00:14

luck and spurs have a laugher which is

00:16

nice

00:17

on the other side of a laugher yeah but

00:19

first mike uh this is my day how do you

00:23

experience manchester orbies

00:26

yeah yeah yeah um i i watched this one

00:30

in passing i had these was in town so i

00:32

wasn't like super super glued to it but

00:35

um

00:35

my actually father-in-law was like is

00:37

this the manchester city versus i'm like

00:39

yeah how the [ __ ] did you know that

00:41

maybe he listens to the show hey reg um

00:44

but uh man city playing man united yeah

00:47

like oh that's the big game right i'm

00:49

like yeah so i kind of was in and out or

00:51

whatever but i watched the highlights

00:52

and like

00:53

from what i could glean right it was

00:55

like first of all we'll get into the

00:57

whole ronaldo

00:58

where was he thing where in the world's

01:00

christians

01:01

it wouldn't have made a difference it

01:02

wouldn't have but like it it speaks to a

01:04

much deeper schism and trouble

01:07

at the united

01:11

city states the city that i expected

01:13

them to be against everton a week ago

01:15

right which by the way we didn't really

01:16

talk about scary

01:18

um

01:19

they were good wait so let's let's just

01:21

be very let's just

01:22

for two seconds

01:24

man city lose to tottenham twice and

01:26

then struggle with everton and tottenham

01:27

beat you guys twice and then crush

01:28

everything he had playing badly we're

01:31

champions now that's these are the rules

01:33

of the transit property but um

01:35

uh i just thought that uh you know

01:38

united bumbly in their own way i mean

01:42

they had the goal to get right back but

01:43

like right from the jump

01:45

it was just it wasn't a matter of you

01:47

know if he was going to win it was going

01:49

to be by how much i i didn't experience

01:52

it that way i did say i did say oh city

01:55

need a goal early and they got that goal

01:56

earlier

01:58

but again classic united disaster

02:02

just just bad defending as usual

02:05

lindelof jumping out not affecting the

02:08

play and then just de bruyne being like

02:10

oh look at all this big space now

02:12

the thing that was interesting was

02:14

united did not play cristiano he's just

02:17

not there edinson cavani apparently

02:19

doesn't want to be there and doesn't

02:20

want to play he's hurt whatever there's

02:23

a lot of back room stuff going on that's

02:25

the drama but in the field the thing

02:27

that was weird was

02:30

pogba and fernandez played up top as the

02:33

two

02:34

and the wingers were alanga and sancho

02:37

so at first the first 20 minutes city

02:40

were like okay we got our goal

02:41

what the [ __ ] are you guys doing because

02:44

we'll figure it out but this is weird so

02:47

what was happening was i think city

02:50

had the instruction to

02:52

sit back because of the pace they were

02:54

afraid to get hit on the counter so

02:56

stones and laporte were probably

03:00

five yards too deep and so fernandez and

03:03

pogba were kind of in the in the ten

03:05

spaces causing problems and city were

03:07

like what the [ __ ] is going on the first

03:09

20 minutes pep's going nuts like

03:10

what

03:11

just move up what are you doing

03:14

then sort of things settle down in the

03:17

last 10 minutes of the first half

03:18

everything was fine okay

03:20

second half is really where the disaster

03:22

happens now i will say this and i said

03:25

it i think i said it on the show before

03:27

united have not played longer than a

03:31

half of good football

03:33

since ragnik came in they've had moments

03:35

they've had 20 minutes they'd have half

03:37

an hour they've had 20 minutes here they

03:39

have 20 minutes there under all a it was

03:42

always after they were losing and he

03:44

just like

03:45

come on boys go be men united that was

03:47

literally his coaching and they were

03:49

like oh all right let's do that uh but

03:52

this is now they just can't seem to

03:53

sustain the pressing that whatever they

03:55

were really pressing united figured out

03:58

the second half of this game was

04:00

pathetic

04:02

liverpool against ole level ole's for 20

04:05

minutes the last 25 minutes of the game

04:10

united gave up they only had

04:14

eight percent possession they literally

04:16

gave up

04:17

yeah so it was one of these embarrassing

04:20

things where the united pandarati which

04:23

actually that was a scene uh mika

04:25

richards laughing at keen having a

04:28

shouting match with gary neville on sky

04:30

in the little tiny room love that stuff

04:33

because these you ex-united players

04:35

always like this isn't the united way

04:36

i'm like what is this

04:38

ephemeral united way please tell me what

04:41

it is

04:42

what tell me what it is it's not kante

04:45

no he could never be the coach really

04:47

never he can never be the coach of men

04:49

united

04:50

i don't get it anyway so

04:52

city just dominate and do what they do

04:54

and i i'm low what what frustrates me is

04:58

um

05:00

we just can't really it's really hard to

05:02

find talking points for city because the

05:05

levels are so high that when they play

05:08

well you're just like well that's what

05:09

they're supposed to do

05:11

right they had all the things that

05:13

they're supposed to do like

05:14

bernardo running hard de bruyne being

05:18

incredible he scored two goals set up

05:19

the other one phil foden

05:21

[ __ ] up harry maguire just like

05:24

bodying him he bodied wamba soccer for

05:26

one of the goals the guy weighs 140

05:28

pounds he gets it like city just did all

05:31

the city stuff that if they play this

05:33

way which is the narrative is that they

05:35

always play this way which what you just

05:37

said is true they don't always play this

05:39

way this is

05:41

city at their highest levels and you're

05:42

just like well

05:44

[ __ ]

05:45

hey hey guys maybe do that more right

05:48

it's hard they can't sustain it no but i

05:50

think that i think that they first of

05:52

all they got out of jail last week

05:54

against everton

05:56

they circled this one on the calendar

05:57

and went all right like we think that

06:00

liverpool is gonna make an example out

06:02

of west ham

06:03

uh and we're gonna have to and they well

06:05

they didn't but so they go okay we need

06:08

to make an example out of a questionable

06:10

i think is a good way to put them

06:12

manchester united and so

06:15

they got up for this game like you said

06:16

foden they have

06:18

they have the pride for the shirt as in

06:21

so much as

06:22

any of these [ __ ] red teams and

06:24

anytime they take a [ __ ]

