they're

00:42

frustrating uh they're disjointed

look at their record recently against

00:49

manchester city when they're looking

00:52

uh and playing like [ __ ]

00:55

then

believe in them i love it i love you

01:26

these are the games where they show up

01:27

so we'll do the scores and we'll get

01:29

right to it first in the premier league

01:31

manchester united defeat my beloved

01:33

brighton brighton we're strong in the

01:35

first half and then a red card from my

01:37

friend mr dunk and then uh backyard mr

01:40

ronaldo puts uh united in front it's his

01:44

first goal in six games and everything

01:46

is right in the united world they pick

01:47

up a late goal to win two-nil into the

01:51

champions i know we go international but

01:54

not often psg

01:56

defeat real madrid oh messi misses a

01:59

penalty real madrid don't take a shot on

02:01

target

02:03

disgusting they play really defensive

02:05

it's actually disgusting city go to

02:07

portugal and stomp sporting uh they have

02:10

one of their games where when city's

02:12

shots go in they really beat you really

02:14

badly and that happened red bull

02:16

salzburg formerly of ralph ragnarok

02:19

stomping ground draw 1-1 versus mighty

02:22

bayern munich oh if the away goes rules

02:25

still existed that would be a big goal

02:28

it wasn't uh

02:29

enter

02:30

home at the san siro stifle liverpool

02:33

but liverpool again they're really good

02:36

and they find a goddamn way the sons of

02:38

[ __ ] but next week we have chelsea

02:40

first little villarreal you've ended

02:43

benfica ix and then the battle of two

02:45

terrible teams that probably shouldn't

02:47

be here and have fallen apart since they

02:49

qualified for these groups atletico

02:50

madrid versus men united that will be

02:52

the game that everyone is paying

02:53

attention to for the next round

02:57

mike where do you want to go i want to

02:58

start with um with psg real madrid

03:01

because we talk i talked about it in the

03:02

in the preview that this was a huge game

03:04

for pochettino he for all the fanfare

03:07

that he got in the summer um you know

03:10

everybody was you know excited about him

03:12

potentially leaving whatever and then

03:13

psg made a big grand gesture and said

03:15

he's coming back he's staying

03:16

this is the

03:18

basically [ __ ] or get off the pot moment

03:20

i mean this is their whole season well

03:22

of course but like this is

03:24

historically with psg you get two maybe

03:27

three kicks at the can

03:28

in champions league and you're out the

03:30

door so this is his second i think

03:32

second full time through it right maybe

03:34

third

03:35

um

03:36

i can't remember because the covenant is

03:38

all blended together at this point but

03:39

um but look you know for as much as

03:42

madrid was

03:44

on madrid right uh no shots as you

03:47

alluded to they very defensive like they

03:49

gave psg everything that they could want

03:51

yeah they came really close to getting

03:53

away with it right so uh

03:55

scores in the 94th minute to give them

03:58

the goal that they needed so

04:00

uh all to play for in the second leg

04:02

it's certainly not done and dusted but

04:04

um

04:05

but almost right almost for for for

04:07

madrid so

04:08

um

04:10

in the back of my mind i'm i i'm

04:12

watching psg it through the prism of how

04:15

does this affect mauricio pochettino not

04:16

necessarily because i want him back it's

04:18

time or anything just because i still

04:20

find him to be well it becomes a deck

04:23

shuffle and then does it does the thing

04:26

open up to everything does he go to

04:27

united does it does randy talk to him

04:30

does he go back to spurs does all the

04:32

you know the the deck

04:33

around again everything starts moving

04:35

again and again like we've said and been

04:38

a theme of this season the especially

04:40

after the um the the super league the

04:43

power of the premier league is so huge

04:45

that

04:46

if you are not at bayern psg

04:50

or

04:51

real madrid or well barca is different

04:54

because they have like that weird

04:55

culture

04:56

you have to be in a premier league even

04:59

even the crystal palace job is a good

05:00

job even aston villa is a good job like

05:03

any job look at look at kante right

05:05

kante won serial last year with interim

05:07

was like i'm out of here so yeah um

05:10

he he he left and he ended up at [ __ ]

05:13

spurs yeah you're gonna tell me that

05:15

that's a better job than inter no chance

05:18

right historically it isn't but i think

05:20

it is especially after you watch what

05:22

just happened in syria i think but it's

05:25

well it's a combination of yes the

05:27

premier league is the best place to be

05:29

but that who does that draw egos right

05:32

so kante goes yeah i mean i won serie a

05:35

nobody's [ __ ] paying attention

05:37

i mean it was a big deal

05:38

but i know i know but at the same time

05:41

it's like all of my

05:43

all of the the the men that i measure

05:45

myself against

05:47

are

05:48

my peer group right i can be the king of

05:51

coaches the co-ops the peps

05:53

you know uh yeah and then and then you

05:55

know with inter it was chinese investors

05:58

they were all trying to get into soccer

06:00

because she thought that soccer was cool

06:03

they spent billions of dollars kissing

06:05

his ass and the second he stopped being

06:07

into soccer they've all bounced

06:09

they're like you know as much as we can

06:12

make f i mean make fun of the pif uh for

06:15

saudi arabia make fun of qatar with psg

06:19

make fun of um make fun of abu dhabi

06:22

owning manchester city

06:24

regardless of their

06:25

of their

06:27

goals that

06:28

journalists have put on them

06:30

they really are football fans and really

06:32

care about making these teams win i

06:33

don't care what the goals are when your

06:35

team is owned by saudi princes

06:38

they're [ __ ] serious yeah like it's

06:40

nice

06:41

absolutely right i don't want to try a

06:43

weird chinese uh technocrat who's trying

06:46

to kiss cheese ass at least the qataris

06:49

the arab money is just like yeah

06:51

we want to win this [ __ ] matters like

06:54

psg is now on year 10 cities on year 15.

