Ederson’s distribution is absurd
L. O. L. They beat City the first time by being aggressive and taking shots. The put three past LFC at Anfield by forcing errors and taking advantage of dangerous set pieces.
City eats teams with the strategy that you are suggesting alive, and have been for years. This was never going to be a 0 0 with Palace playing their 3rd and 4th choice CB so it doesn't make sense why they set up that way at home, unless they were going for damage limitation.
Why is it so hard for people to admit City wins games before kickoff?
What part of it is wrong? In fact this is a game that proves my point
At least the end of the game might be interesting.
Man City fans are crisis actors
The part where you think teams lie down vs City. And the part where you think you’ve Pep figured out and every manager in the world hasn’t yet.
Oh my god who was that on Palace who tried that nutmeg
I think Crystal Palace was too scared to tie that match so they let the 3rd goal in.
Lol of course Jesus is offside.
Dumbest player I’ve ever seen
1. Teams do lie down versus City. This isn't even a debatable point. Its fact.
2. I never said Pep has figured it out and every other manager has it. I said Pep knows how to attack teams that play for 0 0, which is also not a debatable point. Peps eyes light up when he sees teams on that set up city is built to demolish those teams. The proof is in the 100 point season last year, and another likely top 3 PL all time points total this season
Well it's understandable that he'd be not quite himself at this time of the year.
They are infuriatingly clinical
Because it's bull****? I mean, fine, if you want to say that, then so do all of the big teams.
City also eats teams alive that try to play against them. Trust me, they've done it to Arsenal.
Except it's not. No one else is dropping 95+ point seasons consistently.
Yes it's been established that City is good, but to beat them, you need to score, unless the rules have changed recently. Playing an out of form target man who hasn't started in months over your second best offensive player, is generally not a good way to score
The issue is not saying “city are good and sometimes (often?) teams make bad decisions on how to play them” the issue is treating it like it’s some kind of conspiracy by the lower clubs to hand city games.
Please not this ****ing team again.
Lose the league to literally anybody else.
Sure beats the **** out of the National Anthem
That's not my intention at all. My point is a lot of teams play for 0 0 against City; which is exactly what City wants them to do. Its not a conspiracy but you would think eventually someone besides Rafa would think maybe pressing them would be a good choice. What was that Einstein said about insanity?
Lee Dixon and Arlo White: April 2014
Lol get up
That's one of those that's a foul anywhere else on the pitch but that one's in the box so the rules change.
RLC adds such a dimension to this team
That's level with Robertson
"Azpilicueta the only Chelsea player left over from that 2014 match."
Did Hazard and Willian die?
