You wouldn’t have signed Rodri? Enough of your bullshit, please.
Good game last night. That sort of game seems to suit him, where he can express his silky skills without being put under too much pressure.
Rodri is class but he's got a point. If we only had X amount to spend in the summer a centre back or centre mid what position was most in need of a upgrade?
Appears to be back to the form he showed during the run-in last season.
We needed and have been looking for a Fernandinho successor for a couple of years now and Gundogan is not that player. You could argue we don't need a Fernandinho replacement right now but that's only because he's a freak of nature who has shown no signs of aging. It would have been poor planning to put all our eggs in one basket with him this season.
Anyway, Gundogan was great last night. I hope he's kept exclusively to either that role against certain teams or maybe used as an 8 alongside a more direct midfielder instead of crowbarring both him and David into the same lineup.
Was brilliant and his pass for Sterlings goal would be on a loop on TV had it been made by some other players we can name.
He has played an invaluable role for Pep and is very, very versatile. Underrated by far too many people.
He reminds me of Pirlo when he plays as #6.
He didn't control the game imo. We had to build up our play from Mendy/Walker making it easier for them to press us
It's stange because he was our only unmarked player so he should have been available.
He's more a Xavi/Busquets style of player. Really, Pirlo did nothin more than long distance bombs across the field the last 10 years of his career. And free kicks. He spent most of the games as far back as the last line, often iddling between the centre backs. Nono, Gundogan is another kind of player.
