This week Harry's back as the boys discuss the latest goings on from up and down the EFL. We talk about the latest signings as well as touching upon the biggest results and the interesting news from week 4 of the EFL season.

Hello and welcome back to up so for the ground share podcast to show where we talk all things EFL. I'm your host, hurry, joined by my tow Co host deck. Say Hello. Hello, I'm connor. Say Hello. Oh, just to start off, I want to thank producer if stepping in last week. I willn't very well going, to be honest. Still feel a bit of Shit, but we soldier on. Right. So, lads, let's start off. I've been oh yeah, not so bad. Been Busy, you know, busy, busy, busy, as long you know. Hopefully I can't catch whatever you've got ya by headphone. So gone. Have you even tell us about your flood? So welcome. This morning, obviously raining, open the doors to go outside and steps into a massive puddle in my porch. Luckily didn't go any fairer than that, but it was a big puddle outside. He didn't sell the drama on that this year. It was ruded. I thought there was a puddle. Sure we're not ask about the flood? Looking, I've got a script. I'm ready to read my script. Yeah, it's quite nice to speech to bolt actually, because won't really we don't speak as much as we should do it. We don't so, kny more. It's nice to have all. I miss you ball last week question. It must be bad if you missing Dave let's. I'm going to stop, I'm going to stop flirting with you and we're going to get we're going to crack on. And so first thing I want to discuss on this lovely Tuesday evening, saying little. It's been pissing on all there. The latest petition that's gone up this evening to allow football fans to attend the matches currently stands are eighty four Tho signatures, which means sixteen thousand more after debate it in parliament. You guys, are you guys for against it? I signed the petition completely for it. Can't wait to go back to the ground. Oh Yeah, and for you know, I don't see why we can sit in pups, but you know, not sitting Tenzero seat a football stadiums if you get to south, if you get two thousand and you can say five meters a part. I believe that the cinemas are showing the premier league this well, is it this trying the Premier League next week? Is it? Well, yeah, they've got no films to show. The losing money. I think the new world is closing down some of the Summ of the cinemas having to show the football, though, which means people can go to the cinema to watch the football, but they can't go and sit outside in their stadium and watch the football live. It's stupid. No, I'll go what we hope so if I can go, what heart that's got to it? Yeah, stupid, though. I'd much rather go and watch it live. And and it's safe for you say, say, going to pressing north. And what's the capacity at deep del Ho? Fin Fourzero, I think right, twenty fourzero. So say they let in so they can social distance. So you let in what Eightzero, which is way more than you average attendance anyway. Okay, you can. You can easily show social distance, can't you? And it's miles better than it's miles better than going to the pub to watch the game. Yeah, just drop a seem one on the stream, right. Nor, your answer was interesting deck because you won't even come to the pub with the boy's well, yeah, but you're happy to go and sit with thousands of funds. fucking half is go and sit with so black pool of dawn them. They sold obviously bloomfield world's capacity, seventeen thousand. They wouldn't sell more than fourzero season tickets this year because they wanted to maintain social distance. And so be fourzero people spread across Seventeen Tho twelve. So you get match day tickets as well. Probably got about six thou funds spread over Seventeenzero seat stadium. I could easily sit away from everybody, social distancing, feeling safe and still watching the game, and that's miles better than going to the pub with everybody. And it's not just you guys, because I know you guys are safe, for some of you are, but I don't know who the people set the army have been seeing and so far it's a smile safer. So yeah, I feel a lot more comfortable at stadium than I wouldn't have pop. I don't know what what you think about that Connor. Yeah, how what do I mean? You know, our local round are the lion you die in at the best of time, regard and regardless of coronavirus. Right, boys, we're just going to carry on. We're just going to talk football. Now. Just add the deadline day for European transfers. My League was on interesting, to be honest. Wich happened? I think Albert a Donna went to keep your arm,...

