and #$!&@ Mexico more. Draw suits me fine.
Confeds Cup is so weird...how can Australia be Asian but New Zealand is Oceania? Oceania only has 10 teams, all ranked like 180 and above in the world. 4 years from now you'll have Qatar playing in it.

Australia opted into the Asian federation like 10 years ago so they could face tougher competition and be in better shape when World Cup rolls around

That Vidal no look pass was filthy good.
But video replay takes it away (2nd goal today disallowed by video)

SkyBet has Patrick Vieira as a 5/4 favorite to land the Saints managerial opening; Pelligrino is at 7/4 and De Bour is at 6/1.

Salah will be finalized tomorrow. Will we switch to 343 to keep all our attackers out there? Or keep 433 and rotate, good problems to have.

Took an extra day but Salah is officially a red and will wear #11, so assume Firmino switches to 9.
So much speed in our attack now.
I would really like Sakho to come back to save us splashing out massive money for someone who is barely an upgrade. Need a real left back (unless we go 343) and another CDM. If Studge leaves we'll need a striker.

He was fantastic at Roma. All the soccer stat head types are in love.

From the little I've seen of him it does feel like a good fit. You'll have such ridiculous pace up front. I can see you playing a bit like Mourinho's last full year at Chelsea, four creative/pacey types playing fluidly

We're going after Ox. What a midfield bench we'd have.
Would finally have the kind of depth to allow us to competed on multiple fronts.

Would much rather spend money on a center mid and a left back and a center back in roughly that order.
