Welcome back everyone, this episode,twenty eight of Goat top o e Hostal, and this past week end. We had a lot ofimportant matches. We had the CHAMIS final yeah. We had Manchester Citymaking their first USO final appearance in their history. They faced Chelsea.Well, this we saw Chelsea's side winning one zero. With a goal fromMason out I mean a forty two Shirley Quevo the option: participle pepper theOl Abro. Do you agree with me or what do you think of the like? I didn'texpect. I had actually L I had thought masage city was going to win. I justthought there squad that other squad was just too good. Just in all areas of the field, Ithought they were just had a better team, and I mean we saw how both teamsstarted. Both teams started with three people in the bag. Chelsea, I feel like they had a lotmore opportunities than I expected, especially in the first half. They wereattacking a lot more than Mechester city was, and I don't know I feel like I didn't- expect Havers, either to toscore to score, because he hasn't been really consistent throughout the wholeseason. He hasn't been playing as many games as would expect them to, and Imean I feel like just Chelsea: Do they have Conte got this just the best box,the box Mfield er, we've seen, I feel like in a long time current best midfilm in the world. No, no doubt O, but like it's not even close a especiallyhe got mad of the match for this game. He got mad and a match for both legsagainst from Madrid. To that's crazy, I mean he definitely and look look if youlook at who he faced off and those in the final and the semi finals. He wentup against Cross Casimiro Morich, and this final he went up against like thebrone. GUUA was one of the better man city players in this past year, alsoagainst Silva and Phil Fordin, whose shows a promising future firm Y. A Imean I just feel like. I don't know I feel, like the people who started, Ifeel like he war. He, I just planned a team like badly, I feel like sort. Heshould have started with, like a nine...

...either got be isis or wedder, because Ifeel like it kind of like there was no point of having to Brown her up there,or sometimes even full Foldin was filling up that spot. I feel like hejust wasted a half doing that, especially in then Tebron ended upgetting injured in the second half. So I feel, like you just wasted a wholegame, and then it wasn't to the injury that he made that that sub. Yes, that'sbecause you 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 inthe semi finals, but he started. You know in this finaland that's thing yeah, because that's the thing to I pointed out how likerosary or for Nandina, have also started every single game for Mas City,except for this one either or of them m. But I just feel like, especially sincehe lost twice in a road of Chelsea, I feel like he just wanted to switch hisline up up, but it just didn't ended up working because even Chelsea I feel,like probably Warner wonder, probably was the one who shouldn't have beenyeah. I don't know what this is. I don't want to be that person also tolike kind of destroy his confidence, because I mean he's a good player to me,but sometimes when we most need him he's just not there. We saw a miss acouple of shots. I feel like police going in from was a great saisoning.Chiwa would do it was doing really well and he almost core yeah. So I feel likehe couldn't. That was just a man to take out. There was nobody else I feellike politic could have gone in for yeah and then reach James also started.He he didn't start the Games in the semi finals. So I mean both coachesmade like their technical changes for this game, but you know it word. Itworked out better for chose than it did for Man City, but I feel like to cell.I feel, like the tension, be probably the person who should really be gettingmost of the credit, especially since he took over from Lampard who coast a fewchemins O Games. I don't know just is tactics like I don't know. If you guysnotice in the game, the center backs that Tocal put up, they would go up tothe mid food and they re cover space in the midfield too, so they were made.Players from Mata city either go through wide because there was no roomin the middle, so they covered it...

