The Buildings

"Don't have an emergency kit in your car preppy has you covered. Use the code the big one to receive a free three day emergency kit with any purchase food water. First aid and emergency, essentials all included. Go to preppy dot co. That's P R E P P, I dot CO slash the big one. Hey, everyone. You know, what I'm going to say, right? It takes a lot of money and time to create a podcast like this. And it would help us immensely if you go to KABC dot org and become a member today. Thanks. We have this idea that when something bad happens. We learn a lesson that we adjust that we improve that we move forward. I'm buildings are good example, we used to build some out of adobe and then earthquakes like the one in eighteen fifty seven blew them over like they were built out a straw. And we thought all right. We can do better. So we built buildings out of bricks. And then in nineteen thirty three this quake in Long Beach pulverize those and a bunch of people died, so he thought what's better than brick? Steel. And we were pretty pleased with ourselves because steel is strong and ductile if you take a plastic spoon and you're trying to bend. It. You try to you know, bend it back and forth. A couple of times you will see that. You'll quickly snap. It. That's a brittle system. It's it breaks very easily cannot go through back and forth movement. This is structural engineers. Swami nothing Krishnan I've talked with him a lot about steel buildings lately. He worked with Lucy Jones on the shakeout report. And he's been very very patient explaining complicated. Topics to me, if you take St. wire instead, and you try to go back and forth, you cannot break it. It will be able to go through large cycles back and forth, a needle you excel cycles before it actually snaps right? That is ductile behavior. Immaterial that does that is is good for an earthquake because an earthquake is going to shake your building back and forth. Several times. We trusted steel building so much that from the nineteen sixties through the early nineties. We built a lot of buildings out of it in a very specific way. Some are one story are more than fifty stories tall. And there are thousands of these steel moment frame buildings that have been built around LA because steel is strong, and it's flexible the thing is a building skeleton isn't made out of just one piece of solid steel and has joints. They take these pieces of steel bring them together bolt them and then welded all creating a Lincoln log cabin and gluing the pieces together something called a welded steel moment frame connection an earthquake proof solution. So we thought. We were wrong. I'm Jake Margolis misses the big one. Here's survival guide episode six the buildings. Quake was to hit right now. How far away is your emergency kit. Preppy wants you to have your supplies within arm's reach when the big one hits not stashed deep in the closet or the garage preppy is designed forward kits are attractive enough to be displayed rightness faces you actually spend time in such as the living room their range of products. Have you covered at home the office or in the car made in Los Angeles. Preppy handsome, canvas and leather bags are so heavy duty. They come with a lifetime warranty. And for listeners of the big one. They are actually giving away three day kids for free with any purchase. Could a preppy dot co. That's p r e p p I dot CO slash the big one for free preppy go box with any purchase. That's P R E P P, I dot CO slash the big one. So this might sound weird. But I absolutely love driving south on the one freeway from the San Fernando Valley. When there's no traffic. It's really easy. You just pop over some hills around a few turns and then off in the distance the skyline of downtown LA comes into view, it's pretty phenomenal. So there's construction going behind me a huge scooper scooping lunch of dirt. There's a bus driving by a bunch of cars and right now, I'm sitting in the middle of square over the last few months, I've become super obsessed with these twin buildings in downtown LA. So recently, I took a trip there to go. Check them out these buildings. They're basically identical which kinda makes them look like siblings that are up to something look up, but you see or two buildings to giant buildings sitting national Bank building left and the Paul Hastings building on my right each fifty two stories tall. And each of them at the bottom have these gigantic columns that are like the first who stories, so it's kind of this wide sweeping view when you walk towards towards the opening and each building sheath in this greenish brownish, really shining looking stone. They look really really solid. Here's the thing. I don't know if they are back in the early seventies two buildings were under construction in the San Fernando quake hit it was a six point six strong enough to do a lot of damage before. Dawn a massive shock rippling out of the mountains, just north of the San Fernando Valley getting here missing their shaking, most of southern California like an angry and shakes being Giles. More than sixty people died after the so marquait hit investigators went out to inspect the still under construction buildings. And they wrote a report about what they found quote. A twenty five percent increase in the number of cracks in the welds in the to lower stories of both steel frame towers in the normal welding process cracks can form as metal cools. The debate was to the earthquake causes cracks were the cracks already there. And the earthquake just made them worse. Here's another line from the investigators report, the potential problem of earthquake induced weld stress cracks in modern steel frame buildings is disquieting that was nineteen seventy-one. They fixed the welds moved forward with construction and finish the buildings. I learned about this whole thing from FEMA report written in two thousand. Talked about the towers and in that report, they say pretty much the same thing as earlier investigators. Maybe these cracks were already there. Maybe the earthquake made them worse. We cannot tell for sure. In any case after the Cellmark quake in seventy one. Even though investigators saw a possible problem with building technique. We kept using it. We probably would have kept building the same way then north of Chen. The entire region has been plunged into complete blackness Tripathi. They don't have water. Dead inside the rubble over hillside homework to people one of this woman's daughter. Out on the highways officer, Rick miler is the damage to sections of the Golden State freeway three hours ago. This was nice clean freeway. At the time. All I knew is that we had a client that had damaged buildings, and I was I was going out to look at them. Structural engineer. David Sola and went to check out to new steel buildings. Not the ones I'm obsessed with these two other steel buildings that were just a few miles from the epicenter built the same way one story building. When I looked at it. You could see why they were concerned the building was actually visibly leaning a little bit about four inches out a Plum. So you could see with the naked eye that there was a permanent offset of the building. Basically. There was a chance that with all of the aftershocks that could collapse so yellow tagged and David and these other guys went to check out the other building you couldn't tell looking at the four story building that there was anything wrong. I think from the outside saw a broken window painter to inside didn't seem that bad. Either. Some furniture was thrown over some ceiling tiles. On the floor. Then this contractor who's just kind of cleaning up. He notices something. And I remember they said did you did you see the column here? And I said why haven't looked closely and they brought me over there to look at this. They were looking at this fluffy wolf fireproofing, which looked mostly fine. But then David looked closer. And we scraped it off. And we found out that that steel flange had pulled out of the column base. The welded just pulled a chunk right out of the face of the column. And that was a big, wow. The welds hadn't held in the earthquake and the majority steel connections throughout the entire building had broken resupplies when they found that very surprised why I remember well because that wasn't the way they were supposed to behave in the moment frame buildings prior to the Northridge earthquake were thought to be the premier lateral force. Resisting system, you could have an building. And they were going to be duck Dolan absorb lots of energy. And this was inducted at all. It was a brittle fracture. This wasn't the type of damage you would expect to have seen in a building. So it was all unprecedented. You don't you? Don't wanna go up to work one day. All of a sudden, you're dealing with something that nobody's ever seen before. Reports of damage to steal buildings came in from all over the city. And we learned a lot building codes were changed and bunch of buildings were retrofitted structural engineers. Agreed. We won't use this building technique going forward. But we didn't do was inspect or fix or tear down all of the remaining steel buildings that have been built this way. My not part of it was politics part of it was that the Northridge quake didn't shake hard enough for us to soom all these buildings were damaged part of it was cost more on that later. But I keep thinking about the quake back in nineteen seventy one. And the fact that there are these two giant welded steel moment frame buildings in downtown LA that we know have had problems after an earthquake that haven't yet been challenged by a big one the city national Bank building and the Paul Hastings building, formerly known as the ARCO towers. I wanted to find prints for the ARCO towers plans for the building some kind of documentation that was show me. The last time they were inspected or if they'd ever been retrofitted. So I went to the most logical place you could go to the L A department of building and safety in downtown. I sure the stable with you. Thank you. Actually. Yeah. I worked for a radio station in Los Angeles. While records. I was like this is exactly what people come here for to record. Because I was like can I get this info public knowledge? So make sense. I'm waiting now for them to poll record print them out. Okay. East really seven. Of. Hi, how are you? I was hoping to get architectural records like the blueprints for these two buildings on south flower street. I guess it would be blueprints plans. And I don't know any additional information. I'm I can pull out them like who owns them that kind of stuff. I am recording. I called up one of my bosses are when nex. Tell me what's happening. I want to go look for the record. And they told me that they were completely private ten. So I can't actually pull any of the blueprints. And I don't know why they're restricted I went up to another office building. And they couldn't even tell me why. And he said, okay, you need to submit a public request to find out. And so now, I'm at where I know nothing more now than I hit two and a half hour to go. When I see you need to submit a public records just passed to figure out why something is that. Yeah. That's what. What if you're someone who has an area inclination for finding these loop friends? I mean, it's like every die hard movie has Lou Princeton. It those are bad guys. But I I think that hurt me. I think the fact that you can't figure out where to start to prove that. You're good guy is weird. Okay. Also, I think that the buildings that were looking at might be one of the characters works and so insecure just. That last night very very very possible. Okay. I'll see you in the morning. Okay. Okay. Bye. Bye. It's called the department of building and safety. And all I wanted was some sort of evidence that these buildings are safe. Eventually I just decided to ask the owners spoiler alert than go. Well. Remember when that building collapsed in the first episode of the show. So when I was writing that I was thinking about a steel moment frame building in downtown LA. That's because they're featured in one of the scariest parts of the shakeout report based on simulations of what major shaking due to eighteen and nineteen story. Seal moment frame buildings in the report, they say that as many as five steel buildings small large across southern California could catastrophically collapse and that ten or more could be red tagged. The research was done by Swami often was with Caltech at the time is the guy who taught us about. Would you be surprised if a tall building collapsed in downtown Los Angeles in the event of big Sandra's quake? No, I would not be surprised. Wanna building collapses in a movie, it usually goes like this. The shaking starts. The building sway. Person screams more people scream. They rushed for doorways. And then Dwayne the rock Johnson swoops in a helicopter and saves. His ex wife. While the building disintegrates in everyone else's crushed. It's not exactly how could go down the possible. Reality is less pulpy Swami nothin thinks it could go like this. The rolling kind of waves of will come in. And they will go up the building. And the building was start shaking. Back and forth back and forth field these waves going through it as if it's a big Scheuer running to your spine. Hit a lot of noise until the noise. Things falling things that king. But you might start to hear lots of ups these connections, perhaps factoring. Team action physically breaking in some places and here that in big pops. And as the as a keep shaking back and forth back and forth. More and more damage get accumulated, and generally speaking when when we buildings close to collapse we will start to see that damage becoming significant very large over let's say three to four stories in Saudi. Swami nothing says you could see three or four floors moving away from the building he compared to an athlete's knee popping out of the socket making their entire leg buckle, and, you know, tall building, you know, you could be carrying those four stories could be cutting ten stories above them, and then longer able to support their weight, and it would end up pancake these four stories meaning the floor slabs in those four stories will come down and impacting impacting each other. You know, you might see the upper storeys also pancake on top of each other. And then depending on what's happening to the base. How strong the the the stories that are below these four stories are depending on that then taught building might come pen kicking down. That's one possibility. The the possibility is the upper Saudis are Ted it and follow leaving this little stub piece. Stick. Out of the ground that there are several possible scenarios since we started building sway in LA. We haven't had an earthquake strong enough to collapse one of these buildings back in nineteen eighty-five. There was an eight point one quake in Mexico City that did collapse some steel moment frame buildings, but they weren't made exactly the same way we make them here. It wasn't quite an apples to apples comparison. More like lime to lemon. So it didn't change what we were doing. I would be surprised if as many as ten were to collapse, but not surprised at all if a few such buildings collapsed. Structural engineer. Ron hamburger reviewed Swami. Nothing's work on the shakeout report. I think a number of engineers don't really believe that it's a huge problem. The reason for that is we tend to be influenced by what we experience and what we see in the United States. We've not yet seen any building of this type collapse. And so when you tell people this is a real problem. It's not unusual for them to say show me the bodies. Show me the bodies this idea relates to a lot of what we've been saying this entire series that there's compelling science that we know this could be a problem, and we know what we can do to fix it. And then we don't do everything we can. Some places are taking precautions with these buildings Santa Monica in West Hollywood have mandatory retrofit programs in LA, we have retrofit programs for other brittle structures brick buildings sauce story apartments concrete buildings. There are away more of those kinds of buildings and there are steel moment buildings in the reason. Government officials require that they'd be retrofitted is that they're generally way more dangerous in an earthquake. But for steel buildings. Well. I asked LA mayor Eric Garcetti. What are you doing about them? Nothing is the answer. Way. It's largely up to the building owners. That's not say we're not doing anything to look at laws that would address that like San Francisco is considering now that's our next chapter. So if we know that there's even a miniscule chance something bad like a building. Collapsing could happen. Why aren't we doing everything we can to mitigate the threat it's a little bit crass? But suppose, I told you that ninety nine point nine percent of anyone in greater Los Angeles is going to survive the big earthquake. Is that acceptable to you? I would say I would say we should probably try to do everything that we can to save every life. I think to to posit a large earthquake in an urban environment, like Los Angeles and say that it is unacceptable. If anybody dies in Edrich wake I think that's unreasonable, especially if you have limited public money to put toward reducing the losses structure engine. David Bonowitz has a lot of worries about a big earthquake. But the collapse of steel moment building isn't at the top of his list. I'd be I'd be a fool to say nothing could ever happen. That's the the question is whether you know, that damage is the kind of collapse level damage that normally gets us worked up to the point where we have mandatory benefit programs on not seeing that yet. Show me the bodies. Not having bodies at our feet, isn't the only reason we aren't mandating retrofits, it's money, and politics and priorities. We have a homelessness crisis. We have schools we need to improve California's literally on fire all the time. And then there's the cost it could be upwards of fifty thousand dollars to retrofit one steal moment connection. According to Swami often there can be thirty to forty connections on each floor. Now, imagine you've got a twenty story building. Are you doing that math in your head? That's millions of dollars retrofitting connections. That may hold up. Just finding earthquake now extrapolate that across a thousand plus buildings in Los Angeles alone who takes on building owners city. How much is a life worth. This this. This is why obsessed with these towers. I know they're steel moment frame. I know that issues after seventy one quake. I don't know the last time they were inspected don't know if they've been retrofitted, and I don't know if they're safe for the thousands of people that work in them every day. So I called the people who bought them common with. Hi, my name is Jacob Margolis. I'm calling from KPCC. Yeah. So I'm calling in regards to two towers that you guys are the owners of that I had some questions about and one of the things that we're looking at is structural integrity of certain buildings. And so there are some there have been some documented issues with those two buildings. And so I had some questions for someone that could possibly answer them for me. Okay. That's great. So what's the operation? Injures name. Mike brooks. All right, great. If you could put me through his voicemail, that'd be wonderful. Mr brooks. I'm falling on my query from last week. In researching what will happen when a major earthquake strikes the region given that the towers building come well following in that regard. I would like to. Rhetoric about Howard Hegarty share records -cation considering the rich win by whom or the wealth in the towers and spend was the last time inspections of the world's in the towers to place share these records as well. Is there any damage found during inspections and how exaggerates share records about the damage and how what guarantee can you give those working in the building that will be safe in a larger quake what contingency plan? Do you have in place to address structural issues that my mon- deadline and available ASAP best Jake Margolis high following up on my Email from yesterday to confirm that used books following up on my previous Email, Mr. brushed out to Steph following up to make sure that you received the above Email, Jake Margolis? I didn't get an Email back. I called her offices again. And again, they're always a way or in a meeting among call I asked receptionist by knowing that called me back then from somewhere else in the office it sounded like someone asked her who was on the phone. She said KPCC there is muffled chatter. She hung up on me, so decided to just flower street, thirty seconds. Sorry. About. Let's register I sorry to register. Okay. All right. Cannot go up to thirty second floor with. Let's get it back. So how do I get up to the thirty seconds? Lori. So I'm here to see Commonwealth partners. The the owners. Innoc- contact. I don't I just I have a question for them journalists, and I wanted to come ask a question about about the buildings. They said that you would have a common to set up an appointment. So I can't get up without a pass. Right. Okay. So I couldn't get up to see them. I was foiled by very basic security. They wouldn't even let me through. So I'm gonna think I'm gonna call them and ask if I can come up comment. Hi, my name's Jake Margolis reporter with KPCC in Los Angeles, National Public Radio station here. I was wondering I'm actually I happen to be downtown and office manager leeann NHA who wouldn't give me her. Last name told me that their comment is no comment. All right. Thank you so much for she ate it. Digging through my notes afterwards. I realized something cana- big buildings are actually mostly owned by California's public employee's retirement system, a giant pension fund that's paid into by roughly two million members. Politicians teachers garbage collectors judges a bunch of people CalPERS. They ties he's different firms to invest in things for them and Commonwealth partners is one of those firms. So Commonwealth did the buying CalPERS is the major money backer. And when I asked CalPERS for comment, they sent me back to Commonwealth saying co managing partner. Michael Croft was expecting my Email. So I wrote him, and I bet you can guess how that went. When I told CalPERS Michael never wrote back. They said thank you for the opportunity. We do not have a common. I got nothing. So I try to different route. I asked every structural engineer. I spoke with about the ARCO towers. They all responded the exact same way as Ronnie number. Yeah. I don't have direct knowledge of that. And won't come into the only people who can say for certain what's going to happen to them are the ones who inspect the buildings to assess absolutely ever not. There are safe. No, an ordinary person can't do that. I mean, it takes training. It takes extensive analytical work to figure out if they give building a safe. We don't know what's going to happen to the ARCO towers or any of the other steel moment frame buildings across southern California. They could be okay when the big one hits or maybe the ground motion soil composition, brittle welds will all come together, and some of them will collapse partially claps the truth is no building we make will ever be one hundred percent safe after the next big one. We'll see the bodies, and we will realize a whole bunch of things about the code that. We didn't before. I bet you anything that we will then do something. So what the hell are you supposed to do about any of that? Let's say you work in an office building in LA. See if you can figure out who owns it. Ask them ask what is made out of when it was built if it's ever been retrofitted. I hope you have better luck than I did. Would you let your your wife or your kids work in a building? And downtown really, I would say in one particular case, I did discourage my wife to walk in particular, building new that building was a certain kind. He doesn't want to specify which building it is. But it's a steel moment frame kind. So I said, no, let's let's why don't we look for something else. And so that's the you know this season, right? That one has to make and it is very hard for you to knowing all this to allow your spouse to work in a building like that. Let me put it that way. She is fearless. She says, and that's the nature of the problem. She says what an earthquake that read Ono when it's going to happen. And whether it's even going to happen in our lifetimes, should we make such a decision because this great job. Why? Why should I not be taking it too? Great question that she's asking. And that's the question that ninety nine point nine nine percent of the people that are asking. She take the job. No. She didn't. See convinced her. Yes, I did. But not wholly. I I suspect not wholly, but I sort of my kids look at those gates. It's you gotta be brutal at some point. If you wanna really want to convince wife sometimes. coming up producer Michel Yousef has tips on how to tell if your house condo apartment are safe. When the big one hits these are the people that I would want by my side mich- Yussef, who's our lead producer Orin champion. Knicks is our executive producer. Mary Naf is our assistant producer. Megan Garvey, is are very very very patient. Enter our music is by Andy, Clawson, our engineers. We have to filter out. All of my tummy sounds are Shawn Corey Campbell. In Valentino Rivera. Our design works by Stephanie craft. This episode written by me, Jake Margolis with lots of help from Arwen nex, the marketing credit goes to Alex Laughlin. Thanks to James Cam for always sitting at his standing desk. Thanks to keep quarter. Mike Engelhardt for zodda Naim and Tom Heaton for sharing their insights about steel buildings. I'm your host Jacob goalless. Hey, big on listener. It's me media still lead producer haven't gotten fired yet. And I do have some more tips for real. So this ups owed is all about buildings, and whatever you do. I'm pretty sure you're in buildings at least some of your time. So tip number one. If you're in a house get it inspected if it's a raised foundation. Make sure that it's been bolted and braced it can stop your place from sliding off the foundation and collapsing. If you're on a solid foundation make sure that secured number two, if you're in an apartment, it's a little tougher, but you can ask your landlord when you're building was built, and what's been done to retrofit it. If it's a soft story that would be a building with a carport underneath the front. You can see steel beams have been added to strengthen it if not you should really consider getting out of their tip. Number three, condos are much less likely to have been retrofitted, especially if they couldn't get all the HOA folks degree tip number four. If you work in. A big office building especially downtown. And they tell you it's on rollers. It's probably not ask them if they've done any retrofit if not consider whether you want to work there. That's it for tips. That's it for two.

"At IBM problems inspire us to push the world forward. That's why so many people work with us on everything from city traffic to Shen plastic smart loves problems. Ibm A. B. M. Let's put smart to work visit. IBM DOT COM slash smart to learn more welcoming welcoming solicitation of ESPN AFC. Thomas from my Craig. Billions Schachter here's Guy Malti. We'll be joining us. A little later. On as things off inland leaguer force the big game Atlanta Got Madrid voss alona athletic and dominant throughout this match task for what we thought was a man-of-the-match performance that was was eclipsed you could argue though by the winning. Go another absolute worldy Leeann. Now let's see the gate Balsa a nil win in win in Madrid then put some level on points around Madrid at the top of the table as severe moved up to third pat today. Se Gentlemen just stealing the headlines once again the difference with a one today Oh yup. Yeah crippled unsafe. Messy wasn't pleading athletic would have been the case because tests taken. Yep Kinda keep Eh one end. And he's delivering the other end to really you know It was mentioned an has been mentioned. This came to paper over the cracks exercise. But I suppose you're a manager if you go and set them you bald you just say well another win. So he has kind of getting over the line for his manager. At the moment but only takes an injury or a cutler games for that to change because Bossa will not good but they got the the job done and listen to kick themselves not to be kicking themselves. You know the data CIANCI's Yes till steak and made saves but they didn't do enough young Joe Felix and then in the first half holly in the second off got taken off the upside for them as Murata is looking better than he wasn't Chelsea but that's a very low bar but they had off the pacers well at the moment on the semi only ten years ago today messy wanting I balance door during that time. Is it right to say that. Also also lower line on him now than they've oh absolutely absolutely you just have to look at a particularly coming from midfield who I in my in in my opinion. I don't think Boston get anything midfield. So as a result too often on which is written seek message ULTA Games. He's dropping back in trying to get on the bowl and doesn't have any kind of kind of impacted expect especially against a team. Like I let McCall Madrid who drop so many numbers beyond the ball. Nobody else really. How's The guile young like a lot but but frustrated because he doesn't have any kind of support either so you understand the frustrations and my boss continues to stutter? So then you selena messy do as as he did towards the end of this game at the moment come on the demand kind of thing and as we keep seeing unless we're talking about Leeann a messy we're talking about Basu a disappointing yet again on the other side of that same coin messy does these things and it is simply be breathtaking. Almost start of the decade. Two Thousand Eleven Champions League final at Wembley United Take Messia team. That was still a great team. Yes do not out of the. Es with a marvelous things with another great player in there this is the opposite of the decade and they operated the spectrum though team. The Australian LYSA major players are trying to replenish with the guys at shack mentioned but still still came to the same old building. The Moat Messy Suarez Gabby fail. If messy stays embarrasses should retain. The title shouldn't they. I don't know about that. I mean I think you know Real Madrid or another side. That can improve that that have been improving. Wouldn't take it as given you know. I agree with the boys. This was not a good performance. In the end it was as much about Messier's late goal was about ah those highly improbable torch Dagan saves they gotta get better. They got it. You know you can look at it your glass full guy you can say. Oh look it's okay. We have all these great players shortly. They can't play this poorly and then they'll improve later. And then maybe the improved to the point where you know messy can can take a day off or you can look at it the the other way and say this is not a good team. This is not a well coached team that it's not just a midfielder stop producing it's it's the fullbacks to grease mun it Suarez and and so at some point. They're going to falter. And whereas Real Madrid have another level to go to Madrid. Honestly I think they would have had another level to Jews. Well if they'd taken all three points from this game the way it looked like after that first half they might but they send me the goal that is brilliant as it was semi on it will be raging because if you know come into was ended the game at Glazebrook the playoffs they went bowling. Bullingdon the right hand side. They had numbers for will they had bacelona stretched an account. Remember who it was but they tried to play big hopeful diagonal from right to life. That never luke. Maye can it go. I'm bustle went on the counter-attack and then things that when people make decisions on and in a game for whatever reason tiredness or whatever the killing Athletico Madrid moment because they are a good site ball. We'll just not quite seeing them. I don't think jail as we know the probably come he throws a messy stats the last now love or you just put your Rinaldo find boys. Don't like to look at All season long goals in fifty games with nineteen assists so far this campaign eleven goals in fourteen games with eight assists. Is the balance door tomorrow in Franz coincidence or not shackling Craig all off. So uh-huh discussing messing twelve to one on to win according to the bookies but if I if I give you three wolves freeway thrive might use three words. I might use in probably half years before that question would be. I don't care correct but a lot of people do that's and I'm not one of them. Give it to messy. I'm not I'm traveling tomorrow. Yeah we saw a won't chasing around try to find the TV who's won the balance right. No shocker yeah I still believe Van Dyke show with him by not ought not let it go. He's the goat because he hasn't World Cup doesn't deserve the balance because he's rubbish over reach. What are we talking about? As I said last week I have always going to lean on pick on the player. Who's been the best in the team? That's won the most and in this circumstance it's Liverpool and I go Van Dyke obviously gabby would like your opinion as well. It depends on your criteria. We're now WANNA go go by the guys but go by the shock criteria then. It's a Liverpool player. Maybe it's not necessarily van. Dyke you could make a case for For Alison for money for a whole host of them. Maybe even for Alexander Arnold if you go oh by the WHO won the biggest international trophy. Guess what is your old Pal Christiana. What's your nations league? What's your criteria? I've you WANNA go by the best player in the world right. Now it's Lionel Messi you just give it to whatever is the best not who's achieve most things but who most people hand on heart think is the best player in the world and out of these three right now it's messy. It'd be more of this tomorrow. We'll be going live to the Boston Logan Lounge inside. So you'd be shocked today. Stephen Eilly that will be in the seeds to give us the views on the two thousand nine hundred Balan door. I don't watch the Premier League that Manchester United Taking on Aston Villa. uh-huh eleven minutes in from Jack Freely to make it one nil really was a fine finish just lower room. He knows exactly what he wants to do on. Does it perfectly just before the break against the run of clay. You have to say united to get the equaliser rashed with the effort off Tom. Heaton one one goes down known goal. A AH would have snuck in any way into the second off. You not take the lead thanks to win loss. Header throughout deep cross enough gets on the end of this ser- nice sport gets a little deflection Lindelof. Perfect again what about this marking for the United Defense. Tarot much face looks eight when it happened. Open live a young Williams played them on kraken friendly from a big sent off his will another week without a win then the only gonNA showers and finishes to and take a look at this for his win percentage it is extraordinarily low sin became man and just united coach in the Premier League. Twenty seven point. Three percents enough obvious. Well I'll tell you what good job he got new money bones. I remember those days from smiling. Ailing everyone's happy incorporating last year. Israel's it is not new manager bones otherwise I ten percent. It's not a surprise there's lots of deficiencies at United. Of course that has won the ownership to being the chief executive three breen the structure of the department the moment the playing staff and then lastly but not legally but not holy to blame as the manager. If you would would you pick up the phone this evening and ring policy. That's the problem as I said it last week is the longer the Hans and say we're going to nest direction. We're quite hoppy on weird of transfer windows coming up the managers out there that are free. E and I'm thinking about Portu- Tino Allegra and others are gonNA maybe walks are the germs and so I think eighteen eighteen should go out and try and get something on paper or an agreement with Portugal Jimmy. That difficult scene is available. Edible Manchester United is a massive chilled. If you want you go get and get it done. I absolutely but I think it was Julian on the show. When cheers I fired? There was some suggestion that he had a contract that he couldn't sign for Premier League club during the course of this season even if they would even if that close does exist I'm making contact and if I'm involved just united that board or as a Fan I am disappointed if my exact hasn't at least made contact reporter to he knew at this point to at least the possibilities a gap is there a scenario in which would could call Tina tonight. Yeah I mean as long as there's number there's no reason it couldn't call then you know joking aside and you can you look forward whether it's the summer whatever else it. It is possible that such clauses exist but often that can be mitigated with Pacino. Giving some of his of his severance back United wouldn't mind. Doing it would be a lot less than what it would have. Cost to get him out of his spurs contract. Initially but I think the the broader message here is social performing like what you expect social to perform with these players in other words a very average manager but beyond that. Let's not forget what happened. In the summer. Transfer window they had. It was also a two two draw at Cowal road between Norwich City and also. Of course the first game post unite. Emory the difference that Craig. I didn't fail now and there was never going to be really I mean Same Old Same Old. He made some changes. Some strange ones But they I still always going to be a threat off. Snow going forward with the players have gone particularly Obama young however the themselves soul open the scary and all the teams that play against recently whether the being teams are going to be fighting relegation or midtable Premier League teams and above are getting ten fifteen twenty plus Chinese good CIANCI's para game against them then another club that's really just sailing in the wind goes and then another club that has to find the top level manager to try and take them forward. Because you know there's no point saying well limbaugh it's GonNa take us to the end of the season possibly blend some big decisions to make great use that phrase new manager bounce wasn't evident. We'll say I think it speaks of the deficiencies of this team. MM-HMM I mean as much as you may hope for us now going forward. Thank goodness perf Obama Yan. You look at US defensively and still I mean just the lack of basics in boggles look and cantwell. Nobody is within touching distance as either them until they eight yards from goal emas soon as he plays built up through midfield and as a premium league team play football the highest level. You just can't do us basics you just kind of get away with awesome. I'm amazed that continue to try to do that. It was a volcano in this game. some UK pundits getting knickers in a twist of Gary Lineker. Gary I never complaining about this. Go being struck off. I can see Obama yangs penalty saving seeing Coachman as well from the Norwich plans. The relevancy all fat is that it was the Norwich plan to encroach that got the bowling played half off the letter of the law referee quarterback among scores It goes one one. Do you have a problem with this. Var Var has been a little strain on a lot frustration in some faucets. I saw how ever get correct as no is not one of them And clearly the law states if a player in Karachi's and then has a material effect by the bowl been cleared. Then Varas within its rights to Baxter and I I just I don't I don't have a problem with getting Craig's aches. Basically the whole premise of video assisted referees and technology in place in wrong. It seems strange vol get something something right is a Sassy fierce ray wagner. That's right does it quickly yet. We still have every reason. People have reason to complete. It's tough it is beyond me is is about as best player in all the games going to finish in Jerusalem late winner for less city. Put some three ahead of Manchester City Z. Eight back from Liverpool with that late win against Everton had visit controversy in this one as well in the go figure we're GONNA Lawrenson. Flag Goes Rozov. Obviously a play on in show scores Vortex says no actually the let's say strike. Its own side. The goal is given well awesome awesome. Former he has on site. It's a really tight. Call onsite to that as technology and the riff on the free doing their job. One hundred percent great. What did it gave sexy achievements in great form and the team cautious to chasing Liverpool? Give them a hugely important three point by getting in a decision correct. So where's the issue. Where's the game trying to buy? The other side is the assistant referee that instinct. They shouldn't yeah. I wouldn't cost to get a lot because the instinct Fulham over the years is to put the flag up so it's difficult to however here. We have an excellent goal right in the death and injury time that has taken a team onto three points and the technology has got absolutely spot on and yet he's ruining the game I it's not a job you live in the UK. You Hate Var absolutely loathe it but Craig what about frame rates what. It can't be sure that you get it. It's all nonsense. Reality is being an assistant in those calls is really really difficult. He put his flag up. He could've kept this down. He has to make a call in no time. Flat and this is why. VR was introduced and these are objective decisions and and he got correct. And you know all the time angry over this when they talk about the armpit or whatever else because frankly they don't know the rules rules that have been around since two thousand and five that you can score with any part of your body thankfully this one was even clear and I think we got the right decision. The right outcome a bonus round of league matches this week a full. Oh program midweek at all. Saw Palestine's bullet Bernie against manage to see. Then you've got the likes of Manchester United and Spurs less applying to what for and the Merseyside Merseyside Darby the big one. Isn't it on Wednesday. Inflatable noodle man is constant. undulated joining entices people to look at me. Look at me. He's stylist and brainless a literal head. Curiously however inflatable noodle man when hearing gyco Geico not only saves people money has an award winning hand that makes it easy to manage. What policy he knows you should switch because yes to the GEICO is a no brainer? I'm not asking inflatable. Middleman castle unpredictable us in Italy. A Finnish you to swallow swallow to you've taken leave through a new cheetah flakes. It affects a brilliant. Go from Boga though making it. One one Christiana renown to get an equaliser live from the penalty spot after Caputo. Put the visitors ahead. It was a less than convincing performance and the defending champions Gab. Strong throwing you the whole bunch of things I think are wrong with this and obviously I one shot to this kid. He's a former injured youth player. He's chucked in there is a third goalkeeper and he came out afterwards. He said his legs were shaking throughout the game but he certainly came up big. They did create the chances but guys. This has been happening all season. They've been playing badly just in other games. Something happened. We saw it against something only happens at the end and they go and get the result. This time it didn't happen At the back are a horror show with delake and and BEF- on but you can say those are individual mistakes. I midfield doesn't support the strikers while enough I think he's John Orlando's going through a really really tough patch and I I think it'd be Bala and string lesser extent are keeping him going up front but there's a lot more that needs to be done here. Let's focus just look more showy on Rinaldo season so far as seven goals in sixteen games three of them from the penalty spot so just four from open. Play what what's wrong with him. He's had a physical issue. I think that's pretty evident I think Saudi struggling to find the right role for Kim. I think he likes to start wide and come inside and and there's A. There's a growing feeling that you know. Maybe you should be doing that anymore. Maybe you're not sprightly enough to do that. Maybe don't be your man off enough to do that. Maybe you can outrun fullbacks way used to. Maybe you should play centrally and play centrally more often. Because you know you can still. You're still a tremendous finisher. One of the very very best in the world and you can still find that space. You could probably outrun a lot of senator central defenders as well For whatever reason that hasn't clicked that hasn't happened happened and also if you move side you have an issue with Dwayne so I'm sure he can. He can go and break through this. He's come back before reached his level again again. But I also wonder whether they shouldn't have a rethink about what the best way to use them. Maybe maybe whether you two up front I on a more regular basis like a genuine upfront and pretend to upfront. Like they've had of late I. It's a tough one and it's something that I I think he's got to get himself out of intimate the most of you've dropping points a two one victory for them. Put some top of the table counting to push you all the way this season. Listen I think you can win it. I'm not saying necessarily will win it but there's no question that inter are right up there. We'll see what happens. I I Champions League if they get knocked out. It could be a blessing in disguise. But it's really impressive. How they're doing remember nobody knows? CNC see that's basically they're starting midfield out right now and he's too loud and Lukaku have developed a tremendous partnership ship. And I think it's also very difficult for a lot of teams to to line up against them because simply put very few teams Very few of the top teams anyway. Play to upfront. And and their movements are getting more synchronized and they really developing an incredible chemistry and both are prolific. And at the same time unselfish. They love setting up. Their teammates makes as much as I love scoring. Meanwhile it's eight games now without a win for Napoli. They lost two one at home against Bologna. I'll tell you won't columbine philosophy wasn't pulling any punches. After the game saying usually the coach takes responsibility. The players needs to feel responsible to. I'll try to find the solution the same and if they can help me with that I'll try to find it myself. I'll take most responsibility but not everything. The fat remains. We need the plans to do uh-huh more when they are on the failed Gab. One of mess this is. It's it's an absolute massive. You know when you think about the fact that it's comes uh-huh just a couple of days after that performance at Anfield where they they they go there and you know they lead for much of the game. End Up sharing the spoils guaranteeing being a place in the next round or virtually guaranteeing place. You know. Now I come back to this. I think. One of the issues with Enchilada years that he's he's rotated at a lot again drops mertens and hone for this one I don't think the squad necessarily adapt well to that. I I think what he talks about others taking responsibilities definitely talking about the players but I think he's also hinting of course at the club in the president and did the whole story about the contracts and the fines that that's got to be playing on the back of the players minds as well but at the same time. This is Dottie. He's a guy. It doesn't make excuses. Who owns up and says it's my job? That's why I get paid the big money. I gotTa try to fix it and I'll do my best to fix it Sirius.

How can the so-called Competitive League the Premier League the finished in November or? Sorry House has the so-called Most Competitive League primarily finishing. They've emden is it. I know quite Pillar eight clean of last Who they play over the Christmas period right folks that pokes out? Maybe the boxing day game. So you know if Lester can walk afford her Bartman the League which is the next game and if they beat Liverpool five points right me into making a trekkie from sales. You've still chunting along so I wouldn't say it's over the ship beginning to censor anyway you'll be the less the game. Let's let's not allow no. Okay we'll be there but it's going to turn it out tomorrow to let go there. Missile secretive secretive things. I have no idea what you're talking about shocker and flake period GOB GOB savers. It's far from over. We've figured ov our how they still play city away they gotta play they've got to play Leicester. There's a lot of things that can go wrong. It's only early. It's only December. If you'RE GONNA call heard you say that that it was over he would not be happy with you. I'm sure we've said a lot worse things it's about living in the show. Then they they won. The League is slow out of his mind is a goalkeeping tasks Dagon. Yes yogi love. You has been a better goalkeeper Manno for quite some time as phone ruin. His legacy. No opens leg as long as you still playing Polo Park. And so we're talking that'd be legacy cannot be ruined connaught connaught sedan ruined. Isn't they say no we do I think so. No I didn't Jordan No. No I'm telling you I've checked you've checked survey says Texas does legacy. It did no harm. Take no harm no checked your Italian who phone. He's not ruining his legacy. But I think this whole thing is a little hokey rate. So he was a senator man he went back to you. Vent is stated ideas that you want to set the appearance record and he wants to do it at you and basically said Yeah. Well you know you'll play eight ten twelve gains however many you need go and set the record. If you shouldn't be a Yuli. Shouldn't be Uber even number two. I'm sure there's lots of clubs and city odd that he could have gone to and he could have except the record day or he might already have the record As of right now this is what doesn't add up to me. If you care about director you care about the record I if you care about not being a UV then the best keeper should play regularly. You know. You shouldn't work out a deal or the club. Shouldn't feel like they have to give you a certain number of with appearances. I'd much rather see before play weekend. We count you know then to have them come onto the cameos just so he can get closer to the to the record sitting in area for wisden walls. Yeah yes yes it's not ruining is a classic case of just try hang on too long would Benitez Craig Astle sold offensive votes. Possibly yeah. I'm in some of these pleasant experience and he's not he's not running wouldn't solve them all nobile solve them all all but tell them they might be able to be a best picture. There wouldn't rule out you know by the way they want to go and he'd be infested assistance from the tickle Gab weight off so would you bring up the word Arsenal and structure sure. In in the same sentence I think back to Stewart Robson going on about arts and vendors lock of defensive structure and given that Freddie Ljungberg works for his formative years Arsenal under arson Vangere with Stuart Robson Shar shouting about the lack of a defensive structure. I don't know I just don't have a great feeling about this Defensively if Stewart is right so it's just that it's the word defensive structure Stuart Robson arson vangere altogether. Robots Brings Back Memories. Overhaul lead over fun. This he could only do across from the training ground. Because he's bonding facetime and he wouldn't be dressed Make everyone crying wearing quite this is remains. Yeah I don't know he wants to put over the top of his head in the wrong say did that may look a little anyway. Awesome Overhaul Hall of House and syrups and copied it. Because he's got restraining order is not allowed a quote of male of grab. Somebody's blowing their own trumpet. I wanted to ask you guys. Friend and Rojas should replace emory pass law fats. Look who's laughing now. Most sought after manager in Europe. It says it's so so basically Brendan's calling themselves eight and ten the head manager. It's been a good manager for a long time I I don't remember laughing at the Pierre. I don't even remember them being linked with off the last Gab. Any gets tomorrow in. He's second in the table with Lester. Okay what good would it do for him to walk out unless there now and go to arsenal where you may have an impact next season. I don't WanNa keep going Berg. They hope to keep Bloomberg until the summer If you get less during the top four and then you start thinking about arsenal. Then you won't be seen as a Judas walking out of Leicester and be you. Can you can have a fresh start at Arsenal. After you've achieved something like something pretty incredible I think like getting Lester into the top. Four and you might even want to stay at Leicester Mr so now. Let's take your time. He's doing great. Why does he have to leave in mid-season just because somebody wants tweeted about joining there's your man I I don't I don't follow? It doesn't make sense because he will work with at the moment however however I don't think the Jewish thing would bother them a few celtic funds. He was going for the treble treble. Celtic walked out to the job I I don't enjoy some Celtic funds. Though they hate more hamill you I think he's I think he's just a nose ahead to the moment really. Yeah Yeah I'm not trying to be Craig. I think you all the time. I think it'd be. I think definitely there. I was front running until he walked out to modest Craig list but I'll find a way to back and at number one. How smuggled August got feeling right now after predicting that so swallow a home could be a potential banana? Skin evinces absolute account as well. I Oh yeah whatever you say no I did on the show I but there is a story behind behind swallow and you have had in the past certain links and because there's a lot of very cynical fans in stadia they just assumed it's swallow will always rollover from you on command and I'm really glad that he didn't do that in this game but I think they should shut a a a Lotta people up. There's a whole bunch of people including some people you guys know who started listening to giggling and making little jokes you know once they got the penalty and stuff like that but they knapman swallow next thing you see outside the confines of their studio. Yes I think it might be snowing. Oh No it's definitely snowing coming through so I've got one of those doorbells cameron and I can say spying on your the half definitely not you can see how interesting this shows that you'll sit and look adorable while we'll talk. Yes pretty much thanks. You'll find me rights feeling while he's not trump. Oh yes always I travel no. I'm traveling tomorrow night. Okay from Boston Logan and wait and wait in England. I'm going if it will get you. FORGOT EAGLE FANS HAVE THE RIGHT TO BOO team Coast Guard for Big Eagles Fan after today's horrible defensive display in. Today's swipe today guy when he goes to. They were absolutely horrendous. They're playing the Miami Dolphins or basically a big pile of turds In terms of ability. But you know what they played. They play the eagles off the park to the dolphins and goalkeeper quarterback named Fitz. Patrick who's like forty five years old and has a big beard went to Harvard where they don't even give athletic scholarships and he went and he surgically picked the eagles apart Carson Wentz was bad again. By the way here's a lesson for granted shock Carson. Wentz came out like a month ago after being booed by his own fans and and he said you know what if I play their right to boomy. I wish some fuller's who get show uncomfortable about this when people boo them when they're old fans bootham to them that you have to support your team stuff now you don't perform. They got a right to boo and they deserve all the boobs that they get at least. They're men man enough they come out and say we stink boo us. Well it's the other team the jets the jets lost in their positions around the Bengals bengals. Yeah they lost the. It's not lose against dolphins Israel. Yes yes oh yes. So does that mean the jets. We'll get the number one pick now. Not Okay Eh. Just talk very them. They suck well they do every time you ask him. Since I've been here we'll the eagles out of the question. It requires the cowboys where also horrible and have a horrible owner. Her and at a horrible coach requires them to lose a whole bunch of games including the big head-to-head meeting somebody from the NFC east has to go and because because the redskins and the giants are even worse it comes down to whoever stinks less out of the cowboys and Eagles. And maybe they'll have a shot at if the cowboys. Keep losing if the cowboys also lose but yeah it's not good. It's not good all around well. Enjoyable travels gentleman and anyone critical shack on. That's travels be. Someone was Gordon. Holidays work on Morgan. Are you cover with. I'm GONNA cap reflate. Normally pocket camera out of Peterson with you. Put us on me on and off.

Football Postcast: Premier League Week 25 | Man City v Arsenal | Weekend Football Tipping

