Participant #1:
Hello and welcome to episode 46 of Sports Church aware we are back on a Tuesday night. Yes, not on a Monday night to discuss. Surprise, surprise, a lot of football, some cricket, and also all the other major headlines around the world of sports. Now, to do that, please help me welcome my co host, Eshan. Hi, guys. So glad to be black. Sorry we couldn't have our podcast yesterday, but we have more news to cover as a result. Well, there's only one place to begin. After three years in charge, Manchester United have finally decided to let go of Olega Sole charge. I mean, in my honest opinion, this is a bit late. They should have taken this call soon after the game against Liverpool, but they had to wait until the final embarrassment against Watford. At least they should have done this after the game against City with the international break. But it goes to show how bad the Manchester United board has been over the last, I don't know, five, six years. Obviously it's too late. I think it was two and a half years too late. But I actually have big issues with how this stacking happened. It was not even a stacking. It was almost like United did not want to fire him, but external pressures forced their hand to make this decision, which I think is stupid because he didn't have the credit to manage a club like United. And it showed from day one. Yes, the interim manager when he came and replaced More, all interim managers have that sport of success. United with the way they're being led in terms of their management, Woodward, et cetera. Any growth sport in terms of victory is treated like this. Progress. And that's how United have been labeling each and every season, right? Like last year, second place was treated as a massive success for Olay's Term. But let's be very honest. You had almost an injury struck Liverpool. You had transforming. Chelsea and City were miles ahead anyway, so not such a challenging second place position for United last season. So I never truly bought into the growth part of it. But I think it was five results too late in terms of firing letting go of all this time. Because let's say, however bad United have been postpokey, they've never lost five considered five to Liverpool. They've never been manhandled by cities so badly. I would even say the 62 hammer thing, that under Ferdy was still a better performance, one with City. So it was inevitable. But I think United have got this all wrong, right? Like now they're signing the term that they've got a temporary manager before they sign an interim manager so that they can find the permanent manager next season. I mean, are you bloody kidding me? This is Manchester United. Not like any other team. I wouldn't even want to degrade other country teams. But this is Manchester United, apparently the biggest club in the world, right? So I really don't understand what's happening. And another point, I want to pose this question to you. Michael Carrick is the new interim manager who obviously I think he's going to be taking over the rains today, tonight, in fact, in the next hour against Villarreal, he was in the staff of Ole. So United let go of Ole, but they didn't let go of the staff. Michael Karen was also part of the staff under Mourinho. Why didn't Michael Carrick get the role when Mourinho left? He was not the term fit enough to be interim once more know left, but now suddenly he is. So I want to understand what the logic behind this? No, there is actually no logic. As you said, this was a very reactive decision. If they were Proactive, they would have taken this decision before the beginning of this existing and they would not have made this so much painful for both fans and Ole. Ole, in the end, in that interview, he looked like Bambi, man. I mean, why are you doing this to this guy? We all love him. Why are you doing this to him? I mean, see, he was totally out of his depth. Yes, there was an initial split of results that did help him, but he was totally out of his depth. The boat should have seen this long time back and they failed to do it. And that goes to show how unprepared and how clueless the people who are working above Ola are. One of the journalists pointed this out that in Manchester United, one of the biggest clubs in the world, a lot of people, in fact, pretty much everyone at the top brass are learning their job here. Ole is learning his job here. Carrick is learning his job here. The sporting director is learning as Darren Fletcher is learning his job here. So no one's an experienced guy who's done this and is doing it again at Manchester United. So this is something that a club of the stature of Manchester United cannot afford to have. So reports are coming out that there's going to be this managerial merrygoround with Porch coming. Yes, with Porch coming to United and Zidane going to PSG. Initially it was Zidane to United, but those rumors were squashed very easily. Now, again, this is what the point is, it's been three, four days Sunday morning, they sacked them. So it's been about two and a half and a half days since you were sacked already. There's so many leaks. What is your PR team doing there? Why can't you handle a managerial switch without having so much leaks into the press? It's a sign of a club that has not been run very well. So I feel sorry for Ole because he's been made the scapegoat of all this. But some of the players have also have to question a lot themselves, Harry Maguire, especially Harry Maguire. Man, one thing, United, as you rightly said, you have to fix their PR team. Now, Harry Maguire used to be, or what I used to think was a really nice guy, not in the controversy, but last couple of months, I don't know what has happened to him. From the