I've already started convincing myself that Potter will be a good hire

i know it's hard to find a good LB but i wouldn't be sad if reguilon is gone. he used to put in good crosses more consistently but that's tapered off. he tends to have some bad touches and uses his speed to compensate. defensively, his positioning isn't great and he's too slight to be a FB in the PL.

there's just too many players on this team i want replaced but realistically, they can't afford that much turnover.

I think like caddy said, bring Sess back and hope he's ready. I wouldn't be upset of Real wanted to recall Reguilon but don't see why they would want to.

And yeah, Dier, Sanchez, Winks, Lamela, probably Davies and even GLC but no way they can sell all of them. Let some of the youth start seeing minutes like Tanganga, Skipp, Sess and see what happens

There’s a very useful forward moving player in Reguilon, even if my thoughts are biased toward early season and Sevilla days. “Sess/Skipp will improve things” is heavy Spurs mindset, I hope it’s true

I think Skipp can add needed depth behind Hojberg. Not convinced Sess is an upgrade over Reguilon. Lopetegui would be interesting for Reguilon.

Wow. That really looked a pen to me. The drama of City getting another bite at the cherry to win the league from the spot would have been tasty.

By the standards of top 4 clashes, this has been really fun.

I honestly dont know if thats a penalty or not, even after seeing it 30 times, like Zouma didnt really do anything, but...

huge 3 points though!

Agree. I know it's a bit Spursy to hope they'll come in and help, but Skipp has been getting rave reviews all season at Norwich and wasn't awful when he played in the first squad as an 18 year old, so I think there's a good player there. Sessegnon has always be a project type player, a lot more boom/bust imo.

there's talent on the squad, the hire's gotta be a manager who can sort it out. i don't think lo celso, ndombele, alli gave their best consistently under mourinho, and if they can get in better form together and start playing for each other more, it might be enough to overcome the bad defense that will take time to solidify.

but those 3 players seem to not be versatile enough to create and score goals together. if that can get sorted, it would be a tremendous boost. they haven't played much together but from what i've seen it doesn't seem probable.

I think Wolves should be allowed to play 11 on 10 every game IMO

fran kirby is absolutely insane, in recent years both sam kerr and pernille harder have been called the best in the world, but kirby has been much better than both this season

chelsea women 30 minutes away from winning the title

Would have been an outstanding own goal there by Jorginho

If Chelsea wins the CL final and finishes 3rd or 4th, who gets that extra CL spot?

A Prem team is going to win Champs no matter what and Man U might win Europa so does that matter? If so it would just go to 5th place Prem team?

I found the answer. Basically All the leagues move up a round. Turkey's winner would enter the group stage instead of the playoff qualifying.

If the Champions League title holders qualify for the group stage via their domestic league, the following changes to the access list will be made:
The champions of association 11 (Turkey) enter the group stage instead of the play-off round.
The champions of association 13 (Denmark) enter the play-off round instead of the third qualifying round.
The champions of association 15 (Czech Republic) enter the third qualifying round instead of the second qualifying round.
The champions of associations 18 (Greece) and 19 (Serbia) enter the second qualifying round instead of the first qualifying round.

Yeah it doesn't matter for English teams, if ManU wins Europa there's no extra spots for an EPL team. That only happens if a non top 6 team auto qualifies for UCL or UEL.