"Follow party power on Snapchat. The username is the Patty power, and we promised that wouldn't be any boring. Snaps about gigs. The weather all the gym. Hello. And welcome to the racing post. Full postcards on claiming Gainesville presenting juicy today in the studio racing post colleagues Liam Flynn and Dan chose while on the line from our sponsors potty power. We've got EMMY Kafe. It's going to be a busy show. Lots of live games has also been a full round of Premier League action emit week as well. We'll review as Paul of these six questions, and for those of not followed it before each of the skit two questions each and then they get to answer a question that they wished they would have been all so limb I'll start with us Liverpool extended their lead the top of the Premier League over the mid week. However, some people suggested that they didn't actually do enough in that draw with LeicesteR. So where do you stand there who wins the primarily title? I've said for right from the beginning Liverpool. I don't think I'm going to stick with that. Still both Liverpool. Manchester City will both pre pour mid week. I think we can agree but Liverpool got the result of their game. I think Manchester City having gone one up early against against Newcastle effing as a little bit of complacency and arrogance is slipped in which to be fair is quite uncaracteristic of a pep Guardiola team. But if they continued show that for out the season, and they they could Searcy struggle against struggle to catch Liverpool. I think yeah. Live out their best against LeicesteR. But they still go point. And it's still a reasonable healthy lead. Imagine city of some crunch games coming up on the on the horizon and not really determine whether they end up finishing the season. Emmy have you got some process, please on the primarily outright. Yep. We're Liverpool for nine months city ninety five Spurs forty two one. Okay. I'll stick with you. We team is it you support. We're getting. Monday night is nine yards. It so Liverpool been criticized impulse for only sweeping one end of the pitch in terms of clearing. The is from that game against LeicesteR on Wednesday as a Manchester United fan, where do you stand? There was this one of the most disgraceful things you seen in Premier League history. Oh, does he go down to be able to talk? All so it so being overplayed at the moment. No. It's it's. I'd see as more gamesmanship. But it's interesting because like this Liverpool team in general pretty likeable team on they're actually one of the most disciplined teams in the league and eighteen yellow cards the season. And let's by far the low second the early cards and just it's almost as a little bit at carpet. Okay. I'll Kayla are. So some people into its code absolutely disgraceful. So in terms of the champions leagues or places dime. We saw taught them get light win Chelsea four nil defeat of former managers, you know, it didn't win also just scrape to victory. So asking you the question. Yeah. Which two teams are going to miss out on the Champions League. This season are in terms of the toy when you wrote are still think. Tough decide at the moment off the show. Hope I'll still think they're gonna they're gonna make off think the going signing. Just we'll give him an extra go free at the moment. He's probably still shuttling in into to the the start applying the Premier League. So an offer. See that performance was was really the steady shoes. We've Joe Joe gain your there. Rely a lot on him. And I would say it's all in. But I still think that they can go a little bit more sensitively. A look man, you know, that was about a great run on the on the social of the big three points. I dropped against Burnley. I have a tough time still to come on the fixture this, you know, it as well. An all snow. They results watching them recently. I watched him in the Manche cop gyn, very shaky in that match and the college game as well. And then let's the shot count home to college. Well, yeah. I mean that would really concern me. They've of the issues that we will know about injuries. But then not actually look in that fluid at the moment guy before which is strength for always known as strength. So I would still stage two shows even though that just dropped out and so forth. I think it'll be a few people look into Tyco Chelsea in that soap for market off like result for new defeat boom of some process. Plays homes finishing. That's for sure. Spurs one to seven Chelsea forty six. My days arsenal. Twenty one time five hundred twenty bar. Okay. Okay. Liam stick with Chelsea. They got the heavyweight clash in some of the F I count that. They're against Manchester. United through teams all vying for one of those Champions League sponsor who do you fund seats? Go frou to the cool Fong's fake up out in them. So well, originally, I did think man you had quite a good show the Cup. I'd fancy Chelsea to progressiveness game. I think we've seen in the past. When Chelsea's Lee form is perhaps dip slightly they've gone compensated for that with good Cup performances wherever that being Europe or domestically Manchester. United think for me that being over hypes of CD initial run of wins. All they're gonna socials against fairly mediocre sides against Tottenham. They weren't particularly impressive either. You know, they didn't really deserve to win that game the hair kind of kept them in that. And and then of course against Burnley. Only just salvaged a point. And I think they're still very rule. I think there's still issues at the back there and. Yeah, Chelsea I think have go really good challenge to have run at the FA Cup this season the lie. Calm believe how much love there is chosen the shooting. And if you up to qualify yet. Forty five Chelsea and evens may night. It's I just just work pointing out on that game that week nine either say ESPN on Tuesday, and which shows your bang away and mumble -ursday, so the gaming burnish edulis bell Saturday is a good chance of the review go to Sunday, but we would have an edge there in terms, the rats K K. I'll stick with you. Now. Mints rice to finish seven from show. Anybody wants to but in terms of the Europa league, it could actually be a qualification spot assuming that one of Chelsea own Manchester. Bo finishing the top seats, which are in you highly likely, I'll just run through the table. And then you can maybe give us European who you think will finish seven. So we go wolves them for five points is Everton on for free. What for them boom of on forty three Lester on for eat. So a waste time own I e one so I'm asking you who will finish best to the rest. I think wolves are quotable arrest. This is in the Lee, obviously, the the it's well documented segregated fielders with nervous inyo what just as in like they they obsolete dominated westbound there during the week. It was like my time points to expect to goes an on his room for improvements with the Jaguars Wilding mostly just touching for. No. They get himself Jimenez, firing that'd be hard to stop a very strong wingback positions. But Marty Donny. It pretty solid defensively as well. So only will about me weaknesses resume, y'all got warm K, and Donald I'll finish with you. We we're gonna hit in the home straight. Now. January be out the way off the today. So one team to follow please for the rest of the season. I'm gonna give you the league too. So I'm going to I'm going to drop down crew a annoy or eleven fin league. So they're six points out saw the playoffs an thirty three to one to go out there. Also that find very very well. What am I three wins in a row two thousand been against teams sought wanna wanna white? So I'm Kate don's home to coach STA. And there's been a distinction proven save Chris experienced striker since I put him out from he's been in and out the solder, the he's running the Saudis five goals, and he's lost seven games. And it's also helping some of their talented youngsters get bit more Spicer, probably lots of Charlie Kerr, Colleen leader applying lot better as well. And cruise. Performances y y stronger and I were in the season when they were very very low on on the shot stats early in the season. Now, they're looking very very good. The GOP isn't a great deal where we would gain still to go sixteen games crew got left. I'll just think three one for a team going seriously. The right way is overpriced. Okay. Well, they were mainly such coal oil on Saturdays from seeming the playoffs. You know, they're gonna be could get closer still. Okay. Liam off the questions that you weren't always. Which one would you like to take probably the best of the rest and all that? She agree. I think I think he could be a quiet toss. We'd Lester another further down at the moment. But you know, FOX is they've they've impressed against the biggest sizes season. And if they can tell you that mentality they show big gains when you'll do apply. Well, that's what that's what it depends on overseas. A very onset since situations around in cloud, you'll still and whether or not he's dead. I mean that could have a massive impact on the rice for seven because it is. Think wolves will just pip them to think they've got more quality in the final furthest season, great counterattacking football. And if they can improve their form Mullen nukes, I think they've been slightly better away from home from what I've seen. They can improve their full Mullen you make up fortress than they can nail on that. They will. Well, we sing Burnley struggle with the early stall. And you know, many managers probably don't want to be in the euro for each if he knew would actually relish that opportunity. I think he would. And I think they probably got they do have the death to deal with that certainly going forwards and United of Oesterreich speedy wingers that they can use. And yeah, I think that probably more so than most than Lester who's league ambitions in next season. Paps Lester might look into knock on top six door. Don't I wear as wolves might be content with of? Yeah. Nylon seven five spot next season and really giving the euro politico. So I think yeah, we'll to finish seventh of the season. Which question would you like to take primarily? Title dismissed. Liverpool. Like there's been a clear dip in form lately. Obviously lot paid reasonably well the way to city when losing to one, but I watched some debris game they were good one L. There were very very lucky against Mr. policy. Paul the obviously the mistake. This Baroni was all an. Deflections to two deflections leading to goals and policies got something there and again last night like they had been eleven daybreak between the the policy game on the nineteenth of January. And then paymaster last night was very disappointed with them always for being didn't starch and opening. Doesn't start there isn't that much forward passing the midfields, but the the look two times because stroking for movement and a bit just one inspired which you wouldn't expect given the time off that I saw in this too. So in this to us to some to watch them in the weeks coming on. I just on that. Then do you think this is then being white down by nerves or is it a maybe a I know you said about the bright is it fatigue maybe from the front players justify maybe they would just over achieving the stop. I saw it was second lowest ex g home last night. The only ever Tom was man city. So clearly Warrington's what what what you putting it down to. Zinc. There's there's an element of over cheating earlier in the season. I just think is what the defensive injuries a caught up with them. Joe Gomez was the best of that maybe five or six the league when he went when he was this year, great partnership on dyke amount of very very shaky less on it. Alexander on injury husband outs. Then interesting midfields. Sabino does apply to the district team desolate against on demand city away games. Well, you came on there were a lot lot better. But more for passing lot more ten phone day. I think last night the finale Manabe as an appeal to the REEs. I I mean, I suppose little problems of relatives that I'll five points clear, they would have settled for that going into February dam which question would you let same one and I'm gonna make similar points 'em. It's just made. Actually, I think overpriced. He's kinda strange emit week. You can say materially gained two point Liverpool on Manchester City, and there's another game out that way, but I'll just I'll be more worried about. So I that showing the nerves and the lack of intensity that live poor shine at the moment. And then it's so I'd say you lost that game to complacency. I think it's far easier that they were complacency than as if you get nervous in January already. And we know there's been a long songs as Liverpool won the league is a huge huge thing. I think he's gonna affects them more and more of the season goes on the lack of intensities that trend we've seen before club sides as well with their affective nece and the pace of their play has fight is going on on this could be happening again. And there's a tough Iran a Wii games coming out. I mean, the the west. Time out four what am I going on now? But it is a tricky ground the go-to, then the next month. Just, you know, sit in the league then Evanston away which is dog. He's always tough. And on the other thing dish afar into the mix as well that the Champions League round of sixteen Liverpool's against bomb units. Who legs they're going to be a lot more. Take a lot more out of him the Manchester City's too much against Xiao cost. So I'm just throwing in the just feel okay failed in that city. I would rather be on name always process than oh middle. Okay. Well, it is actually in terms of the Saturday fixture. There is an opportunity to go above Manchester City. I mean, we we haven't really discussed them in terms of the tall rice. Maybe we can do that now because they're the only subsidy game against new call. So can we have some prices pleased, and you'll view on top moving terms off the time to raising them. Maybe a prediction for this game. The prices Fisk game or two to five bought them. Grow up, very new pass late lawn. And I think it's hard to be positive because Spurs showing the consistency. That will. That would lead the Pipo obviously arc things injury. And just like, they're it's kind of as we saw against Wofford having been pretty huge effort to win these days. Nothing's going community at the moment. I think the squad is a bear for the black bar in this game can see. I can see new custody spas, the problems up until halftime. It'd be pretty obvious the way you also set off this respect pump them and. I got the prices their pop under John smitty, eight to eleven forty five. That's that's probably what playing Spurs. These could run down force out of foreigners. When light on east. The first off you gossip should be competitive on leeann worship, your best bet for this game go and taught him and both teams to school thing that wanted when we huge confidence base for them. And having keep lines absent and son coming back is oversee a massive boost as well. But I said, let's say you call them get on the school. She with with the exception of defeat to Liverpool and eventually made themselves quite tough to be against top six is the string of games against him earlier in the season marginal two one defeats to Chelsea city. And also during that period scored nine goals in their last four think Ron Rondon still looks like a dangerous dangerous player in the final third. And of course, his new potential new addition big allowing their own just outside so new creative for them and specify conceded in each of their last five games. So. I think you taught me winning both teams to score I suppose we what for the win one of the few that were MC spaces on undefeated fouls. And when we talk to them. Definitely deserves to win even though it came late. But agreed that it was a really big f-. An if they add the clause of Canaan Ali probably wouldn't have needed to put so much into get that victory from the game. Couple of starts to throw out. You knew call so lost on their last eight visits to Wembley, nor happy hunting ground for them. And in terms of the drawer Tottenham, definitely do one in the primarily every quarter record of boats, and then that's eight matches without sharing the spoils. I don't feel could be back in them in this game a little bit solid woozy. And even though he scored, Dan. What's your best bet y'all? I'm gonna go for the tour actually just because they do. You know, I'll just think what you've just said there about the F Sposa into the guy. We've out kind of the you you're showing a wing behind Sella Bill, and you back he's very very very difficult. The cumulation of fatigue was that was there ought suppose gaming game in January. I mean, most that is I mean, he could take the try. I'm out most that I was a lot insights to to get go out and some than you wanted to play him for ninety minutes reports they finish the game with a bit of crime as well. He's partic-. You know, saying, you know, you may start the weekend. He may know, you know, they staging. I'm just throwing money. Free week. And he's going to have to look in China, and that kind of thing, but the moment ever feed is just to the limit we Spurs and new call you have had a couple of great wins. You know, the college if we really good win as well as free nail. And then the match went on sop signing, a, you know, a break in that transfer record as well that's gonna just even if it takes a while to settle down. It's going to give them a little bit of a booster club as a whole one. The Benny does say seems out quite well defensively in these games are just think draws a little bit over price than Spurs who show off long-stalled at midfield. Does. Impression on me emit feel right? She I certainly wouldn't be back in them in this game. Look a little bit show to me. We'll be back with more after this success ain't turned its board. That's why Poti power we paid the big bucks for the best technology in the world to develop our new fastest ever app. Download the new app in the app store or place Donau eighteen plus begun to welcome back to the race in post football post cost. Now, we're going to crackle with the non live free PM. They she's very quick fire on says, please gents we'll start going older. So we'll go Emmett then Liam then done chose. I mean, if you can lead off with the prices, and then you'd say it's Bryson versus what furred? Sixty four drill. One ten Wofford nine to five. Take a chance here on what nine to five. I think that Fulham defeat could be quite damaging for Brighton. They base lot of their game and credit being solid defensively with Shane Duffy in and and Louis don't get centre-half and like they were kind of arguing towards the end of the game. And like the. Fulham these swamped him that second half I feel that possibly could linger over into this game Wofford have been good away from home old all season. So I'd Johnston here. Bryson five Brian seven league wins have come at the season. They do make themselves difficult to be home. And I think what we're talking about affects our mid week those seriously demoralizing defeat, and I think they've will say good first team players, but they're lacking in terms of quality of the bench. I think lack of score death may start to catch up with them. And I've conceded in five or six games. If you go for the drawer got the full house, and I walked for for me, the two defeats in the last eleven in all competitions is your against Shoshin Spurs and have been pretty good form for a long time last couple of performances, Burnley home Sposa, why not not been up to us standards. A lot of that sound. So after Laudi coy been injured. He's expected corden so heavy Grazia to be back at the weekend massive boost what for Brian on down off to the Fulham going what for for me? I think not decor in remote, be January. All ISIS is in charge the food see a move away. Obviously by Saturday will will know every he's in or out. Burnley versus Southampton. Emma. Burnley six to four draw ninth four and Saddam to nine to five at burnt, even Jillian proved recently like you saw in the main Ida game. Jack cork put a high press on on Pereira won the ball. And they scored off there's been obviously the play to front as well. Obviously, I think as well, Tom Heaton, coming in's. But a huge difference heart wasn't that bad. But I don't think he was excelling Heaton is so Bernie acuity improved. But I I still think they're pretty little short to win here. So I'd Plum for the drought nine to four like both decides that kind of similar enough level. I think could saving hill older one all here. I think both teams myself for a drawer and eat their way around trouble. I mean, if I was going for B cell phones and DNB Liam he'll best back under two point five goes thing. These two sides scored fifty one goals between them combined in the Premier League this season. And now that it's a little bit of breathing space between them and the Boston free. I think they could both be looking to void defeat more than going for the win and fairly know could make for fairly conservative a conservative. So I think yeah. Under two point five goals steam bending Southampton bit of down room both teams this season. What was your best here? Southbound some familiar, I think since hasn't hustles come in performances. I'm results of improved a lot on openly on a good run as well. I'll just fill that press. They played at mentioned, you know, I t's would've took typing a little out of that same year. I think the short turnaround be more against them than against Southampton. Replay more present possession by sky. I'll just think there there are saw it as well. And an I'll tighten them as outsiders. Okay. Well, how about an extra days rest than than Chelsea Notts shorts on Chelsea got back from boom of given that sorry, I'm locked in the dressing room for a long time afterwards. Just how show Chelsea to bounce back with a Victorian? What's your best back? It. Pretty sure it's one six just seethed draw six one holders feels fourteen to one. I definitely take a Johnson odors feel plus two year seven days. Like holders field, even though obviously they've really struggled this season in the last ten games. They've only been beaten my more than one goal three times two of those by United city. I think Jessie are could've. Jesse short on confidence. Here struggling for goals. And also and most importantly for Huddersfield are Moi's back. He came back from injury during the week and apparently play quite well, the last thirty five minutes, I think I think he's by Steffi their best player. I expect a Middle Eastern improve them. Liam honest food looks a little bit unlucky against ever since we've set that more than once this season. What's your best bet? There's two issues going forward to them so many Chelsea to win two new these Altea sides stronger at about going foods. But yeah, I think Chelsea see before are still are still believe. Sorry. I think is set up as a more defensive defensive mining cutch. I I think I think Chelsea can win this to know we'll see how does filled up Steve Mooney as goal or things on the second of January or something that was the only go strike. Go from a striker off season taught goalscorers montage Wilkinson at the back calling ground. Looks like potentially a good song. If the future based we're going to make an immediate impact in the Premier League. Chelsea lost. Just once a home this season in league sing girl in tighter from for Chila show this on the right one. I caught light low tell you let them Russia Vespas here. I'm gonna go comfortable Choshi win show C three. Now. Just just think that this go up here respond after performance Bomer for thing. If there's a game you're going to handpick to get back on track. I mean, they see how does field played against gets head men for of at least in amount of most of the second off the guy gets Davidson still crate very very little against an Evans. So I go on the guy, you know, in very very poor form. So this is much tougher for how does feel comfortable Chelsea win for me. K A M. A Crystal Palace a wolf resolve lifts crystal policy gains, Fulham, what's the prices and your tit for the game your policy even draw twenty three to ten full of eleven. How much is the policy change was all Haji? You know, what what you were before? Five to six four to five. Earlier in the season. I it's pretty less sonar early in the season. I was told to one of our pricing traders who said that Saja made the most difference to a teams price of any player in the league. And I think like you saw maybe against homes and earlier in the season. They were like I think evens eleven to ten and drifted out like two point five two point six when when I was real dash go into this game. Policies even the draw twenty three to ten and full of eleven to four Palestinian abysmal at home. This this year. They're only scored six goals at home and conceited. Evan. Fulham it into the Brighton game with the the worst defensive record in Europe. I think they could see defeat fifty three goals this season. So the Bush would sigh and pals poor home form expert flew into behind confidence after the win against Brighton. Seemed like a real morale boosting win an obviously Ryan Baba's been very impressive since since he signs. I can't see pilots keeping Fulham Irish. So like Fulham here double chances to a to eleven. I'm actually going to go Crystal Palace. I I know that for L has season hasn't been particularly good oversee Cup win over Tottenham would have been huge boost that free winds to new in their last five as we said Fulham the back up so shocking fifty three goals conceded. They could perhaps be a little bit drained from that mid week against parts. And so yeah, I'm gonna get Crystal Palace. Desalting vote fear. Now Fulham familiar, I've just take Fulham on the process. So in the game of fleet in the markets moves as much as as it might be should've done a fancy full mesh Adam down as a as a before mid week games. Just fell. I mean, they got an extra day as well. So that that will always like that in when you got me two weeks a weekend have been improving Mitchell issues, you know, he's going to eat such a threat at the moment airy Lee fallen pretty good on the deck as well. For the confidence. Now's a half a palace just meets a great. So I'm for Fulham's ago there on a big incentive the six points beyond palace win. This guy move on it's three points. That's a huge incentive for Fulham. Okay. Yeah. I mean, it's interesting crystal policy. Nobody being spoken about in the relegation. So it was circles by a defeat would certainly direct them. Back into EMMY Everson against wolves. We're talking about the best of the rest market earlier on this will probably affect that. So of race for seventh fail prices in the best bat, please. Thirteen to ten dro- nine to four and wolves eleven to five. I think wolves are overpriced here. Lucas Daniel for we'll we'll be wit suspension. Idrissa gay may play. But this this chancy may leave. And if he doesn't I'm not sure it's very morning to be great. I think he's he's desperate for moved to PS g Andina and and gave to ever since best performers this year. I think I just watching every day. You couldn't be impressed with them. They seem to be losing their discipline abyss. They've had a fifteen yellows and one red and the last five last five games. I enter to shore share. I think we'll we'll should be closer to thirteen date seven two four. I like wolves. Say eleven to five can see wolves. What about you? First of all is Marco silver all without. I mean overseas. No Pena, particularly good season for him Everton. This season is always ask questions of a manager. Come they make that step up from a club where there's not much expectation took LA Evanston, where we see continuous expectation being fulfilled. I think perhaps if you if he's given a little bit longer there than he could have an impact. But it depends on still right? I still write him as a coach just think it's one of those projects is going to take time out to interrupt. You. Both teams to score in this one wolves wolves away. They are in the league because I play without fear away from Moline, Illinois and goals, and they lost three games you go Shota and human as being particularly prolific in those said fixtures. Everton think being top heavy so I- decision ship. More goals in Newcastle and Crystal Palace's season, obviously, they've got Charlotte's in in in the final and he carries a gopher it. So I think both teams to school. I think that one of these teams. Often play better away in the do it. How yet? Yes. In the week against west time west I'm starting to play. But which was we're very very impressive. We talked earlier in the season about lack of gopher actually row him. And as he's looking good at the moment. He's finishing ready. Well, showing good movement great technique in front. Go on Evanston. A scrappy one near win. How does filled when whenever I watch him play lightly that doesn't seem to be a great daily cohesion. They don't get the back as well wolf somebody will die, and then it's the evening fixture that the live one it's called if against boom of own bts four, and it was the process for this one Cardiff two one the draw twenty three to ten the format. Five Donald come to you first. Funds. Anything tricky one this. I'm gonna die for Cardiff to win. A just think boomer if I'm not I'm not denigrate in that win against Chelsea they made a big effort into. It sounds crazy. When teams just one four nil, but it did put out the poor a lot of effort in that game the sugar turn around think. Again, I've had a less than called if you know if before the weekend, and it'd be all different questions at call. If caught it very rextall. They seem to have the the tragedy tragedy with Emiliano Salah seems to have galvanized them in a while I'll show which to go there and put that performance and where they lost to win the shot count the Mertz. You gotta give him credit for that. They're also strong at home five four to five league league wins have come home boomer for why is well go to poor away record seven away defeats in a row at the moment. So I would just think it's a big opportunity to call us to get a win. Okay. Boom. If in this one night, she think they tend to corner really we'll see we'll know difficult run. And then I followed up to new win against west. Resolve against Chelsea which David Brooks. Josh king. No distinct incredible in that game really deserved to get free points in that one. So say it's a difficult time for called if at the moment with the with the salaries coupled with the fat that set to just a point from relegation games against relegation rivals against field in Utah. So an an oversee looked looked good against arsenal. But didn't get the result combination of all those factors. I think could drain them for this game. They might look to sit back home in this one near Warnock always looks to make it difficult for for teams. But Boma through the confidence of the moment on the front foot players, but Jeff king. They can unlock hard if and and get the win. Okay. Let looks like Colin Wilson's out for a couple of weeks and we'll wash what's your in this world. Mm-hmm. Over two and a half goals here currently attend to eleven it's clicked in aid of born months. Eleven away league games at board with conceded. The second most league goes away from home of any team league. And as a downside Carter played very well against against arsenal. At the Emirates like spectrum to a few chances here on obviously, we know PO potent born with aren't attack as well. We'll be back with more live football. After this. Check out his rewards stamp simply place five beds of ten pounds or more across any sports in a week and you'll get a free ten pound pet then next week teens. He's plan eighty plus began to went to Hello. And welcome to the race imposed football, postcards, on Mark Langdon? Joining me in the studio racing postal colleagues limb Flynn and dunk kills and on the line from us moments as Punti power. It's emmett's. Okay. Th there's a a real good super Sunday on scar sports this weekend, it's Lester against Manchester United Emmett. Can we have some prices? And then you'll best bet for this game. Please Lester eleven to four draw twelve to five to ten to eleven. I expect this to be an excellent game. I think you both teams defensively vulnerable, especially United's, but but the finish the game against Bernie should give a cough since I think what's most most important, but United at the moment is just is their depth the front. I think it's much in nearly the whole elite when you when you if you can start the game with whichever the three they start with maybe Rochford Marcial lingered guard have rejuvenation to Kaku and Sanchez coming off the bench and Matt as well. I that's I that's that's hard for any team to play against in. So in four of four four, you know at seven games undersold shar they've scored over one point five goals in the second half. And he conducted me back to thirteen to five hearing. That's we're talking I think Lester could easily tire after printing putting the huge huge effort against Liverpool during the week defensively. Okay. Odds-on away from home against the decent. Let's the things that you're not familiar unless I mean, there is the you know, you can question the fatigue at them around the Christmas period that two tough games at Baxter back in Sean Spicer. So I'm when they want against show see him wanting mind just to see produced two performances. I'm not saying they're going to win this game. You know, I've improved on the socio iron the competencies is a lot higher. But that's who to draw would just worry merely obey against Burnley, unless you know, being so strong. It's a big themes. I just think it's a case where the two teams could cancel each other out like both not supply a counter attacking style. I think might be it might be an issue there whether it by one each of the common to to come on here and then on the break up in now because he's going to be low scoring so I'm going to go for jewel. I'm gonna go for LeicesteR in this one. I'm not going to jump on the only gonna social bandwagon. Yeah. I think they still, you know, I still be unconvinced infamy. As I said, the other should've lost to Tottenham lucky to get a point against Burnley amid weak and wins have come against very mediocre sides. Whereas as we know we've Lester, and as Dan said that, you know, they've coped with congested fixture list before Christmas period, and they they cannot take when it matters a beaten Chelsea the beaten city, and and of course, held Liverpool. I think there are still defensive issues to attend to United and LeicesteR definitely have those talking players to to make the most of that. And as we said about than the congested fixture list of players who can come off the bench Hamza Chowdhry, for example, is come on a made a huge difference in that list team. So I definitely have scored debt from can cope with heavy run of fixtures. Anything let you can win this quite like over two and a half and both teams all here. I'm not sure about live at team defensively by in. Terms of the fallen photo groove about munches. She wants it so much quality the even off the bench. But Lester do tend to score in all of these big matches. The only one where they really didn't show. What was a home to Tottenham was really strange performance. But other than that they've done quite well in the big matches and Nava game where we're expecting. I mean, plenty of goals and probably most of them by city into the net. It's Manchester City against arsenal. At the Emmett was to project just what city city, you're one four draws five to one an our slur fifteen to okay, Dan, Manchester City, a owns a fellow big six team. I mean, how you assist of this woman? I'll think. You're inherent reaction is ask just to show. But oh, so think win the games. That's what where what do you do what you kind size? Both seems a stronger up up front the Nile defensively. I mean, all should we been in the, you know, the five one loss the little boy did still score a goal with I often when they got to say, I think to score as well. So I'll just think that the following that logic man Cy in both seems to score just screams out some it so Shadab's against the six to five just think see to win the game because they rarely in. So by performance he's backs about that one against unique. Also as I said before complacent, it'd be back on air for me. The most amazing thing about these free city defeats they've had recently in the Premier League is it's not as like a sucker punch way. It's been new Neil. And then they've conceded. They've actually taken the lead in all free those games, which is a a very strange. You don't know when we see that from a big things to continue the. Wpro away pep said on again on the complacent achy thing he he said, it was the worst thing that could have happened. I scored off to a minute. He said that they're actually to be seen because that I didn't play with the same job. And you see that you would expect him to say, but see me this is quite a weird all human because people signed that Liverpool because I haven't won the for so long. You know, that's the reason why they won't win the Premier League. And then people saying, well, the reason city one is because they've wanted so recently. The Hunga saw. I mean, which which way you go on that one Muncie falls on against a big six rival war play. Do you think is best there? I tend to agree with time there. I think it's Muhtar tobacco. Even though cities in Baotou shores like are slipping eight the indie way league table this year. Just like not defense lick lick Steiner. Maybe even Carl jenkinson at right-back colossus left-back Montreal Mustafa. There's no way they're keeping city out here. I think of interesting to see who starts midfields Ozil star during the week. I'd say Ramsey will probably come back in for him on Giacomo C'mon. Frown any play will be city often fulltime five to six I w Guardiola was carry Ongeri aft off the new Kosslick AM and expect them to come out firing early and maybe going to win three or four one. The greyhound full be quick way. Always lead. Lynn, what's your best? Bet. I'm going man city wins. OCD era. Also started off against Manchester City at the zephyr that game and awesome. Just couldn't get close to midfield to to Austin over the to be there think we can give any of the top six reasonably good game. But against the big guns away of the blitz. Rated by Liverpool conceded free in defeat Chelsea and drew two of eight then very sore subpar Manchester United team and before the new also game kept six six successive clean sheets in the league. And I don't think ask no we'll be able to break them down the anti had lost their last four against city being trusting see wherever Yang unlucky start. They don't tend to in these big away games. But I taught me also got the defensive disciplines Casey out. So they might as well. Try to to go flair wave fired the Monday night game should be a good one west time against Liverpool. Emmett what's the prices, please? We've western fifteen to draw nine to Liverpool wanted. Three. Okay. So freeze on Liverpool falls all Manchester City Liverpool a little bit show here or or do you like them freeze on? I think they were a little shorter obviously have been very poor lately. Some mentioned earlier their credit below expected goes against wolves the poor defeats against within the Copland. They lost form before that as well. And I wonder is what have to handle the are native situation perfectly. Just because I think that they were getting offered quite good money for him on a twenty nine. He's had a very good season this year. I'm not sure how much more get ahead of them. I'm not sure how happy he is either Bush having said that they've been pretty good at home all year, expect them to have some sort of response on just giving the way liver put a plate or you play the season if they do win. I could see it being by one goal. So I think west time plus two appeals at eight hundred four to five. In terms of west I'm against the big sixty season at home. They gift something really good game that they've grown with Chelsea. They beat mention on. They be all snow done. Can they beat Liverpool? No. I'll just think the way they're playing at the moment. Also be a response after the Wimbledon defeat. An minoa myself. I've actually actually back soon so not losing that game. And it was shocking shocking wager, and we'll you know, as has been mentioned absolutely slow to them. Really? It went from bad worse in that game analysis of each went off with an injury the sky, and he signed the heavy bruising off with any kind of bright. But you you think that's gonna make him very doubtful. You know, it's apply and else is they're out front. Andy was come in for a few guys. Look completely ineffective. I'll just find see really where they go threat's gonna come from maybe Anderson, even he's form. So dips recently saw interestingly before even I not playing anyway, the best emolument. I think they'll win thunk female conc-. So I'm gonna guy Liverpool were Winston limb. Young for winter new, and as well as of the young pope won't response from that draw with LeicesteR West Ham just five wins from the twelve hundred games in the league this season. They were thoroughly outplayed wolves lost timeout failed to register show on target in that game as downside. Don't. I think they've look foods at the moment off field issues of oversee interfered with that with that. And. Yeah, so I'm going to go Liverpool twins new. In a few different views in the room. There about how easy Liverpool funded against the HAMAs. It's time for the naps will not be to Royal Oak kicking off going to the championship shift Wednesday drawn back away to which which have only one free times a season. Look at the stats that getting battered on them every week and pool Lambert says we're playing well, we're playing well. No, you don't pull. No, you know, jeopardy Wednesday. The finally got the Steve Bruce new manager factor coming into play. He he's had these trip to what you in West Indies versus England the ready to to come back on your list one or they lost six in the league as well. So maybe an improvement was coming anyway limb I'm going to go to the league for this Frankfurt draw double chance against woman who the talking benders league this season is being about Jaden Sancho, embarrass your dormant Bank. She Frankfort being very impressive fifth. Best home record in the Bundesliga, but their front free, Luca Yovich Sebestyen, how say Ravitch they've just. Been phenomenal little season and Frankfurt beaten. The likes of Leverkusen Hoffman Heim shocker this season. And I think really be out for that game against Dortmund. I don't want to win the Dan sure amid Taibu clashing leagues to Grimsby a home to a distracted. Newport is only Grigsby Arnie's free points below Newport in the table yet there right outside is for this game. I shouldn't be for quite a few reasons. Really Newport, lost Kafer reply for them a winger and swan Semenya who's been playing really well from the line from Bristol Chelsea's. He's been linked with show. See he's been playing very well lately. The first guy move out in a drew Nunu on choosing at home to an injury hit. Violin of borrowed accounts was a was a terrible game. So and I've also got the massive cut game against the replay Middlesbrough coming up a few days afterwards. The winners of that play. Manchester say he's little bit late last year when Newport got distracted or they're caught running their league for winter other concede the same thing happening here as well. In queens, be home. I'm actually being doing pretty well at home one father that all seven home league games including last weekend when they want one new homes. Okay. Tones who went down to ten Grimsby without ten minutes. Well for overhaul for that going. So let's just be straight win straight win shifted Wednesday. Drawn fat we've go entre Frankfurt, not salutes against Persia Dortmund Grimsby. What's your bet the weekend? Like also go to the bonus leader here. Boehner and Mona swollen, the Asian anti-cop. Wait Leverkusen and much-improved lately, they won their last seven and the covert the of the covered the modest one hundred cop away to entre- two entre- Frankfurt and Hoffman. I'm recently, they're caught above Leverkusen. You want us when the as ninety covered by Sixers worth backing off thing cheer against the the the naps, but this'll be terrible from Lansing. Pose? Appreciate dolan. Don't wait. And then boy unit when a tricky game away to Leverkusen. Oh, good on. Same mark.

He such a smart man, we will soon or following your lead the Oscars are so dead like hundred and eighty minute hunting. We're logical at the Oscars. I think we haven't doing kademi awards. We a member we have to all if we say, we gotta say trademark pen. They're lucky we are talking about the what so ever in the company as they will be begging call them, whatever we want to call because they have lost completely their identity. They hunters field Creamer yet. No, more identity, more cohesive, ideas, Everton who they are so funny because he also goes used to be our blatant power sex luxury exclusivity, which you can't be any of those in our current day city. Oscars doesn't know what he wants to be it tried to be ever. Thing last night. David, none of is it just felt so inauthentic needy despots, and that did thing that if you won't be desperate and sad. You can just watch evident. Lisa only takes ninety minutes. Never really had much power. Oh sex. And either he doesn't many people have said to me today. It wasn't very good. But it shows that it doesn't need a host. You think I? Entity you host. Well, I was fortunate now because you have television producer extraordinaire cost. Also, you know that we've spoken about this before when I was ABC running alternative series and specials in the late nineties special specials. I one of the specials that fell under me was the Academy Awards, and I got to be the executive in charge of production for the network twice in ninety eight and nine ninety nine kiosks Billy crystal year ninety eight which was amazing year. Women a young Ben Affleck, and Matt Damon one that screenwriting what it was like it was when alad board moose still married to Kim Basinger, and she won the best supporting actress like everything was like an outstanding one of the classics of the modern era nine thousand nine hundred nine you'll remember the Whoopi Goldberg hosted Academy Awards, probably not a strong as Ninety-Eight, but still really fun to go and do but the economy was had a buzz back. Then had a real thing. I really think but I think some of it is the hosting. I think what Jimmy has done the last couple of years, Jimmy Kimmel been amazing. And that's what people have been speaking about the next issue. Get rebecca. Oh, yeah. Have a host everything and anything I'd have to to do the red carpet and Martina Kyle to organize some street football in an alleyway somewhere behind the dole be fair. But doing all could just do the voice over only would cash Romeo lack looks like a great Real Madrid midfielder. Yeah. I t- think by the way Rumailah is next biopic. With those is I know exactly what you're going to say we're going to say, yes, he's from the bay. Let's kill it. The movie the MS ozone bio pay all say Mahershala Ali, I love that man. His live by pump from his acting, which is genuinely remarkable even movie was crap before he was a two time. Oscar widow it was a division one basketball player at Saint Mary's Davison just known as common old, Herschel Gilmore. So when a watch him, I think the cookie primarily plan some innocuous primarily randomly planet. They who could have an Oscar within if he just left football, a young Blasi Chamie. The. Best supporting actor for rutta to we three rats on the coach on the plane lands. Yes. Absolutely. Who do you think I think based on some of his performances this year both with the ball? And with no context, I think Mohammed Saleh like really see him like like doing quite well, he's a little ahead of his moment. Every now, and then that would be so life, affirming, my favorite GOP tweet the night will finish where it's from. It's Johnny MO it was disappointed that Sunday until I die did not take the Oscar for best foreign language filled. It's quite good though. Really enjoyed that series. Okay, rods. We've got a pack show. We're gonna break down man cities cariballo Cup final victory. Oh, my astonishing scenes that played themselves out on the Chelsea sideline. And on the Chelsea pitch when keeper Kepa revolted against the Marut CO Sarah substitution. Although we're not actually sure what he was trying to do. We recap the injury riddled nil nil draw between heated rivals menu and live Paul, and we talked Burnley's upset of Tottenham Hotspur in the shires to the football, Raj. I toast, and what raise my first third of the day to the memory of my magnificent. But rather the quick trip back to the north west of England. I eight Friday we'll say when the sun is out Liverpool feels like the single greatest city in the world. I was there to fill within Lincoln assaults. You're what a remarkable, man. I can't think of a situation in which one the lice great winners. Six Premier League titles. Meet too big. A loser, Raj. It was just so lovely a truly determined yet. Remarkably humble leader, I mean, just a remarkably humble leader and his story. Beginning two thousand eighteen as manager of Molder in Norway, a tiny tiny club ending at you know, heated and saving the club season as a coach just as he had so many times before as a player is wondrous from a life perspective on a race this bird fan blood fam- to him and the life lesson you take from it be ready for anything. You never know what life will bring opportunity. It can come at any time. Just sees it. Their listen to seize it like. Com. Wait to hear that you're gonna soul cya show inside the mind of OG s only going to salsa as this Sunday at two PM eastern time on NBC and right after Liverpool blowout Everton in the doping live important, even showing them any respect clubs comments were amazing. We will release a taste of the conversation as a pod special later this week. It is generally magnificent. I hear from producer Joe dump outline. With the Caravelle company Cup Cup Cup. Final a game that saw man city defeat Chelsea to play their fourth League Cup in six years old. She that employ them out though, the game ended mostly on penalties. After nil nil. I one hundred twenty minutes that lacked the tool Reenen juiced buzz of Thailand's, second most popular energy drink that is until the final moments of extra time. When one of the most bizarre, ludicrous, frankly pathetic scenes in modern British football history. Played itself out for all the world to see Hamlin. When manager always still the manager Marizzio Sarah tried to substitute goalkeeper Kappa after the Spaniard looked to have injured himself saving his Sergio guero shot, but Capela repeatedly waived Sarraf, despite the Italians insistence on making that substitution and putting on our old mate. With your mayo in the end cap flat-out refused to come off and manage to successfully his own manager in the dying embers of a Cup. Final staying on just so he could lose the penalty. Shootout. Dave. We should call it. Weekly segment. What on earth must Christian pulisic be thinking, right? Is it all melts down before your eyes Chelsea begin the week with news of a fee for ban from signing players in the next to transfer? When there's just Gordon wait for breaching rules in relation to youth players at the top teams in the world. Full up with salary critic found a way to make the caribou count matter. Not on the good way as we'll discuss the sad part for me will blew through this quickly. But this self immolation from Chelsea perspective. They played so bloody well regulation, especially in the second half. Yeah. Growing in confidence that the game plan their manages game. But it was working. They could hold city off. They could deny them space. They could fling the bull forwards to galloping his odd. It was the fray you think about the managers game plan. Any of them are listening to the manager. When the keep it won't even come off when he wants to come home. We can't I mean, it was a fascinating approach where they completely suppressed the space that city thrive in and there were moments when when as our charge forward, and again came up and cracker will mischief a menace and the desire to her Manchester City that seems almost primal to me in any great play before the conflict is just is just a happy moment as when everything feels possible. Made it feel almost even more tragic. They've shots. Amazing cameras angrily had from behind salary where they actually show little Pedro blue chance after chance poor Seri howling at the moon on the sideline thing that was a plan. And I think it was really almost went to perfection within the nineteen minutes for Chelsea football club made it even more humanly heartbreaking to watch how much Sarah one today. How much he craved how much he needed? It was nicotine levels of craving two things. One to believe that you've got to believe that the players listened to Marut CO salary. And I think what happened at the end of this game. It's pretty clear when the keeper who is in any club, the player would least power the player who no one listens to the player who has the least allies around him nine four million dollars worth of coming transfer fee patent some love and not exactly has had a great season. I think most of the year you've been looking at Keppel thinking really we paid that much for that. Like this isn't a player with phenomenal power on the team. You wouldn't have looked to him. I'm as being one of the ploy. He's a guy who gets down to them Riggio, Sarah, these places and number two. Why does Brizio sorry thing the care about couples important? He must have never heard of the League Cup or the company Cup Cup or whatever it was called before at the beginning of the year when they sat him down and said, okay, you're involved in four competitions this year, and we'll get to the community shield in a second involving four competitions Guinea thinks about primarily Guinea thinks about the Europa league. And he thinks about the F account. And then the end he gets to the care about Cup. It's like the suspension of disbelief to imagine that this actually matters to merits, yo. Sorry, it's just situational. Because of what he's in right now, you are drowning you will try and hold onto anything to flow, even if there's a career by if your ship is sunk, and you are in flotsam Jetson and the Cariboo Cup flute past you on the water, you will reach out and try and grab it and treat it as if it's a flotation device he wants his name back Arthur Miller character, he's had the from from a bridge. I want my name back. He wants respect and respect start to self respect. And I'm guessing he's lost them. All also, he's never one thing. And so. Ever ever been a trophy? And in his mind, you can make the case before this weekend. They were kind of fourth of in the champions econ doom better us ten transition difficult season. He wants to show I actually did win something. But let's break it down because it did all start so innocuously in extra-time guero Spang solo shot at capper routine. Diving save seemed to trigger the old Wembley final extra. John Kramp on impact. Savary wanted to do. A rational thing warmer Willie. Is number two penalty specialist a former man city player. Correct hero of the two thousand sixteen Canada. How Cup final way he won a penalty? Shootout against Liverpool making three penalties as I mean, this guy loves legend. I mean still talked about this ballads written very good ones about this penalties. Sorry demands. The change be made Kappa waved him off. And then humiliated. I think is manager by Gresley aggressively impotently refusing to leave the field he would not accent like a non racist. Ralph Northam, this was a sporting mutiny humiliating mutiny. I mean. I mean, he rendered his manager impotence at Wembley before the eyes of the world, right? Yes. He did. And he's a goalkeeper and a rookie goalkeeper at Chelsea. Who hasn't had a particularly good season Roach, a goalkeeper a commoner goalkeeper said ninety four million dollar transfer. He knows going to move me on what do we do going to move me on? And what shocked me the most to be candid was how few of his fellow teammates remonstrate with them. They just kind of walked around smoking or lay Mahar bled for sorry. He did his Langas storm is raging HR briefly down the tunnel. Like an Italian shown pen in Dead Man Walking. Why did Sarah not win the argument? You know, the referee came over to what do you want me to do all the players on the bench Zoeller, even who arguably is going to be the next Chelsea manager and had most to gain from Sarah fail. Even he's saying get off the field. Get wind did sorry back down. Well, I think one thing is we are going into a great sewn of exactly what the rules are. Because this has never happened before. It's. Ever happened before I've never seen this. I'm sure it has happened in some code of football somewhere. But starting hip in entering the field with one point eight seconds left. I remember few. Well, the only cleaned of. But. There's there's nothing you can't have security go on enforce him off the field. Although I wouldn't have minded seeing that. And I think there are some other managers who would have thought that could you imagine, sir? Alex, ferguson. He would have literally sent on the police to take his key things. Probably would have just shot him. Exactly the shotgun shots the over on the under side by musket. His just for that eventuality. You just in a very weird. You're just in a very weird like no-man's-land of it's not law. It's not really rules. I don't think there's a rule that applies to it. So that's one reason he didn't win the argument. But the second is I think really the point that is actually his fault that he does not have a leader on that field with any respect. And when you decide to make your club, captain obsolete in the team, which is Gary k hills obsolete Garrick who's probably the only player in that club who could have Ceska fabric guests maybe before him, but Gary he'll the only play who could have enforced. What happened on the pitch? Dave is a very nice guy. Very nice guy. Mild-mannered is gentle Dave's the man you want your son or your daughter to bring home and say, this is my lover Jordanian. A lot of respect eaten his artists the star. But he's like I'm not getting involved in this crap. Like say, there's no one. One. There's no one to go and back during probably deputy was such a high pitched tone dogs. There's no one and that sort of he's done the he is Sean mattress political leaders of enthused. Yeah. We'll maybe who knows. Thank God Maurizio. Sorry is going to be gone before Christian pulisic ends up at this club. Whatever happened at that point as well. It didn't matter. He'd lost. Sorry had lost. Great question from OG fo- p Mark Cole at black bile. How would they handle surgeon subordination at embassy wrote discuss? Immediate firing Dari. You're talking about embassy row. Neither of them work embassy row immediate firing like his just done. You can't like this to be a decision. Somebody's gotta be gotta make a decision. It's got to happen. But he made this happen himself. This is this is a long did term of like losing the players not having a leader on the field. And not understanding what English football is about the club. Captain is a real leaders on the field is really important. The initially in Italy often goes just by the fault of the play with the most appearances all the most camps. But in England that really does set it matches poor sorry was left to follow his humiliation by swollen pride forced to claim post game that the cap is substitution confusion was quote, just a big misunderstanding. And he tried to explain it away that had to be appeal guys thing. Here's the thing. Here's what we're going to go with. It was a great misunderstanding to swell. I thought the play head. Cram P was right, though, the way he went about it was wrong was was pretty much. I truly believe if the Oscars. Manage without host Chelsea should try and operate for a full season without a coach and see if it makes any without a keep because we haven't had to keep them off of the season. You look at Chelsea the you've got the babe thrown at Marino. You got Antonio Conte humiliated and undermine the season after winning. I mean, it is a wild and unarguable culture. We're playing power powers run. A Mark I will say amidst all this talk today and English papers have disciplining Kappa sell Kappa Kappa must never play again for Chelsea bench Kappa and Kappa. None of them are going to happen. What is the Caravelle cop? Yeah. But if I if I run Chelsea I would actually give capture the ultimate punishment. Patient's day. Making manager. You know, we're going to be the manager. You will suffer. You will do a job in which even if you win you lose and torment doom and a humiliating end. Or you're only certainties it's I hopes description to the middle ages. It's just life is nasty brutish and short. He would never become Chelsea manager though because he wouldn't leave when he was fired which is like which is climate for Chelsea manager. Dave, I mean, you've got the fee for ban, which may or may not be appealed as odd future, and sir Hudson the door desperate to boo gear there. I mean, it's very wild. I can think of few massive clubs when that job is such a poisoned. Oh, cellist thatch fee for ban is almost the least of it just because almost every major football club in the world has some of kind of fever. Fee for that. You're not really. Go on the on. Good into some trouble with UEFA come on. I don't think that's the biggest deal. And I think it is a poison chalice going in there is always difficult and yet you've got a chance of winning something of doing quite. Well, you still got some good players. He's still got some good teams. You still got a passionate fan base? But the problem is they won't appoint the right person. I mean to me lamps. Even solo would be. Be the only gonna socio Chelsea but also doing like to put my hand in the buzzsaw. Do I like to voluntarily place? My heel. He's almost unfirable. Amongst those fans almost unfirable. We will see we will see turnaround winning things in the actual penalties. Did love. Georgina is Skippy. Whiff of a penalty routine jettisoned swatted away with Burke. He's like I've got to shoot the ball into the goal. I congress pass it sideways pointlessly, and then knocked back and forth with the referee for I love when Kappa safe from sunny, and Sarah, celebrated briefly before remembering that he actually wants to kill capper Dovid. Louise, Louise this kickoff the post like a bazillion, Cody parkey and razz maybe his best shots of the season, by the way. Nude? Appreciate did national hero. Raza stepped up with the game on the line deliver date phenomenally clinical penalty, which will be talking about the circus. But we know Chelsea bright side. At least it wasn't six nail lots of progress. But momentum city perspective fascinating to watch. How pet was during the shootout? And it was just the caribou. The NRT is bigger American funds. But this is the first major or made you rich trophy the city of ever retained in the history, and you can see how badly wants a quadruple just from his stress before and after huge weekend for monk unions. Chelsea melted down that women's team won the League Cup beating all small also on penalties and Manchester United as we will discuss gave city one of the biggest assists of the season. As the best thing that happened all weekend Roach. Okay. Guess one of the biggest rivalries employable football and a game with massive title. Implications. Ends up looking more like an episode of mash. But it. Funnier. Actually, thanks to Chris mauling. And man. United nil Liverpool. Mill a litany of injuries led to four first-half substitution three United one for Liverpool. That's the most in a Premier League game first half in a decade. The result was disjointed if effort filled fair after the first goal is draw between these two at Old Trafford in twenty seven years Liverpool. Go back atop the table by a singular point Roach. Having now played the same number of games of city United. Meanwhile, stay undefeated in the league under. Oh, gee, hey, you slip out of the top four. Yeah. I mean, the accent pre-game was at North Carolina levels, but with less shoddy footwear and actually more injuries. You got Liverpool stumbling in after that school is Champions League belt against by Munich. They had not one Old Trafford in five years and on a personal note. This was the first time in my life David ever that. I've chaired for Manchester United, of course, say even when they play by Munich in the nineteen ninety nine Champions League. Finally, I found it within me to cheer for the Germans we've long said on this show. Oh that even if Manchester United play the dictator eleven with Hitler and holding midfield Ideo me on the wing and Pol Pot plan the false nine role. I would chair for the dictators. What Donald Trump in central defence? We've only junior there as well. I dare it going. We political stick to sports. It's one thing with dead people stick dead people. And it's very easy. I'm talking about a living human beings sticks his bipeds s to us. We've only the whale a mayo late documentary coming on next Sunday. Emmy, maybe not wanting to be attacked for them. Slumping off the Ma visit all I see I was just attack attack attack. Come on. You know, I'm wondering if my new temporary Manchester United fan them if we always have this many injuries because it was it was just a it was like a battle royale Matic Giradi out. Nervi store and then the game just turned into a slaughter day. It was like Black Hawk Down all over the failed. Well, two weeks ago. Remember, it was like all livable starting to look at it dotty off to the west time game then oh everything's back to normal after their win the weekend off now it's suddenly like, oh, squeaky bum time. I love meeting livable. I spent in Los Angeles. I saw one of my best mates was livable found Donald even though I think he's been to one Liverpool Gaiman is entire life. And I think that was a Wimbley met another livable fan in their seventies. Like saying, oh, it's like it's nerve wracking. It's nerve wracking. So nerve racking up leading the league being the presumptive winners at any point is terrifying. It's terrifying thing I'm telling you. New seasons ago when you know you win. I'm telling you this to season go see when Chelsea will at ten points double digit points ahead winning every game. It is like leading. And everybody's like, oh, yeah. You're gonna win easily on you. And everybody's just like is the band is coming at you from every single side. It is. Lebanon's on the bench is coming every side is tense. It's winning a league title winning the Premier League. It's like killing a man wrote. It's not easy. It's not easy. And these are the kind of games that you sort of feel you sort of feel that livable going to have to find a way to win. If they're going to win in this one. We got Herrera going down matter going down rash down. I mean, poor only Guno it looked like a man tempted to sub himself on about three times when they cut to him. Then you've got Bobby chompers limping off, and then lingered subbing in and and subbing out. Fifteen minutes later, and I knew Neo tapping out. So one of those Agatha Christie, Poirot novels. Whether just one victim being picked off after the next and you got to work out who done it. And by the way, the answer's always Josie marina with the do Dole's. But what Jim this game? It was like who cares about manages for Manchester. United a good fizzy. We'll probably be back because it was just shampoo chaotic carnage. Made for clumsy and calibrated football. And I agree. I expected Liverpool to small blood like a shiver of how ahead sharks in the water just going for, you know, heated, but they seem this confused by United technical changes as much as, you know, heated were and that vaunted front three that we've just obsessed about for the past season and a half for the last few weeks have been a shadow of themselves. Just as if the season of hard pressing is drained the energy from their legs. It's tough this part of that everybody always says that the tough part of the Premier League season. This Christmas gains in January games. I think is going to February March the weather gets unpredictable. Suddenly like a heat wave going on in England over the weekend. And then it gets really windy, and you just get this like everything gets strange. Yes tired. You've suddenly played. All these games in successive weeks. It starts a catch up. And you see a moose seller who is a non factor money known factor. I mean, you've got solid just being smothered by Luke shosha Kerry season seems to be drifting. Lana done the Oxycontin returned quickly. Enough for Liverpool fans and in that second half as Old Trafford reverberated in a special way that we haven't seen since the days of glory. I mean fans who have an admit Manchester United, but they've struggled. They've glimpse their own form of darkness over the past five plus seasons sincere Alex retired in this game Rury on that depleted, but committed almost endearingly underdog team, it was magnificent just see the players respond. The football was restrained often terrible. But the passion the emotion the stakes overloading of the senses. I thought it was such a Tennessee to United performance. David. Look, we've even to the Marino darkest days, you could still look at Man United and see some phenomenal performances. I don't think Papa was very good. But I am I thought Man United. We're pretty outstanding throughout the entire throughout the entire pitch. And you just look at the quality that they have and throughout this game. I thought Man United were more likely to break through more lines to win because they were true collective on the day, but away the clean sheet proof. Underlain Dolan is coaching assistant Mike Phelan, they can be defensively robust when called upon which is a staunching. If you watched them in the first half of the season one thing, I admired the number of kademi products. They feel it rash. Verd- lingered briefly. Mcdonagh had a great game dominate on the day that they remembered Eric Harrison, the youth coach you passed away last week at blue cube read the class of ninety two would have loved the steel of the performance against their biggest rival but from Liverpool. POV you've said it. They should have grabbed the game by the throat. They were all leaf flat-footed close on the sideline. David different cloth was saying spiky angry. None of the warmth. Love loss, hugs. We associate with he stressed out to the max and a little bit more substitution drama with Jordan Henderson and shake gate for watching his team unable to create short in that second half. And then when their fourth through in the last five in all comes you can see the frustration building. But on the bright side after twenty seven games Liverpool on top of the table. They are one point ahead. We got a title. Royce Roach eleven games to go and say titled the race for second. It is a title Royce Burnley to Tottenham won a massive blow to Spurs titled dreams despite Harry canes returned from injury and a goal lifted right from the patriots playbook by the star striker Spurs were shocked at turf moor by tallies from the Lancashire bash brothers. Chris would. Taunting them. A now six points behind Liverpool and five off city. Yeah. Before kick-off everything fell possible for Spurs. They would just five points off the top gritting win the win phenomenal champions eight I like performance against Dortmund who will elaborate it. And now, Harry Kane is back and put Schettino described the game as Cup final before kick-off way to keep the pressure on this players who took the field at Burnley and cramped the bed. I mean when I say the bed they did have seventy percent of possession. They control play but boon lay or a different team since Joe Hart was tossed aside possibly to MLS and Tom Heaton. Probably England's number one FM being on returned and up front. The chances. They were organized. They were compact in confident and clinical the first set piece, which dropped agonisingly over the head of all development foot leaving would to thunder at home, admittedly. Yes. Burs fans off a corner that should never have been awarded. But when hurricane hero. Hurricane responded deathly beautifully. Didn't you feel for a moment Spurs? It was all going to be right in the world. David. I thought they were gonna win this one pretty easily. Yep. Only definitely playing better. But I don't think they're an amazing football team. I don't really know how Tottenham go out there and lose the Spurs of one three of the last four in the final ten minutes, but initial on Burnley with the team or undetermined, clinical and suddenly attacked the leggy tied Spurs down that oriented weak spot manufactured a winner. The fella gate dagger in Spurs goes, I watching Omar little Jay dubb's big y fan befell by an execution. They never saw coming all of that was just the appetite for the main event the slapstick vaudeville drama, Mike dean v parched. Evo a fight. We would all like to see what? The hell happened there. We have more sideline fights this weekend. Then I remember because we had the handshake gate. We had obviously the Kappa sorry thing and this four caught car pro celebrity football boxing. No idea. What happened? I mean, if you might deem was refereeing, which is pretty well. All you need to say. Okay. So in his mind, he's the prosecutor in rest. Is he he's if my dean and every bo- and if every pope in England, right? Yeah. Just like a beaten up by the Jamie Varda who's in every public very much. I mean, a women irrationally overblown sense of ego in certain himself where it doesn't belong. This was an early morning kickoff, and Mike dean's mind. He's why would people around the world get up early to watch this crap? What does that answer my? But my date for Dino leaving one the Dino got to give him the deny. So at the end of the game, which went to confront Dino about the first goal off the mistakenly awarded corner woods exchange normal run-of-the-mill stuff poach walks off. And then it looks like there's an insult from referee to highly educated stressed out manager and pots just let it all you've done. I mean, we've all done that. We just let it just snap. Snap the exhaustion of the season. Another titled chase slipping away thin squad. No reinforcements, and you go about Nope. In the pub in certain himself, the two squared up who would win that fight David. If it was less. Rumble. And why is that fight not left to rumble wouldn't have lasted long botch were taking him out quickly zone. And there you're listening. John skipper, get that fight. Get the right set out fight put it on disowned. Mike Deane versus Paci no box office records will be broken my crew books. Like, we do a lot on the heavy bag constantly working to up to to the face to the honestly to to the face to to the body and Dino's gone. That's it can you send me a fake tape for our Instagram view on the heavy bag. We might dean's face on the heavy dump. He's. Whatever that looks like she's got it. In the clinic is office right now. Astle to Southampton nil memories. More quietly sneak back into the top four thanks to goals in the first seventeen minutes from Alexandra Likasi Henrik Mika -tarian arsenal. Raja won five of their seven league games in anno domini two thousand nineteen welcome routine. Win for us know, fully confidence. Bruce victory over first leg vanquishers bat. A off in the league. There's a chink of light in season of darkness, but this clinical bunny boiling victory against the team shocked them three two in rela pass and huddles first game in charge by us. It's awesome funds. Gooding their loins for top four push again. Then like Chelsea fans don't have loins anymore may want worm wonder, San loins, then are stirring, you got Chelsea self-destructing. You've got you know, heated it in full injury crisis mode. Ralph Huntington, no relegations feel good new manager bound so technically a bunny hole long burned off play mistake. Stream football two points from the last twelve and you know, it didn't talk them into their next three. I've noticed something about Aston games Roach. Remember when we were kids, and they used to televise because there wasn't a lot of football on television. But they would televise the youth internationals the youth winning the mood play Scotland and under fifteen's, and you'd never it was you think is because the crowd. It was all schoolboys who allowed them for free, which is high. There was not the novel. It was like all unbroken voices. Screaming England's finest. That's what it sounds like the Emirates now, it sounds like one of the schoolboy internationals. It's all kids. It's what Astle is what the eminence has become is all families taking their kids. That's the whole place is high pitch screaming. Yeah. It'll Pedro voices. Horrible. Okay. Roy Lester won Crystal Palace four. Love this game. Yes. Sparkling palace pump four past the boxer pumped. They punish them and officially end cloth. Wells humorless sixteen month managerial tenure that king power. And with his passing come rumors of an old Kremlin league, friends return. So Lester in a second. Let's credit Crystal Palace. Dave, I Roy Hodgson becoming the oldest manager to take charge. And then win a match at seventy one years one hundred and ninety eight days ago. I thought it was one hundred ninety eight seventy four okay interest. Truman was president. When he was born. And palace celebrated with our biggest win of the season Wilson. Hi, imperious a loved it. When he scored one of his two goals and really hot Geneva enough to be read to see him on the sideline just shout. Oh, lovely celebration in one the for polish unless that I just one point since New Year's day thinking that one was against Liverpool. It was magnificent. This was the team's fourth straight loss at home. And they've been beaten six times and drew once in seven games since turn of the year enough to fire Claude PU L after the game move long coming despite the noble way, we should say that he led the team through the darkness of its owners tragic demise less today such an old club because they know it's never gonna get better than the title winning season. So they kind of have to keep things fun and funky. They can't just do growing the midtable safety, and they have to do zany. They have to provide some form of entertainment. How are they going to do? And look that good that good. They'll good team. Good players playing good football palace. I must say even Steve Parrish acknowledged to me after the game that they got fairly lucky in this. It was it was not your four one bothering less to hand a huge amount of possession and sixty six. Scent of possession and just could do very little with it. But how are they going to change things? They're going to change things in the most delicious way, you could into the pay Petur. They can bring back from Celtic north of the wall. Thank you bringing back the broad Separovic Brenton Roseau's when I read Brendan Rojas is number one target. It was like reading brigade middle ravens is returning on April fourteenth. It was brought juice back. Oh, and I think rumor is if they can get broach. They're gonna get Rummy Melik to play bridge. Joe if you think it'd probably be better from technical point of view to have Rummy me on the sideline playing, bro. Jordan, Jim self either way, we went don't say ending will if the broach ends up there, but he's not a very good job. Celtic wait, another character. It's like you lose one grille pulled didn't do a law. Didn't have a lot to go for garage, simply less. Can go if everyone else just left apparently from Phil Jones and brunch. We've got we've got a season's worth material is his first interview on being Lester, he's going to take the woods king power. And he's gonna think Braun king power. It's really the same. I am the king. I am the king the word. I have the power brought the one thing about the last job that would really give him pose a four is they've already won the title. They've already had that fairytale season before he gets the never going to repeat it. The only thing. I can imagine him doing is just as part contract that they airbrush run Yere of all official club title winning photos, and it's brought just face just everywhere with the trophy. And we'll certainly in the most moving scenes of all it was. So it was there alongside Andrea Bocelli because I'm gorgeous. Okay. Cardiff one what Ford five eight Jerry de hat trick. How about that Roach? Jerry, you're old happy for front and a factory brace. See the orange pattern. Neil Warnock slot. What for the now? Locked in a heated break breakdowns battle, the seventh place the spot that could bring European mobile to Hartford, sir. There's never been anything. European in your though, Cardiff me while still a point clear of the drop zone. This result did no favours to their goal difference. I am fade this only. Go on the record for Jerry Dayton. I mean, he's just a gorgeous little Spanish camp. It was a phenomenally finish out, Drake. Doubling the amount of goals. He scored the season. I mean, he's twenty four seems older. She used to be around forever is a mature talent at file under. But a talent nonetheless. And I think when look at them you think it must be so hard psychologically to be Leonov messes heir-apparent one day and then find yourself at the Vicarage Road game where Gs from Choi Dini the in the locker room the next, but I've got credit heavy grassy is proven to be a fine, ma'am manager, just covering consistency. Not just from Jerry day. But from all areas is squad. And I think I'd say what foot Thursday slept on season or wonder I mean gray days to be what I think they've drawn palace in the Cup, which is going to be very very big game. So what definitely in with a chance of like advancing the FA Cup and having a run it is very till season for them. They don't just play stunning football. They are making memories for their fan base. Who are watching? Early terrific football is one around in a yellow and black stripes, and you Rupa lead beckoning as I cannot begrudge him. Yeah. I think Everton may have turned the head of the wrong Wolford manager. Okay. Bournemouth one wolves one juuling penalties from Josh king. Everybody's favorite Norwegian and wral Jimenez, the Lhasa coming on T three minutes. Leave this one all square wolves are in eighth place level on points with what Ford bomblets are in tenth. Josh king miss the fifth minute penalty, which would have given cherries all the points been harsh on LA walls because both of boomers penalties had more of a church of voter aware about them. Okay. West Ham three full of one the little bit of rough. I little bit of tough London, derby sees the rough come out on Fulham actually to lead on three minutes, but were overcome by goals from cherry ISSA Diop, and Mikhail Antonio Fulham are eight points from safety and they're running out of games fast. And as they say, Mexico muzzle tough to have Hennion who became the first Mexican player to score fifty. Primarily go all of the McCaw scored where they've from quite close up inside the penalty area, and this one you mix it up Abass good it with his hand as it's known in the sports world with his Mexican wave and it powered ace Lou Stein, West Ham to their first win in six weeks condemning Fulham eight points now from safety darkness on the edge Italian say re-, one dump squib season of empty hope and shattered promise for Fulham funds, and I really really feel for them and in danger of losing some of their because players if they drop down Raj. Okay, Newcastle to huntersville massive win the two over the all, but relegated. Terriers takes them. Four. Clear off the drop zone goals from Salomon Rondon IOC Peres with the difference in this one but much of the talk in the wake of the game was about Atlanta United alum Miguel alma Ron who turned in a man of the match performance in his first start for the tune all hail megi Amer. Amer on it just seemed to do everything in this game slice a bedraggled Rigaud. That will drool the red cold on the befuddle Tommy Smith who tried to stump him into the ground and from then on the Paraguayan whippet. He created Shawn's of the chances if he was playing like Chivas USA instead of a Premier League team six chances. He created more in a single primarily game than any to play has lost two seasons. And this was just as debut. Hey, an Solomon Rondon pay to Bradley Cooper, lady caca levels of chemistry. It was magnificent to see a human being seizes John's with such confidence in that sense of boyish one that you projects that standing ovation ego after being subbed off was beautiful bow for him and the long-suffering Newcastle faithful. But they've you know that even Chelsea thrashed this filter, we should we just relax just heard this failed realism one point from the past forty take a little bit. But it's still it's a home win home wins wins a wins a wins. You can only. Be who is put in front of you. Raj on one hand her this film, made even Chelsea look. Good ball near the football is incredibly knee-jerk game. The stakes are high families Valmir on he's the canary in the mine shaft, and if he goes well scouts will be flipping over a wall into America to prise away MLS assets, Wayne Rooney gracious, Wayne we gave up one though too are still rumors. That's going Kyle beckerman to boomer. Can you imagine Josie L to do nothing maybe probably going to happen? Okay. Roach, midweek evident didn't lose this weekend. That's a nice things fake. Premier League action. Looks like this full games Tuesday. Most of which are a big crap. But Wednesday sees the top seven teams in action Liverpool versus what furred mandatory versus West Ham Chelsea versus Totten. Hey, United verses palace an Asmal versus bomb of all of those games. There's all fantastic games. And they're all on the NBC family of network. And then don't right. Bunch of crap on Wednesday. We apologize. It's it's a bloody good one day because we are going to be coming right after Chelsea gains telling them, let me do my shot of Yagan Meister that human glass of emotion. Oh that tastes kademi award for that red tape. Oh, that's pretty good bed the whole the green boat greatly. But he me rhapsody say crap movie just want go on the record to watch it the other day. I was a crap movie just think he's quite queens. The queens store if you knew the behind the scenes of what happened on that movie with Bryan singer who basically didn't show up for work for months, and it was basically the movie was like lens for the first I think six weeks by the first and the cinematography and the DP, and then they bought a new director definitely the original script was much darker. It's a fairly straightforward movie, but they're acting performance by ram is unbelievable forms inhabits. Freddie. Mercury. The Harry you switch pending road. Just let me do another show a year you I used to hold on. Sipping. Daytime emmy. Really? All right. Let me do. That was a sports EMMY worthy. What does sport? We never get. No money for anything. We get nominated. Again, didn't they? The nominations. Well, I can tell you. I'm gonna buddy. The, but we're not going to get. Well, we never let me do another show. This year. Taste of Malva reds fiberglass tobacco. And a hint of blood. None of which your go. Well for salary imagine how he can do anything. But what impotently as team exert their play power to disastrous effects against Spurs motivated, hungry professional and winners three one. Okay. Here we go. We really drink. Oh my God. That was that was amazing. That was new rules. I loved drinking with Bradley Cooper is like really why? Why do we windy set down by what's her name? Leanne Giga pulled up his pants on the on the piano was just so it was just so such detail of like a man who's fully in control or she wants to be seen to being controlled the woman that has carried his child birth child is sitting in the audience. That's to me them remarkable thing men. She used to go to connect. Stick to sports. Dave. Oh, you're you're you're okay. I'm just gonna give you the schools, please. Okay. Well, my what showing on state let me go live to what food one city three West Ham, nil old English you Chelsea to Tottenham nine. United to palace three bats and finally arsenal. One born mouth. No. I don't think the Chelsea Spurs game is going to be as close as I don't think. So Chelsea going to school. Okay, nil nine, okay. There are many ways to connect to us, including are exciting times on emporium, which was transformed into the many ways as my anytime. We buy something Biggles more the time citizens as breezed into Rose Bowl Monday. Roger a book. Well, designed in the US S nineteen fifty two thousand nine hundred nine by the Moscow design museum. Yes. The museum itself wrote a book, it's that talented longtime. Listen, there's no I am fascinated by totalitarian societies and this incredibly beautiful book, which my wife just bought me shines a light on the domestic world of a culture that was able to put a man on the moon, but could barely satisfy the most mundane of it people's everyday desires this book looks at those everyday desires to the design of vacuum cleaners cigarette packet film posters, Cologne sneakers so much of which was substandard a horror sats knockoffs of western styles. And then Ray were repackaging cloaked in politicize often von God design, it now seems both aesthetically stunning and kitchen equal measure is astonishing to immerse yourself. Intellectually and emotionally you are left with both a sense of wonder and gratitude to emotions everyone can benefit from. Roach a- cheated on you on Saturday night. No. How was I it was. Cheated on you because you weren't there. But it was worth it. It was really was. I laid Bradley Cooper has baby mobile equation. Well, yes sort of. You've never carry much. Carried much. I'll give me and my mate peeper who we've got a boxing business with each other church management. He owns Churchill boxing club. He is properly obsessed with Winston Churchill we interviews in the stable, though, is we interview added Roberts. Professor, Andrew Roberts, the brilliant brilliant.

This is very much as many the reviews say if the one thousand nine biographies of Churchill it'd written and this is what now. Now, there's no point in anybody ever writing a church bog forever. Again, New York Times Wall Street Journal the PD plays at Tenneco. Oh. Muzzling though, we're probably obsessed with Churchill, this is a brilliant. Brilliant. Single volume is still a big volume Churchhill put him in single volume. And it's not I'm critical is it sort of takes shelter then. But it's written with passionate uses the words. Copper novels written with passion, gray, anecdotes, great stories throughout spat thirty four dollars of bonds and noble is like worth every penny. Get that thing my book, sheep, take you.

