Stephen Eustaquio

Looks like Eustaquio was once again awarded the "Player of the Game" for Pacos vs Tottenham.  Have to think that a few clubs were watching that game and hopefully were impressed.

Every game is showing more and more that he is above this level.

Tottenham is likely to put out a stronger team on Thursday.  They are hoping to he performs well again.  The transfer deadline is a big game of chicken.  Things can really ramp up the last days of the window.  They aren't going to give a player of Steph's quality away.  He's their golden ticket.  If he has an off game or the interest comes down to one team and there's no leverage they can just hold on to the player.  Eustaquio's contract runs for 2 more years.   Value on a player like Steph can only increase playing against quality competition.  That happens Thursday, but it's also going to happen in the international windows.

I find the purchase-him-to-immediately-sell-him a weird strategy. I mean, he’s not a house. I know some clubs do this speculative stuff but couldn’t another club have come in and bought him from Cruz Azul if the demand was there, without paying the Pacos Premium? Maybe the demand just isn’t there?

Interesting to see what they do with him tonight. 

They have played him every minute since he has been back with the club (He has missed one cup game played the day after our Gold Cup semi-final but played in their Conference League game a week after it.).  Even when they were up 4-0 on aggregate against a weak side.  They really want him noticed.  

So do they want him fresh for the trip to London and gamble on that.  Or keep riding him into the ground.

The numbers mean nothing right now. 

France will go up as Monaco won and qualified for the Champions League group stage tonight just as Benfica did last night. Scotland is high because a number of their teams have been involved in European preliminary rounds.  But all that will be dwarfed by the numbers that come later in the competitions.

Monaco is in extra time in its qualification vs. Shaktar. They have not qualified as of yet.

Thanks, my fault for going from when I last saw it and trying to follow about 5 games and the Carabao Cup draw.  I would say the general points stand. 

 

Update: Extra cruel way to be wrong (for them not me)

^Scotland quite high, that's interesting, we've never had much of a problem getting players to play there.

With both Celtic and Rangers back in Champions League, we can expect Scotland to bounce between 6-10 again as per normal.

They really were only so low because of Rangers imploding and the Scottish FA being vindictive, which ironically hurt the Scottish FA.

Europa League, they both crashed out earlier. And Rangers only have a one goal lead on aggregate.  Celtic are 2-0.

 

Actually hoping for a Europa League trip up there next month to face either, if the stars align with both a friend and the draw.

This is essentially a ranking of the top few teams in each league. That's definitely not the same as the competitiveness of the mid and lower table teams.

I prefer elo (club) country rankings:

Kane starting for Tottenham

still mostly a reserve squad + kane and lo celso. Son on the bench.

I count myself as a pretty knowledge fan of most top tier European teams and I have no idea who half of that starting 11 are.
