Caught Offside: Caught Offside Cup

"Caught Offside with Andrew gumming and JJ Davani. Oh yes caught offside from the upper upper west side of Manhattan Andrew Bundling and J. J. Devaney what's up brother. It's quite weak Andrew. Flight Week McGregor sironi Oh espn Saturday night. Not that I'm GonNA fight with you. Okay no because people have complained that people had the podcast. Course I think people have had it. I don't believe that to be the case but they do want us to whiteness. And it's not a contrived thing we re genuinely just disagree. Look I'm I'm not GONNA start pretending to agree on things just to appease people I don't. I don't think that people want that either so I don't know whatever the show has been it's going to continue to be now. I'm sorry you say what it has been what it will continue to be. People are looking for a segment. Andy's life problems. Yeah and these issues. I saw tweeted a poll about that people wanted wall. I'M NOT GONNA force that every week doesn't happen every week. It happens a lot though. Well well maybe I am telling me a lot about certain things. We'll be walking down the hallway and you go. Weirdest thing happened today. Actually I did have one today. I'll do it real quick because I wanted wanted to get to know. Say to the end all right all right market me. Write it down because I'll forget. Yeah this was actually quite annoying. The gold it doesn't happen all the time though. But it happened today on the train You know what I was GonNa say at the start of this. PODCAST was kind of dreading this podcast. In particular. And Look I've grown immune to doing these shows after Tottenham losses to Liverpool in the cough side. Cop It doesn't even move me anymore. The game ended did and I was pretty emotional about it until you obviously had to text me. GotTa do a show on Monday while this is fresh. Our heads can't wait to talk about it. Yeah me neither UNBELIEV- but no but the only reason is I already know I've been getting the tweets of people who are tired of US arguing about out stuff and I already know before we even start this podcast that we're going to disagree on something and I'm already I'm just preemptively annoyed about it and so I don't know what else like. Let's be calm and rational then. Oh yeah well. I think we always try to be that. It's just I guess you get annoyed at my passion and then I get annoyed at your contempt for my five us and your smugness on my opinion genuinely. I'm not that way. I'm just just believe that I am. I know you do Yeah so we'll we'll talk about the caught Offside Cup Sergio Guero has to be mentioned of course The US as we speak. I don't know if the press conference has wrapped but Brian McBride is now the GM of US men's soccer so they he spoke this morning him and Ernie the store. I think there's we'll we'll go through some of it because I still don't know if there's total clarity over everyone's roles here no now So we will talk about that. Maybe in the second half of the popular even what a general manager will actually do and he he does lay it out. I don't know if you've seen some of this. But he does lay out some of his responsibilities but I just sometimes him and Ernie Stewart I just worry about overlap versus collaboration ration- I duNNo. It's kind of feels a little bit. Like unchartered territory. which doesn't necessarily mean that this is bad in the past different in the panic after not qualifying for Russia twenty eighteen? It does feel like there were jobs created to address issues but they are now the same job job one create time machine and Reinstall Jurgen Klinsmann and as manager because we would have made it to the semi finals of the World Cup Let's see here all right. Let's just start with the big story from the weekend. Of course on this show Tottenham Verse Liverpool One nil it goes to Liverpool. They just simply they don't lose even when they don't play great It's just the way it is Tottenham. Were Kinda just very Tottenham E in this In certain ways in fact here I have. I don't think we're talking to me at all Tom. Well well in that. They lost to Liverpool in Austin that they struggled to create well they had a few legit great goalscoring opportunities but when when they decided to play after around seventy minutes. Yeah but for the most part like if you go back to pre Marino Pocchettino really like second half of last season. Listen Positano up. Through now Tottenham have kind of been this team that are not possession based and are counterattacking based and. I think that that is again what they were yesterday. I would disagree with that. They also were also even in the midst even in the midst of that Collapse at the end of last season in all in everything but the Champions League in the midst of that you had a trip to Anfield where by anybody's admission. If we're being totally fair you should have come away with the minimum of little probably with three points. Considering the chances that we're spurred there was every chance. There is every possibility that that should have happened. But but but anyway this is what they have been. Counterattacking signed that is not possessing the ball against against teams that are of their quality or better than even against Iraq's they allow. I mean it was all their goals. Were counterattacking goals. This with with patterns of play things happened. There was interchanges this is this is where I knew it was going to go so I have my observations. I want to hear from you. You're the spurs fan I will. Here's here's the issue that I have with with people and you happen to be sitting in that chair so it's going to feel like it's directed at you but it's just kind of a narrative at large people hate Josie Marino. And that's it and they do and so because he's cocky because you know because of the way he is because people don't always love the brand of football that he plays people have decided over the course of years that they don't liked him and so they are going to fit their narratives about him into a box. And this applies to Tottenham fans applies to non Tottenham fans and I feel like there is a sense of not being totally fair with our judging the way things are progressing right under I mean. Let's forget it's Josie Marino there. I mean look at the way that team was said. Open that first. Half Total and utter submission. It was at times there was six at the back with four in front of it. When they got the ball eventually law of averages they got the ball back they well-needed needed up anywhere? What was interesting the couple of times things came? Offer them where they pressured Henderson with his back to them created added a chance where there was a mistake by Gomez they created a chance but like for most of that half. It was total an author submission and they still conceded a goal. Right now the stats are around. You Tottenham have never ever ceded control of again like this to annual their team now. Oh here's here's a Liverpool Fan. Liverpool are an excellent side right now but taught them didn't even try and test limitations of that midfield test the fatigue of the aside until twenty minutes towards the end. But that's not what Marino wanted. Marina went into this game. Hyping Liverpool praising Liverpool complaining about his lack of options person's and and just sit seeding the game to Liverpool beforehand until the second half when I think there was a dawning realization that Liverpool weren't quite data's it was only one nil at halftime and Tottenham player ten fifteen yards higher up the field and started to get some success as Liverpool. Tired more more more than that though. You know we have this manager talking about options this dot look at the difference assessable made when he came onto the field. Like I contacted Ontai of it that you have this player. That was sort transformative in the Spanish league on so coveted by the previous manager and he's left idling titling on the bench when the impacting mid equipment that made throughout the entire game would have been amazing but look. This is what I said at half-time tell him I tweeted. This out. Marino was expected to set up this way. He didn't disappoint that said. What a bleak on imaginative game plan? You know. Maybe I'm the idiot coming on here. Complaining about what I and everyone else who's watched him for the last decade. saw coming down the tracks. This is what you're gonNA get with from him against everybody except except the absolute wreck on we should just get on with it. Maybe I should stop complaining. Then you need to tell me. What is the right way to play against this Liverpool team? Because they're beating everybody Marino sets up into defensive style. He didn't play one point. Is that's up in defensive style against them for one half he concedes just one goal and then like you just said with your own words he had half time he's and then changes things and they get themselves back into the game. So what is the reason that everyone is doing at the acting from position position of look. I'm I'm telling you what you have is not good enough. We don't have Harry can apart. From the fact they went to a Champions League final. Got Two champions apposite. Finally Without Harry can you don't have. There's no other way what he says you is. There's no other way this can be you. Adjust your expectations nations accordingly and at the end. We've got a tweet like this from from Brandon. Who seems like a lovely guy I must say the game against Liverpool was the first time I saw a proper Marino performance? uh-huh Tonga is the future of this back link. Thought he did well but he was playing as the second of two fullbacks in the site right Sanchez played arguably his best game in a spur short. I thought I'll I'll read was good as well Even though we came up empty there are a lot of positives to take away on honesty. Honesty I don't see them. It's going to be against the big sides and it just seems just seem so wrong from from what spurs where beforehand which was oppressing team a team that tried to get on the phone even if it lost. But I'm telling you they haven't been that in two years. They weren't that under Patino either either. And this is the same squad and you can brush aside Harry Kane not being there that matters Tangy and Dunblane not being there matters even Ben Davies playing ten ten Ganga because they have no choices Ben Davies not being there matters Mussa Soco not being there matters anyhow any hangs with Liverpool one nil where they have to legitimate scoring chances in the last twenty twenty minutes and people are still finding reasons to hate him. And that's what I'm saying is people are not judging him fairly. They're playing against the team and Liverpool that are crushing everyone but he hangs with them and nearly beats them at the end and we still want to do it. Andrew it was clear from early on that Liverpool weren't quite and yet nothing changed. Nothing changed until it was clear. You're from early on Liverpool weren't added. You could sorry taught them how to chances in the early stages one from a turnover from Henderson. The wasn't the fluidity in that midfield whatsoever. In fact in the second half Liverpool's still had all the ball and kept giving it away. It was an absolute travesty. Not something to be praised. The Tottenham didn't equalize. This is what I was sorry. Andrew twenty-seven percent from Jonathan Lou Ceylon young men are best attacking player did not have a single torch in the Liverpool half between thirty art minute and the sixtieth minute none of which would stop Marino attempting to spend the basic poverty of ambition. Assam Genius Master Plan. If we tried to play the way we did Marino. When you say in the last twenty minutes from the beginning I think we will collapse because the players are not used to playing in this style and they are not adopted we did the maximum we could do and unfortunately wii believe to be the case? I believe more in your team than you do. Well maybe that's true but I've also watched my team more than you have and I've seen them for two years now play like like that at a certain point. How many times can you see them? Play Competition of Liverpool's caliber and play this way. And you're going to get the next time I mean this is what is it. Four your window to nine league games now you know. It's not just against Liverpool. You're going away to Norwich and your and your drawing you know. The manager was brought into Duke something Andrew and he's not doing it and I don't believe will get any better and for what it's worth to like for this continued criticism they're not trying to. They actually outshot Liverpool in this game. Absolutely yeah so then. How can we argue both ways that you know he does not? He's not trying to win looking out shooting them in the process. Andrew Andrew what you and I know you have to watch the Games. Yes and you can't just go onto dry stat and you're not gonNA. You're not going to say to me watching that full ninety minutes. That oh shots. Equal Spurs dominance and that ties. Is it what we saw on the field. It absolutely does. I just think it's not fair for us. To Watch. Liverpool Rollover Everyone Tottenham being what they've been for a year and a half come into that game and then US criticize them for playing defensive style and trying to score goals on a counter. What anybody else would like to? I think. Going back to Brennan's too Brendan's Suite at the Classic Marino performance. I mean a classic Marino performance was When KLOPP went there to Old Trafford in the spring of twenty eighteen when Liverpool were were rolling at that time into the Champions League and we were beginning to see the genesis? The team right now mostly lower scoring all these goals on. He stopped them playing any one two nil. It's just diminishing returns as we saw united he would something will go wrong in night and he would say it was still go performance in what we tried to do in all this I just. I don't think it's going to work here. Andrew over for his style of play. And you you don't have to face Liverpool every week. But I just when when he doesn't get the results like he didn't against Norwich like you almost didn't against Brighton. When you when those things start to happen like you heard the Tottenham Crow yesterday? Yeah I mean from about the thirtieth minute like screaming at the team to do anything other than just sit back six four zero that either me or you could have come there is i. I I believe that there is clear. goalpost moving with him like we are. We are reshaping the boundaries for how we can find ways nowhere to size and he has. I know I'm saying to find ways to criticize the things he does. He gets there all. Well now it's Marino. He's never gonNA play young players well. He just gave a youth player his debut against Liverpool yesterday. But nobody's going to praise him for that instead they're going to praise them for being too negative. I think you could have had the classic marie-noelle job with the Los Altos School. The I mean I don't know how he missed. And it would have been one mourn and Tottenham fans will be buying what he said. No one is saying the things that they're saying about Marino today. If Lasalle so scores that goal or if son score I I I I. I couldn't have watched that game people with annual their opinion. I'm telling you people will finish their goals. Entrance to one to Tottenham. People are taught all classic Marino. Job What he does. They defended against the best attacking team in the world. Then he found a way to score two goals. It's a brilliant Marino performance. But these guys they didn't convert their chances but again it goes back to what I'm saying. He's not doing what he used to do. And I mean we saw it at United as well and it's followed through and look I don't know what else to say. I just know. Oh already do you feel good about where this team is. No but I didn't feel good about where they were six months ago either and feel good about the direction in which the manager can you see things that he's doing when we think not yet and what are the. What did I told you for every week? The last month that people have started making their judgments about Marino before he's even had a January transfer window before he said even had a full week until this week this was his first full week without mid week matches for him to be. You know getting his team. Ready for late He needs more than three months than to. How long has it actually actually been three months? Three months take taken over. Two months has taken them. It's taken a maximum. Two Games to make spurs look exactly like Manchester United towards the end of his tenure. But yeah they weren't coming from a place of strength. I don't understand how people believed that. No things were the same exact team that we'll have a couple of months ago and team that we have now and like everything was going to be completely. He advanced them into the knockout stage of the Champions League and he brought them back into the race for top so the the only way they can be is what they are. No there can be no other way you know. But I'm just like I'm saying more than two months of him being there to find out what they can i. Just you're making a judgment. After Liverpool after a Tottenham Liverpool game. This is Jewish. Madonna is a goal that you're right everyone. Everyone has judgments on having to having to watch the Brighton. Game where Spurs fans got upset and. That's another thing. He's brilliant at like he kind of just. He has a way of uniting the fan base behind. What I don't believe is anything anything watch and the performs against Brighton? I remember I tweeted. I can't watch spurs anymore like I'll have to give this a swerve this dreadful and you know people the jump on you for what you mentioned before about Lasalle so not playing like this is now a narrative that's exploded out of nowhere. Everybody thought Christian Erickson Eriksson should be getting meaningful minutes and now we saw him play games. Then who who's the guy that should be playing Ericsson's to Erickson's credit. He played one of the most prescience passes of the entire game. He bad yesterday or was he playing for most of the game in this like deep lying defensive role with everybody else backs to the wall kind of job I mean he's not GonNa Thrive in that position. Anyway it was. That team was never said up to be any good. And it's not either or you can play on him together and Ben onto saying that. Who's WHO's The guy that Lasalle says playing over and we'll see it now? He's going to go into the starting eleven now because he had a good twenty minutes that he came on. And so they're gonNA they're gonNA see where that goes but like is he doing i. I would be surprised if he didn't start playing more. Certainly I thought he thought he came on and played well. We thought the same about Valium and we don't know he's heard well. I mean that's what we heard from him but Marino will kind of intimated that he wanted him to play more regardless. Or you know we don't know where we are with this guy for marinas frustrate within dominate. Because he wants him to be playing and this guy can't stay healthy and that is frustrating to a new manager. WHO's trying to figure out what his team is in dumbly would be perfect for this team? A defensive midfielder who pushed the play forward forward. They don't have that now so they're gonNA make the top four no. I felt that way for a while. Now I don't see a top four side when I watched them play. I thought I don't put that all on him. I thought in the second half and I was exchanging texts with a friend of mine who is a higher coordinator profound but will never ever be afraid to text back and say when they're when we're not we're not up to it and he's like we need to get out of this somehow. We were absolutely gassed. I that was that was outside of. There's actually a couple of moments against uaw-ford where it were always worried. Were offered Chaddesden scored but the chances two chances in particular that Spurs Car Cardis Open. I was like that's the thing with Liverpool. Is I think now. They're they're reputation has become more important than their actual performance. And by that I mean like with Tottenham in the the first half of this game teams are now entering games against Liverpool and submitting just expecting in some ways expecting the worst and teams are. I mean look you can probably count on a couple of hands the teams that have gone at Liverpool in the League. And come away victorious. Aureus I mean how many. How many times has that happened over the last two years any once? Manchester teams teams who've given to decided to really go at them and one doing doing it bombing. It's probably lost any games so it's probably more times at team so what I'm saying is it's probably more times in the last two years. That teams have gone at Liverpool and gotten utterly embarrassed again. Yeah but if you look at the run the run of the last few games android I mean Liverpool have had ten one. Nil draws are sorry one new throws when the wins over the over. The course of the season they blew the second place team Leicester Away but if you look at the last one games who else did they blow away. Nobody a lot of teams have been in it right to the end including Blackford at home. Oh so well yeah I mean that look. That's a sign of a great team. We say sometimes that they're able to not always have and they continue to win. It is a sign though that it's is not exactly like they've had it their own way. Look them away at villa where they had to get it right at the death and that is where you come back to you. Look at the spurs than you think they should have add more go. It's it's really that simple again. We're GONNA WE'RE GONNA disagree. Sad forty five minutes of playing defensive of against the world's best team to me is not an egregious error reassess at halftime came out more attacking. I just don't I just don't understand why that's unusual. The people hate him decided. Yeah but once upon a time there was he had this thing about him where he could sit in a little block and then he would cut you open open and where was it but I also heard this. Also he didn't have a center for. Yeah he's he doesn't have those players but again even even rash for he was able to do something with Cochran rash for that day against KLOPP and get the goals any needed. I different Liverpool today. It's the best team in the world and it's not close okay. So all right. Well I'm not trying to convince you I didn't realize I actually thought we'd have. I thought you'd be a little bit closer to me and how I saw the gamble. No I'm I'm just not ready. Look here's what I'll say like because I know the majority agree with you on this like I said I wouldn't think so the way people feel about Marino I soon I see the things people are saying about him. I've just grown. I feel like this is just too reactionary for me to hate this guy so early on his and I asked you to you do one thing stop seeing hate. Hit The guy that is ridiculous. I in fact his Internet version of his team. I absolutely love it. I'm saying he's been the subject subject of mockery for a for a while. And you know what I said myself. It's being unfair. But we his his just his attitude towards the game now is not in sync with the trends of the game right now and so what. If he's noticing some people say well it. The fact is the problem with him. Be Noticing. Because it's not working anymore and here's what I will say if there is a day then when I agree with that I will say that lay on I will not just universally love him or however it is that I I don't I don't but I'm just saying that like this amount of time coming off of this game against that opponent like it just felt like I I read. Maybe it's because I read Nick Miller's piece at ESPN NFC where he just crushes him for decisions made in this game against Liverpool. And like I just feel like nick. This guy has been there for such a short amount of time. And you want to wait until he's played a team. Maybe as good as any primarily team we've ever seen potentially and you WanNa wait for that moment to crushingly I think he has failed with Tottenham. I will say it but I just don't believe that it's fair to say that yet. What I'm seeing the Games when way is on a meeting people who Andrew Drew Games before this were calling were saying this is this is late stage Marino already? Okay we gotta move all right. We'll move on to Manchester Chester city. And really there's not a ton to say about when Manchester City beats up on Asamoah when six one. There's a bit in the mail bag. We gotta discuss okay The the only things I want to say about it well. I'll get Sergio Aguire on a SEC. Because he's he's incredible but also want to talk about Kevin Debrecen real quickly. Because I say all the time that there there are different types of assists not every assist is created equal and he in my mind continues to be the king of the true goal scoring assist. Do you handle the one ball. He Played Gabriel J. Zeus were all Jay Z's has to do is just walk into it and put it in the net. I feel like no one. Does it more than Debrecen. He's is incredible at it. And it's it's really really fun to watch when he was the ball to the back post right right hand technically across. But I think it's a new type across. He saw aw accurate coaches and in the past and even managers who go on. TV Andrew would say he's done well. He's just drilled it into that corridor of uncertainty between goalkeeper and last defender put. It seems much more. It seems less heat and hope than in previous generations. It's like he's actually actively picking someone out any the as. Oh Yeah but there's degree of difficulty and the the regularity which with which he does. It is just stunning and today I mean the weekend was set up for him. Yesterday was set up from to go wild and he didn't he didn't know he was great but really it was raptured into heaven. I've heard people say that before But really the story of this game is well. The Positive Story of this game is Sergio. Aguayo hat trick. He now becomes the Primer League's all-time foreign born player liar In terms of goals scored passing and now causing people to start debating whether or not he is the greatest striker in the history of the League. I won't say the whole first division but will say in the primarily era. Yeah and you know his numbers on his level of consistency over a number of seasons. Means if you're being fair gets in ahead of of Luis Suarez or someone of that and I have no qualms without whatsoever now now. It was interesting I read Mark Ogden. who was kind of saying well? He doesn't get the credit he deserved. And we've talked about that before. He's only made one the EP l.. All eleven and that wasn't until twenty eighteen I mean. How many great years did you have before that? Right and Marikina goes the angle of you know. We'll why is this the case he's he he wrote. This does not seek publicity or use the media to his advantage. I'm playing for city. has also impacted on a state has beyond the United Liverpool and Arsenal Are Much bigger clubs on a global scale and city and Kamar Command far greater media. Attention the also fire deeper reservoirs of supporters who help raise the profile of their star players. It's so true. I mean if you're looking at the clubs in the top flight right now. They're Arsenal Manchester. United unlivable historically with deep fan bases around the world and that does make a difference but also I think from my point of view why I think of Anri. I'll think of shearer before him is because with the city he project we're all the money came in there. Was this totally unfair. In my view view of well they paid all this money. He's doing what he's supposed to do I. I don't think it's your right but it's wrong for me to think that way. Not Wrong for me. To think city are what they are because of money but wrong for me to just expect him like it shouldn't diminish his talent or ability but I think you're right in that that perception exists and it's why he doesn't necessarily receive the athletes because has when when he slashed as a team. Do something well. I almost feel like there's a a general boredom with it because because like you said it's just what is expected expected. If you're going to do the things and put a lineup out there that they have. This is what you're supposed to be doing. Yeah and and and and any kind of thing or any kind of piece of art that's described as a project. Are you know some kind of long term plan is kind of diminished. It's not not organic. We don't think of it in the same way as we think of other teams and that's probably correct put. It should not take away from what Sergio Guero has done. There had been big transfers was coming to clubs with lots of money Mataya Kashmir and. I'm looking at you at early stage Chelsea and what happened there. Nothing Yeah Mark. Ogden said in that article that if Aguayo had done this while wearing read the perception of him would be completely different. That's fair ops. Probably true his goals per minute scores a goal in the premier league once every hundred six minutes that is of all players who have come through the League who have scored at least twenty goals that is by far by far the best scoring rate. Harry Kane is second at one hundred twenty one minutes per goal and then on one hundred twenty two. He still has eighty five odd to get close to shearer. Well yes that's I mean what's that that's another another three seasons worth. He's going to be thirty four. We'll catch what is Wayne Rooney at two eight zero eight Andy Cole. At one eight seven. So he's going on Lampert at one seventy seven so he's going to go past Andy Colour would imagine look Lampard for midfielder. Yeah right up yeah always arriving late. It's just it's the consistency from Guero more than twenty twenty goals in six of his eight seasons. So maybe there's a boredom with that too like he never has this kind of like forty goal season but he never sinks below like fifteen. He's just kind of like solid every single year. I think the fact you don't hear him speak very much at all. It is is a thing like Alan Shearer in the midst of the Blackburn days as Mike in front of his face after again Newcastle. The same a guero. Not so much. He leaves a kind of A. If you saw the the Amazon Prime Documentary Chan City. They cleaned up a closeted life. It's not he's not out in a boat that much. He certainly not like autumn. Mindy putting pictures in the Mur looked like a Halloween costume. Assume he thought he look Sean. Bruin put the the lyrics from crazy town. Coal Milady Qom Qom Malate sock. Because he didn't look like a guy from crazy Yeah let's stay with this game for sack because I know you've had some thoughts on Danny drink water. I was monitoring your twitter account or the show's account as this game was transpired. Inspired both okay. It seemed like you WanNa get some things off your chest about them but I I feel bad for him first of all because the the first three goals that ushered the people out of Villa Park were you know he was at fault. You could pick fought with them in nearly all of them and in one of them he registered an assist. I think it was Myers. His second goal where where you try to turn in the box look. was anybody going to go in there. And Stop City in that form. Maybe not but just that Dean Smith Myth. You know his comments. This isn't a gamble. How can you expect a guy who has not played any minutes in almost two years to come in and and make an impact against a downhill city is just oh my God? I mean everyone saw this coming a couldn't believe when he was starting now again. What what options did did they really have? Not a ton but even still the way he said it up Connor Horon not the most defensive of midfielders and drink drinkwater beside each other screening. Back four and trying to stay compact no and we know the results were simply what was jarring was him trying to track Brana. You'll gassed debris with breezing by him and it just goes to show his lack of games. I mean things are getting kind of hot and hot and steamy therefore Dean Smith at the park Some other quick hits before we take a quick break here for Arsenal more or frustration. Another one one that they might have been fortunate to have any play down a man for in the end. Yeah roughly a the third almost half an hour but they were very good for the first half Andrew. They scored a excellent goal through Obama Yang and then should follow it up with a goal from Nicholas Pat Bay but he he had a bad. I told when he told me two things. Both you mentioned both just now that I wanted to mention you see the for the goal that Arsenal scored and like I can just. I'm not an an arsenal fan. But it's in moments like that where you can get in their head 'cause like that is the brand of soccer that I feel like they believe. They should be playing consist of like what they were in those Bergkamp on three years and just when van was at his best like it was it was great. It looked easy on the eye. And so like you can just sense the frustration creation of. Why can't we bottle that? Why can't we do that? More often. I guess it's just simply that they don't like anyone can bus that out. I guess every once in a while but they don't don't have consistent talent to be able to know I guess their managers trying to get them back to that. If Pepe doesn't take such a heavy I think he scores a low with ways. Being the season you're not guaranteed lead of that no but he's there is a maddening element to him. Yeah and you can tell your right like it's sometimes. I hope this doesn't come across too unfair. I see what Saudi-omani is now and he's he's maybe a top three player in the world but I try to remember to what he was like three or four years ago and I feel like he had a little bit of that. You're likely you used to call it all the time. You said he was the best most frustrating striker in the league. And it's not that long ago it's eight fifteen months ago. You said that all right maybe and I feel like you know pepe as a lot younger But you know there. People are going to get frustrated with now when they see stuff like that happened. But I'm telling you like. He does a lot of the hard work. It's the end that he just can't seem to get right. If I were arsenal I would stay with it. Stay with it. Fans tried to be patient with him. He's young he's raw but you can tell that like he'll figure it out at some point I really. I really do believe that when he does. I really think he can be a tremendous player but the red card for a bum Yang. I thought it was right Yeah and people are making parallels between that and the Robertson Tackle on Tonga which also listen could have been could have been but you have to see the difference. Difference between the two whereas Obama's tracking him he can see him Robertson. Takes a heavy touch on. Wins the ball and then goes follows through now look letter the law. That's a problem but I I think there was more malevolence in what Obama Yanked. I mean if we want to put them into tiers of Red Cards yes bombing is is probably more of a sure thing but like players like. I don't think taking a heavy touch should be. You should be rewarded with. Not Getting he nips and then gets the ball right which which proves to me again. Intent doesn't matter and look if you WanNa say it was a card. Yeah okay but I don't. It was a follow through anti-gang As opposed to tracking him seeing him and then just hacking him like Obama did also one other thing from this arsenal game. We have Louise. I'm not saying like can I be fair before you begin what you're going to say I hate cutting across it blah. Yeah you saw him step into Midfield Them Ping that pass into begin the move for gold. We saw another chance earlier on where he plays a lovely ball over the top. That puts I think it was Pat Barrack Obama Yang in and he plays collapse snatching and they have a chance or whatever like he he was doing good creative things but they needed David Luiz things like it was his Leroy Jenkins moment like or have we got that drop. I don't know but like if you've never sure people have seen it it's like a fifteen year old reference awesome. I'd never known it until you told me. Yeah but like you know. We're setting up a set piece. The game is tight like people are getting into position and then he just like up steps Leroy Jenkins not. Don't worry everyone. I got this any fires. One forty yards over the net into the Standards Laureus because it never had a hope it was rising all all the time and it was just like everyone screaming Yay and he turns onto. It's fine. It's fine what are you doing like from that distance now. He's hit some some really good free kicks from decent distances. He did one at Anfield. He did one for Brazil against Colombia. I think in a corporate America or World Cup car remember which but put. That was well that must have been sixty fifty five year. If you're going to do that if it goes right then you just the goal of the year but when it goes wrong and you've tried it you're GonNa get made fun of especially when it's that bad. NBC Did a great job. They just tweeted out that free kick. It was perfect. It's everything Let's see Chelsea in the united. They each grab must needed wins Didn't see the Chelsea game but presuming. It was fairly comprehensive in that Burnley. Were kind of bad again. I actually didn't see that game either. I'm not GonNa lie but what we should probably not out of. That bunch was the United Game America's Rash Andrew Brace to take his league tallied fourteen working so far. It's twenty two years of age. That was his two hundred appearance for united unbelievable. Yeah crazy he gets the quicker than Cristiano Renaldo. Oh and Wayne Rooney but still ranks behind Ryan Giggs George Best and Norman whiteside but that's great company to be. Yeah and you wonder now if this young player pipeline will continue because Mason Greenwood starting to look more and more comfortable I I keep saying that someone along the line manager if if things go as expected expected with Greenwood and Rochford on Williams saw indeed the signing from Swazi. Whose name escapes me right now? James James. Why did that but if things go the way they should go for those players another manager is going to get the benefit of those players and won't be social but he should get the credit for bringing them through Yeah he's given these guys chances. I don't know who that other manager is going to be. There's when I was going to bring this up when we talk about Spain Spain but if we're talking about possible united managers now just say that. There's weird stories out of Barcelona now. We're just like behind the managers back. Other managers US are being approached by one particular. Why Javi though apart from being is managing currently and he's a Barcelona legend attire? Well Yeah but I'm saying put those like he's probably being much the way that maybe Franklin Park was being groomed to one day be Chelsea's manager like it's not crazy to think that a club legend legs Avi share method. But like but then I also read. Pacino was approached by Barcelona which would be supremely interesting after he the manager Spagnolo and said never he would never manage Barcelona but I don't know if football's like that though. Yeah yeah football life. They say makes separates out of all of us Let's see two other things the good and the bad right now in the lower half of the table what is going on with Southampton is truly impressive of And it is. I think you have to. You mentioned this and I would echo it that You really have to give some props to the the board at that club for staying with. Hasn't who it all through the disastrous nine nil threw a terrible start to the season and seeing it through and now they go back the team that beat them nine nil they come back around and beat that team and I'm sure this felt particularly good for them. Yeah Hasenhuttl said to BBC Radio Five. Live that the neal was was a big chance to do everything different and finding a way to get back to our fundamental is our philosophy to away of playing. That is really nice to watch so so he kind of looks at it as a fresh start a blank sheet after nine. There's no lower you can go. And obviously the team bought into that He spoke about Danny ings as well and he said that he's changed. The way plays not common deep as much and he's operating off the shoulder which you can totally see and that's what works. It's best from arriving into the box onto the ball. As opposed to dropping off and getting it and look at the way scored the winner that Ronin in on putting it between sh Michael's legs away away to get torch. You GotTa Give Credit Credit to the board on Housing Hotel because that is not what boards usually do after nine new no no Oh and he. He did acknowledge that in his interview. Like not too many people get a second chance after nine. No but clearly they saw and they were paying attention to what was happening at the club so credit to them because It's going well there however also on the South Coast Bournemouth. It is not and this is now. This is now truly become worrisome. Worrisome after really they just get torn to pieces by WOFFORD which can't happen to any club let alone one that coming into the season pass seasons we think somewhat highly of born with now four points for a possible thirty three over the last eleven matches and kind of the thinkable. Because Eddie how is like an institution there He's a God with that club and like there's murmurings now that maybe it's over for him. I would tell you that that would be a mistake. I think so too but I do think that there was something in in his post-match Conference press conference that worried me too. They talked about. Well Eddie what do you think. The turning point was and he goes the first goal which was in the second half off and it was the young goalkeeper travers. Playing out getting it back then shanking. It Watt for pressing and getting and getting a goal out of it which which Wofford did well all day long and fans are just shouting behind not anybody in particular but shouting at the team to stop playing from the back. And how was asked about voted. And he said I'm paraphrasing here. No so please. Don't he said How's post-match comments He more or less said they were punished for playing the way they think is right which sounded just so pompous to me. No mean you we have talked about this ad nauseam and we agree one of our rare moments of agreement. You do it when it's on no not every time you've got to read the room and if they're gonNA plan this way it doesn't matter. I really believe there will be a time down the road when we look back on this era era and laugh about the playing out from the back all the time and look. I get that certain teams can do it. Yes Manchester City can do it the US men's national team can't can't Bournemouth probably can't I respect the want to try but yes there are like yes. Pick and choose your moment. You can't do it all the time. These players are not good enough to be able to do that. And I. I've said it all the time about playing off from the back. If you make a mistake like playing the ball long somewhere in midfield like you can afford to make a mistake somewhere else but if you make one mistake playing out from the back you're immediately up against it but you should also not do it as a robotic motion. You should read where the pressure is almost like a quarterback if you're the goalkeeper putting that ball down read where the coverage is and I guess it's a lot to ask of a very young goalkeeper to do the one thing And I know you you find this interesting Sarah Winterburn on football three six five. She talks about the really bad transfers of eighty. How over the past eighteen months and boy dominic Solanki hasn't scored jarred Naib wasn't even the matchday squad not injured at the weekend and expecting them to be good even they never really showed it at Liverpool? Jefferson Laura. She doesn't mention but I- mentioning him. Harry Wilson part from free kicks as being good from open play. I don't think so callum Wilson and hasn't scored from September at Ryan Frazier's drop off like tank Born with last year you think Callum Wilson Ryan Frazier. Were two huge pieces. That have David is injured. Yes is it. Any wonder during the hasn't played wants the whole season. I don't think which y yeah and he was kind of a revelation for them last year. Too So yeah there. It's it you're right. Ah You look at all that and it shouldn't necessarily shocking that they're in this predicament. I'll take a very quick break when we get back. We're GONNA talk about a couple of things happening in Spain while I guess they didn't really happen in Spain aimed but they involve. Spanish teams will do that. We gotTA mailbag quick what to watch for. Don't go anywhere. People pass in the moment is some Mason to reward them sync you on. We need to be really now for this game Sunday and then to prepare the final autumn. I want your banking mentors for me for them the principles that will keep for the rest of my career that I cannot. I cannot change one of these principles opposes. I don't like to talk me elegant because what I'm saying is true. I'm it'll be champion so I'm not one one of the bottle and I think I'm a special. You had to hear that again. You I thought you did a great job. I'm I'm we're still in the midst of that succession. Some of those words are quite quite haunting. Look arrogant we know who he is. I I want I. I feel bad about the opening to the PODCAST. So Do I. I don't mean I don't mean to do sometimes berating you and it's not just you know well. I don't need your pity and sympathy Fi. Either I mean I. I don't feel bad for feeling of you know I. I've said it for we don't have to rehash it but like I'm just I'm just GonNa wait until I'm ready to judge him Let's see Spain I want to talk about the The Super Copa The Washington span no it was in Saudi Arabia And the the format of this has now changed a little bit the top two from Copa Del Rey facing the top two from La Liga With caveats depending like Real Madrid finished third. But we're still able to be included because Barcelona were runners up in Copa Del Rey. Tocaka CAF champions it is leave heels a bit like this is another one of those things that falls into the category that we so often talk about of Tanf a little too much football football but still this was this was a rubbish game. That was enthralling rubbish which I think is it became interesting. It took about one hundred and seventeen minutes but it became truly interesting when Alvorada was in on goal one on one with the keeper and he was taken down From from Federico Valverde and who was obviously obviously red-carded and ended up going to penalties as it seems all games of consequence quince between Real Madrid and athletic home and dread do and as those games have turned out in the past. Real Madrid. Do win it in penalties for one. Sergio Ramos getting the winning penalty. But all the talk afterwards was about Out this foul this red card on Valverde I'll just say in fairness to him. Even he'd feel great about what he did he said. I've apologized. which is to Murata? It's not good to do what I did but I didn't have any other option. I'm happy to win the trophy but I'm left feeling bad about that Maybe not shocking Diego. Semi Oni was actually. Okay with how played out not not a shock. At all right vow he said Verde won the final. It was the most important piece of play. It was probably going to be a goal. I told him that he did we had to do at that moment. I don't think it was going to be a gold because I look for the verdict. Couldn't have known this especially from his angle but murata rises he's about to be hacked. Act takes the most awful touch the ball flies right ahead. And if he if Valverde's taken out of the picture and doesn't make that tackle oppose rolling right back to courtois. Aw I think actually Velvet Murata favor the idea of the Faldo why he did it. Because some people are upset I saw what was the The publication was. As or somebody one of the public sports websites or something Refused to give him man of the match for doing what he did because they thought I guess it was so against the idea of what the sport is about which may be true however this is a show where you and I both sat here and had no problem with like the way. Portugal Riggle played against France and the European Championship final. You do sometimes like the job is not to be pleasing on the I. Sometimes the job is just to do what you have to do to win. Especially especially in one hundred and seventeenth minute of cup and I guess we went through a a period of football where we didn't see money of the cynical challenges but this was an epidemic emiko called the professional foul right through the nineteen eighties and into the nineteen ninety world. Cup and football was what are we going to do. It's ruining the game so when you see it rare Ted again you uh-huh well it's carded now. I mean like you know even ones that weren't like this. You still get a yellow card if it's one that occurs a counterattack like it's not. I wouldn't say it's an epidemic the way maybe it was. No it isn't but it's just it's it's still common. I mean you still see. I'd say once a game somebody does something cynical in the middle of the park but this was an extreme circumstance and I was generally fine with it so I'm watching by the way trippy. The only athletic player to convert his penalty. If I told you eighteen months ago Karen trippy would be our trivia. Rather would be in Spain. Yeah we get killed for saying his name that way. I know I can't help it. I don't know well we just give it a little bit of probably were originally came from Normandy in France for the trip but anyways If I told you he would be scoring the only penalty for lead against trail Madrid in the Spanish League Cup final in Saudi Arabia. You would not believe me. Nah I saw a couple of things about him on spurs dispersed twitter. And I think in the end like people say like look at the situation for Tottenham at fullback and look at he's doing right now at Athletico Madrid and and I think a couple of things can be true on that Just because he's playing well now doesn't change history. He was not playing well in the in the wake of the World Cup We had had season. He was not playing well for Tottenham so like you know did spurs give up on them too quickly given that they didn't really have much behind him at that position maybe but but it doesn't change what history was and I think they thought we can get rid of him and maybe Walker Peters or somebody will step in and be ready to go and it hasn't turned out that way yes they probably are regretting it now. I was sat beside a Kansas City chiefs fan so they were switching the TV's in the Blackhawks Byron Brooklyn. And I'm watching the end of the Super Supercopa but I'm also keeping half an eye on what was turning out to be a very interesting first half of the AFC divisional game check this. Kansas City chiefs fan turns to me and he goes he split. He just looks at me on the sideline black garb and whatever's going on with his hair these days and he goes. Hey is that Tom waits musician and I thought what does Tom Waits when you have to remind what he looks like. Oh my God uncanny eights seriously. Tom Waits Nice. Diego semi only see for shallow shot for ever been on. This podcast is Tom. Yeah But yeah so Real Madrid do do win this sets up. I don't know how much you Wanna read into the winner of this. What it means for the rest of the season But I would say that. Barcelona are now with out Lewis Wires for the next four months after he had to undergo knee surgery. So it kind of I mean if Barcelona truly are Leo Messi or bust. I'd be a little bit worried. I think that like the time is now for agreement. He's had a chance to acclimate but Suarez his out and they paid a lot of money for him. And so like they need to St- I think if there was a grace period which I think is it's fair Alright but kinda thrust into the fire. Now that grace period is probably up more expensive trinkets are going to have to come to the fore. Yeah it's GONNA be interesting before laureates in the mail bag. I just WANNA quickly talk about the Brian. McBride stuff because that happened over the weekend. He's the general manager of soccer now among some of the highlights from from his press conference of SORTA like scanning back and forth between twitter accounts Brian McBride Talking about the job. He said this is from Jonathan. Tanner walled on twitter. McBride right says this is very much a job that requires me to be present build relationships to understand what's going on behind the scenes. I look forward to that experience and also getting to know each player in our player pool What's also important? He made a point of saying that part of his job responsibilities are very much Dual nationals and recruitment in that area. That's good yeah yeah I think that's you know. I think someone of his stature of his presence of his resume of his just American can good looks. You need a guy going in who is going to give a player. WHO's on the fence? You're saying we are best face forward. I think he well. They do think he is that though. And I don't mean I was GONNA say. Give them the hard sell. I don't mean that but you know explain lean why selecting the United States as your national team is is a good move. Yeah and in talking about some of that. Ernie Stewart actually said head that essentially it's important and good for McBride to be a public figure in his role as the US men's national team general manager. They do want him out there. the friendly face of US soccer. And he is that yeah and he was a great player both in England and certainly for the. US THEY'RE GOING TO I. I can see him. I don't mean to be cynical. But he'd be wheeled out for important kind of showy events he's GonNa be front and center and in that sense and Cordeiro and all the others will get on with the the the grizzly business of of of running a massive like that. I'm not going to be negative about. I don't know what is I. Don't know the one of the tweets I read from the scoff podcast. They were on the call and the guy said that he has no experience of being. GM am which he hasn't bought that he does have some business chops. So I'm not sure how that that world that wouldn't surprise. Asked me if he was more on a business side than a personnel side. I'd have to another thing. That they talked about was essentially aligning Sort of the youth team with the senior team To which I said wait. They haven't been doing that like so have different. Things have been happening at different levels of this program. We haven't been like in line with young players and senior level players throughout so young players could presumably slot right into the steaming. Where you what you should be doing if that's the case And then perhaps most importantly because people are wondering like sort of what has been intimated a little bit kind of what we were talking about. Is this just some sort of figure head. Is this like I. Such as putting the best face forward McBride said if I didn't think I could make an impact than I wouldn't be the right person and I shouldn't have taken the job The only thing I worry about here is too many cooks in the kitchen between bear. Halter McBride Ernie Stewart. Sorry busy his business management shops. Okay all right good. I'm sure that helps. In some way I don't know I don't have any outstanding interpersonal skills. which are going to be very important for this job? Also strategic thinker if you WANNA go to scoffed for that threat Pretty good. Yeah so look ah I don't I can't judge this yet. I don't think anyone really can. I don't know how long it will be. His contract. Runs through the two thousand twenty two World Cup if we are to qualify for it as. Jj looks at me before. I get an electric shock. I can't do that again. So yeah look we like him and I'm willing to give of him whatever chance That that I would say he deserves the are kate. MARGRAAFF has the similar position on the women's side and it does sound like Ernie Stewart said that she has kind of of more free reign on the women's side than what mcbride potentially has on the men's side which is a little bit interesting all very vague. Yeah it is. It is because because I really think that it's it's it's vague almost intentionally because it seems like they're going a much more collaborative route here where there will be multiple voices making decisions decisions and they trust mcbride enough to be one of those voices so who knows. I don't really have any huge judgment to pass on on something like that just yet except to say good for him I like him. I'm happy for him. Never works out. Try and get him on the pot.

Southern Sydney there have been a few small spot. Fires flared up but have been contained quickly. which is what you mentioned on your twitter find during findings on the show unfortunately an area an area all you hold dear to me got hit hard on New Year's Eve Lake CONJOLA? My my family and I have been going on for over thirty years as a holiday destination. Not only that is where the hell are. Champion celebrates retour. It's been pretty heartbreaking aching to see send us pictures of Jeez ruin after of the controller. So it's just it's just so awful and terrible and Yeah Yeah Matt. Graham who's been more successful in the premier league so far Christian Pulisic streaky. Success at Chelsea Armageddon Moran with consistent slow building successive Newcastle. Seems like you've answered that for Yourself Matt Thank you. I don't know which one do you value more. Thanks for your outstanding work. Math from the upper east side of New Jersey Willow politics has had his progress shunted by an injury so but I I thought to be honest which I thought was building nicely from the get golden not everybody. Nobody shared that view. He fell out the site for a month. Came back in and had a cameo against accent. I'm Kinda built from there. It's been really good. No He's been injured. I Moran has been asked to do things. Probably by Steve Bruce that he didn't do before and his main contributions Newcastle up until the last few weeks have been really really honest hard-working running an often. His final passers final ball. Is that down a bit. But he scored a brilliant goal at the weekend against wolves. He's he's a quality not player. I'd like to see him in a role that allows them to be more in the attacking passenger fee consistently. But maybe that's happening. Know under Steve. Bruce I don't know Both of them my gut would be say pulic. Yeah but I don't know if if it's a slam dunk Western. Here's more difficult to answer questions. Luke styles relatively straightforward question here but not a straightforward answer. Who is the worst player in your opinion and your opinion to be playing regular football in the premier league? Right now I think over the season I said it before with his showings by the way these are all top-class Athletes Roberto at West Ham. I don't understand like just so he did not look goalkeeper that was playing at the highest level. I'd have to look up his appearances. I mean has he made enough appearances. You think for us to say he's getting like regular what are the regular. I probably not. I'll have to look. I could be wrong. I did the fact. He's in Premier League team and has started as a replacement for or five Yankees crazy to me Based on what I've seen I feel bad saying this. I don't just want to be anti arsenal but like it's hard not to look at Mustafay and I've kind of been on the the Anti Greenwich Jacka trained for a while Mortgage Snyder land on at at Everton. Dominic Solanki aforementioned Jesse lingered trying to think of these are all regular enough teamers. I would think so Robert and South California so I tweeted out Verona Rona James Harden Horncastle. I retreated this Verona. Genoa will kick off fifteen minutes late because the lines of the penalty areas are wonky and need repainting Syria area in two thousand twenty and I just got it. Sounds familiar reminds me of Montreal. A couple of seasons by it was the Canadian. Darby the playoff game between Toronto Montreal. And this he's delayed a little over forty minutes. Robert said that it happened as we were recording the show and we commented on thread wreck because there was a guy out there with like a ruler. Yeah and string and and it was on tariffs was a pot of paint man. Yeah good times I'm Tony and Portland. It feels like you guys said if not now when for PS G.. But did you see. They're defending the three three draw with Monaco at the weekend. Monaco were very very good. But yikes to. PS G Monaco very good. I think it's important to know that and the Benita goal here was just phenomenal title to put them to one up in the first half a couple of forays into the box of this is how robust Moreno wants to play. This is fantastic. Here they come again. Baldi disguises. This this has been the hometown of quiets the parked Lebron's that's Phil. Shane and Gary Bailey. Early on Sports Phil was allowed to get his goal. Calling Nice Yeah yeah I I suppose if we're talk because when we say if not now when for PS es g we're kind of talking about them making a run in the champions. I'm not talking about what they do in League so yeah look in fairness to them They've they've given up thirteen goals all season in their league and three of those occurred yesterday. So it's not like I don't know if I could say that they've been just. It's like a consistent disaster in the back throughout the course of the season they got caught opened yesterday and a copy of the goals. But I guess what you would worry though is that that's set some kind of template yes Champions League opponents I think that was the point of what twenty s Mitch Car perhaps question for the podcast. who was worse hair who who was a worse hair dye job rather greenish Sergio? Guero any chance for longer mailbag discussion on the long standing odd presence of peroxide which is the substance that turns your hair blond in football Between those two one isn't peroxide. It's more just like a job. It's coloring highlights like if you English looks good. Well that's the thing is like if you had never seen Jack Release before and then you just saw him looking the way he looks with that. If you WANNA call it a dye job okay you probably you may not even know. I know that he had anything in his hair. You might just think that that is natural hair color Search Your Guerrero not not quite the same Now he's if you WanNa long read on on Peroxide. It's not that long. Actually there's a there's a piece on on Vice I remember this vividly the remaining team and at France Ninety eight it before if they said if they if they beat England and Columbia no small feat dade qualify other group. And if they if they won't both those games they would do something as a team. As a bonding exercise they dye their hair and so they all did but some of the players were saying how the people whoever did it for them. In France at the World Cup was just dreadful and their scouts were burned all some of them had bald patches and spots and it was okay for the guys with short hair but the guys with long are here it was like really noticeable and they drew their final group. Game with Zeke and the manager said it was like revenge from God for for being sold like pompous as to get something done like that but Paul Gascoyne at Euro Ninety six at some point men in their twenties not play football do that. They just bleach their hair. You did it. Yeah Yeah I was out here in America. Yep just put the bleach through them here. I don't know some people loved loved it and thought I look nice and other people thought it was some kind of a crime what I don't I'm not Oughta Fan and it's not a thing that I would probably due to my own hair. Finally Andrew got some very interesting feedback. I tweeted out. Is this ever okay. A A video of Aston Villa fans leaving in droves leaving Villa Park on the twentieth with minute of their hammering by Manchester City on the question I put out there was is is this okay like within the football fines and passionate and twenty eight. Th Minute and supporting your team is it. Oh No no not in the twenty eight th minute you said yes no. Yeah they're going out of the ground. Twenty eight forty two and they're streaming the exit. No it was interesting so unless they're trying to make some bigger point unless there's some kind of protest. Oh test or something like that okay. But if it's just purely of I can't be bothered with this anymore. So Eric tweets. She said my dad and I left a high school football game with the two minutes left and then we walked out of the parking lot on my team scored and one also as a former cheerleader. It really sucks to see people streaming out of the stadium for whatever reason like John Conte. Dante says it's not okay. Then we got a lot of what was I would call cleanup transactional stuff grit basin Jason. Bare said. I paid for the tickets. I can leave whenever I please group. No yeah you see. Of course you can but whether this put you on lower wrong fan is is. I think the question a lot of people were very very you know kind of it. I don't know if you WANNA lower rung long a fan but you just gotta own it if you then this history like you were talking about the Kansas City chiefs game before. I wonder if anyone left when they were down. Twenty four nothing. They then came back and won fifty one thirty one like if view left. Because you quit on your team then you gotta own that. I quit on this team that it has to be a learning experience and yet villain come back and win that game but like. I don't know that doesn't make you less of a fan but there's something about Keith. made the point How people interact with their clubs completely up to them? And I just said absolutely and I wouldn't dispute that but there are certain modes of behavior. That Harcourt finds engaging and that and in that context leaving after twenty five twenty. Eight minutes is verboten. I think that's too early. It is too early. Have you ever. What the earliest? You've left a game in discussed. I can't I can't actually think of time. I started to Ireland. Nil Food Germany six. Well I think it was six one in the end I sat through the whole of that.

You're in a confined environment. You kind of don't have anywhere to go. You are where you are and a woman is. It's like doing nail Polish on her fingers and the smell has now consumed the entire. What train car? She sat down near the Polish on the train. Like you know that smell smell. It's pungent right it's it's toxic. It's still struggle. Yeah and so not a big thing because I get that we're all in a rush and like we have to get stuff done where we caffeine. But I kind of was like really like you know that. This whole subway car or not. Subway was on the Metro North Train. I was like you know this whole train. Car like fumes just everywhere. We can't open a window you know. I don't know just a little thing I was like. Yeah we didn't need that know commute in. I mean the New York Doc city subway you can see people do all kind of ablutions they will you know. Cut Their nails. They will What's the other one I saw? Oh Yeah knows haired the guy with the northern tremor on the subway. You like though it's last subway. It's almost part of the character of the subway. Getting hit by shrapnel. Tore part is is almost like an experience on New York City subway with bring food on the subway. Okay right. I've never eaten on a subway. If you're in a rush Asia you've never grabbed a slice brought it downstairs. I got takeout and then I can tell you. I've never eaten food on the subway. That's interesting I might have had food with me but I never actually ate it there in front of everybody. Yeah curious to me. That is the right thing to do. I I think you might be right. I've seen people the entire Chinese in front. Like Oh my God it's also messy because you know people just like leave there you should guy with the chicken bones. uh-huh oh my God. He had a chicken book. I'm them and then into the mouth and give it kind of pulled every last resolve and then lick the fingers and go too much. Yeah let's see super-quick what to watch for. FA Cup replays on Tuesday Two forty five eastern time Newcastle Castle and Rockdale much Wilbur him of each another chance for cameo for him after he scored the equalizer in the say. Say the first leg. It's not really new legs. You have to win that. Yeah Yeah and then. Also Tuesday three or five Tottenham and Middlesbrough the return of woodgate and Robbie Keane to do well a new a changed white. Hart Land Is there any nostalgia in this in this game for you do look would get and Robbie Keane and think of early days. They they both have made like even Jonathan Woodgate in a relatively limited amount of time made a big impact. He scored the winner for them against Chelsea in. What was then the Carling Cup? Final at at Wembley in extra-time Magic Juande yeah and obviously Robbie Keane is kind of like a club. Favorite people love him. So you wouldn't mind well. Well I don't WANNA lose to them like I enjoy them. But I'm not willing to concede this because I like them. Yeah Yeah I always wondered how would get viewed at various clubs because he he was injured so often. Yeah I will say though Sears not better win this because their season to me is kind of now in that place where it's going to be defined by what they do in cups whether it be this one of the Champions League they camp out in the third round of this competition And then one. EPL game wanted to mention Still kind of a ways away. It's only Monday but this Sunday Monday. Just know everybody at eleven thirty. Am Eastern time. It's Liverpool and Manchester United at Anfield Yeah there's a massive Asif game it doesn't matter how liew go ahead. Are Ho fire backs United Fall. It's just such a big game if feel look I. I don't I don't know exactly what I think. Think of Manchester United. They're certainly not a great team. I don't think they're a bad team But there are limited feels like there are limited opportunities for Liverpool will to slip up and lose that allu- have that elusive loss. Appear if you're someone who's ruth for the They've had a blind spot against united. Certainly away from home. I mean KLOPP has is not being good at Old Trafford. Certainly not in the League dot said it's Anfield. Yes so where. They use the expectations. Dr That united will be. That's the expectation anywhere beaten. Yeah I don't know who the opponent could be right now. That Liverpool could go up against were. That is not the expectation dictation Champions League included. There's no team that they'll be faced against in any competition where they'll be considered an underdog they lakers. I guess if they're playing basketball than yes that's what we're at. Are we in a better place than when we started the podcast. I'm by no God and I resent the question. Here's here's what I hate right now. I kinda hate talking about Tottenham because it's it's become there's plenty of listeners who were just love of never did but like it's just become such a force of negativity and so like that combined with just all the stuff that I'm seeing and like all the I don't know I feel like the discourse among within the on its own fan base has just become so divisive And it's just I don't know like they just become like frustrating when it was. We're not that far removed from when it was like one of my favorite things in life was talking about Tottenham and watching the team play now just like just feels like a chore. But that's where it's out with them and I'm sorry I don't mean to take it out on you. We just. We just happen to disagree. I'm about to offer offer the olive branch. What is the need to go and see one thousand nine hundred nineteen together possible? It's playing at a theater beside the nighthawk and packed slope where you can and I'm not GonNa go to your you can come on. That's not fair. That's not air heath food together and I was talking to someone about that recently. That does nothing for me. They Komo alongside Lloyd places I've been to those places before I don't know when I'm at a movie theater. You're right they do it as discreetly as they can but everyone knows when it's happening and when I'm in a movie theater I don't want like if there's a guy four rows away from me who just goes to SOS much check a text message let alone like that. Annoys you even the glow of his screen. Now I'm out of it. Don't don't break my immersion okay. I don't know where we hurting for like a two hour window where we couldn't have a full meal in front of us that badly CIGNA's need to exist. I totally get what you're saying but this place is so much fun like in the lead into the movie they don't they. Don't show you trailers. They've somebody's somebody's chopped up interesting pieces that pertained to the movie because in terms of What was it? I saw the last time I saw there. Oh Oh well for example. I'll take the The Dick Cheney movie from last year they had all these these reports parts and pieces from the TV from what seemed like forever ago. But it's only really like fifteen sixteen years ago and they spliced together and they and they they play pop culture moments from that era at the time. And it kind of sucked you into that. That's uncut you ready for the film and I thought you would like that you would to my neighborhood and you WanNa come to my neighborhood I'm trying to know what that would connecticut I'm trying to think though of like the actual time we'll be we'll go to We could go lower. East side is good movie. Cater donors hundreds of movie theaters. Can we go and see to get this weekend. Is that desperate to see that possible. What it's we'll find a time he'd be saying it's better than than you could have expected just won best picture at the Golden Globes and he won best director? Well this was fun man. We'll be back with you next week. I guess to look back at this Liverpool man. Something major happens over the next few days. I'll donate that we we put up the bats. Of course we'll hey do you.

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

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

How Man City Became Banned City

"It was a stunning development in the world of soccer on Friday Manchester City they are England's reigning Premier League champions and this is a real statement from European football's governing body. Uefa city are facing a two year ban from the flagship Champions League competition. I do Manchester City. One of the biggest and richest clubs in the world has been banned from the Champions League. Europe's most prestigious and lucrative club tournament. Today the Athletic Sam Louis joins us to break down the ban what it could mean for the future of the team and what's at stake for man cities controversial billionaire owner Sheikh Mansour. Offensively think well hold on a minute. Who are our motivations from wonder and the Athletic? I'm under skelter and I'm beat the Davidson. It's Tuesday February eighteenth and this is the lead. It felt like something great. There is something of emotion the past. Because you're not good. This isn't a story here. You'RE GONNA BE THE ATHLETE. It stays with you so sam. How big and how unprecedented is this ruling? It's so big. And it's so impressive in in the fact that we're talking about and the fact that you know news stations across the world. If I lied artem you know from Friday night on woods is because I think the size of of city or the clubs are being banned from the Champions League before and Galatasary Turkish slogan AC. Milan Daping Bam this while Icy Milan. This season banned from the Euroleague. I think it's probably the fact that it's Manchester City. And also the factor the other two mentioned we kinda bound for fallen foul of the rules and spending a bit too much but this one. This is more about the seat. This is a club with a long history since eighteen hundred ninety four. This club has been at the very core of a city. That's proud a city. This allowed a city. That's always stood out from the crowd. A club foot all of Manchester. But it hasn't historically been one of the top clubs in England. You know the the sort of long been seen as the second team in Manchester. Yes the modern era. The modern era in English. Football is the Premier League and Manchester United Hopping Kings. Becker again. Nobody will dramatically traveling ninety nine hundred nine. They won the double in two thousand and eight for a lot of years. Manchester City weren't in the premier league. And even when they were they. Were very much an also ran Kanda team. So you know that goes to show the fortunes but really everything changed in two thousand eight when he was purchased by new owner. Toss a little bit about. She commenced or After the show up in Minnesota a chain is a member of the Abu Dhabi royal family. He's the Deputy Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates. And he's the half brother of the current president of the United Arab Emirates. He sits on all kinds of borden bodies including the Emirates Investment Authority on the Supreme Petroleum. Council it sounds some Laaksonen over an Bolom say these worries love me collected. He owns the Abu Dhabi united. Which in two thousand and eight bought Manchester City and his mouth sprawled into not just Manchester City but New York City Melbourne city stakes in and China in. Uruguay gives you a bit of an idea of this guy and I suppose the the influence that he he's not regional and now beyond He's very much remained in the background at Man City. He's reputations being an option owner he's only ever been to one city game in did give an interview towards the star and it was very romantic. It was all very you know a football fan. I played a lot when I was younger. And Manchester City is the sleeping giant. And I'm very very excited about the possibility of turning things around and I think this is a great possibility for everyone all this kind of stuff but there are plenty of people who are skeptical of. Man's sewers motivations with this club and to be clear this is one of the most powerful men in the United Arab Emirates. A country with a terrible record of human rights abuses. Now imagine leaving your family behind to seek work in a foreign country driven away by poverty and desperation only to find that. When you get that you lose your job and if that's not bad enough. Imagine to not being paid for ten months being left in a ramshackle camp in the desert at the height of summer. Exactly what happened to thirty eight migrant workers in the United Arab Emirates and we're not pointing a finger directly at Sheikh Mansour here but there are plenty of people who say this guy is connected to a lot of bad things happening in the country and that his decision to purchase Manchester City was part of what human rights groups call a quote unquote sport washing campaign. Sam Can you explain that term sport washing the definition of Bates you to use a sporting event or an institution as a means for a country to improve its reputation particularly if as a poor record on human rights if you think back to the classic. Muhammad Ali fight the rumble in the jungle and Manila. These were these were events in Zaire in the Philippines in countries where there were human rights abuses. There were. There were stories of prisoners being kept below the ring you know in underground jails blow the ring and obviously without Dhabi the Mexican companies guitar that is bringing scenes sports exercise to human rights abuses allegedly taking place there with slave labor to build the stadiums also links to these countries with the war in Yemen former detainees. Say they'd rather die and go to hell then returned to the prison Mukalla in southern Yemen. They say they were held for months in the United Arab Emirates. Funded prisons hands tied and blindfolded. This is how far it goes in. The is all these she so after Sheikh Mansour. This highly controversial owner bought man city. The team went on a pretty massive spending spree. He has signed from Manchester City for thirty two million pounds at shots. British transfer record tebow. D- says cities offered him a future. Something united either. Couldn't or didn't want to design Vincent Company David Silva Yaya Toure. Sergio Guero some of the very best players in the world and then in twenty eleven. Two thousand twelve. You goal the last kick off the season to win the title on goal difference. I mean Manchester City fans. I think he's probably say have never denied and then after head coach. Pep Guardiola arrived in two thousand sixteen. This team started playing a level that we just hadn't seen before it's the Best Primer League team. We've ever seen this pure domination. Unlike I've ever witnessed before they broke records for home. Wins Away Wins. To-to Wins Gold schooled. They also unbelievable they also won the FA Cup and that was when we were talking about the nation but right around the time that Man City started winning trophies. There was this growing concern. About how much. Money billionaire owners were spending and so there was this new rule that was put into place. Can you briefly explain the financial fair play regulation effectively financial play as it is it restricts clubs from spending too much money if you make losses of more than thirty million euros over three seasons then you will have failed financial fair play? And that's when you can get these. Big fines only can be banned from the Champions League. So essentially teams can only spend as much money as they're bringing in. Yes exactly and so man. He got a slap on the wrist for violating this financial fair play regulation in Twenty Fourteen. But it seems like things really shifted in two thousand eighteen. When the German newspaper Der Spiegel published a really big story there was a lot of acting Manchester City which show top level of the club discussing the sponsorship arrangements. There was one discussing the hats on shipping. Eddie had sponsor the stadium sponsor. The shirt is the biggest positive as you can probably tell from the name. Anti had there is a link there to have we. W and one of these emails said the actually. This sponsorship was worth around sixty million in the books in the official books while they declared the UEFA only add to pay eight million out of their own pockets at the airline and you have to behave million other in pockets. The rest came out of shake my source that Abu Dhabi companies like ours well anti-satellite all of their sponsorship agreements with city that will worth however city stated in the official books always email showed that these sponsorship arrangements were not worth as much as city at the Clyde than for so basically you're paying for his own sponsorship deals so that it looked like the team was breaking even when they weren't and they could continue spending lots of money creative accounting. You could call it but definitely in violation of this rule Yes yes absolutely and so began an investigation. After this big they're Spiegel report and on Friday. They announced that Man City was banned from the Champions League for two years. What has been Nancy's response? Muncie response has it as as being the whole way through is basically to come out fighting and ultimately on Friday. What they said was. This was a flawed process by way for for announced in two thousand eighteen when they launched investigation will. They wanted to ban Manchester City. They had recommended a ban. And they've effectively. Muncie say they have now worked on that basis that Manchester City would get a ban. Come what may so. That's a in Manchester City. Now saying UEFA. His entire process has been flawed and they will go to the corporation for Paul to make that case. And when will we know the result of the appeal? Another another huge question. Another unknown by all accounts. This case has been likened to doping cases Olympic Games athletes who've been found guilty of doping offenses they to clear the name and they want to go to the Olympic. So it doesn't make any sense having the case drag all until October and missed it. So everybody's GonNa want clarity and not just Manchester City. You know if Manchester City are bound the team who finishes fifth in the Premier League which could be Sheffield United which would be a fairy tale. They qualify for the Champions League. Now that will change the club overnight. Jeffrey Dogwood Club entirely if they qualify for the Champions League so this needs to be done quickly and it will be done quickly it will be. There will be a date set quickly but I think it's so complex. I think there's so much the city could for lots of it might take cass with all the winning the world and all the desire to get this sorted out as soon as possible. It could drag on. What's been the reaction from Man City fans? Is there a feeling that they're being unfairly? Singled out absolutely absolutely. I would say there are a lot of fun so you think. Hold on a minute. Who are our owners while their motivations are they doing and hold on a minute you know? These emails do seem to pay in a bad light but everyone knows how it works with with twitter. These days I think the most the most vocal the reaction from on society funds has been yet this idea that as a witch hunt is out to get them. It's the same. Let's assume that this two year ban from Champions League stays how big of a blow is this to the team over the next couple of seasons. I mean I imagine you're going to have players who wants to leave and it's it's definitely going to be hard for this team to sign many more marquee players if they don't have the opportunity to play in the Champions League well it's interesting over the weekend off. The athletic scrambled a lot of top. Reuters to to find out these these kind of questions and a lot of the information that came back from sources close to the team and agents close to the team. Was that yet look? There will be some players even some of the the nicest players even some of the most payoff friendly players. You know they they were not wanNA stick around. I don't think it would also be on Fanta- speculate but Liberal Rossana was. The play was most likely to leave anyway. Devon Silva already announced his intention to leave anyway. He spent ten years city by the end of his contract. Contract runs out and it's almost as leave in. There's been speculation about Sergio Guero. Maybe maybe he would use this as an opportunity but on the other hand. You've actually got the strange step. The remarkable staff of one of the players agents said Rain Sterling's agent eighty ward has actually gone on the record. Say The rain certainly will be staying. Kevin Dubrow Anna. Probably the other star player on the same. He's kind of he's happy city and and this this isn't affected to him so it basically depends on the individual really and what's going to happen with PEP Guardiola. Is there any possibility that he will try to end his contract prematurely and Joining Different Club? No I don't think so. I mean that was always. There are always rumors anyway base based on the fact that they will have disappoint season in terms of the points up to Liverpool so people were putting two and two together speculate in the he would go. I mean I think I am Brahma. I say that the sources are choice most around Manchester City. The sources closest to him. They've always said he will stay. He will see his contract. At least which again that runs until summer. Two Thousand Twenty one. So there's another eighteen months on SAM. Is there any possibility that this is essentially a death sentence for the club that when all the dust settles that this club we'll go back to sort of meet the mediocre status that it had before this new owner came along hospitals old wrestling appeal? It'll wrestling appeal if they do missile in the Champions League and they do make these big losses than maybe they can't afford to keep his these champion saying that they do have and what about Sheik Mansoor. I mean we talked about this idea of using sports to extend influence and power and to distract people from human rights abuses. What does this ban mean for him? If part of the plan was we're going to boost the reputation of our region and our businesses by being associated with this great historic English club that wins trophies the manager and the best player if all of a sudden. It's no longer squeaky clean club. And all of a sudden it's a club which has got a bad reputation dot com defeats the whole object again into in the first place. So yeah it may get to the stage where they think everybody hates us. We into this business argue to reflect in the light of a great permanently club now. Now it's a club the we've kind of dragged down all right Sam. Thanks so much for joining us. Thank you very much pleasure to build. You can follow it. Sam Lease coverage of Manchester City at the lake. Dot Com. Here are some other stories. We're following at the LEAD NASCAR driver. Ryan Newman is in critical condition.

