ABOUT THIS EPISODE

New guest to the show, Angus Rowe, joins Hamish to discuss the last 3 matchdays in the Bundesliga including the recent title decider between Dortmund and Bayern.

Ois, I alright welcome back to the honoablepodcast. This is episode. Sixteen of the show today we are joined by Angusrow. Welcome, Hey! Okay! May It's good to bee you good to have you on, so I need to makea quick disclaimer. So this is actually the second episode I'm recording withyou. However, this will be the first one up on all the various podcastlistening platform, so this is technically your debut, even thoughyou've already done so there's an episode I think, comingout next Tuesday about the AFL season and during it- and I go on about howit's your debut so just a quick Toclaimer to anyone who'slistening to this and that yeah. This is actually his debuttechnically on the on the ball. PODCAST. So just forget about everything I sayits still. A price applies to broady- I guess but yeah yeah. So just forgetabout that. Today, we're going to be chatting bout,the Bundesleaguer, so it's the only sockely going on right now thatactually matters Thir's like the Korean League or whatever, but can't say I'mGOINGNA, watch, EAH and realistically there's just no muchsport. I can't think of any other sports that are on there's the UFC, butthat's not really yeah yeah. I don't think there's any other mainstreamsports going on. No, I can't, I can't recall any. I justremember Seying the adds to this absolutely everywhere, as if it wasjust the first one to turn so yeah. So yeah, it's been a bit of a savior. Tobe honest, I think I really realized how much partsport plays in my weekly routine, especially the weekends like I'll doYounil Week and then I'll get to the weekends and I'll be like well, I'mmeant to be watching sports, I'm not sure what to do, but the Bunders Leaguear coming back kind of help that out a bit. So today we'rejust going to go through the last three weeks of action. Pretty much I haven't talked about the bonersleague, a since, before the first matchback. We did a little bit of apredictions episode with rat, so I feel, like I had to address it so yeah. First Up, we've got also we'renot going to be we're, not buous league experts, so we're mainly going to betouching on the top four or top five teams today. So if you're a if you're a union billin Fan- and youwant tot- want to hear about your matches- unfortunately tis probablyisn't the place for you, but so we'll start off. It was the big opening game.The revier DB is dotmiver Shalker. Did you watch this? I did watch it yeah. How did you find it it? I thought I hadn't really watched much of the bunersleague before and yeah. I thought was a great watc tosee obviously Onder Kid Harland. I've never actually seen him life beforeI've, seen Ila Toms scoring Hadtricks, let's dabut and stuff, but never seen,Ham live and didn't realize how much of an actual threat he was on. The field obviously scored a Gorland, so did theother has Irland Goin Geri Kit to so it was a geash yeah. It was reallyattacking as well like even Shaufat. They didn't score any goals, but Iremember like the first twenty thirty minutes. They had like a lot of chancesand it was free like free flowing. I think both teams were a bit unfit andrusty, so yeah, there war chances the...

...whole time like yeah it as was reallyentertaining to watch. Obviously, the school lime was a bit one sided, but Ithink I think shack were a bit stiff in the end. There's a stuff, so I talkedabout these first few games on my brother's podcast actually so go checkit out the watcher podcast he's. Also. Let me his laptop for this episode, soI probably should shat him out so she's Lok Goa go listen to the watch. Erpodcast! If you haven't so there's a there's, a start calledexpected goals and it kind of ranks each shot in like how often that shotwill result in a goal. So it kind its purposes to kind of giveit indication as to who actually deserve to win. So if someone scores aflut goal from halfway, that's going to be really low in the expected goalstaff. So in this match, the expected goals were actually Dorman only had onepoint, four five expected goal, so it showed that they put away some reallylike half chances and just made Shocka pay for probably some chances that against aweaker attacking team they wouldn't put away. So I think Sharka will probably abit stiff in the for Nill schoolline Dorman. They wer body elit in thismatch. OALL of them, like hazard, Brown even to whod, was impressive. Thou arjust like Silky Towhodam reminds me a lot of flike, the next Guindowan Kado,yeat you's, just a silky little general in the midfield, a love wot play yeah. I've also got RITN here. There's acouple: Shack players who look decent Western mckenny who's like their CDM.He looked decent and a mean Harret. He as a fafor player. I know that he wasthe bodes league, a player of the month in like September. So I was excited tosee him. He was. He looked really dangerous when he got on the ball, butif a modest ly never much impact on the game in general, but it's one of thoseplayers where every time he gets it he's likely to draw a fowl or likether'll, be someone else open on somewhere else on the pitch, because hegets double teamed or something so he was dangerous. Have you go anything else on this match? No, I'm just looking t thi stat as well,so looking at Dorman, they only had onemore shot: Yeah in Shalka Yeah, so that definitelystrengthens Theo. You know the the stat for the DSERVE golfs, I remember. Obviously one of the oneswas know complete ariom Sherbet, the shelp keeper Ye, the first half yeahhe's just he just bowled it straight to her what I think it was Gar and GrerryYeah II field yeah, and I needed I ade that for my sports betmelty, I needed A. I needed two first half goals and he just given it to hemin the forty fifth and my celebration, worke up family but way yeah, I just and then there was therewas a Wackorli itwas. I think its Grarasecond actually Wasang outside the footshot H, yeah Ye. It was almost likethey playn motside track. Shl Can do work, everyone does they just grew outplayi. You know roght at the right time and it was just a wine ont keeper andjust sloit past son, but yeah. I, in that parnership of Guaro hazard and Hekemi is well running down theside, an yeah as well. I think they used the wideplayes. Well, obviously,they've got Harland in the center. I think that tackted worts really wellfron against et the mark. The vast majority of the bomes, like it saingsbut yeah. It's that look good, yeah, the Therere. Only seven goals scored behind by and forthe season so there by far and away the second best attacking team in the compthey're, like they've, scored like...

