"Right. It was akin to Manchester United beaten mindset to it. We talked about physical. It was kind of the alleged football that we came to expect, but that result was a surprise. This event aside Frank, it's just that you can just see at the moment just void of any sort of confidence. Yeah, that's all fool. You know, when you see Juventus in the history of Juventus, I don't know, because the talent is there. The players that you see on the sheet is a good is a good lineup. But I don't know. It's like it don't play together, some of them don't like to be completely you know on the field, interested by the end of the game. We barely so kids are today. One of the maybe the most anti players at front are during the Euro we saw, it was completely invisible. And some others and they make some big mistakes like makini for the last game. So they have to go back to what they know. You know, working hard like they used to do with killing with bonucci and some others. You know, working as a team, although I think they're going to be very disappointed with the season. I mean, it's not every day you win against a very, very rightly that you don't win against Juventus every day for Neil. It's almost impossible to win against you when dysphonia. So there is a big concern. They have to react, otherwise is going to be a catastrophe. You have to question marks allegory and gone back there. You know, this is a club now who really have no direction. Zero. And we can talk. I mean, yeah, I'm not considering the finances and the fact that they've embarrassed themselves with the Super League and continue to do so. I understand all that. But even when you haven't got finances, you need to have a direction you want to go. They've gone by to your leg or he's the money wanted to get rid of, even though they had some success because this deal effort were wasn't great. They went to Sari in any way to pay law as an experiment didn't work. And now they've gone back to their main event will not have been great again. But none of it's really working and do your event is in the supporters and the club even want success and the manner in which they may get it with a football that is horrible, not very pleasing on the eye. They don't really have any clear identity of what they want, even after budgets have been slashed considerably. They could still have gone down a different path to saying, oh, let's just go back to the trade and trusted and be hard to beat again and see if we can be successful in Italy. But that's not very ambitious. But to that point, your vendors budgets have been slashed compared to maybe some of the others in Europe. In terms of Syria, they are still the big dose. They are still favorites in every single every single time they step onto the park. I agree with Craig and that bring them back allegri has offered this kind of forced door. And he showed on the weekend, beat Lazio to nail and there's a whole lot of celebration about the result, tried to try to dismiss the performance. But you could see that this is a Juventus team, even despite that good result. That just really lack any kind of real creativity. Any real spark. And then you turn around despite the confidence you get from that result. And this is what you get against one of Europe's big boys. And that for me is kind of a damning indictment against Juventus and even further. Maybe so against Italian football. Next up for Chelsea, of course, it is Manchester United. This weekend extra time as always.

"The wrong? And Frank laver join us. I want to start with you, though, Craig. Well, you don't want to just wait it, then, you know, so scar might have seen this out. A Winslow win. Wins a win, but this is exactly as they won under social you feel. Well, you're not going to get change in particularly not if you keep the same coaching staff and basically hein Michael Carrick, the job shot term. Not much is going to change, even if you change managers at this stage, not a lot is going to change in two or three days. It was a very soul sky race performance. It was embarrassing for a lover, really, they never got a kick, the fact they had Ronaldo on the left a little bit. That didn't last for long because he's not going to chase bikes. So he shunted martial out to the other side. He was the runaround in medfield again. The only upside was aid that struggles in the high struggle, and Spain and laliga mid table that a little bit lately up front. The play some good stuff, but it couldn't see united off and fairness to the united when they made the changes. They looked a bit better. And then they were given a gift, which is kind of the whole soul sky era was poor performance and a gift came along. They took it and got themselves out of trouble. That's kind of how this game panda before the jardin central second goal that killed it off. So it's a win for Michael Carter, but I tell you what, if I'm in the Champions League and I'm going to the grip stages and kind of hoping I get man united from one of the better teams because they're not a good sign. And that's not tongue. We're talking about Chelsea a little bit later on. And it's complete night and day shack. And what was interesting, obviously, van der beek came in Marcial came in Bruno dropped to the bench and we were talking duals eventually yesterday like this new manager bounce. Maybe there will be some sort of reaction. There was no reaction. I thought there was a little bit more energy, particularly through midfield, seeing.

"You would assume, so yeah. Jules this group may be flying under the radar, but this is going down to the wire. As we've been saying, very exciting for the remaining two games between severe allele walls and Salzburg, two wins in tuna for car felt Gregor by men to make it to one. I thought he was very entertaining the way they played. And wolf work with the bag three now seems to have a bit of an edge compared to what it was before with our friend Marvin bummer. So very interesting to see the remaining two games in that group. A federal prosecutor in Switzerland has indicted former FIFA president sep blatter and former UFO president patini gab. What does this mean and why is it taking so long? Okay, I'll take the waters of me. There is a whole backstory to this. I don't want to bore people too much, but basically in 20 11, a lot of people assume that Michel platini was in the present UEFA, would run against sep blatter for the FIFA presidency. Already rumors of lots of other people didn't like him, blah, blah, blah. And then he decides not to run. I was at the press conference when he said, you know, there were this great line, which was something like there were more people who wanted me to stay at UEFA, didn't want me to go to seat. So something like that, right? Then later, it emerges that around that time FIFA authorized a big payment. I think it was a it was definitely around $3 million to platini. And the way they justified it was, oh, this is a payment for work that you needed back in 1998 ahead of the World Cup in France for FIFA. Nothing to do with the fact that it's being paid now that you're deciding not to run. Obviously that rates if you are, but you need to always maintain his innocence innocence. Seriously, the timing, not a good look. And this is kind of one of the things that set the wheels in motion this and the Don reds at Don raids in Zürich. The thing is so the open air the open investigation into blatter for what they call a disloyal payment. And then they later open an investigation into Michel platini. This is 5 years ago. It's crazy that you can be under investigation. For so long without bringing charges. I find bear in mind in the meantime, obviously, both bathroom, platini, were banned by FIFA and so on. I don't know. I have a little bit of sympathy, actually, because I don't think in any legal system, I don't think you should be you should be told you're on investigation. Yeah. And then you go 6 years. So if I had to guess and this is purely speculation, I think the reason it's taken so long. And they'll give other reasons like the prosecutor changed for years ago, and it was blacklisted final interview. He had to miss that because he was unwell at the time or whatever. I wonder if maybe there are other people who could be part of this mask, maybe part of this negotiation if it did happen, who they were seeing if they could either flip or get information on it. Maybe. No, I don't think it's infantino, simple because he was in a totally separate role at the time. Obviously, he was at UEFA. I don't want to name names. I want to get in trouble, but there are certain people who played a big role in the scandal that brought down FIFA and who are still in and around the game. Let's just leave it there. Yeah. Sporting destroy bishop does for an ill Jules, Ruben a marine won't go quietly into that good night. Nor should he? They were so good gap. Attending to watch again, they will hit the limit at some point against a much bigger team and basically that's a no very good especially when they are without pioneers and betray and Vida and all of that. But this sporting team was great Pedro con carves was fantastic. Paulina boulin scored a Gregor miss two big chances, but it's called a really nice go to. It was one of my games on BT sport on the go show, and I really love watching them. It was good. They're very open because the play is so much stacking football. But really, really good to work. So I hope they make it to you wanna see Dorian knocked out. 'cause I think they deserve to continue in Europe. I think they're short of being in the Europa League at this point. I mean to me, that's right. Obviously, we think early Holland will be back, but who knows? It might be bad for me. I did 6 months. Turning off for my day 5. So yeah. I began. This is going to be absolutely huge. There's going to be huge. Big are reporting that Leipzig are trying to recruit Liverpool director football Michael Edwards, who is leaving the club at the end of the scene, which we know, gap, does this make sense to you? You know what? I find this as an underreported story. So I don't know about the Leipzig thing. I don't know Michael Edwards personally. I've only met the guy twice, I think, very, very briefly. But the guy who's really credited as being the architect of being able to marry the analytics with a lot of the good work, Liverpool have done in the transfers. I looked at Liverpool's net spend incidentally over the last 5 years or recent club has been there. And it's one of the lowest in the big 6. I think spurs might be lower or but very, very close. So this is tremendous. And he's leaving now at a time when they still have all those contracts left. So they've extended some of them, but obviously you still have Salah and player of mining player for me on pay. I don't know why he's leaving. I like the idea. He's still a relatively young guy. I think he's in his early 40s. How cool is it, if he says, all right, I want to go to the Red Bull organization because I really admire what they do, what they work, the way they work. Seems crazy to me that you would leave a club like Liverpool, which I'm not a small club, right? And you go over there to people who are the club that's definitely smaller, but which is really blazed the trail in the way they work. Again, I don't know if there's stories to build normally pretty good about this about sourcing it. I'm fascinated. More than the Real Madrid, for example. Because I think he will have big clubs too. So it will be down to him to choose either you go to the big big club where you will have a bigger budget and you might have more freedom to do what you want, et cetera. I think you would around Madrid. No, no, but I'm saying before to take an example of a big club. Or you go to a club like lab sake that is built differently that sees a transfer window in different way, not the same budget. Not the same money for wedges either, maybe more younger player orientated. I don't know what's the most exciting or where he feels that he's qualities would be would fit the best. But that's what's so interesting about it. Yeah, here's a guy who's at the top or close to the top as you can be. Who decides I'm gonna go and improve myself personally and professionally by and again he hasn't gone to life together. It may not happen, right? But the fact that he's even considering it because the only reason I'm saying that to you is because I think of permission, who, in a way, is very similar to Michael Edwards. They work differently. But, you know, like, young and bright ideas, English, et cetera, who was in the RB group and decided to go to Monaco where they see transfers in a very different way. It's a different ownership. It's a different club. And I think he wants to tell people where he was before. He was autonomy for that. He was at Southampton. Yeah. So he was seen as this bright juicy. So that's why I'm wondering what kind of path a Michaelis was going to go now. What I would say about Mitchell and I believe actually pregnant if I'm wrong, but I think actually he moved from Southampton to Tottenham before Tottenham even signed a long before he was recruited by Frank Cobain when he was still a Tottenham. I don't think his departure from Tottenham was entirely down to him. And also Tottenham, of course, hadn't achieved when he left..

