Hello footy fans. Ben Cajee reporting for duty. Welcome to
another action packed Kick About. Here's what's coming up in today's
show. Find out what happens when we meet a City fan fresh from recording
the Jamie Johnson podcast and we have more brilliant skills
videosment All that -- videos. All that and
more to come. Of course, we've got this. I've been looking forward to
this. It's the Kick About goal alert. Look at this! It's the goal
alert. I was told it could go off at any time. Here are the goals.
Wow, some crackers in there. Don't worry we've got more goals still to
come. First, here are some of the weird and wonderful stories from the
footy world this week. Many big clubs claim celebrity fans.
Olly Murs and Man United. Doncaster Rovers have Louis Tom Lynnson. Last
weekend James Bond blew his cover and showed his cover as a Liverpool
fan at Anfield. Halesowen town were left asking who left the dug out.
Their game was invaded by puppies. Check out that skill, pace and the
movement. Sign him up boys. He could wear the number K 9, get it? The
Premier League is really hotting up. And there was drama in mid-week as
Spurs scored three in the dying minutes against Swansea to keep
their title hopes alive as Chelsea maintained their seven-point cushion
with a win against Man City. But the really big news in British football
is that one major league title has already been sewn up. Celtic have
been crowned champions of the Scottish Premiership. Cue Kolo Toure
having a dance. It's no wonder they're happy. Celtic
haven't lost all season and it's their sixth title in a row. They
really did it in style. Check this out.
Congratulations to Celtic again. The Premiership may be settled, but
there's still plenty to look forward to for Scottish footy fans, not
least the women's euros in the summer, when Scotland's first game
is against England. Thelinesses -- the lionesses announced their squad
this week. We caught up with manager Mark Sampson to get the low down.
When I'm thinking about the final squad there's so many things to
consider to get it right. You're aware it's such an important call.
Only once every two years you get the chance to go to a major
tournament. The most important consideration is what will it take
to win and who are the right people to bring on this journey to help us
win. Without a shadow of a doubt the most important part of the
tournament is the high pressure, is the no tomorrow feeling of games
where you know if you lose you go home, and if you win, you stay and
fight another day. We're excited to get over to Holland and find a way
to win six matches in a way, which is what we need to do to win this
tournament. The game we're most looking forward to is the final.
We've been working two years to get ready for this tournament. But we've
got five real tough ones, starting with the old enemy in Scotland to
negotiate before that final. The World Cup brought great memories.
COMMENTATOR: Oh, yes! An absolute belter!
It's off the post and in, England lead! We can one, absolutely. We're
a team that have got a number of years' experience and great times as
a group, some hard times as well. We've learned from that and worked
hard time prove from. We definitely go to Holland in the summer as a
group who are confident, if we get everything right, we can bring this
trophy back for country. Great stuff. Thanks Mark. Well done
to all the England players who got the call, including Kick About's own
Alex Scott. You might remember she once got the better of Tyler at a
football Theme Park. Win e, winner, chicken dinner. Come
on, take a breath. How are you feeling? I can't talk at the moment.
When we sent her to put young stars through their paces, let's say she
got interrupted. Hi Kick About. I'm at a school in
North London. Oi, Scotty. Not you again. Yeah, we have a score to
settle. How about we pick a team and see who the best coach is. I'm blue
team. Obviously I'm going to be the red team.
Round two? Let's go. Scotty meet Tyler's tadpoles. What
kind of a name is that. That's good. What's yours? We don't need a name,
we do our talking on the pitch. We've got two nets over here. The
team who score the most wins, easy as that. Let's go.
Faster. Faster. Yes, one! So close. Unlucky. Accuracy is key. That's
powerful that one. Red team 1-0. Yeah! High five.
Challenge two, both teams need to dribble the ball through the cones
all the way to the other side and passbook to their team-mates, do you
think you can handle it? Yes! First team to get all their players to the
other side wins. Right. Bring it on tadpoles.
Do you like the name tadpoles? No. CHEERING
Tyler, you know it's 2-0 at the moment, how about I give you a
chance. This challenge let's do double or quits, all or nothing, how
about we end in a match? I believe in my tadpoles.
Let's go guys. I'm feeling quite happy right now
because I believe the score was 3-0. Yeah, unfortunately. We tried our
best. But I promise you, it's not over. There will be a round three. I
have to keep saying it, but bring it on.
CHEERING Brilliant. Thanks to all those who
took part and commiserations to Tyler and those tadpoles. You've
really got to love beating Tyler in any kind of challenge. You can catch
a great interview with Alex Scott on the first edition of the brand new
Jamie Johnson podcast. It's packed with footy chat, stars from the cast
and Man City superfan Braden. Tell me about the podcast. Why do I
need to listen? You just generally talking about football. It's fun. I
met dillon. Sadly he's a United fan. His real mate's Patrick. What else
did you do? We did a whistle, when you whoever can blow the final
whistle for the longest. Were you good at that? Yeah, no. The whistle
was terrible. You know loads about football because you're a big City
fan. Yeah. Who's your favourite player? I can't pick really, but if
I had to I'd go for Sergio. He's pretty good. We could do with him at
West Ham. He scores lots of goals. What's your favourite? Last season
against Begovic, against Chelsea. Nice goal. What's your favourite
colour, is it blue being a City fan or go for red like United? Blue. Not
red. Light blue. Sky blue. Yeah. If you could go to any country in the
world, this is a good question, where would you go? Belgium. Yeah?
Maybe you could go with De Bruyne. That would be cool. Yeah, that would
be cool. Was your favourite food. Come on. I've had steak before, only
once, because my dad thinks it's too expensive. There is that. What
skills are you going to teach me? What's your favourite trick, what do
you like doing? I like doing a Nasri turn. You use the side of your foot
and go. Like a 360. Yeah. I like you when you go on top of the ball and
spin. So like both feet. Maradonna. That's one of my favourites. I saw
your video. I watched it last night. With pep in the back of a cab. That
must have been a good surprise. It was fun, yeah. I saw what you spoke
about and you were talking about best players in the world and you
said you wanted Messi. If you could still have any player in the world,
would you have Messi or someone else? I'd have somebody else now
because Messi is at the end of his career. He's still a good player.
Yeah, he is. I'd go for Neymar. Maybe what you could be is Pep's
right hand man. Yeah. Would you be up for that? Yeah. How would you do
school work and that? Bring the school to the work or quit school
and do the work. I think you should do both.
It was so great to meet Braden. Be sure to check out the podcast if you
haven't already. Follow the link at the top of the Kick About website.
If Jamie was looking for more talented footballers to join him in
the show, I think we may have found some.
You have some serious skills. Fantastic stuff. Luke, with the
overhead. Luke, it's in. Arms in the air. What a celebration. Straight in
the bin. Look at that. Casual. Lovely. Jake, no way. The overhead
kick in the top corner. He even followed it up with a celebration.
Look at the technique on that. Top work. What a goal.
Fantastic skills. Please keep those videos coming in. We love seeing
them. Well, that's nearly full-time for Kickabout. Don't forget Match of
the Day at 7. 30 tomorrow morning on BBC One for a round up of this
weekend's Premier League games. Before we go, spare a thought for
amber Dean's story, who managed to miss this gaping open goal last
Tuesday. I feel for you. I've missed some
sitters, don't worry, you're not on your own. We leave you with some of
the best misses of all time. I think you're going to love this. See you.