When talking about quarterback Mason Rudolph who was accused of using a racial slur towards browns defensive end myles Garrett in November so I fully support Mason Rudolph we as an organization fully supported. Mason Rudolph and to be quite honest with you. We weren't hacked off with what we saw this weekend. Not specifically for myles Garrett He's been in the lane that he's in but what was displayed by. Espn and that panel the way that the situation was presented. I don't think was fair to Mason Rudolph and that's why I'm here today. Tomlin was referring to an interview.

We're gonna go through the yields of the favorites in this interesting kind of odd stairs while for the big clubs looking to win the title but again again we'll get into liverpool game soon enough But everybody else robbie not chopsticks to chase him back or one nine. Let's stop i will chat about is a big game chelsea against month just city while i think man city you know kinda slow starting look kind of right for the first few weeks months of the season but all of a sudden robin this game against chelsea. You kinda go all those those Himself said it we. We've hit full of two seasons ago. Less pragmatic same kind of midfield setup. Same dominance same penetration saint finishing quality to be fair Burning from Woman cozy. I think is is a. We haven't really seen city per this season. We've seen them win games. We've seen him lose a few jill. Maybe we should seen them create chances. Maybe not as many as plentiful getting in the the pitch that we've seen over the last couple years and we've wounded is a bit more. Prompt matic is about to sit in midfield players who take a little bit attacking sweat away but what should chelsea not so. This was a huge game for both these teams up. Because i felt it was a game. The winner can kick the winner can so of Confident of confidence in to kick on them for the other is going to be a few questions you know. They both saw. It started the game at six and eight in the league. And i know you got some games. You'll him you know it's still a bit a way away from where you want to be so in the That manchester city women dominate. The game news. Peevish will be the little spouse that was like exhibition abbado If they took a coat with the goals was it was a Good chance maybe stealing foden Many could have been three full five or six It was it was back to that city with with with almost want no recognized. Sent food can probably being the most vocal Movement in a topic chelsea deal with defensive. Setup is definitely got stronger a little bit about as well And all of a sudden fear kept combat into the primarily but city. Cooking a gauge. If ron john we've talked a lot rav about missing. Sergio guero in jason game for this game calendar boina was the false nine. If there's one kind of part of the game. Where i thought was k- was him addition on him dropping into the midfield. Because you had guys in midfield rodrigue under the chelsea. Three coach mason so is kind of normally three three point menu. I've got him. I've bought him but with the coming in those well it makes outnumber them also by the way sterling unfil- voting came in as well general. Domani the area. I'm one st passing going on city and chelsea. Try to press a little bit. They didn't just sit back and then rip them apart with some british some penetrating. Footballs great finishing it. Okay go into one. Rob is Play by the way what professional. We've both spent a little bit of time with using the shooting year. Yes and i saw him over in. La spent a little bit of time with him watching l. Afc game lovely guy intelligence. Simple but isn't it isn't he. Does he go under the radar over. I'm gonna i'm gonna. I've got different Under appreciated play will too late but it could go into when i watched him play. I'm like i'm going to talk about him surpass for somebody else but is he under appreciated gone. I think maybe to to people outside of the football club be to the casual view. What she city doesn't catch the eye but in assisted plays where he can be holding play if he needs to. He can do the number right where he can get forward. I mean the tune in the finish was talk. Joe biden talking sterling. ask finish. And he's got that capability Yeah he's not headline. Grabber is not a guy who i think if you say namely cities he plays democratic bodies lists but i think it's important to focusing Nosy value and he's contractual Gotta get dylan it again. Because in in the dina's maybe the wto of debris in is where the shape took him a little bit different. Your might need that guy who can at times go full with Strong and stop the counter chucks. He could be a key key element in iran ryan in just highlighting how Important kobe and he's not davidge silver in the technical creative ability but Definitely influence this side it in a different manner so it's like the his abilities unfil- phones abilities combined silver. But you know. I ain't i stuff i want to bring up. What favorite this season robin and income ryan. Didn't you put your package together of gianluca. Correct i i thought it was really interesting. We've talked a lot about johnstone's mistakes. The potential liability agree. Now that the his game is so much less. Eras like like yeah. You feel. you'll package. Your trips was interesting because it showed him as a real leader. Yeah stiffer goes in the studio. And there's a john that i walked and he was talking in a different way. Really we do this. We got to believe about this. And we gotta stick together while this kind of different. So when soyoil i could you put together. Yeah israel amaze point. He's been is games. I mean kind of for him at once. He the clean sheets that we kinda made that story better. But i mean like gold. is immaterial to issue components in nature putting in france. And i'm gonna own my hand zero pm and said listen. I was a guy who was saying. Johnson is in. You've phil jones and confident. I had it convictions to say it because basically what it was trying to say in. Its own jake paul. Stay around phil fan on johnston's long enough and it'll give you an opportunity. He'll make mistake humid. There were times early. Policies is almost scattered is on shudder. Robbie earn effendi. Wasn't on the turnaround after site ahead is been dramatic. The like you said not just the play. i always knew a good awfully. Awfully said people can go back to times said webbie's info against i still say he's infected. He's he's the best center for me. When he's playing. Melvin honey mcguire Stick by james school materials to commit be potential but it's interesting because watching the game. I say he's becoming a guy who's pushing them up ciccio in holding box making sure people were picking up it kicks in and all the kind of things said the vinnie. Cuckney kind of thing that needed. They've lost more than anything in Ahead of Views now a cynical things in eastern on chipping bull looks to me like you start to become seniors. Professional like football is now the most important thing in his life that that being the defense to lynch pin of munch city is now ovidio wants to be moving. Diaz is commensurately again. I'm going to help him. And get the full bucks right. And i'm gonna make sure midfielder in front me metro the goalkeeper toes and they responsibility. I think he's taken owning south These games may team better play. I think he's more concentrated. I think he's more aware of things happening in the butler that he did. He wasn't before that he was almost switch off and let somebody else do. I think we're in the middle of of a evolution of gemstones. Were up. And i think it's really important that we recognize it right now. Because he's he's in the middle of this role. Maybe in a few more months is gonna really feel like he's the main man defensively. And ruben diaz you know was big fee and a lot of applauded for how cities defending as being. But i think what after watching him and listening to him up to sing. He's doing his leadership. We are seeing change in now. And i hope for him rob that continues on hope. The old gemstones. We know we add some postal shoes. We know the mistakes for the national team for for for Out the team ridiculed a little bit. That's tough to take any being ready. So i say him on on a loving trajectory and confident leader some defending individual of any managing the game as while it was running. Rob seema verma lay on. Yeah he didn't turn the wrong side. Deface apply all times. He sold out really really good night and just just finish up on. Say a little bit robert. I now. the season. I felt i felt like is the excitement july months to city and i think the first few weeks a month see. It's not see. I don't see the desire then what we talked about somebody. They said they're going to be both about the champions league table. That about the premier league. I've always starting to see some excitement returning to the team. Rob in the prospect of winning the primitive this this season. Yeah i mean maybe we have the conversation and people have the conversation in terms of. What's the property. I still think. Pep guardiola wants to win the premier league. I still think he sees a as an important paul of of what he's doing in english football champions league we not with the holy grail. That's one big one. They wanna win but it hurts. The pool took away The police the goals in the in the accolades. Thank y'all and he wants to show over fifty eight games Style of football with a few tweets with a few additions constant win English football iran. In all of a sudden the jewish on combat Award for best is late. By the li- joy comes back into place. Continue to step up and get back to enjoy At stanford bridge. Let's check out the rob That's not much joy at the moment that some setting will lock in bit leadership in any is it maybe a little. I mean after the game that i think he was the athletic that came out with a headline that same news coming from stamford bridge that the chelsea not happy with what asean. Ns stole into consider with candidates who might be best suited to a as ever no chelsea Will be things will happen all happening. France stolen get into a little bit fascia. A about the game. I front and Chelsea ha how does your point you mazda on a day where were looking for something to to shaw to kick In one. I think what what's becoming clear to me. rob Is the chelsea omeday when that football is great on those plans Looking great they can look lovely. Look lovely on the certainly enjoyed watch of little popo petrov a few weeks ago when a winning each absolutely fantastic warm learning from them is. They're not durable. The not adaptable a non manager. There as well not very adaptable. If things in the in the game a going in a different direction like debris come into midfield. You can do things to change on. You can change your shape. He'll start you can to side-by-side midfield press. You can bring him this things you can do. I'm not seeing that also raw. Talk about pulisic. Zia kovic mason mount in a lot of good times. I really studied these players in this game when they were they were losing and they were getting played. The pocket over time i saw on seoul payers the walking and we're a little bit thrown yom's in the air i'm watching city run through midfield saying coverage i'm saying mason now not really doing much. Well as central midfield place going to county trying his best enough a great game but at least trying to defend i saw i saw christian pulisic waving his arms looking for straightening and i get that. The football wasn't very good for chelsea so understand. The town's applies one more pussy. But i'll tell you what i want. A form of support from manager on the coaching staff. I wanted to raleigh sleeves. Run back and help out defensively. The only way chelsea have become durable and stronger. I'm more of a around team is if in difficult times. They roll their sleeves up. They run back with at midfield place and they hustle may chase a block and the just listened to guarantee monuments southampton those plays it got to defend as a team now chelsea not doing that role. But that's a good point Similar thing. Tim's when i said on the podcast the water vote for me chelsea. What if when they wanna look against west time last week. That didn't do well. Managing the game and got slightly portion of the western. Didn't get buckingham Now what if one of the well if when that will no down things. Don't chew them in that football club thins don't trigger update mouth. These things that i look at the group in the teams on played in and not not not playing i played with with getting chelsea's team in tim's ability. Not tell you what intend to via chewed thing. If something should go wrong in my team for five voices telling me what i need to do. Do eight four or five. So i'm god and i'm not. I'm not sure these anybody in this chelsea who tells publicity coosa mason mumps it any who tells us now. The isn't coming from the team. In the group. Scott come from the sidelines. Innovating coming from the sidelines will rub. It's not it's not coming from the sidelines. it's no. I don't see the players working back as they should work back. You know. there's a lot of talk this club about news and this caused some. There's there's some validity behind young team new signs. Take time to get that right and it is a real thing. We've seen that i'm with kobe. Spin around being affected by weather but another thing. The team doesn't have any fight chelsea team. This chelsea team rob doesn't fight this fight and a lot of good teams in a little bit different ways. But but but there's this there's a limited amount of fight and whether it's your point of somebody behind i'm gonna with somebody i don't. I don't really see that whether people losing their angrily bengal for straight and just it just has a lot. I saw walking when they need to be defending. And it's something maybe just a couple of new signings rubio like talk about dr rice. Go about going to go to mars and soldiers because it always goes back there. A ton of this rob they going of soldiers and go to come to the soldier other than yours jer. Us pretty quieter is but it's coming using. You've got to be both now role by the way that took place. I can just one you not not to be so you both the house. Yes will do on his spouse. That's why outstanding play stealing money back and chasing you didn't have a really gang you watch defenders and they've learned titles by so it's kind of well easing all so he's done a you got duties houston swelling and not try. And maybe that's part of what you know. Frank is going to get across to these union decides to take people onto school goals to create but when angle the bowl. You decide to do the defensive stuff as well. The general rob and it's not often what the i are. We bringing our own situation because it's not go. Things moved on. You know we didn't play for chelsea. Romans t but i'll tell you what always helped me as an individual and i always encourage on my teammates. The white get too good. Football again is the other side of the game. If i was climbed body with the border wasn't getting involved in the game well the game was passing me. By whatever was i triggered myself. Why okay without the ball is going to make it happen so close down. Get stuck in and make a attack. I try and hush lecture that if we altered our team and we we did a few times. You'd be surprised at the the work without the ball helps you with the ball because you win the ball back in good spots. They've all gone forward. You coninck counterattack and space open. If you just just accept it happening joke back of wall can go through the motions like the chelsea did not first off. There's no way back way back so many times is okay. Everybody we see what's happening roller sleeves up. We all working together. Let's get taught cisco tight the shuffler cross. I mean that's just my personal experience of yet. I didn't work for me and my team many times when things weren't going well just say in the shelton about in the best teams do liverpool's phenomenal season. Last year was as much based on intense team winning the bar. All sag elgin denied teams. Didn't realize you take. They were the best quickly. Considering that we still getting outlets could live about franken situation in the money in in chelsea and ownership in spending two hundred million dollars in some expectations you get you get. The headline unwind still out. Yeah i unwanted widow surprise. We don't know how roman abramovich is these days because just a few years ago now all the firing happen to hiring and firing and the next guy so i'm sure a leopard doesn't change his spots. I'm sure it's under pressure. I'm not surprised with the authentic article. I would just say this for me. In my opinion is too soon played. If the guy time please give a guy at least this season and see how it shakes out sale. The team ended the season. I i you know. Frank lampard could be a sensational manager for this many years to come winning many trophies. Please be sure. I say it's all the time so situation like this. Please be show that. He's not the guy. please be sure. Wait give him some more time. maybe you he can. He can shake things up the second half of the season another window. Possibly but i get it a look at late several right in front of me chelsea ninth place right now. Route seventeen got twenty six points the same points as western villa villa. Play two games. Fewer is a terrible look for chelsea giving money but for me come see if he can find a way to be more durable more deductible. Find a way to be more of a fighting team. Because the industry's enroll if asiana simas ball he's going to go full in it. Absolutely trump is league football and he. It doesn't help. If if austin villa southampton abbots in lasted a new not kind of money is gonna get you album. Robin is going to find. This is learning now and you know we have. And he's a legend in get lot trying to time now. Been eager is to the season roach got the time. Ask him for what i do. Think the onus being out in the country i think is six from six was on lot kind of help but it's not a day today on top of it and fa cup against smoking. The full medical few ingesting games coming for johnson champions league lesko madrid could also be injustice. A- we don't yet don't go to mount one that might be after you pull them so yeah Great data city. Let's meet on a south contemplate liverpool excite. Matty's was much today We've got good match. I mean southampton tomato team. I love to watch now. I've been respectful. What they do in how they're doing it with the monitor yourself. Really looking forward to the game liverpool team in the greatest of net. Come for women on joe. With westbound nil-nil joel wit wisdom newcastle. Maybe saw surprise jordan henderson play center about with the no children with midfield with when doom and shaming and the normal funds. Eight mile. bobby and Monay is three couldn't get the job. Done a musty cruel starts in game giveaway on nether really. I didn't feel. Luke can school a combination of things i think the first the first half was was pulled from liverpool really really bad star. Trent alexander arnold rob. I've said this time now. I spend some time. When i look back at liverpool goals conceded over the last year or so and a lot comes down his side and we all know what brennan footballer is and some his passing crossing sex as we all know that simply you know. He's got to improve robin. I hope he is going to be working at that side of his game. I'm going prompted. Got off again today. About iraq for the goal has kind of like in between two players. The boys have head of the chessy. Doesn't do so brilliant finishing danny ings. So post often from from liverpool second guy. I mean like dominates. The game over couldn't find couldn't find a really great chance couple of minutes reasons for that southampton's defending and going back to walk just talked about chelsea. I mean you you talk about midfield players about midfield. Protecting the full gun nafta really well on strong as a player that i've liked the way he plays with the bulb with the bull proust always in. I mean it's just a brilliant. Without the bolt former since unlivable rob just. I didn't whether the three guys in midfield. And you know. We all know the from three of liverpool. What they're going to do this game showed the lack of goal scorer from midfield Auction genie just didn't kind of look right to me. Did it lacked a little something to that oath. Doesn't midfield like a goal score mean chairman of course was was is in the team to provide. I listen we know that the midfielder imports is is set up in a way that enables us and the full box to go forward so it's a little different but just cross his lip. We're getting some gray spots. I'm looking at oxfam just saying three shirts. It was a couple of time you know. Security talks too much went out and getting the box was the deeper one so i get that just yet. I a Midfield god just to make a different. Yeah yeah the. It's not the i also. I think mistake in the middle of the field. I just think he drives the team. Manila way back to the then he come from that sentiment. Nearly what may experience on put one of the kids in that for being him if played in midfield. So maybe about that was was of Again going to give some credit to southampton defensively Iraq's winter so that could feature job is an individual who gets to requirements. Maybe not going to be good enough is tuning into a very very good Full huge cutting. That kid admit midfield. It ebrahim diablo. He's gonna pay as well by the way. Who's oh keep juicing. Play the is interesting because the danny ings goal is among if sensible brennan's let alone glide could go school go and it's kind of funny that the next complain and left almost what level didn't they needed danny in team. Now maybe jogo justice guy. He's been in my command entrusting lon else in into jimmy carter. Inchon said he wouldn't do. This is maybe it's time while things going while 'cause i played with the most outspoken. From is no doubt about lap. You know since seven goals against polish. Could he go to four to three one and get an extra Get maybe a. Bobby bobby just got somebody who could maybe open a also. Just carry say more than maybe we need to transition justice spokesman something that might be a different chemistry and a bit more dynamic because they just look is though. It's a little bit style at the moment going forward. I i know you're saying. I still thought they played some good football. I still go. Being fit is going to be a big improvement for them. I stay blind raw. But we've prayed for the defensive side of things they looked. They looked threaten a few times. They did get forward henderson. Fabio we know the issues were the defense about little get that another teams that got similar situation. A make continued vulnerable. But i thought someone to play was still good. Still just the final bowl you know. The sometimes when teams piled on the pressure is the full to you. Little ricocheted of monay or to most site just didn't fall to them as well as the great defending i still and this may not sound like typically smart but i still i still like the way they play in lead. It said in the speed. I don't think it's the time is going to go away. I i looked at it. Bulb is an inch is nothing zanjeer lachey that said it last week. It advocated Usually see in you fool with plays what went on the tightness in fatigue. Sometimes beautiful place that you save in most khazei to be this fall. The creative the go The skill he sometimes teases baby-friendly will destroy object to get a block. Came to stop things but to create things you go three of uncomfortable Fulton be now loudly and maybe just in the pool. Think of games in the of tight compression. Blade is just a fraction of those from in the shot mistake. Chase him just before in this game. We didn't mel solid stick will really to have a big and so was it was distracted in the western side. But listen as just women like shave one job for you in the right way and you golic sometimes spokesperson awful. Three games now whether they For goes in Goal is to some time. Now since i've been held goalless just in milwaukee figured in just the last line on them. And i think what it means now is like we. We're gonna have a rice live long. This bit commend. The could've pushed away in an open. Goffin for you. You're gonna move by just wanted to mention the manager raphael. Yeah final game is to him. I mean see trends there. This you know this season. There's nothing you haven't haven't qualify for europe or they haven't but manager rob the means so much to beat the champions or maybe you're klopp. He hasn't taken him before his knees with tears in his eyes. I'm like wow a spreading on the goosebumps. You know what i mean. And you're tells you go a proper ingrains coach. He was missing last game lost. These is go kick bango gives. The covid is issues. Is it team that you know injuries in kovin and small club and so legitimate stores to liverpool in and he's worked Plays and he's got some young guys in there and you talk about what what chelsea James quality ability but he gets work. He got spunk. Shards of the game and any finds a way they will quickly kick. Danny ings after say sometimes hitmen will look initial times. You know getting eaten up to berlin foreign quickly so those little things that count you work on to see come to fruition and keep a clean sheet. Nee not bit. Aloke and things didn't draw. It was great. It just tells you so much about the mom and what fokina football means to you know without the the qualities in the money of the other teams. You can do another way. And then he showed it can do of way Future for this big. This may come as a surprise but my family is ready to get out of the house.

Indifference enjo- joel plays against him out of it. All it's individuals against the team. Much nazi winning games munches united on joint level points with the pool at the top of the table a month. Apart the compensation this semester. I'm were serious now. This is serious. What they're doing now. And i thought every planet played well rob wasn't wasn't a jada. Pick our anybody particularly spectacular. But it's not often where. I look at the united team and look at each department and while these played really well. I like luke showroom. I've always liked luke short. I think. I think he's playing really well. Right now is left. Fullback guests forty quick enough. Defensively would sound in the game. I thought fred for somebody. That i've really got too excited about rob and when you think you do think this should be of more quality now. I thought he'd tight really. Well thought into going into some good spots. Everybody played well when basilica better down. Yeah good going forward. Yeah you wanna break teams and be serious about getting to the top of this premier league and a still not really sure whether he's got enough quality to talk to turn around and comes back again many times he had a much better game so really really good signs from the united. Wow i i'm i'm surprised. At how building and they've gone some victories. That didn't play particularly great but they got the points. This was a bad performance from them to one moscow. Get into gaul bruno again. I mean it's Estan excitement you missed out one. Big name that pool papa. In you talked about things last week you said you know. Is it away that they can find those names in. J e did this time got poker inside now Gave performance of civility gave. Both ends of the pit. Performance did not always seem from full. Defense shot his game looked important. It got really good. Had his in blocks in defensive side you Goal great skill in midfield. The can do. Joe mcguiness kind of thing you can do. You broke Himself go run over woman Short wavy doing you know. Listen we when he's not comfortable publicly commodities I we have to give them credit that he pointed to confluence wa if he can get to the consistency kind of level on the weekend week basis. Do about team not have much chance of being close to child just i. I agree with all that at a really good game really involve some great moments. I just don't know if i can trust him to do that every week. Rob and we talk and he's just set it. I mean wow. We're into lawyers into his manchester united create. This time he was and he's planting this left side. Which is unusual for. He can make it work by rowing signing all the play. I just want to say every week from paul pogba january. I worry about transfer window like his plan. Is he just playing to impress. I also think if he feels and this is just a white maybe the white years if he feels in not. I got chance in the premier league rob in my one of the weather. It might be excited now. We don't let them bruno's amazing and like actually an that might spark into being consistent. Talk which i think is in there. But we haven't seen that much as united so i agree much better football. I want to say regularly robin. I wonder if in the next two or three weeks. We're gonna be here looking in these cameras and said you know he's disappointed again. But i think that's the money his job. Nothing different players different motivations in full public feels in a winning change going to push those buttons to get the best of him But i think some interesting time. Nothing if you can't get in on saad while all of a sudden neutral in different thing. But i'm gonna also good for my A four hundred billion mischievous still. And i'm gonna go for everybody. It will love it. Like pope is shown it times caught. It looks like to me. Looks like the one to build round and could be great point if a highly. Maguire chimes bit blacklist. Looks like he's emotional. Control at times let him down can get cool things. If he's on a yellow universal trusting update to get second yellow but what miss gay was outstanding. He defended well in any zone box. He stopped it's vat so nashville go good movement and rotation in the frontline. I think he's a good foil for harry maguire. Because he wants to go with the pool. Mcguire knows his role Decides he's a little bit more aggressive mcguire. Mcguire can get on the bowl and make things I've always had a problem. Manchester united center about pattern. Could i don't think they've got one. This is the son. Glimpse of what. I could be like new like by lindelof in this situation. Yeah yeah for me yeah. Lindelof might Cleverer read things. Better a lot. The ruinous of by you next to to to mcguire keeping into it with a this. Doesn't that come an element of risk inanimate of panic A think i mean he had a great game so as a great pick view this week but sometimes you also you going to do with it and we've seen a couple of games. I just don't know whether he would be my my. I think i might prefer ended off. Rob yeah Just a little bit more reliable. I know he means no such a good natural defenders egg by a great game. Outlaid block was was a huge. What late then But no kushtia under appreciated has been under appreciated. Maybe with with us myself a little bit but but that was a great game in needed him and he stepped year less again. Let's see if he can if the united intend to this setting off the season these if you count people's sustain this level positions as if they can. It looks very different as villa and do jane. Smith look different team. Nine eleven bishen of china. Get you in full economic nicely. Let's move on to me Face legion and Vinci's defense joe's a vision beyond said leads Spurs defend him on the counter attack. Pretty much weight. Our when lead cacique three goals in loose females respond public plane while being who leads all. Yeah i thought what. I've watched the first first paula game. I think i tweeted out. Yeah this leads flying gray splurged this white it really good match for jobs arena because he likes teams to play out from the back into a time into throat because when they make a mistake and was mistakes. Leads make may seem to make a lot with funding plan. whether it's a goalkeeper playing out a pounce on him and make brilliant for players and we know that if they went out three winners and as expected spurs were strong defensively rob even when liens they still going to always come and attack spurs really strong ready for what needs gave him So really good for supposed to get by contract. I think there's a little bit of talk this the nature. The season is natwest but a run. Wake site about your club spurs. The first ones like i can win the league you know and now they talk at the same thing i needed. It really good win For spurs i just with the lead singer robin on that. I tweeted out a new set of the unknown until filed. The papers talks about. You know the this okay. I read in the uk media. It's really iding opinion. They'll bit read. It talked about it a law. Is this okay. The marcelo bielsa did say you. Don't care find the founding four. You know you stop by the no you saw talks about. They should they should tweak it maybe change a little bit. What do you mean you know how they might change things going full screen. Chesty money as divisive. Nfl listen leauge if komo. Let's get some things out late. Tim's of leading salt the season. I was one of those in south. Weaver primarily lease in. It is the best league seeing how they've played their their most watch team. What what what. What will say is you all. But in the football development to the plaza love the Who all these. Goals scored goals against noah I was going people said you know. What do i won't not i wanna change but want to tweak and why i say that is because Most alabi also. It also is a master coach. I mean you see in the in the team. In the way they play but must coach shouldn't just be master coach about one end of the pitch. It must should be able to also address the intervention institute the school of theology three conceded fifty three goals on the westbound They've scored she goes only talk three or four of got more arkan's liverpool less money now. It's in chelsea school. Also this chamber can win games and this is a team in this initially grow. If they were better defensively they could talk six and could be taught sixteen now. I know that people will say the else's way that's why they're not enough and i'm saying that's capable as might be. It might not walk on the leads funds. Some people saying. I want to hear. But i'm going to say publising thing. If this was only going to social. I don't think which solely tilles ways gonna take. We'd say are inexperienced. Still defense out. Why why would be also do. We are not allowed to say Con- he just adapted little bit so it would not have open couple of things. first thing i'll say is In this particular game three of that experience a major center of accident with the match so the defensively weakened illuminating is my place in different spot yet. A book kalk unlim- lame coupo-. The main centre backs were out is not going to be easy for any side and then. So that's that's probably the main warrant big impact on this game. Then don't go into your point and okay. So what sort of tweaks for me. He got to where they are right now. Role entertaining amazing statement football. I'm thrilled torch. Every single game competitive with most sides and control against anybody didn't obviously has game and it's got them to twenty three points after seventeen matches with us. I am the way that he plays. If you get your tweets in a minute you'll tweaks if you start changing bits of mentality. Bits of tactical structure. Oh you know what you don't go forward so much and actually we're not gonna go to mom we're going to go zonal and we're going to sit behind the ball gonna play counterattack. I think if you stops it to make little tweaks that that it does change a lot of things and everything changes. They turn into a team like everybody else. One thing robert. We've all enjoyed is that we have never seen a team. Never go from the championship playing this way with plans. The no there's no proven permanent place within the more very few. If any and yet they are doing this this lipin end-to-end gung-ho throw people forward and his scotland to the most important thing it's gotten to i mean they were they thought nine points even more than that way from the relegation zone seven wins tons. Goes you you tell me what what they should do. This going to not inhibit walk this manager. Mothers team brings to the league. Well i hear and let me you finish point. Which valid point that three Descended sweeping defenders team semi i response to that is molded lease in bringing in younger inexperienced players to either sometimes. Leave them one on one if after him on mojo. When i've got mine my opposition. I've got world class. Clinical counter chuckle writes in hurricane in unison. So sisters they've never just into their opponents. I'm not saying they haven't or you say no. Because they haven't they can't you the cook. The silopi elsie doesn't do that. he should never be. It's like okay chino's overly It's okay as long as he entertains the it doesn't have to saint wanting to change. I don't think you have. Stitching is not a one with the older. It can be a little bit of you. Don't have to change the whole mentality to get more. I i really don't like is when when lead leads moves and got more praising. The team can win and i don't think that's quite right in english football. I think the most if most of the gals who is a master tactician china china say about the also looking. You'll lease team and see how you'd break him down because he never plan so why could even line. He not been able to say we're really chain we can we can. School gets anybody. We can go toe to toe because the philosophies philosophy behind so if you few stocks were change not changed. everything doesn't it. it changes everything he does it. Change every as pat changed abington by slightly making city. Is everything changed. You cannot can still change with impact store to show it in manchester city that maybe that was something they out to do this this year and i just. I'm just one of those who listen. It's not the populous. Can that be all set. But do you know what that's not. Our job is to some onset in question in proven and unless in funds probably bit For the fair seasonal it's brilliant. It's been great entertainment and it will say that's what we want. And if we can see if we can see on just asking and maybe leads. Don't have to be those after i'm just asking. Is the money held. The try be gone is it isn't a time or point he can just affecting percent five percent. I listen. I hear your points robin No you mean. But i still look at the league table. A look at the other teams got promoted on the west brom bomber the league and look at success this style. This this attitude has had to united doing it exactly the way that the duty it even though sometimes it looks crazy and the goes go flying in the other side but there was the results the winds the points an indication of how it's gone given you the team then the promoted and struggling. I don't see any reason. I wouldn't wanna see him. Change anything the stops. What's ultimately rob golden success so found the premise and away from relegation zone with this amazing stain and football. They've happened so i just you know we're record up on this is just what about changing. What don't you know. don't you do that mr to get going. I just think that changed everything and become less successful role. That's what my wife would be. If i'm a leeds fan don't kind of successful. We kind of challenge in nearly every side showing any team which is fun to watch. Yup we're gonna do agree to disagree on this. Because i hear you and unless the genomic neutral and in all honesty i don't care because the golden i quite enjoyed goes going round. I'm just not going down the popular slot this sick less than sentencing I'm just saying everybody else in the league and everybody else in Brilliant focal putting wave during isn't alive during that time how long it goes. How successful they all Your there's long as as it's how you look at it but luckily omega Games over the weekends newcastle. Losing to one Nil nil time. But less defined way set in hof medicine and with could goals and the cattle council schooled for newcastle twinkies. Face goal in ten years to new custody in auntie not enough to to get points. Atherton came along against time. Thomas suit check with the ample. Are what a siamese With twenty four million dollars means is still. His goal was enough to get the win full west time and then also my friend Fooling win against west Kinda going to plan off the module with liberal but another good day for also Yeah i think that the more confidence put was pretty obvious to see rob I think we've we've touches a couple of times. I i like also right now in a simplified system. I don't think this three that goes to a full when the moves inside the does this. I guess the right to do that. The full two three one with what they've played now recently. I like it. I like the front three rubio a the front three bombing the left lab front because soccer on the right hand side. I liked that walk. And you'll swear throw Is is the number ten right now. Yeah whether they talk about trying to find somebody else and has been a couple of names so now that you have to play in things come me but yeah i just think they. They look different. They look confident. Undergo straight onto my guy my Under pressure of the weekend yet here. Antennae raw bill watts. It goldie scored wanna play. Looks like he's becoming for for a future captain for show. It's been your injury problems really. I went to the club. Obviously the club's been up and down and we sin plaza left side at center back in recent Recent weeks because they just needed him there but now he's in as bradfo a regular fullback left by going forward. What we're saying player. We are really saying a an. He will is going to be more and more appreciated as time goes on also because his pickup good signing friend of mine's celtic fan. An e talked about how powerful was beast left by getting four with state. Now brilliant first goal in an awesome form. it's like it gave me a cumulus. a warm light. Your little feeling on became an other nearby robert throat. You in a second now disney fill out. The primly needs also. It needs a good honest silky chiasso and he's a goal that they school with beautiful football a little combination. Play the one who's get around the by chopping isn't the perimeter is a better place with a silky in it exactly the pleming leagues better with all the big teams. Kinda doing that thing on the on the last season and the average ins in the aston villa's in the south southampton's poll sheena probing In china do that and you say it was. There was a smile. Can't face with the Goal built a little bit for some lad miles away also in was smiling us what they were. That's football club is built on that goal and the dry. He was an also team that go to us. We knew what sums tactics. We're going to be so you gotta go patients to break down and the key came into anything so it makes me laugh because we have shots of The snow was coming down at westbound job. When you're showing the thing is planning to summertimes games It was interesting. Everybody else was wrapped up with smooth. Jin hoodies and things tanning schultz. In tissue woman. I mind body like is up ninety schools. Beautiful go comments on these routes and as you say i think it captured in making a false no in terms if what he does hit soccer talkin about a master in how employee museum In will boys love him so yet. spend it took time for Just designs earnings good for him as well role on easy ship to turn around by the way back when when in like that and to find a way and i think it's really important if found a way to stop the bleeding into find a way to get results again an eastern really. Well now three wins on a very difficult times for young manager. But i wanted to give him a job done because you need it. You need show everybody. You can stop this and you can. You can devise a methodology in a team selection can get a grip and not winning again. And they've done it really really well. Tough times west. Brom rob could resonate with entitled the other contenders. Is it different. The jimmy wind. Johnny windows gonna have to be eligible. Because i don't think he's got that you can work with enough to to stay up. I don't think the play is a well-equipped back teams Better than maybe happened in the past when he when he's been able to start old people these individuals who cannot moments that can. Can you open the still goes. He's not a lot of goals in the team. Which robinson colin graham guingona peru technical plays go to get mixed ride in. I just think it is often loan backed bagging borrow a few. Maybe in the window to try stiff not give themselves a chance to share rob. This is different. This is a newly promoted team that he's trying to is trying to to play us and stuff and i think this is gonna be one one too much. What we'll say we'll say. Eight safety rope that eight from burnley. In then you've got bernie got newcastle light that you might expect and then crystal paddock's interesting a look at the tape. I think it's really really difficult. let's say you talked about the trump this show it's into really checchi premier league. I'm went up quite sure who who's gonna trumpet. Time around. Point spots spoke out. Our partners is over. The denise offense the liverpool defeat today and it now sets manchester city on now believe it's Yet minus one hundred twelve against liverpool at plus two hundred and twenty manchester united now Seven hundred seven to one in l. Money sean hotspur full teen hundred to one so fool into one that then you've got chelsea's full thousand to one basically fully to one less than four thousand to one evident ten thousand ten thousand in all snow plus twenty ounce which is two hundred to one so much city. On the back of stony performance really at stamford bridge now the favorites from our opponents by sportsbook to take it's all i think men united offer good value plus seven hundred of Now yeah we w tempting for for big united fans in terms of who we think rob at this point. I still think liverpool for me mike. This point went any halfway Paul might be ended. Wild talk about this stuff. I think even with their shoes. I still think that will come out on top but say you know. It's it's wider. I don't say that with a great deal of confidence. They not favorites here. You're going to get stronger. Let's say by the way getting better. The players still. You still teachable. You still thousand plus four thousand. This particular podcast. Doing the business might and they get stiff until last year is you can get stronger into push on so have a little above a little bit of money unless the city What do you think. Wash your liverpool all in the pool. It start the season at two twenty I still would say liverpool announced But we go to save off days. What what's going to happen. This season is teams.

LADS#147 - No One Wants To Be Fourth

"Brought to you by GS K. If we map the genetics of disease could we change? Its course a GS k we know the information encoded in our genes provides vital knowledge, so we're working with partners to decode using technology like an advanced search engine we can spot the patterns that lead to diseases like Parkinson's or else Heimer because by identifying the patterns that cause disease we hope to transform how patients are treated in the future. No, no. No. Thing of hey, AM, competitor and Martin Frazier. And we are loud Americans discussing soccer better known as last. All right today is Wednesday, April twenty four twenty nineteen from south Philadelphia and Charlotte North Carolina Martin, this might be the saddest episode of lads this year. What do you think we taught to what what the fuck guys podcast justna this up? He goes everything that could go wrong. Just went wrong for everybody in the top four race. And so we're salty sad guys podcast right now kicking off with a bang. I am been a piece of shit that I am and drinking Bud Light. But ice it is delicious. And it was the only thing left in my fridge. So a jumped on that like, why don't rice have how the fuck is you doing stewed? I was just telling you right before the podcast started. I am the busiest fuck and be in the world. I am pollinating every goddamn flour. And ruining my fucking allergies. So weird. That's why because these Bs be fucking. On my nose. But yeah, I've been good. I've been fucking crazy. I'm doing my friend's wedding this weekend or Friday shall at the J. Nicole Jay is a lad supporter. So I'm officiating my fifth, wedding, baby. That's five rings on this guy. I'm like, Tom Brady one more. And I am Tom Brady. I got my first month's rent up in Boston taking care of I got fucking trial going on at work. So yeah, I've been meaning to say like sorry guys. We haven't been really posting them much on the social media mean more have fucking sin. Some of the craziest weeks of our? I mean for me, I know more crazy like, you know, building, you know, some, you know, reads and shit. I don't know what you'd build morning. I. Rigs work good. Okay. I'm gonna give rigs you're making like a fucking monster, trucks and shit. I don't know. But this has been to some the craziest, you know, trying to find a job in Boston. Like, I have a place but new job like it's been fucking stressful, man. But you know, I just want to say that the person shout the Jess who's our website person for lads. She's been working hard on the website. So I'd offer still stands if anyone wants to join in on the fun and help us write blogs and keep keep on the lad stuff go and let me know, man. I'm totally open to that. And that would be that'd be really cool. But I feel about Martin I feel bad. I just feel like I've haven't been in full soccer Premier League MU mode just because so much. It's been going on our lives, and we've talked about that how we've been trying to keep up even though like I turned fucking twenty-five like in less than two weeks. And I'm like fuck like holy shit. Fucking adulthood comes at you quick and fast. And we we had this real sad come together come to earth moment a couple of weeks ago when we were talking about how how wild our lives are in the wildness of the premise season or like, I feel like we're not appreciating this as as we should as we could. So just bear with us as we fucking stumbled towards the end of the finish line. I am fucking stoked for the final five games of the season. I can't believe it's wrapping up so quickly. I'm about to cry. But you're all this has been another fucking fun as year, obviously over till the fat lady sings, but thank you all for sticking with a sticking together. And supporting the leads podcast, y'all. Adrian is about to be over Kevin's about be one year older and the proposed about lose another title everything. Hey. Sounded like a really bad green day song like a proven. April and you're a year older. It's like a blink one eight you song. But those right there get some get some chills. All right. Let's let's throw some headlines. Martin I got an all time line from the one in only on Ibrahimovic. Are you ready for this s? So there's lot in after criticizing the VA decision on Houston's goal in the galaxies two one win. He said, maybe the MLS will punish me. But I am the MLS. So don't worry about it. Fucking like let him the king of earth's like given that title guys. He deserves it. Yeah. I mean, just typicals lot. And I mean, the guy is just a walking quote machine and spot the live Martin. I mean, he is the MLS. I mean, he usually is like I've been trying to follow the MLS. And the only things I follow is like when's lines in the headlines. And you know, I if they find him, I you know, thoughts and prayers to them because their their biggest drawl I saw something today where what's it called the NBA ratings are down because LeBron's not in imaginative slot and wasn't an MLS right now. Just imagine could you imagine? I could not I think I wanted one MOS game this year, and it was the L A galaxy versus the union. So if slot was wasn't pain. There goes one audience member, right. There is lawn is so big them. Oh as can't hurt him, basically as law known them. Oh as the MO as belongs to lot now. And there's nothing that can do and in all honesty. This is a perfect scenario because this means law can shape the MLS ways lawn. Once it ends lawns gonna make pretty fucking great league. If you asked me a bunch of Lawton's running around I'd go to every single game. I would I would I think we'd all be pretty scared seeing a lot of signs on the field. Honestly, it'd be a little low terrifying. But Martin moving into more Premier Li news the list of the players of the year have been announced you'll may name for you. Yeah. So okay. Thank you. Yeah. All right. The players are Sergio guero man city Virgil Van Dyke Liverpool Eden hazard from Chelsea saudi-omani Liverpool Bernardo Silva man city where he surly city. Muhammad Salah are PFA player last year is not on the list. So that would cause a little bit of controversy. Low people are upset with this. But you know, I don't I couldn't see like maybe Bernardo Silva, even then I think he's deserving of PFA player shout or on the shortlist. You know what I mean? So I'm pretty fine with this list. Yeah. Man on the only thing that related me. Trouble on this is like you said Bernardo Silva inclusion on the list. But like I like you said give them a shout. You know what? Even if he comes in last place. The kid is fucking dank at soccer needs been improving this entire year under pennies getting a bigger and bigger role in that Manchester City team to the point where he's almost becoming a crucial crucial player for them in. That was not the case last year. And it definitely wasn't the case in the beginning of the season. So I think I don't think he will win it. I don't think he should win it. But I think it's perfectly all right to get the kid a shout. Put him on the list. Through the Salal exclusion. I personally am not too upset over it. Obviously there is some inherent bias there. But I think when you look at Liverpool season this year compared to last year in the impact he he had it as an individual on the Liverpool success of last year compared to this year. You can see nothing even remotely similar to what he did for Liverpool. This year this year living a more complete team. I think the inclusion of Van Dyke and Monay his absolutely warranted. They are absolutely the better to players on that letter poll team this season. So like, I said not a bad list. All in all let the English decide who the balloon door winners. Because apparently, the French can't do listen the English tan so big win for the British right now. Yeah. The whole I want you had to bring that up. I forgot about Luca Madre twin the bound your now won't fucked up got give it all right? Speaking of one of the PFA player nominees were hime. Sterling had a very interesting quote today where hime sterling on the punishment for racist behavior games. He said for the punishment. I'd call for an automatic nine point deduction for racist abuse is sounds harsh. But which fan will risk racist behavior if it might roll gate their team or ruin their title bid. And then I saw a bunch of. I think it was man you and like city fan saying like I'm going to Anfield next week and being racist. Fuck. So. Shout out to that guy. But. Fuck with that penalty. Dude. I, you know, you know, what if you guys wanna be racist will say goodbye three or four places. I can guarantee you that will shut up most of the racist soccer fans. Yeah. A racist might slip in every once in a while. But I guarantee you after the first time that should happen. Nobody's gonna let anything happen again. Nobody wants to lose nine points automatically for the punishment of something off the field nodding involving the team at all. So I'm kind of a fan for that punishment. It's kind of a strong punishment. But at the same point nothing has been done. There's really been little to no recognition by UEFA, the FA or fee for that matter. I think the FA just launched a say, no to racism, social media campaign, and in all honesty, saying with all the Twitter movements and everything else that ain't gonna do shit in the real world Balkan punish the shit out of the team. In that will cause the racist. Supporters daughter shut their mouths or you know, what keep doing it until the fans turn on him and the fans kick him out, and they're not allowed back in the stadium because of the fans and the police I'm about this rain. You got my vote. Yeah. I think I totally agree with your point everything else has been just like a slap on the fuck and wrist hasn't done anything to quell is that the word stop any of this racist. You know, behavioral games being monkey chance. Be bananas thrown on the field. Be antoine. Greece. Been doing black face, you know, tons of examples, but you know, I imagine a team in the relegation battle getting a nine point. She's Jesus Christ. Imagine if like. Oh, a magic Darby in. I think twenty two thousand nine season they only had ten points to end the season. Imagine at the finish the season with one point that would be a spectacle bar. None. All I. Yeah. Would you have Lincoln weighed? So if you could have this is just like a dumb question, but say they had like, you know. Had only gotten like five points somehow. And then you get a nine point deduction. Could you have minus points? Zero a true zero or can you did lower? I know you can have a negative goal differential were some no can you at two points tallies. Can you have negative points? Because if so. Ooh. My I suggest we start adding negative points to random aspects of the game. You get two or more writing cards over the course of a month as a team, you get a negative one point make it ruin arresting normally fucked up soccer's viewed I think we'd just ruined soccer. But imagine that like day one of the Premier Li next year some team gets them racist drug asshole. And then they started they start off the season minus nine. Get it in the community and they'd going to season minus nine. It's it's fucking born. So normally they're at the top because their names the first now for goals this. But now they're at the bottom with negative non blondes all I could be doing than ABI such shit Homa. God that'd be amazing. All right before we get into the games Martin. I just had one more little little fun stat for you. Are you ready? Leeds united. Went to the champion's league semifinal in two thousand one. This is just a reminder Martin that despite spending a combined two point five billion. Neither PS g nor man city have gone further than Leeds United in the Champions League. Fucking jokes clubs man sitting on PS, g leaders all also squirreling away their automatic promotion to the Premier League. So Kev, we might have to pick another team because leads is our current incumbent when Huddersfield puppies those away. And now we're gonna put our lads curse on them. So quick I feel bad for leads. So they might not wanna come up because they're definitely getting sent back down when we pick them next year from Martin let's start off with we're not gonna start off of our teams. I'm going to bring them Lynn. Let's just talk about the what was supposed to be the big match of the weekend man city versus Tottenham at seven thirty AM east coast time that was a rough one to wake up to Jesus Christ. But it was not the goal fest. We thought it was going to be the match ended one nil Tottenham had a shout for a penalty. But this was a true test for city to bounce back after being knocked. Out of the Champions League. And like, you know, titled like the centurions of last year, they've proven that you know, they're not going to get knocked down there. They're going to get back up that song again down. But I that that's them. That's that. They're good to go there fine. Yeah. I woke up for this before work, and I was hoping for a goal fist to keep me away in in that early fucking morning. But obviously feel folded the youngster the true Manchester City academy graduate opened the scoring in the fifth minute. After a gorgeous ball to guero who nodded across goal for Phil fold into dive on the bag of it. And that woke me right up. I thought we were in for another tree another fucking crazy outing, and it kind of let me down afterwards yet there was action sprinkled through ios open game again. But I just don't think you can go from the performance that city Tottenham gave him Wednesday to the weekend in replicate that. But I thought the biggest story line was the Spurs losing a Hugo Louise early in the in the first half with a replacement coming on and ending up doing a pricky fucking damn good job for the Spurs. Especially in the latter stages of the game when Manchester City was just piling on. So I think this can be considered a huge win for pet. Manchester City showed them that. Yeah. They lost on aggregate on Wednesday. But they are still the better team. They showed the world that yet the Premier League is obviously my bread and butter. This is what I do. And there does not seem to be any signs of letting up leading the foot off the gas in the Premier League for Manchester City, which bodes huge fears for me today Wednesday for the Manchester Darby 'cause I don't think it's going to be pretty we'll we'll get the may just United shortly because the geez. Sus Christ Martin we've got a lot of talk about. But I will say the biggest stand out for me was the unselfishness of Sergio guero in the box because he had an open header in under like Manuel. Pellegrini. I could totally see it just it didn't seem like a guero. Just a lob it off to the youngster Phil photo. And so that was really I was just like no fucking white. Because when I saw him wide open the box. I'm like, oh where was going to score back. Then the easy to see him. Like, you know, just like we'll join over. I was just I was a loss for words. Martin. I didn't know what even to say. I was just like, oh, this is this is the like, I think it finally hit me like this is the pep effect. I think I've finally seen it in action like live. Yeah. And and not managing that the level of Skillet. Took to look at the ball understand where your position is where the goal is read Goldie is in that split second of time decide to not put the ball net. But to pass it over to a streaking teammate. I mean that level of skill is just the Trojans. It's disgusting. It's it's scary and Sergio aggressively almost almost perfected that shit. And obviously that was the goal that put city ahead and kept them ahead. But it was not for lack of trying by sun by Lucas. There were plenty of fucking Spurs opportunities. I thought the Spurs could have capitalized on three to four of them, especially son. I thought Edison didn't much better job in this game than he did last game. But to me, I still think there may be a little bit of concern for Edison. Obviously he has a phenomenal record at man. Chester city. I think he has is leading the clean sheets along with Allison. But his positioning is super fucking for forward. You saw it in the Tottenham game in the week last week in the Champions League. When son got the first goal. How far Audi is? And it looks like son and co were getting closer and closer to hitting the back of their nets and just through personal mistakes or Edison goalkeeping they were camped out. So I don't think city was the dominant force. But I do think they deserve this victory at the end of the day. Maybe guero it was for twenty was a little, you know, had a little bit of schmead who's feeling a little, you know, little lightheaded. What's the so I don't know a great win for city. I don't think Tottenham should be. If you're Tottenham fan. Don't be beating yourself up. I mean, you're into the semi finals of the Champions League dog like. Like, I don't think there's any. Yeah. I don't see you have you know, going back to the ad again. It's it's I mean city losing it at the ad is like literally impossible on her pep and even before about greenie, so Martin let's talk about the other Manchester team we have to we have to. All right here, we go four nil. Everton Man United at Goodison Park. Martin. I'm gonna let you have the floor. What the hell happened? Oh, is it complete embarrassment of from start to finish? I woke up for this game. Accidentally. I thought it was on eleven. So thank God. I woke up at eight in put it on immediately regretted it from the absolute beginning, the Everton infield, the Everton forward in the Everton defence were clearly v first and the second to the ball. They were thinking ahead. They were thinking with stayed with attack. They were thinking out muscle help play out speed this man, Chesnut teams. And they did that from the first whistle to the laugh and in all honesty. It was embarrassing. It was pathetic end soldier had basically that to say in the post game presser. But there are a few instances where you could just see the absolute gaping Foltz cracks in this Manchester United team. One is in the mid field with Fred manage pug combination. It's it's pretty trash it appears that managed cannot only play as the central holding midfielder defensive midfielder or with Andrew Herrera. He cannot play with Martha. He cannot play with Fred he cannot play with Pereira. He James just real quick all she like manage can't track. Anybody like he literally disliked people. It is run by him. And I think it goes it was the second goal that guilty secured since strike if you watch that goal. You can watch the ball being spread out to him on the left hand side of the field. He is the closest clar-. He's about ten yards from gopher cigarettes in and then the to Manchester United central defenders were tucked in behind manage expecting manage to pressure the ball as literally anybody who's played a wink of soccer with no pressure the guy with a ball. But he does the opposite. He sits back he leads cigarettes takes takes face and really get to about five yards outside of the eighteen and Ripa discussing curler into the bottom corner of the net, and that shot should have never been loud to happen. Guilty cigarettes in should have never been allowed to press forwards. There was no pressure on the ball. I don't know why the fuck manage along with the the defenders behind were not pressuring him. If I am a Senator defender on icy my holding midfielder stand off from the other teams probably most dangerous player who is known to have a wicked right-foot. I would be screaming pressure him. Get the fuck on him. And there was nothing. There was no communication. There was no sense of urgency end that goal was in microcosm to the plethora of Manchester. United problems defense split open immediately from a wide spreading ball, no pressure on the ball. Handler no pressure on the ball handler as he dribbles. Eight takes his shot knows chance of deflecting the ball or getting in front of the ball. And it's just the perfect shot to. Hey, could not do anything about that ball. And after that manages felt worse and worse and the United team the United players there's spirits fell. And so did their performance and what I have decided their performance falling funky doing that. There's a reason you are paid big money. It's so you don't get. Affected by your poor spirit. Your performance is what matters. I don't care if you're feeling all shitty. And sorry for yourself as long as you're trying. You're fucking hardest. I don't care if Manchester United loses four zero I really don't if if mansions nodded played the way they played against PS g in the second leg and lost four zero. Fuck it. I do not care at least I know they left everything on the field. But that was sadly, not the case. It hasn't been the case. And I think all the Gomersall are really strikes truth when he says, I am going to be successful for Manchester United. There are players on this team that are not going to be part of that successful team. And I think he hit the nail on his head. I texted you Sunday night after Sunday afternoon after the game. And I said there needs to be a coal there needs to be urge there needs to be a famous there needs to be a vendor's whatever they knows endgame. Whatever that concern. Yeah. More. Well, you know, what I'm talking about where like half the fucking population dies. That's what needs to happen at Manchester United and don't restrict it to the dressing room. Bring it up to the staff level to the executive staff level because I guarantee you when an apple is rotten it as rotten to the core. I read a super fucking interesting article about how the glazers now want to emulate Liverpool and their their success story. So to speak about how they brought in Klopp how they did not target huge superstar names, and that is what does need to happen. But before all that needs to happen. There needs to be a coal pep. Did it when he came to mand city clocked it over the years at Anfield a successful teams? These successful managers are allowed to bring in the players. They want they want not the club ones. Not the board wants they want and. Dorney allowed to do that soldier needs to be allowed time three to four years of not going after the most expensive signing the fucking flashier signing by a fucking Declan rice from West Ham by fucking Michael Keane, from Everton by these kids, these English kids these kids who had proven that they can play in the print and start filtering them in you have to look at this long term. Don't get at it like immediate success like Chelsea Manchester City to extent. They can fucking plugging in play easy peasy because that's how their team was built in the first iteration of city in Chelsea plug in a great manager. Plug in these great players make the system work teams like arsenal Liverpool. Manchester United or much different. They need a solid foundation in if this is the biggest part or biggest piece of praise I can give to Liverpool than I don't know what it is because Liverpool under cloth and under the the family the American family whose name is escaping. My head right now who owns them. They have done a phenomenal job of looking to the long-term looking at the players. They want for the long term that type of culture. And that's what teams like mine and yours need to emulate because we are not Chelsea we are not city. We can't get the best players put system yet. The best coach it has to be thawed out. And Manchester United are seeing all the cracks in their attempts of plug n play over the past year's end and truly that four zero defeat. Pardon me is okay with it fucking show. How shit it is show? How rotten it is fucking time to fix this mess, the Manchester United way the old school way. Not this new age way nominee. Yeah. Holy shit. Martin you just sorry. Sorry. Just sorry to still pent-up Chit. I just I didn't want to interrupt with the same time. Like, I I was just gonna be like, I'll just you know. I didn't know what to do. I was just like, you know, I I wanted to myself. I guess. Yeah. Just to sit here and just fuck myself. I just wanted to, you know, get up on your soapbox. You're off it. Now. I'm glad you got it all out. I think you know. I think you're I think you're right. Okay. Char had come out and had very damning words for the players. He said if you wanna play at this club, it has to mean more, and I think that's you know, from a guy who knows it first hand for what it means. The flavor Manchester United you think he would be the first. No, no. I just wanted to say credit to Everton because they came out that play they showed up they played phenomenally. I mean, I I forget who it was. There was some commentators said when THEO Walcott scoring against you. What are you doing and as an arsenal fan? It's like where to fuck was this and also. Yeah. Like this fucking guy who's supposed to be our next on who. So on res number which I why? Yeah. People forget. Anyway, I am also a bit guilty secrets the fan because he was a swan, and he was from Swazi well weezer mice, Linda, but you know, what I mean? But Martin do you think it has to do like you're saying there has to be this purged this book in great exodus of players. And I think it's being shown because before it was like, oh, it's all marina this Marino's fall. He's the cancer. He's what's wrong. And then soon as soaks are comes in who's kind of like, you know, a part of the club seems like kind of a nice guy. Approachable a player is. Well, I mean, marina was a player by thing. You know, I think so people relate more to soak shar, they actually know his name is terms of legendary status. You know what I'm saying? And there was kind of like, you know, he had that whole was like eight game winning streak or ten that crazy record as manager coming in into the Premier League in the feels like it's kind of the lights gone out. It's kind of deflated and the players of kind of resorted back to like how it was. You know, just what was it like three or four months ago with Marino like three months ago? So I think it's definitely an attitude thing, you know, I think these players are just, you know, not up to scuff. And I think there has to be like you said the gotta go you gotta get. I think I think it was a Gary Neville or in a couple of other United players have come out and comments as saying like these guys don't deserve to wear these fucking jerseys that got a fucking go. Yeah. And I lodge Gary Neville whose commentary after the game. And then some of his other commentary on on a later Sky Sports show. And if you are embarrassing your former players to the extent that this Manchester United team is guys let's talk about sex good sex. Remember the days when you were always ready to go.

