    Typical City. Miss chance after chance to kill the game off at 1-0 and then concede an equaliser.

    Never seen a team pass backwards as much as them.Pirlo is a luxury now,must take up a lot of budget that could go on other players.Poor finishing cost today.

    I agree. It appears to be endemic. Read the comments on the last women's match. I think the system we play throughout the group relies on a high level of chance conversion which just isn't there but seems to be there in most of the best teams. It certainly doesn't rely on solid defence.

    I'm starting to think that the stated "City way or City style" is counterproductive. To try and play a particular way across the group is noble, but when that style is supposed to be beautiful and effective it makes the oppositions job alot easier. Everyone knows exactly how we are going to try and play and can set up to counter that. Now this is based nearly soley on my experiences in Melbourne over the previous 2 seasons both Men Womens and Youth plus the occasional games I've watched of Manchester and New York respectively.
    I think the group needs to adopt a bit more pragmatic stance and play each game on its merits and drop this whole style ethos. Teams just simply park the bus and hit us on the break week in week out.

    Obviously each team is different and so to are the Leagues but the end results and the basic causes of losses or draws are frighteningly similar.
