  1. Well I watched him playing… Great player, he’s gifted and class. My personal opinion is a giant yes. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  2. Dont know much about him tbh,so i cant really rant or rave about him.Well i could pretend i was an expert on him but i will save that for people on another site ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • ahah.. of course my personal opinion is subject to prior approval of the experts of the other site… there everything’s okay now, they’re getting along, everyone’s so kind, the keyword is positivity. Looks like they are at Woodstock… lol ๐Ÿ˜€

      • Lol,they are all too busy crying about leaving the ground.Damn i have been going for about 40yrs but i aint going to start crying about every video that appears for the next year ๐Ÿ˜€

  3. Are Marseille closing down or doing a Southampton and starting from fresh,every player
    they have seems to be on the move,
    Don’t know much about him but the word playmaker makes me sit up and pay attention.
    Do you know him Matte

  4. Again, no mention of any homegrown talent. This all points to keeping Nolinho and the likes. Unless, of course, there’s a genuine push to blood some youngsters int the squad.

  5. Its fine,we bring these guys in but some others will move out.They will get the balance right im sure ๐Ÿ˜‰
