Tom Brady is wearing a non-contact red #12 jersey. Bill Belichick is standing on the sidelines with his arms folded, looking miserable as always. That can only mean one thing: training camp has begun and football is finally back. This is an exciting time in the sports world. It is also a very serious time, … More An Opening 53-Man Patriots Roster Prediction
Simply incredible. Dominating, suffocating, incredible football. Going into the last preseason match, our very own Liverpool were in horrific form, losing 3 of the 4 matches and tying the other. This match comes 5 days before Liverpool start their season with the glorified friendly that is the Community Shield. Mo, Firmino, Alisson, Keita and Shaq … More Liverpool V. Lyon July 31, 2019 Post-Match Thoughts!
1.) The first thing that I learned from Liverpool’s US Tour really isn’t anything groundbreaking, and it really is as simple as, Liverpool need their front 3 of Firmino, Salah, and Mane back ASAP. Although yesterday against Sporting showed glimpses of fluidity in the final third it is clear to see how deeply missed they … More 5 Things I Learned from Liverpool’s US Tour
A 2-2 draw with Sporting ends Liverpool’s US tour with a sharehold of the Western Union Cup. Overall the US tour was a bit of a slouch for the Liverpool squad losing twice and drawing once, but I’ll touch on that tomorrow. Scoreline apart I thought that Liverpool played pretty well throughout the game. Controlled … More Post Match Thoughts: Liverpool V. Sporting July 24th 2019
The first 30 minutes of this match gave me a lot of confidence in Arsenal’s midfield and attack for next season. I LOVE the 4-2-3-1 we’ve been seeing used with Aubameyang on the right, Ozil in the middle, and Lacazette up front. Ozil is in his best position and Aubameyang looks comfortable on the right … More Lacazette, Aubameyang, and Ozil Shine Against Real Madrid, My Post-Match Thoughts
Since my last blog was published, the one saying goodbye to Guerschon and looking at possibilities for the 15th roster spot, the Celtics have made a few minor moves. First, Carsen Edwards was officially signed to a 4 year guaranteed contract. It is probably insulting to call that minor because Edwards is likely to be … More What is the Roster/Rotation Outlook for the Celtics Right Now?
Well that was certainly a football game. Here in Boston MA, we associate football as a brutal, hard hitting and less fluid sport, which is exactly what we witnessed, American Football. From the get go the Sevilla players looked as though they were going for the neck of each and every Liverpool player. Looking to … More Post Game Thoughts, Liverpool V. Sevilla
Now obviously under Jurgen Klopp’s tactical mastermind last year, our Reds secured their 6th Champions League Trophy. For me to say that Klopp will 100% change his preferred inverted 4-3-3 of last year would be absolutely ludicrous. Luckily for the Reds they could stick with their 4-3-3 for the majority of the year mostly because … More Is the 4-2-3-1 the future of Klopp’s Liverpool?
Arsenal started the game with a pretty standard lineup, so I won’t talk about a lot of the players who played tonight because we’ve seen them play a thousand times before (Xhaka, Mustafi, Kolasinac, Sokratis, Monreal, etc.). It’s just not worth anybody’s time. Moving on, the one person who snuck into the starting 11 tonight … More Youth Steal the Show in Arsenal’s Win Over Bayern, My Post-Match Thoughts
Imagine a player of world class ability who can function in any of 4 roles in the Liverpool system, while knowing said system INSIDE AND OUT. Now imagine that theoretically you can get him for free or almost free, theoretically of course. Obviously that’s a no brainer, sign him up and bring him aboard! Unfortunately … More Is Bringing Back Coutinho the Answer to Overthrow City?
