    Pretty brutal for Villa if they don’t turn this whole half of a man advantage into more than a point.

    Atwell is having real trouble managing Leeds/Villa. It’s not gonna end 11 vs. 11.

    Liverpool 2022/23: We Go Again

    I wonder if Klopp has just gone stale with this group of players. The drop in pressing particularly sets that alarm bell off for me. As a Spurs fan it reminds me of the end of Poch, albeit not yet so severe. They’re great, then they’re good and don’t press like they used to, then they’re less...

    The one silver lining for anyone else in the league is that City look worse at the back than usual, it just hasn't mattered. Of course, they have their first choice CBS coming back, so that hole might somewhat close soon.

    Just watched half the video, which was about what I could tolerate. Haaland’s the worst performer of the three, but also keeps mostly to the background. Even at that age a very good sense of positioning.

    The scariest part for me is that you can still see the parts of his game he could work on and he appears to have the work ethic for it. Imagine all this with an even cleaner first touch and a few years familiarity with Pep ball.

    I swear to god if we start this fucking guy over Turner in Qatar... View: https://twitter.com/chrisivey865/status/1576239136930877440?s=21&t=r1deqdAuJ87zGfqjlHfFDA

    I don’t know that the league has changed that drastically since last season when it got them into the CL. If you mean true title contention, you might be right, but they also don’t have the squad to make that run particularly in this year which will badly stretch teams, so hard to pin it on...

    I’d say harsh but entirely plausible red. Very dumb to foul at all though, terrible all around by Emerson.

    USMNT: Hold My Beer

    Curtin's preferred tactical setup is easily a better fit for the current player pool than what we're doing now which I like, but I wonder about how tactically flexible he is. I think that's an underrated need for international managers, who don't get to pick their player pools.

    USMNT: Hold My Beer

    I wonder who the next manager might even be. The only obvious American upgrade is, at current time, in a better job that I don't think he'd want to swap out for USMNT manager. I referenced it a bit earlier jokingly with my Guus Hiddink remarks, but I do somewhat genuinely think that the best...

    USMNT: Hold My Beer

    I think him starting makes the most sense because he can link up like Berhalter theoretically wants but also has the physicality to adjust and go more direct if needed. Pepi theoretically gives you that as well, but is on much worse form than Sargent at least so far in the season. You then...

    USMNT: Hold My Beer

    Well, I have seen this team look good at some various points in this cycle, so just hope Musah's back and we can catch some of that lightning in a bottle when it counts I guess. I'm very worried about Berhalter's VOGH* stats though Value over Guus Hiddink, or insert similar two-decade...

    USMNT: Hold My Beer

    I do think it might indicate that this team has one coherent way to progress the ball right now which is "dump it to Musah". They look lost for ball progression ideas without him.
