    Name 3 teams we will face this season that will play with as high a defensive line as Yokohama did.

    For comparison, Sané has 52 goals in 190 games in his career.

    Oyarzabal is 1 year younger and has 41 goals in 164 games.

    So they are not too dissimilar in terms of goal threat. And when you factor in that Leroy has spent 3 years in this City team as part of those figures, Oyarzabal might even be more of a goal threat than Leroy if he were to play in this team?

    I get that we all wish he had more pace, but there has got to be a player in there.

    Not sure Tommy Hutch had pace, but he left plenty on their arse.

    Because of managers like Pep that pacy defenders not to tackle but to force players into non threatening positions, to play counter attacking that we do at every corner we concede

    The example was not about the high line but PACE, but liverpool will leave 3 pacy players up front so will Barca and maybe PSG, Real Dortmund

    How do you sprint past a defence parked 6 across on the 18 yard line?

    Real Dortmund are twice the team they used to be.

    Looks like a young Gerd Muller in the making. Not fast or technical but brilliant at dragging defenders around and finding space in dangerous areas. Good finish on him too. Would be great against the mass defences City face 95% of the time.

    The Kaiser has made a return to Deutschland and made Dortmund his club.

    Fuck it, if Sane wants to play for the German rags then I hope its sorted soon and we get this guy in no fuss asap.

    Still hope he stays but I'm sick of this saga. Next summer I say we all turn out and say Kimmich should join us, see how the pompous wankers like it then.
