Bree kicks in screams and the public. Boss aegis these just es super high maintenance and he doesn't think the is getting what he wants. Then it's a box much.

Overall performance was okay from germany today against denmark the majority of the game for them they hit to posts niagara hit one one in the first half then begin the second half there should have actually won that game. Denmark was waiting. Almost i wake up call for the and goal and then they came and impose is goal from a passionate and kristin erickson pretty much the only chance that denmark had in the entire ninety minutes so overall was okay performance and it was very important obviously for germany to reintegrate thomas miller and my mind who moves in the back. Line the looking child. Yeah i'm what have we learned about germany into the arrows. Well data yes. There were a better side against denmark but still a fantastic crews and ericsson opposed goal on the last game. They play was north michael dolan. Yana lost in germany. And if you have a look at the group. They were in with the with hungary. Portugal france germany could be knocked out after the first round. And i'm not saying that. I of course hope but they have to find himself. They have to use these days very good. Normally germans are good at doing that preparation. I had big championships. But i am a bit doubtful of their defense. I mean sooner or not that is best. Who is a great football player. Not the best defender on day conceded today again. So i think we're the germans would say hoping to talk with his team. I'm not sure where they go to find. Just one point connects neurons. Can you just make sure that the magazine or whatever is behind you. I don't think. I don't think anyone needs to see you with beautiful majesty the queen you lifting the trophy which of course should have england back.

Winning ten man wales in the dan delay on the scoresheet. Let's stop the world champion showy jewels. I suppose with regards to the big story going into this game was carrying. Ben simmons return you. Ride on people have been talking about to be fair for the last ten days or even since the squad was announced and today he made his debut. We come back the first time in five years and two hundred and thirty seven days or something. I done gouda shop. He missed the penalty. He deposed as well so he could have been even better than what it was. But what we're all looking for was. He's in the sending them in greece. Men and if they were not making the move not working on each other's toes and i think for third get together for first time together for seventy minutes or something. They look pretty good. They were all just just looking each other understanding each other. The movement battery together and i think he was really promising. Even if we're down to two men because the referee decided to ruin the game by sending of nicole williams when he didn't really need to as a strange decision wasn't considering a friendly and it's all supposed to be about preparation for the year is jill's france. Thanks when you look at that. You've got to win this otherwise it's a massive failure. Thanks for the pressure. Think if you if you carrying beds amount to an already world cup winning squads i think of course it makes them even stronger and we today. I mean he. He's thirty three. He was so good. The movement the first third. She's always amazing with kevin benz. And there's so much more to come. I think because the more we will play with them by agreement by byu command bailey. Contact of them the better he will be. The better team will be what the full three one two one. I'm also sure. I'm not completely convinced. Green as number ten. However there's so many possibilities options solutions to problems even can change through the game. We saw today. Dan billion common coming on a good impact on the game too. So it's really really promising and really exciting. Meanwhile you had been returning for france yeah again. Thomas miller returning to germany correct. I mean everybody's returning you just need to be over thirty and you come back for miller. Favorite number twenty five. They created three more spots now in the european ten up to twenty six so they can squeeze thomas that no no. I mean joking aside. He looks good. Tomas-marella meaney played outstanding season for bio munich. And and he's a team player seems knows exactly what to do on the field. These a leader. He can give really a lot.

"So i think was maybe another option. Maybe the first option. Maybe the second enough to put you know. But i don't think we will happen. What's going on the plan that the fraser. No smoke without fire comes to mind because if it was a simple as that budget comes out and he says i will be here. I don't know these stories are coming from. I'm committed to psg simple. Why not just do that. Shut everyone up and we. We'll move on to question. The only thing he did was posting photo of himself on social media with a phd. Show that saudi did not enough for true. I think he's clearly unhappy by inside that club and probably not so much. He's relationship another. Been more with you and others assistant. He's number two. Who is very influential within the club. I think being so lax discipline everything has to be structured. Everything has to be square and not certainly not. The case in paris hasn't been the case in the last six months. Join the club. So i think on that level. He's been be disappointed by the things that he's seen even sometimes it's not involving him the notice from afar and i think there's a lot of things that he wants sorted out before the next season starts and and we discussed with gabon's well maybe these where to get a new did because that's certainly something. The declared the died he was he was hinting for. Yeah but the. I just saying that john what a young is talking about. We are actually talking about two different candidates down very very different so the two candidates taught them will have is not narcan. I mean whole can you start to have an identity a culture at the club. And then you will. The consequence of that identity is opportunity. No i mean that's never happened then should have two or three candidates kind of kind of signed kelt culture and that is what i think is unbelievable. Encounter comes in for tottenham. Do you have to build up a winning culture and we've seen this week. Chelsea go dubbed makes it very good point that after the tenth place for marino he managed to win the title for chelsea through but they have a cultural winning trophies. Talk now doesn't have that so we need to build that out and then you have to ask yourself as a club is the right one to make the culture of two three years. The answer is probably no on it. Just shows you to candidates counter or patino. Oh please gabby. Who is polish jews that this is. This is nothing isn't even a story. We'll be next season. I mean that was linked with round. So if me like woody tantrum and say you gotta let me go to madrid short but with all due respect to talk hotspur. They're not real madrid. So i think my reading is very simple. I think it's about we've got judicial. It's about the new deal. He's got a year left and you could say just work your contract. We'll see about it later. But you know he would argue. Look i had a good run in the champions league and whatnot and every manager of a top club generally has more than one year left going into the season It gives me more. Authority is shows more faith in me. Give me a new deal. Give me another year Give me some insurances. Maybe vis-a-vis imbaba and whatever and i think that's why he's not shooing away. Those stories linking madrid destroyed thinking of the spurs. I'm not sure i. I can't imagine him. Frankly leaving power says your man now with unless something changes at the club four tottenham finally gab. Oh boy of course presented as the new coach rare madrid today. I'll tell you what if he wants to about koji he could whip around with tv as well. He said every single thing right in this press conference. Great time here. Great relationship with the president. great to be back evolved. The takes every box. He also said something which i think was pretty indicative. Which is i know what it's like to manage route madrid. Because of course he's done it before. I'm not i don't think he's even said it. In the past he left on great terms at the club except for florentino floating. Tina was on the verge of sacking him when they were in the champions league final the ultimately one and then obviously sacked the second year. Because you know manza football genius and he brought in rafa benitez and then sacked rafeh six months later of course. I think that that really stick stuck with him. And there's nothing wrong with changing your mind. It's a sign of intelligence. I think he's a sign of humility from floating day. I say to to go back on on his previous views. And i never thought i'd say humidity in the same sentence but he's right and said look. I made a mistake before now. Things are different now. This is the guy i want. And you're basically getting think he sees him a continuity candidate with zindedine sedan guy. Who's who's a lot. Legs it dan. In many ways maybe a little more extroverted but in terms of managing the older players in terms of being able to play different systems in terms of having delivered silverware. He takes those boxes and like you said he knows the club and of course what else is going to say. Joe's for all of those plans that we've been questioning over the last couple years gareth bale iskoe and has ought. Hey no. i've got faith in one of these players. They are going to be the best on the me. All the winners were automating echoed upset. Thomas fantastic strike ball. What defender was amazing. Kids gun santos. I'm sure you could be set madrid. But but certainly in is management. That's where he would be very good one that they don't want the club he can easily say. Listen you know your time is gone now. This is this new cycle everything you would find the words for everyone. The one who are coming back on loan from from the loan soviet garrett bane he would have been fired up again. Zahn hasn't worked up to season. This is newstalk. This is a new manager. You know that qatar will find the right words for every single member of their squad. The younger one luke why did before also debut to love them and so it would be perfect for all of them. And i think for that just takes the right boxes all the time and a lot more on.

That fee will be only to a foreign club and again abrode. There's not many clubs right now. We can afford became the g. Probably one of them. I guess by an munich you really wanted to. But now we live on skiing team run madrid if they can get the money together maybe one. Oh wait for erling haaland for example. Don't have the money for sure right now. So options are limited outside of the uk and in the uk. We know that she made contacts with hurricanes agent. But it could be. A problem is i. Don't want to sent to them.

