Say Hello, deck, alload that. Can we stopped that? Sorry, that's a stay. Also joined by the second co host, Connor. Say Hello Connor. Hey, guys, just before we start this week's Epi sold the team here at ground show. Want to say a massive thank you to everybody who support the podcast. I'll first episode went down brilliantly and we've received some fantastic reviews. All we ask is that, if you do enjoy the PODCAST, come follow us on twitter at the ground share and share the podcast for your mates, you work colleagues, your family, because every best support, especially at this stage, is amazing and we are truly thankful. Right, let's let's kick things off a bough. They are. Yeah, I was looking forward to going to the Blackpool game this week and then got reminded that it was a certain someone's birthday, so I couldn't go. So I was a bit gutting because I got a picked into that thousand to go for the test game but couldn't. Couldn't make it's that's a bit. And now you in bought. What can you do when you say you were picked in the thousand? That's that's what Paul's entire thumbase, isn't it? So I wouldn't been hard. We have average attendance of around Ninezero, which is well above average. Fully Guan, I'll have you know what about. If you average out over the last five years, you will five years, when staying them, see well exactly and that that's it. That's a good thing, because we wouldn't have what we have now if we do what we did over the last five years. It's gay. Look, it's getting all defensive or defensive. All right, enough about black pool. Let enough that pot pool. Go on, Connor, Oh you, you're right me. Yeah, I'm not so bad at all in watching a plenty of forty this week. Enjoyed it. On Saturday I watched three games back to that, one after the other, which for me that's that's heavy going, and then watch some of the pool game on the Sunday. So yeah, I'm sad to say none of them will lead to you games, considering that's my speciality as well. So there you go. I'll watch the game on Friday. It was so boring at off. Turned off, start bugging. Finish Vere to day COMENTRY, if you are yeah, tont me off my beat that as well. The say was a coupun killer on it a right, let's get on with it. We're starting with a championship again. First thing I want to mention trial crowds. I know it's kind of absolutely now considerable. Been told funds can't go back till for at least March. So entire season, ty season, be a cales closed doors. What's your opinions on that? Well, I mean it's fringing and fifteen quid down the shit, so in it for me. But poor are used to it at this point, aren't the really, funds will probably fit. The players will probably feel a bit more at home now. That's probably why even do shit. We like real these lot watching us. Everyone probably think so. EUSTON's took over again. I feel more for the funds of the championship sides and the ones of the low light lead to, especially because I imagine the ticket prices. People who've paid three hundred quid plus in the championship for season tickets. When I follow. Obviously the giving the funds tickets on. I fell lot to stream the games, but that's on the ten pound the game. And if you think about you watch, obviously what do you get? Twenty? It's twenty three Home Games, is it? Are Not giving it for all games? I thought they were giving...

...it for all games even a way. Yeah, but for what you season ticket would get you, because you only get home games on your real season ticket. So if you work out that way, so you're paying ten pounds a ticket for I follow. So I'd be two hundred and thirty quid. And if you've paid a fringe could ticket, you're not really getting your money back because obviously they are streaming for away games as well, but you have to pay for them. They're not covered by your season ticket or the little shy banks. I thought you gotten covered with the season ticket. Now the only home games are covered with your season ticket. So, for example, I've I've moved. I know was talked about league one again, but I've moved seats this year to move a bit closer to the middle and I sit just by the dug arts now. I'm paying free injured and fifteen pound and I won't be making it like you know what'll be making my money back through I follow streams whilst with quickly, quickly, just while we're talking about I follow Colchester. Obviously release that statement, did they? For anyone that's not clued in on this, Colchester, basically, basically, they've just said that Poland made more money off the off Colchester as haul game than Colchester made, which to me is mental and it just shows how shit the EFL is at the minute. So I bet you've got you listen to it. Let me listen to any FL podcast hole. We're saying. Oh yefl Shit. It's crazy, because wasn't wasn't ball and wasn't the bottling game, the one where, obviously it's one of the test games. So it colchester actually had their funds in as well, and Bolton still made more money out of it. Yeah, and it was a lot more. It's like double well, that's crazy. Why? What the reasons for it? Well, just because more people, boy, I follow through through, but more Bolton fans. Boy, I follow three bolt, three bowling, because obviously Bolton, with all all respects to colchester, ever more widely for world club. So really, what we should be doing? He's per I follow should be pulling the sort of funds per match and splitting them as it would have been split had the game been plays. I think the whole team should take. I think the home team should take all of all of the I follow revenue. That spot's good equal out across the season, wouldn't it? Yeah, well, you say that. You say that, but what if? What if the Bolton collegester reverse game fell on, you know, Easter Monday, on a bank holiday, Monday, dead, sunny and in Bolton? Well, yeah, but that's no different than if fans have been in the grounds. True, then again, it's going to be streamed, isn't it no different? So yeah, it's decent. Shout or split it as you would have the allocation. Listen, we don't have that much for with the EFL yet. We'll get that. We'll get that. He know, we know Essex Fa. We've got we know them now. We've got them on the from. Listen, they've been looking at my football manager results. The porching me. I can feel them tapping me up, saying come down to six with us to look for another present a connor. I'm going into a career of management right out out to Essex FA for being our probably most high profile follower. Here we got. We got a nice like of talks. What, though? Well, that's because the shit's the shit scared of us. With a big wether, big competition, now direct competitors. were talks both, but anywhere we're going to cat carry on, we're going to get to some of the results right. So I talked about it till you. The Friday night kick off, the Coventry three QPR to at listen. I started, I start. I won't watching it, I will listening to it, but at turn off, because it was so shit. There's no other word to describe it. It were an awful game up until the forty minute mark when I turned it off. And then three two. I'll absolutely all color more hair scored for Coventry, which is a good sign for them as pause, because he's...

