has sunil gulati in his sights

It’s a step up in the sense that they’re in La Liga and not relegated to their second division. They also recently signed Lee Kang-In on a free so they’re trying this year in a way Schalke was not, and they already have almost half the points Schalke had last season in their first 3 games.Is Mallorca a step up from Schalke? Maybe he’ll have more opportunities for playing time there? For a young/developing player, it doesn’t seem like a slam dunk to me.
Man, totally forgot about this kid. I’m sure others remember him better, but in case you’ve forgotten, his recent hits include:
This whole story is awesome. Fulham was outstanding on this.Not sure it's exactly relevant for this thread but -- Tim Ream, good human being:
The design of that website is a crime against humanity.Looks like we might have a new Yank abroad. Mighten was born in Hartford, moved to England, and has played for the Three Lions at the youth levels.
Grain of salt and all that till it’s official of course.
At least he gets minutes at Forest, unlike others…
Huh. Probably will fly under the radar, but it’s funny to think of the silly Twitter comment Man U fans who were sniffy about this when it was rumored to be Marsch having it actually be Marsch’s much less effective successor.
Oh, for sure, I don't take this as an indictment on fans as a whole. Reasonable people probably trust Rangick to hire his people and also most reasonable people don't care about the coaching staff that much. I was amused nevertheless.So far most fans have approached the rumored hire with an open mind. I mean we all agree Twitter is the cesspool of fan opinion right?
I'll believe it when I see it to be honest. I'm sure Xavi will be given a lot of input on transfers, but I would imagine that they need to be prioritized, and a cheap youngster seems less important to me than some other moves they need to make. Barca had two of the top young right backs in the world in Dest and Emerson, and recently sold Emerson to Spurs. I know Xavi wasn't in charge then, but the club clearly made a call on who was part of the future and who was not. Dani Alves is coming in but he can't be looked at as any sort of every week player at this point. I think most people envision this more as a mentorship for Dest.AS, the Spanish sports paper that is often just one big rumor machine, is reporting today that Xavi has no interest in keeping Dest. It all seems somewhat reactionary to me, but Xavi clearly has a vision of what sort of players he wants.
