For Christ's sake, how many times will we have to go through this...?! Hazard earns 540 000 fucking EUROS per month, which does 135k euros per week = £116k at the current exchange rate. All French-spe

The only way KDB is gonna get back in the Chelsea lineup is by actually playing well, something he hasn't done since this summer.

I stayed away from this topic as long as I could — and hopped to do so for the upcoming months — but I am too bothered by what's going on in this topic. And, Choulo, if I'm quoting you on this, it's n

Oscar will have a better season.

Doubt it. Kevin will be playing in a fluid, attack minded side that dominate the ball and relentlessly hammer opponents. If he plays in similar form as he has this past year he should put up huge stats.

Oscar won't even start the majority of our matches.

Silva, Yaya, Aguero and De Bruyne. Four highly technical players capable of combination play, creating chances and goals.

They will murder teams who sit back and those who open up.

We have hazard, Pedro and fabregas but we don't have wingbacks who can stretch play and cross like kolarov and Zabaleta.

Instead we stay cramped in the middle and choke ourselves in tight spaces with slow passing. The way we overcomplicate football annoys me at times.

Their FB are fine. Zabaleta and Sagna are two of the best RB in the league. People use to say Sagna was the best RB in the league when he was at Arsenal. So they are fine in that department. Sagna has been excellent this season. Kolarov for me too, is extremely underrated and one of the best LB around imo. He has worked on his defensive game and is unstoppable going forward. Clichy is a decent back up too. They are scoring goals and not conceding.

Agreed on Zabaleta (for me the best RB in the last 3 seasons) & Kolarov (very under-rated) ... But age is catching up with everyone and Sagna at times isnt convincing (a lot of time) ... i believe all of these are in their 30s (if i m not wrong), it's a risk for them at this stage to not invest in those positions ... The fire power they have they will always score and keep the not so strong opposition on the back foot.

Let see as the season goes ahead ...

so City are now going to destroy the good balance they had in their attack, they lose width and pace now also, and will become more narrow, Silva will get less space as a result and City will now become easier to park the bus against for many teams.

Pedro would have been the perfect signing for City, I would have given them a chance in the CL also if they signed Pedro, I can't see De Bruyne getting to double figures in goals or assists this season, such a bad fit for him.

You guys realize that KDB and Wolfsburg plays purely counter attacking football last season. Man City doesn't have that luxury since most teams will sit back and park the bus on them...

it's no wonder that wolfsburg were able to beat schalke (KDB was unable to beat them in 3 tries) with ease yesterday since the tactics stay the same, but played guys who can press higher and better than kdb...Wolfsburg may not be second this season, but they will surely still make top 4.

Yeah you're right: Silva, Yaya and Aguero never really turn up for Belgium.

Belgium has hazard, witsel, kdb who are all very techincal players...Yet, every team they faced in the group stage literally played conservatively/park the bus and were unable to break it until they played counter football at the end of the game or Fellaini ball.

Man City last season had NASRI, who is a technically better player than both sterling and KDB..... and was unable to break it multiple games with aguero, nasri, silva/

No, because Belgium play bad as a team, didnt really have good organised attack

Meanwhile in city, kdb will have team with fluid movement,excellent passing, attacking minded, excellent & technical teammate which blend very well as a team