Spurs Crash Out of Europe
"Old gentlemen. We'll be starting to show a team. I was against exactly what we will start as dina's grab going through three two on aggregate to josie marino's side dawn halfway through this matchy text me going. No way they lose this in reference. The spurs absolute didn't didn't see losing it. But i would. Horrendous performance was i mean it was ridiculous it was saw by the players. Didn't even look interested. Josie after the game. He was flabbergasted. Must think he's looking at this scorning and this is not a team full of men. This the t michael manage because every now and again this team and some of these individuals go missing. How this happens tv i would. I would have to say it comes down. A lot of it comes down to two konica to be honest with you. You know. I've been in a situation away from home against a aid. The get a goal. There's a huge get behind them and you get swallowed up in the atmosphere that to me is a legitimate excuse. But they don't have excuse me. I want a sola again. This was basically mon- against mon- hoover's the the better character the strength of character to kick on is gonna win this game and a premier league sade couldn't face a team that quite frankly shocked his all by one game. Was it just complacency. Is it out simple. Shang obviously winning. The i like to know just think iraq beginning to get the job done but also scored. They're really like there was only getting we. One would vons thought the first half it was quite clearly two teams. Who who would determine not to concede the for school. And that's what you still forty-five minutes had sixty something percent. Possession couldn't concreted any meaningful opportunities and then in the second half the moselle grab just. They made the transition better. Daddy started to play on the front foot. They went looking for goals. There had to an indian win spurs needed to kind of play on the front foot. There's no they could do. And despite the changes jersey marino bringing hurricane an dome valley it was just a team that seemed more comfortable defending than attacking despite all the attacking players they had in their lineup. Maybe we're on the selling this slightly robert but this is a huge deal isn't it. It's a massive deal because he's not the first time spurs the plate in this manner this season. There's been four or five occasions where they've lacked energy. They've let the right attitude. The started game slowly and then not be not to get back into it and you have to criticize the place but you have to criticize. The manager didn't look as though they were prepared to battle today. They didn't look sent out on the pitch ready to fight for the place in the next round until the going to the opposition and again comes down to the manager as well as the players marino off. The tv said he warned the place. He warned them about complacency going of the second leg. And is it just a case that i didn't listen or he didn't set them up properly would suggest that the probably just too many of them are too comfortable. And just think that when these step on the field is going to happen. I mean looking at say that he here the majority in fact ninety nine percent say played in the champions league final two years ago. No the register get knocked over the league by by menno So i i. The was come for for big changes as far as the plan. Personnel are consumed and asked to be quickly. Otherwise josie is in trouble. Because he's supposed to be this great mon- monitor that we've been talking about for for the decade will clearly. He can't get this team going. And so you'll have the shit limo because if you don't and you can't motivate them. The normal thing that will happen is you'll isn't dead man. Walking don a theme think it seems like donna gospel great question on bt sports afterwards the question to you and you get the feeling. Do you and your players. Do you think you're going to change course in terms of you'll have to get rid of some of your players. Or is he gonna get the sock josie any waffle little bit. It didn't really want to throw him under the bus. Check get live on tv. But it would be. I think would be better off served of josie. Just turn around. And set it bluntly this team. I call manage in terms of getting sucked but the individuals. He called manage because they haven't got the backbone the and got the character you know when you go away from home. You've gotta you gotta show character. You gotta show blood sweat. And tears are your willing to die for tottenham shirt go through in europe and zagreb would all of that tenfold brilliant. You've seen the scenes after the game. They were they left. Everything on the pitch. And joey must be looking not dressing room. You must be looking at individuals and brilliant when you stick them all down on paper you put the squad down on paper and using our any manager in the world we want to manage this squad. I'm not sure you dig a little bit deeper. How motivated some of these players
Dissecting Man United Luke Shaw's Strange Post-Match Interview
"Nothing to talk about that came of course in the job between chelsea united unsurprisingly the media picked up shell. Strange postmatch interview polluting. That was luke. Shaw coming out and saying the. He heard the referee towel harry. Maguire the couldn't give the penalties the penalty because it recalls too much controversy. Power mcguire has come out and said show misheard anyway. My saying all of this leads up to social saying well. The referee didn't give the game gave the penalty because everyone hates manchester united now. The referee admits it couldn't give it because it would cause too much of a fuss and the also admitted that the chelsea website behind everything bad. That's happening man just united at the moment. Because it's then who said. Keep an eye on harry. Maguire and this man united lot because they might give away a penalty dawn. How do we dissect all of this while. I mean where you wanna stop. I would say look bang out of voter. The players and the referee sites which should be strictly confidential in referee sites plaza and players of communication referees. On the pitch not shouldn't get anywhere near in my opinion into an interview after the game. They've got to keep quiet. No good for the game whatsoever. But then you go into all ec enough to the gunman hayes. Massively deflected away from yet. Another poor performance against help six. The only goal scored. Monday united was in russian against tottenham when they lost six waterproof not being quite dire so i think as a clutch and massively done. We'll talk about this running against the the big six minute. But i just want to go back to something that i think we've ever actually discussed on this show steven considering we discussed everything like an unwritten rule. Basically what referees and players say to each other than shouldn't be exposed to the media heard that before knob sister ray thing to do i don't i don't think we'll see is not a referee alive. He's going to tell to a player. And say i didn't give a decision because it could be controversial. I mean that is just ridiculous. Listen i've been. I've been playing and coaching for thirty years. And football and referees matan good ones average ones a lot of incompetent ones. But i'll tell you what they're all honest and they'll make decisions the time they don't go around looking at websites and thank could be a keep me on penalty decision that i'm not going to get because that's what all the time i mean. Just don't don't kid yourself as absolute nonsense and look shaw. You watch the video lou. Shaw as even in the camera. He's behind the referee. The goal at the back of his head to show shawl thanks he had then is beyond me and thankfully highly mcguire chemo and said as much which leads us to the next point which is so bringing this up because surely he should've rectify things on made sure everything was one hundred percent right before he then goes and and spill to the fire by bringing again in the post match interview. All right. let's say for sake of argument. That indeed only gonna so. Scar is checking now. The websites of all the teams in the premier league and how they're influencing the referees. And what that may do against medicine. Let's let's just assume that that's this is what he's doing as far as preparing his team or his own preparation for the game. Why would you come on and say that in public. Will you tell the world that you care about the chelsea website. And what their material is. How does that make you look asa manager. How desperate insecure paranoid does that make you look that. You are concerned about whatever's going on in chelsea website who's running the chelsea website. And what do you care about that. This is honestly of all the things that you can bring up with managers. This is the one that i'm just kinda like. Why do you care. This have to do anything. We whatever's going on on the field and that's your responsibility. What goes on on the field. You can control but this the lusa website is a problem. That's another issue to stevie show has obviously told all that straight after the game yet. You know unless. I can assure you you don't listen to what please tell you. After again. the runner genders thought. So what happened in the game and and the majority of them don't really know again and won. T believe that things and that's exactly what shows done. He wants to believe that should ref said so. He's decided so then he goes and tells these manager after the game. And that's why only staying on the on the interview because all these not saying unless luke shaw has actually told them so shows the one that's all i don't necessarily think the all is because he genuinely tame believed what shows told them but there should be a lesson
Who Needs the Europa League Title Most?
"Here's your to win. The europa league manchester united installed his early favorites. Actually co-favorites with spurs english teams. One two three even arsenal getting a better odds to in the euro league van c milan. Let's focus in on those three english clubs specifically their managers. Craig i'll start with you. Which is three need to win the europa league. Most i suppose seventy one hundred in milan because the book is going through. That could be the only reason i passed. Thank josiah marines. When there's the most. Because i think he's the mine under most pressure. His league possession at moment stinks the team's performances have been pretty rotten in terms of on the eye on the country mile off the top four. At one point the talk was others team in the title race and so he needs to deliver something otherwise. He's under severe pressure. I mean you could say well attack. The does he's got cut behind them transition to ask no. I think he's pretty safe there and they talk for. There's no doubt about so. I actually think marinas the mon- needs it. The most stevie you agree they still got a shot at hardware in the league cup final. They got a shot at top six. Maybe an outside shot at top four spurs really. Need this most absolutely think so. Yeah arsenal. yeah we think point lead over you. He's he's got an f. e. cop behind them less than two months ago so he's fine creek said during transition marino. Another honda is is is not in my opinion going to be in the top four. That's why he was brought and it wasn't brought in to do anything else so it's important that he does produced. So we're because that will deflect away from what has jaw was and the premier league and unfortunately for him yes. He's a the problem is they'll position gsa city who nobody wants to face. So i'm one hundred percent we create. This is absolutely marino. And tom mark from the manchester united perspective. Just how important is this to jar. His record and cup. Tournaments is well documented over four in finals. Big without first trophy be. I think it needs to win one soon. Because it's now four years when united trophy on a long time and they always have the opportunity in the kaaba cup of one. One that need is more than tottenham because five years at the champions league. The asked really really the champions football. I it's sick of being semi-finalists are knocking on the door. They're not gonna win the primarily this season to trophies. This is man united. We're talking about. We're talking about the process itself alongside by munich real madrid barcelona as one of the biggest club in the world. The biggest clubs in the world win trophies and is now four years since one. United one one-stroke trophy with the minor the minor cops. Let's be honest. The league company europa league in two thousand seventeen. They haven't won a big trophy since whilst explosion retired. Let's be honest. The two thousand thirteen primarily because even fa co-ops and the von hall didn't really count towards the biggest trophy so united. Need over the start winning again. And i think social really needs it but if he doesn't win a trophy this season i don't think it'll be the end of their old firm. I think you'll still be there. But i do think the to kick on become this team is going to challenge for the majors. They have to win something. So craig no no i just think off the bucket marks point that yet yeah financially obstacle. But we're talking about modules marina for the reasons that steve and i say and and say well and it's a big f because it's not you know some good teams in there. They say it was a year in the league and we lost hurricane and we will see all these excuses. You'll save won the europa league a nuts champions league football because that's the carrot dangled for when the euro league note from a united perspective. As augie said you know when you're polite for them and their historical standpoint is neither here in the last good marino himself. He delivered second-place mandated. Emily he delivered the gop league undesirable cup. So they've done recently. They really need to be the primarily title at least go neck and neck all the way until publiz reasons you take a trophy as a manager and you would take if you united but really the dining a much. Bigger table than the europa league
Who is the international community?
"Myanmar's progress towards democracy. During the two thousand and ten with nobel peace laureate aung sang suu as de facto head of government was widely understood as a good news. Story this week myanmar's military. The top madore decided that the democratic experiment had proceeded far enough claiming fraud in the most recent they threw a coup. D'etat seized power. Back and returned san suu now. Tarnished as an accessory to the tottenham does own recent accesses to detention the international community has responded predictably and in famous correctly demanding respect for the election results the restoration of constitutional order and so forth. Also this week. Us president joe biden in his first speech on foreign policy since taking office declared that america was ready willing and able to resume its traditional self awarded role as lead of that international community. But at this point what actually is the international community who decides what it thinks and are there really any penalties for defying or ignoring it. This is the foreign desk. But you're now seeing two sets of institutions governing although it's questionable how much actual authority the people without guns have to force their parliamentary decisions. At this point. The burmese military should relinquish power. They have seized release the advocates and activists and officials they have detained suspected. Criticism from western countries has relatively little direct. But it's not that they don't care at all it's noteworthy that they've gone to just extraordinary lengths to create alibis covers for the coup the very few occasions when you say that sanctions all the threat of sanctions hadn't affect i think would be the ending of the apartheid period south africa but they require cooperation and agreement among any state that has major economic relations with a particular state that is really under threat of sanctions. So that's pretty rare frontier. Hello and welcome to the foreign desk. I'm andrew muller joined first of all by amen taunt a reporter based in yang-gon well first of all let's try and make sense of what has been occurring this week. How did the first hours of the coup ataur unfold as you experienced it. Was there a heightened military presence in the streets was a news broadcast social media alerts. How do they establish power. It's not like they lack practice this by now. Sure so the first couple hours were extremely chaotic. One was quite sure what was happening. Although most people had figured out that there was a coup so basically most people woke up on monday not being able to use their phones so there are some cards. Weren't giving them service. There was some rewards that depending on which company you are with. You have some level of service depending on where you are in the country. You had some notable service. But for me i couldn't call out and i didn't have any mobile data. Luckily i have wifi at home. Which is not true for a lot of people but yeah in the first few hours in django that weren't really military much of a military presence as far as i understand. Although in the days leading up to the coup there were some quite frightening pictures of tanks in yanko near military installations and what has gone. Felt like since how much of what was already passing for normal life i guess given the pandemic but how much is the feel of the city changed since the coup d'etat. Everyday's a little bit different. So the first day i went out to the markets just alexi what i could over here talk to people because you know people were getting online and a first a couple hours. Not everyone knew. The markets were busier than normal. There were more men. The normal people seem like they were ignoring the one person per household rule a lot more than they were. Previously people are largely ignoring the rules at this point in the pandemic here. But yeah like you just saw a lot of groups of people as opposed to the person who cooks which is generally a woman here but a couple hours in so maybe around nine. Ten people started panic buying especially rice. A lot of rice shops ran out of rice quite early in the morning. You know they generally never run out that bryce they usually are quite. we'll start but by the evenings. The supply chain was flowing again and had sort of compensated and the streets emptied out after a while but there was a while where people were trying to rush the banks. All the banks shut the atm set down. And then people try to. The gold shops and the gold shops started shutting down this
"tottenham" Discussed on Chelsea Mike'd Up
