EPL teams will have to step up next season because La Liga teams are dominating Europe. Last 3 EL won by Sevilla and last 3 CL won by Madrid, Barca, and one of the Madrids this year. With the quality of managment next season, maybe EPL teams can raise to the occasion and end the La Liga reign.
kinglucas, this wont happen overnight unless top epl clubs buy world class players from top 4 clubs.

IMO league should be formed keeping in mind it develops players of its own country. Now question is that are young english players more talented than young spanish players? No!! this is why most of the midtable spanish clubs are better than epl midtable clubs. we ll have to promote youth players on the high level like they do but unfortunately tv money will prevent that from happening. tv money would buy them(midtable clubs) some ready made big game players but it won't be of any use as long as crop of young talented english players don't get chance to play at the top level regularly.
Ya no arguments there Spain has more talent atm, but there is another way around that. I think if teams get players under 18 they will be considered home grown. So top EPL teams need to start scouting like the King of Scouting aka Arsene Wenger.
KingLucas, that's a good idea only until the Spanish teams start crying about their players DNA and want the ahers to force a move back
Mourinho has arrived by bus, which will remain parked on Old Trafford's pitch for the duration of his contract.
+3
was that bus still parked when real madrid scored 121 goals in a season which is stilla record
+5
Real Madrid are not Manchester United.
Well that makes no sense. Until recently we used to score goals for fun.

At the end of the day Mourinho could get United back on track.

@Ultragerrard - you should know better.
Next year will be one heck of a season. Klopp, Mourinho, Guardiola, Wenger, Pochettino, Raneiri, Bilic, Koeman. What a collection of managers. If only LVG remained and Benitez didnt get relegated. This would be the most fearsome collection of managers in a single league for a long time.
+1
But there's only one Alan Pardew ;)

In all seriousness though, don't forget Conte
+1
^I totally forgot. His is a name most people forget, but his face sure isnt. Lol.
Count Conte
Lol Benitez

Is the transfer window earlier this year due to the Euros and Copa America? I am having trouble understanding how all these clubs are due to confirm transfers before July
Everyone realized that the transfer battle is won or lost early in the window.

Also yes, once the players are out for Euros and Copa they cannot be involved in negotiations, signings etc. So yes, that is another important reason too

I think the transfer window remains the same but clubs are getting business done early
Arsenal - Xhaka
Liverpool - Karius
Man City - Gundogan
Man Utd - Mourinho/Zlatan?
Chelsea - Waiting for Conte


All the big clubs are making moves, however spurs have been really quiet, quite suspicious really
+1
Windows timing never changes but an agreement can be reached anytime of the year between Clubs and players.

So clubs can have a deal lets say in feb but they can only register players during the time transfer window in open.

Yesterday Liverpool confirmed Karius signing , but as of now he can't represent Liverpool in an official match , for that they have to register him first and that can be only done during the transfer window.

@Tomikato , Players do get involved in transfers during the NT tournaments , though most players prefer to avoid transfer during a major tournament to remain focus. Usually its players agents that do the negotiations with clubs for a transfer.

Now THAT is some proper socialism if i've ever seen one...Marx would be proud
+3
Lol so u guys got an extra million from the league for finishing over Spurs.

Has anyone see something similar for the championship? Would be interesting to see.
lol KingLucas, and yes CheshireCat, Karl Marx sure is proud with that xD
I am sure most of u know there is more than 1 international competition happening this summer and that is the Copa America. Here is the squad for Argentina, the number 1 ranked team in the world.

Goalkeepers: Sergio Romero (Manchester United), Nahuel Guzmán (Tigres), Mariano Andujar (Estudiantes)

Defenders: Facundo Roncaglia (Fiorentina), Marcos Rojo (Manchester United), Nicolas Otamendi (Manchester City), Ramiro Funes Mori (Everton), Gabriel Mercado (River), Jonatan Maidana (River), Victor Cuesta (Independiente).

Midfielders: Javier Mascherano (Barcelona), Augusto Fernández (Atlético Madrid), Matías Kranevitter (Atlético Madrid), Éver Banega (Sevilla), Lucas Biglia (Lazio), Erik Lamela (Tottenham), Javier Pastore (Paris Saint Germain).

Forwards: Lionel Messi (Barcelona), Gonzalo Higuaín (Napoli), Sergio Agüero (Manchester City), Ángel Di María (Paris Saint Germain), Nicolás Gaitán (Benfica), Ezequiel Lavezzi (Hebei Fortune)

When u look at the team, it is mind boggling. There are a lot of deserving players and potential match winners(Tevez, Dybala, Mussachio, Garay etc.) left out of the team. It is almost like the coaching staff are missing up the team on purpose. Argentina are clear favorites to win the tournment. Anything besides the trophy will be disappointing. Maybe the coaches saw some thing the fans have not.
-------------Aguero-------------

Gatian-------Messi-------Di Maria

----Mascherano-----Pastore------

Rojo----Oat---Funes Mori----Mercado

---------------Romero-------------

Or

Gatian----------Aguero----------Messi

---------Pastore---------Di Maria----

----------------Mascherano------------

---------------Same back 5------------

Even tough Huguain had a great season I think Aguero edges him slightly and this is a more balanced team.
how come the Copa America is happening this year as well. I Looked through the history and theres not exactly a pattern like with the world cup and euros
"The competition is a celebration of the centenary of CONMEBOL and the Copa América, and is to be the first Copa América hosted outside of South America."

