    It's hilarious though. These SLB douchebags come in to these threads, tout these players up to be the next Ronaldo, and once these players don't live up to the hype, these posters all disappear and go and hype another SLB prospect.

    Just look at the Sanches thread. Everyone was so convinced, now they're migrated over here. F*cking pathetic. Can't admit they're wrong and continue making the same mistakes. Homers gonna homer.

    Oh I have to watch all of his games in their entirety? As if you do lol.
    No I didn't watch the Getafe match, thats why I asked. I watched his last game. it is clear he believes he is world class, as he plays with a lot of confidence. It's clear he is pretty fast but what he did was mostly turn over the ball and fall to the ground. Does he learn to use his team and get better control of passing and shooting before he starts to slow is what I'm looking at.

    Getafe wasn't his last game genius, his last game was vs Eibar. You know the game where I talked about his tap in....Oh wait that's right you don't read or watch ANYTHING. All you do is try to pin your crappy traits on me LOL

    One more fail (amongst countless) for you. The ignorance and desperation is hilarious.

    If Felix can learn to play he could be good as he gets in great spots but then hilariously loses the ball with ease or falls right down. 20 minutes for Portugal, didn't show much. TBH besides Bernardo and William I didn't see much from anyone today.

    I was impressed. He seems composed for his age. He has good self awareness and high IQ.

    I think he looks very promising. His decision making will need to improve as will his strength, but his first touch, off the ball and skill is plain to see. That said many players have had that before him and never full developed so he also needs to find that work ethic and winners mentality before we can label him as the next anything. Though I do find the Kaka comparison a lot more apt than the Ronaldo one.

    Except that Felix is a forward and not a midfielder. I wouldn't compare Felix to anyone but Felix, and I hope develops his game base don his own standards and fit. He is very promising though.

    Pretty quiet on his last 2 league games. He is going to lose his starting spot soon.

    He’s gonna be one hell of a player ... sooner rather than later .. I’ve been trying to think of a player I’ve seen in the past that he reminds me of .. and there’s nobody !!

    He reminds of Joao Felix: works super hard, has great ball control and a really powerful shot. But he's inconsistent, and is weak holding up the ball. He gets muscled off easily.

    It also looks like there may be trouble in paradise. This is what happens when the Benfica homers and pro-SLB media hype up their talent to astronomical levels. Other teams bite, and then get burned:

    Espanhóis já questionam: «O que se passa com João Félix?»
    Português foi substituído nos últimos três jogos do Atlético Madrid

    João Félix deslumbrou os adeptos do Atlético Madrid durante a pré-temporada mas desde o início do campeonato "parece outro", segundo escreve a 'Marca'. Foi substituído nos últimos três jogos e o jornal desportivo sediado na capital espanhola já questiona: "o que se passa com João Félix?". "Há apenas rastos da alegria no jogo e da calma que oferecia quando controlava a bola", pode ler-se na mesma peça.

    I am a little disappointed in Felix. Atletico is not the right team for him.
    I think Leao will surpass him. He is a real good talent and fast.
    anyone see that goal he scored in SERIE A against Fiorentina?
    talk about a Bomba!

    Here come the "it's not the right team for him" nonsense that Renato got.

    Let's face it, Felix is a scam. He has some potential, but Atletico were ripped off big time. He is the next Andre Silva for Portugal...without the goals.

    Felix had a strong game this week in champions league. I rewatched the game in its entirety. His technique and first touch is superb. Most impressive was probably his role in the 2nd goal, rather than the one he scored himself.

    Imagine Felix and Leao up front in Qatar 2022? I reckon it could become the most lethal World Cup striker pairing since Rivaldo and Ronaldo 2002.

    You are giving nbstriker a run for his money for dumbest poster on this forum.

    Let me guess, those comments are all made by fake pro benfica media bots

    I agree Barcelona should have purchased Felix to replace Messi. Messi could have helped groom Felix like Ronaldinho did with messi.

    Felix hasnt proven anything bro, a cl match away in Russia means nothing. Until he does that away to Getafe i will not be impressed. That video is photoshopped by the pro Benfica media, trust me i was at the game bro none of that happened. Its cause Benfica has a sell on percentage of 15 percent for when Atletico sells him, so they are still trying their best to overhype him like they do with all Benfica youth like Sanches. Everyone knows the true best youth academy is SPORTING! We have so many recent stars from our academy like Esgaio, Ilori, Figueiredo, Gelson and now Miguel Luis! Those guys are all better than Felix, Semedo, Cancelo, Bernardo and should be worth 70-100 million too, just media hates us! The fake news is the enemy of the people in Portugal! Sad!
