Solskjaer Out?

"Hello there welcome into the show as a midweek action in the premier league rolled on. I'm Adrienne Haley with Shanghai. His Law and Craig Burley here in the studio. We have Julia wrong for company as well as we look at the three games on Wednesday night in English primarily thought it was going GonNa be Free Home Bank as well. Let's the city in Spurs held up there into the bog in Manchester United dramatically. Failing to do so trashing at Old Trafford at at home to Burnley by two goals to nil and leaves the premier league standings at looking like a good night for spurs who moved up level with Manchester Fifty nine somehow still in fifth place in the top four remain unchanged to city bolstering this amongst the front runners. And so do we stop with the United Greek theater dream. Samal note of nightmares seriously humble. Please stop so they keep on giving it. It's thicker fifteen ram Baux much. We've got them on the ropes again and we'll just lean into them something. Something Joe. Cortez is needs to tell nope and stop this right. These these to stop this because it's just Halston just another unsurprisingly apprising lay woefully desperate performance. I'm sorry say well done Bungay took great Wednes- Leicester on United Limited sites on the day. Xinhua on what they can do but the four four two four foster half won't go into but first half they were so purim possession for most of the staff that kept giving it by the united and you can see the frustration on the side but united couldn't do enough wealth and the wrote ball. Was the sweat what you play to the full box. Particularly one BASAN. And he did some good bowls a great chance for one. Mata Anthony Moscow another occasion should have done better but apart from the neck poll pen goals wasn't exactly diving a boat gold them banks. He's hey the was unsurprisingly embarrassing again and I almost I'm almost lost for what's for less football club and for this football tatum on with us about Gordon banks diving around his heyday. This is almost historically bad. Now listen I said a few weeks ago with the hottest parts of our job has become become finding new ways to describe Manchester United. Because when just when you think or you hope that they're going to tune a corner that they're going to give you something to feel good good about they don't and the disappoint you and I think that that kind of disappointment is getting even even deeper and okay. Yeah you've got new poll you've got Rochford but when only gonNA show is standing on the sidelines post game press conference and seeing seeing that Manchester United kept themselves in the game against Liverpool up to the last king. If that's your tico that was progression and and why why that was so disappointing for me in particular is because when I came into the job I remember seeing that Manchester United need to have players on the field who are willing to take risks. Who are willing to try to play that threaten threadneedle ball who were the top or whatever it may be unthought? That's exactly what united wanted to hear on. The team responded to somehow. In twelve months go from a team that's trying to excite and willing willing to take risks all over the park and winning football games as no regress to Liverpool wistful in front of goal so therefore we kept ourselves in the game up up to the last week. It says a deep me about this football club and in particular this focus just quickly so cynthia boy saw all great start just before we came on air from Dinu story and England journalists since so Scott took over united have one fewer league games than bummbly. uh-huh that's that can tell the story Burnley's last winning all traffic in the English top-flight Julie a month before the Cuban missile crisis In nineteen sixty two we keep on hearing Ali. GonNa so shot is safe. Julie but patients must be wearing dramatically thin at least for the for the owners enough at Woodward's off the Iraqi declared. Maybe Alex Ferguson. Who are some points and you know? He's he's in the stands for most home games pretty much every home game. He was also a Liverpool at the weekend and he probably lids. It's maybe by the situation and for the fans as well. You have to feel for them because it's nauseous researcher but for the last six years this has been a dreadful football club but but before he safe. I can confirm that you again. And and he safe because one of the reasons that the on the stock market the the most a united shares somehow gone up in the last five weeks despite the poor things that we've seen on the page the steel by far some the stakes for football club the highest in the world by now so the money you still coming in. There's no problem by that for the Glazer family and for Edwards and on that on that side everything is good for for source care probably okay. Because he's former teammates in media here in England that probably still going to support him and tell us in his more time the club. We've said that they will back him up. Transfer window although we have seen nothing yet in this generally when he's crooked eye needs plays and he himself probably said that they were sending the game against against Liverpool at the weekend because they were only one down and that must've city always fields and very strong team against them in the leaker. Which means that they're going they're going forward? They're moving forward. It's so I'm not sure right. Now is a big mess from book ever. Ms Yesterday show Joe Roll over the because we had a full mall knee star analyst analyst rating she appraise the Roi was was was was the gold five-star. Because you know the present Reisen and the value if the club for the PAC for shareholders whilst what's happening on the football field A Shambhu the debiting transfers again Bruna Fernandez is still Is still there. And the melting pot has not Hartman. They want more money United Willing to pay the stadium field but bottom line. That is the basics again. They lost a set piece. Ultra unfilled the weekend. And guess what when you play one of the things. The Grit facets of their game him as the basics. The set sees the attacking the ball and they couldn't cope and Harry Maguire. When would and then school the great goal? They paid the penalty if a lot less than me and Turkovsky performance of till fashion centre-half blood uh-huh and gods and snow. They wanted to talk about ball and had the basics. I don't see any of that from united. Never mind the quality so disastrous night for a little better for for Spurs Shankar. They got a late winner from the Ming Song to get over the line against Norwich city. It was this. Was this convincing from Joel. Merino team not overly convincing US renewed when you consider the opposition but Norwich. I've shown that they have a surprise in them and once they it goes back to one one you just wonder about food and especially given how much they've been flagging over recent weeks themselves but song got the winner thanks apparently deflection. That is getting three points as a variety no and while we still talk about Manchester United it and how poor they are. They're in Fifth Chelsea. Who seemed to keep wanting to shoot themselves in the first and most convincing of transfer windows themselves you still within touching distance and the spin that again is not living up to their own their own expectation? I think this would fall under the label. Much watch needed win. Well especially Chelsea drop in points Last night they just had to get the job. Done questioning shocks the another not convincing But most of these teams have been pre it by the way one of the things you can gauge. By as the bean who have been on a great run elaborations against wolves the hobbit on a great run. But they've tried to Jackson and Ralph Ralph Hodgson Hotel at this season or two and a half months ago. The funds wanted him out the fines. It was a horrible done beaten all of a sudden. So I'm ten UNIN touching distance of the United States and the talk of this world and I the thing that tells a story about. These clubs are Compared to where clearly lester but more so steady and liberal talking off Leicester after a couple of defeats scenario. Big Big Win for them against your hammers Own Desperate need of points this league table and see where West. I'm just bought him three only by goal difference for less than expected result. I think the issue for them. The consent for them is body themselves and adding to a back injury list that you just wonder if Leszek and cope with day for me are the third best football team in the league and but can the is their squad deep enough to to deal with injuries. That's the big concern for them. Did he was a engineer. Kim Medical Engines these engines but Brennan Rojas after the game. I think said it doesn't seem to CD's and but this amending the toll. Four on the other side David Moyes said well what I do. I get Wednes- well. I'm sorry but not with escorted players and Westheimer another club that they are another club. That think let's just keep hiring hiring and firing managers solution and actually played recruitment as well as a recruitment a soper. And so benny bit another clubs in the position of governor rethink the Hawk structure and ownership Well if you ever miss an edition of the show we have the audio podcast available bowl every day on the website. So Joel's apparently bacelona. IRA era chasing some cover for the injured. Luis Suarez. Couple of strike is on their radar. Rodrigo Marino from valentia perhaps more. Interestingly we're hearing they're tracking Abang from awesome what can you tell us yes oh told the. ESPN FC and we. We reported it on the website on the on Wednesday about the two targets for Rodrigo. Merano this probably that they've been looking for a long time. He's obviously a Spanish International. He knows they're doing very well. They know him very what as well and he was very aclu to joining us in the summer and in the end I think they you almost happen and just happen for for muscle of hours or days but he was very close to leaving Valencia who clubbing turmoil at the time. If you remember so I think the door open for him to Valencia and it could be an interesting one embassador enough Obama Obama young. They've always liked him for a long time. I think people are declared of every walk. A clinical striker is obviously. He's only only has eighteen. Months wants left on his current contract. Our snow so maybe they're thinking that evening John Negotiating with with also they could get a decent price for he also would expect us to just not for sale. And then maybe revisited. In the summer I don't know but there's only the two players that they are looking got the most not to replace like you said swallows at least to deputise for surveys through these is injury and then come next season maybe Suarez. He's not getting any younger. Maybe having then to fighting for that position as a as the clubs and send a strike around the globe so it to to to to targets that we have to keep a close eye on you have to imagine Asta will do everything that well to prevent trump has depends how much of the itchy feet scenario. The Obama young guests. No one's made comments hence recently. Excuse me he is the best player clearly the best goalscorer but listen. I'll tell you it's going to have to try and and sell the club to them if that's the case but even when offs nowhere in the poem another clubs in the primarily when the boss alone us come call and is is how to stop a player from wanting to go to that club. Never Mind when your club is having the problems that it's having like Asahara notes even more difficult so I get the feeling island of Barcelona want to make this happen is going to be a struggle for personal and it's been pointed out. He has his former Bercy. Dortmund teammates already at Barcelona in TD. uh-huh Bella Yeah I listen I wanNA talk to them. That is all things can be bananas area. But if you're young you quite clearly the best player on their books I've always said that. Measure Z will continue to be their causes them a problem in terms of offering you contracts. So if you if you are asking for a new contract you want to be on methodism money. I'm not sure that also can can afford that at the same time and amazingly we are talking about as-as best player contract running out yet again. I mean how many times have we been seeing this over the last five or six years. Alexis scientists residues. You'll I mean even before that vampish leaving it amazes me. Hope poorly also running their business even shoe whether it's eighteen months old twenty eight months as Craig rightly pointed sewed. When Boston or comes calling as a player you listen? Meanwhile Gills a lot of interest in the Uruguayan Strike Edison Cavani. It appears as though he's leaning towards Athletic Madrid rather than a move to the premier league. Yes we should surprise that the premier league. He's no no interest interesting to him is because he has is is very mercer. Its own on a move. He wants to work with you. Go Simoni Humidity Mooney Alexia Milanez try to sign him for the last three or four years and not everything is agreed between Kanye medical. Madrid's he's not going to let doc go to try and start again go shading with much to the united again. No offense to those premier league clubs but right now you only wants to go to spend and only wants to go to Madrid great peers. You Open the door on Sunday. I expect this one to go through faculty co author which was news. I think between fifteen and twenty and he's gone not surprised I'm not surprised by the Premier League is not the bill bill and Endo for some of these players. Some people may think as but as an athletic from these Spanish speaker. It's it's very easy for Cavani yet. United and Chelsea fans will wonder what might be looks like. He's on his way. We'll be back tomorrow. We'll I'll have a livable game. Derivative your member there in primarily janke against wards gills. We took plenty about on-field stagnation hope of the show all failed. They seem to be stagnates. What's going on with Berta Fernandez? This has been going on for weeks leaks and doesn't seem to be going anywhere Sporting Lisbon. Yes you ride them in. Negotiations are still taking place between between the two clubs around for the transfer fee. I guess in the right way trying to get as much money as possible for a player who is one very important to them and to clearly has a very high value whether you like him or no were you whether you think he's worth all that money or no is still sporting still believe that they can get seventy seventy million euros for him from while we're still this morning. The latest bed and folk from what was reported in Portugal today the latest been much. The united was fifty five million in euros plus ten million euros in bonuses which we still need to be. Sure of the expectation are sporting. But you're getting close. An eye thing there will be an agreement somewhere around amounts between sixty five and seventy a pretty soon. If that's why united wanted you. Have you have to wonder really clearly. They need some creativity in midfield. Clearly they need someone like an on again he's not Messier Renaldo. But he's a vibrant player. And maybe you you have to pay over the odds because one is generally because to the sporting with with with Portuguese club. It's always hard to negotiate with those clubs. Because that's what they do. They're selling selling league in the selling market. And because there's has been linked for so long we the move to Munster United. I could find happen. And they're not gonNA make any any present is into united so it's a hard one but they need someone like him and they're getting closer. There's just need to just be more on the table and I think this one could happen. They almost and get this over the line. Don't they greg to go to get the go to transfer over the lane and quick You know otherwise. They're just going to keep keep going in the wrong direction. The bottom line is here. Everybody knows my united are desperate and It depends this bolting are for for the cash and whether they can hold out for the money that they absolutely want so. It's a game of bluff but in terms of the plant himself Yes Manchester United crying out for quality players in several positions in the prices. Already gone way up from where it was spurs who is linked with over the summer. But this I'm on that note known as they're trying to hide but I think the need is great and especially in January transfer window way. It's always a little bit difficult to Fi- to find quality Manchester United. How Hsun that for players that they want Harry Maguire? They're going to pay the club's asking price. I just don't think that Manchester United's Boggling Ogling Hondas that Strom right now you to get the is in you have to pay the asking price otherwise you continue to just kind of tread water and it becomes even more difficult if other clubs shoe kind of interest. Julian they've also been linked with a sixteen year old telemarketing. Tell us about him. Billing pulling him out Birmingham who is who is a fantastic talent. You don't you don't play in the championship. And how Tough League is sixteen and not just super talented. He he's been good for Birmingham England youth teams as well and clearly is a future ahead of him if he stays grounded and if he keeps working auto he's been doing the last eighteen month really. The prime with him is that because he's so young he's not going to solve any of united's problems or issues right now but he certainly fits in united trying to do now. Wishing signing those much younger players like one besides belie Daniel James like him as well and and you know them through four for someone as young guys him a lease giving them that platform to them really explode and and showcase all their talents. I think again from what we've been saying united neither quick fix now they need someone who will have an impact now who will make a difference for the second part of this season and last sixteen. He's not going to do that right now. While Gills with Harry Kane sidelined for the foreseeable future we. His Spurs are in the market for a strike. What can you tell us? Yeah I think the strikeout route switch. It is a very close to joining Spurs Spurs. Obviously wanting to game against Norwich which off the way tonight and then tomorrow focus more on that but interestingly was was taken out of the squad that played in the Spanish Cup for example on it and it looks like this one could could go over the line routes which already thinking about who they could bring in to replace him so he's twenty eight. He's a big Guy He's one meter ninety. I think he's not. Maybe the most prolific goal scorer two years ago is called Fifteen Gordon Elliott. which is very good? I think he had twelve last season. And he's on eight for for the first half of this season base- someone as a handful for the opposition. He can also be a big part in the play. Holds the ball. Well he's I think he's movement. He's quite clever. So it'd be an interesting signing for spurs considering the simple hurricane would come back and we didn't do it for example. We'll we've become the second Stryker in the pecking. The older Johnson. Okay but your intake I wouldn't. It maintains a physical played himself Amongst all Oh the other faucets do need somebody. WHO's a focal point? I mean the more plain more of them at once for being a focal point with these players can meet runs off awful on the need to get some oversleeping. Somebody like Yovich. I felt was would be a good fit but marinas Real Madrid. Maybe that works. You can see much more gills on the Gavin jewels. podcast you can hear it by the ESPN pod center and Apple podcasts. The place to go for that Kilian mbappe pay at a charity event was anti liberal said what livable do in this moment is amazing. Seizing they are like a machine. They have found a rhythm singing the praises of your clumps men Julianne can we stop the killing. MVP to live a Paul rooms right here and now all you started a long time ago at Liverpool especially with Nike being the club shirt sponsor for for next season or shut. May If you want to pay being one of the key Nike Briars as well in Liverpool supporters minds. This is already being put together. And it's coming. Listen is is pretty is important if Liverpool can pay the three hundred million euros sale maybe three fifty with bonuses put on the table which is what appears you will ask anyone for him to sign him by if you put can afford that. If they can put on the table plunge give him the way he wants. He would consider that offer every single day of the week because yes remedies dream and we've talked a lot about that on the show and one day there's a certainty that he would play the bill auto Madrid but he's only twenty one years of age so there's plenty of time for him to go and play in Madrid. One day the fact that you also would like to play in the Premier League one there too and as we've seen is some of the interview that he did this week he's English is great and Liverpool obviously is very attractive proposition for any top play in the world right now with what they're putting together and and the project of Jurgen Klopp and everyone else the of course somebody would be very interested but again if they can't put that money down on the table for. There's no way you could go there. What are we taking right? Come on we've taken two plus two run of we figured out that walks so like four point eight ten getting on for five thing that would do to livable stock price. Though it's hard not to is hard for anybody unless unless you're living in a miles not realize bright with machine and you can in Milem without forcing trans will return Jason Story. I'm sure the future. We'll be answering your questions as we always do on extra time you send them invite twitter. We do our best thanks to answer you say on the huge so file this under unusual football fan behavior this is in Liana uh-huh protest taking place. Nothing unusual with that but what is unusual is the purchase was about a restaurant restaurant Leon had one of his Michelin Stars. Taking a war laid to this outbreak approaches for the Leo fans. Surely in what can you tell us about this. We have with the bonus saying like no one will ever take away one of your stars in the heart of the unit of the people from your own. You know how much food is important in that in that Paul how France and he's the gastro me as we call it in France so poor booker's who is who is a world renowned chef. Jeff has a few restaurants everywhere but especially in new on lost of Michigan. Signed the this week unfortunately for him went down from three to two and I made a lot of people really I angry and especially the Olympic unit fans are the stage There's a big link as well between Baku's and the and the club and the football club itself for example before every Champions League match your host whoever they play against hosts their directors and president and CEO in Paul Bocuse restaurant. So so you know even even for the club is good that Paul Burke's Sylla's Michelin stars etc.. So I like that kind of protest French and you no you can walk us but yeah it was it was from the heart I think styles. y'All sorry cricket. We never did anything less than three stars. I Guess Vive La Difference. Manchester United Fans would love to have that appropriate super restaurant. Boy Really Good Restaurants Schiller take we'll find John McCain what Michelin Star restaurant and we go out of the game. That's all that will do it for today. Thanks the Juliet Craig. At jacket will see next time an abbreviated. She'd version of extra time by the standards being recently sex. Somebody's on this clearly. has pledged to be turned turned on just the four questions. But they're good. Once Nathan. Rachel Surprise I. Just don't see us. You're actually have good questions today. Football related I can tell you Nathan kicked off. Do you guys honestly think any other manager would improve this mentioned yes or are you just just gonNa use this as another opportunity to take shots. Not only has job to improve this Manchester United Dinnie have what is this in speed. Transfer Window now improve this Manchester United. That's partly joke. I'm positive criticism. To how much better would they be under Yogi in cloth this. This is a better this this eleven at this. I think the point is this right through talking about this. You'll have known my history the chance to win I'm I I think I think it'd be a lot better because they'd have an identity and still lose quite love because they do have as much as associated with reunited but they have an identity and they have a way of playing that everybody would know. I think a F. I.. Real pull out. There would be above jokes but it won't be an race. I'm a long way but Shaq said they would hop scripture. It would be on the training ground. A New Tokyo Liverpool Liz. The train liquors in game changed very focused on split comes across Jo. Joel say I know you talked about this on the show it pays repeating. You talked about the share price. Surely the comes a point where that doesn't matter. It's what happens is on the field. No I would like to say yes. You know he's GonNa get fired and shoot get fighted. He's not gonNA get fired he would be there and to the end of the season you will be that probably next season as well and and it just don't see the way we see that's the thing he's got worse average point then dive in moist than we've on hot and Marino. He's not more familiar much since he joined in a year ago. Like it'd be more than a year ago. He's got more than is worn and you know he's going to finish is crazy crazy. So the not lining anyone up Jill's even behind the scenes things secretly nor lining up in the sense like okay in March or airport. Or you have someone my income over and you know let's talk. Let's talk with someone books. Something in place and let's discuss the contract with another manager. I don't think so I think they are wear like every single club of okay. What can we do next? Who could we get? What kind of direction? We want to go to like everyone else in the world if you run a football club while at least I hope they do Right now he sold about all sorts skier and again as we said generally back up in the summer getting removed time. I think the wrong choice. But that's their choice at the moment. But if they lost say and I totally agree. Julius almost laughing the supports us from within within the boardroom from members but officials say that next six games straight or something that might have to make a decision. What will happen as As the the topsy turvy pendulum will just swinging away from bythe average to have this sir. All I'll always just be enough to keep would would and the glazes from making that decision and they'll just use as an excuse to say. Well we're going to do something a little bit better performances come against the better teams probably beat Chelsea in a couple of weeks. which wasn't surprising? You're absolutely right in that respect. I think you Kinda live up to the building that they do much big boys fairly well but you know that's all well and good. It's there's no publicity just jump. Let's bill for questions which keep this show I would. I would suggest and I might be wrong. Is that most most of the big corporate shareholders of mine united others inorder Tabu football on hence when club is making money money then ultimately investment in the united personally this this very impressed by your financial knowledge aerobic or put another way. If if I'm investing pass. Is that a lot of money taken up to do this job right. Wasn't that Nice job. I won't be forced but what was happening. I feel as long as there was no danger to that capital and it was going to continue to grow which by the way. Yeah I think we should introduce a new business segment to the show. By the way Greg Tokes return on investment and we have no more bullets boiling point we could have for it as inflection bullies Bloomberg business bringing go bringing up by decided when talking about performing at the moment Perform he gets the top teams. I mentioned Andy Windy at why did Ram Madrid in Boston. Struggle against third tier teams. Today we saw the Action in the Copa Day rate despite playing strong teams Julian Julianne. You want to weigh in on this is just magically. Cop isn't it had this. It'd be dot is playing away from home in usually more stadium depiction Asian always being great is the lack of motivation. no offense to the smartest side when you are a big club and big players and you have to go to those games it's not as motivating red Madrid in the in La Liga for sure. They always try to do the job and and usually they're professional special. Northland they do so if you look at it tonight actually hasn't been that kind of set in in in the Spanish Cup finished the toward but he softened not not always easy because the other team on the other hand I very aggressive and intense and again your face and all of that show then they. They're very he's again so World Cup final these boys really cleanly that. DJ IN A beef fruit. It was raining and I it because they thought they were going there for sunshine. Party and so talking been cup competitions. Fa Cup you go some some of these law league teams Chelsea and Newcastle wherever. It's an eye opener because a lot of giant chain Spain's Camila deaf and that was but I remember going to thanking is he played his he plea good like Bruce uh-huh getting me the longest shock metal studs and getting the money. You know it's GonNa be a long night as mentally as tough as revolt been there and when you do go there you go there with one. pufus wind masset got a job. Done you leave. You don't don't dissect dissected Josie was interesting here in Greece off the game talking about how he liked playing direct style in this sort of encounter if I hear what you're used to Madrid with with you know and it kind of like he's a fight at the game he likes but you could see y the top tim sometimes struggle like the boys have just said this is so different than what they used to in the Jolson Larry. He you returning to this team. Who is a better manager? SOCIA- valverde. Aw Come on mine. You're like slate here in London. The worst as each other. That's why they are to be just one. Hot is directors washing ESPN AFC order time. You're saying those boys on the ESPN NFC. They took a lot of sense. Then the other one is lucky because Kennedy don't have ESPN NFC anyway in Manchester. Aw Aw whatever the glazer lives they. Don't listen to us. So how many points would mention fell verde in Jesse exact same. It's as you get more than those than source cars and he would think more experience visual all right. Finally prompts you four questions before we came on air we're listening to some Somali open played from old trough when he's not off rambling. No so scouters rail listening. I mean often lot lever pill game talkin about our state in the game and not progression. Legitimate Hamam ahead them. I think it was Dez Kelly from bt was interviewed him tonight And he was talking Talkin about as well as well you know. This is only the second game. I think we've lost a whole who've since August and and I'm thinking Oh vega hole he dug in here so he's even he's rattray street. He's just rumbling. No souris toy rambling. No edano Jones be relative because yeah he's shut that Joko. DVD wants to know you guys that Ed best football memory as a kid saw watching the nineteen eighty two world comb. All that I was I was I was eleven years old and we used to watch all the. TV wasn't quite what it was. We got what we call. Dr A is and every game.

I just remember Scotland leading against Brazil and then gun Hamas than The French waste jamming the the body Stone Schumacher Brazil Italy game when when polar Ross is called the yeah there was some news outlets the amazing seventy as you might do it. You might be kind of this. I am a liberal is a K.. To Watch out remember the Games are like eleven at night Seattle. The big self-dealing is right there. it's just a little bit very close to campus.

Baticle conversation she is ex- Harley Davidson exact Turn to be chief soul officer International Speaker bestselling author of the book saw badly car. So welcome to the county five shows Shelley Paxton Bank. Thank you. I'm very excited to be here with you. So ex- Harley Davidson exact. I'm an ex Harley Davidson rider this account so this is one of the many areas that you and I are Solskjaer. Love it remember dating a guy and then we broke up and then I was like I got this t shirts. I nobody's bitch. Get my Harley Desert. Sounds like Harley t shirt I it so like you know you're GonNa do this Outta road on. That's what that's why I think we're soul sisters having a conversation because we don't let other people police down get us down and right now with what's going on around us this this this pandemic and because of everything that you do About being a sole officer talking about the saw what would what's the best advice you can get people right now? I have to tell you. Can I say I love what you said at the beginning of this like the stay positive? There's a November lining here and the advice that I've been giving is that the world really is on Sabbatical right now. We have the opportunity to reset. And reframe what we're doing with our lives and my number one piece of advice is lean into the signal and what that means. Ray Lean into the signal which means like you just said. There's so much noise out there right now as overwhelming and you know where the signal is. It's inside of us. Yes what I'm telling you right now. The best thing they can do were culture addicted to business which is why people are freaking out in their houses right. I'll be on this. I agree with acts like believe me. I still have this every day. But it's like right now. We can practice being still and getting violent and reconnecting with that that little intuitive voice inside us reconnecting with our soul. And what really lights us up and so I just found that now. That they're douse the time right right you. And what life do you WANNA create? There's all kinds of. I've all kinds of exercises that I wrote about in the book and one of them that I think this is a perfect time to do. Is this kind of audit of your life. What are the sole fuels in your life making that really light you up and bring you energy? And what are the sole socks in your life? Those things that are just dragging you down you know. Kinda like the wet blanket on your rights and this is a great time to be asking yourself those questions and kind of taking inventory of what do you want more of and what do you want less of as we come into our new normal and that's really where we're going into into a new normal and what you said about evaluating your life when? I lost my job as a CEO of a corporation. Thirteen years ago I was devastated and I would always be there with the organization but this is not the case anymore and after a lot of Margaritas Walk. Held a little bit there. I had to really. I took it. Chari of WHO? I wasn't what I had to give because I was initially struggling. What do I do? What do I go? The what happens. I was interviewing other positions and because I was a CEO. Just wasn't happening. I had people telling me I was overqualified. I'm like come on. It's just a job but then I had to sit back and say what is it that I do have to offer a wide. You other people see me as being overqualified when I'm not seeing so I had to do that. And it really. It was a call. It a sabbatical and then once I did that once. I realized that I said I'M GONNA have my own business and help other people through this and that's exactly what we're we're at right now and a lot of my clients they're calling and saying. I need to take a break and the back because financially there everybody's like domino effect there being cut back to but my response is you could pay me when you can but we're not going to stop working together because the exact same thing. Yes because what will happen to people to me. I'm looking at the person and what will happen to that person. If we say yeah sure you know we. Don't you go away? I mean that's only for some people that's only going to put them in a darker place rather than there being positive and having people like you and is saying no. We're going to keep going through this and you know when you're ready it or you can. You can love this. I'm I'm curious if you're talking to your clients about this. I've been talking a lot about embracing conscious growth right now. Yes we know that we always grow through hard times yet. The fact whether we choose to intentionally and consciously grow is a whole different deal have been asking clients and everybody around me how. How do you want to intentionally grow or consciously great through this period because of four intentional about it we can create? What we want is now the time to start that blog. That you've been saying he wanted to forever is now the time to start outlining that book. You've always wanted to write his now the time to start. Maybe mapping out your own business like you just about right. It's like Oh. This is time to fully pivot. I'll just start doing the background wore. These are really powerful times to invest in the possibility of our future selves. Right right and like you said the background work because it takes time to do that and there are so many arms to to creating your business now that you have the time. Use that time to to do that as long as the other thing that you said. This is the very beginning thing I've been saying is like choose this time to create versus consume I get me. I love a good Netflix. Binge like the rest of us and I and I did that last night so I was watching the same show the ones that everybody's talking about right the I I really like. I'm I'm getting myself in this mindset to like this is a really people are saying I'm bored. I'm cleaning my house. One hundred fifty and I'm like actually you know what I'm not bored. What would it look like to lean into Boorda right to just slow down and quiet down about what you WANNA create? Maybe even learn a new language had so many people say to me like I want to learn a new skill set. Like maybe you had to learn how to videos you can edit your own video whatever it is right whatever whatever it is learn something new making very conscious effort to learn something new. Why you have this time to do it. The whole thing like you said I court where where. We're so busy sometimes being busy and now that we have all this extra time. We're like what am I doing wrong? Why you know there's something wrong. We're too busy night culture. We are and this. I talk about this new book too because that was a big wake up call for me. Even when I walked away from Harley I Chris Myself chief soul officer of my life would I start to do a filled up my calendar facts all day long every day appointments and meetings and this and whatever right right happy hours. I did all the things and I was like. Oh now I get it looking inward or this thing. I'm just scenario right down to save cheating. The people are saying about that and I intentionally made sure that I didn't binge but I still get up every morning going for a walk. We live by along. I don't know how many mild trailer it's too long. I have to turn around halfway and my husband at we go out so even yesterday I did I was my afternoon is going to Binge Watch a movie and he kept saying to walk join and I was like after me after the Yup good for. You think we don't like you and I were talking about this before we started recording but we have to let ourselves feel all the fields yes right and so there are GonNa be times. I mean not not just now in a pandemic but always always though what allow yourself to ride that roller coaster say you? I need in this moment when actually when my favorite concepts and I learned this from Brunei Brown I did some training and certification with her searching. Saint Burnett Right And there's a whole concept around permission slips since so I carried it into my work and I think maybe it will be helpful for people right now to remind like I use your show you I always have orange posted notes. Oranges my caller. It's saying and every morning I write myself post it notes like what am I giving myself permission to do feel or maybe not do right in that J. Like maybe you just want to watch a movie instead of going for a walk. Give yourself permission to do that right. And so I do. I do these all the time. And it's always. What am I gonNA give myself permission to do to feel or not to do in order to show up as my most most authentic encourages some today right right and that was me yesterday. I had to give myself permission just to be by myself. 'cause sometimes you just need to be by yourself at my husband and I been joking about this Ad. I said you know it's a really the thing we love each other because I need a break right now from you. Yes and say it right. That's another thing. In fact I was just reading an article that I think we're GONNA PITCH TO MIND body. Green it covers so much of this. It's like you're sometimes like if we're finding ourselves being mindless like there's a reason why am I making the mindless choice of entertainment? Why the mindless choice of grabbing the chicks again in the kitchen Yourself and say how is serving my wellbeing right. What's really going on here because I know for me. I definitely like eat and drink all my emotions right like you know. Am I trying to nome like pain or discomfort or fear and what might be something more mindful? Sometimes it's just asking for what you need in that moment. Yes your partner from your people round you. Whoever right right and you probably our families right because we're home soon. I mean talking to my kids every day. And that's what. He said he goes. We'll go see Stephanie. And my daughter. Who's in North Carolina Military Base? And like can't she can't even because so she can't leave their has special forces and she has orders net to leave while yes so he so yes we chat. Latin this way said. Nah I can't call there a said. Let me be just a little bit of time. I just want to watch a movie. But he's he's so that he's like okay. I'll come back later. Susan movie was over one of the hawk. Yup Right back where we started But you know what you like. You took that time like you sued your soul and your nervous system and it calms you down. We all have to figure out what those things are right. Give I in our back in our bodies. Get Out of our heads right. Do what makes us feel good in that moment? Believe me all about it right actually. That's a perfect juxtaposition right. So it's like I just wanted to sit on my couch and binge-watch something or drains and it's like okay. You know what it's time for me to move your house go out for your wall and right whatever whatever it is and while the movie was going a made Amish cinnamon bread so it was like wholesome sit here just going to sit here. That would not last is minutes in my house. That sounds so amazing. So does it came out of the ever. The lives of their. Who's on the two of US living in the house? Now Oh my gosh so incredible. That is a good example of what I can't have been my house right now. I it's under the weight watchers book. Own Okay No. It's out of the weight watchers book. So it's it's a modified recipe. That's awesome exchequers only like half a teaspoon. Granules an ice substitute with honey. So yes smart. Okay yeah because as part as part of this whole journey clean eating. Hasn't been a big thing for me now. I've gotten all refined sugar and sugar subsidies. All of that stuff out of my diet. Don't really have any bread crackers cookies in my diet anymore. But yeah there are definitely like little binge worthy things right not to know that I have in my house. I just literally sit there. Well you had the little snags when it brings up phone. I put it in there. And that's my snack. Eaten award the net. That's a good super smokeybear. I keeping weight watchers. And so that's what keeps me keeps. That keeps that focus. Let's talk about your book really quickly before we run out of time. I love talking to you. So you have a book published by Simon and Schuster awesome so you have a traditional publishing him saying that for intentionally because we get a lot of questions tonight south publish that today traditional so you have traditional publishing so Very good and it's called soul baticle which is a corporate rebels guide to finding your best life now another reason that we part part of my bio is being a rebel. Yup so you talk about saw as so you which is a framework that you developed to help readers listeners in moving from belief to action in pursuit of truth and authenticity so if you could just break it down a little bit more like what is the whole intent of helping the readers fully embrace that to the non authenticity. I love it. Well I have. We won't have time to go through all these but maybe just as context for the sole process. One of the things I love to talk about is like one of my discoveries on this whole journey I created so bad cold because I was ticked. All the boxes of success right from the from the outside it looked like I had the quote unquote perfect life. Believe me I feel very privileged. I had a lot of good for tonight. Worked for some of the most iconic brands in the world and the last Harley Davidson right who walks away from that but I realized that I was feeling empty inside emotionally spiritually more bankrupt and so I created this thing all I knew I was going to take one step forward. I was GONNA leave. I didn't know for how long I didn't know if I would ever come back to corporate America go back to America and I wanted to get back in touch and in in alignment with my soul and really understand myself in. What is my pal worded? So I think the misnomer for people's you hear so battle it sounds like Oh that means leaving my job and originally thought that's what it did mean but now I recognize that actually means finding yourself rather than that's the flip of looking forward rather than looking backwards. Yeah and it's looking inward versus outward. I think so much of our lives like we're conditioned to be looking for validation and accolades all of these things from the outside. I mean you know this well from your corporate life right And it's not just corporate life that does this but it's it's definitely very prevalent in corporate life. He started. I had a whole series of things happen. I don't have to talk about now but it's like I was a wakeup call for me that it's like I was dying a little bit on the inside can so I went on this journey. I said I'm becoming chief. Soul officer of my own life. My job is to nurture my soul and they nourish it and acknowledge it and love it and listen to it. What is it wanted. Tell me and then just take one baby step at a time right love it and so now I see this in this will set up the sole process. Now I see this. As a way of being it's living and leading more authentically more credulously and more on purpose in our lives ness and I totally understand it. I mean when I when I left corporate. I was devastated because it wasn't my choice at the time but now looking thirteen years later I say just like what. You're exactly what you're saying when I was there I actually was very Wasn't authentic being me. I really did lose my soul into what I was pretty organization and the challenge Initially was that I lost that identity. I was able to get through that identity and break that wall get to the other side it completely open. Open me up to what was happening than to who I really am. Yes yes and so on that note. Exactly one of things I love to say is like the commandment of being a chief soul officer because that's my whole mission. I want everybody to take this title on and just Accu give themselves permission for what they WanNa need and to realize that. Authenticity is the truest form of rebellion the S. And that's exactly what you were just describing. So that's what I discovered along the way it so when I wanNA help people do with with this book telling my story. I want them to be able to reflect on their story. And so I've created this soul framework in soil in this case the acronym stands for show up mate right like let's show up for ourselves looking a big stop playing small a lower souls to take up space right at the second always own it right. We has to be like we have to repeat the truth again and again until we believe in possible. We're actually the first sale of we believe it. No one else lutely absolutely. It's like get rid of any commitments. Yeah get rid of any competing stories you know evict language. That's not empowering so use language like I get to I can I want to? There's a hint portion of my book. That's called shooting over myself matches right so it's like I should do this. I should which always means what it means. We're following in somebody else's Ray. We're trying to live into somebody else's expectation. You know my story all too well actually right now. This is another many executives would say that like nobody story too. Well but yes you that and it's not going to say throat it's not just a corporate Inc It's part of our expectations. What's expected us? Yeah it's the conditioning. Right is currently Lennon Clinton. Doyle talks about this really beautifully in her new book untamed. But it is like this is my version of talking about like how do we unlearn those things and right next with who we are like get? Let's be wire let's unlearn and so the you in in the framework is unleash it right. This is where we put clear powerful intentions into the universe. And I I love this because this is like an share your truth with anybody who can support you inspire. You Mentor you tight. Start taking right like one small step towards living into this and that leads you to the L. Which is live it and I think the most important piece is. Live it before you're ready. Oh right yes so often were like will. I'll be ready when all be happy when we were so good at this as I was going back and reflecting I realized I was doing it. Left right and center. It's like Oh we'll win. The kids are all gone and I have enough money. I'll to thing I want to do. And it's like we don't know how much time we have Mary. Oliver's one wild and precious life right right right we don't we don't know I mean again. Look what's what's happening around us right now. I mean you just you just don't now and you get stuck. No I find so many people they they get stuck in the plan like planning the plan and like you said just you know and I always say just go after it in go after the becomes a point where you have to stop refining. The you have to have a plan the plan but you don't have to refinance it so many times until you feel that you got absolutely perfectly right. Yeah progress over perfection of every day because guess what when you go out there you change it again and you exchange. How many entrepreneur my friend I love it? I think we have some experience in that. Well it's so true you're right we don't know and so we have to be ready to course correct or pivot every single day right and it's like you were saying before like there's some background work we can be doing right now. This all doesn't happen overnight. Doesn't mean being you need like let go of the One trapeze. Before the next one arrives put. Maybe you do because you know. Plan Perfection and constant research in taking classes and whatever at some point. This is what I challenge a lot of my clients on. Where does it become actual Nation your age aged do this thing right right and that was initially after losing my position and now those Margaritas went back went back to school and for two years. I mean that was doing some work in between up for two years. I became a seminar junkie. I went back. I got my master's degree because I had not finished that and finally I looked at my Mike Cabinet would all these binders and certifications. And I was like. Hey Stop the insanity would like just do it. But it's sad. It's sad that fear of stepping out stepping into the unknown and that's part of it and for me part of it was what if nobody he you know wants he. Would I have to say you know? It's it's it's that you know that challenge of M. I. Enough for that in all the way had all of these credentials now but I still enough. But it's like you said limit. Just put yourself out there. But I you talk about creating those healthy boundaries making those right choices. It's making us tour you have to have those boundaries because you will have those naysayers and you will have those people that are because I got it from family. I who do you think you are and I'm the only one in my family that has a college degree. I'm the only one that really stepped out to do something different so I started getting. All those comments could be challenging. Though show heard everywhere you can find the county fire. Shell and most of your favorite networks. It's time to now recognize it. Thank our major networks for all their support in house. We have budgets business radio C. Suite radio transformation radio radiant we also google play Apple Radio Stitcher. And so may I just can't keep the ball. I hear unstoppable up. Learn more about our Jim. Now we get together at my anti shrine in website kind of five shown dot com. I'll see over there until they light. My share shares are now back to the show. One of the most beautiful lessons I learned from training with Rene. Was this idea of teach people how to treat you. Yes right. And that's another another way of talking about boundaries I think yes. Boundary sometimes feels very abstract to people and I know I have had challenge a challenge pulling my own. Hondris of time because I was a people pleaser right. I was a people pleaser. Which is such a weird combination. Now now I too much alike. I love it and now it's about Mike O. Boundaries are teach people how to treat me right and now something that I learned as well and all my certifications but it was when you behave differently. People are going to see you differently. And then that's when they will react to you differently. That's how they will i. I wanted to say that's how they will you know You know communicate with you differently and I know that there's going to still be some out there and I know that for from experience but how. How can we support people who are saying? How do I create us? How boundaries how do I help to support the people? That are not in alignment with me and I know you have all of this in your book and the other thing I would say is how much do you want those people in your life right and I think that's something that it's really hard for to say? You know what? There was a reason in a season for this particular relationships. And maybe it doesn't serve me and my mission in the world anymore and that's okay and I think we can go we. It's it's absolutely okay. We just have to get good was sane. It's all right up honestly I mean. You know this as an entrepreneur you know. Somebody's super successful. We I just believe in surrounding myself with my tribe was yet health me up level. Challenge me on looking at what they're doing right is calling me on my bullshit right like this. I WANNA be surrounded by those people and you know people who a lot. You know a lot of times when we're out there being courageous in speaking our voice. That's not into people and ideas. Those people don't belong in my life anymore and not a and I just let it go. I love that love that because the critics are the critics are out there and they're going to challenge you and that's the thing you have to learn to let it go. I mean that's that's learning. I think they every entrepreneur has to work through. Is that you have to let that go. You have to let those those people go. Can I say one more thing that I I think so much of this? I always say on the other side of fear is everything you want. It's such a powerful ideas of what it means is we have to get re years. Never GonNa go away. It's never gonNa go away because especially for constantly pushing edges and and doing new things and you know really truly serving from a powerful place in five us. He's never going to go away. We have to do is get used to being in the discomfort and no k in the discomfort because that is where all the magic happens. That EXAC was going to say that all the magic happens right there. When you're in that discomfort see middle not that I to live with his comfort but I know when that discomfort happens. I know that the magic is in front of me that I have to take that step. And that's you know on always for everybody listening. You have to take that step because that's where the magic is. It's in that it's in that place where we get too comfortable with staying backer holding ourselves back because of that fear but I always say draw that imaginary line and step over step through that fear and yeah and that's when when the magic happens. Yeah Yeah I you know people need to. I gave my ego right. That's our ego trying to keep us safe. Yes right. And so. That's the fear in the south down. All of that is our ego trying to keep playing small so I gave my ego a name. I call it my identity in the books. That was always like well. Why don't you just do this? Same thing just follow in your dad's steps. Why don't you know that might be something fun for listeners to play with to it's like? Nain your ego and just call it out. I Like I love to shame. Gremlin Niagara One has a name by. I love that. So what is so? What makes you unstoppable. I think it's my authenticity. It goes back to like it goes back to the fact that I now that I'm truly myself in the world and myself in the world I feel and coming from this place of being very mission oriented I. I'm on a mission to Liberate a billion souls. I want to be an impact billionaire. I don't want to find my success. I'm rewriting the script of success right. I don't want to fight in terms of money. And because it's coming from my soul mate lately aligned on that mission. I truly feel unstoppable. I love that this rewrite rewrite the script so any talked about truth tellers and having you tried. So what about those toughest falls that you've had you know and again we're entrepreneurs we know they're there. Yeah well I also ended up this way. Like in every one of those moments where you're like. I am not going to survive this. I am not going to survive this. Im reframed now. And I just always say what is the gift in this and I can't always see it in the moment and I just remind myself that there is always a gift or gifts in those masterclasses that life serves up to us ness and it's going to keep happening so I've tried to not not reprogram my brain because I have the you know the same thoughts that cycle through but I remind myself like there is a gift in this again. Let's go out into the stood still writes tune in and ask you know what sometimes it's just simply asking like what what is the truth here right or sometimes it's what am. I pretending not to know because a lot of times worse simply running from new things happening because we've been ignoring something ignoring a long right. My I love that I love. I always take that step forward into way. I handle it the way I do it very similar gift and I always have that mantra and her in a movie. If it wasn't this would be something else so so there will always be something but always look at. What is that positive? Where is it going to take you so we have a challenge today so two years ago We were by. My website crashed days before we were doing our conference because we had too many people trying to register at the same time. Now good problem to have really good problems right but after my meltdown. Losing our website losing all the registration. We ended up postponing it for for a bit of time to it. So we could. We grew and I had to again to myself. What is a gift that will come of this? What is gift? What is why did is because we always ask the why. When we came back we came back stronger than ever and Levin. Yeah Yeah just keeping in the moment. You can't see that fear inking small right. It keeps us like in our brain another question. I love to ask. I asked my clients this all the time is. How is this happening for you right? It's another another take on the whole thing. I right whatever whatever it is. You know that that we use. It's all we WANNA use it where it's taken this forward and it's you know it's that positive place and take us forward and not be stuck in dwell on like you said what just happened because you so. I always say you have a moment now. Von Exactly exactly are you. And you're allowed to your moment to rain do this with myself and client sometimes with somebody stuck in worry or ear. It's like Oh here okay. You get these twenty minutes on your calendar tomorrow and two. Pm and literally put on your countered say worry time right now just let it go let it was right so give yourself twenty minutes wartime time tomorrow. I heard somebody else told a beautiful story but when they were going through cancer and cancer treatment and it was just like oh like it was just coming out of them if she said. I put a thirty minute. Pity Party on my calendar every morning and I usually wouldn't even take thirty minutes but I just allowed myself to feel sorry to myself and I got it out of my system whether that was like crying nursing meaning punching a pillow or whatever it was right and then I moved on. I thought I'll have so and so beautiful that is is that is. I really love that. Wow I have to remember that one. So we'll you ever be satisfied. I don't know that it will be. I don't necessarily see things in terms of satisfaction. I seen turned things in terms of fulfillment. And that's what I. And that's what I've been striving for is fulfillment but I think my key keeps becoming bigger and bigger right as I take a step forward like. A new door is opened and suddenly. I'm writing a book. Which is the story of my journey. And now I'm an entrepreneur like doors just opening no right so but I feel like I feel really fulfilled right now. Is The truth beautiful? Yeah but there are lots of things in my business. If I'm honest that I'm not completely satisfied with so I think that keeps the fire burning in my belly right and you're going to keep striving and it's going to be something else something else another another on the notch there so where. I know you discern published a book. I know you you're a speaker. So what's next? What else you haven't horizon. Why no for sure have book number two in me. So My core business is coaching. So I coach I speak and I I would love to write at least two more books. This may become a franchise who knows this. Corporate rebels guide to idea One of the things. I'm really really passionate about in the book. Kind of ends in. This place is really exploring the soul of business. And how more of as more of US become chief? So officers. Our lives in uninviting every person in in the world listening to this podcast to just assume that title right and ask that. Moment Ryan do that. We're going to shift culture not just corporate culture but culture overall and I think there's a huge opportunity to also look at what does need right. What does a corporate culture? That's actually serving. Employees nurses employees serving a culture. What does that look like? What is it look like to have radical self care and self commitment at the top of the C. Suite? Agenda a really really needy for me to explorer. So they're so there's so much more there there's more yeah see. I've seen encyclopedia coming.

Pochettino or Solskjaer?

"Welcome insulates addition of ESPN AFC. Dan Thomas joined by Craig Burley an ECHO. Julian Laurent Laurent is with us as well today show. We were going to start with Manchester United and the fat that would would come out once again back Socia and we will start with that but added the lecture spice this discussion Richard Patino. Who is it leads gain? Today gave him proof in the sky and said to be honest I would love to work in the Premier League. I ready and waiting for new challenge. Thought is come and get me plea. Isn't it to Manchester United if you've ever heard one. Yeah yeah well. There was some been some reports the reports. There was some chatter today about while the all gone Italy. Some point show yeah. I don't think I'll be. He said himself leaving say and the summer enlisted psych me but you just never know maybe seniors hanging up for something a little better than mine. United Strangers up me so I don't know what's interesting is that it was a fans forum yesterday. Joe's and obviously Woodward was asked about the plan and he said but now we're going to financially back all he's man we like the strategy that we've implemented. We want to bring in young exciting talent. It seems completely blinkers in. They could swap only for the project. Tina because that is possible. This isn't on the rams. The possibility is it. I'm convinced that push it to you. Know it would be gentler so united next season. I've got no doubt Either they've already been talking or they will be talks very soon between can push people that united but if you think about it. There's there's nothing Edward can say right now you can say we know show about sorts. Care All oh yes tortuga would finish the season and then we will find someone that is because they do it now jobs. Just fire him now. If he's going to come in the summer bring in now push for that top four place price and see what happens. I think he's too risky. Ri- too risky. Because you don't know how how long it will take push to settle in this club especially as we all know is quite a dysfunctional club at the moment. So I think he's quite hard for anyone to take this club in mid-february with Europol he gave come in with domestics and the Premier League Games coming up where these teams Steve Potentially capable of finishing top four and winning trophies. And I think that could also so unsettled the dressing room massively. I think he's the wise thing to do now to stick with sorts January this one three and a half months left to go. You stick with him he will do. His best is is. We'll do is best their best and then you make a big change in the summer. Now you've got one of the best I monetize and you and you've you've got philosophy and the for a manager that you can bring in and tell them. This is a philosophy perfect. This is how we wanted to go about those one guy with a reputation that Porch Tina's got older because that's exactly what happened to him. We Levy it brought N.. Where we said look we? We want you to get us to set the stage. This is how we're going to do it each path. Thank for bringing them in. No Oh you know give them three monge owns to see and then help you and this summer and let you know what he wants. What's wrong with our jobs? You're talking as if this is a settled happy. Ip Productive Dressing Room. which we know isn't no no no I agree with you? Isn't it was more in the sense that I just don't think you would you. Would it would be a service to to just bring him in right now when things are going well anyway that and also I think there's a close when pushing did you know left Spurs. That says he's not allowed or able to take over another premier league club in this currencies. And I think next season will be fine. I think the season he's on. You can't do it unless the other team has to. Pay Levy and spurs quite hefty sum of money. So I don't I don't think that would work for anyone. That's why I think it will happen owning in the summer but I I guess. TV's points as well things are going right now and you could do with a change. I think he's a tricky time as well for change right now plus a case. It's not I mean I think it is. Marco Mark Ogden appointed two or three months ago about potential close in more than primarily and is the case it seems to be Jewish. said it or he said so. Maybe is a little bit more difficult because there's no stumbling blocks there's no no barriers. You bring them in now and then he under stop against the SELMER. He's got three and a half more four months more understanding of the club all of the facilities of the staff of your squad of what exactly needs but clearly united. I'm not going to do that. So are you as convinced that you'll say he will be the manager at the next season. Tina the longer would come and not just is not one that I'm just not convinced and Edward. WITHY ness bald in terms of decision making no. It's tricky isn't as you've saying the longer it goes the less chance you feel this. Socio is going to get the side code of going to make a change and the more the everybody comes embarks the way they're going to vote and bikes is the chances of seemed less and less and less that there's going to be a truck. Here's a here's a thing. Say say a Real Madrid pissed mindset mindset in the Champions League say the fall off to the end of the season We're not going to finish the talk for. I understand that just really into the season cope the problem in the Cariboo Cup anyway and changed his mind to tell you what I'm going to go. She thinks everything he's done at city to inventors. What I'm saying just say for example that happened in each shade it right? I've just think about it. I've had enough right. What is it do? Oh Poor Chino's then and if you put your Tino just governor just throwing us out there a year the two choices between the red saved and the blue cited simple joyous snapshot simple choice so the point being unless there's some pre deal been done between him and the club he could go somewhere else. How possible is that theory Jules? I think he's very very likely pep. Guardiola will leave in the summer. Even if everything that graduates said happens. I still think that city will want to keep him. He's he's he's got another two and a half years left on his contract is where not city and I think he's happy there. Yes things I've been worked out exactly the way. He wanted this season and yet Liverpool right by now by far better than then but I still think he has more to give to that clever and actually has more to give to him and I. I can't see him leaving in the summer. It's All Burma Ed. But then if he was to leave then yeah of course. City will be much better proposition for Bush's tenure. Then united on you know I don't mean I don't think said he would get ready to one hundred percent don't don't do go out sometimes and change the main now. All I'm saying is if you're leaving it to the summer that as a potential for other. Just this is Becca clubs to come in England or somewhere in Europe the sedition and cap and Gills podcast soaks more about manages united. And if if you haven't seen it or no you will get the gap mall. Copies wrap where he incorporates. Every signing Manchester United have made since Alex Ferguson bags and left marijuana and his hair zano longer. Hair Yanko and Varela mattress a lovely fella. Say Goodbye to David Moyes.

The wires big. Ed Buna Fernandez is one more signing left to go and look. It's Odean some of the thing that I think is going to have to come equipped to that point with tablet and he's focused four kids. How proud of that was? He was really proud. I mean it was enough work behind the two and a half minutes that he sang that song and the week before your most did he was also shaw and Monday morning. He said to me sure so I do go go for it and view is I think he really enjoyed it so it is a bit of love. I guess cost definitely the big question is. Don't show it to the boss. That's why why would they come viral. God robbing away could go onto the week. Always check that out the end of the week Craig Collins. TV stupid well. I can promise you. We won't be talking about this time next week. Because it's Champions League and the return of the knockout stages some Burundian fixtures as well we've got coming out for your starts with against pants. The S G and outlets against Liverpool Kimmel's first leg ties will mark the occasion. I've run youtube. Craig did his Champions League power rankings. And it's caused was the Qantas storm is saying the soccer world. Yes the common segment bustling with anger at the fact that there is no Celona in your talk find. Compared to the bookie's at Boston is third. Favorite's where are they craig. Why and they've and hold on? The bookies. Don't have the best team in Spain at the moment even in the top five yet. The reason for that is because they're playing Manchester City. So that is why you can get good odds around only event I think scored creates a moment moment. I think Seti say events has passed a loner at the moment last one a couple of weeks ago now I understand that but they founded handed. Okay but digits lose Rona joint top of the League and then debate about fossil and don't have enough players going to have to go and beg for. Please say transfer window so I don't know I don't think there are other. I think there are better equipped sites and bustling moment right saving. What do you think I would have bus CELONA and the top five just because of surprise surprise Lino Messy Ed? Okay and these plan you do so. They sorry we're up. I don't have a problem with the the bookies. I wouldn't have them there. You'd have to all sorts that favorites Right again really. Fourth right got violent five. I wouldn't buy an event this and showed up his boss on it. Three stay tuned Liverpool. Simple as that this is the only no no Real Madrid. No because he's going to not want hence around one hundred hundred parcel top five Joel's in the fifth round Madrid in that they would be much in the last sixteen knock-out city so I la Madrid. Instead of the city you ramjet above sitting your power rankings as well. Yeah well I think the plan I think that the moment I think that game's fifty fifty the both of them around breath Madrid. Three times was recently in a row and have fun defeat fee and the League on the plane with discussed the shore. The squad's look up. Everything looks reasonably Rosie at the moment behind Liverpool. For me at the moment the second flavors seventy one on this ties when you take a look at those games of course is bruce. Your woman against it was confirmed that name. I will miss the coupons smashed tomorrow drink. And that's the second one in a row that he's missed gills any chance that he could make me miss out on the first leg of this tie next week. No no chance of just preserving him really as you know that birthday party then. He didn't play the game against knowns then he didn't play was was was the weekend I find little hip injury or something or rib injury and then for tomorrow is simply a case of. Do you know why let's take note. They can erase guitar just a week before that game. The last two seasons he was injured can fly that both gaming the last at least one second-leg Madrid But this time they don't want to take any risk. I think he will feature on Saturday against back illegal and then be ready on Wednesday for the for the trip to document so fully. Could he ready to finally shine gills. Is this this moment. This is year this is the big question. Obviously the big debate. He has been incredible credible form in the last three month. Really almost unplayable at time illegal. He's done some good things in the Champions League matches that he played because she was suspended did for the first three. So the question is easy. Ready and we'll be able to carry this team to the next level by that people means no just the quarterfinal semifinals or maybe own words and in the foam that he's now with these team behind him is more balanced him than pg ever had more more is a stronger squad than they've ever had as well. There's versatility tactically in that to which maybe it was not the case in previous. Is this hopefully the lessons. That they've have learned from the raimondo against passer from the defeat against the united last season. That will they will use if needed at some point in in this competition this season so all those positive he points hopefully with Namus inform will have to go find the competition. PS wrong it's just a little but it didn't mention that the majority of the squad is the same squad bashed. Oh unceremoniously in the last couple of years so that you never lose that up against another Bala again. I don't think I think Dortmund will beat them over two legs. Sure you know I was GonNa say this. I mean entertaining. I should say Dow lost again. We can't deliver cushion. The ship Gold's yet of exciting tyler. An in Holland whose command done and I hope he starts because Satan to watch but I just think. PS Jeff too much dormant benefits then the drawer and it's up up to them. Yeah I mean if you've never heard of Ryan shirke be sure to check out Jill's latest column on the website all your old sensation take frank's noise dad. He's Switzerland Villa. Check it out nice video placement. It's going to be a race. It's going to get right down to the wire in Spain. Just three point. Separating Rams Jared and Barcelona big blow for Barcelona today confirm the expand Dan belly out for the rest of the season operation. They'll keep me out for six months. WISCON- Joe's is I I think he's ninth injuries since joining the club. Two and a half years ago now a force Monday and billy I mean we can. We can debate and we. We've done a lot on the show. About how how. He lives his life as a as a professor for border. And I'm sure there's a lot we can say about it again but right now we have to decide for him because he's he's GonNa meet the euro's way would have gone with Franz. He's going to miss a big chunk of the season again with Barcelona like too many times John Club. And it's a real shame and and also put in the position of loss rise for the rest of the season they've mining belly for the rest of the season gone through fatty onto agreement for the the three position of the united gone. Carlos Perez is cars Peres going to AS Roma so there'd be thin in their squads and for club is this is quite baffling to see them in that position and now opens the door for something that I'd never heard before he can make an emergency signing number nine window. Deputy puts it number nine with possible. Suitors who could be joining Barcelona despite the fact that transfer window has shots. There's a couple of caveats meaning. The plath has already be registered with a club in Spain or is a free agent jobs. I've heard this a goal keepers. I don't think I've ever heard strikers before never really never end. I mean I don't know how the other clubs in Liga field or if it was rude well known from from every other club done just no one used before because they wouldn't be in that position but if you read Madrid and Barcelona Reina about to sign let's say Lucas Perez from out surveys. Who's been on good form this season and he ends up scoring the winner at the Bernabeu? Mazda I win. The classical is happening and win the League by one point. Let's say something like that. It's cool by Lucas Peres. I don't know how you would feel feel pretty outrage. I think February two ninety can benefit from in exploited up that route and make the most of it but it sounds unfair to me. Even if the law Suarez we've just said and even if they can sign only players who are already playing again and as you said who will be free agent in the summer. Still Squadron. Incredible rule if they're really the first one to be able to benefit from this fair. I mean I was talking about earlier. He might have a different view. But I'm telling you I've never held an answer ridiculous. I don't care if got fourteen injuries. Go on this. Call the game off. I mean if they have not a single goalkeeper at the club that's potentially at different Mata but just because you've injuries doesn't mean you can go out with a transfer one just anybody people in sorry a Frizz you're okay with it it's not boss. aloneness the rule in place that they can exploit is as long as they're real. It's going to be able to do that. They're going to do so it has to be there should it. And let's say they make up the rules and by the way I mean Jewish Israeli realm would not be happy if they saying that Peres in schools but guess what a Real Madrid one position. What did you think Real Madrid? Do All celona Dune as explain the situation that obviously is their fault for getting themselves in such a mess but if the rule is there I was unfair. I can't believe for one minute. That is a Rou written by the Spanish Federation or whoever that says all and few a few injuries you can go. I would say they're trying to do and bring some players in so that's a hell of a mid this rule so what I'm saying I don't think think is ren I'll be surprised. I think they've gone to the authorities and said can we do this and they potentially might say yes. I mean F- F- say for example in the Real Madrid mind just a point behind Levu right how of course it was last year and David Barrage of injuries like the with LaPorte and a few lessons said listen. We're really struggling for defender any chance to bring an end because the singer and then they beat Liverpool waypoint. I would be happy to you. All should should the rupee. Then there tomorrow if fantasize question because the fighters there is a rule around. They've asked they're going to be Elo. The federation allow it. They've gone to the federation they take that course and said this is what's going on. We need to make another sign. There's something in place that you can do then not not Barcelona's rate and then you let me if that's written into the laws laws of the game. In Spain. They might Israel scrap the transfer window and a free for all. I've never heard in SOC stupid on all my life. You had a month to go and same playas de barely engine greenman essential. Here's the deal Jason Occupational Hazard and you know one of the biggest clubs in the world. You've gotTA squad you've got reserves. You supposedly have some of the best kids. You should tough on the planet. They commend and do a job. Jewish mentioned three players that the goal of the exactly Front Jones just explained the fine print if this regarding the Spanish FAA and when we go look like the boys of Cetera explained Basser none of us the Spanish affair. WHO's in charge of of this rule? Somehow though he will only apply for League I so I don't know why you didn't go to the League for the Spanish affair then state on on Wabasso Wont Wont Signing Player as we sat outside of the transfer window. He's got permission is granted. Then they'll be able to find someone who's already registered in a in a in in your Spanish your face with someone who plays in Spain the WHO we are of contract in the summer and Bass I can only spend between ten and twelve million euros so they could go out four and sign geography example. However they can sign potentially a good striker in as we said it really enjoys from ROSACEA dot org who is a bit more expensive than the budget that they have got Perez or and help from Hitachi or those players but then she can be valued a squad for the rest of the season? We will find out in theory tomorrow about whether this will actually go ahead and get all the latest you go over to the website click on translates over cover. Italian is live at tomorrow on. ESPN plus intimate land. Taking on Napoli the first leg twenty four hours after that it's AC Milan against you in the other semi. Meanwhile a lot of rumors about the future ervices. This is genius. Dance we'll see a US international currently at Ion however suggestions is that by and wants him gills. Yes that's right and As in a transfer window design By back from Rod Madrid's best. That's really is the one that they've identified a long time ago that very keen on and to fill that gap right back especially since Kim Ish not play a central midfielder clearly need for someone in that position and has impressed nudges by meeting of top clubs in Europe. This season and I very surprised. Surprised if you're still Iraq's next season very surprised if he was somewhere else than by Munich next season as well meanwhile former. US Kosher Can Clinton spinners last exactly seventy six days in his role as manager Hertha Berlin of course brought in to study that ship currently sit fourteenth in the table. Just I Full points off relegations. Six points off relegation zone Josie described it in an interview as a suicide mission. Yeah I mean I think you should choose. His words bit better than that. Next time he speaks but but seventy six days. I think it tells you everything you need to know other than that. There was really a power struggle. Declared if you wanted more power and more responsibility because he also said today that he wanted to be a manager like the people do in England where you actually do everything and maybe that was not the case however Ta really backed him up the window in January they spent this unfold place for the toll of seventy six million euros. I think and in the case of Luca Tuesda for example the French midfielder from your own. He agreed to join the club because Klinsmann was then kinsman convince him to come and then a few days later Klinsmann's just just the door and leave the club so I don't know how to phase right now maybe other signings do the same bay. He's been a joke from day. They won seventy six. Meanwhile we sing a few trades. Lost you with the new season about the latest one will see Zimmerman. Don't think switch from L.. AFC He'll be plying. His trade with new boys Nashville the start of the season a season. Of course we comprehensively cover once once again here on the espn all stars in the great double header for Seattle signs they come Chicago Fire. That's followed by AFC taking on new boys inset set Miami Busy Day in the championship legion I it can only manage a one one draw in their big game against Bradford meanwhile Nottingham. It's GonNa forest losing at home. Surprisingly Against Charlton me. The top two remain West Brom and leads are feature gain tomorrow. We'll see for the chance to me. It's up to second in the table. Their way against millwall that game live on prostitute forty five also on tomorrow. It's the start of the carpet out. Maybe not the semifinals. Or you're expecting athletic. Bilbao on taking on Granada that game at three PM eastern extra time available on our youtube channel. This is frank techniques for his beautiful saints in the Swiss Alps. Today we talk about Neymars Mouse Party and whether or not just made the whole thing up plus tv some humble pie about Ben's and Creighton grumpy ways by high. Hi Not. We'll be back tomorrow for more so next time goodbye. Welcome into extra-time questions for us. Stevie starting with wide. You hate coming up a little later on first-name ask party relevance with regards to Joel's being supposed- guests before the question I'll fosters and believe believe you actually went Jones. He's a wind up just pretending it's a shame for him than for him to get him in next. It's next year will prove to you. Have you actually went. Jolson didn't just make this up. Sorry what proof do you have that you went to name House Birthday Pie and this is all. I'm just a big hoax. Told you everything that happened in the eastern time there who was like one more. What would you say? Go up even more next year. Actually I can take photos of myself in if you want to show. You took a picture. No we're not allowed to spoil. All sounds very suspect all our boys league. Is it Brian Jones if you had a plus one nine Amos birthday which of the ESPN AFC crew. Would you have taken with. You Dow TV every day that was CBS. Stevie show where white I must have missed. Yeah but did stevie ever apologize for throwing livable's throwing coach under the bus as the spat showed livable strong. Possession percentage went up from forty five percent to sixty eight percent up to signing the coach from Third Lois primarily to second in Europe Paula. College is it should. I can understand his father's techniques concerned that would make some sense right but one hundred grand a year. Oh come on aw come on Stevie. You've won a European Cup arguably the biggest prize in football I looked at the stats this little Stevie to the first penalty penalty and missed. My question is what made him want to step up taper first penalty on the biggest stage in Congratu winning it. To how old were you then because because three twenty two right because we've had apparently competition before we let Pistons a cannot run through an. I was the only one that school everybody else must. When it came to the penalties there was a law? That was a mullen. Aroon try figure who was taken. What number and on I I'll tell you anyway? I'll take it makes no no difference right. Performance only couldn't rather high over the crossbar. How you invisible bugs bugs ill bill? So did you take a penalty since I must apparently my own testimony. Testimonial it doesn't count. I took a apparently semifinal of an Italian woman who was never been with only Latin uh-huh serious I'm talented. Yes considering everything you've played in a school that was one of them I didn't boy. What the website? Jeez apparently four when you won the European Cup three expensive gory details. Craig should run just united. Signed Philip Casino Down Craze Way. Just it doesn't even when he won the European count full. Well if you want to be if you want to be pedantic season eighty three eighty four twenty seven. You always ask yourself and I know he's time he started well at by his tail. Always ask yourself as better. l'amour is gone. Oh yes and the answer is yes. Yeah the next level player. Don't know moss to him. I'm not telling me wherever I was going to it. Based on what you've got the answer yes right money. Joel's any chance It's an interesting one because not signed Bruno Fan Mondays you could. You could wander do their thing that they can those two together always. This similar profile is similar position event. And could you go and spend another one hundred hundred million hundred twenty million on on casino. I I think the Chinese debt. And if you if you're ready to say the gun is one taking dot could see why they would think you know what we're going to give a chance to justify Mondays. And then just go for the continue option. You couldn't have burnfatorlando. Is Philip continual on Paul Paul. When he's fat which is often the summer he couldn't have voiced I the in the Medfield heck talents but the balance just is not right so liberal for cut price for a cop price? ACS because when when when when he lashed was at Liverpool in only played in the white in the front three actually played. White has one of the three in the middle of the pack as well. So you know he do. I think he could do that today. No but then why because he seems to have completely lost these web. I didn't expect them to be able to do it. Liverpool and he did which is fantastic but it seems to have lost this these wig and so you kind of wonder. He's going to take some time if he was to come back to Liverpool Manchester United. I would think he's GonNa take a little time to to get back in the swing of the primarily Italy but certainly in an a position laid off. It wasn't me three white put. Manchester United's KQED's. I don't think of a time that they can just city somebody rookie. We'll we'll we'll let you sit eleven. Wouldn't want from me chills teeth and clean and pay will go down as a bigger legend in Tehran. Re this guy's Avatar is You apparently already. And he's thanks. The burnout is any relevancy. No but okay. Thank you It's a good question though is a good question. He has certainly started stronger than Jerry. Dates I always are the new. We'll have to wait and see. I think I think he has the potential to do better than Cherry. I think he has the potential but then to do better than any French bread hearts. Because I think he's he's that good I'm Tom would tell really But he will be ahead of you know if you could if you could better all re Copa those players and even better even that it would be something is only Howard had higher in England or in France. Joel's England hundred percent. It's very strange and fascinating Subject actually to see the difference in opinions and in In in respect in a way that jerry highs in the two countries that are so close but yet Heinberg against islands in the The World Cup playoff hostile to law of his image. That was already not the the best because of of the where he was as a player and as a man which was it was very different. Back in England way was really gods Which is never stated you quite? Why does Stevie Hate Benz? Amar Benza is a benefit for me. He now holds the record of most assists and around in history and soon. We'll talk puskas record of goals don't think mo chantal. She's been listened to me this. You know since the start of the season of should I said I don't know what's happened to Bennema. He's playing. He's playing as well this season. Has He ever played Real Madrid. He's playing well no question. I mean the stages last year we thought this guy. He's never going to see a wrong about throwing wrong about Ben's Amar wrong about Lukarco so you've just nodded your head when I said he's played as well as he's he's done. He's not your head in agreement wrong when you said he was finished because let's say the moderate don't share nothing nothing good to see which is why I'm in. What happens to create these as he seems a lot less grumpy? I'm just a modern midseason. Yeah on that blit remember last season the first few days who was great. Could you go whether you go. Once right and went for a walk became by exchange exchangeable. Inge woke up back. He doesn't seem happy you don't see people she nfl. ooh Oh oh they just ought mockery come by Santa.

