In Episode #115 of the Squeaky Bum Time Podcast, Mike and Laurent discuss Cristiano Ronaldo's spectacular last-second equalizer to save Ole's bacon again, the rest of the English teams' fate in Champions League, and preview this weekend's massive Manchester Derby. Also:

  • Newcastle zeroing in on a new manager, and their choice might leave something to be desired
  • Tottenham win first game with Antonio Conte in typically dysfunctional fashion
  • Roma need a late equalizer to survive two straight losses to our Norwegian friends, Bodø Glimt!

00:01

hello and good evening

00:04

to the squeaky bum time podcast with

00:06

mike and laurent it is friday november

00:09

5th

00:10

in this episode we round up the

00:12

champions league that we forgot to talk

00:13

about on monday newcastle might have a

00:15

new manager and we preview the big ole

00:20

manchester darby a game i hate because

00:22

it's always in the face but first mike

00:25

we've got to talk about ronaldo again

00:27

how many times can he bail out all a he

00:31

did it again he did it again there's so

00:34

much

00:36

there's again again again he's

00:38

responsible like when you think about

00:39

like how much

00:40

a player is responsible for points wise

00:43

and both the champions league in the in

00:45

the premier league holy [ __ ] he's

00:46

probably we're only a third of the way

00:48

through the season roughly maybe a

00:50

quarter and he's responsible for like 12

00:52

to 15 points it's insane

00:56

what was funny about the whole thing is

00:58

like

00:59

he's going to have a good season and

01:00

united are going to have a bad season

01:02

you mean like juventus

01:04

yeah

01:05

yeah well i mean

01:06

i it's just this weird thing where like

01:09

i was listening to all the podcasts and

01:11

all the things now one thing that's

01:13

funny is remember to stay with narrative

01:15

if city

01:17

if city lose to united they're tied on

01:19

points isn't that crazy

01:21

it doesn't make any sense and perhaps a

01:23

genius and all these gonna get fired

01:24

yeah yeah

01:28

this champions league we're talking

01:29

about they drew with adelanta again they

01:32

get a really good goal early from bruno

01:34

a really nice connection clearly he and

01:37

ronaldo have a portuguese love fest

01:40

thing going on you know i feel like

01:42

bruno uses his beard and puts it right

01:44

into ronaldo's ass and they really have

01:46

a good time there i know that's not an

01:48

appropriate joke to our friend who rares

01:51

a review it's okay

01:53

it's funny they're jokes

01:54

they're jokes but again atalanta was

01:57

better zapata was better

02:00

veron went off all the same things that

02:03

happened with united were the same pogba

02:05

was all over the place the same [ __ ] and

02:07

then ronaldo late game

02:10

edge of the box bing bang bosh one two

02:13

with rat with um with greenwood who was

02:16

like can i can i shoot here can i just

02:19

let me shoot uh but he really was

02:22

covered and ronaldo was free and ronaldo

02:24

again just

02:25

world-class finish after world-class

02:27

finish after world-class finish and he

02:29

[ __ ] bails out united

02:32

again i just

02:34

not even it's not even different like

02:36

they literally had a 2-2 draw with

02:37

ronaldo bailing them out a week ago yeah

02:40

he did it again

02:42

he's incredible

02:43

he really with that point right they go

02:45

out they go top of group f yeah they're

02:47

most important they're totally fine yeah

02:49

well now they are because if they hadn't

02:52

gotten that point then atlanta would be

02:54

in they would literally have gone from

02:55

first to third and atlanta would go from

02:57

third to first right so there's still a

02:59

lot to play for there's two games left

03:01

one against villarreal and one against

03:03

young boys which i'm never going to not

03:05

laugh at um

03:07

the thing is

03:09

they have a europa league group and

03:11

they're struggling

03:13

ah i think atlanta is a champions league

03:15

team at this point

03:16

or they're a really good europa league

03:18

they're missing their whole defense

03:20

they never had a defense but the defense

03:23

they had is not there

03:25

right like what if they were decent i

03:28

mean it's just anyway i'm gonna kill

03:30

olay until he's gone and then i'm gonna

03:32

miss him because they're gonna get a

03:34

real manager and i'm gonna be like why

03:36

did i want him gone uh what will i talk

03:38

about um

03:39

they'll have to go to spain right let's

03:41

let's stay with the united for a second

03:43

they go to spain to put play villarreal

03:46

if they don't get three points the good

03:48

news for them is that they're gonna get

03:49

well they might get three they have the

03:51

easiest game left in the last game of

03:54

the year but they lost it already but

03:56

they lost it once

03:57

and but but you've got to think that you

04:00

can bank on three points there so

04:03

here's the thing though with united and

04:05

we know this already

04:06

that game

04:08

they will take lightly

04:10

because it's not a name brand team no

04:12

not if they need it not if they need it

04:14

um

04:15

i don't i don't trust i don't trust this

04:17

group of players to feel like that's a

04:19

big game i understand that and they are

04:21

traveling i'm sorry they know they're at

04:23

home they're at home with the group the

04:26

knockout stage on their line that's

04:27

three points come on that happened to

04:29

them last year against leipzig and they

04:31

blew it yeah but leipzig is not young

04:32

boys yet leipzig could could actually

04:34

pip you right so yeah um

04:36

no i mean look so let's

04:38

let's project a little bit

04:40

right let's project a little bit

04:42

man united beats young boys in that last

04:44

game so almost as if the order was

04:46

switched it's more fun this way but

04:49

let's say let's be fair and say man

04:51

united are going to finish the group

04:52

with a minimum of 10 points

04:54

adam gets you through

04:56

yes because atlanta and the villarreal

04:59

one of them the most they can have is 10

05:01

and it most and at that point

05:03

uh the gold difference unless they lose

05:05

games yeah

05:06

right but but okay

05:08

stay with me for a second because yeah

05:10

if

05:11

hmm

05:12

are atalanta and villarreal playing

05:14

twice

05:16

everybody plays no sorry everybody no i

05:18

know i'm trying to figure out who plays

05:20

who atalanta will also play young boys

05:22

then

05:23

they play them next right so you've got

05:25

to assume by that same token that

05:28

atalanta will be on eight minimum

05:31

man united will be on 10 minimum and

05:33

there will be two games that are the

05:35

inflection point will be atlanta has

05:37

young boys and villarreal young boys

05:39

away

05:40

uh villarreal at home at home that's

05:43

interesting because then what i'm saying

05:45

is let's say

05:46

atalanta's on eight after the after the

05:49

fifth match day um united is united and

05:53

villarreal

05:54

at old trafford i'm sorry no that's on

05:56

the road um

05:58

that that's the game that's going to

06:00

decide the group right because um if

06:03

villarreal gets a result out of that

06:06

then they go to atlanta whoever wins

06:09

