    This isn't allowed to be discussed here because cancer is allowed to spread on these forums.

    Joao Felix is going to be sold to a different club. What team would you want him to go to? I feel like he will rot on the bench if he goes to Real Madrid. Please no Italian teams, since most Portuguese don’t do well over there.

    Once they get into the first team we don’t class them as emerging. But no doubt he’s very special and will probably be Portugal’s next superstar player capable of being in the elite echelon of players but he’s only 19 and there’s a long road ahead

    The trouble I see with him is where does he play?

    We cant go with Ronaldo as a lone forward and Felix behind him, we need a presence up front allowing Ronaldo to play his usual role and if Felix plays we lack a winger to stretch the field....B.Silva operates so much better for us through the middle and deeper in midfield.

    I have a feeling Santos might go with

    ----------------------------Patricio---------------------------------------
    ---------------Pepe-----------------------Dias--------------------------
    Cancelo---------------------------------------------------------Gurreiro
    --------------------Neves--------William----------------------------------
    -----------Bernardo-----Bruno Fernandes-------Ronaldo-------------
    ----------------------------Jota/Leao-----------------------------------

    We do have offensive fullbacks but no pure winger to stretch a defense, and Felix would come off the bench.

    I hate to agree with this blok but under Pep this kid would fulfill his potential

    Gonçalo Paciência scored 2 goals for Eintracht Frankfurt this week. I have to confess that I wasn't too sure about his qualities before, but the truth is that he's turning into quite an interesting player. It's unbelievable why he wasn't given more chances at Porto, but the club seems to more care more about mexican players than our own for some reason. Anyways, I wouldn't be angry at seeing him being awarded a call up for NT's League of Nations.

    He had serious heart issues and no one was sure if he could continue playing let alone fulfill his undoubted potential. he’s a big skillfull forward what’s not to like but ever since that health scare it seems his confidence is shot. Hopefully he can kick on

    I read Liverpool were monitoring him at one point. I think he'd certainly do well there as a Firmino understudy.

    Pedro Brazao made his Ligue 1 debut for Nice, at the age of 16!!!!! Wonderful achievement for the attackinr midfielder.

    I know I said no Italian clubs, but I think him developing chemistry with ronaldo in Juventus would do a lot for Portugal. I just hope where ever he goes that he has the confidence to perform with the 100 million price tag pressure.

    That's quite impressive for them to start him that young.

    If you don't mind me asking who do you guys believe are the top 5 or 10 Portuguese talents born '99 or later?

    What do you guys think about Matheus Pereira, as he’s coming close to getting a Portuguese passport, hypothetically being available for nossa seleção?
