Good morning everyone. I'm Seema and welcome to MOTD Kickabout. There's
so much to cram into today's show, so let's get straight on with it.
Coming up, former West Ham and England star striker Dean Ashton is
our guest in the dug out. Karim AKA Sadiq takes on Sab's Big Mouth and
we have a challenge specially for Kickabout. We are going a to
transform him into a free-styling mascot. Time for my clips of the
week and they both feature my beloved team, the club I've always
supported, none other than the mighty Liverpool. The women's team
played Birmingham last Sunday. Birmingham from the blue equalised
and would have thought they weren't in any trouble at the restart,
right? Wrong! A great strike from Farah Williams but the, but the ref
had to apologise, because he hadn't blown his whistle, a meaning the
goal shouldn't have stood. Rickie Lambert and Adam Lallana and Jordan
Henderson have been answering questions fans like to know. What
would you say to any aspiring youngster who wants to make it in
your sport? Give it everything. Try your best. Describe yourself in
three words. Busy. Busy and busy. Who has the best wanter in the club?
Enrique probably has the worst. Of course you're busy Jordan, you're a
professional football earn! Moving on to the week's news. Moor about
Liverpool. I promise I haven't done this on purpose. They beat
Middlesbrough on Tuesday night this on purpose. They beat

any penalty shoot-out. The final this on purpose. They beat

Anfield, with both teams struggling for form this season and desperate
for a win. There is another huge Derby clash tonight, this time in
North London. Arsenal take on Spurs, plus it is first versus third, with
Chelsea looking to maintain plus it is first versus third, with

you. You can watch us on your tablet or smartphone and every afternoon by
heading to the BBC Sport website. Ceefax was the internet and mobile
service of its time and was the only way to find out the latest football
scores, even if you weren't at a game or listening to it on the
radio. In its heyday, it would attract an audience of over 20
million people every week. Wow! It was so popular that even footballers
used to go on it. When legendary Dutch striker Dennis Bergkamp signed
to Arsenal in 1985, he used Ceefax to see the

