  1. Why it's hard to trust Arsenal assets in 2019/20 17 days, 3 hours ago

    It seems my brief summary at the end has been accidentally cut off for some reason. Sorry about that 🙁There doesn't appear to be a lot of cases of significant reduction in overall placement following qualification for Europa League, and if there is a noticeable negative change, it is largely only affecting non-"top-6" sides (aside from 2015/16 Liverpool).Many of the teams seem to have had additional extenuating circumstances that likely contributed to their drop in table position (see Villa 2010/11 and West Ham 2016/17). Only Newcastle 12/13, Everton 14/15, and Burnley 18/19 had any significant drop without other extenuating circumstances, not accounting for injuries that may have occurred during the EL season in questionHowever, I do not know the details of the teams' rotation patterns, runs of form, or individual match performances, so take this with a grain of salt. » Read

  3. How to cover Liverpool defence after price hikes 22 days, 6 hours ago

    O'Connell is one to watch. Almost plays like a fullback in Sheffield United's overlapping center backs system and is an aerial threat on set-pieces (3 goals and 4 assists last season iirc) » Read

  4. How to cover Liverpool defence after price hikes 22 days, 6 hours ago

    I think Pascal Gross could be a hidden gem for a more attacking Brighton under Graham Potter, but midfield choice is so crowded with good options (Siggy, Brooks, Fraser, Redmond, Maddison, Zaha) » Read
