Still Work To Do For Wolves to Maintain Progress

A Portuguese Invasion really has taken hold in the Midlands. Wolverhampton Wanderers have ties to a Portuguese super agent, a Portuguese manager, and own no fewer than 12 Portuguese players. They also have a couple of Brazilians, who's native tongue is Portuguese, and a Mexican striker signed from Benfica of Portugal. When Fosun International bought the club, just four years ago, Wolves were coming off a season where they had finished 14th in the Championship. In the first season under …

With Others Splashing Cash, Burnley Must Build On Top Half Finish

Burnley finished the 2019/20 season in 10th place, a second top half finish for Sean Dyche's men in the past four seasons.

Ambitious Brighton Can Target a Top Half Finish With The Right Moves

The 2019/20 season has to go into the books as a success for Brighton, after Graham Potter led the Seagulls to a 15th place finish. It wasn't just that they'd finished 15th, something they'd also accomplished under Chris Hughton in 2017/18, it was how they did it. Potter replaced Hughton after a 17th place finish in 2018/19 and was tasked with bringing a more attractive brand of football to the Amex. Hughton had brought Brighton into the Premier League for …