...come from Aston Villa on a free good signing. Don't world's getting permanently following his loan from last season. But after Keprs win against forest, I was I was personally a little bit shocked by this. Well, you got to say I know everyone joy back Onida for first leg. Give Usick of a six leg accord gone human ours. That's a five roll ever see again, yeah, isn't it? Surely It's under written real that you never put a Friday night game when you're Aka. You don't put the Friday game on. I know it's not an at twelve o'clock kickoff and there's at waste the twelve. I fell for it, but I just thought, you know, conventry Yit, let's be that's literally what I thought. And then they don't even play their wrong games on. Yeah, there's that way. I said. I'm drews. What there? No, I was exactly the same as you. I was bored out. We had, yeah, most of the first half of them. It kicked off a bit didner, and it was. It was a good second half actually, and and, but you got to say watching it, commentary deserve the win. They really did. They were played really well. They were so resolute in defense because they were getting battered a bit points, but we weren't letting and keep your shots on at all. When they did break, they broke well. So played well actually. Can't knock it. I mean, yeah, it's you know, it's like I said, it was a bit of a shot to be folks. Keep your obviously played forest and I I personally think forest want it stronger teams at league and they look comfortable against forest. I think the one to know that. Yet I'm sure from to lose again. But this Coventry, then I just shows done it. This season is going to be a bit weird. It's going to be results everywhere. To be honestly, a bit worried about keep your and I mean not, but I absolutely care about keep your well, you know, will be for keeping our fans, because the squad isn't all that and they're having to look after the money a lot. I think they've got the second smallest budget after Coventry, ironically, in a the league. So they can't really go out and solve the problems. Have Gotten. They're not looking, not looking too far, but we'll see, as it can happen, you know, one game. It can always happen, carner. But yeah, right after that boring game, let's talk about one that wasn't so boring. The actually physically pains me to look at this score line for more than one reason. It's the Wickham score line. The Lost Five Neil to blot and now in this game, for me, I as an north and fan, because black but looked very strong, built really good. Adam Armstrong obviously got himself at trick. He's a fantastic he's a really good player. On showing you back sixteen last season and he's got four goals in two league games this season. So I reckon this season he's gonna have a big UN if you can stay away from injury, I think he's gonna have a good season with black them. Well, he was tipped for a tit for a premier league move, wasn't he as well before the season started, so he's a good player. Yeah, you might have done the right thing staying without Burnet, getting that bit more experience. Or you don't want to see it off a wick of D I mean all of us were. We're rooting for them. What was we were braced for the worst. But yeah, I mean Hucha made his first appearance. You came on from the bench, so that's a big gult. You know. Let me the five now, five build downloads for you, Shail. I'm sorry. I'm sorry, we could really trying to find some positives for you or you know, there's only so much magic I can where we said, Harry, didn't? We rock we said not only going to finish bottom, but we think it's going to be rock bottom. And they're not. They're not doing anything to change my mind at the moment. The still not rock button. The second from bottom, Sheffield fens. They are on eight point or chef. So yeah, that's it. We can fans look at the positive, look at the positives. To be fair, they only need one win to come out the relegations. Yeah, it's all. They be into game. Is that you...

...say, though? I mean, you know, seriousness, there's a good there's good reason for we compans to be a bit worried there, to be honest with you. I mean fair enough, there they were a man down from what sixty odd minutes. Think it was played half an hour with ten men, but look at the stats, the pass accuracy with only fifty four seven. So basically every other pass was going to Blackbird, and I mean you know, that's not good enough, even with ten men. That is not good enough. That's really, really poor. So I got a lot to worry about. Just sort of a quick point about his black being game as well. Young Lad tyree stole and scored, he did, and then a nice somersault to finish your off as well. If you were just saw, you saw that. It looks good. Done here. He's a full of confidence. It looks pretty really good. He's a he's an exdoor fan player. Well, that's it. He's an express the north and player got you got released in the Bollocks, right, and I'll tell you why it's bollocked, because that's exactly what north and needed, exactly what northen needed. We weren't willing to play him, so we fought off or team that were Oh, blabing, no, notice, a funny's awesome. You Got Scott. See Clare Rember. Oh, listen, right, he's every fit. Norfen needed this, lad. We've been crying out for a striker, right, crying for one, and he's he's scored for black them. We need goals because we ain't getting it off. No, don't worry, they've got brad pots. Don't worry. Hi, broad taughts, they love ex blacktop players. Don't know. We're moving on because I'm just going to get wild up looking at Siri's dolands down who, by the way, I have the ends come on the shore. Hey, so sorry, he's if you are listening him, say a lore. I won't get this angry right. Moving on, I feel like we're going to be talked about this next team every every week. Brentford three no hold the field, comfortable with dominated the plane terms of golden struggle to keep possession against all the field. I think this field up most of it, but all look comfortable. And when more scored an absolute screamer on the edge of the box, it's it across call stop bins. No issues. The no goals from advatawny. Is it a concern this early on? Well, I mean Christy, won't they want three nail? Yeah, I mean, though, he did get hopped in a get. He got hauled off. You got some off after I don't know long. It played about seventeen minutes worth. Yeah, so you got some. Got Some off. I really want now. So the thing we thought wasn't doing the Goulds, but you know, well, the lad that they brought on to replace him scored. There you go. It's pro we my mayor done himself out of the placing team. But I mean obviously so. Guy Canos was listening to me because he had a good game and I exlas mean we want, I said, he needs to saught his end products out. So, yeah, there, you guys obviously been listening. I've just got an image of surgery. Surgery, come off can as listed going. He's right. That coma from Lancashire. He's right. This frame. Have you got out? He's a game of his life and yeah, yeah, game. Well, I don't know about game of his life, but I mean, you know, and even even the way you left the pitch was cool, because he got substituted off in the sixty nine minute. What a boy. He still didn't score, though, so still need to work on that. And Product. He didn't score and he didn't assist. Well, it looked all right. I Love Bart Forward Player looks all right now goals,...