"I'd have a representative sample to form an opinion on kyw habits so i am hoping that in this mason mount performance there might be hint of work. Habits can be effective for thomas. Teuku division here at chelsea. It's really unfortunate. That sound picks up a knock bad luck on top of an adjustment period. We still haven't really seen the brilliant kyw habits that was worthy of that record signing for chelsea but diego silva great ruediger good mendy. I mean he stepped up one called upon as a what else can you say about this guy. Always in the right position. We saw a starting eleven. That featured adequate reese james callum hudson and who's now in that mix and made it work at least for sixty five minutes and boy we were holding on for dear life and i was really interested how that right side would work because again the most important thing you can do is against sahu. Men is prevent that counterattack but actually what they did was completely turned it on. Its head which. I thought what the guys on picot did a really good job pointing out at halftime. Which was they stayed up the pittsburgh vine and son and put flooding numbers in behind them. And when you say that davies and dire davis and dyer had a bad game it was because they were overwhelmed by the by the volume of hudson adore running at them. With reese james coming down the right and that's really glad to join in and there was essentially no help so that right side is where chelsea got so much joy in that first half and i thought two-goal completely outwitted josie marino in that tactical battle in the first half fairplay josie though they adjust in the second half and it was a tougher game. Not just because of the fading from chelsea. But because tottenham responded they press higher up the pitch they saw a weakness in tiago silva no longer being in the middle of that back three and pick some chelsea scabs there but ultimately chelsea hang on for the clean cheaper. You're right it. Was that access down the right. It's got so much going forward. Yeah christianson was put it in a tough spot. Having to replace he goes silva. I thought christianson did some really good things in the attack actually made some pretty good runs but positionally. He wasn't as consistent as say tiago. Silva who i mean. He does great predictive analysis. When he's out there on the pitch you see this with the older players that maybe they don't have the pace they want us to have maybe th. They don't have the athletic skills as diminished year over year. But they find ways to get in the right spaces and limit the amount of running that they have to. You're seeing that with aspirin quetta and silvo. Who's just a freak of nature. But while christianson data admirably in replacement duty you could see the deficiencies in the defensive aspects of his game. They're chris tottenham. Obviously we went into this match thinking that and by the way congrats on your exacto two in a row why i got the i got the paper hands. I nervous when. I saw this starting eleven because i thought it was weird. Did chelsea get rope a dope tier or was that a vintage halftime adjustment josie marino consults the notepad. He didn't really have much say. During that. first half as tottenham..
Liverpool hit their stride in victory at Tottenham
"Six place firs hosting fifth-placed liverpool and this match did not disappoint liverpool running out three one winners for me. no alexander. Arnold monitor the scores for liverpool hoi with a brilliant goal for spurs but that's all they could muster liverpool then move into fourth jump west ham. Four points off the league lead spurs sitting six eight points behind league leaders manchester city. Steve nicol shocker. His life jurgen klinsmann with us tv. How good we're liverpool. Today i think on the team were there. Were excellent. you talk about open attack football. That's exactly what you go. You talk about creating chances. That's what you saw you got. Three goals disallowed and you other opportunities that maybe could have made this school lane way. Bigger than actually funny stop is with your first and six choice a box and then james melda then five year old. He's probably fourth choice in the middle of the park. I mean what performance really to dispose and play the way they did School the goal fantastic performance. You're going to attack has been slipping of late liverpool. What was the difference in this one. Well the defense was Liberal group created more chances and finish them off as well. I mean who who knows what would have happened. If someone's goal in the third minute would have been a regular goal by divorce rightfully so it was disallowed. But if that would have been the lead for spurs maybe different story. But i think than liverpool really controlled the game Scarlet three beautiful goals. Even if you know part A spurs pack but they never created enough throughout the ninety minutes. It was obviously a big blow to lose hurricane at halftime if injury again so deserved victory from liverpool cobble of outstanding performances from their side. I look at Tiago first and foremost he played an incredible game and obviously they have their strike spec scoring going forward shock. Oh what are you. Come away from this match. More impressed with what liverpool did or disappointed in spurs performance impressive what liverpool dead given given the issues that liverpool had come into the coming into this one as tv rightly pointed out. But at the same time. Don't don't let that disguises five. That i am hugely disappointed with so much about spurs on the performance today against this liverpool team who you know kind of makes if the time i thought spruce threatened to dominate the midfield. Because never pool. Don't have any real Baldwin's in their own midfield as as always with sonnen key and In they're talking line. They looked so bad on the counter attack. Key don't missy has to come off but then you look at what liverpool dead or semi spinach allowed them to do and the buildup to the first on robinson is allowed ten yards into the swiss hard before anybody thinks about getting clueless to picks out the pasta. The one player who's been running behind them all game long. And then it's a defensive mystique by dial for the second goal. Laurie should have done better tough but he wrote on should have done better And in the end despite the fact that maybe you can Yourself with the fact that he three goals three defensive mistakes liverpool despite all issues were by far the best team. You're gonna any issues. The spurs approach sounded well in all. They obviously almost called the goal. It was allowed for for someone. But then throughout the entire game that didn't create create enough hurricane until he obviously was subdued then because of the injury Was never really into the game. And it's it's just simply not enough liverpool. Look like they could score. You know every minute. I mean we had a couple of opportunities already in the first half and Obviously when you didn't have individual mistakes can happen in philly especially in the first two roles then You really look bad at the end of the day. Stevie i suppose proof today the an order for them to win games. They can't go to over the proper football team and we can't in utah men behind the ball. Then they can do that and it can break on you. But this became an open game and can't do an and jozies komo after the game and pretty much has not had one world appraiser liverpool only said is all the mistakes they made. Well let's say the mistakes and made is because of the pressure would because they were so open that the defenders can't handle it and liverpool school goals so listen supposed to meet today proved exactly what thought torty taw against the proper team. Not good enough. They have they have to sit down with the ball and try and be clever and get on the attack.
Fauci on What Working for Trump Was Really Like
"Don't know if you caught this today. The the new york times interview with feci dr home really on what working on yeah. It's an interview. They had him for an hour Task him about working for trump was really like so from denial. Ism to death threats. Dr anthony fauci describes a front year as an advisor to president. Donald j trump on the covid nineteen pandemic. And you know what. What's so interesting about this interview for me. Kim is how despite the headline and a clear attempts to almost make it sounds salacious. There is nothing about this interview. That is even remotely salacious. If anything it's it's it might even be considered a bit drab aside from yes the reality that dr fauci. His family faced death threats. He had an envelope full of a powder that showed up at his office. And you know people had to come in with has matt suits to determine whether it was you know a harmful substance turned out wasn't but aside from that cam what's really interesting is just how much dr fauci kept his cool through this entire process and you know when people were thinking well what happened coachee. Did he disappeared. did he get fired. and he talks very pointingly about this that his job is to be honest. Youthful transparent. that is his role and he is not prepared to compromise in that regard at all full stop and that led him to effectively. Keep quiet in many ways. Almost you know if you can't say anything nice. Don't say anything at all cam. He sort of got to a place where he could not in good conscience. Get up and be supportive of the message that the administration was conveying and the reality was quickly becoming that time he did speak. He was contradicting the administration. And then the administration you know behind closed doors would kind of lean into him and say you can't say this you can't say this But yeah just just the dedication of this man to maintaining the message maintaining the message staying true to his to his beliefs true to his education. True to background true to science and true two facts regardless of the obstacles that he faced along the so. Is it worth your time. Yes is it a as salacious As the you know the the the headline might suggest no not at all on the contrary. It's exactly what you would probably expect dr fauci to say right down to his his closing remark where you know the reporters clearly trying to bait him into saying that. Donald trump is responsible for You know all the cova deaths and he says look you know i. I don't have any scientific evidence to confirm or deny one way or the other that he is directly responsible. So i'm not going to touch that Yeah i i hope that one of the things that we get back in the future is an understanding of who the messenger is and who the newsmaker is and you know a foul. She was like you said he's there to tell the truth and to share his expertise and if he says wear a mask people get angry about that is not really she pushing masks. He's saying this is what his years of experience and training of tottenham and for some reason. We have discounted
SportQuake CEO on Launching EsportQuake, Getting Cristiano Ronaldo into Garena Free Fire
"Fire at freeflyer is actually one of my favorite games to focus out of the Esports gaming world right now due to its massive success primarily in Brazil, which also makes it a natural choice for football partnership home considering Brazil's love of football going back decades and this partnership centered around operation quota, which debuted in December and allowed players of free fire to play em as Cristiano Ronaldo the which is pretty cool deal Matt. How did that deal come about? What was the process like to bring one of the biggest names in the world? It's Sports in other entertainment and so like Liberty into a mobile Battle Royale greater freefire. Yeah, it was it was a really exciting project to work with the guys on Thursday from the whole kind of ideation and blueprint of the idea through to the the integration and Page the final execution both in terms of the in-game integration and and the marketing around the partnership I think life to start at the beginning. I set up sport Quake fifteen years ago, and I had a background in media and Thursdays soccer or football a depending on what we're calling it today, and I'd worked at a number of large advertising agencies and then moved into sport media page. With Sky Sports is the Premier League host broadcaster and then spent four years as commercial director at Tottenham Hotspur, which is one of the big three London football franchises wage. And when I set up sport quake in that time over the. I view is very much that we're in a world where they, you know Sports Media Tech and gaming increasingly are coming more and more together and we're seeing lots of really really interesting collaborations as a result of that and primarily right. It's about bringing these two different audiences together to create more impact and awareness. And so as you and and your listeners, no doubt will be aware or if not, you know free fire, which is owned. No, Karina which is part of the C group. We've worked with the c group to some time and we've worked with an e-commerce business they have which is very strong in Southeast Asia that offers a service similar to Amazon in those markets and see is actually the best performing Chef globally over the last twelve months. I think it's kind of five EXT over the last twelve months and is within that organization as the e-commerce business Sharpie. It has to read free flight and we're done some work with with Sharpie with Ronaldo in the fall of 2018 and it performed extraordinarily well and through that and then relationships with out throughout the group the guys that Greener thoughts. It could be something here to do something with him as well. But with their own sort of twist and that was really where the kind of Genesis of the idea came from to bring his audience and IP together with With Their audience and they obviously are the the number one game. If not, the number one guy one of the the very top games in the world. I mean, I think they have something like two hundred and fifty million downloads and a hundred million daily sneezes and and Ronaldo himself in terms of his social media following putting aside what he delivers through the TV platform around baseball games. He his social media follow me is is the biggest in the world or anyone right? So he's got over for bigger than the cardassians bigger than J Lo and a dog Oh force and he's got something like four hundred and fifty million plus followers. And so the idea was to bring these two giants together in Partnership. Absolutely. I pulled up the list of the most played mobile games by player count and you said four hundred fifty billion. That's exactly what grade at last reported. According wage is article it August 2019, but they were one of the most downloaded mobile games in the world in 2019 to your point and have driven just a pretty insane bout of viewership at my favorite example of just sort of how big Great a free-fire is is the Esports organization loud gave a down in Brazil. They launched in I think mid June 2018 and have crossed their one point seven billion views on their YouTube channel for comparison the FaZe Clan account, which has been running for ten years now and has numerous viral videos is that just over what billion views so two years loud gaming which focuses almost entirely a great a free fire has completely surpassed FaZe Clan's called Dead output. Yeah, really quickly that just kind of gives you an idea of hey, this is how popular this game is. And and I think really where their their their view was listen, and as the market leader, we really want to lead and and and set the agenda and you know clearly we have as you just said large choice, you know of of of of gamers in terms of you know, everything from Hardcore to get real Gamers, but there's something really exciting here that we think we could do to Delight. Both are are cool gaming fans while also bringing in even more mainstream players to the game and also just kind of Setting the agenda for the industry in terms of you know, this is how you do these collaborations. Absolutely, that's really crucial to and let's talk a little bit about that collaboration. We you mentioned how everything is coming together and free fire it off is actually representation of just how far Tech has advanced recently. What do you think about what mobile games were even four or five years ago to the point that there now seems reals which is the most server intensive Gabe that you could a badge it with 100. I'm not sure how many people actually drop into free-fire but you know, the typical number is 100 people dropping in at the same time as to do that auto mobile photo, but will technology and something that old he became possible in the last few years. And now you also see at the same time the ability to bring Cristiano Ronaldo into the game and that's something that you know, we've seen with games like FIFA in the past where they model people they model real athletes in those situations, but there's something different to bring home. Into a battle royale, I'd have the play a character this case kro. Do what had to happen on the back end to make this a reality. Was there any hesitation for any of the parties about potential free Christian although into a game like free fire? Yeah, so so obviously we've worked with Ronaldo and his people a number of times before the great relationship with them. And as I say, he had worked with us before with their e-commerce business shopping and so there was a relationship with the group home and we obviously talked him through the the opportunity. We Karina and very much felt that the worst some things to be aware of around the table game it was but that if we executed it in in the right way that it could be really amazing. And so, you know and and back to your point about the the quality of of tech and delivery nowadays, you know and and huge shout-out to to Garena, you know, they they they pull together this amazing kind of personality and character both conceptually and also graphically off and it was developed in conjunction with Cristiano and his team as well in terms of the various things that he could do and so forth and so, you know the exit the idea Asian execution that have been phenomenal when as you say that, you know, we wouldn't be able to do that if if take wasn't where it where it is where is today off? But yes, it's it's really it's really amazing and the thing that's so you
Is Mourinho to Blame for Spurs' Poor Form?
"It's thursday. i'm gap. He's jewels jobs. We got so much stuff going on because mountie. She'll put your gino winning his first trophies manager. I think his first kofi ever i. We'll be joined by franklin buff to talk a little bit about that in a minute. Manchester united top of the league first time in january. First time since the sir. Alex ferguson era by your munich. Out of the german cups is i don't mean the be. Let's start with tottenham hotspur because we've been talking about their chances are they're going to be better worse than last year. How they're pushing. I feel like i've seen this again. I think they've dropped ten points from leading positions. They played fulham last night. You figure you know not easy but full no time to prepare as well. We'll get to that in a minute. And there's more count sempe gab. They take the lead the play well for twenty five minutes and then they stop the talking and they just want to protect that lead. They want to control the game to manage the game. But there's another hour to go. But he's not a bad idea necessarily when you've sawn and harry kane and all these counter-attackers but you don't even counterattack. You do nothing. You just sit deep and you just wait and we saw that against wolves. What wolf scored in the end we against palace. Guess what in the end and now we see that a home at home against fulham where you just stop playing hurricane. One sean tonga. The whole game. That's his goal twenty minutes in after that. Nothing just nothing and i just don't understand why i'm more for protecting your lead in the last ten minutes you bring another center box in or i don't know you you put back five and you you make sure that you don't leave to more space and etc but no one. There's an hour to go. Don't give not extra confidence to the opposition team. Don't invite pressure. don't let them play. I i take your point. I'm wondering if maybe this was a game. Where i thought was very good when he was on the pitch. This is maybe a game where i always mentioned him. But if you have a lasalle so that you can bring on that may be all of a sudden you can keep the ball more. You can keep the ball further away. You can be a little bit more balanced in in how you do it. You know rather than going. I mean if you're if you're just right now do you go and you knock it down. Levi's store and say look. Don't look at me. This is the best i can do in this thing. That's true i don't. I'm sorry. I don't think that's the best you can do. I don't know the price. I lease the last time i spoke to some of them. They were happy but since december the six when they went top of the table the seven in the league. They lost two hundred four. I mean this is. This is not good enough. This is just not good enough. And i think you could say your needs better player or you need different profiles there and they're still. I still think that he gets his wrong. That tactics is wrong because the pleasure doing what he says. he's saying. Okay win the lead saw against arsenal in a second of and they were up and that was fine and they managed to get out and okay good but as we said against war against pilots against on this. Just not good enough. I'm sorry you keep talking. Last night. In a game against tim against fulham who had played three days three days before with the strongest team in the africa because he didn't play again for another week.

