Davies #9 in the world in Value at 133 mil. :)
Um.....where in the world are you getting your info at? According to Transfermarkt, he's the ninth most valuable player on BAYERN MUNICH right now, with a value of $49.5 million.

Which is ten million less than....

Christian Pulisic.

Just disregard Nick... he's almost reached the point of just scribbling in MS Paint and posting it as breaking news.

Iunno man transfer market.com didn’t say it so who knows right?


Also imagine thinking a 21 yr old with 9 mil “value” more than a 19 yr old is impressive :lol: also one is a winger and ones a converted winger to defender. Attackers are always valued higher. I thought u knew soccer Jay?

Is Louisville ever gonna get to the MLS? Just curious

1) Pulisic is worth more than Davies. Yes, he's older--that usually lowers value, not raises it--and he's proven to be more dynamic, more versatile, and more proven than Davies. Davies has had a good couple of months--he's yet to prove year-in, year-out what he can do. Pulisic has.

2) I know soccer much more than you. I will be happy to compare resumes with you if you'd like. Just keep in mind, there is an international fantasy Premier League expert league that has 20 members in it, recognized names in the industry from ESPN, Rotowire, etc. One of us is in it. One of us isn't.

3) No, we don't have the financial backing here to get an MLS team. It costs $150m+ to buy a franchise. We are happy with our USL team (which played in their third straight USL Cup last year), and our NWSL team that starts next season, and our stunning new stadium which will debut nationally on ESPN this Sunday.

Better to love and lost, then to have never loved.... or in this case, won. That the from a Browns fan that has been looking at mock drafts by October, for the better part of his life.

Ugh.

Don't want/need that circus, but sadly, I think the only place it's headed is right towards us.

Posted it in our main Madden chat... I think the options look like this:
- Man City
- PSG
- Serie A

Someone floated the idea of Juve bringing him in and Ronaldo heading to United. I'm mixed on that.

1) Messi ain't leaving Barca and never will. He's doing what Rooney did at United--he's pissed off that the club isn't investing well enough around him and flexing his power. They've wasted money and poorly invested for years and it's showing.

2) We get it, Nick. Davies is really good. Never said he wasn't. Said he wasn't worth more than Pulisic (and he still isn't). He's the most exciting LB in the world, but he's not the "best" LB in the world--hell, he might not be the best LB on his TEAM (that would be Alaba, who is playing at CB because he's that versatile). Also, he's not going to stay a LB--he's a freakish athlete playing at LB whose pace allows him to get away with positioning mistakes, and who will eventually get pushed up (as he should) into an attacking role. He's this generation's Gareth Bale.

J: "Nuh uh, (you don't know soccer comment/example)"
N: "Yuh huh (insert other article)"
J: "Whatever, go (some form of getting high from marijuana)"
N: "Go (some sort of sexual act) to (some form of UK coach or player)"
