That's quite a lot of shit you've wrote there.
Indeed, I meant to write like 2 things then kept coming up with more lol. I think alot of these had been in my head for a while because Pep confounds me sometimes.
I don't want to be negative but there are a number of concerns to be addressed and just wishing them away won't get us anywhere. Yes the legend that is Kun will break the record this season but will he score enough crucial big goals? He is sat on the bench for Argentina for a reason you know. Jesus is still too young to spearhead a challenge on his own for the title and a lot of our midfielders do appear somewhat goal shy. Who will stand up to be the 20 goal plus Yaya of yesteryear? Look I hope we go on to have a great season like we all do but to pretend that a number of structural weaknesses are not present is somewhat delusional
You make some good points but not sure about Delph though will he stay fit for a start? We really do need to be trying Sane and Sterling out more in a central role and your suggestion of playing them in a two with Jesus or Kun might work. Dinho really concerns me. If you play him you are lacking vision and creativity/game building but if you leave him out you lose his energy and drive. How we use Bernardo and Gundogen if he gets back fit will be crucial to our chances this season.
@Andrew_K RE "
- DM/pivot, Dinho is horrible in this role, and it's not his fault. A move for Weigl should be made next summer.
- 1-2 CBs with playmaking abilities. A defender like Bonucci would drastically improve us just because he's a fantastic passer with a good vision. He doesn't even need to be better defensively than our current lot."
Fernandinho is great at defense in midfield - but as I've watched him lately, he just doesn't have good passing ability in attack. At fullback, he's hopeless - he doesn't even anticipate opponent's threats as fullback - simply not moving to cut off passes or to follow runners.
What role do you think Fernandinho fills? I thought he'd make a great pivot - he certainly has the defensive nous for this - but his long pass/linking ability seems really lacking to me for this role.
We now know that we don't have enough as our first big game Kompany is injured so we have a choice of a back 4 with Stones and Otamendi or a back 3 with Stones, Otamendi and one of Mangala or Tosin.
Can see this thread rearing its head throughout the season. Last year it was obvious we needed new fullbacks and didn't get them till this. This year we needed centre half cover for Kompany Pep even on record saying this and we haven't got it!! We are doomed I say doomed!
do u remember my comments on the 1st of September??
so negative!!!! do u remember my reply to your absolute nonsense comment back on the 1st of sept 2017?? Go back and look!!! to many negative fans like yourself need to get a grip when things are not going great. I'm sure we will lose soon enough and will go through a bad patch but u know what I'm back my team and players to the fullest that's what true city's fans do. Especially players like Sergio!!!!
It's early doors stop being so negative!. Aguero will start scoring again and will become our all time top scorer this season! Get of his back He's just as clinical. He Just isn't fit and looks abit rusty! I'm sick of fickle fans like yourself being so negative towards everything. We are 3 games into the season! none of the players are even 100% fit yet! just because we're not smashing teams like the start of last season doesn't mean anything! We won our 1st 10 games at the start of last season and where did that get us.??? We won nothing! Be patient and positive instead of looking at all the negatives. Theres better things ahead my friend. I'll always keep the faith and back my team and manager all the way. We will fight till the end once again I'm sure this year and will win the league!! it definitly won't be easy. we always do things the hard way. nothing is ever easy with us. just stop being so negative and come back Christmas time and talk to me about AguerO not being as clinical. How anybody can criticise that lad as a fan is beyond me. He's in his prime and will show all the fake fans what he's all about this year