"Mullet bloom. They start in the bench again. There's it you tell me. Bill cut change a game. If he's so why not getting a head headscarf. How do you explain your the gareth bale situations. I was so excited when they lost son coming back to save spurs. This season yet is impact has been minimal. Be i'm talking about to a spurs fans obviously in even my former teammates and so it's very difficult to to comprehend a gareth. Bale situation But as craig said you know if you don't put in it kind of a certain point in time then a lucas. Mora or daily or gareth. You know it's it's it's just put up a big question. Mark you know why because you become too dependable on son in hurricane and i think this called the two of them scored twenty two out of thirty goals or something so so in in order to break these teams down. I mean give again them. Pick big respect for their performance day in order to to kind of create chances and and and really put them on their on their back foot unique creativity. You need some ideas. You need some surprise Surprising elements and they were not on the field. In the second. Half there was no nothing surprising coming out. Any more of the spurs spurs game going forward and. That's why a lot of sports fans are just wondering what's going on with these players. That are remaining. Unfortunately on the bench sorta hoiberg socor done a great job. Ripe the graphs. Their workers spread the koran and running behind and hog protect. And he's not a great passed of the bulk so he keeps it simple but but attains when you need players and then there are games and then you don't need them as much and then there's endgame where you don't need an clearly today as a game where you need less defensive players and people that can utilize possession of the ball to supply the sons and the hurricanes more often than just the council that that's the frustration. The i would look at tottenham team and say here's one of the best chances to an mix in a long time because we've talked to the drop off from city and liverpool. The points will tell you that that's factual here's a fantastic chance to get really in the mix and if this son kane partnership that you're mansion can manage to get through the end of the season who knows i mean. I think likely. If i was a spouse fan i would be looking at. Yeah and then got the frustration of not been able to change defensive mindset in games against teams the i think they should be bullying and dominating and really putting pressure on. I was talking to fund. That would be my frustrations. If you're a tottenham player. Would you have similar. Frustrations frank depending where i play. You know if. I'm oberg and wings even so cool. I'm the leader of the game. Because that's what it is right now. And that's that's what he shouldn't be we should we should wonder why early bail don't play is because you the situation in the taxi that boy you puts down. It's the fact that you have to get the ball back. And who's the best in getting. The ball back is over wings and soco. Yes if i was a defender. I will be pleased as well because i've got three in front of me working hard and mostly most of the time. You don't concede goes. I will try to the cliche. I would be frustrated. If i'm k- or son because many bogged do i get. I came defending as well taking tackles in the last twenty yards of on his own side which is completely abnormal. Because you waste energy and you should ask a question to you again. As a striker you want to keep the energy in front of the goal. You don't want to go back and defend like crazy that we came doing. And maybe you. You have a lack of freshness at some point this has been hasn't yoga and the fact the hurricane and it's clearly a key part of what's happened so far but not necessary as a striker but just all over the page. Doing the dirty work former reno does not have repercussions going forward as well while. It's a lot of load on on the shoulders of hurricane also of sawn if these two the most dangerous players in in the spurs team so become dangerous you've been become predictable so if the the opponents know that it's all it's all down to harry and installed onto sanjeev. Let's let's shut them down. It's double them right away when they get the ball. Then it's it's too easy. Obviously daily penned on deliveries depend on mean to be fair to jose also ahead for clear chances in the first half and then the game is over. So son has his chances. Dare harry had another one. So then we would talk me differently about it but you just whisk if you if you blame Three more defensive minded midfielders. You just risk that. There's no no creative element anymore there when you really badly needed when things go wrong when it's not going the way you want to. So then you need somebody kind of to pull the strings and number ten behind the two strikers or just connector a really connected that has a division between the lines that can also maybe skull himself. And that's something that was missing today. Meanwhile.

