Champions League 1/8: The MU future is faded, Real should be careful

Here are 3 things that can be concluded after the first round match in 1/8 Champions League.

1. MU future is faded

Was rated higher than the opponent with a strong force, destructive style, but MU suddenly fell 0-2 right at home in the Champions League first leg. The team performed a blurred face and allowed PSG to control 3 light lines on February 13. Obviously, this result arose from criticism from the world media.
Optimistic, this is not the end of Manchester United. The home team is still coming back to save the situation. However, the question that was asked “What does the Red Devil” take to fight against the representative of France? Not mentioning much, having to march to the courtyard of the “Prince’s Park” has become a big challenge for Solskjaer teachers and students.

Remarkably, MU after a humiliating defeat, lost more Pogba because of the red card, Martial and Lingard injured the situation. Meanwhile, the defending Ligue 1 champions, they may return Cavani back in the rematch. The army of Solskjaer can show strong power in the domestic tournament, only regret at the arena of the class named Champions League, the team suddenly fledgling and lacking the bravery of a giant. In the history of C1, there are still spectacular back-to-back displays, but it is clear that the current situation is too difficult for MU.

2. Real be careful with Ajax

With the current position of Real, despite not being able to keep the power of destruction, they are still much more appreciated than Ajax. The sublimation circuit in La Liga with the Copa del Rey also makes the white shirt army confidently decide on Johan Cruijff Arena.

Finally, “Los Blancos” is just as expected to win and holds the advantage of 2 away goals. However, this result does not mean that Solari teachers and students have an easy match. Ajax really makes the reigning European champions difficult. The way to attack the total force, to force the opponent from the Dutch representative many times overwhelmed the white vulture.

Statistics show that the Erik ten Hag troop is in no way inferior to the Spanish giant. Only regret in the second half, the stars fell down and let the opponent have the opportunity to finish the home team. Ajax lacks perhaps the bravery, the old fox and a little luck. In the second leg, if the performance of the face is as early as February 14, the Dutch representative has absolutely a reason to dream about the back-to-back curtain.

3. Tottenham: New Premier League hopes

It was not until the last minute that Tottenham could get a ticket to advance to the next round. Fun has not been long, Spurs have to pick up Dortmund in the 1/8 of the Champions League. After what was shown in the group stage, there was little hope for the north London representative in the European arena.
However, the morning of February 14 is a completely different Tottenham, the competition is full and brave. Dortmund is not an easy name, but Pochettinho’s teachers destroyed the opponent with the score 3-0. It can be said that Spurs has stepped one leg into the quarterfinals of C1. Not only that, the home team is also the first name in the Premier League to go on. From the ignored name, “Rooster” is now England’s new hope in Europe.

Football management game – The game is only for true fans!

Talking about football games, we can be divided into 2 very clear categories: Football games and football management games. If football games have very well-known representatives in the world such as PES, FIFA, then football management games often revolve around Football Manager or Top Eleven … They are all kinds of games that are sought after by football fans.
However, if you compare football games and football management games, which is the one that attracts the most gamers, you probably know the answer. Football management game, say no, is really different colors and “difficult” than football games!
This series was born long after the creation of PES or FIFA monuments. It does not aim to overthrow the unbeaten position of the other two “giants” that aim to direct the player to another experience. You will no longer play a player but be transformed into a coach.
Understand simple, your game screen will not only encapsulate in passing the ball, kicking, ball rolling… and control the players in the ball anymore. It includes much more “harmful brain” activity.

As a coach, the first thing you need to do is create the best team tactics for your players. Because each person is a personal character, the way they guide the team is different. Just look at the Vietnam team under Mr. Calisto’s time and when directed by Mr. Park Hang Seo. Not yet discussing the efficiency issue, but make sure that the two of them have very specific ways to start a football game.
Football management game is the same. You will need to understand each player, capture their strengths and weaknesses. Where should they stand? What is the mission for each person? Attack or defense? Right wing or left wing? A lot of problems that players need to think before signing up for a tournament or friendlies.

That is not to mention the search and recruitment of new, younger, more energetic and talented talents. Did you choose to sign contracts with superstars or cultivate the experience for potential rookies? The final decision is still on the player!

Juventus Intentionally Buy Two Others Big Stars of Real Madrid

Juventus still do not want to stop recruiting troops from Real Madrid when they are trying to buy Luka Modric and Isco.