that's a that's a win or go home game

06:12

for both teams is going to be on

06:14

united's going to be on 10 or 11 or or

06:16

it could be 12. i'm sorry it could be 10

06:19

11 or 13. um you're losing your mind

06:21

what are you doing what i'm projecting

06:24

is who the villarreal atlanta game at

06:26

the end of the group is going to be a

06:28

fight to the death a draw basically

06:30

hurts

06:33

it'll hurt atlanta more i think

06:36

no it'll hurt villarreal more because

06:38

atlanta is going to be on eight

06:40

unless villarreal beats united so a lot

06:43

clearly a lot to play for on group f

06:45

still yeah somebody has to do the math

06:47

and figure all this out but yeah

06:50

again

06:50

united did not have a good performance

06:53

they got bailed out again against teams

06:55

that they should be beating the bigger

06:58

news on this and this segways into the

07:00

the manchester derby wait i figured it

07:02

out one more

07:05

man if

07:07

what you're rooting for is a villarreal

07:09

result against united because atlanta

07:11

will beat young boys

07:13

always but i'm saying unless you're a

07:14

united fan you're in neutral because

07:16

then that means atlanta on eight and

07:18

villarreal on either eight or ten

07:20

which means united's gonna probably beat

07:22

young boys that'll give them

07:24

but that vil real atlanta game will be

07:27

the most fun if they both get a result

07:29

in match week five

07:30

anyway

07:31

thank thank you michael you're welcome

07:33

uh the that rolls into the

07:36

we'll talk about the manchester derby in

07:37

a second but verand going out is a big

07:40

deal united have not had a clean sheet

07:42

without varane in the team just

07:44

something for the manchester darby put

07:45

that in your pocket but i do want to

07:47

talk about liverpool who have developed

07:50

a nice little blood feud with athletic

07:52

with uh with uh cholo simeone's team at

07:55

anfield and liverpool again you know

07:58

what i don't want to say it out loud but

08:00

i'm going to say it out loud that's the

08:02

best team in europe right now they score

08:04

goals like city used to score goals they

08:07

still give up a goal now and again

08:09

but they are popping it around

08:11

one of the things i noticed was athletic

08:14

atletico basically putting three guys

08:16

around salah whenever he got the ball

08:18

and what would happen he'd pop it out to

08:20

trent alexander arnold he'd hold his

08:22

head up check the wind

08:25

and cross it to giotta the greatest tiny

08:28

person who heads a ball ever he's

08:30

basically jota basically is like a six

08:33

foot eight center who leads the league

08:34

in blocks like i don't know how the [ __ ]

08:36

he does it but he's always off the back

08:38

shoulder always in the air always

08:41

scoring goals on headers and trent

08:43

alexander arnold one of them was on

08:45

purpose one of them was a chasse that

08:47

was such a bad shot that jota just

08:50

deflected it in

08:52

but uh yeah liverpool win again a red

08:54

card that was weird there was a red card

08:57

in this game

08:58

um

08:59

because monet got his achilles dragged

09:02

down and then the guy ran away and

09:04

didn't want to get the card like it was

09:05

:

09:08

in every car no that was like 95

09:10

right and then he started doing that and

09:12

the ref's like you know what [ __ ] you

09:14

this yellow put it away straight red

09:16

[ __ ] off

09:18

so athletic atletico then madrid goes

09:20

down um the love repair a love affair

09:22

between suarez and athletic is over uh

09:25

they don't give a [ __ ] about liverpool

09:27

joe's tells you what you know about the

09:29

um

09:30

the loyalty of scouse they can remember

09:33

the 96 for 40 years but guy almost wins

09:36

you the league no we're gonna boom every

09:38

time he tested the ball you're [ __ ]

09:39

hypocrites [ __ ] you scousers

09:42

did i say it i did they're jokes folks

09:44

[Laughter]

09:47

we got terrible that's terrible that the

09:48

people

09:52

we're going to read this on air because

09:54

it's actually pretty good it's the best

09:55

uh it's actually my favorite uh ranking

09:58

rating we've ever gotten um

10:01

elite elitism racism brings it down

10:04

uh from tuesday from our friend tom

10:06

conwell now the best part about this

10:08

rating is that it gives us three stars

10:11

which means he actually likes the

10:13

content but he just doesn't enjoy a

10:16

sense of humor he goes good football

10:18

discussion

10:19

tom thank you tom

10:21

marred with the mockery of the

10:23

underprivileged in two recent episodes

10:26

now this probably yes yes that's true

10:28

i don't remember what we said uh okay it

10:30

doesn't matter we don't i'm certain that

10:32

it's true i actually sent that to you

10:34

you know what

10:35

tom it's not mike it's me i'm the one

10:38

who brings it up uh i

10:40

have this habit of just trying to be

10:43

near the edge of something if you don't

10:45

like people talking about other people

10:48

being bombed during wars and having to

10:50

be connected to ball games

10:52

that's me you know i'm gonna make a

10:53

little bit yeah i'm gonna make fun of

10:55

hillsboro it's terrible it's awful we

10:58

all know it but it also is a little bit

11:00

something to make fun of because it was

11:02

dragged out

11:03

just a little bit now did the police

11:04

cover it up sure anyway i'm talking

11:06

about something else there's a

11:07

documentary if you want to watch it it's

11:09

also four hours long it's not that

11:12

interesting i got crushed it's over

11:14

there i'd rather be stampeded than watch

11:16

four hours of that [ __ ] um but tom

11:19

here's an offer for you you've got us on

11:21

instagram you've got us on twitter

11:23

squeaky bum pod um chat with us tell us

11:26

what you thought was wrong we'll invite

11:27

you on the show and we will you could be

11:28

genuinely we'd love to have you and

11:30

that's not like an attack this isn't fox

11:32

news we'd like hey tell us why we're

11:34

idiots we know we're idiots

11:37

we i promise you

11:38

we're not that clever enough to know how

11:40

to do an attack hit yeah we're just like

11:42

hey look a person i love you man yeah

11:45

okay we love you for listening we love

11:47

you for rating and we love you for

11:49

offending you so yeah yeah sorry about

11:51

that uh but yeah atletico liverpool is

11:53

getting a little bit of a blood feud i

11:55

like it it's clashes and styles it's two

11:58

super duper passionate fan bases it's

12:00

two

12:01

managers who run their team on emotion

12:03

but use that emotion for different

12:05

things right klopp uses the motion to

12:07

drive the team to attack and simeone

12:10

uses his emotion to drive his team to

12:12

kick you

12:13

and uh that that clash of ideas was

12:16

really cool and there's a little bit of

12:18

vengeance i think right now you know

12:20

atleti put liverpool out last year uh in

12:23

the final in the ground zero for covid

12:26

in liverpool uh that game that nearly

12:28

killed half the city um

12:30

but uh you know and then and also spread

12:32

over to spain right it was a it was it

12:35

was a coveted bomb that happened it

12:37

reminded me of like a fuzz bomb from

12:38

agent usa if anyone played video games

12:41

in:

