For those tempted to write off Erling Haaland’s historically hot start to life as a Premier League striker, we get it.

There is something somewhat dull about knowing the identity of the 2022 Golden Boot winner, the only curiosity is the final number of his final tally.

Haaland leads the Premier League with 21 goals in 15 games, eight more than the next closest challenger: Tottenham’s Harry Kane.

Haaland scored two more goals on Wednesday in a Leeds win at Elland Road as Manchester City pulled out of the World Cup break with the big Norwegian still on the way to a Premier League record. Such a pace? 53.2 goals (a real miracle would be to score the fifth goal, wouldn’t it?). He scored 20 goals in a single Premier League season faster than any other player in history… by seven games (Sunderland’s Kevin Phillips did it in 21).

And the later this season goes with his projected current record so far, the fewer shots come with pace markings (especially given that Haaland won’t be beaten in the World Cup, although he would certainly trade a chance for Norway to enter the tournament).

And while Haaland is currently outperforming expected goal tally, it’s already becoming clear that projecting him onto a Premier League record isn’t far-fetched at all.

Look at these numbers (on the right).

Haaland doesn’t just score goals; He almost seamlessly transitioned to the Pep Guardiola system, creating chances for others in addition to his powerful self-position.

Haaland may not be able to score 50 goals given Manchester City’s busy schedule, but the Premier League record is in jeopardy and the figure isn’t entirely absurd.

Mohamed Salah holds the season’s record 38 games with 32 goals for Liverpool in 2017/18, while Newcastle’s Andy Cole and Blackburn’s Alan Shearer scored 34 goals in a 42-game season in the last decade 20th century.

Haaland can also break the single-season goalscoring (goals plus assists) record, including breaking the record with 42 games. Alan Shearer scored 47 of 42 and Thierry Henry set a record in 38 games with 44.

Other records that Haaland could legitimately have broken or broken:

  • 30 Premier League goals in first season (Kevin Phillips, Sunderland, 1999-2000)
  • Goals in 24 different Premier League matches (Salah, Liverpool 2017-18)
  • Most goals scored in a Premier League match (five out of five)
  • 11 Premier League goals in a row (Jamie Vardy, Leicester, 2014-15)

Read on to see the latest Premier League goal totals for the 2022-23 season as Haaland look to earn the Golden Boot in his first season in the Premier League.

Zinedine Zidane was recently offered before turning down an offer to replace Gregg Berhalter as USMNT head coach. report from a French newspaper Command.

What a strange week of USMNT news has been, huh?

It wasn’t just the US that called Zidane lately, as offers from Brazil and Portugal were also turned down. Reportedly, the only international job Zidane would take is in France, but Didier Deschamps has just extended his contract until the 2026 World Cup.

Zidane has been out of a job since leaving Real Madrid at the end of the 2020/21 season. 50-year-old famously gives White up to three victories in the UEFA Champions League (2016, 2017, 2018), and also twice won La Liga and the Spanish Cup.

If the offer to Zidane really existed, we now know that Berhalter is not US Soccer’s number. 1 USMNT job candidate. Officially, there is a search for coaches, and they were not shy about their ambitions.

Berhalter’s contract with US Soccer officially expired on December 31, following the conclusion of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, where USMNT reached the round of 16 for the third time in a row (2010, 2014). Shortly after the USMNT was eliminated, the ongoing Berhalter-Reina saga began when the then head coach revealed that an unnamed player – later revealed to be Gio Reina – had almost been sent home from the World Cup.

This week, nearly three weeks after Berhalter’s comments, the spat has taken a very nasty, very sad turn as two families who were once very close friends feud through public statements and teleconferences.

This week, US Soccer announced that Anthony Hudson will be watching the friendly matches against Serbia and Colombia later this month as the search for a permanent contract continues.
