he didnt look up for it last night (IMHO) but maybe this is the kind of game to get him going again!?

In what way did he look "Not up for it" ?
just in the way that he wasnt overlapping as he was last year. I had a look at his 'heat-map' to confirm this and hes much closer to the half-way line than in some of the games from last year. Might be tactics but against a team with 10 men behind the ball id expect him to be further forward.

On at least half a dozen times, he got into very good position on the left and the ball wasn't played to him. I saw a couple of times he was very frustrated with that.

Bollocks to so this PR/ Media bullshit. So clearly tossed this by the PR dept to counterbalance the previous fuck up ...

Idgaf just play.

It’s the Club making a positive sound for the benefit of the fans by way of a players mouth. The player who needed a PR rub this month is Rose. Bleurgh

Hope Kompany is out. Nothing to lose so we might as well have a go at them. A point would be a good result though.

Maybe not playing 3 CBs, meant he could not overlap as much. But i agree, he is nowhere on the form he was last season, to be expected though.

Even though last night was pretty much lacklustre all over the pitch, including Rose, I'd probably pick him for the weekend. Walker and Sterling are going to thrive down the right unless someone makes them think about the danger in behind them. Davies has come on a bundle, but I think Rose and Son are the ones to take the game to City on that side.

We are capable of getting a result but will have to be at the top of our game. Should be an open game....3-3.

He looks overweight and a way off full match fitness. Which is to be expected. He was an absolute machine before, ripped as fuck

I wish players wouldn't say stuff like this in the press Son came out and said similar as well, look what happened before the NLD all talk and then didn't show on the day.
I believe city are certainly beatable and we are capable of doing that but keep it amongst themselves and go out a do the business.

I think they are all really up for it, hence the slow pace of the Brighton game.
I remember the snipey comments befor Real. A draw was the pinnacle of hope. We are capable of beating that lot.

Exactly
We could easily get our noses rubbed in it tomorrow- a quiet positive approach please-then we'll see
