"The like what what score four in the final right and then they scored four against argentina. Yeah i mean like even the handbrake being on the look look at the group stage though as well. I'm just saying. I i suppose you just look at the names and you think maybe there should be even more. Oh this idea but there. There're brilliant team. They're incredible anything on his important when you watch bacteria when they play he is. He's huge to this site. Of course yeah. I mean for me. If i'm saying most important player golden because that's that's a guy from i saw a stat today. Jj i guess i think espn fc tweeted that engulfed j. Paul pogba has play when they played together for france. Twenty seven times. They've never lost. When those guys are playing together to other questions about this. The benza thing that i brought up like obviously the player bennema is phenomenal great player. Yes and he'll score goals for them. There's no question about it. But like the teams that succeed in these tournaments. Generally speaking like when france were a disaster. It's not because they didn't have great players. It's because they were kind of mess like does bringing benz ima back into the fold. A guy who publicly ridiculed jerus- You know we know his issues with the whole like sex tape scandal like cadet in any way upset. The applecart of what seems like a pretty together group. What is giradi just laughed it off. He said we'll go karting. If we to celebrate a victory or something like that you know it was just. It was a great public comment. But i wonder if like inside. He's like go back but benza came off injured in the three defeat of bulgaria. The other night so you know maybe maybe it is your who gets the nod from the start that yeah there can that that could upset the apple cart little bit. I don't know how he's viewed by the rest of the squad. Don't forget the squad has had some turn over since two thousand fifteen or twenty sixteen. The last time bentham played. So yeah i dunno. Jerus- seems like a very good soldier. He really does he does. He's his scoring record. He's only a few goals off teary on ray for france. So he'll have his eyes on common and make an impact if he's not going to start. Iii just seems like a really good guy. I think he will he will. He will meet the challenger. Benjamin being there rather than Sulk or anything like that one day. Maybe not on this podcast. But one day we need to broach the question of which. Which french side are you taking. Like this era france or the ninety eight two thousand era france on never turned down opportunity to watch down again. So that's easy sedan toys. A gay re even sylvan for players like that veer and center the park. Not not a chance okay. In twenty years someone will be saying that about bobby of course and don't forget it's nostalgia a huge back of that too especially with you don. Yeah all right which group stage match up you most excited for. I mean flip a coin. Yeah i'm just going with tuesday's clash between france and germany. The potential for a big team to be wounded early on is really enticing. As again plus. It's france germany rematch of the final from the was at the sixteen euros sixteen euros. Yeah which rate game a game. I thirty enjoyed to france portugal. Just simply because we'll get a rematch of the sixteen final. And i wonder if france will be Extra motivated if that's even possible. Yeah alright player from this group that you're most excited about adverts andrew o. Was covid injury interrupted season that really hampered and bought the champions league final was an indication of what he can deliver and i think he could be key to kick starting this german attack. He offers them something different. And so i'm going with kia. That's i'm an shirt. I went super cliche here. But i can only tell you how i feel inside and that is. I'm so excited to watch him. Thirty seven goals and ten assists in all competitions. This season he was excellent. Like i thought at the last world cup at eighteen years old. This guy loves a big stage. He won the young player of the tournament. Award at the last world. Cup became only the third teenager with four plus goals at a world cup The other two by the way edmund conen of germany way back in a day and pele and now i'm bob they still just twenty two years old geez. I can't wait to watch him. Probably if we had a question of this question for the whole tournament as opposed to just group by group. He's my answer. Okay when i say darkhorse team from this group who would you say. Can i go. I hear you can cause. I don't really have one because my answer is weird. 'cause never is there not a dark horse but i'm gonna i'm gonna say germany and i'm only saying that because like am i wrong in feeling like there's been kind of like a downshift in expectations for them. Don't you feel that. Also maybe it's because they didn't get out of the group in the world cup and twenty teen. The recent world cup qualifiers in march were were fairly poor. They lost the north macedonia. They only beat romania one nil. So like maybe there's kind of this feeling of you know. Maybe that germany's time has passed. But like i'm sorry man like first of all if we've learned anything over the years. It's the germany always wins in these tournaments. And like you mentioned have it's just not prepared to write off aside that has a net ruder swollen. Hummel's centreback gone cross Habits gerrad ska moussia in the midfield. Gabri verner sante. Thomas miller back in the fold in attack like i if they're bad again then i'll just take the l and say like okay. Maybe i should have listened to what other people were saying. But it's just hard for me to look at this team and thank their time is through. I'm just i can't do that. I'm concerned they're still a great side yet. I am going to balance out your comments. Because i'm more or less in sync with you on this one with the with something that i found very interesting from jonathan wilson He says that four of law squad have not played a minute for him in three years suggests how badly wrong has planning has gone. So that's homos muller who he just exiled Gunter the fullback and kevin violent up front so no world cup. Winning coach will ever be entirely scorned but the that low has stayed on too long could easily slip into something even more negative. There may be one or two problem positions but this is a highly highly talented squad. Low just needs to needs the equivalent of his job in rio to work out how to use them so apparently earlier on in the article. Jonathan's talking about how Yoga of was struggling with this whole concept of to get the best out of his team in the middle of the two thousand fourteen moral culp and he went for a jog on the beach in rio and it came to him He might need that again. The andrew. he's got nothing after this. He knows it's over so he's in for broke..

