    Memphis is being linked too. I think both Gini and Memphis are in their final years of contracts... so could be cheap options for money-strapped Koeman.

    The move that I really like to see is Donny V.d Beek (maybe with Suarez the other way around to Ajax to finance this). Donny and Frenkie grew up together in Ajax system, and have solid understanding with each other. Both running the show in Barca midfield would be awesome to watch. A Xavi-Iniesta version 2.0? Would translate well to Oranje N.T.

    NY Times Columnist Rory Smith on the Barca situation:

    If Josep Maria Bartomeu, the Barcelona president, was trying to project an image of dynamism, and decisiveness, and power, then he succeeded. Within 72 hours of his team’s humiliating defeat to Bayern Munich last week, Bartomeu had: told his sporting director to fire his coach; fired his sporting director; announced a list of players he considered the integral cornerstones of the club’s future; and, by omission, effectively revealed that everyone else was available for sale.


    If all of that was designed to project an image of control, though, it fell short. Barcelona’s new coach, Ronald Koeman, has a wealth of experience, but there is little in his managerial career to suggest he would have been given this chance if he were not a former Barcelona player. His appointment smacked of panic.




    So, too, did the very public revelation that Barcelona would listen to offers for at least half of its current squad, the likes of Gerard Piqué, Luis Suárez and Jordi Alba included. That Barcelona needs an overhaul is no great revelation. That the central problem with carrying it out will be freeing up space in the team — and on the wage bill — is blindingly obvious.


    The problem is there are only a handful of teams that can afford the salaries that the likes of Piqué and Suárez and the others command. Only a small portion of that handful would be likely to commit to those salaries when most of these players are approaching the twilight of their careers.




    So all Bartomeu’s announcement did was irritate several players he may not be able to offload, and guarantee that potential buyers feel empowered to take advantage of Barcelona’s desperation. It felt like the act of a man who needed to be seen to do something. Quite how, exactly, he plans to do it seems to remain open to question.

    Barca do not need a 30 year old MF, they already have enough of those. Don't forget they already have Pjanic coming in from Juventus. Wijnaldum is not going to Barcelona unless they are stupider than they have been. Mephis is going to want a high salary if he does leave Lyon and there are only a few teams that will offer that.

    de Jong grew up with Willem II and moved to Ajax when he was 18. Suarez has already stated he is staying with Barca. Ajax is not going to be spending much on transfers unless players leave, van der Sar and Overmars stated as much. They run a big risk as long as match day income is affected by COVID-19.
     
  8. Well, it's the same content as my post about the situation Koeman is stepping in.

    Bakker got to play 10 minutes, and Xavi Simons was on the bench today for PSG vs. Lens

    PSG had 7 starters missing because of COVID-19 and injuries. I was surprised that Bakker did not start the match. He did not do much of anything in the 10 minutes he was on the pitch. Wijndal is a better LB prospect. I think Ajax let him go because of his lack of speed.

    Van Dijk having just a stinker of a game even with his goal. Looks very lackadaisical out there

    He had no clue about how to defend against Leeds. I'm glad to see Bielsa in the EPL with a team that is playing full out attacking football. I think they will surprise a lot of clubs this season. They are now in contention to be by 2nd favorite club.

    Tweede hattrick op rij van Roord bij Arsenal

    Jill Roord heeft ook in de tweede competitiewedstrijd van het seizoen een hattrick gemaakt voor Arsenal. De vrouwen uit Londen wonnen met 9-1 bij West Ham United. Roord scoorde vorige week ook al drie keer bij de seizoensstart tegen Reading (6-1).

    Forget Virgil... :D how about that Leeds CB Pascal Struijk? Defended like a rock, shut down Firmino allright. Only 21 years old. Born in Belgium, but had represented Oranje U17. Started with ADO, also played for Ajax.

  21. Speed is overrated.
    Speed is for those running behind the facts.
    Smart players are at the right place in the right time.

    LOL, I don't think Dest will make much of a difference for Bayern if he transfers. They are leading Schalke 8-0 near the end of the match!:eek:
