Just realized I posted this in wrong thread!

@futbol_bill wrote:Oh what a shame, the team that bought all those superstars and were going to dominate everyone have lost again! And how many of those superstars played today? And how many goals did they produce?

And the team that was supposed to be their only opposition was led by someone called Zinchenko!!

But these are BIG teams because they have unlimited money!!!

At least PSG field a lineup designed to supplement Messi’s laziness as the CM on his side usually shifts to a RM off the ball in a 4-4-2 to compensate.

That is already a problem but there’s a reason City kept switching the ball to the RW and not the LW. Neymar did his Messi impression off the ball today. He was tucking in narrow next to Mbappe rather than supporting Mendes. Neymar usually did the dirty work in MSN with the flank. Hell I saw him defending deeper against Ligue 1 scrubs than I saw him today.

I don’t even think it’s a Poch problem. Which manager is going to convince them to defend? Neymar has injuries after injuries. Messi was lazy when he was 25 and now he’s 34. Mbappe has the legs but it makes sense to have him higher up the pitch as an outlet.

It’s true they’ve only played 7 games together, but unless they fix up their movement off the ball they’re getting knocked out against the first top team they face.

They were better last season. and even Neymar runs 3 times more without the ball. Messi is half sleep during PSG matches lol.

or maybe this is the end of him. he is 34. good career though.

It doesn’t make sense because City would guarantee that Ronaldo would win another Ballon d’or too.

I don’t think his workrate is any different to him at Barca in the last few years. Main difference is he’s playing as a RW in a 4-3-3 rather than a 4-4-2, so his flank being open is more obvious compared to him strolling through the middle. The play also doesn’t run through him the way it does at Barca so he gets less touches.

If we are honest with ourselves Messi isn’t going to be the balancer between him and Neymar defensively. If they’re defending on the flanks one of them has to move to the midfield 4 off ball. The problem is neither do.

I think he acted out of emotion. Ronaldo has tons of money and he manages it well. The difference was not significant. But I think sir alex calling him and him thinking he can raise a struggling a team.. he def acted out of emotion

serious. Did zinchenko really play as a number 9 Laughing

He was LCM. It looked more like a rotation between Gundogan and Bernardo as F9.

He moved in and out. City played 4-3-3 on defence and 3-5-2 or 3-6-1 in attack. it was weird lol.

City plays better with a false 9 because it gives them more control so their general play is better.

It comes at the cost of scoring. They lack the presence of a striker in the box and miss a lot more chances then they should. I guess that’s why Pep wanted Kane so bad. Kane has the technical ability to play as a false 9 and is a proven goalscorer too.

It goes both ways. if they sign a classic number 9 they will create less chances. Pep is not an idiot. he knows the only way his team improves is to sign a striker who can create, press, come deep or move into the wings and score altogether. like Benzema or Kane.

Mamad, the 9 at city really doesn’t have a lot of responsibility to create lol. That burden is on the wingers. Their 9 is just basically linking up and being a mobile CF. Honestly that role is very sacrificial the way pep plays it. It’s not the messi style false 9

And @ cas I’m not surprised, oh well he’s in a mid table team barely dragging them forward lol

How does Mbappe miss a clear chance every game from a Messi pass. He should have 2x the goals he does already.

Because no attacker has a 100% conversion rate? You guys are just fixated on Messi and are constantly in throw-under-the-bus mode in case things go wrong Laughing
