Here's a God of the game. See, Ronaldo is happy, players are happy, fans are happy. But is it just a PR victory for Manchester United? Are Arsenal fans living their worst ever night? Where a five nil whooping was the second worst thing to happen this week? Mba Pay is staying in Paris and he confirmed it by scoring two goals before Messi's debut followed by photoshoots. Post Ronaldo era hasn't been kind for Juventus, Harley to dockman's rescue and yet another batting disaster at leads. Let's go. Welcome everyone to episode 28 of Sports Church. So to discuss all the sports action that happened over the weekend and obviously to discuss the transfer saga or the transfer or the return of the hero to Manchester United, we have Esan with his first time on video in a long time. Hi guys. This specially for Christiano so that you can see my face and smiling. Thank you. Okay guys, English Premier League is actually over Manchester United. I wanted at least that's how it felt looking at the way United fans reacting all over the world over internet and everything. But hey, why not? It is a massive moment and if you are a fan you have all the reason to celebrate. I mean Christiano Ronaldo is arguably the greatest player to have ever played the game, arguably the greatest of this generation and he is your boy, he's coming back home. So there is a lot of reason to celebrate. But Bala, before we get into the main thing I want to ask you a question. Do you think Ronaldo is the greatest ever United player? Out of what I have seen? I'm not talking the times before. I have seen back to the BuzzFeed and Charlton days. But I'm saying in the last two decades. Two decades. Yeah. He's easily like in terms of raw numbers and output, he's easily the greatest to me. So you're Trumping in Wayne Rooney. Yeah. Because Christian Ronaldo won a balloon door with Manchester United. That in itself is an individual awards bro. No, I'm saying that his performance with United in that specific time, within the specific time is tremendous. Like if he had spent as much time as Rooney he would have trumped pretty much everyone else. Even Cantana, even everyone else. Great. So what was your reaction? I mean I know you're a United fan. How did you feel? I think it's a direct relation. If you're a Real Madrid fan, you generally tend to like United and vice versa and Barcelona to Arsenal. Not much to like about Arsenal by the way but still I was really happy because I knew for a fact he's never going to come back to Real Madrid. We are not on that project anymore. It was scary to think of Ronaldo potentially joining Man City. It would have made a lot of sense for City but it wouldn't have made sense for Ronaldo's legacy because one thing that Ronaldo likes over accolades is adulation and he would have literally lost half the population of the world as fans like his Instagram fan count would have followed would have declined by 50% or something if that would have happened. So he made the smart choice. I don't know if City was ever in play. I've been reading reports, etc. City had shown initial interest, but they were actually never made a serious offer. I think United just got spooked by the pressure they would get out of. Meaning anyway. The fans don't particularly like them, but the pressure and hate they would get if they had not even tried going for Ronaldo. And once they did it was always going to happen. And United were very smart about it because they made an announcement that welcome home Christiano Ronaldo about five days ago when the world went crazy. But he actually signed today and they made another announcement. So very good marketing strategy by Man United, but I'm so happy man like Ronaldo back in the Premier League is just insane. I hope he does well though. Yeah. I mean I love all the Euphoria and everything, but I'm very sorry. I want to slightly bust this bubble right now. See, I understand that it's a great PR success financially. It makes every sense. I mean, there is no point that the generator is costly or not. It's going to bring you all the money. And that is where I have a problem. Because the only entity that seemed to get a win out of this deal, like a confirmed win out of this deal is Glazes. Because no matter how bad it goes on the field, Glazers won't feel bad because they would have got their brand value back. Like Manchester United has a brand value. Sexy again. After all the protests that happened two or three months back, their share prices have already increased and there is no point in talking about the T shirts. The jerseys head on, it's going to skyrocket anyways. So Glazes are a clear winner in this fans at this point of time, they're a clear winner. And I believe no matter how this turns out, the Euphoria will remain. Like seeing Ronaldo back in a Manchester United shirt. Doesn't matter whether he scores 20 volts or 5 volts, it doesn't matter. I think that's the main point. Like Lasers can say hey, I got you Ronaldo, what problem do you have, right? Which fan will say your transfers were bad? Like when you've got Jadon, Sancho Raphael Varane and Christiano Ronaldo transfer in a single transfer window, meaning you'd be pretty crazy to complain. It can't go that bad with all three players. So I think Lasers have actually pulled out quite a coup here. They're not spend shitloads of money, to be honest, on the stature of players they've got. But I think overall, as