    Liverpool 2021/2022 Jurgen’s Comeback Tour

    Atletico fan here. I don't know enough about Klopp's system and where Liverpool wants to add skills, but I think Saul would be a fantastic addition (ignoring age, contract, etc.). He's very talented and has the ability to both add to a team's defensive cohesion and score goals. Saul is clearly...

    Pay That Mendes His Money: The Summer 2021 Transfer Thread

    While I'm inclined to think that these rumors are out there just to make some noise, does anyone think there's truth to Trippier's supposed desire to return to England?

    Pay That Mendes His Money: The Summer 2021 Transfer Thread

    Rumors circulating that Barcelona and Atletico are about to make a swap, with Griezmann returning to Atletico and Saul moving to Barca. If it happens, the move both bums me out and really excites me. Saul is a canterano, a player that grew up in the Atletico system, and has been brilliant at...

    Pay That Mendes His Money: The Summer 2021 Transfer Thread

    Great insight. Thanks! And, yes, I'm excited to see how Correa continues to grow as he hits his prime.

    Pay That Mendes His Money: The Summer 2021 Transfer Thread

    Atletico have signed Rodrigo De Paul from Udinese for about 35 million euros. Good business, I think. Simeone does have a penchant for Argentines, though this affinity for his countrymen has backfired at times. That said, De Paul looks like the real deal and seems like a great addition...

    2021 Copa América

    Naturally. A Simeone disciple is expected to exhibit these virtues.

    What Do Now??: Barcelona 2021-2022

    Really good stuff. Thanks for sharing. This year was the first time since 2006-8 that Barca went more than two years without winning the league, and it has been six years since Barca won the Champions League. With this context, I wonder: what is Barcelona trying to accomplish? Are the team's...

    La Liga 2020-2021: The year someone else breaks through?

    Any thoughts on Zidane's departure and what his departure means for the club?

    2020/21 UEFA Europa League: Galloping to Gdansk

    I did not intend to question Zidane's coaching ability. He's an outstanding manager and I think the perfect coach for Real Madrid. While he's been wildly successful, I'm not sure he's obsessed with coaching the way Simeone is or someone like Klopp is. Now, maybe that's an unrealistic bar, but I...

    2020/21 UEFA Europa League: Galloping to Gdansk

    I get the sense that Zidane doesn't really like coaching but liked making $20M or so the last two years.

    2020/21 UEFA Europa League: Galloping to Gdansk

    lol, so De Gea cannot save 11 shots and then misses his own? Absolutely nuts.

    2020/21 UEFA Europa League: Galloping to Gdansk

    I thought that there was some lucky involved, but this stat plus the current match suggest De Gea is just bad at stopping penalties.

    2020/21 UEFA Europa League: Galloping to Gdansk

    I managed to watch about 10 minutes and Villarreal looked very defensive, almost to the point of sacrificing offense. Have they shown any offensive creativity or initiative?

    The best you ever had?

    As someone that never played soccer beyond 6th grade, the best I can do is that I once went to a bachelor party with Kyle Martino.

    Atletico de Madrid, 2020-21: CAMPEONES, CAMPEONES!

    Let's start with the positive, and I'll begin by stating the obvious: Atletico's success was only possible with the signing of Luis Suarez from Barcelona. Suarez was the missing piece. I highly doubt Atletico could have competed for the league title with Morata and Costa, two fine strikers but...

    Atletico de Madrid, 2020-21: CAMPEONES, CAMPEONES!

    Muchas gracias!! Que alegria! I'll provide some thoughts over the next few days. It is an odd season to recap. The league title is something to celebrate and cherish, an amazing accomplishment during an extremely difficult season. First, while Atletico was positioning themselves for the...

    2021 PGA Championship- Kiawah Ocean Course

    Who are the NLU guys? When Tiger won, it was clear that the victory was an emotional release for him. When I watched Phil win, I could not discern his reaction or what his muted reaction meant. It was odd. Prior to the tournament, I got the sense that he really had to reimagine his whole...

    Gameweek 38: This is the end, my beautiful friend, the end

    Thanks, mate. This year is a year of redemption, and that personal motivation to overcome is something special to watch and celebrate. While there are a handful of stories on the team of players trying to prove someone wrong, the one that stands out is Luis Suarez. When the match concluded...
