    For a start, Yannick Ferreira Carrasco of Monaco.

    Cool as hell name, for sure. Does he have the most unorthodox dribbling style in world football? (Suarez a contender).

    He looks so odd when he runs with it and his touches are all over the place and yet he is often going past defenders.

    2)

    Any Aussie fans have any views on Ryan Thomas at Zwolle?

    Monaco have so many interesting players.

    Carasco is one. I also love Fabinho (as good as Danilo who just went to Real Madrid for a massive fee), Wallace, Kurzawa, Bakayoko, Silva and Martial. They're all young players with big futures.

    Martial has really stepped it up lately after being played up front. This kid could become a top striker.

    Monaco do have some good young talent, id be cheering if we managed to get a few from them. Kondogbia has looked good! As poor as the french league is there is plenty of talent coming through there.

    Yes.


    On a different note, to the more knowledgeable in here, I haven't seen much italian football but was quite impressed by Sampdoria's Soriano against England the other week. What do people make him.

    N'golo Kante: Tough, pacey, tackling, minion. Everybody knows that I love DM's and boy this guy can shield.

    Abdul Baba, Pasalic, Lloyd Palun.

    He has a great stride. If he refines his game he has the ability to dominate the lesser sides.

    I 100% agree with you on Kante. He is this season's Krychowiak. An underrated midfielder who would be a bargain for most clubs. He'd run through a wall, but he can playas well.

    The Hipsterness is strong in this one (waves hand like a Jedi)



    Martial could go on to be a top striker...I'd love it if we started buying all these types and loaning them back for a year or two like Chelsea do...the ones who press on join the ones who don't get sold on.

    Loving the vote of approval. It's just the type of signing that we don't make. france has talent.

    It's a chance you have to take. He is 24 and has limited experience, but it's clear he is a productive player. Take a chance on this guy and even if for some reason it doesn't work out it's a chance that was worth taking.

    Aymeric Laporte and Inigo Martinez two young centre backs at Bilbao and Sociedad. I've been following both esp Inigo for a while now, been very very impressed with them.

    They have supremely high hopes for Martial in France. Already been dubbed the new Henry.

    There's this lad, Zlatan something, he's bossing it in the French League Cup final. We should look at him.

    Have you watched Larsson of Heerenveen? Looks to have settled well outside of Sweden and has been really dominant.

    Yes, but he struggles with the big numbers. I always had a soft spot for him after he walloped the ball at Van Persie's head.

    Looking more and more average and mid table as the days go bye

    I'm liking the other shouts people are making in here tho, so I still have hope (1% chance of it)
