To be fair he also said Kolarov was one of the best centre-halves he had seen...
To be fair Kolarov would walk back into this team as a CB ;)
Walking back is a fairly apt choice of words as he could barely run when he left 3 years ago.
That's why he would work well with this team, maybe push into midfield, look right at home
I sound like a right patronising bellend here but don't you think other coaches might have spotted that and setup to prevent it over the course of the previous two seasons, when nearly half our goals came from very similar patterns of play, it wasn't exactly a fucking surprise tactic was it.
Since when? If he actually said that it must've been a very recent revelation.
Spot-on. We have been slow and predictable all season. The high cross tactic is bizarre for us. Even David Silva did a couple of mindless high crosses at the weekend. Last season Bernardo played mostly at number 8 and Sterling played on the right or left. Sane tended to come off the bench when teams were shattered and late in matches we destroyed teams with two orthodox wingers. This season our lack of pace, especially on the left with a crocked Mendy or slow Angelino has stopped us getting to the byeline to play hard and low crosses so we have resorted to punting the ball in the air. What I can't understand is why Pep has not varied things? KDB can play number 10 brilliantly and Bernardo is great at 8 with Sterling and Mahrez on either sides.
I'm probably alone in this, but I really think it's time for Pep to evolve the team again and change the shape and system. The principles of pressing can remain but maybe it's time to use a two striker system, or even three at the back with Walker as a CB to defend the counter.
Walker Fernandinho Otamendi
Cancelo Rodri Foden Mendy
The board just need to decide whether they want more seasons like the previous two, or are happy with growing CFG and winning the odd cup or title every few seasons.
If it's the former, and I sincerely hope it is, then we need to splash some serious funds on the very best players available during the summer.
If they're already satisfied and just looking at the commercials/CFG/womens team/EDS as a profit-making tool, etc then it'll be more cheap shit signings like Angelino and goodbye Centurion seasons. I really, really hope that's not the case. We should be aiming to dominate, not letting the scouse cheats have an easy ride or letting var and ffp beat us.
