Wdym. Doesn't Walker overlap and/or invert? How is it any different to the days of our back four with Lauren staying back and Cole pushing ahead?

I really don’t get what you’re trying to say? Our system works, that’s all that needs to be said? There’s no argument here.

I know I exaggerated, but Emery could have won something with this City team.

In the end, it is about what kind of players you have in hand.

Pep had huge success in PL with his tweaked formation, he had success with Bayern and he was a legend at Barca. A lot of his success was built on his revolutionary ideas and tactics; and I do not think winning one CL (with a more traditional formation) means what he did was wrong or inappropriate.

Anyway, they just got booted in the CL by Real, does that mean anything regarding his traditional formation?
Pep's success is driven by acquiring the best players in the world and getting the best out of them. The galaxy-brain tweaks have given him more problems, especially for City and Bayern in the Champions League.

I have no qualms with any coach trying to be innovative but it can't come at the expense of squad building.

Does it? Our xA is 6th at best, we are heavily dependent on set pieces to score and we don't have players on the bench who the coach trusts. Also, if your statement were true, why are searching for a midfielder, a CF and a left-back, according to reports? Our system could leave us with fewer points than last season and another season with no trophies.

The system has got us challenging for the title. We have scored the most goals we have conceded the least. Like City you need to continually upgrade your squad, that’s normal, it’s not related to the system itself.

Was garbage in the first half in terms of linkup/combination play and squandered many good chances but rectified it in the 2nd half with his goals.

Jekyll and Hyde performance

Yeah.....I thought his general play, especially in the 1st was a lil sus.

Great goals though.

Crazy how he messes up so many easier opportunities then turns into prime Torres for his two goals with his control, touches, composure and finishing.
That is precisely why I feel his finishing issues are in his head. He overthinks as against Trossard who has a shoot at sight policy. There is hope he can become a good finisher one day. He was supposedly a very good finisher in his Bundesliga days.

Really strange player finished tow difficult chances but the first tow he just seem wasn't bothered at all

11 league goals likely gonna finish with 15 and that for someone who looked flop first half of season that great return wished Mikel didn't waste that time and played him as CF earlier

I would give him the MOTM award if he wasn't so ***** in the first half. Good performance and some A-class ****housery.

10 nPG + 5 assist in PL majorly playing MF and only 10/15 starts at CF. Interesting.

Except for Isak I currently don't see an decent upgrade in the market for him atleast for next year at CF.
