    Thiago Silva turns 36 next month. Why do you ask?

    Like Thiago to us and Gundo back to Klopp you mean?

    Lyon CL QF Pre-Match Thread (15/08/20)

    UEFA saving Lahoz for a semi... It's Danny Desmond Makkelie (NED) as ref on Saturday. Only had him vs Gladbach (h) Dec 2015 in a 4-2 win.

    Douglas Luiz

    Imagine the matchday thread if Gundo is lined up as 8 again... :-O I see him as DM and I find he has lost some energy playing further up the pitch. He can still control and conduct matches from 6 very well though.

    It's Quiet thread 14 - 'do one' edition

    Yeah I agree. Ota has accepted his fate anyway I guess and would fight to win the CL. Going back to Valencia would suit him well too. Garcia yes is in a mess but that's not our fault. And Stones honestly won't be on the pitch anyway in the big mentality matches coming up, defo not ahead of any...

    Douglas Luiz

    Maybe, but we need a non-HG spot for Luiz. Bravo -> Steffen (1more spot if some HG keeper...) Ota -> Koulibaly David -> Aouar would be my preferred guesses in this window. That's 17. I see Aouar as AM and Luiz as DM. Agreed? On DM we have Rodri and Gundo (Fern not really anymore). As AM we have...

    Lyon CL QF Pre-Match Thread (15/08/20)

    Refs for the QFs are: Atalanta - PSG.......Taylor Leipzig - Atletico....Marciniak Barca - Bayern.......Skomina Smells very much like our friend Lahoz for us if you ask me... Will be announced about tomorrow lunch time. 2020 CL knockout refs up to now were: ENG: Taylor (2x), Oliver ESP...

    Douglas Luiz

    Don't agree. Rodri is fantastic pressing actively, but not better being pressed in possession compared to Gundogan.

    Douglas Luiz

    Now that sounds as if you are talking about OUR active pressing, where I would agree. I thought you said Gundo is weaker in possession 'when pressed', where I don't agree. Maybe I misunderstood your point.

    Douglas Luiz

    You may have a point but if there's one City player staying especially calm when pressed it's surely Gundo simply because he can rely on his excellent ball control and awareness -not Rodri (although he has improved on that since being here). Pep would find a workaround in the squad. Or Aouar...

    Kalidou Koulibaly

    Wrong thread, I'll keep it short: Sandler's case is a bit unsure, out with knee injury since October... https://www.transfermarkt.co.uk/philippe-sandler/verletzungen/spieler/340460 I guess he is no alternative for the time being. Hope he recovers well.

    Lyon CL QF Pre-Match Thread (15/08/20)

    Yeah, but a CL-QF isn't a typical City matchday as well ;) Preparing for this match I can only recommend anybody to have a closer look at the 3-5-2 system. You'll find a lot about strengths/weaknesses within a short research. Our typical 4-3-3 leaves them a lot of space to counter - which...

    Lyon CL QF Pre-Match Thread (15/08/20)

    Spot on. This one has written 'red alert' all over it. I've seen it too often over the years. Nobody expects them to go through and that's their big bonus. We mustn't concede first, no way. That's their match plan, like in both group matches back then. If we score first we win. Wouldn't be...

    John Stones

    I also think it was just a diplomatic statement in an interview. "In the future" would also be correct speaking about the upcoming CL match(es) in Lisbon... John wouldn't disturb our preparations now, he's such a good lad and part of the team. But he will be aware of his situation, his agent...

    Ah ok, thanks, didn't know that system before. Anyway, Lyon beat Juve over 2 legs although being far lower on clubelo. Not sure Southampton would have.

    We'll have to agree to disagree then. You just refuse to comment on my arguments and post common places. That you don't even consider it's a tricky situation says it all.

    Champions League Games 7/8 August

    Well, that's exactly what Messi did. What if Koulibaly took a groin injury by Messi blocking the shot from behind? Also, why did get Lyon the penalty when Juve's player cleared the ball but caught Aouar afterwards?? After your interpretation the Juve player was in possession. Should we now try...

    Lyon CL QF Pre-Match Thread (15/08/20)

    LOL. For that arrogant comparison Pep would kick you all about the room. Lyon play a very tight 3-5-2. You know quite well it wasn't about Soton's level but about our level having 26 useless shots. I guarantee we won't have that in a CL QF on Saturday. I agree to the rest though.