12:44

happened i love that game that was fun

12:47

it made me petrified of liverpool and

12:49

then actually reminded me that city beat

12:52

the [ __ ] out of them and i still can't

12:54

believe that we only drew 2-2 we could

12:56

have won that game anyway an amazing

12:58

performance by my team i think that's

12:59

our peak game um now i have to i have i

13:02

do have to talk about back go back to

13:05

manchester for my team and talk about

13:07

the manchester darby this is a game yeah

13:10

i i i loathe this game

13:13

i loathe it i hate it the manchester

13:15

darby has

13:17

very famous moments for city in the six

13:20

one

13:20

the why always me game and all these

13:23

famous games but it doesn't feel like

13:26

city

13:27

has united's number in the season we

13:29

were going to win the league and did end

13:31

up with a thousand a hundred points city

13:34

completely annihilates united in the

13:36

first half two nil in:

13:40

in the first half like it was like i was

13:41

running around dancing around texting

13:43

people telling them i can't believe your

13:44

team's gonna lose city lost that game

13:46

three two at home because paul pogba

13:48

went [ __ ]

13:50

white-hot nuclear

13:52

and wasn't that that was the game they

13:54

could have they could have

13:56

clinched the title trafford

13:57

was it

13:58

was at the end yes no it was at the at

14:00

the end right right but nonetheless it

14:02

was against united yeah

14:04

and there's been a couple years they

14:05

basically they were like we know you're

14:07

gonna win the title we don't [ __ ]

14:09

care not on our watch and you did it the

14:11

next week and it was almost like it was

14:13

like it didn't it didn't count right

14:14

anymore right it's again it's this

14:18

city

14:19

can only dominate narrative

14:22

by their play

14:24

we don't have characters yeah we only

14:26

have pep so city only pop up into the

14:29

show

14:30

as like

14:31

we're like the assassin in uh in

14:34

goodfellas you know it's like oh this is

14:35

my the guy shows up in the suit and goes

14:38

and whacks people he's cool he's really

14:40

good at his job but he never talks in

14:42

the movie right so that's kind of what

14:44

city are we're a sicilian assassin who

14:47

doesn't talk we're luca brassie

14:49

basically

14:51

it's not ego i like that i like that

14:52

reference or the other one there's a

14:54

later one i can't remember his name

14:55

anyway whatever the assassins are that's

14:57

what city are and then um the other

15:00

pieces that i have to sort of i'm

15:01

worried for and call out when you watch

15:03

the game really pay attention if kevin

15:05

de bruyne plays

15:07

pay attention to what he looks like how

15:09

he moves how many passes he blows and

15:12

misses he's been playing bad city fans

15:14

will tell you for

15:16

the whole season let me ask you a

15:18

question he's just

15:19

he's not moving well he's a mess

15:22

like harry kane is

15:24

yeah yeah but okay is he playing poorly

15:28

or is he playing poorly for kevin de

15:30

bruyne

15:32

he's playing poorly for kevin de bruyne

15:34

okay so he's a he's an above average

15:36

premier league midfielder oh he's still

15:38

the best team on half the teams in the

15:40

league but he's not the best but he's

15:43

not the best player in the league

15:45

he's not the best player on city right

15:46

now like he misses passes uh he doesn't

15:50

do things and this goes back to

15:52

something i said i probably said it a

15:53

while ago probably at the beginning of

15:54

the season the jack greelish buy didn't

15:57

make sense if he's a sterling

15:58

replacement the jack girlish buy makes

16:00

sense if he's the kevin de bruyne

16:02

replacement that's what he is and if you

16:05

watch this game that city just played it

16:07

won pretty easily against bruges

16:08

whatever it's fine

16:12

grealish

16:13

started drifting to the middle

16:16

started to play in the spaces that kevin

16:18

de bruyne plays in but not as deep so

16:21

higher up but in the middle of the pitch

16:24

made a couple of really good passes to

16:26

free foden foden is just straight up at

16:28

number nine now which is [ __ ]

16:29

incredible

16:32

he's awesome um he's just great and city

16:35

played well and again

16:38

again the consailo thing when conselo is

16:41

at his best he's literally unplayable uh

16:44

except when he isn't

16:45

he hit the post from like 30 yards on a

16:48

on a through ball at the broin ball from

16:50

grealish which was weird and odd i'm

16:52

like why is really going back there a de

16:55

bruyne-ish ball from the groin-ish ball

16:58

from the relationship okay yeah right so

17:00

you could

17:01

no i understand that but he was deeper

17:03

it was a through ball yeah perfectly

17:05

weighted the whole thing where you're

17:06

just like

17:07

okay

17:08

he's gonna be the second eight and he'll

17:11

play with silva and gundagon and it'll

17:13

be something different and we'll see

17:15

what happens and then what was nice was

17:17

sterling got on for a cameo on his

17:20

preferred side which is the right side

17:22

and he got to play the position he

17:24

played when he used to play with sunny

17:26

the best version of manchester city i

17:28

ever saw was

17:29

sane on the left on the on the right on

17:31

the left i can i never know another sony

17:33

on the left aguero sterling with silver

17:36

and de bruyne that was the best version

17:38

of the team in fernandinho that was the

17:40

unstoppable version right that was cool

17:43

right and they can't play that way

17:45

anymore right so they're still trying

17:47

like what cities in is they're in

17:49

transition

17:50

right

17:51

but still awesome so that's why like i

17:53

don't get bummed out when they lose i'm

17:55

just like well

17:57

we won the league last year and

17:58

shouldn't have won because everyone else

17:59

was awful and liverpool is fired up and

18:03

if they win the league i would not be

18:04

surprised but we're talking champions

18:06

league uh but that's really where we are

18:08

we have chelsea ho-hum they get it done

18:11

win one nil again not scoring a lot

18:15

melmo you gotta [ __ ] kick mama's ass

18:17

we'll talk a little bit more about

18:19

chelsea in a bit but um i look through

18:21

the rest of the tables as far as the

18:22

english teams are concerned chelsea

18:24

is gonna struggle to finish first but

18:26

they're through yeah um

18:28

united probably through like we talked

18:30

about them more than enough already the

18:32

team never throw through city or through

18:34

um there there will be some struggles

18:36

for the top spots uh have psg and city

18:39

played for a second time yet no okay so

18:42

that's the way but the way but the way

18:44

psg

18:45

are sort of they're capitulating

18:48

they're not cohesive

18:49

very hard team to coach right like

18:52

pochettino doesn't

18:54

seem to be able to get his message

18:56

across

18:57

you know just as far as he can tough

18:59

team to coach i just

19:01

if we could uh

19:04

if we could have held that a little bit

19:05

longer no no no no no no

19:07

we'll we'll go on to kante's spurs in a

19:10

minute because he was there today in the

19:12

conference which by the way has an

19:14

amazing uh intro video the green laser

19:16

beams it's a terrible looking trophy but

19:19

the intro is amazing yeah if

19:21

if there was a lampshade trash can it

19:23

would be this trophy lampshade trash can

19:26

i don't care they got lasers [ __ ]