...assist, but he looked all right. Look the part right. I'm not. I'M NOT gonna lie, boys. I've only got one more game to talk about then I want to move on transfers. But the last fixture on the St abouts the reading game. Play. Bondsley read in two for two now, two wins to clean sheets. Looked good. Keeping all that ball looked good against both Barnsley and Darby and all Bardsley and Darby at the minute a particularly playing well and Bardsley. They get to add cards or reading topic league at the minute. Yeah, is that? It no longer any important. It's looking worrying for Barnes team. Men sent us as well. Wow, that's not unique to this game, though. I mean if you look up and the well, if you even if include all four leagues, the more cars than Clintons this week. Absolutely ridiculous. You send it. Sendings off all the place, way more think Clinton's. Yeah right, write that down. We're getting that on a t shirt cart Clintons. It's been everywhere. Sendings off left, right and center. Well, yeah, like I say, it's been worrying. Bit Worrying for Barnsley, I mean reading. Not Played One proper yet, so won't worry too much. Well, that's what that was. My next point the playing a playing Cardiff next aware from warm so that's probably the first year testing it. I mean they got like over the Gena. He's of course, good young talent and he's he's got that that pace that really makes a difference in the championship. Actually, you get if you got a a pacy play you always cause problems. I think in the championship. What they've got cars next and cut. You know, God, if it just been for its towhere from all key from more scored twice. So let's see how they get on the barns now lost the second game in a row as well. What we're thinking about their season? They're going down the shit barns late that they shouldn't even beer. No, they should even be in the championship. There's lucky to be here because Wigan got dropped points. That's the only reason for the yeah, maybe, yeah, you got to see. You got to season the opportunities. You haven't. Yeah, let him have the moment in the song and they'll go back down to league one next year. And we had tell all tales about it. Tell what tales? Just just to finish off to the championship segment. I just got a couple of it. Well, say a couple is a there's a few year right, first one I alla. It's got some lapban on, a free fit as good little signing for them actually from borough, solid championship player. If Blackburn but them want to get promoted, which I think they come, they're going to need signings like that, you know, just solid people that will just come in and do a graft. Experience as well in meals before long time playing the championship. Honey, he has. Yeah, I think he's got some prom experience and he as well. I all yeah, is played for Liverpool, Liverpool legend to to appearances some like that. Next one what fould absolute wheeler dealers. Right, I've got rid of a stoopin and all right, and I know you sat the one real new years. He's a player that's never played for what for? The's been at the club since two thousand and sixteen. Fifteen million they got for him. That's men until Birmingham doing some absolute bits and transfer window as well. Michael San Jose are coming from athletic call bill bow and a free. He made three hundred and four appearances for bill bow. Solid, solid sidning, especially for this level. He was like a mainstay of Bill Bile's team and he's left the Spanish giant. Really it's Gott's Birmingham which just shows are in ten foot season, and the second one who done is Scott Horgan. Returns to Birmingham undersclosed fee from Aston Villa, proven goal scorer at this, at this...

...level. So Birmingham could have an exciting season ahead. Actually write the next time and I want to talk about Darby. I signed a like cord commute, jeans VIAC, like Posnan. Those a year it were fans of feed for career. More will know about this month. Paulish winger, fast, very quick. Obviously is only played for lect pass and can't possibly know what he's going to do in the English Leagues. So we'll see. We'll see how he gets on. We'll keep anurn in for out the season. Bristol city. Couple of loan deals come, both coming from Fulham. I'll fee Mawson stevensessing young, nice of them to go out and get some some first team football. Bristol city of obviously feel out. The probably one that favorite school partner, I think, deck Adams to go up. Yeah, there are solid team this season, so it'll be interested to see what there in trouble. ACPOM. He's joined Middlesborough xr storm one played two seasons in the Greek League for in goals in fifty four games as a striker. Doesn't seem to to promise him, but he's back in England. See if you can impress James Garner, my unite to what food center sent the mid lawn. Solid player. He's impressed me whenever he's played for united the last transfer. Or talk about Jordan. I've he's left Bournemouth. You've Gone Darby on a free. It costball with that fifteen million, I think. So for him to gold to Darby on a free bit of a bargain in it. I think he's a good player. I think he's got potential to be able good player. But let's face it, this point he is looking to it is looking to resurrector's career and he yeah, I think I think it's a great move for Darby that and for joy that. I for Jordan, I. But I think it benefits both parties. He definitely needs to resurrect his career. He's got his reasons or look in the world. FROOM, I think. I think you'll do really good at Darby and Darby'll definitely get the best out of them. Yeah, I first started out all days. He was right on the verge of an England call at one point. So He's definitely got the talent. Just obviously things I haven't quite gone his way and hopefully at Darby be will he can sort of show a small potential and, you know, really make something special. Well, Jordan Ife, you know you've got the backing of the biggest DFL bad custer is. So well, we've got your back. We're open. You do well and in return, if you want to come on the show, come on the show. Why not? Yeah, yeah, let's talk do that, because we know that you listens. So every championship player lessons. Right just before we end championship segment. Will just go through a couple more results got discussed. Cardiff one to nowhere from home at forest. Luton beat Darby at home to one good result, ful loot in that. Middlesborough got a draw the bomber one one. My beloved Preston. North End got a weird draw at Norwich to to which I thought was actually good result. No Wall, one away from home rotherm. Sheffield Wednesday got a draw against what Ford. No Mail Swansea and Tim Birmingham, which finished Mil Mil. Sunday Bristol City went away to stalk. Did it on a cold, Wet night as on the evening one to. Now that's a really nice weather, wasn't it? Yeah, I think it was actually but yeah, right, that's it for the championship. On to the one DECKLIN. Okay, I'll start with first result the day and they're probably the biggest result of the day. If you haven't seen it us, yes, you watch the highlights. It's a black poole result. I'm going to kick off. It's not black pool. It's Plumo of fire girl. Was Actually AC Wimbolodon at home to plumo fire girl for eight golf thriller. What a crazy game. As soon as I saw the score was coming at five o'clock, straight on EFL on quest and I watched this the highlights.