You have to realize something is like I said deeply wrong with this club this club truly needs truly needs a spring cleaning by whoever that famous Netflix spring cleaner. Is Mary TOTO Mary. Coco marie. I have no idea. All right. So move up can know what I'm talking about. Marie cocoa funkaway. Soclean. I don't know. I haven't seen it. But one of the Teamster. Okay. I just hear about it on the radio like every fucking day. So I know the content right? All right, man. It's fine. Twenty nineteen. Yeah. True. True. Big fan of Mary toe cocoa. But. Gary Neville's point was something that I truly agreed with he went through the Manchester United squad, and basically said who should remain who should go and let me just run through a couple of these names with you. The heya obviously upping stays smuggling. Let him the fuck go Jones. Let him the fuck. Go Linden loss. Let him stay actually encourage them to stay. He's he's trying to become a good defender. Luke Shaw, stay pulp Hauge. Stay madij dawn. Fred gone marchisio. Stay Lukaku, gone Radford. Stay the lawn gone fucking. Pereira gone Alexi Sanchez, gone Malta gone Jesse then guards day, so literally out of this fucking fifteen team fifteen person lineup that went to Everton four or five of them should actually be wearing a Manchester United color, and and that should be a fucking huge warning sign where the common fan like me. And you understanding can absolutely see that fucking Chris Mullin should not be playing in the same defense that Rio Ferdinand played in that that's just fucking that should be a absolute fact mattress should not be in the same position that Paul schools was Lukaku should not hold would Wayne Rooney's position fucking. Fred should not hold Fletcher's position. I I can go through the list that even the worst Manchester United players of the past things need to be. Change in a Manchester United. Yes, bef- before we get to you know, my team are endless. You know? Talk about another red team. We're going to get the arsenal. Who don't you worry? We're going to get the fucking gunners Liverpool with a confident win over Cardiff City who are fighting for their lives in the relegation battle. If you look at the stat sheet Liverpool dominated this every single way when autumn with the ridiculous just fucking hit in the box that ball mice. He'll be traveling in another penalty given to Mohammed Salah, you know, all send out all the dive memes, you one and James Milner who is more clutch than that in between water at the bar. I think I tweeted out that you know, you need that like little lake sneaky water in between drinks because if now you'll just be fucking it'll get better it'll get ugly fast. So you know, it was crazy watching this game going. No, no at halftime. The liverpool. Cool in the past this late in the season or other teams competing for the title would have faltered, and I just never had doubt in them are and they just look so good on the ball. You just could like you could just smell the goals coming. Yeah. Man. It's really awesome. Watching this Liverpool team. In this late stage of of the prim where all stakes are on the line, literally if you draw points, you're out, and they keep raising to the task they keep fucking getting it done. However, it needs to be done. And this game was no fucking different. They dominated this game. And obviously zero zero at halftime, but you could just smell. You could sense. This goal was coming. This Liverpool goal was coming in. And then it just happened. Then the floodgates opened. And basically, that's what Liverpool is so fucking good at just hammering on the opposition until they break, and then they're going to break again. And again, and again, I n and yeah, I just think this Liverpool team is a really really fucking solid squatters a whole from their obvious starting eleven their defense is probably one of the strongest defenses in the premiere. Lead to the midfield to their attack. But also their bench is fucking stacked Rhett to go. Always coming on trying to change something in the game. And this was no fucking different urine. Klopp has also lenders at Liverpool firing hord fast hot. And I it's just get me. Happy. Get me excited to see how the fuck this toddler is gonna end up because right now, both the Manchester City and the Liverpool or rising to task fucking getting done. Fucking scorned. A lot of losses. Lot of pretty fucking goals in lot of dirty fucking goals against their opposition enforcing the amulet forcing this other team to make mistake. And now all the fucking pressure is on city. They obviously play tomorrow Liverpool got their job done they break to this weekend. And I gotta congratulate fucking Milner on being the most. Cluj penalty taker since Andre his pillow, probably even a better than Andre his pure, sure. Sure, I'm pretty sure if James Milner heard that he'd be like ride may don't even put me in that kind of that. Right. It'd be fucking denied he'd be like. Okay. Okay. But I'm not really that. Good. I appreciate it. Like, okay. Thanks, James Milner down to earth. I wonder like how like him and his I don't know if he's married, but how him and his wife would like fight like James. You didn't take out the trash like ROY? I'm so sorry. I'll do that. Now. I don't I can't get mad at that. James? All right. Like, I can't imagine like them fighting and be like James get your feet off the coffee table you stupid. Fuck of right. Love me. Right release. Sorry. Yeah. No. Yeah. Totally right here. I'll go get into offi table right now. Let me go to the store and get us a new coffee table. I've absolutely ruinous one love soiled completely soiled it. Yeah. James is a fucking stand up. Dude. I'm just you know, I'm so excited for I mean, I don't want this season to end. You know what I mean? But I just I want it. It's a game of thrones. Like, I need to know who wins it. You don't he wanted? And but you need to know how it ends, exactly. Like when I saw Jack Leeson king Joffrey tell me how it ends come on. Just tell me how fucking ends, but you know, throw. Yeah. Dude, man. I can't game of thrones fucking vendors endgame. There's so many good things happening right now Jesus Christ. But let's move. Let's know congrats Liverpool. I don't see you guys slip in the rest of the season. I don't I don't mean as upon no pun intended. I'm just saying I see you guys going. It's man cities titled to lose and Martin. We'll get to our predictions on the Manchester Darby, but I I'm very interested to see what you have to say. You don't have to hear for me. Nobody wants to hear what I have to say about Manchester City, smoking, Manchester United. Let's let's move on to another realm of paying Kevin and not my room of pain. Let me side step this fucking shit that I have to deal with tomorrow into what you had to deal with on fucking Sunday. I'm sorry Saturday loose. Arzu sunday. You're right. You're. Ars? No versus Crystal Palace chance to move into third place. And like my dad loves to say or SNL always snapping snatching defeat at the jaws of victory. Kev, fucking added. Let me hear it. It's the hope that kills you. It really is. It's just you know, it's an that's an all time arsenal quo in late. The thing is like I was bragging all year about how fucking gray our home record is just throw that out the window. Just toss it rewrite the fuck in history books. Wipe the whiteboard. This is I just gotta say fuck Mustafay. Like, I'm not going to put all the blame on him. Biggest waste of thirty five million dollars ever Martin like I'm just trying to think of things more valuable. I could get with thirty five million dollars. I could have like thirty dollars. I can have thirty five million peeps for Easter. I'd rather have that. I'd rather have thirty five million double A batteries. Actually, you'd only probably get like ten of those five million. Actually, you can probably get more than thirty five million six if you were to buy looses or you could buy. Like, a normal person and get more than thirty five million or. Thirty million beards. I'm just trying to think what you could buy thirty five million. That would not be missed offi because pretty much anything you buy with that would be more more than Mustafay Jesus Christ. I hate I hate thinking about like the actual price of players because it makes me think of oh shit. How much can you buy with thirty five million dollars? And I just go down this wormhole of thinking what if I could buy a person for thirty five million dollars. You're going to hear something even more depressing. I saw on the news today. Some twenty four year old hit the fuck in mega jackpot lottery for seven hundred eighty million dollars in go fucking. So he's a piece of shit. Yeah. Yeah. They should never leave reveal the photo of whoever won the lottery Gleich. That's my big thing. If I if I ever win the lottery like I'm just going to go hide forever. Because I of course, you're gonna get robbed like that makes sense. But I wish Mustafay would win the fucking lottery. So I can rob him Jesus. Fuck like, so let's break this game down when Ben tech as Gordon against you. Remember him Martin, Ben Peccais? Twenty sixteen Kev. Did he score versus? Oh, he did. Oh, no. Donovan, you know. And then you're like, oh, well Oto gets on the go scoresheet nice one. But it just we just got like dominated this whole game. And then when you have wolford's Czaja James MacArthur right after another just dropped my jewel shit. I'm drinking it with my LaCroix PBR. So oh, I hate you so much more than Liverpool right now. Kevin that's hard. That's actually. That's a full. Hey, it's difficult. But the fact that like we brought it within a goal with seventy seven minutes. I'm still like we're gonna lose this game. Like, we haven't looked gray this entire Madge. And if you just look at like, this is such an arsenal stat line. Are you ready for this Martin? Yeah. We had seventy three percent of the possession. But Crystal Palace had more shots more shots on target. And it's it's so fucking typical arsenal, you know. And I hate to say it. I just you know, there's got to be a lot has to go. I'd like I really thought lane has been doing great for us like our goalie, but he just getting no help I feel like. I I don't even know where to fucking begin with this club. And like I like at least we're in the European league semi final. Which is, you know, saying something like it's like a nice. But like, I really think that this in top four race, whatever you're gonna call. It is just become a big game of hot potato like now, or like, you know, like back in like middle school, you'd be like with your girlfriend like you hang up. No, you hang up. No, you hang up. That's what they're doing right now. But it's a three way you hang up. I. And it's a real shitty version of Dan to it's it's everybody doesn't want to hang up. I that's the problem. Nobody wants to get into these champion league spots arsenal Tottenham Chelsea or United. And everybody's just trying to shit the bed harder than the other teams and ours. No, I gotta say Kev. I was the exact opposite of you. When you guys pulled a goal bag on through ozo-. I was just like okay arts an arsenal was at was called them Hartson like Oso fucking dummy. I myself, I truly did think that you guys would be able to pull a back at least get a draw out of it. Because of how strong you have been under unite entry at home at the emerets. But I truly think that what did you end was the missing of one player, and this is gonna be real fucking shitty. Because this player is no longer with you come the end of the season. I think the loss of Ramsey who you guys haven't had in the past. Fucking hurting you because as shit lung would have it. He has really been coming into his own under unite Emory justify talking bail and who came in who fucking replaced Aaron Ramsey. Fuck L nanny, and then jenkinson featured in the fucking midfielders to. So. So it's it's almost like two steps forward. One step back for our snow and feels like and this is a game. I really thought you guys were going to win. I continue to think until like the eight minute that you guys were going to win or draw. And like, you said Kev, you know, what they say about arsenal. Saying always try law get in God it the IT crowd. Anyway, one of the greatest episodes of the it crowd. God damn I love that show then in between God fucking image winners fair. You know, I just couldn't fucker because my Cox was too big. Simon's mom, stone, cold FOX and the one guy is a pedophile. What do they call? It's so funny. I can't remember what it's going. They either call him a Pedo or or gay, right? Yeah. He's gay. Yeah. God if you ever watch in between just stop what you're doing. I think it's on Netflix such a fucking. Of like three seasons of TV shows every single one is fan fucking tastic if you'd like British humor, it's it's super weird. It's so weird. But it's so funny. Oh my God. When he pukes all over the kitchen, so. After drawing I love you in chalk on her driveway. God guys, if you know, you know. Man that that pains me so much that like Ramsey is. Now, the answer that arsenal needs and he's fucking gone. You know, how much it just so arsenal? Can we please get rid of any all these old Arsene Wenger who thought we're going to be fucking wonder kids and just suck. Like, I get it on any that great goal against Barcelona in the Champions League. We still lost like four one people. Forget. I people about the reality of that game to like, oh, well, people are so still hanging onto the member owned any had that ridiculous strike is. Like yet. Do you know, we got our asses kicked in by Barcelona that game, man? I I really don't I really do like Emory, and I still think he's done a fucking fantastic job with his first season with arsenal. But this is just this is just pitiful this whole away for this whole like getting down on themselves this there so seems to be some lingering winger 'isms this. Oh, yeah. This needs a purge. I mean, the style is still good. I still love how we're playing is. Just like, I think it's just the attitude Sony's like some, you know, someone needs to guess lap on the ass or something, you know. But all right. Let's move on to another team who decide who decided that they don't wanna win in in being the Champions League Chelsea versus Burnley to to affair Gonzalo. He we had the weirdest celebration where he ended up getting his face stuck in some titties. Good good for him. I guess but this was a fucking goal fest till four goals in the first twenty four minutes, and then it just became Chelsea doing every single thing. They fucking canned and try and win this game and just couldn't pull through. So does anyone want to win this or win the top four spot? I don't think so. No, absolutely not especially after those. From in the in the beginning of the game. I was just like, okay, everybody else has lost its only Chelsea chose is gonna fucking somehow sneak in with sake. Sorry into the top four hell, they might even get third place. And I don't even know what to believe Israel, and then fucking my boy Jeff Hendricks scored a rip tastic fuckin- volley from the edge of the eighteen pass Kappa. And the game was on. I was just like okay shit. Nobody wants to win this obviously Chelsea God two goals back in quick succession. And at that point. I was like, okay. Chelsea woke up the games done games. Over Burnley got a back. And I gotta say both of Burnley's goals came off set pieces. Joses defense look fragile the entire game when it came to set pieces. Once again kept my feel like a broken record here. This is. Another fucking team who almost needs a purge date, coal get this is a team that has a bunch of players that are lingering from previous managers. Fuck it. I think some of these players go back three managers at Chelsea. So this Josie team needs to be fixed. I don't know of saris the one to do the job correctly in this game. Again, this should have been easy Chelsea victory. But it was not. And it seemed like Burnley his back to what Burnley does best. Eat worms in defend defend defend and score off set pieces. Fucking welcome back to the big leagues Burnley. I think every time I see Burnley's score off a set piece Martin. I just wanted. I just think of that mean more it's like the hand slapping the nut button. That's me. Yeah. Yes. Bringing me m- humor to the podcast. Yeah. Everytime. Burnley scores off a consent piece. I'm just like. Yes. That's the men to be. Yeah. It's what it's what Burnley does. It's I don't know. I mean nice draw for Burnley. I mean, but Chelsea yeah. There's a whole sorts of problems going on here and alleviates rude who I might say has the same amount of European goals. Top European goalscorer as Lino Lino messy ten in ten just saying. Yeah. I feel like we're gonna look back in two routes going to be one of the most underrated strikers of all time. I'm just saying I really love he had fucking talk. How important it was in the World Cup? We're gonna look back on that ten years from now I realize one we're under appreciated geniuses. And so it is. So is route is World Cup performance. Should put him in the hall of infamy at the very least. He was brilliant, quietly brilliant infamy. I is that the right? I think that's bad. Isn't it? It it sounded right? If you don't know what that is don't Google it. Okay. Just don't stop stop right now. You wanna title Montpellier, FA cups, an arsenal? I mean World Cup. I think the guy he's like, I think the third highest goalscorer in France history or fourth something like that. The guy's a fucking ledge. I don't care. He's the most beautiful man to do it. So fuck all y'all preach. Kevin prank. You. Defend alluvia. Do I got I I mean, I have his arsenal jersey. So I have to. Imagine a Livia in the center of a top three with Alba in lock on each side. I would fuck with formations nut hit the button. All right, good. Let's moshe. It is scared. The Popper Ono song. Paul martin. Let's move into some fan questions. Are you ready? Yeah. I am. All right. This is coming from our Instagram. Give us a follow at lads podcast. This is a question from last week, which I it was sent to our messages not like when they answered the question on our stories. So I forgot about it. But I screamed shot it. And I said I would say it for this episode of here. The fuck I am ready. Yeah. This is from C Molinski. He says guys with the Drake curse striking down yet. Another time. This is from a man city fans. So he's referring to the Champions League match. He says, I think this brings up an important subject preparation. What is the emergency protocol? If I'm scrolling social media before one of my teams games in see a pick of Drake wearing jersey of one of the players on said team. Do I not watch? Do. I not watch the game. Do I just carry on? Do I grab a go bag and just head to the hills of North Carolina and incomplete in completely ditch social media like Martin oughta gather, I don't know. I actually have a better solution than all of those. Although you are more than welcome to join me in my hermit lifestyle. Last push a t the entire game. That is the only metal heat and override the Drake Kerr's pushing t basically makes drank a powerless. Yeah. He he just says baby's name. And Drake's just like, oh, curses gone. Yeah. People forget that Drake. Did a black face. So don't forget. Yeah. So pushing it. Yeah. Push push a called shit out. Yeah. Dude. When you see that? That's just a that's just bad news bears. I just I get the willies chills. And when a team loses in a bad manner. I'm just like, I just wait for social media on Twitter. Just a spam of pictures with Drake with one of the players. It's phenomenal. It's phenomenal. All right next. Question comes from our Twitter. Follow us at lads podcast. Lads underscore podcast, whatever Frank Lucas at underscore Mamo. Chon underscore. I think I said that right? Do. Do you think? Manchester United will lose any players as the rumors are saying, and then he hasn't parentheses pug, Marcio or rash furred. So Marin I'm under the impression you think you're going to keep all of them. I've been hearing a lot. I just saw on ESPN FC today that Marcial was apparently out not officially, but that's like the big hot topic. But out of these three who do you think is most likely I think I was we've seen rumors and whisperings of all three of his players the most notably being punked by Real Madrid rash for to Barcelona and before marchisio signed his his contract extension back in November. It was more Sheldon PS. Gee, I think rash furred is main born Umbro read, I think he's gonna stay. I don't think any club can take him away in all honesty. I think Radford has that old school mindset that that you stay with your fucking club. More shale. He just signed a contract extension in November. So I really don't see him leaving the only player that I could see leaving is Paul pug, and that may be incredibly fucking clear with you. This is obviously gonna create some type of controversy but out of those three players, Paul Pogue. But is who I'm most content with letting go and the reason being is because I know, for fact, Marcus rash, furred bleeds, red he born in Manchester. He's been a Manchester United player is entire life. I know he is fully committed to the Manchester United team and fuck it use all how he played under Louis van Gaal. You saw how he played under Jose Marino. UCLA plays undersoil char. The boy tries is fucking hardest. The boy has played through sickness in injury. I don't see him leaving marchisio. He just signed a contract. Extension logical thinking says he ain't leaving. Hauge? I dunno dude. I could seem leaving in the next couple of years. I hope he sticks around is a huge part of soil Kiara vision. But I think he is most likely to leave, and I'm not all that cut up about it, yet Marshall is an interesting one. I can't read the guy because he doesn't smile. So I don't know. But I feel grassroot will stay in pug buzz, also iffy. But the next question from Belan betted Bennett at Belan underscored Bennett, he said who would you rather have on your team in defense Van Dyke? I guess he's the best need no other options. Okay. I guess this is a pick them so in the midfield. Martin. Would you rather have pug, bud, debris Ericsson hazard or Kante while I guess Conde is is very different from the other those hazard. Yeah. He's hazard plays more on the wing. So I guess it would be between Paul by the pro in Ericsson. I that's that's actually a hard tossup. I would if I could get a healthy, debris. I'd probably pick to Brenna. Yeah. I was about say that if I could get a healthy to broin out. I'd pick the Brown. But this this year has been horrible for him. Unfortunately in terms of injuries. So I got it. I I gotta choose Derek in. Kevin. I gotta choose Ericsson. If I'm taking everything into context, I think Ericsson is the most consistently best player out of all of them right now. Yeah. Ericsson's been top notch men. He's been fucking phenomenal. So I would have to be you know, right there with ya. I think he's just so crucial to that Tottenham side. And just not in creative goals. Just you name it. I mean that little from whoville whoville. Does it all so and then forwards sterling Sante Mondays Salah, Lukaku rasping, son or Lorenza? I think those final few. I'm not too sure why they're included. But I mean, I guess on. But I don't think kitchen giggles. I jus I can I do too for. Of this question to do to for I'm gonna pick sterling and son. No, I like that. I would I would have picked sterling as my number one. I would probably pick sterling in money. I fucking love. There's those two are just so fucking bad ass. I would love to have them on my team. Dear just so dynamic, and they can create it can score and they're just so athletic. It's unbelievable. So. Schindler, dude. Sterling and Monay where son is he's kind of a slower player if that makes sense like he slows the play down where Rehim beats you because he's so fucking quick not just physically, but mentally he knows what the fuck is going on before you do and same with Monay. So just because of a little bit of variety. I'm gonna I'm gonna go with sterling in and sunny. I like it. I like it a lot. All right last question is from our discord channel if you like to join just messages, so one of our social media's our Facebook, which is pop in. I think that's almost up to fourteen hundred. I think you've passed fourteen hundred followers on that Twitter. We've would we just passed the thousand which is wild and Instagram, which you know, that's a lot harder to do social media. But were around five hundred with that join our discord channel, it's a place where people who like the show who like soccer who like drinking who like other sports in American sports, just come out to hang out and talk shit. The question is from Brian Inge Elino, he said, what's the most German name of all time? And I had actually responded in the chat because this is a conversation before and more in. I said bastions Schweiger good boy good, man. You have learned from the soccer garage. Well, Kevin bashed in. Yeah. I gotta agree wholeheartedly. Yeah. I mean. I can't think of a more German name. I mean, that's pretty up there. A couple of people made jokes said Adolf, and I'm like. That's true. A couple a couple of other people. Oh cringes. Mc basketball, one of our discord channel people said the most dusty of all time is close Joan hunter lar-. It is. I mean, put this in the honorable mentions for Germans. Miroslav closer. Good one hitter. She might go. Faulk in Michael Ballack like that doesn't sound German. But by the way, the commentators used to say his name that's on a German shit like black and that cinema lull. Low bit of German fear through me Marin per murder soccer. Great. Yes. Yes. That's that is a solid Germany the cunning stunt said France on Thuan Beckenbauer Beckenbauer. Yeah. Yeah. And Mathis I can't pronounce that guy's name. Yeah. It's Lothar mafiose M A T T H a US with the funny. A with the two dots. I don't know what that's called. But it's called something when they put the fancy like the you with the two dots above it. I don't know what that's called the fancy dogs. Yes. Of course, ES. But I think I think my winner has to be bashing swine Steiger, which doesn't mean pig killer. I thought it did. But I guess not I told you that for years. I. That's such a bummer, dude. Like. Fuck. I mean, but yeah. Bachelors wanting Salgar definitely most German name of all time, we should do that like go through like, what's the most English names of all time? Probably John Terry, John Kerry or a Wayne bridges. Knows that name. Well, don't you boy Heo you drink water? Yeah. Daniels drink water. That's that's a classic British once. God. That's that's so fucking good. All right. Well, guys, that's our episode. We will see you Friday. I will be doing a wedding that day. But Thursday night, we will be with you to cover everything Premier League. Over the Manchester. Darby Marne was your prediction for the Manchester Darby real quick before we close out. Ooh. Three zero Manchester United. Okay. So mantra. So so Liverpool Liverpool fans Virgil Van Dyke. Adequate this week said like they need to do. So. Yeah. Talking about Manchester United. They need to do themselves a favor, not us or whatever. And also so all of Liverpool. My God Martin. I mean, you do want to win this game. Right. Yeah. But I know we're probably not like it's that famous. Would you rather die or be killed? And I I don't know. Kevin. I I really don't know. Would you rather? Would you rather be hurt or injured? I'd rather be hurt because you can play through hurt. I think that's how that works. That's what my old football coach told me, at least, I don't know. He probably lied to me. Yeah. It sounds like a football coach. All right. Well, love you guys. And we will see you Friday. Bye.

And we are loud Americans discussing soccer better known as lads. Today is February thirteenth twenty nineteen from south Philadelphia. And oh my God. Martin. I just I just bought the worst beer ever. Holy shit and Charlotte, North Carolina. I am drinking hemp tales malt, liquor beverage. Oh why? I don't. It's eight percent how alcohol made with real hemp seeds. I I I I don't know why I got this. It just tastes like, really bad. We'd Kevin what the fuck is wrong with you. Why would you ever think that would be a good bearded drink the Gami, man? Have a cool can says citrus gold, and you know, the goal. I get sit. It's like, you know, you see that gold premium in you're like man, I must be good. Honestly, the worst thing I've ever drank on lads Tallboy in his eight percent. I just fucked up in the worst kind of way you're going to be sick drunk. Oh god. This is this is horrible. If I'd give this a ranking. I may just give it a three. And the reason I'm giving it that high is because of the alcohol content like at least I'll get fucked up from it chooses rice at sure that's already stick with something safe during an year, try to fantastic. Oh, it's like I'm about to sip, something good. And then it just like we'd like I'm about to taste like something that should be like citrusy like AOL or something. And then it's just like I'm tasting. I just chewed. We'd from like a blunt. This is absolutely disgusting. I guess newbie Scooby snacks all in my mouth. Okay. Quizzed shutout high press podcast. I'm sure I gotta ask them about this at the this. A beer of choice. All right, guys. Welcome in. We have a lot to talk about today. We have breezy Dortmund blowing three nil lead in fifteen minutes, which I didn't think was possible. But you know, it's beautiful game. Anything's possible. We have Real Madrid. Smacking their brothers and half Athletico Madrid Murata still sucks. We are also to all our city fans and to our Chelsea fans, mostly are Chelsea fans. We wanna let you know that we will be covering the obliteration of your club, the complete destruction of your club by Manchester City, bore going to be really delicate. We're we're going to open up with it when we get to the Premier League part. But let you know if we're going to be as polite as possible because I know the wounds, you're still you're still healing. So we're gonna do our best to tiptoe around that and not like just poor salt in your wound. So I just wanna let you guys know that. We will be that'll be the main talking point of the podcast. What's silver? I think Martin said before we start it. We're gonna rip that band aid off, right, bud. Oh, yeah. I'm sorry. Guys. I was actually with Chelsea fan this entire weekend. So I had some firsthand knowledge about how you guys are taking it. I know it's not well, we'll be gentle probably not it's going to be late in the podcast. So we'll be kind of drunk by then and hopefully you are to ease that pain because that was doozy. But Cav you wanna jump right into the headlines with Aaron Ramsey being the all-time most paid British player in the world ever what the fuck? Yeah. This one really took me by surprise in. The reason took me by surprise wasn't the event assigning we've known that for a while. It just hasn't been like official official. You know, it's not Instagram official. You know, like your seven new Facebook official Instagram official. Yes, it wasn't. It wasn't Instagram official yet that he has signed for you Ventas. But the deal had been announced by BBC reporter. I forget who was I posted it on Facebook is name like. Credible source that are in Ramsey is going to be paid four hundred plus k a week. What and become the all time paid British player in just history. And when I saw that you Ventas was getting Orrin Ramsey on a free transfer. I was like, wow, look event is doing it again, just stealing debt buyer. Munich are brilliant at this just getting free transfers and getting players at very cheap rates like Biron getting a HAMAs Rodriguez or. Douglas, Kosta Goni Ventas all these players, you know, on like who are like world class on amazing deals in Ramsey. I wouldn't put him in like world class. But I think mean mar- you me, and you would agree. He's pretty good. He's like he's above average and went on his best day. He can be pretty spectacular. But four hundred thousand a week that is Alexi Sanchez that is Mets Ozil money and I've had ton of my arsenal. Friends, DM me and talk to me, and they're all saying the same thing. Like like we like Ramsey, but he we don't like them that much like Jesus Christ. Yeah. I mean, if he I believe if my math, and this website is correct. He is now these sixth most paid player on the planet Cristiano Renaldo. Secondly, oh messy is ranked first name. Moore's third bail was fourth pug is fifth making twenty five million. I'm sorry. Twenty nine point five million. And when this is all said and done Ramsey is gonna. Twenty six point eight million dollars from event is and I mean, look, I'm not gonna to Pogue horn. But I'm pretty sure Papa is a better player than Ramsey. And I think Ramsey's an excellent fucking player. I I'm kind of on the fence if easy Ventas quality still on the fence in that. I don't think that he really I don't wanna say the word deserves. But I don't think he is the type of player or the certain actual individual you think of when you think about the old lady, and you think about Venice. So the transferred sofas surprising, but these wages they're paying him. Just fucking blows my mind he is the sixth most paid player on this planet. He is the highest played British player in the world in history right now. And I don't think anybody last year would have or could have ever predicted Aaron Ramsey breaking these records. I do not understand you've entities mentality. Here usually they're incredibly fucking spark with their transfers, especially their free transfers. But this does not make sense to me. I do not think is skills. You know, relate to his wages that he'll be paid by Ventas. So this does not seem like a good bit of been business from Venice side, it just looks like another fucking Alexi Sanchez transferred. But for your vintage this time. Yeah. I mean, maybe Ventas was do they were due to have a bad transfer. And I think this might be it. I think event is was due to really mess up in the transfer market. And could Arn Ramsey be it they he'd be my first pick. So it just it's just so mind boggling like this. I like I said earlier like when they said they were getting Ramsey on a free transfer was like there, they go doing business again this my blow back in their face like really hard, and I'm already like just based off those wages and thinking of the great British players that have passed through the years, and the thing that he is now the all time paid, but also could be the market as well, obviously, the market has just exploded. And it might just be what the value is of getting players near that caliber. It's kind of like how Matt Stafford Jimmy Garoppolo NFL quarterbacks who are like above average are getting paid like the max, you know? So it could be one of those situations. But I think this is really. Bad business by Ventas? But only time will tell an arm Ramseys. Also going to be playing with a lot better players at you Ventas like I'm not trying to get shot at my team. So I think his level play will increase. I mean, that's just normal. When you playing around better players they should amplify your own play. So we I mean at face value. This looks bad. But I mean, the only times gonna tell. Yeah, I gotta agree with you to your point. When you said he's going to be playing with better players. I obviously kinda have to agree with that. Because that's just the logical fucking agreement. But on top of that he's also going to be playing that position that he wants his entire time under under vendor. He did not play the position that he really wanted. He was other out on the wing where he was stuck in the fucking midfield. Or he was sent to the other wing. And you've into says has even claimed that he never fucking was allowed to play in the position where he was the most dangerous. He's never played in that midfield. Three. So I think event is trying to unlock a different type of Ramsey than we have seen in the English Premier League. I think that I mean, this is the best culture for Ramsey to progress like this. So this might be fucking huge risk for you Ventas. This might be. I don't think it's a huge monetary loss for them. But it's a huge story right now. But hell it might fucking pay off. And we might eat all of our words where when Ramsey becomes just crucial to the squad. He's a super fucking creative player. He's he has vision as long as the day is long. He can pass he can shoot he can play with both feet. And when he's surrounded by quality, like semi Qadeer Emory ton- who have both gone to you Ventas and their skills and their level of play skyrocketed. So Ramsey is hoping to do the same thing play around Deborrah, new face Emory. Con Douglas cost over Nado fuck in panic. His. To be in the company of some fucking greats who are going to make sure that he lives up to his potential. So this this could work out fantastically for both Ramsey annual Ventas or could be a disaster for you vent as an Ramsey. But at this point only time will tell all I gotta say Kev arsenal nieces stopped sending their stars. I swear to God. It's like every year. You guys sell a a huge. It's just a really pain me to see Ramsey and Chesney win titles and trophies with event as knowing that are in their prime. All right. Let's move on to some boondocks league. Yes. Boomed is legal listeners. This one's for you guys. Because this has to be addressed breezy Dorman was playing Hoffman Hoffa Gnheim. See, I'm I'm brushing up on my Martin and Dorfman was up three nil goes by Sancho. I believe in Gertz. Up till the seventy fifth minute. And they blew in fifty minutes. A three nil victory, which in soccer is almost literally impossible. But in hockey is considered the worst lead you can have. So anyway, yeah, yeah. Yeah. We're early in hockey will do you? Remember in fi fo Kev, none none of us. Neither of us wanted to lead into one going into halftime because whoever was Lee to always they didn't always to get that three can't handle superstitious. German leaders would have had another would have been another three points ahead of Biron Biron after blowing this and only getting up point out of this Biron only sits five points behind the German giants are only five points behind doorman. So Dortmund, what are you doing? How do you blow? A three nil lead. And like I kept telling myself we've had critics myth. We've had other guests on here. Telling me this Dortmund's year, they're not going to blow it and with so many matches left to play Byron they're doing well. And the like they are literally like getting good at the right time. So I'm starting the lean. I know doorman is five points ahead. But Biron is looking awfully dangerous and are just like literally just tip toeing back to the top. Yeah. We had a question question last week that asked do think Byron is going to catch up Dortmund and win the bonus Liga, and I think both Kevin. I we're just like oh my God. It could very well happen Byron as a fucking powerhouse. And I think this just goes to show. The level that Byron can reach. They had a complete shit start to the season at at one point. They were what like twelve points behind Dortmund. And and now they are on that fucking high rise. They are getting better and better. And it's time for Dortmund to fuck in batter the hatches and make sure you get every single fucking last point. And this Dorman team has been fucking amazing this year. So this reminds me of a little bit of fucking nervousness getting into dorms head looking over their shoulder seeing that fucking giant Byron sitting in the backseat just waiting for them to slip up again because Byron is accustomed to this. They're they want to win their fifth fucking Boone's league title in road. They want that W. And I think I think if Byron did not have shit start to the season, they would be seven to ten points ahead of Dortmund right now because you look down the rest of the boons Lita doorman right now, it's fifty points Biron. Has forty five version Malkin gawk has forty two rebel Leipzig has thirty eight you take Byron out of the quesion imagine them in I and it's second-placed Dortmund with fifty mucking Lobbach with forty two rebel Leipzig with thirty eight. And if you look at those points, that's basically how second through fourth finishes every single year in the boonies Lita. So I think people might have been overreacted overreacting when they were looking at Dortmund and saying this Dortmund's year, this this can this is our destiny we are going to get back to that promised land. But then yet you take away Byron. And you look at the fucking standings. And it's the same standings the same difference in points as it usually is so Biron is just making up for lost, Tom. I wholeheartedly believe at this point Sarge all the doorman fans that barn is going to catch y'all and end up winning the league once again. Yeah. At least the Buddha's league is fun this year. That's my way. At least it's going to be relatively close and come on, man. Just get get Chris get Christian at a trophy. That's all I want. I want I want Christian to come to the Premier League with a boondoggle title. That'd be really cool. All right moving on to Lolita. Look Marin, we are being so good on this show. We are covering not only boondocks league we're moving onto LA Lita, cultural maybe Colt, dude so Real Madrid traveled to Madrid. And just spanked him three one cream Benza is having a resurgence and reminding everyone why he is one of the best number nine in the world. Even though we tend to make fun of them. He is still very very good and Real Madrid seem to be catching fire again at the right time. They do this every year Martin that we keep saying, we're doing this all. Earlier in the year where like Israel Madrid good. In earlier in the year that gave us reason to think that they are struggling things are not clicking. They are clicking now 'specially. Now, it's the last sixteen of the Champions League, which is their competition. I don't wanna hear Barcelona fans it is their competition. Real Madrid are on the right path. And they now only sit believe also like five points behind Barcelona something like that. It's remarkable that they've caught on when they were like six points my policies. I fact checked remedied are only six points behind Barscelona. So that's like anything can happen. So at least the league's seem to be getting closer and closer. Yeah. I don't know what it is with twenty eight hundred twenty nineteen seasons with teams actually fucking remaining within pretty close intervals end. We're in February and we have a title race in Germany England and Spain that is up in the air. I can't remember the last time. One of those leagues has been up in the air by February let alone all three. So that's fucking fantastic. But rail just like you said definitely sparked that fire at the exact right time. And I I believe it's the one of the reasons this fire has been sparked onto their ass is young Vinicius junior that kid's a fucking wonder kid that kid was talking peace amazing amazing in the fucking Darby. And the kid is I I'm calling him a kid because he's a mother fucking kitties like seventeen eighteen years old. They paid a stupid amount of money to buy him when he was sixteen from some Brazilian team. I think it was Flamengo. But Real Madrid sparking at the right time and under the leadership of Sergio Ramos who has just become the face of that club. I think for us become I think he's yeah. I was about to I was about to say like even though Rinaldo was the face of Real Madrid Sergio ram O's, very pretty face Sergio Ramos, and we've made this comparison before is that Draymond green. He is that fucking glue that holds that team together that fucking leader behind the scenes that guy who's gonna hold you to par and we saw once again in the Madrid Darby the dude fucking scores and probably in my opinion, did the most disrespectful fucking celebration. I've seen in a long time. He did a mockup of the Antoine grease Mun dance. And I'm yeah, I'm sorry. But if you fucking do that in the face of your biggest fucking rival after scoring as a defender. You just have the cojones as the size of a horse horse. It's it's like fucking power to Sergio Ramos. I think that man is a huge reason why ram Madrid as a whole has turned this season around the only fucking thing that I think Real Madrid is really stupid for doing. And we talked about this earlier. But I do not think that they should have brought Kotwal in. I do not think Courtois should start for Real Madrid. I think keilor novice is a better keeper in the law Lita in the Champions League for Real Madrid. Courtois is a phenomenal world-class keeper when he was at Chelsea I thought it was a better keeper than Navas but novice should be row. Madrid's number one. I think he's proven a lot more than Kotwal has but other than that Madrid. Looks fucking fantastic. Rip roaring and ready to go at the exact right time. Just in time for the round. Ecksteen in the Champions League. And that final push to the end of season. Yeah. Also, just want to state that Miranda Murata is a cancer and that he is ruining Athletico Madrid horrible signing and also would like to state that Courtois got rats thrown at him. And if some of you don't know THEO boat Courtois came from Madrid. So the kind Spaniards through tons of I believe to be fake rats. I would hope they did not bring in real rats because we would have another plague at the will they're not the counter on anymore. They have a new stadium, which I don't know the name of. But anyway, silly Spanish fans throwing rats Courtois. It just kind of warms my heart that there's still some level of pettiness in terms of betrayal to even though that was like years ago, they are still holding on that like, you know, I guess he came and was like through Athletico, I guess so but like he was at Chelsea for quite a law. Long stint. Well, yeah. But I mean that shit's the exact same thing happened with Ceska an arsenal Barcelona, and Chelsea I mean, I fucking love that aspect about soccer how how fucking close fans hold betrayals to their hearts like you could leave for six years come back and play for a indirect rival on. You're just like, oh, you Faulk bitch, you betrayed everything that I know in love, I hate you. And I mean it happens with Rehim sterling when he goes back to Anfield it happened with a Cessna the gas when he returned to them read stadium. Real madrid? I don't think really cells in a players to Barscelona nor Athletico, but Athletico is a development powerhouse to heya came from there court ball came from there in a number of fantastic players around the world have has have come from the development of athletic Madrid. So I mean fans crazy fans hate when people leave and this just shows that Courtois is not welcome back head up. Let it go. And for good reason has old black is better. Well, obviously. But before we move on. I do want to mention that. I learned a new word today. Martin. And that that word is cock Wamba l-. Definition. I did get a definition earlier from the I think they're called the split, scarves, podcasts or two something. Like that. Is it an actual word? Well, let me tell you where I learned it former Scottish international and former Chelsea player in now ESPN FC pundit Craig Burley tweeted that as someone today, and I've never laughed so hard he said because the the fan of ESPN FC ESPN released their picks for the last sixteen Champions League. And the guy said because apparently all their picks were EPL teams. And the guy was like look at ESPN FC's bias towards EPL teams, picking all them. This is horrible and tagged Craig Burley in it. And Craig Burley was like, hey, I didn't make these picks. You cock wobble. And I went to what. So I'm not exactly sure hold on the definition of cock Wamba. Oil from the half-and-half scars podcasts is something. This is great. This is really good. Why did Twitter change Twitter has changed or format where it becomes a list now? And I hate it. When you go to like your tweets in replies. So once I find this guys it's going to be so good. Just wait. Oh, I got this dictionary. So this is what the half and have scarves podcast has defined as a cock Wambo. They said a cock Wambo is a close relative of the popular shit puffins and fuck nugget. So that there you go you have it. That's what a cock mumbo is. I think that fucking words to be used a lot more often in our day to day life. I'm going to start trying to fuck in us that everything just flows off the tongue. Cock wobble and friendship you pronounce coke wom- lay. Urban dictionary says it's completely useless person. That sprouts constant bullshit. So Craig used it in fucking perfect faction. Wow. We give Craig everyone tweeted Craig Burley and tell them tell him that like congratulated on using the correct use of cock mumble while we both phase it into our vernacular. So expect Kakumba in of the new lad shows, but guys before move into premier merely talk. We're going to be right back right after this break. This is the overtime podcast network. All right. We're back. So guys. This is the moment. All you Premier League fans have been waiting for. We're going to talk about it. Manchester City at the at the had versus Chelsea six nil. And all I have in my notes for this is just well. So a little context, I went to tear nog Irish pub in center city, Philadelphia this weekend and gave away about thirty odd. Chelsea or thirty odd lad shirt. So I give a bunch of a bunch of our merchandise for free try, and do some promotion met a lot of awesome people middle a lot of awesome Chelsea fans. Tiernan dog is a Chelsea slash Manchester City pub, which you don't really see that often where to top six clubs are sharing the same bar. So, and I know I was telling all the guys when we were there like I'm sorry. We're going to have to talk about it. I got a lot of good input from them. But marin. They were down four nil by the twenty fifth minute. And when they went down to nil Martin all I kept saying like they need to wake the fuck up. What are they doing? I mean, they had there's a couple times where kept us should have done better the defenses flat. But Jorgihno is a wet sandwich. He is absolutely worthless. And he's I think sorry is what he's trying to do is is use him in that Nicola Conte role, and you know, who be great at Nagoya Cantero Martin fucking negoti Kante. He already has a player there. I am so sorry for Chelsea fans. Watching this wet sandwich of a player Jorgihno do these five passes. That's all I've seen them do Martin. I've only seen him do back and forth. Five passes this four three three bullshit that sorry is doing is unacceptable, and he was supposed to bring this flashy best attacking football to this club. And. And he has underperformed, and I'm gonna let you go because we're talking about the goals and stuff, but that is my first gut reaction rant about this. He is running around not knowing what to do getting no service. It has art is pretty much giving his highlight reel to go to Real Madrid. This club is in serious trouble right now. And the thing about sorry was he did not make any changes after halftime. None like he thought. Everything was just fine. The house was on fire. But he's just that that dog Meam does like, it's fine. It's totally fine. Yeah. I mean, first and foremost Virginia is a poor man's in goal. Kante? I find it absolutely ludicrous that the man who best plays the position they're in the Premier League in goal. Oh, Kante is forced to change his tactics. Rather than Georgina being forced to change his tactics to suit the Premier League. So I think that was a very early onset mistake by sorry. And his inability to fucking either as sept- that his system needs to be tweaked or that Jorgihno is not fucking suitable in that position really speaks to his stubbornness. And if you remember back to twenty fifteen twenty sixteen pet was similarly stubborn in his first year and teams were able to recap on on city from time to time. So I think we can see some parallels here. But I think the most important this is my gut reaction to the game after seeing Chelsea in twenty eighteen twenty nineteen season the Chelsea board and the Chelsea fans have to make a decision right here right now, whether they trust sorry to turn this ship around whether they think that sorry ball Cam work in the English Premier League. Whether that they believe that he should be given a second chance, whether they believe in his tactics itself, this decision should in my mind be made right here right now. Because if if they give a no confidence vote for sorry. Get him out right now bringing a -nother manager and get him up to speed while this fucking campaign. Runs down do not wait three four six seven months like Manchester. United did in firing Jose Marino. You're just gonna adds more talk city to that fucking already shit situation. So Chelsea I think is a team. That has replaced Manchester United in the whole toxic locker room talk. I think this is a very discouraged embarrassed and angry team right now. I believe that I've seen a couple of reports saying that sorry is beginning to lose the dressing room. And and that would not surprise me. I think of Ingo Conti was a angrier meaner person. He would've fucking bitch slap sorry and been like bitch. I am the best fucking player in this defensive mid position. You bring this sweaty Italian piece of shit, Meatball Georgina Howell, and you think he can play like me on the no no fucking playing. Golick Conde, where he's supposed to be played because you're defense, isn't that fucking superb? You don't need a half wit Jorgihno fucking patrolling that fucking defense hoping them out you need a strong fucking defensive midfielder who's gonna work like a dog until that job is done and that's goal. Kante saris inability or fucking. On just just refusal to realize that and realize that his tactics are not working in the English Premier League as they are now will ultimately be his end chose downfall. So my mind Chelsea needs to get. A decision out there. Do we keen do we trust or fucking fuck? It get them out. You are Chelsea don't forget, you are chose a you can sack manager one of the fuck you one and Roman Abramovich will hire the mob to find you knew one and the special one is out there, can you imagine Marino returning to Chelsea. I I'm not Marino's biggest fan I supported him. When I was at when he was at United fell out of like with him very quickly. But I could not imagine a better storyline than Marino returning to Chelsea for the team time, especially if he wins the Premier League next year like holy fuck. Yeah. In the thing is Nicole Kante is now a part of winning two Premier League titles with two different teams and they World Cup. And let's think about this. What was the focal point of those teams with him him sitting in front? Of the front of the back four controlling that midfield in the Lester title win that Chelsea title went under Kante and the World Cup. We just watch us summer. Nagoya Kante was the focal point of the controlling them midfield so players like Pogue. Moras? And then you had eaten has are. These talented Ford players not worrying about getting back and him just controlling that midfield and man city just took complete advantage of Regino because the guy can't defend the guy can't really like what is what this guy fucking worthless. He is honestly worthless. In the beginning season. We saw some flashes of sorry ball doing. Well. Right. We're all like kind of getting hypnotized, and I want to go back to your point about pep pep was very similar in his first season was going to live and die by his pep tactics pep tactics his ticky tacky now pep has changed dramatically and each his tactics. Like every game if feels like we're he'll it'll be sometime similar, but some games. I'm like, oh, he's just completely just gone. Haywire. You know, and he does that. And he went that's why he's so good because. N he's a proven winner. Sorry is not a proven winner. He has a one anything. So I don't understand where all this hype was coming from. So Chelsea I don't mean the get you guys upset I don't mean to lament on this. I'm ranting. We're both ranting for you right now. So before we get back on Chelsea and what they should do. I do want to highlight man city. It would be unfair to the Manchester City listeners if we didn't highly how absolutely dominating and fantastic and beautiful. You guys were against Chelsea for him. Sterling was phenomenal. I knew the match ball went to a guero who now tied Alan Shearer for most hat tricks in the Premier League, which is absolutely phenomenal. He now has I think like forty plus goals against the top six, which is like ridiculous Sergio guero Marin. I know you're not going to agree with this. But I mean, he has to be getting closer to that top five all time strikers and the Premier League right like easily Slyke lie. Making a name for himself. I have I told you I think it was last week or the week before I have grow my top five. He has to be at least inching closer, right? Inching closer. But the legacy of those that are in the top five, I do not think Aguayo can never reach those heights. Come on Terry on rea. No. I don't think he could reach Terry on res heights, Wayne Rooney. I don't think so, but that and I said this last week, and I'll say this again that does not take anything away from guero girl, in my opinion is a top ten striker in English Premier League history. Manchester City does team that Manchester City has had over the past two years as a phenomenal team, and they seem to. Keep improving on their very little faults. And there are very few perfect games. But this might have seemed like one from Manchester City point of view, I think they were absolutely dominant absolutely confident from the fucking first time that whistle blew and they dominated the game. They were just able to exploited choices defence the midfield of Kevin LeBron's and Gunderson is just a sight to behold, especially when you have Bernardo Silva, sterling guero in front of them who are all just incredibly fucking creative and visionary players and those visionary players just destroyed that back long that was only protected by Georgina and for good measure if we want to run through the goals row quick where him sterling opened it up in the fourth minute from a just gorgeous fucking pass, and then Aguayo tacked on another in the thirteenth goon again had a. Fucking worldly strike in the twenty fifth and then Aguayo got another goal in the fucking fifty six. Sorry. Another one in the nineteen and fifty six where he topped it off at eighty and the thing that fucking impresses me. Most most with city and consistently impresses me with city. We've talked about this before and it's as much of a strength as a weakness they do not rely on a singular player guero. If Aguayo is out they can still get that job done. If Katy b is out they can still get that job done. If Rehim is out they can still get that job too. Because the fucking tactics take presence over the skill level of those players. So I think that what I'm trying to say is I think pep. Heart. Hold on. Let me just try not to choke. Why say this? I think pet has masterminded the English Premier League better than any other managers since or Alex's tenure. I think poster Alex pep has been the smartest and best manager in the Premier League so far. No, I definitely have to agree with that statement. I think he's gone and just taking it just by storm. And it's shown I mean, he made Chelsea look like they were Huddersfield which again, I don't want to shit on Chelsea. I'm just trying to say like, this is absolutely absurd. Six goals and its top six side. Oh and to throw it out there. This is the worst defeat that chose. He has ever suffered in the Premier League era. So since nineteen Ninety-two Chozas never been beaten this bed. So that just adds a whole nother fucking layer of embarrassment for sorry for the Chelsea fans and Chelsea play. There's so this was an ask weapon like I've never seen before. Yeah. I mean, there's some goals. I don't think Kappa coulda done much about me, especially that. Unreal. Wearable outside the eighteen. Which was usually just not right? I mean and kept it even got a hand on it. And just there's nothing he could do he seemed very exposed in this game. The back four. I mean, we've talked about dabid Louise looking exposed for years. Now, I don't know how in Tonio Kante made him look great. But you know, all credit to city. Chelsea Abramovich is weird though. He's kind of taking a step back in his finger is usually on the trigger when it comes the managers so fair. It's only like it's it's February into his first fucking season as a manager. So of Abramovich pulled the trigger right now and fired. Just like straight up fired. Sorry, I would know instantaneously that he has killed people before because that's just cold blooded. Yeah. Maybe give them more time. They haven't given him enough money fucking Ross Barkley sucks. He's he's dealing with Ross Barkley who was absolutely unplayable leg. Jorgihno just another wet sandwich on the field. So I don't know. I don't wanna talk about this anymore. Congrats the city. They're now tied on points. Again, top the league again Liverpool with a game in hand. But they are right now as we're saying this top of the league, and they just put ship humping on Chelsea. So Marin, let's move on to another Manchester side, Manchester United beating Fulham three nil at Craven Cottage turning Fulham into cottage cheese. Pau GPA unbelievable in this match. Just now I think he's sitting at eleven goals in Premier League thirteen goals in all competitions pug, though was absolutely phenomenal. He has been revitalized by soak shar that is undeniable they are calling this the soak shar miracle which again like, please, we're not making a big deal out of it. But some people are calling that because Josie Marino had a comment back in December saying you would take a miracle for Man United to make it into the four. So shore has done that Manchester. United are now sitting at fourth place with fifty one points. So Marin run me through this game. What were your favorite parts of this? Great away win by Manchester. United. I think it was just another confidence builder. I think it was close to way old school mentioned knighted performance as if there ever was one. I mean, I think the Anthony marshy I'll go which is what I wanna talk about first and foremost was absolutely fucking almost picture perfect. These same as Rinaldo goal against Fulham back in two thousand seven the way he can control that bowl. So fucking veasley at speed and pick out the perfect shot. I mean, it just makes you fall in love with that French kid. So I think as a whole was another fantastic game for Manchester United. They they dominated they whether that early storm by meet your vision Fulham for the first ten minutes, and then just after that played their game played that attacking style of of football. At this point. I think paw-paw bug can be considered one of the best midfielders in the Prum. I think that under all the under Deschamps under a leg ry. He. He has been unplayable. So to speak the only coach the only time that he was not considered one of the best players in the league was when he was playing at Marino or playing with Marino. So I think that's a testament to all he has done to this Manchester United squad. He's revitalized it. That's the perfect word to fucking call it. He's introduced that old school style of thinking along with Mike felon Carrick, and I can't remember for the life of me. The last assistant coaches name. It will come to me as sleep for whatever reason. I remember for hours from now. But once again, classic Manchester United win good fucking performance, a head of the Champions League clash on Tuesday with PS g Popa Anthony Marshall fucking fantastic. The only thing I do not like about this team about this squad is playing Rahm Lou. Luke hawks up front and having Alexi Sanchez to bring on at halftime or. In replace of Jesse Lynn guard or marshy? Our rash furred. I think that the top three should be locked in game in game out fucking develop that chemistry. That's what ceramics used to do with TEZ Rinaldo in running. They always play together. I think that's what all it should do with rashy, lingered and Marcio. I think that's the perfect three. I don't think that any fucking transfers need to be brought into Manchester United's attack, the focus should be on the defense. That's a. Yeah. I think big takeaways from this as well. If you're a full fan or following Fulham. I think Claudia Rene is definitely on the hot seat. There was boos after he took off Andre Shirley in the fifty third minute rainier who, you know, dilly, ding, Dong, ding. We love the guy and we were so excited when he came back into the league, but he is struggling with this Fulham side right now, and you know, mentor, she he just picked a just ran into a train really with manteaux she United. So it's very unfortunate for him. It is. And I mean to be fair to Claudio he kind of inherited a dumpster fire. And it does look like the dumpster fire is worsening. So I think that we called it a couple of weeks back that we think Fulham is going to be relegated. If results like this continue to pile up from an area. It's all but guaranteed at this point. I I think this was a pretty easy victory for United looking forward to next week when United faces Liverpool and that's going to be huge game. Not only for Manchester, not advanced, but Manchester City fans, huge Tato implications. But Kev, that's about all I have to talk about United. You wanna move onto the current title challengers and in second place Liverpool three born with zero. Yeah. Great match. Great atmosphere at Anfield. They got very cocky at the end when they are up three no against bore myth singing will never walk alone. With like, two minutes left. Huge cocky move by Liverpool. I love it goes by Mani when autumn and mohamed-salah who has shaved his beard, which is weird. I don't I don't think I like it, please. Please. Someone get him some hair growing facial shit as fast as possible because I don't like it. I don't like it. I think his magic is in the beard. I've only seen him really with a beard. So this could be bad for Liverpool. But dominating game. You know, Liverpool was going through a bad. Not even a bad spell, even lose anyone. They were just getting dropping points through draws really. But this is just a reaffirm that Liverpool were like, hey for still really good our front three is so fucking awesome. But then, of course, city had to go when double against Chelsea the next day. But you know, whatever again great win for Liverpool. Great atmosphere. Anfield wanna emphasize us Liverpool fans are not losing their doesn't seem to be doubt looming over that much. Even though the pressure seems to be all in Liverpool not city, so but great to see Salah. Law on the scoresheet great to see Mani wonderful goals in without OMB. Who's been you know, very key figure in that midfield while they're still trying to figure out Kiet and moving things around with their rotation. And getting in these bench players and stuff like that. So wonderful wonderful match. For a liberal perspective. This was about a perfect match after the mini slump that they have experienced over the past two matches dominating performance against a kinky tricky side that is the cherries and such dominating performance that bodes Ryan Frazier, and Steve cook said that they were blown away by the Liverpool fans and and Liverpool performance in the post Madge interview. So I mean when you have your opponent, complimenting you like that, you know, you did something right lever pulled does. Not stumble. This week bounces right back into top spot. And they had it for about, you know, twelve hours before Manchester City laid that drubbing on Chelsea. So I think both United and Liverpool looking forward to this Sunday matchup with a great expectation and anticipation because from Liverpool perspective, I think they feel confident I think they are. Our first or second on any given week the best team in the Premier League, not not based on standings. But in terms of their style of play. And I think that city best this week. And I think that between Klopp and pep and Liverpool and city and the players and the fans there's an immense competition to one up each other. So as United fan, I'm kinda scared. I'm not a don't want them to one up each other. I do not want Liverpool to come in trying to fucking destroy a seven zero. But this is this was a fantastic recovery. Game quote unquote for Liverpool and I've seen mad fucking things. Online on Instagram on ESPN on the Twitter with Liverpool fan saying, oh, you thought we had a slump we drew two games. And I like I got a mid like fuck me. That's that's a great slump to have. If you have to have a slump drawn two games. Okay. I'm okay with that. So even though it was a slump. They fuck. Fucking God out of there and got back to their winning ways. Yeah. Let's move on to arsenal. Jeez. We don't have to spend long on this game. This the first time are so's one away. And I'll quite a while. And all I gotta say about this game is Huddersfield dominate possession. I thought that arsenal was finally going to get a clean sheet. And we give an own-goal and like the ninety minute arsenal. One to one. This wasn't a spectacular game. I'm not going to chalk it up as anything. I'm just gonna take the three points. And just be glad that we didn't. Fuck this one up. So that's a good fucking outlook. I mean, I think. I think y'all very fucking deservedly got the victory deserve victory. The goal is like stereotypical arsenal. Like that last fucking second. Like who? Oh, let's shooter. So from the just just remind me that I'm an arsenal fan, right? Right. We've got a fucking make one mistake per game. And Klasnic made his mistake in the ninety third minute. Yeah. I honestly. This team is still a lot of work in the fact that we struggled against Huddersfield who's the bottom of the fucking table. It's you know. All right move onto next week. All right. Let's move on to another north London team Tottenham Hotspur versus LeicesteR three one victory for LeicesteR in the thing. I want to bring up about Spurs, and the reason I put them last is because ton them are doing this thing again where they are low key just winning a ton Martin. And no one is talking about them. But the are sitting in third place right behind Liverpool and city kind of in the hunt. I know we've already said they're not gonna win the Premier League. But they are nine points ahead of you guys. United and ten points above Chelsea and arsenal. Like four and away above the fourth fifth and six and they're almost solidifying their Champions League spot for next year. So. Another takeaways Ericsson has been absolutely phenomenal without cane or anything like that his goal in this game. Just like playing perfectly one to passing just laying off just a beauty a world e I I was a ton of fan. I would love this. But I also be very worried of teams such as the Barcelona's Real Madrid's eyeing him up and trying to snag in the summer because he has been in phenomenal form. And I know he's every summer. He's always a top. Talent that is always being looked at from afar from these clubs. So I I'm happy for Tottenham. I'm just worried because you know, we say this every year. Like when is this one is the gang going to be breaking up? When are they going to go their separate ways? So I don't know. Do you have any takeaways from his game? Yeah. First and foremost, I think if Jamie Vardi was more clinical they could have given Tottenham a real fucking fight in this game Jimmy Vardi missed a penalty immediately. After being subbed on he missed a close shot. He then got his goal. And then he missed another shot after he after he scored. So I mean, if he scored one or two of those that would have changed the entire outlook of this fucking game. But as the game falcons fans as the result fucking stands Tottenham, comfortable victory Erickson, I think is that main man without alley or Cain in the mix. I think that with Eric's alone alone in that fucking Tottenham team so to speak. He is truly showing his fucking skill in that midfield and the goal that he had that quick fucking shot. He has always been brilliant at shooting the ball in the opposite corner that the goalie things it's going to. He's always been bro. In that split second sending the goalie the wrong way. And I think I think that he deserves to have some suitors some huge suitors come after his signature this summer. I mean Barcelona row Madrid are just two that are interested. I if I was event is I'll prefer to have Ericsson them Ramsey can just say that like if I'm event is my eyes when at the EPA, oh, I would want Erikson not Ramsey. No, I think that's totally fair. I think Ericsson is a bit more creative and more clinical. I don't know just from maybe I'm biased because an arsenal fan. I just get jaded my players. I'm not looking at you know, I'm not stats guy right now. But if I were do the, you know the face test or the, you know, the eye test. I mean, I would probably pick Ericsson right now over on Ramsey. Yeah. I mean, I don't know if it's my lack of or snow love or if it's something else. But I think that Ramsey has has not been a as good of a creator and a consistent crater as Ericsson has been his entire time at Tottenham. I think Ericsson Katie or or the best. Ericsson k to be Paul bar the best midfielders in the in the Premier League this this season. So far at this point in time. And I think that Ericsson definitely deserves to be in talked in the same conversation that Katy b n Papa and taught midfielders or I think that he is absolutely under looked. I think that's just you know, part of that taught them Kerr's Tom's kind of a bottling club. You don't really hear about alley? You don't really hear about lorries when you're talking about Premier League day in day out who's the best in their position. But they have some serious fucking strengths on that team and Eric's. I think definitely deserves to be taught three midfielders in in his position. No, I definitely agree. But all right, guys. We're gonna move on to fan questions, but went to a quick break. We'll be right back with questions. This is the overtime podcast network. All right. Well, we're back. Okay. So first question comes from our Facebook from Kyle Wilkins, he asked alright crazy idea with how bad Huck con Chawl HANA glue. Oh god. I totally ruined that it's the guy the player at east as long. Yeah. Chilanga? Thank you. Yep. Oh, look, we're talking Siri Syria guys blow so with how much AC Milan want to get back to the champions leagues and their connections to Timothy ways. Father would if Tim way signed for AC maligns AC Milan after his time at Celtic. Ooh. I would absolutely lose my ever loving ship. Also shot out we haven't even brought up Timothy way. Really? But he is killing it as Celtic already. I think he already has like two goals in two games or I have I don't know what he didn't star game. I know he's like two in his first two games, so already chalk it up as the US men's national team golden decade coming soon. I think that'd be awesome. I would love to see him in a top five league, especially for a historic club. It's a Simone. I think it'd be absolutely fantastic. Can I be an asshole real quick like to share my you? You you be an asshole. Yeah. I know shocking. Shock know gone. All right. All right. Look, I I love the US men's national team. I'm all about Christian pulisic all about our golden generation, but Timothy wake can't even make it in a league with farmers. He couldn't break into the PS g team. He couldn't even break into a consistent substitute in a league where they regularly and January genuinely play farmer town teams. So they sent him to farmer fucking Ville Scotland. And he's crushing it up there. No, fucking doubt. In my mind. I'm not gonna fucking disregard that fact at all, but do not get hype about this young Tim way when he scoring against the farmers of farmers and does he deserve to go to ace Milan. In any sense at this point in his career, in my opinion. Absolutely fucking not. What has he done other than have six months of fame? He hasn't even started for PS g once like started consistently once. This guy is a kid is playing in the Scottish Premier League. He's not going to as Milan, he's not even going back to league earn. He has to get better. Fuckin-? Encourage them to get better before you imagine him reuniting with his father's dream. Fuck reality sets in and it's a miserable fucking reality. But I live in it. You're just a hater, man. It's just it's it's I mean, it must be nice being a hater. I I wouldn't know. But all right moving on to our Twitter. Half in half scarves podcast, which by the way. Great name. I hate having have scarves, and I hate full kit wanker, but if you add podcast end of that. I love it. So they're question is should Chelsea sack. Sorry, now bearing in mind they've got menu and FA Cup man city in the League Cup in Spurs at home in the Premier League necks. Ooh. Yikes. Yikes. We kind of talked about this. I don't think they can now, but they should make a decision to other sac him or not, you know, if that makes sense at all. Yeah. I don't know Abramovich might be taken. I'm all about giving people more time to figure it out and give them the players that they want. So I think saris gotta learn how to adapt like pep. Did. I think sorry Abramovich has fired managers for less. So maybe see how he does during the spell, but it's also not fair to him, really. During the spell these going up against three top teams who are both. You know, flying high right now are all flying high. I think sorry as much as I ranted earlier abou- and gave him so much grief. I still think he needs time. I think he needs to adapt. An ISA changes tactics. Do something he definitely just needs to like not stick with this four three three. He needs to move into goalie contact back plane where he's supposed to be playing. But that's all I I think we're moving agreement that don't sacrament now. But if this process. And he keeps getting blown out. I mean got blown up born myth now blown out by in by fucking city. That's ten goals right there in the three matches where you didn't score anything away. So all right moving on arsenal. F c discussions follow them at discussions arsenal. F c or something. All right. They say is Emery doing the right thing by replacing Arsene Wenger's British core. Yes. I actually brought that up to one of my friends earlier that arsenal used to be the future of British football. And now, they're all gone chambers. Ox Jack Wilshire Aren Ramsey. I mean, if he needs to do it do it if he's gonna make his team better than yet. And I think this squad. He's developing right now and Rainsy didn't really work into his future than. Yeah. I think it's totally fine. I mean, we're not really seeing that many British T top sixteens for being honest. So I think it's totally fine. I mean, I just kind of the one I'm really upset about is probably ox laid also the walkout there. But fuck the oh, but like Oxley Chamberlain. I was pretty bummed about. Yeah. I mean, I don't really hate it at all. I think Arsene Wenger's one of the most. Critical things not critical. But the one of the things that he got critique the most foreign the early stages of his career was bringing in a lot of foreigners and displacing that mostly British corps. And it seems like twenty years down the line. United is doing the same thing. I don't think chambers. Theo or Wilshire, we're good enough for arsenal. Or at least what our snow wants to be at. So I do not disagree with getting rid of any of those players, regardless of whether they were British Foreign or whatever alien. I think United is is just trying to shape the squad in his vision. And he's cutting loose weight. I think the only true true. And I say this as respectfully as I can I think the only true true loss that our snow is a team suffered in terms of British players leaving is ARIN Ramsey. I don't think ox laid could've done much better at ours. No ads just an opinion. I think he did pretty good for Liverpool. But I don't think arsenals tactics are ever going to MIR Liverpool's so ox would never be able to play to the potential that he has at arsenal. So I don't think that these are any losses or anything to be sad about from arsenal f c arsenal fan perspective with exception of Ramsey. Yeah. I think it's just it was just time. All right next. Question comes from Corey Andres follow him at under twenty seven on Twitter. He says what's more messed up? The fact that arsenal pay three hundred fifty K week to not even be included in the squad for most of our games. Ouch. Or that? We lost Ramsey on a free signing. Ooh. Wow. Just just you know, trying to find a needle in needle stack. Fuck me. I would probably say. But now that Ramsey's getting paid four hundred K a week. I'm not that upset so a probably say a more upset about ozo- because he was pretty much the hope the beginning cog for like the arsenal that was going to hopefully, get a Premier League title when he first came over. And it just seems like that's definitely not going to happen now. So I think I'm more disheartened. I'm sad and about owed so not even making the starting eleven in playing being paid that wage. So this is gonna follow up to that question. Because this is your team. Would you rather Oto be paid lessons be with that team? Or would you rather him start consistently? So I guess what I'm asking is. Would do you want to on that team? Do you want him to play each week, regardless of how much is being paid or do just are you just done with the Oto experiment? No, I think people get too focused on the wages. Sometimes even though we just went and ranted about Ramsey being paid a ridiculous amount. But the thing is Ramsey is going to be paid a ridiculous mount in probably play a lot. That's what I would think. But I don't know. I would rather, you know. That's tough. I think Odsal starting would be fantastic being that he does have so much talent. But I think he doesn't work in United's system. So yeah, I'd probably rather him just be gone from the club in general like I don't want like, oh, we could cut his wages. But like if he's still not gonna work in the system. I rather him just be gone and go flourish hopefully somewhere else in which the best for him. I wonder where he would go. I mean, how old is. So now is he twenty nine twenty eight. Yeah. He has to be almost thirty now. Yeah. He is thirty I do kinda wonder about the future of of where he would go. What what league he would go to what team in that league? Because I the only real options I see my head for Oso is either return to Spain go to Madrid or return to Germany go back to Byron. I really don't at least in my dumb fucking idiot mind. I don't see him anywhere else in the world. Yeah. I really don't see him. That's a tough one. I haven't even thought about the departure. And what teams would want him just because I don't think arsenal has really done him any favors. So. When Phil Jones has more system, you it's kind of sad. All right moving on to next question at simplified size, Simon Parke. He says Marino Conti and sorry did well at Chelsea before getting criticized and leaving slash fired. But win will people are blaming the players for their lack of results. No, we brought that up. We've brought about how Chelsea players they think they're going to win the play phenomenally. But if they don't they'll just be kind of days ical, and it has come out. I mean now it's three managers now where there has been issues in the dressing room. Where players are not putting out there. You know, are not playing to their full extent Marcus Alonzo getting chewed out by sorry this week at practice pretty much telling him your fucking shit a soccer. I mean, we see that some player these go out there, and they just go out and get their paycheck and leave. I mean, that's the you know, sad part about this game. You know, some players go out and just play for a paycheck others play for titles. And then Chelsea's case they will do it when they think they're definitely gonna win. And if they know they're not gonna win they just kind of like switch off. So I definitely think there is something there. It's not all on. Sorry. I do think the players do deserve some if not a lot of the blame. But also saw is not setting them up for success like Nagoya Kante playing in the fucking like right wing. That's bizarre to me. Yeah. I think at least for this Chelsea example, it's a little bit of this little bit of that. I'm if you remember back to November. There were plenty people questioning mansions nodded work ethic. The players work ethic, not not hosing Marino's, but I can vividly remember Graham soon as having a rock hard. Erection talking about how he did not think pulp hog was putting in any effort. I. And remember law a lot of pundits in common. You know, commentators questioning individuals specific players on a lot of teams you go to arsenal. And there's always going to be someone questioning Osos work ethic rather than the teams work ethic. So I think there there's plenty of focus on the player's performance as well as the manager's performance. But when you have just been beaten six zero and the tactics have not been changed since day one, and you are playing players out of position, and you are yelling at players and you as the coach personally, blaming the players impress conferences. Yeah. The focus is going to be on sorry and not the players. So I think this is dammit, I keep fucking going back to this. I think this is Marino ask man. I think sorry 'em rainy just making everything worse and worse and worse just because their refusal to change and the focus should be on the players and the coaches, but because of the coach's actions both Marino. Sorry. A lot of the focus is on the coach itself. Yeah. I think sorry definitely has a lot of blame. But I do think players should definitely not get by Scott free. All right moving onto our Instagram questions. Please follow us at lads podcasts. Mark dot Morgan zero says can we not talk about that Chelsea defeat? Well. Nope. Sorry. Sorry. Sorry. Sorry. S A R I, buddy. Sorry next question comes from sue Sweeney underscore hut. Underscore junior Champions League finalists predictions, by the way. Thanks for the shirt just received it. Yeah. He won't our Twitter giveaway where I give away. I sent him a free Lancer. So glad Tagab it got it. I think it's real names, rob Sweeney. I won't tell anyone what Israel dresses. So rob got you. Don't worry that's between me, and you also do other stuff, wink, wink, all right? Martin Champions League finals predictions. I'm going to do gun to my head eventers Barcelona right now. Shit which would be amazing run out over semester. That's why I want the big fucking theater Beck. Cicle one. The gophers of the goat. That's what I want. I say. I say Byron Munich. Buyer Munich Venice, oh, you're such a Barscelona messy hater got damn. It's a it's a great voice Lona excelled in the Champions League in the past when they wanted a when they won the treble past passed a when the when they came pass against three years when they came back again semi-final down in the semi-finals. When was the last time they went to a funnel four years buyer Munich was that successful they blew it against Real Madrid. Come mine years, speak because. Yeah. Isn't that? Right. Wasn't that the narrative after Madrid? I guess we need VR Martin. Okay. Next question cups from Lithonia show who went more trophies next year, ornery Z or Christian pulisic Rams intas is guaranteed. That's such bullshit. Fuck. Fuck you Anthony, you know, it's Ramsey because this is guaranteed wind at least probably two trophies in Italy, either the COPA Italian a- and the Syria to be very time is coming up to win another a league title with a new coach. It's about that three year Mark where they hire new coach he wins in the first year. And then everything goes to shit doesn't appear like it's gonna be sorry. But it's coming close. Yeah. It's every other year, we know that. All right next question comes from Brock Biard sexy Kay. He says if the top six were beers. What would they be? Oh, ooh. Ooh. I don't get enough shit. Wow. That's going to be can we think on that? Can we get back to you on Thursday and thinking this Brock? Ten had to God hand Buddha. We will come back on Thursday Friday morning. We will have our top six Premier League teams with a beer assigned to them. We got some him. God, we got some fucking homework and Brock. You can remind me on Instagram because my man, I talked like fucking every week about cars dude knows his shit out to Brock's. Bjork ex CK. Yeah. So Brock just Lino. We're not gonna forget about you. We're we're coming back. We're going to be back. All right next. Question comes from our discord channel, which is our chat room where people can talk beer talk show to each other, talk football and get to know each other who are all fans of lattes. First question comes from Garfield. He says with things at Chelsea looking like a dumpster fire will sorry be back next season. All right. This is another sorry question. But he does add rumors say the Frankel for Lampert is the front runner, which I did see reports of this. And he's already saying, Nope. I'm staying with derby Darby, and I have no intentions of leaving going to Chelsea. But I mean, if he gets presented offer to Chelsea and play for his club where he became a legend at I think, he will take it. I mean, come on. But. Right now, we're still saying sorry will keep it. We'll see if he can get close at a top four. I don't know if Abramovich how bad he wants to be in the Champions League next year if he wants to be in the Champions League next year. I don't think sorry will get Chelsea in that top four spot. Yeah. I think. I think that sorry needs to pick his focus to end out this year. Whether it's on the league or Europa league. I believe that if he continues this run of form throughout the rest of the season. Then he should absolutely be dropped in the summer. I know Chelsea are ruthless and cold hard leg that. So that's a pretty big possibility. So it's about all I got on that one. All right last question comes from Brian Inge Elino be Angelino. He says how much longer can men you continue. This run of form is Oleg gunner of fluke or does he actually know what he is doing? Should he be offered the manager spot permanently? He okay. No. So obviously, go ahead. Obviously, we're recording this at eight thirty at night. So obviously mentions not did lose to PS g today two zero. But I think all they should be given the permanent position for many, many, many reasons, but I just want to start off by saying PS G versus manches knotted should not determine whether he gets the job or not. It's it's the change in club that drastic change in in the atmosphere and the in the look on the players faces the look on the fan's faces for FOX sake. This is the first time that in the past four years that I have been actually excited and hopeful for a Champions League game and this week and I am excited for matchup with Liverpool. Olgun soldier is the only manager in the past four years that has been able to deliver that excitement of fans and players. He has. Also gone on a eleven game undefeated streak until today this defeat needs to be taken as a lesson. It not as a fucking end. All get the fuck outta my club. Holly gonna Salk char- you didn't win the rest of the games imaginable. I think soc should be given the position solely based on. What he has brought back to the club. It feels like twenty eleven at feels like twenty eight two thousand eight not twenty eight. She's cry some dumb, but he has brought back an intangible to the club that is more important than a lot of people standing on the outside looking in understand. It's it's so much more than the tactics. He's brought to the club. It's about the feeling manches. Not it is supposed to be run taught and coached a certain type of way. And that is what he's brought back and for that reason loan along with the results that he is achieved in such short amount of time coming over from God damned. Norway. Fuck. Yeah. My dude is ready for the full-time gig give it to him. And if they if managerial board at Manchester United do not give it to him Zidane or Pacino Brian on my join you and become a Newcastle fan because I will have zero faith. All right. How long does that take like three men? Okay. Yeah. Day has done a phenomenal job. I think he should keep the job, especially absolutely. If he's road this ship into the fourth spot and got him into Champions League. I think that is a no brainer. And yeah, I mean, let him have transfer window. Let him bring in the players. He'd wanna bring in and make this club, even better. So I definitely think he is very much deserving of the spa, especially all the hard work, and how happy the players look, and how Well Paul Paula has been this focal point of this club. All right, guys. Thank you so much for hanging out with us. Hope you have a wonderful Wednesday. And we will be back with you Friday to do over all the Champions League matches including the Manchester United for PSU game that Martin had briefly alluded to but shoutout to overtime media for taking us on and being awesome to us shut out to Justice. In an everyone overtime media for giving us a chance we love that. And we will see you on Friday with all the champions action. We love you.

He's like what team do i own again in in britain a the <hes> manchester caesar what position away and we win we want good good this segment concerns at three new premier premier league friends who earn promotion from the championship last season we start with the pride of norfolk a team out there in the eastern angriest part of agricultural britain noord city. I love norwich are fined sixty settlements rural beauty. This isolated culturally fashionable town is famed for its overstock eddyville. Cathedrals brewing must've production mustard and a lovable yoyo team. You've been relegated from the premier league join record four times yeah over the all season they've refashioned themselves under a young german manager daniel falker who's remade the culture of the club importing plethora of his fellow countrymen too few tactical toco riga where the young british optimism british optimism since i left is that a thing nineteen year old phanom max erin thinks the club is now achieved the impossible muscle not only gaining promotion to the premier league but making the team and the city somehow a pale bastion as offensive term blurs park life life into a new club anthem faulk life serenading their team with joyous line all those germans so many germans. That's song is everywhere. They go to the team that finished second in the championship season like no other will participate in just their fourth ever premiership season and their first in in twelve years but they're a proud northern club with a great tradition sheffield united from the steel city that was once an industrial powerhouse until manufacturing my shattered shots in the one thousand nine hundred eighty s the club like the city is largely struggled in recent years and was languishing amidst the grim third tier as recently as two thousand seventeen until a childhood oil hood united phantom player turn master motivational manager chris wilder return to channel the passion. That's never left the club. I'm propelled the team to glory his captain. Thirty-three-year-old strike billy sharp another childhood united fan who calls himself just stop fat lod from sheffield and the two of them have against all odds propelled united's return to the top flight making it perhaps the most romantic local story to light at the premier league in its history wow and finally the team that came up via via the championship playoffs. It's the return of an old friend raj coming to you hang from bob good in the midlands england second biggest city aston villa aw sea america org prefigures and campaign worked just about two seasons too late the villa back a club whose chaotic decline was righted by another lifelong phantom manager dean smith.