19:27

lasers

19:29

um yeah so we'll we'll finish up our

19:31

european conversation um with

19:34

yeah the uh the and not even the nit

19:37

like the aloha invitational

19:39

of europe

19:40

um

19:41

yeah it was the first give a little

19:43

respect hold on west ham through in the

19:45

europa the real europa the real europa

19:48

uh lester still struggling gonna have to

19:50

put themselves through they got another

19:52

draw so they're a little sputtery so

19:55

just keep that in mind and before we go

19:57

to spurs we had a rematch

20:00

in rome of roma

20:02

and boo

20:04

boo and

20:06

our friends from bird

20:09

were winning they were winning ah

20:12

they went up one nil and they went up

20:14

2-1

20:15

but the roma pulled one back in the 84th

20:19

and they drew 2-2 so who wrote roma took

20:23

one out of a possible six points

20:28

uh and and so yeah i mean if i look at

20:30

the two by the way that team

20:31

if you go look and read all about them

20:33

they're actually one of these like

20:36

super stories that are just they come up

20:38

like six divisions that's funny they've

20:39

got a new they're one of those like

20:41

super teams won the league for the first

20:43

time in 35 years probably have a cool

20:46

young you know that whole thing didn't

20:47

someone get mad at us who was from

20:49

boulder it might have been tom on

20:51

twitter

20:52

you know maybe thomas is that is that

20:55

we're elitist against norwegians

20:59

against bear [ __ ] i suppose but no

21:01

no we need to get back we need to get

21:05

done we can

21:07

do it we need to give them their due

21:09

they are currently leading the trash can

21:12

uh lampshade group

21:14

with roma in it so there's two two clubs

21:17

that you'd be like yeah you're gonna win

21:19

your group against all these teams that

21:20

don't matter no

21:22

neither roma nor spurs are leading their

21:24

group right now so

21:25

full marks in the in the europa

21:28

conference league that's right yeah

21:29

they've got no you know jose wants to

21:31

win that [ __ ] thing

21:32

oh of course so he can just say that he

21:34

did but and you know that roma and spurs

21:37

are going to go through each other at

21:38

some point and in the knockout stages it

21:39

has to be the way

21:41

kante will beat mourinho

21:43

but no but hold on but like these guys

21:46

they've got their goal difference of

21:48

plus seven thanks to their [ __ ] kicking

21:50

of roma last week or two weeks ago and

21:53

um you know they're they're in the

21:54

driver's seat they've played roma twice

21:56

they play zorya and

21:58

cska sofia

22:00

so those are the teams that they play

22:02

and they've already got a point

22:03

advantage on roma so they're looking

22:06

like they're pretty much through

22:08

uh and good honor

22:10

by the way

22:11

the bird the glimlit logo is incredible

22:14

the jesus is very well hidden

22:16

yeah i didn't even notice that after

22:18

they beat roma

22:20

put their logo in the [ __ ] app

22:22

um

22:23

but yeah there's there's three teams

22:25

right and i said this before on the show

22:26

tottenham wren

22:28

and roma are really the three

22:30

name brands if you go through this

22:32

tournament and you look at all the

22:34

all the results from the last few days

22:36

um

22:37

and

22:38

and yeah i mean i guess transitioning

22:40

then to spurs

22:42

wren leads the group by a full game and

22:45

the next game i believe is against spurs

22:48

um who struggled today it was an

22:50

eventful game i only caught about

22:52

i only caught about 15 to 20 minutes of

22:54

it and it was still eventful for that

22:56

period right so spurs go up three mil

22:59

and then in the first in a half an hour

23:02

in a half an hour and then bang bang

23:04

vitesse vitesse uh strike back with two

23:07

so it's three to two at half time right

23:10

my guy cody romero uh gets two yellow

23:13

cards in the first 10 minutes of the

23:14

second half so wait wait wait way to

23:16

show how good you are to your new coach

23:18

buddy yeah right but i i mean he's he

23:20

listen he had the most serious he had

23:22

the most yellow cards in sorry last year

23:24

he's an aggressive center back we saw it

23:26

in the west ham game where he was

23:27

screaming and i think it was four niles

23:29

um he's he's

23:31

he's one of your father's footballers

23:33

right he's full-blooded argentinian like

23:35

i'm gonna stab you i have it in my sock

23:37

right now don't [ __ ] test me um

23:40

but so he gets sent off and i'm i'm

23:43

working on other stuff doing work trying

23:45

to keep an eye on the game but i was

23:47

like okay i was in between meetings i

23:49

finally caught the last like i said 20

23:51

25 minutes and i turn it on

23:53

spurs are down a man and they're sort of

23:55

battening down the hatches they're about

23:56

to make a triple substitution for some

23:58

reason devin sanchez gets subbed on and

24:01

he's got a bandage on his head he looks

24:02

like a [ __ ] mummy like okay that's a

24:04

thing

24:05

and then in the span of five minutes

24:09

two different vitesse players both get

24:12

two yellow cards so spurs go from

24:15

down a man to up a man it's ten versus

24:18

nine at that point

24:20

the one uh it was royale tried to chip

24:22

the keeper who was like out of his box

24:24

sorry yes

24:25

yes sorry it wasn't too straight on the

24:27

on the keeper so the the one of the

24:29

defenders gets two yellow cards within

24:31

five minutes just like romero and then

24:33

yeah so it's 10 on 10 and royale gets

24:35

put down the right and the keeper like

24:38

it was very weird

24:40

but he just comes into your frame you're

24:41

like what the [ __ ] are you doing here

24:43

and royale

24:45

did amane he did a money

24:47

he just chipped it right at him and it

24:49

hit him in the arm straight red you're

24:50

gone so the backup keeper is like what

24:52

the [ __ ] i gotta play now so

24:55

they go in

24:56

uh so how did you actually head save how

24:59

did you feel fundamentally about the

25:01

lineup the three at the back

25:03

well it felt like that

25:05

that was the team

25:07

that

25:07

kante will play

25:09

well you can go into the previews

25:11

against everton on sunday it'll be

25:13

something like that it'll be almost

25:15

identical um

25:16

i i think he's gonna look he's gonna

25:18

[ __ ] tire of dyer because dyer was no

25:21

it's the best he's got that's not even

25:22

the worst center back in that formation

25:24

it's bendy why isn't ro where's rodon

25:27

is he terrible no he's he just hasn't

25:29

earned the trust of anybody yet because

25:31

he's a kid and he hasn't heard ganga

25:33

give me rodon those guys can play well

25:37

the last time you saw tanganga he was

25:39

getting kind of riched around by zaha

25:41

yeah well zaha does that he did it to

25:42

[ __ ]

25:44

report but the problem is that these

25:45

guys don't have any historical data to

25:47

go back on and say no no like this is

25:49

what their form really looks like when

25:50

they're really solid and they're really

25:52

kicking on right so you don't have that

25:54

for rodon you don't have that for

25:55

tanganyika

25:57

which was nice to see i'm not advocating

25:59

against either of them i think they're

26:01

going to be quite good both of them but

26:03

neither of them is left footed

26:05

and

26:06

you go with what you

26:07

[Music]

