  1. Great win, deserved victory. Not to be carried away, it is still worth remembering that City played without their 2 stars - Aguero and De Bruyne. One huge plus for me is that Sarri is a quick learner. In this match I saw quick ball release, I saw a clear tactic of: get ball possession, bring it back to our third to shake off any harassment from City players, pass from side to side a few times to draw City in and dilute midfield, deliver accurate pass to flank and support attack with midfielders. Sarri very quickly realised that we allow them to crowd us when we pass short, and under pressure we either lose ball or make inaccurate pass. We needed to disarm City and make them run futile miles chasing the ball in attempt to harass us - and we did it superbly (City were knackered towards the end). We still lack speed, but with Sarri we move in the right direction. And lastly, it was great to see RLC getting minutes in this game. I wish Ampadu and Hudson-Odoi did as well.
  2. Giroud 32, Cesc 31, Pedro 31, Willian 30, Luiz 31, Cahill 32, Azpi 29, Alonso 28 No legs left in these fellas. Any youngster will outrun any of them all day long. Sarri system requires both physical and mental alertness, and half of our players are well past it, which was well on display in tonight's game.
  3. Hooray! We are back to 11 players on the pitch!
  4. Well, as Morata has scored, I can now relax and look forward to next season when he scores again.

    Would be great to see Bakayoko suddenly improving his game, admittedly with a few missing fingers.
  6. I suspect there are only a few players who still give a sh*t about what Conte says. Last year Conte got all his praises - and rightly so, but last summer and this season he lost his plot completely and managed to piss off too many people. You reap what you sow.
  7. I do not think this will happen purely due to financial considerations - pride is a very elusive and rare occurrence at our club these days.
  8. Yeah, and it only took him 54 minutes to figure out it wasn't the case. Sharp as a Gillette razor.
  9. We are extremely good at making sh*t teams look decent.
  10. In Willian's defense, he can clearly see that the team setup does not work, the genius strategy does not work, so he is taking it on himself to make something happen - which leads to errors.
  11. For some reason Morata reminds me of Torres in his last year with us. He runs as if he steps in treacle - weird gait, no bursting energy. And also as Torres he falls over so ever easily. I wish him well, but his demeanor tells me he does not want to be here.
  12. I agree - the ref is a prize dick, but it is our setup and the team selection to blame for pathetic 0:0 at HT.
  13. It really pisses me off when a ref decides to prove a pointless point by adding time well above what he himself awarded in the first place - oh, look at me, I am a ref, I am very important, and I do this just because I can. Where is professionalism in being a f**king dick?
  14. We are going to muck about with some insipid boring mindless ball-kicking, in the 74th minute we will concede a stupid self-made goal and then start running erratically in futile panic. I cant wait until the end of season and some serious changes made to the staff and the team.
