re: Match Day 2/24 Champions League - jturn17
City needed to change this formation to a 4231 about 20 minutes ago. I really like Pellegrini, but I'm not sure there's any way he can continue to be their manager if he is so stubbornly attached to his 442. Getting dominated in the midfield like this without stellar play in the back is unacceptable...

re: Cuadrado vs. Bony - jturn17
I think Bony has the bigger impact because Aguero has been their only good striker. Dzeko has been pretty average/injured all year. They'll probably return to the 442 and try to rekindle the Aguero/Negredo duo from last year. They were incredible to watch in attack last year when they had two player...

re: 2014/2015 Winter Transfer Thread - jturn17
I think Bony's fee will be like 25m plus addons bringing it a little over 30m, if they're all met. I love Bony's game so I think he's worth that. I also think it's possible it may have to be a loan with an obligation to buy like City did with Negredo. They're really close to their FFP restriction...
