2023.06.03 21:05 Time_Pool_9643 My brother brother is getting married to my ex and invited me to the wedding.
Trigger warning: Suicide.
I (39M) have been a caretaker for my brother, Justin (33M) since he was 10. I was only 16 when our parents died. I had to take care of the household because my brother was still very little. I did everything for him. He was the apple of my eye. I guess I spoiled him a lot. I never dated that much because I was the breadwinner for my brother. That is until I met Melissa (35F), it was almost 10 years ago. We dated for 2 years. It was great, my brother loved her. One day, I eavesdropping a conversation she was having with her friend. The gist of that conversation was something like her friend was asking about me. Melissa said that she loves me a lot, she loves that I take care of her in every way. But I am pretty average when it comes to having sex. Her friend asked her if she is going to talk to me about it or how is she happy. She told her that her fixture is my brother. She went on to explain how she and Justin have been having an affair for 8 months. She thinks it is justified because she thinks Justin is better in bed than I am. You can imagine how painful it was for me. I went inside the house pretending I didn't hear a thing.
I confronted Justin about it. I know how get him to talk. I pressed this matter after he was denying it. He eventually broke down and said it was the truth. He didn't say anything because he didn't want to hurt me. He and Melissa are in love and wanted to get married but Melissa won't leave me. I was furious. I wanted to beat the shit out of him but I just told him he is dead to me and left. I also kicked out Melissa and she stayed with my brother and his roommates. My brother was banging on my door non-stop. I had to move in with a friend and told everyone to not disclose my location to my brothers. His calls and emails were all the same that he was sorry and he never wanted to hurt me and he will break up. I stopped the bank account (something like a trust fund) that I mad made for him that he can access when he is 25. He was not my brother anymore.
I went into deep depression. I didn't eat or sleep properly. I would have nightmares of my brother and ex laughing at me that I suck in bed. That if I was good enough she would have never left me. It got so bad that once I stood in front of a train track because it was too unbearable for me. Luckily, my friends saved me. I do not have much friends but they were my rock. I stayed with them for a year. I went to therapy, I did group sessions. I had a lot of anxiety regarding intimacy so I didn't date for a long time. My friend encouraged me to try. I did try once with a one night stand but it was bad for both of us. I still go to therapy to this day. But other aspects of my life has improved. I focused more on building new relationships with new people. I went to travel and explore more hobbies. I was living for myself.
I am in a relationship with someone for 3 years now. We are engaged and we are having a kid together. Lisa (32F) is a really nice person. She knows all about my insecurities and problems that I faced because of my brother. She was mature and patient with me. I was able to trust someone enough to be in a relationship. 2 days ago, I got an invitation in my mail about a wedding. And as the title says it was from my brother. He has kept tabs on me from afar and invited me to his wedding with none other than Melissa. Looking at their names doesn't hurt that much now. I feel numb. If it was 8 years ago, I would have a meltdown. I still feel this pain that I cannot be happy for my brother's big day. My fiancé suggests that we shouldn't go and delete the invite.

2023.06.03 21:02 Independent-Box5637 Any different careers that are similar to speech language pathology or psychology?
I'm a senior in undergrad right now and I'm super stressed out. I originally majored in psychology but was scared out of it. I went to a required meeting for students majoring in psych and the lady running the meeting basically said we weren't gonna make any money in the field unless we went for BCBA. And then I had a friend who constantly told me that I wasn't gonna make any money as a therapist. So, I went on the search for something else that interested me and I landed on speech language pathology. I chose it because the average salary is good, I don't mind getting a master's, and I naively viewed it as an easy job. And it's not, obviously. And i'm not passionate about it and all of my classmates are so into it. I'm not good at retaining knowledge if something doesn't really interest me, and I feel like all the information from every class i've taken related to speech has flew out of my brain. I'm in my capstone course for the major right now and I feel like I don't belong in the class because I barely know anything.
So, I've been looking into BCBA and I thought it was a great alternative until I realized it's a controversial field. I asked my brother who is autistic about it and he said that he doesn't believe it's ethical. I know it's a complicated topic (and no hate to anyone who is a BCBA!!!) but I would feel like i'm doing a disservice to my brother.