06:58

they're not [ __ ] around no no it's

07:02

actually amazing to me that if you put

07:03

in those terms that neither of them will

07:05

won the champions league yet that's

07:06

crazy it's really really really [ __ ]

07:10

hard to win the champions league i know

07:12

i got close once and then never [ __ ]

07:15

again it is i don't understand it and i

07:18

think actually i i think this is one of

07:19

those moments that i think we should

07:21

step back on and do our sort of

07:23

historical we'll talk inter and

07:25

liverpool big game big all-time teams

07:29

inter liverpool this is the european

07:31

knights and i think it segues into the

07:33

kind of energy of like

07:35

you need the gravitas as a club i don't

07:39

know how it gets to the players it gets

07:42

transmitted into the fans it matters for

07:44

certain teams more than others and i

07:46

think about with american sports how

07:48

we've

07:50

we've given that up by

07:52

player movement by free agency by where

07:55

lebron goes is the finals and the teams

07:58

don't have to build to making a finals

08:01

to win right teams don't stay together

08:02

long enough they get one punch and a

08:04

nose the teams break up right like yeah

08:07

you know does anyone think that i mean

08:09

the rams kind of the nfl football you

08:11

have to go for it and that's it and you

08:12

go you don't make it to the super bowl

08:14

lose and then make it again i have to i

08:17

know we're gonna probably go into the

08:19

american sports a little bit on this

08:20

episode but uh i have to bring up the gm

08:23

of the rams to your point like go for it

08:25

he had a shirt and said [ __ ] them pics

08:27

right which is brilliant

08:29

yeah yeah because a gm shoe stafford got

08:31

miller

08:32

yeah

08:33

like i mean that's i think one of the

08:35

things that's

08:36

disconnected from american fandom and i

08:38

focus a lot on the nba because i just i

08:41

follow the drama of everything that's

08:43

not the games they literally don't talk

08:45

about the games no the games are not

08:47

material everything goes from trade

08:49

deadline to who's a free agent in the

08:51

summer

08:52

not the games and while we lament

08:56

sometimes in the premier league

08:58

there's not enough to talk about because

09:00

all we have is the games

09:02

right like

09:04

you know the nfl is like that because it

09:05

has eight months of off season

09:07

essentially right so i they get a pass

09:09

baseball but the games but the games in

09:11

the nfl at least drive the narrative no

09:13

they matter right exactly yeah and so

09:16

there's just so much more room for

09:18

england and europe as a whole to grow

09:21

and the weird thing about this is that

09:24

they don't have anything else so i don't

09:27

understand

09:29

like

09:30

you ever you ever find yourself thinking

09:32

like with all the technology we have and

09:33

all the things at our disposal that we

09:35

have the balls to sometimes like say

09:37

we're bored whereas like 200 years ago

09:40

300 years ago like

09:42

i would have killed myself i would have

09:43

been sitting here like like that's what

09:45

do you guys do the rest of the week like

09:48

you know it's like well they do a lot of

09:51

drinking i don't think that they i i i

09:54

think one thing that we

09:56

assume

09:58

is that they know more about soccer than

10:00

we do

10:02

they don't

10:03

we know and care about football more

10:06

than they do because our culture about

10:08

sport is way crazier than theirs like

10:11

they don't they it's saturday comes and

10:14

that's it right some guys are into it

10:16

you get the odd weirdos who travel do

10:19

their travel and away days so on one

10:21

hand yes they no the way more percentage

10:25

the percentage is

10:27

like the the top 10

10:29

they are significantly deeper than than

10:32

we are but right but 11

10:35

no no chance it's not even close no it's

10:38

not even close i would say time goes in

10:40

both directions right like that top ten

10:42

but then you make the other side of it

10:44

is like there are 92 professional teams

10:46

there is a guy that we work for on

10:48

fanhub who goes to every stockport

10:51

county game every single one he made an

10:54

app that's all he cares about russ we

10:57

love you brother ross russ one of the

10:59

others but uh but they they go that deep

11:02

right so i don't it's weird like we're

11:04

talking about it from this high level

11:06

but they go down into these deep sort of

11:08

like there's sunday league that's a

11:10

thing they like it's much more pervasive

11:13

to both be a fan of your team

11:16

and play still

11:18

because soccer lends that

11:20

to you but again you're all no you're

11:22

like no one plays football on their own

11:24

for fun no no there's no sunday league

11:27

throw have a thrill but i mean and it's

11:29

not it's not a it's not the same thing

11:31

but again

11:32

we do have friday night lights so it's a

11:34

lot of [ __ ] well

11:36

there's that but there's

11:38

again it i think you're talking about

11:40

the top 10 ish percent of

11:43

of uh you know the uk population or or

11:46

fandom at that point but no we have five

11:48

sports right how many people play beer

11:51

league softball how many people play

11:53

[ __ ] rec league something right so so

11:55

you fan it out yeah but that they all

11:57

fall in the casuals

12:00

i consider myself an american

12:02

die hard sports fan i'm not in that ten

12:04

percent right now we're in another level

12:09

i'm in the 10 of the united states

12:11

fandom yeah i don't come close to the 10

12:14

over there right so

12:16

and if i grew up there maybe i would

12:18

right maybe it would be cultural

12:19

no you'd be a hooligan you would fight

12:22

on the terraces you would do that i

12:24

wouldn't anymore probably because the um

12:27

the

12:28

cctv would have quality in the cameras

12:30

yes that's exactly where i was going yes

12:33

yeah well yeah but i would have some

