I'm very upset with the passivity of other German clubs with Bayern they use and abuse them.. in Portugal is impossible for Porto to sell the best players to Benfica and vice versa....


cdg6921

Will anything other than winning the WC be a failure for France? It's baffling how a player like Pavard starts for them but other than that, most players are top 3-5 itw in their position.


thrillofdarkness

who other than benzema, mbappe and kante is top 3-5 itw in that team?


cdg6921

Kimpembe. Ok not most players lol. Maybe Theo given his current form.


[deleted]

Liverpool are full of bang average players (not all of them) who somehow have managed to win the trophies they did and maintained their form for 4+ seasons now. On paper they're overachievers, individually their players don't hold a candle to some of the champions league winning squads of the past nor premier league winning teams of the past. I still cannot believe a team of Origi, Milner, Henderson, Shaqiri, Robertson, TAA managed to do that to Barca and go on and win it all.


LindseyNeagle

Having the best manager in the world helps.


cdg6921

That's what a good system does to you.


Offenser101

the meltdown if arsenal dont get their game postponed

tiorzol

Scored 2 goals at the Amex. Thought that would've gone better.


theDopedNinja

Who do you think Martinelli will end up representing? Honestly suprised he hasn't been called up yet


Any-Quarter-9474

Needs to do more, but it’s disappointing he hasn’t been chosen over Rodrygo. Martinelli’s finishing is very good, if he can just improve his positioning a bit, he’ll end up representing 1 day.


wildinout2233

He already picked Brasil over Italy


hungaryisinasia

Arsenal forever and ever


Itchy-Face791

Brazil are loaded with wingers tbf


AintNoLayUps

Himself in 4 years when he wins his first Ballon d’Or.


_cumblast_

Do you reckon there is a Serie A tax on strikers atm? They have a higher goals average than the Bundesliga iirc. Just had this convo about Vlahovic and wonder whether 70m isn't a relatively big risk.


astral34

Talking about a Serie A tax or any tax in general is silly. Most transfers and players are completely different from one another, lots of extra field characteristics that can influence the result


estoyloca43

I’ve been skeptical of Serie A strikers ever since Immobile. The scar cuts too deep


Any-Quarter-9474

Bundesliga is widely different to any other league.


estoyloca43

I mean no? Batshuayi and Alcácer did not have any problem.


Any-Quarter-9474

Werner and Havertz have flopped, Immobile flopped, Haller flopped. There’s many players who went to other leagues and flopped. It may be so that Alcacer and Batshuayi enjoyed the Bundesliga. Your league is still quite different from others. And don’t take that as something bad, I really enjoy the Bundesliga.


estoyloca43

I didn’t take any offense, just disputing your claim. Aubameyang didn’t flop. Dzeko didn’t flop. Immobile didn’t do too well on loan at Sevilla either. You can always find examples to support either argument


Gamer_Abhi

Where are the goats sirsteven and Spec? I prefer them so much more than our current lot


ComprehensiveClick35

Spectario perma banned and sirstevenslad was on an alt about 2 weeks ago with a bayern flair and deleted the account when I asked if it was him


Itchy-Face791

Spectario has been perma banned and i dont know what's happened to Stevenslad . He just dissapeared , he probably got perma banned too


_SergioAguero_

Thought Spec had just deleted his account, this is wonderful news


AintNoLayUps

Undeserved ban. He wasn’t a troll, he argued his opinions even if they were shit etc. He really contributed to the shitshow that is arsocca daily discussion


Itchy-Face791

The comment that got him banned was not outrageous at all He just crtitisized a player and then they perma banned him , that's some bullshit


Elemayowe

The way he worded it was definitely bait and it was more an accumulation of stuff than that comment itself, from what I saw anyway


_SergioAguero_

He annoyed the fuck out of me, not upset he's gone.


Gamer_Abhi

You've only been here for a month though


Itchy-Face791

He deleted his account because he got perma banned lol He even made a whole post on his account on why he got banned and tagged a few dd regulars and said goodbye


_SergioAguero_

That's strange behaviour but fits perfectly with how he usually was on here.