26:09

i don't i don't necessarily even agree

26:10

with the reasoning but you go with what

26:11

you have and ben davies can play both

26:14

sides

26:16

uh i'm sorry both musicians in a back

26:18

five yeah i think

26:19

yeah he can be he can be back there

26:21

it'll be interesting to figure out what

26:24

kante does i do think it's still that

26:27

how does the ball

26:29

come from defense

26:31

into kanan sun that's still the link the

26:34

space it doesn't even have to be a

26:35

midfielder it could be down the wing how

26:37

does that get connected right so i think

26:40

clearly can make that move but is it too

26:43

obvious could you need options well

26:44

emerson can too right and so

26:47

the the thing is

26:49

uh royale sorry yeah um yeah emerson

26:51

well

26:52

i like the idea of the formation because

26:54

it's it's

26:56

it's a three four three they're not

26:57

[ __ ] around and and kante for as much

26:59

as he was pragmatic in some of his

27:01

chelsea years he's an attacking coach

27:03

and he's gonna play fun games they put

27:04

up three granted it was on vid tests but

27:06

put up three and a half an hour um

27:09

i just

27:11

i don't trust

27:12

two-thirds of that backline and the one

27:14

that i do is aggressive right romero so

27:18

um i don't know what the middle of the

27:20

park is going to look like as you said

27:21

because then that basically creates skip

27:23

and hoi beer

27:25

more or less

27:27

can't play both of them

27:29

well no no okay we're going to put a

27:31

dominate there he's a little bit more

27:32

attacking minded than what i'm saying i

27:34

think that the issue is you can't play

27:35

both of them because neither of them

27:36

will pass the ball forward now

27:39

hoiberg does it when he plays for

27:41

denmark but for some reason

27:43

he won't or doesn't carry the ball

27:46

when he plays for spurs

27:48

when i don't listen when i look at this

27:50

formation i go yeah you're gonna have

27:52

joy on the outside and you're gonna get

27:54

eaten alive in the middle of the park

27:56

and i don't have a good answer i don't

27:58

have a good alternative i suppose it

28:00

would be having kanan's son up top and

28:03

maybe in dominate in the eight where you

28:06

have a double pivot of skip and hoi bear

28:08

or winx or whoever it is and i'm not

28:09

saying those players specifically but

28:11

that formation that style right um and

28:14

i'm not saying that he that kante's uh

28:16

against that or or you know hasn't done

28:18

that in the past he just doesn't have

28:20

enough [ __ ] goal kante to to fall

28:22

back on nobody has angola conte he used

28:25

to um

28:26

so so that's kind of where i look at it

28:28

and i go yeah we're going to get

28:30

stampeded on sunday or whenever we're

28:32

playing everton yeah sunday everton is

28:34

in but everett is

28:36

a wounded animal

28:38

they are but you just ran this was an

28:40

emotional game right because this was

28:42

for whatever this trash bag uh lampshade

28:46

trophy is worth to anybody

28:48

it's worth something to spurs and they

28:49

went for it today and they need the

28:51

games they need the they need

28:53

kante needs as many games as he can get

28:55

to see what's going on

28:57

right sure it's a game for him to to

29:00

review

29:02

sun played 72 minutes

29:04

hoy bear played 87 not that he's much of

29:06

a problem with the energy or endurance

29:07

but uh kane played a full 90. emerson

29:10

region both played a full 90 and they

29:12

[ __ ] ran

29:13

a lot on the wings so i think this is

29:16

gonna go right back out there on sunday

29:18

yeah

29:19

i think this is a game that they do not

29:21

do well and it's not because

29:22

everything's that great it's because

29:24

spurs are to fall out you know run out

29:26

of gas sleep

29:27

well

29:28

but the thing the thing the thing is

29:30

everton don't want the ball so it's

29:32

gonna it was gonna be a hard game for

29:33

spurs anyway because it can't break

29:35

anybody down as it is

29:37

yeah i mean

29:39

i this is a game though in the

29:41

pochettino years that they'd have no

29:43

problem and they would just put four on

29:45

them

29:45

yeah they would well they would they

29:47

would they would press them they'd be

29:48

like you don't want the ball we're not

29:50

gonna let you even have the ball right

29:52

exactly are you gonna steal our passes

29:53

we'll just go get the ball back and that

29:56

will create the chances right since he

29:57

left and in the mourinho years and in

29:59

the nuno months

30:02

um

30:03

they've just gotten so far away from

30:04

that and the question i have is

30:07

you know does delhi draw in on sunday

30:09

because

30:10

i mean

30:11

i don't think he is i think that this is

30:13

i think that if you're like

30:15

the third manager he's gonna try and i

30:18

will never give up on him but no my

30:19

point is not so much about delhi it's

30:21

about the

30:22

somebody has to come in and play because

30:24

this you can't run don is going to play

30:26

90 right

30:28

lasalle god help us all he missed a

30:30

basically a full on breakaway from from

30:33

the 18 yard

30:34

line we hit the goalie in the face

30:38

um oh john john stones gave up an old

30:40

goal off his face it was fantastic uh

30:43

bergvine delhi um and and

30:47

uh i think you've gotta you've got to

30:49

trust context he's going to do something

30:51

weird he'll take bird vine and make him

30:54

a [ __ ] winger he'll do something

30:55

weird right he's really good he will

30:58

find a way uh and speaking of finding a

31:01

way forward hawaii the lads uh we may

31:06

have a manager in newcastle well let's

31:08

talk about who didn't say yes to them

31:11

first yeah well that was that was a [ __ ]

