@ West Ham
« on: May 15, 2022, 13:13:54 »
XI | Ederson, Cancelo, Fernandinho (C), Laporte, Zinchenko, Rodrigo, De Bruyne, Bernardo, Mahrez, Jesus, Grealish

SUBS | Steffen, Ake, Sterling, Gundogan, Foden, Egan-Riley, Mbete, Palmer, Lavia

No Foden. Very pleased to see Laporte in the side. Come on you blues.

Like to make things difficult for ourselves don’t we.

Worse defensive performance of the season. Painful to watch and not sharp enough going forward.

Tough half. We've not done well but should have had a penalty. VAR bottled it. It'd be a very good game to win from here but we can do it. Draw would do nicely.

We need to look after that goal difference now and do conceding. Aston Villa will not be easy and Liverpool could have a field against Wolves & Southampton. They certainly have the incentive now.

Our defence looks well being wobbly, Zinchenko being exposed. I fear Aston Villa will exploit both these weaknesses in our last game.

C’mon City score a winning goal now.

What a golden opportunity wasted by Mahrez.

When he missed that penalty at the scousers why would he take another in a high pressure match? :(

I would have taken a draw at half time but missing that penalty is a sickner. Still in our hands though. Going to be another nerve shredder of a final match.

Mahrez cannot perform under pressure and he's proved that God knows how many times now. The performance all round was shite and we're lucky to have the draw. I don't get why they hold on the ball for so long at the death on the edge of the box. Just fuckin cross it in!

Stevie G will be fuckin well up for it next week.

Mahrez has been decent at penalties for us this season. At least he got it on target. But even so, that was a big one not to score.

Decent effort from the lads to come back from two down at half time. Though some of the poor passing out from the back was making me very nervous at times.

We should be able to beat Villa at home.

Even allowing for two central defenders being out and Walker too, our defending was panicky and pathetic at times. A big problem worry against AV and Ollie Watkins, Ings & Coutinho.

This damn cartoon team. Setting it up so Gerrard can get his revenge. You couldn't even make this shit up. City deserves nothing this season. Typical City lives. And I suppose nobody really wants it any other way  :D

A bit dramatic to say the least. We could get 91 points and lose the PL by a point. But we deserve nothing???

Perhaps. But think of all the matchballs, it's a joke, and even worse when Gerrard is perfectly setup to fuck up in the last game. It aligns, and it's laughable.

I still find myself muttering 'Fucking Mahrez' on a regular basis.

Could and should have been such a an enjoyable week. Instead stress and worry. Thing is he seems to have just one penalty so not too hard to guess for the goalkeeper, dive left and high.