...twenty five more goals than the fourthmost. So it's pretty scary what they do when they have the ball and they're inlike full flow, but yeah, as you said, they've just got so many good youngplayers like Holan, was so impressive. Like from the highlights. I know we allknow the records and stuff because we see on facebook everytn more. The highlights you kind of most of hisgoals are kind of like six yards out and he's just tucking it away like. Ithought he was maybe just a bit of a cherry picker who was kind of justright place right time, but I watched him and even his stuff, like off theball like his runs, he's just linkup play, theye all really impressive andyeah. He was so fast. I Dodn't realize because he's really tall as well butlike so I assume- maybe you just be a bit like I'm coordinated, but there area couple counter attacks and he was rapid. I was like yeah, don't know howpeople meant to stop him, but yeah pretty much. All four of the goals werelike Thatthey, weren't half chances, but they were clinical finishes likeGerreros two goals. Even though one of them was the keeper error like he wasunquite an angle and put it bottom corner and then he is one that wasoutside of the boot like that. What didn't need to be hard, but he made ithard by doing that, yeah then has ord's goal. Once again, he probablydidn't need to make it hard, but you took it like first time and justroosted at bottom corner, so their goals but dorminall, four of them,so that was a clinical display and I actually had hope. Thet dotman couldhave chased down by and we'll touch on it later, but at the moment looks likeit their hopes that have been dashed, but yeah yeah. I had a lot of faith inthem after this performance. Next, it was at the same time Libe, segversFriberg, I catch the last thirty minutes of this. It was pretty close. It was one allit's just a standard batch really where you've got one team dominant passingthe ball had like seventy percent possession or something and then theother teams just parking. The bus THATI'VE GOT SOE. Note O your on thismatch that I wrote like after watching it. Tamovern Ir really disappointed meButon. It's bear to say he made up for that poor match lastweekend scoring Hattrick, but once again we'll touch on that later. MARSL Sabitza and Ada O lookman. Theyreally impressive off the bench to players that I'm fond of, like I know,lookmin from the Premier League and Sabitza had a great start to the season.So I don't know why they're on the bench, especially so Bitza, but thatwas very impressive, but it was also really disappointing from Lipsig like Friberg, you've got to be beatingfribag. If you want to chase down Dorman and buy it yeah teyand the'vevery their chances. There F really yeah chasing down one of the two. It's definitely going to be no hirdenfed for them, yeah after yeah not being able to be fribeg or again this morning, drawing to hedabillin yeah yeah they'vethee theyve drawed, tenmatches, which is the tired most in the whole league and they've hondred. Fifteen d drawn ten,where dorman of one seventeen and drawn six so their ability to put away teams.I really letting them down this game is kind of frustrating me,because the commentators were just sgetting around Lipesicg and saying,like all they deserve to be up. It's like. I don't care if you have seventypercent possession, if you're not good enough to make most of it and put goalson the board like I don't think you do- deserve, don't Yoseve to Beinfront nowe yeah, so the commentators will really piss me off. The expected goals. Thingdoes actually suggest. lifesick should have won easy. They had one point, ninetwo expected goals fribag and they had zero point three three, but Fribergwere actually closer to winning this...

...than live Zo because they had a Headoin the ninety second minute that was overturned by Var, so it was almosteven worse. It was almost even a more disastrousday for Libsi if they came away with no points, but they came away with hedrawer, which not great, especially considering they probably had at easierrun than adortment. So they were probably more favorite to chase down by andbefore we resume the league, but that's obviously changed now something that's I've watched I've watched lobsic a couple times and to me they remind me of I think Itweeted this the other day, but I think they remind me of like pet man city when, just as they hide pet,like they ere playing this great attractive football, theyhad reallygood young players, but they like and just don't have they're, not like acomplete package yet yeah and were where you can kind of see in twoyears they like surely they're, going to be unstoppable and, like man stidyeveryone kind of knew that I think they came forth and peps first yeap,everyone kind of just knew like next year they were going to be freakouslygood and I feel like this is something Lipe, sig kind of looking like they'regoing to do. But I tweeted this to like a Socke pundent on twitter and hereplies saying he grees in terms of like the style of play, but thedifferences Man City have like unlimited money, so trophies were kindof inevitable for them, whereas live Sig, this might actually be theirceiling and they might like be like struggle chasing down by an adorment insbecause of the finances but yeah who knows hopefully they've got a lot ofyoung players, so maybe they can flip a profit on a few and reinvest it yeah sonext next, so that was it for the Saturdaynight next game. I had notes on so we're only talking about the top five,as I mentioned earlier, but I had did you watch the lapstic friber at allor Oyo Aing Dolman Sharka. Now I didmanage to flick over and catch that? U overtund, headup but yeah. I think yeah. I Bot you S. it's just a inability to put away fo book because I watchd the heart after in yeah, but I got lookd thet had they had?No, I think was sixty one percent position, the whole game. They had youknow more than double the amount of pastes Friberman, but yeah. It was just not in attacking anofe style of play, especially with the list they've got. You know, Berner upfront and they've got a really solid team, yeah,definitely but yeah, just in there in if yo lev, to put them away ou bit likem bit like, like, I said in the Alt, I really likeit JST Bat, always Hav telay back to felt I really like the list, but it'sjust you know that inability o te ways finish it oftan finish highly in the e onthe Loer.That's that's sort of whou. I thought of an I when I saw the RESOLTANC or thestart yeah Liverpool. Actually we both live. Por Fans, Om Liverpool used tokind of do this. Yeah, like I remember where every time we'd play like a newcastle were never win like Yiu, would always be one ol. Something rememberthere was that matc, I think John Jo Shell be scored against us something, so maybe it's just something like greatteams have to go through to become good. So who knows? Maybe this is almost agood omend Folapsi, but it's definitely what's let them down. In terms of thetitle race there inability to put away sides ys quite surprising, yeah bcause,I'm so I think, there's you think they're such like an attacking teamwith the players they've got, but obviously they just don't have it. Theyjust don't have that thing at yeah. I guess exactly and you look at thePooplas. Well, it took it took that one...

