ABOUT THIS EPISODE

Rhett again joins the show to finish up the series of reviews done for European Football. This time the boys review the Spanish and Italian 2019/20 seasons by analysing players, teams & accolades and presenting awards for performances over the course of the season.

Welcome back to the onable POAIS'sepisode, fifty eight of Wich, Jo, I hope it's fifty eight 'cause. I havejust check in fre shorts, Um Yeah. We were going to film this quite awhile ago. I think maybe early last Weke, but we we're here today so wwe're not out of date likewywer with the English premie league, one so m.You know we could be cracking some current gags and on staff bim todaywintechatabout I, Spain and Italian football seasons. Once again, I knowthey finished about a month ago, but it's alwost a good preview. I reckon toreview the last season, no, even though law seasons a different base, TothiSasand, like it's good, to say, who did well and like who to look out for whenyou're watching this season Um. So it's actally been interesting to do that,but yeah h. How are you going anyway? Yeah, I'm good Ma just Chon. I've gotno mid semester, break ser, yes, relaxing Noyeah, hope ever n outthere is Welltoo. So can we just get straight into it? I I say that everysingle episode, let's get Straighin to a bit Um, no, not really a good way to Seguainside just roll withbout M Al Right, a a Pang, just a quick season. Rad CapChampions, O the League wher, the dridd champions leage spot winners were BarsaAletico and Sebea. Europa League Spott, Winnenfortville Vileral, real SOCIA DATand Grenado, and relegated teens, Werleganaz, meoka and Spaniel. The Cupfinal wasn't played so I don't know if that's going to be played all theedescribing it. It is Chedule Fon, Socia, Dad versesbill ball, so we'll see howelen goes and also sheoud out through severe for winning the Grope, a Leaguefor like the seventh time. This decade I don't know yeah, I don't know, Ithink seven's too many. I think it was like five but yeah, it's pretty sillystuff from saveo Um ar so straightaway. Rice tames have impressedyou the most mat Um. If going with Granada, I don'tknow, if you gon, goand San one yet, but um yeah newy newly promoted. If I have that correctaalready qualified for the Rit Belegue, the Most Valuable Playo have dad isonly worth ten million. I think it's a goakeeper, so there are a bunch ofmyths, but they've just performed pretty well to be fair. Sixteene winds, yeah positive record. I think it wasjust impressive that they managed to get promoted and then have some goodperformances against some of the better teams, as well with only four ou yea, forty fivepercent esection Pegam, and they just was just parking it and then hittingthem on t account Ta. So you go to respect yeah. It's actually happened a fewtimes recentl, I know Gatafe, they didn't Um, they weren't promotin the year beforebut like they just came out of nowhere mad. They ntmade the champions o Gott,know and like we saw er this year in England, with Um Sheffield and stuffand war behamte did a years ago a lot of team wo just randomly pop of out ofnowhere and yet Grenada Wert in my list, as you suggested before, even when thesecond division last season as well. So this probably wasn't predictable Um.They didn't spend much money Tho, they only had eight million Um. I don't knowther currency years, probably transfer loss, Um, so yeah pretty insane thatthey qualified for the Europe League and Um. I guess we USD have to say ou.They go similar situation also sooner Um similarly promoted like Renardo,they came tenth four points below Crenada and they also didn't spend muchmoney there and they had a thirteen mil transfer Lostso it simal boat. Therevery well Doneto, both those sides. Um Other Tanesat, impress me look it's a tough one, because hiyspent so much money, but midrid they did go from thire to first. They didhave a positive point. Difference like from last season to this season of pluseighteen, so they improved quite a bit when people probably weren't expectingthem to improve. I know they didn't play that best footythis year and that was probably shown in thei champion result. I did get apretty rough draw with Man City, but assumed they came second in Thet Group.If that was the case, O that's thereforl, but yeah they spent, theyhad a transfer loss of two hundred and twenty two meal. So like it s notreally like, I don't really want to get around and foll that Esum you'd expecta good.

A Goup resolt from NA vilereal isprobably the maintain for me Thogh. Apart from the two promoten felons m.They went from forty four points en last year to sixty points this year.Fourteen th last year to fifth this year, I'm almost made the champion'sleague this season and they actually had a twenty five million dollar woonce again: anothe currency but IM transted a transe PROFOR of twenty fivemeal. So that's pretty silly business from them to just wip that out um thether used to be a pretty good team quite a few years ago and then fell off a on e Lat. Five years yeah they usedto havfend up place. Yeah, I think Santigis all is at the base of thatmidfiemd for the last two years and he's improves the side quite a bit anda few other plays from them impressed us, which we might get into a bit later.Tames had disappointed you areyu going straight for the top yeah. I'm gonstrike for the threat, an Baclana 'cause. They theye just made so many mistakeswith their transpir Um. I don't know if you cau, Thei transper policy ortransper decision making s just been so poor they've, just hi've got too manyplayers in the same positions at the wrong age and it just asn't works outFrand, some of it's being a little bit of misfortune with Denballes injury,Recordm, and but apart from that, honestly, Ithink gratsman was a poor cor decision th. I think that in they just didn'tthink t at through H, howte going to fit him in fit him into the side in thenext two years. It was never going to happen if they wanted to keep messy, swaras and stuff like that. There's too manyplays. You want to come to central towards the ball. So they just didn'tmake any good decisions there and then yeah in the whole. The pall point ofthose decisions was to to give them a chance of winning rightnow, and I think eteryone can say that's just not going to happen. Theirplays is starting a fool away and yeah they've just set themselves up reallypoorly for the next four years. In my opinion, yeah, I think Mijrid as well, eventhough I said they impressed us kind of M. I don't know what it is with Spain,Paermabe Atletic ar and some of the lower teams um they just suck atransferslikse, the German teams, and they are so good at transfers. We HavaTrinan Barceline in the last five years of Acin rancid signing like MajriIrboth of American. They have a below FITO cent strike rate of good sidinslike for sure like Petenia, debele Grasman, there old, plus hundred Milsignings, and I didn't think a single one of them has really worked. As yousaid, dim ballet is a bit stiff, but um still can't really say it was a goodsining, yea, Aman, N Majrid. Likewise might talk about it later but, like youknow, slapping Sixty Millon Lukiovic out of frankfoot like stuff like thatthey just take too many wrists. U They just like even Pestrya smather withtheir money these days them it's just silly business I well, it actually issilly business um so that probably need to Hun goobook t himso restructure, maybetheir transferd policy. I think Bossis, all all over the joint they've got thepresident who you know same as mar they both have presidents who like to havetheir say and then, like messy, sticks this fingers in the transfer makingdecisions. So I E it's all over the joint and yet barsaw. This sqord was soweird this year. Half of them are like over thirty I'L Bemarin. Half of themare like eighteen, it's like I'm prety sure that te go one in their primespect. I think out of the plays that play at a thousand minutes, O nwe hadfall under twenty five or three, maybe, and and they just sold Arthur, who wasone of them, so they had Diong Olangla and ant Sophaty, I'm pretty sure.That's allthe. Only three undertwenty five thisage is like twenty eight or Somehlyeah like Tistagen and UMT, probably like the inly bloks, who kind of inthat prime and like long Liy as she suggested and Frankie is approachinghis prime but Yeh ITW's, just bizarre like on a given day that has puares andmessy and pkey, and then they'd have like Ricki, P, Pwigu and Um Bloody Anso faty and Carlos CallasParis, who cracke sheets and left in January. So H, knoit's, come here. It'sstrange, probably answere fatty was probably the shining lot of the seasonyeah. He looks like he's going to be pretty good, so jis Ricki Puig,actually at the basin midfield, but yeah that Baffalon is probably the size like thesize of Baselona. You probably want your plays to be developing at otherclubs, and then you bring them when they're ready to go like you probablycan't afford them developing in you tain, but I guess Ay to well ut yet mother tangs hate disappointed me Olivez,...