Okay. The hickam. Okay. Here. We go. KFC Kentucky Fried Chicken announced it is testing a new Cheetos sandwich in selected restaurants at locations in North Carolina, Virginia and Georgia.

By the Lakers nutritionist when she finds out that you are eating a Cheetos KFC sandwich doesn't sound that bad for having a piece of cake is worse than having a Cheetos chicken sandwiches agree. Can't. Disagree more awesome. We'll try it. I don't know if I'll mix I don't know if I'll necessarily drive the KFC looking for it. But if it comes my way, or you're listening to k SPN, Los Angeles. So my wife was at Disneyland the other day twins and a young woman walked by her wearing a pair of Jordan's. So first of all respect Jordan's reviewer. Coming Jordan, shoes, Jordan shoes. Michael, Jordan sneakers. Yes, Jordan's are come on. For people. Don't you Jordan's are becoming even more superfluous as as the years go on they're becoming bigger and bigger more. People are wearing on people like me that wanted them going up are now going back and buying them. And there's an additional market for women that has been growing and growing. However in this case, John it was raining at Disneyland. And my wife noticed that this woman had what we're essentially shoe rain jackets over her Jordan's. Okay. They were clear they had a snap. They went up over the women's ankle as my wife's telling me tells me, and they were basically like, you know, if somebody comes to your power pro plumbing, guys come into deliver an air conditioner, and they come inside. They put the little booties right there visa, but they're clear you can still see the shoes. What do you think about that? First of all, how do I get some brilliant? If I have on like, really nice, dress shoes. And I'm walking in the rain, and I can just snap on clear protective covers for my expensive shoes done and Mike the part you left out about. Jordan's being all over the place now, and the fact that you have a couple of pairs and you've liked him over the years is they're they're actually expensive. They are. They're not they're not used to buy Chuck Taylors for six dollars. When I was a kid, and I was all excited. I would put him back in the box after but these were converse. Chuck Taylor low tops. All right, Jordan's, depending on the kind you buy can run you north of two hundred bucks. I want your sister your starting at two hundred. I mean, some you can buy some for twenty thousand. Okay. If they're the limited is this woman was any making fun of her. No, no, no, she she was just she just had never noticed it out in public before. And I have not seen this. I think it's going to happen more and more. But here's like my issue is so any actually got me a pair of Jordan's for Valentine's saves, very it's very nice of her. I was going to wear them in today. But I looked outside as said no way, I'm not wearing these. So I wore I wore like some some be level of my shoes from Mark day the now, but so southern California allows you to. To wear your Jordan's. And you're nice shoes more than other places. For example. If I still lived in Minnesota, I don't know how many times a year, I would even be able to wear my shoes when you get home. She gets on me for this. I'll get baby wipes out in the back of I would not get on you about that. I don't know. But I don't think it looks particularly cool to have essentially bags over your Jordan's. Maybe not. But but don't you want to in the in the long run you want him to last and some people resell them, right? They they buy. Yes. But if you're gonna resell them, then you should wear them at all and in sort of retain their perceived quality for me, I I love Jordan's. But I want to wear them when I buy them. I don't know. I just I don't think I could go as far as wearing the baggy to the shoes. But but let me know at my Trudell if you're into that if you think that's going to click on I'm curious I used to play a lot of pickup basketball put a three or four times a week. And I had a pair of Jordan's that I really light. But I played so much that I wore them out so Mike I went to go find this exact pair. I think they were they. Jordan fourteen. So I think he's up he's into the twenties now, but this particular pair, I I didn't necessarily love the way they looked just loved the way I played in them. And I felt I could not find them for a reasonable price anywhere. And I literally went online googled it found some guy in southern California. And we met like you like two guys cut in a shady deal under an underpass. We met in Elsa gun. No. And I bought these Jordan's for one hundred bucks and still have Viggo. But that's how hard these were to find an what what that my eyes to was there. Certain collectors like you say that will pay top dollar for these especially if they're in mint condition. Yeah. It so I don't blame that woman with the plastic covers at all is growing and growing if you're looking for if you're looking for the best selection of Jordan's, and you want to actually go and see them in person riff, Los Angeles, L LA. It's downtown Jeff is the owner fantastic Thompson and Trudell show. Yes. Coming to weigh in on sneaker deals in in this case. So you mentioned him in that in in this whole conversation that anti-gatt you appear Jordan's for Valentine's Day. I got Lisa. I've mentioned I went to growing wild the flower shop in Manhattan beach, and I got Lisa this really extravagant thing for Valentine's Day, and she got it. And she was really touched. And she said to me, do you know what you're getting? And I said, no, she goes spaghetti for dinner. You know, she does do a lot for yourself. Even a card or something spaghetti for. All right. Mike a student at the university of North Carolina at Greensboro found a man inside of her closet wearing her clothes after repeatedly noticing. Her belongings had been misplaced or missing. She finally figured out. There was a guy living in her closet. The student says she thought she had a ghost. She consistently locked her door. There was never a sign. Anyone had broken in? Finally. She heard a noise in her closet and said is somebody in there and the guy answered yes me. Turns out Andrew swat furred had been living in her closet for weeks. He's suspected of breaking and entering as well as identity theft, larceny, possessing stolen, goods failing to appear in court in connection with previous cases, he's been arrested and the girl and her roommate are moving out of this complex a few questions here. How long could somebody be living in your house without you figuring it out more than a day? You think? Microphone just fell near there is one. So I don't have a big house. There's one room in our house. It's three bedroom house. There's one room that I rarely go into like the guest room. Right. And they're like we keep stuff in there. I was like some of my. Your mom or your sister? They come out. So it's it's next to the boys room. But unless they're going in there to run away or hide or something. I I may not go in there. You know, more than times a week. There's some I think you're forgetting though, it's possible. If somebody just stayed in that closet, only in somehow like manage to creep out at night to like, get some food or something. I it's possible. Somebody could go a few days. Do you think that's true? Even though you have a dog. See I have a loud. Yes. That would bark and make a big scene dog is is an x factor would definitely notice. This not have a dog. That's one. Point. Troops out the guys like wearing her clothes, and he knew her schedule. So when she would leave he he would leave any new and she was coming back. So he would be. Yeah. It come back with the guys arrested. She's moving there's a there's a a an off duty police officer one time came and spoke to a group where I was at. And he said dogs are actually a much bigger deterrent to criminals come into your house, then alarms. Okay. Another question for you. When is the last time, you changed your locks have you ever done that or the locks the original locks from when you like bought the house original. Okay. So we just changed ours. Recently, just because we hadn't done it in a long time. The other thing is do you have a ring doorbell? The shack owns got one for any for Christmas ended up taking it back. Okay. And so you your home security is basically, Lila, we've got security system. Okay. So that helps us sometimes activists sometimes not, but yeah, usually active. What's what's weird to me is that and I live in a gated community. If I didn't have the dog I have. Room. Like you were describing earlier where I think that guy could camp out in there for a couple of weeks. Musician, by the way questions. What's your address? Johnny. You're trying to get somebody to actually I have. I have I've armed security outside of go outside of my house. It it it that story creep me out. I'll tell you. All right. You're at that. Well, try not to have any anybody come to my house now. All right, John is you can't have a dog the dog ended alarm system, as you know, John Manchester, United my beloved. Yeah. And yeah, I might I adopted him after you just United fired the former manager Josie Marino a few weeks ago in name d-, former striker Ole Gunnar so skyer ole-ole as the caretaker manager. This will call it in interim interim essentially the care they went on a tear. And so they one there. They went ten ino- with one tie in his first eleven games just ripped off a great stretch before they though in the champion lead. Disappointing loss yesterday to pair Saint Germain. However, it got me thinking John who is the greatest interim. This is easy manager of all time. I haven't answered a local answer. And I'll be curious if it's the same one. No, this is the answer is Steve Fisher. Okay. So Steve Fisher was an assistant coach at Michigan. And they in the late eighty s and word leaked out that Bill Frieder the head coach at Michigan had accepted a job at AirAsia state effective at the start of the next school year. So Frieder was going to finish his job coaching this Michigan team, and then leave at the end of the year to go coach at Arizona state. And then Fisher they both him Boeckler the old coach was the ethic director, and he had that famous line. I want a Michigan man coaching at Michigan. I don't want some part time or coaching our team in the tournament. So like right before the tournament Schimdt Boeckler fired Frieder and Steve Fisher. Came in and ran the table won the whole thing that was with remedial Robinson, and Glen Rice and those guys then so Fisher, they can't fire them like like, I think gunnison might get the Manchester United job, don't you? Because he's been so good Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Yes. That guy. He's he's been so good that I think that that in Manchester United is like one of the most famous athletic teams in the world. He may they may have to give him the job because he's been so good Fisher won the tournament. So they couldn't fire him. And then he went out and got the fab five to go there. He's got Chris Webber and Jalen Rose's. So that's my answer. I think the answer is Steve Fisher. Well, all right. I will I will pitch this. I'm not sure if it exactly qualifies, but Pat Riley figure about how Pat Riley came into the Lakers situation. Right. So what do one coach goes out Riley, essentially becomes Stu lands at the time was chick Hearn's color, man. They brought him down from in. So toss starting as an assistant. But then the next. Year. Dr Jerry Buss goes up to Jerry West and says, hey, I want you to be co coaches and Jerry West basically says well, and that's at a press conference I will coach with Pat for a month. And then it will be his job and Showtime the rest was history right now. Of course, they'd already one once they'd get the the the rest of Showtime, and because it was like eighty one eighty two and he goes on to be the coach until nineteen nineties. Would that qualify? It's you as caretaker. So then then my answer is Pat Riley. Yeah. Sure. It's great answer. And the you know, the weird thing about that was. Jack McKinney was the coach of the Lakers any went for a bike ride. Anywh some a car hit him. Yeah. Tragically and and Paul Westhead replaced him. And then west Ed got in a run in with Magic Johnson. And magic said I don't wanna play for this coach he doesn't he doesn't coach defense or whatever. I know what the problem was. I don't know if it was officially said that. But it was thought it was thought that he and magic had different philosophies. Yeah. But you know, right after that is is how Pat Riley was born. Then he ran say, okay. We'll be back with more fasttrack in exactly two minutes. Mike Trudell information. I'm John Ireland ESPN LA. All right. More fast track. Mike Trudell is in for Mace. And I am up fast chat. Okay. Mic the era. Zona cardinals have the first pick in this year's NFL draft. They also hired someone, you know, well, cliff Kingsbury to be their new head coach right back when he was at Texas Tech. Jack Kingsbury famously said that he loves Heisman Trophy winner kinda Murray so much that he would quote take him with the first pick in the draft. If I could end quote now Murray is committed to football over baseball and hired a guy named Eric Burkhardt to be as agent burkhart is also Kingsbury she's agent both Adam Schefter and Kirk herbstreet are suggesting that the cardinals could trade twenty two year old Josh Rosen after just one year and draft Murray to be their quarterback. If they did go that way, they could probably trade down and get more picks since most draft experts. Don't think Murray will go number one. They think he could go in the top fifteen but a third of them now. Now, I want to be fair to Kingsbury, obviously, if he was the head coach at the cardinals he wouldn't have said that publicly about Murray he was trying to do it saying nice thing about the Oklahoma quarterback that played in his conference. Yes. So I don't think that you can hold that quote against cloud. It's like what coach is always nice about that. Yeah. Let's say you run the cardinals. What is the better option? Stick with Rosen and used that pick to draft another physician the cardinals kind of need everything or trade Rosen. Get a couple more picks and kind of Murray QB, what would you do? Oh, goodness. I mean, this is a tricky situation because I do see how Murray would fit in Kingsbury system, which you know, people think that offensive -ly run-and-shoot and all that kind of stuff that all they do is throw it. It's really not the case. There's a lot of running involve the defense is so spread out that there are a lot of gaps for the running back, and especially if you have a running quarterback. I mean, that becomes even that much more. Interesting Rosen, obviously isn't gonna run much right? You you saw him John. Great UCLA. He just kind of drops back. But my tendency just like this NFL draft, you have Nick Bosa. Okay, edge rusher. Best player in the class is ridiculous. And then you already have Patrick Peterson. And all pro defensive player and their defense close in Peterson together could be really good. Then you you have Josh Allen, right? For out of Kentucky that the a lot of people. I was ridiculous in the Quinton Williams. Is that right that isn't defensive lineman from Alabama? That's just on Stor. And it would be tough for me. It will come to when Rosen's seems like be a pretty good player. It will be tough for me. To not take one of those three ridiculous defensive players and try to have a bit more of a balanced roster, then to take the risk of trading diagree with you. And if I were the cardinals, I would take a serious renovating Tonio Brown, you put Larry FitzGerald on one side and in Tonio Brown on the other that gives Josh to really good weapons to throw to. And and you know, they already have David Johnson. Who is an all pro running back, then you're onto something. Now, you got something going, I'm with you. I I would hang onto Rosen and and draft one of those defense Chaco, I think that's the right way to go. But we'll see. All right. John. David Stern was recently on a podcast. And to summarize he essentially said that that if Collin capper Nick were in the NBA instead of the NFL he would still have a job and just that statement at its root. And there, you know, there's some of the quotes there started talked about how mock mood A rod new roof. Chris Jackson Jackson. Dual right wolf basically had did a protest through the anthem stern ended up finding him. And I believe he suspended him for a game. And but but he went row went on to have a career. Well, they they eventually because they reach an agreement that allowed him to stand for the anthem with his head bowed in prayer. That was basically they agree so stern handled. It progressively in figured out a way to to sort of acknowledge what what Abul roof would believed in and still was able to make his protest in his own way. So, but do you do you buy that premise, do you think that this is a problem unique to the NFL in the or do you think this is just a bit of a shot across the bow from David Stern in the NBA over to the NFL? No, I buy the premise. I think that if Colin Kaepernick was doing this in the NBA that Adam silver who is the most progression progressive Commissioner in all of sports would've nipped in the bud right away. He would've called in several different players, and he would have said all right guys. Let's reach a compromise on this. And he would have got it done. As a matter of fact, Ramona has. A report on ESPN dot com today that the NFL quietly reached out to Adam silver to see Viet any interest in changing leagues, and maybe becoming the NFL Commissioner because these are the types of things that silver heads off at the pass. I do think that there would be more room for disagreement. And let's Mike let's face it the NBA as just a more progressive league. Yeah. By a lot. They have black ownership. They they have, you know, the head of the players union and the vice president or two elite players the players all actually not only they actually like Adam silver. Yeah. Which is which is the most common thing in in every other league. So to me, I think that that it probably would have been worked out. What do you think? I think so too. I don't even think it's close. I think that that's been a tenant of the NBA for years of sandy behind its players and letting them express themselves, and it's been one of the reasons why the league had more success now is that like the NFL is struggling as a business model. So I guess the way that they've done business has has a from a bottom line perspective worked, but from a public relations standpoint, not even close. Yeah. And. I think that well, let me just put it this way. I don't wanna rip any other league. I just think Adam silver is the best Commissioner in sports. And there isn't a problem that I don't think he could handle I think that whatever comes up no matter how ugly that he's so smart that he would handle it. And I wouldn't have said all that stuff about former commissioners. But I will bet him. It's just think the guy gets it. It's hard to picture another lockout, you know, you. And I went through two of them, you are employed at the time. I was in the one in the nineties I was still in high school. But then the one I was under the twenty eleven when you were twenty eleven and that was that was scary. That was that was rough all of the business that wasn't coming in. It's hard to see anything like that coming up with how well the league's doing good, Adam silver, ever become just Commissioner of sports and have vice Commissioner, no below sport yet. It's a good idea. But on the outside that is interesting. That's an interesting thought. Hey. Hey. All right. Tom Brady told Michael Strahan last week that being called the goat greatest of all time makes them uncomfortable. Brady said he would rather someone criticize him and that criticism motivates him more than praise but is Tom Brady the goat. The greatest player of all time. Let's each name a goat in the major sports and see if we come up with the same name, Greg. You can do this too. So I'm going to count to three and on the winter when I say three I'll go one two three say the name of the person that you think is the greatest of all time in that sport. Now, let's guess beforehand. I have one two three four five six seven sports, Greg. How many times what we all say the same name? I think you've seven sports. Yep. Four. All right, Mike, how many? Well, I'll say three I think it'll be more than that. I would be five. Okay. Let's try it on the first one. All right. Why can sabotage this now? No, no, no. But I've just just doing it as a social jokes just disobey right about my three. That's true. But don't you answer? I'll be honest. I'll be right. So I'll say one two three and say the name, I sport is basketball one two three Michael Jordan. Okay. All in all in unanimous. Okay. Football one two three Tom Brady. All right. We're two for two. This is this is where it gets hard baseball who K. One two three bay willingness. Yeah. Would you say, okay? So to Mike I wrote Babe Ruth or Willie Mays. I was deferring to my father on this one. Who told me that is amazing Babe Ruth was that the fact that Willie Mays was also the best defensive player he ever saw an had the numbers. But yeah, that's I haven't agreed to be on all right hockey, one two three Wayne Gretzky. Yeah. K we're all the same tennis one two three. Serena williams. Caterer inches. So that we had difference. You guys went Federer. I think if you look at Serena's dominance on her side versus Roger Rogers, great. But Serena's the greatest tennis player of all time, she is been so insanely dominant that nobody else. No one will ever catch Michael beat her. If you're still listening, Michael Texas tennis player of all time is hose, Michael loves both. I think John Hewitt, but if I were to say if I were to if we're going to qualify it and say women's gay men's game. We both would have said Serena, you would've said federal. Yeah. Yeah. Okay. That's, but but I think Serena's the answer I don't think you should be penalized. Just because she she's a day if in their primes Serena verse Federer who wins if they played each other just virtually yet played each other no federal would win. But, but I'm seeing that Serena is she like, she's one something like, you know, thirty majors. No, right. I just I just think it's you can't you can't group the games together since they don't Mendome play women. Let's do golf. Okay. One two three. Tiger Woods right everybody. That's a Jack Nicklaus. Oh, did you. Yep. Yet. Which is I wrote Jack Nicklaus. Tiger woods. Nancy it. Okay. So that's three different. And the last one greatest coach of all time. And this company's everything this is any sport, you can think of professional college. Whatever you want to name it greatest coach of all time on three one two three John wooden everybody. Well, yeah. So we had argue with wooden. We had one of you guys said four four was the answer. I said for four was the answer. We were the same unfold different on three. Don't what's interesting if so people now will I've heard this a lot lately, it makes sense, but calling Bill Belichick the greatest coach, you know, in basically ever, he's twenty six Super Bowls. Jackson wanna listen Taito? Why are wiser forgetting about Phil Jackson land? And you went to thirteen finals and one eleven time different groups of players. Yeah. I three hundred players. I'm completely with you. I'll chat last one George. Don't forget about Phil man. I mean, Phil legend, John. So I was I was driving to target yesterday. Okay. In my wife was playing something on Spotify. And it was like, Honey what is this? And it was our 'Grande the song was break up with your girlfriend to come. I'm bored. Okay. I just wondered what is your kind of want to ask Michael this too? But break up with your girlfriend, I'm bored. What does that title imply to you, John? What what is our Yana Guerande trying to say? Day is with a dude and she wants to hook up with them. And she wants the dude to break up with his girlfriend. So she can get with them. That's my that was my assumption. And my right. I think so, but it's just as she's saying that she just wants to get with him. You know, once in this is basically her because this is all coming up. This Pete Davidson stuff right right to the degree that I'm up on the Arianna 'Grande in the Davison, of course, from SNL. What was the other song, Greg? Well, she had a hit song. Which is thank you next or something on you neck next. We'll cheat a hit song with Jesse gain and Nicki Menaj called bang bang. They use it in Cadillac commercials now. Okay. And basically the gist of that song was. I will. I will teach you things when you get with me that your girlfriend doesn't do John. Do you think do you think it's a good message for the fellas out there that they should break up with her girlfriend, you know, to to go and have a have something occur with Arianna day? And then and then you know, just sort of move on. No, I don't think it's a good message. But I think that any guy would break up with his girlfriend if he could get with our Yana Guerande, by the way, amazing are Anna Grandi story that came out this week when Arianna 'Grande was a kid like a little kid. I she grew up either in Florida or Carolina, she grew up somewhere in the south, and she was a huge her parents used to take her to hockey games. Okay. And she got hit in the face twice with hockey pucks. Thanks and the picture that showed like Google this, Arianna 'Grande. Zamboni. Okay. So the. Team basically said because they felt bad that she'd been hit twice with hockey pucks. As like a four year old accused jitney towns age, they put her on his bony and somewhere in a newspaper this week. A writer went back and found the picture of four year old Arianna 'Grande writing on Zamboni with the whole story about how she was a big hockey fan as a kid, and this is like before she and it's a picture of her waving to the crowd on Zamboni in a Florida Panthers game. I just I just go. Yeah. Yeah. Does not look like, Arianna 'Grande. Well, I'm sure she's you know, once you reach a certain status, you can pay for improvements if you know, let's not necessarily imply any paying just a dissolute. She's got like really curly hair. Yeah. And he looks at your kid. All right, but Emec includes the Grandes segment, and that also includes fast-track back with more stuff next ESPN LA, Mason, Ireland show might Trudell is in for Mace. And we'll do a little purgatory coming up at the top of the hour. I just saw Freddie prints running around here. Can we get Jake? We get some in continually sappy love songs the comeback to for the rest of the show. We could maybe like maybe like some Chicago. Are for me to say, I'm sorry possible. Something like that, Jerry. What do you think, you know? So there's a backstreet boys fan. My wife likes Adele, like most women. I mean. Yeah. Yeah. And and I said to her the other day, you know, you realize that every song Adele sings is about being wronged by a man every single one most seems. Yeah, I mean, no, she's got some happy upbeat songs. I said where in the even in the happy upbeat songs. She's talking about out. How how you know? They're all about heartbreak. You seem I think you seem to be mostly right? John ydstie sick talented, but they're all about heartbreak. All right. So we started the show by talking about what? And this is seems to be a hot topic on all the ESPN talk shows that Luke Walton it was reported yesterday. By Brad Turner, the LA times and others that Luke will finish the year as the head coach of the Lakers, and Mike, and I who around the Lakers all the time and full disclosure. We both worked for him. We felt that way for really long time. Greg you're saying the other day when you were hosting Lakers raw that the number one thing that everybody was doing and it was an ugly loss to Atlanta was calling for Luke's head, right? Yes. Everyone's calling for his head just not just because of the loss itself because of everything over the year where he's saying their their thought is that his rotations are bad. There's no offense of sets whatsoever. They can't play without LeBron. And there's all these injuries are all coming onto him. Okay. There's several things about that that I disagree with. But the number one reason the Lakers are in tenth place right now. The number one reason is injuries. And I know nobody likes to blame injuries. But LeBron James Mike has never missed eighteen games in his career ever. So when all of us at the beginning of the year made these predictions, I predicted they'd wind forty-eight games. Which is why I've been running around here saying they're going to finish twenty and five to save. My prediction. Yeah. The well you saw the I wrote a whole art like my whole article at the beginning of the season sort of here's what to look for the whole point of the reason the Lakers. I thought we're going to be in good shape was because the west was going to be so tight that the team that had the advantage was the one who star never got hurt and the Lakers in that sense. Had the best percentage chance of that to happen because LeBron has literally never gotten hurt before. Now, there are two other players in the west that never get hurt. Once James harden ones, Damian Lillard. And so I thought Portland in Houston, we're going to be fine for those same reasons, but you know, in of course, Golden State has five stars. So that can happen too. But the opposite has happened. He has been hurt the the whole stuff about Luke. I I find that to have been the wrong story line also for the season and the best way to to understand that is that he had them as the seventh best defense up until two weeks ago or three years ago when Lonzo got hurt on a team that didn't have the seventh. Best defensive personnel in. The NBA and win. The LeBron got hurt. Lebron got hurt on Christmas day when LeBron got hurt. The Lakers were the fourth seed in the west, and they hammered the warriors hammered him beat them by twenty seven the day. Lebron got hurt. And after that, it's been a different story. So I think that Luke Walton deserves to finish the year. And let me preface by saying that Mike, and I are not in any meetings to talk about personnel. We d- we never ever talked to rob Pelinka or Magic Johnson about anything about roster or coaching decisions. It's just a vibe we have watching them practice and watching them play that they'll reevaluate everybody at the end of the year. But if you're one of the people that called into Brian and Andy or went on Lakers raw with Greg and started calling for the head of Luke Walton your howling at the moon. Yeah. It was always going to he was never going to be fired. But it's to their points and just to play devil's advocate. There's a lot of things that are that don't look well for. Him. I I'm not disputing that. I'm seeing that you can criticize any coach in the NBA. But what I am saying is it's not going to happen now in my opinion. Diaby let me put it this way. I'd be very surprised. I think very surprised if the Lakers changed coaches before the end of the regular season shocked thought was that now that you're going into the all star break after an Atlanta loss that this would be that time if he's coaching February twenty first against Houston. Then it's not happening at all. He is going to be what is going to be coaching February twenty first against Houston. Unless there is something that I do not know an I in I guess, that's always possible. But I think Luke's going to be given the opportunity to finish the year. That's my prediction, by the way. Lebron was asked what the team needs to do. And what they need to focus on while. They're on the all star break you'll hear that next ESPN LA metal. That's what I'm talking about. Try not to fall in love with this on the background. Jay. Yeah. This is a Peterson Tara who is the lead singer for years for Chicago. And he's eat screwed some girl over and then wrote this song. That's what he sees trying to apologize. He saying he'll make it up to her. Right. And he's the only one, but then you should know run off with that girl from the strip club. Yes. I guess what? I think about that. Pantic in that sense. Best Valentine's Day song ever is what it's hard to say Sam sorry. No. No, no. I'm just gonna you said it's hard to say, I'll make love to you. Yeah. The plus probably boy that that's a good one. Yeah. Boys, you bushman? All right. So Lakers have twenty five games left and a lot of people. I've said they're going twenty and five so that will make sure they get to the forty eight that I predict at the start of the year, but that would be if they go twenty and five that'd be a tremendous run. I don't think they need to censor DeVos's going to ask you I ask year you needed that many games just to get into the playoffs this year. I think you you think forty five gets in well, possibly I mean, look part of this whole thing the Lakers can control the like they're going to play all of these teams that are right above them in the saints other than the site bears games left with the clippers in one game left at the kings in in this. So the Spurs, you know, they they won their last game before the. Break before that they had gone. They had only won four of their previous ten. So I think that the top six teams are pretty safe Golden State Denver Oklahoma City Portland, Houston, Utah. I think those teams are pretty safe, but San Antonio is not playing great basketball. They could fall out more the clippers. They have incentive actually to not make the playoffs in terms of keeping their pick. Although I do think they would love to make the playoffs at the Lakers expense. So I don't expect them to quit. And then Sacramento, I think Sacramento has been a great story this year, but they kind of get everybody's be game. The Lakers get everybody's a game. I think that shift some as the playoff mix enters into more prominent. So LeBron was asked the other night in Atlanta. What is the team need to focus on mentally during the break. Here's what he said. All you gotta do compressive away from the game for a little bit. Those guys have a lot more time than now. We'll be right back into it in two days. But we'll just skip fresh get your eyes get your body's, right? Come back with the notion that we you know, we will make playoffs so Mike. How would you answer that question? Where do you think the focus needs to be when they take the court again a week from today next Thursday for these final twenty-five, what's the most? If you were making a checklist of things that the Lakers need to focus on what do you? What do you think that the top? Well, I think if you're a fan of this team, and you've been watching them, you know, from afar and trying to go about through in do all of the things. Do you have in your daily life? You look at them. You think wait a second. They have the Brian James they're twenty eight and twenty nine th they make the plus what the heck's wrong. It must be the coach. Yeah. You get you get to subtract eighteen games that LeBron didn't play in from that. Well, okay. But that's that's my point though. That's if you're really paying close attention and your following it everyday. And if you are like like you, and I are it's not that hard to explain why the season's gone, that's it has between injuries between all of the stuff at the trade deadline there. I can I can sort of explain for the most part why the Lakers are a game under five hundred what I think is important to remember is LeBron James, and we said this earlier in the show he is going to ramp things up after the break. He always does he on a given night when when he wants to be he is still the best player in the world. And I just think they're enough nights. The Lakers have against all of these teams in the west. And by the way, they've won on the road, Golden State. They won't add Oklahoma City. They've won at Portland they should have won at Houston. There are fifteen when Lonzo hurt his ankle. They've won. They've do. They win at San Antonio. That was here they lost. They lost its Santoni this year. So they won that Sacramento. Like, they're they want. Dallas. They've they've basically one they've won a lot of games against western coverage teams that they're going to be playing against and the Lakers are going to need to win that game more than those other teams. They they just are. That means something in the NBA it it's not easy. But it means that you like they are going to have to bring a different level of effort, and guess what? After the break. There's no more excuses. There's no one else wants here about the trade deadline anymore. You know, no one wants to hear about all. They've got time that stuff goes out. And I think one push comes to shove in that context. That's when you do want LeBron on your team. And so I do think that there's there's enough ground to be made up for them to get into the playoffs. And I think that they'll make it. I I would say that the one thing that stands out to me that they've got to do is. They've got to get back to playing team defense. They had a click gambling for a lot of Rondo gambles for steals LeVine. And sometimes they get them. And when they get them at energizes the team, but I think you have to almost get a bunker mentality to pay attention to those numbers that you read earlier in the. Show when they used to be seventh and team defense. And now they've dropped a twenty eighth. I mean that's fallen off a cliff for the for the three period rushes to everybody. Dial in getting Lonzo back will help. And and again, I don't think they're going to get Lonzo back Thursday. No, I think Lonzo is probably a couple of weeks away after that. But you got to play the games are scheduled in here. Come the Houston Rockets. A really good team with the best offensive player in the league coming in here. But Houston went into Minnesota last night. Minnesota beat them. So, you know, they're beatable. Right. So I think that. Yeah. Of course, and the thing that you just mentioned if you want me to isolate one thing that the legs have to do to get back to it. Of course, it is defense. Of course, it's the energy and effort, but I think that LeBron is the biggest factor even in that. Okay. And it's not like if LeBron comes with playoff LeBron approach and not that he's going to do that every single game. But the majority of these games if LeBron in the first quarter, you can tell John watch watch the go back and watch the Miami game. This. Season when the Braun is on it and focused and comes out aggressive that is a different team and the rest of the guys fall in line. And I do I do think you can put that pressure on him because he is the best player. I think that that's what's that's going to make the difference. It's not going to be because the young guys all just sort of galvanize and figure it out you it has to come from the Brown in if it comes from LeBron down. They'll be okay.

I mean, Stevie Wonder Stevie Wonder words, no more Al green beyond this like, you know. Hey, let's stay together or something, you know, but not not not boys to men. Yeah. I mean, I I mean, I'm not that much older than you. But I just feels like that's way, more romantic than boys high school in the nineties than boys to men for. Sure. Yeah. Trudell? But I think you yes. Yeah. Yeah. I was early nineties. So we've been talking a lot today about a lot of different things. But I want to get your opinions on a discussion, we had have you guys heard about this that, you know, the whole pro golf tour is in town were you listening when we were talking about this tipping situation. All right. So I'll reset it for people who weren't listening earlier met cooter who's in town this week and playing it revere. And by the way, they're back on the course at revere. They had a rain delay. But they're playing right now they resumed at one thirty. So they're back. Dozens one of the physical, therapists, they're taking care of the gopher excellent. So mad could worthy appointment or day. Not there. But we're these in Maui playing somewhere, you know rate. Yeah. Exactly. So Matt Kuchar is a pro golfer who went to Cancun, and he was playing in a professional tournament and his caddy the guy he normally uses was unavailable. So Cooper hired a local guy some Mexican guy that we knew the course said cut a deal with them said I'll give you three thousand dollars for the weekend. Which is a good deal for this guy. Didn't make a lot of money, and he's I'll tell you. What if I do? Well, if I play, okay? I'll I'll give you a thousand dollar bonus you four thousand and the guy agrees to it. And they got to set deal. Well, couture plays out of his mind in wins the whole tournament one point three million dollars. So nice check it is in and he gives the guy five thousand dollars even more than he said he would give him because he did really well, and the guy starts talking about the other caddies in the other caddies say, you know, when you're gonna win tournament. If yours regular caddie you're supposed to get ten percent. If you're filling catty you're supposed to get five. So five percent would be sixty five grand and ten percent would be one hundred twenty nine grand. And so the caddy says to cooter, hey, you know, have a little something for the effort. And Cuccia says I'll give you fifteen grand more give you twenty grand to get you to shadow cash and the guy says, no, no, no you're supposed to give me like sixty five. I don't want that, Freddie. How should couture have handled this? Okay. And Michael wants wants it put into the equation that this guy ratted couture out by going to a golf magazine and making this public the first thing I was going to say as I heard Michael Thomson, and I rarely disagree with him. You'll take nothing like this. I am from the Vince McMahon school of business, which is if I offer you this much money once we have a deal, that's the deal. Vince McMahon used to have pro wrestlers who on the day of the pay per view, say wrestlemainia would say you'll may go out there. I want one hundred thousand dollars cash and he's now held hostage by this. Right. And what did he do? What would man do? Well, he would pay and then that person's next match Vince would use a wrestler that they use the term Hooker, which is a guy who's gonna hook. If you and wrestling you legit you. So the following Monday night, raw whoever held him hostage on the Sunday. Paper view got more bar over by gentleman named Mark Henry who was the world's strongest man at the time. He was Vince is like main guy. So I agree with Michael on this. Well known thing. Yes. A well known LL wrestling all part of the wrestling circles, there's bands that fans knew that knew all that. Pretty pricey. You would stick to your gun now like could and could you by the way says he has thinking to his gun now he has dealt with this way wrong. Okay. Like for me, sixty grand to buy that kind of good press when you just one one point to pay the sixty grand. But this guy did him wrong went public. They already had a deal. He already offered him more. And once the guy heard like, hey, man, you should try to get a better deal because we would get a better deal. Then the guy's like, oh, hey, you did me wrong, man. I want more. So I get where he's coming from. But I'm with Michael Thompson on this one, George what do you feel Kuti coocher handle this wreck cheapskate? Okay. First of all this probably a language barrier here. Okay. That we're dealing with. I said something that was very nice, Mike. What was the thing? He said about for. He basically said paraphrasing. This guy makes two hundred dollars a day. He should be happening. Two hundred dollars a week saying that Jason state them. The deal is the. I think both guys along with Saddam who choose a cheapskate. He probably took advantage of a guy with the language barrier issue here, and who's probably again only make it two hundred dollars a day because he's working at some resort golf course. And I don't think it was. I don't think it was a day. I think it was a week. I think it was two hundred dollars a week. Okay. So okay. So he took advantage of the guy in that situation. And then the people around him like, so how much is he paying you? And and when he tells them they're like, they're looking out for the caddy's, the caddies are looking for the caddy. So I don't blame. He knew that. It was five percent. Okay. He was trying to be a cheapskate. Like he knew what the parameters were for a regular. Okay. Now. Let me let me play devil's advocate and go back to a point ready made the death. I I agree with you going back to Freddie's, Freddie, stand. Take advantage of the Mexicans and cathode George Lord had cooter stunk it up. You're listening to say thank you had. He played poorly and missed the cut and made zero dollars. He still would have paid that guy three thousand bucks. He would've would've taken the hit. So could you not make the argument that cooter just cut a good deal? So let me ask you a question if he gets a in caddy on the PGA tour and misses the cut and make zero dollars does that caddy make zero dollar? No, he makes whatever they negotiated. Upfront. That's my point. Okay. Well, then that's kind of deal. Hey, I'll give you three grand this weekend. You catty for me? And I missed the cut. I'm still giving you three grand. Okay. So I then I win the whole tournament. Right. But that three grand that changes things, you didn't you didn't not only make the cut you won the whole damn thing. So all of a sudden that arrangement is is null and void as far as I'm wanting, Mike. He said was could you goes, I sleep fine tonight. And I'm going to sleep fine in night. I would not sleep at night. Freddie guy would have given him the sixty five K and a good night. Good luck charm man, made his life, by the way, we have double Ramona on TV right now we have run around the horn on one TV on sportscenter Keith Olbermann on the other fish, come on ramonic- probably won't be sleeping as well. Tonight. Now that everybody's ripping him this being achieved there's enough gas in the vehicle to transport four Bank robbers being get away location. There are now five that is not the deal. One guy has to leave what the Bank robbers do. They sat up fifth guy threw him out because they knew the deal, then that's all that's all the other point that I wanted to introduce to this is what if this guy's really bad caddy. And you didn't help we just went through a win. Just got a tweet caddies. This is from Michael gab law. I think I get boss Mike, put your name caddies are paid that much because they know they're golfers tendencies there strengthen weaknesses this guy. He just picked up carried a bag and gave him yard. But even Fillon guy who doesn't know the guy still makes five percent. I think both inter true. He should have paid the guy. But it also sounds like he didn't necessarily contribute a ton to couture. We don't know that we don't have the largest I'm assuming that he knew the course, I I think that you, you know, so you get the course that's a good point his home course, whatever Goldman is because they're about to go down there. Again, you know that golfers going to give him a ton. Never plays going to be Michael's point is going to look like for Hiram knowing that this guy can't keep his mouth shut. If someone doesn't like Kucher, they might we said it's like the drew Brees thing though. Right. Where remember where he he ordered takeout? Yeah. And then some. Oh, some whoever twenty bucks when order two hundred bucks for the food. Tweeted it and whatever I don't know what to do when I do take out. Do you guys tip? Yes. Twenty percent. Just because I don't ever get done dirty like, right? No matter what it's twenty. Sameh nobody and I will tip just because I don't want the I'd ever I was like, I don't want the deadspin five bucks. Donald lead thing. Like ESPN is bad Tipper in this argument with Michael says that if he gets bad service, he doesn't tip, and I said you have to your Michael Thompson. Yeah. Bad services nothing to do with it. He goes no tip is a reward for good service. And I said it doesn't matter. You're not than I am. It's not worth the bad press. You'll get and I think I finally won him over Michael's actually genders Michael time, his generous because it becomes the headline there reads Klay Thompson father is mad at the end of the day. I think Michael just wanted to have the argument. He feels no shame though. But but I mean, he this year, especially he's been taking people out to dinner left. And right. He took all of us out to dinner, twelve of us, basically. I want to take my mom out. Like just last one of my parents will come to town, right, Michael? And everybody would come is the only time he would leave the hotel in the obviously since my dad's passing. It's Cindy is gonna come up to Boston. We're and take her out, and he paid for like fifteen people at this night. He had a great line at the dinner. He was introducing. Cindy, Mike's mom to everybody else. And Michael goes, hey, do you guys know Cindy, she raised two beautiful kids and Trudell? Yeah. Good line, George. You mentioned Ramon was on two different TV's the reason Ramona is getting a lot of TV today as she broke a story this morning. That was interesting. She says the NFL went after Adam silver. Yeah. And he Sean has said that before and that they tried to get Adam silver is she doing stealing keys breaking. No, no, no. No. No. But key, I agree with you Keyshawn story. And Ramona's taking the credit right now, it's like a year ago. Well, so, but what was interesting, but strays Adam said, he's not he didn't think about it. He's moved past it. He's hispan- his whole life at the NBA is going to say it the NBA. But unless it's something like morally wrong, I much money would it cost to let me sleep with your wife. Nobody's gonna do that. But this to change leagues. Everybody has a price. Right. If they came to him and said, Adam look, we're at league in crisis. We're the richest league in the world, we'll pay you a billion dollars to be the NFL Commissioner doesn't have to do it. I mean, they're not gonna Bill. Right. Just trying to get enough. It were six billion. Came out. I'm trying to like could Cadel made wet like forty million. Yeah. Yeah. Like if Freddie gave him the I just watched the godfather if they gave him an offer he couldn't refuse he'd have to do. It all goes back to wrestling for me the million dollar, man. Ted diaz. And he was humiliated people in the crowd with a hundred dollar Bill and make them do and people would willingly do it. And these weren't like setups. This was like live. So anything could have happened. But Vinci's philosophy was everyone. Vince McMahon created the character of the million dollar, man. Ted db from down, south, rain and said, I have a gimmick for you. It's going to work you have to sign with me. I can't tell you. What is till you signed and Ted dibiase. Trusted him. It was like. Yeah. Okay. And then boom the million dollar man was born that said there's a number for everyone. Like people have said, you know. Oh, you're not retired. You would do this. You would do that. If the number was stupid, then. Yeah. Okay. Let me of that. No. And then a stupid number. I think would have to be over one hundred million dollar, right? Let me push back on that the when you have a certain amount of money, and I'll introduce these supermax contract and the NBA that the whole purpose of that was so the guys wouldn't leave. Well, guess what guys? When you can make two hundred million. You don't care as much of its two hundred thirty four million. But then so. Yeah. But then so they're making money out outside. But my point is Adam silver is making multiple what it is. But he's making multiple millions of dollars tens of millions. Everybody loves him the players Levin. The league is going up and up and up and up. Right. Like there's to me that he's happy. There is no that's the kind of thing where he doesn't need any more money in the NBA would give him more, by the way. If you needed to do to say, here's the NFL's offering. Hey, guys. Look, I want to say, but you know, give me an extra ten. Yes, sir. Please. Where can I send the money? Oh, use Kellerman. As an example, I was visiting with max earlier in the year and max is a New York born and bred guy, but he loved living here and he loved to an African drive here. He loved living here. His one of his girls was born here and. He got the proverbial offer. He couldn't refuse. He got an offer to go back and be one of the hosts I take and they just pay them so much money that he couldn't say, no. And I said I said so you ever coming back. He goes time for grit every day that I turned it down, and because he could have made enough money here to be happy. So maybe George there are things more important than money. So to your point, right? Like one of my closest friends in the businesses, Dan laboratory who for years was trying people are trying to steal him to leave Miami move to LA moved to new he and he's never left. And now he's got a kingdom basically SPN eventually said fine. You don't want to leave the kingdom there. And that's what he's done. He stuck to his guns. And he was an he's now kind of reaping the benefits. But yeah, he always he always told me don't ever take a job solely because of money. Yeah. He's right. All right. More purgatory coming up next ESPN LA.

Solskjaer the Right Man?

"Hello that welcome to the show. Clip football is back. Remember that? That's the stuff that fills in all those gaps in between international games. You believe grit. Fondly one hundred you've done some. By someone who did. Yeah. Plateful Steve Nicol, Craig Burley you did too. Well, Craig guide. My body is with us looks to get your livable Spurs, some from Lionel Messi, but we have to start with the lead story. Don't wait yet. Looks talked about it yesterday. And it continues all sold shar saying he's gonna put United back on talk. He's gotta make the great again, the permanent appointment, of course, announced it in the last twenty four hours. Steve you on the show yesterday haven't chance to get your initial reaction. What is is this the right move for unite? I was surprised. And the reason I was surprised because I thought they would wait until they're the end of the season. Not only really finish up the Premier League. But to see what may be available in the market as far as monitors goal. This would suggest that what your team is definitely not going to be available Sunday collegue. It would seem is not going to avail lable account understand why they wouldn't have waited. All goodness. Don't great job since he came. Yes. But the truth is as one games that the supposed to one, you know, the the proper team in PS g annihilated one their fee caught by wolves. I mean, I would have thought United would wait till the end of the season and see whether this this boss that of heart sincere arrived is you're gonna last. No lose four or five games between known in. So do you think poacher -tino or Allegra would have been better off? Yes. Absolutely. I mean, CV wise experiencewise. It's Natan deal with socia-. But I'll tell you. What is well munya native board? They're going to love it only have somebody complain in more than about players given marine. You're going to see that's not the guy. I wanted to new all get all wet gap. Cody is where this Gabby Evan had judged a way on this yet were you surprised? I was apprised like Stevie that it happened. Now. In fact, I wrote a whole column about this on our on our website. Stevie points out. He's results have been very good. But against the top seven in the Premier League or top seven sides, including the cops and Perry says your man, it's four wins one draw and three defeats which is not bad. But not stellar either. You wonder what happened because we were told that there was going to be a process we were told to trust the process, we were told he was there and injuring basis, and they would make a definitive decision in the summer. What suddenly prompted after consecutive defeats by the way to decide. No, no, we have to go with Solta think that's a bit of Ed scratcher. Steve's right to in many ways. This is an easy choice because most of the fans back it back. He's he's a pleasant guy. He's brought the buzz back to to to Old Trafford. He's a lot more pliable the Marino orphan, how where things don't go his way. He's not gonna throw players on the boss. He's not gonna go and criticise Woodward in the media, and and earns what less than half of what puts chino would have made. Or certainly be nearly a third as much as what what marina would've made. So he saves you money as well. Which also means that if an year's time you need to make a change it's not going to be as expensive to do that. So I think. All these factors played into it. But it certainly a very on wood warden type choice. If that's word has piece today. You did. Then read the though. Hey. I don't wanna go for ground from yesterday because we had quite a lengthy on yesterday. And you know, clearly if you look at the monitor visiting best month for the job. No, he's not. Well, however as a great PR exercise for mine United the moment, but as Stevie mentioned there. Could go side of. No. But it could go quickly between known this season. And all sudden PR exercise and all that goodwill as starting to dumping away that getting into this. And that's a difficult and the skinny thing that God you said too scary as if United Nita chain make another money to change next year. It will be cheaper again. What possession are they going to be? Yeah. It's always dangerous reading Twitter com. Isn't it? Does there about the fact of quality only not have an impressive resume when he took over the Basel on on air. Okay. Look, I was sitting here defending those guys. But let's not take that. Sure. Why don't you go? The preface dangerous. That's a big league. So let's not go there. But but let's for a second. Argue the fact that only gonna source car has done a tremendous job since he has come in. Right. And so if you make this appointment now, maybe you're saying to the players, look, this is the guys that you want this guy in place you've been playing well for this guy. And maybe we use this momentum to get ourselves into Champions League next year. Maybe we make that case. Maybe we make this run. Maybe make the tough for that. Perhaps. We're not gonna able to do wasn't even a dream. When just when he wasn't in charge. The thing I would say that since when the we go around firing guys getting ready to guys that are actually doing good job and doing a great job of it. And so for all the things that I'm that. I'm hearing that souls card cannot do it hasn't done hasn't been able to do it doesn't have his resume by the things that he's doing. Now, does those things have no value the things that that that he's getting out of the players that things that he's getting out of this team that other managers who are not getting out of this team. That has some value. And I think to some degree justifies the decision to say, you know, what you take the steam forward gap just quickly. Only thing I would say that Allie is he ain't going anywhere between now and the end of the season. So the question is why you have to point him in March after after less than one hundred days in charge. And also about the things he's doing now leave the PS g game with with with ten regulars out to one side. I didn't play well again in their last two games against arsenal wolves he didn't play well against palace some of that bounds early on that's kind of worn off in terms of performances. Let's not let's not take away from what he has done. Okay. If you wanna make cases for somebody else. Go ahead and do that. But taking away we don't know. But I think I think God this because he's saying he's essentially saying under appreciated what he's what he has done to this point. This thing was floundering floundering and midtable. This thing was nowhere near the pace of the top four. And now they have a chance to make it into the tough for there's some value to that. At least in my mind. You just wonder if some of the optics this time, it's just come off to worst anything to do with it. And it was a development what he's done, right. We've all whole praise them for what he's done. But this is my chest United. This is this is this is one of the biggest teams on the planet guy can over who's been coalition and the academy United and the the Norwegians foster vision. And you think spell cowed if which which was an obsolete disaster to take over one of the biggest teams in the world think he's going to turn them into a little bit and challenging for Champions League. But it's pretty significant addition isn't we showed up bowl points than city and Liverpool. No denying that. But you do lesson the players on the floor. Right. And as I said, yes, they think Marino had taken it such an extent solo that you actually wanted this the plaza and he. I'm not taking away from him. He went and Hoppy go lucky gets the play whale. That gets got some good pictures and against we teams the bought the Bose, then there's some great results all of a sudden, they pasting home PS PSG was done in the doldrums maracas victory embarrass donor. How the dead another. She's going to fly again. I just think for the one of the biggest clubs in the world to get some. The opportunity toughness sinking sinking ship, but it certainly logging to tell not round up nineteen games, say vehicle responsibility. Now, I think that's a big game. Impermanent Schaja will be at home to what for meanwhile regime. Sterling continuing to grab all the headlines to his exploits for England of red hot Brahima, Ron Rahim. And the reason I bring it up is the ballots rant for the plan. The the plans will be voting on this over the next couple of weeks and Z sterling sick and favourite to win it some distance behind the Van Dyke, according to the automakers guero money and saw also at that. Would you give it to norms because if you defenders Dake? Yeah, Greg has been nothing. American to sterling then funday? Oh, yeah. So you have to vote now, we're still eight games to go. So you don't know what the outcome's gonna be? I mean if there's pros and cons for both to be to be clear of everybody. Brian sterling, no question has taken these game to a level that and it was I don't think thought he was capable of to the point where every time he gets the ball. You think he's going to school going to set somebody up on you're going to terrorize defense? Van Dyke is is that he is so far ahead of anybody in the world right now as a defender. I mean on neyland miles away from anybody. There's nobody close too. So. I mean, the games ghouls and a few that game's about goals, and you give it to styling. But if you think about them. Certainly something that you don't see these days proper defender. Then you give it devante. But I guess either where you come on. Right. Allie think the what I find outstanding about Raheem sterling is that he is standing above in a team and Manchester the city where there's a whole lot of talent. And yet he is the highlight of a team that again, you can pick and choose whatever player you want for your starting eleven certainly has been outstanding. But to me, there's no question that if we were vote now as to who should be the player of the year is I one dike. Gap. Your chance to weigh in on this who would you vote Goto? To me. It's a up. So that I always looked to the next criteria. Which is if you took these guys out of their team how much would their team suffer and you take sterling out of city this season? You know, maybe they'd be seconds few points back. I think if you take Liverpool. So if you take Van Dyke out of Liverpool this particular season the way they're playing this year. I think they're way way out of the title race. So for that reason, I go Van Dyke. In case, you haven't heard we now have a YouTube page. Subscribe. I can get old you'll ESPN FC on to Hans content as well YouTube. FC? The resumption clemmie league action. Liberal two points player of Manchester City will be heading played a game more Spurs still United and Chelsea in that tight race for the full Liverpool against the game of the weekend coming up at Anfield on Sunday livable the team in fall free wins in the last four Spurs with out a win in the last four Stevie livable. Great recco. To against biz particularly live only won one staring twenty four years. I have to share a comb. Not just looking at the last few does this pose of hard. But when I think of what they're going on the field in the middle of the pump to defend against Liverpool is is defensively. It's defenders there. You know, if you if you play when Yama he can get around. He's on a percent winks Zo dials. Oh, you're gonna drop Erickson by Ken. Daily Ali soco fischel who is not even a central midfield. Let's be honest these when he's the bullies Ronin forward. So defensively I just don't see how the have the power to stop Liverpool in the middle of the park. Wade things can happen after international breaks. Sometimes great. It's not unthinkable to toss. It's not it's not she's not relegation fodder against Phil. You know level. Well, say need is more. It's actually no because. Best tight, but they sold them barely China L in the season and know, the big gap and there with the entities Liverpool at home the plane will. And as you mentioned suppose record told him is not great so allies pointed to love appeal at the moment. They could match the second longest street in Premier League history of being unbeaten at home livable. If they avoid defeat hair they going to do that are liberal going to avoid the yes, they're going to avoid defeat. And this is more. I think about Spurs, and we just saw the numbers. The fact that in the last four games seven goals allow so for much as we find a team in Spurs, and maybe an attack you if they can defend out of the midfield TV just talked about. And they're also giving goals hasn't been great. I just don't see when you put all that together. House. Birds gets a result away from home. I gang. Liverpool. Yes. Good catch up against Portugal, or no this is right in your wheelhouse. Isn't it? Yeah. And I would imagine the hazard a guess that even as we speak Porteous sitting there trying to come up with something left field trying to come up with with the solution. I don't know that it's simplest dropping Ericsson midfield. You would imagine some kind of back three some with with the attacking players up to pitch maybe try and just simply to defend higher because there's nobody defendant midfield is really really difficult to do. But on paper the option of defending deep and trying to deny that space. It's not a great blueprint. It's not the most inventive thing in the world. But if you do have your defenders sitting deep clog the space, and it's harder for Sala for me. No money. That's the best. You can do. I mean, that's why live report clear favorites. Meanwhile, returning from international, perhaps the most interesting situation faces column Hudson adore all the headlines after his starring role England in the euro qualifying. But of course, what will be the case to Stanford bridge Murchio salary Chelsea manage thing. I don't know if hunting, and we'll start at cod if we have has on billion Pedrosa was not really very easy to stop in every match but Premier League Europa league FA count for me. It's the same for me. There's no difference really very confident in EMMY stopped at a lot of matches probably not in the Premier League. But that's by shots says sorry Stevie if you were Maritchev salary. Would you be you? If you were you. Well. I'm setting think, Michelle. Okay. So this kid plays in Europe elite, please please fund SaaS thing he goes in the international Jew. It plays international football as tastic arguably the monitor the much, but the Premier League all of them. He's not ready. He says that's just by chance hasn't means dying permanent. China's up. Sorry Columbine just by Chun's picking on a mixture name would you put him in the nine eleven? Pedro, he's favorite Pedro recently. And the site the out so Pedro be what would be the one to oversee Williams been coming off the bench. I would give them a star. But it seems that is where he wants to play them. The other side of the coin the unit police has become equally important tumorous. You're sorry as the primarily talk for run on because of the Champions League potential qualification. Let's see if it continues to play their live in deep south of this competition. Yeah. Chelsea cod. If cost part of this busy weekend Premier League fixtures of the games on Saturday and Sunday, livable and Chelsea both in action on Sunday city the United on Saturday a Monday game this weekend as well. Osco against new council. The Champions League finals you vent prohibitive favorites. Four to one home to get pasta. I XE in the quarter-finals fish lake April the tenth in Amsterdam that's twelve days away on Cristiano Ronaldo's injury his clip manager. Allegra had this to say you started moving again, but caution is needed. He'll return when he's at his best. And there's no longer danger of relapse. So let's bring in Dr Makoni show, we gab I know you don't, but you aren't good at reading between the lines. What's your suspicion willy be upon that first leg in twelve days time? I would tend to lean towards no in the sense that the word coming from from event is that obviously they're going to assess him closer the time. But they're very clear on the fact that Ronaldo's happy to play through pain. He's done that before. But what he won't do is said this as well. It's better to base one game than one month's. They're not this is a two legged affair. They would rather. There's even the slightest risk of re-injure they would much rather. Sit him out of the first leg than have in there for the return leg and look without disrespecting. I XE you vent to certainly feel that they have the team even without Cristiano to get through the first leg and give themselves a good shot at qualifying with Restano in the return leg while you know, when we now that we're contractually obliged, all no messy to it's interesting words to say about the national team when I made the decision to return, the many who criticized. Of the six year old son asked me, dad. Why do they crucify you? Tina? I tell them just a handful of people at shown my designed to play Argentina and don't need to prove this to anyone that Allie continues to beg belief that there are any doubt is a toll. But it's a first of all is six year old son is very well versed. Yes. Utilize in terms like crucify. Which in at times is what has happened with leeann missing Argentina the truth is and people may not want to hear this. But the messy incredibly is more appreciated outside of Argentina than he is in Argentina. Now, there's a whole background this. There is an obsession with alone that has been there for years years and years, and that will continue some people some people locally Messier corporate superstar not a real Argentina guy who's being gone from Argentina for a long time. Whatever the case may be you cannot deny he's telling you cannot deny his he's accomplished. And I appreciate what he says. You know, what whoever those people that talk? And don't appreciate what I've done for my country. So be. I'm going to continue to because it's what he wants to do. He wants to represent his country. And I respect them for that. Because he could just take the easy way out simply like he wind it and say, I don't want any part of this. He knows that he's going to be in the middle of every pressure cooker match that Argentina's going to face, and he's going to be at the center of that attention, and he wants to be a part of it glut too. But a six year old sons missed mystifying reaction is justified. Isn't it does it? No. Well, he does seem as Ali sad. It seems to be this and fought Jae shin with what Mario was able analogy Tina, HUD, success and the messy eater and comparison the World Cup certainly haven't had. Haven't had success. But fair plates is Ali said, easy, just go. Most people would probably go buy, but he's a class individualism. I mean, how many times it must games for for buffalo? Hardly any the friendly against Venezuela. The lowest played in it. Why was he planning a friendly when he's games coming out for the club the guys committed Stevie? I mean, if you even if you have a needed proof of commitment, this is because you basically stepping on the field, and you know, unless you get a hard trick unless unless you team wins. You know, the you get and to have the stomach to think that every time you step on the field. You will do exactly what the thing you can't tell you what take some stomach out and to that point. People. Does have a selective memory about your nail messy and what he has done or not done with Argentina. They seem to focus on the on the things that he has come up short on ignoring the fact that Argentina has been in those positions because of him, and because of his performance, you just mentioned a hattrick. It was his hat trick away from home. I guess Ecuador that put Argentina into the World Cup last time around people just kind of dismiss that. There's a lot of that in his career. They just people. For somewhat reason have a very easy way of somehow saying, you know, what that's not important enough. We just wanna see you doing in the world co final otherwise, it doesn't count messy emboss alone back in action this weekend as league at returns remember bounce load up all but have it ramped up ten points ahead athletic Madrid with Real Madrid a fervor two points back. In case you missed it. You couldn't have missed. It's been everywhere this week. The ICC schedule is out show starts at July sixteenth role against Chievo goes through to Olga tenth of the ICC foam into new ventures. Great Christian Vieri sat down without Sebastian Saleh's. Would you make of that IT the truth? I didn't think that you went to school was gonna win that game because it was a very very hard team to play against the very very strong in defense, and you know. I knew that. No, no, no, big t- one or two to play against them. And you've interest them that lost two zero over there. So I don't want to score three goals or even to Bose. To strategic. I just said that. Wasn't going to happen. You know, then the number seven came know. Scored three goals and just dominated the game. And then you know you played phenomenal game. I think bisque game of the year. And they just destroyed that let go like physically mentally really hungry that really wanted to win. And you know, when you've got a shrike like Renaldo that like scored more than six hundred and fifty goes in his career you just hungry hungry of goes hungry hungry to win. You know, so scored three goals and was an amazing game. You know? And now it's not going to be to be you run all those dealing with this muscular injury. Do you think they should risk him against? I actually do you think you've enters can get the job done with our another. I don't know how how bad it is. You know? So they were doctors they're going to see how it is. But I don't think you can't Reese player when you've got a mushroom problem because the first movement you do you're going to tell you eight hundred percent. So if he plays his if he doesn't play complete. The home game. But you bet to win over there. Even with our non with even if I is fantastic deemed about young players are amazing. Very quick. Uber's. Strong team with a lot of experience lot of big players. So that counts in these games. Do you think you've into the favorites for Champions League? I always think boss's favorite just because a messy because a Macy's was the way they play their style of play. I think you know, it's very very hard to beat them at the no camp. And you know when MRIs is in shape, I'm gonna miss his fees. Stoppable, you know, so I was my number one picture was Barcelona. But then you know, you as under under there, but with Renaldo, maybe this there, you know, it's after said that issues an amazing Champions League. Main CD Liverpool. You've got big teams, you know. And you know, you've as their bosses, so I think it's an amazing Champions League. And let's see what happens, but it's going to be very very exciting. Another one of your former clubs Inter Milan. Find themselves in guests. The word is interesting weird situation. Motto Cardi, what do you make very interesting? You know? No, no that took his armband the captain away from him. And so a lot of discussion there he had a knee problem. They're saying or they saying some people saying he has won something we're saying that he just doesn't wanna play, you know, as a teammate given everything that's gone on. Would it be difficult to accept somebody like that back into the locker room? I was say one thing the dressing rooms most important thing. Okay. So you have to be good with your teammates. And you got the director of the prisoner known cares about them because you never see them. You know? The dressing room and the coach that's who you stay with every day for years. Every you see your teammates more than your wife. You know? So you go so you got to be good with them. And if you're not good with them, you gotta talk you get a meeting the coach told him when everything's okay, then move you move on. But if they don't move on within the means is something that we don't know. You know? So it's not easy. It's not easy. Sure. I always say that you know, you gotta talk you got to talk with the coach in their teammates because that's your family. As Syria resumes. Reminder of why we left off you vendors at Napoli well ahead, but inter against Lancia for show is the game a one of the games of the weekend. That's on Sunday is B N. Plus, we just had very talking about the marrow economy situation. Gab once you what's your thought? What's your suspicion? Is he going to be involved going to feature of inter against Lancia? I ever sent. He's going to be on on the bench with most likely Kate to day starting up front. China's these own guy he's welcomed in back in training. The guys were way international duty only came back in mid week. We haven't seen so much together. So I think he still wants to send a message to of that you have to earn your way back in the game Sunday to twenty on ESPN. Plus the only great game at the weekend because we've also wrong against Napoli. We'll have that THEO on ESPN news that is fifth against second Sunday. Extra time the segment directed you. You'll questions on such in all shapes and forms and sizes YouTube channels, one of the places you can go to see that spin FC content. It is welcome back to football anything. We're looking looking forward to this weekend. Liverpool tone them. Doesn't matter. If I just wanted to just in case, a huge something else. Many wasn't real migrated west. West coast whose team. Yeah. There you go. But Ryan gates all right locks look forward to thanks for your company gentleman and got to he was with us. So you next time. Oh, yes. Date extra time. I one of the post international breaks period. And actually that's subject of Jones. First question. Why is it on hold on? Was the first one the question. What what no no this is the first time the post of the post international break, we're transitioning from international club. All we know it where he'll be. We've been here. We did extra time Thursday while Friday. Yes. Any games the actual games? Well, you said the championship you said, this was the national you say, this is a fuss. One international games games for next choosing for you. I was trying to make the segue into the first question, the international food. I thought it went very smooth until speed bump clearly. Jordan wise, it the gab seems to be the one that actually embraces every international. I enjoy myself says Joel, but it doesn't seem to be that way amongst the majority of as best we post. You've always enjoyed them. Enjoy them because you got a little bit of a break. But I what I what I do. Enjoy actually the way international breaks today compared to what they were like when when when Stevie was playing because the games are spread out. So you can actually watch them, and they're all part of of something you can actually they're not all used to all be on the same time the same day. This is better more exciting to me and moves on. But yeah, I enjoy them because I'm joined football, but comfortable any day. I this in their natural break. Minnesota beat Arkansas. Germany Germany was a good game. Everybody's beaten out. Tina? Don't be like. Hey, hey, Kazakhstan. Rely do Kazakhstan relax said, everybody's been Scott on well known you. Most of all international games where on one day. White ball. Bosh gets to being a little turning of the tide. Just just maybe even since the World Cup in the nation's side is showing that we gotta get back to. He's talking on the next one. Raw the long six months of the fat have a night for actual intemperate. What my colleagues? Thing he say, let me. Looking for some of the foreign shit, as am I totally pulling that out of? I I'm so anyway, it I'm saying maybe we don't get enough. Love. All right. You see? Yeah. So we just see. Gotta get. I try says. What was the biggest upset the most shocking result in a football match you've ever witnessed? I guess I could be one of final played in Walk-ups. Final Germany against Brazil, seven one battery sold was ridiculous. Yeah. In see a company now. Nobody's that. And dementia that Stevie. Not figures. Upset shocking result upset, I guess I guess playing. Why would be when we lost ninety eight. This show. Yeah. After go against Ali. I mean, the Brazil lost none as the school line the school. I was mentoring which is like n Brazil, correct? Mind boggling was was stunning because I'm Tim NFL Cup final. I mean, just completely contrasting styles. The crazy gang in the culture club as cold it home that day. Oh. I actually go with Aglietta for World Cup Cameroon Argentina opening ninety ninety. That was the biggest ever. So well Chinese gaffe. I agree with the ones you guys mentioned on two other ones out there euro two thousand four that final Greece against Portugal in Portugal with with Shana Rinaldo. And also all the old generation moves Figo recall, those guys. Was something else. Remember to it was also the summer after the portrait one had won the treble. Nobody gave Greece prayer before. The turn it and Portugal batter. Them in terms of taking shots on goal. And then he avenging angel Angelus career stairs rising into the heavens. And and scoring the only goal in that game for me club football Reese, when you're two thousand four certainly right up. Then them are winning the euros in ninety two when they were homebake ation, and how to be brought back to begin with say a bigger show, the one I said. US England and the fifties. Won't you chose against point you, bro. None of the sold out for the World Cup and sexy six. That's the biggest. Finally. Craig bellies bad is the provider. This question should back.