"This is Rebecca Lowe will Rebecca if you listen to sub optimal radio, and you on this thing to men in blazers on the NBC sports network. From the embassy row studios in the crap pot of south hope from kitchen counter in the crackpot of West Hollywood. There isn't one is the cost. Hey Siberia here in New York City. We have brave nipples could snap off in this kill Dave. It is peninsula to life. I'm happy. The you. Are you thousands of miles away? You love the cult. Rod. You love it. The added benefit nipples being so hard that they could snap off. You're in heaven right now, I am not wanted one car the today. Dave two Cardi where is the heaven? Also, it's been an incredible weekend to stay inside one incredible spoi- in weekend from the very moment, walls and Lester rang up seven goals. It just never let up. What was what was the Dave sporting moment of the weekend? I think it was the four hybrid. I caught a fly out of the rough Roach shadow Greek. Four hybrid about to about two hundred eight two hundred ten yards on the second hole shadow. My second Gulf elect played all yet that was my sporting moment of the weekend. But the NFL hoople was pretty good as well. That's the four hybrid that the whole Gulf old is talking about the NFL was pretty good definitely a highlight. We've got to give a big clap to referee's flag, which was MVP of the entire weekend. All over the failed. Referee's flag dead. Love Terry Bradshaw. Have in a slightly catatonic stank jonky Cam and raise the NFC championship trophy and Terry introduce him to the world as as Dan crunchy. Didn't notice because I think he thought he was being handed the Champions League trophy big shoutout. Saints fans, also follow us know, feel your pain talking about the NFL at least you ruinous care about. You teams your Super Bowl matchup eighteen owned by a mind who doesn't give crapper by primarily team Astle. Stan Kroenke, Dan cranky against a man who doesn't care too much about his MLS team, bro. Craft a proof the Super Bowl guesses Salka. Still America spoil the future. And none of them were my spoil moment of the weekend. Yours was your four hybrid yet mice boy moment of the weekend. Not as good as yours was what Jin Matthew gonna hey sale in the university of Texas bench. During a basketball game. Did you see this moment of just one? But it's interesting. I've met Matthew, mcconaughey. A few times, I have a slightly different view of it. The maybe most people because I think what shocking to people as Matthew McCarthy plays SaaS sane people in movies, and you meet him in rely key is crazy. He's brilliant. Who so entertaining? So funny, but he's like he's a little bit nuts. And I think that is evidenced in what happened to him at university of tax. Yeah. I mean, anyone who seen the classic movie surfer. Dude, I'm guessing we'll glimpse they. Of the real megani? He if he didn't see it picture strolling out onto the court side in a three piece, Texas kallit, just university of Texas Colette, sue look in energy picture Gareth Southgate bit totally and orange and he took it. Oh, you did. Oh would know in just seemed to take all socio just jumping into the huddle. During timeouts journalist has to play after the game. Womack gone. He kept saying, and they said he was amazing. He dead. He dead is to be who we are tonight that could backfire philosophy. Be who you are J P Tim lull tweeted to say, he's definitely shouting or height Ohio height Heidel, if I could get Mogoma here Everton, I would bite you handle right now. But if you could get any Hollywood star to come in an assistant coach your team who would it be. And why? A mild set to usually when people says if you could get any Hollywood style to like come in, and like, you know, hang out have dinner with or do anything nearly always came back and sale tactics. But in terms of like coaching team, Gene Hackman, I think is probably I'm thinking he's like an inspirational figure he's my coach in the same way as John candy from cool runnings is my kind of a coach could play his coach feel good coach. He lifts gets the best out of the plans that way Dangerfield Dangerfield. He rest in peace. He was pretty good too. Maybe Seri is in danger. Yeah. Weekly basis the same best get some you'll L Jackson from coach Carter porch. Building the player on the field and off the three sixty plan. I'm gonna controversial I'm going to go. Not can they who I am tempted to do an into the number one job Goodison Park, but play manager lead, by example. I mean, everyone loves cute dog viral videos. Right. So be good for you know, winning on the failed in the locker room with a Lance and good for the social media numbers on it. Fall hat Micheri. Forget about it at this point. I'll take those ideal things into me a Chelsea over over the current manager. But anyway, who knows host to okay rose before we dive in one quick piece of M. I B business. We've got a new episode of our visit Britain digital travel series, dropping a social here. Many blazes dot com. Wednesday Roach in which you visit London's animal woman, moral the end the memorial fill is. The one I enjoyed making the most mostly because a it's a stunning piece of chewing listeners in every regard celebrates the thousands and thousands of animals who have died in war that the big unbelievable motto is they had no choice, which is really true and incredibly say ring, but we were there three English people to mules from deepen Essex thing to come. And visit the memorial is probably the most kind of light just truly eccentric British movement about the longtime. Speaking of as Britain. It was over the weekend that you'll Chicago Bears will do just that next season. Roach, like dream of you, Megan back, taking Mitch Trubisky to the church your war rooms to taught leadership taking Terry caring to the pie mashing allies for pre-game protein and a tweeted last night Khalil Mack to book in palace. So that he can claim his rightful throne as king which only realize the tweeting sounds like I'm trying to encourage a. Coup within Britain, which I may or may not be doing cut. It would be much best to learn the make f- in that. There's only one NFL after next season who has not played outside the United States. And that is the Green Bay Packers Roach. They just don't my traveling. They wanna stay at home. Okay. We got a pack show. We're going to break down in also win over Chelsea that left Marut zero sorry going scorched earth talion during his post grave Raza, Mike. We haven't seen Chelsea managed to do that before Roach. We all while recapping your regular run of the mill full three Thrilla between Liverpool and Crystal Palace. They really bring it against the big sites. And we talk Spurs Harry wings field victory at Craven Cottage to the football Roach. Yeah. An toast with my second third bird of the day. Oh, it's a beautiful one people. Love the heads up poor on these bears. They are thing of beauty till beer. I rate on the weekend in which we saw young Tim way a score on his debut for Celtic further testament. If we needed one to the ongoing brilliance of Brendan Rogge's and shell keys west McKinney. Linked to Liverpool by British tabloid transfer paper too. But away a number of American national. You team coaches have told us the western McKinney. He's the one who's going to be the best American over the next ten years, but my heart saw this weekend. When I saw that photograph of Christian pulisic and Tyler Adams, swapping jerseys after the dorm and lights gave a twenty year old son of Hershey, Pennsylvania swapping shirts have a nineteen year old from Wapping fools, New York in the Bundesliga bird fan blood. Fam- a raise my bare to that photograph one it was impossible to look at without feeling. A surge of optimism about the American future. Courage Astle to Chelsea no massive with Amaru's. We've got the scoring started on the fourteenth minute. When Alexander Likasi tained an angry bell Red Cross. They saw I touch at Kappa. Also, secondhand thirty nine minutes would a breakdown in mocking allowed Blanca Shenley to shoulder. The bully was deliberate. Was it not deliberate who knows Roach arsenal? Stay fit and close the gap on fourth-placed Chelsea to just three points. It was reforming select merchants. You're sorry. Mincing no words in his post-game in Italian, by the way roads. And quite the flip in narrative also football 'cause it game Aslund after a week of dreadful dreadful headlines defeats at Southampton who loses to Southampton day and West Ham were fully news, the ozone Nicotera, GMs wages are so bloated. Only loan signings. It becomes an it's by cranky this transfer window, one of the factors that led to head of recruitment the much coveted fem missile jumping ship having been arsenal for just over a year, primarily Scaramucci with this dark depressing backdrop austerity arsenal took to the failed with their challenge for Champions League place on the line, and I've got credit the funds the arsenal funds. They got behind that play is from the off the atmosphere was loud. It was feisty old school hybrid. And the also plans responded, absolutely. Let's also credit Chelsea fans. This is the only piece of credit I'm gonna give to anyone related to Chelsea give some credit to the Chelsea ends with tribute. So that former goalkeeper PETA check class before the game. I like seeing that arsenal were in the Senate, even the front arsenal using something that's very important in Premier League football they were using tactics. They had a gate land. They were they were trying to do something with the ball going for. Forward. Chelsea just look like, they're innate training ground routine for the entire game until right at the end when they stopped panicking and realizing that the audit of the game isn't just a string multiple point was poces. Cross the middle of the field. Yes. Mas. Lonzo hit the post. Yes. They had a couple of chances going forward. But honestly, this was a dominant performance by arsenal. And it was not a surprise when they went in the lead. Yeah. Forty minutes. They got what they deserved after a bold aggressive opening lack that in the area a good just I urge a better second one and thrashing at high and tight with the third is eight to the season lethal, beautiful movement true relief in that moment for arsenal and arsenal. Fungi? So that on the place faces they celebrated and the joy buzzing around that ground that's been all too rare an arsenal emotion of late. But we know this. They will we know an early arsenal. Go so often the macguffin at best a harbinger for the Duma worth. But cello. See you kind of expected them to kick back into that punch on the chain and wake up, but the heat and they wanting they seem sloppy. They will let thank God for kaffa could have been three nila doors and the game just seem like loan quality high on energy, what was wrong with the allowed. My theory is and I've said it, you know, you got a little about sorry. I think you'd being more optimistic about him and more positive about him than I have the season by Lumley to most Chelsea fans Sarah came in and imprison decided long before the majority scored came back. He decided on his starting team. We'll believe that. This was going to be the starting team it would be replaced by the point of the real place by the woke up he decided my slotting team. He bought his system in from Napoli. He fit his plays into that system. Whether or not they played in those positions while on all he's had no school rotation. He hasn't introduced younger place. There is no competition for places apparently on the training ground. All they're doing is running. These like passing drills passing drills passing drills. There is no offensive plan going forward. The on any like set pieces that look like that being rust. The defense is terrible. And it's just boring demos likable Chelsea team, which I've said for longtime. They don't have a villain. They don't have somebody you'd low there have like you don't econ like really strongly dislike the coach. But I got to tell you the most likeable Chelsea team on the most bore into what they're so predictable so predictable Raj leaden is right uninspired. I mean, it's just load Walter likable, maybe because they're vulnerable. And then this one they were completely unable to co vassals vigorous coin press high press, they harried them they forced Chelsea just cough, possession sloppily over and over again. Credit Ramsey in particular shackle Joe Genia like a quarterback spy. I mean, he's been made to look like a one dimensional football. I will say he's been discovered. He's been defend them Neff. He's been done himself or whether it was at Napa. Lee was surrounded by pace in without. It is just only option is to become the master of the sideways pass. It's like to me it's coming very good quarterback. But giving him no elite wide receivers to utilize the strength to the definitely has because Sarah unil-, the he's like an Italian Tom petty won't back down keeps fielding him in that position. Thus can take out a position Hudson the door. You're just good for a late cameo role. And there's no creativity is result. Chelsea in this one little Everton London accent now very much. So it's classic experienced bias from Sarah. He's his plans Lee wants to go and play. He's his system. He wants to go and play. There is no tactical plex -bility whatsoever. Don't you can do that? In the premise is tactically flexible, I worry about giving awful too much credit in this game. Because I feel it you give awesome too much credit. How will lay blade you're actually not being critical enough of Chelsea Chelsea will awful in this game. I think it's tough to boscell too much. Edit Bravo to know win important to three points behind Chelsea right now. But I don't think also actually dominant incredible game. I think the remarkable thing was Chelsea just so so pull in London Dhabi against awful again that could've taken them nine points ahead of them in the Champions League. I mean, it's just unrolled is rubbish that was a rubbish performs. It was revision. It was definitely two of the lesser. Biggest play fell that luck equality all over the field. Chelsea's grace achievement on the day may have been making Socratous ripple muscle pillar of potency. He actually was good. I will get him credit. He was amazing in this game. All snow. They defensive commitment was admirable in this game. But at the same time as you say Socratic was untroubled and he in ca- schone combined for that second arsenal goal. Surreal blooper ca Shenley was found close range header, which he. Completely after and it went in of his Beatty fridge shoulder. It was all reject such a livable. Go right into the corner. Forget the quality of the go look at the victory. I'm watching our snow not just out thinking. I hustle bow muscle. Chelsea it really was it was as close to real life comes to recreate in the end of back to the future where Joe JR. Fly the victim steps up and just punches out bully. Biff tannen. I always kept thinking politic thinking, Dave as he watches this. What just kashogi outshoot the entire Chelsea side of his big boy to shelters on target. What was poor politic thinking, David? That's not the angle. I take looking at this game. I'm not even on the Chelsea show. Yeah. But the cost you back to the amazing game in the beginning of the season when Chelsea beat awesome, the Premier League at how retake and you just look at that performance. You look at that day and use compeletely that everything's gone so wrong. It's because you have to keep on innovating. Bill competition for places you've got blood new place. I was spending the whole time thinking about the commitment of those awful defenders and you look at more under stress Johnson on the bench. Gary kale law able to get a game who at least like puts shifted and puts his like in my store in his own met Roach. But he is a committed committed committed defender, he's a leader. He's a leader on the field wherever the leaders Chelsea this team. Meanwhile, like trying lamp Dhabi assigning all the latest. We've had like never know lead is on this Chelsea it's like some disappointing to watch on Asli. I think policy was probably quite reassured. He probably feels like he's just doing the Premier League version of the US men's national team, but go worse for Chelsea post-game salary as you said did is much comment in Italian. So we could be precise and accurate as he simply destroyed his plays in public as a group than not particularly aggressive from a mental point of view. They don't have the Feroce. Not towards that team. Dave. I'm very aware. This is never going to be a team known for its battling and fighting qualities. What does it make you feel because it's a risky dangerous game to throw your pledge under the bus like that? And the primarily great tradition of Chelsea manages throwing you under the bus Roach. Let's face it Antonia conflict. Did it just radio did it and didn't really take any responsibility on himself in terms of what he's doing and my whole failing? If the place on motivated, you've got to play on the players you've got to create competition for places, which he just hasn't done. Actual does. He really feel that it's a mental problem. Or is. He just frustrated this squad is just not fit for the purposes to play the way he knows how to play it feels very old the store that Chelsea of knowingly. Hide a manager with a no in philosophy built on speed giving him a squad. That's neither tactically. No. He believes as it seems mentally, but we're not in the locker room to it's unclear exactly what he means. Fit for him mean reality never ends. Well for the manager at Chelsea Guay is apparently on these way. Plas sorry knows and trusts and reportedly will get the best out of. But if you look at Chelsea's pattern of quick cooking, manages like bay, and even content. This could be the beginning of the Seri death rattle. I mean Alleluia he's not showing flexibility to coach in the Premier League. And show me a manager who's come to the the system deviated from it livable. He adapted Geoghegan pressing and the squawk rotation livable has been so impressive through the whole thing. Sorry is rigid. He is way too rigid to work in the Kremlin. There are too many teams who can beat you there too many good teams and a London Dhabi is so important. It's why when I watched the West Ham result against awesome, somebody said, oh my God. Happy west handy. London. Dhabi's always hop London teams or with gonna compete audience on teams to see a Chelsea team. Just go against awesome such a defeatist way such sort of shrug shoulders. You looked to that body. Language after the first goal. Sisley horrible horrible to wash from sham showroom in public say. Even as we speak. Get me mcdonagh. He get me megani cost. We're going to tell the get the right Kalisz diet. That's the only thing that's holding up. The Dale Farrah's know a clean sheet and season save now just three points off the champions the places they meant just know heated in an FA Cup clash on Friday attempting to your run of games in which they can prove themselves consistently. I run a big games. One dog spot that we should know ACTA Bella in ruled out of action for between six and nine months after rupturing the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee. I'm genuinely genuinely gut it. Just come back from injury to me is one of the true characters of the primarily and the games all the poor when he sidelined and not just because of the wardrobe choices that we're now going to be subjective from the directors box. We hope the injury hills. Weekly. We hope he's back on the field as soon as possible. A bright side. We're going to get to see his in his tied. I one day is linemen Keeney is mesh tearaway tuxedo before he's back godspeed act. Tough injury to watch because there was no contact. It was just like sometimes the worst injuries come in this context. Okay. Raj livable for Crystal Palace. Three bad. We can be much easier. Small proof. They haven't lost that dramatic blood pressure increasing flare which was the mock of campaigns passed it was a visitors who struck first on Andros Townsend at home. I Wilfred Zaba pullback in the thirty minute. But on the other side of off time livable. The Levy by back to back goals most silent on Roberta Camino slow would not go quietly in the sixty fifth minute James tonkin's, rose like the best looking Greyling in the rhythm mercy to hit and make it to but in the seventy fifth minute Julian Sperone Shaw Cup. Rush allowed solid applicable into a lead. They would never relinquish the final. Few minutes included, a Jimmy Milne read. Card on the sides trading goes one little time when the final whistle blew livable. Retain their four point lead Atallah table. The ROY Hudson memorial Darby and all there was drama narrative. Counter narrative surprise, Julie movements have evil human tragedy. Unexpected heroes. It was feel could it was feel bad. I mean palace are so off live appeals bogey team. They are so resilient when they play against have a Belay fence that chances in this one on the break because Trento exander old is Black Hawk Down. And Wilson we knew there was problems when he was left to run free at only professional Jimmy mill. And it was a right from the off giant killer. Andrew towns, and Dave Moyes TIMMY scores when he wants and the only ones to score against league leaders mazing goals schooled, the season amazing. How palace come out and play against teams, which they always tack. Unlike the three two victory at manatee, this end it like cruelly full them. Give him credit Liverpool. Worse doned, but one nil lead palace becoming. The Fourth Way he team. This is a meaning to score at unfilled their season Liverpool and tried all tricks and by tricks. I mean mo- seller flinging himself to the ground in the penalty area move become let's say an unseemly and a regular part of the kings game. He feels gravity more than mere mortals. David you see this just like as part the game, which is a symbol of the pressure. That's on the went is that come from. Yeah. I mean, I know livable fans can only see an angel in most center. There's this sort of sense that we won't little make him this perfect perfect human being, but it's a horrible part of this game. It's like a something that plays rightfully criticized for and this is happening almost on a weekly basis right now this very heavy feeling way to gravity in the box, and it actually lessons apply lessons livable as it. Same book continuing to turn a blind eye to the happening. I love it. I don't understand it. It's funny plans Daego cost you used to do it. Revile for it. There is something about Mary so good just he said, Jenny walkie, so cute. He such a force of good that we all willing to turn a blind eye para spanked, they were down a half time. The wooden resounding around failed spoke to my brother us. I is is awful heya. But those nerves lanced quickly inside seven second half minutes little lack Spar who needs spark when he got Virgil Van Dyke. Veg fifty six seconds into the second half. Does anyone anyone get less deserving? Yet. More important says the Virgil Van Dyke. I mean shot it was a hopeless shot again, which cannoned up and just turned into a master stroke, David and my what a half time team talk. Plot must have delivered to have them. Come out the school to go so quickly. Yeah. The bull drop to mow cellar. And I've got credit is mine must win ball drop. Dave from veg is my must've liked flick between charge or a penalty here to try and score a goal, and he decided to do the last eight cheeky brilliant flay in front of the just a wonderful wonderful when when he doesn't have to think incredibly instinctively made it look easy. But as an palace sat of Bobby chompers gave him the freedom of the penalty area. Then give me we scuffed shot. Took a deflection on the way to lucky goals. Look as you will say Dave aka a crucial part of the title season massive and winning games like this, which he looking dangerous losing certain points is just is a huge huge thing. Did you really feel when you want Janette mean Tomkins gonna love him with his lamb chops flying through the air too? I never truly believed or maybe I would just wouldn't let myself believe the polish. Did you feel when you're watching this? The was a moment where Liverpool did feel truly mortal. Absolutely. Because having seen that game against man city when Palestine demand city and beaten having understood the history of Palestine gets the biggest sides. This is a Palestine that rushing growing in belief during the game they were in a dogfight. It was scrappy I've just found they could take it. It was heartbreaking to me that they didn't may be wouldn't let myself believe at didn't wanna spirits to be crushed. Because for me. It was no surprise when Liverpool retook the lead. That was a surprise how I mean? I still don't quite understand. Dave, we're going to say Spiro hats off a Crystal Palace coat hair. Railway goalkeeping legend thirty nine years of age poor old sold. Moment that would call a senior moment, I think the brain for America function. I mean, it's scientifically known as pick for the pool toward your own goal. Just a cross bounce infants of him, and he inex- seven of watched. It maybe thousand times inexplicably sounded to palment tool. Go line in a way that could only be described as a bit much fixing leaving seller for the tapping. What happened Dave I was at the onset of dementia patriot go keep us mistakes. Strike states was the midfielder's mistakes worth defense mistakes. Just look awful when they happen. Like this. I feel for him does must feel terrible, especially you know, in context of the final results of the game. It felt over that point especially many doubled the lead for then Liverpool at James Milne, listen of lay in possibly the most nostalgic moment of violence you'll ever say 'cause he was sent off in this is so cute. What lovely way to be sent off to be sent off by referee. Joe moss who'd been Milner now thirty three it'd been Millis phys Ed teacher twenty years before used to run Melnace middle school soccer team Davis beautiful photos on the internet thirteen fourteen year old Jimmy Milner and Joe Maasai. The proud phys Ed teacher on the bat. Right. Clearly previous be up to the two gentlemen. And so a game of heart stopping drama. I mean, Liverpool look vulnerable and to me resilient makes importantly of victorious if anything whole game spill. Through through backing courage. Jelly to Liverpool in the days of Brendan just second mentioned on this podcast tens of possession, the goals fluid. Boof ends it's gonna be one hell of a toy over in. Dave Batten down the hatches and Liverpool fans. Put your adult diapers. Oh, okay. How does field mill? Manchester City three the purple orange clad citizens make quick work of the managerless terriers deflected long-range downhiller strike eight rask's header and a voice on the city that bit straight win in all competitions to begin two thousand and nineteen just four points behind livable title race still on a game when they suspense no surprise. There was a moment when you really thought city were threatened they've managed to play one of their hits. Which is the dose of men city complacency and still strolled out easy winners playing without Wiggins for the first time in a long time had this fear game. But they were no match city took the lead to then. You've been trying that same long show for weeks. Razz Sunday, the dab UT's mazing starts losing to onto less the city on Boxing Day. Pep's team of won their last six games in all comes by an aggregate score of twenty seven to twenty seven to may live a pool hold serve for the next couple of weeks. They play before clubs team which will ratchet up the pressure on them as opposed to playing catch up as they have the past couple of much days. Does make a difference. Right. David an ice still fancy man city. I was asked this weekend. Like who I still thinks gonna wind up twenty league? And I still think it's going to be city Roach. And now the hood this field news on Monday. The club appointed Jens Evert to succeed David Vagner as manager the thirty six year old German like his predecessor left his role as Borussia Dortmund second team coach to join the terriers. It looks like an appointment that will allow them to reset to go again in the championship next season rather than to try and desperately gouge their way out of the Premier League relegation-zone this season. We wish. Him and the club a good just club in a beautiful beautiful part of the country. We wish godspeed okay, man. United to Brighton. One Champions League contenders. Who starting to come more and more to us every week? How could they are only gonna Cise hand continues United when the seventh on the bounce polka started the scoring once a new contract while getting all his steps in for the day with one of his trademark penalties. Marcus rash foot Roach, aka rash beans, proceeded to continue his dare I say James hartness for notching. His seventh goal in his last. Ten gates in the end Brighton pulled one back United hold on a move. Just three points off the top full Roach. We've seen this movie recently built like Connor perpetually playing on TBS, you know, heated reborn regalvanised stories becoming a well. Warm wonder in the same way as bit boring talking about Joe say every week imploding, his death star in the same. Mm fashion. It's candidate boring. Took only resuscitation the team with great play who new from polka and Russia in this one a motivated poker? Everyone now by the way resigning with heated ruin mushy. Al wants new contract Pogues wants to stay. He wanna penalty with some vicious positive hungry play driving into the box. And I will say it's refreshing. You know, heated manages may come and go on a monthly basis, but pope is ridiculous. Trotting penalty routine. Stays say it's really a love great long standing traditions of the English game. And then he got rush Vard's contractually obliged goal showing off his happy feet. Wore a move David around the back around the this is sort of stuff. I see my son jewel practicing like laboriously like minute off the minute the minute minute and little backyard. But the fact that he's pulling off these moves in real game situations in crucial moments nominal to wash street bull Old Trafford. I mean, it's in a stunning movie coincide. Defender finished with confidence for me an acute angle quick mind. Just a well of ability and confidence of this been unleashed its four goals in four games for him. This was his forty first goal in his one hundred fiftieth game for the club and stylish Ingmar more than Renaldo when he'd hit a hundred and fifty games only Rooney at school more by that time and rushed it is younger than both of these blokes ringing up that many games brain did what they made a fist bump boarding go with some reward, but you know, heated held on belief once again rings out at Old Trafford seven wins in seven games. Nineteen goals scored just four concede. It clear the hound logo. Tweet at us. G O P to say, I've just explain United transformation to my seven year old who recently saw the original karate kid and told they used to have the Cobra KAI sensei. And now, they got misdemeanor. Arche? So they're so much happier. Essentially is the best explanation of heard of the Ole Solskjaer scary long may Irrawaddy Fulham one taught him to a last minute winner from young squire airy weeks saves a Spurs side devoid of Harry, Kane, son and Lucas Mara. It was actually the cottages who took the lead when canes pancake Logan replacement all wwl's Fernando your rent turned a Fulham corner into his own net. That's wonders for his confidence rose, but Spurs fought back. I Delhi headed home lovely Christian Erickson cross before going off injured and with virtually the last touch of the the full mentioned wings found space in the Petula, gaping Fulham defence to head home. The winner Spurs stay third nine points of livable. But they moved full player of Chelsea in fourth place. I thought you said the Spurs with hurricane hurricanes. Yes. They might be calling him up next. They wish they had hurricane some playing because instead of Harry, Kane and. They had the cumbersome you Wrens and lamelo replacements with the question was how good would they in the end? All's not so good. Oh, you're renting in particular. He was terrible it quickly proved wasted no time insane. I'm a goal machine sadly years but into his own net. We'll be if you what jet deli in trippy they seem to let that ball off over their heads on its journey. It's journey evacuee own woods forever towards a self destructive Spaniard. Who need Terry came for Spurs to school yells, you rent the flat footed on the volley from AKU and just tripled the bullets hope Forever's across the line, which just only to enhance his shame is living leanness and paid seize the day, you're NT style. Godley was dreadful Thomas Cole. Cook tweeted us to say Spurs are now the fifth leading scorer for Fulham on the season Spurs, look like team they like a team that have been taken apart essentially and then put together wrong again, they were scrappy they couldn't complete multiple passes. And 'cause they were playing in blue pajamas. It was awful to watch. It was just watching blood the avatar, and they were that bad. God love Delhi. David schools a lot with his head is injury to Delhi. I think is really really really costly Spurs. I felt like he's really come along the season being more of a team player had more sort of crucial big game moments. And this was a big moment. In this game is can we say that darkness for Spurs? What Jin deli score? And then limp off we've what looks like a serious hamstring injury. Just another Lou light for already depleted squad. But Spurs fascinating that the site of daily just crying on the bench would have not stuffing our most teams, but they can be so resilient in old times they fail when they're expected to succeed. And they're so Taneja when they meant to be wrote because with twenty seconds to go a bull pumped into the box who's they're not the goalkeeper stood frozen on his line. But it's the other Harry, Harry winks a player who sort of felt this was going to be a big season for really stepped up. This is going to be go down. I think the Tottenham fans is perhaps a career making forms. Hopefully, got Harry winks led the other white meats duping Tanada is second senior goal account. Let read very. Well, but I'm pretty sure he screamed Fulham I will dog walk as he ran deliriously towards the fans a massive go for Tottenham. You could see the relief in Portugal faces Spurs at stumbled hair pot. Choose a man it was going to spend several months every single press conference trying to talk away how little the t miss hurricane. They do miss. The man who scored thirty six percents of Spurs goals on the porch. Won't have to do that anymore. He has a reprieve. And as is you can talk about how much a clinical miss Delhi instead, but Fulham you had to feel for them. They've so Spurs -i Fulham a lot lot lot of fun nece for that club. And I'm worried about them this season. They're going to have to turn it around fast. If they're gonna stay up Porrini era look to them. My mind is fill as I'm sure his mind was woman wants filled with those two. Yep. Skis, quote, that truly great men Merced. I think experience great Zora on the EU was truly living crime and punishment assure the whole book and the brutal reality for Fulham. They've scored I for three matches on the run only to surrender to lead an exit defeated that is relegation full stop schooling too early Russia. They just got to stop doing. The big mistake wolves four LeicesteR three. What a game to kick off. The weekend Raj as back and forth affair in which Lester battled back twice. And thanks to a late west Morgan Hedda, look like they hid under certain until Diogo Zota be a global less to offset track to complete his Patrick and Nuno scampering onto the pitch and left Claude Puel doing his best avant moon, compression, the scream wolves leapfrog less neck into eight place. Roach, more game for those who love to feel feelings and get early to feel and we had in this one love death life in the ninety third minute. Thirty seconds from time a pass from the quite brilliant. Ruben Neves took the ball in his own half one touch. Then spanked a knuckling wonder first time bisecting four less to play by inches. I mean, just look at this point. It was just it's a work of art is like a seeing guy thirty yard or so just spinning ball juice deludes for desperate. Exhausted lunging less players phoned him and as knocks the square ball to jot a wide open in the middle clinical finish becoming the first walls plan to scored don't fly out Drake since not seventy seven cute Pappas mirth new to charge on the field, Yogi club style is team of won three matches. This is on the Shing after the ninety minute Mark this season. Can't stop won't stop and those emotional Klopp lite Premier League manages looked NFL film Schumer McVay with his get back coach. These manages copy wasn't sent off for Renan on the field. And he was sent off for running on the field. They've got themselves get coach I'd love to see that in the Premier League. But again, another destroyed manager Claude Puel Dave was wrecked. That shot of him to see how much it means to his feeling pressure that a lot season Lester, and they definitely want to stay haunts appetite. Four defeats in their last five in all comes the manager much-maligned head in hands stumbling crumbling like a biblical job. Like you wanted the earth to just open up and swallow him whole it was impossible impossible not to feel for. Okay. Newcastle street Cardiff nilly classic relegation six point to seize the tune leapfrog Neil Warnock's lot out of the relegation zone. Bracelets defender Fabio share and using caress finish give Rapids men that. I recall game of the season. This is a much needed win after week, which news broke that the club's proposal is fallen through and the fan base still evermore beleaguered, but a true piece of dog news, which is breaking as we poured today. The puts football puts life into perspective, David millionaire saw the twenty eight year old Argentinian striker who only joined Cardiff City law Saturday as clubs record signing time applauding he's feared dead after a light aircraft in which he was. One of two people aboard this appeared over the English channel on a flight back to Wales just awful, Dave. We wish him as family everyone called if the club the city the fans all of our love, we should be careful of each other. We should be kind while we're still tone boom to West Ham nilly, Callum Wilson stonecutter tactic coupable. Millions transit erosion Josh kings injury-time clincher claimed victory. Eddie Housman at the vitality. Cherry twelve place west time in tenth proof that Nasreen bearing no hatred for his opponents his half the place spy motivation. It's the best motivation. David. I know you you love despite what for nil Burnley, nil keepers, Tom Heaton. Ben foster squared off in a pictures. You'll each producing impressive saves in this law. Neither of the sides of lost in two thousand nineteen and then Southampton two one I'm sorry, Rodica rapid hunched. Really sorry. Yeah. I am. Sorry. You know, at least one ever to get like a point. Even care. This point does season. They're just going to end up like the sort of top hall of the Balsam hop the table, and then three dimensional as it zooms out of his spins around the beginning to the pointless inner table, they doesn't really matter does it Roach. But I am sorry. 'cause I'm sure that you've got a miserable ninety minutes. Even though you're gonna tell me numb to it. You don't care anymore disgrace. This was a disgrace. It's going to hurt so much like the thought is just wearing off all you left where his just hang up six defeat in ten. I mean, the they are the Premier League's version of the fire festival as opposed to a weekend the agony in distress last an entire season. I as you watch those fire festival documentaries. Have you seen them? I have not seen them yet. Roach. You go watch the both different POV's, and they're both quite brilliantly complementary, but the whole thing for them just seem like thinly veiled Allegri forever. Ten season with Joe rule is Marco silver car. Car credit Southampton because I knew the south under funds get angry when we don't mention them. They were more primarily games in the should be angry because it is majoring under Ralph Hasenhuttl they've when four and eight then they did with Mark Hughes three and twenty two one more points than any club outside the top six in that type of evidence, bloody Al strangers new striker, no threat. The real numbers tweeted in to say Liverpool conceding as become more joyful than Everton scoring is the painful truth. I won't make it clear. It's not evident fans only joy when Liverpool concede that would make his horrible people know, we also take pleasure from Ross Barkley plan like crap Chelsea, but I was watching this game. And I found myself, you know, how they talk about east Germans occasionally starting to feel nostalgic for the old days when the war was still up in the same way. I'm starting to like over NAS style joys a past I caught myself for a minute stunt amiss Everton the Semel dice date. The seasons become that baron. I want some by just saying the poet and annot every Everton funds feeling the same sudden us about the play in a suddenness to that. The poet Mary all died this week Mewa loves these lines and the merry all of his lines and read in them. They are true about the pain of what g Everton numbly live our season. No. Meaning which is what you hinted that top day Mary all of wrote when it's over. I don't want to wonder if I've made my life, something particular unreal don't want to find myself saying and frightened of full of argument. I don't want to end up simply having visited this world words to live by Dave. Everson, clearly have just been visiting the premium for as long as I can remember. Okay. France three the US women's national team won. Jill L started. This World Cup year falling to this summer's host in LA Habra Saturday. Still miss Bradley. The US was down three nil before Mallory pupil back a consolation goal in stop ash time. What did you make this Raj? Well, don't read too much into it. But re little into it is one say U S five regular star is not playing cluding most glaringly Juliet's. They were a comedy of really sloppy possession. Inability to force himself onto the game yet. We always say about friendly's. What do we say David don't read too much into international friendlies? So no big deal after an unbeaten two thousand eighteen but it is a wakeup call. Dave. The perhaps the squad is not as deep as previously. Advertise Optimus riffing off the fact that the US lost their first. First game of two thousand fifteen to Frans one was to oversee well into win the bloody World Cup by will say to me. It's more of a reminder that this tournament the two thousand nineteen one is going to be the most competitive of all time by some stretch. And kickoff bring it on his only one hundred thirty six days away. Yeah. US national team rebound today against Spain a game that should wrap up just about the time. This is released in the US men kickoff 2019 this Sunday in Glendale Arizona against Panama, mocking three G. Greg. Good. Good. Good. Good alters. First Dame at the helm gonna be fascinating. Watching him. It is redundant. Consonants? Roach, g force. Do the Meister prophesized. What is going to go down in the big one against Panama yet got mine right here. Don't say, no. 'cause I've got my shot glass and going in. Because I. Gen on needed that January Cam America's January say American tradition, but it's an oddly American phenomenon an international Cam really in name only the bring together domestic players who will many of whom will probably never pull on the United States training top again. But I will say here's the reality. With the World Cup failure and subsequent lost year. The managerless year the year of wondering the US men stock as never felt lower to me. I mean well been in America. It's never fell why you only need to look anything is posted on Twitter and just a responses underneath there's a lot of anger. There's a law frustration. Does love incredible apathy, which is published? This all surrounds us team right now. And the only way the US man can dig out and defuse it and change things is to play games and to win games, which I believe could into this year Meister which fill so makes you feel alive, and I hope the US team feel similarly it's going to be a tiny first step. But my God one we've waited forty months for so this year Meister, it tastes significant insignificant glory. Yeah. That's amazing. You'll Yankee investors said that to yours because first thing I yank Meister is telling me is do not read too much into this one game. It's gonna take so many games the US to come back. It's gonna take a long time Gregg Berhalter to truly put his. Imprint on this team and for this team to establish identity. Again, the people can get behind, but mega monster also tastes of a man who even to get Russia talking about kellyn Acosta. He got a little of his groove back when he moved to Colorado law season them with the midfield bets. Job getting crowded likes Tyler Adams, western McKinney. Kevin has something to prove while they remain on plug duty best to kill the singer. Jim. Okay, raj. No criminal gangs during this ethic weekend but mid week next week mean the many blades show returns to television Wednesday January thirtieth of five thirty pm eastern time. We're gonna pulled off those games next weeks. It'll be appalled, but it will go out Thursday instead of cheese day. There are many ways to connect to us including now extinct Amazon emporium Roach.

It was between why it was between that and bud light. I just had cereal bud light all day every day. You crazy man I know no but I had like the Pats logo on it and it was staring me in the face. You know they just lost this weekend but I wanted something tasty. I just had like frigging Kashi Ebb Autumn Wheat Cereal for dinner. Because I'm broke and I can't afford real meals and what's in the fridge. Something flavor are instead of eating wheat. And you know what I saw. It looked back at me. And you knew it mango flavor or something. My favorite limes the best of my opinion. But Hey we're here and Martin. Let's talk about this Manchester Darby. Is this title race now over. Are you happy that now. You've pretty much solidified in Liverpool winning the League. Do you feel good about this. Lust is coming back in a big way. I know Liverpool's GonNa Fuck Up. It's a matter of time and I'm just hoping Leicester doesn't Fuck up I'm jumping. Horses Man City was my horse at the beginning of the Susan to keep Liverpool from winning their first title. Ever and now I'm on that Lester train. Let's go Jimmy. Vardi Dude Sixteen goals to his name already. He's on a nine game scoring streak right now. Eight Games scoring a streak. I don't know why I can't say that little alliterate So I'm I'm big on that lesser train city already betrayed me I. I hated them already. So easy easy to ditch that horse. They're done they're out. They saw pets for sure. Gone are saying he's gone is the four year blimp on. Oh yeah dude the second. He doesn't get his way he throws a fit and leaves and then go somewhere else. Has Money Flung at that team wins. A ship. People sock is cog and Wash Rinse repeat. It's a vicious cycle okay. Well we're GONNA talk more about that after the Game Manchester Derby Man City losing to Manchester United two one markey's Radford with the pen Anthony Marshall following up only six minutes later Nicholas Awesome mendy making an interest in late in the game but Martin. I was going to bring up on the previous PA that only only had like a twenty-seven percent. I think I brought that up on the one pod in win percentage and this big in these big tops. Six Games opening up the season four nil Chelsea. He won a couple of other. I forget what the other games were I think. And you guys beat Tottenham this year. I can't remember but any who you guys play. So yeah it was taught and that was the last game before before this. Yeah because it's juicy Marino's revenge game What is up with your team like is has already fixed it does he know is what's going on with this with the squad Dr? We're just the classic mid table team who happens to be real good against the top six and Piss poor against the bottom six where the new wolves it was leery about the good at beating the top six and we just happened to be part of the top six so Let's go wolves part to Manchester United Wolves. That's a sicker name name. So you know what I'm fine with it. How The Times have changed? I Love Marcus Right now. I said at the beginning of the year. This is a make. It or heartbreaking year for Marcus Rochford and you know not. Having any competition at the striker's position has led him just open up and you know lit rash would be Radford. He is killing right now. He is on an absolute absolute tear. I knew that makes you very happy. You've been a Markey's restaurant stand from day one but is this more man Man City just capitulating or is only just getting it right. Well it's a mixture of both the You know it's One united on that most dangerous part of their attacking plan is when they're on a counter attack on. That's what united has always just been lethal at and Luckily under sulks your one thing that has drastically improved as the finishing when the chances they're in Rochford is dead on on the money right now so I do think that social is beginning to use united in the most efficient way for the a united team to flourish in that counter attack Attitude as well as just the lightning fast attack. It doesn't matter if the Bulls starting in in United Zone opposition or at the halfway line. They're trying to get into the corners of the field. As fast. I dig that Shit. I hate techy talk. Football As beautiful as as it is it's not in the DNA of this club and so it's getting right there and it's also city just getting drastically wrong this entire campaign I mean Goddamn. They're fourteen points behind Liverpool right now in the commentators and the You know the hosts what's of Monday night. Soccer and Sky Sports or all saying that Manchester City is still is fourteen points behind Liverpool. Oh can catch up and and everybody knows the answer. Hell no they can. Lester is eight points behind them. Talk about that city is down and out in this championship race and you know part of it is due to injuries that they've had at the back. They've just you know I mean Goddamn it's it's a shame to see them just suck so much in the back back after this stellar year. That they had last leftback save their life. Yeah I mean for God's sakes they're playing Angelina who is trash on. Fire so Woah. It's a mixture of both. I'd say but you know all the got his number for sure impetuous for sure not happy about it after the match. Did you see when they went to shake hands and peptide given a little talking to an Ali gave a little flustered shrug and walked away. Yeah there was some sheer tension engine. I think it's been boiling for a few weeks. Now if pep and he's kind of seeing the title just get farther and farther out of his reach so especially to lose a Darby Abi and you know all the comments will come out saying like your squad on. Paper is so much better than Manchester United's and they had the possession they had the shots shots So on paper. If you look at this you're like Oh miss it. He should've one way by way. More or should have won this match but in the end Manchester United just could finish on that day and said he couldn't do a goddamn thing. Yeah man I mean it was crazy to see this city team resorting to just throwing in crosses for the final twenty. Five minutes of the game like city is tone for just absolutely pitch. Perfect beautiful passes beautiful You know a number of plays that end up in just this day. A perfectly worked goal and this city team was just trying to flash in as many crosses into the united box as possible and it just wasn't working and they've done that before on. They did that against Liverpool when they were losing when they just panic. This this city team just does not seem to be anything close to what they were the past couple seasons and vineyards damn easy to say at this point that they ain't in the title title race. I mean eight points is one thing fourteen points dude. That's that's a lot that means Liverpool has to lose four matches and draw to and signals. That happened in the style. Yeah yeah that's that's a huge ask for them to just have a chance given with them so I think because of this dude PEPs gone. And he's he's done his son. He's had his fun. He's one is trophies and he got beat and he got beat bad. This is reminiscent of his first season in charge in the epl where he's just getting found out. and his tactic optic saint working. Yeah just you know. I'm not going to rain on Nancy's parade even more. I kind of feel as though all their eggs are now going to be in the Champions League basket which I wouldn't be that confident for them right now but I just want to say? I think it's kind of ironic. That pep is being like we didn't get the transfers we want. We don't have the players on on the squad after spending almost a billion dollar seven hundred million dollars on this squad so to say and you know I wouldn't be complaining that much. Shamin you won the quadruple last year so an injuries do happen and Liverpool to their credit. We're just one point behind you in the only year that someone's ever had that amount on a point and not win was because of you so I wouldn't. I'm not going to be shedding any tears from Nancy. I'm just being honest. Do I mean going into the game though like everybody. Thought I mean there's GonNa be an ASS. WHOOPING CITIES HAD A bad couple run of games? And they're going to take the zone out bounce back on. Yeah Yeah Yeah and they just did not perform at all and dude like I I. I genuinely think that everybody can look at this city team and think they can be beat now especially by the other top six teams especially by you know the wolves especially by Super Creative teams. Like Lester and I think this the city team has lost that immortality and other teams are going to start getting more confident and picking that team apart because that defense ain't getting better anytime soon and It looks like that some of the players have just lost their efficiency undercut I mean. Kevin Brown is an absolutely brilliant player and he wasn't able to impact much on on the field against the United. So this is a real concern for pep and city but you you know on the flip side. It's a great fucking day for me and I I will wallow in this just pit of sadness that Man City fans living. So I'm I'm just Giddy as a horse right now. Hey you should be you know when you win. Celebrate hard when you lose you were were onto Cincinnati. Where on on to Boardman? I don't play next anyway Great Great Darby kind of a shock so I was pretty excited to see that I mean it is kind of a win. Lose for you because you pretty much solidify Liverpool winning the league but hey it's okay. It's alright the Liverpool. Do Man's been quite some time. Lester coming back I can feel it in my bones chickens yet. Let's move on to another upset of the weekend. Everton over Chelsea the three one led by Duncan Ferguson What the hell happened here? Martin Chelsea's been riding high in this ever Tintin Tintin that has now fired their manager Marco Silva he gone you know. Was it just like a team against the wall playing for everything where Chelsea I'll see you know is definitely out of the title race Not a lot to play for in this game and just what what exactly happened here did. I'm going to give you some inside inside a trading knowledge here coming from a Chelsea Fan who's who's pissed the fuck off This this anonymous individual blames it entirely on Kante being in the squad and if you look at Chelsea's run of perform in in there just absolutely brilliant opening to the season after the opening day against Manchester United Content has not. I've been in the squad and they've been starting dzhergenia Mason Mount and covert and with Kante healthy again. Of course you're going implant. He's one of the best Senator Defensive Mids in the world let alone the Prim and since Chelsea has come or since Everton Oh my God since Kante has come back to the squad Chelsea has looked more defensive looking more lateral in their movements and just is to have kind of lost that creative spark that Mesa Mount just gave to them from the first whistle to the last whistle. So I'm I'm kind of agreeing on this. This scene Cena Chelsea play. It's not the Chelsea that we saw that we if I might say kind of fell in love with and this is back to normal Chelsea where I kind of root for them to lose so The Magic's gone I'd say the Magic's gone no the underdog Chelsea honeymoon period is over No I really think it was down to Chelsea coming out flat-footed and Everton in wanting it more obviously and you know you gotTa legend like Duncan Ferguson behind you the players are playing for their coach in that at this point You know and the C Ricardson cover Lou and out there just high flying and having a good time it seemed like Everton were in a deep deep depression I've a lot of friends who were Everton fans and also there's rumor said David Moyes was coming back to the club and everyone was just like just cancelled. The club love. Now let's go win the championship next year so they got themselves allegations own. I really did. I do think this is kind of a Fluke Game Chelsea just did not show up to play and you know good for Everton but I really don't see Everton continuing this form at all but now the rumors are coming to the club so good. Good luck guys. Good luck toffees. If that happens that will be genuinely the worst stab you in back. Move by Club since Chauncey gave you guys Davin. Louise Arsenal gives Everton fucking unite emory. That's horrible man. That's that's just that's just rude. You don't do that to another printing. You do that. Someone in Germany or France. Let that idiot go to back back to Spain or something. Don't send them around. The primary go round is just gonNA keep getting fired and hired. Good evening I do not see I think unite needs to chill out dude. Just go sit on the couch. Take some time to Josie. Marina did which I'm not saying they're in the same same level as a coach at all. I'm saying Jesse Marino kicked bag did some commentating stuff kind of you know. Got Himself back in order. Got Him sorted awarded. I think his best is just to take a year off. And then you know see where the chips fall. I really think it would be very bad for for both parties involved Everton and emory to come in this union together at this point but you know good for Everton out of the relegation zone Chelsea See. I think they'll be fine. I maybe Nicola Conte need some time to find his footing and get back into playing form. But let's move on to the to show lacking of the weekend. Liverpool bore myth. Three nil. And then Tottenham five no against Burnley. Which one you want to start with Tottenham Because that's that's good bounce back in we're talking about all these games where the favorite just gets beat. This is a true favourite beating leading the piss out of their obligation off the back of a pretty shite game against United Midweek. The had to make a statement and God damn it they did and and if we can just capture one single moment of that game that that fully captures the statement that they made its hyung-lin songs absolutely God their perfect run from his own eighteen to score on nick. Nick Damn Pope and Kev just just six to midnight immediately. I love that man like I know. You don't like Spurs and good the reason the whole London Darby but God damn it sounds beautiful man. He's so fucking good. I love song sown as an arsenal fan. I there's just some people in world football you can hate and homing son is one of them. I love that Juicy Marino son calls awesome Sonodo amazing and that was a total like Fu fever. Move where when you from the kickoff take the take your player all the way down in score I love that and he did it from his own eighteen the whole time and I've watched this replay Martin probably like five or ten times in every time I watch it I'm like Oh he's GonNa get tackled right now now he's going to get tackled and never happens and it's such a satisfying thing to watch because I know in my life if I ever attempted that even in a Sunday League game I would be losing my entire lakes so sawn amazing run Harry Kane with the brace and in Tottenham's having fun again Tottenham looks like they're having a good time post Pocchettino I mean they slept against Manchester United but hey Martin Tottenham looks like they've got back into as some type of groove and it's you know as an arsenal fan it kind of pains me but it's kind of cool to see all these guys having fun again Oh yeah and I I do. Think my favorite little feel-good story of this whole Jose Marino higher by Tottenham is that wind little who Christian Erickson who bitched embiid and blew the whole house down and got podge fired and tried to force his way to Real Madrid. Still isn't getting look at the starting eleven ride that bench. I love Marino's savagery. Keep writing that bench Ericsson you bitch. Yeah no love for the WHO. I'm totally fine with that. I felt juicy marine. You came in and was like well. If you're going to be this way then cool we'll see how your transfer Evalu- go sitting on the bench bitch so and Burnley. We haven't mentioned the opposition. They didn't even see in a chance. This was there's a huge back You know Bounceback game for Tottenham. They're coming out guns a blazing. I mean so. Co scored a goal for God's sake so showing the boys loyd worldly so so yeah I will say I will say another good story. About Moreno's arrive what Tottenham is that Sasako has been transformed transformed into just and actually great Senator Edward Good Dude. He has gone to him under he. He's gone from bad to great for him very good. I'm going to give you him. He's president me and it doesn't take a lot to impress. Resume his past form. It's literally as if Fellini went from bad to have good and he didn't even make it that for this is truly early. Impressive Fellini's legend. Don't you speak ill of that man on this pod. Second I hope is in Turkey. Yeah Fair who isn't dying Turkey. Okay all right crackle topical. We're having fun anyway. Yes it's pretty pretty good now and it's you know he's scoring really good goals volleys screamers. It doesn't matter the guy scoring pretty sick goals so That's kind of a bright spot spot and Burnley. I'm always assuming they're not going to get relegated but so far they've had like not the greatest run game but let's move on to Liverpool versus Birmingham. Three now Oxley Chamberlain the OX scoring his first pickle in over a year. It pains me as an arsenal fan to see him Not On my squad anymore. But I'm so happy for him. He's one of those players when he left. I was just like you know what you got out. You escaped and I'm happy for you. You got got out before it got really bad. And it's awesome to see him back on score she does recommend goals Mohammed Salah back on the Gore skull. Ah Scoresheet again. Liverpool are just a wagon and. I believe this is thirty. Two Games unbeaten something like that. Thirty three thirty four there is there. Is there a way that Liverpool lose a game and will become another invincible squad. I'd like the two thousand four arsenal. Yeah I I certainly think that they will lose a game And I'm I'm I'm just GonNa say that I think this Performance Against Board Myth was Liverpool's best performance of the year From the first whistle to the last they dominated they'd possession. They dominated the shots. They truly did not let born that close to their own half let alone their goalkeeper for the vast majority either game and with Naby Kita and my man Hamas milner and Geordie Henderson in the midfield. That's simultaneously a super defensive yet. Very dangerous attacking midfield trio and you know it just worked to perfection in if if money is hurt just throw in or regear just throwing off late Chaim Chamberlain. They've got so many bullets in Liverpool Gun. It's crazy and they did their jobs. Damn well this game and I like I said I think this was the best performance of of their campaign so far but at the same mm time I- Hordley think that they'll lose at least one game I think that they'll lose against a lesser Let me change that too. I think they'll lose too. I think they have a chance of losing against Leicester I think they have a chance of losing against Manchester United we almost beat them. Shockingly United Liverpool game. That ain't the season that's a stand alone. Event for United Liverpool. I think they have a chance of losing against Manchester City. If they get their shit right but I think that they will lose very very very very very few and the likelihood of them winning leaguers. It's too much it's too damn much. It's almost certain Marin and and I knew that pains you for me to say I know it's still. We're abou weakest this week with fourteen now. I think we're more sixteen. It's sixteen so we're about a third of the way through the Premier League and Yeah Yeah I can't do shit two games away from half way so yeah like a third mathworks works right to away from thirty. Three percent is fifty. That's towel psychology major. Here Yeah but Talking about Bournemouth though this is their fifth consecutive defeat. Eddie how in the boys I think any house getting on the hot see man. I thought you know who's been now kind of a staple the past like few years here in the Premier League Not Looking great for bore met. There definitely need to win. I mean you are going up against the juggernaut Liverpool so but eh he might get some breathing room because there are wagon. But Hey Martin you know who else is a wagon frigging lesser. Oh Leicester City baby the Fox this is just keep on rolling Jamie Vardi going eight consecutive games the goal defeating Aston Villa Four. One Jamie Vardi On the scoresheet. Obviously as I said Sorry I'm just trying to pull up my notes Oh Jamie Vardi with a brace. Excuse me in the show and Johnny Evans And you know to his credit was getting beat up the whole game but you know lester tickets. Six point lead over city only house math work. Eight eight points behind Liverpool. Yes yes thank you Brendan Rodgers just saying he really. I'm so imagining. Running that day of him lifting the Premier League trophy just one point above Liverpool in the world ending for Liverpool fans. But this has been This is very good. Good for the Premier League is it that Lester is really good or the rest of the top six is very bad. I think it's more I'm leaning before. I would have said the rest of the premise bad but lester I I think are that good. Yeah I think we talked about this last week and I met a perfect happy medium we talked about is Liverpool really damn golden in route the rest of the League real bad this year and I think the same goes for Lester rest the League is is p.t right now pretty trae But they're also really fucking good and I mean you just watch and Lester game and did you. Just you just see a whole heartedly dominating performance and the likes of Harvey Barnes James Madison Ben. Show Jamie Vardi in any Acho coming off the bench. These these are incredibly dangerous players that you have at your disposal Ciancio as made just a great name for himself at that back line. Johnny only Evans has refound himself after spells at Manchester United and West Brom and finally got to a big club Leicester City and You know he's he's is crushing it in the bag. I already mentioned Ben Show of one of the best left backs in the Prim and I I do mean that And then on the right hand side you got got Peta and it's it's just it's just a bad ass team led by a ex Liverpool manager. So you know. He's got the skill to lead a the team and under biard Brandon Rogers Rogers that Liverpool deemed. Bad Ass. Man Suarez Torres. Are you kidding me. That was some of the scariest various Liverpool squads that I've ever seen in my life so this guy knows how to attack. He knows how to play some bad ass. Football he's got a IOS eight Perez missing about ninety percents. Uh of the shots he takes but still lethal as a bitch when it comes down to You know just a golden chance and and it's it's just just running on full cylinders and I'm so here for like I said already jumped. Horses was a super easy switch Rooney. I'm on this Lester train. Let's go Jamie Amy Vardi. Let's do some years ago and some Red Bulls and let's go win another pram boys coming home baby. It's coming home the less there. Oh my God I am just so infatuated with this squad from James Madison to any Acho to Vardi Just literally nearly every part of the squad. There's not a player on the team. I do not like and you just play such fun attacking football like I love that they come out every game and they're just like yeah. You know what we're Premier League winning team and I do not care who were going up against. We're going to go it just pedal to the metal baby. Do you see this lasting. Do you see Lester giving Liverpool run for their money in all seriousness. Yeah I mean like I said I think on any given Sunday Lester can give Liverpool run for the money. I think it's definitely gonNA come down to a battle battle of consistency in Liverpool's winning match it So I I don't think that there's a positive chance that a Lester can catch up but I certainly think that they can keep that pressure on Liverpool if you know if Liverpool lose one gain and all of a sudden lester is five points behind. That's mad pressure. Eight points is a nice show spot. Five points is a hot spot and who knows what that can do to this Liverpool team So I I do think that Lester is are in a very dangerous position right now and I think the consistency agency that they've shown us thus far the season especially defense event and attacking and all over the pitch. Like I genuinely think this is the the best put together a team of the So far like if you gave me a choice Pick the best best collective team who works brilliantly together plays the best looking football and just just wins games by dominating dating margin week in week out answer to that it's not man city. It's not Liverpool it. Certainly isn't a Tottenham Manchester United or Arsenal. It's it's Lester I mean Goddamn say they beat Southampton nine zero nine zero people. That's just something people don't don't fucking WanNa see that's just a bloodbath right there and So I think this team can certainly keep that pressure up. I'd love to see them. Continue it but Let's let's be clear. I'm also rooting like this game was just a great game for me because I'm loving Aston Villa this entire year. I love Tom. Heaton first and foremost I a Tom Roaming. WHO's unfortunately out for the year? I loved Him Jack Relish. He's my boy James Mcginn. He's my boy Agasi. He's just a fastest shit striker running down the right hand side of the field that he reminds me so much of salon. That's wild then you've got Douglass Louise's that wild Brazilian in the middle on the field. Just shooting ripped skis. Like Ruben. Neva's does on the wolves and then headed up by Wesley who came from France Man. This this team's awesome to two huge Villafane Lesser Fan. I'm just a fan of every team. That's in position. Seven and down. Except yeah I mean who gives a shit about Newcastle. Yeah I love this entire squad. They're just exciting every time I see them on the TV or for being mentioned they're getting flipped on so But I like to move on from Leicester and Martin Arsenal or back near did it. You did it use a little bit. You did it you son of a bitch arsenal. I'm back in. Maybe I will say for the first sixty minutes where we look super lethargic and did not care about this game name. I did want to die and really started to question. If Arsenal football club would be relegated. And you know people told me. Brexit wasn't going to happen happened. People told me Donald Trump wasn't going to get elected and then people started using arsenal won't get relegated so I don't know what to believe anymore in twenty nine thousand nine but you know what no David. Louise starting may have been the key and Nicholas Pep Bay. Has Been Unleashed Baby Ebb Martinelli with the with the equalizing goal and peppy with the enrollment goal and the assist a bomb Yank. These guys came out and got Freddie as I win. We go against Man City at the weekend. We talk about for Friday's episode. where I really think we're GonNa get our shit kicked in but I do believe that this team finally got some stuff together to beat a West Ham side who I totally thought? We're going to beat US penalty especially because for the first half in the first twenty minutes of the second half. It was not looking good for us. But what were your thoughts on the game. Marin I'm back in on Occidental do you you goes beat a sixteenth place team. I'm so proud of you right now. Thank you it takes a lot to be fair I I saw the I check. ESPN at halftime and I saw West Ham was winning one zero and I I sent cabinet friendly suicide Texas League. Yeah Hey you're doing. Okay how are you doing. Oh you're just doing it to be addict. Don't even say you're doing your kindness of your heart or sure I mean. Press me and I'll tell you the truth but I'll initially CEOS out out of out of concern true concern so at that halftime point I was I was you know. Kinda in the same boots as Kev. I was worried I was concerned. I was noises. I thought this Arsenal team was going down to the championship. With Norwich and Waterford offered but I mean in the manner of six minutes I mean first goal. Sixty minute second goal By Nicholas Pepe his second of the year. Seventy million dollars alerts in the sixty fifth minute and then Abo- rounded off in the sixty nine th minute nice Just a complete turnaround turnaround for that arsenal team under Freddie and kept this is this is my query my question for you my man Is Freddie GonNa stay to the end of the season and are you guys going to bring someone else. I heard Maximilian leg-weary as learning English. Dude so he can reject you Damn it who do you who do you want. Do you want Freddie stay. Do you think he's GonNa stay. Oh no Freddie's gone. He's just there to hang out toward the end of the season. And just make sure to steal the ship so we don't end up in the relegation zone. Carlo Ancelotti is now out there Oh True True Maximilian. He's still floating out there Those are the two most sought after managers right now. I just want to get to the end. The season with least amount of bruises as possible. So I just hope Freddie can just make this a tolerable experience till Oh the end where I'm not just pulling out my ginger hair. So Freddie all you gotta do is is not fuck up like if you can keep it out like sixty percent fucking up I think I can survive until the rest of the season anything above sixty percent. I'm going to be like Freddie. Why so I think he's just going to just kind of like how gigs kind of guided Manchester interest? United to the end of the season. David Moyes laughed. I think God got the sack. No no no no. He left on his own accord. He he was too good for that. Club I need this club. Legend to to just chill out and just be like. Hey Boys we just gotta go out there and just don't get embarrassed. Just don't be embarrassment till the end of the season and I I'm fine with that. We're still you know where I wanNA chill out the rest of the season you know. Just don't get blown out by any top sick sides we're going to get some in does not get any any embarrassing losses against some lower inside skipped you. I'm fine if we draw the rest of the season. I'm fine with that at school. I'm this how far the arsenal fan has fallen. Yes or hoping for a coast without bruises to the end of the season. My heart breaks for you. Well what do you want from me Martin. Here I am Tato Kevin unchallenging the title win the champions the windy here openly fuck off dude in Tokyo contests heading there enter and if we face them. We're getting fucking shit pumped sames. We've been playing fucking nobody's from Russia Ukraine Belarus. You think the second we go up against a quality side opposition. We're GONNA they do well. That's a whole lot of nope. I'M GONNA go with no and I just you know. Every I'm sure Arsenal fans are gonNA listen to this and be like. Oh come on Kevin. We gotta have higher expectations all right dude good for you. I'm happy for you that you think i. I'm just trying to be realistic account here. Can you stop laughing. I'm just trying to sorry. I'm so sorry hold on. I'm going to give you a little little spark of happiness. Davin Moya's has linked profile. Oh my God ah soon as this podcast is over. I'm going right to that. I know I lied not allowed. I'm sorry I read the full post now at said Davin Moya's manager profile Laid in transfer market and it turns out linked him was an ad. Oh that's disappointing. Oh my God he comes to my club. I'm literally going to throw myself off a cliff. All right That's that's talking arsenault. Let's move onto some questions Martin are you ready. God Yes okay. Hey the first question about arsenal God damn it alright. This is from this is from our instagram. We just passed a thousand followers. So thank you to everyone who follow us us on our instagram. You guys are amazing hitting that one K.. Means a lot to us. We've been working hard at this show and you guys are the shit first. Question comes from from Nidal's underscore fan. He says what what coach could help. Arsenal returned to good form Carlo Ancelotti could Maximilian Allegra probably could Trying to think of anyone else out there who's on the open market it's centrally those two who were probably the best coaches out there air on the web. I mean Paci no but I don't see him going to arsenal just because of his all about not going to rival teams Martin is is there anyone else I might be forgetting or who would be the best fit. I mean like you said I I think the three that you name Podge Allegria and and my main man in Carlow are the best coaches at at the top of the crop right now and I you know oh I think luxury has been on your wishlist for quite a long time. I think that he is Just he he he. He did magical things that event and they've made a huge mistake firing him opinion and Saris Ruining Rinaldo. But that's that's another podcast So I think that he is probably the best fit for your team. But you know you also have Santiago Santiago Solari who basically fucked up every opportunity. He Got Coaching Real Madrid. So you guys might just end up with him. You already got one Spaniard. Let's it's just get another Whatever arsenal moving on Julia Horovitz says when is the next merch. Drop great question Julia Lia. We have cousy right now which I plan on putting out for sending out to top fans and people who are phase of the show. I am just broke so I can't mail anything right now. Now I'm eating cereal for dinner But I also play on doing a drop so we're going to be doing a dad hats in the very near future so that's the only merchandise in days we have for now and we'll probably reissue of our shirts soon if you're interested in emerge D. M. S. l.. Give me more motivation to get some more merchandising stuff out and I appreciate everyone who takes pictures of emerging. Where's our shit? I try to make the highest shit that I would wear and all the softest highest quality material. So that's that's Merch talk Next question. Come from Jason Levin Seventeen he says who has gotten the clap more Arthur or Martin. ooh Martin Yeah the midfielder on Barcelona you got no allegedly as part about that. The best part about that story is if he did. In fact truly Contracted the gonorrhea virus. He will actually be Saad Line for like a month and a half because the medicine that they give you to treat gonorrhea pops up on the drug tests that the FIBA personnel. Give them so he wouldn't be able to play while taking that treatment so I think that's just quite genuinely annually hysterical that being said for sure. Arthur I've never fucked in the head. Gunnery thank God knock on some wood. I Yeah I it's you Arthur. It's you you've won this round I give you I have not had an STD. Either yet. nothing I won't but currently Arthur is in the lead for both of us Next question is from Justin underscore sanders. He says opinion. WHO's more important to the current success Manchester United Radford or Scotty mic sauce Martin? All Year Scotty mic sauce. I look I've been a marcus. Rationalized stand since day fucking one. But I've also been a Scotty MC sauce fan since Marino. I'm days his first fucking star and I was like. Oh that kids. He bleeds red. Like I know ninety nine point. Nine percent of the universe bleeds red bull. The world bleeds dread. But Scottie Scottie MC sauce God damnit he's united through and through and so's rashes but there's just an edge a fight. A hate. With Scotty make exhausted reminds me of an old school player. You Watch him on the field and and he is launching into tackles. He is fighting his way to get to that bowie sacrifice in his body. The online every single fucking time and that. I've look if you if you guys have listen to this podcast. For as long as we've been podcast and then you know that I think the fight in a team is the most important factor in a team and Scotty macos has that ship through and through Scott Him. Exhaust is a man among boys at United Year. There's also funny picture of him literally standing. He's very tall man and he's standing this standing like overtop all the players. He's trying to sneak them into a bar and he's like twenty three years old. His birthday was the Sunday after the Manchester. Dr. It'd be so what a great president because you know he got a president he pulled it out of his pocket. And would you look there. There is Kevin Broin a- and sterling all all up in his pocket they going to do Shit Scott Him. Exhaust for life got a mix. I like both of them. I'd probably go with the same answer next question. Uncomfortable Sweeney Hut Junior. He says one player. You Realistically Want Your team to sign in January again arsenals just chilling out the rest of the season. Whoever we get I hope he can chill out to A? I hope it's vibes cool. I hope he's end a chilling out with me and the boys. It's Yeah I just hope he gel. Well you know it doesn't you know. Just we're just. I'm just taking L. for the season just sixteen games but Marin who would you like for your team I want I want three days. I want to James in one. Jack I want James Madison. I'm one James Mcginn and I'm one JAG RELIG- I want a creative midfielder stat because we got the tack sort of functioning Washington right now Radford he's on a tear he's beating Rinaldo in every single stat at the same time or the same time period that Raza's Ashford has played a united then Rinaldo When he played out Renaldo at United so I wanNA creative midfielder to just feed marcus the ball again and again and again and genuinely cannot think of three better youth English prospects that those three players James Mcginn just a creative attacking midfielder who has an eye for goal? I love that Shit Jack Religion I mean the perfect the hands down unperfect number ten his movement on and off the bull has passing his touches shooting his finesse. I mean God dammit Jack. Religion is my favorite favor claire at the moment so I'm really hoping we get him and then easing hair. Look amazing hair. Oh my God damn out I am sexually the attracted to that man and finally James Madison also amazing hair also sexually attracted to that man Dan because his passing and I it's just fucking and sublime it's it's shifts kiss kissing that Astle Grou- wow you could make me do some horrible things to you James if you just pass it to me like if I'm running down the field and I look over and James Pass it to me. There's a nine out of ten chance that I'M GONNA go down on that man later that day because he just has the most beautiful the vision in soccer the most beautiful shots in soccer holy. Shit James Madison Jagger James Mcginn. GimMe all three right fucking now. Yep and whoever arsenal gets hope. You're cool next question. I love this bit. I'm trying to pull up the INSTAGRAM. Okay Rio Tom Underscore Purvis two-for-two says is it really Liverpool's year in quotations he says full capitals for the love of God say no Sorry Thom it is Liverpool's year. I don't WANNA call it early but I'm calling it early liberal liberal just give them the title now. I don't see them dropping as many points as they did last year to lose the title. I think it's pretty much wrapped up. Yeah kept what do you think. The percentage is at right now. I'd give Liverpool a ninety two percent. ooh Nine percent chance of winning. I was GONNA say eighty nine percent so I we're we're in the same boat. Yeah right there next to each other it would take some crazy shit like Liverpool literally has to like have the the entire squad injured like something like I'm not saying this had it would have to be something where a coach like you're in club falls ill or like the the entire squad. It's like just some something absolutely. There's no possible way in my mind that Liverpool loses the League next question cassidy. Underscored Lamu says does United Win over city mean anything for the rest of the season or is it just fluke Martin I mean I think that this week in a whole was absolutely excellent. Assault your and Manchester United. I mean to wins over to top. Six oppositions a win over two of the best coaches in the world unquestionably pat and Mo.. So I think that will will. It can do a whole lot to the confidence of of this united team going forward and at the same time really damage the city team going forward Lord. I mean pep hasn't had a super great Start to the campaign in. This certainly didn't help and we kind of already touched on it. I don't see this shipping on sank. The ship is saying he can't get too challenging Liverpool anymore. I mean fourteen damn points but at the same time. Manchester United is sentenced sixth. I think there are seven points off Chelsea right now. I'm not going to fact. Check that ship because we don't have facts tax here so I think that it can definitely be a turning point weather. The opportunities are there for four to be one. That's a whole nother question. But this is such an important match. This past Manchester Derby and such a pivotal point whether they improve from from here or whether they declined from here for both teams so I think it's certainly pivotal but I don't know how each team is going to bound from this because the soccer God's only know that information and I'm only a soccer demi-god exactly I felt as though I learned more about Manchester City falling apart in Manchester United's form. That makes sense. True true were you know where the wolves were the Manchester Wolves guys. We've gone for full circle. We're chasing our own tail. Say It's one thousand nine hundred ninety eight. I will say that is pretty bad ass name. Bright right I roll with it. Roll with it rock with it Next question comes from our twitter lads underscore podcast mattie nips at underdog underdog S. P. says is New Year's Eve the most overall Martin. What do you think? New Year's Eve overrated underrated I in dig New Year's you eve sold it because I hate every other holiday Like I fucking love.

