Starts today.

Post your team observations.

I'm watching Arsenal second squad playing against some 3rd tier division team. Their away jersey actually look pretty good. Can't really judge right now because most of these players will go out on loan in next few weeks.
Arsenal playing NY Red Bulls next week. Should see Alexis and Debuchy for the first time.

Chelsea second team looks bad. They better avoid injury bug.

We're up at 4:00 against Seattle. Should be a good game and an excellent chance to see how we've progressed so far this off-season, as the Sounders aren't a slouch team at all. Will be strange to see Demps playing against us though for the first time since he left. Can't wait!

 

COYS!!!

Jordon Ibe must get time in the first team. He is absolutely rapid. If we could work Ibe in as a sub after Sterling, his pace will give defenders fits.

Great first goal from Holtby. Looking good so far on strikes, midfield.. not so much.

Watched Barcelona's B team yesterday because I work with a guy who's cousins with Alen Halilovic. Had some solid touches but nothing spectacular. Kid is 17 though, and you can definitely see potential.

Lol Arsenal playing with 6 midfielders and no forward. Why do I have a feeling that's gonna be formation I see a lot going forward.

Lazar Markovic clearly has a lot of technical ability and pace, but he is very raw. No way he can be a starter right now.

Holtby better not go out on loan again.. that kid has tons of pace, and works the box to box extremely well. He has some focus issues sometimes, but his upside is far greater than his down.

 

 

He looked like a perfect fit in Poch's system.

I'm not sure why he went on loan last year.  Dude is very talented.

Isco to play false 9 tonight for Real Madrid. After being dynamic in the midfield on Saturday will be interesting to see him in that role.

Seems like Brandon Rodgers continues to play his 1st squad for 90 minutes .

It will either payoff or backfires.
