“I believe it is, yeah. You know, back where I’m from, we call those selfies. Yeah. I like that. Well, you know, I’ve heard that tune before. But here I am, still dancing. Yeah. Nice meeting you. What you reading? Another soccer book. Coach, you are a sponge. Come on. Hit me with a fun fact. Okay, you owe me five bucks if I sneak into a sentence later. Okay. Yeah, yeah, yeah. Hmm. Are we nuts for doing this? Hey, but taking on a challenge is a lot like riding a horse, isn’t it? If you’re comfortable while you’re doing it, probably doing it wrong. Okay, good night coach. Oh, oh, oh. Hey, hey, hey! If we see each other in our dreams, let’s goof around a little bit, pretend like we don’t know each other.” — Ted Lasso

“Not a wink. No. My brain just kept on cooking. At first, I was thinking about not sleeping. Then I was thinking about thinking about not sleeping. And that– that’s never good. Next thing you know, they’re handing out warm chocolate chip cookies and the planes landing. That’s not part of the story. I think this is us right here. Hey, how you doing? My name’s Ted. What’s yours? Who are you?” — Ted Lasso

“Nice. No, no, no, Ollie. We packed ’em, we’ll carry ’em. Love to make a little pit stop though. Yeah. There ya go. Coach, I got a feeling we’re not in Kansas anymore, right? Hey, I’ve never actually said that when not in Kansas anymore. Yeah. Well, thanks for indulging us, Ollie. Ready to boogie whenever you are. Right. Not the London Bridge, ’cause this one’s still up.” — Ted Lasso

“Feels different, coach. I mean, the same, but different. You know it, baby. I’m Ted Lasso. This is Coach Beard here. Yes, sir. Oh. No– that’s all right. No need. Yeah. Oh, yeah. Yeah, yeah. Absolutely. Do we apologize? Sorry about that, grass.” — Ted Lasso

“So, we’re supposed to meet with a Rebecca Welton. Oh. Look at this guy. Hey, what’s your name, by the way? Yeah. Oh. I mean, whenever you’re ready. Nathan! Aw, I love that name. Hey, love your hot dogs. Good, good. Y’all got Nathan’s hot dogs here? Okay. I love this kid. Love him.” — Ted Lasso

“Hey, how y’all doing? I’m Ted Lasso, your new coach. You must be Ms. Welton. If that’s a joke, I love it. If not, I cannot wait to unpack that with you. This here is Coach Beard. Wi-Fi password, wet wipes. Thank you. Okay. Yes, please. Didn’t get much sleep on the plane, so anything you got, a little boost of caffeine, should do the trick. You know, mochaccino, Frappuccino… any coffee thing, as long as I can’t taste a hint of coffee, is good. Well, usually I take it right back to the counter ’cause someone’s made a horrible mistake. But… when in Rome, right? Yeah. Look at that. Okay. Mm. Mm-hmm. You know, I always figured that tea was just gonna taste like hot brown water. And you know what? I was right. Yeah, it’s horrible. No, thank you. Yeah. ‘Get used to it, sucker.’ Right? Oh, I’d love to see Abbey Road. Yeah, let’s start there.” — Ted Lasso

“Ooh. That’s spooky. I do. But more importantly, I think they need to believe in themselves. You know? Okay. And now look at this fella up here. How ’bout the girls and the champagne and everything? He looks like a good time. Well, good times aren’t always a good time, I’ve found. You know, I heard about all that. How you holding up? Yeah. Oh, yeah. No, after a couple nights’ good sleep, I’ll be happy to do so. They’re what?” — Ted Lasso

“Okay. All right. How y’all doing? Oh. One sec. Let me just– throat got a little dry. Did not expect fizzy water there. Sorry. How about I go ahead and address the larger-than-average elephant in the room. No, I have never coached the sport that you folks call football at any level. Heck, you could fill two internets with what I don’t know about football. But I’ll tell you what I do know. I know that AFC Richmond, like any team I’ve ever coached, is gonna go out there and give you everything they got for all four quarters. What was that? Oh, right. Sorry. Halves, yeah. They’re gonna give you everything they got for two halves, win or lose. Right. Y’all do ties here. Sorry. That’s going to take some getting used to for me. ‘Cause back where I’m from, you try to end a game in a tie, well that might as well be the first sign of the apocalypse. Now, look here. I respect what you folks in the media do. And my door is always gonna be open. All right? You can ask me anything. No topic will be into touch. Uh, how about the fellow right there in the second row. Yeah. I-I like your glasses. You got a question in there, Trent? Well, yeah, you got Ronaldo and the fellow that bends it like himself. Not off the top of my head, no. I actually don’t know the answer to that. I’m sorry. The fella with the big Mickey Mouse hands and the– by the net. Yeah, yeah. No, yeah. No, no, I– the bubbles! Nice meeting y’all. And, uh, sorry for spittin’ on all your stuff up here.” — Ted Lasso