"Questions before that one of the questions is always who is on the hottest seat entering the season We don't have that question for this tournament. How ever. I would say that frank. Boer is the honorary winner of that. If we were to have that question here yes. And i also think that his family aren't helping in the matter. I'll get to that second interesting. Just a couple of other notes before we get to Some of that stuff I was surprised to see the genie. One album was their leading score during qualifying with an impressive eight goals. Yeah he he was part of the he was at the vanguard of that kind of regeneration that happened under ronald koeman for qualifying before kumon left of course last summer to manage barcelona he was he was getting into the box. Andrew a lot and ending open the end of things for for holland. He was a bit of a gold machine for awhile. Yeah by the way. It looks like he's on his way to. Psg seems to be the case An about turn that he. He has a good relationship with party. Tino and has nearly went spurs in two thousand sixteen before he went to liverpool. So i guess he's getting his chance to to play for now. We often look. Jj at the netherlands is the best country to not have won a world cup but they have achieved euro glory back in nineteen eighty eight. It'll be looking to do it again. incredibly this as well documented. This is their first major tournament since the two thousand fourteen world cup where they went out in the senate argentina on penalties member. They beat brazil then to finish third. So we'll see should be interesting. It's been a while since we've seen them in a major tournament like you said we will certainly be talking more about them. And then finally ukraine who you mentioned moments ago in your. Tell us something. We didn't know staff grew yes. Top groupie ahead of portugal left. Portugal and second dot is considering the the class of portuguese squad. That is no small feat and you know managed by shevshenko legend in idol an icon in in that country. This is this could be an interesting tournament for them. And they'll certainly look are really wants to get out of this group and expect to get out of it. I think yeah you would think i mean like you said the fact that they topped their group in a group that included portugal was fantastic for them however they come into this tournament. I don't know we'll see in in march. They're free world cup. Qualifiers were less than stellar. No they didn't lose any but they drew all them. One one the first one with france which okay we can forgive that but then they drew one one with finland and then one with kazakhstan. So maybe a little bit of raised eyebrows coming in. I have no idea exactly how important stuff like that is entering a completely different event like this but but worth noting i would just say in their defense. It's unusual to have competitive games in the springtime of summer tournament. It's usually tuneup games. Warm games. maybe. That's a factor All right here. We go five big questions for group. C number one. Do you view. The netherlands is perhaps the greatest wildcard for this entire tournament. I mean i guess. I do andrew. They used to be perennial pre-tournament favorites but then they didn't qualify for the last euros and sixteen to make it to the world cup in russia. Lost some of their luster really Something of a renaissance. Like i mentioned behind began under ronald kumon and then they qualified for the postponed tournament. Then camp frank de boer and a poor start to life is doc manager coupled with this fallout this baggage from his last three jobs. And that's cast a cloud. And the critics like i alluded to are coming from all sides including his brother ronald who played with them at i x on on the dutch national team and i think he's he means well he just uses a phrase here andrew. That is not good so he was This was reported by goal. Nagazine ronald de boer is talking to debt telegraph. Which is the dutch newspaper. You would turn over in his grave. Deboer told the telegraph formation ahead of the netherlands. Final warm-up game against georgia But he would also do that if he saw the games of barcelona under ronald kumon while it is still a very attractive. It is about how you fill it in. He's talking about five the back i believe now. Also they've been tinkering with this three five to write kind of a hybrid five at the back also. Yeah it has not really been working no players. It sounds like are expressing their descent with using this. They want to go to the four three year. Study us which would see delake and debris at back in a more orthodox formation. But hundred if you're if you're trying to defend your brother don't start off by saying that. The greatest hero to soccer is rolling in his grave. Right now right they also. They reached his mother for comment. Also she said he was. A terrible student never claimed his room to family. No virgil van. Dyke is the massive bill. Seen as we're talking about defenses sender box but the team is talent. It's huge not having him. I mean like my. I almost feel like my perception of them is completely altered by whether or not he is or isn't there. Obviously we know he won't be right. He's just of that level of player where it's so unfortunate. Sure i'm on the upside. All their group games are at home and the arena on. It is on paper at least a relatively weak group so no pressure. No pressure frank. Well they've got to get out of this group can you. Can you imagine if if they don't. I mean my god will be allowed on the flight back. I guess they won't even have to fly back there already. In the netherlands for these games you'll be made walk home at least right one player that i wanted to mention specifically for them. And that's meant to supply you're standing over standing on top of everything. Oh you're gonna do him for your Your third question. Then yeah okay. Well then i'll save all this and we'll talk about more there and we will go to the second question of which group stage match. Are you most excited for.

"I'd bet you like this one. This is your chance to really flex your intelligent muscles Yeah i guess kind of flex political muscle in a way so it landed on. Tell me something. I didn't know okay. Well i'm hope you don't know this. Maybe you don't know this but on their angry in moscow andrew but not at their own team this from the bbc. A new case for ukraine's football team showing a map including russia annexed. Crimea has provoked anger in moscow. Ukraine unveiled its sharp for your twenty twenty emblazoned with its borders including crimea. And the slogan. Glory to ukraine russia. Annexed the crimean peninsula from ukraine and twenty fourteen and considers it part of its territory. Something rejected internationally a russian. Mp called it a political provocation.

Uf your twenty twenty has been approved by uefa in accordance with the applicable equipment regulations. The front of the shirt shows the contours of ukraine and y including crimea. And the pro. Russian separatists control regions of donyetsk. An lou hank or lose shank But far russian.

Mp dmitri shove called a shirt. Totally inappropriate urged fits take action. Incidentally the us embassy in kiev ukraine's capital tweeted love. The new look with a photo of the new case interesting. Yeah bear dot is. It's like how can we design jersey to provoke another country. Yeah talk about. You know all the things people say about. I wear the shirt with pride shirt means so much to me. It means the country well in this case it actually does. Let's see my. Tell me something. I didn't know jj. I i have an american brain. So i took that with me in this there are not many. Mls players taking part in this tournament but three of them are playing for finland. Robin laude. and you go right to la both of minnesota united see and lassi lappalainen of montreal impact. So if you're an mls fan kind of looking for someone to latch onto. I would say the team that has three players playing for them would be a good choice for sure That would be the hips choice as well. Which will suit a lot of. Mls quarters so there you go. That's group b. now we rounded out. Jj in our part one of our uefa euro preview with group c. All right here we go. According to the average soccer power index rating. By the way this is the weakest group in the tournament as we go through it. You can decide for yourself whether you agree start with austria austrians here for the third time in the last four tournaments managed by franco fota An in qualifying marco not to pitch their leading goal scorer. But he's been dealing with a thigh muscle. Tear now photos seems optimistic. That are not too which is going to be able to play. Says it'll be ready for the start of the tournament Whether that means he'll be in the starting eleven or in some sort of sub reserve role that remains to be seen but that's potentially important for them continuing now. Jj to north macedonia like finland. This is their first ever major tournament. They got through indie. I remember when we were going through this. Initially like wait. What what my head hurts. They got through into this tournament by way of the nations league. Qualifying route where they beat costa vo and then georgia yes they. They went to nations league qualifying path. D and they finished third in group g of euro-qualifying proper behind austria. So again we've got a team north macedonia ending up in with a with a team. They've already played in qualifying proper. What there you go. The nations league giveth and it gives us north macedonia. I just remember being like you know what this is confusing. Just like wake me up when we know who it is and now here. We are perfectly for us. goran pandev. Jj people remember him He scored the winning goal against georgia. He's thirty seven years old. Now who's on the the two thousand and ten in toulon trouble winning side surprisingly effort scoring that goal against georgia. he is an all out icon in north macedonia. One of these a complete hero and beloved of marino from that two thousand ten side by the way pandev struck again just a couple of months ago. Also when north macedonia stunned germany. Remember that. I think we mentioned that on the podcast. They beat germany in germany to one handing germany their first world cup qualifying defeat in twenty years. North macedonia did that and now here. They are in the european championships for the first time the netherlands. Jj they were qualifying group runners up behind the aforementioned germans. There will be lots to say about them. Yes is do you want to do how we leave it to the five big questions. There's there's actually there's so much to say about them really They are probably considered the the class of this group. Boy i i think that there is a. They'll be nervousness going into this competition not least on the part of their manager. Yeah every year for the permanently when we do our our twenty questions before that one of the questions is always who is on the hottest seat entering the season We don't have that question for this tournament..

