It's was ridiculous how easily City passed through us to the wings and managed to get to our fullbacks.
Yeah I didnt like it and I think it boils down to Poch not knowing his best midfield balance. Once that's corrected we should be stronger. I think Sissoko and Ndombele aren't 100% sure on their responsibilities so are some times not tracking back expecting the other to do so. Need to build up understanding

Just wonder how big a result this could go onto be at a later date we it's put into context.

We were dreadful and very lucky. Good result, of course. But I don’t think there was much fight or passion. We were shocking.
Not much fight or passion?

I disagree.

Maybe you're right but I'd like you to go up to Poch or any of the players and suggest that to their face?

Fucking hell...

We didn’t play badly. They played well. They’re the best side on the planet, but they couldn’t finish today and we defended with great intensity, finished with precision, found some mental strength and nicked a point.

We rode the run of the ball, unquestionably, but you have to be tough to keep that lot from scoring 4-5.

Delighted with a point but that may be genuinely the worst performance from us in a long time, perhaps even in Pochs tenure.

Having said that when City are good they are ducking good. A pleasure to watch at times

A lot of work to do. Worrying that I thought we looked a bit unfit.
Worrying how so many players seemed to have no clue what they were doing. So little protection of the fullbacks
I do genuinely worry about Poch's tactics

A draw away at Etihad is a massive result. Simple as that.

People can jizz themselves to death at praising how amazing City are. If you don't put your chances away it doesn't matter.

This team under Poch has, year after year, shown they NEVER give up. They have given us so many anti-spursy last gasp winning moments under incredible pressure.

Yet we have "fans" actively saying we "deserve" to lose to last minute goals.

Incredible. Just such a slap in the face to our players, manager and the club.

Have a fucking word with yourselves. You know who you are.

Good result. We will get better. Not sure they will (not that they need too)
Agree but it would be nice if they started with the same tenacity

Got out of jail. Not a fun watch. We didnt play any football all game. 90 minutes watching a clueless back 4 pass it square till they get pressed before chipping up to half way to nobody in particular. The players cant be that stupid, no way we win a trophy this year if this is going to be our tactics in the big games. Totally outclassed.

We seem off the pace but hopefully that improves obviously as we play more games. Coys big win next week and it will be a decent start to season without playing well.

Look forward to getting Son and Dele back. The last two games have shown the quality these two bring that gives us so many more options. With others coming back from long injuries and new players settling in we will be much better after the international break

Hahahaha! They had thirty attempts and scored 2. We had three and scored two! Our accuracy is deadly!
