Credit to City, we didn't lose a game in the league in 2022 and it still wasn't enough.

Pulisic has taken Chelsea FC off his instagran bio.....he must be on the move or at least wants out of Chelsea.

So where does he end up, where would be a good spot for him to end up?

Duff thats a really hard question to answer directly. There are just so many parts to that puzzle. But here are the things that would strongly influence my decision. In order of importance (beyond the obvious that it needs to be a team in one of the big 5 European leagues).

 

1. The coach of the new team. You want a solid coach who is going to play Puli in a system that maxes his potential and not have him moving all over the pitch from one match to the next.

2. It needs to be a team where he would start most every match. Don't transfer to another team that has a bunch of really good wingers fighting for playing time.

3. A club that has historically been accepting of American players. All season long Chelsea fans tended to blame Pulisic for all their woes.

4. A club that has qualified for UCL or Europa or at least is in the upper half of their domestic league. We have seen how he plays when he feels like he has to be the guy to make things happen. He dribbles way too much. He needs to be on a team with some decent talent around him.

 

Now if I could just pick a club out of thin air?

 

Leeds. American coach. Pair him up with Aaronson and Adams and you have a world class core. And Leeds has the money to afford this.

I’m thinking Liverpool to raise the cup, over 6 corners and over 1.5 goals. Should pay about even $

Would be fun to see him on a resurgent Newcastle as well

DeBruyne named EPL player of the year. No surprise there.

Still should've been Salah in my opinion. If Liverpool wins the title does he get it over KDB?

Hard to say Luke. Certainly Salah did plenty to get the POY. Led the league in goals and assists. But DeBruyne is just so strong end to end. W/O him Salah doesn't begin to score like he can with Kevin on the field.

Sonny won the share of the boot taking no pens. I’ll take Son over Salah

Rumors are the Spurs are going after Weston McKennie and expect an offer in the next couple of weeks. Would be a terrific move for Weston and the Spurs.

 

His box to box play would work so well with Son and Kane.

They liked him the last few transfer windows. I think it’s Paratici who signed him at Juvi.

Spurs are on the up baby. Let’s go

Looking forward to the new season.  I don't get out like I used to for matches but have heard that Baltimore has had a NBC bounce for the popularity of the Premier League.  Good stuff.

Also I do not not think that there has ever been a time where Newcastle, the Ravens, and the Orioles have all been good at the same time.  Decent shot this year.

Hey all here's my look at the upcoming EPL season. Should be a really good year with a 6 or 7 teams with legit shots to take a UCL (top 4) spot. As far as the title chase...tough to imagine its anything but a two horse race.
