  • I know.

  • Very exciting indeed.

  • We'll be taking you through all of this week's action, hopefully given you some tips to help build your weekend football bets and also taking a quick look back.

  • That's what's happened this week, gents.

  • Let's get straight into it, Mark.

  • We're sitting fairly close to each other.

  • Once again, my cold is nearly gone.

  • You're still struggling, their minds grown in strength since last way.

  • Carry on.

  • If there won't be catching anything, you that we go again, Stephen Gerald did hope it goes better than what happened after that.

  • Jason, how are you? 00:00:59.730 --> 00:01:0.950 It's good to have you in the studio. 00:01:0.950 --> 00:01:4.550 It's a little bit cozier, but it's keeping us warm in what is a fairly cold studio. 00:01:4.840 --> 00:01:5.810 Yeah, thanks for having us. 00:01:5.810 --> 00:01:10.850 It's It's great to be over and meaty First offense and them hopefully in a few good tips.

  • One there on the pool time.

  • Really?

  • Yes.

  • A bit frustrated.

  • Star in the making.

  • Just mark being nicety.

  • We'll get good.

  • It was Champions League happening.

  • Choose down Wednesday night, Jason.

  • What we will take away from what was a fairly exciting game week, wasn't it?

  • Yeah, it was depressed.

  • Really?

  • With the weekend.

  • Which fire?

  • Obviously it was.

  • It was really interesting.

  • Great watch Champions League.

  • Not great for the bookmakers.

  • All the files, more or less.

  • Wynand, choose tonight, child.

  • She probably did this affair last night, even or as a company, as a position.

  • And personally, we were kind of posed against Chelsea did not result in X.

  • And so it was good mid week for the pointers and go again this weekend.

  • Liam, I usually fully agree with what I see on the back pages of the Racing post.

  • But yesterday I saw everyone backing.

  • I acted everyone really confident. 00:01:59.900 --> 00:02:0.900 But Chelsea had a great run. 00:02:0.900 --> 00:02:3.290 A four month there was surprised people were going against them. 00:02:3.300 --> 00:02:5.830 I think the reason was I mean you look at chose to Chelsea. 00:02:5.830 --> 00:02:7.900 I think 15 almost been before That lacks game. 00:02:7.900 --> 00:02:11.860 But the games they had leading up to that they were quite straightforward opposition.

  • They were in opposition, which we're really gonna test them defensively.

  • Hence, while a defensive record seemed to have improved of light S O.

  • I think going to I act with the players they have in the final third.

  • Like to do some tragic Tadic Quincy promise, et cetera.

  • I think people expected them t crumble.

  • But the winter kneel in Amsterdam is absolutely terrific result in what is a very tight group s Oh, yeah, they'll do their their confidence in the world.

  • A good mark.

  • What's going on with spurs?

  • Well, that was much more life better.

  • Yeah, I mean, but red style will pour her really poor or worse, and I expected them to be.

  • But at the same time, Tottenham.

  • It felt like watching Top Gun say, 18 months ago, just in terms of the endeavor and near the daily Ali made more runs against Red Star, not seen him in about six months, I hope for he's back to full fitness. 00:02:59.420 --> 00:03:2.780 It's been a A long struggle for him on when he makes the runs. 00:03:2.780 --> 00:03:10.730 Beyond that opens up space for so long and for Cain and fill a Melon on Billy has looked a lot better in the Champions League in the as the Premier League.

  • Really, we don't realize just how quick it because we watch it all the time and everyone's how quick and demanding it is.

  • So I think he's just taking a little while to get going.

  • But that was much more to his liking.

  • It was the perfect game for Porter, Tina and for Tottenham, and you know, it's gonna be a lot harder.

  • I am field on Sunday.

  • I think it's fair to say definitely Jason, let's quickly touch on via I'm sure Bruce is at home watching a seething that we're talking about it once again.

  • But I don't know what your thoughts are getting second side of it.

  • Slowly but surely, I mean, it hasn't been a great start for for has it?

  • No, it's it's fighting technology technology used in the right, where will help get to the right results that we want to talk about Terry Handball, which is hungry, too.

  • Classic example for an Irish man.

