Good read here.
Agreed, for the most part. Of course, he’s already injured to start the season so that’s wonderful. I think that mixture of injuries and the fact that he still doesn’t have a primary position for club and country or, worse yet, they may be playing him in two different roles, have contributed to his stagnation. Hopefully this injury isn’t to long and he can finally put in a full season.
Pretty crazy to see the difference in approach to managerial turnover in these different sports.
Could do with some players outside the top six but looks like a decent set of youngsters here. Sure we’ll be on the lookout.
A bit of information for the uninitiated.
I think the title is incorrect. The author is trying to assert that Muller is in a frustrating position under Guardiola, not that he’s a frustrating player. I don’t agree with that though, considering the player has been an integral part of Guardiola’s plans since the Spanish coach’s arrival. Sure, Robben and Ribery have been injured but Guardiola would be foolish not to find a place for Muller more often than not. He’s also still ahead of Douglas Costa
It definitely is a balancing act for the “middling clubs.” I still think it would be foolish not to go for the Europa League now, especially with guaranteed entry into the Champions League.
If everything falls into place, and Juventus struggle a bit with their changes, then sure. I still think Roma then Napoli are best-placed to challenge Juventus. Inter have made some very big moves though.
I think Ramsey could be Arsenal captaincy material. I was surprised by Cesc Fabregas’ appointment back in the day but I agreed with it at the time. I really am not sure who should get the armband after Per Mertesacker. A solid case is made for Aaron Ramsey here though.
Well, the win in the Community Shield will only reinforce any ideas that we don’t need to spend. We’ll see how that works out.