"Chelsea go minimalist to win a malmo one year last question makes his return and miss big chance right there and I think it was upside anyway, but my thoughts are there's nothing you can do against mom or tried to even get super motivated with this. I think the good thing is Hudson adore and politics show that a certain Hudson and Dorian Zia showed that they can play show that their alternatives. Kyle hovers at center forward, I think that's still a very long, slow burn. It's weird to me to think you're in a situation right now where Lukaku wasn't there last year is absolutely essential this year. But for those other positions, he's got tons of options, which we know he had. Kareem Benzema scores the 1000th European goal for Real Madrid. Oh, what a coincidence. Who would have thought this? As they be checked out two one, Jules, they're gonna go through, but this is a bit closer than it should have been, yeah. Very much so that he puts the nil nail and it's got a really, really good goal to make it one one after Benzema's opener. Which came from a big mistake by model and finishes an et cetera and I think watching the game is certainly look like the crowd was booing Rama Madrid. I mean, their own fans. And this was a strong Real Madrid. And Benjamin, the very good second goal with Venice and Casimir, but yeah, far from convincing from colletto has some work to do. We say it because we love. Yeah. Tottenham have their new manager and need something you can't take, you wrote the whole column about this. Yeah, well, she's not on Monday. I said, why this would make zero sense. And I think this is different. The parallel eye draw was Euro 2016 when after leaving uve in 20 13, I guess he left he left you. He decides to go and he takes literally 2014 he takes a job from team. Worst Italy squad in history. I mean, go back. This is the Jacqueline Zaza. Squad. Only decide to take it. And he works with what he has. He can't buy anybody, and he goes, and he makes them better and they do really, really well at the Europe. I think you've used it like this, because if this was a project, if there were if there were promises of massive investment or whatever, then he wouldn't have signed in 18 months deal. Then it would be a longer deal. It would be more guarantees. I think he wants to go in, that you'd like some of the players there. They will bring some guys in in January. But he says, first and foremost, I'm going to make these guys better when you're turning dumb belly back into what he was. I'm going to turn Kane back into what he said. Back into what he was not sure. Ryan session. Oh my God. He's still there. He's injured. And I'm going to push for top four this season, maybe get some money in the next season. We push further. And then we see where we are, right? That's fine. Maybe the money will turn out. Maybe Joe Louis will decide, hey, how did my 80s? I can't take all this money with me. Why do I put something to the club? Who's the best guy they could have got? I think this is the best way of putting it. There was no one right now they could have going. And got as a club in a situation that they are now better than content. I've been critical about him in the past because of the way he just walks out when people start spending money the way he views everything as a personal battle. But I have to tip my hat to him in this case, because he's putting he's putting his reputation back on the line. He's putting, you know, he's putting himself back out there. And he could easily wait around for another for another big job where he knew he was going to get money. So kudos to you for that part. Manchester City warm up nicely for the dog this weekend with a four one win over Bruges, Jules, no debridement, no problem. It's not really British came back with a freakish ongo bhajans while the first, the nose of John stone. Dry concealer in that game had three assists. Which is already amazing. Out of the four courses involved in pretty much everything he created 8 big chances. I'm going to say this again. Draw consular as a right footed left. So it's not even really the best position you can play. Created 8 chances in the Champions League game, which are amazing. What I play is and you're right, they want me nicely, bring on the Dobby, I guess, and Pepe says this is the best Manchester City team, the weather play that is hard since arriving at the club. So we have to believe in. I quickly ranked the top three top three at the position. Cancelo hakimi. Happy birthday, my friend. With Milan, which means only our arithmetic is keeping Ibrahimovic in the Champions League. They need a miracle to go through Gabrielle says they don't deserve to go through if they don't win games like this. They were supportive. They started poorly, big mistake, claiming to be a big mix up with Bennett and Calabria, which acted as the goals or chasing the whole game, portal played well, Porto deserved to beat them the first time around as well. They're still in it. Arithmetically, but it is pretty far fetched that they go through. If you're purely make the best of it, and you focus on Sita and the fact that you're still growing. I ask it again, meeting up an injury riddled Bruce a Dortmund three one. Joe's, this is exceptional, even for iex, much love. You know, three little birds all that stuff, but would it have been a different story without that weird Matt hommes red car? It was certainly very even before that red car garb, which if you haven't seen it, hammers goes for the taco, okay, the stones first, but it doesn't touch antoni Antony gems gems. And then lands on the leg of Andy gets the ball, too. Yeah, yeah. And Antonio just then rolls around on the floor and my colleague gives the red cards after watching it on VR..

