Young Talents


#141

He never held the monopoly. F.e. a lot of these French players were playing in Italy and Spain of the '98 and '00 squads. We just get nothing noteworthy from there anymore post-2012. Which is weird.


#142

When is Cyprien supposed to return?


#143

No idea, I think he’s training.

@TheSpecialCnut Fuck, one search result says February or March.


#144

Of course he did. They may have been based in Europe but they were predominantly French.


#145

What :sweat_smile:?


#146

Of course arsene Wenger held the monopoly. They may have been playing in Europe but were still French, and Wenger by proxy knew them.

– sorry, kinda drunk, posting during piss breaks :smile:


#147

Holding a monopoly and knowing the market are two different things imo :wink:.


#148

Yeah very fucking true tbh I concede :smile:

Federico Valverde, youth signing for Madrid that we were apparently interested in a few years ago, scored a goal for Uruguay on an impressive debut at the age of 19. On loan at Depor right now. More signs that Madrid is winning. :frowning: Their abundance of midfield talent is ridiculous and puts Barça–who Bartomeu yesterday insisted would benefit from the Neymar departure by returning to more their more traditional midfield oriented approach (:joy:)–to shame.

Depor fan I follow posted this during pre-season. We was definitely interested, jeorgebird posted a photo a while back of him on trial here, don’t think we can compete for these type of talents unfortunately.

Adama is the type of player you could convert to wing back and basically have Ox last season. Which effectively demonstrates how ridiculous it would’ve been to turn down a significant sum of money for him.

#155

Would have over Walcott


#156

After 4 minutes :joy:


#157

Pietro Pellegri scored a brace for Genoa against Lazio yesterday, youngest ever goal scorer in Serie A already at 16.


#158

Was about to post about him. Fucking hell! Only 16 years old and already 3 goals in Serie A. Let’s see what he can do in the future.

Bit jealous at Juventus, Monaco and Dortmund finding and signing good/great u-23 players like it’s nothing…I mean we got Nelson, but still.
