    Dean reacted to Maldeika in Timo Werner   
    He actually only has 0.8 offsides during a match in the EPL whereas it was 1.6 times in the Bundesliga last season. On 90 minutes 0.9 to 1.4. I cannot tell how many goals were ruled out by var the seasons before - but he had even a lot more offsides in Germany than he had now. And the referees in the EPL fall easier for him drawing fouls than they do in Germany especially since his dive against Schalke that caused the "Werner is a son of a bitch"-shouts everywhere.

    Yeah. A key factor for me is that, given his heavy involvement at the business end of the pitch, only minor adjustments are required for a significant potential impact (goals). We’re talking fractions of seconds in the timing of his runs, for example.

    Me too, I have seen enough already (especially when at RBL 34 Goals in all competitions) to know that last season was a blip and that Timo will come good when his confidence returns. Would love to see him playing alongside Lewandowski 💙

    Give him another season, we should all be wary of giving up on players, this season has proven that, he will probably have stiffer competition next season, who knows that might ignite him, although i admit he has a lot to prove.

    I must have been one of the only people who wasent phased when Thiago got injured and he came on. Bossed the defense as he has done all year.
    From Academy to Champions League Winner. Well done, start of many for these boys.

    Yes I agree on the latter. Also, everyone remember how urgently we needed to ship in an entire new defence last season? Obviously Silva had a big impact but the improvement has been mainly “organic” - existing players massively upping their game. If our current attacking players can improve by the same degree next season as the defence this season (not unrealistic imo), we will be formidable.

    Rumours coming out that Inter isn’t going to sell Lukaku. Thank god for that.
    Now we can try our luck on Haaland or Kane. I’m even happy to wait for a season if it means we sign Haaland, I’m pretty confident Werner won’t be as bad in front of goal next season.

    I thought we would win after losing to Leicester in the FA final just bet on the wrong score.
    I think Tuchel did the decent thing then and played Kepa yet Mendy would have saved that shot and then after that thought we would beat City yet not sure how.
    Surprised Fernandinho didn't start, surprised how good James was marshalling Sterling and also Chilwell on Mahrez.
    Werner's form did not improve with playing in the final his finishing was still atrocious and yet we had luck in other ways, Rudiger's freak bodycheck on KDB taking out their best creative player if that is not luck I don't know what is.
    Havertz's goal had more fortune, in the EPL think that would have been offside courtesy of him pointing forwards indicating where he wanted Mount's ball.
    The other instance of luck like Azpi's clearance from under the goal posts, and people diving on the ground to cut off crosses in the penalty area. 
    Great to see the team celebrating afterwards looking like a real unified squad, even Kepa putting an arm around Aguero...........

    Dean reacted to LongtimerLurker in Official Thomas Tuchel   
    Ofc it's easy for us to say now that he's done it but, I genuinely don't think any other coach could have come in and done such a good job in such a short time. The level of coaching has been so high. It's funny because while the narrative was in the favour of City in hindsight this game always favoured by us.
    B/c of our position when he took over pretty much all of our games had been to an effect 'cup finals'. Looking back at how many tightly contested games we played this season under TT this final resembled what we had been experiencing all season.
    Every game we played this season with Tuchel was with the pressure to win. Whereas in terms of high stakes, this game was probably the most pressure I think City have ever felt as a club aside from maybe the title winning game way back in 2012. This season I think despite playing knockout games in the ucl, city didn't really have to play to the level we did under TT. City was so used to just winning without too much resistance and while that takes mental fortitude it's not the same as needing to win at all costs.

    I didn't bother to post anything here after the game. It was celebration time. Congrats to the team.
    Tuchel plan work to perfection but of course I have to give prop to our defense, we gave city nothing.
    I don't remember Mendy had to make any save but his ability to catch cross help us big time. 
    Chilwell absolutely nullified mahrez.James coped very2 well against Sterling. 
    Azpi was brilliant once again. The so called he is not captain material is absolutely bs. Silva was his brilliant self and huge shutout to chris as he replaced silva brilliantly. Rudi was a rockw. He was literally a rock,you can ask kdb about it. 
    Jorginho distributed the ball very well. And now Kante, my MOTM and our one true wc player. I really don't have to say much. He destroyed kdb, won header in our box, carried the ball forward, fed Havertz, and he won header in city box. An absolute masterclass. 
    Our three attackers. The goal was wonderful combination from our three attackers. Mount with wonderful through ball, werner with dummy/channel run to create space and Havertz with the goal. More importantly defensively all three worked really hard and help us defensively. 
     
    Ps:
    Shut out to @axman2526 friend, he almost win big, Werner had 3 excellent chances.

    I love Dave. Such a dependable, intelligent player both in defence and attack. Rarely makes a mistake, almost always makes the right decision, and on occasion pops up with a key goal or reminds us he has some sublime ball skills too (THAT moment in the second leg vs Real). The Grealish incident made me love Dave even more.
     
    I think he’s been a great captain. Us not winning stuff comes down to us not being as good as during the glory days. Simple as that. I’m not sure having a more charismatic (or whatever some people think it is that Dave lacks) captain would have changed much.
