I believe so.

There are some Carabao Cup games today and tomorrow involving those teams.  I believe that used to be the FA Cup?  In any event it’s soccer. Or is it futbol?
Here’s some info. It’s the EFL Cup.

With Mbappe, Neymar and Messi up front wondered how they ever lose. Looked at their record and they have not lost in league this year. Two draws.

Donnarumma is like the only PSG player who wasn't in the WC.  I can't recall who said it (Pirlo?), but someone remarked that "the World Cup without Italy is like a pizza without cheese"  :lol:  Obviously he had not been to New Haven.

I think it's the old League Cup, the third-in-prestige competition after the FA Cup and the regular season.

Spurs still in 4th, even with the injuries.

I think I saw he's getting $75  million as a salary. To me, that's a better situation.

I’m assuming all of his sponsorships are over

He can play at 50 percent effort and produce more.  And won’t have to worry about getting benched. For more money. His endorsements won’t end. He will still be adored by many.

Been a complete pod today watching man u man city, everton Southampton, now Brentford Bournemouth.

If Everton were relegated, would they have to (practically) sell Pickford?

Then there's the matter of being relegated with a boatload of new debt for the unopened stadium.  Yikes

I would think Pickford is one of their most valuable assets if they are relegated. Don't teams tend to dump players after relegation to pay bills and reallocate assets?
