the left side. So couldn't try to to find me. Try and i think he will john on thursday. We're mentioning before the game. Two thousand and the final about data strike for almost seven ventura any kind of similar to that same distance. Strive because you are late in the game. You know what you're going to do. Just try and he'd the ball. And i think he was just beautiful fantastic. Goal will disturb for for less than that he was of course. A struggling tried to create chances that it was a beautiful golf by a goal. That's worthy of winning any competition. The absolute beauty. I mean thielemans not only had an outstanding game but this this goal obviously puts the stamp on the game. They won the midfield battle and often we say in know and football that the midfielder game they he and indeed. They won the battle against contained. Georgina and they made a big difference but to scored in such a manner is something very special. But it's also. I think you know at the end of the day. It's a it's a complimentary city. What they build over the years now obviously five years ago but the title of the primly tile everybody talked about the sensation and the surprise and that was impossible but they build consistency and brennan. Raja's took a glove over there and build more and more consistency. Now they are consistently in the top four five in england and even the bremmer league ahead of chelsea so today's win actually is not a surprise. It's a it's a statement of consistency. What they've done what they build what they believed they moshe. No part of it was unbelievable to to see. They have a great chemistry and a great energy and they've fully deserve that. Fa cup energy and team sunday. It was it was a picture of franken by the celebrations that we saw after the game. It's what we want to see when you watch the final you want to see people getting crazy and when he scored the goal and after the celebration is that the level we are speaking to see a celebration and again. I think. I don't know if they deserve it but i'm pleased for them because it creates history and what is what we like in a in football and as you said you know it's it's a statement of consistency is not like lester major surprise. Of course jesse was the favorite. But at the end of the day. Lester he's thirty in the league leicester on the league like five years ago. Let's do is creating somebody some something absolutely fantastic and players coming. Let's see it was in. Monaco was really poor. Is signed to leicester. Lets people in france. Say why do you go to leicester when you belong to monaco. It's it's not a promotion. Yeah it is definitely is for fun. Now why do you leave antigen to go to lester where nobody knows. Nobody wanna go. Yeah there is a reason. Why and the reason why he's you win. Titles you can win ethic apps and you are absolutely promoted. When you you signed for leicester now brennan roaches. Sometimes was a joke figure. Wasn't he when he went to liverpool. Obviously did documentary. Kind of some jokes went to celtic hugely successful. A- always see proving himself once again in the premier league sunny silencing. His critics yeah. I'm not doing well. I don't think he's going to critics in terms of his football monument. Not many that have some field stuff in rettig. I think he's come down over the years. I mean some of the stuff in the early days was was cringe. But that's aside from his at monza junior liability job swansea. It should have won the league liverpool. They capitulated they were seven points. Cleveland saw three games go. It was the completely folded. He had huge success at celtic. Myo club but you know people. We saw a button a wage. We'll look at the compensation and all that and you know whether that's right or wrong. Commenced aside the under claudio. Were hot watch. The played some great football players. Recruited will we look at like catania on job. Indeed he's done you look at the site. James justin from luton. Who's played all across the bought four and he's been mostly. I mean some of these guys have not played live without the started the game with a half a half joni evans. No wonder the butler was all over the place. He was dropping off. He wasn't fed the of the game and played. Recently with james justin. I mentioned of had modern engine right. If changed the shape of the team. They've gone to your by three. They've started to front quite a while ago. You're not found his form. He's been able to utilize squad. I think he's managed to absolutely brilliant. I think it deserves s. Adult thing does many critics. I've changed my opinion as an essential. I always thought it would be looking to jump ship. Thank you will move eventually but looks to me. That is no particular rush to spurs for example. Exactly nothing maybe. Some of his in myself included just thing taught them snow or somebody comes available. Something that brendan rodgers will just job and we do see the known again. But i'm just thinking late. Maybe advising a young player at the club a year or two longer. The he's thinking. I'm gonna wait and see what i can build on what we already have particularly if they finish off the job in the premier league last season lightly should do and they play in europe to leak competition next year. I mean how much does it get the when the africa cup to know that you're going to be gone and to the champions league and test yourself once again at that level. I don't see any major reason the moment for him to jump ship. Meanwhile for chelsea thomas to co of course already. Since he took over the blues in january tired they have We have we've seen throughout the season. They struggled to score lots of goals. But they've been tied to the back and