I think you guys need Gundogan to complete the team. At the moment you're lacking the deep lying CM who will distribute the ball creatively the way Xavi did for Pep at barca. Fernandinho isn't creative with his passing. Once Gundogan starts playing your team will become a lot more fluent.

Any news on his return?
+2
Fernandinho is playing the Busquets role though. Silva is playing the Xavi role. I have been hearing that Gundogan can slot into both roles - cannot wait to see.

Btw - Ilkay is back in training. He might have a small part to play in the Manchester Derby.
Good win guys. We are terrific in the first 30 mins but lost the intensity a little bit later.

Aguero might receive a ban. Stupidity with the elbow he really did not need to do that. Nasri looked good :D I was screaming when he almost got the goal!

Silva MOTM for me today. Getting to his sublime best.
He should be banned and fined over his conduct.
We can't deal with high pressing and long ball play, that's what West Ham did in 2nd half.
First 20 min you were unplayable. Obviously it's impossible to play with the same intensity for the whole game. So far you and Chelsea look the most serious contenders this year.
Silva back doing silva things
I've seen the replay, his elbow doesn't connect with Reid
Looking good guys 👍👍👍
How bad is stone's injury?
Commentator said they understood he was withdrawn just for a poke in his eye. So it's probably nothing.
Sterling! 3-1 Pep has done wonders with that lad!
2-0 let's keep it up lads!
Our u18s thrashed Liverpool 7-0 and our u16s thrashed Burnley 6-0 - future looks bright & blue!!:)

Welcome Bravo! It's going to be an exciting year! I can't wait to see how Pep turns this team into a well oiled machine. Who else is exited?

Hart we appreciate all you have done and wish you luck in your future endeavors! I don't see him sticking along much longer he's not going to want to sit around being 2nd or 3rd fiddle.

I hope to see a more consistent City than we've seen in a while. More rotation and introduction of youngsters from our youth system. Let's get ride of any negative vibes of this page as well as negative players that'll affect the squad. Tomorrow is going to be a big test to see how much we've improved since last year (I don't believe we beat any of the top clubs last year in the PL). Thoughts opinions?

I love beer! What's your favorite style of beer? Mine's IPA's.
I don't see too much rotation coming about. Pep likes to work with a smaller squad just like Mou. But I do think that will help the youngsters since it looks like Pep prefers using youngsters rather than fringe-seniors (think Nasri Yaya etc.)

Tomorrow will be big. Manchester derby will be bigger :D

I love beer and whiskey. Wheated ones are my favorite for both. Hefeweizens and Old Wellers!
+1
Yup, welcome to City Bravo! His a quality keeper and amid the situation with Harty, no many are to pleasant in seeing him join us but his a beast in his own right.

I would recommended people to watch the Inside City or training vids on the teams youtube channel. They constantly update new materiel and its interesting to watch Pep's training exercises compared to MP. The squad looks really happy and determined to prove themselves. Also looks like Gundogan, Kompany and Sane are back in training.

With rotation and youth players. Pep gave the fringe/bench players a chance against Steau and well it was pretty bad. Simply not a good enough performance from them. I'm not surprised Pep will stick with a small squad of players he trusts to deliver. Also, I think Pep really likes players like Angelino, Maffeo and Tosin but these guys are still quite young and have a long way to go before playing more games. The only youth player his taken on is Iheanacho.
+1
Tomi, our club CEO Soriano said these things in his book, which contrasts your sentence 'Pep likes to work with a smaller squad just like Mou'
--------------------------------------------------------------

“Guardiola always prefers working with smaller groups with stable hierarchies and not a lot of internal competition.

“Guardiola chooses to work with 14 or 15 players that have his total confidence. The end result is a very stable playing style and a changing room that doesn’t harbour much conflict.

“Mourinho’s strategy is different. Whether in Chelsea, Inter Milan or Real Madrid, Mourinho works with bigger groups, with many well known and talented players competing for the line-up.

“Mourinho assumes the complex task of managing his players’ egos in exchange for having that much talent at his disposal."

I am hoping he uses the second even third string on games that do not matter to give the main squad some rest and the youngsters some game time to prove themselves.
^ Hopefully, I really want to see more of Tosin, Maffeo, A. Garcia, Manu Garica, Angelino and possibly Denayer.
+1
define small? 23 man squad seems the norm, thats what mou works with.

"Guardiola always prefers working with smaller groups with stable hierarchies and not a lot of internal competition"

what does that mean? he has had some of the best players ever at his disposal, and at bayern and barca squads dont get stronger or more competitive. those are his only two managerial jobs so i wonder what soriano is referring to.
@ManCityBlue - we all saw that Mourinho worked with the same 11 at Chelsea. He hardly rotated. Mourinho likes the same folks fitting into his way of playing. Only injures or serious lack of form changed the 11

Soriano is talking nonsense in general IMO. He is trying to talk about the contrast in man management but I think he is off on the squad sizes.

Aah man we miss Mancini. The one who started the revolution. This was when Aguero sunk the yellow submarine wasn't it!
+1
Oh man, I remember that game. Sucks that after City, he still hasn't settle at a club. He went to Galatasary left them and then signed for Inter and left them after a season and a half.
+1
Yup and his famous phrase "this is football è" will never be forgotten lol...oh and apparently Pellegrini is off to China, wish him a good luck.
The way we were lifted after our slump and Mancini had all the passion of city fans and reacted exactly how we would react.. I don't think there ever will be anyone like that.. I remember the touch line confrontations with Fergie. haaaa!
man..even if city won everything this season..it just feel wrong without hart in the team..why?why?why?
i hope by some magic he can join juve to learn from buffon...i hate to see him with the likes of liverpool and strengthen them
He will play with city, lets wait and watch.! i think it will be a mistake, after all the glory he brought, its a shame. I am upset seeing him on that pitch in the last match.

i know he was not consistent lately, but his clean sheet is more on that note.
Because even if Pep's squad is without Hart, you fans aren't heartless. Excuse the City pun.
Do you guys really think we have the group of death? I don't I mean Juve, Sevilla, Gladbach I think was a tougher group. I know Barca is in it but I do think we can beat Gladbach and Celtic.
You are right, but I'd say this current group is tougher only because we had a better chance of defeating Juve than we have with Barcelona. Not to mention that Juve screwed up in their other games which allowed us to top the group. We have to strive to get some points against Barca, but the focus should be to demolish the other two to be sure of qualifying.

One good thing is - we are not meeting Barca in the 16 stage lol.
+1
How is Juve, Sevilla and Gladbach a tougher group...Sevilla don't do jack s**t in CL and always go down to Europa. While in our group it's Barca and City.
+1
Is Patrick Roberts allowed to play against us? I know we have worked these types of bans into our loan deals in the past
He is going to play against us. We just allowed him to do so once the draw was finalized
@SA, We lost to Juve twice, Gladbach gave us a run for our money and Sevilla forced us to play a defensive game, which is something we hardly did with Pellegrini. It was a tough group.
of coz this time is tougher city got to face messi and other monsters with barca and english messi (patrick robert) and scott sinclair and kolo toure and legendary coach brendan with celtic
You started well but downhill from there.

We shouldn't be afraid of Roberts, Sinclair and Toure.

Brendan, yes, I'd be quaking in my shoes about. Let's not be deluded here.
