    The biggest winner on deadline day has to be River Plate. The club will get about €25 million thanks to a sell on fee for Enzo Fernandez.

Not to mention the feel-good story about famous American owners coming to a town (now officially a city - King Charles himself came to Wrexham to bestow the honor) in Wales and taking one of the oldest football teams in the world up the British pyramid. It could easily be a Hollywood movie starring Ryan Reynolds, but instead it's happening in real life - and starring Ryan Reynolds.
    That was another argument I saw - about how it’s they’re only popular because the Deadpool guy owns the team, and that MLS has plenty of celebrity owners to tell stories. Well, I don’t think Will Ferrell owning a percent of a percent of expansion LAFC is quite the same as outright buying the third oldest club in the world.

    Happy Deadline Day to those who celebrate.

    Chelsea is on the verge of a ?120 million deal for Enzo Fernandez. That would bring Chelsea's spending spree to ?2/3 billion since the ownership change.

    Chelsea are also selling. Jorginho might be going to Arsenal and Gallagher to Everton or Newcastle. Jonjo Shelvey has gone from Newcastle to Nottingham Forest.

    Cancelo has gone to Bayern on loan with an option to buy.

    Would it be unreasonable to call the 5th round the Round of 16? I get lost in the rounds.

    I ask this of the great British public.
    They refer to it by round number until the quarterfinals. Which they used to refer to as the sixth round but saner parties stepped in to call it the quarters.

    I’ve found the last couple days that there is a contingent of fans who hate Wrexham because it’s taking attention away from American soccer.

    There was an article talking about how ESPN was “pulling out all the stops”, and posted by someone saying they wished ESPN had given MLS this much attention. I thought meant they were elevating it to the main channel. Nope. Reading the article it was still only streamed on Plus, just getting a top commentating team.

    Another was saying how Wrexham wouldn’t even make the USL playoffs. Which, even if that’s true, just makes it a better story that they’re a 5th level team in the Round of 32.

    Looks like half the match-ups are going to a replay from this round.

    This is dumb for 100 reasons. 1st of which, MLS hasn't started its season yet.

    The FA Cup draw for the fifth round.


    Southampton v Luton or Grimsby

    Leicester City v Blackburn or Birmingham

    Stoke City v Brighton

    Wrexham or Sheffield United v Tottenham

    Fulham or Sunderland v Leeds United

    Bristol City v Manchester City

    Manchester United v Derby or West Ham

    Ipswich or Burnley v Sheffield Wednesday or Fleetwood Town


    Tottenham at the Racecourse vs Wrexham would be amazing. Manchester City going to Bristol will be fun as well.