So, this was all compiled very poorly but I guess I'm just posting this to see if anyone has suggestions on what I should look into. I'm very interested in helping people with issues whether it be mental health or disability related. I don't want to work in the medical field. I wouldn't mind working with children, adults, or both. I'd prefer to have a job that's more independent but I don't mind working with others. I want an above average salary (like everybody else...). I don't know I'm just really lost. Any advice would be appreciated.

2023.06.03 21:01 theliljwcptdeux How much to study for OIT exam in Ontario?
I’m looking to switch careers and I’ve had my eyes on water treatment for awhile for various reasons. I grew up right beside my towns treatment plant and was always fascinated by it. During university I worked for my cities parks department but always that the guys and girls in water had a more interesting job. I’m currently 25, have my business degree which got me a decent public sector job, however I’m going nuts sitting in an office all day. I’m also limited to my 36.25 hours a week and would really prefer some overtime at this stage of my life to get those student debts paid off. I’ve looked into it and know I need my OIT license minimum. I’m ordering the study package soon and just curious as to how long on average people study for this exam? I also don’t come from an environmental/science background so this is going to be new to me. Is there any other certs/college programs you guys might recommend me doing as well on top of my OIT to better my odds/set me up for success? Any advice is appreciated.

2023.06.03 21:01 TheRealJim57 The "secret" to success in personal financial management
What's the secret to success in personal financial management? It's both very simple and very complex, although it has just two basic parts:
- Pay yourself first.
- Live within your means.
Doing those two things consistently is how anyone acquires, builds, and maintains wealth. If you don't do both of those things, then you're going to struggle financially and/or be unable to afford to retire comfortably.
Everything else that is written on the topic of personal finance ultimately is related to how to best do those two things given your individual circumstances.
Now, what exactly do I mean by each part?
"Pay yourself first."
- From the time you start working, budget at least 15% of your gross income to go to investing for your future. Preferably 20% or more, if you can, but at least 15% should be the initial goal. If you never see that money in your take-home check, then you won't miss it as much.
- Time invested matters, so the sooner you start investing, the better. Compounding returns are how your wealth will grow by leaps and bounds as you get closer to retirement--it takes many years for compounding to really work its magic.
- If your employer offers a 401k plan and matching contributions, then you absolutely need to take full advantage of that matching--that's free money on top of your salary, and your contributions are pre-tax (for traditional, not Roth 401k) which means your taxable income is reduced and lowers the hit to your net pay.
- Example: federal employees have the TSP for their 401k. The govt automatically contributes 1% of salary to it (this is in addition to your base pay, not deducted from it), and matches up to 4% more if the employee contributes at least 5% (matches 100% of the first 3% and 50% of the next 2% employee contributes). If an employee contributes just 5% of their pay to their 401k, they're actually putting 10% of their gross income away due to the employer contribution and matching. So for an employee to put 15% away requires just a 10% contribution from their pay--and that's pre-tax, if using traditional.
- If you find yourself in the fortunate circumstance where the % of your gross income you're budgeting to saving/investing is more than the IRS $ limit for what you can put into a tax-advantaged retirement account, then you'll need to open a regular brokerage account to put the additional funds into.
- If you need advice on investing, there are many resources available to you for that. Generally speaking, history shows investing in a market index fund would provide adequate returns of 7-10% on average. I'm not advocating anyone specifically do that, just providing it as an example.
"Live within your means."
- This is also sometimes expressed as "don't spend more than what you take home every month."
- Basically, your take-home (net) pay that you receive after all of the deductions for retirement, taxes, insurance, SS, etc., is what you have available to budget for your living expenses: home, food, utilities, transportation, fun, etc. Budget accordingly, and stick to your budget.
- If you find your means are insufficient for your desired lifestyle, then you have three options:
- Expand your means. Whether by working a second part-time job, developing a side hustle, etc., to increase your income.
- Reduce your expenses. Find ways to cut your costs, like extreme couponing, bagging lunch, take on roommates, etc., to get your expenses within your budget.
- A combination of the above two to make it work.
- For those who need help with this one, there is no shortage of free advice from people like Dave Ramsey and others.
I see far too many people complain "I (or some people) can't do that, because of [insert excuse(s)]"...but it almost always boils down to the individual being stuck in a financial hole due to poor choices that they've made up to that point in life. Yes, there are some people who experience a calamity truly beyond their control, but that's hardly the norm. It also doesn't change the secret to success--it just makes it harder for that individual to achieve.
