True but at the same time, we don't pass the ball direct enough. We don't have anyone who is capable of playing those long balls over the top for example. We just keep on pass, pass, pass like 1000 times before the ball gets to the front players. I don't expect us to build the team fully around Werner like Leicester do with Vardy but there are elements of their game which we can replicate to get the best out of Werner and even Pulisic, CHO etc.

Yeah I miss the directness we once had, we even had it under FL in the beginning then it went backwards.

I mean, we do have one of the best in Europe at those balls. Sadly, he hasn't been fit yet. Ziyech will be a godsend to Timo. Havertz is excellent at those balls, too.

But wow, not often you see City get battered like this. Pep must be going nuclear.

Hubris will do you in

wayyyyyyy back, last summer, 2019

I posted his 'we do not need anyone at the back 4' quote and predicted doom

I even said, if Laporte goes down, they are well and truly fucked and he went down soon thereafter

But Ziyech is someone who plays further forward. We don't have a Fabregas-type midfielder in midfield or even someone with that ability in defence. Maybe Silva can fill that role, I don't know but overall, we have a bunch of useless passers in defence and midfield.

I think Brendan Rodgers is one of the best managers in the world.

Rodgers will do well when things are going well but when things are going downhill, he doesn't know how to stop it.
