  1. Hazard has received quite a few individual awards already in 2018 (will probably win best Belgian abroad too during the Gouden Schoen). He also was the only Belgian in this TOTY: https://toty.uefa.com/
  2. POTY 2018 prediction: Vanaken *sounds like he's the favourite to win the "Gouden Schoen" but my prediction in here is about your TOTY (not the Gouden Schoen) ... IDK if you're picking a POTY though.

    I have a question of my own about the addition of different areas of concern. E.g. imagine a player with both a level 4 concern (about being loaned out) and a level 1 concern (about his lack of games). Will your Chairman automatically place this player on the Transfer List (adding up both areas of concern)? Or will he only be transfer-listed when he develops a level 5 concern in one particular area of concern? For example, is it possible for a player to simultaneously have a level 4 concern (about being loaned out) and a level 4 concern (about his lack of games)? I.e. two level 4 concerns (= two "major concerns") but neither are level 5 ones (= "Transfer request"). Regarding the value of a player I've seen that the different areas of concern are added up. IDK if this applies to being transfer-listed as well.

    @thorgan lesar a while ago you asked about a concern that I hadn't encountered myself, i.e. "lack of opportunity at the club". Now I've found a manager with a few players that have such a concern. Seems it isn't a synonym for lack of games, as someone claimed it was, but a different area of concern: He has a few 22-23yo's with this particular concern but these players are so far down the pecking order that they have zero opportunity to play in the future. I doubt this concern goes away by putting those players on the bench, as was suggested, and actually playing them might not even help (a couple of them have more games under their belt than needed seeing they "only expect to play a few (if any) of the number of turns"). Loaning out a player with such a concern probably will prevent it getting worse. To get rid of it completely: sell the player, buy him back and then loan him out (so he doesn't develop any concerns to begin with). If you can sell to an external club the transfer ban expires after 1 week. That's a relatively easy/quick fix.
  5. Dortmund wouldn't have to demand that Chelsea waive this right if they weren't trying to land Thorgan. Thorgan already said he wouldn't move before the end of the season and until then Dortmund have Pulisic on loan (loan-back agreed with Chelsea). If the reports are true Dortmund will come for him.
  6. @thorgan lesar not at all, they're making enough waves to get noticed, good to see Trossard in the XI though. Not completely unrelated, here's a bit about the 2014 Golden Boot, Thorgan Hazard. It sounds like he was used as a bargaining chip. He deserves so much better. In Germany it's being reported that Dortmund didn't only get €64m for Pulisic (+ loaning him back for free), i.e. well above the value of a player with only half a year left on his contract, that last scored a goal 4 months ago, that according to Watzke/Zorc was failing to make the grade and that has been warming the bench. Dortmund also demanded that Chelsea dropped the right of first offer for T.Hazard as part of the Pulisic deal ... and Marina caved in again, SMH. T.Hazard was sold to BMG for about €8m, he was rumoured to cost €30m last season and seeing he is one of the BuLi's top-rated players this season he'd be a steal for a fee like the one in this tweet.

Considering how much money was thrown at Pulisic it would have been much cheaper to exercise the right of first offer to get a better player, one that provides goals/assists. Eden loves playing with his brothers and all four could have been on Chelsea's books (Ethan, who turns 16yo this summer, has been linked to Chelsea as well). PS I very much doubt Eden expected the squad to be "strengthened" with the likes of Zappacosta, Emerson, Drinkwater, Bakayoko, Giroud, Morata, and so on. Pulisic isn't what he was hoping for either. Icardi would be a lot more like it, especially as Eden hates playing there, but it's not exactly a surprise if Marina pays over the odds for Wilson or fatty Higuain instead.

    Were any PL teams overlooked? Liverpool are the last one to be reviewed, right?

    Never had this concern myself. Probably should have loaned him out to avoid that kind of concern creeping up in the first place. I can't say if it will go away if you loan him out now but I'm guessing it will at least not worsen. I take it he won't develop concerns for being loaned out (not much help if that's the case). Too many players (with the same position) are ahead of the one that is "worried about the lack of opportunities to play in the first team". In case he doesn't want to sell a few that are higher up the pecking order it might be possible to loan a few of those players out (if it can be done without them developing concerns for being loaned out themselves). TBH I can't tell. Maybe not a fix he wants but you could also consider selling the player and buying him back once the transfer ban expires. Then loan him out so he doesn't develop concerns.

    TBH it was sort of sad, it's good to see Pogba dabbing again.
