The frustration today was seeing us so bad against a City team that don't look very dangerous.  None of their players unduly worried me, had we played with less nightmare mistakes and more confidence then we could and should have smashed four against them.  The mis-match with Foden and Milner just made them look overall superior because it happened so often.  

City are a mile off what they once were.  

I thought Silva was outstanding and he hurt us a lot. Outstanding player. Foden is a prick, totally macunian, screaming at the ref all game.

Our subs made no difference to us again.
 

Why the fuck did we keep some of these duds when it was clear Klopp didn’t trust them last year.


They should have been punted as soon as last season ended and replaced with players who’d make a difference.

 

Give Mo the half a mill a week he wants and put a big looming problem to bed.

It was criminal of Henderson to let Silva get away from him for that run.  

Henderson was abysmal, as was Jones, so any praise for Man City has to be tempered against the fact we had no midfield to speak of, and a decent City team scores more than two.

The transfer management past three years has been a fucking disgrace

Should have won that game, no excuses. Twice we had the lead and just like at brentford, we let it slip.

 

Said to my mates at the ground before kick off, I fancied us to win 3-2. So close and if Fabinho had been switched on at the far post for the 2nd week going, we would have. Might seem harsh on him but he took an age to react to that loose ball on the edge of the 6 yard box at 2-2.

 

I got in the ground ok this time. There was a small queue to get in turnstile K but there seemed a long snaking queue to get in the Annie Road where a couple of my mates are.

 

Inside, the lads who sit next to me said one of them had taken a screen shot of their bar code, shoved their phone in the reader with NFC off and got in ok. Seems that's how the touts are getting round this thing. Certainly the turnstile reader acted very quickly compared to previous home games so may be they turned up the power as well?

 

A nice tribute to Sir Roger by everyone in the ground as well.

 

Overall, I thought the first half was a very cagey affair with neither team throwing caution to the wind and seemingly feeling each other out. city did seem to enjoy a bit more possession and threat in the last 15 minutes of the half. Ive seen some reports suggest they dominated the first 45 minutes. Have to disagree with that.

 

Sadio and Jota were both disappointing and I thought if that continued into the 2nd half, one or both may be hooked. But, the 2nd half was completely different to the first. We looked far more dangerous and maybe both Sadio and Jota had been told by Jurgen to get in the game as they seemed more lively.

 

Jota had a good opportunity on the edge of the box but either indecision or wanting too much time saw the chance snuffed out. 5 minutes later when a 2nd chance came, he didnt waste it and cracked off a shot quickly that Ederson smothered.

 

We were then treated to a moment of brilliance when a break down the right saw Mo play a fantastic ball into sadio's path who promptly poked the ball past the advancing Ederson. A great ball by Mo and a great finish by Sadio.

 

But the lead didnt last long which is majorly disappointing. I didnt have that good a view as the goal was down the Kop end. It seemed like a bit of play around the edge of our box fell to Foden who shot at goal. It looked to have Alli beat but I dont know if it was going in. It seemed like the ball cannoned off Jones who couldnt do anything to stop it ending in the net. Reports seem to say the goal was directly from Foden's strike but all around me thought it was an oggie or took a big deflection.

 

The disappointment of conceeding that goal didnt last too long as another great piece of play down the right gave Mo the chance to skip inside the city defence and hit a beautiful goal across Ederson and just inside the far post. What a hit that was.

 

I dont often subscribe to this view but, FSG, just give Mo what he wants. Dont piss about arguing the tosh whether the boy is worth it. He is, no doubt. We dont have any other players in our team, good as they are, who can really command the wedge Mo deserves. There's probably only van Dijk and even then, Id say he isnt even close to Mo. Make it so. If Mo leaves or is allowed to leave, it will be a tragedy.

 

We should really have held out for the win. Two seasons ago, Im convinced we would have. But we seem to be shipping needless goals. No one convinces me Havertz's goal wasnt preventable. All 3 of Brentford's goals, the same.

 

Mo lost the ball down near me but city were still 70 yards from our goal. Henderson misses a challenge to clear on the half way line. Still city come forward. In the middle of the pitch, it seemed Fabinho had a chance to intercept the ball but somehow the ball escaped him. Even then when De Bruyne had a shot it seemed to ricochet off someone and ended up in the net.

 

I keep saying this but it seems to me no one in our team knows how to block tackle. It seems to me we lose a high percentage of 50 / 50 tackles and today's game seemed no different. Time after time 1 or 2 of our players surrounded the city player with the ball yet somehow, the city player seemed to retain possession and skipped clear.

 

The big talking point in the game was whether Milner should have got a 2nd yellow. Im not sure what the incident was but did notice Guardiola going ballistic and making a kicking movement.

