It’s a long and winding road to the NBA Finals as the NBA playoffs began on April 12th, but the final series doesn’t commence until May 30th. Yes, the NBA postseason is indeed a two month marathon, not a sprint and in the end, it’s all about answering this question- who will end up facing the Golden State Warriors?

And can anyone even provide a challenge to Golden State in the final round? Let’s take a look at who you might see taking on the super team of all super teams from the Bay Area in the season finale.

nfl draft

We have 2020 vision, NFL Draft style, for the first time, right here, right now. It’s our first ever 2020 NFL mock draft, and the order, for now was simply replicated from 2019. Team needs, nor the 2019 NFL mock draft (which you can view over at this link), were taken into account.

As we have a whole draft, and two rounds of free agency to go through, it’s just too early to factor in team needs. Obviously this will be modified and reworked hundreds, if not thousands of times between now and 2020 NFL Draft day. Enjoy!

Manchester City Starting XI Prediction (Manchester Derby)

Share

manchester city

Manchester City won the home edition of the Manchester derby this season 3-1 back in November, and they are heavily favored to take reverse fixture as well. If United, who looked as shambolic as possible on Easter Sunday in a 4-0 loss to Everton are to win at Old Trafford in mid-week, it would be a massive upset.

The only good thing that could be said about United’s dismal showing yesterday is that they have no more time to dwell on it and must move on quickly. For City, they have to win in order to stay on pace with Liverpool for the league title, so they will certainly head into the rescheduled Manchester derby with guns blazing.

Manchester United Starting XI Prediction (Manchester Derby)

sir alex old trafford man united

You know circumstances are really dire when the manager of a given football team 1.) feels compelled to apologize to all the supporters of the side and 2.) openly questions whether or not the players actually even care right now.

Yet that is the state in which we, all who follow Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Manchester United, find ourselves right now. On one hand, facing the juggernaut that is Manchester City, especially at a time like this when they are highly motivated, it certainly not the way to fix what is broken.

manchester derby

Wednesday night brings the 44th Premier League edition of the Manchester derby, and the 178th competitive meeting between the two clubs. The red side of Manchester has emerged victorious in 73 of the previous meetings, with the blue side claiming wins on 52 occasions. The two sides, which have played to 56 stalemates, are two teams going in completely opposite directions right now.

City have been nearly unstoppable in 2019, and their treble hopes are still very much alive, here in late April. United, on the other hand, have reached new lows not previously seen in the post Sir Alex Ferguson era.

Arsenal FC heads to Wolverhampton Wanderers Wednesday night in a match-up that has major implications near the top and the middle of the Premier League table. For Arsenal, they are trying to hold on to fourth place, and with it the final UEFA Champions League qualification slot.

For Wolves, they are looking to leapfrog three teams and claim the seventh place spot, which could bring a UEFA Europa League berth along with it. Wolves have never beaten Arsenal in Premier League play, and this will be the tenth meeting in this competition.

Arsenal FC missed out on a golden opportunity yesterday to put some space between themselves and the other two teams that are vying for fourth place in the Premier League table. The Gunners fell at home to Crystal Palace on Easter Sunday 3-2, just hours after sixth place Manchester United put in what was arguably the worst performance of the post Sir Alex Ferguson era for them.

United are just two points behind the Gunners, but it remains to be seen if they still have the desire to avoid being the Europa League next season.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Openly Questions His Players’ Desire, Apologizes for Blowout Loss

Share

Today was probably a new low for post Sir Alex Ferguson Manchester United. Yes, this has been said before, many times, but getting drubbed 4-0 at Everton, in a match that was an absolute must-win, a new nadir was ushered in.

After Easter Sunday’s shambolic embarrassment, an effort even worse than the 4-0 scoreline would indicate, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer 1.) profusely apologized to everyone involved with the football club and 2.) openly questioned the basic desire of his own players.

Tottenham Hotspur Starting XI Prediction vs Brighton & Hove Albion

Share

alderweireld

When Tottenham Hotspur hosts Brighton & Hove Albion on Tuesday night, it will be a match where both sides have a lot on the line. Spurs are fighting on for a top four finish, and with that, UCL qualification. The Seagulls are trying to stave off Cardiff City, and keep that last safety position in the table.

That all said, Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino could do a fair amount of squad rotation here. Given the lesser quality of this opponent, and the fact that the UEFA Champions League semifinals against Ajax are rapidly approaching, don’t expect Poch to risk any of his hobbled a-team players here. The north London side has a few injury doubts, and there really isn’t ant point in risking them for the midweek clash.

Tottenham Hotspur hosts Brighton & Hove Albion on Tuesday night, in a match-up that has substantial significance at both ends of table. Spurs are holding on to third place in the standings, but they have two teams nipping right at their heels (they did have three, but it looks like Manchester United have apparently shut down operations for the rest of the season).

For Brighton, they currently sit in the final safety position, but with Cardiff City just two points behind, it appears the battle to avoid the final relegation slot could go down to the final day.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Says Manchester United Overhaul will be Gradual

Share

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has disputed reports that Old Trafford is headed for a major overhaul this summer transfer window. According to numerous stories in multiple outlets, United will be looking to bring in as many as six new players, with of course several potential players headed out the exit door as well.

Solskjaer says the turnover won’t be that dramatic, and that roster change will be come much slowly, over time. Perhaps he is straight shooting on this one, or maybe he is saying what he needs to say publicly in order to help his cause in the transfer market. Either way, the Red Devils headed to the locker room down 2-0 this Easter Sunday at Goodison Park, in a game they really have to have.
