He just ran the show against Germany midweek where they spanked them for 6.Panel have just hit the nail on the head regarding Rodri
He is a passenger and not what is needed for a position that is paramount for how we play both attacking and defending
Fernandinho's replacement he is not
Away from home we could maybe play a more balanced setup where Kyle is not playing right wing and Cancelo is not giving away possession cheaply in centre mid.I don't understand when people continue to say this. What do you want Pep to do, if a team sits back and puts 10 in their half, what is the alternative method of playing that you suggest to get passed that? Spurs were always going to play that way against us, and it really comes down to who scores first. Today they did, next time it'll be us and the result will be different.
I don’t want Mahrez in the team either but your logic is a bit weird. Mahrez also played outstanding for Algeria, so if you are picking your team based off of the international break, why ignore Mahrez’s performances, yet draw attention to Phil’s?Just gonna say the obvious.
Foden plays outstanding for England and Pep drops him for Mahrez.
Absolute shit decision by Pep.
We played the 2nd half like we were 2-0 up. I kept asking “do they know they’re losing?”Spot on. And people can (quite rightly say) its too early for that kind of talk but they clearly don't understand the psychological disadvantage we now face and if that becomes embedded too deeply it will have consequences for the Christmas/Jan period which we all know is the hardest. I'll concede to the lack of pre-season, the injuries, the threat we all face in the real world but its the lack of grit on the pitch that I just can't stomach. Ive seen enough losses in my many years but the ones where we went down with a fight have always been the ones that made me truly appreciate being a City fan. Tonight has been a world away from that feeling. Tomorrow I'll be right but to say that performance wasn't a concern would be negligence as a long suffering Blue.
He'll be too busy enjoying his (well deserved win) tonight to care. City, and the defence especially, fell right into the Mourinho trap...give a goal away and the trap closes shut.Has anyone told Maureen, Sir Rashford is playing tonight and as quickly got fit after dodging international duties?
