We are now in week nine of the soccer calendar, and at this point, you can get a good idea of how the season will play out.
You can also see which players are starting to emerge as the the best in Europe, and that is what interests us here. We want the top 15 players and we want to use movie quotes to rank them all.
This week, we have asked for a little help since 2001.
“How can you do that?”
“I can do whatever I want. And so can you.” (Donnie Darko)
On a dead ball, James Ward-Prowse can do whatever he wants.
The Southampton man pocketed another free kick and added an assist in his side’s ill-fated 3-2 loss to Manchester United. He has already made three free throws this season and is not over yet.
“Scared, Harry? It’s okay. I felt the same before my first game. “
“I really don’t remember. I got a bludger to the head two minutes later. I woke up in the hospital a week later.” (Harry potter and the Philosopher’s Stone)
Ibrahimovic must have received a thigh bludger because he missed both AC Milan games this week.
“All of this was predetermined thousands of years ago.”
“But how does the story end?”
“Ah, only the trip is written, not the destination.”
“Convenient.” (The mummy returns)
We may not know if Real Sociedad will end up winning the title, but we are enjoying Mikel Oyarzabal taking his team on that journey.
He drew his team from the penalty spot in a 1-1 draw with Villarreal, leaving him at the top of the La Liga scorers table.
“It will be like in the movies. Pretending to be someone else. “(Mulholland Drive)
Has anyone told James Tavernier of the Rangers that no Really a forward?
The right-back already has 15 goals and ten assists in all competitions this season, with two of his goals coming in wins over Aberdeen and Galatasaray this week.
Is a right back.
“I don’t like this ending.” (Moulin Rouge!)
Just when it looked like Feyenoord’s Steven Berghuis was ready to start another scoring streak, he was left blank in his team’s 1-1 draw with Utrecht.
He’s still at the top of the Eredivisie scorers list, but just barely.
‘A magician is never late, Frodo Baggins. Nor is he early. It comes precisely when it wants. (The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring)
It took Thomas Muller 86 minutes to find the net in Bayern Munich’s 1-1 draw with Atlético de Madrid, but hey, better late than never.
He also intervened with an assist in his team’s 3-1 win over Stuttgart, bringing his current season tally to six.
“Listen. If we can’t break the ice, how about we drown it? (Wonderful mind)
22-year-old midfielder Pedro Goncalves has been choking on goals since joining Sporting CP this summer to replace Bruno Fernandes.
In seven appearances, Goncalves has scored nine goals and one assist, all of which have come in his last five games.
Speaking of Fernandes …
“Nobody asks to be a hero, it just turns out that way sometimes.” (Black Hawk below)
‘Hero’ hardly does Fernandes justice. Who knows where United would be if they hadn’t signed him in January.
It was his goal that kicked off the comeback in a 3-2 win over Southampton, and the midfielder has already reached the double digits of the season.
“So what were you doing?”
“Evolving”. (Jurassic Park III)
Romelu Lukaku has evolved so much that he is almost unrecognizable from the striker who struggled at United.
He rested for Inter’s victory over Sassuolo, but returned to lead his team past Borussia Monchengladbach, scoring two goals in the second half to ensure Inter’s dream of qualifying for the next round of the Champions League continues.
“I miss you like the sun misses the flower. As the sun misses the flower in the depths of winter. Instead of beauty directing its light to the heart, it hardens like the frozen world to which your absence has banished me. “(A gentleman’s tale)
Dortmund fans will miss Erling Haaland for the next few weeks after the forward suffered a hamstring injury.
That’s obviously bad news, but at least it gave us a chance to see his ridiculous legs when he posted an update on Twitter.
“Make a wish.”
“It has already come true.” (Artificial intelligence AI)
Son’s dream of seeing Tottenham top the Premier League table has already come true.
The 0-0 draw with Chelsea ensured the Spurs returned to the top of the mountain, but ensured they didn’t go a week without a goal by scoring in the 3-3 tie with LASK midweek.
Ask any broker. Any real broker. It doesn’t matter if you win by an inch or a mile. Winning is winning. “(The fast and the furious)
Atlético de Madrid may not always be the most entertaining team to watch, but their streak of results cannot be argued with.
At the forefront of their recent success has been Felix, who scored another goal in a 1-1 draw with Bayern.
“Ten should do it, don’t you think? You think we need one more? You think we need one more. Okay, we’ll get one more.” (Ocean’s Eleven)
750 professional goals should do it, don’t you think?
That’s the milestone Ronaldo reached this week by scoring in Juventus’ 3-0 win over Dynamo Kyiv. 130 of them have been headed, which is just mental.
“Shh. Do you hear that? It is the wind of change. “(Monsters inc.)
For the first time since Week 2, Harry Kane is not at the top of the power rankings.
It was a quiet week for the Spurs man, who was neutralized by Chelsea and then rested against LASK after sustaining an injury.
“That’s enough, Donkey. That’s enough.” (Shrek)
The champion of the 2019/20 power ranking returns to the top.
Lewandowski found the back of the net in Bayern’s win over Stuttgart, so he still has more goals than games played this season.
Truth be told, that’s hardly worth getting excited about with Lewandowski these days. That is normal for him.
