    #47 | Phil Foden - 2021/22 Performances

    Well our midfielders can still attack. It depends on the set up. Bernardo has been attacking along with Grealish on the left in the final 3rd. Grealish gets the ball on the wing and plays in balls to Bernardo who makes runs toward the byline effectively becoming the left winger at that point...

    #27 | João Cancelo - 2021/22 Performances

    I think it depends. Against a team that has good counter attacking like Leicester you need Walker. Leicester are fine with letting us have the ball and then breaking quickly with all the space in behind. Last season against Liverpool Pep went with Zinchenko and Cancelo. The thinking here is...

    I would still start Jesus in those games especially against Chelsea because of his work rate off the ball. He's one of the best at pressing, counter pressing and tracking back to defend. I think back to that CL game against Real Madrid, Gabby was our best player that day.

    The thing with Sterling is that he needs someone to set him into space for him to create. An example is when we played Newcastle and Sterling was on the right. The ball went to KDB, then to Cancelo who slipped a nice pass to put Sterling into a dangerous area. He then cut it back for Gundogan...

    #27 | João Cancelo - 2021/22 Performances

    He put in a few good balls on the left too. It's clear to me that with Kev out Pep wants him to be the deep lying playmaker as another to create while Gundo floats into the box. I do think that because he's so gifted he thinks he can get away with nutmegging and fancy flicks at times. I feel...

    #21 | Ferran Torres - 2021/22 Performances

    For the Spurs game I put that down more to us not being able to move the ball better. We had Mendy and Ake who aren't as good in possession as Cancelo and Laporte. He didn't get much service because Spurs were pressing only when the ball crossed the halfway line, winning it and countering...

    #10 | Jack Grealish - 2021/22 Performances

    He's exactly what we need from the left. You can see for the goal that Jesus scored. A lot of people want a winger with pace, but that means nothing if you don't make the right decisions. His ability to time a perfect 5 yard ball into the path of a teammate is actually more difficult than...

    Well that's like, you know, your opinion man and nobody fucks with the Jesus!

    #14 | Aymeric Laporte - 2021/22 Performances

    I really hope this guy isn't pushed out the door. You can argue who's the better partner for Dias between him and Stones, but if one of them are out the difference between Laporte and Ake is stark. Laporte's distribution is amazing and if you look at the Spurs game, Ake's inability to keep and...

    #9 | Gabriel Jesus - 2021/22 Performances

    Exactly what we've been missing from a winger since Sane left. He has the ability to get behind the defence with his pace and can cross it into a dangerous area. Something none of our other wingers have. Torres can cross it, but can't get behind the defence. Sterling can get behind, but...

    Lautaro Martinez

    I wouldn't put too much stock in Barca's valuation of players seeing how they bought Griezmann, Coutinho and Dembele all over 100mil a piece.

    #20 | Bernardo Silva - 2021/22 Performances

    What I'd like to see, although I don't know if Pep would do it, is just play Cancelo as a midfielder with Walker at RB in the event Kev is out through rest or injury. Cancelo has great technical skill, even better than a lot of midfielders. He inverts in the midfield anyway to progress the...

    #20 | Bernardo Silva - 2021/22 Performances

    When you say this you have to include Cancelo who played most of the time with Bernardo because he was the actual creator in the side when Kev was out.

    Lionel Messi

    Yeah but what you are talking about in regards to his marketability are 2 different issues. He would still be very marketable.

    It's Quiet Thread 15 - Txiki Blinders

    Yes. He's the definition on a flying fullback. He'll fly forward on an overlap and put a cross into a box. We have 3 types of fullbacks and all have their purposes. Walker is used mainly for his defence, but will go forward and put in a cross into the box. The inverted fullback like Zinch...

    United Thread - 2021/22

    What's the score on fees spent on defenders? Rags and all media like to go on about Pep's spending on defenders. Not hearing anything on how much they spent. Lindelof, Bailly, Slabhead, Wan-Bissaka, Varane, Dalot, Teles. Slabhead alone costs 80m. Am I forgetting anyone?

    Players who might improve us

    Dortmund offers young prospects guaranteed playing time. Don't think we can offer the same.

    Harry Kane

    TBF I don't remember Aguero scoring much from breaks. The only one of note I can recall is the one away to Napoli and it was only because Sane was taken down by the defender and Aguero who was trailing behind got onto it. We don't go on counter attacks much nowadays and if so they are usually...

    Jack Grealish

    Like I said Foden can't play there every game and what if he were to get injured? We could use more options. Foden could also possibly be the 3rd midfielder in the 8 position after De Bruyne and Gundogan if Bernardo were to leave. He's played there in a few cup games and could be ready to play...

    Jack Grealish

    It remains to be seen where he would play. IMO he'd be on the left wing simply because the systems is hard to grasp for midfielders. So just like Bernardo I think he'll play on the wing in the first season then gradually be put in midfield if he were to come. One thing is for sure is that...
