City were due a win against us, but I never thought we would put 2 past them in the first 45minutes. As for the disallowed 3rd goal, Iím not sure the keeper had control of the ball and Edouard wasnít exactly lifting his leg to challenge the keeper.

It will be nice to play some lesser teams, because Arsenal, Liverpool and Man City in your first 4 games is pretty difficult.

If Mitchell hadnít been injured we might have won. That really disrupted us.

Yes. Thatís what happened. But Schlupp should have filled his position not Richards. Hughes for Schlupp. Every goal from 2-0 up was Richards playing too far back and allowing City to play into the strike zone. Except possibly Harlandís third. Also didnít help having slow and lesser skilled players like Ayew up forward as the ball kept returning to Mitchell to deal with and that overstretched him causing his breakdown and retirement. Great first half performance though. But it was always an unbalanced side with players like Ayew up forward. Olise and Mateta with Eduard up forward would have given City something to be more wary about, and from 2-0 we could have routed them as they were trying to chase the game. Tactical incompetence cost us 3 points. And as for all the hyper positive dudes and their silver linings, my prediction next week is that weíll be stung badly if we think itís an easy 3 pointer.

Its a free hit when you are away to City ,one we have taken more often than most . Almost did it again and but for a strange decision to chalk off the third would maybe have done it again . Dont know how that wasnt at least given the var treatment so we could all see why it was dissalowed ,but then maybe that was why it wasnt .

Still it was a fun day why it lasted and not many will beat the Champions elect ,or stop Halland .

Ayew plays on the opposite side to Mitchell, so how to can blame pressure on him is odd. Ayew was our only outball, he won the 2 corners our goals came from. He works harder than anyone else in the team, that's why he gets selected.

Exactly. And he provokes free kicks continously, I counted at least 3 in the first half. Maybe we should trust in PV that he doesn't select him because of compassion but because of his value for the team.

Ayew has a terrific work rate breaks up play and is an example to the other forwards. Unfortunately he doesn't score goals still until we find a player with a similar work rate he will be first choice for PV.

 


One more point

Well he did yesterday but for some unknown reason it was disallowed!

We looked comfortable in the first half which is quite an accolade considering who we were playing.
Other than a header over the bar from Foden, we did not really look troubled and looked organised and defended well.
Their goal early in the second half lifted them and Mitchellís injury disrupted us.
What I couldnít understand is why Bernardo Silva was given so much space to wreak havoc.
He was picking up the ball in yards of space and drifting in from the right with no real challenge.
Heís an excellent player but I couldnít understand why we didnít get tighter to him or try to force him down the line on his weaker right foot.
Most of their attacks seemed to stem from him and we never got to grips with him.
Unlike the first half we looked disorganised and lacking composure and Haaland exploited this to the full.

Iíve seen someone else mention this but correct me if Iím wrong, Mitchell was still on the pitch for Cityís first goal. He tracked Bernardo Silva across the box but couldnít get near him before the shot on goal. Richards looked out of place on the left, poor decision by Viera but letís not blame him for goals whilst heís on the bench ha.

After a 2 hour drive home with time to reflect of todays game. The key point was the lack off attack, Eze had a good game but watched him enter the box then pass the ball backwards and it ended up going back to our defence. Anderson made a run all the way to their box with no outlet.
On a plus the gents who where sat next to the boy and I in Row BB, I applaud your efforts to wind up the Citeh fans, probably the best comedy duo I've seen for years.
And a special shout out to MH, who graciously got us the tickets. True Palace gent.

We were very poor defending in the second half and gave Haaland far too much room and Silva was totally unmarked when he received the pass on the wing to score the first goal. Mitchell had been dragged into the goal mouth leaving Silva on his own.
