Will a World Cup hangover spark an unpredictable Premier League season?

Fatigue from Russia could be a factor in the title race as Manchester City bid to retain the title for the first time

So, we go again – and perhaps this season with an even greater sense of disbelief than usual that it’s back already. It won’t be long before we’ve returned to the familiar routine – just who is in crisis this week? – but for now it feels as though the Premier League will be swimming through the wash of the World Cup. The transfer window seems barely to have opened and yet is already in its last week, players have been still drifting back from holiday over the past few days, nothing seems to have had time to settle.

That should, in theory, mean this title race is less predictable than usual, at least at its outset – and, while it would be misleading to suggest that the season after a World Cup has a habit of throwing up surprise winners, it is true that the Premier League in a season after a World Cup tends to be won with fewer points than usual. Not since Manchester United in 1998-99 has a post-World Cup league champion attained more points than the average of the champion over the previous three seasons – and that was in a pre-globalised world before every team had half a dozen players who had been at the tournament.

Transfer roundup: Tottenham ‘nowhere near’ Villa’s valuation of Grealish

Guardian - fre, 03/08/2018 - 15:00
• Steve Bruce says Spurs yet to lodge formal bid
• Burnley make new bid for Middlesbrough’s Ben Gibson

Tottenham Hotspur have yet to make a formal bid for the Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish and are some way off in their valuation of the player, according to the Championship club’s manager, Steve Bruce.

Grealish has been linked with a £20m switch to Tottenham, who have yet to make a signing in the close season. “At the moment, Spurs haven’t got anywhere near what the owners want to even consider, so there’s not a discussion to be had,” Bruce said. “I don’t think we’ve had a formal bid. The one thing that the owners have made pretty clear is no one is for sale. We don’t want to lose our best players.”

Football transfer rumours: Jérôme Boateng to Manchester United?

Guardian - fre, 03/08/2018 - 10:26

Today’s fluff came here to slay

With a week to go before the end of the summer transfer window, Daniel Levy has a decision to make: Incredibles 2 or Ant-Man and the Wasp? Friends have recommended the former but Levy is leaning towards the latter because the first Ant-Man caper was a real hoot – he still gets a chuckle from that fight scene involving Thomas the Tank Engine! Mind you, the first Incredibles was also a blast, and director Brad Bird was responsible for Ratatouille, too. So that’s it settled – Levy will go see both films. Friday at the flicks: sorted!

Meanwhile, 19 Premier League clubs are milling around as if the transfer deadline was today instead of a whole week away, the fools. Manchester United, fearful that José Mourinho may turn up at his next press conference and just keen like a dog for 45 minutes, are particularly eager to get another deal done. They are being linked with Robert Lewandowski, for whom they do not have an urgent need, but Bayern Munich might take Anthony Martial off their hands as part of the deal, or as part-exchange for Jérôme Boateng. That is unless United complete a deal for Yerry Mina, the Colombia centre-back who looks set to leave Barcelona.

A transfer target for each Premier League club before the window closes

Guardian - ons, 01/08/2018 - 14:01

With one week to go before the transfer window closes on 9 August, who should the 20 Premier League clubs sign?

Unai Emery has already made five signings – Lucas Torreira, Bernd Leno, Sokratis, Mattéo Guendouzi and Stephan Lichtsteiner – so may settle for what he has. However, another centre-back would be very useful given Laurent Koscielny’s long-standing injury problems. Newcastle captain Jamaal Lascelles would cost up to £30m but the 24-year-old has the mentality and leadership skills Arsenal are crying out for at the back.