Albania, from being arrested in Greece, the Albania celebration, to throwing his captain's armband to be red carded, to saying, I've been forced to attend this press conference after the Liverpool defeat. It's unbecoming and it almost shows that how tough for a job it was for Olive than what we think it was. I think a lot of people think that you've got the world class players. Why not getting results? It shows the value of what is done or angel or T or the relationship guys actually managers actually do in terms of managing big egos in the squad. See again, as Ole, Maguire also reflected what Ole is someone who's totally out of the depth. If tomorrow someone comes to me and say, do you want to be the club of whatever the club captain of Livepool, I will say yes. I won't say no. It's not my place to say no. I know I'm totally not even, like closely eligible for becoming the captain, but I would say yes, but it's the person who's giving that job. It's their responsibility to know whether the person is eligible or not. So on that front, I don't have all of Maguire even talking about the management PR team. Right? United loses to Watford 41, Maguire gets red card and sent off the same night he's been posting pictures with fans outside a hotel in Sheffield when he's celebrating his father's birthday. Now, celebrating one's father's birthday is absolutely fine. I'm not at all saying anything about that. But you understand the gravity of the situation. You're the captain of Manchester United. There is a certain level of decorum that you need to maintain in the public forum. Don't post pictures. But I feel just to end this point, I was watching ESPN SP and I saw Mark Cogden. He made a very interesting point. He said that United ever spoke Fergie have been averse to having leaders as managers who can basically take control of the entire process of managing and managing players, signing, promotions, business, everything like how Ferguson was, how Pepis Clop is. They've been averse to it to an extent. When Ferguson retired. The next day was the day United created that Twitter page. Can you imagine the control Fergie had that he said, I do not want United to be on Twitter because this is stupid. I want to focus on football. So they couldn't wait one day. So that is the change. You don't have football people running the club right now and that is the core problem that United have. And AC Milla and Astronaut also added, but they're now recovering. But United, since Fergie is gone and it's looking worse. So I don't know what the future holds for United and that's very worrying for their fans. Yeah. Now they have to face with Aria, as you can was pointing out in exactly the 25, 30 minutes time the team is out, Bruno Fernandez is not playing. Van Der Peake is playing the number ten role. They're still going with 4231. Harry Maguire is again starting. Michael Carrick is the stand in coach. So all the best United, all the best United fans. I mean, there is a period where it is an important game, by the way. It is important game. It's a must win. We have to win this because Atlanta just two points behind in Florida and they're playing young boys. So, yeah, it's a very important game. And all United fans can do right now is the big players step up and score goals and win the game. So let's go through the other results in EPL. Nothing much changed. The top three still the top three still remain top three and they still continue to show why they are the three best teams in the League right now. If I have to summarize all those three performance, total control, absolute dominance, all three of them, and all three of them had the other team at their will, like if they wanted to score seven goals, they would have scored seven goals. The only thing I want to talk about are the top three teams is Jack cancello's assistant. Oh, wow. I think that has to go down as in terms of the Puskas award. They could give award because that assist is simply unbelievable for people who have not seen it go to hot star. Watch the highlights of the game. I mean, it's just blow your mind with this stuff. And by the way, he's a wing back and with one of the highest assist in the lead. So that's pretty right now. Great. Now let's look at the other results. In fact, the results for the new managers, Eddie Howe Unfortunately wasn't present at the game because he had to isolate because he had COVID. But his team produced a great performance. I mean, it was a draw, but it was one of the most exciting Newcastle performance someone has seen in a very, very long time. Are they the only club left in Europe without a win this season in Europe? I don't know. I have to check that's a good point but definitely they're still the only club in England, at least in English top flight, not to have won a game. Yeah as we are talking, I think Levante hasn't won a game yet. I just checked La Liga. Levante hasn't won a game yet. Good company. You Castles aren't alone there. It's a good result anyways. I mean a three, three against Brentford. Brentford slightly slipping up all the last two, three games. They are drawing and losing games. So there's an interesting bunch of teams kind of fighting for the last three positions. There are seven, eight teams who are in that mix right now. And then you have first win for Steven Jarrah. Two nil against Brighton again, Brighton again after a bright start again have kind of slowed down a bit. Dean Smith won his first game with Norwich against Southampton. He just lost to Southampton two weeks back, came back and defeated Southampton, took revenge immediately within two weeks and they won their second game. Norwich, by the way, Bala can actually do it. They're just three points away from getting