...that's mine. That's that surprises me. That what those weapinship. If I didn't know what a surprise you, I'll, but do'm a going to keep you are just being quiet. No, it's surprising the championship. I thought that would be the out of the Free Leagues we talked about. I thought that'd be the busiest in the European transfer window. Yeah, AP'm rearly the borance, but I'll st there watching the dead lander born. Did you have a yellow tail? Nor own ache. So was I bid my yellow tile. What a wild talk about actually here? Well, he'll talk about only the greatest piece of transfer business in championship history, Personal Fund Signs Shaker, but no one's ever heard of it. Came on sen minutes and did notten listen. He's quick, he's big. That it, that it, and that's it. That's it. Yeah, that's it for now. He scored some cracking goals, not for North End, but he's only player fifteen minutes. Sounds class, but I'm set. I've been watching compilations of it on Youtube and it's heavily edited with like the Weirdest fucking dubstep music. So the thing is, I could. I could put connor on Youtube and making look like the next one died. Well, I'd always use me as an ex I mean if I die, I think you showed himself. Now he's a bit over eight. It's shining a proper shing. I was good. I was good in me day. Thank you, but yeah, Pon a Sanna Shaker. One hundred and forty two, one weekend against Brent, three when God come back. That's all really a class. We're classes. Go on, you're one of those all prefetcle fans, but you hate nor offended. You hate football. And then you win a game and it's the best thing that and then north ends the best thing that's ever happened to the world. Now I asked produce a day the question before we went on there. I'm going to ask Harry the same question before before northend obviously won the game. So you have to kneel down. Were you Alex Neil out at the time? Right, so I listen to I'll listen to another podcast called from the Finner, which is a Preston north and podcast. If there is any northen funds out there, got check them out. They are really gold. All the north and funds are on this podcast. Fuck all through you, right, but they said it perfectly. Alex Neil is a brilliant manager. Who is going to do what he does with North end better than him? Who's going to do it? DICES number one. He won't come to northend. But but who? What manager is the bought manager would look at North End and think, yeah, I'm going to go there, I'm going to get backed and we're going to we're going to be up there. Not, nor manager do it. Alex Neil works on a shoestring budget. Doesn't get the places he wants. He said in a press conference as well that he doesn't want any more bodies. So it feels to me like he's kind of put his foot down on a board now and just said stop bringing in Shit, which they usually bringing. So it does he not get us say in the transfers and he's that, you say, not really nice. It's Peter Riddsdale in it. He does it all, I see. That's where you've got problems and managers should have a seen who you want. Surely what's the difference between a manager a head coach, isn't it? It's also be with the title, the list of players. Alex Niels wanted and pressed in the bad through the door, etc. Etc. And they've not got it over a line. He's massive and it's because Trevor Endings and Peter Ridsdale and all that. They don't want to they don't want to pay money. So we get all these get all this shit like Jamal Wall north, and cut fine a hundred thousand pounds from that is ridiculous. We've been linked with Max or Casey, Palmer, Adam arms strong, by the way. These are all before the signed for that Blackman, etc. Reim brewster was linked last season. They've had loads of them through the door as well and they don't sign because the can't because the backroom stuff a shit. Peter Ridsdale and gandedly destroyed leads. I thought bought. Area is at North End, so I'll still in a job. Travel Iron Still owns the club. I don't know how that happens. Sorry, I'm going to run. I'm just fronting now. Well, actually, we were talking about owning the club and there's anybody still got that little graph I sent them before. But how much money actually as Barnsley, I'm actually the richest club by quite a bons Ley in the championship,...

...which is mental considering one of the teams that will go down pressed and the press. They quite high. UPE thought. The the probably just just above the middle of the part nine, which ever, I'm in. So this should definitely should be spending a bit more than what they are doing. A sports to wear spots are one of the guys at work today's also an orphan fan and we were talking about this new signing and I said I think we're still stupid for not getting Hugil for three million, paying for you, three million for Jordan, you girl who gets four, who gets fifteen goals of season. Championship's bargain. So I think we're stupid for not doing that. I'm I'm a mat put it perfectly said, if it's not a race orce trevor emonds and interesting, that's a rare sauce. Trevor emonds will put three million down for it, but he won't do it for a football player. And you're still in profit. You seven million in profit. Idea, if you get hugo back because he's not sign to send. Yeah, so makes loads of sense to me to bring him back to North End. He's got my rich now. So what's our question in it? So well, if you haven't gone to Nourwich, h well, I mean to. I means to spend the money on. You'll spend the money by now somewhite Arabian Stud Aus to Shag all the Mares as I don't know what what you've just said that port will go with it. Yeah, will treading sor it works. Horse loves, loves the girl. I mean, I'm not sure I respond. So when you get in there to talk about the birds in the beach, yeah, I don't. I don't. This is it's just one of them, suss. Have you got anything championship related? That's that's that's not all. Yeah, have we got any of you got any scores? Yeah, can fight interesting scowls lines. So this quickly score line into me. It's a good job we don't charge for this podcast. If you won't, please let us know, because we could arrange it. ha ha ha. So first call line. I want to talk about Brentford to Presston foot I jockey. What a result that now the enders unrelievable to nail down our time. They come out a different side and made me last you put on you put on a tweet saying what, what's Iceland Guy's name? Jacobson, and the old reason said you said the you said there's Jacobson effectors. So like that, I was like, he was on the on for ten minutes. Yeah, do anything, but I change the game around. Obviously interesting one for me. Black the nail, Cardiff and Oh yeah, sounds interesting that one. Ha, ha ha. He's no, but I'll tell you why it's interesting because Cardiff went on one down with twenty minutes left and Blackburn have been pretty roofless in front of goal this year, so they must have done well not to concede Louton they beat Wickham to nail. Yeah, so it's not looking good for Wickham, is it? It's easy, six points in it think. I think everybody's looking at it going yeah, all love will take six points off then this season I think Wickham will finish bottom and they'll finish on the lowest points in championship history. The lowest points total of all time in the championship was eighteen pointments and that was rothering in two thousand and sixteen and Seventeen. I'm going to come out and say I think we can. Won't get more than twelve points this year. Twelve. No where. They'll get more than that. That's why I'm saying twelve point this forty six games of the season. Remember, forty two left as a lot of game it to be fair. I've not scored a goal yet, not picked up a point. Forty two games last if not scored the goal, we're not scored a goal and the kid seeded ten. What's your prediction, then, color and hurry, for we can. I'm going to say now. I'm going to say that equal. I think they'll geet eighteen on the goals. I think they'll finish on lower than eighteen, but I don't know if they'll finish on twe lower than twelve. Where it's not. How much of a gap is it? What? They've got to be really shit that that's two wins. Are they've got to be really shit to finish a lesson twelve. I'll go fourteen. I'll caught the I'll go. I'll slit the difference. All, wait, all, that's not fifteen. Difference Right. Fifteen, awesome. Yeah, fifteen, I'll go. Fifteen points and fifteen. I will come back to the season when the finishing playoffs. Yeah, where it's turn form the one. Every single game from the series we've said, yeah, Garrethans will smash. She got with the playoffs from nineteen position. Everyone's calling Garthens after the England. Next England job. Let's took out the Friday a kickoff Coventry. One bomb of three born. If Aka good team outborn must mean. Yeah, they're they're lucky to come down. Really,...

