Should Valverde be sacked?

For the second consecutive season, Valverde has won the La Liga two consecutive years, something Enrique failed to win in his final season. He also had an improved CL season compared to last year but unfortunately he has players with the wrong mentality. His defence aren’t good enough, against United they made a lot of mistakes and when they are pressured against Liverpool we saw what happened: the defence made 3 errors to gift Liverpool goals. He needs a transfer window to fix the problems and then maybe Barcelona will carry on their domestic dominance and advance further into Europe

If he is to be sacked then Barca need to do it sooner rather than later. The longer you wait before sacking him is less time the new manager gets in the transfer window and potentially even some of the season wasted. I personally think Valverde should stick around. He has continued Barca's dominance in La Liga, and I don't think their european woes are really his fault. As we have seen many times before Barcelona chocking when they get deep into the Champions League.

Well I personally don’t see the problem but from what I have seen majority the Barcelona fans seem to hate him and want him to be sacked. To me I don’t think he did awful but if Barcelona fans, who have watched them all season don’t think he should stay then maybe they should consider sacking him. At this rate I don’t think they will and I guess we’ll see how this transfer window changes things.

how is VVD not there, a top contender for the Ballon d'Or, the best player in the Premier League this past season, 

Now having the top 3 being all real Madrid defenders is foolish they conceded 46 goals this season 17 more than Atletico, 10 more than Barca, tied for only the 7th best defence in the league. they conceded 10 goals in the champions league in only 7 games so i think this list as a whole needs to be re done

This isn't based on who had the best season, this is based on who I believe are the most talented. I don't think 1 bad season can define a massive loss of talent. And besides I don't think the 3 I named are necessarily to blame for it. They were all excellent for national teams and if you look at Real a lot of goals they concede come from Carvahal's position, hence why Zidane has bought Militao. All 3 of the Real defenders made more tackles per game. Now of course I am not just basing a list of that but it shows that they had more pressure to deal with because the midfield let so many attacks through. They also showed their lethalness attacking, as all 3 put in more crosses and through balls than VVD. Of course stats don't really help, as Real and Liverpool both have very different styles, but VVD having 1 good season doesn't compare to those 3 spending a decade at the best club in the world (well not right now but certainly the best club of the decade.) Just my opinion

Well that’s fair but why is Alexander-Arnold there over VVD who most people believe had a better season?

Well in my opinion (and I know this is one that probably won't be shared) Trent is the better player because he made more of a difference to Liverpool than VVD. Trent not only provided defensive stability but he also registered an incredible 15 assists that were integral to Liverpool's Premier League and Champions League games. He had more shots per game than VVD, key passes, more crosses, more long balls and more dribbles but that could be down to the way Liverpool play. 

He was also as defensively stable than VVD if not more. He made more tackles a game and more interceptions which shows he had a lot to deal with. I believe all of Liverpool's defence were unfortunately extremely good but VVD's strength was mainly aerial. The other defenders all added something and I believe Trent added something to it

Why can’t Leroy Sane fit in Man City’s Starting XI

Where does he fit him in to the starting XI is the better question here. Looking at City’s team, Sterling and Bernando Silva are undroppable at the minute. That leaves 1 spot for 3 top quality players in Aguero, Jesus and obviously Sane. As good as Jesus is I don’t quite think he can be compared yet. Now Sane has made more appearances than Aguero this season but Aguero has played more minutes. Now Sane has scored an impressive 18 goals this season. Not bad until you compare it to Aguero’s 31. However Sane has made more assists to be fair with 14 to 9. Sane has also got a better discipline than Aguero. Right now Sane looks better. But when you start to look at important game statistics Aguero proves his worth over Sane for now. 17 in 20 of Agueros passes come off, which is more than Sane’s. Also Aguero takes 3.5 shots per 90 mins to Sane’s 1.8. That makes a huge difference. Also despite Sane being 10cm taller than Aguero, Sergio wins 1 in 2 aerial duels. Sane can’t compete with that. Aguero’s 6 MOTMs to Sane’s 3 show who has been better this season overall. As a result Sane can’t be chosen at the minute.

Thanks for reading if you have any debates please let me know and please send in questions.

Should Bernardo Silva win the Ballon D’or 

Does Bernardo Silva deserve the Ballon D’or 2019. No and here is why. Often it is based on two things, international performance and UCL performance. It shouldn’t be based on just those but it often is. And whilst Bernardo Silva won the Nations League, it wasn’t because he was Portugal’s best player. He has only really burst onto the scene this year and whilst he played a pivotal part in the victory, it was CR7 who was the difference maker.

And once again he wasn’t help by club performance. Sure they won 4 domestic trophies but once again it wasn’t him that was the difference maker. That was Raheem Sterling. Admittedly he was one of the best players in the UCL campaign for City and was pivotal in the quadruple run but still wasn’t the difference maker and it is difference makers that win Ballon D’ors

However he was named in the Nations League Team of the Tournament and was MOTM in the EFL Cup Final so he has still had a phenomenal season that could possibly see him in the Top 5 but no he doesn’t deserve to win the Ballon D’or

This man deserves to

As much as I agree with you with Bernardo Silva not being a Ballon D'Or winning quality player. I think that Lionel Messi isn't this season either. So far in the year of 2019, Messi has won La Liga, and is doing alright in the Copa America. In the Copa Del Rey Barcelona choked in the final and lost to Valencia. And they also allowed Liverpool to comeback from a 3-0 deficit with a weak side in the Champions League Semi Finals. If anyone deserves Ballon D'Or this season it should be a VVD or one of the Ajax youngsters.

Why did Man United halt their Harry Maguire bid? Was it to lower the price?