Eagles/Giants recap, Seahawks/Cardinals + Steelers/Titans preview, Drawing A Blank, No Huddle

"Just like that. We made it to Friday the morning. Everyone. Welcome to first things first I'm John Wall you got nick right you got Brandon Marshall. You've got Kevin Wild. We got ourselves a phenomenal. Brandon. Guys Have Great Today You agree and what does that mean? WHAT ABOUT WILDEST Tie Breakers. Good Good. There's any credible schedule was football coming out this week in baseball talk about let's Cook assaulted the game in the NFC east last night giants eagles ACR- Razi ending to this one philly found themselves down eleven just over six minutes left Carson Wentz leading to fourth quarter touchdown drives and the eagles draw some fairly edge out big blue they get win number two they move into first place for now in the NFC east tears quarterback Carson Wentz after the wind. We said, Hey, I, mean, there wasn't a lot of time said, hey, there's enough time. There's enough time we just keep believing and just take it one at a time. Obviously, we weren't turbo on the ball two minute mode the rest of the game, but I mean the same thing that I echo every game when we're down hey, just keep believing just one play at a time and the big plays, GonNa hit it's going to happen and and John had the big one on that first drive and obviously Boston the second drive in guys just keep believing and keep rallying together and that's what it's GonNa. Take to win a lot of these ballgames. Brandon you look at last night's game was more about the eagles coming back or the near giants blowing it. Definitely about the eagles coming back I love watching Carson Wentz last night. It was one of those games where you tune in. You're like look at this division we've been crushing divisions the worst division in History of sports, and then you look at the records like ours is going to be the game. I really enjoyed the game. There were so many storylines I was thinking about. Wow. Now, going to turn into a three team division race you know now if the Giants win are we going to be talking about the giants potentially went into visit? You Got Carson Will Carson wins playing lights out at times. I thought as his playmakers made plays he got better he overcame often align play. You finally saw those young wide receivers step up and make some key plays down the stretch and don't other side yet. There was some of the giants blowing it, of course. Ingram he got to step up and beat a guy that they drafted him to be. He can easily be a premier tight in his league but in those big moments, he plays little. So I enjoy watching the game nick. There were so many storylines. I don't know about you but I was like man is this GonNa turn into three team race now but it did Evan Ingram Avenue Ingram will be the guy they drafted him to be when he's a Patriot next year after they get him for conditioning. took. This game is more about the eagles because let's be honest every game the giants play is going to either be wholly irrelevant or only relevant because of their opponent. The next time the giants are competitive team. They will have a new general manager and a new quarterback. I don't know wlove new coach or not but the giants don't for all intents and purposes matter in the twenty thousand football season the reason the eagles matter a little bit is because this year while it's Still, going to be something of a lost year whether they win the division or not is going to be a hinge easier for Carson wentz and last night was a great example of it. He did make some great place that that passed the Boston. Scott. Was a ten out of ten. It was absolutely elite perfect pass in any situation much less the situation where they were in, which was if you weren't watching the game, they had a first and goal from the two who? Kelsey gets facemask penalty to where all of a sudden the first and goal from the seventeen. Forty seconds. So time scores, situation and degree of difficulty of pass. That's perfect. But in the same game Carson, also through a horrifying interception, inexplicably that took points off the board, for Philly, and so what I'm interested in with Philadelphia wilds is. Who is the Real Carson wins last night we didn't get an answer, but you saw kind of the good and the bad of him. So to me, this was more about Philadelphia preventing their season from going totally off the rails and wins having a nice rallying moment like he had last week against Baltimore by the way they were down sixteen almost came all the way back and see if they can if they can salvage something from this season. Nikki, know that flight that Captain Sully landed in the East River Hudson got my rivers confused Lin-. If. That's what that game reminded me of if you've got off that flight and someone asked me like, Hey, how was it like? Well, I'll be honest with you. It ended really well, but it would a little hairy they're. Fantastic. Carson Wentz had one play, and if we can run, it could tanic. and. I'll quote you what Troy Aikman said. Well, watches play on the replay all of young quarterbacks watching on your couch. Do. This you will not finish the game as the quarterback so that I started to think. We're getting close to Jalen, hurts time here. This is insane shortly after this he through his league-leading tenth interception and next thing you know he wins the game. So this Guy Brennan you may have liked the roller coaster I don't think eagles fans do I think Carson Wentz needs to believe in himself a little less just do normal stuff dude stop walking dead. Absolutely absolute. Intend I can see if the game was on the line. Right. Yeah. Absolutely. Right. So we discuss Carson Wentz I'D BE REMISS IF I didn't discuss the opposing quarterback Daniel Jones and the play were talking morning Daniel Jones taken off in the third nothing book Green Grass in front of him. Literally nothing Danny dimes trips up just shy the goal line. He got eighty yards guy needed eighty-eight for the touchdown Patrick mahomes chimed in with this tweet. I mean I. can't even say anything because I would never be able to run that far either. Read News Daniel Jones Eighty. Yard Ron highlights or lowlights. Is definitely a low light but I'm like Patrick Mahomes I. I would never be in this position. This was not my game and I think that's probably why he fell because when you get an open field, the only thing you think about is while that guy on the other side that we were scouting, he ran a four to five. This guy ran a four three he's GonNa come get me just unfamiliar territory for guys like him even myself so just freaks you out when you're open space I actually did this like Monday night football against the jets Kamari chasing me and I just tripped I can I can get it I understand it. Nick I'm going with both I'm calling it a highlight low light maybe our high low light three other ones thinking right in your category one when John Maria Mrs Deng those amazing Mischa Ranta. Highlight low light to Kansas City. Bo Jackson strikes out breaks the bat over his knee highlight low light deal Jones joins the club now. All, right. So this is obviously low light. It's going to be on. New blooper reels or was that just a thing for me? If there are blooper reels, it's going to be on it for this year and honestly for the next few years of the NFL it's a mean now and a little window into how I was watching the game. I. My my daughter was with me even though it was late at night because she was sitting with me and my wife watching the debate, we had the game on mu and had the debate with the sound on I didn't have my eyes on the screen when this happened and my daughter says daddy that football player just did a somersault and I said what and I looked up and I. Play, of Daniel. Jones flipping about. So yeah, that's a low light for anybody ever and brandon once again, proving his worth as the nicest man on sports television like Oh don't feel bad I wanted this against Cromartie someone find me A. Guarantee it doesn't quite like this one from old betty drunk you know yeah. I didn't fall just ran out of bounds. General. Manager. As. Prison. Gracefully, liken to sell just leaped out of bounds again, Philly with the win, they now take over first place in the weakest division in the history of sports take it turns off some seahawks. Now is this the weekend they get handed their I wass the cardinals things. So we that's first things first. Let's see big NFC west showdown this weekend. Oh I am putting them on look at all these words I never saw Russell. Wilson, in the undefeated seahawks traveling Tarazona, take on Cuyler me and the cardinals it's going to be a fun one. So both quarterbacks coming into this season with the MVP hoax Ross appears to be running away with it though nineteen touchdowns three picks as his seahawks remain one of three undefeated teams left in the NFL and Brandon I know you love the seahawks this year don't count out cuyler Murray though do you think the offs should be on offset alert three and a half point favorites against the cardinals in this one? I'm not gonNA, count them out and you know what? I'm going to take this time to get ahead of the story. So yes, the seahawks should be scared. This team is dangerous. This team can come in and easily get this win I hate to say it but I'm GonNa try to get ahead of this story right now. Okay. Because I think the Seattle Seahawks to win the Super Bowl and I've been high on the seahawks from day one I still believe in them but this team is dangerous and then you gotta look at this dynamic on offense aside column Murray and this team can do it all. He can run the ball, they can run the ball he has. Hop He has Larry the old man wondered Larry. Fitzgerald s still getting it done and then on the defense side over there in Seattle they are the worst in the league. So when you have those guys on that side that that's so dynamic and so dangerous you have to be you have to be scared you have a little bit wary. Their mindset right. So guys come on. Let's go. This is not the week to do it. Brandon Brandon. My friend. You pick. SEATTLE. This story. On hold on. To. Win League MVP and yesterday on this very show. You made quite the bold proclamation that I think you thought I was going to let it slide but I was just waiting for today you said Seattle also has the best wide receiver in the NFL and came Should they ever be on upset alert the cardinals. Yeah. They look great against the cowboys cuyler and completed nine passes total in that game. So I believe the cardinals should be on the on upset alert. I believe the seahawks been playing with fire all year that Damn your loss, the Patriots came down to a yard. They needed a fourth down conversion, beat the cowboys and they should've lost to the vikings that fourth and inches place still giving me nightmares last leg of money. Line Barley dance lot vikings, offense of wine but the like so I agree Seattle should be on upset alert. Even I'm not as high on Arizona's some I am shocked that you're opening the possibility though that the I mean, what do you think it's GonNa. Take to beat Seattle fifty points I got to see the best almost movies quarterback. Yeah. Yeah. But yeah. But you also get diop who can also be in that conversation as the best wide receiver Calvin Murray he looks like. Is He Patrick mahomes mix of Michael Vick like this do does some things on field that we haven't seen before? He's taking guys two or three times in one play one move. So yes, I am a little nervous and Seattle should be nervous because when you see what they have on that defense aside, it's nothing it's nothing they have nobody to slow these guys down. This is a bad bad bad different. This is not the Seattle seahawks of old is not the Legion of boom. Richard. Sherman. Now, walking in that door to stop these guys, Brandon, Brandon Brandon we know that you're trying to have integrity here. You know that Seattle's defense gives up four hundred, seventy, one yards per game. Games they've given up two, thousand, three, hundred, fifty, six total yards. It's the most since when does anybody know bueller class maybe greatest show on turf maybe Tom Brady nope. Give team fifty, the nineteen fifty. When one and eleven and lost their final game to a team called the New York Yanks were a baseball team the New York Yankees beat though in Kyle and giving up three hundred, seventy yards. They're horrible. Horrible and poor Mike Nolan. Like why are you guys banging on me? Seattle got the worst events in the world there. So bad Dan with them and ride to the rescue to say their defense. So Brandon, we know that you picked them just being honest and don't try to take integrity like nick is going to stick with my pick no matter what. Wins this game. Who Wins this game? I'm just trying to get ahead of the story guys I the on sale. PUNK. Rock are. Monday, they moved the game Sunday night football. Arizona this is back to back Prime Time Games. It's just a perfect storm not every. When's the last time? A team went undefeated while right? Like this doesn't happen all the time I know you're team no. But before it was raining, it just doesn't happen. This is the game. This is go. This is this is. So. I think I think because I get the pull your little boxed in in fighting yourself out of the corner. So I understand what's happening to you. Got Into your head. You would pick Seattle but you would not be shocked if Arizona puts up four hundred and fifty yards, thirty eight points and wins. So I wanted I want to move the station forward in a different way because. I said, I think around week three you know the twenty twenty Seattle Seahawks are the twenty eighteen Kansas City chiefs. A team offense cannot be slowed down whose quarterback is going to win league MVP. Deepens ultimately will be their undoing. So my question to you is it are from the numbers wilds gave are these problems fixable? Is it as simple as Jamal? Adams hasn't been playing they gave up a boatload of picks forum. Let him get their ads in toughness it or is this as great as Russ in the offense has been in the back of your mind is someone that did big him to go to the Super Bowl? Is it a massive concern or is it just a slight concern? Knows a massive concern I mean can't fix this and there's a couple problems number one you just don't have the players there banged up they can't get pressure on the quarterback Arvin went down early in the season they already had some issues they let cloudy go and then on the back end. They do the same thing they since Pete Carroll has cal come into the NFL. He's done the same thing I still have notebooks notebooks of how to beat this this defense. So when you think about them going into this because they're coming off a bye, most teams sit back and say, okay, let's fix these issues. They can't fix them one because they don't have the personnel to he's not going to change his game every once in a while he made throw in the corner blitz every once in a while they may. Bring a safety but for the most part, their plane covered three zone, they're playing man, that's what they do and you you can. Literally you can make them do what you want him to do. If you go three by one on third down and you WANNA put Tyreek Hill at that three position pretty must extended tight in and take them on a on a big crossing route. He's GonNa. Be Matched up again to K J. right everyone in the NFL. Does it. So they're too predictable and they don't have the personnel. Maybe Antonio. You. Reek. Tina blew the top off. For. A long fast incredible Ron right up until the point where he stopped running and that my friends is the NFC east. This is first things first. Danny fumbles now Dan stumbles.

Danny dimes takes off nothing but green grass in front of him rights until he's no longer running paint the house Daniel. So Brandon Daniel Jones is eighty or. Not Touchdown Run touchdown run in stumble. Stumble was blank. Using. I didn't know if I should be Chan for his guy or embarrassed because I've been in his moment before on the big stage and I literally ran out of bounds Antonio for Mardi was chasing me so I get it but tony one miles per hour isn't joke my fastest time ever an NFL was actually when I played for the giants and I clocked twenty miles per hour this guy's faster than me but he got to work on his leg. He needs to come work out with you. Any Day. Right and they Take it back. Take back. That Daniel Jones is faster than you retract that he is right. Your numbers guy your numbers got numbers don't lie. He hit twenty one, point eight, I walk like twenty point. Four. Hit. The graph. Okay. Art. I. Wasn't might game I I'm going to admit something admit on television. Rattled right now Brandon Marshall saying dangerous faster than it has rattled me listen this is well stumbling the right actress and here's why. Let me tell you why because When he was going to the ground here I thought Oh, he's GonNa fall and fumbled but in fumbled these saved the back breaking fumble for the final play of the game. So it's a stumbling the right direction. He waited fifty nine and a half minutes in this game until he lost his birthday. which is one of the longest times he's ever gone in the game he's ever played. So we've fell, but he didn't fumble full to stumble in the right direction ones. I. One hundred percent of highlight with a little dash of low light in. It's just like when Bo Jackson struck out, break his own jam rant misses an awesome dunk who is still put it on his highlight reels. It's still a highlight just a little sprinkle lowlights. Okay. Okay. Let's move on to New England now where Jimmy G. Making his big return to Foxborough. First Time is nine or starting quarterback faces old team. But Brandon the player you're most excited to watch and we seven is blank. Coming off by a mistake at every week dangerous Russell Wilson Kamaz the MVP come I all every week nick I asked you when you tune into watch. NBA. Who are you tune into watch Lebron? James. He's the best in the business. So for me, Russell Wilson is not going to change guys. It's not GonNa Change. Okay, we'll mine does occasionally change. This week though player on most excited to watch in week seven snow. Mahomes snow game homes you check the forecast engaged. See. Poe expect a massive snowstorm. Last time they played the broncos in a snowstorm. All home siblings throw for three fifty on eighty percent completions to Vincent. Back fly over the police not knowing where to go tyreek hill streak streaking open. So Snow Mahomes is my answer Kevin Wild. Snow Mahomes I like snow mom I'm going with Brady and Gronk there back I touchdown the year last week if they get one more, they move into second place for hookups. Steve Young and Jerry Rice. I play still peyton manning and Marvin Harrison but they do get into the record books one more. So they're back big win for the box whenever they're gonNA play. All right. We had to Washington now Zeke and the cowboys coming in favored by half a point they can move into first place in the NFC east with a win I got two words for that division watered down. Brandon the team that should be upset alert and week seven is blank. seahawks versus the cardinals. Picking, them. Win The game but I WANNA use this time to tell my pick the Seattle Seahawks, my super bowl thick guys this. This cannot be attract game be on high alert. This team is dangerous they can do it all. Okay. So I WANNA use this time to this speak to the guys out there isn't that lowering Their way. All right soon. As I mentioned a few ago I'm not GonNa win the million dollars this week. So I've got to make it up elsewhere and I'm GONNA help you guys make some money as well. I'm going to give you dumb dip upset alert. All of Los Angeles could upset their opponents. You have the jags taking on the chargers they're getting seven and a half. This feels like a game where Gardner minhsiu plays well in Genesis obnoxious on Monday the jags plus seven. Even, the jags outright, and then the other La team Monday night. How about the rams taking on those underrated five in one Chicago Bears Rams favored by six I think the bears can win outright certainly cover the six. So America Jacksonville plus seven and a half against the chargers hit their second win of the year Gardner. Plays Well and the bears continue to be underrated in the bears have been uncovering machine for me this year. So both La Teams, charges Aram should be offset alert Kevin wilds. Who It is actually, it's the chiefs in Brandon remember how you were sparring with a vendor holyfield. Now imagine if you be Vander Holyfield. And then the. Fight some like random featherweight. You'll be very confident. That's what the Broncos came in and knocked out the heavyweight champion new. England patriots. Now, they gotta go play. You know the chiefs at home in a snowstorm I put. My comments would be sky high. So the chiefs on upset alert. Patriots. Onto New Orleans where drew brees tap target Michael Thomas, tweak a hamstring and practice yesterday it's been one heck of a season for him his status in the air for Sunday's game against the panthers. So Brandon, the team that most needs a win and week seven is blank. Boys and if any of you guys say anything different then I'm just you just lose all credibility with me the cowboys. Tough weekend. News. I mean, everybody's about the fire. I mean they they have to go out there and get it done and I'm also predicting that this is the week that they play a clean game that they don't throw the ball to the other team that Zeke doesn't fumble it and continue this streak and also predict that they're finally going to be able to understand covered three quarters whatever they're calling. I know that these guys are gonNA know their job. So I'm predicting that the cowboys play a clean game. Credibility that's not cowboys nick. Well credibility downloads. What team was this talk of the NFL this week what team skyrocketed up the rankings the most people are all of a sudden saying you know what? Not Just Division contender Super Bowl contenders the answer is the Tampa Bay Bucks, and if they end up losing to the raiders, the raiders who are dealing with good players lost to Cova don't even know when the game's going to be all of that progress they made by beaten up the packers evaporates. So while you might say how they're four and two, why do they need a win because what a loss would mean for them in the bigger picture of what they can accomplish this season? So my answer credibility gone evidently. The. Shot. Right Brandon I'm. GonNa. On to my credibility card here in say the browns and then battle of Ohio part to. Need this win or or. A little will hurt my credibility if Baker plays awesome and they lose probably okay too. So maybe that takes credibility advantage steelers he was hurt in the steelers have the number one pass rush in the NFL all the Bengals don't, and he got another week to heal. He's gotTa play well in Odell per se should probably keep his shoes on the whole game. Let's move on. Is it me or are all the teams in the NFC East's plane hot potato with the top spot courson wins in the. Own it but just barely after last night highlights first things verse next. Wednesday they Nye the raise battled back to tie the world series at one game apiece, and that sets the stage for a pivotal game three with the dodgers tonight seven thirty eastern four, thirty Pacific only on Fox on the Fox sports APP. Nick what the dodgers need to do to get the win tonight. They're going to get the win. buehler's going GonNa Pitch Great is going to be afforded Jew dodgers win out baseball winters all world series. Let's go dodgers money line and the under the under the total for this game is eight runs. I don't think it'll be more than six scored. Mueller goes seven innings to earn pitches. Great. Dodger bullpen takes care of the rest. Mookie ben scores run very, very specific preview prediction forty two dodgers to take too one seriously. Etta stolen these. Never heard a more specific prediction in my entire life. Five Years of broadcasting backdrop story. This morning Thursday night football giants eagles crazy ending giants with an eleven point lead with six minutes to go seems like a pretty safely and unless you play in the NFC eastwards literally anyone's division last Night Eagle stepped. Carson Wentz. To fourth quarter touchdown drives, Eagles win. But just barely they get win number two, they move into first place for now in the NFC East and here is Carson Wentz after the win. We said I mean there wasn't a lot of time but he said there's enough time. There's enough time we gotta just keep believing and just take one plate time. Obviously, we were in turbo on the ball to minute mode on the rest of the game but I mean the same thing that I go every game when we're down hey, just keep believing just one play time and the big plays GonNa hit it's going to happen and John had the big one on that first drive and obviously Boston the second drive in guys just keep believing and keep rallying together and that's what it's GonNa take to win a lot of these ballgames. O.. Believing to win in this division Michael Vick joins us now this morning, Mike Good Morning. Thanks for being with us. Let's start. There was last night more about the eagles coming back or about the giants blowing it. It was a little bit of both I think the eagles are they they needed to do at the moment of truth man. You know this being in. Another situation where they was down and when we got probably thought that they were not going to come back and win a football game and I'm saying to myself this is going to be another disaster and more news talk about Samara thing. Taps. The way he's supposed to and You know he leaves the big drives, two big drives and the defense stepped up when I think. For the New York giants this'll be a learning experience for them to learn how to keep league and a defensive a big out out to go out and get stops when they needed the most. So I think the Philadelphia Eagles, they certainly put themselves in a position even with everything going on guys getting hurt the office line still being banged up guys going in and out of their causing westbound the way to bring the same. And I thought it was a good win for the franchise last night. Your Mike, this was definitely more about the eagles because they're more relevant and I thought the same thing when I was watching the game I'm sitting here I'm like I'm really enjoying this because when you when you approach this game, you're thinking about well the visit it's a bad division. It's a terrible division and you look at their records like audit they're not good teams and then you turn on a game and there's actually some good football played but I thought about that as well. I'm like so if they lose this game that means now we're talking more about the giants who's not playing well. And now it's a three teen division race. That's what we're going to be talking about and I just didn't want to get into the storyline. So I thought the same thing I thought Carson wentz overcame his offense a line play. They'd been banged up all year and finally he has got some help from his younger wide receivers in the more plays that they may the better he looked if you go back to week one week two. He was press and he still pressed a little bit this past game. But his feet was horrible in a pocket, his arm to and look good and last night you can see him look like a golfer sit in the pocket take his time feet look great arm look Chris. So I thought Carson Wentz progressing got better. He didn't do too much in that second half and that's why they got to win because he's a stay police. I want to ask you a question. Big. Because with certainly with wins and a little bit with Daniel Jones's well, what you have is a quarterback that if I just showed you their ten best throws, you would say, oh, that can be a great quarterback in this league. But if I showed you their ten biggest mistakes, you would say, Oh, well, that never gonNa make it when you are evaluating quarterbacks, what to you gives you more competence the for lack of a better example, the Teddy Bridgewater. where it's the great throws aren't that great but the mistakes are minimal. You know what? I mean a guy who's not gonNA wreck the car not GonNa while you with anything. Or the more Carson Wentz Lane where it's like Oh, my God that throw Boston Scott was amazing and then on the other hand, it's like, oh, my God that interception in the endzone, how do you make that mistake? So like for you when you're evaluating quarterback what gives you more confidence. Had a plan the moment in a moment of truth when you know the game is online. When you know they're facing the deficit when they got to come back. Value with him throughout the course of the game. What it is more. So impresses on when I'm paying close attention to the decision making. You know audie rattle audie poise on have what it takes an internally. To to bring the team back, a candidate can stay in it and not get antsy and watching Carson Wentz last night. It was mixed emotion las same boss Flan. Cross body back across the field you know I, say some. Some earned those and then. I see him amazing plays, and so I'm watching and not really getting a feel of what's really happening now, what's taken place but then in the end, they find a way to win the game looking at cost of like you know this is how it needs to be done wasn't pretty which you got it done. So you know I'm looking at a little bit of everything, but I think what has sustained out how the decisions that they make you know in the moment. Yeah. I'M GONNA go another way. Mike. I'M GONNA put a moratorium on Carson Wentz. Any Patrick Mahomes highlights or any? Michael. Vick highlights good too little bit when I look up a recipe. I'M GONNA try to cook I'm like, wow, that's how you chopping onion I'm going to do that and blocked it, and then you take seriously like I'm GonNa cut my fingers off. This was a play in the second quarter and Mike. This is what Troy Aikman said all young quarterbacks watching on your couch don't do this you will. Gain as the quarterback. LONCAR's I. Think the guy is believes in himself a little too much and I know the. Offense of lying and maybe he has to do this. But to me I think he just needs to throw the ball away and stop trying to make things happen Mike. Brand new said this this is costing stressing and when you got the media Berlin down on your, we got us talking about you each and every week and trying to get the best out of you and you're gonNA. Try to get the best out of yourself and I understand costs moments but like drag last night you still have to be cautious in like I said, you have to still be able to be poised to make good decisions in when the team needs you the most in those are desperate situations but that's when you gotTa Bitch Your Best. That's why you'll get paid the big bucks. And Wild, this is a game is a great example as to why I know you give me a hard time about it why I try not to be so results based in how we evaluate players and teams based just on. Well, they won in the end because Carson Wentz. His best moment best throw of the night was that passed to Boston. Scott. It was a ten out of ten. But. He does not have the opportunity to make that throw and instead we are talking about what a disaster of a game this was for Philly Evan Ingram can make a catch that every player in the NFL would make outside of maybe Tom Brady and the super bowl up perfectly thrown pass right in front of his hand drops and so like I just I don't. So I think we've got to be fair and honest about Philly here you do feel good about the fact they found a way to win. But that was in part because the giants created another new way to lose brandon and so when you were saying, you know you're glad we're not talking about it being three team race I think it's still a four-team race Jenna. Even Washington still alive. Damn. Your beat, the giants last week came down to less than nobody's got more than two wins like none of these Janet do I. Believe are going to go on a sustained winning streak here So that's what I was, I was GonNa ask you before we move on I want to ask you about Daniel Jones, I was gonna say after last night does anyone suddenly feel okay. Now now I feel more confident in the eagles and because of what Nick just said because it was a little more of what the giants gave away than what the Eagles did maybe a little bit of both I think we're in the exact same spot that we were before they even played the game but let's talk about the other quarterback on the opposing team Daniel Jones. We got a little Michael Vick experience here. Michael. We need your take on Dean Jones. Eighty Yard Ron. Should it in eighty eight yards John run if not literally nothing that tripped him up shy the end zone. Please my friend break this down for us. Well I. Just had a funny feeling that this is going to happen before it even happened in. Jones. was about a sustained in the open field. You know you gotTa Defensive Flow One way and he had been lane was the Mike with big experienced about eight seconds, and then all of a sudden turn into. Spring. And you know what? Drive. To Talk All day today. Daily screen. Experience scruple. Score this would have been a terrible terrible terrible moment for him at had been so much worse. But look Mike I I'm guessing that you've never done this before because your guy that actually experienced this over and over and over again always was in open Phil for me. I never was in the open field that wasn't my game there was an off season. Where I actually had to work on picking up my legs and actually running with great form because there was times where I was like I'm running like a duck right now and I will always get caught. So I spent the entire offseason trying to do this because I wasn't a fast guy like you in some of these other amazing athletes in the NFL. Did. Faster. I I. Wasn't alone I wasn't a long distance runner so Honestly. I can understand how dangle Jones couldn't complete this run because that's like the. Is No. Interest. To Nicer Greg Vic Yokota Round at the forty and moonwalked into the zone and nobody would have caught him and he wouldn't have fallen down vic me. I was more short bursts. Taiwan. Jones tough one for the giant giant by the way now, one in six. So seahawks looking to remain undefeated this weekend, the cardinals have other plans. Nick will tell you why Seattle isn't a locked walk away winter next first things first. Driving around the no huddle, the Ravens worked out desk Brian's and are expected to sign him to the practice squad for planning purposes. The last time Dez Bryant played a game December of twenty seventeen branding candesartan factor for Lamar Jackson the Ravens. Yes, now he can. But when they brought him in a couple months back he wasn't ready. He didn't have the pop he didn't have the quickness. In his mid range game he he took too long to get out of his cuts rows the where he's supposed to get out in three steps. He's getting on and five, and since then he's been working day after day after day I've been tracking this guy he has his pop back. He also getting in and out of his brakes this is a guy that can go out there and catch the back shoulder and this is what that offense is missing when you when you. Have a running game. All you need is that guy that can be one on one coverage, the slant route, the Stop route the goes you guys hear me say that over and over again, he is the traditional x receiver now like how to easing them in with this practice squad approach because he definitely needs to get back into a rhythm, but I'm not expecting a lot but I do expect him to get three or four plays in a game where he can definitely contribute. Will the Ravens also made a trade with the Vikings yesterday acquiring pass rusher Yanni can gawk way for two draft picks and one of only six players with at least eight sacks and fourteen quarterback needs to the last four seasons. It's impressive. Nick would Jamaica the Ravens adding and? It's another great move for Baltimore and all explain why in just a moment but I just quickly respond to Brandon because I'm not as high as he is. Still in his years out of football has his reflexes sharp brandon's are to wear mid take he can bat away small. Camera View and just continue delivering. Brandon's has lost a single step. Dessus same thing he's going to be a big addition provoked the war now on the way mood in seriousness. The Ravens in the last thirteen months warned sharp pointed this out yesterday have totally remade their defense. They had Derek Wolfe Fillets Campbell and now Yongin got. To the defensive line, they added eljay Fort and drafted Patrick Wind the linebacking core and they added Marcus Peters midseason last year to the secondary that six new defensive starters added in the last thirteen months I do wonder. If the Ravens after the chiefs whooping them and then seeing okay if the approach is going to be you know rush three or four drops seven against Kansas City if they said, well, that's what we're GonNa do we need to add to that rush by another guy who can get home without a blitz and in Goch ways certainly that I mean this is a great great move for Richard Richer adding a tremendous player. Yeah. Ravens shoring up and already great defense talking to begin to see West showdown this weekend, Russell Wilson, and those undefeated seahawks traveling to Arizona taken on Kyle Murray in the cardinals Ross your league leader for Mvp Nineteen touchdowns only three picks and a new baby that he and cr just named when I mean if that is not the recipe for MVP then have another baby and named the Baby Mvp Mike Vick bathrooms now Mike should the seahawks beyond upset alert as favorites against the cardinals this weekend. Absolutely, they should be on upset alert because calumnies. Looking at a guy who? WHO's getting better with each and every step were more confidence when each and every winter each and every day and I had a chance to speak to cal over the summer and I knew he was going to be waiting turned out to be this season so far. And you know when you play against a guy like Russell, Wilson somebody who looks like you plays like you you you probably grew up. Wanting and be like you know Russell Wilson at emulate his game out the him. He looks like him. So it's going to be a lot of motivation born citizen game to beat the guy that you you grew up. You know is as a player and and I could see you know so many similarities on both sides. So it'll be motivated because football and saint mothballs offensively hard thing Calamari could beat. Any team in the league. Yeah Mike I'm with you absolutely they should be upset alert and guys got to remember this is my pick the I picked the Seattle seahawks to go to the Super Bowl but this is a scary game I went and call it a trap game for them because Pete Carroll Russell Wilson and knows guys on the defense aside like those linebackers they do a great job of approach in every day every week the same like they're trying to knock your head off they're trying to put up forty points like they do a great job throughout the week of preparing so as not attract game but it's a game when you look at the matchup, it gets a little funky they. Have the worst defense in the NFL and they're giving up so many yards and back in, and they don't often society you're going he gets a top five offense that can do it all the quarterback in rushmore hundred yards, and then you have the Orangerie Hopkins where do just throw it anywhere on the field and he'll probably come down with it and then old man Larry Fitzgerald Dome would he does a run game in also going down the middle so for that reason, I, think the Seattle seahawks needs to be on alert but think about this, we're talking about Russell Wilson an MVP, you just mentioned Jenner and we talked about it every single time and I know always do. Isn't this game where he's going to show why he's the MVP he's this game where he put up, he'll have to put up thirty, five forty points. This is the game where he's going to have to do it again, those two minute drills. So I'm excited to watch Russell Wilson step into this moment. Now, watch this there's a lot of guys you talked about it earlier nick ask you the question. Well, what are you looking at when you evaluate a quarterback? You talked about those pressure moments Russell Wilson there's nobody better, and this is what greatness is on display because you're. Going to see Russel Wilson rise to the occasion. He just does it. He embraces it I remember one day asked him. Of course I'm like Russ. So tell me about this two minute thing like man, like why do you want to be a two minute all the time brandon that's where greatness happens. He said if every game it came down to a two minute drive, I will sign off on that this dude is special. So. Here's the you're right about that brand and then that the seahawks. Over. The last few years have broken all the statistical models on how often you're supposed to win close games. They are the best close late team in the league, and that's because of three that's because of Russell Wilson and by the way he's been that guy since the moment he walked into the League, his is second year in the League won the Super Bowl everybody knows. That his first year in the League he was down twenty points at halftime of a playoff game and with ninety seconds left against the Falcons his team had the lead like a he brought them all the way back in that game before field feel like he has been a consistent big game big spot performer from the word go whether it's an NC state, Wisconsin or Seattle. But your point I think is the best one of this is one of the reasons he such favorite to win the MVP and wild. You talked about this earlier this week is because he they're never taken the air out of the bowl they always gotta go score they always gotta keep putting up points it's y gambling alert my favorite bed of. The week. This week is over fifty six cardinal seals because I think this is a thirty five, thirty, one game at a minimum I don't think either team's going to be able to stop the other one but wild I wanNA throw something to you real quick because you said some Brady off the air that not a lot of people have been mentioning. Quietly in that cowboys game cuyler struggled a bit. He was unbelievable with his legs the cardinals scored thirty eight points, but he was nine of twenty, four passing. I think I think Martin, we're GONNA win. But for the cardinals to win cuyler got to snap back into around that sixty five seventy percent completions against the very poorest. Seattle Secondary. Yeah he completed thirty seven percent of his passes for one hundred and eighty eight yards. So this is the rare Kevin Wilde's. Championship Belt Game here's the theory Nick Sometimes, people get labeled Clip Kingsbury. For example, offensive genius. Okay Buddy. You don't get to keep the championship belt throughout your entire life. You just put up a stinker in Dallas who has a terrible. Defense now you got Seattle who's given up three hundred seventy yards. You gotta put your title belt on the line here buddy if cuyler murray throws for less than. Yards against a defense that's given up four, hundred, seventy, one, yard soda. You lose your belt, you lose your belt and you know what? Then lose your mansion to you gotta use move into a small condo and in Phoenix. Against a defense that has given up almost five hundred yards and not put to the metal and still leave me like I'm still an offensive genius. You GotTa do something brand. It's a big Achilles heel for this team. It's half a team in the steelers great offense defense. All these teams are great offense defense. Great Offense Defense Seattle the worst defense in the league and we're like Oh. You're probably go to the super bowl with the worst deep. SEATTLE. Is. Going to get. Here and no one should be surprised. I listen I. Don't think they'll get exposed because of what they have on offense aside. But you you're one hundred percent, right? They can't get after the quarterback they have no pass rush. On. The back in they have five or six guys in and out of that line there beat up back there and then also their predictable Mike you know this you play against Seattle they're running the same defense that you against you can pull out your your two thousand and ten scouting report when you play against the Seattle seahawks and I don't even know if you've played against. Them in two thousand ten. But I'm saying that because you pull it out and you're like well three by one they do this by two. They do this if it's first down seventy five percent like you know what the Seattle seahawks and you can actually you can you can put them in a position you want them to, and that's what the good offense is. Do I think Kotler Murray led offense. We'll do a phenomenal job against them because they are banged up and they don't have the personnel. Seattle, one of three undefeated teams in the League. The other two undefeated going head to head Sunday titans and steelers can big Ben Follow up last week's big win with another big game I call that a big tease. It's next. This is first things first. For wwe Thunderdome special airing of smackdown on F s one Roman reigns to. So the final stop before they're Helena sell I quit batch in all new smackdown live at eight eastern five Pacific on F S One. Fired up. All Right Mike Vick back with us we're talking Sundays AFC showdown. On one side the undefeated steelers on the other side, the undefeated titans this just the fifth time undefeated teams faced off this late this season guys get this. The winners of those previous four match ops went on to the Super Bowl about that. Brandon. Who Wins this pivotal agency matchup 'cause they undefeated steelers worked. The steelers win Jenna that front seven and Nick loves them. He thinks they're number one in the league I think they're number two behind. The Tampa. Bay Bucks but this front seven does it all they stop the run which means what you're. GonNa Stop Derrick Henry and then also in the past game, they get to the quarterback because of their blitz they create so many one one on ones. This front seven is unbelievable. They're nasty and when you think about what the titans do well and running the ball and setting up everything else there comes a time when you play these games and dinners games within games and I had some nasty defenses that I played on and Defensive Lineman Day, take it personal if. You rush over one hundred yards on them. They take it personal Mike Vick. You know this if these guys can get going, you're going to see the Pittsburgh steelers getting frustrated getting mad but I don't think that's going to be the case here I. Think this front seven dominates the titans especially with their tackled Taylor just going down would acl I'm just going to be all bad for the titans in. This is a team that I really like I like the titans like what they have their contender my book, but they're not going to get it done against Pittsburgh Mike. The steelers definitely win it is one game the steelers get out for so far. It'd be this game and the one thing I know about the Pittsburgh steelers the Mike Tomlin when you have a team that comes in and their offense is predicated on running the football, you don't as they the Tennessee Titans try to Derrick Henry they get up for games like this librarian is said the front seven you know they'll be ready for Derrick Henry you know they'll be. Looking to smack him around all day and get the ball back to the office in on offense side of the ball. You know they got some weapons emerging a tastes Clayton. Deontay Dawson, and big being is usually guys directly. So with the office click in the run game clicking. Big Plan some as becks football and being happy back I don't see the Tennessee titans having a chance to win this game primarily because they're going to stop Derek Cambrian to run game Tennessee Titans, and that'll lead survey big else. Okay. So These two teams are remarkably similar as far as what their profile is leading into this game. It's not just the both five and. Both of them have four wins against horrible opposition have played one game against a good team and whooped that good team for Pittsburgh. It was whooping Cleveland a four win team and for the Titans it was whooping buffalo of four win team. Both of them recently lost a key player to injury for the steelers it was inside linebacker Devin Bush whose take on that Ryan Shazia role and for the titans left tackle Taylor in the Wong. So and both of these teams right now are built theoretically we think about them as being built around their defense but I don't think the Titans Are. And I. I'm not to show you a blind reveal here I promise it's real, but I don't believe it. Made. I don't believe it. Okay. Here's two quarterbacks I think we both agree those are MVP caliber numbers. Let show who those are. One of them is literally Aaron Rodgers the last time Hugh one league MVP. And the other one is Ryan tannehill since he took over as the starting quarterback for the titans look at his numbers seventy, percent, thirty, five or seven. Reception. It's unbelievable. So wild at some point, I'm going to have to just believe that Ryan Tannehill was always good and that Adam gaze is just so historically bad that what we saw from him in Miami is the fault of the coach because I wear now a full season's worth the starts and he's putting up Prime Aaron Rodgers numbers. If that's who tannehill actually is then the titans not only can compete with the steelers book can beat them wilds. Of the titans also have a sneaky bad defense, it's so bad. Then practice Mike variables like you know what suit me up I'M GONNA have to get in and be hands on on the defense videos of him like with Eric Lebron's Jersey on like all right I'll be at select. Your guys they've got their averaging giving up five point one rushing attempts no yards per rush come on wild thirtieth in the league their last in third down conversions or last stop stopping things in the red zone it they're really bad now on the flip side Brandon, your steelers who I know you have a totally you know neutral analysis just so happens to your from Pittsburgh but the divas not only good there. Historically good look they're getting to the quarterback they're causing turnovers. They're as good as the eighty five giants and I know you can look at the stats but I also want you to pay attention to bill. Belgians Red Starter. Jacket I'm headed to Ebay right after the show. So I. I agree with you. I think the titans are going to get rolled year I. Think the steelers defense even better than people realize. Defense have about. Six or seven first round pick not mistaken and. You know they big used correctly from from bud treats the train for maker Hispanic. Guy Who I think really helped catapult this defense and being one of the top defense in Australia Tyler model back there all again that you give Mike Tomlin that Saint Nice a gray safety that he used them the right. At just makes the defense even better. So you know this guy is all over for the Pittsburgh steelers who can run from sideline to sideline and make plays all over the field. Yeah, I agree with you Mike on a defensive side that front seven we were talking about it you know and we may be talking a little too much but hayward in to it what do pre those guys get it done in a run game in the past game and that's rear. Sometimes guys want to get after the quarterback. That's all they WANNA do and they stand down when it comes to the run but an offense assigning in that video, you just show while interesting because that is their factor is coach that coaches a hell of a job. He's wanted smart coaches out there and it's definitely been highlighted since last week in those those key descendants he may to. Get his team down there. But this is a point of emphasis. This is what is important and that he's out there having fun but he knows that he has been coming in he has played pool who might who you just talked about this is how to getting it done in the passing game to run the ball, they're able to average five yards a carry. So what does that create one on one ups Big Ben Love, stone of back shoulder. So what he's doing is reiterating to his team, they cannot beat us this way. DB's you have to play big this week you can't do this. So I love coach Ray to me he isn't x factor because how he coaches. Go ahead John. I just want to ask you this. We talked about the steelers front seven we talked about the titans and the lack of defense and all of the talk about Tannahill. Are we all sold now on Big Ben has Big Ben turned the corner he was a little rusty when he started a we now all confident we're getting the Big Ben from years past. Can Run this offense right up to the Super, BOWL saw everybody else. Answering it. Listen. I said before the year if big been doesn't show his age and the ill effects of the injury, this could be the second best team in the AFC thus far he's check both those boxes he's looks good. The deepens has been even better than last year, and that's why I believe right now the steelers have leapfrogged the Ravens as the chiefs biggest competition in the AFC, but it's a long season for an old man and just need to see Big Ben playing in. November December before I told those concerns to rest but right now right now, Gina, I believe the steelers are the second best team in the entire. Nfl I, think they've shown that through five five games of the season. That is a big admission from Nick, I two teens who wish they were playing the way the titans and steelers are niners and patriots Jimmy Garoppolo making his grand return to England for the first time since getting shipped out storylines a plenty next first things first. Let's Patriots, new. England. Coming off a shocking upset loss to the Broncos last week Cam Newton and that patriots offense. Nothing going and that's being generous. They now say in third place in Germany ABC's with an old friend come into town Sunday not wild. He's not coming to town close though Jimmy Garoppolo. Jimmy Garoppolo Kevin Wild same jaw line but different works than. The do for a living Mike Vick joins us now Mike. Let's get serious. You expect came in the Patriots offense to finally start clicking Sunday against this forty niners defense. Is it all going now come together for them? While I'm expecting it's all coming together I think. The pandemic affect. Head has effect on the knowing the Patriots. Last week didn't have guys practicing guys and now the lineup Kim probably wasn't as healthy. As he probably has this week and we expect them to still go out and beat the Denver Broncos same and it didn't happen on the other hand the San. Francisco Forty niners is defense. They'll have some confidence after beating the rams last week and it's going to take a complete effort not just from camp, but from everybody. To pull the thing together and find a way to beat the forty nine is this week I I expect other guys step up. It's not going to be easy game, but this is the time but the New England patriots to. Rip. Walker Cup wins you know maybe two three wins and this is the time of the season when you get rolling. Stone to compile some win. So this is the perfect game, but it's not going to be easy by any stretch, but I'm looking at camp to show us what he showed us and we want to week two when he came out lights out and had some great games so. This is going to be on campus is going to be on that tile offense defense has played well, but they got to put it all together. Yeah I agree absolutely is the game in for one reason I'll be quick here. Nick it comes down to this. This is it. The strength versus the weakness. On offense and New England they're number two rushing team in the league. They can get it done there. San Francisco, they can't stop the run. The Interior D. Line is just average at best. So for me when I look at what Josh mcdaniels ause is like, how do we exploited this team's weakness expect them to run the ball over and over and over again expect Cam Newton and be on quarterback draws expect them to have so many different types of formations and emotions that do the same. Exact thing is going to be the same thing run right run left right up the middle interior defense and line in San Francisco? They just get it done and you can also say under so I, think they get it. They get back on track offensively I think Cam Newton looks better. I. Think they protect Cam Newton when he does pass I like this matchup for the New England Patriots. Okay I do too. But I would be lying to you if I told you I wasn't slightly nervous. And I'm not going to hit the panic button if we lose this game because to be honest with you as a Patriots Fan Myo entire life, I threw my panic button away in when we got bill bell check and I need to get a new one panic, it was a animal. Digital panic button. So here's the thing I'm running out of excuses guys. If we don't win, we lost to the seahawks by yard I was like we lost a yard then the jv peach patriots loss of the chiefs I'm like fine and we had the covert chaos last week and I pay. If we lose this one I'm going to go to Home Depot and in a panic button but I don't think we do nick because I assume that bill bell check takes out his notebook on Jimmy G. and he said so many nice things about Jimmy G. But if he goes to the back of the notebook, it's like You get you get the evil genius, Bill Belichick you do have. To me and I don't say them publicly but I hold them in a cauldron and it's very halloween theme and that part of his office nick. So I assume ballot check will know the secrets to get into Jimmy Jesus. Ed. So that, that to me is the angle of this game I know it says on the screen do I expect Cam and the pats offense to start clicking. My honest answer is I'm not sure you guys know I believe in Cam but I also, I don't think we really have totally worked in and I don't think we really know how much actually getting Cova da affects different guys to cross sports for a moment everyone crushed Russell Westbrook first performance in the bubble how? Much of that was the fact that he had Govan I don't know I. Don't know the answer to that. Some guys certainly get as symptomatic they're fine and they keep it moving. So I don't know what is going to look like I do expect though Jenner, the Patriots defense and those defensive coaches most notably Bella check to know exactly how to Ronald. Jimmy Garoppolo and I think that is the key to this football game and the Patriots getting back to five hundred gentle. All. Right. Well, then let's shift gears to another former New England quarterback Thomas. Edward, Patrick Brady box quarterback was asked yesterday member this about not shaky nick foles hand following the week five. In Chicago you know the one with Tom Forgot the downs. Here's Tom when he had to say listen. Is there a reason why you didn't seek Nick foles after the bears game on headed for the Locker Room? There's been some folks wondering about that and I want to clear that out. I. Think it feels a hell of a player and a super bowl champion I. Don't know when reason another why wouldn't do that but I. Don't know some sometimes I've run off the field I haven't. Sometimes, if I have a personal relationship. like I have withdrew in just in And Aaron over the years. I don't know I don't think it's ending in particular than I have great admiration for Nick and. He's a hell of a player up to a great start. So, neck I'll start. With. Tom Brady. SELLIN. So do you guys know? I bend over backwards to give Tom Brady the benefit of the doubt. So in Tom's defense. And he maybe didn't want say there he might have thought it was halftime. And so I. If. That's not. Even. Our Guy Michael Vick the next day and Vic our doors Tom said come on man. That's a bad look. And the way I think you come pound that bad look. is by not being forthright about it. I don't think he would have said yet listen here's the deal. I hate losing I was mad. The way we lost and I wasn't thinking about Nick I just wanted to get the locker room, and then after the fact I realized I didn't even I didn't even go shake his hand and you know I sent him a text, my bad I, it's not on the show then no I mean this is an older story. It's on the show because somehow he hadn't been asked about it but then Jeremy Mike, he's not being forthright there. BE REMINDS ME OF A. College Basketball Coach K. has an amazing tendency of the rare times. Duke loses those postgame handshake for like this, but a duke wins especially, if it's a heartbreaker for the other team, coach k. will lean in and give the other coach a dissertation on what happened and it's like that's not exactly incidental and so. It is hard to believe Brady's explanation and I. Don't know why he didn't just say, Hey, man I was angry I was upset. I wanted to get the hell out of there and I'll let my work speak for itself because I don't buy what he's selling their Mike. Yeah I think Tom Brady's facial expression and. It was interviewed. Kinda. Says it all now I'm not gonNA go off the cuff say something that I don't know what in just looking at it at first glance. Tom Like you know. At the end every game every quarterback finds a way to opposing team quarterback shake their hand ought to give some form of a congratulations can go either way. And he looks homages went through a lot. He got that game by making any excuses got beat up de game. They know he had the fourth quarter. Incident where you know he thought it was you know I Thought it was, slow down. You know can't really give him a pass that. I think that that was something that he was thinking about like right there and then you can get. Out of whack, you can get this bobby lady because no, you just made a mistake that's going to be talked about for a long time, and then you've got to face the music. So I just. Place but still a fine, you still gotta find it. You can still trying to take. His hand congratulated and get batted that didn't happen. So we can't give someone pass on that man you gotta be right though you know what? Brandon said it multiple times you know what? I don't like halfway measures I don't like sometimes. Sometimes I don't go. They'll go. Right, and finds Tom Brady back. You know what? No more shaking period ever again never gonNA show Weiner. Not, only not only final bell to the to the entire next to the entire season never shaken hands. I think that would be savvy move. Then just being like I forgot about him I forgot there was a quarterback on the other team. I agree with you guys, I agree with you guys and Nick. This is the only Tom Brady take that I agree with you on for some reason you. Away to crush Tom Brady. Up but this one, there's a lot of validity brought behind what you're saying like. Tom. Brady knew exactly what he was doing. Tom Brady, just needs. To sit up and admit that he can be a sore losers at a sore loser at Tom Heaton come on. We know that we've seen you when out of historical high, you barely lose in the time and you said this the time that you lose, you have shown that you just you don't take it well. So Tom Have you just lean into it and like your guys. This is one of my weaknesses. Super Supermodel wife you gotTA TB twelve you're writing books who launched and supplemented Zach I. Mean you want six super bowls come on everybody has a weakness. This is your. racy would human. Human is him and we wouldn't be killing him for it, and the only thing you said that I take exception to is us that I'm always looking for ways to kill Tom Brady guys. I'm the only one that gave him a plausible explanation aid as in play Jinnah he got it was halftime and you don't. Talk. So. gave him an all. And I'm the Tom Brady. Once, again. To help the guy out Jana. Michael Thank you. For hanging out today enjoy a great weekend of football still to come can kyle Murray and the cardinals. Seattle's perfect. Start on Sunday we'll bring it down next first things first. Wednesday night the raise battled back to tie the world series at a game apiece set the stage for pivotal game three with the dodgers, and that takes tonight at seven, thirty, eastern four, thirty Pacific only on Fox and the Fox is now time for stories to start your morning sponsored by Ram trucks built to serve and we're talking the big. NFC. Showdown this weekend Russell Wilson NFC West Showdown Russell Wilson in the defeated seahawks traveling to Arizona to take on Cuyler Murray and the cards both quarterbacks came into the season with MVP hopes Brandon I'll start with you should the seahawks beyond upset alert as road favorites against the cards They should and this is an interesting game yesterday. Nick. You rolled your tears in the NFL and you had tiered said flaw but dangerous and there was two teams that I thought should been sort of going to the next here. The first team was the rams I think team is doing something they haven't done since the year they they went on that run. In running the football way they yard best in franchise history, and then the other team was the cardinals to me. This is that team at the end of the year in December we're going to look like man, they won how many games in a row they just want six hundred. Team. There's always that team there's always as Cinderella team last year was the Tennessee Titans. This year I truly believe it could be this team. They're dangerous sensitively taught five office and they can do it on her running back their quarterback. Excuse me he can go one hundred yards and then you have d. hop who could be one of the best receiver in the league all you gotTa. Do is throw it up to him. He's adult in on that defense. Aside, that's not the Legion of boom that Richard Sherman is not there. We know that those guys aren't coming back in in that building and helping this historical bed defense. They are the worst not only in the. NFL. But they're probably going to do something while the NFL has never seen before they're so bad. So. When you look at this I don't think it's a trap game because the Seattle seahawks and Pete Carroll do a great job of getting their teams prepped and ready to roll. Everyday is the same but this matchup is interesting one and the last thing here nick is MVP. This whole MVP discussion isn't this the game for Russell Wilson show us that he is the MVP because you got. To think about this, potentially being a shootout, putting up thirty five points, forty points going down to the last minute again. But historically, he's he is the best in the NFL, in NFL history actually to do it to come those comeback wins Games online getting it done. But this is the time for Russell Wilson, that solidified that I am MVP because it's not going to be easy game. Okay. Okay. So I agree with a lot of what just said and I am going to do something I hate to do, which is I'm going to be a terrible teammate right now. Because here's what Brandon Marshall is done over the last one hour and fifty two minutes. Brandon. Marshall is made sure that on Monday morning when we discussed this game, he gets to say I told you. So he has made I made this whole case for Arizona so. Can Be. Like told Ya while still. Ross's the EP and he's got to do this. So if the seahawks twenty me like in this is why out go to the super it is. It is obvious and I'm making sure. American notes. That's. Going to. Seattle is been living dangerously wild keeps bringing up and he's right how close the Patriots came to beating them. We forget about it, but the seahawks were trailing to the cowboys. And needed a fourth down conversion oils. They would've lost that game and we all know how the Minnesota game went. Minnesota can get six inches. The game is over and even after they don't get those six inches, Ross had to complete to fourth down conversions earls, they lost that game so they have been. Living dangerously and I think this is the week it bites. You I think they do boost Arizona. On upset alert and I think they be upset and the COMBI US for the Seattle team wild because the defense is so bad is the twenty eighteen chiefs historic offense MVP quarterback defense kept everyone in games. I think this game is going to have a feel of that Monday night classic chiefs, Rams, where it's just every time you get there's no ponds score score score score score I don't know if it's going to be fifty, one, forty, five, I didn't mean to do finger guns they're my apologies i. don't know if it's going to be fifty, one, forty five, but I do think it could be a forty, five, forty, one I, the over is the bed of the weekend and I think tyler the and the cardinals pull it out because the seahawks especially until they get. Jamal Adams back wild this defense has been keeping teams in games all year long. Yeah if you say your compass rams chiefs, my comp is a sneaker head with a pair of off white Jordan's that cost two thousand dollars and the rest of the outfit costs a collective twelve dollars. Wow. One part of your outfit. It's really amazing and the rest of. Terrible and that's what the chiefs are. The. Giving up four, hundred, seventy, one yards a game they're going to three hundred seventy yards air. So cuyler Murray if you throw off three hundred and fifty yards, you had a bad game against the seahawks and Cliff Kingsbury. ofensive genius. You're you're the architect of the air raid or continuing their rating. Of offense well, you know what? Your quarterback at one hundred and eighty eight yards against the woeful Dallas cowboys defense. You have to light this defense up or you lose your title of Mad Science Offensive Genius and as a brutal bonus. But this is the way it works folks you have to sell your mansion and get a small condo in Tucson. That's the way it works. You have to like this developer you'll lose lose well, you're sorry gender. That's. In. The. By. Laws. I just real quick wild. You mentioned Kingsbury I do think this game is going to have a big twelve. Feel to it like Cuyler, Oklahoma, Kingsbury, a Texas tech words all offense on both sides. Yeah. I did the Finger Gun Brian. Eagles in giants check out this play from the third quarter. Daniel Jones takes off nothing. Yikes. Greengrass as far as the I could see until he trips over nothing. Daniel Jones he got eighty yards he needed eighty for the touchdown random. When you look at this play when you consider this eighty yard, run a highlight or a low light at a Danny dimes. This is definitely a low light could have been lowered. They didn't score on his present the next possessed on on this drive like this is bad. But at the same time, I didn't know if I should cheer for him or be embarrassed because he did something elite I think this is the fastest Tom by any quarterback in the last couple years or something faster than Cuyler who we just talked about faster than Lamar Jackson faster than I've ever run the faster ever ran in the NFL was when I play for the new. York. Giants towards the end of my career and not clock like twenty point four. Coach Air Welcome and say here you go. Here's what the EPSCO This quarterback hit twenty one point eight and I have to take up for them just a little bit because for me I always struggled in open Phil because I wasn't that type of receiver to head that breakaway speed. So it was it was uncomfortable for me when there was nobody around me and there was one play in particular on Monday night football planning against the jets. Antonio Cromartie chasing me out just ran out of bounds and I looked like I was running like a duck. So Danny dimes Bro, this is bad but I feel I feel. Well. Nick you know what time it is. It's time for the return of a one of America's famous games. What will Joe Judge What will Joe Judge stupid that he famously had several great tape and tennis balls to the People's hands and Jumping on the ground with decides what should Joe Judge Make sure to have been number one take everyone rockaway running the sin number two long rolling expedition and number three a treadmill up to fifteen run Chad Johnson which drills should Joe Judge do to make sure this doesn't happen again. I think. A good one wild for by the way are Great Social Media Executive Producer Laurie Ray is just sitting me the play brain and talking about I. got on my phone right here. Four too Nice Brandon, Marshal Antonio Cromartie on a route. It's a corner route and his momentum carries him out of bounds. He doesn't Rumble Bumble and stumble like Daniel Jones done here so Why Jesse is is we got to take your pig world series game three tonight series all tied up who wins the pivotal game three dodgers or raise snick tickets. I don't WanNa be too specific here. So I'M GONNA say dodgers win forwarded to Walker. Bueller seven gives up to earn runs a mookie Betts scores one-run you bet the under the dodgers you give yourself a nice little cushion for this weekend going football dodgers win four to Walker Bueller plays great. I love it. I love. It dodgers win Bueller gets it done hey, he's only given up runs off postseason Wilde's. Dodgers win. Mookie Betts with another big game it's GonNa win the world series and Red Sox fans keep crying across the globe.

