Re: UEFA Champions/Europa League 2012-13 Thread
Zonal marking is hardly a clever tactic on his part tbf. The guy with a running start against a guy standing still is always gonna win that contest in the air if the ball is good.
it's way too easy to blame mancini for this. where's the blame for lescott not headering the ball away for their 2nd goal? that's not tactical ineptitude on bobby's part.
Didn't watch the match but it looked like City would have lost even if Mancini's tactics were on. Defensively they're a shambles right now (just like us mind) and their midfield gets overrun in Europe. I really don't get the 3-5-2 formation with City and Mancini's inconsistency on it. Enjoying Micah burying it though. Now they're looking at Ajax at home as a must win match just for Europa League Football.
LEAVE IT UP TO UNITED TO FLY THE FLAG.
Watched Dortmund/Madrid. Madrid were lifeless again. Looked in pre-season mode again but it's too far into the season to be using that excuse anymore. Majority of the team don't look like they care right now. Should have been 2 or 3 goals difference if it wasn't for Casillas. Dortmund were very good though. I'd KILL for a Falcao/Lewandowski strike pair.