No so so this is premier league policy wrath benitez of course deposit newcastle to manage in the chinese super league wonder what prompted that raj yes the premier league goes take it away the primarily gods giveth after rafter announced his departure from tyneside we receive word the man who single-handedly got through the first few seasons steve bruce.

We talked about the big six. We've met all of our new friends. Now we want to turn our attention to teams that could shake up the primarily preordained order and make the leap from mid table mediocrity into the upper echelon along the philadelphia union. Maybe next year roger. I was thinking more along the lines of declan ricefield west ham that guy danny wofford recently assume gary k hills crystal palace all the premier league's portuguese diaspora and lost surprise bag wolverhampton wonders which team do you think we'll have a sustained assault on the top floor roger how would have said walls but that forward progress will be stymied by the europa league stumbling block fool's gold for any truly aspirational club leicester city funds though should be quite buzzing one of the most exciting young squats in the premier league featuring a glut of under twenty five hundred news including newly leap permanently signed your retailers and handsome james madison fuse the experience of kasper schmeichel and the alcohol imperviousness of jamie vardi <music> throw in the humble mothers leadership abroad. No delusions of grandma can make the case expectations in all they whites. Gaffe should should be skull and talking about hi raj. I noticed that for once you did not mention the words ever and ton in a sentence about teams poised to have a season of glory before a ball has even been kicked gibbs. I've learned my lesson about being hyperbolic him up prediction with the arrival of nineteen year old italian italian for no moisture and ninety seven percent show everton. They're gonna win this season's league title of the cancer and we're whoa beast team now. I'm going to keep it all to myself that because the last time i felt this great about everton season ahead winded lifting into the final game managed by sam allardyce so even where marveling at the new images released last week of everton's new six hundred eight million dollar stadium which opened in twenty twenty three it looks like a fortress in game of thrones dave. Even my first thought was this. I'm gonna see everton lifted trophy and that building in my life telling it's possible roger but only if another team and up ground sharing with everton cheer up the roads that point like our entire show up to this juncture has been speculation but to see what will really happen this season. We wanna turn to science ants by science. We mean pie. I we're going to take it by an predict which three teams will be relegated. What is your telling you rock. Hello pie talking road road but the button free or go to a place what black is a color known as a number of the season. We'll pay newcastle united despite the andre yet lynn having a player the season season crystal palace an old yeller of a campaign for roy hodgson and sheffield united the were sheffield since gary crystal still palace rod we only have one should have been going down and that is sheffield united sorry blades fans i also see brighton and hove albion after they sell the world's number one striker glen murray to manchester city january transfer window and finally i'm sorry fishwick burnley. They may take your premier league status but they'll never take away minivans okay roach the other end of the pie the part that will help you predict the top for <hes>. Don't lie day remember. This meat failed baked. Good sissy going back to back to back in second place huge shock mostly to spurs funds. It's telling them hotspur third plucky underdog champions the winners liverpool unenforced propel by the brunch the minute zego is this big as his prostate. It's the the city trying to win a europe police place. That's where the cool kids are gonna spy this season. That's the battle to walk well well. My pie brought must be from a separate batch. Let's call it the same gene batch. I'm getting a radically different truth in reverse order in fourth place chelsea football club in third place man united return to the top four in second second place. I gotta say i think it's going to be manchester. City rods that means this seasons primarily champions will be none other than livable football club above all the talk. This is the season you gotta walk the walk liverpool. It's your title to lose and if you thought clubs celebrations big last year this year's are going to approach u. S. women's national team level and yes even alexandra veteran meets the founder never not training mantles big pie possibly okay we know we said that was science but let's put bill nye and his friends aside for a second because today is the first day of the season glorious day these solar calendar year on which facts and data i mean absolutely nothing the dole in of a new premier league season this is really the first eight back in school everyone if we want turning up with a new cuts and that freshly bleach teeth for funds excitement levels to eleven for one day one day the only a share dreams of glory remain intact undented we can ignore the factor team selling that injury prone goal stuff strike convince ourselves. Just kinda resemble the form of better days and slap thirty goals. We look at long in the tooth defend nausea journeyman in yemen. You've played sparingly over the last few seasons but there's an established international who's won the league wealty weekend with us and we can persuade ourselves at the squad. We build its lovable. Book glaringly imbalanced hit will lost long bitten doth raqi cavalry charge as we approach approach. That's three hundred eighty games shine so brightly ahead of us over the next two hundred and eighty two days. Let's raise a gloss to make believe steve and magical thinking strike. Let cognitive dissonance rain once spore into the breach. Stay friends once more. There's only one thing to do for the first time this season. Let's turn out the lights.

City Back on Top

"Hello there. Welcome to the show a slim and trim edition v today. Just just the three something. Well, what are we talking about? Slim and trim shaggy TV, Nicole. I'm Adrienne Haley, the primly back with a bang the two Manchester clubs teams we will focus on United first permanent game. I game with the legal associate manager won't for visitors and tell me what Delaware had to come off so game one. Game. One highlight right Keller shorts on and to the Masiaka going. I see yellow value. Yeah. We only says. Throws his legs full sloppily. Yes. But it was a quick counterattack eventually provided the breakthrough United chore with the bowl Arash who did the rest or outstanding passed by by Luke show, pagoda Rochford warford committing numbers forward show, pixie Puckett even still even with the few numbers that what had back that is some inch. Poof it possum new show baffled you finish the easy. It was never easy though fee. Nine hundred to wait until the seventy second minute before extended around your scrappy goal at was to. Yeah. It was a scoop in the end. And again if schooling is run a play Jim is the full school. Being on the back foot for a lot of that second off and they somewhat against the run a play Wofford funding dig get their goal, but it came to late to really change anything the game Kuwait windings way through really well, taken go by by Cour, no less than what for dessert. I thought they were outstanding throughout and Kobe wanted on themselves not just behind but tools behind the finger beauty. Unfortunately, doesn't come from much. A win is a win though. United the had slightly more of the bowl than wolf shots on goal statistics. Tell a story had twenty John's eight of them on target outdoing United in that department and only socia- stop to the game. Bam the display cold it. The worst performance United of head sinc- took the helm, which is now now twenty games Stevie, would you? Concur. Was it that bad? Yes. It was completely outplayed. Listen, we always talk about the game's all about results, but I would suggest that Solska as well as getting results his team has performance on and as proponent performances goal. This was awful the yes, I would say this is what's the wolves and their Cup. I think that would be the one before that. So yeah, this was awful. That's the one I was thinking about which is where we left off. Really wasn't. It say this is worse. I thought it was performances. But, but yeah, I doesn't put this in any a better light this performance and to be fair here as much as going to be critical of Manchester United. I thought what was simply outstanding on the we should give them should give them their feared us, but Manchester United offered not a lot Bhai way of thought they offered not a lot by by by way of of taking this game as any Manchester United team, whom were we should do. Let alone this game being traffic. Again, you see the the threat that Manchester United poses on the contract outstanding. Woah, by Luke Shaw, managed by Marcus, rush word, but outside of that this doesn't say much as United a toll of over the causes game. Social also offered up sounds like an excuse Stevie lots of plants coming back from injuries coming back from international break member. They would they were missing ten. Players against PSA Lola's, still work at ease. That sounds like Joe defied supposedly twenty teams in the primarily on nineteen other teams teams going through. When you from Chechen today any of the big teams that doesn't come as an excuse alot to do that. You know, you're supposed to hold yourself their highest on you have to perform certain level every time you step on the field. And what makes this one worse than the wolves one for me as our home. I said different the rat home the getting pegged back and they're getting completely dominated and the middle of the field. I mean. Yeah. I mean, she really that's that. We've we've we spoke about only goodness shows, you what did you do to to prove deserve the and the one thing we we all shared was that. Well, it has to make sure there's not a drop between knowing the end of the season. Yes. The result. If performing we'll tell you what the United might be thinking a different thing coming into the year two Bill, and what's TV seeing a few weeks ago? I was oil pries for socia- given the five that they had injuries. Not. He never made it an excuse. He continued to put out sides that went to the opposition. I made running for the most part. No, all of the sudden you find yourself. I maybe it's it's. It's just a Sikkim stance of where we are right now that he's just on a new contract and the guys win. But no all of a sudden he's injuries. And again, this is Manchester United. He doesn't need meet attend that Manchester United every single international break have to corporate players Bill. We it's part and parcel of my djing a top club in any European league. Especially if you're Manchester United that was the case for says when he was there. It's nothing new or shouldn't be anything new novel for social, well, the performance say probably hasn't changed many opinions about whether the hiring of socio was the right thing at the right time. Check EFI you would you have done it. Yeah. I think I think he's he's done enough as manage oh did enough as to at least give given the chance as we shit ride. No. If you're thinking who's the right man, who's he right long tomb manager for Manchester United the only name that comes to mind. That's readily available is Portugal. And given the fact that he signed a five-year deal what just to a twelve months ago to try to get him. You have to get done your Levy. That's there's absolutely no guarantee there. So without securing this of socia- going into a very uncertain future. All the and that might just and you right back those steps. Well United stuttering victory. Coming after Manchester City it opened up the day in the league. It was the nearly topic is nearly bought it wasn't it. And it really was pretty much racehorses against cartilages for most of this. Right. Right. Right. From the word off Sergio guero. Pouncing on that the early ball layoff from banana Silva, and he did the rich. And I guess what this. Everybody thought the game's over the clinical closed the ball, donate Ellie, and that's a sugar finish from another show. Yup. Got in on the act himself under pool giveaway in the story of so much full season. But Glenrothes finished with shop understand trying to possibility back maybe planning for running for the rest of the season. I'm not sure it's got Baucus thinking this is often. You can't do this against Manchester City. There's not a whole lot for Fulham fans to chair about other than to see probably were too. Don't after twenty seven minutes, we didn't concede anymore. That's your highlight of your Saturday evening. But if it was a shadow on cities, it was a. It was a having to come off. After just ten minutes of the second half. It was described as precautionary by pet quad city, so comfortable and Bank on top by a point livable playing Spurs tomorrow on Sunday when you look at the road ahead from shoes to city. Well, it's kind of city necks that's mid week game in the Premier League before the. The Champions League games continue with palace and then the return against. I was looking at that and media road hedge. Consume with the situation. Tottenham and aided and the permanently clearly the twos fixtures stick. Oh. And if city wants you win the Premier League they're going to have to be at the best. And if they're going to be at the best after the best players and the question the best player of the best Jenner forward as he's us. We all know has ability. He hasn't quite quite ever caught and finally came. So you can take an a step though. So the question is can produce in fighter guidos for any life. It's pet calling it precautionary. We. I'm great between the lines. Yeah. The trouble is you don't wanna read too much between the lines and given how can you feel? It didn't really cause too much of concern. Other than is Hugo who has this injury as you. And we've seen season sees node. We're he's missed fall. Too many games in my opinion show any matches a city is concerned the other TV Riley says that with Manchester City big not just for the prima league here. They're trying to compete. A quadruple games are gonna come thick and fast. Big big games are gonna come thick and fast as use is not a like for like replacement for grow by any means. Well, these were the Premier League results on the Saturday returned to act shouldn't a big win the Boniface Southampton. The south coast Dhabi city Jimmy vodka on the school sheet taking care of ball Matthias and speeding this field. Let me legal wave goodbye to them at one of the least ever relegations, they are gone. Tavern. If you ever missing edition of the show, you can catch the audio version available on I choose everyday also on our website UCF c dot com. Plays wondering wondering just how they failed to notch free points, and how costly that be having finally hold in Brucie Dolman. Don't get another two points ahead of them. Again. At now lights were big winners. Stay in third place. Element of surprise for you Stevie that having gone come all the way back by Munich of now, let this happen. Yeah. I'm -solutely the head peg by Dortmund pressure on you know, when you've had the lead. And all of a sudden, you're level was only one team Fianna, and and that would be Dortmund. So for biotic to give two points Whealy. This is just she's criminal all the dune is helping dorm, and obviously, but the taking the pressure or so now it's gone from Dormund the pressure knows on buying if any buying dress. You you look at that game. And like you wonder how eleven does does never had trick any other weekend of the season problem? Does you play the better for ball? You create all the chances. It just didn't go for you. And then if you again, take another step back and look at documents performance against where they didn't know. They didn't know an awful lot. Somehow got three point stance. I keeping our in foolish which just kind of openings out for for the end. So if you're buying by no means dot the public, especially given the fact that are coming to you next week say they meet next Saturday now in Munich. Could well decide who's going to win the title. Then for me. I still think it's going to be by Munich. I think they're playing the better football. Listen understand a head right now they won this weekend. But nothing about about Dortmund for quite some time has been all that convincing by an very least in the Bundesliga have been good. Wins this game by ones detail. There are home so remain the favorites. Just little hiccup today. Should we say that is the Bundesliga old tied up? Finale. The best of the week we produce it the end of every week. This is some of the sites. You can see this week's edition. On our way, patriots YouTube cap. A leader mean, slim and trim addition of extra time today. Been hold on over three. Yes. We've only messy at action yet again today. VJ saying why do so many sports is always wanna push the narrative that mess? He's the greatest player of all time. Is it really that alternate? And we don't just enjoy his onto street. At would. I totally agree. You do. Okay. For new sports guy. You like what we have on? But we're gonna do it. We're always saying who's the grace and not just. Can you? Oh. Clin who thinks he is. He is. And plus the fact that sue off the need those something incredible. Then it keeps getting bro. That's why it gets bro. Because it does something. The makes you ill. Weekend. Well, he's the best gory of scene and. Keeps producing stuff rookie get. It's not just a mess. And not just the sport. Can every sport seem to have this beat everybody wants? It was a is. I also think kind of subconscious human element to this week. You want to feel the best player of your generation as you play all the time that we your generation is unreasonable type. So I think as old as it is. It's not going to stop anytime. She wants to know why do go keeps getting nutmegged so often on when they get schooled on our planes that precise these days or was it just luck that something tells me, he's not peel. A lot of that precise this practice. It do there's unfortunately as a goalkeeper for you to get quick movement of Sydney, explosive movements. You legs have to be part. You can't start start with your legs together. Is there this lower levels? Maybe not. But this never that. We talk about his new exactly what do you have a pranks that saving finishing no food or goalkeepers didn't have to after. No. This. I mean. Somebody's trying. Level. The best strike is a situation. Where is the biggest guy was going to be the easiest for me? And make it more difficult for the goalie and the shuck it said because the hype. You have to tell her that you, let's take the UCS show pasta rushland today. I mean, not is he threatened the eye of a needle from forty or fifty yards. No of a sudden take that up a notch to somebody like a lien messy. Yo, you know. Teary Anri who I would be again. So Kenny dive each them to put it through the legs of goalkeeper from four yards. Did do that with eyes clues as a keep it as it feel worse to concede a goal of that man than any goal? It looks roots. Because you knew how people are going to react. But as goalkeeper you knew that lesson there's nothing you can do about it to you. Go keepers union. We kind of side with each other. But then the people like Stevie who. Fail. Who you tell them? The one thing I would suggest and you can confirm this up in the one way ago hate more than any other way of getting nor documents going to see by getting chip. Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah. I've seen. I've seen goalies chasing Jason. Liz in training because b j. Chick for the halfway line. Like. Andre blake. Feel to no knows. Back though, maybe on the same says batmobile. That mobile figure that out. Is is the wind is funny. Est goal. You've been a lot of that mobile. I've been a positive. With funny. Goes to school. Posture that was. Had the reports that hit me back ones. But that was a preseason as a preseason really comb Mahfouz game back after me. Don't if this code, but with a couple of players always plant that whenever we played against don't we putting into the team. Yep. Him around with Sheila. You can't pick in the body. Oh, you just fire. It re of course, essential box because I'm telling you, so. So. Cutler guys favors. Well, well-known for roll these. They always stick. The cannabis. Is you filed is he's good. It stick it. And often obliged. Finally, this may go back to the chipping thing we were talking about is is Allah hundred swallow the play that can lead Toronto. Into the land of winning titles. He's trying to replace about Xi Jinping, essentially as debut school. Outstanding. How it was. It was simply outstanding play with the confidence on the guy that suggests that he can't be Jeevan replacement that being said one game. Grid is good game Greek game one and. Proves you know, Hoover's is in way. It's it's weird. When you look at his crib because he never managed to me the break for Swansea. Play for the problem. The problem is giving sale straightaway. As the Sean capable we set the bar and probably what he's been doing through. And I'm guessing why not really had this guys because on occasions he can do this has never been able to consistently. So. Let's we has to try and do you shouldn't exactly what he's capable, Sean. I mean the first goal well to off it doesn't even look because these there because he knows run though. I mean chips just incredible. So the guy knows what he's he has to be able to consistently. No, that's what he has to put together. Leila hasn't done before. I guess the questions we'll be enough of those occasions to turn Toronto into Titletown again. This time, we weren't considered them. Really as contenders time. It's very early in the season. Oh, yeah. Still much. That's right to. Checking turned into April long edition of extras. Fit. We shall see. All right. That will do it.

LADS#99 - EPL Recap, Why Does Bayern Suck, and MLS Playoff Roundup

"Oh. No, no. No. Thing of competitive, and I'm Martin Frazier. We are loud Americans discussing soccer better known as lattes. Okay today is November twenty seventh twenty eighteen in holy shit. Martin is here in Philadelphia. I was big lead up like guys we have a special guest today. But Martin was up in New York City today has driven down this the first time the last have been back together since when since my late August, it's too long men too long. I was just up in New York City. I was like, I gotta drive ten hours home. I'm gonna fucking stop in Philly. I got a broadcast tonight with Cav it felt so good driving over that bridge. Stop smiling all day every single day. And you know, like it feels weird being back because we've been living together for it was like six years or something like that. And then there's been a few months not seen each other. We've had a long distance relationship. And now the boys are back the lads are back together right now. And I was like messaging today. I'm like, hey, I wrote news for the show you want to check in some knows. And he went to podcast the library Jing beer there at like six thirty. And he's like, oh, I think I'm going to swing by. What? So I'm in smiled all day. It is awesome. Martin cheers real quick cheers to him back. Here's the being back. Well, before we get into our be review before we getting the Premier League before we get into geeking that we're both hanging out together. And I'm dropping my microphone. We do. You have the talk about something serious. I put something out on the Twitter today about that. We'd be paying special tribute to Kevin Lachlan. So Kevin Lachlan was essentially like the head account manager at the law firm locks law firm than me and Martin worked at. He reached age of sixty and died of sudden, heart attack, and it was very sudden and came out of nowhere death. And we just want to say that we the dedicate this to him his son, Jake who works at the law firm with us. He was an awesome guy that we've gotten really close with. And wanted me reason we're them up is like he was with day one. When we started lads, he was very much like about starting this like, you know, dumb ass podcast about us. Drink a beer talking soccer. He subscribed to us he listened. He would always by one of our shirts. I remember I gave him one of our lads sticker that I made. And like, yeah. This brand new iphone Slatter right on there. And what are you doing? That's like that has a precious nisi phone don't ruin it with our logo. And he'd always stop me and more and talk about like international soccer. And like Martin mentioned earlier. He was like one of the good ones. Yeah. So we definitely wanted to dedicate this in his memory and honor. It was. Those amazing getting a chance to work with him work for them and get to know him as well as we did. I don't think there was a weekend or a big soccer vent that past where he did not come up to one of us and talk to us about it. So the least we can do dedicate this episode to him and his family our thoughts with you guys. He also was such a cool, dude. Because I only like because there's tons of people you fucking work with and you pass them by and like you just all right? Just work with you. And like, but you'd be like one of the bright spots, you walk around work, and you see him it used to be a good mood because he'd always be asking about soccer, meet martyr idiots coming out of college knew nothing about finances like insurance, and he did all that he'd like sit down his office, and like innings shit wasn't how fucking do a checkbook. And like, what is this an insurance plan mean from work? I we don't do that stuff. And he'd always be so nice walk around with this headphones in like just talk to us, and you know, his son Jake. He's our age our heart goes out to him. So cheers. Cheers. The kevin. He was a fucking jam gone too soon. We love them. All right. Let's move into the podcast. We are trying shiner holiday cheer. We're in the fucking holiday spirit in the Marlins, Scrooge, I I've been talking shit about it since I've seen Christmas ornaments, go. There's a fucking yard by mind place, like a block away. And it's it's fenced in all the ornaments are fenced in and smack dab in the middle of it is Moore's Ville Christmas yard of distinction. And there's not a day that goes by just not like, oh only have only fought Christmas, dude. But this fear is good. Yeah. Okay. Well, the is good. It's a every drop of shiner is brewed and shiner Texas. There's actually a lot of our lads fellow lads Glenn Lawrence on the show from Texas. Shout at Texas and Houston Texans who are doing really well sports all nineteen oh nine brewery. This is pretty good. I give it like an eight point two. I like this a lot. It's not. Crazy. I'm not gonna like I'd get it again. Definitely especially as a good like winter beer, and it's like decorated kind of winter to with the reading green, obviously in the white. So yeah, I'm pretty much. I'm about this beer. I'm about it. I'm on board with this Christmas beer, it tastes you and taste like you're jerking something full and not the shitty beers that we have been drinking with whatever natty light fucking. But is your yard like this feels like a beer? So every drop of shiner is burden. Shaan or Texas is a good beer. That's that's have declared everything actually if you're from Texas. You're also great. So if you know someone from there, let them know that lads have proclaimed that shiner, Texas, we love you. All right, guys. Well, we're changing the format a little bit of the show where deciding to stick with kind of like top six Premier League. And also we're gonna start covering other leagues. We're talking about some boondocks league. Because all you guys bitch into us. And you know, what we're here. Listen, we listen because we bitch a lot. And you know, you guys want to talk about buyer Munich. Why are they like, you know, a dumpster fire right now, why is you've running away with it? What's up with the run? In LA elitists VS top of the table. I feel like not enough people are talking about this. So before you that we got some headlines international break is over so pretty pumped about that. Clank is officially back. Thank god. This is the weirdest break in audible because the one in September is just the shot to the heart. Just like, oh, man. I forgot about this. This one just sneaks up on you last two weeks in the middle of November. So thank goodness. It's over. I mean, I think I watched maybe one and a half international games. Then tired time. I watched the US men's national team lose did watch. We ended twenty eighteen with a losing record. So congrats US national team who have made zero progress over this time since we've not had a manager. And I was talking about this like how like my English friend saying Kef mate. Like, that's my impersonation. Kev, mate. You guys don't have a manager. What's going on like? Oh, yeah. I'm sad. Now. Thanks. You know, what I I just try not to think about it like global warming. And you know famine, I just don't think about it. Also hasn't national team manager. So yeah, we don't have a manager. They apparently denied interviews with top managers in the world. I I don't know there's direction with you. I didn't mean to get into it. Yes. Men's national team rant. But they're national break. Is there not only to rhyme me that there's no club football? But my teams can national team is also dumpster fire. Yeah. This is Applebee's one year down the road with no manager shits on fire. There's genuinely rat poison in the food, and please for the love of God the community begs you the neighborhood begs you hire someone just hire me hire anyone. I don't care if it's a failure. Or not just hire someone to get it over with rip the band. Yeah. I don't care not. I mean, that's where we're at now where I'd be like, okay. Like anyone? Okay. Moving on. Lord. Benner nicholas. Bittner is going to jail for fifty days for punching a taxi driver for a four eighty euro taxi fare. This is where I like to get like the gif of welfare from wedding crashers like what idiot. Idiot like kicking what an idiot. Yeah. How do you think benders going to do in jail fantastic? He's really good-looking. Now, he is Lord Benares the man, I would call people. He is the man in the common people. Look, he did that to the taxicab driver just to show that he to soccer players to can get drunk and freak out over five hundred ten break taxi drivers Giles, you know, what some might deserve it out that he had a soft gel. Maybe he's already broken, Geno. Joe? Yeah. I think that's what actually I don't think. It's bender's fall. It isn't. I think he was set up. I think that guy's was already broken that luminosity definitely because Lord vendors the best footballer ever to grace, this earth, specially arsenal people. You know? Can I guess what a time he was at arsenal which is him and from folk legend now the people whisper about him like he's like cramps or something is trying to stick in the holiday theme. Next topic. Sorry Boettner on Joe, you're fifty days in jail. Sergio romo's was accused or or not qs He was calm would be the. What's the thing? He was alleged. No, I don't think it's allege. I think he said he was doping, but there's not going to be anything against him. So yes, Sergia Rama's was pretty much said like, yeah. He was doping before the champion or was tested positive. He tested positive for doping after the Champions League. Final twenty seventeen. I think so apparently around must've been doping apparently, it's drug. That's not really a performance enhancer. But it's on the list of things you can't have. So I don't know what that means. I saw like someone on our Twitter arguing with barstool Sam. And you know, I was just like, okay. Like, I don't know anything about this topic. And honestly, like, I'm not I'm not a person to route four Sergio Rama's, but I'm not reading against him. Do you know what I mean? Like, I'm not like here like Rosser georamas because I think he can be kind of shitheads sometimes, but I like the thought of villain right soccer. So you know, what the factors you're almost doping? I kind of like it because it matches him like it just like he's the villain of soccer. We've designated him the villain. Good. He got caught doping and nothing's going to happen to them. Get the haters, even even more mad at him. Good. You know, what I'm not, you know, I'm not gonna I'm not too upset about this. Also, how much can you do in terms of doping? I don't even really hear much about like doping scandals in soccer. No, I mean, I don't think it's that big of a deal. Even if it's proven true that he was doping if that that fucking substance that medical medication medical medication, whatever that thing is if it wasn't helping him get better who the fuck cares. It's like John Jones testing positive for cocaine two days before he Vaughan Jones, which I'm bones ache, you two days before he fought, and what Daniel CoR MIR's as then it got kicked out of the for cocaine. I'm sorry cocaine doesn't make you a better fighter. It's like Sergio might make you angry, but it's like fucking Sergio Rambo's realme fucking line of cocaine before champions comedy. That's fair. That's that's a man fueled by cocaine. I mean, he says vodka and red bull. Look into that. Okay. Moving into more cocaine vodka fueled rage violence. Let's move on to Boca Juniors versus river plot in the what is it lib classic limited Toro does that have. It's the match everyone's been telling me I should be excited for like all of Twitter all fucking even some of our friends, it'd be like, can you believe these two rivals who've never met in this competition or playing in this final, Mike? It's Argentinian football. Everyone's been hyping this up. And the reason I've been height for it is because fans are like breaking buses of the teams. There's like fireworks people getting fucking sin. Like, I think people been killed like it's like fucking Pablo Escobar shit going on Argentina right now. Like full on like, I don't know if you'll like mafia like, what's what's narcos shit going on down there? And you know, I'm the game has been pushed to December eighth or ninth. Now, it's been pushed it because the game was canceled because of all the violence. I saw some guy said he spent like ten thousand dollars flying down there. And then he had to leave because he wanted to go to this match is like sorry, dude. We'll see sorry. The fans are such Astles. Two. Now it is now outside of Argentina. It might be in Miami. I heard the rumor is December eighth or ninth. So yeah, nothing. There's never crime or anything bad having in Miami, Florida down that Slee that is the best possible solution. Great segue. We should have actually they should have it over a couple of days and Florida and stretch it out stretch it out, and then maybe it'll burn to the ground. Actually, I think we're onto something Martin Trump. Let them know let them know berm Florida, burn Florida that we got a caravan coming from Argentina, though, not from other countries. These fans are crazy and put any care van people to shame. These does I remember I remember in every single for demo that I can remember Boca Juniors and river plot have been to the features teams featured teams on their demo. I've watched a couple of the documentaries going about their history and their von fucking history. It's like England. And the eighties, but they digressed instead of banning shit. And now it's all sneaky and fucking mob affiliated, and it's a scary bed way to watch soccer. Like have you seen a picture of their stadium? Like completely full just for a training session. Yeah. Imagine that times a million during game day. It's insane. Fucking people are like tying fireworks. Did you see that this mother like mother of the year taking her kid, and like like, she was wrapping drugs around her with duct tape, and it was fucking fireworks? Who are these people like I wanna know like for me, we get pretty rowdy games. I would never like, okay. I take that back. I haven't had the opportunity. I haven't had opportunity to get. Because it's like Philadelphia union. You know, so I don't know. I can't see myself going this crazy where I'm going to get in physical altercations for my team this bat this bat like someone's shit to me. I maybe. But like not to the like where I'm gonna proactively show up like guns fireworks. No. Yeah. Like, that's ridiculous. I'm I'm a little like a pub brawl, you know, Donnie broke into Donnybrook with hands with weapon. Yeah. It seems like there's like fucking swat teams there. And now I ax and like a cake Greece or whatever Athens AK yet. There those pictures today from the Champions League match where people are like getting covered in blood and fireworks. There's like pyrotechnics shit. What is this? What like what like some days? I'm like, oh, I look at this. I think it's like a picture from the eighties like we're talking about and like or in some really shit town in South America or something. No, this is happening here today in the Champions League. Like, I don't man violence isn't cool. And this is the you know revocations now we have to move the game somewhere not in your own country. This is being held like magin. I I don't even know what to compare this do taking the Super Bowl away. I guess I like eagles vs Dallas versus Dallas and putting it and Argentina him. We're gonna take it and put in like what's it called in Argentina? I'm trying to think what some big city. They're boy ntas areas. Wayne is Wayne is areas. That's that's their big city. Right. Pompous pompous. Pro main Tom's you're just looking at my map. I am. Okay. Santiago's TI go. Okay. All right, guys. Let's move in to some Premier League shit. Let's start this shit off with Tottenham versus Chelsea. I think the first thing we have to say is Tottenham is no longer sneaky good. Yeah. I think we can see that. They are. We've been saying this in the podcast weekly. Look at Todd. I'm just creeping up the table. Like, no one's really talking about him. Yep. We're talking about them. Good Tottenham, really good. And you know, what we've been saying for weeks Souris gonna get exposed. And kinda looked like it happened ending scoreline is three one Eriksson with to assists Erickson back on his assist rally. Sawn Kane on on the scoreboard deli. Right. The other one. Jerus- with the constellation goal. But martin. It's Todd good. They are really good. I think they're now sitting in third right now above Chelsea at the double check that. But what are your big takeaways from this? I think two big positives for Tottenham one huge negative for Chelsea starting off with the Chelsea. This was the game where sorry was completely exposed in the past six games that shows has gone. Yeah. They've been undefeated, but they've had four draws out of that. And this game the movement by son who was absolutely brilliant on the right side or left side. And then couple that with Harry canes movement and the danger that he fucking presents to any type of defense just rattled that back line of Chelsea Devitt. Louise was just a fucking shit show, and he was such a liability. Louise, it was like, oh, yeah. This is why devil era minded me. Like, why Chelsea got rid of them in the first place? Like, why PS g got rid of him? He was just such a liability. And I saw a stat today. He was like. Responsible for like out of all the goal Chelsea of given up like sixty percent of them. Yeah. He was fucking horrible especially on the sun goal where he just leaped out to try and tackle on sun cut by him and was one on one to keep her at that point, which he buried, but I think individual efforts by sun, and Allie and Kane and Ericsson all of them having brilliant. Fucking days is a huge spot for Tottenham. And this is this Tottenham team that can come out and beat teams. This isn't the Tottenham team that you don't take seriously anymore. This isn't the Tottenham team that was beat two zero by Manchester City a few weeks back. This is Tottenham reinvented for yet another time under poverty. No. And God Tam do they look dangerous but fucking Chelsea figure? You're shit out girl Murata again, dude, I love it. Remember when you said is Miranda better than new Kaku. We'll get suck. Dick, and Lukaku sucks. We're gonna get to look. We're gonna get to look. Murata again, another huge liability but not behind goal in front of goal. He had so many miss opportunities. And it's just shocking hazard has to be punching himself in the head. Like, why did I go to Real Madrid? Why not Real Madrid because when you're dealing with this guy who was every Madrid in one you gotta he's got to be looking at them. Like what the fuck like the he's so used to Diogo cost of being so clinical in front of goal and eat and just placing the ball right there for my dude. Like, I'm literally putting at your feet, just you. There's no way you can miss this. And he misses him Murata. It's just like he could be so on his day. So so good and then on his worst as just so so bad. There's no consistency with them. Right. I don't see any consistency with Murata. Like, he's like, I'm not saying he's not like these not good. He's sometimes he's great. But like in these games he's turning into kind of ghost and like as a guy who's an arsenal fan who. Heels of marquee signings being ghosts all the time. I would feel bad to be a Chelsea fan right now in sorry, obviously, eight a pack of cigarettes after this game like feel pain, I feel bad for this pack of cigarettes. But where does Chelsea go from here? I mean, I I've said this before I'm going to say it again, I genuinely do not think we're all too should start. If you look at chose movement. Once they brought jerus- on in the second half, they at least had a centerpiece to their tax when they could heave the ball to who would control it. And then dish it out to William r hazard or pager on the flanks and with Miranda. He doesn't even offer that part and his attack. So if Moronta doesn't offer that hold up play nor the poaching ability. Why the fuck would you play over Jrue jerus- at least going to offer that hold play? And he got his goal today. Fucking Brogan cross in and easy header for jerus-. So let the big beautiful man play from grants Cup. Cup-winning? Yes. Thank you. Sorry. Just if you don't say it makes me twitch. So yeah. Tottenham great. That's going to lead into something else, which I'm gonna get to. But before we get into the top four top who's gonna win the Premier League race Marin. We have we have to get go to Manchester. United no draw to Crystal Palace. What are your? What are your? What are your thoughts? Shoot me into face. She she you in the face. Okay. I've been playing a lot of red dead. So my my dad is pretty good perfect. Right here on the nose because Kevin learn watching Manchester United is like being punched in the nose. You know, it doesn't hurt a lot. But it's enough to make you cry and wish for the time before your nose. Was it makes you do that? Give it it. Makes you go. Another audit. I didn't think I could hit that active. Yeah. Yeah. What the fuck is. Sorry. My cats back in the room, and he staring at Martin because he hasn't seen Martin like fucking months is just now being a weirdo anyway, Manchester, United I like I don't get excited to watch them anymore, which is like sad. That's that was my biggest takeaway where it's like I've seen this before. I've seen them beat you Venice. And then I see them draw Crystal Palace. Like, I don't know where you go with this team like Lukaku Alexi Sanchez combining for only five goals this this season more in that's their two biggest signings. You look at how much they're getting paid. And I hate to say like look at how much I sound like the fucking horrible commentators, you know, on BT sport. And these players are getting paid through thousand pounds a week. And like, but like sometimes you have to get a salary because they're not meeting the production. What their wages, which are inflated are being made. So what is the problem is it just like the tactics marine? Oh, I think it also has to be the players the players like are performing in. They're playing down to their competition. Right. Yeah. I mean, I think at the end of the day. It is an attitude problem at Manchester United there are a lot of issues with the coaching staff. I do not think Marino is the right man for the job. And I think that is exceeding the obvious at this point because as a fan, and I hope that a lot of Manchester. Not a lot of soccer fans would agree that it comes to a point where it does not matter if Manchester United is winning all these games if you play fucking fun soccer. If you make me wanna watch you. If you make me not care about the result just care about the team. That's all I ask for and whether it be the players individual attitudes or the attitude that has dropped down from Jose Marino. These players are not paying like they wanna win every game. They're playing like every single game is a Cup. Funnel. They're taking this lacksadaiscious approach against not only the small teams like CPI. But the big teams as well. And they're just getting found out there getting them barest. I was watching the highlights of this game. Again, that's not with my brother. And he was he said ninety percent of the highlights are of Crystal Palace. And I was like I know that that just lack of drive like what the fuck it's it's time for an overhaul fucking fire. The cacti mutiny give me a mutiny. That's what I need some captain Jackson. And like all I keep thinking like all the hope that's been going in the past couple of years during this rebuild when you get the pug bus. You get the message when you guys lot. And like, you know, all I can think of is like, you know, I'm going back to all the hope that you had a few years ago when marina was come in this new regime new football after coming through years of the David Moyes Louis van goal. And it is feels like you're sitting in a limbo, right? Now in your current sending what seventh in the league right now. That's just like you gotta take. I mean, we gotta take a look in the mirror. Rightly you guys have to figure out like who are you? And I feel like you guys still don't know because some days you'll play this fantastic football. And you've said this on the podcast like on our day. We can pretty much be anyone. But we're not consistent. I would agree with that. Like, you have the talent to be almost anyone in Europe when you are playing fun attacking football, and you're all in sake. And I feel like the manager isn't getting you guys ready to go and play that or he's changing the tactics. Where it's like, you know, it's like Odal Beckham saying like, you know, I do the eagles secondary. Wasn't that good? I know I'm using on American football analogy right now, but Oto Beckham Sol weakness, and they weren't like saying like why were you throwing the deep ball? You know? It's like, Paul pope news. He can dominate these midfielders, but he's not giving the opportunity to do. So you know, he's being played too far back in these. And I don't know what the mysterious thing going on Lukaku. I feel like there's a weird like. Thing like around him right now. I don't like I feel like Marino's falling out with him as well. I think we're just a whole squad. I don't know. Yeah. I think in the past. Marina was always known for now is in mired for his ability to take attention away from players and focus it on himself through his crazy fucking antics. But this year these this past two three years this whole Mench. Knotted experiment has been a showcase of man. Just throwing or those Marino throwing Manchester United players Menges knotted tactics under the bus while setting some but little to no responsibility or accountability. So this feels like shit relationship with the manager. I can't I don't think I can give you a list of four players that he hasn't talked shit about at one point or another in his campaign with Manchester United probe even Heff who's. Yeah. He's been having. I'd like to his pedigree of that year. But as you know, he's not really a lot of help in front of him. And then the big rumors going on right now he might be leaving going to PS g Ventas obviously Real Madrid every year because of a bad fax machine. Good for the. Yeah. Again what? You can pretty much send a man to the moon by touching on our phone, but a phony fax machine can't sign a goalkeeper. What year is this? So I don't know. I really don't have an answer mentors. United all this is my big takeaways like when I see them unless they're playing a top sixteen. I don't have any motivation to watch them. And I think that's probably the most damning thing. I save I'm interested. I'm just not excited to watch them. And I think you would agree. Yeah. They're they're basically boring shit to watch on the only reason I've watched them now is because of stubborn pride and stubborn love, and I'm going to stick with my guns. I don't think we're not gonna last the year. I think Marino is at the center of a lot of the problems with this Manchester United team, and as long as United continued his fucking experiment. I do not see point. I do not see a reason. I don't see a bounce back from Reno. I I don't see the light at the end of the tunnel at this cut ties. Do you think I my my one quick thought is like do you think is a relationship where you don't like you have a girlfriend? You don't you can't find someone else right now. So just stay with them because they're the only option you have like, you're dating someone and you think oh like I could bring up with them. But then I'd be alone. And there's not really a good suitor waiting for me. If you think that's what made us, you know, he's doing right now like Josie Marino's the best option right now, they don't want to break up with them. Because then they're like fuck like, we can't find anyone better or you like you get thoughts like never going to bring up this person. I wouldn't find anyone better like one of those kind of mindsets. Yeah. I mean, I saw report last week. I think that said that. Is hanging on by the strings, and that Manchester United just doesn't have the target in mind. And and I say, and I'm going back to what I hoped arsenal was going to do two years ago. Eddie how gimme Eddie how if we if mentioned knotted cannot get sedan. Give me a young coach giving me a I because there's United they fucked up on Evan Moya's because they want they want the big name. They're not going to go for like Eddie Howe or any of these other young aspiring Premier League managers because they want they want the big names 'cause they're man just United. They've always had the big names and. Not working out. All right moving on to another red team two teams actually arsenal versus bud. Gritty win for the gunners. Two one win seventeen games, unbeaten in all competitions. I will say that's that is kinda shitty. Because there's a lots of draws in there as well. But seventeen games on being none the less. I'm very happy board myth is a tough side. And like I'm not just trying to say that as an arsenal fan. I think born king is is a team that can sneak out a win against top sixteen on on their best day something born misses the new Burnley of this year. Yeah, it's easy to be maybe a baby win from the worms to the cherries cherries. Yeah. The cherries. I wanna find out some dirt about Eddie Halicki eats. Like he keeps like a thing of Shari's like. Like, he keeps thing toenails in his closet or something like something. Like disgusting. Something Sean Dyche ask are you googling like dirt on anyhow right now. All right. This is gonna be first reported by last podcast. We're gonna find out some dirt about Eddie house. So anyhow gossip is gossip girl. Anyway, great great win for the gunners sitting right now. And they're comfortable. I think we're in fifth. Yes, right behind Chelsea. Yeah. I am very much pleased with a Bob on who is now at the top of the goal score sheet with eight eight with Sergio guero, I believe for top Premier League scores feeling is low so far. There hasn't been like a runaway. Go score this year in the Premier League. Like last year Salah was often running the year before was obviously Cade often running. So in what is your take away from this match? My big thing is Tarare dominating the midfield. Again. I love him so much. I think he is such just a goon in the mid field of just a bulldog and it up a Bobby on Bobby yank sorry coming in clutch. Once again in all his goals have been in the second half. So he's Mr. clutch. Now for arsenal. And I'm rumors about Mussa than Bela coming to arsenal from Barcelona because he's falling out of Barcelona. I'm just really excited about this arsenal side, we're back for so back back back back back back. I agree with you. Lucas today is fucking phenomenal in the midfield watching him. He just bought it from start to finish. And he's almost a Kante type where he can intercept he can tackle. And then he can spring the counter attack the attack that comes after the defensive maneuver that he just pulled off brilliantly. So I've been impressed with him the entire the entire year so far, but I like how I am really doesn't play the pride game. He doesn't play the status him. We saw it from the beginning of the season where he would start bombing or lock is depending on the opposition bringing the other around the sixtieth minute. Then we saw it here again when our snow played born myth. He left at home. He wanted a gritty tougher stronger squad. And a lot of people were looking at that being like, I wonder what that means about what I think is shut the fuck up. The manager knows how to use his squad. How to make? Squad better for certain different types of opponents. The guys getting paid for a reason. Yeah. The do the dude is getting paid because he knows what he's doing this ship. Yeah. Let's let's back off tonight doesn't he knows this shit. Seventeen games being seems like he has a fucking formula lost shit. Yeah. This guy knows he might be heading to buyer so p. We'll get we'll get to that. But the only thing is born Memphis, I stronger side than usual this season. And that defense of our snow was still shaky. There were still some opportunities for for myth to break in. But if if there's can fix the defense that's gonna be a team of the future right there. I'm sorry. I'm just so excited about this arsenal side. I Martin knows. I've not been excited about arsenal. Since we've known each other. Yeah. And this is the first time where Mike dude. Well since the lesser season. I had a little bit of hope because we were really we came in second. And we were right there for a bit. But this is the first time, I know we're not going to win at all. But I'm just excited that we're playing exciting football is seems like we're making a push for the top four and our manager seems to get shit together. Also, he's been watching peaky blinders to learn English in peaky, blinders the Phuket blowing this. Is one of my favorite TV shows of all time. Killian Murphy, just you know, there's always a couple of guys you look at it and go like, you know, I'm not gay killing Murphy's one of those for me where I'm just like would would absolutely would Jesus I need a pause. All right. That's cool. I just imagined like Amri show on the sidelines. You fool can. Sulking like you blowing me bus like shouting on the sidelines and ozo- Fook put step in it. And like, sir. Like, what are you your friends your? Yeah, he's but he's like he's like talking nights English slang. This is horrible. I hit this. This is a nightmare Birmingham accent. Voted do. That's how that's how talking like Arthur talking like autho awesome. So yet arsenal is back baby. We're not gonna win the league. But I'm saying right now, I said it before we we did our early season predictions at arsenal. Coming in six up saying top four finish. At this point. No, I still say that. Chelsea Tonto for so good. Yeah. Moving on to Liverpool man city. I'm not gonna spend a lot of time. Man city. Thrashed West Ham three nil by the first half and then four notified off of Sergio guero, obviously phenomenal every everyone for now. But I don't want to go into band city, if your city fan listening, this you knew your good pet was still disappointed to that's the that's the fucking kicker. Just rash West Ham. No problem business as usual. No, no, I do. Now. I could do so much. Fuck you do I was just like. I was just like pep- like he I don't understand the I want to understand pet. But I feel like peps thing is not to be understood he could win the Champions League by like six note bar slow. Like, did you see how many balls are giving away the backline? It'd be like what are you talking about dude? The guy is like a t one thousand like Terminator like the guy does not think doesn't have human empathy and emotions always thinks football. He's like the most football football guy there is and for me I like thrashing west hand four. No, I think should be done. He's like we should have won that by ten. He goes in every game. Like if we don't win by ten goals. That's a loss. That's a failure. It's it's like Bill bell. Check like, oh, we didn't beat the team by like forty or Nick Sabin. We didn't beat them by forty points. Well, we obviously were dog shit. And then Liverpool. Also with the nice win. I'm not going to go into that Moussalli believe another goal. Most long. Yeah. Is now risk for the seventy games. He's been a part of he's been a part of seventy goals some ridiculous that line. I saw today gave an I my brother. Fuck abe. Yeah. Basically. But given I are similar in terms of the way that we both hate things irrationally, and we were both bitching about Salah today. And we were agreeing with each other one-season wonder he is he's a seven goes. You're absolutely wrong. Because if you have Lutely, right? He said seven goes season. He's disappointed all sorts of metrics. And we were going back and forth about this guy. Okay. Now, most is he's great. I would put a probably I'm not going to do top in the world rankings right now. But I mean, I put him in like top twenty players right now. He's he's phenomenal. I think he's easily like own say easily. But I think he's been like probably one the best player. Liverpool. I mean compared to everyone else. I mean, they're getting in the things about that Liverpool win another tight pretty win for Liverpool. And they're just being so consistently early. Two points off man said he wanted to my question to you Marin. I'm not gonna get into the games. Obviously, these two great tease beating lesser sides. Is it a two horse race? Now is it just Liverpool and man city competing against each other. And then third and fourth places between like arsenal Chelsea Tottenham where they're fighting for their own Champions League spot and do they're going to run away with it between themselves. I'm gonna go one step further end say city in the next month is going to turn it into a one horse race. I think say that we've been lucky so far this this time last year city had already extended like a ten point lead or some shit. I think city is to consistently great brilliant fucking super at every single game and Liverpool is bound to drop a game or two and. I genuinely thing that said is just a step above all the rest of the competition. I would fuck in love if taunt Chelsea. Oh, no, God Jesus. No, Kevin kryptonite, brother. But I I would love if it was a close race through the end. But I see within this month. Dunn's? Oh with a close race. Let's say city, edges it out and starts pool. Way delusion I agree with you city is not only winning. They are dominating rushing and city is literally just scalping. They are scalping people's fucking heads. Christopher Columbus small Paul want genocide the whole non I was thinking glorious bastards like I want my Nazi skins yourself. Inglorious bastards San testing best Quentin Tarantino movie, I'm saying hot take. It's my degree with you. I I really liked that movie. I think it's my favorite Gwen Tarantino movie. I would say that or. God damnit say Pulp Fiction. No. See Pulp Fiction that much. And I I'm not enough soccer. No, definitely not enough. So I would say Django and chain is also a new one. So it's unpopular but fuck you get off your high horse. I'm just like high horse. There you go. I'm all about Christoph waltz. Yes. He he's just fucking. So. Yeah, there's also really like Reservoir Dogs. I know it's like hips her to say like, oh, his first movie where you know, like Reservoir Dogs. Just fucking sick, Mr. pink. Oh my God. Steve Bush, EMMY amazing the tortures in what ways playing the music, and you guys here spoiler. All right. So that was our Quentin Tarantino podcasts moving have we're talking to have a less guys. And it's only going for two seconds. Martin Barnes is cringing right now. He's sticking out dry heaving. The only reason I bring it up is is because we had the unrelated podcast guys on here. Martin I want to I want you to hear this since we had on relegated podcast on our podcast. Who are the Atlanta? United f c do you want to hear what's going on with? Atlanta. United f c you're ready for this. Yeah. Three wins seven goals Ford one goal against and they just blew out the New York red bulls in the first leg of the semi final. So you're here. So I just wanna say Atlanta United f c fans of the show. You're welcome. If you're not checking out there show. It's a great show. They go and talk about Landa United see culture because they're fucking dominant. And they're probably gonna win. They're probably gonna win the Cup. And then I honestly don't know what happened importantly, Kansas City. I don't give fuck because I'm on the Atlanta United f c train right now. So I'm hoping for Atlanta versus Portland because I don't know anything about sporting Kansas City, which. I hate these molest teams trying to imitate the European teams like Sporting Lisbon's sporting Kansas City, your Miami's kinda cool, but they're Miami. That's the name. Yeah. That is. Thought we talked about this. You didn't know that is full awful fringe show. Inter Miami get the fuck out of here this. Oh, so much disgust come over your. Yeah. And you wonder why US soccer's in the dump into Miami get the fuck. I- beckham's. Yeah. Fuck coal Beckham's core. All I seat Beckham Beckham soccer club hot fucking midfielder club. SC Beckham ac- soccer club fucking inner Miami. You genuinely upset. All right. So that was talking I'm molest moving over. Well, Martin for the first time ever we are talking Buddhist league so buyer Munich is currently in fifth they drew for chew on for tuna tuna S C C C something. Okay. Again, we may know like teams the Buddhist like we do watch this league. But mostly when it's like fire and Dortmund watch Chaka when it's western McKinney. Red bull Leipzig's fun Mussa bucket. Bob blog, I can never see their name. They they had Greenwich there. Once why like entity Joe, oh chichi forgot about that. Before the grave blonde pair did he have Bundy. I don't know. Anyway, a lot of our questions that are going to be coming soon are about why does buyer Munich suck. Menu has a forty three percent save percentage right now I saw from Bleacher report today, which is abysmal for someone who's been regarded as the best goalkeeper in the world the past couple of years Martin, I'm going to hand this off to you. Why do they suck? Why does Byron Munich suck right now? Is it just because they're old? They're manager. Not know what the fuck is doing. Is. It just what is it? What is what is going on Munich? Is it the monsters? Did they steal their talent? What's happening? I think it's it's got to be the simplest solution. KISS kiss. Keep it simple. Stupid olden mats hummels drone. Bo Tang, Rebrith Rovan even Muller, even though in TAOs key to certain extent, this is an older team and they've been dominant fucking dominant dominant for the past ten years ever team's going to have a downfull and shocking. The arthritis and old people diseases hit you like a son of a bitch, and it seems to have plagued by Munich. And I haven't seen Byron this tepid this shitty and a very long time. So I I'm excited to see what the do in January shift. They try and son anyone because they said they're not signing HAMAs to a permanent contract, which I think is dumb because I think he's a great player for them. And I heard a rumor today that they're going to rely on Renato Sanchez to be their revival. The guy. Who is last year playing for Swansea city? Couldn't play for swan get on the fuck. Marquel Foltz bust. Honestly, I think it's the manager. He has no idea. What the fuck? He's doing. And then the ownership today said, hey, like, we have full trusted him are our biggest thing is trying to, you know, make it to the knockout rounds we're gonna stick with our manager, which is kind of like a backhanded thing. Like, okay. Like are we giving up on the boondocks league? Because I think they're nine points behind dormant, which isn't like it's a lot. But for Piran, it's not a lot. You know? I mean when they're not playing like toughest competition has the boondocks league gun better. I think so I think Leipzig is proving to be consistent. Kebob blog. I can never say her name Bursch more. Fuck fuck, you Bursch mocking off for all you non German speakers and could understand Kevin perfectly. Why said it right? German listeners. Absolutely. Yeah. I think the competition's gotten tougher. I mean, we used to make fun of the Buddha's league. I think has gotten a little bit tougher. And I think Byron has taken advantage of years, maybe like how lebrons taking advantage of the east for so many years in the NBA when it's just been such dog shit. Now, it's gotten harder of more stars. And you know, a little bit more America town got a little bit more Merican muscle hanging out in their Christian, which also we're gonna get the Dortmund talk. But. Play Crispell sick might be headed to the Premier Li anyway buyer, Munich, we're going to address it again in the questions briefly. But I think it's definitely the age. But only thing that's the best cop-out. I think it's just you know, I think they've gotten too comfortable. I think the biggest thing of buyer Munich the become way too comfortable thinking that they can just on name itself just dominate people and name itself anymore. We've seen a now of Manchester United. We're seeing right now for Real Madrid. A name itself is not enough. If you don't have the talent. No, I would completely agree with that. I mean, I think it's a multifactorial demise of Byron. And. Oh, yeah. SAT? I read that in a book this week. And I think the North Carolina. No, okay. I had to leave. I Virginia to get that talk to me. All right Dortmund is crushing it. That's all I have to say dormant is in first place. Christian pulisic might be signing. A huge some say he's worth almost one hundred million dollars from Hershey, Pennsylvania, the American. Shout to bridge doorman there. I would love for during the Buddha's because Barbie winning every year is like, yeah. Of course, it's like taking taking out the trash every Monday. They're like. Yeah. Of course, they're going to win it dormant winning it on my God that town awesome. I saw my cousin Luke at thanksgiving. He went to the Dortmund Athletico Madrid Champions League game. Oh, that's so fucking cool. I was fucking. He showed me pictures from it, the yellow wall and everything in the guy does your watch soccer. I was leery. Like, I'm going to fucking murder. I was just like Luke, you got to be kidding me. He's like, yeah. My friend has asked me I went to go visit for the weekend. He said he wanna go. I went up to you. I was like. Now, briefly lollygag Real Madrid sucks in LA Liga. They qualified for Champions League today. But they got embarrassed by abras Eibar. I'd mar Eibar I took a Bill a pill and bar three nil. Is a tie the sign. They're meant the interim coach and they made them they're like permanent coach manager. Sorry. They qualify for the Champions League. But I don't see in the universe where they went four straight. I don't think they're scoring enough goals. I Real Madrid's defense is super suspect. I think Sergio Ramos who brought up in the beginning. The podcast is a show of himself. And they're not scoring goals. Does the big part the lack of renew think it's just a lack of Rinaldo? I think the lack of Rinaldo who used to be their goal supplier. He's going and now these other guys are trying to pick up the pieces. What do you think? I think that's exactly right. I don't think you realize what you've got until it's gone Rinaldo. Was was perfection. We're not it would score from any area on the fucking pitch. He would score taverns. He'd score strikes. He'd score free kicks each score penalties. And he kept the confidence of that Real Madrid team high when you don't have that guaranteed goal score when you have Bensimon leading line Gareth bale. Leading the line who are both fragile human beings. You're going to have droughts. You're gonna have shitty fucking attack. You're just not gonna have that confidence to do what you are capable of. And Ramage just getting found the fuck out on the and I think it's pastime to hit the panic button in legal, but at the same time still crushing it in the champion's league. So I don't understand it. I just don't I don't know how people can be so fan fucking tastic in the Champions League. The best of the best movie. It's Real Madrid's competition. Yeah. Also, they pay the champions forget severe quick shot Lally guess Avia as the topic league severe. I know we're Premier Li Comber smarten or Premier Li komo's but we have to admit Lita is probably the most competitive. I know I went to did not. Yes. Yes. The closest degree. It's not the most competitive is the closest right now severe is at the top of the table Barcelona right there in second. We got we got a tunnel race in LA Liga for the first time. What like a decade? Yeah. It feels like first time. It's not right or. Barcelona Barcelona still great, but so ours is her and little Golden State Warriors drama. Bailey. Or USA Mosa Meuse up pantley one night. He was up night all night playing fortnight years of a new game. Just didn't show up the practice the next day. So fuck fuck millennials are moving on. Here are are questions. I have are discord put up right now Martin. So he's questions are brought to you by stadium. Seen dot TV the best place to find the best bars restaurants. Parking. Got it got it for all your favorite sporting events. You want to go check them out. So you can get the best deals when you go out to some of your favorite sporting events. I'm starting to get drunk. Okay. I can tell when I when I start thinking about that. I'm sorry stadium seen. Okay. They also have a bunch of other podcasts on their Bruce talking soccer, our friends, Dave two foot talking than show PA they also have Buckeye muscles game date tourist sorts of shit. Go check them out stadium. Seen dot TV. We love them. All right moving the questions. Opening question is from Grizz twenty eighteen this is from our discord channel, which is like a chat room where you can go chat with us and other people who are fans of the show. He says which Premier League player is most likely to sit down and have a beer on the pot now before you answer this the cutting stunt who's a member of the discord channel says Mendi and. Then Logan s you helped us found the discord channel said current or past players because if I say past I would say, Tim k Hiller, Peter crouch, and my honestly my first player to my thought, it'd be Peter crouch. Yeah. But I'll present the question to you who is most likely to sit down and have a beer on the podcast. I feel like it would be someone who we haven't talked a lot of shit on. Or it might be someone. We talked a lot of shit on because he'd like to talk shit on us. So like shoot the shit right back. I think Phil Jones for two reasons one. We talk way too much shit about Phil Jones. So he should get a chance to talk shit back and to because he's going to be out of a job soon because he can't defend were shit and need something else to do. So he should come on podcast. I wanna say smoking, Jack Wilshere. Yeah. Rips him six of Jack the guy looks good time allegedly. Who's your dream guests who's your dream guests for lads from the Premier League? I would have to say this is all right. So I'm gonna serve manager Arsene Wenger's, my dream dream, sir. Alex is mine. No imagine having wine like a little vino little like little vino with Wang or and ceramics God. I just want. I wouldn't even talk. I'd be like I'd be like you guys talk. I want to hear what you guys say. I would not like we'd sit down at a dinner for three hours. I'd be like talked teach me everything tell me about the clash and their thousands. Just like like, I was like talk about William Faulkner talk about shakes just like sit there and listen to them philosophize about James Joyce shit. All right. The next question comes from Anthony show. He says are this much wetter. Atlanta score podcasts are Crystal Palace. The new stoke on a cold rainy night. Ooh. A shot at you Martin. No. That's actually a pretty good point. Though is is is Crystal Palace. The new gritty team the beat. Yes. I would say, yes. Because they have taken it to arsenal. And chelsea. And and mentioned none did so. Yeah. A cold rainy night in London. Yeah. I think Chris palaces that new like dog team. They used to be a team where he'd be like up there probably gonna get relegated. Now, they're just that late. Like, they're they're kind of like that person at work. You don't want to run into where you're like fuck we're about to have a long conversation. I'm not going to get out of. And you're kind of stuck. You're just like. Well, this is happening. It said because I know exactly who you're talking. No, we're not going to mention. Next question comes from our Instagram. The first one is her Mark Waugh Raqi says, I know y'all are more Premier League based. But can I forgot marks Virginia? He's he's he's from Virginia. The y'all and y'all, but can we talk about why is buyer Munich struggling so much season? Brooklyn is wanna come bound that because our Carreira three asked the same kind of the same question. He said I knew guys mainly prime. But can you talk about what the fuck is going on Meyer? He's a little bit more aggressive. I was watching at work and yelled out son of a bitch when they shit the bed again. I think we address that earlier buyer Munich. It's just old I feel like they really don't have an identity. I think they've been dislike relying way too heavily on their name itself in their brand. And honestly, I think the players have such just like have gotten such big heads like, oh, we can take anyone we're buyer Munich, and they're not emulating buyer meetings to me during the con- this Weinstein that the Philip lobs. There's no leader who's the captain. I don't even know what the captain is anymore of by Munich do. It's I think it's mother is it molar. I think the start. You from the start. Uneven story. Like, I don't know. Like, I don't know who the face of. This is Linda douse key who just got us fifty of Champions League goal this year. I guess, but he's also kind of like becomes a ghost in like. And he's one of the best strikers of all time. Yeah. It's. So. Yeah, that that is our podcast guys. Thank you so much for chiming end. The latter backtra tonight more. Get fucked up Martin are you ready to go get fucked up. I think it's about that time. All right. Well, thank you guys were hanging out. And we love you. Sometimes.