that's what has been the key to their success. You'll get it wrong. If indeed he did get it wrong today obviously if you lose the game then a couple of things that went wrong and rediscovered it before the game. We were so surprised. Crew sample is was not stopping the game. He did really well last couple weeks. I think it was not enough attacking power in the site studying it. And then you through everybody in the last twenty twenty five minutes and actually the dynamic of the game chains the almost equalised obviously was a very tight the situation there but i think he should have been a little bit more courageous from the beginning. More players Going forward as being. Greg obviously is not is not a right wing is not a right-wing. He's right back and all that so so he fought himself in the right being a position. That is not his willie. I think they'll probably when you look back as manager now and and you kind of rep it up again this game. He has only a couple of days because obviously still play primarily and and you still has a very very important champions the final ahead of him but he will realize that a couple of things that he thought were the right. Things didn't work out. And now yes time to correct it and it will be interesting to see the next few games by chelsea frank frustrations you from chelsea points of view. The most today. I'm sorry i didn't hear what you said. What repeatedly is what frustrates you the most from chelsea perspective today frank do fact that the again the the slow down the game when the okay until the last third of the of the pitch and then they go around they think too much did deed digest too much. That's my concern there. Well should i do do that. You'd go there at the end of the do nothing because if you start thinking and you not intuitive you. Don't you don't do that after i think. Alonzo was by choice as well. I think john wells should have played adverse. And should i be lined up to stotts because he can bring more defensively and also bring something offensively. That doesn't bring alonzo is if can free the space the space and doesn't freed. That's assuming constant for me and and what did chill the of the game. I don't think lonzo able to do it. When they scored the goal was disallowed. And maybe he could have done that many times. My concern and still. I think it made toco may two too long to to make the substitution as well as you mentioned police each maybe should have whether start or going go on earlier. I think that's my problem. My program is always been the problem that i have which is the season they don't score enough goals with the talented they have. There is a problem finding the solution to be in position to score goals. I think when you always look team in the manager after the game you look about. Sometimes people. And i think frank touched a few times is just too much too much trying to over. Thank right you look at the hospital quits. And reese james scenario. No split has been played quite a bit recently as a wing box. But if you're going to have to them in the same state. And i know i played regimes. We believe because he wanted to come by the fa behind and uses pace. And but i split has one of the more solid defenders in europe and quick and often. He's not defend post as well bar but he's he's pretty good and on the other hand you take then diminish the attacking threat chelsea got nothing literally from why. Today everyone was sort through medal eventually suited lester mountain you narrow and so that can play that into the hans you thank you laura. You've got a young guy. Nineteen years old are believe he's nineteen told us That must've been plan life by left wing back for stuff and yet you don't have a really good at talking in regions reese james running putting on the pressure and listen when you when you play against teams and i don't wanna horrible what you peckinpah. Nineteen you'll be absolutely a never spring. Let you want to win the game. Let's go and play him right. Whereas you weak point where can we get them unless your minds about player. He's not come off. With bacchus gordon a great goal oh trough of a wonder goal but defensively still leading the game and as you said as a creditor run all day and defend all day. But it can. It can really really to keep the bulk. Simple pasta is not going to get done. The wang reese james. Could what really bulbs right. But he's not going to from right wing bug. And i just feel that was. I was trying to do with james. I think that's a classic case of over. Thank in this situation as twenty. I'm guys couldn't be agree more. I think that when you are. I'm gonna say my about of course took he shows how good he's monitoring this conversation. How will he did for for chelsea bodies through that when they arrive at halftime. We all agreed that the need is something different. You need a change in forty five minutes after five minutes because you can see that you are no brake lights of off of less than i think. Brenda regular red berry what to what to do everything into them either. So i'm up with a lot of people in the media and lead the flanks and like like like saying same james in in the pack and you just make a change your swap it. There is no big change about. James is going to give you something else. So it's something that you can start from the after halftime. Do any james enough that you bring the players like policy players. Who who you're gonna need because you need to break those lines with so many people you need people who want to one. That came breaking something different. That can create something special. And i think that's that's policy and you take too much time to put on the feeling after you wanna bring