« on: September 14, 2019, 17:21:39 »
XI | Ederson, Walker, Stones, Otamendi, Zinchenko, Rodrigo, Gundogan, Silva (C), Bernardo, Sterling, Aguero

SUBS | Bravo, Cancelo, Fernandinho, Foden, Mahrez, De Bruyne, Jesus

No KDB but he's on the bench so hopefully no probs. On a hiding to nothing down there, everyone expecting us to win. I think we will too.

Good start. 2 nil down after 30 mins. Bloody awful defending.

Good goal from Sergio at the end of the first half to get us back into it but up to then a pretty rank display.

Need 2 goals now to in the second half.

Shocker but a crucial goal by Sergio. We can't waste much time before KDB is on second half. Jesus too - we need bodies in their box. It is a tight pitch and there's little space for our play so when the blocks do come lets have men there to profit from the loose balls.

Otamendi should be dropped for that. Give Garcia a go. KDB and Jesus coming on.

Idiotic decision from the club to spend 65 mil on a full back, not play him yet allow a huge gap in central defence to remain after the departure of Kompany. Stones and Otamendi have been awful today and we’ll win nowt with those too playing together.

Otamendi has shown he can do it over a Championship winning season but that was unforgivable sloppiness from him and just when we couldn't afford it. Think its the young lad, Garcia, that should fill the gap.

I agree Gavin we need to give Garcia his chance to shine.

shite team selection too.  Pep has to take responsibility for that.

I’d never play Rodri and Gundogan in the same midfield again. Shit at the back and bang average in midfield and upfront. Got what we deserved today.

Shit happens, I am sure the team will learn from this that complacency costs.

While Otamendi screwed up, we did a very bad job of covering his mistake. Defence poor all day, but so was the whole team to be fair.