...they've got a've got a better team, you know, than the championship. Really, they were lucky to come down. It's just that a bad season last season and recover anythink. Yeah, I mean I'm surprised that how bad dominic Lankis as a football player. Yeah, no, surprised as I am being a Liverpool Fan. Christ, he proper. He is dog shitting like. He's really just not a good strike. He just doesn't like barely scores, which is crazy, crazy, still at bomb. Well, that this is it. He's the air of delf, isn't it here? Oh, we'll get to that little weird all. I don't know if he's weird you might. I'll be with you, but we'll get to him. Is a really nice person. How do you know? I've met in plenty of times. No, Christy, listen, dext in the circle is amongst the stars. Let's all Yah. Yeah, dels Brett Alm od, I've wrote, I've rubbed shoulders with best best, with the goals of League one. Forget, get some of the one boody podcast just to this is like where did I J can't right. We claim so much we'll can't deliver right quickly. Just tooked on a couple more championship results. Bristol city one again to one against not even forest, which isn't a shark. Forest still zero points. Talk about work, can finishing on record law, but forest still have got zero points. So it's a warring times for them. I think so much, so much, drastically wrong. And then also reading the beat Watford one. Now great result for went reading. I think they've got maximum points from the four games and sits second on goal difference just beyond busted city, and that's only on goal scored. Read enough, think a surprising most people at the minute. Do we think it? Do you reckon? They can go on and finished off kind of carry on in this form. No, don't think likes deck for your insight. AFIN will fade away. I think Bristol city well and I think Bournemouth will and I think rovers could be the dark horse as well. But no, I think read enough in. They'll finish with table and I'm pretty much done. I think. Whi Championship not much, not transfer business of nor part from cresting one. They were screaming for that striker. They've got him. Now let's see if they can push on another good season. Well, we have had we have a breaking news from the championship, via producer Dave. I don't Oh, yes, course we have, just before star recording. Sorry, Matt's completely my fault. So not even forest. I've sacked the manager and employed Chris. I can never say his name, Hoyton, Human Houston. There's a pointed in as the new manager. So good, Ma's good manager. Championship level. It's a got a couple of teams to promote it. So he's got it's got me. For how long could the sacked and plum though, when you've already got a manager? The managers not really even less like less the building yet you've already got one walking in. Yeah, it's very, very Watford, isn't it? Yeah, well, let's I'll tell you when the announcements were, sort of eighteen fifteen tonight. They announce the head coach, Sabrin Le Mouci, had had his contract terminated. One thousand eight hundred and forty five. Chris, Chris Houghton, hurt White, Satan or Houton Houghton as a fighting manager. Half an hour. That's model. Yeah, it's mental. You feeled it shit, if you will, the mature. Yeah, but forest, I've had the problems and in the season, we said this, laughink were touching it last week with forest and look at it. Their form and they've not been great at all. I think Chris, I'm just going to call him Chris. I think Chris is a is a very good manager at this level and he will come in and he will study that ship and you will see in the forest pickup points are think, definitely top HAL finish. I think they're readinal swap places. I think they're in the season there in reginal swamp places. I think forest will be maybe just outside the top six because of the bad start, but I think they'll be up there. They're always up there. There were a good side the forest and then, as he said, there's forty two games left the season. I think they'll pick up more points up. Just one last thing before we move on to League one. Barnsley, the riches called in the championships. I've lost the manager,...

