    2020 Summer Transfer Window

    I'll be interested to see how Suarez does this year. Barca and Atleti seem to have completely different perspectives on whether there is a fork sticking out of his back. Barca wants to pay him off to leave a year early even though they have no replacement for him at all and even though he is...

    Just lost up front on that play. Oh well. Loved the competitiveness and fight of the team.

    Bad call, worse execution.

    Nice play design.

    Chelsea 20-21: Plastic Fans and Shiny New Toys

    I think there is a good chance that Lampard will eventually have to start Giroud or Tammy with this group. Werner really seems much more suited to play as a wide forward coming in from the left than a CF and him constantly switching with Havertz in the middle, like in the first half today...

    Arsenal 20-21: Artetenal and/or Kia Joorabchian Futebol Clube

    Hopefully that match shatters any illusions that the team as currently constituted is good enough, especially in midfield.

    Smash and grab job. West Ham were the better side and very unlucky to lose.

    Bundesliga 20-21: Bayern and 17 other teams

    I saw the highlights of that match and while Schalke were terrible, that Gnabry-Lewa-Sane frontline is just lethal.

    Liverpool 2020-2021: Jurgen's Heroes

    I love the move for Thiago, especially for the cost. Yes, he is relatively old and has a bad injury history, but he's a special player who will give the side a different dimension in terms of creativity and control in the middle of the park. Liverpool are nearing the end of a cycle with many...

    Bundesliga 20-21: Bayern and 17 other teams

    Its interesting to me that more isn't made of the relatively high rates of scoring in the Bundesliga. I think they had around 3.2 goals per game over the last couple years, as opposed to 2.5 - 2.8 in the other major leagues. That's like 15-25% more goals, which really isn't negligible.

    Tottenham Hotspur 20/21: WE GOT ALEX MORGAN!

    Shifting to a back three would definitely be a departure for Mourinho. But I don't think he has ever regularly fielded a 4-2-3-1 or 4-3-3 team with two wingers as attack oriented as Son/Bale and with two fullbacks as attack-oriented as Reguilon/Doherty. His preference has generally been to...

    Tottenham Hotspur 20/21: WE GOT ALEX MORGAN!

    That makes sense. Realistically, Bale isn't going to play every match anyway given his injury history. And since Bale and Son could play together in this system pretty well when Kane needs rest or gets hurt you might not need to buy the long sought backup CF.

    Tottenham Hotspur 20/21: WE GOT ALEX MORGAN!

    If Spurs get Bale and Reguilon it really does like a team increasingly suited to a 3-4-3 system. Doherty is really a wingback, Reguilon an attacking fullback, and Bale is certainly not the kind of RW that will track back a lot and cover for a marauding fullback in a four man defense. I think...

    It sounds like Tottenham will agree to the buyback clause but United won't and that is potentially the deciding factor.

    2020 Summer Transfer Window

    United and Spurs are both heavily linked to Real Madrid LB Sergio Reguilon and to a loan for Bale. Interesting to see how that shakes out. If Spurs do sign Reguilon, I wonder whether it means a transition to a 3-4-3 system. He seems generally regarded to be an attacking LB and they already...

    2020 Summer Transfer Window

    I don't really understand the Depay signing from Barca's point of view. Assuming that Suarez leaves, they need a true center forward who can lead the line, occupy the attention of the CBs, and create some space for their wingers and attacking midfielders to operate. Depay has never been that...

    Arsenal 20-21: Artetenal and/or Kia Joorabchian Futebol Clube

    We are heavily rumored to be on the verge of signing Icelandic keeper Rúnar Alex Rúnarsson from Dijon to replace Emi for a very small fee in the area of 1.5m. From what I can tell from the very limited info out there, he is pretty good with his feet (basically a must given our style of play)...
