    Go look ant any analysis of game last night.

    Look at what PSG fans are saying.

    That front three dont press as a unit no matter how hard you try to deny it and they dont track back consistently either.

    Believe what you want.

    If you think those stats back you up. Go for it. All been discussed before.

    not denying that. where did i wrote it?

    actually i'm pretty sure it is either a problem of having all three together on the field or the fact that pochettino doesn't know how to set them up tactically or teach them how to press collectively.

    tv/internet analysis and what fans say it's kind of bullshit when everyone is laughing at neymar for being a slouch. but in reality he runs and presses the most(by far) out of those three and is on par with other elite forwards.

    i'm not saying that they do smart pressing or that they are on par with pep's team, but clearly there are other issues that hamper them. like shite midfield or pochettino's tactics.

    i guess it's easier to write everything off and just laugh at them for being lazy.

    The three of them wont act as a unit and press or get back the way they should.

    Same as Tuchel before him the power lies with the players and little can do about it other than leave.

    Whole of Europe is pointing out how little that front three do off the ball and issues it caused last night. There were times City had ball in defence and three of them are almost all central.. a couple of them make a token effort to 'press' City get ball past them and they just stop. Happened constantly.

    There is not a coach out there that will get those three to press as a unit. As if just say it to Messi and he starts doing that. It is on the players that make it impossible not the coach.

    Tuchel had same issue last year. Adding Messi just makes it worse.

    There may be coaches who can come up with better idea of how to mask the fact they wont press or track back but the coach who just won last CL couldnt.

    Absolutely loving supporting City. Qualified for knockout stages nine current seasons in a row, better than any other English team . Finals of Europe for England is a huge improvement. Pep is a superb manager. I love watching City play. They played some dross for about 40 years but the last 15 years wonderful. Loving my football.

    Trust you feel better tomorrow and post more positively. Have a good day.

    Check 0:59.

    Opinions?

    Look at follow through of leg. Was putting quite some strength there behind ball prolly to push it forward.
    Ended up skimming ball and ball went around keeper.

    for me, chelsea and Bayern are the teams to beat this year. i dont think City have the killer instinct in them that is necessary to progress through the KOs
    xavi really needs to punch someone

    This feels like a computer putting random sentences from the MC forum together.