...like a look they're pretty mythical,but they drop from eleventh to sixteenth Um, had a negative points like to forentialfrom law season of eleven points as Spaniel's, probably the main one thoughthey drop from sevents, which is Europe Europal League spots M. Fifty threepoints last season to coming dead last this year. Twenty five points, so they almostdropped. Thirty points between two seasons, they're, a pretty historicteam. I was looking at their history o today and they've been religated fourtimes every single time. They've come up next year, sir. There is hope forSpaniel fans, but yeah. It wasn't pretty the to be fair to their credit.They did make the EROPA league round to thirty two which isn't hard 'cause.It's all these stages you're going to get through, and then they lost a wall,six stree on Egrgrookit yeah, coming Twenti and only winning s like earningtwenty five points. That's pretty average. So I'm not sure how it's Eve,impulsible, really to draw from seventh to twentieth, but they've done it soyeah, 'm, Aright Omay as well getstraightened to the playes 'cause. We've got quite a lot to get throughtoday with the two leagues playes it impressed you most. Who are you looking at here? I've gonewith a player who I I really like. Don't like him as Ls Jus. Does he justrubs me up the wrong way? Bout? TBOC COTOI? I was I pretty like unimpressedwith him et Chelsea. I thought he was like severely overrated, but he somehowmanaged to on himself and moved to Madrid after playing for our father. GoAr mother, just dog out just ship Ik clearly, but seventy ninepercent sa percentage only just improved greatly from from the way hewas playing at Shelsea, only conceted zero, poin six Gols Penini three gallsbelow the expected goals. He was um expected to concede, which is prettypretty impressive for a keeper and Yeah ther're, just twenty gills insideten inthe third. In the thirty four games with eigteen N cleanshades, nothing, Madrid's defence was, in the end thebest o the shining lit of their sason. They relied on Benzmola uptop puff indefence. I think they were pretty solid and a lot of their winds, particularthe end of the season where one nel scrapes, through with my a Surgo Raasparaldy, O freakitg Butyeah. So he was pretty impressive for me. I was actually a joy at the end of thefeesand like ye just put in te penalty black for like four games in a row. Hescored like a penalty or a Freaky, and they won one. I it was ridiculous, butphilly he's like getting up there and the Gul. The Gulf standingsbmy treelove. He schoole Myn Family Shewas, like yea pobably school, was likearound ten every year, so like ten for, like fifteen like twelve years orsomething shel he's actually getting up there yeah a player impressme, I can't lie. Ihave a lot of strikes today. So it's B of strikathemed episode, but Um thereused to be a lot of good strockes in Um. These two leagues, like even the weirdteams. Most of them have like one good strike Dizarr but um. So my managedJerad Merino, the Villaryal Strika. He is twenty eight years old, so youprobably wouldn't expect him to come in impress us by now and he's creat, buthe had. He went from eight gold law season to eighteen gills this year,which put him in third in the Golden boot of the llegua behind Mesi anBenzima. He went from one o sister five, this season he had six men in thematches for Villara, which was tied fit in the league. All his key passes wentup there in the top twenty five for the League. He shot per game went up. Hewas in the top ten for that start and his dribbles went up and he was in thetop twenty for that as well Heis, just to kind of you know, shor how bi hisimprovement on last eason was his huh. Scored rating went from six point.Seven, nine to seven point three one which put him in the top ten for theLeague, so e headid pretty well, it's kind of strange that a twenty eightyear old strike would just come out and umblits all like he's past, um, statsand stuff, but yeah very good effort. Twenty three gall involvements is themain thing for him, so yeare pretty impressive. I don't know why. I see Iget the vide that a lot of Spanish strikeis they um they like blossom, pretty late likeyou've got. You had lekes like ageres and stuff like that who really likestarted getting good light in their Karea Owl, we'll see if he can be oneof those Um. Someone else on to shout out this Gy's a bit of a gag justbecausefullam decided to buy Hem Flik thirty five meal on the last day, theTransen Windaw last season, but Um Andre Franks S, Zanber Ongisa, Um, fullon bordon from Marsa, I think for thirty five and he went on to just bepretty average in a relegated side.

However, Fulothey went down to thechammonship and loaned him out to Vilareal Heis a cedian twenty fouryears old. He secured a WHO scored riting of seven point: Zero, six, whichwas a that's quick masse. Um, zero point: Three: seven improvement on lastseasons, raiting at ful that seven point Zerosex put him in the top twentyfive the whole of Olega. He won five men in the matches whichput him in the top ten from sedium, which is pretty impressive. He won twopoint three aerials this season compared to one last year. So I don'tknow if it was the move to Spain. Maybe the midfields are smaller because, likeSpanish people are usually smaller than the premie league, Minfield is, but heseemd to be a lot more physically dominant in Spain and his CPASSES andtroubles increased. He was actually forth in the League for dribbles, whichis pretty surprising from a physical CDM. You wouldn't really expect that Umwhen you got blogs like messy and stuff running around so yeah. Obviously,masew was above H in that step. But you know, like small wings, is what I meantm yeah. He was pretty impressive and I think, while at the moment he is notmoving anywhere so he's gone back to Fullam an we could see him in theprimiee leg again this year since formed did get promoted. I was lookingat Fullam Sdians from the championship and there is a bit of a spot for him. Therethet had this flight called like Harrison Rad. He wasn't reallyproducing anything, silly um in that position and they playd Tom Canny inthe midfield. So I don't know what their signings have been or will be,but Um if cenny is going to be in thatmidfield, they probably need a bit of a defensive. Rock and NGESA could providethat forform. But ye who knows they might be a bit scarred from him fromlast season and might keep him out of Pillara or something but we'll see howhe goes. Have you go any other for those for this category? No Ias, justunder headcut I down back on gaze. I remember us being pretty excited by hisstatistics. He was one os THAs Um, impressive, UM, young French players, O from the Frenchleague. I mean, but he didn't, he couldn't quite get enough Gan time,Atforn, a D. I think Thare was a big mistake on their part to be honest, butomhappy that he's he's performing somewhere else and I think if they, if they don't decide to put him in ahead of canny they're Gong, to make a big mistake. 'CAUSE canny was horrific. Last time you played in theperma leg yeah. I know what they'll do with canny 'cause he's market going. Lolegend Ye t, especially when in the Primier League, if you're playing likethey've, got a pretty good front, thray with Mitrovich and Knocot and stuff. SoI don't know if you can afford to have canny in the midfield like you mightneed some guys, hobit hys more physical than him, I ill say 'cause. They kind of stopped playinghim at the end of last season, but we'll say othe go players aredisappointed. Me Yeah. We were talking about this a bit Alf far, but it'sprobably the hardest award to give. Well, it's not really award. Is it's aif Rost A to say a Yaga? Ask Bas? It's a pretty dog since she's thirty, threeso he's clearly just you know, he's posty's Pakue, he's on that declaw nowum and so he's a striker from Seltavego.He went from twenty goals and twenty six matches last season to fourteengoals in thirty seven matches this year. This was his lowestgoall perminute season he's had since loonful in thirteen fourteen, where heonly playd three hundred and eighty minutes. So this is basically the worstseason hes had in ages. His assis drop from six to three DOS wite. Despiteplaying a thousand more minutes m once again men an h matches dropp from sixto two, his shotper game dropped. His pass accuracy dropped five percent,which is not really sure how that happens in Myn near but and then hiskey classes dropped from two point, one to one point: Five, so yeah,unfortunately for Ourspas, despite what I was saying about Morano and Spanishstrikers, it does look like he has. You know enjoyed his moment in the sun inthe last three season and to be fed. Him He's been great in the last threeyears, but I think he's period of dominance, itsel to vago is probablygone, but all be at fourteen gollars and thirty. Seven is not that bad for astrike in a lower mittomid table team. So yeah, I guess it's o the Wyr Saand.It's just compared to what he's been putting up racently. No, when you'R isgood ty I actually love EAGA apasy is one of my favorite places to watch'cause he's just so unique, lucky she's, just like a weird do he doesn't seemlike a football, but he slouts them home for fun M. Have you got anyone forthis award or wether Yo, O Gose, I' Wot to Igot? First of aldcue I have um themost disappointing signings and these two guys were both new signings, butfor the most disapponting PLA I have to...

