"Park, as much as he can have an impact in games, he just doesn't have that standout presence to command the attention that midfielders of a club like Chelsea inevitably do and have to have. And that step down to another club, a smaller club, Craig mansions, my former club West Ham, which I think would be a great fit for him. Might be exactly what he needs if he is to be playing if he wants to start and start regularly and on the other occasion that he picks up an injury and has a miss for a couple of weeks. He's straight back into the starting lineup. I think that would be a very good fit. And right now, a very good, a very good fit for him, both in terms of where he is as a player. And the type of football that west and please. So that may be one that both Christian and mom put a signature need to think about. Ian, what's the British press say about it? Is the jury's still out on politic or have they decided he's just not good enough for Chelsea? They don't say an awful lot about him to be honest with you, but at times he let's be fair to him. He's been electric when he's had a run in the team. But do you know something? How many games has he started in a row this season for Chelsea? I looked it up tonight. He's only ever started three in a row. This season. So no wonder he can't build up any kind of head of steam. Of course, injuries have been a big issue for him. Look at that FA Cup final the other year. He was the best player on the pitch. He scored for Chelsea, then he got a bad injury which kept him out sort of halfway through the next season as well. So that's the way it's kind of gone for him. And that tweet from his dad, I think, just shows they are frustrated as a family, but I bet Christian was on the phone to his dad and said, look, that's a bit embarrassing. Take it down, dad. Nobody saying he's not good enough for Chelsea. I mean, he's clearly. Well, I think the question is, is he good enough to start at Chelsea and be a consistent starter, Chelsea? Well, you could throw this in Kai harvest and anxiety and Timo Verna who haven't been good enough. You know, fits and starts flashes. It's not just him. It's not just him. There are others as well. I know all those people that say the point want to pontificate about wise and whereabouts and the World Cup and all that. I understand that. But it's not just him. He's not been singled out, but ultimately he's going to have to make a decision set because the likelihood is, well, Chelsea will change ownership. The likelihood is certainly start, the new ownership, whoever it is, will pay off some money in to try and get the fans on the bike. That might certainly win away. But settler is starting to put money and that will mean more no Shane ends up being more pressure to try and get game time more problematic to get game time. Would you leave if you were him? Because I mean, Shaka mentioned. We don't have to leave Chelsea unless you want to start at this point in his career. Doesn't he need to be playing almost. If I was him every week, if I was him or any player in that position, if I couldn't, if I didn't foresee donut tunnel, regular game time, then absolutely, I would be looking to leave. I want to go somewhere where I know I'm. You can even go down to the lakes of arsenal. You know, if you go into enough, even if you go in there, Martinelli, Smith roll, Pepe, who has not been good, saka. You still got to replace it. You've got to get these guys out of the team. It's not easy. And that's a team that I've been way off for a long time. So it's going to have to find this level if it wants to play four 85th regular games a year. And that goes back to the endpoint as well. It's going to have to stay for two. But if it's fair and he wants to play that amount of games and be happy and showcase his talent and maybe prove that when he is playing regular, those goals is assessed as and we see the best of them. I personally think it's going to have to take a step down to a slightly smaller club with less ambition with a smaller squad shows that it gets more game time, whether it's in England or any of these other countries. I don't know. But I think that's a decision he's going to have to make and make it very soon with analysis like that. You know where you'd be a great guest? No,.

"Only to be flung over it again in extra time by Real Madrid after Rudy is slip a Benzema in his wielding of the dagger. Here they face Crystal Palace 18 that relative to Chelsea lack big game experience. That would show, but I will say they played without fear this second half of the season under Patrick Vieira and early doors, no nerve shown in the exchanges. Their fans bast in the occasion. Their team set up to flicker on the counter as Chelsea took their tired tired legs, tried to assert themselves wobbly at first, really a game of resilience and individual clashes and early on kind of mishit slip passes, really a war of attrition in that first half, David. Yeah, definitely. And the other thing about palace is really, I think to some extent palaces season has been built on is their physicality. For years palace felt that they were often abused by more physical sides in the Premier League and under Vieira, that has really changed. Yes, they've got these amazing attacking players. Yes, they play real football, but they've become much more physical. Look at their size across the back line. Just look at how, you know, how combative they are in midfield. And that gave Chelsea problems particularly on that Wembley pitch, cutting up on its second game in two days. And it was very, very even at halftime. Yeah, Chelsea had really created no clear chances in that first half palace lacking on loan from Chelsea's Conor Gallagher, but the eagles were made robust, they charge forward when the opportunity presented, mendy, Doe full length, to smartly parry from coyote. And into that second half, Chelsea did start to drive palace's center back backwards, Chelsea had so much of the ball. I know they didn't create much that was clear cut. You know, it looked exhausting for palace to keep playing football like that. So organized so focus, it just mentally sapping. And the moment they let their guard down Chelsea pounced in transition, they were right, I should say through the area of the field Connor Gallagher will most probably have been charging around like a manic lab video let off its lead if you've been allowed to play. Yeah, well, having said that, I think my sort of bands with my palace supporting Friends was that if everybody wanted kind of Gallagher to play so badly, they should have let him suit up for Chelsea. So yeah, you're right, it was a, it was a they gave it up. Chelsea didn't so much create as they just hit them with the gagan press and it was a turnover in the offensive third. We know how much that turns to colon, Mitchell, gave it up, Mason Mount, who just seemed invigorated in the final third of this game. And ended up the ball broke, you know, somewhat innocuously to Ruben Loftus cheek on the edge of the area. No one screams shoot at Ruben Loftus cheek, particularly when the ball falls on his foot, but he just smashed it, rod. Took a fortunate deflection and into the back of the net. The chin, it should be said, he spent a season on loan at Crystal Palace, and he went thermonuclear on that ball. His first goal in three long years for Chelsea football club and from that point on palace kind of had to change their game plan. He had to come at Chelsea when they could, Elise was flung on, created space at the back, the constant live wire Timo Werner Mason Mount kept trying to create space for themselves. And when they did say, I mean, Mason Mount could kind of tap tap tap at the end, David. Yeah, and we should say that just at the end of this season, Chelsea are finding some chemistry with this front three of Kai, Mason Mount and Timo Timo played an excellent pass. I've only watched it about a 125 times. And from a non offside position, even if there was a shot, even more even more impressively, whatever it was, I'll take it T mobile is contributing Mason Mount with a great first touch and he knocks it in. He can't stop scoring right now. Four goals in three games for mason and I say this, I've got a lot of time for two goals for Chelsea from English talents that they develop themselves at cobham and suddenly Crystal Palace were in number. And we got to know quickly that Cristiano pulisic was an on this day and I did feel for him. You know, this affects players a big Wembley day out in players are hyper competitive, not being the first team always pisses him off but not being on the field at all. Not being one of the 5 subs will have hurt a hyper competitive player. The players know that the manager sends signals to the group and Chelsea, yes, they're an erratic squad of stocks rising and falling. You can look at Timo Verna three weeks ago, he was lulls in his now a fan cult hero big time, but David kind of feels like politic has to prove himself over and over and over again. It's almost like he's got to do it once more. Yeah, that's though a very American lens as we're used to following with Christian. I mean, look at this from the point of view of Ruben Loftus cheek, this is a player who's not been involved in squads almost didn't make the roster this year and has found his way back in through performances and to a great extent though I do think that this was about certainly for Ruben, this was about his performance in Champions League earned him this right to come to come and play in this game. He came off the bench after curvature was injured early in the first half. It is just possible that this was not a signal being sent to Christian that it was just we're resting him still got a lot of big games to come in the league. We still have an FA Cup final. I don't think this season is over for Christian at Chelsea by any means. But look, the performances recently, we would be fooling ourselves if we said that his performances recently for club have not been on the level that they were certainly in the last couple of international breaks for his country. God bless palace Anderson conspired to miss a click at chance miss Tommy's leap when he was a marked back post and Chelsea held on to make. This is incredible. Their third successive final, their 5th in 6 years, just an incredible record. They will face Liverpool, a sequel to the carabao cup two that the world didn't know we needed. First time that the same two teams have met in the domestic cup since arsenal beat Sheffield Wednesday in both finals back in 1993. And so ya Chelsea Dave, I've still one more trophy to play for in the Roman Abramovich era, the final may 14th and most impressively of all, Chelsea qualified for the men's and women's FA Cup finals on the very same day, ya club Devo, even in the most turbulent chaos. They still find a way to thrive. Yeah, although having said that, the under threat 23 side, I think of facing relegation for the Premier League. But yes, this amazing women's team under Emma Hayes as well. The club is still looking good. This is why so many American billionaires are all trying to buy this club because they have under Abramovich, it wasn't only bringing it, bringing in the huge players with huge money, but it was the investment in the facility in the women's side in squads in a playing mentality that runs all the way up through all of the youth teams all the way through..

"Between them this season and we will show you that a little later. But first let's look back on what we did see in this game FA Cup semifinal between Chelsea and Crystal Palace. This was a chance for palace in the first half, probably the best chance of it. Yeah, that wasn't a lot to talk about at halftime. You may have noticed if you were watching. But this is a good technique from curti here who keeps it down really well, Mindy makes a good save, save Anderson's offsides with a flag goes up. And then a nice piece of play from Timo Verna here, a lovely town. He has looking not quite like he's all self, but certainly more like it. And there's no need for hardware to go down. Rob will say that in commentary, it's a clear dive, it's cheating. Anthony Taylor, you can see his possession there gets absolutely spot on and Kai Havertz is yellow carded for his theatrics. And so nil Miller was, after the first half of action, into the second half we go, coyote narrowly missing ahead of here. Yeah, mainly doesn't make a great move for it. I don't know if he was just a little bit flat footed. He's backtracking karate, so it doesn't get us off his shoulder as well, I think. Yeah, maybe Mandy just knows it's going wide. But just to remember as well that it was Ruben Loftus cheek who came on for COVID since you've got injured in the first half Chelsea winning back the ball here and it would lead to the opening goal and it was through that man. I'd love to speak. That's a good skill, good technique, but metro has been excellent for paulus and gets caught in the ball. Actually, the pressure comes from as pola cueto, who really doesn't give him any time on the ball just here, snapping around, but wins it back. That puts palace under pressure. Nace dropping the shoulder from Kai harvest,.

"This pales into insignificance to me from what the effect of this could be in hopefully, hopefully bringing about the end of this terrible invasion and this awful suffering that is going on in Ukraine. So I think for me to have any other feeling other than thinking about the people in Ukraine at this point, it just seems so out of place. I can't even process. I could care less whether Chelsea beat or lost to Luton. I could really care less at this point whether we won or lost the carabao cup. I could really care less about who is our owner moving forward. I'm really much more focused on the sort of the very precarious situation awful for people Ukraine in the very precarious situation we find ourselves in a geopolitical situation with an insane Russian leader who has nuclear weapons. So sorry, sorry to give you that answer, but that's really my football. That's my football answer. Okay, I think everybody, everyone same would say the same and a posted a couple of times, this whole moment with Chelsea, a humble and by the way of Everton, who rather than Chelsea would probably the most exposed Premier League club to Russian oligarch ownership after or at least Russian oligarch money announced this morning that they have suspended sponsorship agreements with three companies linked to Uzbek billionaire and friend of Putin. Who were sanctioned by the EU over the past couple of days, Everton sponsorship. This is kind of incredible. The income, the most recent accounts we know of for 2019 20. And Everton brought in $85 million in sponsorship and at least half of that came from usmanov. So his removal as a benevolent sponsor from Everton football club will be seismic. We still don't fully understand how or what or what the impact will be of a club. Remember, there's trying to finance its own move into a new stadium delicious had some day as we begin to pod news filtered out that the Germans have seized Alicia usmanov's $800 million yacht 8 $100 million bought himself 8 Jack Grealish with that. But in terms of your approach to all of this, I keep quoting I've tweeted it, put it on our Instagram, there's a line from just an apple bound route, a couple of books last year that really blew me away about the twilight of democracy and she constantly write incredible analyses in the Atlantic and she wrote, I think it was her opening line in last night's essay, she wrote history has accelerated the impossible has become possible. Shifts that no one imagined two weeks ago are unfolding with incredible speed, and that is true in Europe, it's true in Ukraine, it's true in football, it's just a reflection of all of that in good times and in dark times in this case in very dark times and we will follow when we will analyze and we will create space for all of these conversations to happen. I'm sure it's going to dominate the questions Dave, who should quickly dive in for what it's worth to the midweek football roundup. Yeah, absolutely. Look staying on Chelsea. They did play some actual football today. You can call it that. They survived the scare from the championships Luton town in the FA Cup, the child had to come from behind twice to beat the hatters, Chelsea goals from Sal, Timo Werner and in a shock, big rom. Assisted by Timo Werner. Yay. You crane, Ukraine, you crane chance of the Luton town flags. The Luton town fans had corner flags that were yellow and blue and they decided just two minutes actually scored. The term it felt like standards were quickly being set for post Roman era Chelsea, Luke would do in a soul equalized fine team goal by Harry cornick, platoon back in touch, leading a hero Chelsea got to Timo Verna, who, if you watch his goal, the amazing part of it is he didn't even celebrate blessing. I think he just expects them all to be offside now. And then he set up rumbly Kaka, who just looked pissed off when he scored just because we should talk about the other FA Cup action also Devo and then we will dive into your questions. Keep banging them into the chat and we will bring you up to the stage Middlesbrough at the team that Robbie must have built rod stay only went and followed last rounds up set of man united by beating spurs yesterday and highlighting today's games, Liverpool, follow up their carabao cup win with a victory over lowly knowledge, the very special American guest in attendance and it wasn't Josh Sargent's mom and dad. They're not sure he's not Josh sergeant's dad, but can we just say Liverpool tacky tacky Ladd loves a cup goal two of them tonight. Things had 6 goals and one assist in 8 domestic cup games with amino he loves crap games outland and the search for the reds quadruple goes on as does Greg burr hall to search for a Liverpool store books mug Dave. He was in attendance city quite awkwardly. It's the bean there series, the bender series. I love it. King Kimi Douglas hit my Greg the whole time. He must have just kept saying he have a lot of sneakers. Yeah, they sneakers. China's probably king Kenny would have said Southampton dumped out West Ham three one brewer amongst the goals again. Yesterday, Manchester City traveled to peterborough, the bottom of the championship side, no one has the posh, they were at home, they were 50 to one od to win. They played bloody well, left fans sang. Johnston's patron winners, you'll never sing that as a team held firm for an hour, but Maris don't care about your footballing dreams, bully boy, cutting side, create separation, killed him back post 18th goal of the seasonal comps, but the shock of the round Tottenham there wasn't Jack Grealish scoring. It was Tottenham Hotspur in one of the most truly atrocious spurs performances of recent memory against Middlesbrough championship Middlesbrough. By the way, Midler's were much the better side deserve their win in extra time. The spurs back line buckled. I mean, look at the goal. Show me a more bedraggled defensive line with Emerson Royale just lackadaisically playing on 19 year old local ad Josh Cooper. What a stunning strike..

"Said this. Timo Verna oh wow. Wow. Timo Werner wow, okay, so let's think. So you put them alongside an absolutely brutal finisher. Because what he does is he tears holes in the outer layer and then the strike has just come in and deliver, right? And he gives dynamism he gives instant dynamism to a forward line. You could put him somewhere like Atleti weirdly enough because he might tear holes with something like a giraffe Felix. Yeah, they're two stacks, though, if they don't need anyone else up front. Yeah, oh, in terms of in terms of clubs they've got space for some like a team of air. Yeah, yeah, because he's got a fit. He's got to go and play minutes. Yeah. For example, otherwise I could say, oh, Aaron Ramsay should go to fucking man city. But why not? Back to Leipzig. That's a wild shot. I'm only half joking like back to Leipzig. I think that's a wild shout. In conca could do something special there, I think. Really, really good, 'cause firing, but needs a little bit of help, and with the dust go down they've got a bit of a bounce and could go back to Leipzig could be a nice nice package. I'd like to see it. One idea that I had, but I'm not sure if it had worked with the system they played, but I thought severe might be a shower. Because a couple.

"Running around, then performance levels from this team. They've lost their identity. The whole front four no matter who puts in, I'm not playing well. And they fluff around in the middle of the park and around the box, looking for this perfect pass all the time. They need to get balls onto the box. They're just. It's just lost as we're Thomas Tuchel. The only thing it could offer up, it was that they were tired. Now hasten to the other apart from bondly. Almost every game called off recently. Every other team is tired too. That's really no excuse. Stevie, I think what makes it more disappointing from a Chelsea standpoint is you were looking for a bounce back performance after what we saw against Manchester City clearly they didn't get that. Yeah, well, Craig said there were stuff. There's definitely a lack of cohesion. But I'd like to go back to the entire excuse. Are you serious? I mean, Zach hasn't played that much this season. He can hardly be tired. Lukaku has had a spell with his other rest of it, but an injury. But then he didn't play a couple of weeks ago later. So he's not being overplayed. Hudson the toy hasn't been overplayed. Mission mode didn't play last week. And then you bring it on have arts who hasn't played that much. And Timo Verna, who hasn't had that much time either. So where is this tie of this coming from? They had plenty of the ball and got it into the final thought on an off occasions that you're pointing a finger at that lot. Every single one of those I've just said who shouldn't be tired, you're pointing the fingers at them. And that's what you should have been doing instead of throwing all the tired nodes and son. My goodness. You've got a 100 million pound striker who thrives on bowls and in a box, but they don't put a ball in the box. So you look at yourself and figure your team out and mix it up because I'm not suggesting you just start falling in bowls in the bell area, because Brayton, of course, I've got two bikes that are about 6 foot 8 9, but you've got a mixer up and they didn't mix it up and that has to be done in a coach as far as I'm concerned, not being tired. Shaka, you agree this on Tuco? Yes. And I think it goes further than just that by the excuse that he offered. I mean, not just about boys coming into the box. But Yoko has been at his best when he's played in counter attacking teams, right? Where were they talking Everton or Inter Milan? That's when he's at his best. But as you watch this game, I don't think Chelsea could be any slow. I don't think there could be any slower coming out to the back. I don't think they could possibly and he slower coming out of midfield. So by the time they got the ball into the attacking third, everybody, there's 20 players within 25 yards of right in school. I'm just no space for Chelsea to operate in. No real creativity because your genius is how deep is of the midfielders. There's no space for Lukaku once the door to run into. The Zia gorgeous comes out the frustration. I think frustration because he's not been playing. When he has been playing, he's not been playing well, and then in the game today, he was so far away from the attacking theater himself, that he just decided to lash one and somehow would speak to that in the approach because I have a little talk about Sanchez as far as I go. But other than that, looking at a Chelsea team that I supposed to be threatening at the top of the table, that really offering nothing against anybody who has any idea of a game plan themselves. Team selection as well as I know they're missing players, but every team's messing players. Welcome to the fight for top four. So that's really the next question here because you express that you had some concern. Is that concern growing now that they could.

"Chelsea 5 Chesterfield one rodge Timo Werner actually finds the back of the net, although we should say, he took a slightly worrying amount of touches in front of an open goal to do so. Callum Hudson adore added a wonderful curling effort. Lukaku converted from DCL range, christiansen, dinked in a header and Z scored a penalty after pulisic was table topped in the area. Chesterfield found a Lake constellation goal but the ultimate constellation knowing that as the spy rights named after the crooked church steeple in their town center, they are one of the best moniker sides in the whole of England. And oligarch team face up to one owned by the fans via a community trust 92 places below them on the cusp of the football league, no surprise, a stroll in the park, too cool. I actually liked how we made it clear it was just 5th level opposition. He didn't take the plaudits or the victory lap. What was the for you David from a Chelsea perspective? A fine first look at Chelsea's youngest ever FA Cup starter 17 years a 122 days debutant left at the back three Lewis hall. Never played center back before but looks like Alonso and waiting. And perhaps the symbol of the true magic of the FA Cup Dave Timo Werner, not just scoring as he got the Timo Verna hat trick the offside goal and the horrifically blown chance. Could they for him? Yeah, Louis hall definitely the highlight for me watching that very talented left footer plays in multiple positions. I thought he looked fantastic in this game. And just seeing the way that his teammates reacted to him. And just seeing the effort that Chelsea put into it, you know, somewhat proud, you know, I just think the whole Chelsea organization inviting every single team from Chesterfield all the way through the youth ranks down to play them at cobham. It was just really a lot about English football. But now on to what for me was the game of the weekend roger Newcastle nil, Cambridge, one, I'm sure very few people took pleasure from this rod Kieran Trippier Newcastle fell by league ones Cambridge united Newcastle were frustrated by heroic performance my word the highlights from goalkeeper dimitar meet of and in the 56th minute, they run done by half man, half war of 1812 frigate Joe ironside, banging one past the team he supported as a child, one silver lining for Newcastle fans, Alan Sam maximum will be box office entertainment in the championship. So face meat, yet immensely organized Cambridge 41 places below them. Yes, the tune of Val kiran Trippier so nice. Let's be candid for a minute and not sarcastic. It's so nice to see a man of his dream come true to play for Newcastle and sit at home. It shares made of piles of cash, who has a dream to that day. He sparked a lot of the attacks early on in a game which witnessed 26 shots by Newcastle pounding the Cambridge goal Cambridge united hero Bulgarian goalkeeper dimitar meet of 9 saves iron risk forge by the Danube, including one of the death, which was just extraordinary meat of apparently lives with our inside, so there must have been extraordinary scenes around there apartments Saturday night after the 56 minute slop in the Newcastle box, dubravka couldn't claim the ball. It spanned loose and there was a kid born of their Newcastle in middle specula idolizing Alan Shearer and he had to finish Shira would love David. What a spin, what a strike to slap that ball though. Yeah, it was fantastic and the celebration was everything. One day, not good for Saudi how. Not good at all, especially this news emerged, the Newcastle Saudi odor, magpies chairman, yasir, Al rumor Yan. The fact that these Saudi obviously neither here nor there, he's just a massive piff of a loves piths. Loves piths in the face, but he took the unusual step of visiting the team dressing room after a dismal loss at the house as he didn't read the riot act. But what do you think he went there for David? He apparently came over. Rod because he wanted to come over for a game that they were definitely guaranteed to win. And it wasn't going to change. It wasn't going to change his plans to go and speak to the players in the dressing room afterwards. Unbelievable. He probably didn't know they just lost. He's like, yeah, sure, let me meet and greet. You know, I will say when you read about the rivalry, the history of Real Madrid and separatist Barcelona and the Franco Franco used to send this henchmen from the internal services to say hello to the Barcelona players in the locker room before games in that period just to say hello. They didn't actually have to say anything. They just said hello, which was enough for the boss of the players to crap themselves and lose the game. I would say some messages that delivered not in words but just by the mere presence and I would say, yes, I'll run those exactly what he's doing and I think it's probably scary AF. Manchester United one Aston Villa nil a link up between the creative duo united have been crying out for Fred to McDonald in the 8th minute since united sea of Stevie G and advance into the fourth round villa, they were bright throughout rods, they tested the structural integrity of the woodwork twice and had two goals disallowed, but these two will run it back in the league this coming weekend.