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

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

United's Run Continues

"Hello there. Welcome into the show. The holiday season may be gone. Football's at festive fixtures, keep on keeping all they. Seems a long time ago agent. Haley was shack his and Craig Burley in the studio mock out to joining us today from Manchester. He's outside the stadium ahead of the city livable game. Tomorrow also Mungo be weighing in on the Christian pulisic transfer news launched to get into that. Let's start with his future employers. Chelsea held nil nil by Southampton today at home result that does know famous once so ever the remain in full place at mentioned United the winners on the day. We'll talk about them later on his well getting the job done a Newcastle. But as far as Chelsea concern Craig disappointment, only eleven goals in ten primarily games for them now and again, slipping at home this Wagle hearts earlier in the season with a slick passing game and Cianci's for fun even with with with the struggle in front line, but still managing to overcome as as well and truly gone Murata plate today. Because there was no Jerusha. He was he was pretty awful again. I mean, he missed a couple of ego school at one off site just for change. Because he always get himself a head of the the ball there and then integrate China foster from a header which should have been his bread and butter from around dependent sport, which wasn't a difficult to keep resolve these lying. It was a simple head to head over. You would think and he completely fluffed these lines or the big concern for Chelsea the chasing park. Ostlund? Not the side the results up and no you native ready Marino vista to get results. Chelsea's place in the Champions League. Nick season is going to come under pressure. And all this Shankar against Southampton cited mayday changes they left the taking or show you you would think or who but creditors hunting and the changes that were made. I thought they went their business. Very well, indeed, the did the basics as you would expect as you would hoop team at this level to do the cheese the challenge, and they made things difficult for Chelsea no Craig's book above Morales on the line fluff their lines yet again, it just seems as if doesn't be b this chessy team right now. Not quite sure. Who's getting the goal is for you? It wasn't Conti on the weekend. I'm not sure. How much you can rely on him? But but credits I thought they were good value for their point, Mr. Haase, and helpful to rabbit hutch pulling pulling rabbit out of the hat with that teams. Chelsea Craig how concerned would you be as Chelsea fan right now you joke about salary bowl? They have gone off the boil in terms of what clearly got guys are good coats experienced coach, but Pete will get carried away as the normal star season full three away. Sorry places. If this was something new that just come along. The problem has passed. As a mentioned Chelsea would take a year the league which have but I don't think Abramovich took in the owner to have a second year. No and the Champions League with the big boys know what they do that's transfer window. Do they go in? Let's talk Igwe in. But it it'll be pricey wages lawn fees. Your name did a panic and go for something short term or the tight to the summer. And then try and get the money. Marito salary and the Chelsea bald. They've got enough to get them through to the end of the year to stay not taught four on isn't it you almost think they can do with an attacking midfield right now. Chelsea though, making a big splash today. We'll go out to Mark to now because the transfer of Christian pulisic, the American twenty year old has been confirmed from Borussia Dortmund, Mark you've been all over this story wrote a column on ESPN FC about a deal. It's been a long time in the making right? Yeah. I mean Chelsea working for quite a while. And I think what they realize is that there's not really a market pelagic in the the premise of the moment Liverpool Wellstone we've forwards United young forwards are still the same on the same. So really didn't have any domestic rivals and the same applies in Europe PS g round Madrid look elsewhere. So Chelsea knew that they need to younger tucking forward six box and the Donut. I think idea that did need him in there. Now, the Dale worked for Darwin's keep into the summer, and then politic Megyn the summers. I think when he does arrive at the house at village way, especially the Champions League. Again, we use the prize by the the sum of money involved. We're looking at statistics. And obviously hasn't been as involved this year with the Bercy adult when I came under Lucian far, but seventy three million dollars that did that surprise you. Not really normal transfer market change to you the name our deal, which the world record one hundred nineteen ninety eight million euros changed everything when Munster to paid fifty per car Walker full about that's money for a twenty year old attack him forward is a great potential the market, these I think Chelsea paid it because they had to pay for me is that is no mid range in transfer fees. It's not it's not astronaut, Michael. Yeah. It's funny that we're talk bet seventy three million dollars. Great now being mid range. What did you make it says and chosen into freshen up in the nitty goal younger and the signings and Harvey? Okay. It's the point with us one passively. I think he's an excellent excellent player talent. But he's not it at the moment for reason. That's because Lucille five and to open the league husband are options and Brin Lawson and has opinion on Jaden Sancho husband ex and has made his England debut. But the one thing that would say, but this is you have to make the right moving hostile. What for you looking at this move to Chelsea? Great move from a big club grit club, another grit club, but comes with risk when we look at some of the players checks signed in recent years, some big names who have struggled to go in there. Mark is quite Daunton Bucky O cove in recent one, but she why for huge money drive was more experienced Zuma more Sala, and there's a twenty one year old then Shula then you've got one of the best player in the world within Kevin Debroy. And of course, Rome little Akaka who to vote and Lohan as no plying these trade at my United, but whether you blame marine your energy bills for this all these guys and Chelsea on the struggle the struggle to get game. And and you know, they had to move on somebody else to get and the point being is that what is not getting the moment is on the field. And why is time only Sade he really has to gain experience, and he's not going to get that sitting on the bench. I'm not saying it, well, but it might as two players than Christian pulisic, he's going hope for his sake that whoever's managing up football club. Really likes and he's going to get gave because it's not necessarily going to be salaries as you point. That's the other point people are saying, well, you know, Sarah, he Christian polish salary plays, thus understandable. But one of the other things we looked was the Chelsea model for their management structure is jokes stroke show and Real Madrid. Because what they do as have no success chopping change the monitor. No has been very successful for them. But that means a player when you go to your club light chokes, you don't know and twelve months eighteen months or two years who's going to be managed football club because Roman Abramovich does not see the talk for lake some clubs success. Don't win trophies at Stanford bridge. I push anything Mercer Shari would be there at least next season. So it will be. Yes. So for me, that's where his immediate future lies. I think it's good business by Chelsea Chelsea. I'm Richard dormant. I if you're Chelsea don't wanted to last summer speculation around polar sake, an arsenal and Manchester United do you wait till the summer on there. Be a bidding wall you one. If football club for Braschi Dortmund, you do wanted to these you knew that can be price up Henze brother hefty, relative high price tag in January. So that makes perfect sense and Britiah dope. Get get to keep all of the player. Now right now, I don't see police getting into this Chelsea team. But you look at the head of him villainously is old Pedris thirty one and glow county who plays a lot deeper than and put a naturally does speculation around his future. Despite signing a contract with just a few months ago. So it makes sense. And it takes a lot of boxes for Chelsea. No. If it doesn't work, it doesn't do I think because of his age you get his you get your money back. If you do invest, no, which despite the feelers they've had they've always been able to get their money back. Just just quickly. I agree. Good business for jokes. It's a lotta money on each grit business for dormant, particularly is to keep them to the end of the season will get gametime probably off the bench, but they're going for a bundle league title. So it walks around. I'm only point you know, the. Going to west London club that strives for success. The only the only deals with winning trophies whether it'd be in Europe or domestically as Haase's pitfalls, highs pitfalls, and you got to be very very careful and Christian Thames is making the right move, which he thinks is going further his career and for some players on the graphic. It was a problem for Mark is very hard not to tie this move from Josie to the future of Eden has ad is, and what does it say to you does it mean has out is gone and Publicis the potential replacement. The plan if assize the pitch, but I do think that has futures is the big question at Chelsea in. The thing is already many pretty clear that it was to play Spain. He wants to go on a league remedies dreams scenario but relevant made concert. Yes. Rail dot make any contact where does he go with twenty on Monday. So he's getting to the point in his career where he's next move is crucial move. And if we don't come call in what are the options for head and Huzzah image, stay at Chelsea. And if you stay Chelsea, then pillar sick and has out together a great combination going for it all depends on that. I think Chelsea miss out on the Champions League, which I do think they will this nothing either United Parcel, and then there's no way that Aden. House. Idle stay for another year at Chelsea in Europe league. He'll find move. But I do think that dream to remedy the one that Evans way in for it just needs rail to start making a move start talking money, but. This has been there next time at Chelsea. He does a good point if getting the Champions League that will help them ultimately Real Madrid, come alone. It's going to head the question is they have morons in the file than just at. You know, I mean, they might they might just set to some of those other players there, the MVP of those named those other that they would want the saying don't say again, if that does happen does Chelsea and he's been been very good for them. And then for him is that not only leaves one possession really for Christian polish to get into because you know, we'll wait he won't please through do next year because Chelsea will by strike. I mean hundred percent they will. This John you probably somewhere, and they will buy a frontline topnotch striker. So that means young Pilla sich that could be even more difficult than as doesn't go in Madrid. So Chelsea struggling for goals at the moment. The same certainly company said for mentioned United four wins out of four now only going to show to nil James's Park against euro boy Shanka patient in this one into wait until sixty fifth minute for the break for the Benchley playing against Newcastle. United Heuberger where you're going to have to be patient, especially any team in on top six zero refer- Benitez has gone about business. The last couple of seasons but credit credit to Manchester United. Yes, it was a tough start phone new CASA hod to Brig Dubrovka hard to get by despite Newcastle. Trying to shoot themselves in the foot on on a couple of occasions. And then in the end is a Dobrescu era that the opening goal, and you show Manchester. United look cool, calm confident. Despite the not being able to break new dome. I the head kind of remember having a of Notre three ninety six minutes, or whatever it was. I very if if I'm if I'm a Manchester United fan. I am delighted with what I've seen. Related that marine is going that was the first thing. And that was clear I'm Hoppy, a guy in that's putting us my Obock effacing upset in the show before I think also brigand might feel and then was probably the best move. They made the four games have been gray. And see the players Plymouth a smile the plan with more freedom the scoring goals. You're a guy comes off the bench and Laycock and scores with these touch straightaway is going for you. But I'm not changing my stance on this one. I'm telling you, I'm reserving judgment until the not playing the dregs of the Premier League bulma part who would on a horrendous run of results when United played them. Eight losses ten and host of injuries. And then the other teams that played have been from fifteenth place down. So I'm reserving judgment judgment on just what's happening is if you're Manchester United given what we've seen Sufa up until the arrival Sushmita taught full is a celebration on all of a sudden is within within touching distance given Chelsea's dropping. In a couple of the last three games. The fact that ask no, no just three points ahead of Manchester United. They've got Spurs to come. But after that, the next four a very winnable for Manchester United, and then all of a sudden, you know, you think in top for is a realistic judge which three or four weeks ago. You would not have thought Marquette, let's go to, you know, year round United on almost a daily basis that you must have suspected it was going to be differed dissociate, but PAT's this different. Yeah. I mean, I think the mood in the countless pre down the Breen always going to be lift. But the games like Craig says the four games of being games that you would expect to win. I mean on the marina. But generally win these games taught them ways the next league game not for me as a real test. I mean taught them when they hundred ninety eight and it was soon humbly really nothing United. It'd be careful when you go that we haven't seen social tactical Moshe Kenny CEPA teaming it to them. What can you do when they go behind when you have to change go when change formation is not to do that yet? I do think that the danger of the minute is that if social does well continues to do well that gives to the problem. They don't really want the emotion takes over. Everybody wants to get the job. And it starts my move about Matteo at Chelsea that brought a small civil face, and it might win some thimble the it'd be called headed a roof about this and the season to make Coachman is the right one to take it forward less in sick. Or Mark has been very busy for over on. ESPN NFC can re read his column not only on Christie politic. But also about the whole January transfer window. Elicit was featured in that yesterday, the players most likely to move in this transfer window. Geico presents eyewitness interviews with inanimate objects. This is Brian Bruno live on the scene of a recent windstorm here to describe the event a chest of drawers, there's a storm howling outside. So I thought I'd stay in watch Aramco five minutes into the flick, a tree branch slams through the window. Where are you hurt? Just gotta scratch on my chest. Your chest of drawers can't help you in a windstorm. But the geiko insurance agency can help you get covered for personal property damage co Geico to see how a forcible homeowners insurance can be. The big one on Thursday at the had mentioned the city, a livable seven point, separating them livable of one two more games. They've scored six few goals, but concede it off the total of mentioned city that goal difference. Plus forty staggering really after two twenty games. So why don't we have a big gain? It's an traditions combined eleven especially if you create this is all Jains combined city livable eleven you think livable on top of the maybe livable place. But it's still dominated by city plays. I believe jevon taught the mum. Yeah. Anderson. Can't get into combined Liverpool. Elam it's about half off to be to be fed to Mark gets the managerial. Interestingly. Very anti liberalism to clear. Very Addy Liverpool. No. And he made any main qualms with this selection. No. No, I know robots overstate live. Action. It's been struggling for them la- ports integrate season from dykes been arguably Europe's standing defender walkers been up and down recently still over Alexander Donald experience is very very good player. Not quite sales in recent weeks. Debroy these engine problems. He's the best midfielder in Europe for me. I think when he's saying to me highs beaten, the loss games that he was out that was a big problem for them. But he's he's no. Lesson. This game this game. I mean was to affectively they could tie level. I mean, okay. If I lead in Brandon Rogers was manager the winning with west time to go and threw away. But if it sets what ten points over seventy nine over taught them that. That's how big mountain decline for the other team pretty close to to a must win isn't it for man city? Yes, it is. Ever given the ten points. I'm Craig mention these under Brennan rajas con had Joe similarties between the two. But I just feel this team has as well. Some of this team has experienced I also feel that take heart from a very deep chimes league run where where they get into to the final. I I don't see this team during until we it comes right down to just know the ten point lead every Liverpool win, I think just cozy books Liverpool going to see this whole Bach. A lot of the things we're wondering about revolve around that that style of gain the quality of getting that we might see the it's pretty tedious nil nil draw between these two teams at Anfield daily the season presumably, we're not gonna see the same. I don't think. So I was at the game last season when Liverpool came into the Champions League qualifying one sue on these games are usually to tuck insides that know. You know, basically scattered chiller the people they want to win the game nothing that both prepared to attack. So I expect goals on on Thursday. I think I think the guys arrive if city in this really really difficult for anyone to catch Liverpool. And the reason why is that is the goals. Conceded back in two thousand fourteen the considered fifty goals on the Brenda Rogers. That's why they were in the league this time, the conceited eight and eight goes into two games, and you know, Shaq him Phyllis quite pay book. We talk with Newcastle. TV night six they're similar kind of attack in qualities as Liverpool. Cyber what let them down. There was inability to kick the ball of the just don't see liberal in that problem. They something little too strong unless rundown gets injured if he gets injured the problem feel that at all don't feel toward Mark. This thing is last year, rightly wrongly even in Champions League. I think when Liverpool KOMO pick city. They had a terrible time on food. We'll take an apart. But I can't trust them in most games whenever I was watching them out phone difficult to find the way they would lose. I've gotten feeling this moment and team. I don't think looked more fragile talked about Walker. He's just been making one or two more mistakes the left by possessions. Been an issue for the Newmar what the money is coming in prisons and chain coz, always great. It's a problem in Liverpool target area. And then obviously Liverpool's defense is no the goalkeepers been so much. So they can play this game. Any talk to Steve Nikola yesterday said they could play any way they want off on say and try and soak it for with the structure of all the press them and really try and stay for the life. Oh when the ball back and say, he's half. And he thinks Liverpool dish be interesting to see how your. In club approaches this game. Whether it's a cautious approach was really think it will be a whether it's to go for the jugular and try and Nutley stuffing of Setis title challenge. Prediction time Manca. No, you guys all love this. You mentioned that I think this game a year ago. The re the same fixture five nil man city that seems an era ago. Those isn't it whole different era? What's going to happen tomorrow? What are you thinking? I think that situation this this thing the if the broiler place fully fit with others think city have to win the game when the team has to win. This gives them an extra edge. Don't see live who committed to defending can with a nil nil. But I do think that they know that they can afford to lose sitting con people keep forgetting a good team city. Are they wanna leave by nineteen points? Let's great managing Kuadio, and they'll pulley relish, the father people always write them off already January. I think that there's a lot football to play this season said he win for Mark to concur. The great side. I think that Klopp as someday is worried about and rightly Sony is mentioned in press comedies. I'm going to set in the fans, and I'm going to say. Draw and they'll be quite happy with I think city at home get a narrow win two teams that don't necessarily do. Now a results but see a one interesting. We will see who is right on tomorrow show. We will recap all the action at the Eddie had Craig we've got pulled Marano will be for the first time in a while as well. All the league's returning from their holiday slumbers league is back tomorrow Real Madrid. Of course have came to make up from their ad ventures in the club World Cup. They will be away from home at elementary Galligan via reality we're actually third baltim- in league Madrid, of course, with plenty of ground to make up on league-leading boss, Alona, don't forget, ESPN NFC extratime all the bitch. The point making the show all your questions all of at least some of them. Every day right after the regular show. These are the papers OB waking up Thursday morning in the UK instant impact Lukaku off the bench scoring with his first hunches the United four winds continues. And the look ahead. Of course, the war of words might it's vicious. Here are the best in Europe. You're the best in the world. Wow. Of the foot and don't force. I love you the phone that is some some luck bulletin materials respect between them, but. I'm sure that my up tomorrow. Yes. Like, a teenage love affair. Tomorrow. Yes, we will see you tomorrow to talk about the loving and city against livable. What see that? Welcome into extra-time sick day, the the holy period officially done with get hold. What does that? Soak. What we want in England. He wouldn't have known the was done today. Shangen this place. Still a ghost people are still should last. Couple of days is telling people by comparison today today was entertaining. Everyone. The second in a row you said you'd run gas. Thing was really tonight regular would. No stevia new alley. Well from that. Don't forget everybody was if there's an exception to every rule Steve. The report them youthful Tucker. I've been here for the last six months nonstop holding this down. That's right. A single somebody has to show up. Go any dish ones today? Doper wants from to those. Not surprisingly, I'll give you one guess about which named dominates the first couple of questions should pulisic fans. Be worried the merger. Sorry after the game today. Mid the signing was happening until it did kinda save. Yeah. I know the player I like him. But wasn't a way we were going to sign it until tonight who get. All right. All right. So on the end of the week for he's not coming to Soma. But is it really something to worry about surprise? I didn't think shot it would go out. And I didn't think it would be. Sorry. I think some of the what I still kind of old fashioned in that the Magyars who wants and tells the chairman or director for baller, whoever it is an and they put it all together. But for the manager to be totally in the dark. Through. I do the truth as especially club, light Josie. There are so many other people involved as you said to not to not know who the player as bench of Tim posit, seventeen hundred million view when you're under pressure. He's not he's not. And we're talking about this in the show. He's not a club where second. Fourths? With acceptable seconds except right chokes. So he needs to know what was going on because it's has black save on the lane when Brown of Saxon. And he will be at this point because every month chokes ended Abramovich has commend HUD success, and then been sucked amend the line at the end of it will be he spent this amount of money on this is what you go when the very least seventy million through. He doesn't even know. She's a great young hot temper laugh laugh today at some of the some of the Americans who you just can't tell them. Got it in the head that the older reason he's not playing it is because it's getting pending transfer coming on as people I just on the stunned had met. Listen, five two options and has made in the moment. Let's not let's not. There's no disrespectful to the player. See there's a there's a thought no of those like a force in this country where young guy comes along who's very good. It's light protection as a just comes around just around this guy e can do wrong. Among meeting friends again. No. Greencard? Yeah. I mean from tries affects might be in trouble trying. There's always learning for superstar. That's why because the game is still. It's almost. And they got a superstar would help elevate. The they need that to justify a standing. But I don't agree. I don't think you need. It doesn't mean you're not to get a superstar. You're superstars Lino Massey's Christiane Renault getting you know, going you please of travel. Crop and done fantastic. Well, let's Bill. The next Massey's not pope or. Trinidad right. To that ringing endorsement from salary the nitty gritty jank who do you reckon pulisic would replace if to be in this donning eleven right now for Chelsea. Well, it's probably the player has Sade would be really. Yeah. He's not currently replacing soy will be. So wait and see particularly monitor who doesn't really wasn't when saying Jj is point that always says alum bells ringing for me you said during the show Williams will be thirty one hedgerows going to be thirty two engine. But it's sense that will be openings in tacking midfielder. I mean, he's he's ten years younger than those to show at some point. You know, the hope is the expectation is that they move on and somebody has to avoid and right now, I'm not sure that that that many is available who can if it happens sooner rather than later, but as of right, no from picking team ride. No, I still go over pulisic. But maybe that changes in two or three years and the other comes from from those seem to be something quite New Year's clone juice as that. Sorry will famous old brew. Oh, there's plenty of going to run. It seems is mentioned on this show lose it is what gonna say. Let me see. Your Sarah style football. Just go and look in modern just permanent. Untamed pre that Roman Abramovich has hired the Russian since he's since he bought the club. And then try and figure out for yourself Holo Josie, right? I have some more clone juice and come back into is Hegel. Let's move to a different attacking midfielder Cami asked us crepe believe that every sin is good amid field as debris and his attacking output is brilliant. I comparing those two. Passively would favor debris. No. However. It's no detriment to. He's a fabulous player. We're splitting hairs. Some of these real talk. Liz was splitting hairs because. A preference my personal preferences. Kevin the services mind, I'd go with Kevin to see that. See soda, debris. When he was coming up. I didn't think he'd make it to be this good this level. Even though I'm still thinking is there really physicality higher level. And he continues to amaze me as Holwell he's done every aspect of his game. Seeing debris. No over Erickson. I don't mean that any kind of disrespect or non recognition of talents because he is outstanding. Shag this next one fear. You know, you'll enjoy this, particularly did you know that Stephen Jared equalizer in the two thousand six fake final Zine. Once it left is boot if not Wayne. And is it the best goal? You can see. Really? Well, I don't know. What's conceited? I that's not for me to judge. I tried to forget them as quickly as possible to be that while I try to forget them as quickly as possible. I mean, the handed us concussion, gene. I remember remember to you pull it up on YouTube. Right. Somehow you had seen your favorite his favorite soda how famous right? How'd you see if schooling? She never seen somebody find video in zero point two three seconds. Loop up kick. It was a set-piece, and he was routed tease lane just for change and goes then Bill head. I've never seen you. Why did you the diving? On twitter. Go. Pasta. What time for Jim hidden it on me? He hid that this. Could strike a bowl house melas demon English football. That was yeah.

And if not who is my hometown your hometown has to be home. I don't have a big whom? I'm trying to be together as one point three million people dig and talk tens of thousands here. Right.

Liverpool Out of FA Cup

"Winslet sedition of ESPN SEM, Dan Thomas back from holiday. I'm around here. Thank you very much too late. When you go on a day feel like all the time. You don't give us a break here. Maltin in the stadium keep going over Christmas and new year. Oh, yes. Exactly. I was here for Christmas. Is you? Does your. I think third time for the last game against Liverpool livable building very much a week inside going into this tie at Mullah. New foreign insane Lofgren goes down Jonah who comes on his sixteen year old to replace him. Action then until the thirty seven minute, and it would be the host who would take the lead. Catch live on the break row him then as making it one now initially stage Miller loses the boy, it's also James Miller who is able to come across now, the tech employer forces Miller inside, but Danes you have to find a way to get the role he meant as he bills come across on time. And then is just a free Rover. Only Menzies, you know, what I'm going to keep going, and I'm going to go ahead and finish my chance. Six minutes second-half, though, livable the equalizer in some style. He does obviously scored that goal in the. With the nationally those oh here because he could no whatsoever. Four minutes lights that I was retained the lead Rimet Nanas. Is giving time space in eighteen yard buck. Nobody gets out to him. It's a great strike gets around the defendant by the time goalkeeper seasons. Too late. It's passed them. Nice goal. Twenty minutes ago should carry we livable's sharks. And so make it to deny though by the post, you know, what? Fingertip on saving nip. So what was true to the fourth-round that liver for our two of the FA Cup? Here can be losing too much sleep over. I know that makes me laugh because I didn't know anybody is making a run into the ball before the boats, led the grows and then he realized that I'm just a guy a notch with these debates. Somebody said and Komen go blow go blow because he run away year from the goal scorer say run away. But as you say. I think some size we can be critical of this weekend for for plan under-strength teams, but not a team who in the junk. Okay. And fighting a question you're gonna ask that I didn't really ask a question us things. I don't think. Liverpool be overly bothered the possession. Okay. Well, let's be that's move on. And talk about those teams that we can be critical. You'll tweet about Lester, Jerry Leger, can maybe all those adult, but less absolutely won't me out. Because here's a guy caught Poile. The I don't know if it's a fifty fifty split in the list of funds, it may even more than that, don't like style and want them out. And he always seems to be a game to your way from the Hutton. And then he goes on a run where he sits ABC jokes Lucy's, Takada phobia, which is a disaster several. So he's kinda back in the good books. Above mid-table, the probably going to finish table at washed, a never gonna be relegated. And he plays a weakened team and the FA call. I mean, I'm sorry one way back on side of supporters as run together. Now, if you're telling me that all they want to finish possession to for the Premier League. Obey extra cash pocket, then it's a disgrace. And quite frankly, the last of funds calling for his head and there've been a few today. I'm not surprised not surprised. Groper on his own as we've seen over the game's manages do this boggles the mind safe. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. For some reason, you're rotating your team. I mean, there's certain sees less abbots offered. I think the not gonna go down. They're not going to finish the European places that they have to folks in the FA Cup and the League Cup. Now think maybe two years you're West Brom in the position they were the well-saved top seven eight they lost in the third round the rest players and their season ended in January from that point on the Malays sets in and told misled appeals because he couldn't get it back. I think when you switch off and you have nothing to play for the funster funds for the football. And that's going to happen spoiler. Isn't it the funds what you're gonna give look football? You give them this not really great to watch you give us any trophies. And that's where he's lows oppression yourself by not taking this seriously. Because if you there you insulate yourself from the funds being unhappy because you've got potential winning Simpson. What now maybe you don't believe maybe probably not nothing one of the grade privileges that we have in working with guys like Craig and Stevie and shag and Paul mariner is there. Stories of if a Cup competition, and the magical the ethic open Stevie will tell stories and this fantastic. Great to be that time to be in that moment. Because now run outside are looking in know, somebody who did not blame this competition who has no ties to this competition. It's impossible to take it seriously. If teams like LeicesteR Everton like what for that have nothing to lose. Don't take the competition to a point where it's significant if this not significant to then how is it going to be significant to somebody who has no ties to the truth of the matter is that magical, the FA go that I can relate when this guy is telling stories, and I can I can appreciate those stories are coming to an end with a simple because on less their teams that are willing to take the competition. Seriously. Then in the end, I don't know how significant the competition is used to be would blame for Ramana just but the British guys. It's just not the foreign guys. No, I had I had the west hop in the car new on UK radio. I thought my my right. He said, I'm a West Ham fawn all the time in recent years where West Ham that have been done the banal down from from from the Premier League to the championship. And they said my biggest disappointment is not the relegations as tight when shot was playing a new lost in the final. We say that was the most gutting day of ever had a note have midtable mediocrity. No, even a strong team against Newport county. It's a scandal. Let's take a look at the full round droids one. Very interesting tie at the top, yo page will be awesome against Manchester United elsewhere, nothing else jumps out at you. But obviously not Barnard against Brentford. Your new poll supposed to all league saw it will be new pool against middle's breath for also against United States. Obviously again, they both have to take. Seriously. Yeah. Say really the big one is an either to that might sneaky for they might not record. When asked those twelve so these two clubs always taking it seriously about when you pulled out into. But the clubs in terms of the history and both manages would take its Roe v. It's a massive. And I think that run of games as not the most appealing forth without really sons out. It was a game certainly does and say he's hot and cold bulbs again. And they kick the boys too big boys together. Now, there's not enough of them. Not the most glamorous of of draws next is on the positive also United. Well, that would be the TV game. Always on anyway. But Niamh rate and potentially for scouters could be for the Niamh Ray. Taught fall is going to be difficult. Awesome for the good period in the Cup. Couple keeps rightly or wrongly kept awesome Venga bubbling over for a few more years because it could say what what in the FA Cup. So I I think he will play both will police teams going to the United in a moment. Just reminded though, if you miss a show, you can download on podcast, which is available on the website. So it's five wins out of five for social as coach of mine just see nights aid, it snowboarding Craig this campaign that may be if it works out company to get social as the coach thank season of the five games. Would it be Biden's idea the moment? Yes. But what if it works out say they go onto win? The NFL Cup say they finished fool. I'm sorry. But I just took a job in too big rebuil- with with against clubs her way ahead in terms of the scored to get carried away with emotions and. Less than to pull it on strings about how it was created seven to the club. And he's commanding these things done. Well, it's going to take a lot more not to pick mindset, you live appro bustle on a Real Madrid Munich event is all these other teams too big is that an argument to say they've tried to big coach they try van Gaal tried marina. They tried Moi's. It didn't work. So why not go down this route? Because people. Tackling south by about two hundred mile talking about what you are in a minute because he said some interesting things today regarding spas and his future. But there is a feeling isn't there among some United fans that this could work out social maybe could be the solution. If Oviously they continue this Finestone, I think of the romance encourage what you have to be hard headed about this and realize that if you made the appointment this time the two years down the line that you've messed up. So it's a good start sell the ships make people happy again still the reality is, you know, to need a world class coach she can take them onto the next level to close the gap on Liverpool. So let me get this straight. If your majesty United fan, you rooting for Seoul skyer by not so much that he makes such a run that it makes him impossible to get rid of them at the end of the season. I mean at some point you got to look at what he has done. And I know that haven't played anybody. But let's not lose sight of the fact that even. Not playing against anybody. They were struggling just emoting you. So I think the team has taken a step forward. And to that point. I would say all right. Yeah. Give them till the end of the season. But he seems backwards to thing that you're better off rooting against your team because you're looking at the big picture. We don't know that the whoever the new manager would be that. He's actually going to do the job that is required for my to say ninety. But we do know that from what we have seen so far and mine, you it is a small very small sample. It's been good for my to say that it and the best players are playing their best that hadn't happened in a while there might to see it doesn't have to be one or the other. United can have. Great run. Right. Still replace I'm as the monitor. A formidable argument is why doing it is because it's such a big rebuild. So you can still have mine. United going on this fun tacit run in maybe four, and I don't think they'll be PS g. Many smiles on the faces, but you can still then as long as what goes out and makes the right appointment. Then he can say to the fines. No. This was great. There's a bigger picture here becomes difficult to do. It becomes more difficult to do if the team does all the things that you just talked about. And then all of a sudden you have a group that was nowhere near this. Good performing at that level becomes a whole lot more difficult to sell the rim. It was for Hickman steady the ship. Get results on get the place how begin and he's doing that. So that was the remain until the end of the season to make a better job for whoever comes in. I just think it'd be a mistake. On by the wrong reasons to give them the full-time basis. I mean, he might be money is down the guy that's perfect for the club. But it could be reversal Timoteo guy that does a short fiction long-term isn't the guy to take you. Our opinions, of course, has always relevant down to would could be ten. Do you think he might crazy gonna go with his heart, and they'll been absolutely and is a word for that happens. Because advocates is a genuine guys is that likes to be lights. And if he thinks all the Monday night frontal, suddenly like him if they gave the funds favorite then. Let's get to could be spending a player, you know, the suggest as you could before two million pounds, which is a big chunk. So if he can get the popularity of the supposes by giving the job to social and keeping mic feeling in these realms. Well, make it's almost like home for Blunkett Monday night, socia- Phillies days, again, the has gone, and they go to get away from the danger phones little fell into all those years ago by constantly go boot room, and Roy Evans and soon us in this. They go to make a clean break medically, obviously with Moi's on helm renewable clean bright in the focus and pasta in a sense. And look for the wrong appointments lost three times going to the appointment. Not for me. Put to seeing somebody else got to get away from this holiday played in the moment. I mean, don't get me wrong. There's no the the porch Tino away recount, get X Y. That's the problem is. Right. Say X wines. There is a really a lot of coaches around the come in. So why not stick with social? He's being success might be something to look done the late and the death of really good women. Some good ones they might see the club lake and in twenty Cohen tear Diego semi owning whose real people. The antics the other side of the coin as a never we should relate. What's mine United to that Real Madrid on those done because I think there's a million miles apart Benitez a? Who's a very good manager the way of doing things on the players that like, but it was a heck of a squad plans. Right. A heck of comparing those two we might United joking. Geez. World Champions League windows and an also some of the best players in Europe who were underperforming. What you've got here is some very good players. And someone's that let's be honest. United finds thank probably ship the club. They've been on the performance and soak soaks more of but contrast and compare and contrast them around with dread is apples and oranges because that was a world class on the performance. And then the best of them. Now put your seeing I was played it pretty well as an ISA Foll since he's Maryknoll left. I and they don't clips today we sold from him. Maybe frustrations behind the scenes I saw the other day about how teams spending money in the last ten years, and we were on the Baltimore in England and Europe, we're doing fantastic job. If we want to be real attendance. We need to operate in a different way in the future. The me. I clues. Isn't it something from punchy seen especially challenging you leave it to give them some money to spend probably knows the answer to that is going to be no not because Levy does give you just scribble because he count because the new stadium even suit the cost of of just spiraled controlled it's way more expensive. So can they afford to go out and spend two million plays? No because they have defined finals the stadium. If they don't sign plays for them to sell place assigned place at the the the best players supported seeing those that Sposato problem because a group of plays that wants a win things how Cain daily Christine Christine. Sunday's tonight Simmons. He's waiting full clarification. So what's going to happen? Because if one play goes than the rest of enough input CENA's, though, say Weiss on these best plays some point supposed to find a way to say in pay keep the place, Hoppy and to the squad. And I don't know how Old Trafford in posted say, no, yeah. I'll be surprised if you didn't. Remember when we're having this discussion to to go when he was on the said, there's one guy you can put an end to this. And it's and it's portu- Tino. He could make a statement. But no interest in mind unite the Joe, blah, blah, blah and gob said, well, he's not going to do because he wants to keep his Han strong. Daniel Levy, and I said, well, there's another way you can Frizette differently. You can freeze it by saying get new interesting job as long as we get the funds here too. Go with the best effectively. That's no what you say. Which I think is the foster and he's beginning to build that bridge. That's exactly what's happening. This is the first piece of things that are to come. And then eventually the money's not gonna come for Tina, the players are not going to say, well, I did what I could. Now, it's time to go. Do you know what? Quick because there's a Real Madrid. He's struggling the moment. Loria ram just about job Chilean, any extra time always feel questions. People are being anti sped. As I mentioned often. I wouldn't say you can always sending you. It's ESPN f c. It's not happy rating for signs ISA, Laura. Look on the front pages of the Madrid sports newspapers today, the burn about empties the reason Venetia stereo Madrid needle Beverly meal, depress depressing. And watching what happened in the about losing to against rails. So should not leave some ten points. The top of the table. This is against him. Yes. It was and it's on the back end of having Taibbi too. And so then he just kind of gives you an idea that this whole honeymoon was what was a club World Cup that it was supposed to resolve everything not and Gareth bale, the wool how good club World Cup that he was supposed to resolve everything not so much. I think it is time to move away from the Gareth bale being the solution to Real Madrid. But the the struggles around go beyond that, and it's clear to see if you took their shirts off you put any other uniform on and any other stadium. This team would not be any better than any midtable team in any league across Europe. That's the way they're playing. Yeah. Don't look at the names. The looking don't look at the status lung. They'll look at the history look at the performances mistakes they make and defensively. They're lower the place. I'm going to say whatever he wants on the left hand side except defending he doesn't he's not producing them. They're talking half either been semis. No scoring. Goals. You don't have control out of the midfield is a team that gets stretch everywhere. You look this team this disorganized. And I don't see where the work of both the body and individually of the players on the field actually give you any sort of hope going into the future. We'll after the way you've described no one got Bill lifting this story. How the character left the stadium in the seventy minutes miss? They ended I don't know daring himself pre plod. Pre. Plus, he's just helping themselves about funding Bill late. Really blame somebody for injuries. You know, when the depression that getting a hold of not helping sales. So then you look as Vasquez offer. Sick and yell. That was distributed Chris moderate show this control in the midfield. The where whether it's the perfect for mortgage from the world companies tired, but the whole, and that's the club borough just tells you what pilot. Well, champions gate jumpings, my bucks, honestly. But staying at home and rest as they see how this is going to resolve itself until you have a big transition period in the summer and transition period that was there for you to be at least stepped into that transition this past summer goes. Okay. Renaldo went onto renters do something. But you haven't Tong. Okay. That's all. By the way, it's over now. Or the same amount of goals. And so they address it. And so now you're behind the curve. Now, you're playing catch up with a team that is getting older and the team that frankly, it's not playing well individually group, they're not really answering reacting to Santiago Larry there weren't reacting or answering to locate the at some point you got to start looking at the players, and you have to say, wait a minute. Where is the leadership almost where is the leadership? Well, some of the best players in the world because we're mush was excellent in the World Cup. Okay. Where is he you have this huge Renaldo size? Hold that. You have in address and everything else. Just haven't been able to pool pooled their side of what they needed to do in the field brain Diaz was confirmed. Louis I thought the clients fails that Renaldo how this young from mansions to city. What do we know of will impact you can make a play the city had high hopes for the funds were put in the hopes and being a kid? This was nothing to the academy descended from Spain. But young kid that could make him up leading sunshine to get football. Now, I don't think you play much more Albany played a city is a play this go of it pays you can finish. Ali. He's not going to be the answer to house. All these most solemn kid play two or three games. Inspiring segment that infrared. ESPN right same. He'll screens tomorrow. Saving will be from Hanes today stories below. Uh-huh. It was made official tonight. Monte no, the new coach of the mixed national team only. How's it going to get? Well, first of all figuring and Mexican football history. This was well known longtime ago. The only question that I have about that the guy that has been on their pressure before has coach many different places. One of the first questions. He was today's is the biggest challenge in your career because that is somehow standard Mexico has said for themselves. It's unrealistic. But that's the way they budget with that we should be at TV great things, and we're not gonna take us to this place. Now, if you're asking that question because either you're unaware or you simply don't care about the fact that the coach Argentina coach Missy coach Barcelona has been in pressure situations that will be just fine the expectations of the Mexican national team. They have to be realistic. That's a problem that I don't think he's going to be able to resolve meanwhile across the Atlantic in year Vic story today. Regarded in the US Timothy win making that move from PS. She to Celtic is this makes sense euchre. Absolutely. It makes sense for both because Celtic needs something after you know, it's gonna be a title challenge this year with rages. It looks like they need some fresh science. He needs gametime. Thank you will get Celtic. He will enjoy playing Celtics. They will dominate most of the games on should a good chance to showcase has Skelton. We know he's a good talent so often let's obsolete sense for open enough to they had to make a move the fullest goals. The council about that alone. Move by the way in Europe. Zain's Kandla ports is IVA. Columbus Crew and probably most famous for the handshake running out of in client happen. Of course, he's carrying. Pips? Still still rig. It was his story over. Yeah. He's still he's still chasing the handshake. They didn't quite happen. Kayla porter. How it's success in Major League Soccer with the with the Portland timbers. In fact, winning Emma. Let's ankle was against Columbus Crew. He's familiar with the state of Ohio coach with Akron Simpson. College familiar with the area is a name that people think very highly of the only thing that I would question is that he didn't exactly leave Portland timbers in the best sort of way. And so what happened there we we do not know? But there's no question that he has had success in this league. And I think this is part of the new wave of the Columbus Crew were moving new direction. He's part of it new general manager with teammates chanko. It's all steps for the Columbus Crew schedule announced today, you can take a look about over on the website. Meanwhile, it's our life full you on ESPN, plus as take on Chelsea that's the first leg of the care about Cup semi final. You take a look at the ready close between the two Chelsea slight favorites to make it to the. Final. It just comes down to Tim selection. Yeah. This is the thing. It's gonna power strong United. We can isn't it? Yeah. Which would tell you that he's going. Well, let's be honest all the talk of the bike score. They got a decent score. It can shuffle. He's sorry. I would imagine he will show who we saw Callum Hudson. Doi get some game we can make lanes of potentially going by Munich. He's Lucan for more time on the field. Loftus cheek engine. We can't. So he's not want to be involved. Expecting both too strong teams. Just not the foster Levens thing. Not lopping. Your needs is more loonies Tottenham every everywhere. I mean, push it to you know, he's players people hurricane deli. But what made you on this? So they need to winning things to kind of live up to this. This hype. This count as a major. Yeah. I mean, it's it comes every contest. So it's a major. It's definitely in the pecking order for the big clubs will if you wanna show for quite a long time haven't finished once. They haven't won anything else between is because it's been not fake and it's real fluids. Salutes alley gone records. And you never put faith in Spurs. Does it change the karaoke? No. No. But I do think that this means or shoot me a whole lot more to Spurs than it should to Chelsea. I do think that they needed more. And because they needed more as they have many other times, they'll come up short reminded the other semifinal match against both. Now, that's that's on Wednesday bay show to join us tomorrow. Then we'll be looking back at that game between spasm. Chelsea. Steve nNcholas back today. Oh, we find out. Thank you very much. Thanks. Into extra time long said phrasing. Knowing your outside of ground freezing co on scarf on. On the next to him. But they shouldn't you writer as you who. Who is in the writing your guy? Because we keep waiting McCoy rightly so for me to say is it really? How? Is you here? Your heart was on once got. Pulling a face. Music was it past for Liverpool to loses today in order to focus on the primarily and the champions leak. No because they lost again. And even though is the second-string most the second-string they lost against this week on those. People can't overestimate is is win. This one throw for this was that those the club win things. So the FA the lead coops, so it's the Champions League the league and. Tempe unless you the top of the league that pressure elites away chipping away. The need to Winston. So really I.

That'd be above move. Thoughts Mark on Manolas transfer? Very miss United big differences between the quality between him and Kula Bali. We'll kill the body for majors. I think he's the best defender that can be signed at the moment. Law firm on they call, you know, you're not to hold on. I think Q the Bali was actually not game had what it was a half St. when solid was. He was not in the thing. I think he's the one that they want compensation in man. Why does he never smiles because? Somebody else's. Normally get. Is it because he's normally starting in front of the of traffic reporting issues because one of months yesterday people in for months to quiet, you know? Yeah.

Solskjaer Looks for Excuses

"Woke means, SEDATION ESPN AFC on down Thomas later on the show Gammon jobs will be to discuss Luis Suarez as mood Mexico Madrid album murata returning to your vents us. We start though in the care about cutting on just united where they three nil victory over Luton town Craig Steve and mark with us. I'm laughing Craig, what do you WanNa talk about this game? He said the final final whistle. Anything. Any takeaways? We don't have to talk about this and we don't want to. Take it was well, are you going to social changes and he was moaning today about not having of fitness in his players they were ready to start the season the basically the rest of them all. So the affections to play players and getting fit for the week again against brightly pasta. What the game while I think it just proved what we already know that Gallo isn't good enough for minorities should have replaced in this summer. A lot a lack of depth at the scored Eric by maybes about option and Victor Lindelof. Have Henderson looks okay with one seven book. Really gave you tell us most beyond the fact that what we already know that when united only plays out need in a puff on the bank. Let's discuss those comments social made ahead of this game mark alluded to. Came out and he said we need four or five games to get up to the standard. We know what capable of we haven't had an opportunity to get those games in and we have to make sure in these Games we get minutes and make the players ready to start competing in the League again Craig what struck me from this is that schone everyone is in the same boat the moment why is social trying to make out as if Manchester? United a hard done by. Stevie earlier he's he's one four or five. Games set eleven pillow. points. Often, run up point are you would imagine So let listen has dropped to get up and running not been an ideal scenario for everybody. Everybody. And so. An extra we call in terms of the season started phlegm slightly. So that's a little bit rest and recuperation or fitness training at. Had A bunch of preseason friendlies at Chroma Mabilu is one or two for some, but you know just just don't be making and August said if. Is Not much further than then give them whenever and a game against Luton tone. Here's the deal that would help for your much shop. I suppose from the game on one thing would be by some gametime because. Lindelof. Per Game, we can't was involved in all the goals that they lost, and that's the problem that's another problem area for Manchester United they need to solve. Stevie four or five games to get up to speed. Well, it smacks of a little bit of these take the pressure off and. Make an excuse. But then to say what it does after about about using the Kandebow Cop. To. Get. Up to speed, and then he will only please one player from the stopped it in the weekend just makes them look stupid And then my opinion, it was ship and move to listen you plan your plan a team in. A league below year, they made four to five changes as well to their normal star light sole. It wouldn't have been not taxing settling tax and fee of black five. You got him on the field and got some time together unfitness, and then you six six more the played and you can take three off. It makes no sense. The first part of the get, he's trying to make an excuse. But to Tony say what it did, and then no toner just makes them look a little bit finish. Here's the deal. Steve who say, Oh, you know player even after Phil preseason. And probably six seven marches or whatever as you play preseason. No player come the FOS premier. League much. Or League much of any domestic season across the globe as ready. I had Jim Beg on the commentary yesterday on the road game talking about he used to think it took a month before the would opt to fill up a month could be you know five, six, seven games before you really fill your fill within yourself. Every team in the League is facing the same bottle, the quicker you get your players and gametime competitive much time. Then the quicker you please get up to fill fitness. No big resented the first premier league game of any season and the not sure breathing heavy because the paint's of. Proper Games compared to pre season as a night and day in. Lesson. You'll have to look at Liverpool against at least united. The traps. Flying all over the parish could a lost the game because it's taken the it's aims. So everybody's in the same boat I thought was interesting the narrative after the defeat against Crystal Palace Mark was the fact that this is why would would need the finger out and bring in new players as opposed analyzing the players that are actually on the pitch and over on the stand of Manchester United team is so much higher than crystal. Palace yet he seemed to get a pass for some reason we can quite get. Because Monday night always make big promises during the early part of the window, and then when it comes to the end of it, they haven't delivered on those promises in the funds for straighten and you look at the team thinking that we could be so much better. So. I think the manager will always get a pass when Edward was in charge at would now will. Ever be it. Because it's the same story every summer the under deliver the over promising on deliver, and we've seen him ten days to go through the window shorts and shine one play in the big target Sancho. COMING ALONG Haven't. With the look they're left book. Talks why the funds turn on the board because they feel they let the manager down. But it's not. Right here is my point. How many of those Crystal Palace starting eleven we'll get into the mansion's nine team that starts at Old Trafford, the weekend maybe one or two. So surely, this isn't just about personnel. This is about coaching and getting the best out of these plants which only clearly and I know it's only one game, but we have seen it quite a bit over last season as well. That doesn't seem to be a tactical plan in place to get the best out of these managed united players. He's Kennedy jumped on off the roller coaster. You know it comes under horrible and all of a sudden, the fun tastic and they pick up and everything's great. We all the. History repeat itself going to incredible Ron as well after the after the stop. Unnoticed after this season. Absolutely. Horrible. So I think this is more mortar poke. And we keep talking about only because we're not really talking about the players. It's always is only good in his only not good enough. It's only going to how come only keeps getting a pot well. He's Self mine united and the right time where the people upstairs are not quite sure what to do and so he's getting up past one of those little bump in the road as well. So he's over before and he keeps getting. Plus the United on paper. Exactly on paper should be in the top four and they well. I'll tell you what as far as putting performance he's together. You just. Again we're back in the rooms. We're not sure what we're going to get, but the get away with. And then you can understand why Marino resources straighted. Love of aluminum marmite character great cv but he could see it and you know let let's be frank. So guys just happy to be there right is won the lottery been manager reminds us united coming from where he was and what he achieved as a manager, right? So he was planted. As an appeasement of the fines initially by the ownership in. Edward would and. short-term but but quite frankly you know is he going to be buying fest on on on the door on the desk about were demanding the finances are spreading around on top quality players going to the media and complaining about the Club Because Not Buckingham? No, he's not Ferguson set back and take. No would clock would while the all over the top coach? No, they would not. But he's sitting there as taking that on the Chen. Grow known again but of a soft soap but then. He just hoppy. It'd be a nutjob. But as I said all along I, don't think he's going to be a Nutjob long-term and he certainly not been helped by Edward but. At the moment is just running this place. So shortly from a federal perspective. Scary there miles behind set in Liverpool usov mindset in the first half yesterday it was incredible. Okay. Second half was about more techy follow you gotta expect up but they were incredible and they had six or seven players angeled and we know that Liverpool can do as for united while we're going to be silenced on Showbiz saying player. Not. No absolutely deadly squawked apart from Donovan. Big For Manchester. United's not good enough am Oh, just a few weeks ago you broke the story Manchester United were interested in Meccano who looks like a perfect fit for their side that needs some quality at the back. And get him. Because you're not a reputation I feel since before they take forever to get a deal done prevaricate they tried to knock people down every clue tries to haggle bought. United Look. To the degree in is so slow they just talk deals DOT COM account had an escape clause that which would have made him available for less than fifty million pounds last month than the chance then. So you know day begin in charges as chief executive for ten years between two, thousand, three, hundred, thirteen. At what is now approaching eight years in the job and we still get an story every year that. Turn the ship around is going to take time. Processing Place. DNA The united way wherever eight years is almost been there as long as David guilt and they're still talking about trout find a way to do things properly does not football. It's been two years since I was floated. No technical. In. Actually, it's really really hard to find can move forward. I don't see any any real plan other than the the key talk about younger players and finding the right fit for club. If you'RE GONNA get one every window is tech forever until. Going to pull further further away and the guys who are GonNa Salsa. Nice Guy Club. When that's always pretty much interview tonight. It felt like user money reserve team it doesn't elect. To the players will able to sign for be able to play on US I. Still don't see what is. White plays. Wave planes you look at Klopp Gaudio you know what they bring to the. Throw some big monitors that go clear leg reporter Tino and listening is so grown. To puzzle deputy while. Majesty. United through to the next round of the Caravelle Action continues over Wednesday Thursday certainly to gain stands out on Wednesday also take unless the city meanwhile Thursday Manchester City, play host to former. Hey it's your homie. Sorry it's your home. I know you don't like it when I call myself your own. So I have some favors to ask you could you get rid of a few chairs in the living room? Floor boards are tired and other easy thing which save money. If you bundle your home and car insurance with Geico one more thing, I know you love lavender scented candles but could try to vanilla. I think it would fit my five better go for bundling made easy. Go to GEICO DOT. com today. The latest edition of the Gavin just podcasts as always available to download over on the website we joined by the two stars now Jewison. Gaba with us. Gabon WanNa talk to you about Luis Suarez who's going to outlets Madrid that is done. But of course this week we thought maybe he was going to advantage in preparation for that he went and took his Italian citizenship test. Why is this relevant atoll? Well, it turns out he's cheated on this test that was phone typing and all this kind of Netflix's excitement around its and what's GonNa Happen Now. Well So I. If you're wondering why he needs to determine citizenship test, it's because in Spain to be counted in you player, you just need to have a spouse who's who's in EU citizen, which which wires has a residential you have to be a most of your you have to use it isn't It's not like he was taking test just. So you could go to vendors. He would say he was doing it to keep his options open to go to any club but. He has a need to take the test. Now, the absurdity miss is he decided to take the test at University I. Fiddle. which will goes in and test people on behalf of the of the Italian. Government and the problem is this place had been under investigation. Since February because they were accused of basically how can I put this basically like arranging vision having very easy tests of short where you know you talk to the Guy Informally Beforehand he tells you everything you need to know, and then he gives you a high grade. So. All these guys have been wiretapped fiddle. John. The wiretaps reveal that they're discussing Juarez and one guy's going Joe George did speak a lick lick of Italian. But of course, we're going to help him pass and stuff like that. So he's not officially under investigation yet. These people rings exam are under investigation. Yeah. It's not a good look for him at all. I mean football is it doesn't matter because he's taking in Spain but not a good look on. You've meant this by the way adamant that they had nothing to do is to test. You know they had lost interest in in in Suarez as long as a week ago. So Suarez going Athletico Madrid the deal they cut was they will pay Barcelona two million year is for every time they make it to the quarter-finals of the Champions League Joe's, and it's funny because you think about cars you think washed up thing is a it rubbish. We've Creko lack of pace on the show things like that but his numbers are still pretty good twenty one goals last season he's something to offer as name. I'm also sure that yeah of course twenty one last season we may see in your team news twenty one goes probably in season even you even you could go so other. No. And we? Different from US I think I think Messi with the women more than men but I think he has a fitness. Wise. He hasn't been fit for a wide you could see. Yes. Sometimes used games and technically. Gifted player just he run as much as you used to economic runs, it doesn't have this movement. You could clearly tell and I think he would give you some games some good games now, and again, I, just don't think for season you can rely on him and that's why I'm a bit surprised out clubs actually ventures and even not to Madrid, really have been looking for them benign for more than eight months now since since January last year within some Kalani and and for them to just good to throw is now thirty three just finding a bit disappointing. So Suarez going. Let's see which means that our murata is way and he's heading to event scab. This seems a bit strange considering how poor as being. On a few years now, Sean, I just don't have to live by the fact that I just heard Juliet. Moines. Say that world champion World Cup winner Frenchman on Greece Man. Is Not as good as Dan Thomas well. Anyway. Classify. It's not super strange when you when you consider the event is are on a very, very tight budget again, they announced huge losses last year they had to basically right off the last year of Plasma tweedy and and England's wings contracts. So, they're limited in what they can do now remember they were going for and Jekyll that was their top target given the transfer fee in the wages with GIECO versus Murata, it works out roughly the same in terms of terms of outlay they like more because a Moronta loves being Middle East and his wife is a and whatnot. He did have a really good spell when he was at this before he works really hard and they feel that he's versatile in that you can ask him to fry. You've been asking them to play as a second striker. You'll basically do what he's asked and they think that which Christiano Murata diva include Cesky. You know they've got four good strikers with different skill sets and they can use different combinations chose objective gieco rats or any day. I mean I think for Murata, people have been too obsessed with these numbers and how many goes through Tennessee that you could make can bring you something very different to just go and I think that's important the way. We want to play. This team will be built focus channels so you need to strike A. China was more goals than himself and I think. Jacob. Would have done that. Do. That could that could work really well, I think unlike another. Another more sensitive striker if you want who would have who'd been there to scoot when you're twenty five season, I think Roger can easily fifteen but would have given fifteen to Christian as well in the same season and that's why I think. He makes sense. He's a very intelligent player who moves where of course. Of course, sometimes he's I. thought she was really bad and yeah, he's he's not clinical enough compared to other strikers back as I can see doing media well. Of. Pillow inventive style of team just going back to Barcelona we knew when you've told us as many times as they go get rid of players free up funds to bring plays in. So we've got Suarez out rocketed out via Dow authors gone as well tomato to wolves they're suggestions that they've already found a replacement for some eight oh in. Desk Gills we thought he was going to go to by Munich. We now be having to Catalonia. Yes. That's right down which is surprising in the sense that usually when. These transfer negotiation and they get the planet they won't really needed to write back and I think they've identified this long longtime ago on the guy who could come in and do. That however clearly. are found the world to convince him to choose them head of by Munich they also need to right by because as we said, Semedo has been bad for years and not finally good for them is is leaving says you Roberto? He's really a midfielder right back. So the Sydney did someone coming in? Place Nothing. So she knew this with all the potential Ya that we all know is a really good signing for Bossa potentials the word here though Gavin as far from established. Yeah. You're talking about a guy who really only add a half season. I ex wasn't starting earlier this year because he was unsettled by being listed likes of firemen. In Barcelona. I still wonder about this we are getting conflicting reports about whether the deal is done because certainly Byron seem so far at a wonder if it's one of those situations where you club deal with the other club as a deal with the selling club, should it could be more to come on. Certainly. I think with regards to the content on media and then Barcelona Fans I. Don't think. So Gino Loan. Is GonNa, keep the masses. Happy. Not Manley's to the question who could keep them. Happy. We've mentioned memphis the pie before what's happening etchells. He's waiting for the court. He's waiting for us to and make an offer to your own today. Again, young were saying that we have nothing memphis is on the market they hoppy to sell him. He has just one year left on his contract and Franz he's not going to renew so. They they've come to terms. Leave the summit, but there's no offer you can leave. So they waiting for Boston now he's waiting for boss or not he's he's going to agreement with declared. There's no problem about the he wants to go with Kumon as well. So went together for the national team but right now, Boston are moving in terms of making offer from face and I think Memphis and these people, and certainly a lot of people in France and not others submitted has gone through the money's coming in from Boston they can spend up all memphis face but spending the. New Desk, but then should be. So I'm not sure what's next for men face he sternly waiting for the court, but at the moment accord is now coming, is it the pile faster Vassar gap? It may well be if this were Kuban wants I don't think it's why it's what it should be I think what you're seeing is. A lot of clubs are in the same boat. A lot of clubs have high priced veteran players that. They would like to to to move on if possible whether on loan or or whether on the low Fi I wouldn't be surprised if as we get closer to October fifth is Barcelona can't get Memphis on their turn on their terms. Maybe you know maybe they look to somebody else maybe look for another striker. WHO's out there on the market we'd actual genuine. Striker and because I think that is something that's missing from Barcelona right now maybe not somebody to play every single game but it's something really Barcelona other than Suarez really haven't had in a very, very time turn it is to to bring in off the bench and certain games meanwhile on, Wednesday? Gills. We could have some sort of resolution regarding the punishment to be handed off what we saw occur in classic. Thus, ride the discipline committee of the League will will meet again. And this time, the main headline is. Mario Spit towards Varo in game against between. PSG. In Marseilles Squawk News if you look at the game again and the footers the definitely spots on automobile viral and I think for that unhealthy Maya who will appear in front of the committee via zoom or video conferences something but could could be banned quite heavily which would be a huge loss for PSG and then obviously the race all the racial abuse from. A volatile Neymar. Now, also from Neymar to he rookie Sakai the Japanese ride bike in Marseilles I think we could. We could maybe have the outcome of that tomorrow on Wednesday nights or however it looks more likely that they will last for more time to continue the investigations to look again more footage maybe to some point, ask questions to name our to our to. Sakai's where we she's not planned for tomorrow night. So, we might not see the outcome of the older racial abuse incidents that we've seen during the game, but certainly for the demise. Should be tomorrow. And we'll be discussing on the next edition of the show. Thanks very much poice. You're wrong will be returning then to go all the latest findings from that meeting.

Skip the murder parts because I get scared. GEICO DOT com today. You may have seen it already on plus where you might not have yet be sure to check out within the NFC group the new Siri show racism, the red card shocker talking to a number of different people including director of Football Qpr Les Ferdinand let's bird now the only black director of football innings. Do you feel you're carrying the weed the responsibility. Hopes every young lack for a? Black, coach of hoops to become a director football one day and the reason I asked that alleged because i. so the comments recently made by Ian Wright's seeing that you had to be a success for the next black man to be considered director of football you needed. To Be Successful, I want to probe further because. What one do you feel that way? Why do you feel that way? Why is it? You have to be successful another black person. To get an opportunity when the door always seems to be open as you rightly point out for so many Ex. White football. I mean to me. Check see. Directors. A football guy from one club to another for one club turnabout. What feld women have not quite done what I needed to do at one glove again, Opportunity and number club, and I think the reason why am was signing she only thing complete gold is the fact that if not successful would get an opportunity elsewhere that can only be the the the point that he joins Mike I understand to agree raise gummer wrong because you can't kill when you. Haven't been in the industry naughty industry. And see how it works you. You have to be successful to be given another opportunity somewhere else if I decided to leave Rangers I have not Kohl's I have in a week. Where we have young agents actually wants to do this I young black men who are in university Kumi. Once speak to me about how do they get in? How do they get across the fresh odor front to be able to get any of you decide this devolved I wanNA do. And I think Jordan's doing something. On two. Weeks ago he said Look Les Ferdinand wasn't given the third the the job kick you out because he was the best director of football around Eve's given up the chimney and he's Always given an opportunity that I loaded Caucasian people have been given the opportunity to try and do the Royal Game Journey each to route that you become someone else might your job because you've been good in the club. But I never seems to be the position for for young black men. One is wanting to go because I speak about football or Tom and I say it's not just Black class to do. This physios despoil scientists days you know all sorts of different jobs in a football club as you non-shocking needs to be done yet. Nine hundred nine, nine, Ninety, eight percent of it is dumbo Caucasian people. I can only get to the conclusion I only come to the conclusion. That people change your employees foot looks like then sounds like match lighting shack. With us now, shock what's great about this series. Let's. Finance, WE'RE GONNA I thought West McCain was excellent as well. Is that you have time you have time to have a proper conversation as opposed to just a five minute soundbite. and. First of all, thanks to my ex team mates and friends in the game who made themselves available for these conversations it was the also happened. A month or two ago. When we were at the height of of these discussions around race and around equality and everybody was willing to speak their truth. I thought that was very powerful because we have very different experiences in the game. We have very different outlooks even right now we occupy different positions you mentioned less finance director of Football Western mckinney as as as a current player I also interviewed. Chris. Powell who is working with the English fa and he was telling me about some of the programs they have in place in trying to increase the diversity and inclusion within English football but it highlights how multi layered. This issue is and how many different ways. I think black people have been denied opportunity. And how we now have to open those channels if we ought to recognize the racial equality that we all want to believe that this will is heading to what's shackle I didn't know and I read the article on the website which will promote in a minute that you wrote was the fact that you got involved with show racism, the red card really early in its inception while you're new council going into schools and talking. About this not. A number of things and I'm a touch, a Brittany article as well. My father, he was a teacher England and the mid sixty s was wrongfully arrested for attempted auto theft sued the Metropolitan Police and one. So that type of racial harassment has always been something that. Has. been there and has been A. In the background in my own existence, my dad also took his winnings from that lawsuit enrolled in law school. So he became a part of the judicial system. He became a part of the solution. So when the opportunity presented itself to me at Newcastle. I saw that as my as my chance of being part of the solution I had. I was recently abused has gyms as par by some kids who initially didn't recognize me then did and wanted autographs on an spoke to my my duality within within England at the time from one hundred yards away I was seen as a black man to be disrespected from twenty five yards away. I was seen as a new car footballer and want to be lauded. Show is able to use that experience in in going to schools and speaking to kids speaking my own truth and I feel resonated with them but it also, it also felt me kind of delivering on on the example that my father said. Thank you very much just reminding racism the red card available now on. ESPN. aforementioned. Article by the way available now on the website really in debt very interesting stuff shocking going deep about his involvement which racism, the red card from its very days. I'd say, then that brings us the end of today show. Thank you very much to everyone who is being. We'll be back tomorrow to reflect a more care about COBB action post lesser against also we'll say Chelsea playing. Each, the join us then. Welcoming. Of extra time. Thank you as always feel tweet shack is up and frank leboeuf with us. Frank. Have you got anything Nathan so No. No. But I, have I have a rooster right for the French. I've she got rooster checking bumblebee relevance land. That's Third College. Oh Good. He's. A good friend of mine court there. Okay and we gotta go B.'s Verner is played well out on the left White Chelsea playing out there and stick Giroux up salt that would surely take pressure off. Ease him into the premier league frank. While he's doing great. So far I mean these for the players were signed for Chelsea is the best. The best recruitment so far he does everything he has to do I. Think he has no pressure. I think frank never considered the on Jerusalem this season Jerus- maybe the third striker after. Abram and and that's what it is and statement I think you WanNa play verse as well. So there's no room for Giroux and has to take all the pressure, but he's he's begin. Frank. What did you say about this question when you heard it, I? said it was a stupid question. Look Professional. Shaikha how demoralized must be right now? Did you ever have moments in your career for you hit rock bottom and how did he regain your confidence? Remember tests I've been exactly what is I remember? As New Kosta wear. It was tough. It was it was tough. To get. Myself. To. Move. Clubs. I went from Newcastle. London Join West out. It's a hard bounce back for capital from from where years and I'm not sure what honest advice anybody could shot mentality like when you're in that sort of situation going into games, it's Just obsessed about not making mistakes. Yeah. which is kind of what surprised me about. Capitalism mistake against Liverpool if you're not playing, well, you're low on confidence. Just do things simply don't take chances I. Don't know why you tried to possible out to the back these. Did you know and those circumstances just. Kicking, long you know just be. Sensible and the side of caution but he didn't do that and going into even more trouble. And frankly folks your terrible awful games you've had for Chelsea in the past, do you how'd you over those? I tried to forget to forget the things you know asap. That's the only thing you can do. It's it's you always want to to rebound and the as possible and do good for you for your teammates. Asleep for like two days after she'll okay I'm a computer after go back in as Chuck said, just go back to the simple thing do and and make sure you do dot twelve I. We've before know making things more complicating but otherwise yeah there's nothing much to do we professional players we have to be ready for that sorts of problems that we have during our carrier and we have to make sure we can bunt is why we have been chosen as professionals. How'd you get on with just a day to day away from the football family stuff and all that when all in your head you've got all this stuff going on. That must be quite a difficult thing to deal. On one that's the challenge but then that can can be escape as well. Not I don't know what? Kept US person situation life but for me. It was good to get to we. Spent time with the family away from the game and. You. Know. Pleaded England where where everybody is a fund doesn't mean separating yourself from. You know whatever city is you're playing in you know in my you know go for a long drive and friends sometime family in in that regard. But you just have to try to find those escapes where. How You Meanwhile. Seats beginning with age thirty eight. Do the guys now any other players who played this well in their late thirties Well you. have. Zenit in Inter. Inter Milan Tin Player. Who I can say as been absolutely fantastic and to the end of his career, you have intern playing for Marseille Brazilian central defender and being foam runner is forty one and he's still giving everything football as quite amazing it doesn't play regain every time. He plays I. Mean. He's great. He just got a red card last weekend but. He's still fit and when he was thirty eight, he was still very, very competitive, getting hotter and hotter after and not that is just. An exception you have to say an exception he's a monster shocking part on the same level as last time you kind of think maybe Teddy Sheringham played late didn't he? Yeah. I figured along so Teddy Sheringham. Midwest them. He was already into sports. Believe. We together in a finalist but rest up. But yeah, you're right. No. Not at the same not the same level but Teddy Sheringham's is the only player I think of my. WHO got up to that higher need? Maybe sure I'm trying to remember her worst your best laws and when I played alongside of my first down but those those two. Exceptions to the. Ordinary rule I can think of. Does Real Madrid O'Neill role. Prove that Gareth Bale's presence in the locker room was the glue holding the team together and he was the reason they won the champions leaky. The first question. That's even worse. Sure I'm sure that is tongue-in-cheek. No doubt about that. How he's going to get I. Will I wish him the best. You wishing the. I don't know I. Don't know I mean he has all the qualities to to. To to rewire viable in facts but we don't know these mentality is the biggest question luck. I mean, if you think about golf even if It doesn't. It's not gonNA work. We'd have to go back to work to make sure that. Fitness is back and that. Everything is in the right place in his brain to make sure that you will help out the disperse think shank T- wishing well. We're all the very best. Garath. I think it'd be Greece in all honesty. I mean. As long as you can stay fit I, think big deal shank. Mizzou I'M NOT A. MAGRITTE's. Stupid question. Don't want why we don't have an answer. No answer you gave it. Is Onset. It'd be great if he stays fit well, Great East don't be on. Track No. Oh Frank Yeah. Good let's go in your. Uniform. Getting. And you have a really good t shirt shock. Okay. Frank off the haring ever have is rent the Manchester United Board about Aaron competency. Do you agree the x plays do have a part to play? Let's keep the legacy of their ex clumps. Oh. Yes. Yes. I. Agree I. Think I think it's A. Duty after serving a club to defend it strongly maybe not as strong as as ever. And did just did maybe. being a little bit. More politically correct I. We say but I I want to defend Chelsea like I want to defend Strasbourg and Marseille because I've played there and I WANNA make sure that All the new people working at the ball players were working on the field will give Andrew Jackson because the club that I played for deserve that because I share them up. and. That's the same thing for forever and any other players I remember. Seeing the themes and fantastic Peter osgood Chelsea coming to the training ground and to dressing room of before and after the game telling us how much loved Chelsea and you have to make sure that you keep on saying that the new players to the people who love the club and just did what he felt with these words but just what he felt, he thinks. United is the best in the world and he tries to defend its even against the people who are in the both I. Think it's just fair is fair for every players love club that he played four to defend it. Yeah. I listened as as experts. I think you have that right the writer of a fire to criticize the club. Dodge support and I think I speak for most of us with one notable exception but we all can all support Clubs and feeders, aware fans and US funds. You have that right? What Manchester United is also done very well over the years as ex players ambassadors for the officially as ambassadors of the club, and if if that's the key I don't know about that if he is not only does have a right I think he has a responsibility to speak up when he sees something that that he doesn't like no I, get the point there the federal we used to do that but if has been trying to reach out to this jennings or whatever his name was Woodward and and I'm not able to make any headway. In, traditional means and calling them I'm trying to arrange meeting the speaker them that way then yes. Go onto social media and call them out if if that's what you feel you need to do. On the anniversary of eleven Basque's five, zero out in nine minutes. What was the best individual performance of the guys have ever seen in person? Opposite the burn about when run out Dina was unbelievable in the classical extraordinary got sanitation two thousand and finally. That's mine for now. Dean you Frank. In. Person I. Just to name the the World Cup final when. School, two goals and it was absolutely exceptional. But I wanNA grog it when I had the chance to score a hat trick as a defender and scoring two penalties and there was a third one and you don't want to shoot. But I stayed up and the missed it but the goalkeeper released the ball and I called the third one. So scoring a hat-trick as essential half central defender is course something and I was there in person because it was meet, it's not real. To scenes and in a rebound. I've seen the replay of you're the one you're encroaching as well if that was baldy. was a hot trick and as you see that. Hat trick is called to, and that's the third one because the game means the penalty. So. We'll see that Caveney e Cardi three never scored a goal because the. Goal is to. Mock. So that's what I did on the third goal. So please Don denied my my my third goal and my hat trick only one of my carrier for Gutsy who you paying again Sunday twelve. The story about that and you are. Somebody. Doing something exceptional is that the player was being against and player who did the three foul for the was the same one. City three penalties. He wasn't a hero he sounds really good. Chocolate yeah. Yeah. That was good. Thanks for the World Cup Sweden. He posted. To best innovative performances playing for Newcastle three down at home to Leicester. Alan Shearer scores a hat trick we went for three. But, the best individual performance obscene I've witnessed played a weird Stamford Bridge Chelsea get a man sent-off. Eleventh Minute. We go on and scored the twelfth through we one up at Stamford Bridge and then D- drug bust Hicks gave over in a way I had never seen anybody. He was simply unplayable Chelsea basically plead. AIDS at the back of drug about front the one four, one Kelly, it was as best individual performance has ever witnessed from the sublime to the ridiculous without mentioning Names Shack Kit can you tell us the worst blunder defender on your team commits resulted in a go frank west Howard goalkeeper on your team committed you can name names. Can't think of any like really bad blunder. I remember. One. That stands out is just gotten back into the team up at Newcastle we hold. Screws. Seven on a strange as it may sound I played really well that game and then right to the death. I think he's got a corner. I'm John Beresford. I. Remember. If he scored an own-goal or just dwelling on the ball in the box or think he kicked it to somebody on the ball went in Lost McLean. She's. In thousand nine hundred minute after really well, that's that's kind of stung. Only WanNa really remember but. IT WASN'T A. Up. With Frank. towards the international game, we play in Russia Russia against France and. And during the discussion before the game in. said to, US defenders never never done. Give the ball to the Pearl. On the bad state you know and you would put him in danger but one after fifteen minutes know note nothing to do but giving the ball to keep her because I was under pressure at and I make sure I made sure that with the ball just outside in case you would miss it but he controlled it and the only thing he had to Chris Guy. To Take on the striker and he missed it and we lost one nil. The Wall. So, it's a bit of my of me because I gave him the ball. So maybe Checking she backed. What's up with a? good. That's not knowing High. Frank. That's nice. A Hike Frank L.. O.. Away from. We see. No. Squeaking noise. Hi Frank. Maradona said Ronaldo and his Aria would become the greatest ever over pellerin himself if not for the injuries do you agree? Okay we'll, Cup, final. Put over everybody else right. Because for me is is somebody I think All Of the proportion would have been even even bigger and better. So I think police the top of the top I never been a big fan of Mara Donna. And Renaldo yes. Of course, he has meaning juries, but he was already almost there. Would have been better. Would I be better than than? Maybe maybe we will never know, but he was absolutely fantastic that absolutely the picture abo shoulder set Palais isn't it? Chelsea. On Francois Yes after the Yes. Yeah. After the final game to to to somebody and Pelican came and and well I had to kiss from and he said, you know when I see you feel good which is pretty good for from from Philly. So I said you know what? Don't say anything at anything you can go have a glass of champagne for me. To everyone does name. It's like when you ask him who's got copy Japan's which country you're. Just spending all the time. So you think that he would have been would have seen checkout during an intimate. Trinidad and Tobago. Win The win the WORKUP. Yes. Okay, he'd be right. Okay. Next time you same. Awesome. Sound very well Frank. What did you know how to speak? English. Why don't you like Maradona? I think football is a game you play eleven's against eleven. You know what I mean. I. Think. I don't like the demand I. Don't like the way he was living his life. I. Wouldn't be the example give to to youth and. I met him once and I wasn't wasn't Nice I. Think He. Thinks. He's better than anybody else. So you don't like him where I met the biggest and they always being humble, which is not the case. So I have no, it wasn't fantastic. Food borough was a fantastic. Dribbler whatever you want to say but I like I like Platini Because Platini was giving to others. Mouth was keeping the world for himself and that's not the way I see football after that is a fantastic fantastic player but no, my top of layer. So shocker Pele sense of frank lots of Nice things and now he's the greatest Maradona not so nice forget about every. Selfish. Exactly. I'm glad you use something typically they're done because hit as well. Shocking. You love for now. Yes. I do. Agree with the questions injuries he would have. I think you just stop this December as agreed without without question. You just see what he what he did. He was when when he was fit over, you know a two or three year period. He does that for eight or nine, which was quite within the possibilities give him his age I. Don't think it would even be a discussion of this. Did you did you face each other internationally at all? Did. You ever have a conversation with him where he said they loved watching. Run every time you play I feel. Westbrook you to you have something against me today or what? I. Don't know how I know because I never say that like my roden because. I to me. Like. The way he played four and that's it. Wasn't. Meaning wasn't Hembo. Always, not only me but the other. So he said you're understanding was in two thousand six. Two Thousand Six Cup and there's so many other players and you say L. looked nobody. So I wasn't only me when I see Philly Bauer Keegan all those big stalls being emboldened saying hi to everybody. That's it. I heard he said you a terrible actor as well. Mobile. Not. Right. Fodder questions shocking. What is the strategy while facing penalties pick aside to dive or wait until the last moment to see if you determine which side the strike is going to go. Oh. Well, it's true strategies. Okay. I think us if during a game and generally is the best you take on the team. Hopefully you're. Works. Preferred side on you leave it to the very last minute and hope you can get it. If, as an opponent to shoot, you have one main teacher, you have maybe a second choice. But you have three who probably going to take more than one or two parents kicks during the course Judy coast of the season between them. So you can you can leave litter and leave leave. I tried to see what what they do because. You're thinking is not going to be that good that exact or they might be new themselves. So you have a charge of mcleese leaves that we how would you fancy your chances frank now Cheka in a penalty. For every time I see frank. Another question having a question. How many penalty did you stop? You stop. Checkup. A few I didn't count trunk I remember seeing a couple of commanded new. Account. You sure did you stop one? Guy. Saved. I have saved a few. I said the Michael, Owen pounds the on my fifty fifty. Beat Liverpool one nil in the effort. Are With Not was was he already, Balladur? It'd be lost two thousand. Doesn't count. It doesn't come. With you chances against shocker now. Now? Yes. Yes. Before Maybe not before but Yeah. You never know he's kind of lottery you know. Just. Picture. We've got Maradona says. No chance shocker would save. US Right. For the first time, he's white full to things. Like just going back to the store you attending before about hat trick. Why didn't you take the third? Your hat trick penalty. because. I'm a humble person because you're. Not. No No. No you don't like today. Today. Because of humidity I want I don't want to offend the good keeper. That's that's really true. I had a fracture in one of my I. So I, was seeing only. Wide. Does true that's true and. I thought he was he was better for another one to to school because I didn't know where to put the ball because I put on the left side right side whether you went through the third one. So I, let my friend kicking it. The way I stayed up and he missed it and I scored. So that's only what we call humility which long military. Hanging out and you didn't know which place. Can I have two reasons for in my life? I've two reasons. On ESPN essay. We'll be back tomorrow. Thank you as always. Maybe, I. All special. Tomorrow. He doesn't speak English. To.