"Was clearly frustrated by the defeat. I don't know. I mean, obviously, when he suspended his understands, he can't shake hands. That's why he's happy to be in the stands. You can charge as much as you want, gesticulate, doesn't have to shake anybody's hands. I don't know. I find that odd really odors don't want to shake people's hand after the game. It is hard. It got me thinking about sort of the rituals like before the game and all the way back to the John Terry, Wayne bridge situation. You know? Some people saying, oh, why bother shaking hands before the game? It's after the game. I mean, I think these are all norms and conventions that we have in football in general in society. It's kind of like, okay, you grew up in Paris, right? Yeah. So you're a big city. I'm assuming in Paris and I am digressing here. Apologies. In Paris, when you walk down the street, people come in the other direction and you don't not and say hello to them if you don't know them, right? No. However, when you're in the countryside in some small village in Provence or whatever. And there's nobody in the village and you're walking along and you see the guy coming outside of the big capital. Okay, Paris has a bit of special cases. People really are not nice unless you're Parisian. But no, but you know what I'm saying? There is a convention for a place. And in football, this is generally part of the convention. When the game is over, you don't disappear down the top now. And people notice. And I think charlo knows that. So I don't know if it was, look, Charlotte can do whatever he wants. Right, clearly. But I thought it was big of cop. And another word on club before the game kleps spoke of Josh cavallo, the Adelaide United player who obviously came out publicly. We believe he's the first active male footballer to come out so publicly while still playing. Was it in Rogers? King Robbie Rogers had retired and then he came back. Stupid thing to debate. I think it was Glenn Hussein's son as well, but whatever, right? But I always talk about one thing about the fact that klop said like I've been in the game 30 years and people never asked me if I'm heterosexual. I presumably is where he isn't, but it's talking about that, and he said and hopefully there'll be a time when Josh doesn't have to go and announce it. It doesn't have to be a story, right? And I completely get where he's coming from. I think it's great that he's had this a level of support. Around the world. I say the game itself, when I look at Atlético this season earlier, I would have said, yeah, they have a strong chance at winning La Liga. They can do something in Europe because they're more multifaceted. Because when everybody's fit, this is, this is a really deep team with a lot of alternatives. And so this is not maybe the game, and we should judge them, because you've got savage out of our Kuzma now. You've got me out. You've got Lamar out, and you have Marcus Jordan. And obviously, they weren't all going to play, perhaps, but you would have had more options to adjust things. Yeah, it does feel though that they would be stuck in between two identities. Two style of play. And versatility is great, and you can play different, different style, of course. But I think because with Simone, everything is so defined, I think they're really caught in between okay, do we play really deep? Do we have more of the ball? What do we do? And I think at times against portal, they were very average in an individual against Milan. They should never win that game. Against Liverpool, maybe a draw is the fair result in the reverse picture. But certainly on Wednesday night, they don't deserve anything of that game. Okay, they played for an hour or a billion against 11, but still they were far, far inferior to Liverpool. And even in a Liga at times, we've seen them hot and cold and not really always knowing what to do with the ball and I just think this is a problem. And I don't know if the answer is, okay, just focus on one style or just try to make your team better a bit of everything. But I think it could be it could be difficult for them going forward. I think what's not what doesn't help is if you want to if you're the sort of team that likes having a ball likes taking the game to the opposition is very comfortable. That way, it's not just about having time to players. It's also about having chemistry. Having the right players around you who can develop those automatisms, I think we call it a more of those words. It doesn't exist in English. Well, because it's football and English people in football don't always really mix, right? But it's really difficult to do if one game plays other manjar Felix pays and careers. And the midfield too, right? Continually changing. I still believe in chola. I think if he gets, if he gets it right, if he gets the injured players back, I think they can make a strong run in not just in La Liga, but in the Champions League as well. As for Liverpool, I'm sure I've seen simi cas play before. I just don't remember. I was glad I got the season because Robertson was injured at the right. He did start the season. Alexander Arnold. Phenomenal. We criticized Atlético for not perhaps being aware of him, which again, hindsight's always 2020. But if I'm talking about where the balls are going to come, are going to come from, right? For the front three, where's your service going to come from? I know that there's no Jaguar. I know that for being here's only just come back. I know oxley Chamberlain who didn't do badly by no. He's in there, but he hasn't played much. And I know there's no Robertson. It's going to come from TA completely. That's why I was really surprised watching the game that there was not almost like an auntie TAA plan or something to just reduce his activity because I suspect that he prepared that again watching videos. He's got 5 assists in 11 games now. I think he's won every 140 minutes, which is crazy, which is by far his best ratio since he broke through the first team. I Liverpool even better than two years ago, three years ago. We have like 18 assists two years ago or something or three years ago. As his race. But he was already started better than any of those seasons. And yet, you don't put anything in place to make sure that it doesn't have that kind of impact on the team. And certainly not so early on the game, because once that God from Jota goes in, you know he's going to be even more difficult now for a clear. And I was just surprised. I love the fact that Jonathan knew exactly what the ball was coming. You know, he was just ready. He knew that trend would not control the ball. They would whip it the way he did. Straight away. And I think that's perfect. And the most trained that in practice that, you know, we say for all the basketball fans, the Steph Curry does a thousand shot every day. You know, between 500 and a thousand. I suspect in my head, that trend does 500 crossings every day training and just whips the bone with the more with the board between the goal and the cigar box. All the time like that because they're so precise. And so lethal, it's incredible. Now, I wonder about this because this is an old bug bear in mind, but he started out obviously as a central midfielder, right?.

"Be looking at that bike tools. It's a crazy PR Champions League week. So much going on until Champions League, not quite taught him. Not yet. Anyway, but we've got so many other things. Barcelona get a huge win. He continues saving united and so again, I'm lost for words. I'm lost of superlatives. We're gonna get into all that. But let's start at Anfield. Because they're coming off a game at the weekend where your Liverpool had surrendered a lead to Brighton. They had and I'm surprised I'm surprised more people aren't talking about this. In midfield, that was an injury crisis. That is an injury crisis. Curtis Jones, this black eye, so he can't play. They had to start Alex oxley, Chamberlain, who was really hasn't played very much at all in a long time, really isn't a central midfielder. They started fabinho, who's great, but just first getting back from injury, still a big call. They're paying an atletic team who admittedly have a ton of injuries themselves. And boom, 20 minutes, go up, never look back. Incredible similar start to be fair to the reverse picture two weeks ago where they started so well as well. The difference this time is that they kept the school. But it's just the board from Alexander Arnold and the first goal is magnificent. To the point I'm even surprised that athletic didn't have in the way they prepared for this game. Something or someone saying, okay, we can not let Alexander Arnold picking up a bit more central position in the last 30 yards. And picking the ball across the board that way. You would expect someone like Carrasco would just push up. Yeah, so I wanted about that, right? In that system in that three, four two one, that they were effectively playing with Correa and Jeff Felix. My guess is actually, they asked Carrasco to try the winger. Yeah. And you should have been whoever was on that side of Felix, probably. To go or possibly go to go and go and pick him up. Yeah. Because he's going to give him all that space. It's crazy. Yeah. And then he just kept going and going. They could have had a lot more opportunities. Only blight on the evening, obviously, femino coming on at halftime. Coming off, we'll find out more. Look to me like a muscular injury. Yeah, it doesn't club says we wanted to control the game and we controlled it well in the second half. Once I clicked it down to ten men and the Tony lead. And to lose femino when you wanted to slow the game down and just control it, it's really unfortunate. What I thought was interesting was about a collective approach. It's almost like a stereotype that while they're trying to be more expensive, they're not as good defensively. Clearly there were some defensive missing is a big loss. Equally those people who say, though, like, oh, the Atlético of all their Gritty their defensive that's kind of like, it's kind of like a 2018 called and they want you to try to go back. Because they haven't they're different. They try to play football. If I play effectively a front three plus the ball with cooking midfield, I'm not going to be able to defend in the same way. I will try to take the game more to the opposition, but still, you don't look comfortable doing that. No, we saw them really good against bettie's doing that. I guess maybe that was just too high away. I Liverpool against this Liverpool team that is so strong, you know, in the 5 pretty much the two books to box me feels and they're from trace and the full box as well, even if Robertson was not playing. So maybe that was a step too high for them to develop that kind of football. But also the red card for Felipe, which is a big, it's a big moment in the game. Even if you Liverpool, we're working on them. Once you get once you get sent off, and you know what, I'm happy he got sent off. One I hate those cynical fouls. And two, if the referee says to you, come here, like if you teach us, say, or if your dad said, come here, if you don't go you that is going to lose this chisel. It's safe for the referee. I would love to know. We're taping this Thursday morning. I want to take a deeper dive into see what the media said because what possible reason could there be for you not to walk over time? I know. It's crazy. Oh, if I ignore him, then he can't book me or he gets any offense. You can't see me, I can't hear him. And especially and this is another thing, which I think clubs don't think enough about. When you're playing at the referee is important. I know, but we used to say, all referees are the same way to the basket. No they're not. Some refreeze are very good, some refrigerator. Let's get some refreeze of certain personalities. You can win. A few years ago there was one club who for a while employed a former referee to help coach the players on how to approach this referee. I'm surprised more, don't do it. Because you know, with Danny Mac, not to be some crazy strict guys, a very good feeling. You know that is not the referee to do with which to do that. You know, because this is a referee with tons of personality. And if you get in his face, he'll get in yours in a very calm way, but he's not somebody who you're going to rattle completely. So Philippe's experience enough. You should know better. No question about it. Joe's, I want to talk a little bit about the two managers before we dive further into the two teams because obviously in the first leg. I think it's something we should address and get out of the way. Jenna of the game, there was a little bit of agro with because corp went and offered to shake Simon on his hand. And I didn't take it to me when I left. Afterwards, I give the usual words about where we totally respect each other. See my own and said, I don't, I'm paraphrasing here, Charlotte, don't get angry. He says, look, I think it's kind of an empty gesture. After games, I respect the other guy anyway. I'm not going to go through ritual. It's just something I don't do. And Klopp said, well, if he doesn't do it, I'm not going to make him look bad by walking around. Exactly. I try to show him. Where do you stand on the handshake? What's wrong with the handshake? Like, before and after the game, this is what this is what you do two tennis players do it before and after that everybody does it, why would chores Simone start to think, you know what? I'm different. I'm not gonna shake anybody's hands. Has I started to think this? Or has it always been like this? I can't remember, again, I'm not always. I don't know if it is against Pellegrini and Betty at the weekend or if he's happier when he wins and he's very happy to shake your hand if he's beating you more than if you want to get like the reverse picture at the Wanda where he.