Gamer_Abhi

Is it wrong to envision Prime Pato with the current Brazillian set of attackers? It just seems illegal


Gamer_Abhi

never forget pato was at Chelsea


wildinout2233

I went to two Orlando City games this past season and he’s washed, nowhere close to where he used to be


Gamer_Abhi

Ah that's a shame.


los_blanco_14

>nowhere close to where he used to be Thats why he is in Orlando


wildinout2233

I thought he would have some sort of resurgence coming here, but I was mistaken


AintNoLayUps

Injuries ruined him


tyetforsyth

and Falcao, and Veron


Ineedtobecareful

And higuain


Harrry-Otter

Don’t forget Hernan Crespo


Gamer_Abhi

And Falcao


_cumblast_

Pato retired after he left Milan in my book


Gamer_Abhi

Same with Balo too


GratinDeRavioles

Neymar vs Atalanta, when high pressing faces one of the best tekkers in football. Almost doubled most dribbles ever in CL with 14. Coincidentally the first game where his finishing started looking comically bad, owes a favor to Choupo on that run. And Mbappe for their SF run the following year. Massive baller but that's been a huge issue as of late.


i_love_batsoup

People blame Poch but PSG has been the same since then. I remember Neymar dropping in between the CBs at times to get the ball and do something. That team has no chemistry man. Adding Messi just aggravated it


Itchy-Face791

Their midfield is actually non existant


i_love_batsoup

We can help them with a 50m frenchman and a goal scoring english mf 👍


redditorsEWW

I really would like to see what Flick could do with this France team attacking wise Coman, Griezmann, Benzema and Mbappe as attacking options, they’d score 4 every game in the world cup


GratinDeRavioles

Deschamps used that front 4 against Kazakhstan Coman was wingback. Had a brilliant game. Theo Hernandez on the other side, Griezmann 10 and Benzema Mbappe front 2. 8-0


SVWerder46

It was Kazakhstan


GratinDeRavioles

Yes i said so


redditorsEWW

Martial scores 4 against Kazakstan


GratinDeRavioles

No, Mbappe and Lewy do


TheGrandLeveler

Is Saka overrated underrated or fairly rated? Lately I see his name mentioned a lot, his stats are good but not extraordinary. Is it his defensive contribution that raises his rating or something else?


Blazien49

As someone who's watched every single minute of his, he's underrated.


Any-Quarter-9474

People’ll realise how good Saka is in 1-2 years. I’ve had this discussion multiple times. One of the biggest blessings since Fabregas.


los_blanco_14

English pl plauers can never be underrated thats for sure. They might be fairly rated or overrated, never underrated.


TheGrandLeveler

Demarai Gray, McNeil, Bowen, Marcus Edwards, Tyrick Mitchell, Stephy Mavididi, Dominic Solanke, John Swift, Ademola Lookman are all underrated imo


los_blanco_14

Solanke definitely isnt underrated and i said PL plauers and not premiership.


Philbert_1302

>i said PL plauers and not premiership That's just what the PL used to be called back in the day lol, it's the same thing. You're thinking of the championship.


los_blanco_14

My bad then.


QGunners22

Fairly rated right now, but before the last few months he was extremely underrated. I mean for gods sake, most people before were saying Greenwood was better than him 💀💀. Imo if you’re only 20 years old and the best player in a team challenging top 4, you deserve to be highly rated.


Gamer_Abhi

Greenwood had good output last year right? So that isn't bad in hindsight


Elemayowe

Greenwood is hard to judge atm because our entire team is playing like dogshit right now. No one is really standing out except for De Gea and possibly McTominay (which shows the state of our midfield).


Quab775

Saka I would say is a leader in our attack he always has 3 or 4 players around him and still has impact . world class player


_SergioAguero_

He's not world class.


Gamer_Abhi

world class?


Moo-Lan

Overrated. 5 goals and 3 assists last season being hailed as the saviour of English football. Arsenal fans always do this though, this season for example look at Ben White and Ramsdale. Decent players performing at a decent level - but the 2 of them cost 80mil so this should be expected really. Yet they are being talked about by Arsenal fans as if they're the signings of the season, despite not really doing much to deserve it


Quab775

He's in double figures rn


Gamer_Abhi

Not seen anyone call him that. > 5 goals and 3 assists last season we're talking about THIS season though.


Moo-Lan

They guy above me literally just called him world class lol. Who said anything about this season specifically? He has been talked about like this by Arsenal fans for over a year. Recently hes hit a bit of form and his numbers for this season reflect that, but this is a relatively new thing and hes never managed to sustain it before. Promising talent but no more than that


Gamer_Abhi

>They guy above me literally just called him world class haha yeah i saw that Tbh fans of a team always tend to overrate their homegrown. I was talking about the general consensus.