Caught Offside: City Slackers

"Caught offside with Edry gumming and JJ Davani. Oh. Coat off side from the Upper West side of Manhattan, Andrew gulling and JJ Davani. What's up brother cold is? What it is. It really is. Here we go. It's our favorite thing to discuss on these podcasts. And that is the weather was going to nice little segway and on a cool night at Anfield Leicester City sent a little chill down the spine of Liverpool's title arrests. And we'll talk all about that. But I wasn't done talking about the weather. Six cues me. I'm sorry old Irish mass air the end of a bar go on it's very cold that needs to be address a cultural thing as well. What do certain ethnic groups in this country obsess about the weather in the same way? The Irish do. I don't know that if I would limit it to ethnic groups when when you're talking about whether like what we're experiencing here in the northeast, and specifically what any of our listeners in the mid west, Chicago afternoons. Yeah. Apples was negative. Fifty one. That's like out of a movie today after tomorrow. Yeah. Really does feel like that outside. I walked from fifty nine th street station to the studio, and I was fine for a couple of blocks. Yeah. And then you start to feed your face goal read. And you see other people who have been out a little bit longer than you. And they looked like Tom Coughlin at Green Bay. I sometimes try to think like in my head. Sometimes when I see if it's going to be five degrees out or or thirty degrees. I'm like like, okay. Five degrees is really cold. But thirties really cold like, you know, so I can handle five. But then I think about it. And like, okay. Well, that's that is twenty five degree difference. Like, I called is called. But think like what if what's the difference between fifty degrees and seventy five degrees, a massive different to huge. Oh, yes. So that's the same with five and thirty. There can be like cold is not cold. There are different levels of cold. I'm wearing the d- spandex. The owner armor short things that go right down below the knee shin-length ones that I wear when you'd be doing winter soccer training our winter Gaelic football traffic. So I'm wearing them. I decided to dispense with the boxers more in them underneath the genes. Speaking of which you really could use some more soccer training that you were dribbling before I took the ball right off. You I didn't even grow up playing. The sport you've been playing at your whole life. That's a lie. I was bulled over by the move you made which was like a walked right in took it right off your foot a rebel growing through the door a prototype robot trying to play football. That's my style the robot. But can I go back to the comfort unfailing under my pants right now? It's own believable. They're stretchy. But you don't feel like you're wearing like we all know, what under armor is. I'm not doing a promo for them, by the way, if they wished to endorse us. That's quite all, right. I just mean the comfort level is is unbelievable Anna warm. I also feel confident in my body. That's nice. What a show we do have for you coming up. This was you know, I'm actually disappointed that this mid week of appeal action was amid week because it's hard for people here in the United States to watch and I actually found it's very hard for them to watch in particular when certain corporation decides to put both games the landmark games instead Lamour game one game. We expect it to be a comfortable victory, which was not. But both of them were behind pay walls, NBC's paywall this this week name them. I mean, we're in the US who else's pay walls are going to be shouldn't be so obvious about our stand for what they've done B C gold paywall for this week of games. It was like the wall and game of thrones. Like, there's just you're done. It's evil. It's made of ice. What are you gonna? I mean, it was so ESPN should fly in on a massive dragon. Just burn down Chelsea born. With was the only game available today, the non terrestrial to be. To be a really compelling game. But I just found like some of these games United Burnley yesterday city Newcastle yesterday, Tottenham scum. Not the NBC game yesterday. I'm just saying I'm not talking about the gold anymore. I'm just talking generally speaking like this this midweek, fixtures turned out to be like this is this will be a memorable. How they seem. How can you put the team that's top of the league having to respond to that league being caught by man city yesterday? How can you you know, put them behind that should be the game? Are you still talking about the pay wall? Yeah, we're talking. Oh. I'm just so channeling the anger of the common, man. No. And I trust me. I'm feeling too. So we're gonna talk about all these games in case. You didn't get a chance to see them because of the pay wall or because you were at work. We will go through them in in great detail. Also, we have a what's watch for some interesting games coming up this weekend and other friendly for the US and also a mail bag, which I'm slightly nervous for because oftentimes before show, you'll say, hey, by the way, we got this this, and this you should probably know about these things you have literally told me nothing in preparation for the mail bag. And you know, how I just I freeze up. I don't know how to answer questions spontaneously glam, bad and social situations. I did actual academic study for one of the mail bag questions, which you one of my supposed you would just know. But you will have a take on this because I'm sure you agree with the guy who sent the Email in. So you will have your site. And I will have my academic. Research site. Okay. And we'll see who who's more compelling. No, that's a fight that I can't win. Let's get into the games right now. You know, what's good about how this season is transpiring? And maybe you'll disagree with the way points. We'll talk about that. But now like, I feel okay, we've played twenty four games. So we're like we're we the halfway point of the season as well in the rear view mirror where we are not in the home stretch yet. But we kind of know what this scene games that we kind of know what this season is at this point JJ. Look I could be mistaken. I'd have to go back. But I feel like right now we have a compelling title race. We have a very compelling top four battle. We have a compelling relegation battle. I feel like every block of the table is giving us something that is worth keeping an eye on you still got Moshe in the middle which is occupied by by certain teams. That is what being in the middle is. There's never going to be really anything compelling about being clubs eight ever sixteen. Right. If no you're right. You're right. I'm I'm enjoying it. It's weird. It doesn't feel like just what you said. There does doesn't feed like down the stretch. That's why when people when city lost yesterday. I was not by any means just getting carried away with himself. I was delighted by no means was I think in that. It was a lot of people were talking about hands on the trophy. Now. You can't do that. It was really I mean, although the stats, by the way, this stats show that from this point on it's you know, God Liverpool's to lose. I don't believe that stop. I don't believe you just be real. I don't believe it at can you at least admit that you're putting up a defense mechanism when you say that know, how can you sit here and say that this is not Liverpool's to Lou twenty nine years, it just your city just lost to Newcastle. Jay Leno, and they're not playing. Well, no, let's start with that game. It was probably the stunner of the last couple of days. Here was your. Defining moment. Matt Richie steps up to the spot. He basically stood there for about an hour before Edison. I guess he was being worked on and finally was ready. And then this happened watching behind it's Matt rich. Shape. James? He's received the freedom of sector. Bittersweet call there. You know, why not I believe always on champion that was his final Premier League match. And he is now coming over to the United States to be the voice of MLS. I'm so delighted to have him here to have access to John champion who we've interviewed on is nothing short of a lovely, man. Anyone who speaks who knows him will tell you that he even invited us after we had him on the show to if we were in England before obviously this offer came up for me to have to have drinks with them and everything if we're ever in England for game lovely Ma I feel soil side. He's coming here. It's an conic primarily voice. You know? I was watching something today. One of those things that pops up on your timeline that launch. And you gotta watch it on its an ESPN documentary that used to run on ESPN called legends of the Premier League ESPN U K on its talking heads talking about the grip players interspersed with highlights, and it's Roy Keane sound like I'm not going to not watch that. So just flick it on possibly watching on champion is just giving his his comments on his his his analysis of Qian's career, and he's brilliant is overly brilliant. That voice deserves the stage of English football. Two of my favorite calls of all time. His call of Jamie Vardi goal. Manchester United in the five three comeback for LeicesteR. And this isn't a Premier League one. But the Tim k hill goal for ustralia against the Netherlands. That's the twenty four team World Cup brilliant. Call his voice. Go from polite Englishmen. Shrieking? And like his voice is so good that the cadence and song of it matched the crowd noises like perfectly they it was the it. He always seemed to have the appropriate call. Yeah. And the fact now that he'll be here. Now why so exasperated you should be thrilled? I know, but the big games in England that we're going to be glued to we're not gonna have him. So all right. So we'll have them for you know, like Wayne Rooney steals at plays. A Luciano cost a goal. Jon champion do your thing. I don't get, you know, as it's grit for European all joking aside for mentioned or city to go up as quickly as they did for to score in the first thirty seconds of this game. I mean, it just I saw people everywhere on Twitter saying okay, click onto the next one. I did that. Yeah. I watched wolves and West Ham appendi- of its own what is up with Manchester City right now because it does feel like they've gotten you know, they had some injury woes for a while. If feels like they've gotten most of those guys back for an Indiana was back and was at fault for the penalty. Certainly Kevin Brian is back like, what's what is happening here from the analysis that I've read of the game. And and from what I've seen a little bit from them going going wound Nilo, I won't say first of all Rafeh beneath had Newcastle. Marshall perfectly Benitez is a man who can stop a juggernaut we seen that with bad Liverpool teams that he managed. Where he was able to pull out results. So we should probably note that I he knew how to stop man city, and it was about stopping on city, and they got they got fortunate with the penalty, and you castle actually played well bought Thursday complacency in Manchester City. No, it definitely feels like that. And also don't you be complacent when you're this many points out enders doubt, come to very different complacency in style of play and doubt in the manager about his players. He talked about the Newcastle midfield. We weren't able to cope with their to holding central midfielders. Andrew I look to the Newcastle team yesterday it's championship team. But the championship team being Marshall by Champions League manager, I dot dot com from pet and pet was so animated on frustrated. There's something happening is if they've they've peaked they've plateaued on their Geos drifting. No little bit. I don't know. What else to say, you're right. And the thing about Manchester City last season. It felt like maybe these moments were few and far between and maybe I'm making more of it than what it was. But I don't know if they were capable of, you know, if they're in a dog fight, they they could find their way out of it. Remember that stretch of to ones that they have it was like four weeks in a row they had to one to one lake goal for sterling lake goal for sterling against Southampton. They were I think they were playing better in the general play. I guess, but like in in those games where maybe they didn't have it. They found ways to still come away with three points like this year when they go down it just feels like they're just not used to being in that position. And I don't know if feels like they just can't really fight their way back. Well, here here's here's the thing. For me. How this how I that Newcastle were organized defensively perfectly. Don't forget that. It was one one and it was a late penalty. And so it was all pants to the pump for Manchester City to try and break through do. You know, it wasn't like they went one down and couldn't get it back day. Just had the. Ball, and they met a solid wall of Geordie players. And it was the wrong manager to give an incentive to and look at penalty dot can can happen to anybody on that was that they could it was too late to get back into talking about Newcastle for sex JJ. You say you talk about the the championship players that they are comprised of one out there comprise of and MLS players. Well, well that is the thing yesterday was all Newcastle's dreams coming through. There was a protest before the game. Which is always the toughest thing for for fan base like Newcastle. We love this lobe. We shouldn't really be going to the games, but we can't stay away. So that the protas against Mike Ashley, but yet almonds Komen into the club. They've just beaten the champions this is and it's not just Marrone coming into the club. They've shattered their previous club record for most expensive signing. Now, it's a low bar that they're extremely low barrier. You know, what the previous record was Michael Owen? Yeah. From around Madrid exceed and a half million pounds. Thousand six yellow five Miguel Marin comes in at twenty one million pounds. Atlanta, the bars. Little I can't wait. I'm so curious. We don't see this all that often. Now Newcastle have done it before sort of well yet Lynn came from Spurs and then from Sunderland so he wasn't directly from MLS over to Newcastle. But this is this is probably one of the most high profile, Anna less to Premier League moves the we've ever seen so much should've told dynamism BBC radio five live. I saw that. Let's be honest. Just do some research. We light. He's been on the show before we really like him. Yeah. But that was it's not that like people analysts. Let's be let's call what it has MLS an easy target for people. And I think it's just like didn't even mention MLS. He didn't even mention the fact he can watch TV for the last two years on sky. Maybe I'm being sensitive. No, no, no. It's not about it's about. Just Google is seriously. Yeah, it's not that hard. It's not that hard. And if you wanted to throw in it's going to be a step up to go from the best team in America to one of the worst teams in the primarily on being a relegation dogfight that's going to be tough for him. How will you cope better players around Atlanta that's four sentences? Do you think that's true? What you just said there? I find for you to say that I find that to be unbelievable. Are you saying that if Newcastle were in the were in MLS, they would a loss to Atlanta? It's hard for me to say that Solomon Ron Don is a better player than Joseph Martinez. That's just one position. I don't know. Maybe I don't think it's crazy. What you just said. But I come out of your mouth. I I don't know if I fully believe that. But I I would I would imagine you would expect a defensively Premier League is going to be tougher than what was offered. I mean. Yes. And that is what I'm curious to see how will McGill alma Alman deal with competent defending space may not be quite as wide open. He deals with because he's he's a very good player in space. You know, he goes from defense to attack you help spring play forward. So quickly for Atlanta. It may not be that easy. But I'm excited to see him try. I'm very excited about devoting. I'll be rooting for opened a can of worms there with that. Come. I love the I wanna high five you right now. Don't believe let's see we continue JJ. We're talking about the title race. So we should talk about Liverpool. Earlier today, not able to take full advantage of Manchester. City's defeat. Thanks in part to Harry Maguire Klein TD came back to chill. Have a. Own the whole time. I was so nervous. When was it Pereira? I doesn't even matter when Robson fouled the LeicesteR player right in a dangerous position right before halftime on the sideline. Unlike it wasn't necessary. It just wasn't necessary. Unless there never really felt the retains. It's funny Liverpool dominated at times when they just passed. The move the ball without going anywhere in LeicesteR did a brilliant job making Liverpool past sideways, the wasn't that money penetrating poces. But I never Liverpool were out of control. But yet I had that inkling dot if Lester got a chance, they take it. And they did now I'll be honest that was the game. I didn't really see today. Well, how shall I put this should say at ESPN like because people are I don't have NBC gold access, but he SPN there's an internal feeding you have every game in the world. So it was more watching ta. Cinem- chelsea. And that's okay. And figured you would have Liverpool covered yet. No. I do. What can I say Liverpool? Mark good. They they weren't as incisive club had had Lester said we talked about how Newcastle resettle last or set a really well. And honestly, the was moments particularly ten minutes before half to our after halftime where Lester could've gone to up Madison. How did not Madison Demari gray had a chance Andrew? And if he centers to Mattison. I don't believe ever. Come back. Such was the competent organized structured nature of Leicester's defending. I looked at LeicesteR today. Do with them first before it got really into Liverpool. I wouldn't touch that manager seriously. They've got to buy into this. Because I times I know it's they sacrifice a little bit of that attack and flair that with a player like Madison and the team on a player like gray on a player like variety, you think even Pereira as a fullback, you think these players can do more on the ball, and I get that. But when you see a good they were against Liverpool tonight. I think you should just get behind the manager. And see where this takes you Liverpool for their part. The passing wasn't quite as Chris particularly in the second half. Andrew for team that makes chances they did not make enough clear co chances it really came down to that for me Lester a little bit tricky to figure out they draw with Liverpool today. They laugh. Month in December beat Manchester City beat Chelsea but this month leading up to the Liverpool match they gave up four to wolves in a four three loss. They lost Southampton in LeicesteR. So they're like, I don't wanna say that the fans frustration with Claude Puyallup completely unfounded. Although I am far more on your side of this that they'd be. I think they'd be crazy to fire him at this point. And in fairness to LeicesteR. They haven't said anything suggesting that they're going to do that. It's pretty much just speculation from what has been a tough run for them. We feel as if the players aren't just bought in. And that we often see maybe particularly varieties not happy with the amount of ball. He gets and their eleventh right now, which for Leicester's is probably a little bit lower than what I think they have conduct stuck on the farm tonight. They should be it should be higher up. Yeah. But just to give you just to give you flavor of just some of the notation I had Madison had a chance, by the way, Madison hod before. Before they even equalised. Allison again, mix mistake against LeicesteR LeicesteR when the ball back Albright stands up a perfect cross and Madison instead of nodding at home choice to square for variety. An Enzo putting a pasta post like less to create a chances Madison channel forty nine minutes. Alison made huge save in advertently from for menial with his legs. That was a big chance chill will put an across another lesser chance. A Demari grad break on a shot after that he should have passed that was the one referenced already, and then I have for menial carved out a brilliant chance which Casper's Michael put round the post Liverpool founded hired to break down. Now there were moments in the first half Liverpool's scoring early where Liverpool last year would have just blitzed them. You know, the way those Liverpool starts after ten minutes. They get a goal and then be bang bang. Bang bang bang on the before, you know, the over and it just couldn't click into that going to rhythm. Keta wasn't quite right Henderson at right back with decent as a stand-in right back. But it wasn't perfect just off tonight just off and they've been off on the they need a performance against West Ham among tonight for I saw the static maybe a week and a half ago. So maybe it's changed time sense. You mentioned navigator one assist this year. Is that still right? Yeah. No. He's had a long period out. Either injured are recovering from injury. But for all the goals that Liverpool score. That's a little. I wouldn't have thought that twenty four games in a book kit as a player who you expect to to create assists an goals himself driving runs. No, he should have had a penalty tonight. I'm not gonna complain about it too much put it was a clear fold his foot was stood down as he was about to pull the trigger on didn't happen. You move on. But apart from that we didn't see that cling to marauding ruin Andrew he made his name on those dribbles. Get. Possession given goals and driving into the box outside of the first game of the season against west time at we haven't seen the things we were I'd love to go back and look at our rundown that we made after that game. We were basically anointing him as like the next Brian ah the truth is we haven't seen keta. BK for two seasons. Now the breakout season where Klopp said he's doing things I've never seen before was followed by a soak season where he didn't get his move to Liverpool as quick as he wanted an down season. And just hasn't clicked yet. But patience, I guess, let's see. So that is the top of the table. We move a couple places down to the battle for fourth and Tottenham in a major morale-boosting moment for them earlier today got this from Fernando your intake of all people rose. Skull. Suffered socks. Just today the hero. I love that call for Martin Tyler because it is true. You're into was just awful for most of this game. I texted you at four twenty pm. I said question, do you think for Nando your intake might actually be trying to lose? I'm just curious how he could be so bad. You wrote back. Very nice rational response writers often go to clubs and just fall apart at four forty four. You're anti all caps. Multiple exclamation marks. I take it all back. We don't take all take it all all the now. He's he's not very good. But he keeps score like he keeps having these moments. So it's hard to stay mad at him. Now. Look he scored the goal that got the comeback victory. And it was one that was that is really so big for them because it gives them now seven point cushion on fourth and fifth. So on Tottenham has big cushion of the teams below as they do between them and Liverpool for the title. Is important yet. So it was a huge moment by no means is he man of the match son's return for Spurs was just absolutely monumental. He scored the equaliser. He was so good for them. Danny rose has been fantastic for Tottenham of late. He played in the ball to urinate got that win. But like he is watching your Renta over the course of the match for Tottenham fan right now. It's just like the most roller coaster ride experience magin, your feelings for Vincent Janssen. Then. Oh, my technically still on the team. How's that? Even the thing. That's possible. Yeah. So a huge win for Tottenham coming off the week that they were calm down one nil for so much of this game. And it just like it just looked so feeble from them and you just start thinking, no cane, no deli. Where's it going to come from sun, maybe out of form -unding with Korea? And then it's just a bit of a nice dribble through for sun. And it opens up, and it really changed everything and the United and Chelsea results, very helpful to and maintaining that it certainly was and we'll go right to that. Because there's really not a ton to say about him. We'll go to Chelsea, which I think other than Manchester City and they're lost Newcastle. I don't think there was anything more. I opening over these past couple days than what happened to him. Here's the fourth goal being scored by born myth in a four nil drubbing against Chelsea. Standing. Just. Chelsea are a couple days removed from advancing to the League Cup final. You would think things are good right now. Like, maybe Marizzio. Sorry. Whatever message. It was that he was trying to get to his team. Maybe that message conveyed. But now maybe not because I'm reading here. This is from Chris wise on Twitter. This was after the game today in which Chelsea lost four nil. Giving up four goals all in the second half. Chris. Why says Chelsea manager Murchio sorry still has his players in the dressing room. The game finished over forty minutes ago. He's chucked all his hashtag CFC backroom staff out. So it's just sorry and the players and then JJ when sorry did emerge. Some of the quotes that he came out with were once again pretty eye opening sorry said Chelsea did not play team after the break, and they quote found it difficult to accept going behind. Maybe I'm not able to motivate these players. He added. We talk all the time about Roman Abramovich having a quick trigger with managers, and we don't think that that's necessarily the right way to go stability is important. It matters. The best teams typically have stability, but JJ when you see your own manager saying things like this. And you know, you can't fire all these players Sunday leave. But ultimately, this is the team that Chelsea moving forward with. What's he supposed to do? It's like Murchio sorry is daring him to fire him. I can't motivate these players. All right. Then you're gone, and I'll bring someone who will unthank- for just signing Gonzalo Egwu on like massive wages. I don't I think we have to go back to what we said on the previous podcast about sorry and systems. He obviously cannot get this team to play exactly how he wants. And it sounds like a manager who's looking for a way out. Yeah. Like the words that we stopped playing. We didn't play like a team. It's difficult to understand why I'm not able to motivate motivate these players their soul little room for nuance or interpretation in comments like that on not able to mold of it. These players. That's what I'm saying. Like wherever you go except say, okay. Well, you give it your best shot. Right. That's why I'm almost like look, it would be crazy. I think ultimately to fire him at this stage in the season. But they're battling for spot in the top four. He's now said that like, I don't know that I would do it. But this would be situation where if Abramovich dude come out and make a move in the wake of this. This is one time may be where I would not think that that was totally crazy now we should note that there was defensive breakdowns the like of which deluise was horrendous. You know, it's he says it's difficult understand why we didn't play like team difficult. I mean, if you if you do the things at Davos at did who I will to my grave say the only man that really managed him correctly was Rafa Benitez and he played him in midfield. So, you know. I don't know. This is this is this is something where I don't see how this ends without him leaving the club in the summer. I don't see how it like on. Like, where's the turnaround going to be they're going to lose hazard? I would imagine zoom ably presumably soul does does Abramovich allow sorry to go in and buy more more players to play in that state of sorry had they've gone out of all the clubs right now in England. And I know that arsenal have made some moves over the past couple of days, and there's maybe another big one that could becoming before the deadline ends. But like Chelsea have gone out. Like, you said they just brought any Wayne which is probably the biggest move that is occurred in the league in this window. You know, they did go out and spend huge money on pulic. Now. I know he's not there now. But like they're they're gearing up for when hazard or William, but leave hand on heart like -peutic comes into that team now of that. No. It doesn't feel like that. I don't know. Yeah. He's not he's not has art office. What's happened? Performance against Liverpool who were one of the high flying teams when they went to Stanford bridge. Now, I'm not talking about the carbo cope game game two games a long time ago. But we thought they've got the ideas the sorry hit the sorry bowl ideas. We thought they you know, they bought in. And they got it. And is this a case of look you gotta give me a transfer window to get to get some players out. And some other ones in is is that what we're looking at here. Maybe that is part of it. I don't wanna get too down. Although he is, but yeah, but this is all driven by we're not hearing. It's a learning curve. We're building something here had we're hearing. None of that. He's had it with this saying like, I can't work in these conditions. You know, it's a bit of a divas drop. Yeah. Now, I do wanna give I don't wanna make this all about Chelsea born with deserve a lot of credit because in the second half of this game. They were fantastic Eddie, how really is the English prince. The grit white hope of English management. Sorry. Job. It's not Garrett soak it, it's not it's it's always been any health. Always been you Eddie it really passed over Niamey. He's come into the club that really wants you on your ways a couple of players that I did wanna give special credit to David Brooks. I think is really having a breakout sees on is absolutely fantastic player acne. He reads the game. So well as moving his finishing. I mean, where's of got themselves? Heck of a player had a nice assist, and then and even better goal shortly after that and then Joshua king. The Norwegian was fantastic score twice in this game. Both excellent finishes for him born Muth when it's they're just weird. Like when it's good. It's unbelievable. When it's bad. They can just as easily be on the other side of some of these. That's what do do you know what I mean, what a team in their in their haute is it in their social strata if we're gonna make this a class war in the class war of English. Football born are doing just fine. It's just funny because they've conceded for they're having a great season their ten th in the table right now, which for born Muth, they'll they'll take that their fans will be happy. Yeah. They've conceded forty two goals, though, which just to put that in perspective only Burnley and Cardiff City and Fulham have conceded more is their money teams, though of their ilk that tried to play multiple no, which is why we enjoy them so much they are funding to watch. Because when you watch them, you know, you're seeing goals unless you're Chelsea, you know, what we gotta do out. You know, we gotta do gotta do cherries in the club. Oh, you think so angry do? Okay. Let's get the best form of podcasters out there the best podcasters money can find. All right, JJ, Manchester United down to nil against Burnley. Usually when you're down to nil against Burnley. It doesn't end well, but not this version O because this is inhabited by the ghosts of Alex Ferguson. Yeah. It's it's no longer Furger time. It's only time. Now, this was Lindelof late on getting the equality for United. Young. And with that Burnley. They might have given themselves a nice chance to get some real breathing room from the relegation zone. Instead, they say they stay four points clear of Cardiff. So they do have some breathing room. But man, seven or know what would have been six points. Clear had they got in the win. That would affect even nicer for Manchester. United. I don't know. It's funny. A lot of things have by some kind of transference have become. Part of Oleg or societas Manchester. United one of them is the late comeback. The other one is the predeliction for referees to give dodgy penalties at Old Trafford. Yeah. Here's what. So Jesse Lynn guard got the first goal for United in the eighty seventh minute when he drew this penalty. This is Hendrick. Most point to this. Good this team Susuki hedging stop sorry. In in the pantheon of stupa challenges dot is not up there. He's got a hand on the shoulder. Like, that's it. It's yeah. Lindgaard is felt contact to shoulder thrown himself to the floor. Like. Excusing this like a hand on the shoulder is a legitimate reason for penalty be called. It's not there's no trip. There's no shirt pulling there's dragging down. He literally places his hand on a shoulder. That's not that's not a penalty. Now. Here's the context for this. United had twenty eight shots in the game. That's a lot. They had nine on target on the dominated like they could have scored ninety money more. But Tom Heaton stood on his head. I've no problems saying that. But the goal that ultimately brings them back into it is never a penalty. Yeah. Here's Sean Dyche afterwards who actually took it fairly. Well, do it. Well, I kind of want to actually have him speak on this one. Is that? Okay. I've really hurt you. Okay. You know, I mean. Touch on the shelter and you go down, but that's gonna change it up every week. And nice more about the guy a thing a foreign sees lightly. I think that the willing to disarm dementia is grabbing on the very place with them. But if I was to put my hand on your shoulder, you wouldn't full to the flu. I think unlikely I think is very unlikely if but that's the modern guy everyone seems to think successful seem what's happening in the guy. No questions so full I'll have to go. Well, Sean, we're here, and we are questioned. Yeah. You look at some players Mohammed Al as well. On the way, they go down there. And I think of show I think of Sean Dyche Ovar dis Wella should into that. There's lots whole the whole they know that this is not a national thing or even a cultural thing anymore. But I think Sean dykes from his player who was like a journeyman old pro down the divisions. And he is so reserved in what he would have done had been done on the field beside him. What will we have heard from him in that case? Oh jaunt in oh in game on game day. Tell you something you go down. Again, throw your stand. Both pretty raw. But it's also dice with a bit of a northern accent. But it was so angry. He turned into Yorkshireman. Yeah. Yes. So it's it's so interesting here dicey. So polite about but. Yeah. United United good value to to pull themselves back into that one on. I suppose, and they did just that looking at it right now just to recap how the top of the table looks Liverpool. Hold a five point lead currently over Manchester City and in the top four right now Tottenham on fifty four points than in fourth places arsenal with forty seven Chelsea with forty seven and United with forty five. So there's an interesting battle developing between those three mainly right now arsenal Chelsea and United for that that fourth spot a couple other things that I did want to mention Wilfred Zola scored a goal today for Crystal Palace. But then in the eighty seventh minute was sent off he had a he was angry with the referee after a tackle from James ward Prowse, and then he was given a yellow card for that. And then he sarcastically clapped to the referee after in front of him. He wasn't doing what used to be the sneaky one where you'd be walking away not facing the wrath anew turn round and give it the clap and the referees. Probably looking at something else. It was in front of them. I'm by the way, Czaja something going. On with him. We've seen it earlier. He's had talked about it earlier this year. He's going through some stuff. I'm not going to criticize him for it. But we he he's one of the most fouled players in the league. And you know, his own manager talks about how he's just not protected by the referees. And so when he sees things I think, I really think he's had it. And now he's he's going after referees. Who are not having his back for whatever reason. I, but I I would honestly say that incident. Ward pros wasn't the worst. I've seen he just snapped. Because he's hot and over it doesn't matter. No. I think this where Roy Hodgson inexperienced manager talks to them and kind of tells him. Strategies mental strategies to kind of ignore partly and also maybe Detroit stale to contentious situations like us are cast the clap getting a guy sent off seen before seeing seeing it feel so hard on the oil so sensitive Marini did it to a referee. Was was Kim thing. Nielsen or whatever his name was that the Danish referee did an Champions League game. A no. It does seem. But it's it's contemptuous. It's it's it's demeaning. There's no question about that. But for things that could get a guy sent off like he didn't curse at him. You know, there wasn't any real aggression. Yeah. He's it's in the heat of a game a close game. He's frustrated. Like, I I understand no one wants to be spoken down to lease of all referee. But I just think sometimes you have to use a little bit of discretion. You're prepared for this guy to now be suspended sent off in in a close game where could've gone on and lost. They didn't it ended as a draw. Now, he's going to be suspended for a game and these class player and you're wondering if he's letting all the stuff, that's I mean, if sure it's not fun to be hacked regularly. But it's also an indication that teams are afraid of you just think sometimes in the heat of a game in the heat of competition. Certain things have to be kind of like, you don't like it, but you have to kind of grin and bear it, and I sort of think the sarcastic clap one of them if he wasn't on a yellow card, and he. Did it? I'd say, okay. Give him a yellow. But but to make the decision to give this guy a red for something like that. I think this is Coleman. Anyway, he was going to lash out at some point, by the way, he threw his hand at ward proce, which got him the initial Yeta. Yeah. That could have been a red as well. And then last but not least JJ Fulham with a huge win. They went down to nil. And it looked like it was just, you know, headed for disaster. And they storm back they show some fight for run Yari, and they went at four to over Brighton. Now, it's still dire times for them. They've got seventeen points their second from bottom Huddersfield right now our bottom and they're gone right there on eleven points. It's got to be over for them. Which is unfortunate the stage in the season Fulmer hanging on for dear life. But this was this was like, I almost feel like had they not come back and done that they'd be gone too. I really feel like they're kind of right on the knife's edge will at least there's a little bit of torture distance to carry if it's not, you know, but that's but they need to get past Cardiff. I know they have to get to burn. You have to stand toe twits view, I and get to Burnley. Yeah. And I think Bernie not losing gave an Fulham winning themselves gave them a little bit whole Fulham or two behind Cardiff and six points behind the way, Burnley air the fire festival of the Premier League Fulham. Yeah. All that money spent all those promises all that excitement. And all you get is some American cheese on a dry sandwich with tomato. What documentary? I saw the Netflix one. I wish I had Hulu because I really wanna see the who the one interviews. Billy mcfarland. All I'm going to watch the who to donate who is ethically. Paying Billy McFarland. I hold on to people who were ripped off the woman who owns the restaurant. Well, a gofundme page was started for her. And I think she's gotten. I don't wanna say, but she's gotten a huge amount of money. Imagine magic. She wasn't there on that island that day. No one would have been fed. No one would have got drink. It would have literally been twice as bad. I was for us to throw a caught off side fire festival. I wanted to I wanna have just the most disastrous. What would be like? So we promise people what like MO Sala. On a rooftop. And we've booked midtown midtown rooftop July. Right. And then who shows up Dean Holdsworth from Wimbledon fam-, we promise Vinnie Jones is gonna fly in from LA. We get. What's your mound? O'hara that used to play for Spurs. Jamie O'Hara Amy O'Hara shows up because he went on a celebrity show trying to stiffen like we're promise everybody there were giving everybody here jerseys of your favorite player. And it's going to be just like I'm gonna I'm gonna just draw. Right. Kane on the back the night or you're using pains. Magic markers to try and do that'll be ten thousand dollars? Thank you. Yeah. An entries like five hundred bucks. At least at least. Hey, we're gonna take a very quick break. We got a mailbag that I am in no way prepared for coming up next plus short what to watch for don't go anywhere. Oh back. Now, we got a big mailbag. Don't we we do have a big mail bag at CO soccer pot on Twitter caught off site potty mill dot com. A Travis hall. I was stunned to hear Jim mentioned that he believed. It's the manager's job to motivate the players, maybe this is an American brand thing. But that's insane. To me that a professional athlete needs motivating from his culture manager. I couldn't imagine team losing a big game and football hockey baseball and people saying the players didn't get property motivated by the coach if you can't motivate yourself to play the game assume they all love, then you shouldn't be playing at that level, in my opinion, in your opinion. Is this something that is more prevalent in the soccer culture? We'll go ahead. I'm curious. What you say? I I did a little bit research. We just heard sorry, by the way talk about motivating the players. Maybe I wasn't clear, but I believe motivation is a part of coaches job. It is not the sole role of the manager. But I did some academe research Andrew on the concept of motivation to see if anybody their backs meal for my view, while you're going you're ready factors affecting the context for motivation in public organizations, James L Perry. Lyman w porter from the university of California bibliography. No, I'm just telling you wrote it I give them the proper ju- motivation as a hypothetic as a hypothetical construct motivation, usually stands for what energizes directs and sustains behavior and short on terms. It is the degree and type of effort an individual exhibits a behavior behavioral situation. So that's what motivation is. One of the key things that I read in this was work environment characteristics. So let's imagine the football field is the work environment are the training field. Variables dealing with work environment characteristics. That can be changed or modified impact motivation can be placed into two subcategories immediate work environment characteristics and organizational actions, clearly the two most critical factors in an employee's immediate work environment are the peer group teammates on the supervisor. Who is the manager? That is what I took from that. And also just strap it out a bit. Is that not what we're seeing what social versus Marino. You saw the increase in. Sprinting an effort for United under Sasha versus that under Marino. It's just too simplistic to say if they love the game, and they're paid. They get the day are motivates don't let them off the hook though. No. It's not about letting them off the hook. But like, for example, if you watch the Stephen Jared documentary, which is on Amazon, he by the end, the things that motivate him are totally different to the things that would motivated them like love of the game and money is the motivation. It's actually fear fear finishing his career without a trophy that fear of letting the city down, there are different motivating factors. So whereas that for these Chelsea players fear of not finishing in the top four fear of embarrassing themselves on days like this a four nil against born Muth like put the manager Siri said, I kind of motivate them. So he really understands his role as part motivator, and psychologically, he's not getting through. But I think he's I think there's double meetings. What he's saying? Yes, he's he's trying to in some ways take the noble way out here and say that this is on me. I can't motivate these players, but I think that is also a dig at these players. I it's hard to read that and not take some kind of out of it that these guys just don't care. Or that these guys are just not up for it. Like that's an instant Marino called Paul pod. A poison Popo played many times for United despite what pug by acolytes will tell you many times like he didn't give a care for United. So then he comes in and the motivation has changed. That's all I'm saying. All right. Do you? Enjoy my research. It was really really enlightening don't ever oil me again at the start of something that is undermining and it d- motivates me, really Luke styles. Luke styles here from Brisbane Australia. Wow. Yeah. We we've got we've got six straight listeners. Maze count them. Yeah. Love the pod. And appreciate all your insights into all things English Premier League. Amongst everything else fellow Liverpool fan, however, always had a soft spot for Fulham having seen my first primarily game Craven Cottage when they played stoke back early in the season four five years ago. My question is what are your thoughts on Ryan bobble from the few games? He has played he has been one of their best. Watching him against Tottenham. I couldn't believe it. How good he was. So that's really the most that I've seen him. I haven't watched all that much Fulham. I think it's then because he went on such an odyssey after Liverpool where he went off the radar. We just assumed he was playing at a lower level and wasn't what he used to be. He was an infuriating player for Liverpool. He could do amazing things on the ball and beat players score goals. And then other days, he couldn't control it. So I guess maybe maturity like anything sometimes comes to people later. He's matured as a fuller on this odyssey of Turkey and the Middle East. Maybe. Yeah. Maybe I will get your other questions another day, Luke, but we are against the clock, Henry hack, amac. Hey guy sorry to right into weeks in. I just wanted to respond to Andrews comment that you can't really find tickets for games of any decent size for less than thirty dollars. No. Are we allowed to sometimes have high? Personally, I think you were talking about the United States of America. So what is it to prove me wrong? It doesn't have to be like that here in Germany as a member of Brocha Moenchengladbach, I can get tickets for seventeen year olds and even general admission tickets for the majority of the stadium are as low as nineteen for sold out on this league games on less. It's game against Byron are rivalry game. I will say this. The Bundesliga is always led the way in ticket pricing. Jason Higgins, Jason you annoyed me with this Email not gonna like love the pod is always have a question from last week's pods on the lads. It's Spurs talk. You discover the perception of Spurs small Trump as a fairly recent fan of the EP L only know Spurs as a consistent presence in the top six of the table. So I thought look at their past might be inciteful almost the price to see. The Tom are one of only six clubs to never have been relegated since the formation of the Premier League when football began which man city can't say. Oh, the can't an only spent one season removed from the top flight of English football since nineteen fifty now. That's where you need to focus. It is the perception is the perception of Spurs mainly due to the comparison to arsenal. And chelsea. Or is it that Spurs have never won the title, which seems a bit on just since neither Liverpool. Everton both EPL constants. Have also never won. They've never won the title. Jason. That's interesting. That's not true. Either is Jason. So he glanced over the sixties, I suppose, so I said to you, get your Spurs opinion. First of all Jason football did not begin in nineteen Ninety-two. Forget the Premier League year talk about teams in their in their fullness on Spurs were a double winning team in the early sixties. And wore one of the biggest teams in England for for having for decades. The small toll thing is that it's so long since they've won a league title. That's that's the thing. You may not like the way he went about coming to his general point there. But that doesn't mean that he's wrong. What he's saying? For whatever reason, maybe it's my own insecurity as a fan of that club. But I do believe that many fans around the league many neutrals do kind of you them that way. Like, we didn't make up lads at Spurs. That was a thing that was said because that was the perception of them they were they were alternately they would show for bit in the season. But ultimately would roll over even keel Leany said it last year when event is he said, what did he say the Tottenham are a have a small mentality of something about their history. Right. They have a history of doing. What's like, we're like, it is something for whatever reason that exists. And this is kind of what Pasha Tina was fighting. He's trying to kill this idea of Tottenham being a small club. And he's done an unbelievable job in having done. So Jason can do himself the best favor by knocking off the you know, haven't won a Premier League title football star. That is when the world began. Yeah. The but seriously in the Paul he's just gonna get wrecked. By someone for saying Liverpool of never wanna title like Amman, the truth hurts Britney diamond. This is from a few days ago. So listening to last night's pot. I had to reach out as a fellow Spurs and eagles fan. I've been waiting to connect with you. And then after you mentioned the fire festival, which is coming up lot on this. I happen to watch boat docks earlier this week explosions in the sky. I was randomly listening to them yesterday. Which don't do. It was so crazy out to say hi fear paying about Spurs. So she was talking about the injuries etcetera real of the podcast talks about how she visited England and kind of became interested in Spurs in Liverpool and how we became our favorite podcast. Do you ever watch Spurs games at a bar and NYC would love to meet you and buy you a drink. I just moved back to NY from LA and don't have any Spurs fan friends here. So will be nice to meet someone with a similar passion. Especially someone from Philly. Brittany. What a nice Email extremely nice out of reaching out to you as a as a lost Philadelphian. Yeah. I know Spurs fan and Philadelphian alone in a big city. That is very nice. I would say that. Sadly, I do not get out to watch games at bars as much as I mean used to Flannery time. Yeah. Fl- Flannery as. There you go to watch Tottenham was a fourteenth and seventh red red around. It's right off seventh have like the subway. Stop is like at where the bars. So that is a great spot to watch Spurs a newly essence I since I had a kid even more. So since I moved to the suburbs. Like, I really kinda like it's just harder. Now, I feel bad. I would love to be able to like go watch games on Saturday mornings. But it's just tough to do that. And for the eagles if she's looking for spots to go shorties, and whoa, jeez. Are too great eagle Philly bars in New York City. So if it if this is a thing that happens if you are going out to watch a game. Yeah. Of course, we'll let you know. But it's just I just don't do it as often as I used to sorry, he'll bad be should such love the Email. I saw it. It was extremely nice pie sano of yours. I know reaching out I know only for the hand to be slept away. Don't be like that Brittany. Meet furthering. And I'll bring bring a coat of Andrew probably about as exciting as if I was actually my God. So self deprecating too. I am by the way, we've got a we've got a bunch of March emails, which I will get to people are want merch. Carson Gansler said listening to lads it Spurs IB shirt. If you made them we have to get on this. We are so far we're not making a lads at Spurs shirt. Meanings of the club. Listening to it. And he takes t shirt from the potty thought he wants shirt that says lads spur NAT said he pay for keychain with button you compress play the Cowboys cope zone. Our noisy nine. No, no, no, finally, Mike Verda, disagree at one. In a recent episode. You talked about public fan on teams STI bar in the league final and my brothers, and I each purchased share years ago as a dream of owning a soccer club the club sold ownership shares to raise value in the game promotion to league as they didn't meet the minimum value requirements to be in the league. We're risk of being demoted to division after having just won promotion from the second division into the first division, and that was the mail bag. That's awesome. Good. Very good mailbag. Wait, the nice things that people say on that. I don't get to read out. Appreciate it so much keep saying them keep sending me your love bombs. I will read them. I will get to the March not to say the by. No means is this me saying that we're soliciting people that just say nice things. No one thing. There was an Email. I forget who it was that sent it a while back. But I thought it was really nice person. Who said everyone assumes that you know, people tell you all the time. Hey, you're doing. Good job. Well, that's not always true. So I want to say I was a great one. I thought that was like and that is true people. Don't now on this podcast. Very lucky. Our our listeners are really kind. If you say really nice, they do just talking generally in life. Not even this podcast. Like if you think somebody's doing a good job with something. Like it can't hurt to tell them. Now. People don't hear that enough. There's enough, Twitter and social media is an equity number of snark and criticism and h-have. So if you can unburden that kind of negative energy by saying things that are nice if you enjoy something tell people like do, I do it to other podcasts. Yeah. That's very nice. Just not arrivals. Very very quick. What to watch for Saturday? Seven thirty AM kick your weekend off with Tottenham and Newcastle big game for both sides as Newcastle. I'd say they're feeling safer and safer. I I hope Almar on place. I won't I would think he is. That a Rafeh thing to do to throw him in early wonder. I'm trying to think I guess that would be really quick he only just landed today. I don't even know if it's is it even official yet. Are we jumping on his medical pretty much? All right. It's done. Yeah. He probably won't heal. He wouldn't play. When think by the way, I mean after beating the champions wrath team token, be just lads firs. Sunday, nine oh, five AM, less city and Manchester United at the king power. Interesting. Could go one we see if Lester KOMO to play on play a little bit more spoke earlier about how they've played well against the top six they're they're capable site. We keep waiting for United for this new manager bounce to just start to subside. They were down to nil against Burnley would even not had the relics of days of your this is a tough assignment they go on the road now against the solid Lester team Sunday eleven thirty AM, Manchester City and arsenal Manchester City, it's not the easiest assignment. Now, they are at home, but that gap like, I'm so curious to see the gap by Maury devoted the gap between the arsenal defenders that you do wonder about what's the saying, no pressure creates diamonds and burst pipes. That's the cliche. Right. Well, Manchester City are now starting to feel the pressure and we'll see which way they go here. It's going to be very interesting international friendly, Jay. JJ Saturday at three thirty the United States of America. And Costa Rica are all nemesis. Yeah. Yeah. So obviously, we will be keeping a keen eye on that we have notes you'll have pages of of course. And we will definitely recap that afterwards. I did want to mention before we said goodbye on this podcast Barcelona turned around the entered the second leg of their COPA. Del Rey matchup against via down to nil went back to Barcelona, and they just absolutely destroyed them six one they come away six three winters on aggregate. And I saw the sixth goal. You showed me Essy's goal, which it's almost it. Almost feels unfair to call it messy goal because it's such a team goal. One pass. Yeah. I was saying you before how like as Tottenham fan. I sometimes feel lucky that that's the club. I root for because generally, I feel you enjoy watching him play like an aesthetically pleasing style. But if I saw them score a goal like that. I probably think and if you're a Barcelona fan like how lucky are you? That's just like you. Go to watch them play. That's just the thing that you can expect to have happen. It's amazing. I'll tell you something. I'm I'm giving a big show to arsenal. Fans. Now, there was a period of call it early Fabra guests when I think it was fabric Wilshire were still there at the club. And it was the start of the season. They scored the school against Norwich which was just like Vanja had them playing football. That was I mean, they couldn't win anything put it was of a different stratosphere. Yeah. Are used to be a little bit jealous. I used to God that his just SOGA to watch difference with arsenal number Sloan special win things. And if you're right. Do you ever watch Bosch on this is not like anything, I watch anywhere else from a different planet. One hundred percent. It really is. So yes, six one they turn it around. We should say also in the COPA Talia fiorentina beating a s Roma seven one. Some unbelievable resulting event is out of COPA. Tony goosing to Atlanta three nil goes the kids get for fiorentina yet. Hatrick the ma- the boy who looks most like his father like just the way runs the way looks unbelievable. Yeah. That's sort of it. So who Roma you've a Napoli there? There are all out of COPA Talia graveyard for the big teams. Well Milan are AC Milan. Or through. It's the big team come on. That's that's nonsense. How dare you? Unbelievable. Hey, this was a lot of fun should be a fun weekend of primer league action. United States of America action. We will be back next week to recap all of it to you. I say take later, ticker. Listening to cough side soccer podcast.

