three to four minutes

00:30

of tottenham fandom since the iax lucas

moore miracle in:

00:36

even close to an exaggeration it has

00:39

00:43

and uh it was that moment of

00:46

of just invincibility you're like oh my

00:48

01:10

expected goals depending on what site

01:35

getting

01:36

uh

01:37

miraculously it felt unbelievable

01:40

has caught a lot of [ __ ] from tottenham

01:42

has caught a lot of [ __ ] on this show

01:44

hoy beer was amazing matt doherty

01:48

fantastic for 45 minutes

01:50

so uh i don't think royal's gonna play

01:52

again he may not and and there's

01:55

anything it's not good

01:57

just everything finally started to click

01:59

a little bit

02:00

in that game like i said five expected

02:02

goals through the whole 90 minutes now i

02:04

was listening

02:06

about how lester found their way to the

02:08

back of the net twice

02:10

uh that's still same old tottenham

02:12

you were both spursy and anti-spursy in

02:15

the same game and there's multiple

02:17

videos of the the difference between

02:19

like the sections between uh the end of

02:22

the away support and come on in

02:25

all right we've got a guest host

02:28

uh

02:29

he's gonna need headphones he's gonna

02:30

need headphones well he can have one of

02:31

mine

02:33

hey brother how are you my brother chris

02:36

good day sir um yeah so going through

02:39

the tottenham game we're talking about

02:40

the tottenham game we are uh

02:43

we're trying to figure out how

02:45

how that happened

02:47

and then at the same time like like at

02:49

the line i saw multiple videos at the

02:51

line of the away support

02:53

there's lester fans like [ __ ] you you

02:55

[ __ ] bottlers and in the same second

02:57

of the video the guy turns the camera

03:00

and bergvine is played in by kane and

03:03

the guy literally you see his soul leave

03:04

his [ __ ] body and it's fantastic

03:07

that's fantastic so but i do i do want

03:09

to i mean a lot there hugo laura signs a

03:11

two-year contract i think it was two

03:13

years yeah uh there's a lot of hope in

03:15

tottenham and as i look at the schedule

03:18

they [ __ ] have to go to stanford

03:20

bridge again on sunday why are you

03:21

afraid of chelsea we'll get we'll get

03:22

into chelsea i'm not afraid of them i'm

03:24

just tired let me

03:25

let me right but let me go through the

03:27

scores there were there are a handful of

03:29

midweek scores that we have to color

03:32

first burnley watford is canceled again

03:34

burnley have five games in hand my

03:36

beloved brighton put the [ __ ] whoop

03:39

onto chelsea at home 1-1 draw a

03:43

thundering header from the best team

03:44

still no one respects even though

03:46

expected goals say it wasn't close it

03:48

was close brighton were good chelsea's

03:50

still not good we just discussed it

03:52

lester two bro spurs three lester are

03:56

terrible daca scored which is nice

03:59

madison scored which was nice so yenshu

04:01

is the best worst player i've ever seen

04:04

collapse into nothing faster than i

04:06

don't know and then brentford won

04:09

manchester united three

04:12

branford was so so good in the first

04:14

half they did exactly what we wanted

04:16

them to do they got that 25 minutes of

04:18

thunder they did everything they were

04:20

supposed to but united simply are better

04:23

i had a thought about this and brentford

04:26

are clearly trying to do finishes for

04:29

precision and not power and that hurt

04:32

them in this game and i think that is

04:34

like

04:35

wrapping up week 16 and week 24. there's

04:39

a lot of things being mixed together we

04:40

don't know what week of the season we're

04:42

in we're catching up with games we're

04:44

gonna have midweek games the rest of the

04:46

season but

04:48

let us get deeper a little bit into

04:51

spurs before we go to

04:54

i think liverpool arsenal goes it is the

04:56

right path what i really liked about

04:58

this and you mentioned it is hoiberg

05:01

passing

05:02

forward

05:03

yeah finally

05:04

like right

05:06

but but what i noticed was remember we

05:08

talked about winks the same way

05:11

kante getting into them that it's if you

05:15

pass this ball sideways

05:17

one more [ __ ] time i'm gonna kick you

05:20

so hard up the ass i'm gonna pull my wig

05:23

out of your mouth

05:24

do you know what i mean like he's just

05:26

enough

05:27

just we're better than these people go

05:30

get them that's soyensu he's terrible

05:33

kick his ass again by the way we talked

05:36

about this 10 weeks ago

05:40

[ __ ] peter schmeichel is the problem

05:43

no one wants to say it

05:45

peter and casper all the schmeichel's

05:48

peter taught him the problem

05:50

whatever he's old he gives up goals i

05:53

don't know where he was going with burg

05:55

wine

05:56

um i don't think that well his hesitancy

05:58

was the problem right as soon as kane

06:00

plays that ball if you come off your

06:01

line you probably get there but here's

06:03

the thing like a back four

06:07

lives first from their goalkeeper that's

06:10

the first thing you need

06:11

sure right okay and it's clear there's

06:14

something wrong and maybe it's because

06:16

they know they've defended balls that

06:19

schmeichel has stopped before that he no

06:22

longer stops well it takes an adjustment

06:24

period right you're like you assume that

06:26

that is effectively

06:28

a chance that's squashed right and

06:30

you're like all right that's you know i

06:32

don't almo you put it out of your mind

06:34

and also at the same time bergvine's

06:35

coming on and he's

06:37

totally fresh he's finally had 50

06:39

minutes warm up and he like king just

06:41

said go get it yeah and the other thing

06:42

is i will be fair like this isn't the

06:44

game to pick on schmeichel he made like

06:46

47 saves no he was great

06:48

he was actually quite good in this game

06:49

and he but you're right but

06:50

statistically this year he has not been

06:52

very good at all yeah um so actually

06:54

quick

06:55

i have never looked at the stats of him

06:58

historically but in those years when

06:59

lester was really performing was he

07:02

having one of those years where he was

07:03

performing whatever he did he expected

07:05

goals against he was doing much they

07:07

don't i don't think they have it that

07:08

far back he's been historically good but

07:11

this season he has been bad

07:13

all right yeah

07:14

that's the best and the best goalkeeper

07:16

is jose saw by a lot like it's like yeah

07:19

no and he's he's got wolves in games

07:22

almost by himself well

07:24

refuses to have more than a goal in the

07:26

entire game right period like no all

07:28

right so lester are minus three and a

07:30

half which isn't too bad they were worse

07:31

they've gotten better so maybe

07:33

schmeichel's gotten better but now de

07:35

gea is now at plus 10.

