    Another idiot.
    Says he didn’t pick lenglet cause he doesn’t have international experience. How the **** is he supposed to get that experience?
    Meanwhile walking mistake kimpembe is an automatic pick

    I will always, forever, and never waiver in saying that France won the World Cup despite Deschamps, not because of him.
     
  6. Neuer should be retired too after Mane’s goal

    Just realised Jovic is gonna face his old club. Well current club technically. Footy is mad poetic.
     
  13. how trash is it gonna be for Benfica if he scores the knockout goal, then Frankfurt activates his buy clause, sells him for a good bag and Benfica gets none of it.
     
  14. Can Jovic even play against his parent club? Surely Benfica implemented a clause in which Jovic can't play for Frankfurt against them in European competition.
     
  15. there's none of that in UEFA competitions
     
  16. I realize it's an unpopular take but I'm sticking with a Juve vs. United final at Wanda. It's largely contingent on OGS finding the right centre-half pairing to go with Vic, whether that's Smalling or Bailly. Also Martial being fully fit after the groin injury. I don't think Ole will actually do it, but I'd like to see him start Dalot over Ash Young at OT the first leg.
     
  17. Gotcha, man. My mistake then. FWIW, I don't think Frankfurt beats Benfica over two legs anyway.

    Might be a classic kit, not sure about **** boy pose tho
     
  19. I've been waiting to cop a James or Dav Sanchez for Colombia. Might scoop a Quintero River Plate too while I'm at it.

    Quick tidbit on RM:
    Not that any of us believed James was in Zizou's future plans, given his obsession with subbing on Lucas over Rodriguez but the Militao signing actually complicates the matter even further. Because of the three-player, non-EU limit. Vini is obviously one, Militao becomes two. Rodrygo Goes would be the third, unless we loan him out, which is very possible.

    RM really betting Militao is the next Marquinhos, that can play CB, RB and CDM. Because that fee we're paying Porto is huge compared to what they paid SPFC for him on the low.

    Edit:
    @Coupé It, from what I've seen at SPFC and Porto, Militao plays aggressive in defence. Has a propensity for fouling and picking up cards. Not afraid to be on the ball when we play out the back.

    I ain't trying to watch El Salvador get washed 20-0 buy a European powerhouse.
     
  23. FIFA is trying to do way too much. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

    Bale apparently wants to stay at Real. I’d really like to know why. Dude can go from being the outcast here to a hero in the EPL. Maybe part of it is he thinks his injury proneness is more suited for the Spanish game. But I think it’s gotta go deeper than that.

    This is definitely strange. Like when he plays for Wales he is a leader and a world beater....you would think he would want to do that for a club as well and wouldn't be ok just riding the bench and being constantly critisized. But hey if he is happy and enjoying life the way it is.....happy to have him stay at RM he is an amazing talent.
