Is De Jong at his best when he's the deepest man? He still plays alongside Busquets most of the time at Barca, right?

He does. De Jong is not a DM. He can play there in a pinch but then you aren't getting the best out of him. He's always done his best work when played alongside a defensive #6 - he's much more similar to a player like Thiago than Busquets.

That's what I figured. He strikes me as someone who- assuming his mindset is right- would be a good replacement for Pogba in the role we've been asking him to play and an obvious upgrade on Fred and McTom, in being a midfield linkman who can handle the defensive responsibility and keep the passing ticking, but he ultimately doesn't solve the actual biggest tactical problem we have.

Just wait a year and join the food fight to get him as a free agent. 

That's clearly the message there. Gnabry or his agents demanded a higher payday than Bayern are willing to offer. And this is pretty much their last change to sell for a fee.

Thiago and Fabinho starting. On the one hand good news as the team’s miles better with them in but about half the side’s probably carrying a bit of an injury now so it’s a gamble.

Well, in what other game do you run that risk?

CL Final, biggest game of the season, literally the final game of the season before the squad buggers off to the beach (as short as it is this year).

And you have 5 subs. So you should be alright.

Apparently Liverpool fans without tickets decided to overrun security.

GL seperating legit ticket owners among the Liverpool fans from the folks that just rushed security.

Soilent said something about watching the game with friends, didn't he? Just sayin... :D

 

Further delay. New kick off time 21:30, thank you soilent.

Delay at the entrance. Still too many fans stuck outside the stadium.

Zombie hordes are based off of Eurocommies trying to get into stadiums.
