Some of you probably react to his family name, and yes you're right - it's the son.

Another player from Serie A that I'm keeping my eyes on. I think he's got something special. Very intelligent and sophisticated player. Mostly played out wide. 19 years old. Will most likely be a top player in the coming years as he's already ahead of players his own age.

Also slightly off topic but Hagi's son Ianis has been getting some minutes recently too at Fiorentina! They seem to be doing a good job of bringing through ex-legends kids :D

Yeah, a true generational legend.

His dad was pretty special, one of the best free kick takers I've ever seen.

Diego Simeone's son is doing well too at Genoa, 6 goals in 16 Seria A games isnt too bad for a 21 year old.

Most youtube videos make the worst players look like the lovechild of Messi and Ronaldo... that video made me think he wouldn't get on the pitch for a local pub team

Played well against Napoli. Looked fairly two footed to me. RWB in their 3-4-3.

Serie A seems to have a pretty good thing going on for the sons of legends. Maybe we can send Becks' kids over there :drool:

No idea where Successful got to. Not sure if mods know?

Unfortunately, Lawman passed away at the end of last year.
That's awful. So sad to hear that. Do you know if there's a thread on it?

Chiesa is the real deal. If there's one bit of recruitment I'd go for this summer, it's Chiesa. He's absolutely tailor made for our right hand side. Pace, ability, direct, clinical.
He's got his dad's finishing.

Yes, he'd cost 40-50 million now maybe more in the summer

Thanks for posting it. I can't access it for some reason.
Have to be a main member.


Regarding Chiesa I recall his criticism was his end product but I see he has 10 goals this season already, hope it continues.

He's the exact sort of player we should be looking at. Pacey, hard working, great technique.
