Christian Pulisic Open to a Position Switch Says Thomas Tuchel

Share

Chelsea and United States Men’s National Team star Christian Pulisic is an attacking midfielder by definition. His best and most natural position is on the left wing, but football/soccer is a team sport, so the 22-year-old must do what is necessary to help out the side.

Blues boss Thomas Tuchel is a defense-first kind of manager, and that’s reflected in just how stellar Chelsea were last season in that department. The German took a side that was middling in mid-table last year, and guided them to a Champions League title and a top four finish via their ability to hardly ever concede goals.

Backlash Against Ricketts Stronger Than Ever as Cubs Totally Gut Team

Share

It was Cubs Convention 2020, about a couple months before the world shut down due to the covid-19 pandemic. Cubs Chairman Tom Ricketts took to the stage, where he was cascaded by a chorus of boos.

The MLB Trade Deadline is like the market for a sports guest post, there is a ton of wheeling and dealing going on. And the Cubs were the biggest sellers of all.

Share

If you want success, you have to dress for it, and the Manchester United 2021-22 away kit, which pays homage to the Class of ’92, reflect the ambitions and expectations of the club for this season. Given how they signed Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane this summer, while also not losing any players of note (at least not yet), they have overtly stated their intent this upcoming season.

Meanwhile a couple of United’s chief big six rivals have been largely inactive thus far in the transfer market. Of course we still have another month left in the window, so anything can happen.