06:26

and they package it in a box they're

06:28

like oh my god isn't this the most

06:30

wonderful look at jurgen klopp and his

06:31

fist pumps in the club oh my god isn't

06:33

that so whimsical and wonderful and all

06:35

that great [ __ ] city bring

06:38

they have it they just don't get credit

06:40

for it yes well i think the pro i mean

06:42

and we can go through it all like

06:44

it doesn't have anfield

06:46

that's what's so frustrating no

06:48

well well in in a sense sort of yes they

06:51

don't have

06:53

40 years of equity that's all it is the

06:57

city fans were in good voice they did a

07:01

full stadium poznan that's how

07:03

disrespectful they were to steven united

07:05

so the pause name for those no all the

07:07

fans link arms turn around and jump up

07:10

and down so you don't even have to watch

07:12

the game anymore you don't care right

07:14

effectively we're just here so it was

07:16

like half mexican wave half poznan which

07:19

is pretty [ __ ] dope that takes a lot

07:21

of weird coordination so city fans are

07:24

so city fans are not up for friday

07:27

nights

07:28

for champions league nights this is our

07:30

favorite game because it's weird because

07:32

we're beating disrespect you've felt

07:34

from the other side of town

07:35

you're giving it back to them for

07:37

history like it's it's 10 year olds who

07:39

are now in their 30s who are just like

07:42

my whole childhood was abuse

07:45

for being a shitty city fan you're gonna

07:47

hear it today [ __ ] yeah yeah

07:49

today's the day right today's the day

07:51

we're united fans are just like yeah

07:53

we're bad at this point but for city

07:55

fans this is a big day we're still not

07:58

we're still not there we still don't

08:00

care about european nights this game

08:01

still matters a lot like it's still

08:04

really important you know it's not just

08:06

another game so let me go through the

08:08

scores and we'll get into other things

08:10

because i got excited but i'm gonna run

08:12

through the scores jesse marsh and leeds

08:14

they play really well they deserve to

08:16

win but lester and your boy mr harvey

08:18

harvey barnes gets a win they win one in

08:21

a smash and grab at home leeds looking

08:23

good i think i feel better about them

08:24

now speaking of not looking good norwich

08:27

stomped brentford tony hattrick i told

08:31

you tony was gonna score a hat trick i

08:33

told you brentford were gonna be fine

08:35

they are fine wolves lose to palace the

08:39

shine has gone off the wolves the xg

08:40

machine has left wolves wolves after

08:42

being beaten two out of the last three

08:44

they're now not a top four team they're

08:46

gonna sit where they are speaking of

08:48

sitting where they are aston villa

08:49

smashed southampton southampton have

08:52

games like this in them they were on a

08:53

six game unbeaten run they're looking

08:55

good and then they drop a four spot on

08:57

you i'm surprised it wasn't nine

08:59

coutinho ings watkins all together all

09:02

playing together first time looking good

09:05

for villa hopefully we'll see that again

09:06

newcastle continue the renaissance eddie

09:09

howe coach of the year they defeat my

09:11

beloved brighton scoring two early goals

09:13

but then brighton hang on but they don't

09:15

quite get it together but brighton did

09:17

play well then liverpool get so [ __ ]

09:20

lucky against west ham it boggles the

09:22

mind we'll talk about this game in a

09:23

minute they win one nil sadio mane gets

09:25

it done uh

09:28

there were two

09:29

gaping

09:30

chances one from four now's one from

09:33

lanzini this game should have been a

09:34

draw at a minimum arsenal win 3-2 versus

09:37

watford uh it's not as close as that

09:40

score line would suggest city 4-1 and

09:43

your beloved tottenham hotspur

09:46

smash everton and i think that uh that

09:48

performance

09:51

that puts everton in trouble and frank

09:53

lampard

09:55

they've been in trouble i think frank

09:56

lampard should feel some heat under his

09:58

ass

09:59

as listen

10:01

harry kane did harry kane things he was

10:03

deion kulasevsky was really good nominal

10:06

today really good really good really

10:07

good um but everton

10:10

being bad

10:12

was the headline in this game they were

10:13

bad okay um

10:16

uncoordinated

10:18

unmotivated and then just holes at the

10:22

back like swiss cheese and

10:24

um

10:25

you saw it on the i think the third goal

10:27

where kane breaks free and you're like

10:29

who the [ __ ] idea was that like like

10:32

hey hey

10:33

hey

10:34

good

10:35

good good good good good pass from

10:37

doherty great pass from doherty how do

10:39

you just like i understand if like sonny

10:41

comes off the left and and and kane does

10:44

that thing where he suckers you in but

10:46

kane's the guy making the run how do you

10:48

lose him so it was it we'll we'll go

10:51

deeper into everything later in the show

10:52

but uh i i have one person worried about

10:57

michael keane

10:58

who is the worst defender

11:01

in the [ __ ] league that he can play

11:04

at everton at this point is a joke it's

11:07

laughable he literally makes a mistake

11:11

that leads to a goal every game you know

11:13

what he is he's a [ __ ] harry maguire and

11:16

harry maguire's [ __ ] no no no he's worse

11:19

than he's gotten worse he was a [ __ ]

