    Dude, shut up. When have you asked me for sources and I've not provided them?

    My source is straight from Pachuca's presidents mouth, trasnfermarkt is highly unreliable with transfer values.

    Also this:
    http://www.sancadilla.net/2017/06/columna-san-cadilla-reforma-20-06-2017.html

    You could google translate but the gist of it is that PSV bought Lozano for 24.5 million euros with Pachuca keeping 30% of his rights which essentially means that PSV didn't even pay for his total value.

    Ok, I'll believe you, but 14, 24, 22, what is it? Market inflation probably has Altidore's deal in 2008 at about the same level, too.

    why would I argue whether one of the best wingers in the Bundesliga is better than a winger just getting his feet wet in holland. Look how depay ended up

    Where's the Canadian guy that claims Davies is as good as Pulisic?

    Davies has now played 1118 minutes in MLS, no goals, 1 assist.

    I'll just leave this here for your amusement :)
    This is real. Donald Trump's son plays for DC United.
    Hopefully he becomes a great player & transfers to Club America!!! :)!!!!!
    [Joking aside, this little guy must have it tough. We should wish him the best as he has nothing to do with his father's politics.]

    Hope he's a Slovenia fan and gets capped by them if he's good.

    The Guardian: Next Generation 2017: 60 of the best young talents in world football

    https://www.theguardian.com/footbal...0-of-the-best-young-talents-in-world-football


    CONCACAF
    • Canada: Alphonso Davies (Vancouver Whitecaps) At just 16, Alphonso Davies has achieved some remarkable things at senior level. In July he became the youngest player to score at the Gold Cup at 16 years, eight months and five days old. The hard-working, delightfully technical and scarily fast Canadian was also named the Best Young Player at the tournament, where he picked up the Golden Boot for his three goals. Capable of playing across the attacking line, Davies excels at moving into pockets of space between the full-back and centre-back, where his direct running towards goal or his willingness to stretch the play wide can be factors in developing dangerous attacks.

    • Mexico: Diego Lainez (Club América): A diminutive, left-footed forward with a sharp burst of pace who likes to entertain and take players on. Yes, Tabasco’s Diego Lainez has been compared to Lionel Messi and even says he “identifies” with the Argentinian. Although Lainez is unlikely to get near Messi's level, he has certainly got fans in Mexico excited. Lainez was given his Club América debut in Liga MX last March by Ricardo La Volpe, who has since left as manager, and the then 16-year-old made an immediate impression, even though he had jumped straight from the under-17 squad. La Volpe, a former Mexico manager, said in an interview that Lainez – who can play on either wing or behind a striker – had the talent to move to Europe within a year or two and it isn't difficult to see why. Playing time in Liga MX has been more difficult to come by this season under Miguel Herrera but Club América have given Lainez permission to feature at the under-17 World Cup, which he has the potential to light up. The Atlas forward Jairo Torres and Pachuca striker Roberto de la Rosa are two other names to keep an eye on in Mexico.

    • United States: Timothy Weah (Paris St-Germain Academy): Weah has the genes to thrive thanks to his father, George (yes, that George Weah). Weah Jr was born and raised in the US before moving to France in 2014 to join the academy at his father's former club PSG. He can play on the right or through the middle, something that should help him fit into PSG's 4-3-3 formation. He has an eye for goal too – scoring a hat-trick on debut for PSG in the Uefa youth league. Weah has represented USA at under-17 level.

    • United States: Andrew Carleron (Atlanta United): Whereas many of the US's young talents – Christian Pulisic is a notable example – have chosen to move abroad to develop their careers, Carleton is a true homegrown talent. Born and raised in Georgia, he made his debut for his local MLS team Atlanta United in front of 45,000 fans this season at the age of 16. Carleton models his attacking, positive game on his hero Cristiano Ronaldo, and scored 20 goals in 32 games for the USA under-17s. He is also keen to show that the US can produce world-class players without help from Europe: "[I want] to be able to show that you don't necessarily have to go to Europe at 15, 16, 17 years old to be a top-of-the-line player," he told Bleacher Report this year.

    Weak, you took a post from nearly two years ago. And frankly, Besler, Brooks and Cameron are all proven and three of our 10 or so best players, maybe five or so. Gonzalez has dropped off since, but that post was from nearly two years ago. Hedges has been in poor form the last half year, but has been really good for years, otherwise. And the young CB's I named are progressing, I'll include Glad in there who is better than any young Mexican CB.

    It's actually a rather accurate description, especially when you consider that was from nearly two years ago.