you rightly said, I won't extend this, but I think it's a win win for everyone. Yeah, but the only point is, I was going through an article written by this journalist called Jonathan Wilson. So he brought in certain points. That why Christian Ronaldo, in a sporting sense, like on field, may not provide as much success as someone expects. I believe part of the United fans also think that he's not going to, like, suddenly make Manchester United into a title contender or a Champions League winning contender. He's not going to improve the quality of the team in a direct way. But what he can definitely do is bring in a lot of set a lot of standards inside the dressing room in terms of training, in terms of commitment, in terms of mentality. So imagine someone like a Greenwood, someone like a Rashford, someone like a Sancho. They will feed a lot of him in terms of how he trains himself, how he presents himself, and how he takes care of himself. I think that is where there will be a lot of value add, but I really don't see him. I mean, he will have his moments. There will definitely be a moment where he will score a goal against Liverpool and Old Trafford, or score a goal against Manchester City and Adhbi or score an important winning goal against some big team in a Champions League game. But all in all, in a sporting sense, this may not be that much successful. But as I said before, from by taking every other perspective into consideration. This is a definite win win signing. Yeah. And that's what I think you make a valid point there in terms of the professionalism and the standards Ronaldo will bring in. And not just Ronaldo, let's be honest. Raphael Varan, who's won at all, he's just 28, but he's had more Champions League titles than any of the Premier League teams combined. That kind of standards with all the young players coming in from the youth, in terms of just being around them, practicing with them. And obviously, Ronaldo, Rafael Varana played together. They'll see how people who won everything play together, and that will actually motivate a lot of these youngsters to actually take their game to the next level. So, yes, you're right. I'm not expecting 40 goals from Ronaldo this season, but what I'm expecting is everyone else around him to become better players. Yeah. Hopefully Fred also becomes a better player because his position has become extremely crucial with Ronaldo in the team. Great. Now let's hope this brings in a lot of happiness to United fans and not Indian sadness. So moving on to the EPL results this time, talking about Manchester United, we saw why they might need someone like Ronaldo. When you saw the game against Wolves, they were pretty much it for a very long time and finally managed to win one nil, which is such a kind of a controversial decision in the end, but I'm fine with it. I don't have any problem with that decision. Whatever it is, it has happened. Did you see the match? Yes, I saw the match and I want to give a big shout out to the Wolf's team. They've lost every single game this season. But in all of the three games they've been the better team and especially against Man United, they were outstanding, like they played so well. They had great chances. Adama Trayore was unplayable, unmarkable. But I think the man of the match was David. He made one of the saves of the season, a double save, especially guys, if you see the second save, which is complete reflex, unbelievable save. But these are wins that will actually make the difference for United. These are the types of wins that United in the past under Oliguna Solschar have found it difficult to do like tough games, away games. Can they get just that one goal and keep a clean sheet? That started to do that. But you're right, Jadon Sancho had a crap game. Let's be very honest here. He had a very bad game. Bruno Fernandez again, absent pokba, couldn't do very much on his own. Kawani played. But if there was no ball, he's a proper out and out striker. If you don't give him any service, he's not going to do very much. So. Bulls did very well to contain United, but Mason Greenwood, man is finishing. His finishing is unbelievable. Left foot, right foot. He somehow slots the ball into the back of the net from any random angle. And that's what happened with this goal. Yes, you're right. Controversy. It could have been a foul, but the play went on. We said it's not so United will take the win. Yeah. And the other game that we were all looking forward to was Liverpool versus Chelsea. It ended one each. It was quite an interesting game. In fact, first half was extremely brilliant. It was a proper top of the head clash. But then that controversial red card decision towards the end of first half kind of shifted the balance of the game. The second half where Chelsea came out with one single aim in mind that we are going to defend. And boy, they defended brilliantly. Like it was a spirited defensive display. Little bit on the Liverpool's performance wasn't really happy the way the front three performance. This again goes to show, while Liverpool need to sign a very good forward player, if either sign a good player or get the best out of Miramino and Oxplate Chamberlain. But I don't think Clop has any trust on these two players. It looks like it doesn't trust a lot from these players. And he started with Firmino, brought in Jota. Liverpool were okay. But again, Chelsea's defense