Dustin said what needs to be said about the Rose interview, so we’ll keep the discussion of that there. Here’s what I’m curious about: We’re three days out from Newcastle. How are you feeling? What’s your first XI? I’m sticking with the first lineup I listed a few days ago—4-2-3-1, Dier at right back, Winks-Dembele midfield, Sissoko in the attacking band, and the rest of the squad as you would expect. How about you? And another follow-up question: What kind of result are you expecting? Poche teams always seem to start slow and given our fitness issues, I can see that coming again. That said, an opening win and maybe an August goal for Harry Kane would be a nice start, huh? So... how are y’all doing? Calmed down from yesterday, I hope. Let’s talk.

Let’s have a quiet day, maybe?
