    Now we will wait to see if he can get through to the first squad... that may be a bit long...

    It's quite a fair bargain. Depends if you need a good player at once (Laporte) and still on the rise, and that can play left back, or if you have time to see DeLigt arise... For me Laporte

    About Kenny Tete at Lyon : He suffered a setback when Lyon signed Leo Dubois as Right Back this summer. Dubois immediately went first squad, with Rafael (who should have left during the market) on the bench as substitute. Being third man was tough for him as he explains in french interviews, but he stayed focus and worked even harder to gain back his place. Then after the international break in november (he played against France and against Germany) he was given a chance by Genesio and just played better, and better and better at each match. Yesterday in the Coupe de France he did not played, Dubois was on the pitch. I think now Tete has gained his place ahead of Dubois for Ligue1 and Champion's League, if he can maintain this level in january.

    Hi, keep thauvin at the moment. He has the 92 maybe 93 level in him, but needs an other club or an other manager than this buffoone. Unfortunately for you he won't rise this season...

    Happy new year to all ! (and Mkhitaryan drop to 91 I'm inconsolable) *sob*

    Keep him until he drops dramatically. I mean, you won't sell him for the money, so better keeping him, just like Pirlo or Xabi Alonso or Iñesta at the time.

    Ok thanks for this tip, maybe Azpilicueta is better in 3 men-at-the-back formation then.

    Maybe some people don't realize the amount of work it takes to rate thousands and thousands of football players around the world... The only solution would be to put an AI engine on this job, which would cost a lot of money. I'm sure someone will get to that in a few years

    Ricardo Pereira is a nice right flank player, I follow him since is great seasons at OGC Nice (15-16 and 16-17 I think) on loan from Porto. Then he played the last season with O Porto... He did great with a good Champion's league season. And then he rejoins Claude Puel this time at Leicester in the PL, and is immediatly good... but not yet great. In the meantime he was part of the Portugal squad for the WC where he was dropped (🚽) in favor of Cédric Soares. Unfortunately when he had the chance in the final 1/8, he failed against Uruguay, as an offensive RB he was destroyed by Suarez and the lot. After that failure, he did not came back in the national squad, as Joao Cancelo is on the rise. So for me, he won't get a 90 at Leicester this winter. Maybe he needs to join a top club as a first squad player, like Cancelo ? Or maybe he is just your reliable regular team player and don't have the mind of a top player ?

    Son. Lacazette is at his peak and may go down in the future, it's the opposite for Son

    Yes it will be, but it will be the worst moment to play them, with Mourinho it was an easy win for sure... Without it could be a fierce fight.

    Hi Mendy is in advance over Chilwell, as he is more mature and has (quite) more Champion's League experience. Even if Chilwell is getting better and better, I would take Ferland Mendy without a doubt. You need to keep Pepe and Under, and I would sell Bailey on current form.

    Rabiot and PSG have failed in the negociation for renewing the player's contract. For two years now Rabiot refuses to play as a 6, as he wants a more glamorous and offensive role. He is a bit stubborn and his mother and agent may ill-advises him. Now the club has decided enough is enough and they will keep him out of the first squad for the rest of the season. This means Rabiot will not play competitive football until he finds a new club in the summer, in short no football for him until august 2019. He won't be part of the french national team either, as he fell out with Didier Deschamps before the last world cup. But, he has the potential to be a 94/95 midfielder in one or two years if a big club finds a way to "tame the beast"... https://www.bbc.com/sport/football/46635372 My advice : keep him even if he stays at 91 for at least a whole year, or get rid of him and sign Frenkie DeJong

    Injury prone - Need help

    I would choose José Giménez over Laporte, I think. Better player, better defender, younger, more experience in CL and at international level... But Laporte, who is not doing his best season, plays more game, and it seems that Simeone prefers Savic over Gimenez... So it can be a choice, but still my guts tell me Gimenez is better