was immense. With ten men, they were amazing. Yeah. Just too quickly and I think you summarized it pretty well. But just to add to that, I actually felt that Liverpool improved after Jota came on for me. I noticed in the last couple of years there's been a little bit of a decline in his performances. False nine kind of thing has not probably been working. And what Liverpool really lack is a better version of Tiago Ala CanTRA. He has just not shown up consistently for them. He's coming off the bench. He's not been giving a starting role. But when he came on midway through the second half, I thought ten men. He actually made his debut against Chelsea last season when Chelsea were down to ten men and he absolutely destroyed Chelsea. And that was, I think that the thing that Clop wanted to do and he didn't do too much. He had some great balls, but not too many intricate passes that actually broke the defensive line. And I think that's the key. They're trusting Thiago to come good. He has to come good if this season is going to be successful for Liverpool. Yeah, Chelsea is getting really scary right now. They look really strong. Definite title contenders, but talking about title contenders the other game,
just before that game, there were two statues unveiled outside the Stadium of David Silva and Vincent Company. And then there were four statues inside the Stadium as Arsenal defense.
I was outside at a friend's place watching India was a single. Let's talk about that later. We'll come to that later. So I suddenly realized the matches started. We changed the channel terminal within 1617 minutes. I was like, okay, well, let's change it's. Like, yeah, we know how this going to go. And within like 15 to 20 minutes, I got a notification saying that Gandhi actually the unit has been blade completely along with the script. This is what happens to Arsenal when they collapse. Jacob gets a red card and then they concede three more goals. But if you missed the start of the game, the first ten minutes, Arsenal were actually dominating. That's some good movement. They had good forward play with Obama getting into the act, et cetera. But the moment City scored, I think 404 error control. All delete and Explorer happened to the Arsenal team. And then it was no way back, meaning I feel they were lucky. It was not worse because the amount of chances man City had and they were taking it very easy. In the second half, they were literally strolling in the park. But if they had really been in that mood where they want to destroy somebody, it could have been double figures, man. It was really scary and it was very embarrassing for all the Arsenal fans and I know a lot, but bottom of the table, what do you think? Negative nine goal different. Yeah, it's really sad. And even sadder is put in them are on top of the table where they haven't considered a single goal and Australia haven't scored a single goal for the first time ever in their history. Like about more than 100 plus years of history of the club. They have never gone without scoring in the first three games. This has never happened. So it is really the worst time to be an Arsenal fan. I mean, they're talking about Tottenham. They defeated Watford one nil yet another one nil victory. I mean, I still like Tottenham. They're doing better than what we thought that they'll be. And they have produced three clean sheets without even Christian Romero being finally completely inducted into the team yet. But I believe they will slack off like October, November. I don't see them continuing this run. The funny thing about Tottenham is obviously great results for them is that they are actually now playing like a Mourinho scored after Mourinho left. Yeah, how they should have played other quick results actually. There were lots of draws this week and Castle to Southampton to an exciting game. West Ham two Crystal Palace, two Aston Villa, one Brentford, one Brentford haven't lost a game yet. I mean they're doing pretty good. Burnley one leads one Leicester City one two, one against Norwich. Everton one, two against Brighton. So that's about for EPL. And as we all know, it's the international week. So there's an international break. But yeah, there are some issues going on between independent configurations and the League that leaks are not allowing players to get into red flag contains. That's getting a little ugly. So we'll talk about that later and not now. So game week three, la Liga had a lot of action. In fact, the last game of the week, which was Atletico Madrid, was Villarial. Oh, I can see Sharon already doing double face. I saw Monday 95th minute. I mean I have seen a lot of own goals. Like I watched football for 1520 years. I've seen a lot of own goals. This one is right there on top. Like what, 15 seconds for the last whistle? For the final whistle. Can you explain it? Can you articulate it?
