nemanja-matic

Conventional wisdom holds that Manchester United will be buying four new player this summer transfer window- a defender, striker, holding midfielder and a winger. On the striker front- it appears to be Alvaro Morata (here’s a link to the latest on that). In the back line, Victor Lindelof seems to be the guy and he might be the first transaction completed (here’s a link to the latest on that).

Regarding a holding midfielder, the idea here is that Jose Mourinho would be able to find a guy who could get the very best Paul Pogba return on investment. The club extended Michael Carrick another year, but this summer they’re reportedly seeking a long term anchor. Perhaps it could be Nemanja Matic.

TEAM-USA-soccer-2014-fifa-world-cup

Generally speaking, soccer fans in the US get a lot of stick. Most of it stems from the fact they call it ‘soccer’ instead of ‘football.’ What fans back in Europe don’t seem to understand is that American Football is the number one sport over here.

Then the Blues take on mid-table West Bromwich Albion at the Hawthorns next Friday, with a very likely chance of officially clinching the title.