"Percent. Chances Hurricane another good one if you put them in then it's totally different story Obviously it's all about consistency and new. If you want to win the title in the you've got to be consistent and you've got to put those type of games away and then fortunately they didn't do that today. Unfortunately that Fallen back into the game. Got to give them credit as well played a very very tough game that give everything they had. That's what to expect because they fight early gatien so once it's called the equalizer they even try to go. Go full reno there. So it's a lost fo- spurs absolutely lost opportunity to catch up with the top two That's that's the way it went from. The only time spurs did anything in the second half really of note was when i got the equaliser kick out the back side. They needed to get back into life. But you think come on. You know you're supposed to be a team that we talked about being a title contender just a month ago. Why can't you take a stranglehold on the side on you finish them off a simply because one of shen normally to play contracting and meaning playing contract in this in fact that you don't on the ball you don't you leave the ball to the others and you run after the ball and guatemala just made an interview seeing that they've been struggling My city because of the ball and they were running after the ball indicate the they were getting tired. As you can set i think tottenham at many many chance in the first alfred scored it would have been would have been another story but because you run after the ball and i think lamb did very well keeping the ball and making is first running the they got tired and beginning to make the for the two the second half because they couldn't anymore and esther.
Looking back: Tottenham Hotspur vs Liverpool, 1995
"Fa cup like little bit sparkle so far. So we thought we'd take you back to one. Thousand nine hundred tottenham against liverpool anfield jurgen klinsmann score in the winter to see spurs book. A place in the semifinal yorgen and robbo back with me. What was striking when you take a look at the goal is the celebration in the complete ecstasy from those on the bench for the spurs fans in attendance. It kind of brings you back to more of a day where you feel the. Fa cup was was more. Relevant was a bit extreme. I think you know. Obviously if the fans in the stands it's a whole different game and all suffering covid at the moment but but I i mean the experience. I had In those years in in england definitely river meaningful in terms of the fa cup Is a religion fully english. People is is is so important. Sometimes i mean. At least a tottenham my days it was almost more important than championship and And then when it happens maybe by accident that you win you know a quarterfinal game at liverpool. And they haven't won for many years and enfield road then then things are going bit out of control but you can just. You can just see how much it means to you to the fans to your your teammates as well it was going to be when goals spurs and when you're looking back not only. It was a very special moment that you obviously won the game identity. But but i never will forget that at that situation at that moment was just the way. The liberal ville faints basically on so we went to our corner. A lot of tottenham fans were and we we think them and applauded them. And and i will never forget. I turned around and i thought okay. The rest of the stadium is probably gone by because out there for ten minutes or something but they weren't there at the stadium was still packed and then we turned around and walked towards locker room and the whole stadium stood up and gave us standing ovations to liverpool. Fans did that. And that's what kind of i never experienced anything like that before. My career never ever afterwards because It shows you the understanding of the english fans when an away team is that given day a little better and then comes away with a win and they they all know al performance and there was something very unique in my my time when you speak to anyone who's played of that generation genuinely they say it was on a par with championship. Is that fair. It was it was above the championship. I'll give an example. If we played mentioned united home at highbury in a league match. You'd get thirty. Five thousand in the faa get sixty thousand and My biggest memory is an biggest atmosphere. That i played in was an fa cup semifinal against mentioned united played at villa park there was sixty thousand there and when we arrived to the ground to hop us one went out onto the pitch. At two o'clock the ground was full. The atmosphere was unbelievable. It was it was. It was meant to be a tough game. Pitches weren't particularly good. It was played on a bumpy pitch but the atmosphere was incredible. It was it was really what everybody wanted to win. And we could. We get to the fun on fortunate. We lost the game two one but it was It was always sticks in my memory will be the atmosphere both hostile and in terms of the just the noise that came out the ground.
Argentines bid final farewell to Maradona as national mourning begins
"Welcome into this special edition of espn fc as we pay tribute to diego maradonna. Who passed away today at the age of sixty craig burley with me here in the studio you can clinton joining us a little later on in the program to talk about what it was like to play against him. We also welcome to the show gab. Marcatti and argentine colleague from espn deported. Ricardo ortiz is with us rookie. I want to start with you to try out. Some how important. Maradona was for argentina. Hi guys pleasure to be with all of you. Maradona as the most important figure ever in argentina i. It doesn't matter what where when everybody would always talk about madonna. He's a legend. Now the idol and now a legend. I it's just unbelievable the morning and what people on the streets are doing in the middle of a pandemic they don't care if in argentina right now for example in the stadium of book juniors. There's hundreds of thousands of people probably a lot more tonight gathering where he played and won a championship. There's hundreds and thousands of people gathered around out of junior stadium where it all started and there's hundreds and hundreds of people outside of his house in a very poor neighborhood. Outside of one is ours. Quality fiorito the house where he grew up on with dirt floors lighting candles every street every corner every city. Every town people are out on the streets and tomorrow in the funeral it will be in the government's palace. They're expecting over a million people tomorrow in the center of one side is to say goodbye to somebody. Who's the most famous argentinian for us. And the most famous argentinian around the world ever so people are really suffering something that they knew it was going to happen sooner rather than later. What a player was. Yeah i mean multiple world cups. They played on one one obviously in a sex with not the best argentina site but he was amazing went to spain and eighty two and played in the world cup's twenty one year old a way in his shoulders. One so young at that point got himself sent off from the big game against brazil will even lend from the came back was even stronger delivered and one of the things that were thinking about is up until his death today. If he'd gone to any club to visit and the world the moment be the biggest clubs in germany. spain. Italy england every player. Some of these players are superstars. Everyone of these players would have wanted a photo. We've seen some of the pictures videos during the when he did go and visit Clubs over the past few years and an all these guys all the ones to do a photo. Welcome because everybody just know what a superstar boys and it could walk into any club under beg stars would all be over to say please. Can i have a full. Because that's how much people hold them and respect gap markazi with us as well gabe. Obviously we heard how argentina is hurting in particular as naples today. No question about it. People are out there on the streets in naples. Even though of course there is a curfew going on right now The connection that he made with naples obviously his adopted city and some might look some of the darkness in his life and pinpoint. That is the moment when when things started to go wrong for him by you know you. You speak to his teammates former teammates and dal speak of of his generosity. They speak about how he was always front and center always standing up to be counted. Random people on the street and to this day in the streets of naples. You'll find murals tomato. You'll find shrines to montana. He had a hold over a city city. That was when you arrive was was beaten down was was impoverished had never won a title There's a divide between the wealthier north of italy in the poor south of italy and they won two titles while he was their third one. They let slip away at the end. Still rather murky circumstances and he's the guy who changed all that he changed the inevitability of history. I think in the eyes of the united a lot of people and that's why he resonated so much she loved certainly enables but i think beyond that he loved being anti-establishment he loves speaking his mind. And i'll tell you what. Then i throughout his life you know. He had highs and lows he made enemies and then at times but in the end in the last fifteen twenty years whether whether it was pillay whether it was peter shilton he he came back and he made up with with a lot of the people he he fell out with and i was struck by something i read. I read somebody posted an interview. He gave back Back is a nineteen year old where he talked about how we talk about. Favorite actor was right on which i found kind of random but he talked about what is greatest trait was and he said i wanna be friends with my enemies and and i think in many ways that is how much of the world from a distance viewed him as as somebody who had the good fortune before he passed to go back and and and really rebuild all the bridges and all the relationships and and really leave us on on good terms with good terms with with very much. Everybody out there ricky. Take us through your point of view with regards to how you will remember him. Remember him of one of the greatest ever on the feel and also a personality so strong and controversial of it. Not many great athletes have done that that to be so much in spotlight for his entire life since since he was about seven eight years old when in argentina they started talking about him he used to play for the us and the red star is today's roca. Were people will gather out of nowhere. Because they knew there was a new kid that was unreal and this was way before cable internet and social media and he did all that before those times. Which is just incredible. He was just different than everybody else and that will remember him. Also as a great great captain whether you love or you hate him. He loved that. Argentinian jersey. More than anything in more than anybody. He was a great leader. He would push to the end. And that's why how he won a world cup. That's how we made it to the final and the second world cup. He played injured with his right leg in really bad shape his ankle and really bad shape. If you look at through the years he started at the age of sixteen Playing in first division and he never stopped. I think he could've played ten more years if he would've taken care of himself. I also remember him for that for not being able to really take care of his body and his mind. It just went over his heading. Never control himself. He went into politics and a lot of people hating him for that but he always spoke his mind. He didn't care. What where when and all. These things for maradona are just different. From almost every other athlete maybe with except mohammed ali that in and out of a field or boxing ring he just kept being on the front page of every paper and every newspaper that was ever printed. It's just unbelievable coming from argentina that i was listening to be there. You know you think of italian soccer in the eighties. I think he was one of the first ones who made people around the world. Want to watch league. Like the italian league just because maradona was playing he. He won napoli twice where they could have. Never even come closer to that. And i've been there many many times and it's just unreal today yesterday and thirty years ago for every day you can buy and maradona shirt. A lot easier than you canning. Senior member things ham seek e way. Anybody that played after him. It's just incredible. What those people thought and loved about the madonna to go back to you. What ricky said about. you know. it could've played longer. Potentially i looked after these body a little bit longer and his main but then the game didn't look after the maradona's back in those days and for louis people the younger generation watch lino massi. Do all these things and they are great. And i'm not taking that away. But he was doing that on. ploughed fields. right with pitches where the ball would. Something's wouldn't even bums are bubbled hard to control with defenders who were some of the roughest toughest one and literally wanted to snap them. It's not please legs. Because that was the only way to stop him and he had to deal with that every time we went on the field and still perform and some of the most wonderful and great goals. That will ever see you can imagine ho has body with the bean. At the end of a game ho the game was played and refereed and the eighty s is a complete contrast to the modern game and rightly so the way the current players are protected. He did not have the did not have that luxury and yet were still able to do that. Which is quite amazing. We'll say thank you very much to rookie for joining us Of course we just say out pouring of support. And this is what i had to say on twitter. What's sad news. I lost a great friend and the world lost a legend. There is still much to be said but for now make god give strength to family members. One day. I hope we can play pool together in the sky. Welcome to the show. Now someone who knew exactly what it was like to go. Head to head with maradonna international level in a world cup final and obviously on domestic level clinton's men into milan. When diego maradonna was. That is very best for napoli again. Thank you very much for your time. Just your initial reaction about very very very said moment. I think full entire world of football On monday madonna was Was an absolute exception. He was Probably for to take decades. You know the late eighties to the nineties. The most most Amazing play on the planet. He was a A genius he was i. I called him always artist. There's there's they did degrade football player. And then there's maybe one artist and diego maradona's was an artist. He what he did on the field full of creativity full of unbelievable to take knee was just an her off. And i had the pleasure to play many times against him with club team if it was stood guard and you if a cup final was germany world cup finally if it was Into milan the two games against napoli. And you just simple simply admire this guy and to have him. Passover early just sixty sixty years of age is a very very sad to pull unfortunately reality. You can just take us back to to that time. And just how big walls he while he was on his own level in. Oh they were great players obviously in the late eighties. Early nineties in italy Lauder mateos was one of the best players in the world goalie from boston. Right cut curriculum. Ow before i was maybe blood was was was unbelievable. Great players but he was an another level. He was just someone that that always made the difference and figured things out on the field that nobody else could figure out so you could men mock him. You could mock him his own older. You had no no idea how to mock him because he was just so gifted and so there was so much admiration for him and and outside the field he was just a simple very Normal person in a lot of people thought momma donna. All his Issues then drugs and other things. Li laid on was a very complicated person. He was not. Diego was a very down to earth. Very normal guy that just wanted to be with his friends with his families and What he has brought to argentina you will never forget that in what he brought to his especially to is not believer son of naples That people will never forget that. So imagine today You know how people morning in argentina and in napoli in italy and around the world is just a just a very sad moment. you're what was it like the reaction from the crowds when you were up against napoli and maradona's was on the board. I imagine just that sense of expectation must've being palpable even as a player. Yeah i mean i've been. I heard the news i was. I was really shocked as money. And and i posted something on my twitter side and i rarely actually post things but by posted something that i always thought about. Diego was his warmup routine depending on the music in the stadium started to do his routine with jogging and the ball around and that was made him. I think it has seven million hits by now. Life is live music. Dead really is jay. Go on monday madonna. He just wanted to be in rhythm himself if the music with the game and when you watch him then doing his walmart you you phase him actually as an opponent and you kind of have lost the game because you gave him so much respect you give him so much and because he was such a fantastic football player that your and that kind of transfer to the to the to fans in the stadium you know the even away games for him became home games because the people just wanted to see him. You know if you played in milan in front of eighty five thousand which is kind of standing up giving him standing ovations even if you may be lost a game or other games so so he was just a. It was a sustained unique over almost twenty years. And i always put him on the same pay leeann fronts. Bacon bala prior to madonna and then obviously came the next generations with Mac in our analogy. But but donna izzo in his own way. I simply unique. You mentioned the next generation yorgen and a lot of people may be seen. Maradonna play live the younger generation who are watching. Just talk about the fact that was. That was the protection. Was that from the referees. That maybe have now and you're playing on very different surfaces as well well in in in his days Obviously the fields were not good. The reveries didn't give you any protection. Ended defenders has killers. You know they just ditch us. I don't know how many follows a game run on madonna. Try to stop him all over two three defenders at the same time when all over him and he's still find solutions he's still found found a way out in score and scott incredible goals then so he took a lot a lot of hits And obviously his fame than along side in the spotlight living. The spotlight was not really his his wish. His wish was to be a normal guy playing his game. Making the difference on the field off the field he just wanted to be with friends and family but what he what he achieved because of those circumstances doing his playing days is almost impossible to achieve the interest thing as i saw clip from an of. You're on sky sports in the uk from a couple of weeks ago and it was moretz. You'll portrait was on former tottenham manager of course former argentine international news talking and they were talking about maradona. And he said we know we have all these stories about the off-the-field antics of recent years and even when he was playing but behind the scenes privately when he was with you or with. These teammates. Away from the glare of the media. He was a really genuinely warm individuals that wanted to help people the rest of as all a big story true for the newspapers but it was interesting portrait. He spoke so long layover in another thing. I think about because it's a different era to me but playing against the likes of the brazilian ronaldo the world cup and france ninety eight and seen what he can do with three or four plans around. You thought you had time in the corner on the over sudden four people and he was getting strike goal and we know how good he was. Brilliant for the hair would have been laid to play against off. That's where it was like playing against a great player. Light renowned on the other thing was empty before my oktay jokes. Gian-franco franco zola. He was going to be the air at one point. I believe to diego maradona napoli. No zola was a majestic player. But can you imagine having the way and your shoulders of go in there and potentially replace the quality of maradona. so it's unfathomable. Anybody can do that. But but no yet i think everybody of have over the piece of just we know there's lots of stories. We notice milan. But this was really apart from great. Football was a really genuinely warm guy. Last point again you do fail. That will never be anyone like diego maradonna again. I don't think so. Because i think diego maradona was was so unique because the way he emotionally connected with the people of his people and weren't as iowa's in argentina his people in napoli was so deep it was so warm and it was so i- amazing to see i traveled to and obviously go down to two zero so badly wanted to watch book. Juniors weevil played one eight. My life was when my list. And i walked through. Borka the the area around the stadium and almost every second house wall was a was a painting a tribute to jingle maradonna. I mean it's just what he left there with the people they were one they just just melted into each other and the same. He did in napoli for for napoli august. This is a today is very very sad. Sad day because this is this is her almost lifetime hero. I mean throughout generations. You know what he brought to napoli brought to the city of napoli brought hope he brought a smile. He brought excitement. He gave them pride pride. Because you know those years when he joined napoli was a big big Have kind of a disconnection between the south and off in italy and and he wanted to give these people real a real jojoba real pride. And that's what he did through the game of football. He used the tool of football to to bring these people up and and give them give them a quality of life to give them so much more than just his goals on the field. And that's what you see him. That's why i think devil be not a second minor donna coming up anywhere in the world he was. He wasn't one time off like michelangelo or fun. Goal or all these famous autists. He's he's one of them. You can kinsman. Thank very much sheriff supposed to be an outpouring around the world on social media messy writing a very sad day for all argentines and football. He leaves us but does not leave. Because diego is eternal. I'd take all the beautiful moments linked with him and wanted to take the opportunity to send him condolences to all his friends and family. Alrighty