...selling of Contino to really you know, Catapol em back into the topof the Premier League. They you know they use the funds to just rebuil theteam. They got CLOB, they got. You Know Sawa on a alreay had formetoit thet just completely just rebildle ICAL soand. Maybe that's what lives ing my nade onw se there's tonsof brims around there te leading to winfall, actually yeah or just out oflivesig. So maybe it's just a you know, h t that one transfer thatone opportunity to use a a lot of cash justto Ou know just fix up a few carris and the wonup, and at least that might justhelp them with their push to at e top of theazea yeah. I definitely think thenext couple transfer windows is going to define life sick as a club, becausethis is where kind of like lesster city, almost like Afyeah. They establishedthemselves as like the seventh best team by well Thi Shit better than that,but after they had that great year, theywere really smart in terms of like not hanging on to their players. They flipthem for good sums, like obviously Cante Wen forheavs. They even go rid of like drink water for quite a bit. I definitely think the next couple transfer markets willtransfer windows will define what livesig becomes a club because they seem to be very good at scoutinglike the next big things, but it's a different story: whether they can flipthem for heaps of profit and then replaceent a lot cheaper and then theycan like, as you ere saying, with the Contina like they can reinvest in everyarea of the pitch and just overall get better, because I think there's rumors,that, like Upamacano, could go for like almost up to like seventy meal and thenten, I don't think he's going to go for much, because I think he has a reallylow release cause of something like thirty mial, but that's still, okay, asubstantial thing. So if you sell those two who have been heavily roomoned forages, then you got a hundred mill and most of Libes excitings are lessthanten bills. So you can sprinkle that, like a hundred bill around th the park, all of a sudden, you can take the nextstep and challenge by, and so I definitely think the the next fewtransfer windows can go. One of two ways for Life Sik: They can either likeget greedya almost and et's. Try and hang on to all their players, which Ithink will see them just become a midtable team eventually or they can besmart with like the sales and stuff and try and make build enough revenue to challenge by an endorman just as you're mentioning LivingpooldoN'tto make it all about leverpoal. But do you want living polk to signVena as a Livl Fan? You know as loopfan. This is your dramelevenentwe got the moment, obviously front free of Saday. If sorry I', Mana,Formeno and Sola you just you know you don't you've got all your players onyour on your board. You now you want to you're happy to move around the magnesBuf you don't to take any off. You want to keep the structure. Youwant to keep everything so Ydin Gan how it fits if I'm honest,yeah and I'm hearing romors about Damatraoreas well being on the ENTAGO.I just thinking you know if it Ain', both don't fix it. Why are we I mean? Obviously, you want to make abig presence in the transer market, lit fo, vois being a big presents of thetransfon market and whane t was certain Dominante, but I don't know I just I mean what what we've or record thisuse has been beyond belief. I think if you can afford to keep it the way it is, Idon't see why you don't obviously Hav...

...ther isn't so the incredible play he asoften Hittin me as o times, and I just I don't know how we go in the PremierLeague to beonest yeah I'd. Rather, we sign haberts to be honest. Yeah I thinkHaveit is address a bit more of a need yeah just because, as you said, wedon't really need anything particular because, like for Meno plays up top andhalf the time, Salad s places a center forrd anyway. So I don't think we needstrictly ASSENTA forwd like Verna, not that his great playin could probablyplay on wings and stuff, but I think haverts, it's a lot more versatile, aquicker plame as an attacking migfielder. If we needed, he also would out a bit of Heigt, whichsometimes we do like given like Mane Sala, an Fermino or pretty small yeah,and also he's so young he's only twenty. It would be hard to like make a loss on him kind ofyeah. So, even if you get him for two years, he doesn't do much. She's kindis a bench player can't really see how you wouldn't sell them on for like whatyou paid for him. So yeah there's no real going wrong with habirts, if I'mhonest, but I can't say, I'd complain with Ven,either yeah exactly but yeah, as you were saying. If it'snot broke like, don't really need know why I need to fix it next match. We've got Manchin gladbackversus Frankfots, so this is an absolute flogging. I watch the hearts of this. I didn'twatch it live, but MOGIN gladback, Bok, jus dominant. They scored two goals inthe first six minutes. The only time the game is actually interesting waslike the last half hour, frankfor kind of came back into it, but yeah frank, monthin gladback were jus,really impressive. Alisam player who's like their striker in quite a fewmatches. Actually hes really impressed me, so I definitely think he could beone whose transferr market value saws after this, like period of basically the headlights now that there's no leages on and stuffever UN's kind of watching the budhes lege. So I definitely think he couldmaybe go somewhere, but I don't know what's actually going to happen withthe transferm market, because there's going to be like genuinely a coupleweeks between season, so I feel like there might be a lot less transversethan normal, like teams might just try and stick with what they've got yeah itmuch sen you carts ar buying out the whole O comp. Yeah Thay'll be interesting. What goeson there? Yeah Frankfort, I do not know- what'shappened there they've there in fourteen thereare, only twopoints from the drop zone they've lost tune drawn to since resumption, butlast year I don't know if you remember they had Luka Yovich Ante rabbish,sebashian Heller and they told all three for about a combine like ahundred and twenty meal, or something and they've,obviously just not made smart decisions with that money, because they're Orl agenuine chance of being relegated. So I don't know: What's going on there, yeah yeah the case that there isthey're leating golf scores: There is ther center back. Is it Interago yeahafter that gay, where it's colled to gets fine, which obviously in come yeahan he scole, O Gol came as well so, and I so essentially sqored a HadtrickYeahyeah hself yeah. I think costage has been a good play for this year, butyeah s like the Athey one yeah par from that Alde, Silas Beeng. Okay, for mescored ING that game against my Chicabuk, but you know bad star. StupFront, isn't ithitatiiting yeah. I know...