  • No better. 00:03:58.260 --> 00:04:1.140 You know, you go back to my Maradona from an England point of view. 00:04:1.340 --> 00:04:4.340 Lamb power in the 20 work 2010 Work Hope I know that's different. 00:04:4.340 --> 00:04:5.690 Goal line technology shorts that. 00:04:5.740 --> 00:04:7.290 Oh, no, but they are. 00:04:7.290 --> 00:04:8.770 It's just the way it's been implemented. 00:04:8.770 --> 00:04:12.390 I think we will get more correct decisions on the bigger decisions.

  • If it's used more correctly, put somebody's marginal officer.

  • He calls.

  • You have to pick the point somewhere and only more care with that.

  • We can accept that because there has to be caught off point when it comes off side.

  • But the likes off the penalty, not given to Del affair you against bars.

  • I just don't understand.

  • It heats that English for tongue and went to ground, and he's on the ground.

  • Slide for five seconds hits him about three times.

  • How can someone, a professional referee watch that back and say it's not a penalty?

  • And so I think you need to look at how the implemented I think the other big decision was probably Johnny Evans.

  • I think is a quality defender.

  • Tinky has a chance of getting it and it's the right decision It's accidental by Wood, but it's still a foul, and that was the right decision there, and you know, that's a big difference.

  • It's another three points for Lester.

  • So it's just how would speed implemented? 00:04:59.730 --> 00:05:3.200 I think it needs a look at There are talks about, you know, getting the managers. 00:05:3.210 --> 00:05:3.460 You know what? 00:05:3.460 --> 00:05:17.540 I think it may be appealed to decisions again, but what I don't like about that is everything was mentioned here previously that if there's a last minute order just gonna peel for the sacred that when the decision has given the noise in the crowd, it's only at half the level of what it should be.

  • It is taken from the game.

  • Put there is still benefits that again from having it liking Liam.

  • I'm sure you're probably got the most insight on this at wall of us, because you are with the eye.

  • They are officials or whatever they like to call themselves at the start of the season.

  • What they said on that day, compared to how it's being used at the moment, is that are they using how they meant to be?

  • Yeah, I mean pretty much.

  • I mean, obviously there's the issue of the whole clear and obvious thing, and that's a very muddy area of the people.

  • Still are uncertain of how where that bar is exactly.

  • The other thing I'd say about the way it's being implemented in the Premier League is obviously, this really don't want to be sending referees over to the screen.

  • That's something that the Premier League is.

  • They were quite clear about that.

  • Stockley Park.

  • One thing they didn't want to do.

  • Is there a reason? 00:06:0.230 --> 00:06:2.030 Well, not not to slow down the game? 00:06:2.040 --> 00:06:3.120 Ultimately, obviously. 00:06:3.120 --> 00:06:4.330 Oh, it is being used. 00:06:4.340 --> 00:06:5.870 I think you ate for implement it differently. 00:06:5.870 --> 00:06:8.610 They almost encouraging officials to use the screen if they're unsure. 00:06:8.850 --> 00:06:10.800 Andi, I actually think that's holding back.

  • They are in the Premier League slightly by not using the screens.

  • I think for the sake of the game, slow down by the I R anyway.

  • So for the sake of slowing it down for it for a couple more minutes, getting a decision, right, I think it you know, if the air is going to stay as it obviously you know, you expect it will do.

  • That's probably the way around, sorting it out was about?

  • Sure, that's probably enough.

  • They are chat for this week.

  • I've got one quick Twitter question that's aimed in Mark's direction.

  • This is from guy.

  • If any of you have any questions for our panel, please do make sure you tweet us or let us know.

  • In the YouTube comment section, Guy says, I've always wondered why Mark did.

  • Does both teams have scores his recommendations in the racing post assists rather than over 2.5 goals?

  • It doesn't matter which, why I do it.

  • Always get it wrong.

  • If I don't both teams scoring three nil.

  • If I do overs, it's 11 right. 00:06:57.800 --> 00:07:9.480 The reason I do it in the assistance of my column that some racing post op come on a goes live somewhat on Thursday night in the paper on the Friday is purely That's what the customers wanted. 00:07:9.480 --> 00:07:20.520 When we did some research some time ago on Gates, it'll probably be our backs up in terms of what's a more popular AKA bet on the on the Saturday boating to score certain.

  • The I think in betting shops, at least is far more popular in over two and 1/2.

  • So that's That's why I do it.

  • It was just, you know, it was Supply and Demand.

  • Way had a winner last week on the boating to score 4 to 14 to one.

  • Trouble came in there.

  • We got a guy.

  • Maybe just get better with your selections, right?