12:35

battle scars for sure

12:36

in fact in fact i do from rangers

12:39

islanders games so i'm pretty much there

12:41

still okay oh god god love hockey and

12:44

it's fighting uh so we we go into the

12:46

games liverpool beat inter at the san

12:49

siro firmino and salah get it done and

12:52

liverpool are

12:54

moving along getting themselves into

12:57

gear klopp seems to be blooding in new

13:00

players we've got the the youngsters are

13:01

coming through um we've got

13:04

a real sort of regeneration i think that

13:07

giotta has clearly taken over the

13:10

firmino spot even though firmino got

13:11

through

13:12

uh harvey elliott is being playing on a

13:15

regular basis and he even got konate

13:18

in there in a big game against inter and

13:20

this inters playing their best now to be

13:22

fair

13:23

edison jeko is

13:26

36 years old

13:27

uh yeah uh perisic is 35 years old so

13:31

vidal is also 35 years old so when you

13:34

get a sense of what's going on in syria

13:36

ah

13:38

they still are playing some

13:40

alexis sanchez came on you've still got

13:42

some a little bit retirement home

13:44

whereas liverpool is putting out the

13:47

best of the best they're reloading

13:49

they're really reloading

13:50

um i don't think he made an app oh he

13:52

did diaz came on uh at some point so

13:56

yeah they're reloading they're not

13:57

they're not shying away and and

14:00

the thing about the retirement home and

14:02

it's not to say that firmino is there

14:04

yet but

14:05

he came on in the 75th minute and he is

14:07

officially now he'll he's gonna get you

14:10

you know do a job for you so he had the

14:12

first goal uh and and listen it's a game

14:14

where they're on the road in champions

14:17

league european night

14:19

they broke through in a late you know

14:21

two late goals so that seems to be the

14:23

theme of the week you know realistically

14:26

yeah and then they'll go they'll go to

14:27

anfield and there's just i mean it's all

14:29

there's no way inter has no chance

14:31

listen like what i would say is if inter

14:33

was up two nil not down to now

14:36

even then they definitely

14:37

probably still should be favored right

14:39

so yeah i mean but that but see that's

14:41

the wonder of of of liverpool though

14:44

they're fans

14:45

as much as they probably have anxiety

14:47

they're afraid

14:49

one goal early and they're like we got

14:50

them

14:52

there's a very

14:54

very few teams that feel that way no

14:57

right there's a nervousness i think it's

14:59

a list of one

15:02

yeah it's anfield right right and it's

15:04

definitely not my team my team falls

15:06

behind uh even though city when we win

15:09

five nil we look incredible city i think

15:12

i would say byron's probably the other

15:14

one but you don't have the fan like the

15:16

the

15:17

the sky is going to fall on top of me

15:19

feeling on the pitch at no they're in a

15:22

very wealthy city of bayern it's

15:23

metropolitan they have a beautiful new

15:25

stadium they're brian i don't know you

15:27

know what i would say the team on the

15:28

field is is you feel like that but but

15:31

not necessarily like oh my god there's

15:33

gonna be yeah but i don't know i don't

15:34

think the iron the alliances

15:36

is their original stadium and i'm

15:38

embarrassed that i don't even know what

15:39

byron's old stadium would have been i

15:42

should know that i don't want and i

15:43

don't want to search for it uh i do want

15:45

to go we'll go to salzburg byron in a

15:47

minute but i do want to go through city

15:48

i want to give the team credit raheem

15:51

sterling with a hat trick a natural hat

15:53

trick after missing a penalty and

15:54

putting it in natural hat trick left

15:56

foot right foot and a header uh read

15:59

mares also puts one in phil foden on

16:01

some nifty skippy skippy uh footwork to

16:03

score a goal porto really showed

16:06

they played okay but city in these

16:09

moments when they take four shots and

16:11

three of them go in you're gone they'll

16:13

blow you away you need city to miss when

16:16

raheem sterling is hitting top bins on a

16:18

cut inside you're in trouble so raheem

16:21

inform city playing city now [ __ ]

16:23

around playing uh john stones at right

16:25

back

16:26

just giving zero [ __ ]

16:28

yeah and he looks good you know that's

16:31

just sitting for you they didn't need

16:32

the speed of walker and i'm sure when

16:34

there's more pace involved walker will

16:36

come in but city crews this game they're

16:39

so precise they just don't stop like i

16:43

know everyone feels

16:45

it's boring we do the albert pujol

16:47

saying we do the i don't want to see tom

16:50

brady come back he's down 20. he's going

16:52

to just get this team back in order it

16:53

doesn't matter which team it is that's

16:55

how city are they move one way another

16:58

player fills in the gap they move one

17:00

way another player fills in the gap

17:02

everything about them is precision it's

17:04

killer if guard provide i i

17:08

i'm gonna say it now i'm gonna look at

17:09

the camera it is

17:11

february 18th

17:13

if pep doesn't [ __ ] this up

17:15

city have a very good chance of winning

17:17

the champions league of course they did

17:18

one

17:19

of course they knew but i don't know i

17:21

don't know i don't know i feel like a

17:24

lot of the dead weight

17:25

yeah but a lot of the mistakes and [ __ ]

17:28

ups that guardiola can do there aren't

17:29

many left because the squad is getting

17:31

really small there's only like 18 guys

17:33

on the team now like yeah as long as he

17:35

doesn't play ake in the final i'm good

17:38

oh now you've spoken it into existence

17:41

real quick

17:42

it's the munich olympic stadium i did

17:43

look it up which makes sense but it's

17:45

been since 0.506 that they've had

17:47

allianz so

17:49

oh i don't like that munich olympic

17:51

stadium

17:52

it's a little nazi issue

17:53

[Laughter]