"Liverpool's. Harvey elliott has come out to defend pascal stroke. The player who's challenge left him with a dislocated ankle. He says sorry about this pascal. I think it's wrong but it will soon blow over brother and you'll be back in no time smashing it again. Ki- positive that's because he's had a three much. And these are the games that homeless newcastle fulham in the car and west ham. It's it's nice to see him do that. But it's interesting to see isn't given the is from a hospital bed surgeries coming up but think he's trying to say it didn't mean to do it and he's defending him here leaders and i think like most other people that think neue both football saw the was a challenge. That was one that was going for the ball. Nothing to do with the mon- just mistakes and unfortunately for harvey earlier he komo on the wrong end of it. No the red cow again. I think is justified and the role safety red cow. This justified it as a three game. Bon no again. We all know that there was no intent there which is why the feeling of maybe threes too much but ended the day the fact that he has dislocated his ankle tells you the taco was a little reckless and it was wrong and so you have to go with regained. It's i think it's the best. Says to keep them with three games. But i think he's harvey halio as understood. It was no malice vulva. And that's why he's being nice about it. I don't know if those it's not been rescinded for this policy reasons. It stevie said know. Clearly i think most people know everybody is there was no. It was just a footballing incident but once the severity of the comes from the challenge then is deemed to be how some of a reckless nature. Then there's never never gone t- to to resend the appeal primarily because the oman desiccated these. And listen he's going to hopefully recover philly and you'll be rehabbing three-game bond and everybody moves on. And that's that's the occupational hazard that we've all played on the as these things can happen. So but no no hard feelings from the failed. I think he realizes that Stroke was not to try and made them you just to make a challenge has unfortunately it has ankle underneath has body. We was a horrible incident but but leads. We'll never go. I feel we'll never gonna win that one. Can you imagine yourself doing the same. If divider break saying nah. Don't worry to the other place tv back in the day. Don't think so. Maybe craig no no this one. Very classy move then from harvey elliott. Anyway maybe i'm just glad that you broken injured Yeah more primarily coming up. God just to get you on the final word on this did you make of heavy elliott coming out and saying this is a class act. I take you know you wanted to make it very clear that there was no malice in it in terms of going. What exactly happened. I live in in the uk where broadcasters decided that it was so horrifying that we wouldn't get to see a replay. So i only got to see it in in real time and it looked to me like it was really fortuitous unlucky. What happened with him. And you know what. Craig said about the severity of the foul being part of the reason why he gets the three-match ban i completely right. That's the way it works. I don't think it's the way it should work. I think in a perfect world. We should judge each incident on its own on. Its own merit. So i have a bit of sympathy for five and a lot of sympathy for for strike and and i think eliot is class. Act coming on saying that kind of not making challenges that it's no funds pundits. Everybody wants to see. We wanted to see unless one of the one of the things that supporters off the seesaw whether we like as a of aggression and sunday makes good. It's not just support supporters. Pay the money in the one. You see the passion. They want to see the commitment from players. It's their team. they tell not the. Don't tell people. Just say yeah. Yeah going want. They want to see that. See that desire gordon and playful the show and we can never take of the game but unfortunately west thought of both played in games of sinoe with Not as much as it used to come some nasty engineers to please no more protection. No than ever and rightly so. But you're never gonna take it completely out the game. And i think that's what the mind is saying. Hey listen i'm gonna move on but let's not forget. This is a contact sport that we play. I wouldn't play as a fly in speed. This is the kind of thing that can happen something. I mean you to give the players on the field because about ten minutes after this challenge. The what is the exact same challenge on saudi-omani over ila say to the field and nobody said award money ended up. Losing the ball and leads went away with a ball. Nobody said a boater and it was pretty much one hundred percent the same challenge. So i think we're going to give the credit on the field because it could have been very easy for liverpool plows to stop complaining and having a goal at frank. Can you imagine coming out in defence of a player who broke your leg. Well we'd go with a guy would be would be hard to forgive because even if it's like all the guy said it was a fair challenge. Felt you know angry about the fight that i got my main committee a broken. I think what you just said and just did. It's absolutely class. Act and hot off to the young guy no. I don't think i will forgiven anybody and would have been a race to go back and to come back on the field to get my revenge for sure dusty nasty. I don't you know. I thought frank is going to be all the romantic. Wanna say you know. I would have said so i just got a. He has. Yeah anyway we wish we as as this weekend. He of the fixtures. You've got to look forward to little action against crystal palace. Police on sunday by the two big ones west time against manchester united.

But let's not forget. I mean i don't know almost felt they suck that last year. This competition and focused on winning the telling inside that. I'm not saying but almost no gap craig. I really don't wanna make excuses for but last year. Yes they had some poor games against madrid but that last game again chocolate which which cost them a place in the next round. I think they had ninety nine shots on gold. I'm sort of rounding up here. They absolutely dominated i. It was one game where they were. I thought extremely schumi unlucky not to advance. There's other situations where they've been very very fortunate. Last year was not was not one of them in any way And i think it was after that that they decided to put all their eggs in a basket and and finishing bottom of group leading the way either so the story also because they need the money. They've dough question about. I'll tell you what though. I mean if you look at sheriff you know who would have had them beating the nets in the opener right so i think there's always there's often a lot more twists and turns but yes on paper around madrid inter are clear favorites in this group. This is there's no question. This is a enter because the both of these site sheriff in choctaw but the last couple of years it's been like europe has been away on the back when it's come to play games but certainly whole kind.

