    Besides the obvious teams that have played this style (better...??) before us and with Ederson's ability helping out the team; this is what "total football" truly looks like, in my opinion.

    They're doing it so that they can sell us their players for big money at some point. We're turning the English leagues into a City Academy :-)

    In defence of goalkeepers (I am one), many of us are not shit footballers who can't pass. You need a system that suits to make use of this though. Which is what Pep has done. His whole philosophy is about stretching the pitch. If you play saturday and sunday football though the centrebacks play about as far apart from each other as Jedward, so the threaded ball to the midfield isn't on.

    Fantastic, skilful player Eddy tho. All looks completely natural and not contrived like Neuer.

    Finding it very hard to imagine a penguin in goal...

    They’re great on the ground, but they struggle in the air.

    I'll stick with Billy the fish in that case.
