I do believe someone is forcing him to play Robbery, but also,I think he is the anti-Pep in the sense that he doesn't experiment with positions at all.

The moment Coman got injured I would have started playing James on the wing. Heck, if he wants to give Sanches playing time I would even try him there (rather than lose one of our midfielders), as suggested by tflags but also something I've thought about lately. These may not be their ideal positions but overall as a team I think we would perform better.

Kovac doesn't seem open to this experimentation though, Goretzka as LB aside. That leaves him with no other choice but Robbery, except for maybe Gnabry.

We have an imp game next Sat maybe this is why.
Also we need experience vs this young side.
Robben vs Tagliafico.

The solution is to play 3-4-2-1or 4-2-2-2

FC Bayern München coach Niko Kovac says tactical flexibility is a major part of his preferred playing philosophy as well as being effective from set-pieces. [source]


Flexible..Yes. The same flexibility that we know since 2013. *none*

We need experience is a BS argument. We need speed.

Speed beats experience every time, all the time.

I also don't get Martinez in this line-up...he's been slow and shaky so far this season. Goretzka seems like a better fit currently.
She’s beauty, she’s grace, if u tell her she only watches football for the attractive players she’ll punch u in the face.

Total ho for Thiago :P

Not a very big on tho, was it? But fair point, that might be it.

My friend from Liverpool send me this:

" Is Ribery in better form than Gnabry ? "

Tell me how to answer him.