...why you'd sign someone from thePortuguese League who's, like thirty yeah, is bizarre, very bizarre signing for them yeah. So that's vretty, Mun al I've got onthat match, so next we had by and up against Union Berlin. I think I watched the hearts of this,but it was quite a few weeks ago. I don't remember too much of it. It wasto Nel to buy and did you watch this game? I watched a little bit. I didn't seethe second guy. I saw the first obviously lean aski bit yeah. It wasjust you know. It was just a typical badformit's, just essentially den what lives ye can't do, put away the? U M,yeah way the are bad teams. Thati shoulde could have been three WSsaid out of Thei arbals. It was ruled offside, an early on, but that wasapprently put thim up half time and just from there I mean I don't enuunion really looks like they're going to come back in it, but yeah it was just. It was justshowing what they good at buying they'll winvery comfortable. It doesn't have to be a smashing like Dorman, sometimes doingthe bad teams. You know not. Fourfit Mel can just be a very casual to an Helwin and they'll dominate possession. They. I think they had sixty fourpercent possession that game you know more than doubleunions passes so yeah. It was just a very comfortalewin from them. I theyk yeahiwas just doing exactly what livesin can't do and just probably shows gives them. Sime am for live se as towhat you should be doing as t e top of the table Tan in this Ligo Yeah Bun, like they're Abtaly, interestingto watch because they got such good players but they're. So clinical, it'salmost boring at times, Lik yeah in a game like this. I don't know. Ifthere's another team in world football, where I actually have absolutely nodoubt they would win like all be other. I guess pestry probably would win easycaps. An Hei Leagu like this, be even like Bass and real there's, always small chance that a small Spanish teamwill upset them, but by and they just never really seeme to miss a beat likeeejust such a complete team. One thing that I have just generally noticed, Ithink, I'm going to touch on a bit later, but I think byng having a set unit for along time as definitely helped out and especially in this time, where they'vekind of come back with not much training under the belt. I think thefact that they've most of their teams played with each other for four fiveyears, really helps compared to like a dormanor libeset which have a lot ofnew parts to their team yeah, because you got like Alfonzo, Davies and stuffas I you knew players, but Levandaskin Mia, Alaba, Boltank, Noyar, evenkimmick. Nowadays, like they've been there for ages, so each year they just roll on get getanother win. It's too easy. So next match we had vertebram inversus Levecousan. I actually didn't catch this one either Lebecousan one four one and Verda is inthe relegation zone. So seems like a pretty standand match. If I'm honest, Ithink habet scored a few Olts, I'm just geting yeah e pot to first hinbolldoing three minutes, O each other sor five minutes of each other yeah yeah. He just showed exactly. Why iswile the GOIN OT become all the world best yeah, just Carri them really yeah Musa Dabihad to assist Demmi by who really impressed me theother night. When I watched Lovecusan, he had an assistant, a goal and bellobvious set up his Gial Bell Arabian Demibi, look the exact sang...