11:21

harry maguire a month and a half ago now

11:23

he's something far far worse i mean

11:26

they have a

11:28

naughty i'm not gonna disrespect the

11:30

championship there's better teams teams

11:32

have better defense in the championship

11:34

than ever yeah

11:35

yeah no no no and if i ever see jordan

11:37

pickford play for england again then

11:40

southgate he was bad so the first okay

11:42

so so 15. we're into spurs now all right

11:45

[ __ ] it 15 minutes in it's two nil the

11:47

first one was an own goal from michael

11:48

keane that on first touch i thought kane

11:50

got it i was like wow awesome that was

11:52

michael keane being king rocket ship in

11:55

the top corner after

11:56

he loses kane on the near post and then

12:00

a ball comes in that he couldn't

12:01

possibly get to

12:03

but he does so one note right off the

12:05

jump and you're like oh boy this could

12:06

get okay buckle up guys um and then the

12:10

second goal again it's it's suns away

12:13

there's just there's just

12:14

patches and by patching i mean 30 to 40

12:17

yards of just naked green and sunny

12:21

the line is

12:23

not in line so all these things guys are

12:25

playing guys offside and there's someone

12:27

not offside you're like no he's fine

12:28

what are you and so sonny's away

12:30

uh or actually no i'm sorry it was

12:32

kulaski who again uh his first of two

12:34

assists on the day he was unbelievable

12:36

he was really good um

12:37

and then sun's gone and it's a ball that

12:40

pickford should stop

12:41

so

12:42

you know and then i i already talked

12:44

about the third one with kane where he

12:46

like you how do you again i understand

12:48

if you lose son because he's coming off

12:49

the wing or whatever harry kane

12:51

literally ran right through the middle

12:52

of the goddamn field

12:53

like literally three yards in a cloud of

12:55

dust and then the whole secondary was

12:56

like no just kidding

12:58

the other thing i noticed and this is

12:59

never gonna give credit they'll never

13:01

give credit to this and they don't

13:02

because narrative is too hard to deal

13:03

with all those goals like built out from

13:06

the back all of them as those

13:08

now it's built out from the back with a

13:10

long ball into kane so they'll play

13:13

get it back to laurie's and then he'll

13:15

hoof it

13:16

to kane with the runners running off him

13:18

so it was really good but mike i mean it

13:21

looked like leeds out there that's how

13:22

bad the defense had ever hey i mean

13:24

aggregate in the last two games uh spurs

13:26

are nine nil right against leeds and

13:28

everton who may i remind you and maybe

13:31

this will take us into the relegation

13:33

conversation 16 and 17

13:35

and not looking good

13:37

right so leads you mentioned i think

13:39

that they might have

13:40

they might they had to part ways would

13:42

be all said i think they might have at

13:43

the right time there's still time to

13:45

pull out of this

13:46

they should have beat leicester for sure

13:48

yes but

13:49

i'm worried for them i think that

13:52

they're in a better spot than everton

13:53

despite the fact that everton has two

13:55

games still in hand

13:57

but i don't know i don't know

14:00

yeah the relegation fight is

14:02

it's so weird how it's morphed right and

14:04

that and and we always say one or two

14:06

wins can change everything and brentford

14:07

getting that win it's like

14:10

right like brentford's okay for now

14:12

for now let me let's let's go through

14:14

that that top list though let's just

14:16

make sure we have everything clear and

14:17

set the stage yeah what i kept thinking

14:19

about so liverpool gets their win one

14:20

nil at home versus uh west ham west ham

14:24

were really good they should be proud of

14:25

themselves they did not have declan rice

14:27

and they

14:28

really should have got something out of

14:30

that game liverpool know it they cheered

14:33

like it was a big win and then i go to

14:35

the city game i'm not going to go

14:36

through it again but all i kept thinking

14:37

in the back half of the game is pour it

14:39

on goal difference is going to matter

14:42

goal difference absolutely and again

14:44

that's why i thought they would put

14:46

seven past everton last week but they

14:48

they're going to

14:50

when they feel apathy and this is what i

14:52

saw out of everton today yeah when they

14:54

sense apathy they are sharks with blood

14:57

in the water and they're just going to

14:58

go and go and go you know why

15:01

pep has

15:02

no chill he is ruthless

15:04

you will show he will shove your heart

15:07

through your ass and then show it to

15:09

your mother and it's to be bad there's

15:12

going to be some teams that yeah someone

15:14

is going to hurt feelings someone is

15:15

going to catch a body from city really

15:17

yeah yeah yeah we're talking like six or

15:20

seven yeah grealish played everybody

15:22

played really well it was a really good

15:23

performance by city grillish was good

15:26

yeah and uh could be burnley

15:29

burnley yeah it could be burnley uh so

15:31

so we've got that in place so that we're

15:33

still six points

15:35

liverpool with the game in hand still

15:38

on the charge to that big game uh april

15:41

10th when the world will collide the

15:43

super clasico the new the good versus

15:46

evil the biggest game in the world they

15:48

have taken the mantle from bar from

15:50

ronaldo's uh real and messi's barsa i

15:54

think city liverpool is now the biggest

15:56

game in the world if you can if you can

15:58

find a better game let me know but that

16:01

is now

16:02

the game in the world so if you're new

16:05

to this game and you're just following

16:07

us along and you want to find and see

16:09

the highest level football you can watch

16:11

mark your calendar april 10th

16:14

32 days to come up with like a good

16:16

name for this darby yeah yeah

16:19

uh we should probably talk about the

16:21

chelsea

16:24

the chelsea burnley game first half

16:26

burnley were really good they were

16:27

hanging in there uh and then chelsea was

16:29

like you're burnley [ __ ] off and they

16:32

just stomped them uh i don't think uh

16:34

lukaki will ever play again i think that

16:38

i think that um i think he's had enough

16:40

uh i didn't see much from burnley this

16:42

was kind of disappointing i thought the

16:43

second half was laughable uh they didn't

16:46

really get close

16:48

haveritz was good we've been talking

16:49

about haveritz a little bit he's really

16:51

kind to us on the season yeah i think

16:53

that front three the havarts pulisic

16:55

mount group

16:56

that's a good group they make sense

16:58

together because they're all the same so

17:01

they can all move around together

17:02

exactly and that's when pulisic is at

17:04

his best right we see him

17:05

basically holding court for the u.s

17:07

men's national team where he is not just

17:10

the centerpiece but he's able to say i'm

17:12

going to come over here not unlike how

17:14

kane always attracts eyeballs from the

17:17

opposing defense so if he has that free

17:20

that creative freedom in the front you

17:21

know attacking midfield then

17:23

you begin to have trouble with him

17:26

because it's effectively like you have

17:28

three mason mounts or three the other

17:30

piece about those three they're all the

17:31

same age there's got to be like cultural

17:33

connection you got to think about these

17:34

things haverts holistic mount all the

17:37

same age you know the english speaker

17:40

pool of sick haven't been in germany

17:42

there's some connection there that i

17:43

think is like i think the other

17:44

underrated piece is getting

17:46

maybe they haven't gotten chillwell back

17:48

but reese james makes a difference he

17:50

scored their opening goal and then it

17:51

sort of just poured in but the less said

17:53

about chelsea the better uh they're

17:55

gonna they're locked on to their spot

17:57

they do have to have a little bit of

17:58

worry if they wobble will arsenal catch

18:01

them can they fall in they're not gonna

18:04

they're not gonna fall out of that spot

18:06

so we talked about it on uh on thursday

18:08

with our pal olly carpenter uh lytics

18:11

who uh again thank you ali for coming on

18:13

the show it was great chatting with him

18:14

um

18:15

we got into this he was excited because

18:17

he was like oh we get to talk about the

18:19

actual on-field stuff too it's not just

18:20

the roman abramovic [ __ ] which he was so

18:23

enlightening to kind of spell that out

18:25

but i asked him and i was saying you

18:27

know well how do you pre you know

18:29

perceive this to maybe affect the

18:31

on-field results and he even said like

18:33

luton town gave them problems because

18:35

some of that stuff was happening like as

18:37

the lineup came out right so

18:40

uh so they were really had their heads

18:42

turned and i thought that burnley would

18:43

give them a fight and frankly they did

18:45

they did

18:46

um

18:47

uh you know i mean look i i i was coming

18:49

fresh off of the burnley experience i

18:51

was like hey this may not be so fun for

18:52

you right now um

18:57

and i kind of walk through uh what

18:58

effectively the next

19:00

month or so looks like for chelsea and

19:03

um we really

19:05

he was i mean he was he sounded like you

19:07

a little bit in the sense that he was

19:08

like uh well i don't know i mean you

19:11

know it's like always sort of the

19:13

pensive way am i gonna we're gonna [ __ ]

