    If it helps anybody’s ego Messi won the ESPY for best international player. Zlatan (obviously) won best MLS player

    gotta be the dumbest ish ever....... the top 6 rated teams make it to a hex? let teams play there way in the rounds to get in... usa and mexico play against top teams in the world thru out the years ..... some of the lesser teams lucky to get a team against a world class team.... these new rules are horrible

    West Ham in for Haller. Still think United should have jumped on him as Lukakus replacement.

    Frankfurt want 40 mil

    His aerial prowess will be suitable for any Premier League club especially for 40 mill. If he was English with that build he'd be going for 80+ mill. That's not even considering his assist contributions either.

    Griez is licking his chops for a classico game to score and celebrate. Licking his chops i tell ya :smh:


    Ya consider this signing bigger than Hazard signing to Real. Excluding de jong from this convo.

    they are two different players... but imo equally talented in their own respect.
    I know I been dogging on hazard but i’ve Always said he’s the most talented player in the prem

    Griez has produced a lot for atleti especially when you consider how defensive they are.
    The thing about griez is you can put him in all 3 positions up front, he works his *** off defensively, and is also great in the air.
    Messi and griez is gonna scary cause his movement off the ball is superb.

    We’ll see how the season goes cause hazard has never been paired with this level of talent either. He’s had to carry Chelsea like a lite version of what Messi does.

    I really like the kit color, pattern, etc... but this may be the biggest example of Chevy using the gold logo completely ruining the kit. An all black outline for the sponsor would be 10000x cleaner :smh:

    To champs points about RM. I think it all comes down to Zidane. Everyone says he doesn't play with a #10. Well what if he did? And i love Vinicius and do not want to see him end up with like Isco or Asensio (tons of talent but can't get into the team). But he is 19 and i don't know if coming in as a sub some times will necessarily stunt his growth. What if the kid is fine with playing outside right instead of left and takes that spot as a starter?

    I have tons of questions about the line ups with Benz vs Jovic and Marcelo vs Mendy are they selling Celballos, Isco, Vasquez, Mariano, Bale or Asensio? Will Rodrygo get any playing time how about Brahim?

    The talent is there. It's up to Zidane to make it fit. And as cliche as it sounds....if they win games...no one will care.
