The champions league qualifiers start tonight. I usually hate the summers without football but this one has flown.

Vikingur Reykjavik have already won two qualifiers last month against the champions of Estonia and Andorra to get this far.

Considered going to see TNS vs. Linfield but the locals are probably full of COVID

Let me guess, someone stuck a fiver on 91-1 with Paddy Power

Everton trying to organise a preseason game against the losing team to try and beat their historic 23-0 game a few years back.

First sacking of the new thread. 

I wonder where he will end up? If Arsenal had any sense they'd sack lego head and go for him.

That's actually a good shout. He might get the players to put in a shift. Could potentially be their Houllier. I still think the jury's out on him as a top level coach, though he finally won a few things with PSG.

That club had won the French quadruple or treble most every season before he arrived. He really didn't do well at all.

When Ten Bag fails to get man United to first place by mid August the natives will be out with their pitchforks and Norwich scarves.

PSG could be about to become a real force in European football instead of a sideshow if they're serious about starting a proper footballing project Campos and Galtier leading it seems like a hell of a start.

 

Will be interesting to see how they manage to move on the likes of Neymar and Messi and how long that takes.

Why? He's what Arteta's career will look like, almost exactly. Except lego head has actually won some silverware.

All well and good with these words but not much of a vote of confidence only handing out a two year deal to a new manager is it.

I think it's the appointment of Campos rather than Galtier that is the important one in all this.

I think that is just their MO - Blanc got a year extension. Emery and then Tuchel both two year deals - Pochettino was then 18 months.

Nasser talks absolute shite. That quote is just demagoguery. What they wanted to do was get Zidane, which would have bothered Campos because he would have had more power, but he rejected them, so they got Galtier, who will be the good French soldier who will be liked by the media. If Galtier is any good there, they'll have fallen ass backwards into it.

It certainly looks that way. Bit different to what we tend to do in the Premier league. As TD said, looks like Campos could be the key man here. But they'll certainly be a force to be reckoned with.