17:58

munching is now uh the current tenant

18:02

despite no teams uh being there since

18:05

2006. so

18:07

i think we get a break on that one if

18:09

i'm being honest

18:11

is that is that that's world war two

18:12

adjacent i think uh we'll accept we'll

18:14

accept that as as an item for the show

18:19

you know um let's talk red bull salzburg

18:21

from an american perspective this is all

18:24

about aronson if you watch the american

18:26

team

18:27

he's [ __ ] killer that team runs hard

18:30

fights hard they're they have a 33 year

18:33

old coach no player on that team or

18:35

their coach

18:37

this is all their first season

18:39

the guy had never been a manager before

18:42

and i wanted to bring it up with kante's

18:44

comments about spurs saying how he needs

18:46

more players he needs more older

18:48

veterans and i think he got taken out of

18:50

context to make the concert thing sound

18:52

bad but

18:54

i think

18:55

you know it's just two ways of thinking

18:56

right the

18:57

do we let a team grow in a sort of

19:00

easier league and let players grow we

19:02

sell them on redb red bull salzburg has

19:05

put some really great players in this in

19:07

into europe

19:08

holland

19:09

monet being the two that i think of uh

19:11

taki minamino also came through red bull

19:13

salzburg and they have the weird sister

19:15

club where it's like oh you could go to

19:17

leipzig we don't own that right i was

19:18

gonna say i confuse them with lipstick

19:20

way too much

19:21

they're not leipzig no no

19:27

the sporting director you run both clubs

19:30

yes

19:31

which is weird and i think they all run

19:34

red bull they have a whole thing going

19:36

on uh so it's interesting how they

19:38

worked that but aronson was really

19:40

really really good uh and they they they

19:42

will move him on he's got a

19:45

he's got a conor gallagher quality i

19:47

think he's got a very his game will

19:49

translate to england he's got the hair

19:51

he's got the running when he plays for

19:53

the us men's national team

19:55

he's got the fight and he set up the

19:57

goal uh that put um red bull up but then

20:01

of course kingsley come on and the

20:03

relentlessness of [ __ ] bayern they

20:06

get their goal if we were still doing

20:08

away goals rules

20:10

i'd still not it would be over

20:12

essentially because you've effectively

20:13

got to go to

20:14

munich and win right um whereas now

20:18

obviously you don't um

20:20

but no i i still i i called that out i

20:23

think i said in the preview episode that

20:25

i thought byron byron would handle them

20:27

but i think that they you know closer

20:29

than the expert sticks sort of thing so

20:30

i think it was probably right on the

20:31

money on that um

20:34

but no i just

20:37

getting back to your kante thing okay

20:39

yeah he did it at chelsea he did it at

20:41

inter he he talks and by the way chelsea

20:45

gave him a war chest chelsea gave him

20:46

like 100 million dollars in spending and

20:49

he was like ah i want more though so

20:51

he's insatiable in that front as he

20:52

should be he says he's vocal he says

20:54

what he wants he he goes after the you

20:57

know he talks about the players he wants

20:58

to go get he doesn't give a [ __ ] about

20:59

money

21:00

um i can't i can't imagine he didn't i

21:04

can't imagine he didn't know

21:06

levy was this way

21:08

that's the thing is that so okay you

21:11

have to remember before spurs hired nuno

21:15

they were this close to talking we're

21:17

talking with kante para tichi's

21:19

whispering in his ear their buddies from

21:20

the juventus days and then kante walks

21:23

away

21:24

and it was it was not reportedly over

21:27

his salary it was like hey you need your

21:29

[ __ ] team stinks you're gonna need

21:31

xyz players and levy's like that's just

21:34

not gonna happen not even like yeah yeah

21:37

yeah it's okay

21:38

fast forward three months later they

21:39

hire nuno and then subsequently fire

21:41

nuno they're still paying him i would

21:43

imagine

21:44

and they go

21:46

okay

21:47

we'll just lie to you like we'll get you

21:48

whatever the [ __ ] you want to get come

21:50

on in please come save us it could it

21:52

could still happen it just is going to

21:54

be it's going to be kante complaining

21:56

all the way i don't think he'll leave

21:58

i do i honestly do because you're going

22:00

to go 18 where do you think manchester

22:02

united i've said it a few times on the

22:04

show

22:05

he has an 18-month contract what's who

22:08

gives a [ __ ] to him if he leaves

22:11

you know six months into that what does

22:13

he care right like

22:15

the thing is that there has like i said

22:17

there has to be a job open but i do

22:18

think that united

22:19

come on

22:20

do you remember the saga where cristiano

22:23

ronaldo scored a goal and it basically

22:26

got um

22:28

it got nuno fired and not olay so that

22:31

so spurs got kante and not united you

22:33

think that they're gonna let that happen

22:34

again so i think that i think we're

22:36

going into the summer with the two

22:38

biggest names in the market still being

22:39

pochettino still being kante i i i think

22:43

one will be a free agent of his own

22:44

volition i think the other will get

22:46

fired um

22:48

maybe one of them will get the ray out

22:49

maybe pochettino will go to ray allen

22:51

maybe he will um it feels like

22:54

weirdly feels like a pochettino team now

22:57

what real does yeah

22:59

there's no major star power they're

23:02

they're investing in youth and they're

23:05

good they're not the galacticos anymore

23:07

right so i think no but i mean we will

23:09

see we will see that they will get

23:11

mbappe

23:13

they could get holland and mbappe

23:16

that's well that's fair but insane

23:20

okay so it's a question of what happens

23:21

first right because if pochettino does

23:23

go there does he say i don't want mbappe

23:26

or yeah he was great in paris let's get

23:28

him right so

23:30

so yeah i mean there's an effect i'm

23:32

just conjecture here i have no idea but

23:34

i'm saying like that could be the

23:35

inflection point for that they they are

23:37

still right after holland

23:39

they are still playing casimiro

23:42

modric and cruz still yeah

23:45

they're on like year eight

23:48

yep

23:49

it's just i mean i don't i don't know

23:51

together yeah

23:52

i don't know

23:53

if that still i don't know if some of

23:56

the longevity we're seeing you know

23:57

we're seeing it with tom brady and we're

23:59

seeing it with lebron and we're seeing

24:01

it with certain players

24:02

cristiano sorry uh messi less so i think

24:05

unless he's messy

24:08

not as good as he used to be uh let's be

24:10

very clear about what happened to messi

24:12

his soul he he doesn't feel the will to

24:15

go on anymore he's playing in paris

24:17

because there was nowhere else to go no

24:19

really else to go

24:21

the barcelona thing

24:23

changed him on a molecular level and he

24:26

doesn't have the drive anymore right

24:28

yeah you don't think so no think about

24:30

it right like ronaldo goes back to

24:32

united and he goes we're gonna do that

24:34

again and by the way

24:36

and and this is not to speak ill of

24:37

messi who i think is the more talented

24:39

of the two um

24:41

that

24:42

he has

24:44

an

24:45

unsafe insatiable drive right not that

24:47

messy doesn't

24:49

but it's different ronaldo

24:50