The Perhaps they saw that Harry Maguire was going to cost them £100 million, when really Maguire should be half of that. I give Maguire credit, he would be the best CB if he came but after a stunning World Cup, he hasn’t actually done a lot yet. Of course he is going to hit his prime soon and perhaps that will be the best time to get him. But I think we would get a good 3 years out of Maguire, but then I would feel we would have to look for other options. There is no need to pay £100 million for a player of that quality. Perhaps they still want Maguire because of what he would add to the team and they are trying to lower his price but perhaps they are seeing that Leicester don’t want to sell Maguire unless it is for a lot.

Personally I think Man United should look for much cheaper options, like Fabian Schar from Newcastle. He looks much better than Maguire, and despite being 2 years older, I feel like he still isn’t in his prime yet and United could get a lot out of him.

I believe Bash perfectly summed up Messis stats this season

Stats dont matter unless you have an end product to them. The overall goal for Messi this season would be for him to win the CL. Something that he didn't do. Also, these stats are good but you need to look in more depth. Messi took an average of 5 shots to score one, he also only got a goal every 84 minutes. For other players perhaps stats could show how good they are, but Messi is a superstar, we already know his stats will be impressive, so he has to impress in other ways like winning major trophies. Yes, La Liga is a major trophy but that is almost always won by Barcelona, so him winning that doesn't hold as much as it once did.

What do you think of Eden Hazard going to Real Madrid (please send me questions to answer so I don’t have to keep making them up)

I think it is brilliant for Real Madrid. They signed one of the best players in the world, for less than £100 million in today’s market. Neymar cost 2x as much as that and Hazard is a better player. I am guessing he will play either on the wing or in attacking midfield. The other players that can play that position are Bale, Isco, Vinicius Jr and Lucas Vázquez. Hazard is much better than all of them and will easily fit in on the wings in a 4–3–3 system. Hazard brings to Real great dribbling, excellent finishing, he is an exceptional passer, playing key passes and through balls brilliantly, and will also put in lethal crosses from the wings. And although he doesn’t contribute much defensively, he can hold the ball up brilliantly despite his size and defend from attack. Also, he is an exceptional free kick taker. Finally, his stats. He was involved in 31 goals directly last season, scoring 16 and assisting 15, and that was in the league alone. Benzema was directly involved in 27 goals directly in La Liga, Jovic 22 in Bundesliga, with those 2 being the two closest to him. He also made 2.7 key passes and 4.1 dribbles, more than any of Real’s players

Overall it’s a very good signing

You are mainly right with your stats. It took Messi 5.7 shots to score one goal and he scored one every 80 minutes. A goal a game is still an incredible ratio. Anyway although the past 5 Ballon D’or winners have won the UCL, there have been examples where the winners haven’t won a trophy at all - Ronaldo in 2013 where he only got to the semis and he won nothing else, in 2012 Messi won the Copa Del Rey and reached the semis of UCL and still won it, in 2010 Messi won La Liga and got to semi finals of the UCL, in 2004 Schevchenko only won the Serie A and only reached the quarter finals of the UCL. You don’t always have to win trophies to win the Ballon D’or

I think that some of the reasons why people won the ballon d'or without winning many trophies was because I believe it was during the times when they were scoring incredible goals at a high quantity during great performances. With that being said I would like to see what you think of the transfer window so far and any predictions you have for the rest of the window.

What do I think of the transfer window so far and any predictions I have for the rest of the window ( @GeorgeAK)

For this I will be reviewing some of the big transfers from Europe’s biggest teams and who I see them signing. For this I won’t do the 5 Real signings because if you scroll up I have done my opinions on them.

As for United’s 2 signings, I believe Dan James will be the best winger at the club and was a good signing by United, although I believe £15 million was a lot for him. I also believed they overpayed on Wan Bissaka, but they did need a RB and he is a United quality player.

Inter meanwhile snatched up Diego Godin on a free. He is still a world class player and brings a lot to Inter. He will give them a good few years at CB. Brilliant signing

Chelsea have a transfer ban but they managed to get Mateo Kovacic. In my opinion, I believe that is a signing they will come to regret. He adds nothing to Chelsea and they  have payed over the odds for him. Poor signing

Liverpool have taken a punt on Young Sepp Van den Berg. I don’t think this Dutch CB will ever be as good as the one they have right now and from what I’ve seen on him I don’t think he is going to be good enough. However if one day he develops into a world class player, then Liverpool will be buzzing. I think it’s too soon to make a call on this one

Meanwhile Barcelona got Neto. Now Barcelona, what a deal. I don’t know how they got him for a mere £26 million, this boy is world class and in my opinion he is better than Ter Stegen. Brilliant signing

Finally Atlético Madrid have been on a spending spree. The first one, Marcos Llorente, surprised me. I don’t believe Real would have given a player to a Atletico unless they didn’t believe he would be a threat. Poor signing. Hector Herrera however is still a great player and for Atletico to get him on a free is a decent signing. Finally they bought Joao Felix Who I believe has the potential to be one of the worlds best players. But potential and what they end up being are different things and £113 million could end up being looked at one day as either a great signing of an overpriced one

Spurs went into the market getting Jack Clarke and Ndombele. They needed Ndombele and I believe he will be great for Spurs but the question is did they overpay with 65 million. I also think they payed a lot for an untested Jack Clarke and I don’t think he is going to be as good as predicted. Poor signing

Now my 2 big predictions for the rest of the window.

Zaha to Arsenal for £60 million

Pogba to Juventus for £150 million

Thanks for reading. If you have any debates please post below and continue to send in questions.

Just wondering what you think about the Dwight McNeil thing. Personally, I can see positives and negatives with the situation. The negatives obviously are more visible than the positives though, and I believe it will be a really big risk for Juve, especially with the amount of money that is being rumoured.
