Ball boy is a twat, but still. Hazard also throws his hands up and looks at the ref after every damn tackle. Great player, but I don't have to like him.

Just did a long ass post on a Football Manager board about my Chelsea team as of December 2020. Figured id post it here too since a lot of you play FM and may find it interesting for whatever reason. Basically, I run down my team, which, as Chelsea, is going to be absurd. So be prepared for greatness!

Your team is straight stacked. Congrats on building a solid young team, and nice post as well. Malara sounds like he will be one of the greats.

Thanks! It's funny, because as stacked as my squad is, I've still only won the CL once. It's so hard to actually accomplish. And I love it. Even as a top club, it's super hard to win the top prize.

You've kept the belgians players so you've got a golden team, but why didn't you retain Chalobah, Bertrand, Piazon or even Kalas ?

Wow, you don't like Hazard because you think he is a douche but you accept Ben Harfa who is one of the worst even for a french ?

I like both of them, i've seem some interviews with Hazard and he seems like a really funny guy.

But Hatem isn't a douche either, he's just misunderstood. He's got a personality similar to Mario Balotelli, but he just isn't as public. And Rob is right, he's better than Eden.

I like Hatem solely because he plays for Newcastle. Although he has put in a ton of effort to mature since coming to England. I'd still probably hate him if he was on any other team though.

Absolutely not. Bayern may still win but if they do it'll be a dogfight. They played a perfect season last year and there's just no way for them to repeat that this year without even getting into the coaching change and the adjustment that entails.

Even with their perfect season they only ran away with the title because Dortmund stumbled out of the gates last year and never could catch up. BVB is stronger this year and the D seems to be playing a lot more like they did in the two salad bowl seasons prior than what they looked like last year, so it's gunna be a toss up between those two at the top and I actually think Dortmund will taking the salad bowl back, unless they make another deep CL run, then their divided focus will likely cost them again.

You know much more about the BuLi than myself, but I strongly disagree. I think, barring injuries, Bayern rolls. Now, will the games with Dortmund be competitive, hell yes.....Bayern eviscerates everyone else though while Dortmund will have to play close ones.

I'm not going to respond to this in depth until after today's game, but if you can, try and catch it, I think you'll be surprised by how Gladbach hold out against Bayern.

I'm debating between BuLi or Ligue One today haha. I'll probably watch Bayern though. It wouldn't shock me to see Bayern stumble occasionally for the first few games under Pep, but once they hit a groove and start hammering teams by 5+ goals, I see them steamrolling the league.

*shrug* but that's exactly what cost Dortmund the title last year, stumbling out of the gates. Meanwhile BVB look deadlier than ever with the defense of the first two years and even more firepower than last year and are rolling into the season, Bayern could well be out of range by the time they find their feet and there are still a few non-BVB teams they struggle against like Leverkusen and Gladbach.

total tongue-in-cheek post on my part, of course it's a two horse race. i was a fan of leverkusen's players and with wunderkid son heung-min there now, that's my main team in the bundesliga for the foreseeable future.

I understand, I just expect Bayer to regress, I'm not very high on Son for similar reason to why I wasn't too high on Schurrle and despite those Andre's a better player than Son. I also think that they overachieved a lot last year with Schalke doing Schalke things, Dortmund's slow start, all of the other "historic" or "big" teams having poor seasons, and Leverkusen themselves just grinding out some results that they were lucky to get.

I think they're in for a serious fight for that 4th spot with Gladbach, Wolfsburg, Stuttgart, Frankfurt and whoever this year's surprise team is.

son was definitely a overrated prospect but he's remarkably improved his technical skills and i have loftier expectations for him now that he is at a much better club. despite their somewhat good finish last season, hsv was terrible and an absolute bore to watch. when van der vaart wasn't on the pitch, they had no functional attack. son thrived on counter-attacks and he seems to be a great fit for leverkusen's brand of football. he scored some beautiful goals last season against quality opponents including two at the westfalenstadion. i'm betting that with much better teammates, he'll produce a lot more as well.

what club do you have pegged for 3rd? schalke?

Brandy's really settled awesomely for us, after scoring the tying goal and setting up the winner in the cup, he gives us the 1-0 against Dresden just minutes before yet another gorgeous long shot goal from our captain, the incomparable Torsten Mattuschka.

I've got Schalke taking third, Szalai is a huge pick up so that they can survive a Hunter injury without collapsing. Goretzka gives their central midfield some brilliance they haven't had since Raul was still there to push Holtby into midfield. With Draxler playing in the hole from the get go and no Holtby transfer to derail their season I think they're big favorites for third.

Son is a good and useful player, like Schurrle was for them or Robben is for Bayern, but he has similar limitations in how mediocrely he links up with others. Bayer are a good fit for him though, as the Schurrle role is exactly what he excels at and he does have a good shot and dribbling.

But I'm pretty high on gladbach, Kruse was a great pick up, Xhaka's settled in, Dominguez and the D will be a lot more reliable from the get go this year, and their great youngsters, Younes, Dahoud and Hrgota, are all more ready to contribute.

Wolfsburg should surprise now that they finally have some direction at the top and are making smart buys, like Gustavo, and Stuttgart just have too many creative players and goal scorers I like, if Rudiger steps up next to Tasci and their D stops sucking they could take the 4 spot as well.