everything. People are totally in the air on hold on they were right side to try to cross but you are lead because you are one. Goal and brenda was just one more people in the middle because everybody was trying to go through the middle. So it's easier to talk. When is everything is finished. And you can but i think you should have again into the into what he was happening during the game the week to the situation and make a couple oguchi because for example and other what was said. Georgina was playing so was low into the field. And you need a little bit quick to move side to side. You wanna move that defense of of let things that i think who have managed better but of course is easier. Now that we've seen the result is the first of four huge games for chelsea of course still looking to book a place in the champions league next season they face less wrong. Choose a did that play on his mind. In that team selection well guessing i mean thank. You should have be nothing you worry about the beg important game though. Yeah and then brush everybody down. And i feel engines of pot and being tired of playing football you know your best say out and brushed them off of the game and then see who's ready to get into three days even do though that's why i'm seeing and it loo- games. I understand. sometimes you have to think about rotating but not in an epic final domain. You go take care of business false to do you think. He put that team out because he thinks that team could beat less as opposed to that being his best team. That team could be less than otherwise you wouldn't select but there's no is based team right on the two go hand in hand. He's got the wrong as simple as i. I mean i don't know. I just think i just think something's overcomplicate and once again van. An effective zay h has had trouble seasons. Yeah enter the star is an effective. I i just think the manager one manager wrong and the other manager then have that many choices sure he. He was forced to in making decisions. Brendan rodgers in the end. But he didn't have the choices that took wahad thinking. The end took juggle the bulbs and ended up dropping off of them. Frank yes just an example of of of a statement in fact that he didn't put down the best team. We all consider that mendy is the best goalkeeper than on the on. The other side brendan rodgers. Didn't hesitate onto this show in the final. I don't know it's a fantastic sean. From chins but i think maybe supposedly mendy could have been able to get it. And maybe the substitute of show couldn't get the mon- shots and he would have been a different result. So yes. I think you have to put down the best team. You have four and if he can find all and it didn't it didn't lewis. You'll fellow countrymen being blamed for chelsea losing the fa cup final. Save that frank sense. Of course also the point everywhere everywhere who was wrong in. I think it's very easy to say that. Yeah through that many stronger is so he could have could have may might save it. But i think well and we have to a credit and try to keep it. Because he's a fantastic as from far away so if you could save your ideas claim to goalkeeper keeper. That's done so much doing his job. That's it from frank trying to dig out of this whole again. You take a look at and do you think too preoccupied slightly by what still to come. I don't think so. I think he badly wanted to win. This match huge. Winning an fa cup is something very very outset. You can achieve in your career. So i don't think that he by any means you know look towards the next couple of games coming up but obviously when you then summarize a game and when you lose a game you go into details and you you look at the little pieces. That don't work out. You know you work on your postle and beat already discussed in pasta on the right side of advice be wak- and james maybe it should have switched these two roles on the on the other side. You knew. Look at brennan. Rogers and he had to make the adjustment. When johnny evans came off he went into a bag. Four and he dropped then castagna as a as to right back and head. Albright's in in front of him out tremendously. Well you know but the game again is one in the midfield was won by thielemans in by indeed. But we'll definitely go through those pieces and say shit you know i. I missed a couple of points here. You know i could have done this. I could have done that. But that's also about the growth of a manager. It's also about you know accepting that you make mistakes throughout your career. You will make some small mistakes and they cannot end up in a big loss like like it happened today. So you gotta give all the credit. Today brendan rodgers and outstanding less than team and and congratulate them for an amazing achievement. And again you know when you then look forward to a european champions league final you gotta turn the page as as quick as you can get your players back on track you know. Get refocused on the next few games still to outstanding games in in the premier league and then try to do everything you can to be new pinch embassy. Final world cup. You can swear it's all right. Let's go to wembley and catch up with native alexis show. He goes through without swearing. If you don't mind the emotions of what it was like when she well thought that he got the equaliser involved council imagine. The roller coaster. Emotions between the two sets of fans was quite something. Oh my goodness. It absolutely wasn't like i was saying native. And i were sat right on the in the media side that was right in the middle of the left the fans and you could probably hear a pin drop in our side of wembley and then of course once. Vr came in nato. I mean that must have been absolute