Gamer_Abhi

fairly rated. Has 10 G+A at 21 and brings a lot defensively too.


arseking15

Hes breaking out big time in the last 2 months. Getting stronger, faster, more fit, more consistent. Thats why his name has come up alot recently


shxxxdy

We need to speak more about Real Betis tax. Those demons managed to make Ceballos, Emerson, Firpo, Lo Celso look like top level players


Fati25

Emerson was never a top level player. This was obvious to me, he doesn't have the technical ability at all


Gamer_Abhi

Ceballos was always good. He was our best Spanish prospect (one of the best atleast). Emerson has had an okay start, considering he had no preseason and playing Conte's way is quite tough. Firpo has been quite bad, looks very short of confidence. Lo Celso I just don't know.


esqueesque1

Fekir plays like prime R9 with them


Gamer_Abhi

In FIFA aswell


Sp0okyScarySkeleton-

Best club in spain has that effect on players


el_walou

Prime Diego Costa was legend level. Shame it didn’t last


ComprehensiveClick35

Today is the day the PL tell assna to stop crying and get on with the game suiiii


i_love_batsoup

inshallah


_SergioAguero_

It's definitely being postponed


ComprehensiveClick35

Nah Daniel levy will find a reason it's all good


Ineedtobecareful

Reminder that spurs crashed out of the group stage of the 3rd tier European competition despite being one of the favourites on paper and had to use Harry Kane to bail them out in almost every game they played.


a_magic_wizard

Cheers, I don't think about you at all.


Moo-Lan

Well if Rennes had agreed to an alternative date for the fixture to be played (albeit with no benefit to themselves) then this may not have been the case. Also, considering our 'second team' struggled to put 1 past Morecambe, is it that much of a surprise they lost out to Rennes and Vitesse? And to top it all off, anyone who watched Nunoball week in week out could tell you what a shambles it all was. Awful football, no tactics, players not giving a shit - thank God he got sacked when he did


_SergioAguero_

They hardly crashed out, not like they actually played and lost to get knocked out.


[deleted]

They weren't likely to beat Rennes anyway.


_SergioAguero_

Crystal Palace weren't likely to beat Man City but here we are


Gamer_Abhi

since when did reddit bring in automated names, like Xbox gametags? See a whole lot of them nowadays


pagalpun

Otoh it's a good identifier on who to avoid since people using those usernames are usually troll/alt accounts


smthofascientist

When you sign up for reddit, it suggests you a list of generic usernames which are usually two words seperated by an underscore with some random numbers at the end


Gamer_Abhi

Yeah, but I don't remember them suggestions showing up until recently


smthofascientist

Idk, I'm new here

Boring football separated by 1 goal and a referee incident?

Think SMS looks old for 27? take a look at his brother, Vanja, 3 years younger


facsnahmLovesQiluk

Both children when compared with Rúben Neves. Father of 3 and looks like 40 at 24 years old.


Gamer_Abhi

He looks quite handsome tbf


redditorsEWW

He has that Müller vibe where he’s looked 30 since he was 20

Oh God...I went through the thread and there is so much talk about Neymar and Bayern and Lewa... Why do people feel the need to keep fighting always...just appreciate these players when you get the chance to watch them

https://twitter.com/josepintoj/status/1482102835441405952?t=cwt4RMxkVKVe8uDzGH2zZA&s=19 Whole state of Madrid used to celebrate loss against Barca when they had managers like Ancelotti and Mourinho, there used to be covers on Marca because they didn't get embarrassed like they usually do😭


[deleted]

“If we play well and don’t win then I’m just content. So, today I’m content. We tried everything we could from the first to last minute. I think we lacked some quality in the final 30 metres, but I can’t be angry. These matches can happen. There were many positive aspects, with the result the only thing that wasn’t positive.” -Ancelotti

Wtf, posts like [this](https://www.reddit.com/r/soccer/comments/s4dj0r/fresh_professional_mls_contract_for_this_14_year/?utm_medium=android_app&utm_source=share) should not be allowed. The title is obviously leading and there are so many comments that are lowkey racist


redditorsEWW

Doesn’t look that old in the picture with the other teammates, some people just hit puberty early


LurkingINFJ

PSGscademy had to dig up the guy's 2017 pic and he definitely looks younger, but people are still discussing his age smh


redditorsEWW

They did the same with Moukoko, even though he looks exactly how old he is


Gamer_Abhi

It'll get deleted once mods wake up


LurkingINFJ

Yeah, hopefully. I am just shocked by the number of downvotes that sane comments have in that thread


_SergioAguero_

Are you suggesting that the mods care about racism? Because they won't


LurkingINFJ

They don't? Bantering is fine, but this shit crosses the line


_SergioAguero_

They'll occasionally remove comments but unless you straight up drop the n word they won't even temp ban.