That's how you are. Some great goals, all, all four goals for both sides, all screamers, every single one of them. However, a lot of mistakes, a lot of defensive errors and keeper keeper hours as well. I did write down a few notes, always goes when you've got a full podcast today. That's it. So so obviously Plymouth. They scored first with a very nice corner routine. So anything we wouldn't pulled one back literally within minutes. Two minutes later and it was a proper sweaty. You know those fee for goals. They just square it across and you make taps into an open that. It was literally just like the Plymouth keep. You had a bit of a Howler to be on this. The other chance to pick it up in Canda kind of dived over the ball and Joe Piggott was there just a tap it in Jordan. Pick ny your art out. Huh No. Well, then again, John Pickers made loads and mistakes. Asn't recently, and it will move on Plymouth. Obviously, this one was probably the goal of the game. Through condor grunt. He scored an absolute scream of twenty five yards out into the top corner. When will then equals for minutes into second half, for shame, we've got the keeper. Could have done more. Again, another how they from the keeper. And then, for the first time in the game, Wimbledon took the lead again. Then there's a joe pig at, got your second. Could I turning pay for that? Absolutely seamless this that I've room absolutely ruined. This. Can we do the ill? I think. Really I'm completely lost it because I can't use my phone. I've got the smallest notebody woman notes on. I've got one game on about nine sheets of paper. Those things you see, you know, those tiny sticky notes. I'm much trying to score for some other side. Basically, when wild in Plymouth was a really good game for for Joe pig it was my mother match for two goals and an assist. Plymouth keeper had two howlers and Plymouth for me or a team that going to do well this year in the league. Was Very surprised him lush last week against black pool when they when they managed to get one mill win and then they shoulder attack inside for roughly scoring four goals. It's not it's not very often you score four goals away from home and don't come home with three point, does it? Yeah, maybe that, maybe that tells them they mean need to work on the defending really well. It's not all. It's not just Plymouth Tho, was it? You got anything woman and they scored there, four goals and every credits then because I had them down to go, you know, to get relegated, and they played a Good Plymouth side, scored for and only got a point out of that. So maybe both teams need to work on the defense there. I'll tell you what I've just watched. I've just watched the highlights for this point of get. So absolutely fantastic finishing. Yeah, I said that kind of grants twenty five yard screamer. Brilliant. The free kick as well. Was that Joel Pickett with a free kid? Yeah, good, freak kick, solid, really free kick. Don Tellford at the end as well. Nice little play from Plymouth. Don't felt Tellford Dad to tap it in its blackball players. That's really it's trade. So been go, I say. I'll tell you what, though. Connor,...

...connor grunt is it is a good player. He he's come from editing as maybe he's an everting academy player and he think he's one of the Bettan wand fields and the championship. Actually he's decent player. Got Any experience now as well because he's played at Sheffield Wednesday as well. Obviously something work out for him there, but now it's been around the championship a few years. So good player. Right. So I moved on to the Oxford game with a big sigh here. Yeah, best football and team in England. Yeah, moving on with a big side. Bake them up massively last week after a loss. Still big them up thinking they'll come back homes. The Sunderland granted someone or a good side, but after the after the what I was claiming last week for the play him off the park and they lost two nil. I am gonna be honest with you. I saw this result and I couldn't wait for it up today because of last week. You stay hand on the heart, stay in the Oxford united the best football into you in England, and they've just lost two no, to Sunderland, no less. Yeah, no, I was. You can hear my voice. I was very disappointed on the Saturday and I was looking for a m and I thought, oh no, try John, all the best, start about this as well. How many shots you think the best football win team in the country had in this whole game? Shots on target? I'll sell you one. Yeah, shocking. Didn't even have the most possession. That's the most disappointing thing, the possession. They lost on that as well. No, I don't know, know, I'm bought. Then again, you look at what Phil Parkinson's doing with some Berland, after the turmoil they've had. They're going to be up there this year, aren't me? Thought Danny Gram was a bit of a weird assigning actually, because you didn't didn't do so well. They need some experience in the side, which is what what they've brought in this year. A lot of young lads are in the side. Last year they brought in some experience and obviously showing it. To be honest, it's a great it's a really, really good win, a too now win away at Oxford against the best football inside in the league. One. It's a great one. Right, I'll move on again. Fleetwood Peterborough. Now this was a game that made me smile. He's got foot away with the way. Let me tell you, if this game made me smile, have you guys send this game off? I've seen it. Yeah, you've got links to Peterborough, but you're hurry. I album from the originally, so I've got a little soft spot for him. But the posh, the posh? By all means is it posh? It's a shit all. So fleetwood bagged first and a fifty five minute Curtsey of calm camps and then it looked like fleetwood, we're going to go home, go back to the filth coast with three points, and then five minutes got added, five minutes valley time got shown. Peter for scored to in the ninety plus one and in the very last kick of the game that it plus five Peter scored the winner, also known as the ninety five minute, and ninety plus five definitely knows one ninety in numbers. Yes, to start again, tricky about me reading this direct from his Goa. Wait, you try and try and give us the name of the second goal score at at of that one of the Peter one. Yeah, she SCHMODIS, smadis. I'm going to be honest, I don't even though...

...a pronounce it so well, yeah, we'll go schmadi. Yeah, why not? Sorry, sorry, so sorry, Sammy. Right. Okay, moving on, moving on. I just want to talk charms for a bit more local for me and go back to the black pool game. I'm not this week, but we're not doing it every week. Listened that. Before you go getting all that sides, remember you've beaten a team we've only just come up. And not only that, but they lost the stuff striker. Yeah, and he didn't even have most of the ball and when they were too nailed the hound who did the call on for a goal, a thirty two year old bread bittman. Right, so you didn't be anyone of more. Sorry, Spendon, the blood pool got back to win. It way is against wind in sound it sweating. We're desperate to prove a point against us. They lost the three best players last year, as you've just touched on, their whole their front free, obviously, which got them promoted to his cashy Anderson, Jerry Eights and no. When Doyle, Oh, when doyle obviously be in the top scorer in the league. He went to Bolton and is absolutely doing bits there. I'm sure cone kind of all give us more on that later. All that later, Black Pool signed Jerry Eights and Cashi Anderson. So Swindon, we're proper desports. Prove a point. Long Story Short, they didn't Bo bull one. We absolutely smash them. Unlucky Swindon. Funds Right. I'll quickly move on to transfers. What the ready thest we had free transfers this week, a total free, which is actually to be honest. These were needed. Two of them have come from Wigan, designed a right back, Tom James, from hips. The sign him on loan. So the rap back will be with wigan until January seventeen. Such a short term deal is making a move to league one in search a regular first tea football is he down the pecking order? It hips. It made his first appearance for wicking at the weekend. Unfortunately, have you seen the school for a defender? He's made his debut at Wigan the last free to to Jillingen, so probably not the debut we'd wanted. A body teams and they signed. The sign another center back and Nathan well designed to say a said about Nathan Cameron, on a short term deal. So he signed as a free agent after recently leaving Michaelsfield town, obviously with what's going on Michaelsfield. So he's just left Michaels field and gone to wiggin. So looks like we're going to strengthening it in the defense anyway, which is what's needed because obviously the last again and then the last transfer talk about is a blackpool. Today we just signed Luke, Luke Gorbert from over to Luke garbor Garl but Gorbert from Everton. So that which actually, to be honest, is a massive signing, absolutely master and he is at heats of experience on low and most recently ips, which but he is actually, I'd quite a bit of experience in the Premier League as an he kind of with Everson. He has. Yeah, and I like the way you're playing this off, like you think it is amazing. Sign about half an hour ago, because before the podcast we came on and you were saying you don't need him. Got Some on the left back and I've basically, I basically sold loot Garbo to you of all this podcast. I'm not going to lie. When when it was announced on twitter and they said we've got another left back for we don't need him. You Got James Husband, who's currently injured, but we're just signed a Metri Mitchell from the united and knees absolutely unreal. And James Husband's a great left back as well. So we didn't really need one. But all the comments I send everyone's raving about and then you've given some high reviews. So probably and will probably go, because Garbo's a lot better than I.

I don't Know Watch about Mitchell from united, but Garbo's a great player. He's, like said, fair bit of experience in the prime. Suddenly relegated with for them. So I'm not the best experience, but a few tant quite a few times forever and he's got a cracking cross, cracking dead ball. You know, smalls. That's what happens when you sort of schooled by lay in bins for years, isn't it? So you'll you'll never guess where he's from coming. You'll love this. Where's he from? With Garb Arrogat? How are good get inside of how I get with the air cracking? So when as it gets a bit when he gets a bit older, he's going to come to harrogate, my new favorite team, and that's all that. That covers it. For Transfers in League one, there's only three this week, I think. I think it's going to be a regular occurrence to be on this not much to talk about in the transfer window. Hopefully, as we come later on it'll be a lot busier, but I think the opposite me deck. I think now we're today's news with the government. I think that's it. Game over. From the health transfers, the I can the offing is gonna be a last, last ditch scramble. No, I don't think anyone's going to anyone of not he's going to be acquired because I don't think clubs are going to be able to afford it, especially all leagues. Well, in that case that kind of rounds it off of me. I'll just let's go over the results that I've not mentioned quickly and then we can move on. So obviously started us off we said Wimbledon for Plymouth. For Black Pool, beats winning too nail. It's which got points on the road. They got three points against Bristol, rovers to nail and I'll be beat acrington Stanley to one. Doncaster picks up all three points against Charlton. What a result that is. Doncaster where Charlson free one down caster. Great result whole. Picked up points at home. They won their beat Croof one nail. Lincoln be MK DNS away to one. Sunderland obviously beat Oxford. Let me down a bit. Peter big fleetwood to one. Onlooky Joey Barton. Northampton beachers be away to one, and Jill and gun beat wiggan free to write. Well, that's it, fully one. Then let's move into lead to color John. So I will. Well, I'll jump in actually with some breaking news. Actually really that's come just today. So later and Orient EFL game against, if I'L Cup game, sorry, against Tottenham, been called off as they've adds, I think, four players testing positive for covid nineteen and it's just the sport. It's the latest in the sort of current trend last few weeks. It seems that more and more footballs are starting to get it. So I don't know what that means for lating orients upcoming fixtures, but we'll keep a close eye on it and obviously hope for a speedy recovery for all those involved. There was there was talk of spurs going through by default, workner, but they've obviously made the decision to just postpone the game. Yeah, are you can't do that in this in this situation. I know it's so much smaller game, but in the fair court, in the qualifying roles, but the ridge of just that, the four fit those against apple to due to a play being tested positive crow of hours. Yeah, it's a shocking real isn't that? So it has happened, but why is it one run for one and one to other? Yeah, and this is I mean this is a thing because you see, obviously the the be a cluse. With a bit more money they can pay to have all these tests done privately so they know that their players they getting tested. I think he's every three days and any player who gets his positive then isolat straight away. Well, think is like later an Orient. They can't all been doing that. Don't have the money to pay for them. Private testing every three days. These players could have been mingling with the old squad for a week. So it's a little bit of ever sort of the more money you have, the better off you're going to be coming out of this, and I don't think it's right and all that. In the FA Cup,...