...jered struber. He's left. It's Contin New York Red Bulls. Bit of a weird one in it that the your red balls in and alas, good move for him, I think. Oh yeah, well, he's just he's leaving. He's living in Barnsley. He's moving to New York. There's a good move for it. Hey, Barnsley as often been referred to as Britain's New York. I said, deck and I have cycle three barns like. We can assure you it's a shit all. Oh, we've lost the Bondsley funds down. That's it off. But yeah, that's pretty much from the championship this week. Not much went on. Move on to League one. Right, okay, so I want to start off by talking about a team that a bit of the dark horse this season. That teams Lincoln City. The sit top of the League I've been played four games and they've won them all, the last game being a way at Blackpool, winning free to cut on the IMPS. So I watch this game and I follow and they were impressive. Granted, two of the goals were penalties and the third was a defensive mistake by Black Pool, but I'm not better about it. It doesn't matter either, go in as long as you scored and win the game, and that's exactly what they did. So Lincoln have brought in all this. What I wanted to start to say. Absolutely Lincoln have been quite active chancefer market and they've brought him thirteen fresh faces this season. They're average age in the team that played against Blackpool this week was only twenty three years old, so they've clearly strength from from last season. But I just wanted to ask you, guys, drecking, that's the key to do well in the League one? Obviously they're average a, just twenty three, so that's a very young squad. Do you think it's key to have a young and a jet squad or do you think they'll kind of fade out and you need a bit more experience in, I think, in like League one and League to I think the best bet is going with a quick, energetic squad with a couple of experience players dot in a around. So if you look at the I'm looking at the Lincoln team started on the weekend right and the most experienced player sat in the middle world apart lean brick up. So what I tend to find is what well, if we're watching a younger player, they seem to be more expressive and they want to want to do more with the ball, met more of an impact. So what I find is it would be best to put them on your wings. So wingers tend to be better as youngsters in the lower leagues, whereas when you need a bit of when you need a bit of calm, bit of composure, someone's going to dig in it, dig in deep do the dirty work. It is probably better to have that experienced had sought central midfield role, center back role, probably a strike role as well. Fill your wings. Feel your wings were younger, agetic players play press in football, and I think you've got it then. So what do you think that Lincoln are going to say the ways to keep the twenty three year old average squad, or do you think that the doing it the right way or do you think they need to add a bit of experience into the side? I think they're doing it the right way. Another reason for that as younger players are more impressionable. So if a manager comes in and he wants them to play a certain way, they will, whereas a more experienced player will say, well, I know, I've been playing for fifteen years now and I've always played this way. Who We used tell me otherwise, drop me. Yeah, yeah, true, and I suppose as a young player you kind of play we know for you. You see, they are a bit more energetic, the more willing to take people on and the more will they want to impress as well, because it's they've got the career ahead of them. So but at the same time again, but black pool obviously lost to Lincoln. We've got a very, very young squad as well. I think our average age was twenty four and twenty five the back we were all over the place. We are very young back forward and they just know no experience heading their till and where they need to be ten and when to push out and went to get rid of the ball, when to play it. So I'm not sure we've obviously I think we need some more experience, but Lincoln seem like they've currently they've got it working well for them. Well, era Alex Bat fates might be in them in the market for any clock. So dark. Yeah, you've got Luke Garbo and he's he's experienced. He's like what twenty seven or some up now, and he's experienced at a much higher level than league warm and Black Pool, I think. I can't believe he's not starting for you now. I mean now husband got a band he's got to be on. Yeah, well, it's playing tonight in the ARF. I'll trophy currently one little up halftime to Atkinson, but this I will. I want to talk abou a bit more later. You can since my transfer news, but obviously after today's, after Saturday's game,...

...we would desperate first center offend, some first from more experienced defenders, and I'll just say blackpoold made free new transfers this week and I'll go in starting a bit more detail at the end. Right. My next team that want to talk about his whole city. They won again. As well as Lincoln, they've also got a hundred percent when records. They've played for one and four. anyways, your favorite manner scored again, isn't it? Well, I was about to say there newman who we all know. Now, we all know. Well, there we spoke back one last week's episode. Hey, keep a gelicant. Only gold of the game know he's he's looking like he's going to be quite a good quite a good signing for them. He assisted last week's game and scored today, so he's making a good impression, isn't it? Well, that's it. It's score goals. You put a system. As a winder, I kid, that's what you're there to do. So can't we? I think mark, and they know. I definitely think whole of strong contenders to go up the season. Well, they're going to. They've got to be up there in the whole what you'd expect? Nothing less from to be fair, would you? Well, you say that, but at the start, start of the season, isolated them and said there's not a single championship poality player in that team. I said, so, there you go. Well, and they'll fade away. That is that you wanted to fade away, or is that educated? An educated yes, that they're going to stay the way I think. I think the teams are better quality than in the League. To be fair. You know obviously the player very well at the moment and obviously if the key that up, then they'll be there, there about the end of the season. I don't remember your top three, your predictions for that. What was it? I can't remember now, but it wasn't a whole. Can't remember. Actually think I said Black Pool might be an outsider for it. Yeah, I will take I'll take up. Can we can move on then I'll tell it up. I think I said. I think I have some not like Chilton Bristol. Bristol were overs and black pool small like that. Okay, last night it was child to Chilton, Sunder and Black Pool. That's a little bit bear Sunderland doing the top six of the moment. They're doing all right, quietly. Right. Let's go to the go to the bottom of the table and talk about mkdons. See we've not really mentioned day Daw at home twhich which this week, which they drew one one dads. Isn't a bad result really, because it's which we were a team that are definitely going to be looking for promotion this year. Whether they'll get it a'most a sure but that's obviously the plan. Kadon's hown actually would a game yet this season, to the drawn one or with John Caster. There then lost to one against linking, then lost again to nil two crew and then last week they drew at home twitch, which one one, although drawing with down Caster, drawing it tips, which obviously losing against link canoe are looking like a decent side. I've they just had like is that form something to be worried about, as obviously the currently sit at the bottom the table and haven't won a game yet. Would you think they just had a difficult start to the season and they'll turn things around? What you reckon? I don't like him, kdons at all. So just Jack in the just sounded difficult start and they'll turn it around. Or do you think that it is worrying science and you think they'll go down this year because they are currently sat at the bottom with two points, another I haven't won a single game yet. I don't think they'll go on now. I think they've had a pretty tough run the games and it's which they're going to be up there link and obviously sit up at the terrible poncaster, they always do. Relatively well in league one. Crew is probably one they could have won, but again, crew away from home isn't always easy to go to. I think they've had a difficult start. bought. I can't see him push it and get onto me. Are just the most league one club. There's everything. I always get this mixed up. As well as they the franchise club. Or is a see Wi wild in the franchise? So that there the franchise club. You had Wimbledon originally and then it all went its off and they sold the soul became MK Dods. Well, okay, and it moved on. So obviously mkdarms. We're thinking. They're probably had a bit of a harder running in the most clubs and it doesn't really look like it's going to get any easier. They play pumping next week, so it's another very tough test and the obviously don't want to carry on the poor form. But I can't. I can't see him pick it up. Point. So where Portsmouth? But it will be an interesting game. The point definitely up for grabs because Portsmouth of also failed to win a league game front part of the season. But they can do it away. But for some reason they're just not managed to find the form at home this year. You're right, but I think Portsmouth, Portsmouth will get the job done there. I think that one. It depends which Portsmouth Thurn up.