LurkingINFJ

And people are permabanned on DD for relatively harmless comments. The hypocrisy...


_SergioAguero_

I got permabanned when I first commented in here because my account was new lol. Don't know how all the trolls in here get away with it tbh


hungaryisinasia

Yeah they ban anyone they suspect of being an alt even with no proof


Ball_Knowledge

you guys actually tax players based on leagues i thought it was a joke??


Itchy-Face791

Only Bundesliga


ComprehensiveClick35

Nah la liga too you made lo celso look good


los_blanco_14

You lot made coutinho and hazard look world class. Pl deserves to be banned for those crimes alone.

It shows how wank Spurs are mate. Imagine going out in the ECL group stage lmao

Ask nuno

Coutinho, Hazard flopped in La Liga and were tearing up in England, looks to me that the PL is the wank league 🤔


Itchy-Face791

Lo Celso looks good for everyone except Spurs He even plays well for Argentina lol


M33RHARIS

It’s not that he’s not good, he is injured 90% of the time. Everytime he comes back from international break he picks up an injury that lasts 1-2 and is conveniently fit enough by the time next one rolls around.


ComprehensiveClick35

I think that just shows the quality of football everywhere else


Old_Maximum_6624

I'm pretty sure there was even stat for it, bundesliga was almost 50 percent


redditorsEWW

Really excited to see Musiala play on the wing instead of in the midfield pivot, he is a joy to watch


esqueesque1

Is he pacey? I know he's skillful and technical, does he have elite pace?


redditorsEWW

He’s pretty fast but not insanely fast Kinda like Havertz I guess


esqueesque1

Oh looks like a match to tune in


rho_93

He's going to have so much more freedom to work his magic


Jano002

When will Davies be able to play again, what are your guesses?


pagalpun

'Atleast a few weeks' usually means 6 weeks minimum i think


Itchy-Face791

6 months


Venky710

he should take his time and heal completely , dont want him to suffer long term because of this


Fati25

It's actually really scary, I saw somebody say he could be out best case scenario in 3-6 months. I can't make any guesses myself but I hope he is back soon he is a fantastic player.


Jano002

Yes, Google also says that even mild heart inflammation requires a very long break from all exercise. These injuries suck most for athletes as his muscles will regress a lot in that time


Sp0okyScarySkeleton-

I've heard best case scenario is 3-4 weeks


Fati25

The person that I saw say it said they think that is complete nonsense, they said in even the most mild cases of myocarditis it's 3-6 months at best I'm not sure who to believe because I'm not a doctor but I'm sure Bayern will inform us in the coming weeks.

Expected_Toulouse_

What would be a good “quiz question” series for a soccer podcast? Former players comes to mind but anything else


Harrry-Otter

“Who had the most” is often a good one. Find two players and set the question who had the most caps/goals/appearances/Red cards. Best if you can find a surprising one. Tim Howard kept more clean sheets than Peter Schmeichel.


Expected_Toulouse_

That I didn’t expect to find out!


bufed

Ask for the top 10 players in the world. As we all know there's an objectively correct list and if they differ from it throw them out.


pagalpun

Guess the player using the clubs they played for in chronological order For eg some easy ones (loans not counted)- Sporting-United-Madrid-Juventus-United (>!Ronaldo!<) Arsenal-Wolfsburg-Nottingham Forest-Rosenborg-Copenhagen(>!Bendtner!<) Padova-Juventus-Sydney FC-Delhi Dynamos (>!Del Piero!<)

Expected_Toulouse_

Gamer_Abhi

That'd be quite obvious though, wouldn't it?


i_love_batsoup

On second thoughts, yes.

I disagree, for the past 3 years he was injury prone and inconsistent and he was only at his best for maybe only the champions league group stage in 2020/21 season.

So what happened on the Adeyemi saga. Havent heard anything since the reports/runours about him rejecting barca for Dortmund came up

No progress between us and Salzburg but Adeyemi just dropped an interview where he said he was a Bayern fan as a kid. He said he was a Dortmund fan in 2019
