    Guardiola asked some of the players to do the 90 minutes. Bit leggy towards the end.

    How many millimetres was Van Dijk’s crossbar effort from crossing the line?

    I agree, but the poster asked why he came in for criticism. That first season, he was bloody awful.
    He's looking more like the player we thought we'd signed.

    I'm lost too mate. To me, it looked like we were still going out to play as we normally do, but we ran out of puff & the Dippers finally woke up.

    That's why I said in the second half we needed to become more compact, & control the game defensively until we got our second wind. We always seem to look very shaky when trying to see a game out against better opposition.

    I played at a lowly level, but I always remember our manager making two chopping motions with his hands which meant get back into your starting line up shape (442) & don't stray out of it until told otherwise. Being compact when needed is our next level of development.

    That's why I used the analogy of a boxer covering up until his head had cleared after being tagged.

    Just watched it back. We should have capitalised so much more on our first half performance. Second half we looked a bit knackered. What a great win when not at our best. They were so desperate to beat us. Maybe it'll be their year again later in the season...then again...maybe not. Lol.

    We've just won 5 domestic trophies out of a possible 5...remember someone once saying...not in my lifetime...Haha.

    You’ve misspelt ‘end’ in your username.

    Should have been 3-0 up 20 mins into the 2nd half. We faded badly. Pep once more showed his one and only weakness in his subs. Foden should have been on for the last 15 mins.
    More work needed on team fitness I think.
