    What gundogan has done to warrent starting over Bernardo at LCM or Foden blows my mind

    Most lethargic inconsistent player in a Guardiola team Ive ever seen

    I honestly don’t think your ban will be overturned—at least not completely. I think you’ll be banned from European competition for one year rather than two, which isn’t disastrous

    Feigning sponsorship money through rich owners is exactly what FFP is there to prevent. They could make an example of you with nasty consequences. I’m very intrigued whether the FA will be as harsh as UEFA with their punishment

    Dang no Kun? I love Jesus but I hope he won’t be turning water into wine today, his movement & build-up participation will be key as Bernardo & Mahrez are gonna be seeing a lot of that ball. This is a very cautious team Pep is sending out, we’ll have to wait and see how this plays out.

    Midfield is gonna be a war, I had a feeling Kroos was gonna see the pine as no way in hell he can stop KDB. Fede & Luka gonna have to be at their most mobile to break through the waves. I’m praying this will be Vinícius’ breakout moment, our offense is gonna live or die on the sword depending on his performance.

    I can’t help but feel that Pep often overthinks these big games. I’m very surprised at Aguero being on the bench

    Don’t worry my beloved Owl, I don’t think those projections are correct. Vini will be roaming the left + linking with Benz along with Isco in the hole/joining the midfield as Fede is playing as an auxiliary right midfielder today. It’ll resemble something of a 442-451 on defense.

    Whatever we did, loophole or not, Im sure we did it legally. Part of our arguement Im sure will be PSG, Bayern, Real, and Barca's corruption going on without an eye being batted. Our owners would not be this confident if we were going to lose
    I read its a Bernardo false 9 and Jesus out left which is interesting. And Vinicius will be RW versus Mendy which will be a good matchup.
    Vinicius vs Mendy and Isco vs Walker are better matchups

    Vintage chess match, pretty much a heavyweight fight where no one has landed that ko just yet.

    Even while City’s plan has been sabotaged, they still generate clear cut chances, such is the danger any team with KDB in it imposes. Madrid’s high press stifled a lot of what City normally throws at other teams, but we couldn’t generate much thanks to some very solid defending from City’s line. Needless to say Madrid’s had a lot of crucial interventions during City's 2nd phase of possession before those killer combinations happen.

    Shame about Laporte, although now they have a better passer to avert the press, the 2nd has so many question marks into what will play out. Every substitute will be critical, it’s coming down to that.

    Yeah this was intense, 2nd half was defined by which team could manage the tempo better. Initially City spread out very well and pinned us back as our press wasn’t there anymore. Then a mistake by Walker and a brilliant play by Vini led to the lead and our best spell in the game, vintage Real doing those “little” intangibles to control the game that led to our previous successes...

    But like I mentioned before, those subs were gonna be crucial. Vini should have never came off and then KDB performed a miracle, Ramos blew it in his marking and suddenly the pendulum swung back. Sterling came in and torched Carva and that was it. We lost it from there and now Ramos won’t be at the Etihad.

    This Real team isn’t it, not yet at least. Pep read this game very well and all credit for the win. I think you guys will be through but I hope we can replicate a strong performance again there.
