International Football 16-17

Recommended Posts

Some interesting results happened in CL quali round 3. Hapoel Beer Sheva kicks Olympiacos out, Young Boys Bern advances against Shakhtar and Dundalk wins against BATE. An Irish team in the CL group stage would be insane.

Hard to choose just one, so I'll list some of the best ones IMO:

 

Karius to Liverpool 

Mkhitaryan to United

Gundogan to City

Kante to Chelsea

Mandanda to Palace

Hojbjerg to Southampton

Kante to Chelsea... completely unbiased opinion ;) 

 

But in all seriousness, Chelsea need him  to produce if they want to qualify for any European tournament.

I'm happy i'm not the only one that likes the Hojbjerg signing. He's such a good reliable and flexible player. My pick for breakout players of the year.

He's the leader and bright prospect they need after another relatively depressing summer after the departures of their top two scorers and their manager. I'm prediciting him for PFA YPoY.

So... Liverpool beat some Spanish team 4-0 yesterday. 

 

I know, I know, it's just preseason and it means diddly squat, but still, watching the highlights, it was pretty cool. 

 

Also, how about this header from Marko Grujić:

They also lost 4-0 today against some German team. :P

What? There was a game today? I didn't even know :P 

 

Yeah that was bad. But, seriously, who's the idiot in Liverpool's front office that scheduled two games in two days?

Pretty obvious who is going to win for Serie A (Juventus), Bundesliga (Bayern, although Dortmund as a shot) and Ligue 1 (PSG), but La Liga could be a little tricky this season. I'm thinking Atletico pulls it out this year and wins by a couple of points on Barca. Thoughts?

No one has mentioned it here yet, but Paul Pogba's transfer to Manchester United has officially gone through for what's believed to be £89 million, which would be a new world record.

Not expecting OM to win, but qualifying for Europe would be nice. 

 

Oh, and avoiding regulation.

 

Might have to cheer for Lyon to an extent, just so PSG loses. Might have a chance, but closing 1-4 doesn't bring me hope for Lyon beating PSG. 

 

Dark horses all around.

I'm seeing alot of people saying that Bournemouth will go down and Southampton out of the top 10 but i disagree with both and i think Bournemouth as a serious  shot to finish in the top 10.

I don't think Bournemouth goes down. Hull has a spot locked down. I think Burnley will go down and I think that after many years of coming close, West Bromwich will go too. As for a top 10 finish for Bournemouth, it will be tough. I see them anywhere from 12-15.

That comparison is pretty lame. James Milner is strictly a winger, Pogba is probably the best versatile midfielder in world football and operates as such, defensively, when required.

 

12 assists was also the top of Serie A.

That's the big thing too. Other than Higuain, no one else was on a massive scoring streak in Serie A last year. It should be interesting to see how he does against players that aren't as technically gifted as the defenders in the Serie A. I think either his assists or goals will jump up a bit if he and the starters for United stay healthy.