They would be first had they won either of their home matches in which they dominated but drop point the one one draw against Newcastle that is taught me didn't get anything in the paper straight to the office with three points out of this one terminated procedures and the three three calculation at the hands of West Henry three weeks later Chris well again, Take it away by wings. Original head Sensational for The Sensational doing terrible taking points away with us. That's just crazy wanted in the first quarter. Now, they've lost it in the last ten minutes the Western bench of absolutely the same thing. They could have woken up in mid-table yesterday morning had Harry Kane not clear Jane Krakowski header off the line and Mondays one zero win over firmly such as a fine margins at this stage of the season the state wage Tottenham one and can smoke outdoors and an interview with Sky Sports of doing something special this season. I think it was just a stage where we've we've been so close for so many years. Now a lot of us have been together for four or five years. I think the additions this decision have been great just have around the change room on the training pitch just more leaders in the team. And yeah, we just all getting a bit more experience and we know with the team we've got and the players we've got we We can do something special. So just that took governess. Just making sure every game like when you come to places like this you're fighting for for every point every result with no really a couple couple of points slip last minute goals and off. Obviously, the West Ham game was a disappointment but it's a bounce back and get grind these results out. These are the ones that count coming into the season. So yeah, we just got disabilities. Okay. So cavernous cuz it's going to be a long long as was reflected a growing sense that Tottenham should at least be in the conversation when assessing who could win the Premier League title following the interview with Kane Gary Neville said he expect this first to finish in the top four, but that he didn't think they had enough to tie. Those are they can win the league I really don't but I think because Josie Marino's that there'll be an element of him thinking he can do the unthinkable and they have got some unbelievable attacking players and it is a strange season, but that don't think they can win the league just purely because they haven't done before at that game tonight could have sworn off. Wake, you know burn the credit score that from that corner in another week and we've been in a situation there has been talk about two feet. But I think that it was finished third would be unbelievable. So ahead of you know asked all mention a sofa top them. I never thought they would be in that position. So for me, I didn't have talking to my top four oil that you did at the start the season when now including them within our top floor, so that's a massive shift of where we've been out only four of you represent a consensus of the spirit a good team, but one lacking the required quality or consistency to match Manchester City and Liverpool over scratch beneath the surface and there are Hallmark of a title-winning team. They have the credentials to push for a top spot or are we getting carried away after a good result from first-past-the-post? I remember Muhammad and in this episode will look at what Tottenham need to do to become tide chut pictures. Trying to set up a restaurant and lounge and were you thinking.