...go hazard 'cause. I was honestly I lovewatching him play Li. Like you said about aspas. I just love watching herLD play he's just when he's on. He has to be one of the best plays in theworld and ithink for the whole last season. He was just he was onlone forthe entire season. He contributed to thirty one gollrs Um, that's just inthe League, F ficiesy and all we statd ton this year of just half, basicallyshotpegain his keypasses, both halfed his her school writing. Just dippedherrifically and he hasn't had te season, is bad sonce. I think Chelseafinished, maybe eight or ninth after they won oneis hardein that Yor. Yes, he hasn't. He hasn't been Um this bad since sincethen, when Hehe only contributed to four gols and three sists in in twentyfive games, so to only contribute four goals: Um Four gurls that combine goals an assistin in a thousand minutes. It was pretty he came in looking like if I could meetball as well. So I just e just didn't look like he was taking it seriously. Ithink and V that amount of money exactly. I don't think he liked that hewasn't to go to playor like he didn't. Have EverythingDin go throughing, the way it did at Chalessea and I think he just didn'tsuit being a complimentary, a complimentary player, I think likeCatinio Um, Emar Yeah. They need everything to gothrough them. If you know what I mean, I think tames need to take that intoaccount a bit more Yick. We talked about in the last episode with RCharleson but yeah. I do think tames need to think about that a bit more.They just kind of see. Oh yeah he's the best player in their team. Let's gethim, they probably do need to think about a dynamical a little bit more Y,a Um CA, O reason why people fail yeah yeah, I think yeah, it's everything'snever going to fly through hem when he plays around with trod. So I think it'she may improve next Avin, but he'll have to change and adapt his game star,which Ho can see if he can do but yeah yeah. Hopefully he can 'cause he's he'sgreat to watch when he's on yeah a D, it's a bit silly having hasautamn bailin the pod, yeah hoeully. You know SOM right that o into the best signings ofT, my I've got two budget blokes. I had a couple around the ten to twentymillmark who I were pretty good as well, but I've gone even cheaper than that Um.So I'll start us off. My first lad is hosalut. He is a striker. Thirty years old heplayed for Deportivo Alevez m. He got bought for two point: Two four millionfrom Newcastle, so absolute bargain at New Castle. He did nothing Um. He onlyplayed five hundred and eighty seven minutes, and this year he paid twothousand a D, seven hundred and eighty six. So already that's a wind for thatprisepoint. If you're getting that many minutes out of someone, it doesn'treally matter how they do m, but he scored eleven goals m registered toassist. He was in the top ten for goals in the League. This is the weirdeststart. He had eight point, seven aerials one per game which systom context: That's the mostin Europe's top five leagues. By one point, three and he's not L he's pretty tall he's ahundred and ninety two centimators, but he's not like like Vegue Horse, thewoolspog striker. If you know H, he's a hundred and ninety seven centimetors.So there are toll borks out there Um, but yeah eight point: Seven Arewas, agame, absolutely insane. As I said, sor far in front of everyone else in inEurope, Ame had ten men of the matches for Aleves, which was second in theLaliga only behind messy. U, I think had like twenty two year, tals of itsilly. I guess that's to be expected Um. He also registered two point. Fourshots pe game, which I know shot sounds like a' e, been of a weird stat becauseit's just like. Well, everyone can shoot if they want but Um. You knowit's to score Gor, which you have to shoot. So it's important that you'reshooting a lot. He was in Topton to shoot, shooting and Um keypassesdribbles and num. They both rose and then the number of passes completed toa game actually doubled. So he just had a lot more influence on the match mthis season, so yeah, I'm interesting that he failedat Newcastle, but I'm really killed of this year and just another lightbloomer of Estri Spanish Straka. So there you go Um Yoit who, who you got for best signingI've gone with. I don't think he's signed, but I think he was online soderReguam yeah. You left back ot a baste ma a sorry out of ramdred. I think hehe just progressed so much and I think...