...perfectly. I don't know if you guys,maybe not have noticed that, but I don't know Messager City would alsothey would pass a lot, but they wouldn't go anywhere no yeah and then,like you, said about their defense and out technically like they wereperfectly set up. My to show. I think I read something where it was like. Ibelieve in like the knockout rounds. That's the team that s received a likethe least amount of goals with. I think the only the only conceited four goalsand all 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 Lamport at the end of the match, or he said that. But he praises- and you know, Lamport deserves credit for you knowhave have given this Chelsey team there that sort of winning mentality andalways pushing forward. But do you think that he just said that happensGonta just to give him credit, obviously, because he lam part hadsomething to do with it and then, since he coach in that same champion, thatthey want. So it's probably just some former respect of like showing that Ohyeah lampard had this team before I did he's also a member of this winning teambecause I'm pretty sure he's gonna get a metal because a technicallytechnically coached well, not think the group stage yeah. So I mean problems tohim. Is Chelsea's first champs since when drool for that winning penaltyagainst Ver Munis twelve, so it's proply Chelse I mean I didn't expect onthe wind, but soccer is not about whoever deserves a more just. Whoeverends up scoring the goal: Yeah unfortunate for Guna Wette, who washoping to leave Man City with a champions. I trophy that he hadpromised and I he said I'm not leaving men sitting until I went a UC had hisbest chance, but I mean he also didn't get much plane time in this final,which is something a lot of people were criticizing to, especially that his ownbrother, I o other son brother tweeted out saying that what the alas neverliked a well on, then he ended up beleving these we. So I don't know-maybe that's true. Maybe I what I did till it to his brother, because he? Whywould he tweet that when no...

...evidence behind it, I'm pretty surethere's something there? And I mean a player of that status at a club likethat, you know who's always been. Who is their legend? Imagine not startingor getting like you know from a road that he had a couple seasons ago tobeing the minute to like bench like it was basically second string, sometimeseven third stream. I mean I feel like there probably was something therecoming off that injury too, for a long time kind of hurt him too, but I meanChelsea Chelsea, just as bet that transfer window never would havethought you know. I mean it Gettie, making like jokes of a after thattransl window they had in the summer where they signed, like Habert Warnerat the Wilson. That's what we were like, oh down like their, but I his eyes werelike then, as only going to be hell a raw, but then we didn't expect them towin a Chamonsi that quickly. Now, because I mean I had you know, we werelooking our favorites earlier and you know when Chapas about to start. Youknow we have people like PG who made the final buyer who was defendingchampions, liberal pool and men city. You know those are the the favorites towin it on. I don't think nobody really thought. Chelsea would have gone thatway. Well, I mean maybe because my part was also the coach at that time, but Imean two shows a will turn around pretty quickly and you know brown theirfirst cline ton, twelve and she to do chattel to because he lost the lastfinal. We e IGOMEE. They decided to reunite Chelsey and ended up win. Yes,so I mean another final that we had today was criss wood versus SantosChris as Sun, getting their first title in twenty three years. That last titleam one thousand nine hundred and ninety seven, and I mean twenty three years since he last titleman I of out of all the Times that they play the final since then they finallyget their ninth title today and that's crazy to especially prompts to Wanderinknows who I criticized as a selection for culture, because I so you ended upo just leading the team knowing where...

...to put players. Although off point outto in this game, I don't really like how we set up his team for the first time Ifelt like they were playing a lot to like defensive. That's what they endedup scoring a goal to sontos ended up scoring a goal about that. A reallygood shot, a really good player too. So I feel like he just that was aconsequence of how gros stepped up in the first half, but I mean second halfI feel like they just turned things around, and it was just man aftertwenty three years. I feel like they. Just I just had to happen. I feel likeany other rival could have came was against Santos. So I feel like is oneof the weaker teams that they've played in against, like in the final yeah. I they had faced America, I meanthey also pay Santos. I think sat was Beta beaten a couple years ago, butlike that Santos was better than an obviously as your Santa that'ssomething they had was by little enches in their goal. I remember a lot of that.I was raw, but I mean a a twenty three years. Imagine it noteven twenty: It's like twenty three and a half. He was going to be twenty fourin December, so the last time, and then also wantingnow, so he was a captain of that. Chris is wilten that last one, the Tetonthousand nine hundred and ninety seven so he's the first coach to also win atitle as a coach and as a player for as a soldier. So that's also ely good,something he menace winning the tar crisis. His Dames Dad had a really goodto to run with Machuca. So we can't really that's true criticize them forthat, but I feel like they probably you know he probably wanted to do more forcresses, and I mean he had opportunity, but you know it just never neverhappened, but I mean that's insane, though his son, you know, I l beingable to do it. It's kind of that's a great family story right there, becauseI mean, especially since the season that caves had with forty one pointslike they did this. This had to be the year, but then that's something we'vealways had like of all the years. I've done really well, it's always been like.Oh, this is the year, especially the one where they lost the best, as forfour, where they were up for zero and they came back so I mean we like, eveneven till the end of the game, but we...