GonNa sit deep rather than Satnam so low. It's been a great turn around. You have to give Sasha credit because when loss of Burnley about six or seven weeks we saw. This comedy was real impressionable. The silent offenders is being exceptional a lot of understand why they sign him at the beginning of January the end of January still the government the end. But you know I think right now. United probably favorites together full spot because there in fall but I just think the caveat that they have to stop beating the teams in the lower half of the table and how often enough. That's interesting you mention that taught full race. The bookies disagree with you. They've got Chelsea favorites. Eleven eight on united seven to four. What do you think.

Reality of ECON really come back and prove the doubters wrong but the more or less than two Morrissey sides came think it's getting followed full name. The conversation of the top four five. It's very difficult to put an argument at the moment. From what we've seen from Spurs as to why they should be leading the conversation because Manchester United is of course has made the difference because that's made difference. Allston WAS WELL JEFF. Difficult to be Chelsea. Of course are ahead of everyone at the moment spurs a very much. Low down on that list on there. Because what have you seen to inspire you to think?

He got the biggest deflections deflect. Tonight you ever wanted near dire situation. Well let's talk about the dire situation. Just put it in context with us here in the studio we will just bow to recall the show..

"Welcome into lace addition of ESPN AFC. On Dan Thomas Join Craig Burley and Allie Moreno gets caught. He'll be with US shortly to talk about extraordinary incident involving Eric dire at the end of the spurs game in a moment. But we'll start with actually what happened on the pitch remember. Fifth round of the FA Cup Tottenham hosting notting North City. Thirty minutes into this one for Tongan with the opener for Spurs so. Make it one nil. It's not enough chances. And in the end they would take it in the seventy eighth minute born unable to keep hold of a shot damage there to make it one one that would take us to penalties after extra time. Tim Cruel very much. They hero on the night he would save. Get some Fernandes's late penalty. Meaning that Norwich advance. The next round. Three two on spot kicks for defeats in a row. Now overall for Josie Marino's side. This was the one lifeline. Maybe if he delivered some silverware shop the critics but again I feel like we're going down the same path when it comes to Marine Spurs. Not Good enough. He's made made some changes. So that the Norris to be fair made a couple of at least that at home against a team. Four points adrift of everyone in the Premier League at home again took a cat the backside for them to push a little bit towards the end before extra time but norris dominated much most of the normal time yeah again. So that's there's no other way. Pinter is is. The moment is a very negative picture and Craig's right and the fact that missiles spurs battering Norwich and maybe Norwich lucky again. Late equaliser deserve this. This was an evenly played match. That you would have thought okay. This are two teams in which there somewhere there or thereabouts. Close in the standings of the Premier League. That's not quite the case. When you look at Norwich to further the point is to Norris is a team that has allowed fifty one goals in the premier early. So there aren't exactly a team that defensively those a lot of things well just to put it in perspective. Fifty one goals means that they're the second worst team defensively to Austin villa in the premier league. And so if you're spurs this is the game to build confidence. Yeah this is the game in which you not the ball around. This is the game in which you create chances you create opportunities score goals you build momentum and you turn the corner and what has been a negative period up until this point but now now what do you do because if you were looking for this to be a positive sign and certainly was and it wasn't in the final result it wasn't the way you play. It wasn't in the chances created. It wasn't in the in the goals scored. And so what do you do what you do you turn to and say this is what we can hang on because we know that what we're doing worse at this point you don't know what you're doing works and you're looking at a guy sitting over there on the bench? Just well He. He's the guy that's going to lead us to title. That's what he's here and yet he's got a whole lot of questions to answer and I'm not sure that he's going to be able to. Gavitt was interesting listening to the addition of your podcast with Joel's you weren't pulling any punches. When it came to Josie Marine. You're in particular the point that he made about July first. Yeah you can understand where it comes from. But there's certain things that you really really shouldn't say when you come out a new say well July first what he means by this as you know. I can't wait for it. Because then we hit the big reset button and we can bring in new players and I inherited this team. These aren't my players and Ericsson Inver Tong and Danny rose and all this stuff and but the fact of the matter is what you will achieve on July first what you can achieve on July first in terms of transfer budget in terms of wages. That's going to be contingent on or partly contingent on whether you get into the Champions League. This year and Spurs were very well placed to certainly challenge Chelsea for that fourth spot. I mean they still are there not a million points behind so to go and Kinda give the impression which that quote does they. He's writing off the rest of the season and start from scratch next year. It just doesn't make any sense whatsoever. I more of an issue with that than I do going out the FA Cup. It is kind of a whatever situation from from his perspective but but advancing annexed around in Europe. Getting into the Champions League next year. That means more money and more money to spend to rebuild and got the team that you want so with you go pleasant it when we come in after a few weeks and you turn around and very publicly say got we for this season to finish the season. Still a heck of a lot to play for fell as stale as the Champions League. It's unlikely to where the plane particularly Leipzig. The frightened for toll concert taught for Champions League places because we don't always going home for a team had so much silk depleted for managed to go in and publicly say basically say. I don't think I can get the results needed with this group of players often. Every being probably Daniel Levy himself was probably on the board. That spoils probably hoping maybe had changed a little bit. It's another form of deflection. It's another former. Captain Deflect those another form of saying this. This doesn't stick on me. It has nothing as I inherited. It has nothing to do with me. Look I walked into here and there was a struggling team. Why do you want me to do? I can't tell the truth is is that his responsibility and his resume would suggest that he could come in to that same locker room. That same locker room made of players that went all the way to Champions League final a year ago and he would make a difference and people spurs fans would suggest yes. This changes are profile team. This changes who we are because this is a whole different broad broader view of how to do it went to do it and how to get the results that we need and yet what we have found is that there's been a step forward two steps back a step forward two steps back and every time there's a setback is everybody else. Except Yosemite in your. Who's to blame? And in his mind he'll come on and continue to have this rhetoric as if to say nothing to see here no problem. We're going to deflect it this way. We're going to deflect it that way and it's never going to reflect on me. He is without Cain his best player without Saunas. Well that only makes a difference not against Norwich. Yeah but I mean at the end of the day it's been the last four games has been coming for a while. There was a smoke and mirrors game against mindset. The home was the one year and really and truly is a is a main miracle ever happened apart from five to ten meant. We're still looking at experienced players here. You know we're looking site..

You got to get the job. Done unfortunately originally didn't happen now. They didn't qualify for the World Cup in Russia which is Ramey Sad. All obviously I think the bigger picture in this whole thing is how can you improve the region on its by itself meaningful Mexico Costa Rico for the United States. How could they possibly in a final four in the world come because yeah that should be the goal and especially for Mexico. which is completely soccer crazy driven but many had sustained of in that region? You're not gonNA reach those goals and I think that is now some questions that they have asked themselves you know. Are they going for the sake of making money or are they going for the sake of making the team the best team possible in order to finish up finish off in World Cup in in in the best for one day. You're telling me right now one of the main problems with the US soccer system is that they prioritize finances over sporting results while I would say so yeah I mean because if you are trying trying to figure out a way to play I would say the United States makes Costa Rica. There should play every Copa America possible all to learn from the South American teams every window that should be given for friendly games should be a window that playing European teams organ the top teams in South America but that might be not the financial kind of benefit to it you know when you travel to Italy or to Holland or Germany or England then playing a home game in in the United States if the I don't know of whatever revenues are coming in so at the end of the day.

Nobody would facilitate games to the smaller member. Nations nations is doing is not just making sure that every team has has games and support Medusa chill but they have meaningful competition so now everybody everybody else benefits from a US perspective just from that side it's GonNa Point isn't he has appointed him to the nations league but let's not pretend that the US hasn't benefited did by being the big fish in this pond the US hosting the Gould Cup every two years couple years ago.

