    2020/21 UEFA Champions League: The Road to Istanbul (Not Constantinople)

    Madrid look old and slow. Ramos is already on a yellow, now that the game is gone he's definitely getting a second one in the last few minutes, right?

    This feels perfectly set up for a Madrid gut punch, like a cheap VAR penalty or something. You can't waste that many good chances to put a team away and get away with it.

    Tottenham Hotspur 20/21: José se foi.

    This is skewed a little by Jose mostly only playing Bale at home against weaker sides. Bale's goals have come against Brighton, Burnley, Palace, Southampton, and Sheffield United, all in home games.

    Mourinho getting rehired so quickly may also save Spurs a lot of money in severance.

    Sheffield United are not good but ... why couldn't Spurs have played like this all year? This is such a massive improvement.

    At least they are looking in the right places, at progressively oriented managers with experience developing players and not at another big-name retread. Ragnick would be an odd choice though because he has a front office management role at RB, a role Levy normally keeps for himself.

    Damn, I liked ten Hag. Maybe Ajax demanded more than Levy wanted to pay to let ten Hag out of his contract.

    City averaged 101 league goals the last three years; they are on page for 79 this season. City averaged 85 xG the past three years; they are on pace for 74 this season.

    I'm rooting for Pochettino. City have shifted style this year to focus more on defensive possession and less on all-out attack. It's been very effective, but it's less fun to watch. City-Cheslea has the potential to be dreadfully dull, as anyone who watched their FA Cup semifinal can...

    Tottenham Hotspur 20/21: José se foi.

    Spurs actually have turned over a lot of the Poch-era squa and still have a fair amount of youngish/early-prime talent: Dele (25), Ndombele (24), Lo Celso (25), Hojbjerg (25), Winks (25), Reguilon (24), Sanchez (24), Bergwijn (23), Rodon (23), Sessegnon (20). Kane is only 27 and Son 28 -- not...

    Please not Southgate or Martinez. I'd be ok with Rodgers or Potter. Not sure Spurs are a step down from Leicester. Leicester have been better than Spurs the last two seasons but Spurs have a lot more financial power and don't have to regularly sell their best players any more.

    Gameweek 33: Not Super, Just Regular Leagues

    Yes, they do. Disappointed in Mason's approach. What was the point of firing Mourinho if Spurs were just going to leave their best passers on the bench, sit deep, and look to break on the counter?

    Somehow we're 76 minutes in and this is still 0-0? I'll take it.
