Re: Monarcas Morelia

The club must be changed to Mazatlán FC
It is virtually the same squad Monarcas Morelia had, but they changed their location to Mazatlán, as well as their badge and colours to purple and white.

Re: Tomáš Vaclík

He eventually confirmed his great start of the season; now it is safe to say Vaclik was one of the best three or four goalkeepers in La Liga, and just behind Ocampos as Sevilla's player of the season. Other sites will surely focus more on Courtois' progression for (which was true anyway) or Unai Sim...

Re: Zack Steffen

Looks like 67 for both SPA and SPS. To be fair, Düsseldorf was unstable by default this season, no matter which keeper they have at their back. If there's something to be blamed on Steffen, that's his tendency to make some awkward moves inside his own box. Those moves confused his D-Line for some mo...

Re: Zack Steffen

He already has what it takes to push for the first team GK spot at Man City if Éderson struggles with form or injuries in the mid term. Also, his footwork looks a bit underrated. He's just a few steps below technically proficient Buli keepers like Sommer or Hradecky. His ball distribution, either sh...

Re: RC Deportivo La Coruña

Relegated to Segunda División B.
Bad administrative staff policies, bad choices on picking managers and an uninspired, lazy squad.

I'm obviously aware of the controversy of last matchday in Segunda División. But still, this club has become the victim of its own mediocrity.

Re: Hull City AFC

Relegated from Championship. Not to be surprised anyway, they started with bad decisions from the moment they were relegated from Premier League three years ago. At first, setting a manager like _rus Leonid Slutsky, who had no experience outside Russia and spoke no English at all. Then Nigel Adkins ...

Re: Mario Götze

Eventually it just didn't work out for him at that false 9 role or any other even in deeper positions. So, even when it was officially announced he was set to leave BVB at the end of the season, he was already surplus to requirements by the end of last year. Imho, if he finds a club in the short ter...

Re: Leandro Trossard

Similar to what I said in Alzate's thread: Trossard has a interesting sense of work ethic upfront. His end up product is hit and miss overall, but you cannot deny he's constantly tracking back and moving all around the final third, moving into channels and demanding the ball properly. Unlike many si...

Re: Ferland Mendy

He messes the offside trap relatively often with his suspicious positioning when tracking back. He's quite solid when danger comes to his proximity, but his usual lack of synchronicity with the rest of the D-Line diminishes his otherwise good performances. He will have to improve his TW for the next...

Re: Fábio Coentrão

He officially retired since late January. He was unattached for more than six months, and he was physically undone for years anyway. It's a pity; those strikes of injuries since the late part of his second season at R. Madrid eventually started to undermine his football career gradually. The loss of...

Re: Ondrej Duda

Results didn't improve at all for Norwich, with Duda as a loanee adition. But, to be fair, I wouldn't blame that much on him for their relegation. Besides their weak defensive system, with Farke failing to manage any improvement in that area during the whole season, Norwich has had serious issues fo...

Re: Djibril Sow

I've read some comparisons between Sow and Witsel as midfielders, which have some valid points. Just like Witsel, Sow is a very supportive player. Of course Sow has a tendency for moving between channels or providing defensive covering when required. But his work ethic is much easier to see when he ...

Re: Mesut Özil

His off the ball movement has become from average to poor in terms of both quality and quantity. He's barely making an impact in game with the ball at his feet, but now he's even more useless when he doesn't have it. No defensive pressing at all, no tracking back to ask for the ball at his feet, min...

Re: Julian Pollersbeck

He seems to be a competent keeper for mid-table sides in 2. Buli, but not more. As Heidenheim lost against already promoted Arminia Bielefeld, HSV only needed to home win against Sandhausen (already safe from relegation and even a prom/rel playoff spot), to have the chance to play a potential promot...

Re: Pavel Kadeřábek

We already know he's hit and miss as a crosser. But, while he already has high values for LPS, I've noticed he actually an even more massive speed in most of his crosses, no matter whether they are lofted, whipped or grounded. It is easier to notice it when he crosses the ball after a sprint on the ...

Re: Thomas Delaney

His numbers in terms of goals and assists at BVB are not as impressive as they were at Bremen. But that's not really something unexpected, considering Lucien Favre signed him for BVB for other reasons. Prior to Favre's arrival at Dortmund, the club was struggling a bit when it comes to intensitivty,...

Re: Salif Sané

He looks a bit faster over long runs, but even worse in terms of passing stats and ball control. He mostly stands out in physical terms, but he's subpar technically speaking for a CB. Also, playing alongside Nastasic is not helping him to improve his performances (and viceversa).

Re: Alessandro Schöpf

I'm a bit dissapointed of his little progression in terms of precission overall since he joined Schalke. His workrrate and speed on the ball are still top notch, but his end up product tends to be weak, and that's the main reason he cannot take his football to a further step. Otherwise, he would sur...

He's not lethargic, he's somewhat compentent striking the ball with either foot, he's good in the air (not as much as DLC, unfortunately) and he's not a dumb forward by any means. So, regardless of his recent problems with injuries, what's preventing Tosun from making a larger impact at Everton? Mos...

I partly share your impressions about him... Yes, just to a certain extent. You see, I don't think he's exactly has huge technical lacklusters. He actually gives me more the impression of being a striker who's not really smart at using all his skills and traits wisely. So he will tend to attempt fir...