Well, they've been all over the place first of all. Games of season they've been they've been shit, they've been all right, they've been really good, and we know which, which version turns up. Yeah, I mean to be honest, you're right, and it reflects that in the league table as well, doesn't it? They pretty much seeing sit bob on middle set a levels and place played for one, one drawn to lost one. It's very average form, isn't it? I'll go on to the transfer news now. I just wanted to talk quickly about some clubs have not really mentioned. What's you not want to talk? You know, want to think that what I'm going to tell well, I mean, we could take the bottom if you want. Yeah, we'll talk about fleetwood. I. We're not worried about what put form do we think we're going to start picking up point? So that field are definitely going to be picking up point soon, one hundred percent. The for up. The football's there. If you watch the Games we're playing, the right football. We just need a bit of experience, we need we need a solid center las signing, because our problem is the back, for that's the only way we're letting goals. I seem to think that I've seen on twitter U S later in their style of player B I was I was having a bit of a paddy here. It was quarter past five, fifteen minutes after kickoff, a finished and I was just thinking about it as having a bit of a paddy and I started tweeting without thinking and obviously, yes, thrown all your emotions out and I was very upset because it just ruined you. Saturday done it. I'd literally wake up, wake up Saturday morning. I'm doing nothing, just waiting for the three clocks kickoff, because that's what I absolutely love. And then happened. You lose and it just ruins the rest of the day, especially when you lose that manner. you go wonder loop. Then you con se the penalty, one that didn't need to be conceded. Obviously Lincoln score that and then it gets to the eight. I think it was like the eighty second minute, something like that, and we scored again to one, and I'm absolutely buzzing like little proper fist pump and everything. Then it falls to husband. We're just pass it around. Our back Forceh and away some time and husband just passes it straight to their striker and then thinks, instead of trying to tackle him or ushroom to the side, I'll just take him out in the box so they get another penalty and score that to all. And I think it was a cross that. It comes in, starts bouncing the box. There strike, he picked it up, starts he must do about two or three kickops as well keep you ups before he kicks in. And none of our defenders a challenging just absolutely think you'd seeing some day league defendant. Oh, got it while me up and then I was just that we need a striker. Room be day. I found the perfect solution for your defensive problems. Actually, Williams. Actually Williams would not fit the EFL League one, Solary Cup, I don't think. I imagine these wages will be a lot more than the two thousand pounds were allowed to spend. I think it's two thousand pounds a week. Well, he's out of a court. I suppose beggars can't be choosers. Free agent. It's free agent. We wasn't got enough for Cristol city. I love a word with Sadler, captain and experience of a semi final. You Rolls Them. What do you I can bat for funds. Could be having master Williams. Look, he could do a job for us. Say as I say, I'd stick a shirt on and do a job. I won't be seen that in that anyone can do a job for anyone. Could be better than what we've got the moment. Right, we'll move on to transfer us. I don't want to talk about black and losing. It's just getting me angry again. I'm about to tweet strongly worded tweet. So Lincoln say, just as I was turning my ipad on, actually for this, for this podcast, I got notification. Other electronic tablets are available. Yeah, and I got a notification. Lincoln City just signed a forward, Jamie Soul, from West Brom on a short term loan. So the forwards come through West Bronze Academy and it is played. Also just appeared for the England and the seventeen team. So it's quite a young lad I think. I think this is his first move away from West Brom. So be interesting really see how he does in his first taste of men's football. I'm not sure how we'll do and where it'll be a start for Lincoln. But, considering these is a short term loan, I'm assuming Lincoln want him to make an immediate impact. You are just been are to push the strikers, you know, give him some to think about. Understand the short term loan, though. It's October. He's going to go back in January. The large young and this is his first loan up in men's football. But what was it been on loan in women's football before? Sorry, and then you know what I mean, in adult football, men's football? Not but not kids football, boys football. He played. He played a lot in the premier league. Is Premier League to that is called? Yeah, it's play. It's played a lot in that, but he's never played, you know,...