Caught Offside: Down to the Wire

"Caught offside with Andrew gumming and JJ Davani. Offside from the west side of Manhattan and gulling J J Davani. What's up rather MC cited should be podcast? Yeah. I know. Lot of good things coming your way, a lot of reaction to what was very busy weekend some championship talk. So you I mean, you're tail's wagging. Oh my God. Are you excited? Yes. Some championship talk. Although it's not really specific to the championship. It's more of like big soccer questions. Congratulations. Just in case. We forget to Norwich on Sheffi United v looking their places back in the big time Narda regular the Premier League. They are now the Boeing Boeing Baggies of Norwich and Sheffi United backup after twelve years. Yeah. Should be fun. Having them both back. Couple names. Most permanently fans, obviously, even the newer ones here in the US are at least somewhat familiar with especially like, you said arch. So yeah. And and yeah, no Billy shark gets his chance to be a top scorer in the top league. Should be fun. We're here right now. So the first leg of Tottenham, I ax Champions League has not kicked off yet. It's like eleven AM right now eastern time, we'll recording this. We will have a lot of people maybe seeing this Tuesday night and be like, oh my God. They're doing one. No, we're going to do. This is a weekend reaction podcast. Plus, we're gonna speak with crystal done of the US women's. National team that should be fun. We're gonna talk to her coming up a little bit later on in the podcast are Champions League. Recaps as per usual will be out Wednesday night, probably somewhere around nine o'clock. So we're just doing the Monday podcast on Tuesday Tuesday. Yeah. Nothing about this is confusing at all it's all very people. Don't like the fact we don't have a rigid schedule. Well, my I had one question for you before we will do a little bit of Champions League previewing. But my first question for you about that. Oh, is do I go DVR method shut myself off from reality? Yep. I oh, no you have a choice. It's the first leg. Still one of the biggest games that I have ever witnessed for this clause. The biggest game out. I point out lane big game in north London. Since arsenal were in the champion. Think I'm gonna try now I will say it makes it difficult for me to do my actual job when I turn my phone off. And don't go on the internet producer for the Michael. Show becomes our to do my work on though. Yeah. But I'm I think the game this game rises to a level where I think I'm gonna try absolutely semifinal. I know spasm taking on Benfica not to say that I think of Tottenham is like a small club. I don't think they have been for for for the last thirty years. It was to the point yesterday. I was on ESPN AFC. And I just saw it was just an innocuous poll like who do you think will advance to the Champions League final, and it's I access logo. And then there's the Cockrel of Tottenham. It just hit me. I was like they're playing in Champions League semi final to go to a fun. This is this club. This is crazy. You know, what I do if I if you have a small launch when you get home, you're gonna watch it, and, you know, put on some food order some food and do make thing of it. Maybe crack open a few Kansas. Stella junior spruce. I'm really excited. A couple other kind of house cleaning notes real quick. Like we mentioned last time. I'm going to continue to mention for the people who missed last week's podcast, but are. Angry at us for article. We did not right. We are not the website caught off side. We are literally just a podcast that has no affiliation. With them whatsoever. Were barely affiliated is to be. I'll probably say that few more times just to make sure everyone who needs to know does. No. But that's me saying that. And also, please subscribe to our caught off side podcast feed. I was stunned. We said that on last week's show, and I went and kinda check some of our mentions, and there were so many people that had no idea that we have our own specific podcast channel on worrying. What we've been doing on apple? Well, it's no one's fault. We haven't we haven't mentioned it. So there's no reason for people job. So if you get us on the ESPN FC, see, that's great. But I would highly recommend that you specifically subscribe to the caught offside feed because once we get enough subscribers on that channel we might start doing things specific just to that channel exclusive content. So everybody do that make a habit of doing that. And here we go JJ now into the weekend that was in the primarily and we start at the top of the table with the tunnel race. The status quo remains Liverpool. Do what you would expect them to do to Huddersfield a five nil. Thrashing Manchester City. We do kind of what you might expect them to do against Burnley. What a lot of teams do against Burnley as eke out a slim victory. And when I say, slim, I mean that in the most literal sense was millimeters prior to this game the millimeters. People were talking about was the Liverpool non goal at the Eddie had a now this is another one to add to the collection. Put I mean, burn city battered them for long periods. Tom Heaton, Greb big argument for him in in in terms of form as being England's number one or that he should being number one goalkeeper. You can't say that that city deserve it that turf moor tough place to go to Pepperdine spoken before. And about you know, Chris ward long balls kind of the acti- tooling game. They got that. But they got three points. And that's all that matters. Yeah. And look I mean possession was what you would expect it to be for city of something like seventy seven Twenty-three shots were what you would expect to be. I don't believe Burnley had single shot on target in. In the game was not even what they were really setting out to do. This was just hey today. We are Liverpool and we're gonna try to do this for Liverpool. Sensually? Yeah. They were one of the armies of the north at wanted. I would think as a Liverpool supporter you could watch that game. Even though it didn't go the way you wanted. You would at least look at Burnley and say, well, we appreciate the effort. Oh, it was there. Doff my hat to to the Deichmann. I wanna go a little bit deeper on Liverpool because the scenario that we've been talking about the the one win don't win scenario with each week that goes by it's not over like somebody said to me after this past weekend. So is that it now is city pretty much said, no absolutely not this is still on a razor's edge. But with each passing week, it grows closer to being a possibility. And I'm just now kind of reaching a point with Liverpool where I think I think almost crossed a threshold into they're so good and they're so deserving. This specific team is so deserving of a title that even though there. Club that I'll be Frank with you. I've got no love for. I will actually feel some sympathy for them if they don't win this title. They're that good. And they really should there. Other caliber, they should win a title with the reason they won't Andrew will not be probably over the next two games. Although it might be. So let me say this. I this weekend is the final window for slippage. No slippage doesn't come from Liverpool because Liverpool for some months now. Whether we like it or not whether we want to call this tight race or not have been behind city. It's just been a case of city of had that had that game handover city. I'm they've been to our city of how that game in hand over Liverpool. It you know, it's been relentless from city. Everytime Liverpool have gone back. Top city win. Their next game Liverpool won't win the league more than likely the games will be one out by both sides. Look at the form there in looking the way their players are playing, but it'd be because Liverpool didn't beat arsenal away didn't United away. They didn't. Be Chelsea away. And at the crucial moment when city had erred all of those months ago, but February they didn't beat that a charitable to strangle hold on the title. They didn't beat city. Didn't beat LeicesteR didn't beat Everton. They didn't beat West Ham. Doors will be the reasons most likely as we sit here right now that Liverpool won't win the title two drawn games where the chance to put the nail in the coffin of city back in January February direction, and that's that's the way the titans generally now looking specifically at this weekend. Leicester looked to me when you see that city was finished with Brighton. Even if it's Brighton away last or looked to me the last chance of an upset city under pep Guardiola haven't a entirely love playing last or certainly not in the first season. You could see some matchups in the midfield. That would be challenging or at least more of a challenge to man cities dominance in there. And maybe some point you see the vision of Thielemans on the ball Jimmy peeling off the lumbering legs of an aged company. This my fantasy by the way on spinning in behind in scoring. It's not an unrealistic one. That's what you can see Andrew dots the window. That's all there is left for Liverpool. I believe and also if you look at the Ronin who's most likely to make a mistake Liverpool can't slip because they're chasing. They're behind but Liverpool comic mistake. Newcastle away. You Casler buoyant? There is an emotion. Attachment between the two clubs Rafeh Benitez and older players are quite similar in their outlook and football to Liverpool except they've wound nothing that game could be highly charged and might nocco Liverpool's way. Well, you've got Barcelona Newcastle Barcelona wolves that is a challenging finish for it's difficult into the season. There's no question about it. Like, you said the Barcelona Champions League fixtures mixed in and we talked last week about wolves against the top six this year. They are the third best team specifically against those other clubs of any club in England. They may not win it's not entirely implausible that they really make difficult and it ends up dropping dropping two points. I guess the thing for me with Liverpool. When I say that I feel bad for them. If they don't pull the song preferred the football that they play to Manchester City. That's what it is. You've decided for me it's artistic merit you prefer watching the play. There's a thrill to it. But there's nothing boring about Manchester City to me, no Erling, son, Debrecen Aguayo. They're they're fun to watch. What it's more their their peers to be not projecting your own feelings on the matter on Hal. I know go on I'm sorry. The thing for me would Liverpool though is that when I look at them I want there to be a reason a tangible reason as to why they're not why they may not win the title. I want to say, well, they're midfield did this or there defending this or or upfront? This like they are to me they are a complete team. Like last year. We might have said, well, they're defending times. But that is like they're defending a strength there. We know what they aren't attack with the three headed monster of front. They're rufus. Is there anything that? You could look at at goalkeeper with Allison. I know he's had a couple moments throughout the season. Is there anything in the midfield? Naby cates. A maybe an L as of late. He's been a different player. But for. A large stretch of the season. He wasn't what I think Liverpool fans had hoped. He would be Jordan Henderson his role kind of switched a little bit. I is there is there something tangible. You can look at with them and say, okay. Well that right. There might have been the different. I mean the extent to which Roberta for me knows injured, but that's not an actual flow in the team. So no, there isn't look at the way the fullbacks are setting records in terms of assists in Robertson and Transat Arnold are tearing up the rule book. They're more like wingers. Now, look at virgin Van Dyke. We've got to later PFA player of the year zero no opposition player has completed dribble past verse Van Dyke in Anne of his thirty six primarily appearances this season is ruined stretches back to last March. Meaning he hasn't been dribble by an opponent in his last forty five primarily appearances just stuff like that. I don't see fit flaws the way the front three works. Traditionally it's not a creative midfield in in the normal sense. But like I said before it's all about executing the press how they press by presses coordinated soul. You know, if if I was being hypercritical, I'd say we have no ball playing midfielder who sets temple, but Liverpool's at temple in different ways to the older teams. It's fascinating. Maybe there's a little bit of an advantage not advantage. But some of the injuries that men city have been forced to deal with a week. Now, they do know game till Monday. But we saw Kevin LeBron's status. I guess is still a question. Yeah. We saw Fernandina oh, go off injured. Tink worrying Andrew if they were coming up against really top top tier like if they to finish with. If that finished with a fully fits bars, the our fully Chelsea or even had to play Liverpool in the running. But they don't they've got Brighton. And they've got Lester a youthful Lester lesser, good. We'll talk about that in a moment when we look back at their game against arsenal. If this is how how things go I suppose what we mentioned before twenty nine millimeters. This could this goal right here. Could be the difference. Not. Student. City. Tis the should do all commentary till the end of time. Did I read that the game? He did what was it last week for NBC or two weeks ago was the first Premier League game? He had ever done. He's done Champions League games. He's done international games. But that might be correct. Because he worked predominantly for who did not have the rights throat the that could be right. Isn't that wild? It is crazy. I'm sure he did I division games when he was cutting his teeth back in the late eighties early nineties. He may not have though, that's crazy. Well, you alluded to it before. But Virgil Van Dyke won the PFA player of the year. He did. And I think it was correct and proper that the football writers Dan, give starting the player their player of the year. There seems to be a nice balance to that. Yeah. Honestly, it's it's fair. It's too like I dunno throw like put both names in a hat and pick one right? And also, but it's nice to see for me for the PF. After two year. I know we've had defensive central midfielders in the past Kante, most notably. But I do like the fact that her house or being acknowledged again, you have you had John Terry the vintage one. Yeah. But their sparse that, you know, the creative players always seem to come to the fore. I understand that in the NFL a quarterback is gonna win MVP almost every single year. You're not gonna see many offensive lineman. All right. But it's good technology. Someone who is as with the prowess that he has because he plays centreback in in a way, that's very pleasing. Yeah. I mean, look what they do is a little bit more heart. It's harder to quantify the effective center bay it is but at the same time if you have goals, and assists like tangible things you can point to when you've got centre-halves like look at look at the previous center house to have won the PF of the year. Like, John, Terry. Paul McGrath Aston Villa if they were exceptional in what they did. You can see them win. Tacos. You can see them throw their body on the line. You can see them in the case of virgin Van Dyke initiate attacks from the back. So I like to see that. I got no problem with it. And like you said, I have no problem with rain. Sterling winning the pro football writers player. He's been he's being exceptional on and off the field. When you think about the last year, he's had he's risen to a place of prominence. No young player of the year at the PFA awards is slightly weird. Or because he is a young man. But he is not a young man in terms of the game. He is stabbed. He's a vet. He's a veteran. I mean, he's a veteran of title of how many four title chases now. Come on. Yeah. That was jarring. When I saw him win. That though is an American idea floated by one of the stats pods. Michael L Goodman, who's a nice, man. I shouldn't be so mean, and he said he talked about rookie of the year. It what's so bad about the we need a better. Arthur rookie can't say rookie newcomer of the year. That can you imagine you rookie the can't say that Canada newcomer. I'd like to know why Americans were just assigned that voice by you. That me what is that? With you. Does you? Yeah. We can't say rookie. But I would agree with them in principle. It seems odd to start an award which PFA vers PF w the pro which which award d think player would more want to win if he he wants to respect of his peers than the FA. But then he realizes these guys voted match and often don't watch a hunch is made the point players will watch. Right. And he said back in his day in the sixties and seventies the form used to come in. They didn't know half the players, and they only Mark down the ones they'd played against. So you've got this kind of just the good players. The guys that impressed them. The football writers for me will be the one people who see so many games have such a breath of of analysis available to them. Let's see we moved from the top of the table. Now down a couple of slots to the battle for the top four and what a battle. This is turning out to be kind of a feeble Dattel sorta just like there's a family guy dropped that. I didn't put in where they do something about j Jalen hall and his sister, Becky. Maggie maggie. And it's like arguing over who's the worst Jilin hole. And they both argue now, I'm more unrelatable on camera. And then this guy comes in. And he goes kids kids, please, you're both cherub. And that's what I feel about the top. For is. All you guys are just awful. Can I go VH one behind the music, of course? So so my girlfriend Darcy as you know, as a huge Spurs fan. So she's swearing up. A storm at the weekend over this result really annoyed about it. And like, obviously, she's in the apartment with me. So I think of her, but my mind goes straight to you it does. And you know, the way I cast you smile. Creeps across your face. Well, can I can I tell people that? I don't I love you. You're one of my best friends, but I don't want. I don't wish misfortune on you. But when when bad things happen to you, I can't help. But laugh, for example, there's an ad that runs that's beautiful. There's an ad that runs on FOX on the Netware work over series issue where it's called the lie. Flock where when people fall over they press the button, and they can alert the emergency services. Whenever I see it. I think of you falling over like all in. All in, and I can get up this image of you on the floor writhing around like a beetle, and I don't wear coz from and I laugh for five minutes because it's it's fortunate for you. And I cast you as old gale as well. So when that goal went in for Michaela Tonio could think of was you in your living room? The sale was. Nudie here somewhere ban out. That is true friendship. Isn't it? So that's just for people when bad things happen. It's not that. I hate Spurs or anything. I don't have the disdain that you have for Liverpool. Correct. But it's because. I imagine you freaking out. Somebody tweeted at me. And then you couldn't wait to re tweet it from the official show account that I am a Tottenham Kurt. That's not true. And I read that tweet, and I was like that's not true. I I rarely tweet you know, for my own account. But I saw and I was like, okay. Wait a minute. Tottenham her about to play in a champion's league semifinal who's cursed here. Not to mention the fact that look like as Tottenham continue to lose these games in the league in the least Spurs moment in EPL history. Everyone else's losing around them. Yeah. Everyone is doing all of the things that they need to remain in the spot that they're just respond Champions League semi-finalists. So, you know, I basically did I said reminder Tottenham are just beat Manchester City to advanced champions semifinal. Yeah. Look, I said on last week's podcast, and what's watch for for whatever reason. I don't know why if it's purely one of those it's Darby match throw records out the window West Ham or pain in that ask for Tottenham and have been for a number of years. Now, can can I put a question to from listener, Luke golden who is president of the New York, golden hammers. Supporters. Hope he asked was this a success for West Ham or failure for Spurs. I would say success for west time. I agree western played. Well, there was nothing fluky about that result. It's not like they've been brilliant of late. They've been okay. I'm glad I mean for West Ham. Glad mckell Antonio scored the goal because he deserved it. Because he was he was getting Tottenham fits for. I don't know so much about the first effort in the second half felt like it could have maybe a couple more. It's just annoying to hand your first defeat in your new building to them, isn't it? Yeah. And I guess that's something that they'll you know, they'll have with them forever. So all right, whatever it takes to get through the day. I suppose I did wanna read this though, this is a tweet from Simon stone of the BBC. He says this about this race for the top four currently in nine days in the last nine days Spurs Chelsea arsenal. And Manchester United have dropped a total of twenty seven points. Man. City and Liverpool have dropped thirty three between them all season. There is a clear gap between the top two right now. And then the rest, oh, it's it's enormous. Like, it's it's even clearer to me than maybe the gap between, you know, Manchester United and wolves slash way. Oh, no. Closer to the United then everyone else's to city and Liverpool. They have ever put obviously mean building for about three years and city of being building for since twenty twelve since they imported the buyers, Luna brain tank into into Manchester and delectable at which they're playing Andrew the intricacies of their press. And the way they play its way way ahead of everyone else. Yeah. It's which is and look some conversation for another day. But it's concerning. The you look at these teams right now. And I don't know if you want to say, oh, they're all bottling it collectively. But I don't even know if it's that. I just don't know if they're if they're good enough to be of a level where you just expect them to win every week. And that's not let's be honest Burs is. Spurs thin squad is stretched to the maximum right now they're talking about not releasing seventeen year olds to to the European championships. Because there might need them to be part of a time Zeke panel. So that's part. Not does factor into. I would love to see the miles that the current stacking Spurs Levin of put up it's look it's not good. You know, you can't complain because you just don't get the complaint. Oh, but okay, 'cause I would say, yeah. You do get the complaint. Like most of your best players are missing time. I dunno. It's not complain. It's more. Harry wings, just had surgery. He's done for the season. Crazy like you. Have you have this? No strengthened. There's one thing you need to know. I texted you during near the end of the Brighton game. When it was still nil nil. And emerging from the sideline was Vincent Yanyan a player that I actually forgot existed. I forgot where he was. I thought he was on loan summer. No, no, no. He's been he's been here. All along kind of said, well, I guess desperate times call for desperate measures. Like he is now back in the fold. This is like. That's incredible. Paycheck for the last two years for for watt credible. Here's another tweet from at. I am not all e murs. He said Tottenham played fifty four games this season in all competitions. Cain son, Ericsson Delhi have started together in just ten of them. Right. And they're third and in a championship semifinal, and they signed no one and they played the urine web hotch is some kind of alchemist. He's yeah. He's a magician in some of the other games in the top four arsenal losing to Leicester City. Three nil. Three straight games now arsenal of conceded. Three goals. We yeah. And I get a guy tweet not me tell me, oh, you know, at since I can't even remember who who got injured since one of their defenders got injured moustache Socrates and cushy. I only have been the preferred centre-half partnership and Socrates has done grave has he what did you see him at the weekend that long ball over the top? No, she any makes a mess of. But Socrates isn't quick enough to go around and cover enough. But if we're laying blame come on ninety percent of that is kashani. Gone read it Andrew as a retreat center. He's not quick enough. Soccer. I don't hear about them. They need to rebuild up backline lenna. What was he doing? Then on a grid him. Some brilliant says where's the starting position on the kid goes caught in between two minds to he wasn't sure to Credit's due I credit Schmidt guilt for ping in Edison esque. Oh, it was it was it was great strict on the field because in a cyst, and you saw like there was no accident there already kind of like put his hand up Schmeichal Saad, and then bang just paint it right to them. It was really the first year. We're talking about long balls on doing an SNL centreback partnership. Look at the League Cup final last season. Remember just one big long ball over the top. They've got problems in the back. There's no question on the goal. Remember that oh now with regards to arsenal? Who knows maybe this would have gone differently but Maitland Niles was sent off. Now, there's been a little bit of controversy over that because seemed to be two sides that are not willing to bend the side. That says these are both yellow cards, and he deserved the side. That says no, they're absolutely are not I'm on the I'm on the side. This is neither of them. Maybe the second one's the Chinese. But the first one is shoulder to shoulder. Now, if you want to say to me, hey old man, the shoulder to shoulder slowly, but surely being removed from the game such as is the ball and man tackle where you win the ball. And then you have to take them with you. And maybe that's the case children shoulder. Andrew he doesn't raise his arm. He hits him square. But you have to have to ask yourself. Why is he doing it? Like, we we are in a time. Now where I think referees are are doing more and more to try to. To eliminate the cynical foul. It'll never not be part of the game because you have to do it. But that that play show. Well is in space like he has played the ball acres to get into. But he's going to get to it. There's no question about it. He's going to get to it. So when Maitland Niles does that it's a cynical fell and that throughout the season. And the last season has been a yellow car shoulder to shoulder is not a phone. He does it to obstruct show. Well, chill wells getting to that ball. All right. That's why does it. And I thought the second one Madison was like over to like, you know, I know you didn't mean it Madison had played the ball. If anything the noise stayed on his feet. Yes. And that's why when you're on a yellow car, I looked go in as late as Maitland Niles does uncomfortable with that being yellow car to I watched it again, he's barely caught him. If I don't think he's caught him at all actually, reckless reckless. Here's what it here was the analysis afterwards challenge. Markle try to play advantage coming down slots in Sherri, yellow cop. Complaints. Yeah. Red card that is let's see Manchester United and Chelsea finished one one. Oh, Debra hair. My sweet avid what has happened to you about partly? What's happening is he's moving to Paris. Credible. What do you do in this scenario? Gene, you in right has a suggestion. What did he writes it sit him down? I'm put Romero Romero time. Yeah. You see it's not like you're sitting. It's not like you're sitting a goalkeeper that's been giving you trouble for a long long time. He's out of form since the world cope, if you if you want to say that he's also putting a lot about that. He's putting a lot of good performances was for United. He's had a lot more to do than most Manetti. Cool keepers should have to do you think? But the mistakes the arrows, that's the thing. But will this not compound things and make it worse? He's got the and no you're you're giving him. He won't he will want to play the next game. I'm not sure if he's so let's say he has the yes. And you feel like you need to, cultivate, him and be careful with him. Yeah. I would agree with that. If you're if he is your long term plan at this position. But you just said what did you say when we started talking about here? It's going to Paris will the tall. What are you saving them for? What are you trying to worry about his psyche for Manchester United desperate to get back in the champions Li like the time for coddling is over? So I mean, it was it. It was just a dreadful her to Hayes made three errors leading to goals in his last four games in all competitions for United as many as in his previous one hundred twenty three matches combined for Manchester United. So some you're right. This is so out of character. And it's for that reason that, you know, your gut is to say stick with them like he's done so much for you. But I don't know, man. Maybe it's harsh, but I just feel like we're past that now it's these games to important and they're giving away too many points. They could be they could be in third right now. I cannot believe that it's in only going to sell shares plans. He's just got the job to move on one of the best goalkeepers in the world campy on. I think this. I think if it's a bad it's bad for their relationship. It's bad for social if he drops them. No, I think he should just write it out. I think he has two Andrew on less. He knows something that you suggested that he will be moving. First of all, you suggested that I don't deal that was the rumor I saw today on one of those newspaper websites. Oh deal in rumors. That's our look at the Premier League for now before we take a break. I do want to get into a little bit of the stuff from the championship between villa and leads of sure most people listen to the show that means you're probably like in it enough that you've seen what happened player got hurt for Aston Villa? Stay down. Well player got hurt for Leeds asked Philip with the ball out prior to that. Right, right. But the main issue was player frost Avila goes down leads play on in the middle of playing on Aston Villa players are ruining towards the players in Leeds players and possession waving their hands indicating to kick it out. It goes to the left back who name escapes me for leads. He points as if he's kicking it out. He plays it down the line to was at click who goes in and scores the goal and the next thing there's Connor Horan loses his respective mind gets into it. There's all sorts of arms flailing, Patrick Bamford decides to go. For an Oscar winning platoon performance. I haven't seen yet if he's been punished retroactive race. There is precedent to to match ban has gone to players before who who feign injury to try to get red cards and situation. So John Terry's on the sideline, and it wouldn't be John Terry to being attract sued and not find a way to be involved. So there's words be Elsa. Indicates to his players that they're to let Aston Villa from the restart run the ball into the net that should be fine except Pontiac. The centre-back is not on that script attempts to tackle the villa player who slides into an empty net. Crazy still unbelievable scenes in a game of importance. I guess they're both now at that point. I think they were consigned would've taken a crazy gold. Swing to hold off Sheffield United. And I think that plays into a little bit of his thinking, by the way, it was a feisty affair Cooper coulda gone for times English. Dallas coulda gone for long releases. Well, be Elsa. Got a yellow card before even a Leeds player. Got a yellow card. It's interesting to me. This is what he said afterwards suggesting that what he did was very much in the Spurs of that game. That's played an album, the this is his interpreter answering English bullies known for spokeman ship. So I don't have to comment. Discount thing that is committing. Suggesting that oh, I just did what when in Rome do as the Romans right like when he was assigning scouts to go. Hi spy on the phone I comply fully with all the English manners. I'm wondering I'm wondering. Is this a long game by the wily all be Elsa? Is he realizing scam doesn't mater we're going into the playoffs. We could very well faith faced asked him villa. Right. Are we trying to put into the minds of referees? The fairness and the because they're only human the fairness and the Carinthian spirit that just seeps from legion. Is it and that it should a contentious decision come up that we need to go away in the semi final artificial that. It's in the minds of the officials. Hey that Bielsa. He's a good guy. He's a solid potato. Why do you why are you doing this not everything is so deep can't it just be he has is in a brain. And saw what happened and thought none or no that's wrong. Let's do the right thing. He's not trying to send him because he is. No the flavor of the month in England because he did. The right thing if villa and leads work to meet because right now leads third villa or fit right now. It's going to be as it stands with his games left. There's games today derby today, and there's also games on Sunday, the fifth the last the last weekend of the championship. My God is gonna lead United versus Darabi with the first Darby and West Brom B villa? I like Aston Villa those of the playoffs as it stands now that could change. I feel like are running out of steam. I really do Vidar villa. Look like the form team. Goes Choon in for the playoffs. There will be fireworks. They're certainly will there always are. They're they're always really really is. They're they're so much fun. Was there before we take a break? We'll talk to crystal done in a few moments. Was there any part of you? Because there there is kind of the American brain in me that was watching it and thinking that okay? What what's happening here with leads? This is wrong. But what you did see it transpiring. There was a moment where you your brain kind of clicks on. And you thought oh, my God leads are not they're not playing out here. There will villa were totally wrong in not playing to the west yet. They stood up there. Centre-half stood up their midfield stood up. Totally wrong. You can't take for granted. And just stop the game. You are not the arbiter you are not in control. It's it was crazy. And unfortunately for people who don't really follow soccer who saw this and said to me, you know, why can't the referee blow the whistle. It's I'm sorry. There's too much ambiguity in soccer with players going down. Faking injuries. Yeah. It's just a thing. That's unfortunately, it's too common in the sport. And a referee. Can't really it's hard for him to be in the position to always have to dictate when that should or should not have any. He does the best. He can with head injuries. That's supposed to stop play mmediately. But for stuff like this for muscle cramps things like that it it kind of is. This is the system that has worked for long enough. Yes. Conflict arises every once in a while. But I don't see a way there's no easy fix for a referee to make the decision on the spot who is an isn't actually her hat to play on there. And they didn't. Yeah. So in the end all's well that ends well, I suppose is what you would say did do the right to be continued tell you what we're going to take a very quick break. When we come back really excited about this JJ, we're gonna speak with crystal done of the US women's national team that should be a fun conversation. She's awesome. As the US are getting ready for camp. What next week I think and then the World Cup is the summer. So should be fun. Also, we will do a quick kind of brief look at the Champions League first legs. But like I said really the recap pot for that will be tomorrow night. Don't go anywhere. Still a ton to do. I can't believe it. That Philip brought his little brother on our mission into orbit along until it got their long. We get there. I'll learn to get there. No. I can't believe how easy it was to save hundreds of dollars on my car insurance with Geico. What's this button? Do what's this button? Do what's this button? Do what's this? Believe that. Geico could save you percent or more on car insurance. Oh back now on caught offside gonna give a quick Champions League. Final first leg preview in just a moment. But JJ we are really excited about this. The World Cup women's World Cup is coming up this summer. Crystal done has emerged as one of the great stars for the US women's national team eighty three caps twenty four goals were so happy to have her on the show. Now, courtesy of Proctor and gamble. Walgreens. Which will ask her about in just a moment crystal? What's up? How are you doing? Well, how are you guys? We're good. I guess now JJ I've been good. We haven't mentioned this yet. Because so many people are so frightened about spoilers and things. But I saw you tweet I think last week or two weeks ago game of thrones. So I do need to ask. If you've seen the episode. This had not I had a game actually Sunday. And I couldn't watch it then and my travel day was Monday. So I'm just behind and I have to say off Twitter. I can't do it. I can't do it. We should mention that anything. Let me just ask you watch the show who do you? If if you had to your root for for the night king, obviously, not I mean, I'm a huge John snow fan. I think he I was his journey. He didn't even know who he was for half of half all of the show, basically and just finds out. And I think he's just an awesome character. You know, he's like so humble he's like I just wanna do the right thing to kind of just one help everybody else myself. So this is you this. You've seen yourself in John snow. Yes. Totally much more of a ho door. Oh, reliable sturdy repeat the same things over and over to shreds by white walkers. Yeah. That's what can I do a classic link. Crystal, Don, you said, you know, John snow's on a journey who is who. Are you crystal done because I've been looking back at the recent teams that the US women's national team of put out, and I also this podcast that you did recently. And so you play the left side of midfield. Three versus Belgium, left back in about four versus trillion Brazil right side of midfield in the defeat to France. And some people still call you a forward are striker who are you? I'm very confused. Clearly, you cannot see but. Yeah, that's just my identity. You know? And I think you know, it's not easy. I've always told myself it would be lovely to wake up every day. And just you know, commit to one part of your game. You know, if you're a striker working on shooting finishing those kind of drills. But I think for me, it's always. Then you have to work on everything because you have to be prepared to play everything, you know. And it is not easy. You know? But I think it is a part of who I am. And that's just how it is. Do you need to be versatile to get into this team considering the talent? Totally you have to be ready for whatever, you know. And I think that's the new identity of our team. And that's just where soccer's going. You know, I think the sport is always growing always finding new ways and new fun things to add to the game. And I think being versatile is key. I think you see it a lot on the men's side, you see it more so on the women's side. And, you know, nobody's really only specialize in one thing anymore. It's interesting because you know, I think most people when they look at the US women's team, they do view you in maybe more of a defensive role. But now it's early in the end WFL with North Carolina. But you've jumped out to the lead in goals tacking role. Now, I mean, how much would you say your game has evolved in that way? Yeah. My game. I that's just who I am. I always think I'm always trying to push this game to new levels. And you know, for me, it's you know, showing the world. Yeah. You know, I play back on the national team. Do I think it's my best position? I would say, no. No, I think I'm clearly an attacking player. I'm currently, you know, scoring a bunch of goals, and assists and things like that. And I think it's it's great for me to show the world that you can be good at multiple things. And you don't have to be labelled as one thing. Crystal, your Chelsea. Yeah. How did that form? You know, you as as a player on what were the differences. We say between the primarily in England and the end of US over here. My time in in England was incredible. If I can go back tomorrow, I totally would I love the area. London is a cool cool city. You know, and for me, I learned so much about the game everything. And in England is learning the game knowing the game, not just, you know being athletic, but you know, being able to break teams down with your mind, you know, and I think that's what I really took away from my time at Chelsea is. You know, you could be facile you want. But if teams are not giving space in behind how do you break them down, you know? And I think my technical game had to get better because it was no longer just about running. It was about you know, like it's playing in small spaces and breaking teams down. And yeah, the legal. There is is quite similar to yourself. You know, I think the difference is the NFL is very transition base league. There's a lot of. There's a lot of room to run. Whereas in England teams are a bit more on the conservative side. You know, if you're playing against the top teams in England, you know, two maybe probably try and have a five back. You know? I think in the NFL teams just play. They try to play up outright, which creates a lot more space for tradition and in in England, there wasn't that much space. Christo? Do find yourself when you're playing over here in the United States. I know you mentioned on the podcast. I listen to you talked a little bit of a kick and run. And I'm not suggesting that you said that the American League is just kicking Ron what you did say that it was a technical difference. Ju-? Find yourself in games thinking when you get the ball. What look I'm going to try and be a bit more creative here because it's not going to cut it when I played at the higher level. Oh, definitely I think I've always been fast my whole life, and I loved that. I think game you obviously have to be athletic in a lot of ways. But I also think that you know in order to really improve at your game. You can't rely on just one thing. And I think that's what I try to. Take take with myself every training is just getting better and all aspects. And that's just that's just what I need to do. I need to break down teams in every way. Whether it's over the top, you know through the middle or or whatever, but I just need to find new ways of succeeding, crystal. Don, joining us here on caught offside, I wanna go back to your time with Chelsea this something I'm curious about. And I hope I get this across in the right way. We've spoken to some US men before who have played over in England. And you know, sometimes we'll ask them is there some kind of chip on your shoulder because for whatever reason like the American game with US men is just not viewed at the level that it is in Europe. But what about for you because the US women are so dominant like do US women go over to England. And there's almost like a different like an opposite kind of aura around you guys. Because of how good American women have been I'm yeah. I think when I went to Chelsea, you know, my teammates a really good job of just not treating me any different. You know, I think I joined a great Rupa group of players where you know. They welcomed me. But at the same time, they were like, you have to earn your keep, you know. And I think that's really what people need is that feeling of you know, it's a new sleep for, ma'am. New player. You're getting to know me, and and I really have to perform in order to really get a starting spot. And I think that's what I felt Chelsea was just that constant competitiveness. And and you know, just being welcomed crystal. Can we talk about twenty fifteen of course, we can reminds. Well, okay. So did I ever talk to you about why you didn't make the twenty four. What were the reasons not really to be fair? I've actually never had that talk with Joe, I think, you know, kind of just not awkward. I mean, maybe more awkward for her than me. Kinda was just like you know, when I was invited back into the next camp after the World Cup. It was kinda like let's just not talk about it. You know and to be fair. I didn't need to talk about it. You know, her decision was her decision. And you know, she's still my coach obviously now, and I I don't have any. Ill feelings toward her. I think if anything, you know, I grew in a different way that I probably wouldn't have had I made that team. So to me, I'm like onto the next and I'm exactly where I need to be four years later. So yeah. Barring someone like forgetting to submit a form or something they're going to be on this team. So inside what is the feeling among this group right now what the strengths and weaknesses? How are you guys feeling as you prepare for the summer? Yeah. I think you know, it's interesting because we're we're we've all been away with our own clubs. So we actually haven't been in camps for a while. And you know, now, we have campaign a couple of days, and we're going to get back together and really refocus and only focus on the World Cup now. So I think everyone's ready we've all been preparing in our own markets. And you know, everyone's preparation has been different different games that they played against in. I think we're ready. I think this is the new turn that we're in right now where we are fully focusing on only the World Cup crucial quite apart. From the fact that the US women's national team our World Cup champions. There is a. A sense from abroad about them. I'm not using the term arrogance, but I would say brash day, there is more exposure of the US players on social media. There's more endorsements. There's probably more money if we look at it. And they it creates a target on your back. Do you do feel when you play against teams that are trying to take down a peg that they perhaps perform a notch a percent higher when they come up against the stars and stripes. Definitely I think I've always told people it's so hard to watch film. Because when you're watching film on another team on the team you're playing play against another team. You know, you're like, oh, that's you know, that's fine. That's what they do. But then when they play against you. They don't do that, you know. So it's almost like what are watch films players not doing the same thing. She was doing she's you know, she's doing completely different. But I think you know, we've always had target on our back. We've always felt like, you know, where the pioneers of women's soccer, you know. And I think pressure is great. You know, we're always under pressure were always under pressure to perform and win World Cups. But I think. Inc. Individually. We just have to know that you have to want it every single day. It's not enough to say for years ago. We won the World Cup. You know, it's about this new World Cup with a new group of girls. And you know, everyone has to be at their best crystals here with us today on behalf of P and G and Walgreens to share few beauty secrets that keep her feeling confident and fresh on and off the field. So what do you got? Yeah. So honestly, I always think as an athlete, obviously, it's important to just take care of yourself. You know, we're coming off the field, and I play an extreme heat all the time. So everyone needs a good deodorant. You know, and for me. I'm I secret outlast, it's an awesome, the older that I feel like just makes me feel confident about just being active, you know, and same with away body wash. I think you know, after trainings, you have good shower, you feeling fresh ready to go and allays is really great on the skin. And of course, playing in the sun like you got to protect yourself. So those two products are just incredible. And and they've worked really well for me crucial. The big question. Do you go with the spread the order? Do you go at stick? You know, what's weird over in England? Everyone had sprayed. I thought I was really weird for rolling on the odorant. And I was like guys am I that weird only one? So okay. You have an accent. I can I can hear that. Because of the clammliness, you know, the way kind of clams up and people like it's not good hygiene, Mike. Okay, stop it. But yes, there was a huge debate. When I got there. So I'm on. I'm all about both. I think both are cool just for just starting to up to. But just, you know, your go to moisturizer, obviously. Yes. If I could have that what is your go to moisturizer? Well, ole has a really great one. So obviously, I'm gonna hardcore promote them because there's is really great. And I don't know if you like put on lotion a lot every single day. But I know for me like I have to put on lotion. Like I and I have to have good body wash too. So that my skin just feels ready to go. Andrew does not moisturizer. I actually showering his optional. So this is here. The visit your local. Walgreens or Walgreens dot com and made by one secret the odor and get a second fifty percent off. Plus take advantage of a two for eleven dollar deal on ole body wash crystal before we let you go. So you honored Serena Williams on the back of your jersey at the the she believes Cup. Have you ever had a chance to meet or speak with her? Asking me that actually today on the line right now. Now, I'm kidding. Yeah. We we don't make dreams come true. I wish you guys did. But no that is my dream is to meet her just like brush shoulders with her something, I don't know in terms of of soccer inspiration right now. Who who would you look to honestly, the girls that currently play with or just incredible? And of course, you know, you have Abby Wambach who I had the chance of overlapping with for some years, and I'm still playing with Carli, Lloyd. It's like it's still incredible. So for me, I'm like I dig the current players. And obviously I'd be while. I'm back in me, a ham just all the cliches Well, I'll tell you what. This was awesome. We wish you the best of luck as the NWS L rolls on. Then of course, the summer with the women's World Cup team. Hope you enjoy the game of thrones up. So that you need to catch up on will don't spill anything on us. I wanna say words crystallises awesome. Thanks so much. We pre-state your time. Thank you very much. Oh, crystal, John. That was great. She's awesome. Super cool. Yeah. What a hybrid player, though, she's asked to do a lot of the embodiment of total football Rheos. Yeah. Or the embodiment of John O'Shea? That's right. He's a striker. Don't forget that the plan gold. Let's see we've got a very brief what to watch for coming up in in seconds. Really? But before that JJ, you have something to tell us that davits Obama had a hair transplant. No. Apparently he did. Well, he was he had shaved his habit. You have to do it from the future. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. And then he he asked the go for all the hair possible onto his head. But you know, what he should've just gone with him 's do, you know that sixty six percent of men lose their hair by the age of thirty five aren't his case thirty two not all of it.

Can you can you tell I'm behind his product. Let's see brief what to watch for just the Champions League. Semi-final first legs today. A few hours from now. Three o'clock Tottenham Nayak's. I don't wanna go too in depth on this. Because by the time, you listen probably already know what happened the one interesting thing Patino for Spurs in ten hag of IX seem to have a little little mini thing. Going on here right now pots, which is moaning for. No good reason. Bursar disadvantage with their injuries, which are thing. And the fact that they played on Saturday. Okay. Well, then with your organization to change that Dutch league was off to help. But this was Jesuit for months. I've got Reuters hair Dutch FA route specify at least two days of rest between games and that all clubs play on the last two matches hag responded to pop saying we get ten million euros per playing in the air V C, and they get many more millions being in the Premier League is that not unfair to us. They're always different circumstances. Everybody has different circumstances. You just have to deal with them. That's what we do. It's true. I'll give you Eric Guida. Who is the technical director of the KNVB? The Dutch FA we have discussed various scenarios this decision has been discussed with all the clubs, but they must of course, still discuss this with the municipalities on the police. So they sorted that out the games got cold. What is really nice is. The reason why this was necessary the semi final place in the Champions League. Not only I XE, but all Dutch football benefits from this. And that's what I like. It's the community sense bottom line. You don't have that in the Premier League. It's so try ballistic and broken up a great point. Oh, but he will do you think West Ham? We're gonna change their fixture for Spurs. Not happen. Look, I think they're both right. Like Pacino is right. Tottenham have some really bad injuries. Like, we said, Vincent Janssen is playing important minutes right now for Spurs tells you everything we need to know, your honorable Anson all the time attorney JJ forgot he was like I didn't remember him. I didn't remember him. But by the same token, I actua right to like the advantages that some of these EPL sites have money differences things like that. And how well. How often does this come up lately for exit dodger teams what it's left us with is an incredibly even matchup ESP? I think was fifty one percent chance going through for I XE. So I mean, we're talking about basically a toss up here. It should be fascinating. And then tomorrow Barcelona and Liverpool also fascinating Barsa unbeaten in their last. Thirty one home games in the Champions League. That's crazy. Twenty eight wins three draws haven't lost late January against via however JJ there is one and only one in list club that has ever gone to the camp now and one of the Champions League. That's liberty football club with goals from kite and Craig Bellamy in two thousand seven and it's actually been I said that Barscelona haven't lost since late January. It's actually been even longer since Liverpool have and that wasn't even in the league. That was in the FA Cup to wolves on January seventh. I know you don't wanna hear this. But I really think Liverpool might be properly suited to deal with Barscelona. Yes. I know the ways we can call caused him problems. But in my mind, there is no way that our midfield is even in the same league as their midfield. So the things that we do well coordinated press and winning the ball field have to hop. Do is going to expend a lot energy. Do you envision any any sitting back not Porton the bus? But do you envision any of that it won't work it won't work? Well, sid low spoke a little bit about this matchup. We've had him on recently expert in alita and Barcelona. He talked about this. I d of Liverpool Kana being well-suited to deal with Barcelona. Here's what he says about Liverpool's front three. I genuinely don't think boss. Lana have come up against same. The bells that over the course of the season. And obviously one be able to keep up for ninety minutes across five games. But I do think there's a there's a potential one of these kind of Liverpool bursts lot. We saw against Manchester City last year could do boss on an enormous amount of damage now that's not Silopi Wilco fruit. But I do think the quite well equipped to make very very difficult and David. On. I will know slightly lean toward saying might even be favorites. But it would be very very time. He's talking about the lightning starts again. Still find talking about remember remember milliner crashing into a tackle and ball breaks Chamberlain, and he buries past Edison that kind of stuff. Bush gets is going to have more pressure on them and racquets is have more pressure on them that midfield in general is going to be pressurized in a way, they probably aren't in Spain week tweak. That's going to be interesting. But should bash loan to be able to play between Liverpool lines on kind of play out of the press? Then that's another another thing. I looked the x factor. Here is always the x factor when Barcelona play and that is messy like if he just happens to have one of those games where he's who frankly who he's been for all of the season than they become almost impossible to contain. How imperious performance would take from virgin Van Dyke to go hundred eighty minutes versus messy and still keep that record of not being dribbled past in thirty six games. Yeah. This this is the test, right? This would be the test other guys to watch out for in this. I would say saudi-omani for as great players is still seems to fly under the radar for Liverpool fullback as well. Two fullbacks are going to be absolutely crucial. They're going to give Barcelona something to think about. Going the other way, but they're going to have to defend and I do believe that they do both. It's bears mentioning by the way. I know. I said I would talk about this on last week's podcast should had happened. And it did Barscelona did win their title in the league over the weekend. Eight titles and eleven years for Barsa messy first team, captain. So congratulations to him Barscelona. I don't I don't need to sit here and tell you how dominant they are. But now I will they've lost three times in the last two seasons in lull IGA and one of those was last year after they had already wrapped up the league title. This team does not lose. But Liverpool lost just once this year premier. Look it was a different Barcelona team to play no seven. But maybe what we need is a fight between and Bellamy that'll do it prior to the game and two thousand seven they had a fight on the golf course. And apparently Bellamy attacked coast with a golf tub. That's where the happy Gilmore. That's where the whole celebration came from when Bellamy scores he goes to the corner flag. Like, it's a golf swing. This should be fascinating both of these Champions League semi finals. I really I'm excited. I'm clearly excited as you are as well. This is the best football on offer around anywhere in the planet these nights. Well, hey, this was a lot of fun are thanks to crystal done. Joining us that was really cool look forward to watching more of her in the NWS L and with the women's national all over to seize on the women's national team.

