Benteke is going to boss Stoke, can really see him hitting the ground running and banging in a few goals on his debut.

Man U players get an extra yard leniency at both ends of the pitch.

Essentially, if a player has a shot at goal and a team-mate in an offside position makes a play for the ball even if they do not touch it the goal will now be disallowed.

I don't believe this is entirely correct.

If a player is in an offside position they cannot make a play for the ball period. This also means that if a player is offside and he sees a defender going to play the ball he cannot then go press/defend him.

Re: English Football 2015/16

Worst I have seen Bentaleb play by some distance. Dier has done ok all things considered (he is a CB. not a RB. Definitely not a CM)

Mason for Dier at HT. Tempted to bring Alli in, but the last thing we need is to concede in the first 5 mins of the second half.

Spurs need a massive upgrade in the middle of the park if they are going to get anything more then 5th-8th this year.

bentaleb is fantastic and one of the best young CMs in the world. he is going to have a hard time with a CB next to him though.

Re: English Football 2015/16

Ashley Young really is a limited footballer when he is up against a strong / quick defender.
