Kylian Mbappe appreciation thread

Post by sportsczy on Mon Oct 24, 2016 9:57 pm

Only 17... monstrous talent.  I think he's more talented than both Ousmane Dembele and Martial.

City already offered 40 mil euros this past summer (Pep wanted him) and Monaco said no as they see him as another cash cow in a year or two like Martial.

Here's the link to City being refused:

Kid is an alien.

In just his second start for Monaco this season this past week against Montpellier, he caused a PK, scored a goal and had 2 assists:

Can he play on the wing ? If so, there must indeed be a cure for my permanent heartache on us missing out on Dembele. cheers

When Le Graet took over in June 2011, one of his first actions was to revolutionize the French youth system to emulate La Masia, as much as possible.  As he said when he was asked about it in a press conference in WC 2014 "When I see Barcelona play, I see not only football but art.  Why wouldn't you want to play like that?"  When an overriding technical directive is given, all levels of the youth system that are reliant on funding from the FFF (all of them basically) have to immediately conform.  As a result, the emphasis was shifted from strong physical play to technical/skillful play.  The kids that were 14 years old or younger at 2011 are hitting the pros now.  For 10 years, France was relying on Lyon and PSG to develop the attacking skilled players while the rest were bringing up strong players mostly... now, everyone is bringing on skilled players.

It's nice to see tbh.  It's been a very quick and dramatic change.  I thought it would take longer.  But it shows how much talent there is in France for the system to develop players so quickly in such quantities.

The only shame is that the managerial tactics employed by the old school managers who still permeate the higher level youth NT teams and most of Ligue 1 haven't been moved out.  That's the next step.  The managerial transition will take longer as the very promising young managers need to get their chance further up the chain.  Almost there though as Batelli is now the U20 manager and he's the first one of the new age managers.  Will be interesting to see who the new U23 manager will be too.

Another step is to train the referees to call games in a way that favors skill... that hasn't happened at all either.

But the most important thing is the player development and that has been a resounding success.

Was pretty good against Montpellier. Stood out from the rest in the front line. He's got some flashiness. Hope he keeps it up.

Very good. Looks head and shoulders better than Martial.

Kid is going to be a superstar no doubt about. His name is a bit shit though. Mbappe sounds like your run of the mill garbage player. Should go by Kylian Lottin. This actually sounds like he's gonna be a superstar.

Kaka's name could literally mean shit. Didn't stop him from winning Ballon D'Or, did it? XD

This is where McAgger is wrong, the é makes Mbappé the elite player he is.

If you need evidence: Kaká = GOAT, Kaka = shit.

bappé part is not too bad.

It's the fricking double consonant 'Mb'. Has an awful sound to it.

Well it could be worse. Could have been Traore or Diawarra or *bleep* Sissoko.


Mbappe is a godsend compared to that.

Kylian Lottin sounds unbelievably good. Don't know why he didn't go with it.

Brace at HT against Nantes.

For the season so far:

12 starts (12th ongoing) and 14 sub appearances
13 goals
5 assists

First season as a pro period. Turned 18 on December 20th.

That's before todays game, right? He's on 15 goals with the brace today now I think.

Kid is unbelievable. Barring injuries it's not even doubt he'll be world class.

Some teenagers it's very easy to see they will be world class and if you watch him play he's exactly that.

People in France rate this kid higher than Ousmane Dembele... I think he has better scoring instincts and pure technique. Dembele has that ridiculous speed and two-footed thing going on.

Tough call for me.

Young talented players just keep popping up every season.

In just one year we seem to have forgotten about Martial and Coman. Laughing
