If you don't know who he is I have to question your football knowledge. He's a very good player. one that starts every game for England.
I bet he is. Are a EPL fanboy?

You can't expect much from a team that hasn't won a league title for 62 years.

have to say, i was wrong about newcastle. I thought it'd take them longer to make top 4. They're quite lucky this year in the sense that Chelsea and Liverpool were complete fuck ups, but still, kudos

Same. I didn't expect this AT ALL.

Good work by the coach and the coaching staff. It wasn't like they splashed the cash big time after saudis arrived. They spent but not tremendously (tune: Boehly).

They remind me of SAF's United (in his last few seasons)

the spending was smart, I also feel like most of the players got proper minutes, they are unpredictable and full of hard workers

Ofc the question now is can they keep it up. I don't think they are changing the team, maybe another CB is coming

its all about incremental improvement from where they are now - you wanna tweak and refine, not overhaul

The biggest surprise to me is Joelinton. Dude transformed from an average attacker to a strong midfielder in the course of last two seasons.

Also Botman has been a rock at the back. He reminds me of Vidić

How could you not expect this? :D

Sure, not immediately, but CL participation within 2 years was pretty much a given.

I think most people were surprised that there wasn't really a big transfer coming into Newcastle and yet they managed to achieve their goals for this season.

Also Saint-Maximin didn't really have a big season, barely played, only scored a goal... their only (?) flop of the season?

He’s replaced by Isak, tbf he’s winger and plays widely, not really focusing on scoring, mostly breaking line and creating space for others. Moreover Newscastle has problem with attack overall, they have low score on top of table.

There is absolutely no player I would want from Leicester, maaaaaaaaaybe Soyuncu, because he would probably be good enough for our bench. Tielemans is off the table because we have 3 players that could play in his role (Bro, Asllani, Hakan)

Absolutely against Ndidi, who is their biggest flop this season. I also lost all my faith in Iheanacho.

Soyuncu is already an Atlético Madrid player.

Liverpool need a complete reset. This Klopp core is old and in decline. Henry hasn't shown a willingness to spend in a few years now. I suspect we're going to start hearing Klopp out rumors by the middle of next season.
