    Same as usual: attractive opponents from the top two pots. The opponent from the other pot is more important as you'd like to avoid coming bottom/a fair chance at dropping down to the EL (in case you don't advance from the CL groups).

    The idea of this thread is to pick fifty players aged twenty-one and below to follow throughout the season. The ratings of the players will all be rated eighty-three and below. Some will no doubt be better known than others. Hopefully this thread will be able to track the players as they rise through the rankings. I will try to update the thread with snippets of information as the season progresses. 
    THIS IS A WORK IN PROGRESS!

    Was a bit surprised when I saw it. There were rumours of a transfer to Brugge or Anderlecht earlier, besides the ones linking him to clubs abroad, but didn't think anything would come of it. I read Brugge paid 7M and even with Migs taking a big wage cut he'll weigh on Brugge's wage bill. OTOH Migs is dying to get out there and prove himself again.
    Sounds like he was indeed a good servant to the club and a model pro. Klopp: "If you were to ask me to write a list of the most standout pros I’ve worked with in the game - in a career of well over 30 years - Mignolet would be competing for the number 1 spot. The first in, the last out every day at Melwood."

    Granted it's China, still Carrasco looks very motivated to return to Europe.
    Reportedly Dalian reneged on their promise to let him return to Europe. Seeing the window in China has closed when August began, there's not much left of the PL window, ... a move will only be harder to come by. Shame.

    Vukovic - Coucke - Jackers - Vandevoordt
    KRC Genk is fine with the keepers. Vukovic can certainly last another year before the young Vandevoordt will take his place. The Belgian goalkeeper will be brought quietly. Gaëtan Coucke and Nordin Jackers are both talented keepers, but cannot play at this KRC Genk. Coucke can become 2nd goalie this season, while Jackers leaves the team (temporarily).

    Mæhle - De Norre - Cuesta - Screciu - Adewoye - Dewaest - Lucumi - Uronen - Neto Borges
    The defense has a lot of quality, but ultimately young with great potential. Sébastien Dewaest is the experienced player in the defense. Lucumi and Cuesta have more qualities than the Belgian. The 2 Colombians will most likely become the central axis of the Limburg club. Screciu and Adewoye are 2 more talents. Adewoye - from the KRC Genk academy - is the 3rd choice anyway. The wingdefenders are also fine. Mæhle is highly sought after, but seems to stay. De Norre must take further steps. Uronen is a solid left back and Neto Borges has been adjusted for half a year (the adjustment period for Brazilians in Belgium always takes longer).

    Berge - Wouters - Hrošovský - Heynen - Piotrowski - Hagi - Fiolic
    Midfield is also almost ready. Heynen, Hrošovský, Piotrowski and Hagi are all 4 axis of midfield. Fiolic seems to be leaving (temporarily?) and Sander Berge might also be leaving. A possible replacement is also possible. It will be a difficult task to replace Berge. It is a little awaiting how this trio will be filled up.

    Ndongola - Ito - Benson - Nygren - Bongonda - Paintsil
    We have to wait and see how Bongonda can integrate into the team. He played well and stood out at Zulte Waregem, but now he plays with a top team that can play for the title and play in the Champions League. The other newcomer Benjamin Nygren is only 18 years old, but is one of the greatest Swedish talents. This move from the Swedish to the Belgian is not wrong for such a young player. Can Ito reach his level again? Manuel Benson - who returns from Excel Mouscron - underwent a metamorphosis, but is that enough? Paintsil, which has now been adjusted for an entire season and has been able to work on his lesser points. There is a lot of potential, but there are also many questions. Ndongola still seems to be leaving.

    Samatta - Odey - Gano
    The position of the central peak is not yet completely finished. The Nigerian Stephen Odey is new, but seems too early to take the position as a striker. Gano is not enough. Samatta will also leave KRC Genk. So someone will definitely have to be recruited here.

    Conclusion
    KRC Genk has another core with a lot of potential, but the question is how it will be without the players leaving KRC Genk and when the newcomers are ready to replace them properly. With new coach Felice Mazzu they are doing well with an even better defensive organization. A team to look forward too for sure.

    Players to look out for ....
    Carlos Cuesta, Benjamin Nygren, Patrik Hrošovský, Manuel Benson, Ianis Hagi, Stephen Odey

    Kaminski, Coosemans, De Busser
    Not so many to say about it. This is good enough.

