and, uh, for me, actually playing in a team with such great players as A in Saint John. What I can remember really was the fact that he blended into the side to be fair in the showbiz team, we did have quite a few people with big personalities, as you'd expect me to say that. So, um, the football is when they came in just on the playing side that they became very much their own people because we respected. We looked up to these people. They were people we've seen on TV giants on the pitch, obviously walking out in front of the thousands of admiring kopites and people watching Liverpool. So yes, a very sad day. You're going to tell us more of how you remember him because he went on to become both the football coach with He also played for Tranmere Rovers just around the time that I knew him. Um, but I don't think he was in the sort of he was playing full time at that time. I think he would. He'd gone away from that anyway. You remember him more from his program with with Jimmy Greaves, don't you? Yes, I do. it's, um well, sometime, isn't it really? Because the Satan greasy program that they have, um, in the late 19 of the mid 19 eighties to the early 19 nineties, Um, on a Saturday lunch, Tarim before the matches on Saturday, um, was a legendary program, wasn't it? It broke barriers. Basically, as far as reported. On spot went a lot of humor involved. There were a brilliant double act. Um, innocent job was the straight man, if you like to. Jimmy Greaves is sort of like laying back comedic approach. But it was compulsory viewing. Everybody watched it that back in those days, Yeah, and yeah, it was it was very, very entertaining. And you could always see the audience and John, even though it was the straight man, if you like, you know, he always had a little bridge in a sort of, like, twinkle in his eye because they made a brilliant double that whoever decided to put them together. Um, this was a medal. Really? Because they never played together. Group C was West Ham and Chelsea, wasn't he? And, as you say in Saint John, predominantly Liverpool. So they might have played against each other greasy for England, an instant John for Scotland. But they weren't they weren't didn't know each other before and if you like And when they got together, it was just chemistry between them. Brilliant programs, brilliant memories, very sad to see him gone. Really, Uh, it's quite amazing at times because the legend, if you can sort of put it that way, was that Bill Shankly brought in Ron Yates and Ron Yates was a huge guy. He also played in the charity games Every now and again, Um, you know, he was a massive guy who went on to obviously play with trauma, and I think he managed Tranmere at one time. Um and that's probably why in Saint John eventually played a couple of games that he played about half a dozen. Maybe a few more for Tranmere Rovers. But, um, you hear more at that time of Bill Shankly bringing in Ron Yates and building the team around this guy. Apparently, um, he was doing coach tours with people going around the big run. Yates. That's how big he was. Um, and sometimes you know, it's only when somebody dies that you really start looking back at how big an influence. Um, this particular gentleman was He was a nice man, by the way. Very, very, for me in the football team. He was very quiet, actually. But of course, it could also be the fact that, you know, I would have been looking at him through different eyes. You know, for me, these type of guys were a bit special, and there was a breed of gentleman that came from the first division. Uh, we we talk about the Premier League as if it's something totally different. It isn't. It's a rebranded first division. That's what really it is. And sadly, when we talk about marketing, you know, we get a totally different picture, don't we, Rob? Well, we do, Vinson, as you mentioned now, the Premier League. Um, the Satan greasy program was phased out in 1992 because that is when Sky Spot got the rights to what the down called the Premier League. It used to be called the first division, didn't it? And, um, that is when basically, football changed a developed start to develop into what we have today. But back then, it was still, um Well, it was still feel like the old days. Um but that was the reason why the program was phased out. Because I see very lost the television rights and he went to sky. And we all know what happened since then. Yeah, well, I mean, we we Whether we like it or not, time always will be changing in progression. People will say is for the better or for the worse, depending on whether you agree with it or don't agree with it. Uh, for my money, I still think that, uh, it's probably right to progress and put the Premier League with a super title. But, I mean, it's all this business of, you know, Warrington Wolves. And you know, everything has to have a snappy title and all this sort of thing. I still do. Like looking back, I think that certain clubs with the backbone of what became the Premier League, even if they haven't always wanted as often I mean, it wasn't till last year that Liverpool's actually won the Premier League, which was ridiculous because they were dominating British football and English football in particular during certain decades. So really, that's how silly it became. Um, however, we've got to move on, and we're going to look next at another man who? I know the name. I don't know as much about I certainly never met the man. Glen Roy Scheider. Yes. Well, actually, yeah. Yeah, Blair wrote it was he was a player. Um, instant job played slightly before my time, if you like. So I remember as a presenter. But I remember I remember Glen Road as a manager. He was a player, but he he played for teams like Watford, Leyton, Orient and Julian. But then he went on to be a manager, and he was a really promising young manager. He had a really good spell at Newcastle United, um, early early parts of the 21st century, but then he was diagnosed with a brain tumor. Now this was I think this was about 10 years ago, 2010, something like that. And he had his career cut short. I mean, he was only 65 when he died a couple of days ago, and he was really at the peak of his career. He could have been a really, really good manager, but it was all cut shot from unfortunately, and a lot of the players who played under him. Um, really broken up about this because he was very young to go. Um, it's very unfortunate. Really so. Condolences to his family and older people that knew him had it been a long illness. Do we know? Yes. Yes. Yes, Prince. He was coming up to the peak of his career. He could have believed as a manager, and he was diagnosed