Loud Americans Discussing Soccer

LADS#96 - Premier League Week 12 Recap

"Oh. No, no. No. Thing of hey, I'm competit-. And I'm Martin Frazier. And we are loud Americans discussing soccer better known as lads. Today is November thirteenth twenty eighteen. And there's new soccer on forever. I mean, there's MLS, but premier-league European soccer. They're all taking a little low nappy poo while the international brace going on, but more Sutton, man. It's the most horrible time of the year to be a soccer fan like international break. And then of course this past weekend. The two other teams that are love both lost for our Lawson Formula one and then eagles sucked big one against the Cowboys. So that sports depression is back baby. Yeah. I don't wanna talk about that football. Because the eagles are just making me all sorts of press, not Krista palace. It's it's this fucking sucks right now. Anyway, today, we have you know, Manchester Darby baby we got Chelsea cylinder feet it. But kind of is it a good undefeated feeling right now? I guess we have pool continuing winning ways we have arsenal scraping by with the draw Tottenham kind of winning which Sturgis sneaky good. I don't know. Like, we keep not talking about Tottenham, but they're like in fourth right now. So but before we get into that. We were unable to a Thursday prediction podcast because I had to do a wedding for my friend, Paul. And I just wanted to let you know. Because Martin I don't think I told you about Paul's vows have I. No, not yet. Paul is a diehard esta Villafane, which is just sad as it is. But in his vows while I was doing the officiating. He said in his vows that I know you must really love me because the through three years in the championship that takes a lot of love. So good onto coal. Congrats the poll into coal. It was an awesome wedding. There's an Esa villa cake. I got very whisky drunk danced and just just a little pointed everyone if they're in their early twenties or mid twenties starting to go to weddings. The best feeling is not bringing date, and like it can be fun having a date. But it's also like there's no stress you don't have to worry about them getting drunk. I guess you have a girlfriend or a fucking wife then. Yeah. I guess you gotta bring em but not having a date to a wedding is pretty tight. Go stag if he can I mean, huge shout, Nicole and Paul so sorry about esta villa literally turning into dumpster fire. But yeah, I think the last time that we went to a wedding together was our friend Chris wedding. And it was like six of who didn't go with the day, and it just got messy. And that's the only warning. I'd put on going alone. It gets messy real quick. Yeah. Me and Marin got cut off from the alcohol which resorted to me sneaking other tables, stealing the wine in order to keep the party going. So. It was a weird time. But all right, guys. This is our EPL week twelve recap. It is brought to you by stadium. Seen dot TV the best place. Find the best parking, restaurants and bars, all your favorite sporting events. Mba's playoffs are here shutout to Atlanta United f c and our our friends on unrelated podcast because they're up to winning ways. And you read bulls or meeting them in the eastern final not the union. So there's a lot of things that go and see right now. So make sure to use stadium seen dot TV for all your sporting outing needs, and you know, have one for us. So let's kick this off Cardiff is not getting relegated. Martin Cardiff is beaten Briand and brightens on on a little cold little coach stretch right now. Oh, yeah. I realized if we did a prediction pod. And I bet on the games that I would've normally bet on I would have lost so much money including this game like going into this. I thought the gay seagulls we're going to we're going to remind Cardiff of who they are the proud gay Segel's and Cardiff flip the table real quick. And I was shocked did not see this coming in a million years. Brian is definitely in the cold cold days of November. Yeah. Unofficial gay capital. I mean, there's some teams that come up from the Premier League they do. Awesome. And we're like all right. And they kind of full us. You know what? I mean, they come up like, oh, yeah. They're going to be a staple in the Premier League for the next like for the next decade. And then they're going like in like like that the greatest trick the devil over pooled was convincing the world that he ever existed. So there we go that's a little usual suspects for you moving on to south have Southampton. Fuck I can't talk. Southampton versus Waterford. I didn't actually see this game. Only read up and watch the highlights. What is it with the whole what's his name freaking out about like the penalty? And there should be VR. Have you heard anything about this? Yeah. I mean, I I saw that that there was a huge shout because this ref was apparently of rookie and he had a shitload of bad calls in this game. And apparently Mark us just went off on him for Southampton and on a penalty that was not given to the Southampton team. And definitely looked like it was a penalty. It was a bad tackle. It was Charlie Austin. Yeah. I remember watching the videos over social media him pop it off this funny accent. They just say puck the bus. It was like some weird Meam or whatever going around about Charlie Austin. You know, just seeing him in the headlines. You know, you gotta put them in the headlines for something. So this is cool. I like, you know, I know we're we're split on VAR. But I mean players are asking for it. I mean coach manager ask for, but always seems when it goes against them, right? Oh, yeah. That's always how it's going to be an I just love to see Charlie Austin's face in the news. He's my second favorite striker in the Premier League behind Shane long and seen Charlie Austin do. Well, that's always great end to see him angry or in trouble at even better. So good on him from ranting his ass. All yelling at the referees. Amiss that old fiery? Hatred of the reveries and football. Roy teen. Did he would just it would start almost fighting referees on the pitch, and I wanna I wanna bring that bag fight the referees. Yeah, he just want to eat them. I mean, I'm pretty sure he eats people are can we can we say that? With a decent amount of certainty. Hell, yeah. We could definitely like Hannibal Lecter, not unlike a vicious Campbell way, but like in a fancy, I mean, I guess it's so Campbell ask. But like in, you know, in a civilized way, you need people write a dignified people eating. Yeah. We don't carnivorous which isn't a fide not. I'm not condoning. But I'm just saying it's a little it's a step up. Right. It is it's better than you know, preparing human flesh like Hannibal compared to like pirates eating it right off the bone. We're all respect Hannibal a little bit more than pirates. Also don't know pirates cannibals. Cannibals things if someone semi I'd just be like, yes, sure. Like. Of course, pirates said that sounds right. Make sense. All right. Let's move on to a less versus Burnley. I actually took Burnley in this match because they were at plus six thirty eight which is kind of like ridiculous odds because I was thinking like lesser was going to be kind of like, you know. They just came off a big motion win owner passing away. I thought they were all going to be exhausted just turned out to be kind of bore fast. Lesser got a little lucky here being the more attacking side. You know, it's always sad. You know? It's always sad. When the more like, you know, dob ball dominant attacking side doesn't come out the result. But I mean, this is a good result for Burnley. I'm just sad because you know, I put five bucks on this. And I have one like forty and Burnley what the fuck. I still think every game we are way overestimating Burnley for whatever reason it hasn't trickled into our thick skull. That Burley is definitely not as good as we thought. They are. But yeah, I wanted to win this. This was their first home match back in king power since the died. And like the the moment of silence than those held before the games fantastic. You can see all the supporters are still, you know, bring in banners bring in shit to the game with them to commemorate him. So I wanted less to win this bed. But Burnley did what they did best than just sat back and absorbed all the pressure, and I mean shit good on them for not letting in for five goals like have been in the past couple of weeks. So I mean good on Burnley for doing what they had to do. But I'm sad from us wanted Lester the windows. Yeah. I think we're so just fooled by Burnley of last. Year. Like, I'm still thinking of teams how they were last year or so going to perform this year like not that like players move other teams get better like I don't think like that. Like, I just think like, oh you did that will last year. Of course, you're just going to be exactly exactly the same. But yeah, I mean, they did the Burnley tactic got a gritty result. They got points out of it. You know, I mean less there is not a side to, you know, drop your guard against and you know. You know, I just miss Sean Dyche getting all hype on that fucking ginger. You know, there's no one in the Premier League because ginger cabinet broin this out there's new gingers in the Premier League. I can get excited about right now. So can you think of one I there's like good gingers in the Premier League right now. I mean without Katie b wherever the fuck he may be. I know he's on injury. But that just run to them like rhyming. But without Katy b and I don't think there's a single other ginger contender in the Prum unless you count chanko. Men city might have placed him on loan. I can't even remember Pickford. I mean, he had a hell of a mass against Chelsea. I mean, he singlehandedly got points for Everton in that which will get to is ginger. Right. Can we very red in the face? I don't I think he can be like a honorary ginger like first. Cousin? Okay singers. All right. Well, we'll have to take it moving on to the terriers versus West Ham. I actually bet against you know, the terriers against my good judgment in this game. I bet on West Ham because I figured Huddersfield blue their low too early for no nut November, and they were just like whatever West Ham's probably going to dominate us. But of course, I look I look at my fucking Twitter. And I go hundred seals up six minutes in God. Of course. Flank, thankfully, thankfully, Philippi. Anderson in the seventy four th minute came out, and you know, I didn't make money, but I leased it like lose sprite, right? Is that is that how that works? Yeah. You didn't lose your pride. And that's that's what counts when it comes to bedding. But dude, I'm so happy for the terriers. This is the start there just complete dominance. Look they made it happen gins West Ham, somehow some way, but they got it in and got the point that they needed. So they're not dead last their second to last which isn't, you know, saying, but hell they're not in the last place position anymore. This is the start of something beautiful and West Ham. I expected a shitload more. Coming into this game. I thought West Ham. We're going to be able to beat the future champions, but Huddersfield with that early goal and did enough to hang on for point. Yeah. You know, my money said that West Ham was going to do a lot more. I don't know what the fuck all these London teams got Jim it. All right moving on to Newcastle versus bore myth. I know we're just hitting. I feel bad for our listeners. We're like all the good games came on Sunday. So I feel so bad that like sorry Tottenham fans. But really all the good games came on Sunday. So I feel like I'm just hitting this log of just like okay mediocre team. So all right Newcastle. Good can question, Mark. Are they good now? We were saying we're pretty much saying they were done for a while. Martin. Are we raffled Benitez making us? Eat our words well, dude in in the past two games. They've won both games against quality decent decent teams with watt. Am born with. And I think he is. I think we're off a hurt. His and is using that hate to drive this team. And Solomon Ron Don is getting goals which has been completely lacking. And they finally have an often to presence. And so do I think we were wrong. I think we're off as on hold of this team and shit. They play Burnley next granite that's in two weeks from now. But if they win that game. Yeah. Rafa definitely hurt. His making eat our words deliberately God dental Rafa if you wanna come on the podcast respond. I totally understand. I really, you know, I I know you've been listening. So as as a avid lesser fellow latte. It only it only makes sense. Oh, also real quick Martin. I just retweeted this, but a Christian politics that has a podcast. He just started it. But yes, yes. And he's responding to everyone about say like you, dude. Trying to trying to come on the podcast you'd when. Going to just not talk about yours and just tell me about your son. And how you raise the golden Hershey, Pennsylvania. God, let's not talk about anything except Christian and everything about Christian. I don't care about you, dad. Yeah. I all Christian all the time. It's the sucker unplugged with Mark postage. So that's a free plug for you, Mark. So if you wanna come on as well, I just, you know, we're that's free promotion right there. We have at least two listeners my. My mom for sure. So all right moving on to. Okay. Yes. Castles good, maybe moving on to Tottenham versus Chris palace. Again. Another result were Tottenham had to like literally grind out a result. And in the past, you know, Todd doesn't do this. They don't grind out results. Either win like beautifully or they just get a draw or lose. There's never like them winning these one nil gritty matches, and is this are we sing new Todd them because they're sneaky in fourth place right now. Martin sneakily. No one's talking about them right now. And I saw someone give a what's Bleacher report gave manager ratings and the only gave podge a C. Plus, but he's only like I don't have the table right front of me. But I think he's only like two or three points off of like Chelsea and Liverpool. He he's one point off Chelsea and three points off Liverpool. So I I what do you make this? I think it's exactly what you said. They're sneaky good. They're not playing that. You know, superstar lich? Way of football that pep and sorry and Klopp or playing and they're not getting those crazy results like those three players are doing and and do their real fucking contender. Yeah. They're stumbling all over the place in the Champions League. But this entire Premier League season. They've been under the radar. They're keeping up with the big boys and they're not on anybody's name anybody's mouth. Nobody wants to talk about. And I think that's working for on them and letting them grind out these games getting the points that they need and claim that old school Marino ball, where points are the only thing that matter at the end of the day. We don't have to play flashy, but we're going to get our points. We're going to stay right in the mix and. I felt like Tottenham was kind of having an offseason this entire premiere the metoo fifth there in fifth five points behind city one point behind Chelsea like sneaky, good sneaky fit. Yeah. It's kind of like when you go like kind of like when we went to via my go to a new setting you just want to be a ghost, man. You don't want to be like a loud mouth don't want like gear attention, you know, use wanna ghost in and then just hopefully things work out. And you just go under the radar and Tottenham has been under the radar. But now, you know, I'm putting their got my, you know, sights set on right now, I, you know, I think people need to start taking more seriously by Harry Kane score more goals is that fair. I would like to see him on the scoresheet more. Yeah. But at the same time like good on Tottenham for not being over hurricane reliant. I mean, the dude still is probably gonna score like ninety percent of the most. I clutch goals that the team needs. But for them to space out the work load with a son Lamella Eriksson Dyer at times deadly alley and for them all to be getting goals and couple of them just getting back from injury. This top team could get more and more dangerous, especially if Harry canes rate of goals increases when their fire firing on all cylinders. This team is not to be considered lightly. At all dude on them. Scary sneaky, scary good. God damn and I just saw soccer dot com. Released most of their jersey sales Tottenham had so many more big states and other states, you know, midterm election bullshit, they had more states than arsenal. And I was like God damn it. So did so did Chelsea. And then obviously the rest of the map was like Liverpool. Manchester United arsenal had like fucking like Wyoming and some other weird state. I was so pissed off. And of course, New Jersey Hadman city, of course, New Jersey would have man city that would only fucking make sense. I don't know what Florida has. We'll just assume like I don't know like QBR Newcastle. I don't know some some shitty team. I don't like some crazy shitty team fucking wacko team. Moving onto the Sunday matches another day at the office for Liverpool. Martin to nil Fulham. Maybe last year Liverpool would've put six goals against the side. But you know. Three points three points a lot. I like to see so law on the scoreboard. You know, it definitely seems like he's taken a setback. But not as great as some people were saying it also should carry a can we say signing of the fucking summer so far like he's been the best signing so far in the past. I twelve games, including I guess you count European as I think security has been a fucking steel in Fulham, you know, they kinda fool me in the beginning of the season. They suck they stink. They are not good. Yeah. Yeah. And this game is that type of game where it's going to expose everything that's wrong with form, and I feel bad for their goalkeeper. I mean, Sergio Rico came from Spain. And he tried his goddamn hardest. But when you have twenty one shots against you. You're going to let in a goal or two. And that's I mean, that's just the name of Liverpool's old old style game put as much pressure on them until a couple of go in and Salal kind of bounce back from the not great performances that he had in the early season. So it's good to see that. And I got a completely agree with you getting jurden Chiquita, aka mini tank for fifteen million this summer and having him perform like he does for this already offensively talented team. That is Liverpool. Like God, damn it. That's a steal and a half. I am jealous as shit like Shaquille his dope. The only other player that I'd put up with him as. One of the best transfers of the summer as toward at a on arsenal. Security. Bring so much to Liverpool team. Yeah. I got damn like in terms of death. He is like like the the he could maybe even start for some of these Premier League teams like maybe city, maybe even Chelsea deaf. I don't know some of these teams I think carry star for you know, what I mean. I player off the bench than got damn. That's an awesome. I player off the bench. I that's like so much death. Like why why do you need that much death? They're so good Liverpool. Still undefeated second the table. Just two points of man city sitting at a comfortable thirty points. Still just remind everyone we still have three undefeated teams at the top. That's fucking awesome. All right moving on to Chelsea versus Everton, which was to Jordan Pickford fucking show where he single handedly prevented Chelsea from getting points in this. Are we seeing again another draw from Chelsea that the sorry balls being exposed and there needs to be more attack? Just be like a billion passes, or what are your what are your thoughts about this Martin? I I want to say that black and white I think Pickford headed day and a half against Chelsea this past weekend. But there are there are games this year. There have been instances this year where that sorry bowl is is being exposed them being defended with with pretty damn. Easy capabilities from the defense. And this was just another one of these games where it got exposed. And I think it comes down to the forwards Murata's and not performing at that high rate that he had been in the past four four games that takes a huge wedge out of the spear of their attack. So when we're auto or jerus- or whoever's playing that center four does not play up to par like up to eat and hazard par at takes out a huge aspect of their attack. And it doesn't allow. Balls to be held at the top of the eighteen and that's exactly what Everton did. And thanks to that. And a brilliant performance by mock ginger, okay, honorary ginger. I I could see this being a trouble for Chelsea into games to come. If teams are able to figure it out pinpoint out how to take out the center Ford of that Chelsea top three then. Sorry bowl is going to have a lot of difficulties. Yeah. I don't know. I feel like when they're on it. It's like Golden State. And you're just like fuck there's unstoppable. But when like the threes argh going in having an off night. It's kind of like, you know, sometimes you can't just rely on one method. You gotta go back and get greedy getting the pain. You know, drive the ball. Wait. This isn't a basketball podcasts. Okay. All right. Joe sees like, they're definitely have the talent. And not to say like Everton has players like this isn't like Fulham or Huddersfield or any of the other lesser size. Are Cardiff Everton is pretty damn good. Like, they're not bad. They're sitting at ninth table nineteen. Points just one point behind United Waterford inborn myth. So it seem Coleman has actually been kind of nominal as well. I'll have to say I've really liked his progression. As a player defensively they've just been sound, especially with Jordan Pickford with the gloves. So yeah, I mean still undefeated and is the best start for a new manager the broke that record for best are as a new manager in the Premier League undefeated. So sorry, I'm sure he smoked like ten packs even as though he was like blackout drug after this game. But that's fine. That's fine. We've all been there. I I haven't wake haven't. But all right, guys. This is the fucking match. We wanted to talk about this is more ins bane of his existence the Manchester, diving, I know, I know Martin I'm sorry. We have to talk about it. This is what all the fucking people at home want to hear about mid city versa. Mandy, knighted three one. And this scoreline says three one. But if feels as though. You know, if a lot closer for a lot of the game, right? I think at times. Yeah. It did. But. Manchester. United was not able to hold any type of position in the first fifteen minutes of the game city held eight percent of the possession. They were able to keep the bowl in attacking areas. Manchester United was only able to sting like a bee only sting once and then you lose possession and city are right back at Manchester United's defense. And so I think that there were an equal amount of opportunities. So to speak. Like in terms of like true ocean? This could be a goal factor. But over the course of entire game. And God damn this pains me to admit, but city, this was just a masterclass by them. They their final goal was forty four passes led up to that goon again goal. They were constantly barrage. Barraged United's left and right flanks to put balls into the middle Silva's just a fucking God, send in the midfield trading almost every attacking move just so simply inelegantly where Hemas dangerous piss Aguire was great and manages nut. It has a defense problem, and they seem to be playing better when they do not follow Marino's philosophy. You know there are flashes in that game. Where United looked like a fantastic one touch fast paced attacking team? And that's just not the mentality that Marino preaches. So I think and I've said this before the time has come stop this madness. Stop this experiment. Stop this. Jose Marino bus. It's time to get off. And ain't working. And this showed it marinas out is he is that is that what you want. Mine is that is that what you wanted gone. Oh, yeah. It's been wanted. And now it's come to fruition. And it's just I'm just done. I'm just done do kids. Gators progress. Okay. Sorry, the world's bleak. Yeah. It's it's it's dark. It is very fucking dog is David fincher film. Fucking dark. Davits Silva the way he score that first goal. It's like how they've been doing it all season the way they undress and dismantle by these crisp perfectly weighted passes. It's it's something to marvel at and then the penalty, Anthony Marshall Edison was Edison, son. This a lot this season where he just thinks he's like big man on campus and come out when the ball and be brash and just kind of just, you know, I think that might be a problem for sitting in the future editor said some of the passing he was doing out the back, and how confident Kami was was really pretty to watch where you're like. Oh shit. Like, he's a goalkeeper. Like, you know, like I could see that guy the midfield the way he's just like perfectly doing these lofted passes to there to his wingbacks for that penalty was so dumb and Anthea Marcial just clearly just put that right away sent sent Edison the other way again Sergio guero in the Anderson Cooper, look alike. Just. You Sergio guero has not miss a beat. I think he's been probably the most consistent international player in the past couple years. If I'm talking like just like a player who's just been since twenty twelve till now just the guys and nothing but the pit ame- of consistency. And again like you're saying with that last goal forty was it would you say forty something passes forty four. Yeah. God damnit Barscelona shit. Where's just perfectly like it's like you're playing the computer and fica like that's not fair that is not fair at all. And are there serious questions coming from this? I saw mixed reviews. I saw some many fans on Twitter being like, you know, well it city, but that's not like the Manchester United fans. I know I like you Martin demand United fan. I know you is like fuck this bullshit. We need another manager right now. It is. I mean, we're not seeing any type of consistent growth or really. Any growth. I don't think Mench is not it is a much better team than it is than it was three years ago. Look what pep is done to Manchester City compared to what Marino has done at Manchester United into night and day difference. And if United as a team wants to be taken seriously and wants to see real fuck in progress. Stop beating around the Bush like y'all seen this for the past two years. There hasn't been any consistent growth. There has never been a point in the past two years that Mench has not it was able to steadily challenge for the title. And it doesn't appear to be any closer for God's sakes. They're sitting pretty in seven the place like calm the fuck on. That is not that is not why marina was brought to mention in and pet Gordy Ola has made incredible players. He's turned sterling into a gr-. Great forward Aguayo after being threatened with benching has just become the model of consistency. Goon again is on another level for for non Dino's on another level Johnstone's is on another level. Like you look at the two. And there comes a time to fuck him pull the pin out dude ended all and this is it stop stop treating him. Nice for whatever reason he's three years deep, and there's almost a player revolution in the locker room and done throw the towel and be done with it. All right. Well that was. Depressing. Do you wanna move onto the last match weekend? Martin. Yeah. Okay. If you wanna get me off a tangent. Absolutely, please. Okay. I just feel bad for Deva. Hey, that's my biggest takeaway because the guy like everyone's freaking out because you guys are. I think minus one goal difference right now, which is like insanity that you guys have twenty points on might his goal different differential, which is kind of a fee. I think we said that before that's kind of a fee in itself. But Deva, hey is just getting like shit rocks because his defense is so bad, which I think we have a question from our followers about that which will get more into. But all right last game of the weekend arsenal versus wolves arsenal. Squeaking by with an e six minute goal by Henrik Mickey Tarin cyst by Aren Ramsey Martin. Segue about this matches is one why the fuck was being played at the same time as the Manchester Darby that's bullshit. So I had to watch it on my phone while I was trying to look at both screens. And I kinda stuck watching the Manchester Darby because I was like what my team is down in the thirteenth minute. Because Cavero so fuck me. So my basic way is good. Resolve by arsenal to come back and get into this granted jock being fucking exposed again. And again, and again like, I honestly like I get excited with him in Torrero in the midfield. Sometimes. But after this game, I was not impressed at all. But again, I think a big takeaway is the wolves are good. I, you know, I'm not trying to say like arsenal like squeaks by till like, you know, bad team. We squeaked by two pretty like decent mid-table. I would say at least like in the top ten teen. Yeah. Oh, yeah. I mean, I think that the wolves are true threat to anybody that comes up against them with the exception of Manchester City. I think the wolves have definitely proved that right now right here in twenty eighteen the wolves are strong, solid consistent midfield team. And they take it to the top six position against mentioned tonight'd against arsenal. This this past weekend. And. I would still be proud as a gunner fan. If you got this point, you got this point, you probably would not have gotten this point last year. So what have been one of those games where you sacrifice three points one point and just get zero points and for that or snow team to fight back. Good on them and shows that they're still believing in their manager. The only problem I have is your undefeated in the past twelve matches. But in the past five matches four of them have been draws. So is there any concern? No. God damn it's November Martin what are you going to do? It's arsenal November. If you don't know arsenal sucks during this month. And you know, I think it's because we are suppose been no nut November for so long. And people are now talking about it like we've been the beginning of this. And that's why we're no good because we just have way too much to Strom just built up inside of sort of this month. We we we're not relaxed. We get to stiff before matches. So I think that's the biggest reason why we're we always struggled or November by other teams are catching on to this new trends, so they're also Steph during this, you know, month. So is it hard to come on the pitch. You fuck you. That's that's good. All right. You know? That's good shit. All right. All right. I, you know, I it's the first year we're not back. You know? I take it back take it back that we're back. We're just, you know, it's I I'm at the re retrace myself so little bag and just realize, you know, it's a it's a new coach new manager new players. So we're still figuring it out. I I re- tracked my statements from before. All right Martin. Let's open this shit up for fan questions. So thanks every everyone for chicken out our social media. We usually put out a for every episode. You can ask us questions, and we'll mention you on the show. So first question comes from our Facebook online American Cussing soccer is from Mark Waugh rack who has been a guest on the show shout. The Mark graduated from VMI with us. He says why does Manny nights defense suck? Well, well, you have thirty minutes. How much whiskey do you have? Yeah. Seriously. Well, I think it's because Manchester United has held onto bang average defenders for years. Chris mauling has been in the squad since two thousand twelve Phil Jones, Marcus Rojo, Eric bye to some extent Matteo Damian. I mean, I love Valencian young to death. But they're aging thirty three thirty four. And we've mentioned that has allowed them to stick around and allow them to be playing and be content with that defense, and whether that's a issue with Reno's tactics itself, which I don't believe it is because he's requested money time and time again from the Manchester knotted board, but. It's just not there for United to actually use to buy defender for God knows why internal power struggle conspiracy theory ISIS who knows, but because United has had bang average defenders who have not gotten much better in the way too many years that they've been around this club. So it's as it is with everything it's that lack of vision and lack of attitude around this club to make it better force it to get better. Yeah. The one thing I will never understand in. I would never say ill word about, sir. Alex, especially with you on the phone Marin. But I honestly I don't know why he loved Phil Jones so much that is like if there is even like a one eighth of demerits you could ever put on his resume is like his love for Phil Jones wanting him the Santa club. Like, I I don't get it. It's just one of the things I will just not get. I I won't get that. I will. Get same side couples at restaurants. There's just things I'll just never understand. All right moving on to Mike marvel sh. Recipe. Stan Lee man, let me fucking sad. All right is marina to be fired before the season. I say no, he's not say he as the whole season. My heart toes me. No. But I know that once things get real bad. It's a while before they start to get better. And I feel like they are going to stick with him throughout the end of the season and just drag this through the mud and just make it just horrible. But oh, yeah. Baby. I love it is going to be a real like a snuff film by the end of this season. It's going to get gross. All right moving onto Twitter. It is from our boy colts. He cole. I don't want to is this your social security number nine. Oh, I'm not going to say, all right echo. This is from our Twitter lads underscore podcasts. He said at last podcast who's going down. Personally, he thinks full moon. Get out this inclined the table. He's got a Southampton Cardiff and Huddersfield. Why would love for Southhampton to go down coal? Thank you for you know, putting them in your top three. I think Fulham I don't think they got it. Honestly, I don't think Fulham's got it in them. Honestly, if I'm gonna do my top three I'll probably do Fulham Cardiff, and I'll say Southampton to be an asshole. But hunter show, it's gotta do fucking something. A hundred fields definitely not going down. I mean, no expert would ever predict I've got Newcastle Carter Fulham Newcastle because their time has come Fulham because Carter because I like it there is some there is some sound logic. I liked it. All right moving onto Matt will or at MJ will six from Twitter. He says with the top of the field beginning to separate itself. And sorry Kevin in parentheses Tottenham having three points on arsenal. Do you see the top four as being set? Ooh. That is a good question. I think it's too early. Even though usually like the top four at this time of year, usually say's that is, but it's been so competitive, honestly, I could see the only change up. I could see is probably between Tottenham arsenal. And Chelsea because I think we've talked about before Chelsea has been exposed because of that. Sorry Abol unless he gets that sorted. I think main sitting in Liverpool. We're going to be trying to kill each other at one and two. So I think it's going to come down to three four and five and even made United as much as we like poo poo, especially Martin this shit on many United. I think they could you know, these still have plenty of tally could make shout for. Maybe the four spot other points off fourth. But I mean, you never know. There's also Tottenham and arsenal we shit the pets. You know, all the time. So if I was going to say there was going to be a switch up out probably say either with arsenal and tied him for fourth and fifth. Just interchangeable. Yeah. I gotta agree with you there. I think there's I don't know at this point in time like. Sixty percent chance that that top four is going to be detained for Chelsea Tottenham. Switch it up. But I mean, there's still like a forty percent chance that Taunton is going to switch off take the shitter bottle it and arsenal is gonna fly ahead of them and coming that fourth place. So I think it's think it's too early to tell but I'm like sixty percents. Sure. It's going to end city Liverpool. Chelsea tottenham. All right. Yeah. I I'm kind of in agreement with you. I think maybe have some I think the gets more of the top six before I can make a definite answer. And plus it's still really early. And it's so close it. Let's not you know, what don't be such a Debbie Downer, man. I just want. I want to be interesting. I want some fucking like fireworks. Listen like mix ups in here. So last question of the podcast, the cunning stunts love him. He says bigger disappointments Man United season or Martin's love life. Neck and neck, buddy? Hey, listen here, bud. Hey, don't you. Ask me those real questions. I wasn't ready. Well, welcome to our entertainment soap-opera podcast where we divulge everything about our sex and love life. All right, man. Are you gonna put many United season higher or lower than your love life? Martin. I think I got to put the United season higher because this is my third year of just shit. So it's getting real bad. I'm not I'm not like desperate yet. I'm not wishing for a girl to switch out with another girl because I don't like her management or tactics. So I'm not there yet. With relationships like soccer, tactically tactics. Tactically, you know, the new man on you know, that's like. Yeah. I mean, I look at girls Instagram like, well, she got a new boyfriend that's a new summer signing, but it's not gonna last. There's really bad chemistry right there. Just a complete sociopathic way of looking at things. I gotta so I could get her off the off season. You know, if there's bad chemistry there that you'll be a good signing during the winter transfer market. It'd be cheaper in January. The chances are lower for her to find a suitable club and low ball a couple of times before making a decent offer. And then boom new Sonning? Injury prone. We always can't. Got it. But that perspective, you know, how fit is this, bud. All right, guys. Well, that's been our God damn podcast. We're about the hop on interview Bros. Talking soccer and make sure to check out our patriot page, all our social media, Twitter, Facebook and Instagram at lots podcasts on America's Cussing soccer. This has been fucking awesome.

FTP Ep. # 127: US Ryder Cup Woes and DFS Picks for EPL 9/29/18

"Welcome to the fantasy Throwdown podcast. Bringing you the latest sports news, fantasy analysis and opinions. Don't forget the hot takes and have a sports show without heartaches these days. What about hotcakes though? I want some odd case. Now here's your host, ready to jump into the thick of things. Dwayne calendar. Good early morning to you, throw down nation. I am up and is just Astor's quarter after six in the morning on a Saturday. Why am I this early? And why? I've been up for little over an hour because it is the Ryder Cup and currently team USA is getting their asses handed to them by team Europe. Not that I was surprised. I didn't get it to record a the an episode, ripe for Radico started, but I thought this was way too much hype coming in about this US team to begin with. I was a little bit surprised that you're wants an underdog here considering the hosts. I know team USA one, but I thought it was a little too much. I'm coming in for the Ryder Cup as a whole, because honestly, there were some holes in his team USA. And it goes beyond just Phil Mickelson. There were a couple of other guys that I had a lot of doubts about coming into this one being doesn't Johnson to being Ricky Fowler on the team just in terms of how their play was going. And so far Ricky is, you know. To say, he's been a bit of a basket case is the saintly sees missed a number of putz got hit into the hazard a few times. It's not good look pretty US right now, and they're playing the four ball so at. So there's one where it's a four, some action, of course, that sounds a lot worse than it does. That's six at work, but where you got the pairs playing off against each other and we're has the best overall score, their team wins the the whole, you know, based off of the parents that we've got going on. You know, again, not looking good because you've got a Tiger Woods. Patrick read having a rematch against for Jessica Molinari and Tommy Fleetwood, you know, again, this is a rematch Molnar and Fleetwood one yesterday on all expect that to change today. And so far it's going according to script Fleetwood Molnar air up to holes. And you know, I don't really see it from woods and read, and because a tiger, you know, I don't care what anyone says like it's a different mindset playing brighter Cup than individuals, ornaments to meet tire, just works better as a solo artist. He's not really that Ryan team guy, you know, even even with this whole nice guy, Tiger Woods phase a when he had that cool rocky lake moment at the PJ torch EMP chip last week and surrounded by the crowd. You know, it was a rockstar moment, but overall, and his mindset iced. Still look at tiger as that. So I just never found tech going to be great in pairs. And yet every time we do ran a Cup, the Owens put them in peers. You know, I get it. You had the planes the team, but it's just not as saying, you know, sometimes you got to understand like what you got in terms of players, but it's just not his thing. So of. So here are some of the other four-ball pairings that are going on today. Tony fee now and Brooks kept against Rory and Sergio Garcia. I, I mean. I'll be perfectly blunt. I mean, between Rory and Sergio they're putting is better than Brooks. I, you know, is Clinton famous wedding back the US Open's, but in terms of putting I still put worry answer Johann of him, that's the the deal that US pairing I would've paired Brooks up with. I probably would've just sacrifice it and just paired up Brooks with Rickie Fowler and just get it over with. It's like the US. Like in terms of strategy, Jim Feerick is trying to win every match because of how poorly things went yesterday with Phil Braxton imploding which I, I mean, most people could see coming a mile away, but you know, it is what it is, but. You know, in terms of that, you've got a situation where you know you've you're using fee now in a match where I think he would have been far better off paired off with doesn't Johnson, or you could appeared off female with read, like I would have tried switching up. Somebody's parents a bit. You know to me doesn't Johnson's best partner would have been. Pair pairing a pairing off with the either fee now or maybe just Thomas. But you know, I think the the overall sentiment of vats were that they wanted to see superstar parents. You got Justin Thomas and Jordan speeds together, which is great when you have your bud. But you know, when you're trying to win a competition, which the US is, you know, so that you can't be playing favorites and you know. So you got female kept yet DJ in Rickie. Fowler you gotta woods and Patrick read and you gotta just the time Jordan speak. So the female kept a matchup against MAC, orange Garcia, to me, that's an automatic l.. I mean, they're losing right now pretty good, and I can't see. I mean, may maybe they make a strong charge into back calf because worrying Sergio take up. I can't see this not ending poorly for Americans where they lose at least three three into so obviously being down three holes with two left to go that. That's what I'm talking about. So I mean, the US just got hammered and the afternoon pairs yesterday the getting swept capped off by a Phil and Bryson getting lapped. I think it was six and six and five just because of how bad they were like. That's like, that's like a little literally rules where you, you call the mercy rule. But anyway. So Johnson and Fowler going off against Casey and haton US has to have this matchup they have to have it. And you know, this is the pairing that was most vulnerable for the Europeans which is live. Ricky Fowler should be nowhere near this matchup I, you know, again, I don't trust Rickie. Fowler if my life depended on out of any professional golfer, he's probably one of the last guys I would ever pick for a dire situation. So why he's on a critical parent for the Ryder Cup is beyond me. And doesn't Johnson. He's got a lot going on personally what the whole Paulina Gretzky situation. It's not a good look. I, I would rather have a more steady level headed partner for DJ than Fowler. I, like I said, I wanna take him fee now or you can have move, moved it around where he had just in Thomas with doesn't Johnson, but not foul. We know just not doing it, but you know the US get ahead this matchup and they're losing right now. They're down three holes. I mean, this was the match if they had to have without question, and it's just not working out woods and read are trailing a Molinaro and Tommy Fleetwood, you know, again, molinar and Fleetwood are lethal pairing is is one of those where it's like the only way this could have gotten worse is if you paired impulse. Were Molinari or Fleetwood to make it that much lethal. But I, you know, the the Europeans are banking on Poulter being able to raise up John Robb's game to face off against Thomas and speed. I mean to be perfectly Frank, the most interesting matchup of the four-ball parents is that last one with just it's obvious and Jordan. It's me against ample, turned John ram, nailing spectacle that will be John ramps visual verbal takes versus beefs, like just bring it out with a Thomas that Choubey entertaining television to watch. I'm not sure how good the golfs going to be. Because right now they are trailing. But you know, it's still early in that one because that one teed off the latest. So we'll see. But right now, like the year, your team is cruising to a massive, massive victory in the Ryder Cup. It's not looking good for team USA to be perfectly blunt. Again. I thought there was a way too much over hype coming in about the actual US team that was going into this because again, you had guys on the squad like Bubba, Watson, and Phil who were not playing well at all, and Bryson's of really young player the Hughes tailing off towards the end of the year, and it showed in the FedEx Cup standings. So again, just a lot of mixed. Mixed up play. I mean on paper looks good, but if you had to dive into some of the numbers team, your was far more consistent and had more top players like kind of in a good groove heading into this on. So to me, like if I wasn't patriotic I would've just team, you're about outright with it when they were plus one sixty online coming into the Ryder Cup. But yeah, that didn't do that. But I wasn't wagering team USA either just gets for the reasons I outlined didn't really believe in them. So anyway, that I, I'm sure some of you have been bored to tears by me, talk about golf. This morning, but I will go ahead with the under part of the podcast today that I wanna get into was DFS for English Premier League just because I like some of the match ups today. So just kind of wanna give my thoughts on players to look out for on both draft kings and fan duel. So go ahead with my draft kinks lineup right now. Well, the early game today is Manchester United versus West Ham. So there at West Ham, and I mean, it is the London stadium. So I always say like. Like whoever no a home team is. But the problem is that we've had being a neutral stadium, Mike, the London stadium, there should be plenty of United fans stoop almost in a way drown out the West Ham, supporters of fortunately. But you know, this is a Man United team that's in free fall in my opinion because it's the third year under Marino Jose Marino because, well, Josie, Marino. Sorry, it's early morning folks, but the issue is that United just got bounce out of the League Cup, which is one of the Cup competitions that gets played throughout the Premier League season and the League Cup. You are going up against lesser competition. The early rounds. So United gets bounce the League Cup early to adobe county squad that to be perfectly honest, their entire. Budget makes up less than what Paul putt Bob makes with as United with his Manchester United contract. So again, this is David Goliath situation where you know United did not look good at all Paul pot, but you know, the story ready came out that he had requested the transferred to Barcelona which created the tiff with Marino and Marino was punishing pug bub with various measures and also stripped him of being the secondary captain on Manchester United. I mean, basically it's just a tit for tat situation. Neither side is really happy with the other, and I, it's just not gonna. Because it was all ready, bubbling on a surface before the World Cup it. It seems as snowball since the season started and there's no getting around it. You know, this is going to end badly for Jose Moreno at United because of the fact that. Man, what am I saying? Jose? I'm saying Joe's anyway. It's still early folks. Forgive me. It's it's a case where Marino. Because of the actual issues going on. I mean, first of all, the system doesn't really fit the personnel romola Lukaku has not looked sharp since the World Cup part of it is is fatigue, but I also part of it is also the fact that he is very inconsistent player on normal years. So given the fact that he had extended duties for Belgium and Belgium went deep in the World Cup this year. You know, I wasn't expecting a whole lot of Lukaku this year to be perfectly honest. So again, I think this is a match up that United should win. Will they win it though? Anyone's guess I would not be betting because I know folks are betting the money line on United or abetting United minus one, so expected them to win by two goals. I think that's a way to optimise tick as bad as West Ham has been this. Year United is not playing anywhere close to their potential, and you know the play below to competition, no matter how bad their competition this. Again, this is a team that got passed by Derby County. I'm not putting my money on them, so that's my take on the early game. But let's get into the rest of the games on the slate because we got a seven game slate here with of form hosting Everton, Brighton hosting Manchester City, Tottenham hosting huntersville, town watt, furred hosting Meyer arsenal yet Southampton hosting wolves, LeicesteR hosting Newcastle, and in the marquee match up today, it is Liverpool hosting Chelsea after Liverpool was bounced by Chelsea in the League Cup earlier this week, we're in a number of the principal parties played. So you got a second clash in less than five days between these. Two squads, they want nothing to do with each other at this point, but there 'cause they went hard at it in the League Cup, and they're going to go hard again today. You know, it's a lot of them line here for bragging rights so that is going to be Musi television. NBC should be coming online pretty soon today. 'cause they're broadcasting out of DC today as the fan fast because of the Liverpool. Chelsea matchup like they did last year in New York. So that should be interesting. But you know, going like looking at it from the perspective of, you know, you've got. That marquee match up late in the day. Gonna get some DFS lineups ready now and then trying to figure out what the ownership percentage is going to be for tournaments. But in terms of the budget, I'm looking at it from the perspective of one half. So my premier strikers like getting getting the attention air. So the way I have my lineup constructed as I'm looking at this and saying that this is the city day to me in terms of strike. So I'm playing Sergio guero up top of somebody Leeds striker you know, if if I get news about the strike situation, maybe, hey, Ussa playing today then obviously I'll switch it as well, but I'm go riding with a where who spin on a hot streak. As of late, we're going to run a ten, ten. Thousand three hundred on draftkings. The fan dole pricings going to be higher at twelve five. But honestly, brightens still missing Pasco gross. They're not going to be able to move the ball that much against city. So they're going to be trying to sit back and survive and that never strategy for success against city. You know, I could also see, you know, depending on the lineup where you know you mix in Gonzaga or mahras if he starts. But right now it's looking as though it's going to be a grow top with, hey, zoos, and sterling I rather take, but I, I know some folks would pivot Hayes use as well. But you know, again, it still depends on what it gets announcements with it being so early. It's still not going to be sentenced stone yet, but growth might pick. And I think you know city is going to put up three or four goals, easy on Brighton. Moving on to my alternative forward pick you got Mitchell rich in place for Fulham. He's going up against Everton evident gives up goals. I'm probably going to look at Mitchell vich more likely for vandal just from a pricing standpoint, he's only nine thousand there. So that gives me some value to play with draft king sees at sixty. Eight hundred again gives me some decent value as well. But I I like Mitchell rich more on fan dole because my other forward spot that I would use on Faneuil achy goes to Ryan sesame oil who qualifies as both afford and amid fielder on draftkings he's only midfielder on vandal. So Sisson y'all. He actually gets a nice match up in my opinion. As well against evidence just gets in the midfield. He's going to have the speed and pace. It actually do some damage against evidence. I like to get that secondary four, it's but he's only forty nine hundred on draft kinks sixty. Five hundred on phantom on playing them in both just because I think it's a nice pivot from most of the chalk deaf people are going to be looking towards as they just looked to pull players from both liver, Liverpool and Chelsea. I think you have to be smart about how you go about handling the lineups in terms of other place to look at. Christian Eriksen in midfield who's out this week for Tottenham. So for Spurs I'm looking at both Lucas more and Eric Lamella to be anchors in my lineups today. So depending on how the announced starting eleven goes. One of them's going to be in the in the pairing. I I'm sure of it. I'm just not your who which one's going to be. But I I like Lucas more at seventy three hundred on a draft kinks fan duel. He'll run you eight grand, but again, great value at that price range. So more would be a better place in lamilla lamelo raunchiest seventy five hundred on fan duel, and I believe he's coming in. Just just around sixty four hundred of draft kinks. So you know, I think more is a better play than lamelo, but I don't know what a putsch Tino is going to go with in terms of a starting eleven four Spurs today as they play hundreds fields. So again, Spurs player should have some freedom of range. My best play for Spurs because I know folks are just going to gravitate towards hair Kane, but Kane has not been producing. Lately at the same clip as he was doing the last two and a half years. So I'm not paying that sorta premium unless I know for sure, canes gonna be out there with no Erickson, no dilly alley. You know, I know the popular place going to be on, but he's just kinda getting back and form. Lucas more lamelo, but my number one Spurs play is actually cured trickier. The left the left back just guess he does set pieces and free kicks. He gets them going in terms of like when they're actually imposition. And I think one of the things that you're going to see a lot of from huntersville it's fouling to try to break up the pace of play. So I think trip is going to have his free range of getting enough cakes in the box and creating chances. So I really liked trippy or today, I think he's an outstanding play. Just because he he should be good for cash games and in terms of a GP plays. I love trickier today at sixty four hundred and draft kings and fan dole. He's only sixty five hundred. I fan though it's a no brainer. Taking trickier draftkings I still think sixty four hundred just fine for him to fan duel. Absolutely. I think fan duel, his ownerships gotta be high, but it's well worth it. So in terms of other plays in the midfield I liked that Fulham game, Fulham games are you know for those who have not been watching to Premier League. So far, foam games are very entertaining to watch their back and forth. They play very entertaining style football, not their infants of back line is in utter shambles. You know, even if they get healthy, I still have severe questions about how good their back Mike can actually be in the Premier League. But with that being said, there are very fun and watch everyone should have their chances. So I like guilty cigarettes and I also like we're Charlotte's and to be productive today for evidence. So in terms of price range cigarettes in will run you just about. I believe cigarettes in is seventy eight hundred on a draft kings and on fan dole. He'll run you. In the range of nine thousand Shirley. Listen is eighty one hundred. On draftkings on fan duel. He's actually cheaper, eight thousand. You know, again, I like Rochereau. Listen. I also like cigarettes in this well, so I think they're both excellent place for cash and tournament place just because I think that Fulham game is back and forth in terms of goalscoring opportunities and crosses. So I think there's a good way of racking up points. Another midfield option to consider what be James Madison for less city. He's going to be. He's going to be playing against the. He's going to be playing against Newcastle today in terms of the price range. Madison's at eight thousand on draftkings fan, duel eighty five hundred. But I, I like his opportunities. They're just big, big body guy. You know, Newcastle has struggled defensively so far this year. So I think he's going to have some opportunities to. At least at least get a couple of shots on target. So maybe puts one in back in the net and you definitely get your whole there in order to fit some of these players in, we do have to kind of think a little bit outside the box in terms of getting value in the defense and also goalkeeper range. So today that end, I mean since we already have trickier in place, a couple of options you can look at is Jose boss at Wofford. Basically, he'll run you about. Fifty, six hundred at actually. He might be slightly less on draft kings. Hold on. I think he's actually fifty three hundred on. Yeah, he's fifty three hundred on draftkings. He'll run you about six thousand on fan dole, but good option there. Another option that's going to be cut rate. Pricing is Chris Lowe of Huddersfield. Will only cost you about. Forty, five hundred on fan duel and thirty nine hundred on draftkings. But here's the thing I talked about the fact that I expect Huddersfield to give up goals against Spurs. But the one thing you have to bear mind is that for DFS when it comes to defenders. Yes, clean sheets are nice thing, but that's not the focus here. Your focus on defensive players is the folks who get crosses across the net and create channel. John Jason passes completed so they have to be active. So usually when a team is an active defensively and they're not actually having to contribute to the course of play and it's just having a quiet, they your in a crappy spot. So people get it makes up where, oh, I want a guy with a clean sheet. Yeah, a clean sheet is nice, but in that if they're not in the run-up play the not all that much good to you. So that's why sometimes take it again, a guy like Deva heya screws you because like, you know, yes. Yes. When he makes those brilliant saves, it helps you. But more often that like when United States we're playing well defensively, he doesn't really have all that much to do. It's actually when he has to do a budget saves. That's when you get value. So sometimes you have to look at it from perspective of when is my keep her actually going to be active. So the two keywords I'm looking at today are Alison for Liverpool and Ben foster for what I want for because I expect arsenal to put shots on net. Now I also expect to give up a bunch of goals, but that's just me being a gun is fan and knowing what to expect, but foster should be active today for what firt with the arsenal attack. So I'll keep him busy. Alison definitely is going to be busy as Alison plays from the back. He's gonna be making passes. Hopefully he doesn't screw up and causing no goal like he has in past weeks, but we'll see how it goes. But I definitely like Allison and foster today in the goalkeeper spots to keep things interesting now, because draftkings has the digital utility spot. You know, some other guys you can keep in mind of just wore this week would be. John Michael for Chelsea still. I. Sorry, Joe, Michael CERA for Fulham. Sorry. But in terms of chances created, he's up there in the Premier League ranks just because again, I talked about full just what their style of play being. Dynamic enough where he keeps things very much interesting as a whole. So I like Siri as utility play. I also like Latino for walls. I know I didn't talk about wolves against Southampton, but wolf Southampton, Shuki game. Wolves will be looking at take from. Southampton. So I actually like wolves in that matchup today. If if our doing outright bets, but wolves would be an interesting option. I know folks would be more likely to be on Nevis in a couple of other guys which should keep with Tinos ownership blown up and under the radar. Another guy you can keep in mind would be granted Jakov arsenal provided the idiot doesn't get himself. Red-carded jackass should provide some value just guess you know unanimity for reasons that no one understands likes playing Jukka up and enough NC position and silicon holding position. So he's an holding midfielder who plays very aggressively. So that gives the puts them in Iran a place. So he's going to be active throughout and Wofford has shown that they can give up goals on the counter-attack. So it definitely is. Interesting play if you're doing it for tornament, not if you're actually carrying about real life consequences. Like arsenal fans should be, but I will out jackets name in there as a punt for tournament play. So that's what I've got in terms of the fantasy rosters today for the EPA matchups my expectations for somebody's matchups again, I talked about Manchester United. People are pencilling this as a win for United and Marino bounceback. I'm not sold on that actually happening now. I know West Ham's not very good, but you don't want to be going into a match when you're playing that poorly and you're in an opposing stadium and yes, I know United fans are going to be there, but it's still not the same as being at Old Trafford. So I think that's dangerous game for United. I'm staying away from it. Fulham, I think can beat Everton. So I think that's, that's winnable Matra, Fulham city. Again, I think should role. They'll score a number of points today. Tottenham Spurs should be able to take care of business against Huddersfield. You know, I know they're banged up, but they gotta be able to take care of business against huntersville that they wanna be serious contenders in the tunnel race and getting its Champions League arsenal Wofford Wofford plays good matchups games are so offers not frayed of arsenal. Arshile gives up goals. So I would be looking to take the over two and a half goals on set for that one, Southampton wolves. I like wolves in that matchup. I think they definitely have the tools to be able to take care of business, get Southampton, LeicesteR, Newcastle, Newcastle has struggled out of the gate known. Really happy with. The situation at Newcastle just 'cause a lot of uncertainty as if frost Benitez will actually stay there. Just, you know, when you're dealing with one of the worst owners and professional sports across the globe and Mike Ashley, you know, it's never done deal and less there. I mean, and then Liverpool against Chelsea in the late afternoon game. I look at that one as a game where Chelsea needs to get some points in my opinion to bounce back and to legitimise themselves as a top contender, Liverpool needs to win to justify themselves as the true threat to Manchester City. So that's a very interesting contest. I think it ends up in the draw, but I would not be surprised to see a win happened either way. So that's what I've got four my pig. So without much further ado, I'm going to sign off here and take in some breakfasting a get ready for a nice late of games and see if the US can make it a little bit of rally in the Ryder Cup based on what what I'm watching. It doesn't look all that promising, but you never know in sports. So that's all for now have a great day. Everyone.

"This is Rebecca Lowe will Rebecca if you listen to sub optimal radio, and you on this thing to men in blazers on the NBC sports network. From the embassy row studios in the crap. Soho cement blazes podcast back back back back land from flighty little in the sunshine, those three days a year is no place finer, you're also. Yeah, that's birthday. Let's raise a glass that aging dads. How was Trevor you say old man, and like, this is an English expression. And you call someone your old, man. Even when you're old man's you still year old man mild man to ninety years old Raj home Wednesday of last week. What a life what an age in incredible shape had an amazing evening, and you wanna know, what is keep fit regime is. And by the way, David is dressed like a ninja gym clothes. And then he tells us to his dad Trevor ninety. Yeah, that's down. Jim. He was doing three days a week. He was doing a general worker he did on the leg day. But he's now moved in his arm and leg day, and he just does his general hit workout. And then he's now says he's exercising in the. Garden. I said, well, what are you doing is? He was growing flown. I thought maybe he was like mowing the lawn around. He definitely does a lot of yard work. But he he's actually climbing trees. Yeah. So he told me having to go climbing trees, that's when he was in Germany after the war. Didn't unfortunately, get to fire out the Hon which really would have loved? A few wasn't in there. Just in time to fire out the hun. But they used to work out in the forest by climbing trees, and so that's what he started doing at ninety climbing trees living, buddy. Wait. I mean, he's he's one hundred thirty pounds wet. I would say my father is he's a he's a he's a live tiny man may not actually be my real father. He says we do not physically resemble each other whatsoever. Rossi the ice cream man referred to earlier part more likely to be my actual real father. He's a. But it's a, but that's what he's always climbing trees. It's great. Tasted Rossi's ice cream will know the source of the dunno Rossi is out of business done. I haven't spent our search on the internet not searching for my father searching for the ice cream because I want to rebuild that brand in the old west failure VW van. Would I wish that business? The listening anyone in the way to go the way to get. That's how I'd like to climbing a tree years of age Shinhan up my favorite L, and then just misplacing old and just happily. No. I don't think you would go ninety if you full from the tree think about little moments about the Hon. She didn't think about the love that you you miss. You think about those that have been with you, you think about children and possibly on yours, but you kind of fun anyway. And then you tell you one more story about my dad because this is very entertaining. This will probably only be of interest to you to no one else because we both have fathers whose names end in VR. I've an a Trevor I don't think they're any other. Off. Trevor we talk about this a lot resonates because they're from a similar generation so similar from this day and age. On the on the planet on a different planet. So the London marathon which was this weekend. It starts in black heath, which is. Maybe quarter mile walk from my from my dad's house. And so I said to dad when I went down yesterday. Did you go down for the the star of the math? And he goes he goes, no because I went down about three hours later. Well, why would you go down three as later because I like to watch the cleanup operation is that a sport father is watching the efficient. He likes watching people do things officially and he'd likes to see how efficiently usually the cleanup of I clean if operating you Jimmy pretty much, and he's always love them. Say being my father wonderful man, slightly a Rafic. He has don't we all have his deeply deeply wonderfully? Erotic tell live out with your own kids watching. I said tell my kids when they recoil in those movements. The they will soon be talking about an acting around me as I am around my beautiful aging parents and so on wheels have been wheels as you call it that is the conveyor belt of light. It is a huge Bill convertible. And I wish on it. I'm on my son's on the and probably closer to the end publicly to the elementary, full and the light too. I had an amazing time that taking my daughter to her first Everton game at Goodison with my dad, three generations of blues was one of the motion marketable experience of my life. What them both for different reasons at like giddy kids for an entire ninety minutes and Everton even playing along by scoring four times against Tony that know, who has Manchester United really played into that. They would just bonded, absolutely and believably. And I did as I watched. It wasn't so much thinking about the Dinnie goal. I was more thinking about these. Memories. These minutes within the ninety minutes that my children will please God have my parents going forward. I did have a whole experience without you. But I wished you were there when I taught my cleanser, the church or war room, wonderful stuff. We're able to actually sit this time in Churchill's Chaz, which was just a remarkable experience called very neat. Little bum. Mold on his Chatto is behind would leave a bigger impression. My youngest son's first question when we got there to the guy when the format took us around was was Churchhill a good, man. Which about four days to crop Leon's up. It was a great, man. He's a great man, but not necessarily. Could say the same about Brendan. Rodgers was how a try cried law, by the way Churchill cried a lot do when you start drinking ten o'clock in walking with Desta the book I recommend on the part of you weeks ago. There is something like two hundred and fifty recorded incidences in recorded meetings burst into tears during the war, which is like it changes. Your view of exactly what he was a very emotional, man. Let's say that ten year whiskey for breakfast. Do that to just is Jim correlation between tears and scotches for breakfast. Another highlight we went to Tottenham Hotspur his new stadium as meant to be beautiful. That is the tip used tiff, but fitting it is stunning. I am blown away. If you've not heard it's the first ever NFL purpose built stadium in Europe, purpose built in the one side of the stadium is for soccer. The other to the specs of the NFL with different sized changing rooms, huge tunnel purposely for NFL players different one for the soccer players cavernous in a normal the NFL. That's you rolls in and switches, the places I will say book list, and I know a lot of American listeners have already started go because they send us their patches at the park, not just because of the sight lines and the food which is never seen food this English stadium. But just a brilliant touches of history and lost of the details of the architects of moving in a next level Premier League experience. We get to go together. I was out on Saturday night with a bunch of the West Ham team. And they were just like raving about how great the Tottenham Hotspur stadium wasn't Saturday afternoon. We just do really Achim ICES remark. Noble pretty much. They really celebrate removed. They were nothing more fun than crapping on someone else's. Stadium talking next level experiences. The sick sixth annual golden blades, it's going down. Wednesday twenty-six double center for the performing arts in New York City, lower level tickets nearly sold out, but there are some balcony tickets left at twenty five dollars. That's a bog and you can purchase them Amena blazes dot com. Proceeds in this year's show will again, go to hope for the warriors charity. Just finalized the guest lineup. We have a will say is is next level men in blazes show this improperly the some women's football and the future ginger who'll of fame. Okay, raj. We've got a packed show. We're going to talk a title bout between two teams so extrordinary that whichever finishes second should be awarded the league one title. We talk top four race. That's more like a beer mile in which all of the contestants of saved the happiest high. For the final lap. And we traveled to the relegation zone where the bums squeaky and the Warnock's are angry. Let's go to the football. I want to raise my third birth the date yet to surviving. The battle winter fell. The most scintillating night of television watching I can remember in my lifetime from the nerves have felt building up a full forty eight hours before which is amazing to feel these emotions nerves anticipation for somebody. I'm not directly involved in and is entirely fictional, the brilliance of last night's episode to me lay in the fact that the Reuters they used our bias the men characters have to be the heroes. Ultimately, we knew this day women. They're the true warriors. I will say this, no spoilers leanna movement is my life hair. Maybe I'm feeling this. I've been wrestling with why do I feel strongly is because I'm off again this week to spend more time filming with the US women's national team America, one of the great joys of my life. I'm going to be this week in Peachtree city. Georgia Rockville centre strong island. Mentally, California in the course of the next week of a case of World Cup two thousand nine hundred fever got a bad and is magnificent. But it does pay me how little tournament is penetrated the mainstream. It's so, you know in days out, it's barely making a dent. I can't tell if that to reflection a reality of where the women's game kind of is in our consciousness. It's just a circus that rolls into town once a World Cup kicks off or so product of the complex lawsuit. The women of thrown down against US soccer. But it does sadden me because he's elite athletes a poised to defend their title sacrifice so much in their lives. They've ground they've dreamed they've hoped they feared one turn and they deserve more. So our raises bird fan blood fan to our US women may their proof our raise may they experienced glory, but more than glory, the respective sports fans across this country and all the goodness that comes with it, courage. Dams -olutely Roach. I think now that if you check our podcast. Costs from about four years ago to the day before that woke up in Canada, which the ratings were through the roof through on FOX. We were saying exactly the same thing that it felt it wasn't on the radar that nobody was talking about it that nobody knew that it was going on. So let's hope that it's the same as we'll we won't progress. Let's start with the title race the title race for the ages city tingle into the weekend leading livable by a single point. We're going to do this chronologically and we're going to begin Friday afternoon when the reds battered already six under Huddersfield, poor Huddersfield, Raj. They beat him five nil. A Naby cater first minute goal and braces both money and most Mosala taking the chip shins goal tally to twenty one for the season completed the rump a move yoga and clubs mob. Back a head of city by two points before law school Friday in this one we got credit at this failed. They lasted longer than we never have imagined against ferocious Liverpool. Collective team press. Trying to play the ball out the back the coughed up ago after fifteen seconds, fastest go in Liverpool's primarily history. And the turn eighteen Shane long's is not be cater was a man who ruled the ball finally into the net even Liverpool's bursts, contributing down his heavenly stretch. And it made this game Pippa purse for rubberneckers be no pressure. They stress just instant belief. No suffering for you in corporate all for once. The only thing the made it squeaky boomtime was a Huddersfield a so crowded even kind just say before we talk about the game that this spread of Kremlin fixtures between Friday night, Monday towards the end of the season. I don't like it very much, and I'll tell you. It's easier to follow from America where the games are on the after new I don't know it somehow becomes much in England with these games on on Friday night and games on on some say Wednesday. Yeah, it's just been very tough to follow the people over there at the end of the season. A lot of people. I know missed this game on Friday. Night because Friday night is the big drinking night in England. It's not Saturday really Saturday is too much. Good stuff on television Friday night is the big night out. Those did Choon in. They would've seen the Gulf in class. Do believe even the US men's national team would have been this beleaguered Huddersfield town team of this point Liverpool. They kind kinda just they thrill their fence as they decided to say, let's let's just play. Our greatest hits. Let's have handy Robertson to SIS with his trademark killing wet cross eleven assists for the Scott tied for most in a Premier League season defenders all time more than sterling Sunday, which is on the Shing clearly use the grayish red magician since Melissa got a salad goal. You gotta Sally yoga pose Sally. Twenty first league goal for him. Put him one ahead of guero. Many in the hunt for the golden boot. And perhaps a most emotional moment of all Dave, Alex Oxley Chamberlain. Yes. Oh back on the unfilled pitch for the. First time in over a year. He's the original AO saying he is the original AFC and a universally popular football player. I football player that just not many people have a problem with for a player who move from one team actually two teams. Right. 'cause he started a Southampton. He went to arsenal ends up at livable sigma south to the north yet. He's gradually going further and further and further Lasco the Aberdeen. It's a or Iceland who knows but he's a universally popular player is played really. It's sort of somewhat sad because of injury his England career which could have been spectacular member. The goal. He scored in Brazil a year before the World Cup. He scored a goal at American which was unbelievable. You can stop me. Now a superb superb footballer player multiple positions. And I love is phenomenal to see him back as goal after goal floor the boon for the goal difference and Liverpool's hopes assault on cities gold. Difference, which is now just for five goals clean sheet. Demolition so complete liver poor even able to zoom. Sure chicanery and shook his corpse onto the failed clubs more head off to boscell owner for the champions. They've lost just once all season, which is magnified. Not you one point and to win the title most years, they could get nice seven this year. David still come second. It's a league in the point of a league is to be every other team in the league. It's not together point tally that might have won you the league in a different year. But points is taken very very more. Interesting news, Jeff O P. Tony monta leave. Oh, shares wizardry aim of an article which revealed this Dave you're can cops landlord. None of Brendan relgious serious. Tony tweeted, wait, the broaches clubs landlord. How was it entire been dedicated to this fact, it's true? It's true club lives in the house. The Brendan brew when he was Liverpool's. Manager report joked to club this week that he quote may want to withhold rent to inspire LeicesteR to hell live a pullout in the next game against Manchester City on may six bridge later said that the press conference papers have been saying, this is hilarious. But it's hilarious. Broad jetty said to be well documented cops landlord don't need to keep an eye on 'em. He always pays time. He's very good. Isn't that hilarious improved his mind? Here's one would you like drudge is your landlord, David? Can you not? I can't think of anyone worse to come round with a toilet plunger applaud the loop. Here's the thing. I've had landlords before my life on the whole when things go wrong. I have to ask myself the question do I want to fix this myself or do I want to adore Pellegrini? On the whole lot dealing with it myself. I can't you Pellegrini can round like a boiler. We've been well on Pellegrini children being stitching just be like, very Hamdi with plumber, the largest thing action to you too. I think the better question is would you want your plaza tenant? Interesting. Just imagine Brendan just being lure your if you keep ill painting of me of the fight of die to you. As my lung time. Yeah. Can fight that. Dietary. My word. Okay. Liverpool listening. Yeah. Just have to place debugged. I'm sure there's video cameras in most private places that she is very I could throw. Jeez. The Catalan load people shoot tonight, we want you urine clock video. Livable's victory meant Manchester City had to win at a pug nations Burma team. They beaten five nil twice this season to go back to the top of the table. And they did just that behind a sixty third minute strike strike from Sergio guero which goal line technology from Hawkeye always residency of embassy row in the crap. Fata SoHo confirmed cross the line by twenty nine point five one millimeters in centimeters, how many millimeters in a centimeter ten millimeters to the centimeter? So that's two point nine five centimeters that's just more than an inch Raj tobacco ballot. If you wanted something that's comparative is longest than Rogers humility the mill win where you're going is cities twelfth league victory in a row Schimmel videos after the anti-climax of the Manchester Darby which feel terrible now for pointing to that for weeks. That's the one Scott Carithers is going to save. Them all in the show comes the trip to turf moor. I love what pep said before the game there. No, people are going to talk about how beautiful how handsome we are. Now, we have to go to burn like, which was a man fully aware of the clash of styles awaited Emma, search for footballing perfection coming up against gravelly voice. Sean digest deliriously cell phone until football. It was brain versus marine knew. It was high muscle advantage against cerebral the athleticism. You can imagine a proudly old-fashioned man like, Sean, Dinesh, still since depend on what? This is the way I am. I would imagine I watched the Chelsea game. When Chelsea went to burn the very chewed. Chelsea Burnley had a very charged match in every single way ended ended in a draw. And I've looked at that. And I thought Bernie going to give city problems they really are gonna get sick because they delight in the role of the spoiler. They love this role fancy poised to our to love it. And they were they were so motivated from the office street and city by fighting valiantly nobly new seeking a catch him on the break with their big bash brothers, Chris would and Ashley burns banging around up for one wag one for the first hour. It was a growing war of attrition poor man's battle the bustards in which razz Bernardo and the restored. Leroy sunday. You may at surprisingly little influence city could have had a penalty they piled on the pressure Burnley through that bodies everything. I mean, everything until the sixty third minute, Dave, I mean city need to build a. Statue to that, man. Kuna guero. He's clutch. David. I mean look at him. I see a dunk sentiment in not dunk. Nest is staring back at me Brown eyes. Blue eyes green is ice sealed ship forever. He eats out. Stunning. When you've got a championship on the line who better than Sergio Guerra who has more experienced and curry ceiling a well in the Premier League ceiling he's but that kind of player ceiling championship than Sergio guero. And yes, it only crossed the line by just over an inch. But it was still a gold. It was undefended. Has you whiff with his first effort, but I'm four through stab the ball. Go Matthew, loosen on the line trying to desperately clear it Hampshire eventually chest it when you look at it again and the goal decision system weighed in with that fake photo thing that they convinces photo. It's the same bloody photo every time maverick more convinces just threw out there. You think? Say that about my tenants defend my tenants to the death. This is twenty of the season twenty nine point five one millimeters. I mean, no, it makes aesthetically pleasing go. But few the kindergarten will strike will be more critical outside the two thousand twelve fitting in to the ethos of this race for the ages to ethically. Squads a wonder the difference between the male to be twenty nine point five millimeters. If we said enough yet, and if you throw in the January third game Liverpool city when Johnstone's the ball off the line to deny Liverpool. Go let one same photo again Hawkeye, but they said that one was just eleven point two millimeters off the line. I mean this tile rates for the ages. Dave two teams are separated by well lesson inches. Yes. And also livable's a team. That's drawn seven times that had nothing to do with golden technology. Manatee lost homes to Crystal Palace. Had nothing to do with goal line technology at the end of the season thirty eight game league season one team of one the league nine thousand nine hundred won't have and the team that finishes second going to be that are going to be a really really good team. But they won the league. There is this is this is the beauty of a league the beauty of a league is that you could win it on goal difference at the end of the season. It is just one team wins. Nobody else does the point is winning Roach. Twelve Premier League wins in a row city, bloody good at the point of what you have just demonstrated pep celebrated in front of the city fans at the full time whistle as if this was say special he's got home to LeicesteR away to break into and the title is as British media narrative even before this game. So ready began to talk about the total as if it is over a fatal complete at city have to win out. Can you see city dropping another point David less than Brian? I mean, I think the last time we put it and we talked about their fixtures. And we talked about this the Tottenham game. We talked about. The United game. And by the way, this Burnley game was was was no easy task. And I think that Liverpool fans certainly livable fans friends of mine have weeks just been waiting for city slip up and they've been looking at these fixtures because they've sort of felt, hey, if we keep on doing agile, it's inevitable that city at some point will slip, and I think a lot of livable fans have felt that inevitably titles been there's because they thought the city muster point at some point. But they haven't been you. Look this less the game. Look this Dave, oh, who's beating city their season, Roy Hodgson? Yeah, I'm Rafeh Benitez. Yep. Could a third former Liverpool manager complete the set. Broach. We'll be looking himself. I much in his wife in the mirror Saint progess with me for challenges like this. We just I will die Liverpool. Wait, wait die for less wit die for teams begin with the letter unless they were very very good this weekend against also mobile. We'll get to that certainly that city game against LeicesteR. That's very very difficult game Liverpool got very tough games against Newcastle who capable of playing very good football and Wolverhampton wondrous the sort of sleeping giants of the Premier League at this point hope they don't begin with the letter right Livy life Fisher for my life for my life. So funny despite this incredible talk for Freeman set in Liverpool the number of column inches and TV minutes devoted talk about Manchester United. This is the thing that really crashed. No, but inning, just Manchester. United dominate the conversation to an extent that no other team ever dozen every time the English way makes his. Great Americans love one, and they love marveling success, nothing English people love more than plumbing through the wreckage of a disaster. It just by definition it just makes you feel better about yourself. It's why American super are most often aspirational when we were growing up dynasty, Dallas knots. Landing preview for people living in believable lives and the English ones. Eastenders miserable working class life in London. Coronation Street, miserable working class life in Manchester. Emmerdale farm miserable rural life Brookside measures life in liveable because what ching them makes you feel better about your own crap. And that's what those are the two approaches to life can either spice more and look at greatness. So you can look at failure and just revel in other. I like your argument, but I see it from a different end is I think Manchester United have always been the show biz of always been the Hollywood team of English football. I think Manchester United I've ever heard Tony woodcock, the former great arsenal nothing. Forest striker who in the puz with us. Well, yeah, he did he came for drink with many with my mates. But I overheard him talking to my mate Brucie. He was over there for half of that let you believe Tony woodcock age sixty two is came over retirement plea for Hartford Wednesday half athletic. I think do a good job. We should say the half. Let Bruce would be unhappy. If say undefeated at home, I'm not sure that there are many teams in the history of football, eight games into their inaugural season are not only undefeated at home. They haven't dropped two point home. No one school against them home yet. And they haven't played at home but other than that. I haven't been home Munich. They've not lost to anybody in the molest any major league in the world. So the home record is still amazing. The the off that's league the yourself USO, the arsenal of the US L pope in the plane. At home. Who knows they may go undefeated? They make undefeated at home this season. Does your but I overheard. Tony woodcock Johnson. If you did it when he was playing on that nauseam forest team, which is hard for people. There is a team in not called Nottingham Forest. Also counts injuries team, if you watch the men blazes television, but nothing in forest when they had all of that Europeans excess when they were so dominant, and Tony would we're saying, but still all the anybody ever wanted to talk to him about what like playing against Manchester. United Old Trafford Manchester United always they suck up so much of the attention in English football. And this is the top four race. No one seems to win it though road Sunday morning fourth-place Chelsea traveled to six place. Manchester United in a game gun assaults guys meant desperately needed to win to keep top-four hopes alive. And it started well for them with king Kwan Mata capping off a piece of five stuff football. In the eleventh minutes, put the home side ahead. But in the forty third minute have it the head his pants again. Roach, United's Castilian, keep spilled along rage Ruediger effort. He'll be in trouble for shooting. Not passing it sideways allowing Marcus Alonzo to not home the equalizer ended one one Chelsea remain in fourth place, somehow United States six place. Three points off the top four two woeful powerhouses in decline. Colliding, so many psychological supports a remake Girl Interrupted yet. Big names yet crap football United wobble. Then after the Manchester Dhabi humiliation and a bare bottom spanking handed out by and this is no typo efforts football club, amazing one the seven losses in the last non gangs, which is just humiliation punishing to witness Chelsea she's launches in the crowd formed department. Oh, I've been taking just eleven points of the last twenty four the billing for this one should have been the euro police death, Matt Joff or poker versus hazard half. Assery fatal of what we your emotions before. Kick-off? David. Was it excitement? Was it? Fear. Could you give no craps? What was? Dave mood. I'm in no crafts, just doesn't matter. Chelsea I'm gonna win the league this year. We've already won the euro per league don't really care about winning. That's again, I don't even think it matters. Whether or not we make the Champions League next season. I think it matters that we finally it's your salary. I would rather get rid of him then go and do it. I'm always up for a Ruben leftist cheek appearance. And he he got a few minutes in this didn't play particularly. Well, but he got a few minutes. You know Hudson DOI he's injured his season is done. So there's not a lot for me to get interested say, but Chelsea one thing I am fascinated by there are no team. I can think of in sport where winning is just everything you're the win or a disaster. They say mentality pursue Chelsea. In the pro of JIRA Cleveland emotionally, relate to it. But it's a fascinating characteristic of your team your club at the fan base. Your number one nothing start suspect the Abramovich ear, and it's not about the fact we want so much is that there was something about that team. And the number of leaders will on that pitch for that team. You know? You know, drug Lampard Terry Ashley Cole playing with each other. You go to d'essai mazing central defenders they Bill. This is a team that was just like founded on competitiveness, and dominance and strength and mental to nasty, and there's just just don't see that on the unrecognized teams recognize the so many players with such little confidence. All over the field too. Few leaders on either of these. So I got love it. When United took the lead with eighteen goal. I should say a wonder does a lovely go state by Luke Heqiu this joy on his face. The actually did something good as opposed to finally miscontrol. Appropriately scoop chipped in Luke Shaw where they death past. The you never know of Lou calculator was actually a shot that he miss hit. Sure kept running cross rolled across the middle of the box funniest way to the feet of Chelsea. Oh, boy, one matter joyously drilled at home. This isn't amazing stat and. Then you know, heated goal for movement play drought. Five hundred and twenty seven minutes, just astonishing God love Lincoln assault. Sco can only see waves of relief rolling off him on the United bench. Ever. Here's aged in like president the before. And after phases of Barack Obama young when he began leaving like grandpa. He is aged in the past week in a way, no months, should but showed limps especially in that goal of what they of Silla very good team. I thought the highlight was Romolo Cocco taking sees as penta quitter and literally shoulder charging him about like thirty yards into the front row of the snuffing in sports and Stanley Cup playoff hockey the intensity. Chelsea they took it on the chin and not just they would William charged. The equalizer though, this is this is this heartbreaking to me to watch to be honest mentioned his greatest carrying weakness. Staff at the hair you man, Ruta get five and distance. It was a str-. Great shot perfectly cited. There was no curve even less respect to begin. When he find it was about a week, agreeing basic save it she could have David unless I'm serious ago will be in trouble for that for taking the shot and not passing on. Yeah. I miss imagine. Mention shit to Georgina medical back will sideways changes chair not allow checking Chelsea season. You're not allowed to shoot from distance. Does not want any of that. Yet doesn't hear the judge cigarette. Certainly not from his central defenders, and the have this both know even something but made a complete timing wise balls for the save Millie pairing it to the Marcus Alonso credit and finish with aplomb. Clipped it in into the corner to his third mistake in his last four games. I mean, he's become like a Spanish Jordan Pickford seeing him on his knees. Floundering Hasselhoff after cheeseburger style become motif this final third of the season, possibly a symbol of the discord and disharmony and lack of focus on the mining the United locker room over the the last fifth of the campaign. But my Lord we'll have good days, we all have bad days. But when goalkeepers. Run into a patch bad form, unlike a striker or midfielder, there is no way they can hide this. They absolutely you've got to ask yourself. Also that you've got a shot from a central defender and rebound taken from Chelsea's left bag not from the striker. Is that Chelsea realized that there's a weakness there? It's why mocks Alonzo's following up not a single United defender anywhere near Alonzo. The point that he went and got the rebound. And that was it. If over half time both teams look down realize they're on highways because the came out for the second half as shadows of themselves. All that positively ability to fight for the midfield to control it. Just evaporated the two teams final forty five. Just stumble. The down the field. They couldn't summit a pass in the final third game, which is broken up by litter of injuries and to be on this non the poorer for it. What happened? It was like it's not the richest tour of well I've settled season. There's nothing was I would love to primarily to go to HBO or the BBC. So whether or no. Commercial breaks because I could really do without halftime talk some ritzier, Sarah. 'cause whatever however you've seen all season Chelsea perform certain way in in the first half. And whatever he says at halftime, it always always goes to crap. And so, unfortunately, there's a halftime from radio. Sorry. Chelsea couple of chances in the second half regain had a chance. The Hague the astonishing thing, you know, eat it to win to keep their top four chances alive offered almost nothing. Chelsea new Davide was just the lowest curious in disguise, but couldn't fire shot at him until the very end. And that the death one of those chances fell to equate it spend the previous ninety minutes with his only real contribution being headline visibly receding in game. And he blew his chance for you know, heated Europa league football. Now, surely beckons you just the agony of is. You said the ongoing media speculation about how they can make massive personnel changes cultural changes can I bring in a football director can I ship out the dead wood in the locker room. Gary neville. He got to the heart of it when he asked after the city gave said who would you keep in Manchester? United scored David. It's a really really good question. Rash would definitely Lynn God. Yeah. Thomann as the third best player on that list. Phil Jones for the rest of the league benefit, but the notion of Stein again with a massive scored rebuild. It means really, you know, they're not going to challenge again or there couple years away from town challenge for Chelsea, you said you want Sarah gone. They weren't convincing not bad result. That's good news, a point L Chaffee, but news seems more that Sarah's not going anywhere. I mean, top four football. You police dream still alive quite good season. And he said the Premier League is wonderful. The sixty year old cigarette model muttered I won't remain in the Premier League. I to remain at Chelsea the levels. High the atmosphere is fantastic. I'd like to stay here. I'm sure in two seasons. I can close the gap with Liverpool and city David, you know, again short. Well, I think that the, you know, he's being very clear the messaging to the press has been pretty clear that top four finish champ. Qualification so top four finish or Europa league victory and he's going to keep his job. And I think that Chelsea fans just shaking heads about it. We do not have the place constructed to go and play his football. I don't believe that the Premier League is constructed to gun plays football. Frankly, there's the transfer ban. Just unclear right now exactly how that's going to be enforced, and so whether or not Chelsea going to be at a bringing any other players unclear what's going to happen with Hudson door or frankly with our seven hundred fifty players on loan all over England and Europe, including your boy, Kurt Zuma. There are a lot of thank you once again for building his value ever-higher for Chelsea football club team that will continue to great business somehow, but what a win things print to his promise coming David Christian pulisic. But I have no. Harry's. Name just Ganic. Shame before say CP. He's to direct for Seri. He doesn't won't play to that direct. How does she feel about just passing the ball? Georgina the whole time it seems to be the one most important most important today is like keep on possible by Georgina and he'll he'll do nothing. He three PO. Okay. Broad Snetterton ham. Who since we last pod together only beat Manchester City versus the champion's league semifinal against I acts on Saturday. They fell one nil at home at their new home to West Ham United Jenkins, the lone goal is stunk from make L Antonio lovely guy in the seventh minute Spurs still third two points, clear of four Chelsea and fourthly of us a strain. We came for Spurs touch for centre-half's on the failed to fullbacks resulting had possession without creativity in the final third West Ham pounced in transition, and I'll say man Antonia terrific church of his chest thunderous finish to the season. And some Sally is. Horsey crunchy coachee thrust wonder what did he say about that and the Perv after the game? Dave I way goal ever scored Tottenham's new stadium. Does he just he just loved us news just love playing? They're just I mean, these west. Well, I don't know what he was drinking. It was something clear the mice through but wiser choice both. He was even helping the theory. Say Spurs CD the heavy like heavy minded other Champions League semi final desk in the old Jewish club. Clash agains axe finish this game chasing an equaliser with the old comedy Youngson. You rent strike Jiro? The one asked funds would choose if they were picking the Spurs team western funds who suffered through one of the worst modern stadium openings in primarily history. Cut to enjoy the shout and Freud vending Spurs first loss. New glorious gaffe two games to go Spurs every four point cushion to fifth place, the prospect of Champions League semi final against axe to say to me. And I mean seriously after all they've been through putting should be in the running for manager of the year. He should be too tough games against Balmer than your Everton roads succumb. So we'll just have to see what happens with Tottenham. Yes. Not only securing third place for them. But also avoiding another Saint tottering day, which they look they look definitely four points. Head of on this. And we'll just hope they're going to do mazing star about this race for top four place Daniel story, greed English jealous summed up he said the clubs in third to six drop sixteen points in the last five days. Manchester City and Liverpool have dropped fourteen points in the entire year of two thousand nineteen which is a nice segue into arsenal. Also, flawed Roach. Okay. Yes, arsenal default team involved in that top four key party Sunday morning. They traveled to Lester and the house that broad built. That's how Brendan despite only arriving in February at my house. I'm going to rent it to you in Klopp credit credit the broad facility his team bludgeoned arsenal. Three nil. Bludgeon them Ainsley Maitland Niles was sent in the thirty six minute. Youri tillman's had an Jamie Vardi, double followed all my Jimmy volley playing amazing. He's reborn underbrush. Astles ended the season will and woeful away from continue since beating form of November twenty fifth. They've paid eleven away league games. They've won two drawn three in Las. Six conceding twenty one goals before this game Ameri admitted his team lost their confidence after consecutive slumping defeat. He said I'm going to make them pick it up if they had it wasn't noticeable molester, your ET layman's, James medicine, and that first half Wilford indeedy that all the urgency you'd think they were the team that were fighting for a top four place to creativity the cutting edge arsenal, they really like midtable flipflops on vacation the way their protest and that was before Maitland. Niles was naively sent off for two yellows a love tillman's fantastic. Finish signed him up. Sign up. Sign him up saying the delighted less faithful by the young Belgian that they save it online for Monaco the rest of the game. There was the moment. The many of you will have seen. It's on Twitter legionnaire did chasing playoff place. You see this massive match against fellow aspirins Aston Villa? They scored to go which villa were very annoyed about that place stopped for an injured play. Legionnaire enigmatic manager Marcelo Bielsa, then ordered this players to simply allow Aston Villa to run through on goal -absolutely on challenge. So they could equalize it's an amazing sporting gesture mentioned this hair because that's pretty much what less two goals. They did for these most bills. Totally also plays Moustapha not let him through let the goalkeeper like just kicked -able volley will run on to go. He was he's the crossbar and then had the ball. Oh, hurt me. By the way, that double doing reminded me very gave money to make the Chicago bass, but volatile realized what Jim this weekend is primarily Florida man ten. Nine James reborn on the John to rent for me or do you want to play for me you can do booth hundred in the Premier League football team me also to a third straight defeat in crunch time arsenal funds? Here's one thing team. Well out the top four rage this Tomar season, you ended I think twelve points outside the Champions League places, we asked do you feel the progressive actually being in the hundred champions the qualification it was at to rational a question. Jeff, oh, Ps flooded our in box. This is Johnny tweeted to be honest of Spurs Chelsea United also hadn't been so dreadful. We'd be well out of the top four races this season as well. And my favorite, Dave. I tweeted the daily bitching here for my husband suggest this is not progress. Do you think David look have to say this is first season managing in the Premier League. And I'm gonna give him a lot more credit than Maruta series the way that wants to play football. I think is is a way that can work in the Premier League. And there have been moments we've written him off. And then he's come back and they've played decent football. I think they've got their few pledge show. I think he struggled to figure out his best lineup. And I think a lot of arsenal fans certainly lot of London taxi drivers, most of whom seem to support arsenal. A lot of questions about his team selection. And I feel that who to Shen. Yeah. Noon. I hasn't quite figured out. What his best teams? I think he's been looking for you feel if you body short, and then you realize thank cranky owns a team to that kind of wholesale locker room change is probably not going to occur. So bright side. You've got the euro police to come on Thursday. That's not bad. They team the I I would feel okay. I don't think that's much progress. But I think there is a future future future for them. Okay. Roger now to a game that could help determine who the fire. Final Europa league place two. We've thought about the title race. It's all about Tom four with. I got to tell you the Europa league racist been as been more interesting. I can remember what would one wolves to nuno's Portuguese posse traveled to the Vic misters and never go. Yes goes from L trees route Jimenez, an seventy six minute winner from Diogo shot up put walls four points. Clear of the eighth-place team of also rans named Everton Felicidad as to route Jimenez who made history of the weekend the wolves strike at Taichi retailers single season goals marked for Mexican player in the Premier League with is thirteen to the season fantastic feet for Manitou a little bit of time to adjust to the pace of English football. Mexican stars have always struggled in the Premier League may many now fully in his week from the high end bottle service club that is the top of the table to the Diaby lounge where Glen Murray is always crooning relegation-zone we entered the weekend with three teams fighting to avoid being the one sacrifice. The championship the team currently occupying that spot Cardiff traveled to all ready. Relegated Fulham and lost. One nil. Raj Carter's place in the table, looking more and more like their managers politics, and he remained Fulham's too late.