Solskjaer on the Hot Seat?

"Welcome insulate sedition. Spnfz down today in the champions league was all the pao group page. We'll talk about life experience. Psg in a moment but will start in turkey when it's time volvo. Sachse here beat manchester united by two goals to one to register. That i have. I have a goal in the history of the group stages of the competition shock his shirt robson and craig burley with us craig. They deserve the win. As well. Airbus when i said to your boss to this games you won't watch and he says Leipzig psg okay. And can you watch united against that team and eastern builders second very difficult not dot game. He must think you're going to be the guest. This keep on and he was. He was absolutely right because once again united make the headlines for the wrong reasons and what is also say after the debacle against us know that woeful performances. Well you know we came and we weren't really say and not to your game and well. Here's an is a repeat for five minutes of the same performance with the unable. Do the basics against as a much per parasite and then the two goals that gave away guys on top of that. I mean that. Not even school boy stuff. And we're talking about my innate here. So listen dan the caucus checking out full defeats than seven games with ever we can. The clock is ticking. If he loses on saturday how the hell do you go to your book. Your shareholders doesn't say five defeats in eight games. Hose out for the united the in good enough if that happens it that weekend. Let's talk about that. First goal robbo because it kind of an indictment on everything. That's wrong with manchester united. At the moment everyone was opposite if it was the ninety fifth. Minute eighty no one was about mark in denver. Bob picks up the ball goes up. The other end and school prayed. Says he wouldn't see that at schoolboy level whenever when you're going to play send you send the hobbs up you get people you always have to. But if they've got one said the forward you usually have to buy one market behind one marketing from well matic who was marketing from but it was actually behind the completely so i didn't even know he was there. That point I think Barack hussein might around forward at the wrong time so the wide open but it was an extraordinary go and it just shows a lack of organization lack leadership on the field as well because when the synapse go out for the corner they should be making sure. It's all sorted out the goalkeeper. No it was henderson and go. He's going to be telling people in front of you know you go to get back go side one one go side on the other side of him so he can't get the ball into his feet. It's a lack of organization lack discipline and the lack of leadership. Who takes the blame overall. Rubber wants to blame the goalkeeper shacking. I think he's done to all social in all honesty. Um on bassac aside. But he's involved in the setpiece not not just wants a given gobert he gets back and if the right back gets involved wamba soccer is actually supposed to be sitting a little bit deeper and he gets involved in the play showing you on new training ground. Who's supposed to drop in in place of him or two point. You have some kind of leadership on on the field. Two zero wamba soccer's involved. I've got to drop drop inside or he's pick somebody else to japan but nobody does and then gets caused caught boil watching denver by realizes either just drifts off the back of him which i mean. That wasn't the only time that happened to the game. He was doing that all game long. Just peeling off boxer into space and alone clearance and he's not understand. The point was making that head sensitive course somebody back as well. But i i sympathize. Everybody goes a long way. Yup you're probably screaming your head off You know whether anybody's mind or not. I just feel that. In terms of of initial blame. It has to be managed and it has to be social on the sidelines for not having his organization Better prepared than that done. Let's get to the crux of s. Right hari mcguire was out this week. After the game smarting criticism from some pundits about leadership. Haven't any right so he can come out and raise your head above the powerpoint and tell all the nonsense. He wants this shit right. Secondly at no point will the football We're talking about elite level players. Some of them annually should be playing for. The club should get themselves not possession but if these players are too dumb to understand that and it seems some of that man united are then there is no excuse for mayfield and all souls not to have that salted the desert. Excuse if you're planning to ban the bill of one hundred thousand of the new camp around feel or even old trafford when phil house and the atmospheres hall and sometimes and we know his players. You can't hear everything. Note the grounds handful of people. It's not difficult to get that message on quickly because you say oh they never have this because you could whisper. These can hear you so if the players are not clever enough to be softer then. What the hell of the coaching staff doing. What they're looking up does no excuse to get onto these players with no crowd that they're not breaking off smart enough and have the will intellect and the first half of a champions league game which by the way the grips. No wait open to get a good possession so borrows don't effect players and pure coach. Those packing social. How concerned would you be shocked. I mentioned robbo in that opening first. Half dan ball world-class and no one's doing anything about it. Yeah the homes. Didn't read it well enough to know harry with. He's on the other side but he played off to zombie and to be. There was one incident where the goal was just about to kick the ball. You can see them. Ballpoint exactly where he won't to move in these heads saying stick it in behind tunes he's looking at it and the voice still got played over the top and he got there then. The ball is strikes thirty five. He struggles around. So it's a real problem but they weren't just the problems that mentioned not that. That's the defensive side. The attacking side was wrong as well. When you look the one thing you do as a coach when you go into any clobber you or you're working on the team shape. How are we going to get the bull from back to from. What's gang plan if the opposition squeeze up stick it in behind if they compact. We're gonna have the i'm going behind. I'm not sure that marcus ashworth mousy made one running behind when somebody i'm on the bowl. They wanted to come short not just received with what we that back to play. They wanna come short backings in midfield. Now who's telling them no. That's not the right thing to do. We've got to turn the opposition round to stub. Then we're going to get rooms apply. Now we can get bruno fernandez in the game. Then we can get matter in the game but to start with. We're going to turn the opposition. Round and marcus rush unless the game is open those runs. Marshall missed the game. He's opened that blind kanter's tacking. He doesn't like those runs a nice lack of game knowledge and lack of understanding from the coach to get them to do it. Where was the response in the second half check. I don't know that was the most confusing thing. And i think that speaks exactly would rebel is talking about in terms of lack of preparation. A lack of any any offensive game plan given how the half ended with moscow scoring. And you feel team talks. Halftime team talks to come. There would have been a lot of finger pointing a lot a lot of blame around the two goals. But all the sudden you're back in the game and now momentum is is is in your fever you've dominated possession for forty five so surely no. It's an opportunity for you to push up. Not only that you call only likes of greenwood of cavani pogba coming off the bench. No he's sitting bit deeper you. Have you have all causing the city in terms of talent between the two and yet still in the second forty five. The only real scare. That is tom had came in one thousand. Nine hundred minute goal line clearance of what would have been an all. That's all manchester united. How to speak about in terms of any kind of offensive threat and again that for me. And i'm i'm doing to be taken only gonna social here but when you have that kind of starting eleven where you have that kind of firepower coming off the badge out. Your only goal comes from an istanbul header. Then that's really on your part it goes down. It goes by what about sorry. Rob opened knocking nail in the head for for with the hammer for weeks and weeks. Maybe months know that when united sites that set deep and are weaker on paper. This is what we get generally no time. But generally when ness united site play seti in the last twelve months or so when they play the psg of this world and all those who come on them who dominate them who have better players the planners has been all along to say embiid defensive and on the council with pace. But we don't we don't play these teams. You know twice a week quite often. We played teams are weaker and more defensive and there is no plan. There is no plan even when you look at us now. With a new coach you know it'll drop us a midfielder into the back four and you push push back into way possession. You're the winger and narrowed the trying different things. He's trying different things. He's a new coach source causing a new coach. People need to remember. He's been management over ten years a decade right. He's not new. Not new to this game you know. He was in norway site back. Came in as interim coach. Not new to this game was no plan for united unless the plane the teams which even against rb leipzig a better team and they were played and then on the counts. Retired capitulated does the plan as the united when they play puna teams no space and behind. Generally they've struggled a nasa problem. You just have to look at the shape of the midfield as well. I'm not quite sure what he wants. It bruno fernandez and matter to do he's message and don't even the bike don't event. Is these best what he's planning for the forward and making runs into the box. East brand is a holding midfield and comfortable after the first ten fifteen minutes you got one master plan out on the right hand side not particularly happy. Because he's never gonna go past. Anybody is going to come in on these left and bruno fernandez was planted alongside him at time. So i'm not sure. What the shape of the midfield was. And if you have no when you've got the ball you have very little shake when you lose it because you're out of shape and that's when the opposition can counterattack and that's what happens today. Don maria games into the season come the end of the weekend primarily and domestic. What would that be four five league games. Whatever as he walks out of goodison on south of the as with another defeat. Where do we go. Where does edward go. We'll do the goal. What are they supposed to say is that i mean five defeats in games for anybody. Struggling mediocre team would have the manager and hotseat and that's how big search for him and what highs show no team up and has failed them. And we've talked about. This is that when he's been up against severely and he has already got a result cannot continue that we can't who knows because everyone started well but the the buffalo who knows but we'll saw short into the season that's only just started but already it's coming home to bear for him and the club could all going in the wrong direction and i sent the weekend could come to head. I mean i really do. How long do you let it go. How long do you let it go if they lose every weekend. But even if they don't even if they result against everton rob there's absolutely no consistency in this side which is kind of paint a picture of what's happened over the last three or four weeks which leads to you. Were saying that. That doesn't seem to be a plan. You know the best manages when you look at team without even knowing the pleasure and say well. That's a josie marino to more. That's alex ferguson team. Because they've played to a certain pattern they got patents play that they've been working and in training and training they turn the opposition round to start with then boys themselves spicy midfield to play. So you know what they're trying to do and they do it very well when i watched manchester united. I've seen now for a year and a half with only to social or y- and i keep seeing the same things how they going to get the ball into those from players. They 'cause they keep coming into spices where there is no space so the midfield plays after go square breaks. That's why the plan so slowly because the front making any runs but why isn't the coach sort in the l. Wasn't he get in the game. The game and tonight when the ball changes and manchester united's efforts when it back was really poor and i'll go with the front so again it starts with the front if they lose possession rush for the mall sale today when they lost possession the beaumont three yards away from there was no effort to try and when it back again and so the istanbul by shack sheer.

Open the host coming from behind the fringe champions by two goals to one craig. Robo still with us. Frank leboeuf joining us as well frank this evening. Just go from to worse than the after team penalty. Conceiving the two goals. Nps getting two cents off as well. Yes the mini players were injured. You know before the game so we thought it would be hard out game or but he studied very well de maya scoring goal. But it's true that after the penalty that he missed we went for the full. The worst and saudi we the google home and cousseran scoring a goal for for life seeing equalizing the former player and after during the second half. We don't recognize the party. And that's what it is we. What did you find big adversity. When you find players you know finding together you don't see any any any more in a positive person inside in what happened and then after you have read called and then you keep him be losing his mind completely and smashing said and getting another you look read called. And that's just fair for life to win the game because they behave as a real chaim reacting to a bad start but finishing very well which is absolutely not the case of our essential man. It's mentioned craig. of course. big injuries now. Imbaba neymar in this team. Does that give me excuse. No because all these teams should have big scores. We shouldn't feel sorry for the mindset east liverpool's by psg the real madrid because they've got the most money in the should of the biggest gordon you've got you've got to court. There was a lack of discipline Those lucky fluid and say yeah. They started it looked. it looked almonds for for rb. Leipzig looked will let shave the back. And i for here we go. They say mistakes were open traveled west but the the gal themselves in depressurized and then the end okay. Demaria master penalty but deserve to win. And i don't know front can help me here. Every time i i think free for should look at these challenges now and go to look away and say when a cynical challenge one compound be made. I think it was on pokes thank you. I'm not quite sure was no clear attempt to play the ball. I think it should be a straight red particularly when it's dangerous but that something for down the lane. But frank. Every tame i c can be played it gives me something in terms of it. Kept some just always seems to be making a howler and big games every tennessee and play and i don't watch the french league all the time for obvious reasons who in a seemingly champions league. He does things in the game. That just makes scratch your head. I agree with you from the past until that game. Especially but i think since the beginning of the season he went to another level. It was really the dusan half. We were expecting from him with the talent that he has not making any any stupid mistakes stupid foul but he's true. He had a decent game today. He made a great save on send just before and then because he thinks that he can get him. It will tackle him like crazy and really deserve the red card where you have other games that the injuries that daniel and myself were mentioning before it would have been useful to have key pembe for for the other three games that they have to play and now they we'll have two other players missing which is absolutely a disaster for man because if you don't go through the group stages michael big question marks about to her about some players but even man where to go wrong for them today. Robert name are by missing. You've got to midfield three of herrera. You got martinez. Who is a good holiday midfield player. But he's not that creative and and that's been the problem for them just a guy. The other midfield player three in that sentiment food aren't really creative place. You've got florenzie when he was at rome now he's a full but he's not going to charge for it. Crosses into the box and make things happen. And because i always say the same down the other side so to have a good hard work midfield players when you go by name on the side when you haven't got those in the side you need more creativity and that's a problem for. Psg going food now. What about this group when you take a look at it. United didn't live sick both on six points. Psg some born three points craig. Who's going through. Psu now if they are going to get better right. They go to protect the go-to manchester. They have rb leipzig in eastern bill. Home and i don't think that's too much the ice to pick up three ones from those games bear in mind. Yeah they'd louis. In paris manchester united. But we know how awful they are. Let let's be frank borough and you know not an easy game but if you get more than the players back then i i still think. Parsons your for tickle sake should make it through then straight fe. I believe between manchester united out be leipzig for the second place. Robot can you foresee any way which. Psg don't go through. No i think when they get the full team back. I think that when they some of their remaining games win enough points to to get through. I think they've got enough quality but they need those two plays back very quickly if they can. If they succeed frank well the two players where there the last time against manchester united and we saw the results. So i mean it's morning the mentality of all the players to react and to behave as a team. I can't imagine a person very not going through the thing that it's possible for them to reverse the situation and making sure that they're going to go through. But i want to see everybody behaving Of the differently because otherwise it's going to be a nightmare for the club as just said before gentlemen as always thank you very much to check out extra time over on youtube. Channel robot in shaikha answering your tweets. Boston and continued that perfect south the group stages of the champions league with a two one victory over dynamo kiev to reflect on this game i. It's it's never simple for barcelona the my right messy gets the penalty after five minutes. Good then kick all always win. But they didn't niro made sure didn't they. Sure did they manage to make viz so much more difficult than it needed to be now for a little bit of context. Let's just cannot give the perspective as to what this version of dynamo kiev wa student. This was a team that was that was missing thirteen players due to a combination of kobe and injuries mostly covert and so therefore what you had out. There was a bunch of kids that never really had participated in champions league or had very limited experience The best example of that is legal initiative. Eighteen years old. Who was making his second. Professional appears not champions league appearance professional appearance. And so if you're barcelona and just mentioned you go in after five minutes penalty kick by messy. Okay we're flying betting its oppose grace Mississippi center but you still think all right. Well it's only a matter of time Not so much. After that months ago not became slow and slower and slower west and predictable and again began to turn to the point to where if i wear to say okay who was outstanding today for celona. Who had an mvp performance. Who was sort of guy that you look at it and say you know what that guy did his job. Today it will start. Studying concerns taken off of injury. He actually gets an opportunity to play. And you think he's just gonna easiest way back way back. He had to make four. I'm not exaggerating. When i tell you this. Four big safe. Two of them were actually world class against the normal care to keep the game either one nothing or do nothing eventually becomes to one and barcelona hanging on enter having to come up with tapes again so all the performances that barcelona has had under ronald koeman in which you could say you know they being uneven underwhelming frustrating this of all of those performances. This was the worst and while you can say. Well mesh ed their goalkeeper that i just mentioned came up with a bunch of sei's and this and that the other it was so very frustrating. Do see barcelona playing the way that they were against bunch of kids running around and be normal gift that all they were doing external hang on trying to do the best possible we could. They're very tough circumstances and indian. They made a game out of it. Credit to dynamo kiev but man was also from barcelona again l. Sway your fences with a much needed victory away from home ali our maranto and a couple of goals like about miranda is is the of the jokes the off size the blah blah blah. But he keeps showing up yes. He does and due to sneed automotive that to keep showing up because he does give you an actual natural striker guy who whether you like them or not whether you appreciate him are not as a player. he's going to be in and around anything. So if you create kansas for him usually when he can stay onside he's gonna score the tap and he's gonna score nice header on this as a ball also him inside the box on a nice lead by western mckinney on a on a nice counter-attacked play and the finish was magnificent from what at cleanest clinkenbeard and so. You're thinking a confidence or confident. I more that helps out juventus not only because of the productivity. He can get you but what he can do with. Cristiano ronaldo and kind of take some of the pressure of cretan overnight. Low and to that point. I will also say that the fact that powder while at comes off the bench who we saw when rinaldo came off the bench himself over the weekend and made the difference ever now made. Md roddick had been terrible or the week actually comes off the bench today. He's presented with a gifts course. Goal creates a fourth one. And i just think overall all of that helps prevent those big picture because he up mode at the scoring goals you have another with his confidence and then you have the rela who says okay. I don't know. I do not know what my role is just yet with. This team would not go back from injury. But at least i'm scoring a goal here and there and that helps you in to take a look at the standings as you would expect really when the draw was made pasta on top of the table. They will advance to the knockout stages of kiev burns. Barrels at the bottom continues this weekend awesome. Friday swallow taking you on euthanasia. That game live on. Espn plus two forty five. Really you take a look at it. Sunday huge game isn't it. Lots against event is six fifteen pm on. Espn two followed by atalanta against insular. Lan on espn plus the great thing about facts. They're proving like the fact that crude oil contains impurities base oil made from natural gas ninety. Nine point five percent free of impurities in the fact that pennzoil is the first thank motor oil made from natural gas not crude oil. It gives you unbeatable engine protection. The proof is in the pennzoil based on sequence where tests using sae w thirty available at pep boys elsewhere chelsea could result them at stamford bridge at three. Zero victory over ran put very much in the driving seat to qualify for the knockout stages team verner with a brace. Tommy abraham getting the third. Frank leboeuf et on this game. Frank chelsea get it done three points move on lovely exactly nothing much to say. Because he's very hard to to say what so we really feel about the game. Dow two teams behave because of referring refers decision which was which was quite right. You know about the penalty and maybe the red card but what about the handball of zuma the question that we have to ask him but overall you just see did what they had to do even if they are to face a good run for like twenty twenty five minutes but it's funny to see that we thought the chelsea was show what they thought capable of doing offensively when in fact they're showing us solidity defense and with the fantastic duo mandy were made again a fantastic save and also always a box of moosh musha. There's the very solid altogether and it's funny because we were all expecting to see doodle. Many many goals and talents in the in the in full lines which is more right. Now defensively though. I'm very pleased with chelsea. I'm surprised you agree with the referee. That second penalty is harsh words and they will do leg onto his hand. That's tough yet but that doesn't exist anymore. It doesn't matter if you touch another part of your body. It was like before september now. Eight matt doesn't matter in the sixteen box if the ball touches your your hand in hand handball. But it was a case for zuma and the ready didn't go to the var didn't wasn't called by the or it's very strange but otherwise there's nothing much to say but a penalty against ren and that's only normal so you expect when you take a look at group chelsea and severe top of the table so if you're out to work hard by the way you know that if they were to nail down they came out to krasnodar by three goals to two. Bruce feldman go toba group after offered a three victory against the club. Brugge shocked by with us. Reflect on this game where once again a surfing earned harland with grab all the headlines shack rightly show. I mean jalen's instinct in toronto right now. Seems almost second to none. Always seems to be in the right place at the right time and clinical eliza now as much as holland grabs the headlines with his brace. Brutal was simply awful. I mean did the conceding of the first goal was was a comedy of errors and andy. Mouth go away and ten just body. Language and the bruce players suggested that now the game was over even then the second goal would more era laden holland governor romney this i go on a double that for dominate win. Three it was. It was a cantor. It was very easy for bursar document. I don't think they're gonna get many games. This level of competition that dot go as as early as at eleven goals already for holland in the champions league already looking at christiana renowned is ultimate record. He what what you're gonna love about enthusiasm for scoring goals always want always wants to put it into the back of the net and the stupidest that sounds imagine. You'd see that from any. He just shows it so beautifully thing about highlanders as much as you see always wants to be on. The end of things always always wants to go for gold. He's selfish when you find himself in front of goal if if it isn't a arbitrator if somebody's in a better position on he's happy to hand ball i just read. That holland is is so clinical. He hits the ball so well on his instinct as to where to be at exactly the right time realizes age his twenty years old. Now i mean that kind of instinct. You see an players a little bit. Get to understand how the bosses but from the time he can hit the headlines he seems seems to have that old ahead on the shoulders and then as i say added to that kind of finishing. Paula dotty highs Second to none other than maybe levin dolph ski was a different different of of his own career but it speaks a complete package of a finisher. That considered is only going to get better because of his age shock. Thank you very much. Meanwhile in the other game any one latte cio one so as a result dormant. Go talk at a table with bruceandpamela against munich on saturday. The first of the season and it is law on espn plus extended coverage starting at twelve pm eastern. Hey it's your homie.

It's the end of today. Show thank you very much to everyone who has been with us. Beach will stay tuned for extra time shock rover with me to welcome addition of extra time. Thanks always be three. Shocker here slot with us as very elegant as always robson nothing on underneath but looks good on why discipline. The plane go to ali. The back line is defending like they're playing in the sunday league no organization whatsoever an aboard at even jurgen klopp would be sacked if he'd be in a situation like this robo No the money to tell you is the criticism because how good you back for a half four. You can always make them better. You got to work with them day in day out and training. I mean if you see the very best coaches they make this the bat for their back three really saw. They know what they're trying to do. And it looks to me as though the manager and these coaching haven't done enough work with the defense them with midfielder defend then done enough work with trump plaza. Were trying to defend defending starts from the front of works backwards and don't think all eager gonna social and he's coaching team. Know exactly what. Their game plan is defensive. That's why takes the blame. I think it's tough. Isn't it shot. Because those who defend social have come out and said look. He hasn't been given the place that he wanted in the transfer market. You gave him unless they were given. I think to a stage yet. Okay matches like today. You think right. You're coach go out there and prove that you're the coach. And today as we saw the spurs against also. It just isn't working. I think that's our number things. The board not backing anyway that maybe he would have wanted. You could probably suggests that up. Probably i think you'd be right to suggest that the same time. It's an incredibly talented squad. Don't has got the best out of. I don't think anybody is improved under under early. Socia- does just take harry maguire. For example. remember how good he was for less. Why you'd probably manchester united to spend eighty-five million pounds for him now. All of a sudden you're looking at him on on. He doesn't a shadow of himself simpler. I love that speaks to defensive. Organization approach work with the players and speaks to the fact that good teams on just about buying good sidewalks for some. But you have to do. Some coaching under under social has done that at the same time. Giving money to begin. Debate was going on with him. He gave him nine times so right now give the clothing continues to hang over. Socia- why do you give two hundred million to spend for arguments. This is a weird question because there is an factuality robot. But i'm just intrigued. Obviously you probably you could argue one of their worst first-half performance under social. I can't imagine a him though. Going and screaming shouting. Which i know isn't necessarily always the right thing to do. Okay say what were you doing for that goal. Really trying to trying to lift them. It doesn't come across sort of manager. No there's several ways you can more at the players in the second of first of all you might want to scream and shout and then you might want to Give him a kick up the backside. You always wanna put an arm round one or two of them. But you also an i always felt. This is a pla- year half thicky information. This is going to change the game. You're gonna play there. We're gonna get the bullying to that area there and we're gonna start our move from that position there. We're gonna cry to be one down the fall. So i keep switching whatever it may be if you give good information the plaza will take you onboard and being spied but i'm not sure i don't know but i'm not sure that that information is coming to the players. Shocker it would you have run out the taco them up. The field for the first goal shocking. Run i've found himself in a risk right now with looking to try to keep them separate matic de not making it but but yeah that maybe. That's something had this daughter. Listen to always go wrong. I don't know how they got that wrong. I do check a wendy's the point when you know to go to To to leave your line. Yeah you're looking for an opportunity. You're looking for denver. Balata push the ball on. You think you can get there either before all right all right off them to make a dividend efforts touch good. I'd never really bought never that we've from him and there's not a whole lot you can do what you waiting for that mystique. Hey shocker can haul and be one of them to christiane out of single season champion. Goals record wouldn't he needs to move to a trade whether qualities hoya i'm more chances often created Listen i i think i think holland regardless of where he is as is going to break some records get close to others for right now even if he goes to real madrid and they dominate european for board. I'm i'm i don't think he's going to break renaldo record. I think what we've seen from renaldo messy over the last decade decade plus as. I can't see anybody right now. Getting getting close. Would i tape back. Words robert said bad words over the years that seeing what he said wrong time we've robot take back his words about now that he's going to be pillows biggest problem Events us What else what. I said when what. I meant when i said that is the deal. And he's he's got he's got and he's he's got his mind how he wants to play on shore and he that everything has to revolve around out because if you play on the left hand side you know he's not gonna defend their so he's gonna make sure he's he's left. Saudi midfield play a tux across and the defense for him. He knows he's not always going to stay on the left wing been the biggest problem would be renowned. No i didn't say he was going to be a messy program in terms of trouble mica coach when you have such a big player. But he's saying we've all you remiss considering. They've missed him though. Haven't they never own done. Oh yes you must realise. Thomas get on so well okay thought. Oh yeah who isolate still has the hammer of the now. This is the discussion that you three net.

Will Solskjaer Sink or Swim?

"Welcoming solicitation of ESPN AFC don. Thomas unique have the chance to win yet. Another Bundesliga gets so on Tuesday as a way against relegation-threatened Vertebrae. I'm an eighth win would do it and that would make it eight consecutive championships. Craig Burley and off. You'll with me to discuss that Yan and people getting bored and find winning all the time. Well, they're getting bowled, but getting more border dot, who can't take the big points or sovereign putting Sancho Sean John benching big game and. Vare in Col- don't see a handball on Tanga. Maybe could have changed the game or Arbor. CEDUNA NEXTSTEP TO BE CHALLENGER I mean. We can't do by immunity worse. We have to do the other teams better, but of course this this German seasonal or like you said eight season a know that winning, but I think. But I think that you respect so much by doing at the moment you see the young guys coming in now. They managed to replace them so I think people are more or less impressed by buying being up there if if we Champions League tomorrow. I will have to have my favorites for types than just impressive what I've done. This is the problem though, isn't it? CRAIK Champions League isn't tomorrow. In theory bombings, last game will be July Fourth, which is the German Cup final and then report suggesting that we're GONNA. See this final eight in Lisbon, which will start on August the twelve. That is a long break Abiam. Yeah what you're looking for an ideal scenario. Suggest. Just. The John Because jahns right at the moment buying clearly the best team around because they've been playing than anyone else. However, that's GonNa. Come against them, surely come to return of Champions League action. But I think there is an essay. Lately there's some sort of diminished feeling about when the Champions League that. She always thinks assigning. It's still good. They WANNA win. It's. Well thanks all, but not in the same sense that the in a normal season, because of all the scenarios local, dumb lucky I forget this. But lucky with started again, all these leagues are starting to kick off the Bundesliga was the foster diesel. Hey, it's not an ideal scenario, and they're one of the clubs have been affected by it by default. They go up and running early. So, there's not really innocent. It can do not psg plato, because the French their football down. So it's not an ideal scenario I get. They'll go away rest for keep himself play some friendlies and then I still think there'll be in good shape. They'll be in good shape because of good a good coach now and the good got a bloody good sabre. Some good youngsters, so I think they'll just be fine. Don't be too concerned. The boat them don well I'm more concerned about us. Looking at the champions, league matches he. Share is it no one really cares I. Could. Go there because I think we don't have to be worried about buying. They will have a plan already. You know the Germans they always do that. Remember at the one. World Cup when England the England team I touched a World Cup bowl after the season Nanda. Has Play with full like was six months, so they will be prepared but I think I don't agree with Craig I. Think the Champions League seeing five six years? Down the road who wanted to Champions League twenty twenty people will be quite happy on I'm not sure that Craig maybe talk to Liverpool fans there were. Will they not happy with winning the primarily this season either? No, but they're going to win. The Premier League season with a full schedule, champ is not going to be a full schedule is going to be played. One, country, it's going to be played over one legs, so it's been slightly diminished because it's for my, it's hard to change and so yeah I listen I'm not I'm not. It's not that I'm not watching it. I mean it's still going to be still going to be a great competition is just not going to be as strong as it was for. The reasons mentioned. Teams don't this year they don't want. An important thing is more important we get the League seasons finished, and if we can get this Champions League done. Albeit and a different format that. I think that's going to be exciting. Craig off as neutral venues. All the big boys going heads hand well. Yeah, the I'm not. I'm not I'm not denying up. You're not recognizing the factual points I'm giving you is that they've had to change the format to get the job done on the format of changed, and the League's so far is not of any funds, the still playing the Games still plane home and And Away instead still twenty two years in the field, but the Champions League of how to change the formula. That's factual Daniel Right. I'll give you on the show I know you can be facts, but I don't know why. That necessarily goes hand in hand with it being diminished just because it's different doesn't mean it's less significant well. You've got a chance to chance to win over two legs. That's my point. A normal circumstances. You got a chance to win over two legs, so in this case scenario. That's one and done so different. So you, load the away game rules. The craziest one of them goes to bed the away goal rule, so you always get it right, Winna. No, we got appropriate. Import to go, we will love it. We can't go back to sixty six assay because of the linesmen pro. John was blind. England's World Cup triumph were dismissed. But of course you're Scott, so you're probably said I won't. Okay. Away from Champions League. Up Bruce Dortmund Magnon, I just wanted to talk about. Reports. suggesting that no one's made any bids yet for Jadon Sancho of course heavily linked to move to Manchester United. What is, it's quite interesting I mean it's anybody's guess what would happen to this transfer window Liverpool coming out quite strongly. We knew quite early that they wouldn't spend that much money. On team of Anna and much money being done fifty five million euro, who then Chelsea position to get one of the best prospects in the world at the moment to get him to do Chelsea with Sanchez true, there is no actually. Offer now on the table. What my people endorsements telling as that he wants to go, so he wants to leave the club Sebastian. Kehl and sore at dope. They Got Saints One day. We will. We want to keep this player at the club, but I think Sancho will leave. I can't tell you where he would go. Because we don't know about the market at the moment there are, there are so many things going on night for Liverpool as well. Maybe they plan to sell one for one hundred million could go to by Vanna for half the price. Anyone's guess at the moment. I think essential being another club for the next season. And before we let you go, show us where you are. You're in the Arctic circle on you in the moments. The North Pole Look Beautiful. Wow very nice. Craig says it's diminished because it's real window, but don't worry. It's okay it's not. It's not appropriate show from. Craig. ESPN at on you'll. Be Reflecting on that gaming. Germany between Munich Vertebrae and A Great Week of action than in Europe as you mentioned before. Take on Bram, also pastor against leg. then. You have the return of the premier. League villa against Sheffield. United Manchester City playing host to are so, and it's also the final as Napoli take on eventers after that Real Madrid against Valencia in Lalita on Friday Spurs against Manchester, united and severe. Take on Barcelona. Boys are now I say goodbye to you earlier, but I want you back in now just to talk about these cases we try, and in particular. You're looking forward to yeah. Well, that's. Fantastic week ahead had us on although I'm a fan of German as well I'm glad that they were no joined by the lakes. I must say that the. United the marie-noelle against sold shot at a what a great game that as we've seen already, Marino stopped with his usual side. Show Satnam. Then when say while while. A game will will bring us. which showed will bring us some great stories whatever happened in that game well, it's interesting, obviously yesterday. You talked about those mind games. To Marino apparently was saying that song shy is very much out of is debt it's. Theory that you've have Craig's since he was hired. This is a fascinating nine game stretch frame, isn't it as to whether or not, you can close that gap from Chelsea. Make into the Champions League and maybe proved some of his Dallas like yourself wrong. Well. There's there's no doubt. All the the job because he was a former month's. Flare rather than has resume. As a manager for not being said before the lockdown, they were starting to find the feet. I like two that taught them. We're really looking at the were were running and quicksand, because they will not playing well, so it's going to be interesting to see how the fortunes of these clubs. Start up against when this league restarts, the bottom line, is that old fighting for talk four and that will all Komo and the wash. No source got himself has been quite vocal about plays. An somebody might still want to go the address them and whatnot and whatnot, but oh come down a results Marino himself has been a seemingly filtering out. He doesn't say so. SCOUSE up for the task I. Don't think. Source of trip. Not It'd be looking Ero-. Marino's no zenit. Marino couldn't get the job done themselves. Man United, and it's not really as business know whether somebody else can get the job done it's. Now to get taught in into. That taught for Mauricio Pochettino odd. Is time for your boys, isn't it? Yeah, no more excuses, the bad apples. They're all over inter players back from injury grassroot good play, Palmer of course in the lineup as well three points out differences to Chelsea nine games to go. You got to play the likes of Spurs chef united again and also less as well. So shot doesn't get this done. You've really got a question whether or not. It's the right man for the job. Are the manager of Manchester United. If you can't put into the top four, that is a trouble I. was there one of while I was there at the last Champions League game of Manchester. United, gun marine us, Avia and lab was dead on what day needed at that time was to someone to come in would have fit the positivity sometimes I think he's underestimated. Which managed you? You've come after because if you have a kind of marie-noelle manager tight with under cloud based like. So negative everything in and around the globe was negative. At that time you needed like a guy like sold general, of course that game in Paris, when a knocked out these G., that was token about Rashford, and decisive at penalty there, but denny to get into top four and we, we have to wait some weeks now to see the hearing of Manchester City of they will be maybe talk. Five could be enough but for. For me, all about chef united getting in there, and then matches united can do stuff, but I think Marino. Yes, job on his hand at to moment to show that he's not a manager of yesterday and I'm saying that quite bluntly because I. I saw the Champions League game again I'll be life sees. That was terrible. That was terrible to watch a Yoyo Hewlett Nagas man. Showing Room Renewal was new modern today. about. Spurs aren't as big club though as Manchester United and people say oh. Why are you always talk so negatively about united on this show? The reason we talk about them so much is because there's such a huge club around the world buying. Munich Madrid Barcelona. PSG All of these teams. Are about success. We're talking about success now for Manchester United in terms of just finishing in the top four. That's why we talk, and we put microscopes Oh focused on all gonna sold Shah, and that's why we do it, because it's almost the trophy now you're not finished top four and the thing is that even if he doesn't people will say look. He's turning this club around the ships going in the right direction. How the evidence! I don't get it. Well often if they finish in Europe, elite might be some questions. Austin the certainly should be. An hour, maybe not even in Europe Lico knows lesson gets them into the top four as a big F because as congested and chef. United Gaming Hunt Wolves around the hell knows what's going to happen. We're taught them. Chelsea are still fighting. It's also play for if he gets them in a buys himself a multi time with the board West the owners Edward where they may goal because of this pandemic and the financial implications. Implications the immediate. Push the ball a bit more if he doesn't. The could cold his head, because Manchester United cannot afford to be outside of European Phil. That's the foster for them. The next step and asked to come. Quake is to be challenging, say and Liverpool again that's the only thing that's going to be good enough for this club, and that's a big pressure on SOC card, but as I, said in fairness to him. For all the criticisms hard, and I've been one of them. They were much better before this lockdown however. That's gone now as the restart button and we just don't know what we're going to get from them. And I agree on solemn. Tottenham done absolutely embarrassment to watch just before this lockdown I mean they went from been selke football albeit struggling and end on the project Tino to that dull and Boring Marino. We managed to manage it and just a few months. Was Dumb. Awful and he's going to. He's got nothing. These players without talking about only gonNA SCO scar. He's good enough of these play trying to make his team at least attractive to watch first and foremost. If all doesn't get taught for this time. It could be because they're like Craig saying this is a global brand is global football club? Sometimes people are annoyed that talking about this global brand, but it also expectation to that. Being one of the people in and around Sir Alex Ferguson. She knows that showed Alex Ferguson said it was a bad cease of Manchester United being second interleague, so of course monsters united to be be talked for. You always have to ask yourself. What's what is the club? It's all about if if you have an ed wood, says it's OK. Get I have a manager that I can kind of corporate well with I. Don't need that kind of your type of manager. Then he can get another season even outside top floor, but I think that. Is Like Colosseum is old times is there is a crowd and decide to faith of the gladiators have to win games you have to get drove and choke floor is not a trophy for club like Manchester United Porpoise back of course Craig. Saying all that can you know? Bryn Fernandez and poke the plan same starting eleven. Of course they can call this, not even at the pain. Yeah Paul Pogba played in some of the best teams in the world, including country have won the World Cup, so he's flexible. As mandated, so it comes down to the manager. It's a basic thing that's my management now. Polk was fitness since since the layoff. He didn't play always. Holiday played the toll for months before that. and WHO source Ker sees it? Let listen then the. Only, GONNA source car won't be judged in one and he plays doesn't play Paul Pogba. It'd be judged on whether to get some. Football it'll be judged if you're bridges. The gap and the enter the boys at the talk. With the League, he's not gonNA. Be just whether poke plays a not. It's a saint. Show a site story and all the. And Lens if money united lose if my united a winning games and they're going to get it, not talk for I. Don't think the United Fund. Planet will give stuff. POGBA plays a not because that's not the end result for goodness Oscar and he'll. Imagine what he thinks. Right to get the result. It's a big cool though, isn't it? Yan Report suggesting that Papa will not start in that game away against those. We think is fair. Because you want to build wave, you had before the the lockdown and I think that in modern football, but whatever that means I, mean the numbers when I when I grew up in Norway with all about four, five, one, four, four two. If you see the great teams today, you're not. You're not talking about via Munich and you got no idea how they play. I mean they will fit them in there, and whether you need to win football games if you win a game without pull pug by. They were saying that a Laguna soldier is a great leader can still do it. It is as a good manager because he can manage dudek without is maybe there's only world star on the other. If he loses as would say. Why didn't you find a way to get published by there? I think it's all down to Paul, but try to find himself. He's been out for a long long time. It's time to me to show up. It's time for him. And I said that yesterday on say to game time to get out to this Tattoo hairdressing kind of show and try to be a football player. He's the reigning world. Champion tried to be like one on the Patriots well. Shortly as a coach crates, it's up to social to play him as an answer to try and get it system to work because poor pauper. Plan well, it's up to social. Get results, and and that's what he's paid to do. He's not paid to commended mollycoddle player. I get you want a few saint, some dilemma and monitor. He's been saying for an. Appeal him. Of course your your ownership would want to see value for money, but then the day. The manager leads dies by teems selects, and the results he guest, and if he feels, is getting more of other players at this moment and team. And we don't know what's been going on behind the scenes because we haven't been watching any team in the primarily. For three months. Would you know? In, the wash done as Yan, said, if setting on his backside and united illusion, the headlines of POGBA settling his backside and united a winning. Source Gatto. Brush it off and say I'm doing what's right for the. Simple really boys, thank you very much in Donc is written about the return of the league focusing on every single side and what the next few weeks into them. A somewhat disappointing result fisa via on Monday in our league, they could only manage a one one draw against ullivan's ain't meaning four points clear of rail soc died in fourth, meanwhile Barcelona to clear after this weekend's action of Real Madrid boss minor in action again then on Tuesday, taking on leg and congressman once again expected to start you take a look at some all sins ratings from bosses opening match a six. Gives career six pulsa so far he set the end though still very much in support of French International. Saint Greenland is indisputable. He's played practically all games. He'll continue to play a leading role. He's an important Playa Juliana Ron. Speaking on the garbage jobs podcast, son get worried. I'm be worried about Greece enough to say. He said he was black as he was a training was this then he produces gambler this which I don't think the others help. But I don't think he's helping himself either I. Just don't know what the answer is I don't know what. The problem is but I don't know how you fix the problem. Maybe he's just not suited to play for the team and maybe bloody defend too much either. Check an alley Moreno with us. Allies this really a big surprise that grease men can play alongside messy. No I don't I. Don't think it's a surprise, but what I think it's surprising is how little impact he has on the game, and how very much his participation in the game is about running around with really having no, no, no real participation in the build of owning the final third or in creating chances are actually been the guy putting the final touch. I don't fall Greece in the sense that he's running around. He is busy. He's lively. He's working hard. He's defending, but if I'm looking at somebody to do sort of hard work and running around and the chase in that looks more like Martin Braithwaite Than Antoine Greece man. When you bring a guy like Greece, man, you are expecting. A game changer somebody who can play off Orleans messy and can resolve a situation for you whenever Leon Messy is not having a good game or whenever Barcelona needs a different angle or somebody else different to step into a position in which they can scored a goal on their own, but that's not untung agreement with one of we see him floating around in and out of spaces underneath at why not really central all the time? And all sorts of different precisions and doing a whole whole lot of running a whole lot of work, but none of it is really effective, none of this really efficient and to be honest with you. You expect a whole lot more from guy who came in with the soda resume that he did. If it is breakaway, running around and doing the hard work and chasing uncovering and score Nicole here and there you said well. Yeah, that's what you expect from our break, but you expect a whole lot more from Anton Grace. It's just not happening yet. That's the key word. Isn't it expectations? Unless now I'll. Disagreed with Alli in that I thought. Reasonably be a whole lot better. I expected so much more on the old cliche is good. Players find a way to play together. I don't think before arrived. In Barcelona anybody question onto agreement was a good player, and especially given the difference in his rules, Biological Madrid and for France and yet still how he was able to adapt and continue to have meaningful impact for both of those the highest levels I thought. Slot in all be different alongside Leila mess. Rule at Barcelona but I didn't. I didn't anticipate these struggles. It's been largely disappointing and the big question is. Where do you go from here for Antoine? Grease? Much I'm not sure anybody picks him up the kind of money he's on. And, it's just not working and I i. don't see it in your own either how to set and fix it, Allie. While it's difficult for tickets at the end, because when you see a sequence of play like you've in in the first half where Greece, but maybe even in the second half early on when there is a break opportunity in which he's in a one B, one situation discount, take on the defender spacing behind. He would go on one. Show us what you God, and then he takes a touch back then touch back. Back in touch back and then stars passing the ball I was then you start saying wait a minute is is this a? Is this a tactical thing? Is this a what he's doing out on the feeling? What position best suits him within. Barcelona is something that keeps us at the Lincoln Cage. Or is this something where the player does? Send really know what is role is Dawson. Really know where he fits and. And, because he is unsure uncertain as to where he fits in been, the confidence goes down, and then you see a player that is more than comfortable, just taken a touch back and recycling the ball, and then doing run the running, and covering defensively that you expect from other players, but not from a guy that supposed to be a difference maker for him to find author so GEICO's at the end Gan slot. Slot him wherever he to, but I think on twin agreement has to find his own role in his own place, and his level of comfort so that he can provide the best version of himself. We haven't seen anywhere near that from Grayson awards, Alana Chat. We can little, aren't we bassir with a comfortable win against your same for reality particularly could pass off performance against ball on Sunday. Who impressed you the most? Right, right no boss Luna. Real Madrid and I guess he. was as you would expect. The only surprising thing for premier in that game was how open. To the contract which? Give Real Madrid Doug. I, thought pretty ridiculous from from from their ruined approach, but boss with with a mediocre and comfortable, and I'll be right to point out this. Volunteer on Grease Monier you look at the scoreline and Ambassador Position not for me, the the more impressive in a week in a weekend that you're not quite sure what to expect given the fact that it's the first game off the. Alley. Is this a situation Real Madrid in that they have to win every game between now and the end of the season to catch bacelona. More than likely. That's the case Dan I I see C. A team that has to be perfect and Barcelona. I think they have to be perfect themselves. I just find that that both teams are GonNa have difficulties maintaining a level of play, and they're gonNA. Need a break here. UNBEAR-. Because of the heavy heavy that they have coming up and I just don't see. Rotation happened in an anti-gay bid some of that over the weekend in an taken players out and giving a breakthrough schedule. Because well now you have to look at gone dead. Dead. They've been on so on and so forth the Game Ski Common, and you have to keep getting three points important thing. I think for Barcelona. Is that over the next couple of games? They're going to be first to play, and so he is going to be staring. Whatever resold by CELONA has put up so if you're BARSCELONA and you're able to hold, sir, you get your three points. Points in Bat puts a lot more pressing around the date having to deliver I surrounded I'll say this. You're expecting. AIDEN has there's GonNa. Come good at some point. And while he had some moments again save. Are we still have seen at some of the same struggles that we see went onto increasement so the most consistent player in the attack? That reality has had over the course really over. Over the last couple years continues to be cutting Benson and that's the only by the goody, the guy that keeps delivering good performances and Ram other just kind of riding Benz and see what he doesn't define author, but hoping that they're going to get a game changing performance at some point from in Hazar. That's yet to happen like Greece brass aluminum boys. Thank you very much more from. SHOCKER available over and all Youtube Channel is that the guests they fall extra time.

However, yes, if you are in the Front Office Lana now you have to have a short list of players that should come in and fill that gap at some point sooner rather than later you want to jump ahead of the curve rather than being behind the curve, and so on dissipating Wensley, side is GonNa stop scoring goals for you with consistency.

Who's to Blame: Pogba or Solskjaer?

"Welcoming delays edition of espn afc. Thomas shirt guy coffee will be to the gates. Some of the big champions league matches this week. We'll start in the premier league and wasn't impressive. Victory for less the city thrashing lead united by full goals until one puts up to second in the table. Judy on and stevie nickel with us. Stay unless the win the league. Ooh i don't think so. Listen when the floor and the movements gray and on these on these game than they can create and score goals. No question Just i'm not sure that they could be as consistent for the whole season. Yes to go quality. Yes the good to watch I just don't think they can sustain it for the whole year What's the where they didn't last year. You know This time at this time in the last sees liberal absolutely fly in the peter off the fellow fair. Juba cleft saw Unless that changes Which won't know until the end of the year. I'm not ready to say they can hold on for the whole season. This is an impressive display from the one that joe's really good. I mean the the where leads are playing suited them again a bit from like we saw some games are already season for example but they. They were very impressive grades. I thought motors coaching. When certain jiang came on pay dolph obviously and yeah it was. It was really good. I would agree with tv. I still thing that they can. If they january this in the title then i would go and maybe by a couple of players that can make a difference in the second half of this like last season and then they will have ended debugged. They will have to back as well and then be even stronger than they are now. So if by january very merchandise race i think they can still dream whetted leads get it wrong. Stevie today leisure leisure gist. Let's be honest. In my opinion lets you can get a bump that scored a hat trick last show. But he's not he's not a regular goalscorer for me. He's not going to be one of the best strikers in and the premier league And leaks need somebody who will consistently put the ball in the pocket of the net for For gold so they need some day they can come on and i don't think they have in the body. Yes they get the ball in the box a lot. But i mean even today other than the chance rate at the very start the game before lester went one off i think it was two minutes and bamford ahead but even the golden goal was a was a cross that feed it. Everybody went and i don't see them scoring enough goals. I'm sure let's center attention to apple traffic. Glad you're on joel's even though you are very late and joining us today. You were obviously atma game. I'm intrigued sorry. You not really. What's vibe there was for that first half because what struck everybody watching. I'm sure our home is about how flat that performance was for manchester united in the stadium. And you could hear you could hear everything of course because there was no fans and there was much coming from oregon assaults. You're either and and i just. I just thought that technically autism just outplayed them but like it happens sometimes. Very tactically against shia slap secrets to niagara someone who are two very managers as when the on sunday he just got it wrong. It was very hard to see what the plan was what the tactics were even the formation wise. He looks like when we when we play at school in the playground. And you pick a team and then you basically give the ball to the best player on team and hope that he does something good. That's why he was. And that was just not good enough against the team. And i was very structured than you exactly what to do with proper patterns of play not like united united never did three parties together going forwards that one chance because they took a frigate quickly and then rushed for two hundred wonderful parts for and it and i just. I don't think that's good enough. Stevie what struck you from this game. That poll liability as a as a defensive midfielder. He's we know he's call is can be when he's going forward when he's he's driving all these quick to point after the leipzig game. You know when he's driving at the opposition and he's playing these policies and the unfortunately every time it comes to him and the defensive side of the game is an absolute liability and he gave the penalty away because he doesn't really know what he's doing as defensive class so the colon domini a- as as paul pogba. We said before the game. That we didn't think i did the poco we play. You know you just three grit results in the detroit newcastle. Psg and then you change it so he can play polka and then he ends up costing you so listen to the money just choice in the you got it wrong. By picking up. Josie spoke to parker after the game. Play the music starts. It was the best player in that game for now until radford came on and and and these the hud drake so he was up four. And i liked. The fi came out after the game. And you didn't have to come and speak to me on He did he explain what happens. You also spoke to to the premier league. I think into the bbc to explain. Put his hand up and rightly so saying this is my mom mistake responsibility. I made that foul. I gave it been onto your way Should i should. I should have been better in the game anyway. Canady also plan was to block and bruno fernandez and we couldn't find a solution to to to to find the space and to find more freedom to have an impact on again because ninian party were owners. Especially the first half the time i like. I like that. Of course he's right. He should have the more. I don't think. I don't think he's easier for him or easy for him. When is not a plan around him. There's no planned like. There was against leipzig august for example. I think he's hard for him. But also for bruno fernandez when as we've been saying tactically all over the place and i just don't think he hopes when you play on the left hand side over three four two three one formation. I don't think the helps mature. But i will always defend him as you know. I'm a bit biased. Because your wet. And i agree with you steve. He didn't do enough in the game. Just not so. He's had by the lack of tactics in that team at the moment in in some of the millions for sure. If you're only then how do you do it. Howdy fix it gills. How do you make plug for the best. He can be what we are. Though was the way forward you can play with to with bruno. And pretend. and then. You've got three midfielders. Behind you've got fred mcdowell. Menial who maybe there'd be more than you've got plugged on the left hand side was so good that you've entered in a midfield three days. Where when you minimize little bit the workday yesterday defensively certainly around your box like we saw against us nor because he lacks. Tv said wryly. He's not he's not very good at that but at least you get him the freedom to go forward on the left and size with the board in midfield three and i think that's where he is best and you. You can pay. I really thought he was going to play against is not a complete mishmash. And that's how. I think you could help him for him to play well. He has to be fully physically. And i'm not so he's just yet he was the covid. He had log injury last season. And i think he has to be right mentally as well to give the the best. I can lock against live. Seek against arsenal roy. Keane went viral with his rant. After the game. Steve very critical of the players. We've heard other former manchester united players as well critical of the current squad whilst a lot of them seem to evolve absolve. Soc of any sort of responsibility is that fair. No actually not listen. What ki- whe- keen said is. How disagree we because as a player a part of your responsibility as to be ready for the for the goal self-motivation which which roy's always on up. He's always on a boat. Don't tell me to do this do that. Well unfortunately people like roy keane playing the game anymore and saw one hundred percent all these only responsibility also is to make sure. Listen as a coach. Sometimes you can smell the dressing rooms flop before again and it's part of your job to be able to figure that out and so clearly only couldn't figure that nice that in my opinion is don't generally experience and spend time with your plans and no year plays in say no no what the thinking and how the behave and how what is normal. You know triple plays like normal and that means we. That's why we get ready same same every week on a rape. Burt fox is normal. Has job is to spot where it's not normal and he didn't do and that's lack of experience so he has to take responsibility for that as well tools. How different would the rhetoric around. Only gonna socia- if lauren blank exactly the same results. The united because belong played played for united as well as what a sorta now for as many years. So maybe we take someone who is not up from that united way. And i've been there before. I think you'll be completely different. But socially the has some great games in those hundred games. Diehard in charge of united baby had some terrible ones where he looked clueless and he's team group clueless. And that's why. I don't get it and i said to poke by the end. How can you explain the contrast. How can you be so good against live. Seek on wednesday and so bad on the sunday for nothing and we had the answer. I'm not sure. And i don't think social new either mike phelan knows. I don't think. I don't think people at the club. No and the rest of the squad either. Because it's really hard to get you hate around. How can you get a so right at times and so wrong other times and lack of motivation like stevie explaining certain games maybe but the coosa pines game was dire the tottenham game was horrible even the chelsea game last weekend the weekend before was just okay when they was just not far from rochford on his own and again we go back to this game. Plan was the tactics. Is it to give the ball to play and see what happens. Certainly look like that. In the premier league this season so much in europe in the family. And i just i just don't don't know what's what's happening. Why have the blockage in the premier league and why they just can't do it like they do in europe this season last night on tv. All the good shows yards is the luckiest mine alive. There's no funds in the stadium because if the work he would begin absolutely slaughtered by manipulated funds. So listen to fight it the everybody above all the light some And nothing's going to happen to them. Well then in charge there was there were supporters and the stadium. He would be absolutely getting crucified because when a games finished. You don't have to look good. You don't have to look at the media. You don't have to go on to a one inch to you'd have to do. You can kind of kick in your cell and this we thing of you know with the players and the club and everything else. But you can't hide when the crowd and seventy thousand people that traveled in your rotten. So he's looking right now steve impression. You named all those social media ads that's it. Thank you very much guys. Just remind you take a look at abutment. Premier league manchester united very much at the wrong end tyranny. Fifteen in table. Hi there this.

She said in the group stages of the champions league which it against into milan certainly the standout before we get focused. Shall we on lanza against liverpool livable. Of course going into the tie having won both of their opening matches guy. Markazi joins us as the stevie nichols stevie considering. It's much too city at the weekend. How you approach his game if you liverpool. Who took for. I guess i guess i i believe both atalanta little. We're going qualify for this group comfortably and show. That means that if your clock and you say coming up you can afford not to put your first team. Oh i mean the other. Say that has no. I would suggest that liverpool should be thinking about somehow battened down a lane and stuck in with it so i i don't think phillips is available for this game so that means reese williams going to have to commend in play so i would suggest that you play your proper late You can make changes muddle the park and upfront but i think you have to get the bike lane played together and as i said well. There's a role automatically you get some cohesion gone. So definitely your proper defenders but as far as the game. I don't think it's hugely important for either site. I don't believe i actually maitland. Can qualify from muscat that gap from atlanta. Nice time to play liverpool. Yeah obviously a good time to play. Liverpool given view injuries that are there from van dyke to to for being yo to jaguar. Contra joe tepe and navigate are obviously coming back as well but They've started training again. But i don't know that would would risk them for the first minute. He wants all his options for the game at the ending and city The club's record. Emily against syria clubs isn't good. So if you're superstitious there might make you think over the two legs. But i think in general. If you're out there that you've had your ups and downs stood there they'll go go students robertson's as is day to day to room definitely out the beyond that they're gonna put out a pretty a pretty competitive team. Romero fit As well and they love the idea of taking three points off for liverpool at this stage meanwhile ramjet against some and was always going to be a big tie when you took the jaw. It's an even bigger tie gavin. You looking at how both teams have started. Well not started this qualification process. Nobody was expecting. I think this current table in the group. I think what's tricky for for inter. Obviously there's no kakudi. The indication is that going is going to play. Yvonne peres h was allowed to the front because alexa sanchez. Only has one trading session under his belt that did not work great weekend against a against panama For madrid perspective. Obviously they're coming off the big win at the weekend You've got you've got the lift from the fact that you can hazard started scored a great goal If you keep them safe. I think anything like what you player. He was supposed to be when he joined. I think all of a sudden things really look up for for I'm because you've got the option of the frontier you can play the front three So from madrid's perspective. You know this is a good time. And i think saddam will feel that he's in a good place as long as if they deliver the result. Here that's so incredibly inconsistent and the moment majority steamy. That's the issue. Well the good thing is. I mean look at the game and all about momentum real madrid get hustle back When the classical the get has a box scores are fantastic goal. And they're on the up and enter the acts absolutely the opposite. They lose the man. That really has mr renter rain known. That's lukaku so you got one team going one way and the other one gone go the opposite way so as just remembered of being. I just don't see milan. Beaten real madrid could be a draw as possible to be a draw to milan in. You're going to argue that no inconsistent. I actually think. I know we disagree on this. I thought they played while the classic aren't great. But whatever but in between the gladbach king yeah they need those two late goals and certainly in terms of results. They weren't consistent. But i thought they actually played really well In in that game as well so they're developing at least over the over the span of three games. I think they're certainly developing a little bit more of a concern glovebox. You need a late late weena down again. You can play. Created more chances. I'm sorry not a result. I'm about performances for that. This is football. It's going game sometimes. You can play really well and need a last minute. Equaliser equalised stevie doesn't think entering and get anything from this. Do you agree. I doubt if they the the problem with inter is that when kaku is there then everything falls into place. Not because we'll koku carries the team but because contest patterns patterns of play they become effective lukaku as the right movement. Shields the ball up. He lays it off when new kaku who is a big strong tall man is replaced by yvonne peres. Sensu is a smaller thinner with different qualities. a center forward everything changes and it becomes a case of individuals. Scientists have a lot of good players you saw at the weekend. You know whether it's erin brockovich locked at all academy me. All these guys can can do things individually but they no longer are. What don't want them to be. Which is a collective they no longer the same patterns of play and it becomes a lot tougher for them to get the job done. Let alone against topside likely like madrid. Thanks very much to remind.

Keller and steve toronto with us steve. Let's start with you bruce. Your fans of being in this position before going into a game that maybe they felt that they could get something from the defending champions as anything change and you give them some hope to suggest that maybe this time is their time. I do think so. I think things are different this year. For bruce your dorm. And i think the habit chance and i think we've seen a good example of that this year byrom unions softened time by administer offense is beatable and the have weaknesses and especially on the counter-attack i think and i know lucy papa and his coach. David done their homework and they've looked into this. The way to beat fire. Munich is just a lot of hard work spending. This disrupting their build up. Play stressing those defenders not letting them get into a rhythm and then on the other side after you've wanted the ball Getting good positions your forwards floating underneath the back. Four and counterattacking this by defense. That's the way to beat them. How'd you do it mentally going into it from a dortmund. Because we know case their young. That's the facts. And that's that been exploited before in the past. How'd you get over that obstacle coming up against the big bullies if you like of buying who. There's no question. That byron has the advantage on experience. Not only just from probably the player standpoint but from just all the success they've had and champions league wins in on that side of it now yes. Energy is going to be important. As steve mentioned in if dormant are going to get a result of this it's gonna come from a tremendous amount of hard work. My question mark is on dortmund's athleticism in the back is can they contain byron's attack. I agree with steve. That i think byron's defense can be exploited but i also think dortmund's defense can be exploited so it is it's gonna take a herculean effort for dortmund to to win this match but i do believe it's possible but i think byron is still the favourite. Meanwhile surprising news coming out from buying it surprising. Steve is the most how public this has now become. Which roaring that contract offer Diarrhea laba he will be free to go to leave the club at the end of the season surprise considering he is arguably one of the best defenders in europe. It's come to this. I'm very surprised. I think even more surprised alba. I think that In his previous contract extensions the club and himself having never waited this long to get a contract signed so it was very surprising to all parties and You know. I think. I think byron at the end of the day really have to take their their offer off the table to save face and situation and unfortunately now there are no winners in the situation Only time will tell if allah will be winning the end. 'cause i'm sure there will be some clotheslining term but we are in a new situation The world of football is still Also feeling the effects of covid nineteen so But i'm almost positive for these top players. Top notch players willie offers on the table for alabama. And i think in the end he'll be happy but for me a one club man. I would have loved to see him. Stay a few more years. If i never tire byron who's been very special and important to them. And i know here in his voice in the last interviews. I think he would like to say as well. It's incredible casey when you think of it. Twenty eight years of age and the contract at the end of the season. I think you can make an argument. He could walk into any team in europe. He is holding all the cards. Isn't he going into contract negotiations with whoever it may be well. Yeah that's the key in from a guy that played for a lot of clubs. I understand the The the lure of of maybe having a a new environment and a new challenge in and possibly well it would most likely be a new league. Because i can't imagine any other bundesliga side be able to to pay what biron would so. Yes he's going to have options. There's no question about that. And and and the question. Mark is is byron. His has said look. This is more or less our best and final offer if you're not interested and he's obviously shown that he's not interested that they're going to win that offer and say well we have a structure at this club and if you're not willing to work within that structure then as much as we like you as as great as a player as you are. You're not bigger than the club and now the question is does is allah going to have the opportunities to play at a club that can pay somebody wants to to make and is it the right place for him and and only time will tell fascinating to see how this all plays out just reminding them is by munich brusca dormant this weekend. It is a game is live on. Espn plus with coverage. Starting at twelve pm eastern. Casey and steve still with us concert. And what went on regarding the us internationals over the weekend will saw unfortunately with bad news christian pulisic of course pulling out of the chelsea salts. You'll ever before kickoff. In their game suggestions. He could be out for four to six weeks with a hamstring injury. Casey this is unfortunately becoming too regular for the youngster. It's a shame because obviously we know what a great talent that christian is in a and he's he's shown that in the time that he's been able to stay fit for chelsea obviously. He did great for doormen. He got the big move. And then some managerial changes. And he had to really impress frank lampard and when he had the opportunity. He's done fantastically well. The problem is it's just been to stop start because of the injury issues. He's building back into fitness and then he kind of slipped in warm ups in and you saw the frustration is he was walking off the field and nobody feels feels worse than christian that he just hasn't been able to to continue the good work that he started at chelsea and we just all hope that he gets fit and then gets a great run in the side and continues to show just what a talent he is and the frustrating thing. It's such a competitive environment. Given the signings chelsea have made in the number of options that they had you want to continue to be banging on the door. And i imagine as a young player there much more of a frustrating thing to happen to you to have these continuous legally injuries. Not only that frustrating to the player but also frustrating to the coach. And i think for any coach from the coaches perspective You need players who can contribute consistently to your offensive game and christian. There are no questions behind his abilities. And his ability. Contribute regularly but They are question marks behind his his help over long term and so casey said That's the question for him now. Skinny string together a season and not only for because he's also us us national teams. Best player not only prescribe for his country as well can stay healthy and contribute on both heads. That would make her. Frankly part happy. And i know that would make a great burkhalter happy as well More positive news and from the us perspective shot getting his first. Go the bundesliga season and case i liked about. This is that he had time to think about it and didn't panic composed finish and he timed his run perfectly well Which is always important in in the old created some separation. And then you're right. You know you see so many times when you hear about a young striker and all you had to think about it too much. And therefore that put him up. No josh did really well with the in for a player that had been in a goal scoring drought now granted. He's in aside that he's not getting tons of chances. But still when you have an opportunity like that to to get a point out of the match and obviously vertebrae and are looking much more comfortable this season in a in a upper mid table then they were in that really really difficult dogfight at the bottom of the table last year where they stayed in the bundesliga by the skin of their teeth. And and the the more consistent josh can get just the better His career the better will be for frankfurt. Sorry for for vertebrae it'll be for again for that. Us national team. That is so desperately looking for that. That striker takeover from josie elttoer can become that number. Nine steve i believe he can. Josh has consistently gotten better which is a great sign and here in germany. He has won the trust of novice coach but also teammates and general media. And i think any situation where we're josh's maybe in a drought He will now get the benefit of the doubt. And casey can attest to this getting the benefit of the valve in germany. Who has an american or for that matter is not an easy task What i've seen in josh over the past couple years the steady increase Increase in is the velopment. Then and i think that is something that can he continue on. Not only here in bremen But often the us men's national team miserable in my opinion He will be the guy to replace. Josie altidore casey just go. We heard compensates is talking about him giving the goalkeeper. The is is really a thing Not really because. I'm so concentrated on what the on. What the balls doing. I can't really look at. Somebody's is i mean. I'll look at his body movement. I if you're if he kind of opens his body up and then able to put the ball in a different direction. That's more so. I think then his is But i understand the you know the reference. But it's it's more of a whole body shape then. I'm not focusing on the strikers is. I'm kind of have to keep my on the ball a little bit at that stage at finally. Let's head to mckinney. Of course involved in events is four one victory setting up. I of rome. Murata for the opening goal. Steve this when you look at the the you margin he'd be on he's way ahead of isn't he. Since moved to italy. I agree with you on a percent. He's ahead of the curve. And this is this is something. That's not only surprising to me pleasantly surprising. I think west is fantastic guy in your team. You need guys lot with mentality and that atlanticism and something that i think that Obviously event was looking for when they were when they were scouting him and acquired him in the question for me. Is you know. He's learning so much at play at this high level. Not only in training but on the weekends can he On that and apply that in this game and just going on athleticism and heart and and the plane at that high level of being around those great players isn't gonna isn't going to save him long-term so his ability really to learn from his experiences. And like i said to apply them in future performances Not only in club. But i country as well I think it's a huge opportunity for weston And i know him and the people around him Very excited about him taking this opportunity to run away with it. So it's an exciting prosper to watch something would have to follow very closely and it's an opportunity which he's taken. Casey surprise early on played well. He's continued after being out with covid. And that's the key thing. I imagine when you amongst all these big players with the all the on you. It's one thing being there day in day out and trading well but going and putting it on the pitch on a matchday make such a huge difference. And you're right you know. He jumped into the side pretty early. That people didn't really expect him to be in the lineup. And then you always miss them games and obviously miss him games with covert and but to comeback in in a game you know in. You'd expect you know in the games like spazio. The games the the smaller lineup said those are going to be the key opportunities against the smaller clubs for him to come in where. Maybe they're shifting some some players around because of their extensive schedule in the champions league and but those are particularly the games that you have to shine in and for him to be able to come in and make a great run forward very unselfishly squared off to mirada for the tap in a mean. It really was an excellent play and then then now. It's just building off of that now that you're done with the covid to be regularly either starting or being a contributing factor off the bench and it is. It's going to be a a fun season to watch. Steve said yes we know. He's a good athlete. We know he works hard. You know but being around Those players deigned in training in the competitions of champions league and syria his technical ability. You know catch up and we're gonna see it's it's great to see that he's contributing so early bringing stuff as always boys. Thank you very much. Well we'll be an action this week. Can you event is playing last year. That's the early game on sunday which is live on. Espn two at six fifteen am hi there. This is julie foudy host of the podcast laughter permitted. And i'm here to tell you about our sponsor ally first of all if you're still stuffing financial documents into a filing cabinet.