"Caught offside with ED re gumming and jj any. Oh yes. Caught offside from the the upper west side of Manhattan Andrew Gulling and J. J. D. Veni Happy New Year Happy New Year Andrew. Happy Mucus New Year as as I begin the new year with some kind of a head cold which makes me sound very nays Louis But I think adds a little bit more gravitas to my voice No no it doesn't You sound exactly the same just maybe like you said a little more nasal. Everyone is sick though. So you're just like you're part of the majority right now. I feel like everyone I know is dealing with something I personally have never felt better a never felt more alive. So I don't I can't really relate to any of you not on the walking dead here in Ireland on. I'm not even joking. So many people who are just got this head called the flu is the flu was taken over. It's there's been a twenty percent rise in it or something like that since last year. It's ridiculous Oh boy. Well I'll tell you what's not ridiculous this podcast. I'm so excited about this podcast. The the festive period as it is called by everyone. There really is no other name for it. I kind of wish there was. I don't know I don't really use the word festive very often. I feel kind of uncomfortable using using it so so Willy Nilly when we talk about soccer but the festive period is finished So we're going to give our winners and losers from. What would you consider this to be the last two weeks I guess Yeah No? I think you would begin with the Games just the last game before Christmas Day. Since Stevens Dave are boxing day fixtures and then the new year's fixtures that kind of that kind of last two week period. That's that's what we're talking about before. I do any of if that though I do want to get in the habit of doing one thing. It's the start of a new year and I feel like I I. If you're going to have good habits beginning they they have to start now So I I WANNA make a habit of reminding people To please subscribe to our podcast specifically I know a lot of you. Download caught offside died in the ESPN AFC channel on wherever it. Is You get your podcast but just know that caught off side we do have our own podcast feed so while we prefer you. Grab the podcast from that. Some people ask me on twitter sometimes. Jj if that helps our downloads or anything like that. I don't think that it. Actually she does but what. It is is me preparing for the day that the people at ESPN FC. Say Okay No more you go on your own and when that day comes there once what's they realize they're being soundly and roundly beaten regularly They'll kick us out. We will then enter our own podcasting. superleague nick no but seriously but yeah I just feel like that day is GonNa Look we're in a doomsday. Scenario hair people we get kicked off. DSP NFC feed feed where you're gonNA find US download a psychot- off site on I tunes follow us. Even follow us. If you've got spotify but you don't listen on spotify follow us on spotify too just thinking. Yeah so that's that's really. I just want people to be getting us from from the best place possible which I believe is from our own personal podcast feed every once in a while we do have some kind of like original creative content that we put on there that we won't put on other podcast feeds but mainly. It's just preparing for the day when when that will be the only place that you can get this podcast and of course I I should also tell people who rate review the PODCAST Because that helps our visibility it helps other people find us. That maybe aren't aware of US right now. So that's good because is the more people listening The better it is for the world. That's how I feel about this. So here's the deal Vani I have here the the first part of the PODCAST. My three winners from the festive period. And then we'll take a very short break and then we'll do the second part which will be our losers I don't know about you. I have confined find mine to the Premier League. Only I hope that's just the primarily going the although I do realize the new year. They're so much in the championship. I WanNa talk about and there's so much going on in European football that we need to talk about but for for now. Let's keep you competitive. I didn't think you're GONNA start that with the championship. I thought you were gonNA say like Lolita or maybe the Bundesliga but no you go right to your bread and butter which is by the way Lindsay second-division speaking of bread and butter. We need to talk quickly quickly and I mean quickly because I know you wanna get on with this before we go to the quite excellent winners and losers we have possibly Andrew arrival level for the greatest drop. We had no the greatest drop we've ever had or the most popular drop we've ever had is of course what Diego Maradonna clearly. Yes well listen to our podcast and antipathy and listener. That means Australia and New Zealand hundred. Eric Momberg it's May may be our new Diego Maradona's current manager Melbourne City. And they won three two against their lead. Don't under says they're SORTA local arrivals western united on Friday night and he gave a beginning to an interview. Seven seconds of incomprehensible mumbling here. It Vince on our or I mean it's not as we don't know what the question was pretty sure there isn't a question in the English language that requires that kind of an answer but the question Jin is important because like part of what makes the Maradonna dropped so iconic is that he was asked such a seemingly simple question like that. No answer should ever come across that way to such an easy question. I if this manager was asked to describe the theory of relativity and that was was his response I would say okay. Well that's tough question. How likely is it? It's going to be a sports question. What you think of that game? Eric dominated the first-half first. Half Eric slipped away. The second are you happy with the performance. I mean these do not require such rambling incomprehensible nonsense fair point so that will now have to go into who our into our library. Oh It's in there definitely actually. I'm going to start using it using it whenever there's a question I don't like asked of me like Whoa. If I'm out with my girlfriend she goes. Are you staring at the waitress. I'M GONNA go full Eric if there's a time where somebody asked me. Did you finish all that that PII on your own. I'm going to go eric. Nice that won't come across a suspicious in any way at all off. Aw Okay here. We go festive period. Three winters three losers. I'M GONNA go I if If you will allow it I will. Of course the floor is is your senator. So I went. I went with kind of an odd one to start out here because on the surface. This is not necessarily one that you would make. I went with De'andre Yanlin. Jj and yes. It's my American. Sensibilities are exploding from my body. As I say this but I don't talk about your body here. Here's the deal. My Body has actually expanded the one I think. The festive period can guarantee is a serious weight gain in the Gun Ling House. I'd Bet Bet with your body Andrew. It's only a specific part. Go figure are woman but she has got mass note from from your chest up on a normal looking human being but my thighs is our massive my gut and I don't even really drink that much anymore but my gut just like there's no ceiling to its growth growth. I don't know I need to make some changes but anyway no de'andre. Jj here's the deal. It's weird because the game that I'm referring to. I'm not really looking looking at the period. As a whole but something that happened during the festive period Newcastle lost three nil to Leicester Yet Lynn only came on as a sub in that game in the forty fifth. Minute these are not really really the usual ingredients that someone You would think would like to take home the an honor like this being my number. One festive period winner. Here's why including in the first half of this game. Did you see this in the first half of this game. Unbelievably Newcastle Lost Josh. Elvy Hofmann Keough and JETRO willems alter injury. So they were out of subs basically right before the second half even kicked off then already out of available substitute so young came on at the half breath. They're out of subs and then Fabian. Schaar limps off with a hamstring injury. In the fiftieth. So now that's forty minutes that Newcastle are going to be playing down a man against arguably the second best team in England And this is all without them. Even having had a man sent off then then minutes after the shore injury yet lynn seriously injures his hand Steve Bruce referred to his hand is being quote a mess and said that it was a suspected break. Now we don't know if it is is in fact a break but the fact that they thought that after the game tells you how serious it was yet learned actually left the stadium in a sling when the game was over. But knowing direness of the situation that Newcastle Castle were in yet. Lynn played on and finished the game. It has been a rough year for him. He's dealt with a bunch of injuries. He had the groin injury. He had the hip injury so he has not been able to really get going at all this season. I'm sure there are fans that are growing impatient with them. They're going frustrated with them This is how moments elements like. This is how you start to gain respect back. I don't know what it is to break your hand. I've never done it. I certainly don't know what it is to break your hand and then play a physical sport with that that injury. I imagine it is not enjoyable so props to him. He put the team above his own physical wellbeing. And now I'm actually seeing. That may even try to fight through injury again because there without without those those players in the first half that all left with hamstring injuries. There without all three of those guys so the situation is still dire for them He may try to fight through the injury again. Steve Bruce said they think he might actually be available for their FA Cup match this weekend. I don't know man. Just imagine breaking a bone in your body and not missing a single second of playing longtime. I don't care that the game is in play with your hands. It's still tough He doesn't need to prove anything to me. He doesn't need to prove anything to anybody. But if I ever hear anyone questioning questioning his toughness I'm going to refer them back to this moment. Props to De'andre Gatlin. He's not so much a winner. Moore's a medal of Valor recipient tipene. Yeah good for him. There's that American toughness that we pride ourselves on. Yeah I've I've gone for Waterford for my first winter winner. Andrew Ten points from twelve for surgeon Pearson's Harnett Battalion. Which I call them from that one I just I call him Sergeant Pearson Nigel Pearson? Because he he has our did have that kind of high-top hair that you would have seen in the nineteen sixties or nineteen seventies. US military. FEM Is he is he in fact a military man does he come from any kind of military background. I actually don't know I need to look that up but Utah. I'm going to look that up. Because for some reason I thought that he did but maybe really just his appearance and he just like tricked me. Yeah he he does look like the tough battalion commander with the heart of gold but whatever Wofford are now just the two points from safety The Revival Under Pearson really showed signs of life in that two nil defeat at Liverpool Andrea. Where you'll remember the Hornets Burn? Some some of I mean if any team was going to take points off Liverpool. This season would the chances that day that they missed in comic fashion I think to Corey Array included. It was it should have been WOFFORD. But they've been on a roll and kind of after dot that's lifted them off rock-bottom because they were rock bottom when they play Liverpool another other within two points of safety of knocked off the likes of Manchester United and more recently and more impressively wolves. Thought is some serious form. Genie Troy Deeney. Who you absolutely love? HE is beginning to kick into gear a little bit for them and certainly decor in the middle of the parks be very good but gala. The failures while instrumental kind of creative player that they're going to need if they're going to pull this off and pull themselves clear of the drop zone. Look it's it's hard for me because I'm not sure what Nigel Pearson is. He had that season in more than one season. He brought Lester all. He had that season in primarily gory kept them up then was sacked and they went onto essentially the the bones of his team went down to win the premier league. He didn't have a great time than at Derby things. Did I suppose deb your a bit of a basket case trump. Maybe that's not necessarily an indication of his managerial skills. I don't know where this is going are. How Long long-term this uptake is going to be for? What I we know what they're like in terms of sacking manager for even the the sharpest dip in form? So I I I don't know but all all I will say you want to be an ostrich to ignore that kind of farm from what I on believable the fact that you do not understand where I'm coming from the the answer to that question and I think you you you are an ostrich you'll head must be in the sand as you head in the sand. Can you You flexibile today heading some. My suspicion will be no I come Yukon a any more questions for you up at uconn. Listen you've you've you've been here often enough for you to ask that question. I think rather being very very silly silly. Oh you're being absolutely stupid. One of the two. So Yeah Andrew. That is that is Waterford under ostrich such ostrich ostrich daughter Sergeant Pearson. Thea by the way so I I have now looked it up in an interview interview. With the Daily Telegraph in Two Thousand Fourteen Pearson said that he would have joined the Royal Air Force had he not become a footballer. I don't know if that counseling. Elsevier anything I mean. I like to tell people that I would have been an astronaut. Had I not become a podcast her So whether or not you want to count that as me being an astronaut. That's that's up to you really. Well we know the story. Well yeah that kind of makes sense and certainly gives the sense of a kind of a man who would respect the military. We also heard a great story from Craig Burley on the podcast few seasons back where when he was playing a chef in the united like the Pearson and a Birdie was on the field as well for some reason he got into an argument with Dimitri Cairene the Chelsea goalkeeper and chased him down. That's right into the locker. Locker rooms in Stanford Bridge where Dmitry carrying locked himself into the locker room and they were convinced that Pearson was GonNa kick the door in which I could see him doing. Kick it in in had like really yeah ramble right Let's see my number two winner for This time of year Not creative creative in any way shape or form. This is really the obvious one of the season and that is Liverpool. And I'm going to go beyond just the last couple of weeks Because really like their air month of madness started right out of the gate because between December four th in January second they played ten games Which is unbelievable The only one that they lost was the sham of a game in the Care About Cup against Aston Villa. So I don't even really count that no so for the other nine. Here's what you're looking at nine wins an aggregate score of twenty two to three and a club World Cup trophy to boot It has now been a full Calendar Year since they lost. It's gone now. Thirty seven games so not exactly a full season but full year has passed thirty seven games. Let's do a quick quick comparison. I know this makes you so uncomfortable But quite frankly I don't care Let's do a quick comparison between this Liverpool team and Arsenal's invincibles of although three or four which we can't do that but we will So we can't. We can't watch mates here. I go so this Liverpool. Ron Is thirty. Seven unbeaten arsenals wound up up in the end being forty nine In those stretches Liverpool averaging averaging more points per game more goals per game and fewer goals conceded per game right So like I said up to this point Liverpool's stretch of unbeaten. Play has been I. I think you would have to say of a higher level than that Arsenal team was now. Let's see if Liverpool can do it as long as that Arsenal team but far you're it's it's actually been statistically more impressive fine. That's that's absolutely great arsenal. Did it within the season. They didn't like I mean Liverpool's run involves volve three or two months off in the summer. The you know what I mean. Are you somebody who who would suggest that like. Let's say there was a baseball player. who had like like a thirty game hitting streak to end the season and then he started the next season with another thirty game hitting streak? You would say that he did not actually break Joe Dimaggio's record because he didn't do do it in one season and I do like baseball a little bit. I feel like baseball. A little bit different We're talking about team rather than individual. I see your point but I would probably say I don't know actually what I'd say that but my my point is this team this Liverpool team actually end up being on a power even though last night trend Alexander Arnold was asked by the bt sports guys is he thinking about the invincible season which is Kinda ridiculous at this point but no it is. They're going to say that they're not thinking about it but like they're all human beings I genuinely believe they are thinking about winning the Premier League. And I've done that already. Yeah well okay. We'll say but I'm not sure about you know that they're thinking about all I mean we're going to be on fire with the visibles. I'm sure as maybe in a few months. Time is doc if that comes clearly over the horizon they'll start thinking about that but my point being is that yeah within the season itself Liverpool could surpass that of invincibles team. It just feels weird to me to talk almost disrespectful to talk about a Liverpool team across Karasu Year in which you've had you know across two seasons the end of one in the start of the other and you buy the summer break in the middle and you're comparing it with the invincibles. It just doesn't it doesn't work for me. I do see your point and it is absolutely incredible. Liverpool's within that stretch Liverpool did also do something that the invincibles I did not and they won a Champions League trophy right I. I would also say as well that it's the just when you think they're gonNa let up just else when you think they're gonNA take our foot off the pedal it doesn't happen. It's the relentlessness of this team. Just absolutely stunning to me. And it's being managed incredibly because there's claims when I'm looking at them you know going into that game at the King Power Stadium over Christmas. I'm thinking are they going to be tired. They surely it'll it'll be tired. And they put in. Probably the most comprehensive performance of the last few months they destroy the team that sat in second place. There really incredible. I really think that and you know how I feel about the league like a I think I even saw somebody tweet to us. That the fivethirtyeight now has it at ninety seven percents winning Like I felt that way about them for a while But I I really think the only thing that can slow them down. I don't think anything can can stop them from winning the League at this point but the only thing that could slow them down on and take them off of this pace Israeli themselves like they are starting to deal with a little bit of an injury situation Not a crisis by any. He means but like they've they do have a few players. Who was Joel Matt Tip has been in and out for Beano Dicatorship Kyrie right so it's not not a crisis but the players Andrew Andrew Hang on a second though if we had if we applied that same logic to Manchester City which we have on we call that a crisis at Man City I mean maybe neither of them are crisis consider considering their top clubs in England and should have the resources to absorb these injuries but that's a lot of injuries? Yeah no it is. But it's not like I know for being an excellent season match-ups important but come on Jayjay like there's a difference between those guys and Monay and Van Dyke and saw and Robertson and Alexander. There's a difference you you can't do that there are of course there's the difference. There's a difference in which they play. The players like Sabino are like the platform from which the team plays and supplies the ball forward to these guys. It really fine without him. That's the point. They do look fine. It's incredible that Henderson has come in and just kind of got on with it and the team hasn't missed a beat but think of the way we were talking for him for being you was injured. You gotTa give them credit. I just did so. WHO's you're not all my God are you? Okay Yeah. I'm not okay. I'm really quite ill. I'm not that's not true but whenever I get a cold I'm I'm rarely rarely sick as you know but when I get a cold oh my God right in my ear I have my headphones up so loud. And then you're like hacking up a lung at least move the mic away away from your face. If you're GONNA do that can only imagine your face if voice close to you you be sore frate of getting any sputum on you. Imagine that we're got me my number two winners Danny ings. It's it's it's really quite simple winnings Andrew. He scored fourteen times in the last sixteen games. We spoke at length at the start of the season about our concerns over so them to WHO's GONNA score goals to propel them off the table while well the fact is it's being Danny Aines and for back-to-back. ACL injuries to be one of the leading. Scorers in the Premier League right now I mean he is right up there with Jamie Vardi and guys like that. That's incredible to me and not only the confidence with which he is playing. I don't want to bring back memories. But the goal against Tottenham was so good now yeah pride prior to that Nathan Redmond had ran wound V. One against Al Viral and. I tweeted out this. This can't happen. If anything has been learned from the Norwich experience you cannot have players running at out a viral. He's at this stage in his career. Andrew where he is in the spin cycle anytime anybody runs at him but the way Redmond completely rinses them lifts the ball over the top and actually the hard part is not that ball all is bouncing and he hit with the site of his foot into the ground and into the back of the net passing IGA. It's just the goal of a player in a run a farm and a run the confidence and it's it makes you wonder what might have been all those lost seasons from Twenty fifteen when he joined Liverpool from barley and just the dreadful read full time he had with with with those W ACL's He's become the goals scorer that Ralph has has desperately needed. And you know I know. There's crucial players birks farm has been really good bednarik Stevens centre-back absolutely crucial what award process deliveries vote. What are we constantly talking about when it comes to so that their inability to finish? It's putting the ball in the net notice had some help in terms of of You know Michael. Obafemi scored that crucial goal and the the first goal against Chelsea but Michael over famous eighteen or nineteen Shan Long. He worked hard. He's he's an excellent player but he's not goalscorer. The burden that aims has taken on and taken on relish is just incredible and he's had such let you go Festive season. Yeah we can kind of combine this with the third one that I have which was Southampton as a whole because of where they were when this all started near the bottom or certainly relegation Four Games three wins a draw to those winds Chelsea and Spurs Danny Aines was also kind of a guy that I was gonna a key and on and it's it's interesting what you mentioned about that period when he went to Liverpool and it just didn't work out seeing him play like this now it almost changes history in your mind like people will look at that Liverpool signing and think that it was a mistake you know like but now now because he's doing this again like I almost look at it as being like Liverpool. Were right but or they wound up being wrong but for the right reasons like Danny ings really appears to now be as good as they thought he was but unfortunately injuries just never allowed them to see it like they were right to go after him specifically Like like at whereas before had he not been doing this for Southampton I would have said like oh Liverpool just got caught up in the moment and they made the signing and it was just like a guy who happened to be a patch of good form. No they were right to go after him and I think he's. He's kind of validating that and I wonder he's twenty seven years old. I I wonder if there might still be another move to a bigger club left in in him or if this is maybe the right place for him to just Kinda stay for a while I think if he finds are continues to run a form that he's found out so now I'm Andrew. I don't think he'd go anywhere and I do believe that's his hometown team. If I'm not mistaken he he. He started there on their youth team right so yeah I mean maybe he will want to stay there. Yeah maybe and certainly if they stay up which they're now up to twelfth believe in the table so it looks like they're headed towards that you mentioned it was such a good point point that you made on the podcast we did. Where like when you think about The club's decision to stick with Hasenhuttl following what happened after the Leicester City match to still see it through and not got not get overly concerned and caught up with one horrifying result as bad as it was I. I think that's that's the sign of the of what appears to be a good stable club like stability. We always talk about how how important it is to not just overreact. Back to a patch of bad form or to one truly terrible game like that And I think South Hampton right now are are kind of being rewarded for seeing through during that kind of dark period. I remember someone. tweeting me at the time directly in the middle of that shellacking that they took from Leicester they said surely this is hospitals last game. He can't go. This is just too remarking and I was like the rumors from people who you know in and around. The club from journalists are that the owners is really like him and they really liked the long-term vision of the planning has been rewarded so far and I think as well if if you look at any any institution or any organization that really functions well is there a term limits. Are there times when you have to move people on. Yeah but what. If you're committed to a project onto a long term project you've got to give the person time to put in place everything that they want especially someone in the role of a head coach or manager now our managers that book that threat trained. Yeah the Crystal Palace put in a you know a young frank war with the policy of moving leaving the slump forward and you could argue that. Has the club been moved forward. Even more by seventy something year. Old Roy Hodgson. Yeah I understand that but but uh Look in in in this day and age of football. It's it's good to see that patience is rewarded and maybe maybe this will continue for Southampton. Yeah what's your third and final winter. My final winner. Andrew is very proper football nine and I think he's a proper football man in the best possible way and this is Chris Wilder talking about Liverpool. Last night he had an interview with bt Spore or it's and we can listen to it now they were outstanding. But it didn't really have to go second or third career. But they did all the things that I talk to people. Talk About Academy coaches and all this nonsense about technical and tactical. Oh stuff when we played them place. We laid a glove on him and made it difficult for him so they want every. I bawl every second ball dot on every second ball ram foreword and run bike and they did that miles better than us. So when when Kademi coaches and all this nonsense comes about coaching of a little peek at Liverpool and I said played in second and third gear but still at the Humira. I desire to do that as well as world champions as European being champions and as an obviously while on the way to being primarily champions. It's easy to be magnanimous. I suppose the boys in defeat when you're being defeated by clearly one of the best teams well the best thing in England and possibly the best team in the world right now but Chris. Wider points are so valid. We've got tied up in tactics which are absolutely important you know. Nobody is disputing their import in the modern modern game and the the the ability to be flexible and all those things and to have a style of play but there are basics fundamentals without which no team can be competitive padded or push themselves forward in this league. That's winning second balls winning your tacos desire or getting up and down the field tracking back at pace you know all all the fundamentals that make good teams are there and that wilder talks about because it's so easy to talk about Alexander Arnott's passing just. It's just so on incredible to watch. It's so technically good and his interplay and the way that Liverpool AH redefining the fullback position their front three have become the template for teens. Now we've moved away from the one strike or a frontier and now we're moving into this fluid three all thing. All those things are just so valuable against it and they're the stuff that we're gonNA remember the site for the higher yards. That's what matters and Chris Waiter talking about it last night in prison. Give report for that. I thought was was really good. Yeah good stuff. Those are winners. I'll tell you what we're GONNA TAKE A. We'll take a break here. We'll come back and for every winner. There is in fact a loser. I'm curious for yours. I'm I'm sad with one of mine. Be a surprise rise to no one. Don't go anywhere we'll be right back back now on caught off side J. when you When you come back back to the United States I fly in on Sunday night so yes but when I shall return you have missed me? I can hear your voice I have actually I wanted to. I wanted to address that I got a tweet from boy t Paul. Oh Oh dr today or something dougherty. Good God way. It's spelled is on the way that it spins the traditional Irish way. Diaz D. O. C. H. A. R. T. A. G. H. I. G. Niche or Darty. Okay go dougherty. T Paul dougherty he. He said listening to go soccer pot in the car with my son quote. Didn't these guys used to be friends now every time you have it on the American dude is berating the European one at Jj devaney and at a gun. My son is worried about you guys I guess I should address that First of all if that is in fact the way people viewed the the the place that our relationship has gone to. I'm sorry I hope that had not been too hard on you. I feel that the oftentimes whatever comes out for me as berating has been drawn out of me by you but maybe that's maybe see that's just my own insecurities bubbling over. But I I don't mean for I don't WanNa be this jerk this podcast bully so I'm Gonna I'm GonNa now all try. Try to turn over another leaf and I'm going to try to be nicer not just to you but really the everyone while lamb you have taken the antagonist role in this If if you ever watch Chris Cuomo on CNN. It's he'll start out very kind just like you. The guests will say good to be with you. Chris take everything seems fine. Then they Chris will attempt to absolutely eviscerate is guest and then right at the end he'll go look. I respect you for coming on on viewpoints. After just tearing you won an often I feel like conversations about VR. You become you go Chris Cuomo on me so you're not taking any. You're not gonNA take any culpability here no I will. I'm very straightened in my views. And I I look at my fire. Opinion is philosophical. And it's kind of far in in annoys you and also the just the way I deliver a lot of the things I say genuine. I genuinely think subconsciously. I've tailored it to just annoy you. Yeah and and I come off a bit pompous and that gets to you so yeah I take responsibility in the fact you can't deal with my intellect self-improvement. Okay see right there. Everyone right thank you all heard it. Self improvement is important. We can all improve ourselves. Jj Myself All of you out there listening we can all do better so let's do better. We're in the twenties now all right. It's the roaring twenties. Let's really make the most of this time and with that are losers that we will now be right and mock I'm GonNa go I if you again. Don't mind okay. Jj went with Tottenham. I went with Tottenham. If you're looking for a trophy I will hand them the trophy for the worst first festive period Let's look at it now. Shall we In the weeks leading up to this time they had qualified for the knockout stage of the Champions League. They fought their way. Back in the top. Four contention it seemed like things were on the up and then Lo and behold they get Chelsea to start the festive period at home with a chance to go level in the race for top four and they lose then they briefly right the ship with that pretty ugly two one win over Brighton but whatever win is a win But then more disappointment to to draw against one of the least informed sides in the League at the time Norwich that really taught him. We're fortunate to get a point in going going back to the Var debate and then they cap it off with that loss to Southampton we were kind of referencing moments ago. Now all that is bad but if you are someone out there saying well it could be worse. They're still in the race for top four because of other teams around them struggling Yes that is true so you then would probably reject the idea that they're festive. The period was worst. You would just think that this is Andrew Being Spurs. The Andy wants more than I'm too close to the situation but you'd be wrong. Here's why I continue Tinu. During this time they lost son to that red card. They lost hanging dominates yet. Another injury which Josie marinas now really be going to show his frustration on. He's talking at his most most recent press conference and he's saying that an aa he's always injured. It started Sunday. Take on that kind of antagonistic tone from Marino and I don't think domino's faking any This when he plays he looks brilliant. Like he's not going to fake an injury I think he's for whatever reason he's hurt. I don't know how you explain it. These are muscle injuries and they don't heal quickly and so that sucks but then more importantly than that j j just announced. I don't know if you've been on the web at all Harry Kane that injury that he suffered furred while scoring a goal while scoring a goal that was then ruled off. For offside correctly might I add He then pulled up immediately after doing that. That that little hamstring injury will turn out to not be so little that is a torn hand string and he is done for the foreseeable future. Harry Kane So so that and shame and much much disgust was brought to the club through a racist fan. Incident involving elving at Tottenham supporter and Antonio Ruediger Happy Holidays Tottenham. It has been a joy not to mention Andrew. That merinos demeanor has suddenly gone from the hugging of ballboys to lowering his head head in over the technical culture. The assistant coach figure it was it was the goalkeeper coach. Yeah at so Amtin Berated him for some reason he got a yellow card I think he should. I think you should have been sent to the Stan wrong. Lacks into the technical area and lowering his head and such an aggressive manner. Then he called him an idiot as we're getting the usual How would I stay menu of Marino meltdown? And it's only the X.. Amount of games into the season. It's not good Andrew. It's it's to League wins to start his campaign pain as Tottenham manager and then they've won one of their last four and they've got Liverpool Man City in their next four games. Yes not good and yeah the injuries just a general. I mean the Southampton game was you wanted to tear your eyes I. It's it's like we have learned. We talked about this last week. That like they're you know. They're Kinda the same as what they were pre Marino. He has not come in and really changed them yet. They had boring games before where they looked lifeless and attack. They weren't creating any legitimate chances. And don't more of the same sorry to cross you but it's not really because Marino's command and you can say oh it's just the same as it was under a potch but there there definitely seems to be more a more direct kind of game that oftentimes is kind of incongruous. With with the way they used to play under Chino but more than that Andrew their ship and goals so if Marino doesn't do the things that you get marine you into do you know tighten up the defence. Make things better. Don't stop making go. Speak become hired to beat and also growing wins. If he's not doing that like what is he doing. What is the point on tier? Well I think that's the larger question and honesty does will hold on. I just want to I want to answer that. I because it's that's a fair thing for you to say that that you're right in saying that but what I would say in response to that is it's not fair to take this period of time that he's been their manager and say well if he's not doing the things that Marino does what's the point of having him like they've pretty much. I heard this point made on the fighting. Cock I was listening to The Tottenham podcast and it's a good point in that like if you think about from the time of renewal arrived to now. It was from like with between Champions League matches and now this time of year. They've pretty much been playing on average of at least really two matches catches per week so like the practice time that they've had is really more recovery time than it is instilling new ways of playing so like I wouldn't have thought that Marino could come in in this short of timeframe where they've played this many games and be able to just install a totally new way of playing. So you're right to say if they're not doing the Marino things and the greenaway of playing. What's the point that that's true but I just don't think that this window is a fair window to make that judgment? I think he got at least give them at least to the rest of the season to be able to say something like that. Okay all right fair enough. I I'm just GONNA go on record hair on the third of January twenty twenty. I don't see this getting getting markedly better with us. It's not just the way they played its personnel to. They've gotten old fast. Guys are going to leave at looked Erickson. They're talking about Inter Milan now for Tong and I saw today. Rumors of Napoli being interested in Him Tottenham have a major problem at full-back. Both fullback positions Their midfield is like I set has gotten. I don't want to say old. Because it's it's Harry Wings. It's Mussa Soco. These aren't old players but something just doesn't seem right. They're like I WANNA see a long stretch of gains Randhawa blaze playing. But he's hurt like they're they're mess. Their son had just missed three games so like Marino. Has these pieces. That he probably wants to be using that. He just can't Now Canes GonNa be out for God knows how long. So it's it's a mess. It's still a mess. But because it's a mess around them they may be able to linger in the top four race. But I'll say now on January third that when it's all said and done look if they finish top four that's great because this does not look like a top four side. At least not right now. Shall I do my loser. Yes please Aston Villa. Dean Smith needs a big January on and off the field Andrew and I think always edens will have to go into his pockets yet again if it are stay up. Wesley was ruled out for the season. After I don't know if you saw this frankly shocking tackle by Ben me of Burnley at Turf Moor. I mean it's two-footed it's it's almost like a scissor and he's torn. It's I don't think he even got a a yellow card. I can't remember but it was ridiculous. Dean Smith in his press conference yesterday said that his only fit striker at the club at the minute. Is Jonathan Jonathan Cadre. I mean that is not good. Rumors abound of players coming into Villa Park. One of them Danny drinkwater. Today Day was sent back to Chelsea by Burnley He hasn't really done anything. Bernie hasn't done anything in the last two seasons. So I'm I'm not sure how much he is going to bolster midfield. That obviously has the medium term injury to John Mcginn to cope with the villains also lost goalkeeper Uber. Tom Heaton at Turf Moor to an injury that ruled him out indefinitely. No they have a lot of keepers. That could possibly come in a but still he was the senior Wpro at the club on actually really bookkeeper. So that's that's a big blow. I mean that three points at turf more has comb at some cost. Dean Smith will lean heavily on Christian Christian personal formerly of Spurs on Liverpool Who was the technical director is there and of course whereas Edens to help ease the strain in on this stretch squad but their seventeenth Andrew and their one point off the drop zone and they've got all these injuries today with? I know they had a couple of good results in the Christmas. Mix but I'm putting down villa as one of the losers. Yeah it's it's worrisome. For Them I saw Sean dyche actually talked about the Ben me me tackle. Because he didn't think there was anything wrong with it and he even cited Wesley's reaction as proof of that the court from daish was he said. I think the player Wesley actually actually after it all came down said quote this is football and this is the way it goes and there were no questions of anything other and nor should there be. So Sean dyche maybe I. I guess. We'll hear here from Wesley at some point if that is in fact what he said or how he truly feels about. I mean it's it's two-footed I Hi Andrew I I you know. I'm I'm looking at stills of it here no I can't I can't find the video on there watching real-time onslaught down. I mean people are saying well he got the ball. Yeah but he goes through the player. Not only did you not get a card. There wasn't even a foul given and by the way I guess in fairness to it and please hold your comment just let this be on its own but like Vr did give it a look and ruled nothing as well. So I don't know I guess stuff like this is sometimes just in the eye of the beholder. Everyone sees these plays a little bit differently. I I I honestly think that this comes under a on the rubric. A potential read or at least it yellow. Anyway what do I I know All right My number two festive period loser I went jj with Paul Pa Really because this was kinda supposed to be the time that we were targeting for when he made his comeback he had been recovering from surgery It seemed like he was getting ready to go But then he had that illness that is now like running running just like rampaging through Manchester United as I saw today both Jesse lingard Anthony. Marcial had to leave training after fifteen minutes because they were dealing with some kind of illness So so that that illness for PA. That's the latest return. Then he was able to make a couple of I guess you'd say somewhat promising substitution appearances against wofford offer to Newcastle But he re aggravated his ankle. And now it's been announced that he's going to need another ankle operation and he's GonNa be out for probably a month I think social said three to four weeks but it seemed like soul. Shire was kind of trying to like almost down play the severity. I don't know in the end and we'll see if it winds up being more than that You know it and for Manchester United as a whole it's particularly bad because remember they're also without Scott Mattamy for for at least a couple more months who's dealing with a knee ligament situation so I mean look people sometimes pago like becomes a bit of a joke in people's minds because of what they paid for them and because the united just haven't gotten those returns for him but let's let's be honest about the situation. No mattamy united fighting for a spot in the top four. They need him like they need this guy back. He is important Maybe he's not as good as what was advertised when they got him. But he's still important and you know I'm sure soul shirts point was relying on him to be there and you just keep wondering when when is that now going to be. He says a month. I guess we'll wait and see. Yeah that that kind of slides into my number two loser which okay is in fact Ole Gunnar saw share and particularly. Because you know they. They had some results over over Christmas in particular the win at Newcastle where they just dump them after going down but they go into the game against Arsenal and for me Andrew. It was a good measuring stick a good yardstick of where it where the club calm since the start of the season or since the summer when solitaire was given the fulltime contract and you watch the game or watch the full ninety minutes. It's and yes there. There was a little bit of fatigue certainly on ask those pirates in the second half that came into it a little bit in terms terms of I suppose the Christmas shedule and also what are Tata's is is now asking our snow to do and the changes in the game. But you would if you were an alien who landed in and obviously an alien who is familiar with Association football but nevertheless an alien with a grasp of the of the game and you told the alien well one of those teams has had a manager in place for the past year era and has been working on a plan on a style of play on a way of working the ball back to front. And you know just over all general way of playing who do you think it is they would have picked mickle Arteta Andrew. It's just I just don't see the progress it. What solitaire is trying to do with this team? Apart from the implementation when I say implementation basically giving their talented young players minutes outside of that. I don't see any progress watts. Whatever and I guess that is borne out in their consistency? I mean they haven't been able to put together three wins on on the bounce in the League are anti-competition sense that purple period when social was interim manager and basically did enough to get the job full time. It's just not happening right now. And the way I feel about it is social probably end up as a pretty important footnote in the next. It generation are the next good Manchester United team because he's blooded a lot of youngsters to find out a lot about the players that they have but in terms of this current crew. He will not be the man to take the club forward. I don't care what had would work if it were released in the project. I think it's very worrying agreeing. Know that solitaire will have control over transfers when you see Like I was watching McGuire. There was an amusing caught of Maguire on the ball trying to pass the ball and progressive forward On on twitter and okay. It was funny and amusing. Music was attitude. But if you break get down eighty-five million dollar centreback playing so poorly in a game which now demands that the center has I was able to step into the midfield and pass the ball and get things going and that they're comfortable on the ball You know this is just not working. And I feel as as if it can't work with solitaire. Decision will have to be made in the summer and I don't think it's going to be going. Well I mean look. They're somewhat fortunate that they're in. They're in the spot pot than a lot of teams are in like you're saying how bad they are. Well they're they're fifth right. Now you know their head of Tottenham by a point ahead of wolves we like the people in the race for a top four spot. There's a lot. There's a lot of drek around them on our Camman. Yeah we can. We can do that. But there's no an and that's fine and you are right but then you have no conversation if you do that. You have known whatsoever. Look at what are talented. Like you're talking to Greg Aristotle Twelfth and you you know he's slowly but surely implementing something I can see the patterns of play can see for example that they definitely are pressing Harder they're working back. They're trying to win the ball quaker in that Barcelona Pep Guardiola style. You know you could see all those things. I could see nothing. This is a years worth of soul shower. And they're stasis in the league. There's certainly look at Chelsea. I mean two wins and five at a really bad period. They're still what third or fourth four. Their fourth yeah so you know yeah there is that status that is making things much better for these clubs. But let's analyze development element. Let's look at it over. A period of time and the fruition of that period of time came against Arsenal and they were just bad. My final one. My final loser here is born born myth so they beat Chelsea on December fourteenth And then Oh and then they lost Burnley. They had a draw with with Arsenal and then they lost a Brighton. Then they got absolutely smashed by West Ham now this stretch has taken them all the way down into the relegation zone. They are now eighteenth born with eighteenth in the table and really. I'm going to identify like with Southampton. We identified one promising element for them. I will identify defy one concerning particularly concerning element for Bournemouth You know like Southampton we always talk about their inability to score goals well with born with. It's typically their ability to score goals And the key man for that has always been under. Eddie how Callum Wilson. But he has just simply gone missing. This is now fourteen eighteen games for him without a goal. You have to go all the way back to September for the last time. Callum Wilson scored a goal for club or country. Now Eddie how this is not lost on anyone of course Eddie how was asked about this And he spoke about it. He said that. Regards the Wilson. He's always been an incredibly hard worker very much. A team player adds goals to that That in his team teamwork he said. I think it's been the same this season. Maybe he just needs a little bit of luck and everything will start firing again. I I mean look if that's what you're leaning on then that's that's that's just worrisome for me That they're talisman is just not he's just not effective. You've at all right now. And if they're GONNA get right. Now's the time it really has to happen now for them. Because they're upcoming fixtures or Waterford Norwich Brighton. Villa Sheffield United and Burnley So if they're GONNA get out of this funk if they're going to get out of the relegation zone and work their way back to being a mid table side It's kind of now or never because if they play those matches and they're still where they're at and then the fixture list starts to get tough again. I worry I worry for them. That ties in in a little bit into my festive winners and losers my final loser Andrew. Which people who don't like relegation scraps involving multiple teams because for the people that you see that you've identified? I've never heard of this. This is called shoehorning. Okay I mean apart from Norwich who could adrift a little bit. I mean I mean I could adrift. It's five points between them and Waterford you look at that Andrew. There is let me just have a quick look here. There's basically nine points things from wolves and seventh place to Aston Villa in seventeenth. I mean that's nothing you can see so many things we talked about the mid-table Mush. I mean I don't even know how. Oh quite how to describe this at this point in the season. There are teams like Jeffrey united-crystal pilots. Who have had you know? Grit starts to the season. Great first hives. Who could still potentially be sucked right into this? It's it look at West Ham Burnley Brighton. Newcastle Twenty Five. Twenty four points. It's and there's born with individual zone side on twenty points. This is by no means unless we see some kind of change in the way things are unless we see someone amongst that kind of as we said mid-table most really kind of pull themselves away. I guess the candidates for would be a chef. United Wolves and Tottenham obviously but like Chelsea are in fourth on thirty six points. I mean it's it's not a huge amount. It's just it's really compacted right now. And that's why worry for for teams like Aston Villa. That's why it was important that David Moyes got that win against borne born. Muth get things really moving for West time. I mean Brighton. Who I think are actually playing good football? They've got players coming into form like over the Christmas you anchor Bash had just Oh yeah just a brilliant period for him Newcastle. We thought had doing okay another. They're slipping a bit with those injuries. Injuries it's just it's really compact and right now it's You know the way they say. Well it's any to from whatever it's any to from Bethel yeah. Yeah there's one club that I talk about the Mid Table Mush Everton were certainly right in the thick of that almost trending towards relegation. I KINDA WANNA make them a little bit of an honorable mentioned for a winner Because remember what we were thinking about them after that Liverpool after the five to beat down. You know they'd bounce back. They beat Chelsea They tied Manchester yesterday united. They tied Arsenal. They beat Burnley. They beat Newcastle and now they only lost two one to Manchester City on New Year's Day so they have whatever like worry. There was from some of their more worrisome fans That they might be headed down. They've stabilized and you know that that's not going to be the case and I didn't really believe that that was ever going to be the case and we'll see how things go with Ancelotti I if they will push on and kind of make that move that they always seem to make at at some point where they get back to like. I don't know ten nine eight somewhere in that window. I think that will happen over the rest of the season. Yeah I think so too and I I obviously obviously I expect arsenal to as the proper full. bummer would kick on but yet it's going to be interested in it's GonNa be fascinating second after the season the B- Maybe only at one end. But we'll see There you go. Those are winners and losers before I have a super incredibly quick what to watch watch for an FA Cup weekend.

Jj Fa Cup Just quickly identifying some of the Some of the more interesting interesting matches at least in my opinion here Good Luck to Port Vale as they will be taking on Manchester City. That is on Saturday. Well well they've they can at least learn from Oxford who played city in the League. These are like for me if you're talking about the third round of the FA Cup. Those are the Games that I'm more interested in like wolves. Wolves also play Manchester United which is probably the best game of the of this round of the FA Cup But like the city Port Vale like those are the matches that make honestly that make this tournament fund like people say all the Fa Cup it's out it's outlived its usefulness not to me 'cause like those are the fun games where you get you get those like March madness one verse Sixteen Ecksteen match ups and like you WanNa Kinda one day. History is going to happen every year. Crazy stuff does happen in this tournament. So you kind of like WanNa be watching when it when it goes was down next And then on Sunday. Jj Darby County is an action against Crystal Palace. And why might that be interesting. Because Wayne Rooney mid is debut and played quite well the other night in a two one win over bands less. That's right that's exactly right. Wayne Rooney wearing the white and black of Darby County. Yeah one of our listeners. tweeted us today and he thought that when Rooney was going to be player manager. Imager as if this was nineteen eighty S. I think no but didn't wasn't that a thing though talked about about at some point. No I mean Philippe Cuckoo was much more experienced manager. The manager there. But what's happening with Rooney is he's getting adding like coaching experience. Alongside trying to have Darby to get promoted are well beaten for promotion places. So I'm reading here. This was from the BBC where so whoever the listener was that sent that. I don't want them to made to be made to feel like they were full for saying it. Because it says here before moving Rooney will finish his second season at DC united and I'm LS joining Darby on an eighteen month contract as a player coach January twenty twenty but not the player coach orch but isn't got all his badges. Yes so there it is your subtle bullying to listener was well within his rights to ask the question. No he was but he's not going to be like the guy making the decisions on the sideline although considering coup was done so far maybe he should be Mo- maybe maybe that will happen. I mean he's still don't like in the grand scheme of things he's been around for forever so like it doesn't feel like a young player but he's not of. He's not of retirement age. This is the better sleep before. This is a better tweet. Barney Ronin was responding to his to Rooney's debut for Darby and he wrote Wayne Rooney is now six months and the losing playoff final away from becoming Manchester United Manager. What works now? Yeah I suppose that's true. Oh and he'll join the likes. It is weird. Though that like this era where lamp hard and Gerard. And if you see Rooney on the sideline like God. Doesn't it make if you just we're getting old like that. We're just getting old and sore there. It's the passage of time Andrew. You can't fight it as your belly. Is Proving Sunrise Sunset Sunset Sunrise sunset way. This was fun my friend Yes. I'm very pleased. Finally that the next time we do a podcast. We'll do it in person.

Gab and Juls: Can Dortmund Dethrone Bayern?

"It is a bank holiday here in the United Kingdom. The SAFT. I'll but there's no rest for no we're back to serve sports fans everywhere it's garbage or show. Let's get this on the road. We're GonNa Talk Yarn August George off the baby s. She s team really really excited about. We gotTA start with on around Europe because football is ingenious way back. We've had confirmation over the weekend jewels from from Lalita table saying again that what we confirming Davis talk constantly obvious. He says we're GONNA have games every single day. They got the approval. I think it's going to be the eleven said. They're going to look into June officially be the next big league back in Portugal. Coming back before but you know among the Big Five obviously. They are second out of the gate. You're excited your height your aunt Jan. Yeah then to buffet. You could as we've said many times tobias not perfect and in many respects tokes law and took very often doesn't always make sense but I think that he dealt with these pandemic very and the way everything controlled for Lita they. They're allowed to play again after during the government gave them the green lights the first game. We'll be joined eleven as you said and probably be. Sivy adobe his web so great way to start again to assume the season with with Patrick Leah and and then as you said it's a game every day that's the plan Some kick aflaid so early depending on where you are in the world as well but I think we can organic expect behind closed doors. Obviously so it would need to doubt. I think it'd be like we saw in the league up with the got sick weekend and already intensity was there spectacle was there it was. Let's injuries And everything seems to be working. Well there was no so I think we can expect the same from from legal. Hopefully now Syria we will know on. May Twenty eighth. That's kind of the the big day. We'll get confirmation one way one way or the other but the sports minister Coming out seeking over the weekend he's effectively sounded very very bullish. Was the guy putting the brakes on all this and now he's okay with it That certainly looks looks very promising The medical protocol at is out in. It's been it's been agreed upon on just the final rubber stamp so everybody's hopeful they're going back to contact training as well. Prayer League is own by wondering think you're shooting in Syria shooting for June June thirteenth or June twentieth. Start date which leads the Premier League which I think in some ways incredibly although maybe it's not so incredible because obviously they were. They were hit as hard as Italy and Spain and they were hit later. Maybe we can allow them a little bit more time. I think at this stage. It's going to be while officially trying for June twelve. She's not going to happen. Jim For concentrates full-contact training. We're looking at June nineteen or or or June twenty six meetings on Wednesday and Thursday to try to push forward negate another round of testing and there were two positive tests. Out of nearly thousand is time. They extended the pool out to Fifty club out the players. This is also on staff and whatnot. There is a positive test or miss one thing. I don't understand Jill's the Guy Aboard. Mr Tested positive is a player so obviously this is a guy who was tested. The first time around our in the first round test Must've tested negative back. Then should we just believe that? Maybe he got infected in the meantime we shouldn't worry about the two detached right. No I don't think the quality of the test is in question here but you're right is strange to tested negative on Sunday Monday and then positive on Thursday and Friday the following week which when was the last two batch of tests was was last week Thursday and Friday. So yet. Maybe a surprising but he's going to send vacillation on his own. The rest of the team squad when we will keep practicing by small groups as the room now and crabs. I allowed them. Plays I allowed is another case that what I which is a bit concerning for weather because few issues that between price. You don't want to try and go by training the ones who are positive. Even if there's some magic like Mayakoba saved out in a few cases the again I think everything is under control. Then it'd be interesting to see the next at now what's happening this week in terms of the protocol. Once again we we buy there but everybody will have who to agree to it. Training with with contractors where it would be the next phase at some point so it seems again. Everything is untried. I agree with you. I think June twenty-fifth foxworthy but nineteen more twenty-six. He's probably the right date. So but why like is? I don't mind that Exa- staggered with that. A couple of weekends or they would have three weekends and he's great and everybody focused on them and everybody was there and you'd have legal back and you'd have to to win this again and together and we can wash and the other and etcetera again hopefully won't tash too much then. Sarah would come in a couple of weeks later. Maybe and then maybe the premier league and then the end of June beginning of we'll have old four big leagues together. But I think like the fact is one after the other. All of this time One of the visited problem all along with the primarily. Is that because I know. Richard Masters gave an interview to the BBC on the conference call before really wasn't very forthcoming. You get all these. Things leaking out from clubs. One of the things was a story in the Times that they're gonNA ask every club to have a code nineteen training coordinator because when they do to go do the full training they would like to have yes. You can have full training but please minimize contact than they actually cited clubs that press along a lot of intensity elect Liverpool that maybe they could change their training. Sessions to make them less intense misdemeanor. Sounds like one of the most idiotic things I've heard in a long long time because you know if you're GONNA ask Liverpool okay ripple we want you back but don't play Liverpool against Greenland Liverpool Rondo training. Yeah I don't I don't get this. It's either full-contact training or it's not Training right yeah exactly it's like the TACO Jimbo. Couple of weeks ago. They were some people that looked like. Or maybe you can train again. But no TACOS. I mean aside that you train and you train normally if you allow to try normally because it's too early then don't don't try to or you keep doing your little rondos groups and practice in finishing waiver. Don't don't don't come in like yeah okay train. You have a few rules so you can't do this and you can't do that you can do. I mean I think the family unintrusive. Their messaging hasn't been great route. But these leaks are coming from primarily clubs are in the meetings and the reason these leaks get so much. Oxygen is that primarily. WoN'T SPEAK SO THEM UP. And you say hey look. These guys are saying they've told Liverpool needs to be less intense in the way they play again. You obviously to slow down is true that well. We have no comment on that. We comfort a call methods. You know. I'm I'm sorry you're not helping yourself because people are living in this stupid. You know going back to out Wanting which I think is stupid on their part is they're talking about Kickoff crimes at half past four which okay ilise not play Spain although positively do get very hot if we're GONNA play July at half past four s going to be absolutely absolutely brutal an empty stadiums. I don't need to see that so if you're listening to please fix it. I don't even WanNa sky. Was the idea behind four thirty. Then what what can you later? Like five or six and eight. I guess now they want for thirty so that they can have four thirty six. Thirty eight thirty something. Yeah Okay Picking Games in for for TV separately by. I'd almost prefer especially the south of Italy. Yeah play at nine thirty in the evening if you have to gain extra hour like be smart about this and also the former thirty games you know. A temperature gauges This is something that they have for the had for a long time and the north of Italy is very very cold winter and in the past seemingly. They never took into account so they would. You know they might schedule. Games in the north of Italy at night in winter when of Rosen and foggy and and do the reverse in the south of those is something that I think they need to. They need to work on Jo Jumping back to signal statements for one second. This thing which is interesting. Is that because they have to play a law allot engaged. There's kind of the plane city and because they're still concerns that you know if if there is an outbreak in isolation usually play. Offs is back as a plan. B basically. What they're saying is okay. If for whatever reason we can't continue or we won't be able to finish all these fixtures we find yourself playing into August. What can we do until you're studying different formulas of made me having just a couple games to go decide big issues based on what the table looks like if they have to stop down. Are Y'all going that yeah. I'm okay with ICE JOE idea. I know you really have to back. It makes a lot of sense especially if you compare the ninety two games in England one hundred seventy nine games you need to whatever games you I've led and decided now decided ahead of time before you go back then. Yeah Yeah Yeah you can't do half one and then finishing the other but you know what listening to us about all of this and having Saudi to stop playing what feels like two months ago almost which was far too early in a rush decision it makes me saw. It makes me sad. No because because league is the most spectacular amazingly enough for that. Because I think there's a lot of funds the players some of them wants to go again and I know a Yona pushing hard to try to view the decision not to play anymore. I don't think you would go anywhere buys. You're saying you said it could thicken to be more time way to be more. And then maybe they would have been able to play a few games. And not just think we're GONNA get to that in quick hits Mr. Oh Las Invite forgotten you of course could have. You're talking about restarting on responding second. Which would be the surreal situation where you could have? Leon in the Champions League. Final anonymous twenty-ninth While at the same time it will started next year which I kind of love Final point the whole hurdle with a neutral grounds again touched upon this on Thursday. Police saying you have to play neutral grounds Clubs saying we'RE NOT GONNA vote in favor make notre grounds now. They're talking about a mixed hybrid model. Where some danger going to be neutral ground if if they fear that there's going to be fans congregating outside but I've talked about to face. I think it's completely arctic. But at least that's better than having everything new grams right. I mean yeah yes better base not as good does having games in normal grounds even close doors look at Germany. There's no problem with crowds gathering outside. Let's wait for the League to go by Portugal. Maybe as well before see what they do I guarantee you. There will be no gathering outside. Why don't you trust? Why don't you but why don't trust you know English football fans if you please don't go no know the history of Li- English cons historic sign a different time. It is in fines on UNITED CITY. And wherever every club? I said as if this is the only way to get through a restart I would actually rather see something where they leave it up to local police to go and make that decision local police who local fans naked face. Come out which I really have this power but if they come out and say you know what? It's not safe to play this game in Brighton. For example at the x. This game has to be moved because we fear fans are GonNA end unsighting Biden purpose because the Amex of course is not in the countryside admits nowhere and bite and then we'll go and we'll go and play. This elsewhere lead up to the local authorities but to have this national edicts is just Just foolish in my opinion okay. We got the bad stuff out of the way. Let's talk about the good stuff and who better than Yawn August? Welcome you're on no tomorrow? Night is the big clash between Gershon treatment and I am unique which I'm reliably informed. No Real German fan actually calls their classic something stupid that was invented by the Evil Marketing. People the about lawn. This could decide the title Biron of course going out and scoring big but also conceding big this weekend any concern there or is it just the magic of hinder? I was first of all entered. Trump was former player. I was very concerned everything that game. Because that again after the Gladbach game look terrible will look like a defense from from nightmare at the moment but having said that. I mean the recent this game tomorrow is great is that everything happened that we hope to this weekend because it could be a matter of choose tonight by Munich. Being ten points ahead of on dot went to vote spoke a tricky game because also you being good glasses doing well in involves spokane but it was a good game. Did what it had to do. On-deck beating front foot. That was not a big surprise. I mean the whole for. Does that hinder when he can scored so many goals on these the most scoring defender in top five leagues? All up all around. So I I guess. There is a hope for joke when tomorrow. Is it a title decider? Well if buying wins is elva but It's adult managed not lose a still based in there now. I was hopeful here because I saw up. I your Dortmund have a tall German charismatic defender. Who's very good in the end? Very good on on set pieces and if a Byron defenders corners the way they get those they conceded twice. I think in the space about five minutes turning US three Neil scoreline for three two scoreline. I'm not mad and starts with the letter h kindergarten. Of course it's match almost but then the guy goes off injured an Emmy Sean comes on out. Big of low Absence be for for Dortmund or is it. Okay because Amazon's there. I've said for many years that Hummus is not overestimate the because he's a world-class Defender. But he's not the best defender. He is a player. Who'S LOVES TO GO FORWARD? I love his trip. You've got a good head. Thereof is a competitor of the ball passes but I think one of the reasons I hope that he will play. Almost is also that you can chime in midfield because I think that would be very decisive because Kim Mitch looks good for by on on that balance kind of player in there is very important. I think John is better needed in midfield on. I think it was good. News for them at John came through that the Shenzhou game got so minutes scoring goals scoring points as always do on so China's the key at the lake is now from This that the humans is ninety percents for the game so I think that is good news overall for John. Where do you think this game could be one for women? If don't want to to win game we saw again and Hakimi being greg form of Osberg at the weekend like they were in the previous weekend you think could be there if we can create some v one against Davis and with with the full box or the wing bikes and their wingers. Maybe that's where crews could explode binds. Witnesses maybe what you think. They could win the game. It's a good point on but it's also a mental state of adult moment. Because I think that over the years we have so many times thinking of well this is the one for Dortmund candidate taken on the game and then we are disappointed. I think Joel took the same analyze assistance winter. I'm in with with Allen. Poll on Sean. They go to players in have that mental strength. Nece that may be one. The go onto like did Leeann Serena when I lost four nil in the game of the season but I think that the main thing is that oh constant Abiam going there because buying will do that pressure that will be a offensive line would stand high up there. And then we have the wingbacks coming up for Dole sensation at the moment. holiday applying and there will be a lot of space for for ailing hall on behind the ban. Defense on I think well. We appraised buying a lot hints that was dead bolts. But I think that could be vulnerable. Because they're so good going forward so I think that the that the fact that the buying a very confident that could also play into the hands of jolt wounds and and don't stats at the moment sensation. Hold their play so I just hope that they can get this out in a game against the establishment of Byron and big data yellow and black challenge. That had hope they will be being Italian. I like to play the percentages. When there's something and early in the second-half there three now up against Against Frankfurt Home live on Nov. Ski Is Card. Away from his suspension. And I'm looking at the Bang like did he flick fall asleep. Why doesn't he take off? Then they could see those goals like all right now shoelace. You need to leave him on. Tv didn't pick up the suspension But I just thought that. Strike you as odd while you were watching a game or is this just the way flick and by August there so constant like is suspension. Whatever if we have to play JOSH'S ARE Z. Or some other Weirdo. No problem doesn't matter. Legislative dossier on your. Let's keep storing goals. I think you can compare them a bit within Saddam. When they were winning for fun people said it will winning for fun because Saddam didn't do anything you just let his players play. I want that lost the reason they lost because sedan. Just let him play play on. I think it's the same afflict out to moments. I worked the weekend with all the Games we would always thanking folded all these stats comparing Hans. Fleetwood PEP Guardiola on all the rate is buying coaches as being a in terms of scoring goals winning games and so on I think at the moment by an I must say look very very strong and we are talking about the winged Acts of of jolt. I mean phones. A I mean that is sensation is what a story it is. I'm and people dot. I mean that is so good for football on Levin. Does he'll being eleven does smart enough the no chance that he would get a yellow card he would just be on their get. His goal and keep on Kerryon goes to Dole that he would do stuff a gay and I think that is the strategy of Hans Flick and violence moment even Franz Beckenbauer Stadium. Now so now. They're all coming back On only heard as was their room and again well is by of the good old days in the build up to that goal was that brilliant dumbing from Erling Haaland where he pretended like he was gonNA describe initially missed it or intentionally Mr. I'm joking here but obviously I think rightly US stuck out for Erling Haaland last week when there was that that caught up of his interviews after the game where people put together all these situations where he can get one word answers brief answers and stuff. So we're having a go at him. I'm just wondering if if something had gone wrong. Dortmund had won that game. That miss where you know that that Eric is this. The kind of thing and we're maybe would have become Lynn in internet museum or or or something would we have found ourselves in that situation. Where all of a sudden because immediately after bill people up tear them down my dad have been sort of the first kind of rough on Pea. Patch of of his career has experienced anything like that yet and knowing him a little bit. I how do you think do you think you would? Rock is necessary for it for a player. Go through well first of all. I think that was not the best of games that Allie has done for. I think especially the first topic was missing losing a bit too much or too often the bowl a better second off. I think that missy did thank God. Was there to score that goal but still wouldn't have scored because most defender looked at very well that has to be beside as well but I think that older reports from com shows that alcohol has had sensational testses very well training trained very odd through the corner of time and then you will get game side. This and I think we should remember. The boy is nineteen. He would have more games that he will play Worst normal I mean. We can't expect the normality for him to score goals but still. I think that's shows how are at the moment. I mean with the players. They have out now apparently which is on his way back with still a very very important for them. Chan slowly back son. Josey Brown look like a million dollar of fire while no one million dollar used to say that not just. Yea Bro. There and I think I I saw the common from sort and I agree with him. I mean that was not a spectacular day adulthood but still they went two goals or Like I said in the beginning had been better. Good unable looked very good but it was no only one winner at that game. Yes they had a couple of small chances had to to save them but it was a very very good win. We all agree we expect some SORTA starts the game tomorrow night right or do you think there may be something. And that's why he hasn't started the last two games. The father is not happy with any prefer Brandon Huffman. We we all agree that central which starts tomorrow absolutely. I think that that was also perfect week. And four I will accept homers going out with an Achilles says small injury he went out. I think that was a perfect week in two perfect games for adults because essential. Maybe it was back in his training fitness for different reasons than they wanted to blame a bit at the beginning Which I did about ten minutes in the Post Game. Not gave him like twenty six minutes or something on the slowly getting into the game and you saw Sancho again. When he came that it could have played ailing jet. Just wait to wait. Underway is not like I don't. He's like unbelievable the the young boy because he's he's got his chiming sole right. I mean we are all so thrilled about this basketball Cyrano with Jordan. The last dance and I love to make my method that but sometimes you just feel essential just letting the ball not even pass it and just let the ball roll their at in finding people say I mean Miller had assist this weekend. They had to go at scab that that was something else. I was across some but this time to is so clever in what he's doing. I think that what you see on the big big strength as that. They have so many alternatives when they go forward is not. They have play on the first run. Respect run as a furred random and then sensuous Deke and yes. I don't think Thaba would dare to leave sanctuary for this big game. I Have Sam when it comes to Sancho obviously technically. He's very good but what strikes me most about him is that combination of athleticism that he has and intelligence That's really really rare because often you see in young players are phenomenal athletes. They will rely on the athleticism. And maybe the intelligence comes later. Maybe scrap here people who are more limited who have to try to be clever. He has that intelligence athleticism together. He's also obviously very gifted technically although maybe not. Maybe that's not as great as attribute but a yeah. I I completely agree with you there. When he came on the timing of that Ron the other time that when he basically wrote graded those as a fullback he was pretty sweet to watch also sweetser watch for those of us. Dr Drinking the Nagas men kool-aid like the other stupid people who pointed out to drop after their their their ridiculous draw at home they go out on a punishments. Five now could have been five at halftime Never got right yawn and you WANNA celebrate team verner. A little bit is easy to celebrate. Team Obama I saw some people made a points out of his Co. seeks obvious goals-against minds okay. That is as lucky lucky opponent but still team. Abana is unbelievable and he's great goal. Gets we know that. Sometimes you missing it some chances as well but it's also the amount of fancy into it's unbelievable. I think we'll manage to do year. He came team about Anna. Being being a great strike of his is managed to improve. His GAME IS OVER ROLE GAME. And you see sometimes goes deeper. He can get the bull out families very hard and from defender dependents whole. Should you stop him? You know if you stay one against one beach on on on speed and ask you so by The last With the POWs just play in just playing on the shoulders of defendants is very very hard to mock him on. Always twenty four goals. I'm also a lot of assistant. He's on fire and I mean we talking chiming and something I think you made. A good point is show as well save Vana sometimes when we talk about tactics skills you always talk about. Teams of tactically are their whole tactically. He's the coach but I think the most important thing is all tactics and football player Strengthened is berry underestimate because there are some players when you are two nil outpouring wound up and you keep doing your tricky stuff. I mean then then you have to be tactically wise to keep the ball yet a freak. It gets the team to master you. Unearth Andrews improving enough on. I think there's a very good use. The NAGAS. Mon- came that I think is also a wise decision. Does he has made. It's as if I go. I go with abroad if I stay. I will stay in our beliefs if stating German. I think wise from him he got a great Hsina on and I think that I realized she is a very underestimated. Look at midfield with savage with will aina within come at a great great game so it's fun to watch. I saw the Think it was Sunday on meet. Such backward was buying Meccan. Turner was limited fired. He kind of made a point about almost like putting him down a little bit setting well. But you know if you play for buyer and other teams sixty and stuffing can't exploit the space behind that he does with his feet and obviously speed as you said is a huge attribute but those first two goals he scored. That was down to increase really really good movement by a strike. That was out of the the Gary Lineker Junkier Pan Movement. And yes really dating myself here but I was thinking about what you said about all the great players like I've got a friend who talks about how deep they are only turn this around a little bit because apart from foreigner McConnell and Saba tsar play really really while. These guys look devastating. But is there really that much individual talent in other words? How many of these guys if they were on other teams apart from those three are phenomenal are actually show good that they would perform to the same level and how much of it is on improving them and having a system that that makes really really good? I what think is right for you to praise nine Nagas. I think is is a good way to improve play players. I mean I mean definition. Finish of a great coach and I think I've said that before. I think that club in that department is very underestimated because how eastbound improving players is sensational. But I go back to the philosophy of Taken the place where young speedy players on this Alabama's Was True. He said that on Bailey. They always compare it with. They have one strike fee having said that to be fair to buy them on split came in and said I won't ban. That's that's kind of player. I would like were hot here. Of course I mean I think job German champion shoulders for the best German talent but well they they got a great balancing. The team midfielder is major got to. I mean German national team players at the back. I mean and you can't underestimate among you. You just see how far they come. is a great lad. He's working so hard and I think he's a strike is play alongside him. He's not is not a goal. Get there but he would make van best. Whoever replaced with not gave him to capitalize the capital. Bitsy Saab. Is that uncomfortable? I mean the goal cancelled did with a one hundred thousand. Well sensation was made to the best goal of the weekend. Having said minds didn't look like that bother they were more or less applauding at all the NAGAS Mon- We know that that is the great prospect. I sat in the weekend that the best managers in the world. They are under the premise. I mean if you see two names and coaches is unbelievable At the moment it what is interesting to fall in the German. Football is that you know that roles and Nagas Manal the night you know they would end up in a big big clubs day because these are football brains out the football brains of a new generation. Why like about then? I like when he plays behind courts and I think he's better when he plays like that and when he plays a bit higher and conclude behind him for example and I. You're so right when he plays a second striker or even nine and a half you can make those runs going more freedom to make the run because Putin is that we the two cents a box usually mocking him and that kind of thing so I liked ideal thing I liked about the game. Is that every single outfit player. Critically your chance in like as inappropriate gold chance in the game so even even cluster man created the chance for option to school at some point. And I think when you've got all your players able to create chances for your team to score you love a love with things. Maybe the biggest game this weekend John was was bagging Leverkusen. It was a big fight. It would be a big five Champions League places and everything. What did you make again? Well I think made as something ads. I think we are all Hobbits because when you see older much wants to play around Europe they are quick are small and then we have this guy who when he was full on fifth and they didn't know even make it into the junior teams because he was growing all over the place but I think the first goal is brilliant. Because it comes one against one of the Gulf. But there's only one place you can put that through with summer any just put this that. I mean he's so relax. Stunt gave Kochta's Welby captains Easter to give him that said on given that responsibility but I think Leverkusen is. Is it a team? That is sometimes underestimated. Because you have these four company clubs in in Germany with listenable Our livesey. I'm hoping I'm you have to say as well. I'm maybe that image of the boring baths club Biologicals I mean this team that I have now. I think it's really it's watch on. They are. I am happy for Pizza. Butch did he didn't have a a good stay in time in Germany but levels no looked like like a great deal and winning then I in Bremen and then winning now and get seven to over two games. It's very impressive and anti Harvard's against we are talking. Where will go where will not go? I think is the most like a man who will leave by because think we all know that his father's on I've just excited to where we go. He is a is a new. I mean can you compare with? Is it a Meka Bala? Kind of Guy Goering. Those of finding complain different positions. It's amazing. Yeah I have to say. I'm Peter boss keep even by the way they're playing you got Harvard's upfront. And and you've got. I think what what it would affect means that you're defending with one. I have one defender. Who is so much better than everybody else in touch so like everybody else looks are cumulative suspected he does weird things but but the way the way they're going way he's he's really released in getting out of hearts. I think you have to give to give reluctantly jewels. Have to give Peter out. Crime do we think is best positioned as as a force number nine because he's not plays as the number nine but he's no number nine. We know that but do you think John is garbage. Where do you think that released best position? Sometimes him and I think I would love him to play. Be Deeper to of two hundred fifty ahead of him and then he would. He would run the game and he cruised school as a second striker could give us each could make more differently. Sometimes he has to drop so deep as to get the ball. I think he's a bit of a shame. Yeah I think it's I think it's a fair point but I think is also a young kid. He's born in one thousand nine he is. He will improve the has always done in his career. He will improve. Maybe we don't know what position until Let me in play to moment. We say they play four four two three five two teams but I play all over the place now old. They knew where people play but I went to a game with one of my four clubs in Germany. I only have one and one of the leaders there said before the game they played Leverkusen then. Harvard's played in midfield. And he said I will. Navy was but he said to me we have good control of Chiapas because it's something that he doesn't like you don't like us to go early into take him a bit. Odd Midfield on the did A to game on Hav None bad not to be seen and I think that the Bush has found out the best position now as a twenty year old without self confidence. He's belt is just to give three role he can do. Whatever you want you can drop down a bit on when you have that kind of balancing the Leverkusen theme I think sometimes dot is very underestimated. I think the key thinks great teams at a balance in terms of mental strength into physical strength different skill of the players. I think that tie hobbits. That's the moment now as a twenty year old in this Leverkusen team give them a free role on now. He's building saw a building his conference so pat that Bush was asked about that he said. Yeah I did okay better now than it did against Bremen okay. Go Keep Tom. Barium Weirdo that guy. John we're GonNa let you go. I One last question. You obviously love Harvard's who you love more high Harvard's or the original by got Alexander. Meyer course I have to go direct answer. Thank you so much. John was great. But you know what's even better jewels? Queer Kid yes. Let's go week. Messy said that if they keep playing like Barcelona has been playing the can't win the championship so then that obviously prompts sits Yankees manager to respond. And now he says he disagrees and he thinks he can win. The Championship is actually a story or a giant media creation because the media in Barcelona got bored stories about Neymar out on. So let's move onto this one. No I think it is just I mean I like it. I think if I was kicking agenda would not be comfortable or happy that Messi saying publicly we just haven't been good enough the U2 Cova and yet we saw a bit of improvement at times but overall I'm not sure you know and and if why okay if they'll must see Fokin you don't agree now. They've been playing badly he saying when we played badly. We can't win the Champions League. We need to play like it city and salt. Why are you know Missy? Said who is for is. If it's not such an is your manager. He sets up. The team is ideally philosophy. He's only you haven't been there that long. It's the players are out on the pitch. Who are the ones weighing injury all coming together? Yeah but on what macy could have done a bit differently than just the way he did no Alexa Chen Alex Messy. I Love Sicheng I like. I like the strong philosophy that you highs by Mexicans and say you know what? We're not playing good enough short. This has to be a criticism of the manager. Sure I didn't read our I really that way. I think this is. This is media stirring the pot again right okay. We we see we see when they come back. Monster United talks with Shanghai Shenhua overextending or igloos learned. Pass June the thirtieth stored got. You warned us these my no just ridiculous with the players out of contract or when the loan finishes I go back to this and yes we live up to a we had Daniel G on the show. Remember yacking to us about this. The the June thirtieth cliff edge when a loans expire when players contract people like stunningly. You can't extend the freaking loans. Unilaterally is not majesty united player United Steward Stain. Their deal with Shanghai Shenhua Zanjan Abbas later this way on. It's not if they have nothing on wouldn't be a problem another. I think the first of all much love. I don't think he's central to united plans. If RASHFORD is fit equally I think You know it works both ways. Because if you're united you can be like no you don't walk straight. Why don't you come back instead of flying shift united so that you know we get a little bit an edge in the race of Champions League so this is something that needs to be shorted on. I think there's going to be I don't I'm not GonNa Blame Club for doing. What's in their best interest Given the situation and in some cases them I mean not renewing the loan. So so yeah. Let's let's see others. Turns out now jewels you. Our resident expert Incaviglia said yes in identifying it and studying it you got a lot of experience with was Kyle Walker Moist gain jealous about that barbecue via when it's funny how You could have fend with friends and putting on social media and then he comes back to. I want you because you know loud Mr Vineeta. The yeoman new laws got you in Bunny House Bankas wife. And then deleting them quickly when she is actually they were not allowed to do and even less it. You don't mention Italian guy of course then Vasquez Vasquez yes. Was you wonder what the young family are? The young and his wife doing all the Argentine slash. Italians show what kind of language they were speaking. Anyway you going invited and like I was wondering about just inviting loop the because just to make him feel good. Because is it good when you really want to be with? The kids are really really wonder this Alka. You know. Come over the barbecue but yeah sorry look. We're not saying you're not winning from like if you were to have a raging night out you would probably should. Well you obviously choose every Beningo Gopher Lucas compost. Because remember I think he was an ex? Jonah Ronaldo yet you even a mood. Alaska snows the new. You would go for him probably last choice but you know good for you for you because it is to both Alexander Ceferino says you are. I consider a luxury tax as part of financial fair play Gab. Can you spend just a bit more wife's about what you think of it? Large basically means is. It's you have a salary cap. You have a spending limit on on wages that applies. You can go beyond that limit on like a salary cap but if you go beyond that limit for every dollar more that you spend a dollar some that age some sort of central pop then gets redistributed now. I don't mind luxury taxes. I think they serve a purpose because they bring costs down. I think I would mind it. If I was a player. You'd have to be really careful about limits orbits the only thing I would caution against these. If you Google the words Chephren in luxury tax. You'll see you'll find an article from twenty nine gene where he says yes. We're considering a luxury. Docs and article from twenty seventeen. Where he says yes. We're considering luxury tax New Look hard enough. You'll find my article. When I sat down with him was in Kiev where he says yes with considering a luxury axel yet would sit on this long time. I mean it's a lot of consideration. Only be two neighbors. Jean-michel alas says the French must be idiots for ending. The season. Soon swears children's heads. It'd be saying the exact same thing. If they've been second in the League jewels you believe him and Are you one of those idiots. He's talking about. I believe him. I think he was joystick to not to stop the season but to do it so early now give us a bit more time to review the situation and the contact and then make a decision later on wait maybe for the Bundesliga to grow box. What the other leagues were doing. And then and then decide now we look also like India's because everybody else we play almost everybody else buffer Benjamin and Holland. Ns and then. And then I don't think that's what I don't think that's good economically for Clare. Don't think is good for the image of French for boat either and I think or last is trying to push on to review that decision. I don't think you will go anywhere but you issue have with us is initially. He came out by saying. Let's have a playoff. Let's do playoff. We can have playoffs to win the league. We can overplay to downplay off for your places receive your Easton. That was out of your places will be the playoffs to try to win the League. And instead if he had spent all these energy and resources fighting to start this again whatever way but studying instead of with silly idea of a playoff which at that time. It's not like your idea. But he's convinced stupid. Maybe things would have been different instead. He went the wrong way. And it's really really got cross work within for presenting the idea and I think you said it should have should have fought to resume the season whatever way and maybe we would not be in this situation right now much nineties net debt increased by one hundred twenty seven point four million pounds over the past year. Gab But they paid dividend of eleven million pounds with the Apron. Five million going to the Glazer family. Are they getting for many of the warring bit? I mean this is an angel thing trees you any fans really really hate glazer's they have taken in excess of one hundred million pounds out of their team. They voted it as a team. Up with the Glazer's will be saying yes. But look we've also been used profitable over all these years and then you go back and say Yeah. You generally socked him in laughing stock and punch below your weight since around these goes round and round. The reality is if you allow people who have a certain investment profile to go and buy your club then you have to allow them and folder stock exchange. They're allowed to to go in and initiatives. These people obviously don't care about public opinion. Now remember the happy to a about how united donated a million pounds to any just workers but I eat a half million miles out independent. They've added some expertise. But you know again for me. This is just everything about the glazer. Takeover was wrong. You shouldn't be allowed to take a combination now. They're the opportunity to get them out has obviously gone away. The ones that felt strongest about it now before s United Manchester the others I have grown silent and you know the authorities missed the boat on that one now Joe. Hart says that all he wants to do is to be quote a big part of club jewels. Sad pretty incredible because he's only thirty three years old And He's played as much primarily football as you have since twenty eighteen hundred fall so far so fast when one. Maybe not never that really good for me. That's that's the best opinion. Don't roll your wife. Maybe was not great for England team of the season in the premier league. And all this other stuff maybe time where they were not very good good keepers English compared to like now chains Rob Green. What did you say exactly and then and then maybe made the wrong decisions as well at times? I think going to Torino. Maybe it was not the greatest of of ideas going to burn. It was not much better either verbally to jump in you going to club. The is Tom Heaton. Who I think is one of the top. Two English goalkeepers. When he's fit and nick pulp go you know would cap for England and you think this is a great place to relaunch career. You know when you got some muppet show keepers or other clubs yet. You never understood. You won't why barely went to get him Eiser. You know what I yeah I know best in you know. And and now he's thirty three. You're right for still quite young. I don't know who who would go and sign him wherever he's wages are short as you know. He's not cheap if he's ready to wages. Yeah shortly but then you when you read the interview that I gave this weekend still face like he believes he can play in a big club. Play begins and stuff like that are going to what big club who plays in Europe for example is ready to give your heart and other go. I don't think so there are reports. That said I Inter Milan a very close to signing an instant. Caveney with our candy going the other way. I'm actually writing this afternoon about it on the websites as well. Does this mean download. Martinez would also leave inter too good to to boss out have three one or happening. Yeah just this is your honorary perishable. Yes yes the first of all I think it would be a terrible signing for for you're talking is appeal. You want to make money. I'm GonNa sit on the bench because this is the thing you're not gonNA play army. Dotto Cavani Lukaku together. Just not gonNA happen right now. I think the reality. I don't think this is much ado without Tina's because you're waiting to last year with the strikers. Mother was Alexis Sanchez. He's on owned. They're not going to keep you needed a third striker if you can get Cavani on a cheap and you like him and cold tonight. Whatever Soviet but you're GONNA cost you a ton of money and wages. It's another freaking three year. Deal what we learn from all those stupid long-term high price contracts or give out these guys never go away nine and Paris h other. I mean I I simply don't get your heart on him. Whatever you know lot a good two years even if he's no you're starting them benign. It can give you a good two years. He's GonNa come on starter wages. This is what I think. This is actually most likely this is Covina's people putting out there. Maybe they had preliminary talks and hoping for others to come out of the woodwork. And maybe make another offer. I don't see why would wanna go to injure to be. Somebody's backup anyway. I mean I think he's made a career right. Sure it's GonNa Start Right not big club. Yeah I think he knows that. I think Bavaria Hard for Hema thirty three to start in a top top grab I think critical Madrid for me. Still if they really want him. That's the best choice for him. We talked about Seville earlier. Right civile center forward too young. Do you think that maybe I didn't Mike Fats? Chances at starting ahead of Luigi. Young your weather in Seville yet you think Monte. She would give him two hundred hundred a year. I don't think so that's the thing. Yeah well. Yeah so shows I pry own meaning gun. Show me the. We'LL SEE. We see what he ends up now. MUCH-HYPED US international rightback's or Gino. Death has been linked to many clubs including Barcelona and by Munich. But he should bar callers most recent social media posts. There's this matter Jules. Yeah maybe does maybe we city to him? I think he's too clever to have done that with nothing in the back of as minds because as we know trying to offer meadow and looking for right back the thing and I'm sorry senior to break your heart. I don't think boss afford. You certainly cannot afford you a name on our way to make a choice something you might be in the choices. And I don't think so. I think they do that without a Martinez. And then that would be pretty much as they can. They can swap you with. I actually be interested. Let me think racketeered Shaw those dudes. I would love to see that starbucks. And I think he's a very talented kid and let's hope they make the right choice if he has the opportunity. How about how best for a true year loan of on Sue Factory Hallman Great? They're up some kind of the online. Yeah right sad news gob with former into bar. Jujitsu being another victim of the coronavirus passed away The weekend how you remember him when he was in turn through his whole career in science will book. I mean he's the guy about around a lot of was always a gentleman didn't injure I think you'll forever be identified for the fact that he was during those those years in the late nineties when the team were spending like there was. It was a note tomorrow. Pre Hector. Cuper does with years of poison as as they're known that intense rivalry with us And of course you'll be known as the guy who was was was voted manager of the year by his colleagues in Syria and then fired by injure almost immediately after Which it says. A lot about how injure were run during the dot? The era really been run for most of the past fifty years from. I mean he was the manager when as you said when they won the ninety eight UEFA Cup and I was I was there I was at the the prince denied when Renaldo was phenomenal against lots of the three hundred win. And it's one of the best individual performance I've seen live in my in my in my career and my life karez joyous and life as as a kid because I was seventeen at the time but he and nothing as a team has when they were good. That I'm indebted incredible team really but that game much challenge cup really is the only significant show. I and it's not entirely their fault. Because anybody who knows the story of those years Mark Your Yano running into to Ronaldo whatever you know it's He's a guy who got a raw deal. I think club and from football in general. Now you're right matches. You don't reportedly taking legal action against football manager Jos. I don't really fully get the story. Can you explain it to we? Yes so weird. Weird one Because of the timing maybe and as well you wonder really. What do you need to do that? I fully basically. What does it say in the Bible gained from the Bible? Easier for camel to pass through the eye of the needle. Then enter the Kingdom of Heaven. I know I know. I'm going to be very busy for manager and football manager lawyers to respond basically united. Not Happy for manager is using not the official Christ because for that you need to pay me money to be able to use that name and a crash the logo. What in Wu Commission But in happy as whether you're using a logo the has the same color red and white. Maybe he's too close to the real want to close to united things again. They don't think that you should do that that you allowed to do that either. And that's why they're doing football manager. Who as we heard a few weeks ago with Dr Markham of friends is? He's even more popular now in coronavirus time and his in this This lockdown and maybe. That's why united thinking. This is an opportunity for us there but I don't really understand it. Why would you go after July? That why don't they hire a bunch of nerds to go and program their own game or it's just Manchester United Reliever to bunch of made up names and then it's rate so they always wait. That's that's Great Jersey. Glaziers an idea for free with a number of that they have around the world Who'd be willing to on down money for this? It would be awesome right and they make it clean it to have a competing product that has jibbidy being hurt by full managers use of a of their likeness and then the Weird Club logo or whatever. I don't know I we should just go back. Just call it red united or something right go back and get an early days and you know and then go change change. The names could have ozone Golo when Hernandez is being the thing. Because you were not allowed to do anything know clearly again. This is an issue. Well finally GOB Jordan. I says he has no regrets over of a house. Career afforded since joining boomer from never put into sixteen for fifteen million pounds at the time boom of presumably to have regrets. Cedeno renewing his contract which expires in just over a month. Gap JUST STARTED THIRTY. Four League Games over four years in this bay just over fifty minutes from any he also had his head cut down last weekend like our friends sexual year breaking the long roofs as well. I mean after south. Why you without questioning that? I mean why. Why hybrid just nods you this morning thinking you know what? I need to talk about the other night. We haven't yet because I'm struck by somebody comes on and he says no regrets a modicum of introspection. Come out come out and blame anyhow. Come out if you walk come out and blame yourself because you know this is four hundred religion well then then Eddie to ballot June thirtieth. This is one dude by the way. Do Dirty Cliff Fletcher not. He's not going to get his contract. We shouldn't get his contract renewed kick disguised as possible and then hopefully you can go and restart is crucial. Nice twenty four years old. Who is not like your buddy jolt heart that we talked about earlier. Is this guy with reliable One look really really good Clearly something went wrong. I just hope something good comes out of it. Maybe more missed and look at the way they recruit. Maybe another way they treated him. Maybe they maybe inclusion on something better. I just find that extraordinary the fact that the student go on loan as well you know when he obviously wasn't getting playing time that doesn't reflect well on him. Curious somebody will take a gamble on them. Yeah this is a lot of money down the drain for For born for the first time our jaws that brings quick hit sue conclusion by. It's your favorite part the job it's time for the S team not an St. As the yet as God thank you again for your tweets and messages about the team. We had lows two that we we said before.