Theye, the same skin tone they'rewearing like both fluro boots, similar haircuts both have facial hair andtheir first names are, like one letter part, so not sure. What's going onthere, that's also the same for two bin Pays Benda and Benda. They both look exactly the same. What do you means? Anan Laws? Bendo-HMM, Oh yeah, they're twins, though so that makes fot or es that does' make ame more sense, but I remember just always saying: on Fatrit by wineandtwin: Don't have to look the same so yeah they are frequoutly. SIMILARAND! I'll,be honest. I don't know the difference. I think laves isn't right back and sparan the back slashon emid, but cannot yeah so easy wim for Levecoosin. Theygot on a bit of a role but we'll touchon that later, but that' stuntedthis morning. They they sit in fifth, so they're kindof in a battle with Monchan glabback. For Fourth, I don't think they 'llcatch. He life sick, but never know it's pretty tight up there. Next we had watching clubback versusLevicusan, so I watched this match. It was at the same time as Dorman Fulberg,so I don't know which one you watched I watch dormand yeah yeah, so I'll chatabout my match. Then you can champ out your match so watching clodback, verstlevercoosin. It was actually really entertaining match. If I'm honest, love, Acousin came out on top three one:habets scored two goals, including a penalty, but for me, haberts probablygot the headlines, given the fact that he had scored two in the last game andthen two in this one and he's only like twenty or whatever, but Demmi by andAaran Guez were more impressive to me, like haverdsdidn't, really actuallyhave much impact on the match. Apart from when he scored where DAMMI BA waslike setting up everything, he probably could have had a hattre, because therewas like someone tried to do a sweaty goal, and he like me, he like hit overthe crossbar and other one where Hou like was like a yard out, and he just kickedit straight into the Keypar as opposed to Ju slodding. It sideways, which wasa bit weird but yeah in the first half the gamechanged in the second Haff, but first half Levecouson could have had five orsix to be honest, like they were so dominant. I wasactually shocked because I thought Monthin gladback with a better team and this but, as I said, the second halfcompletely changed. MONTHIN gladback really came out of thesheds firing I'm trying to find the expected goalsfor this one. It had levecoosing scoring three point: Four: Seven andMonchin Globback Croring, two point two seven so ththey're suggesting thisshould have been like six goals it it. So that's shows how tacking it was Manchaglowback to go with bloody good, though Alson player Di Jist, like chipthroughboard to Marcus Tram, and he just vollowed at home, and it was justrapid and there was this hective bid play so thatgoal happened and then in like the next two minutes. There were two penaltyshouts at opposite ends. The field and levecoosins was given, which resultandhabirts putting it away and then so that made it to one yeah to one and then Levecuson's thirdcame from a great benda header, not even sure which one I was. I think it was fan, but was a reallygood, hiader and Levecuson leat frog to Montan glabback,but that changed this morning. So, yes, this game is kind of been maderedundant, so that's really good to see, but that was really interesting matchtwo teams, the top five going out it...

...and it lived up to the hipe. As wementioned, think we talked about this offfar afterthey felt podcast, but it's been so high score. Like generally, I thinkI've watched three or four matches with four goals in it or more, like there's not been too many boringmatches like I've seen some people saying on twitter that there's beenhips of blowouts and it's been boring to watch and tha to be fair. Thar hasbeen quite a lot of one sided school lines, but I don't think I've watchedany matches where, like one team, hasn't, had any any chances ind theother teams just had like twenty yeah. I wouldn't say it's been boring it allto be honest, but yeah. How is Dorman fullspoke well unfortunate, have tocontrut you. This was the one match that there was just really no chancesfor Walksberg. Well, like there was, but they justthey same good. They only had the one shot a target, but it was a was bit of an average game. Biva born GameDorman obviously came way to n allthe. Winters grary go on the thirty secondand he came ad finished it in the seeny EIHT, but yeah this, the the presence of allspurgs attack justdidn't really Sen. There they'v got their Corse and Gincheck, who I justlook like absolute monster: Stable E, all MEAP. Isn't he yeah he's nearly twomad? I think Het's called eight heades last season or something yeah. It wasvery clear what or tactic was they played out whil I tried to get. Youknow tried to cross it in Theyeah, the doffensive dorms ist toostrong, and they didn't play a very attacking style. Dormand like that, the performs again Shalkawas a lot more exciting. I O o good to watch this. One dominonly only had six shots of a match, four of themwereoff target to the two on Tigo, the two girls. You Know Harland didn't have an impact.This came which he can probably expect from. You know sill teenager yeah, butyeah they just they dod. The Job Dormand, obviously they tend to run thesame lineup every game, but yeah it wasn't overall Ike signingmatch. It was like Hay way, feeling ou know bit fit dishote after saying that, for because theydidn't really liven. Look a that good dormant. It's not like they just sqoredtwo shap shop play with composure and just making surethat Te idn't have any chances they are. They did look at it scrapeur times,even in playing that place style, and that was the match I tein before theycame up against, bind yeah yeah. So it was this game and bime andthen the two marchups Ka and n. The matchpf of those two came a couple dayslater, and I remember just coming away from those too much us to seeing I godBynda, going to kill them yeah, which, while they bate them, they didn't killthem, but yeah, it's just it wasn't a. It was probably all the Games. I'vewatched to say is, and that's probably the one I'd be happy to not Rey much but yeah Ta Sord, my Oan take fom yeah.So next we had as she just ventoned bine played their second match afterthe resumption and they be untracked Frankfort, five, two so frank for it. They don't mind conceding,but they also dont m yeah. You Watch thisone. I did watch this one o watchit straight after yeah. I just look like fine we're justgoing to dominate O a think you. There was three in a lot early in the thirdand then obviously Gen to e is just just you know you could have lookedaway for one second come back and you see that all of a sudden, it's thretoin three minutes scored. I thinks two EADIS into Rega,...