Prioritize employee safety with watson works a set of a infused capabilities. Let's put smart to work visit. Ibm dot com slash. Watson works to learn more shame cristiano out stealing the show their respective sides syria. This weekend. Renowned are coming off the bench to score a brace and evinces victory malls last time with the overhead. Kick winner against z. Stayed wish we saw you want to start with latin at thirty nine is it. Listen as you seem to keep reminding me down. When i said he would score tangles of more this season. I of informative for from the truth. I mean thirty considering they injury. He got mancha's united when he was thirty sex for for him to step on the field for three four years later. It'd be doing what he's doing absolutely insane. It's not normal. As i said i'm a frequent nature. This guy must have shown body because it's just not normal. Listen scored overhead kick. It should have been a freak if you asked me but the fact does is that a fifty nine year old leading team at the top. This are and they shouldn't be able to do that physically. Maybe mentally yes. The fact that he's able to do it physically is absolutely a stone. Coverage is a gang gab. Verona in italy agassi right now. Everybody celebrating him. Obviously he plays up to it. Easy and great with the quotes he says. I know i'm younger now than i was ten years ago. And it's all about the body and finely tuned machine and all this stuff. But i think people find him a lot more endearing. Today i think he's matured. I mean on the pitch. He plays a different role inside. These not all mimi. I mean that's just. The image gives off but he works at the team to i to others in ways that maybe didn't do in the past and i think you know people people have they can do that. It happens a lot when people were criticized. You're in their careers and wayne rooney or david beckham. When once they get old suddenly everybody likes them because you realize we might only have them for for a few more years and you know you look at ebay you know that the whole alpha male saying is yeah it's real but also he has fun with it and you know in the past. You weren't quite so sure about that former nowadays perspective. We discussed that yesterday with aaliyah nervous. Body everybody's different stevie but there is a thing you kind of feel like macy's got the world the ways of the world on his shoulders at the moment renowned just wants to play. Football is so excited to come on. You can see him wanting the bold and it just seems to be something that's ingrained within this childlike love for the school. Yeah i mean. I guess bows done. Two things. one has opportunity school goals. That is the only thing he thinks both and is interested in and putting the ball in the back of the neck gets to johnson against the disrespected to spezia. But he gets the chance to come on and take penalty kicks in and get a chance to score more goals. And why would you offer smile on your face. So this is. This again was perfect for him and feeder opposition. You know your team's gonna get cianci's and if your teams making cianci's and you've got an older they guess what the outcome's going to be. He's going to build disclosed sheet a lot more by the way from gab. Over on the gills podcast. You can check that out too and download that it is available. It's available now. That's it and that brings the today show. Thank you very much to everybody who joined us stay tuned. extra time is next jordan. Stevie you'll tweets welcome today's edition of extra time. Thanks always feel tweets jewish twenty five minutes late today. Wasn't he stephen. We were here making polite conversation. I can't believe you well. Truth hurts but we did learn during the twenty five minutes. That steve doesn't mean sean connery impressions. They've only all in a long shot. Put a judge might want It's very good. I like yeah. Tell us how donde fresher by the way. That's it stevie chilly questions. You've jersey on you. Don't put the The heating on. Yeh lucas tell on. You can just going to tell me he. I needed ralph lauren. By let me tell you. Special lovely keeps you all night on. Its saving just on the. Yeah yeah big time. It's freezing outside. Should vanek stevie. Do you believe that justice should be starting over for me. No or should plot by all four of his strike of his star attack is similar to what he did against. Sheffield not yet. no. I don't think i don't think the front three have and of them deserve not to start until the answer's no i did it try. He played them right on. Say to the middle. Three against sheffield them. I didn't quite work. Oh he's definitely going. Follow them as part of front three But i don't think. I don't think it is right yet to to make a change. What stevie think about the job gerard is rangers you same as klopp's eventual successor. Good job when he took over. Rangers were obsolete miles away from gannon near celtic He's quietly and steadily built up each ward as you know the the the quality in the squad. The your average player is way higher than it was Sure the no competing. Celtic to win the scottish premier league. I think still chocolate. The league So he's doing a fantastic job. No the leap from scores. Premier league to liverpool. I'm not saying that's not possible. Just seemed unlikely hub. I would assume that he would be best suited to come in and be an assistant or some that to begin with and then become the monitor. i'll show jet up because i'm sure haven't been the manager. That's all you want to be. You don't wanna be consistent. Yeah this is great when you have to make decisions So i think it be jump. Maybe maybe if he goes to a medal of table premier league citing and maybe has a couple of years there and then gets the liverpool job of course living full of stole top of the tree. Long answer another question for cv. 'cause joel's was late ignoring his questions. Stevie if you've got three tickets to see a champions thing which other two boys from the cost would you bring along mo- joe's obviously because he'd missed the first half me to watch a three of to certain watch again. Yes yet tonight. Ropel robot shop watched trump easley finding yes Taught him who would the last one be. They probably we don. You'd upon a really low veteran smile on your face. Turn revolted watching the game while these yet and then ask you. But i'll say the. Yeah no it would lot much. Yahoo i would. I would take you enroll. Thank you very much not to stevie. Espn goatee again. Going journey game steve. This stadium was you know the history of the ground before this was a stadium. I'm not really talking for stadium. Gab gab is a story about everything wherever you go it will be like. Oh you know the history of this break. It was nineteen seventy one by john bellingham. I wonder how what was showing those steamy. Espn fc showing. Mike version of terrier rave park instruction to players from montreal. It was entertaining but is it effective. I always told to coach during the week. Not during the game it depends depends. What you balking depends who you're barking up to know you'll have guys who will just all. You can do it now because there's no fans in the stadium. He's always easy just to give the old robbery and one them here and also you have to. You have to figure out decide whether the information is just so emotional wreck on the showtime and screaming out you for no particular reason yet So there's a combination of reasons why you would listen to couple. Why you would josie must. It must be more parents now when you into these stadiums and you can obviously hear everything. The managers that acquire and the others who are always talking. Yeah i it's fascinating to be fair to. Just look at them and listen to them and most of them talk a lot and shut lock club top head and sometimes what we saw from. Jerry for example is is very similar. Sometimes they said very simple things like you even hear our grassroots level for example. And sometimes you should be more complicated sometimes happy and they shoved and they shot more than you expect them to almost on a player and club. I always remember uh cantata for example one of these first games and it was like what but then the next minute it was. It was forgotten and then clubbed praise a great pasta. He did something. And that's i think that's what happens if you if you think that a manager should not talk during the game and some don't do too much of that. I still think that you know. Dust of the job of a manager i think. Do you have to guide them in game. There's something that applies see. You can see on the touchline that you all assistant in the who are higher than you can see and give feedback to the manager. Who don't get feedback through his players. So i think he's very important to have that kind of communication is just some more than others. Some shot louder than others. It depends the personalities. As well i guess. The dynamic liverpool opposite was running miranda who won screaming. Close the ball get by gail. Get say we get roads dude. Let's do and then and then the manager knowing again and with children whether we can your anybody else and show that that don't know whether it's because we've that that i thought was better with and margin listening a canny up fazli. I'll joel constantly screaming this screaming because eventually and again maybe either we were number one question you will start listening and eventually i would start affecting let me start affecting the relationship because somebody shoved screaming are constantly. You just get sick fed off of that. Yeah sick fed. You talk to talk to you. Some of the monster. He plays when ship fiercer used to drive them insane because it was just constant so it just chilled the game but then when he came off as it was just too much. That really intrigues me. Stevie shoe it pays played the highest level. How come he can't relate to that. I guess against each is it was passionate when he plays. And and i guess when he's on the sideline he's like he's re ball head and thin and he's doing this and doing i. I'm guessing kind of so it just it. Just probably count. Lp yeah and by the way again if you monitor and you stand up from ninety minutes and you're constantly pocket. i. I'm kind of the same issue on the something been messenger and the week before the get right. You shouldn't have to start from nine months until people with equal. Whitby what do i mean. I don't seem right to me. Should be trying to get paci chino as soon as possible for any other clubs such as psg madrid need in. Joel's good question. A really good question again if you think that swisher can take these team forwards to better than they did last season when they finished for example and went to the semifinals europe league and semifinal of of the for example juice juice do that. I'm not. I'm not convinced. I have to be honest despite some good performances along the what eighteen months almost two years. Now he's been in charge. I think particularly a better manager and again. No snow disrespect shorts. I think is a good budget. Put your tino could do a very good job dot club with some of the current squads but would improve that squats. And i think an improved players individually as well more than maybe kick. Can i think he's a very good debate. I don't think so. Share would be psyched anytime soon. But i think is still being free out than we saw him on here in the uk on television tonight and was clearly on television because he wants people to see him and say hey. You know. i'm here if you need the manager. I'm here that's why he was on television tonight. Otherwise you would have stayed home in london but no he was on television. And yeah i think We question what advice hedgerows look. Great they just he knows. The lockdown is coming second lockdown. No baba's he didn't have time and not think tonight's. I liked him very full beautiful. Joel how happy you'll friend name is looking to extend his contract with psg. How many more years have birthday parties to expect to be invited to. I'll believe it when i see it. I believe it when i see it. They obviously have talked with folk again. He's twenty eight so he's obviously closer to the end and to the beginning. How how many years do you give him more he wants. I think quite a lengthy new did so. He's in june twenty twenty two. He wants i think another four years on top of that. That's a long time. He's oversee on huge money. I don't think he's ready ticket. Pay cuts and rightly so but he finally doesn't for more money. Maybe that's doable somewhere. Let's not forget. I think he's more of a priority because of his age because defy that he's from pirates and other other reasons so i think if they could extend just one of the two will be more and bobby dot to choose probably the neymar but if they call keep bobby and extending. Nothing name was great and to keep him at the club. He's he's very complicated than i. Just don't think there's a quick answer to it. But i mean i'm here for more parties anyway. You know certainly not question. Who is the current favorite player in.

#387: Final Countdown

"Augustine hosing a show with your host dog use Gino's. took. Take The Tint. Tell US complexity exit Zingo show would meet your friend Agassi knows Inga and discipline number free eight, seven as free eight, seven of Yuccas knows English show with me, your host. Agostino, how's it going? How are you feeling? Great. Amazing. Good. How am I? Same Old same old hanging on dead wood, a glass of water and smile as a huge OFFICIA I. I'm checking out of the show view youtube make sure I i. like when he subscribed Alenia comment down below and if you're listening to podcasts, live nearby Sarvi down to show and Sarah would all your family and friends, and of course, you can also support the Chevy patron. You'll find links into description below as well as a pink comment on top of this video so. What's been occurring England played football. SOMEBODY FOR IN THE AFC People are dying houses on Phya. Has Been happening kids in university halls up being dosed of. You know levels of drugs due to this. Porridge ministration that we have going on in the government amendment lows of mass ups in going on as usual. This is your respite from all that nonsense a now of you know some. Internet cultural commentary from Your Shirley. So strap on shaping salute drink salvage enabling and less get in with the show so. I. A of an annoyance I guess in regard in terms of measures united, there's been this. There's a leak in the campaign appears like so many of the back of the six, one Las Vegas, which I haven't gone over to stuff in the club has Athena clubs moved on muffing nor really cares at the boardroom level for the most part you know there, they're a K. we bicycling Champions League for Boone and facing such lustrous names in clubs such as PSG and rebel. Leipzig. They care about that and what it means branded care about that, and what it means to marketing a possible in the potential of the encounter Benton's actually win a trophy they don't care. So it's no surprise that now the entire clubs in disarray we sent, you got manager who's underqualified and GonNa social to have the job in the first place. But you know he did a good job you got us to finish fourth. We even though because official fall even though we kind of cruel over the finishing line at the end and we only really finished in the top for Jitter ABA teams around us not being able to put together a sustained period of form in order to clinch their position but we did it doesn't matter how he did it. We did it So. When this average manager pulls out a pretty extraordinary result against a finish talk for you'd think the first one it will do is improve on that right trying. Correct rungs of the season by the season's just gone and try and make some kind of challenge or be a disruptor in a League Nolan's no night find is gonNA be. Naive enough to think Oh, Wigan to be able to challenge for the. League title in a couple of years. That's not GonNa Happen Right football comes in cycles. This is probably our cycle being shit. So we probably need to. Accept that Sudha. Robin. Later, but at least a team that can. Upset the odds you know that can a team of track that can be able to roughing the little bit. You know maybe sustain a good run of form that has us being top for half of the season. We can't afford fall of Tuesday and just give something to shout about notice betting us to win the lead to shower. So the board they have one job back in manager emmys targets, and then again we go and if anything if you think about it really from a purely selfish and self preservation point of view if you're somebody in the boardroom and you get your manager, the targets that they want, and then they still fail at the job you've literally got. or no one leg they can stand on. They've got no point of recourse. They've got nothing. They can say that they'd been agreed by nothing zero. As. Long as you give them ample time to perform. And get them to sign into they need if they don't perform within of course, a precursor of times you know maybe some terms you sow terms. Hey, you've got two seasons against back to hear or freeze into do this fair enough but if able to give them the targets and given the time and the space to do their work and they still fail, of course, move onto another coach. But the moment we've got early GonNa Sorak clean not capable of doing the job nothing supported and transfer market and having to play with the team that's made up of what free manages per players. You Got Marino plays and you still got a couple maybe do you have any place van Gogh erupts saw plays say. Maybe a few leftover for David Moyes Russell like what matter? Right? He's one that's probably stood around. He's having to kind of Amino. So of workum into seeming doormat hasn't played in a while but still you'd think they tried to put it on. And I'm a now social position where he's having to pick plays he cleaned him by you know we can see. As been proven with the lack of first team opportunities that benedict has been given the I seem he clearly wasn't an elegant social by he clearly was a by. Initiate by whoever's in charge of the football transfers that club in a moment is not for what? Is Not, acceptable is just whoever's in charge of it whichever one of Edward's friends Gisar between to do their job book, of Bunny, Vanderbeek and probably ended up buying some gala right Social Guanaco. What's his face locale? Morrison who's the ever dude up on one at just king who previously worked with all he's got some connections with duties. Agent is scanty connection day didn't get him. So we got Odeon Negara. So it's no surprise now that these stories are leaky nine press and this is from the United Report says the following an unnamed Magid, united staf matchday they start from defend his time against Tottenham as you as you're aware we were losing what was it for one? Was it four new actually at the half time? Something she four one or something sheep at. Halftime down to ten men and just playing horrible football not going anywhere and of course, you know none of the team looked like they were really given a share about the loss dissolve like taken in stride not knowing how to react and them. The only person that seemed to be really agreed by was Bruno Fernandes and evidently so as we continue as you said. But if an end is late into his teammates, accused him of knob holding the proud nationwide he kept yelling with supposed to be mentioned united. This should not be happening. And as true, it shouldn't be happening. But, again, we're a team full of loses managed by loser and of course, run by absolute loses. So we'RE GONNA get loser results. It continues unnamed mentioned Nice Smash Day Staf said it was clear that the manager also came under fire. You was going on about the tactics they will ever raise voices but his was the one which seemed to carry the main force. So that rumor was true I remember when the Matte Finish and we saw even when the teams came second second half and we didn't see match Auburn offenders everyone kind of assumed they go into a change room and now you know we've been led correct. bruhns public intimated for not covering defenders and it will socio speaking about tactics which you know he's obviously not in any way shape or form in a position to do so Bruno Fernandes probably then pulled him up on his own and said, hey, you probably out the runway. And of course, him being the manager here to kind of you know put his foot down decided to hold up a half time but this was obvious it. This is bound to happen the moment the glaziers or Edward decided not to back on the Social Chiampou market. This is what we're GonNa get always going to get this version of united and as much as I don't like early social as much as I. Think he's a terrible coach as much as I think, you probably won't have another job in a premier league again after he's fired by night. I still think he is owed always is at least underwrite to attempt to try and get us forever table with his players. This go around just because of what don last season now, someone to be some people can say all wasn't here. Actually it was a players. Cool. Whatever you sold the person steering a ship if he was in charge and he feels a one thous in. In the captaincy in terms of Guinness over the nine and we did it, we did it doesn't matter how he did it. We did it don't get me wrong was vintage united. No, was it probably you know Was Probably. Depression inducing football. Yes. Very much but we did it. We achieved it. We go back into. Champions League. Head of some other teams who probably from. April. Go in there. Also being a big example. So why not give the place he wants, and again if he doesn't do a good job ready made excuse to give it. gave him the time given the players and he didn't do what was needed now you go but instead they don't do that. And now we're going back to square one. Supposedly being linked to Musha Patino this another report here from again from a united police, his motion I had a mind for damage. Tina will not be available forever he's also has admired at my city so you can imagine the tug of war going on at the moment right mentioned see are on a bit of a weird. Former the moment people questioned whether Lapaglia that can recreate imagine Ansi Kenny I'm at some point, be able to put together a coherent organ, a functional defense that doesn't require him to spend excess of was a billion something closer billion on defenders Kenny Duda and if so and if he can't there may be getting manager and UNI managers out that moment hookah public do their job especially in England would be Musha Pochettino. You could actually trust to play a particular brand of football you know to give you a chance. To improved players I available word yet the team doesn't many manager could do and unfortunately again Fawley incident pollution where there's already made replacement out there who's much better coast and him right there's no denying that especially considering the fact that always been a game for a decade or more right liberty chief that much. As. Regarded, of course, he's GONNA WANNA. Leave title, which is more than what Patina can say but when go Lee Tartu Moda and keeping Southampton in the Premier League are probably comparible at Saint regard but site that's going to be pressured idol think social can handle and with the next five games that we have come up with a moment right I think I checked earlier this a mad games united playing absolutely mad games I don't actually see this ever GonNa. Survive. So. This month might be the last month that we see social doug tonight and ounce. He think he has no one to blame. But himself no one anywhere by himself. So. Let me get back from the international break what we have here. This is from Google. Right this is correct. So we nutritional break we face home I. Got The associated. With facing Nukus pass away from home. Then we've got price Ngoma and Champions League away from home then we're back. Permanently we're facing New Jersey at home. So you Newcastle Person German. Chelsea. Rebelled light sake and arsenal are the five game that he's playing and in it makes sense that they would probably get rid of him here. Just when you know probably fall till, we have a bad run of games and then whoever the new manager is much off the asked Noah against the tech assume withdrawn with a in the Champions League away to Everton at hunt, West Brom then away again to the Turkish team and in back away Adamson Hampton a far better run of results Faubert run of Matt of. Game. Managed night then come into measure nate against Newcastle passenger and Chelsea rebel light seek an awesome again, scummy move by the board I. Think if if this doesn't get fired, then there is an argument we said it's not an argument and there is definitely some to be had there in terms of Edward. Also losing his job. If you sack all you have to get rid of it would would he's resided of a what free fall is a free now free field managers in Van Gombe Arena Gno and only he can say, Hey, do most of my pick because essentially. As. Some got him that job. But let's go from death from Moi's onwards, right Van Gogh Marine you an only social will all edited appointees. They will own given the framework of the structure necessary for them, and again that's funny thing is offering manages especially in these cases, we would probably imagine Ali was really resistant to having Eric Traffic. That's why we didn't get it in the end. I can imagine him being a little bit about it and saying, Hey, I would I trust in my own ability which you know is whether it's unfounded not you know that's he's on. He's allowed to think that, but it's funny offered as manager could would have benefited more from having a full protracted, any mental you ever had any of manager that we could have. They need more than they need to have somebody that can. Stay the ship footballing. Wise. So they can concentrate on the coaching in Oregon Social. Escapes. Think he's does anyway that proficiently sometimes you watch US play football in your fingers what he's guys doing training all day. It's a very, very positive affairs but again, let's see. That news oversleep leak has been interesting to see. It makes me think that the league quite possibly coming from some of the newer players, obviously the matchday source there but that leak regarding. Brewed offenders and Matych, and the having some sort of disagreement in enchaine room which led to a Bruno match coming a half time was something of the heard right after the match finished the I'm sure this league's coming from some of the newer players in the team wherever's Adani whoever is of Bruno Fernandes? Whoever is doing the definitely trying to put that news there to put some pressure on A. Autumn maybe live fire up the team and social oxygen. It's Kinda pulled together the results because I'm indifferent. I'm not really you know social that doesn't get fired I'M NOT GONNA, lose their mind in Jabba window by Mussa kind of the line of thinking of if he's not the right mind for you just get somebody else right just so they can get died I don't get this whole like waiting five games I get the five games are more appetizing. The ones I just mentioned afterwards right if social doesn't pass five-game test and fair enough but I still think, I'd much rather give whoever's in charge the time and space to do what they need to do to get better results for our club. I don't see how we kind of essentially flail ourselves just. So we can really really be sure that social against them average job because we knew we know he isn't. We all know we wished the sentiment was true. We'll wished. Our Ninety. Nine. Hero could somehow pulley out You know put rep out from the hat as a rewrite history, and so of like you know because that's the thing is what that's social too because we were around, we watch cartoons get relegated that season Premier League right and we saw how bad they played football right? We saw the lack of technical innovation in Sasha's coaching he wasn't being lauded or spoken about in the ways that. You know Chris wildly spoken about What's his face at Brighton Manager of Brighton he's not spoken about in the same ways. As you know, new wolves, he's just a manager happens to coach unite his not really regarded that offer his coaching expertise. So we'll really hoped it would have worked out. It's not going to work out I don't think. So at this is ever going to change social is a pretty. Terrible coaching and he's our club where he's not really being helped in any way shape or form Ebay four being left to do it and handler his own. Sir. I. Don't fitness is going to end that well for him of this or I fully expect us to move on get Tina and you know a high somebody who can essentially work in the retard budget or low budget and he can improve the place we. Have available any tactically astute. So if anything he takes all the boxes that glaziers kind of went for this new era of united and what we've kind of been commodore lahser years, we know a winning machine in a way that by Munich is where all by Munich all an efficient you know money-making machine. That's was Acura where somebody's marketing play toy someone's marketing case study in unfortunate full side of things is gonNA suffer. Next on the list what we have here. All we have this. Really Cool. Must Mesa Magilla eminem six stay what would you call it Would you call it a diffusion line? You would right. But especially don't like referring to surface diffusion whatever this regarded diffusion line is much as diffusion line and they're showcasing a collaboration that did with North face which I think is quite possibly one of the best things I've seen in a long longtime. When it comes to voice collaborations it kind of reminds a similar software that recovery is clear while you take a staple piece of clothing from a brand new face on Montclair new reinterpreted in your own way without losing his essence is a really delicate balance, really difficult to get right but once you do get it right you get these really interesting results like this jacket here. So it looks similar to the northwesterly right in the fact that it's got the zips at done the neef interview a wound one you know that novus delays have Max zips I go only if your armpits I'm assuming like ventilation zips or they might be extra extra they have. A modular system where you can clip number Jack. Sure. But for the most part when I wore mind at UNZIP, it here in North Carolina, listen air for because those north face fleeces hold into humanity well. But if you're going to get some sharing during stress open zip. So I saw Mac reinterpreted idea and bits applied instal of like with KP freshman which results in it being like we need once you take your, he lay flat on the floor is basically socal, which is pretty cool in terms of the overall design and something I'm really Kinda Fund of an allowance of this is a collaboration, but they just go the extra mile just because they can. Of course logo or someone is well. You gotta Lou arm sleeves, which are really interesting touch ray. So if you don't get the full jacket or if you don't get the full jacket. To the naked eye you get in the pack included these whiz like arm glove things that would probably make someone that come Kamata Antony wince I mean. Continues here another great outfit then We've got like a classic face here. I wonder if that's part of the collaboration to did he do es unto on that always after something else now is is. It's a twist on an office that's pretty impressive. Again, would Yamasaki's as well looks pretty great. Awesome bag with the same shape as the actual covid selflessly flat. Scoff. Not, as pre siegman this pretty pretty incredible. And then again, Uva back practices see some details regardless of says, we take a close look at the m six major Magilla face fool winter twenty, twenty collaboration I'm build earlier this year London Fashion Week collection season number of Kotla pieces mixed with cold weather accessories the color collection the over collection oxy be laid and opened a possibility styling in stoute's. Takes. The we divided. The wasn't gonNA COME IS GONNA come? UNTO EIGHTH OF OCT of a to attempt of a M M six Hong Kong say pretty cool? Piece of it mclovin. Now I'm all for that one. Then we have a funny video of some lads lassus deciding to play cricket on the Midland. Peckham High Street, which is is what it is what can you do but also maybe a sign of the times a sign of the fatigue and the General Malays seeping through this hallowed nation of mine people just kind of fed up I think. People Kinda. Over it they want to get back to their regular scheduled programing but unfortunately, everywhere they turn things are closed. You have to wear a mask you can't go near anybody. So this is probably a natural reaction to it on. This could be Kesse fired as unintended consequences, right unintended consequence but there is something that baffles me by the source of whereas. Surely someone within the House of Parliament on the. This curfew would have kind of Sat there for Hodan if we force everyone our as time when they'd be more people on the street than ever if we close officer anytime I, it just baffles me how no fourth especially considering how big of an issue. Antisocial behavior is in some parts of England right wherever it's up north down south. You know fervor up in Scotland across the pond. A little bit in island is obviously an issue. I think on these shows with people's ability to holiday drink just and mostly in my opinion is always been suffering I've kind of been by because I think a lot of our great swap. Cocteau by stablishment spots and stuff have essentially been forgotten in the Pasta essentially been put in a position where they were just bound to fail due to diss negligent harmful everyday destructive lice ignore that prevent people from opening. You know hostile twelve goes the Beta sometimes even to it's just he knows what I think it should be especially you could easily go as far saying, Hey, we give Bosnian popular option to stay open until two or something and Keep it up later your platform, Luli? Light late licensor by also mind it. They were like, Hey, we're gonNA give you this extra extension or going to give you the changes at terms when you're a deal, but we also ox that. You have to go above and beyond to make sure your spices safe right because I'm guessing if they agree. Let you stay up to the last thing they need is so you get involved in some sort pass Passo for the whole deal for the way they signed to be called into question. Nolan these in it has warfare learned about working in the corporate industry working in startups in journalism. The one thing in common is that no one likes unnecessary hassle right Nolan's answer for the sins of somebody else and no one wants to be blamed for anything else ever be an interesting. This is just a funny video people pink tree after they'd been chucked out the parks chucked out of the PUPS. I'm not sure if this is enough loafing that might be. This is a protest from some of the key workers behind the scenes in the within the entertainment nightlife industry you know so pouring. Flow looking people. and I wonder what the odds are of dying from somebody heat new credible and she dying from the chicken coop it I wonder their. In the. Ever looks at the Fox off the head she's a foster. I, never quite got cricket. For me I enjoyed catching sometimes who they're by just never got why people for this was interesting sports even play even with your friends request so much prep and it goes on for flipping hours you have to way those dumb uniforms just. So yeah. I guess I was going to happen no big surprised there. So again, congratulations to our government you know thinking it was a the best idea was to get everyone to co at the same time because you know what? That's what you need. We need everybody on the same time everyone gallivanting around. Whilst his virus still picks up steam especially now in like know, yeah, there's findings added as you get outside the suburbs like got. Surely, there's GonNa be a better way to be using your time wherever you may be then during this. Surely Bay again. What do I know? This one we have here. We have unfortunate news regarding by house the Taiwanese hopeful that the hot spot hot postponed that propelled Eddie Horn to fame and closes unfortunately. I actually had the opportunity to go to this is she story I had opportunity to Garba regardless. I missed my chance to go to buy a house when I first went to New York back in what of seven Oh everywhere whenever it was. I remember passing you out side of acutest was really the beginning and it just seemed like a better hassle to go and that was really work at the May. Be at the star of the whole like Steam Bun trending culinary industry was GONNA to pick kicking off especially with the food trucks and That goes off and we just missed out why miss I chance to go and never? Obviously. Timer revisit in.

Contemporary Asian food more than Jim Fudo ever be within the West. Of course, you know seeing somebody that way too long is won't TV was a good thing. I'm shooting for most Asian people coming up the WHO is bucking the trend somewhat and pursuing his dreams doing in a very authentic way telling his family a story for food was really incredible when I think about Hustle Grace I may not especially considering. That it was founded in Canada Heyday the street way day right back in the day with the retail Mafia malarkey. So is kind of sad to see this leave and up around this article from eater says the following chef offer personality Eddie Huang. Has Closed.

It's been a while fulfilling year ride with our house by be lying if I said accomplished, what's happened I been restaurant to tell my family story food at a time when no one else has given asian-americans Johnson TV film books of Media in general I told people not Tacoma shift because I knew this was just a jump off and it doesn't stop what does We've closer sorry bougie is looked at movie is climbing and service Chino's we will. Continue to tell us sorry. Empire. House will be back one day I seen it like twenty seven incentive believe it shall to everyone that put their hearts and souls it's refresh on especially our leader Jj Kingman love all y'all and of course, Evan who happened to me I thank. You told our customers and everyone believed in US infamous by lives on will not let you down cause ain't. No such thing as a halfway cooks mazing one there. So yes. really really sad step affairs and again, just enough indication of just how real covered isn't it's kind of hit and everybody is here my new industries in my little scene is hitting my. Air. Rex petits is affecting people the world over. So if you do have the Or the possibility to put food on the table you know to keep roof of ahead to put some. Clothes on your back beefing for for it because people are hurting in their own individual way and the best way that we can kind of help each other is to be compassionate. Because you know. You can just imagine I guess Eddie longest fine because he's going to carry on doing his stuff and tending into this media behemoth is obviously going to be able to turn into by measuring when behind the scenes, the shoe shifted cleaners front of House people. You know bartenders wherever who are working subversion going to provide job is a pretty bleak times but at least they were able to go out with. So level of a bank. We continue here we got well so we ha. Papa Papa, burr. Oh His mad story mad. Mad Madman this vulture. So I'm assuming Muslim weather s happened what this weekend bill burr did was the comedic guest and enough finger replaced this guy who his name bubble. Boo but they replace was flipping naming Morgan Waylon we've I'm going to say Jack White. Bar Originally was meant to be the musical guests on Saturday night live and he got himself in a bit of her Bob over the weekend, and then he had to essentially be pulled from a show. Just, a story from Boccia kind of describes it as a Pre rock enroll story for a pre. basic sounding country music star. So it's a Bev aside one bowl. So maybe a cautionary tale as to how to manage your entertainment career especially when you get into before of Saturday night live, which is a pre unique experience itself. So I've been told. So this is from Volta. Says s knows next musical guest bought. I'm so spent the weekend kissing and part in Mex-. This is like an episode of one of those tiktok kids in it continues the coronavirus pandemic. Saturday night live is already taking a huge risk by producing live shows with in-studio audiences inside studio eight. At the ferry rook and now new risk has been introduced country musician. The Voice Alumni Morgan whalen who Announced last week would perform the show as musical guests on October temp alongside first time host bill burr spent a weekend partying with an kissing crowds of must re people mostly women. I'm going to say while spent his time at was that Tabasco Alabama according to multiple video circling on twitter and Tiktok Goddamn it. So again, I don't watch any shows I. Don't know about imagine being a what is he alum? He's a Britain's got talent was America, talent, some sort of. Talent show the voice alum and also being a successful country music star in America especially in about Alabama's GonNa make you fairly well known right you're going to be fairly recognizable people going to know what you look like especially when you look at him, right he's got a mullet he's a pretty clean shaven face. He wears you know Western inspired attire you're going to be able to spoil them from a mile of especially with the Promo and a marketing that went into promoting. His appearance, what he's appearance that he was meant to be on on Saturday night live. So it really really. Bad move for him. So again, no is to up and coming rockstars at if you're going to go on a lash and decide to further your family and your career for a little party in don't make sure it's not during the same week that you're about to be announced. It's been announced that you're going to be musical guess is no try and do on that week. You know maybe the week when you wind down Utah something adema Jennifer area create dude that now it continues said. As one local news report described it while new posted a photo on Instagram of himself attending global gaming best? Better Alabama? Saturday October firm is seen in the clips posing with fans not town downing shorts, Kissing Gills and playing the guitar and generally making Mary adverse locations like a bar at the House party in the back of fans car and more he go into. The FA that's appropriate Nyala in it. That's when you actually get loosened. You end up in some stranger's car you end up with some strangest home and you probably end up as this changes bed in it and his case that was the occasion while in and other people in the clip outweigh a mosque taking any kind of proportion is like what shing some ultimate reality? Where curvy doesn't exist and that's always what happens. Again, you get this you get snarky with you know sentences and most of these obstacles but it is really gnarly and it when you stumble the perse when you stumbled across a picture or a video of people out and about gallivanting and enjoying themselves now sometimes, you sometimes looking hold on was up from last year. And look at the day's Posey. No, it's actually from last week is really weird to kind of wrap your head around some people just you know pretending orders acting as if no big deal was happening, which is fair considering the mortality rate said who is affects blood Blah Blah Blah Blah but still you would it be some level of fear but I guess we've been. Maybe as a maybe as a society with so ugly stimuli is right that maybe you know this silent various isn't doing anything to excite is sold like a crappy Netflix show that's got older sparks and Klis over really great TV program and then you watch a couple episodes you don't get any you move on. That's maybe we'll coronavirus it like a really bad netflix's TV series. It continues as wash them clips of him getting down. So this is what I've seen eight like eight hundred and technical similar Morgan well, and belongs to the streets. Look at him God you go. You've got you gotTA. You gotta fill for the LET. My. This Mita Music, thousand out. Aw is doesn't really marry you. We can see what he's doing is dead downing show being a lad. Just not given an absolute calving world about. Fair enough. Another one is his last mermaids recommends that Morgan is a towed back most of the goes into video and nineteen. Okay. Kirk relaxed right mentioned that he's. Drunkenly Kissing nineteen year olds. The dog is immoral. Yes. Should you be doing it? No if you lose his wife and family probably but that he's some kind of paedophile because he's looking up random nineteen yards as a fair. Twenty seven. So what it is, what it isn't it, he's a rookie they're going always be helping up with these tight skin fin ladies apart Sunday and he is again. smooching on people got eventing rouse played. That's a hard one to watch if you're if you're if you're dating a guy. Christus his whole hand on the upper leg may God Almighty going in for the kill?

Let's just allow the guy to to. To learn from this is can. Get. These jokes here he's apology. Some guys is more. Is it tough video for me to make. But necessary one. And I just want to let you know ahead of time that. I. Actually do rice stuff down because I not allowed to say. Something that'll take serious. I love how like when people get caught red handed to any type of things they made the pledge of videos that make it seem as if. Like. Make it seem as if like they were somehow. Or then under the improves like it was like it was something that was out without the something that wasn't in the control and it's like, no, it wasn't your control. You chose to do things at that period of time it may be it was a poor choice right in considering he's ever nation ships day is and what not. But you knew what you doing you did it just fess up, you know admit your mistakes and just move on. But this kind of you know I've got to say lose Lama Mind Right. Now, there's not much to say really appreciate your weapons a lot more to say than you do make just me. I don't want to miss anything to my heart. So if you see me looking away from a video for a second while. I'm in New York City. In a hotel room getting ready for SNL to Saturday feels braverman and I got a call from the. So let me know that I will no longer be able to play. And that's because of COVID. Protocols. which I understand. I'm, not positive for code. But my actions this past week.

Take a step back from the spotlight for a little while. and Go work on myself. I wish I could have made country music and my fans proud this Saturday.

Lastly I know that I'm taking some heat. A lot of heat. But. I just wanted to let you guys know that your messages of encouragement. Haven't gone unnoticed either. They may be a second before you hear from me for a while. But I'M GONNA go I'M GONNA go work on the. Appreciate. Your respecting that. the difficult life of a country, music? Rockstar. Guide. Almighty. What can you do? What can you do? Moving on. Another embarrassing sabotage moment, we have this really peculiar video. It seems I can these celebs don't learn they don't learn. They made that really dumb video Gar. When was that? What was I saying that Jesse Guy from flippin. Breaking bad was in it. GotTa learn learn. Through this any more, and now we've got this really bizarre video with savage decided to strip naked in order to encourage. American citizens to vote in coming collection. pommie thinks this is like A. Sketch and it's not really a real thing. But you know knowing why? No of CELEBS and people in Hollywood and things under lamps at which they would go to to make sure that they are front and center on your mind and that they are entertaining you this is properly the antithesis of in rights stripping naked so that you can pay attention to said individuals is the memo or the O of most celebrities in this is this is kind of Textbook Narcissism To. Say the very least and there was also part of me that thinks there has to be like again I'm American but I don't live there. Now the ports none of my business but I'm sure there must exist a section of. People in America who see disor stuff and we'll just spite vote to decide you know what about nothing people telling me to go right enough never them instructed me or gently nudging meter action of where I should pay my vote I'm just going to spite spy for trump just so I can kind of see those guys howl and scream and friend to leave and move to Canada never follow through it must exist that. Solely mustard because I know if that was me and I was evident I saw these celebrities people who actually top to who I kind of looked at heroes decided to strip naked to encourage vote that'd be like what the fuck is going on. So this is a tweet from now this is a following celebs including Sir coat. So Silverman Tiffany Haddish. Chris Rock free pretty decent high-level comics exception tippy editors know how they Free legitimately funny people especially Hollywood, not like fake funny like funny I shipping down to bring attention to naked ballots. An encouraging voters to follow vote by mail instructions. What the hell is this man it really makes no sense that's play. I'm naked I'm completely but half naked a naked. Jit like an not to comment on women and what they look like in. South, bar. Lake. Naked is is a was face not most. warned exist like that face Jesus naked I'm like naked. Man Behind me, these are my hands. Why are you want me be naked? Ultra thinking thinking Ruffalo on pitcher closer to be honest I. Wish I could. Cover my hands with my boobs.

But the most important thing you can do listen to me, united TV pregnant which on Netflix I'm that person from the show you what if he listened to me, you'll be bell. No that ballots could be naked and if you don't do exactly what I tell you that your ballot could get thrown out. This is my ballot just glad I. Imagine depression being a celebrity holy pressure entertainment she where you get that no issue get cold by Agencia manager and tell you hey, guess what they're. They want you to do a little sketch.

Just because no one's paying attention to their interim no one cares about a TV interview did because you know people just don't give a shit. So they want to get in front of the eyes of people say just do it for the sake of doing all some feel compelled to not turn away and not kind of reject that. Cool because they. Feel, as if it might impact the possibility of other jobs, I'm sure that must exist. You think it damage. They asked me Sir the memory they ask you just kind of have to do it because you're involved in Hollywood ecosystem but cheeses coming out the ball. When your balance comes, you're supposed to read the instructions read and follow the instructions that come. Come on Chris Ruckman. I've just fallen back in love with Chris Rock is on Fargo season four and local is doing. Come on Bloomberg with your ballot. If they use the Black Penn, use a black pet kosher handlers therein it if anybody likes to likes the sound their own voice like seeing themselves in front of camera in a Burrito, the public about some indiscriminate doing Chelsea handler.

It can't be serious illegitimate cannot, but if it is. We pray for them. We really do. Living on moving on moving on. So I listened to a pretty decent podcast at court freakonomics him. Sure mercy pull off media with. freakonomics. To have a pretty decent book, they put out a few years ago. I read by a really good episode called is New York City over episode number four free for a really interesting debate on both sides of the Iowa ever know cities are essentially over to it with people migrating to Bava parts of the country or countryside and of no is especially in. London. For the most part that foot specially, my circle of friends nothing has really changed and terms of where people are living baby people's lifestyle choices and expectations for work and Quality of life aspirations have essentially changed by in terms of location, not as much that this may change when we get a better idea as to what the land is by feel like the people who would have moved have probably moved away in I want to move us through here. That's basically the point because I think you know, get packing up your bags and decide into find Pasha's new. Now especially in the midst of this source second peak or the second spike, the run at the moment probably is inadvisable but I do think we're going to see a shift in the desire of people especially the people that live outside the cities to kind of run into the city wherever it happens. To show, I do think that would happen it. It just just bound to in London fishy for where I am not malicious to pack way too crowded. There's no of housing available the ones that are available grossly grossly overpriced and you know just in terms of job prospects and stuff is not the best place you know your compete is probably this probably way too much competition for. The level of jobs are available right this competition for Salads in Japan since righteous working in a retail store is difficult just to get a job you have to kind of get recommendation, maybe get link up or just before Schnitt to apply it. So many times that you just pushed up the list wherever it may be. So I can only imagine what? It must be for like jobs where you know essentially only ten a penny and they require a particular skill set is definitely going to increase the level of competition in that regard but I think. In terms of coalition spaces, we're definitely going to see in the nights there. We're going to see possibly people deciding to use those kind of things often especially if you've got your own building, go your office saying he's always been levels ren in times of is no room need on a pro point of doing. So you're probably better off deciding to cut your costs and decided to. play surfing one unit our probably make sense going forward Of course, you have the benefit for the company on their side to have the ability to have access to far better levels of talent or you know I a better talent pool to choose from because you're often people to work from Motlley as lows of really big. Things. That will probably explored once the economy gets back to some eleven of normality going forward. But I think episode the Self on Freakonomics episode four free four was a really interesting one really limiting kind of opened my eyes as to was kinda going on. Across the pond in America in a very similar was happening here in new. York. City. Is One of the most they say densely populated is no only might be number one. And London's or functions the same solway. That's one thing I realized when I went to new actually how similar was a? London. Just in terms of the energy and the way people move around the city options offerings located had the Simla soul fiber and and of course you know they have the benefit of being a city that never sleeps but definitely, checkout episode freakonomics episode number four free for is called is New York City over very, very formative we move on. Up Up, up up, up. We have here. Burba all we really distressing news regarding a Northern Ireland teen named upon the sudden deaths of young people in England. So this car spark my interest of course, mostly due to the pitch of the lady every pre young lady down fortune. Possibly I think tough. No no way Zemstov Syracuse on the loose or something, and then you read the article and you realize this is an unfortunate or unintended consequence of of the restrictions. And rules. That come into place Jew to covid. That have negatively affected teenagers especially those who are kind of in a nest and decided to go to university. You know about the help of parental supervision and with friends who are not necessarily in very friendly Kinda way. Getting in situations Dr are resulting in down fortunate timing or demolition of passing. So desk a phony and eighteen year old student from a Mike has died suddenly at a university holes in Newcastle upon Tyne the weekend Jenny, La more How was only weeks into beginning his because university in eighteen year old man had been arrested in connection with a death. He is currently in police bail while investigation continues a statement said Miss the MOS. Next of kin had been informed and being supported by offices at this time in a wide, the statement farm bureau of Police said they are investigating after tragic deaths of for young people in couldn't a more another eighteen year? Old Woman Twenty, one year old man Newcastle as well as an eighteen year old in the town of Washington statement said investigations are very early stage by drug suspected to be the factor and that's what Bra and. You can just imagine especially these kids and at the moment they essentially been locked up into your holes Jew to you know spike in covert in positive curvature cases, somebody university halls, and most of them most of them are lethal or Muslim are laughing encases cases mostly just test impulsive. Remain under lockdown on quarantine and to be okay after the fourteen day period. But of course, universities are panicking and do will they can. To show the don't get any more but presently received and you know if you'd lied teenagers alone in their rooms for prolonged create times what they're going do they're going to try to occupy their times and of course, the best and so of like to do is to drink and do drugs, and if anything university you should be a safe place to do both things. Right it should be a place where you should be introduced to your tolerance or your limits or your ability or your liking for dislike for either of the. Things especially, if you a good in a friendship group, I'll magin. But the fact that people are essentially not doing anything university locked up in their rooms unable to go to lectures having to have food liberty to date domes overpriced through as reported in the ever a podcast regarding North Hampton University over overcharging students for the delivery of food right the think the mills came up to about free pound new charge, the students, seventeen pounds of obscene even though they clayton thousands if not millions from students coming through their doors every term so. These kids are going to university to trying to pass the time. They trying to make the best of a bad situation and the end up doing way too many drugs for their level of tolerance level of experience, and unfortunately some cases especially if the drugs that they're taking our tainted or there are no particular quality or they're just not physiologically. A good matchup, Sir Vince. Could I also does happen They're put in on. Put Putting a composition where unfortunate leave some day lose their lives and it's really tragic a really really tragic because again, like I said, it should be a safe space. You should be able to experiment with drugs and alcohol at -versities at university with your friends in a safe environment. You know they are fun. They can be a fun experience but that does you do need to have people group who are able to may be coach for it. I know from experience that the best thing to do or the best thing is the best thing in a group of friends that has one person who kind of is the The one in charge of making sure. You know the things arrive of a good standard wherever is again a hold of test wherever it in the whole making sure you're purchasing somebody that's a good recommendation a friend of a friend WHO's also purchased the thing to that person. There are ways to go about things but again, leaving kids alone in the circles is only goes leads to one thing and is really really tragic this. Is kind of happened and again, I hope once carpet is over and once we get back to some level of normality the people that were responsible inadvertently to to situation I held accountable for the actions because you know people's families have been torn apart not only economically but also tragically drifted untimely possible of young people at University really horrible story about what highlight that one day. But Papa Burr we move on. US WE WANNA talk about the the son is oh. So, this is not typical here from rolling stone. Magazine a fairly Just. Say if any so bring ought squashy from the Rolling Stones magazine reminding myself and others within the night last seen that. Have, optimistic that we feel about things go for that. We probably shouldn't. especially if you want to employ and Reagan something I've been missing for the longest especially F ing may be since the winter months of she come been thinking Falkman how amazing? How Fun would it be to be able to go out now in pauline free hands up in like you just can do all that good stuff. But unfortunate Lena needs must stain does in remain in place all that good stuff. So this article here from Rolling Stone says a follower coachella will rue schedule it state again. So I think you're aware prior to covid wreaking havoc on most of the world. A of my been what they defers or my bugging out. Oh, I'm not sure but regardless, they will one the ones I remember seeing deciding to postpone dates often twice or something they pushed it back and it is I had to push it back again to the following year. Essentially canceling I'm assuming if you don't say council something, you are kind of protecting yourself for liability reasons malarkey but essentially, they incident said, hey, we're gonNA for again next year with the exact same lineup. So this article says the following so they can the council again until. April twenty twenty one instead. So is the following. So twenty two to twenty, one year twenty. continues. It says Coachella was supposed to take place in April twenty twenty. But when Kobe nineteen short, the festival colonizers pushed into this month. And then again to April twenty twenty, one of the devices in the US climbed on some multiple music industry insiders. Now Tell Rolling Stone that a twenty addition popular music festival will be pushed back for a first time took Tober twenty twenty one which goes into line with the article that I mentioned in a previous podcast for Merck former w emmy. Executive. Who Said is essentially, we shouldn't expect contest to come back again until two thousand, twenty, one dollars you get up there. Komodo went up again. But this this one by continue says sources have been. In. Direct communication with a E. G. and Goldenvoice concert promotion companies that Okinawa Festival. So they have been ox to prepare for Muthu to four and against probably no surprise for us in that life seen I think we've kind of come as ation at you know most likely to not. We're going to be the last industry or the most sector of the economy to reopen were the first close will be will be the loss of reopen and just you know unfortunately due to the how covers spreads is probably not conducive to have these events, but there is a problem thinks. If, you're able to implement some level rapid testing if you're able to limited capacity if you're able to ensure that there's steady airflow and will be Sorvino re adjustments made to the cardinal to. Make sure that is covid secure I. Think we could get around that really is an issue. It really is a possibility because to expect in a bars and clubs around the country to stay you know to be essentially unemployed ob unable to make money am unable to pull events unable to support their staff and the white community for what another year ish does doesn't seem like it makes any sense as it. But again, like I mentioned, we probably should've been disturbed comic. No surprise especially considering his article. The I I kind of spoke about a podcast that was published in July seventeenth earlier this year this executives at the following Mark Geiger unto recently the head of music of W me. One of the founders a Lotta Palooza sounds like he's expecting to be attending any festivals in two thousand, twenty, one, right he already said in July, with nothing's going to happen. Next. Year he said the following ox on the Bob left podcast when he expects to return Geigo, said, my guess is late twenty, one more likely twenty two. So when I heard that at first I, already when especially when you hear from industry professionals, people working with some of the biggest promoters and music festival in the world is definitely a beverly Markelle at Bevan indication of how the entire industry will go. You know obviously trickle down effects you know. Some of from the biggest or smallest events they need to ensure that they go through without any hiccups. Last thing you want is to Portland, event Russia, and in have source of people catch cove, which could potentially turn turn into lows a civil cases which could considerably end up. At tanking and tie network. So nor wants that smoke so you make sure you on an event in a step is possible time to show. You have no liability go forward and unfortunately you know events bases and you know people that work in the ones to suffer. So says the following ends envision Article Gutierrez one, hundred percent moving again one person who works with the major time agency represents pot farmers Taller Williston said frankly, they were supposed to announce the change over Labor Day but And they were supposed to announce the September. But he had the sources say they have heard from Goldenvoice Eureka Cello. Founder Poor Tyler Office that the new date will either be the first or the second week of October twenty one. But they're holding I three weeks to be safe at autism have confirmed availability that is insane insane in it. So the festival to go layer on this year later, this year was pushed back to April of next year's Nagano, turbo most likely the beginning of the year. So again yourself can you wait until next year October this time next year to go by festival rave. Can you wait if not? Let me know commenced Mbula I'd love to know your force and opinions. And then a very interesting observation from a German virologist called Christian person. He saw like the the the FAO Gio. Germany essentially telling us that we're going to be wearing masks for another year. So don't expect to be massless until then is a message basically to the Anti Mosque people out there the mobile but listen to what he has to say. How much longer? Do you expect this corona pandemic to go on force still globally? Well it's very difficult to to make global projections. We have very different difficult situations. Countries around here. Europe A. The winter will not be easy one. we will have back scenes during the next year to come us. Encouraging. I I guess it will last until end of the next year until significant parts of the population can be provided vaccine. So we won't get. Rid of masts. Anytime. Soon on so even. While, we stop vaccinating the population largest parts will have to wear masks in countries like Germany where incidence cheeses. That's a tough one to here in it the end off the next year I think most sensible people would have come to resolution right all realization that we into a mosque until the next year I would like to see a little bit more very. Creative approach to like I said previously, I would like to see some places adopt a Swedish model. Tried to implement herd immunity of places decided to go. You know to hold onto the mosque on to the end of next year of places you know try and push forth this vaccine that seems like about all intensive purposes going to break all records a fitness last vaccine. That was able to provided. A mass was essentially developed offensive in a four year period a four year window right so if they're able to do that, if they're able to turn this around within in two years or eighteen months, this unprecedented, it goes against anything that I basically hud experts as normal a home. So able to amazing for everybody but still to roll it out to the entire population or to roll out to the people that do want to receive it, it's going to be really difficult operation itself so. I guess get comfortable with the Moskva yet comfortable Quinn that Finland Strapping Batboy and when you go into. Crowded areas when you go into shops when he go into private businesses. When you just go out and meet your friends and if days tell me, hey, anyway, you can go to meet your friends and hang out is supporting the Mass I. Don't think that's bad. sacrifice of bad sort of. Thing to make for the time being I don't think. said. Is What it is. We we have to make adjustments in these crazy times living at amendment and I think that's one of. Damn. Moving on Nicks one update we have an update Tory lanes felony case. The soil in shooting case regarded making a surged from TMZ, says a full in toil infinitely charge in Meghan study in shooting a he's formed had been charged finally we have a date set for arrangement would also going to be having a guest days going forward depending over people are going to be willing to come up in you know testify this woman lucky but we might finally come to some level of conclusion as to walk heard on that. God. Forbid a night where would that started off so much promise right? They'll in a swimming pool Kylie Megan Tori having fun being kids being young Elliot's Juden would said quite icon. and. Then somehow, it kind of transpired kind of went into complete disarray at which resulted in somebody. Shot somebody literally get some wounded for and many broken hearts all over the place and friendships right? Like I think since then make basic entire team since occasion which makes sense in it. If involved in such a traumatic event, you're probably going to look at team and say, Hey, what could you have done better to ensure our situation because you would imagine her being the star they'd have to go above and beyond to show that she safe and well looked after because she's essentially the person is paying for these. You know that she's one paper but is night she's ensuring you get into the best clubs you don't get into no bul these what these places go. Wherever they could we've out her on the guest list. So this is an update from TMZ, said the following to Elaine's has been charged connection with the shooting what make the studying just weeks off the single recent album claiming he's innocence The La County DA's office hit him with one count of assault with a semi automatic firearm and one count of carrying a loaded unregistered vitamin, a vehicle that the also story infected bodily, great bodily injury, of course, being charges in the conviction. But that does require heavy in it especially when he could especially in the context of the, if you just get the album sounds a whole toxic when you see these charges but again, a charge is no conviction it continues you can dated the rapper and singer faces up to twenty two years and eight months in prison now, the stuck out to me was. This just firearm in a vehicle I'm dead. That's always a big issue in the states in it having a virus register to you and overseas being loaded up deep up la but I have a feeling. This might be a real big issue going forward. So keep an eye on this charge here. Am I think if he's able to if if wasted true, he might be able to prove that he wasn't the one day afflicted the actual bullet a hit or wherever ricochetted, often hit mega foot but this might be a problem for him. So definitely keep an eye out for the firemen vehicle charge. It says, he conveyed the twenty two years as reported. The pursuit prosecutors has said that they were mulling over charge a felony assault, a firearm against. said she shut him back in July, remember toy he had been arrested but only charged with possession of a firearm prosecutors are now explicitly pointing the finger Tori as Amana pull the trigger leaving Meguid gruesome foot injury, which she saw the picture it took make some time before she went public and accused by name as a person who shy she didn't to was saying yesterday and he showed me you shut me and you publicists and people could see blogs lying shit stop lying. which looking back seems a bit Auburn again if it did happen that way if it did and you are going to the police or there isn't a pending investigation going on instagram and telling everybody pointing the finger and setting everyone who did it is bizarre and who knows this may come back and buy her in a buys workers I. Think this Court case is GonNa be very interesting especially if you consider. What Megan said in the beginning like they WANNA get anyone in trouble Radwan again when trouble. So let's see how far you take that because when you get caught up to a witness, will you follow through? Would Your promise not get when you're in trouble? Will you want to put this behind you and provides some witness testimony to a pretty gruesome experience continue to? Article says the following says. It sources Torey say that they were mitigating circumstances and based on what we know. We believe Tori's going to say it was an accidental shooting. Megan helped at the SF O of a social media caption, which has since been deleted that said that he said she had back to. What she was shot in a hill that might indicate she didn't see it. An is when toy literally pull the trigger. Jesus. Christ so yeah, we might finally get conclusion to this. Toy decided to reply on his socials. He says, the following time will tell and truffaut come to lie. I have faith in God to show Lotto, my fans and people that have stayed true into me. No, my heart the AUDUBON statement is this. He says a charges no conviction of course, which is fine. He says, if you have supported me or make food this, I, generally support you appreciate what you mentioned makes naming again I'm not sure if that means. Back Hongkou termed if he still fishing for her love or whatever may be buzzed very autumn mention her in this tweet especially when you think that she might be. Essentially, responsible for his downfall if this case ends up going forward, Taylor are people expecting too so. I think this is this may be again it makes it makes people that are on either side look silly in it that this is going to court now the ones I like store she did nothing wrong in was unacknowledged one is evil weather is I end of the day we're GonNa find out what eventually happened in forbidden car when they have binging Toco anyway there's. No need to occupy such fringe such kind of short positions. Either way because we went there, we don't know exactly what happened, but we're GONNA find out once this all washes out in the so Lissi. Would you think do you think he's guilty? Do you think he's not guilty? You plead not guilty plea guilty Mattino let me know your force in the comments down below. Okay let's move on in move on up move one in on hunt move on in where it's really interesting. Was it clipped I saw regarding or seats face. Mr Kreischer. We're GONNA find it now think it might be love a page me get up on the second. Gets up one here is regarded Mr Burt Bart. crushe having an issue with another for the comedian that made me laugh. Let me see if I can get up the. Sick. go so. It's finding he almost gets up on a screen press pulls it doesn't play too loudly and it doesn't Basra jumped bail me one second. Let's see if I can get this upper. Pause costs so I. Guess this is I'm assuming this is recent unless you show how recent is actual clippers but I stumbled upon this clip thanks to the homeless cats for point in meaner at direction but concerning a fellow comedian. I. Guess in the scene who decided to go on a tirade and basically Kula Croatia for being a beverage bad dude not being a good guy who this? which is probably part of coarseness standard procedure of in comedy scene in it seems that Love Infighting Love Jealousy King of. People just being bitches in general and not really seeing. The situation or seeings in success and entertainment industry for what is right just a matter of luck in some cases, right is basically a flip of a coin who ends up being the person on a massive Netflix's postal somewhere. On the Broadway of La. Is there's every out assume again from yes, I look. Most. Worked to. Work hard everyone was a particular standard people do sports appearances a riot law they record stuff there Khuda said go over what they did the previous day tweet the hone. All that stuff you seal a Mark Newman blog assume most comedians dude. That's the case. Then you know I would assume if you're like ten years in your pretty decent or what you do and you've heard across the good our on the shell middle good forty five minutes. It is really luck of the draw as to who becomes the next big thing who opportunity guess especially, this machine to get TV show to set out, stand up gigs around the country. It doesn't necessarily mean that if one person successful that negates any think in your journey and unfortunately, this guy doesn't seem to understand this but it is again picking on is probably the easiest ones to pick on because you know he's comedy is a little bit. No, he's comedy is Great. Piece Persona might make you think as a of a doofus when I think he is I think he kinda plays up the whole dumb dumb kind of joke that persona but continued this is a clip of On his name is decided to go on a rampage about Croatia regarding all the things he hates about Tim Celeste here while he has to say. Let me go to my guest so I listen. So. There's one episode to listen to your podcast. I've had guys I norman non and bird a good your. PODCAST so awesome listen. So. There's one episode to listen to from your podcast. I had guys like I had Norman Non Bird in Alba fucking players all you comedy fans they're all been on. For treasure. Yeah did he do this? Big Berkman. Content. Marketing. Not. What are you GonNa do not let me open for you done. Your. Wife's a nice lady but you're a fucking bitch you're terrible comic. You're not good you're. And again, what what does that game? What does that gained Bessie June this Crazy. Girlfriend a moment disparaging a fellow comic who's Going through the. Process as you especially if you consider the actual. Here. Is a bad dude for doing what precisely not deciding to have him open for him because he's mentioned in passing that property is the the crux of the issue, right? I'm assuming he wasn't able to gay gigs guests bull while he wasn't able to go on the road we him or something on this kind of lines, which is you know a faint. Issue like where people in general that only speak up about people whenever they kind of do them wrong. But other than that a basic them shot and just kind of go along because it's benefiting. Democrats. Soon, it doesn't benefit them. They quit to kind of free under the bus around Venus Fair whatever this picture. Pretty horrible slow low by the way was changing with the on the Mike. That that thing is if you're gonNA call somebody out. Quote Unquote. An actual thing they did right as opposed to just all because it didn't help me out on my stand up way in give me two option or the opportunity to open put him on the road. Doesn't make sense to me your marketing. It's all marketing marketing marketing marketing marketing shirt off drinks, bla-bla-bla marketing marketing. You wake up every morning going Oh, how do I market this? How do I market this? That's it that your life he's not a bad person, but he's marketing I will say nothing would ever being a billionaire marketic. I've Seen Salah in even my world dj or this used to be a little bit of confusion like how people make it all successful yes. There are those exist who are purely Successful due to their talent other ability or their looks whether he may be. But for the most part, it is a lot of passion zero right? especially with the advent over smartphone everyone has the ability or the possibility or the option to be their own PR right to be there a market here to be on social media manager why you take your paternity to do so and unfortunately, if you do want to amplify talent if you wanna be able to reach the masses, you have to have to embrace marketing to some level acquainted view to some point, right? You can have to embrace it. To kind of sit there and you know and hope. That Times go back to. When Dave attell with blowing up and doing his thing? That's not gonNA happen anymore. Did you know that is incorrect exist if you went to be you know a stand up comic of Anisimov noteriety or have the option to you know work certain shows go certain places you have to get your voice out there and then an open you know the best person to basically learn it from if you're on the road would be progression right? He's probably the best marketing on social and wrong is annoying to go and use pro time encino a million dollars on stories about him kind of trapeze ing will across its TESA got up attorneys, friends and his big fat red face on camera and laughing giggling. Easing everywhere yet, but it's pretty cool as well to see that he's always on always creating content always documenting stuff. What can ideas writing you see the prices kind of unfolding, and then you kind of get recap toys and he goes on a podcast causes quite cool to see desolating. Imagine if a stand up comic and you actually are working in industry and seeing a peer of yours, you know blowing up on that platform precisely that should be encouraging especially when you think about how he blew up, right the machine was a story that he didn't want to tell the as has he famously describes it I interaction to Joe Rogan, he tells the. Job and says, Hey, you should be so defiant Hilton stage guess the son He puts on facebook fingernails UT specialists will whether didn't do too well took a out. He said the clipper from special facebook it blew up in any suddenly becomes his massive massive star right far biggest Omni was price-setting arena. So setting stadiums no setting Ireneusz setting a comedy clubs right and in kind of building from there was a now he's. Doing these amazing collages way essentially, you know got hundreds of 'cause in the garlic people honking horns hunter in watching him do stand up on a massive jumbotron when he's on stage I that's pretty cool for marketing. So don't don't Poo Poo fiene issue Tony. So That's about Bert Kreischer he has the machine story that is hilarious and he's Not. Really if you look at the. Pulled on. Point can you can you? Yes and for a half a second over here. Have that on the board I just I was like that and pont. No he has he has one story that's entertaining and funny. He's milked that what's surprising about Burke is that? In a moment. Whilst would milkin and something that's going away what's wrong with trying to get the most out of what little attention you're finally getting on your career was the problem with that somebody's Comedians are very bizarre I. Don't know how they expect to become successful if they don't want to market and it don't WanNa milk members happened in a career very odd you can't get away from him. He's on everyone's podcast. He's three thousand podcast he hosts himself he's constantly putting out content I read show recently where he's you. Can't get away from you just following the places that he's on. If he's on a show that you'd like, you just skip that one. If you don't want to look face, you don't follow social like that's one of the most bizarre things I've heard anyone say on comedy like part of the reason why you WanNa be everywhere. So people don't forget your face when I said they day yoke and always living in their head read free and it seems like even they kind of denying that he's kind of. His ability as a comic he's essentially occupied mind space for free for what just being himself in. Eating peanut butter on a podcast, which is by the way eating food, I guess eating peanut butter is the worst thing you could possibly. and. The guys nasty. One of the previous tube as one cave he's talking about eating his book is suffering I, just skip I just food just click ex in the low crime tab book and keep it moving next show tune in again that's what you gotta do. PODCAST and this is where he's putting on his content and some he's still very popular I cannot figure it out. And that Darren is the issue and you know like I said in a previous show you know sometimes the West do make to succeed, but they'll so there is a case where I think even better will be he would be he would admit it the most I've most people. He says it of numerous hounds Dr Laura Spectrum about the prestigious know about the the role luck played needs career. Some people mentioned too. Often you know off the we've gone pasta hardworking we ought to be gone pasta you having the ability to do to setting the you're doing records law people get into stuff mission to crave the arts where there is a barrier for entry rise Lewis you've got a passionate you WanNa do something you can do it and onto the Stock Uber playing the guitar. But what's it get past your proficiency of playing with your good on objectively. We get Paseo hard work. Most of the success in entertainment industry does come down to lock. It just does right. is he's lucky that he's what a comedian in this area he is lucky that maybe he was on TV. With the travel channel, he's lucky. He ended up being friend Joe Rogan lucky that he's best friends, Thompson. Lucky that he still decided to pursue his on comedy Corinne Eleonore in New York. These things are kind of you know when he's way that you deem as lucky by essentially you gotta put yourself in a game to be lucky you got up allies would be in a position where you can capitalize take advantage of that luck when it comes away. But to suggest that he somehow you know a freak of nature that he just got lucky that's why you successful the only reason is really doing a disservice again, the sky from me WHO's you know I. Can be a bit Hong Code of him right that sometimes I listen to him speak especially in east kind of going to sift deprecation thing when it comes to drinking and this stuff that gets annoying. But most of the time you can have to respect the hustle after spent his ability to continue creating continue kind of embarrassing himself and make the ridicule the incident ray subjecting himself to terrible comments on social media right being friends of Ari alone should be a reward in itself of course, is GonNa play a or an aspect in success what way would Work in my success to it should work in US as well. I will tell you this hour I used to open for bird. I'm a guy, I know him I know him very well, I have a phone number. He's not fun to hang out with because he's looking at his phone the whole time like. As. Recording himself week sauce is, will you complaining about he eats peanut butter on podcast? You can. Chew now of he didn't take a wrote Machine story was funny and he's funding token to come one weeks or looking at twitter. So that's what it is. I'm sorry is I. Know You I'm raining on your parade about the the machine. And listen not reading on anyone's free. You just make yourself look like an absolute loser. Imagine the one you're picking out to kind of you know pull up and say, oh, he's not that good at what he does is but I imagine cooling of the people call out over the people that you could accuse being hacks of all the people you could accuse of essentially using stand up comedy in order to get you know a bad position ought in order to kind of rewrite the narrative of their career or people that disrespecting the craft right of people you can call out. This is the guy you WanNa Colo.. It says more by Union does about him really bad he's not a bad guy he's not but he's a fucking narcissist who wants to be payments. That's all he wants to be. Isn't that isn't that like the description of comedy in having your own work in Hollywood industry isn't that the? That's it spam everybody Ahmedi. He doesn't care about the comedy vehicle to get you there. He pretends he does but he doesn't because Dave attell is the best comedians of all time agreed is Yep and for me like I'm like I'm team Mattel, Burke crushers marketing he's wants to be famous. So so you can book as David No. One's going to stack a world against Dave attell even flipping Dave chapelle wouldn't no one will. That's a pretty. Poor equivalency to Fuck Bert if this is my career I'm flying I'm good I did very well I love this podcast. You can tell you today whether you're complaining about what is happening base has happened to ages ago as well. He's doing. So well is complaining about a slight you know, and again I bet you this is something that he's receiving in his own head to bet you happens a lot of people in will you perceive a slight in your mind you woke up into such an issue? Right, that Suave kind of outstrips what actually happened on the A thing. This is Great I. Love It. We're talking. com. Kreischer done. For enough in it I guess it has to keep that same energy when he does see the guy in real life. But again, like I said I I think. This will loser energy isn't something that I would ever condone I think in Venice. Where become C waivers even Brendan Shops Worldwide Day. All right. His Fun Kinda Poke Fun of these people. But Hey, if they find a way to be successful in lane or in an arena, they kind of. get some sort of joy out of and fans enjoy what they do. That's what Madison, the Dave your comedian will be circling. You're wondering how they did it. Maybe something's to learn about their approach, their work ethic their marketing abilities who dayline themselves of their network. This'll things that you can maybe plan your own career and if not just ignore it I, don't understand people would just not be able to not that they don't like. It really is especially with covert especially with covert right if evidence the time to you to kind of recalibrate and thinking Oh, what what are really want to be doing my life? WHAT ARE WE WANT TO BE? Spending my time one should be dish should be the timely should be like you know what I shouldn't be worried about the next man I should be worried about what they're doing over there. I shouldn't be worried about this missed opportunity. This perceived slight that was done to me. I should be concentrated on my craft and making sure that I'm the best of what I do so that when a chance comes aloma way when luck does kind of you know shine down on me right I can take advantage of it as opposed to poking holes Awad as a doing because it makes you feel now I'm the with that whatsoever I'm the with that whatsoever. Kate. I think that might be accessing ship number seven as per usual. Put Allowance as perfect. Way, and now look like you know I look at new often a former the boys actually. This way. Baz free civilization thinks so much again for tuning in if it's a I, I'm shooting NBA smashed at like one hit subscribing mccomb down below if you're listening to the podcast pleasing if I saw a few and showed your friends and that's a usual as per usual Chevy, a Patriot to make sure you keep the link down below pin comments and also initial description click patient accomplish casino support a show on there and I'll see you guys again forever again tomorrow until then take care be safe.