“Oh, boy. I’m sorry about that. I don’t know what happened. I appreciate that– thank you, coach. Yeah. Mm. See, I’m fine when there’s no bubbles. You know, I can do that all day. Okay. You know, I’d love to say hi to the team, if I can. You can say that again. Okay. I am 0 for 2 in that sentence.” — Ted Lasso

“Okay, let me use it in a sentence, so it sticks. The ‘gaffer’ –me– is going out to the ‘pitch’ — ….the grass here– to watch practice. ‘Training.’ They call practice ‘training.’ All this vernacular. Gonna be tough. You know what? I’m gonna get it though. ‘Cause training makes perfect. Oh. There’s our man. Ooh! Who is that?” — Ted Lasso

“Oh, God, what? That is a darn fine sports mix, young fella. Coach, you try this? That does not come lightly from that fella, I’ll tell you that. You continue to impress, Nathan. Holy smokes! Did you see that? That fella looked like a kitty cat when it gets spooked by a cucumber. Who the heck is that? Hmm. Nate, what’s he like? Mm-hmm. Yeah, I know fellas like that. Nigeria? Like Africa? So these fellas are from all over the place? I mean, he must be from England, yeah? Is that another country? How many countries are in this country? It’s kinda like America these days.” — Ted Lasso

“I do love a locker room. Smells like potential. And am I getting notes of Axe body spray? Mm. Oh. Ding, ding, ding. Lynx. Yeesh. Last time I saw eyes that cold, they were going head-to-head with Roy Scheider. No, All That Jazz. I’m gonna say something. Howdy, fellas. Don’t stop what you’re doing. My name’s Ted Lasso. This here is Coach Beard. I know we don’t officially start quite yet, but, uh, you know, we just wanted to pop in, say howdy, let you know how excited we are to be here– no, no, that’s okay. How can I help you? No, that’s okay. Yeah. All right, kid. After you.” — Ted Lasso

“Anyhoo, uh, thank you for your time. Come on, man. Don’t be a sleep cop. Roy! Hey, Roy! It was real fun watching you out there today. You know, the boys really respond to you. It doesn’t surprise me though. You’ve had a heck of a career. Mm-hmm. You gonna let him call you that? Hmm. He thinks he’s mad now, wait till we win him over. You got any tape? Yeah, no, I’m fine. I’m fine. It’s okay. No, I was just making some adjustments to the locker room here. Now here I am thinking it was the room that was all outta whack. But you know what? I think you’re right. What you doing back here? Where’s Jamie? Why didn’t he come get it? Come on, now. Yeah, yeah. Help yourself. Oh. Great. All right. How ’bout that? Nice teamwork. Pow. Yeah. Oh, yeah. Hey, I’m Ted Lasso. How ’bout that. Nah. But I do beatbox all right. Well, I hope you never run into Biz Markie. Okay. Well, I’ll take your word for it.” — Ted Lasso

“Thank you. Hey, and thanks again for the lift. Hey, this you, Nate? Well, as the man once said, ‘the harder you work, the luckier you get,’ huh? Oh, no. That’s okay. Night y’all. Here we go. Hey, look, this car’s got an invisible steering wheel! I’m just kidding. It’s my man Nate here running the horn. Takes one to know one.” — Ted Lasso

“Okay. All right. You good? Yeah. Good night, coach. What’s this for? ‘Into touch.’ Yeah, I will.” — Ted Lasso

“Hey, big guy. How you doing? How was school today? Right. Ah, no, I-I forgot. Yeah. Yeah, I’m a little loopy today. Yeah. Yeah, you could say that. No, no, that’s okay. No. I just wanted to hear your voice. Yeah. Yeah, go do your thing. Yeah. Hey, is your mom there? Okay. Thanks, big guy. Hey. I miss you. Yeah, I love you too. Okay. Hey, how you doing? Yeah. Well, you know, so far so good. You know? It’s gonna take some getting used to, yeah. But-but I think once we get going, it’s gonna go all right. Yeah. No, that’s true, that’s true. Yeah. Well, you know what? It’s actually pretty nice. Yeah. Yeah, and tell you what, they got a cute neighborhood too. Yeah. Yeah, you and the little guy gotta get on over here. Come check it out. What? No, what did I say? But that’s what I’m doing though. I’m giving you that space. Yeah, yeah, yeah. Yeah, and myself. Right. Uh-huh. Okay. No, no. That’s okay. Yeah, yeah. Hey, hey, Michelle. I love you. No, no, that’s okay. You don’t have to. Really. Yeah. Okay. Uh-huh. All right, now. Good night. Shoot. Now I can’t sleep.” — Ted Lasso

