Yes very hopeful CHO will stick with Hazard leaving and he could slide in there. As for striker my #1 target is Jovie but seems like Real locked that up quickly so after that there really isn't anyone else out there that is realistic. Giroud extended his deal this morning so I'd imagine we'll go with him and then if Lamps really does get the job maybe Tammy and Michy are in favor as the other 2.

Sarri also didn't do a bad job. Probably a bit of a square peg in a round hole, but he still finished 3rd. I get wanted to replace him, but the expectations were massive.
That's true maybe I should have said good job instead of great. It was also his first year managing so he's also learning on the job and when they hit a bad patch he still rallied the team and got them back in the top 6. In game tactics I've read a lot of good things also so he's definitely growing into the job and as Jug mentioned you hear nothing but good things from his players. If he gets them up to the Prem beating Villa then I'll say he did a great job.

I'd take Icardi too but he's been so back and forth about going/staying at Inter. But yes, after him and Jovic, there is no one else rumored to be available that makes me think appealing and delaying the ban is worth it.

That seems quite cheap for a, relatively speaking, name brand. I guess the financial situation you're walking into would be dire, but still.

I've already sold some of my shoes. Casual office limited my need for them. Unfortunately not quite enough profit to purchase a club in the football league. I want a non league team anyway - what fun is owning a team if you can't drink in the stand?

St Pauli is a rare team actually worth rooting for, and for as far as Buffalo is from fielding anything relevant in soccer I was pretty glad to get to see them play here today

In further 2 Buli news, hoping cgf's Union can pull off the home leg Monday to get into the show next year

Include my name on the list of Union fans. Was a regular at the games, when I lived in Berlin. Union getting promoted would be absolutely amazing for such a small clubb.

Yeah, Kane. And let us all join forces in hoping Sunderland loses in hilarious fashion today. Even if part of me secretly wants them back in the Prem for derby games.

I would keep Kane on the bench in the first half. No way he is ready to play a full game, and with the chance of 30 mins extra time, I would wait playing him.
Liverpool is not gonna be up 2-3 goals at halftime, so the game will be within reach.