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Copa_Am%C3%A9rica_Centenario
Tata is the manager, enough said.
+2
Argentina's issue has always been third tier managers. The last good manager they had was Bielsa, it was downhill from there. More like free falling with Maradona.
+2
i thought some of their stars will be playing in the olympics instead (u23). eg dybala. i remember argentina won the olympics with messi ... or did they come in second? cant remember
Why would they value the Olympics over the Copa America? That logic doesn't make sense for me. That is like a European team saving their star players for the Olympic instead of the Euros. Just deoesn't add up when u think about it.
i have been watching football for last 18 years and if anything i have learnt is that the Strongest team of the tournament(euro cup and world cup) never wins it lol

The reason behind it is that Pressure in these 2 tournaments is sky high! so i am sure argentina is not winning it lol

Kinglucas, the joy of winning a gold medal in olympic is much more than winning ucl or any other trophiy. so i don't think there is need to be surprised. Its a shame that they give more importance to football at club level where it is nothing but pure business and entertainment:(
+1
If they dont win it, I think Tata will be fired due to his sh*ty team selection.
They might have star players but they were never good to watch as a team.
@DrakeWlakers Teams don't play world cup to entertain us by playing attacking football.we have club football for this. They play to win it at any cost!! they can't take risk of playing attacking because error of margin is very small in euro cup/world cup unlike ucl or league. a team make mistake and boom they are out of the tournament. then they wait 4 years to get another opportunity. This is why we don't see many goals in knockout stages. teams play cautious football because there is too much at stake!!
Vardy has a clever way of diving:
He runs past the defender, slows down and sticks back a leg to initiate contact. He did that against West Ham and yesterday he replicated the same dive against Turkey

It will be hard for refs to make a decision because it doesn't look like a dive unless you see a replay
he tricks ref into thinking his fast pace got him down so they award him penalty.
dont think the one yesterday was a dive, the defender tried to stop his momentum, used his hands and then impeded vary as he shielded the ball. throwing yourself infront of the defender not attempting to make a challenge is diving but the defender was trying to win the ball in this case and failed.
I agree that although he was looking for it yesterday, I don't think it was the same type of dive as the one he got a second yellow for
Tbh even the 1 vs west ham wasn't a dive. There was contact. By contact I mean more than a tap on the shoulder.
+5
not all contact is a foul though. shoulder to shoulder is legal for example.

i think throwing yourself in front of a defender is the same as dangling out a leg so you trip over defender. it's artificial contact and cheating, therefore a dive.

and yes there is a difference between shielding the ball and trying to buy contact and going down.

when ashley young does it, people are calling for his execution. when vardy does it, people want to search their feelings for the right answer call it being clever and give him the benefit of the doubt. until he does it to your team.
U can argue its not a penalty, but it is not a dive either. Certainly not something that should get him booked.
Lots of moves, 10-15 years ago would be boo-ed, now are being practiced as an art.. To dive, to create contact, to make the most out of it, to press the referees, to simulate an act, to provoke opponents, in order to win the game.

Sportsmanship? Go and play other games or watch something else.
This is a money sport now and winning earns money, so winning is everything.
+6
It's like drivers who swerve in front of you and slow down so you rear end them :/
saw a really funny graphic today

last 4 years title winners 2013-2016
Ligue 1: psg, psg, psg, psg
Serie A: juventus, juventus, juventus, juventus
Bundesliga: bayern, bayern, bayern, bayern
la liga: fcb, atletico, fcb, fcb,
premier league: utd, city, chelsea, leicester

lol

so much for being competitive. you could probably just place a bet on those other leagues champion next season and be 100% accurate. no clue who wins the league next year in the epl though.
but it won't be like that anymore in epl. Manchester era is starting. it would look like this -

cfc/manchester united/city(since it is first season of pep and mou so cfc will have a chance as well),manchester united/city, manchester united/city,manchester united/city.
Don't be like that @Coorperateeye1 LOL Wenger is a good manager ;)
It has nothing to do with wenger being a good or bad manager. wenger alone can't stop them from winning the title.He does not have the luxury of spending big on players because of our stubborn owner.

wenger will continue to be top top manager as long as he is giving us occasional fa cup title and a guaranteed top 4 finish. but is it enough to keep majority of arsenal fans happy? my answer is NO!
Tumbleweed......
