Young Talents


#41

Proud to say that this is probably the first thing I’ve actually seen before you posted. :sunglasses:


#42

Portuguese press including O Jogo are convinced we’re seriously interested in Porto’s young 9 Andre Silva.

Porto & Benfica (Guedes) are the two clubs in Portugal our reps regularly attend games of.


#43

He’s basically a poacher a la Falcao though, no?

I have a hard time seeing Wenger signing a player like that. Especially if he costs more than the say £20-25m that Eduardo’s fee would correspond to in today’s market.


#44

How accurate is this?

Over to our resident mediapunta expert @AbouCuellar


#45

Can’t say for sure but from what I’ve read he’s a bit more than just a poacher.


#46

lol guys, mediapunta is just #10 really, though it’s a preferable term because #10 can mean a lot of things including a sort of 2nd striker like Dybala, which isn’t really too comparable to the role Mesut plays, who is a pure mediapunta. But yeah when I say mediapunta just understand #10, anyways I thought it was a term used a lot even with english fans hence why I used it here.


#47

I can honestly say I have literally never heard an English person use the phrase mediapunta. I’d never heard of it till I read it in one of your posts.

I know what it means though, it’s just affectionate ribbing mate :+1:


#48

Haha in retrospect I think I thought it was okay to use here because I read an article on ESPNFC by an English columnist using the term lots, but it might’ve been Sid Lowe or Graham Hunter. :grimacing:


#49

A young Portuguese box striker playing for Porto and represented by Mendes?

He seems destined to end up with Mourinho at United once the Zlatan experiment runs its course.


#50

Those football hipsters on twitter and the realm of social media and in normal media are usually using those kind of terms… smh.


#51

Not getting the same amount of game time as he did last season but Koziello remains one of the biggest talents in France.

#52

@A.F who’s this then?


#53

Over 90 scouts at his last match according to SPORT, lol. Barça and Madrid competing for him amongst others. Comparisons with Ibrahimovic although I watched a youtube video of him and it’s pretty crazy how quick and technical he is for his size. Puts Sanogo to shame sad to say. :anguished:


#54

You could probably put Sanogo to shame though, ask him for some of his wages and take his place!


#55

Honestly, I don’t know. :smiley:

I’m really the wrong person to ask.


#56

Fixed.


#57

Anyone know?


#58

I read about our interest on another Marseille talent: Maxime Lopez.


#59

I’d rather we go for Dolberg than some Swedish prick


#60

Probably another youngster. Nothing to get excited about really.
