Why not centerback? :think:
Yeah with the Colombian national team he played LAM/LW and CAM.
With Porto he played mostly RW and CAM
With Monaco he played mostly RW
With Real Madrid he has played CAM/CM/RW/LW/LM/RM
James, Fabinho. Done.
I'm comfortable with James and Cuadrado as the wings for this reason. This is one of the most popular formations used by Pekerman:
The fanboy in me would prefer James, but I also know they getting a guy who could be world class at both central mid and rightback is very rare. We will need to replace...
I prefer him in a #10 too, but fact is he has been used as a RW or LW A LOT.
RW: 67 Games Played, 24 goals, 23 assists (~35% of the time)
LW: 42 Games Played, 17 goals, 14 assists (~22% of the...
A cutting winger is one of his main positions. He's not extremely pacy. But he is extremely talented, tricky, intelligent with a world class left foot. He played on the right side quite a bit for...
Yeah usually its the opposite. James only plays on the left side with the national team.
Once a chicken with its head cut off, always one.
James can, and has before. The only issue is the work rate. Can James work hard enough defensively to play a Cuadrado role? Silva can. James, not sure.
In any other league James would probably be...
My priorities would be:
-Left Footed Winger
We achieve that with 3 players:
Problem was you would always hear from the English media...."Well they play in Serie A". Now we're without doubt considered a top 4 team in the world along with Barcelona, Bayern, and Real.
At the very least, we're being taken much more seriously now.
I saw stupid crap as recent as 2015 from Arsenal fans saying they were a much better team than us. I think without doubt we're better...
Bookies have us as favourites against real madrid. Its very close, with some bookies favouring each or the same. But on average, we're slight favourites to win the UCL.
Lemar appears to be a good defensive player statistically
Out of wingers, wide attacking midfielders:
There are 100 players who have played >15 games in that position
He ranks this year:...
It's simple. Create a modern stadium. The atmosphere at Stadio Olympico vs. Juventus Stadium are so markedly different. I could go to a Juventus game live every week. Roma, I went once, I've had...
I want Real in the final. Mandzukic gets Zidane banned from the touchline by saying something about his sister and Zidane headbutts him.
Somewhere between 45-70 depending on competition. I think he will leave. If there is some demand, probably 50-60. If there is a lot of demand, 70. If there is surprisingly low demand, 45.
Lemar makes a lot of sense. Lemar and Cuadrado would be deadly. Lemar is a good defensive player too.
Result is you have 2 players in each position...
Did not say he was free. He is a steal. It is one of those situations where one of the Spanish giants push away a potentially world class player.
I also never said he would be a rotation option....
Juventus' common stock has more than doubled since (+132%) since January 2017.

We could use him just for the reason that if Dybala goes down, we can no creative advanced...
I have no problem with this. 15 minutes or so left. Shutting it down with our defense at this point makes sense.
Wonder if we'll see the Licht.
Barcelona will need to get more than 1 shot on target if they want to win. We have 2 :agree:
Too bad Suarez and Neymar can't learn from Messi. Messi is the only one who doesn't flop around. Neymar is a huge child.
Refs been good so far. Worth noting there is a 3rd party ref rating website. This guy is near the top in terms of performances.
Mandzu is missing the next round for sure.
"comeback next year"
Or Sturaro who we'd like if he was on the other team...
Looking forward to Cuadrado shredding that joke of a defense.
Story of Lichtsteiner, Chiellini and Mandzukic.
Tactical changes potentially says Allegri?
Wish we had the luxury to introduce Cuadrado at half, which would be an absolute nightmare for a tired Barcelona.
Honestly, we'll have no excuses if...
Apparently he's good for tomorrow (football italia)
The only situation I can think of is if Coman refuses to sign with Bayern, similar to Salah a few years ago. If that happens, and agreed upon deal also requires a player signing a contract. If the...
We can guess our approach completely by whether we line up with a 4-2-3-1 or a 3-5-2.
Bookies have us at 2nd best odds. Real have better odds :andyandbarcelona:
Miss the net?
Well go Bayern, go Atletico.
I have bets on 6 matches, I need to get 6 right...so far...to win 172.5x my bet.
-Juve beats Barcelona :ID:
-Monaco beats Dortmund :ID:
-Bayern beats Real...
That's exactly it. Sometimes skill forces mistakes, and Suarez has a lot of it. We did quite well against MSN.

He used to be everyone's favourite whipping boy. Bon Bon...
A bit of both - obvious if you play a very strong positional game, the chances of getting scored on are much lower, but sometimes remarkable players do impressive things even with good positional...
I remember when many hated him here, which I never understood. Legitimately one of the best players in Serie A for the last 5 years. He was actually one of least risk moves.
You can't expect perfection out of him. We're talking about him defending one of the best strikers in the world. If Higuain did that to Pique, would we say Pique screwed up? No. We'd praise Higuain....
Lol. Not to say he wouldn't be effective, but remember how much he ****ed and complained the last time he had to play LW?
Honestly, as long as we're playing direct, Lichtsteiner isn't a bad thing.
If we can score another...we can probably sit back completely and just look to burn Barcelona on the counter.
The maybe a switch to the 3-5-2
Mandzukic for Marchisio
Cuadrado for Lichtsteiner
Alves for Barzagli
That being said...I'm worried to take Cuadrado off because he is such a counter attack...
I wonder if we will see Mandzukic come off for Marchisio and Alves for Barzagli later in the the game, and switch to the 3-5-2. That would be very Italian. Then take out Khedira for Rincon.