Caught Offside: OGS for MUFC?

"Caught offside with Andrew gumming and JJ Davani. Off-side from the Upper West side of in hat, Andrew gumming, J J Advani, what's up. I was a nice. Oh, yes. Considering you feel a bit under the weather. Yeah. I wasn't gonna bring that up though. Because I don't want to. Selling whiny, baby. No. But I will say if there's a lag in energy won't become there won't be me won't be. You do look a little bit. I know it's not good. It's not good. But it's it's nothing coming out of the Bom Bom nothing coming out of the mouth, right cold. Yeah. Hopefully, that's all this, right? I wasn't talking about any of this. And now you've made me out into this. Just weak. Solis figure. What would you have preferred we open with Brexit? I wanna just hope we would start talking about soccer and sports. All right. This sports really like. Sports will put you on a real roller coaster. I know we know that but just like your weekend this weekend was wild saved kind of like the Manchester. United win over Spurs was probably taught them most gut wrenching loss of the shorn. And then the the eagles happened. And like I'm ready after the eagles to just check out on sports teams. I'll do that mainly for the when the eagles play off when their season ends. I sometimes feel like you know, what I need two weeks. I binge watch shows like I don't want to even watch sports centre. Whatever now happen to work in sports. So it's hard to do this. But I was like you know, what Monday night. Syracuse is playing Duke. As a Syracuse grad. Someone who's obsessed with the team. I gotta watch. I would I'd hate myself forever. If they lost that game. And then they go and beat Duke Indu in overtime. It was like one of the greatest games ever seen sports will just it's what's great and terrible about sports all at once. Just when you thought you were out they pull you back in. Yeah. And now I'm back in and now I'm watching everything again like like at all never felt guilty being happy yesterday after the Syracuse game because I was like the eagles deserve more of a period of mourning now because you're still reflecting upon the fact that you are reigning Super Bowl champions for another weeks. I wasn't angry. But I was really really kinda like it was a heartbreaking loss. I was heartbroken for spars who we're gonna talk about that. Oh, boy that was that was something. I don't wanna look I know that this is not a Tottenham podcast is a general soccer podcast. Try to have like a tone of of bitterness over at Manchester United fans, listen to podcasts just as much as Tottenham fan. We take down the down the middle OG is you're calling him on the run down. I can't type I you could ask me ten times to spell the last name soul Shire, and I might spell it differently on all ten of those times. Let's GS. Everybody knows what we're talking about. Klay tizzy used to say it differently. Original original gangster, soc our soul Shire. And then when he scored fell Shiraz done it. Yeah. So, yeah, we're gonna talk about him and whether or not momentum is starting to build in his favor to potentially permanently become the manager of Manchester, United, obviously, we're gonna talk about David heya and kind of a performance for the ages at Wembley the other day. We'll talk about it from Spurs perspective. Because not only did they lose a game that they probably felt like they should have one. They also lost their best player, and they didn't just lose him. They lost him for a while. And that is bad that is bad. Bad news bears. And we're gonna talk about to heya we're going to Pedder check even talking about Sunderland because they're making waves here in the United States with the Netflix documentary central until I die with David Preece who will be back on the program shortly red card man of the match. I'm really feeling good JJ about my red card and my man of the match. I'm feeling good about the mailbag because there was a lot of tasty things were thrown up ruin Ave Lampert. Jared watch OMO enter I better start looking for it. I found it. Well, it's mostly going to be a Lampert. Watch our rather who was watching him. On gerard. They're just out in Rangers or currently on this. It's the Scottish winter break. Right. So they're currently out. I think in somewhere Sony on Gerard is joining in training, ping, forty yard passes and making his his players look inferior like I don't care. How old he gets you? You never lose that. Right. Yeah. Lose pace late. But I don't think you lose the ability to do something like that. But it's you don't lose it. And he's not the game long. Fifty is even like thirty. You wanna see the pass he played though? All right. It was an, of course, ranger social media world over I should say to for my read or from my man of the match for the people who don't typically make it that deep into the podcast because it's always at the end. But who like when I give you trivia, my man of the match is heavy on the trivia. So I'm giving you reason either to stick around or to just fast. I am. I'm not in the trivia mood. What's wrong with you your under the weather? I don't want to be quizzed put on. The spot like in some kind of interrogation by sickness have to do with your ability to answer questions. We both have our ailments. What you go do the show from in there. If you're so worried about getting sick go I can see if the glass outbreak monkey let's see let's talk about like, I said before Manchester United and they're one victory over Spurs. Oh JJ. Happy days are here again for Manchester United. It's amazing how quickly it's all changed. Yeah. I know it's kind of not so much. Oh, what a good interim appointment the buzzes back. It's kind of switch to should this guy. Get the job going forward forever. And it's just amazing. The little things that the just little things that are happening throughout expert since there. He's laughing at the game. We know he's being around the training ground. We noise been talking toilet owner saw Cher. But what we're discovering is that only gonna soldiers coaching methods and the things Furby Dade are no robing off and training. Yeah. We've heard that. He's playing the older guys against the younger guys which was a Fergie game. He took them up to do by he worked on on tactics. But also heavily on on attacking play. You know, Furby threat from the frigging enor- book. I'm we saw at Wembley that this is the team that's dur- still it's still problematic. It's not perfect. But look at Lindelof performance with goalkeepers performance. Look at Pago has more. Moments because I still don't think he's one hundred percent there. Look at rash Democracia. Yeah. It's amazing. What a what a smile in a positive attitude can do they're like you're making light of that. But I do believe that that is part of the is the stats in terms of sprinting that that's that is such a measure of of of the intangible of they're trying hard on the Marie-Noelle. I know he played a different tactic in a different formation. But if you look at the Marino stats, I mean, they were only just ahead of the only team they were head of in the Premier League in terms of sprints most sprints was Fulham or most ground covered or whatever though head of everyone have guessed that, by the way on believable like he's turned around so many little things. Now, if you'll allow me to put on my Spurs Andy bitterness, pans, the here's the only thing I will say, and then I will go I will go immediately back into defect. It'd be one. Well, here's the thing is I saw a headline that says societas plan is coming together as. Manchester United defeat Spurs at Wembley. I'm sorry. It was the plan to lose five one Tottenham head at least six or seven chances one that United scored on. So like, I do think that we need to pump the brakes a little bit on throwing them in a parade after that performance. Yeah, they got the three points. So if you wanna ask the question of whether or not he passed his first true test since he took over after playing a run of poor opposition. How can I argue with the fact that yes, he did that got the points? But I mean like you watch the game JJ how many Tottenham this is the same Tottenham side that we talked about against Everton who were ruthless who it seemed like every single opportunity. They put on that they scored on. Sometimes you have days like that. I guess the soccer God's made up for it on a day like this when it's just like one opportunity after another either is from another planet, or it's kind scuffing one or son scuffing one or L Durell just putting kind of at two. Hey as feet. It was just I don't know. How you explain? It was just kind of one of those days for ton there. Build up. Play was brilliant at times, they're you know, intricate passing moves, look, I can't get on them. It was just best some bad finishing combined with some out of this world goalkeeping combined with one great counterattack from United. Yes. Spars looked every inch the well drilled welll unit. But and I don't wanna come down on cairn trippy. But when you're so much in control in your plan such a high line. What was he thinking of without pass because that's what United were waiting for and to give pug his credit? Andrew I believe if that is under Marino, he takes another touch. Instead, he made sure we got the ball out of with feet, and he whipped a perfect ball into the space on rash verd- who has been working on finishing wit or they're going to share. No, better master, no better Pupo on it's in the back of the net. No what I will say about Spurs. They peppered the gold all it takes for the floodgates open is for the bowl to be a few inches the other side of Davidoff. But everything everything seemed to be where he could get to it. And that was the story of the gif. Let's not bitterness against mine United. That's not being pro Spurs. That's just a fact what happened. It is what happened now. I will. I will come back, and I will now defend soul shyer because you say, you know, if that's PA under marine. So maybe takes other touch. It's not just rash. Verd- practicing his finishing or whatever it is that entire play the way that it went down. This is from Andrew Harare on Manchester United's website, he talks about soul siren the tactics that he implemented and how it just like perfectly set up that goal Harare says the manager told us that at the beginning of the game. It would be difficult to make sure passes. He told us it would be easier for us to switch the play. And to look almost without looking to the other side of the pitch to switch the ball. Because that is where we were going to find spaces. We scored like that. So thank you to the game plan as well. That was Harare talking about soul Shire his tactic coming to the game for sure, but it's also the. The manager Sola Shire having fit that they'll make does runs. I don't think there were making those runs under Marino. Because they never put the ball was going to get there. And Utica Marci. Al who could have falls Spurs chances. He could've opened the scoring when again trippy miscontrol the ball, and they break look it was it was a mixture of perfect game plan. And look you want look, general and soul. Fire social has proven that he's got a plan. He's brought in a good atmosphere into the into the locker room pussies also being lucky on that. This was his low-key birth yet. Now, let's talk a little bit more about this idea of momentum building behind him getting the job. Now, we talked to Craig Burley last week. And I asked him the question necessarily say well, it was kind of a leading question. I said, you know, does it really make sense that if social goes on and does all this great for United. Does it really make sense that he wouldn't even be considered in Craig set? Of course, that makes sense. It's social has no experience. He shouldn't Manchester. United should not entrust a guy like that. With them going forward. I get that side of it, certainly. But. I assume it's. Hypotheticals? But if they do continue, this sort of whatever this enthusiasm is that they're playing with it is it's working for them. They are they are a different side than what they were a month and a half ago. You know, if they go on some kind of European run in the Champions League, if they do find a way back into the top four if they go on some kind of FA Cup run. I don't know if any combination of those things happen. It's gonna be it's going to be very interesting because I don't think the decision is cut and dry as much as I love Craig as what Craig made it sound like last. No. And certainly when you're hearing rumors about much the United considering Garrett soak it his club CV is marginally better than than older gonna sell shares. And maybe it isn't because at least on Oleg or social has won championships with Molda the thing for me. Andrew is the test to calm, there will be safe, for example, PS g open open batter them, which I honestly don't think is going to happen though. That would be something that would be a huge problem for him. But say they were to get a result against. S g result at the end of February against Liverpool like a win that he will be in serious consideration. There's more to it than that, though would Edward look at him and say I've been pushed and press to have this kind of interlocutor between manager and myself on transfers on the direction of the club. And I need somebody who is steeped in the values of the style of play, and what Manchester United is or was under, sir. Alex, ferguson. Would there be a better person to make director of football than only gonna Sasha? That's an interesting thought to now, I definitely think that, you know, three games three bad results. And you will see him slide out of the picture. Oh, yeah. This could really change absolute. And that's why I'm loath to say, I know it was a great win against bars on I know, he's beaten the opposition put in front of I you can definitely feel the vibe improving around the club bought he it's gonna take a little bit more. But that might be just a win another round of the champions now to the court. Chorus of people out there who are saying he has no experience. He can't his first real job can't be United. I would kind of tell those people to look at that. And say is is what he's gaining right now. Does that not count? Like, this is now experience he is managing Manchester United right now he is going to be playing PS g in Champions League. And what's more? If you're worried about his selections and a transfer market or something like that. Okay. Fine. I could understand that. But what have we talked about with the United under Marino that it's not just about who mentioned the United want? It's about elite level players needing to want to come there as well. Right. We didn't think that that was going to be the case with Marino with what we saw happen. The guys like Papa players that caliber, you know, if social concern them back into a club that marquee players want to go to because they're playing a more open style. There seems to be a more fun feeling around the club. That's that's important as well, and the massive wages and prestigious Tober still going to count. If he engineers a top four finish and gets another round of the. Under his belt, what he will be one of the front runners for the job for sure. Now, I said I have to call myself out. I said at the start that there's no way to look at his appointment even in the interim as anything other than crazy mocked me. No, I suggested that maybe this could become a real. No, no, no. I mean when he got the job in the first place. It was a left field. Kind of. Let's just put a hero in very much like what Nottingham Forest or doing Martin Neilan, Roy Keane? No, given the job. Let's take someone from the past to give a feel good in a bad area. But are a bad moment for the club. But that doesn't mean it's not working, and it has worked new consider Robbie muster a trusted source of soccer knowledge. I like Robbie Mustoe. Here's what he said about it on NBC N if United if the wind verse Spurs enhances social chances of getting the job. Yeah. It does affect a thank you know, when I think he said pre-game, but the social Kamei himself, the number two choice. Now if anything between now and the end of season United. Would say, you know, what I don't care about anybody else. We won't this guy. The met would be remarkable. That would be remarkable like, I know it's tough to say right now. But I still think that that number one talk with Tino gotta go on and say like rash said this was different today. This was different. And he made a big change tactically positionally with Russia position. Lynn god. Now, that's that's tough to do when you've been going so well, and he said it interview on school philosophical situations. He did it to the first off it worked out rush. Scored a near the Spurs plays didn't when they had the opportunity so rush would of course, on the hair the main guys but social today with game plan particularly first off talks to him. What philosophical issues has been working on? That would be interesting to me calls. Macro goes over. He says take that strike with the outside of your boot. Okay. Also, what's your thoughts on Descartes? Could happen philosophical. He's right though. He's painted himself into the picture where he wasn't before. Yeah. Definitely. Let's talk about to heya 'cause he was obviously, I mean, this was as much of a man of the match performance as a keeper can can give you it was just one. Are you kidding me moment after another? It was more likely that a deflections was going to beat him. Something crazy. Are you know, someone gives away Lindelof are Phil Jones? These are gives away a penalty. Phil Jones fouls. Hurricane on that head or he's he's he's all over them. Any other place on the field? That is a free kick. It's just the I mean. Yeah, I was okay. I wasn't screaming for a penalty penalty for such a penalty. But anyway, Kane still got good contact, and yeah, he should've score should've buried it. Right. And also there was decision making like the Delhi chance whereas ruining through on gold. Why does he take that extra? Yeah. He's he's closing his own. I put himself in. A little too close. It was it was a game of chicken on day. Just read imperfectly look another day. That's two one three one. He's as good with his legs as any keeper I've ever seen. Yeah. On he he is thinking about some of the safety made like the one from out of her L. If he tries to go at that with his hand, it's lights underneath them. It's just brilliantly done. That's it's got to be just like how much how much is this instinct a lot of that's instinct, but it's also working on your work. I'm sure it has to be. Yeah. How about this stat? This has nothing to do with the Hayes skills. A keeper it has to do with my screaming at the television watching this game as this was all transpiring this blood pressure staff. Well it. Did you notice watching that game that he just took forever on every kickout? Yeah. Now, I actually have a number that can tell you how long he took this courtesy of Spurs statman on Twitter, forty five seconds. Oh, forty five seconds. Is that your guests? JJ nearly five percent of today's game. This was from over the weekend. Nearly five percent of today's game was spent waiting for data to take goal kicks ten goal kicks with an average of twenty six seconds per if that definitely came from the manager to four point eight one percent of the game was just spent waiting for him. But yeah. Var takes too long. Okay. But we'll spend five percent of game. Just watching guy stand there kickers boots against the ref Boca. Or even which was which was a tra- an abomination to refuse to get involved. They'll be talking about vire racial in books. I remember these really goalkeeper Lansdowne Road in a World Cup qualifier account. Remember the name? But what a clown. He did the same thing in a qualifier Artem went two-nil, Israel equalize and from two to onwards the guy soaked a life out of the game. In a way, I have never witnessed as bad as the Heo. This guy was on believable teeing up the bolts setting it on the grass thought took thirty five seconds alone. And I don't even mean it as like even if your tactics and husband if you're a neutral fan, though is like you wanna spend five percent of your game with that happening. I I blame the Spurs multiple boys in bulbs. They were off thrown. How dare you? They were on their game. I made specific notified quickly. They were getting the ball back in. I won't have that not on the show. I don't mean to take away from today though, he was phenomenal. Let's talk more about him now with one of our favorite guys to have on this program. Because anytime anything goalkeeper related comes up. You just lose your mind and start just like going through months of David priests tweets. Well, hang on. That's not true. And don't shame me in front of David price. We had David Preece on in the summer to discussing. Glint as well. So this isn't a new thing for us the point. It's a good point. He is one of our favorite guys to speak with you, hear them all over the place, various podcast, totally football show football weekly. I news talking about Warren can Brexit. And now he's on with us. David pre spec on the show, David what's up, man? How are you? Yeah. Of course, j just mentioned the World Cup. And I guess it's an interesting place to start in talking about David Hale for anyone who may be forgot how good of a keeper. He was after the World Cup where there was even talk of Spain maybe replacing him. I'd say that they were reminded over the weekend of just how great a player he is. I mean is he the best? I guess you could say the best in the league is the best in Europe right now. Do you know what? When when Vogel. Keep is now with about different styles and different saw Fluffy's house teams and nothing for his kind and far as style you see it's himself, and certainly on all black Madrid's the to keep is of that ilk. That's the the treat the moment. We know how how far goalkeeper his moved on sitting in the last five ten years as well. So it's all about the different styles. Just the same way of a predatory strike like said, you'll guero or you have an old round like dusky here, you have different styles. So it's it's sometimes it's still a little bit more difficult to compare. Now, you were talking stylistically, and I don't want to throw big Neville Southall into the conversation this early. But I think it's interesting. So I was listening to year ago on a wanna get your take on this Southall ranked lorries above Dahiya. For probably the very reason to heya stood out at the weekend was not he made so many saves with his feet, and he said that that is a marker of bad technique where I'm presuming you would disagree with that. Yeah. I mean, I don't know of you know, what? So how far removed Netherlands from from the game these days or whether we still caution Evan and somebody like some Nevoso volt school keep using, you know, the basics of goalkeeping never change. But I think just certainly a of the past few years as being a trend towards training, Sears with your faith. And and a mentioned this in the piece I did for for the times to that where it's the goal. Keep stunts. Traditionally where we we told I in Britain solve your feet solve. Shield with the part kinda gives you gives you know, a solid base. So you can you can get to everything where certain situations you have to throw with. And the fact that you have to try to get everything you try to put things in your favor. So if somebody's coming on angle one the one it's a very tight angle for them things in your favorite base. So if you cover the whole of the goal, you won't be you don't want to be so crouching down one of Huns all trying to to make sure gets out little Huns because should top plus school cat strike is all the opportune to lift the the roof of the net. Now, you've seen soja grabble due. Do. Hey, you've seen all the people. Do it's to to listen the season. And it's it's it's it's difficult fall for everything. So why not just give yourself a neutral position neutral position. And just just you. Feats to block the bowls that could I think it's just a mole efficient with saving it. And also when you get. And when you do get contact with the bowl, you more likely to get the ball out of being the with from the strike on combing. If you use your fate that's a harder surface to hidden to defeat the ball with them. The some of what I've been wondering about from having watched that game. And I don't mean this as a slight today, but how much of it was great goalkeeping and how much of it was just poor finishing this. I I was I'm kinda the man the same is people. Not what you've got. That's the routine saves. That's he was he was expected to make. I always think buck to USA against Belgium when the Tim Howard's middle sixteen saves, and he you know, he was loaded as a national hero where mitt to three saves extended him or the other than just routine saves this simple. I think with the Hayes. Before the weekend. You've taken without his position and decision. Making 'em was was perfect obsolete. Full all the way through the game. I think about that Toby out avails save he moves into position early up Naples. Daria time predict more school, hop happen and things in his failings Pia del from dividend. There was a big retirement news today. And I of course, check your Twitter. Like, Andrew says, I always do and you're little bit surprised that we're going to be saying goodbye to pet are check at this point. What shocked you about that announcement? Just the fuck. That's despite that's you know, kind of common misconception. That's you know, that this steep decline all the schools as I could still do a very good job full top sides, much primarily outside the premise league. He's still very sold a goalkeeper. And I think the criticisms of combs with less sitting three seasons being down to the to what's being them and the and the lack of consistency and stability in from them. And. I think that's a comb on defense, which was walk sold. Chelsea where when you choose jobs play a long time. But silly him in John Carey in so. -fensive disarray time to Chelsea and that doesn't really help them. It's all so I think you know, you you look the stocks still holds with with with the best keepers and top keep around you. And I think he could have done it. It's two full years. And it's credits him, maybe taking take step buck. Maybe it's a motivation thing maybe willing just to to sit in the background and be a really good for somebody else, which he could do full of three or four seasons. But again, he could play around forty fifty games as more problem puff the or the CVS head injury out news being look with the within long-term injuries. Anyway, it's interesting you say that about how his stats continue to match up with other gray keepers. Do you look at that? And think that maybe arsenal made a mistake in jumping the gun to replace that maybe some of that money on Leno could have been used on defenders. Instead, or did you see something and check where maybe he was. Deteriorating and shouldn't have been a number one anymore. No. I certainly think that's you know, a right choice to bring in competition for him. And so certainly if they want to successor, and as successive, and that was the right thing to do with a the knows the right choice. I'm still not to show not at boats. It's said it even with his feet. You know, he looked I think sometimes you looks uncomfortable. He looks bit cumbersome, and maybe not as fluid as many as you say these days and people forget, you know, he can't the goalkeeping in these teenage years, you've sent a full before that, of course, and pressure. They put in there. I would actually be again to his defense because some of the decisions that defends with tickets. It's possible Buckingham and positions. They take to receive the ball again is known existence. And you say the the it was uncomfortable as he was taking it. So it's that was. Was a bit Hauch and hopefully all the the criticism. His with David that we have you in our on the podcast right now is kind of timely seeing as where you're from. Everyone can tell your accent Sunderland till I is causing. I don't know what you call it a star over here, but people of being fascinated by it on net flicks. They've watched it. We've been getting a lottery action to it. And in the in the wake of Netflix drop in this series. There have been a few players come out Kevin Kilbane in particular has talked about the pressure of playing at Sunderland. And it's kind of curious because we don't see them up there as as a as a massive football club. Where pressure is everywhere. But I was just curious to get your take on that. Is it really that kind of hothouse of football up? There are the fans really that kind of almost intrusive and suffocating. You know, like of friends so who played for many sauce in the US left and whether they. They will coastal going supermarkets, you know, 'cause people the people just them and criticize them, and and I found throat my career, and you often find the best funds son being the worst the most go because there's no in between to basil and phenomenal show support. Sometimes the criticism can be exactly the same the opposite side as well. But I think what's what the guys that said full seventy produced. And directed if no stripped away, and what is that someone is about the funds? The biggest strengths of the club is its funds and the people of the e because it's you know, a Goldbach most weekends over and visit family of adult. Eliza barron. You know, the really great dealing someone's. It's a great town as good city with grid people. There isn't a great deal that it's a prosperous city as it once was so you take away that's football cooled and you take away Nissan, which which is the big of of jobs in the city. There's there was a great deal that and it's football Maine's Shula Butch area. You see in the in the savings that I think I came across well, and for me, I I should have been a, but actually I did a couple of told you hit interviews the at the start and. And I I just I just couldn't keep it open. You know, when when they dock, and so I couldn't I couldn't be there. And at the time when I was in order to have us come on things. He just wouldn't it could have been a real cau- crush and a real disaster for the club. But the said the fuck that focused on the funds and the people behind the scenes at the club thing. That's what she'll the great strength of. I'm here as you talk about, you know, people coming up to you in the grocery store and things like that you ever find yourself just pumping gas up in Sunderland. And a guy wants to criticize you for a goal, you let in I mean is that like a thing you could relate to from your time there shortly? Yeah. Me a the solve the ups and downs of of any play, you know, of, you know, equal through touches. And certainly when I was opened up at they know they were very similar funds. Abidine Scotland Ray, they you know, when I first went didn't time the tables and Kim my call on goal is. To what on the flipside? Remember, the first time I ever went to New York. I was in like they might be like a Virgin Megastore Times Square. My and deemed find came off things on he asked me for my autograph Times Square. The the funny thing was that of a few peel, rabble soul. And almost a sign about thirty autographs of to sign his autograph too. Because so many they must have thought I was somebody that was famous. So so for the young fun of a second Salah is my fifteen minutes famine in New York, I think are selling Aberdeen's fan base in New York short. It goes typically Yankee Aberdeen giants usually how it lays out. We'll thanks so much for joining us, man. We're always interested to pick your brain on all things go keep related and Sunderland related to soccer related David priests. Always thanks, man. So the story I was referring to Kevin Kilbane was that he would be in store in the shops. Just like David said and someone of thunder fan would look into his basket and go you don't wanna beaten that. But the best story he told was he was out with his wife for dinner, ours girlfriend at the time thing he's twenty one or twenty two and he sits in for dinner, and I don't know nice. The restaurant was but a Sunderland fan shakes his hand. And you think that's fine. Takes a picture. I don't think Kevin was that long at the club. And he sits beside kill ban and his girlfriend for twenty five minutes. All I kill ban was like why what do you do? And he couldn't he felt like he couldn't say anything to the fan. You kinda can't especially if you're young player at you've only just know he had a miserable time he had. He had only a few. I'd say Goodman's there. He did not enjoy time it sooner than he was much happier at Everton when he went there and the fans used to get on his back. But imagine that you're at dinner. What do you say people need to have some sense? They don't they feel as if they own you on Sunderland's one of those towns. So I heard all these stories coming out after Sunday's until I die in a hat to ask David. And he corroborated my evidence. Yeah. So our thanks to him has always loved catching up with him before we move on jayjay. I did want to mention about Tottenham because the big news today was that the MRI of hurricanes ankle came back. Is that the same ankle? He injured before the I'd have to look. All right. Okay. What? But the news was it was about as bad. I think as as could have been. Yeah. Did reveal ligament damage, and he's going to be out for at least a month. They're saying sometime in March the expected to return, which is a brutal blow to them not only because they're coming off a loss in a kind of a demoralizing loss against Manchester United. It's a brutal blow also because they're losing son to the Asian Cup. He was he left the club after the United game. They're still kind of dealing with. Injuries. Now. I know I think Eric dire is starting to train again. I think Victor Wanyama is getting closer to returning. But, you know, those guys aren't strikers and for sun and Cain to both be gone at the same time with some really important matches coming up you're talking about missing now, the Champions League matches against Borussia Dortmund, some presume in your intake goes no her then you can't sell them. I mean, it seemed like he was halfway out the door. Then he goes and scores thousand goals against Tranmere. Rovers and he works his way right back and disperse good graces, but they really don't have a choice now. And I don't know what they do. I mean as Delhi alley now expected to kind of move into more of an a central attacker spot is he gonna play up top with maybe Lucas Moore who missed the match over the weekend through injury himself is someone going to come into the club. You know, it's so funny. How? You're right. That's a natural thought for normal fan to have. But when you're fan of this club that like if somebody comes in. That's that is bonus that is extra credit that is not even like a flicker of thought in my head because of the way this club is now seemingly operating so on just looking at the guys who were there, and I guess it's going to be deli. Lucas Mora renting some sort of combination of those guys. You know, I loved Elliott alley. I love Lucas Mora. I don't think a ton of Fernando. You're anti at this stage in his career. I mean is this is this a group that like are they as Tino going to just have to change completely how they play when they're going to, you know, take on Dortmund. Can I put an M there? Sure. Who's being on the bench and being featured in squads trained with first team a bit put his I mean, super young Troy pirate. He does play center forward. All right. I mean, I saw some talk of Callum Wilson's name being thrown around from born Muth Eddie house says they're not gonna let him leave on. They'll hold is fake to the fire in a way. That would be which means that. It's nothing will come of it. Yeah. That's a name that I love that would be great. I think really highly of him. But man, this is just really really bad timing. It feels like they're in a bit of danger zone. Because look the I the price for them. Now is not like stop the talk about them being a part of a title race or whatever because they're not. And that's that's okay. But top four is essential. They have to like they're always going to be a club whose key players are in flux are they going to leave for Madrid. Or they gonna stay. If you want to have any hope of keeping these guys there needs to be Champions League football that new stadium next season. And if there's not it becomes harder to convince Ericsson not to go to Real Madrid or Pocchettino not to go to United. For him to Real Madrid. You know, it's this is this is like a dangerous time right now. I'm just thinking cheap. Strikers January who you going to get a throwback in my head. I just go right back to Louis Saja, and like names like that even got noise like this this generation, I mean that was kind of still this generation who's like a guy like that. What do you any? What's outta boy Oropesa? Yeah. Surely, we can get crouch e back in there. Right. You need someone. Yeah. I don't know. What do you think? I mean in my like, no, your this is serious. Right. It's it's it's extremely worrying. Because I mean, it's. All I can think of is does does daily alley. No placenta forward has. He the no st- is he can he score at the pet required. Because in the past when when came was injured last year, sewn came in on on did an unbelievable job to bridge that gap and son is not going to be there. So it's unbelievable. I don't know. I honestly think if they can make some kind of loan deal or do something they've got to go into the market. A really I feel that strongly. Boy, it's tough to go in though, when you're already when you operate the way they do. And now you're entering the market from a perspective of having no leverage at all nothing. What do you what do you do? Here's a trivia question for you. You mentioned Harry Kane and son to players who were leaving what percentage of Tottenham goals. Do you think they've scored this season sixty five percent? I mean, come on. Let's be real. It's forty seven percent neutered that question. I was going to say fifty and I thought oh he's asked because it's higher. I mean, I thought forty seven was high forty-sevens mockery of the whole thing. And now, we Lucas more knows your time. He was permanently player the month for the first month of the yet him get him down the Senate just needs to be healthy. That's the problem right now, we move on Spurs not the only club in north London. Going through a bit of a rough patch right now as arsenal lose a game. Yeah. I've got some things to say about this later in the podcast. I saved the arsenal chat because it's much more than the loss of west time. Oh, oh, my God much more than that with the international birthday. Boy Declan ROY scoring the winner. So are you saying that we we should table? This maybe table at yet because we can talk about Arsenal's woes later on in the podcast. I wouldn't want to upset the flow. This is what what do I do is unprecedented down has been invaded. I don't know. I guess we know too much snow stuff. At the end rake go to break, everyone go to break. Bye. Eight. His. Crossed the cycling. Say. The fate of because. Delhi? Sorry. Did we not spend enough time on that earlier? We had to relive those saves any excuse for me to get a bit of chemical brothers in there. Arlo white on the call way. Did you see I thought it was actually really cool what they did on Saturday. Oh here he comes. I'm Jay Jay soccer is a sport to be taken. Seriously. If you're trying to have fun. You're wrong business. They did the thing where they go on the mopeds between the grown awesome target done at grit guys school. All the content all for the clicks. The back of a moped. I'm lead. What brings you joy in life this being an act snark. I know that's not you have a mailbag. We do to soccer pod caught off site. Pottage Email dot com. It's not very timely opener. Sean Roden with Harry Kane out to Maritz, you think Spurs should go out and pick up shit retail. And do you believe he could thrive under potch? There's no way West Ham are going to give Shittu retail to Spurs. This is not happening, and he's agreed terms. With valencia. I'm West Ham of blocked that move as well. So Chitra he'll going anywhere. We'll probably have a lot more to do with what happens with Markle and out of each whose brother has come out and told him how he would very much like to go to China to the Chinese Super League to win titles, which is. Which is. Can you? I'm sorry. Can you say that one more time I America out of its his brother wants Marco to go to China to win titles? All right. Sam narrow more love the pot, and I have two questions for you. I'm an avid fan of football. And I've always been a supporter for Barron Munich never fully committed to an English team. First question moving to New York on the twenty third. I'm wanted to know where you guys recommend to watch my football games. Preferrably a place that has the English pub kind of ambience the barley corn don't own is a very good one. It's an arsenal bar. But it's got that ambience. I always say Caraher is because the food is good, and you can go in there when Liverpool aren't playing and it still it's still good legends football factory. Yeah. I've always enjoyed Baker street Baker street and his another good place. Good food to second question. If Thomas motor were to leave Barron and go to one of the big sixty PL teams, which team do you think he would most help? Well. Golly. This is just like a Spurs trace seriously, though, I can't think of anyone more perfect for just like, I know he's kind of been, you know, off his game slightly from what Byron fans are probably used to. But God would kill for him right now. I think they're win percentages is highest when he plays deal. So ROY love the podcast. It's something I look forward to as I drive home. Not knowing grit deal about MLS your analysis resulted in me, no taking a greater interest. This is a bonus on top of your European analysis. Helped me choose a team on your sport. Komo news Spurs by from Australia. Well, an Australian listener wants to select an MLS club. I thought he'd wanted like an elite team we probably I would assume has has one I would say New York rebels there. They're bits Versi Denver green. Love the pod. With Tim spear is talking about mal about Wu's. My highschool soccer team took a trip to England joined the world's, sir. Excuse me. I'm just messing this up joined the summer of my junior year, circuit twenty ten and one of the stops was at the Malla new stadium for a wolves preseason game against Athletic Bilbao stadium was packed. And we all left us, huge wolves supporters. It was our first time as Americans experiencing European football and parson, and we were all blown away by the passionate fans just for preseason game. PS also founded the Michael casual is the voice of Lampe jarred watch. The Don Greco. We can't reveal have you can listen that's good detective work by whoever that is to bias nyc. I think it'd be helpful. If you had an upload sheduled for the pods, people aren't happy that they don't know when they'll come out. That's what that's fair on. That is fair. There's a need for emergency pot. Of course, which I love ha ha ha that's fair. We should try and do that. We will not do are. We are we to inconsistent in like in the days in which we do. I'd record every day. If it was my choice, but it's not so well, no, we are where either choose day Wednesday Thursday, and we're the occasional Monday. You just listed for the five sometimes unafraid if Landon Donovan comes Ota retirement again. So yeah, that was helpful Jeff Brokaw after watching Sunderland till I die on Netflix. I have felt a responsibility to bring them back to the Premier League. For some reason. I couldn't get KDB to spend a season on loan with me and he's playing championship manager. And he has them top of the EFL league one. But we don't. What setting it's on? So we don't know we record on Tuesday or Wednesday or sometimes the Thursday or maybe it's a Monday. I mean, it's like a friend of mine had a dog, and it's it's kind of sad. But the dog got something in his eye and had to lose his eye. And so when my friend told us that we were like, oh my God. That's that's awful, and my friend tried to justify it by saying, oh, it's really not that big a deal just like picture me. If I only had one eye and some hair over it. And I was like would be incredibly Jordan. Oh, I don't know about the point of that. Joel bronze sent us a picture from Wembley at the weekend. He was at the game. He sent his to really nice pictures one from outside the ground and one from inside the ground ice. I Andrea million. Osceola soccer pot, incoming red card play precise. Please for the political musings of Mr. Neil Warnock. I don't know why politicians don't do what the country wanted if I'm only the referendum. You know? And now we see different politicians and everybody else trying to Fulton it way Reaser said again behind you know, what did we have a referendum in the first place? I can't wait to get out of them. If I'm honest, I think we'll be better out to the bloody thing in every aspect tell with the rest of the world. Football watch as well. Yeah. Absolutely. This is a man if you haven't seen the video footage. This is a man saying to hell with the rest of the world while beside behind him is a sign thing. Visit malaysia. I want Neil Warnock to go and compare his pay packet now at Cardiff from what it was at Sheffield United when he came up twelve years ago, I would say dollars to donuts he is doing a lot better now through the TV deal, which has come about by the massive interest worldwide in the Premier League. And because some of the best players in the world can play there. This idea that England and English football will be better. If we fall his out, send them home is nonsense on the air talking about quotas. Andrew quotas on Premier League teams it can only damage the game. But that was new Warnaco Brexit, boy, he has really become a shockingly prevalent fixture on this show the last Larry we he is wormed his way in and we can't get rid of like who knew three weeks ago when when we talked about his comments about Spurs, and Wembley and the new stadium that like that would now become like the first of many weeks in a row where he would say something ridiculous. It's not political for me if he. Voted Brexit for Brexit for leave and bats his position. That's fine. My issue is that your soul blind to what you know, the influx of foreign players on the global game. You can't tell the world to bugger off. Well, apparently, you can well, maybe you can't you're Neil Warnock. We got so many tweets over this. Basically this is Lampert. Jared. Watch spy gate addition. On a keeping an eye on. Leaves United had a very good tune victory over Franklin Pierce, Derby County, but the lead into the game was overshadowed by spy gate, Andrew Bella check in really, Bella check in style tactics. Where Marcelo Bielsa who apparently has used this as common practice throughout his career in management sent a spy to county training ground to watch them train into film and record them and Frank was not best pleased about this in that spoke to Conor McNamara of the BB of BBC radio five live about the whole thing. When the so it's met earlier in the season back in August USA spec. Your club suspected that. There was someone supervising your training inspiring interfering with US Davis. I'm guy was. Kitman sewer line in in the Bush's film in China. You've played big teams in this country, you flayed abroad as well. Have you ever heard of anything like this before? No, not really I'm innocent people on positive emotion on information. I've never heard of training ground move ends. And as replies broke into private land to shine. And I'm not heard of that minute. He's been doing this since he was manager of Argentina. I mean years and years and years splaying position. Well, yeah. So. Mike what you will how much we walk about this. Because for me. It's not right. And i'm. A big fan from the follow of Baosteel book from room. Baseline cloudy today. But. That's how uprise. Then that's how he does it. So yeah, really strange not a common practice in English football. I would imagine the dissemination of information from Toco, I'm sure goes on. I'm sure people know somebody might give them a call while of being like. Leads are always beat leads are always beaten Darby. They were so much better. Frank manpower was magnanimous after the game. He said we did not play well enough and leads were much much better than those as they were in the first game when they wouldn't four one. But it's it's still it's not ethically grit to for be able to do this the if EFL of launch an investigation, they're not one hundred percent sure if he's broken any rules, but it's kinda not in the hosiery put it the spirit of the game in England to do something like this, or at least not to send a spy in that manner. I mean, what are you like, what are you seeing set-pieces free kick routines? You're also probably seeing that as Lampard said before pre-match before the game will how're you Wilson's not gonna play for us. So they would have noticed that probably would have known that. I mean, it just seems so insane to like send a guy into the bushes with pliers cutting through fences. Like what what is this? Don't pretend like it didn't happen in this country. And it was insane. When the patriots were had cameras set up around stadiums to spy on signals like this is this like bonkers territory is that for the mail one. Final thing. Harry Wilson tweets us Austin just got their team in MLS. It's looking pretty grim for me in Detroit who will get the remaining spot in your guys opinion. First of all. Austin did get their their spot. Those in announcement would Precourt Garber and Alexi Lalas was there and the whole thing, and it was a glowing crest which was very nice on good for Austin. I would say to Harry Wilson, you have got a team who are going to be playing in the NPS L pro very soon come on like, I know, you know, what he's asking though, all I'm not going to get my big shiny fancy molesting go support them until you do get one. But this might have been their best chance. I don't know. I don't act like he's an ingrate for asking a question. Like that that I'm sure there's cities across the country who also love to have an MLS team Detroit of a really cool thing going on there. But he wants it's not absurd to wanna chance to have that team compete at the highest level. How can you not see that? I just I they play friendly games against European sides. They put listen to your ten thousand people regularly at Detroit Kim's, that's pretty cool, man. That's a that's grown level. I'm not saying, it's not cool. But I completely understand his desire to take that to the next level. And have those those kind of atmospheres be repeated against the likes of L AFC in the Sounders and Portland like how. You're you're being just willy. Insta- institute horse support your local clubs. We always we always, you know, push people to want to do that. But so don't have been Harry Wilson was it's a great question. I'm sorry. That JJ didn't take time for a team that doesn't exist. Put your money where your mouth is going to support your local team and also campaigned institute promotion relegation, then you can get to play the Seattle's you didn't tell me that. This question was coming. But off the top of my head who the other cities in contention sent Louis Nashville Louis. Sorry, louis. Yeah. I'm trying. I'm trying to remember. Now. I know that with Austin getting a club. It seemed like San Antonio was probably off the table Phoenix with the Phoenix rising. I feel like I'm forgetting an obvious one. I don't know if I remember it. I'll say it before the end of the show. But yeah, that's a fine question at CO soccer pot on Twitter caught off side pot. gmaiLcom JJ have a what to watch for. But it's very quick if you have something on any of these games. Stop me Liverpool. Crystal Palace liberal. With their one no victory. Maintain four points up yet. Let's see Saturday twelve thirty arsenal. And Chelsea I won't say much because I guess apparently we have more stuff on arsenal. That is yet to come was a lot of news today. That's off the field. But not good Sunday. Eight thirty AM Huddersfield town in Manchester City, JJ, David Wagner, by mutual consent is no longer Huddersfield town's manager, and you just you just can't help. But wonder what if what if this had happened say five months ago, but you would want the US men's national team playing the style of football Huddersfield plan this season or even lassie's? I mean, maybe they play that style because they have handicapped, and, you know, look certain he did a good job with a what not much resources. Yeah. And I think that you know, even though things were going poorly. The fact that not only did he gain promotion with them, but manage to keep them up. I think that it wasn't. He will forever be a revered figure there that was America last few games at the end. The last season. Incredible. The point at Chelsea I remember watching that game thinking, this is this is such a box of the wall effort. I wonder where he goes now what what is his future? He is in the Marco Silva category where he will get a job, and maybe even a lower tier top-flight job again because he's got such good reputation for working the Ourika with very little Sunday eleven AM Fulham and Tottenham JJ. Did you see who just signed at Fulham crazy Ryan bobble? What's crazy is that he's only thirty two because I feel like if you told me it was fifty two I probably would believe ten years almost outside of the Premier League after he left the and went on this kind of wandering journey. He's been signed from Besiktas Turkey. Look you've seen him, particularly when he's been on your screens for the Dutch national team in those friendly games and and nations the games he he's a good player. But Andrea if you were making a short list of guys to help get this team out of the mire. He would not be honest. No. And you know, clearly there there is this feeling of sort of like grasping at straws here. And it's kind of a hate to go back on things I said before the season, but it's kind of the way Fulham operated in the summer transfer window big names names of people familiar with Andre Shirlow, L Calum chambers. Like, I don't know if this is like that, by the way, let's just speak while we can about surely goal tweaking that goal a give it goal of the season. They own believable technique to take Puc that bowl from this going volley it into the top corner. The fact that he's knocking wrong to relegation team is bizarre second minute. And then how do they go and lose it? Just feels like it's it's the story of foam season two own goals in the span of three minutes. Only had no shot on Harrogate. You gotta fan, sport wise. That's that's that's winning. The burn leeway and league JJ Saturday ten fifteen AMRO Madrid and severe with Real Madrid looking up at severe right now Madrid fourths Avia are in third. They are tied on points. So this could be moving day for Madrid as they looked to inch their way up closer and closer. I don't look I'm never going to foresee a path to them catching Barcelona. But I don't know if they care about finishing second. It's just a weird optic to look at that table. See them in fourth. I don't know. I guess if there's any fear of them finishing outside a champions like top four place because Alvis is right behind Real Madrid. Just a point back. So yeah, that's Saturday. Ten fifteen AM should be a fun one red card. Can I go I hear you may? Okay. My red card goes to Murchio sorry manager of Chelsea a few days ago. He was talking and discussing his disdain for VAR fine. Whatever that's not what this about. Disagree. But whatever, but he was then asked about how he felt it performed in the World Cup which prompted this response. Sorry says quote, I didn't see anything in the World Cup. I didn't see a match in the World Cup. I don't like the national team because there isn't anything to learn. It is usual position every coach thinks like me, it is unusual to say it it is impossible to arrange a team very well in thirty days every team in the world. Couple lose against the top level club teams in every match. I think that is normal because in a club you have time to organize a team. But in the national team, you have no time. So it is very difficult to see an organized team in the euros or the World Cup. What joyless arrogant? I'm joyless comment. Okay. Fine. You're smarter than all of us little peons who enjoy the World Cup for the sheer fun of us. Brainless fools who don't know our foot from our face to think JJ that we would watch soccer for reasons other than gaining knowledge, and maybe just fun and like patriotism, and you know, just the World Cup is fun. But no one is calling it the the the elite soccer competition, by the way to Rangatira in thirty days. That's half the fun of it. That's point throws up results like Belgium, three Japan to like. Yeah. This. Thank you. This is not a revolutionary comet. We all understand this. But like to to think that like there's nothing to be taken from the World Cup. I don't believe that either. I just thought I was him being cornered 'cause vire worked quite wet at the world, and that's same cornered. And he's gotta get outta here and say, I didn't watch it. I hate international. Soccer. What have I said? Now, I don't know you seem pretty convincing to me. But like it's joyless feels like a guy who's like jaded, and you know, on his shouldn't be because he I mean, it's only twenty years ago. He was a Bank manager is he that guy in a room. Like, if I were to pull out like, you know, I love like a kit Kat bar, and like IBM join it and you'd say like all man that looks good. Can I have one and he'd be over there saying, you know, how many calories are in that? He's just that guy. He shouldn't be that guy because he left banking the boringest job to be a full-time coach and has been very successful. He should be full of the joys spring. Yeah. What do you got? Oh, arsenal arsenal arsenal. Great work reporting. From some ESPN heads today, according to Rafeh, honing Stein arsenal head of recruitment Sven, MS tat is on the way out the door after only year in the role. He had been appointed by Ivan Gazeta's who has no at Milan former head of football relations, rose and alleys. Was promoted to head of football with business dot reporting directly to him according to sources, sin deformed, director of football up our Sloan favorite recruitment policy based on his extensive network of context throughout Europe. When business dot had been tasked by ZD's to follow the kind of analytical and stats based approach. That's all nineteen year old midfielder Mattia newsy joined from French second division job Laurie. Twenty two year old Uruguayan international. Lucas Tara a rifle from some Doria, both of whom have been successes in my view and double-whammy Gabrielle McCarty almost Symon taniwha dropped this article explaining why Amri said rather curiously last week that he could only make loan signings. In January and short refers to the decisions made last January on the money pumped into signing a bomb Yang McAteer Jons contract and re signing Ozil only one of the three of these moves have worked out, and it's a three year plan. That's going to see them hemorrhage one hundred fifty nine million dollar and if they sell os. Zil? They're never getting back the value. No, no. These guys are all in their late twenties. And that's why Aren Ramsey had to go. So you're looking at this here. I am re has no honeymoon period. He what he has I guess, but he's going to have to make the best of this. And this challenge for top four with what he's got. He's going to have to prove himself as a top manager this pretty dire stuff. These contracts are not nearly in their final stages. That's a lot of money to go out. When will ask they'll be able to sell again on a point that's made by Gabrielle Mikati in his piece is that it's not like cranky, flashed the cash, even when they have a lot of money. This is yes, it's bad you want. If you watch that team against West Ham at the weekend. They are short three four five defenders, maybe you wouldn't have necessarily thought. Now, I know that those are big name players. But like would you have thought that it would debilitate the club for at least a year moving forward? The money is owned believable the wages. I'm by the way, they only hear about his movie money being injected into clubs and arsenal. Or one of the richest clubs in the world. I mean, but there within the I guess they're operating within the constraints of of of the club itself of what the owner wants to do on. This just doesn't jive also was interro nine million. And he wanted twenty million a year, and they gave him close to that. According to the article. He doesn't play it's wild. It's obsolete. Oil and you're wondering if he's going to get the crack of the whip he thought he'd get up the club doesn't doesn't seem like it right now caught off sides man of the match JJ. My man of the match is Petter check. We talked about him a little bit earlier with David Preece, but I've got some more and we're gonna play. Check trivia dots. That's unfair. Why these are all with the exception of maybe one of these. These are eminently get I'm just not in. Okay. Go on. I have read known of the of going to say eulogies to check. He's not dead. But I've I've read known of the the tributes to him. So I'm not up on my stats. He will be retiring at the end of the season, by the way, this is not an immediate retirement. He's gonna play the rest of the year. All right here, we go check has two hundred and two clean sheets all time. That's most in primarily history. Who's number two on that list? Peter schmeichel. No, David, James. David James played till he was forty across how many jobs as they say in baseball. He's a compiler who are you mad at he's a compiler number two better. Check is one the primer league's golden gloves award four times. It's the award given out for keeper with the most clean sheets and a season this award started in oh four oh five by the way. I should say that could help you that can help you. He's won this award four times. One other keeper has also wanted four times. Can you name that keeper? A little tricky. Now vendors are no now when you say it's not like, what am I supposed to do with that? Is that your answer? Or are you cheating on I? Joe hart. Joe hard, by the way, Burnley have one three on the bounce. It's been drawn just saying number three Pedder check. Where's protective headgear? Of course after scary collision with this player from back in two thousand six Stephen hones. That's correct of reading accident. Marino called him a wolf you're on the board number four Chelsea signed Pedder check from this French club in two thousand four who know that. I don't know Ren stat Ren Ren. And last, but not least JJ Chelsea defeated Byron Munich on penalties in the two thousand twelve Champions League final check play the role of hero in this game saving one penalty in extra-time and another one in the penalty. Shootout. Can you name the Byron players who had those penalties? Safe muller? No rebury, no sake. Oh god. Sick leave retr- drew. The penalty wasn't Twining. He missed in the penalty shoot up. It wasn't wasn't say. All right. I'm blanking. So in extra-time redrew penalty drug, but took down rebury iron Robin had his penalty save. It was a meek pathetic attempt. Oh that was it was a dribbler wasn't. It was awful. And then in the penalty shootout if each oldish had his penalty sale, right? I remember that. No. Yeah. There you go Petrocelli trivia you did. Well, I had a lot of trivia surrounding the question, but not the actual I love when you say, it's not Vander Sar like, okay. Hey, what do you have my man in a matches United States, youth international? Charlie Kelman who scored from inside his own half on his professional debut in England playing for Southend and the third tier which is league one cattleman lob. He didn't lob I'm reading from an ESPN ours. I mean, it's not a way line. It's hard to call. It a lot. He absolutely painted, right? Over the Plymouth goalkeeper in the second minute of stoppage time if you could write a goal a spectacular goal in your debut that will be but it wasn't enough to prevent south losing three two on Saturday. This into the audio. There's no commentary the best thing about this is the thwacks of when he hits the ball. You can tell. Good for you. Seventeen own believable. What a story. Well, here we go. Now, a new young player for us to be obsessed with. Yeah. 'cause you're gonna start watching league will and maybe I will chance. Absolutely. You know about it, by the way, the goalkeeper did not cover himself and glory. But but did he lose sight of the ball like his dive at the end where are you guys doing? But you're not remember Steve Harper when job Alonzo did his from the halfway that was pathetic too. I mean, usually like if a guy is going to score from the halfway line beyond like, a goalkeeper never really going to cover himself glory. Well, no Beckham nailed Neil Sullivan. That was perfect. There was no comedy dive Beckham's just measured at perfectly the one that I felt always felt bad for. I don't when Tim Howard scored his the way the wind took that ball. And just like put it over hired Robinson. Wasn't it? Was it Paul Raut? No Paul Robinson scored. Well, he scored excuse me. Here was I got the hot here. We'll listen to it. See this. Don't. Who take the? That was ridiculous. Yeah. I mean, it was got us did. Yeah. And to Howard's credit. He like he almost looked angry and said afterwards his he had been on the other side of that once before. So he knows how it felt. So he wasn't going to celebrate. So. Yeah, there there you have it. It's it's the goalkeepers union. They just wanna look after each other, which which is kind of nice. Hey, that's it my friend beefy beefy podcast. Yeah. Really was I enjoyed it thoroughly. I hope all of you out there as well. Remember, if you get the chance rating us on I tunes goes a long way if you wanna get on there and give us a little five stars can only help and people have been doing that. Really? But yeah, it's been very nice, very nice. I would like more much more demanding. But I do appreciate it also, my friend. I'm going to demand. One thing of you. You can't stall on this rap battle no longer. What about battle is happening next week? No one is asking for absolutely known as. Yeah. But maybe we should take that as a sign we're doing it full are not shy about telling us what they want us to do. And no one cares about this. All right. Well, are you going to set a challenge for them or you're gonna say like, no some kind of likes? We'll look we said, we'd do it will do it. But I'm not in any rush, quite frankly. All right. Are you? Well, I've got some nice Brennan Rogers look up the two of us only one has provided this he PL back more. So don't make it seem like I'm dodging. You are recording artists technically, hey, this was fun my friend enjoy games the rest of the week. There's an FA Cup replay tomorrow Newcastle today, by the way at bears mentioning which is good for them a bit of joy Tyne. Yup. To you. I say take take care.