heartbreak for the chelsea It was it was chelsea points throughout the day. So it's a half that moment and that reprieve quite very attacking team out words for less than a bit more defensive but then they celebrated that says possible. Vr check and you see the less defined star celebrates and then very quickly. The offside was given an. I was surprised that that they did it. And then all of a sudden as i say the jubilation among soliciting funds was right there and it was Is my first time being stadium. Seen a big moment live big vr. Call go from one side to the other and yeah. It was use special. I think to be able to sit unless the city funds like we candidate today. You made a very good occasion. There are two fans right in front of me that i think for most of the second half. They were watching facing us with their backs to the pitch because they were praying at one point two one i think just see the drain from their faces when they thought they had scored that goal on of all people. What gone very rough reception when his name was right out with chelsea team. She but you know a lot of talk of course in studio about chelsea and about thomas to his decisions today. Did you see anything that he probably could have done. Better with a loss you can say you could have done certain things like our surprise initially when i did see reaches playing right if the three quits plan higher but then you look at. Maybe the reason he's doing for it is because of jamie body behind. And i think reese james overall did very well against jaime volley i think if we look at the game if we try to get jackson jamie via didn't have his best game for leicester city today and i think some of that was to do the way james. I know the people as marshall lennon essentially the same route to go with the natural on either side. But as i say it's one or two things that i think georgie knows is best. Contact wasn't his best but ultimately the place which he sends how good enough to win the game but they just didn't perform to their own standards today. And i think the city also ended up capitalizing on that and yeah chelsea. They'll be disappointed because they could have been. There could have been a lot more for them today because they in good form going into the perfect. Thomas most arapahoe pierre. Thomas kelly's actually just behind us or now tire left so we're probably going to try to be a little nice on a particular. Every timing was perfect for us to chelsea still have a lot to play for. They do have less again on us and they've got a little thing called the champions league final but that's up against your boys. They're of manchester city. So it's gonna be a tough task but we'll see exactly how blues can march on. Dan just shower him. Say that frank says the the started ruin it. Everyone career reese james. Good job defensively. That was the reason for not. Then you negating the white area on the right hand side. I mean as a negative approach really from a team our favorites. If we want to be frank. Cabrera is quite defensive And i think an ira. The took ocean have been worrying as much about listeners. He wasn't hudson does put as a right wing back on. The thomas took. It was a strange one when we saw early on You know he would have given you more from not possession that just think that combination of those two. Those possessions didn't work and also talking about the in the park since he's injury coverage has been a huge mess. Think right because he was a player was playing really well for tickling chelsea as a player that does play the bowl. Quick gino. he's a player that well we'll get forward. Get onto the edgy box. Take potshots you'll try and play. Posses it tries to play forward. Whenever can he's been. I think is a hamstring injuries. How close he as if he's going to be available soon or not but they must have been in the middle of the park so It just just was not chelsea's day. They did not play well. The manager did not team selection Correct and less set the overcame the problems they hot on the equality in the end that you know when you're when you're talking about fielder has to stand up you know shit with quality from twenty five yards and when you go keep haas to stand up and he wasn't busy casper's michael during the nineteen minutes. He didn't have many safes to make and to really key wants to make from the show. Head domitian shaw. And when he was asked the question he was absolutely on his game on both occasions. Lewis what does this mean for tuesday once again to read again. What is to happen. I guess the game plan for the royal exactly the same. He's going to change much bodies through that in the is going to try to once again tried to rotate to see what is gonna happen. There are from because they were today. Once peaking bennett up for on the world's the work and he knows that me say i'm sure that when he writes woman's once again the game is going to find out that it wasn't the right situation he's going to try to rotate it again. We've seen a very often. The last couple of maltese been trying to find. Who are the best three to rotate ben policy. They're seeking habits playing together at the end he he needs to try to find the ones that they work in trying to keep it because they have in play. I think two or three games in a row the same ones that that's very sequel to because at the end the same at the bag. You guys were mentioning before when you are not the the change that you made up the bag. They are very difficult to to to call with because they need to. Have you know what you got in the right where you're gonna let the same every single time that i have to look forward to seeing east. There is verse eats to see the different players. And