...he did. I did really well with him to get himout and get him online, so he played twenty five hundred Mons. Basically,almost every game: Twenty Nine appearances, two gold foreces fromleftback, which is pretty impressine and statistically he was the best leftback in the league this year, according to Hes scuorrds. So I think for him toprogress so much in once he's in that twenty three years old, I thinkRhomedrad are GOINGTA, end up selling him. So I think someone's going Ta geta really good deal on him. Seeing as I have fellom end, nothing, they rightmay be more highly than him. I think someone could get a really gooddeal and a really good playe for the long term, so I think yeah that mightbe a good bit of business for Ramadred to recrex some money if they can getsome serious value out of him, so ycrest memosthe's w think tot Onihavely link with him, which would be a great signing, Cauzeum da on in thefullback area. In the last like two years, they tribrinin Serch Orea thatfailed. I know they sold carwalcipeders or be that's on the other side, butthey got rid of him this year, Donny Ros um he's done so yeah. He would be agood replacement. I actually agree with it before on', actually think it's thebiggest fat like, I think it's in the twenties or something which would be inInsa who bdo Ye, I con't get aance yeah libensire well, there's just no way,but there's no way Bensire worls better than him, and he went for like whatfifty forty five or Soinam soone Rin Andshel. That highly honest, I think,e's just because he's English Yein, the old English tax and Lesta, justforgetten Um Jus, the just Gong Everyon, add fifty meal o the Frist and they dounreal business to Benyeah they're, pretty SFAR arigt. Next another myth.My man is called Chimy Avilla, two point: Seven meal: Twenty Six year oldstrike, he went from Westco to Elsasuna, so he jumped from a relegated, teamto apromoted team. He did his ACL in Janunary, so I only got three half theseason, but he had nine goals and two assist an eighteen starts similar and he actually had similarnumbers to ther his last season as well for WESTCO. Just a time o bet better'cause. I thin he had less minutes law season, so he's a pretty impressivestrike. So I'm not really sure what he's doing with relegated and promotedsides. But U M he's shots. He was second in the League for my shots,which is impressive Um, given the fact that he wasn't playing like a top team.He was second to messy. He had three point: Five agame five men in thematches which put him in the top tem for that Um. He had one three point:one aerials a game which puts him in the top thirty for the league, buther's a e hundred and seventy two centimators so he's clearly an absolutefiter like a bull Argentinian bull who just launches himself around and he hadone point: one key passes which doubled las seasons: Keeass I'm tally for him.So I 'as pretty impressive for striker andalso sooner we said before they did pretty well but, like the I'm sure theywent dominant in many games, so yeah he did pretty well shame. He did he ay salin Janurary 'cause, who knows if he doubled those tallies, and he hadeighteen goals for the season that he could um be looking at a big move thisoff season, but yeah at the moment, he's sticking it out with alo soonerand we'll see how he goes once again, this season, Um, have you got anyoneelse to mention here or no, not for bestony yeah. I got a few more. Ididn't want to do like five, but Um Rapena. He was he's still with boss, Om Niney NieCental, but he got loarned out to Seltavega Herand. He killed it. Heplayed in a little bit more deep in position than he normally does heracked up some nice defence in Numbas and did really well and attack as well,and he was actually maybe they bought him 'cause. I have a transfer fee,hesidonnow 'cause. I've got here that he went for fifteen meals, so maybethey did buy him Um, pretty poor research. For me, there Faki also didpretty well. That was a bit of a strange scrarning. It was cheap. It wasonly twenty meal. After like two years ago, there wassums of like seventy mill, bangs frowin around for him, but he was a bit oldernow and he has a injury history. He did pretty well for rail, Batis and thenLucas a campulse. I think he was playing for SEVEA. He has been all over the place, butFIFTA mill. He did pretty well as well M. I think he was down the same flankas regular. Maybe- and he do pretty well there that moves us ontodisappointing signings Um, I'm just going to say it straight up,Aunton Grasman Yi think he's no doubt the number one twenty nine Ou fourd foran hundred and twenty mils straightaway.

It's got to be S. it's just shockingbusiness. I don't think anyone above the age of twenty six should really gofor more than a hundred meal. Unless it's like rinaldomessy like it's just so risky Um, but yeah um go involvements dropped from twentyfour to thirteen, so I know he had less minutes because you know he couldn'tstart and stuff like that, but he's gone involven trop from wo twusand andfour to thirteen M. His shots dropped from three point, one to one point: six,his men in the matches drop from four to one, his fho scored rating. Oh, no,that's not! Right! I said Hes, ses C raiting truck from four to one can't ben. He was bad, but not that bad and his keypasses dropped from two to zeropoint. Nine, so yeah a lot of his stat just haved, which is not promising Um and yeah. Just really struggled at Bas,as we talked about before. Have you got anyone for this one yeah for most disappointing, going withLukyovich ut, because he just had so much promes coming out of Frankfertwith, I think yea. He got. He had seventeengirls and five asis last season and could only ethe men to start four games.The season two girls onassist in seventeen appearances, wishest, reallydisappointd- that he didn't get more of a go and that he couldn't convert. U Yet conver Anhe bestart indecentperformance CONSEMPRSA. I remember missing some seriously easy chances.Thi Sato, I don't think he was just challing with the Ramadrid squad. Wasthe UN wood immediatelike initially out of OmRomdredso hoply? He can pull it together, 'cause. He was reallypromising when he was at Frankfor. He just showed snes that he could be a top player, butyet I hope that he manages to her to Pur it together ecause. He was disipindthis season Eah, it's a pretty risky signing. Sixty mill on a player fromFrankfort Eto be Kindt from Hod Timaturad, sohewasonly he was only twenty two, so it could work out to be good. I wasreading about him this morning and apparently 'cause the Waphir nationsleagues this week or somethingand. He is rejected to Callu to stay aroundTatrid preseason, so Um is obviously looking to fight for that spot, butit's Goin to be hard with anobenzoens getting old, but he killed it. Thisyear, Aman the've got on on the wings. They've got you know, fienisis, vascarsand Roderego, who all actually registered more League appearances thanhim. You know it's going to be tough,especially venises in Roddrigo 'cause they're, only like nineteen, and theyalso look very impressive yeah, we'll see how see how he goeis M.I was looking at these pernonhe stats, most of them weren't. Actually that bad,it was just. He just don't get many opportunities her sa Yeh. There wasn'ttoo much a Mar, which is promise yeah yeah, that's a good thing. Um Shofelixis another one I wanted to mention like I haven't done anything in death, butyou've just got to question a hundred and twenty six mill. Luck, that's a lotof money and probably didn't live out. He he started off really well, and thenI don't know if sye go enjred or anything, but he kindof died down a bitlight. Ind The SASON but yl see how he goes her shes another one to look outfor 'cause. He e could come out and tear it up. He'sonly twenty or Whateversir, we'll say how he guars 'cause a e hundred, antwenty six millions lot of money he did perform well actually, in their lastchampsleg Um Chamesof the game. Before they go knocked out. He was a shininglight for them, so hopefully m together or I playes who should get amove. I think we both have the same bloke forthis. For this category, John Aranase statset, Mer, parker, no Davin runthrough the statsite rise. Parker tells go, Gavean Begon, gaven, J drun made o play, Gavin p Damon or we tok he about Thekell,Marina, I'm twenty four year. Ol, by the way, if you like a from Melbourneand you've just listened to that Youd haven't know, I you Oor, if you'renobeter in age, Fiv, Dan and twenty five Um, but yeah Um twenty four yearold, sent amed from Ril Solciadad, mccel Marino, premie league fans, you might know 'emhe played for new calsue united for two seasons. I think about two seasons: Gor.I think it was twenty sixteen sevente and seventy and eighteen this season hekilled it. He was top five in the League on Hos scored rating. He had six GOL volvements from the basein midfield, which already that's pretty impressive. He was registeringone point, two sholts, a game which is pretty impressive from that position.He was winning five point: one aerials a game which puts him in the top fivein the League Um. He was awarded five...

