Manchester City (Away) Saturday October 15

Recommended Posts

Sounds about right. But, should we piece things together here and there, they look like they'll be vulnerable at the back.

 

Man, not to hate on Oviedo, but I really think that should've been a penalty

clear dive for me because of how he exaggerated the slightest of contact

He exaggerated, yeah, but the contact was there. I think it's a good no-decision. Really could've been read either way. Best to just let them play, I feel

thats the point, he "simulated". Doesn't seem to matter, seems like it's only a matter of time until we concede

How about moving Gueye to LB or bringing in Funes Mori for Oviedo? They're playing so high they're negating our attacking full backs. I'd rather be solid and strong defensively right now and hope our forward players can piece something together.

Koeman has said go out there are let them play and sit back.

 

That's fucking mental if there is one team in the league you can't let play it's city.

Koeman needs his head checking then, we need to be pushing! This is embarrassing

Yeah, yeah, I know. But, we've got to do something. For now, I'm happy he's moved Bolasie to the left. I think he offers a little more in support for his FB.

they just need to have a higher line, that's it. Rom is fucking lost here, might as well take him off because he's not going to see the ball at this rate

Should have started with 5 at the back with oviedo's quality of defending. He needs that cover from Funes Mori.

id put Mori on for TC and let Oviedo push more, 3 at the back might give us more opportunity to push them back

This is atrocious...we look like a league 2 side

I don't think we are playing poorly at all. I just don't think we were tactically ready for this crazy fucking formation they put out today.

 

This is a shit penalty to give away. Stupid from Jags.

 

STEKKERS!!!!

We were less of a shambles after we stuck an extra man in the middle. Can see bringing Ross on for Del to allow Bolasie and Rom the freedom up top. We just don't have enough possession to do anything and Del is worst culprit

We were hopelessly outclassed in that half. I'm not sure if our strategy was to bunker and counter or if Man City is so good in possession that they forced in on us. I suspect the latter. I did notice that at about the 20 minute mark Gueye came to help Oviedo on the wing and that helped some. But all things considered, we are incredibly lucky to be level at half.

I think on the whole we haven't played bad... Although we have let them through *Oviedo* cough... plenty of solid defending, need some sort of countermeasures to this formation City are playing though! COYB!

Very pleased to go in level. Sometimes you just have to hold up your hands and say the opposition is too good, lucky we have a chance to change things at halftime.

Man City looks so fast and so well organized it's ridiculous. We're just not linking up quickly enough or finding open space enough to get anything going whatsoever against them. Don't think I've ever seen a defense organized so well.

Men against Boys. Oasis vs Honey G.

 

Fucking shambles but some how it's still nil nil.

 

Mori on at LB- plays there for country.

 

Gerry off maybe.

 

2nd half can't be as bad............can it?

It can be worse if they score.

I think taking off a winger (Gerry) for Barkley would be good. We looked better once we sucked the wingers inside into midfield. I'd also replace Oviedo with someone who can defend, because I don't see our back four crossing midfield too often today.

Oviedo...always liked him...never realised how out of his depth he is

Have to hold my hand up and admit I've thought Oviedo a decent player, occasional starter, though better at LW than LB.

 

But today, he's totally outclassed, in talent, energy, know-how. Most irritating is the he's been moved off the ball by a player whose strength is not his strength.

 

We've had 3 good counter-attack opportunities, but in each case stymied by our own awful passing. Just basic passing, poor.

 

Deulofeu offside when looking straight across the line at defenders. Pathetic.

For as bottling in as we are they really haven't threatened at all. Oviedo off immediately for Mori, Mirallas on for Gerry. Have a go

honestly, I'd rather give Oviedo support than just swap him out, because Mori will just suffer the same fate.

 

TC for Mori, 5 at the back allowing Coleman and Oviedo to press a bit more. Mirallas is a good shout.

We don't press, at all. Whenever we get the ball we're absolutely shite with it. Apart from the giving the penalty away the defence has looked good.

 

Load of crap really. If we don't lose today it'll be a miracle.

If you don't press in modern football you might as well go back to WM. Mind you, Guardiola will probably bring that back.at some point
