00:02

time podcast with mike and laurent it is

00:05

tuesday august 17th in this episode

00:09

00:12

00:13

week one is in the books

00:16

new boys branford smash

00:18

arsenal chelsea and liverpool cruise

00:21

but first mike we had a dushiko

00:24

and it uh was in uh

00:27

it was pretty good for you but it was a

00:29

lot of fun i'm glad you had a good time

00:32

uh i did not have a good time

00:35

i find it funny that you know manchester

00:37

city has a heck of a time in north

00:39

london in fact

00:40

there's been four games at the tottenham

00:42

hotspur stadium between tottenham and

00:44

manchester city and manchester city have

00:47

not found the back of the net at all

00:50

this is something we really fail friend

00:52

oh please

00:53

69 shots without a goal

00:57

yep to your life and so 15.

00:59

so so two of these games uh were

01:02

mourinho masterclass i believe they were

01:04

both two-nil um where we would get two

01:07

shots two goals and smash and grabs um

01:18

where they were in the channels the

01:19

whole time

01:20

fine

01:21

this was not that

01:23

this was a this was a bar fight this was

01:26

for 90 minutes

01:28

and granted there were stretches where

01:30

where each team was better but like it

01:32

was it was an incredible game to watch

01:35

for a number of reasons um but mainly

01:38

because

01:40

amidst all of the kane speculation all

01:43

of the

01:44

the the the second the game started it

01:46

didn't matter right the pomp and

01:47

circumstance

01:49

city being the champions

01:51

it

01:53

the 11 men on the field for tottenham

01:56

were angry and they had a point to proof

01:59

um it was awesome yeah i haven't seen

02:02

that very spirit

02:03

it was very

02:06

he wow

02:07

look who showed up it's pochettino spurs

02:10

yeah well yeah i mean i haven't seen

02:12

that:

02:16

leading the charge now there's no

02:17

erickson there's none of that it was

02:19

much more uh a physical strong

02:23

hard-running

02:25

group effort it was very wolves it was

02:27

very nuno it was

02:29

it was you know he's a he's a good coach

02:31

and maybe we're gonna find out that hey

02:35

yeah year four was a hard time but his

02:37

first year at wolves they won the league

02:39

by a lot and yes it was all portuguese

02:42

but

02:43

spurs were good i mean i do i will give

02:45

credit to city the first 15 minutes or

02:47

12 minutes it was it was looking rough

02:50

you guys were on the ropes of course

02:52

uh grelish and sterling were really good

02:56

but

02:56

your boy and here

02:58

mark first hero of the day

03:01

tanganga was just like

03:05

a [ __ ]