...men in the matches, which is anothertop ten for him Um. He had three point: six tackles and interceptions agame tackles he was at top twenty for that Albet in that top twenty. I thinkthere's about sixteen defenders, so that has to be taken into account. SoHe's right up there for his position. One Point: full clearance is prettyimpressive and zeropoint nine CPE passes. So heus has a beautiful balanceof defence and attack both skys either dominant ind defense dumnat. An attackgets rare that you find someone e can do a bit of birth and he seems like hecan do that, I'm only twenty four years old, so Um, I guess Soshared Dad. They did make theopaleague this season and they made the cup final and stuff like that. Sothey're, a pretty good club, but um he's. Maybe someone who a bigger clubcould take a chance on twenty four. So still got a bit of progression in himand with those stoubts it suggest that he could. You know, perform at a highelevel for a h, Better Club, so M N, I'm not talking Barloin or matrude oranything. But I don't know just a bit of a step up m the the sort of levelI'm talking is maybe like a maybe like a Leon or Um. I don't even know like a atelant orsomething now athlat A it's very strict like that T. yeah stuff, like that boyhow aboutEvertons, transfere, well, th, they don't rumes ther oinghumis and a obelieve it yeah Hummas an on rogs Alan is an UNROA siing yeah, it'spretty old, Oll anelog he's got the he's, got the pulling pail he's got theconnections yeah, it's impressive, Um, so yeah that might not be a spot ofEverton pn, but soming like that. You know we're talking about so I think hewould be would pick up for someone, but you know sociate ow there a dacent club,so if he stays there, I'm sure he'll continue to do well, then I've gotsomeone else here: Uri Alvarez Twenty Five Year olds send back from Bill Bell.Heuld, probably just play that the whole of his career, but um he's prettygood, fit and interceptions in the league top fifteen for clearances topten and blocks top twenty for arials one. So just a bit of a general downback for them Im only twenty five. So he could, you know, do a Sald Stin tohe a big bit of a bigger club, then bill bownn and maybe come back homeafter, but I can't see that happening too much, but he probably deserves itUm and then to other guys. I wanted tomention I'm nook Ong through this stats or anything but Yango Horera. He was aloney from Man City he put on aclinic. He was like thirteenth N, whoescored writing and he's only liketwenty two, I think he's leftback Um and then I think e motiplayed, Fo Grunout n t know. I've got two bluks yer, so I'm probably getting confused andthen there's another Guy Ma. What fit of the strangerst footy club on ear.They've got te N ye they've line this this gus from Walford Pervis Ste PinnonUm. I think he might be the sadium. Actually one of he's Aleft I moeresadium out of ther hic on EGE and Um. He was like Forte in her schooldranking am so they've got him and Henthegot Kucho Fenanda still outonline and now they're a championship clubs. So I don't know what they'redoing there, I'm so like it's ot AF gold, mine they're sitting on there,but they've probably got twenty meal between those two yea, but they're notgoing to Gav ye a little bit lt but yeah. Well, now, enow theave opofthemselves, but yeah it's Bi strange! Well, maybe they bring them back in ina bid to get promoted, which would be interesting to saybecause they has some interesting talent, Adam line, anything else. Youwant to say about the Lalega. Before we had over to Italy I mean the one playerI I really wish would come to the permalatue from from LALEGAS Salfromfrom athletic. He shuse a consistent performer he's twenty five years oldhe's just entering hes STI at least five years of his prime I'd say, and hejust super superconsistent Um. I think he's on. He is on a long termcontract yeah Denissa like ten years or something ther ta to with like a onehundred mil one hundred or one hundred million buil, but even thi season. Fourpoint: Three tackles and interceptions penoni Um, six, seven galls from central Goodfield.He played on the left in the Middle Ahacking, the field defensive midfied,in every single position he played. He had over a seven point. Oh M Whohschoolwriting, which is pretty impressive, shows his versatility, yeahyeah. So I think I'd love to see him yeah onhis on his team, someone whoalso impressed me. I didn't watch too much of him. I watched Gim in thechampion's against us and then I watchd gym. I think I watched them twice afterMoo Um. What's Hisr name, Ronon, Lotdy or something I Rana Moe yeah, he...

...killed it against us. He was so goodlike Ashaor. He was one of their best players on the night and he's only Idon't know how old he is. Othink may be twenty one. They signed him from Brazilor soming Um. So here's someone who I might keep an eye on this seasonbecause he could jump into that top eschelon offollbacks. If he puts together another good year 'cause he looked reallypromising. He did a job like Ioeaemer what edge he um was on tobe honest, but he didn't eyea. He O left back a left back here and Le Ne,who that plays to be honet, the a anous attack yeah and then whowas the guy they signed from Rell Yo, just PF, Marcus, rente yeah and he justbecame like a stroke. It was just unreal Al a pretty impressive Sadaoyeahas every year about I yeah this year. I definitely want to watch it a littlebit more Europaian football. So I let it co someone. I want to watch a bitmore, but Italian, foody Um speaking of things I want to watch a bit more.Syria is probably jumped into the top two legs Arica in the world. Its gotsome spicy competition. Now so the CH SEASON RECAP: A UVE won the title,obviously inti right behind them. I think there are only five points behindit. In Tie. End were summing. They won champion's, Legue Atalanta and Lasiaboalso won their way through to the Championleagu spots. Europalegueconsisted of Roma Milan and napely and relegated teens were Letche Brechaandspowl, the Cup und napply, Bat Ouventus in the finel and yes tames and impressed us the most.Who are you kicking off with here Ihave gone with Adelanta, which I'm sure youmight you would have hel look out as well. Ninety eight Goll scort she youngjust the key in indicated for me that just play an unreal style of footballthat you just don't see in eagily. Most of the time, they're really focused ondefensive football. That's what everyone knows he telling leavfor, butif you watch ADALANTA, there's they're just playing nowhere. Nothing like that to Scor two point: Five, two point: Sixgalls per game for the entirety of the season. I thinkthey were the top score is in Europe. Maybe, apart from bime an eny finish firepoints off the title,so I think that was jus. They just play a unique brand foo with guys that youwouldn't expect to just keep banging e en hat. They have t ey had three playsscore. Fifteen plus calls. I don't know if there was another side in Europe whohad three guys school fifteen girls in the league. Actually, I'm pretty surethere wasn't sorry yeah, that's pretty pretty impressive, I'm not alone aswell. So yeah it's pretty impressive, especiallythey do't rely on individuals. The fact that they have so many guys contributemeans its or its mainly sisten dat. I think tha, the coach Gasperini. I thinkit is the people should be getting around.You is aoing himshocking, Teim, H, Li e Gassi, ovousy dont, listen to thisrubbish B, Yeah Afterlanta they're a good one, as you said like sometimes Ifear that when pappugome is and illechuch leaves they're going toplummet, but, as you said, they share I around so I don't really have fears forthat and they have pretty good production out of the academy and agood transfer policy. So yeah, I think they'll be right up therefor a long time. More, especially when Gussie is coaching Sa Gasi, Gastra M- or I don't know, tensin presss O wesang Iteimpressaia o similar to Midrid. They bought success but you're load. Sowhat are you going to do? Ju t sit there and save money like a widow. Solast year they came. Fourth, sixty nine points this season. Second, eighty twopoints I think ther might have only been one point behind you theyy theywere 'cause, I'm pretty sure Youvega. Eighty three fromte they mad to find Olthe ROPELEAGUEAS. Well so if they came second and on the oplage, thatae been apretty good year after some hard struggles at int over the last likedecade ever since they won the Championlig. Basically they did spend one hundred and twentytwo mill, but they spent it pretty. Well. Lkakiwas a great signing, I'll be honest, can't een, remember who else they sawand like ericsonv Christmas and Sanche Onafra stuff I larn and atually on OderYeah, the strange stuff Victor Moisis, a weird Foro, the main one was Conte coing in tocoach the fellers m, one of the best, probably a top five, if not top freedcoach in the world right now, he made a big difference in Irackon.INTA should probably go into this seasonas favorites to win the league. Irec an UM, so yeah. Well, maybe not 'cause! You Ay Um! You know they'll,probably buy a few good, playrs and...