31:14

show we alluded to it in the opening and

31:16

if you got it then good on you but uh

31:18

unai emery of vil real and arsenal lore

31:22

um

31:23

was apparently in contention and

31:25

we're talking about the europa league

31:26

four-time europa league champion

31:30

three in a row to be fair i have not

31:32

followed this story that much it just

31:34

hasn't but between the conte stuff and

31:36

it just

31:37

it's actually curious to me why there's

31:40

not more news about who they're going

31:43

after when they're going after him so

31:44

i'm

31:46

and the thing is that you might have

31:48

more money than god

31:49

but you're still a relegation side right

31:51

now that money doesn't count for

31:52

anything right now and between now and

31:54

january 1st

31:56

europe [ __ ] shit's creek pal and you

31:58

can go down easily you may get some

32:01

players in that will save your season

32:03

but you're not going to get the super

32:05

big name i don't care how much money you

32:07

have you're not going to get the big

32:08

name players

32:10

to come in and change your squad sit

32:13

like seriously until the summer

32:15

and you're only going to get it then if

32:17

you stay up so

32:19

so that's kind of where if you look at

32:20

the coaching idea that's where they're

32:22

struggling so i think the thing that is

32:25

interesting about this is

32:28

people think

32:30

that what manchester city did

32:32

was just because of the money and it was

32:34

easy

32:35

and this is one of these moments where

32:36

it's like

32:38

yes city had the money

32:40

yes city did buy players and all this

32:43

stuff but they were methodical about

32:46

who they put in charge

32:48

which players they went after and how

32:50

they moved up the table

32:52

from a football

32:54

director standpoint they were very

32:56

strong the best people to move this team

32:59

now granted they were safely in the

33:01

premier league they had already been

33:03

okay

33:04

they were stabilized in the premier

33:06

league they did have a season in living

33:09

memory where they did not score a goal

33:10

at home through the second half of the

33:12

season amazing amazing work by stuart

33:14

pierce people went

33:16

20 games without seeing a goal

33:20

so what's happening with newcastle is

33:22

they've they don't have the structure in

33:24

place to even make these decisions so

33:27

the british press started leaking that

33:29

emery was

33:30

gonna come and it was a done deal and it

33:33

was not a done deal and emery was like

33:35

wait a minute you guys are acting like

33:37

no you gotta do it in the emery accent

33:40

i cannot do good evening i can't i don't

33:43

have it that's all you need you just

33:44

have to start every sentence with a good

33:45

evening good evening uh so emery sort of

33:49

doesn't like the way the approach

33:50

happens like this isn't cool i don't

33:52

like this

33:53

his family's like i don't want to move

33:55

to [ __ ] cold hell death i don't buy

33:57

the family thing he basically doesn't

33:59

like the approach he doesn't like the

34:00

setup he doesn't like any of it he'd

34:03

rather stay in villarreal where he's

34:04

doing well he's in this champions league

34:07

group and he's okay right 65 degrees 11

34:11

months of the [ __ ] year right right

34:12

and he has dan jooma who if you don't

34:15

know about the championship in danjuma

34:17

go look at danjuma play this is one of

34:20

these tricky african wingers or a french

34:23

descent who just like flies he's like a

34:25

amarez type you're like what the [ __ ]

34:27

how did he do that yeah so he's got that

34:29

little mojo but he played it at

34:31

bournemouth last year and they got him

34:32

and for 25 million it was a big deal

34:34

anyway he refuses them so now it's eddie

34:38

howe what a great bournemouth

34:40

segway good job love that

34:43

so eddie howe

34:44

has a couple of players who went from

34:46

bournemouth to newcastle so he'll know

34:49

wilson he'll know frasier who are two

34:51

players he knows but he was not exactly

34:54

a defensive coach right he did take

34:57

bournemouth

34:58

levels and levels and levels up took

35:00

them from the fourth division all the

35:02

way up saved them when they had gone

35:04

into bankruptcy had a 10 point deduction

35:06

and stayed up which is hard

35:10

so he has the thing but the thing that

35:13

scares me about how is when they were in

35:16

the premier league they had five seasons

35:18

in the league they bought lots of

35:19

players none of those players were good

35:22

he could not develop players it ended up

35:24

just being the core of the guys that he

35:25

came up with staying with him the whole

35:27

way and he sent them down yep so and

35:29

then they stayed together for five years

35:31

like i just think the the one that

35:32

really stands out is jordan ibe who at

35:35

one time at liverpool he and raheem

35:38

sterling were neck and neck and

35:40

bournemouth fans were like yeah we got

35:42

jordan ive you guys got freaking

35:43

sterling i'm like i don't know where

35:44

jordan ive is now but he ain't in the

35:46

premier league so that and that's on how

35:49

uh

35:50

so that part's tricky i don't know if

35:52

he's up for the fight he did not seem to

35:55

have a solution when bournemouth were

35:57

about to go down and ended up going down

35:59

i think they lost some games down the

36:01

stretch anyway but let's look at let's

36:02

go back

36:03

he's a good manager he's a likable guy i

36:06

love him i love those bournemouth teams

36:08

i always love rooting for him

36:09

as a neutral

36:11

and that's exactly it they're likeable

36:14

with those bournemouth teams when they

36:15

came up they were

36:17

not quite brentford they were um a

36:20

likable attacking team

36:23

right and that's really all we say that

36:25

we want so what we have here at in the

36:28

table

36:29

we have one less team who is playing

36:31

negative football and one more team who

36:34

is going to try and win the game which

36:36

is all we want when we're watching which

36:38

is what we want right like we want i

36:40

would rather the teams go down

36:43

trying to win games

36:45

yeah absolutely trying not to lose them

36:47

and look let's be clear by the way six

36:49

points

36:50

yeah they're already six points of drift

36:53

of of leads and and early days but

36:57

a bunch of draws really isn't going to

36:59

do much for you at this point so you

37:00

might as well talk about a lot of time

37:02

go try and get three points everyone

37:04

yeah it's like the three-pointers in

37:05

basketball why are you taking twos take

37:07

threes try and win

37:08

um so speaking of bournemouth though

37:10

they have set the record for

37:14

points at this point in the season in

37:15

the championship they're undefeated

37:17

under scott parker oh

37:19

and scott parker's

37:21

he's going to take them up and then he's

37:22

going to leave

37:24

yeah he wants that's for his job yeah

37:27

all right listen man

37:29

yeah yeah he already took the fulham job

37:30

here's my here's my prediction

37:32

he's going to take brighton after grand

37:34

potter leaves oh i like it i like it i

37:37

like it i like it i like grand potter's

37:38

going to leicester

37:40

i agree i think coaching carousel i'm

37:42

going to by the way

37:44

that's by the way that's a rumor that

37:45

city fans are freaking out about that

37:47

brendan rodgers could be the successor

37:48

to

37:49

to uh pep i do not want brandon rogers

37:52

no you don't he's not he doesn't have

37:54

enough gravitas the players will be like

37:55

shut the [ __ ] up get out of here with

37:56

your [ __ ]