I can't even describe it. I was watching the game and I was like, yes, Atletico are losing title favorites for the title. They are the ones dropping points. We have not lost as yet. And then a random long ball by I think lady or somebody into the Villarial box. Nobody was there. There was literally no Athletico player even close to it. I saw Andy decided to smartly chest the ball to rule who is the keeper by the way? I would put a lot of blame on the keeper for his positioning. His positioning was atrocious. He was like somewhere off and he chested the ball straight into the back of the net. 96th minute in a way equalizer. And Simone, the bloody guy starts celebrating as if it was his brainchild. He knew Isa Mendy would do this the way the celebrations were. It was a little frustrating for me as a Madrid fan, but yeah, they got the result. They saved their answers again. Yeah. Now talking about the city rivals, real Mudra. They had an impressive one against Real Madrid. That to an away game after considering three goals in the previous game. I think Carlo Ancelotti's message was very clear this game. Yeah. I think a very solid defensive performance and what actually changed actually helped us solidify defense was he put Alaba back into center defense. Alaba has been playing wingback since he joined Real Madrid and I think now he's found his fixed. I think Anchelotti said it after the match as well. I like Alabama, my center back and that actually made a difference. He was brilliant. The player who had almost like a comeback story Isco is looking fit as a fiddle. I don't think it ever looked this fit playing really well with the ball. He's not slow, he's passing the ball, creating chances. He's become really good like he used to be many years ago. And it's something about anchovy man like Bailey has started every single game. Everyone thought he'd be on the bench. He's also taking chances. He scored a goal in the last game. Obviously Carvajal, if you saw the goal, scored a brilliant goal, which was the winner. Unbelievable finish. But Madrid actually dominated the game from the start from the get go. One nil probably is a little deceptive, but it was all for Madrid to play and win. So it was a great result. Yeah. The other club, the other competitors that are in the news for all the wrong reasons also won their home game against Hetafe 21 where HeavE's goal was called by an ex Barcelona LaMasia player and assisted by another ex LaMasia player. It was like kind of in your face for Barcelona, but yeah, members profile showing again why he is a very good signing and he's doing really well. The second goal was brilliant. I have a problem with Barcelona. I think they have a problem with ideal worship. It used to be Messy's team and it's now becoming Dupai's team. If Dapai had not come, I think both of us were very unsure about how Memphis depart because especially with his transfers, with United, et cetera, how he would do. But I've never seen him play with such confidence right now and it's actually become worse for Griezmann. He's absolutely useless. I've seen the highlights. He barely had the touch of a ball in the game. But man like great goal again. He's scoring great goals and it's all to do with the confidence he has at the end of game victory. We have no teams with all three victories, so the first six of the top six all have two victories and one draw. Madrid, Sevilla, Valencia, Barcelona, Atletico Madrid and Mallorca, who is actually back in the League PK's business, which actually brought the rights for the French telecast in Spain, had a record viewership. Actually, this is the first time ever it has crossed a certain million viewership for a friend. 6.5 million viewers. Yeah. Leonel Messi finally made his PSG debut. Guys, that's the game we are talking about. It's about Ram. I hope I'm pronouncing it right. I mean, we're still processing this. It will take a few more weeks for us to get into terms with little Messy playing in a PSG shirt. I saw the game. I saw what, about 80 minutes or 85 minutes in the last five minutes? I went to sleep. I couldn't take it anymore. But yeah, PSG one tunnel Embape Abras like two goals, amazing goals. And it looks like he's going to continue with PSG this season unless something dramatic happens in the next few hours of the transfer window. He came in on the 65th minute Messi. He replaced Neymar and it was more or less like a preseason game to him. Did you see the opposition goalkeeper taking a picture with his kid? He took his child also and took a picture with Missy and I think that's great. I heard a lot of people like experts, et cetera, put a lot of shade on it. I get their point. It shows a lack of respect to the home team, home fans, etc. If you're hiding, we're shipping somebody. But it's fine, man. Like, when is Reim going to play with Messi against Messi? And I don't want to look too much into it, but what I found really funny was Herrera, who came on alongside Messi, posted a tweet saying that I've never been applauded so much for coming being subdened in my life. Yeah. And that was pretty funny. Yeah, I saw Messy. He was okay. As I said, this is his first competitive game. He's playing after the Copa America finals. He had zero preseason. I think what he did was very smart. He didn't try to do too much. He kept only made simple passes. When you reached a certain level in excellence, you don't need to show off. He didn't have to do these step over and Solar runs in slalom runs. In his first game, he just kept it simple just to get the hang of it and his time will come. Yeah, I think League. That's about it. We don't want to discuss much about that other than Betsy now in Syria, post Ronaldo Hara started horribly for you. I mean, they lost one nil to a newly promoted side Empoli, and it was a horrible game. I didn't watch the game. I only saw the highlights and I really didn't see you were doing anything in this game. It's a horror