    Certainly the earlier part of last season hurt, giving up too many draws (several in the early period when Kane was hurt). But it is worth remembering that they finished with 86 points, which is really good! Enough to win the league in some seasons. A fast start at Wembley does feel crucial, proving that they can win there, make it their home (if temporarily), and be genuine contenders for the title. I expect resurgent Manchester clubs, so it won't be easy regardless.

    Meanwhile, in MLS, I've been a season ticket holder at Red Bulls for 7 years now. It's clear the team misses Dax McCarty, but the "good" thing about MLS is that the regular season is less important--if Tyler Adams can round into the player he's expected to be, and if they can add a CB and speed on the wings in the transfer window, we may have a shot in November.
    I honestly thought that Dax had retired.
    That is the land of lost content, I see it shining plain, the happy highways where I went and cannot come again.

    The UK would be nice! Especially seeing as it hasn't been held here since 1966.

    It was a friendly match but the fact that Colombia was able to almost defeat Spain says a lot about their team, specially James.

    Just got an alert on my phone from Bleacher Report saying Zlatan Ibrahimovic was released by Manchester United after just one season with the Red Devils.

    yup

    and it looks like Costa is out at Chelsea as well, allegedly Antonio Conte texted him to tell him that he was not a part of any future plans

    Yeah, I can't say I'm completely surprised, a little bit but not completely.

    As for Liverpool, the Van Dijk situation has turned into a bit of a shambles frankly.

    That injury did Zlatan in. I bet if he didn't get injured he'd be there for another year.

    Bad form for Conte to tell Costa via text, but I'm not surprised he wants him gone. I can imagine Costa being a bit of a nightmare to manage.

    It does make the transfer market more exciting when 2 big clubs need new strikers though!

    Costas existence is bad form