"First goal in ten games will come. You could see the relief. Just roll off his shoulders in ways. My God. By the way, my God Christian policy needed that goal. Really, really did. That waste enhanced the technical parts of it were beautiful and you're right. It was underrated. Thank you to every Liverpool fan who took time to tweet me. Calm down calm down. It was just a goal. It wasn't that good, but it was the technical aspect of it and the fat that my God he needed it. We needed them to school and for the rest of the game. He did look like a different player. I'll be honest. He still doesn't look a 100% confident. He really doesn't. But at least for the rest of that game, he wasn't the second guessing himself. He wasn't being knocked over. He wasn't overthinking passes. He wanted the ball the actively. At times, he looks as if he has been trying to avoid getting into the play. He wanted the ball, he wanted to prove himself and again. He looked like a player who believes he belongs and it was humanly. It was really it was a lot of relief and it was a lot of joy for him. Yeah, see, for me, he's a player for whom the Premier League and the defensive duties that, you know, set squarely on his shoulders playing in a wide position under two cool, that he's always thinking about that, and there was a moment in the commentary, I don't know if you remember where, you know, I think it was before the goal where tu cool is admonishing him apparently from the sideline to like get forward and beat a player because he's hesitant because he doesn't know where he's meant to be because you know he gets yelled at constantly by its manager and criticized consuming by his manager for not tracking back and not doing enough defending. So he just seems hesitant, whereas when he plays internationally for the United States, his responsibility is really are going forward. In the Bundesliga he had less defensive responsibilities. It's not that kind of a league and not sign a system that he was playing in at dormant. So I, but you're right, it's that level of certainty and just watching how extraordinarily happy he was. An energized and watching his Chelsea teammates mop him. Yes, I know it was just Saul. But after the goal, it was just so great to see. Just a little tear in my eye. Into the second half an incredible moment of play Sal as sprung forward after a Chelsea cord. A Christian actually balls up the defending, leaving no to break. He decided, you know what I'm gonna shoot early and shot the keeper, but then they sprung full across the goal to Paris and that shot from seller that's safe for men the only mode on the eduard unstoppable object immovable force mendy, so bloody good on this day. Again, I don't think he gets a pretty deserves for superlative play this season. Possibly so chill. He's got this chill charisma. But the saves he makes, the transcendent. I mean, yeah, I mean, watching in this game and just occur to me watching, you know, Manet and mendy and seller. You know, these just tremendous African footballers. The light up, you know, the stars and you know, can't say, of course, who plays for France, but eligible to play for Marley, these four, you know, African players just absolutely magnificent lighting up a Premier League stage and just great to watch. Also, take a hat off to Kelleher who matched mendy with a Paris and politic up close. I was actually shocked and thrilled by the intensity of this game, despite the fiction, despite the injuries, the COVID, the mental fatigue. It was unreal. This was two teams fighting for their dreams of the remnant of a total chase Chelsea in particular. Liverpool by the end were just hanging on. And by the final whistle, taught me too cool had actually sweated to his overcoat day though a simple of the boob team was gone out like Butch Cassidy Anderson dance kid, both guns blazing, another game of the season contender, there for me with city Liverpool back in October and Everton arsenal lulls. For terrific goals, two heavyweight team performances, but only one winner Manchester City ten points clear and a gold difference overload to boot Chelsea. I've now dropped points in 7 of the last 11 games, Liverpool, no wins in four or comps. Who feels best after this two two or I guess who feels less worst. Less west. I don't know, I could argue it both ways. I mean, Liverpool with a game in hand, ten points behind probably have more points per game in the table, probably feel a little bit better, but they'll feel destroyed that they allowed a two nil lead to slip away. You know, that's two draws between the teams this season. That means four points dropped each and a very close title race against man city. So yeah, tough to know. Tough to know who takes more out of it going forward. Maybe Chelsea take a little bit more out of it going forward knowing that they can sort out the Lukaku situation. They showed some real fire. They ping the ball around superbly. So I don't know, but ultimately you're right, cities, titles lose at this point. Chelsea, it's hard to believe, looking at the two at the moment that he's the man who came in and made it all look so easy how to press without leaving yourself open to counters how to beat city. Which he did three times down the stretch last season, how to bloody win the Champions League. Has a lot like a tracksuit guru, suddenly opened at the back, impotent at top. There were litany of expensive forwards Kai, Christian, Timo Verna, ziak, big rom. That is like $560 million worth of talent. None of whom look like they know exactly what to do and how to do it within that system. Chelsea to me, and this is always unfathomable. They're a symbol of how quickly things can bloody spin out of control in today's high pressure football against a backdrop we should say off COVID and predictability just that story from glory to freefall. Christmas Eve 2020 David, a year ago Tuchel was sacked by PSG. Within 5 months, he'd won the Champions League now. Now, can you.

"And attempting to tell the world that was not much wrong with this team, but I've got to say time with Everton and not just Everton, but Everton's bloody care about cup team. Let me just say that dog won't hunt her to haul. And the team's performance took all by name two clips by nature. Why is it been like watching a 5 point lead over city, turning to the 6 point deficit? They're not just the Everton. It was the Burnley performance. It was the man united performance. It was the lead performance, even though they ended up winning that game. The Watford performance, I think they won that one too. I can't remember. I mean, Chelsea, this team that, you know, you know, until, you know, this past weekend were being, you know, possession and offensively dominant, but failing to put the ball in the back of the net and then leaking leaking somewhat soft goals. This was worse than that. This wasn't even a team that looked dangerous in possession. They just looked outplayed in all sectors of the field. And as you say, toothless. And increasingly, two calls, 5, two, three, but it's not even like a 5 two three because there's really nobody playing up front. It's like a 5 5. With no one up front, it's a it's seems to be getting easier and easier for opposing teams to deal with. I mean, we should give Chelsea the caveat of making it clear that the team had asked the Premier League to cancel the game ahead of kick-off because of COVID injuries and the rest and were rejected, show must go on. The good news and goal of county back first appearance since suffering the injury last month, COVID. Out of COVID isolation finally on Friday made the bench one of only four outfield players named a sub spike two whole wolves, they God, I've gotta say into large, more solid than ever boss that you feel in the early exchanges and thank God for Chelsea they're finishing, has been equally already and Chelsea looked like what they are just a team. You could say undermined by COVID, but the problems really predate the new COVID rave, then they cumbersome and ability. And also, you know, Conor Gallagher, Armando broja, Tammy Abraham, all seen as being, you know, Matt masker roger. That was just for you. All seen as being surplus. By the way, climates. I will say if you're the answer, I'm not entirely sure what the question is. But yeah, Billy Gilmore throw him into. But Tuco doesn't really, you know, he's been so focused on the defensive part of the game that he's not really focused on the offense. Yes he bored in Lukaku. He's had sort of injuries and illness and all sorts of things affecting him, Timo Verna still not firing in any way. But meanwhile, as Chelsea fans are watching Tammy Abraham knock them in for fun at Roma, and Amanda brahl had do the same thing at Southampton. And we don't have an academy. We don't have 20 more little babies coming up from the academy right now. So I'm not going to give too cool to pass on what happened in this game. If this had been one off, some new aberration, I might do, but not, this is what been going on for weeks. And he should have known this coming into preseason. Play cumbersome almost lethargic second half. Chelsea did become more compact. Did dominate possession? There was long spells where we'll simply couldn't get on the ball. But little of that translate C two, anything borderline creative, borderline chart Z fli, mount subdued. And we've got to say Christian Pulisic toiling as the false now I might got a really, really feel for him as we enter this holiday. Out of position, grinding away, but looking lightweight, would you say that glaring mess right at the end? Yeah, I mean, he said, what? $85 million signing. I'm not trying to suggest that he was meant to just come in and straight up replace hazard. But, you know, this is the unfortunately we've seen a little bit too much of, and there is has been a political also who's been wondrous for Chelsea in that post lockdown period when he came back. He was superb. And I think all Chelsea fans, all American fans have just hoped that we'd see the same in the team this season starting to get a few opportunities start to control possession control the ball do such exciting things as he does for the U.S. men's national team, and it's just not quite clicking for him right now Chelsea and who knows what the reason is. His best performance this week and then inadvertent one on porn shop, a clip that went viral, no fault of his, not in a good way, David, the mockery. Yeah, you shouldn't have important shop. You should say porn stars, I believe. Is that what it is? I think it's called. Shop sounds like he's involved in something else. Porn stars doesn't I don't know, man. It's not only fun. But he wasn't even in it, but it's led to just a massive pattern of mockery that surrounds American soccer in England in general just including the lines. Is he good? Well, we think of guys like Messi and Ronaldo and he's already been compared to them. I mean God, it didn't favor. Yeah, mostly by Ronaldo. That was an amazing clip. Find it if you've not seen it just a twist at the end for the poor guy and expecting $1500. That was, that was just honestly. It was bloody heart bacon. Anyway, every player of form at the same time at Chelsea, that seems to be the reality. Lucky for them walls don't do the goals, only Norwich is called less than their 13 on the season. And Chelsea really just turned into a rich man's walls, this December. Here's what I thought as I watched this fairly numbing game if shirou was still at Chelsea. How many goals would he have scored in that second half day by two or three? Yeah, he would have had some, but there's no focal point for. For Chelsea, you know, we're going to get to arsenal later, but you know what arsenal played. Look how many arsenal players are in the box. Chelsea just never get players in the box. Just we just aren't playing in the opponent's penalty area and it's just, yeah. It's uninspiring. COVID permitting, beginning of January, Chelsea host Liverpool January the second, possibly behind closed doors and then travel to Manchester City, January 15th. Those two massive showdowns now feel like my swings to keep the dreams of a title alive just still have dreams of a title. No, not at all. I'm just waiting for two call to start playing 5 center backs or 6 center backs. I have no idea what he's going to do. Because that's what he'll do. He will continue to just pack and he had one offensive player on the bench who he didn't bring in at the weekend..