...obviously the owner side of the care about curt Liverpool's draws against Lincoln reddimps and Liverpool were paid for a couple of rounds. Are Testing for them to make sure that this doesn't happen, and I think that's what the bigger club should be doing, not trust Premier League calls for championship teams as well, you know, to ensure that football does carry on, because I think if it carries on this way then football together might stop because I think you look at it, we're the football world certainly is in a much worse situation now coronavirus wise than it was when it originally shut down. There's talk of the government stepping in as well, sort of sing to help the smaller clubs out. That came out today. It's nothing's been decided yet, but it was. The question was asked and I know it's getting it will be discussed, we'll say. Maybe we'll have some answers while you next week when, as I say, not just the players are like an orient but any football player of anyone in that indeed US suffering the coronavirus. That all. We wish you all the best and speedy recovery. So smooth on to the results, should we? So first that off. First game want to talk about is Exeter Port Veil about. This was a extant mail port veil to or bill. Winning away from home seems to be a bit of a theme with the no funds and stadiums. Seems to be a lot of away wins. I think I heard a stat that over eighteen percent of the games have resulted in home in away wins this week, so across all four leagues. So obviously seems to be a theme. A bit like that with Oxford. Actually, I was a bit disappointed with this because I've been big in exit to Rocker's potential challenges to go up. Yeah, they were my team to to win league too, as well. So yeah, it's a shame isn't it? I mean Port Bil or. The know they've won the first two games back. They finished seventh flash year, so they're going to want to better. That ugh to be fair. Watching it, and I did watch like the extended highlights of this one, I didn't pay for it, an I follow because maybe when we get some sponsors, you know on the PODCAST, I'll be able to afford that ext looked up. Lucky to lose to gus with you. The dominated the game, more shots, more possession than what they went down. The first goal was a Tom Conlon for free kick and it was an absolute worldy. You don't mind me saying so. I don't care who would have been in that, you know, whether it be for the Alison boof on thee ever, they want no one to say that. So good on your Tom Common, but unfortunate for exit to go one Miel down to that. And then the second goal really controversial. So extra player, think it was Archie Collins at the ball middle of the pitch and basically just sort of got dragged back off the ball. To me, my expert I look like a clear foul. The ball sort of bounce free and it fell to put their player they just put it through to Davance, a Rodney and he just sprinted through in a finished it. Two goals there. That really exeter the both going to feel hard done by. You know, both those goals are going to feel hard done by with them. So it's been of a shame for him after that. Exter absolutely dominated. There was a real, real onslaught. They're just pepper in the port, the old gold. They just could not get out or bail what. Couldn't get the ball in the back of the net. And you know that's what's important. And this backs up why I said last week about x two desperately needing another striker because, as I said last week, they've got bowman, who all right for you goals last season, but he can't do everything. You know, here he was the one. He was getting the ball, he's driving them for he was crossing it in. He's crossing it in to Matt J W I'm not...

...going to go in him again because a moment about him a bit last week, but it is seven years in professional football as a striker. He scored four league goals and then to replace him to try and win the game at Tonel down, the bought brought on a lad called Ben Seymour who is signed from western Super Mare and has never scored a professional goal. So, like I say, it's all right now. They're going to pick up points ex to I'm no doubt you know, because but Bowman is going to get the goals. You might get a few from the field. A woman gets, you know, hits bad form, gets injured. Where it? where the goals coming from in this x the team. So the and they've got no excuse now in terms of money because, like, like we said last week, they've got four million quids coming from the ally Watkins Sale. So there's no excuse now. But the well, I say they've no excuse. The one excuse they I've got and I wanted to ask you that's about. This is to me, looking across the league, it seems like it was a real lack of sort of goal getting strike is in the FL if you look at lead to, for example, last season, you are your own. Doyle got twenty five good return. After that the nine goal difference before the next best, which is Nicky Maynard, and then outside of the top three that you looking at ten goals season. Strikers in a in a forty six game season. We're all the good goal scoring strikers, whereever we got any. I mean, if you're a good goal scorer, you won't stay in the to very long because you get picked up straight away. I think. I think Owen Doyle did really well last year, but obviously he has a good season, you got snapped up. Yeah, stayed in League to, but he's obviously you got snapped up by a bigger club. You look at Swindon's front free they got. They went up. All of them got got snapped up. It's starts the problem with League to. You find yourself a good player and you're not going to be in lead too from much longer. Yeah, I think what it is as well is a lot of these top teams, you know, your cities, liver pools and stuff like that. They are very much focusing now on the youth academies and the very the not as quick to just get rid of youth. We saw it Chelsea. There a lawn and out Lord's disuse prospects was just falling them out because it's some money making thing. But the Lower League teams aren't attracting younger players because, listen, fourteen year old me if I'm playing football for my law call team and I get approached by Bolton. Lead to Bolton, but then also looking at me. You want to take me on. I've got city, united, Liverpool, Everton. I ain't going Bolton. Should not, I mean, but I say it's money, isn't it? It's would rather player foot? Would you rather gone play football every week or going? Well, I mean if we talk about united, I was going to say stay on the bench, but you probably not going to get on the bench. or You I'd be happy to be an academy on a grandom weed. To be honest with you, you known't care. Well, that's the thing, you know. You look at the reserves and people in under twenty three S. he's young lads. They're going about fifteen round the week sitting reserves. Right, Bolton's top two strike because I'm getting that. Well, that's it, like you say, that's the intire that's the entire wage. Was You some of these teams? I mean, you know poor how I get you know what was that wage? Would you be they can't go and get it aloney from the Premier League, from even the championship. Probably not. I think it's just gone a bit, especially the top two leagues. It's gone a bit mad and it's making it harder to keep good players down in way too. But I mean, like I say, not trust. I'm not just about League Tim Talk About League one as well. There's the best striker in the...

...league and then after them there's a massive this seems to be a massive gap. There's not the reason as many goal scoring strikers like that. was talking about Delf last week. Every club he's been at, he's played loads of games. As he scored any loads of goals? No, and yet we talked about him with some sort of assisting striker or something. When did that become a thing? strikerslet's put the Bollet back at that row. There's that way. I just I don't know, I don't get it. So anyway, more of the stories like we started out extra. Get yourself a striker, you'll probably go up. Don't get yourself a striker, you died in Cup cut. Put it one something like now. There you moving on talking and grimms Grimsby sulfered. This was a mental game. I think I messaged you to adds and producer Dave about this game. It did I'm very disappointed with Greens. Well, this was a well listened at. This was going to feel are done by. This was a barby game. So it was grimmsby nail soldered for another away win. And now you know score. I'm looking at it made me quite happy because I had Salford tip to go up and there coming through its lot to be coming through with that. But then I had a look further and then I watched the full game. I'm amazing. I watched the full game, the recording of it. So SOULFORD, three of their four goals came as three penalties. So I'll give you a bit of a blow by blow account of this one because it's just absolutely not grimsby started the game really bright. You had a couple of good efforts. They should have had a penalty themselves right in front of the REF player brought down to me looked pretty clear. But you know, if said I'm not given and again, if that was a situation, a refted give it. I thought that was a pretty dodgy decision not giving that. And then a few minutes later sulfurd they given one of the softest penalties I think I've ever seen. In my life. Henderson. We mentioned him last week. I think the other I think produce a day. CUT It out. Thanks, Dave. Come down. It's come down from league one. He's one of the few quality strikers in league too. Now he's come down from league one. Score goals everywhere. He's been back to hat tricky, or'll get to that. He says a throwing it bounces back to him and he just flicks the ball around the corner and the grimsy players just left his leg there a second too long. And I don't care anybody says Henderson moved his leg towards the grimsy players leg to make it look like he'd gone over it. He could easily got gone past, could have easily got the ball, but he decided no, I'm going to make this up like a pain. Anyway, down he went, penny got so there you go. Grimsby end up being one mill down the keep it up. Absolutely pepper in the sulfur goal, really cracking end to end game. Is this soulfod keeper, Laddie, I think, hellad key. That's my arts my best pronunciation of it, who I think the best keeper in the League anyway, absolutely on fire. Amazing goalkeeper performance keeping everything out. And then soulfers there for the storm wall pain turned down. Last Man, took the player out, cleared an eye over goals, growing up, acuity and rift, to give it absolute madness. And he had like a five minute conversation as well stop the game at his massive conversation with the linesman. For what I could see, linesman looks like he's saying to give a pain refest, totally ignores in anyway and refuses to give it. So there you go, and it's not a storm wall pain denies. And yet a few minutes later the ref gave soul for the penalty, and this is not an exaggeration, and anyone who's listening who saw the...