with some kind of brain tumor, and that was what eventually finished him off. But he finished. He finished his career. Um, I think he was about 10 year old and it was a lie. Illness? Yeah. I mean, it doesn't matter who you are for me. Um, you know, anybody who's got something like a brain tumor, it's just so sad. And obviously, um, as within ST John and all these other greats that we've been talking about Commiserations to the family and friends because obviously, um, they've had a huge influence. Whether you know, you're a fan of that particular club or not, it doesn't really matter. These people have had a big influence, and certainly, uh, we'd like to send our commiserations to all the family and friends. I'm sure you feel the same, don't you? Oh, yes. Yes. It's very sad occasion. Um, well, both filters and John. And for Glenn Roeder's family and everybody that knew then. Yeah. Okay. Well, look, um, not that I don't want to spend more time on these matters because obviously, uh, it seems quite trite, really, To be discussing a life of somebody in five minutes maximum, but that's just a part of what we do. So we'll move on next to what we call shenanigans. And this is to do with a police raid on the offices of Barcelona Football Club. Now Barcelona is probably the biggest club in the world, probably the biggest, certainly the biggest club in Europe. But, you know, you get people like Madrid. Real Madrid might say differently, but they are a huge influence. What's going on, Rock? Well, then, sure. What's going on at Barcelona? Football is a good example of what we call shenanigans, isn't it? We haven't spoken about that kind of thing for a while because we've got coronavirus. But now this is crops, and it is quite a serious situation. And the bosses, the squadron, which is the Catalan police force raided Barcelona Football Club. Nothing was Tuesday, so this is an ongoing current event. But they went in mob handed and raided the football club to find evidence and things like that. And they arrested Josette Bartolomeo and three of the members of the board because they have been up to no good, basically. But the basic outline is what they've been doing is they've been paying a company which is called 13 Venture and this is an Internet company and they control people online and that is basically what they do. They can do positive publicity, they do negative publicity. But what they've been doing is they've been giving negative publicity. Two members and ex members of Barcelona Football Club, including Lionel Messi, Gerard Pique, champion Andes and Pep Guardiola. There are other people also, that they've been giving publicity to online and trying to ruin their reputation and things like that. Now that in itself is not actually illegal. It's quite immoral, it's not illegal, but the way that the illegality comes about is that they've been paying Barcelona's bar have been paying this 13 venture company and six times more than the normal market rate for the services and they can't account why they've been paying that much. So it looks like they've been paying this company, and a lot of money is being filtered away. We're talking about millions here. And am I right? Am I right? Am I right, Robin? Asking you whether or not there are elections coming up to the to the board of Barcelona Is this what's happening at the moment? Yeah, the elections are coming up very soon, actually. And this guy Bhattacharya was going to put himself up again for re election as president. Um, but they've been investing investigating this since last year. It was the members of the board last year. He noticed something strange going on, reported it to the police and resigned their positions of the members of the Barcelona board. So it's all back room should against politics between themselves and there are elections coming up. And I think that is probably why the police chose to raid when they did. Because they've got enough evidence to arrest the former president and three of his colleagues on what, appearing to be quite serious fraud charges. Obviously that bar flooring and have the best lawyers in the business. So the police must have some kind of evidence to have actually got and raided them and arrested the ex president. And it was very interesting to see what comes out in the wash, because this is it's a nest of vipers, isn't it? Basically, it's like a kind of worms is the bachelor of back room situation and all sorts of things likely to come out? Leo Messi. Actually, since this has happened, he's felt free to feel free to speak about his own personal situation. Because there's been a lot of speculation isn't about the over the last year or so. And he's actually stated that he put in an official various official applications for a transfer because he wasn't happy at the club. He thought that he should bring in newer players. He thought his time there was over because he was jaded and he wasn't happy about playing and they refused him. They refused him every time we tried to put in an official application for transfer. So what else will come out when they investigate everything? I imagine that there's been a lot of paper shredding over the last few days Barcelona football possibly these days, smashing hard disks and things like that and trying to get rid of evidence. Because this is a very serious charge out here. I mean, this is This is a fraud charges. There are, of course, and of course, we're talking massive money Williams. And it's obviously something that in the around the Ballet Rx going across to Valencia because you've also got something going on at Valencia Football Club. Now there's a connection with your football club leads. I don't know if you are aware of it, but from what I was reading Prince of Your Hair or Somewhere is trying to buy Valencia from Peter Lim, who at the moment is apparently the guy in charge. And apparently the leads owner Andreas Radr is Ani. Is it? Yeah, something that says something like that. He was tipped to try and take over at Valencia. Now I saw all sorts of things going on that the first thing I need to ask you Why are they called lost? K C A G. Right? Well, Jake is it's a typical salutations like mate or something like that. Um, no, I make that kind of thing. Che is a very common word for saluting friends in the Valencian community. And that's why the car lost chair. Okay? Not like, yeah, because, like, the mates or something like that. Okay, now, first of all, why are your team? I'm pointing the finger at you personally being a Leeds fan. Okay, Um, do you think there's any substance in what I've seen in the papers about leads possibly becoming associate?
