    • I dont think he is done at Lille, its been under ten games and hes their most expensive signing ever.  Its not the best fit in the world for David but he really should have about 4 goals now. Sure he missed the pen but he did draw it so he is doing something right. 
    • Two big news today..schelotto gone..results werent good enough..but it has to be said that players overall were bad and should perform much better than that no matter who is the coach..and final standings will be determined by points per game LA Galaxy relieve head coach Guillermo Barros Schelotto of his duties MLS to use points per game to determine final 2020 regular season standings
    • Bamford is killing it at Leeds
    • Maturing a bit might have actually made him self-conscious in a way he wasn't before, considering the price tag and the expectations placed on him. Considering composure under pressure is his hallmark and a psychological trait, this seems plausible. Don't know how anyone could interpret that to mean that a 20 year old is moving past his prime.
    • I think it goes both ways. David repeatedly said Lille was where he wanted to go because of the playing time he would get, but what about the style of play?  It has been said that maybe he underestimated the level of play in France, but I believe he didn't give enough consideration for the style of play and whether he would be a fit for it. Or, maybe he did consider that and saw it as a chance to round out his game. "With guaranteed playing time I can learn to play in a different way", he may have figured. Only he and his advisors know.  Either way, I cannot help but wonder where he would be had he joined Leeds. Can't go back now though, he must make the most of it. He must succeed.

    • Lille don't play on the counter like Gent, I think this is part of the problem. His quick combination play in and around the box needs to improve. I think Lille did a bad job of scouting. They'll probably win the possession battle in like 90% of their Ligue 1 games. Worryingly though, he has not even looked good in transition. Hoping he can stick with it and succeed at Lille.
    • Won 5-1 tonight in the Europa League.  Could have been more. A game they probably had to win if they are serious about advancing, even this earlier.   Sitting 2nd in the group on goal difference.  First of 2 games with Gent who sit bottom,  next week.
