    Don't think it necessarily has to be a bad thing they are missing Neymar. He is too dominant in that team, everything goes through him at the detriment of other quality players and he also does more harm than good for the team spirit I think.

    Yeah must be terrible having Neymar in the team. Hope we don't go for this selfish bastard when PSG get rid of .

    I saw Le Classique yesterday, was a nice game to watch, much better than your average PL game where most of the teams just Park the bus.

    Neymar’s selfishness is a hindrance. His absence can be a blessing in disguise for PSG. Mbappe’s injury though could be a problem.

    A 433 with
    Meunier Silva Kimpembe Kurzawa
    Rabiot Motta Verratti
    Di Maria Cavani Draxler

    Or a 4231 with
    Meunier Silva Kimpembe Kurzawa
    Rabiot Verratti
    Di Maria Pastore Draxler

    ^ This team can still win against Real Madrid.

    Hearing murmurs that Favre and Nice may separate at the end of this season.

    Wolfsburg are interested.

    Should poach Cyprien from them. Great, modern midfielder, can do it all pretty much. Technically excellent, strong, quick, defensively aware, nose for goal, great free-kick taker. Scored the winner this weekend, on his ‘weaker’ foot even.

    That injury from last season really set him back, basically lost a season and a half. A bit like when Fekir was emerging and suffered an injury which kept him out for ages, had to reestablish himself all over again.

    Cyprien is a very unique player. His only weakness is the defensive side of his game. Don't get me wrong, there's a real willingness to work on his part he's just a bit erratic when it comes to it.

    Plea goes ballistic, scoring 4 and guiding Nice to victory.

    Have always liked him, very unique player. Not sure if he's looking to make a jump and if so how he'd adapt.

    Would be interested to hear how he's perceived in France @carlito'sway. Is he rated?

    Very good player...was on an upward trajectory until he got severely injured last season. If he continues to progress I am sure he will come into Deschamps radar, the problem though is that France is loaded with talent upfront.

    To be fair, he has been in spectacular form since back in L1. The dude looks like he is completely rejuvenated. I will be shocked if he not called back by Deschamps. There is not much competition behind Sidibe at LB.

    Thought I'd post this. Monaco is on a 14 undefeated streak. We get a nice little Fabinho goal at the 2nd minute mark of the video. Other goals from them came from Jovetic and Rony Lopes.

    @carlito'sway so what is new from the France league. Who are doing well and who should we be aiming for and who do you think we will actually aim for in the summer market?

    Hearing good things about this Mbappe kid. Wondering if a 35MM bid would get it done.

    Not much that we don't know or haven't mentioned already. We may be able to grab one or two full backs in France though if needed. The new Mendy at OL, Lala at Strasbourg and the two from Montpellier, Roussilion and Mukiele, are really impressive talents.
    I also mentioned Lecomte the Montpellier keeper as perhaps the best GK in Ligue 1. Besides that, the same suspects, Lemar, Fekir, Cyprien etc...

    I am sure Grimandi has none of those names in his notebook.

    Hows Lemar been doing since his injury? Will he be in the world cup squad? Will we be in for him in the summer?

    He is getting back in good form. He will definitely be in Russia with the French NT.

    French NT calls up for this week. Interesting list. If Ben Yedder plays well, Laca may be in trouble.

    Défenseurs : Lucas Digne (FC Barcelone), Lucas Hernandez (Atletico Madrid), Djibril Sidibé (Monaco), Presnel Kimpembe (PSG), Laurent Koscielny (Arsenal), Benjamin Pavard (Stuttgart), Samuel Umtiti (FC Barcelone), Raphaël Varane (Real Madrid).

    Milieux : Paul Pogba (Manchester United), Blaise Matuidi (Juventus Turin), Adrien Rabiot (PSG), Corentin Tolisso (Bayern Munich), N’Golo Kanté (Chelsea), Thomas Lemar (AS Monaco).

    Attaquants : Olivier Giroud (Arsenal), Antoine Griezmann (Atletico Madrid), Kylian Mbappé (PSG), Anthony Martial (Manchester United), Florian Thauvin (Marseille), Ousmane Dembélé (FC Barcelone), Wissam Ben Yedder (FC Séville).

    What do you think about the Neymar fuss, is it possible that he'll leave PSG this summer? It would be a big blow for PSG's brand, but it might be good for the team. Or is it just a fake drama to get a pay rise (just like Veratti does every season)? :rolleyes:
