I’m not patronising, merely pointing out some people can’t wait to have a moan. We see it in all walks of life, not just football, but moaning City fans should conduct an head wobbling exercise, a few years ago City in the CL? We need to take defeat with humility and understand for whatever reason sometimes we get beaten amd outplayed by a better team on the night.It's only normal on a fans forum that fans ask questions after such an unexpected terrible performance. A routine win v Fulham demands less analysis. To say the moaners are out in force is patronising when most are merely trying to fathom out whst went wrong becsuse something obviously wasnt right last night. The crowd, the lack of team understanding, jaded players, lack of spark...all needs looking at. In context though. The season is only just beginning so noone is panicking just yet. We can't ignore critical issues such as central midfield being a problem area though - and has been all through our CL years - along with left back. Areas of the pitch which keep on holding us back in this comp. Roll on Cardiff, nothing like the next game to get the positivity back.
Why persist with Gundogan, a bad buy who is not improving, also Jesus is not as good as all the hype suggests. Plus Fernandinho had his worst game ever and looked very unfit. Worst team performance I've seen for a long time.Disgracefully sloppy in that first half and it cost us.
Sane changed the game when he come on, easily our best player.
The system should have been kept the same as the weekend, we look miles better with 2 proper wingers.
Noticed this myself. I’m screaming at the TV for players to turn after they receive the ball, a few times they had acres of space but there was no communication (which in itself is a worry) and then passed backwards. Even David Silva and Delph went for the same header without anyone shouting. I give them the benefit of the doubt after 1 loss but the spark needs to be rediscovered fast!Bloody awful last night. One thing that struck me was our players seemed to be facing the wrong way a lot of the time. Instead of picking up passes on the run, players wee getting it to feet but with their backs to goal or other team mates. No fluidity and stop start all the time.
Gotta give credit to their midfielders who put in a great collective performance.