...a professional senior, senior football. Right. So that's that's that's my first transfer, transfer news. I've got three more and everyone needs to get the Tangerine in it spectacles on, because they're all about black poom. We've been a very, very busy club after that shit show on Saturday. So, as I said, we obviously needed defenders up was the first thing we needed. And on the Monday straight after yesterday we sound free new players. So first of all we signed the Nottingham Forest right back, Jordan Gabriel. He joined black pool on a season long loan. This led to twenty two and is featured twice for forest the season already. so He's already featured twice and the one our four games. So we see like a decent signing for league one. Why do you sound like presenting blind date when you're saying that it's twenty two? I want I want you to like I have a positive impression on him. I feel like if I give you that, it's my my responsibility to make him sound good. Does he sound good? No, no, then a shit choll. Then he thought he's a he's a footballer. Right, okay, we'll move on. But pulls and Arsenal under twenty three is captain and Northern Island International Daniel Ballard, and that's on a short term on on that loan ends in January. The twenty one year old center hearth has been in Arsenal's academy since it's eight years old and has already got two senior caps for northern island. So again a very positive signing for the tangerines and it's a good signing. It's a very good signing the lad of twenty one. He's already had caps for northern island. I believe he's being captured in this weekend as well. So yeah, positive suns that loads of experience already. Last sign in is the one I'm probably the most impressed with, and I don't know why, but I'm just impressed this one. So Blackpool made the fifteen sound of the season late last night, fifteen minutes before the European transfer window closed. It's no surprise after the last two signs mentioned that. Obviously we will done desperate strength in the battle line and this sounded, I believe, definitely helps with sound. Icelandic International Daniel Gresson on a two year contract for an underscore speak. So actually paid money for this guy as well, which, even though we sound fifteen players, not a lot of them have come for money. Obviously, the center off the defender brings international experience to bloom for the road. Haven't been called up twice and squad in September two thousand and nineteen. Have you just read this straight from Blackpool's website. No, well, it go carry on. So, yeah, so he's bringing in statil experience. He's been caught up to the Iceland squad in September, two thousand and nineteen, and then one his first cap for his country in January two thousand and twenty, in a Ondall victory of the Canada. And on. How old is it? He's twenty five. So you telling me you're happy about somebody's age? Twenty five its only got one cap for I fleet. You said ICEN lightly didn't be England for years ago. That frigging Helt. Get over it. I got get over it. Still Hurts, still hurts. No, I'm up with this sign and he's plays for I can't mean what club it was, but he plays in the Norwegian Premier League and we all know that for being a you know. We all know that for its football. Oh yeah, churned out. How I'm I'm sure he knows. I'm sure he knows. You're met area offense. All these signs. That Iceland it is. He not ways you from fucking Norway. So sorry, I'm just gonna buy him. He's from Denmark. Is it from Denmark? From dead on the Denmark, but just the day as a whole. No, I knew was dayish. Right, I just got a flags next door. I mean that's even worse in it and they're very similar flags. Right, well, I'll learn. I think that's free. Impressive signings for Black Pool, don't you, considering I've just said about the score line and all other eventsive problems straight away. How many clubs in League one do you know that can come straight away, same week? We need new center as we do defenders. Let's Gone Back Free Him Bank, Sid hold one deals done straight away by buy one of them. Well, even it will be paying the weight. So that's free. Sort of out within a within a week, less than a week. Why is it? Tuesday? Were four days, four days after the game, and we've got free new defenders brought into the club. Not many league one side, especially in covid can bring that in like that, you keep telling yourself. But well, but Paul play its which on Saturday they were meant to play Sunderland, but Sunderland obviously can't play because they've got too many players called up for...

...instational duty. To say this every year, I swear we're meant to play on land every time. The every time it's international weekend we play some land apparently, because we always end up playing them on a Tuesday night. So it's which games bring brought forward. So we're playing them to be a strong test and I'm open we'll see some of the new the new faces on and see if we can find the keep off first clean sheet of the season. Oxford crew, did you hear about this game? Tell of that's because the game didn't happen. Common Right. Yes, about an hour before the game game cop hass boned because of Covid it is. Is it going to be on? Is it not? Because I think it was a crew team. I think three or four of their players got tested positive but then decided they could still play. Not The players. Obviously we've been tested positive. They could still feel the team and about an hour before the game got postponed. That's a shige. was definitely. Definitely we're going to look like they're on the up as well. Now something we're going to two wins on the balls are yeah, brought in. They actually brought in a few defenders last week and looks like they've been doing okaytions. I think. Yeah, they kept the clean sheet this week. So the so yeah, the doing all right, good old wigan, right, he is up with league to Connor. So yes, starting get straight into it. UNTO lead to so I'm going to start from the very beginning by saying Bolton have got their first win in thirteen games against harrogate, beating him to one, surviving a late scare that are get goal. Now I'm going to come onto this game in a bit more details soon, because there was a major shocker in this game. I know you too, ad all know exactly what I'm on about. I don't think it was a shocker. Well, yeah, you was expected, but I just wanted to put mention that at the start to put the bottle of fans out of the misery that I am going to talk about you later. So I'm moving on to some of the other results. Newport county if solidified the position at the top of the table on ten points after beating Mansfield to one to stay unbeaten in the league, along with a massive five other teams who remain undefeated in league. To just crazy at the stage. It's crazy, and I meantal that, isn't it? Sixteens in total, at most a game yet there's a lot of there's a lot of drawers like but you're other ones are you've got newport, sulfurd, Colchester Forest Screen Rovers, also war saw, sorry, and Bradford City work, all undefeated so far. What's all on? Bradford, the dining