"Two of these three goals hockey's by position but decision making while the other will be purring about the six goals and often can be more angry upset about the analysis of the three goals lost in the way the load i'll eight six eight have struggled. Start this season in. The bundesliga lost some key players. Not just this had over the last couple of years and have a new manager who is under pressure and i think defensively. That just was not good enough. No it's it's the points and yet the acceptable create chances against almost every team but the one thing said he did certainly domestic last year. That didn't did not take i off the ball in terms of the defensive unit and i think he will not want not creeping back into the game because against teams then. The same thing will happen to them. The happened last june when this competition guy. Y'all thoughts. I'm on city. After that game. I agree with greg. In fact i was wondering pep. I think given that he's a perfectionist. You game as as used glass rather as half empty not half full you realize that. I know it's easy to just play. Mock gain. he certainly was part of the problem. I don't think we've had a great game either. It did look like they simply switched off the tuneup early. They're playing a live. Excite where jesse marsch made a bunch of changes after the byron game understandable And they're going in the pressing in the running around the problem as if you try to press city they have so much quality they can just pass the ball around you all day and they did that very effectively. They get to two bit fortuitous. They feel like they're in control and then they lose that call after the break after the mars penalty. And then you have these little situations where they were. Were leipzig keep scoring and i. It's not a situation you want to be in. If your city you want to be you want to be in control enjoy can score six. Because you've got so much more talent and your brilliant going forward and relation does that individual ron where turns out out but it's not. It's not the way i think. Pep would want them to play. Certainly not in europe especially with the leipzig have had. Tac's anyway some of these guys will be with me on sorry franco on. Yes i just want to go back to. What craig mentioned the fact that city and price you would go through the group stage and of course they will but i think it's important to finish first or second depending on if you're going to on the second game as well you know so losing two points for postage. I'm against bush. It's a it has to be considered because it's going to have an effective finishes second play the first gaming in a pug depressed and whoever would would be that's going to have a maybe an effect on their future so yes. We talked about that yet. They're going to go out in which position. That's the main important thing for me that we have to talk about important for you stevie to talk about. It's too early to say you know we. We've read after year. Somebody who comfortable in the group ends up getting bustle on them because they were sick in the group for example. So you don't know until the play themselves getting wanted to frying says you. Obviously you won't do it new group because that gives you a certain advantage but at the same you don't always going to happen and there are those unlucky and get a bustle on sir. Let's see if any of these guys can agree in extra-time later on today. We got craig stevie and frank.

"Said a wizard win three points. Think about the game is going to be a big game against you and the mentalities there. So i'm not a worried but i'm concerned about the offensive aspect of the game which i thought was resolved when i saw the i four premier league games but in champions league tonight i didn't see that critic susan it play which we play very very well today. Very well organized But i think chelsea apart in the fact that the that It was quite easy to to defend franken harsher critic. Oh well. I didn't always primarily watching the by minute game just looking at the result might open a great performance of one and kept a clean. Sheet thing is difficult to be too critical point. Is it not. It did feel a lot like the chelsea of last year. They had like two thirds possession. Only two shots on goal. I mean you need to be more dangerous stuff when you win again. We talked to mike. Xenon xenon has a chance equalize. Great chance equalized late in the game. They could have drop those points as united at a played in the modern in which they played one game with the months of three points. So i don't know so you guys were watching us more than me.

"Field. The difference is too big munich and barcelona. Should we maybe actually talk about the team. That won A little bit here frank As far as by unit goes. I mean we talk about city. We talk about chelsea. Ladas champions league favorites. They've got to be right there in the discussion. Certainly after how they look today of course of course they always been. I mean the team is is stephen stronger than last year. We sabat circa mingle mcconnell. I think some players. I laughed but i think the it was the right time for them. Maybe to leave but i think back to the race to win the champions league if if the left point but the complete everywhere thing i never seen davies strong as he is right up is and stopped oval levandowski still finding all everything perfect for him. Even done some teammates. He deposed away there to finish the job in the mid in the middle of the fog. This saw sauce and this insys that the back. So yes they did. They must be named contender and the title contender for the champions league. That's for sure. Greg who out to you today from buyer davis put mccollum. But it's hard to judge because he was playing against the way they played. Imagine a saying that. Just that it's that it's the judge because how they played against barcelona. Yeah we ever came. Has we ensure the honda. Big begging strong. Accountancy manuel neuer. Because he was. I go back to france point. I mean the eleven gulf ski has started this season again. With gordon is as is quite unbelievable to see the guy still that hunger to go and smash more records on the way reacted to that bowl. Post was just you know. We're talking about great goals but the reaction just a notch will strike still shop just to relax nice split-second and into the goal funds. You know what was crazy about living dusky. Today's that he's a couple of goals and to me. One of the most impressive things about eleven dusky was ninety second minute. They're winning three nothing. It's easiest comfortable as it can possibly be the ball pops out to the right hand. Side seems like he's going out of bounds and lewandowski from essential position. Sprints out to go get the bowl almost as if to say it's not enough. Let's go four. Let's go for five. And that's a mentality that you see from. Lebanon does really across the board from munich. That is the difference between what byron munich is. What they pretend to be what they're going to be this season and what barcelona all right now what we should realize. What the guys thanks. I think they're only gonna get better because let's not forget julie. Mun is only just a couple of months sudden there. So even he's still play because you see them day today and you get to know them even better and you get to know your squad even better and then he's building an understanding of just how everything's gonna work and all the pieces of the jigsaw and for him i think he's he's going to get better in terms of has team selection as we go forward speaking of getting better and better. One of the eagles comes off a rebound from ucla shot. You're this kid. Every time it's a greater and greater impact when we see him on the field and how many times we talk about dogs case just as you guys said. i mean. he's just hungry. He always wants the next one and he kind of teaches that to everyone around him. You know that there's always the next goal to go for this next moment to go for the next trophy to win. And that drives by a munich. They're hungry for trophies all year round and the way yeah supplemented their now mcconnell from from night sieg now sabotage from night seek saba was kind of filling in a little bit for tomas milian. There may be gets bit tired. And they're still going on like a young kid and still store scoring then see competition between knock brie and sunday and was yada for maybe two slots three players that are all three of them. Outstanding limonov goal-scoring machine. And then you have to midfielders in a seeks in a role with george who are me and leeann go got that out just going going nonstop and on a very very high aggression level that intimidates the opponents so all they did you know they have. Now a team of i would say fourteen fifteen sixteen stout us basically on same netherland. A top top dos level. And and it's gonna be. I mean it's going to be very difficult for any obviously for any german team to beat them in the bundesliga but then also for the the champions league teams to compete with them. But that wasn't a taste for biometric not today instead of training metro. Decide reality. that wasn't a taste so we really still will these teams at the guessing stages. How strong they going to be against the other teams we perceive are going to be facing all the end you know. Ps city love pro. Maybe one of the biggest teams event is a struggling a little bit the moment but that wasn't a test for that was that was a walk in the park. Seem very impressed by no well. I was impressed by.

