    Almost done and he'll be playing Champions League Football again! A good situation...maybe this can get him flowing with goals again.

    He’ll also face Balanta, who just joined Club Brugge (the 4th team in Group A).

    Something, but not much. River has derechos de formacion, which in Falcao’s case would be maybe 4-5% of the transfer sum and in Balanta’s probably like 2%.

    Neither transfer was done for a crazy figure (Falcao is rumored to have joined Gala for €3m; Eder left Basel for €2.3m), so River will receive maybe +/-€150,000 between the two. Something is something, but such a figure will go unnoticed and directly into the dirigentes’ pockets.

    On a completely unrelated note, I have a very strong feeling Falcao will score on RM this season. Remember this post..

    Galataasary has had a fantastic window picking up some quality talent, Falcao didn't go to a team looking to retire, they are looking to compete in the champions league which is great for the NT.

    Yeah the top teams have been good but like most of Europe these days the huge money in the market has made it hit or miss, they've been a bit down the last couple years but their window looks like they are serious about being competitive in Europe. That said it would take a monumental effort to qualify with PSG and Real in their group but Europa league might be a more realistic goal anyways.

    It will take more talent to strengthen the squad...if this is the best that they've been able to do, then the strength must be focused on chemistry? I think of the time when Falcao and James first arrived at Monaco and while they worked hard to get back to a higher status in French Football, the investments just went to hell when Monaco just sold all of their players...I hope that Galatasaray holds that ambition and develops a hell of a team this season....

    Monaco did really well though for a few years about as well as they could hope, they beat PSG to win the league and went deep in champions league and upset Man City along the way. They sold all of their talent for a nice profit and are now struggling for sure but being a club that develops young talent part of the deal is you let those players leave and take a profit which helps you convince more young talented players to come to the club.

    Gala picked up Nzonzi, Lemina, Seri as well as Ryan Babel. Babel and Nzonzi I think are great value and Nzonzi especially is a really good holding mid and will help the team right away. Lemina, Seri, Emre Mor are a bit more of a gamble having shown a lot of promise but not really fulfilled it, will be interesting to see if they can get the most from those guys and if Falcao can still provide goals.

    You know I forget how nice their jerseys are; I may pick this one up with Falcao's name.

    Are different types of teams with different preasure. And the importance that inhave each one the league that plays is different.

    Gala is a huge, historic team that all years should win the league of turkey...without excusea their fan base famous in whole world.

    Monaco is a small club with tradition and succes, that build interesant projects every some years without the pressure of a big team.....have won a lot of times the league but at the same time got demoted or is in riak of demotion with relarive frecuency....always invest in young prospects and ocassionaly in big players to being title contender. Are well serves if they are top 3
