Lets not get too cocky. Lose against spurs City could be like 4 points behind or Liverpool 3.

Remember that today they play eachother.

Hope Conte has something to say and work on in terms of our defensive concentration and organisation. Aollwing 2 goals at home to a shit team like Stoke is not good enough,

 

 

We just couldn't handle Crouch today. Not every team has Crouch :) Don't forget that we conceded only 4 goals in 13 games now...

That's no excuse, is it? Crouch is 35 for goodness sake(!) and the way we dealt with him today was atrocious. Why was Alonso marking him for Stoke's first goal? Why didn't we deal with the ball properly for their second? We had so many players back and we couldn't deal with Crouch, Bojan and Diouf. We only conceded 2 goals in the 12 games before today (mind you that 2 goals - one was from distance, the other an own goal) because we defended properly and barely gave any clear cut chances away. And of all the things to struggle to deal with, we struggled with the route one play.

say thanks to marotta (juventus's manager)

If I remember correctly he left because the Juventus board did not want to spend and get the target he wanted. 

I wonder if we will have the same problem here. We will only know if comes next summer we are not getting non of our targets and waiting for the last minute to get deals done. 

We shall see.

Its like people look at stats and don't bother watching the game... Crouch is 6'6" Azpi is 5'10" it was clear that the game plan for Stoke was to expose the mismatch on our right side. They were winning everything in the air and made it hard to get out. We tried to smother them and get to the second ball but the ball doesn't always bounce your way. 

Their 1st goal was offside too.

I'd love to hear how you would've dealt with it.

Believe I've mentioned the examples and implied the responses in that same post.

No actually you didn't... How would you have dealt with 35yr old Crouch?

Really? You have to ask how we would have stopped Crouch for the equalizer (why was Alonso with him?) and the second goal (3-4 players battling with Crouch and not one managed to win the duel, even from the second ball?)? If you thought the defending was fine, then I've got no words.

first of all we were marking zonally and Cahill was the one who got beat. Secondly Alonso is 6'2" and good in the air. On the second goal Kante missed the chance to clear, it happens, nothing to pull a hissy fit about.

Who's pulling a hissy fit? Only stated the flaws in our performances today (pretty sure Conte won't be happy with that either) because on another day, giving away soft goals like that could have cost us points (remember Swansea this season?). Alonso may be 6'2" but he's not exactly a physical defender, is he? And zonal marking or not, the defender for both goals and in some other instances were certainly quite messy to say the least.
