The passing part I agree, but for Allan the attacking side of the game is natural while it isnt for Kante.

allan only had 4 goals 5 assists in an attacking formation Kante will be more than fine

Kante has gome from.strength to strength in his development here he will embrace the challenge to further expand his attacking game. When he came fromeicester he could not string passes over more than 20 yards together nownhr is clippong those diagonals with ease. Natural or not... no one is born with the kind of tackling skills of Kante he learned it with his relentless work ethic and he will learn the offensive duties Sarri imposes on him all.the same

I don't think hardly anybody is going to question Sarri's tactics (unless it's really bad), but let's see how he does under pressure. Does he switch it up? Does he put on the right subs? These are the things we need to examine more, but we wouldn't know until the PL season has begun.

Also you said Bravo and the fullbacks stopped them from challenging, for us it'll be Morata and the wingbacks.

City will be tough to catch this season regardless of if we fix those issue's, without meaning to sound like a Liverpool fan this year is about building and the next one challenging.

Perhaps so but Guardiola failed to adapt to what he had at that point and kept playing the same way and got exposed almost every week. You would hope Sarri doesn't turn out to be that way.

You could also argue it worked in the long run, got a couple of stuffing's but it was clear City were heading in a positive direction and the rest of us were always in trouble once he got the athletic fullbacks and decent keeper.

I would trade a couple of ego dent's for similar progress if im honest.

I mean Alonso and Moses. Wingbacks, not fullbacks.

We are not gonna  play with wingbacks. Alonso can play reserve full back as can Zappacosta

True, but let's do the fixes now and not delay. Because if we delay we may not challenge again the following season.

Doesn't matter if it's wingback, fullback, hardback, sitback...as long Moses and Alonso are in the starting XI we won't go far.

how did bakayokos hair grew so much in two months

That is the most shocking thing about this match to me.

 

He had to have been growing it out for a year at least.

Barkley has been class today. Hats of to him.

He gets a 10/10 for effort.  And he's had the right mentality.  We'll see how quickly he picks up the team play.  You can see him looking around trying to figure out where to be on offence and when to press on defence.

Yes, we all knew City were going in a positive direction - they were always gonna be under Guardiola - but that's not the point, Tomo. The point is Guardiola failed to adapt to what he had. It's all good and easier when you have the players that you want, but when you don't have them, you gotta show a different side by adapting and becoming flexible. Not saying Guardiola should have started playing pragmatic football like Mourinho and gone against his football philosophy but he could and should have tweaked his approach to ensure his team were less exposed on the defensive side of things but he didn't.
