U-21 European Championship 2013

Post by Fey on Wed Nov 28, 2012 6:23 pm

The draw just happened, and of course a tasty group was made.

Group A
Israël
Engeland
Noorwegen
Italië

Group B
Spanje
Nederland
Rusland
Duitsland

Harsh group for Holland, but Holland will have a good line-up that will almost be the same as the one that will most likely play in Brazil. Italy got fairly lucky I guess with Israel, Norway (though they kicked France out) and England.[strike]

Bardi, Bianchetti, Biraghi, Caldirola, and Donati are all from Inter academy and owned by Inter. They constitute the entire defense of the Azzurrini starting XI. Destro is also Inter academy, though not owned by us anymore.

That gives Inter academy 6 as well.

Other Inter academy youth products who were also eligible included Balotelli, Santon, Benassi, Longo etc but for one reason or another, they did not make the squad.

Very good, didnt knew that but they are all loaned out. And if you count that way, im forced to pick the traitors Fer and Wijnaldum as well.

Which puts us on 8!

As for Donati, I like him. I picked him for my fantasy team!



cheers

Very good! But I think Real has to have more then Mes Que un club in the future.

Gladbach als has 5, it's obvious that the converyor belt is situated there.

Nice team, but I suggest you pick Biraghi instead of Donati. Better prospect IMO, he was one of the revelations of Serie B last season. If you are not stuck on fullbacks, Caldirola is Azzurini's best defender (and captain) and will definitely start every game.

In the midfield, Florenzi is more likely to score than Verratti, but Verratti may get more assists. Tough call.

Also, I would recommend Bardi as gk (amazing talent, very Buffon-like) and Destro or Gabbiadini instead of Insigne (score more goals). But its tough picking Italian strikers - there are so many options and there is bound to be rotation. Immobile & Gabbiadini were so good during qualification, but now since Destro and Borini have become available, don't know who will start. Insigne should start every game IMO, so a safe pick.

And to think Balotelli and El Shaarawy were also eligible!

Cheers.

I wanted to play Bardi, but one can only pick 3 player per nation. I went for Verratti cause Florenzi is literally twice as expensive. And considering I spend my entire kitty...

Do you know the line-up of Italy for tonight, Im not sure if im allowed to make subs anymore considering the deadline is expiring in two hours or so.

Its very hard to predict the line up, with these senior team players coming into the squad. My best guess is:

Bardi
Donati - Capuano - Caldirola - Biraghi
Florenzi - Verratti - Marrone
Insigne - Destro - Borini

The ones in bold, I am pretty sure they will start. But Bianchetti, Frascatore, Saponara, Immobile, and Gabbiadini could easily start in place of others.

Verratti, Insigne and Florenzi all very impressive - don't know much about the others apart from Destro, Borini, Immobile and I don't think any of the latter 3 will be worldbeaters.

Chalobah v Verratti cheers


Anyone know our line up ?

I'm pretty sure Ince is suspended for tonight's game. The hype is obviously around Zaha as he's now a United player Rolling Eyes Shame, as Chalobah definitely deserves more credit.

Goalkeepers: Butland, Rudd, Steele
Defenders: Caulker, Clyne, Dawson, Lees, Rose, Shaw, Smith, Wisdom
Midfielders: Henderson, Chalobah, Ince, Lansbury, Lowe, McEachran, Shelvey, Townsend
Forwards: Wickham, Zaha, Sordell


Maybe something like this:

Butland
Clyne Caulker Dawson Shaw
Henderson Chalobah Shelvey
Lansbury Sordell Zaha

ENGLAND (4-2-3-1, probable): Butland (Stoke); Smith, Caulker (both Tottenham), Dawson (West Bromwich Albion), Robinson (Liverpool); Henderson (Liverpool), Chalobah (Chelsea); Shelvey (Liverpool), McEachran (Chelsea), Lansbury (Nottingham Forest); Wickham (Sunderland).

I agree re the latter 3.

I think Bardi and Caldirola could also potentially become top players, though a lot depends on how their career progresses. Another one to watch out for is Gabbiadini, I rate him more than Borini.

Luca Marrone was another I really rated last year as a DM, but with Pogba exploding at Juve and Vidal becoming world class, Marrone has become more of a back up CB there.

It's a much more defensive lineup.

Nathaniel Clyne at right back, Sordell up front with Wickham, Redmond and Jason Lowe instead of Chalobah and McEachran. Otherwise he was spot on.

England's squad numbers are going to ruin this tournament for me.

----------Rode-----Rudy--------------
Sorg -------------------Jantschke
-----------Ginter---Rüdiger------------
-----------------Leno--------------------

Hmm i don`t know, Striker is shit, Ginter is 19 years old, played a brilliant season, this could have been a decent partnership with the injured kirchhoff, i don`t know how good rüdiger is

fullbacks are good

CM is hardworking

i like the attacking front 3, this team should have a great balance, with holtby as there leader and creative player

to get out of the group of death would be fantastic, spain has a lof of great individual skill, don`t know there style, let`s hope they field every tiny small midfielder they have UNBALANCED Laughing


clasie, van ginkel and strootman, looks good from the names, let`s see if feys hype was justified

shit game so far... Insigne has missed a couple of chances, he is looking ok.

I expected better understanding between Verratti-Insigne-Immobile, considering they were all at Pescara together.
