Incredibly organized defense. If Roma keeps playing like this even Pool and Madrid will suffer against them.

They'll be the weakest of the semi finalists and that's no mistake. It was easy for them today because Barca were like City....predictable. Also, that Barca defense finally got what was coming to them. Chelsea should have punished them in the prior tie. ...also Roma had chances in the first leg.

We will see. I don't fancy Roma, there's a reason they're 4th in Serie A.


Real Madrid is in which position in La Liga?

Pool is in which position in the EPL?

Sky, stop it. Which one be good football? Roma were better than Barcelona in this 2nd leg, and until that knockout 3rd goal in the first leg, they were better too. Their footie was more coherent and eye pleasing. To me anyhow.

As for City, they were awfully boring and tedious today. Predictable. Sure, the refs took away a legit 2nd goal from them but I really think Liverpool always had the ability to score the ONE goal that they needed. They, like someone else said, were also the better side.


Bros, I applaud Liverpool and Roma.....they played great and advance I have no issue with that.

But don't tell me you can't see the undertones in some of the posts here today...on Barcelona, Pep, Messi etc....

Okay, I hear you more clearly now...It started with Spain's dominance years ago alongside Pep's Barca. There are still people who hate Spain years after, still people who celebrated their world cup exit like it was gold. I think the 'malice' stems from the fact that many pundits acted like that way was the only way to play the sport.
I appreciate the 'tiki taka' footie. I also appreciate catenaccio. I think good football is a team that picks a style of play that preferably suits it's personnel, and applies that style to the maximum. That, to me, is good football. Doesn't necessarily have to be all out attack.

Okay, I wasn't aware Serie A had the same level of competition as La Liga or the PL.

Guardiola did not manage this second leg well at all. No point showing up against United ,the league could be won on another day.

Souness has been going on and on why City resorted to 4 at the back, unless he is only asking for the benefit of the audience,i thought that was obvious. It showed that City were afraid of their second half form, they knew they have a dodgy second half form.

Unless if Kompany was injured, I cannot understand his playing Dinho as a center half....or I thought Laporte was a center half...

Guardiola panicked with the way he approached this game,his loss to United did not help his preparation...psychologically it affected him and his tactical approach to this game...because united sent an alarm bell off.


When Me and Platinum said the same thing last weekend, people were telling us that its good to win the league and get it out of the way. :rotf: :rotf: :rotf: Okay o!

He has to upgrade their central defense. Otamendi is a joke. Kompany is not very good either. The bright spot is Laporte but he needs a partner. City have to upgrade that position and have needed to even before Pep got in town.

Agree 100% Bro....

Funny enough I think Citeh losing is bad news for all Citeh EPL rivals next year, I had hoped (though always doubted it) maybe they will win the CL and ease off. They will likely go all out again this transfer window and under this manager, those complaining now will likely only have more to complain about next year. We shall see...

Watching Guardiola complain about ref decision...wao..when Uefalona was enjoying the patronage of the refs he was riding the wave like a King. Ref Obvrebo says hi.

Same old story with Pep. At Bayern they were blinded, they lost 0-4 to RM and 0-3 to Barca and people were claiming that you cannot win the the treble every year. He managed to lower the expectations there.
Now out against Monaco and losing 1-5 to Liverpool. Any other City manager probably would not surive that.

I said it before. Teams that hold possession more their weak link is in the defense. It has been known about Barca for long but some don't take advantage. e don ope dem eyes well well :clap: :clap: :clap:

Strange you guys don't say this when these teams are winning. No system is foolproof. It has worked for these teams that is why they are top and it will work for them in other games.
...I have said same thing long time ago, when Pep was still at Barca. Opponents give them too much respect as they possess the ball hence the tiki taka thing. But back at the defense, Pique and that other former Liverpool/Argie guy will be lollygagging, no pressure on them.

Over two legs Liverpool killed Man City. Please, you have come again.


The issue is not Liverpool or Roma.....it is all you "Kick & Rush" army celebrating like you just gained independence....because a football style that has rightfully oppressed you guys had a bad day today.

Just remember that Barca and Citeh are already guaranteed to be back in this competition next season while your team Chelsea play in the Europa......ouch!


Horrible and sickening week for Pep and La Liga fanboys.
We wont be hearing from many of them anytime soon

KPOM Pep is not all that,how come since he left barca he has not make CL finals?
When a team like Monaco and Liverpool outplayed you with millions you have spend.It goes to show that if you give Pep to other average team he will be expose big time.
In Germany he was wining simply because of coaching Bayern,if he was coaching another team there he wouldn't have won jack there.

Otamendi is consistently trash. One of the worst 1v1 defenders. Dude is stealing a living and actually has pundits fooled calling him quality lol.

You lot should target him all game long in Russia. Abysmal defender.

I hope he is still trash till we meet him. I like the way he assisted Firmino for that second goal.

I agree 100%. The guy gives away the ball in dangerous areas at least 3 times a game. But I think the problem may be Pep's "play the ball out of defense, and I don't care if my defenders give away the ball" philosophy. John Stones is just as bad.
