Glad we bounced back from that defeat! Was a wee bit worried since losing games can either break you or make you!
Danilo must be really far down the pecking order. I mean when Pep picks another MF to play LB instead of Danilo, it doesn't sound too good for him.

On the other hand, would love to see Zinchenko get more games in LB. Deserves it, if we don't get another LB, don't mind giving him a chance.
Pep lives using youth. Will be nice to see more youth playing games!
who needs money mongering Sanchez (who is about to be on a 500K salary at United, even more than what Ronaldo makes at Real Madrid) when you have Agueroooooooooo?
Ridiculous money, but makes sense for United at this time. They really need to get some world class players to catch up with City in our current state

Hopefully this will put to rest the conversations about 'spending too much money', or maybe I am just dreaming it will. The fact is that when a club really needs a player, then they have to pay a premium no matter who they are. United have been doing it for the last 2-3 seasons since they started struggling by their own standards. City has overpaid for the last 10 years but I see us now cutting better deals because we are done with a fair amount of building and in a position to negotiate
Crazy wages but Utd are so desperate for world class talent atm. So I can see why but the wages are insane, he better bag 25-30 goals with what his earning.

For us, its always going to be a challenge trying to spend and not over spend. At least now with Pep, we can be a bit wiser with our need vs want.

Sane is just soooooooooooo goooood!

Props to Zinchenko for doing so well on his debut, what a fantastic young player.
+1
Yeah for sure, he made some superb passes, and defended well, he looks up to the task.
Had the most horrific dream. I dreamt we signed Lukkaku from United as back up for G.Jesus...*shudders at the thought of that happening*. Tevez hell yeah, Lukkaku just no. Tevez was the only signing I really appreciated from United, and it's only because I loved Carlitos attitude towards the game.
Yeah yeah. The fact that you share your name with him does not count all all yeah :P

But yes, one of my favorite players. City legend for me. He started this new generation
+1
Haha so true, still get his 32 number printed with my name his name on some of my jerseys.
We'll always miss Carlito. I heard he is back at Boca for a 3rd time.
Just watched Jadon Sancho play for Dortmund against Hertha Berlin. The boy is quality at 17, lots of confidence. Lacks finishing but great on the ball and provided an assist. Wish he stayed at City as I think he would have developed well under Pep but he choose to leave. I'm happy for him but wish we still had him.
+1
Im so happy that weve turned a corner to a team who no longer throws huge sums of money for guys like sanchez anymore. its taken a while but since the takeover we finally have a competent wage structure.
+1
The team learned their lesson after ffp. The wages had to lowered
and the basic salaries for our guys need to be less than 180k a week. KDB earns a 160k a week but the top players get performance base bonuses which is a good alternative. Prior to being signed, I'm sure this boys are notified that no one walks away with 300k and Sanchez would have caused an uproar if he joined considering guys like Silva, KDB are killing it for us and are on 160k while grumpy a** Sanchez wants 300k or more. I thought he was after trophies but I guess not. Heck even Bayern offered to buy him and they back out due to his demands.
+2
Maybe Sanchez gave up on trophies and decided to replace it with money? He's not getting any younger I guess. I hope he'll be happy with his achievements when he retires and don't think back and say what if he joined this team or that team what he could have achieved.

Maybe I'm overthinking it, maybe all that matters is cash.
+1
There is a clear logic to the way were offering wages too. Our Long term guys who have ben major for the team like Yaya and aguero make the most over 200, KDB being imperious just now gets to that point, SIlva is in that upper eschelon too but not over 200k. the younger guys aside from sterling are all closer to 60k -100. a much better balance, a ceiling has been set and the inscreases are doable, havin a guy make over 300k when the players who got us here make 100-150k less wuld have caused numerous problems. SHows great intelligence by our management very happy.
+1
Now now fellas, you say it is about money over trophies but it isn't as if he is going to a billionaire mid table team with zero chance at success.

Look, United aren't in the position of dominance that we used to be but to say he wouldn't win anything here is pushing it.
+3
Dont be too full of yourself. I hate United but Sanchez will have a good chance of winning big trophies at United as much as at City. The only difference is if he joined City he would get a free PL trophy this season itslef but he wont be a major earner of that cup. United will probably buy one or two more star players next transfer to be as strong as City.
You guys are talking as if Sanchez has gone to China or lower league to earn more. At United he is earning more along with a chance to win major trophies. Its a win win situation for Sanchez.
Saying that I hope Sanchez and Jose fail miserably at United and win nothing. If not Chelsea I would like Liverpool or City to lift major trophies.
Never said he chose money over success...
I'm just happy we don't sign a player for that much doe $$
Inigo Martinez will most likely or should likely happen. His release clause is 28mil and his only 26 years old compared to a 30 year old Evans who's valued at 30mil. I don't care about his experience, I would not even pay more than 10mil for him.
+2
buying Evans to me is ridiculous, we need young good defenders for the future.
+1
Maybe we should swap Mangala for Inigo Martinez ... a win win situation for both clubs :D
I hope Pep and the boys took a long look at the Liverpool game. When Liverpool pressed they pressed with 3 or 4 players sometimes, closing down one player with the ball, blocking off passing lanes and giving the player no time to analyze his surroundings to pick the correct pass which resulted in errors. Also while defending our press their midfielders came back to defend and did the same thing pressing from the back which when any error occurred they counter attacked swiftly.

To stand a chance at beating Liverpool our midfielders needed to play the same game by getting back as quick as Liverpool mids and press with 2 or 3 players and counter from there, but I'm afraid Pep didn't change his tactic.

When we press we press 1 vs 1, while man marking players, which forces our opponents to go with long balls over the top, we did this against Pool, however the difference is and has been for most of the season, our midfielders never goes back as deep as Liverpool did because the opposition was always mostly in their half or they weren't pressing with 3 or 4 players like Liverpool did, they were pressing 1 vs 1 which we can handle by simply passing out the back and starting an attack.

We can learn a lot from Liverpool, and I hope the boys did after that game.

Yeah, Liverpool transition so well as a unit in multiple numbers and can go from a deep defensive set up to an attacking unit that is pressing us until we push the ball back to Ederson. Very tough to stop as our team is not as flexible as Liverpool, Klopp's is willing to defend and attack but with Pep we are constantly on the attack, playing a high-line. Tough to see Pep changing his way but its something to keep in mind.
+2
Looks like were out of the Sanchez race. Tbh, I'm kind of glad, his wage demands are crazy and we have other priorities to deal with such as a LB and CB. Not going to lie, he would have been a sick addition but for a guy after titles he sure is demanding a lot.
Lol, I like how the club go about business, people give us stick about spending but the club don't just throw around cash if they think it's not a good deal. Let him go where he wants to, I hope he get's the titles he's looking for.

Lb,Cb and maybe bring in Douglas Luiz for Fernandinho as he's not getting any younger either.
