Welcome back everyone. This is episode twenty eight of Goat Talk. I'm your host, a Lonzo, and this past week and we had a lot of important matches. We had the Champions League final. Yeah, we had Manchester City making their first UCO final appearance in their history. They faced Chelsea. Well, this we saw Chelsea side winning one zero with a goal from Mason Mount. I mean a forty two. Surely a Quilo this UPRANTNIP, but I to keep the pepper, the old that. Bro. Do you agree with me or what do you think of it? Like I didn't expect I had actually well, I had thought matchester city was going to win. I just thought their squad, that's the other squad, was just too good. HMM, just in all areas of the field. I thought they were just had a better team. And I mean we saw how both teams started. Both teams started with three people in the back. Chelsea, I feel like they had a lot more opportunities than I expected, especially in the first half. They were attacking a lot more than Manchester City was. And I don't know, I feel like I didn't expect have vers either to score, to score, because he hasn't been really consistent throughout the whole season. He hasn't been playing as many games as would expect them to. And I mean I feel like just Chelsea do they have Conte got. This is just the best box the box midfielder we've seen, I feel like, in a long time. Current best midfield in the world. No, no doubt a but like it's not even close's especially he got man of the match for this game. He got mad in the match for both legs against Real Madrid. To that's crazy. I mean, he definitely and look, look, if you look at who he faced off in those in the final, in the semi finals he went up against cross because he made him Reich, and this final he went up against like the Broune Gundu, gun was one of the better man city players in this past year. Also, again, Silva and Phil fold in, whose shows a promise seeing future firm. I mean, I just feel like, I don't know, I feel like the people who started, I feel like he was, are the old I just planned a team like badly. I feel like he started, he should have started with like a nine. Either got been his US or Weddo, because I feel like you...

...kind of like there was no point of having to Bruin up there. Sometimes even feel footing was filling up that spot. I feel like he just wasted a half doing that, especially, and then the Bruin ended up getting injured in the second half. So I feel like you just wasted a whole game. And then it wasn't soil the injury that he made. That that's UB yeah, that's because he probably had to. And I mean the another shocker for me in the lineup was starting sterling, who I mean, who didn't start in both legs in the in the semi finals, but he started, you know, in this final lasting yeah, that's the thing too. I pointed out how, like Roddy or for Narine, you have also started every single game for Matt City except for this one, either or of them. HMM. But I just feel like, especially since he lost twice in a road of Chelsea, I feel like he just wanted to switch his lineup up, but it just didn't ended up working because even Chelsea, I feel like probably Warner weren't probably was the one who shouldn't have been. Yeah, I don't know, man, is this I don't want to be that person also to like kind of destroy his confidence because, I mean he's a good player to me, but sometimes when the most need him, he's just not there. We saw a miss a couple of shots. I feel like Pulicic going in F him was a great sub, especially since chill, well, would do it was doing really well. Any Oh will score. Yeah, so I feel like he couldn't. That was just the man to take out. There was nobody else. I feel like policy could have gone in for yeah, and then Ryes James also started. He hit. He didn't start any the games in the semi finals. So I mean both coaches made like their technical changes for this game, but you know, it worked. It worked out better for Chelsea than it did for men city. But I feel like Du Chel, I feel like the church, would be probably the person who should really be getting most of the credit, especially since he took over from Lampard, who coached a few chamisy games. I don't know, just his tactics, like, I don't know if you guys noticed in the game the center backs that too chill put up. They would go up to the midfield and they would cover space in the midfield to so they would make players from master city either go through wide because there was no room in the middle, so they covered it perfectly. I don't know if you guys maybe not have...