...but yeah, but I just did the usualthing. Obviously, with the same line up an Simila Tarkman, always roll the sameformula, but then yeah Davi made atfor to inInterrego sort of squate Hatrick, with scoring an own Gol later to conceal thegame to vine. But Yeah I was Ikeit was a good game. It was a lot more excitingthan the previous one dormans was in, and it just made me think it'sWy going to have the upperhand against Oman from the GIG Gard when they matchup against them. Yeah. I can, I completely forgot aboutIvan parisitch. He came off the bench against Dolmanand I was like wait. What yeah it took me a couple like times for thecommentators to say Parisich- and I was like Oh wait- that guy I just come e tobuyit yeah Ye. He hasn't at that grade to the host and the Games O sa em he'sbeen. Probably they way for link on the pitch man he's been the you know. Oneof the couple tha have been rotated in and out for Sergeon Abrian, a couple of others. Yeah he's became abit of a meth for a while yeah ASIS. Probably what was you playing on theORLHAND Inter playing into yeah? Probably- and it was like a baser sonot ture, thos e moth, but probably Inter our big club, but I feel, likeeveryone wants to experience like a dominant team at some yeahg soccercareer, but yeah, I'm pretty proud of myself here because Sebastian road. He got this assess for both interegersgoals and in the match. Frankforts match against Monthon glabback o thematc. Before this I said they were all shit except for road, and I predicted that Rodan Kintragrond, myboys Eah, I'm proud of myself, so that waspretty much that o that match. Then we rolled into Sundays fixtures, Ibelieve, which was, I think, shaukaplayed yeah and then, but wedon't need to talk about that, though shit out from Shalka I'll, be life SIC versus mine. So Iwatche this. This was an absolute lie, so clinny like it was probably the mosta pop livfol win or anything this probably the most enjoyable footballmatch. O'f Washin ages like it was just so clinical s, everything you thinklibe six should be th. They just you thought after the FRIBIRD game, they'dmaybe get another scrappy drawer, a win but yeah they just came out and pumpethem five neal. It was just good to see they're so fluid like they don't have aset formation, there's just blokes running everywhere or balls goineeverywhere, they'e, just pinging one touch passes that yeah Venus Cot, a Hattrit. He wasso clinical put away. All these chances, pullson's been really impressive inthis little period and he's kind of like I have here, is like a Jecon, Bulahybrid because he's like a Mula in the fact that, even though he's a centerFord he's not really the guy is going to score the most goals in the team,like he's more likely to set it up for Vernar or set it up for subbitsorsomeone else, and he did that here. That was a really. He basically set up a sweaty girl. Basically, therewas one where he could easily shot and then he just passed it sideways and setup a fair, easy shop for Sapitza and an Jako because he's a lot bigger thanmoler and he's like a more aerial, more of enareal presence, because you can isquite good in the air yeah pretty much. Everyone impressed me Orban and U Pamicano made comebacks inthe center of Defense, which is important for Lipesi they'vet got somuch depth like every player that was coming off the bench. It was like.Jesus he's, good he's, good he's, good yeah it genuinely could have beensixdeeal at half time in in Kunku could...

...have had a Hartrick there's quite a few sities, so it couldhave been. I think Libesi beat mint, aigte nil, the first time they payedeach other, so they could have legit replicated that SCOL. It could eas been like six neal at halftime and yeah just quickly on mind. So, even though we're mainly focusing onthe good teams but mins, they were actually okay going forward eventhoughs. Five nil, like I think, minser's issue, is they're kind of being a bit stubbornand they're just playing like thei older guys where the blokes, the youngkids, who came off the bench they just seem to be way better at football. Tobe honest, there's this Liverpool Lony! I don't know his first dame, but hislast name is a one year. I think his no o yeah yeah and he scored a goal inMins's, first match and obviously didn't Scot here, because Mysen school,but he looked the most thratening mines player on the park when he came on likehe had two or three shots. So I definitely think the mines coach needsto strap on some balls and get he young PLAC on the team. Abecause they're notreally playing for much all. I know theyre actually fricking in therelegation bout also, but still they're better than the old dudes. So get itget him in the side. Mat Did you cave any of this matchor or not? Really? No,I didn't I'm just looking now. Look like a domination, ten shots andtargets, foot Lipti, but it was so good to watchyeah. It just looks like into standard lives again. You know one week the behitand MISSD with the boom tame the other week, they'll fog them five meal, don't know what's going up with LibeSig, so this leaves us actually, let's touch onthis mornings game before we touch on the big one. So this morning three of the top fiveplayed, so we had verd brain- and I haven't watched any of the highlightsfor this, but we've got verda versus watchinggladback Neilor draw nothing really to touch on there and then levercousin versus Wolfsburgand Valle Pok beating them for one which is an absolute upset. I have tosay yeah. I don't really know where this came from al. These matches wereactually these two E. actually yesterday morning the next match I'mtouching on wis this morning, yeah. So I don't know what, when wrong, withlevecoosin there, they looked really good against Montan gladback Walsberglooked average at best like there was a really big gap between fifth and sixforming and it looked like. No one actually really wanted to come sicth tobe honest because, like shout in they all kept losing. So that's a big upset.I don't know who's called a fullspug skulls, but I saw Congratsi Scod I sawhis head. I went to bed half time. I scol. I saw his header in the fortythird I'm from a set pace, but yeahman they corsed in school that hurts o Maximilian Arnold. He got a go and toassist so he looks like the standout so get around him yeah that great man actually know him fromffo for honest, so yeah I did't watch those matches. SoI don't really have too much to say if I'm honest but thi morning, Arbelivesick versus her to Birl in and on face value. This looks shocking, so itwas a toll. Draw Livesig, albut entered their little hope of chasing by and down buthurt they've. Actually, if you just look at the table since resumptionthey're, actually in second they've, had two wins in a draw, so they're like above Dormans, they'reabove Libe, sick they're, even above levercoosand, so Theye, actually,probably one of the informed teams of the COM last year. I think going toChristmas. They were like second or...