"Bustle in that stage in la lita and they can mask the deficiencies but you see the record here against proper opposition. They they're not even listeners. Just getting hammered three. Nothing doesn't even begin to tell you. How different teams and how much of a different exists between bio munich and barcelona three. Nothing was dominant. Say walking three nothing. He was a training session three. Nothing and champions league and this barcelona at home and day took and i mean this is a good old fashioned backside weapon it almost fell like they did not belong in the same feel with by immunity anymore. Well apparently not and pk's telling us that we are what we are and what they are right now is a team. That is no longer elite not to the level by munich now they can compete in the league. They may give it a run and perhaps content for title but in terms of competing at delete level champions league. No sir not right now and not anytime soon. Craig what do you make of what says there. I mean he's he's probably not lying. But is that what you want to hear on meter ingenuous from piquet to be talking about kids because yes. The kids came on but the game was dead and buried by that point. Now you look at that frontline. That's no kids that's experienced players from midfield forward. They signed their garcia. The buck from mindset. That's that's one of choices. He said they are what they are but they were even with missy when the league with messy the before the eight happens with messy so the where wearing they are what they are when you when you have a fair from quite frankly wasn't getting a game other clubs lita the what. He expects no sympathy for them. It means just bide management from top to bottom. It's the bottom line is complete. I mean by munich. Never go foster second gear the not close anymore this moment. Same to see barcelona at home absorbing pressure with numbers behind the ball defending and hoping that they can close down gaps and spaces so that they can make it somewhat difficult for byron munich instead of being this sort of team. That and this is a word that you're being proactive. With the possession taking teams into their defensive and being able to connect passes in the manner in which barcelona is supposed to be doing. It meant it is a different in different team on a different. Now look for this group that you just cannot be encourage if you're a barcelona fan so obviously surprise ronald coming getting hammered and the spanish and brass lots of criticism from the manager's perspective. Is there much else you can do. We're talking about the players. He's got loop day is not a nine at barcelona. He's not a starting forward at barcelona's previous level for the standards they expect. What can the manager do one thing. You can only hope that the youngest grow really really fast but also couple of players maybe jump back but it it. It's a very tough decision for an uncle. Didn't expect messy delete. Didn't expect a reason to leave. And so now it has a completely different face in my only hope. Really that pecan was and the the really kind of stepped up now. They open their mouth but in a constructive way in a positive way and give them they give the entire environment some energy. they're always need league. I think is manageable but Champions league will be very difficult for them. So it's now a process that they go into that is four. Rona coleman raver difficult because he expected it differently but a fido rawls is a is a phya lifted and a blade it on every level and and i can only hope for him that that things will turn but the demonstration of bio meaning today was just a a really tough one to swallow for them for bossa lona because i mean dominating every little part of the field with every single player if you compare play a one to one they just run in a different league and and so it's it's gonna be a couple of tough months ahead or maybe entire season. Two seasons for boston owner frank. I think like hardly met a barcelona fan. That likes ronald kumon. Is the criticism justified. Well again as you can say. You don't have a possibility to make your team better because you do you lost or two of the best players you could have if you consider that money's one of the top player in the world which i think and even if he lost the confidence that you needed to to show silent. But when you lose the skipper then you knew some of the players because of injury. Oh because they left the club is hauled to to pretend to do something that the fund saw looking for. You don't have the squad to be good enough in to compete in the champions league you of young kids you have kids and then you have players will maybe a little bit too old to To be effective like they used to be so you have to break. Everything is like a building a wall very fragile stone at the bottom and long every stance on the top. You're going to collapse your walls collapse. You have to. You have to break everything and research from scratch. How long it's gonna take. I dunno. Cooman is the man can solve the prime out and build the right wall. I dunno in knows.

Continue to play harder run faster and further than seemingly anyone else from the four three in the first game at anfield to delay it win at manchester city have been by far the best team to watch in a season. Where so much of the league was rendered able by covert restrictions and zero fans in the stands. Did they buy a player or two yes. Regina's has been good but this is the core of the team that won the championship. Andrew names like bamford harrison ailing and dallas talk about getting the best out of the players. You have at your disposal and this quote sums up meals leads and he said this back in january january or february. He said if you finish eighth by not playing well for me. It's worse than finishing twelfth by playing. Well they played well. They were a joy. Everybody's neutral team until their fans get back lead united. That is a great call. I won't really argue it. Except i will for this person who i have selected as my manager of the season. Jj david moyes. Who would have thought we'd be sitting here saying that. For a guy who stock had just plummeted and he's back now a top managerial pyramid pyramid. That's right number one in the league. The season this team for west ham sixteen year ago. Got them up to six the season they were battling for champions league contention. Incredible thirty points a year ago. Sixty five points this season west ham set club records this year. For point total goal difference away wins sixty. Two goals scored this season. Not that for club. That really only has one true center forward and mcculloch antonio sixty two from that's more than chelsea arsenal the same number as you just mentioned all out attacking leeds united and one thing that i think really spoke to what they were about the season across all competitions. They only lost two games in a row one time the whole year so this was a team that never allowed any bad situation to snowball and i think oftentimes that is something that i attribute to the leadership of manager and now he takes them into europe. It's not the champions league but still west ham and the aropa league could be a fun ride for them there as well. So david moyes congratulations. You are my manager of the season worthy choice. My friend we continue now match of the season. This is one of the glamour awards of the night. Jj i will go. First here may seventh the king power leicester city looking to solidify their hopes of a top four finish newcastle looking to assure themselves of a stress free finish to the season.

"Let's start at. What was i think. Effectively may not turn out to be this way chelsea could still go out but a play off for the champions league between chelsea and leicester city it's bridge was a replay of the game on saturday. Then you have a cup final Homemade some not all of the same choices including putting my man reese james in the back three convince And chelsea one. I think in the end it was to wind. And you could say maybe you're gonna start at the end but i thought chelsea really really dominated the day. That was their god. They were after they were really fantastic at times. In the way they build up the movement away from the back under pressure at times. I still alice the plate for draw. And maybe i'm wrong. Maybe that's not. That was the idea. But he's certainly felt like that in in the team that selected with natural on the bench in the way they played in the weather priced. Look to me via merged lockheed. Very happy with that was fair well. Madison came in. So we can have madison. I thought was really poor. I don't think he's fully fit. Maybe no he's on your hard if you play for a draw to to have my against a team like this against him chetty like this to to to expect too much from madison. Nothing the upshot of all this is that we're set up for one of those end of the season kinda three way runs but three-way dances chelsea are playing away to aston villa. A win guarantees them. A champions league. Place is only going to be easy at all we'll get on to this lester. I'm liverpool liverpool beating burnley three now essentially if they both way and they're gonna finish level on points it's going to be decided by goal difference and liverpool now have an edge of four goals in the goal difference so so liver put up again chris perez. That's right liverpool roy. Hodgson his final his final game. He loved to put one over liverpool and less spurs. Who can still still have to play for your petty place. Yeah so clearly lester.

"I think there's going gonna be really tough game brighton. A tough go at times someone to say to one as well but chelsea and then in the semi final in the champions league against real madrid. I think this is going to penalties. After andre eighty minutes it'll finish to to between the two sides level on away goals and we'll go to penalties. I if my heart can take that. Chris i don't know but in this fa cup semifinal. I m squad rotation and we did have guests on this show this season and he loves tending to that garden. At wembley i would love to see. Olivier giroud feeder against manchester city. Get that sort. Maybe a spot. For abraham i think team verner obviously more fresh legs now. So i'm very curious to see what the starting elevens are. I think if there is a more rotational squad from both these sides. The advantage goes to chelsea. Because i believe in their squad rotation a bit more. There's a wider. Drop off from the elite. Starting eleven that manchester city have them when they start rotating. No offense nathan. Okay irate you just. It's just the reality of the situation and mad. Respect zach seven to americans in the cup semifinal in the champion's league semifinal maybe we see seep ten score against and who knows. But i've got this one going to chelsea in penalties in the fa cup semifinal. I've got chelsea in an ugly one. One nil over brighton hogan and chris. I'm going to surprise you. I think this is the destination the champion's league semifinal being able to say i'm one of the top four teams in this competition is a dream season. I it's been great. I have you know how much i respect real madrid outside of chelsea and roma which i've named my dog after that's my team. Spain every classic gruden for los blancos. I love and leave it at that. So i think the experience is going to be a big factor in this one. I think chelsea have survived some mistakes. I don't think they can survive that against a potent goalscorer like ben zuma and these players that have just been there so i think we'll learn a tough lesson maybe in this game and be better in these games and be better for it so i have real madrid. Go and buy three to one. The full aggregate. That'll be an exciting second-leg though chris. I think we're not going to learn a lot. I think these teams will feel each other around. And i saw know will come down to the second. Just bits on on both these games for me when it comes to ray al. The most important thing from chelsea perspective is not giving away easy goals round madrid love profiting off of easy goals in the champions. They chelsea if not given too many of them away was a minor moment with mendy in the porto tie. That cannot happening. It's real madrid. they will pounce and the other thing as it relates the cup semifinal..