19:15

this up but there were points that

19:17

that's football that's how you yes but

19:18

there were points that like you got

19:21

you've got to take not just burnley they

19:22

play norwich next

19:24

um you know they they've

19:26

they will have a couple of other cup

19:28

games to probably turn their head a

19:30

little bit but at the same time like

19:32

they'll be okay and these are games that

19:34

they likely should win and then at the

19:36

tail end of the season it does the the

19:38

difficulty does ramp up significantly

19:41

they've got west ham they've got well

19:43

everton's going to be a laugher for them

19:45

i suppose but wolves uh games where you

19:47

go and many united games where you go

19:50

you could drop these points 100 percent

19:52

so um

19:53

so yeah i mean it's going to be

19:54

something where i don't think they're in

19:56

trouble for the third spot um they're

19:59

too good they're so much better than the

20:00

other teams

20:01

that top three is so much better like no

20:04

you wouldn't

20:05

would you

20:06

if if arsenal and chelsea had to play

20:08

ten times how many times would chelsea

20:10

beat them seven oh sorry with chelsea

20:12

yeah seven yes yes exactly the number

20:15

right exactly i said three for arsenal

20:17

so yeah right right no not even chelsea

20:20

would win seven draw one and lose two

20:23

um

20:24

yeah i mean i think the key thing with

20:25

chelsea is their problems are fluidity

20:27

and scoring and i think it's more of a

20:29

midfield problem like their defense is

20:31

in line with cities and liverpool's

20:34

their problem is is their scoring is not

20:37

they can't score with them yeah right

20:39

yeah like they they're if the xg's are

20:42

in the 20s for all those three and i

20:44

when i when you play chelsea and you see

20:46

it you could see it in the i thought the

20:48

the the carabao cup final was really

20:50

indicative this is a really good team it

20:53

can shut down liverpool which is the

20:55

highest scoring team in the world period

20:57

uh it's not you know they they're

20:59

like

21:00

liverpool's front four now

21:02

is it has depth right now it's it's

21:05

monet it's salah

21:08

it's diaz yeah and then their sixth guy

21:11

is auriji who oh by the way you need a

21:13

goal late he just somehow finds a way to

21:15

do it at least once a season right so so

21:18

they're really really good and and

21:20

chelsea shut them down and they could

21:21

have won that carabao cup very very

21:23

funny oh sure but not but i think the

21:25

larger point is they are who we thought

21:27

they were right like the top two of the

21:29

top two chelsea still

21:31

um look if they wobbled against burnley

21:32

okay yeah sure and then arsenal are

21:34

three points off the pace with a game in

21:36

hand maybe maybe conceivable without

21:38

question and then you know chelsea's the

21:40

third team yeah and now arsenal are

21:43

staking their claim they are there the

21:46

proverbial driver's seat and i cannot

21:48

believe that on march 8th we're sitting

21:50

here saying this um

21:52

there is a long way to go but look at it

21:54

this way

21:56

look at the the tone in which we are

21:58

considering united and by the way a

22:00

massive massive game coming up next

22:02

weekend that will detail on thursday

22:03

between spurs and united at old trafford

22:06

um

22:07

which could

22:09

signal

22:10

who the real challenger for arsenal is

22:12

and i don't mean to disrespect west ham

22:14

but [ __ ] you for a minute um

22:17

arsenal are

22:19

the

22:20

kings in the castle who need to be

22:22

actively dethroned

22:24

holy [ __ ] where are we what year is it

22:27

right well i think i think the key the

22:29

key thing with arsenal is and i've been

22:32

talking about it all season they're the

22:33

younger team they've been playing the

22:35

youngest lineups all season they have

22:37

the growth going in they have a set

22:39

lineup all of a sudden there is a set

22:42

group that plays

22:44

they don't have any depth like if they

22:45

lost lacazette i think they'd be in

22:46

trouble if they lost ben white i think

22:48

they'd be in trouble if they lost

22:50

gabrielle i think they'd be in trouble

22:52

uh you know there's not a lot of depth

22:53

in the group

22:54

um but

22:55

our they don't have their monday they're

22:57

now once a week they got no extra games

22:59

they're out of the fa cup they're at a

23:01

league cup they got no europe they're

23:03

just

23:04

playing the games and so they're really

23:07

in the driver's seat they have

23:08

there's almost there's not even arsenal

23:10

fan tv things anymore because you know

23:13

half of them are in jail or murdered or

23:15

stalked their wives and the other ones

23:18

are protesting palestine and have their

23:19

own channels the whole thing is now very

23:21

narrow and very like

23:23

arsenal

23:24

are not banter club anymore they're just

23:27

like we're young

23:29

we have nothing to lose

23:31

they can lose the games you'd expect

23:33

them to lose and still finish in the top

23:34

four so here's here's where i want to go

23:36

on arsenal okay

23:37

this is going to dovetail into our

23:39

conversation about manchester united

23:40

because

23:42

they

23:42

have had good performances

23:44

but largely

23:46

who have they beaten over the last two

23:48

months they don't have to beat anybody

23:50

you don't no in fact and and this is my

23:53