This post is aimed more at providing "the secret" to those who are young and starting out. If you're farther along the path and find this helpful, that's great. If you're farther along the path and find yourself challenged at doing these two things, then just know that starting late is better than never starting at all. If you simply can't find a way to put away enough of a % when you start, you can still start putting away a lower % and increase the % whenever you get a pay increase until you do reach your target %.
Best wishes to all in your future financial success.

Can I put a camera in the fridge? It seems odd. Is there a product I can but to keep cameras in to help with heat?

2023.06.03 21:00 Koga92 Why TOBIRAMA's Water style was impressive.
| || | submitted by Koga92 to Naruto [link] [comments]
The real reason why Tobirama's water style impressed the Anbu guys who stand on the roof top, is that a shinobi able to extinguish Hiruzen's powerful Dragon flame bomb
was uncommon. Even Hiruzen looked suprised, it is not often someone is able to display a such feat.
First of all, Hiruzen's Dragon Flame Bomb
isn't a common fire style technique, in fact it is the hottest classic fire style technique ever shown in Naruto, because of its white flames.
The colder part of a diffusion (incomplete combustion) flame will be red, transitioning to orange, yellow, and white as the temperature increases as evidenced by changes in the black-body radiation spectrum. For a given flame's region, the closer to white on this scale, the hotter that section of the flame is. The transitions are often apparent in fires, in which the color emitted closest to the fuel is white, with an orange section above it, and reddish flames the highest of all.
The Dragon Flame Bomb can also produce blue flames as Konohamaru showed in Boruto :
And Hiruzen's Dragon Flame Bomb
is also called Fire Dragon Napalm
because it is litterally a napalm explosion Hiruzen is throwing from his lungs. So it is a very powerful and intense fire blast.
A normal shinobi trying to stop it with a Water wall wouldn't succeed, because the fire blast would be so powerful in energy compared to the Water wall, that the Dragon flame bomb would consume the Water wall.
Tobirama's Water wall is special, it's an highly pressurized Water Wall infused with raw chakra power.
Tobirama's water style is impressive because it is infused with his elite Senju raw chakra power that inherited from his ancestor Ashura. Which boost the power of his techniques, it is likely why the Senju outclassed the other ninja aside the Uchiha in Ninjutsu and Taijutsu mastery given their raw chakra power that increase the power of their attack like the Senjutsu do at a greater extent.
This is why Tobirama was the only one shown in the manga, being able to slice solid things with water style, Fukasaku was an animal naturally amped with Senjutsu and Sasori used tools, Tobirama did it because he is Tobirama.
This is also why Tobirama can launch hypersonic water needles that target vital point, something even Alive Rinne Sage Mode Madara had to be careful about.
2023.06.03 21:00 MysteriousLecture960 How can I raise the temperature in my enclosure
So the ambient temp usually hangs around 80 at my geckos normal spot, I was reading 90 is much more optimal, my bud has a uvb light & a heat mat under the tank which is at 30c so I don’t want to raise that anymore. He’s in a 50 gallon tank. What can I do?

2023.06.03 20:59 stoicforreal Not impressed 😕
| || |
I got this as a blind buy from a fragrance auction. I must say I was clearly brainwashed by online reviews. Not to say it’s bad, it’s great but I had really high expectations. It opens up as sharp minty, towards the dry down I get creamy sandalwood. submitted by stoicforreal to DesiFragranceAddicts [link] [comments]
Unfortunately I don’t get any grapefruit note.
Longevity: Average on my skin😕(max 3 hours sadly). I don’t think it’s because of olfactory fatigue, but i need to confirm.
Sillage: good but not huge, does not fill up the room for me.
This made me think I got a fake one. I bought a decant separately to confirm the authenticity.
Whats good: 1. It’s a Chanel, fabulous presentation! Magnetic cap, the look and feel, just amazing. 2. Smells rich, unique and sophisticated. The smooth sandalwood dry down is intoxicating to me 4. My mom likes the fragrance!!
What’s bad: 1. Had very high expectations with projection and longevity, does not meet my expectations. My Ajmal evoke gold (a clone of prada l’homme) performs better 😕 2. No grapefruit for me😕 (folks say edt has more of it but I fear it’s worse in terms of performance) 3. I don’t see it as a daily driver. Suitable for dressed up scenarios. Could be good for Dates/weddings/other occasions(but does not perform). I feel it would be an overkill for the office, although you would get good compliments.
