    lol yeah tbh, FM is how I find out about some young and upcoming players too, that's how I first heard of Verratti. Borini even, I think I first bought him from Chelsea youth in like FM10 or something.

    However yeah that shouldn't be the be-all-end-all source to determine a footballer's worth

    close control and first touch like that makes me wanna jizz.

    The boy has a future at the very top of the game. I'm surprised a gamble was not taken on him by Italy for the the Euro's. He could have been helpful at keeping possession against Spain in that final.

    I'm guessing because he's like a young Pirlo and they don't need two of the same type of player on the pitch. But once Pirlo retires from the national team Verratti should probably slot right into that position.

    He also started out his career as an AM but was pushed further back exactly the same as Pirlo, he probably needs to improve a little defensively but i think i'll be watching alot of PSG this season as there team is very likeable & there first match was entertaining as hell.

    I think he is technically better than Pirlo and has more in him in terms of talent. But it depends of what he makes of it.
    May permanent peace be brought to the Arab world. My heart goes out to the families of those who have lost loved one(s). I wish and hope those who are creating religious, racial, regional, and tribal divisions among/within the Arab nations would be defeated in their quest for the destruction of the Middle East.

    this guy is so damn skillful/confident, when PSG becomes more popular i'm sure we'll see lots of videos for him, not many about atm.

    It wasn't the best game, he came on around the 60th minute mark & PSG then looked alot better, i was watching Milan-Juve so glanced over occasionally as it was on TV.