Football come at you feel all emphasis on all the emotions this game. Forgettable gone it. I'm going to remind you of plead. Here's his one thing that the Americans were found remarkable is that in the second minute Everton got a corner and literally with in unison, the Everton traveling support stood up and claps and went insane that they wanna corner in the first two minutes and I've noticed about advertising family, full Everton fans. Cheer a corner. You see it in the final five minutes of a game.

It's never had a history where its name and the national team changes is the definitive telling of the teams journey gives a reader behind the scenes understanding of the dreams. He'll eat skills.

GSMC Soccer Podcast Episode 142: Community Shield Recap, McKennie Signs With Juve

"Want to know the latest and soccer than listen to the golden state media concept's soccer podcast. LS Is the world the Premier Li we've got you covered the latest update. Matches and news on the League's top players it's the golden state media concept soccer podcasts. A. Listen You're listening to the GMC soccer podcast brought to you by the GMC podcast network I'm your host sandy costs coming to you from Boston Massachusetts. Today, we're GONNA talk about Messi once again because of course, messy is the number one story in maybe world football maybe even the world in terms of sports, we're going to discuss what the latest is surrounding his transfer saga. We're GONNA, talk about the latest stories in world football that are not as big as messy but we need to talk about considering covid nineteen more positive cases are coming out especially out of the England squad, we'll talk about. That as well as breakdown the Champions League team of the season, and then stick around to the end of the show when we will talk about the latest transfer rumors as always to wrap up our show as the summer dwindles to an end on August thirty first. But of course, we're gonNA start in England. We will discuss the community shield which wrapped up in Wembley Stadium this weekend it ended by a final score of one one but arsenal winning on penalties over Liverpool are so the FA Cup champions this season ago Liverpool the primarily champions and they were decisive primarily champions as well. Now, the Community Shield is known as a glorified friendly. So you take this result with a grain of salt. It's first silverware. It's before the season officially kicks off and it's a chance for these two teams to really get their. Starting eleven's rusts out to get them going to get them ready for the season and see what's working what's not working tactically for the managers for the players to test out team selection to get some younger players playing in the game. Liverpool were missing if you players in the game, they were missing Alexander Arnold there were missing Alex Oxley Chamberlain and Jordan Henderson their captain. So they were going into this game full strength. So the expectations were already lowered despite that they were pretty strong. They had a very strong lineup that could really go start in their first primarily game against Leeds. United in two weeks, they had the front three. Monay Salah and for me no, they had the midfield attack the head now in there, they still had milner and Fabio. Van Dyke and Allison at the back as well as Robertson. Toes a very strong lineup that we're GONNA see most of them we see the season began for Liverpool although a few injuries were key for them. In the penalty shootout they had penalties taken by two players who will probably need to step up the season and play in crucial moments including Ryan Brewster and Takumi Minium oh who brewster miss a penalty for and Minneapolis scored the goal and national pelted in this game but it's not near the caliber of the front three that Liverpool have. So this game in terms of entertainment did produce. It was a very entertaining game are liberal really took it to each other arsenal are not the arsenal of last year which finished ninth in the premier. League. It's the team that finished the season stronger the team that won the. Beating Man City and Chelsea in the process is a team that's really come into its own with the killer, Tattoo as the manager and as team that's beginning to find out who they are Lord about themselves. We'll get back to arsenal. What this is voted to is talking about the teams that played in this community shield and talking about what their seasons could look like in two thousand and twenty, two, thousand, twenty, one because the season is just around the corner kicks off in two weeks even the last season ended just about three weeks ago, which is unfathomable and it's unprecedented times that we're living in that we were having this kind of fixture congestion at the season is going to start and turn around this quickly. But let's talk about. Liverpool. The reigning champions, the team that has won the Champions League. Permanently and club World Cup in the past eighteen months the team that has been tearing apart world football as of late what is in store for them? Next season is going to be the same old domination of their venues to is going to be the high press in the high pressure and bouncing an eighteen point lead on man city again, or is this team bound to slow down? Is this team about to have a dip in form? Is this team at risk of standing? Still that is the question about Liverpool that we wanNA talk about on the show today. So for the next season, Liverpool are in serious danger of taking massive dip in form and start not winning many games because let's not remember in the two, thousand, eighteen, nineteen, th season when Liverpool finished second by razor thin margins to Manchester City Liverpool had only lost one game the entire season. They suffered just one defeat and it was to Manchester City who won the league in the end. And then Liverpool. Wet On this undefeated tear. And they didn't lose a game. In the primarily for thirteen months, they did not lose a single match from January of two thousand and nineteen to February of two thousand twenty. Emmy the very beginning of January and the very end of February. It ended that other feeder tear ended with three of the feet to Waterford, and then we had the primarily restart and Kobe nineteen shut football for a long time and then Liverpool kind of had to get back into gear they suffered quite. A high amount of losses when the primarily restarted including a demolishing loss to Manchester City, by a score of I, think five nil it was now with that match, you could say that Liverpool weren't really looking for the result and they were as hungry city was because appoint Liverpool already click the league. The already had torn apart. England whole season and by that point they didn't really feel. The motivation or the hunger that city did who still fighting champions football, who is still fighting to stay informed because they still had champions football play with their round sixteen tie against Rao Madrid yet to be decided yet. So Liverpool at the end of the season, you could accredit their dip in form to not as much hunger because they already have title winning Games got going to do much except for make the records more impressive for them, and even then when you have a gold medal, doesn't really matter as much to you so Liverpool. For the most part in the past eighteen months have just. been on the undefeated tear have not lost at all and they just keep marching forward because you're KLOPP astonishingly. They have not really been active in the transfer market for four windows. Now, the last time that the ripple were active in the market were it was the two thousand, eighteen summer. It was when they brought in. Allison. Van Dyke into the squad to for mystify the team when you had the goalkeeper Van Dyke to use that coutihno money to really solidify the defense and the goalkeeping position to positions which have been very poor for. Liverpool in the past decade or so. So apart from that transfer window. Liberal not done much. But what you're in clock is approached. What his approach has been is just keep the players they have to strengthen the chemistry within squad. Get them going and getting along much better. Without really the distraction or the burden for lack of a better word for bringing in more players into the squad and for boosting competition, he wanted to give his guys as much confidence as they could get. And build them up and have them feel that they could go on and they could win the title by themselves and? I admit I was very skeptical of this approach. I recall last summer Liverpool spent money on no players. The only transaction of note that they made was giving a contract extension to democracy. And I was very critical of that. I thought that Liverpool where risk of standing still that by not getting better, they were getting worse. Obviously I was wrong because apparently you're enclosed who's talking about is one of the best managers in the world and he coach of this team to even better than they were the year before. And Luckily for them Manchester City also nosedived and form this season, and that's what made the gap between the two. So decisive and that's what ellipoid keep going not to mention that I keep bringing hunger Liverpool. Still had the hunger although they one Champions League and that it was there six. European crown. And is probably the crown jewel in European football. The premise league is the one that got away. For Liverpool. Thirty years. Liverpool were so close twenty, nine, thousand, nine falling behind Manchester City by one point that they wanted bad Manchester City of the champions. League so their eyes weren't necessarily on the Premier League and that is why the gap was so big. These part of it these that's part of it and I think the hunger aspect may be. A little over emphasized and. Being a little too much. But in this case I think hunger is key. X factor in the title race this year and it's a key factor. If Liverpool are GONNA, go on to win. It's the second consecutive primarily title. which by going thirty years without winning one, and then they would win two consecutive titles that in itself would be a huge fee for this club and it'd be great for the fans great for the club. But let's talk about liberals. Roster. Because people. Are Arguably one key injury away from crashing out and really burning up just to go to the Champions League. Every player on that Liverpool squad is valuable. And his value by your clock some are more indispensable than others. One is allison the Brazilian goalkeeper who is one of the most expensive keepers in the world and he has been. Fantastic for ever since coming from Roma. But he got injured in the Champions League last season and he did not play in the second leg against Athletico Madrid in the round of sixteen. And it costs Liverpool. So much. Because in that second leg, it was his backup. Adriaan from West Ham from the year before who? Made a major howler sending the past sending a pass right to Madrid attackers at setting up mark AC- rented, score a brace, and then run away with the result and Anfield Shock Liverpool by sending them out right away in the round of sixteen. Just, losing their goalkeeper cost. Liverpool, in the end and that's the Liverpool that we know for two thousand sixteen, the team that had similar manually and goal that was giving it away causing turnovers of the back and losing easy goals when they were really outscoring their opponents. So decisively that these goalkeeping errors made the differences between wins and ties ties and defeats, and that's what I'm concerned about for the report because Alison, he was hurt. I'm on assuming Allison's going to get hurt again Ahmad assuming that he is a transfer his. Injury history excuse me but other players on this team if they're not available if you have Jordan Henderson miss a month. How costly would that be Liverpool? If, you miss. Muhammad Law for a month because Muhammad Law has been. In Liverpool he's not really missed much time although the Champions League two dozen nineteen. Borsa were barshop played Liverpool and Salah was absent from that second leg. But Liberals miraculously snatched a miracle comeback. Alexi never seen before that may never happen again for this club. So apart from that much lot would if he goes out, would've Saudi-omani misses out. What if you have antic- missile because Van Dyke. Is the strongest player on this team. Centreback the most important position for the report because Liverpool have not had much trouble in the urine klopp era attacking or creating chances. Even. If you miss solid reminded for a bit, they will still create chances because they are very well coached. They're very explosive and they're very clinical in front of goal what to talk about the defense that has been Kelly's he'll for such a long time and it hasn't been the past three seasons because of Van Dyke and Allison but missing Van Dyke would be a devastating blow for Liverpool and I don't know if it's a bullet can recover from especially Van Dyke misses a month or two. Because that's a heavy part of the season especially, if it's in a decisive part of the season said he misses. February like Allison did and he misses the Champions League knockout stage. What have you Mrs Winter, break When England is known for having very congested fixture schedule. Present problems for Liverpool and I worry that Liverpool are one key injury away from burning up at crashing. So hopefully, it doesn't happen for the recall but order for that to happen in need to bring in some more signings because this team is not deep enough to make another premier league season winning campaign, they need some help and I know that they've been linked with ti all summer. That the Spanish midfielder from Byron. Munich is heavily covered by your and that's IAGO. Even wants to move himself. So, what's the issue wise if it happened well, apparently Liverpool hasn't even made a bid yet. Liverpool have not talked to Byron at all about Te'o inquiry. Barner waiting and Byron have openly stated there anticipating digital livable coming in the next few days but Liverpool adopted anything yet. and. Reports are saying that liberal need to pay thirty million euros to buy at the least for buyer to give up ti on. And liberal are reportedly unwilling to match that feat because they don't have the money so that they'd have to make some sales. And liberal don't seem intent on making sales. They've let go with some club players Avalon and Daniel Sturridge last summer. But Deliver Liverpool have the assets the players to sell to get that much money back in return because talking about thirty million euros and summer of in Nineteen for a team Liverpool that has so many players that are making high wages that they've spent so much transfer fees on like allison and Van Dyke and Salah that's going to be challenging. So the report very slow to make this transfer work. Geography comes into the full. This is totally different because then you're talking about a much more dynamic ripoll and even though they're an injury away from struggling maybe ti ago is a huge upgrade on what they have in that squad already. You're talking about midfield with Veena holding the Fort Down Milner, and why now of really over the past two years KLOPP system and you have to their who was a big money transfer from Leipzig a few years back but is really not anything. He scored a few goals and he had a good campaign says the restart but he said injury problems, fitness problems and productively problems so. Would step right in slot into the starting eleven, and he would make this team explosives than it was before because as good as this team has been. The weak link of this team is the midfield they lack that creative. Magic type of player that number ten that you have in the midfield that can give those balls over to Monday in Salah up those players, they can link up passes. The players that could score the goals, take the burden off the shoulders of the front three because if the goals are clinic from the front three, then the goals aren't coming from any were undeliverable squad and that's why it's so important. A Tiago does get in the building whether or not. He does this summer I'm not sure I know Liverpool will probably get him because Ti. Goes. Contract runs up at the end of the year. So even if Tiago stays at barring the season, he sees intent on liberal move and Liverpool. I'm sure would be keen on getting a free transfer for ti go because I'm sure by the end of the season, their interest will not have been tempered. So geogra- will be read at some point, but will be sooner or later. In a word for liberal sake that they're going to be intent on sitting still and not gonNA. GET IAGO in the building, the only side of they made the summer. Is a left back from Olympia Coz to give competition. To Andy. Robertson. That's the only signing they made in the past two seasons. and. That's an issue. I don't think that's enough to give Liverpool enough strength or push to get over the line next year in the premier league. I've concern for the, ripple sake. From crashing and burning and I'm also worried that they don't have a plan B in place. If that happens, they need to add to the front three. WHAT IF SALAH GOES DOWN YOU'RE GONNA put a Riggi back. You need more than the because a region maybe a club legend for scoring a couple of goals in the champions knockouts last year, but he's not up to snuff. His death in a starting eleven at Liverpool at this point liberal do have the money. They are one of the biggest clubs in the world right now they have won so many trophies over the past few years revenue streaming in. So much so fast right now. They can afford to get players on loan or by some backup level players to fill in for slaughter monay but higher level players than Oreg. So that when they have. A season coming. So when they have injuries in the season appleby okay. Plan B. is key for the pool because plan has worked for so long, but it's bound to disappoint at some time during the season and if liberal starts slow next year, it could be very tough climb to get back at the top of the table because Liverpool the past two years in which they finished with ninety eight plus points. Started Very Fast Man City. He slipped up early losing a game to wolves or Newcastle or Norwich if Liverpool suffered the same feet and if they start slow and Manchester City pouts on that. Then Liverpool, could have the script flipped on them where they could be chasing Manchester City all year long. That's certainly. A palpable fate that could happen Liverpool. And it will be difficult for the report maintain that level of winning that they've had over the past two years because they're a results based team. That just grinds out results and guarded at results pass through seasons, but that formula will not work forever especially if they don't bring in any new fresh blood which they have not of besides one left back from Greece. And that relentless drive and energy to anno- Champions League primarily, trophy is going to be difficult to sustain because hunger is something that not everybody has and Liverpool they've had hunger because they were seeking. So they have not had now they've reached the top of the mountain. Will they be hungry to get back at the top down when they've already gotten their? That's a question that has not that we have to figure out the answer to that. We will not know until the season begins. But before we move onto the next segment arsenal, give them credit. They have won two trophies in the last three weeks, which is great for this club. It's great for McLarty, Tetra to give himself confidence going into next season. Because liberal coming off. Excuse me arsenal are coming off a woeful season finishing ninth. In the primary, League. They won the Africa but in the league, they were just awful. Their defense was shambolic. David. Luiz was the face of one of the worst defenses in Europe and while you had locked US bombing scoring loads of goals, it was just a disastrous season for arsenal. Next season could be different. They're getting younger they're getting stronger getting well coached. Killer touch has gotten this team playing much better. Also shut up to Chadwick Bozeman and Obama gang honoring Cheddar Bozeman with a condom forever celebration with his opening goal and ethic in the Community Shield. This team has brought in some new talent. They have willy on WHO's GonNa, add the attack who's GonNa make it even more explosive. You have Williams SL- Saliba, who is a French defender at nineteen years old coming back from a loan spell in France and he's being touted as a promising on defender. We'll be counted on by during the season and then they're gonNA pair Saliba. With Gabrielle. The prolific Brazilian none defender from Lille who arsenal bopper, twenty, two, million, this summer. So now you're strengthening the defense, the attack is still as clinical as it has been. Our arsenal are. A sneaky top contender. especially. Based on what could happen in the early playoffs because although arsenal finish below the Europa. League. Spots. By virtue of their ethica victory, they will get a qualifying round spot and they will have to do with. They could so qualify for the League, and if they don't there will be a huge blessing in disguise to be honest because if if arsenal are gonNA, get back at the top of the heights and get back to European football. They Will WanNa do it by finding their footing during the season with no European football play with no additional burdens that you will have spurs and city the United. Or even Lester. Because even with Liverpool back in two thousand and seventeen. In your KLOPP's first full season Liverpool finished eighth the season before and had no European football whatsoever, and that allow them to exclusively focus on the primarily can getting back into the Champions League and it worked and we know what's happened to Liverpool ever since two champions. League finals one win one primarily victory. So it can work out for Arsenal, and if they get back in the champions, the season arsenal could see a pivotal shift in their club's history going to the next few seasons. So their defense que. Tenga is. But arsenal will not be the arsenal that we saw last year this team that we more tactically schematic. This team that will not let as many goals pass, and this is a team that will be as prolific going as they have in the past few seasons because you peppy Obama Yang. And William. Now, it's going to be a very funnier for Arsenal and we'll have to see what happens with them, and if they contend for the top four, because it will be very daunting season with all the top teams as strong as ever.

In St in the search box. Off. Welcome back from our commercial break. Thank you once again for listening to the GMC soccer podcast once again, I'm your host sandy cost. Now it's time for our next segment and we're GONNA talk about Lionel Messi once again because although we've been talking about him for so many times already on this show over breaking down every little detail about this transfer saga, which just building up to be a pretty conic Telenovela special in Barcelona as of late. It's so we're talking about because this transfer saga has not gone anywhere at until Messi gets his move or tell messy makes us decision to stay. This decision, this saga is not going anywhere, and if it's not going anywhere than we had to talk about it because he is the greatest player ever to walk the earth. So I think it's Talking about and talking about what is next for the origin time. So. Let's talk about the latest news and rumors in this saga. Messy is told by. That he will not attend training on Monday. And players had to report to Barcelona, today for their Kobe testing because bar suppliers are coming off of they're very short holiday off of a two week break they'd had since their eight to defeat to buyer Munich the Champions League quarter-finals. Before they had to go back training everyone needs to take a Kobe test mixture. It's negative and then report to training the Messi has insisted that the club he's told the club that he would not report to Cova testing. And he is not reported to go protesting. So messy is absent for training. He is absent from testing because macy's decision. You could say what you want about the papers in the rumors of what's swirling around the world that maybe this is all paper talk it's not valid well, pointblank messy did not show up. So it's positive. It's a fact that Messi his decision his mindset is firm. It's irreversible and there is nothing that this club can do to soon him back. Messy cannot be one backup Russell on of the damage has been done. The damage is permanent. And MESSI wants out. Now it's going to be difficult for Messi to do so because he's still in this process of resolving a legal dispute with the club that is really the key attorney get messy we'll get his move or not now. Lolita has actually waited on the messy issue and they've had to. Actually release a statement. To put their stance on what's happening right now in the champions in with Barcelona. Excuse me. LOLLYGAG. Have actually sided with. With with Barcelona. Lolita has been forced to comment and they confirmed that. They are taking birth aside in the legal wrangle with messy that his contract is still out until the end of the twenty, twenty, twenty, twenty, one season at the only way for him to exit is is if his release clause is Matt, which is again, seven, hundred million euros under the terms of MRIs contract. He has been saying all along and his legal team has been arguing that the Claus's contracts which gives messy unilateral power to cancel his contract at any time at will whenever he pleases has expired. Because, originally, it would have expired at the end of the season June thirtieth. Transfer. Window. Officially opens the next July first. But Kogo nineteen is really made things difficult for everybody involved on June thirtieth Borsa were playing Lollygag for. Their season was in full swing. At that point, they were still in a heated title race throughout Madrid. And they were not on holiday and they were not in a transfer window. And their season ended on August fourteen when Byron humiliated them in Lisbon. Massey's arguing. That is caused gives them the power to walk out. Would have expired at the end of the season. The real end of the season, not your thirtieth because that was not the real end of the season. And that has become a key issue here. For Barcelona. And it's really given them. The high ground Bursa. Have the advantage right now. In transfer negotiation. Because they are sitting still they are far from eager to sell messy. They're far from eager to terminate his contract earlier than they would want him to. Barsha. In the situation that they're in. Because legally. As. lollygag stated as their clever was understated. They have the power to keep messy around. And they have the power to wait for club to come in with seven hundred million euros to snatch him away and then let messy go to them. But bars are not going to terminate the contract no messy because that would be. An, all time, gaffe, for world. How do you think Joseph Bar Tomase legacy would live on if he was the president that oversaw a club terminated macy's contract. Let him walk without any compensation for Barcelona whatsoever. It's an all time disaster that's unfolding here. And the legal disputes with the club right now. Is probably going to stand in favor of the club it's going to be difficult for Messi and his team to argue if they have any validity now you have to, you have to sympathize with Nessie because he has a lot of valid points in this argument. That it is true the season. is a season like no other. That covert has made things so difficult that Cova extrapolated deadlines, months behind. That MESSI has the right. MESSI has the argument. that. He can leave right now that the clause is still exercisable although Barcelona have stood firm and they will stand firm. So it's very difficult to see MESSI getting his move this summer have to admit. I have advocated very much for Messi on the show in the past I've said time and time again that Messi needs out. That MESSI needs to get out of Barcelona if he wants to salvage the fast the last years of his career, if he wants to play the top of his game, if he wants to play for Pep Guardiola and play for a manager that will set him up for success and I'm a manager that will throw him under the bus in the press. Messy needs to leave. If he wants to go out on top if he does want to win more trophies if he does want to go into the World Cup in twenty, twenty two and have the best chance possible of winning the World Cup with Argentina or even winning the Copa America next summer in Argentina is homeland. There is a lot at stake for Messi that would force them to if he has any hope of salvaging the last few years of his career. Now. One step the most important step is getting out of Barcelona. Because he can go wherever he wants, he can have any desirable destination to go but if bars are unwilling to part, then this move is not going to happen. And no club has seven hundred million dollars right now to pay Barcelona. No Club has that much money. Now are now. Because even the clubs that would ordinarily like Manchester United for PSG Manchester City have already been very active in the transfer market Manchester City annual and PSG have already spent sixty million euros this summer. Inky Gardy to a permanent deal to stay in Paris and then Manchester City setting me than occupy from Bournemouth at fed on twitter from Valencia. They've already spent sixty million. And they don't have enough assets to sell and make that much money back now Manchester City reportedly offered Barcelona. A huge swap package for Messi would you include about one hundred and fifty million euros plus Bernardo Silva? Sterling. And Air Garcia. Exchange for Lionel Messi. That's a massive package, a massive trade package that Bursa would accept in exchange for on messy. Transfer, you have a lot of players unfold. But Barcelona have insisted and they will assist. Unless you have seven hundred million euros in your hand right now. Messy. Is Not going anywhere. And MESSI will not be going because of that because no one has the money for that right now. Now, let's say that miraculously club does have seven, hundred, million or alternative situation. Messy somehow. Gets out. Of Barcelona. then. Maybe closer to the seven, hundred million but maybe. His claws is exercise that may be messy finds a legal loophole of his team, and they find a way to get him out. Even, mass situation. What club can afford his wages right now? Because MESSI. is obviously expensive in terms of transfer fee. But he is also a very hefty commitment financially even after he is your product when he is your property. If messy truly what's a Barcelona which I think he does. He lied to make some sacrifices. One of which is wages he will need to take a pay cut to leave the Camp Nou. Because MESSI has picked the absolute worst time to make a move. This is the summer of covid nineteen. This is the summer. When a champion was played on August twenty third in an empty stadium in Lisbon. A year, which is seeing the biggest clubs in the world lose five, ten, million euros per game through the lost revenue from fans not being able to attend. This is a season in which clubs are very financially shorthanded. And a season which clubs already been active with the transfer market. The contents messy like psg man city of already spent a lot of money. and. So you're already. Playing with fire here, you're already don't have a lot of money to play with to get Lena messy even if you do want him it even if you are inspiring and fantasizing about a possible Neymar Imbaba messy trio or fantasizing about a messy reunion Manchester, there's a lot going on here. So. Even beyond the transfer fee. If messy wants to move, he will have to make a sacrifice and it'll be as pay if Mexico pay cut I think he has a much better chance of landing spot and Man City or psg because psg especially have a very front heavy team. Thirteen is heavy with players. With heavy wages. You're talking about Neymar bare just to players that are making so much money. Annually de Maria. E. Cards just been into a permanent deal and he's expensive as well. Kino's killer navas three time Champions League winning goalkeeper. Marco. Materazzi. Is. Expensive team. If messy really wants to see himself in Paris if he wants to live out the volumes of his career in Paris. If he wants to name our reunion if he wants to play with Kilian Mbappe. And Pass the torch if you will to the next great player in the world when Messi hangs up excludes for good. MESSI needs to take matters into his own hands. Take a pay cut. And let, Paris, get him. Or just want to go to Paris. Manchester City. Themselves have a heavy wage bill as well with Sergio. Guero Gabrielle his from Sterling Kevin Do Banana Edison. It's a very expensive roster that Manchester House well. If messy wants to go anywhere. It's going to be club can afford him. At, his price. That will be one piece away from contending. That is a team that is attention for major European. Silverware. And a team with a good coach. Manchester City fits the bill just perfectly and obviously city is the most obvious and most romantic fit for the Argentine number ten. And there are rumors circulating about this before reports that Messi has called Gordon himself eighties called Neymar pitching possible move that they could both go to Manchester. City and take over England together. You've also seen Sergio guero changes instagram handle. Now I don't know how much you out read into this and social media activity whether it's a player deleting all of their posts that have the team in it or if it's changing their name or if it's on following the club on Instagram? Whatever you think about that. This will affect how you think about this situation Sergio Guero, who has messes countrymen who has played with played with Messi Cope America's in World Cups. Galore has changed his instagram handle. From Kuna guero ten to just. KHUDA guero. Where was dropped the number ten from his instagram handle. At, of course, Sergio Guerrero is the Manchester City number ten. And he? Would be insinuating here that if messy was in. Manchester. That guerra would forfeit the number tend to give to messy. And why wouldn't he? Because there's no messy is going to change number ten to play a different team. Obviously, Sergio Wairoa is a good friend of messy admirers messy and would do anything to get him in the building. Now, whether or not anything in motion. Who knows? It's unlikely. Any social media gossip. In determining an opinion on it, messy is on move to Manchester. City. But like I said, Manchester City already sixty million euros in debt in the summer in net spending because they've already spent money on tourism. And their financial accounts that the soft forget their financial accounts will be under such heavy scrutiny this summer after merely being axed from the Champions League and by accident being suspended from European football entirely for two years. That it seems very far fetched to imagine it messy. would. Be Attainable to sign. Because Manchester City were an uphill decision away from being suspended. Obviously they were not the decision was overturned. They will be playing Champions League football next season. But their financial accounts are going to be heavily monitored and UEFA is going to be looking at them with a magnifying glass all year long and for the foreseeable future as long as they continue to spend as freely as they have. You're talking about the club that was very close to being suspended for financial fair play regulations breaches if you sign messy. Then they're gonNA look at you even more. WHO's to say that MESSI would signed for Manchester City and then get banned again from by wafer from the Champions League for the next two seasons that's certainly a possibility. So it certainly is worth saying that Messi the city isn't epic pipedream at this point because of the financial ramifications, the that UEFA will be monitoring Manchester City up the Wazoo this year. In. The Barcelona. Like I said before that I will continue to go to. Will Not let go of messy less club me to seven hundred, million, your lease clause. Because it seems that Messi is not going to win this legal battle nasty will not win this battle. So it's going to be difficult for Messi to get this year. And who knows maybe messy will sit the bench maybe messy will disip the season. Certainly, possible because Messi seems very intent on never playing in a Bursa shirt again. That is certainly what it seems to be right now and I don't think this will happen. I. Don't think Messi will ever play for Bros again whether or not. He sits a year to get his move to Manchester sitting next year while have to see about that but it's GonNa, be very hard to see. MESSI. Leaving the club this summer because Barcelona will not let him go. Unless they meet release clause although before we move on, I wanNA talk about your Bartolomeo very briefly because he has said reportedly he would resign. If it would keep Bessie of Barcelona. Would that change his mind. I don't think so. It's very difficult to see even is relationship is so sour with Parts Mu that Messi refuses to play for Bartolomeo, any longer even if he's out of the building the board still there the recruited players are still there he is still carrying this club singlehandedly and Barsa would still be a one man club and Messia would have all responsibility all the culpability in every single defeat never. Champions League. heartbreak. Parsa or a man club they weren't always woman club. But they've been a one club since name are left. Ever since MESSI. Had to do it on his own In ever since the hiring. Of Drought Verde. It has been on the shoulders of medicine messy only. That's been a one man team. They used to be a much better team are much more well, router team Messi used to be the centerpiece of a high octane destruction mechanism, which tactic on European football for years. And that's what makes the break-up between Messi and A Shakespearean tragedy because you're talking about the Cadillac number ten, which lifted Barcelona in moments of Oblivion dispels of glory immortality, and he's leaving because he's been abandoned on a stranded island of poor recruitment and coaching by the coaches. The board and the President and MESSI has become escape go of all Barcelona's problems and he will get his move is to matter of when not if?

Welcome back to the GMC soccer podcast. We have returned from our commercial break once again, my name is Sam cost. Thank you so much for joining us today coming Hugh from Boston Massachusetts Right now, this is a little more laid back no more messy talk. No more talk about transfers for now right now, just want to talk about some the loose ends in world football and talk about the stories that have not been talked about so much in the news, but a worth shedding light to. Because they are a few stories that have not given too much attention in the news and we're talking about the very briefly and historic such as Kobe nineteen who tested positive as of late and preview a little bit of what's to come in the international break coming up in a week from now. So, let's start with a flashback last season start with the Champions League a star with the team of the season in the champ easy from last year. So you wave released their team a few days ago. Shed light on some of the notable. Players that have made the team and talk about the teams that made a deep run that have really gotten some love from UEFA this year. So you with a team of the season for the Champions League a start with goalkeeping position three goalkeepers Manuel Neuer from buying Munich Jato blocked from Madrid. Lopez from Leon and Leon is obviously the semifinalist making their first trip to the semi finals in ten years only losing to borrow Munich in route beating you Venice in Manchester City. Deserve spot for Lopez for shore defenders, Alfonso. Davies from Byron Munich Joshua. kimmage. From Byron Munich Virgil van. Dyke from Liverpool Diet Macondo from rb Leipzig Angelenos from rb life sick and Alba from buyer Munich. Midfielders Tiago from Byron Munich Kevin Debra from Manchester City. Who Some lawyer from Leon Leon Fresco from Byron Munich Ryan Saboteur from rb Leipzig Martinez PS GPD Alejandro Goldman from Atlanta and Thomas Muller from Byron Munich and the forward line surge navarine from Byron. Munich Robert Levin off ski from Byron, Munich Killian Imbaba from PSG Neymar for PSG. Lino Messy from Barcelona and Raheem Sterling. For, Manchester City. That is the UCLA team of the season and obviously there are some notable. And obvious choices messy now, notably messy is the only Barcelona player in this eleven in this UCLA team of the season, not even Terse Dagan from Barcelona has made this squad Messi has made this. Champions League team of the season, which obviously speaks volumes for how. Massive this clubs fall from grace has been the only messy is at this level anymore we've had players like any s chevy and even pk Thursday again Suarez and Neymar having spots in this team. But now messy is the only player of note that isn't anything of significance or of consequence reversal over the past year. At least in Europe's most important and most. Significant Banner Competition. Now, one noticeable admission is Cristiano Renaldo. Cristiano Renaldo is a staple in this team. For better or for worse, you could talk about his level of play but Rinaldo is and will be one of the greatest players ever to play the position. And one of the best players ever. In the Champions League, he's the all time goalscorer for the Champions League even this season although you did not make as far as they wanted to. All the had a great writer sixteen against the on even though you they crashed out in the Ron Sixteen Rinaldo did have two goals in the second leg after the restart because the first leg was always back in February. The second leg was an August and Rinaldo did have a very good game scoring two goals almost willing his team over the finish line although wasn't quite enough for you Venice in although you've had a very bad season sagging their manager after just one season signed the likes of Aaron. Ramsey and Adrian Rubio on heavy wages on free transfers. Just. A failure season only winning Syria by one point crashing out of the at the route of sixteen in. Europe's most prestigious football competition run although. Arguably did not deserve to be omitted. Now you can talk about navy UEFA last season. Making a special inclusion, Rinaldo after he was left out of the UEFA team of the year and we know how all feels about being omitted from anything and who knows AV wave a will. Put. Back. In this U. UCLA team of the year. But I think we're not deserve a spot in this roster. Is. One of the best players in Europe this season and if anything he played better than he should have given the sports cast you've have had this season. I think although is still one of the best players in the world even age thirty five he is still going strong and he deserves a spot in this team. Now, it's tough to say that any of these players in the forwards don't deserted because obviously messy deserve spot Neymar. Maybe, not Neymar because Neymar had a very unsuccessful knockout stage and I'm not talking about, PSG, failing to win the Champions League final because they didn't have a good season in terms of March into the final taking advantage of teams that crashed earlier than they did. But let's talk. About Neymar. This season I think about the Atalanta game I think about Neymar missing three sitters. Hitting the target. Even forcing saves for the Atalanta goalkeeper. Neymar melting down having one of the worst games of his. So I think for Neymar, maybe he will be the most notable. Most obvious choice to substitute Rinaldo into the eleven. But with name or you have the high name value of Neymar you're talking about a team that went to the Champions League final the number ten for Paris. It's not a surprising. He's in this eleven. Excuse me not the eleven just this team but even though Neymar had a good season with the St. maybe he doesn't deserve this. Levin doffs. Eleven ski has had the season of his life and the best season. Any players had all season at least in terms of goal scoring with fifty five goals across all competitions, this year and scoring double digits in the Champions League with much fewer games as well with no second legs in the quarterfinals or the semi finals. And obviously, search avary also came out of the show this year scoring goals in the knockout stage as well including two goals against against Leon in the semifinals. Obviously searching every. Earned her spot. In this roster, you have killing a egg also was prolific maybe singlehandedly willed psg over the line in that Atalanta quarter-final. And then Raheem Sterling also a very good season where he sterling has taken. So many strides to becoming a great footballer, not just a good footballer becoming a great finisher great player under pep Guardiola for Manchester City although as good as the season as he had. What I will remember released early for the season at least in the champions, league especially in the bubble. Is. That chancy had against Leon with the goal gaping wide open with across coming from debris on the right side. All strong need to tap into an empty net and he couldn't do it and he skied into the stands. That will be defining loss a defining miss instruments career. And unfortunately, it will devolve for the rest of his life. No matter what he wins the rest of his career with England or Manchester City. It will be a career defining miss for him sterling. Now in terms of the rest of the team, Byron Munich has players in abundance. On this team, they have Noyer goalkeeper they have Davies, catch and Allah in the defense, and in the midfield they have molar they have Gerrad anti-nato not to mention every eleven Danski to Ford's you have three midfielders, three defenders one goalkeeper. Almost their entire starting eleven got into this team, which is actually unbelievable. You're talking about maybe even better sich engine bulletin. As the most notable players that were omitted from this team could have put the entire barring starting eleven. As the Champions League team of the season because BAR-B.-Que were that high power they were that powerful. They had a great season. I tell you what buyer Munich. I know that winning the trouble. Is Not. This trouble seems to be a little less special for buyer given that the Bundesliga was rather east for them in the end when the when the league restarted that the German Cup is usually a shoe in for Byron Anyway and that the Champions League, it's been about title they won the Champions League but Byron won the league this year they won the trouble this year in such decisive fashion by just steamrolling the entire pool of competition by sending Barcelona into a spiralling crisis in which. They've made messes decision to leave the number one soap opera in the world. Besides that, you're talking about. Wiping out. By scoring seven goals on aggregate scoring seven goals against Spurs in the Group Stage one game. Firing, unit have just been on an absolute tear of the likes that. We haven't seen from a club in many many years. I mean even Liverpool last year winning the Champions League. For nearly as powerful as buyers are. Being able to score goals that will having that number nine in the fall with Levin. Dos Sqi and Levin doffs Ski. He is the best striker in the world. There's no doubt about that and the season he's had even Liverpool's onto the player like that. Even Barcelona when they won the champions. League they didn't have Luis Suarez playing at the level of is right now even when round Madrid one three on the trot and four and five years even curry Ben Zuma didn't stand a chance didn't score the goals at the lakes love and Dos key has and even Rinaldo. Or an although is a natural goal score plays on the wing these played on the wing during those glory years at Madrid Laskey is the face and the epitome of a high-octane goal-scoring machine that had that couldn't be stopped by anybody in the world. And it's a credit to eleven ski and really the supporting cast was there for doffs key as well because we talked a lot about our sloan on the show as of late have the supporting cast around Messi has just been below average just so far from good enough Byron has been more than good enough. They have been fantastic and a great supporting cast and very complementary to Robert Levin doffs Game Thomas Miller. With a career resurgence in a deserve spot in the team of the season with a career high in assists and only the second player to get twenty plus assists in a league. This year since TR TIRIAC RE did it. Almost two decades ago. And with Thomas Smaller twenty plus assists fewer games than most leagues as well, and then on the wings you have you been able to replace Frank Robbery and I and Robin with savvy. Loan. Deals for Yvonne each and Philippe Coutinho who did enough for you at least both scoring goals against Barcelona And? Bringing Lower Sanni next year is going to be scary. Fire Munich will be an absolute force with the pace and the technical ability of Leroy sonnet because he is better than both of parasitic anquetil combined. Sawday will make a huge stride for this buyer team and they will have a chance to even repeat next year. Now. With the rest of the team, the wings, especially the fullbacks have been revolutionary for this team. Being able to find an extra dimension of attacking pace with the likes of Joshua Kimmage and Afonso Davies. Alfonso Dave especially what a diamond in the rough he is for Byron Nick spending only I, believe it was twelve million euros that buyer gave to Vancouver whitecaps for the services of Positive Davies. And he's become an absolute force. He is one of the best players in the world already. And he's not even twenty one years old. Not to mention my, we'll lawyer now thirty four years old. While he might not be the goalkeeper he was at the height of his game say when Germany won the World Cup. Will lawyer is still a dependable goalkeeper that make saves when he needs to and in the knockout stage of the Champions League although lawyer was not tested a lot in the bubble in Portugal. He made saves when he had to. When when he was counted on he ought the job done especially in the final because although PSG were shutout. PSG had chances in abundance in the first half, especially with Imbaba and Neymar and de Maria were challenging the back line. But in the end Malanois also gets his spot in the team of the year, and then we'll moyer has shown no signs of slowing down even though. It was a chaotic turmoil time for Noyer crashing out with the World Cup in. Germany and missing a whole year with buyer due to an injury. That situation with the team of the season Byron with so many players in this team also briefly. I'll one hundred Gomez the only player in this team, and it makes sense to hundred Gomez in this team Atalanta. Deserve a spot at least one player in this team of the season because they were the fairytale of the season in. World football especially in the Champions League and it's such a shame that we had seen him crash out and falter the way they did against psg in stoppage time and you have to wonder. Would they have gone all the way to the final if they hold on for just five more minutes? That is a Irap on the team of the season talk pivot over to Cova Nineteen. Now don't enjoy talking about Cova nineteen. Didn't exist and that it's really for it four football into a standstill for months, and it's forcing fans out of the stands for. Indefinitely. Frankly, and covert is continuing to spread across world football players are starting to test positive more in abundance. Manchester. United's Paul Pogba test positive for coronavirus this week as well as Cottam. Hotspurs Tanguy in Donnelly to Frenchman who had both been call up to the French squad and have, and France. Have some games coming up in the nation's league in the upcoming international break and depending on the recovery and if they get negative tests in the coming days, they probably will have to miss their games for the French national. Team. Now Francis is at as impacted as England has because the lions have have four members of their team test positive. Now, at this moment, the names of all the players have not been disclosed two of them that have our Tammy Abraham and Mason Mel now England have. Against Iceland and Denmark in the break in the relief and nations league and many players for England have gone on holiday. Because the primary season ended weeks ago. And although it's a very short holiday that these players are having never had a five month lay-off because cove nineteen shutting down soccer and pretty much the world's putting this all in lockdown. These players are going on holiday in having vacations going to foreign countries like Greece and tropical islands. Trying to enjoy themselves. Now I'm all for a vacation, but this is bigger than football obviously, but I'm not sure now is taking vacations right now because it screams of privilege that you can have players going out on vacation during a pandemic although they wanNA break and they wanna enjoy themselves we're going back to work for another season I get that but it puts players at risk it puts their families at risk right now because you have young players Tammy Abraham and Mason now they're both younger the twenty two years old. And they're both to English guys just WanNa have fun disguise being dudes and obviously that's great in any other summer that wouldn't be an issue. But right now it's not great to have players going out on vacation going and traveling and going on airplanes and contaminating the virus, and then spreading it to their families in running into people that may be at more risk not to mention that these players are now going to miss their. Time with the international team. They're not gonNA playing for England in this international break because they've been exposed to cove in nineteen. So spreading the virus is all only hurting them but even keeping them out of the English national team, which is certainly not what they want. So, what I'm trying to say is Even though it's tempting to go on holiday even if you're listening out there, if you're trying to vacation right now even though the end of the summer, please think twice before you go and travel, and if you do travel be Uber cautious because now is not the time to be going out in the world. Moving on. About a layer subjects Neymar has parted with. Nike after thirteen years of collaboration with the sports where product his contract ends August thirty first and Neymar has reportedly become the subject of a bidding war between all of these new. Potential sponsors including Adidas and under armour. Puma have reportedly already agreed to a deal with Neymar. So effective September first Neymar will be a sponsor will be sponsored by Puma and or will be poom latest client in world football. Moving on the final. Part of the segment will be concerning Martin Braithwaite. No Martin Braithwaite was Barcelona's emergency last minute loop hole signing that the club made when the club was suffering a surplus of injuries at the forward position in February. After the end of the winter transfer window Barsha asked Lollygag for an extension for transfer window for an emergency low budget siding, and so bars signed the twenty nine year old Danish winger from Louganis who ended up getting relegated mostly due to the loss of eighth weight and Braithwaite came in to really be a squad player to fill in for dim ballet and Suarez when they got injured at the end of the season. Reportedly Braithwaite is becoming a priority for round Kumon to give more game time to now keep in mind. This is the same manager that told Suarez to take a walk and is forcing Lionel Messi out of his way Barcelona but he has his eyes on Martin Braithwaite potentially the next. Stud at Barcelona than at least a man that's going to take it into the next stage of their era of this club. Now obviously like I said, he was an emergency last resort loopholes signing for Barsa and Braithwaite even have your data to ask the club. For, MRIs number ten should messy leave the club the summer. Martin Eighth Way hasn't even spent half a season at this clogged. He's already asking for the club to give him the the number that represented Ronaldinho and Messi in the past two stints of the number. He's played eleven. Games were Barcelona scored two goals and he has asked for the number ten should messy leave and gave him response that really. Is Probably. The best thing you say about this club in the past few months saying that Braithwaite would relieve sooner than Messi would. There's no hope for break to get the number ten now. Honestly, it's a disgrace to hear that he asked I. Guess Shoot Your Shot is where you can look at it if you're braithwaite but. Out Any, any player on this team right now deserves the number ten, not Suarez Greenman Dion nobody on the team has the stature of the MESSI number ten yet they're better off retiring at the giving it to anybody nonetheless Martin Way the twenty nine year old Danish winger who's played eleven games go two goals for the Catalonian giants no chance. That's for that segment. Coming up after the break we're to talk about transfer rumors talk about the latest sightings talk about the latest gossip circling around world football. doco anywhere. This is your ultimate staffer, everything sports, the golden state media concepts or podcast should I say more from the NFL beat the NBA 'em. It's all in here. Golden State media concepts sport spot cast listen. Now. We are back from our file commercial break. Thank you once again for tuning into the GMC soccer podcast brought to you the GMC podcast network going into the final segment here in Boston Massachusetts US talk about the latest transfer. God's. Parts of the show. So my favorite parts of the summer talking about new players and new editions, new squads around the world for months, and even though this is normally when the treasure went with close in any other season cove in nineteen is extended the transfer window to October. We have plenty of time to talk about even more transfer rumors. So let's get right into it starting with Luis. Suarez. The legendary Uruguay striker by the day has less of a future in the Camp Nou, and there are plenty of clubs vying to compete for his signature including Advantis Athletico Madrid even lester I acts have thrown their hat in the ring for Luis Suarez. You they want to strengthen their course by. Because you may have a very dots exterior campaign ahead of them because only finishing only one point of an intern second-place last season. especially with a new manager with Andrea Bulow who's ever coached matched in his life. Under a pillow immediately, one of his most dire needs is to place the striker position who is which has a vacancy. Now with Gonzalo, eguaveon now terminated his contract with the club and right now bulow fancies Suarez as a good replacement for eguaveon to fill in for events in the short term Suarez is three years old he has injury problems, but what's tireless striker has lost his legs. Fitness and much of his worth and he will demand a hefty salary. He's GonNa Demand Twenty five million dollars per year if he is going to lead Barcelona in the summer, because Juarez is very dead set on staying in Catalunia staying fighting for his spot in the starting eleven or even playing as a backup and playing barnum him accepting a diminished role to stay at the Camp Nou. Nonetheless, the former Golden boot winner in two thousand sixteen has a lot of students from around Europe. Any certainly a name to watch out for because Kumon called Suarez, and told him in less than sixty seconds. The Suarez is no longer wanted in the camp knew that he should seek another club and it his contract may be terminated before the summer ends. Maybe loose whereas has played his last game for the Catalan giants and it would've been eight to defeat to borrow Munich in the Champions League quarter-finals moving on. Speaking about events. Let's talk a little bit because they had been very busy and there been rumored circling across the world about so many players pure the wants to bring in starting with. Edin Gieco the Bosnian striker from Roma. Right. Now, pillow is reportedly ceiling twelve million euro deal with Eddie GIECO. It would be an initial ten, million euros plus two million in bonuses. Now, Rona are willing to let. GIECO go. Clearly if they're only gonNA part for him for twelve million euros but they are seeking an immediate replacement with milk from Napoli as his replacement although Eddin GIECO is one of the best strikers of his generation and. He doesn't get as much attention as LEDA doffs ski or Swartberg Wairoa. He has bagged in the goal is for Roma over the years. He was a big part, of Roma, semi final round of the Champions Twenty eighteen and he's still a very good striker and he would be a very good short term replacement for Hawaiian at you Venice if they do get the deal over the line for them. Event this news moist keen is reportedly keen on a return to Venice Moist. Keyna's is obviously the Italian striker who mood from Uganda to. On a permanent deal last summer but Keane is reportedly struggled to find his fit in England. He's made thirty three appearances with Everton last season. So essentially starting almost all year and scored just two goals in the premier league. But Keita's returned keen is keen on a return to Italy and play for you ventas. Once again, while you, they look to offer Aaron Ramsey in a possible exchange to the Merseyside Club because air. Ramsey as well is one of the all-time gas for this club paying him two hundred fifty. Thousand pounds a week interim on a free transfer looking to off load the unproductive midfielder from Wales possibly in exchange for moist to Comeback Taran an Air Ramsey over to. Merseyside. Pure lows reportedly fan of moist Keane in watts him apart of the squad and a part of the future of dentists. And you they are reportedly seeking a loan deal initially with an option to buy which seems to be a popular option that you are utilizing in this transfer window. Briefly on moist keen, he has been at, you've this for many years and a two, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety had his best season yet playing in seventeen games and scoring seven times mostly off the bench. Buddy is obviously a super sub when he was used by Vectis and feel low certainly was a fan of his watching him play for you. Event is for a number of years and growing with the academy and ending up playing very good season in his file, your Taran, and obviously keen impure low or very ambitious on getting a move back to Toronto and a reunion in you've got this. But you've have sealed the deal in the past few twenty, four hours Weston mckennie. The American midfielder has officially made his move to the Turin giants. It has been announced as initial season-long blown with just four point five, million euros. And option to buy for event it's worth eighteen point five, million euros. West mckinney is only twenty one years old. He already has nineteen caps for the US men's national team, and he has seventy five appearances for shock since two thousand seventeen, and he could be a promising addition to vent this, and it'll be great for the Americans growth as a player especially playing in the same team as Cristiano Renaldo especially as his career dwindles to end what an opportunity for Weston mckennie to grow as a player and to really. Solidify another American talent in the top five European Leagues now you they are still intent on side and cousteau are your from Leon and trying to get Air Ramsey out of the club as well. So whether or not mckinney we see that much playing time this year that's be seen especially pure fantasy in too much. Nonetheless it's a good move for Mackenzie for a player and maybe he'll be surprised if it will be a diamond in the rough for event is this season? Moving on for event. Let's talk about Georgia why now the Dutch midfielder from Liverpool the twenty nine year old is reportedly Ronald Kumons top priority for Barcelona. Now, Kumon has fancied white album as a good replacement for even an academic and. How to midfield who are on the trading block for the Catalan giants reportedly Kumon wanted Vanderbeek from instead who was also a Dutch midfielder but reportedly, he is keen on a move to Manchester United. Serano coup has its sights set on why now look as number one transit priority this summer. and He's already told why now though that Liverpool not to renew his contract to hold out for a potential. Bid From Barcelona to Liverpool. Deal, that has officially crossed. The line is Rodrigue. Oh, going to lease united who have smashed their transfer record with twenty seven, million euro move for Rodrigue Oh Moreno from Valencia leads are gearing up for a return to the top flight of English football with more Syllabi Elsa and formidable attacking core at Leeds United. It's GonNa be fun to watch leads back in the early this year after a sixteen year wait and Rodriguez is. Certainly going to upgrade their attacking corpse although it wasn't expensive fee for a market that really could have been much cheaper. You could talk about Msci batch of y who the Chelsea product on a contract season has been loaned up too many teams in his career and maybe would have been a better fit and more talented player on the less leads splashed the cash for twenty, seven, million euros on Robert Eagle Modano from Valencia. Moving on Gianluigi Dot Luma the twenty one year old. Italian. Goalkeeper in the future of the Italian national team NBC Milan. Chelsea are looking to replace kep up with the Italian from Milan and Chelsea have made Gianluigi dot room of their next top priority in the transfer market. Now, the market would be about fifty million dollar room of given that he is only twenty one and one of the best goalkeepers in the It's going to be difficult for chosen to make that much money even though they have the money, they haven't spent much money because of their transfer bans the last few windows, but it's going to be tough to pay that much money especially when they are still not when they still haven't signed average from Leverkusen yet when the expect fifty million on. Ben Show well. And they already spent money on Keep Zach and team of earner this summer to very expensive summer for Chelsea. But Donald would be the cherry on top. If they replace Kappa with a good goalkeeper, serviceable worldclass goalkeeper, you could say in Gianluigi Ruma. Also talking about daddy vendor who we just talked about earlier briefly in the why now the segment Manchester United have stepped up their interest with reports coming in that there will be a bit coming in for Danny Vanderbeek he has been with the move Manchester United as well as Barcelona. But, Manchester United are looking for depth in the engine room for midfield although their midfield is. The strength of the red devils given that they already have Paul Pogba and Brunner Fernandez and the Manja manage. But Danny Vendor because a young prospect who would really boost and bolstered the midfield corpse at Manchester and Ole is very keen on a move for Danny Vanderbeek, and also it becoming more apparent by the day. That man united are giving up on Jadon Sancho that they're moving on because dormant have set a very high price tag that man are just unwilling to meet and don't have the money to me necessarily. So Danny Vanderbeek. Is becoming man US number one transfer priority now and Jadon Sancho is becoming less and less of a possibility for man you as dormant or holding firm on their price tag. Now with Vanderbeek, he's an exciting talent who held on the fort with Frankie Diong, in the Mitchell that I ax especially during their semifinal run in the Champions League a season ago, and he is still playing at the top of his game and it's certainly promising prospects but Dutch international from. All, the fans are hesitant to believe that man. You have anything to write home about given that they already faltered the Sancho deal and that Sancho manual for reportedly for weeks already agreed to a transfer V and to. Personal terms to a contract to wages. So, it's less likely and fans are much less less fans are having a hard time buying into this transfer because they had their heart set on Sancho and that let them down the worried the same will happen with Danny Vanderbeek. Now, for this deal to cross the line, it will reportedly be worth forty million euros. I would seek in order to give over Vanderbeek to Manchester United. Last transfer of the day talk about Milan? Srinagar. Now, shrink are what are the most talented setbacks in the world but nobody really talks about The Slovenian product twenty, five year, old playing for Inter Milan. But supposedly treated cars fallen out of favor in Milan and needs to leave inter. If he wants to play regular football now it's supposedly he's fallen favor with Antonio Golf Day and called Day has affirmed that he will be manager at Inter next season, which means shrinking car will have less and less time less and less minutes to play regular first-team football. The favourite to land shrink our signature is reportedly Tottenham Hotspur. They are in pole position to lend the twenty five year old Slovenian centreback. Spurs are looking to bolster their back line and replace the departure Yang Tong Tongkin the veteran Belgian defender who has since left Spurs have a big hole centreback. Now, shrink hardwood slot right in a young prospect. A very talented player already would forbid, defy and solidify the back line four Tottenham Hotspur, and there have been discussions of a possible destroyed swap deal between ten Indaba delay dispersed products, the former Leon, engine midfielder, and they would descend on dominate over to enter. and has shredding Kirk come from Milan to London and play. For Spurs, and that move is certainly developing car is almost certain to leave enter the summer and a swap deal would make the most sense although for Spurs, they would probably demand a higher transfer fee given that maybe in Domino's values higher than trinity at this moment. That offer the transfer rumors that are happening around the world right now, and that is unfortunately the end of the show that is all the constant I have for you today.