"What the bucket tells them, which is attack attack attack. And on the 25th minute, alongside Meg by James. And clip down rafinha, stutter step the penalty past men the yaml enough to remember when he was a clean sheet machine and with Timo Verna so blunt, so bleeding confidence, Loftus cheek, looking off the pace. Chelsea's response cumbersome, but in the shadow of halftime, Alonso, press, charge forward, a one man redemption mission set the ball across to double M three and three games and the will felt less chaotic for a moment, but where were you mentally in this first half whirlwind? You know, certainly when mount celebrated that goal right into Leeds United. Yes. Away fans. It is an if you wouldn't do that against many other clubs. That was a real testament to the strength of this rivalry and the songs that were being sung by both groups of fans. However, you Chelsea soon kicked in. We saw it in St. Petersburg at the death panic in defense, David. That is just something that is now emanating out the back going forward undermined in the entire team as Chelsea and we got themselves back into the game, then took their foot off the gas, they needed impetus and momentum they were unable to get anything going from that midfield needs must, who charged forward, rudiger, just trying to start something rafinha flew into him in the box unnecessarily and void such correctly in my mind on this one to have clipped him down with his trailing leg. Hop skip scooped home the penalty. Did you believe in that moment, did you let a sigh of relief you like job done, mission accomplished? In that moment. You know, I'm in a weird relationship with Chelsea right now because I'm mostly just interested to see what happens. These are the first struggles of Tucker's managerial career that Stamford Bridge. And I'm just interested to see how he and the team are just to what's going on. I don't expect them to win the league this year. I'm more concerned about them defending the Champions League or doing well in the Champions League. Perhaps winning some other silverware in a domestic cup competition. So I'm just sort of interested to see how they react and the players looked up for it, but certainly there is a frailty about this team that defensively that is Lampard esque. Ben Chilwell, what a giant what a what a vacuum his injuries left and gola can obviously just I mean, my God, COVID hitch even my COVID hits my kingdom for a caveat and they were unable to control the game Chelsea, which down the stretch became exquisitely physical. It was like watching one of those Russian slap fighting videos and leads. They revel in the adrenaline they revel in the agro 83rd minute. 90 seconds after leaving the bench 19 year old scouter, Joe gel tart, nipped in front of Thiago Silva, who's like three, four times, is age and prodded out. His first ever Premier League goal in that moment as he celebrated before the hippolyt leads fans just joy. Just joy. We've earned the point we've heard the point darkness for Chelsea in that moment. Did you feel like more drop points my team that tilting towards crisis? Yeah, man, I don't think it was a crisis, but I think it was going to be some kind of a crisis for Tommy Tuchel in his own mind. And second game in a row looking really bothered looking really unhappy on the bench the entire game. And yes, definitely questions about what he was trying to achieve with his substitutions during the game, but I still felt that there was that there was more in this game, both teams capable of making phenomenal mistakes, both teams charging around like crazed rhinos. Yeah, your team may have forgotten how to defend. They may have lost the ability to country goals like a clenched fist. But they haven't shucked. To me, they're most impressive quality throughout, which is defiance, defiance. Of a Street Fighter and no one street fights Street Fighter and street here and fight here. Then moved to get one. It's like a Dennis Rodman S character, opponents hate, but everyone, and it truly appears in the transfer market right now, truly everyone wants on their team as Thomas Tuchel said postgame. Tony would not take losing on this day, which meant he takes going slightly flippy floppy Devi. Yeah, Rudy got, I think he might mean Street Fighter in German, roger. It's a, look, he's a he's a player blessed with so many qualities. He has phenomenal speed. He gets forward, he's hard, he's tough, he's determined. His teammates seem to love him. He's a good dancer. He has a good in the air, you know, good with his feet. I'm not sure he can shoot from long range, but he's willing to. He does a lot of things, very, very well. This was a soft penalty without a doubt, and rudiger got his foot in between, you know, clicking the ball. It's a penalty we've seen given this year. This was less an inadvertent challenge from click. It was more a what the hell are you doing? Let the bloody stupid and God love rudiger. Definitely feels gravity more than normal human beings, and he became the first Premier League player since March 2010 to win two penalties in one game. Georginio went higher and left on the first penalty low and right on the second and the game ended with in seconds with a melee of play as bench clearing Paul or the football equivalent of a brawl. Chelsea leads one of those multi generational Hatfield and McCoy things you don't know why you don't like the other guy, but you just don't it's in your DNA rudiger and rufin is grandfather's had beef so they don't have a choice. They've just got to carry it on. But it was good to see that much passion at the final whistle. You know, B else's men still languishing near the bottom of the table roger which is tough to figure with all that talent and such an amazing season last year debuted in the Premier League for them for a while. And Chelsea, you know, have an answer to a lot of the critics questions. I still think we see them as defensively weak, and I think you're right defiance and determination seems to be their best quality right now. Yeah, I mean, you'll be seething honestly to have taken nothing out of the game apart from cuts and bruises, but how did you feel at that final whistle? Was it huge relief to cool said? We played with a little bit with the fear that we had something to lose. It always needs a bit of luck. Maybe it's our turn. We needed this win desperately..

"Do you think many places really deserve to be more of a third or fourth screen experience, but I am so bloody excited about this in all sincerity. This is a massive step for men in blazers. You can watch with us, talk with us, shout with us, cry with us, as we go about watching live games together. And the thing I love about Twitch is just the immense participatory aspects of it all. In this world, in which football is everywhere sprinkled across every bloody channel and streamer and everything, imagine a future where we are with you, Dave O and roger, no matter what, that's actually dystopian borderline apocalyptic future. But one question Dave, we have been working on this for ages. Why? Yeah. Why and why do we have to start? With el blaze, everything. It wasn't my idea. Can I just tell you that? This was not my idea. I feel like you did the scheduling for this. And maybe it's because you're a sucker for punishment, or maybe it's because you know how good Everton's record has been against Chelsea in el blaze Erika in the men in blazers era. You mean that you've won 7 four. So you've been not good but not unbelievably terrible. This is just yeah self sabotage on a grand roger sector. Actually, I did schedule this, but we schedule that bloody ages ago. And I am dreading it now. I've got to say a Chelsea who let's be kind of concrete and open play. Playing Everton, who are at this point just a footballing make a wish charity. I expect fully and you can play the tape back on this. Thursday evening, we will be 5 mil down by halftime Timo Verna hat trick. Lukaku double. He'll celebrate both goals. And when politic comes on in the 69th minute, that's music and scores. The gold davout and disputable of the season slaloming through the entire Everton team beating mason hole gate, then let mason hulk get up and then beat him again before intentionally smashing the ball in off Jordan Pickford's down below with a rabona. It's gonna be an agony. Mark my words, rod Everton will score against Chelsea. I believe they will score two goals against Chelsea. And Chelsea are going to have to score more than two to beat them. By the way, the way you are watching of the new Chelsea. The way you say it, it sounds so much coma and it scientific a prediction that my just nightmarish feverish upside down just primal scream of acne. I've got to say the worst for me than being smash 5 nil will be if Everton do open the scoring like the Chicago Bears at Lambeau. I know then all of this, all of this has to add like some kind of trap or trick like ewoks able to win the battle of end or feel fleecy joy and then utterly slaughtered. Right, David, that's what will happen with score first and then you'll absolutely with my race hope destroy us. Anything's possible, roger. It's all a simulation. We'll see what our robot overlords have planned for. Got it. I can't be a rudiger is not a simulation. He is rude. If anyone is proof of a simulation it's Antonio Rudy. And there he is, the robot overlord. That kind of say, I'm expecting this. Dear geo piece to be the most depressing live cover version of Tracy Chapman's fast car. That has ever been sunk. Come join us. Come watch my pain live. Why do we watch? Why do we watch? That's the question that really my whole life has been for the past two weeks, just the highs of arsenal, the lows of Lambeau and selhurst park. As a reminder last week and I'm going to read it again before you tell us the details David one more time of how we get to Twitch along with the GFP public. The great gfo P Gregory michelada sent in an incredible quote, which is really hill but read it so many times in the past ten days from the great Salman Rushdie. Yes, listeners, salmon rushdie, a massive spurs fan wrote these beautiful lines in The New Yorker about 20 years ago. He wrote this is what it means to be a fan to wait, enduring decades of disillusion, and yet have no choice in the matter of allegiance each weekend I turn to the sports page my aorta matically seeks out the spurs result if the team has won the weekend feels richer if the team has lost a black cloud settles its pathetic. It's an addiction. It's monogamous till death do us part love that. That is what we will experience together Thursday, whatever the result they tell the people, how we watch. I'm so excited for this. Okay, just go to twitch.tv slash men in blazers. It's going to have everything. You need to know right there.

