    Maybe switch to a back 3 so Trent is now a wing back?

    In Rugby, all head injuries are evaluated by an independent doctor and if there is any any one of a specific list of symptoms there is a mandatory 11 day rest period for the player before they are re-evaluated.

    2022 Dolphins: Our coach is cooler than yours

    I'm ecstatic by their start, but I wouldn't be shocked if they lose on Thursday. I think yesterday's game exhausted them physically and mentally. Still, if someone had offered me 3-1 after 4 games I would've bitten their hand off.

    UCL Group Stage MW 2: The Balls Are Frozen

    Okay, I've just found a rule that I think should definitely be changed. Napoli had a penalty against Rangers. It was saved but the rebound was converted by another Napoli player (not the penalty taker). However, VAR showed that that player entered the box before the penalty was struck. Now...

    Other than Diaz, every Klopp signing had taken a while to bed in and look good. I expect Nunez will be good eventually (I trust their scouting and recruitment)

    22/23 Barcelona: Pull the Lever(s)

    The simple answer is that Slavia didn’t. The Czech league runs a split system. The 16 teams all play each other twice (so each team plays 30 matches), then the league splits into 3 groups (Top 6, Middle 4, Bottom 6).

    Liverpool 2022/23: We Go Again

    I will be absolutely shocked if the game against Chelsea isn’t postponed due to police being needed for the Queen’s funeral. Arsenal’s Europa match on Thursday just got postponed for that reason.

    Arsenal 22-23: Time to Deliver the Goods

    Arsenal’s Europa League match against PSV on Thursday is postponed due to lack of police (due to the Queen’s funeral). I wonder why they didn’t just reverse the fixtures and have Arsenal play at PSV this week?