show and if this continues, there'll be a lot of pressure on Allegory. I mean, who knows? But if you look at it, if you look at it, when allegory at his last tent, he started pretty similarly. He lost a couple of games in the beginning of this term. That's a very Allegri kind of style because it takes some time to just get the team to play like Allegri, but yeah. Meaning if you look at the team right now, it's quite weak you won't associate the squad with a normal powerhouse of a venture squad, they're probably the best player right now. When you look at form is Morata. And that's saying something like, if Morata is the most informed player, you've got to be worried. Whereas the Milan sides and the Rome sides, they all continue with their 100% record. Mourinho celebrated his victory with a massive pizza. He posted the video on Instagram. Laxi also had an impressive start. Six one. Immobilize Cordiatric. Both the Milan says, as I said, have started with two victories now in Bundesliga. Dortmund almost screwed up the game against Hoffenheim. Like almost. But a last minute spectacular winner from Holland saved them and they won three, two. I saw this game, I was like, same, older, but these guys are doing it again and they're going to be a lot of pressure. But in comes the hero. Holland scores the goal. That's this crazy monkey celebration, and it was a great game and it is a much safer victory for Dortmund. I mean, if they had lost this game, things would have gotten a bit ugly, actually, especially before the international, especially this was at home and the fans were getting a little antsy in the last five minutes of the game because this is not what they expect. But Holland came up clutch, and I think that's something I need to point out about Holland when you do a comparison over Mbappe. Mbappe has not so far been clutch as much as Holland has been in the last couple of years. Right. That would be a differentiator eventually. Down the road, four balance each down the road, talking about clutch and scoring goals. A familiar scene in Bundesliga where Lewandowski scored against Hertha Berlin, where buyer put five. Just when we thought, that, okay, Buy and are looking a little shaky. This could be an interesting season. Bam, five girls cut them. Match over. I think for Levandowski, you should start the season at minus ten and you'll still end up being the top scorer in the Bundesliga. Meaning I've run out of words. We've all spoken about Lewandowski. It's our 28th episode. We spent about 15 episodes talking about not having words for Levondowski's. Number of gold and the amount of gold is gold. It's insane. And again, it's another season and I actually feel that City missed a boat here by not going in aggressively for Lewandowski when they lost Kane. I agree. I totally agree. Livestick are not having a great time. They just lost their captain to Buy in Munich. I mean, in addition to losing their coach and their center back, they lost one to Wolvesburg. Wolf on top of the table, three wins. As you were saying last week, they are a team to watch out for. I mean, you can't just ignore them and they're in the Champions League as well. They're going to be in one of the easier groups, so there could be a long run for them. I think it's not a coincidence that Arsenal was a city and the India England Test match was happening in parallel pretty much at the same time. What an interesting analogy. It was like, universal way of saying that no matter what you think, how confident you are, the inevitable will always happen. I mean, we started the day at 215 for two, like looking all confident. Pujara and Koli 19 and unbeaten partnership. I was like, oh, this looks good. We are in for a very good session of cricket. But, yeah, in came the new ball and what happened was. But what baffled me, Bala, is the amount of Nicks we've had in this series and especially in this game, the number of caught behind catches in the slip, it's unbelievable. We're just prodding at everything and there's no game plan. I actually was pretty confident India would crumble after that on day three. Day three, right, day three or day four? Day three. We started day four, day three entered at 215 for two. Day four, day four. I was pretty confident that they would crumble because that day three was almost like an anomaly. You get out 78 all out, stupidly. And then this unbelievable partnership that happened for when we were 215 for two, I didn't think it would last. It's not going to happen. And this is literally, as we were saying last week, it's a repeat of the India Australia series, but just in the other way around. But I think it's a reality check. India needed one good thing out of it. Is Pujara got notched up finally a score above 50 91. Unfortunate not to make a century. Only got a half century finally, at least we know that he remembers how to back. Do you see any changes in the next game for us? As it stands, what I have seen so far, Ishaan Sharma could be replaced either, with Ashwin. They're definitely trying to get Ashwan back into the mix. So hopefully Ashwin and in, place of Ishan Sharma, I don't see any change in the batting. I mean, Ajinkyahana, I don't know. I think they will keep him. They may not drop him, but he looks like he's really making it difficult for himself. Yeah. He's the only player, I think, who looks pretty vulnerable right now. What about Punt? Punt has