"Kenny had an interesting comment on them. As reported by the guardian. They are almost like a club team in that. They are very certain and their roles. I don't think you can play an international site bigger compliment than to say. They're like a club team That togetherness as being a building block for finland and will be key in this championship for me. It was denmark just because like you mentioned spine before schmeichal nannu move to central defence with simon. Shar andres christianson. Then you move up a little bit more to hoy bear ton. thomas delany. Dan a little bit in front of them. Christian erickson upfront. Take your pick brathwaite. Use of poulsen casper. Dahlberg have that all the way from back to front. Yeah i think this is. This is a good denmark team. I i really think highly of them. I think that they they're one of my dark. If we're talking true dark horse like wails were the last euro a surprise. Run to a semifinal. I could see that happening with this team. When i when i say darkhorse for finland. I'm probably meaning get noted the group right. Yeah i could be perfectly honest with you. That will be really nice. Ruined for them. And it's not beyond the rooms possibility whatsoever and then last but not least. Is there a team in this group that you give shot no there. There isn't for me like i. You know if you if you were to look in depth that the russians they one of the oldest squads but they have some of the least average played at club level and they've got great experience artem subas back after brief twenty accidentally released a video. We probably won't talk about that resercher office back age. Sixty four on the midfield. Golf is going to be key at the very young age of twenty five. And i look at them. I thought it was going. I was ready to write them off. But i can't because. I think this is a tight group again. There's nobody i write out. You're probably gonna write off the defends right. Yeah i am okay. Look i'd be happy to be proven wrong here. I think it could be fun. I'll say this team. Yuki better be healthy. Because he'd been dealing with an ankle injury like i said he scored ten of their goals in qualifying. They scored sixteen goals in qualifying. He had ten of them. Like this guy matters to what they're gonna do here. Certainly are you ready for the stat. I'm about to lay the status of the year on you. So the most goals across the top two flights in england since twenty eighteen nineteen so between the primarily in the championship. Here are the three players who have scored the most goals in that timeframe. Harry kane has fifty six mosala has sixty two and above. Everyone is team move with sixty six goals. It's unbelievable yeah. Incredible most of them the championship level. But still still. It's it's i mean. Look he did play well in the primarily to wasn't able to sustain it for a full season but we certainly saw flashes of why i make him so valuable to finland. And here's another stat another. This makes no sense against belgium who they're going to face in their final group stage match. Finland actually leads the all time series. Four wins three losses. Four draws finland had success recently against belgium having not suffered defeat against them since october. Eighth nineteen sixty eight that makes no sense won or tied against belgium in their last seven matches. Look i know that. Belgium's golden generation is now but it's not like belgium were garbage before that like no teens go two world cups like finland has been nothing like this is their first. Major tournament is stats. That is just wild. Finland owns belgium. Yeah alright the wheel spring it back out here. let's go and spin. Oh i'd bet you like this one.

"It'll be nice still. That's enough people. Certainly that will have an atmosphere for sure and saint petersburg russia going to be interesting. All right third question here. It's probably my favorite question that we ask in each group the player from this group that you're most excited about considering my group a choice. People might say he's going to go for drinks mertens. But i'm going to be different and say romelu lukaku. Twenty four goals and ten assists for syria striker who is now back in the forefront of mines on probably at the top of some shopping lists considering what we're hearing is going on at inter. It's his time for big tournament to line a grit club season also to kind of underlying the Regeneration he seen in syria astle I'm excited to see romelu lukaku one other thing I always do this jeremy. Doku nineteen years of age stat ran. Went winger. It could be a tasty option off the bench for martinez I went with belgian as well. Oh to me. This was actually very easy eden hazard just because especially if we don't know exactly what a status is like we talk about this guy he can be one of the best players in the world and if he is like he. He's the kind of the key to this. Where i almost can't believe how good belgium could be. If debrecen is healthy and lukaku on forum and hazardous like chelsea has art. I mean my god you know. How could they be an attack but we also know what he is when he's disinterested or when he sees some sort of drop in form as we've seen in patches with chelsea and most recently in real madrid so you know roberto martinez spoke about him this week and he attributed a lot of the struggles that has has gone through two injuries. But he says now he's fully healthy said he's been on a good mindframe in training should be a full go for this tournament. 'cause he had been dealing with a little bit of a knock but they say he's a high he's ready so i'm just so curious which has are we're going to get a throwback to the you know the end of his time at chelsea or will we get you. I don't know how to say other than the disappointing version that we've seen so far real madrid because we get. There could go a long way in determining what belgium do here. He's going to be well arrested anyway. That's for sure. All right fourth question. When i say darkhorse team you say i think fenland i should say russia because considering their performance the world cup and twenty eighteen and the fact that played two of their three games in saint petersburg. That's a that's an interesting one for me. But i'm going to resist. That urge i saw defense play and beat ireland in the nations league awarded. I thought we should've beaten them. Away are the manager. Stephen kenny had an interesting comment on them. As reported by the guardian they are almost like a club team in that. They are very certain and their roles. I don't think you can play an international site bigger compliment than to say. They're like a club team That togetherness has been Building block for finland and will be key in this championship for me. It was denmark just because like you mentioned spine before schmeichal nannu move to central defence with simon shar andres christianson. Then you move up a little bit more to hoy bear ton. thomas delany. Dan a little bit in front of them. Christian erickson upfront. Take your pick brathwaite. Use of poulsen casper. Dahlberg have that all the way from back to front. Yeah i think this is. This is a good denmark team. I i really think highly of them. I think that they they're one of my dark. If we're talking true dark horse like wails were the last euro a surprise. Run to a semifinal. I could see that happening with this team. When i when i say darkhorse for finland. I'm probably meaning get noted the group right. Yeah i could be perfectly honest with you. The that will be really nice. Ruined for them and it's not beyond the rooms possibility whatsoever and then last but not least. Is there a team in this group that you give shot no there. There isn't for me like i. You know like if you were to look in depth that the russians they one of the oldest squads But they have some of the least average played at club level and they've got great experience. Artem subas back after brief Twenty accidentally released a video. We probably won't talk about that resercher office back age. Sixty four on the midfield Golf is going to be key at the very young age of twenty five. And i look at them. I thought it was going. I was ready to write them off. But i can't because. I think this is a tight group again. There's nobody i write out. You're probably gonna write off the defends right. Yeah i am okay. Look i'd be happy to be proven wrong here. I think it could be fun. I'll say this team. Yuki better be healthy. Because he'd been dealing with an ankle injury like i said he scored ten of their goals in qualifying. They scored sixteen goals in qualifying. He had ten of them like this guy batters to what they're gonna do here certainly. Are you ready for the stat. I'm about to lay the status of the year on you. So the most goals across the top two flights in england since twenty eighteen nineteen so between the primarily in the championship. Here are the three players who have scored the most goals in that timeframe. Harry kane has fifty six mosala has sixty two and above. Everyone is team move with sixty six goals. It's unbelievable yeah. Incredible most of them the championship level. But still still. It's it's i mean. Look he did play well in the primarily to wasn't able to sustain it for a full season but we certainly saw flashes of why i make him so valuable to finland. And here's another stat another. This makes no sense against belgium who they're going to face in their final group stage match. Finland actually leads the all time series. Four wins three losses. Four draws finland's had success recently against belgium having not suffered defeat against them since october eighth. Nineteen sixty eight that makes no sense won or tied against belgium in their last seven matches. Look i know that. Belgium's golden generation is now but it's not like belgium were garbage before that like no teens go two world cups like finland has been nothing like this is their first. Major tournament is stats. That is just wild. Finland owns belgium. That is a grid. Yeah alright the wheel spring it back out here. let's go and spin..