Regardless, it’s still a masterpiece.
Lesson learnt: stop impulsive buys, even if the deal is great. Buy a decant first.
Would I pass it on or sale? No, it’s a unique experience. No that I’ve invested, I’ll keep it.
How much did pay? I bought a partial of around 80+mls around 7.1k. I got a quote for new around 9.2k for 100ml. So this action seemed like a fair deal.
More recommendations with grapefruit notes are appreciated.

2023.06.03 20:52 BiscuitLogistics Sole F80 intermittent speed surge
Hi Friends. Looking for some advice from anyone with experience. My F80 is about 2 years old. I mainly walk around 3.5mph at 15 incline for 90 minutes at a time.
After months of this most days I’ve started getting short speed surges. They last a few seconds, with the speed going from maybe 3.5 to 4 mph. Catches me out as you’d imagine. Probably happens 2-3 times per 90m session.
Wondered if anyone has overcome this issue. For context the F80 has been in one place, with the only variable being time of year. The issue crept in as winter came to an end and the treadmill is in the garage so ambient temperature going from around 8 Celsius to 18-20 Celsius. Some things I’ve already tried without much luck;
1). Speed sensor adjustment 2). Calibration (passes happily) 3). Lube and clean 4). Belt tightness adjustments.

2023.06.03 20:52 StukaKen Basics of flying wings!
Im going to kick this off and share some of the basics for making a self stable flying wing!
1: A Leading edge sweep of at 20° or more is critical for yaw and role stability. You can go down to around 15° of sweep but stability will reduce and the wing can become tricky to fly.
2: You need Reflex in the wing! Reflex can be done on the airfoil level or with up deflection of the Elavons the amount of reflex required depends on weight, CG location, airfoil, and airspeed. Generally the amount required can be determined with trim well flying
3: The CG needs to be farther forward than on a conventional wing. Generally from 15%-25- the Mean Arodynamic Cord.
4: you dont need a gyro or vertical stabilizers for a wing to be stable. If you have a leading edge sweep less than 20° vertical fins can be very helpful.
5: If you want to fly fpv you will want vertical stabilizers to dampen the natural wing waggle present in flying wings. This will greatly improve the camra view. And help making flying easier and less nauseating.
General terms: Relfex: is when the trailing edge of the airfoil flexes back up to generate a down force. This down force is the equivalent force the horizontal stabilizer makes on a conventional plane. Leading edge sweep angle: is the angle between the leading edge and a horizontal line parallel to the pitch axis MAC (Mean Arodynamic Cord): is generally the average cord length of the wing. Or in other words the average length of the airfoil along the wing. This can get more complicated with wing that change their leading edge sweep angle as you go down the wing.
Feel free to add more in the comments! As flying wings can be a huge rabit hole to go down to understand how they work!

2023.06.03 20:51 General_Gengar I want to stop thinking about relationships. I am too much of a disaster to date
I am the kind of person who would seriously damage anyone who dates me. I face an insurmountable road to improve myself to a point where I wouldn't just traumatize some random woman.
- I am 26 years old and male
- I am fat (at least 210 pounds)
- I am not tall enough (5'9", maybe on a good day)
- I am ugly (I will upload a picture if you need proof, but I have posted to various rating subreddits and have been rated below average every time. Most people didn't even bother to call me ugly, they just called me fat. My celebrity lookalike is probably Macaulay Culkin as a child, and I am a 26-year-old man)
- My eyes are a horrible, lifeless grey. For the longest time, I thought they were blue, but my vision is also bad and I couldn't tell
- My lips are huge. My mom would occasionally call me n-word lips when I was a child
- I cannot grow decent-looking facial hair. It is too light and patchy to groom into anything that would look good on me
- I look significantly younger than I am. No, this is not a good thing. I look like an ugly teenager
- Every woman I have ever asked out has told me no
- No one has ever been attracted to me
- I live with my parents and brother
- I have very little money, and I couldn't afford to move out if I wanted to
- I work at home caring for my brother, because he has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, and it seems like I will be doing it for the rest of my life, even if it isn't my job
- I told my old therapist that my mom was being verbally abusive and short-tempered towards my brother. They called Adult Protective Services on me, which started an argument with my parents when I told them. My dad told me I needed to clean more, and I shouldn't have told the therapist anything before telling my mom, and my mom told me I was there to talk about myself, not them. I was also kicked out of therapy after the interview in which I said it. I am never going back, straight up
- I haven't made any new friends in years, and all of my old friends have moved on with their lives
- Everyone my age has a career, and I haven't even gotten a Bachelor's degree yet
- My parents argue every week, and I have to deal with it because my brother needs me. There were times when arguments between my parents were about me and my behavior
- I get stressed out around my mother and her demands, even though she is my mother
- I am absolutely worthless at cooking
- I am a lazy piece of garbage who can't get off the couch to clean enough to keep the house not dusty
- I am constantly freaked out and on edge, thinking about whether or not my parents are arguing and if my brother needs anything from me
- I can't stop thinking about opportunities that I screwed up to at least have friends. I know that no woman has ever felt attracted to me in that way, but if I hadn't been so boring and actually had something to talk about, I could've been friendly with them
- I am at least partially responsible for many of the rules on this subreddit, including rule nine, due to my past behavior here
- I am not ready to be a functional, decent person
If you read this list of faults and you decide that I should keep inserting myself into other people's lives, then I don't know what to tell you. I have failed myself and my family my entire life. I have never been good enough to succeed at anything. I'm not even a good caretaker for my brother.