"It's got to be younger than George, my ten year old. It was like watching him clop just might be, I can bring on players who have not even been to puberty yet and we can still smash it. Okay, rod brought another similar game Leicester nil Chelsea three the league leaders claim a routine win at the king power and a dominant performance highlighted by an Antonio Rüdiger reversed glancing header and angolo kante pint sized blast with his wrong foot and a Christian Pulisic catch and shoot truth is this could have been 6 rodge, but Chelsea players in a tribute to the injured Timo Verna had three more girls rolled off side at the end of the match week. Tommy Tuchel's mob stay three points clear atop the table. Meanwhile, suffering a serious case of senioritis, having applied early decision to both the united and city jobs, apparently maybe. Under the radars Chelsea, you know, they're only the European champions and three points clear, having lost just once facing a disappointing Leicester City a team who well, kind of remember last time they played two cool squad. They were ahead of them in the table, one win away from Champions League qualification. And that was only 14 Premier League match weeks ago. We are living in the upside down with broad right now. His team have faded far and fast and within four minutes of tone set here, Ben Chilwell. X less the chill while sped in on goal spank the ball against the crossbar, leading the Leicester fans to cheer as if he honestly if you watch it is the noise they make is when a player has blasted it high and wide, and that kind of derision would come back to bite them just ten minutes later, just pinpoint Chelsea set piece magic David. Yeah, you know, interesting definitely a set piece Rudy just starting near the goalkeeper and drifts out to just a beautiful ball from Ben Chilwell. And glances it in. Not many defenders in the league can score that header. Most of the most of them play for Chelsea. Not many strikers. Easy to eat some magnificent. He's got 8 times in the Premier League four times against a fox's proper heat Leicester. And I watch that goal. I was like, Chelsea or machine? And as the Chelsea players celebrated by lifting chilwell into the air, chilies like a little trophy. Yes, they should mount him. That would be great. For the Leicester City perspective, the marking, can we describe this Everton? They have conceded more set pieces. I think 8 times in any Premier League side, this season. I mean, they just start shipping, especially headed goals, issues, issues issues. It would get worse for Leicester. Johnny Evans gave kante a God of honor. Yeah, I mean, it was, it was just phenomenal watching, you know, can't say just run through them. He is fast, but he doesn't make a lot of those offensive runs. Tuco's got him doing that more playing him in a slightly different position. You know, really allowing georginio to sort of sit back in the pivot and allowing kante to get forward and drive forward more. And what a great goal. He doesn't score many rods, but when he does, they tend to be bangers. And that was really Leicester to a T their back line was overwhelmed, their midfield was unable to get their dangerous players look bonds for the on the ball. Never mind into the game. And 20 Rogers game management seemed designed to really just to impress the upper echelons at Manchester United. The love the character of this performance tweeted us. Look at me now. Winning the title for Chelsea and they are magnificent David, you defenders. I would score your attackers on the season, but they barely surrender. Never mind goals. They barely surrender a shot on goal. The one thing that too calls change this season is that last season, he often played 5 genuine defenders across that back line. You know, to the extent that Alonso is a genuine defender, but he would play Dave out on the right. He would play Alonso at left. He's really is playing Bruce James and chilwell when he count is genuinely playing wing backs back there. And changing his center combination. It is a more attacking Chelsea team this season than it was last undertook. Hence these goals coming from all over the place, even without, you know, his one would assume preferred strikers of Romelu Lukaku and Timo Verna. That's the first mention of Romelu during this report. You know, and he's the guy they bought in to score the goals. And so they're just getting them from everywhere. When you say everywhere, they vote, you really mean everywhere because the whole world's talking about this, not just America. 62nd minute, which I don't think Tommy Tuchel understands Chrissy palis music is the 69th minute. That's when he demands the come on. But Chrissy palissy, sauntered on. And what happened mate? Yeah, scored a scored what I would say, you know, not an unbelievable finish, not the most beautiful goal in the world, but the build up was sensational and that the way he made himself free in the box at the end was superb. So good at finding an inch of space in the box. And playing the role of Tim weier twisting defenders inside out, but a phone run across his defenders again. Although against Leicester, he made a lot very easy to find a mile. Of space and God nut making ish Michael never gets old three nil on the road. Another clean sheet big rom still to come back. Huge games against Juventus and listings Manchester United. Are you feeling dangerous, David? Feeling like we're in the fight. A very good team. Better than last year this year, but you know, you call it, you know, you moderate an argument between the between the candidacy of man city, Liverpool and Chelsea to win it this year. You know, forget about what's on the table right now. There are still plenty of games to go. You know, each team has a legitimate claim to win the title this year, and that's magnificent. We haven't had a three horse race for.

