    Miami weather/lifestyle is more suitable for what is effectively his retirement. Enjoy it David, you’ve earned it.

    It is horrible to watch a player live that's on the decline,we all knew the day would come,and had to witness it already with a few who have now gone,but theses next 5 months can't come quick enough for both himself and the fans,fucking horrible as I say to see,but you know when you know.

    We didn't need a high press yesterday. We had 72% possession. We didn't draw the game because of a failure on any player's part to press the ball. We had the ball!

    Some of you do not understand the game.

    We didn't create enough clear cut chances against a team that defended deep with a narrow 2 banks of 4 making City go wide.

    Sorry but you couldn’t be more wrong. We need a high press every game without fail. The high press enables us to create better chances, it allows us to choke teams and prevent them countering. It directly improves both our attack and our defence.

    As you said, some people just don’t understand the game.

    Put it another way then...the press was good enough yesterday because we had 72% of the time. Their keeper must have had 10% of their 28%! It was what we did or didn't do with that 72% that was the problem.

    Palace were encamped in their half bar 5 or 6? breaks over 90 plus minutes of a football match.

    Yep - although 4 shots on target out of 24 attempts is perhaps where the problem lies.

    A press is never good enough. Most goals come from turnovers in play regardless of possesion stats.

    When the other team have little of the ball you don't get turnovers.