I just want the thoughts to stop. I tried to run away from any space that talked about loneliness, but I just got lonelier. If I could get better at suffering in silence, the lives of those around me would improve dramatically.

2023.06.03 20:50 Maruschetta My ex friend I was living with owes me money, refuse to pay it back but she has gone to Marbella.
Back story: we were served a section 21 notice in November, due to the fact that she kept delaying rent payment when we lived together. At first I used to pay her half too, but that would mess with my direct debits. When the time to leave the flat approached, she refused saying she has no other place to go. I left, and the agency refused to collect my set of keys as they said we are both equally liable until she also leaves. I have not received my deposit up till now, and I have asked her at least to pay my side of the deposit, as the whole situation is just unfair. She keep saying she doesn’t have money, but she is now celebrating her birthday weekend in Spain, villa and personal drivers included. How do I go about the whole situation ?

2023.06.03 20:49 scarsellaj The Hater’s Guide to the 2022-23 Premier League Season: Final Matchday Edition
It’s over…it’s finally over…now where am I gonna get my footy fix? “Watch the MLS?” I’d rather take up heavy drinking again. The World Cup, the Champions League, and the EPL did a number on my sanity this season. Anyone else feeling this way?
Manchester City: It looked like the monopoly was going to finally end again. City brought in a whole new squad with Haaland, Akanji, Alvarez, Sergio Gomez, and integrating academy players like Cole Palmer and Rico Lewis. The first half of the season you could see Pep’s children struggling to play with Haaland. But then…Kevin De Bruyne and Jack Grealish must’ve been juicing in the dressing room. The back half of the season saw Haaland explode with his 36 goals, the most of a single striker in a season. They not only victimized the leaders in Arsenal, they stormed the gates, ravaged the village and took the riches for themselves. AGAIN. Winning the FA Cup is routine by now. But the Champions League…That’s the main prize. Becoming the next English team to win a treble is a good add-on. Man United can punch air knowing they’re still miles behind the noisy neighbors who have now won six league titles under Pep. Better sort of these contracts for Gundogan, Laporte, and Mahrez though. Or don’t, because we know they can replace anyone with all that oil money.
Arsenal: You bottled the league title after over 264 days at the top do the league? What’re you, Tottenham??? This is shambolic squad management. Even with all those reinforcements in Trossard and Jorginho, they couldn’t keep up the pace. Not only do you lose out on the title, you went trophyless. The Cup showings were even worse than previous seasons. And you want to say it wasn’t a bottle job? My brother in Christ, you lost to Southampton. This was the best chance Arsenal has had at ending the league title drought but Arteta is still showing himself as diet Pep. Even if you do buy more exiled City players, more is still needed. Welcome back to the Champions League, I guess. It’s good having a young team like this. Do not fuck it up. Do not waste the young years of Odegaard and Saka.
Newcastle: That Saudi investment is working. The Magpies used their newfound riches to attract the likes of Isak and Botman knowing they were only a few steps away from Champions League nights. Then came the addition of Anthony Gordon because squad depth is paramount in a game like this. And they got it. For the first time since 2004, Newcastle is in Europe. Eddie Howe deserves a lot of praise for the work he has done. He’s unlocked Callum Wilson, Joelinton, Miguel Almiron and Allan Saint-Maximin. Kieran Trippier’s career has been revived. Even players like Big Bird Dan Burn have flourished. We all knew this was going to happen. Just not this soon. We now have to deal with TWO oil money clubs jockeying for the title. I can understand why haters think they’re screwed. Get your money up or get your funny up.
