    It was another case of the one chance one goal we've suffered for the past 5 years.

    I remember Ireland taking Messi out. Glorious.

    And Petrov! The good times.

    1-0 Girona. Only caught the 2nd half but we looked disjointed and slow in the buildup. A lot like Pelegrini's 3rd season. But after all the acquisitions, this team has to play faster. I don't care who started or didn't. The play has to be quicker. Enough with slow cooker football. Move it forward quickly and the attackers have to take players on. Enough with the boring slow stuff.

    How come Mendy and Roberts didn't get any minutes?

    They had more than one chance

    Our problem was not taking any of ours, which was a reflection of last season

    Surprised so many people have taken this game seriously. Has as much relevance as city beating Madrid 4-1 a few weeks back.

    Main things to take from that;

    First and foremost, Sane absolutely cannot play wingback and looked dreadful there.

    Mangala was our best player, did his job very efficiently and covered for Sane too. Really hope he stays, could turn out to be vital for us in certain games against long ball merchants that have a team of brutes, i.e United. If he's kept i think he could prove to be this seasons Yaya, obviously different circumstances but the same kind of impact from Pep not really wanting him at the start of the season to him playing a big role in our season.

    Tosin looked alright, wouldn't be entirely comfortably with him starting in the league just yet though but as 5th cover he's sufficient. Cup games for him this season.

    A lot of people seemed to be very impressed with Bernardo, didn't really see that today, some good signs but i thought he looked a bit off the pace yet which is to be expected given his late comeback. He'll probably be eased into games, wouldn't be overly surprised if he didn't start until the league cup.

    We need shooting practice

    Anybody blaming Bravo for the goal (and i've seen a good amount already) need to get a grip

    Quite telling that certain players didn't get on the pitch. Namely Zinchenko and Roberts. Almost certainly suggests their futures are not with us for this season at least

    Luiz looked very tidy and dynamic for them, defo worth keeping an eye on him this season. Maffeo looked very good too, remains to be seen how much of that was due to just how clueless Leroy was in that position though.