03:06

full-on um

03:09

he was

03:11

he was just totally [ __ ] stalingrad

03:13

out there and so let me let me explore

03:16

manchester city were knocking on the

03:18

door and he just held the line with

03:20

anything he could he fought he fouled he

03:22

did anything and they let him let me

03:25

talk about the [ __ ] guy from my team

03:26

will you um

03:29

tanganga it's interesting he actually

03:31

had a bid

03:32

alone opportunity um in galatasaray in

03:35

turkey and the team desperately wanted

03:39

to send him out alone and nuno was one

03:41

of them he didn't really get a good

03:42

enough look at him yet and said hey look

03:44

you know you're gonna get regular time

03:46

if you go to this club you should do

03:48

that it'll be good for your career and

03:50

he

03:51

patently was like [ __ ] that uh i'm gonna

03:53

stay and fight for my place and i'm

03:55

gonna see what happens and at the end of

03:56

the transfer window if if i'm if i

03:59

haven't you know proven my worth to you

04:01

in the club and if nobody in england

04:04

comes calling then yeah sure i'll go to

04:06

turkey for a

04:07

semester abroad right um

04:10

but he was immense and and he embodied

04:13

everything about spurs uh spirit and and

04:16

unwillingness

04:17

to um to respect what

04:21

city was trying to do

04:23

six minutes into the game uh grealish

04:25

dives

04:26

right outside of the box

04:28

uh

04:29

a chance goes begging fine but after

04:31

that it was literally like oh you want

04:34

to go to ground little boy we're going

04:36

to give you a reason to fall down we're

04:39

going to kick you we're going to stomp

04:41

on you we're going to push you we're

04:43

going to throw you around because you're

04:45

in our house and this is not how you

04:47

behave in my house and it was night it

04:50

was 84 minutes from that point on of

04:53

tanganga and skip and hoi beer and delhi

04:58

and honestly sanchez and dyer they were

05:00

great as well um

05:02

just pushing manchester city around and

05:05

it was it wasn't

05:07

it wasn't that they were more talented

05:08

than them it was that

05:11

city doesn't like to get punched in the

05:13

face right i mean we saw in the

05:15

champions league final when they

05:17

literally punched or elbowed or i guess

05:20

it was a shoulder um

05:22

kevin de bruyne in the face antonio

05:24

rudiger and ko'd him and broke his

05:26

orbital bone

05:27

yeah everybody on city got shell-shocked

05:30

immediately and that was something you

05:32

know you you sort of saw at spurs now

05:36

the other super important element we'll

05:38

talk about a few other games that had

05:40

this element uh you know affect the

05:42

outcome for sure

05:44

was that was

05:45

62 000 screaming fans

05:49

really good performance by the spurs

05:51

supporters for sure it was it was

05:52

unbelievable right and again by the way

05:54

it was

05:55

so yeah

05:56

illustrative of of the sort of early

05:58

dominance so i'm looking at here city in

06:00

the first

06:02

10 minutes had four chances one blocked

06:05

off gundagon fernando

06:08

fernandinho and ciao concerlo both

06:10

missed then nothing until 34 whereas in

06:13

between there berguin sanchez and mora

06:16

all have chances uh that are blocked or

06:19

or miss early on and then you have a

06:21

they sort of look like clusters of those

06:23

were scary bergwein sanchez mora then

06:26

sun has another chance where he kind of

06:28

stutter steps on minute 28 then again

06:31

before the half ends at 40 and 42 with

06:34

with sun again so and it was all from

06:37

from maura on those two so maura and sun

06:40

were really clicking and instead of the

06:42

harry kane dropping deep thing basically

06:45

moro is like [ __ ] this passing thing i'm

06:46

just going to run past people yeah

06:49

and then pass it yeah i mean

06:52

a lot of the play was built out of right

06:54

those wings um

06:56

but a lot of strength in the midfield

06:58

there was a lot of balls that were being

07:00

won

07:00

especially delhi and especially hoibear

07:03

um we were getting a lot of joy down the

07:05

right wing because for whatever reason

07:07

pep decided to start benjamin mendy at

07:09

left back

07:10

awful he's [ __ ] hilarious to watch

07:16

and it was so weird i mean we talked at

07:19

ad nauseam in the season one of the

07:21

squeaky bun time podcast about uh you

07:24

know spur soccer being a weakling sport

07:26

right

07:27

this was quite literally uh the

07:29

embodiment of that

07:30

and so

07:31

um

07:33

it was still striking to see

07:35

such a an

07:36

impressive man city team the the the

07:39

club on the field cost what 900 million

07:41

dollars and to have somebody that's that

07:43

far off the pace

07:45

and everyone like yeah just go go get

07:48

that guy he sucks

07:51

like what is he even doing here um and

07:53

it's not

07:54

obviously it's the beginning of the

07:55

season there were you know fitness

07:57

issues with a number of players but

07:59

zinchenko came on as a sub

08:01

which means he was more than available

08:03

um and so this comes down to another pet

08:05

mismanagement for me

08:06

they got so much more solid once he came

08:09

on i think no absolutely some for some

08:11

reason with mendy

08:14

there's a squad thing everyone likes him

08:16

he's a good guy

08:17

he is ingratiating to the team i think

08:20

pep feels like he has to play him

08:22

because he probably brought him in but

08:24

whenever he plays city are bad

08:27

and a lot of it is because his defensive

08:30

capabilities and speed which he used to

08:32

have are just gone and people run past

08:34

him he tries to come up on people and

08:36

they disappear

08:38

um cancelo

08:39

yeah i know you had him he was player of

08:41

the season he was in the the p premier

08:43

league

08:44

uh best 11 but i'd say the last month

08:47

and a half of the season he was bad and

08:48

missed the champions league final

08:50

and i think the thing that i noticed and

08:52

what we we've talked about a million

08:54

times was

08:56

cities

08:58

break eraser aka kyle walker

09:01

was not there and you can tell

09:04

when city don't have that athleticism

09:06

the thing that pops out to me more than

09:08

anything and the game is the game and

09:10

you know city had chances whatever games

09:11

are games but i think i try and think

09:13

about thematically what i saw was just

09:16

the physicality and strength of spurs

09:19

was evident when you go and you've got

09:22

maura who's really might be small but is

09:24

fit and can run you've got berg wine

09:26

who's built like a brick [ __ ] house yeah

09:28

does he have problems finishing yeah he

09:29

should have scored a goal um oh yeah on

09:32

a [ __ ] up that he at least reminded me

09:34

reminded me of that game last season i

09:36

don't remember who it was against where

09:38

he missed and that was scary oh no i

09:39

remember it was the post in anfield

09:42

ah that's the one

09:43

you should have won that game oh we

09:45

should have

09:46

and then the midfield of of skip ali and

09:49

hoiberg was just like

09:51

[ __ ]

09:52

you

09:52

we are gonna kick your ass and and they

09:55

weren't really making forward passes i

09:57

don't think skip

09:59

had many touches or passes at all

10:01

but when everyone got close to spurs got

10:04

close to city in the middle they [ __ ]

10:06

got hit

10:07

and that made a difference and i saw

10:09

ailee did a lot of that and i thought

10:12

fernandinho was like

10:14

being a warrior but getting his ass

10:16

kicked like there needed to be more in

10:18

there and

10:19

you know gundagon

10:21

is a nice player he's tidy he's quick at

10:23

the ball but

10:24

he can't match the physicality of big

10:27

strong dudes like they were city was

10:29

getting roughhoused well and they were

10:31

hunting in packs right and so that's

10:32

kind of what what nuno

10:35

what nuno was sort of preached you know

10:37

during the pre-season and and wolves it

10:39

was

10:40

in fact like wolves literally yeah right

10:42

exactly

10:44

and so yeah i mean we talked about it on

10:46

on the on the preview show i made a joke

10:48

uh you know nuno knows right and so yeah

10:51

uh we've we that's without further ado

10:53

12:24

[ __ ] weird lineup well we'll just

12:27

we'll just wait until you until lester

12:29

beat you five two and we'll make a

12:30

hashtag pep out sure

12:33

speaking one thing i wanna

12:35

oh go ahead one thing i wanna talk about

12:37

uh with this game though um

12:39

is the way that anthony taylor managed

12:42

it because it was good um

12:44

it was really good it was

12:47

unlike a lot of the games we've seen in

12:49

the in the last few years it had it was

12:51

chippy um but it had the

12:55

it had the opportunity to get real

12:57

shitty and it it didn't

12:59

um but i think that was that came down

13:01

to the way that the radication was

13:04

managing it yeah

13:05

he pulled lorries over at one point uh

13:09

grealish was really getting frustrated

13:12

and i was loving every second got the

13:14

[ __ ] kicked out

13:15

he got that [ __ ] he does

13:17

he does play for that so well understand

13:19

that like he

13:21

like i mentioned earlier in the show he

13:22

dove very early in the game it was

13:24

egregious he got away with it and the

13:27

crowd really started to get on him every

13:29

time he got the ball so it was a

13:30

combination of 60 000 people screaming

13:32

at him which by the way aside from

13:34

wembley in the euros he has not had he's

13:36

he hasn't had in fact he's never gotten

13:38

booed probably ever

13:40

um

13:41

so it was his first experience being

13:44

frankly the bad guy let's backtrack in

13:46

the championship against birmingham city

13:48

which is aston villa's rideable a fan

13:50

came out and punched him in the face

13:52

oh yeah that's true

13:56

i forgot actually it was worse it was a

13:58

sucker punch you punch him in the back

13:59

of the head yeah yeah yeah

14:02

i forgot about that wow

14:05

and he was cool with it he was like my

14:07

man he was he laughed he's like whatever

14:09

dude i remember that now

14:11

um but no it was it was the constant

14:13

over 90 minutes uh just berating frankly

14:16

uh and

14:18

and and the getting the the knocks right

14:20

they're getting the beaten up but the

14:21

way that taylor managed it uh there were

14:24

a few yellow cards given actually near

14:26

the end of the game i want to say 85th

14:29

90th minute two grealish and i believe

14:31

lucas mora uh and there's a had a little

14:34

bit of a sanchez it was

14:36

uh and there was um more maura got one

14:39

early the one you're talking about late

14:40

is sanchez and greeley sanchez okay i

14:42

couldn't see who he gave it to from

14:44

spurs because they were off screen but

14:46

um the funniest part about all that is

14:48

that there's a picture from that

14:50

exchange of grealish wagging a figure at

14:53

lucas mora

14:55

telling him you dove you can't do that

14:57

and everybody's like are you [ __ ]

14:58

kidding me dude you do that for a living

15:00

like

15:01

um

15:02

so it was fun um

15:05

but yeah so real quick uh

15:07

in the:

15:10

yeah pep guardiola called tottenham

15:11

hotspur the harry kane team

15:14

since he's since he's done that

15:17

tottenham hotspur has beaten manchester

15:19

city four times at home they've not

15:22

conceded a goal

15:23

harry kane has not played any of those

15:25

games

15:29

i think that's really [ __ ] great this

15:31

is a great anecdote yeah i i don't know

15:33

i do guardiola

15:34

no i think i think what happened is

15:36

probably in that moment he probably just

15:37

forgot and just kind of like spaced out

15:39

and just called him the harry kane team

15:41

like you know what i mean his english

15:42

isn't great so that kind of thing

15:43

happens but i understand on the city

15:46

side it's just like

15:48

city are a very

15:52

high-end machine

15:54

that don't it doesn't work when it's not

15:57

right like it's a it's a fine-tuned

15:59

engine like it's very german engineering

16:02

like it has a computer that makes it run

16:04

and it's fuel injected and it has like

16:06

guys and it needs a [ __ ] ferrari

16:08

driver and it needs all these things to

16:10

be right for it to work but once one

16:12

thing is off it kind of sputters a

16:16

little bit like

16:17

i know uh bernardo silva was a want away

16:21

it seemed weird he wasn't playing or

16:22

didn't come on uh i know

16:26

i know that mendy's sort of like out of

16:28

the way but you know anyone but mindy i

16:30

know ferran torres is young and whatever

16:32

but play a [ __ ] striker i mean he did

16:35

miss a couple of really good chances

16:36

there was that one near the near post

16:38

where he just couldn't get there and

16:39

city did create chances and easily could

16:42

have been up early right uh

16:44

i think mahrez played well early there

16:46

was a couple good chances they were just

16:48

just out of sync right just these little

16:50

things yep um diaz being on the right

16:53

instead of the left you know makes

16:54

things a little bit weird for him

16:56

because he and stones were the other way

16:58

around and ake being left footed he's on

17:00

the left side so i think part of that

17:02

shot that son took that went in he was

17:04

betwixt in betweens and the as the

17:06

english say and he kind of could have

17:08

blocked it but went the wrong way so

17:10

there was a lot of weirdness that

17:12

allowed spurs to win but i don't

17:13

begrudge spurs they played with

17:14

physicality and force and that really

17:16

want makes me want to segue to the

17:19

to the to the brentford game which was a

17:21

physicality enforced game uh friday

17:24

night friday afternoon we were all

17:25

working

17:26

and we just went nuts like it was

17:29

[ __ ] incredible

17:30

like i tweeted for an hour i didn't do

17:33

any work um it was just good like

17:35

brentford 75 years

17:38

out of league i know where the stadium

17:40

is i know that neighborhood i know

17:42

everything about that area and it felt

17:45

good to see this

17:46

team just turned up to 12

17:49

and arsenal show up

17:51

arsenally uh with

17:53

the youngest team

17:55

[Music]

17:57

of match week one for all the teams

18:00

right they just it was like arteta's

18:02

like hey let me what's the best way to

18:04

lose this game

18:05

uh let me play the youngest players i

18:07

have

18:08

in the most hostile environment anyone

18:10

has seen in 70 years let's do that

18:13

that's a good idea and and the weird

18:16

thing was arsenal were actually better

18:17

than it seemed and they really lost on

18:20

two moments more than anything like a

18:22

bad clearance in defense and then a

18:25

throw in

18:26

that could have been a foul another day

18:28

but ben white really should have just

18:30

stuck his foot out i'm just like can i

18:32

just ball not bounce please

18:34

the expected goals flatter arsenal but

18:36

they do

18:37

i i watch that game and i don't it did

18:40

not feel that way at all no at all but

18:42

there were two there were at least two

18:44

really good saves by raya really good

18:46

yes no no no without question right um

18:49

but i didn't feel it right the flow of

18:51

the game didn't feel that way like you

18:52

said arteta set them up to fail

18:55

and surprised that's what happened but

18:56

um

18:58

i i a word on him because i defended

19:01

arteta for a long time and i thought you

19:03

know and and coming from city i'm sure

19:05

you were a fan of his as well and you

19:07

thought he'd do well at arsenal and

19:08

wouldn't listened i have them in sixth

19:10

right i have a snake yeah i'm being good

19:13

and it's really a stake in arteta it's

19:14

like i think he's got this

19:18

right but maybe he does

19:20

sometimes you know the pundits we sort

19:22

of hate sort of listening to them and

19:24

bother them and go oh what the [ __ ] are

19:26

they talking about but they do know

19:28

stuff right they're like this team's not

19:30

good enough

19:31

they're just not good oh no it didn't

19:33

take a pundit to know that i mean no but

19:35

you know what i mean like you just like

19:36

oh it's shaka

19:39

like

19:39

right the [ __ ] he gonna do it's like

19:41

oh they're relying on emil smith rowe

19:44

he's 20 like what is he gonna do like

19:47

what what is he supposed to do he's

19:48

supposed to i didn't think he was good

19:50

for what it's worth he was really good

19:51

like he had that one turn and shot which

19:53

was good and then it was there was one

19:55

other one i don't i think tiered tierney

19:57

it's always the same three players that

19:58

make

19:59

it's row tierney and saka and if they're

20:02

not playing and they're not awesome

20:04

they're not good although your point

20:06

your boy martinelli played and he was

20:08

bad he

20:09

yeah

20:10

but uh i mean everybody in the attacking

20:12

band until soccer came on

20:14

smith rowe was good but he didn't have

20:16

anybody really to to facilitate you yeah

20:19

i thought balagun

20:20

was 19 years old and just didn't make

20:24

the right runs he seemed to be very it's

20:26

just unfair to him man it really is

20:28

right and those dudes are men like those

20:31

central defenders that that brentford

20:32

had were big strong and not here to [ __ ]

20:36

around like they made that goal on the

20:38

throw in because one of the [ __ ] guys

20:41

put his ass

20:43

on

20:44

on the uh on

20:46

on the keeper and bert leno could not

20:49

move him

20:50

right

20:51

and

20:52

what was supposed to happen is and

20:54

almost all the pundits were like you

20:55

gotta be as a defender you either either

20:57

the goalkeeper literally [ __ ] rakes

21:00

his foot down the calf or that guy like

21:03

get the [ __ ] out of the way

21:05

or

21:07

you know your defender has to go

21:09

and

21:10

push him right there's a lot of

21:12

physicality

21:14

that goes on in football that people

21:16

don't really realize until oh that how

21:18

did that why did that ball go in because

21:20

someone stood on the goalkeeper and he

21:23

didn't move the dude out of the way

21:26

right so uh i thought it was just scored

21:29

from nothing

21:30

no

21:31

but they scored from a throw-in you know

21:33

yeah but the goalkeeper was pinned he

21:36

couldn't move

21:37

no i know i know i know and they [ __ ]