07:39

he's having a renaissance here too

07:40

though i mean yeah and we talked about

07:42

it how i picked him uh in in our what

07:45

halfway team of the season for for

07:47

keeper of the year yeah and i i get the

07:49

ramsdell hype uh because he wears a

07:52

gunner shirt and he's in the

07:53

conversation but the correct answer is

07:56

saw i

08:02

right right right but no i mean

08:04

and if you were what we probably should

08:06

have done by the way was have the best

08:08

and the worst 11 of the year and we

08:11

should do that

08:12

did you notice that brentford ditched

08:13

their goalkeeper that i said sucked yes

08:16

yeah they

08:17

brentford big fans of the show obviously

08:20

yeah i was like yeah this guy's not good

08:22

he's got to go no who was it there well

08:25

their their starter got hurt and you

08:27

called it up right away you can draw a

08:29

straight line

08:30

between their ascendancy that injury and

08:33

their frankly current form and we're

08:35

going two three months later on this so

08:38

they'll be fine

08:43

nobody knows anyone's names on brentford

08:45

it's okay if we don't know their names i

08:46

know all right i know brian i know brian

08:48

bueno has hit the post 47 times yeah and

08:52

that's the key thing that i know and

08:54

that they don't shoot hard they all were

08:56

doing side-footed shots yeah and they

08:57

have four danish people in the midfield

08:59

now it's a little too much for me that's

09:01

that's too much too much too many danish

09:03

uh and there was interesting

09:05

chris actually saw the end of that game

09:07

it was three mil united and bredford

09:09

scored a late kind of consolation goal

09:11

what was the line that peter drury had

09:13

oh it was devastating

09:15

he gets all excited and he just goes oh

09:18

and there it is and so during the day

09:20

i'm

09:21

looking at my computer so i don't know

09:23

how much time is left in the clock

09:24

there it is and brentford has

09:27

a marginal interest and i was just like

09:30

oh

09:32

oh

09:33

jury one of the old times yeah but they

09:36

they they got they got a goal they

09:38

deserved i think the thing for brentford

09:39

is and we can we can just slip into that

09:41

game it's just united played badly in

09:43

the first half and could have easily

09:45

been losing

09:47

by a lot like they hit the post twice i

09:50

think

09:50

uh you know de gea again saving their

09:53

ass and they're just not quite in the

09:56

right space i think rangnick is figuring

10:00

out he can't play

10:02

the deuces wild formation which i'm

10:04

calling it because i want to put some

10:05

american food

10:07

yeah some american football style would

10:09

do running deuces wild uh but and he has

10:12

figured out if i'm gonna play ronaldo i

10:15

gotta have people running with him so he

10:17

put alanga and greenwood in elanga is a

10:20

runner this is the thing that united

10:24

under

10:24

woodward had had to have not been able

10:26

to figure out it's

10:28

if you don't have guys who work or your

10:30

super size don't work you have to put

10:33

guys who work in like the first thing a

10:35

player needs to do is work if you have

10:37

all all class all flash you lose so he's

10:41

finding guys who will work and have

10:43

enough quality to get you know rashford

10:47

sancho sancho you can't play until you

10:49

run like alanga right and what do we i

10:52

mean it's not quite it's sort of the

10:54

it's like one level above what we always

10:56

call englishness on the show right like

10:58

like it's it's the

11:00

the get stuck in the piece where you

11:02

need to go get the ball win the 50 50 so

11:05

that you can free ronaldo or greenwood

11:06

or whoever on the wing right the middle

11:08

jean the milliner jean that's actually a

11:10

good we might use that football cliches

11:13

are in there is truth you earn the right

11:16

to play you've got to run you've got to

11:19

win 50 50s then you can go do your thing

11:22

and that's what uh my guy cucarella you

11:24

want kookarella on spurs please fine yes

11:27

please please go watch go go everyone go

11:30

look at brighton games and watch

11:31

kookarella and lame team

11:35

i would take lansi but we'll see maybe

11:37

everyone else in europe maybe uh maybe

11:39

not chelsea they let him go they just

11:41

ditched his ass yeah by the way i was

11:43

watching uh i was watching the espn show

11:45

that i know you think i'm [ __ ] for

11:46

watching but i watch it anyway uh what

11:48

craig burley yeah and burly stops in the

11:50

middle of it and he's just like talking

11:52

about chelsea being bad and he takes a

11:53

beat and he goes

11:56

they had de bruyne and salah

12:00

you said that today yeah we're so really

12:02

just talking about it i saw um in

12:04

passing

12:06

either i don't know if it's in effect or

12:07

being floated a rule of a cap of a man

12:09

alone they're trying to work on it yes

12:11

yeah so and i was just making the point

12:13

of how i'm in favor of it

12:16

it is it is only to international you

12:19

can't loan internationally you have to

12:21

keep them internally but fifa will then

12:24

try to sort of force the countries to do

12:28

that think the thing that's crazy about

12:30

in the right direction it seems like of

12:32

and that's a biased statement to be fair

12:34

like whether you agree with that or not

12:37

my point was i felt that the current

12:39

system allowed for

12:42

just kind of an abuse of

12:44

the example of letting de bruyne and

12:46

salad go while also stunting the growth

12:48

of how many other players

12:50

i don't know i like the

12:54

deregulated nature of football and i

12:56

don't like the idea of fifa telling the

12:59

world how to

13:01

manage their leagues [ __ ] you

13:04

we do it how we do it okay here's

13:06

another way to come for the fa as

13:07

opposed to

13:09

right if it's if it's you don't don't

13:11

tell me how to [ __ ] run my league

13:13

that's fair because i think about it in

13:15

terms of like weird mls things like don

13:17

garber is always like

13:18

if [ __ ] roger goodell had to deal

13:21

with a governing body that was two

13:24

levels up from my league he would lose

13:26

his mind like the idea that fifa's rules

13:29

can affect the mls they're just like

13:30

[ __ ] you it's my goddamn league in my

13:33

country i want to do what the [ __ ] i

13:34

want we're having goddamn shootouts and

13:36

the clock's going the other way

13:39

this is how we do it right and it

13:41

doesn't work of course but anyway uh we

13:43

should probably get into liverpool

13:45

arsenal

13:46

again

13:52

liverpool fan who had the first 15

13:54

minutes arsenal i'd say they definitely

13:56

did yeah no they were they came out hot

13:58

that was yeah absolutely i'll let you

14:00

take the floor there liverpool fan yeah

14:01

no so they came out hot martinelli

14:05

mit proved

14:06

all the trent haters correct on his

14:08

defense for the first 15 minutes it was

14:10

just which is that yeah

14:13

and i'm not i'm not defending it

14:16

i don't like when he's one-on-one put it

14:18

that way

14:19

you can see it's a there's a basketball

14:21

thing you can see it he doesn't get in a

14:23

stance he's too upright he's hesitant

14:25

he's he's literally like what's this guy

14:27

gonna do everything no he stands he's

14:29

way too upright he's not on his toes and

14:31

guys just go past him yeah he listen it

14:34

doesn't mean you don't play him he's

14:36

[ __ ] incredible yeah i know but the

14:38

people who are like he's flawless like

14:39

guys come on he's very nice

14:42

and he moved it in both the goals

14:44

incredible passes just like get the [ __ ]

