Jesus fucking christ, I still see some fans wanting to give Lampard time, showing City and Pep as an example of working together for years and working on the system and their play...

We go a goal down and fall apart. No urgency to get back into it. They scored within 2 minutes..so bad

Well tbf...despite how horrible his team is now and everything gone to shit, he still deserves credit for securing CL for another year in a season when lot of people wrote us off, after Hazard's depar

Am probably gonna end up jinxing it this fucking time but christ, do people not get tired about saying that about Azpi all the time? Every time, there's 'Azpi will struggle against X, Y, Z' bla bla bla but every time, he dealt with whatever threat well enough that there's no problem from his side. :doh: 

teams are targeting it with some success though. FA Cup final for instance

Good chance this might be called off as this seems similar to the situation of Fulham and Burnley where Fulham were still giving positive cases after the Spurs postponement.

Who exactly?

What does that have to do with Azpi specifically? We were just dumb to play a stupid high line with little pressing upfront against that Arsenal frontline to begin with.

Arsenal repeatedly played balls over the top on Azpilicueta's side in that game. One of them resulted in a pen.

That's gotta do more with our defensive line on that day. We tried to play a high one and didn't press well, always bound to fail. If we had played a deeper line, we wouldn't have any problem no?

And that has nothing to do with the fact that Azpi struggled with the pace, big time. He did struggle, full stop. You asked for an instance, you got it.

Yes but that's down to the system on that day. Imagine knowing your team have slow defenders and yet you ask them to play a high line. 

If Lampard suddenly ask the team to play a high line today against City with Silva in the back 4 and he struggles with balls over the top, who are you gonna blame? Silva for having no pace or Lampard for setting us up to fail knowing there are slow defenders in the backline?

Is Silva even slow? Seems fast to me. Obviously not as fast as Zouma, but Silva still looks fast.

I don't honestly care :lol: But you have a go at a user for having the nerve to actually say something about Azpi, you get an answer and you still jump around :lol:

How is someone slow getting outpaced by someone quicker from balls over the top even a good example? I mean that situation is obvious, simple logic, no? Give me an example of where Azpi has truly struggled 1 v 1 against someone else.

I think we win this one. The situation is aligning for us.

Pretty sure the situation also aligned for us against Arsenal last weekend...

The thought of Sterling sprinting at Azpi and De Bruyne playing easy diagonals between Zouma and Azpi is comforting before bed tonight. 😬😬😬

The original thought was Azpi is slow.

Thank you.

Yeah, the same thought that gets mentioned every single time before this kind of game but nothing disastrous really happened (of course now that I say this, something disastrous will happen today)...