...noticed that, but I don't know. Messr city would also. They would pass a lot, but they wouldn't go anywhere. Yeah, and then, like you said about their defense and how technically like they were perfectly set out by too show. I think I read something where I was like, I believe it is like the knockout rounds. That's the team that's receives a like least amount of goals with, I think the only, the only conceded four goals and I'll knockout games and I think the next second, second behind them was like maybe, I think, almost double digits. But I mean that's all credit to show. But I mean he also credited lampard at the end of the match where he said that. But he praises and you know, Lampard deserves credit for you know, have given this Chelsie team. They're that sort of winning mentality and always pushing forward. But do you think that he just said that? He said I think they just to give him credit, obviously because he lampard, had something to do with it and it since he coached in that same champigue they want. So it was probably just some formal respect of like showing that. Oh Yeah, Lampard had this team before I did and he's also a member of this winning team, because I'm pretty sure he's gonna get a medal, because any technically aage coach we'll not thinking that the group stage. Yeah, so I mean props to him. Is Chelsea's first champions eque since when Droug while scored that winning penalty against Beer Munich twelve. So it's probabs to the Chelsea. I mean, I didn't expect them the win, but soccer is not about whoever deserves and Moress, whoever ends up going the goal. Yeah, unfortunate for Gouin a Waddow, who was hoping to leave Man City with a Champions League, hope that he had promised. Now he said I'm not leaving men city until I want to usecl had his best chance, but I mean he also didn't get much playing time in this final, which is something a lot of people were criticizing to especially that his own brothers, one a brother, no brother, tweetered out saying that one of the allies never liked a wet on. Then he ended up letally sweet. So I don't know, maybe that's true. Maybe I want to do tell that to his brother, because, hey, why would he tweet that when no evidence behind it? I'm pretty sure there's something there. And...

I mean a player of that status a club like that, you know who's always been, who is their legend. Imagine not starting or getting, like you know, from a role that he had a couple seasons ago, to of being diminished to like bench, almost second. It was basically second string, sometimes even third string. I mean I feel like there's probably was something there. Coming off the injury to for a long time kind of hurt him too. But I mean Chelsea, Chelsea's just it's been that transfer window you never would have thought. You know, I'm not getting. I'm really were making like jokes of it after that chapter window they had in the summer will they signed like hobarts Werner at the will sealed. But I think that's when we were like, oh, damn, like they're body. His eyes were like then that's when they're gonna be hello raw. But then we didn't expect them to win a champizague that quickly. Not because I mean I had, you know, we're looking our favorites earlier in the you know, when Chapanzi was about to start. You know, we have people like PSG, who made the final, Byron, who is with the defending champions Liverpool and men city. You know, those are the favorites to win it on I don't think nobody really thought Chelsea would have gone that way. Well, I mean maybe because Lam part was also the coach at that time. But I mean two shows able turn around pretty quickly. And you know, brow on their first two seal since two thousand and twelve. And shout out to the Chati to because he lost the last final, which is gee so the Ivo man. So this kind of like they decided to reunite and Chelsea and ended up winning. Yes, so, I mean another final that we had today was crusis suled versus Anthos. Creus assumed getting their first title in twenty three years. That last title came in one thousand nine hundred and ninety seven, and I mean twenty three years since their last title. Man, out of out of all the Times that they play the finals since then, they finally get their ninth title today, and that's crazy too, especially props the quandre knows who I criticized as a selection for coach for cusass. Would he ended up herold is, leading the team, knowing where to put players, although I'll...

...point out to and this game, I didn't really like how we set up lot to like defensive, and that's what they ended up scoring a goal to. The SANTONS ended up scoring the goal about this a really good shot, a really good player too. So I feel like he just that was a consequence of how cuse, who stepped up in the first half, but I mean second half, I feel like they just turn things around and it was just man, after twenty three years, I feel like they just they just had a happen. I feel like any other rival, it could have came was against Santos, who I feel like is one of the weaker teams that they've played in against, like in the final. Yeah, because they feed, they had faced a medicap. I mean they also big Santos, I think Sato's Beata Beata a couple years ago, but like that, San Tos was better than this and obviously, yes, you're Santos. That's too said. They had those by little centsies in their goal. I remember a lot of that's why it was raw. But I mean, I don't know, Gosoul, that's twoenty three years. Imagine, it's not even twenty. It's like twenty three and a half. It was going to be twenty four in December since last time and then also wandering. Know. So he was a captain of that crussool team that last won the tit one thousand nine hundred ninety seven. So He's the first coach to also win a title as a coach and as a player who was a stool so that's also really good something. He menace winning the title Cruisi Sud before. Will that better here, but I'm his dad had a really good ty to run with my Chookas. So we can't really, that's true, criticize them for that, but I feel like they probably, you know, he probably wanted to do more for crisssol and then, mean, he had the opportunity but, you know, it just never never happened. What I mean that's insane, though his son, you know, it would being able to do it. kind of that's a great family story right there, because, I mean, especially since the season, that could have Sul had with forty one points like they do this this had to be the year. But then that's something we've always said, like of all the years have done really well, it's always been like, oh, this is years. Whe's the one where they lost the best mass for for where they were up for zero and they came back. So, I...

