Football: winter break over

Recommended Posts

One angle made it look like a penalty, but a different camera showed no contact. Otamendi is definitely a liability as always, mind.

Sterling's form hasn't been great, but he's always especially bad against certain teams. His head's just not in the game; he dithers every time he receives the ball.

Why do I have any faith in Pep. I wish Alex was here to tell me that there is still hope

2 wins fellow Reds, TWO TWO... :grouphug:

A pity we didn't beat Watford, we could have won it at Goodison. Just imagine the state of the Everton fans! :laugh:

Anyway, looks like we could be wrapping it up against Palace at home.

City might drop more points before the derby.

City with Kdb > City without Kdb

Obviously this is true but it’s crazy how good they did last season when he was out for the majority of it

Their run of 18 wins to clinch the title also included a lot of narrow wins (just like Liverpool this season), plus Bernardo Silva   was immense in MF in KDB’s place.

Their attacking patterns were just working like clockwork last season, and teams rarely even tried to attack against them.

Oh yeah one thing I wanted to comment on that I appreciate about this 3-5-2 (ish) formation that Solskjaer's done, that Fergie used to do and none of our managers since have really managed the knack of, is that it's an assymetrical formation that really takes advantage of the players' styles. Using AWB's greater defensive ability to shuffle the whole defensive line across so Shaw can play in a hybrid sorta role that maximises his ability to play out from the back and pass while doesn't rely on his average crossing, pushes Williams forward even by WB standards so his defensive problems are covered for while his crossing is put to best use, and Martial and James being almost an offset front two with Williams covering back to fill in the gap that AWB's being less of an attacker leaves... it's really good.

Whether he can maintain that strength if the key players get injured and someone else has to cover will be a mark of how much he's really improving as a manager.