US have had those opportunities. The governesses league is is really a year-old. US have been able to make their own calendars as they see fit and play against whatever opposition you won't say Nice. Chris is awesome. I'm just saying you know all of a sudden bloom the initials league because you do get a semi final but here's the thing shack and Ankara about the US and Mexican particularly if we leave Costa Rica to the cipher a second we pretend that this is a big rivalry and it is on the field and it's a sporting rivalry and yet off the field. It's a very symbiotic relationship because they both benefits of each other success if they both do well they both grow their revenue urban you because. Oh guess what we're going to have another. US Mexico game and that seems seems to happen every three or four months well here. We go another and WHO's making money was us. US Soccer is Mexico is if people pushing their agendas forward now that doesn't improve them but as long as they have control or conquer calf and they're the talk to routine concha then they must be sitting on top of the mountain. So why are we going with this. People are going to complain about. Are we really development. We really growing the players becoming what they need to become the program what they need what he needs to be. We're going to get to the fifth game from the Mexican perspective that may be older conversation that we're having down below but up top the people making the decisions nations that people that are seeing the money income into the federation you can continue to ways. You're talking about those sorts of things over here. We're fine. We're making money and we're moving forward. Were and why would we would we with that and the answer is if you want to get better you you make it different. Is it worth it enough to put that money aside those those people making the decisions obviously things to that point and I agree with you and where you can cause when Israel is I think some of the decisions that are made paraty is making making money talk over results. You know if you need that you need that level of competition in a more regular basis. I don't know what people within calling. Gabor rooms are going to vote but I don't think especially with the with the nation's league. The majority of the member nations would be against the cavs. Go be once every four. Oh yes and have it opposing psychosis to coop America that we you can go ahead and host the Rule Cup as much as you like. Maybe half as much money because there's no once every four years as opposed to a once every two on you also get to accept any invitations that come Tim's in terms of the Copa America you you get to have your cake and eat it but whether they do not timely tell because again money seems to be a proud if this is about the development of the American player on the develop Avella major league soccer and the development of league I make new Mexican player and so on and so forth and the growth of the region and go play the load is down in South America. Hey you you wanna make it a dance. You WanNa make it a real growth about you're going to play coma. VOL- qualifiers like a real qualifying campaign now whatever they do here if indeed this is what you WanNa do then okay then. Come and dance with the big boys and see how you like it. The problem is that they don't want any of that because that puts at risk their success success us if even if it is local success is their own success and it makes them money you could play Argentina Brazil franzen every week but showing you the players just aren't there for the US. No what's the other side of the moment that Seiko which is an all talk about is any coincidence as well that when the Bradleys and the outdoors came to the US or Canada as La's not exactly helped Martha's either doesn't because it's all real goals Toronto or playing well at Toronto flat trump billion defenders and then taken out on the national team and not play in particular well. It's not all their fault but the Clinton said at a time he says I need more guys planet talk level in Europe and of course who say well major league soccer major league soccer talkers insecurity because of the national manager talking about well he's he's has joined us to try and get the best or worst to get the best of the Ashtrays Knoxville team and by not over the longer term not just in his tenure was guy to remain abroad and play whether it be in Mexico whether that'd be inserted America or whether it be some of the bigger leagues in Europe but no most of the old ones that combat here because it was great for Mla and this is going to be good for the national team long term. I think if you look over the peace when when the stronger teams edit a good core of emily's players the really good guys in the spine of a team plan in the top leagues in Europe.

"Dr Pepper the official drink of Fans Ville grab some today welcome installation of Espn Down Thomas Troy Craig Burley Shack Ali Moreno Champions League very much dominates the conversation today and it will let it run. SEDILLO began discuss Real Madrid's awful to two. I'm joy against a club always but we start in London. Tottenham to volume unit seven finished especially winning in this game at one point all the way back in the twelve th minute sir can break getting four goals for the visitors absolute shambles the spurs worst home defeat ever if you exclude the institution which I think we will for that reason Craig. Where do we start. AH. I felt excellent. I don't play off to the great star shaped but then took control of the game. I'm more Super Clinic. The second half I mean brilliantly clinical managed the game fantastic will sign when the hot to counter when they played the right bowls over the top of the right time to play short when you need it to dominate the Medfield the game on particularly towards the end of the first half with thought played in a diamond shape lost switches. You play really hard to taught in the midfields are running from safety side and we're stretching them. Continue Plan Free Role was looked great again behind doffs guy so I thought they will payer yeah they gave up some some taught them particularly on unit would ex- from supposed point of view it just quickly the one thing that gets as me as as a as a flatness around the place at the moment they haven't kept one clean sheet against Crystal Palace since last April Milla but that was colchester as a flatness around the end. There's almost admits that some players don't WanNa be there. Could you could throw the manager into that but one of the things things are keep seeing and hearing thank you can have it both ways as when they have six ask get into the Champions League final is not know when they don't have success and and how about night is w Levy. You can't have it both ways. You can't put up portraits great whenever by night am seeing somebody I'm seeing guys on social media journalists and pundits saying well the posturings and I know he's tight-fisted. He's a deal maker and annoy drag down your Levy but here's the deal. We'll talk to him of still good players. You really really good players anti baby seven flatness food this as you're making but mistakes and tactics wrong. I have no problem with the push. ITUNA has been getting over over recent seasons especially when you consider the lack of spending on on how they continue to progress over the last four years continue to finish top four despite everybody else spending and then all of a sudden this shouldn't nearby spruced list of standards. You spend some money and and you know you're looking for the team to kick on it has been desperately poor throughout. Portugal you know has some questions answered and this is a team that lost Champions League semi final season as fighting a last season up against it's a by Munich team who didn't seem to have any answers against Liverpool and look at how differently both of these teams approach and and then splits defense and said not as much as they post game press conferences boundary just simply clinical but they will better and in a season where we've spoken a lot about teams possible ought to be back and to the detriment I thought by an executed to perfection shoes how it should be done clinical expecting goals making friends everywhere. Thank God Spurs win this game clinical is the point you Tina Craig us as well is. They're not gonna I mean just say it was just one of those days in which everything that by Munich had ended up in the back of the night and isn't maybe as bad as the school nine suggests. If you WANNA it'd be the most positive spurs fan in the whole wide world. Yes you can certainly go down that line if you want to. If you realistic then you have to us simple questions and simple questions of defending and simple principles no pressure on the ball. You still have a high line. That doesn't make sense because no pressure the ball means that the can't can can look up and see says you're gonNA remain the running behind everybody Bald Watson and he just times run. We'll put the ball over the top and it's GonNa every no pressure on the ball and you again have a high line and you have a guy in Sanatoria that continues to just pay attention to the ball and regardless of what's going on in behind and it's not only him because rose was doing the same thing down the left hand side and so you say okay well. Maybe we can sort it out with our centre-back. Maybe not because how in the goal by server there's GonNa be in the second half continues to back oh by God and doesn't show him one way or the other allows them. Thomas based up eighteen bucks. This is not defending and so there's there's a lot of things that you can point out in dispersing that it's not just is one of those days is that maybe maybe this guy's to some degree. They're finding it difficult to be confident in their own abilities to believe in whatever the managers putting out as a plan and perhaps there has stopped listening and if that's the case then it's I'd say far darker seen than we believe. The truth is that you look at what spurs were in the second half when they score four to. You're thinking well. Maybe maybe they get back to work. Hang on the panel okay all right maybe and and then it was Joe's capitulation. It was Joe's stop playing by Munich continue to knock the ball around eventually they they get three three more goals and then the last ten minutes of the game and the reaction or lack thereof is real referendum aspersers. Here is the real no question that you have to ask that at five two. It was like well it became six. It became seven and that's fine. It's not fine. The Sheffield Bucks were horrendous. Defensively I mean took in an elevator went. Most Bay Levski skill to get possible Tolan was was grit scale because awful defending and how did not have a good night but the chick fil box to experience bags to be caught soft and with the spending behind is quite scary. Really I mean I played. They're not opposition fully KNOXVILLE team quite a few times. It's not natural position. Even I could walk out. If Somebody's spinning in behind me I can't go and push on them because and Leo and I got a woman so go to speech and then I go to drag a midfielder across not gonNa try and DUB elope account pushing in there and then bring to the quickest players that by of goal quick spending behind Tope just basic basic defending on the other side of the coin the Russia to given up as well kings the Coleman hove are never give adult Noah so the scenario could have been wasp but listen you know the came came through Japanese league last year after star that is that is that new sign Safaa. That's going to be the same because they're not defending properly capitulating Olympia because with a two nil lead pretty much most of the games and given goes away given goals away almost every yes good to watch going forward that at a threat they got good players but as a structure defensively at the moment they're all over the parish. There's only one man can get fix some manager. I just want to talk about buying player in particular so great tweet saying that says McCaffrey has managed to upset also and Spurs fan very much also so reject performance but this isn't one offer him last year yeah yeah young man ask them and sometimes the young guys as we all know progress and mature at different times right science less than people often were working with him every day they conceal and either all the count turney relates didn't say it when he was online at West Brom Young Callum McManaman Muzo who's where he has no but what what we do know is he's phone these these these economic by Munich connects them for a while is fast easy and not just that he's not just doing it with buying with Germany any Germany. Is We always doing on the international front is doing on the club front and they made a conscious decision by Munich. The older guys are going. I enrolled in Frank Rebury the old guard we're going with the younger guys that tried to buy Hudson Doi last year Israel to beef up the tune of gotland the moment spectacular but especially Ashley can operate these finishing and of course we saw Craig finished as well from eleven who just say must be such a nice feeling the now if you ever have this as a striker eyelid of anything you hate will hit the back of that because not only that goal is called but the flip up in the build up as well. It's just a minute just exudes confidence everywhere and the moment of the goal. It's the first half is still one one. Levin those key with his back turned to go and he already has a picture us to wear. This ball is going to go. It doesn't happen by the accident just like you don't lose a game. Seven by accident spurs fans by the way it did. This happened by accident because we've got Guy Rover Lewandowski who can turn and he's already already has that corner and his I- he knows if I take this touch here even facing Mongo on the turn I can hit it. There is too and that's the difference between work class and pretenders tenders work class level and the team that pretends to be dead level and right now via Munich play like that whereas spurs is still finding themselves how much now a by communiqu putting themselves in a conversation go very far in this competition or all. We just saying come on it. Was the spurs side. Could can you play who you put up again. As I mentioned before these be beaten Champions League finalists after all but that kind of performance against the spurs whether whether this is a shadow of of their former selves or or not I think the performance as a team the performance individually from the likes of knob ry says that Ah this is a team this this is a team that can go very far especially when you see some of the Big Boys Continuing to stumble we all see we will see what happens when the year tunes but as of right now this is as good a performance as good team as we're seeing in the Champions League right now sorry and and can I tell you though that the finishes the second one is even more impressive the ball spinning away from him. He's been in away from goal well and and the touch that he takes on it. It's just it's just a different level and and again there is a difference in terms of the level of play here that was very evident and very clear and that's why buying Munich becomes yes candidate however we have waited from this sort of performance by Rove and those the latter stages of the competition and it hasn't happened happened so let's wait until we get their continuous an extremely important pawn chess piece for them now..