...game is going to agree with me. The Ref gave a penalty for to this day I don't know what for. No one in the ground knew you what for. The play is carried on playing, the comment sators on on, I follow didn't have a clue what was going on. Bloody in fact our I actually watched it via the sulfurd city website the game and it was sorts. Obviously a bit of bias commentary there. Soul for city commentary is didn't know what it was for. Basically, cross came in and defender sort of chested it when our play for a corner. No one in the cut in the grounds claims for anything, and the Rif gave a penalty for handball, but didn't even remotely look like a handball. You know, it was absolutely mentally ascent off for it as well. No, not for this one. Now getting a ruined story decade bill. I'm sorry. So anyway, that was enderson second goal. We converted completely. Is that trick of it? Later, unmarked header. That was shit. Defended from Grimsby. I can't. I can't defend you for that one. GRINS BE I'm sorry. So there you go. Then it's all for do get. A third penalty, and it was a legit pain as well as one. Again. Last man just kept dragging the player back. Use Three one on one with a keeper. He did get his shot away. What he was dragging him back and he probably would have scored if them and dropped back. So that was a legit penalty. So there you go, and that says it ends up leaving for now. They're so basically out. Nothing's just watch that penalty. Incident. That is weird. It mental. No one in grand claim for it, not even the player this Alf, the city player, who stood, you know, a foot away from it. He doesn't claim for it. And grimmsby got the got a right really to be really pissed off about this result, to go a sweet because he got first Poles soft as well. Yeah, but absolutely nothing from him. I want to where that that first penalty. This the one where Hanson like leaves his leg and kind of buys the foul. You see in especially gone on League, to the amount of players that are doing this because they get away of every single time. That the state. The state are the officiating in League one and the too, and it's not just from the rest, is from the liners as well and the fourth official. It is absolutely horrendous. Yeah, I mean this, this was the worst referee informance I've ever seen in any LEA FAL stop. It was absolutely abysmal. You know, I don't like to slay officials either because I've got a hard job, but this was I've never seen anything like it, absolutely barb so it's yeah, I don't want to say about it through as we loves. Yeah, but ment all that, I've just watched the highlights and it fucking yeah, that's a that's a shambles. That react again now. Disgraceful. Yeah, and I say it's a I mean I was going to ask about this, but the quality of referee, you know, League one, league to, like you said that, it's it's really poor, really poor. That's what this what you're going to get. It works, as in it works just like the football league. You have you have good Games, you get right, it goes. It goes like a league system and if you start becoming consistently good in league to, you start reffing league one games and that's and that's how it works. So lead to has technically the worst under the rest in in the in the AFL, and obviously league ones not really much better, to be honest. Well, and I'll tell you some else. I can't remember the names involved in this, but about five years ago, and this is all legit facts as well, by the way, in the Premier League, obviously they adds all the Premier League refs. However, I think it was seven or eight Premier League referees all retired the same year, because don't know if you remember. If you think about the refer the rest are room around in the prem sort of fight a fight ten years ago. They're all old then and then they all retired. So they promoted a lot from the championship. Then that's filtered down because obviously then there's a gap in the championship of the Best Championship referees. So the matter replace them with League one referees. League one referee, that...

