Speaker 2: I want to be like you Tucker.
Speaker 1: No, that’s not bad. Yes, that’s actually pretty good.
Speaker 2: Have you got a friend to meet you?
Speaker 1: Oh, there we go. There we go he was just looking down his normal bedtime playlist. What’s it with you Kristan, Newcastle two, Hull City three.
Speaker 2: I think honestly Newcastle just completely contributed on the downfall here. For some reason defending was associate, attacking was barely decent. For the opening still at 25 minutes they started spraying it around with real [inaudible 01:37:15]. It was the 4-3-3 that I would argue had previously contributed to New Castles best stand down party in the season they finished fifth. I imagine the hope would be that it doesn’t can it in the same way that he hid last time when they were beaten. Then again [inaudible 01:37:35] he’s someone who is barely more technically adept than his predecessor Donnie Simpson but on a defensive standpoint he’s not nearly as reliable. He’s a little bit one paced and you can argue he was at fault for two of the goals yesterday. In fact, I actually don’t know how many he could get a free header in the penalty box tells you there’s some kind of problem in that defense.
It’s something that needs to be rectified and it’s a quite perplexing situation given that when Pardew started, Newcastle’s new defense was the shining light of his coaching. Now it seems that in fact they can attack what they can’t defend. So really consistency is the order of the day and from a whole perspective, he attempts to say, I thought they were very good on the counterattack. I think and Bruce said afterwards, if they can keep the core players, I’m thinking Huddlestone, Livermore and Aluko fit over the course of the season I think that it should be quite comfortable when saying it because in particular Sone Aluko was very impressive. When you consider he’s come from Scottish football, I remember reading he provided – his family, sorry, had given up their savings so he can fund his move to Rangers. You do have to appreciate the immense journey that guy’s come on. Was also famously offered a trial by Juventus. Quite how that came about, I’m not entirely sure. He gives them that little X factor, gives them that dash of creativity they need in the final third. I didn’t really see any other player offering them that so if he gets injured, I’d be curious to see who fills that void.
Speaker 1: Great result for Hull City.
Speaker 2: Wonderful result for them. An important role when early in the season. You need results like that early on just to establish yourself and get yourself that little buffer on the teams below you. It shows they can do it because they can quickly transition thanks to having Tom Huddlestone who at times yesterday was playing the kind of [inaudible 01:39:37] that made you realize why he was so highly rated. He really can distribute a ball in a variety of different ways with a real quality.
Speaker 1: I’ve moved on from football now guys, I’ve just started coming up with Disney songs that are football related. I’ve got some. Anyone else wants to join in? I put them in the bottom of my note you can read along with me. I just can’t wait to be Ledley King.
Male: Oh God.
Speaker 1: Anyone, can you feel the Vogel love tonight? I like the can to fell the Vogel love tonight. I think that one’s pretty good. I always thought – if you remember The Jungle Book? Anyone else remember The Jungle Book? Great film. I imagine Damien Comolli singing “Trust in Me”, no?
Male: [Crosstalk 01:40:23] yes.
Speaker 1: Yes, it was sung by a snake, yes.
Male: I can show you the way.
Speaker 1: Yes, I imagine John Henry sitting back and being like …
Male: [Crosstalk 01:40:36] …
Speaker 1: Shining, shimmering something …
Male: How you got the eyes when he was trying to hypnotize people.
Speaker 1: The Princess Jasmine look?
Male: [Crosstalk 01:40:47]
Speaker 2: We were singing something from Aladdin.
Speaker 1: Yes, so either way the references can – Beauty and the Beast? Of course, [inaudible 01:40:58] , the beast. I’d imagine some sort of [inaudible 01:41:02] reference in “A Whole New World”. Can’t think of anything else right now. If you have any – maybe Pinocchio, I imagine there’s a Pinocchio in there somewhere..
Male: [Crosstalk 01:41:11]
