  1. I'm good, stats not the hill I'm ready to die on in any scenario 😎
  2. That epic birdy can take down Sarri and Jorginho any day I think.
  3. 3:2 victory with some great goals, M.-Savic showed his class, Immobile had 2 assists and Pedro scored a classic goal.
  4. On the other hand if we don't win the mass media will proclaim another crisis!
  5. Half time 2:1, great derby so far, vintage Pedro goal.
  6. Kai should ideally be behind Rom in a 4-4-1-1 IMO. That way you get the best of both of them. But Tuchel won't change this system. In any case the squad needs more time together, I'm sure the same thing is true with Man City regarding Grealish.
  7. Sarri hugging Jose with a smile on his face, Jose more serious. Tammy and Pedro starting for their teams, Sarri with the 4-3-3 of course and Jose 4-2-3-1. The Olympico derby about to start.
  8. 21/22 Ankle Injury Sep 9, 2021 - 17 days 5 21/22 Corona virus Aug 18, 2021 Aug 30, 2021 12 days 2 20/21 Muscle Injury Nov 3, 2020 Nov 27, 2020 24 days 4 20/21 Quarantine Oct 31, 2020 Nov 3, 2020 3 days 1 20/21 Hamstring Injury Aug 2, 2020 Oct 4, 2020 63 days 7 20/21 Calf Strain Aug 1, 2020 Aug 22, 2020 21 days 2 19/20 Calf Injury Jun 29, 2020 Jun 30, 2020 1 days - 19/20 Tear in the abductor muscle Jan 2, 2020 Jun 6, 2020 156 days 12 19/20 Muscle bruise Dec 28, 2019 Dec 31, 2019 3 days 1 19/20 Groin Injury Nov 10, 2019 Nov 22, 2019 12 days - 19/20 Arch pain Oct 2, 2019 Oct 2, 2019 0 days 1 Since he came he missed 14 games 2 seasons in a row due to injury, now in his 3rd season he already missed 7 games due to injury. Not sure if Tuchel owes an explanation or Pulisic himself...
  9. Idk bro, prefer to just move on. The very thought about not having Mendy away vs this man city team makes me wonder if we will beat them this season...
  10. He needs a partner in attack. Werner, Havertz, Pulisic... Anyone that can take on a player? If we struggle to score I would even suggest to play a 4-4-2 and counter attack teams with Lukaku+Werner or Havertz behind Lukaku...
  11. It actually does guarantee a whole lot, Man United don't even have an above average manager but they keep spending and keep getting top 4, Pep demands a whole lot in order to win you something and he was by all means at the right place at the right time during the best Spanish generation which had the majority of players in Barcelona. But OK we can agree to disagree, you can put up a list of the Barcelona managers over the years and 95% of them only won big titles while they were managing them, Pep went to Bayern that has an almost guaranteed domestic title, sure he's better than Pellegrini with more PL titles and he's up there with the top PL managers but that doesn't make him the best manager of all time at all. He inherited first the best Spanish team, then the best German team before coming to Man City where he spent how much money? On the other hand Conte in his first season won the PL and Tuchel with a few months with us denied Man City the CL title which they have been chasing for a long time now... To me Pep isn't the best manager of all time, at least not yet.
  12. Our squad has to be more bold if we want to win the PL. No way will we be able to win enough games while focusing on not conceding goals but at the same time not being a counter-attacking team. Good teams have the quality to mark our target man and then it looks like we don't really have anyone that can step up. Conte won the league playing defensively but he made us a counter-attacking force with D.Costa and Hazard. Now we have Lukaku that is a great striker but where is that support in attack? Lukaku had in Inter L.Martinez, here he doesn't have a partner yet.
  13. Take away his investment and the fact that he inherited the team of Barcelona that could win regardless of who was the manager and he's not really among the top 5.
  14. I agree but this isn't on the players. Tuchel thinks that he can win every game 1:0. Which team will have the better odds of creating something, a fluid attack with creative players such as KDB, Grealish, Foden that are players that make runs and tons of assists or a team with Kante, Jorginho, Kovacic that at their best have less than 5 assists per season each? I thought that for once Tuchel will want to have an open game where his back 3 will actually influence the game but nope. Pep's team just moves around, our formation with 0 creativity can't solve that, sure Man City gets some yellow cards but this is why I was dissapointed when I saw that Hakimi was going to PSG, our current system is based on discipline and running and a good team like Man City just needs to stay calm for about 15 minutes out of 90 in order to not concede. Playing 50-50 games will look like this more often than not because as long as Lukaku is being shut down we don't have the fire power to score goals and that's disappointing. With Kounde we could have switched to a 4-3-3/4-2-3-1 but Tuchel is going to die on this 3-5-2 hill no matter what happens.
  15. Struggling in PSG from what I saw.
  16. I predict that @Munkworth will be just like me, predicting a 5 goals game. Amazing.
  17. Pep historically doesn't have the best record against us in general. 1.35 points per match in 20 games played, he has a better record against Man United and Real Madrid at this point and the one team that comes close is Liverpool that he played 7 times less (1.38ppm). Against Tuchel he won 3 times with Bayern when Tuchel was at Mainz and Borussia but that's all, 3 wins and 2 draws and now 3 loses since Tuchel has been here. It might seem on the surface that Tuchel isn't playing any mind games, he said that it's not about him vs Pep but about their teams, he then went on saying that all 3 previous matches were 50-50. But if Pep is also casual about this rivarly as Tuchel apparently wants it to be, we might win again. Pep commented in an interview Tuchel's tactic prior to the CL final and some hailed Pep as he seemed to have nailed Chelsea down, he "knew everything", yet when all was said and done Pep was powerless and he lost again. Maybe, just maybe Tuchel is the type of person that Pep doesn't know how to deal with since he loves to be in this very comfortable environment as the manager and Tuchel is granting him that. "Here is my team, this is how we play, you are so great Pep I learned from you so much" - so Pep might overlook or undermine some details here and there and Tuchel can once again end up winning, all with a smile on his face. Let's hope that's the case.
  18. This game might just be one of those tough derby games with little goals but I believe that due to the previous 3 meetings that there will be goals, lots of them.
  19. Mason is never injured but he played through injury and even took a penalty, I think this is a minor injury. Which is fine because he has been in a bad form in the most recent games anyway.
  20. I want to see more of him in the near future if possible, I thought he did a decent job in the first half and then just built up on that in the second half. For a tall player he has great footwork and he made the most of the possession he had, I'm sure almost all of his passes and carries ended up in the final third, he could have had an assist too.
  21. Batman forever was a nice movie, it was meant for kids in the first place. Great actors and Jim Carrey was a good Riddler.