out of relegation zone. And if Dean Smith can work his magic, this could be that miracle season we were talking about a couple of episodes ago where knowledge might actually be saved. Very unlikely. But it would be a great story. Yeah. As I said, you have about six, seven teams within that zone. There is knowledge, there is leads. I'm still not very confident where they are going from here. I mean they have a lot of injuries. I agree but I still have a slight worry for leads. I still believe that they'll be safe but we need to watch out for leads. So yeah, that's about it for EPL. At the end of game week twelve, the top three still remain top three. West Ham is on fourth. They surprisingly lost their game against Wolves who has creeped up to the 6th place. Nobody noticed Wolves, they were losing games and suddenly Bam, they are on 6th. That's typical Wolves. Antonio Conte's first win for Tottenham. Those celebrations the way he was high frying single handedly, he was lifting the entire Stadium, the entire players. I wish there was a camera inside the dressing room during the half time team talk. I'm sure Woodward was also wishing a decision had been certain. Decision made a little earlier would have been at Old Trafford. The way Conte was high fying players now like Kane, Harry Wings, Ben Davis. It felt like the players were like chill broke, we just defeated leads. I don't think Harry Wings ever thought he would be high fighting on

leads, SMA Champions

cited. And there were some people who are saying like he's all

Participant #1:
yet. If you have seen Enter, if you have seen Conte over the last five, six years, Conte is that person. He's not faking. That's why it can't last long.

Participant #1:
Yeah. At times you feel he's going to die of a heart attack. Great. So that's about it for EPL guys. In the next section, we'll talk about some interesting games that happens across all the other four leagues. First game for charity, a great win for Inter. Let's discuss all that in the next section.

Participant #1:
Welcome back to Sports. Searcher first victory for Chevy Too as Barcelona manager, I mean, after a very long time, I stayed up late to watch a Barcelona match. Obviously because of Chavez, there was a lot of hype and it was fun to watch. The game. First half was exceptional. Barcelona was really good. It was like watching some of the old Barcelona style, but obviously they couldn't sustain it for 90 minutes. Some of the defending was extremely questionable. I mean, Chavez has a lot to work with, but I see some signs. There are some positive signs. It was a surprise starting lineup to see if someone's been given a debut and he was replaced by another youngster, another Academy graduate. So there are clear signs of what Sabi wants to do with the team in terms of pushing a lot of Academy graduates, pushing a lot of young talent and testing out the entire available squad before he finally settles into, like I said, 1415 players whom we can trust. And Basil one because of a dodgy penalty decision, arguably may not be a penalty decision. Soft penalty, whatever you call it. Memphis Department dispatched it safe one. Basano could have lost. Ralph Thomas had like a million chances. Hit the post, I think a couple of times. Should have scored at least two, three goals, but yeah, avid trees every three Barstone. Will take three points all the time. Now. Real Madrid, on the other hand, had a very comfortable win. Vinicius, once again, amazing performance. He was exceptional. I think the entire team was pretty solid. I don't see a major problem in this defeat. Were there any in this victory? You mean Viva? Sorry. In this victory, my word. Sorry. Granada has been one of our easy opponents over the years. It's 13 victories on the Trot against them, but it was a great team performance, especially coming after an international break, something that generally has been a little bit slow to get started. But the game was all about our midfield trio, like the moderate Cruise custom error trio. Feels like it's like wine. You always feel that this is the season that cracks will show. This is the season where age will now be a factor. But no, when it matters and goes back to default, it's the three of them again and they make Realm take what Realm did just quick. Point is like how Paris and Angelotti, the way they've structured the team is something that United would learn from literally. Each of those players have now a future backup already in place within the squad. You've got Blanco, you got Fede. Well, Wedding, who can take up the customary role and then you've got Kamavinga who can either be a cruise or mortgage. So it's a very well planned team. If you think of it. Things can go away. We don't know, but that's how even a Galactico team can also get things done. So great victory for us other teams. Atletico had a usual 1 million victory, typically associated drop points, which means that now and Sevilla drop points, which means that now we are standalone leaders of the La Liga. Ten points of Barcelona, which is something I never thought I'd say in my lifetime. But it's a great feeling. It's also a sad feeling, but it's great. I live with it. Yeah. So that's it for Spanish. La Liga. Great. And it's a massive week in Syria. Like how I was saying in EPL this week, how it showed the top three are class above everyone else. In fact, even in Syria, the top three teams are actually kind of drifting away from all the other teams. I'm talking about Napoli, Milan and Enter. Both Napoli and Milan entered this game week as the two undefeated teams. In fact across all the five leagues, but both of them lost. Saturday night I was watching Pharmacy was his Milan Super game. Exceptional