37:58

he would be pochettino at psg

38:00

yeah yeah they would just oh but my team

38:03

is imminently more culturable than that

38:05

group um so we've got we've gone through

38:08

a bunch of stuff we talked about

38:09

newcastle how they hang in there um

38:12

we've got to look at some of our premier

38:14

league matchups for this week

38:16

um not a great week aside from the derby

38:19

we do have whitney though that's the

38:20

stinks and no that's good i'll just get

38:23

up and watch it and the gay will be over

38:24

i'll do some things i've got a rock and

38:27

38:28

38:30

38:33

full of traffic no for kids oh but you

38:36

38:38

kind of [ __ ] oh wow rock climbing videos

38:40

some drugs i've drowned in the ball pit

38:42

yeah

38:43

ball pit is petrifying by the way once

38:44

you're in there you really can't get out

38:46

it's just germs and

38:48

germs and [ __ ] it's like these happy

38:50

38:53

38:55

in there it's [ __ ] disgusting oh yeah

38:56

oh yeah no by my account we have um we

39:00

have

39:01

sperm i did say peter you did you did

39:03

you're gonna you're gonna upset tom

39:05

um

39:07

i'm getting good with the callbacks um

39:09

there's three good games that i see or

39:11

two and a half um and then there's some

39:14

interesting ones so we talked about

39:15

united and city that's obviously the

39:17

headline obviously the um the end of the

39:20

weekend card is a huge

39:23

top four six pointer with west ham

39:26

going to um uh anfield or is it a is the

39:30

other way around

39:31

oh it's like going to london yeah

39:32

they're going to london okay so yeah i

39:34

mean

39:35

that's

39:37

we were talking about our best bets did

39:38

you put that down um i did not i did not

39:41

touch that draw i mean i might talk

39:42

about it but i didn't put anymore yeah

39:44

yeah yeah it's like 320 for plus 320 for

39:46

for west ham to draw i feel like the

39:48

sunday games are more interesting right

39:51

leeds leicester should be fun

39:54

your team is a conte against benitez

39:57

we're gonna i mean the league is so

39:59

interesting it's so much good coaching

40:01

all the time i just saw another good one

40:03

i didn't really think about too much but

40:04

palace wolves promises to be

40:07

fun that's a little like

40:09

what's seventh right now they're good

40:11

right lars has been playing good stuff

40:14

then your your funny game of chelsea

40:16

burnley you're really not feeling

40:18

chelsea right now you think burnley can

40:21

can shut them down i think you're crazy

40:23

i think the children i'm not saying they

40:25

can well i guess that was um

40:30

it could be a nil nil

40:31

but they're not chelsea aren't giving up

40:33

a goal there's no way oh yeah no no sure

40:36

well i mean this kid from burnley is

40:38

quite good but um

40:40

if corny

40:42

i looked it and i said burnley was plus

40:45

like 11 50 or something like that i'm

40:47

not doing a laurent special as we said

40:50

maybe i will yeah maybe i'll just throw

40:52

that out there

40:53

you know what that one i'll wait for

40:55

because that'll go up yeah yeah

40:58

but listen

40:59

my point about chelsea burnley is that

41:00

chelsea are

41:02

they've been struggling right like they

41:04

they've been making

41:05

excuse me struggling from a personnel

41:07

perspective they were slow against

41:09

newcastle

41:10

they were gifted the game against

41:12

norwich and i like i said on last week's

41:14

show i was right but i was off by a week

41:16

in that they would start sluggish

41:17

against newcastle and then get get the

41:19

job done at the end

41:21

i went i went draw and then chelsea

41:23

whatever this time that encompasses

41:27

chelsea's prom are you ready go for it

41:29

this is all you have to know

41:30

they are plus 23 in goal difference

41:33

and plus six in expected goal difference

41:37

so

41:38

they are scoring goals but the

41:40

performance is not in line with what

41:43

you'd expect they're getting luck in

41:45

defense and luck in scoring now this

41:48

doesn't mean it doesn't it's not the

41:49

be-all and end-all but when you watch

41:52

the games you're always feeling like

41:54

chelsea dodged one there right well and

41:56

we keep talking about the the brentford

41:58

game too but um

42:00

yeah i just

42:01

i'm waiting for them to kind of get

42:04

unlucky right that's all i'm saying and

42:06

i think that

42:07

you know

42:08

burnley poses as big a test as anybody

42:10

went for a team that's you know they're

42:11

just not going to play now the game is

42:13

at the bridge and when i initially

42:15

thought when i was looking at the lines

42:17

i thought it was that turf more that

42:19

changes a lot so i may be walking

42:21

walking back this one but one of the

42:23

bets i put down or i was planning on

42:25

putting down was burnley double chance

42:27

win or draw plus 300. um i just don't

42:30

see

42:31

listen i don't see chelsea running away

42:33

with the league they don't run well

42:36

they will not run away with the league

42:37

no that's what i'm saying they're going

42:38

to be a contender they will not run away

42:40

with it nobody's going to run away with

42:41

it this year i don't think

42:43

um the team that could is liv well we no

42:46

because of [ __ ] icon right liverpool

42:48

has the underlying numbers to do it

42:51

city not without their horses for six

42:53

weeks no i know i know

42:55

city's problem is that striker thing is

42:57

real it matters

42:59

but what if foden is solving that

43:01

problem for you he

43:03

he needs to

43:05

solve it in more ways sure right that's

43:07

fine where is the game that he

43:11

where is the game where we're crossing

43:12

where we can't break anyone down and

43:14

we're crossing balls in

43:15

can he get on the end of crosses

43:18

right now he's not getting he's not a

43:20

guy who gets on the end of crosses where

43:22

there's a there's a volley to the back

43:24

post and he roofs it into the net he

43:26

doesn't have all those shots yet right

43:28

he's still he's he still has midfielder

43:31

skills he doesn't he doesn't like spend

43:32

all his time being like what kind of

43:34

shots do i need to make the way ronaldo

43:36

has clearly figured out every single

43:39

shot he needs to make at every point

43:41

from every angle from every angle and

43:43

you know what i as much as i love i'm a

43:46

messy guy

43:47

i do know

43:49

that there is no way that ronaldo

43:51

doesn't practice taking every single one

43:54

of those [ __ ] shots oh yeah

43:56

like every single shot

43:59

back foot side foot top corner this

44:02

angle that angle someone in a way he

44:05

practices all those finishes i think

44:08

that when we

44:09

think about the best players of all time

44:12

they're almost always the most talented

44:14

and the hardest working right i don't

44:17

think i would ever doubt chris jones

44:19

hard work even at 36 yeah he doesn't

44:21

press but

44:23

no but it's the preparation

44:25

yeah when there's a goal that's to be

44:26

had

44:27

he's on the move oh yeah

44:29

yeah

44:30

wow their xg is negative for united

44:33

that's crazy

44:35

expected sg is minus

44:38

yeah yeah basically

44:41

and ronaldo is saving their ass right

44:43

they've got five extra goals that they

44:45

shouldn't have and those are his five

44:47

goals basically so but all that's all

44:49

let's say i think

44:50

chelsea are without lukaku still they're

44:52

going to be without werner um not that i

44:55

think vermeer's all that great um but

44:57

can ziac really cement himself in in

45:00

this attacking band uh is pulisic going

45:02

to play because i saw that he was

45:03

cleared for the upcoming international

45:05

break i would not if i'm too cold i am

45:09

not playing him with burnley because the

45:11

second he runs into james

45:14

he just elbows him in the back of the

45:16

leg elbows him in the back leg knees him

45:18

in the back of the leg his hamstrings

45:20

going to go yep

45:21

so i would not [ __ ] with them enough of

45:23

enough of chelsea burnley uh saturday at

45:26

the same time brentford norwich

45:28

brentford really got taken to the

45:29

woodshed by burnley last week um but i'd

45:33

like them at home to bounce back against

45:35

a really bad norwich watch the

45:38

goalkeeper if if that's fair if raya is

45:41

not there for brentford

45:43

just be aware

45:44

that weird goals might go in and

45:46

brentford had a really good defense and

45:48

it was a unit but i noticed the

45:50

goalkeeper like i'm getting better at

45:52

watching football now ryan is out now

45:55

ryan is out for four months

45:57

whoa that's bad yeah

45:59

so

46:00

maybe they they'll coach him maybe

46:02

they'll pick up where the other i think

46:03

his name's fernandez

46:05

he needs to be on his line or at least

46:07

be more aware he gave up some goals that

46:09

you're just like is he supposed to be

46:11

there i feel like he's in the wrong

46:13

place look i'm not arguing that at all

46:15

yeah what i'm saying is

46:17

um

46:18

you're terrible bradford will not let

46:20

norwich find out if the goalkeeper is

46:22

good or not um

46:24

and

46:25

they are

46:26

they're negative money they're like

46:27

minus 160 something like that to win the

46:30

game money line um yeah so i'm doing

46:33

halftime full-time brentford brantford

46:35

i'm gonna they're gonna beat the [ __ ]