“Rupert and I bought this on our fifth anniversary. Do you want it? Good point. You should’ve said yes. Auction pile, please. If he’s here, why isn’t he here? George. I could ask the same of your hair. Please. You’re fired. And I’ll be buying out the remainder of your contract. So… wish you the best of luck. I suppose I could go for any number of reasons, really. Your casual misogyny, for one. I know, it’s a big word. Ask one of your daughters what it means. Or perhaps it’s your performance, having led this team through yet another remarkably average season. Or maybe it’s because you insist on wearing those tiny shorts that force me to see one of your testicles. And there’s the other one. Liam and Noel. Though, perhaps not an oasis. Still, if I’m being completely honest, George, you’re fired because I’m the owner now, and I don’t like you. Now do piss off, you fat twat. Is there someone that could pop out and fetch me a salad? Nothing with raisins in it, please. No. That won’t be necessary. That’s kinda nice.”

“Hello. Oh. Please, call me Rebecca. Ms. Welton’s my father. It is so good to finally meet you both face-to-face. Higgins? Oh. Sorry. This is Higgins, our current director of communications. Could you take Coach Beard and get him their IDs, housing information… you know, anything they need. Please, take a seat. Can I get you something to drink? How do you take your tea? Well? Welcome to England. Now, would you like a tour? Of the club.”

“So, this hall represent the club’s long, albeit modest, history. The first match was played in 1897. Oh, during the war, our stadium was used as a makeshift hospital. Yeah, some of the locals claim they still see fallen soldiers wandering around the pitch.”

“Oh. Do you believe in ghosts, Ted? Okay. And this is a wall of our previous owners. That’s my ex-husband. Yeah, hasn’t been the easiest year. So, we’ll need you to speak to the press. I’m so sorry. I thought you knew. They’re ready for you now.”

“Coach Lasso. Good lord. You must forgive my fellow countrymen. Somewhere over the last few years, we seem to have abandoned all sense of manners and hospitality. My, my aren’t you a salty bunch? But I can’t remember the last time the press room was this full. Yet here you all are. Maybe you’re not such a mad notion after all. And despite the number of you here, there is not a single person in this room who has seen Richmond play more than I have. And after all those those years under the stewardship of the previous owner, I’ve witnessed nothing but profound mediocrity. Am I wrong? Am I wrong?”

“Now, Coach Lasso may not have the CV that you all find acceptable, but he does have one thing this club doesn’t: a trophy from this millennium. So, like it or not, Richmond are changing the way we do things. And from now on, that way is the ‘Lasso way.’ We look forward to seeing you all at our next match with Crystal Palace. Thank you so much. Thank you.”

“Ted, don’t you think about them for another second. You have a job to do. And proving them wrong, just been added to the list. Can’t keep a gaffer from his pitch.”

“Oh, he’s an absolute wanker. I hope he fails miserably. See, my ex-husband truly loved only one thing his entire life: this club. And Ted Lasso is gonna help me burn it to the ground. ‘Cause I want to torture Rupert. I want him to feel like he’s being fucked in the ass with a splintered cricket bat. Just in and out, over and over, in a constant loop. Like a GIF. That’s what GIFs do, isn’t it? They’re just… endless. Thank you, Higgins.”

“Already burning the midnight oil, I see, Ted. My apologies, Ted. We should have ordered you a car. What is wrong with you? Obviously, for this to work, I’m going to need the full support of my new director of football operations. I’m assuming that’s a promotion and substantial pay rise that would be of interest to you and your family. You’re a godsend, Ted Lasso. Well? Wonderful. Oh, and, uh, Higgins, I know that there’ll be elements to this little adventure that will weight on you a bit. But, uh, I’m sure it won’t be harder than it was to sneak all Rupert’s women in and out behind my back all those years.”

“Oh. Well, you have exquisite taste. But it’s a Hockney. It must be worth a million pounds. So, um, Mrs. Mannion– excuse me. Ms. Welton. George is here. Oh. Yes. Good point. Oh! Good one. So, what to do as far as new managers go? Shall I prepare a list of candidates?”

“Current? So, without further ado, the new manager of AFC Richmond, Ted Lasso! All right, one final question.”