...were like we can't discount. You know,sent us out, because you know crisis who is known for just Christeane Line.I mean it was we I didn't really like it wasn't, really didn't really sink inuntil like the final whistle blew because I mean sal went up and I wasgetting meal flash back for a bin like do s, I o, but no I was like you wasjust too much like they guess to power is like all right. You got to win andthen that fighter that broke out at the end to but time tho he meant it thatalso man happened, like I feel, like the ref, also messed up. In that part,I feel like he should have never added that extra minute, because I he onlyadded it because of the injury that when they bumped corona, but it was ahead, that's not a real you're already given five minutes and I feel like it was. That was justgood enough right. There yeah, but I mean props of them. You knowcongratulations to crucis food, for you know winning a much deserved title hope.Maybe they don't have to wait another twenty two years and I just came we'llsee, but I mean sticking with Mexico. We hadMexico play a friendly against Iceland. Yesterday, in preparation for theirupcoming nations league match a guess so Tuday on Thursday, two one victory for Mexico when theywere trailing behind one zero, but I mean it wasn't really it wasn't theMexico we used to sing up until the Chuki was up then, and a catchit to Ifeel like that's when Mexico completely changed the game. What were your yourobservations? Throwing with that Mexico Squat Yeah? I feel like it just reallyjust showed what Mexico was capable of with the players. That should be on thefield, because you see the way the dynamic changed. The way the style ofplay changed when ector and I had to Kilano went in it was a whole differentteam, and we I mean even Iceland is on only had one shot on goal: a whole gameand their goal came through an own goal from, as on a woice was known,reflected, who's know its a score on goes, but I don't know it's just theline up. I don't know Henry Martin look kind of shaking there. A lot of peoplelife like a guy should be that also...

...show out. I should get the startingleft back from Mexico. Hortis sines has nothing to do with the next. I don'tknow why the fuck is even being called up and that's the thing I mean so Isaid I feel like he should still be the starting center back for Mexico and alot of people were praising Water Atl, but I don't know in my personalperspective, I feel like he pauses the game instead of more than what heshould a Festin. I mentioned that to you, I'm like they could be faster intheir transitioning, but I feel like they just slow it down. He paused thebottle. Out of that o just decide that I mean sometimes it's good to do. We'veseen a lot of world class players do that with the bodies o be slowed down,the guineas be paused and then people should open up move, but we havewingers like a tuna who's known for a spin. I mean a lines: Dude had one ofthe better games yesterday yeah, so you a lines hater, I feel like he playedone of his really like, I probably I don't know, probably top two games ofall time with the Mexican nation team like this is probably one of his bestgames ever Weinet with Mexico, because I don't know the way he was dribblinginside through the middle through the side really part trying to participatein every single play, and then he earned he earned a spot because Eddie go tiaras got hurt. So now theold line is going to take a spot for the nation's league. So that's alsoreally important for him to be able to participate with these players just sothey get used to playing with each other, especially if the CATION fitenough to play against cosecants day for the semi final, Oh yeah, I know.Surely I feel like that's. Why also pick of people didn't see any minutesyesterday against Iceland, but I mean you think that Gouty, as actually heardthey probably just said that just a fun in the aveline. I know I mean he didn'talso get minutes either with the Otis, and I mean he's coming off of reallylong season too, but I don't know I feel like addice really, especially because hedidn't get that many like full matches. I feel like he justI don't know, because I I feel like even right now. That position is only agoing to be occupied between either as...