Caught Offside: Wheel of Football Special

"Offside Chichi to Betty yes. Caught offside from God knows where from an apartment in Brooklyn at a basement closet in Westchester Andrew Bundling. Jj Daddy what's up brother payment. How you how are you doing? This is all I need to apologize to Mason out. I think because last week on the PODCAST I made a my red card and I was and the basic point of my red card to him was essentially to say dude like were a weakened here and you're already going crazy and you're breaking quarantine Like come on man. We're we're faced with like six months seven months eight. Who knows how long we're going to be in this. Come on like get yourself there mentally. That's not good enough. Jj I've now been in quarantine for I don't know probably like six days seven days. I don't even China's runs together and I'm losing it already and I understand why he needed to break free. I got a text message from you. This morning. That was on. The edge is the best way to describe it. You were freaking out freaking out about the thought of having to record this podcast. How would it work and by the way you did want to begin the podcast with this is going to sound a bose? As how would you describe it dodgy as we've ever done we've never done this before no matter what we've had podcast where you've been Ireland or where I've been in South Carolina or Philly like we've done podcast from various parts around the world but we've never done one where neither one of us are in studio and currently neither one of us are allowed to be we've one from the back of a taxi cab in Kiev. Yeah Yeah but this is unchartered territory though where neither one of us are there so all I can say is this is kind of like experimental podcast for us. I know millions of podcast. Do it this way so it can't be that bad. Can't sound that awful. This is how it's done by probably the majority of podcasts. Most podcasts don't have a state of the art studio like what we use. We'll be we'll be fine just know it's going to sound a little bit different for however long we are in quarantine which is a thing that is happening in the world. Right now we are in a quarantine what this is. This is madness. I guess before we really get into like the meat and bones of the podcast. We should just kind of say like what's going on in the world with pertaining to the sport All kinds of reports are coming down daily. there was talk about one of the most hilarious things that. I think I've seen since all this started. Jj was the initial report that law legal wanted to start playing. What like this weekend or last week. It was just the most ridiculous bar that they had set for themselves. Obviously that will not be happening. The League is postponed indefinitely much. Like everything else is right now. The Olympics since we last spoke are also postponed for a year. No surprise there once. The euros were postponed for a year and the writing was on the wall. I understand Tokyo's desire to hold out for as long as possible but we all knew this was coming. It was never going to be sustainable to hold a worldwide global event This close to like the pandemic still being in in the full throes of it so we always knew that was going to be coming. It's a shame I was looking forward to another summer of seeing the US women dominate. Hopefully but we'll have to wait a year I guess the upside of that is potentially Alex. Morgan will be fully back to herself But we'll have to wait and see that you're from now Helping shakeout yeah. I did not hear that are read that report about the League. I don't know where that would come from because right now. Spain is in such dire straits interesting. Sports illustrated have a piece of right. Now of both how the Valencia and Atalanta first leg is like this petri dish for Corona virus of the time. It was just just this disaster or these two masses of fines. Camp together won't going. You know you had developed the fans going to Italy and then coming back again and the disaster that that may have been for the spread of the virus as well. Yeah because those two countries really are kind of at like you said. That's kind of the epicenter of Europe. Right now are Spain in Italy So got to think that a soccer game was kind of like the match. The diffused got lit to set that off throughout Europe and globally as it's kind of depressing but that's really well. We're at yeah. The the article is entitled a Biological Bomb Versus Valencia in Milan linked to accelerate in corona virus. Break a really even spoke about the madness of athletic fans. I mean. It didn't seem Matt time although we were beginning to see more and more of just how quickly this thing can spread but you know the three and a half thousand already finds that went to Anfield. I mean that just seems like craziness of the way on a person on a person of no because I didn't want to talk about this sought the weekend myself from my girlfriend we. We haven't been feeling well for four or five days and I spoke to a doctor who is in our building and like it's very different to get tests unless you're unless you're basically unable to walk onto the weight of your own lungs then. You're not getting a test. But he said considering the time line in the symptoms he said that we will be diagnosed now as presumptive covert and. So we've been dealing with for the past week or so and let me tell Ya. Even as a young person as thing is no joke Andrew. It's I've never felt so fatigued in my life. I've never felt so many aches and pains shoes. I got what Rudy Joubert. The the basketball player God is well. I've lost my sense of smell and taste. I think it's coming back but plankton or so far. I haven't had like the the the terrible affects in the lungs body. I mean my i. It's flattened my girlfriend. I flattened me and I feel like the last couple of days Motive will apparently the worst of it is supposed to be in the first few days so hopefully once you get through that which it sounds like you have. Hopefully you're you'll be back to yourself soon. It off but yet but even even like even even doing things that people have been contacting me. You know the way. It'd be very active on on social media on twitter and things like that and I just have an inbox of stole from people that I haven't got back because I just haven't had the energy and I've been building up to this all day. I took a nap about an hour ago. just so just so it'd be fresh for put you can't mess with this thing. It's it's serious it really is. I'll tell you what man should we let's do it? We've got no in the midst of all this. Like just like mock. We have what I think will be a fun podcast for you. Because obviously there's not games to really analyze right now so we have gone and I wasn't allowed back into the building to get our wheel which was sad because it was. I could see it in the window looking at me. It was it was. It was just like very sullen of sight. So what I've done is in in my basement here. I have actually found a new wheel for us to still be able to play wheel of football. That's amazing Andrew. I do of own question. Did you tell stacy the guard? We hired to spin the wheel that she's no longer needed. Who Stacey the girl that spins the wheel like? Oh like our Vanna white type yeah. We hired her last year. Oh my God stacy still in the studio. Well she'll be in quarantine good Lord so I have my wheel in front of me now. Jj and We're going to spend it five. Times should be fun because these are a lot of the topics that I put in the wheel. Tonight are Kinda like outside the box. Cool like should should sponsored fun conversation. You ready for the first then go all right here we go. I spin of the wheel and it lands on EP L. P. O. D. Do you know that means player of the decade right? Jj the EPL player of the decade. He hardly I. Yeah we we never really talked about this when the when the teens came to To a close we never really did any kind of retrospective look back at the last ten years so. I'm glad that this came up because I feel like we owe it to the people to at least say who we think are player of the decade was can go. I You may because I have multiple answers of course of course you Sergio Guero. I would hope that. That's one of your multiple answers. Although you're an outside the box thinker. I'm sure you have some kind of like second. Keeper for born myth like Archer Boras or something is probably Your choice now. I went with Sergio Guero. Jj look. I don't really need to site a lot of reasons why we have. We been watching the league last ten years. He's clearly awesome But I'll take this from football. Three six five. They said no player has won more primarily titles this decade no player has won more primarily player of the month awards This or any decade. No player has scored more permanently. Patrick's this or any decades has nine consecutive campaigns of scoring double figures that is one off of Frank. Lampard's overall record for that category. He's fourth all time in goals. The averages just over twenty per season which is incredible. And I'm not including this season yet Is that average might come down. He's at like twenty point five goals per season which is incredible He's got sixteen. I think so far this year. So maybe that average comes down but I still think it would keep them just above the twenty mark but Yeah Sergio Guero scored God knows how many big goals he scored. Maybe the biggest goal in the history of the League so I feel I feel pretty. I feel this is a safe choice. I didn't really. I didn't really extend myself here. This was kind of the obvious answer. I think while it's interesting Andrew because the BBC did a poll in December trying to sort out this team of the decade etc and Sergio Guerra won the actual vote. Oh by some distance so I mean I have. No idea is thinking about this today. By the way this is my least favorite of those Of the great questions you have on the wheel for this podcast. I mean I've actually very initial with someone picking Sergio Aguayo I honestly fee considering where he came from the obscurity from which you came from and the seasons that he's had since I think in goal Kante is someone as well who can be rightly claim. Our I suppose he doesn't do the things that Joel Guero does he doesn't he you know he wouldn't. I don't hate. I don't hate that answer but if you look. He's the first player to achieve the distinction of winning successive titles. With different clubs. You know and if you look at the impact he made on Leicester Team and then to be sold to Chelsea and do the exact same thing again and in the process become fair player of the year. I just think that's amazing. I was also looking. Not someone like David Silva throat the period and how important he was to Manchester City. And my other choice. I know it was maybe towards the star of the decade anyway gone from English football by twenty fourteen Luis Suarez particularly the thirteen fourteen season with Liverpool thirty one goals and seventeen assists and not season and he was good from the minute. He joined the Cup I thought he was unbelievable. It was ashamed that he didn't do another season in England certainly shampoo for Liverpool put. Now I have no problem with Sergio Guerrero I would still I would maybe go towards and go. Kante without amazing crazy. Lester primarily Gwynne that nobody saw coming and then for him to be sold on to have like zero time needed to fit in Chelsea goal and win the competition again and the player of the year. Maybe maybe I'm going to contact for me. That's fair I don't WanNa leave this spin though without at least mentioning Eden Hazard. 'cause I think you know if you're going to talk about Luis Suarez has our did it in the league longer over a more extended period of time. I would sit. Yeah Hazard as well as we've all had here really one strange year but I think that's I think we know him well enough to know that that was an outlier down. I'm all right with that. You WANT TO ARGUE. But you don't have the energy is what's happened. Well Andrew. I'm here and that's the most important thing. All right you ready for another spin. I know you hated that much. It was like pulling teeth. All right here we go I got my wheel and I will stay in it. Oh very topical very controversial. It came up on playing all thirty eight. You know that means that means that the Premier League season will be finished Andrew. So that's what they're saying. I'm reading from Mark Ogden. Jj who says sources told ESPN that there is hope within the English gained fixtures could resume in early. May I would not hold your breath for that. Although it is likely that those would be played behind closed doors in a joint statement the F. as rules and regulations state This is a joint statement From the FAA the Premier League all different governing bodies of sport in England this f.a.s.t rules and regulations state that the season shelf terminate not later than the June one and each competition shall within the limits laid down by the FAA determined the length of its own plank season however the FAA's board has agreed for this limit to be extended indefinitely for the two thousand nineteen twenty season in relation to professional football. Additionally we have collectively agreed that the professional game in England will be further postponed until no earlier than April thirtieth. So the fact that they have already declared that this is going to go beyond June first. And they're saying now that no matter what they are going under the. I guess the assumption here that they're gonNA play all thirty eight games regardless of where that takes us to in the end. You like it. I think it's absolutely essential that the season is finished. Like you can't have an incomplete season. I think is very important for the for the game and even for the psyche of fines that they can. They can look forward to look. We've got this amount of games left them. We're GONNA finish this season out on hopefully when we get out of this thing. It's going to be such an joys event. Now listen to Gary Neville speaking about how that might look and how many games but may take if you know. There's the worry that with the way. This coronavirus is developing a good chance. That it's going to crash into next season or what will be the demarcation point for the start of next season? Which will impact next season? They'll have to be some kind of rejig of how next season's formulated boss. The idea that we finished with this season Gary Neville talked about a festival of football where they may be running the Games off in. I suppose in a more rapid tournament style fashion. Maybe that happens whatever the disease and needs to be finished. Football is pirates of our. You know it's part of our calendar. Really it's it's we formulate our our years as fines on our seas. Let me ask you so. Let me ask you a question. So let's say we're working on total hypotheticals. Let's say the season cancer. Let's say twenty twenty as a as a calendar year is is just gone is just like a loss year where nothing happens. So let's say the earliest that they're able to start playing is call January first of twenty twenty one. So how will like? How will these calendars work? Will they just? Has there been enough time where they would feel like time off for players where they would feel comfortable finishing out this season and then pretty much like may say what take a small break two week break and then just start the next season. Kinda just like one right on top of the other and then and then what though have some kind of break during euros I just. I'm very confused. I like it like I think it's the right move to to make sure they complete the season. I I really think it's the right decision that they're coming to. But I don't know what this does to the the calendar moving forward from an EP L. Perspective but again we're we're guessing here. Andre were. Were assuming like we don't know when is we don't know when the acceptable safe point to go back? Playing football will be. We don't know when that will be there could be at the end of the summer a Kobe. Much like your speculate and it could be much much later than that I would. I would almost tend to agree with that but I don't know but I do know that. The finality and the closure of having season finish does on the fact that they're focusing on that. I think is a good thing I think so too. I think it's the right move. I certainly think we're deciding between something like that or Karren Brady saying that the season should be nullified. I mean come on. It's you just have to fall on the side of. Let's finish this thing we started. Let's finish it like I don't know to me the the only option that doesn't work if they want to be creative and try like some crazy stuff to determine relegation or whatever when we come back like. I'm way more on board with experimentation time then I am with nullifying the whole season. That can't happen. Do you know what I love about you. Sweet Naive Andrew. You genuinely think that Karren Brady had any interest in in finding a solution other than to find a way to keep West Ham united in the Premier League again stop. Please move on next spin here. We go and Oh yes. I like this question as you can tell from my enthusiastic reaction came up on a game on repeat which means So it's the quarantine if you've grown tired of whatever netflix shows. You've been watching the idea. Is You have to watch one game every day during this quarantine. But the caveat is it's a game that you can pick. So what are you choosing one game every single day that you're in this quarantine? I can't do one game. That's ridiculous I've picked four games to liberal game. Well all right but if you're if you're GONNA give me one game right. This is my one game but then allow me to go on and tell you the other games will also be watching on repeat so the the one I have. I've arrived at Liverpool for Borussia. Dortmund three it before 2016 at Anfield Dejean. That's right the day. That dejean announce the world that he was indeed the greatest bear ever. We'll go on to prove that in two thousand eighteen as one of the. The second game is Manchester. United one Liverpool four Saturday march fourteen. Two thousand nine Yugoslavia. And then I went to an international flavor Yugoslavia three Spain for from Europe two thousand. I was the final group game in their group on Spain A one again. That was just unbelievable. Spam were actually scored two goals in time added on at the end of the ninety unbelievable and they were led from the center of the park by a certain Joseph Pep Guardiola on the other game that I that came back into into sharp. Focus for me when thinking about this. Was that amazing game. I like to call it. The rule of Jan Vertongen But it was Belgium free Japan to from work of twenty what to bring a game. That was wow. That's that's a good choice. That's a good choice so this was actually the easiest question for me of all the questions we had. Because Tottenham axe second-leg Is is an utter no brainer for me? I also consider Tottenham Man City second-leg unless Champions League and I wanted to go back a little bit to two thousand eight the Even though they didn't win the four four between Tottenham and Arsenal is one of my all time favorite games with just the because I feel like it for a gain if you're going to have to watch a game every day it can't be. I was thinking about USA Algeria but like not to say that there wasn't action but like what was what made that game so tense was like it. They needed the result. Nothing happened really during the game. It caused attention to build until the goal scored. But if I'M GONNA watch a game every single day. I need a lot of action. So four four. Spurs arsenal felt like that fit the bill I considered. I wanted to consider USA one and if I was going to throw the USA. Algeria went out the original dose of Cerro USA Mexico in the two thousand two World Cup. But now let me so. This question was too easy for you and I so let me. Let me add a caveat. That makes a little bit more difficult While you actually already kind of answered it the caveat was going to be. It can't be a team that you support. But you kind of did that with your Spain Yugoslavia a my Belgium Japan. Yes so so let me give you mine. I would consider man city. Qpr On the final day this season it was just such an epic game. I could watch that. Just I don't know historic And then my what. Well I just wanted to pick you up in that city. We're supposed to run away with that game. Does that change? But they did not change the dynamic for you. Yeah I suppose score twice in stoppage time like it was crazy. Now you're right you're all right well whatever. It doesn't matter it's all opinion. You can't tell me my opinion is wrong. It's what I want to watch. I'm not going to force you to watch the other one that I think ultimately would pick was the game that spawned the Ray Hudson game for us Ray Hudson jeopardy or whatever it was that we played that day. The two thousand seventeen April twenty third L. classical ravaged rid at Barcelona. The three to Messi scored the winner deep in stoppage time. It's one of the best honestly the last ten years. I think it's one of the best games that I've seen. Just the quality of play that day from both teams round dread. I think I think shots were something. Like twenty two eighteen so many chances every goal was a great goal in that game. I think that might be the one that I go with. If it's a team that I that I'm not allowed to support. That was a great game and it spawned and even better game show which even ray listened to and seemed to enjoy. Yeah yeah being. Sports sent us a rate Edson Button. You've seen it and I have it at my desk where they sent us you know like staples has the easy button from when they're the ad of that was easy like we're would hit a button at staples. It just said that. That was easy. Well being sports made Array Hudson buttons. Like that where they sent one to us. I guess after they heard the segment where you just. It's a picture of his face screaming. And You Punch the button. And it's some kind of like Ray Hudson ISM Sadly that also been left behind with our other wheel said the most fun about that whole railroads in game. Andrew was Ray. Houghton himself tweeting because somebody obviously tweeted a link Adam on any tweeted. The two boys just have a good laugh. Yeah he took an interest in the spirit of which it was intended. Yes but if you remember correctly I simulated in a scenario where Phil. Shane was in a bar chatting opened. Lady unrated couldn't let him have his moments. He just interrupts GOIN- Since Sean. No subtlety with Ray in the room as your wingmen ready the next Ben. Go here we go. We got two left failed transfers. Alright this category being give me a transfer that wound up not working but like one. That's still surprises you to the state like one that you might have come on our pre-season show and said that's GonNa work and by the end of the year. You're considering it one of the worst transfers of the season android gone with Juan Sebastian Veron. I joined Manchester United in two thousand and two on. It's funny because Real Ferdinand in these quarantine times he did and instagram live on. Somebody must have asked him about it because the myrrh picked up the quotes so I was always curious as to as to why it didn't work. I think I knew it didn't work out in that there was too many good united midfielder's at the time if you look at that. United midfielder was in the white positions. There was Beckham and there was gigs. And then in the center you had keen schools both and then they signed Juan Sebastian Veron. So something's gotta given their now. This is what Rio Ferdinand said a boat Veron. He was an unbelievable player. Great Passer the only thing. The only thing I think that killed him was Roy. Keane was probably a bit more of dominant personality and was picking up the ball in his positions. You have to remember. Veron came from lassio on Parma. Where he was the man man. The whole game went through him he came to united. That's what Roy Keane did. King came and got it off. The defenders pass it through to the midfielders and attackers and got in positions and was very vocal like. Yeah Gimme the ball. GimMe the ball out of respect. Probably Savage said. I let Roy keep doing that but several was an amazing talent. I honestly think without Roy Keane there. You might have flourished and Manchester United Shirt. I think Roy. Keane was this problem and it wasn't Roy Keane Fault. It's just not. His personality was bigger. A more overpowering. I thought that was really. That was Kinda interesting because people forget. Just how good king was at that time and he did dominate Games. And that's all rights in that wants a bastion. Probably at a better range of passing. Then Keane although some people would argue that he was probably a skillful technical passer than King. But like if you're not on the ball it doesn't really matter. Andrew that's signing lasted one season. It went so badly that united were quite happy to offload. Ma- quite happy is not the return but they offloaded him to one of their rivals. Chelsea at in two thousand and three they sold Veron they got. They got rid of them. And it also spawned one of the Fergie Lines and I've got to be careful not to swear here. Always so during the during a press conference where things are starting to go on the turn for verizon because he started quite well for united and then it. Kinda just drifted away any wasn't in the team and and when he wasn't the team he wasn't having a great impact on so journalists accompanied journalists kept questioning furry. Furry he got very upset about this. A foggy said came out with the classic line. It goes one Sebastian. Veron is one of the greatest players in the world and you're just F ING idiots. And then he sold rid of that year. I mean yeah I mean I was never afraid to take action if things weren't working out but I just thought it was so funny. Launched this defensive them and then sells them at the end of the season. But yeah that's one of those where I am delighted as liberal find. It didn't work because if there was a way to make a schools king and Veron midfield sick together. That would have been devastating. There were devastating as it was. Let's see here so I actually have a couple Taking a page out of your book the first one. I'll be curious for you to weigh in on because it involves your team. I don't know I was really surprised that Christian Ben Tech at Liverpool didn't work. I thought he was great. I really both for Crystal Palace for Belgium. Ten goals in forty two appearances at Liverpool I mean look. He scored that one incredible goal against Manchester United. But that was that's all he did and it just always surprised me that he was like. I just kept thinking okay. Maybe he just needs time to acclimate and just kept waiting and waiting and then he was gone. Yeah and but did you ever think that Christian Bentayga was going to be a fit Friday? The Way Brendan Rodgers played or subsequently Jurgen klopp. Why not which line I'm asking? Why not well first of all if we take it from the point of view of Rogers teams Rogers teams would have. He was an old classic center. Forwards on Rogers teams possible to death. So what's he doing when he doesn't have the ball? He didn't link the play particularly well. He didn't do any of those things. So that was a square peg in a round hole. And also say say. There's a game in which Brandon Rogers wanted to press on which would then you know subsequently be something under Jurgen klopp. You would have to do then. Techy was not that kind of player Andrew. He was not capable of doing those things. Surprise me then. I also have Fernando Torres from Liverpool to Chelsea simply. Because it's kind of a cliche answer but simply because I don't know how anyone could foresee a guy going from maybe the best player at his position in the League to what he then became at Chelsea where he never registered double digit goals in the Premier League. Again after making that move. And God. I mean you remember how lethal he was at Liverpool and then I have one more here unless you wanted to weigh in on that one. I have to go in and that one as well if you if you listen to. Jamie read not Jimmy Redknapp. Jimmy Caraher talk about say his last eighteen months at Anfield he Quite apart from the fact that he wanted to leave the club he didn't want to be at Liverpool anymore. That was definitely affect in his demeanor on the way he acted around the training ground cower her reckons that he was in decline under that the toll of injuries that he'd had over the past few years and let's not forget it was not an injury free time for him at Liverpool and that he felt that by the time he got Chelsea is best His peak seasons were weather behind him. Unless at least I did want to take one from outside of the League. I went to La Liga. Count me as somebody who after watching the two thousand fourteen World Cup bought? The Hamas Rodriguez hype. And that's not to say that he's not a good player because I think he has shown moments that he is but it has not worked for him at Real Madrid started well. His first season thirteen goals and thirteen assists in his first year with the club but then he's never been able to replicate that sense whether it's been through injury or whether it's been through for whatever reason him just not being able to lock down a consistent first team place on that squad. Yeah it's a tough squad to break into. But I always thought that he was of a level where he could only seven appearances. This season seems like he wants out badly And for whatever reason around Madrid has been slow to sell? He did have his loan with Byron Munich for a couple of seasons which was okay But that's one after watching that World Cup I really I got sucked in. And maybe that's kind of like the fool's gold sometimes other World Cup but he was great before that World Cup Monaco. So I don't know that's one that for whatever reason didn't work out to this day kind of surprises me that it never collect. Yeah I never as big as there's no odia talented. I guess he's just been kind of searching for a hormone successfully and You know when I guess when Munich didn't really WanNa push on with the project that that was another blow to his career all right one more spin here we go okay last one and it lands on Hollywood producer. I could see you liking this one. All right. That means this. Give me a soccer subject that to the best of your knowledge No Book or movie has been made about yet that you think would make for a great book or movie. My girlfriend suggested this today because when I was talking I was kind of bouncing things offer and see what she thought and she said Greece. Winning Euro two thousand four and is like I don't think you know I'm sure there's been a book about it but I don't think there has been a movie during a boat it and I think it's Prime Hollywood material Andrew. I went back and I read a couple of things surrounding that tournament again for myself and I read a piece Roy Smith used to write for us for. Espn before he went to New York Times he kind of did a retrospective of your two thousand and four. And did you know? Andrew Greece hadn't won a game at any major tournament. Ever and that Auto Rate Auto Ray Hyogo going into euro. Two Thousand Four. He basically says a very modest. Am He said guys? Let's try him win one game. Let's not if we if we win one game. We will have achieved arm and for this tournament. We can be very pleased with ourselves. We obviously don't want to get hammered and the other games but let's just win one game. And what do they do? They won their first game. Two one against the Horse Portugal which was basically the EPI center. The peak of Portugal's Golden Era Tame because some of those players were going to be too old when the next cycle came round. Chris you know. Cristiano Renaldo was obviously young at the time so this was like the the peak moment for Portuguese. Football and still Greece found a way to win. I forgotten some of the winds they had in that tournament. Andrew they went on then they beat France. And this was the France of peace only Lizarazu teary on read and Zinzan went on a beat them. And then you think okay. Well who did they play then in the semi final? They played the Czech Republic again another team that would never reach those heights again. That was the Czech Republic's Golden Era Thomas and all those guys etc and then they go to the final to be Portugal. You'd think it can't happen again. There's no way they'll beat the host twice in the one tournament and they went and did it. Now they were the most hated Cinderella Story. I can ever remember because every think piece that was written after that tournament was how Greece represent the decline of the European Games. And what can we? What can we do to rest? Football from the grasp of the Greeks teams like them. But there's just a really Grizz film there and I would be trepidation about handing such a thing over to the to Hollywood executives. Because that's be honest they'd make them play the most unbelievable sexy football and totally rewrite that tournament. An greets euro two thousand four. Greece won the European Championships Andrew. What's amazing that's pretty good Let's see I brought it back stateside actually. Jj I went with. I have a couple here. I think this kind of just happened and tells me there might be a book or documentary. Something about it coming down the pike but the whole saved the crew movement. I don't know anytime that like you feel like a fan base. We're so conditioned to believe that fans don't really have a say in sport and it felt like this was actually a moment in American sports where the Voice of the fan actually helped a club in its city. I just think that's such a cool story and I it's a story that I hope gets told and I'm sure it will because it seems like it's just kind of like made for that sort of thing and then I also wouldn't mind a movie about Chuck Blazer don't feel like he's probably one of the most interesting characters in the history of American soccer everything from his apartment for his cats to basically I mean he became like the Guy who turned right. Who helped bring down fica like he became an informant? I mean when you don't pay your taxes Andrew. That's generally what tends to happen. It's like you cooperate with the feds are while you do jail time yourself. And he did. He ended up but he did so much more than that. And that's why he's his is such a complicated legacy I'm white. We'll be such an amazing film. The modern day CONCACAF as we know it on. Us Soccer as we know it even mls that all came from people came blazer like he just some like some Weirdo. Living IN OUR NEW YORK. He was a power to the firmament of North American soccer. I mean he came up with the idea that you know of the Gold Cup. It was it was his idea. He saw something in soccer way before anybody else did like look did he. Feathers on Nast with the money sure definitely did did he pays taxes properly. He did not but at the same time. We don't have a lot of the things that we've taken a staple in the North American game with razor. Who plays him? I would say John Goodman. I'm curious you have one. You're stealing from me. We had this conversation before Goodman. Yeah I don't remember that all right. Good another Heavy set. I don't remember that well. Yeah he's done he's perfect. Perfect for Can I go to what I wanted to go back? Real quick to the one. Where if we had to watch a game on repeat for the rest of the quarantine which one would choose. Can I do the opposite of that? If you were being tortured and had to watch a game every day that you just like that you hated what would it be? Oh my God. It would be Republic of Ireland verses Egypt the second game of the Italian Ninety World Cup. That was just absolute brutality. So awful blazing hot day in the middle of it was I think it was in Palermo. Like in the middle of the day an Ireland just played wretchedly and the Egyptians were just happy to get a point it was known as absolutely brutal on indeed probably. The final of that tournament was pretty awful to either of those. Oh my God terrible. You don't hear many many positive things said about that tournament and you look for things beyond football you look at the soundtrack you look at the fact that it was the first time that Ireland had qualified for World Cup for me and it introduced me to the words. Game was the first World Cup that I was conscious of. But you're right. It was if you took I suppose. England did well and Cameroon. We're kind of a phone watch from Africa otherwise it was. Yeah it was. It was tough to watch and it was the World Cup that changed the World Cup's Andrew. After that tournament. They decided look this whole idea of passing the ball back to the goal keeper him bouncing it around the box rolling out. Pass back to the ball goalkeeper. I mean to kill Games. Think about that. Think about what what would happen to the game. If you re introduced that to football right now does the other way if your answer is not. Usa Trinidad and then you're just wrong. I'm sorry there's an objective answer to this question and you you. You didn't get it right and I feel bad for you know. Everyone wants me to stop talking about that game. So will that's the for. That's for a reason because it's the game that we shall not speak of but it would be torture us to be forced to watch on a daily basis.

Told me none of the submission so I'm going to be thinking completely on my feet here while no you were so stressed earlier. I didn't want to burden you with anything related so I kept it from you. Let's start off with some emails. This is from Kevin Smith. Hi Guys Love The podcast. I'm a site listener. Who almost never reaches out but nevertheless precinct appreciates all that you do. I just tweeted a condensed version of this until I found the email address. I was struck last week when you were talking about players that low World War One. H was like two weeks. You know who? Who Will you destroy a James Michener? That's because it's a comment. I make of Harry Wilson from Bournemouth. Every time I see that guy looks like he stepped out of World War. One photo and I thought about that for a second. That's probably true. He looks like he's just being drafted and someone's just shouted at them you boy. What are you doing? Why saw a member of the Kings riflemen no? You're not you're too young. Yeah my main purpose of this email is to ask you for your discussion on the fairness of CONCACAF World Cup. Twenty twenty two qualifying as a Canadian. I'm excited that we have the best team in years. One good enough to challenge the heck's however World Cup qualification was reduced to simply deciding the heck's based on fever rankings with Canada and seven behind El Salvador. Our chances don't seem good but it seems unfair that we don't have a chance. The fee for rankings are notoriously unreliable. There's no good reason why Canada who reached the quarter-finals. The two thousand Nineteen Gold Cup are behind El Salvador. Who Fed at the group stage we also beat USA for the first time in twenty eight years but that didn't count for much account. Belief is not requiring concacaf to do a full qualification giving everyone from Mexico to Montserrat. A fair shot using the fee for ranking seems like handpicking the usual favorites leaving teams like Canada and Panama. Out in the cold with little voice to do anything about this I agree with everybody said I hate. We talked about this when when CONCACAF made the change. I hate it because we always say. The rankings are flawed. It's how can this be the system? We had meritocracy in place and it feels like they've just done away with the night. I feel terrible for Canadian fans because you do have a good team and I don't know if it's a symbol allow you to get to the World Cup. Well no the argument. That con- GAFF with throwback. Is that all well. The Nation's League is a ranked tournament in which you can improve your ranking to put yourself in the frame to become to be to be in the in the group that will ultimately are hopefully get you to qualify for the World Cup. But I don't like the new system either I think it's way too towards the bigger sides and I'm not sure I'm not sure they needed to change that but they did look having. We've talked about it several times. I actually think Canada should be at the they should be in. The the qualification mix proper on that they shouldn't have to jump through hoops to try and get to this World Cup and I think they're good enough to but Yeah that's not gonNA against can't change midstream. No Right NO DOUBT. This is the way it is. It's it's unfortunate this is from Rod Murphy. Lovely email that I think my chair. Everyone dear Andrew on Jayjay being with you sense to twenty thirteen fourteen school year and still myself for not taking a loan in order to have been present in Manhattan for the Champions League. Final Watch party if only to have been among those who stood you around as a way of saying thanks for all the joy you have given me a moment ago. I heard you sign off with the rose.

We all love for the sake of your own warts and all friendship which you have shared with us on an order to preserve the future of rap battles yet own waged. Keep the pod rolling. I won't hereby promise to listen as you dig up former players to interview as you talked to writers like Franklin for about the impact of our game on global culture as you investigate the messiah method or discover what drives the most successful club highschool and college programs. Please find a way your way. Anyway which way to continue convening community of listeners. You have created. We were up against it in this war against Kobe.

May the good Lord keep you and your safe thank you for all the hours of Provocation Entertainment Enlightenment and Fellowship. Very Grateful Yours Rod Murphy East Lansing Michigan. Let me tell you something about Rod. Rod is not blowing smoke when he says he's been with us from the two thousand thirteen twenty fourteen season. He certainly highs and more than that. Andrea Rod is a purveyor of the Lost Art of the handwritten letter. He sent me a beautiful handwritten letter last year. On of course being the enormous scumbag that I am I have not replied and it is to my arnold embarrassment. Not a good guy. Not a good guy does a very nice letter. No bad guy but not lovely. Thank you rod and stay safe pays Joel Harrison. Quite listening to the last pod Grit despite no football. My wife overheard you guys asking for Games in the past matter and she said they can do hand of God. Maradonna our our Wednesday. Dan Get book which means headbutted the background to this request is that she hates. You guys cuss when she wants to listen to music in the car. I'm playing you guys. Every time she hears your guys intro. She rolls her eyes. I think we are. I think we are converting her slowly so him asking that you give her a show on. So one over suggestions to the conversation can be completed. those are great. Joel wanted when when his country Jamaica qualified in one thousand nine hundred s but he wants to make his wife Smile. Those are good ones that we could do her. Name's Caz by the way so hello to Yukos's we're sorry that you don't get to listen to Madonna are whoever you're into. I don't even know what year is. Sorry sorry sorry you don't get to listen to do a leaper or someone like that. My God I saved myself there. Yeah so so Joel. We will make an attempt to to keep Kaz happy by the way people are sending in lots and lots of suggestions for our time machine where we do a cough side. Emergency podcast on a game from way back in the day on. We're getting some really good some really good submissions of ones. That are very doable. And some not so good ones on. Here's Liam Cross barreling into the conversation with a not so good idea. Actually that's a bit unfair. This is probably a great idea. But I'm I think it might be tricky to do. Hey Lads on the last pod you guys asked for submissions for older games to cover on emergency podcast. I would like to throw in my submission in the form of the United States. V England match up during the Nineteen Fifty World Cup. Can we do it in? Old-timey announcer voices all. Yeah we can. How WOULD WE How how does your old timey voice announcer voice sound well? The boys in blue have really been stunned. The boys in white today. That's what victory for the Yankees as they as they defeat. Those those Tuffy English Uncle Sam will certainly be happy with this one. They'll be kisses from all the beautiful women when they return with this victory. That sounds like a really enjoyable. Listen it might be. It'll have to be slightly of the era so slightly sexist as well. That's the route and you want to go with it interesting. Andrew was the one thousand nine Hundred Ninety S. It's not the route I want to go with us not in the current climate. I don't think even the humor would be found in that. Maybe maybe tricky to find testimony from those who were in attendance it might be tricky Liam. Yeah but how can we ignore? One of the tournament's biggest shocks plus it would be a coup history lesson. Thank you both for powering and putting out the podcast during a confusing and actress time. I hope you were both well as we hope you are too Liam and the PS. Forgive me if I'm late. Hannity my submission. Time is a bit confusing right now. We know what you mean but look what we're going to do is we're going to try and put them together as many as as we can. Do you know what's front of the queue right now. Andrea for our throwback podcast know. What the two thousand nine Confederations Cup semifinal vs spin. Yes one of my all time. Favorite Games the Gucci on the game. Yes yes yes. Jay Demerit were so good. I can't wait to talk about how great they were. Is that it. That is well because the mailbox is being dominated basically by entries for our emergency podcast back in time westward extravaganza. So yeah. That's the that's the mailbox for now. So you told me you have a critic's corner is that accurate that is accurate. Okay let me do something right now because even though we're not in our studio I think I can just think hard enough if I just will it to critics corner with JJ to vent this. Podcast is reaching new levels of tackle. Oh my God this is one by Okay. You can stop the music notes enough. This is just stop. Thank you this. One is suggested by our listeners. So the English game is a six part series. That has dropped on Netflix. And it's by Julian fellowes creator of Downton Abbey Andrew. I gotta ask you. Don't inabe American kind of person. Never seen it no widely popular. I've never watched today either but I did today. Watch the first episode of the English game. Andrew we begin our tail in the early eighties as association. Football Co defied and rules set by the old Etonians is under challenge as the preserve of the gentleman by the emergence of teams like Darwin. A working class side put together by Mu Workers from Lancashire Teams in the quarterfinal of the FA Cup and changes in the air. As Darwin's owner has drafted himself to players from Scotland who a totally transformed view of the game and the whiff of paid involvement so this is based on actual events through events the formation of the professional game England in Britain rather as we know unloved. Today it all started. Then it's interesting too. Is this a good show? I'm not sure certainly out there but I actually enjoyed it first of all in this kind of content wasteland. You know you're going to embrace anything new. That comes across your screen. I gotta say did ENJOY EPISODE ONE AND I. I'm very careful about spoiler here. But it's this real kind of clash of cultures on anyone who watch Downton Abbey Downton Abbey is basically the English class. Revolu not the revolution but the they have the have nots of English society and all within this kind of one micro space call down Tanabe and this is kind of looking at class. Warfare are not class warfare but basically the game as as as understood by the gentleman of the era is being taken over by the working class and this is kind of the beginning of that moment the beginning of that movement. And there's a there's a couple of things I find curious about. The game are about this this this episode that? I've watched one of the things that I find really interesting is first of all. Is The kit that they wear Andrew so in the eighteen eighties. It's they they try and I think they've done a fairly good job of representing what the jerseys would've looked like the football boots of the time. Are there basically like boots you're getting Williamsburg where where. Yeah no no. It's I found that curious because I'm like how could they possibly play in this but they obviously did join the time. There is another power to it that I find a bit problematic and I'm wondering if other people notice this too so the Scottish player who's being paid by the owner of the mill in Darwin. He came down from Patrick to play and basically is being paid to play so that they can win the FA Cup and this is against the rules because it's still very much an amateur game at this point and this is the kind of the first move towards professionalism but Andrew. He looks as if he's got moves that were not of the time like when he cuts the ball. It looks like somebody from the radio will not quite like Ronaldinho. We'll get him later by the way but not quite like Ronaldinho but so I think of like who were the WHO were. The first wing wizards are who were the first dribblers in the English game. So you're thinking the nineteen forties and fifties where Tom Finney answer Stanley Matthews. And even the way they dribbled was very kind of rigid and then as we move forward when George best started doing and doing what he was doing an Pele. Were doing what they were doing. It was so mind blowing because nobody else was doing it. We've never seen anybody move with the hips. Like this drop. The shoulder cut from left to right and then by the time we got the Jinchi Johnston of Celtic in the in the nineteen seventies. It had moved on a whole `nother direction and I'm watching this guy and I'm like no come on. You've made him too good and that's a fit of flow for someone like me if this is what critics corner has become. I don't know if we can continue doing it. I mean that was just a ten minute diatribe to basically get around to saying. I'm not sure if you should watch this show no you. Should I say in the hours ago and the content landscape that we have right now which is a barren wasteland? Andrew you should watch as much football content as possible by. Do you want to hear what really annoyed me am? I allowed this on. This is a different thing so I'm watching. I'm watching succession right now. And this is not a spoiler. Because it's not it's not Germane to the the main story but basically the log in Roy is the big media figure whose originally from Scotland and has taken over right wing news in America and started this enormous company. That's the basic premise of succession and the episode. That I watched last night. It absolutely annoyed me so much. He goes back to Scotland to be honored by his local community from Wednesday emerged fifty sixty years ago and his son born in America in his early thirties. A rich brash buys him his favorite football club hearts so he comes over to him at the reception and he goes dad. I bought you a part of your favorite team and he goes. Who did you buy and he goes? I bought you. Hearts hearts aren't my favorite team. It's HIBS and I'm like I'm like you see I cannot tell you how got under my skin. That and I got under his skin and he goes Logan Roy son goes. Are you sure your favorite team and he freaks out of course? I know my favorite team that I've been support for fifty years and it annoyed me so much but anyway that is just an add on to the critics are not as more soccer content within a succession lookout for that as we go through these chase and times. Yeah the English Game Julian fellowes. Don't think it's I don't think it's going to be a classic but it's worth worker. Watch red card. Can I go I yes all right? I'M GONNA get mine to assess fabric asks for welching on a massive bet. Basically he just revealed the story from when he was at Chelsea where he was practicing penalties after training one day and he I Guess Bet Willie Kaba Gyro. Who was a net that he would not be able to save his only Fabra? Gase was so confident of this that he said he would buy Cobb aero a range rover if he managed to keep the penalty out and now fabric is quoted as saying unfortunately for me. He saved it in front of the whole team. So you can imagine how it went. I went from feeling the most confident to feeling the most stupid guy on earth. Everybody obviously was shouting and laughing that I had to pay my debt however. Jj Fabric gas quickly realized that he had never stipulated what condition the vehicle had to be in so to get out of spending the fifty thousand pounds on a new model Range Rover. He instead paid a visit to his local scrap yard. He said I found a destroyed. Range Rover the couldn't be used at all for nine hundred and fifty pounds. So I said you know what I'll get that one fabric guests added that is wrong. That is welching on a bet. That is not the spirit of what this was about and if I were copier I'd be furious. It would almost be a friendship changing moment. I would say andrew you saw the video caballeros laughing his head off. I understand the cupbearer. Probably didn't actually expect a Range Rover for saving a penalty during training. But still don't make in keep. I kinda goes to show the you know the kind of money we're talking about here with these players that that could actually be something that could be conceived of. I will say I once had somebody Welsh on a bet with me that I won for four hundred dollars which doesn't sound like a ton but I don't I don't have a ton of money that's only eight hundred dollars so the bet what you want to tell you the story. It's kind of funny. It was back in two thousand seven and the Patriots had just one and I think they had just improved ten. Oh and so I was working and the guy next to me was also working. And he was a compulsive gambler and so he said no chance. They're going undefeated. You can see there's flaws there and I said I don't know man. I think they're going to do it. And so he said I'll tell you what twenty dollar bet and I'll give you twenty to one odds that they don't do and I said twenty to one odds that the don't go undefeated there. I said Yeah. I'll take that sure enough every week. They kept winning winning and he kept saying. It's not going to happen and they did it. They went sixteen at and He never paid me and it was friendship changing. I could look at the same way after that. And you know what the main thing about? That always bothered me. Because he gave me such heavy odds twenty to one odds for some reason. He demanded that I give him the twenty dollars up front. As if I wasn't GonNa be good for twenty dollars so all right fine. If that's what it's GonNa take completeness bet. Sure I'll give you twenty bucks up front so I did. He never even gave me back the original twenty that I fronted him for the bet bad dude and we were upset we were. We were work friends. At that point. We get a drink. Sometimes after work went out of something like that not after that change the way I looked at it on forever. Did I ever Megyn no this why he should have given you your money? That's ridiculous man. Oh yeah really low move. What are you? Have My red characters Ronald Daniel? This is something we probably should have talked about last week or the week before when it happened. But I'm Tom Herbert in the evening standard Attempts to answer the question why is Ronaldinho Imprison Ronaldinho Turkey? Nine is currently imprisoned after he allegedly entered Paraguay with a false passport alongside his brother. Roberto aged forty nine. The pair were arrested a match six on suspicion of entering the South American country with fake Paraguayan documents. But they denied the charge. His lawyer claims Ronaldinho did not know the documents were faked and instead we're given to him as workless honorary type document by local sponsor. According to the Sun prison warden Blair told Reuters in broad terms. He's doing very well. I sees in good spirits. Just you see him on television. Oh a smiling since yesterday. He looks very well. He talks to his other inmates. He goes out to the patio. According to the Paraguayan newspaper Hoy Ronaldinho was convinced to join a prison football match while behind bars and play the starring role as he scored five and set up. Another six goals. I love the detail scored five. Don't make sure everyone knows about the way I assisted on the other. Six all right. I want this record. According to reports running you could face up to six months in prison. He and his brother of both being denied bail. The footballing legend had to spend his fortieth birthday behind bars at weekend where he celebrated with a barbecue. This is just so weird man like why is he traveling on false documents fault Paraguayan documents? Like your use your own passport to get into the country like I. I know he would be the worst spy in the word. That's like that's like all those people who think Jackie Chan was undercover. It you know. He went undercover for that. For for somebody like let's have the most famous Chinese person in the world wasn't joke on the office inside. Is that it for you Yeah I really don't think I've answered the question. Why he's he's imprisoned yet. Traveling and false documents is going to get it done Let's see my man of the match now. Jj I admit In this time when you're seeing such generosity I saw cup cardiologists announced that he would give a million a million pounds to the corona virus. Relief effort you're seeing this left right. I had gone with. Maybe my lamest man of the match yet but you know what? It's something that I just. I'm so excited about. I couldn't keep it in. I figured I'd share it with all of you. Might end of the match goes to be REF DOT COM as in football reference DOT COM 'cause. Jj when it comes to checking stats American. Sports fans are all firmly aware of websites. Like pro football reference dot com or pro basketball reference DOT COM or of course baseball reference.

Ref dot COM is no joke and it's now loaded with statistical coverage for a massive portion of men's and women's soccer both club and international now. I'm not doing this because we're paid by them. In fact I don't know if ESPN might even consider themselves competition of websites like that because we have stats on ESPN FC Is Purely as a PSA to our listeners. Because I feel like maybe you found the same in weeks when we were researching stuff that we want to talk about on the show. I feel like finding extensive soccer statistics in one kind of like easy to digest. Place is weirdly difficult. Different sites have different goal. Totals layouts are weird but this is now a comprehensive site with really detailed stats. That goes deep. It's got all of your your stuff in addition to your more traditional stats detailed stats. And it's a brand that is trusted by American sports fans baseball reference DOT COM has been like deplace to get baseball stats for as long as I can remember F. B. Ref dot com soccer stats. Made simple work for them. That's my pension. A I mean that is one of your most land. I know I know I need to know that. If you've been looking for soccer stats and you you like me be like it's hard to find them. Well God smiling upon you. Yeah Andrew added. That's a cry for help from seriously. If that's the best you can come up with my God. What's wrong with you? I'm trying to help people. This is the best way I know how some people donate time money. No NO NO I. I share websites that provide statistical analysis of soccer. I mean you're actually phoning it in now this is the opposite of phoning it and I couldn't. There was so much easier more obvious ones out. There could have gone with folding it in. I can't even look at you. Wrote nerve your pathetic. Oh my God well what's yours. That's so special this is from. Espn the players Union. Berlin have agreed to go without their wages after the Bundesliga Club said that the stoppage caused by the corona virus pandemic had left it in a court extraordinary and difficult situation like football around the world.

Now they are giving up a lot of money to get through this crisis together. Own Berlin have enjoyed a respectable debut season in the Bundesliga and our eleventh in the eighteen table with thirty points from twenty five games. Look tough decisions have to be made? I know my hometown club in the League of Ireland ceased basically ceased paying players and staff and laid everybody off. They'll take them all on again. When the season restarts they're unable to play anybody now. Everybody kind of being on the one page and understanding that the future of the club and the future of the Coen when when football resumes is like really important. I don't know it's just that there's a sense of community I can't see I couldn't see a primarily Team doing something like this. Just we'll see we'll see if that happens. I'm not making any one. No it won't happen in the primarily because basically there's no club that will be in a position in the primarily Look at the money that's primarily just doesn't struggle in these kind of areas. Andrew was certainly not in terms of cash flow. Yeah well good shot by you. I guess that's kind of a good note to end the podcast on because I'll say this I'll be honest with you obviously you. Jj One of my closest friends but everybody who listens to this is not like a feeling that I usually have. But I'll tell you this whole everything going on right now. I'm nervous about all this like these are really uniquely times And kind of like what we talked about last week. We are more than almost anything that I can remember in my lifetime. We are truly all in this together so like we said last week. Let's look out for one another. Take care of one another. Let's just all be smart with how we go about this. You know life will resume back to normal one day but we're going to have to go through some really truly difficult days to get to that point and just remember that you know other people are having a bad day to reach out to your friends. Reach out to your family. People are GonNa want to hear your voice they're gonNa WanNa facetime with you know that you're doing all right and let's all get through this together one day at a time. It's these this is weird man. This is all just really weird but we'll we'll get through it. Nah I encourage echo. Those words is widely than damn. Look you see people and You hear stories of people working unbelievable long hour shifts in hospitals particularly New York City. Right now trying to trying to get on top of this thing and Yeah we all have our power to play on like I said before the patriotism we can show right now is by staying at home and staying away from other people yet. So Hey I'm GonNa need your help on this one. Jj 'cause I don't. I have some things with me but I don't have everything so I'm GonNa tell you right now. I hope you have a good night.

So that's good news I'm delighted to be joined by the team of mark, Langdon worn shirts to and howdy powerless Emma. Kafe. What have we got on the show we're going to touch upon tonight's second leg of the Championship playoff semi fun wet foot looking to get the job done and set up a Wembley clash with Western rivals Brentford, and then we will look at some of the issues surrounding the pre next season. Because of the season's done and dusted, we quite sure who the twentieth side to join the nineteen survivors as but we will find that look at the big issues. Top ambaum on the table we get stuck into is not the most magical glamorous if I cut fun of, but should be an interesting diamond heart for the boys unearths and decent bets, and then if you thought that was the end of the season you are very. Wrong, because we've got a riddick citing August featuring the climax of the Europa League and the Champions League champions they will look at in great debt in next week show. But we will have a good look at these concluding manage sixteen ties in the Europa League which take place next Wednesday and Thursday I start low premier league limber got the job done man city seconds man united and Chelsea claim the final Champions League spots. On the other end villa somehow survived Jack. Really absolately. Superb. What Ford and Bournemouth? Joins. Norwich in the championship. So let's look. Back, first of all mark, how was season you anti post? What was your favorite baton to Germany absolute nightmares Fight favorite but was one that was placed in the middle of the season on the whole to be relegated One it's was this ups and downs. I mean when we can go the deduction full it was it was ruined by a thankfully just was. The, price. Is going to send cerebral burs. The two hundred fifties and went down to sixty six oh my God. Feel? people prefer theater about losers. Don't they robin winning so you know I've got. A. jar none of. Smog, as you possibly can on that two, hundred and fifty, two, one, win incredible worldwide. Only bunny small amounts of out on the two fifty Yeah. Then when round the some processes while In terms of the worst I think my boss election. One of my worst selections ever Actually Mansfield to win lead to house will over them. To win it, and you know I very small. We posed on Mansfield in as well. dominate I. Mean Williams over before August you could tell them they just weren't good enough. Filled some mansfield worst best. What about you are Nashes? What was your favorite and least Flavor Anti Post? Did you have a sentiments away join your beloved Liverpool? I didn't I that Dennis Really, wellness Bruce I like mark. Book, not as anywhere near as big price had a little bit on whole. But this was only. After lockdown after ONS, and so it wasn't anywhere near as big a price as Marx has been going down I was a little bit frustration and a couple of my a- soft to say I I I went with wolves to finish in the top four kind of mid season, and also for Brighton to go down as well. I was kind of one. They were not bad ruined. The turn of the era was absolutely adamant right Mu be relegated by take my hats off to to Graham Potter in his place because I thought they got a couple of really big results after lockdown, which which kind of ease their fares mateen's below the. Results together. So that was my frustration. I. Still filled but for walls because I think they've been better than what maybe the lead position would suggest because. I think maybe over the course of it maybe should have deserved. Helpful. Fair Enough Brian of Adam Lallana were terrific mother and did you have any joy or was all fear you your Super Shrewd I? Bet You boys must epsom incredible ANTIPASTA. Yeah unfortunately I've missed. Supplies the office officer typical. Surprises cited for step-by-step laterally bus. The best but I had antepost was again this most people the Office this was from the championship anywhere from six seventy. Seven to six to one last summer on. Skirt. Eventually got the reasonably comfortably Doris be Stephanie lasted for like I was karate. Terms flipped. The talk for being weaker the. Points Talk Line Night Chelsea Goff's. Like the cut of the the nature of the lockdown at the Games coming every trees three days last a slightly squatter slot and losses to prayer shell not stick center really Arthur when they just mustache. Traded probably one point one. Point. Well you you'll make both my fam-. Afraid I'd only eggs in the less the basket. I'M GONNA go without the big six got the top six in the top four was almost impossible and worse. Still one book Mike Ron Dane Maguire joined united. It's seven to one Leicester to finish it Bob Unites took that I mean how? Lost of Al Pacino let's look at to next season. I'm the market suggests him that it's not just going to be another Liverpool. Firstly city shootout doesn't get tell us the latest bet and then give us your thoughts on on on where the volume might lie. Yes over the City or ten to eleven favorites fifteen. MINUTE LATE ONE CHELSEA, fourteen to arsenal slow fifty, one, sixty, six, bar. The Primitive Winner Markets Stephanie Reflections expected summer business will be and from all indications never pulled won't won't be spending big relief maybe tag entire Mike Studies it'll be But modern football standards relatively low budget kind of which it's awnings route expect city to spend big. I'm trying to sign at least one centre-half partner for America divorce on. A POSSIBLE RE-SIGNED! Farren Taurus Valencia I'm I. Liked you. Could've been terms yet right mark in general like the only ballad considerable maybe lester top four, five to one for all the reasons I can agape for. I I don't expect. which kind of that business to be done this summer And I can see that's holding on. Most Players League lactic considering their ownership bidding for possibly the likes of Jack, relish or some of the other kind of. Exciting talented offer. Less for five to one was the only for top forwards any bets me? Yeah No I. I just think that would actually cripple by injuries is fantastic fullbacks both out madison out I thought if they I thought, they should go after Wilfred Czar I think if they get him I think he would really strengthen out I'm. Bobby bonds but I'm not that mattered mark. What's your views on the Premier League for next year? Does anything jump out? I mean the twenty five woman united was was crazy nothing. Eat You know I? Think, they will win it by you. Think you just just not to kill Now I think probably appropriately, just h slightly towards live appointing just at the prices I mean Muncie dig dominate the expected goes and I think they are the best team in the formulae but I would still. Like, to see them actually sawing those players, the talks about before back them or Zolt to win the primarily because Guero So so I mean he's not getting any bettering still picks up his injuries. If you have a look at team I, mean definitely missed a sent half I mean even when the came back. There were issues leftback Mendis getting worse Account believe the play I was he's goal in the last eighteen months or so he doesn't seem to come back from easing juries massively well. So I don't think we're any excuses for Muncie In terms of the Lepore injury yet your but I mean. You got a I wou to absorb. One injury I mean could happen again couldn't it so? Off Ma I think they're soft foods much just don't think they'd go roots or mentality and that doesn't mean turned into the crazy gang I just don't think they've they've got character in that same there. Obviously, the best they knock it around their fantastic on a day like planning one of the pulp but I just think sometimes, you know when Liverpool came back from one down against Villa I don't think she would have done that I just got it in them to really. Obstinate character. I mean I mean, I, mean they. Conflicts it because I whenever they playing anybody always fancied to win Just. Look at the way they can dominate teams but I mean, we're talking about you know having a an investment for the next ten months. Of Ozone I just is just not familiar and not one on one since. They all the best team is just you know if they do bringing Cudi Bali, maybe leftback back and somebody else in into the midfield position was dino I think I think fern Dino. So of you know he's influence on the team five now. So he called play in every game he may be that person you talking on leading to that Bruce it maybe be. From them forward I mean, I think he's He's not some leak reliable anymore I and how many more. So in he's not getting any better. So I mean debris probably can't play any better than he did person the he was fantastic and they still finished a mile behind Liverpool and. I understand why the price they all but I mean on. factum. toppy after restarts Oh. It's quite amazing. Only one bruce. Warren. What are your thoughts in terms of the table for next season after cy kind of agree remark on this because I think I wouldn't be having city all. Of Seen. What they've done in the transfer market GORDY alluded to that they can do with another sensor half in my opinion to you knew full Baxter's well. I think cal walk was. Off The pace this season that's not forget the losing Davidge Silvo who's but an absolute talisman? Yes. Phil. Foden is is going to be an amazing player carries on the way is at the moment, but it's a big ask to come in and straight away replaced Avid Silva Lot that. I think as Zeus has not quite been wear pep. Guardiola. Expected him to be when he's come into play. Sergio. Guero and yes. If you a pin me down at the moment to say who do you think will win the tight leading city will be the team to beat. But I think odds-on and before we know what they're gonNA do in terms of of signings and I think it's IT'S A. Short for me to go with them at the moment, they were poor fifteen to eight the minute they will lead a couple new additions. KLOPP's already said in full-back area in particular thinking mainly left about really to be honest where there's nobody ready to go around the Robertson when he's out I, think there's a massive price for Chelsea at fourteen to one at the moment. When bet reminded plays at Broughton Over I'm with Zayat Chan the possibility that could be cavanaugh says, well, yes. Okay. We know the need to strengthen the back and they may will have to bring in one of two defenders and potentially even yet goalkeeper as well. But I think they've shown quite a lot going forward I think stability in midfield as well to suggest the US quite a big price of it might be too soon for themselves to actually win it. Interesting okay. Let's look at the bottom and I'm patty power. Don't have relationship jet but I have seen one of their rivals show up in. All right that is eleven to ten West Brom seven to four villa non Nantou four patties three Bryant and three, Bernie one, hundred, thirty, Sheffield United, seventy-two leads four West time. For Newcastle Eleven to two Southampton. Twenty and he's thirty three to one bar pick the bones out of that. Warren anybody you. There's I read them out. At the value for me there, Bruce I think is Newcastle I think at the moment completely in disarray behind the scenes because we don't know whether this takeover is going to go on and all and throw it into a new season and uncertainty over the manager which they bruce's. Is Not. Healthy. I think Bruce has done an amazing job with the squad that he's Golz, but I also think that there is a chance that maybe one or two might go and I think also defensively as well at times this season they've looked a little bit all over the place. So I I think Newcastle look a decent price in terms of that I think there's one or two whereas. You could look at in terms of obviously the promoted teams. I think West Brahman leads will probably just about. All right in my opinion I think they've got enough probably experienced a top football in that in a moment plus maybe one or two additions additions to maybe keep them up, and obviously we look whoever wins the playoffs and we always consider them to be there or thereabouts. Yeah. Spicer trump without Newcastle. Bay Is. By the end of September, it could either look really good valuable asset laugh with Pochettino manager and Zarin Cavani Upfront. So yeah, that's an interesting. What about your early relegation thoughts? Are would definitely be interested in Newcastle. birds because to Tyke over. Taking a long time. Now, I mean and if they don't get taken over that squad players say outside of Salman Roland. Maximum. Guy should written all over a at the moment expecting goals they were seen should have gone down DC's really so I think they all definitely being I disagree we've we've worn in terms of Westboro West. Brom. Go to hold on to stay up I. Never been a massive fan slumps loving bitch and also. I looked at their team for that they were a short. And I wasn't sure that they are the the investment in them to really go out and Prayer is a state player and he's one that will be I step up A. Rest of wasn't so sure. About leads. To, be off next season. So envisage them involved, and if Brentford come up on I think they'll be fine if it's full of college if I think they'll go down. Any relegation value then Decorate marks, marks, talks already destined. Newcastle like no new conflict player scored John Shelby was their top scorer in the league this year with six goals. That's auto sustainable formula. and. Like I want to be West Brom maybe three or four times this year. Every time. The decorating impress me. Possession white relying on on prayer as mark set. So definitely, the press you're gonNA preseason accumulators Jota would maybe. Be Maybe, Burnley if Sean dyche. A squad against. Is Pretty Mediocre and dog stops maxine talent last few years that. Trump is here's. To maybe. Even policy of some routes. There's been reports of having rifts rifts with Burnley chairman over. Spending the summer. So yes, but spots West Brom almost conference election for sure. Well I mean. The the case does zaas style. I want I mean the stories today the parents are going to do the usual thing of pricing on their on what is worth to us, which is a lot less than what it worth to any other clubs. So I do think we've got problems I mean it's a very aging squad they're poor off the lockdown, but again, safe I see. Palace. At nine, hundred, four and veterans seven four. I've got to be with mineral dieting crap I think really poor I think Jack Grady she's the player these the player of the year I mean how he kept them up single handy. It just shows what an absolutely great great player he is, and if he goes I, think they've got no chance no chance whatsoever honestly think rob. Complete while mentioning I, know people say polycom, we ought to an extent but. Nine four, place, seven, four, I mean we can certainly go down but to me the Dow outstanding value, there is villa. All Day old. Okay. Sorry just quitting chef broad zone one I just tell them she and then then seventy two people kicking people be kicking themselves. If if you know they suffer the old second season syndrome, I don't think happen you know I. It's happened before it's going to be very interested in that. Always really really interesting the relegation rice already let's just quickly touch upon who might be joining. The elite in the premier. League side Brentford already through the player Fanis next Tuesday at Wembley and then Fulham I think of tune up in there playing cards tonight very quickly leads any bets on this game that offense mark. Not, in, this game by just in terms of the the championship or may not burn against all ever them on the hope the it's Phoolan because you you get bad price on beat them to new craven. College the week I mean. That wobbles against while against ones and then in the first leg, and they couldn't quite over the line in the to opportunities that you had. But if you look stoke them went out and beat forest. Four and Barnsley nowhere relegation form. I mean anybody that was right in saint bouncing well ahead of where they are in the league tables. So I don't think results actually requires by foods, all the the best team left by a long way. So on a tip them lost week, I know I'll do it again bronchitis kite you just remind him in of another of my anti post horror shows forest to make the playoffs really enjoyed that warrant any player. I have to agree with of what I've seen of teams of I do think that Brentford are the better side I will be more concerned about having a bet on them against Fulham than against Cardiff I think Fulla. GonNa. Go through to the final looks of things anyway and Ken is one of those isn't it with a playoff finally never show what's going to happen? I mean. We'll remember the AH, the previous final and Dhabi county absolutely battered down the door against Queens Park. Rangers and we ended up with bobby more in the winner with ten men and these things do from time to time. But I I say. I. Agree with Mark. Think. Brentford all the patching. Okay an m. any value in the in what we've got in the remaining couple of games in the championship promotion. Yeah. Lots of something bread for their for this evening's game but. I think over two and a half goals was. Worth look clicked. For. Cardiff last five games I wouldn't expect. Cardiff go close to qualifying the evening off. Would expect to be pretty high scoring affair. So that's the look they're lovely stuff through the FA Cup final next, it's the FA Cup on Saturday and Patty power giving money back as a free batch if Chelsea win in nineteen minutes conditions apply. To. Write in it's FAA Cup final day on Saturday arsenal take on Chelsea is let's be. Let's get this out the way before we take a positive spin on it the least glamorous least romantic and least magical FA. All. These teams have won fourteen of the last twenty, three Fa cops they'd been in the final twice already they century. US winning on both occasions, it will be empty, it will be Solis bar it's a live football match. On BBC and it's an interesting betting events or no more negative. It's a and the other thing. Of course, we need to get the older they played for both clubs back out on we're not coming off until we've got an eleven of Plas-, you've played for Arsenal versus Chelsea. So while warren market, the thinking caps on for that Emmett, take us through paddy power latest is cup funnel betting. Sure. So Ochsner twenty-three cents. Neighbors Drought, five Chelsea represent. And to win. So to win the Cup yes. All right the. Chelsea right to thirteen and Arthur eleven takes excellent stuff right and what have we got jets Of Pets checking goal. GALLISON's send a half as she always left back. David Luiz at sends as well. Yeah. There's fabric acid midfield on a nel corrupt from Graham. Got One and I have checked avid louise, Ashti coal, Fabri gas. I'm just trying to think of any more full pleasant. We could make me feel route she ru. Upfront isn't it? Yes. Indeed. I won't get in there that only Yeah. Okay. Well, listen just blur any any other thing but we we've got. Yossi Penny Hyun. See. You didn't. Really, yeah goodness. It. But. Every single. Place. Chelsea. Legend of the seventies Alan Hudson played for both what play he was so He's in there. Okay. Well, we we we've done well but like. Of Number One bruce I just to check Graham rix I want for Chelsea. Wow. How about live? In Ghanzi caller, we're not when I moved policy. Graham rix. Well often running with the teen that I'm more importantly where it's the value on the two thousand and twenty. FA Cup a war on our show is take it away. I am going to say there's volume goals, Bruce because I think neither of the teams can defend at the moment and I think they know that strength is going forward. I've looked at over three and a half goals with potty power eleven to five for that would not surprise me one iota a think also looking at goalscoring markets as well. Alabama. Yang a future still in the air at the moment and one that still the case it'll be out to impress any possible suits is, of course, he's eleven to eight to score anytime. I'm already leaning towards Chelsea I think they've probably got for me more firepower at the moment in terms of goals, eleven to ten for Chelsea to it in nineteen minutes and also as well. Looking at the goalscoring markets is something appeal to million gaming pull us it I think has been absolutely outstanding since he came back from injury and even before that, he was good as well. Twelve to five to score any time we'll be amazed if he doesn't stop the game on. Saturday and I think he will be one-to-watch excellent John Funny enough worn out a quick flick through the markets and I was amazed Patty will pick him on the over two and a half seventeen to twenty eight to are very much agree with you and it's nice gun into game too fancy goals because I know that you always feel like cutting the values probably backing boring things but I grew up this could be really free flowing goal fest but he's Mark What about you. First of all. The Lights and Gripe David Roku also. Player was. Applied against him on. The floor this and he was outstanding act. I'm manage went into China instead of WHATSAPP, blow Corny came back and he it goes this kid who just go rocastle keep an eye out for him and yeah incredible prior. Yes so I in this. I would age towards goals as well as if you were to look into play, the overs are undeserving appropriate Rav obey only overs going gonNA disagree with Warne, and go actually for all snow to win the game just really all on the basis of how they played two matches against Chelsea the season nothing Chelsea are. Major issues against also, they did win the first game two one of them. But if you can remember that game, it was obsolete robbery Austin over them, and then there was. Leno made him state vote for one of the goals and then all snow gave it away right the end which. Always Georgia in them But then they played them again at Stanford Bridge plates men the most of the match Katsu to draw in that game off off the coast Chelsea. More problems than most teams season when they played them and I do finger also again better under Mikhail offset each every time they lose or disappointed result they get heavily criticized So more criticized than say Tottenham or something like that team that's probably of a similar level of to them and it was lucky. Oh, here we go. Again when they lost again, test them villa of recently the primarily but think that was understandable that game. Against US Villa. They had just played Liverpool a man sitting back to back one gains and you know, maybe it was a resolved Louis Michelle there a little bit tired I don't know but. I think we can forgive them not. They then came flying out the trot against WOFFORD football free new up. Jane was vote over before what for came back into lay on. Awesome stop thinking about if I top on the liveable if Peterman sixty, the way they defended in both of those games, I, think should give them a really big encouragement that they're able to go toe to toe. We've Chelsea and. For me food game that's closer in the betting the odds suggest. So I mean I think all snowed win the trophies properly while going who do you think's the band manager mark. I think long term I think I'll tattoo will have a a more successful career and that's not to demean really what Lumpar has done some fall because I mean it seems to be to come. There's some people that think he's is a bit of a fruit and just so like a tim show with a bed scene of a for the the fifteenth law, easily greatest manager. England's producing since our Ramsey ever I mean as the truth probably you know some way very voluntee- for will be in the middle somewhere I think he did Paul. Adobe, taking them to the playoffs and I, think it Chelsea. He's rewriting history when he said that nobody finds them to finishing the top four there about eleven to ten to finishing the top full. But yes, finishing top four. Cup final. Athena heading in the right direction. But I I just think it's All snow and as a spurs fan a look Allison on on quite concern that she I do think that he's daughter intimate looks like he's Pochettino all over again I'll concede similarities between the why the portrait seen ought to get rid of some of the bad eggs in that talking dressing Roy Stall. And you that the old bad performance buffing s accessible when you're this sort of new into a journey, but the way they played against mannon sixty. It didn't feel like a flute to me when they beat them to new I they that's defend world but you have to defend what against city they counted really well when they were very grave in the way that they played I think that they definitely heading in the right direction. Awesome. UNCOOL. Smile. If they need to win this into Europe from an almost thinkable France, not Sabine Europe next he's yeah. I couldn't believe it's twenty. Oh Jeez since this past the League position finishing eight full, whatever it was what eventually finished I mean. Mark, which is you know fact lights here. Yeah I mean, I, think I think if you look also in terms of Europe. Might not be a bad thing to be out of it. But it's just not the way pros delay is i. mean you. From their point of view it's been, it's been the north but I just think from Texas point of view while having a free week could be quite important. The way he wants to lay the team out. Okay Fair Enough John, Hopkins can play in that same gone. So I Just. I've got two more. Plays to. A French link care, Lassana Diarra. Trades and he played for Portsmouth both probably a bigger name. Now. Say. Oh Manatee. Cool Shan Joan Hollins as well. We're. We're overflying within the bench shop now. Well, platelets Emmett how do you see the cut funnel going? Yet It's interesting. I would know enormous playing. Scott sounds it over its. Teams to light up the battery up fear that a coop he could have A. Tight game book assistance constantly to their age. Mike competing like marketing and our slip desk improved under attack tests even though the expect to call statistics since the lock to end already bear that. Having. said that my watch them to feel like they're more solid defensively uncertainty charities return from treatment expects caboose for the. Makes their bacteria work whether it's playing wingback or if he placed in their central by three gives them some pace there. And I expect to be quite solid defensively think frank by the right mate last week with the dropping kappa for what he copy Arrow. Documents this stage campus. The campus had the worst shots dunking percentage to the priority. and. Possibly, one of the worst worst worst average shot percentages the primary. To WPRO. From whenever ever Caballeros play especially version team past he struggled with the ball is his fees and our select.