...something, and then I don't know whathappened, but they just collapsed and then they've had a few coaching changes. They got a new coach in during lockdownand they've obviously come out looking like the mold cells. So they are sevenpoints behind sixth position, but I wouldn't write them off shooting up tosixth, because to or performance against live seg, that's veryimpressive and he unexpected goals. I haven'twatched the hearlt, so maybe there was a couple lipes ex scramers, but it wasone point: Five, seven goals to herter and only zero point. Six one to Lipsicgso seems like Libsic, were kind of luckyto even escape with a drawl yeah yeah soyeah to you, Wat t the highlights of this orno it was o yeah. No, I didn't. I was GOINNA J S. Lookig at the ELS MyiGretun choin se from IFOL. So so it's good to see himget a bit play Tom Andscore for them up, Beontec, God he's kind, absolutelymissing! Oh yeah, he was the OTER opy. Last year Polish yeah, I can't rememberwho was he playing for before AC Milan? He played for someone and it was an asmall Italian team and then he got a Genola and th n. He was scoring heapsof Golf. Aam picked him up and he got off to a hot star. I think Hi's Gote,two on debut or something and he just fell for cliff and now is it hurt us soo seeing you mother score. Sheetet was a penalty though so you'll take it. Yeah Halstenberg got sent off in the sixty.Third, I'm not sure what for, but that probably didn't help live six chances. Halstenberg is a ranger, so he's a fireman all right. So, let's move on to themain event: Dorman vessis Buyand, you watch this game live. Did you? Ididn't watch the SCANWIVE YEAHR theraplay. So what were your thoughtson this? My thoughts about five minutes in I thought boywere in Froue show here it was so quick. It was just a lot better than the. Ithink the the two games at Al like the two RESPECTEV Games, EAC, teen playleaning up to it, there's a lot better nose to fine Hadam. You know they're reallypushing a doorman hav on the backfoot. I Ay. So do they dominant t eallysomething what helped they played. You know high highpressure and you know they really push up thefield and really force tsomeone to the backfood but yeah. Those first five tenfifteenminutes was just really high pace. Few shots. I remember: Don't one of Dolmas chancesthis, I think it's the tric curden ten minutes in I don't know if you saw it was Harland.Hi was about. It was at the edge of the corner. F, the box noise. You know,rushed out hit, it forard he's Haid to come back,Hollanskso Kep through his legs, and then it was just sa by bolleting online yeah that was shot shot from Horland. If Mi was, I don't know why hehade. There was someone o a o yeah. He could have hit that on the right.Try to hit I new post but yeah easy said in obviously but lawe Yeayeahto say yeah. He. It was a lot better than Berki and I think that was likepretty clear difference between the two teams. I thought Noy a lost it a bit,if I'm honest, but obviously shill Oll go the best. Yeah may twenty seens inwhen he just steams out in slod tackles Holl yeah, my God, that's just classicnoial yeah. What what you think of the goal?...

Yeah it was actually on said, is few times I needed that forMamalti a need at least the togh goal. So kimmig was my boyder lovely clinicalship of Berki. I justcall my God. Oh good he's he's such a good player, kimage yeah, veryunderrade, I'm so happy end him in now, thes ot stuf, oh yeah, yeah too goodfor right back. If I'm onest yeah I anhe's go be a future tapton yeah. Theywere saying it was Berkey's fault, but if I'm honest, no one, no one isshooting from there yeah into to the yeanship shots Ike there in thatposition or yeah exacty, and he didn't even like a lookaut. So it didn't evenlook like he was Impressir, though just made it look so easy. I just Oul.I just was ssisting and I could never know. I could never do that. Never justfinish it to that. You know I could not execute it that well, O soPasar. It was just exactly had to e executed perfectly a wouly that was theonly guyl hat scoffing atch, so neada turned out to be the winner yeah. I don't know if you remember this,because I watched the mini match so just like a condensed ratplay,basically, but boating blacingly handblled. I saw this hold so bowtankss wi and fell on the box. Yeah and Harlan stupidly took it on his left.You should have tak any legit with a score, but he jo in only left and heshot it probably like, wasn't going to beat Noyer but Bo, saying, there'sabsolutely no argument to be had here. He hits him me high in the art, butit's below shoulde cot a handball. He latantly moves towards the ball, it'son tag for me, it's a red card and a penalty, and this completely changesthe match because then Dorman tied up one all and by and have ten players. SoI think byne definitely got away with something there and the commentators. Idon't know if it's different live, but they hardly even blinked like no. Theywere just like. Oh that's, interesting, yeah, thatjus moved on. Have you likehaving considered that that has completely changed the match like itwill usay entire league? If you think about it as yeah I'll be honest, it'sseason over now, they're not catch. I think there's six matches left and theyhave a seven point lead so they're not catching them. No- and I don't think byenough to play- or I actually don't know if they have to play anyone decent,but I know Dortman have to play Lipsig in the second last round. So basically no hope, if I'm honest S, hat yeah, the only interesting matchto come is pro like race is probably for fourth, because that's ampionsleague spot, so levicusand Livesigan, Monhin, Glat,backer ind, a bit of a fight for that one. Our bone have manhon glaback andLevacusan, but in the current FORMI, don't know if they will even bechallenged by them. To be honest, yeah Y Sooman just seem to do this everyyear like bi and have beaten them in the lastther've, been them six times in the last seven, and except for this one inthe league and except for this one, every single one was by a margin ofthree or more so I don't know what it is. I think Dorman panic when they gobehind, because in every other match they justbasically go ahead early and then theyr chilling we're here. They just seem tobe panicking as soon as CIMMEC scorle. That goal like I know the season was on the line, butin the last thirty minutes, like lots of the Dorman players are gettingfrustrated with each other. Like I know, Sancho came off the bench and he waslike yelling at a couple players a few...