...mean we like even even till the end of the game, but we were like we're we can't just count out, you know, Santos out, because you know, crusis was known for just crusassity, underline. I mean it was it we I didn't really like it wasn't really didn't really sink in until like the final whistle blue, because, I mean, dude, I said Hello, went up and I was getting meals flashbacks for Avaim, like dude, they got but now, like you, just too much like they guess to a plow Wer, saying all right, you gotta Win, and then that fight that that broke out at the end to it's not he men is. That also meant that happened. Like I feel like the REF also messed up, and that part I feel like he should have never added that extra minute, because he only added it because of the injury that when they bumped the corona, but it was ahead of that's not a reason. Like you're already even five minutes and I feel like it was. That was just good enough right there. Yeah, but I mean props to them, you know, congratulations to crusoe food for, you know, winning a much deserved title. Hope maybe they don't have to wait another twenty three years, and I'm just king. We'll see. But I mean, sticking with Mexico, we had Mexico play a friendly against Iceland yesterday in preparation for their upcoming nations league match against so stark on Thursday. To one victory for Mexico when they were trailing behind one zero. But I mean it wasn't really it wasn't the Mexico were used to seeing up until too Chuki was' uped in and AC chalact it too. I feel like that's when Mexico completely changed the game. What were your your observations throwing with that Mexico squad it? Yeah, I feel like it's just really just showed what Mexico was capable of with the players that should be on the field, because you see the way the dynamic change, the way the style of play change. When actor did, I had Chokilasano went in. It was a whole different team. And we, I mean even Iceland. I se only had one shot on goal the whole game and their goal came through an own goal from as when I would who's known deflective, who's? No, it's to score a goals, but I don't know. It's just the lineup. I don't know. Henry Martin, the kind of shaking. There a lot of people who like that. Guys, I feel...

...like a yeah, I should be that. Also, Short at Taga should be the starting left back from Mexico. Hard his UNs has nothing to do with the next. I don't know why the fuck is even being called, and that's the thing I mean. So I said, though, I feel like he should still be the starting center back for Mexico, and a lot of people were praising more at but I don't know. In my personal perspective, I feel like he pauses the game instead of more than what he should fashion and I mentioned that to you. I'm like they could be faster in their transitioning, but I feel like they just slow it down and pause the battles out of all just to sites stuff. I mean sometimes it's good to do we've seen a lot of world class players do that with then the bodies to be slowed down, the Gainas to be paused and then people should open up move. But I mean when you have wingers like on tuna, who's known for his speed, and I mean age lines is due, how do one of the better games yesterday. Yeah, so you you are lenas hater. I feel like he played one of his really like I'll probably I don't know, probably top two games of all time with the Mexico national team. Like this is probably one of his best games ever. Would met with Mexico, because I don't know, the way he was driveling inside, through the middle, through the side, really part trying to participate in every single play. And then he heard here in the spot because Eddie Goodie has got hurt. So now the old line is going to take a spot for the nation's league. So that's also really important for him to be able to participate with these players, just so they get used to play with each other, especially if they cutito isn't fit enough to play against Costa Rica on Thursday for the semi final. Oh Yeah, I know, surely I feel like that's why also take Athto didn't see any minutes yesterday against Iceland. But I mean, you think that goody is actually hurt? They probably just said that. Just a fun and day of Lins. And No, I mean he didn't also get minutes either with the ores, and I mean he's coming off a really long season two. But I don't know, I feel like Eddie good theatas isn't really especially because he didn't get that many like full matches. I feel like he just I don't know, because I feel like even right now that position it's only a going to be occupied to be between either Atsnaldus and Louise...