Belotti of torino was their leading score. Five goals during qualification. Last time in the two thousand sixteen year olds remember. They lost to germany in the round of sixteen. They won this tournament once all. What all the way back in nineteen sixty eight. So it's been. It's been a minute since italy's had some success in this tournament. That's for sure I suppose we should put group j that they qualified out of into context. There was a finland into group. There was also bosnia armenia and liechtenstein. So that has been kind of kept in the front of italian finds minds when they get a little bit carried away with what's going on and and their record breaking run but i'm still very impressive. Yeah yeah really wasn't feeling like this is hopefully the start of a new era for them after not qualifying for the last world cup switzerland. Jj won their group and qualifying managed by vladimir petkovic. Who's been in charge since july. Twenty fourteen gotten them out of the group in the two thousand sixteen euros and twenty eighteen world cup. So it's been a good run for switzerland in major tournament play We got a good look at them. Of course last week against the us and a bit of an uneven performance for the swiss but they did win it all. I'd say it looked like a good team very difficult team andrew. A very good look at them because they were in ireland's group in fact i'm sick of themselves and denmark. We are gifted the danes later on the swiss the wizar- a very good side. They are one of these teams that you you you fancy them to progress through this group but this is a very tough group. Yeah it is it certainly is. We'll go a little bit deeper on them in a minute turkey. Jj the third team in here They weren't a tough qualifying group. That had to deal with france but to their credit they took four points off the french and almost won the group. Which would have been extraordinary for them so props to them. We just spoke about how difficult france is going to be. Indeterminate managed by Sunol nests humanitarian to their third place. Finish back at the two thousand and two world cup And so he'll be looking to rekindle that magic. This makes two consecutive appearances at the euros for turkey and three out of the last four. They reached the semis in two thousand eight. So there's some some positive international history for the within the last twenty years though definitely and we treat them as a known quantity but they really shouldn't be impressed already in world cup qualifying back in march knocking off Early brought highlands fancied norway.

Jj the welsh wales their back making their second straight appearance and second all time appearance and what a debut it was for them in two thousand sixteen going all the way to the semi finals where they eventually lost to portugal to nil. Portugal got goals from ronaldo nani on the day but it was an incredible story. Book run for a welsh team. That i think entering that tournament there was some high hopes for. Oh okay bail ramsey. They the names. Some of those names stood out and to see them. Actually put together it It was a really fun ride for them. They're gonna be looking to replicate that once more and they're going to be doing so under the management of rob page. of course. there's a lot going on there in that seat as page took over for ryan giggs. Last november in the wake of gigs is domestic violence incident. Ya this is a team. That's got some of the remaining experience from that. Euro two thousand sixteen team and a light.

I wonder if you find that sometimes with international teams the welsh for me. Are that country where i'll be like. Oh that guy's welsh him that guy to like when i look through there.

Right the way through is pretty strong. Donna ruma bonnici cheeky. Leany george genial On we expect. Maybe it's going to be mobile or belotti.

But i remember talking about them years ago and being like you know key lenient panucci. Both in their thirties. And here we are. You know. I guess now. Five years later and still it's italy seemingly relying on those with the back. Not saying it's disastrous. It's just it's enough of a question mark for me. I guess that it's worth it's worth noting it could go either way. Yes now in qualifying there were other centreback that came in there but we expected to be mnuchin kia leney when it comes to the to the big dance. I would say one thing. They do play an attacking brand of football. That is not the the classic italian style and you wonder if that involves a higher line. What does that mean for pace in behind are those two guys gonna struggle for pace behind. That is a question i would ask. I look at variety and borelli in the middle of the pack. Georgina to they're gonna have to do their defensive. Duties in covering the full boxer. We're going to get forward as well. Florenzie emerson to be in their soul. I wonder just a little bit about age and just a little bit about passport. I'm i've never be more excited about italy andrew. This is an italian team. That is exciting.

But when it doesn't a star individual moment and kevin brown. I'd say more than any manchester city player by a decent amount is capable of summoning it and so how chelsea handle kevin de bruyne. You mentioned georgina ability to get in his way in that. Fa cup semifinal. That'll be really huge again. Because kevin dubrow can change this game and he was sensational in the last primarily game against everton although that was just a a runaway five nil. That probably didn't matter much for either team but he's the player and so how do chelsea handle that. We'll get into our formal predictions in the final segment of the show.

Premier league la liga. which is the spanish league syria. Which is the italian league in the bundesliga. The german league and had them play in a top tier superleague which would be like a season. Long uefa champions league rather than those teams playing their regular leagues the other teams. Just fight it out for the top spot. What does that do to the regular leagues. So critics say it's gonna kill the regular leagues does so well. This is the one positive is it gives leads a fighting chance to win the mvp l. Yeah le- ot that you take the six best teams from england out and lead susan like ninth place right now. The top of it yeah. They're finishing top of the table. So go ahead. I don't like hate on this from kids. That never made the all star team.

Baby better believe that content cup. And i know it was six. Zero people are saying flat track team. Just chelsea phenomenal team. They might be a team for all time and so might manchester city snipping on their heels. We'll get to that in a moment. But we're just an episode removed from a singing the praises of super frame kirby who might be the world player of the season right now. She's been fricken. Phenomenal and good. News is jesse. Must have listened to the podcasts. Because there's no way of knowing that she's been brilliant right. Josie must have been listening to the official chelsea. Podcast because frame. Kirby gets a much deserved contract extension. She's locked up a proper blue. And i have to be honest. This is the stuff of documentary films. This is the stuff of movies what she has gone through it to get to this point and i know that it's kind of become a thing. Where frank kirby is sometimes not even talked about as much as a footballer because of her incredible story but to get to this point and be involved in essentially every goal in a cup final that helps chelsea when yet another trophy to score again amid weaken a three. No win against everton the wfl when as you mentioned manchester city. They're heaping on the pressure in the wfl right now. Both these teams are winning. Basically every match they play only two points separate them in the table and frank. Kirby has just been phenomenal and could probably as you mentioned. Make a case for world player of the year. we'll see obviously international competition. Play such a big role in those kinds of awards. But i mean what a sensation she has been and now we just finished the champions league tie chelsea's campaign in the women's champions and he's gonna take center stage during this international break two legs against volts per coming up while chelsea men are not playing so i think that's kind of the next thing for chelsea on the way here. Is this champions league quarterfinal. But frank kirby what a player absolutely. And i'm really excited about the fact that they have the sage alter themselves but just so improbable right you and i were banning about the idea that maybe mendy is a player of the season on the men's side. That's kind of as improbable as it was for frank. Kirby chelsea didn't really know what they had in. Frank irving knew what she was. Prior to hurt hill minus. But now she's come back in had kerr and harder and all these marquee signings chelsea broad in its really galactic house in blue shirts. It's it's incredible and the gold. Standard of the team just walks on the field and elevates our game. Forget being the same player which is an achievement enough. She's found another gear for am a hayes so massive of nice little bit of revenge against everton which knocked chelsea out of the fa cup man. I would be holding up five fingers one of them got. He's a little trust me. This guy was like roberto carlos. Do this massive really tough all four chelsea in the champions league. These are the best so really excited to see that things before we move onto the mailbag number one. I like the idea of calling chelsea women galactic us great idea number two frank kirby top of the chelsea mike dream guest list. We want her on the pod and number three. Can somebody in the united states broadcast these games. These champions league games. Wsh tremendous job. I know where to find the chelsea women play. It's not apparently last year semi final and final war on cbs. All access now paramount plus. I have not been able to find them. I wrecked my computer with an illegal stream.

