lol, so much negativity relax

this alone is one of the stupidest comments I have seen since the season started

Another player to dribble in transition and offer zero end product.    We already have two of those.

The absolute ease with which they won the ball off our entire team was insane for a club at our level. It seriously looked like a senior team against a youth team. They looked like a bunch of grown men saying to little kids “I’ll take that ball, please.” And they got it every time.

The biggest difference between us and City (and Liverpool it must be said) is that every player 1-11 in those two sides are extremely comfortable on the ball under pressure. We have way too many who aren’t so we struggle against the press even when we play poor teams.

If you play Werner and Lukaku uptop together you need a CAM and two decent wingback who can cross with lots of energy. 

Azpi and Alonso.

Fucking joke.

The reason why we went for Hakimi and bought Chilwell.

3 men in MF helps congest it in there but also gives us less threat going forward.

Either way though, still 0-0, haven’t looked great but City have hardly had any clear chances. Could be worse. 

Tuchel will not be completely happy though and will expect better second half.

Every time we play City though and the games go like this - us being deeper, getting penned in - everyone always fawns over how they play with the ball and how they press, end of the day means fuck all if they don’t score though.  CL final was the same, as was the game where Alonso scored. People Moaned and moaned, look at what happened.

Alonso is totally out of his depth in a match like this where we don’t have the ball at all. He’s only effective when we’re on the front foot and don’t have to worry as much about the defensive side of things. When he’s completely pinned back like this he’s useless.

Pep knew exactly what to do here. Which is what we’ve tried to do to Liverpool recently. Force the wing backs deep into their own half and totally negate them.

I'd be fine staying as we are, compact and defensive, 0-0 or 1-0 win suits me just fine, commentators can spunk over City all they want, these games do not decide titles, simple as that.

That said, Lukaku is uber frustrated and rightly so, we do not release the ball quick enough at all.

we need to play balls over the top more

their their 2 CB's are there for the taking

they have very little support due to the Citeh fullbacks basically playing as wingers as they are so far forward