thing from fourteen foul. They will be ere. They played a game less and they've both Oh yeah to you won one. So with that win, obviously new port of a taking what I said last week about no one actually know when who they are very personally. But in all seriousness they play some really good football this seasons a whole. Actually the playing God football, getting it on the ground, playing Nice, attractive passing football, much like our Friendi and never promised he was going to do, but not delivering. And the math. The manager, Gary Flynn, is a massive Liverpool Fan and he's seems to be getting Newport county playing like the pool, apart from this week, obviously they were Pol losing seven. Two Shiit houses may being down a league a little bit just below newport, are more can. They're in second place despite being this is mad. This in second place despite being on a manus to goal difference. It's crazy, but that's just as a result of the fact that the lost one game five now the one game they did lose, the won all the others. Like you know, one to know. So they're doing well actually, because I think both me and deck very well, maybe all three of US actually, and more come to go down this season, because they've been flirting with it for years. I definitely did. Yeah, they'd be flirting with it for years. I don't they but was early signs that the appointment of Lead to stol war, Derek Adams, the steadied the ship a bit and to this week they're got a one deal win against a very handy, poor dal side who've been playing really well so far this season. So that's a good win. For more come and they're keeping the pressure on at the top. So let's see if they can keep it up. Pret was wrong. Well, one more come yet. National mark the surprise me Morcome, where I think we said our red. We think this is a season they'll finally go down. They're always flating with relegation in but did the turned around bottom til aren't it all on the last week? It's Mente. Yeah, the manager the brought, like I say, it's Derek Adams and he was the manager we've put if our guy, or did very well there, turn play with our house fortunes around, mostly league once start. Now we're very solid, really gone side there. We got into the championship the last season and he was sort of the start of that revival. Son. He knows his way around the league. League lead to. He's been been a plenty times before. So I think it's a really good appointment and obviously it seems to...

...make it a difference. So look, Walker. Well, just before you go any further on that, to inform you that you have even inspired me. Oh, I a big fun the FIFA career more and I've sighted one with our get time. Yeah, Daddy, I'm doing shit, but it's all right, we'll get them. If you signed anyone? We know. No. If I have Ashley Williams Ah that. I wondered how you came up with that before. Yeah, actual, really instree agent quality. These wages like that, Herrick, except hous entire budget for ground a week. Yes, steep laugh, Rogot, Harry got got a lot when you know it's we have like a million suspect enough about life. You for career. Yeah, I know where it's talk about real football. Yeah, so edging down towards Mid Table Now, Chelten and beat late Inn Orient to nail. That was in orients first game back after their covid outbreak, so it's good to see them back now. A mad thing about this game I was wanted to touch on. Is that actually like say about Orian having a covid outbreak. This was the first time that the Orient Squad were able to train together and it was the first time they were able to train together was two hours before the game on the pitch. So the end been in contact with each other at all. But you know, to two hours before the game. So, to be honest with you, probably to nil actually is a decent is a decent result from in that sort of circumstance, I think. Do you not just think the further and further down on the football league was all the more mentally? Yeah, yeah, crazy, absolutely crazy at the moment, isn't it? That Sunday League in it. Do not mean yeah, well, that's also in it. We just rock up and then as mental yeah, sorry, I am drinking a brief. Anyone going around. It's a chaffancy a brew. Anyway, edgum talking. The bruise just totally off the point. I've got into missile a Chi Te. I no longer want to talk to you anymore. I've never heard what I don't even know what that is. What the fuck is the MASSALASI CHI TI? You have a sip of it and it initially tastes like a normal cup of tea and then there's some sort of light we had sort of peppery spice after it. Obviously, the more sips you have them are you drink. It sort of builds up in your mouth. The taste really strong, it's really nice. It smells amazing as well anyway. So let's move on to the Golfest of the weekend. Colchester, three old and three. So you know, there's not much to say about this game because it's also in the scoreline. Really it's a really good old fashioned end to end game. It's probably Oldham's best performance of the season because they looked initially being real trouble, despite the facts that deck had them tip to go up this season. I was going to say, I told you it's American, not a sprint. Yeah, well, there you go. So they've now achieved one point, so that's the moving on up, I guess. They're not. They're not rock bottom now, unlike grimmsby town, although grimsby have played two games less than everybody else, so there's still time for them. It leaves South end still looking in a pretty rough position. They also picks up the first point of the season. I was gonna say they finally got NS. Yeah, a way to Crawley town. It's not a bad result for them to be able, you could call it down or handyside. He did leave it late, though, eighty fourth minute discard to equalize. Yeah, they're they're a bit lucky as well because it didn't play well. Didn't play well or you know, Crawley Down had a lot of chances and weren't very clinical. So they are. They got away with one there, but every point counts. That I got the points. I'm going to set us all out now and say I don't think south end are going to be bouncing back first time of asking. No, think they're going down. Yeah, it's actually going down again. Yeah, definitely. That's my partition. South and will get really get it, and the finish bottom. Yeah, but we did do a bit about south that last week. We said they right. It seems to be a bit of Free Fall. So might not be a bad shout exeter. It would give a regular mension to one again away to Cambridge United. Really good win for them because Cambridge United on one of their sort of main rivals for the playoff places but pushing promotion. So really good win for Exeter. Now let's move on to the main deal with. Everyone's been waiting for Bolton finally getting the win in league. Two to one win or the Harrogate bots. Most importantly, Nathan Delphonso has scored the world. He's ending. I mean it wasn't really in doubt, was it? He's a goal score. This is it. This is it. Proven goal scorer could just when you thought two thousand and twenty couldn't get more, men Sol coronavirus. Australia was on fire,...