We're starved for club team football. Can somebody get this done please. Partners at the club gives us a. Cctv want to be able to watch these. So we can talk about them. And would love to talk about them with frank kirby to just echoing your point there frank kirby and obviously dream guests number one. Now that we got olivier giroux take out of the way.

This is actually interesting because we talked about him some but let's hit on his upcoming games in the international break from at. Us soccer mom one. Why do we see. So much pulisic slander. Even from the hosts are thinking that maybe we were practicing a bit. Too negative about christian pulisic came on today and got an assist as a substitute but is there a chance that maybe this international break and actually a good thing for him. We often kind of are hoping that he goes away with the national team and doesn't get hurt but now a chance to start a couple of games and maybe build up some confidence here with the.

"Is no with ed pet. I love talking to you on unfortunately going to have to take the conversation being that we are the official chelsea. F c podcasts. I do want your thoughts. Because they've been good on what's happened here at chelsea under thomas to cool but i'm just for the audience reason. Why open this up with wanting to find out. His music recommendations is patrick. Renaissance man patois was a dj. -ing under secret names while he was a first team footballer over at chelsea. He's a free spirit. he doesn't necessarily fit what most people i know. People try to put professional footballers in a box. You were way outside of that box. You're a free thinker. I appreciate your stories and insight with that being said. I'm gonna put you in a box now and ask you about what's going on with football club under thomas teuku You you mentioned too. It's not exactly two games in two days but the fixtures are picking up for chelsea here. This episode comes out after their champions league tie. But they're going into the international one of the things that i find very difficult to explain to just casual fans that have been paying attention to chelsea is how the defense has been fixed using several of the players that were identified by many in chelsea fandom as part of the problem. Thomas suco has galvanized this unit and a lot of players who were shaky prior to our now solid as any recent chelsea defense that you've seen even some of the josie marino teams when you extrapolate this over full season sample. I think gen number some of quite complex and technical thanks. You're right he takes somewhere. He almost makes each individual player project. So christianson is a project and has developed. Who's walked and he had allowed project on. A couple of alonzo has been a project. So he's gone those two players but she didn't have before an end. Get along more of calm hudson and he just takes one player. Attainment seems to a low them flow to thomas. Tickles almost got three or four new players. Even though he's not boy anyone it's just please who've should improve that much that and that's what he's trying to every single player a chance to improve and the possession that he thinks is best when an actual fight the biggest changes. He stuck an extra defender in there. It's not complicated. We used to play like florida. The by now i came to five. Obviously the wing bikes will grow up and down but with no go three center bikes and setting front. No actually that's very difficult to great time on the top of that if you makes you team is in possession. The vast majority in town then he can't breathe don't if the ink the ball so yes. There are complex technical things going on. But it's pretty simple stuff as well so he's managed to take them defense incredibly still one. Opposition player scored against joseph the to whom twelve games. She's incredible but we're not creating is many chances and that's what i'm put another guy there. You've actually no go three seven defenders really to sit in front. That's really a core five. I'm not seem a negative because the ring backs can go on. We've got creative. Liz ahead to venezuela the oldest oldest things and soccer. Everyone used to see. Get your defense today. I so that's what he's done. he's sort of died. So loose gardner zahar part because amy an amine any sport and just about anything in those planet you think about it creates much much easier to destroy than create much easier an anything we've managed to destroy and as good no comes tough bar go create a not as much much mys- why we love hazard. That's why i love these guys. It's much much harder. Knots about that will struggle a little bit with said. I can see real signs. You hopes that we can actually change the about. Because has methodology and stay quite unusual. Because he's playing this system where we've one straight sometimes to attend a two guys behind him on breaks teams in used to them so when we get what can well and when we get the best of hover. Tim oh. I think it could be quite gerry. You know teams find themselves but we do need someone who can unlock. And we've not really that guy yet can hoping it'd be and it may be eventually but at the moment we have got someone who can and those spaces and create something from nothing we hazardous sitter and you mentioned kind of the development of the defensive players. Ri- christianson hudson. It's like finding new players in some respects. I think there was almost more of an expectation that would happen with the attacking players. You mentioned christian pulisic. Obviously from our perspective is very involved with that. Meant to be brought along team over. There are so many players that could be that talismanic figure for chelsea and yet. It just hasn't happened yet in this season. Do you think that's something we might leave this. Twenty twenty twenty twenty one season with an idea at least of who that player is going to be heading into next season and have a beginning. Actually he. he's gonna is gonna why it's not quite an f. It's gonna win with traits. Not half this wayne. Hope acquaint quite soon win back and see the power coming into his game. You have to have it so difficult remember. Some of these guys are really learning the game and ugly because a lot of money just because someone commits a big price in your head doesn't mean you know everything is best to land in the premier league stuff and to land knockin of level an expectation levels of chelsea are incredible as bell. So you know. I have real expectation that have will be quite special van again. Caught selling things played stunning canaan city to fight the plague. Joseph very deep and has thing is to run into space now. I was at eleven bougie melody and level pooh-poohed this high defensive light which is great for a team of anna is brilliant and those games you know but we don't often teams like that to play. It's so all these players each and everyone are capable of making this giant leap forward. But you're upset ray. No one of those and even christian pulisic and as well you know. He's a fabulous fabulous telling he should be one of the best blues road going to really regularly and it's keenum because of injuries and stuff. I suspect maybe next season before we get in the best may be a couple of seasons that if you're building attendance guy. Bunch of twenty one twenty two twenty three year olds. That's what sometimes happens. And when they were all suddenly of an age with their twenty four twenty five together on the peach then suddenly. You've got something special if people think that's just an excuse. Remember what will it will happen. We'll go that. You're not young. Ludd saleh qena hefty bill. You know let them. So the other one you mentioned before and you're asking about taxes but christensen's maybe even more obese and not in that elk because most people have played possession. Don't even come close to the best football until the twenty six during that possession famously takes ages for them to become quite please nestling. You're just beginning pressing. So may this season to for all of them. It may be by african. Keep everyone together. The vast majority lose together. There's every.

