    Iheanacho is the best player in the country.
  3. 16th August 2019 - 16th May 2020 Current Champions: Bayern Munich Bayern Munich The 2019/2020 Bundesliga will be an interesting title race for Bayern, due to the many changes happening behind the scenes throughout the league. Bayern Munich will be looking to win their 8th consecutive Bundesliga title, but have lost two of their greatest ever players in Arjen Robben and Franck Ribéry. And they have also sold Matts Hummels to their biggest title rival. But as usual, Bayern have already conducted some transfer activity nice and early in the window, having secured the services of France's World Cup winning full-backs Lucas Hernandez and Benjamin Pavard. While they should win the league once again, they are in need of some attacking reinforcements to bolster their attack. Leroy Sané has been linked with the club. Borussia Dortmund The 2012 Bundesliga champions have made their intent be known this summer; they want their title back. BVB have been the busiest team in the league this window, having brought in 6 players already. Paco Alcácer, Thorgan Hazard, Nico Schulz, Julian Brandt, Mateu Morrey and Matts Hummels have all signed for the club this summer, in what is a complete revamp of the BVB squad. They'll be hoping to go one better this season, after what would be 8 years since their last title win should they fail to close the gap on Bayern. RB Leipzig Leipzig have hired Julian Nagelsmann as their new manager. At just 31 years of age, he is one of the youngest and brightest coaches in world football. He did a brilliant job with his former club Hoffenheim, and Leipzig will be hoping that his methods can improve what is one of the youngest and most talented squads in German football. Hannes Wolf, signed from their Austrian counterpart RB Salzburg, has been their most high profile signing this summer. The club have sold Portuguese winger Bruma to PSV Eindhoven, so more signings are likely before the season starts. Bayer Leverkusen Leverkusen are the Spurs or Roma of The Bundesliga. A team that plays good football and is always there or thereabouts in terms of winning things, but can never quite get over the line. They also have a very young and talented squad like RB Leipzig. Kai Havertz is their prize asset and one of the most promising young players in Europe. They sold Julian Brandt to Dortmund earlier in the window, but were quick to replace him with the signing of Kerem Demirbay from Hoffenheim. And they've also signed promising young French winger Moussa Diaby from PSG in France. They'll be hoping to finish inside the top 4 more comfortably this season under the guidance of Peter Bosz who took over halfway through lasts season. The other contenders for CL football Schalke 04 has a pretty terrible season in 2018/2018, finishing in 14th. They are usually a regular part of The Champions League. The club have hired former Huddersfield manager David Wagner and will be hoping that he can get them back to where they belong. With players like Bentaleb, Konoplyanka and McKennie in their ranks, top 7 should have been their minimum finish. Eintracht Frankfurt have been a breath of fresh air these past two years. They won The German Cup in 2018 and had a great run in The Europa League last season. Unfortunately for them, Luka Jović was so eye catching during his time at the club, Real Madrid bought him the second he signed on permanently with the German club. But not to worry, they made a huge profit on what was a loan punt in 2017. Benfica's incompetence was their gain. The club still have many other talented players such as Haller, Rebić and Gaćinović. They need to try to hold onto these players if they want to break into the top 4. But signings like Djibril Sow and Filip Kostić (on loan last season) will help strengthen the squad overall. Wolfsburg could once say they had players of the calibre of Edin Džeko and Kevin De Bruyne playing for them. They've regressed in recent seasons, but will be hoping to improve on last season's 7th place finish under new manager Oliver Glasner. He has brought in fellow Austrian Xaver Schlager from RB Salzburg, and the club have signed Kevin Mbabu who impressed with Young Boys in The Champions League. Weghorst will have to have an even more prolific season in front of goal if they are to bridge the gap.

    Bundesliga 2019/2020

    Another 2 goals from off the bench for Haaland. 5 goals from less than 90 mins ffs.
  5. He was injured at Villa too.
  6. Keep: De Gea Romero Maguire Tuanzebe Lindelöf Rojo (squad player) Wan-Bissaka Williams Fred McTominay Lingard (squad player) James Rashford Greenwood Gomes Garner Laird Levitt (loan) Sell: Grant (release) Young (release) Bailly (release) Chong (release) Dalot (injury prone and we have Laird) Jones Shaw* Matić Pogba* Andreas Mata Martial* *Need to be replaced with quality players (LB, CM, ST).
  7. As the games go by, the only players I have faith in for the long term are; Romero (backup) Henderson (deserves his chance after multiple loan moves) Williams AWB Fred McTominay Garner (but needs a loan) James Rashford Greenwood I'd add Tuanzebe to that list, but his injuries are a huge concern. And Maguire will be here by default. 10-12 players out of a 28 man squad! That is shocking. Greenwood Rashford------------AM------------------RW Fred-----McTominay Williams-----Maguire-----CB-----------AWB Henderson We still need a RW, AM, DM, CB and a LB to add to the above. And we'll only sign 3 at maximum next summer.

    Daniel James 2019/20

    He shouldn't be starting as many games as he is. Last season was his 1st full season at senior level. So from being a 20 year old with very little experience outside of PL2 (U23) football, he's gone from that to being a starter at Manchester United after just 33 Championship appearances. That it crazy. He'll be a good squad player in the long term, with a specific skillset for certain games and a real asset on the counter. I don't think referees protect him enough either. He's been targetted by multiple teams this season. He's a tough little bastard.

    Are you illiterate? It's his only chance of staying in a job. So I assume he gives a fuck about it.

    It qualifies you for the Champions League.

    The Europa League is his only chance now. We're going to finish around 7th if things stay like this.

    So Ole is promising us a CL final next season then. No pressure.
  13. Greenwood Lingard---------Andreas---------Chong Matić-----TFM Shaw----Jones-----Bailly-----Dalot Romero Subs: Grant, Williams, AWB, Maguire, Garner, Gomes, Martial Ole will probably play a stronger side against City.

    Based on the team Watford played tonight, we could have beaten them. Tranmere will be up for it big time.

    Watford will probably bow out tonight after throwing away a 3-0 lead in the previous match. Avoiding relegation at all costs is Pearson’s goal. Of course he’s fucked.

    Wolves are the one team who can possibly prevent Liverpool from staying unbeaten. Think of the injustice, Pedro Neto. Do it for the people. The world. For Shoot.

    2020 Transfer Targets

    We’d be winning titles with Cleverley. Vevcino was better at Fiorentina than Inter.

    2020 Transfer Targets

    The type of player who suits Serie A. Wouldn’t be a good fit for English football.
