(Lone wolf dies, pack of wolves live)-Song of Ice and Fire
Let’s just make a joke. Based on the performance of the White Roses in this game, I guess that the boys in Leeds should all be from the "Game of Thrones" series, the King of the North Stark family. Fans. Their effortless group impact play, smooth and exciting frontcourt small-scale advancing series, and the wolfish desire to win to the end are all moving. Bielsa is like the leadership of a certain company who gives a huge salary + high overtime pay, inspiring his disciples to show their fighting spirit like a pack of wolves, and finally win from the blue moon Manchester City, which is far better than himself. Shi, got a precious point on the road to Bao (ou) level (zhan).
Next, let's talk about the situation of the game scene. Although we are already familiar with Bielsa’s obsession with offensive football and his passion for his football philosophy, when Bielsa really only deployed single midfielder Calvin Phillips to face Guardiola, the author Still subconsciously took a breath. It seems that for Bielsa, since the team sits on Elland Road and has met his believer Guardiola's challenge, as a senior who has given Guashuai a little bit of enlightenment and guidance in technical and tactical thinking, it is necessary It's a happy thing to show up the momentum of head-to-head, and to have a "you won't stop if you can't run" peak duel with juniors.
However, the consequence of Bielsa’s choice is that even though Manchester City’s frontcourt luxury attack group is compromised due to the lack of a positive Indian center, their talent and talent are already enough to put Leeds United’s midfielder into a crisis. Up. In addition, the White Rose’s original weak defense line, in the first half of this campaign, also frequently sent deadly pass and catch errors on his side, allowing Blue Moon to continuously get the ball and quickly defend. Switch to attack. In addition, Phillips still needs to add assists as a single midfielder (his defensive coverage in the game is better than nothing), so Leeds United's defensive performance in protecting the top area of the arc is very poor. We can also often see the pictures of people like De Bruyne, Foden and even Rodrie running wildly and dribbling the ball on this open prairie. Sterling's goal in the 17th minute was basically the result of Leeds United's defensive end in the first half. (Cooper made a mistake + the front of the penalty area had almost no effective protection. Lin easily completed the inside cut and hit the door).
但是，贝尔萨选择的结果是，即使曼彻斯特城的前场豪华进攻集团由于缺乏积极的印度中锋而受到损害，但他亚博在哪里下载软件们的才华和才华已经足以使利兹联的中场陷入危机。向上。此外，在战役的前半段，白玫瑰最初的弱防线也经常送出致命的传球并接过错误，使蓝月亮能够不断接球并快速防守。切换到攻击。此外，菲利普斯仍然需要作为一名中场球员来增加助攻（他的防守覆盖率总比没有好），因此利兹联队在保护弧顶区域的防守表现非常差。我们还经常可以看到De Bruyne，Foden甚至Rodrie这样的人的照片，他们在这个开阔的大草原上疯狂奔跑并把球运到球上。斯特林在第17分钟的进球基本上是利兹联在上半场防守端的结果。 （库珀犯了一个错误+禁区的前面几乎没有有效的保护。林轻松完成了内切并撞上了门）。
However, Manchester City's lack of troops still affected the efficiency of Blue Moon in destroying the city. It stands to reason that with Manchester City taking the lead so quickly, if Manchester City and Guashuai continue to follow the previous momentum and Leeds with a lot of mistakes, goals will definitely follow. However, it seems that Guashuai and the Blue Moon soldiers did not have a strong idea of "the leftovers should be brave to chase the poor." Although Leeds United’s empty mid lane left room for Manchester City’s attackers to make a fuss, they were disappointed in the selection and handling of the final pass and shot. In addition, Leeds United's defense on the wing is fairly passable. Although for Ailin, defending Sterling is a headache for him, but the former still relied on the method of suppressing Sterling to the outside to prevent him from cutting inside, limiting Manchester City as much as possible. The explosion point.