main gripe about tottenham hotspur

23:55

probably ever

23:57

um that you just don't pick up the free

24:00

points yeah

24:01

it's a it's a college basketball team

24:03

that just can't hit the free throws and

24:04

they act like they're surprised when

24:05

they lose to a 14 seed in march their

24:07

best win is wolves

24:09

exactly they beat a completely hapless

24:12

brentford

24:13

they drew scoreless against burnley uh

24:16

the leg the the yeah but that was the

24:18

that was when that was the burnley

24:19

turnaround point so that sure that that

24:21

nail nail is not as bad as it uses they

24:23

they played that they pretty tough but

24:25

they couldn't get that done

24:26

beat the [ __ ] out of norwich beat the

24:28

[ __ ] out of weeds

24:30

a good win against west ham we're going

24:31

all the way back to december 15th now

24:33

that was a good one yes everton they

24:36

beat southampton which is a good win but

24:37

okay

24:38

what are my what am i mentioning here

24:40

aside from city

24:41

not a lot of brand names no where are

24:44

they you ask i don't know postponed

24:47

games at the bridge and at tottenham

24:50

await you

24:52

yeah yeah for sure liverpool is coming

24:54

to your house in a week

24:56

right you've got leicester [ __ ] kick

24:59

their ass palace who are really good

25:01

they got a tough run a lot of games huge

25:04

so as we talked about

25:06

you know april 10th in the context of

25:08

the title race it is extremely likely

25:11

that we will have a clear-cut um

25:14

picture of the top four at that point

25:17

and maybe not you know what they have a

25:18

really tough run a really tough run

25:20

listen

25:21

this schedule that you're looking at by

25:23

the way march 13th at holmen against

25:26

leicester city march 16th at home

25:28

against liverpool march 19th awaited

25:30

villa april 4th away to palace april 9th

25:33

at home brighton

25:35

five games in a row all difficult

25:37

opponents does not include

25:40

playing it away to chelsea and playing a

25:42

way to tottenham your two biggest rivals

25:45

who are in and around the title uh the

25:47

top four race with you and now let's

25:50

keep in mind that tottenham game

25:52

could be the i don't know when it's

25:54

gonna be scheduled yet it hasn't been

25:55

but it could be the inflection point for

25:57

who has the inside race in the last call

26:00

it month of the season for the fourth

26:03

spot in champions league so

26:05

i mean

26:06

but they did what they were supposed to

26:07

do

26:08

oh no absolutely and full marks to them

26:10

for going out and getting those points

26:12

yeah but

26:13

the the the rubber is going to meet the

26:14

road and we'll find out who arsenal

26:16

really are we've been kissing their ass

26:18

for about a month and a half and i'm not

26:20

enjoying it

26:22

before before before we give before we

26:24

go

26:25

when

26:26

ollie got fired from united we looked at

26:28

the schedule and literally marked the

26:30

city game as the game yeah i think you

26:32

and i both were like they could get

26:34

every single point here

26:36

how did the

26:38

there were 48 points on offer and united

26:41

got the [ __ ] connecticut compromise

26:44

of 30 points

26:47

we did mix it into this i made it 16

26:49

games 16 games yeah so that's almost

26:53

half the schedule and it's about 45 it's

26:56

about three fifths um

26:58

[Laughter]

27:00

it's about it's about 40

27:02

of the schedule

27:04

and they got 60 of the points from that

27:07

stretch yeah that's not good yeah they

27:10

it needed to be

27:12

it needed to be

27:13

38

27:15

yeah because they got too many draws

27:17

only two losses uh but they were not

27:20

name-brand losses like they they're

27:22

gonna look at their season when they

27:23

miss the top four by four points and be

27:24

like we dropped four points to nor to

27:27

watford and they're going yeah

27:30

yeah and now lucky for them

27:33

lucky for them that not one not two not

27:36

three but four teams around them have

27:38

all [ __ ] the bet almost equally with the

27:40

exception of arsenal who [ __ ] them at

27:42

early on and have surged now right um so

27:45

the thing is the thing is with united to

27:47

me is just like

27:49

there's no

27:51

there there

27:53

there's nothing to there's nothing for

27:55

them to hang their head on like there's

27:57

nothing that says oh there's this young

27:59

player who's gonna pick them up there's

28:01

no there's no like oh but they're

28:03

playing well they're just not getting

28:04

results there's nothing there well they

28:06

put all their eggs in a 37 year old

28:09

basket

28:10

yeah and and and kinda in a way doesn't

28:12

want to be there they're gonna play you

28:14

guys on sunday on saturday and then

28:16

liverpool away by the way they could get

28:18

destroyed by liverpool

28:20

badly

28:22

that could get really autographed at

28:23

anfield that's going to be a mauling

28:25

that could get graphic oh dear and and

28:28

then they have chelsea towards the end

28:30

that's gonna go real they they have a

28:32

tough run by the way crystal palace is

28:34

just there to [ __ ] everyone's season up

28:36

i still they really are they're sitting

28:37

in the top half of the table right now

28:39

you know [ __ ] good

28:41

i mean there's five teams on three point

28:43

four teams on 33 points but like i mean

28:45

it's it's a good they're the those those

28:46

middle teams like you don't want to [ __ ]