Manchester United: I’m going to give Erik Ten Hag a 7/10 for his first season in Manchester. He got Marcus Rashford scoring again. That was an achievement in itself. Casemiro turned out to be the best thing for United since Fergie. When he’s not getting red cards. Luke Shaw took big strides even at center back. A commendable top 4 finish and a League Cup plus the FA Cup final to round it out. They still lost some really foolish games and they had the Cristiano situation. David De Gea doesn’t look like his old self anymore either. The Glazers-to nobody’s surprise-have still not sold the club. The lack of depth signings continue. But they’re in good position for a nice run next season. Who knows, maybe the Qataris will buy the club. That’ll change things. You’ll just be like Manchester City, I’m just saying…
Liverpool: Well, well, well…Liverpool missed out on Champions League football. It was a trying season, I get it. Not having any reliable midfielders will do that. You brought in Arthur Melo because reasons. Henderson and Fabinho looked like shells of themselves. The departure of Sadio Mane rocked the team, and Darwin Nunez or Diogo Jota couldn’t fill the role. Injuries piled up and the trauma continued. Luis Diaz barely played this season because of them. Trent was cooked on defense all season long. Yet Liverpool still ground out a 5th place finish. Klopp’s not done in England yet. The future remains unclear as FSG continue pondering selling the team or giving Klopp more signings. Knowing how injured Van Djik and Konate have been, they might need it. Especially in midfield. They’re hurting bad in the middle of the park. At least you’re not Everton. Take solace in knowing Alexis Mac Allister is likely on his way to Anfield.
Brighton: Graham Potter leaving Brighton was the greatest thing to ever happen to this club. That and having the best scouting network in the whole league. Finding ballers in the South American youth ranks, the J-League and other random places formed a pesky unit of warriors. Karou Mitoma, Alexis Mac Allister, Facundo Enciso, Moises Caicedo, Pervis Estupinian, Evan Ferguson, Lewis Dunk, Jason Steele. These are the core of Roberto De Zerbi’s army of seagulls. Welcome to European football, boys. Just know you will have to start the next campaign without Mac Allister and likely Caicedo. They’ve attracted too much attention from bigger teams. Even City is sniffing around at Mitoma. I’m honestly impressed, Brighton. I’m also insanely jealous of your scouting network.
Aston Villa: Who knew Steven Gerrard was a fraudulent manager living off the success of a single Scottish title win? LITERALLY EVERYONE. Thus, Villa canned him for Unai Emery, and for the best. They went from relegation fodder to a berth in the Conference League. Ollie Watkins found his scoring touch again. Emi Buendia is now living up to the expectations (somewhat). Lucas Digne is back to Champions League-caliber. Philippe Coutinho is not even a core player anymore, just a good impact sub at this point. Villa might be punching a little above their weight but they’ve been defying expectations for a while now. With the godfather of European football at the helm, the sky is the limit. Welcome back to Europe, boys.
Tottenham: LOL Spurs always reigns supreme. I swear, it’s like rooting for the New York Mets: champagne expectations, perpetual disappointment. This season went from promising to utter dumpster fire in a matter of weeks. Antonio Conte got fed up with the players being shit again and got himself sacked promptly after that fiery press conference. Daniel Levy has never been under more pressure from fans and Harry Kane before. Spurs went from maybe squeaking out Europa League to missing out on Europe entirely. They wasted a 30-goal season from Harry Kane. Son was out of form all season. Richarlison scored 1 league goal all season. They had no defense and Lloris looks like Father Time got the best of him. Games were bottled, and through it all, they are now manager-less AGAIN. Is is time for Levy to step down? I don’t know, but he needs to do something about this team. It’s not even fun to complain about Spurs anymore. Now it’s just pure, unadulterated apathy.