"Again. Okay, rob's moving on Chelsea 7 Norwich nil 7 nil. Tommy Tuchel's mob steamroll, the lowly canary is a Mason Mount hat trick, highlights this comprehensive victory over a Norwich team doing their best grandpa Simpson meme impression in and right back out. They are rooted to the bottom of the table through 9 games with as many points as they have two. Chelsea meanwhile, who played without a striker in this one after injuries to big rom and turbo Timo, they stay top of the table a point ahead of Liverpool. Chop, okay? Bottom and the story going into this was how the Chelsea gonna score it go. No Lukaku out of an ankle injury for the next couple of weeks, no Timo Verna which actually thought was probably not a bad thing, no. That's for the American listeners to this podcast. The worry lost it. And I think 8 minutes Mason Mount David, what a player? Yeah, Mason Mount fantastic game, some questions about whether Mason Mount was in the middle of a big Euro 2020 hangover hadn't quite recovered his form and man did he come back in this one. But I would say that this did allow too cool without or force his hand really without big rom and Werner available. He had to play several attacking players. He played 5 attacking players. Chile and Rhys James in the wing bank roles and then Callum Hudson odoi Mason Mount flanking Chi habits in the middle. You know, it's very rare that you genuinely see too cool play 5 attacking players in the lineup is usually got one like real defender playing at playing a wing back. And my God, Chelsea's movement throughout was just superb. I'm not trying to say that Norwich weren't awful because they were awful. But Chelsea played some great football. I mean, I was dealt with a fascinating really trying to unravel where Chelsea's pugnacious ambition and Norwich is just general dreck. They're often where one ended and the other begin because the Mason Mount goal equality the finish was astounding, but the complete abject lack of cover from the knowledge defense was striking. And then you sort of response, Norwich is responsible to just naively try and run straight through Chelsea's press, which was which is almost hard to watch. In a way, in Chelsea just east clear scoring goals of stunning simplicity. And clinically, covert, I love watching him as a creator now killing that ball beyond the despairing Norwich backline show, picking it up in stride, finishing with a laugh that you could almost imagine and hear through the television. David Cho, 17th goal scorer for Chelsea this season. It's an incredible statistic. Yeah, so many people who can hurt your reminds me of that sort of Orlando Magic team at the 1990s. They just had everyone saying that. Just so many scorers. There are so many people who can hurt you. Also one should say, you know, the academy, this has been written about, but the Chelsea academy Cho Mason Mount four goals for players who came out of the Chelsea academy, you've got Rhys. James get 5th goal coming for them out of the academy. Similarly beautiful crisp, cheeky, Julius. That was a fantastic finish. Loftus cheek, who's been reborn undertook, you know, comes out, has a cameo throws in a decent assist. It's just a, you know, that Chelsea academy, these young Chelsea players, these young English players. This is just great to watch for a Chelsea fan. Yeah, I mean, I will say truly incredible. You are underselling how remarkable that it is that the first three scorers were all ones of our own Chelsea, knowing as a club that didn't develop their youth. They were derided. For a decade, but all of that has really changed over the past three seasons. And it's admirable and remarkable as, by the way, is seen to have destroyed. You could say, you know, Loftus cheek and Cho discarded them. But they have been given second chances and seize them magically. That it's a great tribute to really to the players, but also I've got to give two wholesome respect there. And it was three nail when I arrived at the Premier League fan zone at 5 a.m. in the LA darkness and was met with the site of a dozen Norwich fans sadly grasping their inflatable canaries, walking out with tears, it was just the Los Angeles rain, but it was unbearably sad to witness. And this game continued to be as close as the Premier League will give you two U.S. women's national team against Thailand. And I do pity, nor its city, canary in the mine shaft. What English football without oligarchs, nation states, American sports entrepreneurs and piths looks like and you see it in their record against the big four. They beat Manchester City joyously when it came up last time around the three two win. But since then, played 8 one 9 lost 8 four one goal against 29.10. And the nicest way of saying it is Norwich may be just content with their status as the 21st best team in England no more no less. Yeah, no it looks like a tough road ahead for Norwich and poor Josh Sargent. That is heartbreaking. A lot of people tweeting us saying no, it should actually if they forfeited the rest of their games, gave away a three nil loss in each of them. They may have better goal difference than actually playing them, which is cruel. But fascinating, but for your Chelsea davout, a glorious day, yes, it was only Norwich, Premier League's version of it only yank. But you had a hat trick for Mason Mount, Cho plays way back into form another clean sheet for men, they think 20 of his 38 Premier League matches have been blanks, Lukaku, still to come back refresh. Even rumored to be returning soon and a fitting way to mark 25 years to the day that Matthew Harding passed away David. Beautiful moment. Yeah, beautiful Matthew Harding has a stand named after him at the ground. You know legendary executive. I think he was the club vice chairman and really stepped up pre abramovic. Stepped up to put the club on some kind of financial footing in order for everything that followed afterwards. It was a remarkable mannequin more naive time of football, but football was changing Chelsea had to keep up, and he made his fortune and insurance stepped up with his own money and started a fund European players arriving. It was him that in vial labor setting the club up in his tradition of sexy sexy football he died coming back from a Chelsea game tragically in a helicopter crash. Die too soon. And it was a fitting and beautiful and wonderful way to mark his memory. Brighton one Manchester City four, the seagulls delusions.

"I don't think it's going to get a lot better. So I think yes, it's great. I'm glad for them that they got a win a two nil loss would have been. I can't imagine if they'd lost that game or even drawn that game against Atlanta. The ramping up even more ramping up pressure on OGS. But yeah, all the problems are still there. And what we should raise aha to rinaldo a 137 goals in a 179 games just one incredible header of should say. An exquisite exquisite Luke Shaw cross. I mean, it really was a work of art. And I'm not just saying that because men in places has a forthcoming loop Shaw into the television show and I'm praying that he reverts to the form of the late half of last season so that he's really in peak apogee when we run it. But, you know, Manchester were bottom of group F at one point this evening and they emerge now top with 6 points. I think the game been burger bag is going to be unbelievable in the next match day just oh my God. I mean, you read about how Atalanta, the team in their hotel was woken up 6 times overnight by united fans pulling the fire escape following the fire alarm. I mean, there's a Concacaf rules. This game will be Champions League football, played by Concacaf rules times a hundred. And I think I felt like this gave, you know, if I said, I want to see our comments really for the question and answer part of this podcast so that we can really project what united fans are feeling. No problem is like, oh my God. Olay is going to be manager of this team for the next decade and the whole decade will be on the brink of being fired. He'll just constantly edge. He's going to come here. But you need to see you have Liverpool coming. You are right. If this game had stayed too near or too long, you know, now all chaffin has to rise again for Sunday because this team needs these fans needs that adrenaline needs that passion. That's all they brought football of passion, not football or brain, football of emotion, not football of intelligence, not of tactic to football of the individual, the flare, the moment. That's what we thought. And maybe this was all they brought in in its purest and its purest form. JWS texted me after the game and said, all they is a magician. Yes, he's a magician in the same way. As Joe from Arrested Development was a magician. But I just feel like God, this was a great win, but it was a win that was like a toupe on the bald man. The faults are so evident. So self evident, they're so glaring still, even in the moment of victory. There was another game tonight we will talk more about it. No doubt Chelsea football club had a penalty clinic really David. We lost big room and Timo Verna to injury. So bad, news and good news there. Could be could be both. Could be both. For either player, look, Chelsea have so much depth. They came back. We don't know how bad the injuries are. Yet, but yeah, a good win a forno win in Europe is always good. We should say that yesterday's games, I'm sure there are lots of livable fans. And maybe one or two city fans listening to city with an impressive win at Bruges and a good win for Liverpool against Atlético so many storylines in that game. There was some incredible game of football a true spectacle and just my lord may sell at what a contract negotiation can do to an elite footballer. It's like, in my evil heart, and Benny Bennett's evil heart, I'm hoping that it's like watching Obama Yang just store for contract, and then it's just going to fall off a cliff, but I don't think it's going to be that way. I don't think it's going to be that way. Should we move to the questions, David, because we both love it in the face. Yeah. Absolutely, roger. We're going to call you up on stage. Invite you to speak. When you moved to the stage, please just remember, stay muted until we call on you and a reminder to everyone listening. The only way you can ask the question is to join us here live on the green room. Rod, who is up first? Oh, that is a very good question. Apologizing, Benny Bennett, you may hear Marty Scorsese who is yelping in the background then on wire. I want to apologize. But, you know, my life is a living help with Marty Scorsese.

