The rotation remains very short. Marco Farfan is off the injured list but Brandon Servania is questionable. I’ll go with Farfan for now but pencil in Nanu, or even Eddie Munjoma I suppose, if Coach Nico decides to protect Farfan a little longer.

Martin Paes – Man of the Match
I often wonder how good we could’ve been playing a 4-4-1-1 with Pepi and Jesus up top and Paxton/Facu in the middle, Velasco/Arriola out wide. Same back line.
– I predict that Jesus is gone in the winter transfer window. My guess 8-9M Euro with a 10% sell-on fee. So we’ll need a pair of Strikers. One DP level and hopefully one U22. I’m also predicting Hedges will retire this year. New kid and injuries. I hope he gets a job on the coaching staff. Marco will be the new Sporting Director after this season, but if I owned the club I would reach out to OP. Nobody understands the club better than OP but not sure if he’s done on the sidelines.
I have that same though all the time about Pepi/Jesus. *sigh*
