As good as 3 points is, performance to me is more important than the result. 
 

We need to see some signs of progression and a tactical aptitude from Lampard. 

Problem is we step forwards..then take giant leaps back. If we win this it needs to be the start of a decent run. Not a blip in our poor one

Jesus fucking christ, I still see some fans wanting to give Lampard time, showing City and Pep as an example of working together for years and working on the system and their play...

We go a goal down and fall apart. No urgency to get back into it. They scored within 2 minutes..so bad

Well tbf...despite how horrible his team is now and everything gone to shit, he still deserves credit for securing CL for another year in a season when lot of people wrote us off, after Hazard's depar

BT just roasting us

saying that we where the perfect team for Arsenal to launch a drive for the top 4 off off

we were a team starting to freefall and thus Arse could pound us and gain more confidence

The thought of Sterling sprinting at Azpi and De Bruyne playing easy diagonals between Zouma and Azpi is comforting before bed tonight. 😬😬😬

Really, the only positives I can think of are that City have been super inconsistent this season as well. And they may be missing some key players due to COVID. But who am I kidding, whenever opponents are missing key players they've still battered us in recent weeks.

Am probably gonna end up jinxing it this fucking time but christ, do people not get tired about saying that about Azpi all the time? Every time, there's 'Azpi will struggle against X, Y, Z' bla bla bla but every time, he dealt with whatever threat well enough that there's no problem from his side. :doh:

We lost against an Arsenal C team, don't see how them being 3 starters out changes much. Won't get too many chances IMO and when we do it'll end up with a pass to the full backs for a cross and pray

except this season he has been burnt for pace more than usual, and its only natural

he is rapidly ageing out and has played INSANE minutes each season for well over a decade now

also, Sterling is a fair example, as he is one of the fastest players in Europe 

I am not saying it will happen for sure, but its harsh to bash someone simply for broaching the subject

All our rivals teams have produced a perfect result to start of their year! I am preparing to be disappointed and see more melt down and more knee jerk reactions about sacking Lampard, selling Kai, Werner turning flop ...etc.

Does anyone really expect anything from this game? 

Remember how we were excited for this season and new players? If somebody told me that Chelsea with Pulisic, Werner, Ziyech and Havartz would be unwatchable I wouldn't believe it.

Would be surprised if we get anything from this game, Frank has sucked dry all enthusiasm in last few weeks, highly doubt anyone is hyped to watch us play.

And “managers” do everything necessary to fully utilise their strongest assets. All we’ve seen is square pegs/round holes and you expect us to be contempt with such clueless tactics? Here’s an idea, if it’s not working, change it. God forbid we see Werner on the wing and our most expensive signing ever not utilized at all. 

I hope Lamp 'll change his system, i don't believe in yours but if he decided to play as you 'd like and we loose because Werner and Havertz are still shit, at least it would put an end to this wrong diagnosis. Their positions on a game sheet is not the reason why they struggle.  Regardind Lamp, i can't disagree with you, he's an emblematic character but a poor manager.

Against who exactly? And no, one or two moments doesn't/don't count.

I'm going to miss this due to an under 15's match and to be honest I can't actually say I am that bothered.

I can't see anyway we can win this game what so ever.

Yeeee you won't miss much lol. If you've seen our last few games..you know what to expect

I do, and I actually think I'm dodging a bullet here.

I hope Lampard can finally beat a team in the top 10. This idea of only beating teams we are by far better than (quality wise) in the bottom half of the table is not sustainable.

A positive result is far more important than a good, strong performance today. We need to keep picking up points and stay within the pack.

We've shown against the likes of Man Utd, Spurs and Sevilla that we can sit in deep and defend properly. Unlike those teams though, City will play a more open, expansive game and there will be spaces to exploit on the counter. 

I think this is the game to play Werner as a centre forward, flanked by Pulisic and either CHO or Ziyech depending on his fitness.

It might not be pretty but if we do it right this City team can be 'got at' and we do have attacking players and pace that can hurt them.