21:38

up the interesting thing so we talked a

21:40

lot about ivan tony

21:42

leading into the game

21:44

awesome he was he was

21:46

in the shadows amazing he had zero shots

21:50

not just shots on target zero shots but

21:52

the things you could first of all

21:56

the athleticism drips off of this guy

21:59

but the way that

22:01

he's [ __ ] animals

22:04

he led the team in pressing so he got on

22:06

yes

22:07

he was everywhere and the thing is that

22:09

you could tell

22:11

it's almost like like watching one of

22:13

like

22:14

what one of the all-time greats get like

22:16

watching like kobe get mad at like his

22:19

other guard for not thinking the way he

22:21

did because like tony would take a pass

22:25

and he would he would like pass it and

22:27

just make a run or vice versa and he

22:29

would get like stop me like what are you

22:31

doing why are you not me just go be me

22:33

right uh there was a couple times where

22:35

i caught him doing that and it was it

22:37

was just awesome to see them

22:39

to see a championship player coming up

22:41

into the premier league and looking like

22:43

he's already three and a half steps

22:45

ahead of every move he's making and it

22:48

was just so interesting to see somebody

22:50

moving that far ahead at that speed it

22:53

was unbelievable so he's yeah what do

22:56

you think he's like the size he's like

22:58

he moves like pogba right that kind of

23:00

like

23:01

galaxy gate

23:02

but has like

23:04

and is somewhere

23:06

two notches below the the muscular

23:09

of michael antonio right so it's like a

23:12

a lanky kind of pogba but jacked like

23:15

michael antonio you're like yeah dude

23:17

[ __ ] is that dude he's dancing

23:19

he's a big brick [ __ ] house

23:22

so he's gonna be even more fun

23:24

and to your point right his partners

23:25

right so kanyos and bueno in the front

23:28

three were both

23:30

both were the ones who sort of like

23:32

scored the goal and and created the

23:34

chances but it's tony

23:36

who's sort of facilitating and making

23:38

all that happen as a group they worked

23:40

as a unit between you know um all those

23:43

guys between kanos and bueno bueno was

23:46

also really good like their whole front

23:48

three they just when they went forward

23:50

they created chances and to be fair like

23:52

arsenal were not bad in this game so the

23:55

narrative is a little bit

23:57

a little bit intense

23:59

a little bit unfair i'd say sorry

24:01

but i think as a new team in the league

24:04

playing with

24:06

fearlessness playing with intensity

24:09

playing to their style like you knew

24:11

what they wanted to do and you kind of

24:12

had a sense of it within you know five

24:14

or ten minutes like sometimes they went

24:16

long sometimes they played short a lot

24:18

of mixing up of their play they didn't

24:20

have a tremendous amount of shots but

24:22

they were so good like they just made

24:24

fans immediately on a friday night like

24:27

okay let's this has to happen now yeah

24:29

brentford are amazing

24:31

and the fans had just killer [ __ ]

24:33

chance and it was loud and they were

24:35

great stadium

24:37

and it was like

24:39

was incredible oh man or did you hear

24:42

the other one we're just a bus stop at

24:44

houndslow oh even better

24:48

yeah but i mean you'll always listen

24:50

when you're beating arsenal in the way

24:52

that you do and we called it on the show

24:55

um you're gonna have my heart but when

24:58

you throw in hey arsenal you're just a

25:00

[ __ ] tottenham hotspur i mean well

25:03

where do i get your support [ __ ]