Gab and Juls: How Solskjaer is changing Manchester United's DNA

"The happy monday. I'm gabby jewels. It's the gaba jewish show. We have quite a show for you. Because we'll be talking a big clash in the bundesliga between livesey and and beef albay dortmund. We'll be talking to the bank this But i at the top given that was the to the fa cup. The bigger stories out there So we turn to a big man the day after his birthday yon olga fjortoft and we'll be talking some gunar social from norwegian to another now john i wanted to get you on because like all social as a player i had the opportunity to speak to him in numerous zones in the past. He was always very polite. Came across as very media trained. Didn't say much without saying anything very professional. And i contrast his approach is united manager with the two managers before him and marina and louis fan. Hal and his approach is completely different. Obviously you've known this guy for many years. Is this his personality is he. Does he does he. Does he assume that look. I'm united manager. I want to bring these professional qualities to the table. Rather than perhaps going to war like fun hal marino sometimes felt they needed to do Or is this or is this personality towards the outside world. But i think first of all. It's it's about a lot about his polite guy who has Not like all other allegiance like myself will always afrin opinion and all that kind of thing but i think that i think that's sometimes it's been underestimated who you come after this time. Manchester united needed. That's kind of manager after fungal marina. They needed that's kind of personality of their manager. Wanted to to get the mentioned united. Dna hundred percent clear. I think never underestimate that. He feels safety from insight will Support him glazes will support him. He has always also the support from sir. alex ferguson. so he doesn't have to do a much of playing gaming in the media because he no. He's quite secure of of the mandate teahouse esa manchester united manager. And that's good enough for him and on you called the path and he doesn't care. He wants to do a job for manchester united. He got the monster dna and he wants to symbolize that. Now i think that's that's that's a really really key points. I think we've been the media sometimes. Forget because obviously he started off really well then things went really badly now. The reality is if they get a point against burnley. They'll go into the clash at the weekend against liverpool top of the table like legit top of the table. Not join top but number one in the table. Which i think is is pretty remarkable. Because i don't know how long it's been but it certainly feels like it's been a very long time but at the same time though this this internal support. If you were a cynic say well or things started going badly again. People would say well no. We need a manager who beats his head on the table. Because the glazers don't like spending money and so on and you know as easy concerned did that he be seen as a yes man or does he not concern himself with those things. But i think that people don't care about yes or no money so well winning man or losing man as you say all again knows that the only thing that can stop his critics is to win win. Titles that's all about manchester. United losing four semifinals in a row is not good for him. Is not from manchester united. When a when a so was the manager there he said a year that we second is a failed season thing changed his eight years as much as your to where the best team in and all knows that. You can't be a legend. you can't be in a yes. My new coast be if he doesn't win titles they will get rid of him. That is the law of the jungle. That's law of football. So he knows that but for the time being on it has to be said. You said it yourself. We can criticizing being nice and and be polite and all that kind of thing but like you next week and he could be the league leader going into that big clash against liverpool. And i mean at the end of the day. That is what it's all about is managed after he was knocked out of champions league which is terrible for global club like manchester united. He's up there chasing those titles and so far so good for him but all of you not believe as to thing you have to. Nobody will all come tough when he has to on. He is the first one who knows if he doesn't win. Titles he will be increasing on sunday norway. Ethan buck allow. Which is the specialty of that owned. Do you think though that there's a lack of recognition. Maybe for the work day. Doing i feel like the does he feel like this is what does he feel. He doesn't get enough credit for where united our right. Now i think all is so secure about the mandate is cop there. Look he put in at the beginning. I think too much talked about a beckham. Cross sorority insider a knickebocker fighter. And all those kinds of things you're saying that he's taking that away from his communication more now the last time but he hasn't lost that manage united dna. He wants to get in. We just read read record that he had roy keane talking to the kids. Ryan giggs took down. Fletcher know all about getting out. United dna so that is mandate. Do i think that he cares. About what what they say about in the media as everybody else he he wants to pray smarter likes to be be criticized but i must say being there but one always good games. I've been there when they're losing. I must say i'm very impressed. By the level of his stress level at least in the public of course everybody else he would lie as a baby in his bed crying when losing games dot is part of it. But i must say i'm impressed by the way he's also tackled distress point. I'm trying to imagine him lying. You know the the artist formerly known as the baby faced assassin lying in bed. I imagine other managers. i imagine. Roy keane loss. I i like to magin him going and smashing furniture. But everybody reacts in different ways podcast listeners. The excellent bonus content Around for him. By the way in case you're wondering Yon is in a queue to get his cova test right now. So hopefully we'll be able to bring that to you live. I wanna talk tactics a little bit. Because i i have to admit i saw soldier when he was at cardiff. But that's almost playing a difference sport because you're taking over team that's fighting to avoid relegation I did not see much of him and multi. I know that he did well in norway when you think about his football seems to me that there's been a bit of an evolution has gone from four three two through this diamond that we've seen recently personally. I think the diamond is more effective. Gets the best out of luna. Fernando's no no no my test coming up here. L. by love the fact that he's talking to the test english in norway this is. This is brilliant content. How long will it take. Just tolls understand why we guy recognize you know okay in recognize me but he go to moscow versus ice. That's exercise dr the football now. Let's get a little more granular here when he came. And i have to say. I saw i saw managing cardiff but that was his first experience and it was a horrendous team. They're fighting avoid relegation. I think that's pretty irrelevant to his body of work. I did not see much of him at malda. Certainly a lot less than you did. When he came in there was all this talk because it's dna flying wingers lot of four three three of late. We've seen more of the of the diamond. Which i think is a much better formation personally with buddha fernandez more freedom you can buy in there Is this part of the social evolution in the sense that he tries one system and maybe he he adjusts based on the players he have is. This is it. This is social right. He's not wedded to one system. Yeah it's a good question. Because i think when they're going to start since united. A lot of his system was based on reacting. Instead of acting he was he was playing on the other teams mistakes. Any good good counter-attacks at seven or eight nine games winning and it was. It was amazing. But it's i asked about that. What's the difference between you now After a period of time mentioned united when you start it off and he said well the big difference is now that i'm getting to place. I want to have their on. So i think that the system all your most succeed on i think will definitely see against liverpool this this system to number six in there too that covered his set. Centre-half say it's interesting that has developed or kind of using that system because he wanted to hide the weakness of linda maguire. Because there were they were taking on some. That was bad defending. Let's let's call it that way on. I think that's i think. Sometimes i saw the no on on saturday. I saw live fallen extradited. He looks and it's nothing to do with his quality but he he looks lost out there you know and i think that is because he consigned where do where do you want me where where west. Ib does goes on your self confidence so the system again. But i think that it's too he he would start to see what kind of place i have on. Then we'll at least at the beginning of his regime will just use the system at just. Tada i think is that is like is four. Three one system will the will be in the thing. I mean on names to different systems but I think that is as close as we get to hold want to play. Just just just just just just a complete circle there. You mentioned you know protecting lindelof. Maguire point because while on paper you could look at the players united has and say they're going to be great in transition and on the counter because my seattle and rash are fast and whatever impact can hit a ball into space equally. This is not a team that set up or that i think is comfortable when they're defending This isn't the italy teams from the nineteen eighties. Where they're like okay. You have the ball for eighty nine minutes. And then we'll kill you on the counter-attack this is a team which it's interesting. What you said there be more proactive and less reactive. I don't think they have the defenders to sit there and play without the ball. I think better off. When they're defending on on the front foot higher up the pitch would social view now as well right yeah but remember beginner is also based on the philosophy. Both on alex ferguson. Who had great great players and he being the greatest manager of the world by the way. So i'm not talking about but But he's also laguna comes from norwegian school where we were used to when we played we we. We call it four three three for the branding. It was four or five one actually The national team. When we were holding. And i think when you came to the club it was all about getting results. And then sometimes that is safe to play them contracts waiting for the mistakes of the of the opposition but but being a manchester united A remonstrance united team. They can just wait for the opposition. This defense won't accept that people won't accept that an uneven play won't accept to play like that so i think he will love to to pressurise high love to start. The strike is working wild up there but the funny thing is when we saw the game against what's foot. They got that early goal from tomini. And then what took over. The initiative pressured hyde manchester united manchester united. Good enough to play from the back as manchester city. Not at all there. Were so many times that game so they tried to make this modern kind of thing own box that they looked very bad. I think there was so many passes in that game. That's the price minute manchester united. You can hardly do that. And i think that that is a weakness of Organize setting up at the moment. So then you. You agree if i said to you that collectively we still need to see more from united right now. A lot on bruno fernandez almost individual talent and marsh rush for individual talent. Then something that you built up collectively with patterns of play with very collective strength with a very collective star right. He hasn't been able yet to put that together. Maybe because there was not enough time maybe because he will take him more time maybe because tactically. He's not there there yet. Like paypal club. Now remember when we when we compare the managers where you can kill came to live say now that You can talk some semifinals. The first couple of seasons he was struggling a livable. But remember are we have to be honest on that when you're came to germany now sorry to england he he had. He was eight years. Endorsement champions league final he came in and complete other education so to say then again did all again. I was in cardiff but owners. Bad team relegated fair enough. He came from all dan. I would love to see. Norwegian football reference for being simple. But it's no so so that is fair to say that he needed that time compared with other managers having said that i am not going on the road saying that the system of manchester united is just to give the ball to brunette anonymous. Because should we say that's about barcelona's well just give the ball to no messy. I mean you always. There is always a balance somewhere between your system and individual players. You have available but we also have to say that. I think that we see the weakness is in manchester. United is how bad day can be. I mean i mean. I was at the game old trafford against what for that was a bad game. That was a sad game to watch. It was not entertaining at all. And i think that that the main challenge for laguna is that the games that they have off. They have to be better when they are worse. The worse has to be better. If you understand what i'm trying to say It's so typical masters united. This week is that would probably be it. Livable nicholas against bluntly that is a typical soldier week. And i think that is the main challenge. The games like a doing now when when they have bad but bruna fernandez like against massachusetts didn't function then the system. We're not there to kind of race the rest of the team. If you know. Try to understand me. I want you touched upon before about you. Know he's getting the players that that he wants. i wanna ask about two players. One that he wanted which who aaron one bassac. Oh i think is is is a very good defender but obviously shown a lot of flaws going forward And a player. He didn't want romelu lukaku. Who obviously has been flourishing elsewhere. I i know you officially in social if you ask him says yes. I make the decisions. I make the decisions but obviously it's not just him making the decisions obviously It is a whole bunch of people in manchester united making decisions together. Do you think he might. He might feel differently If you could go back with the decisions she made on wamba sokha and on lukaku. I think a lot of managers when it come into a club they want to do some symbol things that want to do some different things sent on cargo. Amin lukaku was very good. He has to be fit into a system as well. I mean it's not show that it will wanted to have that. Typical number nine in there is not that But if to lukaku. I mean every time you see interplay. You expect him to negotiate. Scoresheet is like messiaen rinaldo. We see when. I win. Noah as they expect the to to score a goal. A lukaku don't ever so well for him. But what i what. I'm i'm a bit troubling but for me. The challenge with manchester united is that sometimes they re recruiting process. It's it's seems that is not so good organized Where where do you start with play as you have in need. And then you'll have their candidates for that position. I hunter percent degree but monsters united after sunshine. Not because that sancho was a big big time player that they wanted to but because they need that kind of player then need a flare. The need someone can take people on and somebody like that. No you just gotta feeling about the bigger sixty two defenders back there all of all that kind of thing so i think that the the balancing in his team is not there at the moment And in terms of luke. I think that was also things dot oled again. This was also signalled. When play was on his move is hard to be a manager to have to try to talk and player into stay as well. As so that is the that is a dressing room Thing that we that is outside address from contel what was going on behind the scenes. Just finish on. What's your point of view on the on the puck bowel ghana's relationship because obviously only going to hurt him with the youth team. When when paul was really young. And i think i think they really like each other. The mineral said paul pogba. Struture is a different story for you. What's that relationship between them to. And could we get to playing really well now for what might be the last six originated united career and so of both having the benefit of good resource for soldier for playing poker by about getting back to his best and helping the team and maybe changing his mind cause full shows only every tip for. I'm sorry he'd be united fans like by let down the club as he's definitely satan every time solskjaer asked about. I know we said he's a company man but he's always been so warm so if you so complimentary every single time. He's completely different. I'm like why can't people understand that. Both things can be true. I think the pug bar assaults relations of glad you said that. I think there's a very mute to respect for each other on On that sometimes get lost in tabloids or agent stalk you know whatever. I think that'd get lost. I think that poked by likes gulligan associate very much analysis. I think they they. They have the respect. The thing is replaced credit interest. Because when you see him playing for france he's fantastic on my master's united so need dots kind of player. I i also think that Paul pogba. I don't know who i live. I will if i if i was as well. I was thinking of that support that he's getting from the soldier all the time because popo has bad games on. I will never see a a a bad word about him. We can say that all we need old school. Having a go at them i played professional from. I was seventeen. I was thirty five two times in those eighteen years. I had a manager say something good about mc face before but that was the old school of managers all again. i think i'm probably arteta lampert clo- on all these. They are quite good at managing leading this new generation of players but guess the these new generation of players. If you have a goal at them they can break down. That is that generation of kids as well the the to raise kids now. In twenty twenty one is differently. It was for my parents and so on and so on so these people. They are very sensible on. And i think that should be the shouldn't be sensible. Well okay. they shouldn't be but they are. So i think that when we started off talking about organise way. Espn accompany man es because he's positive on the other hand he's also we can't take round also say that is a good skill to have to understand this new race of players do do you think that Day well marina on a lot of people try to be hall under pug did. That's how i couldn't see out. So so yeah. I i agree with you I think obviously remember years ago when i sat down with marino. He said At the time us. John terry william gallas as an example if i shouted john terry and say he's the worst person in the world. I'll get a positive reaction from them on the pitch. If i shot at william gallas and tell him use the worst person in the world he's never gonna play with for me ever again. Yeah so you have to know what buttons to push with people that simply good management in any walk of life. I if i could just say one thing voice because sometimes lead leadership is a bit overestimated. How ho- complicated it needs to be. I read an interview. I think it was frank lampard. When marino came to chelsea the first time there was standing in the shower and an eye. On when i listen to this story. I always thinking while because then then then Marino the manager. Frank lampard been to the old school of english football managers. So during your turn to him and said Frank i just wanna tell you. I think you are a good player. Frank was wow manager telling me that in my face it's unbelievable and then it's an maria said. Do you want to make a great player. I mean that is too simple sentences that is for me. Great great leadership you know so so sometimes lets no by the tabloid thing that we have to yell at people to get him going. As as you said that this our troops you're you have to you have to treat players differently on I think. Full pug bicycle. Example of that i completely agree i. I'm just. I'm just the just the bit distracted by image you put in my mind stands naked in the shower and maria. Want me to make a great player but hey context is everything. Oh and by the way. Just don't get trolling united fans when we say soldier is a company. Man is the ultimate company man and we love him and he's a great manager. Different people have different approaches so yawn. It's been education. Thank you so much. Hope to cova. Tesco's electro always abide enough manchester united. Because in the bonus we had leipzig hosting borussia. Dortmund explain this to the neutral like all to the most exciting teams around is going to be show biz and whatever forty five minutes and its first. Half was horrendous wasn't horrendous. I think one shot on goal between them. I know because they were playing a game of chess does not. That doesn't make you horrendous chess. And it uses the loosest italian cutting to knoxville form consisted of. I saw dortmund sitting way way too deep but trying to do things with the ball and not looking sharp and not looking fucking almond. You think okay. Let's let's not go to kneel down after two minutes please. Okay you know how bad the defensively how bad the ounce at busies defensively so the first half just make you cool show. Let's take it easy. Let's see what happens there. Not life seek. Don't have a striker prolific striker right. I thought i thought love for et. Because i tested. She's spending the was by the way is i. I don't know when everybody in the world started wearing an their initials on their jerseys. But if your initials or maybe you shouldn't. I thought maybe i don't know if you're as. I not a great idea. But he's worked. Well how and then. And then you go for the fury you go for the high price you for more adventurous football and it worked. I don't know if that was his plan in the first half or it was just more natural. Caution i think also losing in the first half and by the way. I think that is potentially a game changer. It's going to mean. We'll see more of sean in midfield and i think they were better with sean in there But obviously displeased him down a little bit in the middle of the park. Especially since style seems to have disappeared doesn't like but what we saw afterward from erling haaland Was special and i know. The focus was on sancho scoring again and playing very very well erling haaland. I don't know what else what else you say. The way he makes the first goal by basically inventing himself A wide the other goal where he's got five dudes around him. I mean this is exactly this. Is i mean the finish eleven goofiness you know group positioning so good header problem. But he's not doing what he does or one name. This is the kind of thing that if you pull a psg show on him and you should change the hair or you bashar and changed a hand number. This is well okay. This is what message does small space three plays against you and you. We will move. The difference is that is about this tall donskis a giant. yeah and hauling. yeah. But that's why i mean he does things that you've you've not not really seeing any strikes. Do it like this having all that talent is disposal i he can do step that. No one else does. And what i like about him to is he was. I thought actually until that point dial opo mcconnell was doing was doing a job on him home in the first half. I'm not saying pocket but yeah it wasn't far off And we saw him so he goes and he finds space and he does that show intelligently. he's got. He's got such an awareness of his shot. Though to michael royce as well. Yeah because i thought this was. This was quality-wise. This is royce doing things with youngsters around him rain on sideshow. doing things. union bronco cannot do opening doors quickly. Just just four ten the segment on online. Are they still your pick to. Yes you and i. We agree on the funding win the title but we said from the beginning. Lack of striker could be a prime. I'm happy with force number nine and danielle and forsberg including who is. They need to get their injured guys back. But they'll be as well but let's hope that they can still come tiring podcast listeners. Stick with us all right. Let's delve into this a little more. We talked hall. and i. you've got a few more things to say about your at school of thought tools that he has already outgrown borussia dortmund hundred percent. Maybe even the unless unless you go to buy and then live under ski. But he'd given us down so you can go to buy enough. I think you let's let's say because the pandemic my might drive this because people might not have the money to go and buy erling haaland. I don't know how much man city have. I don't know how much remedy doesn't kick in yet. So it will be the price dot dortmund said hundred million hundred and fifty two hundred million which i think is kind of your own questions but if you could move let's as someone comes in with a big off a city so okay forget about messy these guys the few days the real future we can have it for ten years and he can win us everything you know. A hundred and fifteen hundred and fifteen table. Don't one would sell because if wait another year it would be done to seventy five when the release chris kicks on on december. Twenty twenty two. And if you if you if you hauling holland do do you really want to stay at home and do you really want not being even sure if you can play the in the title race in the moon's legal you can't win the champions league. Why wouldn't you go to some something big already when you good enough when those clubs won't you why would you wait. Is this narrative guys. If i'm up in a defendant should stay. I was gonna say is this. We're told why. Would i know but i i. I think it's a nonstarter i think. Hundred fifty million. I don't think anybody has that money to put on the table this summer. Yeah you're right if they show up and your dortmund like if i'm gonna lose them for seventy million the year after it. He wants to leave short. But i think it's a nonstarter. Because i don't think i don't think it's going to happen. What would you do if you were him. And i would say hey i would. I would look at okay. We made a big deal out of the. I made a big deal out of the headed goal because his tour christian karlsson told us there was a headed goal. I give them props. He jumped against notice meccano. Nah passed them over to to halston. The would have beaten mcconnell. Obviously obviously yes. But but still i think he you know it wasn't a powerful header but it was still a brave huntersville dummy. He still won the header. Can you think of any logical reason why heading shouldn't improve as he gets older. I know impossible. i mean. just think he as you're saying he's he's a bola and he fancies himself as a border. Yeah i can take on three players and dribble and do stepovers and like he does undergo behemoth which is a ball. He can hit ball yakov ambassador. And i'm really dating myself here. It was a baller and he had the ball. Exactly why i mean by babe's in a bad header of the ball. Yeah basically like similar to holland. But i think there would be a point where he realizes. Okay okay. If i want to school mogo. We have to talk to the general good head of the board when he was twenty years of age. Great leap or not necessarily the attitude out. Yeah no question about it. I that will come. I think that would come with holland as well. Can you tricked into the damaged hole and could do in terms of far post headers where he slips over and starts harassing a back. Can i mean Sancho obviously i talked about was the hundred twenty million manchester united saga vodka talking about again in the week leading it this week last week is it. I mean do we take it as read. That saw how it affected him and this is part of the reason. Why first few months season is good. Yeah i think psychologically he was gone in his head this he was gone. You know and. I think when that doesn't happen. I think that level of messes with you a little bit in the sense that you know you have to go in and dominate. Not that clever tolan still a football player. Earning money but i just think in his head he was ready for something else something different and and if i could have gone home as well which is very different a home in london. Nobody likes to to england. So i think i think certainly i think tweet took stall and i think again. No preseason preseason starting slowly. And i think he's the kind of player who needs these momentum. He needs the dynamism case to be made he was one of the best players on the pitch includes holland at the week. But i want to shift to to say because you and i were still on the yearly. Unbanned right here. This is the part if you look at their injury list right now. It's it's enormous. Shoot right we've had. We've had kloster moon. I know he came back. Halston burg's right now Mary's out how campbell is out. Hendrix's is out and kumcu out. Outsource is i mean. We're talking there's a school of thought that says well. Even when they're fit guy just keeps mixing and matching and rotating. He did it last last year. But i think that was also because was out at the box. We kind of generally similar back three but but it is true. It is true that if you put life out there and you talk about automatic choices. You're looking at lashing goal meccano sabbath zor most of the time right still the if he's no engine and maybe one or two others. Yeah under the you know again but it still has to affect you when you don't when he taylor makes his eleven for the opposition right. Yeah because that's the idea. Right is the idea that is his team to play. He's he's idea. I think he's not going to say this but i think he says okay. I have i have a goalkeeper. We don't want to change. I have an absolute world class player in newport mcconnell. The other guys. Let's mix match based on who we're playing against tendencies in strength. That's there's nothing wrong with that right because usual in the modern game. Which i don't think any wrong with it is unusual. Many many players talk about him and if people tell you talk about how look. I've got eighteen twenty players i like to rotate in. You told me a big team that rotate nobody. No no. that's true. I think when he can't rotate. I think he loses some of that Some of that on the flip side though is he loses it without gaining the chemistry and i thought what was missing in this game. They just simply didn't look sharp movements and everything Again i think i think still the title race because byron. I think they're serious serious issues. There that are going on. I agree we set about the striker indicative. Still win without one. Fiqh owning hall lewandowski. I think todd so be it. But it's the lack of creativity knowing that by an ad lost on friday nights and that you could go to if you if you beat dormant i just. I really expected them to go. Or guns blazing. So we say august from the beginning and just it was not what we use from lipstick. So maybe they were retired maybe they. They were caught physically during the much much shorter winter break than usual and and they will peak laissez say in four weeks physically but i just thought that was such a big push. T missed because this is dome inside. Hasn't played great before that game. And like you said in the first half we're not fantastic either and I was. I was just left a bit. Frustrated by was from leipzig. Get got say people notice that. I don't mention the name of the leipzig sponsor because i'm old school and i don't like the way this is all put together but when it comes to their footba note when it comes to nine nine comes to the way they work so much all right enough of all that. How about some quick hits instead go up. You may be ten minutes as well as three one. But lose deba- and mckinney along the way it's three wins in a row and if they win their game in hand their third but is this progress. I mean the almost messed it up. Because i what. It came back in the game and until the last ten minutes one. So swallow down to ten men for the higher secondhand shorter. You cannot drop more points here now in a game like this. Not when they were dominant or the not brilliant but dominance ramsey when he replaced my kennedy. It wale But i just. I just don't think you should left so late. This is a game that you shouldn't have serious issues. Punditry kota been sent off early. That's why there's no delays as well. Obviously no no. No corrado sandro either. Meet field archer horrendous to watch again a lot of issues. But hey it's a winning and christiana scores another goal in garbage time but yes missy and my boy one grysman both scored twice. I'm plays ninety minutes without an incident ambassador. Be granada away. Four neil gab. Other turning the corner okay. So granada our our goods. Either But you know when we talked about the four true chaos earlier this year so when they're not playing well it's horrendous when they play well as individuals. It makes all the difference. You saw here. He's a setup or they played well as individuals messy. I mean i know people made a big deal. Is i free. Kick goal after seventy attempts but that other goal where he's completely off balance and you feel like you know he's gonna you see him do just before a deadly. I thought was was was fantastic. Battery is patriot. Which which says it all think. It's a reminder that while we're often critical of kumon going forward this is potentially the best solution right now david system the system but defensively midfield. Joel's yeah so messy. Yeah i still have been messy but there's certainly on the good way you know. We need more. We need more to. Yeah i think it's not going to be fixed for a while. You need to go to extra time to do it. Arsenal beat newcastle united. To in the fa cup is a meal. Smith rogue breaks the ice and then one hundred ninety minute jewels but for vr. He wouldn't even have been on the patriot. Vr yeah i mean on this case it works. It's four call. The referee onto governor is the anthony. Communist shows red card very quickly in my opinion but still red card. You could clearly see that red cards you know. This is what it's meant for more work. And then emmett. Smith who had a big impact on the game Scores the first goal for arsenal and kids looking good. It's looking really good referee. Mike earlier to give my referees day the daily mail he made a mistake by not sending off jordan pickford for that final version van dyke in dhabi back in september gob. How'd you feel about referees. Admitting their mistakes month and weeks later well first of all better late than i think. It's right that he. I think it should encourage do this Exactly why made the mistake and funny enough. It was exactly what we said at the time. The fact that they had to determine offsides the fact that he had determine if it was a penalty he should win the fact that oh one of the liverpool player's seemed upset. So maybe we didn't realize seriousness. Look you still screwed up and you don't want to send the message that you need players being saidan surrounding the referee but well done michael oliver for coming out on more transparency. More honesty please. Romo come from behind to draw with inter to jewels are incher serious. Or are you gonna blame for dropping points here okay. Let's contained because you know this is a game where role go one is the first half where inter not goods. I'm increased morning on nuku was outstanding. Though like literally wasn't the first half he was fantastic. Okay second half interest early on. And then they talk and then is very good housekeeping with greg ward then. I think they've got this great win. Really sorted win especially after what happened last weekend. Great win and then talking superstitions. And everything. And i'm like why are you doing. I could have told you. That game was coming from roma. I knew it was coming and by the way out to reveal. This has to stop now this you compliment games. I d say mobasa in italy. Yeah exactly i'm sorry. Sticking with roma up to us other for real you know what i think. They've gotten zero respect up to start on the table they have. Maybe possibly the best manager in some people might say look policy a very handsome as well. The most handsome manager and city although they did that be looks pretty bad but look. I think you need to project forward and ask yourself okay. Can the old guys you know. Hang in there jack -tarian but they got set your lift from from the yard from from you know my own from dan. Yes at the back Outstanding defensively and they have the knowledge to combat. I think when he comes back if he hits the ground running they could be in the conversation. I am not ruling them out. I don't think of madrid game is called off by the weather. But there's good news on the striker front mussa than delays reportedly on his way from its alone plus option to buy for thirty million euros makes sense he then blame accents the money. Yeah okay. maybe it doesn't work out. You got an extra body upfront yet. Well they need someone anyway. After costa left the club. So i like was billy. He's one of mine of st is born and bred so i wish him all the best. I think he could do really well there. I think he's got the game and the profile for it is different to swallow too. So i think that could work thirty million. I think will be a good price if he does. What for the knicks. i'll tell you. What would these options to buy the unit little secret. If he says. I'm not going back to leon. I wanna stay. You're madrid you have the means and the guys go and work yourself a discount. Meanwhile remedied neil neil bio sooner in icy conditions in pamplona. I mean he was snowing and the peach was full of snow as well. This was disappointing. Wasn't it yeah. I mean look at. They were on the runway for four hours. Take flight from madrid to pamplona. They got after midnight. I think they had one shot on goal or one chance. Once again he started eating hazard not a good idea not direct game for him. He was really poor. Yeah it's disappointing. Lots of mitigating circumstances said they should have been postponed because he should have been. They never asked for it to be postponed. So it's not going to postpone if you don't ask for it. You madrid win three games in hand. The gap becomes ten points. That is a lot of time to set up eight money show fourteen price. Is your man record. Their first win three nail against breast. It was great to have to be honest because really really really good attacking team. Braised fantastic towards. But it's a win. We've take that. We saw a few twix their and their competitors cole. I'm liking it. So let's go big game against marseille on wednesday night so let's go parche chelsea rondebosch team enka vez get underscore sheets guy visit meaning four on really the two of them if this helps them gain confidence and whatever else i thought. Harvard's played well but like it's markham. So welcome in wise was what are you gonna do now. I accident pastry battle to to draw on the top of the table. Eredivisie clash as your boy. Sebastian layer makes his debut. Your thoughts. yeah. He made his debut given our sisters well. It was a great game. I mean the first half especially. Don't ask don't remember and errands a heavy. Who is an amazing striker. Played really well. It was a great game. Two to indiana's you said top of the table clash stays the same. I like to low are so much. The ctb birmingham city three another. See us coast to the gab. How specialist i one will jewels. It's about the tekere's. I don't i don't know how does that. How would break my leg for them. I okay so. I think those not been bernardo this season. I think he's at a slow start to the season a goal like that. It's just a reminder of how to absolutely technically brilliant this guy is he's technically good. He's super intelligent. Super aware runs lots. He runs a lot. He's not the greatest athlete in the world. But right he plays like this. He's a value added. Severe are up to fifteen lollygag having beaten three choose. You know i'm on team. He's ya joe's. You're always telling me they can't win the league. They're not serious because they don't have looked young and ned and nasdaq front fantastic scores. Are you on board now. Yeah and particular by the way son. New did which is completely deserved and well done and he would be for for much longer. Now let's hope so. An israeli has transformed himself from an impact which was before. Let's be honest coming on as going ahead on a freaky 'cause something to becoming this really really clinical striker who can hold the ball. Where vega india as always been but also now. He's runs a good. He's finishing his good. I'm like wow. This is really good game against russell. Sadat who played severe to finish top for. Yes i think so. I think they would but it's still have to time. Oh milan torino. Abra comes to warm up a little bit warm up before the warm up. He's like banging on the on the advertising order like a big win they stay top of the especially with the result between turn romans one big win because it comes after defeat and they're playing their old manager medical jump karma there perhaps By the way. I think terrible Now the pieces are the pizza falling into place. Hebrews coming back at the time rafael now a tremendous performance gets. I gotta say this so people. Come out and say oh. So and so's not a wingback so-and-so's not attacking. He's not a ten. He's more than eight or six guys is. Football is football man yet. Rafael donnas center. No he's not brahima vich center forward. He's on andy carroll centre forward. He's not a surgery center floor. He's a different kind of center forward. I'll tell you what if you're going to play a pressing game then. Rafael allows movement probably serves you better than slat under the jolly can harness this. If you can alternate maybe lao in some situations and then you chuck on imagine sixty minutes of propounding you add in. This guy moves into the middle at the end. Imagine you offender having so many things you can do leon. Our winter champions league on delhi of courses on his way as we said memphis defy follow at some point. How big a deal is this of their lose memphis. But they're not gonna lose him. I think he's he wants to stay decided to keep him. You know. I don't think i don't think boston could come with anything serious anyway. So they would kill the other teams in europe other than barcelona memphis at a reasonable price. You don't think there's somebody out there who could use another fudges. Don't think they will let him go now. They have a big chance to win to win the league. They really they really strong. They two on saturday but there were down there. Were no playing well in this. Still find a way of getting the points and it was really good. And i just think with not playing in europe while psg hopefully would go find the champions league. They have a huge chance to win it but within face if menefee goes i think they're not gonna win the title so i think they're right to keep him. He was way by confiding nights but the reduction of buying throwing away tuna lead and losing three to bush russian-grad acid being fed was named player of the year but the fact is by half kept on one clean sheets in the last fifteen games guard. You're not always played. Naming player of the year in sort of the german nazi german national team fans. and whatever. it's obviously gives your one. Who dusky win. It would want it but you know and why didn't tell me willer when it well because he's not a german national tv. Yeah i kinda stupid even have this award sense and it kind of sucked in both somebody. Whatever that stat. One clean sheet in fifteen games is what gives you. I think cause to worry. It's not so much the fact that life's he didn't win the following day but defensively this this is a mess and not been good afonso davies since coming back has not been good nicholas. Suda came by the. I was a tuna lead. You've got all of his this this pace going forward. You should be able to it. I don't wanna hear stupid. Stereotypes of god to have the dna of the winners. They're going to know. You gotta go and earn it every day. And i think this is what hansie flick is going to want to instill in his players. Some people i think aren't getting the message. And i'll tell you what i'll let you know. I love alabama right. I think he's been up and down. He's up and help the chaos around him if he's heads not right you've got lucas hernandez let's see more of him But you know big shot to marco rosa though and gladbach because being down and coming back away players missing missing and the way they played the way the hughes all the space on the page to spacey's and below in 'em off meinhof huffman so it was britain so went onto them to cotonou. I'm beat up marine five nail and suddenly joe marina alleys often step and could be a big part of tottenham future. Jules we believe well yes no talking about the fa cup future all your belief future. Maybe i don't know but then it was good against a team from the division and it was a walk in the back for spurs. But i still think that spurs the early to go anywhere. I don't think he would go to. I don't think they would want to let him go on. I think with the games coming up they will. They will need him too. So in that sense. I believe josie but they shows change very quickly. Yes i bet when he says big part i presume he doesn't mean. Oh yeah you're going to be lasalle so's backup belly's backup. I think he means actually getting on the pitch. I'm not sure that's going to happen. Because i'm not sure. He necessarily fits great at this point. I'm not sure where his height spaces. I i still think if they can shift them they will shift them but that might be tough. Not so i thought that destroy benevento. Four one hundred thirty six for a masterclass with gregg goal. And we still don't know what is going. Gob gasperini says he doesn't fit tactically. Papa fees differently any instagram. Like little footage of way. He's to show. That actually fits well in the new system. So i feel a little bit back because i can totally see both sides of the argument. Any we know. Mrs leaving papa gomez is gone because he felt badly with gus because he feels just bidding bullied of his players Gasperini maintains otherwise and the situation is irreparable. Which is a big blow for that. Because papa goma store. I think one of the best players in just oppose you that i have been playing better. Since he's out of the team. Right you agree with eighteen goals in five games scoring more. Yeah yeah there's no argument there. Guess britney keeps getting asked about this and because he doesn't like talking to the media bees and very interesting when you talk to me eventually. He says oh. He's not a tactical fit anymore. And so that's why papa says. Oh you're saying i don't track back we'll look here's evidence and instagram By the way. I hope you got cleared. Because you know you can get banned for media But twitter account closed but what's interesting is public gomez will make a lot of teams better. I thought that have said we're not going to allow him to leave to a direct rival. Which i take to mean. They're not going to allow them. Allow them to join another city. Atiyah teams elsewhere who i think even at thirty two has a short term boost completely not just party your man how you might even poach would would-be so good part you. If you're watching papu go to paris make it to be great and who's used to playing oppressing aim eighteen months contract boom. You're in your. I mean every day. I'd love to see that me to six years. After the fact corinne benza is facing trial over the macchia valbuena sex tape affair tools. Why is this story. Still hanging over us because mind. Is i what it is because some people might not be old like me and they might not remember. Yes. that's right. It's a big story because much of the state as you do as you do that. He got into the hands of someone that you didn't want to get into his hands when you say sex just to be clear for people who are imagine more annoyed and there's a video of him having sex with a sexual partner who is a woman who perhaps is in his wife or girlfriend. Yeah and that video ended up in the hands of someone wanting to hands and unsavory character blackmail people some time. Well in that case it looked like the blackmail. We're not to say unless you pay us. We will leak video. And he's going to be everywhere which he did. They want to. Of course much when i called the police and then coming benz. Emma seems to have interfered a little bit. Because it seemed are one of carrying benza. As best friend well actually. He's based friend also said too much about. When i listen we can help you and will never come out but you know we need something in return and nothing carrying ben. Zima was the middle man if you want between his best friend and much of albania when they were with the national team and obviously because there was an investigation going on because much of our not called the police on then that's when carrying benz emma's name was dropped into the hose. This this was a tape of had made himself. It's not like it's only korean. Benda's friend was hiding in the closet. No it's just. The video was on one of much of one is all phone and as you do if player sometimes you give to someone to do the update so change and put all the stuff the photos and you've got another phone and then dies when the truncation we know we could this result and bends emma having to go to having a having a court having to go to prison possibly potentially If he's proved i guilty of black mailing of being involved heavily in the story in that incident in the investigation. Then i think the the consequences could be huge for. I think he would go that far but given the damage done given that we know was in the sex tape right. I don't particularly have any desire to see valbuena engaged in sexual relations yet. Why doesn't vote. Why not just say hey cream. Let's just not that much of a hand anymore. Also yeah french. Justice continue undeterred. Because he he went to the police because he said. I'm being blackmailed. This is what's happening then. You open an investigation. Hoping is while he's crazy absolutely crazy childcare. Don't make history as they often. I'm four nil after thirty games without a win. Thanks to tweet by matthew. Hope they young. American gab was the bright who has the brightest future shulku or matt. You hope it's i think it's hoppy how he calls himself a hattrick counterattacking goals should big personality was only third start. Well done to him. I think his future is brighter. Because frankly shockers position financially is such an absolute mess that there's a school of thought that says the best thing that they could actually do. His got themselves. Relegated right brings join angel. Shall we come back on thursday. do the health. Yeah exactly joe then Love the game. Love your neighbor love yourself.

Have Man United Improved Under Solskjaer?

"Woke means latest addition of ESPN, AFC I'm Dan Thomasson later on the show Eileen Marina with made to reflect on Real Madrid, taking one step closer to win in La League title, and also has Julianne Laurent with us to tell us why Manchester City will be allowed to play in the Champions League next season. In fact, it was a great day for manages the city because they saw united drop. Drop points manager to to joy against some Hanson social side with the opportunity to move up to third in the table, a late equaliser for the Saints Means They Remain v Eight extraordinarily type that bathroom for now the top four we know what we talk for to qualify for the Champions League next season, not the top five Craig and frank with US Craig. What happens to you and I said? Well first and foremost. Why it can play in the chat league, because the Court of Arbitration for sport overwhelmed ruling. Now you go! We went into the intricacies and say. Think well I don't think anybody's really interested in the factors that can play. So, annual. Mean Franken segments. I'm no bottle. Convenient if you like no right I. I thought. Were good for the point. You know we know. Got The call. But he started so sloppily and I was. I was really impressed. Foster fifteen twenty minutes walk. Ralph has say that with what he's working with with the budget with the place called the way the press. They really pasta, and they were good for the lead. Listen to to Sucker Punch of two or three minutes reunited with some quality. We saw Paul Pogba Leon needing a kick up these box me sleeping possession a couple of times I've got caught for one of the goals. I thought I thought they kept plugging up to know a strong that the star. The strong finish all be inactive down. To ten men with the head injury to two young Williams wasn't ideal, but it couldn't defend the call now. And so therefore, we were not deserving island thing of taking all three points at home this. Is Craig mentioned once. You've got those two goals united. Franco well that's done and dusted united going to go on and win this game. Yeah True I. Think it was the end of the story and. Was quite unfortunately for Saas on, because seeing the the hard work, they made no and the they went through to maybe try to get at least. Withdraw off time. They were two, two, two, two, one at halftime and I think when mentioned decided to finally play the should that they were better than the saints for the second half same problem. Still Sloppy and at the end of the day you know. You always have the risks to to see the. Getting goal, and then seeing you getting outside the stadium withdraw and these up very unfortunately, because we didn't got injured the play ten against eleven the last. Let's say seven eight minutes and kick, but you have to be strong. You have to your more experience. You WanNA reach the chimpanzee next season. You shouldn't consider goal on the corner. Kick if you want to if you want. Everybody thinks that's going to deserve to be in the chimpanzee. That's really two points relaxed stupidly from from Manchester United at the of the game. Done seems to be a law. People recently have gone tidal wave of all souls Lavin. And whilst they have. IMPROVED THERE'S NO DOUBT ABOUT The Bar was extremely low. There's an argument to be, said the F. as hotter manager, they might have already knew Detroit for and be in possession of trying to chase teams down. Let let me just give you some facts off. The back of the the lockdown. Enough talked this. They've only had one team. That's not in the bottom half of the league, and that Sheffield United today interest and start from. Leslie the Skykomish who's on the feed calms tonight with Jim Bergman. He said we must remember. Prior to this game. Points return and Premier League history on Chop without the fifty four points behind Liverpool. Last year, they finished two points behind the league champions. Manchester City some point out to me Ho this is a superb progression under only gonNa Solska, and as I said, some of the footballs been better, but we must, we must remember the V. could have been in the top four nil dawn with that scored hide behind the manager in charge, not setting fair four points behind Liverpool and scrambling around to get results against teams in the bottom half. The League that that's that's not opinion. That's fact you've got Kim credit for what he's done over the last few months early, Craig. But in a league season is over a few months that don't don't think the twitter crowed. A league season he's been in there. Before Christmas the year before you had the January transfer window at the summer transfer window. His second year in the job. We're talking about a full season. They are fifty four points of the league leaders. That's more than they. We're off Manchester City when the championship last season and I repeat the second points return and their premier league history to this before the game tonight. Tell me why it's a reason to be separate cited above Manchester. United I would be concerned that with him at the helm right with the hail golsby be able to negate the amount of points next seasonal decision after that. That does worry I would have United Fund not coming up here. All this is the greatest thing ever look at the results forgetting looking league table. Look at five bucks look at previous seasons. This is the worst they've been. In the last Chris Seasons in terms of the gap, even before source was the job marina wasn't that far behind on goal wasn't as far behind. That's factual. Having said that, though if he gets them in the top four, it will be a successor, and because it is progressing. Well most of us had them in the top four start the season. We fought Chelsea struggle because of the transfer ban, which people simply of pleasantly forgot is going to be done. I think our favorites to get, and because of the League fixtures I do. But if they had heideman child's from the start list season, and my opinion that was up to the task properly they would probably of already down by no Basma. Point of funds can't take. Don't understand. Don't like it then tough. Continue to Fox. You'll be chasing the tail of Manchester City and Liverpool and the common seasons Frank. I don't know I, think it's I having senior what? What my say, it was capable of doing almost nothing in the first part of the season and are reacting and. Maybe other favorites of the three to between Chelsea, Leicester. To to to get the third place. Yeah, we, you can say it's a it's A. It's a good thing to to to to happen to too much. Say Ninety. You have to be realistic. Defiant against. Chelsea. Couldn't couldn't recruit. With a young young players playing. Lester. Good the same policy with not buying top top players where Manchester United is doing great, and even mentioned, say greenway because the recruit Bruno Fernandez. Just before the hood, the restart and that guy changed the module of Manchester United, but saying that. soaker is doing something. Great is far from my perspective where I think Manchester. United is still not playing the way. She used to see the clumping. We're not the same ambition that I used to see. Manchester United having so. I think everybody's lower their perspective about about Manchester in eighteen and their goals, but Manchester, it's one of the biggest in the world and I think it's not enough when you see them playing and when the when you see them getting some non results, none of these sites are in great shape done Chelsea Leicester Mandated Tottenham. None of them. It's not it's not or united, not in great shape. None of the marble is frank, said Manchester. One of the biggest a commercial juggernauts in the world and have been for a while, the standards are higher than most others. Now I. Look at four eighteen matches unbeaten. Bad Shame they. Well I would suggest set in table was not in great shape for Manchester United and less stunned, those of dropped so i. don't really know where you're coming from here from from that point I've already pointed out the huge gap to the top appointed I the police to and relative temps. Primarily history. I acknowledge some of the great young players. I, don't I don't deny that. The big question is no not. Conversion, young players produce as he got the tactical knows when it comes to agree to with two of the best managers on the plot, and Guatemala and Jurgen klopp, and don't say these teams or in their hands. Just because didn't go out and spend the money on November. I, it would be folly and I think. That they will go out and they will. They will replenish stocks squad and this summer. Mine City will definitely go again even more so that we know they're going to jump league. It's not just the Yes united of improved since the time of the year. These sites are miles ahead of them. They're also going improve as well then you got to ask well. How can we peg? The difference repegged the difference with the plane scored with the recruitment which has got better on the management. We know these teams that have mentioned have top-class managers. We kind of hunting. Har-. Northern Cod, absolutely no one con want to cheerleaders. Sit here and say Manchester United. Have World class coach. If anybody does right the stupid, let's take a look at the running three matches. Remaining two places left in the Champions League. Manchester United Play Leicester on the final day of the season, which can be huge, but Craig mentioned united running, and it is nice palace West Ham, and then against the Fox of Lesser Got Sheffield United, Spurs proceeding that Chelsea Norwich Liverpool moves. In Chelsea Frank. Yes! I think so I. Think Lester lost. A little bit of something just. during dependent, and then the restart is not good enough and. the way they lose. Games and Games made me think that. They not in the same shape and. And just seems to be fortunate even in sometimes like last game. They absolutely poor. But he seems to have something with them. Helps them to keep their their position. That day where the Lewis Three Neil and is still. In rank and Manchester United Is I mean. They are the best of the three right now. You have to be fair. They are doing the digging the best result, and if all three clubs are not doing great Manchester maybe the best of the three, so it's only fair to say that Manchester United and Chelsea we'll we'll get to the. To the Chelsea Serie A spot. Lester seems to be. Away from all ambitions to right. Yeah I think less than half of are struggling. I think. I think Chelsea have gotten to work out because I think defensively you know that. That land publicity address in the summer. Which I'm sure he will try, but I think united even though I've. Given them some steak and stick by said. I still. Think affects your list and the plane's. GonNa make that top four, but I tell you what you look. All these size might go. It is going to be sent to have Bengo in the summer. Isetan because everyone is not the not chasing the strikers at the moment that chasing this off an eye, odd Manchester a because. Lindelof is okay, but for the money they paid for Harry Maguire. I I'd say. He! He's looking very cumbersome to me. He was so scar he would be sent to have peering would be a big concern for me, though not the only team we know set you're looking for. Chelsea. We know arsenal a desperate. All these clubs are desperate for these defenders and Manchester Nathan another club on Chelsea the scenario but I. do think it will make the Japanese league, but I think that is problematic possession for both clubs. And Frank Thank you. Again. That's something Danielle about that. You know that's the main concern and already talked about that a little weeks ago and where we're really despotic, the position of centre-half will be something that you're GonNa we're gonNA look for because. reimagining has doing great because who the Environment Sergio Ramos. Renowned doing great, because Van Dyke and and good also other defenders like Gomez or other but Manchester City straggling justice striking. Manchester United Destroy. All the clubs Bustle Nice driving in Europe where they come to find their rhythm, because they don't have center because we. We forgot about that position. We thought he wasn't very important. And now we have a problem finding good central defender, so academies have to work on that clubs have to look for the best. you know. They're talking about. chegos silver were living like a few weeks ago now. Maybe he's going to stay because it's company buddy else. Thanks very much. Boys more from Franken Craig my guests on extra time today, which you can check out as always on all youtube channel. Did you know GEICO's now offering an extra fifteen percent credit on car and motorcycle policies. That's fifteen percent on top of what Gyco could already save you.

Save an extra fifteen percent when you switch by October. Seventh limitations apply visit GEICO. Dot Com for details. Meanwhile, the other big news today Manchester. City will be in the champions the. Season to grab markle the great job explaining in the latest edition of the Gavitt Gills podcast to download that now the very much better half of that podcast with US Joel's. Let's start from the start. On this is difficult, but imagine I have the mind of a five year old. Just explain exactly what happened today. If we go back just a little bit earlier, Donna and back to two thousand fourteen, when when you and the commission Daleks after. FBI. Found out. After an investigation that much city bridge, the rules of financial play so city. UEFA find a settlement at the time. Twenty fourteen they had defined were little sanction nothing to see nothing like a banner anything this. Sentiment and city. Admitted that the financial fair play rules and everybody was happy with the after that, we had the football league's. Revelations we leaks about some emails emerged to city produced, and and a new investigation started, and then you if I realized realize this should actually punished more heavily marshes, the city for the breach of regulation from two thousand fourteen, Hanson you investigation the new bond the two year bond. The thirty million euros fine. And then much the city on the back of the new sanction. If you won't went to cast to try to get, it, changed, overturn and Mayday case forward, saying hang on a minute. That punishment is far too much. We agreed in two thousand fourteen. Now you F is trying to punish us more from what we in two thousand fourteen, and this is our case. We don't think that's fair and then lawyer when against the lawyer from fine from the financial fair play and cast decided today that one. There was no justification for the the heavier punishment from you and more importantly, maybe there was a technical fault somewhere in the sense that the late the F. F. P.. Regulation broken, much city where more than five years ago and there's a technicality in the financial route, said that. If you go over five years, then it's time bed, time story, and you can't go back on this prescription basically, and you can't act if something had happened more than five years ago. That's why. The appeal today and and overturned a ban reduced the defined from thirty million to ten million and much distance. You would be allowed in back in Europe for the next two years. Okay, I followed that Jill's now. Forgive me if I'm wrong, but wasn't it UEFA? Who wrote the financial fair play states in the first place? Who would have had this five? They they would one who put this five-year caveat in some? Surely they knew when they prosecuted city, and then city appealed that UEFA. We're going to lose. What on Earth that we've been doing? Your right is crazy, so we know in a few days, not exactly we'll have a written case from cast with everything written in. The case made by the two parties. What has decided the three judges? To decide what would happen? Maybe maybe you find financial fair play body. The commission thought that because the football league's arrived later on, so the breach was twenty fourteen. The football leagues only happened in two thousand, eighteen or something like that, and maybe their thought. If you take on the starter when football happen, which is new evidence for that case, then maybe that changed to date otherwise, we're right, two thousand four. Four, hundred, five, hundred, nineteen, thousand, twenty, twenty, there was no way this could work, and if human city, and if you months lawyers who they pay fortune, who are some of the best lawyers in the world and you look at it said this is easy. This must have been one of these cases for those lawyers. They hang on a minute. The report is here the technicalities here. You risk nothing, and maybe that's why was so confident from their one because they knew that there would be no way CASS knowing of the five year prescription periods, there was no way could say. Oh, yeah, that punishment is rights. We're GONNA. Keep it or even reducing it for a bit. There was no way because as you said it was crazy from UEFA to nothing that five year rule could be applied in this case, ipad city lawyers I was still in voice in the hours and how easy it was so. Think back to win. Financial Fair play was put in, and we were sold this of. It's going to be a level playing field. That's rubbish, isn't it? That really is now appearing to be completely false in a sense that if you've got money. If you're rich club before you're going to get punished, because you can fiddle the books, you can do what you like. You can get away with it. It's those clubs who never had money that will never develop as maybe they had the chance to in the past. So you've gotta points you can, you can look out FFB way, and you said okay, but one. There's no many clips who love a state behind them, actually only two for now at least man, city and psg and big surprise, who are the two clubs to major clubs who breach financial planning the last eight years since started psg I mentioned to city, and we'll come back to them and they later. What you could also do is before financial. European clubs as a whole. Having between one point seven one point eight billion euros of losses in the last two years. They've made profit the clubs Sam profit, so if you look at it that way F- appears heads as made the football more profitable, more sustainable. In a way, better run than it was before fifty, so there's a way there's a side of F. B. Does worked. There's another sign that you're right. It wasn't what for me the issue from the beginning. He's the FBI. Whenever tough enough especially with. An city. Got Away with big-time psg. I and they had really really minimal sanctions when they when the chief financial February regulation, because basically the money that was coming into the club was provided by. Sponsors who basically were owned by the same people who to clip, so it was easy to say Oh, I'll give you money island. You money to another of your companies basically and San Fermin City, and they obviously cooked the books in that way and I think. You F F F should have been fast tougher on their on the sanction to PSG unto city from the beginning, and we wouldn't be in this mess now where people are. Dead because Luke, a city, go wear with the which in a way that did because they should have been punished more heavily from the beginning like PSG Aban. Big Fine for sure and not just are you gonNA, find. You can reduce your squad in the championship to twenty one player. That was rubbish and I think that was the sanction that were given to PSG and. There were far too lenient far, too. Kind sanctions if you want a now this dimissed people saying. Dead. This is a joke and I'm saying I'm the first one to said this. This has made a joke of FBI just. City D- what they had to do and good on them and they got away with it. And as you said FBI with their own rules with their own regulation met big fan of themselves. How much does this at precedent than going forward? I guess. I guess it does in a way, but again who will have a backing from a from a state like PSG in city? Maybe the next one will be Newcastle with the Saudis and good luck to them if they want to reach. And by by the time they took over the takeover. By the way the the roots might loosen up a bit for new ownership and people who arrive in a club and said listen I want to invest heavily now. Can we loosen up the regulations so I can go into debt, and then in the next five years I'm going to balance the books. But but yeah, you're right it it doesn't. It's not looking good is this is a good thing for peace? Good thing for UEFA, and it's not think for people who want to invest in football and I can say hang on a minute I'm doing exactly the same PSG and Man City did and they go to with this. So why should I be? Pushed more heavily when they go to wear with this. So you're right, it's a big precedent are. I think for a few years now. Unless there's a big reform on fifty, which which might come but I, think for a while now a lot of people would say you can't touch us because what happened to city and PG, and if ever a club goes back to CASS. That's why exactly they're going to put forwards Juliana as always I. Thank you very much. It's a big story when Gab now infamous Q and a sessions where he also himself the questions. You can check out that all over on the website. GEICO gets you access to licensed agents. Twenty, four seven, which means that Geico is always there for you.

Madrid now, just one win away from winning La Liga title Australia to victory. Against Granada Eileen Moreno with me to the back of that game. First off already Madrid tuneup thought bish. Bash Bosh job done, but that go for Granada early on after the break changed everything, and in the end, downside was holding on. Your Word Dan, and the curious thing about this is how in control reality mandate was in the first half, and how comfortable they were in possession of the ball, creating tagging opportunities people getting on the ball east co-, combining mortgage, combining events in my scoring a nice well for Landman. These foreign one heck of gold from a very tight angle and you're thinking well. That's it nothing to see here to nothing. We'll see you guys. Slater and mother is just going to run away with this, and he just didn't quite work out that way because that contrast in the second half in which my lead was simply. I don't control. All of a sudden, all that calmness and all that possession, and all that control that they had the first half was gone and I think give credit to. In that, they took approach up. You know what we have nothing to lose. We are where we are in the table. We're going nowhere. We're not going down. We're going open so therefore. Let's get after it and let's go and talent. And they did that time and time again and the speed of my mitee's on the left hand side created some problems. He's score the goal and from then on as US said Dan. Hanging on when I say hanging on I really mean you over asked. Come up with a safe and in a similar sequence to that one. Once he comes up with the Save. The ball gets recycle around cross back into the box and eventually what you find is. Making the save it said if you're Rambos, clearing the ball off the line and This sort of thing was sort of happening regularly tour the latter part of the game in which you just feel like well now that really deserve something out of this game, but once again randy those just enough and I think that's been the story for this team. Since the restart, they do just enough, and we saw the reactions incinerating at the end of the game of how. How excited he was, and how much mentoring how fired up? He was which we usually don't see from him. He knew this guy really difficult. In the second half, they got through it. Three points. See you guys later I'll even run. Thank you very much more legal talk. On the next edition of ESPN AFC a win around Madrid against vary later in the week and they champs. Let's focus on Italy. Now Inter to second in the table for three one victory over Torino that one nailed down the bright for then you some goal scores Ashley Young, Gordon and then Louder Martinez guarantee and the Victory Shirt Roberson with US Robert. Defenders popped up. Yeah I mean I did play. In the first off the news, being threatened to score goals, but hasn't scored around for. Inter Milan Safaa Great. To set play short went back out. Actually young played into Sanchez headed back into a gray area and was there. He kept coming around the fall post road in Ford from his right wing. Right so our position didn't quite. End of a couple of crossing the first off actually young. It's been an inspiration at Thomas Ridgeville, and he's played really well, and he deserved. Go Robot. No, we all know you're a big Antonio Kante Fan. Yet embarrassing when you take a look at the fact that they still remain eight points behind you at the top of the table. Considering the position, they were in earlier in the season. Where's it going wrong in your opinion? US through by some wonderful for work and see what he's trying to my big problem. Is that chew easily counter to, and they are sloppy the goal they gave away today. Clearly mistakes and I think there's not enough pace in the back three golden plan on the right hand side of a back. Get Run past times. Screening was left out the rise of very very plan out in the back, but I still the has he's pretty young. Play Stony again lovely when he's coming forward. Good left folk, but it was two three times a day when I didn't really have much possession, he was caught out by the LACI running off the back of and he should have scored on a couple of occasions. So, that's the problem. That's where he's gonNA improve next year. I think. The chew to whites in the half backs rate. have. To be quick, and they have to be better defenders. Romo's I some of the chance to talk to you about that events against Atalanta. WanNa brilliant match in particular for. Who will feel more than agreed that there got point? As to movement of Gomez, that body played around the corpus, a passer was a wonderful. It's what you expect. From Atlanta and they will unlucky because. It's around two penalties. Really event just didn't play with. Those two penalties to be given against them on. They were really lucky. How would you fix this hamble real? Well sorry I was probably worse than most every time I hit. Somebody hand in the box by the referee wants to give a penalty and I think that's the wrong decision are they should let it go a little bit more and then if the. Looking looking at it, and he probably won't overturn it, I think handball decision is being given fartsy regularly. In Sarah is being managed a little bit better elsewhere, but. The problem with. Your. Incident Robo the final points before. I let you go full. DIAL UP GOES ATALANTA PSG. How would you put that percentage wise? I'M GONNA go sixty four gene pitches by because of the. Best supplies and then call. Some outstanding blast they've gone further into the in the Champions League and that's Atlanta Atalanta newly into the Champions League? But. One of.

Actually it was excellent and the The publisher of wanting to game play some great stuff. Daniel behalf times all times, but at times under. Semi only been dull other times. They've now now most of the time. They've been pretty sorry most of the time they've been. was trying to appease the. New. Lockdown restart. A just hoppy TMP's people from United Funds Yeah. Yeah. What what I mean getting. Plenty of pain whose law can't wait for this game? It's going to be a cracker. I know they've tried to change. The. Not The top of our list for segments on your show. Because you know they don't. They haven't quite. They have quite cut the mustard yet. Frank, what do you think about letting? It's a it's A. It's. A good coach. They have a very good team. They do well, but they're not pleasant to watch. Because the I mean the troy to to break the game, they don't try to build try to. Wreck the peninsula and that it's it's not very interesting. I mean when you put somebody like. Nine players. We end the ball when you only think about defending about. Being a little bit dirty and some points you know we some defenders. You don't enjoy I, mean you? You're capable of seeing yeah great. Great the they were called altogether together. I mean be very are to be under. Orders because the guy he's very demanding, but when you watch as somebody who loves football. You. Can't please everybody. Daniela's you know it was. Season was. that. We had so much. Let it go vow funds who? Had A couple of good results, and they were bemoaning the fact. We've never thought them and talk about them in the show. An show for a couple of minutes came out there. Don't believe. Don't? Why would we talk about them? How'd you remember that grade? Because I've gotten memory. Scott. Remember Craig, which Club do you believe should sign Jack Greenish if? Not Relegated really stay at the club. Just yes. Jack Really. Pool Difficult one don't seem mindsets. He don't think they'd be interested. I think you're looking at. Looking at. Arsenal would he would improve arsenal. certainly improve Tottenham. Thank those of the kind of clubs whether. They need him though with. What looks like. Some appeasement and the POGBA situation relooked happier and he's played a better. Multi, saying the new. Deal and then they've got Brennan. Fernandez so that that came. Ruled out, but we'll have to see. Frank Cannon retired professional footballer become a license fee for referee. I'm sorry, can you say again can? I can retire proficient for? Yeah, yeah, of course if you didn't is interested, don't ask me. I didn't I never wanted to be a referee. I think it would be better than any other referees because. They know football. They played football and they play at that level, so they will be good. Why don't we? We've never seen it ever you can. You can take you. You have to go through the same courses. Everybody else can I mention another Molotov mentioned another channel on here I. AM with and if you've ever asked mission for anything before well, our friends NBC sports. You remember grimly so. I think it was Lee action I don't know. They went and try Jimbo that done no. They did a low segment and I. Went and tried to cut three years ago a new winner Graham. Whoever it was ropy might have been the Moscoso. Don't know say. You're just saying. Yeah the NBC crew, and they went to referee a game like an amateur game just to see understand how difficult it was. A, thank. Thank Grim Lizzo the referees as he was assistant and he said that was unbelievable. Deficit to do and so. Is An, so don't get a hope of any ideas. I note bosses main that he's GonNa send. NETCO and Heslop, and and mark not, and can you imagine courtier referees? At least a whistle when keep keeping quiet I, suppose you know. You Know. One thing, former professional could do at first to help the referees. He's to be involved because we are good at seeing if there is a tree from the striker, all those defendant food, the shirt of it was a real attack Oh when he did, he didn't do accidentally accidentally, so I think we will be good at helping referee. Big On the on the field I'm not sure we have the good reflexive. We were not used to that, so it would be as as Christian and always been when we tried a nightmare, but. Yeah we be helpful? Yes, I actually missed the foster done in our fault, because frank was Chelsea the good old days when when it was There's a lots of. socializing after the game and he said we'd be good in the bar. I Guess slow after the game. We agree. Please Levinger. All? My God, they don't do that anymore. Get a lot to CASA and. The water in the package, no full off erupting cotton will. Be. Given Steve's Odor I'm not sure you'd want him in the virus on occasions. You don't WanNa be in a snow room with Stevie. Sometimes, we honest. Show and chocolate would be shocked. To Sleep. A good law. He'd be gone. Okay Eric All David Beckham Frank. O.! Eric Cantona, the king come on when he came back from his band, he made Manchester. United winning the championship. The Premier League Scoring Games off games in all one Neil, he'll call of. Where Newcastle Fourteen points. Difference ahead. Become was. was everything it was global. He was. He was a fantastic player young player. And some guy, he had everything but I think. What comes on the left to Manchester United was something incredible. You know that. Sing songs for him that they know what to Manchester United and how important and decisive that he's been for the clubs or yeah. Yeah, I have to go to the Frenchmen for Frenchmen Greg. Yeah. Well with both played against both of them would say Beckham. Don't realize Beckham was a great player as well. People think the brand. Is Not and never wars what? It was, but that wasn't. The biggest Fossa vis a vis Colin was. He's on talent. But when he when Ferguson fail is just getting a little bit to beg. Injustice got rid of him. Crawled over broken glass and dead for. A dead when he kicked comfort. Fourthly Crystal follows then some v. e.. That's because he knew how much of a genius. Continental was. A relatively short period that man united so I'll just go continental frank was ever lost in translation moment in the dressing room why you didn't understand instructions. How coaches get their message across, and it seemed West. Players don't all speak the same language. Well I have to say that the. Coach could Willett and and valley and after a run. and. Rainier was Gustavo. Poets were standing to us until the finished on the bench, and they don't want to sleep anymore, but so far into understand the coaches. But. We had A. Captain Dennis Wise. Man He took me like three years when this in a world of Denise Wise. because. Well the only thing I was I was understanding. It was the F. Word. and. And otherwise you know is a cockney and cuts words in half like each year Kevin each was doing uh, as well and the other words like Franken. Use your dog in bone and his. Sorry. Yeah, that was that was we were lost, but I was the only one that wasn't the only one you know I think Jeb. Zola picky lost with Dennis wise and each. For was only two in the English language when he first arrived at Chelsea after a couple of weeks, and he thought the all new Wadsworth shut up. Frank, Frank. Friendship was. Frank couldn't speak a what when he came mentioned before, neither kid could gentler. Golly that was started told many times on here. Why is he wrote? The Dennis Wise wrote Waltz Forum translated from. Italian anguish, but he was changing the translation to swear words. And it took reality We can turn to TWIG. was actually wishing people good morning by telling them to go and get lost. Much more fruity away. I imagined yes. Yes. Let's stick with. What was it like to play Dimitri Carleen since cameras now conceded forty goals this season, the most by keep Chelsea in a season since Karen back in the ninety, three ninety four campaign well well careens Dimitri when when Dmitry. Front wasn't there point, but when Dmitry occurring signed. He was a long way as the Russian number-one. By along show on. unfortunately when he came in. It was a Chelsea. Say aim including myself was. Really rebuilding and struggling in Glenn Hoddle Command so we were down near the bottom of the league that point and so we're shipping a few goals, but he was a terrific goalkeeper Fella. He was one of the most agile goalkeepers of I've known. Jealousy was incredible, but it just didn't play in the best to Chelsea says and so it's difficult to compare but he's. He had a terrific career, and he he stayed in England and never goalkeeping coach. So, yeah, it's I wouldn't be blaming Dmitri for the goals. Shipton dot period of Chelsea's history, have your. Settling what my? Book. I'm blaming Johnson. Yaacob kill Burke stevie clock on. Frank's clearly on. Oh, they. Blame the Hawks. Okay, final question, what if Franken his teammates doing that? Free Time during competition such as the euros of the World Cup. You didn't have ipod. You didn't have any technology law. Black and white TV visit. Yes, we were. We were discussing about to the world. We're. Discovering the area around when we wear, infringe was very hard because we're. We stayed in in the camp. He was like a castle is in the middle of nowhere in south of Barry's so sometimes I was escaping the in the forest, but that was it but nothing much to do I mean we you. You train you each you sleep. You train you eat to sleep. Massage, that's it and then and you work out when you when you know the in the first eleven you know you walk up and I was working out Vincent Candela during the euro almost every day tried to be good shape. You know for the for the sun in the after after the world, Cup, for the euro. That's it. Craig died Jehan. You're euro. Ninety six creek road was quite clever because he we stayed at a an old country hotel outside stratford-upon-avon. Was Miles and miles from the nearest pub right, so he was, so we spent time at the hotel there's. And Son Remain Franz two years later for the World Cup. We were a lot closer to the local establishments. And we used to just play some. sports games at the hotel, but it. We were allowed out because I. Think I run a week between games at the World Cup. We were allowed for a libation as long as common sense was used. which I think is very. Group. Of Policing. Twenty two months squad. Yeah, I'm sure that went really well. Yeah Yeah. Symbols To drink. Lesson GAFA. Flushing sensible thought process around this? We'll just go to the local village. And we'll only have a couple YEP. When is it? Is.

Has Solskjaer Proved His Critics Wrong?

"Welcoming Solicitation ESPN AFC on Don Thomas. What lineup we've got few on today. Show shock a them sure ropes and Craig Burley with me as we reflect on the two thousand nine hundred twenty twenty premier league season, who saw man just united of course finishing third, eventually booking place in the champions. League next season. This is only gonNA Socia- had to say of the game when he was asked about predictions of united, finishing outside the top four, and it sends a message to his critics. Night didn't seem like you were expecting because all the predictions about six or seven so. Right if I'm getting criticized, that makes just stronger and believe more in what I'm doing and. please. Don't to because you can be complacent, so that's just the way I've made, but I didn't know until a few days ago because I was just reading through. Just. Just discussing so I think third with his team squads where we've been. With the rebuild has been a massive achievement by everyone. Craig I, failed drones Utah with. His harshest critics improved you wrong. No. On the please don't praise too much is is laughable. You know get an NFL not some for Manchester Manchester United as club really to celebrate, but as far. The bar has fallen. Let me give Glenn Give me some figures here. How many points done did united finish with this season? Of Top head. Well I'm GonNa tell you sixty six. Do you know how many points united hot last season. Sixty six right. What's happened here and by the way? When Marina Youtube onto second the year before they hit eighty one point so. Another one of the lowest ever. Tally since and. Left the club. That's facts your what happened here and yes, united of a little better on the I, there's no doubt that particular since the Fernandez Salem but wars happened here as the others have regressed. taught them a twelve points Wa- soften last season. An arsenal of fourteen walks off last season top without. Chelsea and most of of expected this hovered the lowest leaks points total since two thousand fifteen sixteen season when they finished tense. But that was kind of expected with the problems that Chelsea high login. Ha's having to transfer bond, being an inexperienced manager to most of US came to figure on this show. That chokes here. We struggle I think most of us. Haden's united and the talk for which is so, says a greater achievement, but let me tell you. They have the same points tally as last season. We have thirty three point guard, and sorry. If forty figures are e, but they have a thirty three point gap deliver poo and last year was two point gap to Manchester City should have managed to enter the talk to the. And the Champions League for. The points of the same that are on the I. There's no doubt about but praise. For your points off the lead I. Don't think so. Robert Yeah I would agree with Craig to a certain degree. They had that little purple patch a few weeks ago. Where played some good football i? Think the size. Had to deal with them at times looks lost four or five games. Three of those games including the Cup semifinal when I'm not sure. If I was the coach, I'd be looking at going out to the side of the pitch count plant in the back because the opposition of president. You copped play along the. Front and it looks to me as show a Socia- sitting on the side. Just let the game meander at times. He's relying on the plans to do outstanding things. Rashford get a goal out of nothing. To to? Finance, he's picking out these policies, but the game plan in the last guys petite against Southampton Particular Against Chelsea. In the semifinal bite didn't know how to combat what the opposition was doing, which was a high of press or and Joseph. Guys being really compact, allowing to play through the middle, and show an unmet united and social didn't cope with that, and that's why they lost against shows. That's struggling at first off against Southampton Socia- needs to improve the tactical. Excitements united so the next being negative. Anti Robert Considering what they are fourteen points. On. All gone all gone on. Hold on. Why Should we began the streamers Oh and the pom-poms, because the finished third place and thirty three points behind Liverpool fifteen points behind months sexy, who were hopeless by this time, those who had a half a defense for the majority of the season, it couldn't defend. You. For fifty percent of the season and we wanna get the OH. This is brilliant. Manchester United. Sorry Rapporte, and they have the same amount of points sixty six. As they had this season before when so scar had six months job to please spare me the all. Don't start praising me. taught them were hopeless. Asked were hopeless and Chelsea struggle because of a squad on top. Low Lester hung up for a long long time, but the engineers. The end all right, let's throw a party because Manchester United punish felt a country mile behind the top. That's the point rogue as the point I think make. The Not Saying! Of this great. Do you register huge doubt and Tempe. Between Liverpool and city in terms of your squad, and your managed tactical knows to the point of the matter is the you were saying they couldn't get rid of him. If they going to move forward, they need to do. Not Change. Why would that change? Your expectations. Surely the he's Manning, he's. Got The four. He's causing. dopey others regret taught them imploded. Arsenal were hopeless. Chelsea had their hands tied behind their back and still meet into the talk four. They haven't super exceeded. Expectations Manchester United, because the same amount of points as last year hermit teams. Do I need to say that? He has got to prove that he has the tactical knows to sit there and take on the best managers league and closed like huge gap at the top. Not Sit there and say an paranoid way Oh, we read through the criticism and we saw there. All fence skinned and look we short everybody I'm sorry you didn't show anybody you pretty much. The same as last year jinx with a little bit more swagger, the end. Sorry Craig shocker once again. What do you want shocker? Quietly joined not. Listen to understand everything that everyone is seeing. I'm all even little sympathetic to socio scar doing. A liberal victory lap give them the criticism that he's come under and where they were in January. But Craig's right Manchester United. Are Huge Club the fact that they're closer to Bouma than their words, a Liverpool. Suggests that so shy shouldn't be doing that. Much of a victory lap defy got into retail four by beating city on the last of the season, the same necessity that over the years of only managed to keep hold of two of their big styles and embodiment and Schmeichal. They've lost content. They've Lost Mahrez. They've lost. Maguire to Manchester United suggest that for is good. A finished as it may seem on paper. Manchester United are a long way from where we expect them to be. Think many expect them to be but give them how. They said they ruined by over recent years. You take what they give you this time around credentialing et done if money united had talked to deter boys the talk. That would all be about humble pie, even if they squeeze themselves and between Liverpool and a very average mindset, you their season, our Macapa. I'm going to say that, said decent job, but the clumber into taught for and the last day of the season. Against the photo year the big teams that normally go on for as no way for celebration lob, and I thought by has interview by his wads terminology on the Fox he's. flicking through the negative criticisms telling me. Next year he's going to be under big pressure. Because we know mindset, you're going to go and spend. We know the back in the Champions League. We know they're going to go out and be fought back. Four and Liverpool. Not GonNa set the Hans, so they've got all to do when he proves. You can do that and much those two. Then you get, the president deserves, and till then I don't think so just this last word on this anyone know how many points I got last season. Compare Sixty six. Exact same as You say we know answer. Check meanwhile Chelsea to place in the Champions League as well without two nil victory over wolves oppose the big talking point leading out to kick off was the fact that Catha was dropped willy starting ahead of him. This is what Franken had to say about that decision after the game. Did We? Haven't kept enough. Klay Cheeks is not a definitely not just a reflection of he that something that we have to work on his. That same look is how we try, and then maybe how we recruit generally gone. A Madonna pinpointed on Capitol kept decision, said before the game was a choice on on probably racism foam of property, racist situation tough time for him when I felt really coming in with confidence of the bacteria forming mentioned last week. We'll be kind of what we need to die for the Guy so wanna jump full beyond. The also game next week you'll be wrong. He's Gone Shocker, but the problem is you get rid of it. I don't know, but this is as clear signal as seen from a manager. Regardless of how long he's been in the job that somebody plus the requirements. After you bring in three, and then now you drop him again for to really cover gyro. I'm giving what Franken said that there's no question in my mind. Eddie Mona I know. He speculated about this for some time nausea. The question and cap is mind. That Franck doesn't want him at the club the challenges. How do you get rid of him? Giving what you paid for them? Given what his salary is given what you've seen from him over over recent weeks. WHO PICKS THAT TAP? I'm not sure that anybody does. I could only see a home for kappa back in spend somewhere where that is I'm not absolutely suits, and and nobody else sadly too would be willing to pay the kind of money they'd. I'm sure would would command so Chelsea have to dip their own pockets and getting him partially of their books. That's that's not an easy so crank. This is something that we've talked about a lot. The whispers where they weren't make a long time ago, that frank didn't really rate him, and that is obviously now explode into the fat. You drop your. Keep her the most expensive keeper in the world for most important game of the season. Yeah he's toast. These toast is gone. I think even of Chelsea can't get rid of him. Frank Lampard probably going to play. Really A as a number, two goalkeeper has been for many a year now. That's a scenario the read. The lump choosing a number two backup goalkeeper his copy. It has been for a while. Over the most expensive kipper on the plant. And that game that he knew he might have to get something of now. We know novelli caviar is going to play next week anywhere in the final, because he's played it in the Cup games, but it wasn't going to give them a game. Frank, Lampard just to get them fresh. And up to speed for the Cup final. That was too much at stake. Coal but I think again Lan Party Sean that he's not. He's not threatened to make these calls, and it could have backfired on. It didn't shock is up to the right I. Think Lonzo going. Check and see unless you've already what? We've got to get this guy out. There's no way inhale. The anybody is reaping Chelsea. What they paid for him. They wanted to do business to get to get somebody else in the going to take ahead. Pick something up there that I'm pick up on craigslist, said really copiers is number two, and that is absolutely right now. Psychologically mentally. There's a big difference between being a number one on knowing you're going to play we can we coat and being number? Number two really Kobe Euro is knowing that you play two or three games, and then you might be out for six or seven weeks, and then you come in and do the same bass where I caviar is right now. He will be good for two or three weeks. It'll be solid. We'll make too many mistakes, but if you play them over the longer to you, I think you start to see a regression in those performances, and that is A. A challenge really Cobb Aero is a number. Two and we'll be a number two until he decides to hang up his gloves. No you coming in at number one unless it's look around the premier league whether it's a Henderson poor for somebody as you can bring in who shown that they can do it in this league. They're going to look at that and say well I want to get as much money as Keppel on on. Here's the challenge if you. You can't offload Kep. If you keep remonial books, nobody would they're sold of being a number one at a club like Chelsea is going to come in and say well I'm happy getting fifty percents of the money that kept his own because I'm playing a big club like Chelsea. That's that's not gonNA last. If you get them, get them to do it for for one season so now all of a sudden. You've got to pose on huge money one. A reliable number two. That's a lot to US financially. Has Lampard handled this correctly Robert? Yes, because when you look, there's three things goalkeeper needs. He's GonNa be donut in the. Coming into the box if he's not dominant in the air, he's got a great. Chop stuff up if he's Naser. Those two is not very good Gawky, but you're also looking for goalkeepers to be good with the bullet. Fa from what I've seen kept over the last year. He hasn't been doing it in the air. He hasn't made up for that by making magnificent sites and he's not very. Direct or it doesn't make the right decisions when he's the. So that's why Franklin what in one guy he had to go with what he thought was going to be best goalkeeper, and that's the last of just said he's made. A good decision is being brave enough to make that decision. Franklin potty showing that with Pulisic he shown that we Jerus- leaving him out for long periods before bringing back. Franklin, buzzed are very good job. I don't think he's done a good job with a key and he's on his way. I think done nail. The coffin lead was already down, but I think. But the nails bin Hamad then there was a couple of occasions recently. Since the restart, the false one was was at palace with the. Goal which you know, look from initial. In initial exciting. I view that looks like a great goal, but when the replay commend goodness strike, because it was, it went in the sense of the goals, and here we have a goalkeeper six foot four. The second one was leather and it wasn't the Trent Alexander. FREE KICK! It was great it was the flopping around. From crosses that robe, which is touched on nail, there was one ball in particular that flashed across sick dogs, and the second half against Liverpool, and it was all. Chelsea, players will show in Carepa because nobody in the ground. And the microphones, and so clearly there's a lack of confidence for management onto. He's on. He's on playoffs and the goalkeeper an. F. The coffin lead wasn't already down then it certainly was after two occasions. He's gone, and that's going to be an interesting to see what move and her Chelsea call for. Is the number one? I may regret bringing this up. Chelsea got sixty six points as well craig this season. Yeah. Well. Get Long season. Said well he to. Chelsea got leads Chelsea got their point. Monologue Chelsea got the worst points tells us the Fifteenth Sixteenth Season when the returned with fifty points and finished tens, but that wasn't wholly surprising. Bearing in mind, only lampard second season in. Fossey's? Pointed this many times he lost one of the best player in Europe, and he's in high. Teen Tame. Transfer by. Billy still bro in Don listen. Up to I. Get everyone. Came, didn't he? Six million to listen. Let Me Terry so let me limitation. Coffee is. Their transfer Bon, the was one or two players commend. None of those players were saying by the manager. The manager had no room to maneuver in the transfer market. He inherited the squad made no changes to the squad because he couldn't dot is the point other managers around the league saint players. There, well Chelsea and frontline part. No I'm making myself. Crystal clear inherited a player who was at the season. Decide by. Some donkey, it prolific. Who is key so then being in the Champions League. Well, not the start of the season. He wasn't up, but now it has been. It was the team. Lesson. You're arguing against yourself. Whether you lake annoy. Chelsea had a worldwide transfer bond and lump loud a scored this year that he inherited. Please tell me something I'm saying as factually incorrect, but inherited a squad that finished third. and. Make any changes, and then lost eating. Ha's out till Real Madrid and still finished in the top four in. Helmet. Chile en create. His fourth and it's Ross League. And he didn't lose any defenders yet. You've gone from what thirty nine goals to fifty four goals this season. Yes, they've had problems at the bar. He knows that he's tried everything plus in front. Lampe Lake Holy Goodness Oh scar. Still has approved right. I'm not I'm not arguing against. I'm saying Lumpar. There's a better manager Solska I'm not saying. I'm just saying he had bigger problems. And both managers have have to Ulta. Prove that they can pick the gap between the top to the fact, had source cows been there longer and united a bigger club. That's why I've been saying all along that. There's a huge question mark and my opinion whether he has the Mon- even if they rebuilt the squad to take their point guard. Is My point. It's not difficult to understand Romeo. Wh You have to say about, Franklin. What he's done well, he's changed. His mind on plays. The hardest thing in management is when you've made your mind alone. He didn't really want, but eventually as the Chinese. Managers prepared to do the show. Courage didn't want Jerem anywhere in the want to tell me I even having that same, but he still managed well enough so that when he needed you ruby. Well with some of the other places, as well Georgina APP for several weeks, and these in back in, and she'll g now. Apart from that tackle against Liverpool, but he's had the ability to change his mind on blast, and that's a very difficult thing to do is shall we? He's got some understanding of how to manage people stubborn. Stuart Robson available on the Gavin Gills podcasts Juliana.