28:48

with villa you can it's funny because

28:49

like there's

28:51

there's nothing at stake between

28:53

brighton and southampton that spans 9th

28:55

or 13th but i would argue they're having

28:58

the most fun this season

29:00

who's southampton or brighton i don't

29:02

know anybody in that stretch they're

29:03

like hey man we're not going down let's

29:04

just [ __ ] people up oh yeah

29:07

oh the fun group the [ __ ] what do we

29:08

have to lose oh nothing oh okay and by

29:11

the way uh newcastle just joined that

29:13

party they're now in the fun party uh

29:16

their their invite got lost in the mail

29:18

but they know the address yeah i guess

29:21

you're talking about that five point gap

29:22

between 14 and 13. that 13 to 8 spot

29:25

that's a fun place to be oh no sorry 14

29:28

to nine that whole southampton ballast

29:30

yeah yeah villa lester and so lester

29:32

that's the fun group those are the

29:33

that's the fun bunch lester

29:35

if you put it in high school party terms

29:37

lester the older brother that bought the

29:39

booze that's just like high end

29:41

29:43

an ankle bracelet on on a house arrest

and he can't go anywhere uh aston villa

29:47

are like the virgins who are like just

29:49

trying to make out with the chick for

29:50

29:55

chiefs yeah yeah okay okay okay

29:58

um

29:59

30:04

uh crystal palace are like the kid who

30:07

has like the drugs his older sister gave

30:09

30:47

wolves has the car has their parents car

30:49

31:17

in superman not not johnny hill right

31:19

um

31:20

yeah so that mid-table group i like that

31:22

group i don't know where brighton fits

31:23

in they're kind of over it they're like

31:25

fifth year senior like yeah man i know i

31:28

got left back again again yeah yeah i

31:31

kind of like them anyway we haven't got

31:33

the foreign exchange student who's not

31:35

in there we haven't found that character

31:37

uh in the show maybe that's wolves

31:38

that's newcastle no but the new owner

31:40

[Laughter]