"But those steps are narrow. We've been there. It doesn't matter who's out there wearing that blue shirt for chelsea right now. They're locked in there all holding the rope and they believe in you do not want to run into a team like that in the knockout rounds of the champions league. I don't care if you're buying chelsea got something cooking right now and they'd much rather have another team. Don't do a thing where you look at the table and say fourthly stephen premier league because that was a legal leaders that were just taken out. I'm not saying they had that attitude. Because this advancement in. This tournament was based on merit chelsea. Were better than at let it go much better deal better chelsea or not that same team that they were during the festive fixtures. Things are different. Now you better bring when you play chelsea appreciating this confidence that you have that you've now kind of gone from well athletic jitter a scary proposition. When you're drawn to their even scarier proposition by the time you get to the fixture to now bring on the rest of the lot and really again as i said so. You're looking at the draw right now of teams you can draw any of them at this point so it's liverpool manchester city. Psg buyer munich borussia dortmund porto and real madrid. I mean in years past if it's real madrid you're thinking well. They're just too strong. They're going to get to the final jeevan. How great would that story be to against his former team or borussia dortmund against his former team There's so much narrative that that can be on offer.

This will never be different when you reach highest level in football and this will never change in no in no division and in no game of football that if you have a special bond you can achieve special moments if you have a special moments that makes the bond even tighter and closer so this is it and we have a little bit of luck. We are super strong. Force it and and we. We never give in this very impressive. It was a fast. Start of the game wasn't expected to be quite that open. They were trying to press us. Hi which increased Increase the speed. There were hardly any interruptions in the game but we said before we used to play a high intensity. I intensity games from premier leak. We thought that this may be advantage. taught them because they are not used to play in this intensity so we catch them day. Try to to press high. We could escape the pressure. More more Could could use our speed and and make them suffer a lot so this helped us second half they changed to formations and we needed to adapt in many situations. But but we never. We never lost the face and Everyone some moments needed to suffer.