14:47

out of here yeah it did also how about

14:49

that tiago

14:51

yeah um

14:52

i had said earlier i was kind of making

14:55

the point of he reminded me of when

14:57

money had came over and just after a

15:00

while like

15:01

i don't know i'm always a little

15:02

hesitant to jump on the new signing like

15:04

oh this guy scored a couple goals right

15:06

away he like i just always hate that

15:07

kind of perspective

15:09

and

15:10

jota just

15:11

for probably what 12 18 months just

15:13

consistent performances went healthy and

15:16

doing everything kind of talk about

15:18

making all the runs and doing everything

15:20

you need absolutely love them so i have

15:22

i have an interesting thought so so we

15:24

know arsenal are through the moment the

15:26

momentum we talked about with oh sorry

15:28

liverpool are through to the final yep

15:31

the final okay again potentially chelsea

15:34

against chelsea yeah that'll be

15:36

that would have been tough a month ago

15:38

now i don't think it's so tough uh

15:39

depending on when salah and money come

15:41

back but i have a big question for you

15:44

you have that front three of firmino

15:46

mana and saleh salah

15:48

they're on over five years together

15:50

unheard of no three players have played

15:52

together up front like that

15:54

ever

15:55

it's bizarre

15:56

it's like the core four

15:58

time it would be if like those guys had

16:00

played even longer like 20 years

16:01

together

16:03

who should go

16:05

with the knowing that you have jyota

16:08

um

16:09

to be honest i don't think there's a

16:11

right answer because i think it's

16:13

there's an i know the answer

16:16

no because i think you keep i think you

16:18

turn it into a four-man committee

16:20

exactly basically what they're doing

16:22

and then firmino eventually is the one

16:24

who bites the dust unless you can get

16:26

you're not going to get any market value

16:27

for any of them at this point really are

16:29

you kidding worth no you're going to

16:31

you'll get it for solo or money but i

16:33

was like obviously not marketing that's

16:34

worth getting rid of i don't want no

16:36

they're not worth no no no they're not

16:37

willing to lose for me no now but it's

16:40

not going to get anything

16:41

i think it's the other way around i

16:43

think the money is the is the weak link

16:45

and i think that bobby is not even

16:48

though he doesn't score he's really

16:50

the midfield number 10 linchpin that you

16:53

don't know you have that you need

16:55

because when he's not playing you don't

16:56

create anything the reason i don't agree

16:58

with that as much is i don't think that

17:01

our 433 works in the way of having the

17:05

number 10 linchpin the way it did when

17:06

we won the champions league that was how

17:08

our offense operated we don't work like

17:11

that as much anymore we're going back to

17:13

the:

17:17

so i totally hear you but right the one

17:19

that was the one that was the team that

17:21

couldn't defend and would just play up

17:22

and down oh how fun was that man

17:26

it was like the:

17:28

saying all the time yeah oh man yeah i

17:32

you're not i'm

17:33

you're 20 points behind just don't worry

17:35

about it you're fine don't enjoy it

17:37

enjoy it we were saying this the other

17:38

day i mean liverpool and i think there's

17:40

there's nobody who's gonna win i live in

17:42

the city no it's like they're a cup team

17:44

and it's not it's not a knock on them

17:45

it's not a knock on chelsea exactly but

17:47

they're a cup team now and and so now

17:49

you've got two who's who who's a cup

17:51

team now liverpool well frankly [ __ ]

17:53

everybody except for city

17:55

uh liverpool and chelsea specifically

17:57

right because they're in all three con

17:59

competitions liverpool and chelsea are

18:00

literally already in the final in one of

18:02

them they're all they're both i think

18:04

they have advantageous matchups in the

18:05

round of 16 in the gym no we did until

18:07

they redid it and we got injured that's

18:08

correct wow i mean come on i mean i'm

18:10

not actually salty about it it's the way

18:11

you teed it up like well sure sure

18:14

but yeah i mean so

18:16

the thing is is like even with this

18:20

sort of sputtering chelsea

18:22

and

18:23

sputtering liverpool more due to the the

18:25

african cup of nations and who knows if

18:28

if van dijk ever got to 100 and all the

18:30

things that happened whatever the

18:32

midfield basically disappearing because

18:34

milner and henderson should never ever

18:37

ever play together and they do sometimes

18:39

which is baffling um but i think they i

18:42

think that liverp we've talked about it

18:43

a million times i'm sure mike's brought

18:44

it up liverpool's 11 plus anfield is the

18:47

best group in the world and that 11

18:49

everyone knows what that 11 is right

18:50

it's it's fabinho henderson and not

18:54

milner

18:55

yeah and that's yago ginny whoever

18:57

whoever it is whoever it is and then the

18:59

four robertson uh taa

19:02

you know uh

19:06

phil in the blind matip i think is the

19:08

better one of the he's he's taken the

19:10

role so we know that that group over two

19:12

legs with anfield if they're there they

19:13

win the thing is they can't lose one guy

19:17

any piece comes out of that group and it

19:19

doesn't work

19:21

basically right whereas city and we were

19:23

i was listening to the the two robbies

19:25

podcast and they had they had steve

19:27

boyer on yes of hardcore manchester

19:29

united he literally worked for

19:30

manchester united tv but at least he's

19:32

the least fair he's just like

19:34

the city squad

19:36

we were saying it's 18 deep now i think

19:38

it's 25.

