  1. I don't know if you watched the Dortmund game but he made Jadon Sancho a complete non-factor. Sancho got subbed out before the half and his replacement, who I can't remember, also couldn't do anything going one-on-one with Davies down the wing.
  2. Updates much appreciated. Is Werder Bremen playing with a 3-man back line with Belal playing outside back?
  3. UEFA rankings look at past results and Lille was life and death not to get relegated for the 2017-2018 season and they were mid and low-mid table for a few years before that. Based on current squads, however, there isn't a single player on Gent who would make the starting 11 for Lille.
  4. Here's a great in-depth profile of David from the Lille correspondent for Sofoot.com: https://www.sofoot.com/jonathan-david-un-surdoue-au-losc-487736.html Just use Google translate for an English version.
  5. TV5 HD on Bell Fibe Ontario is 1134. SD is 134.
  6. I find it even more frustrating watching Bamba, and to a lesser extent, Ikone, always trying to take that extra touch or make that extra move instead of making a simple, more obvious pass.
  7. Here's a very detailed analysis of David's game and how Lille might use him: https://cafecremesport.com/2020/08/02/jonathan-david-pret-a-conquerir-leurope/
  8. For my money, he's prime Michael Bradley with better offensive instincts.
  9. I think the couple of sitters that he missed are more telling than the two he got, even the first one which was a cracker of a finish. It's a small sample size but it's like the Kingsley Coman school of finishing. You make highlight reel plays and goals but you miss absolute sitters.
  10. I watch both Ligue 1 and Jupiler and Ligue 1 is a huge step up from Jupiler. Bottom half of Ligue 1 would absolutely wipe the table against similar teams in the Jupiler.
  11. That was how much they paid for Sanches last year, their highest ever transfer. If 25M is their starting point, they'll likely go a bit higher.
  12. That was my reaction the first time I saw the video. He instantly reacted to the situation and knew the Anderlecht player was breaking away. There might be faster players who either don't recognize the danger or are out of gas by the 85th minute. David runs the most km's on his team each game and his somewhat stocky build belies his fantastic fitness level.
  13. In addition to the skill set you've listed, David's got an outstanding motor. This lung busting track back run in the 85th minute against Anderlecht has probably been posted already but here it is again. https://www.rtbf.be/sport/football/belgique/jupilerproleague/detail_jonathan-david-sprinte-97m-a-33km-h-en-fin-de-match-contre-anderlecht?id=10428508
  14. If there's a fifty-fifty ball and you want the other player carried out on a stretcher, then Piette's your guy but in virtually all other parts of the game, Eustaquio is a better player.
  15. I've been closely following Lille since their near death relegation season when my son used to work there. He's back in Toronto but I still follow the team. For every Pepe who underwhelms, there are countless players who have made a seamless transition to a top 8 Champions League tea. I thought Pepe was good but he dominated physically in a technical league. A player like David has more soccer IQ in his left boot than Pepe has in his whole body. Same for Osimhen but at least he's not as ball dominant as Pepe. The only thing he has over David is height and power but that said, he'll do better in Italy than the Premiership. David has the type of skills that are not league dependent. He sees and uses space so well his play making abilities will shine if he has some class players around him. It's too bad that Chakvetadze was injured this season because he's the type of gifted creative player that would have been a dynamic pairing with David.
