    Look at my guy now, first two games at Dortmund came in as a sub and scored a hattrick and a double! Legend in the making

    He’s a killer, dude was at it again today! Practically the poster child for modern strikers; lethal in the box, his movements creates havoc to open more spaces and liked to participate in build-up. The fact Dortmund have him & Jadon Sancho is brutal, I would honestly try to convince both to stay and form a superteam with what they got. Whatever the case they’ll be commanding huge fees for both in due time.

    @Alpha we finally beat those Mattress-Makers at home. Zizou’s Plan A backfired in the first half, but luckily Plan B worked. Great play from Vini and Mendy, he’s really been coming into his own lately, to get Benz the winner. Don’t care that Atleti we’re missing key starters, that’s there problem, Cholo Simeone might have to consider moving on. Big win, top of the league and we’re advancing in the Copa. It’s the key phases of the season, we’re riding on great form & confidence, plus, Hazard coming back soon. Let’s hope for the best!

    How good is Ziyech in the opinion of someone who (I assume) watches him every week?

    From what I’ve seen of him he looks good and stats reflect that, but I’m curious as to why seemingly no other clubs were in for him & he only cost ~£35m when he’s reaching his peak age...I could see him struggling physically in the prem

    I’m curious because United need a RW & Sancho could be possible now Chelsea have strengthened there already, they won’t spend £100m+ on another winger

    It's mostly his age that dropped his price tag--on top of coming from the Eredivisie where we don't see that many astronomical fees, at least when they're not prodigies like De Jong/ De Ligt.

    Chelsea got a very good stop-gap solution meanwhile Hudson-Odoi & Pulisic develop & figure things out. Ziyech takes shots...lots of them. There isn't a chance or distance where he says "Yeah Imma take a rip" and lets one fly, along with having a decent eye at crossing & participates heavily in ball progression from the right.

    The Sancho sweepstakes are gonna be interesting, a lot of BPL teams could easily accommodate him. United could desperately use his final-third dribbling and elite creativity, hopefully the club improves their conditions on the table and gets a UCL spot. Ideally, he should stick around BvB, him & Haaland could be something special!

    Right now, he's really really good.

    But when he first came to Ajax, those years, the only thing people saw on tv were his incredible passes, goals and crosses. But he was also responsible for Ajax losing the ball a lot and didn't really help to defend it after. He grew a lot though and now he's a way more sympathetic player than he used to be.

    Also he agreed to stay another year w Ajax a few years back agreeing he could leave for, I think it was 25 million euro. Last year they changed the contract to make him stay another year. My guess is, that they made the number a little higher, to make him stay another season.

    Man City pathetic cheats.
    Pep hopefully leaves & so will a few of their players.

    Liverpool are incredible. Net spend of only 70m since Klopp took over.

    Hey I thought you liked Chelsea as well. :')

    From what I've seen of Ziyech he looks like a really good player. Although I feel like this signing tells us that we've given up on Sancho (or even Willian.... :emoji_cry:)

    Not sure how are teams gonna look next season but I feel like Hudson-Odoi and Pulisic is our wing combo for the future... with Mount behind them :lawd:

    As much as I'm not a fan of Man City and would love to see them crumble. I hope they dont remove their past titles. Would mean that Gerrards infamous slip would end up with a trophy. I dont know how Liverpool fans would feel but it would totally diminish the significance of the Premier League title they're undoubtably gonna win this season.

    Big big games today, I hope Atleti get stomped firstly...

    All this Mbappe vs Haaland talk is distracting from what I believe will be the more decisive players today: Neymar & Sancho. I hope we get a 9 goal thriller

    Crazy game, 1st half both teams were constricted a bit by microtactics (PSG looking for limited gegenpressing opportunities, BvB looking more towards ball retention than chance creation via overloading the wings--just to make sure PSG don't kill them on the break).

    2nd half the chains were unshackled and we saw a lot more explosiveness. Neymar even at 60% was a threat at times and what more can I say about Haaland? The kid is a beast, pressing the PSG midfield and overall linking up well with teammates, took his two chances brilliantly. Mbappe is definitely better playing off a true #9 or out wide, was way too isolated vs BvB's back 3 plus Di Maria having a stinker didn't help.

    PSG have a tall mountain to climb without midfield pillar Verratti, along with those ghosts from previous eliminations still haunting them. BvB's defense had a good day, but I doubt they'll fare better in Paris vs Icardi and a healthier Neymar. They will however need to figure out a way to stop Haaland, Sancho & Hakimi from wreaking havoc once more, easier said than done really.