i think that's one thing ronaldo has had

24:52

over him and i think that that's where

24:54

the argument those who are in in

24:56

agreement with the ronaldo side of that

24:59

you know who who versus who argument

25:00

he's much more mj versus lebron

25:04

yeah yeah i agree and

25:07

but yeah i think that the he felt the

25:10

pride of barcelona

25:12

leave him and that has clearly taken its

25:15

toll um so it's not that he's still not

25:17

one of the best players in the world of

25:18

course he is but

25:20

there's not that killer i i feel the

25:23

same way i think that the episode of

25:24

ronaldo versus messi i i

25:27

you know it's it's ad nauseam but

25:30

i think ronaldo

25:32

being

25:33

for lack of a better word more worldly

25:36

just hey i left portugal at 19. i went

25:38

to england then i went to real madrid

25:40

and the biggest team in the world and i

25:41

said we were going to win the champions

25:43

league and we won three out of four and

25:45

now i'm going from here to there and i

25:46

went to uva and i'm going here

25:49

he's just got much more of a killer the

25:52

branding is he's much more out front

25:55

it's just

25:56

just he's just bigger and more

25:58

but to be more to him and in no

26:00

particular order it was batman and the

26:02

joker right like they played off of each

26:03

other for how long oh i think they

26:05

definitely pushed each other but i don't

26:06

think messi has the i want to be the

26:09

biggest media star in the world he'd

26:12

rather

26:12

go home

26:14

yes like he he doesn't care about that

26:16

and i think being out of barcelona has

26:18

hurt him for sure

26:21

and then there's neymar who i i don't

26:24

get the neymar thing i'll never get it i

26:26

never got it i don't care i don't think

26:28

i like brazilian players in general

26:30

whenever i hear people talk about

26:32

ronaldinho i get frustrated i'm like

26:34

what is it with these [ __ ] guys the

26:36

guy burnt out i don't get it i didn't

26:38

watch ronaldinho on a regular basis so i

26:40

can't say that i know everything and

26:42

anyone who's watching this and goes oh

26:44

you don't know anything about ronaldinho

26:46

[ __ ] plastic i'm like yes at some

26:48

point i had to be new to the game

26:50

i'm sorry

26:53

so treat me like a 10 year old i simply

26:56

didn't watch ronaldinho at the time

26:59

it didn't happen sorry barcelona

27:01

couldn't get past napoli today in the

27:04

europa league

27:05

so that's

27:07

yeah sure

27:09

but it's just it's a it's another

27:11

it's another moment of wow how far

27:13

they've fallen right

27:17

missing the shot and crying on the pitch

27:19

in the europa league how are you going

27:21

to handle it if you're crying in the

27:22

europa league yeah yeah so

27:25

look i mean

27:27

i i never had a dog in the fight i

27:28

always liked watching real madrid and

27:30

barcelona compete against each other and

27:32

i love the the plucky underdog piece of

27:34

athletico going back the last 10 15

27:37

years right um

27:39

and the whole the whole league is folded

27:42

into itself it almost feels like

27:45

uh

27:46

the few like the few years i got well

27:49

because the red sox were still good but

27:51

like after they wanted o4 it's like the

27:52

amer the rest of the american league

27:54

just kind of folded into itself

27:56

and that's kind of what syria not excuse

27:58

me la liga feels like right now so i

28:00

hope that they get their mojo back just

28:02

for the sake of the the neutral

28:04

there's a level of athleticism that when

28:06

you watch la liga games it's not there

28:09

they're just not

28:10

like adama triore is gonna kick that

28:13

league's ass right but again do you

28:16

remember what the kansas city royals

28:18

looked like in the heyday of the yankees

28:20

and red sox they all look like that now

28:23

yeah

28:24

right

28:24

because the yankees and red sox picked

28:26

up and left [ __ ] town

28:28

and you're left with royals versus

28:31

orioles in august yeah oh my god kill me

28:34

or that that mets that mets uh kansas

28:37

city world series was just like what's

28:39

happening baseball yeah yeah what's

28:41

going on stop letting teams win like

28:42

once cleveland wins oh the the indians

28:44

i'm calling them the indians then we'll

28:46

really have nothing left

28:48

yeah they should rig it well that i mean

28:50

that league's not going to start again

28:51

anyway um

28:53

let's go into what's coming up and then

28:56

we'll finish off and do a lot of time

28:59

about your poor team uh match-ups this

29:01

weekend the saturday early is west ham

29:04

versus newcastle all of a sudden that's

29:06

a really good [ __ ] that's a good game

29:07

that's a good game although sad news for

29:10

the l newcastle uh carrie trippy broken

29:13

foot ouch

29:14

ouch he had scored two free kicks in the

29:17

last two games west ham still fighting

29:20

still pushing nobody really wants top

29:22

four although the brighton loss does put

29:24

united squarely into that top four slot

29:27

they might not release it for the rest

29:29

of the season but the way they've been

29:30

going i don't expect that arsenal

29:33

brentford go to arsenal as much as our

29:35

brentford love festive's gone on i feel

29:38

like these are the teams that arsenal

29:40

just beats easily like brentford is that

29:42

feels like oh arsenal's just going to

29:44

beat brentford they've got revenge on

29:46

their mind for opening day right yeah go

29:48

back to that opening day game and think

29:50

about

29:51

where arsenal are yeah and where they

29:54

are now yeah it's night and day so

29:56

um and and i said this uh the other day

29:59

uh on my solo show that i think i think

30:01

arteta

30:03

hey it could be manager of the year

30:05

if he gets in the top four he will be

30:07

managing definitely yeah and and even

30:09

still he's he's in the conversation so

30:11

but i mean it does it does matter i

30:13

think like if city finished with 95

30:15

points i guess pep can't get it again

30:18

maybe anyway that's the hard part right

30:20

like we have yes

30:22

we almost have a traditional match week

30:24

in that we actually have six

30:27

seven a.m 10 a.m kickoffs so get your

30:29

goal zone out on on a peacock for you

30:32

people in europe we have a channel that

30:34

lets you watch all the games happen all

30:36

at the same time you guys have to watch

30:37

guys talk into screens oh my god but we

30:40

can actually watch peop a game and they

30:43

cut into the games i imagine red zone is

30:46

available over there right like no no no

30:48

no no no no no no like nfl nfl red zone

30:52

yes they probably have okay so that's

30:54

what it is guys we came up with red zone

30:57

because fantasy football became the

30:59

biggest thing in the nfl in the last 20

31:01

years so the nfl was like hey here's a

31:04

way to watch six games at once this is

31:06

[ __ ] great

31:08

and so basically peacock and nbc

31:11

who have the rights here in the states

31:12

well it's produced it's produced by the

31:14

premier league is it really yeah yeah

31:17

wow and they just don't let those guys

31:18

have it i love

31:19

how just

31:21

futile they are

31:22

in their own well

31:24

they've got to protect the

31:26

lower league football because if you

31:28

actually had the games be on television

31:30

no one would go to uh scunthorpe or

31:33

rotherham or uh kittyminster or uh

31:36

stockport

31:37

that's just the most broken [ __ ]