game. Lava scored I think two goals or set up one goal and scored a goal. Latin scored two goals. It was four three. I thought, wow, I've already watched the game of the week. Next today at night. I saw internally. My God, if you guys haven't watched the highlights of this game, go and catch. This was an exceptional game. It was great to see Bruce Mertons after a very long time. He had a long injury problem. He came in, he scored immediately, a trademark Dries Merton's out of the box curler. But he missed one absolutely glorious chance towards the end. In fact, Napoli missed some two or three chances. They should have won the game. Massive, massive info in there. In fact, a massive week for Winter. They are on third. They have closed down the gap to four points. Now Napoli, Napoli and Miller Winter are on 28 points. Atlanta are on fourth. U win this major wind tunnel against Lazio. So they are on 8th. They're still very long way away from winning the square. I don't think that's going to happen anyway, but at least a win is a win. So as I said, this is an exceptional week for Saria and both the Milan clubs. Man, how refreshing is to see both the Milan clubs playing this kind of football. Amazing, man. It brings us, especially both of us back to the glory days of Syria where you had the great Inter Milan and AC Milan teams and I always feel a healthy area is very important for European football because they are the core that they've always been the benchmark for me. Like real mother fan. Can realm be tinted today? Yes. Then probably we are either very good or this area is really bad the moment. I have doubts. That means that's the fun. So I think this is a great time to be a fan. I'm actually happy that you went to sucking balls because other teams have a chance, because I think that's also very important. Other teams need a chance to get ambitious. Yeah, this is a great week for interest. In fact, on another point, this is a big week for Inter. In fact, it showed the way they celebrated after the victory. This is the first major win for Inter this season under Inzagi. Remember, they lost to Lazio, they drew against Milan, they drew against Juventus, they lost to Real Madrid. So they still haven't won a big game this season. So beating that League leaders Napoli was a massive result, a massive boost for Inter. In fact, they are playing Chakra right midweek Champions League. They have two very important games coming up, which they have to win if they have to qualify. Great. So if you guys aren't following Syria yet, do follow Syria, especially follow the Milan games. They are exceptionally brilliant. They're very attacking. So watch that. Now, on the other leagues, nothing much happened. In fact, Bundesliga, the biggest news happened on Friday night itself, which is buying losing their game against Augsburg, there was more off field issues than on field issues. In fact, Bayern had to bench four players because one of their players, I think Nicolas Solar, got tested code positive. So there were four other players who were in close contact with them, who weren't Vaccinated, had to sit out, had to quarantine, so they had to rejiggle the team and because of which they lost and this became a major issue. There's a kind of a mini rift between the buying players, between the Vaccinated and Unvaccinated players. So there's a bit of things boiling up in Germany, so a place to watch out for on either side. In France, Messi finally scored his first goal for PSG and Sergio Ramos could start against City. If I'm not wrong, maybe he's in the squad. I believe he might start or he might come as a substitute. I'm so sure he's not going to start, especially against Manchester City. I think Pochettino won't risk it if, say, for example, City are losing for the PSA are winning. Clearly you might get some minutes, but it's too big of a game for Ramon to come back and play after many months. I don't think he's played since May, so I don't think that will happen. It'll be good to have him on the quad list, at least. Yeah, but in French League, as usual, again, it's not what happened on the field. In fact, this incident happened on the field, but it's not a footballing incident. This was again a crowd trouble between a game against Leon vs. Marcel. Marcel seemed to invite trouble wherever they go. This time, a bottle filled with water was thrown at Dimitri Pirate. Dmitry Pirate is someone who gets targeted pretty much wherever he goes across France. I'm not sure it's the image he creates. I don't know what he does. But there is this bit of thing that Marseille team members, they get treated by many of the other fans very badly. Again, I'm not feeling sorry for Marseille team. They are also a bit of a rowdy team themselves. But again, this is what, 6th or 7th incident this season alone? Yeah. So Marseille historically has been a notorious place to play their fans. As you know that the entire Stadium is full of all trucks. They don't have normal fans. So I think it's just probably one of the most successful French teams. One of them. So whenever they travel, they just get a bit of payback. And I think this season has just been escalating quite a lot in Liga. This is not the first time this issue has happened. I don't agree with it. Nobody should be throwing bottles, but it's a plastic bottle. And that reaction is a bit like I saw the highlights come on. Our Indian cricketers and our opposing cricketers have been thrown away worse from one credit Stadium. So give it a break. Great guy. So that's about it for all football action across Europe. In the next section, we'll talk about cricket, not the India, New Zealand cricket, but other exciting cricket also happening on the other side of the world.