19:39

there's just no

19:43

there's no weak link yeah it's a it's a

19:46

weakling sport and city literally have

19:47

no weak link like

19:49

just bring it up and i didn't even think

19:51

about it because it because city played

19:52

so well

19:54

no diaz against chelsea john stone just

19:56

come back out of the [ __ ] wilderness

19:58

yep no problem

20:01

well that's i mean that's classic pep

20:03

right like throw him into the wolves see

20:05

if he can fly and that way when i need

20:08

him he's there right and this was a game

20:11

where like you know if chelsea won that

20:13

game not even if they drew if they won

20:16

that game

20:17

then they're

20:18

not the they're the old guy from monty

20:21

python i'm like oh i'm not done yet but

20:23

like you're still like it's still cities

20:25

to lose by a comfortable margin right

20:26

because at that point you're still i

20:28

think

20:29

six points clear maybe 70. it would have

20:31

been seven

20:32

seven seven with a game so you're really

20:35

realistically between nine and ten yeah

20:37

um

20:39

so

20:40

he goes

20:41

this is a big one this is a big test

20:43

let's see how you do because in the

20:46

event that diaz goes down that something

20:48

happens i can call on you john stones i

20:51

know the thing is i trust john stones i

20:53

know that there are portions of some of

20:56

those seasons

20:57

where he was the best defender on the

20:59

team he and laporte were [ __ ]

21:01

incredible like it's in him he's in the

21:04

january third night:

21:07

foot off the line it's his clearance i

21:10

know

21:11

i'm gonna kick you because that game

21:13

when i mention it

21:14

i get goosebumps and i could cry

21:17

that was the greatest game speaking of

21:19

and you pointed this out

21:21

yeah you pointed this out going back to

21:23

spurs for a second it is the latest game

21:26

in premier league history to go from

21:29

down to up and winning

21:31

and it ever dc it unseated do you know

21:33

what it was my game at 20 years old your

21:36

game the aguero game so we've chris even

21:38

said like oh man that was an awesome

21:40

game like that kind of sucks that that's

21:41

what it'd be and i feel the same way but

21:44

you know what that was [ __ ] awesome

21:45

that was good it wasn't quite an aguero

21:47

i mean

21:48

we've sort of lost direction on the show

21:50

and it's fine because we're probably

21:51

covering on all the teams we want to

21:52

cover but i do think about like

21:56

glory and where my team is and where

22:00

spurs is and where liverpool are

22:03

compared to men united and compared to

22:05

how they're covered and all these things

22:06

like ronaldo throw the pissy fit on the

22:08

on the field it's the lead headline and

22:10

everyone talks about the united game

22:12

right and the spurs thing was b-block in

22:15

a lot of podcasts just like oh wasn't

22:17

that fun that's why we love football so

22:19

it's that kind of thing and then cities

22:21

are always like i don't know what to say

22:23

about them but you know it's like what

22:26

like whereas if it was united playing

22:29

that way

22:30

every player would be would be dissected

22:33

there would be no question whether it

22:35

was the greatest team of all time right

22:37

it just wouldn't be they just already

22:38

were and they were just having all those

22:39

gonna carry them to the title he was

22:41

winning all those games

22:43

so remember when ronaldo was gonna carry

22:45

i did and i thought and i and i did say

22:47

it on the pod i i really thought

22:49

that oh actually that wasn't even shot

22:50

at you i was no no no

22:52

ronaldo i thought

22:54

was the right group of players

22:57

we just

22:58

didn't realize

23:00

the sort of iceberg of damage that oled

23:04

was putting on that team like oh they

23:06

just literally haven't been coached for

23:08

four years and again mourinho might be

23:10

an [ __ ]

23:12

and he might destroy clubs but he might

23:14

also not be wrong right he might also be

23:17

like these guys are [ __ ] [ __ ]

23:19

they suck like i can't work with them at

23:21

all i can't and then i was looking

23:23

through the seasons the other day just

23:25

to go through it

23:27

and that

23:28

that um mourinho team that finished in

23:31

second

23:32

to city when they the centurion team he

23:34

was like that was my best performance it

23:36

was they led the league in defense

23:40

they had 15

23:42

terrible

23:43

not that was nothing that was not the

23:45

first year that mcguire was on the team

23:47

i think right no no no mcguire came

23:49

after because he he proved he threw a

23:51

[ __ ] hissy fit after because he

23:54

didn't get maguire

23:55

right he got bae instead of maguire

23:58

he had phil jones and bae

24:01

right right right right so where do you

24:03

want to go well well we've got games

24:04

coming up as uh later today so uh i mean

24:07

it's not much of one it's watford in

24:09

north city however it is like the eighth

24:11

time they've tried to play it is yeah

24:13

probably it is one of the biggest games

24:16

in what's where is becoming a four-man

24:18

race for for 17th place right so um so

24:22

this one is big for me

24:24

it's bigger for norwich than it is for

24:27

watford just because watfords still have

24:29

the oopsies games in hand but this is a

24:31

game where you you can't

24:33

either team can't afford to lose right

24:36

if it's a draw similar to watford

24:37

newcastle no harm no foul we live to see

24:40

another business this this is a watford

24:41

win and i'll tell you why

24:44

[ __ ] terrible watford can score

24:47

norwich can't score and watford's

24:49

weakness is the defense and they will

24:51

not get broken down by this team

24:54

and so i agree i think the biggest thing

24:57

i think this relegation battle is really

24:58

interesting is i don't i i think burnley

25:02

has no shot those games in hand don't

25:03

matter like i don't i don't think they

25:05

can score enough unless corny goes nuts

25:08

i like we talked about it last week the

25:10

only thing that makes you think that

25:12

burnley is not going down is dice it's

25:15

all on reputation there's no reason for

25:18

that team to stay up

25:19

none absolutely zero

25:21

like just that they're up for the fight

25:23

that's the reason

25:25

that's not enough it's just that they

25:26

have more rounds in the fight left and

25:28

i'm not going to count them out when the

25:29

margins are so razor thin but if we're

25:31

looking at them on balance watford is

25:34

clearly of the and we've said this

25:35

before of the four teams the most

25:37

talented the most resolute but what they

25:40

do have is a trigger happy ownership and

25:42

if they lose this game yeah not only are

25:45

they going to lose

25:46

points in the standings to norwich but

25:48

they might fire in harry

25:50

he's that close he's that [ __ ] close

25:52

at all times you have to always account

25:54

for that with water

25:56

right you do have to account for madness

25:58

for insanity yes what's that you have to

26:00

account for

26:02

yeah for variable change right so it's

26:04

like so so you've got watford sitting

26:07

there teetering on disaster which could

26:09

be self-inflicted for all we know but

26:11

this is a game that like you said this

26:12

is a game that if you

26:14

if you're worth yourself in the premier

26:15

league you go and you beat north city

26:17

and go all right

26:19

you guys are there there is a line

26:21

between us and you and

26:28

and i'm not a um

26:29

[Music]

