Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Responds to Jesse Lingard Transfer Rumors

Manchester United winger Jesse Lingard, 28, is a talented attacking player, in the prime of his career. However, he’s part of a very crowded attacking midfield/final third position group, where major minutes are very hard to come by.

He’s been linked with a move to FC Barcelona, among other clubs, after having had a dominant loan spell this past spring at West Ham United. It was thought he might move on from Old Trafford this summer, but instead he stayed put, and manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says the Englishman is part of the club’s future plans.

Raheem Sterling Openly Seeking a Move Away from Manchester City

During the early portions of Euro 2020, England winger Raheem Sterling absolutely carried his team. One of the best performers at the European championships this summer, one would naturally think that he would be impossible to drop at his club this season.

The opposite has been true, actually, as the 26-year-old has really struggled for playing time so far this season. A team overloaded with wingers, City went out and got Jack Grealish from Aston Villa this summer, making him the first 100 million GBP player.

Tuchel Provides Updates on Christian Pulisic, Thiago Silva and Hakim Ziyech

Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel, at his weekly news conference, provided updates on the status of wingers Christian Pulisic and Hakim Ziyech, as well as central defender Thiago Silva. It’s his comments about that last one, the Brazilian, which are making their rounds today.

Silva will miss out on the west London derby against Brentford because his country, Brazil, staged their World Cup qualifier on Thursday night, and that match comes way too close to kickoff, in terms of getting back on the other side of the world in time, and ready to play. Amazing that we even have to write sentences like this, but the Premier League just plain refuses to postpone the games, and give their South American players adequate time to return.

Chelsea FC Starting XI Prediction at Brentford

Germany became the very first nation to qualify for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, this past week, thanks in large part to a duo of Chelsea attackers. Timo Werner bagged a brace, and Kai Havertz also scored to lead Deutschland to a 4-0 win over Macedonia.

Whenever Werner scores, it’s a very big deal, and with first choice striker Romelu Lukaku potentially missing out on Saturday versus Brentford, one can expect the German to get his chance here.

Chelsea Team News at Brentford: Lukaku, Rudiger, Kante, James, Silva

According to Google Maps, you can drive from Chelsea’s Stamford Bridge to the Brentford Community Stadium in just under 15-20 minutes without traffic. You can walk it in about an hour, 45, as the two sites are just under six miles apart.

Yet, due to the tiers of English football in which they reside, meetings between these two west London clubs have been few and far between. Saturday will mark the first league meeting since 1947 and only the 17th ever all-time.

Flashing Back to Jon Gruden Washington Team Name Debate Take

jon gruden

In the wake of the news surrounding Jon Gruden this week, we felt it might be interesting to flashback to some of the rare past occurrences where he actually did give his take on social issues. It seems pretty crazy right now, doesn’t it- a man who seemed to love absolutely everyone and everything, was Mr. positivity as an announcer, is actually a deplorable person on the inside.

During an ESPN Monday Night Football media teleconference, several years ago, Gruden even said, with great self-awareness: “people think I’m too positive, I love everybody!” Turns out it was just a character he played on television.

Manchester United Starting XI Prediction at Leicester City

Manchester United return to action on Saturday, when they’ll visit Leicester City for a Premier League fixture, beginning a key stretch that will see the level of competition rise significantly. With a ton of much bigger fixtures, both domestically and in Europe, coming up fast and furious, we have to quote Atlanta hip-hop duo Outkast:

“from here on out, it only gets rougher.” Let’s see how manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, currently doing his job without the support and approval of many, if not most, of the fans, handles this all.

Marcus Rashford, Phil Jones in United Training, Harry Maguire Misses Out

Manchester United are back in first team training, and it won’t be long until another long, tedious international break is finally over. Central defender Phil Jones, who hasn’t featured in well over a year, is back training this week and he could be in line to play at Leicester City on Saturday.

Marcus Rashford, who has yet to feature this season, is also full go now, having completely recovered from his shoulder surgery. However, team captain Harry Maguire has still not returned to training.

Saturday sees Northwestern hosting Rutgers in a match-up that isn’t the most exciting possible on paper. However, it is one with a lot of historical connotation. These are the two Big Ten programs, ovet the course of history, which have provided us the worst squads of all time in 1981 northwestern and 2019 Rutgers.

This is a topic we’ve looked at before, and hey, why not doing it again here.

United Early Team News vs Leicester: Varane, Maguire, Fred Cavani

International breaks are always dull, but this one has been especially boring. Little of news value has happened the past couple weeks, but the injury to Manchester United central defender Raphael Varane is certainly one major headline.

The Frenchman will be sidelined for maybe 4-6 weeks, possibly more, due to the groin muscular injury he suffered in the UEFA Nations League Final against Spain. This was announced yesterday, so let’s take a look at the other fitness/injury/availability issues.
