v Brugges CL
« on: November 03, 2021, 19:02:07 »
Ederson, Walker, Stones, Laporte, Cancelo, Rodrigo, Gundogan (C), Bernardo, Mahrez, Foden, Grealish

SUBS | Steffen, Carson, Dias, Ake, Sterling, Jesus, Zinchenko, De Bruyne, Fernandinho, Palmer

DeBruyne on bench, Mahrez playing? Dias rested, Laporte (accident in waiting) playing?

Grealish playing, Jesus not?

Ah well, C'mon City

Laporte has had a good season. Pep has faith and so do I! Interesting Dias left out though. Mahrez back is a surprise too.

We were playing well but now we are scrappy and careless, after their goal.

Not smooth patient possession play.

Yes, mixed half. Looked very good when we took the lead. Very unfortunate equaliser. The number of times we've had the ball in opposition boxes lately and not had the ball drop for us and we end up conceding one like that. I think we'll do it second half.

Having said that my heart sunk when I saw the ref in the tunnel and as usual he is giving us nothing. He could have a big say in this yet.

We are still a better team, but need to be more decisive with the final passes.

Grealish in particular wasteful in this respect. Mahrez just greedy and always wanting onto his left foot rather than play the pass.

Ye as said, Mahrez and Grealish need to offer more. There is so much space where the last man is so some runs down there would be handy!

Won by three but we are still misfiring on one piston.

Nice and easy second half. Lovely to see Raheem get one. We're going to need him or Mahrez or both to find form at some stage this season.

PSG drew in the end so City top the group.

Eagerness has shown some flickering flame recently let’s hope he catches fire