25:06

where where where your support your

25:08

support is [ __ ] [ __ ] i mean just

25:11

killer killer [ __ ] housing and i'm sure

25:14

any away supporter is probably there

25:16

going

25:17

okay

25:18

yeah all right you got me right like no

25:21

arsenal fan is like oh yeah that sucked

25:23

they're like okay yeah no no [ __ ] we

25:26

yeah

25:29

this is not a joke right so this team

25:31

and i just watched something i shared

25:32

with you earlier is one they led the

25:34

league in scoring in the championship

25:36

they led the league in xg in scoring in

25:38

the championship and while they didn't

25:39

lead in defense they were the number one

25:41

xg in defense so this is a really good

25:45

team like this is not a joke they're not

25:47

going down they're gonna take some

25:49

scalps and they're gonna take their

25:51

lumps i think they're gonna if

25:53

if they play at home if the home crowd

25:55

matters they're going to get their games

25:57

at home like i see them

25:59

easily clearing the 40-point barrier the

26:01

same as leads oh no yeah i mean i'm i

26:03

forget exactly where i had them but i

26:05

had them close to mid-table so i have no

26:07

no reservations about where they'll end

26:10

up um

26:11

but i think the lasting image for this

26:13

game to me was again it had been seven

26:16

years

26:18

there you go yeah see so just about mid

26:20

table uh 70 years since their last

26:22

premier league game which ev

26:23

incidentally was also against arsenal

26:26

which is right

26:27

um

26:29

[ __ ] script writers man premier

26:31

league but yeah you see you know

26:33

the the hey jude version of like

26:35

brentford um you know

26:38

people crying you know singing

26:42

thomas frank who by the way

26:44

i'm in love with this man

26:46

he's a little too like bohemian he's got

26:48

the hair he's like

26:50

i'm all in it looks like a woman who's

26:51

transitioned to be fair well you know

26:53

what he looks unlike a lot of them he

26:55

actually looks like he's done it quite

26:57

elegantly um but

27:00

doing a lap

27:02

uh crapping the fans but going over to

27:05

to like the little girl and taking

27:06

pictures and just being so excited and

27:08

then the little boy

27:10

um

27:11

with like a special needs boy oh my god

27:13

it just

27:14

it'll it'll it'll get you choked up

27:16

right and it was amazing the one thing

27:19

that i talked about in in our facebook

27:21

group that i i just want to point out

27:23

because um

27:26

we talk about how media does a lot of

27:28

things poorly

27:29

but one of the best things they do in

27:31

those situations and it comes down

27:33

frankly

27:34

mostly to lady rebecca lowe from nbc's

27:37

coverage she's definitely she leads that

27:39

i think she gets the kind of like weight

27:42

and it is it is a

27:44

female quality she's just like no no

27:46

there's more to this than just let it

27:48

yeah so should it be let it breathe the

27:51

so yeah it's it's uh

27:53

arlo white kicks it back to the studio

27:55

rebecca go ahead and she just goes no

27:57

and just lets the scenes and the sounds

28:00

just overtake you right yes and and they

28:03

did it with spurs too but i've seen them

28:06

do that a number of times whereas in the

28:08

american sports realm you've got

28:11

and joe buck talking about how important

28:14

this is to the new york giants it's like

28:16

dude [ __ ] kill yourself stop and just

28:19

let us

28:20

soak it in if there was a subscription

28:22

service that

28:23

allowed american sports fans to forego

28:26

the commentary holy [ __ ] that's a

28:29

billion dollar idea they tried it and

28:31

people didn't watch it but that's okay

28:34

i think because they didn't

28:36

they didn't make it all the time

28:37

right yeah but

28:39

there are moments where

28:40

nothing says so much more than anything

28:43

you're thinking and

28:45

i just wish that

28:47

look

28:48

nobody's saying that american sports

28:51

fans or supporter groups or whatever are

28:55

like for like with what england has and

28:57

what europe has right of course not

28:59

but i do think that they're

29:02

much much better than us at highlighting

29:04

all of the best parts of that whereas

29:07

uh if if something special happens which

29:10

happens all the time in american sports

29:12

if you just let the scene sort of

29:14

breathe right

29:15

um give the call for whatever it is the

29:18

walk off home run the overtime goal the

29:20

buzzer beater and then just

29:23

just let it happen

29:25

right the sign

29:27

nbc is the i don't know how you felt

29:29

about their hockey coverage but horrible

29:31

by the way

29:33

whatever they they did bad on the

29:34

olympics but they somehow are doing

29:37

really well with the premier league

29:38

people are less into them of the last

29:41

few years i think some of the analysis

29:43

has gone out the window if they they've

29:45

relied and gone to the it's men united

29:47

it's arsenal they used to cover other

29:49

teams a little bit more and that's kind

29:50

of sucky but that moment was good they

29:53

really captured brentford really well

29:55

uh and fans make a difference man it is

29:57

like night and day and i mean i know

30:00

we're probably going to want to touch on

30:01

other games but i

30:03

you know i why i've just watched [ __ ]

30:06

you know brighton burnley i mean because

30:08

that's my my secret side piece team and

30:10

they came back from a goal down and it

30:12

went nuts and and the burnley crowd died

30:14

and it was just like oh god it's so

30:16

[ __ ] good

30:18

right then i text you like when the goal

30:20

went in for for kanos against brentford

30:22

i was like i am alive i have come back

30:25

to life i feel amazing like only

30:27

football does this i swear to christ

30:29

there's no way

30:31

that american sports have these moments

30:33

and i think it's

30:34

i still think fundamentally it is

30:36

because of so much that is riding on the

30:38

games

30:39

they've somehow created a narrative the

30:41

down and the up the you support your

30:44

local team more than anything the the

30:47

nature of

30:48

locality being so important i don't know

30:51

how they do it but it is captured

30:53

there's no like a pirate fan doesn't

30:55

care if they beat the yankees in a

30:56

three-game series because they still

30:58

suck and they're never going to win and

30:59

they'll be there tomorrow right well

31:01

that brentford

31:04

they have this game forever it is were

31:06

you there when we came up after 70 years

31:09

and we beat arsenal that'll be in the

31:11

annals of that team forever

31:15

it's just a thing right so we gotta we

31:18

gotta talk about other games so let's

31:19

talk about our both are both our evil

31:21

and hated well before we do that before

31:23

before we do that let's uh let's talk

31:25

about our friend joe

31:26

um

31:27

oh boy

31:29

i'm talking about joe um you know we

31:32

both try to save a lot of money uh and

31:34

and try to make smart financial

31:36

decisions and one of the things that's

31:38

made an inflection point and difference

31:40

in our lives is um you know joe at

31:43

attitude of gratitude consulting um it's

31:46

he's got a unique way of kind of uh

31:49

finding money in the couch cushions sort

31:50

of but it's it's

31:53

a family-centric way

31:56

of making sure you're taking you're

31:58

doing the right thing by you and yours

32:00

essentially um do yourselves a favor go

32:02

to

32:04

attitudeofgratitudeconsulting.com for

32:06

more information

32:07

what you'll see when you go there

32:09

is a phenomenally laid out website

32:11

really easy to use if uh if you see it

32:14

you basically you can make a phone phone

32:16

appointment with the guy the next day

32:18

uh he's always happy to hear from you

32:20

and jump on the phone with you um listen

32:22

to how you got yourself into whatever

32:25

financial predicament you're in

32:27

and more importantly help you find a way

32:28

out of it so um we are big fans of joe

32:31

and i know he's he's a big fan of the

32:32

show which is always good to know so um

32:36

he wasn't with me to stop me from buying

32:37

a useless electric bicycle and i should

32:40

have consulted him man you should have

32:42

consulted him um but yeah

32:44

http://www.thanks list it wasn't my fault

32:47

33:14

i lost this weekend uh i went three for

33:17

four and i think that's going to be a

33:19

segment on our preview episodes

33:21

yeah we're gonna we're gonna keep tabs

33:23

on mike's betting record over the course

33:25

of the year

33:26

and i didn't i didn't publicize all of

33:29

the picks but i did say i would bet on

33:31

brentford and i did

33:33

um

33:34

i called griffin i was like winning this

33:36

game

33:37

yeah yeah um but i i got i got cheeky

33:41

and i said you know what leads plus one

33:43

let's see

33:44

uh let's see what happens at old

33:46

trafford and you know what for about 60

33:48

seconds i was feeling pretty good in the

33:50

second half there um

33:54

really really put them to the sword

33:56

though

33:56

and it was such a fun 10 minutes and

33:59

it's right after half time because it

34:01

was one nothing going into half

34:03

and uh

34:04

what a i believe it was luke ayling with

34:07

an absolute thunderbolt

34:09

they were tied

34:10

all the goals were really good as much

34:12

they were all really really good goals

34:14

pogba was incredible

34:16

uh fernandez scored an offside goal last

34:19

year but now that we have fat lines he

34:21

was on side i didn't understand it still

34:23

but i think i'm i'm going to get it as

34:25

we go on like it doesn't matter i'd

34:26

rather give me the goals okay i don't

34:28

care

34:29

he scored a hat trick uh those were his

34:31

first open play goals since week 14.

34:34

let's just keep that in mind

34:36

[Laughter]

34:39

so just to keep in mind what kind of

34:40

player is he is incredible and he's

34:42

their talisman he scored good goals

34:45

greenwood scored a good goal and they

34:47

really just lit leads up like they did

34:49

last time with the um with the 6-2 at

34:51

old trafford and these are just a bad

34:53

matchup it's a bad matchup for for for

34:56

leeds because they play man-to-man they

34:58

run hard everywhere and united are too

35:02

good

35:03

of a team

35:05

to not be able to beat that type of

35:07

thing what me what united have the

35:08

problem with and they're not going to be

35:10

proven they're not going to be

35:11

challenged until someone sits deep and

35:13

makes you break them down that's what i

35:15

was hoping for that's what i was

35:16

expecting i think this season there's

35:18

less and less teams like that so united

35:20

may win the league because no one plays

35:23

the way to beat them i think nuno will i

35:25

think spurs will have their way with

35:26

united

35:27

because yeah i think that makes sense

35:29

i'm just like [ __ ] you i'm not pressing

35:31

you i'm not doing anything so um but

35:33

yeah united were we're just a class

35:35

above they like i said before

35:38

united probably have the most talented

35:40

team in the league they spent a billion

35:42

dollars on it it should they should win

35:44

so what are you

35:46

yeah we won

35:48

the league

35:49

yeah but nobody left and now you've got

35:50

grealish

35:52

no but what i'm saying is

35:54

what i'm saying is united haven't won

35:56

since:

35:58

the same right but the difference is

35:59

that

36:00

now we have a coach who's awesome and

36:02

ole is a clown

36:03

sure but what united have spent that

36:06

money

36:07

to get on par with you guys right so

36:11

they're they're in that conversation for

36:13

me there there really is there's four

36:14

teams that could win the title this year

36:17

yeah you know it's it's the obvious ones

36:19

it's you it's meant the united

36:21

city united chelsea and liverpool um

36:25

you were waiting for me to say tottenham

36:27

where are you no no no and then but but

36:29

then if you rank it it's city is never

36:31

city when city doesn't win the league

36:33

it's their failures and cost too much

36:34

money when they win they're supposed to

36:36

win so we can't win no matter what we do

36:38

chelsea

36:39

have a good coach are completely

36:40

reloaded liverpool are still there

36:44

i they're long in the tooth in my view

36:46

and then united are the upstart who will

36:48

not win the league with only as a

36:49

manager

36:53

i don't even have them in the top four

36:55

so yeah how about that right if they had

36:57

benitez they'd win the [ __ ] league

36:58

but like you said it too

37:00

they are always off the occasion they're

37:02

always ready for the big games they'll

37:04

kick the [ __ ] out of leeds in the first

37:05

game at old trafford with fans in two

37:07

years every they may win like let's say

37:11

you know against top six that's i can't

37:13

even do the math

37:14

six times six 36 points they might get

37:17

26 points out of those right right they

37:20

still won't win the league actually if

37:21

they get 26 out of those they'll

37:22

probably win a league but they could win

37:23

the top six table let's say right right

37:25

right

37:26

they're going to lose because they're

37:28

going to lose to brentford the guy

37:30

yeah because they're going to lose

37:32

because allen's saying maximum is going

37:33

to [ __ ] light them up right or

37:35

actually wambasaka will be like the [ __ ]

37:37

out here with that [ __ ] right

37:40

but but but but they'll drop points at

37:42

norwich

37:43

yeah they'll lose to nourish like

37:45

something's dumb but the thing is those

37:47

teams there aren't enough teams that

37:48

play that like for like there aren't

37:50

enough burnley types anymore so it may

37:53

be breaking in their favor like all the

37:55

teams that went down were kind of gross

37:57

right now we've got like more like when

37:59

allardyce goes down that's good right

38:01

because he plays that negative kind of

38:04

dark

38:04

all-time football but there's much more

38:06

attacking teams now and we'll see if

38:08

that actually helps united and if they

38:10

won the league it wouldn't be a shock

38:12

right like oh no no wow and then i'd

38:14

have to be like i guess ola is a good

38:15

manager i just believe it when i see it

38:18

because he's gonna choke that's gonna be

38:20

the next no that'll be it that'll be the

38:21

next shirt we we have it'll just be you

38:23

being like olly in

38:26

yeah

38:27

question mark

38:28

and then the other game that i thought

38:29

was really good of course i want to talk

38:31

burnley brighton but i'm not going to

38:33

it's really not an important game but

38:34

the the west ham uh newcastle game was

38:37

[ __ ]

38:38

bonkers that was wild what a fun game

38:41

yeah

38:43

right they're good end to end you know

38:45

max

38:46

say maximum doing his like

38:48

yo my g what is

38:51

that on the wing outside the box

38:54

step over spin step over back and forth

38:57

up and down and then just chips across

38:59

it felt like he did it a rabona it

39:01

wasn't but he he would do it

39:05

and wilson's on the end of it i just

39:06

don't

39:07

like is there a player that's more fun

39:09

even if you uh you were on his team

39:11

you'd like you know what dude the [ __ ]