  • Let's get straight, you know, over two and 1/2.

  • Probably a slightly bigger price, sort of more often than know ifit's not man City, but I think voting to score.

  • You bet it just feels like it's always running, and I think that's why more people like to do it.

  • Okay, good stuff.

  • Let's get straight into the Friday night fixture. 00:07:58.750 --> 00:08:1.730 Then it's a game between South Hampton on less date o'clock. 00:08:1.740 --> 00:08:3.660 Kick off on this one, Jason. 00:08:3.670 --> 00:08:7.030 Let's start with the odds and then start with your thoughts on this game. 00:08:7.220 --> 00:08:12.700 Yes, so we've so Hampton to to warn the drawer 12 5 unless they're turning into 10 for me.

  • Hasan, who is probably the next manager, come under pressure now only two wins and nine, nor winds at home and where winds that big get was aware to Brighton, who were down to 10 men for about one hour ride back in.

  • And then there were win against Shepherd.

  • You know, it's probably naked.

  • Jeanette forgot.

  • Great call on that much So he's there.

  • A good Y lo and obviously the honeymoon period is long gone and destroyed the place trained implement.

  • We can still see it and the problem.

  • So Hampton of always had his goal scores, and I mentioned before Jay Adams.

  • His second half of last season was really, really pour it out.

  • Birmingham and the still Bartman the summer sort of really, it's Danny Ings is stepping up to the plate.

  • He's got five goals in the last four games, so if things can continue that kind of form, I think so.

  • Hunt them will be okay in terms of lesser, very strong defensively. 00:08:59.360 --> 00:09:1.600 But we've mentioned previously they're not creating much. 00:09:1.940 --> 00:09:14.160 Jamie Manson wasn't fully fit last week against Barney came off after about 70 minutes before about the winner on Dhe wasn't his best game in a while, so I just think at the prices I'd be leaning towards the draw there and we're looking at a goal scorer.

  • It's over.

  • Varity rings.

  • They're starting to to out there and Danny ings just given his recent form, I think I'd probably sold with Annie things over body Liam.

  • I mean, Lester.

  • I was looking at the table earlier, albeit only for a night, but they could go second in the division if they win here.

  • So there's this certainly sentiment for them to go on when South Hampton struggling.

  • Would you make of it?

  • Yes, it formed definitely favors Lester in this game, but I would actually be reluctant to back them.

  • Might might tip for this one.

  • Be both teams to go and over 2.5 goals.

  • I believe James Madison is possibly a doubt for this game for Lester.

  • If he even if it does feature that he could be slightly slightly raw on his importance in that left team, I don't think could be overstated.

  • Despite the strong star Lester, they've only one free of their last 12 away games in the Premier League. 00:09:56.450 --> 00:10:2.750 Andi, I think for that reason is probably best to swerve them, especially with the pressure on South Hampton in the past. 00:10:2.920 --> 00:10:8.040 Come up with some good performances when the pressure is on them, so I would be reluctant to go for Lester win. 00:10:8.040 --> 00:10:15.410 Both teams have scored in all four South Hamptons home games this season on both teams to have scored in free of Lester's for away matches this season.

  • Onda, as you say, they could go temporarily second with victory here so they'll be chasing a win on Don't think that could leave them vulnerable to Southampton on the counter attack.

  • That's good, Marc.

  • I think we briefly spoke about on last week's football post cast, but it does seem that Lester punching above their weight slightly.

  • In terms of starts, you have definitely the dough and seven things shots on target, which for a team that everybody is talking about, it's free flowing side.

  • That's full of flair.

  • And Brendan Rodgers, What pretty foot with a play.

  • And I think they do up until a point.

  • But this doesn't having that many shots, and you Burnley probably feel a little bit hard done by last week that they didn't get something out of that that game, unless there will be very popular with people, they're not looking at those stats. 00:10:57.410 --> 00:11:4.330 I think they'll look at the price and think, you know, I like less than here because if they are going to be a top four Top 16. 00:11:4.500 --> 00:11:7.920 You look a man united going on there are dormant in origin. 00:11:8.150 --> 00:11:10.040 Talk more often goddamit, bright.

  • And you know, if you are going to become a top four top six team, I think these air, you know, you kind of would expect probably closer to even money for this game.

  • The fact that their stats on a low, I think, is why that the bookmakers are looking to get them.

  • I in saying all that about lest I like both teams to score, only mentioned it.
