Certainly possible, but that's what everyone said about Fulham and Forest this year and there's a good chance none of the newly promoted teams are relegated.

Yes but mainly because Leicester, Everton,  & Chelsea are having historically terrible relegation years.

I love seeing the new clubs stay up.  I think sheffield will stay up next year.  Burnley is a standard prem team.

Luton needs a $10m investment just to get their grounds up to PL minimum standards.   There is no way they can compete.

I honestly believe Conte’s burn it down press conference on his way out torched any opportunity Tottenham had at hiring a high profile manager. A fighter like conte taking a defeatist attitude is a foreboding look into the clubs goings on.

Conte's not exactly a fighter. He's bailed on every job he's had just as soon as his demands weren't met, torching his former club on his way out.

At least Mou was entertaining as he flamed out.

That was absolutely nuts.
I'll stick with my opinion on Gold.  He'll be in foul trouble within the first eight minutes.

Imagine being the fan that shredded his ticket to the home leg after they lost 4-0, only for them to score at 90+8 to force extra time, then won on penalties. Wild.

An historic win by the Owls, still catching my breath. I haven’t screamed that loudly in a long time, what heart. On to Wembley! Que sera sera! WAWAW!

Nuts indeed, yeah those who tore up the ticket missed out on something special.

Not just the 98th minute equalizer, then going down in ET via an own goal and still pulling one back.  2023, year of the unexpected Owl triumphs

https://meninred97.com/jesse-marsch-very-close-to-usmnt-appointment/

I like Jesse Marsch a lot but this is a meh for me.  Happy that its not another MLS hire, but seems lik a settle.  I think he'll be great for the changing room, but I'm concerned he'll be stubborn and rigid with his tactics, which won't work.

Especially when the full squad only gets together a few times a year. Maybe that schedule will convince him to be more flexible though?

How about the fact, if true, they aren't announcing until after the gold cup?? Only so many chances and so much time to get the players together. Start now. Dumb to waste the gold cup (and nations cup?)

He won a scudetto with juventus and inter. Europa league with inter. Fa cup with Chelsea. Premier league with Chelsea. He’s built culture quickly at three different elite teams and won the league and additional trophies at each stop. You’re right though. He’s a winner not a fighter. No wonder he didn’t work out at Tottenham.

The speculation was around for a while so it’s definitely not a shock. He would be the most experienced manager we’ve ever had and his demeanor lends itself to a tournament setting. I really like it if it goes through. personality wise - he’s  the perfect guy to lead the team through a WC cycle on home soil.

Realistically, the best hire usmnt could muster. Huge bonus he’s American too.

You had over 4,000 suggestions and somehow the Milwaukee Cheese made the top 64?

I mean the World Cup is three years away. Not having a permanent coach this summer isn’t really a disaster.

Yeah. They're going through a pretty significant organizational overhaul, with a new sporting director who's been on the job for less than a month. Patience seems to be a virtue here. Getting it done right is way more important than getting it done quickly.

Watching the championship playoff. I’m setting the o/u on total points next year in the prem for 20. Smart money will be on the under.
