    I'm not sure if "provoke" is the right term. I associate the word provoke with an act that is deliberately aimed to get a response. But that's a semantics game. I do think it is also somewhat of a moot point. We may think whatever we do is not a provocation, but the Russians perceive it...

    I think Ten Hag will get plenty of leeway in his first season.