Juventus are constantly preparing forces for the following season even though they are focused on winning the Champions League this year. With ownership in the Cristiano Ronaldo squad, Juventus has now become an attractive destination for stars and “Old Lady” is willing to take advantage of that to recruit recruits, though they are still mostly buy cheap sale expensive
Having almost reached an agreement to bring Aaron Ramsey midfielder from Arsenal this summer, Juventus continues to add people in the middle and aims to increase creativity. Paulo Dybala is just a player and Juventus wants more mutants on the attacking front, not just doing interceptors like Matuidi, Khedira, Pjanic, Emre Can or Bentancur.

Tuttosport newspaper recently said that it is difficult to buy Isco from Real Madrid but Juventus will still persevere, because they are very fond of the ability to make mutations from the Spanish midfielder’s passes. If Real Madrid demanded the transfer of Dybala to get Isco, Juventus would definitely refuse because it would completely fail to supplement their original force.

But besides Isco, Juventus also wants another Real player to be veteran midfielder Luka Modric. Modric after the 2018 World Cup made a reputation for Inter Milan, before changing his mind because of the promise of a raise. But with Real Madrid falling this season and only focusing on getting tickets to the Champions League, Juve is hoping to bring Modric to play at the Allianz Stadium.

If Isco is still under contract with Real Madrid until 2022, the case of Modric will be easier for Juventus when by 2020 he will be out of contract with “Los Blancos”, the 2019 summer news is the ideal time for Juventus to buy he is cheap, and is also the last chance for Real to sell Modric to earn some money.

If winning the signature of Modric, Juventus will surpass Inter Milan by the Croatian midfielder is the big goal that Inter has pursued more than 6 months ago. Modric’s 33-year-old is not so important to Juve when they will have a huge midfield force to turn around, not to mention the possibility that they will sell Khedira away from the club after this season.

Chelsea 2-0 Nottingham Forest: Thanks and goodbye, Cesc Fabregas!

Leading Chelsea into Stamford Bridge with the armband, Cesc Fabregas played the last match in the Blues before leaving for Monaco in France during the January 2019 winter transfer.

There was no place under the new coach Maurizio Sarri, but Chelsea was still grateful and prepared for the Spanish midfielder a nice and warm farewell, only regrettable when it soon became incomplete. only after half an hour of playing.
Fabregas missed the chance to clear the deadlock against first-rate Nottingham Forest with a missed penalty. It was a shot that was dominated by emotion rather than rational, when former Arsenal and Barcelona star hesitantly slowed down on the finish line, then was caught by goalkeeper Luke Steele and guessed in the right direction. clearance.

Fabregas was substituted when the Chelsea vs Nottingham Forest match left five minutes, in enthusiastic applause echoing across four Stamford Bridge stands. If anyone had a slight skepticism about the future that had been decided by the 32-year-old midfielder, his hesitant footsteps again set a clear and harsh answer.

This time it was no longer a blame, but no one was to blame, with tears of tears and goodbyes to Alvaro Morata, Eden Hazard and David Luiz. They will still meet again when the game is over, in the locker room afterwards, even naked bathing together, but this is football, its correctness.

If this is the last time the world has witnessed Fabregas playing in an English league, he must have left a foggy country a truly remarkable achievement. Only Ryan Giggs (162) surpassed Fabregas (111) in the ability to create, although the Spanish midfielder was only 31 years old and had experienced an extra three and a half years in Barcelona.

Of these, Fabregas contributed 18 assists in the opening season of Chelsea, nearly hitting Thierry Henry’s record (former Arsenal team-mate – new teacher in Monaco!) And helping the team crowned the 2014 Premier League champion. Two years later, 12 assists of former Arsenal and Barcelona star continue to help the Blues proclaim, despite the fact that the stadium has not been half the time of the season.

However, it is also the persistent issue of Fabregas throughout the past 18 months. Chelsea’s championship under Antonio Conte did not carry much of his mark, but then the West London team collapsed quickly in the next season when he reached the best condition and was regularly trusted.

The same situation took place in the first leg of the season 2015/16, when Fabregas appeared stable in the starting lineup and then sank with Chelsea in a horrific catastrophic crisis. Jose Mourinho was sacked and immediately left, while the Spanish midfielder with a depressed performance was suspected as a “black power” to lead the anti-team at Stamford Bridge.