26:31

here's one thing to think about

26:33

benitez is out there

26:35

and yeah eddie howe

26:37

keeps [ __ ] up

26:39

how much will

26:40

will newcastle just be like he wasn't

26:43

available

26:44

when i hired three months ago yeah right

26:46

so

26:47

i you know maybe

26:49

so will yuno then be the second longest

26:52

tenured coach

26:53

in the league this year he might be

26:56

i don't know i mean i don't expect how

26:58

to get fired but you don't know i mean

27:00

it's new owners they're a complete black

27:03

box

27:04

they're they

27:11

that's not their problem they can't stop

27:14

anything no

27:15

no anyway i haven't i mean

27:19

so united west ham going from the

27:22

relegation fight to the top four fight

27:24

is a huge one on saturday um

27:26

i don't know what to make of really

27:28

either team recently uh so

27:30

oh i'm really excited for that one is

27:32

that is that is it old trafford or or at

27:35

that time

27:36

that's at old trafford

27:38

so i mean

27:40

that used to mean something i don't know

27:41

that it does right now but uh i don't

27:44

know yeah i can't the only thing i can

27:47

think of is how badly

27:50

west ham played against leeds like they

27:53

couldn't defend um

27:55

zuma's back in training that's huge for

27:57

them that means that they kind of

27:59

survived

28:00

the top four without zuma who made a

28:02

difference for them

28:05

there there's nothing in united's

28:07

performances that says they're gonna

28:09

beat west ham

28:11

only historical reasons say that they

28:13

won't beat west ham west ham are a

28:15

better team

28:17

what's that you could say the same thing

28:19

about west ham with united especially

28:20

going into old trafford no no i

28:22

understand that but what i'm saying is

28:24

is

28:25

based on this season based on coaching

28:28

everything says west ham should be able

28:31

to go

28:32

into united and get a result but the

28:35

variable is west united are [ __ ]

28:37

weird they could just beat them out of

28:40

the blue because they have so many good

28:42

players like one break sancho gets past

28:45

cresswell

28:46

top bins you're like oh [ __ ]

