    There's basically nothing they can say to convince Koeman. Shut the fuck up and sit on the bench or GTFO.
    😂 Spot on man! Well said.

    aww yeah dawg. We have arrived.
    Will be interesting to see what that position will be.

    Ironically, the best position for Greizmann is already occupied by Messi. That?s the most frustrating thing about him being in this team. Anyone who followed him for France and Athleti would know he always played in that 10 role just behind the main striker. He has rarely ever played as a 9 at all.

    Barcelona style play without 10 or one behind striker

The one next to Frenkie will be someone who can cover for Frenkie so he can run the game.

    With Ten Haag's assistent from Ajax this is the most likely scenario which is fine for me but the board should let them have full control over transfers.

    But looking bad for Puig.
    Weird number 10.

    Lucho?

    Anyway, Koemans case is different. He?s gonna be backed by a lot of people as the players have already been exposed as a spoiled bunch.

    Honestly, he can do no wrong and and players know it. If news comes out about Koeman getting tangled up with certain players, fans are going to ble the player. Players should know to respect his authority.

    We will see.
    Player power has only increased over the past decade or so, managers who are "the boss" are becoming a rarity, and usually ends with players winning that battle, its much cheaper to replace a coach than half the dressing room.

    No shit with the amount of money we invested into FDJ, we should be playing him in his best position.

    We spent the entire season trying to gamble with the idea that FDJ can evolve into some sort of Iniesta like CM, but what we got is playing a guy who often didn't get the ball enough and looked more like a water carrier than what the idea we were trying to use him. The day he signed that contract was the day we should have been building around him.

    exactly.
    This is now clear state of "super name coach" vs "super name bunch of wanna be wolrdstar players"... Koeman is an authority to dismiss this "amigos bunch" and show them the bench/door.
    it is only thing I rely on with Koeman. Or at least I put my faith in that.
    Andres DON Iniesta is the only player in football's history to be Man of the Match in a Champions League final, EURO final and World Cup final.

    Well in this case the players are all washed up geriatrics though. Everyone saw them get slaughtered by Bayern and Barto called them out publicly.

    Amigos don't have much going for them at the moment, won't be easy but if there ever was a time to clean house it's now.

    Under Koeman Benfica did reach the quarter-finals of the Champions League 2005/2006 eliminating Liverpool in the first knockout stage (1/8 finals ) with 2 wins 1-0 in Portugal and 2-0 at Anfield !

    Yeah my point exactly. Koeman?s situation doesn?t compare for example to lets say Benitez.
