  1. Us. Because we love a flop.
  2. Martial Rashford---------------------Greenwood Sául-----------Bruno Fred Would be sexy.
  3. Saúl is quality. He can play anywhere in midfield and do it well, but he's best at LCM in a midfield three. Leftie. Not a prolific goalscorer, but a scorer of great goals. He needs to get away from Simeone. He spends half his time playing out of position on the wing and having to do a lot more defensive work than a player of his ability should have to. Valverde won't be going anywhere. He's been Real's player of the season. Holds their midfield together.
  4. A lot of them do it. Rooney drank at home. So many PL footballers and managers get caught drink driving as well. And not all of them follow a strict diet. Gary Neville said he felt bad for having a Chinese on a Saturday night after a game with the missus. Lol. Pizza used to be a common treat after games for the Hispanic/Latin players. Fabregas. Haha.
  5. Yep. All over Twitter. Means his move to United is unlikely to happen. Very bad PR. Especially during a crisis.
  6. Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness Probably the best documentary I've watched since Making a Murderer and The Jinx in 2015. You couldn't write these characters in a fiction novel. Pure American white trash.

    Snooker

    My brother used to be a big snooker fan. Sports fan really. Glued to the Tennis, Snooker, Golf, etc. In the 90's and early 00's. But he would rarely watch Snooker these days. The good thing about these sports is the you can play them until you're in your late 50's or more. Huge earning potential in 25+ year career. I mainly only watch the big tournaments for these sports. But I would watch a good amount of golf.
  8. Actually went back to FM20 out of boredom, @Canto. Haha. Liverpool are overpowered as fuck. 21 win leagues games in and they've won every game. Just beat my United side 4-0 at OT, and I was on an 11 game unbeaten run in the league. I edited Fred's stats to turn him into the baller that he is. And sold Pogba to Limerick.

