re: 2015/2016 Transfer Discussion - wm72
I've certainly been wrong before but if I were a Real fan I would rather have Rafa than Klopp. To me, Klopp's biggest question mark at Dortmund was never figuring out a way to adjust his style to not having a roster full of 20-22 year old players that would sprint 20km a match. He stuck to...

re: 2015/2016 Transfer Discussion - wm72
Rafa is certainly a good manager but he underwhelmed at Napoli more than Carlo at Real the past two seasons. Rafa was ok at Napoli but they had the roster to do better and actually had done better the previous few seasons under Mazzarri. He's certainly a top manager with a strong resum...

re: UEFA Club Ranking (Actual) - wm72
This is the UEFA coefficient list. Has nothing to do with how good teams are now but simply how many points following the UEFA system they have scored in Europe over the past five seasons. ...

re: 2015/2016 Transfer Discussion - wm72
I like Milner but where exactly is he planning on going where he'll figure more prominently than at City and get to play more the #10-ish role? He's certainly good enough to do that for mid-table sides all over Europe but can't see him doing so for many CL caliber sides. No big criticism a...

re: Paris all but clinch 3rd straight Ligue 1 title - wm72
I watched that match yesterday. Verratti was incredibly good. That one play where he had about 5 tackles in a sequence and then the assist to Ibra was one of the plays of the season. If Pogba is worth €80m, Verratti may be worth €90m. Also, seems Cavani is finishing chances a lot bet...

May be bad news for the EPL trying to hang onto the 4th CL spot for 2016-17. Eredivise has to be hating this as well as it seems they will get another team as well just as they're fighting to maintain their 2nd CL spot. ...