"Although you could make an argument for a man of the match in this case and golo kante particularly that first half phenomenon phenomenal. What a brilliant player. He doesn't get enough credit for how wise he is for how smart he is for. How well he sees the game. Unbelievable i know he's got an unreal motor and that's what always draws you to his game. How is someone this small strong. He's so good area early. I mean these women super players that are dame your dollar that he's tough he is the embodiment of what you want your team to be as a supporter. He just keeps his head down. Does business not flashy Maybe ladle it to the right side of the field because he was wide open on that chance. I would've gone nuts for conde goal. Although emerson's scoring was hilarious pull assists by the way good for him because that game was actually not going pretty well for up to that point so good to see the confidence going. We saw in this game where the king would he. He was different player. Yes after he was quite honestly i kinda keep her that is probably cursing himself out for not saving that it wasn't an impressive finish. The past. the buildup countered the defense. It started at all. All great team was phenomenal there. You're joking can you be considered a disappointment. And your teams player of the no one's created more chances for chelsea football club ten goals and seven assists now and i don't believe those seven assists include the penalties that he's one but this chelsea side so i think team oh i want to highlight something that thank god. Cbs included it in their highlight of the goal. Because it is absolutely how this goal starts. It's a free kick here in chirpy or setting up to cross the ball and team verner puts in a sprint. That no one else in the chelsea side would put in and honestly. I don't think most players would put it in because it seems like a waste of energy but he is so fast closes down trickier and it's just the slightest bit of deflection that allows all the not travel over the chelsea defence but ended up right at the head of angola. Kante any heads down for a to start the counter. That only comes as a result of team. Verner putting in that work and then gets on. The ball lays it across the penalty area. So the hockey can finish. It finishes the move that he starts but for me so often. Creativity and that kind of thing is talked about but team. Oh verner when he doesn't score goals that's what he gives you. And that's why he continues to get thomas tickles. Trust in starting each and every match for chelsea took me to church. Chris wittingham one of the many people affiliated with chelsea better playing better under thomas two-goal but a nominal out of you. I really liked what provided in that second. Half because you saw players are relatively unselfish player. Obviously very creative. We make an argument most creative player and we haven't really seen them express himself that way. At least most creative player on this chelsea rosser right and we were trying to figure out exactly why he was in the lineup. because he's getting dispossessed allowed and he's been struggling to find himself on under thomas ducal bowl with mason mount. Here's an opportunity for king t h because if mesa amounts available. I'm not sure we see not just for position for petition. But when when you bring in set pieces and that's mount shop amounts not in there. We got to put restraints in there. I'm not sure to over. Extend the defense in that manner so kings. He has shown that he has a role here and we were struggling to find out what exactly his role would be under thomas circle and then he gets a call under him and he becomes a totally different player in that second half and he's going for goal and you realize oh we have someone that can maybe having a tenth outside the box although ruediger was feeling so we saw a couple of james's feeling himself and you wanna talk about players bombing. Ford ruediger has found another another level. Under thomas sukhal. I love watching him. The ball v going forward. I can't believe i just sat down. It's upside down world here and it's really great. to see. habits is finding himself. These players are improving. And now you start having the confidence because seen him with team. Oh you've seen him with kai you've seen him with the tired defense. If you have a player that struggle say christian pulisic and maybe this assess jump starts his season because he's been struggling to bed as he's been healthy which is almost as encouraging crate. Play on the field quite honestly because that was the chief concern. We all know. The talent player has within. He's shown it at the very top level so if everyone else's finding their form you start now having the confidence said it's only a matter of time before pulisic's coming like you were saying it's only a matter of time before team. Oh scores goals. We'll set getting slightly frustrated. Team will cutting it outside. I'm gonna ask them about it. Do you think i can coach. Willie take offense. Took side occasionally. Because if you're an opposing keeper you gotta be a little happy. Every time decides to cut it outside. Because he's he's forcing impossible angles on himself. And it's it's a. It's been a couple of weeks we've hinted at it. He'll always go outside. But when you not making defenders and giving a kings eh an absolute gift of an assist on a silver platter team do whatever you like. Cut it into a circle. I don't care what dyson teams up. They're not getting chances. We still haven't scored more than two goals under thomas bowl parts really confusing but here we are as we inch towards the international break with one cup tile to go in the fa cup chelsea seem like a team that are poised to win hardware. And that's exactly where they should be. I get angry at myself resounding surprise incursion that because that is the standard here at chelsea heartbreaking. Move of letting go. Frank import then. My lip wanted to work out with frank. But it's a callback to the way things used to be. They weren't getting results. Thomas cole's getting results and you see it's only a matter of time before he gets more guide. Continue buying stock in chelsea. Afc nope we draw. Biron talked me after that even now like my attitude. We'll be bring on because i'd utter fate. In this defense. Chris byron decks should be really compelling because i think particularly if you get that first leg away from home where you may be stealing away goal and limit buyer then all of a sudden you head back home with a chance but i think it's just it's hard to imagine over one hundred eighty minutes. Yeah chelsea to let go do lead lolita. But they didn't really put in the kind of endeavour that a team like barnard impress. Press you and make life difficult. My question kind of becomes an and we actually talked about this on an episode a couple of weeks ago is ken chelsea be more clinical on the break as they were today. The scored on the counter. Its goals on the counter-attack today against athletico madrid. So can they bring that kind of precision to really the only be two teams in my view. Are you kind of need that for manchester city and buyer munich. So if they do draw either of those two teams in this quarter-final can you bring that kind of clinic on the counter-attack. I think that's what it's going to require. But if keeping clean sheets as they are now. It is remarkable. How quickly you go from you know. Can this player plug defensive issue to now. The system is so reliable. That if it's georgina of its context its coverage of zuma beach christianson. If it's ruediger if it's tiago silva quits you'll confident. Now with whoever gets picked at the very least are going to be solid at the back. Oh paper mike. Getting scared again. He quite envision got nervous. It'd be a one one and was lucky enough that a an official swallowed is whistle and chelsea move on. And you're right. I got stop doing some being tricked by the lineup. Very clearly doesn't matter who we put out there. The system has a bright now has not been figured out by opposing teams. And it's been figured out by those on the rosser varying degrees of acumen and at varying degrees of form but the players are unified. How great was that. Cut away at well number one every cut away to needed outfit to you and i both coming to the realization at the exact same time. Well he's going to be a manager to make sense to celebration. George and mount. That was slightly dangerous. Not just because social distancing.
"uefa" Discussed on Chelsea Mike'd Up
"It's been too long for the first time. Since josie marina was second go round with chelsea chelsea fans out of the round of sixteen. I am beyond excited. This was a massive massive win for the mensa. We will get into it. We will also speak with pat nevin making a return engagement here to chelsea mike up almost one year to his debut here on the podcast and the women keep chugging along. We're gonna talk about the women's team and preview this final fa cup match before international brick mop. Wom you're listening to the official chelsea f c podcast baba's thia monaco swag chris wittingham league leaders. What those the points leaders in the league. I look i will give the neutral observer room to make fun of simoni athletico madrid and that playing sale. That you've been lamenting ever since. I've known you when you chris wittingham but let's give chelsea their proper do because this didn't seem possible problems months ago knitted did and i'm not going to kick anybody when they're down. It's just the way things were going with chelsea in franklin part towards the end. We couldn't envision them winning three zero on aggregate against the league leaders in athletico madrid. It just didn't seem possible because we'd give up too. Many chances not silva entrees christians which wouldn't have seemed like a huge miss two months ago either but the lineup. Because it wait. Where's andres christianson. You need them. It didn't actually and again. The chances are limited. I will say this is going to surprise many in our audience and probably surprise you. Because i'm the emotional one and i'm sure you might expect me. Given credit to the officials. They missed up early on as the new by his reaction. He didn't play the ball. Well too many soft touch try to yank was janika roscoe. Yeah try began. Crossbow down just outside. The box roscoe slips past it and then a little bit of tap and then rosco. Does the right thing in that situation fall down. I know many people were seizing on that. But it was really the tug their in combination. He whiffed on the past whiffed on the tug and probably should have been sent off that changes the dynamic entirely so chelsea dodge one. It would have been interesting to see how that game and aggregate take shape if chelsea and someone sent off and let it go go up. One nil your thoughts on the controversy surrounding the roscoe tug. I understand why jamie carragher at halftime thought it was a penalty. I admire the fact that as the emotional on this podcast. You thought it was a penalty. I think it was a penalty. And i know it's basically me and the referee or the only one that think that but that is so soft it is just i mean. It's like the only reason why it would be a penalty is what he's doing right. He's very clearly. I've been beat. I gotta do something just a little bit tries to go for the slightest bit of contact. You can get away with so i guess in the intent. It probably is a penalty. But i think makes the absolute most of it like. I don't think that that's what you should get sent off for and that's exactly what it would have been right. I think that's what the referee probably thinking is. If we give this penalty we have to send us believe quit too often. Are we going to send him off for that tackle and it just or that. I mean it's not even a tackle to pull the shirt and say even that much of a pull the shirt. I didn't think it was a red. I didn't think it was a penalty in my view as been quite has been pretty pitch perfect under thomas two-goal and that's really one of the only mistakes he's made under it and luckily for him and chelsea doesn't come back to bite them when you make a mistake like that and you don't apply the proper touch to a pass the keeper you leave yourself susceptible to something pretty subjective. There are other officials in world football. That blow the whistle there. Send as took off so when you judge it by that if i say we get ten officials and they make that call. I think more than half come away with saying that's a penalty to atletico madrid. And as the dov so judging by that logic i think chelsea dodged one good for them because they were the better team easily would have been shame. It came down to that. Luckily no controversy. No blog write-ups. No angry twitter accounts no eggs in my mentions chelsea especially with that second goal emerson all. He does a score. I mean and finish. Oh my god. God chelsea find themselves out of the round of sixteen finally and we were going over. The history of this is actually been a sneaky long time. Since we've been here it was up against athletico madrid. We were robbed of a dream. Final of real madrid vs josie marino. Year after he left real madrid tibo while still angry that he played in that semi final and athletico sent chelsea gun and they hadn't been able to get back to those heights. Heck they haven't been able to get to the quarter-finals here they are. It's going to be a very exciting draw by the time you hear this. You're going to be just as excited. It's just going to be around the corner. Six am eastern. I imagined we may see a couple premier league teams because there are so many of them copied primarily fan over here we might see a couple of premier league teams do battle in this round. We'll do the whole look at the lot thing but as a neutral this is a mighty impressive turnaround four thomas to chelsea. Were clearly better than at let it go madrid and i agree in that assessment. How did we get here with this manager. The players headed in them the entire time. The board made the right decision. Did they saw one hundred percent. I mean you're heading into match number thirteen under thomas to google and they've kept eleven clean sheets. They've conceded two goals. And i know it's redundant to say this every week but it is so impressive. The manner in which not only do you win games or draw matches because you don't lose them but the other team doesn't really create that many chances and again. It wasn't until the ninety second minute when the tie had basically gone a jaw eli's creates the best chance of the match. And then you have a goalkeeper. Who's done nothing. All game and produces a brilliant save. It's the manner in which that chelsea control games and as you said and as we've talked about it for months with a set of personnel that i think a lot of people think is you know top of the premier league or that you know maybe there were being replaced by other players in the squad or that there needed to be kind of a level up here. These are top level players that just needed to have a bit more of a structure in place. Thomas has given them that structure. And now you're starting to see players express themselves a bit more going forward. I think the breakthrough for team. Oh verner is coming. I think the breakthrough for key habits is coming. He's driving himself forward so much more of that. I came zero after getting the goal. Play a much better second half than he did the first so i think you're starting to see a bit more expressive nece going forward and you see standout individual performances all over the pitch. I'll let you go first in terms of the one that most stood out to you while there are so many out today and we had debates about pretty much every player in our texturing. But let's start with the main in the match because it's not sexy but i think.
Remembering Diego Maradona: football legend dies aged 60
"Argentina has declared three days of national mourning following the death of diego. Maradona very arguably. The greatest footballer of all time at the age of sixty upwards of a million people are expected to pay their respects kosovo's on the presidential palace in buenos aires his monocle. Twenty four obituary away from the outside. But you're legion for dead outside for dead epoch. whatever he did look like. It wasn't a footballer. He was short about five foot. Five and stocky. He seemed as wide as he was told. If you had to guess which field of athletics he would succeed in. It might be weightlifting or wrestling if you met him. This opinion might well be reinforced in no realm. Did he seem at home. With as or graces diego armando murder donahue was born on october thirtieth nineteen sixty in la news just south of buenos iras. His childhood was spent in the shantytown of via we to on the argentine capital's outskirts. He was spotted early. He was fifteen when he made his premier division debut in nineteen seventy six. He was sixteen the first time he wore the blue and white stripes of argentina in nineteen seventy seven though he was omitted from the argentina side. Which won the world cup at home in one thousand nine hundred seventy eight. He became the world's most expensive footballer in one thousand nine hundred eighty two moving to barcelona after starring in that year's world cup in spain. Barcelona knew what they were getting despite aggressive. If not brutal man-marking maradonna was magnificent. But he had his limits against brazil. Argentina's caused lost. He was sent off for a foul which appeared calculated to cut brazilian defender. Battista in tune. Things did not go well at barcelona. Maradonna was ill injured eventually dumped after just two seasons following his ignition of an almighty brawl in the one thousand nine hundred four. Copa del rey. Final against athletic.