"Welcome to this special edition of two rubies podcast transfer deadline day special. We're joined by n._b._c. Mates rebecca lowe allah whites katina catina grandma's so andy and ashton as we put a bow on this. Someone's primarily transfer window enjoy london. If you just joined us today these premier li transfer transfer deadline day headlines taught them <hes> acquired giovanni celso from real betis on loan with an option to buy up confirmed in the last fifteen minutes everton. That's a never fully agree to deal with. Also the alex award we let's not forget we still have an hour and a half off for the deal treats to go in to confirm the so some of these transfers will be. He confirmed in the next ninety minutes. This already gone probably lukaku to enter for ninety million. No longer a manchester united player maluku and arsenal how care and tanis we need twenty-two-year-old from celtic left-back thirty million dollars and how about on an hour and a free agent divorce off the left united of the cormac injury problems has for ten to his boyhood club of mucus united on a free transfer for one year contract that take you shall we typical to tottenham and manchester united from colleagues at sky sports tsk videocon liverpool's melwood training ground where we weren't really expecting too much action and it's been made clear throughout this transfer window by yagan in club the liverpool were unlikely to do business. They can't keep spending at the levels that they have in the past. It was interesting however spoke to your club elliott today when i asked him about about philip casino and live being offered the chance to take him back and it was a flat no comment from the liverpool manager so no big surprises today yoga club very happy with the options that he has he has got more options than last season of course alex oxalate chamberlain back to full fitness another option in midfield cater of course as well. We'll be better for his first experience of english football and an injury interrupted season last time around as well so without any income today the focus is very much being on preparations nations for the season opener against norwich of course liverpool and norwich kicking primarily season off ahead of everyone else on pulled gilmore at the tottenham training ground that has been a busy he day for maurizio porsche tino donya leaving the club chairman <hes> they are going to get to players giovanni lo celso on ryan sesame sesame joins joins us from fulham in a twenty five million pounds deal with josh on among the young tottenham player going the other way to fill them with the celso. The bettas player joins things are initially on a loan with no obligation to buy for fifty five million pounds with five million pounds adorns taking the total of the deal to sixty million pounds taught them fans will be happy that they're finally making signings again on deadline day four signings in total when you include tong gay dome belly on jack clark was loaned back to leeds aides in terms of outgoing still an ongoing situation with donny rose. Will he leave before the deadline <hes> old ties into cecil and coming in donnie rose. You would think all the way out so tottenham. That's the situation with them. They didn't manage to deal for paulo. De la the argentina international from your vendors thought would have been a real in an exciting for the fans that hasn't happened but they have been active in this window. Welcome to old trafford. I'm james cooper where manchester united i think think of how to transfer window to remember want to savor. They spent a bit. They brought a fair bit in but i think the sting in the tail is being that maybe the quality that the fans wanted and also maybe the management expected here hasn't turned up on the final day of the transfer deadline. Certainly all are gonna sell shower with a lighter creative. Midfielder hit liked to right wing. That didn't happen. What really has done of course is improved what he's got his spent one hundred and forty million pounds doing so brought in harry maguire for a world transfer record for a defender. He's got to exciting teenagers in daniel james and the arrow wamba soccer and key on the end of the transfer deadline. He's managed to get rid of rama. Lula kaku that relationship had broken down the caucus called a lot of goals rose new time at manchester united but he's now an intimate land player but manchester united hold onto what they've got a move on with what they've got i think for fans and matt for management to like a slight frustration at the end of this transfer window that they haven't got the added quality would that would have made them even stronger than they are going into the new season so we are coming to you live today. Hey from studio one at sky sports here sky compass in west london. It's arguably the busiest day of the year for colleagues near on probiotics and grabner so went the famous set joining us now live a grandson and robbie earle who are covering deadline day for n._b._c. S in america so welcome along then what would be working in covering the primarily for the american market for the last six years so she's seven isn't happening. Ah it's growing and growing in america and obviously it's such a such a massive die in the calendar as we will never ever here and it's just sort of introducing the idea of if trump's photos and deadline to the american market so it's a fast moving i mean there was a certain is false moving from other news spring. Bring you in just a moment but let's talk faster. They're on kyle said the most exciting signing off. This window was nicholas. Pep pay for eighty eight million dollars. Come into all snow. They've also brought in williamson. Saliba kieran teeny happened today last couple of hours braille montanelli and denison byles from real madrid on-loan. They've got rid of some places well when you earn ramsey we all known loan about laura sean lee who's gonna board of. That's all snell's window. <hes> so far we're still waiting for confirmation of course from david louise whether or not his move from chelsea has happened so that'd be spending that being strengthening have also football club hill does that mean therefore that this sort of strategy and the structure behind the scenes has improved structure that word is exactly right rebecca they brought in eh. Do this formidable character as a football disrespected revered person. He's now the tank on technical director course eddie was in the center of that midfield wrought the most successful period really awesome vegas rain spent three is there between between two thousand one and two thousand four. He's come back to the top and he's got responsibilities not only for the scouts and the club but who so the recruitment of players bringing the players in the negotiations <music> and getting those deals across the line of course brazilian david louise brazilian. There's already a connection there. It's very very simple for you to get this deal done nothing to ask them. What eventually eventually announced that avid louise is an awesome player but don't underestimate eggs in ponce. Though of course they lost one technical director at the end of last season royal sat royal certainly of course who is still that club eh do back to also this air of respectability. I think that's what we needed off the field. They just needed to change these things a little bit just to give emory in second seasons also manager just a little bit more stability and also a little bit more guidance. I think that is exactly what ed who has done in in his new role is also ten coordinator a narrow the southern looking forward to successful season great stuff back with you on united in just a moment and also in a moment our low graham. I'm and robbie will talk also but a couple of things to bring you our n._b._c. Sports dot com writer colleague joe prints rights says his source tells them that southampton are one of the clubs so oh submitted a deal sheet to the primarily by twelve noon eastern cutoff and it is a centre back but they are trying to bring to saint mary's and also i can tell you are chronic skysports skysports. Just up says a report in the mode beverage another one of the deal sheets from everton to sheffield united so we're slowly piecing together the deal sheets conundrum okay okay. Let's say you to the newsroom back to allah that would leave only to deal. She be confirmed. City have a belgian midfielder that hasn't been confirmed yet as well so i just keep with us and we'll give information as soon as we get it on. Ask grandma's dont with defensively. Neil ashton was talking about stability at the football club one about stability at the doc louis we think might be one of those deal sheets and currency and is well. What do you make of that. Business will care and shania thing is he's in the mold of andrew robertson and if given now andrew robertson's flagging last season. It probably put any price up by some amount. I was really concerned about an worried about arsenal's defence in terms of last year. They can see fifty goals. I was worried about them because i hadn't signed anyone now slightly more worried because they've signed on so you get these two sides to david luiz. There's the exceptional talent that he has. There's the great leadership qualities that he has as well. He's thirty two experiences incredible. He's just they need if they get that side of him and if they get the other side room which is the inconsistent sometimes you know he likes to take risks and he could have a negative impact packs on that back line. I'm banking on him having a really positive influence on on that team and given the responsibility by emery who knows him well from g. I think that that will be a really positive move for are still not confirmed. You saw him training on the side of the little. Did you know that is move was in the in the works yours. We also caught up with the arsenal squad. Didn't there in the united states and california. What did you learn who spent the day with me today. What some training and so game did a few interviews and it's really interesting new. The new talk about asu spent thirty minutes with our do what an impressive guy says talked about his network. She knows the brazilian market knows a european market would that and maybe four talk about having to three deals in the pipeline time he was saying that i'm hopeful of getting over the line and it was right at the time when awesome we're gonna say we're gonna spend about forty million. They blow out the water. Nicolas pappas comment and exciting left's already play with lots of place and i think this morning and went all in good shape going forward but defensively they look a little bit imbalance johnny and louise dos to change dow look a little bit now pat pay then you just mentioned there describe his other attributes that he brings to awesome well. He's he's so quick in san on his left foot as well so i mean there's a link-up lyle think he gives them options as well in terms of the shape of the team you think of obama yang him and legacy as a as a front three. I mean they got plenty of. He's going to be a four to three one and you're get out pet day one side of the other maybe is alone. Does that get try in fossil could be in business cause for optimism for the guna nation state side you brought to you. Thank you very much indeed. We'll update you on louise if that happens but let's turn our attention shelley to manchester united on the only gonna social losses what we saw season it was when he came in off christmas off the marino. Just first seventeen matches lost just one game the last twelve matches in the season. He lost eight as you can see the stats. That's dropped off a cliff on a social at manchester united last season so water seeping doing this summer. Well three classes come in iron guan. Seven million daughters wall rebel fee for a defender eighteen months ago. Virtual van dyke was world record one hundred million dollars but the exchange rate has changed. This is though now a world record fee. I want the saka up sixty three million and daniel james rafted winger from swansea for nineteen million and today's you can see on the right of your screen that woman to caucus gone to enter for nine hundred million dollars. They recruit into lots of the money they spent on harry maguire an aaron won. The saka saw harry maguire ninety seven million dollars national premier league inside. He's been with us all morning first choice record. I think not just not said we'll probably contest. This now spent his world record field harry maguire to bring him in from leicester. Bond saw kuta bali the napoli central defender that was always their first choice. That's the part that they wanted to bring into manchester united long-term target old trafford under under river under a variety of different managers but i just couldn't get it across the line which is why they had turned their attentions to harry maguire to them forever to get it done. Nothing there little roll manchester nights at the moment about the the spurs the amount of money. There seems to be spending on signings. He's nine hundred and fifty million pounds sterling since relics folks and left mentioned that's emotionally spent on that includes the feed though spend on harry maguire manchester nazi say that's undisclosed leicester city very happy to say that's eighty five million pounds. They held pulled out for that. Some they believe maguire is one of the best central defenders in the primarily an established england international centre-half one of our south guys mainstays bedrock of that defense offense for the national team. He's going to become imagine is it but i just don't think rebecca that he was the first choice but he will. We first choice in the center of that matches janata defense when they open put up the week of the weekend in the first game against chelsea and date harry maguire will be in the red of manchester united on sunday. I'll get roy. Masters thoughts on only gonna saw shines a second. It's been widely reported though arsenal fans on this david lewis situation that he was also one of the deal sheets one of those six sheets that was handed to the premier league by twelve noon eastern. I am until seven pm u._k. Time four p._m. To the answer my line maths every year just doesn't get better till two pm u._s. Time to get all the paperwork and done it should happen. Devotees should be an arsenal player by the end of the so. Are they gonna social robots. We saw that graphic from last season how dropped off so significantly and you've seen what he's brought in and what he's let go. I know you're not oh happy. You think they should have done more. So how do you say the season unfolding for him difficult. I really do think they're going to get into the top four now. We know that he he wants to go with younger players. He wants to have more energy about his team and and nothing that's a way to go and i think it finds enough to say younger players high energy and there's no question you could have a front thrill full. That's very very quick with russia's marsha mason green with a seventeen year old. That's quick and burning in preseason dana james from seventy cities while so that looks really really good. I worry about teams go into old trafford that sit behind the ball and kind of low complex situation whereas the creativity to get in behind now if marshall and russia it can have career seasons ago was that sometimes when you look at them play their talents teams that they can get but we haven't seen it yet and big numbers then great if papa as as is the attitude is right and you can drive on midfield if social console. It's a situation where polka can affect things going forward and you have a little bit other insurance defensively in might work cal. I mean defensive negative defensively much better much higher mcguire. Mamba soccer has been excellent in preseason. I just think when you united newsy spurs and national finding really good plays midfield plus. The offense have to be frustrated. Quick tuffy for you. Which is the real only social first half of his reign second all right so you have no faith in the first part can be it can be you can maintain that through a longer period of time and we're seeing it but listen harsh was yeah they do but i'm worth ravi must have got another colleague. I got a little more optimistic fans. I mean they're they're typically not happy with me but i'll actually defend a little bit of it right now. I think if you deconstruct that graphic that's completely stark contrast. The first part was the enjoyment in the freedom that he gave to the team trump but it was an easier schedule and they start facing tougher games. They started to get bad results in but also hit a wall. I mean there was muscle injuries. The team was not fit enough and so he spent spent a lotta time in preseason getting the fitness levels up so with a young team with a lot of pace. I mean lynn when you think of daniel james in radford marquel listen you don't see see a consistent goalscoring number nine in that but you see every player can play a different position pau going to benefit from mcguire. Bring the ball out of the back and not coming to deep and they conceded twice as many goals as manchester city liverpool so they're better defensively. I think there'll be a little bit better. Okay chops thank you now. It's not a proper transfer deadline day. Show until the player releases a statement an on social media donnie drink waters decided on instagram to tell everybody that he has gone on loan to burnley from chelsea and i'm being told that ryan says in your has signed for tottenham from nineteen years of asian ever brilliant season for full of last year compared wingback complex fullback complain a little bit further up the field. L. does well but ryan sesame oil and we think it's a five year deal as well has made history move from west london at craven cottage to north london and he has joined spurs. They have splash splash lost. We continue what they've been to every top off to. The break spilled on last year's remarkable campaign and from the money spent editor are also going pulling for it. That's coming up next. He's a trauma to get your cellphone t._v. We want you to send in photos this weekend all weekend long. You racked up yup annual primarily scarves babies and pets especially encouraged as i say every season it's been three months. We need them back in our alive and back in our show us ac my feel morning and send us in your pixel weekend long. We're moving on to one surprises. If you'll be surprised of law caesar wolverhampton it's and wondrous. What are they being doing. This summer window ins announced will route jimenez. <hes> has been confirmed from loan to a permanent earlier on this forty three million dollars. He's actually school old today. Wolves are currently playing. It's half time in the third qualifying round in europe league against punic around the winning by two goals mill and menez jimenez half schooled petra petrova has come in for up to twenty five million dollars. They've spent some money as well as you can. See on the left hand side of your screen and on the right they sent a lot of players out on loan and defend the courtney horses left to go to vinegar winter. I think i'm right in saying for four million dollars. I mentioned last season. They were surprised package finishing in seventh position with fifty seven point the most based points by a promoted club in thirty eight match premier league season so for more on nunez spirited santo anna's wolverhampton wanderers players to the newsroom anonima the chance well so far so good rebecca for wolves armenia in the first leg of this thune qualifying for directly if they get through this is another to lega before they then get to the group stage so for it seem robbie that lies continuity relatively small squad last year with with consistency and selection a little bit worried about the europa league commitment. I am this time last year. Although we've spoken to nuno and he said we're gonna play say the buck going to get on the ball. I'm going to apply doc yeah okay. Let's do ten he did if any saddened built in identity play great football my to kind of concerns all the no surprise surprise package animal. Everybody will know what they're going to do so people will work against that the second and he's not you wrote to league. We've seen it with teams like i know that better team and play the football and burnley bought a challenge when you've got thursday night football and then demanded the primarily and you've gotta get me both so that's going to be interesting to see how wolves deal with but i don't think they'll be in any kind of still on the table but you might have an effect on the nuno sat down with its before the season as rob mentioned and i think he impressed his all with this is poises confidence. We did their opening game in the two two draw with everton fantastic atmosphere mullen you do you think he's instilled an identity to work uh-huh absolutely has and i think he's his characterised charisma of his way he treats the players. There's no hierarchy. There's a real group mentality but he's still got the authority and they've set out a blueprint nerve. When they got promoted ballplayers. I was concerned about the middle of midfield with nevarez and martina that's that's going to be to lie in apprently but with the backstory it's worked brilliantly. He was so impressive last year. I think one of the big things they've done around the continuities they've managed to keep some of those quality players thought neva's might get picked off by one of the big boys. You've got dorothy. The right back had a fantastic season and to keep those place together then invest in a couple of other places well to bring the team on i think they're still position from where they can continue to grow and develop so depending on the road police commitments they could be rebecca one of the teams that push towards that top six season on a thank you very much another team. We're gonna try pistols at top six. Everton may are spending money on the left of your screen moist cain up to thirty three million dollars nineteen year old really exciting play. We'll talk about him. In just a moment. It's coming from event for other places including andre gomez which was made permanent from barcelona and i can tell you that one of the other deal sheets. I think it might be the last one that we were trying to find out who it is is alex he has the is probably gonna move from arsenal to everton his deal. She has gone into the premier league so they have just over an hour now to get all that paperwork done an everton will be spending about forty five to fifty million dollars on alex roby. They are spending club near ashton last summer and this summer they all spending big and they sense that vulnerability of some that seems in the top four no of course liverpool manchester city there well ahead of the game and i think tom will be as well but it's not fourth wolf place in the primarily. Who's it going to go down to is it. Astle is imaginative or can ever sneak into which is why they're back marco silver and i think you have to look at the results of the end of last season season when suddenly it all started coming together and that's why that back silver particularly that thumping win against manchester not as good as in paul that gave him believe for the team. It's on its way that zinni ascendancy it's improving on the mark over his and the methods of impressed when he was the walford manager just a short period of time before he moved to everton his reputation nation is enhanced on merseyside which is why he's been able to bring all those plays in. There'll be a frustration of course because they wanted to spend big. They wanted that real signature signing the statement signing with wilfred saw in so many plans to some of the marco silver blaze dade gotta charles a short a realistic chance of getting into the top four and breaking that stranglehold rebecca okay okay now thank you well. Let's assess robbie shall we because we've seen evidence spend money before and it hasn't always worked schoenfeld given me for thirty million dollars moore's claim thirty three if it will become maybe around forty five million dollars. You're good good. I mean i think when you when i saw just gonna leave the football for p._s. Jian automotive lukman. I really liked leave him like wow to plaza. I really like they're leaving. But of course they've been dell from manchester. City will play midfield think gabon me and you talked about thirty million dollars for minds but moi's kane is an excellent by nineteen years of age thirty three million or something dollars that he's coming for all the soldier becker. I'm surprised you've enters. Let him go but this changes there with a manager and lots of attacking players there. That's a good deal whatever happens with him. They're not going to lose money so if all the players is some of the younger ones come into the primitive moist. Kane is a player i will be looking at very closely is his dream to play in the premier league's while i'm always keen on some interviews this week alex what we have just been told he's undergoing a medical right now in london and he will sign a five year contract to join everton from austin which should be completed without a problem by the seven o'clock deadline so we'll be we'll go to everton that amount of if money we think around forty five million dollars alex thoughts look better i i still i still don't understand what they didn't see and look and every time he was given an opportunity opportunity and it was rare under silva had made up his mind pretty quickly and previous managers just seem to to give him the last fifteen minutes of games to come on and try what impact it will be without the pressure of oss no expectations of couple of whether the jump down to laboratory could because it was flashes the really good at times we'll call. It hasn't worked for him. I think with all. I just think he's got a chance rebecca just a little bit expectations he might do. There's talent product and with keen unproven goalscorer as talented as he is. I mean that's a lot of question marks on a number of deals to be confirmed so make sure you stay with us coming not pin next on on transfer deadline day. Show we're going to focus on three clubs. The will hominoid on a top half finish at least leicester west time arena spotlight an hour leftover show. If you're just joining us the softer nude headline number one i am for the biggest one-room lukaku left manchester united and he is now an intimate lan plan ninety million dollars fee for the belgian striker in terms of taught them to new plaza in giovanni most also on loan from real betis with an option to buy an exciting silky player and ryan session you on just nineteen years as of age a six year deal on her side with spurs but thirty six and a half million dollars this one is not getting done but we think the dovid louise from chelsea to all snow will get done in the next hour. He is one of the deal sheets which means chelsea and also lead to get that paperwork sorted out before <hes> fifty eight minutes. Nisa is having a medical in london right now ahead of a big move for also to everton around forty five to fifty million million dollars alex willoughby another one of those deals. She should get confirmation in the next hour before to a fucking seminole. Paperwork has to be all day that we've been bringing you. Transfer spur deadline day show from the home of sky sports. This campus is the center of all things premier league here in the united kingdom so we have bought you a lot of the headline so far and as i say we still have some time left before all that paperwork has to be in with the premier league league on some of the deal sheets going the likes of alexander robey and avid louise. Let's take you upstairs to the newsroom where it's all this is where the news hits you first us. We'll take you there in just a moment but before we go there the transfer deadline day news other than the headlines. I gave you done drink. Water has joined burnley on loan from chelsea drink wolters born on instagram to tell us that doc wolford's a hall put in a transfer request yesterday staying at crystal thomas some other news for you also have brought in cure antennae after definite from celtic fullback for thirty million dollars will be adding davidge louise to the acquisition of care antennae southampton have submitted a deal she we are being told for centreback so hopefully some use for saints fans in the next fifty eight minutes an hour and moi essentially signed a new contract with hottest bill but they've sent him to brighton on loan for the season aaron moi from huddersfield hilton brighton as i was saying that newsroom up says here at sky sports news is really where it all happens as soon as any news breaks it comes in right to that and all the white is there for russell gives a little tour becker's still buzzing down here. It's been a thrilling transfer deadline day before i take you on a little wander through the office. Here have a look at these screens on the wall behind. Hi may comcast family. We've got skype germany. We've got sky italy but got n._b._c. e._s._p._n. And we've got of course sky sports news who are host today would be very very well looked after there was a lovely moment when jim white announced that the window had closed an outbreak of applause a standing ovation from everybody here people have been here since the early hours of this morning working hard concentrating bringing all the latest news and i think the two words on the everybody's let's right now are dale sheets as we try wii and wait and confirm as to when these late deal sheets are confirmed. This is the set and you can see here. Stephen moore not giving us a wave over here if we points so our left hand side steve is heavy. Nolan's vicky gomersall is jim is over in the corner there. Jim white's their ears beautiful dongo. They're lovely yellow tie hours per usual. They've been bring the action to people in the u._k. And around the world on sky sports news rebecca thrilling day. We've really enjoyed it. We've got got a little while to go yet but you get a sense here that this is the nerve center. This is mission control of deadline day. I think everyone's did a fabulous job today. In fact here's nick doing across a live cross to sky germany as we speak so the whole family coming together. It's wonderful to call all these resources to enhance our coverage going forward. It's been a thrilling day here. They've looked after his beautifully and we've still got a while to go. Rebecca say back to you. Thank you very much indeed so we're going to focus on less sitting our team that many tipping debris into the top six season your retirement to real stop when he came on loan last year from one cosby confirmed spends on a permanent deal for fifty million dollars also spent big on peres the striker from you calcium nitrate and james johnson's coming from newton town for up to ten million of course they recouped more more than enough deny with the selling of harry maguire to manchester united to ninety seven million dollars singer donnie simpson so it's very much a youthful phil undefined damore just really started on the copa l. but rojas carry on if you just look at the ages of these players to the right of names and you'll see like the poppy bombs at twenty-one benchellali feel like he's been around a while is twenty two wilfred indeedy. What a play he is also just twenty two so call martinez we look at these lists of names and we see the money they've spent a couple of big name players as well 'specially getting t- lemons in a permanent deal. Do you think they are the most likely team to break into the top six. I do yeah i think that it's exciting and you have to think of transfer and brennan rogers in getting him to come to the club and what he's proved to do in the past normally in the premier league with young players there's but when given time with a project and i kind of liken lester two teams and lofty example of a of a european team right now like i asked i mean is this i extend. It's thrilling everyone one right now. People don't realize that when you have an average age of twenty two you didn't just by a bunch of teenagers these are players that have come through and have had time to understand the system be around the first team get their opportunities and slowly. They've been transitioning away from this lester won the premier league title and like okazaki's the last of that group that was that was providing a job that peres might be the one to fill now yeah i mean i use a peres as low twenty the the graphic though those twenty three year old players but i think him with jimmy body thielemans who's a great guy. Isn't it as a great. Get this football club james madison indeed. There's well or chowdhury. Maybe the whole those four bucks. I'd like to get forward and a full pre season for brennan. Rojas is so key for him because we know that he's guy the training ground. I'm guy he's got. He's got the energy the excitement new signings. I don't quite think they're going to be there. No just a little outside okay west ham united some people are saying the dot force's going into this season in terms of who they've bought and with mammal pedigree of course in the manager's chair sebastian holler from frankfurt franklin for fifty six million dollars public for now thirty one million on him from burrell a midfielder today fulton albie nyathi from basel for ten minutes coupla ah the players as well as turn around in some who've gone out we know mauka announced bitch has left the club for twenty million dollars eventually call. He left the club. What do you think think west ham united doll causes for top top say i must always like in west. Ham i in a second. He'll make his argument. I just don't feel as confident if it and i think pellegrini did an excellent job last year allard comes in as a promising talent but an unknown quantity and that's the position that they continue mute to get wrong which is why i had to play striker for a lot of the last couple of seasons and produced really well and so i just i see club that that's not afraid to spend money and they've been spending money almost every every single window but it's all going to hinge on did they finally get someone up top that can get them consistent goal like like many teams rebecca the strikers so important and new ones come into the premier league might be might be the guy lots of big name players and let the football club but i do like west. I'm united and you said about lesser. Could they the top six. I think west west chance to i do yes fully plan. Listen marlins zini four dollars a pair they brought in. I mean there's a little bit of attacking flair there. I really liked him respect. Mama pellegrini is a manager as a coach which i think the team will improve through him. Energy creativity skill his coaching abilities again like other teams will talk about. It's going to be about the strike if he does hit hit it off with the creativity behind they could save him even less to finish in the top. Six four says about west time in i._t. What about the last season to season they had of course they were finishing in eleventh to the f._a. Cup final ins and outs looking like this today. They import is my heels saw for thirty six and hoffman dollars which is that were their club record fee craig dawson taliban from from manchester city and danny well can interesting acquisition on a free from also. Maybe that's simplisafe governors. They always do of course <hes> every saumarez well last season of really good season for them. In the premier they finish in the bottom haw bob fifty points new club-record. The best previous was forty. Five fourteen wins new cup record fifty two goals new club-record finished which was the best because their previous best was thirteen thirteen many thought they finished in the top ten. They silently drifted towards the end. It's been relatively quiet summer for water but in a way it's it's a good thing offered offered fan yeah well. It got some players and we spend money today but you always don't want the attention you wanna fly under the radar something yeah i think it just smacks of being content and been in satisfied. <hes> we know that the <hes> the club owners and the krugman there is very very good and they got access to information about bringing new players in any way but that was interesting twenty-eight rebecca and i know is that his injuries but as a free transfer from arsenal. I thought it was a smart typical offer that just pick out you know of some bad. Supplies are available well. I was going to do a job for them. I agree that it's a good move for danielle beck. It's it's the right club to try and succeed see they can beat a fast physical side at times. They can also put the ball down in play. It was kind of funny these arsenal and i guess you'd say he's more manchester united than be wall. Companies arsenal wingers have sort of left and gone on to try to find new greener pastures as it really worked out for wolcott. We'll see if it works out for. I think all of them will back has the best chance of resurgence in his career career at wofford. Now we wish him the best as well. After an awful run of injuries danielle back now a wofford clashes thunder fifty minutes to go live show today ain't coming up next a familiar the face in the dugout that newcastle steve bruce has quite the job on his hands plus a former on the eddie how now and established premier league the club permanently pick them game is back ahead the n._b._c. sports predict apt to make your picks for free and you can win fifty thousand dollars if you correctly predict the scorelines of five featured matches in every week eat.

It's up says on the voice so trump's they've lost one bizarre but it appears kent czar but what concerns you about crystal palace shake their early season form concerns me to winds up until december last season and in the previous six seasons only once they got fifteen more than fifteen points from. I sixteen games so they're slow starters. I think with zara. You don't quite know how he's gonna react back to normal moving.

Andy carroll him in a second is gone to west ham united coming from west ham united on a free then drew williams from frankfurt on loan to the right of your screen you can see the the plaza left a crucially rosie perez who we've talked about ready to go into lesser for thirty eight million dollars so back off in the northeast. Let's say from him. Few back to the club you support this boy amazing feeling on the way off it was it was just flies is in stomach and complete really. It's been a long time coming hasn't and we're just sitting there before. We came on camera and a half years. You've packed a lot tena fuel that long. It's been a long time every transfer wyndham sick of hearing it from you but now it's finally happened. It's a great feeling you obviously infinite for that to happened to have another another. Go here. Yes i think it's a finnish business in our left on a high and i wanna come back and get back to where i was on scoring goals playing games and enjoying us really some supporters congregate notes as one wanted to speak to you as it was back then. Does it feel the same yeah like i said before. It's it's an amazing feeling and it's probably wanna put the ship on is going to be probably a field in that did the first time in art. It's something that i've wanted for a long time and now too so after a rookie som- newcastle fans will be delighted with ambi carol revenues as a cost less the club during the summer when his contract run out some quotes from him joe eleventh. I must say i've had more meetings in china what he's now a manager with the chairman the president and the general manager here this week but i had in three. He is at newcastle on the fourth just this past week. Unfortunately he says the said england leopard can't change its spots on the things kept us attached to the club meaning newcastle missile to the city and to its fans but lack of project as well as unfulfilled promises meant. We had to look forward and follow a different path. I think let there is my gosh leeann. Mike ashley david exclusive interview <hes> to the daily mail in july some incredible quotes synchronised one he talking about refugees took the totally soft option took the money and went to china china every time with rougher. It was impossible. There was always another thing and the next thing on the next new calls. The united could not have done any more to keep rapper. Benitez may election action primarily against side up despite interview. I mean mike actually ready. Talks gave this a fascinating interview to the daily mail in july despite what he said there and he's very honest saying that he he doesn't he knows he's not wanted at the club. Despite he still not forgiven he still hated by newcastle united fans. They still love chances name or chances. Steve bruce got well. Eh benetton's certainly from this often and onwards by signing andy cow foreman you call supply of course someone the georgia ghana gay end singers. I just par absolutely worship before that move a little pull them west time and of course now back in new cost but also very very short. The long term ambitions of the club was is going on with mike ashley for him. It's very binary for want of a better phrase is black is black and white roller. It puts million-pound anybody who wants to buy that football club. We've heard live from so many people of all these potential bidders who want to buy new call so you do believe they've got the funds can transform this football club to bring back the glory days as in those big runs in the primarily mike. She's a very very simple message. Put ten million pounds down as a refundable deposit and he'll sit round the table and talk to you and he's very very happy to do but so far no one has been able to do that is just ten million pounds as far as he's concerned is gonna three four five hundred million pounds to transfer nukus united but see bruce. He's got a stall saw here. He's gonna play the supporters love. That sounded carol. He's back. There's a short term. Signing could be a good one rebecca kyle. What's dominating your mind when you think about newcastle. Are you still thinking rougher and the way it ended. I you thinking about mike ashley and what he's had to say or are you thinking about the job that steve bruce has to do with talking about. I'm thinking thinking there's a cloud that just follows around this bo club and and you can get lost in the minutia of mike ashley comments and they're sort of rare and i think really honest and most people want to believe leave mike ashley but i think he's probably telling a kernel of truth there and how difficult it was to work with referee bananas because rough benitez saw how difficult the challenge was hit a ceiling you recognize while this owner is still there. The fans have been saying season after season. They're not going to find the stability or the upward mobility that other clubs are reaching spending adding equal or less money and so i looked at the players they signed it and i think the saint saint maximum talented incredible player taking king players on one v one that has a little bit of an attitude problem based on his manager saying that and i'd like them to kind of bend or who is there by the way he asked ben orfa before he went should go to go to me but it just this interesting scenario of. It's still seems like doesn't matter what happens. The sum of their parts is always less than than newcastle fans deserve. What do you make the choice. He's made bringing in steve bruce who i think it's understandable. Steve bruce russa. Jordi is newcastle fans job that he's always wanted to be turned down in his career. I understand that i gotta say it doesn't fill me with confidence is that he is going to be the man. That's going to make this team. Successful and grow and prosper and permanent. I think is going to be a struggle well joining joining and so i think i've talked about strikers permanent. He's got to make he's got to work twenty two now. He's taken the number nine shirt. Andy carroll wasn't mnay kind of an argument about pressure to play eddie. Carroll was smart because he's going to be bring. Energy funds gonna love. Him is going to be a boost for the football coach but we know about his interest situations. You can't rely on to cairo. Scoring twenty goals always to keep them. The permanent jordan has to do well okay. I'm all the way off in the face down to the south coast. Let's talk show enough season in the premier league already. How what have they done on the transfer market. Some interesting acquisitions not come for big big names again eddie our looks below the premier league to bring plays in to spills of <hes> sold them philip billing audibles any one of the few styles without team nineteen million dollars in the premier league on out danjuma from club roof seventeen million knowing kelly from bristol city jack stacey from luton town and yesterday yes. I think it was harry. Wilson has come on young from liverpool. Academy has come on loan to boomer janklow. Enjoy sending players to eddie how i think you to the newsroom back the half isn't it liverpool to the south coast and born with really saying fifth season fly is absolutely remarkable on the budget that they have avid tiny ground eleven thousand. You look at harry wilson on loan. He joins dominic solanki callum wilson josh king. That's quite a quarter of strike as in in king and wilson twenty six goals between them last year you talked about the fifth season now in the premier league no real drama with that eddie how one of his strengths goes down doesn't mind gunned down the legal a tune looking at quality philip billing great pickup for them gives them power and energy midfield the guy don jim they bought in twenty one zero from cl- abruzzo outside the very quick gives them a little bit of pace something different. I just got the sense of they'll be okay. Yeah i'm in credit to anyhow and the staff who are going to find these players because they managed to get decent price players that they tend to tend to improve the squadron. I obviously he's got a short defense a little bit more. They conceded a lot of goals last season. They'll be looking to be stronger defensively. I think the football world rebecca has tried to get new jobs for the last five years. He's still that student doing a fabulous job football muth absolutely thank you all are still to come as we continue annual trip round old twenty percent mealy clubs focused on burnley on southampton on the route have some time under new face in the premier league.

He's nineteen years old here. Antennas arrived from celtic twenty two years of age. <hes> full by a left is back the gomez. They're also sent to sign damage. We've got is one of the deals we are waiting on right now on his instagram account donnie drink to chelsea midfielder says he has joined burnley on loan until january duck data's justice until january and everton another deal tyrany onyx of welby is having a metaphor right now in london evidence sex assigned all souls addicts awoke me for fee somewhere between forty five to fifty million dollars. Some big news still-to-be-confirmed. We're going to continue to bumping into all all the different clubs up and down the league and talking about burnley right now they welcome back academy brought up jake rodriguez <hes> coming in for twelve and a half million dollars also bailey peacock farell goalkeeper from leeds every pizzas from stoke and as i mentioned doney drink water from chelsea to the right of the screen. You can see that tom heaton have gone to us. Benefit ten million dollars awesome pizza crowd trump's retired from football aged thirty eight as well so kyle. Which burnley do you think is gonna this season. The one that two seasons ago qualified for europe oh last season the struggled against relegation. We're gonna see last season burnley that decided to play like the burnley that we saw a few seasons ago and and people forget that incredible season where they were able to climb the table and defy the odds was not a change of style was there. They're still working so well robbie of them being direct of them being compact of them being physical. They got back the end of last year. I think they start the season the exact same way regan. I think it's a really good signing thirty twenty eighty two goals in forty seven in the in the championship last season. I think that's good business donnie drinking online from chelsea again i think back no europa league problems initiate dwight gale nineteen year old player that burst onto scene was really really good. There was talking to some about him. Go into a different club and a bigger club actually overseas. They've kept him decent window. I mean they don't spend spend much money. I think they're going to be okay nail very much the breakout stafa bundy last season. Let's focus on southampton. Shall we on the road passing her. <hes> who came in early ish law season right they put in three players things from the twenty five million dollars they had a maloney's now permanent chatham from birmingham for nine hundred million dollars as well at mussa janette poll who is coming coming from stanley age from two nine hundred million also just to let you know that the southampton deal sheet we told you about earlier on is apparently for kevin down so who's a twenty year old austrian sent back from october which you'll get confirmation the next eight twenty eight minutes of whether or not deals going through looking back to the news. We're back lawler flirted with relegation. The past two seasons chaps are you. You concern gripe about southampton well when the statistic that only one fifteen games out of fifty seven home. That's a worry because every team and that sort of position needs to be secure needs to be getting goals and obviously the strikes adams. They're gonna put a law on him. Obviously danny ings as well. They're going to need to school goals and and get absolutely every ounce out of each of those players is one of those cases all. Don't take anything for granted. It's two years now. They've been allegation. You think of aston villa you think of swans a using think of sunland similar situations low pressure on this kid chatrooms. He's coming twenty year devolve age from twenty. Two goals in the championship was in the year. There's not a good pre season. If human beings will go well for southampton footnote. He's lost his number two gotten to think he's done a role who's been very close with uh-huh touchline. He's gone to buy munich so they're going to be different on the side of the page. One of these key members isn't there. We'll have to see if that affects. Rebecca wanted concerns about the saints going into the new season. Thanks a lot of the monkeys brighton fan as well spent some money and they got a new manager graham potter more on him in just a second as coming for twenty four million dollars from brentford and the division below adam website twenty four million dollars spent on him the defendant from bristol city a couple about the pleasures while they just today wilton our moi a decent signing signing on loan from huddersfield three ounce including what are the key stars the last two or three as antony knockoff fulham on loan the midfielder as well so grandfather he he is the new manager of brighton a little bit about him. If you haven't heard of him appointed on may the twentieth right to the end of the preceding was fired he managed the swedish called for eight years off disowns. The three promotions from the fourth tier swedish were all the way up to the top light also on the swedish capos well he then he went to swansea city for one season plays lovely football apparently hundley. They finished tenth in the championship onto him reaching the quarter-finals. After he finished his apply he retired retired. When he was thirty years old he went on to study an open university degree in social sciences sciences and then he completed a master's degree in leadership and emotional intelligence with leeds metropolitan university with fresh face. We have a new stall. We have somebody with a different approach is quite exciting but is it a risk. There's always a risk but i think what the situation is is the excellent work in sweden because of bad recruitment of brighton <music> over the last two or three years where the players they've spent money on having work. They need to try and find a really super talented coach. Grandpa is a guy that have gone for. I just think he needs help and on one plate lookout for neo moped from brentford twenty five championship goals last season again another striker that needs to do well from the league. I think glen murray aging and the problem with that is that's a that's a permanently player that i was actually impressed with that can help out and it's it's a risk and that sutin was a sure thing and i think that was why he lost his job and i feel form because it became a bit predictable and boring fans but you got sometimes. You've got to be careful what you wish for at this is going to be a more exciting free flowing play but it's going to be riskier could they could've found an absolute jen and grandpa a three more clubs still to discuss today and they are the three newbies norwich chauffeur villanova. What about the premium eve they'd be never four so thanks strengthen well enough to avoid that immediate return to the championship <music> so many gentlemen so many germans they go oh and in hand hand in hand with their lives to because this is one of the great space in my life singing paul smith but you know i do love. It must be blood the amazing you. Have you have dreamt with his team. You've invested a fortune in this team. You've devoted yourself. You've got some great days as with this team. You've had some dark days with this team. You've got moments of one deaf this community when you sing that song and you'll love it won t fail inside. Can you put it into. Would you just set the word. One brennan's off promoted series hosted by alvarado mortar bennett is back featuring in that looks at the premier leaves three newest plops. We're gonna kick things off with norwich shepherd united on september the fifteenth and then two weeks later corrupt things up with us and then the roads in the u._k. Getting interviews with players managers found says he saw so much terrific contact columnists it. We're actually going to be releasing digital shorts all the n._b._c. sports youtube channel as well so stay tuned for those we'll bring you details about that as well so norwich city dhia smith's nor city that runs out since getting promoted sit with daniel faulkner in charge they've boy in a few. I've spent a lot of money to spend billions box on sandbar. The west ham united they've bought in some loan is interesting. They've gone down the loan group. It's an insurance policy whether or not they're thinking about possible immediate return to the championship. You say they've not spent a lot of money although white in the newsroom i back no they haven't done farka gentlemen works very closely with sporting directors weber and graham. They've largely stood with apart from the loan signings. You've seen that the squawk won't got them here. Fifteen new players fifteen of the current squad sign new contracts. What do you make of approaches. They come back into the premium sensible approach and has rebecca said they have about bringing a few plays is on loan this sort of trying to manage the risk thing of something going all into staying in the premier league and he's backing the squad. He's built. I mean they were absolutely prolific. Prolific in terms of their goal scoring ninety nine goals scored the concern. Is that defensively. That's where they where they struggle eighth best defense in this in the second division in the a._f._l. With fifty seven goes against so that's a that's a risk team that comes up. Maybe a little bit like wolves with identity. Everybody talks about this done football. That'd be from the one possession team kooky upfront twenty nine goals. He's going to be important. You'll knock silence was in the team of the lookout for him. It's about whether this group. This group can take what they had in in the championship and bring it into the premier league and retain a personality. Maybe a lot of people's favorites to go down. Maybe the canarias can surprising to you this season well. Maybe i mean it could be a risk. Not spending money also be a risk spending money nickel watson vetere. Doing a lot of money is left. Villa park remains remains. They had him on loan. He's now that now thirty three million dollars to bring him to villa park twenty million wesley mac target from southampton ended up being to twenty two million and just look those figures you go down <hes> you'll you'll picture left of your screen. Just how much money are sevilla on the dean smith. <hes> spending people have said the election permitting designer of on his desk that what venero doing has reminded them what did last year and of course that just didn't jealous right down to it but i'll have rebecca aca the driving force aston villa undoubtedly the c._e._o. Christian puzzling nine be familiar with of course he was the liverpool moved onto chelsea and sponsorship and and mocks in row now is asking of announcing the super premium ambitious man. You probably saw in the playoff final when they won that when franklin paldon he's dhabi county side in the summer the he was on the page with dean smith celebrating the end. He wants to stay in the primary rebecca. Which is why spend big money. He's back dean smith and jones jerry. He won't succeed the man. He's got a very very very different vision. He doesn't want to go back down to the championship. He doesn't mean making up the numbers he wants. He's aston villa side to be progressive to play attractive football to bring the crowds back sevilla golf course and a touch him forty thousand supporters homeland season now the back in the primly. They want some sure rebecca that is exactly where this christian pose big ambitions club nail that last bit for us today. Thank you so much all you could see you in real life roman down by and we'll see what we call. We'll be here on location weekend out great. Thanks that's national premier. League insider so dean smith as neal was talking about that you get the sense. He's a bit of a star in terms of these new faces on the managerial c._n._n. You know play with things with sheffield wednesday. The nicest guy in the world lovely guy sent to buy me and my wife had dinner and stuff. What a lovely. The guy is going to be difficult. I mean trying to create a premier league team with so many new faces is difficult difficult. I think the midfield of aston villa will be similar to next year if not exactly the same greenish we think can be a star in the premier league wesleyan's their striker. They need to hit it off so aw i think it's gonna be difficult season to try and jail and create a new team in this. I guess when you spend money fulmer other cubs who spent spend a lot of money as newly promoted clubs didn't do it on premise players that had any experience. I guess you could say of of wings and target at least some players that have been the per league that committee hit the ground running a bit ghoulish wild. Go has primarily experience wants to prove he's capable of it once again the expense which money because they saved it not having the prayed that when they came up. I think that's that's what they want to spend. It's somewhere well. We know that the future king of england is an awesome benefit and we also know you may not. Maybe tom heinsohn hollywood. Royalty is a massive asam better fan back in may a on monday he said ahead of the playoff final i will bleed claret-and-blue for us and better one match away for tons of premium make up the he went to the game for ped- he would have enjoyed at that moment and no doubt he'll be tuning in all season long as as a back in the big time as all for the first time in a long time sheffield united under chris wall alta. They spend a bit of money. Woven on bernie is coming up to twenty. Four million dollars is called police say from bournemouth get much time. Did he play top of he's come in a aquatic good list phil doug l. case he is boyhood club. He used to play for many moons ago. Also come in sheffield united <hes>. What do we make of their chances. The action this transfer window rebecca in terms of the plays. They've signed is plentiful. Manager seems to be a very very popular figure logo. The chris wilder. What does he bring to that club. I think he brings more than maybe the persona gives off. I think he's bright is intelligent. It's tactically small lookout lookout for overlap incentivize santa bucks. He played with the system mcburney goals for swansea. I think it was twenty four at least me say could bring goals phil jackie alcl ravalomanana's a wildcard that could really come good if he can get on the bull call to see wild a bowl in an should let's talk about rebel morrison because he's been around around a number of clubs yet to really make an impact in the premier league could be less chance saloon here except he's got quality and he had a huge amount of potential. I think he needs. It's all about his relationship with the manager. The manager can get the best out of sherman love but also keep him disciplined then he's got a chance to develop an club there where it's going to be hard work i and talent second if you can get that in the right order morse and could be a good player sure about rebecca on the field but the obrero brennan for nist off lucky you all so much for the twenty nine hundred transfer <hes> window lukaku what what he wanted inter talking to new players including ryan says annual in your today and we're white confirmation that avenue easies and all when you're on the end of our show if you're just joining us this as being the biggest headline woman mkaku has got his wish.
