Ok so Conte is proving you can win with three at the back (so far) in the league.

When pep was hired, I think some (including myself) wondered if he could have success in this league with all his complicated systems and weird quirks like playing fullbacks as tucked in central midfielders and CBs etc.

He started off the season with a traditional 4 at the back and traditional midfield shape and city started really well. I never said they had a good defense, but they were defending well enough and still blowing people out of the water with their attack. I was impressed to see Pep deviate/adapt from his norm in other leagues and find success.

I think the most obvious of example of him adapting was when city beat us and afterwards Mou basically said we prepared for them to do certain things Pep usually does (specifically reference the tucked in fullbacks as the reason for playing Lingard and Mkhitaryan in wide areas, and we all remember how crap they were), but it didn't work out in the first half and Mou had to to make some changes.

Now they look quite rocky at the back and have looked that way for weeks, I think particularly since they've gone away from 4 at the back and started treating this like FIFA or something.

Anyways, we really need to capitalize on this and win. It's clear we will be competing with spurs for top 4, but the others are not so clear. It might be city who we are competing with, same with arsenal etc, so cant let this slip.
I think Liverpool fans heard this somewhere before "cant let this slip" ... boy that went well
@SIF, Pep is a little overconfident and its caught up to him. Part of thinks he still thinks his in Bundesliga, were he can try out new things and formations but its the PL. His tried this out and we are yet to win with a back 3.

Although to be fair to Pep, we were missing Otamendi, Fernandinho and Aguero. This game, I see why he played a back 3. Looking at the back, we only had Stones and Stones is still young, needs a strong partner along with him. I think Pep went for a back 3 to better support Stones but without a quality a DM and two reliable CB, not Kolarov and Sagna, we were in trouble to begin with.
Mourinho kicks a water bottle, gets sent off and gets one match ban as well. Arsene Wenger shoves the 4th official, and no one bats an eye. What the actual f**k??

Sure, kicking the "holy" water bottle is a far greater sin than dusting off the offical's jacket.

We sound like all the non-United fans from Fergie era.

Wheres that alexis barca kid lol...who waxes lyricall about pep .where is he..i need to have a word with him..
+11
saw this on facebook: "When you're playing a decent BPL side and not a bunch of German bradwurst manufacturers or Spanish paella farmers."

hahahhaha
+7
Kind of stupid...you don't farm paella...paella is one of Spanish national dishes. Unless they're refering to Spanish people as paella farmers
+3
It could've been true if City was on the same level as Barca and Bayern
+1
if only paellas grew on trees
@bavaria, the irony in level is both of you are not playing well at the moment, maybe this is your new level?
I hate professional commentators/pundits.

They are all so expert at stating what has happened AFTER it has happened to fit their narrative. Man City was 'a defensive juggernaut' before this game. At half-time, they were suddenly full of 'defensive frailties all season'...

You don't have to be an expert at anything to be able to make analysis like this. You just have to have a decent grasp of the language and not be a total idiot (the second requirement isn't always fulfilled, however).
+6
but hey, Pep said that EPL is totally the same as Spain and Germany leagues, and there is not much difference.

P.s.: fishing here for some (you know what team) fans
+2
Baiting.

Then edited for obvious baiting.
+1
trust me in the past that didnt stop them
waiting for Barca fans with bags of popcorns :P
+6
Here they come...
#bait Pep is tactically clueless just like he was at Bayern, when faced with tough decisions he simply implodes. Aguero and Fernandinho suspended he decides to play back 3 against a fast side who won their league title on the back of fast counter attacking football and simply got ripped apart

Unless he is saved by Xavi Iniesta Messi....

(are they here yet?) :P
+3
Pep is garbage
LMAO. so glad we didn't buy stones. huge huge mistake to put it on a plate for vardy
one mistake doesnt make you a bad player. he's talented, just way overrated at this stage in his career.
Of course one mistake doesn't make you a bad player, but unfortunately Stone makes more than once ever since he played for City lol
+4
Feel bad for England NT they got Cahill and Stones as starting CBs there is no coming back from that slippery slope
SIF - Did you just watch one mistake?
Lol no, but the way that statement is phrased, it's like this mistake confirms he's s**t. Personally, I think he's very overrated, but at the same time, I do think he's got a lot of talent.
http://outside90.com/john-stones-tops-premier-leagues-10-most-error-prone-players-since-2013-infograhpic/

In fact he has been one of the most error prone defenders in epl, but that may have to do with how everton was/is set up
Aguero makes such a big difference to city's attack
I hope LC scores six. we need city to self destruct
Make that 3-0 after 20mins.
OUT OUT Guardiola hahahaha
Enjoying it lol 😂
The last time we laughed we dropped points so let's chill and observe first.
+2
kek, we've lost too many points already, might as well just laugh while we have a chance.
+12
I'm pretty sure we will drop points but this is funny. Laugh people, laugh. Only laughs we may get this season. Lol
+2
^ that's funny.
Haha fair point
crazy matchday with all the 3 goals the teams are scoring
They're still 9 points above us
+4
Wonderful game!citys defence when being put under pressure is pure comedy to watch.
A year ago or so i really thought stones might be a very good signing for us.thankfully mourinho is our manager and not me,bailly is wonderful
^ didnt he tried to get stones to chelsea last season for 40m but everton declined?
+2
Yeah i also remember something about that.glad we got bailly (eventhough most of us never heard of him before) and not stones
It doesn't make sense to not laugh due to some weird jinx fear. Whatever will happen will happen, carpe diem bitches
+1
BearWithFish - Thankgod everton declined and city ended up paying 47m :P
Yea screw jinx. I just lost to Spurs on FIFA, don't blame me.
