For the Friday the 13th CL Seminfinals draw prediction
Bayern vs Liverpool
R.Madrid vs Roma
Wow!! Friday the 13th has stuck for Bayern!!
So it will be Bayern vs R. Madrid and Liverpool vs Roma
And in the Europa League it's A. Madrid vs Arsenal and Marseille vs Salzburg!!
Arsene Wenger is hanging it up after 22 years at Arsenal!! It's about damn time!!
I'm predicting a Liverpool vs R. Madrid Champions League Final!!
Liverpool will beat Roma 4-2 on aggregate
R. Madrid will beat Bayern 4-3 on aggregate!!
Alisson played great till now
His defense has let him down!! Shit I was actually considering J. Jesus for Brazil!!
Can we try out Ederson ? Time is very less now I know but still ...........
I know Roma's defense was responsible for this disaster but still Alisson's confidence will be very low now .
Makes no sense to do that this late in the games especially when Brazil defense can protect Alisson far better than Roma.
Knee jerk reaction. Can't predict when goalies will mess up.
As much as I think Ederson is the better player, you gotta stick with Alisson. Maintain that continuity.
Just like I'm sure Germany will stick with Neuer when he returns!!
What about the no. 9 position. Should Gabriel Jesus start for continuity, or should the in form Firmino start?
Very tricky ....I bet tite is scratching his head now
If i was tite, i would go with Jesus because Jesus, neymar and coutinho have great chemistry among them... Its a matter of strategic fitment rather than anything else. Firmino has not played with the NT so much ..But current form wise firmino looks better though.
This is a great problem for Tite to have. He will go with Jesus first because he has performed better and has shown the better chemistry. Now, if Jesus is struggling badly, I think he makes the switch.
We also have a Douglas Costa or Willian problem. Both is excellent first options off the bench and both are more than capable of starting.
I don't think Firmino has had one impressive game with Brazil. I could be mistaken. Hasn't had too many starts, but still. Jesus hit the ground running and seemed to fit the team like a glove. He is still green in many areas, but if he is good I'd say he starts. If Firmino was a real goal scorer it'd be a different story.
Yeah, I’m struggling to think of one good game.
Neymar probably won't be happy with Tuchel if PSG get Tuchel in place of Emery. He is a strict disciplinarian.
Tuchel has had some success with dealing with difficult personalities though. He got the mentally weak Mkhitaryan to give him consistent performance, and also got Dembele and Aubameyang to buy in, both of whom turned difficult shortly after leaving.
From what I hear, Neymar is not really one to not train unlike other Brazilians in the past. I think where there may be problems is if the clash heads tactically. Neymar obviously wants a lot of freedom on the pitch. I don't know much about Tuchel honestly, just heard that he is a disciplinarian. Neymar seems to be the type of player that only will obey big names.
Yes very Romario-ish!!!
My crystal ball
R.Madrid will beat Bayern 3-1 today and Liverpool will beat Roma 2-1 tomorrow!!
And Thursday Arsenal will send Arsene Wenger on a high and beat A.Madrid 3-0 and Marseille will beat Salzburg 2-0!!
It's hard to say because he hasnt really been starting for Brazil. He also hasnt scored a goal for Brazil in 18 months.
In fact, because many Brazilians were unfamiliar with him, they really let him have it when he missed some very very easy goals. Calling for him to never return for Brazil. Standard Brazilian prejudice against players who never really played domestically.
But I havent been really impressed with him in the games he has played in. While he has no doubt been one of the top performers in Europe this season, I do wonder how his talents will translate to the national team. Like, is he capable of coming off the bench and performing? Or will he miss a few sitters like he's done previously for us.
We'll see. He just needs to train a lot more with the team. I remember him being a bit injury plagued last season. This year is his most healthy one, and well, Brazil hasn't played too much.
I remember one: vs. Austria in 2014 coming on as a sub. That's about it really as far as I remember being impressed with Firmino.