then you need to understand impossible differently so something to think about the show. That took jim storage. Do you know the only thing and you know i. I'm not one for appeasing any audience. And i couldn't stop for sitting here and trying to appease american audience don't care but i am scratching my head about this situation are really the only thing i can think of is. The toll. miss tickle is concerned about has injury history right picking up entities plane getting games and then getting injured again. That's the only reason. I can see for christian Not starting the head of hakim's age ca. There's no other way because is a guy who makes things hop and he's a guy who can get on the ball and run at defenders and sometimes frustration and sometimes it doesn't come off but he's always looking to get something and connect people and the only reason i can think for no select once again as he has either saving them for champions league final potentially always worried about has history of picking up engineers. Because i just don't understand why he's not getting more gametime or yorgen is it. Thomas toco hates americans no absolutely the in this whole process. That'd be ceo. That has a couple of months live But also team aware no harvard's or you know. I think the only one that is really without a doubt it has to play as mason. Mount is really a very special kit there but he hasn't found his right combination yet. He's means who is a fantastic number nine that you could actually play team obama underneath and then you can have an opp- elicits side as mon on the other side all these options we can discuss them up and down but he hasn't found a perfect fit yet for probably none of them you know and this is this is kind of something where you as a manager you try to create your your group. You're starting eleven. The based on their their positive sides based on their potential base quality. So how do i get one hundred percent out of christian pulisic. How do i get one hundred percent team. Then you try to work that that apostle in training sessions day in day out and i think after these couple of months at thomas who is there chelsea records speak for him and he hasn't found that yet it's net not solved yet there's no No one hundred percent yet in every of those attacking players and this is a an interesting discussion to have and and still i mean the chambas. The final this Unbelievable it's huge and they have big game still in prima league to secure the jamstik spot for next season. But it's still a work in progress so it's not some you can never have too many players but sometimes you can have too many decisions right. Managers are always wanting equality and begging squads but then not gigi decisions to me particularly if you have good quality players in terms of finding a combination. I fought when they went and played. And what's the real madrid's training out of amos when they went and played over there and the champions league the first leg of that nocco and it was publicity and hannah look good combination to me as the iran real madrid ragged in the first half with the movement and the peace and and vendor making runs and picking up these positions and then he changes again. I don't know if he's again. Just i don't either. Engineers was not are still not happy with particular combinations but at times i mentioned that him and madrid. I thought that lula decent combination to me final thought then on the final with you frank just to just to say he's not only on police but when a ducal signed it put on the right side and he was on fire and suddenly. It's an adult disappeared. I don't remember was an injury. But i don't think so it because of the rotation systems and in fact the players are losing the flow and the don't know where to stand we've they're gonna play so maybe doesn't suit player. It works for manchester city. We we see that many times. We've guatemala maybe the player that he needs to to rotate that way. But maybe it doesn't work for police. Maybe no word for the others so he has to find the right solution but he has to find it very quickly because sometimes he seems to have it and he loses it. So hopefully it's going to find it. Very very soon is playing and tom to lock in the final playoff spot. Slow gives teams place for a defend. Your position mr kirby and upset the your anything can happen in a given night and begin your run. Only the strong survive make history performance. It's not done yet. Wind to get in town it's nba on espn town. The state farm play intern wednesday on. Espn many could have predicted. Shock beating frankfort. But that's exactly what happened for more on this you can. Princeton is with us here. How bad is this from. Frankfurt others jao unacceptable. I mean this is a disaster. They played a fantastic season until a couple of weeks ago. And then obviously they announced the general manager of ready. Bob will leave at the end of the season. Then the coach that he will leave and then things saw was starting to fall apart and and this was today. I mean this is to enter at your own. You have it in your own hands to enter the champions league talking about seventy to one hundred million euros entering the champions league for next season and to give it away in in that way today against childcare. Who's already relegated. Obviously they're playing for pride and they played really well but bring for the pride not for anything anymore to gain. This is a disaster. An absolute disaster. Find frank food and yeah. It's football is full of surprises until the very end. No surprises though in the by munich. Freiburg game because robert levin skin would score of course starring gulf eleven dollars scape convert in