...on Albes and Louis Roma, who just wonthe title, because he wasn't there because I mean obviously e's doing thefinal yeah. So I feel like it's just a between them to I feel like adiquate,isn't even in the conversation any more. So I don't. I still think, though, fora striker. You know my team was kind of had a exciting game, but I mean Ifrakes or the tees and the fill it they struggle with, because they had noother auction. They didn't have polito's, believe it wasn't even on thebench and the whole point is is to have. How are you going to have only one nine? I, like you, no number nines on thebench unless choke was played number nine for Napoli in the past and as playnight for Mexico too, but I mean he has just doesn't. He is a function wellwith Mexico, so that was my only thing just call upchary to at least have him on the bench or how I Otero start of wonene markingright now, especially after this performance, because just cha thosepresents you know who he is what he's as experience. You know like that thatsort greatly- and I mean even if he doesn't score goaling- he's alwaysgoing to have all the attention by the defenders on her and gives other peopleopportunity. I feel like a a Martin, doesn't really give that to the offenseyou know being able to Hamar, but I mean I don't know that's that asdecisions, but I mean they face Cotai in the nations on Thursday. Thatalso sees us who lost today. I as list yeah, I mean I feel like Reuben. NoRicardo roles he's also been a really good player. He scored the first goalfor Switzerland, five minutes after Sebastian scored- and I feel like Idon't know- I don't know- I don't think they got exposed, but it just kind ofshows a level of play in Europe compared to to a face. But to thestandard of that this US team is like category as because I don't know they had all thestarters. Basically, the only one that was missing was pollitick. PULLACK andTyler. Adams are probably the only two starters that I would put in that teamother than probably Unis Move O. I start the game. Is it, but I mean Horvat is a reallygood goal. He got the man of the match...

...for the US national team and he alsoplays in Europe. So I mean bitteen Horrebat or sack stuff, and Ifeel like that really doesn't make a difference to me. I feel, like Sir Ginodes just had a really bad game. Andrew Yelin is coming off all also a longinjury gus so minutes in Wenson. Mc kity played the whole gameBrendan Arrison. Also, a really good player played the whole game. JovanniRena started timothy were who just won the Frenchleague with Lil. He also went in as a sub, so I feel like it's just all. Theplayers participated that should have, except for politic Tyler Adams M andyou're, losing to Switzerland that just kind of shows how there still need acouple more steps to reach that level that everybody's expected to play ityeah, and then I mentioned that earlier another podcast where there were youknow, people were kind of saying that all this. This is the team that canlead us, but I mean we also mentioned the in the teams that they face. Youknow they've paced, conceat teams like Jamaica, Kozari home who not at the same level as European teams,and it showed today when they played Switzerland, and you know they lostthose who played Wales earlier and they tied it. So it wasn't a wind, so I meanthey haven't really beaten the team with that European level like Mexicohas when they be Netherlands, you know and like that you know I meanthey haven't, showed it as a team. Yet so I mean I fee like it's too early toeven say that they're better than Mexico. I know people are getting aheadof themselves and saying that, but I mean I still see Mexico is, I'm not be.I mean Yeah Mexican, but I'm not being biased. I mean it's facts like I feellike this. Mexico team is still better than the champion than the you knowAmerican team, even though they have a champions in winter and Polia. You knowmid filler place for Juventus in MC Kinney. You know what I mean. Sozonthas a really good team. I kind of I don't know if I expected to pass intheir group for the heroes they're going to have Italy, Turkey and willsin their group for the euros. So I don't know- maybe I feel like Italy isprobably going to win that group and then it's going to be either betweenthem or wells to come out to the next round. Hey, but I mean we're going tohave an action pack summer this year...

...with Euros, Copa, Copoeia who's,looking for a new host country now that they ruled that Argentina yeah. I kindof hope I'm hoping it's in the US, because there's no other country,that's going to have just the conditions to play, and- and I meanthey're- also going to look for that financial standpoint where they can.You know let fans in and get some revenue in. So I mean us was, I feel,like that's, that's probably going to be one of the main options in on lookinto, and they better think of it, quick as it's hardly coming up twoweeks out O weeks out yeah, I don't know I feel like Comebo just also theydon't know how to really organize stuff. Like then, I don't know hopefullydoesn't affect outcome of the tournament. You know I feel like it'sstill going to be good to make sure the like share and subscribe an we'll seeall next time.
