SG Draft 2017 - official sign up thread


Oh and tits.
CFs- Alexis, Mertens, Icardi, Sturridge
WFs- Alexis, Mertens, Benardeschi, Joao Mario
CM/DMs- Pogba, Nainggolan, Xhaka, Joao Mario, Jorginho, Florenzi
FB/SM/WBs- Baines, Florenzi, Bernardeschi, Joao Mario, Monreal, Blind
CBs- Blind, Godin, Manolas, Monreal

I could use up to 5 formations, plenty of combinations and basically cover every situation.

Should've been wiser with the Monreal thing but I was in a hurry, drunk and messed up to think properly. Can I change?

picks are locked once someone else has picked after you. you could offer him for transfer if we do that, but it needs a couple more votes before that will happen

Introducing Diogo Dalot to SG:


The rest of the world will get to know him soon enough :jap:

Well over the last 5 years or so, both Porto and Benfica have had a surge of young talents which is something that usually happens to Sporting. The level of some of these kids has been so good that it's basically impossible for coaches to not give them a shot in the first team. Portugal's latest youth teams have been hugely promising and I really believe we are set for the next decade, at least.

Dalot is only 18 but is already regarded as a future star given the quality he's been showing for both Porto and Portugal's youth teams. He's yet to make his debut for Porto's first team but believe he's ready to go and I hope he gets his me, you don't see many fullbacks playing with such "authority" all over the pitch these days.

BTW I also believe Rúben Neves will finally get the minutes he deserves. Last season he didn't play as much as he should because Danilo was a beast all season long. Big offers for Danilo though, so this might just be Rúben's moment.
He was simply outstanding for the U21s this tournament and I hope he extends that form into his Porto season. One of my favorites for sure, fantastic player...


Porto and Benfica has great academies with very good coaches as well. Specially Porto, one of best in the Europe (they obviously lack the attracting power).

Yes I understand that, but every US kid with any potential finds his way to the u17 residency program, which is like Clairfontaine I guess. In theory they should get the best coaches in the country there. But in a nation of 300 million, we can't even produce as much talent as the city of Porto. Don't even mention Lisbon.