...stuff like that. They've already gotauter. You know I didn't even know about the Arte Piani swap tilled. Thesmal Oh happened like three months ago. I think they're going to struggle. UANis overhind on transfers. I think at Cugo two ways with eventistwith pearlew in charge. I think he could just Implo d not know what he'sdoing, but also you don't know what that goes seems like bit Virginia so Mi,also R, a Lampad, Um, inspirational type leader, so yeah that'll be interesting to watch,but yeah, it's going to be a really good lague again this year, um otherTams hat impressed us. This is probably the main one for me, but Lattio Nuanthey jumped from eight for they jumped from eighth to fourth. They went fromfifty nine points to seventy eight. They were in second for a long time. Ithink right up until I think five weeks to go, then they or five game weeks ago,and then they started falling back ther D, a few poor losses after lockdown,but they only had an eleven point. Six mill transfer loss Um, so they werereally impressive. All their playis bowled out we'll talk about t in thesecond, but Luise Alberto Chiri, Mabela, Sergi milk, malenkavitch savage. Theyall killed it. So they were awesome, really look likeat one point: they were going to be the ones challenging you, eybut ended upbeing more inte, but there once again, still only five points behind firstplace. So that's just how close the League was and then hell as FORONA.They got promoted through the playoffs. I didn't realize they have promotionplayoffs in Italy as well, so they came fifth in Divto last year got promotedthrough the playoffs. Then this year they came not in the Syria Um, sopretty silly from them. Um Yeah, I didn't really know WHA, they did tha,they didn't really spend much money either ther and they had a twelve MILtransfel loss. M teams had disappointed you who ere you talking about here. Idont know if this is harsh gratio. I think he eventdisappointed meparticularly because when, when you win, when you win ten Um late ies in Arrow Y,your success are not just measured by whether you win the ile or not, because everyone expects them to win. So theygot to show everyone else, something else I think they bought Renowo in towin the Tamb they couldn't. I couldn't do that. They lost prettydisappointingly to Leon with it Yeah Wasleon Yeah Yeah. It was so. I think that that's oLe Compeigaton, if hes Um, Mijrdan Eventus, is Champions League sa YeahYeah, but they had more losses than into an Avalanzo. They got saved by theMAA drawers that Enterha, which ing was close to ten seven or ten Um andthey're just aging in K areas similar to Basselon, I think they're aging atat the back. They have they're still to Relyn on Benuci. I think you play themost Ma, YEA DDEVENS in it most momente an in the whole tame, actually e in themiddle in the middle, the rline on Piani Chang Ramsy, like those sign toomany old players I'll get onto Ramsein. A second pace.Shit? U and they just yeah, think they bougt inm. what's his name, the coach Ecause, thethought he'd bring a more assacking style, but I just don't think he couldimplement the style at all and he just ended up relying on debala and Renawdoto bailing out an going forwards. Ithink they're pretty good decision to shiphim on 'cause. There just wasn't a good fit, but yeah. I think they were Bai'm Presur. They scoredless goals and conceded more goals than Inter, but still MANA TNG on to theTITL. So I just woin to Bisti convincing profense the holsayis an Ithink, they're going to have to do something significant to to win nexteason yeah they'vethey've bought arter, though, which is a good pickup. Well, Ithink anyway, it's itregoing to be interesting to see how he does theylearned in Western mckenney as well. That'll be an interesting one to see ifhe plays at all andn how he doees, because he's someone who, afterwatching shelker he looked good ot, I don't know M, he was playing in a bitof a Barside there. So W e'll say it's a pretty big jump from Mgermany to Um. You know champions like Contendo Jerkanar Yo, partly employed to just get more American fans for them. Maybe Ilspeaking of t a Spaniel that owned by a Chinese owner legidimately two monthsor something after their owners came in. They bought like a Chinese striker. SoI reconlice s. A lot of stuff goes onlike that that we just don't realizeher yeah. That could be ampoy. I guess he s Pobaly, like Pool Sich, likeobviously that he's a star in the fierd, but he would bring so much money andlike m and stuff exactl happy like I remember, growing up, Landin, Donovanand Clint Dempsey. They were lik...

...global supersars and they were not eventhat good just because of where they came from.So it's probably pretty small fortyo fromthem. If that's a bit of the raisin but yeah naphily also they were prettybad. They went from second to seventh so that agic had kind of rubbed offthat a good, really three or four years and sheade got sacked midway throughthe year Um. They went from. Seventy nine pointsto sixty two so really fell off that behind that top pack by Quitea long wayhow the Chammans l they did pretty well. They came second in our groupLiverpool's group and they got results in both games against Livergpool and then they lost a Basselon, an ACRfor two, so they almost made the quarters and Beed bacelone and whichwould have probably changed the outlook, but for them they had a hundred andforty four million in transferd loss. So they made, I think, seven signingsmore than ten mill or something so one of their players. I will mention inmy most disappointing signings, but they threw out a lot of money. Then I wuldn't go into it to it deeply,but Tareno they drop from Europe M Europalleag spots in seventh to justoutside the relegation zone in sixteen, so that was pretty disastrous as well right play hasn't impressed you most Um. Actually I'm going for it because Ilove this man cheer my Bele, the shock Um. He is an absolute lowric and I lovehim. I don't know why there's Seling frobout, I think it's the name and I just like Latyar at the clubs,good name, good, good badge, good colors, um thirty year old, Latye,Stroka ithis man is not getting enough. Plordis, I'm sorry ever Likee, Levendolskis grayeveryone's saying he would have won the Balan doorf. If that Wasone or whateverM and stuff like this everyoud's fralting him old, good, his Grat,hvidly, etting, absolutely danots and he's had probably just as good as aseason. So he scored thirty six and thirty six, but that's already based Um.He scored five more guals in Renelto, so he was topping the Golenbook buquite a long way in Syria. He was also forth in Acise, so he's on, used to haand he's all Iste non. So Not Aon Chi, don't really know what their leaguesprobably slackeing a little bit on that but t that's very handy forty five goal:involements likezontens, don't even schole forty five calls, and that was up from last seasons. Hehad fifteen gulls and Sixisis, so very big improvment on last season, ten menin the matches, which was burst todmost in Seria, Um and yeah I'll, be honest. The restof Youstats didn't really change, she's finishing just how many pens Muscal, Idon't know co ten ten plaspens, but don't we all?Don't we all dot? We Ores, chalk on Otte, notto, eay fat, Mery, strongAprement, you know, yeah Mo strikers do school them as well a I was going tolook at these expected. Gals I'll, be honest. I didn't have time to do it,but absolute bast. He did Rasimen Lazio for five years today. Yesterday, I think sir. We won't beseeing him at any other club, but I think he tried a few clubs early on hiscareer and didn't really have much success. So NOII's probably good thathe just sticks to his bread and bottl in latzier and caves them as achampions. Lig Tame for few more seasons to come and it'll beinteresting to see if this year they just had a you know, soup and overseasand where ebrond starts was sky rocketed by the system or somming, orif this is really how good they actually aren't going to be. But yeah, who L, who do you want totalk about? A' gone with M Mata Lebrosovich Thi is one of thefavorites of the Football Dalia, the ouple DA lads and oursells. I thinkagood comparison he's a more polished version of mcolmarino he's the kind of the kind ofstyle, the kind of player that guys Licke, Marino, Wanta, Gev Olv into he'sjust extremely polished, and he does a bit of everything. So three gos six orSis Alreay, pretty good contributions from defensive midfil. One point: Nineshorts, six point four passes into the final third fortak was in the interception perpenoy. I think he just does a bit of everything. So yeah he's just nd theway he played ishis polished and he just work so well in the system, becamelike the key in the center of the park ore. That side O, I think people havebeen sleeping on him for few years. 'cause he's beeing pretty consistent,Um yeah, especially alongside modrue, an Rackatag, an international level. Hiwas also really impressive in the WO Cup, so ithink Um teams might have just missed ta boat onhim. I think he's getting TN oenty, seven yeaup there in agewhere to get a Mat, O the club you'Regong to have to pay a lot ofmoney. But then will you get that...

