re: The German Youth Revolution - crazy4lsu
To be fair, the German youth revolution started a long time before Klinsmann. The DFB started the plan after 2000, with their poor showing at the 98 WC and Euro 2000. Klinsmann was a part of that revolution, but he wasn't the one who started it. Uli Hesse Lichtenberger has an article on it called "O...

Jack played way better on the right than he did deep last season. I remember when he was coming up some thought he was going to be an inverted winger. He certainly has the dribbling ability to do that, but I really want him to become a DLP. If he adapts his dribbling ability so that he drives forwar...

[quote]And I don't think Romero has been great, but he has been solid.

Also I hope we never see the Arteta/Flamini pair considering our depth. I'm excited to see what Diaby can do in the B2B position. I think he's the last holdover from the youth policy days. Such a massive talent, and he got injured right when it seemed like things clicked for him. Hopefully w...

He was very good for Bolton when he played there. He's been hurt the last two seasons which hindered his development in a massive way. He will leave us and possibly become good in four or five years. Disappointing, as he was a really exciting player when we first got him. ...

re: Liverpool sells Suarez to Barca - crazy4lsu
Nah, teams are trying to mark him out of games, so his reaction is not to move, and then receive the ball to his feet from deep and try to dictate play. He's certainly not running laterally to receive the ball, or creating space for others by moving away from the play. What he is doing is working, a...

It's all for the sake of not hindering the development of Jenkinson. But enough about him. With Sanchez in, I'm guessing Miyachi won't get a chance now? He is another favorite of mine and I really wished he pulled through. I love the fact that he is primarily a runner, and lord knows how much we...

re: Liverpool sells Suarez to Barca - crazy4lsu
What Barca needs is willing runners off of Messi's dribbles. Messi barely has any movement at all anymore, so he asks for the ball to his feet, so he needs other players to exploit the space his dribbles will create. I wouldn't be surprised if he doesn't fit into Barca's system, and he might be the ...

[quote]maybe he hasn't lost the desire to develop a young talent into a world class player.[/quote] Maybe he has. All the players of that generation are playing elsewhere now.

You right, but I just like Jenkinson a lot and hope he makes it. I wish English players were willing to go out on loan abroad, as it would be useful for him to play in some CL ties as well. I think he's clearly a PL quality RB, I actually think he should be on the England team, considering they've h...

From what little I've read about Manquillo, I'm skeptical that this will go through. I imagine that Newcastle or someone else wants Jenkinson on loan, and he needs game time, so we want to loan Manquillo and include a buy clause just in case we like him a lot. ...

I don't think he's played all that badly when he's been given a run of games. It's true he doesn't fit into the attacking game that we want to play, but he's gotten much better. I would like to remind people that Mertesacker could barely make a forward pass a season or two ago and now he's much more...

So what happens to Jenkinson if we get Manquillo? Does that mean he is our new CB? I think that's where he probably projects long term, as he's a fantastic athlete, literally one of the best we've had, but he doesn't have the technical ability to play in the final third like we like to. I wouldn't m...

I thought Juventus was going to the 4-3-3 as well. With two strikers it makes sense because you have depth for Llorente, but who knows where Tevez is going to play in the 4-3-3. And they seemed to give up the Sanchez chase rather easily, yet they spend 22 mil on a backup attacking player? Very confu...
