Yeah, he's starting in my three man defense

Yeah, both excellent. Even the John Stones pick is a very good one at this stage, given that he has been, and will continue to be, a starter for Pep. Shows there are still a lot of excellent players still unpicked.Sir Didier Drogba;n6455830 said:I can't believe Asensio was still available - I even thought I remembered him going, was gonna pick him myself a round or two ago but was sure he was gone.
Icardi is also another absolute steal at this stage.
You think Rakitic is a better passer than David Silva? Anyway, I compared my team to Ajax 95, not Barca (that was simply in reply to Mandieta6's claim that Barca had abandoned the tactic), and aimed to build a similar profile but as a modern iteration. I made a player-to-player comparison: http://soccergaming.com/forum/off-t...official-sign-up-thread?p=6455671#post6455671ShiftyPowers;n6455763 said:Those Barca players are all elite of the elite level passers. They don't have to defend beyond pressing because they always have the ball. You don't have anywhere near the level of talent in that respect. Rakitic is a better passer than anyone you have, to say nothing of Messi, Busquets, and Iniesta. To play that system you need to utterly dominate possession, and I'm not sure you will. You have a lot of bruisers and counter attack guys, not short passing, deliberate build up play types.
You didn't play 3-3-1-3 all season, just in a few matches. Take a look at the article I posted in my previous post.Dytza;n6455841 said:Shifty is right here, not to mention that the formation in that photo is nowhere near what the team actually looked liked on the pitch this season.
Xaviesta;n6455864 said:Stones wasn't that bad and he has quality. Will continue to start under Pep. City's problem in defense was the whole line of 4, not just one player.
also, he was the best CB available.
No counter? They were lethal on the counter.ShiftyPowers;n6455866 said:I just think in particular, Rijkaard, de Boer, and Seedorf were vastly more skilled players. That old van Gaal system would be totally ineffective in 2017 too. No creativity, just feed the wings and if by a miracle there isn't a 1v1, recycle. No counter. Also, Ronald de Boer started for that team didn't he? And he was a carelleiro, not a holder like keita.
