I saw these stats earlier, sorry if it's already been done:

Last 3 matches between City and Spurs:

City: 71 shots, 21 on target, 2 goals

Spurs: 9 shots, 7 on target, 6 goals
You just have to laugh.

Oh is this the bit where you pretend no one wants Pep out and it's just people being mean about doubters?

Read the Pep performance thread, the post-match thread, there are plenty of people who have explicitly said they want Pep out, he shouldn't have been given an extension and he's "yesterday's man", "done at the top level" and "has been found out" (actual quotes).

Lots of posters are venting, not surprisingly when Pep explicitly said he would only extend if he deserved it and then kills optimism with another shit show straight afterwards.

In most instances (with exceptions) that’s NOT the same as saying Pep out now. No more than lambasting the team in a post-match thread amounts to ordering a rag or dipper kit for Xmas. It’s saying people are frustrated and exasperated, that we are underachieving, that Pep’s currently floundering for answers and, yes, there are genuine doubts that his City career may have peaked. No doubt there’s also an element of backlash on a few sanctimonious individuals who have preached Pepal infallibility and others who think we should be grateful for anything that doesn’t look and smell like a turd.

Surely you can see this even though, as a loyalist, you currently feel hurt?

If you polled how many would terminate Pep’s contract right now, there would be a small number. If you asked whether the jury’s out, the number would be larger. That’s why I asked you and @Akpowell what your poll questions would be. Neither of you answered.

Most of us will carry on as City fans do: watch how things work out and alternate between elation and annoyance, optimism and pessimism.

I'm talking about people who are explicitly saying they want Pep out, or he's done and we need to move on, or that we made a massive mistake extending his contract.

I explained that pretty thoroughly, but you still think I'm complaining about normal criticism or venting because you're trying to pretend there isn't a group of users who actually want Pep out.

So your poll questions are....?

Ha. Pep out when? Now? End of season regardless? Review at end of season? You’ve not even thought it through.

Why the fuck would a definitive, make-a-judgement-now vote have an option for reviewing at the end of the season?

It's already implied from "Keep Pep beyond this season" that Pep Out means either now or at the end of the season or anywhere in between.

The point, as was stated in the original post you abusively replied to, was to get people calling for Pep Out, saying he was done, saying the club fucked up by renewing on record, so they had to stand by their opinion and not just melt away and pretend they never doubted him like we saw in 2017.

Bluster all you like. He‘s just signed an extension and is going nowhere immediately, whether he polls zero or 100%.

There are few on here who wouldn’t give him until the end of the season at the very least. I’ll tell you that without a poll. And, if I was remotely bothered, I could even look through the threads and give you their names.

Put your shovel down and move on.