television moved to a new and exciting digital age, one which you

Ashton! He has half a chance. Dean Ashton with a magnificent goal.
Ashton's header and it's in! What a moment for Dean Ashton. So we are
joined in the studio by Dean Ashton. Dean, welcome to Kickabout. It is so
lovely to have you here. It is great to be here. My seven-year-old will
be delighted. I bet he will be very proud to see dad on Kickabout I'm
sure. I hope so. Do you remember Ceefax? Absolutely. That's how I
found out the scores. It was great way to learn how to use the remote.
Today my two sons are whipping around the internet and can find
scores right away. So much easier these days. The Derbys today, the
Merseyside and North London Derby. What is it like to play in a Derby?
It is extra special. You really feel the expectation of the crowd, of
your own fans. If you make a mistake, will you be remembered, but
if you do something amazing in the game, if you score the winning goal
you will be remembered forever. You want to do something that you get
remembered forever. Let's talk about the Premier League. Chelsea are the
ones to beat this season so far What do you make of them? They've made
such a strong start. Jose Mourinho bringing in Fabregas and Diego
Costa, fantastic signings to what was already a great squad. They are
a great threat. Diego Costa is known as a target man's striker. Is there
a place for them in the Premier League? I really hope so. Having
been a target man striker myself, we thought that they were dying out,
the big strikers, but Diego Costa has come back in. The way he holds
the ball up and links the play and the goals that he scores, brings the
tag back of the big striker that can hold the ball up. You were that
striker that could hold the ball up. You scored in the Cup Final. How did
that feel? It was a dream. You grew up as a young boy and all up wanted
to do was play in a Cup Final. You look pretty chuffed there. And a bit
of hair as well. The whole putting your suit on before the game,
meeting Prince William. It felt very, very special. It was a shame
that Steven Gerrard spoiled the day. Well, thank you very much. We'll be
seeing you later in the stat cave. How are you feeling about that?
Alright. Best of luck. Talking of the FA Cup, the competition is back
on the BBC this season and here on Kickabout we'll be bringing you some
special extra episodes later in the year. Plus we thought we would try
to do something which has never been done before. We all like football
mascots and we all like freestyle tricks, so what if we could somehow
combine the two? Well, it is a Chancellor our very own John
Farnworth just couldn't resist. Hi guys I'm so excited to be an FA Cup
mascot. The design process is under way but today we are going behind if
scenes to see what's going on. The first step in creating a mascot is
the design and it is happening in this caravan. Let's go and have a
look. You are a designer, you seem to be drawing on the screen. When I
was at school I drew on paper. This a designer, you seem to be drawing
on the screen. When I was at school I drew on paper. This is sip ma --
cinema 3D, so we don't have to draw back and front views. It is fun to
see how if I was a cartoon character this is what I would look like.
Guys, I'm here with Rennie, who is going to project manage this whole.
Huing doing? I'm good, how are you? Not too bad. Is this what we are
going to base the suit on? This is a Ees, starting point for what your
underbody is going to look like. This is based on a superhero body.
Let's try this stuff on. It feels pretty good. I'm amazed. I feel like
a proper superhero. My thighs, because I do a lot of tricks on my
thinks, balance and kick it there, on my thinkings, balance and kick it
there. My calves, can I still use my heels and my it's. I've done a bit
in my suit. I want to see what the helmet is like. Doing basic stuff is
OK. It would be when we started to do more flashy stuff. That's
brilliant John. John. From watching you do your skills, going to get the
majority of your vision through the mouse. Before I leave, I had best
take this off, or I will look silly. I s off, or I will look silly. I
think soft. -- I think so. That was brilliant. Over the next few months
we'll be tracking John's progress in training. Training. Plus keep an eye
out for our first episode in November when our finished mascot
Farnworth will be unleashed to the world. Dean, it is time to take you
into the stat cave. How you feeling? Pressure from my son to get two out
of three at least. The stat cave. Deeper, welcome to the stat cave.
Here are the rules. Very simple. I'm going to ask you three questions.
Each of the answers either higher or lower, and if you get all three
correct here is your prize, the golden key. Wow! Question one, you
may have seen that former Liverpool striker Luis Suarez scored after
just 13 minutes after his Barcelona B debut this week, and you may have
seen the win in the cup. It was shoot-out in minutes higher or lower
than 13? That's a difficult one. I did watch the penalty shoot-out as
well. I'm going to go longer. Higher. Your answer is higher? It
was higher. OK. 17 minutes and 7 seconds it took. Did you get that at
home? I hope you're playing along. I got one right. That's a brilliant
start. Question 2. Dean, during your playing career you found the back of
the net an impressive 111 times. Wow! You look shock there had. Here
is Carlos Tevez. Can you tell me if the number of goals he scored for
West Ham, Manchester United and Manchester City combined is higher
or lower than 111? Probably going to bet myself, so I'm going to go
lower. OK. Your final answer? Yes. You were right to back yourself,
because it was lower, with 85. The final question. Dean, you made your
Crewe debut aged just 16. On the wall of the cave is Chelsea striker
Didier Drogba, but when he played his first professional game, was his
age higher or lower than 16? His first professional game? A bit of a
tough one. I don't know where it would have been either. I'm going
higher. Dean, you are a winner! He was 21 years old. Brilliant! That is
quite old isn't it? That is. Compared to 16, I was only a little
quite old isn't it? That is. child back then it felt like. You
are now the proud owner of the golden key. How do you feel? It
feels great. To be able golden key. How do you feel? It
son I got all three, I will be able to see if he got all three at home.
High five me. It's been a pleasure having you on Kickabout. It's been a
pleasure and let's hope I beat my son at home when he sees questions.
The stat cave. Cave. So, time for this week's Sav's big mouth
of the first teams to play with challenger. Over
of the first teams to play with numbered shirts.
S I got three. I'm happy about that. Karim, that's three for you. A great
effort but not enough to challenge for the top I'm afraid. That's all
we have time for today. In a few hours the Merseyside Derby will be
kicking off at Anfield. It is a match both teams really need to win,
so there's bound to match both teams really need to win,
like this. Goodbye. There is no magic formula. It is just time,
patience with players. My experience tells me they will get better. We
are really excited and looking forward to travelling to an field.