...amount of value out of him in Hese lastcouple of years of Hes proing, Tis Careso? He might, I think, inte mightjst, be the perfect place whom I think he should just stay there and continuedto push towards the title, but yeah, I think he's going to be a key a next. It Yeah Tam likint. I don't really knowwhy you want to leave them. They've shown serious progression in the lasttwo seasons, and now they have clear tital aspirations, and you know oncethey do that they could go into bigger and better things. Um Yeah they're anexciting Tam and I think they're a big enough club for him to settle out forthe rest of his career ore growing so yeah. I hope he stays next anothermidfied bit more attacking Louise Alberto Um, Ciro moblae, well notpartner an crime he's on a strike, but you know Hubanhim mmoblay the boys. USo I wish I want lot se Mo e ten couple ofponds, but Um twenty seven year old, centamed, Slash Cam, I'm twenty one,gold, involvements, fifteen o sis, so Sux Gorls, fifteen, a six second intotalsispine, Papugomez Ofatalanta, and you only had nine goald involvementslast season, so he increased it by. What's that twelve um he had ten minut matchens similar tocheer. So both the boys m received man in Matchin, more than half of Latze'sgames, um his shots increased his tribbles doubled that actually more than doubled thisseason and he's in the top fifdand for dribbles in the League. He had the mostrubles ind, the League pet. Ninety and the average tenmore passes agame thisseason. So he as just more involved, which is always a good indicator Um,because o I'd criticized the SPASAIMAFL foall but um. If you're getting the Ballmore, youhave more chance to do stuff with it m so yeah he was really impressive and Iheart lots or ours God this year and I get to watch a few. You know intovesses, latses and stuff like that. I'd be pretty internaining or maybe not,Inter maybe a lot se ASELANTO, but yeah disappointments. Do you have any anyfor this or I've just combined the the the same plane for bothdisappointing and yet stret Inin o going with Aran ransy anthing? Whatpissed me off the most about rases? How much money he's making at the momentheis making four hundred K tour hundred thousand pounds a week? That's almost lie. Seven hundred isrseven hundredthousand this rillin dollars per week. Ave you extend that that towards theyear that's like forty meali'm pret. It waslike forty million dollars a year. Let's double the amount of go theamount of money that salar is making it liverholl and if he compare thei theiroutput. One thousand minutes so he played less minutes Um. Then he played in his last season atAsmel, where he he was injured for quite a load of the season. I'm prettysure he contributed the less goals, contribut less assists it just went down all of Hes cteindicators and just continues to just earn four hundred thousand pounds aweek, just chowing there doing Fucko. So I think they're going to regret that'cause. I think they gave him a decent length contract and no no one is goingto Wan. At this point I don't know why anyone would take take on his fo an Kweek. Contract 'cause, that's burning money in my opinion, so yet nojustshocking decision. I don't really know who Hetout Communay on O. I don't knowwho thought O e Signg, like I genuinely thought. ITD looked toim from fromevery angle. Like I don't know when they were thinking there, Um yeah, it'spretty average. There es the only one Woen in this situation: 'cause YesratanBailstar, but you know yeah yeah players are disappointen me.I weren't spent too long on it 'cause. We are getting up there in time, butU'm Pontic, Um, twenty five yoarld strike only playedthe first half of the season in the Seria before he got shipped off to herto bill in Um but yeah. He just kind of he was reallyhot last year, one of the hottest strikers in Europe and he just couldn'tback at up this season last season. He scored twenty two guals and thirty fourstarts combine for Genoen Milan and this season. In the first half yeronthe had four goals in Um fourteen starts, and I think four benchappearances so yeah it just really fell off, didn't have the magic magic touchthat he had last season. He was taking four point, one shots at Genoa game andhe was only taken around two and a half of Milan. He was getting todispossessed a lot. More often he was getting fowled less so Hewas, just bitless dangerous with the ball, and he was only averaging like justover tenpass is a game of Ilan. So when...

...he was playing, he was just really notinvolved at all. Strike is an't going to be touching athaps, but that's not much at all Um yeah, he was pretty average disgusnrandom to but mando ISO from Tereno CENTABAC twenty eight year old, he'sthrough school rating dropped from seven point two, four to six point:Seven five. His tackle was dropped from two point. One to one point: four, hislong balls dropped from four point. Three to three point: Five: he averageseven passes less a game, so it st showed that Tareno were less dominantthan last year. Some Hor last season. He had like five goals and he Ivera Tukone shot a game so that all came down this year, Um Yeah just pretty mucheverything Um plammeted for the feller and was probably an indicator of Tereno's Falu thisseason. So not really sure what happened. Now I was looking therewasn't like a coach change or anything. So just some magic ran out there M wethsigning I'll. Do that, since you did an one herving Lazano for me, Um Thirty, eight mill twenty five yearold forward. He went from pese feed to Napali. He only started ten games forNapoly and made sixteen bench appearances, so already thirty meal forsomeone WHO's only playing ten matches on on the starting pitch. That's prettydebatable. He went from twenty five goal: involvements to five goldnvolvements, so e he did have half the Gametime, but still dropping fromtwenty five to five. That's a big drop and his keypasses DROPP her ninety. Soa lot of his Pirinani stauts weren't too dissimilar, but Um, really just ifyou've paying thirty eight meal Um for Ford Iknow, napaliis, a fairly siusibleclub, but they're not round matre. They can't just be thrown that around I'm,so go to get him on the field. If you're GOINGTA sign someone for thatmuch, I think we might see him a bit more this year.'cause, I think their front. Guys of you know ageto Bi. I think merchantswent to be backwards last year and stuff like that yeah I think he's done.No! He I think that he's moving to he's moving somewhere, that he's donehis plobb, the last name, an Apali and that board in Ostamen to replace him.So you never know if I can get if they can get ha last few years out insegnerand then help help him develop with Ossamen and having Hesana. You neverknow they co LD. They could really build Yo back out to something but yeaand two others. I'd probably question. I think that war bad signings, butprobably just a bit much or we're not surefiells good signing yetso Toli. Eighty five meal- He playd quite a bit this year, but hisperformance dropped off quite a bit and so we'll see how he goes in the longrum but he's selling at the moment. Who is definitely in the pending section,noarm and then DENIL AR thirty seven meal to basically Wal on the bench.That was a bit of a strange signing. He played a little bit, but not much atall, Um, sir. That was a bizarre one, just so funny exchanging of money fromMansin the Eventi Ihtain, the piecther, so yeah right that Mars us into best signing Y. I think that's the most obvious onewith big wrong Mertecio to enter. Think he just made thimmediate impact. Didwhateveryone thought he was going to do and did for a period a a manches omoded.I think he was just um just severely undevalued matessyadded. To be honest,I think they could go so much more out of him if they just their attack. Um ttheyre attack a bitbetter round Im, but to be far, they they've gone in different, more fastpaced on more versatile direction, which is fairenough. So I think Ye shouthey've, just blossomed, he's just bossomed in thisnew system. Twenty three Gors to assist seven point is Epin: seven, six GOLSINS Pononi and I think his his Um, his shots increased a little bit, but hisefficiency and Um. How clinically he was with those shots. He was what improved h most, so I think hisconflidence got up and he just kept sticping them inter I was his best yearsince his last season at Eviton wher. I think Irun remembers him just puttingeverything in the back of that he was onabsolute flames, so pretty good fon good for him. To behonest, I think he's a pretty good black, so happy ar yeah. I love Licoqueated when all the man Chesta, you know a o fans for, like you know, trying tokill hem and stuff like this Um. Also another indicator fohim. I liked thatarm. Some of his crative numbers at went up. I capases went from s en ero point, sevento one point: Five, which: U Sai, nonly Isy scoring moree all say just moreinvolved. You like to see good Aboti trikoffcould avebout a couple more tan to assist. I think it helped it the twopartner h. what's it called the two strikerformation that Theyr playd with Matar,...

