Pep plays only one way, been really disappointed with him.


i noticed that Pep's City doesn't like being attacked.
The teams that have attacked City fearlessly this season have caused them lots of problems and got lots of joy, starting with Celtic in the group stages that was the first sign.

The game against Liverpool this Sunday should be fun to watch.

Anyway, this loss is squarely on naive Pep tactics. Defending is part of the game.

I don't know that defending or lack thereof was necessarily the key issue in the loss. For me it was clearly the inability to convert the chances created. And there were a legion of them...

We watched this very boring video, 500 times, of Sacchi doing defensive drills, using sticks and without the ball, with Maldini, Baresi and Albertini.

Everton signed Lookman recently so Iheanacho should join a club like Spurs or Arsenal or even Liverpool

The presumption is had they scored one of the missed chances, they would've kept scoring but that's theory and not reality. In reality, when they did score, Monaco took over the initiative and eventually scored the winning goal. What could've happened is not bankable. What's bankable though, is what you already have or had on the score board like the 5 goals from leg 1 and the 1 goal last night before they scored the third. In both of those bankable situations, City was in the driver's seat and in control of their destiny.

This is CL. There are no easy opponents at this level of the competition. Yaya played well in the first leg and even though Pep initially started with an attacking plan - which I understand because its his philosophy, and even though I disagree with his approach, Yaya wasn't an option when they were down and chasing the game at 0-2 but he could and should have brought on Yaya after they had finally managed to battle back and edge ahead on away goals rule with less than 20 mins left. Generally, when teams are holding onto a slim lead with less than 20mins left against a difficult opponent (especially away from home), the manager tightens up the remaining midfield gaps with subs with further consideration on defending set pieces and obvious desperate aerial balls that are lumped in the box with the clock winding down. All the winning manger do this including many that have an attacking philosophy. This one is mostly on Pep and I'm far from his biggest critic but he & City didn't have to go out like this. They should be in the QF.

The way his team passed the ball lethargically at the back was annoying. They got caught too many time. Defending is part of the game, man.

Because Monaco didn't have "a legion of chances" that they could have scored from, right?

No mind am.

I swear these stans are so blinded by The Revolution.

When he wins it's tactical revolution and pure jizzing, when he's outcoached it's the players fault

Sevilla did the same against LCFC and I kept thinking "wtf"

You are played a team that is pressing you, and here you are passing at the back

Do these NDL coaches scout their opponents?

I understand your point but I'm analyzing the game as it played out, not how it SHOULD HAVE.

And based on how it played out, the key issue was the missed chances.

Paris SG did this against Barcelona and I was told that it was their playing style. Meanwhile Rabiot, Veratti and Matuidi kept losing the ball right in front of their 18. Irritating!! Spurs does it sometimes and Dier, slow coach Dier, gets caught out.

Monaco has been a speed track for years!. Remember when they played a two-winged striker system leveraging Henry on one side of the wing and Ikpeba on the other!. Ikpeba then was known as "king of Monaco". The two will cut in from the wings with speed and both had goal scoring ability