28:49

but on balance i don't expect a

28:51

performance from united on balance

28:54

that says that they are better than west

28:56

ham they will not perform they may hang

28:58

in because that's literally what united

29:01

do

29:02

they hang in

29:03

and hope de gea saves them if the hair

29:05

has a bad game they lose by three

29:08

sure

29:10

so you're saying earlier cliches like

29:12

they are earned and you know they do

29:14

come up talking about no backbone no

29:17

spine to the team

29:18

that's all i see when i watch united for

29:21

the last how many years so anytime they

29:23

had a flashy yeah sancho ronaldo

29:26

on the counter attack absolutely

29:28

terrifying but

29:30

over the balance of any duration i am

29:33

not

29:34

worried by that team at all and to me

29:36

west ham is the exact team where if you

29:37

don't have that backbone unless ronaldo

29:41

has a great

29:42

goal a corner quarterback right here he

29:44

hasn't and he has 10 feet higher than

29:46

everybody and gets that goal for weeks

29:47

though he hasn't done [ __ ] exactly so

29:49

what you're telling me antonio or

29:51

whoever bowen isn't going to grab one

29:53

and then make it two nothing and united

29:55

can't get back like they just said they

29:57

have nothing they have no resources

29:59

i do i do

30:01

want to give credit to united one of the

30:02

things that you felt like they were weak

30:04

and they would always give up goals now

30:05

de gea has been incredible

30:07

a ha you have there have been a lot of

30:08

clean sheets they haven't done anything

30:10

going forward they've muddled things up

30:13

so they could prevent

30:15

west ham from scoring i mean west ham

30:17

are not exactly prolific bowen is hit or

30:19

miss i mean he [ __ ] should have had a

30:21

draw he shanked it yeah shank did he

30:24

just didn't use his head like literally

30:26

he both didn't use his head and

30:28

literally didn't use his head

30:31

but i mean

30:32

uh

30:33

going back like on balance i would say

30:35

that the cohesiveness of west ham says

30:38

like you said that they should go in and

30:40

get a result or feel good about the game

30:42

regardless of how it comes absolutely

30:45

but again i still default to

30:48

the star power on united and it being so

30:51

scattered around the field bruno is is

30:54

shooting for fun again i don't know that

30:56

sancho will play but i mean aalenga is

30:57

scoring for [ __ ] sake now um listen so

31:00

i think he had two against brentford

31:01

yesterday

31:03

so yeah i mean it was rashford who

31:05

scored one okay and again rashford's out

31:07

of the dog house so um

31:09

if they're able to control the midfield

31:11

if listen this game is going to it feels

31:13

like it comes down to

31:14

uh if rice

31:16

is out of them exactly if he's able to

31:19

impose his will in the midfield and sort

31:21

of isolate the ronaldos and and and

31:24

everybody who's on that attacking third

31:26

for united then you could see west ham

31:30

at least

31:31

at least getting a draw comfortably well

31:32

i mean i it's about for west ham

31:35

they could they could lose and play well

31:37

is the problem like united can win and

31:40

play badly which is essentially what

31:41

they do they win games playing like crap

31:45

i i am

31:47

i'm weirdly afraid of this southampton

31:49

game for city because weird [ __ ] happens

31:52

i don't know why

31:54

city cities kind of do for one of those

31:56

stinkers they are but at the same time

31:59

you don't have the context of laurent

32:00

who uh could have a ferrari and go man i

32:03

really this thing needs an oil change by

32:05

the way i just this sunday city feels

32:08

that way yeah

32:09

i always think that i'm gonna lose but

32:11

he's self-loathing like you've never

32:12

seen before yeah and so i think that uh

32:15

they yeah that let's say they lose to

32:17

southampton fart noise nobody cares it's

32:20

still their league yeah but i do think

32:22

that palace against liverpool at

32:25

selhurst is such tricky

32:31

tricky fixture especially with the

32:33

weakness in the midfield of liverpool i

32:36

could see

32:37

my guy conor gallagher player of the

32:39

season [ __ ] getting it done he's a

32:42

big game guy he shows up he's got the

32:44

chelsea gene right he shows up

32:47

and he

32:47

he you saw him against tyler he was

32:49

foaming at the [ __ ] mouth because

32:50

he's like i like beating these people

32:52

he's got he's going to come out and play

32:54

and and liverpool is already a little

32:56

bit thin in the midfield they just

32:58

played earlier today yesterday whatever

33:00

uh and

33:02

it's going to be hard for them to turn

33:03

on i get they have the extra day on

33:04

sunday but crystal palace is sitting

33:06

there like i said they're waiting for

33:07

this game

33:08

is going to have

33:14

i don't think liverpool's gonna win that

33:15

game but i don't think it's because of

33:16

the midfield the fabinho anderson jones

33:19

midfield is so good yeah jonathan jones

33:23

we were talking about it in the uh build

33:25

up the arsenal game i was like

33:27

obviously the lineup's not going to be

33:28

great i saw that midfield like that i'm

33:30

actually confident they're going to win

33:32

now and at no point in the build up was

33:33

i will as long as as long as it's not

33:35

henderson milner together i think no and

33:37

totally agreed and they may they may

33:39

flip that they may go fab milner

33:42

um jones

33:44

whatever

33:45

i i don't i would rather henry as much

33:47

as the world loves milner and i and i

33:49

and i i'm not advocating for him it's

33:50

just i just i tweeted this is one of the

33:53

great things is

33:55

milner and wayne rooney are the same age

33:57

and came into the league at the same

33:59

time and no two human faces could look

34:02

more different and more destructive and

34:04

it's literally like the crack photo that

34:06

they put up with people from florida one

34:08

person drank and smoked their whole life

34:09

and one didn't and milner is the one who

34:12

didn't now it doesn't compare like

34:14

rooney's an incredible player but it

34:15

just makes you sad you're like ronaldo's

34:17

playing he's the same age as rooney

34:19

milner is playing he's the same age and

34:20

rooney now rooney will just go well i

34:22

had a better time so [ __ ] you guys

34:25

did you [ __ ] someone's grandmother

34:27

because i did

34:29

rudy you walk into a bar where he looks

34:31

at the ex-cop who's just sitting there

34:33

just absolutely wasted on a two-year-old

34:35

i got arrested for being drunk while

34:37

playing for dc united like yeah right

34:40

right right what are you doing guy

34:43

who's he yelling at it's like he

34:45

couldn't get any of the [ __ ] scouse

34:47

out of him right

34:49

so the sunday slate has four i'd argue

34:51

good games we talked i don't think

34:53

personally probably won't play by the

34:54

way

34:55

burnley you think burnley's gonna end up

34:57

getting postponed oh one more time yeah

34:59

like like like daft punk

35:03

well it sounds like they are changing

35:05

the rules because it uh the the because

35:07

it's [ __ ] well that the uk has the

35:10

same money they've completely 180 on

35:13

restrictions mandates passports

35:16

everything yeah no masks they're done

35:18

they're done which is a breath of fresh

35:20

air but so

35:21

assuming this game goes along arsenal

35:23

with their tail kicked firmly between

35:24

their legs in a game that they had a lot

35:27

to say in early on at least um no part a

35:31

no xhaka are you did show up he got back

35:34

from africa no no he got a red guard

35:36

showed up

35:37

he landed but is that does that red card

35:40

go to the league yep yes they do it's

35:42

all fa competitions okay so jacques and

35:45

partay both gotten red cards in that tie

35:47

against liverpool they're both out

35:49

so they're gonna be hurting in in the

35:51

defensive midfield one would argue xhaka

35:53

is subtract addition by subtraction but

35:56

burnley might have

35:57

is exactly the team that arsenal blow

36:00

the doors off of i know

36:02

but this is historical arsenal this is a

36:04

different arsenal team right like they

36:06

and listen martinelli will run roughshod

36:09

over burnley berlin excuse me but is he

36:12

gonna play because he sort of made a

36:13

glass as well we've been singing his

36:14

praises for a year now and it pains me

36:16

to say this as a gunner but like he's

36:18

great but he can't stay on the field so

36:20

is is arteta gonna play him two games in

36:22

in four days i don't know this is

36:24

classic arsenal they take these 442

36:28

clouded dust goon teams and light them

36:31

up

36:32

and make you think that they're good

36:34

sure and then they play good teams and

36:35

they lose

36:36

right well yeah i mean this

36:37

embarrassingly and what i'm saying is

36:39

coming off of the juice of a potential

36:42

win at home over liverpool

36:45

you know squad doesn't matter you beat

36:47

the jersey you go to wembley in the

36:48

final against your rival

36:50

uh no yeah well i mean it's a check

36:53

again a lot of arsenal season has been a

36:56

check of how they handle things so it's

36:58

another moment if they can come up and

37:00

go okay this team's gonna try and punch

37:02

us in the face we're depleted they

37:04

haven't played since

37:06

since the [ __ ] cotton gin was created

37:09

and the first strikes in the coal wells

37:11

coal mines happened and you know all

37:14

these things happened you know since uh

37:16

peter the the massacre at peterloo in

37:18

1618 whatever looking look it up i got

37:20

it wrong i think it's:

37:23

you know sure but uh you know the mills

37:26

will run on time in uh in [ __ ]