America's on fire, trumps the president, Boris shops was a prime minister. Nathan Dulphin. So That's scored. Absolutely insane. What you guys underrating it was? It was clinical. And what? Who? Well, he wasn't. We've already had the same out. It wasn't. You guys underrating now now. It was clinical. Is a clinical, creative striker not having it? Three goals, not last season clinical. Do you think that he has been listening towards the up to his game, based on the fact we were giving him a hard time? Yeah, I need's pretty and wrong, he said, and then he did. He did that on Saturday and I'm sure I didn't see the game, but I'm sure he had some involved in in a wind oil's goal as well. Well, I didn't assist it. It assisted by Crawford, so probably assisted the assist. So you saying? You're saying that delf not even an assistance striking out, is a pre assisting striker. I'm saying that delph is mould see talented and you can score. You can say he might. It may well be multi talented, but one of those talents ain't bloody football you are so awesome down it's what delivered. If the different you got about mutchability in front of goal, as I do this lads. This lads out of full professional career in football. So he clearly is clearly done some right and score of less goals than you've average. Center boat. Professional impression is thats what he is, just an impressed shil of the football. Well, if we move on to the other striker, though, Owen Doyle, he did have a good game, to be fair. He scored one assisted the other, so he's doing everything suspected. Well. The say everything. He did everything expected, everything that game. Prior to that he was shit in the other games. So hopefully he's come into a bit of form for a bobs and fans. Hopefully it's what we want to see. Only thing I will say I'll give bolt and a bit of a break this week. I won't go into hard on them. The only thing I'm going to say is that, despite winning, they only have thirty eight percent of possession. And this isn't remember this is against Harrigate, who are enough, have been playing well, but this is their fourth ever professional game in the history of the club and they've seen more of the ball on your considering every's meant to be playing this passing football. But Fair enough, a win's a win. You've got your put on the points on the board. Let's see if now it gives the players a bit of confidence and see if the voter on from there. So happy days. I think Ari go all spreads of fuels this season. I think they'll learn, they'll do relatively well. Yeah, I think I think the premious they can mix it with, mix it with the big boys, and it's doing them a lot of favors as well. I think the fact that the stadiums are empty, because a lot of time that can be a big step up from the National League into the professionally the amount of fans there. Some players can sort of buckle under that pressure, but the facts not so many. They're nothing too much. Things have changed for him. So good luck. How I got, as always, that good luck how this should if Harroget town get twenty points in fifteen games, I'm going to buy Harroget shirt. Well, that's the bold statement. Will have that. Remember that. In fact, I want to set it a bit more because I want the shot. I think it all goes to plan series. If all goes to plant, football cup gets back in March, should we go to Harriget game? Yeah, definitely. I'd love to go to Harrig again if we can get tickets. Small Stadium it. We'll see if we can film that and of it as another segment like in a way. They yeah, I'm a good share. Yeah right, so har I gets out here we come. Last thing I'll mention. I'm going to mention, if anyone still listening, this is probably the best news of the week, I think anyway. So the only transfer I want to talk about for we to this week is forest green rovers, potentially signed banksy. Oh yes, yeah, for the stadium. And what is in? Yeah, the artist. Yeah, I seen this. This is not so. If signs the gent who, those in the know who said for years is Banksy, Robert Del Najer. So everyone thinks heat. That's the realized the site of the arts banks and if signed him up basically as an artist to raise a where it's a climate, climate change issues, through the medium of football. Now no idea how they're going to do that, but you know, it's been a fun or a screen, not rovers, for those of don't know, or the first ever carbon neutral football team that has ever been yeah, there is some interesting stuff. Yeah, the stadium is totally carbon neutral. It's made entirely recycle materials. And would they've all sorts. This week is bit weird. The trust the running a sort of competition thing...

...about naming the stadium. They've been sponsored by innocent SMOOTHIE. So the stadium is going to be called the innocent blank stadium and they're getting people to vote on what they are the blanks going to be most like this movie. Well, but may shit when it if that's what everybody votes for. That is created its original, isn't it? The innocence movie? Yeah, it will be the innocent stadium, that stadium, face stadium or something like that. Right, just something I'm going to add in now at the end of each podcast. I'm going to try and do it on this there and not on this day. In two thousand and one David Beckham scored that's free kick against Greece to send them to the two thousand and two a cuple yeah, free kicking like the eighty eight minute when it worry absolutely curls, it stoppins everyone. I was remembers in for that game, that amazing free kick. What they don't remember is beck and play Shite that whole game and he missed it out ten free kicks and everyone's getting frustrated with him. Keeps still try to take and I just want to apologize on might be off. Obviously Championship coverage wasn't great this year.
