PSG wouldn't be in the semis if Araujo didn't get that stupid red. Hakimi and Dembele got owned by their former club. Congrats to Dortmund. They need tons of luck in the final in order to win it. If it's Madrid against them, the chance is even lesser. Those bitches hardly lose a final.

Was Hakimi a system player or is his role in PSG just dreadful for him? I would count myself as a massive Hakimi fan prior to his PSG move but yeesh, it’s just not happening for him there.

Think a little bit of both. His qualities were perfectly reflected in our system. Lots of freedom and space to attack, especially in transition.

At PSG they often play in the opponent's half, in small spaces and with a winger in front of him who is already occupying his space. As a result, he is not given the opportunity to run into the spaces and he is 'stuck' in too small a space to be able to make his action.

For us he would be the best RWB in the world, for PSG he is one of many.

Hakimi is only fit for wingback role in a back 3 formation. Simple as that.

When he went to Dortmund they tried him as a fullback at first but it was a defensive disaster. Favre realised it pretty fast. He switched to a back 3 formation and it did wonders to Hakimi. His partnership with Sancho was a thing of beauty.

Then Hakimi came to Inter where he was a perfect fit for Conte's system. After starting slowly, he had a great first season.

But then he made the mistake to go to PSG. The problem is PSG don't have a proper sporting project. They just randomly sign players they like and just expect them to adjust to coach plans. For the first time Hakimi was asked to adjust instead of his coaches adjusting to him and he couldn't do it.

Hakimi is a great player and when he is used properly he can be devastating. But he has certain strengths and certain weaknesses. He can't work in any circumstances.

Mostly happy for Reus. He deserves a beautiful ending after the things he has gone through.
What has he gone through exactly. Being injured half his career and never reaching his potential like a jillion other mildly talented players.

Mildly? Ok. Let's say we strongly disagree on that. Peak Reus was world class player getting linked with Mourinho's Real.

Don't have one.

Yeah, this is by far their biggest problem. And I don't think they randomly sign players, they have a type and it's brainless speedsters.:lol:
And in general you can see they have a footballing iq problem. Only player with a brain in that team is vitinha.

It's astonishing how they can't figure that stuff out with all the money they have. It's like all of their artificiality from all that qatar money translates perfectly into their team chemistry, and they just can't make the leap forward in that sense. And it's not like that has to be the case with those types of owners, man city is the great example of that.

Skriniar has relegated to the bench option. Interesting, I thought he is a world class.

BVB's admin did not hold back in response to PSG's tweet in 2020 after knocking BVB out of the Champions League.

Did he? We forced him out just like we did with Onana etc. What other offers he had?
Nice result today, one of the villains vanquished.
Now it's time for Bayern to eliminate evil from Madrid so we can have a beautiful final night.




Dortmund is having the same path as we did. Lost title on a last day then having even worst season next year just to reach CL final in the end for a great satisfaction. Hopefully this time final result will be different.

That could be some goal by Kane.
