  1. Hi Eneko: Issa Diop is young and has a bright future BUT he at the moment is playing at a club with a Cap of 90. Upamecano is also young but is a little prone to errors lately after a return to fitness. He will learn and progress also but Akanji is playing at a club with plenty of room at the cap. Akanji for me! Hi Milanista: I have been following Suleymanov's progress (stats) since he got his plus 7. I've earmarked him to look at again after his birthday ie In early january when he's 20. At the moment he's played 11 times but 5 were starts and 6 were subbed on. He's scored 4G with 2 assists. Not exactly Messi standard yet "on paper". If he's done this in a weaker League then he needs more time before being compared to Messi. Nevertheless, knowing you somewhat, I take it you have seen him play and been impressed by him, so this has strengthened my interest in him considerably. Sorry I can't help more atm but I'll keep a lookout for him in Europa League if I can catch him....Thanks for the "heads up"
  2. Hi Hesselink, YES that would be my opinion as I saw Switzerland going thru S Wiki about 3 days ago and I see Scotland has already started so must have been b4 them. Hi Emy I would take Serge Gnabry looked fantastic against Tottenham.

  5. That's really great to know, thanks for your comments Leeds001 😃 You may be interested in my response to Safir6's question about Bielsa's management from a number of pages back, re-produced below:- Re:- "My predictions" I'm sorry to say my time on the computer is severely curtailed by age related ongoing ill health and I haven't even as yet started up & modified my spreadsheet reflecting the new Big5 seasons. It's very time consuming to adapt last seasons spreadsheet to reflect this season and when I'm able, it may reflect very many less clubs/ players than I previously had time for. Nevertheless I intend to make a BIG EFFORT to "have a go" when the season has progressed more. I also hope to be able to upload to the Forum. So all being well you may see some "analysis/predictions" on here in good time before Decembers review. I greatly appreciate your interest tho, so thanks again. The future rating of these 2 isn't easy to predict and could go either way. If I had to choose (I have both) then at this point in time I'd say N.Pepe. MATS Bernardo, Coutinho ......3rd - My opinion of Pogba is he is not really giving his best to ManU (going thru the motions only & injured etc etc) He will have to change clubs and be happy with his club and it's manager, fellow players and title chances b4 giving his best... and perhaps other than World Cups etc we'll not really see his best consistently at all.

  8. Hi Yuasa :- He has (or had) a knee injury because a week or so ago, he was expected to be back in training by 30 August. He's missed all 3 matches so far & also pre-season training from End of July. So putting 2 & 2 together he's doing his pre-season fitness now I guess. Hope it helps ...

  10. Well Safir6:- Tactically he's absolutely top class and he has turned a team of mediocre middle of the championship players into:- (So Far) an almost worthy of being premiership players. Almost is a very large word tho... They create more chances than u would hope to dream of but miss the vast majority of the chances, woefully at times and that after "murdering" most oppositions in midfield. He has coached them to a high standard but they are mostly still short of what it takes for me. Nketiah and Helda Costa look to be possibly the answer but at the moment Bielsa likes one up top and Bamford has no idea how to play as a genuine CF. At the moment Bielsa is persevering with these same tactics. I'm hoping this will change but it's frustrating.... Bielsa is said to prefer a small squad but I wonder if this is an excuse and that he just hasn't been given sufficient financial resources to get into the premiership. Kalvin Phillips and Pablo Hernandez have the required class but others are needed to change/ improve to make the jump. Betfair have Leeds as odds-on favourites for promotion and also favourites to win the title but I wouldn't take those odds without something BIG changes on the pitch. For me, they are more probable, as things stand, to duplicate last seasons "close but not close enough". Small squads tire in the punishing fixture English Championship and we are "smaller" than last season. You never know at some point he may change the formation and Nketiah and Helder Costa may turn out to be a top notch pairing, We'll see ..... and we hope of course...

Can Cam or any other admin please see if u can stop them arriving there ? :- thorgan lesar and Cam Lucas commented on Belgian football (Season '19-'20) + 22 other countries (for example The Netherlands)
  11. No, Premier and some Bundasliga take up too much of my time as it is BUT LU are doing quite well-not much to report injury wise. I can say Kalvin Phillips is playing last two matches with injuries and I think he should be rested. Safir6 are u a LU supporter by any chance??

  14. Post I tried to post 2 hours or so ago has been hidden seemingly. I'd like to know why?? Copied here:- In an endeavour to keep the candle from being totally extinguished in SIR Rahul's "vacated cave" I'll throw a few random stats and thoughts on the "fire" and see if it draws in a few forumers who might be passing and maybe see the "flickering light":- Marek must have been watching an entertaining match Fiorentina 3 versus Napoli 4! Riccardo Sottil 77rated 20y/o, played 78mins & Gaetano Castrovilli 82rated 21yo, 90 mins (+1assist). Scorers in Seri A for Fiorentina were Pulgar in 9th minute, Milenkovic 51 and K Boateng 65mins. Napoli responded with Mertons 38, Insigne 42, Callejon 56 and Insigne again the winner in 67th minute. Must be, the 2 youngsters impressed you Marek?? Also impressing over in the early fixtures of the Bundasliga were Dortmund who top the table after 2 games, Jadon Sancho 2Gls & 2Assists, Paco Alcacer 3G+1A, Reus 1Goal. These 3 along with Hummels, Akanji, & Witsel (2A) all played the full 180mins. Hakimi 50mins (1G), Brandt 50mins (1G), Thorgan Hazard 153mins (1A). Weigl & Schulzboth played 152mins. Bayern Munich: All 180mins Sule, Pavard, Alaba, Kimmich, Tolissso (Un-injured-well done! ) Lewandowski 5Goals!! & Coman. Gnabry 144mins(1A). Pity, Alphonso Davies only 3minutes so far 😢 All have 180minutes for Leverkuson - Havertz (1G), Arranguiz (1G), Leon Bailey (1G), Tah, S. Bender, and Wendell(1A). Volland 167mins (1G+2A), Demirbay 173mins (1A). That will do for now.... Socca
