    La Liga 2022/23 All Out of Palancas

    Apparently El Sadar, home of Osasuna, won an award for best stadium last year. While these types of polls are always to be taken with a grain of salt, it is a testament to the renovation they completed...

    Dual national Luca Koleosho makes his season debut off the bench for Espanyol. He was born in Connecticut but has played youth tournaments for Canada and the US. He has spent a lot of time in Spain joining the Reus youth teams when he was like 12 (Reus is another Catalan team where I think Shaq...

    Pull the Lever(s): 2022-2023 Barcelona

    Looks like either Memphis or Auba will be gone, with Barca engaged in talks regarding both players. They’re at 7 players for 3 starting spots (and 6 roster spots given Xavi’s stated preference) along with whatever the resolution is to the FDJ situation. How this works out medium to long term...

    Pull the Lever(s): 2022-2023 Barcelona

    And assuming that nothing in this deal is akin to a shell company created by Barcelona- again- this should allow them to register all the players they have introduced and potentially sign one or two more, likely Marcos Alonso.

    La Liga 2022/23 All Out of Palancas

    Season kicks off tomorrow in Pamplona with Sevilla visiting Osasuna. El Sadar is a nice little stadium, and I hope that La Liga broadcasts again begin with that 10-15 minute montage of scenes outside the stadium and a visual tour through it (including locker rooms, media rooms, and team store)...

    Pull the Lever(s): 2022-2023 Barcelona

    At least we know Enron's accountants landed on their feet... A lot of these others rumors I will take as just rumors until something more substantive comes out, from transfers to whatever is going on with FDJ. Spain has several sports dailies that need material, and these types of "stories"...

    The Arms (Errr, Legs) Race: 2022 Summer Transfer Window

    Krostic to Juve, which impacts the USMNT as Fulham were reportedly in on him and he can play LB/LWB. He seems to prefer LW though. View: https://twitter.com/fabrizioromano/status/1556952452934541313?s=21&t=xQNO9pVI0DUXjbjU7uKE4A

    The Arms (Errr, Legs) Race: 2022 Summer Transfer Window

    I think he's a very nice player already. Like most players from the Canary Islands, he's super technical. I do think he could use a little more developmental time though as some of his decision making can improve. He can get a little greedy at times and might be prone to the occasional...

    OM look to be signing Alexis Sánchez so it makes sense for Konrad to find minutes elsewhere. Rumors are all over the place with a couple of the Istanbul giants also interested and making a degree of sense. Marseille have an enormous following in France, finished second last season, and seem...

    The Arms (Errr, Legs) Race: 2022 Summer Transfer Window

    Looks like Wolves are able to take advantage of Valencia’s financial situation to get Guedes. He’s a nice player and I’m curious how he adjusts to the Prem. View: https://twitter.com/fabrizioromano/status/1556316113008476160?s=21&t=vfqygk8osEyjPFJ7KQDhVg

    Thanks as always for this list! It’s amazing how many people I’ve forgotten about. Mix Diskerud?!?! Moving this over here. The answer I would guess is “the same reason as John Brooks”- poor fit for Gregg’s system and open to getting roasted when left in space.

    Want to give a shout to Betis after stumbling on this video from Copa90 (and very glad to see Eli Mengem back at it with another cool series). Joaquin is an absolute riot. Anyways, they have been an awesomely fun team for a few years now, to the point that Sid Lowe has a saying...

    La Liga 2022/23 All Out of Palancas

    For shits and giggles, I entertained the idea of CR7 going to Sevilla and tried to figure out if that was possible. Turns out that Sevilla are yet another big club in Spain that are at their financial limits with regard to their salary structure. They actually had to sell Kounde to register...

    La Liga 2022/23 All Out of Palancas

    I’ll give a general La Liga thread another shot. It’s a super entertaining league in terms of technical quality, pretty accessible to an American audience, and there are several prominent Yanks playing there. We all know the big three and their quality, though I expect Atletico to be a step or...

    Pull the Lever(s): 2022-2023 Barcelona

    Man, I feel for FDJ. I don’t know how many of these moves are contingent on his sale or contract restructuring, but if these deals aren’t finalized Barca fans are gonna vilify him. Part of me wonders if Barca are intentionally bringing players that they can’t register unless FDJ’s current salary...
