Amongst footballing managerial 'Gods'
Excuses in early I see.
Nah, it is what most people that understand football see. Many people blindly claimed that this would be the best attack, but they didn't take into account the selfish ego of these players and also squad balance. If somehow, poch can make that work, he will be praised as an amazing coach and manager.

Surprised Herrera get ahead of wiljinaldum. No doubt that Herrera has been good for them so far this season though

It's hopeless, once again our brilliant manager leaves our best players in the bench.

The best midfielders and attackers we have this year (with the exception of Luis Diaz that is on fire) are all in the bench: Grujic, Vitinha and Fábio Vieira. Why? Because of reasons. Let's play mediocre players instead.
And as the left back Zaidu again, he is an horror show and this year we played in that position several other players including a newly bought left back (Wendell) and every single one of them was much much better. But no, here is he again in one of the most difficult games.

So let's hope our workhorse hoofball bus can get points again.
How's Grujic doing for you?

On paper that psg attack looks amazing, but as we have seen so far, to many ego among them and it so far appears unbalanced. They need more time to truly work out and get familiar with each other.

They also need to be more clinical. Mbappe, Messi and Neymar should be better finishers.
A smart manager should be able to get it to work, let's see if it happens.

So City start with Rodri as a CM away against fecking PSG including Messi, Neymar and Mbappe while we start McFred against at home against Villa.

At least Pep has the balls to take risks.

"Dominant clubs in their respective countries and the underlying common thing is their burning desire to win the CL"

No, I think it's the fact they both got bought by countries with unlimited money

0 - 0 draw with both PSG players in-fighting at the whistle and Pep having another dig or two at his club please.