“Ms. Welton, I was a bit skeptical, but after hearing you speak in there, I’m excited by your choice. Coach Lasso is just what we need. I know. Eh, pardon? That’s… correct. Uh, though some people, um, pronounce it ‘JIF.’ Thank you. Uh…”

“It’s just that everything I’ve eaten today… feels like it stuck right here.
He seems like such a nice man. I’m not sure I can do this. I accept.”

“They don’t say ‘out of bounds.’ They say ‘into touch.’ You’re on. We should get some sleep. The jet lag will kill us. Yeah, this is nuts. Night, coach. You got it, stranger. You didn’t sleep at all? I didn’t get a cookie. Did you eat mine?”

“You know how they came up with soccer? So, these Victorian-era headmasters, all they wanted to do was get the boys to stop masturbating. So they invented a sport where the boys wouldn’t use their hands at all, and they thought that might do the trick. I’m not sure if it worked, but… metaphor. Sorry, grass. Humidifier. Way ahead of you, coach.”

“Yeah. There you go. Roy Kent. Team captain. Classic old-school box-to-box midfielder. Jamie Tartt. Top scorer on the team. Who, Jamie? Sam Obisanya. He’s a right back defender outta the Nigerian league. Wales. Yes and no. Four. Spot on, coach. But I think they call it something else here. Ah! Jaws?”

“Coach, you gotta stay up. I don’t think he was referring to me. He’ll be furious. Got it. I got it. I got it.”

“This is you, coach. I’m good. You good? Night, coach. Oh. I almost forgot. Get some sleep, coach.”

“Oi! Oi! Excuse me! Oi! Hello! Off! Off! Stop touching the grass! Get off! Get off the pitch! Stop touching the grass! Please! Yep, yep, yep. Yeah. Oh, God. You’re the new manager. Take all the grass you want. We just had it cut. I can go through the garbage. I can get you some more. Thank you. Still, we got to get off the grass.”

“Yeah, that’s where I’m taking you. Me? No one ever asks my name. Oh, um, it’s Nathan. Yeah. No, I know. No. I’ll introduce you. Big boss.”

“Definitely lost a step. But you know, he’s a legend. Won a Champions League with Chelsea, so… you remembered my name.”

“Eh, he’s great. You know, at football. Four. Right.”

“Yeah? What do you want? That’s all right. Oh, that one? God, no. No, couldn’t handle that. This is me. Green one here. Right, so get that in there. Come on. On the diagonal.”

“What you doing in there? Oh, shit. I’m sorry. Are you all right? I shouldn’t laugh. Nice, yeah. Though, I believe it’s crooked. Oh, he left his phone in his locker. He’s still getting waxed. He’s surprisingly furry. The hair was, like, growing back while she was doing it. May I? Thanks. Lower it down on that side. Keep going. Little bit. Teeny bit more. Stop! That’s perfect. Old-school. I’m Keeley, by the way. No, I know. You’re tending hard on Twitter right now. Do you even tweet? I never know how to react when a grown man beatboxes in front of me. All right. Well, if you get curious and you start searching around on Twitter, I would avoid #Richmond. Or wanker. Or dick. Oh. Welcome to England.”

Your husband cheating on you or being the last to know? Fuck you.”

“This is a bit of surprising news from the other side of the Atlantic. AFC Richmond announced the hiring of their new manager, one Theodore ‘Ted’ Lasso. Recently, it was Coach Lasso leading the Division II Witchita State Shockers to their first ever national title in American football. He took the Shocker from a garbage program all the way to the promised land in his very first season as head coach. But for a lot of us, that’s not how Ted Lasso found his way into our hearts, certainly not into our living rooms. For me, it’ll always be Ted… celebrating a moment of joy with his team in a way that you really have to see to understand. And then, even when you see it… I don’t necessarily know that understanding is what we’re doing. Right on, Ted. Do your thing, man. And good luck with the most beautiful game. Do us proud. Go, ‘Murica.”

“Oh. Thank you. Trent Crimm. The Independent. I just wanna make sure I have this right. You’re an American who’s never set foot in England, whose athletic success has only come to the amateur level– a second-tier one at that– and is now being charged with the leadership of a Premier League football club, despite clearly possessing cery little knowledge of the game. Yeah. Is this a fucking joke?”


“Oh, mate. This you? Oh, man! Legend! Can I get an ussie? That’s dope. Well, it’s not ‘myself,’ yeah? It’s ‘us,’ innit? ‘Ussie.’ Wicked. I mean, it’s mental. They’re gonna fucking murder you. Legend.”
