Que? You answered the ‘brain fart’ excellently
Stones and Dias being pulled out of position was because he set up with no shield, he takes accountability for that, especially as he’s not done it in the previous 10 CL games - he experimented at the wrong time as that shield was there for all to see today
He’s an incredible manager, one of the greatest of all time but he was culpable for that result, which he clearly will learn from!
You just feel comfortable when he puts a lineup out like today, no suprises. Just makes it fustrating when he plays out of form players or some other system.
Again, don’t be so matter of fact the way you respond ffs, told you countless times about this…Its not an experiment to play Gubdogan at 6, hes done it dozens of times. Weve won a title thanks to that lineup.
Peps reasoning for that match and lineup was solid, and he explained it in full before the match. It didn't work out, shit happens, you lose to a good side, just like we did with Fernandinho and Rodri playing 6.
Its beyond boring that a world class manager is still castigated for picking anything other than the exact lineup the fans have decided was acceptable despite going on 6 seasons of fans seeing him succeed most of the time when he makes a change.
