Villarreal is trying to rope-a-dope Liverpool. Keep 11 men behind the ball, let Liverpool tire out, and then hit them with some counters in the final 15 minutes. ...

re: Chelsea 2021/2022 Season Long Thread | CFC’s “Not Bad All Things Considered” Campaign - TxTiger82
Convert to back four (not enough elite CBs) and two-striker system (only way to get Lukaku going and they spent too much on him not to get him going). Try to bring in Kounde, an outside back, and a striker who pairs well with Lukaku. The rest is fine and will fit into whatever specific scheme Tu...

[quote]You think you're breaking some sort of news here?[/quote] Just pointing out that many folks celebrating this political touchdown are contributing to Disney's profits and/or profiting from Disney. The first thing is hypocritical. The second is masochistic. ...

The average liberal is also way less likely to care about sports, hence less likely to have an ESPN subscription. This really is about the right eating its own tail and it is pretty hilarious....

[quote]Liberals absolutely go to Disney. I know a family of Democrats that goes every few months. Yes, Disney freaks.[/quote] On average, liberals are more likely than conservatives to own a passport and seek "cultural experiences" on vacation. Conservatives are more likely take a cruise (which D...

re: Florida’s Senate Passes Bill To End Disney’s Self Governance - TxTiger82
I'm going to point out two uncomfortable facts for the people of this thread: 1) Disney owns ESPN. 2) If you have a retirement account or investment portfolio that includes a major S&P 500 index, you own a small part of Disney. Carry on....

re: UCL Quarterfinals - Leg 1 - TxTiger82
[quote]RandySavage[/quote] Tuchel himself recognized his tactical mistake and changed to a back four, and Chelsea's defense was significantly better after he did. Tuchel knows he fricked up, dude, that's why he made the change. Unfortunately, it was too late. ...

re: UCL Quarterfinals - Leg 1 - TxTiger82
[quote]Tactics are so overblown in matches like this.[/quote] According to you, Chelsea had the better team. And yet, Real Madrid won by two goals. You say the difference is 100% attributable to a striker in great form, but how did they get that striker the ball in scoring position when they have...

re: UCL Quarterfinals - Leg 1 - TxTiger82
[quote]AC was the problem[/quote] You always blame the players when the manager doesn't set them up to succeed. Asking Christensen to mark Vini Jr until James can get back to help out is just bad tactics. TT needs to go 4-3-3 in the second leg and use James to neutralize Vini. But this won't ...

re: UCL Quarterfinals - Leg 1 - TxTiger82
[quote]created significantly more chances.[/quote] Chelsea created more shots, but only put 5 on target -- same number as Madrid. Possession was closer to even before the third goal -- after that Madrid packed it in. IMO Chelsea has a serious problem without James AND Chilwell on the pitch, an...

re: UCL Quarterfinals - Leg 1 - TxTiger82
[quote]we are definitely the better team[/quote] Player for player? Sure. But Madrid clearly had the better tactics. Setting aside the fluky third goal, they created the first two by using Vini and Valverde to stretch Chelsea's back three on quick attacks and counters, which isolated Benzema on S...

[quote]Maybe you should worry about stopping the Benz show [/quote] It's over. Chelsea ain't beating Madrid in the Bernabau, much less by three goals. Let's move on to the relevant question: Can City stop him? IMO yes but not directly -- they need to control the game and keep the ball away fr...
