    Who Should Host the 2030 World Cup?

    Why are we talking about the 2030 World Cup now?
    We just had the Euros, we’re in the middle of the Olympics and a few weeks ago Matt Slater of The Athletic reported that Saudi Arabia were exploring a bid with Italy to host the World Cup in 2030. Today we ask, who should host the 2030 World Cup?

    How Will Nuno Espirito Santo and Bruno Lage do at Tottenham and Wolves?

    How Will Nuno Espirito Santo and Bruno Lage do at Tottenham and Wolves?

    On May 21st, after 4 largely successful years Nuno Espirito Santo and Wolves decided to part ways. But Wolves' loss is Tottenham's gain. However, it took Tottenham 72 days to hire Espirito Santo and he wasn't their first choice after deals with Antonio Conte, Paulo Fonseca and Gennaro Gattuso fell through.
    Wolves' search was far less dramatic, hiring ex-Benfica manager Bruno Lage. Today we ask: how will both managers do at their new jobs and are they good fits?

    Today we analyse Everton's decision to hire Rafa Benitez and Crystal Palace's decision to hire Patrick Vieira.