...three replaced by a League two referees, lead to restaurants be put you know, replaced with non League refs or Nudi refs or whatever, and that's how this has happened, I think, because there wasn't enough forward planning at the time, you know, staggering the tiremants and whatever. It's made this this massive dearth of just shit officials, basically the arm good enough for the league that they're in. The thing is fair enough. It's lead to it's the lowest professional league, but it is a professional league. This is people's lies. You messing with managers, lively olds, managers jobs. You know, it's this scratchful, but there you go. That's my that's my runt. Over well, but my second run and over anywhere. I've still got the Bolton game to come. Yeah, bring it on, bring on the Bolton game, because they are be it. Yeah, let's I'll start this now. So this is colchester to Bolton Mill. So a rare home winn here. So at Colchester buzzy. I could tip colchester as my outside chat, outside tip, to go up from me to really glovely one are. So, first off, credit to Colchester. Solid defensive report. Performance broke really well, so the chances when became procker, well organized, cracking result. Right. I've been slated by a few bolts and fans this week for giving him absolute bashing last week. Well, I'm going to stay. Yeah, I'm starting by telling him to brace themselves because they're going to be bashed again now. First off, I'm going to say this right and I don't care if what you say, Bolton fans, you can't argue this. Last week we said we were moaning about that Bolton set their stall out with three massive center backs, not ball playing center backs, three massive brutes basically, and we said that was all wrong for the way that he never wants to play. Is promised all this passing, attacking, free flowing football and gets these three massive said to backs. But the one thing that, you know, having those three big center that should mean is that you can defend set pieces. And then what the Bolt and go and do for the first goal. Can See from a corner it's the most bolting thing that about. One of ever done that. Yeah, absolutely ridiculous. And then second goal. We called it last week Alec Alex Baptiste. It's absolutely done for pace by a nothing ball over the top GIVANNI. Brown flies passed him. Absolutely flies passed him and credit to Brown. The finish is brilliant, cracking finish because the fair way out on the keepers. The keeper in credits him is he's come out and maybe afer him, but Brown's finished it really well. Team doesn't seem to be set up right or the play five in the back, the two wingbacks. So you know for some teams that will work. The whipping crosses him and if if you watch the highlights this game, bolt and are they getting the ball? Seeing a lot of the ball as well. And the whipping crosses in the thing is the strikers. It a Delphonso and oh in doyle. They're not amial strikers. The bought and I'm going to get goals for dolphop crop well, we know, don't way is it? He's an assisting striker. Apparently, wherever everybody knows Dell's scores goals we go. Is Creative created? Well, we didn't create any any but I mean I'm I'm looking at the stats of the game and in ever, obviously is all about retaining possession, moving the ball and and before we go on about the score again, I know obviously what ball and had sixty four present possession. So the clearly keeping the ball and they had ten shots. The problem and they fought. They had five goner as well. As the problem is is is up front. Out of them ten shots, the are two shots on target in the whole game. Yeah, now, I'll tell I'll tell you that now right, if you watch the game, like I said to you, that they have plenty of the ball. What they're doing? The thinging out, why? And the whipping it in and it's bouncing back out through...

...it again because Colchester, the defended really well. They took you got behind the ball, but that also remember, they couldn't get out for last periods of the game. So it's just fall into bolt and again. That's why I go so much possession. But the whipping these crosses in. You haven't got a big man in there. You know. Once the point of buying the best finisher in the league ever promising they're going to play this passing, bloody ticky tacker football, you know, like you played with Barrow, and then playing like this. Just a quick one deck delf. Last season got two assists. That's my creative my creative striker. Oh Damme. WHO's averaging? Not Point not five assists, P ninety. It's described. The season before. You got three assists, little bit better. Not Point not nine assists. Put Ninety. Higainder, season before the hut. Ye, have five assists. You got more point one assist, but nine. Who? It's progressed in the reverse order, isn't it? Maybe I'm looking through rose tinted glasses, tangerines into glasses. Times are yeah, tendory intend to could do with some of those. He's never actually had more than five assists in season. He actually scores more goals on the assist deck. So maybe he's a finishing striker, just a shit one. No, we're joking about bolted. I mean they've are the worst possible start of the tow game games. Two defeats and the Farm's disaster. Obviously I'm going to be up to that. But they've got my junior and ever, who's not going to give up. He is trying to play the right way and it in that league when football isn't isn't great. Anyway, the Bolton are trying to play football the right way and I think when it clicks, it will click. Obviously the Goto in Doyle Lewis Prolific and I think once it's clicked they'll probably win more than than the lose. I do back here, ever, and I still think. I still think they'll make the the top seven. There's them tangerines into spectacles again, isn't it? But Anyway, I just finished with Bolton because you see, that leads on. Well for my way, you saying about back in ever, I'm going to mention a Bolton fan that also was three no, Dane, Dan Farremond, and Dane says the one more loss for Bolton and he's joining the ever out brigade. What do we think of that? Boys? Three Gate, three games into so he's fo yeah, she's with I don't he's no easy calls concerned it. I've messaged him directly to ask. So what are you saying, boys, what you think about that? Three Games in abandoning support as it's too early, way too early. The you never is proved. He's proved what you can do it by row. I know it's it's a similar situation. I'd be delph out before everything. See, I hate on Bolton generally, but how he's got a real be in his bonnet about Delph I'm better than thef and delpons or and he's. I'll tell you. I'll give him our ring big ear up and I'll just say what Mamy Harry says. He can do a job for you. Let's drop delph out. How he's going to support in? Do you look from? Listen, your worries will be over. I'll bring me on boot and funds would you like? How are you hunt up from at me? All were my only request. I want the number fourteen shirt, please. There you go. You at it here first. If Bolton lose next week, what do you reckons? Should we get day on for five minutes and say are you ever ever out and why? We'll call him out on his bullshit. And if there's a Bolton fan listening, who's ever in back effort. Let us know and we'll get you on as well. Run away both sides of this story. Yeah. So, anyway, I've done enough ranting. I mean it's a night. Just interrupt uncle. On that number four, I've done MIS starts. Yeah, I've done here me research. And how are you would have to fight off Tom White. He's actually made...

...two starts, played both games hunder and sixty one minutes. So He's a first team player. Well, you have it. Knows in. Well, you've got to try and get in tween of as good books. Got His loyal listen, but I'll take any number. I'll tell you what. I might as well set the number seven, because that's delphs number. So you want again, Willie, got me seven, absolutely. You know, ironically, about the amount of goals is going to get this season, if that, if that any more games? Color. Yeah, I'm just I'm just wanting to fidgit finish on a positive color. Of Been Negative about all these teams. How I get town, my boys, how I get the gone and gone themselves are to to Walsa. Good result that that Man Jack Muldoon again it's got another goal. So He's ripping up the championship. So he's having a great time and they held their own, you know, they really did hold their own. They add you know, he was a fifty game. Could have gone either way. Also, I got a good size, you know, Danny got three. Good player ironically got sent off, you know, but there you go. Decent team. So they've done really well held the role and they're currently in a playoff position. So bring it on. They were unlucky as well. They were they were leaving the game. HMM. Yeah, they were a lucky I think. I think it was in the last ten minutes that we're Warsaw actually equalizes. Yeah, it was eighty one minute, Josh Gordon. So there were two one up, and I mean I suppose that's a little bit. In fairness, that's where the fitness starts to show stepping up into professional league, I think. But you know, all the best of our get lads and you know, falls on twitter. Get on. Get on board if you want to. If you want to get on, give us a shout out because we're really room for you.
