I did not see any thread about them for the upcoming season so I decided to start one. They have just signed Nolito and will probably sign another winger. How do we think he will line up? With Nolito and another winger coming in, I can't see how he would fit Silva, Sterling KDB and he new players...

I can’t find a thread on this so apologies if it’s been done to death, I haven’t been on Caf much since City match. Anyone find out what Pep said to Poggy at full time?

Nothing but nothing can compare to the look on Sourness face when Pogba scored. Almost instantly the game ended, the media were looking for excuses for City.

How will he fare in his first season? Instant impact making Liverpool serious contenders for top 3 or does he require serious amount of rebuilding? Squad looks awfully fragile when a couple of key players are out so surely this won't be plain sailing for The Normal One?

Well he probably most certainly won't get sacked unless they get into serious meltdown, but how long do you think Pep will last at City?

Do we have any right to criticise Jose for anything but the Sevilla tie this season? We need to win 5 of our last 6 games to get 86 points, we could potentially get 89 if we win all of our games. That would be enough to win the title most seasons and either of those totals would make us...

That seemed to be the tactical change at half time. Pogba went to LCM, Sanchez left forward with Lingard CAM. We played with so much more tempo, desire and energy.