46:36

out of norwich it could be the game

46:38

where they put a five down yeah yeah

46:40

yeah uh i also flirted with the idea of

46:43

tony with a few shots on goal in

46:44

brantford to win that was about even

46:46

money i like this a little bit more

46:47

because it's plus

46:48

um

46:49

and then another redemption uh you know

46:52

i guess a revenge tour if you will for

46:54

me this week um i'm sticking with lester

46:56

uh i think that you know leads are

46:58

against leads

47:00

leads are shaky they're they're home

47:02

they're at allen road i get it but like

47:04

um

47:05

lester really are going to have

47:07

something to prove against

47:09

a bad defensive team

47:11

bad defensive team they played on

47:13

thursday you you almost yeah no that's

47:15

fair but you almost can't miss that many

47:18

chances like they did against [ __ ]

47:20

arsenal

47:21

twice in a row and their plus money

47:23

they're plus 150 money lines so i like

47:25

them a lot um those are my three what do

47:27

you have

47:28

i have the laurent love parlay that's

47:33

brentford

47:34

city aren't you touching boys

47:36

yeah are you are you are you betting on

47:38

young boys now betting on young boys

47:40

brentford

47:42

brighton

47:43

city to win in a parlay at plus 340.

47:47

uh they're all negative money line but

47:48

as a group

47:50

it's a good one and then uh i'm not

47:52

gonna put money on this

47:54

but united are plus 370 against city if

47:58

you have no skin in the game that is

48:00

about as good a bet

48:02

for a big six

48:04

matchup as you're gonna get trust the

48:06

city fan

48:07

city lose this game this is a serious

48:09

game can i ask you a question yeah you

48:12

just told me about a parlay with

48:14

manchester city moneyline in it and then

48:16

you told me not to bet on me bet against

48:18

manchester city i understand that i'm

48:21

betting for my team

48:23

i like i like them as the favorite

48:24

they're the favorite so what we're

48:25

hearing is don't

48:27

don't follow on laurence parley

48:31

all i'm saying is look at it it's a it's

48:34

an interesting i know that it

48:36

contradicts itself i understand that but

48:38

this is what gamblers do right yeah they

48:41

have a little bit of both going on right

48:43

if you don't want to mess with the

48:44

parlay because you're like you know what

48:46

i don't like those three together

48:49

and you don't have any love for city

48:52

plus 370 for united is tasty

48:55

i'm just not gonna take it

48:57

i kind of want to um

49:01

to put palace

49:02

in there

49:03

in the parlay yeah oh

49:06

what do you get for that well i the

49:08

thing is is that i won't be able to like

49:09

i'm for a game

49:11

palace to win in that parlay well yeah

49:13

but what i was going to say was it's got

49:15

to be really tough to find a book that

49:17

will give you double chance and a parlay

49:19

right because that's what i would bet on

49:21

i don't know no i know i know but what

49:23

i'm saying is i wouldn't bet on palace

49:24

moneyline and a parlay right like or as

49:27

part of a parliament i would say palace

49:29

win or draw against bulls yeah i could

49:31

see that at home

49:32

you can do you can do draw no bet for

49:35

that yeah but

49:36

yeah yeah yeah which is effectively yeah

49:40

remember yeah okay maybe alice

49:43

palace draw no bed is -135 which is not

49:45

a good bet

49:46

in a parlay it is

49:48

in a parlay it is yeah yeah

49:50

if you did brighton and brentford

49:52

moneyline with a

49:54

uh yeah if that's going to be way higher

49:56

than plus 340. that's going to be

49:57

positive that's 450 let's see what that

50:00

let's see what's going on calculations

50:02

there

50:03

i'm going to put city in it too because

50:04

that's was my original well no no take

50:07

city out just so i can see what the the

50:08

number would be oh okay

50:10

okay so

50:13

brighton and newcastle brentford

50:15

norwich

50:17

palace

50:19

you want

50:20

the three homes

50:21

brighton branford palace and you want

50:24

city out

50:25

yes so this is

50:26

palace palace draw no bet bradford

50:29

and brighton

50:31

brentford brighton money lines still 350

50:34

plus 350. really huh

50:36

oh because city city's only minus 135 to

50:39

win yeah oh okay never mind i thought

50:42

they would be higher

50:43

no well i'm interesting if cities plus

50:45

three if united or plus 370 at home city

50:48

can't be that much of a favorite

50:51

yeah it's gonna be close

50:53

yeah yeah it's gonna be close yeah let

50:54

me see let me see what it looks like

50:56

with with city in my parley

50:58

oh

50:59

then it's plus six

51:01

well yeah then you're a four leg it's a

51:03

four like that's a four-legged partly i

51:05

um so we don't talk much about hockey

51:08

we don't talk much about hockey or or

51:10

college football betting in on our show

51:13

and not that i'm going to dive too deep

51:15

into it but i have a saying uh i have a

51:17

nickname for myself uh when i do parlays

51:20

i call myself mikey243 because that will

51:23

be a parlay that brighton win

51:26

city win and brentford will lose or

51:28

something along those lines

51:30

i will go mikey is a good old-fashioned

51:32

mikey243 and i will walk away

51:34

with not even the shirt on my back so

51:37

um

51:38

so that's that's where

51:40

i do get carried away often

51:42

um with not so much like because

51:45

oh

51:46

the way that they built a city on [ __ ]

51:49

like this

51:50

out in nevada is that basically they go

51:53

oh

51:54

you did it right just they're saying oh

51:56

if i add another one then it's plus 700

51:59

like no it isn't dummy it's plus zero

52:01

because you're gonna [ __ ] lose

52:05

so

52:06

yeah

52:06

that's that's that's where you separate

52:08

the the

52:09

the men from the boys where you can go

52:11

all right you know what as i said your

52:12

eyes get too big because i straight bet

52:14

palace at home plus 150 is pretty nice

52:18

yeah yeah it is but

52:20

i just

52:22

and i might do i might do drawn on bet

52:24

for that we'll see what was the one that

52:26

i liked oh i liked uh i liked

52:29

west ham

52:30

liverpool draw plus 310

52:33

yeah no i could certainly see it

52:35

let's draw no bet for that one

52:37

that's going to be plus

52:40

probably about even money

52:42

plus 275 to west really plus you draw no

52:45

bet yep oh yeah yeah it's too late for

52:48

me to be doing math yeah that makes

52:50

sense

52:51

i'm putting that into my little box here

52:53

i'm going to take west ham draw no don't

52:56

put it in a parlay i'm not putting it in

52:58

a parley all right good i'm glad

53:01

i don't but

53:02

then i don't make any money it's boring

53:04