31:42

yeah but they're not there yet they're

31:43

not there yet yeah i do like i do like

31:45

where they are

31:46

um so that group is there and then

31:49

there's that relegation battle that we

31:50

keep talking about uh i do like the

31:52

jessie mars thing that has gone well

31:54

that's exciting um they seem to be

31:57

playing well

31:59

wait hold on let's yeah i leads don't

32:01

just get a pass because they have jesse

32:03

marsh now and we want them to we want

32:04

them to do well because we want him to

32:06

do well if jesse marsh gets relegated

32:09

with leeds

32:11

that he stays with them

32:13

okay

32:14

regardless

32:16

that speaks poorly of american soccer on

32:19

the global stage

32:20

it just does i don't like it it's a fact

32:23

right

32:24

they'll go oh that stupid yank you

32:26

brought us down right and i'm not saying

32:28

it's even fair or true here's what the

32:31

facts are right they have 27 games

32:33

played they have 23 points but in this

32:35

context of this battle they lose the

32:37

tiebreaker to literally every team other

32:39

than norwich they have a minus 32 goal

32:42

difference that's not gonna get

32:43

dramatically better if they can get it

32:45

to minus 30 by the end of the season

32:47

that means they'll probably stay up

32:49

because they'll probably have enough

32:50

points but

32:51

if that's if it comes down to the

32:53

tiebreaker between frankly bradford

32:56

leeds everton and burnley they are

32:59

not in the driver's seat on that front

33:00

so that's the thing that scares me about

33:02

them i want i i want them to do well i

33:04

want marshmallows to

33:06

die

33:06

what the [ __ ] happened to that yeah he's

33:08

just sitting there at every game he

33:10

looks perfectly [ __ ] healthy to me

33:11

i'm kidding i don't know what that i'm

33:12

talking about but let's see they got

33:15

they've got villa norwich wolves

33:17

southampton watford they still have

33:20

people in their

33:22

group to play like they've got to beat

33:25

[ __ ] norwich they've got to beat

33:28

watford that's two wins right there uh

33:30

and then hope that they can the body you

33:33

were talking about is city

33:35

it's coming up april 30th i'm gonna get

33:38

killed

33:39

right that's what i'm saying there are

33:40

games where they're gonna lose by a

33:42

comfortable margin and that 32 is only

33:44

going to get worse so i almost

33:47

i almost at this point you don't care

33:50

about goal difference you're trying to

33:52

you know scratch out draws but if if if

33:54

you have like an everton did today where

33:56

it's like three nil don't stop don't

33:58

don't play defensive don't be like oh we

34:00

can't give up two more goals who gives

34:01

you no [ __ ] it just go get it yeah well

34:03

that's how they have been playing i do

34:05

think like like i said like the

34:07

the james time at striker is just he

34:10

just can't finish he's just like he gets

34:12

into position and he just shoots wide

34:14

yeah it's brutal uh they just can't seem

34:17

to get out of their own way um where do

34:20

you want to go here we've got we've got

34:21

our top four we've done the relegation

34:23

battle we've got games on on thursday

34:27

that we won't be able to talk about

34:28

that'll have happened because they're

34:29

happening it's a lot of makeup games

34:32

those makeup games are like norwich

34:34

chelsea

34:35

those are not i i i wouldn't talk about

34:38

them if we had a show on thursday

34:39

morning um

34:41

wolves in watford leeds in aston villa

34:44

southampton newcastle

34:46

and

34:50

you got some of our our party boys in

34:52

there but i don't yeah but they're not

34:53

playing each other which is the problem

34:55

yeah right although

34:56

newcastle southampton will be good

34:59

but i think yeah that's the one

35:03

and i'm curious to see what leads can

35:05

aston villa is a good test for leads

35:07

because of who they who they might

35:09

become because villa seems to be putting

35:11

all the pieces together they are very

35:13

formidable especially from an attacking

35:15

sense and leads are still

35:18

we don't really know what marsha's going

35:19

to be able to do with that so this is a

35:21

game where we don't know what points are

35:22

on offer and we don't know if they'll

35:24

get them we know one thing they do not

35:27

[ __ ] do that stupid man marking

35:28

[ __ ] right so they immediately

35:31

didn't give up they should have beat

35:33

lester and they basically

35:36

gave up a goal because of a mistake and

35:38

it was less than their normal mistakes

35:41

because they've been giving up threes

35:42

but they only gave up one which was nice

35:45

for them

35:46

uh i think the champions league comes

35:48

back next tomorrow today today

35:51

today

35:52

yeah you play so these are games where

35:55

you're like

35:56

there's um liverpool at home up to nil

36:00

against enter

36:01

what do we think is gonna happen there

36:03

uh man city at home up

36:06

five nothing speaking of bodies there

36:08

might be one on the ground and uh and

36:10

nietzsche had on wednesday

36:12

uh and then psg madrid is the really

36:14

interesting one on wednesday and i

36:16

should say i missed byron bayern versus

36:18

rb salzburg one one so we've got one

36:20

good game each uh each day uh bayern in

36:24

salzburg going back to the allianz tied

36:27

at one obviously away goals don't matter

36:30

so it's a square square game going into

36:32

it um

36:35

i'm hopeful that salzburg can win i

36:37

don't really have a good reason for that

36:39

um

36:40

that would be amazing it's nice it'll be

36:42

good it'll be a great story uh i do

36:43

think the the game next week are really

36:46

like

36:47

season defining games

36:50

for

36:51

united and atletico that's next week

36:54

season defining juve villarreal oh yeah

36:57

for those teams um for for

37:01

it it will define uv's season if they

37:04

lose it may not define villarreal season

37:07

if no no no they're fine they'll be

37:08

they'll be over the moon but for you

37:10

that united win it is a statement of

37:13

intent for them right i feel like

37:14

atletico

37:16

vs men united is like that's a cage mack

37:18

that's like loser leaves town

37:21

yeah yeah right like rang nick's season

37:23

is a complete catastrophe and simeone if

37:26

he loses loses his job and goes to

37:28

united why why does it why is it why

37:31

isn't simeone to united an option

37:33

because they live through mourinho

37:35

already

37:36

and they don't yeah but at least he has

37:38

a project he has a he has a way of

37:40

playing he has a he has a cholismo

37:44

i think he's a more charismatic jose

37:47

more they can't be more charismatic to

37:49

jose mourinho well no no jose mourinho

37:52

pretends he's charismatic he's just a

37:54

[ __ ] bond villain right

37:55

like diego simeone creates is a bond

37:58

villain

37:59

well yeah but he creates havoc

38:02

and

38:02

it's it's exciting boring football

38:06

i think yeah i don't i don't i don't i

38:08

don't i don't think that he the other

38:09

thing i would say is that he has

38:12

lived in la liga for so long

38:16

that he was throwing punches at peak

38:18

real and peak barsa

38:20

and now that he's where he is like they

38:23

won the league last season i know i know

38:26

what i'm saying though is like

38:28

i think

38:30

he would struggle with the move to the

38:32

premier league because he has been

38:35

swimming he's swam with sharks for years

38:38

yeah but he plays premier league

38:39

football

38:40

already

38:41

yeah he plays burnley premier league

38:43

football though like

38:45

like i what i'm saying is i in the age

38:48

of we talked about it earlier yeah is it

38:51

over yeah

38:53

yeah yeah there's so many attacking

38:55

teams they're gonna get god they'll

38:57

they'll smoke a couple of teams on the

38:58

counter absolutely because they're a

39:00

very very very good burnley but

39:02

i don't a i don't know that i want that

39:04

back in the league in in bigger numbers

39:07

especially in a quad bike united and

39:09

additionally i don't know

39:13

how many players would throw a hissy fit

39:16

on united so you think they're you think

39:17

they're they're discombobulated now

39:19

simeone comes in he's got the gravitas

39:21

it's it's akin to gerard walking in the

39:23

villa room like i'm [ __ ] diego

39:25

simeone i can show you you know it's

39:27

funny and it would never happen

39:30

united need gerard to be their manager

39:32

oh

39:34

wow

39:35

they need that if there was a i did too

39:37

they if

39:39

like a young

39:42

really into it

39:44

one in scotland he's basically [ __ ]

39:46

he's basically alex ferguson he went to

39:49

scotland in one so it's it's like

39:51

ultimate reality right like if he could

39:54

be if he could be the united manager

39:58

he's actually what they need right like

40:00

like arteta those types those from the

40:03

club to the you know what i mean like

40:05

yeah really into it really intense

40:08

really cares won't take [ __ ] from the

40:10

fans

40:11

in charge just like i'm here this is

40:14

happening i'm young i get this right

40:16

like

40:18

i don't think united for all those

40:20

pundits that they have everywhere

40:22

none of them are good managers like

40:24

sir alex didn't create good managers you

40:26

have to have

40:28

it like maybe it was gonna be giggs and

40:30

he ended up i think he's in jail i think

40:31

he he did some briefings yeah he was

40:34

being groomed and i think he was maybe

40:36

and then he was grooming other people

40:37

yeah

40:38

i don't know i don't even know what

40:39

happened i don't either i don't want to

40:41

i don't want to know either yeah i mean

40:43

we we talked before the show whether we

40:45

should talk about the violence in mexico

40:47

and it's so bad that we can't talk wait

40:50

well listen we like to keep the show

40:51

light and and have a good time with it

40:53

but like like this there's a war and

40:55

then there's like 18 people died this is

40:58

just getting tested like that's like a

40:59

stadium in mexico

41:01

think about think about this right like

41:03

there's such

41:05

a culture

41:07

for this that you

41:09

[Music]

41:10

yeah and you go to a football match and

41:13

you

41:14

aren't intending to

41:17

inflict bodily harm on somebody i'm not

41:20

going to say that i haven't felt that

41:22

way at rangers islanders games i'm not

41:24

going to say that i haven't felt that

41:25

way yankees red sox we just don't have

41:26

it in this country it's just not a con

41:28

no what we have is rules and [ __ ]

