  1. The Conte Thread

    One thing we've become under Conte? Disgustingly clinical. We don't waste chances anywhere near as much as we used to.
  2. 15. Victor Moses

    I was surprised (well not really) he coped much better than Alonso with City's overloads. Defended really well.
  3. 22. Willian

    Great finish, very good goal. He's a good player. I wish we could fuse Pedro and Willian, would be the perfect RF player.
  4. 13. Thibaut Courtois

    Top notch performance, as you'd expect from a gk of Thibaut's quality.
  5. The Conte Thread

    It has everything to do with him. Matic's influence in midfield means Cahill and Alonso are a lot more protected. Today they had Cesc in front of them. Of course, City had to exploit the Alonso - Cesc - Cahill trinity, it'd be daft not to. Tottenham didn't exploit that as much as City did because Matic was there.
  6. Man City - Chelsea

    I see luck everywhere, but... How about City being lucky that Cahill scored one of the dumbest own goals ever? Man City created probably 4/5 good goal scoring chances whilst we created 3/4. We were clinical. They weren't. Nothing lucky about it imo.
  7. Ricardo Rodriguez

    Ricardo Rodriguez wouldn't be an improvement on Alonso imo. Maybe very very slightly but he's overrated.
  8. João Cancelo

    Barca bound.
  9. Riechedly Bazoer

    Needs to stay in NL or at least go to a club smaller than CFC first.
  10. Kasper Dolberg

    I just had a nightmare remembering this. Can't believe we had to endure Ramires at RW.
  11. Chelsea v Spurs

    You guys are getting me super hyped for the game, must be said. Hate the scum. Hope we destroy them. What I'm really hoping for is that Eden vs Spurs becomes the new Drogba vs Arsenal.
  12. Chelsea v Spurs

    In order to win the Premier League you need to be lethal in attack and strong at the back, 3-4-3 means you're playing with one less forward and over the course of the season it will be their undoing. LOL how stupid is this? Every time we go forward we actually have 5 attackers because of our wing backs. Does he have no football knowledge?
  13. 23. Michy Batshuayi

    Ever heard of Ronaldinho?
  14. The Conte Thread

    The biggest weakness I can see with this 3-4-3 is the space in behind the wing backs. Because both of our wingbacks aren't fantastic defenders, if you've got that space and you've isolated Moses or Alonso and are a decent dribbler, you should be able to exploit it, and then you can exploit further by either putting in a good cross if no support comes in, or having another player attack the channel that is left behind by the support player if support does arrive. It's something that could be a problem against City specifically since they like their players underlapping and moving in these channels and spaces. It'll be interesting to see how Conte deals with this if it gets properly exploited.
  15. 23. Michy Batshuayi

    Did anyone watch the u23 game? Michy scored two great goals but his overall performance was pretty bad. Really needs to work on his reaction time and anticipation. Also his off the ball movement is quite poor for a striker. He must improve on these things.