Mbappe – The Most Valuable Players in the World

According to the latest research, striker Kylian Mbappe is the world’s most valuable player with £ 190 million. Notably, Cristiano Ronaldo didn’t even make it into the top 10.
CIES analyst has announced the list of the most valuable stars in the world today. The value of these players is based on performance in performances, age, contract duration and many other factors.
After shining with the French team in World Cup this summer, striker Kylian Mbappe overcame Tottenham star Harry Kane to become the world’s most expensive player.

Specifically, the value of Mbappe was dropped to around 189.3 million pounds. Meanwhile, the World Cup winner, Harry Kane, cost about £ 172.5 million.
This price is enough for the English striker to top Neymar, who is worth £ 172.2 million. But in fact, the Brazilian star is still the most expensive player in the world after joining PSG in 2016 for £ 198 million.
Notably, in the top 10 list of CIES there is no name of Cristiano Ronaldo. The Portuguese turned 34 and was valued at no more than the £ 100 million Juventus spent on buying him last summer.
Meanwhile, Lionel Messi, 31, is still on the list but has dropped to sixth place with an estimated value of £ 149.2 million.
Liverpool star Mohamed Salah came in fourth place with a value of £ 151.2 million. The last player in the top 5 is Philippe Coutinho with a value of £ 149.8 million – just a little higher than Messi.
City’s Raheem Sterling is worth no less than Messi. The English player is valued at £ 143.9 million.
Romelu Lukaku should feel lucky to remain on this list despite his poor form at Man United last time. The Belgian has not scored for Man United since September but still costs £ 143.7 million.
The Tottenham player, Dele Alli, is the only midfielder to be in the top 10. His value falls to £ 142.9 million. The reason Alli had such a high price was because his contract had a deadline until 2024.
Antoine Griezmann is the last name in the top 10 with a value of £ 137.9 million. He and Mbappe are important factors that brought France to the 2018 World Cup championship.

Coach And The Tottenham Players Praised Messi

Coach Mauricio Pochettino and his pupils are bowed, the talent of Lionel Messi after Tottenham 2-4 defeat to Barca in the Champions League group stage.
With Barcelona’s excellent performance at Lionel Messi, Ivan Rakitic and Philippe Coutinho beat the hosts 4-2. With this result, Barca take the lead in Group B with 6 points after two rounds. Next is Inter Milan (6 points but low), Tottenham and PSV (0 points).

Speaking about the match this morning, coach Mauricio Pochettino of Tottenham said: “This is a very difficult game. When you get the goal right after 2 minutes, you will have to change the calculation. The early defeat was the biggest reason we had to lose. Apparently between Tottenham and Barca there is still a gap. ”

“I have to send greetings to them. Barca played better and deserved to win. Anyway, I still feel proud of my students, they have been playing to the last moments. Tottenham will have to make more efforts in the next match.

“Messi is a great player. Messi makes a difference, he is the kind of player that any team is desperate to get. ”

Meanwhile, right-back Kieran Trippier praised Messi for his impressive performance at Wembley with a brace: “Messi is excellent, with Messi having the ball, it’s hard to get the ball off his feet. So fast and clever, we were really powerless to prevent him from scoring, but the fact is that Barca played better and they deserved to win. ”
In addition, Trippier also shared the mistake of goalkeeper Lloris out of the goal to stop Alba. Then, the Spanish defender paid back for Coutinho ice to hit the empty net right at 2 minutes: “As a goalkeeper, you have to make decisions quickly. Sometimes the decision can be right or wrong, it is important that you make the courage to make your own choices. I think Lloris is not wrong when it comes to ice, but obviously Barca took advantage of the opportunity too well.”

Barça boss Ernesto Valverde said: “After some bad results, the most important thing is that we are back in the game.” The team’s reaction was impressive. It was a tough game and Tottenham were not comfortable. We had some problems but everything was fine to settle down “.

Dobrovolski Igor Ivanovich: The Only Player in the Soviet Union Champions League

Dobrovolski Igor Ivanovich came to football very early. He was educated at TAFIOLOL (CH Moldovan), a school of football talents in his teens.

