You need to understand the Caf humour. Many posts in the transfer forum are not completely serious, and yes there are some “nerds” who watch more global football. It’s no shame and it’s not an insult to call them nerds.The sentiment of ‘here’s a player I don’t see on Match of the Day each week so all you who vouch for him are just FIFA/FM nerds’ is really getting old. We can’t just always sign the obvious targets, especially not in our current predicament.
Enzo is regarded by many as the best player in Argentina. I’m not sure he’s what we need but I’m impressed by what I’ve seen. Tenacious, good tackler, neat on the ball and tremendous long range shooter. Apparently 20m max.
Danilo from Palmeiras is probably the equivalent best young DM/CM in Brazil and I bet he gets linked to us soon too. He’s like a magnet as a ball winner. Always in the right position to make clearances. Aggressive, strong and great defensive instincts despite originally being a winger. However, I don’t rate his technique especially highly.
I think Enzo Fernandez appears to have more upside. There’s good talent to be found in South America and we can’t just always rely on them proving themselves at another European club before we go in for them.
I understand that. Just think the joke's running slightly long in the tooth now. Feels like every thread on someone slightly non conventional attracts Fifa/FM jibes.You need to understand the Caf humour.

for example my post above clearly states I know nothing of this guy but I’m sure that someone on the caf will be an expert on him. That was said in jest, mainly because there usually is a group who will claim they’ve watched him, maybe a few did but a lot of them just know a player from watching YouTube clips. That’s Caf life!
Gallardo would've been a great choice for Barcelona, but they're happy with Xavi now. It'll be interesting to see where he ends up to be sure.Anyway, in other news, it appears Enzo Fernandez has agreed terms with Benfica but there's some thought that he wants to stay with River til January when their season is done. Head Coach Marcello Gallardo is staying til January too then will finally embark on managing a European club, it appears. He'll be a great choice of manager for someone. Has done a phenomenal job at River despite big financial issues meaning he's had to rebuild the squad repeatedly.
The only Argentine players I remember are Veron and Heinze. I don't think there are more.Never know how these South AMerican midfielders will do in EUrope let alone the premiership. We have had some brilliant Brazilians, but cant remember Argentinians .
I knwo nothing about him apart from youtube, but the vibe I get is hype and talk of generational talent of a player I used to love watching I wanted here was getting linekd with everyone...Santiagao Ascacibar. Still only 25 and seems to be attitude problems, but he seems to have faded away at Berlin, was such an intelligent dynamic young midfielder