 

It also seems some dirty twat decided to take a gob at one of the city backroom staff. Seriously, where do these knuckle heads come from? Stop bringing the club down to your level.

 

MoTM has to be Mo who, although he has a relatively quiet game, had two pieces of sublime skill that should have won us 3 points.

Oh, and Jordan Henderson has been fucking awful all season. One lucky footballer him getting that armband when he did and being surrounded by injury prone shite. 
 

Has he had a concussion and has come back thinking he’s Steven Gerrard?
 

Another one who should be looking over his shoulder next summer.

I should have said that.

 

 

We’ve got lunatics who still think Firmino’s this game changer. He’s been shite since before kiev. Exactly the age when Brazilian forwards forget how to kick a ball. 

Gomez has always been terrible at right back. He still can’t read the flight of a ball once it goes higher than 6 foot. His positioning was awful again today.

Henderson shit out of the tackle so why would he even get a foul against him.

 

That ref hadn't given a red card in ages that's the only reason he didn't give one.  Silva could have had a second yellow some time after for a challenge and didn't either.

For their second goal, it was a throw in to them at their left full. 2 seconds later, it was in midfield with half our team ahead of the ball. Why the fuck were our front 3 pressing their defence on their throw in with 5 mins to go when we were a goal up? Let them throw it back and actually force them to do so and we defend the spaces. Also, Joe gomez tries to step up and play offside just as de bruyne played it over the top. What the actual fuck. Just drop in and defend in a line. The other back 3 were all 3 yards deeper anyway. That was a huge error. They oil cheating cunts did get lucky with the ball landing on de bruynes foot and even more so with the deflection. Frustrating and a fair result in equal measure.

Fuck knows what this place will be like when we actually lose. We weren't great, City are a good team (they'd only conceded one before today), but we still should have won had it not been for a brilliant clearance. Enjoy Salah's goal as the thing of beauty it was.

Doesn’t touch him. If anything he jumps out of the way to avoid him. Silva should have been booked for diving.

100%, lucky to be level at ht but much better 2nd half and if Fabinho had a left foot we would have won.

Jones could have killed that move early on instead he did fuck all and jumped out of the way instead of bringing down the man at one point.

Probably my only criticism of today- our tackling was flimsy to say the least. That moment where Silva kept the ball despite 5 players challenging him sums it up. No way do either of their goals happen if we were stronger in the challenge.

We need to really pull our finger out what is that 3 league games lost now, not good enough. We need players obviously we all agree FSG should have done more since we won the CL but some need to get a grip. 
FSG In/out support the fucking team.

    • If you obviously read this:  And here's the fact checking article : No evidence linking deaths among children to vaccine rollout   Why then did you think to post the original scaremongering bullshit?
    • Ok I never wanted to post this but seeing as so many of us are arguing with each other, we're now on the subject of vaccination deaths, and over the last few months things have escalated to people being fine with mandatory vaccines I'm going to.   I would never have posted this before for two reasons : I didn't want to cause fear about vaccines if the data was off, and I didn't have access to the underlying data. And I still don't, but recently a fact checking site which I'm going to assume some of you would consider reliable has confirmed the figures, even though it's been clear to point out that the cause of these deaths isn't clear.   So this fact checking site also provides balance for those of you that think I'm fear mongering.   The subject is child deaths since the vaccine was rolled out. Here's the article that made me concerned a while back : Deaths among male Children are 83% higher than the 5-year-average since they were given the Covid-19 Vaccine   Now if you can simply look at the data there it points to something that should be a concern. If you read all the text it's clearly blaming the vaccines, but if you want you can simply ignore every bit of text and look at the data provided in the images.   And here's the fact checking article : No evidence linking deaths among children to vaccine rollout   Here's the two quotes confirming the data :       Why didn't I look at the data myself? Simply because when checking the ONS site and trying to access it I get asked to open an .xlsx file (Microsoft Excel) and I can't open it. I figured that if this was really a concern others would post this later on anyway and I'd see it again, which I have done several times since. I never had anyone else confirming the data though.   The last thing that still stopped me posting it was this thought : what about kids that died from covid last year?   Then I found this :     Child mortality in England during the COVID-19 pandemic   And there's also this from the ONS where we do actually have some numbers posted because it's a response to an FOI request : How many children died from long Covid-19 in the UK
    • The Ballon D’or is a glorified piss up for all the UEFA free loaders and cronies, so it’s hardly surprising the results are flawed, if you’re not in the click you don’t stand a chance and, to be fair, Messi and Ronaldo have been standout players over the last 10 years, so no wonder they just keep giving it to either of them. Easy option.
