I was thinking the same thing ..but will Verratti come up and play superb on top lvl( champions league or rivalry matches vs bayern etc?- i am Dortmund..i'd sell Poli on if you're not that impressed with him, grab Verratti and take your 18m profit
Well Poli is definitely a player who can cut it at the top level but maybe not for your system..? I do rate Verratti higher than Poli and he certainly could win the match with an assist but really those aren't the players I would be looking to win the match for you. Think Xavi or Xabi Alonso or Pirlo or Lucas at Liverpool, they rarely rarely win a match in the last minute of a game, however they are the ones who control the match for your team, retaining possession, smart decisive passes, controlling tempo, and finally feeding the ball to the match winners. While all of those players do have match winning assists or sometimes wonder goals its the way the set up the whole match that makes them so valuable. Just like how for Dortmund in real life Sahin didn't really win them a lot of matches on his own but he set up Gotze or Lewandowski or the rest, and he continually recycled possession and found them over and over again letting them do the damage.I was thinking the same thing ..but will Verratti come up and play superb on top lvl( champions league or rivalry matches vs bayern etc?- i am Dortmund..
Or will he be another decent player like Poli was the past 3-4 years ..
I really need an odd player that can make the difference in tough matches with a pass, an assist or an unpredictable goal) where Poli was just ok averaging 7.0-7.2 but never won me any top game with his ability ..
Reus on the right? what happened to Grosskreutz and blaszczykowski? they are pretty solid there.Well I do have gotze and gundogan.
Gotze is my main AML inside forward though while gundo is my starter in DLP position i search a good replacement as Verratti ..
So u suggest Verratti over Poli in DLP role ?
Also forgot to mention the other mc is BWM that is more defensive oriented ..
Oh mate thanks for your analysis !Reus on the right? what happened to Grosskreutz and blaszczykowski? they are pretty solid there.
if i were i would still try to move Poli and get Verratti to replace him. If you are intent on keeping Gotze on the left he can play there with Gundogan in the middle and Verratti and Bender (or whoeever) behind the front 4. if you want to move Gotze to the middle and find a winger I would look for a left footed RAM and swap Gundogan to the DLP role and Reus to LAM, then you wouldn't need Verratti unless you want him for depth.
Actually my team right now 4rth season in:IMO it would look best like this
but it will still be great the way you run it! Leitner and Bittencourt are beasts as well though Leitner i think ends up better as a DLP and Bittencourt can play all 3 AM spots.
Sure thing mate .have a look to see how albin ekdal and dennis praet have devolped could be very good and save you alot of money and cheaper wages