    Snooker

    I remember Snooker being fairly popular growing up (circa late 90's). Ken Doherty. What happened to it? Darts, in contrast, has become very popular and is growing each year.
  10. Tall, powerful runner with a good engine. One of the reasons why Gladbach are competing for The Bundesliga this season. He's more box to box than a holding midfielder. Similar to Thomas Partey who is another beast. Linked with both. But I think we need a specialist DM who sits. Ndidi does that.
  11. I like the battle scene but don't like the scenes with Merry and Pippin trying to convince him.
  12. Too much Merry and Pippin. Treebeard. Drags.
  13. I kind of hate 2 now. I don't like the amount of CGI in 3 either. The dead army, etc. The Fellowship is perfection. It's probably still my favourite trilogy.
  14. June 1st was discussed as a potential return date.
  15. Really? 1 was always by far the best. 3 is trash in comparison.
  16. The Bundeliga is probably as even as it's been since the days when Werder Bremen, Stuttgart and Wolfsburg were winning it. Bayern, RB, BVB and Gladbach are all good sides. Not entirely true. Kagawa went back to Dortmund and did well for a few years. Mkhitaryan is playing very well for Roma this season. Like I said, it's more a case of Dortmund players not adapting to life after Klopp than Bundesliga players as a whole. And Mkhitaryan still provided 22 goals and 24 assists during his time under two very unstable regimes at United and Arsenal. I agree that he wasn't the same player he was during his final season at Dortmund, but they built the team around him. He was just one of many big players at United and Arsenal. Kind of like how Rui Costa went from being a superstar at Fiorentina to just one of many at AC Milan after moving clubs. Evra was poor after leaving United btw. Squad player at Juventus. Poor at United in his finals years too.
  17. Sounds like a Brexiteer view. Zie Germans put Chelsea and Spurs to the sword only a few weeks ago. Kagawa only got 1 year under Ferguson tbf. So we'll never know how he would have done after settling in under a stable regime. Dortmund players and players in general all seem to elevate their game in Klopp's systems. I bet that a few of the Liverpool players will decline if they ever make a move to Real, Barcelona, etc. He was good at Southampton. Box to box. Did a bit of everything. Was getting multiple caps for France. He should have been akin to signing Mané or van Dijk, but he turned out to like Lovren. Now he's nowhere near his Southampton level after dropping back to down to a midtable side. His confidence must be shattered. We were signing Mata, di María, Schweinsteiger and Pogba between 2014-2016, so I don't think it had anything to do with not being able to obtain a certain calibre.
  18. Henderson could probably have been starting by June if the season was still running. I thought Tomori would be partnering Maguire a few months ago. But he has fallen down the pecking order since December. Not sure why, as he was doing well. Max Aarons is another good English RB prospect. Stacked indeed.
  19. Poorly. Very average now. The move to United broke him.
  20. Great debating skills there.
  21. Neco has looked good, yeah. He need to move away from Liverpool though, as TAA will be there for 12+ years. Although TAA could become a RCM in a midfield three.
  22. Had a very steep decline after his ACL injury at Barcelona. Was quality during his prime there.
  23. With the postponement and shifting of Euro 2020 to June 2021, it ha given some of Europe's best youngsters an extra year to stake a claim for a place in the official squads. England: Aaron Ramsdale - GK - 21 years old - Bournemouth He has become their #1 GK this season, so like Dean Henderson, he will be looking to challenge Jordan Pickford and Nick Pope for a place in the squad. Bukayo Saka - LW/LB - 18 years old - Arsenal Having been converted to a LB this season, he has registered 9 assists for Arsenal this season. He will be looking to push Luke Shaw to become Ben Chilwell's backup. Reece James - RB/RWB - 20 years old - Chelsea He has made himself a starting XI regular under Frank Lampard. Unfortunately for him, he has TAA and AWB to contend with. But he is like a hybrid of both players. Phil Foden - AM/RW - 19 years old - Man City He's found regular starts hard to find under Pep Guardiola, but has still managed to scored 3 goals & provide 7 assists this season. David Silva's successor. Callum Hudson-Odoi - RW/LW - 19 years old - Chelsea He already has 2 England caps, but it's been a season of niggling injures and illness fro CHO. He is as talented as any England wide forward. Mason Greenwood - ST/RF - 18 years old - Man Utd 12 goals already during his first full season as a professional. He could be looking at an understudy role like Ronaldo de Lima at the 1994 World Cup. Netherlands: Owen Wijndal - LB/LWB - 20 years old - AZ Alkmaar A part of the current talented AZ squad who are pushing Ajax all the way. 8 assists so far this season. He might be the regular Dutch LB by 2021. Teun Koopmeiners - DM/CB - 22 years old - AZ Alkmaar The captain of AZ already, and just turned 22. He is an expert penalty taker. 16 goals & 3 assists this season. Ryan Gravenberch - CM/DM - 17 years old - Ajax Described by some as a Paul Pogba regen. He's already a regular part of the Ajax 1st team squad. 9 goals & 5 assists between Ajax and Jong Ajax this season. Mohamed Ihattaren - AM/RW - 18 years old - PSV Eindhoven A part of the same talented Dutch 2002 group as Ryan Gravenberch. He's already a key player for PSV. 7 goals & 9 assists this season. Justin Kluivert - LW/RW - 20 years old - AS Roma He already made his debut in 2018, but has just 2 caps in total. Finding his feet at Roma this season. 7 goals & 2 assists up to now. Myron Boadu - ST - 19 years old - AZ Alkmaar He would likely have been leading the line this summer due to Memphis Depay & Donyell Malen's injuries. 20 goals & 13 assists for AZ this season. France: Alban Lafont - GK - 21 years old - FC Nantes 150+ senior career appearances as a GK at just 21. With Hugo Lloris's injuries and loss of form & Steve Mandanda pushing 35, he might be in with a chance. Dayot Upamecano - CB - 21 years old - RB Leipzig Strongly linked with a move to Bayern due to his performances for RB this season, he could replace crocked Samuel Umtitti as Rapahel Varane's new long term CB partner. Eduardo Camavinga - DM/CM - 17 years old - Rennes FC Haven't seen a midfield freak like him since Clarence Seedorf. He's been bossing Ligue 1 games at just 17! Most tackles made in the league this season. Houssem Aouar - CM/AM/LM - 21 years old - Olympique Lyon Lyon's star man and potentially the most gifted French midfielder since Paul Pogba. 9 goals & 7 assists from the maestro. Christopher Nkunku - AM/LM - 22 years old - RB Leipzig Tired of being a squad player at PSG, he moved to Germany and has never looked back. 4 goals & 15 assists already this season. Odsonne Édouard - ST - 22 years old - Celtic FC 11 goals from 6 games for France U21. 27 goals & 19 assists for The Celts this season. Ideal replacement for Olivier Giroud who will be almost 35 by the end of Euro 2021. Spain: Marc Cucurella - 21 years old - LM/LB - Getafe CF Captain of Spain U21. Barcelona sold him to Getafe with a rumoured buy back option. Jordi Alba is getting older, so he is in with a chance at LB. Óscar Rodríguez - 21 years old - AM - CD Leganés (on loan from Real Madrid) Enjoying his 2nd season loan at Leganés, he has scored 7 goals & provided 2 assists in a struggling side. Might move to a mid-table club next season. Ferran Torres - 20 years old - RM/LM - Valencia CF Already a key player at Valencia, and a local lad too. 6 goals & 7 assists this season so far this season. Dani Olmo - 21 years old - AM/LW/RW - RB Leipzig Spain's key man at the last U21 Euro's, and he scored on his Spain debut last time out. He moved to Germany from Croatia in January. Potential key man by 2021. Ander Barrenetxea - 18 years old - LW - Real Sociedad A part of a very talented Sociedad squad. He made his breakthrough this season. He has impressed in The Copa del Rey (3 goals & 2 assists). Ansu Fati - 17 years old - LW/ST - FC Barcelona Barcelona's latest protégé will be 18 by the time of the tournament next year. He's already breaking records at Barcelona.
  24. Saved Mourinho's job with his performances in The League Cup (2 games, 3 assists) and The Europa League (6 goals, including the final). Like Fred, he was treated terribly by Mourinho.