An agile player, technically, good in both midfield and striker positions. At the age of 17 (1984), Dobrovolski was played in the main squad of Zimbru (one of the famous clubs, for many years Moldovan champions). After a season here, his reputation has spread throughout the Soviet Union. Strong clubs such as Spartak Moscow, Dinamo Kiev … have all the way to get him. But Dobrovolski decided to join Dinamo Moscow (1986-1990). With good cleft and good shooting skills, Dobrovolski was given the responsibility of leading the team’s play. Even in his first season, he helped Dinamo Moscow to win the Soviet Union Silver Cup (the last time the club won the Silver Cup in 1970). He was also the most outstanding player in Soviet football ever and was awarded the Soviet Union Player of the Year (23 years).
In 1990, Dobrovolski moved to Deportivo (Spain) to confirm himself and look for other big names. Dobrovolski is very strict with himself and often follows the hunch. A year later he left Deportivo to join Servette (Switzerland, 91/92) and then to Genoa (Italy, 1992). In the fall of 1992, Dobrovolski pulled off his shirt with the call of Olympic Marseille, one of the most celebrated French and European clubs of his time, with the hunch that he would win a Champions League title. . And fate smiled at him! Dobrovolski won the double: Champions League and French league 92/93 season.
In the autumn of 93/94, Dobrovolski returned to Dinamo Moscow and one year later came to Spain for Atletico Madrid (94/95) and Fortuna Dusseldorf (Germany, 1996-1999).
Dobrovolski was one of the few young players to get the lead in the Soviet Union. At the age of 19 (1986), he made his first appearance for the England national team. During the 12 years (1986-1998) devoted to the Soviet team and the Russian team, Dobrovolski had 18 goals in 60 appearances. In the victory of the Soviet Union in the 1988 Olympic Games against Brazil, Dobrovolski’s first goal was to score 2-1.
4 times Dobrovolski was listed in the list of 33 best players in Soviet and Russian football history.

What Does the Future Hold for Kylian Mbappe?

Kylian Mbappe might be too young to purchase a beer in the United States, but he’s already a World Cup winner with a few domestic cups at home as well. The France forward is undoubtably the most talked about football player in the world and is already considered one of the Top 5 players in the world. He managed to achieve all of this before he turned 20 which is quite impressive to say the least.

On 2 December 2018, Mbappe will celebrate he’s third year of professional football where he initially walked onto the field at the age of 16 when AS Monaco played against Caen. He entered the game during the 88th minute and replaced Fabio Coentrao, becoming the youngest first-team player for the club and breaking the record in the process that was held by Thierry Henry two decades ago.

Kylian Mbappe and the Next Three Years

Since he made his debut three years ago, a lot has occurred for the young superstar. The last three years have been nothing short of spectacular, but the most important time for Mbappe is not the three years that past, but the three years that is still to come. The way he emerged on the scene was phenomenal. However, his ability to reach new heights, keep improving, and establish himself as one of the greats will certainly be a more difficult challenge.

There’s no doubt that Mbappe will get better. There is still loads of room for improvement, especially when it comes to finishing. He’s decision making could be better as well as his work ethic and while he improves, he will also learn how to deal with expectations and pressure better. Within the next three years, fans can expect to see him hold down the No. 9 position more permanently. He is enjoying playing on the wing for both Paris Saint-Germain and France at the moment, but there’s no denying that he’s future is leaning more towards a centre-forward. This is where Mbappe is the best as he can utilise his skill and qualities in this roll far better.

How Kylian Mbappe Can Improve

During the 2018 season, as well as late last season, Mbappe showed some complacency and arrogance. However, in the years to come, Mbappe will need to be more disciplined. He needs to be the best role model he can possibly be. There’s no more room to arrive late for meetings and he cannot continue with a nonchalant attitude going forward. There’s also no more room for his condescending behaviour either. Thankfully, he’s friends and family can keep him grounded as he continues to grow in popularity around the world.

According to UK bookmakers, a lot can change for the club in the next three years. Mbappe is currently the heart and soul of PSG and is a valuable asset for the club and they will undoubtably want to keep him for as long as possible. However, will Mbappe be around at PSG for longer than three years?

Jose Mourinho Takes Centre Stage After Chelsea – Man Utd Draw

Jose Mourinho is considered a lightning rod, for bad or good. Even when it’s not his fault, he usually ends up being in the spotlight, this time around at the hands of Marco Ianni after the chaotic and dramatic 2-2 draw against Chelsea on Saturday at Stamford Bridge.

Who is Marco Ianni?


This is probably a question that Jose Mourinho uttered prior to the start of the game on Saturday afternoon. However, he is well aware of who Marco Ianni is now after the Italian provoked the former manager of Chelsea with an enthusiastic celebration following Ross Barkley’s equaliser on the 96th minute.

