Hello Rank Squad!
We’re just over a month out from the return of the Premier League, and there’s a lot of questions still to answer for various clubs. The Head Coach, Harry Brooks, returns to walk us through a selection of things he’s got on his radar.
We start with Manchester United and how they might operate without a World Class Number 9, discuss Bournemouth’s new manager Andoni Iraola and how he adapts, dig into the plethora of problems haunting Pochettino’s Chelsea, take a look at how Brighton might need to adapt this season to thrive, and ruminate on how City continue to get the best out of Erling Haaland.
Things We Love contains a bit on the Harry Kane to Bayern Munich saga continuing to develop, and Carlo Ancelotti’s appointment as the new manager of Brazil from next summer onwards.
And this week’s Hot Takes includes thoughts on Ange Postecoglou and the pressure of the Premier League (straight from one of our Patreons, and you can try it for free!), N’golo Kante’s place in the Premier League Pantheon, and the handball rule needing to change.