37:28

burnley we're making [ __ ] cotton okay

37:30

it's time

37:32

or wool or whatever the [ __ ] those yeah

37:35

that's but i would say even so of the

37:36

four games that is probably the least

37:38

interesting

37:39

your beloved brighton let's [ __ ] go

37:43

you're winning that game

37:44

going into no no

37:46

you don't have it you don't know

37:48

brighton

37:53

let me rephrase they're going to win the

37:54

xg in that game yes

37:56

they're going to outplay them and then

37:59

[ __ ] our our favorite french

38:02

i didn't rape her

38:04

uh mr mopey will score a goal in the

38:06

last minute and get a draw yeah

38:09

and i think lester is interesting

38:10

because the team that spurs played was

38:13

not the team that will show up on sunday

38:14

and that's a good thing for lester

38:15

harvey barnes didn't feature uh he came

38:17

in late he came in he said he said he he

38:21

was saying he played 15 20 minutes yeah

38:23

yeah he's gonna play on sunday james

38:25

justin made an appearance finally after

38:27

almost a full year on the sidelines with

38:29

an acl injury i was happy to see him

38:30

back we have to we have to talk about

38:33

brendan

38:34

is he a loser

38:37

well

38:38

i'll give you the floor on that

38:40

even when he was winning i thought he

38:42

was kind of a loser but he was winning

38:44

so it was all right now he gets that fa

38:46

cup

38:47

he takes a leicester team that as much

38:50

as everyone wants to say oh they're just

38:52

glad to be there they're glad to be

38:53

there they bottled two top four finishes

38:55

i mean they collapsed

38:57

both

38:58

seasons by another name

39:01

what buy another name you'd call them

39:03

bottlers right i'm happy i mean are they

39:06

just familiar with one of them something

39:07

is not fresh in denmark frankly like

39:11

there's something about him or maybe he

39:13

needs to get over the hump or maybe he

39:15

just needs to do something but something

39:17

about

39:18

his little stubby fingers and weird nose

39:21

just uh just make me you don't have

39:24

confidence like when you see lester up

39:26

and doing things you're just like oh

39:28

okay and then you think of the the games

39:30

against city where it's just like

39:32

they're down four no four nil and it's

39:34

the most ass kickingly ass kicked anyone

39:37

has been ass kicked but they come back

39:39

and they almost [ __ ] tie the game

39:41

right yeah 4-4 so which which team is it

39:44

and which

39:45

is it because rogers can play when he's

39:47

free and he's an underdog like you know

39:49

the whole season in that 13-14 they

39:51

would be a city they were not they were

39:54

way behind they were way ahead of

39:55

schedule that that team should never

39:57

have been anywhere near that but luis

39:59

suarez went [ __ ] interplanetary and

40:01

if he goes to aston villa it's the

40:03

greatest thing that's ever [ __ ]

40:04

happened i didn't hear that i didn't

40:06

work

40:07

that's purely poetic

40:12

[Laughter]

40:19

who do villa have they have some weird

40:21

team yeah they have everything away no

40:23

they have ever ooh that's a weird game

40:26

yeah it is that's the game i feel that

40:28

way about every time i see everton and

40:30

or villa on the schedule i go yeah what

40:32

are you

40:33

you know not really i mean i have a

40:35

better idea what villa are at this point

40:37

especially continue in the fold

40:39

especially uh they're starting to put

40:40

the pieces all together again and if

40:42

they get suarez that's a hell of an

40:44

addition

40:45

um

40:47

this is a game

40:49

back together that would be amazing

40:51

yeah you you look at this villa should

40:53

win this game yeah right and then danny

40:55

is just like [ __ ]

40:57

yeah

40:58

these guys these liverpool bastards

41:00

don't get out of my way well he was on

41:02

liverpool i remember he broke his

41:03

[ __ ]

41:04

legs that's what i'm saying like

41:06

wherever he is in his life so he was

41:07

literally supposed to replace suarez he

41:09

was after lambert he came in

41:12

no i'm not making them

41:14

so and then they can sell uh ollie

41:16

watkins to arsenal and everything will

41:18

work yeah the ecosystems the ecosystem

41:22

works um

41:24

yeah i i think villa comes out strong

41:26

everton is just so

41:28

and a mess but big duncan gets

41:31

performances out of them especially i

41:32

mean that's the thing he's got that he's

41:35

going to give them fight he's going to

41:37

give them

41:38

he's going to put the weight of history

41:39

on them whereas benitez took all of

41:43

their history away from them right and

41:45

it was all precision and tactical and

41:47

you play like this but there was no

41:50

no warmth no everton-ness of it but with

41:53

duncan there will be everton this and i

41:56

do remember the last time he came in

41:58

they i mean they got a bump

42:00

they played chris said like

42:03

the king of englishness might be big

42:05

duncan right like scottish so be careful

42:08

yeah yeah okay fine

42:09

but he's gonna show up for this [ __ ]

42:11

game like mel gibson and braveheart then

42:13

you know the story of him right like

42:15

someone trained to rob his house and he

42:16

[ __ ] the guy up

42:18

yeah

42:19

threw him out

42:21

that's awesome like literally like a

42:22

movie like throw him out like like the

42:24

saloon and blazing saddles like threw

42:26

him through the window sort of [ __ ] yeah

42:28

that happens way too often in in england

42:30

where like the player is out and had his

42:32

stuff stolen from his house i'm like

42:34

what the [ __ ] is going on

42:35

they don't have rules there that's what

42:37

the [ __ ] is going on they have more it's

42:40

less crime than here but it's weird how

42:42

often that happens like yeah

42:44

it's [ __ ] like less and like

42:45

statistically but it's like actually can

42:47

you people just deal drugs like stealing

42:49

stuff is really inefficient you gotta

42:51

steal it you gotta sell it you gotta

42:53

hope it doesn't get tracked the guy's

42:55

gonna be like you might have stole this

42:56

but

42:57

it's only it it in philadelphia it's

43:00

worth 50 bucks

43:01

you know what i mean like

43:04

you got to do stuff with it yeah no

43:05

that's a lot of work it's a whole is a

43:07

whole conveyor belt you know yeah you

43:09

got to know a guy it ends up like it's

43:11

like snatch

43:12

and yeah just sell talks the dog eats

43:14

the [ __ ] diamond and runs away with

43:16

the pikeys it's a mess

43:22

i'm gonna end it we got nothing no well

43:24

we've still got one more

43:25

unfortunate game to [ __ ] talk about

43:28

oh and we're going

43:29

for bridge and i don't want to and um at

43:32

the beginning of this stretch now we

43:34

didn't get to play arsenal

43:35

but i did say

43:37

that if you draw

43:39

at the beginning stretch it was two

43:40

games against chelsea obviously you want

43:43

four points out of it i just wanted to

43:45

beat chelsea in the cup draw arsenal and

43:47

lose to chelsea in the league and i

43:48

would have signed for that

43:50

we lost both legs in the cup

43:52

we didn't get to play arsenal which i

43:54

think as i said in the last show is

43:55

gonna work out to our benefit later in

43:57

the season because we'll have sunny and

43:58

romero back

44:00

but now we go back to the bridge

44:02

the question is does bergvine play now i

44:05

feel like the answer has to be yes um

44:07

especially in lieu of sunny still wow

44:10

an emotional manager you would think he

44:12

might you have to kind of ride him a

44:14

little bit but the other thing is i i

44:15

said it in in our or save him

44:18

no you got to keep riding him because in

44:21

in the same

44:22

way that when we talked about last

44:24

season right after the crystal palace

44:27

[ __ ] kicking in that second half with

44:30

mourinho the the liverpool game in

44:32

anfield when bergvine hits the bar

44:35

on the season

44:36

and it was the end of the season it was

44:38

at the end of him

44:40

it killed him he got the social media

44:42

because he got everything so for him to

44:43

have that moment and for him to have

44:45

that that confidence booster not once

44:47

but twice

44:48

and to lift the team from the depths of

44:50

[ __ ] back to frankly a point off the top

44:53

here's a question i have though

44:56

when does kante simply realize he his

44:58

best midfielder is harry kane

45:01

well yeah that the answer that they've

45:03

been looking for is

45:06

kane playing firmino's style or playing

45:08

the the nine and the ten right said

45:10

that's a lot right because with bergvin

45:13

and maura they just run

45:15

right and if he drops

45:18

so that's the question i have and then

45:20

we have to very quickly touch on mr

45:23

erickson going to brentford oh god well

45:25

is that is that locked and loaded is

45:27

that no i think someone just saw that

45:29

[ __ ] little red flag was like yeah

45:30

danish danish danish

45:33

danish

45:35

we'll discuss that when it happens but i

45:37

mean i i it's not going to make me fall

45:40

back in love with brantford if that's

45:41

what you're asking i'm [ __ ] done with

45:42

them i told them one more time and they

45:44

[ __ ] me again and that's it done with

45:45

them they were so good they were so good

45:47

in the first day i love them i love them

45:49

so much though um

45:51

i feel like [ __ ] going into the bridge

45:53

again i think we lose

45:55

better than it was yeah i think yeah i

45:58

think i think that the same issue keeps

46:00

happening it's just like

46:01

even

46:03

poorly playing chelsea and even

46:07

not at their best liverpool are much

46:09

better than the other teams in the

46:10

league that's i mean yeah that's what

46:12

we've said for a while that there is a a

46:14

hard and fast line after the number

46:15

three though it has gotten small real

46:18

fast

46:18

like

46:19

like chelsea are just literally dropping

46:21

to the pack but because of draws right

46:23

they're not losing has been dropping

46:24

back too west ham united arsenal

46:27

tottenham all dropping points recently

46:30

right so it's not so much that yeah

46:32

liverpool you notice no hold on here's

46:34

the difference you notice when liverpool

46:36

and chelsea drop points you notice when

46:38

they

46:39

don't do well which is gone one of those

46:41

teams right yeah [ __ ] you see if one of

46:43

those other teams outside effectively

46:46

the five-man race for number four yeah

46:48

if they drop points you almost don't

46:49

notice because there's so many teams in

46:51

that cluster you're like oh well uh well

46:54

todd never played well well west ham are

46:55

playing well well united got yeah but

46:57

but chelsea don't want to get sucked in

46:59

to make it a

47:00

six-man race for two spots then they

47:03

won't they won't but you understand that

47:05

they still have to there's a

47:07

two more games worth of [ __ ] and i

47:09

understand it's not that much

47:12

but it sort of is right like okay

47:14

but the thing that i worry about is

47:17

tukul's germanness

47:19

that frankness the thing that really

47:21

gets him in trouble that i mean it's

47:22

just german personality i think klopp is

47:24

the weird one

47:26

the most of the german they're all

47:27

[ __ ] weirdos except for cop i think i

47:29

think klopp is like feels really

47:31

american in this weird way it's like if

47:32

he beca if he moved to california he's

47:34

like i don't know why i never lived here

47:36

before you'd be like but i'm like

47:38

immediately part of the culture yeah

47:39

yeah he was like he just keeps talking

47:41

about it until you believe it yeah i

47:44

mean like jurgen klinsmann that's

47:45

happened before yeah yeah well i mean

47:47

jurgen klinsmann he lives in america his

47:49

kids are american he's just like yeah

47:51

he's almost he's barely german anymore

47:53

right but i think klopp has that in them

47:55

but but tukol is very like

47:58

if i were playing for him like yo shut

48:00

the [ __ ] up he's like a weird dude

48:02

and i and i and i i wonder i have this

48:04

question for you

48:06

and we'll we can wrap up on this

48:08

do you think that that

48:11

complaining that

48:12

klopp and tuchel did during the

48:15

christmas period

48:16

damaged his teams

48:18

because guardiola did not do it

48:21

he didn't take a [ __ ] on the schedule he

48:22

just said it is what it is now it's easy

48:25

to do when you have 25 guys that are

48:26

worth 40 million dollars each

48:28

but

48:29

klopp and tuko were just like

48:34

schedule

48:36

god

48:37

the reason i don't the reason i think no

48:40

is

48:40

that

48:42

react that um impersonation was spot on

48:45

and that's exactly what he does every

48:48

single year any time we get to the

48:51

festive period when liverpool the club

48:53

world cup when if we had got for bibi

48:56

advance in a cup he immediately just

49:00

starts bitching and moaning about the

49:02

schedule so

49:04

whether or not uh i'm not even saying

49:07

like

49:07

that it's not yeah but in this thing

49:15

i think the team's we've had strong

49:17

holiday periods too and he's like he's

49:19

done this year and year out so i just

49:20

don't think that's going to be no you

49:22

did it once

49:23

actually no that's not true you know

49:24

what i'm saying the bitching about the

49:25

oh yeah yeah yeah yeah he's he's on that

49:27

since he's been here

49:28

yeah and he's done not just in the

49:30

holiday period like that's a constant to

49:31

me so that's not going to be but i i

49:33

wonder what tucol

49:35

the chelsea team is

49:38

is similar to psg in that if the players

49:41

want to they get you fired

49:44

in chelsea yes

49:46

yeah

49:47

now a lot of that culture is really sort

49:49

of

49:50

exiting it's a part of that it's partly

49:52

that and it's also part of the goalie

49:54

then you get fired well right but it's

49:56

also partly uh you know the regime

49:59

is trigger happy right they they did to

50:01

frank lampard though they hired him too

50:03

early and we talked about that one at

50:04

the time but i think they kept them on

50:06

too long yeah but they threw out a club

50:08

legend on the curb like he was a [ __ ]

50:09

schlub so they were right i'm not saying

50:13

that they weren't they were wrong to

50:14

hire him in the first place though yeah

50:16

but they they were had the transfer ban

50:18

i don't think they thought he would do

50:19

that well and he did

50:21

yeah okay yeah yeah and then they they

50:24

jumped they were like tuco's available

50:26

he's world class

50:28

frank i bet if i bet marina was like

50:31

frank you know you're not as we're doing

50:33

it i'm sorry

50:35

like you get it this is like

50:37

all right okay

50:39

because he's a loser

50:42

as a coach

50:43

i don't know i didn't like anyway

50:46

i'm doing it that was the squeaky bum
