Typical expected disappointing end to the review for me. Damn Aurier for that Periscope thing and his form nosediving off a cliff when he came back.

Might as well do it now

Southend Utd Serie A players
Prediction
  • Giuseppe Pezzella (18/75): +2
  • Ibrahima Mbaye (21/84): no change
  • Piotr Zielinksi (21/85): + 1
  • Gianluigi Donnarumma (17/85): not sure if he will get another raise that fast. Hoping for + 1 at least

Manchester United team to face Bristol City tonight:

De Gea (93)

Roberto (89) Ramos (95) Boateng (94) Rodriguez (91)
Silva (89) ???
Götze (93) Griezmann (93) Özil (94)
Martial (89)​

??? is currently Mikel Merino (82) but will do a late fitness test on my midfielders. Pogba's injury a few games ago buggered things up.

How well are Milan doing? Wouldn't be surprised to see Donnarumma get a + 1 or 2 despite rising in March.

I've only got one Serie A player so no real point of doing a prediction. Pogba won't rise anyway.

Rabiot + 1, Nkunku +2. Expecting at least 4 players to rise from italian review. Most notably Koulibaly to 90. Romagnoli + 1 if i'm lucky.

Reserves v Forest since i forgot to change for the cup.

Mihajlović was sacked last month, probably because he failed to get Milan closer to CL spot. But the new coach is not doing any better. Now in 7th place. May not even qualified for Europa League next season

Niang's injury (due to car accident) in January made things worse. And Balotelli is still poor

Still a long way to go before they can reach top 4 again

Napoli's home record is impressive. Awful away though.

Atleast it started a nice cycle for me. Swapped shaqiri for nastasic with the koulibaly tip as add on and then nastasic in the deal for Reus.

@RedSky

"He is in a phase in which it is not running so for him," addressed sporting director Horst Heldt loud "kicker" the obvious. Coach André Breitenreiter made in this connection, meanwhile the red card after the nasty foul on André Hahn crux of: Following the dismounted lock Geis had "difficulties came in again." Since then, the midfielder remains often below its potential.

Manager Heldt sees the ball while lying player: "He has to zoom fight again!"

@Balu @do.ob @Sphaero if possible could one of you translate Heldt's quotes in that article please? Thanks.
The headline means Geis not untouchable at Schalke anymore.

The first little quote from Heldt says that Hojbjerg did well [when he played instead of Geis].

"Es ist sein erstes Jahr auf Schalke, wo es halt nicht immer ganz so einfach ist", sagte Heldt. "Er steckt in einer Phase, in der es für ihn nicht so läuft. Er muss sich wieder herankämpfen."

This one means: It's his [Geis'] first year at Schalke where things aren't always so easy. He's at a point where things aren't going his way and he has to fight his way back.

Heldt will be gone by sunday (officially now) and Breitenreiter probably won't survive his first season either, so I don't really think it matters a whole lot what they think.

Thanks :) Bit of a weird one with Hojbjerg going back to Munich this summer. Think a two-season long loan might have worked well.

Schalke's entire tranfer-dealings and coach hires of the past years have been an embarrasment, so I wouldn't go looking for sense in their decisions..
Their incredible academy is what kept them from (completely coing under).