31:39

logic i've ever anyway i know it doesn't

31:41

matter so we carry on uh so that we have

31:44

burnley versus brighton burnley in the

31:46

relegation zone these are the games they

31:48

gotta win if burnley wants to get out of

31:50

it they've got to take points right now

31:52

i mean brighton will play them off the

31:54

park but burnley so i talked i talked a

31:56

little bit about this the other day i i

31:58

just it's over uh norwich watford

32:00

burnley pack your [ __ ] like that

32:03

because there's not there's not four

32:04

teams worse

32:06

three teams excuse me no no none of them

32:08

are catching newcastle right this is

32:09

kind of what i was talking about norwich

32:11

is four points but with literally 19

32:14

goals behind in difficult difference or

32:16

17. uh watford are six points behind

32:19

with where's goal difference so so you

32:22

have to

32:23

win

32:24

two or if you're burnley three more

32:27

games in newcastle the rest of the year

32:29

that's not going to happen that's not

32:31

going to happen no the trippy a thing is

32:32

big he's going to be out for six weeks

32:34

but

32:35

burnley

32:36

burnley have one win

32:38

they need at least what did we say eight

32:41

six

32:42

we said eight we paired it down to like

32:44

five right if they're lucky yeah yeah

32:46

but again they start winning now

32:49

they've already lost two of their four

32:51

games in hand and it's just it's the the

32:53

clock is

32:54

rapidly approaching midnight for sure

32:56

we'll see what brighton does at home uh

32:59

burnley that's a must win uh liverpool

33:01

norwich norwich at this point cannon

33:03

fodder at home liverpool

33:07

that's what's the line probably three

33:09

four yeah probably something like that

33:11

uh another another good game the now

33:13

resurgent southampton under the now

33:16

resurgent frank lampard frank lampard

33:18

has figured out that everton

33:21

sorry yeah the south hampton are playing

33:22

everton frank lampard has figured out

33:24

that evanston can't defend and so

33:26

they're not going to defend and they're

33:28

going to play a lot of fun games down

33:30

the stretch and see if their attacking

33:32

players can't do something so it'll be

33:34

more akin to the chelsea team that where

33:36

it was unacceptable to lose but for

33:38

everton swashbuckling is great as long

33:40

as they win

33:42

one out of three games they're gold yeah

33:45

there's nothing ahead of them in this

33:46

season anyway they're they're i mean if

33:49

this castle is going yeah villa watford

33:53

this is a watershed game i think villa

33:55

need a big performance against watford

33:57

watford are in bad shape uncle roy is

33:59

getting nothing out of this team uh

34:01

they're defensively terrible

34:03

and at least under their previous

34:05

managers uh they were scoring goals but

34:07

now they can't now they just give up

34:09

goals and now they can't score goals

34:11

either so they are really hitting yeah

34:14

but the bottom of the battery really

34:15

have had a wobble in the last month or

34:17

so yeah i would say i would say that's

34:19

true this is a game where they really

34:20

need to come out strong um

34:22

and and kind of reassert themselves as a

34:25

top half team because they've fallen

34:26

into 12th um and they're

34:30

their last game was a loss and i don't

34:32

remember who it was against that they

34:33

didn't expect them it was bad it was it

34:36

was everton

34:38

yeah yeah and that was a bad loss

34:40

everton and then the 3-3 against leeds

34:42

like they're having some trouble here so

34:44

uh oh no sorry they lost to newcastle

34:46

that was even worse well yeah

34:49

uh and then

34:50

there's a couple of interesting ones to

34:51

round out the week right we've got

34:53

crystal palace hosting chelsea i don't

34:55

know

34:56

the terms of conor gallagher's loan

34:58

agreement they may make him say oh no he

35:00

won't play he won't play yeah

35:02

they still let you play yeah yeah so

35:04

that's a big uh shot to palace but um

35:07

you know yeah but that could be that

35:09

could mean that that could mean that

35:10

alicia

35:12

and eze play with zaha which could be

35:14

fun sure yeah no i mean uh yeah no no

35:17

no gallagher

35:19

not noel gallagher but no gallagher

35:22

against uh against chelsea will be sad

35:26

um but again crystal palace

35:28

a problem leeds united vs man united

35:31

that will be good on sunday because

35:32

leeds will bring it and they will punch

35:35

men united in the face or they won't

35:37

united could just blow them away

35:39

right uh if leeds shows fight early this

35:43

is going to be one of those

35:45

lead scores early united bluebirds come

35:47

out it's at ellen road i don't trust

35:49

united at all i think their their game

35:51

plan is make manchester united flinch so

35:54

this is going to be a fun one to see if

35:55

they can succeed um wolves in leicester

35:58

i was going to round out the week on on

36:00

sunday at 11 30 eastern

36:03

dogs

36:05

two teams that you don't really know

36:07

what they are wolves have been you know

36:09

strong they're on the cusp of this top

36:11

four european spot uh conversation

36:14

lester are not

36:16

but if you would have if you would have

36:17

told me six months ago that lester is

36:19

going to be in seventh and and wolves

36:21

are going to be in 11th i go yeah that

36:22

makes 100 sense but if you would have

36:24

told me wolves in seventh and western

36:26

eleventh i've been like that's a little

36:27

funky so um it's gonna be interesting to

36:30

see if wolves can keep their run going

36:31

they're four out of five um the one loss

36:33

they had was to arsenal who are right

36:35

above them um

36:37

so they're winning games that they

36:38

should and that's how you like obviously

36:41

that's how you get into the top four in

36:42

european races um

36:45

but it's a tricky one i think that

36:46

they're home right they're at um they're

36:49

at the molineux so yeah so they should

36:50

have the advantage going in but um we'll

36:53

see we'll see i think lester can still

36:54

pack a punch on leicester are you ready

36:57

for this uh-huh

36:59

lester have a bottom five defense

37:03

yeah that's how bad they are

37:05

so uh

37:08

versus a have the how almost the best

37:11

defense third best i think yeah wolves

37:13

have the second best defense in the

37:14

league okay but they have two games less

37:16

so they have set

37:18

14 city are on 14 against then wolves

37:21

then chelsea but they've only played 23

37:23

games but they can't score so

37:26

we have an immovable object versus a

37:28