Apologize Terrible. Take on the Dan while she. Woke means the latest addition of extra time. Thank you very much as always feel. Tweets Shack Craig and Robert with us to answer some of them. Robo is Brennan, is a butler. The coach somehow did not win. Live the tide, so in two thousand fourteen, and now missing out until four fifteen points behind V. I understand they had injuries, but still. Won The wall were doing in lockdown because when they come out, lockdown did look particularly fit. They plan quite as organized as they were before the lockdown where they would an exceptional side, but you have to go back to their injuries, and these some of the interest Ricardo. Pereira business the right back athletes the second best right back in the premier league. He's out some deploy in the last couple of guarantees, but excellent send-off and chill, who was at left back three of the back four rap for those last couple of games and recovery for longer than that so I think you have to go back to the injuries. That's why they did send for. been everything at Celtic didn't. Only shoot referees speak to the press after map, so they somewhat accountable for the decisions they make shack. Yes should. You see other leagues do it, and to very good effect. We all understand that referees make mistakes from time to time. He also not. Quite sure how interpreted situations speak to the press. At least you've got the breadth better free for that I. Think when they do make mistakes. They're perceived to make mistakes and you hear nothing from them. For all kinds of interpretation, including arrogance, I think it works well when the price of we've seen seen them do it in Australia, for example as been received very well. Would you like to referee off the game? No I really don't think I don't see the point because I think it would be a never ending circle because you get an. RIMMA, John List or a TV radio. We'll do you draw the light. Why did you give that decision? Water without tackling the seven. And you end up, just hovering over explained. The. The make decisions based on their judgment clearly a. Those human editor and they're. The only thing I have a moment is the continual lack of. Going over to the monitors to referee the game. from one site. That's the only issue I have with the refereeing. I'm really I'm really not bothered mixed after the game has made, a mistake made a mistake. What you're gonNA gain from satiny are trying to explain it to everybody who brought you commenting on the Brentford Gang yesterday? Obviously what the sages of the championship one? Avar in these games, it doesn't seem to make any sense. So they don't have them in these games, but there was decisions that were wrong. The penalty was a penalty to start with because he don't touch on the forward. Nick, any touch on the and the sense of change. The Game Brentwood could not get promotions of the family because of that Sandy. The, They think Klis. Why does the day, but what does? Because because it didn't have during the normal league season. what wouldn't be get half playoff scenario, which is clearly. Another run the games nothing to do with the League leaks. Relegated peeler promoted automatically mid-table. These teams of underwrite to be. Fighting, for one spot is going to change their club potentially forever. Financially anyway and yet we can't put Vr in there because we didn't have it during the normal season. Cavendish stupidity that we have this spor. Referee should come over and explain themselves. Because for example there rob was saying the referee made a couple mistakes the game. What's he going to come over and explain why he's made those mistakes. That's not gaining anything for anybody, but the problem is is the. Technology and how to use it, and then go dot is the biggest issue. Shock. Why does damn continue to deny you your? Fly. Nice shock from giving the fans his power rankings. I have nothing to. Do you continue to deny funds? Wish! You are not replying to emails. Entitled Power Ranking Shot. That's not. True I haven't received emails titled Parks. I. Suppose any emails text messages our voicemails that have rankings. And there. He's an automatic boat and delete button juice says. Right, let's get to the business end of things. Although when will it Robson publicly? Apologize for his Ariffin takes disrespecting the Dan as a manager. Nas, for how view is expected to take him seriously again. Well probably know. Profusely? The. Time wasn't doing particularly well seamless over the state of four couple of Champions League games beaten easily in the preseason games failing salute shambles bio was problems with the manager. The manager wants the amount that was going wrong the same with. Rodriguez that was going wrong and it looked shit. That was thinking bots. The players Dan altogether. It helped the false allow to deploy particularly this year photo I. Apologize to Dan because he's eventually showed a great deal of mine management I'm not sure he's the best coach in the world, but is man management. A very good place seems to be exceptional, and he did well to win the title. What's the worst? Take you saying that about Donald Craig saying that United States should have asked. Are you going to social? And now he's lead them. Able. Urge you to? The table. Massive points total of how many sixty six poise all. This whole Nieto only. Ten eleven eleven wins behind Liverpool. Fifty three joins while. Just going back to Madrid from moment, it does show that preseason friendlies really do mean nothing. It wasn't just by was based mainly on what we saw pretty season, but there were two or three games right at the start where they didn't play, but remember they played down the Bruges in the qualifying round of the Champions League then Bruce. Brian a couple of goes up against around Madrid in the Champions League and they were totally caught on the counter-attack. Lose all over the place. At one point I did look fit. It looked as done any work, any tactical idea and suddenly together, and you have to give him credit for that. You know we talked about landfall turning things around and change these mind. What was it that change? The Way Ron Madrid played off six games. In is on a is down. But not yet. No, no, no. Mine management is good He's still a little bit worked. Do probably tactically and. A little bit of work to do to make a top budget, maybe one day of managerial Madrid. When full champion this I've got to say, I love this public apology could be public apology for opinion that. It wasn't really an apology though I, like I like was said. Just. Courts Ville. These realized. Publicly apologize for having an opinion and maybe someday proves you wrong i. mean surely that's. been set and watching these Mondays shows an analysis programs where people defense for months and months and months until something goes well with a club and then go or said that was going to happen. No, he didn't. He Shot Defense Italian, said. Wow I! Don't know we'll have to wait and see. How The seems like fancy forgetting the three month break, Robbo, complaining the off season is so short the players will be fully fresh by the beginning of the season correct. Yeah. They should be the spell of. Space Time the players that go to the champions clubs that were the Champions League at that much of a bright, but some of the other ones. We'll have a decent prego. From for the rest in the damn level rest now for a month. Before, they start training again. It should be a problem. The pledge should be fit. Come the start of the season. The problem might be at the end of the season with those players of the European Championship. Done. If we have any of these discussions during the season starts up again. If anybody comes on, anybody's there, there have been courted. More than about players about fitness about tiredness. Lock of breaks. We're just going up chill mill of them because there's robles. We talked about this last week. The players have to harping on management. Hop torn about rest winter breaks. They had three months. A fifty three months complete rest complete raced then hit some preseason treated then have. A Concertina. program. But then they're going to get arrested again and then we crack on. Chopped players slightly different slightly, but even not. It's been been been redone to out football rather than the two games. So, let's hope not have discussion. When the season twenty twenty twenty one season styles about sports, scientists saying the players are tired. Let's not however. Is there a difference, a Concertina and accordion? Well. I!

Gab and Juls: Man United's Best Performance Under Solskjaer?

"The. It's Thursday I'm glad he's jewel. It's the Gabba jewell show Joel's We saw one of united's greatest performances ever. Did we the Champions League back times going on big weekend ahead? But we have to start. With what happened what's happening Barcelona on Monday by Tomato resigned? A. Let's start with the game because they were fighting event this we did not get to see that are non don't messy showdown because Cristiano of course is. Positive for Cova De. Very good to send his welcome message office treadmill. But you know really hurt him not to be right yeah you. Put. Lives for this yeah. They played the Game Barcelona one two nil. Barcelona, absolutely rude graded Uber surprised. I was surprised because. The class in the classic from the weekend we set it on Monday I, don't think he was not convincing. However, the changes that were made after give him credit for that work that whereas we're showing the. Social Our love and we're showing Kumon yeah. I. THINK WE'RE COMING LISTEN TO US watch the show because he. Drug boost and we said you. Could play the he wants to boost gets in midfield. I think really well got his former team as well with free young next to him at least for the first half then moved back to. To Send them back for the second I thought they played well, than bill makes a big difference in Iran side and you see that Mitzi likes playing with him switch from macy to them beyond good belly. We thought I mean again. I said this was. Dementia I don't I don't remember seeing how he might have had better games Marshall owner, but this was one of his best games except for the finishing. To work on Bergen Spurs, for example, while a couple of seasons ago, he was very good. He has that talent that I even miss I think Messi respects him for it because for left for us all the pace is fantastic I think that world Petrie on the left maybe more comfortable position for him work well, and then Greenman Affront I've said it many times give him give him a run Okay missed it. You missed a couple of chances hit the post early this big one later on the board for messy but we saw more in one game between. Than we saw all season and maybe even all of last season. At the beginning with back. Heel Dabo through a mess young in the second half and I think this could work just give him a bit of time together. Now all that said if if you're you've. You've ever really really poor but then I think this is the funks is one of the things into football. The penalty that Benedetti gave away and I. Can't I don't know what is up with this guy state of mind right now, I feel sorry for him because that's key is a genuinely nice guy. He's a warrior, the Lai we've seen him be great player but between what happened at the weekend in his performance for you Between the penalty that he gives up, he just runs into the back of him needlessly at the edge of the box. Crazy. Clearly I don't know what state of mind must be right now. But you know you take mental era out and then you bring in out of what is three disallow goals. Now, all of them correct decisions for offsides. We made the joke I made a joke on twitter I'll vodka. Oh yes. But vowed trick voucher. offered. But equally, is it a concern for Barcelona the I? Certainly one two of them actually really really close. You can can call. What your rubbish does. This case of striker runs ten yards, offside. These are very, very close calls. Is there a concern that Barcelona get gave those chances and even with that? You could have had a couple golden. This game could have ended up differently in terms of result, not in terms of performance. Yes. Maybe PK being suspended and not being there missing. Had had a big role to play in a bar from the first one where the run from Murata is really tight but there's there's older space the second third one I think he's off site I. Don't see how they could defend better than that. Anyway so I wouldn't be. Worried if I was them, I would be more about you. How you feel about that performance formats if you put aside, the three defense is the Three Gorges road out you progress. Do you see what he wants to do now? No I think if you have on the page and you don't get in the ball, you have an issue I thought the Bala was absolutely terrible in this game great as he was. At the weekend Clues Husky did what he could but not there yet. you know people came out and he talked about it's it's an opportunity to grow and whatever you can't have alibis and channels I. Guess what? He's not going to be there forever. So They need to learn from this i. mean the good news if you're you've is the league is your qualification is by far knock compromise you you can budget for for defeating Barcelona, even to defeats against Barcelona. But obviously, it's a reminder of how much beautiful needs to work. Good ask about Famille Twenty four hours after saying that he's not going to leave you're not going to Mondays at all. I'm not going to resign on Tuesday. He comes out and says, well, you know this is a very long pondered and thought about decision. I'm resigning. This is good for Celona well, done I. I was GONNA come to. The. First season last season in twelve years. They don't win anything. He run these club down to the ground. He was so hurtful for that club. So harmful didn't do anything good. It's all where he did some. Law Arguing I thought it was a disaster. You said many times. If you really love the club, he would have gone far earlier than on Tuesday but in the end his gone and the best thing that could have happened to that I mean the reason we talk about your presidents and stuff is that Barcelona setup is unique, right? It's a democracy ought column about this it's an imperfect democracy. It's on a real democracy, but it's raring football because even the barriers to become president at Ron Madrid are a lot higher than the Barcelona Barcelona. It's tougher to become president of Madrid Barcelona more more normal piano can do is vote. I think he did some good things but he made so many poor decisions and the club's financial situation with the wage bill I mean, Joe's their wage bill is something like one hundred and twenty million more than the next highest in the world. Is You seventy? Revenues. Mental. President who hires people to dish on his own players I mean for me, this is unforgivable hours. The. Internal audit cleared, but clearly, I think most of all, we can say this is an opportunity now for Barcelona to go out there to turn the page, there will be elections and we'll see where it goes. I think for sure became messy will be a part of shaping the future of the club they have to be. PODCAST listeners you're still with us because we feel like we need to delve into this a little bit more. Let's start with again, butto. I think it's good that he's gone because you're delaying the inevitable. I don't think he's only made. I have a piece coming out on this about the fact that. You know when you run a club, you have to make long-term decisions and you have to make short-term decisions. Condensates inspired by our friend and colleague Rory Smith's piece. Where we talked about democracy versus. Dictatorship when you own a club, you're dictate you're in charge. Can kind of do what you want. When it's a democracy in Barcelona it's not a real democracy is on a perfect democracy, but he's the closest to properly democratic club. We're members vote for president that we have. A lot more. So than Real Madrid where. Gene basically nearly a billionaire to go and run to be. President and must have been a member for fifty years or whatever whatever the top fifty years. Basically kind of set up so that the only person who can run around Madrid president looking. Really. Good ice but. One of the good long-term things that he did was he brought a lot of the club's retail licensing merchandising in. which is a bold move. It's a move that boosts club revenue. It's a move that's really gonNA pay off long-term. To became the first football club in the world to come close to i. mean they were like maybe can short of becoming the first billion Revenue Football Club in the world I believe the first billion club sports franchise. Any kind in the world But that was a no brainer. You could have the president and then fill about that. I don't know to no brainer when ninety percent of big clubs preferred to go without outside licensing. that. You don't have may senior squad either I mean Manchester United by Munich could have done yet could have done this. They didn't. It's not an easy thing to do anything to do well. Short term decisions. Run through them because part of the problem is if you take the long-term view, you take a long-term view, you can't make. You. Stopped short term reactions because the fans and you've got media and every time something went wrong. He often made the wrong short-term. Reacted short-term in the wrong way. So you saw it Neymar leaves. Boom let spend the money on on Bella delegates hurt boom. That's in the money. Malcolm. Who you know, start six games for the club and a lot of money here. Right. A superstar let's go and that's signed casino and the price keeps going up and up and up and up you know. Continue doesn't work out. We know the superstar going agrees man you know without wondering where he's going to fit. The whole messy debacle. Again, we're not privy to their conversations and promises the question who you believe. You Ninety. Nine percent of people to WHO's more trustworthy Massey about domain Oh mercy. So we've all kind of bought the messy version I. Don't know what the truth is. I'm inclined to buy the messy version would I do know he didn't handle it well? Come on say message definitely staying in other year. Yeah. How about I be the judge of that. Old attention that he created with his dressing room all season long last year we've had that of stuff come out in the press I'd be done talking I mean all the decision there was no direction. There was just nothing to pay cut situation. Yeah. Paulie appalling and again I think eventually your judges a prison, which is what the point you made about the Super League as well. What happened on the pitch and the success and for the first time in twelve years last year there was no titled Nothing. They did win I. Think Four. League titles. Seven years. On the flipside of DOT, the only advanced beyond the quarter-finals twice in those seven years in the champions. and. That's you know and you are a team with Leonardo messy. Exactly. But he can, and again you know he's in the boardroom he's not coaching the team or whatever, but he's. He's enabling these people eventually the bucks off within that is the that's a function of the football democracy but his Barcelona. Now we're GONNA. Have elections already talk of five or six. States think that timeframe is going to be ninety days, right? Yes. Catching up to three months and you have to have the election before them. During the season that's pretty extraordinary near the good news is if there are big decision to be made next year and the biggest of all his it's messy GonNa stay or not. Because I guess and of course, he has a future role, Kumon? The New People in charge will have a little bit of time to go and plan for more so than they would have had under the normal system. I want to ask you where does this leave? Because I made the argument that the people who made Barcelona. Great. Little history lesson for those who don't know. In the first sixty one years of Barcelona's existence, right? They won ten league titles in the last thirty years they won sixteen league champions, eggs, and other stuff. So we think of them is all there are massive club, but they haven't always been a massive and winning club. To Greatest Eras came with on Christ and also Christ offspring from. Whatever and generation? In two thousand. I think those guys need to shape the future I think. Chevy. Possibly Yester- message PK in different ways whether speaking out whether we're actually running for office maybe coaching the team for Chevy. This is something that we want to see. This is something that's important. Definitely, and you have to keep the deal dot club. Certainly the second part of the history you described we've seen it up. By a Munich for example, working really well with people involved in key positions at the clerk sometimes, it works well sometimes. Yeah. No. Over not, you're selling amid such as much to know bit. Over I think you see you see up. We. Madrid the okay. Some have more combined. It's not a great example. Donald Shirking does anything. You've got some roles where you more of an ambassador don't media, but you also have other positions where you are real influence and I think if you know that club if you've been a big part of it then helps you and so it has to come from the top. There have to influence the guy after top make their voice heard yet understand what's there and I was I xe for me. Is the idea of okay Luca Markova MasterCard Luca involved the people like that who now shaped club because they've been there before they know exactly what to do is a philosophy that they know the on board with it and I think someone like picking exactly do that. So what Chevy in yesterday? No without clever intelligent enough to run well, and one hundred percent I, agree with you there should be involved. I don't know that it's not by the way I'm not suggesting that this is an instant fix because be remember when they had the boot room. Sometimes you do need your people from the outside, but I want their voices heard yet. You don't I'm not saying, put them in charge. Let's have their voices. Let's have their voices be part of the conversation. Let's put our trust in the software in the members that they can make the right decisions. to He'd been a Barcelona member since the age of eleven right he was there since in different roles since two thousand ten, you know. So he was part of the rise up in official I. Think though that situation have become unsustainable file on on a newly. We've mentioned this before but Demirel sending off. Yeah. How you're the one legitimate fit? CENTREBACK. And now you're off to and you make a foul India positions huff agents not even like to stop someone scoring a goal and they said Okay how do I'm sorry we soft by the way the second. On. The still don't do it why Is Young you will learn he's been rush at times before even with the national team they will is what who said I. I can see what is coming from by know this is a learning curve we we learned. I'm just not convinced there's something missing there. I don't know why it is how come out and say that somebody made the point. I was talking to a former football executive in different countries. Who Said, you know what? It's important that you've continue with this line whether appeal succeeds or not. He has broken the mold. If pillow screws up. The next manager. Maybe two more. Gene. Whatever We'll we'll be empowered and enabled continue down this line. This attitude of playing these kids maybe people is not the right guy, but it is critical that you just continue with people able whether he's the guy for. I was thinking that maybe we witnessed Manchester United's best performance under older goner soldier or some may argue. But to delve deeper into it let's go to mark Coggin Augie. Thanks for coming on board. Do agree was this as good as we've seen united play in a long time. Surely under this manager. Well. I think. It's hard for you. I know I know this is a difficult because with social has been so many extreme highs and extreme in the humping. Policies prior to this the. First game winning one five, one at Cardiff which is. You know a group of homeless, but you have to talk with the class of the opposition. The the lead is the Bundesliga Champions League semifinals off season. You actually did have loan periods of in control the game. Let's not. But yeah, you know united ultimately believe them away with. A late Blitzer Marcus Rashford so I can't think of many best performances book with social. So difficult to pin down best worse because there's been so many examples of both well, what struck me about this game was obviously people will look at this and say look they played really well, they moved to the diamond which will get to that. But. United. Did it without arguably the two best individuals and Bruno Fernandez Rashford, both of whom came off the bench. Leipzig also had a number of key players out who think would have been very important library Mugabe. Saboteurs on the bench but. Ultimately though I felt what really impresses me about united is yeah they played on the counter they conceded the initiative, but it wasn't just sitting deep booting the ball over the top or somebody run onto. It was very active, very intense, very physical, impressed in midfield the price up the pitch. and. That's how they scored the first goal. So I thought that was really really encouraging as of course was the fact that. They moved to a diamond we saw find to be involved. which which is something that Gills suggests that I'm not the only ones. All of this is good. Right about how do you build on it? Yeah, it is good nothing beyond that. Being, you know a favor, this season Popa being one mason green of the you know the poll, the first goal no other midfield can make. Pasta Mason Greenwood for. The goal. When poked playing lot. He's best shows you what the player has the ace when. He's quite as focused and quite on his game was last night and I do think playing the League, help some of these places, hells. Pope. Nothing. More tactical game the primarily that there's less kind of defensive duties on on pompey shows and I think he he thrives in this environment last night and then against PSG apartment, it created. An and the first create assist for eighteen games. Jump is league. So it doing something, right? Because sorry mark you said something which I think is pretty extraordinary and I don't think I don't think you would have said five ten years ago. I think a lot of people wouldn't expect you said it in passing because I think when you watch something up host, maybe you don't notice the changes but you said the champion Zeke is less tactical environment than the prime you're not in some ways I would agree with you. Know also I think. That's a change I. I. Think that primarily. Demands Pompous attention concentration. That was the thing that jumped. Out I always trying to jump. More. Structured is gave what's happening in the primarily it gets. How posits if you play like Pogba who if you give him an a plan on what to do? He'll do it if he has to think for himself on the pitch thus when the problems start in the primarily thing for himself I just finally. Looked last night and look much better than it has been for a long time and whether that was because Fernandez wasn't there. You know kind of company is space whether it's because Monday was long silencer. You know do some running for I don't know what He. Thought. It took a criticism on social media on the beach before. So I thought it was okay thought. Involved certainly option Jesse, God. No agree on the big was good I think he had plugged. In favor position in the mid fifty three on the left. Is You years and then I also think it was really good performance. There were very clinical very efficient but I'm not sure what Naggus man was trying to do with his jacket first and then with these tactics and playing so deep. For me even with even without saboteur from the star even mutual. Make no sense. Big Issue. To. Deal with the big issue and then you guys gone about the tactics the jacket. Okay. Very simple. We've all been around footballers a lot of people who are in that football environment are footballing nerds. Some of them are way into fashion. Some of them only discovered fashion side a little bit later. Do not take any reason why say place said. Look mine is a rule breaker. He's not safe. I. Fully endorse the Jockey even objectively probably didn't quite work out the way he did Mark did did it feel like? You saw. Season and so on. Obviously very different. There's no shake there's no verner there were missing some key players. Do you think they played well up until that second go? I think they said they control the game but then United Levin's control again that's the way that you play. I thought that. The they were hot and cold show pump. McConnell look great. We had the ball. Defensively was very right at times is a decision I think he was exposed to less. So for me lights, they didn't like the best team in Germany right now the. The like you said, missing key players, they haven't really found it onset Lucy Verna but for for the Jackie I think is a great decision because normally talk with fog will defeat this moment soccer is insensitive he's not a real win window. Now I cannot believe the fact that you brought up Julian Nagase men's jacket before you brought up. Marcus Rashford. Talk of the United Kingdom what's left of the Empire Right now on the Commonwealth and all that Djembe. Ambi and the cat comes off the bench and scores a hat trick. It whether it's because he came on late and. Say Out to believe it was it was blistering pace and he's movement and. Finished as well. Tigers finishing can be a bit. Off being put last night it was it was excellent I think. It just needs to be maturing off the pitch no twenty three at the weekend and. On On Halloween Halloween yes. Scary and I think I made it pretty clear during the last couple of seasons when you're not doing the euro police that it was desperate to to being the Champions League and the the the it reminded bucking you know two thousand and four or five when united. Wasn't really performing very well Chelsea to dominate and the concerns that they had a great future people out ruining Renaldo. The House it be bucking the jumpers that he can be competitive to keep these guys in to make sure that the you know ruining another enjoyed the best use of the crew now obviously the that Casey, there and six. That really clicked into gear and I think with rush for Mason. Greenwood you know what? You'd have that kind of star quality going full but they have to they have to give the plot foltz before the trump he's leading up to the club. It's the onus to bring in the players and two mayt united competitive in order to make sure people at Russian and Greenwood stay beyond the next few years because if they don't, you know Marcus Russia some possible thing well, I want to be in the same. Level as earning Holland combat pay people like that. If he's not winning things that Monday nights. When someone else Jewish I knew that the doom and gloom negativity out even from from hogging even. Five win. Pundits thing ever leaders I. I spoke to somebody who said that there's a parallel universe where remember when Marcus Rashford. But before he committed his new contract, he was linked to Barcelona. A Universe where Barcelona's Marcus Rashford they never signed and congressman because they don't need because they have Rashford and all of a sudden. He's one of the best players in the World Barcelona aren't totally screwed up and. About to mail is still there for now and actually like. That was the past. I find extraordinary that we're talking about how united getting champions eight to hang onto Rashford Greenwood. But what I'm curious about obviously, we liked the diamond can you predict what the diamond if he does this again what the diamond you're from both of you what's the diamond might look like if he decides to continue with this obviously incorporating rostered and Bruno Fernandes whom he says out I, mean I think I think if he doesn't the diamond against. Austin on Sunday if he doesn't play Rashford centrally in that game I would be I would be disappointed but I will be baffled because clearly there is something there we psg and we're not talking about doing against you know leak two teams or Championship teams. PSG really with the diamond against lab seek again. Now, you can put Rashford and. Better Fit Rashford in Greenwood or Russia Marcio for the diamond. I think upfront. I think Marcellin. Rashford together for me makes so much sense of France and then and then you could bring Kevin. If you want, you can bring grin were later you can you play Sunday's in ten behind them and then that three Midfield Fried Maktum Rene and Even, bring fun to bake a be deep in midfield three if you want to have control of the ball. And the anxieties I think it gives you so many options that is crazy that we haven't yet seen in the primary argue I want your take care because I. I. Mean I talked about last time just to provide you about his obsession obsession with. United. Flying Winger Counterattack, and I've actually thought to myself. Remember back in the day when united we're really really good and who their wingers were and in the great ceramics teams trouble winning team. Gigs. Okay. Yes. He could run. But the other winger was David Beckham who's not really a winger he's really a central midfielder playing wide. Not exactly the fastest player out there either. So this is kind of nonsense so. This diamond a do you think it's a solution and be you like a whore your front what is your diamond look like if I was to go with this perhaps as early as the arsenal game. I believe he's still been yesterday. Chris. got from that great for money. So yes. Is Is. It's a good question because they have options in Midfield A. Danger sometimes when you have too many options at the monitor king complicate things by you know trying to rotate too often. You know if you could find combinations of message and Mattamy Modem together I think you have the perfect midfield if you're not because Maddie's experiences perfect for that. Jeff Goldblum action and put improved. Messages. His legs weren't but Montana has got all the energy in the world and all the legs I. do think it can be quite rush at times a seems to come onto. Could be a bit rash match nearly got himself. Sent off last night if I would know. When you see somebody come on for the first ten minutes when he comes on when he plays a seems to want to be like a nine thousand, seven, hundred field to lay marketing to hit some but it's not facing wants to kind of get stuck in think he needs to lose the. Sense of being. An enforcer of I think he's got he's got talent. So that's the basis. Muktar. Okay give me the rest of the time. Yeah. Well. Let me help Fernandez at the top. Yes. Yeah. But I'm just thinking of adopting stuffing has energy I don't think he can get pumper. He's not gonNA definitely, not going to play POGBA TO BE BRUTAL FERNANDEZ, together in pretend they're I wasn't he has he has. This is the problem that I think there's too many times so shocked. When did use apple by? When. Did he play the three of them together in a diamond? Not Susan's you but he has played poker. What I'm saying. Soil Shafi. Finds it difficult sometimes to. Make the right decisions because there's too many options available to so. I don't the best fit is I i. think it's hard to pin annoyed I. Don't think he's Daniel James they'll jesse lingo can discount those two running. On don't send the right does his. Third. Choice. Either Company in Russia. All Rustling, Greenwood Open Wind Kennedy who what do you like agreement. Okay. But going forward. When everybody's fit what you? If he does go front to what do you think the natural combination is? I think he's Russia Moscow because I think Greenwood still too young to trust when the regular come on. You know happy with that. Why Masa Rashford when Washington on the left day delinquent. So where the place over with each other I think About playing them through the middle, we're not talking about playing them where they. The middle together on the last goal marcial does great and just put it on the plate for rush for that I think can lead players I think Mason Greenwood is more of a center forward. Than Marcial. I always just feel like marcial is kind of like an off brand. Terry honorine who's not really a striker he plays there I I like the idea that Greenwood could actually probably hold the ball up better than. Marcial. If you're GONNA play the two which which you need. Obviously, they're not just going to sit in the middle. You're not going to ball I think if you play Greenwood also and then you can bring on Cavani to replace them. It's more seamless transition because they can do some of the same things. If you move from our Shell Rashford all of it, and then you bring in Greenwood or Cavani. Then all of a sudden you have another striker who's making. Runs. I do I do think I'm not a musty I think Marshall does. Let you know. If play a kind of epistemology, the the social. Something, Mafia the way that he he has highs and lows and I think the days must well, he's terrible but other days you can. It can take your breath away with things that he does in the way beat people and create an opening. I don't trust them. I'll sell enough in. The final. Great finishes ability to do think it's time to kind of let them. Drift off book for me at the moment is the best option alongside Marcus Rashford show some respects. And by the way, just to finish, please give me a break about with McConnell and Canetti young defenders. They're very, very talented happens to have enough day until the seventh to fifth minute they were. Down and how to make that many mistakes. Okay. Then rush foods and. The Teens where they dogs are. No says exact Campbell Army, not not by choice but because. Times out boy go. But also date were players out because if liners in there. Somebody who saved Jews Jews that's a good point. McConnell look. He's obviously a great great prostate book. Let's say that he he signed for united in Somalia goes you know it's an excellent a danger of the upon McConnell picks the wrong because I think. Him in the United Defense that would bring out the worst of the puck McConnell the kind of the traits where it can be quite Russia Times in an indictment in needs to play for the team. That's a better. Feel the. Best if I think. Feels like your job to discourage players. Who Jada? Twice. Before signing for probably not a good fit for. And come on man. I'll. Macondo. Right and this is a problem tall ball playing defenders have all of them. When they make mistakes. It stands out more those look slower on the pitch number. Told me the open the car no slow right when he's obviously not slow. But yes if you're a very tall and you have long legs, it's going you're not going to appear as quick. It's going to take a little bit longer to get going. Man. I just think you'd be five more than the. United. States can expose defendu. Tens on. The time who is gone next to him this this plenty of things that be different right now. Lindelof Yeah what People to judge, them. Human, Connecticut, Connecticut, and played for a long time, and then you just clearly run out of steam. An People still racing. McConnell was the first by come on. I'm just I'm just trying to suggest that if he played alongside high maguire but to Lindelof by it could be quite difficult for to sell down plays best fold. Yeah. I have a question of would you say the same thing if Virgil van Dyke were fit and you'd signed for you like When he work alongside Maguire or Lindsey. Because his experience and leadership would bring about the best around upon economy still developing as a player a great potential play the is starts to four years now I don. I. Think He's twenty two now but anyway, but he's been he he has the season's under his belt as a striker. He has champions the experience. I agree that Van Dyke is a tremendous leader, but I think ultimately, it also comes down to the players personality rather than what they've been through if you have the personality of a leader and you might know better than me. Are. Not. Linked captaining I x one. Thousand Nine Hundred Leadership is an issue with the League he's got other issues like in fact, dot com Ikano possibly as well. You know all all this experience van is older sure and he's a great leader. Van Dyke was playing what would you put in homes and Vitesse? Groningen and Celtic wasn't an Southampton he wasn't at the level of the Liverpool right. I don't know I. Just kind of feel that we're a bit. We're bit harsher. Call Centre backs. We are another physician if you Macau no in. January. Liverpool Nights. Because yes. On Dyke isn't that they haven't meet fillets abets midfield to protect the puck four. Yeah. I take your point. Yes. You would probably signed for Liverpool Liverpool also have a better manager and you get to play with Daikin they have a better team and Absolutely, I give you. All I give you all those things but. Because I don't see many independent living coach to become better defenders on this. Season and the you know you might you might. Other. There's enough things that cannot be. picky monitors. Up. Cheers. Thanks. To. Right I think that was more than enough augie. How about some quick hits? Madrid need lately goals to escape the two two draw against Borussia Moenchengladbach. WAS IT disappointing? And just Korean Bensimon not realize there are cameras and microphones in the tunnel rummaging played. Well, I mean they went down. Because play onto fantastic as well for Bob over other, they played well decorated knows of chances and then eventually I think draw affair resorts statistically use your first two games become very tough. But last season, they lost the first one through the second one this one and for carrying Ben Zimmer, he should know better in a tunnel, there's always cameras and my he was not happy with the issues he said to fundamentally. Swell Mom's life don't bust him the bodies playing against US which I've got no problem against I think followers things setting the dressing room. Playing with playing against twelve man come on. Man. Curry. Doesn't get for being hamstring injury in the win over Mitch. Terrified Jurgen KLOPP and Liverpool, as you would have left them, we just one fifth center defender as in Joe Gomez. For shortly, it looks like he's not as bad as with four originally and what did you make report performance? I don't a great performance. He changed the entire from the same mine. Didn't think you'd see security played really well. Shaquir evening Amino Divall Kariya, and Jota it different thing. He sent the cavalry on late they scored. To put the game away. It's huge I. Think I think for is going to be back. After the international break. WHO KNOWS ABOUT MATT? Tip. So looks like Gomez is GonNa get teammate from from. Yuki. Byron go away to Lokomotiv Moscow and when. I know you WANNA show, Yorkshire, Kimmy, some love, of course. Is called it should have been on ski. This is the kind of. Scored and here is Joshua Cambridge who's a right back or holding me figure holding back if you want to call him whatever there's nothing you can do is a wonderful talent and Sloppy from Bombay India we Norway's win anyway. Roman Abramovich returns to check in person for the first time in more than a year and they win funded across the down. That's why he went there because he was obviously in Russia gabby looks like today's no longer on the not step and he's clinched in a row now for Franck lump while Mindy Yeah. Maybe made a big deal out of that look I mean crossing I thought actually played relatively. DEBA- they hit the ball or not very good Chelsea took the lead through A. Massive. Defensive a screw up by the by the goalkeeper. Hudson door shot I'm still not convinced by how those pieces fit together experimented again. But I think, Ruediger. Is a big return. I think Ruder as a leader and he's got personality and I think Chelsea. Manchester City go away to Marsin Wins Joel's helps when Kevin Brian Starts Yeah. Of course he does and he helps when the position big mistake like Marseille giving gifting the go to but it was a good performance from city really bad for Marseille who They've lost. Eleven in a row in the Chimpanzee Montgomery one show of the record I don't want to see. You don't let me down Bruce Dome and get a big three points at home against Senate. But. It will be gifted that one. Yeah. Stupid penalty for his need to go to go away and early hollow converted by Sandra Erling Haaland of course scores a second because that's how he rolls. I thought this was a very, very flat performance from Dortmund uniting what they're lacking right now most of continuity. Other game and other two goals for my countrymen. We call moist whose last name is ever changing as they went to nail away to stumble doctor here. But Jules Neymar gave us a scary came off after twenty five minutes with a groin injury hopefully, not too serious. Turn it almost two hundred PSG hoping last night on on. Wednesday night so we'll have to see. Some. Kind of Formosa gain four goes in to give as many as thirty seven games for Neymar canal take a break into ahead by Shah who is. GOING TO BLAMING UP Ever blaming anybody look I mean I. I. was the show he talked about how bad into were into poor in the second half in the first half they created a bunch of chances. They really really did they hit the woodwork twice not that'll missed on enormous hitter they created other chances expected a gold at the end of this they had more than two I'm not concerned with us. I will happily criticise when inter create nothing and rely on somebody falling over the box of the counter here they create a lot of chances they did miss some intensity in can have they could've brought. Erickson. Earlier there's a ton of things he could have done better but overall I thought they were actually a little bit unlucky not to get all three points. So for this week Antonio Sorry I'm not having a going I'm with you. Now, there's another Kobe postponement league. Jewels this was inevitable. Yes, it is. You're right loss who already postponed last weekend against non this time against Moscow Friday night, they have eighteen positive tests eleven. Seven member of staff is crazy and again it's the congestion Fisher. We said, when are they going to blame to any of the Champions League Game Manabe? Planning until? Next year, for example so Crazy stuff that's sticky with last your live twelve plays a home for the trip to Benjamin Against Bruges this point Gab this was big but could have had for postponement to you. I think technically they could've I think the the rule say that you need a minimum of thirteen if than that you could. Postpone chose. Not to. In the end, they ended up bringing unders, Pereira who wasn't supposed to go. But I was technically not match fit. Whatever. The issue here I think has to do with the testing when we talked about it with trafficky meet the low viral load versus a higher viral threshold. I think has turned into a story. Now all they said, I should also point out lots are probably the worst club in the universe communicating in the open going on. They basically said nothing was a throwaway comment from. We only have twelve players. We'll take six guys on Youtube, but I'll leave you with this beautiful word when they ask you who's GonNa play for Lonzo. Until you was gonNA play lots of. Is Not. Love it serious clash of styles worthy of AJ. In fact, in the game between Madrid and south southbound in the end, it was fairly two goals that gave Shimon it a three two win choose because this be his breakout season why I think. So Sunday's game since she join Atletico from Benfica was fantastic. He's movement is so good to hear the overhead kick hitting the bar fantastic i. just hope for him that this the start of something big. was going to be a roller coaster Gab and he was finished to to did you enjoy Again. Much of it I thought it was. I asked this Guy Grovonni. Monster. Guys unbelievable talent are non with me. No. I think that this is going to be how things go to try to play electric back into fitness. Snot, quite going to happen I xe played well I probably could've could've gotten away. Yeah. There are tuning on the journal operative. Did more. But I think a lot of character to to go out come back prevents about making the difference goods. Let's not forget this is. Talking about software where they started from. Big Things, we need to be realistic city IAGO win over ran. Thanks to Luke too young gills can't work if he's a figure of fun or a serious center for Greek although Yeah Greg Greg Finished Grad move is West we're standing on and it was just a class apart but look young. If you play only strength, I, think he could be lost to. There's always a lasting dig out of under Madonna, turn sixty gap you want to help celebrate. So we have a big party we should be fun partying with go I mean he made the point that Oh my sixtieth birthday I want to score against England, but I want to score with my other half. I. This is one of the capital figures in history and the history of the game. I don't think there's ever been. We can argue about what the greatest of all time. Yeah. But I think nobody in terms of personality has ever dominated the way he has wellbeing at the highest level I go back to my earliest memories of doing his job as a journalist nine, hundred, Ninety, eight, world? Cup. We're in the tunnel was there but I was talking to. Talking daily to media right and I'm there with a group of journalists stopping billion Pele's talking think before the final actually is like well, the beautiful game or although Gary Engineer Bobbio I changed to the respectively but he is continually talking, and then all of a sudden commotion at the end of the of the of the tunnel and everybody runs off and I'm left behind you just basically just me. Pele's handler delay and delay turns and says, what's going on where did everybody go and the other hand goes and says, I think Diego is here. You go ahead and get. I. Mean this is the magnitude on. The manager when they played against France in Marseilles I think seven it was fantastic. So much carries mass I mean for good for bad and you know what to this day I got to stick with it. He didn't score with his hand. It was the hand of God, right? I. Saw we got time for today Jewish we'll be back on Monday this again do that how `bout that? Love the game love yourself to love your neighbor.

Gab and Juls: Should questions be asked of Solskjaer?

"The he's jewish. It's the jewish show. It's a drizzly. Rainy dreary thursday morning after some champions league action show. We'll have a lot to cover. But given the climate giving shall we bring in the man from up north mark. All good to help sort through this. I thought this was a game. That was very entertaining. Both united and perry senator man both played better than i've seen them play certainly united but did united missing opportunity here. They missed an opportunity because they only need to go through. And you know losing three one which made it very difficult for them to consider whether you didn't know the next week. I just don't think that socia- a manager always coach. He's a clear enough to to learn. Play for draw this. Don't go to in them. So i distinct associated. The way that knows is on the front four and calcium last night. I don't really quit the team selection. I thought that seems selection was fine the only change i would have made. It would have been to stick with dean henderson and goal. Oh but i think that's going to be developing problem that some point i think last night would have helped in terms of the game was this election was finally saw. The united just couldn't play different way. It's the same the from for them against share a week before and considering you just need a point. I'm not sure why you start talking. And by the way even without from four is espn in the first twenty minutes. And then i think united take a time to get into the game because because in many ways exploited the from four in the united setup and i just wonder if maybe he maybe saskia is going to be more cautious at the beginning because as you said the point was enough so i don't think there was maybe the need to go from for. Let's go organs blazing. let's see what happens. We know we're gonna lose goals and where where initial one drove would have been enough for you and you would have already been qualified now. What happens if next week you out and you have to go in the european league where i was just i was just not convinced off to say by the formation and the choices you made i mean as you know we we come away from old trafford qua- being confused and do what happened. Why it happened in going for the draw. i think that's the all. I said his strength. he's going follies defense. So i guess the attacking quality of killing by name of those. You have to be on the fall because he trying to sit back and defend all just hold the game against you're going to get beat. Okay you gotta jump in here sorry. It's eyesight united strength. Is the attack. They have very very fast forward. They're very good on the countertop. I'm not sure they're that good going forward actually against a team that that sits so you could you could turn that around the other way. And say hey. Why don't i look to play on the counter. A little more right man. Maybe that's what he wanted to do. Because i don't you know united were capable player in the county as psg defense equality and defensive midfield to a ps quality. I think it had to be more for. The change is difficult. Because i've never been a big fan of marshall. I think the lesson don't so often for me as a player that will perform one every five games when i be six games. I i've seen since cavani rod mockus russia's really raised his game and cavani. You'd see it last night at the title needs to weld together and i think russia's really inspired by seeing with the flip side. Is that when you look at marcial exposes how limited come in at the top level. The doesn't finish each. There's nothing if social how the best option shell that he could have made a change that made a little bit more than not diminish threatening debilitating. Somebody like donny. Van de beek. Maybe and maybe we'll play any whatever i got to the talking point in the in the first half we'll get more into this later but the first half obviously the head to head between fred and potatoes. You guys both saying one word. Answer you guys. Both think should have been sent off. Yes yes i. I probably do to but i just want to explain because a lot of people don't seem to understand really really gets my goat. How the ar works and what happened here. So the guessing just intervene when there's a clear and obvious errors can also intervene if the referee requests or if the referee hasn't seen an incident or hasn't seen it clearly enough now what happened in this case is he didn't it didn't see clearly he was behind him right so he goes to look at the monitor. This idea that always going to look at the monitor now. He's going to change the decision. No he had no idea what happened. He goes to look at the monitor. And by the way. I know that nicholas pays fresh on. Everybody's mind this idea that you have to send somebody off if they go head to head and they leaned forward. I don't know if that's a premier league thing all that that's not a thing. Okay maybe the thing in england but different leagues have their own directives that they give to referees. It is not a hard and fast rule europe wide. You have to look at the context of it. And i don't blame him in that context because it was not an aggressive head but it was two people going ahead. I think you book inc booking. Both of them are moving on. Might have been sensible thing to do or booking one or whatever keeping an eye on your smiling however however once we once you've been really well i did. Yeah social how to take him off. A halftime percent hundred percent and argue. We left the stadium together last night. And that's the we. We agreed on his where for secondly okay. Let's let's say that only leave them off and on match my age vanderberg apart by. It's not even if you don't have any options on the bench. However if he stays on the page e. has to be professional enough rights experienced enough to say you know. I look with this one not have to be on my best behavior. Have to be really careful. Even the referee even subtle coming out of the tunnel in the second. Half six to come down because you know and then what does he do you sense off again. Arguing gonna give you the final word here quickly. The party says your man look like potential european champions. No i don't think so. I just want you back to what you said about the referee cup. I think that the should always be red card. It wasn't heavy had an terrain intercept reports as well. But the rest of you didn't really look at it. Went over there for maybe three seconds just turning buck in deciding on the other car. you know. We're all kind of schooner of his concerts. You put you said maybe we need to look. Maybe it wasn't that day was after it depends on the context. I would have had no issue if he'd send them off. All i'm saying is everybody last night. the pros blah blah blah people. Frankly should know better including ex-referees going on it's automatic. Sarong you got it wrong. It is not an automatic red card. Certainly not as far as uefa are concerned and uefa competition when he did get sent off is arguably not a yellow arguably again i think but he certainly gave referee enough opportunities to send him very mark. Oh yeah the instance in the in the first half on parades ratuwa. It could have been could have been the the second yellow card quite easily. So all wasn't a yellow harare. He had earned the right to be sent off by that point but i was amazed when he came out at the start of the second half even social part. The can you imagine your club marino guardia themselves to be compromised by play. That was so clearly walking into a red card because some people are pointing out. Well you know. By the time he was sent off through the game go well. No because if you had eleven men for the last twenty minutes you might have got the equalize that the next round but you don many to psd's the talking quality. You got no chance costing the game and you know that could cost you know. We'll say socially job. Because i think that the united bought have a long term view that could cause them champions league place in that he can see roper league and all the problems that brings just just because he didn't say friend of all right. I'm gonna ask the two of you. Captain obvious general hindsight here. It's halftime jewels. It's one one if he does take fred off. Some people would say all right. Bring on matt pitch to experience defensive midfielder even cover much ground. But whatever or i would've won one. Why don't you have some place to put somebody in there. Who can pass can keep the ball a little bit your friend paul or if you don't like him because deep down he can't really be trusted. What about on the big donny. Van de beek daredevil donny. And i and i get back to the from the beginning as well. It's one one half you are through. You are qualified. Then yeah you already qualified so even if you bring on madij and you have a very defensive of matiba terminate. It doesn't matter. Yeah but you know. Like neymar cheats within fall in the box. You give up a dot com. And that's why. That's why i think the management of social in that game from from from each choices before the game then during the game. And why did you can leave fred at least if you leave it on the page. Just make sure that he gets it. I understand that the next fire is is off is we all knew it and and i think who is by far one of the most intelligent is we've all come across new as well and as soon as you saw the ball and fred coming in ever knew that it was going to get a second yellow. Gotta check this out there. Because as you know i'm a longtime to hilly sta i kind of feel he is the cat with nine lives although he looks more like an insect. Think but i'm struck by the fact that at one one and you've got out there playing center forward Moist ken one of three italians. Mitch which might explain why they won and okay. So he may. He makes a double substitution. And one was like for like in midfield was that was herrera for right who had crumbs. Okay the other the other one is you take off moist in a game that you're chasing to win and you bring in the chill backer. Who is he's a defender wing. Call them whatever you want. But he's basically what he is right. He's a dutch guy. Just runs up a non flying. That's counter intuitive. Brilliant but we said in the in the reverse fixture in paris sorta won the tactical battle with to hold. They were really good. If you remember the game you explain what that did is. They moved to look to me on television anyway. Like they move to a back me for ten seconds someone in the first game i get him associate brings about on a one one place on the page go in russia's the second goal in this time he was clearly to see for us in the stadium so maybe more on. Tv in midfield had to do something because peres was running off. Steam hot crimes was winning off steam. As well and i think moving from four three that the heart to a buck five because it was a pure black five jello move from the left back to left center back and then you had companion makino's and then forensic on one side and then on the other sides and i think god gave you a bit more control in what you wanted to do. Be more security. And i think that was spot on the at the right time. Becker scored not long after on. And and i think that was perfect. I think in that game to hold one these tactical battle with source. Kim now are implicitly. I think the tacoma certain parts for alternate this was a defeat of making the finishing was terrible moscow. Absolutely golden chances at one month if he's one of those two different guys. Yeah i think we can put storm. What's called it ultimately if united don't need to do. The champions league think clearly on the sidelines think clearly. We have a chance to go through last night. And that's what it boils down to the the shortcomings unto marshall an associate the high slow so i was hoping that we could celebrate to hold a little bit. Take off a striker for defender and augie. Just turns it into another merciless attack on seoul. Marcial your favorite whipping boys but you know what to who was really good as well. Is this the pressure was huge on him. I think he knew that. He if the might not qualify. Let's remind people to sound like domestically they have a twenty point lead in tom. they're all creeping in. There's like six teams within what two points and it's tough for them. They haven't been playing well. They haven't been playing a team and when i saw him yesterday tuesday before the game. He said we said we. We had a big meeting with the players where we were quite tough posted. We are to tell the truth to each other. It was just not good enough collectively as as a team with the team. Spirit unity and i think is quite rigid. And he's quite strict even yesterday he'd worn should have seen his face like come on coach. You we're every. German is your i know but it was even more striking yesterday because i usually don't interview him straight after games like i did yesterday but i think he had him but the way he just took that team and say listen. We have to change something. We have to show more of unity in off otherwise it won't be enough and on the day. My lose that game for sony the way they play the character and the personality to showed was was excellent gills. But one thing is we talk about. Winning the butler. Maybe he was very small halftime. The moment that fred came out in the second half to could have known the assume point. He's off and used to buy time and wait for the right moment and then he could make a fool of social by making the right changes smart coach of known. The fed was a liability on the part. Mr i'm still stuck on the factor to off a striker instead on defending when you're chasing the game but i take my hat off to I wanna talk about imbaba. Because obviously i think we're agreeing. We're in agreement. Those are the two biggest stars on the pitch at the start of the we talk about superstars come through when it matters. I want to start with name. I'm because for all the criticism that he's had his career. I don't think that there's that many really big games they he is completely with and been batting and i think last night not just the goals i thought he was a difference maker baba also played reasonably. Well no wasn't as dominant as you could have been augie. How did you see name. I in particular. I thought name louis tour two goals in three one win so is a strike. That's pretty much what you want them to strike. I think he wasn't outstanding. I think there were times. When he lost his head about the a almost got robust couple times he got himself into trouble. Shoot off when he was very angry about that. Remember the end of the first half mc tomiko. Yeah i think that was an and maybe. I don't think it was malicious but may be. He was being being cute double. I think name off should movement. If i played well i don't think he was was. He certainly played a big pine. Psg getting the winless connect can can we give you do. We feel charitable towards social for a second yet. Because you thought the mattamy should have been sent offering have to say from where i was. I could not see it. I could not see the scene the replacing you think he could have been sent off. Thanks cause i saw that but he has no yet. O'connor toward in the whole game was unreal. Well and i'm wondering should we give socialist benefit of the doubt here where he says you know. You can always say with hindsight while. We should've taken front off at halftime. But if just before that he sees mc tommy getting into it with neymar i think mattamy could have been book. There could have been maybe even get got off. I don't know the referee getting in his head. I can't afford to take fred off because mattamy could get off as well and then a possibility or am i giving social into yard and giving way too much credit. Here yes axa. Don't what the new the new name would come back from october. First thing he does in the second half literally strapped to kickoff against the ball and go straight to mcdermott and say look. I'm going to do here. And i think that was the that was the narrow. That was the thread of the older second. Half name argus. Mukta me. And i think i like the fight. Neymar didn't stop. He always tried. he's not fit. He's not fair he has he at played and then he got injured and cam by the covid. There was everything so he's clearly not fit and yet in the ten minutes of the game last ten minutes of the game. He makes to run sixty yards. The one where. I'm by paying macy's shoots wide and could of course the name and the second one the one he scores and i think he's just and whether you think maybe could have been better not perfect. It was very it was very good in the way. Could hold the bowler taken. People and certainly was very vocal on the pitch. Which was i think. He should've inrush leadership. And you know when he's happy because he goes does the interviews to after the game for that america's and espn argentina and none of that's what he said that he wants to play with with messy again and let's try to do this as as early as next season. None of that. We happen neymar or bring bring barriers. I've been very happy to you. Know there's no problem. But but he was he was happy. And like you said you didn't come to. Pg to play europa league and again it's no offense to team that will be going from championship to european league. But i think the new realized how bad that game was and nothing name are saying. You know. i didn't come here to be knocked out to go to the european showdown. That was certainly the message that we didn't come to traffic to get beats and and go to your beliefs. The other game in this was absolutely wild. But the upshot is we go into match. They six with leipzig taking on manchester united. And your mind. Playing bassac shahir and leipzig united. And your mind yet to qualify one of those three teams going home. Who's going home choice. Prediction time i think united will be limited. No point in leipzig empire and go through Augie united so unpredictable spectacularly so decision. It's so hard to work here. But i think that. Because they got the munchies. Saddam be the following week and i think probably slip up in life. She picked because the selection issue which will backfire. And they'll go out okay so then let's role play project through a toss up but i also think price is your man i. I would be cautious about them saying. Oh look hard work done now. We're playing having watched the magnificent hat-trick don't stop. I wouldn't take for granted. I know all right. So let's role play here since that's what people love doing project forward if it does go badly if they do get knocked out an didn't get stuffed in manchester darby that the weekend against pat all of a sudden do the knives comeback out for socia- augie from external of view. Yes i mean the knives. Never really go away. But i think certainly there's no sense in the. The glaciers are edward are looking to change. I think yes. We know that party scenes available. Yes there's all sorts of rumors linking madrid. And because don's under pressure. But i don't think it really matters. I think the arctic that social safe for a while yet. Because that's just the way the the united border thinking from the spots from the he's doing it. Would it be fair to say that he would need to be like. We are on the table or maybe even lower for socialize job to legitimately be under threat. At least a season a i think back to the united always show if miss on the jumping league and there were a long way adrift than than that puts the managing depression. So yeah if you could get in. The champions league financial big hit ishita volumes because the kobe thing bull. I still think of time. Before he didn't not position. I would tend to agree with. I think that is very much very much. Their outlook given pal two points teams at the very bottom of the table. Have you know the reality is. There's no chance of ever really being endangered species act augie. Thanks so much right. Jaw turn our attention. To enter with group is very finely poised at the Essentially burst you mentioned glop. Birch imaging glauca who lost to inter. They play row madrid. And just about anybody in this group conceal qualified Injured need to be. Shocked are and hope that the madrid russia dortmund but bush game doesn't end in a draw but obviously if gladbach beat row madrid then madrid out whatever conflicts but. I want to focus on this game because antonio when he came in he said you know ink that have this long standing nickname but saying that crazy. Inter of fun right even club anthem. They're all club. Anthem is actually called. The the the the chorus is actually on ipod saying diamond. Which means love her. Love that crazy. Intead kinda reveled in this and this will end no more craziness. We're going to be solid right. Yeah i don't begrudge going to this one minute they are still as crazy as inconsistent on his demented is any team out there witness the globe walking. It's just they have this ability of even when controlled should have sent. Somebody do something that we put the other team back into the game. And i think contain an union better tonight lows in like every other manager but that must drive him crazy. Because that's not that's not. He's if someone swish switched off and let the other team come back into the game. It's dna. i think just black and blue color somehow like seeping through shirt into the players nervous system. i. I don't know what it is like. I try to at performance more than results and this was a good performance but it was it was dominant. They created more chances than gladbach Could've finished better. And then you see. Mrs like ashley. Young's mrs missing. You think what's going on here and defensively as well because you know you would expect them to. Maybe defend a better sony on the goes. They concede the chances that the let glad by heart bert. You're right. i practically some of the vacation when they had the ball. When praise with luke kuhn burrell sometimes pushing up a little bit more other. That was brilliant. There was so much good in their situations where alex is on shares. I think it was an off good things and yet you still feels like this is very fragile. For the first time we saw an intermittent field that actually worked dominated. Maybe it's not the first time it's happened in they're going to surely this season guy yadda dini and the bras. Who would just come back. I thought they were absolutely phenomenal. And they played off the park near the reason that they want because obviously there were mrs defensive slip ups at the other end but they did. They did their job. I mean is this something that they can build around and if so that means no more of a doubt. That was my question for you. There's no way he can come back into midfield. This right after almost elimination in the game and domestic dog go through. But let's see but you can't come back into again after that so well after the mistake that he made and i don't care about the expenses but you play against pitcher in the league but you let the big the big games to midfield and i think the instinct is going to be. Oh but that's the trust by leila's right and you know the bras complaints but you can look at got oil. Do you need a great game. But all i. I'm going to need a tour in in the beginning. Because he's got personally. I've been there done. I guarantee you. this is going to be staff. I wanna happier thought. Just think about lukaku. Who on mazing is he better has made him a better player. Hundred percent hundred percent. I think the the partnership tara our works so well. I think the fact that they're going leaner and fitter when he arrived and the clearly find that he weirds digestion thing with stomach wherever he looked so strong suh quick. He saw someone who needs to be loved anyway. Who needs confidence that faith to repay you and i think this is perfect. I mean like. I said us phone page on this morning on thursday morning when he as a hurricane saying something just on another level i think and certainly right up there with the best in the world right now. I what they're saying with the whole thing. I think the difference is that the hulk loses control. Yeah kaku is so smart. Yeah he is one of the most intelligent strikers of among that type of center forward the target center forward That's in the game today. I think he's absolutely flourished. I'll tell you. What does he run for mayor of milan right now and he would probably win. Even the real scenario would vote firm unless he runs against lot and of course. We're both big fans of lothar martinez of who's very very talented. But are you'll be worried by his lack of efficiency because he could easily school one or two against glad bar and there's a few give down where we were staying and stood. The final product is not there where he's there for the chances but just can't finish clinical enough so i struggled with this because here influenced by the analytics folk and they talk about the fact that people don't have that many chances and except for certain specific situations. It's just lack and randomness and other than very very few people who are outstanding and regularly outperform Like expected goals or whatever. There's no such thing as good finishers. Finishing is is finishing. it's based on the quality of chance as long as he's getting himself those chances but more broadly. I don't know that he's a goal scorer. I don't know that he's a center forward. He's not he's not sergio guero. You'll never be surgery where i know. I think he's more of a second striker type so why he's not goes. No no or goal but yeah not concerned my intermixing of course trying it starts shortly good now good enough just to be very good strike partner of lukaku. We're making lukaku better. That's really good. But surely if you've got a couple of chances in a game l- of this caliber you have to take this one of them. Yes and i can't explain it but look of of all of interest problems. The only issue without data who i think is his contract which hopefully they can sort out one way or another hopefully without overpaying. Because you don't mean. I'm person who looks at the numbers and yet you let you. Don't wanna be can bring up album again. But i want to look at it and say i want to pay a reasonable amount for what i think you're going to produce to preserve your value and that's that i'm more concerned by the fact that i don't wanna have to go to actually young actually on. I'll be honest. So i ask you if you're watching. I didn't like him when he played for aston villa. I didn't like him when he played for manchester you. I never liked him. But i didn't like him. I know him. I didn't like him as a player when he moved to inter on. Mary goes like you know like he's playing fantasy football with primarily stars. Because if you notice he's a real fetish right moses. Yeah but he's been. He's been a tremendous team. He's been a tremendous guy he's played well mostly and whatever and so. I tip my hat to him because he by all accounts. I spoke people. No absolute gentleman absolute class act even talks with his hands like he's become very tire that way. But that's what is it in the last three games. It feels like yeah. True colossal blunders. Obviously the penalty that he gives way way didn't see the guy the guy coming. I didn't last night when he can't turn his body into the right direction. I don't know. I hope it gets away from this idea. That is like this italian illness where we assume that simply because players are older. They're not going to make mental errors and they will always be prepared right. The dow should teach you that actually young should you that i hope we get more. Obviously you've got a lot of credit. Last night. he dropped ashraf academy you know he went on not worked out. Well done right player right situation. But it doesn't mean that that we played better. Because he's older and he's got more experienced look was manchester. United of kenya was small clubs like real madrid. Buscher dortmund if you really wanna go there. And i think that's what what does intervene has to get through to grow. I go back to what i said. Also about the back three. I don't know if i say this after a win win because you know they be gladbach. And then i think they should have had more points at this stage right. They beat club because going to is a good manager. Very good manager very good at executing the system that he has but it doesn't mean that there isn't a better system out there and this is somebody's before. I think the only way that this teams really going to grow but might come. Maybe feels like this is the second season. This is where you make sure that this system is almost perfect. Allison only the understand it and then maybe you can move on to a four three three to a hybrid by three for example. When you don't have to board you go back four and when you have the ball you push and it's only three of the back something like that you know. Maybe maybe back tell you. What if they don't qualify next week. Then we'll go back to contain europe. Continue champions league all those failures or the chance that he missed all those opportunities that you should have done better. And he didn't say this right now for the good of the ended. If they don't qualify next week than i i hope they finish fourth and don't do the league because you saw what happened last season. They got all the way to the europa league. Final right and i mean it's not missing states. The reason they didn't win challenging. For sure i want to have time to work on the training pitch because that is where he does his best work. It's not a coincidence that he was so impressive at chelsea for example in the year that they were out of europe. Anyone any wins league. That is what he needs. And yeah a europa league campaign i think given what the twenty twenty twenty one season is like would be hugely damaging to it but time will tell but if they go out at this age i don't know he he needs to win city out or come very very close this season i think to retain the fate of supporters right enough about some quick hits and said let's go ramadorai to are in the screws turn further un's innings dan jewels just could be the first time they failed to reach the knockout round of the champions since the competition moved to its current firm it in early nineteen ninety s. Yeah think next week. The outs disobedient for disease. What it would be a shame. But what an incredible ten ten days to come via the weekend then overseas incredible final game against gladbach in the champions league and then the merger dobbin associated. I think you might not even be on the bench volatility. And if he still. Is you wind up in the severe. I wrote a column about this. It's up on the website. I think. I don't think he's getting sack. Unless something cataclysmic. He loses all three games or something which hospital. i think. It's more likely that he walked away. Because i tell you what buzz zoo. Unlike most of these other managers he does not have this burning need to go on. Your manager does not define himself as a manager quaffing cal steps in for allison and liverpool as they beat. I asked to clinch first place in group gap. How big is this another kid from the academy doing what he did very well. It's big for him. Sorry for your buddy adriana there obviously you want alison to be. I think it's big for liverpool. Because the conference they found with all these guys were able to step up. Still have all these injuries. Right curtis jones. I don't know how you're getting him out of the starting lineup if he keeps playing like the bomb so it is pretty huge. Can rest later. big big step forward for your closet now sticking with a group. It's a straight final. Between not that i x next week. Who yup we still hope. Hotlanta could do was always very disappointing in the game against michigan. And what they do much better dominated just couldn't finish yet. Come on come the fm permitting of announced new rules for signing foreign players managers and club stuff post brexit gob. What did you make of all of this. Especially for young players is quite significant. Change well the the deal with can no longer signed under eighteen some abroad. that's a fee for rule. So i moved beyond that. I don't know how hugely significant it is. Obviously there have this point system Which is based on appearances and the club you're coming from and whatever else but there's also an appeals body and as we saw in the past the appeals body as often just rubber-stamped everybody is through just a fun quirky to say that oh but we're going to social you know he wouldn't have wouldn't have gotten his work permit now united would've appealed and i tell you what would have happened would have appealed than what it said. You know what glazer's would've said rightly our money. I thought my money my club. I can appoint you know this muppet over here. If i want to oregon appoint so shot you know i. I don't think it's fair for people change. I don't think it's going to. It's a loss that anybody right. This is a tremendous generation of young english talent. That's been produced. And guess what it's been produced at a time when they've had so many foreign coaches and so many foreign players in so many foreign sport scientists and whatever because they're able to track the best in the world regardless of nationality is what made them good. So i think this is a lot of posturing personally. Lots in berman battlefield. One one draws erling haaland misses out through injury Jewels was this the result. I think so. Gabay was very open game really good. The two goalkeepers were pretty good of chances. An indian i. I don't think anyone does it to win. More than the other. So goofy mobility school so there was a good first half from bush house when the penalty was a bit foggy by they get enough enough so speaking of holland. We won't see him and twenty twenty one now with these injury will miss the last champions league much as they already through overseas. Four in this league a game. That's a big deal for dohrmann right. I think it is because when he's been out when he's gone with the yards are false nine hybrid. Whatever it hasn't really worked out. And are you really going to chuck coco in sixteen years and a couple of weeks of it. Be awesome porto draw with manchester city and get the point. They need to qualify around sixteen. But i there's no love lost between them and sitting surgical sound pick where that was. The best thing about the whole game is what happened after pep saying i didn't like the way they played super defensive line. Social conscious really said that. I would be crossed if i was him and didn't win. Anything mean the champions league with all the money the place that he has so pretty crude also a lot of back and forth to portas official club newsletter spice cookies. As his first you've ago as they beat care to qualify oh and ronaldo's caused by the way seven hundred and fiftieth career goal. Which is pretty incredible. Does that wipe out all the doubts on that we can have. I know have doubts. I think he needs to go and play. No i don't think it says much about under the pillow. But i think it's important for case to get off the mark because he's been up and down and he's very talented and he's and he's a young kid and maybe some tranquility peel. Of course there were stories coming out earlier in the week which really kind of had a go at him. You know some anonymous dressing room choices. You don't explain the tactics. He gets his assistance to do it. Well you know what. Maybe he doesn't like to talk maybes assistance or best place to explain the town. I got no problem with that logic. Four three victory over of bisexual here was an absolute wild one jaws. Can you help me celebrate. Both ear. Fund shined cavicchi. And i apologize. I mispronounce that his stunning patrick. Or the fact that the only living short lost in captivity notched injury-time winner both both with a solid who missed a penalty in the bundesliga. The weekend called. finally i one for live. Zeke's maybe psychologically there'd be a big boost for him and cavity the freaky especially at that time. We thought we were gonna get them. Appoint was fantastic. So good on them. Mabo revision 'cause foregoes. A chessy wind formula where severe gap shortly is going to play more now so yeah love maybe the different club in january. But he should look. I've said this chelsea are better. When they're have a forward center forward name tammy or live yet. everybody. I'm ready for for for verner. I it makes a lot of sense but you know hey lamps and you touch me because when it's even more perfect because he's got a penalty would have been even better if he'd scored a free kick. You know messy is rested for barcelona pound charles. And your boy andrew grease mun scores nifty backheel flick. Lovely lovely that. We're spending bill really good as well as the penalty than than the am band upside. Dando come on come on. who's better. Yeah madrid held by buying beatty. One gabby these two point drop for for a for a journal. And the to jesse march and predictable sizable team for the game. The might not go through even. Yeah not out of the woods by any stretch. I was really disappointed. Because when when byron shopping is a couple of dudes that you've never heard of and the starting eleven you know. That's that's not good. You don't believe in you know they need arrest. But i think this was really a missed opportunity stuff. Alert you guys. You just stop playing and you know again. I suspect show unpredictable you. This is not what you want to be. You don't want to be messing with that. Meagher says arsenal. We'll have to sell before they can buy this january jewels. Are you surprised. No no one should be anyway like if our funds the club could go out and buy and so was. Live without selling this crazy hooting. Excel dust the question. Different subject and debates. Let's help me do right. Green mathilde doozy. I think maybe someone like chambres. Maybe maverick by chamber. I dunno someone in england somewhere they might be. You know you're gonna lose those and he's wage is he's gonna leave at the in for free so at least you still have the friday january but that freeze a bit of of cash. Maybe might leave. In general. the known. Like there's so. Many maybe flagged up that may be spending all that money on players series was enormous contra the reporting that we could see the champions league former change and something called line. The swiss model gab was swedish. No lights call this something like chocolate. Which is so this is the idea. So right now you have thirty. Two teams men. They're splitting acres of four and they play everybody home and away and the top two advance to the round of sixteen under this model. I think it's almost certain you're gonna have thirty six teams. They're adding four I don't know if it's official yet. But i think it's very likely and those teams are going to be divided into four pots as they are now and each team is going to play ten games on the split between those four bought. They won't play against teams from From their same country as is the case. Now there's just by ten games five home five away. It's going to be random within those pots. And then they're gonna make one big league table with all thirty six teams and then the eight teams at the top are going to qualify for the round of sixteen and the next sixteen teams are going to play 'home-and-away minimum pay next year round to effectively qualify for the round of sixteen select playoffs kind of thing to qualify essentially. Yeah that's the idea. Apparently a creates more interest. I conceptualize why this is the case. Because you'll be more open and you know maybe we'll be more uncertainty. Maybe i don't know. But i don't know the whole thing i can tell you what can you do. You see another those ideas might. This was first reported. My my friend and former colleague martin ziegler in the time to is generally very good on these things so this is something that still has to be approved but people like it and it strikes them as a good compromise because you get more games. Which is what they want. You get possibly more interesting format Around to to fight off the whole superleague idea because this is closer to superleague would like right. We'll look like a on paper it is. I mean. I still think you know. I don't this. Four extra games is going to be problematic. And they're going to be more more fights to define such as they want weekend dates. Obviously right now have one weekend day. They hope that they can get at least three international match counters change in two thousand twenty four this looming in in the background. As wow they're gonna have to sort that out Probably in the next twelve months so yeah stay tuned and maybe we'll all become familiar. The swiss one day ends will be returning to some primarily ground this weekend but not others. It's all down to regional authorities and what tier your in Tool does this mean some will have an unfair advantage. Since apparently only ten of the twenty premier league sides will be able to have fans back in the room. It depends your team or your your cities in tier two or three in two thousand one. I think it would have been great if it was funds for everyone for no one. I'm not sure proper disadvantaged really two thousand fans in the six thousand strings as you would want funds then. It's just like you're going to keep the fake noise now. Really increasingly dislike. I said i need more trials with concussions situations before they can actually changed law gab. Come on short. Don't need like shortly. They could do now. So the reason you have a trial and attest and the normally do it at under seventeen level or whatever is so that you can can like anything right. It's an experiment you know. We're gonna see how it works are there. Are there any pitfalls anything happening envisioned blah blah blah. They tested tested things. But the problem is it makes sense to have a cast. If you're doing things happen regularly right but head injuries. Fortunately are extremely serious potentially but they're also extremely rare so i don't know what the hell you're testing because you go. You can do an entire season of testing and this might only crop up two or three times. So you're not gonna learn anything from that And meanwhile people risk now do it now do it and also did talking like the temporary substitution. They're thinking about. Oh let's add another. Let's let's let's have it but have it be a permanent substitution but if it's a permanent substitution that rule already exists right. So what good does that do. Anybody surely has to be a temporary substitution fifty. Make sense i. I don't know. I backed you so many times in the past. Don't let me down. Please us draws you. And i love you know message tribute to mando last weekend spanish football authorities. Not so much as just a disgrace gab. Shame on the punish. The spanish league wherever i know the rules. If you take you should off you get yellow cover. He did it because jay died as a tribute wide. You call them to stop to start with then. Does that stand and now you find him. You can actually find the guy finally. Oh macy for taking of an show. The old boys and the one will before this is crazy. You imagine if you cumulus more yellows and could get suspended for them. Turn classic or something by the way shot up to boca junior john. Carlos tavares doing the same thing. I have a feeling that he's he's not gonna get in trouble for not yet stephanie. Papa became the first woman to officiate in a trump ezek man's game. She did the women's game when she took charge of ventas. Against how significant do you think is gonna look. It's another barrier broken. Of course you'd ever deficient super cop. She's she's been irregularly leon for several years now hopefully it'll inspire more women to go in pursuit us although person i think regardless of gender if your dream is being a referee but that can be your dream after you give up your coming professional football otherwise to meet. We will run into an issue because we all want to have the best referees out there for the men's game regardless of gender for the women's game so far the conversation has been a bit different. It's been the push pushes been well. Let's have the best. Women referee to give them path pathways. They're gonna have to start this out. You don't want the women's game to be just a stepping stone into the men's game as far as officials are concerned but hopefully you know that that's a good problem to have down the road by the way out gama who is the now the vice president of the italian players union. Another woman in a position of leadership in traditionally men's game right. We've got time for this week's show. We come back monday do this again. That's a good idea. After the northern gang give a shout to my friend vernon who is true l. trough a big fan of the show. We were together on wednesday. So i said to hard foreign. You've got away with it all right so then Love the game. Love your neighbor and love yourself.