Conversely, when Leeds United's high press gradually took effect. White Rose's offensive system is indeed impressive. Judging from this game, Bielsa's skill in training the team to play offensive football is really impressive. Although there is no doubt that the personal abilities of the White Rose soldiers are not as good as Manchester City's "swift and unreasonable" attack line, their wolves-like swift and well-organized offensive routine is worth our applause. For example, when the counterattack is mainly on the left/right side, Leeds United will often have players to transition to the side of the big penalty area in the same area. The offensive direction and strategy in these "Wolf Destroy" minds is very Bielsa-like soberness: if you can find the loopholes in Manchester City's defense on this side and further penetrate the penalty area, you will immediately rely on a small area to cooperate and cut in ( Kick the wall to cooperate, and then plug in); if it fails, immediately transfer from the rib to the big penalty area, hand over to the side and rib on the other side, and look for opportunities again. With such a cycle of offensive, Manchester City's defense will also expose many problems.
In addition, there are time bombs like Mendy on Manchester City's defense. Although since being brutally broken by Traore last season, Mendy has learned a little lesson and tried to avoid losing to the opponent’s wing wing in physical confrontation. Costa's physical advantage is quite obvious), but Mendy's shortcomings in quotient and game concentration are still not so easy to overcome.
In the second half, Leeds United (in fact, it is defensive desperate pursuit, the attack is more risky), which is against Manchester City, launched a more violent counterattack. And Bielsa's two substitutions were just right to inject the team's counterattacks. In place of Jack Harrison, Alioschi and Roberts, who did not show enough confidence in the first half, were replaced, and Poveda and Rodrigo were ordered to play the King of Kings. And the facts proved that these two men deserved Bielsa's trust, they became the two sharp knives of Leeds United in the second half counterattack. In the previous few games, Rodrigo, who was a little depressed, gave full play to the advantages he can bring in more than half an hour in the second half. Because of his existence, Leeds United's offensive mode can be a bit richer. Earlier, Bamford had been in the backcourt of Manchester City by himself. It was somewhat difficult to support, and Rodrigo's presence also liberated Bamford's choice after taking the ball.
Not only can he threaten Manchester City's goal alone, but he can also complete aerial work in coordination with Bamford. Rodrigo's two central posts show the effectiveness of his three-dimensional attack on Leeds United.
Therefore, in the 59th minute, Rodrigo scored a goal by Edson's mistake in the corner kick, which was reasonable. Although the new "answer" Ruben Diaz for Manchester City's defense in this campaign was not bad, the entire defensive system of Blue Moon has not yet been clear.
As mentioned above, Calvin Phillips can't stand up to Manchester City's long drive as a single midfielder. Think about it the other way around, when facing the Leeds United team assaulted by wolves, when did Rodri feel less pressure? What's more, in terms of offensive efficiency, the White Rose, who played in a small range and played quickly, is actually better than the somewhat lax Manchester City. Therefore, it seems that a reckless "suicide attack" like Leeds United will be blown by Manchester City sooner or later, but when the two sides step into the green field, the side that is more grouped, more organized and motivated will be closer. victory.
Finally, let’s summarize. As we all know, Manchester City’s current problem lies in the rear defense disorder. Although most of the time they can meet the tactical requirements of the coaches to start the ball and control the ball in the backcourt, facing Leeds United are so aggressive and gritted their teeth to fight with you. For the team, Manchester City’s defense performance may not be much better than that of its opponents; and although Manchester City’s offensive line is luxurious, the current frustration without front line is obviously unable to exert their greatest power. In terms of talent and talent, few teams in the entire European football community have an offensive combination that can compare with Manchester City. But in the game, Guardiola had to work harder to adjust the running routines and interleaving patterns of these talented disciples when launching an offense. After all, although De Bruyne’s pancake kung fu is amazing, he also needs other people to understand how to run the passing route that Tintin wants to really create an excellent shot opportunity (of course, as long as Aguero Comeback, this problem will be solved).
