With these postponed matches, 2022 wil be tremendously busy for some PL players. As if the spring schedule isn't busy enough with European tournaments, domestic cup tournaments and international, the next season will start early due to the World Cup. Seems like 2023-24 will be the first normal season in European club football.
Agreed. Especially with your last sentence. We can only hope. Aww crap. Arsenal just went up 2-0. Turning TV off.

This has not changed for years, constantly bad Hajduk that is unable to even qualify for Europa League, the only club able to draw crowds not only home but away games. Hajduk's bunch of away fans constantly outnumbers the average home attendance of the place they're visiting. This correlation constitutes a phenomenon. This year Hajduk is good and is still in a fight for the championship, hence the even wider gap.

I hate all the big 3 teams he coached - Juve, Chelsea and Inter - but Conte is a miracle worker and if Spurs don't back him, they don't deserve to ever win anything again. This is probably their best chance in decades.

Man Utd are crazy for not sacking Ole fast enough to get Conte on board. He's 100x better than Poch who seems like the most likely candidate to take over Man Utd in the summer.

I agree with you. He's a winner wherever he goes. I love the guy's passion and it rubs off on me when watching a game. I've been a Spuds fan for just 8 years, but I have grown to see why fans of other clubs talk about the organization in a bad way. I know a lot of it is just trash talking, but there is some truth there. Certainly the "You'll never win anything at Spurs" comment which I see often.

Conte would've been a great fit at Man Utd. Surprised they didn't go after him.

Norwegian football coaching icon Nils Arne Eggen died this morning, 80 years old.
He is most well known for his time as coach for Rosenborg, which he led to 13 league titles and 8 seasons in the Champions League where their best achievement was a quarter final defeat against Juventus.

Eggen continued to make his voice heard in Norwegian football football until his last weeks. He was a quote machine and often showed his knowledge in other fields than football. He also was a teacher with Norwegian as his main field.

However, his grasp of foreign languages was not at the same level as witnessed by many CL press conferences.

A legend in Norwegian football. RIP.
