the worse thing is that these people are so clueless.

it's actually so sad lol.

we played Arsenal in the league on June 17th, beat them 3-0

Then Arsenal play a Back-3 system in the FA Cup semifinal, and we go the whole he with like 2 shots on Target, and we got counter-attacked to hell.

Because we reverted to Pep's plan b of pumping cross after cross into the box to make David Luiz look in his pomp again.

I am as frustrated as anyone but I can see some logic in his selection.
The entire season we've played our usual game against this sort of opposition and lost. If we did that tonight we'd have called him clueless for not changing it. lose-lose this for him, the team simply isn't capable of playing against such teams (which is of course partly his fault).

Like Ezzy said, the Arsenal semi-final is exactly what we would have seen if we played Lyon in a 433.

Atalanta play 3 at the back and we beat them 5-1

Atalanta are an old side who try to pass through people. tiki-taka style. Beating them is just a case of not letting passes through midfield.

They are nothing like Lyon or Arsenal who hit long balls over midfield into the channel for pace merchants.

If you think that was the right way to set up against Lyon then your clueless pal.

Now off you go to the transfer forum where you can play your fantasy itk out.

He will argue that is Sterling and to a lesser extent Jesus bury their chances, our goalie doesn’t drop one and our defender doesn’t get tripped up in the build up to Lyon’s second then he’s done everything right

I don’t think I want to die on that hill, but it’s a reasonable argument

Can see the logic in his selection but would have put Kyle in the back three with the two Eric's, Cancelo on the right, Mendy on the left and a middle three of Kev, Rodri and Phil. Play as we should do fast and on the front foot.

Pep of all people? Perhaps we should know better?

How do you justify that starting line up in a Champions League Quarter-Final? And then you leave it for an hour to change it?!

This was not just a marginal call, it was a simply inexplicable and totally destructive midfield selection.

How do you stand in front of the dressing room and demand more of your players when you make a team selection like that? In one evening he takes on a figure of ridicule.

It is impossible to defend Pep's team selection tonight and it's simply unforgivable for a coach to make such a mistake in a game of this proportion.

The players played poorly that day partly because we've hardly played that formation this season but we've won god knows how many trophies playing that system and got 100 points. It's the formation we should have played all season.

Do you know how many trophies we won playing that shite tonight? Fuck all. And we won't ever win trophies like that if we're getting turned over by Lyon.

It was a fucking shitshow that doesn't need clueless people defending it.
