I live in Belgium and I take in a lot of games as I've recently started doing small freelance work for a football stats website.
I've been going to a lot of Gent games and their young Georgian attacking midfielder Giorgi Chakvetadze had been outstanding. Very quick with incredible turn of pace and direction. Equally excellent at thru balls as he is at finishing himself.
The type of player who we should be looking at instead of relying on players played against and untried English players.
£15m is the minimum we will receive! I hate how after another card the FF community come out in force to devalue Alfie.. I do remember last season when everyone was happy to take a couple million for him madness on here sometimes.
Bongonda has produced good returns goal and assist wise for a struggling team with not much creative players to help him. The talk of PSV bidding €5m for him this summer as they work a lot with his agent.
I much prefer Răzvan Marin at standard Liege who I think is just in that upper tier of player ready to produce at a higher level and make the step up.
Cristian Benavente like a lot of south ameicans is very natural gifted and very skillful. Unfortunately like a lot of south Americans he loves his nightlife and the idea of being a footballer more than actually developing and bettering himself.
Would love for us to be having a wee look at the Dutch Market. We've had more hits than misses from there in the past plus there's some really good up and coming players there aswell. Also think the Austrian league should be looked at there's always a few gems knocking about over there
Vincent Thill, 19 year old attacking midfielder from Luxembourg. At the moment onloan from Metz to Pau. Very raw at the moment but possess all the hallmarks of someone who will keep developing. Again someone that's equally comfortable on each foot although saves his stunning free kicks for his left. Low center of gravity allows him to stop his insane turn of pace in a second and spin players with a change of direction. Got talking to a Dutch guy who is doing a similar hobby to be buy looking for players and he told me to check him out. At the moment there is 3 of us taking in games as our jobs give us a lot of free time to do so. Hoping this little mini network leads to something.
I'm hoping Milner is coming to finnish his career at Rangers do his badges and join Stevies backroom staff, same scenario as when Skertl was meant to join.
Would love his drive at the club on or off the pitch...