Participant #1:
Welcome back to Sports. Such awareness this time in cricket. We are going to start with the women's big bash League, especially our Indian batters are having a ball of a time. All the eight teams have played all their League games. So the top four has been decided. But the talk of the town is bothana and Herman Precor, did you catch the highlights? I didn't watch the innings. I only saw the highlights. Wow, man. Wow. This is one for the ages for the cricketing manual. Before I get to the talking about that game, I want to applaud Balla on being such a great poet. When he was introducing this topic, he said, I want to commend the Indian battles. Who had a ball of a time. I've never heard anyone say that in one sentence. But coming back to the match, I think what a game for Indian Indian women's cricket especially. Let's start with Herman free score. I think match winning 88 or 89. She had and watched pro play. Like there was a point in the middle of where she was. Literally every ball was a boundary and every ball was a different type of boundary. Like the thing about Herman's predicting is that she's so versatile. She can slog you. She can hit a boundary with conventional stroke play. She can switch it, she can reverse it, she can do everything. And she was doing all of it. And it was just incredible to watch because here you have this, let's face it, our Indian team looks very small compared to the Aussie players in terms of size and to completely boss them like bossing would be an understatement. It was such a joy to watch and then when you look at the next evening Smithy Mandana. Obviously one of my favorite battles in all of cricket right now including the men's game just because of her style and the way she loses confidence. There were a couple of balls she hit overcover. She was walking down to the fast bowler and smacking it like very massive hidden style of drive and a century. She tied the highest total by a player in the big bias for women 115. Unfortunately it was a losing battle but we have to hold our heads and this is the time. I feel if ever the woman's game is going to use up the Indian men's team this is the time. It's the golden generation which I hope like the Belgian football team wins something. Yeah, kudos to. Kudos to all of them. In fact Herman Creekrow is 66 average. She has coded about 370 orders and 14 games. 18, sixes, 18, sixes. My God she is hammering it all out of the park. So the top four teams have qualified. It's Perth, Melbourne Renegades, Harmon Peak and Jemima play for Melbourne Renegades. In fact those are the only two Indians who are still left in this tournament. Third place is Brisbane Heat and fourth is Adelaide striker. So BBL works a little different. The top of the table are already straight through to the finals. So three and four play against each other. The winner play against number two and the winner play against number one in the final. So what's slightly different than IPL? So Perth is already through for the finals. The playoffs are going to happen I think tomorrow Thursday and the finals on Sunday. So watch out for that. It's on Sony, one of those Sony channels. So watch out for that. All the best girls. This is brilliant. We would want to see more of this. I hope. We have been talking about this even previous episodes. Soon we should have instead of adding two new teams to men's IPL we should have a separate woman's IPL as soon as possible. Now talking about the usual stuff. India defeating New Zealand three nil T 20 series. Let's forget about the obvious points. What did you know about Indian cricket that you didn't know before the series? Wow, that's a tough question. Nothing. It's an easy answer. Nothing. It's the same old same old. I want to say Rauldrod called it. He actually said it. That meaning you can't expect New Zealand to show up mentally three days after losing a World Cup final. So let's not get carried away. It's a good result. Winner the win but let's not get carried away. This doesn't count. He almost said that. It doesn't count. I think that was his first response. That was his primary response when asked the question. So again, it goes to show that the Indian cricket team is in safe pair of hands, someone who will make sure that these guys stay on their feet all the time and make sure that they stay humble and grounded all the time. So that's pretty good. Hopefully we don't see a lot of these and these and middle of the cricket field. I mean, that helped us win a couple of series in Australia, but I'm not sure whether that's going to give us a good image in world cricket. So, yeah, next is I wish this podcast was video. You should have seen Bahla's face. I think he passed out for a second. So there are two Test matches remaining, one starting on 25th November Thursday, and the second one on 3rd December. So watch out for that. And we will also give you updates in the next section. We will talk about F One and other important headlines from the world of sports.

