RIP Ugo Ehiogu.
Really sad news, just 44 years old. My best wishes to his family.
Just looking at City's ageing squad and wondering what way Pep is going to go with the overhaul.
Sagna - 34
Toure - 33
Zabaletta - 31
Kompany - 31
Kolarov - 31
Clichy - 31
Navas - 31
Silva - 31
Fernandinho - 31
Nolito - 30
Otamendi - 29
Fernando - 29
That's a lot of players coming to the end of their careers - almost all will likely have to be replaced within 2-3 years.
At the other end of the spectrum they have Iheanacho (20), Gabriel (20), Sane (21), Sterling (22) and Stones (22) as a highly promising group of youngsters already playing at a high level.
In the middle they just have De Bruyne (25), Gundogan (26), Delph (27) and Aguero (28).
So, who does he replace the old timers with - the very best youngsters? Or do they attempt to attract the best players in their prime? If it's the former, can they keep enough of the old heads around long enough to help the kids along?
I think I'd be gutted if Utd win the EL and, with other trophies, portray the first season under Jose as successful, considering how bad they actually are.
Considering us, that's quite disappointing.
I can certainly see arguments for the points you emphasized in quoting his post. Take away all their off-side goals/give the wrongly ruled off goals and they're down a good 15 points which is mid-table territory. Watch the match vs us at Anfield for exhibit A of boring. You can't possibly look at the back lines they've regularly put out with Carrick or Herrera as DM and think "that's a league leading defense"
Celta will put them out. Nice little attacking who score a lot of goals. They'll beat them at home then score at least 1 at OT.
May the force be with United,😁
