Hello Guest. We are upgrading the server's XenForo versions. This has to be done in stages.
1.5.18 ---> 1.5.23 ---> 2.0.0 ---> 2.0.12 ---> 2.1.0.
I will likely upgrade each one and leave it for a day or so to see if there's any kinks. When moving from 1.x to 2.x, our add-ons will cease to work. Much of the functionality of said add-ons is now native within XenForo 2.x, so I don't think we'll miss much if anything. IF we are, we can try out new 2.x XF add-ons.
3 of those without Alli as well. Obviously, Spurs won't win the title, but they've exceeded my wildest expectations for this season.
I don't know whether to root for Kane to come back ASAP, or for him to actually get some rest. He came back from his knock early last year, and he was ass for a good month after that. Then the other side of me sees a 3 match stretch of @Chelsea, vs Arsenal and @ Dortmund and thinks Spurs have no shot in those matches without him.
It's crazy to think that we could have a 3rd place team potentially finish with 90 points (or thereabouts). Has that ever happened before?
I'm sort of dreading Pulisic's move to Chelsea at this point. Theoretically, this should open the door to more playing time for him. However, there's a good chance Sarri isn't the coach when he arrives. Roman is pulling back from the club a bit. He might be the player tasked with being a direct replacement for Hazard, and he'll probably be blocking Hudson-Odoi from playing, too. There's going to be a ton of pressure on him, and Chelsea is a bit of a mess. Really hoping I'm wrong, but the move doesn't look great even 2 months on from when it was announced.
It really depends on the coach. If it’s Sarri, great, it’s an ideal system for him. If not... we’ll see
In terms of moving to a top English club like he wanted, he’s in the best spot possible. Assuming Hazard moves on, they just don’t have a ton of wingers. Willian is still quality, but Pedro hasn’t been good and there’s nothing after that.
A lot can change in a window, which is why I don’t think “buy with loan back” moves make a ton of sense for players.
To play devils advocate. The ban will almost assuredly be delayed at least one window. Giving them the chance to make some moves. Best case they are able to re sign Hazard and Odoi. Giving them Hazrd-Odio-Pulisic for two spots. Worst case all of Odoi, Hazard, Pedro and Willian will be gone. Leaving Pulisic and whomever they can bring in. If they don't get the ban delayed a window it will be a disaster.
Who the hell knows what will happen with Sarri though.