...times when they made mistakes, and I just think Dorman. They need to belike almost arrogant to win like against Shaucod. They weregenuinely cocky like you could just feel like. Even in the goalcelebrations like you just felt like they thought they were top shit and itfeels like they don't bring this to the bying matches like buy and just seem tontimidate them a bit and back to my point about, like buyind, have us have had basically howto set core in their team for five years or so, whereas Libsig and Dorman,especially after this lack of training for like a month or two Dorman's, wholeteam they're basically have come in the last like two years, because you gotlike Chan, Vitzel Brown, Hasa, even Holland, Sancho's only been playing fortwo or three years at Dorman, like hmm they're, all relatively, like new with each other. So I think when the going gets tough and likeespecially in this situation, where there hasn't been as much training aslate, I think chemiry helps a lot and buy and have that over lives e endorman, who unfortunately cannot hold on to their best players. So they haveto keep like reinventing kind of their team. Yeah Yeah, I don't know what itis. They're just a few theories I have, butbine have definitely got something over dormant and Dorman need to fix it. If they'reever going to win another title, it's been like seven years. I think sincebine didn't win yeah, I thought this could have been the year this year. Ithought was going to be really exciting, like I thought so I thought we weregoing to have liver por, winning the Prem, Dortman or Lipesegwinning, thebudes league, and maybe into winning the Syria or Lasio and Iwasit was goingto be one of the more exciting years. But it looks like buynes going to winyou ventis. Well, we don't know, what's going to happen in that league, but yah yeah, I 's just it's just frustratingreally because just want to see a new team win forchange, yeah yeah, it's just a continual onsort of on caus yea. They just pick. They just seem to pick Dorman andlipsigs best players or and every other team in the league. Basically, and theycan't stop this from happening but yeah. What were you going to say? Oh yeah, I, as yeah it', just a it's just the the came stribut. I thinkthat's really just what always gives him the edge like you said when that Dorman went the wone doown. You know the hadCentra coming off and obviously showing his frustration. It just turns in itjust turns out for them now Ben Leven players on the pitch.There's. No, it's not like a you know, a team ofeleven. It is mot. It is obviously, but I think, buying you can physically see their just connection between theirplayers. You know we've all watched them. You know countless amount oftimes play together and exactly how they score. Obviously, Dormans ter Faili you lineup. Obviously Gointo get them a lot of winds, but just you know coming F. If the are opportunities a dormin facewhen they go down in the score on the schooleboard, itdoes expose a bit of a waitness in them, obviously not having that complete fullchemistry that by could show. I think that does become a bit evident,endorman's playing style, especially with the heavirelince onHarland Upfront. When you come up against a tough team and you you startto you, start to concide a few goals...

...and your alliance on you know, and anineteen year old kid against the top team. One on top tans in the worldisn't going to win you Mato Games. When it comes down to it. Sorry YeahAsit'll, take you it a time dormans. Well, hopefully it doesn't,but arcinyoll still take a bit of time until I can really be the top tame in Germany andhopefully push byne yeah. I'm just looking at the expected goals.Buying only had zero point, seven seven expector goals, whereas Dorman had zeropoint. Six two so definitely does suggest it was very close, sopotentially dorminar closing the gap on Bine, butthe seems always happen with Dorman, and then they have period where a lot of their players getsigned by the clubs and then they've got a restart. So hopefully they cankind of hang on to this crew for a bit. I know Howland can't leave till next,so like the middle of two thousand and twenty one, so he has to play the nextseason. It's in his contract definitely think theyw'ill help. However, don'tknow if the saing could be said Forcentho. Hopefully he stays, andmaybe just thinks like another year with Holland and the rest of the boyswill be good fun. Es Man, you bound yeah, definitely hundred e, don't think he can turn back and moveback home for probably more money, and, if I'm honest, I don't even know ifDolmon should reject it, because some of the fees that have been throwingaround kind of seem to be irresistible. Soit's probably not even the worst move to be honest for Dorman to reject itbecause you never know Sancho could like Touchwood, but Sanchocould come out next season, Terry's, AC or first match and then is market valuehalves. So You'r not sure. If you want to pass up that opportunity, especiallyManou, you can always kind of make them pay like twenty meal over Becauseman,if united, so yeah yeah. I definitely think if the Wright off is there, theyshould probably move him on, but for the rest of the team. I think theyshould try and keep them. However, another put, I think, Kemi's leaving,because I can't remember what his deal is with Madrid. I think it was just atwo year: Lon deal from Raumadrid, so if he goes an the censure goes, theycould almost been the situation again. whethe'v almost got a restart, so akind of getting a bit frustrating. I wouldn't want to be adormant faned, but yeah. I think lifes Ol probably havemore hope than Dorman. If I'm honest, I just think dominer in this, never ending cycle of they become contenders and then theirbest players get picked off and then they've got to do it again, but yeahwe'll see what happens. THAT'S PRETTY MUCH! It really thanks for coming on Roy no problemsgreat to be on yeah, it's good to have you on again this time for your actualDavut. Yes, QUITE NRIGHT ad you! Yes! So once again, if you do listen to theAFL predictions podcast, I don't know if there's much of an overlap betweenthe budes league and the AFL audience, if I'm honest, but there is one or twopeople who listen to both just forget about the dabut stuff. IfRo, you just think pretend I'm talking to broady only and yeah that's BenEpisode. Sixteen today tonight the NRL starts so I knowyou're on enrl Fan Roy, but Australian Australian sport is back soon to bether, fflas well and hopefully, basically, the rest of the Soco Leaguesaround the world, join the Bundes, leaguee and restarting, and we get lovesport back pretty much yeah.