Brentford: This is a fun team to watch. Thomas Frank is a magician with these players. Even with Ivan Toney going full Calvin Ridley mode, Brentford managed to win big matches when it mattered. Bryan Mbuemo played understudy to Toney most of the season but stepped up when they needed him. Rico Henry flourished at the back. Ben Mee transformed into a better player than he was at Burnley. David Raya is making a name for himself as clubs like Spurs eye him. Even Thomas Frank is getting considered for new roles. The Bees are buzzing. The West London newbies not only had a solid summer transfer window, they have finished top 10 in the second season of the big show. Now comes the hard part: next year. What do you do without Toney? Will you buy a new striker like Jonathan David? It remains to be seen, but in Frank’s Nordic vision we trust. He’s definitely got some crafty Danes or Norwegians waiting for a call.
Fulham: Speaking of West London clubs, I’m gonna buy these guys a round next time I see them. Congratulations, Fulham! You didn’t get relegated! Marco Silva didn’t even have to work miracles to do it. They played well at times, and obviously shit the bed in others. But you can’t say they didn’t fight every minute of every game. Aleksander Mitrovic finally learned how to score in the Prem. Willian returned to West London in full cry. Tim Ream made us Yanks proud as he held it down at the back. The X Factor: Joao Palhinha. You didn’t bend the knee willingly, boys. That shows character. Gotta say I’m proud. Now keep going, Tony Khan. You know they can aim just a tad higher.
Crystal Palace: Palace didn’t really do anything different this season. I say that because they pretty much finished where they always do. Comfortably mid-table again. I really thought Patrick Vieria was doing something at Selhurst Park, but then he was relived off his duties after a bad patch of form. So they decided to recycle the nostalgia and bring back Roy Hodgson…uh huh. Nothing really changes does it? Eberechi Eze turned into a special player. Zaha was Zaha, nothing new there. Jordan Ayew played solidly too. Michael Olise might be the standout player. He was really getting linked with a move to PSG to replace Messi?? I prefer not to speak.
Chelsea: Lol Spurs? No, LOL CHELSEA! We all knew the Todd Boehly takeover was gonna change things. We didn't expect a dip into total mediocrity. All while spending over 600 million quid on player signings. Thomas Tuchel was sacked....then Graham Potter got 8 months to make things worse...then they brought back Frank Lampard to see out the season because that's American forward thinking. Yea the viibes are horrendous at Stamford Bridge. Bringing in Enzo Fernandez, Chernobyl Traore in Mudryk, David Fofana, Wesley Fofana, Raheem Sterling, Kalidou Koulibaly and everyone else killed any team chemistry. Joao Felix was exiled from Atletico by Diego Simeone to basically do nothing in England for 6 months. Kai Havertz is STILL not a real striker. Auba brought back the No. 9 shirt curse. Christian Pulisic was fed up with it all and tried to force himself out to no avail. Mason Mount dropped off hard, but still has enough Englishness to warrant a move to United. The Blue Lions are dying in front of us. After years of poshness and self-absorption, they will not be playing European football next season. Thus, they brought in Mauricio Pochettino to fix things. Spurs fans everywhere are dying on the inside at their old gaffer taking the job...but it's the perfect fit for this Chelsea team. They'll be back, just wait.
Wolves: Wolves…wake up. What the hell are you doing? Why are muddling through these seasons lately? The vibes of the Nuno era are gone. New culture had to be created. Except it wasn’t. Bruno Lage was hired and did whatever it was he did. Which basically flirted with relegation. Julen Lupotegui came in after he was sacked by Sevilla and changed everything. It still wasn’t enough. The team was Ruben Neves saving their asses while Raul Jiminez continues to find himself after his head injury. Take solace in knowing Max Kilman is becoming a fantastic defender. Hwang Hee Chan looks more comfortable in England. But Wolves could be doing so much more. It’s a shame they’re gonna sell Neves. They were so close to shattering the glass season a few seasons ago. Oh how times change.
West Ham: This is the dark side of two consecutive seasons of deep European tournament runs. Your league form suffers. In West Ham’s case, it was injuries and inconsistent football. David Moyes is a decent manager but he can only take you so far. Just ask Everton fans about that. Sure you made the Conference League final but was it worth losing guys like Paqueta, Scamacca, and Antonio to the injury gods while selling Craig Dawson and sacrificing your league form? Declan Rice carried the Hammers at times. Only adding to his value as his big boy move is finally coming together. A bottom half finish is a few steps back but it’s not unexpected. It will be a big summer for the Hammers. It’s time to start planning for life after Rice. You can recover from it, but will Moyes be the guy to take you back to the top 10? You tell me.
