    Sounds like the noise I make when Dembele has the chance to release the ball forward but instead takes on another opponent and pivots back to our goal...

    Ottawa, actually.
    Lyon fans on r/soccer seem pretty confident that Michel Aulas wouldn't consider selling at any price. Their 'big' sale for this year is Fekir - they have Champions League football and healthy finances, so they don't need to sell anyone else this summer.

    And, even in the unlikely event that they did, N'Dombele would be probably the last player they'd sell. Apparently he's destined to be the best box-to-box midfielder in world football very soon - as good as Pogba. And, to be fair, the Youtube compilations are very impressive - he has a fantastic passing range, and seems about as good at dribbling, defending and physicality as Dembele is.

    However, that's all I've seen of him, so I can't say if he's actually that good. But, if this accurate, we're either talking unprecedented money for a 21 year-old from our perspective (75m+ or thereabouts, maybe), or there's some snag in his contractual situation (he's actually on loan at Lyon from Amiens, although the buy-out clause has apparently already been activated).

    This player doesn't actually exist does he? He's this summer's Jimmy Kong. Dembele but if he was a crap French league player like Njie and Nkoudou

    I had to do a Rose and look him up on Google :)

    Looking at the obligatory youtube clips it struck me that he played witht he ball a yard away from him and it looked like he was about to lose contyrol of it every time he had it, he then turned and was in the same situation without the defender there. My concern is in the PL he wouldn't have those turning circles.

    Also his range of passing didn't appear to be as good as I expected most of them being the obvious ball to play.

    One question though, if he is on loan from Amiens to Lyon why aren't we negotiating with Amiens?

    Id rather keep a half fit Dembele

    And use Onomah more

    Imo Onomah would be a 40 mill rated player after one season playing centre mid in Ligue 1

    Looks pretty skilled to me, but then again, Sissoko looks good on Youtube, so who knows ...



    I like his energy though, he doesn't look like a guy who'll back down.

    When I was a kid they use to show trailers of films that were going to be show soon, they were perfectly cut to show the exciting bits and get you to spend your sixpence next week, nothing has changed

    Exactly. Imagine Winks or Dier or Wanyama or Dembele in French football. They would smash it up

    Kante played in the French league and was still a beast when he moved to the PL, in spite of being half the size what you would expect a PL midfielder to be. I don't think you can make judgments based on the league.

    And you did not have to see the movie because the whole plot was in the clips.

    Some american tv shows used to do it as well.

    Paris United seem to be a French PSG site and Twitter account. They only tweet a couple of times a day and most of it is PSG related. I have no idea how accurate they are. Daily Hotspur are just retweeting rumours and gossip, which is no different to what we do here.

    I think it’s just regurgitating other rumours. And this is a transfer rumour thread after all.

    Having said that, the same account reports that PSG are talking to Sissoko’s representatives.
    So maybe you are right :)

    I remember desperately wanting to see Shane after I saw the promo, but it was a big let down as a western to me as a kid, I could never understand why they had to have girls in the films.
