    We need to respond to this dreadful display with a top class performance at the weekend, or heads should roll.

    Where is Vinnie when you need him?

    They will all turn up for training today as if nothing happened.

    Pep should send them outside into the elements and leave them there all day.

    Taking it one game at a time
    That is hugely frustrating. Last night Newcastle's (I think) first chance ends up in our net after what was presumably a mishit. Of course, there were various errors on City's part e.g. playing him onside. We can, imo, be a bit unlucky but they need to make less crucial errors at the back; just as they need to be more clinical at the other end e.g. David Silva should have scored at least one goal.

    That result hurt me last night. I took it too personally.
    I won’t watch the match tonight as I fear I could end up in the loony bin watching teethy mcgnasher wanking a water bottle off if they score.

    Yes the game was slow and ponderous from the start but the manager should have changed that. No excuses

    I think Pep had to take De Bruyne off but in hindsight the timing was wrong. Their crowd was suddenly up for it and our players sank. After he went off no one got control of the game. Not Silva, not Bernardo and not Fernandinho. A midfield three that good cannot all play so poorly.

    We should have been 2 up and De Bruyne not booked. Instead that mistake is the catalyst for the loss. But we still should have scored another. I don't know why we keep throwing games away when winning. A lack of killer instinct, complacency...something isn't right.

    We will not catch Liverpool now. Three tough games coming up, even if we win all three the gap is 4pts and they have a game in hand. The pressure is off them. Their game tonight is suddenly a lot easier and they can play more relaxed and open the 7pt lead again. Our chance to put real pressure on them over the next couple of weeks has gone.

    Of course we will keep pushing but personally we need to now prioritise the CL and FA Cup. We have the chance to go all out for the CL this season. Top4 is a cert so lets rotate for the league. Blood Foden and Garcia some more and be fresh and ready to push on in the CL.