    Souquet, Castro-Montes, Yem, Derijck, Lustig, Bronn, Plastun, Rosted, Van Den Bergh, Asare, Mohammadi
    The right back is full of potential, but both are not yet fully ready (Castro-Montes and Yem), which means that Lustig will probably start on the right. In the short term, 1 of the 2 mentioned will be able to take that place. Arnaud Souquet can leave. With Michael Ngadue and Lustig, experience and quality have been added to the defense. Derijck, Plastun and Van Den Bergh are nice back-ups. Derijck and Plastun must also be able to add experience. On the left, Asare is slowly on his way back, KAA Ghent found a fast back of Iran Mohammadi.

    Esiti, Owusu, Smith, Odjidja, Louis Verstraete, Dejaegere, Bezus, Chakvetadze
    Esiti is a player with duel power, Owusu with footballing ability. Vadis is the ideal player with experience, quality and box-to-box. Smith still has to adjust a lot and I would personally lend him out. A player who can also play between 6 and 8 is still needed in width to fill in the 4-4-2 (diamond). It may be a little too much for Vadis, which means that a physical player is needed. For the rest, the midfield is fine.

    Dompé, Beridze, Limbombe, Azango, Kubo
    On the wing-position it is still not as it should be. Kubo can play there and Dompé is a good but not a constant player. Beridze shows himself in the preparation and gets his chance. But it is not convincing enough. Azango and Limbombe can leave. KAA Gent plays without real wingers, but 1 right winger would be useful in an emergency.

    Yaremchuk, David, Depoitre, Kvilitaia, Jalloh, Sylla
    The young Canadian (Jonathan David) plays in the system of Jesse Thorup as a 10. Where he also fully fills. Although he might well play back as a central attacker. Yaremchuk is a good striker, but misses many easy chances. Kvilitaia is not considered enough and may be removed. Sylla can also leave. The youngster Amadu Jalloh - transferred from the -21 to A-team - becomes 3rd choice. KAA Ghent lacks a real finish. Komlichenko is linked to KAA Ghent, but is not yet concrete.

    Conclusion
    KAA Ghent is at the end of his homework in terms of incoming transfers. A winger and a solid midfielder is also missed. Quite a bit of work still needs to be done to let some players go, but KAA Ghent has time to do so until 31 August.

    Players to look out for...
    Elisha Owusu, Alessio Castro-Montes, Giorgi Chakvetadze, Jonathan David

    Didillon, Roef, Boeckx
    Didillon could leave, but he shouldn't. Davy Roef would be no more than 2nd keeper and he doesn't want that. He may still be leaving. Boeckx would become the 2nd keeper, but is not good enough for this. So there are question marks here.

    Saelemaekers, Najàr, Chipciu, Sowah, Sanneh, Kompany, Sandler, Danté, Bornauw, Sardella, Milic, Zola, Lawrence, Cobbaut, Lutonda
    You notice that there are enough players in the width. Although there are some who are allowed to leave. Sowah (temporary), Milic (final), Lawrence (final), Danté (temporary) and Milic (final) all have to find a team. Saelemaekers, Najàr and Chipciu become each other's competitors. The Honduran Najàr has been out for months. The plan is to have Chipciu Najàr replaced. Central there is Kompany, Sandler, Sanneh and Bornauw. Zola is still on trial, but should be the left-footed central defender. Cobbaut and Lutonda (18 years old) are each other's competitors.

    Makarenko, Kayémbe, Dewaele, Sambi Lokonga, Kums, Trébel, Gerkens, Vlap, Léoni, Žulj, Verschaeren, El Hadji
    Makarenko, Trébel and Kums could leave. Kums would not fit in the team that Kompany has in mind and Trébel weighs too much on the wage. Possibly a defensive midfielder will be attracted, because Kayémbe is not ready for the first spot. A man with a lot of duel power is not really there and is all technically engineered. A big question mark. If Kums and Trébel leave effectively, they must look for a replacement. Although RSCA does not seem to intend that.

