I am wondering if thats a misdirect. Wonder if she is really talking to Coach Beard or someone else.

Interested to see where the Roy/Nate coaching dynamic goes next. It was obvious that Nate was not happy to see Roy walk to the dugout.

But I think this is one of the best series on right now.

it’s incredibly watchable, and just so pleasant. The Christmas episode was a fantastic standalone ep, worthy of a rewatch around actual Christmas time

Well they def didn’t let the “who is messaging Rebacca” thing linger luckily. And seems like Nate and Roy will see each other as equals now.

I love this show. Great mix of English self deprecating humor and American optimism. So many quick random references to stuff too. One thing that kind of interests me is that so much of the cast is English but they use American words for a lot of stuff. Clearly American script writers, but who cares, not a big deal.

I enjoyed watching Spurs bottle their chances at a trophy in a fictional TV Show.

I can’t see Sams father being too enthusiastic about him humping Rebecca

Spoilers from S2 Ep11













I really hope Dr Fieldstone isn't leaving the show, I think she brought a good dynamic and the actress was really good in that role.

I have thought the football (soccer) talk has been somewhat realistic until this week. I am sorry I have a hard time believing a Ghanian Tech Oligarch really thinks he can buy a Morroccon club and turn it into the same thing as some European Giants. I mean Club America, Boca Juniors, and River Plate are well known but even they don't move the meter like the European clubs.

That brings me to Nate, his character has had an interesting arc, especially this season. I am sure its not coincedental that his hair has been getting grayer as the season progresses. They are setting him up to be the antagonist next season.

Predictions for finale this week
Roy and Keely break up
Nate is Fired
Richmond get promoted (News broke that they can use Premier League Teams and Stadiums, and players in Season 3 winning Emmy's has privleges)
Rebecca's Ex buys another Club and hires Nate.
Dr Fieldstone Returns to help Ted cope with the bad press on his panic attack
Rebecca and Sam get back together and go public.
Coach Beard gets engaged

^pretty interesting takes. I agree with most of them. It will be interesting to see how they turn Nate into the antagonist. I just don't see him immediately jumping into a managerial role for a PL rival.

I know it's part of the schtick, but I kind of hope they turn down Ted's goof level next season. The subject matter has been more serious this season while they've turned Ted into a Cartoon.

I think Ted will forgive him against Beard and Roy's advice, but Nate will still quit. He's def kicked out of the Diamond Dogs though.

^very true.

So next season will be interesting.
I am predicting that the season will end with Ted vs Nate in a game to determine who stays up. I will not be able to take West Ham and Richmond contesting for the title.

I could also see Nate getting sacked early in season and coming crawling back to Ted begging for forgivness.

^ It's probably going to be something like Nate's team stomping Ted's team, then the crowd still cheering for Ted's team because they have such good sportmanship.

I don't think they'll drag the showdown out all season either, doesn't seem like the style to me

^Thats plausible kind of a Jamie Tartt ending but with a coach.

The showrunners have said season 3 is last season.

****Spoilers*****

Nate's newfound obsession with his own status or ability as a coach was interesting to watch. Essentially, when Nate felt like Ted was no longer reinforcing his recently gained self-esteem, putting it at risk, Nate turned to the internet and others, which fueled his esteem and also his anger at Ted for not doing the same and abandoning him.

I've seen character's 180º before, but Nate's over 12 episodes was done quickly without feeling aggressive or too unbelievable.

That component of this season is enough in itself to warrant a rewatch.

Just finished season 2 last night. It was great.

I remember watching the initial clips they released of Ted Lasso and was surprised when I heard they were going to be able to turn that into an entire series. I thought they used up all the jokes about an oblivious American coach taking over an English soccer team in the short clips. But holy cow, the comedy in the show is secondary. I never would have guessed that this show would bring me to tears but it's happened multiple times. Feel good tears

I saw payoff still kind of a douche but no biggie


So is Nate gaslighting Ted, unintentionally or not, bc his own narcissm combined with self hate has posioned his brain, or is there truth to his frustrations about being ignored? I feel like I need to go back and watch both seasons but only scenes with both of them, my current assumption is 99% the former.

I agree with you. When he unleashed on Ted I was like "wtf are you talking about?"