39:13

out of here with that will you just pass

39:14

it without we sold the player who was

39:16

who was as fun as him

39:18

it was eric lamela was the only one

39:20

because he was the most unpredictable

39:21

player in the league but now that he's

39:23

gone i would say it's definitely st

39:25

maximum

39:26

yeah yeah yeah yeah i mean erickson is

39:29

is that type i mean sorry lamela is that

39:31

type of player and grealish has that

39:33

swag too where he slows down you're like

39:35

dude are you are we really slowing

39:37

british i'll tell you what apparently

39:38

looks like a [ __ ] jamie tart these days

39:40

yeah

39:41

carlos hill is supposed to be a winger

39:43

who takes people on for fun and then

39:45

brings them back after he goes past them

39:47

so maybe he's uh maybe he's that maybe

39:49

he's like anorexic hazard is what you're

39:52

getting oh

39:53

okay

39:55

that's what i've heard so maybe when

39:57

hill comes in

39:58

you'll play you'll use him

40:00

in games when oh brian hill

40:02

brian hill yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

40:05

carlos did mls i was gonna say that

40:07

threw me off yeah brian hill um there's

40:10

a lot to see with with him so far i mean

40:12

he's he's a baby still but he's hot in

40:14

here

40:16

he's

40:17

basically looks like a pencil with with

40:19

someone who put hair on the top but yeah

40:21

the newcastle game was [ __ ] up and

40:23

down

40:24

uh i would venture to say

40:26

and i'm not saying something crazy here

40:28

but is michael antonio like the most

40:30

underrated player in the premier league

40:33

that dude no

40:34

i mean he's

40:35

batters

40:36

tries to score does whatever it takes

40:39

for the team to win

40:40

and he's just like an afterthought like

40:43

wouldn't england be better with him up

40:46

front sometimes

40:48

i don't know

40:49

he

40:49

he would be what

40:53

giroud was to chelsea and france

40:57

yeah that's that's the role he could

40:59

play for england right where he comes in

41:01

on the 75th minute and is just

41:04

like just showing up elbows out like

41:06

just smashing people around who are

41:09

already tired

41:10

and he's just running

41:12

totally free like yeah i think he would

41:14

definitely have a part to play in

41:15

england by the way are you ready for the

41:16

st maximon uh stats back it up

41:19

yeah go for it attempted dribbles eight

41:22

successful seven that is

41:25

more than the next three players

41:27

combined

41:29

okay

41:30

actually he had more dribbles than all

41:33

of newcastle combined the new castle

41:35

combined had six

41:37

and uh

41:39

they had yeah there was jared bonin ben

41:42

rama i'd like to call out my uh

41:44

prediction been rama having a big season

41:46

he's on the score sheet and he assists

41:49

in antonio so i caught a call called it

41:52

i knew he was good again brentford

41:54

scouting uh and and i'm excited about

41:56

that but this game was fun second half

41:58

[ __ ] west ham just puts the metal

42:01

down scores four unanswered goals and

42:04

that was crazy game away including a

42:06

miss penalty

42:07

right sorry three unanswered goals with

42:09

a missed penalty sue check suck was just

42:12

so anticipatory he's literally running

42:14

straight towards the goal on antonio's

42:17

run up because he he gave himself a

42:19

little breathing room just a fun team

42:22

the league is just in such good hands

42:24

right now like it's just it just feels

42:25

like

42:27

it feels like there's

42:28

not really any teams that we want to go

42:30

down aside from burnley and maybe

42:32

newcastle where you're just like you

42:33

know i'm done with you guys

42:35

and then the third team is gonna it's

42:36

gonna be like pour one out for those

42:38

guys whether it's norwich or watford or

42:40

something like that but

42:41

i don't this is the other i don't think

42:43

newcastle will go down

42:45

no well

42:46

nonetheless right but like the point is

42:48

is that we are going to be bummed to see

42:50

a team go down whereas

42:53

last year we felt bad for fulham but

42:55

we're like yeah you guys don't really

42:56

belong here so it's fine um but i think

43:00

that sheffield was the one that was a

43:01

drag because it's like and sheffield too

43:03

they deserve to have time with fans they

43:05

got no fans right in the premier league

43:08

they did

43:09

that's wrong no they get yeah they got

43:11

like six months right not no like four

43:13

months

43:14

barely any time

43:16

that's so yours was what was your other

43:18

game you want to talk about you want to

43:19

talk about yeah there's one other one

43:20

that i want to um that was honestly

43:22

probably the biggest surprising game a

43:24

result of the weekend was watford three

43:27

aston villa two

43:29

right

43:30

the thing we talked about a lot was how

43:32

well aston villa reloaded using the jack

43:35

reelish money bringing in blendia

43:37

bringing in bailey bringing in ings

43:40

um

43:42

maybe by some defense gentlemen we just

43:45

lost to watford

43:48

not that now ismailiosar was strong was

43:51

it had a good performance and he's a

43:54

he's a very good player

43:56

who

43:57

carried them last season

43:58

he he did

44:00

and in his initial

44:02

um premier league i guess cameo uh in

44:05

their last relegated season he was sort

44:08

of a ghost and so

44:10

granted he's two years older

44:12

yeah right but he's and he's two years

44:14

older now and he's he's sort of the guy

44:16

and it's it's interesting to kind of see

44:18

him kind of come of age um

44:21

but i gotta say i did not watch a lot of

44:24

this when i got obviously got the

44:25

highlights but um this and that's one

44:28

other thing just as a quick aside that i

44:30

i give nbc a lot of [ __ ] but the

44:32

extended highlights is fantastic it's 10

44:35

minutes long and you're like okay i got

44:37

everything that happened in this game

44:39

you know um yeah

44:41

but yeah so i mean one person

44:44

it was a big game i i don't know i mean

44:47

you know they didn't pass it

44:49

particularly well

44:50

uh defensively you are correct

44:53

that you know

44:55

aston villa needs sorry aston villa

44:57

needs to be better at preventing shots

44:59

yeah i don't remember uh nakamba in the

45:02

midfield or mcginn kind of being great

45:04

defensive players so

45:06

historically kansa and mings have been

45:08

really good kansa is more of the

45:10

defender who doesn't touch anything and

45:11

just kind of breaks things up and ming's

45:13

being the left footer who kind of plays

45:15

the ball but i thought that you know

45:17

aston villa coming back into the game

45:19

was good they got a goal late they got a

45:21

penalty from danny ings he gets off to

45:23

schneider and underscore that one was

45:24

that was like the 95th minute though

45:26

almost can kind of can't get that 97

45:29

right but i mean they did grow into the

45:31

game and in the back half yeah

45:33

the last

45:34

the last 15 minutes was all was all

45:38

was all um

45:39

was all aston villa second half they

45:41

didn't really yeah but it was it was

45:42

three nothing by the time they got their

45:44

asses in gear it was three nil so yeah

45:47

yeah that was they only had only his

45:49

name he only had two shots and

45:51

and and um

45:53

watford were already up too so

45:55

kind of tricky the star goal was

45:56

deflected we you know our guy emmy

45:58

martinez did not cover himself in glory

46:01

but i don't think he really had a chance

46:02

to

46:04

phyllis season is not going to be judged

46:06

on this

46:07

but it is a weird

46:08

result when uh tom

46:10

tom cleverley is bossing you uh

46:13

yeah that was the thing and just the way

46:15

in which they lost is i mean

46:17

again the three conceded isn't great but

46:19

um

46:21

to give up 13 shots with 37 possession

46:24

or to concede 37 percent possession

46:28

and 13 shots is a little bit strange um

46:32

yeah so that's not good

46:34

yeah i i i'm worried a bit for villa uh

46:37

i still love it

46:38

they had a tough back half of the season

46:40

now granted they didn't have greelish so

46:43

they do have to adjust i mean it is a

46:44

lot like i don't think people really

46:47

realize

46:48

how much offensive creation grealish was

46:51

doing he missed no no see that's the

46:53

thing

46:54

he missed 15 games and led the league in

46:56

shock creation

46:58

i think i think of course they're not

47:00

going to be able to

47:01

replace him overnight i think they're

47:03

going to be okay

47:04

as far as his productivity especially

47:07

because like you said he was injured in

47:09

the back half of the season so

47:11

i'm not as concerned with that but the

47:13

thing that i did forget and the thing

47:16

that's easy to forget is that you know

47:18

you basically look at these the sexy new

47:20

things walking through the door and

47:21

you're like oh let's go talk about that

47:23

you sort of paper over the cracks that

47:25

sort of existed already right

47:27

all you did was

47:29

try to replace jack reelish

47:32

you didn't make the rest of the team any

47:34

better

47:35

and so that's the thing where

47:37

let's assume

47:38

it was let's assume that you did all

47:40

right right but let's assume that you

47:42

did let's assume that you made uh

47:45

you you took greelish out and you put

47:47

two and a half players in his place and

47:49

and you even improved the team let's say

47:52

for argentina

47:53

yeah you still have suspect in you know

47:57

a suspect midfield behind that um like

47:59

you said the back line is okay the

48:01

fullback's

48:02

questionable

48:04

and and obviously emmy martin is

48:06

would we be surprised if he took a step

48:09

back from last year he was phenomenal

48:12

it's luck right otherwise why would

48:13

arsenal have sold him they must know

48:15

something they're not complaining see i

48:17

don't buy that

48:18

no i think they just gave leno a [ __ ]