removable force of uh of leicester can

37:32

score they need to try to score they

37:34

need to play daca and madsen and get all

37:37

those guys moving and just

37:39

not try and sit on leads if they get a

37:42

lead they need to pour it on get to four

37:45

and hang on for four twos right just

37:47

lester need to be

37:49

1314 liverpool without luis suarez

37:52

that's how they have to play yeah

37:54

so i mean i mean

37:56

brendan rodgers should know how to do

37:57

that so

37:59

just get it going find out who your

38:01

louis suarez is he may be on your team

38:03

his name may be pats and daca

38:06

so just get that going and hopefully

38:08

that's that's a good game because i do i

38:10

do enjoy wolves they're weirdly a

38:13

defensive team that i don't find

38:15

boring because um neves and moutinho are

38:18

so so good when they play and they do

38:20

put things together and that brings us

38:22

to our friends manchester city versus

38:24

tottenham uh everything says you should

38:26

get blown away you can't score you can't

38:29

defend we're the top scoring team in the

38:31

league with the best defense you should

38:33

have a problem this should be a really

38:36

not in the face game this could be ugly

38:38

from the jump

38:39

but

38:40

in recent years

38:42

at the etihad i have

38:44

a lot of good memories

38:46

so i don't think

38:49

tottenham are a team that get up for the

38:51

big games which is good because they're

38:52

going to have a handful of them coming

38:54

up um

38:55

but i think that like i said off the top

38:58

you know

38:59

they're all of the reason and logic say

39:01

tottenham are going to get blown to

39:03

pieces in this game and if city score an

39:06

early goal as we say pretty much every

39:08

week about city then they will

39:10

but if and and that's been the thing for

39:12

me with spurs against wolves against i

39:15

forget who it was before that but it was

39:17

it was shaky

39:19

and southampton oh they got absolutely

39:21

battered by southampton so and but it

39:24

was it wasn't over the course of 90

39:26

minutes per se as much as it was in the

39:28

first 15 you didn't leave your own 18

39:30

year old to me to me it's

39:33

if city can shackle sunny it's sunny who

39:36

kills city it's sunny on the break

39:40

is kyle walker on the team tyler

39:43

walker's got to be in that game he's got

39:45

to be the controlling thing because

39:48

spurs are too good not to get breaks

39:50

there will be moments it's going to

39:53

happen but will it be two

39:55

yeah the problem i find is if ben davies

39:58

starts

39:58

yeah i mean all that all that defense

40:00

problem is if something if you know

40:02

you're still not going to have skip i'm

40:03

pretty sure in the midfield so did he

40:05

die

40:06

he's still working through something i

40:08

don't remember exactly what but but so

40:09

so

40:11

we're we're pining for eric dyer this is

40:13

where we are

40:16

weird but weird you know watch the first

40:18

10 minutes of this game not so much

40:20

about how city look but about how

40:21

tottenham look because if they're at

40:23

sixes and sevens and they're a [ __ ] show

40:24

at the back well

40:25

buckle up because it's gonna be a bumpy

40:27

ride will have the advantage of time

40:30

you'll have had more time to right

40:33

because you played midweek city will

40:35

have played and been in portugal and

40:37

back yeah so that is one thing but it's

40:39

not like city don't have a whole other

40:41

group to play so it's fine they they

40:43

made the trip but i mean

40:45

let's see when did you score in that

40:47

game uh because it was over almost as

40:49

soon as it started it was done they were

40:51

up for at halftime it was not a yeah it

40:53

was a very low stress game

40:56

exactly so it wasn't as though

40:58

they were they were really uh exerting

41:00

themselves yes 7 17 32 and 44. i will

41:04

give you i will give you i will give you

41:05

your fear stat of the day you ready

41:07

since losing two nil at home to crystal

41:09

palace in october man city have earned

41:11

43 from available 45 in the premier

41:14

league going 14 1 and nil with the

41:17

exception being the 1-1 draw last month

41:19

for southampton manchester city have

41:21

lost just one of their last 11 home

41:24

league games against tottenham going

41:27

eight and two with two draws before we

41:30

were having gone down 2-1 in february i

41:32

remember the loss and we drew we drew

41:35

with you

41:36

uh the 2-2 a couple years ago when we

41:39

had 35 shots on opening day

41:42

uh

41:43

that was the that was the laporte

41:45

handball that wasn't a handball

41:48

no that was the lucas

41:50

lucas comes on late uh and and scores a

41:53

header like in the first touch of the

41:54

game from him um when they had the green

41:57

jerseys i think it was:

41:59

the:

42:02

[ __ ] [ __ ] games that you guys

42:04

have pulled out of your asses that was

42:05

2018 19. no because it was like right

42:08

after it was like it was before the

42:10

champions league final but it was like

42:11

right after i actually let you guys

42:13

let's let's let's see let's really go

42:15

down memory lane yeah let's do this you

42:18

[ __ ] [ __ ]

42:20

and we got you we got listen if we win

42:23

we could do the double

42:25

yes which would be

42:27

completely shocking let's see uh we've

42:30

got well i think

42:31

this season you won one nil yep right

42:34

yep uh and then the efl cup we beat you

42:37

one nil the mourinho got fired game

42:40

where's the 2-2 the 2-2 was the first

42:43

week of the season

42:44

uh the expected goals was 2.9 to 0.3 on

42:48

a 2-2 that was

42:50

19 that was the opening week of of of of

42:54

of

42:55

1920.

43:00

at the etihad yes okay pochettino is

43:02

still there lamela scored and morris

43:05

scored in the fifth six minutes yeah

43:07

city

43:07

city were up

43:09

2-1 and then maura came on in the second

43:11

half i remember ready for the stats here

43:13

are you ready for this one yeah

43:15

city had 30 shots eight on target you

43:18

had hit two out of three

43:20

yep

43:21

that's that's the formula

43:22

all right and then uh there was a goal

43:24

chalked off in the final minute

43:26

uh yes

43:28

uh it's happened again it's happened

43:30

again yeah i remember that was the

43:32

laporte uh game right that was uh brutal

43:35

uh it was good old good old friend nico

43:38

domendi was still on the team um

43:41

uh you know this there was some old

43:42

friends that uh were in this game your

43:44

team had a lot of old friends uh

43:46

erickson was still around [ __ ] around

43:49

so playing

43:51

:

43:54

we were in the stadium already

43:57

um

43:58

there's been some real

43:59

bangers where city just completely

44:02

annihilated

44:05

you've had some under one goal games

44:08

under one we had the champions league

44:09

the champions league games

44:12

um

44:12

where we actually went 1-1

44:15

um

44:16

the fourth and then [ __ ] bonkers oh

44:18

my god it was that was still the wildest

44:21

game i've ever seen um and then the

44:23

thing the one i remember the game that

44:25

eat you at the etihad was the:

44:27

valentine's day um and i've said this on

44:30

the show before it was uh lamela

44:33

through the pa through the legs of the

44:35

city center back to erickson in the 85th

44:38

minute i believe um and a man kissed me

44:42

on the lips after that game uh and it

44:44

was valentine's day so i cheated on my

44:46

now wife with a man uh i mean but there

44:49

are some real [ __ ] names on this team

44:51

that no city fan ever remembers again

44:54

fernando people no one remembers

44:56

zabaleta and cliche in the back i mean

44:58

this is this is year two pellegrini not

45:02

not right

45:03

this is your ascendant the ascendant

45:05

spurs yeah this is the declining post

45:09

pep is about to come i think pep may

45:11

have been announced already and the team

45:13

completely checks out

45:15

yeah

45:16

they're

45:19

who called him a dusty [ __ ] was it uh

45:22

was it it's the coach from newcastle the

45:25

[ __ ] with the white hair oh steve

45:27

bruce no no no the the other guy who did

45:30

the dance against

45:31

in the in the pardon yes yes he called

45:34

him a dusty gun oh that's fantastic

45:37

what a great what a great insult um

45:41

that that 2-1 game

45:43

also walker was on our side still and i

45:46

forget who this city i think it was

45:48

sterling it had of course it was

45:49

sterling he's away and in frame comes

45:52

kyle walker like [ __ ] road runner

45:56

and he shoves him in the back in the

45:58

penalty area no call no call

46:01

and like my my

46:03

balls are in my throat i'm like oh my

46:05

god how the [ __ ] did you get away with

46:07

that

46:08

that always see so there are two things

46:10

about raheem sterling

46:12

that i love about him one

46:14

he i believe and we'd have to check and

46:17

i don't care if it's true it doesn't

46:18

matter i believe he's the all-time

46:20

leader in penalties called against like

46:22

he's drawn the most penalties in premier

46:24

league history okay he also doesn't get

46:27

any penalties called like it could be

46:29

even more

46:30

yeah yeah because he's he draws so many

46:33

because i mean the great thing about

46:34

raheem sterling is as much as

46:37

he's frustrating and can't finish

46:39

he gets to where he's supposed to be oh

46:42

yeah and so he gets knocked over all the

46:44

time

46:45

but

46:47

he's but he's also really strong and

46:49

gets in position and runs where he needs

46:51

to be and when he's in form

46:53

he may end up in a top five all-time

46:56

premier league goal scorers it's just

46:57

like for a guy who can't shoot

47:00

and has a chocolate foot

47:02

meaning it it

47:04

spins it cracks

47:06

the guy is just scores goals he's like

47:09

he's he's more than a tap-in merchant

47:11

because he's not a big lumberer who

47:13

stays in the box he he does take people

47:15

on but you know he does get into places

47:17

and he started at [ __ ] 16 years old

47:20

and he there's nothing slowing down

47:21

about him and i he's hard to love which

47:25

is weird i get that all right so then

47:27

it's it's time what say you on saturday

47:30

at 12 30 eastern

47:32

i'm going hard i'm going to give you

47:34

guys a goal but it's going to be like

47:35

4-1 i get that

47:37

i'm i'm taking i'm taking one nil spurs

47:40

no no i can't you're not stopping

47:42

no one won one more you're going and

47:44

then doris loris is men of the match

47:47

he [ __ ] you last week did you talk

47:50

about how [ __ ] he was no he didn't

47:53

he didn't dude he kicked an atom ball to

47:56

davies and he had two chances to block

47:58

the other one and he hit it right to

47:59

[ __ ] potence no he punched it out and

48:02

and i as i said it went to him and as

48:04

not potents and jimin has made a great

48:06

pen the volley but no i mean first and

48:08

foremost he has earned the right to make

48:11

as many mistakes as he wants for two

48:13

reasons a he's one of the best keepers

48:15

shot stoppers in the world if not the

48:17

best and

48:18

he plays with that defense in front of

48:21

him every [ __ ] week

48:23

they're awful okay

48:25

so

48:27

even if i believe that that goal was his

48:29

fault which i still don't

48:31

it's okay put it on his tab because he

48:34

has

48:34

a lot more to go before we're all even

48:36

with davies and sanchez and [ __ ] um

48:40

who's the other one royal okay that

48:43

guy's bat yeah and tanganga and aurier

48:47

and like and

48:49

concussed for tongan okay

48:52

poor concussed

48:54

is he still somewhere just throwing up

48:55

from his concussion

48:58

i should never say any mean words about

49:00

super yawn i love him i'm sorry i'm

49:02

sorry john

49:03

um but no so i'll take it i'll take a

49:06

1-1

49:09

we need that needs to be your [ __ ]

49:11

you need to change your fantasy team

49:12

name to concur yeah

49:14

that'd be amazing vomiting yawn

49:17

About the Podcast

Squeaky Bum Time: An English Premier League Podcast
We cover news from the Premier League, The FA Cup, Carabao Cup and the UEFA Champions League... as long as there are English clubs playing!
Laurent Courtines and Mike Salerno, two friends who love football and talk nonsense about things that make most people uncomfortable.

And sometimes Premier League football.

We focus on English football, talk about the clubs in the top flight, the relegation battle and how our beloved clubs Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur are doing across all competition domestically and abroad.
Specifically, the Premier League, The FA Cup, Carabao Cup, UEFA Champions League, UEFA Europa League.
During internationals, we'll talk CONCACAF, UEFA, The United States National team, Mexico, Canada and the FIFA World Cup along with the European Championship.

About your hosts

Laurent Courtines

Profile picture for Laurent Courtines
Laurent Courtines (co-host)- Since 1894, providing amateur, crap football punditry with a severe Manchester City bias. I don't hate your team, I just hate you.
I'm middle aged, I'm American, I never played football (or soccer for that matter) and I may not have actually watched your team play, but I'll talk about it anyway.
