We watched this very boring video, 500 times, of Sacchi doing defensive drills, using sticks and without the ball, with Maldini, Baresi and Albertini. We used to think before then that if the other players are better, you have to lose. After that we learned anything is possible – you can beat better teams by using tactics." Jurgen Klopp

The speed and precision at which they attack you is scary :scared:


You seem to be changing your tone? Next time, when a football mind like Oloye is talking, keep quiet and take notes.

For anyone assuming Munich will run over Lyon,....not so fast.

This Lyon team can defend like hell, and the UCL has proven too many teams that good defensive teams should never be underestimated.

Oh please look at those short brainless City attackers and tell me they pose any threat to Lyon. I will love to see them against those German machines who are threat both in the air and on the ground. City offered no threat in the air, thus limiting the threat they posed to Lyon.


Chief, that Lyon team can counter like no man's business. And they work really hard for each other defensively. Juve couldn't break them down in their own house. And they make all their money in the air.

I fancy Lyon more than PSG. We go see wetin happen.



:rotf: Juve with their midfield over the last 2 years cannot even break open the legs of a whore in a brothel. Abeg no make me laugh.

Its a one-leg semi final, which means its a "final." I expect Lyon to come out fighting and ready to kill and die! But i am reading your post and I know you have never watched Bayern play. Anyone who has watched Bayern play once will know that Bayern runs as much as, if not more than anyone. Even yesterday the commentator said they had run the most distance of any team in the CL (please check to confirm, I didnt confirm). Go and ask Chelsea. Bayern players are fooking fit and conditioning is a huge part of their game


You are an illiterate. Learn to read instead of picking pointless fights on the internet.

All I said was that we shouldn't automatically assume Bayern will beat Lyon and they should not be underestimated. I stand by what I said. If Lyon had taken their chances early this match might be a different story. They didnt, Bayern didnt miss theirs.

Respect to Bayern but the match is not over.

That may or may not be true. What is true and what I have demanded of you is that when Oloye is speaking, you must shut your mouth and pick up a pen and paper. I expect you will do as I have demanded.

Nope. Pep's change of tactics had less to do with Lyon and more to do with the profile of the players he had faith in for that game.

The bottomline is Pep's most relatable players are not the fastest sprinters so he had to adjust his formation to mitigate that weakness. when deploying the Rodrigo, Gundogan plus KDB, in a track meet, they will struggle especially with unreliable CBs behind them.

I think you should listen to his interview after the game...


“What we have done is try to cover our weak points,” Guardiola explained on BT Sport. “And also comparing to their strong points.

“They attack the channels really well and I didn’t want to leave them. That’s why.
“We then unblocked our respect a bit, we struggled initially, but in the same shape we attacked well.

Gotta admire Lyon's fight sha. They are taking it to Bayern and holding their own in that midfield.
Its their attack that has let them down.

It may quit be the best answer. But I do not suffer fools gladly. I discipline them and if I have to beat the f00l out of you, I will do it. Let this be the last time you challenge Oloye here again. Or else!

... because he did not have players that could match them up in terms of physical attributes unlike Bayern Munich that doesn't have to adjust due to their superior quality physically and talent wise. Pep is not alone by the way but when another manager (like Lampard) did the same - switching to 343 - due to shortfall of players meeting the profile needed for the task, you turn a blind eye ... But if it's Pep, it makes a helluva sense :lol:

Enough in this game to show the final is anybody's game...

PSG will hurt this Bayern team...too many leftovers in their performance...

To be fair, Ekambi has had some inspiring moments in this years competition.
He just had a very rough game.