"Leboeuf and julia raw small. Joe's voice thin it finished then. Psg one celona one pse advancing five two on aggregate. This will i saw was fascinating possible and obviously all over. Ps gps she would then take the lead for an invite pay penalty. Extraordinarily brilliant goal from lionel messi would see one one dan belly had a million chances he couldn't convert and then on the stroke halftime really the defining moment in the game leeann are messy having that penalty save and he just felt then boss. Lana run out belief in the second half. We didn't quite see this team. Is that fed to sally. That penalty save changed everything. Of course he did even more. So when you watch it and then you watch it again and you see mode godly encroaching and clearly encroaching and so therefore if you have a system in place that could take a look at this and say you know what this is not allowed. This is against the laws of the game so therefore the penalty should be retaken and the truth of the matter. Is that when you see this happening. You have to question how come. Vr can take a look at this and say no. That's okay it's good play on. I don't quite understand it and to your point did change the dynamic of the game because as good as barcelona were in the first half the second half years they had possession years. They seem like they were about to create something but never really would that sort of confidence that they really thought that they were going to be able to come back in this match. I just don't think that after messy and it's not only the penalties after messy misses a penalty that means for this team going into halftime. Coleman cannot get this thing going for the second half off joel's how you love var because farrah's clear the thing that amazes me right. You've got to review penalties kayla novels off his line. No he's fine. Who was made razzi. Did he encroach yes. Seeing coach retake just forgot the second aides to be fair watching on television. I saw throw variety was encroaching. And i really thought they're gonna take this one again and when they were checking. I don't think that check in just for novice. I think there must be checking for everything. I agree with you. I don't understand. Why didn't they didn't to be taken. I don't understand why they give the pse pronouncing the first place anyway. I would not have given the long lay stamp on cardiac either through there were shambles the tonight in paris it was to the advantage of psg. So i'm not gonna complain. Though the lack of consistency again showing a niece is quite dramatic. Really english officials. Frank plain english while while blamed english. I can blame mr taylor and these systems. But i can blame the the world of referees. Were doing crazy things. And and and talking about consistency. It's an consistent all the way and we can talk and debate everyday about the decision. I mean that's that's insane. I can't even discuss about the penalty in the first penalty for procedure. The first leg. Dissenting up into celona. I wanna know where in which kind of football we are going into giving penalty for crazy stuff. I mean the penalty. Cardi cannot get the ball whatsoever. Okay longley never look at e cardi. So he's not willing to make any foul on e. cardi but we still decide to give a penalty because e cardi because longley stems only cardi. Not doing it on purpose again. So what kind of football is that is not the football. I loved the football where you know something can happen. But because he's not around the area of the dangerous area we don't really care because it's what it is especially if he's not mean if he's not a on purpose. Why do you wanna give a dose of penalties. That's crazy for me. I don't understand well the encroaching stuff. It's even worse because we also that we all named it but how they don't want to see it just a question we'd have to add them and it's not because the english because i'm sure will be french. It would be the same. It would be germany would be same. So it's it's awful. The food we are we are seeing right now. We're watching rhino.

Isn't it coming up over the next couple of days. We'll stop at looking trump. Let's go madrid against chelsea some other. The chelsea as favourite not six to four on to advanced next trying athletics. Eleven to ten men rapids. He absolutely flying in la league the first half of the season they have somewhat just a little bit foreign off. Course levante being very much thorn in that side. You're against on wednesday lost on saturday. Let's welcome shall we. Don't just sit low. Lo look ahead to this game. Say let's start off with a athletic perspective xiaowei. What's going wrong with them. They all right. I think we'll go move the wrong with them. In part was that this was likely to happen at some stage. Although perhaps not in quite this way bear mind. They've now dropped many points in twelve days as they had in the inside season up until that point but is in for full-on collapse in all four games. It's one victory to drills the fate as a site. that'd be on such good full. It was fifty four fifty seven points at fifty fifty seven points in the first half the season that it feels like a glass. I think in a way if you look at the results before this games way they were always on edge there again where they were just about coming through very light winner. You've are weiner out of s for example that going behind much more often than previously remember they concedes remedies minute behind in the entire season. That's not happen more often. They're conceding early goals. They gonna seven games in a row conceding so it was the probably some point tip slightly now not into a full blown crisis but certainly into a situation where they were necessarily gonna mean sign that level incredible efficiency in winning games that they had up until fruitful weeks ago and coming up against a chelsea side. Don still unbeaten under to call but very very ordinary against hanson. Yeah just methodical. The hard sites watch chelsea they get. The job done. Didn't against that in the drawer but they were hard. Watch nothing. thomas tickle early on. I think he's testing these players. Think he's testing. Mentality is testing the players and different systems. Put the weekend. He lasted fifteen minutes and took stripe off again so he didn't work took off the ball put about so it's a chelsea sought while you won't you come on west off whereas the where's the attack and fled just very very methodical. Caffeine phoenix can tighten me. I can't imagine be free flowing ends and talking football full three job so don just call chelsea methodical and if you think of you don't feel like hey look at them they're open. They're attacking they're going to commit number full and so therefore if you have an athletic team that has been struggling to get results and you have a team. That is quote unquote methodical. Then yes you're exactly correct. This is not four three. this is set pieces. This is very tied very tactical certainly in the first leg in which is going gonna make it physical from. They have to get back to that. They've lost a little bit of that and they've lost a little bit of attention to details in the game against the weekend. Golda was not scored by motorists early on. There's the ball over the top from set piece attack and said piece of mind on a mis-clearance goes over fifty yards and morales one one situation against like that doesn't happen against atlantic city. But it's been happening more and more often over the last ten days or so they have to clean up those details and clean those details where you're going to find something that is going to be very very difficult to beat

What we know - and what we don't - about the new coronavirus variant

"Normal for viruses to mutate. So how alarms should we be about the emergence of this highly infectious variant of the Corona virus, which is now prevalent in southern England, and if the variant is that much easier to transmit? How do you stop? It spread both within the UK and around the rest of the world On Sundays, its impact was starting to be felt. Britain's Health secretary Matt Hancock said people had to act as if they all had. Variant. The new variant is out of control when we need to bring it under control, and this news about the new variant has been a Um, incredibly difficult and, frankly, an awful year on bond. It's important for everybody to act essentially act like they might have the virus. And that's the way that we can control it together. It's not something for government or individuals. It's something for us all to do together. But could this you vary into the coronavirus also Be resistant to the vaccines that have been developed to counter the existing strain. I've been speaking to Dr Lucy Van Dorf, senior research fellow in Microbial Genomic, said the UCL Genetics Institute. What's name for certain about this virus mutation at the moment. What we know is we have a variant in circulation, which is carrying 14 defining mutations, which we haven't seen in the combination we see in this particular variant before This includes seven within the spike protein off the Corona virus, which is the protein that's most important for binding and entering human cells. One of the reasons that this has raised some concern, it's because some of these previously identified mutations have been implicated. In having some kind of biological relevant So the vast majority of mutations we have in this virus and and mutations are very much a natural process and this thousands of variance in circulation have no impact. But in this case we do have sets of mutations, which have been flagged as may be relevant. So are important in terms of the ability of the virus to bind to human cells, and also potentially for some degree of communication. And so this is one of the reasons together with the A marked increase in frequency of this particular Varian within the UK that scientists are studying it really very carefully right as we speak.

The messy dependency more so than ever. But that's only part of the family. Speaks the one part of so many things that are going wrong for this team. They don't get close to anybody defensively. They don't pressure the bolt together. They don't work as at eight on look connected like a team. This is a group that is all over the place guys running around doing their own thing and hoping that something happens and more so than anything. What are you.

