-----------Hart--------------
Sagna--Kompany--Demichelis--Clichy
------Yaya---Fernandinho------
Navas------Silva----Nasri
--------Agüero--------------

Gotze---Lewa----Muller
Alaba---Alonso--Gaudino
Bernat--Dante--Boateng--Lahm
-------Neuer------------

This is the starting line up I'm expecting for both sides. Not Bayern's best starting XI but, still pretty strong. I think Yaya will be the key man. If he has a good game, City can really trouble Bayern.

My Prediction is 1-1
My prediction...no prediction, I just hope my team plays at their best, that's all I want win or lose or draw.
Milner and Dzeko should start in my opinion. We won the game last time because we have a target man and an extra man in the midfield. If City go out trying all out attack we might suffer a worse fate than what Arsenal did yesterday.
I agree tomi, we should play tight and smart. But you never know I think we have come a long way in terms of experience, maybe we can boss Bayern for once this time (; Or maybe I need to wake up.
Hmm. Has not sunk in that we are playing Bayern in Munich today. LOL

We'll have the likes of Lewandowski, Gotze, Muller, Lahm and others pitted against us. Looks like Ribery and Robben might miss out.

Bayern is a larger than life team but like Pellegrini said, we have the personality to go there with an intent to win, come what may.
Yaya needs to have a big game today.
I am anxious, they all need to have a big game, not just yaya.
Yaya has not impressed in a long long time. Every since his lazy effort/s in preseason I have lost some faith. He has not really stepped up at all. Also seems like he has put on some weight. Don't look like the murderous Yaya of last year.
I think he has gotten a bit too comfortable.

Too much Cake maybe.
Happy birthday to the classy manager we all know and love! haha. We thank you Pellegrini.
+1
We're still learning in Europe, but we're getting a lot better quickly. The games are played at a different tempo and are refereed completely differently to the Premier League - which we found out the hard way against Barcelona last season, falling over, feigning injury, surrounding the ref, wasting time, breaking up the game etc. Hopefully we're a bit wiser to the 'big teams' tactics this time around and don't let it frustrate us. We've got every chance of getting a results against Bayern tomorrow night, however it's not that important providing we don't lose to them at home. Beat CSKA home and away, beat Roma at home and don't lose away. This would give us a minimum of 11 points - assuming we lose tomorrow. We should be better than Roma and much better than CSKA, and really should get out of this group. Bayern are in the nice position of being able to prioritize the Champions League over there domestic competition because they've virtually already won that before it starts.
Well not only are we in a pretty tough group but finishing 2nd isn't going to be anymore fun, we could end up getting another tough opponent while whomever finishes first might get an easier opponent. Finishing 1st should be the goal and we can do that by wining tomorrow.
What's your thoughts on a starting XI against Bayern? They've started to play with a 3-4-2-1 lately but I'm guessing their going to go with 4-3-2-1 or something like that considering they beat us with 3 man MF and their not going to risk it. Although how is the attack going to look like?
-------------------Hart-----------------
Zabaleta---Kompany---Demichelis----Clichy

-------Fernandinho-----Yaya Toure--------

Navas------------Silva-------------Nasri

-----------------Aguero------------------




This line up I want to see for us, we could even put Toure beside Silva. Even though Aguero does not play lone striker that well, I think it is essential we keep a compact midfield, with Toure making some of his forward runs and Fernandinho covering and Silva working his magic I am sure we can get goals. and of course Navas making those wild sprints stretching Bayerns defense, should be an interesting match if we are at the top of our game.

I can't believe I actually put Demichelis in there lol.
Look at our front 4. No height. We need Dzeko in there guys. I just dont see Aguero being effective alone. Not against Dante and Boateng. This means we dont cross in the air at all. Very very predictable.

Btw - Zabaleta is suspended. Sagna will start. Agree with Demichelis being there.
Do you think Pelle will start demichelis with chelsea being on sunday though? He is a work horse, but the man still might need a break. What do you think about the possibility of Mangala getting his debut?
yeah tomi I was thinking of starting Dzeko and Milner instead, and maybe bring on Aguero and Navas, for tired legs.

I don't know if I would debut Mangala against a rampant Costa lol, But if he is ready I think it's possible.
Tomi is right, Boateng, Dante, Benatia or the other CBs for Bayern are tall guys, Aguero is going to have to out skill them but I mean that's going to be tough and they'll know crosses aren't going to work considering they have a leg up on Aguero. Dzeko needs to be in there at all times.

On the other hand I feel like we need to start with 3 CMs rather than 2. Gotze, Muller, Bastian, Alonso, Alaba are all technical players and could overrun our MF like last season and its not like Yaya has been at this best, placing Milner who can provide energy might be the right way to go about it. The MF battle will be key, we need to be able to keep up with them.

Looks like out young stars are getting the job done.
Looks like Fernando won't be back until the 27th and Jovetic until the 21th. Its on PhysioRoom.com
Oh my, the purple kits are real. Check the official club page. Can not decide if I love it or hate it
Its not bad but its not great, its just ok. Although last seasons 3rd kit was just brilliant, loved it a lot.
This years bestt kit is the home kit, in my opinion.
Guys is Mangala injured?
His not injured, his just not ready yet and with Demichelis/Kompany doing pretty well, MP has to pick the right moment to bring him in.
No, Probably not fully fit/match sharp as yet.
We must take no less than 3 points away, 3 points away! from the Little Horse Chelsea...but first we have to deal with the Giants Wednesday, ahhh tough days ahead.

And where is snitch! I thought we were going to have "no trouble beating Arsenal"... -_-"
