Players who have impressed you recently

Who are they? Post a video. Random thread, but it could be entertaining and educational.

Lucas Moura - I don't follow Brazil's league that much and I try not to get wrapped up in the hype of the young Brazilians, so I had never seen highlights of him til tonight. I really like the way this guy moves with the ball at his feet. He's stupid quick and he makes defenders look silly.

Marco Verratti - a young Italian who also plays for PSG (unfortunately, since I'm a l'OM fan). His passing is sick. I can see what some people have started to call him the young Pirlo. He plays a similar role and does it very, very well.

Here is a good article on him if you guys want more info.

Alrighty. Show and tell time. Let's go.

Homer pick - Tony Watt

Video's old, but he's been really impressive so far this season.

Darren Mattocks. Recently voted the top player under the age of 24 in MLS. Jamaican international headache.

Has a great eye for goals, makes brilliant runs look way too easy. He makes Vancouver's offense tick. Super confident and super athletic...had the greatest header of all-time earlier this season: AIR MATTOCKS

I know this pick is "too easy", but Demba Ba.

Graham Zusi: Future USMNT Regular

I've been high on him for awhile, but now I'm high on him like Dre and Snoop on the chronic.

Tom Ince - Blackpool

Peter Whittingham - Cardiff

El Hadji Diouf - I knew he was good last year when I watched him play for Doncaster, but he is the best player on the pitch at Leeds.

Even though he plays for Liverpool, I have seen him a few times this season and you have to like what you see in Raheem Sterling.

As a United fan so far I like our signing Kagawa, and of course RVP but its not like he was a long shot or anything....

szabolcs huszti

couldnt really find a video from this season, but he's been the best player in the BuLi thus far. the hungarian has 3 goals and 7 assists to go along with 34 created chances in only 5 matches this season.

Dzeko. Prior to last game he's been on an absolute tear, I think he's scored in every games he's played in since the finale against qpr last season

quote:

Marco Verratti


I'm still upset Roma couldn't match PSG's offer for him. Prandelli's diatribe about letting him out of Serie A is a bit overblown considering the salary/transfer PSG paid and that the interest was there from other clubs. Also, with Ancellotti/Allegri, it seems that most Italian players are considering PSG about like a Serie A north club right now. It was common this summer to hear lists of possible destinations from players like Balzaretti etc that were the Italian bigs + PSG added.


Another player from that Pescara squad that's impressing is Lorenzo Insigne. It's still early, but he too, has stepped right in at 20 years old into Lavezzi's spot for Napoli and they haven't missed a beat.


Not a specific player, but all the young Brazilians (Alex Teixeira, Fernandinho, Willian etc) for Shaktar looked very, very good along with Henrikh Mkhitaryan against Juventus in the CL. Both Juve and Chelsea will have their hands full in that group.