He led an ordinary team to extraordinary success to sarah titles are copper italia and uefa cup among others in naples municipal mythology he was regarded as something not far short of godlike. Many are today's neapolitans. born around. That time named diego or diego maradonna also became friendly with certain well known members of the local business community was banned for fifteen months after failing or cocaine test. And slunk away in disgrace. Maradona's jekyll and his hide will always be most famously illustrated by the events of june twenty second nineteen ninety-six at estadio azteca in mexico city. It was a world cup quarter-final so the stakes were plenty high enough anyway. But argentina were playing england. It was four years and eight days. Since argentine forces had surrendered to the british army in the falklands agentina. Tina regarded this game as a rematch argentina. One to one and maradona scored both goals very arguably the two most famous goals of all time. The i was also one of the most outrageous acts of chicanery in sporting history unable to propel himself high enough to get his foreign on miscued clearance by. England's steve hodge. Maradona raised a fist and smack the ball past oncoming england goalkeeper. peter shilton. the ball came back off off neighborhoods argentina a protesting reverie everybody sore but the referee possibly seeking to rub it in maradona later. Slowly credited the goal to a combination of his own head and the hand of god. Four minutes later. Maradonna received a pass inside. Argentina's half then headed for goal both bolting and gliding bewitching and bewildering to bids xlii to read terry butcher and terry fenwick before slotting the enchanted ball past scholten debate about that gulf football possibly seeking to rub that in as well maradonna later. Thank the england players for their gallantry. Less men he suggested would simply kicked him up in the air. It is difficult to believe that this thought did not occur to them. Agentina one thousand nine hundred eighty six world cup. Thanks largely to a dominant performance by their diminutive. Talisman maradonna verged at this point on the supernatural too. The rest of maradona's career played out to the same chorus of astonished applause and resigned. Soy's in nineteen ninety. He very nearly one argentina. Another world cup in one thousand nine hundred four. He was sent home early after failing a drug test. A few more seasons fading football followed then a career. Coaching at clubs of whom few had heard before maradona's turned up to manage them usually briefly. The low light of a short stint in charge of argentina's national side was getting clobbered six one in a world cup qualifier by the generally little feed. Bolivia could beat up saluda. Neither maradona's personal life nor public conduct became synonyms for probity and dignity. He received a suspended jail sentence for shooting for journalists with an air rifle outside his home in buenos iras on a return visit to naples. He had the to rolex watches. He habitually wore seized by local police as part payment for the thirty million euros. He still owed the italian treasury in taxes but no stupidity he perpetrated off the field ever quite included the memory of the miracles. He performed honored. There are those athletes who have the power to change a contest. Above and beyond their ability colossal though it may be space benz and time slows around them. The very fact of their presence alters things that charisma their reputation that half second of doubt they instill in their opponents. They are of that caliber. For whom a gain more race is half one before it even starts you. Think event and center hussein. Bolt shane warne serena williams and you most certainly think of diego maradona
Ligue 1 season cancelled: French government announce no football until September
"Was meeting today talking about when football would resume the government making the announcement as we welcome in Franklin Franklin saying that there will be no football bit behind closed doors or anything until September. This is a big surprise is an ant. It is done. It is and We are shocked about that decision because supposedly the government took the decision on its own. Meaning that Didn't talk to the bottom of the League. Want to the twenty chairman of The League one and took this season where they could have been Do you know what time where you can think about. How the the the virus and all the pandemic goes on and maybe a little bit later in June or end of June the championship in Phoenix. This season the to the decision. It's surprising because now we don't know what's going to happen was going to be champion. Who's going to be qualified for? The Champions League was going to be relegated. Who's going to be promoted those questions? We don't have answers. We have to wait for for the now. The board of the League one to decide whether they're going to stop at the day twenty eight of the day twenty seven because he didn't play against Strasbourg last day or maybe just the the first eighteen games of the season and he didn't come the return games so we don't have all in tears and again. We're very surprised because because it's going to be very hard for some clubs I think about Amir was nineteen now with only three or four points behind Neem and the and could have hoped for a continuation of the championship and be saved. Because you have thirty points in Games in game. So it's it's a hard decision that the government took socially as well because we know the people in France love football and want to see football. But they're not going to see football and soccer before September Frank. A lot of people asked me to ask you what's going to happen with the champion sleep. Espn Leon of course. Still involved the plan from UEFA from what we've discussed and what we understand is that it could be played over that twenty day period in August. If you can have football in France. What's going to happen? It's going to be complicated for for man. A friend of mine took to necessarily Halley party chairman. Who say that. He's going to follow what the government says but he's GonNa fall all sold. What the Earth you f says and meaning that the if the Champions League is held in July August and they have to finish it they're going to finish it. They're going to go abroad to play. Some maybe friendly games to prepare all the game they have to play in the Champions League starting from the quarterfinal because they got qualified against Gort shut moon and they WANNA finish it. It's a big opportunity for percents. I'm going to be a champion of the Champions League this season but if they don't play the regular season of the League one I don't know how it can be fit and competitive in the league
Five Subs a Match?
"Go out. Five Substitutes Gab. This is something that could be introduced when football returns and you love it. Love I think is a bit of a bit of a stretch. It's something I would like to see. I mean they're talking. You've already introduced a possibility at UEFA level in under twenty one's and I think under nine teams as well. It's something that clubs have asked for. It's been talked about when the primarily returns it's been talked about when city returns Simply because they're going to have to pay so many games in such a short. It should just short stretch. You want avoid injury. You WanNa limit minutes on the pitch. One of the key things. Here is they the five substitutions. It's not like you know it'd be those summer friendlies where you send out another substitute every minute. You would use those five substitution. You can only use the three times a game so you would see more double substitutions and things like that so as not to interrupt the flow but I think the benefits in terms of fatigue in terms of squad rotation terms of living minutes and of course limiting injuries. I think it's a positive. I don't think there's any real reason why threes just just an arbitrary number. Frankly
