Issue is that KdB-Rodri-Gundogan just doesn't work, I swear I've been complaining about for a long time. Not sure why, maybe lack of pace and energy? Maybe I underestimated Fernandinho greatness when prime David Silva-Fernandinho-KdB worked just fine. Swear even with Fernandinho those two (gundo/kdb) seem to not be able to function as well as they do individually. I notice with KdB playing that others seems to relax more and just wait for KdB to create something. We've been the our best football during his injury.

It helped that Bernardo seem to have come back from the shadow ream after Pep was forced to play him every week. As Rodri has made improvement in his second year as well. Positioning has improved and doesn't get caught out as much as last season. Seems like without Bernardo running around like a madman with infinite stamina makes up for Rodri immobility and midfield play is great this season. In regards to what to do with Kevin, would rather bench him or play him as a false 9 than to leave out Bernardo. I have no confidence in KdB-Rodri-Gundogan Midfield 3 in the league and specially in the CL against top teams.

Gundogan and Bernardo need to be the CM's in the CL, but De Bruyne is your best player. If he isn't playing midfield, then he should play false 9. He's done well there this season IMO. He's a better finisher than Jesus.

Jesus needs to lose playing time. Preferably literally all of it. They would be a much better team without his sorry ass on the squad

Jesus has more presence in the box + better workrate. Honestly, his best City game was against Madrid when he played LW. What a performance that was. One of my favorite CL performances in the last 5 years. If he played for a counter-attacking team in a two-man forward line, he'd be appreciated a lot more. City should offer him + cash for Felix.

Just come to realize, but obviously Man C has a decent chance for the treble? Definitely on fire and on course, if Pep doesnt fk up in the CL and overcome Bayern Razz

they have a chance at the quadruple mate, they play the Carabao Cup final next month

Sterling - KdB - Foden
Bernardo - Rodri - Gundogan

that would be my CL attack-midfield for City. Pretty self explanatory... KdB false 9, dropping deep, linking up, making runs into the box. Sterling making diagonal runs when KdB drops in. Foden is basically a 10 on the right side with Walker overlapping. Gundogan making third man runs into the box. And Bernardo doing Bernardo tingz.

Fofana and Tielemans are levels above anything Utd have in midfield or the back.

How is it that Man U gets outplayed and are generally pretty average and gets outplayed by likes of Leicester, but always manage to beat Man C who are miles ahead of everyone else? Football even after watching for so long, can be puzzling at times Razz

For Man C, it really is case of Pep deciding which of all of his talented on form players to play in order to get the best performances and results in the run in. If he gets it right this time and luck is on his side, he really could achieve another historic year, treble, quadruple, or even more.

That sarcastic cheer when someone skies a shot :bow:

All Chelsea btw. Leciester are sitting in and hitting long to the front two. Even then, Chelsea have managed to find space behind their midfield and force their back three to retreat.

Yeah tuned in the last ten minutes and saw Leicester with plenty of possession but little bite. A nice pass from Tielemans giving Vardy a tough chance but nothing other than that. Not a lot of chances for Chelsea, either, as they lacked having the ball.