I can remember to be honest it was a defensive horror show off against the shack talk team who let's not forget what may say six first choice players and a number of substitute says well, row without second reynolds the CAP team at it was just they fell off the conceding that I go they went completely to pieces gossamer spend back in the second off and pulled it back to three to lake your ruled out but that one make any once again just how bad they were in that I just bad. The. Made. Some big decisions with a view towards the classical at the weekend. He leaves out and he got lauded for leaving out crews and Ben's. Alex, I'm going to give him the benefit of the doubt a tiny bit because I say, Hey, it shocked are minus six. You're at home you're motivated because you had a stinker last week and against God and deserve to lose. Maybe this is a Good Game Benza and crows today off right. The problem is when Bensimon doesn't play the team, just don't function in attack a loop. Yovich again, last night he had one pray tame header on saw and that was the throughout the day and he was. As. Roma, chasing the comeback which tells you everything you need to know cross you could understand may be giving him a a great by the problem is with Raimondo ready missing can you really leave out these other subpoenas if the of the team nine know the Ramos isn't always a nice consistent defend that but you have to heat has been that he's got a slight meet problems. He wouldn't have let the game just get away from the way didn't stop and the this. I mean Rafael Veran. Dreadful and this is the session dreadful Champions League game in a row for him because let's not forget he was to blame but both goals they began. In the summer alongside etta mealy Tout Stewart looks nothing like being worth fifty million euros around with Chip Light Volume Marcello I love Marcelo it to be honest like. An ex player he kind of jumped the shark awhile ago. s the Monday was laid out. Position was appropriate. You want to go away with any any credit on the right hand side courtois, dot them out of trouble a couple times it wasn't just the tall maitree chances and took them. Three one on ones the coach manager save over the course of the nineteen minutes. So it could have been even worse I mean less season they lost. The game of the Champions League in Paris they had a really rocky start. This is didn't. On yeah, they came back. They weren't playing Schachter. Owner but let me finish this. Season so I don't think. A rocky a shaky start like this one is anything new for Sodano, for the club however I you Janis making mistakes I think the players only are not up to the task mentally physically and technically as a group not forget didn't sign anyone in the summer. A few of the players left Bahamas pressure is really under Alex because he's done of course and everything that he's achieved as a player and manager that club is huge but that's two defeats in a row obese two different competition, and then the classic the weekend will happen if they lose is three in a row. Or do you still think that still has enough credit in the bank to two last regardless of what happens on the weekend? Of course, he's calling credit in the bank. He's got more credit than anyone because what you've done by do you think he doesn't situation is somewhat unique because even though he's won two titles as a coach, even though you on those three genders lease in a row, there are still some nagging questions I think and legitimate questions about aspects of of the jump that he does and some people and least includes people at the club at Rome Madrid at the. Question exactly how good coaches to spy everything that he's not in terms of trophies one I don't think there's any risk of him being sacked in the short sample, but we'd see Dan would say is that you can never entirely ruled out the rescue him deciding to walk away if things aren't going well, and if he feels like he's not the right man for the joke is surprised when away lost time having just wonder champion slate a milk expect that to happen right now by. Signing the we can discount entirely. This is very different. Coach doesn't necessarily need you get. He doesn't need it in the same way that other coaches to. Feels like I say he's not the right map for the talk. If you will I I completely agree that he would walk like getting say like Oh goodness can go I mean. Again he said like tomorrow is GonNa be Sunny. Who who can come up with you feel I listen I would point out that when he walked away last time, it's because two of his superstars neither films there anymore both of through. Hissy, fits through toys out of the Pram after the game and he said I. Have enough of that.

Chelsea’s Lampard tells Liverpool not to get too arrogant

"Shocker Shirley. It's not about the profanity to hear more about our Lampard said calling Liverpool arrogant. What do you think about the words in the Chelsea manager? I have no problem with the exchanges as they have on the sidelines. These things happen every single game. Between managers between players between teammates and the training, so there's nothing new or unique about this other than. points out the fact that there's no crouch. Obviously, we hear a lot, Clara. Do take a little bit of exception to frank coming out and seeing well, he would have had a beer with with you in club, but for what was said on the sidelines, not by Union club by the. Coaches. I read that has anything to do with it. You have these heated exchanges. Both men with would know this. And then you go in and you. You have a drink as much as do after the game. And you move on. I don't see why anything. About bolted, but to use that as an excuse, not to have a drink with and club I thought a little bit silly, and then you can klopp kind of doubled down on the silliness by him bringing up what Frank Lampard said in the. Post game press conference. A whole lot of silliness at play here that somehow snowballed into an issue. Greg just to clarify. Do you see any point to what Lampert says when he calls Liverpool, aggregate. No not are the best team in the country. This year in terms of the league possession by a male. They have a manager who demands is teamwork hard. They celebrate that enthusiastic. Mirror image of their manager in terms of desire and their enthusiasm and the drive. And I don't think anybody thinks. The arrogant. I think we don't know what was said from the bench from one of the coaches whether they threw something and jokes, he's face we don't know. So, you know only allow these coaching staff and the substitutes would have heard that, but certainly from eleven club playing perspective. There's no arrogance. Whatsoever. What we have to remember here Frank Pas and second unit management right false, cheering the premier league, the needed a point. To Guarantee Champions League football. Game against all needed to get something probably be. Champions League, the pressure was on. The result was going against them Liverpool. Tearing them apart at one point, he was not seeing as clear as normally would. Hide a moment. And there's nothing wrong with our have we can. We can agree and disagree about was used, but there's shock shocker, said this thing. This thing happens and. Both of them are think of. Something wrong here? Because as I said at that Light, Jurgen, KLOPP's in lesson, we're furniture after the vinyl west and he's basically telling lump. Economy say after the final West. Caught, you should rise above the. Chocolate. What about the point that? Craig makes your? Maybe the pressure of the end of his first premier league season getting a little bit. Be, and of course that's that's an excuse for a very good excuse me very well. The benefactor, but I, as as I said before and Craig agreed with Double Don. These things happen this this is not unique. This is not just about an end. Game! This is not just about the manager in in the second year in and management. Aw, the data WanNa pressure these things happen every single game whether it's I be fourth or thirteen three sixteenths. These things happen on the sidelines at just taking on a different context because of clearly hear it. Because of. What's unstick as far as neutral concerned? I and The fact that the managers in play our Jurgen Klopp who is the premier league champion, and still defending European champion and Frank Lampard as a player who's seen it and wanted to all and a little bit of her clash. There's no more to it than. Van That

That's we got an hour to fill. We're also going to hear from sid low as well as sit Julian Laurent now, why do we need all of these people? Why do we? How else are we possibly going to talk about the upcoming forty eighteen world? No, not that. We have the final eight of the Champions League. Here is the draw has conducted this morning. I x and event CR seven against the team that knocked out his former mates winner that gets the winner of the all English quarterfinal between Spurs and Spurs new stadium. Should be ready. I think for the first leg of that one. Of course, Liverpool draws Fourtou somewhere. Steve Nichol is I would say doing handstands, but I don't think that's. Ability because of the draw. Winner of that gets Manchester United and Barcelona showdown. They're of the blue bloods, as we take the odds to advance to the semifinals and really just just paints. The picture there are clear favorites and clear underdogs in each of these quarterfinal matchups. The four favorites you've Liverpool Barcelona man city all kept apart in this quarterfinal round like six different people to choose from. Not sure who let's start with Jewel's Jewel's. You saw the draw take place this morning. What was your reaction? I love the author was Britain grow. Like, you said there's a favorite in each of them. But also upset very possible in each of them pretty much maybe Paul from the Liverpool potent game, but apart from that, you could also see maybe looking at you. You could see United maybe have another miracle against boss. Oh, nine did push against in the Spurs city. There's also could be an upset. So I think survivor draw chocolate you were the one that was on yesterday show hoping that the favorites would be kept apart. You've got exactly what you wanted. I'd prefer to see these teams big teams big European teams that are still left food on the competition that being said you've got a couple of clubs in there still play with hosts money acts after the American debate about we've got Manchester United after their turn it around against peer. She I don't think a whole lot is expected of them and as good as Puzo against Oldman. You just feel against their will be outmatched. So there are upset to be had there portal, probably the easiest route to to this point. So right, those smaller clubs of apparel. But you do want to see the bigger clubs Sydney. Literally competition. Would you make the draw watched? The all okay. Would you make them? Any dramas because of the biggest bowls and history. No, why do in seconds and public fair in minutes, born tears, so I don't watch it. Why would you watch it when you can just go on your phone and get the draw off?.