I think help iscrativity diver startandanat yeah. This is a strange one, butit'slaan. I want to mention him so on the base. I said it was a freesigning: U, MEA thirty, eight, so he's not going to set up the club oranything, but he came in after they sold piontecto bell in Um, so it dishalf a season fiftee an gold involvements in sixteen starts it'sfrom free transfer. I think anyone real Atin hot, I'm sure hes on the sillywages but um four men in the matches out ofhissixteen starts four point: Four arals one which would happen like inthe top ten in the league. Three Point: Seven shots a Gan one point: Four Kpasses so Um, just real oil ran performar for Milan,actually showed that he still candoit it a high level. I mean yeah freetransfer. I know this white is involled, but I think that's a pretty smaltsodting from the L, a galaxy came from Lagao that inside but um andthen another one from Milan. I think they wee pretty smart with thatrbusiness. I know that I said BIONTEC was disappointing, but MTEOHINANDEStwenty meal from Madrid- I actually didn't- realize he was from Madrid, buthe was out onlone, Im Jus, so sha that I thought so shal that actually ownedhim, but Midrid Arndon twenty two year old, leftback Um. He had nine Gol involvements in thirtytwo starts M. He had three men and the matches he had one point: Five shots agame from fullback, which is pretty impressive, three tackles andinterceptions a game. One Point: Five clearances, one point: Seven dribblesone point: Three K passes so just a pretty solid player all round. Nothingreally stands out, just well balanced NGO involvement. So t that is prettysilly. I don't know if it was taking pens and something there, but pettyoutrageous, but yeah the defensive DM, an the cractivity numbers, they're,just very well balance, which is what you like to sae in a fool back so he'salso Soni thought was weth entioning and then theres a couple of guys online.Actually, I'm noot going to go into the stats, but Musa barrer out toAtalandabornam law season. I think in the Olf Season: U and he went out olonesummer, he killed it. He was like in the top fifteen on who score rating soItud be interesting to see if Adelane, to bring him back and start him RajeNayingelen online F to ca calary from INTA. Ithink Orrama, I don't Eve. Remember where ht was at any more. He moved alaw Um. He plied really well in Thi Sason and then euventis actually biltthis bloke for about thirty five millions, an twenty twenty year old,Winga, Dejann Kulasevsky, and so it was at Palmand, they bored him, and then hewent back on lar and he smashed it. Um Yeah. He was in like the he was rightup there and who's school writing in a lot of different starts, so heis somone,who could be an exciting signing for Ebay, playis Yo should get a move wh.Anyone you want to mention here. I'Vecong with I think it'sdominicobarade Yeah I've gone himyeah he's just a consst he's been consistintactually over the last few seasons just always been good for Isat Sasswaller. Ithink it is fourteen gols tennis, SIS, five men of the matches, four shots pergame. Two tea passes two point: One fous one and one tackle and one interceptionas well Pononis ithink. He just does a bit of everything and I think if youcompare him to, he had a better Hoh Scor wrating than to Bale, and I thinkeveryone Associas to Bor with Beig this young, like player, everyone thinkshe's like cut this uge potential he's already twenty six years old, sameageas, paroety igets that baby face, though of Debo that that fools everyone,but he's getting up there in age. I think so, both of them Twenty Five R,twenty six years old, Um and I think thy'Rthey're about to enterthe prime their primes. I think if varity gets to move and and and kicksoff pretty well, he could become one of that, like a shining light for a prettygood sigd. So hopefully, for his sake, he he gets to show his skills on a abit of a biger platform. 'cause, I think he's T he's, got pretty goodpotential I think, to buy. I ended up winning the player of the year in Seria,withe ive even mentioned it with eleven gols eleven gall, six O Sis, I'm notreally copinut but Gerr Isse Tero has been absolutely and Louis ABBETTA andolder boys. All the boys that we've mentioned havebeen doged yeah, Baradi J S, as you said, he's just a spocy playel. I firstat first it was introduced to Boraty, I think, during like Yeari at school. Ithink he might have be a football manager. Actually he was always a bitof like a wonder. Kid t swallow like I think at that point he was like twentyor something really exciting. So I can't believe he' still swallow O. Iknow he's a club, Legend and stuff that come up at e, you'll you'll regret itonce you retire. I have t three years...

...or something an a good club see out howwell you can do so. Yeah Rogere go de Paul as well atsomeone else, football daily love him as well. Twenty six year old can fromUdanesi just a work, corse thirteen GOL involvements, ind thirty, three eightmen in the matches. Two and a half shots a game, two point: Seven Tucklesand Interceptions two point: Three K passes three point: six long balls, onepoint: Six Crosses, which I think that's like the most in league. OnePoint: six, that's a crap ton and one point: Eight dribble! So all round jet a lot of defense, ane work for fairlyattacking midfieldall, and he is once again twenty six. So He's getting tothat point where if he doesn't go now, he's never going to go so um. Someoneshould stap him up. He Dis me e ODS hegees Gmen to et gym and clumpFOB because it would be smat sowing so he's getting hepvily linked to Um tolaids. Actually, right now, don't Wan to pay OFF THIRTY ONE MILION POR! Oh,they got told that they want thirty, one million O for apparently th. They couldn'tum ththey're, struggling to negotiate for Ben Raman Penrama and that moved ontoto look at Tepol, which would be te. Lord O get Azy Woul Thin Y. I don'tthink it'll be much at all like paobably Thaon thirty one millionpounds from which is quite a lot fir. Twince O, yet that's a it don. Let himgo Wyea Oo. Well, then, I can like Peblo Aninda he's pretty old. Now Um. Ican't remember who else there attacking plays. I watched them a couple of timeslate lost season, but yeah that'll be interesting to see. If that happens,canwe I think Nis to m it frustrates me a little bit like I know I t I say itfrustrates o when good players go to big clubs a and sit on the bench, butthink these guys could definitely take a step up the ladder and Um go dominatesomewhere a little bit better, even if it searchd it still in Italy m. So Iwant to say that and then Musa Barrer I mentioned him before. If avalantercan't start him, I wanted to move 'cause. He is twenty one he's a wingerlooks really exciting. So if he's going to go out and learn again,I want adalantages to get rid of him on else Hav, the juicy boy so um yeah,that's that's also anyway Um. It was a good little chate, coternquate a lot of stufts M. I'm sure there was a bit e lag if you've got to thispoint, so apologies for that have gon heaverywhere, Um yeah heavy laggd. You stand a fathagain there, so no need to wrap up much. Really. We've talked long enough. Sothanks for listening, really prtiate.