Bournemouth: Scott Parker getting sacked in the fall saved the Cherries. Gary O’Neil had a vision for this team. They executed it well. Without his guidance, Bournemouth would surely be in the drop zone. In the first year back in the Prem, Bournemouth produced respectable results. Philipp Billing, Jefferson Lerma, and Dominic Solanke are some talented players but they have their limits. You'll be without Lerma next season since he's moving to Crystal Palace in the summer. Buying up all that European talent helped in the battle to stave off relegation, but where do you go from here? European places will be way too difficult reach with the level of parity we have now. Staying up next season will likely be the goal.
Nottingham Forest: 30 signings later, Forest avoided the drop. What else is there to say? The football was strictly average. Some players like Taiwo Ayonini lived to the hype, as did Morgan Gibbs-White. Keylor Navas was a great addition to keep the ball out of the net. Others like Jesse Lingard did not. The standout? Danilo from Palmerias, a strapping addition. Players like Ryan Yates, Brennan Johnson, and Joe Worrall proved they can hang in the big leagues. Steve Cooper is not getting sacked. But knowing how crazy the Greek overlords are, that could change on a dime. Whether you can take that next step to the top 10 I’m not sure of. Steve Cooper is strictly an average manager. A squad this big with this much high-end talent could use with a better voice. Your move, Forest.
Everton: Conglaturations, boys! You did the great escape…AGAIN. Remember last season how you said “never again?” What a load of horseshit. Everyone knew Everton would be lucky to survive given the state of the squad. When you rely on Abdoulaye Doucoure and Dwight McNeill as your main scoring threats, you know it was not going to be a good season. Try the board running fake stories about getting death threats from fans. Try fans confronting Yerry Mina in the parking lot after a tough loss to Southampton. Try sacking Frank Lampard and replacing him with Sean Dyche…actually that was a good decision. Farhad Moshiri is under serious pressure to turn things around. It doesn’t help Everton are about to get hit with FFP regulations even worse than City or Chelsea…is it worth building that new stadium if you’re playing in 2nd division? It’s not a matter of if Everton go down, it’s a matter of when Everton go down.
Leicester: Dude, what the fuck??? You’re supposed to breaking the Big 6 ceiling, not shattering your own reputation. We lauded Leicester for their recruitment and performances. But this is the fate of bundling all your eggs in the Champions League basket. Missing out on those revenues crippled the finances. Buying all those players came back to haunt them. Without Jamie Vardy leading the line, the team looked lost. Brendan Rodgers knew his time was up but was sacked unceremoniously. Dean Smith could not right the ship. After 7 seasons and three trophies later, the Foxes are back in the Championship. Such a shame. Open the flea market though. Maddison, Tielemans, Ndidi, and Barnes will all be lined up for moves to bigger clubs. Thanks for the memories, Leicester.
Leeds: Leeds are paying for the sins of Radriazzani. The guy he fumbled the bag in the worst possible ways. Forget about his off-pitch antics. This team was trying too hard to remake the Bielsa years. Fans never got behind Jesse Marsch’s American Revolution and he was kicked to curb after a shit run despite beating Liverpool. Javi Gracia took over and changed nothing. So to salvage the season, welcome back Big Sam!! loses 4-1 to Spurs on the final day oh dear lord. Even the relegation dodger himself could not fix a team that can’t connect. Jack Harrison took massive steps forward and is probably the first to go to replenish the coffers. Robin Koch will likely follow suit. Adams, McKennie, and Aaronson are definitely going to other clubs. They never got utilized correctly anyway. The vibes of the Bielsa era are gone. Every attempt to replace them didn’t work, especially if the fans weren’t willing to move on. Don’t make the same mistakes of 2004.
Southampton: The Saints go marching into the Championship. After 8 years of playing big club killer, Southampton is gone. I’m not sad about it. I hated playing against them because they’d always step up against London clubs. For a less bias take, it’s not something they could avoid. They didn’t have the talent or leadership to fix things. Ralph Hassenhuttl was largely uninspiring so it made sense when he got the boot. But Nathan Jones from Lutron Town?? That’s your solution?? That didn’t even last two full months. Ruben Selles as temp gaffer solved nothing. So now you go down without much of a fight. Thanks for giving up JWP, Armel Bella-Kotchap, and Romeo Lavia to bigger teams. You will not be missed by any teams from London.
