  1. Oh thanks a lot ! It's just to know if it's a ban or if I can come back to the club I was managing (Brentford)
  2. Euuuuh, no, I don't use facebook, though I do have an account (somewhere) XD
  3. Hello, I got kicked of the TFSL for 12 days of inactivity, how can I contact James Murray ? Sorry to bother you with this !
  4. I think you've probably got it spot on. He'll struggle to get past 94 at PSG. If they win CL and he gets Ballon d'or then maybe 95. I can see him moving before too long though. I do agree on this. At the moment (the whole first half of the season) Mbappe is not playing well (not well by his standard I mean). He is still in the process to recover from the World Cup efforts and his new status of World Cup Champion is not easy to wear : he wants to do too much, and if he has the energy, the technique and choices do not allways follow. So, to get a rise he needs to improve a lot in the second part of the season. If he does well he might get a +1 at the end of this season, and a +1 during next season. As you said, PSG needs to get to the final stage of the CL at least, and play very well. Ligue 1 is a handicap.
  5. Strakosha. It's weird that SM missed him in winter review. Also Alban Lafont, the new keeper of Fiorentina, would be a good choice. Areola will rise next season I think, if he becomes number one
  6. Now we will wait to see if he can get through to the first squad... that may be a bit long...
  7. 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
  8. 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.

  9. 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...
  10. Happy new year to all ! (and Mkhitaryan drop to 91 I'm inconsolable) *sob*
  11. 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.
  12. Ok thanks for this tip, maybe Azpilicueta is better in 3 men-at-the-back formation then.
  13. 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
  14. 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 ?
  15. Son. Lacazette is at his peak and may go down in the future, it's the opposite for Son
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. 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
  19. Defenders: * Kurt Zouma : long term injurie, keep him ! * Timo Baumgartl : keep him * Jesus Vallejo : keep him * Jaïro Riedewald : no idea, don't know this one * Emanuel Mammana : keep him, very talented center back, needs to toughen up and get experience
  20. Nobody knows if he is bad or good, he did not played... Since his injury, back in 2014 I think, he never came back to be the same player
  21. Yes you are right ! Thomas Meunier is indubitably the only convincing signing from this summer (so far) ! He played only 16 matches (sharing the right back place with Aurier), but played them well, with energy. And, cherry on the cake, he scored two fantastic and important goals, the last one yesterday. He opened the score with superb move (Grand pont, chest control and lobed volley in the opposing side netting... ouch). A screamer, and this made the fans crazy, as you can understand. The other screamer was in Champion's League, but it is said he intended it more as a pass than as a strike Anyway, when he scores, he means it ! On Jesé, I heard today on radio Marca he may leave in January, and a transfer is prepared toward Las Palmas... Though Las Palmas has not enough money to afford him Of course Julian Draxler is due to come from Wolfsburg, official today : http://www.lequipe.fr/Football/Actualites/Accord-psg-wolfsburg-pour-julian-draxler-a-36-millions-d-euros/762829 An other player lost by Arsenal (oups)
  22. Can the problem comes from the board, high up ? Experience has proved (edit : proven !) that with a falty head, all the pyramidal construction of these big clubs have a way of melting down, slowly but surely (like chocolate, now is the time)
  23. I understand, I play in a game world where you can't buy a player over 84. But I've never played a GW with 116/116, that must be amazing !
  24. I don't know if he is the worst, but I agree he is not a great player. He comes from this famous french mould : Strong and big you will be Fast and furious you will run As a big brute the ball you will strike, Green Monster Style ! Fire and forget all the rest Thanks to the football gods, we came out of this politic a few years ago !
