    Who is best placed to succeed this season?

    Imagine you don't support any of the top 6 teams and are trying to objectively evaluate their chances to have success this season. What would be your pick? The most obvious answer is Liverpool. But Liverpool have bad injuries to their 1st choice CBs and are already out of the league cup. Will...

    Blindspots

    1. Ederson is a crowd favourite but has been inconsistent since the start of last season apart from his ball distribution. He is rarely criticised despite being one of our worst players in some of the big games last season (e.g. Manure away in the league, Lyon). Hope Steffen is good enough to...

    Best CB combo in the CL?

    I like Garcia but throwing him against Real, Juve, Bayern, PSG...might not be the best idea. Too young, lacks both experience and physical attributes for that level. So, who is the best option to partner Laporte? Fernandinho? Not a CB and the same player anymore. Still, his experience might...

    Energy and Pace

    It's becoming undeniable that Liverpool have raised the bar regarding work rate. Whether they are doing it with legal methods is a theme for another discussion. Thing is that our team lacks a bit of energy and pace. With Sane being out we have only one really quick player in midfield and attack...

    Things to look forward to this season

    Injuries, losses, VAR decisions have seriously dampened the mood for many City fans. But there are nice things to look forward to this season. First, we expect Laporte and Sane back in February or even late January. Give them 5-6 weeks to regain form and then, hopefully without other bad...

    7,8,9...

    7 points off the top in early January, 2019. Champions. 8 points off the top in April, 2012. Champions. 9 points off the top in November, 2019... Many things are against us: injuries, PGMOL..., but we can do it again. Pep is not one to give up on the league in November/December. Liverpool...

    New leaders

    We've had great characters and leaders during our league winning campaigns over the last 7-8 years. Some of them have already left (Hart, Zaba, Toure, Kompany...Delph was vocal in the dressing room too), others are going to leave over the next 20 months: Dave, Ferna and Kun. So, who can become...

    Another transitional season? No.

    We have two problems this season. The first are injuries to CBs which have seriously hurt us. But we have another problem as well. We have several aging players whose legs are not quite up to the task of playing highly dynamic football and can't press efficiently. This might be the season when...

    Your crazy but still somewhat realistic ultra-attacking formation

    now that Laporte and Sane are not available. Mine: ---------------------Ederson ----------------Ferna--------Rodri Cancelo---------------------------------Mendy --------------------Gundog --------------Bernie-------Kevin Sterling------------------------------------Jesus...

    What's the ceiling of this City team?

    What is the most it can achieve regarding (1) performances and (2) trophies? Naturally, the benchmark for a great team is Pep's Barcelona. Can Pep's City become as good as Pep's Barca? The obvious difference between both teams is Messi. Can Pep compensate for the absence of a Messi in this...