Romo, who just won the title with because I so he wasn't there because, I mean, obviously he's playing the final. Yeah, so I feel like it's just it between them to I feel like Eddie good theatas isn't even in the conversation anymore. So I don't know. I still think though, for a striker, you know, my thingle kind of had a siling game, but I mean, if all he mendis or Cheach, I wasn't. I feel like they struggle with because they had no other option. They didn't have Bullilo. Bulido wasn't even on the bench, and the whole point is is to have how are you going to have only one nine? I like, you have no number nine on the bench, unless Chuki, who's played number nine for Napuli in the past and was playing nine for Mexico, to but I mean he has it, doesn't he is a function will with Mexico. So that's my only thing. Just call ups Charny to at least have him on the bench, or have probably started over Henry Martin right now, especially after this performance, because just to show those presents you know who he is, what he's experienced, you know. Like that. That starts greatly, and I mean even if he doesn't score goals and he's always going to have all the attention by the defenders on them, it gives other people opportunity. I feel like I need might being doesn't really give that to the offense, you know, being able to pull out of Marca. You want to catch each Aito, but I mean I don't know that's that does decisions. But I mean they face Costa Rica in the nation's seage on Thursday. That also sees USA, who lost today. I guess listen. Yeah, I mean I feel like a rumor. Not Ricardo Rodriguez. He's also been a really good player. He scored the first goal for Switzerland five minutes after Sebastian scored, and I feel like, I don't know, I don't know if I don't think they got exposed, but it just kind of shows a level of play in Europe compared to hounds a face, but to the standard of that, this US team is like categorize as because I don't know they had all the stories. Basically the only one that was missing was pull a sick pullstic and Tyler Adams probably the only two starters that I would put in that team, other than Probably Unite Musso hose. I start the game. Is that? But I mean horrorbout is a really good goal. He got the...

...man of the match for the US national team and he also plays in Europe. So I mean miteen horror as exact stuff, and I feel like that really doesn't make a difference to me. I feel like Sogeno desk just had a really bad game. Dander yet len's coming off. I'll also a long injury. Got Some minutes in Weston. Mckinney played the whole game. Brendan Harrison, also really good player, played the whole game. Jovanniy Dana started, Timothy Ware, who just won the French league with Lee. He also went in as a sub. So I feel like it's just all the players participated that should have, except for Pussy Tyler Adams, and you're losing the Switzerland. That just kind of shows how there's only a couple more steps to reach that level that everybody's expected to play at. Yeah, and then I mentioned that earlier another podcast where they were you know, people were kind of saying that all this this is a team that can lead us. But I mean we also mentioned the team that teams that they face. You know, they've paced Conqua Cock teams like Jamaica, Costa Rica, for me, who not at the same level as European teams. And it showed today when they played Switzerland and, you know, they lost, those who played Wales earlier and they tied, so it wasn't a win. So I mean they haven't really beaten a team with that European level like Mexico has when they beat Netherlands, you know, like that. You know. I mean they haven't showed it as a team yet. So I mean I feel like it's too early to even say that they're better than Mexico. I don't people are getting ahead of themselves and saying that, but I mean I still see Mexicos. I'm be I mean, yeah, Mexican, but I'm not being biased. I mean it's facts. Like I feel like this Mexico team is still better than the champion, than the, you know, American team, even though they have a champion League winner, Pullis Whitch, you know, a midfielder place for Juventas, a mckinney. You know what I mean. Which one has a really good team? I kind of I don't know if I expect them to pass in their group for the euros. Are they're going to have Italy, Turkey and wills in their group for the euros. So I don't know. Maybe I feel like Italy is probably going to win that group and then it's going to be either between them or wills to come out to the next round. Hey, by me, we're going to have an action pack summer this year with Euros. Cope, all at all COPEA Medica, who's looking...

...for a new host country now that they've ruled out Argentina. Yeah, I kind of hope. I'm hoping it's in the US because there's no other country that's gonna have just the conditions to play and, and I mean they're also going to look for that financial SYS standpoint where they can, you know, let fans in and get some revenue in. So, I mean, USA was I feel like that's that's probably going to be one of the main options I going to look into, and they better think of a quick is. It's already coming up two weeks out of weeks out. Yeah, I don't know, I feel like, oh my bol just also they don't know how to really organize stuff like that and I don't know, hopefully doesn't affect outcome of the tournament. You know, I feel like it's still going to be good. Make sure to like, share and subscribe. We'll see all next time.