Participant #1:
Welcome back to sports such as Speed Point. The first topic has to be the Qatar Grand Prix. Ishan is there a twist in the tail? Are we going to see a change? I know I hope not. But it looks very likely because this was a massive victory for Hamilton, because after the Brazilian Grand Prix, we thought, yes, but the stepping might take the next two. But doing back to back, it shows intent from not just him, from the Mercedes team as well. And the next two races are also going to be very fast race in terms of a lot of straight and dress moments where Mercedes is the strongest. So it's going to be challenging for what's happened. I don't think he still has an upper edge. There are about five points or six points separating them right now. It's very important. Eight points, eight points. Sorry. It was very important for a step into bag a podium. So second place would do him very well. So if he continues being on the podium, that I think is initial goal, but he has to win one of the two races just to settle some nerves, especially I think if he wins the next one, I think he'll do very well for himself and for the Red Bull. A lot of drama happened in the race. It was an extremely the track, it's cut out right. So the track gets incredibly hot. So there were a lot of puncture tires. So bought us had to retire because he had a puncture midway through the race, which means zero points for Mercedes and the constructors. So that gives Red Bull as a constructor a huge leverage right now with two races remaining. Paris came fourth, which was a great result at the end. But for me, screw the Championship points or anything. For me, it was all about Alonso being on the podium after, I think, 2014. He was always my man when he was at Ferrari and before that at McLaren. To see him back on the podium with Alpine, which is basically Renault, was such a great moment. And another important fact that actually my wife brought told me because she's a big F fun fan is that he was the only driver who was on a one stop strategy, which means that he just fitted once compared to everyone fitting twice in a hot crack with melting tiles. So he maintained his drive throughout the race on one set of tires, which is incredible. Shows incredible driving skill. So amazing race. Can't wait for the next two races. I pray pray that maintains it holds his nerve. But we've seen a lot of drama and Formula One going down to the last rate. So anything can happen. Yeah. Only two more races left. There is Bar in and sorry, there is Saudi Arabia and then it ends at Abu Dhabi. In fact, the Constructor Championship are also very close. Red Bull and Mercedes are just five points away. So that's also an interesting race to look forward to. So all the best to all the drivers. And the next race is on fifth and then it ends on 12th. Isl has also started. We had the fifth game today. There will be five games so far. There are eleven teams. So it goes on for another two to three months. So it's too early to call anything. It's on. Hot star. The defending Champions, Mumbai City started their campaign with a comfortable criminal will against Gova. Other big teams. Chennai won their first game. Atletico Madrid Mohan Bhagan. They also won their first game. Bangalore won their game. So it's pretty early stage. In fact, extremely early stage. So we will cover ISL as we go through over to you Ishan for the ATP updates. So basically the end of the year, end of the tennis season ATP final that takes place, which is the top ten players based on ADP rankings go against each other. And it was Sasha Zarif who came who beat me in the final, which by the way is his second ATP final title. He beat Jockovich on the way. He's looking to be one of the two contenders to replace the top three if the top three ever decides to retire because he's been consistent. He's been winning this clutch games. He just needs to add a couple of Grand Slams to his name and he's going to be there. So great result. Congratulations to Zwedev. He's truly is a great player to watch Medvedev again. He reminds me Mathew reminds me he's not Russian, but he reminds me of when Bala and I even both of us were young. He reminds me of that kind of a player. Consistent and tenacious when it comes to tennis. So great youngsters playing off. So it was great watching that. Looking forward to the new season of tennis. That's about it for Episode 46.
