Yeah, I don't think they are going to play next Saturday when the funeral is going on. I know logistics are tough, but maybe they will move all games to Sunday - they can't go past that day because it's an international break.

The other issue is the European competitions next week. Chelsea and Arsenal are hosting in London on Wednesday and Thursday.  Liverpool and City are as well but those might be easier.

No way European competitions get postponed. The group stages have to be done before the WC.  FA Cup Replays will be gone, but even with that the scheduling will be a nightmare.

I am wondering if the London clubs will try to swap home games with the clubs visiting next week.  Or maybe all will be good.

You can make up this weeks games by playing over a couple of weeks at the same time as Europe in the Spring, but UEFA doesn't like that.

She isn't even buried yet, someone should say "oops, we were mistaken, she's alive" and Weekend at Bernie's the Queen until the International break.

I know this is a joke, but there is a non-zero chance that this actually would have happened if she died during the WC and England were playing well into the latter stages.

Bet they wish they would have played this weekend with the funeral not taking place until Monday.

Premier League
@premierleague

The #PL will resume this weekend after a pause to the season as a mark of respect following the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
Seven of the 10 Matchweek 8 fixtures will be played, with three postponed due to events surrounding The Queen’s funeral.

Not sure I get Pepi over Haji or Pefok. Would also think that this now officially ends Brooks international career.

Pepi call up makes ZERO sense to me.  I think he's got a ton of potential, obviously, but his club form has been pretty mediocre.  He hasn't scored since leaving MLS.  Meanwhile Haji has been scoring for fun and Pefok has had a nice start in Berlin.  Also not sure why Arriola is still getting significant run.  I'll keep my mouth shut about Morris cause thats just not worth it and never gonna change.

I'll disagree on Brooks though.  I think its a form/playing time issue more than anything.  He was club-less since leaving Wolfsburg in March.  Now that he's with Benfica, if he gets significant time, I think he's back in the picture.  He's not yet 30 and has tons of experience.

Pepi over Pefok sucks. He's been so bad since the move overseas. Hard to imagine a world where he gets hot enough to make the WC team at this point, so why bother?

Brooks left off after his time off makes sense in a vacuum, but there's obviously something between him and Greggggg. Can still see him contributing for Jesse Marsch's USMNT in the next cycle.

An entertaining half hour.

Truly pathetic display this morning. Ferrera missing an absolute sitter will not help the “where’s pefok” crowd. Horrendous miss.

Center back pairing just embarrassing.

Playing a high line when you cant hold possession is such a gregggggggg tactical decision.

A complete embarrassment.

Well, at least least England just got relegated, and have looked pretty awful for a while now.  Should be a very interesting group.

I don't know how much of an indicator the Nations League is, but Wales hasn't been all that good either.

Their stars are aging and not in good form.  Bale played only 40 league games total in the last 3 years and is now playing below his depth significantly.  Ramsey hasn't played much recently and is a shell of his star self.  Joe Allen is no longer a EPL level talent.  Their keepers are backups.

Oh, and their manager wasn't successful...at the League 1 and League 2 level, much less running a national team

Yep. The more I look at the group, the more I think the US should get out of it and it's a failure if they don't. There may not be a pushover in the group and Iran is a tricky game, but they and Wales are both clearly at a lower level than the US.

I don't hate Berhalter, but assuming the squad is mostly healthy, he is my main concern going into November.
