The VIP2 Dossier - Talent of 2012-2013

Recommended Posts

Right gents this thread is for anyone who has spotted decent players throughout the forth coming season but please give a little reasoning as to why you have been taken by their performance, what game you saw, what club and position they play for.


Name: Jeff LOUIS

Club: Nancy

Age: 19

Position: ST, LF, RF

Report: Lille (17.08.12)

Energetic front man who carries a lot of power in his upper body but what impressed me was his closing down of Mavuba but also the back four of Lille giving them no time to start from the back.

When on the ball he wasn't wasteful in picking his options showing he's a direct threat with his powerful runs assisted by a high level of technical ability in his dribbling and eye for goal.

He looks a good prospect this year.