"Battle to be the one true football managing Tommy. So Thomas Frank took static benford clash with Tommy two holes European champion Chelsea for the first time since 1947, and the mighty B cell audacious so optimistic that this opening, and I Premier League existence has been so bloody joyful and they've taken on all comers with confidence and consistency. And you kind of knew they'd relish the chance to have at you in their tiny bare pit, right? Yeah, it was a great bear pit. And you know, this is a great team. You know, this was a great result in the end. Perhaps fortunate result, but it was a great result. Chelsea started well, roger, pin Brentford back, certainly looked, you know, in control, but struggled to find poor genuine clear opportunities to put the ball in the back of the net, well, on opportunities to put the ball in the back of the net, which is always difficult when team I was playing. But gradually they definitely started their dominance in the first half. And I think they deserved their opener. Can we talk about Romney Lukaku for a moment? 5 games without a goal ahead of this one. And the days in which we perhaps prematurely held him as a cheat code in the final piece in the puzzle after slapping arsenal feel, well, like a different eon. Never mind. Score the gent is really on the ball right now. I think he had similar 18 touches in this one. How do you understand it? Look, I think there's definitely a question mark on Romelu Lukaku right now. I think it's probably a little premature because it hasn't been a poor start for him. He's scored, you know, he's scored goals. He's assisted goals. He's got himself in great positions, and he works hard as he did. Again, this week, I think the bigger question is exactly, you know, Tommy Tuchel is being challenged a little bit right now because of injuries because of lack of form and his seems to be struggling to find his best side and find the way he wants to play going forward. This was yet a new combination sitting behind Romelu Lukaku. He doesn't seem to have adjusted yet to playing Mason Mount football. Having said that, I thought the Loftus cheek was superb in this game, you know, arguably our best outfield player. But just not a lot of great service into romulo from either wing. Alongside him, Timo Verna maintaining is avant garde performance art of a striker unable to score. We've been told he's going to come good for about four or 5 months now, but Chelsea's why admire about them. In need of a goal? Let's lower our defenders to their scoring massive goal thing again. And in either Bennett time, 45 minutes plus two, I think it was Chelsea's only shot uncle or game David. Yeah, it was. And it seemed to come out of nowhere. Yes, out of pressure. But out of nowhere and chilwell, who's, you know, after being very, very quiet, even invisible for the first few weeks of the season, he's now back and seems to be automatic first choice at left back. After Dave cross spanking the ball home, no sweet, sweet, red and white nets at Brentford. Making the finish see me for more stunning, some week for Benny C, it's got his first goal of season last weekend against Southampton. First ever in England, Jersey, midweek now this reports of his demise. Greatly exaggerated, but Brentford. So well coached so game. Look at them. Eddie can't help but think of our U.S. men's national team and the difference a great coach can make to a squad. They are so bloody determined and it should be said Kovacic was off in this one. The midfield battle tilted to the bees in that second half, they continued to land their punch, ten shots on target and onslaught. It's honestly it was a miracle that they didn't score a few. If you're an alien landing at the stadium and you went up to a humanoid and said, who are these two teams and the humanoid just said, yeah, one of them is about to go top of the table. A road thinking alien would guess must be Brentford, right? They were superb. That final 20 minutes or so were just unbelievable. Chelsea doing everything they could and working so hard defensively trying to hold on to win the game. But Brentford had all the pressure and just fired up by their crowd rod and their manager to unbelievable that they couldn't put the ball in the back of the net. Brentford XG expected goals for the game was 1.88. Chelsea's XG for the game was 0.28, which tells you pretty well all you need to know is a home crowd bellowed. We're going to score in a minute, Tony came closer, but Édouard Mendy was allure alive. He carried everything down the stretch. Saved after to save one, off his face like jossi, but in a good way. I mean, mendy to me is the highland of goalkeepers. And remember, I wrote this in my newsletter today that when Peter check was in his pomp, fans, particularly also fans used to say when you play Chelsea, it's like because of check, they start one nil up, which actually, the more you think about it, the less makes any sense at all. But mendy is that good at the moment. It's like check Ethan. This probably is when Frank Lampard watches this team, he regards this as perhaps his greatest legacy that he didn't believe in Kappa. He sat capper and him and his old mate pettick signed Édouard Mendy and boredom in, and it was a brilliant, brilliant brilliant move. They found a guy who has immediately adjusted the Premier League and become, you know, if not its top keeper, top three, where they haven't been in that position for a long time. Thomas Frank, the Brentford manager said his team should hold their head high in defeat his words were top performance. They nicked a win. They got a very lucky win. They won the Champions League a few months ago and we got promoted from the playoffs. I mean, this team shocked arsenal, went toe to toe with Liverpool in that drawer, almost. You know, I mean, ultimately, you got a credit bloody Chelsea in this one for holding on and emerging from the fighting pits and marine with all three points, David. Yeah, look, it's what it's what it's do. I actually believe Brentford got promoted on the same day that Chelsea won the Champions League roger Chelsea are that kind of a team. They're top of the league and they're certainly not playing the best football in the league. And certainly not playing their best football right now, but they're top of the league and just winning, holding on to win, holding on finding a way to win is something that's successful teams do. Agree, they are top of the table and no one's talking about them. That's what's so surreal about this match day of football. They took all three points clean sheet to a miraculous one and I love this stat with the win. Chelsea are the first side from the capital to win 7 consecutive away London derbies in the English football league history. Kings are the big smoke Devo. Look at you now. Look at us now. We'll be back to talk the rest of this weekend's Premier League action after a quick word from the gfo piece at policy genius..

If it happens we will talk about it on monday when we have all the facts. How about that right. Portugal and france battle two two draw jewels. Was this a fair result. I think he was in the end. Everybody would be happy with gab. Franz in the second half where the better team with the better team in the first half it was penalties could have been more. Because i think the ad ride the end. The fall of renton committees a penalty. One hundred percent. You kinda makes up for the rather fugazy wine right. Yeah i guess so. Cassation that the puck was fantastic. We're not to sanchez. Was very good as well We coming benzene finally scoring christiano scoring to record the record of over just quickly moment of the game though was pitchy. Just before ben's mit's penalty showing patricio. He's gonna shoot here on your mind's eye unless you hear ben's each short hair. The patricia went the other way. And then people went to see me and said i told you. Man what did you do. let's not be harsher and reproduce and you made some big saves so talking about this game and cristiano ronaldo twice as we said two days records of hundred and nine got although is another seventy seven before the end of his career to equal christine sinclair who holds the records for the women's game could even more because cruising hasn't tired yet. she's older. she's thirty eight years old. Apparently i i think knowing what we know about. Cristiano won't be surprised if once he breaks. Elliott is record. He's like wait. There's another human being scored more international goals than i have caller. Id to keep growing jobs. Now i told you. Spain and my main man louison ricky would come good. It's a five nil. Rahm pass latakia. Who's dot got okay. All right come on. That was a great first goal spent with fantasy and we've been saying from the beginning play better than what people say the play better than the results showed and now that he form booths coming back with big though he dictated the tempo so well you know what i would no want to face them late in the tournament for sure drama. Munich germany gab. And it takes late leg. Go from leone garage for you to avoid defeat. Draw two two and move on. That was that was good enough. Yeah shot to hungary. I thought they played really really well but we still take for them. This was a terrible performance from germany. And i think we kinda saw the end. You'll be live because at our one down. You know needing a win because of events new needing result because of events elsewhere. There's no plan. He just trucks on every single attacking player. Finished the game with with chemo. Verner kevin fallen. Thomas mola's gerrad. Timo verna was playing left back at the end. Leroy signing was playing right. Breitbart i i mean. It was just an ultimate hail. Mary a lot of drama on the day like germany can play better. They can come good. We'll see what happens but I wrote a whole piece about this. Does not want to be remembered as the guy who stuck around too long and there was a risk that we were heading sweden end up topping the group. Thanks to a late goal in a three two win over poland jews. Living dusky did what he could is called to gab. Missed mister xiujuan. As well probably the of the tournament so far what you want him to do. He's on his own you can't it can't be start and at the end of every move. So cristiano deduct christianity. The christian has a better supporting cast and live on god ski. It's sad because you would want him in there in the next ron. And he's not going to be there. But you munich gab. You if i got hamad for that decision to not allow the mayor of the city to light up the alien serena with the rainbow flag for the germany. Hungary game in protests. About the the rules against homophobia four homophobia in hungary. Yeah i just wanted to be very clear about this. I actually have a lot of sympathy here with uefa. Because they have a rule saying like no political No political displays are allowed. I do not think and you do not think that support for lgbtq causes support for inclusion is a political closet is a shared value that everybody has a little bit like the fight against racism. However in this case the mayor of munich. It this makes me wonder about his motives. He wrote to them saying. Oh no i want to let up the stadium specifically because i disagree with a law. That was passed in the hungarian parliament. I disagree with that law to. I think it's shameful. But you brought it into the political sphere when you said this is why i want to do it. He didn't do it for the previous games. He did it for that reason. So at that point were stuck between a rock and hard place I think it's great. That a lotta people came out brought flags with them the support. I'll even back to. The guy ran onto the pitch. Before kick-off flag menu zomba amount of noise been consistent throughout hats off to him. But i think we need to be very very clear that once. You're aiming this at a specific political decision. This job that the european union each this job for politicians at this stage. I'm not comfortable with sporting governing body. Taking ally line against a specific law passed in a sovereign nation european union by the way house. Way down in this they. They've called it shameful. Hopefully that will be action taken I would love to see support for. Lgbtq eligibilty community. Just just be part and parcel of this but once you aim at specifically at a specific country. You're asking you to do something which is beyond its remit. So i disagree with you. Know the full story here. Higuain beat the czech republic one nil to advance group winners another minimalist performance from southgate's group. Completely i want to give him a pass. Because i don't want people to think every time we hammer him. This is just not good enough for me. We said please go for a sexy football with play with flan. We've got five minutes and new drug british crosby and the sterling goal and then pretty much. We got a lot of religion even a tiny bit of science and suck suck up at grains but in the second half. You've got zero expecting goals. There's no shot. there's nothing happening. We'll falling asleep. It's ridiculous emotional scenes on the other. Hand are the parken stadium in copenhagen denmark. Get their first points to advanced against russia in one win with a goal difference made them that they qualify for the next round. Yeah there's shades of of nine hundred ninety two and they weren't even in a tournament on holidays all came back to see them on the page at the final whistle after what they've been through just a few steps away from where christian erickson had collapsed Earlier in the tournament.