But. The of relate to our when firm her Monday march. Twenty two hundred, dot com he's out there like the nervous just to office therapy commentator confidence talked smart killing sexually. Looking for to give him out of the match also Chelsea struggled to that these threat to season. So easily be threat they're. And I bet, based on the judgement of Martin Keown. You. You. Sorry the other better I'm. Thinking, was think markets Lonzo thirteenth six or eight times rush. Scored four fifteen starts this year. Footprint, a tornado come.

Welcome back to the Racing Post Football Post carseats Bruce Minton Warren ashes. Mark Langdon and Patty Paris Emma O'Keefe. As I said at the star of the show, we've got a real euro trait. Once domestic action is over and done with because basically virtually the whole of August he's taken up with the exciting business who's GonNa win the Europa League and the Champions League. Mini tournaments now it's going to be. Next Wednesday and Thursday, we clear up the final round of sixteen business in the Europa League. Most of the first legs have taken place there on a of sixes and sevens We. Go man united taking on lask, which is A. Lewinsk- Athletic Sporting Club I believe and Australia a Best Australian accent there they're five from the first leg. Let's remind ourselves of what's gone on in the League in the fall northern our show of betting from Patty Emmett. Yes, some might editor five fifteen days Inter Milan nights to Leverkusen six one wolves starting to severe thirteen to Rome thirteen to shocked fourteen to one topic. Fourteen twenty, five sport. Okay. I don't have a terrible value for this. But then since their post look down rejuvenation, see why they favorites I will tell you who's playing a Wednesday and the boys will tell you what say like five, fifty, five, Schachter versus Wolfsburg same time Copenhagen versus Istanbul something or other eight pm man united versus lasker and also. Into Viga Tough I. What do you like mark a sample Bass Shahir I. Recently, recently, cramped Turkish champions. We've Gael Clichy Rabin. Young in the in scold.

Of Vets for this, the one, the alike in terms of the SA- gain that hasn't been as being stalled, suggesting that lost sixteen radio in terms of the ones where they have played. Wars would probably be Olympia Casa and get through. But the Butler is in certificates which has been played golf if of August. Weights Wednesdays Yeah I'm trying to work out a day that's Wednesday. So the. One leg guitar because they've they've not got to play on two legs gets fake finish law season. It would this season Rav. Ena. Rendez Foam in in Spain style on the Europa League for an. Incident, you know we'll be allowed this competition now, it wasn't a priority when they dropped into it from the Champions League, and then of course, they had Sarah. Talk Rights with insists, but that's gone as well. So the finally it's now being played in August I think gives them a decent opportunity to go it. So I mean I'll find out Ryan. So if I do that, really got to be quite strong on them basing Qasaf I, A in this. Round of sixteen one legged saw. Wow Blind me. I can never say guitar without doing it in a jerry. Birth one of your foam apologies boys was recently satisfied Alaska manager not start this lecture trying to teach me search Valerien Ismael. He joined us from I. Think.

And he he's pike the price for that were down tuning in results but was a bit surprised that they got. Five nearby Manchester. Actually done reasonably what in the competition to that point it might have just been You know just Robbie in the headlights talk things are. Often. So then in the second leg, really I mean, have you stay advocate motivated when they feel what they should be on the whole thing goes game an empty stadium when the of new down before the Games even stall, it doesn't feel like Obama thankless task to call does it ever bother I'll just rattle through Thursday time as well by the way severe Roy Moore by because we've versus ranges Basel Be Frankfort moves, versus Olympia. I get stuck into you. You've settled on Inter and who was. Just, just insulating. Worn as an outside back and I don't think it'll go through because that's one down from the first leg might be worth also looking at ranges at seventy two and for a couple of reasons back in league action, of course, before then so be fully fit for. To go with question marks, over K, haver is feature at the moment of violated coups. Not just wonder whether there's a few things of lingering over that club in terms of who will be the next season and. Maybe Rangers to win on the night might won't be about shut would seventy two. I don't think you'll go through overall but that's a bit of an outside bet accident interesting stuff. Thank you Emmett what do you like? Yeah, definitely.

23. Happy New Year!!!!!

"What's up everybody Rod? Two weeks did the PODCAST. I hope everybody had a good holiday season. I hope two thousand nineteen ended well for you happy New Year ear. I hope that twenty twenty is You know we're less than a week into it but hopefully twenty twenty years is treating everybody well so far I know I had a good time over the holidays. Days and talk to some people haven't talked to in a long time You know friends family I just had my new year's usually just a good time. I had fun Didn't do the PODCAST for two weeks and it was kind of weird. You know last week not putting Out An episode seems like there was a lot that happened even though you know there was a lot of games from the last time that podcast but not much really as happened the transfer market open. And you know we still got another three weeks Nothing major happened yet Mosasaurs Sesotho was major. That happened You know as far as players moving we kind of already knew before the end of the year before the market opened that players were talking to certain teams. The players were planning on making moves or you know. They made their plans known to the public or to the media So no surprises. There's no shocks that have happened as of yet Same thing with games to me. It seems like there was really nothing to shocking. That's happened since the last time I talked to. You guys But yeah today show. I'M GONNA keep it a little bit looser than I usually do. You know I'm going to try something a little bit different out. I mean I think I've tried tried this before but We'll just go with it so I WANNA start off with Transferred that not really transfers. It's a free basically but something that you know. I predicted I think a lot of people kind of predicted that it was going to happen as Lon- finally moving back to to Syria After finishing up with the La Galaxy. He's Kinda been in limbo since you know. The Galaxy got knocked out of the playoffs. I believe it was in October. HCT October And you know he's been linked to go back to A C Milan. But you know then you know some other stuff happened within Syria that kind of put that potentially into doubt Especially when Enchilada got fired by Napoli and now he's at Everton so Right after his Latin time with Ella Galaxy ended there was talk that he might go to to to Napoli work with Enchilada and and then a sect. He's at Everton's I was reading and seeing a whole bunch of stuff on twitter about him you know potentially going to like Bologna or Everton in. He definitely wasn't GonNa go to a C Milan but like I predicted Which I think a lot of people saw happening anyway He is back at a C. Milan you know. He had his first match deplete against like some lower level team. The final score ended up being nine zero but but he he actually scored in that match He's wearing number twenty twenty one. He's not going to be able to wear his number eleven. But yes. There's a lot of times back so you know I think it's great for you. Know not only Syria but also for or You know for European football in general and you know right now. He's only on a like a six month deal. So you know the deal. Run out in you know In during the summer transfer market opens And right now he's thirty eight years old. I'm not sure when his birthday is but He's thirty eight but he definitely not playing like he's thirty eight years old so seeing Latin and how he was playing in In the MLS. You know I could see him potentially play until he's like forty one forty two Obviously the MLS is a lot different from Italy You know we'll see how how how things work go out and you know how how he fits in with the team But I don't see him. I don't see him slowing down. I mean you know those three months. I guess that he wasn't playing claimed he was training hard but You know it'd be interesting to see. You know how he is in you know he's already been talking about like you know playing against Rinaldo and whatnot so it'll definitely be interesting to see. I'm I'm interested to to see you know how their season is GonNa go You know now that he's back in there right now they are. Dr Milan is nowhere to be found in the table. will top six police. And who knows maybe he can get them into to like you're oblique spot for next season. Maybe or you know at least upset. Some some of the bigger teams you know especially inter- with their rivalry. But we'll see but I'm just I'm excited because you know he's playing in my time zone again and You know just be good to see. See Him back in Europe he. He's been out of Europe since he since he left. Manchester United are moving onto another piece of news. Not Not really anything. Transfer related to you know. We know that the report won the Cup You know the beginning of December but because the way the premier merely gives in their rules and get it you know they like this conservative league stars above their badges and you know all of the Premier League is not going to allow Liverpool ever pool to where the club World Cup that edge. Now they did allow them to wear it for one match during When they were playing against believe it was wolves and you know it looked? It looked good. I think that they should be allowed to. I mean that's just me. I think it looks good. I think you know you're the CIA there the champion's Club champions of the world you know. Why would you not want to have that on showcase in your league which you know? A lot of people will say is the best league in the world Mainly because of the parody of it but They got to wear the last night they play in the FA Cup So they were allowed to wear but I. I don't know you're just too. You're the best team in the world. The Best Club team in the world. Why would you not be able to wear that? They'll be able to wear during the Champions League. which you know is no issue? But I don't understand why the Premier League is the way that they are. They've allowed teams to change their badges their club badges which this is one thing. It's not like you know they're wearing a badge when they become come the FA Cup champion or the Care About Cup champion or whatever. This is the best club team in the world. I think that you would want to showcase that during their games to show that you're league which you consider the best in the world has for the first time in over ten years the best team in the world according to you know being the fever club World Cup champions to me is just. It's it just seems a little dumb I understand you know there's those spurious out there that thinks that it destroys the kit or whatever but it's one thing I mean. They weren't badges on their on their sleeves constantly advertising on their sleeves. I think that this is so much better than you know. Having something on there for care about or I don't know Oh. Ea Sports or something like that. You know. This is actually something that's actually competition-related shows the best club in the world. The France dance is wearing it now for winning the World Cup Germany was wearing it before that and the Spain was wearing it before that and I don't think it takes away I think the fans love it I'm sure a lot of fans are GonNa be you know when they win the Premier League in a few months fans are GONNA be rushing out to get the new Liverpool Jersey with with the FIFA club Badge and the Gold Premier League badge. So I don't I don't know I don't see it as as an issue like you know the League does does she sees it as an issue but Yeah they did where it last night during the cup. So obviously it's not that big of a deal sound like it's their advertising something that they shouldn't be Next thing as being of the club World Cup there's going to be another one this coming December. That's in the the current format that Liverpool just wanted in but as spoken about before in twenty twenty one which is next year which is crazy. the Liberal Cup up is going to twenty four teams But recently CAF the African confederation. They moved their continental championship from the January February time frame to the summer. Now they do. There's every two years so it was always an issue having it during in January February timeframe. Because you have players in the Premier League France Germany Italy whatever they would have to leave their club teams in the middle of the season to go down to Africa play for their national teams. You know there's the risk of injury whatever whatever and please come back and they need a few days or a week or whatever ever to to readjust Not necessarily from the time but just from you know training with her national team and Getting back into their squads But now because Feta is changing the Cobra Cup from December to next summer now calf is saying oh well we. We may potentially remove the African Cup of nations back to the January February timeframe just so they won't conflict with club World Cup now me personally. I don't understand why you need to have a year continental championship. Every two years. I mean Africa has just as many countries as Europe rope and Europe still does. There's every four years you know. They have an offset with the World Cup. I think that would be a better idea. I mean look at look at South South America uncomfortable. They do yes. They've had multiple recent Copa Americas. You know because they had to do the hundred anniversary and then they were just constantly changing their format but now they're on every four year the same year as the euros so there they had one last year but they'll have on this year that after this year the next one will be twenty twenty four twenty twenty eight etc so the have the World Cup in the next two years will have their continental championships. Just like the the euro's and then the following two years they'll have the World Cup. I think that Africa should get onto a similar schedule. I think all confederation should probably do either because even encounter calf with the US Mexico. Canada they have the Gold Cup every two years. I mean there really is no reason to have the Gold Cup every two years in my personal opinion Already you know. They're already playing like a lot a lot. A lot of football anyway so why not just change it to every four years and you have the World Cup in between there You know conquer cavs a little bit different. They have less teams in Africa and And Europe but at the same time countable has less teams than Kinda Cava does and they still are doing. There is every four years so I think it would be perfect if all the continents Minsk got on the same sheet and just did their contents championships on the two years in between the World Cup. It would just streamline everything we're just make everything a little bit easier. I get it that. A lot of African players use the African nations in order to showcase themselves to get picked up for teams in Europe Until understand that but Now either the guys that are already on teams in Europe or wherever roaster playing. They're going to have to leave their teams club. Teams midseason again just to go play for their national teams. It just I don't know and it it just seems like there's a a much better solution. The Secretary General of the President of Calf Musher which one it was said that it also had to do with weather conditions. Which I get because I've been some places in Africa in June July and it's it can be pretty brutal but The next one's going to Cameroon. I mean the way that you would just add as you make games either earlier during the day. which if that's not possible? You Make Games at night when the sun is going down. Everybody knows that there's parts of Africa. That are hot. I mean there's parts of the Middle East that are hot During the summer there's parts of Europe that are hot got so I don't know whether considerations I got it but if you're just doing it just because of the club World Cup and we don't even even necessarily know for sure if has totally determined how many slots Africa's going to have for the World Cup I don't think that's that's a good enough reason As of right now it's still in June July twenty twenty one but keep in mind they just had con last year in two thousand. Nineteen so Yes we'll see Next thing I want to talk about Oh yeah. Before the New Year everybody knows how the Premier League their December schedule is craziest stupid congested. Everybody plays a game the day after Christmas. Boxing Axeing Day Everybody knows that If you've ever played FIFA in you're playing with the Premier League team in you're still in all the cups or you're in the Champions League even You if you look at a December schedule it looks crazy like a game. Every three days is like eight games in December. If you're still playing in all the competitions and it can be pretty crazy but you know. Ea An you know the the video game kind of weird sometimes where you might have a game on like a Wednesday. Then you'll have another game on Friday. It's you can't use any of the same players except the goalkeeper and you know it's just insane but somehow this in real life happened to Man City where they had to play two names within forty eight hours which is pretty crazy now. I get that at the same time. Liverpool all had to play two games They had to play the Liberal Cup. Final and then like the day before that I believe or twenty three hours before that they had to play care about L. Cup match. That's a little bit different because you know they made it to the club World Cup final because they won the Champions League so you know they should have been given a little bit more leeway because of that Plus you know with this new moving. The club broke up to the summer. It'll completely alleviate that game or those two games that would have to play in December but The Premier League do better. I mean having a team played two matches within forty. Eight hours is is is pretty crazy they can easily adjust that schedule to either. Play the game you know. When there's you know a better time slot take the l classical? It was supposed to happen in October. Believe they ended up playing it in December So they had like match day ten in December. Even though all the other clubs around like match Seventeen or whatever it was. It's too easy to to schedule those games later. You know what I mean. especially if it's a is the league match like there's really there's no need to if it's a it's a cup match. I got it but league matches. You can reschedule this. Because now you're risking player. You know health and whatnot and don't get me wrong like I enjoy when there's a lot of football on 'cause you know I just have no issues watching a lot of football but I WanNa see good football so I don't necessarily WanNa see you know whoever Sergio Guero. Let's say for example on Man City playing and then you know he has a pretty decent in game and then because it's a league match a couple of days or the next day or the day after the Knicks play now. He can't play because he's not rested up enough. You know. And it's a league match like people are playing paying good money for that. Sky Is not cheap. You know what I mean I don't know I just think they need to. They need to figure that out but it may end up happening for them like an example that That I can think of. It was almost twenty years ago but September eleventh in the United States changed the way that the the NFL did the Super Bowl. The Super Bowl used to always be the last The last Sunday in January eleventh happened and they headed like take a week off often ended up having the super bowl the first week in February the following season they went back to having it the last Sunday in In January any worry but then they I guess they decided. Let's go back to the first week in February and they stuck with that ever since so it was something that was unexpected in September eleven was a tragedy but it's something that completely changed the game and changed with the playoffs ran that was unexpected and with that being said because because of the twenty twenty two World Cup granted you know. We're two years away two and a half years away actually almost three years still away from it because it'll be in December November December number of twenty twenty two the Premier League's going to have to figure something out because there's no way that they're going to be able to have that full slate of December matches. Choose with you know players from it doesn't matter what what clubs play for manager National Teams. So you don't WanNa have. I mean I don't know we'll see Sergio aguayo place for Argentina. I don't think so but there's going to be so many other players that are playing in the Premier League for during you know whoever knows Italy Germany Blah Blah Blah Spain. Whatever you know Brazil would ever even that? They're not going to be able to play for their national channel teams into December. And then come back into the Premier League can play you know like. Let's say five games in two weeks or whatever that's that's basically what the Premier League is doing so there may be an unintended unintended consequence that ends up being a benefit for some players with this twenty twenty two World Cup. A lot of people like myself have been complaining about it that it shouldn't be in December November. That's not what they did for. You know the whole corruption thing with Qatar in them even getting it but but this may actually change the Premier League What they could do is do what Francis about the do so France has two domestic cups cups next year? France will only have or at the start of the season in August in twenty twenty. France is getting rid of the Coupe Della League Their League Cup which basically the Care About Cup They're getting rid of it in order to help with game congestion. Maybe the A The League needs to do the same thing and get rid of the care about cup. I mean to Care About Cup. Final is going to happen in February and nobody really cares about the care about cup. I mean yes. It's a cup. I think the winner gets something I don't know maybe they get like a Europa rally qualifying spot. I think but I don't even know because it might just be the cup have to look that up but nobody really cares about the cut. Plus the final is in the middle of the season like the middle of the second half of the season nobody cares. Fa Cup is huge everyb- the oldest football competition in the world. Everybody loves the FA Cup Care About. Nobody cares they could get rid of that. And that's going to free up some days and it's not it's not GonNa hurt the teams in the Premier League Championship Championship League. One and two. Like it's not GonNa hurt them. Just get rid of it. I don't understand like the Bundesliga they somehow still are able to have A winter break. The Bundesliga completely has a winter break. Yes they have to less teams than all the other big the big leagues in Europe. But they're able to have a complete basically complete month off and in like it hasn't snowed in my party Germany but nobody wants to play in the snow like they still have. I think two weeks two weeks left on the the winter break but I think that maybe that that would benefit to or even one week off like give the players like the first week in January. Offer something something in the primarily would would benefit the league and it would benefit the players. Definitely but I know I've seen how Germany can do it and and you know understanding of two teams but Germany can do it and definitely the Premier League can definitely do it because it's they're just wearing out the players I mean they're gonNa yes playing in England a lot of players WanNa do it but I think they can make it a little bit more attractive if they. I don't know maybe that's why there's so much parody too because there's the wearing down the players so much that it's hard for teams to maintain especially when you have top shelf players that are playing playing for their national teams as well. Then you have only summer competitions. The international champions whatever Asian whatever Toyota cups and also the stuff breath as my take on. I think that they really need to scale back on some of that so all right moving onto some guard news. His visa to guard has they sacked manager and they bring in someone that I have never heard of. His name is Pellegrino matter matter easel. he was an assistant. Coach at Hockenheim He was born one of the US but he's Italian. Also you know dual citizenship. which I'm assuming his English should be amazing born in New Jersey But at the same time they bring in a new manager they got rid of two of my favorite players from the team. I wish to manage. Look we'll see how it goes sitting third in the table right now. They won't play another game until January. Twenty ninth so they still have three and a half weeks left But they sold twenty two year old midfielder Santiago. Ask a C. Bar and he's going back to the Bundesliga the first Bundesliga and he's going to be playing for your clansman. Berlin Guard got a report at ten billion Euros Forum. which I think he would probably should've been worth at least like twelve to fifteen But it is what it is on the other side Defender Emiliano and sewer Booze you know. He's always been one of my favorite players. Follow Him Instagram He's Martina he's he's moving on. He's already gone like he's going to the illegality. Both of these guys are gone. They're not coming back after the winter break or anything they already gone with their new teams already. And it's just upsetting to see due to my two of the players that are really liked on the team. That are leaving Miliana. He's thirty years old. So you know I guess he's on the wrong side of thirty but he's he's still playing well I wish him well in MLS with L.. A. Galaxy I'm sure he'll he should go. Go in and be a starter I would I would think Escobar not sure we'll see I wish him luck to Whether or not he'll be starting I would think so but I don't know he kinda has a little bit of a temper too. which is one of the things I kind of liked about me seemed to every game that I went like physically? Have the game name. Since he always got a yellow card. Sometimes get a check. Did he gets straight read Great player though. And you know I'm GonNa miss both of them sure. A lot of the the fans are going to miss them. But yeah I mean that's so as I mentioned obviously and everybody knows. Transfer market is open You know January. You know hasn't really been too crazy over the last couple of seasons no real like big moves But you know there are players that are making moves for the summer already but One of them and I don't know how true this is because I've I've seen so many players linked to Inter Miami especially with them. They're gonNA start playing in two months now but I've seen so many players linked to them that UH I don't know how true this is but man cities David Silva is he allegedly has come to a verbal agreement to join Inter for Miami during the summer. So right after the premier league season ends He I don't think he'll be playing for Spain. What could could be wrong but He will be joining. Inter Miami allegedly now about Miami. I saw something also said that in Cavani this was a few months. Go probably four or five months ago. I think even posted on instagram. That he had agreed to a deal to join Inter Miami You know in the summer of Twenty Twenty But obviously I think that rumor is completely false now because of this Just read something that said he's headed to Athletico Madrid in the summer and he's already got a pre contract agreement with them But who knows this could work out well for it Cardi because you know with Cavani gone it opens up a little bit of space. You saw Imbaba Neymar Cardi could be the third there but Yeah allegedly Cavani is going to athletic Madrid allegedly like I said I read a few months ago that he had already signed a pre sign but he agreed to a pre contract agreement with Inter Miami. Take with a grain of salt who knows One of the biggest transfers that's happened so far The goal scoring machine from Red Bull Salzburg Erling Harlan Holland. He joined a Bruce Dorfman for a reported fee of forty five million euros. So Oh you know. I'm sure they're going to have during this winter break. I don't know where they went. You know most of the German teams tend to go to Spain or Italy or somewhere warm You know during that winter break to train and they'll play a couple of friendlies so we'll see how that goes with him But I haven't seen him playing or anything or I I I don't really follow Dorfman. You know outside of the little social media but I'll look into that to see what games they have coming up To see if we can catch a snippet of him in a in a friendly during the winter break. all right. You've antithesis Mario Men's gauge I guess he wasn't feeling the love anymore He left you vent and is going to. I'll do how from Qatar on a free transfers already signed he's already there I think his first match will be playing in a things. AFC Champions League match. So what. I read Congrats to him You know he played well in the World Cup two years ago. He's getting up there in age so going to guitar Sir is a good move for him. let's see. Oh another one I'M GONNA probably butcher this name. You can use his feet before. You're him an Harlan Takumi Minamino. He also left Red Bull Salzburg and he joined Liverpool for reported. Seventy the excuse me ten million euros He actually played last night in the FA Cup match Liverpool against Everton. He played for about seventy minutes Liverpool won the game. I don't know how much impact he had didn't get a chance to watch the game but I don't know you know. Obviously he's a good player to the point where Liverpool wanted to pick up Like I said I played with him in FIFA and he was really good like he was he was really really good. I actually brought him to some other teams signed up leaving. Red Bull sells bird but He's a good player to get him for only ten million. He's a Japanese international so to get him for ten million euros is pretty damn good so our may hit over these So dump obviously Bundesliga still on international break and RB. Leipzig is on top of the table. And not going to rehash that but just to cover the other Four from the top five leagues In the Premier League after twenty one matches Let's see we got Liverpool on top. They got a game in hand with fifty eight points. lesser cities in second with forty five man cities in third with forty. Four Chelsea's enforcer thirty six men united with thirty one at Tottenham uh-huh and six with thirty down the bottom for relegation the relegation battle Sitting in seventeenth place. We got asked him villa with twenty one points. Born muth in eighteenth with twenty Waterford in nineteenth with nineteen points and sitting way down on the bottom. I mean there I do in this bad but in last place we got Norwich City with only fourteen points after twenty one matches. That's that's pretty terrible Let's see La Liga after nineteen matches. We got Barcelona on top with forty points. in second we have real Madrid also with forty points. But you know it's goal differential in third place. We got Athletico Madrid with thirty five points to be doing well in sitting at four thirty five In Fifty Riyal Socio died with thirty one and Valencia is in six with thirty one points also at the bottom in seventeen. We got Celta Vigo in Eighteenth. We got real Majorca Nineteenth. We got legal needs and in last place. We got Espanol Syria area after seventeen matches except for a few of the teams. We get into Milan on top. They actually play tonight. The sitting on top of forty two points events second also forty two because of the goal differential lossio in third with thirty nine points. I believe believe they play tonight or this coming weekend We got Roman fourth with thirty five Atlanta in fifth with thirty. One in Calgary in six with twenty nine and at the bottom of the table and seventeenth. We got some Doria with fifteen points. They got a game in hand though Brescia In Eighteenth with fourteen Genoa also with fourteen and in last place we got sprawl with twelve points are Li off. Zephyr nineteen matches watches PSD They got a game in hand they got forty five points in second. We Got Marseille. Thirty eight ran with a game in hand and they have thirty three Lille Enforced to thirty one. Not In fifth with twenty nine and Rams also with a game in hand They're they're sitting at twenty eight points the bottom of the table. We got mets in both sitting at seventeen points but we own a game in hand and Nam mm-hmm in nineteen points also with a game in hand they have twelve points and to lose in last at the very bottom with twelve points. Pretty bad for some of those some of those things. I just didn't expect to see down there. especially like in the pre merely note city. I thought they would do so much better than they're doing but still a lot. A lot of football left. Play all right. So let's Talk About Cup matches. We get the Care About Cup which I mentioned you know. I don't really care about cup but down to the semi finals so Tomorrow night we. We got Manchester United Hosting Manchester City in other Manchester. Darby Does she likes to be a pretty good game. Just because of the teams that are in it and you know. Manchester City is definitely chasing trophies. This year Manchester United's just chasing winds And then in the other semi-final I final. We Got Lesser City Hosting Aston Villa. That game will be on Wednesday but then the second leg for both Let's see the lesser city second electricity Aston Villa's second legs on the twenty eighth and then the Manchester City second-leg Manchester United Manchester City. Second legs on the twenty nine and then you know we'll see who's who's in the final but I think the winner of that Manchester Darby will probably end up winning the Caravelle Code to be honest with you. let's see Spanish supercup. This is going to be held in. Saudi Arabia talked about this months ago. On the podcast they decided to not do the supercup in the beginning of the the season like most leagues do they decided to turn this into a little mini tournament You know mainly because there's so much money involved in it with Saudi Arabia But now it's the winners of the the League La Liga in the Copa Del Rey and the runners up from the League and the Copa Del Rey. So in the first match we got. Valencia will be playing against Madrid on Wednesday January eighth and the other match. We are Barcelona Lona playing Athletico Madrid. That'll be on Thursday. January ninth in the final will be obviously between the winners of those matches on January twelfth so We'll see some of the the big matches that are GonNa be on today if you guys are looking for matches to watch I got not believe elite hosting Inter Milan in Syria and then in the FA Cup we arsenal hosting leads now. Obviously I'm I'm I'm an arsenal supporter. you know. They got their new coach. Miguel Arteta But I'm no I mentioned you know probably a month month and a half ago About about the documentary on Amazon prime about leads. It's really good. It's narrated by Russell. Crowe and I learned a lot about leads. I remember when I started really watching football. They were a pretty decent team in England. they've obviously fallen off because money money selling players and find financial mismanagement. But now they have Marcella Bell sells coach. And you know he's been doing an amazing the job they're sitting on top of the championship Aiming for promotion which. I think you know they didn't get it last year which if you watch that Docu series? You'll you'll see But I think this year I think they're going to get promoted. They're going to win the championship. And then they're gonNA be in the Premier League next year but That's why this match is interesting to me because I know I know a lot about both both teams now That matches on tonight Probably definitely be catching that Probably for sure I'll be watching that Our big matches we got over the weekend. Got Tottenham Hosting Liverpool in the EP L.. That'll be on Saturday. Also Lousy Oh hosting Napoli in Syria also on Saturday and then Inter Milan hosting Atalanta offer Saturday. So thank you Seri- thank you for butting in like that. Sorry about that I guess I maybe I should start seeing the Italian league. So I watched doesn't think I'm talking to you. It just shows you. How boring my life is serious? You know I have no events scheduled for Saturday. That's entirely too funny okay. So embiid matches for Sunday in the Italian Lee We Got Roma hosting events dentists and in League on the French league we got. PS G hosting Monaco. Now Monaco has made drastic change since the beginning the season when they were in dead last it seemed like it took them forever to To finally get some points and actually get on the board but but they're not in the relocation spots anymore there Actually let me see where they are at right now. Monaco's axiom seventh-place right now and and you know they're hosting PSG or no sorry they're playing at PS And we all know They've lost three matches a season in the league. But but Yeah I can't see them losing to Monaco but like I said Monaco has they went from twentieth. Another two seven so anything is possible muscle. We'll see probably watched that match the same thing with the Roma you've anticipate as long as they're not at the same time but this weekend is some some pretty decent matches on definitely recommend many guys catching some of those if you get the opportunity to With that though I'm going to end the show I hope he does have a great week.

You have champion crown it just go on and on forever with all of you with all of you storylines with all of your characters you need to you need to crown a champion, which is the point of the Premier League. It's not the point of football. The point of football is lots of other things, and we'll talk about that. But the point of the primarily is to Chroma champion and crown a champion as we did as we will discuss in this one say we'd be remiss if we didn't they see with immensely humanly satisfying.

We're gonna look ahead to the All England Club that is the champions and Europa league finals, and we taught the USA's three nil win over South Africa yesterday for the final time this season rose. So the football. Yes. Last time this season. Won't raise my first third bird of the day to watching football watching football for me. I don't know if you've noticed in the new way this season trying to watch with love with. I haven't really noticed you've not. He's positive vibes. Noticed you talking about your positive? Spiral down. Negativities just to be clear to keep about some doing the same doing votes on the proper. You and I both grew up in England in the eighties. When the nation was in dire economic reality. There was a huge time of trouble huge Gulf between the north and the affluent south suffering in the news a lot of affluence in the south. And the cat was always football just felt try ballistic. He was really football amuse. It rule. We had it was football with a loss place where we compete almost on. Equal terms can feel pride in our cities in our region success and the towns were crumbling around this but gang older, maybe it's a little bit. Because football teams have changed longer. Truly local they aspire to be global disease. Maybe it's the wolf feels a little more challenged football feels more like an escape whatever is of tried to watch this season. Try Dave with positivity and respect and the stunning your truth to be honest. You've told me this just because you team wins. It doesn't make you a better. Person and vice versa. So marveled this season. I've really tried the tenacity of Raheem sterling razz, the fearlessness of Trent Alexander old joyful wonder of sunny, the leadership pot of cloth Pap of ole wall fell the pain of ole two of Harry canes, injuries of Surrey. Oh, the pain that cigarettes couldn't take away an at times on Twitter. I've heard from other Evertonians angry when of marvel that Liverpool's tenacity, determination, perseverance Roach, unco, Tony, and that's true. But I've realized in life I'm gonna Tony, and I but somewhere deep down this somewhat deep deep down there. I'm a human second. And I've tried to tap into that. Tuck into that season. I have I haven't it's been wonderful really has to marvel at Champions League semifinals as we'll discuss to. Appreciate Andy Robertson story, Benard, they silver all Lucas more. It's to be a noble. I believe this David there's enough. Sadly, there's enough. Hey in the real world right now so raises but fan blood from to watching football with positive vibes to football fan the born of love. Thank you, Manchester City. Thank you. Thank you all you've made us and by me feel alive because you're a human second. Human whatever Tony kills human. Where would you had human David third one human one? You sport. Love human was. Love family to three football for England five. Chelsea crystal. For me. I'd have a slightly different rankings up. Evertonian? Probably have holocaust obsessive Liverpool breakdowns and crew in that were pooled proud bold and a family and then at Foley of books, we number five lead tweet in but scotch drinks. And and then properly human. Clouds, you love Klaus raid and kill these just below human. But because we've had shot when I feel too. To the stuff. They talk about the football. But we need to wear us. We're gonna start wrote the title race definitely the title race man city outlaws livable in one of the best primarily campaigns in recent memory after retrospectively brief spell of Glen Murray juice things onto yesterday city came back to batter Brighton. Full one on the south coast rendering livable's to nil win over Wales inconsequential. But we want to go back to the beginning. And relive it. As an folded. Where began with city saying out to grab full title in eight seasons against in aka the seventeenth best team in the finance that I thought about this one really's, a human, psychological, scientific experiment. If you read psychology magazine today, you'd know what me more would human beings having pack their bags to go on vacation council their newspaper for the week made that last dash run to the the Walgreens for the SP fifty. They forgotten. Would those same people still give crap to do that job when the suddenly co back to work when they're on the brink of Oubre excelling to the apple I mean, I can only for the pro in place. This must have been a bit annoying. They would have preferred to replay full. What just to gain that mattered? Dr John no one would have been watching but have the glare of the entire global than the scrutiny when they have done that job. They've avoided relegation to have to pretend to give a crowd ROY lost. They must have been a bit annoying. I don't know. I feel the opposite. I feel that this was a great way to end the season playing by basically having the eyes of the world on you these professional athletes. They wanna be the center of attention. They want to be playing in big games. This is a big game all of them on the same day. And we'll get to this Cardiff a relegated team went into Old Trafford and beat anew surely for Brian. This was a chance to be spoilers spoil the party to dictate. They're not going to win the primarily, but they can dictate who's gonna win the Premier League. I think it was a massive opportunity for them. Judging the atmosphere of the next you were it was so concern. It was noise. It was see goals and field similarly, Coldren Ewing. Clump who after say status is fast transcending football management. Steve Kerr, no quote him. He's always moving into bestselling self help. Territories. I could join German Suzy OMON. He said, let's make today about us as Liverpool is find the joy that comes from the moment. Back at the x slightly less. Joyous city. Disjointed anxious the beginning we were treated to the rest site of David Silva fluting routine passes, stray our bounds. Small small supply re had David Silva schools. With the man, I'm just raising this because they had transplant cushion retail. Brian lucky levels, bulletin and half. Don't do it on seventeen minutes hope for Liverpool. Wipe and Dave trend three names. It's on the arm for the first time this season delivers a killer ball into the books takes kind of wicked deflections, and then you go in the back of the net from Saudi Amani from clamps range Liverpool. Go classic from this season's playbook kendo to trend. Three names to Manny from close range and back. Brian seagulls fund. Start singing one nil to Liverpool and the crucible of human pressure on Manchester City is suddenly turned up to eleven we'll say yet retrospectively pull move Brian funds to trash talking tonight king, but we did get the much directed Gidley early cast in the camera onto suddenly panic stricken faces of city fans travelling city, real Dale lots of bullheads Spooner. In the Sussex, which kind of the spectacle of watching, and it would get worse for city, Dave, which we haven't said, I think all year, but it would get worse for city. Yes. City struggling talking shaggy rose struggling with the long grass the groundskeepers down at Brighton grown, the gross. A little bit longs. All wasn't like moving through us Glen Murray tach treatment on it. Let's. Right. When a free k always going to be dangerous from a free-kick twenty seven minutes bull comes in and who else Roach who else is going to school that goal but blend? Mario right. We've is no gain like a bull sex gold to make one nil. Bri informer Wilmington. Hamma ahead. Move an extra mation point. And it felt like the moment of a goal to Chicago bash right, yet JJ Stankiewicz who's a month city found texted me they second. He said this is all too much a flashback to another terrible defeat against funds e team with and and its yet, Bryan and who've album Trinidad and Tobago. When will you big teams realize that no matter how powerful you think you are you should never take onto teams at once. David city could kill Brian throw in hand who've and they were in all kinds of trouble early date. However, there was another rule football Liverpool and Brian mess with. You don't school too early Roach? Did you fail in the movement fill in the simultaneous matches absolutely two teams, both livable and Brighton and Hove Albion three teams at school through early at this point. I mean, we should say that go with the first time since you've been behind Newcastle on the twenty ninth of January, which is extraordinarily and you and I always say the true test of champions true test. True champions is how they respond to adversity. We had to wait an entire eighty three seconds of a player who it's remarkable to say. But probably the most underrated player in the Kremlin. Sergio guero does what Sergio guero always does gets Mansi back on level terms. But it was more than a goal got back on level terms. He common calmed everything. And ultimately won the primarily we should say after monkey Navid Silva's tube. And he has flick to agrarian that provided dancer tool of our questions. We've sung ballots the Cuna Gorey's big game. Desires so many times for they don't seem to stick though. There's something about him that he's like Teflon the praise the panache the brand building around the man is not where it should be. You look at you look at for bullying heroes who've won far less than him at club level. You look. You look at your pope is just the amount of investment. Brenda poured into them. And this is almost a shoot dot kind of line of image building despite his incredible potency. But it was to me no surprise and their moment of need really was a moment. Literally just they removed that it was Cuna Guerra that stuck it with the pointy. And I can't think of another player in the Premier League who manages to get free in the box. He's one instant he is so tightly marked often by more than one player and the next is and he is completely free and in space to shoot it's so difficult to get free in the box in the primarily so difficult when the bull is played into him in the box. He controls it. He's tightly marked. And then suddenly he's in space, and he's able to shoot it's like he's gotten invisibility cloak will something that he suddenly disappears. So they defend all around him. Can you know what? The only logical explanation of heard. I've not had anybody else through that. One may pundit perspective, the more. I think about. And I'm going to get back to your big can be the only rational explanation for worker. And we're in ten minutes, David that confidence Cuna Guerra injected paid off normal order was restored. And then some I mean, not a city goalie see every week Roach is not wanna pet favorites. It was one of his favorite hits the very reluctantly plays every now, and then what he's he's looking for something else. The Paul from the corner completely wide open. It was actually Murray. I think lost harangue on the corner and LaPorte hammers it into the corner of the net through lob city tribute go. Chris Paul's Riyadh Morris. Teleport's Blake Griffin and back and failed. There was just anxiety and groans that kind of washed out across the terraces, particularly because wall support start to wind up the fans by every so often just stowing up fake Brighton goal celebrations to psych out the desperate reds plan on emotion. Longing. They just completely actors. If Bryan had just scored I create full sense of hope you felt in that moment. The exchange of goals Glen Murray goal, the little taking the lead the city clue in himself. He just felt after this week. We've shed football so drunk right now, and what could the primarily writers and fill in the second. Well, they're going to leash the dragons because city came out second half under strict instructions just blew the door off the hinges leave. No doubt whatsoever about where the title was going to end up. Is it much pepper publish spent ten minutes just with a satellite photo of Glen Murray shot from above, but his bulding patterns on overhead projector this. This is what's humiliated. You fraying in sections three point one two point six four point zero sin chango finish him and finish him. They did they who delivered the coup de Graff forgotten man of the season. Rianne marris Roach the discarded misfit again. Dri of Manchester City season, he's being a law flack from pundits turn in this game. He was an old selection, admittedly and pundits wore berate pet. They wanna see a full in him, and they were hammering away this whole game. How pause Mara's band? It's been selection as backfired, but then. In the sixty four th minute second-half. Nobody could have been complaining about reate Mars performs. He looked like the red Mars of all just lashes, it lashes it into the net Roach. I mean, it was the goalkeeper got his hands to it. But he hit it so hard it actually, I think it's fingers ended up in the back of the net. And it was like, hey, there was there was blood in that netting fell for own season. He seemed like anonymous in new setting where you one diamond among stock polish gems the jewel of the team. We can we count in never seen make that transition into that locker room in this moment. He stepped up found that ball on the edge of the area found his poise more than thing. Made matrix move this over the ball fake Lewis dunk and banged it through my Ryan as you say rather than than past. It was it was like seeing mica Coolio nays. I killing when he smoked Saluto mcklusky and Italian restaurant the moment, he really became a man in that second it became. Clear I believe city only purchase we had more. As only for that moment. The pulley get rid of him. Now gonna win at a stunner from a free kick. Stunner absolute stunned, filling city would just think video extras to their title winning DVD at that point. And instant Dave watching lose himself. He flung himself into the air then dropped onto his haunches. This this weird Lucy demand. Always struggle. So hard to show that he's in control of himself of his emotions of his ideas. Every interview is almost like an affront his being towards Jim lose himself. The lost to me was tomorrow, a bloke toil chases has been an obsession for him. We save it football for him. It's probably been torture. The torture of shoot the shoe of perfection by man possess with a commitment to detail to me, it will probably break others. It would definitely break me that stressed that will that agony that that attention. Into detail. But he summoned the power the will to Mostra remarkable day. He's always like captain Ahab if he actually court movie with ease and then white whale after white where fourteen fourteen wins in a row. End the season and win the Premier League title, Raj. That is we've seen more wins consecutively the Premier League season. But to close the season fourteen wins in a row to clawback livable's five point advantage and end up winning the premise league, it is just staggering that is staggering feet of leadership. And of course, he is human idell Roach human I before he's anything else over football thing. I don't even know where I don't even know where matches city is on that list. But he's a human jury human. He's a Julian. Well, good, be droid could have some droid. Let's let's not rule that out these got some droid, and there, isn't droid overlord somewhere controlling him from some distant planet, but just remarkable Roche. I'm Jay Swenson tweeted alike. Alexander the great with no more places left to conquer dot dot dot dot except MLS. Cute kid city found singing you watching he size. The must say when I heard that as an evident fan. I was a little show on that just purely elated to be included in the in the insult in the conversation. Yes, Liverpool fans, we know we know come June, the first and the Champions League final city fans will be singing a different tune. Let's button Liverpool's Premier League season. I because it was it was remarkable watching the final whistle reaction and failed. Yes, it was not a giddy shell abrasion. They did come second. The neither was at the exhausted. Heartbreak agony of a marathon runner breaking current world record. But still coming second the champions the miracle as tempered again Sam we'll chat about that miracle in a minute. But really has inoculated the team in the funds from the Renji ex essential heart rate, they otherwise feel right? Look, I've made no secret of the fact that on this ultimately the point of playing the primarily point to win trophies. And I'm not going to throw all that out because the remarkable vents of the season. But what I would say it's remarkable is very very few time. In sports. Do you ever? See something new. I haven't seen before. And I have never seen a team the deserves to be lauded more for finishing second in and primarily race or a league race anywhere in the world ever than this Liverpool team. And it is something extraordinary. The only thing I can really compare it to all of sports. Raj is the two thousand eight Wimbledon final when both Nidal and federal desert win it, and you go back to the record books, and you can't even really remember who won that you just remember how incredible that final was that you've got federal Madala who have both so go to one person wins in one person loses. It seems a little bit of relevant. It's so rare in sports, and we've just got this remarkable thing with Liverpool the season where they may end up finishing second in the Premier League. But if you did power rankings at the end of the season to see which is the best English team in football not in the Premier League. It may will be liveable that power rankings the number one team in English football. Having finished second in the Premier League two team. Who may in fact, win the domestic treble is mind blowing their Hartford athletic in the conversation. Absolute to me, they remind me of different team the Netherlands in nineteen seventy four who lost a classic will Cup final against west Germany. We've you hang create leading the total football style, which still burns bright. And they remain in the argument for the greatest team ever. In a way, the Chiltern it winners, west Germany and not almost because of that flaws, which emits brilliant inventiveness, and they unique charisma only made them all the more human. However, the wait for primarily title, which is once considered Liverpool's divine right continues now pass twenty nine years and entire generation a livable funds. And this is extraordinarily if you grow when we did. When they paraded true after trophy after trophy and entire generation of Liverpool fans has never known a little football club, which wins tiles. Boo. York City tweeted to say, we live fans will always have those glorious two minutes after glimmering scored I'll say you'll have more than that Bjork city ninety seven points still coming second when you barely foot wrong one loss one loss a tally of ninety seven points, which would have been enough to win the Premier League noble one of the previous twenty six seasons of the competition, remarkable feat. And I loved of course, loved gigging clubs words post game. The man who talks about winning or failing beautifully as the two options before in life, which I revere and adores life advice Chun's football. He said if I have to sit and tell you all positive things about this team will leave our before the champions the final, and that's the truth and he looked towards next season, which he believes will really be. The true title challenge to come. He says whatever happens in life. If you feel whatever happens is the only chance you have. Then I feel the great words. Hopefully, we'll have a lot more to talk about Liverpool after their Champions League final Roach. But the danger of this whole narrative Rogers that you can be so in love with Liverpool in the way, they played football and yoga tops energy, and all of those positive things is that you fail to give man city that property you, and I sort of feel this a little bit even in the coverage that I read in the newspapers and across media that livable catch the imagination so much in the way that matches city don't we have danger of not speaking in the same. Breathless terms about what Manchester City of cheered in the same way, just a little bit more than we speak about livable in terms of the primarily grace we have to honor them. And by the way, that is what gives Liverpool the respect 'cause livable pushman city every single step of the way in order to perform this. Well, but what this team has done over two seasons. Rush of two seasons. Record is. So remarkable that dominance over football two years in a row. We've just never seen anything like that in modern league history. And I'm not sure we'll ever see it again. Let's get to your first point. There's a loving Liverpool and less love for city. And I think the emotion versus the rationale of football watching livable. Definitely fire the former and city can. I'm a stone in the shoe if city, which is a no city funds. Don't like this being said, but a niece to being knowledge. Well, let's get out the way I city or an expensive project Katori public relations. They call in England the nation washing in terms of the exercise that they are their core. Multiple UEFA investigations we talked about that loss. We definitely playing. Let's say different financial rules than the other teams. And also throw in the fact that they have dragons believe Liverpool were definitely getting the brakes from the press in a way city, all but moving beyond that to the football you, right? Not everyone filled about leg of a season like since Boxing Day play nineteen eighteen loss one finishing the season. As you've said with fourteen straight wins second most all time perfect run relentless dominant a tribute to how they raise their game almost to perfection, overcoming. And should we? Massive injury losses to Katie bay too. Dino able to unleash a gun do on a Sunday or even a marriage off the bench. Dave, but to go back to back to defend that title, the first successful toll defense in the decade and this remarkable achievement. Let's face it Roach. Every single one of these teams is owned by multi multi multi multi millionaires, probably billionaires when he put it all together, everyone's wage Bill is absolutely massive. It's not like liveable or by a bunch of bricklayers messages on by sovereign wealth. Everybody is spending ludicrous ludicrous amounts of money at the top end of this table. Can we take a moment for him fourth manager ever of the ceramics? Joe shea an awesome Venga to multiple Premier League titles three titles. We bought three bundles league titles were buying now to Premier League titles. Manchester City to me, I know you look at those teams Boston with messy. People everybody in Germany, wasn't a half American Manchester City piles of cash to me they display that still haunted. Do what he does to harness the squad developers to mold a bunch of premadonna individuals to his collective will vision and to avoid complacency in a title defense. Best manager in the world. David for me, look what he's one. He's one everywhere. Wrought she's won the league in more countries than I existed in the United Nations. It was crazy. And he's done it by. Remember those first season criticisms of like he possibly win with this style in the Premier League. He'd have to adapt by the way, he has a debt at a little this is a city team. You just look at the way they scoot over their goals in this final weekend of the season. And he's adapted a bit bit more direct. There's a little bit more still to this team. It feels to me than there was right at the right of the star. He's had to adapt without arguably his best plant having debris for most of this season. And I think he's done a remarkable job. Look at the development of players look what he's done to Raheem, sterling Raheem, sterling. He was you know, I hate to say this word, but I think it's true is he was the butt of jokes. In terms of his inability to finish his profligacy. His inability to find the final ball for much of his career. How far he has come along under pet is a banality fantastic medicine fantastic for inland. He's done so much. So well, he's improved the quality of all of English football. Not just mentioned city. And I think he's done it with certain with certain plus with a certain dignity and certain intelligence a certain respect for the English game. Which which I truly admire so let's just say we agree is the best manager in the world with less than three Gs in his name at my punches achievement the motion in my clumps transformational powers but for sustained excellence, which is almost impossible in the primarily all pet open Kan city now become. And I'm not making this up new Liverpool found this did used to happen. What Liverpool were in the nineteen eighty s or ceramics Ferguson, ever Manchester United when the trophy almost seem contractually obliged to end up being paraded Old Trafford considering become that David just did nested power win more primarily titles with this with the squad and with this manager, and it's very hard. They are the gold standard going into next season. They are the number one seeds. They are the team that you've got to look out manager team squad experience, surely very little work. They've got to go and do to improve that squad. I don't really know what they do to improve. It. Get Katy back. It'd be the would be the number one goal, but they got to be the favorites going into next season. And you don't really see it with the not the wealth. But also the organization of this lump behind them with how great their academy is you don't see this falling off much. Yeah. I exchange emails with the Houston Rockets. GM Muri just after they were told by. The warriors. And he said essentially just was the war is just better. And in the same way. I thought about that what you meant Chester city, just so much better. I don't know how you catch them to some degree. They have to win the mine themselves like a pug Belykh transfer. Just Alexis Sanchez at these stabilizes locker room and the club. The I think about that even listening to myself now wherever you think about Manchester City, they are so well run the scout. So well, the psychological tests they perform on the players, evidently. I find it hard to conceive of I will say the only hope a tape from city season the only possible floor. The only thing I can gives me hope as a fan of another team is peps Connie hood, never really became a thing. David become a thing for him. I mean, this is going to be a very wealthy, man. And he says the same out that again, and again, and again this brand in all of their celebrations. They did a celebration last night, ten o'clock at Manchester. The team assistance was still in Nike on brand tracksuit tops the players to a person or where in the new night. He release of the champion. He never used to see him firmly football. But no pet kept the car the hood on his covered in Champaign. You only one button done up by the end looking very shoveled his commitment to this Kony hood. And the fact that we do not see similar Cardi who dole ever lower Manhattan dodge. What gives me solace, David? If was really as dominant as he thinks he is that signature sweater should be everywhere should be the new von Dutch truck. David twig, and I'm holding onto it. We should know Brighton sack. Chris shootin the smoothing as we should just last week club by the full of the season and Huhne's inability to make the best out of almost all of his new pricey signings. One of those rare occurrences where really seemed as if the manager at led the club to promotion naturally reached the end of his cycle. He remains beloved by all and we wish both parties onwards and upwards for the season to come come on you. She goes most of the other games played yesterday were purely formality, but despite already knowing they'll finish six as we already mentioned majesty United again managing to make headlines by losing to nil at home to already relegated carded city. Yeah. We spent enough time analyzing the second dog this United fans of experience inside one season. But this loss against Cardiff relegated near walnut card if new level of pitiful, really soft goals, conceded fifty. Games clean sheet. Two wins from the last thirty or while city, which winning winning winning pumper and the being heckled by his own fans. Alexis for credit, and reinforcing his grip on the worst transfer of the modern period, which has one of the most hotly contested titles involved in football right now and this against team that thrash five one and this first game back ole looks lost bewildered won the still going to be Manchester. United manager in your mind this time next season David God. I thought you're going to say to begin the season. The beginning of the season next season. I'm not gonna say it's gotta be fifty fifty jenness ties very generous, very generous, especially in the United fans who ended the season singing marinas, right? The buddha. Shite we all hate would would we love heated. But we hate the Claes's Wayne may have written that poetry garden journalist, David Cone tweeted after Liverpool reach champions e final livable's revival, and the US Ona's f s j no money taken out loaned in one hundred and forty three million to rebuild the main stand higher top coach with modern structure recruited, great players money. Anointed on the US owners, the glazes taken one point three billion dollars out more every year. Put no money in. These are my words not hairs every empire. Full fella. Monka a couple of quick other point snow. Oh god. Love the fresh off in the way when not any away with I to be. Here in the volunteer Moustapha this season, very close to that willy Wonka. Golden ticket engines at the Champions League after all and it on no eight double throw Burma young gave me three way tie in the race. For the golden boot sharing on twenty two goals with Liverpool saudi-omani mo- seller three African players than good particular. Kufa mo- though, Dave malign for his nine game goal drought. He was fantastic. Again this year to season one the three times the goal never seen that before. But they all pale in comparison of Pune tangles again. Chelsea third leak of final Europa league. Final coming not bad for season crisis transfer cetera et cetera. Champions London Roach. I love you over the London. Chelsea. Friends. The last quarter of the season as been like spent just decoding Edens odes intentions. He winked when talking about next season when he was being interviewed by the BBC east going, then he was photographed by the club as of next season's kit launch. He's staying he said I've made my decision, but it's not just about told the club a couple of weeks ago with a wanted. It's not happen though. I'm still waiting the funds awaiting oh you braced for post as our Chelsea reality. David I'm braced for and let me tell you what the posters. It will be Assad gone the probably Hudson door goes well because Sarah doesn't rate him. He'll look look at pulisic, but he won't like him won't get one play during preseason. And instead he'll probably have Zappa Koster filling in playing the role next season who the F knows Roach. It's just I have. No, I've so little I believe we finished. It'll be Sapard Kosta Zappa constable play before pulisic he loved to be invited. You meet the behind the scenes Chelsea can a hard knocks preseason to film where we could see we could be that with chemists pointed at Christian politic when Sarah gives image first cigarette and forces him to smoke it. On this kid. What is it? Shut up to I say, I will say we're gonna take to police it. What's your name on the field before the game doorman saying goodbye to the dorm and faithful? Remarkable. Whether I watched this is an American eight twenty year old American we shouldn't take for granted. The kinda love the five years. He's kind of forge that I will say is probably didn't intrigue and does he would have wanted McLennan individual perspective. But the challenge of Chelsea primly football. Now await bring you on and the divided loyalties. It's going to create full you listeners in America. Support the Premier League teams not Chelsea it's going to be very testing season of loyalties next year. They huge respect to what foot and have aggressee season won the ball mirth who we now take for granted there's primarily fixtures, which in itself is extraordinarily last. Farewell, Danny Simpson and Shinji Okazaki handful of players now just left for not fairy tale two thousand sixteen tail end of an era for happily because in broad we trust and Everton. They we burned up their season last week. I did get a kick out of all the tweets from GOP's at the Spurs game. That rubber meaningless game this week. I'm reported at pond of YES tweeted, I'm out the game directly above the evidence supports that passion is amazing that passion for Manchester City and dumbs Curto tweeted a month and allow the Evanston funds. Go was singing to Tottenham cheering them on to beat Liverpool in the final. I was way Mooney told me on our pod. Dave. Oh, he shed on Friday. If Liverpool win the league, he was going to go to the beach a hole in that beach and stick his head in it. I find the evidence greatest glory this season was singing Wonderwall throughout the Spurs game. Tomorrow Liverpool's failure to win the title again. And then we're gonna have a party. We're gonna have a party. We're gonna have a party when them win the pettiest pleasures can be the greatest life pleasures. They even sodium. I Roach should also congratulate Crystal Palace road on their highest ever primarily points. Total forty nine points a remarkable finish. To this season. After of course, they managed to be both in a relegation battle again and get the most points they've ever gotten the Premier League remarkable turnaround thin line between Levin. Hey, and it's a thin line between relegation unbelievable glowing wills happy back was a question. We're a lot by Crystal Palace point. Jeff, oh, Ps Dave you insight from Mark nobles post-game pie. What would you say? I think he'll be back. But I just. That's a different question. That's different question. Honestly, I think that the team would have most likely gone to Chelsea with the transfer ban. I think he probably can't go there. And this is what I would posit not the world listens to me or listen to this podcast. He does I wonder if we'll could ever play as well anywhere else as he does for Crystal Palace that final gold palace school. He marauded down the left wing, and he was literally the bombers plans for trying to cut him down with their shields and swords it was like an episode of the Las kingdom Roach. And we'll just palace down the left taking every challenge. Could he ever play like that on a ground where he didn't grow up out of his bedroom window seeing the floodlights of I just think he is a palace plan through through? I hope he stays the same point. I wonder if parents have enough money to keep him. It's very very hard thing. We're gonna find out that question next season. David, I think we'll. Okay roach. This has been an unbelievable week of football of life of humanity. Raj a week, we still can't believe actually having two nights of Champions League wonder this came right after man city opened the week on Monday night with that amazing company goal. I Champions League night. Livable rebounded from the dead. Route three nil whole against Barcelona could not stop them. If we'd written that loss, we can know him to believe this. They vaporize the Catalans. In billion rep Saadi and filled with your mate Oreg Roach and Giorgio when album delivering victory the tapestries from ballots will be made of in centuries to come. They might even go back in a flying machine in a time machine centuries. Pasta made them for the future Roach, just when we gills would never drop to the floor harder. Just twenty four hours later Tottenham Hotspur said hold my bare of the falling behind nil. I ex that's three nil aggregate dead and buried again, they showed spirit to nasty and glory to zoom themselves running three goals in the fleet of football of head Lucas Murah to set up June first as an all Premier League Champions League final which will follow the all English Astle versus Chelsea Europa league. Final the big on imbued, beautiful backer Roach. Do is believe what we have seen today. I'm still really stay even hearing you say that Congess again, the elect trinity in the span of five days we had four classic game. Football. Newcastle to Liverpool three then Vance on companies exclamation point of throb to declawed less the city, then this banks aback champions, the semi phone worthy work. Can we use for them the miracles clemency summed it up best? He says the final will be between the two teams you showed the biggest heart in the whole competition. And it's true. I mean, that's the only way I can try make sense of what we saw in those two semi. Fires was remarkable. To win this Liverpool poetic Klopp paraphrase fast car by Tracy Chapman. We leave tonight you'll live and die this way. By declaring we win tonight or fair beautifully. Stunning. Life advice. And then his team went and told them from limb. Boss, aluminum messy lead Bosman shell show, boss. Luna who experienced the worst second of clamps since a night king and then Spurs summoning from I do not know where resolve determination, the best kind of church hill. Ian, almost and I knew Lucas more as a big student of Churchill's history. This never say die spirit which feet Liverpool or Spurs. Did you think was greater even build to that? I started to say that Spurs this entire Champions League season. I have checked maybe nine times it Spurs was still in the Champions League. Because during the group stage, they seem to be eliminated at every turn and seem to be mathematically capable of groups that has been a feat that is beggar belief, but what Liverpool did on Tuesday night against Barcelona. Having watched football my entire fifty three years, Raj. That is something that I just never. Never thought. I'd see I've seen Chelsea beat Barcelona. I've seen them beat busload Abbas Lona Raj to make Champions League final. But to see boss Lona, humiliated made to look like evidence made to look worse worse than they were made to look like a lower league side appoints during that game Liverpool was so dominant against the boss Lona with so rattled. They look like they didn't even want to be out there on that pitch playing against them. Mannequins boys. Roach is something I never thought I would ever see just for that one night. Just for that one night just for that really that one half I'll say what livable achieved is. I just know words for no words familiar with Tottenham Hotspur on the road without their home fans the bay them on and then the flip within the game against a young aspirational team. Who is trying to think how what am I felt like Tottenham did again? When I watch a young kid in my school at break dancing moves that we'd never seen on the floor before Spurs in. I just barely could. They will I rock in the ring just battered them, improved and blood and screaming. Former boomer the just beating them they couldn't even keep ten men on the bloody failed against former. They were three nil down on that could get speaking to Liverpool players in the past couple of months for miss stumble. Two thousand and five who were three down against Milan. And they said the moment in that game. You know, we won't make make up plus heroes. Whether like three down the line. Let's get back to did you fill it. Where did you seminar tenacity from Jamie Carragher said now thinking about tonight, we wanted a cruel away in shame and fear of humiliation? This was the biggest day of our lives, and we were crapping the bed in front of everybody. How you resolve in those movies? I don't know how Spurs did it. I mean, light Liverpool two thousand and five they found resolve. And then some they were playing so poorly in that first off they couldn't complete a pause in the final third in that first off at the last three men who toiled at times you rent Delhi by his stunned offseason, shiny of head sudden starring Maluku. More which is the dagger finish off the Finnish took Spurs fans. This an unfamiliar place and they deserve. They deserve it. Spurs fans. Navonna we got tears James Milner proving each no robot partner Tina dropping to his knees in agony. Really pouring emotion. Just a minister the tough man as a player just his tears reflection of the brutal stress the seasons. Journeys been for him. They knew place small squad injuries relentless pressure. He's now one game from glory. Why is it happening? Dave. I why is it that these English teams are able to to combat where does that come from? I think it's a little bit of the leadership of these incredible manages these these three men that have led these three incredible clubs. So it's not all homegrown. It's not all English certainly plays on manages. But I think that there is some mental also go into football. And I think that momentum makes you very very difficult to be you know, I've never lost a tennis match. Having a match point. Only achievements in the film. But I had lost matching. Never never never lost a match having had never lost. I've I I've crumbled probably ninety percent of my match point. I go on to lose the game. That's as you meet different protein. But I had lost. I had lost from six one three one forty fifteen. I have lost that match still sits in my brain. There is this thing that happens when you're playing someone who you know, is really good, and you know, has a lot of experience even when you're at that point closing matches so difficult and I felt that I XE game that it's the youth. The very use of the ISD that has been the fountain of their brilliance ended up coming back to hurt them a little bit because it was Tottenham experience. When Tottenham started like have some mental and get back to that game. You could just feel I XE failing like all week totally worthy. And it was to some extent. The pressure of playing in front of their home fans that got them fail. Fire true, footballing microbrewery, producing Frankie diong. Akeem Zayakin Mattias deliver. That's the pronunciation they were paid in this season's champions like eleven wondering Hawkins, Indiana. Which is stunning superpowers. The no one else could understand I feel for Matty reportedly broke down in tears post game. I think he cried because he knew that the world football goat conversation, which was always little Messier Renaldo is now actually between assures between devotchka Rigo. But I mean, we all living in an era of him precedent, fitness just this attacking style pressing booking airing you'd go to clubs. I ex boss alone when they youth axe but never truly pushed defensively in that domestic leagues Maribel. They've been just when they needed to weaken. We domestically blue teams away never had to develop the muscle to kill off games in the crucible of pressure. Great. And what's amazing to me? Not just taught them Liverpool. Champions finalists, also Chelsea in an IT the league finals this for league with no winter break. It's always derided ourselves just brutal competition, we came we out to monopolize this day to take advantage of the other realm. Attribute enters bossom, particularly by all week cycles. It's an amazing feat for the premise that. We should not take for granted. And especially considering the the best primarily side of the season man city on one of those. Teams. I mean, it's just really it is really so sorting nor is one of those teams Man United who have historically been a team that have been so strong. So it's remarkable. It's great for the Premier League. It's great the English football. I think there is going to be a counter reaction to this. I'm sure in Paris and bus Lona and a Munich and Rome there are people thinking about okay? What do we do to stop this English dominance or temporary dominance, but for now, it's wonderful Madrid? And Jeff appease imagery, three she self furnish invasion say they already trying to wrestle up a record number of please to deploy as two hundred thousand English fans are expected to turn up with tickets. And without they always say New Year's Eve is family, which is I'll say champions eve in Madrid is going to be the opposite. It's not just going to be professionals. I believe seventy five percent of the great beer bellies every year rolling around Madrid. Action dog knife Everton fans and arsenal fans heart stomach, but one of these two manages Klopp and portrait who've been so often Mark for coming closer never winning one of them will lift the Champions League magnificent also magnificent. We're now just twenty five days away from the World Cup kicking off in France. And yesterday, the US women defeated South Africa three nail at Levi stadium in California in their first series game. Yes, all hail. Samantha mu. It the six fourth with the hammer for four score goals in both halves, Colin Lloyd added are hundred eight career goal lay on. Yeah. Really well makes the fourth leading score of all time breaking terminal legendary Michelle Akers, rose Lavelle, lively Kelley horror. She wanted the street fight. But the overall performance mediocre. Were fine steeper some of a mediocre. It was it was hard to watch it only flat lacking invention, especially in the final third.