48:20

out of money and they were like well i

48:21

guess we're going to sell this other

48:22

argentinian fella um

48:25

but no i i i think that there's

48:28

there's a wobble there that i didn't

48:30

expect to see early on and

48:32

um that could that could get bad so

48:36

i haven't seen what their upcoming

48:37

fixtures are to be fair

48:41

well that's the thing is that if you

48:43

you know if you lose to a team like that

48:45

you probably no that's okay well yeah

48:47

okay they've got new castle brentford

48:50

chelsea everton united spurs

48:54

yeah but everything schedules are pretty

48:56

pretty rough there's a lot of good teams

48:58

man it's just [ __ ] every week that's

49:00

the premier league it is that is that is

49:02

the fact that yeah so i mean i i want to

49:04

give some some sort of call outs chelsea

49:07

really handled palace well chalabah's

49:09

goal was

49:11

[ __ ] amazing uh uh

49:14

marcus alonso on a free kick and they

49:15

cruise with a goal from pulisic that was

49:18

really a mason mount goal uh he started

49:21

it he won the tackle he didn't see that

49:23

did the gibbon go and then sort of

49:25

pulisic scored on a rebound so

49:27

i'm not going to go with the american

49:29

narrative the the american people were

49:31

on my case because i was like that was

49:32

mason mount's goal he got it because it

49:34

was like american like you know what

49:36

[ __ ] chris and fellowsic uh in their

49:38

best their best 11 is not going to

49:39

include him um

49:41

uh uh the the martinez era started

49:45

really well for everton they led the

49:47

led the week in expected goals against

49:49

southampton southampton are in trouble

49:51

it's official we are putting the [ __ ]

49:53

sign out that this team is in [ __ ]

49:55

trouble you know

49:56

the weirdest thing is that they were

49:58

winning this game at halftime and i went

50:00

oh everton's gonna win

50:02

i've never gotten

50:03

adam's i called it scored a goal so that

50:05

felt good

50:07

so he of the 28 goals in the

50:09

championship he's a tiny little guy a

50:11

five foot seven striker so he needs to

50:13

get on the ball he's not going to be

50:14

winning headers he's a tiny little like

50:16

a

50:17

little craft and technician in the in

50:19

this field but if if ward prowse leaves

50:22

they're done

50:24

they're really living on like genopo and

50:26

theo walcott are there for creativity on

50:28

the wings and they've got that 442 but

50:31

it's it's not it's not gonna look good

50:34

there you go and real quick

50:35

we talked about how sneaky good of a

50:37

signing it was for lester what we didn't

50:40

talk about was the hole that left in the

50:42

middle of south america's back line

50:46

yeah not being there i think i think

50:47

they're they're just being like

50:49

let's let's cash out for this season

50:53

get the money for the players we've got

50:55

go down

50:56

consolidate the it sounds it sounds to

50:59

me like they're in there like very

51:01

strategic hey the pandemic murdered us

51:04

we're still in the premier league let's

51:06

sell our players they're getting old and

51:08

let's reload go down and figure out not

51:11

that any team would do that on purpose

51:13

but maybe they're going hey ralph you

51:15

got this because we're going to need you

51:17

so maybe they'll just fight it out maybe

51:19

they'll be like maybe they'll just be

51:21

like they're doing a calculation like

51:23

we're gonna be better than three other

51:24

teams but i don't know who those three

51:26

other teams are

51:28

that's yeah right yeah

51:30

i think it's like they're looking at

51:32

they're looking at norwich going

51:34

[ __ ] we're better than them

51:35

[Laughter]

51:37

right yeah they got to be looking at

51:39

because they're not like you look at the

51:41

list here and it's like

51:43

you

51:44

better [ __ ] like crystal palace i

51:46

think is is probably a danger team now

51:48

they think about it

51:50

norwich obviously

51:51

i don't i don't worry about leads

51:53

because they have a good manager burn

51:55

burnley i

51:56

i worry about burnley but dice

51:59

finds a way he finds it yeah he finds

52:01

like they're in like you know but we

52:04

talked about it now i know we talked

52:06

about it but it's now

52:09

seven six six years in a row like they

52:11

haven't gone down in a really long time

52:13

they've been uh it's in the way

52:17

you had them at 12. so

52:20

the way i see it is there's there's five

52:22

to six contenders right there's yeah but

52:24

that was the four investigators now i'm

52:25

like oh [ __ ]

52:26

yeah that's true once i changed my mind

52:28

i was filling it out and they were the

52:30

one that was left i was like yeah 12.

52:31

because it's no different

52:34

i wasn't like overthinking like where

52:36

they were going to be they were just

52:37

there i was like oh i didn't feel the

52:38

12th spot yet it could be leads it could

52:41

be it could be everything i don't know

52:42

who the [ __ ] it's going to be because

52:43

you know how like we talked about from

52:45

like 11 to 25 they're all the same

52:49

but i i do trust in hassenhutto but if

52:51

they're gonna if they're gonna be

52:52

cashing out and just be like yeah we're

52:54

reloading

52:55

then i'm worried right

52:57

yeah yeah i mean there's a lot to happen

53:00

in the next 14 days 15 days 15 days uh

53:03

before the transfer window shuts and

53:05

and it's not just southampton it's spurs

53:07

it's city it's there's a lot of teams

53:09

arsenal needs to find a striker which by

53:10

the way is a quick aside tammy abraham

53:12

reportedly already on his way to roma

53:15

why the [ __ ] didn't arsenal buy him that

53:17

doesn't make any sense well chelsea may

53:19

not have chelsea may not have sold it to

53:21

him they wouldn't have given a [ __ ]

53:23

they do well they already sold willian

53:25

they probably knew he was [ __ ] like they

53:27

let they're not going to let a good

53:29

asset go you know what i mean

53:31

yeah i guess i know if i'm

53:34

i wouldn't go anywhere near [ __ ]

53:37

mourinho if i was a player i know i got

53:39

a lot for him though that's the thing

53:40

that's annoying it's like 40 million

53:42

yeah oh no their their

53:44

their net spend is is even

53:47

and they spent a hundred million on one

53:48

players that's that [ __ ] lone army

53:50

man they got all those dudes out there

53:53

and they showcased them and they sell

53:55

them for [ __ ] good money i don't know

53:57

i think that the woman's name is marina

53:58

some russian operator rush marina

54:02

mitch uh she's really good at running

54:05

that team i don't know

54:06

who she is i don't know what her plan is

54:08

but whatever chelsea system is it is

54:12

working they don't spend money that they

54:15

don't have but they do spend on young

54:18

players and they win and they win and

54:20

they win and listen

54:22

i also respect the woman's side this is

54:24

the thing that pisses me off when people

54:25

kill all those our teams like psg and

54:29

the oil teams they do a lot of good [ __ ]

54:31

like they're running it right

54:34

what do you want me to do

54:37

like united basically [ __ ] ditched

54:39

their women's team scumbags they [ __ ]

54:43

really apart yep

54:45

like for this left

54:47

they gutted it

54:50

that gross

54:51

that's awful

54:52

it's like it's kind of weird it costs

54:54

nothing it's the [ __ ] laundry bill

54:58

54:59

55:01

55:19

will be chelsea arsenal that's a [ __ ]

55:22

win or go home for arsenal like it's a

55:24

whole [ __ ] crisis and then they've

55:26