the penalty kick that is fortieth bundesliga goal of the season matching their the iraqi good moolah. This is what eleven dollars ski had to say about matching that record boy. I feel incredible now. i don't understand. Maybe what exactly happened. And what i did because you know record to be very something amazing something special and i know that what i did what we did belong also. The team proved this mighty teammates also on the on the on. The as. we've all scott what we did and that's why in this moment. Maybe it's too early to to talk about this. Because i don't believe it yet and i didn't believe that can scored so many goals in one season with so many less games as well. So that's why. I'm very proud of all team. And all mighty mite morton achievement fantastic achievement which congress -gratulations to what about them and asks you forty goals equalizing the regular get miller. It's it's really something very very special. And he could be very very proud of himself. It means a lot to everyone by munich because get miller has been. I mean the foundation of this club. We've all these goals in the seventies winning the european championship the world cup but especially scoring so many goals for lunatic for so many years. He was billed. Really the foundation alongside of france peckinpah ernest paul bride in the seventies eighties. Then of this probably right now. Biggest slob in the world. And so it's a special achievement. From robot limited skates also special. How they kind of communicated this whole your last couple of weeks to get closer and closer to gut middle because the middle is very sick and so it's a tribute to get to. I grew up with. And i adored him admired him throughout my entire life and the way they show respect for the with this kind of situation probably even guy was very very very nice very moving. Meanwhile focusing on the relegation scrap some significant results. They hurt the lynn nil. Nil leaning clone in big trouble members show. We mentioned already down. One games remain clone in the second from bottom spot vertebra mean meanwhile in the playoff spot vertebrae losing against all spur today by two goals now. Bela fell meanwhile get big point against hoffa time for the moment to keep them safe. It's going to be some final day. Isn't it yeah. And this is what all relegation battles all about about drama and now we have real drama into next week because anything is still possible. Cologne could still step out of that. Also out of the relegation playoff spot up to two spots they are safe. And obviously the third last place place the playoff game against the third highest team ranked in this in the second bundesliga. So this is. I mean this is what it's all about. It will be down to the wire and it will be very exciting speak again. Thank you very much just reminded doubleheader and we have fee from germany. tomorrow mind taking on verse. You're a win for dortmund. We'll put them in the champions league that's followed by live sick against wolfsburg remind. Espn and the new home for the league s. They signed an eight year deal this week. English and spanish language. It's been quite the season as an athletico madrid with two matches remaining two points clear at the top of the table of real madrid. The defending champions just to remind who's got left laugh matric goes the new england. Let's say let's it will bow and then it's a home boston around talk about them but for athleti it's also sooner at home and then a way against real vied lead. Luis garcia is with us. Louis went in this league. The gresh doesn't nothing pro at the moment is ones who are going to be favorites in the last two games i e bus own a house. They say when they play against consol they got the draw you. It wasn't enough and they get out to three points. Mossy lhasa last weekend with barcelona getting on all the draw against live under through through. I threw away their chances of trying to will. A legal remedy is always being days being quiet. No maybe with the best football showing the best football but again with the quantity they gotta from with benz and leaving the team and they got there they got behind but this allegra marie who was the one who maybe we all doubts one month ago when they struggling to get results with a lot of draws they managed to find again the the star of the competition when they started being on the game nasi by the bug. We see maleness style and they start getting once again results that we said draw against barcelona the day at the top and i think that they are going to monitor to to arrive to the last game with off getting into trophy. Great stuff louis. Thank you very much looking forward to working with you. More la liga comes to espn in that historic eight year deal. Meanwhile craig of course the fa cup final. The big story in england today less the city beating chelsea and made it with the fans in the tears everything all emotion. It just brings home doesn't it. How could it have enjoyed lesson. We will find to get the the soccer on tv and as we did during in particular during the height of the pandemic however the longer it went on the more hollow it was feeling these big vice stadiums and nobody the and i think it was the effective players as well because they call it the games out onto debt but just seeing this game today and i know haven't been that stadium as often as a hobby but it's fantastic stadium when twenty thousand. A kind of wonder. You know harvard that feeling such a big stadium but we've been so used to empty stadiums done a really good atmosphere. It really did less than for the first time in the history of the club winning the fa cup final. Hey this bomani jones. What's your favorite podcast.