The official title for Ianni is the second assistant to Maurizio Sarri, Chelsea’s head coach. However, he will now always be remembered as the guy who goaded Jose Mourinho, leading the Manchester United manager to chase him down the tunnel after the game was done and dusted. It was already quite dramatic after Barkley scored the late goal, but while Mourinho was mostly blameless during the game, it’s valid to ask if Ianni would have reacted the same if Pep Guardiola or Jurgen Klopp was in the position as opposed to Mourinho.

Jose Mourinho


This is, unfortunately, the reality that Jose Mourinho needs to accept. Due to his history and own track record of antagonising opponents, Mourinho now finds himself facing the same kind of behaviour that he has been guilty of in the past. No one will ever forget how Mourinho poked Tito Vilanova straight in the eye or when he sprinted down the touchline at Old Trafford to celebrate the last minute equaliser of Porto at Man Utd. After accepting the post-match apology from Ianni, Mourinho admitted that he can’t hold a grudge against the Italian given his own actions in the past.

“I’m definitely not annoyed with anything that took place,” Jose Mourinho stated. “Sarri was the first to state that he will resolve it after what occurred with his assistant.”
“Sarri’s assistant already approached me and apologised for what happened, and I told him to just forget it. There’s a lot of mistakes I made in the past, especially when I was his age.”

The Chelsea manager admitted that Jose Mourinho was wronged and displayed far more diplomacy than the previous Chelsea manager, Antonio Conte.

“Once the match was over, I spoke to Mourinho and instantly realised that we were to blame for what occurred,” Sarri stated. “I immediately spoke to my second assistant and requested that he goes an apologise to Mourinho for his actions. Now everything is resolved.”

However, what occurred thereafter was classic Jose Mourinho. Chelsea fans managed to taunt the former manager by chanting ‘F— off Jose Mourinho!’ from the main stands. Jose Mourinho simply replied by showing three fingers to the Chelsea crowd. The three fingers basically indicated the 3 Premier League titles that Jose Mourinho managed to win as the manager of the club.

Tottenham’s Targets Were Unaffordable During Summer Window

Mauricio Pochettino recently admitted that he hoped to improve on his squad during the summer, but stated that Tottenham’s top targets were unfortunately unaffordable and it would have been pointless to sign players that they didn’t really need.

Daniel Levy, the chairman, stated Tottenham’s lack of transfer activity does not relate to the rising cost of the brand-new stadium, and Mauricio Pochettino confirms that there was indeed money to be spent, but certainly not enough to bring players in that would have a significant impact.

Mauricio Pochettino commented stating, “You fully understand the market and know that you’re going to compete with various football clubs. Perhaps you have the money. But will it be enough? Let’s assume I have $1, and you have $10, the next club has $100, and the club after that has $1,000. I obviously have the money to spend, but the main question is, will it be enough?

Pochettino continued by adding, “If you are interested in signing Player X and you request him and find out that you need to pay $100 million, you realise that you have money but certainly not enough to sign what we want or what we need. Thereafter, you will need to move on and suddenly realise that the player you are looking for is not on the market.”

Pochettino also commened on signing new players adding, “We attempted to sign a few players, but unfortunately we didn’t achieve what we wanted or needed. One thing is extremely clear; all the managers and coaching staff constantly want to improve their squad by signing and adding players from the football academy. We obviously want to do the same at Tottenham as football is essentially dynamic.”

Pochettino stated that you, “You need to come up with something fresh and exciting every six months. However, if you are unable to sign who you want or need, and simply sign players to make everyone happy, it’s not common sense. We clearly indicated that we are not populists or politicians this summer. It’s extremely easy to tell everyone we are going to sign two new players to make people happy. However, if we don’t require the players who are available, why on earth would we sign them?”

Tottenham Hotspur in October

There’s no denying that October has been a difficult month for Tottenham in the last few seasons. They encountered a 4-match winless streak during the 2015/16 season and a 7-match winless streak during the 2016/17 season in October. Last year, they suffered back-to-back defeats against Manchester United and West Ham towards the end of October.

However, Pochettino has recently said that this is the most difficult season for Tottenham due to the fact that key figures made a late return after the World Cup. However, he hopes that the recent challenges his star players have been facing will assist them in improving their fortunes during this stage of the tournament.

“There’s no denying that we struggled in previous seasons when it comes to October. However, with all the pre-season circumstances, things might have changed”,Pochettino stated.