41:29

police is what we have

41:32

okay so that's one but two we don't

41:35

organize it out of the stadium but

41:36

that's exactly it right like

41:38

like

41:39

in so much as like it's so old american

41:41

like 80s okay man you want to step

41:43

outside it's like no no we're all gonna

41:45

step outside and then we're going to

41:47

just do it inside too right yeah it's

41:49

really bad

41:50

and it's like it's 18 people if you

41:52

don't know it's atlas versus

41:56

the name of the team but i picked it up

41:58

late on sunday or saturday and i was

42:00

like this is the worst thing i've ever

42:03

it's the worst i've seen it's like

42:05

taking the bomb it's like taking river

42:07

versus boca and then just

42:10

not having police yeah right and and and

42:13

that's kind of where i'd like to draw

42:15

the attention like

42:16

the acts of these people

42:18

is grotesque to the sense that i would

42:21

recommend you don't watch it and read as

42:24

little about it as possible it's bad it

42:27

is

42:28

horrifying right it's it's

42:31

sorry

42:32

in terms of

42:33

premier league people if you know

42:35

it's not

42:37

it's not hillsboro

42:39

in terms of the brutality of those

42:40

people dying it's more like um

42:43

it's more like heisel hazel where people

42:45

got crushed into uva fans and it was

42:47

more fighting it's just bad it's like

42:49

yeah and and there's but but it's not

42:51

even like a stadium disaster it's just

42:54

fighting it's a humanity disaster which

42:56

i for me

42:57

is it's worse again like you said the

42:59

the the sheer numbers aren't worse and i

43:01

and i it's not a dick measuring contest

43:03

but

43:04

in the manner in which this was carried

43:06

out

43:07

this is

43:08

this is homicides

43:10

yes this is what

43:13

homicides yes

43:15

and i just want to stress that that is

43:19

the most

43:20

jarring idea

43:22

yeah for

43:23

fans of any club any sport any team yeah

43:28

to have to have listen there's fights go

43:30

to the game

43:31

people dead you get punched in the face

43:33

and that's fine i get it whatever

43:35

there wasn't okay there wasn't even so

43:37

much as like

43:39

usually in to put it into context in the

43:42

us

43:43

specifically in the nfl right you see

43:46

um a fat guy start yelling [ __ ] at a guy

43:49

with another team's jersey and they get

43:51

into it from a few rows away the guy

43:52

climbs up a few rows punches them in the

43:54

face what does everybody else do right

43:55

now they take out their cell phones and

43:58

they and they record it whatever

44:01

well when they they get involved or

44:02

whatever but there's always 15 different

44:04

camera angles of it right this

44:06

everybody just it was like literally

44:08

somebody hit somebody it was

44:11

magnifying

44:12

the the order in which

44:14

i can't stress enough how horrible this

44:17

all was because it was literally and

44:21

everyone simultaneously looked at it as

44:23

an invitation to cause

44:25

significant bodily harm to people and

44:29

where you find like

44:31

i've been in scraps of whatever i'm not

44:33

the i'm not oh cool cool mike you're

44:35

[ __ ] going to fight [ __ ] no no but

44:36

like the point is like

44:38

at some level

44:40

they're like

44:41

when you get into that primal state

44:44

all sense leaves your body but at some

44:46

point it does have to return and that's

44:49

the thing that is just it it makes my

44:51

stomach turn is that got to be a level

44:54

of drunkness

44:56

beyond comprehension yeah but okay sure

44:58

but even still at some point

45:02

like the idea of mercy to whoever was

45:05

being beaten trampled dragged whatever

45:09

yeah it never

45:11

ever occurred the worst footage is is

45:13

literally people

45:15

stripped naked and then getting stomped

45:17

while lifeless

45:19

it's just jarring so that's bad for

45:22

mexico uh they're

45:23

talking about the whole league

45:25

did they yes oh good that's what should

45:28

happen i i agree completely like now

45:30

it's just like oh mls and league of mex

45:32

should mix together no they shouldn't no

45:34

they [ __ ] shouldn't

45:37

i've gone to i went to an orlando city

45:39

game a couple months ago and it's

45:41

extremely and this is how mls um uh

45:44

positions itself right or wrong it's

45:46

extremely family-friendly bring your

45:49

kids have a good time this and that are

45:51

you out of your [ __ ] minds it's

45:53

literally like a bizarro planet

45:56

facing your wholesome lovely

45:59

you know we're not really we're we're

46:01

not re american soccer fans are not

46:03

ready god damn idea

46:06

if you took the three biggest rivalries

46:09

in any sport in the us

46:11

and you melded them into one rivalry and

46:13

you played twice a year once at my house

46:15

and once at yours and then

46:18

you got everybody liquored on tequila

46:20

and sent them into a rage against each

46:22

other i think i think that

46:25

it could have got

46:27

i think yankees red sox in certain eras

46:32

in the stands 70s pretty bad in the 70s

46:36

and in the no i think american sports we

46:38

had it we had a heavy drinking and

46:41

fighting at ball games i mean bruins in

46:44

the stands against the rangers and the

46:46

rangers i mean and the malice at the

46:48

palace we had we had that stuff but we

46:51

made sure because of capitalism

47:00

just like the chinese are like hey

47:01

russia can you ixnay on the ukraine say

47:05

because we got this road we're trying to

47:07

build and you guys are [ __ ] whole

47:09

thing up will support you will you stop

47:11

killing these [ __ ] ukrainians this is

47:13

a bad idea it's bad for business don't

47:16

do this anyway uh so everybody doesn't

47:19

want that's why like capitalism is the

47:21

best because it's just like whoa whoa

47:23

whoa whoa whoa whoa can i not kill the

47:26

people don't step on our prophets please

47:29

step over there

47:31

take it easy mind the green arrow

47:36

it's all good to abuse people and

47:38

workers and not break unions that's fine

47:42

but with when the war is with white

47:44

people just not with the white people no

47:47

wars with europe just please don't do

47:49

this these are not people we want to get

47:51

involved in so we went to mexico we got

47:53

the war the premier league is not a war

47:55

it is not a problem i worry attrition

47:58

i do hate liverpool fans but i don't

48:00

want to fight them and i like to talk

48:02

about their teams

48:04
