Some fanbases just hype the F out of any and every youth that comes to them.

literally..you can rattle off half a dozen from Juventus especially the last 4-5 seasons alone

Coman? Keane? Rugani? Lemina? Bentacur and more

PL fanbases generally seem a lot less prone to exaggeration with their youth..probably because we never give them a chance to play meaningful minutes and we know that Laughing

Madrid fanbase seem to do the same too tbh, and I'm not talking about GL strictly..in general

I'm not entirely sure why it happens, but eh

Much better to hype up 87 year old failed wingers turned left backs like Ashley Young while they lead you to the treble of sadness and finishing 17 points behind the bald fraud in the league

tbf to Ashley Youncelo, it's not hype if he's actually delivering week to week

trust me I'd rather not be in the position of  lavishing praise on that numpty

which is a good point actually, after his performance on Friday I'm hoping Shaw can finally start going hard for Manchester United and not Mcdonalds

but i'm expecting Mou to bench him as soon as Young's fully rested

Something not exactly valid for Liverpool since Rodgers came. We have to follow the academy as both Rodgers and Klopp can field academy players randomly as solutions.

But it's the case in PL, there is no "Best 11", for each team's it's 'best 6-7' max, the rest are a bunch of scrubs who will always cost you points so it doesn't matter. Whereas in Seriously Zzz and Bundesfodder, they have 17-18 players who can compete and do the job.

My predictions:

City to win the PL comfortably.

United and Arsenal to both miss out on CL places.

Liverpol finish 4th again.

Real to finish 3rd.

Ronaldo will score less than 20 goals this season.

Mourinho to punch Sarri and Sarri burning Mourinho's hair from his lighter, both getting banned for the rest of the season.

Barcelona will win the CL.

We won't talk about Bayern until February in GL when they win the league.

Fulham to get relegated.

I hate hyping of youth players in general tbh. 95% of youth players turn up to be nothing.

Until I see you performing in a top league for at least a season you're a fraud imo.

Yanited to win the league with the Rash and Martial having breakthrough seasons ala CR / Rooney in 06-07

Juve to win Serie Z and CR having his worst GS season to date.

Barca to win the treble as they finally found their new Brazilian version of Xaviesta in Coutinho and Arturo. That's if they get past the QF, they will beat the master finalists Juve now with the master finalist CR in their team. Flopped in 3 of 4 finals that Ronaldo guy, such a match with JJuve

City to get destroyed by Barca in the SFs and flop in the league

Higs to take Milan to CL places

Neymar to win the league with PSG but to leave at the end of the season because the spotlight is on Kylian. I expect a move to Italy / China

And i (very) rarely hype youth players btw, much to the point that i despise youth level football

So that accusation on me isnt valid imo

I said fanbases in general online

didn't mention any names

I know you Juve lads on GL are humble, honest and certainly not prone to hyping random youth scrubs and ending up with pie on your face :coffee:

and I certainly couldn't find a few dozen examples if I spent 5 minutes looking

Nothing wrong in hyping 1 or 2 players every now and then even if they dont turn out as expected

This is atleast better than periodically hyping your whole team only to end up getting twatted when it matters most by numpty sides

I think it depends on how much hype you give them but you also have to check the source. There will always be a few numpties saying Lemina is the new Pogba, Rugani the next Chiellini, I don't consider those representative of how a fanbase feels

It's more kneejerk reacting than anything, which is the GL norm after all

Young players tend to excite more because they usually come from relative anonymity

It's basically like saying don't be excited, one @mole is enough.

Hyping prospects is awesome. Most of the time, it never works out but those rare moment it does, you get to tell a fool "I told you so".

I love hyping young players. It started with Jay Spearing :wub: whom I thought would become the next Javier Mascherano drunken . Those were the days.