been horrible. Yeah, but I think he will be there. He will be there. Who's the replacement keeper. Kale Rowe put Kale round on. Yes, but I'm not sure my Test match, 90 over scale. Rall keeping, I don't know. I don't know whether Cole or Shastri Trust is keeping skills that much, at least in a test match. Odi 25 is batting for sure. So India, as we said, started day four at 215 for two, but ended up losing eight wickets for 63 runs in less than 20 hours. Robinson picked up five tickets, I think Overton picked up two. I think Moynally picked up one, so on and so forth and Anderson picked up one. So the next game starts I think on 2nd September in two, three days time at Oval. And that's the last game and pretty much a decider. So if India wins, it will win the series and a lot of points for the World Test Championship. I see what you did there. I see what you did there, don't you?
After the success of Summer Olympics, our Indian athletes are continuing their impressive performance in Paralympics too. We already have ten medals, guys. I mean it's Tuesday, 31st August. We still have about four, five days left and we are already ten medals up with two golds, five silvers and three bronze. We were talking about bavina Patel during our last episode. She went on to win silver in women's single stable tennis. But the gold was won by Avni Lakra in women's ten meter air rifle. A 19 year old who became the first ever woman to win an Olympic gold for India both Summer and Paralympics. This is incredible. And to continue that we had Sumit until who created world record thrice in men's javelin throw and swoop the gold medal by a great distance. Amazing performance. And we had other impressive performances in men's high jump by Nisha Kumar. Devin Rajajariya from men's javelins. In fact in the same event we also had Sundar Gujar who won the men's throw bronze. Yoga Katunia and men's discus throw silver. Singera Jadana men's ten meter air rifle pistol. Maria Panthanka, his second medal, he won I think a gold in Rio 2016, he won a silver. And men's high jump. Sharat Kumar same event won bronze in the same men's high jump event. I mean this is incredible. As an Indian who have been watching Olympics for a very long time, every time I open Twitter I see a metal alert. I mean this is an amazing feeling. I actually hope that by the end of this event we go above 30 in terms of metal because that'd be great. And also we've discussed this. I just hope that these guys are just left alone when they come back home and focus on another event so that they build their become better athletes and go for gold again, not just become a media charade when they come back and they're really sad. So I hope they left alone. Yeah, definitely. And also it's pretty encouraging to see the kind of responses at least I see on social media. Maybe I follow a lot of sports account. That's why I see. But it's definitely more than what I expected. So great going guys. Keep supporting and let's hope we bring more metals. Yasha. What happened with the F one? I mean by the time I switched on, the race is over. Nothing happened, bro. That's what happened. It was like London, like a test match in England. What happened? The Belgium Grand Prix went for practice and qualifying. It was really bad. It was raining really badly. Qualifying actually was going to be canceled but they went ahead with it in almost zero visibility. If you saw the highlights, Landon or is in fact crashed his car in the last couple of minutes of qualifying due to low visibility and in fact, 30 seconds before, he had actually went into the combos and said, I can't see anything and he was very lucky. It was quite like a scary crash. But then the race day happened and just by the way, Williams was second in qualifying, which is after about five, six years they've been in the podium in qualifying. Russell was amazing. He probably if you see the qualifying, Russell did such a great job and it was sad that the race didn't finish or didn't even start. But I feel for him it's great because he probably wouldn't have ended up in the podium. So what happened, guys, was the race just couldn't proceed. The rain was so bad. They did a lot of testing. In fact, it was they deleted by almost 4 hours. They were showing pit Lane crew playing poker, waiting for the officials to start the race. But eventually they had to cancel. So what happened was what happened? Russell and Hamilton were one, two, and three in the qualifying. Got one, two, and three as a podium finish. So they will get the equivalent amount of points, which is great for Williams, amazing for red Bull, for stopping because he had a down phase where Hamilton and Mercedes were taking the lead. So this is great overall, but sad. Belgium gromfrey has always been spa with what they call it has always been a very exciting race. But yeah, onto the next one. All right, guys, so that's about it for this episode. Looking forward to the next episode where we will do a full transfer round up. I mean, just to remind you guys, the transfer deadline will end in another, like three or 4 hours, I believe. So once that's done, we'll do a quick round up of how the teams performed in transfers and we also give our own predictions and we will cover more Paralympics as we win more medals. So until next episode, it's bye from Bala and bye from Ishaan. See you on Thursday, guys. Thank you, everyone, for listening.
