  1. The problem is Kepa isn´t dependable over the course of a whole month. He might string 2-3 clean sheets together, but there´s always a great possibility of a disasterclass, especially when you consider our opponents next January.

    Remember when Cech was out in 2010? This happened. I honestly thought we lost the league back then and I can easily see such scenario if we are in a title race next season.

    Erling Haaland must press if he wants to leave this summer.

    The Norwegian could cost €115 million in payments to Dortmund and another €30 million to Mino Raiola and Haaland's father. In total, about €145m million

    Considering Coutinho went for 140m that is not that much for Haaland to be honest.

    While first team level is ofcourse a totally different ball game he elevated himself to star prospect in the first place playing RCB (to accommodate Lamptey and Sterling at wing back). As Azpi has shown down the years in that position you can still get forward and get crosses in playing there and the combination with Hakimi down that side would cause all ends of problems.

    To add to that I think these height arguments are way overblown these days. First, Azpi is the same height as James and played this role on a high level for years now. James has a really good leap and won´t get bullied in physical duels also and imo he just lacks the energy and stamina for a wingback.

    We aren´t exactly a tall side now, but I don´t remember us having any trouble because of that all season. There are not many top-teams with many tall players in their sides at the moment. This height-talk only came up when Mourinho completely lost the plot in that autumn.

    Any idea on how good this guy is?

    51 league goals in Austrian Bundesliga across the last two seasons in 59 games (42 starts) seems pretty similar to what Haaland got for Salzburg, although Daka is a couple years older.

    Could be worth a shot if no proven top class strikers are available this year?

    He might be a good player, but I have to say that our league is really bad. Salzburg is by far the best team and the difference in terms of quality compared to the other teams is much greater than say Bayern compared to the rest of their league.  There might be some exceptions (Mane, Haaland) who are good enough for top teams, but usually young Salzburg players find their level at teams like Leipzig or Leverkusen at best. Other strikers who scored many goals in our league were quickly found out when they made the next step to Italy or Germany.

    They might be the better, more experienced team on paper and are favourites for the final, but I still fancy our chances. They are a good side, granted, but so are we and if anything I believe their style of play fits our strengths so its no coincidence we beat them two times the last couple of months. IF our defence plays like against Real Madrid we have a good chance of winning the game tomorrow. Sadly Christensen got this injury some weeks ago, I think we would have been much more solid at the back with him. Maybe he plays tomorrow, but I doubt it. 

    If we survive their early pressure and hit them on the counter we have chances.

    Kovacic made less mistakes that led to goals than Jorginho in the last couple of games. When Kova is next to Kante he plays much better and atleast he had an excuse of being rusty. What excuse does Jorginho have?

    Fair enough, but to be fair to Jorginho he was in general pretty good in the last few months and this includes many big games.

    What do you guys think about Jorginho starting? I think with Guardiola finally playing a 4-3-3 with Silva, Gundogan and KDB as the creators then Jorginho will have massive problems. He won't be able to deal with the pressure in my opinion.

    The problem is we don´t have alternatives.  Kovacic is quite good under pressure, but still looks very rusty after his injury so I doubt Tuchel would risk to play him. If Kante is out its game over in my opinion.

    I'd be surprised if any of the other teams around us have a similar record where they've picked up more points against top half sides than bottom half sides, like Tuchel has done.

    Personally I'd rather be in our position of having to fix a record against the teams lower down the table, than a record against the bigger teams. In theory it should be a problem easier to address.

    Reminds me a little bit of our 13/14 season. We threw the title away against teams like Villa, Norwich or Newcastle while winning pretty much every big game. 

    With a wise transfer window we can play for the title next season.

    Can the real Christian Pulisic please stand up?

    Surprised no one has really talked about him. Apart from the recent Real Madrid games, he hasn't scored or assisted since the Crystal Palace game, which was more than a month ago, and he has been very, very quiet in recent games. 

    Atleast he is the kind of player who is able to suddenly explode (like last summer) and doesn´t need a run of games in order to get going like Hazard used to back in the day. That might be some hope for the CL final that the real Pulisic turns up.