    Elia, Bakkali, Adzic, Colassin, Nasri, Amuzu, Doku, Saïef
    Meschack Elia is on trial, but is seen as talented. Adzic (temporary), Saïef (final) and perhaps Amuzu (due to difficulties with contract extension) are allowed to leave in this row. Bakkali is then out with a long injury. Colassin, Nasri and Doku are the only ones who can fight for places as wingers. Colassin is not even ready yet. They can also make changes on the wing-position. Nasri, Doku and Verschaeren .... That is not enough. The wingers were once different. I fear this is not enough to compete with the top.

    Santini, Kiesse Thelin, Dimata, Dhauholou, Dauda
    Santini, Thelin and Dauda can all leave. Dhauholou has many problems with injuries and Dimata has also been injured for a while There must be a striker. Even 2, but that doesn't seem to happen either.

    Conclusion
    Despite the arrival of Vincent Kompany, it will again be a very difficult season. It will be a long-term project for him. There is still a lot to go and at least 3 more incoming transfers have to be made. The first team is nice, but the selection as a whole still needs to be improved considerably.

    It is looking forward to some youngsters. Anouar Ait El Hadji (17), Jérémy Doku (17) and Thierry Lutonda (18) especially will be allowed to play quite a bit. They will not be the only ones, but something is expected from them next season.

    Players to look out for...
    Jérémy Doku, Yari Verschaeren, Michel Vlap, Thierry Lutonda, Philippe Sandler, Albert Sambi Lokonga

    Bolat, Teunckens, De Winter, Lathouwers
    1st keeper Sinan Bolat can still leave, but is not 100% sure if he stays. It will then have to get a replacement, but for now it is all right.

    Buta, Opare, De Laet, Kakudji, Arslanagić, Muanza, Seck, Diaby, Batubinsika, Borges, Píus, Juklerød
    Van Damme's loss is big. He was the leader with enough qualities for a team that have the ambitions to play Play-Off 1. The youngsters Kakudji, Muanza and Diaby will mainly train with them. Píus is seen as the replacement for Jelle Van Damme. All in all, the defense is still nice in terms of Antwerp his level. A backup of Juklerød is still needed. Juklerød played almost everything last season that did not benefit his qualities at the end of the season.

    Haroun, Hongla, Yatabaré, De Sart, Nazaryna, Quirynen, Refaelov, Coopman, Hairemans, Niangadou
    Yatabaré and Hairemans are allowed to leave the team, while Niangadou goes back to the -21. Quirynen is another young person who is added to the A-team. Haroun, Hongla and De Sart as the ashes of midfield seems to me not enough. A player with physical qualities out on the '8' is certainly still welcome. Refaelov and Coopman have to take on the role of attacking midfielder.

    Baby, Ivo Rodrigues, Lamkel Zé
    3 wingers. You read that right. That is indeed not enough. In addition, Lamkel Zé is arguing with the team. Plus again that Amara Baby and Ivo Rodrigues don't actually show what is expected of them. There must absolutely be 2 technically skilled wingers signed. Offensive, Royal Antwerp has to hit a level higher or it becomes difficult to reach the Europa League first and secondly the Belgian top teams to make it difficult in the attacking field.

    Mbokani, Bolingi, Mendy
    Mbokani extended his contract with Royal Antwerp. It let Van Damme go, but keeping Mbokani is quite a prestation. Bolingi is not really a goal scorer, but he can try to make a defense tired. Mendy is not enough. Also as a central attacker there is still something to be added as a backup for Mbokani.

    Conclusion
    The midfield is not yet strong enough to play football and offense is simply not enough. Royal Antwerp is a difficult team to beat, but now they have to make the move to be able to beat any team. With today's team, it will fight for PO1 again, but it will be a bit harder. Offensive reinforcement and it can play Play-Off 1 again.

    Origi likes to stay and Klopp seems to believe he can improve him. Let's see first if he can get more minutes. Apropos, reportedly Bayern are also interested in Carrasco.
     
    - Interested in seeing what Lampard has in mind for Batshuayi.
    - Benteke entered the final year of his contract and is intent on running it down. Lots to prove this season if he wants a last big payday (maybe off to China next summer).
    - R.Lukaku situation would be resolved this week (if reports are correct).
    - Saw plenty of rumours about castagne but they have somewhat died down (don't know if he has extended his contract, looked like he prefers to stay).
    - Casteels was being linked to Barca (as Cilessen replacement). Casteels is ready to make a step up. I just hope he doesn't move to club where he'll rot on the bench.
