Referring to Rick carstorp who was poor In this game and also who at the weekend After the the latio defeat in the Darby When all the Roma players went this Ritual that they have in Italy and in Germany too after the game you go under The culture where the Ultras are and you Either soak up the Applause if you've Done well or you take the abuse yeah or You apologize right people say it's a Stupid ritual whatever whatever it is Cars don't wasn't there for that Mourinho actually said oh I've already Told him to go find himself a new club In January uh it's pretty extremely good You have to put your faith in Mourinho That he knows what buttons to push yeah Yeah uh but again not something you see Every day of the week from the defeat to Juventus with the sixth one that's right 6-1 win oh because Blown crisis sorry yeah in a way it's Just play bologna because I think they I Think they scored the last time they had Scored six uh they were playing Bolognese really Um they went a gold down in this game to One of the and go go on YouTube and Check this out because there's one of The luckiest own goals it wasn't a known Goal but the bologna guy shot it it hits Liko Gyan and he takes a weird uh Trajectory into the back of the net and This is when you wonder into coming off
The FIFA look I said against you they Weren't bad they played well uh I I Think Simone and I don't know how he Does it because I think there's a zoo But he has a way of keeping things calm Here's away This feels like I say more like a team Mentally yeah than not all good by Jayco As well wow I I thought yeah and two Goals as well for my boy feder DeMarco Milan uh Makes a lot of changes yeah drop points Like this could cost them the title Though and maybe more than that they They definitely could they missed Olivia Giroud in this game was obviously Suspended for picking up for sure yeah He felt so bad a poor guy Um what I will say before people get all Doom and gloom about them being eight Points behind Napoli is Milan won the title last season correct Yeah last season at this stage they had 32 points yeah this season they have 30 Points so I don't know if it's so much a Case that suddenly there were no eight Points behind someone who's flying last Season yeah but they can't control that I mean yeah they couldn't control they Could have beat Napoli when they played Them and they didn't I know but you see What I'm saying yeah Um if you assume Napoli gonna slow down I mean I'm kick it up a notch then
